Never go to bod witii cold or damp
fuet.
Never lean with the book
anything that is cold.
Never begin a journey until the
breakfast has been eaten.
Never take warm drinks and then
immediately go out into the cold.
After exercise of any kind never
ride in an open carriage or near the
window of a car for a moment; it is
dangerous to health, or even life.
Never omit regular bathing, for,
unless the skin is in regular condition, the cold will close the pores
and favor congestion or other
diseases.
When hoarse, speak as little ns
possible until the hoarseness is recovered from, o'se the voice may be
permanently lost, or difficulties of
the throat be produced.
Merely warm the back by tbe
fire, nnd never continue keeping the
back exposed to the heat after it has
become comfortably warm. To do
otherwise is debilitating.
Never stand still in cold weather,
especially after having taken a slight
degree of e.;eroise. and always avoid
standing on the ice or suow where
a person is exposed to a cold wind.
When going from a warm atmosphere into a cooler one keep the
mouth almost closed, so that the air
may be warmed by its passage
through the nose ere it reaches the
lungs.—W. Y. Midland Ihpresi.

*»•*. irsi lie a fear er War.
The present year is the fifth year
of modern times in whicli the aggregate of the figures is twenty-Bve,
and there will be but five more years
iu which such a combination is possible prior to the year 2")19. Probably but few have ever heard of
the old prophecy, which runs as
follows:
Tu ev-ry . -rave ye;r," of our Lord,
Wire i tr'e bum of tlie figure-t htwenty-
fvc,
Some  wi'i-'^ke  ' '"i^om  will draw tbe
•word,
]*ut p-vcetvt nations  in  peace  shall
l*.r ive.
Students of modem history will
readily reca'l how fatihfully this prophecy has been fuliilled in the four
previous years to which it  applied.
In 1699 Russia, Denmark and
Poland formed the coalition against
Sweden which inaugurated the great
war thut ended in the disastrous defeat of Charles Xl [ at Pultowa.
The year 1789 will ever be memorable on account of the breaking
out of the French revolution.
The year 1798 witnessed the
campaign of Bonaparte in Egypt
and the formation of the second European coalition against France.
In 1879 war broke out between
England and Afghanistan, followed
by the invasion of the latter country by British troops.
Jn what manner the prediction is
to lie verified in 1888 remains yet to
be seen, hut the present condition of
Europe seems to promise an abundant fulfillment of tho prophecy.—
P,'i'hide'jlt'a ItiqvWt,'.
rli.lii.rn and *hre».
A chilrl shouid be in bed as the
fowslaro,atsundownritleast. And he
should be allowed to rise in the
morning as soon as he wakes. It
is not only torture but an unhealthy
mischief to compel children to lie in
bed awake two hours to prevent disturbing older people. The morning
sun is most essential to plant lifo.
A conservatory should always, if
possible, be on the east side- of a
house. It is equally true that
the morning sun is most valuable
for animal vigor, arid that includes
human beings. We, all of us, are
brcoking both ends of the law.
Our sleep should be taken earlier,
and wo should never fail of getting
the rooming sun. I abominate
night parties for children. I be
lieve every physician does, lt is
not so much the exposure and the
rating in the night, and the bud associations formed (of a high-toned
sort, possibly), but the breaking inlo the sleep habit. Equally bad is
it for children to study in the even-
in*. It gorges their brains with
blood, and if they sleep they dream.
I had n little patient of 12 years,
who wns wasted and nervous, and
whose dreams woro filled with h'S
problems. It was a marvel and
pride to his pruents that tho young
ster worked out hard proulcms in
his slr-ep, such ns hu failed to master
when awake, r'.ut he came near
his tinnl problem, I locked up his
books at 1 o'clock. He must not
touch one after supper. He must
play and romp, and then go to bed.
He is now robust. You cannot
emphasize too strongly tiro mischief
of children's night study.— An Old
Physician.

Ottawa, Feb. 3.—Sir John A. Mao-
Donald this morning Baid the report of
the fisheries commission having submitted a draft of the treaty to the U.
8. exooutite was without a word of
foundation as the commission would
sit at least 10 days more. The government had received no intimation
that the commissioners had agreed to
submit certain questions for arbitration. He does not indicate any hope
of a satisfactory settlement being
i reached and the Dominion government
ia greatly embarrassed and disappointed in the result.

treaty v;ith Great Britaiu. The committee on foreign affairs of the Gonais
made two amendments to tin's treaty
which wts sent to the I1011..0 by Secretary Bayard. The first amendment
provides that persons shall be extradited for committing of embezzlement
and larceny of Bums exceeding $50,
or .*. 1.0. Tiie second amendment provides that persons charged with assault
upon life, with explosive?, shnll also be
subject to extradicrrrn. The debate in
the seiiat ■ of this treaty shows that tho
ronjuri.y • ■* members were not disposed
to approve any treaty with Great
Brit"!n which did not adjust all dif-
ficu . es between the V. S. and that
county, including the question of
fisheries and also the jurisdiction of
the 0. S. over Alaskan waters.

H.-rrlb era Walevlee We.eraa.
We aro called upon to-day to announce the death of Mr. Joseph West-
wood, of Rookhall Farm, East Wei-
lington, a veteran of Waterloo, who
diod on Sunday morning at hia resilience. Tho deceased gentleman wu
born in Stourbridge, Worcestershire,
England, on June 10th, 1792, ana
when quito young entered one of the
British regimenii as drummer. With
this regiment he took part in the glorious battle of Waterloo, in whioh the
famous Duke of Wellington lr?a the
Brit sh army to fame and glory,' and
routed the French army under the '
leadership of the great Napoleon.
After leaving the army ho worked at
his trade- blacksmith —in England
until I80O, when he went to the United
States, and finally oame to Nanaimo
and entered the employ of the Vancouver Coal Company as blacksmith.
Shortly afterwards ho took up the
land in the Millstresm Valley, now
known as tho East Wellington Colliery,
which he sold to Mr. R. D. Chandler,
of San Francisco, a few years ago, for
over $100,000. The deceased was a
remarkably healthy and strong man,
and was able to get about until about
nine days before his death, when he
was confined to his room, but not to
his bed. He passed quietly away on
Sunday morning, surrounded by hit
dunghtcr-in-law and grand children.—

How (o Mark a Ballol-
Tomorrow the electors of St.
Andrew's ward will have the opportunity of electing two persons to
represent them in the city council.
The last election in this ward was
conducted with such unaccountable
carelessness on the part of the
deputy retiirning-oflioer that it was
impossible to tell who had obtained
a majority of legal votes. It was
also discovered that some of tho
voters seemed to hnve very imperfect notions witii respect to the proper way to mark a ballot. This has
arisen partly from the fact that in
different countries different methods
are pursued. Below we present a
sample form of ballot paper, which
will show clearly how ti ballot
should be marked:
St. Andrew's Ward.

JONF.8,
2  '
ROIIEKTSO.V.
3
Smith.
X
On the ballot paper as above represented the cross opposite Smith's
name means that the person who
marked it wished to vote for Smith.
The only mark provided by law is a
cross, as shown. A straight line
will not answer. Moreover, the
mark must be at the right-hand side
of the name, and in the space on the
right side of the perpendicular line,
as shown iu the diagram. There
must be no mark on tlie name, and
no other mark whatever on any port
of the ballot, or it may be rejected
by the returning offioer. The ballot paper on Saturday will contain
three names: Henry Hoy, Thos.
Ovens and John Reid. Any voter
may vote for two of these, by making a cross opposite the names of
the two for whom he wishes to vote
—but if he votes for more than two,
his ballot will be spoiled. It is not
necessary, however, to vote for moro
than one. Voting for only one
candidate is known as "plumping,"
and this practice has become quite
common. We do not know that
any objection enn be made against
it. We hope thit on Saturday
every elector will feel it his duty to
vote, and to vote for the right man.
The River Front.
During the past weeks a considerable quantity of earth, and some
small trees and rooks, have been
sliding down from the river bank
on to the front road, and men have
had to be employed clearing it away.
The same thing occurred lasts pring,
and it will keep on recurring every
year until some plan is brought into
operation to protect the front of the
hill. These slides have resulted
from tke cuttings made by the railway oompany when the road was
being built. While the bank was
covered with grass and sod, it remained firm; but as soon as tho top
had been removed, the concrete was
exposed to the frosts of winter under whose influence it was brought
into a condition which made it
crumble easily as soon as the frost
disappeared. No one acquainted
with the character of the soil expected anything else. The railway
contractors took no pains to slope
the bank or protect it against the
aotion of frost. We think the city
oouncil ought to considor well and
without delay some plan that will
prevent any further sliding of tho
bank, In many places the distance
between Columbia st. and tho front
road along the river is very small;
and if no protective measures are
employed it will very soon happen
that Columbia st. will begin to go
down the hill. The large maple
tree and the breastworks opposite
Albert Crescent are on tho very
verge of a precipice, and may go
down on to the railway track or into the river any time. This would
bo o serious misfortune, for the tree
is a very decided ornament, and
these breastworks, rude though they
may be, are the city's only defence
against the hostile guns of an enemy.
The work of putting the river bank
in a safe condition will cost a considerable sum of money; and as the
trouble hu arisen wholly through
the excavations made by the railway company, that company should
undoubtedly pay the cost. It is a
question whether the hill ought to
ba evonly sloped and covered with
grass and aod, or protected at the
bottom by crib work. If crib work
. il und, it will have to be very
strong, er the frost will push it out
'y'Sf plaoe and destroy the whole
scheme. We believe that if the
bank wai sloped and the surfuco
■own with gran in the early spring,
k Md would soon be formed sufficient
to prevent the earth from sliding.
Thii would also add very greatly to
the appearance of the hank, which
ii now in many places anything but
attractive. All Indian houses
•hould alio be removed and the
place kept free from obstruction.
We hop*j:our new council will take
thii matter in hand without delay
and devise such a scheme ib will
permanently remove., the serious
danger now threatening the front of
the city. There ihould be no time
loat either.
Constipation
Ii a universal and most troublesome disorder. It causes Headache, Mental Depression, impairs the Sight and Hearing,,
destroys the Appetite, and, when long
continued, causes Enlargement of the
Liver, Inflammation of the Bowels, snd
Piles. Constipation is speedily cured
by Ayer's Pills.
For a number of months I was
troubled with CosMveiiuss, in conse-
querice of which I suffered from Loss of
Appetite, Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled me. I was
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, was unable to bear exposure to the light.   I was entirely
CURED BY USING
three boxes of Ayor's Pills. I hare no
hesitation in pronouncing this medicino
to be the best cathartic ever made. —
James Eccles, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, con*i
acquently, from Headache, Indigestion,
and PilcB, for years. Avor's Pills, which
I took at tho suggestion of a friend, have
given me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, the re.
moval of which has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and areatly improved my general health.—W. Keeler,
Amherst, Mass.
I suffered from Constipation, which
assumed such an obstinate form that I
reared a stoppage of the bowels. Two
boxes of Ayer's Pills cured me. completely.—D, Burke, Saco, Me.        It

and, in somo cases, Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of the blood. This disease can bs
ourod by the use of Ayer's SarsapariUa.

and perfect harmony." He concludes
by wiving. "All who witnessed lust
evening's performance must have been
faitftly gratified, and must earnestly
delire that the visit of the choral union

The steamer Yosemito arrived from
Victoria last evening with 20 passengers and 30 tons of freight. Sho
cleared on the return trip this morning with a large numbor of passengers
and 45 tons of freight. The Yosemite
left Victoria yesterday morning at 5:45
o'clock iu hopes of making the river
bofore the log got very thick. On arriving off the mouth of the river the
weather was so dirty that in the absence of the buoys it wns impossible to
muke the entrance, nnd the steamer
was obliged to lay outsido until the fog
rose. At ihe c-**d of fivo hours the
weather cleared sufficiently to allow
the steamor to resume her trip, and
she arrived in this city about 7 o'clock.
When tho Yosemite passed the s. s.
Mexico yesterday morning the latter
was still high on the rocks bolow
Plumper's Pass and no apparent signs
of being relieved from her perilous
position. The Yosemite was to stop
this morning on her trip down and
render any assistance possible in getting the grounded vessel afloat. From
the position tho Mexico lies in it is possible the tusk of getting her off will be
ve?y difficult.
L.v. x.'..— Just before going to press
we received a special telegram to the
effect that the Mexico had arrived in
Victoria nt 4 o'clock. Part of the
Ctti'go from her lorehold was discharged
into a lighter, which eased the vessel
onsiderubly and at high tide she was
success1.ully hauled • fl' the rocks. The

The delayed mails ai'd passengers
r.rrivcd this morning at 9 o'clock by
upeeial train from Rovelstoke, where
the detention took place. Fivo trains
were made into ono, which comprised
2 sleepers, 2 first-class coachd, o colonist sleepers, 2 baggage end 1 box
c. r. There wore something over 300
j:; senders on board, and tho ojrs were
uncomfortably crowded. Tho local
train which left this city at 6 o'clock
met tho expreiis at the junction, and
after transferring passengers, brought
in the pt**>sengersaud mails billed for
this city. The slide wo announced
hist week waa the cause of the detention. One of tho passengers, iu describing it, said it was a formidable
affair, being over 400 feet in length,
and in some places 40 feet deep. He
thought tho company deserved much
credit for clearing it awny iu such a
short time. The line is now reported

found the cabin hatch closed tight, and
opening it, went down to call tlio men,
but getting no answer, he shook them,
only to find that they hnd entered a
Bleep from which he could nut arouso
them. Boyle then informed Constable
Stephenson, «ho nlso went to the
sloop and found the two men dead in
their bunks at the forward end of the
sloop, He oxamined them and found
thorn dead. Tho telephone wires being
down, he at onco came to town to get

The contested Election.
Ue/pro lion. Justice McOroIght.
iu thia caso the petitioner claimed
that the election should be declared
void on the following grounds: That
tho returning officer acted also ns re-
Uming officer at the election of chief
on) inoer aud nisistant engineer; thut
ho omitted to plr.uo his initials on
three ballot papers cast for tho petitioner; that no proper compartment
was provided for beeretly marking the
ballots) that tho ballot papers and
counterfoils were not properly sealtd
up and kept by tho reluming officer
i i h's posseHsioni that one of the ballot pa pen cant at thu oleotion wns not
re'urned by him. and was wisslngj
that tho voters' list used was not a
copy of that finally revise:', and was
improperly made up, because the as-
sesame»t roll was not duly returned;
that votes of persons voting in respect
of trades' licences, but not qualified by
residence within the ward, or not being
British subjects, woro improperly ro-
c-'ived. uud that none ol the person!
re urned ns elected were qualified tobe
elected, and none received a majority
of votes, The petitioner objected to
tbe following votes; Shadwell, not
resident of ward; Diobel,Tietjen, Vianen and Beuter, not British subjects;
Crake, license not paid for three months
before election; Rankin, name ndded
to liBt on dny of election. No evidence
was offered as to the alleged mis;.ing
ballot, nor that any of the respondents
were disqualified, nnd it appeared that
tho objection to Vianen's voto was
made by mistake,, he having become
naturalized many years ngo.
Hia lordship held the objections going to nil tho validity of tho oleotion
wero not well taken or not sustained
upon the evidence, and in any case as
none of them were shown or even suggested to have affected the roault of
the election it could not be voided because of them.
The caso thon turned upon tho
scrutiny of tho votes. Those objected
to by counsel for Elliott wero W. A.
Purdy, not bolder of license and not
resident of the municipality for n yenr;
A. G. Matthews and Peebles, nut
holders of a license; Hockley, not
holder of license nud not currying on
business; E. Rand, license not paid
for three montha before election; Oglo
and Campbell; not holders of license
and lirm's license not sufficient to qualify: Thomas Cunningham, not voted,
though ballot was cast for him. This
latter mist.iko has already been explained in our columns.
His lordship held upon tho authority
of numerous decided eases that
tho ques" ion ss to residence
must bo determined with reference to the object of (ho act. To
give effect to its intention sometimes
tho word means whero a person
sleeps, but tho authorities showed
clearly that often tho word was used
with regard to hia place of business.
In this c;ise tho license was granted
for the carrying on of business
withiu the ward where it had boen
oiereUed fur nearly two years,
and whero his interest as a voter
in that reapect must bo supposed telle. The reasonable construction, his lordship thought, was therefore to hold the residence sufficient,
pointing out that upon a different construction all persons living out of the
city limits but carrying on business
within it, might be disfranchised no
matter what the exte.it uf their business or interests in tho city might bo.
As the act provides that tho license
must be pnid for tho period of three
months nost preceding the day of election, ins lordship held that persons
who hud paid within that period were
imt qualified, his lordship sustaining
Mr. McColl's objection on this point
as mentioned by us in our issue of yesterday. It was also held I hat the voter
must bo a license holder nt tho time of
tho election, which commences upon
the day of nomination, and thnt licenses expiring at the ond of last year
did not qualify. The counsel for
pefiiioner, iu defending votes for him,
raised tlio quoation whether householders paying a rentul of $40 were
not entitled to vote under the net of
1885. This view was opposed by
counsel for respondents, aa also afterwards by couubbI fur petitioner. After sumo discuRsion evidence wasttken
oa b .i!i sides upon tlio point,nnd nfter-
wards his lordship held that such
household era wero, by the act reforred
to, qualified to voto ami could not be
disqualified by llie omission of the
counoil io assess tliem or place them
on the li t.
In deciding the qunaiions raised by
! the petitioner,'and ftiiBwen, hia lord-
, ship pointed out that all parties had
: proceeded upon tho assumption that
1 the voters list was not conclu-ive,
; evidence having been given aunitiBttho
quulilloutinn of many of tlio voters for
I r. *..-**it every ground that could bosu*/-
I gcatedj and it had not even been BUg-
! girted that tho list was liiul. Tlio
, question wa* not therefore neoosiary
to be decided l-y his lord nil ![k hut his
present improii-ioii from what li. d boon
Btnted about tlie Hat was that it hhould
not be held conclusive in tho Bbsohee
of any proper appeal in ease of dis-
nuteB,regarding i*nmc?, upon it, and
full information to the voters respecting its pruviruris not contained in any
of the acts so far ns appeared. The
only votes disallowed were those of
of Matthews, Hockley, Rand, Pride
and Ogle, for Pearson, For Elliott
none wero disallowed.
Immediately bofnre tho close of the
argument yesterday, counsel for petitioner, aftor tho decisions given upon
the votes que tinned, desired to reopen
tho case for the purposo  of giving
■ other evidence.   Thia was strongly op-
posod by couubuI on tho other side,
who'stated that two amendments had
already beon allowed, nnd submitted
Unit the timo to/amend had gone by
especially whon the attention of the
I cfuneel hud boen   directed   to  the
points, ns to which ho now desired to
! amend, by the answers c1? the respond-
1 en's nnd their evidence nt the tri.il.
{ Ills Lordship said that such an application at thut Btago euuld not bo allowed,
1 end   reminded counsel that   he had
pointed out tu them distinctly the necessity for full particulars being givon
before tho trial, showing that this was
not only required by tho rules, but
noeoss-'ry to inform the parties what
evidence  they must bo prepared to
givo.   lt would bo impossible after the
length  of .time   which   had already
elapsed to go over the ease again.'
With reference to  tho  coats being
given pgaiust tho petitioner, though
uot olmrged with any impropriety, we
are informed that it is upon the principle that thoy aro not inflicted aB a
ponalty, but having to bo paid by
somo one must necessarily be given
against the losing party, hence tho
rule that as costs ordinarily follow the
event, tho municipality act has provided that all persons returned by tho
returning officer as elected shall, if unseated, pay the costs of tho contest.
The case was conducted by Mr. At-
kiiiDon "or petitioner, Mr. Dole, O, C.
for Mr. Herring and Mr. MoColl for
Peenoiulents,
The contest wai fought point by
point throughout, and was ono of the
moat ably conducted and moat arduous
casoa every brought before the court
in this city.
