Fight with aFyt»«.
Toward the end ot 1882 several English
newspapers reprinted from a Journal
Subllshed lu Singapore the acoount ol a
ght between a man and a python, which
would indicate the Guy Livingstone
type of muscular heroes Is not'sxtinct
among Europeans In that settlement
Ono day news was brought to tho
curator ot tho museum that a great
python, which woe oh exhibition there,
had escaped from Its box and was careering about tho building, no-doubt thoroughly enjoying the flight ot the attendants and visitors. The brute was no less
than twenty-two feet long.
At that moment the curator happened
to have a bottle of osrbollo sold in his
hand. '• It was a most exciting tussle
when they oome together, and for a few
moments the shivering native spectators oould not moke out whioh was snake
and which was man," '
The guardian of the museum's treasures hod secured a Arm grip of the
python's throat, but on ths other hand
iho,serpent had eolled Its crashing folds
around his legs.
Had lt been a question of strength
merely the bos must have won the day;
the ourator would Soon have been only
fit to make a stuffed mummy in bis own
museum. -But otter a struggle or two
he managed cleverly to decant the bottle of osrbollo sold down the reptile's
throat—the grip on which he had never
relaxed.
The boa hod evldently'been uncoous-
tonied to the drink—say, lt evidently
dlsagieed with him. The oolls loosened
from tho curator's limb., a convulsive
shiver went through'the entire twenty-*
two foot of soaks, and In a lew minutes
the great python was desd I
Alter which lt Is to be hoped that the
spectators gratefully brought their deliverer something reviving, for wrestling
with a python In the tropics must be decidedly warm work.-[Good Words,
i.'For Wise Km sad Worn To Beat,
Two women approached eaoh other
from opposite directions recently on
Seventh street.;
One was' looking Into the shop windows, and the attention of the other was
attracted to the opposite aide ot the
street.  They oollkfed.
Both looked around with a frown and,
glaring at each ether, sold:
" You clumsy thing, do you want the
earth?"
A little further down the street one ol
the women oolllded with a smart-look
log young man.
 shs saw that lt was a man who'
had brushed against her she smiled snd
said: " I bog pardon," In her mdst insinuating tons.
He replied, ss ha tipped his hat t :
"Don't mention it, please." -

IMPERIAL
THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
ILUIIIIIO.I
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbi ak Newspaper and
Printing Concern''was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
ef New Westminster, to be known ss the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned aad controlled by
the British Colombia ' Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria ond Vancouver. The object of
the new company Is to continue the publication of tho British Columbus newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those1 whose Individual Interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Thoro will bo no
slackening of .the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and it. patrons may rely open
receiving rail value for their money.
The Columbia)) will continue to be entirely independent tn both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered in the public interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book ud
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over hy Mr. T. R.
Poarsen, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for bis own benefit.
It Is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained tn this city, and
the new company asks for publlo patronage oh'the ground that it la engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public wellaro. It asks that the Col.
umbmh be judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as Its policy Is
enconsistt with its professions, In con-
sequence of this business change all accounts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to ...

The China Route.—The distance
from Hong Kong to Vancouver by the
route the Abyssinia traveled is about
6000 miles, and from Yokohama to
Vancuuvor 4300 miles. Tho time occupied in traveling this distance by the
Abyssinia waa 13 days 14 hours, or a
fraction over 131 miles per hour for
every hour of the time between tho
two ports.—fdiKouver Herald. The
time between Hong Kong and Vancouver is very nearly the samo as between Vancouver and Liverpool, so
that measured by time, British Columbia is just abont half-way between

nf Grip shows how well this fact Is appro-
elatcd-lls CurloonsonJhp passing political events of the eonhtry being even
more eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though tho latter Is equal lo that of any
similar publication on Ihe continent.
The publishers of Orlp are making ex '
tensive improvement, for IsM.- The old
ooverlstobe discarded, and tho journal
will hereafter comprise 1] pages, and be
printed on heavy loned and calendered

executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on tbo continent Th.
advts. will lie compressed and moro systematically arranged:. while similar Im
provements will m made as to th. letterpress, A new and handsome design will
