A man dropped in st an auction
of unclaimed freight in Boston and
purchased a box, of the contents of
which lie was ignorant. When he
opened tho box he found that he was
the owner of about 2,000 munueoript
sermons, formerly Die property of t
Methodist clergyman. The olergy-
man had written along tho margin
of his pages such eurious suggestions
to himself as the following:- -Deliver
this passage in solemn tones; "Scornful smile after the word "never;"
"Pause long enough to count twenty-
five after this passsage;" "Close Bible
with violent slam after the passage;"
"Contemplate ceiling iii attitude of
adoration at this point;" "Sarcastio
wave of the hnnd;" ".Rapid gesture."
Manuscript sermons do not possess
'a charm for the purchaser, and he
does not exactly know what to do
with his property.  .
A Miser's Curious out.
The man is still living who, seven,
teen years ago walked into the
rooms of the Biblo society in Boston
and electrified the persons whom be
found there, first by bis appearance,
and, secondly, by the communication he bad to make. His appearance betokened more than poverty,
for his shabby clothes wero tied together with strings. What in the
world had brought such a man there
was the question everyone asked
himself, and the wonder can bo better imagined than described when
the stranger remarked that be bad
property to the amount of $76,000,
which ho would like to turn over to
the society if he oould be guaranteed
10 percent, annually upon it forthe
remainder of his life, his ago then
being 79. The officers _jj»j>tawed
their amazement as well as they
could, took his name, verified his
schedule of his possessions, and submitted the case to tbe directors. They
looked the matter over in the light
of actuaries, tables, etc., and finally,
after much deliberation, decided
that the risk was too great, and so
notified the would-be donor. Not
long after he came back and renewed
bis proposition to turn his money
over to tbe society.and said he'would
be content with 7 per cent, annually.
That proposition was accepted, and
fer some years he appeared.ttjgularly
at the expiration of the year and
drew his interest, taking $200 in
cash, and the company's note for the
balance. After doing this for seven
years or so he turned those notes
back to the company, saying that
he had no use for them. He is now,
at the age of 96, blind, deaf, and
crippled by n fall so that he cannot
walk, and the Bible soiety pays the
bills for his support.—Springfield
(ilasi.) Union.
A Clrl's lavr.tloa.
In a remote but decent part of
Boston has lived for about fifteen
years an English family of rather
unique interest. The father served
in the War of the Rebellion, and
being a partial invalid in consequence, receives a small pension,
which does not go far towards supporting the fauiily.and heoandolittlo
besides draw his pension Mid suffer
his constant pain. The mother is a
small woman, with large brown era
and pale cheeks. She has had a
toilsome^life, indeed, nnd has dono
all sorts of work to try and eke out
tho family support. Two daughters,
tlie elder somewhat noted in ber
neighborhood as a beauty, and a
small boy make up the balance of
the household. Although desperately poor, the family have been tu
proud as Lucifer and seemed bound
to accept no more charity tban was
absolutely unavoidable, though thero
aro plenty of well-to-do people
around them who would gladly have
contributed in their aid, as every
member of the family commanded
respect. Tbey have come to be
known even outside their narrow
circle from tbeir constant efforts to
better themselves, trying now this
thing and now that. Everything
failed until a short time ago; but
at last tho family has struck something that will give them ease and
comfort, if not comparative wealth.
The handsome daughter is credited
with the discovery, which is simply
a new method of treating photographs
in reproduction. Her name has been
given to it, and her work is getting
more and more circulation everyday,
with, of couse, an increased inflow
of dollars to the family treasury,
She has secured a patent on her process. All the photographers are
puzzled by the work and would like
to have it for use in their business,
as they see that this girl is getting
as many orders aa ahe can fill at the
good price of $3 for each cabinet reproduction. The pictures aro the
suuie size as the original cabinet
photographs, but softer and more
pleasing in tone, and are mounted
undor thick plate glass with bevelled edges. How she makes her
copies nobody has been able to find
out as yet, but, in the slang of the
day her work "goes."

THE CHINE-IE T11EATY.
London, June 1.—In the houae of
commons to-night Baron Henry de
Worms, the political secretary of tho
board of trado replying to a question
regarding Ihe present friction between
Australia and China, said that China
had no right by treaty to send emigrants to the British colonies nor has
the government ongaged to admit
Chinese. The treaty stipulated simply
thut China was engaged not to prevent
her subjects from emigrating if they
wanted to. Baron de Worms hoped
that the conference would come to a
decision whioh, while it would satisfy
the colonies, would not wound Chinese
susceptibilities.
mud Stanley's views.
London, June 1.—Lord Stanley, of
Preston, the newly appointed governor-general of Cansda, was interviewed to-dsy at Moville, where the steamer Sarmatian, ou whioh ha sailed, stopped for Ihe mails and passengers. He
said he had acquired in his experience
in tho colonial oflice an accurate knowledge of Canada's vast resources. He
said he was greatly impressed with the
Srisibilities of Canada's future. He
id not go, he said, with preconceived
ideas regarding tho government or
policy, nnd did not wish to force any
new policy upon the country, which
Eussesaed responsible government,
ord Stanley expressed his confidence
in Canada's ministry, and believed
they would cordially co-operate with
the governor-general. He waa arriving,
he knew, at a time when troublous
questions wore likely to arise, but he
felt no anxiety on that account,
MUTINY   ABOARD SHIP.
VicToaiA, June 1 The British ship
Silvenlale loaded with lumber from Port
Discovery for Melbourne, arrived from
Cape Flattery this morning in tow of the
tug Pioneer. The Siverdale left for sea
last Saturday having the crew locked in
tbe forecastle, and off Cape Flattery tire
crew mutinied and anchored the ship in
8 fathoms of water 30 yards from the
shore. The men positively refused to
work and the captain succeeded io getting the anchor up and atarted up the
straits. Two miles from the lu*ht
they met the tur; Pioneer which towed
Sih'CTiinlo to Port Angeles whero Capt.
Morton had to sign salvage bonds for a
large amount. The vessel was then towed
to Esquimalt and this afternoon the mutinous crew were manacled and brought
to the gaol. They will appear before
the magistrate to-morrow. Had it not
been for favorable weather the destruction of the ship was inevitable.
HOW SHE did IT.
Chicago, Juno 1 Mrs.  Meokiel
Rawson this morning marked another
bloody period in the celebrated divorce
proceeding betweon herself and her
millionaire husband by making a deliberate and savage attempt to kill Col.
H. Whitney, one of her husband's
counsels, as he waa attending the case
in Judge Jamieson'a court room, while
the court and attorneys at 10:10 a.m.
were waiting for Mrs. Rawson, who
was tardy. Tho lady hastily stepped
into the room and drawing a 38-ca.ibre
revolver she levelled it at the head of
Mr. Whitney, who was reading a paper, and find. The bullet entered his
left log inflicting what may prove a
fatal wound. Judgo Jamieson, Clerk
Reich and others in the court room
leaping up in alarm as the infuriated
woman proceeded to fire again, they
sought places of safety under desks
and in remote corners of tho room.
Mr. Whitney ran to gain the shelter of
the clerk's desk and had nearly readied it when Mrs. Rawson ran forward
nnd fired 4 times, one of tho shots hitting tlie lawyer. The bailiff, Sunderland, succeeded in wrenching tho revolver from her hands. Dr. Andrews
was immediately called to attend to the
wounded man. The dootor found him
suffering from a dangerous bullet
wound in tho groin and another a little
above the knee. Mrs. Rawson was
taken to tho county jail.

As The Coicmbian iu the past
bis, from tiins to time, urged r the
neoessity; pf putting; all public!
thoroflghftriu in a good stnto of repair early every season, und has ol-
ton pointed out the fact, that to do-
lay such ncceBsnry work until late in
the season, when the rains ure fulling, was a waste of time, money und
libor, so we would How remind the
govornment thst the present is the
time to spend whatever money wns
appropriated for that purpose; but
we would also remind tho govern
ment that tbo timo had fully como
when a great deal of the paternal
care exercised by them should bo
shifted on to the shoulders of tbe
people of the various districts where
Such work was needed: it would be
much bottor for* tho government nnd
the people. Undor a free system of
government such as obtains undor
British rule, especially in the Do
minion, the more equally the duties
nnd responsibilities are distributed
amongst the people the more likely
nre wo to have a government of the
people, for the ppople, nnd by the
people—which is the only true system of government.
We do not mean to say that tho
province of British Columbia, or any
other provinco in tho Dominion,
should dispense with an executive
government—that would lead to
anarchy; but we do mean that we
should have such a system of municipal and county or district government as that Uie people would manage their own affairs. The absence
of this so far has been a great loss to
B. 0., keeping the people in a state
of chronic babyhood: instead of
helping themselves they are helpless. They have littlo or no liberty
of notion, always waiting for something to turn up, and aro entirely
dependent for any necessary local
improvement on the exalted will of
tho executive, away at the seat of
government. And when it does
please the executive to spend a little
of the people's money in any locality
it is then, vory often, in the power
of some govornment servant to spend
it to suit the selfish views of some
personal friend. Such things havo
happened in British Columbia, and
aro liable to happen again. We do
not mean to say that the government
of the presont, or any other administration of government in B. 0.
since responsible government, is to
blame for tho state of things we
have briefly outlined. The peoplo,
who are the real source of theso
administrations, should have seen to
it that this helpless state of pupilar-
ity should not have been continued
so long. All men love power, and
very few make an impartial use of
it. Self is generally uppermost, but
there is no excuse for a free people
liko those in B. 0. being in the
power of their equals. "Eternal
vigilance is the price of freedom,"
and we must not bo behind this ago
of active, intelligent liberty. "Fear
God and honor the king," but let us
see tbat thn human king, for tho
time being, whom we have the
privilege of crowning, observes the
same, divine law and metes out oven
justice and fair play to nil undor
authority.
To make a practical uso ol these
important fundamental principles of
government, it.is incumbent on every
citizen of this free country to exercise bis elective franchise intelligently and honestly for the publio good,
If we wish to have a good govern.
ment, We must needs be honest ourselves; as the old Scotch proverb
says, "Sic maister sic man." So, in
like manner if we elect men to ^re-
present us in the councils of tho
nation or province, as tbo caso may
be, whom we know to be selfishly
inclinod, it is a sure evidence that
wo aro either so ourselves, or that
wo are negligent of a most important duty to ourselves and the community in which we live. It is a
vory true truism that no ono can
get higher than their ideal. Wo
must aim high if we expect to attain
any eminence. It must be acknowledged that the great majority of the
people of British Columbia ure intelligent; but do thoy make, or have
they made, the best use of their intelligence "in the selection, of thoir
representatives to our provincial legislature! For instance—Woll, the
best proof of a tree is its fruit.
What have been the fruits of tho
last session of our provincial parliament! For the credit of our good
name wo should not care to exhibit

debit side might outweigh the crodit

"Whalt Kob a Poor Han or His Beer!"
BY JOHN UAKLEOORN,  JR.
What 1 rob a poor man of his beer,
And give bim good victuals Instead—
Tonr heart's very bard, sir, I fear,
Do you think we can live upon bread ?
What! rob a poor man of his mug,
And give him a house of his own;
With kitchen and parlor so snttg T—
Tie enough to draw tears from a stone.
What! rob a poor man of bis glass,
And teach him to read ahd to write 1
What! save him from being an ass I—
'Tib nothing bnt teetotal spite.
What I rob a poor man of his ale,
And . prevent him from beating, his
wife,
From being looked up fn a jail,
With penal employment for life!
What 1 rob a poor man of his stout,
And save np his cash in tho banks!
In the end he would turn quito about,
And reward yon, kind sirs, with liis
thanks.
Facts About Alcohol.
Alcohol Is a subtle, bewitching enemy
of human happiness; an insidious poison,
that lias produced more misery* disease,
and death than any other—perhaps 1
might say than all other poisons put together. It is not properly considered
one of the creatures of the benifioent
Creator's hand. When "in the beginning" Ho created the heavens and the
earth, He did not create alcohol: nor
was it evolved from molecules or "star-
dnst" during the six days or epochs of
the Adamlc formation.
Alcohol exists as a constituent element
In no vegetable1 or animal organization.
It oozea forth from no bud or blossom,
frnit or plant, or natural spring or fountain. It Is an enemy, an intruder—like
sin, miasma, and death—being tho product of rot and decay.
The following facts aro affirmed by intelligent physiologists of alcohol, viz.:
That it is an irritant, that it will blister
the skin and inflame the stomach; that It
Is a narcotic, and as such paralyzes the
nerves and benumbs the sensibilities;
that it destroyes or vitiates the blood.
It-cause*! heart-disease by changing the
heart-tissues Into fat.
Alcohol produces apoplexy; it does
this by weakening tbo blood-vcsselB
and causing congestion of the brain,
It weakens the muscles. Various experiments prove that a man can lift
more, endure much moro fatigue, and
accomplish much mora work without
than with aloobol. It wastes the vital
forces and causes consumption. It
•dissipates the vital hoat, and travelers
in the, Arctic regions aro obliged to be
teetotalers. Alcohol causes a paralysis
of the brain. A man dead drunk is a
person whose brain is temporarily paralyzed. It will destroy every organ of
the body. It hardens the liver and
renders it useless, lt produces the
whole troop of nervous diseases. It
genomtes ulcers, cancers, dyspepsia,
tumors, and all kinds of derangements
in the human organism.
Alcohol is found to produce more
than two-thirds of the diseases found
in the hospitals in our large cities. It
generates paupers and tramps spontaneously. It if one of the moat active erf all causes of crime and insanity. It shortens life fifty per cent according to the statistics of lifo insur-
B ance oompaniea. It serrei no useful
, purpose in the human system, and is
everywhere an enemy of life and happiness, coating the people more than
their bread.
Alcohol is the devil's masterpiece in
delusion and mischief; and, ao far as
ita application to the human stomach
is concerned, "it is evil, and only evil,
■ aod that continually," whether we oall
it a dram, or a tonic, or a catholicon.
Moderate drinking aud dosing are both
alike tricks of the Old Serpent to lead
men and woman to the drunkard's
grave.

"You want'book agent-9," said tho
visitor.    .
"We want salesmen," responded a big,
well dressed 'man, who sat ou a pile of
books in thecorner.smokinga cigar. The
big, well-dressed man, was Johu T. Collier, a brother of P, P. Collier, tho book
publisher.
"Gentlemanly salesmen," said Mr. VA*

"As hook salesmen. You're afraid of
tbo job, of courser The way book agent*

frightened good men out of tho business."
"Huvo you worked ai a book agent here
In the cltyf"
"Well, I should any I had. Why, J
went Into Clnliin's a few weeks ago, and
how many sua of Dickens did I sell, do
you think? I sold fifty-two sets, at 110 a

cleared $130 out of thut one house. On
some works only 20 per cefjt. U paid—en-
cyclopedias, for example. Hut tlie beauty
of it is that your commission la paid

How did alt tho wealthy book publishers
get their start? Why, as book ageuta.
AppU'ton began that way. So did Os-
gooil. Bo did my brother, P. F. Collier.
Jay Gould was a book agent, mid a most

"A successful book agent moat U a

I'm alrnld ho lacked one of the chief qual-

Ami itnlpli Waldo Kmerson was a book

Many attempts have been made at Improvement in shoeing horses ln order to
prevent slipping on smooth surfaces, nil of
which have been attended with mora or
less success,
Tho latest of these Is the Invention of
Mr. Achilla Delay, of Brussels, which
consists of two pieces of steam vulcanised
india-rubber securely fixed ln slots
deeply cut in the heel of an iron shoe, tbe
effect being that, owing to the slight projection of the India rubber, a firm foothold

Disloyal   Dilapidation.
It iB a sad commentary on the boasted loyalty of the "royal city" that that
ex-royal throne on tho crescent known
as "the pavillion" should have been
allowed to fall into such a state of
reckless abandon. It ought at least to
be kalsomined and surmounted by a
handsome flag-polo, or else taken
down to the R.C.K Mills and made
into chips for relic hunters. Perhaps
some of "the boys" whon they mix
their next bucket of "red" will give
"the pavillion" a daub. There aro also
a lot of elegant stumps on the orescent
which, if thoy ure to be preserved from
the ravages of the omnivorous cow,
should be surrounded by light iron
railings. If every stump wus whitewashed and adorned with a short must
and the Union Jack, this pleasuro
ground would present an attractive appearance.
Items from Ladners.
W, H. Ladner, M.P.P., informs us
that crops in the vicinity of Ladners
are looking woll and tho prospects for
a bountiful harvest ore excellent. The
want of rain was beginning to be felt
but tho showers of yosterday have
averted any immediate danger of the
crops suffering from that cause. The
hay crop, particularly, is looking veiy
well and promises a heavy yield. Root
crops have mado a good start and fruits
nre in a very promising condition. Tho
canneries have been busy lately getting into readiness for the July run
und all are prepared to pock more extensively than in former years. A
few of the canneries at the mouth of
the river have commenced packing,
but the run of fish has not beeu such
as to permit of many cases- being put
up. Building operations are quite active throughout Delta.
A Truthful ttlwasli.
Moody, the Siwash arrested for be
ing drunk and incapable a few days
ago, has been sent to gaol for a term
of two weeks. Moody cluimed that a
Rod Rivor half-breed named Felix
Copp, it deckhand on tho str. Gladys,
had supplied the liquor with which he
managed to got drunk. Yesterday afternoon Copp was arrested by Constable Pearce and taken before the police magistrate The evidence went to
prove, what has long been known, that
Moody isa most inveterate liar, and
that he had tried to free himself by
getting Copp into trouble. It appears
Moody procured the whisky and went
aboard the Gladys and endeavored to
get Copp to drink with him, but the
latter could not be persuaded to tako
more thanjone swig at the bottle, which
annoyed Moody so much that hu drank
the remainder himself.   Copp was dis-
Slopped liy a Boatl Agent,
This morning Chibby Eickhoff, who
goes to Vancouver every morning for
Mr. Raymond, to bring over tho Victoria mail, when about four miles out
the Vanoouver road was stopped by on
an armed man uud ordered to return
to town or ho would demolish him on
the spot. Chibby itbeyud the command with apparent cheerfulness, and
made tho trip back to town in much
quicker time than he ever accomplished it before. On returning he reported the occurrence tu Mr. Raymond
who loft shortly afterwards on his regular trip to Vancouver, anxious to
meet the road agent on the same tonus
as Chibby. The joker, for the affair
must have been p-rp'-trated either by
a pnicticxl joker or a lunatic, may find
to his cust that stopping anyone ou her
majesty's service is a thing the law
cau Bee no amusement in, and that a
term in the penitentiary is. the only
atonement accepted for the offence.
A Subterranean i'laiu Hed.
Mr. W, H. Lewis, of this city, has
been digging a well lately on his premises on the Westminster-Vancouver
road, a few hundred yards beyond Ihe
gas works. Wheu the shaft had boen
sunk nearly twelve feet, and through
the hard-pan, n strata of shifting
quicksand was struck, which yielded
whole bucketsful of more or less decayed shells, somo being nearly perfect
as to form. A few fractured specimens wore show to Capt, Peele. who
eententinusly exclaimed; ''Clams,"
and proceeded to explain how that the
present site of tho royal city probably
constituted tho prehistoric sand-
head** of the Fraser. Tho captain's explanation seems probable, and
and it seom-i to us, offers a cheap and
satMfaotbry solution to the Dominion
•authorities in tho troublesome matter
of .the* presont Frnaer river dund'
heads. ' lnstewl r»f fixing the
MiuUicuds, properly buoying thu chiui-
ml, noil furnishing an olliciul chart
thuiefor, let them just tvnifc for a few
cycles, and we sin* 11 be digging wiilln
into tho present sandheads, and thu
large sea-goiny vessels of this ago will

Wliat (iocs ou Belilntl the Sceucs-Mople,
Birch and Olncr Native W«oOs Bean-
lirnlly Wrlnmorphoicil—Iniporl-
Ins and Finishing.
The averugo citizen who passes daily,
it may bo many times a day, the ox-
tensive allow front of the Mossrs.
Wintemute Bros'i furniture and pic-
turn emporium on Columbia street,
little imagines what a busy hive of industry exists in thoir lurge extension
behind the store,- both upstairs and
down. It is true the distant and muffled panting of that tireless toiler,
Bteam, may bo heard from Columbia
Btreet, but the boiler and engine, being at tho oxtrcmo back end of their
lung buildings, hardly betray their
presence to tho passer-by. Tho base-
mont is used as a store-room for tho
various sorts of lumber in tho rough,
which subsequently finds its way into
the show room on Columbia street
wrought into infinite shapes of utility
and beauty.
WHERE THE   WOltK IS DONE.
On the first floor behind the shop is
situated all the machinery, consisting
of boiler and engine, 8-horse power, a
planing machine, a band saw, a turning lathe, rip and cut-off saws, a power
mortiser boring machine, and jig saw.
Wintemute Bros, expect in a few
months to put in new boiler aud engine, 25-horae power and other new
machinery, when they will go into tbe
manufacture of all sorts of furnituro,
including bed-room suites, Ac, more
extensively than at present. They now
have some beautiful specimens of these
of their own manufacture, which demonstrate satisfactorily what a fine finish
our own native wood?—pine, maple,
birch, and a species of cotton wood-
are capable of. Imported woods, such
us oik and ash, ore also worked up,
and furniture in various stages.of completion imported and finished.
■Upholstering in all its branches is
carried on, aud finished articles, including lounges, easy chairs, mattresses, fuulding bed-lounges, &c, of all
varieties and prices can be turned out.
Some of the cabinet work, in British
Columbia pine, maple, birch, and
cherry, is admirably finished in beautiful tints, and displays" some .unique
carving done by a skilled hand-carver
in the establishment.
Upstairs are the store rooms for
finished and unfinished furniture, and
here also the tinting and varnishing is
done. On the main floor, in addition
tocsbinet and furniture making, salmon
floats and oars are made by the thousands und hundreds respectively. This
establishment furnishes nearly all the
floats and oars used by the numerous
canneries up and down tthe river. In
the shape of oars everything from tho
mammoth scow impeller to tho delicate spoon-oar for the aquatic sport is
turned out. * They are made of pine,
which works beautifully and proves
durable and tough.
In the Wintemute Bros', establish-
from ten to twelvo hands are constantly employed, and we have already remarked that it is their intention to extend their operations and keep pace
with the goneral advancement
MU.   P_   PEEUI.ES
at the lower or weat Olid of Columbia street, has a furniture shop where
are constantly exposed for sale the latest and newest things in furniture, carpets, mirrors, patent wringers, steam
washers, etc. He manufactures bedroom suites, tables, lounges, chairs and
and mattresses, doing his own upholstering, besides importing all of the
above mentioned articles. An item
worthy of special attention is the patent combination chair nnd lounge
which Mr. Peebles manufactures. This
is quite au ingenious and very convenient article, and was, wo are told, invented and patened some time ago by
Mr. David Vara, of this city. Mr.
Peebles has tbe sole right to manufacture these in the province.
MR. JNO. E.   LORD
has a general furniture storo and undertaking business, his -establishment
being nearly opposite Mr. Peonies'
shop, on Columbia street. In addition
to manufacturing, upholstering und
importing tho usual lines, Mr. Lord
keeps organs on hand for sale, and has
a particularly fino one at present. He
also carries a line of crockery.
UNDBRTAKIN1 AND FURNITURE.
Mr. Fales makes a speciality of undertaking, uud has a very complete establishment ou Columbia street, and a
branch at Vancouver, with splendid
hearses nnd all the sable trappings of
woe. In addition to the undertaking
business, Mr. Fales imports bedsteads,
tat>les, chairs, bureaus, Bofas, lounges,
mirrors,-carpets, pictures and everything in the furniture lino, and manufactures a grent many of tho ubove
in 'tides, out nt native wood principally,
besides making the various sorts of
mattresses, and upholstering.
The foregoing establishments all do
n large, reproductive, aud increimng
business, aod have reasonable expect a-
tiotm of a still wider market with the
constantly developing city aud uur-
rounding districts.

A Pl«n for Ihe .Vdifcttlto.
How'aro Wo to get rid of mosqultos ?
is tho all-absorbing questions in home
circles at present Various means have
been devised, many of which are in-
geniouSt but none successful. The
smudge fire of damp chips or vile tobacco- leaves hus been tried with par*'
tiul success, though close observation
has discovered that the process is more
fatal to the human race than to the mosquito. Pork grease generously spread
over the hands, neck and face is sure
to keep the mosquito at a respectful,
distance, and your friends also. In tho
matter of keeping a creditor off this
remedy has proved useless, which we
know from personal experience. We
have been harassed all our lives by
both mosquitos and creditors and we
must acknowledge the former hus fared
better and gets more from us than
the latter. Both ure posts in their way,
but of the two evils we prefer the
mosquito. Few people look upon the
mosquito as the friend of man, but
suoh it is,aa proved by science. In warm
weather, such as we hove been experiencing lately, our veins, surcharged
with blood, refuse to perform their
dutios with the same regularity and
application as is their custom in colder
weather, and the result iB that we
suffer more from an overplus of blood
than from the heat itself. At this
time nature, as she always does, comes
to the rescue, and sends along the
mosquito to draw off the surplus blood
and save doctors' bills, the only difference boing that the learned physician
charges $5 a visit while the accommodating mosquito does the work free,
only asking" the privilege of carrying
away the blond extracted. And yet
how few people givo that little drop of
blood in a Christian spirit! Ingratitude
is one of our greatest failings, tho more
that is done for us the more we expect,
and the greater the service rendered
the more we abuse and malign the
good Samaritan. The mosquito was
not made without a purpose, it has a
mission in life to perform, aud the best
thing we can do is patiently und cheerfully to submit, to the surgical operation without attempted evasion or useless profanity.
