Reports from the states in the
winter wheat belt leave no room for

A leading minister of New York
was preaching from the text—"Thou

The other night he began Utrngtthur

A little girl was sent aoros. the
street to a neighbor's for milk. The
cow which tho neighbor owned had
ceased to give milk for the time and
there was none to be bad. " There
is no milk today," said tha little
girl on her return. " No milk," said
her mother, "What's the matterI"
"She didn't tell what was the matter," was the reply, " bat I guess the

Tho uses of saccharin, whioh la a
hundred times sweeter than sugar,
are thus set down by tbe American
Druggists Not being a carbohydrate
like sugar, it does not affoct the
digestive process, and passes out
through the urine without change.
By means of it the food of diabetic
patients may be sweetened without
unfavorable effects, gaooharin is
also likely to be found a serviceable
"anti-fat" substitute (or sugar,
From ita anti-formentive properties
it will be valuable aa a substitute
for sugar in food for dyspeptics, infants and convalescents. As an addition to preparations for preserving

An Austrian chemist named Dr,
Janumann states, in a letter published in a Vienna, journal, that he
has invented a fluid of most terribly
destructive powers, the use of which
would soon render war impossible,
He claims that "thii fluid, when
brought into oontaot with the air,
after the explosion of a shell in
whioh it haa been contained, is
transformed into a gas, whioh, being
heavier tban the air, descends to the
ground, killing all mon and animals
within its roach, and, moreover, destroying iron, lironse and other metals, aa well as setting all inflammable things on fire." If the claim to
the invention is well founded, humanitarians will console themselves
by tho reflection that the use of
such an agent would plaoe weak nations on an equality with their
stronger iiirighbors.—J/Viii

that paper that he ha.
lo? the statement that:  	
■hortlyl.au. a conciliatory Tetter ex
planing his went rescript condemning
the prevailing Irish method.. The explanation will be issued solely because
ol the unexpected unanimity of- the
Irish and the violence oi the opposition evinced by the national league,
and it is further learned by the writer
that his holiness, as a result ol additional study, ol the Irish question, will
within a short time declare himself in
favor bf home rule and appeal to
the Engli.lt government to grant it.
FIKED TWO SHOTS.
Bdchabist, May 8. — Yetterday
evening two gun .hots were fired into
the royal palace by a man who was afterwards arrested. The nan wu In-

act had no political significance. The
prisoner wss dismissed'after being examined. The police are greatly irritated at his dismissal.

Losdon, May 8.—The banquet given to Hr. Pamell at the Eighty Club
to-night was ln every respect successful and altogether a moat significant
affair. Upwards ol 60 English and
Scotch memben of parliament were included in the list of those present, the
greatest number ol liberal oommonen
that ever met together in honor cf the
Irish leader, and there wae also in attendance a remarkably huge representation of the wealth, culture and influence of Great Britain not immediately associated with politics. The chair
w«. occupied by Mr. R. Burdon Hal-
dane, the meqiber lorHaddingtonshire,

wa. proposed by Mr. Ackland, MP.
for Launoeaton, seconded by Mr. E.
T. Knox, Fellow ol All Souls, Oxford,
a Protestant and an Ulster man though
an ardent home ruler. Hr. Parnell's
remarks were pregnant with the spirit
of Irish autonomy, yet hia address waa
railed to a scholarly plane, which entirely reauw«l it Iron the data ot political .peechea. He wu warmly congratulated at the conclusion of his
speech and overwheloned with adulation, by the speakers who preceded
and followed him.

Lonhoh, Hay 8.— The uneaalgeta
caused by the condition of the Emperor Frederick rapidly Increase., and it
ia now lured that another crisis is
close at hand, and the general opinion
ia that a renewal ol the official bulletins,
the issuance of which jtru declared
only yeaterday morning to be unneoas-
sary, ia intended to prepare the nubile
for the wont The misleading character of the bulletins may be nadir/
seen by the statement that the
"Emperor feels languid," when it
ia positively known that his
physical wukness hu reached
the stage ol complete prottnliou, and
that the ducharge Irom hi. throat hu

ing cattle, This gentleman' has for
somo time beon practising tho art,
and recommended it to all stock-
raisers for reasons set forth in his
communication. The, subject lias
oooupisd.^. good, ,_4e_, ,pi ..aftent jon
for years, and there tasTreon a wide
difference of Opinion with 'respect
to it'"-Very' recently several' experienced 'poittonS have pronounced
againit tho practice. Not long ago
the Royal1 Veterinary' Association
passed resolutions denouncing it. It
is also stated that Mr. Gordon, president of lbs Humane ' Society of
Wisconsin,'who has been fomiUar
with the results of dehorning cattle
in Ireland for a long time, has
stated that five or six years elapse
before the actual rtftinlt can be
seen;and:theri it appears in thefo]rin
of nasal gleet, fever, etc.' Six years
will demonstrate that cattle find
new ways of fighting, Mr. Gordon
further says that no man should buy
a bull rfor grading or- a heifer for
breedihg:thal is the offspring of dehorned'paients. In the. practice
the fattier can see a saving pf labor
and feed, but he had better make
haste slowly in this matter. In the
operation, the frontal sinus is open,
the nervous system is deranged and
never recovers from the shook, lt
may be advisable to dehorn beef
animals, but it would be safe to look
for more light before dehorning cows.
Several years ago an attempt was
madbtework thebed of the lower
Fraser ;lor gold. The machinery
employed was a powerful steam
pump which operated through an
iron cylinder. It was expected that
by means of these appliances the
gravel and sand could be raised from
the botton of tho river, ahd the gold
saved by the ordinary process of
washing. The scheme proved an
entire failure, and after the expenditure of a good deal of money it was
abandoned. It is commonly believed, however, that there is lots of
gold in the bottom of the Fraser.
Indeed, one can scarcely resist such
a conclusion. It was froui the low
banks and the hereof this river that
the early miners made their fortunes,
Gold wat found abundantly in the
sand and gravel as far into the water at the miners found it convenient
to work, and thero can be no reasonable doubt that the precious metal
still lies in the river bed in large
quantities. What has been taken
out *at.|ndouVtedly,;;(g.rried 'down
by the action of the water; and as
the bed of tho stream .cannot have
changed very greatly betweon Hope
and Yale, one may expect the'bottom to prove at least quite as rioh
as the bonks have done. Besides,
gold it probably being carried down
the river every year at the. present
time just as it had been in the yenrs
before the great milling excitement.
Ool. Gibson, who has been in this,
provinoe for gome time with a view
to ascertaining the circumstances,
proposes to undertake the working
of this field. The colonel has had
much experience with such work
elsewhere, and is said to have expressed himself fully satisfied' of
the existence of great wealth in our'
river, and of hit ability to' make
use oi ib The plan to be adopted
it somewhat similar to the one
tried here-years ago,'but -Ool.. Gibson seems to havo the utmost confidence (hat the machines ho proposes to employ will -dp. the work
required of them. .He., is - .proceeds
ing to England, but. will return
with two wa*binea wiiich He pro
mises to-- h»« ready for i Working
by Augut. His plan: is to rent
thete machines to any person or
compatty wishing to operate tliom,
and taking for his share ten per
cent of the gold produced. It is
much to-be hepod that this, enterprise *ay be successful. If the
- gold deposits on the bottom of the
Fraser can be profitably raised,
there is a very wide field open for
those who will dossbss,. ft. The
extent of ground' Is largo in superficial area, And no otic can tell how
deep the pay dirt may go. Wo
should not Wonder if the lower
Fraser will supply material'', enough
to keep large numbers of men  pro
fitably employ*1 **** •** «"**•' *",m'
ber of yean. Wben that has been
worked, ont,- mine one will likely
undertake to place similar machinery in other parts of the river, above
Yale, *iere far richer results, may
be looked far. We hope Ool. Gibson's scheme may be so successful
tu to exceed even hia own sanguine
expectations.. His proposal is virtually •.-new, industry, beflotUM it
touches t phase oj gold'mining
never bairn - .aucceufully undertaken in thit country, and it is
aimed at • bidden provincial resource whiok otherwise would r probably MWMM to be counted in
the protfntihl atsets. Once let it

According to a Bangor, (lie.) corro
ipoiuk-nt, thn 1'Giiobscot, or more proper-
y, tliu Tari'iitino liulirum, havo dwindled
rr.atly ill ntimbcrra during the post fow
iecades, nnd there remains to-day but a
orryruiiinant of.tlie powerful tribe who
n early ciilonlsUllJiKMvere such a pow-
crrful fuctor in the interesting squnGUcj
>( thia region, and who were the only
oilmen ol the Eastern country able to'
wallop tha Mohawks. But what few
here are left seem lo get along very
roll, and tbey ore an nitoreslinj* lot.
i'heir reservation consists of all tho
standi in the Penobscot .river between
rldlown and Linroln, a distance of.
hirly-flvo miles.' Thoso islands are Mil
n number, with an aggregate area of
iliou't -li-'iUO acres -quite enough room for
lie 4011 Tarratines who still linger in the
and of their lathers. "
Tho principal settlement is tho village
in Oldtown island, Iho lowermost of the
rlbe'fr possessions, where, besides numur-
iui neat frame dwellings, thoy have a
well-appointed chapel and schools. The
ribe are all Catholics, and a good priest,
•nther Trudelle, looks eareiully after
he dusky flock, while three Sisters of
rierey—(iabriel, Margaret and Christina
-teach the schools and look generally
rfter the moral and domestic condition
if the tribe.
i Tbe Tarratines maintain a tribal form
if government, electing annually a (iov-
rrnor and Lieutenant-Governor, nnd a
[dogate to tlie State Legislature, which
■hey are allowed.   Politically they nro
■ivided into two parties—the "Uid," or
fouscri/ativo, and the "Xew," or Progres-
live.   Most of the men Hud employment
1 tho woods or upon tho drives, niHex-
t river drivers- they are, as a rule*
ere is some attention paid to ngriirult-
-., and some few of tlie men make tlieir
vinz by piloting sportsmen through
ie Northern wilds to tho favorito haunts

Tiey are of every conceivable shnpo mul
I all sizes, down to a baby brisket that
1st holds a pea. To make tliuae iuikis
liings from ribbons of ash requires, bit-
lies skill, the patience of Job. All tho
ear round they keep a big ston in l-jlti-
Iwn, stocked with baskets und tliu nth <:
jticles for distribution to retr.ilcrs all
ler the country, while in summer tor-
|n memben of the tribe vent tlio

wilh which sho broods over him when

liimt comes an old woman, wrinkled, in-

New Time Table.
By reforring to the clinnged time
tablo, it will be soon that the stoamer
Gladys will hereafter leavo for up-rivor
ports on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. This change is made in consequence of the fact tbat the Irving is
sailing on Mondays, Wednesdays and
Friday., and it is not desirable that
both steamers should take the same
days. By the new arrangement there
will be a daily steamboat service on the
river above this city, and we have no
doubt but these increased transportation facilities will bo highly appreciated by all.
The Case ot All Sam.
With reference to an item in thi.
paper yesterday about tlie case of Ah
Sam, from which it might be inferred
that Mr. Rankin was in default in not
appearing to prosecute, this was,not
precisely correct. Strong representation, were made to the court for leniency to the defendant, and evidence
having been given of his previous
good character, Mr. Rankin generously
did not press the matter, and the court
allowed the accused to go upon his
giving substantial bonds for his good
behavior in future.
The Pioneer Steamship.   -
The .... Abyssinia arrived in Vancouver lut evening from China and
Japan, having made the voyage from
Yokohama in 13 days 22 hours. She
brought a clean bill of health and the
doctor's inspection failed to discover
any sickness on board. Her passenger
list comprised 3G saloon, 3 sccond-cluss,
1 European, 2 Japanese and 887 Chinese steerage passengers. Of the Chinese
226 are for Vancouver, 6 for Now
York and 350 for San Francisco. Her
cargo consists of 1002 tons of Chinese
and Japanese merchandise. The Abyssinia will proceed to San Francisco on
Sunday where she will discharge the
freight and passengers for that port.

The Unseen'. Birthday. .
The question of having a Queen's
birthday celebration i> being generally
discussod thoughout the city, but as
yet no definite aotion ha. boon taken
in tHe matter: On; the 24th the Vancouver and Westminstor crlckot clubs
play a match in this city, and it i. very
Sroboble a prise meeting of the N. W.
liflo As.ooi.tion will bo held on the
umedny. Thole are attraction., but
not iufllclont to draw a large number
of people to the city, and it will bo
necessary to arrange for a regular scries of athletic sports if it it the with
of our citizen, that outsider, should
visit tho city on that day. The celebration ill Nanaimo is not likely to bo
largoly patronised by the people Of
Westminster, and the two cities being
so far apart the celebrations will not
conflict. The. timo botween now snd
the 24th is short, and, if anything is
to be done in tho way of celebrating
the occasion, the sooner the matter ia
taken in hand the greater chance there
will bo for its sucoess.
Manahan*. Brick lard.
Builders will have no lack of tht
bet brick for the extemlve building
operation, which it is expected will
be carried on thi. year. Oar enter-
prising brick maker., Manahan Bro..,.
are .paring neither pains nor expente
in patting their yard into a atate of
efficiency for Ihe seuon't work. They
have just imported a new machine for
turning out pressed briok—tho latest
Improvod Martin— from Hamilton,
Ont. Tho full capacity of thi. machine
it 40,000 in twenty-four bouts, but
about half that amount is all that can
be conveniently handled. Eaoh briok
is subjected to a pressure of several
ton., thereby giving It groat solidity
and smoothness. A luge "M" will
be stamped upon every brick to denote
tho maker., and to satisfy buyer, that
they are getting what they pay for. lt
has been generally conceded that Manahan Bros have a superior clay supply,
tnd with their improved facilities they
expect to turn out briok wicond to none
in tho province. With their new machinery they en mako taote brick and
employ fewer hnnd. than formerly,
Everything will bo ready for a start in
a few day., and weather permitting, a
•mall kiln ol 150,000 will be burned
by the first nf next month. Larger
kiln, will be burned throughout tho
naaou. This enterprise dosorve. ovory

routine nature.
Jnbcsli Suow, Gunning Cove, N. S.,
writes: "I was completely prostrated
with the asthma, -but hearing of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectrio Oil, I procured a bottle, and it done mo so much good that I
got another, and before it was used, I
was well. My win wu cured of a bad
cold by the uie of half a bottle. It goes
like wild-lire, and makes cores wherever
It is used."

to Cal., to-visit Dr. McSwain, whoso
health ia still in an unsatisfactory condition. Tt is f*he intention of the latter to proceed to Now York, or, if necessary, to Europe to undergo a surgical operation, and it is probable Dr.
Doardon willoccompany him.
Joseph Rusan, Percy, writes; ''I was
induced to try Dr. Thomas' Kclcotrio Oil
for'a lameness which troubled me for
throe or four years, nntl I fouud it the
best article I ever used. It has bucn a
great blessing to me." Frauds may imitate Dr. Thomu* Eclectric Oil in appearance and name, but In everything else
they aro dead failures.
-The ex-Member for Comox.
A member of the British Columbia
colonial legislature, named Stenhouse,
ha. resigned his seat? because he hu
become a Mormon, and intends ta join
a Mormon colony. This i. a curious
case. Same yeara ago Stenhouso'. parent, resided in New York, where they
had come from Utah, after repudiating
Mormnnism. His father, T. B, H,
StenhoUB., had b.on a Mormon prophet, eposilo, miracle worker, editor,
missionary, and polygamist, high in
the councils of Brighnm -Young, and
revorod a. a saint of tho first wutor,
so to speak. His wife. Fanny alto
turned Mormon when she married
him. Aftor giving a quarter of a century of hard sorvico to Mormonism,
both of tliom whllo living in Utah began to'doubt tho truth of that religion,
and after a time when they cast it off
wore assaulted by Brighnm Young's
avenging angels, from whom they barely escaped with tlieir lives. Ho went
to New York, where he found employment on the daily press until his death
some year. ago. In 1873 Appleton &
Co. published a large octavo volume,
of wnich ho wus tho author, "Tho
Rooky Mountain Saints," in which he
gavo the marvelous oxperioncee of hi.
career u a Mormon. ' About tho same
time his wifo Fanny wrote a smaller
volume, "Expoie of Polygamy in
Utah," in which the told the harrowing story of her life thore. It is of one
of their sons about whom we now hear
from tho capital of British Columbia
that he hu returned to the barbarous
religion in which he,' wu. born, but
which was repudiated with loathing by
both hi. parents beforo their death.—
