An Extraordinary Resolution.
In the Daily Colombian of the
29th ult. the following article appeared relating to the new descriptive through time-table of the
0. P. R.: \
The new through time-table of the
C. F> R.t issued in pamphlet form, gives
a itood deal of information respecting
places along the line, and even favors
Victoria, whioh is 75 miles beyond the
terminus, with a good item. But tho
city of Westminster, which Is the river
terminus of the road, and which gave
tho company in cash aud lands over
$100,C0G, is only mentioned onoe, and
that by the merest accident. It would
have been very easy, and only an act of
fairness, if these pamphleteers who pro-'
fess to descibe the C. P. B. and Its connections would do so with some show of
impartiality. To pass over without notice a city of so much importance as
Westminster looks very mucli like a deliberate purpose to ignore our existence.
The large volume of traffic done by the
railway company at this city, as shown
by figures published from time to time
in the Columbms, is proof of its Importance from a trade point of view, and we
hope the slights it hu received will not
be repeated. These observations are not
made in a spirit of hostility, but for the
purpose of suggesting to the company
that it ought to examine carefully all
literature of this kind circulated under
its sanction, and guard against the unfair discrimination of which we com*
plain.
On the same day the Viotoria
Golonkt contained a notice of the
tame time-table. After congratulating itself that Victoria appeared
in the time-table as a "station," the
Colonist thus refers to Westminster:
We now come to an act of grave and
intentional injustice that is done by the
guide-book to the pretty and thriving
oity of New Westminster—the Boyal
City—a oity with a delightful past and a
prosperous future. Situated in the centre of the garden of the province, it is
the point of supply for the chief fisheries, lumber camps, and mines, and the
best farms iu the country. Its commerce is large and daily increasing. Its
merchants are enterprising and wealthy.
Its manufactures are growing with the
needs of the population. Its fresh fruits
and fish grace every civilised table in the
inhospitable Northwest Its lumber and
articles manufactured therefrom "have
usurped the Canadian markets as far
east as Winnipeg. It is the C. P. R.'s
best customer in eastern-bound freight.
It h&sa population nf 4.000 Tt.h no life-rails'
hewed for itself an existence out of the
primitive forest without government aid;
and so far from being assisted or subsidised by the railway company, it has
built its own wharves and streets and
buildings, and its own railway! One
hundred and thirty-five thousand dollars
wero contributed by the citizens towards
the construction of tbe branch Hue to
New Westminster. That short line is
to-day the only profitable piece of railway property the C. P. B. owns in British Columbia. And here is all the C.P.B.
guide-book bas to say of the Royal City:
"New Westminster Junction.—Divergence of branch to New Westminster, an
old and important seaport, in the populous and fertile Fraser delta; distance;
eight miles," Three lines in the guidebook—"Only this and nothing more."
A town of 4,000 inhabitants, hopelessly
side • tracked, shunted, switched off,
What are the public men of the city, the
members for the district—provincial and
Dominion—the mayor, tho town council,
the newspapers, about that they do not
bestir themselves to have this wrong
righted! A little while ago, and behold!
Victoria was not to bo found on
the map of the world. Contemplate its position now on the map and in
the guide-book. Let the Boyal Civilians
bestir themselves and see to it that in
the next guide-book their claims to distinction and honorable mention are not
bounded by the narrow limits of three
lines und that the light of their merits
and advantages are not hidden beneath
the bushel of their new neighbor and
only possible rival.
At the regular meeting of the
oity council held lost Monday night
tho following resolution was adopted:
Moved by Coun. Jacques, seconded bv
Coun. Duncan, that the thanks of the
council be tendered to the Viotoria Daily
Colonist for the able manner in which it
brought to the notice of the public of
this province the systematic ignoring of
this city in the official hand-hooks and
time-tables of the C. P. B.; and, also,
pspfc ptot.s#rtirftfe JTsS'ai
go to another town to find a champion
for our righto.
This is certainly one of the most
extraordinary pieces of childish foolishness we ever remember to have
encountered. There is probably not
one member of the council who will
not admit that the Colonist has
shown greater hostility to Westminster und the mainland than any
other newspaper in the province. It
has persistently advocated centralization ut the capital, and opposed
any scheme looking to the advancement of enterprises which did not
promise direct benefit to its own
community. If the members of the
council who appear so anxious to
offer tuify to tho Colonist at tho expense of their own oity, and the expense of their own reputation for
common sense, had road carefully
tho article (hoy were praising they
might have discovered, what others
hud no trouble in discovering, that
its real object wits not to "champion
the rights" of this city. No one
would expect disinterested championship of mainland interests from
suoh a source. The Coloniufo object
was to show by contrast how much

CHAMBEKLAIN l.ND TUB OEaNOEMEM.
London, Oct. 11.,—Chamberlain's
reception nt tlie hands of. tho Belfast
Orangemen was an enormous affair.
Mr. Jesse Ceilings und Sir William
Thompson who were with Mr. Chamberlain, shared the honors bestowed
upon the Badical leader, but it was
Mr. Chamberlain's prominence that
brought them into notice rather than
importance attaching to themselves.
This reception was pronounced Radical
by the Conservative Orangemen, and
the language used by Mr. Chamberlain in his speech was somewhat anomalous, but it will have the effect of
relegating the Birmingham statesman
into the ranks of Toryism, at least
until the death of Mr. Gladstone,
when he will without doubt again at-
tompt to lead the Radicals.
IBANSVAAL FUSE STATS.

The Skewes Case.
Editor Columbian. — Will you
kindly permit me to make the following statement in contradiction to tin
letter of Hr. Walker which appeared
in your issue of the 10th inst. The
young Englishman, now in prism, hsd
frequently promised to me thst his
father would send him remittance*
from home in order to pay the arrests
of board and lodging due by him to
me, Mr. Walker in s measure corroborating the assertion of the young man
by deolaring that Mr. Skewes, senior,
waa quite able to nay for his so*.
Early in August 1887, the youth Wt
for the upper oouBtry. for ths purpow,
he usserted, of filling the double offlee*
of book-keeper and bar-keeper in the
hotel whioh waa being elected by Mr.
English at Douglas Lake. It appears
from a letter sent by Mias English to
a young lady in this town thst Mr.
William Skewes worked for one day on
the farm'at hay-making, and, finding
the work too bard, he started on his
way baok to Kamloops. After his return to New Westminster he called on
me one evening, aecompanied by *
friend, and gave me his aaeuranoe thst
he had no intention of leaving th*
country. This assurance, however, I
had reason to doubt; therefor*, I put
the matter into the liands of a firm of
gentlemen in this eity, one of the partners of this firm bong the estate
agent who has been ao unjustly assailed
by Mr. Walker. The estate sgent in
no manner whatever advised or coerced
me to take' the notion against Mr.
Skewes: this was don* solely on my
own responsibility. Mr. Walker snd
Mr. Skewes had'learned from my sister the destitute, condition in whieh
we were, and yet neither of them took
a single step to aid us in onr poverty.
Previous to Mr. Skewes' arrest information had been given to me thst he
intended leaving Westminater on Saturday morning last I leave the public to judge who, in' this instsnoe,
acted as a Christian: the kindly estste
agent who tried to prevent me being
imposed on, or the gentleman who wss
assisting the youth to leave British
Columbia without any agreement as
to the payment of th* debt Mr.
Skewes' father is, to use Mr. Walker's
own wonls, a msn in essy circumstances. It is grieving me greatly
that the young man should h* unpris-

Westminster, Ilth Oct, 1887.
The Tne Slor;.
Editor Columbian,—I presume I
am tba estate sgent referred to by Mr.
Wslker in his communication published
in yonr issue of the 10th Inst, entitled
"A pies for the friendless." It.sssms
strange thst ths church belle had not
ths ssms sffect on Mr. Walksr thst hs
considers others in ths city should
feel. Certainly there is »sry little
doubt but that hs wss good enough to
visit his friend on Sunday st ths pris-
on, but did he not go empty handed f
Now, if Mr. Walker hu thst feeling
of charity thst he tries vsry hard to
make the publio think he bu, why .did
he take back from Skewes the money
he hsd loaned him, when he got s hint
thst it wss likely lo go towards his
board bill I The reason wss this: str.
Walker had telegraphed to England
asking whether, if he advanced money
to take Skewes to his home, his father
would repay him.to which Mr. Skewes.
senior, replied that he would. Mr.
Walker was performing a most ehsri-
table set in this. Fancy anyone advancing perhaps a bundled dollars or
so to s friend when ha knows thst
there is not s shadow of a doubt with
regard to the repayment! Why, I
doubt if you could find anyone in town
as charitable as that! "The Lord
loveth a eheerful giver." Mr. Wslker
considers it a very cruel thing to pit
this poor young friend of his in prison
because he owes for his board, but perhaps a few facts of the case wonld not
be out of place. The writer of the
latter of the 10th, I believe, wu instrumental in bringing his friend
Skewes from his homo in Englsnd to
have'sfeady employment on that font-
lemau's Surrey farm. The farming
being, however, abandoned, the young
man came to this eity and eommenood
boarding with the ladies referred to st
s very law rste, which, as it must have
proved a losa to tbe ladies, must' csr-
tainly be looked upon u an aet of
charity on their part. Now, I ask
your intelligent reader whioh is ths
greatest act of oharity, to lend Mr.
Skewes money to return to Englsnd,
which amount wu guaranteed to b* .
returned (possibly with interest), or to '
lend to his friend (with only s chance I
of getting it back) the smount dus for
board, so that these ladies, who are not
in the best of ciroumstanMs, would ll*
relieved to a certain extent I I esr-
tainly think that Mr. Wslker should
maintsin his charitable feelings by
seeing thst this young mannamMS
board bill before he leaves for England,
and see thst these "unprotected"
ladies are not imposed upon by his
friend, u, of course, in tn* *r*nt of
hia leaving they sre deprived of *ven
chance of getting anything st sll, 1
might slate that after receiving a letter
from Miss Dawson requesting ss* te
try and collect this sooount, I saw both '
Mr. Skewes snd Mr. Wslksr snd requested them to settle it in some wsy,
but wu unsble to get sny satisfaction.
Apologising for taking up so muoh el
your valuable space. Tours faithfslly,,

tVedursilar Evenllf, Oct. IV,
IFrom 1st l'uge.)
moro important Victoria is than
Westminster by its situation anil
influence. With this object in view
our cotemporary carefully points
out that whilo Victoria is recognized as a 0. P. B. "station," and
gets nearly a page in tho time-table,
Wostminstor is "side-tracked, shunted, switched off" and is thought
worthy of only threo lines! Hut.
our cotemporary is about to issue a
special illustrated number devoted
to Westminster, and is wise enough
to cover the pill with just sufficient
sugar to make it appear a desirable
morsel in the oyes of some people
who.think themselven exceedingly
clevor! • Tho thing .-was noatly
done, nnd as a pieco of strategy must challengo admiration; but
fancy the amazement of the editor
of the Colonist when ho receives
the resolution of the council conveying the thanks of that august body
for his "championship!" The resolution will doubtless be engrossed
on parchment and embellished with
the eity coat of arms and plioto-
graphs.of the council, and if our
cotemporary does not actually burst
with merriment when he reads it, he
will doubtless have it carefully
framed snd hung up as a memorial
of his own cleverness and a measure
of the intelligence which guides the
destinies of the royal city. The resolution must have been suffered to
pass without properly considering
its scope under the circumstances,
but it is a matter for regret that
the council should have committed
an act whioh will make it the laughing-stock of the country. If the
Colonist's championship had been
disinterested, we still should regard
its utterances as injudicious. We
do not consider the omission of
Westminster from the through
time-table as a very serious offence.
The paniphet did not profess to be a
description of the country, or to
cover the whole 0, P. R. system.
It proposed only to describe the
main route between the east and
the west, and made no mention of
any branch lines at all. We think,
however, the company might hove
departed from the general plan of
the work far enough to give Westminster a muoh fuller notice than it
reoeived, and in referring to it we
used language as strong as in our
judgment the circumstances would
justify. It is to be feared that
some members of the council never
gave the time-table a careful examination, and had a notion that it
purported to present a general und
complete view of the whole system,
inruVjuJ of a soecitic view of the
main line of its traltio only, it nus
never seemed to us good policy "for
Westminster to manifest an attitude
of hostitity towards the road so long
as she is treated with reasonable
fairnesss. The company has fully
complied, we believe, with all conditions upon which the city bonus
was contingent It has given us a
better service than any other place
in the province except Vancouver,
and a better service than we could
have demanded of it. It has continued to send all the Vancouver
Island, freight here for transhipment
—au advantage which we had no
right to claim. It has made our
freight rates the same as those to
Victoria and Vancouver. There are
some things in its system requiring
reform, and wherever the interests
of the eity and district are not receiving fair and equitable consideration the company ought to be
given to understand that such
things will not be permitted to pars
without challenge. The Colonis)
counsels a policy of war, because
the Colonist has assumed an attitude of bitter hostility towards the
railway from a Viotoria standpoint,
and it would be greatly pleased if it
could induoe Westminster to do likewise. But we ask those councillors
who are responsible for the Resolution to read the remarks of the
Columbian and the Colonist and
say candidly which of them would
be most likely to receive favorable
consideration from the railway company! If Mr. Jacques or Mr. Duncan (who moved and seconded the
B!tflW^s%tfty'we/*'lM'1TSO'?...^
self in the place of the company,
we venture to think he would resent the Colonist's unfriendly interference whether he yielded to the
Columbian's suggestion or not.
Where the 0. P. R. deserved rebuke the Columbian has not been
silent, nor has it made use of
smooth words whero the circumstances called vigorous protest; when
the Colonist sought for selfish purposes to frustrate enterprises that
were projected for the advancement
of this oity and the mainland—
when it boomed Port Moody and
Fort Hammond in the hope that
Westminster might be "sidetracked;" when it sought to prevent the
Ohina steamers from coming to any
mainland port; the Columbian stood
up, as it has always stood up, forthe
rights and the interests of this city
and the mainland; and now the
city council passes a resolution
which we can regard as nothing less
than • direct slap in the face, and
in the same breath gives a certificate
of approval to a journal whioh under
Ss thin guise of a newly-found
endship seeks to draw a comparison that will show to our disadvan
tege! We doubt if there is a person in the city who oan produce
from any source a parallel case of
incomprehensible stupidity.

purifier is used to relax constipated bowels and expel tlio bilious poison from tlie
circulation. Rheumatic and birred impurities aro also driven out by it, digestion restored, and tho system benefited
in every way by its use:
A Creaking Hinge
Is dry nnd turns hard, until oil is applied,
after which it moves easily. "Whon the
joints, or hinges, of tho hody are stiffened
and inflamed by Rheumatism, they cannot he moved without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayor's Saroaparilla,
by its action on the blood, relieves this
condition, and restores tho joints to good
working order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable euros, in
cases which baffled tho efforts of the
most experienced physicians. Wore it
necessary, I could give the names of
many iuuividuals who havo been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no' remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's SarsapariUa.—IX. H.
Lawrence, M. D., Baltimore, Md.
Ayer's SarsapariUa cured me of Gout
and Rheumatism, when nothing else
would. It has eradicated every trace of
disease from my system.— R. H. Short,

I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The diseaso
afflicted me grievously, in spite of all tlie
remedies I could find, until I commenced
using Ayer's SarsapariUa. I took several bottles of this preparation, and was
speedily restored to health.—J. Fream,

L11113 Power ln Swimming.
l.iinir rnjracity, ofcours\ is ono of tho
most important requisites in swimming.
The more itir a man can bold inside of
him tho tr .ore buoyant he will be and the
easier he can swim. To develop lung
power I open my mouth, take as big a
gulp of air ii-r 1 can, nnd hold my breath,
timing myirrif hy a watch. When I can
hold the wind in no longer, I blow it out
t.rough my mouth quickly and take
inioihr-r guip, ami so on, doing that Ire*
quently during the day. When I am out
of condition ami training, I can hold my
breath say about a minuto and a quarter,
but wlu n in good condition I can hold it
twice as long. A Ay man oan nearly
double his low; power hy this exercise.
In swimming, always breathe through the
mouth instead uf the nose. It takes too
long to gel ii full breath through the nostrils.
You sre swimming in n heavy sea, lor
cxnnipl", ami, (Oining up from under
ono wr.vo, you s?e another almost upon
you. If vim tryto'dxpel yonr Irroatli
through i e no.so mil tako in a ft- sii
sujiply t'.nl rvny, the wave will catclr you
in the nrirlri)' oi tlie operation nnrl hnlf
Btrnnglo y >.i before you know whnt is tlio
matter. T rough-tho mouth the limys
can bei'iniuied nndrcnlli! i iuleas tluin
■ second, mid tlio swimmer is prepared
to go under or through tho wave. This
iB very iniportai.t in surf swimming,
when'the swimmer gets a cluuirv to
breathe only by coining to tbe surface
every hall dusen strokes. In a short,
choppy sea also, when the waves are running Crosswise nnd slapping you on r.l[
Bides in quick succession, you would soon
be drowned if you tried to breathe quickly, so that the swimmer may not lose his
buoyancy.
Care of tho Bands.
A llttlo ammonia or borax In the water
yon wash your hands with, and that
water just lukewarm, will koeptho akin
clean and soil. A little oatmeal mixed
with the water will whiten the bands.
Many persons me glyceiiue on their
lianas when they go "to bed, wetimij,'
gloves to keep the hcddingcl.au; hut
glycerine makes some skin harsh and red.
ilitrsc people should rub their hands
with dry oatmeal and wear gloves in bed.
Tlie best jir. patation for the hnnds is
whito of egg, with a grain of alum dissolved in it.
"Roman toilet paste" is1 merely llio
white of egg, barley Hour im-1 honey.
They say it was rrs.-d hy tiio Romans in
lire olden time, any way it is a lirst rato
thins hut it Is a mean, sticky staffto uso,
and does not do the work any better than
oatmeal. Thu ro rgbosL and hardest
hands can be made soft and wllite in a
month's timo by doetoring them a little
at bedtime; all the tools you need me n
noli brush, a bottle of ammonia, a box of
powdered borax snd a little line whito
sand to rub the stain oil', or a cut of
l.inon, which will do oven better, for tho
m-iil ol the lemon will clean anything.
Manicures use acids in the shop, but tbo
lemon is quite as good and isn't poisonous, while the acids are.
Vngravlng an Eggs.
Some tlmo sgo there was a man who
stood upon ths street corners and ln tbe
puhlie squares selling egg shells upon
which were engraved names, devices or
flowers. The art of engraving upon eggs
is roiiiieirted with a curious snd little
kh-.iwn historical fact. Iu the month ol
Annual, 180S, st ths time ol the Spanish
war, there wss found In tho patriarchal
church of Lisbon sn egg opon the shell
ol which was announced the approaching
i '.termination of the French. This fact
cruised a lively fermentation in the minds
of the superstitious Portuguese population, snd eamo near causing sn uprising.
The French commsnifcr'romodlsd ths
mutter very Ingonlomlr by distributing
throughout ths dty, thousands ot eggs
Hint bore engraved upon them*contradiction ot ths prediction. The Portuguese, grestly sstonlshed, did not know
what to think of it, but thousands of eggs
giving the lie to a prediction ongraved on
one only, hsd ths power of the majority.
In addition, a few dsys afterward, posters
put up on sll ths sheet- corners pointed
out the manner In which the miracle
was performed. The mode of doing it is
very simple, tt consists in writing upon
the egg shell with wax or varnish or
simply with tallow, snd then immersing
Ihe egg ih some week acid, such, for
example, u vinegar, dilute hydrochloric
acid, or etching liquor. Wherever the
varnish or wax hu not protected the
shell, the lime of the latter U decomposed
nnd dissolved in the add, end the writing or drawing remains ln relief. .    , ,

ol the British srmy,
mr  RECREATION IN OMINA.
Bnt Llttlo Belief from the Monotony ol
Existence.—Decline ln Morals.
We once asked a famous coleopteris
whether he did not regret having devo
ted his life to such a narrow study
"No," he emphatically replied, "if 1
could live my life again 1 would devote
it to one family of beetles." A melancholy example of the domination of one
idea. Of all civilized people the mos
conspicuously in want of relief from the
monotony of their ideas are tho Chinese.
Tbe Hindoos have their frequent poojahs
which, make great inroads into thoir
working time; tho Mohammedans hav«
their festivals; the Burmese are slwayi
gay, and require very little pretext tc
hnve ft "pooay," or entertainment; the
Manilla Indians ami Mestisos lead quite
a merry life; and the Japanese we know
to be the best holiday makers in the
world. But when wo come to the
Chinese wo see a plod, plod from year's
end to year's end; and with the exception of a day or two's ruinous dissipatioi
on tbe occasion of a marriage or I
funeral, and a littlo dumb show cere*
mony at the family grave, the ordinary
life of a Chinese appears to foreign eyes
as dull as that of a galley slave.
Even the rioh are little better off than
the poor, owing to the absence of meant
of recreation and their inability to enjoy
those that do or might exist. An ofheia
dares not attend a theatre for fear o
being denounced and to go for half i
day's picnic would oxpose him to the at
tacks of the censors. The amusement!
of these Chinese officials must, therefore
be kept within the privacy of their owi
walls, and unless they have a strong taste
for literature or curio collecting, they
must often be tempted to fall back or
personal intrigue of various kinds, merelj
to occupy the vacant chambers of tht
mind. Is it this that causes high Chinesi
olhrrials to engage themselves in the pet
tlcst details which in other countric.
would be relegated to quite subordinate
functionaries? The absence of healthy
recreation appears to act on the mine
as the privation of vegetable diet does on
the body; in the one case the defect may
he remedied by lime juice; what is the
cure for the other ?
The aversion to physical exercise,
partly innate and partly imposed by tho
oppressive canons of social etiquette, is
perhaps the most morally destructive ol
all forms of the privation of amusement.
Moral health has great difficulty in maintaining itself without frequent and
copious draughts from the refreshing
springs of nature; and the life that is
mewed up between brick walls, in an atmosphere laden with odious effluvia, is
of necessity thrown bock on its owu inner
darkness, with what consequences lt is
easy to imagine. All forms of open air
amusement are, therefore, to bo considered as boons to the Chinese, and if
on the love ol gambling, already well developed, could be engrafted the lovo of
true sport, it would bo a sign of that
awakening from the sleep of ages which
a celebrated essayist has lately enlarged
upon.—Chinese Timet.
A GHASTLY YARN.
Soma of the Things Seen by Men Who "Oo
Down to the Son in Ships,"
. "I've heard tell," said nn old salt, aa he
braced his hack against a wooden haw
ser-post by the seawall, and pushed hit
chew of tobacco into a cavernous recess
at the side ol his mouth, so that it would
not he lired out if he inadverently bias
phemerl as he talked. "I've heard tell
thnt them temp'rnnce chaps is havin' great
Biicces with the sailor men. Mv boy Bill
is always wantin me to go down with
him to one of their meeting and sign ths
pledge, but I says: 'No. Bill, for I'd innko
a hole in it the next day, and wouldn't
do myself no credit. You give up hard
liquor, if you like, and I'll drink your
share of an evenin', and welcome; but
I'm too old to learn new-fangled ways
myself."
Bill hasn't signed the pledge yet, but
he says he's goln to.
"And yet, Lord knows, I'd have got
along better if I bad never touched
liquor. I never shipped lor a voyage in
my life that I didn't get ono of tlioso
cursed advance notes for a month's pay,
cash it, and go drank on board. Of i ours.-,
nobody can he sure that a sailor is really
going to sea, even after he has signed tho
articles, and so regular brokers dont care
to cosh the notes, because, unless the
crew-list tbat is brought back by tbe
pilot shows that the man who drew tl e
nolo is on board, the agents won't pay the
inoney."
"About twonty years ago I signed articles in New York for a voyage to San
Francisco. Mo and my wife drew our
advanced notes, cashed them, and filled
up chuck full. I didn't feel myself being
carried aboard, and I'll swear my mate
was no wiser. Anyhow, they couldn't
awake either of us In the mornln' when
they were gottin' up the anchor, ami wo
were well out to sen, snd the pilot gono
when I managed to tumble ou deck.
" 'Hello I1 roared the captain as soon ns
hessw me. 'You're able to he about ut
last, ore yon T Now, will you just got
below again and see if yoa can haul I lint
buy lubber that came aboard witii you
out of his bunk, for I'm blest,' he suys,
'if any ont else In the ship can awake
him/
"I went below nnd grabbled my mnto
by the shoulder, but as I shook him I
thought there was something wrong with
him. and I looktd at his face'. No wonder It was hard to get him on deck, lie
was stono dead. He bad died, 1 heard
th*' mate, who was * scholar, say afterwords, of alcosomethlng, and the blackguard of a boardln'-hopfe keeper, not
wantin' to lose the value of the note, had
just shoved him aboard with the others,
and as they dragged the drunken men
below nobody noticed that this one was
dead. You should have heard the captain swear when I told him shout it.
"I had a hard voyage that time, and I
was thinkin' of givin' np drink altogether, but I didn't. WhatMl I take ? Well,
now, I was just goln'to ask you; but you
spoke first, didn't you?"
Probably one of the molt remarkable
wills ever made was drawn up in Pittsburg on February 17, 1847. Tlio testator, Ambrose Rethargn, who is lli'ty-two
years of age, after disposing of $10, 'HI I in
real estato, directs as follows i "I diro.it

by Ayer's Fills.

A H0ME~C0MPANY,
This. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Security offered to policy holders ts
unsurpassed by any Company doing business ln Canada,
It has no schemes of insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misted as to thefr contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every Item of Income and how expended.
Its position Is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation ln which every Item
of liability Is Included.
Its progress has been unexampled In
the history ol Insurance In Canada.
Ita policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfettable after two years'
existence.
IU profits are distributed upon an equitable oasis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other olass. which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Stuay Cows.—Many complaints nre
made at tho number uf stray cows
roaming about tho streets at night and
committing all sorts of depredations in
the vegetable gardens. At an early
hour the other morning one of our
most respectable citizens while chasing
a cow down the street was mistaken by
his neighbor for a burglar, and a very
lively chase onsuod. The presence of
tho cow soon dispolled the idea of his
being a burglar aud tho two joined issues in making the animal sorry for
having visited that neighborhood.
The police should put these animals into pound, bell or no bell.
The Wrong Bird.
A Chinese cook eamo within nn ace
of making one of our oitizens demolish
an owl. The owl was to be stuffed
and was hanging up in tho cellar.
Ohing thought it waa a duck and after
cooking it put it on the table in a very
tempting mannor. As no ono in
the family could remember having
ordered a duck to be seut home, Ching
was uked to explain, he did so and the
duck proved to be au owl.
Accldenlol Death.
A deaf mute named Fred. Richardson, aged 25, was found in tho wator

malerial fever and was admitted! to
the hospital but left it during the absence of the steward; nothing more
was heard of him until his body was
found yesterday morning.

of the club, and the matches can bo
played by telegraph. We hope tho
tournament can be arranged.

The Y. M. 0. A. book sooinl this
evening in the basement of the Baptist
ohuroh ought to bo woll patronized.
Everyone is invited to ntiond, the only
stipulation being that they bring a
book with them. It is not absolutely
necessary that each person should only
bring one book, a dozen will be ns welcome as one, and possibly morejso. A
well chosen programme has been arranged and after which iB over a nico
little supper will be given. Anyone
who attends is sure of a ploasant
evening and we hope to boo tho toom
crowded.
For some time an errant cow has
been the tho cause of muoh annoyance
tn parties living on the hill above the
school house. This cow is an intelligent animal and can open any sort of a
gate without the least trouble, and
when the vegetables ill the gardens
look particularly inviting it docs not
hesitate to knock down a few lengths
of fenoe to effect an entranco. One
house up the hill, has been particularly annoyed by the visits of this animal,
whioh no amount of physical or moral
petanssion conld induce to stay
sway. It wns resolved by a certain
crowd of young men, who reside in the
house, to get even by drawing the milk
from the cow whioh tbe vegetables of
their garden helped to produce. Accordingly tho first time tho cow made
its appearance the Chinaman was dispatched with a rope end captured it;
the tallest young man then took the
animal by tho horns while two othor
young men proceoded to extraot the
fluid, ono holding the can and tho
other, who claims to be a second Cin-
oinnatus, did tile milking. When the
can was filled the industrious young
men retired to tho house whero they
onjoyed a nice bowl of bread.and milk
ss the fruits of their industry. They
will receive the oow on its next visit
in the same friondly manner.

A Disclaimer.
Editor CoiraniAN.— lam informed
that my letter in your issue of Monday,
has created a false impression, respecting tho maimer in which the land
agent became acquainted with the fact
of tho cashing of a cortain cheque. 1
wrote nn "officious" person. Some, I
am told, have confounded this with
"official," whereas 1 am oredibly informed, that tlie person who conveyod
tho information, is in no manner connected with the staff of the Bank. Of
this I w s perfectly satis.red. I regret
that I havo innocently been the causo
of nny misunderstanding.
Yours truly,
