Dr, Parker 'npalied.
St. Paw,, Minn., Nov. 22.-Br.
Parker states that he will return to
England next month. He is obliged to do this because of his health.
"It is not," he said, "the lecturing
whieh prostrates mo. I could lecture evory night, for an indolinito
period,'but I lind thnt my constitution is utterly inadequate to tho
strain upon the system, of those interminable journeys, the hour after
hour in a sleeper, the vast distances,
the endless succession of cities,
which have sprung up, as if they
had been set down upon the plain in
the night, by genii. These appal
me and weigh upon my spirit to
that degree that I am worn out. I
am appalled, amazed und oppressed
by this wonderful country. I could
have no conception of its extent.
Then there is the utter disregard of
the value of money which a foreigner finds here. It seems to me that
one of your dollars is no more than
one of our shillings. If I should be
offered $15 for a letter in England I
should think some one was playing
a joke on me, but here for one letter some one offers 1300."

Inferior Immigrant..
New York, Nov. 22.—Richmond M. Smith, professor of political science in Columbia college, read
a paper last night before the Academy of Political Science upon Em-
migration into the United States.
He said that reasons now exist for
restricting emmigration which did
not formerly exist, and thought well
of enforoing such restrictions. The
class of .immigrants now landing
here is decidedly inferior, owing to
the low steamship rates, the Irish
immigration coming largely from
the poorest portion of Ireland, and
the Germans hailing from tho poorest - section of the Fatherland, the
same being true of Italy. Tbe lecturer further stated that of the
white population of this country today 13 per oent are foreign, while
21 per cent more are of foreign parents. Among the foreign population the percentage of illiteracy and
crime is very large. The speaker
feared the effect of continued emigration upon our national life, but
he did not discuss the methods by
which the restriction was to be accomplished. The sentiment of his
closing remarks favored the strict
enforcement of existing laws regarding the exclusion of criminals, paupers and persons diseased orde
formed.
BY TELEGRAPH.
Tree rUnltag.
Ottawa, Nov. 22.—Prof. Saunders, director of the central experimental farm, has returned from
Northern Michigan and Wisconsin,
where he hnd been procuring young
trees aud grafts, both fruit and
shade, suitable for this climate and
for Manitoba. The seeds procured
are of excellent quality, grown far
norlh, and calculated to produce a
hardy tree. Othor purchases included 100,000 young forest trees
for spring planting, all natives of
the American continent. During
his trip Mr. Saunders had many opportunities of studying improved
methods of growing from seeds, and
expects to turn to good account the
information thus obtained. He expresses himself as hopofnl of the
experiments to be made at tree-
planting in the Northwest. The
atate of Iowa, visited by 111 in
nine years ago, was >i treeless expanse, but on a late visit
there he was agreeably surprised to
find young forests. Mr. Saunders
is at present engaged preparing a report giving the results of the tests
of Russian wheat made throughout
tbe dominion. Tlie reports daily
coming in ure of a satisfactory nature. It seems to be already established beyond a doubt that the
wheat is ready lo out from six to
ten days earlier than red Fyfe sown
at the same time. Samples are to
be submitted to experts to determine
its commercial value, and a chemical analysis will also be made. Arrangements have been completed at
tho farm for testing free of charge
samples of cereals or any agricultural seed sent by farmers and others
in tho dominion. A report giving
the germinating qualities of sample
will bo furnished on return. A
number of wild geese caught near
Grosso Island, River St. Lawrence,
have arrived at the farm. They will
be added to the live poultry collection, and efforts will bo mado to see
if they ean be domestioated.

.    TO PKOTEST AGAINST SErEBATION.
Dudiin, Nov. 29.—People aro arriving in Dublin fram all parts of Ireland to attend the meeting of unionists at which Hartington and Goschen
will bo present. Tho meeting will be
the first of a scries nf protests on tho
part of the people of tho south of Ireland against separation.
THE COLUEKY EXPLOSION.
Lo.vnox, Nor. 29.—The explosion
yesterday in the colliery at Aberdaro,
Wales, was fortunately without any
serious result. The searching parties
sent, duwu into the mine to rescue the
imprisoned men succeeded in bringing
them all lo the surface. The last
batch of imprisoned men were brought
up at a late hour last night.
OKEVYOIVES HIS   REASONS.
Pakis, Nov. 29.—Preaident Grevy's
message to the senate and chamber of
deputies gives as his reason for resigning the presidency, the refusal of nil
the leading men to form a cabinet.
Ho does riot complain of the attitudo
of the chamber, senate or ministry,
but deeply laments the unexpected desertion of those upon whose friendship he thought ho could rely.
oould'nt POOL THE O. O. M.
London, Nov. 29.—The attempt of
the London National Leaguer, to commit Mr. Gladstone to a conspicuous
publio endorsement of the course of
Wilfred Blunt in defying the government's prohibition of the League meetings in Ireland has failed miserably.
Quite naturally it would occur to the
projectors of tho banquet whioh it is
intended to give iu Blunt a honor, that
Mr. Gladstone's presence would add
importance to the testimonial, aud
mako tho affair more complimentary to
Blunt. But one cannot help thinking
that far less innocent motives prompted them to ask the Irish Premier to
preside, and it is without doubt fortunate for tbo liberal leader thut ho
wasrrbletoav.jidfuturecomplications by
falling back on the physician's adviue
to abstain from meetings, nnd particularly from banquets, whore tho excitement resulting from them may impair
his strength and perhaps endanger his
life.   Mr. Gladstone and  many other
{imminent Englishmen entertain the
lighest respect for Sir W. Blunt, and
believe him to have been actuated by
tbe loftiest motives in Ireland, but Mr.
Gladstono to publicly commend his
course by presiding at a banquet given
to endorse that gentlemen's acta would
unquestionably work great injury to
tbe Home Rule cause through the alienation of many, at present, staunch
supporters.

Mr. VauHorne's Vlsll.
Mr. VanHorne, gonorul manager
of tlie Canadian Pacific Railway, is
now in this province making an inspection of the railway under his
management. We prosumo Mr,
VanHorne will visit Wostminstor
before returning east, and we hope
he will interest himself in certain
matters which seem to us necessary
to the success of railway business at
the fresh water terminus. There ia
needed here larger facilities for
handling freight. Tho freight shed
should be enlarged, and the passenger station ought to be provided
with some kind of shelter to protect
passengers and their baggage from
rain whilo going to and from tho
oars. We think the railway company might also be fairly asked to
assist us in impressing tho government with the importance of hastening the completion of the improvements being made at the mouth of
the river. Experience has shown
that freight can be transferred ut
this port far mere cheaply than at
any place on Burrard Inlet, on account of tho absence of high tides.
It would, therefore, be in the interest of the road Mr. VanHorne
represents if a larger proportion of
the transfer business were done at
this port It would be a great advantage to sea-going vessels, also, to
discharge once in awhile in a fresh
water port The str. Premier, for
example, might make connection
with the railway at this city instead
of at Burrard Inlet, and save money
both to her owners and to the railway company, For similar reasons
this ought to be made the port of
of transfer for Banff coal, which
promises to be a considerable item.
The coal could be transferred here
very .much more economically than
on the inlet. The company should
also give assistance towards tbe establishment of a tri-weekly service
between this city and Nanaimo.
Such a service would certainly increase the business which would
come to the railway from that important city. We hope Mr. Van
Home will take a generous view of
these and other matters which affect the interests both of the railway
and the oity.
The Fishery Commission.
Some eastern Canadian journals
express a fear that the conclusions
reached by the fishery commission
now sitting at Washington may be
such as will not lie accepted by tho
people of this country. From expressions: which have come from
Mr. Chamberlain, and the firm attitude of the American secretary of
state and his commissioners, it is
inferred that the United States
government will not accept any set
tlement based upon a strictly literal
interpretation of the present treaty.
They maintain that the treaty was
not intended to be taken literally,
and they will insist upon securing
for American fishermen certain
privileges whieh that treaty does
not give. It is hinted that if no
agreement is reached which would
be satisfactory to the United States
senate, there will be nothing'left
but to enforce the retaliatory measure passed at last session. It is
presumed that Mr. Chamberlain will
not be satisfied to return to London
and report the conference a fizzle,
because such a diplomatic failure
would injure him seriously in the
eyes of British statesmen, and
jeopardise his chances of political
success. For the purpose of avoiding this he may consent to sacrifice
the interests of Canada, and virtually abandon all we have been contending for. If the labors of the
commission should, unfortunately,
come to this, we are inclined to
think its recommendation will nevor
be accepted by the Canadian parliament, before which the agreement
must come for ratification. Oanada
believes that her fisheries are of
great value, and she will never consent to renounce her rights without
receiving an equivalent. The enforcement of the retaliation scheme
provided by congress would doubtless work great mischief lo Canadian interests; but it is by no means
clear that American interests would
not suffer almost to an equal extent.
It would put up a wall between the
two countries over which very little
traffio would be able to pass. We
should be forced to do without many
things which now come from the republic, and the markets soutli of us
would be closed against our products.
But if there is any virtue in the
National Polioy of which protectionists talk so hopefully, this arrangement would make Canada a perfect
paradise. Some of our industries
would suffer seriously, while others
would experience enormous development. Our coal mines, for example,
would have to be worked to their
utmost capacity if the whole of Canada had to be supplied with Oana-
adian coal. But uie prospect is not
one of whieh we have any desire to
experience a practical application,
It would probably have been much
better if, instead of referring the
fishery dispute to a mixed commission of American, English and Canadian representatives, it had been
left to the arbitration of some
thoroughly disinterested statesman
I decision would be final.   If
~m
the finding ol the jfuj^eiit commission is deemed to ]jp unfavorable to
American inteijijsii, it will probably
bo rqjqcjcd by the United States
congi'esB: if it is considered to bo a
surrender of Canadian interests, it
will be dishonored by our own parliament. The conclusion of the
commission is not, therefore, final,
but subject to rejection by tbe two
legislative bodies representing tho
parties interested. Some peoplo
havo expressed tho belief that war
between the two countries would
result from failure iu reaching an
amicable settlement and the enforcement of retaliatory measures. Wc
do not share in that opinion. War
between Great Britain and the
United States would bo rt calamity
too awful for contemplation, and wo
do not regard it as among the things
that are possible. Wo believe that
the enforcement of retaliation would
very speedily open tho eyes of our
neighbors to the fact that a certain
measure of unrestricted intercourse
between Canada and tbe United
States is absolutely necessary to the
prosperity and happiness of both,
and they would not bo slow to per
ceive the folly of cutting off one's
nose to spite one's face. The sentiment of the people of the United
States must not bo judged from tbe
bowlings of Gloucester fishermen,
or the illconsidered utterances of
suoh men as Frye or Blaine.
Scrofula
Ig ono of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often inherited,
but may ho the result of improper vaccination, mercurial poison, uncleanliness,
and various other causes. Chronic Sores,
Ulcers,. Abscesses, Cancerous Humors,
and, in nUlm cases, Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of the blood. This disease can he
cured by the use or Ayor's SarsapariUa.
I inherited ascrof ulons condition of the
blood, -which caused a, derangement of my
whole system. After taking less than
four bottles of Ayer's SarsapariUa I am
Entirely Cured
and, for the past year, have not found it
necessary to use tiny medicine whatever.
I am now in better health, and stronger,
than eyor before.—0. A. Willard, 216

Tho St. Paul Pioneer Press haa been
liiturvlswlhg F. P. Weadon, bf diroe-
mus.-um notoriety, who had sometliing
to aav ab nit tho class called "froaks":
"This is tho time of year when freaks
make a bee-line for New York. There
t h *y nre thicker around the Bowery than
ens* words, and that is saying » good
deal. And it is a great hustle ior some
of tliem to live. The needle-eater has to
chew steel as a steady diet, or die It Is
for him. The fat woman has to exist off
of thu vast quantity of tissue which she
c.irries about her or starve. But then
they uro as independent Da if the tittle
round world was their exclusive property. The Chinese giant sits next tbe Circassian girl and wonders if he will secure
a jj-ood contract for the season, while the
hairy boy and the human skeleton match
ea.h other for drinks that thoy are never
nble to buy. It's pretty hard on the
skeleton, too, for .this is the only season
that he can give his stomach a chance,
and of course ho hasn't any money."
"Docs it pay to become a freak ?" "Well,
i that depends. It pays most o| these
\ people, 1 eyanse they could not earn $1 a
day in any other capacity in the world.
Fat p oplo are hot worth a great deal.
They aro quoted like hogs—at so much
per pound. They average about $30 a
week, although some get as high oa $50 a
week. Gloss-eaters used to get a good
salary, but there are too many, of them
now and tho market has declined. They
get nbout $20, and it is a great strain on
a man. Most of them are going into
some other Hue. Sword-eating Is more
profitable, that la If the eater is a woman.
Sho can easily get $40 a week if she is at
all cIl-voi'. There is nothing in being a
.tattojd man. They can be obtained for
Hia week, but the genuine article costs
& 10. It's monoy out of pocket to be a
Cir niisian girl. There Ib no demand for
them at all. They can. hardly get an on-
; Lrenumt to work for their board. Now
ndl.t-ru'ibor men come high. There are
very few of them that aro really good and
thoy know thoir own worth. It is very
har"l work and a great strain ori a man.
Th 'V don't often last long. The best get
$l(l,( a week. Hairy boys from Burmah
uro in jiuoil d-•maud, and tbey. get $100
also, Snake charmers get pretty good
salaries. The best matte about {60, The

pick tlto.n up anywhere for $15 to $20 a

UNUUIS'HC OFFENSES.
Tbe EiTonrons Cm of Word. In Common
' language.
Not only German children, but the exclusively Knglish population as well, use
many Unglisli expressions which ore
highly imj.ropfr—not common sense.
We call attention to tho following:
"Guess." for suppose or think. "I
guess this is riirht," should bo "I think,"
ccc. Gur'ss means "to hit at rantloin,"
as "I outt't guess how many conts you
have."
"Drive," for to tako riding. "Ho took
his carriage and drove me to town." He
drove tho horse, but not me. It should
be: "Ho took me to town in his carriage."
"dome," for about or probably. "It is
Bomo live miles to town," should be, "It
is abont live miles," etc.
"Storms." ior rains or snows. Storm is
an atmospherical disturbance aud has
referemr.r to air and wind.
''flight iiway," for immediately. "Come
right awny" should be "como at once,"
oriuiineihiitely.
'Tarty," for person. Party is a gathering of people, not an individual. "Who
is that pnrcv?" when ono is mount,
shoul I be: "Who is that poison or Individual ?"
"Posed," for Informed. As, "Ho is not
post -rl on Unit mutter; post htm on tho
Subject." Post menus to put up a sign or
to drop a letter in the postotiiee.
"Stopping," for staying. As, "He io
stopping with us," for "He is staying with
Try and come, do write, Ac, for try to
come, to do so, to write, &c. "I shall try
and como to see you soon," should be,
"I shall try to come," &c.
Funny, for odd, strange. As "it seems
very funny to me that he does not come,"
should be, "it seems very strange," &c.
Funny is something amusing, fullof fun.
Depot for station. "I will go to the
Allentown depot," should bo, "I will go
to tho Allentown station." A depot is a
terminal point. Station, a place along the
route.
Healthy, for wholesome or healthful.
"This is not healthy." should be, "this
is not wholesome." "This, frnit is
healthy," means that it is sound not rotten. "This fruit is healthful," means that
it is rondusive to health, not injurious to
health.
Just aa soon, for just as lief. " I would
just as soon do it aa not," "should be, "I
would just as lief do it," etc. Soon means
in a short time, not rather.
Trading Batfc
Studies in natural history, calculated to
excite tho wonder of a young student,
abound in the western regions of America. I know I wos vastly entertained
during a trip through Arizona and New
Mexico by my own observation ol the
mountain rats, popularly known thero as
"trading rats.'1 I used to lie awake sometimes in order to watch thoir pranks by
the light of my camplire. Their antica
and gambols reminded me of young kit-
tons at play. Thoy often appeared to
be nt a game of "tag." They look like
common rats, save that they are lighter
In color, their tails are shorter and thicker, and their noses are less pointed.
They live in hollow trees and in the
rocks. 	
But the very funny thing is that, thougl:
they are born thieves, little kleptomania every one, they always return something in tbe place of every article taker
away: and a queer thing, too, is thu fact
that they never steal articles of foo.l.
Ouo nigutl felt a slight stir about my
head. Cautiously opening my eyes, I
sriw one of these rats tugging manfully ut
■ny saddle, which I was using ns a pillow.
As the saddle was one of California stylo,
and weighed about thirty pounds, the
otlorts ofthe little animal seemed to bu
very ambitious for an animal of his size.
They take away cartridges, knives and
forks, or anything else they can carry. I
have been told by an old prospector that
he had a whole outfit of such things
"rustled" (that is, stolen) in one night,
and that various objects were returned
in its place.
Articles taken from ono place have
been found in * shanty twenty miles
distant I met one day at a railway
station an old ranchman, who lived at
least twenty miles from the road, and
chancing to speak of these rats, he said:
"I found in my -shack' the other day.
quite a collection ot spoons, forks and
knives hid under a pile of rubbish that
had been brought there by the littlo
thieves. Where they came from I don't
know, but I know that they carried ofl
in turn a whole box of 45-75 Winchester
cartridges."
I laughed and replied: "Well, I have
your cartridges, and you probably have
my spoons, Tor out of a dozen I hnvo
only two left, As the cartridges will not
it my Sharps 40-70, they are no use to
me. So if you bring tho spoons to Flinn'o
store I'll see that the cartridges are left
there and you can get them," Tho
change was effected in the course of a
few days, and the spoons proved to be
mine and the cartridges his.

Next to this thero is a bonutifullv

that again there is t further atmosph.-rc
consisting to a large extent of hydrogen,
the lightest substance known, reaching,
It may be, a million miles or more farther
into space. Look at the sun slirning
brightly above us; it seems a pietui-.r ol
quietude and stately grandeur. Jn point
of fact it Is something very ditlcrunt.
There is nothing with which a man is
acquainted that is in such wild confusion
as iho surface of tho sun. Talk of startling volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, nud
storms-the violence of all terr atrial
commotions since tbo world was Inlinh-

knee on the faco of that bolllug caldron
we call the sun. A cyelon * on tbe
earth's surface that whirls nroun 1 lit tun

hurricane carrying all before it; hut
.there are solar whirlwinds and (lory
floods that sweep along nt ono hundred

"It Saved Mf Ufa"
Is a common expression, often heard
from those who have realized, hy personal use, the curative powers oi Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. "Icannotsay enough
ln praise of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing as I do that,, but tor lta use, I
should long since have died from lung

About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, whioh deprived
me ot sleep and rest, j I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at once.   By continued —

Ayer's Cherry Pootoral saved my lifo.

confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Socuruy offered to polley holders in
iinBurpassed by any Company doing bus!-
neHsln Canada,
It has no -schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the polioy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, Its cash -statement showing evory Item of Income and how expended.
Its position Is nscertnlned annually from
a detailed valuation In which every Horn
of liability Is included.
Its progress has been unexampled in
the history of Insurance in Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after threo
years, and non-forf el table after two years'
existence.
Its protltK nre distributed upon an equitable bai-dR. The profits to one class of

The l.lool.t Meeting.
London, Nov. 29.—Tho reception
accorded to Lord Hartington in Dublin to-day, while it was not exactly
cordial, waa perhaps all that that
nobleman could expect. A judicious
mingling of hisses and cheers greeted
hit ears, and aa both kinds of welcome
were furnished, the statesman was enabled to take his ehoiee. The meeting
to-night wat to orowded that an overflow meeting had to bo held near by.
Fully 8,000 people weto present at
both, and thousands wero turned away
disappointed. Tho Loinster hall meeting was most enthusiastic. Prolonged
cheers were given for the. Queen and
a great amount of patriotism was
evinced. Lord Hartiiigtnn said ho
wished to look at Ireland and viow the
Irish question as affecting the property
of the country apart from English imperial views as affecting tho futuro of
the empire He would admit that a
majority of the peers in Ireland were
in favor of home rule. But he refuted
to admit that the majority was necessarily as large as it appears from ita
parliamentary representations, because under tho preaent ayatem it is
possible that tho unionist majority, although numerically vory nearly as
large aa tho .majority, might not be represented. The (iladstonians had
nevor ahown that Ireland would be
satisfied with the limited home rule
that they ottered, and there waa evory
indication that tho nationalists would
be satisfied with nothing except absolute separation, Tho .straggle waa
more for possession of the land than
for a refurm of the government, and
the Gladatonians admitted that tho
land question must be left for
an Irish parliament to deal with.
Mr. Ooschen attacked tho attempts of
tho Gladatonians to induce England
and Scotland to entrust tho Government of Ireland to a band of revolutionists. The lesson taught by this
meeting, he said, wus the position of
tho commercial and classes un the Irish
question. Were the votes of tho irrer-
chanta, bankers and shippers without
whom agriculturalists oould scarcely
exist, to ouunt as nothing, ho asked)
Ho folt tho greatest sympathy with
the Irish tenants and declared that
men who wore denouncing the national league for spreading the doctrine of
repudiation of onntructs wero Ireland's
truest friends. The homo rulers proposed to osti'rrci.e capital and separate
Ireland frum England, but England
and English capital hud often helped
Ireland anil would help her nr/uin.
