The bones of animals were used
as skates and sledge-runners in prehistoric Europe, and it seems they
are still so employed in Northern

At a late meeting of the Astronomical Society of France, Col. Laus-
sedat exhibited a curious binocular
glass constructed in 1861 for Louis

being about ten feet.
From 75 to 80 per cent, of the
earth tremors observed in Tokio, according so Prof. Milne, may be accounted for on tbe supposition that
they have been produced either by
local or distant winds. The only
connection between earth tremors
and earthquakes in Central Japan is
that they are both more frequent
about the same season.
Britain seems to have arrived at a
point of her civilization similar to
that reached years ago by France,
when the increase of native population begins diminishing. That is
shown by the rapid decrease of the
number of marriages. In 1853 there
were 17,9 marriages to every 1,000
inhabitants; in 1885 there were
only 14.4 and in 1886 only 14.ll to
1,000.—Ex,
The high license system seems to
have begun well in St. Paul, so far,
at least, as its effect upon the number of saloons is concerned. The
time for the issue of licenses under
the new Minnesota law expired last
week, and only 270 were taken out,
as against 750 under the old law.
The city's revenue from this source
will now be $270,000, as against
$75,000 before. A great gain has
thus been effected in both respects.
-Mail.
A stringent licensing law is suggested for the province of Quebec.
The proposal is that all applicants
for licenses shall give notice of their
application in the Official Gazette
and in the public press, and shall
produce before the commission a
petition, signed by a majority of the
electors in the district, in fa ver of
the granting of the license before
the license can be given. A petition signed by a majority in favor of
withdrawing a license is to be decisive against the license holder, and
the judges are to have the power to
revoke licenses as part punishment
for violations of the law.
The monkey calls for the immediate attention of the insurance companies. In a Michigan town a few
weeks ago, a monkey whose morals
had been corrupted by association
with the variety stage, hurled a
kerosene lamp into the auditorium,
setting fire to the building and in
the end destroying tho whole town.
Last week the steam yacht Norma,
lying in the East Hi ver, was burned
at a considerable loss. Investigation showed that a pet monkey hud'
set fire to the vessel by pouting oil
on n coil of rope and touching n
lighted match to it. The monkey
must go.—Milwaukee Sentinel.
It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good. The heroic Dakota
teaoher who saved the lives of twelvo
of her school children during the
blizrard has received nine offers of
marriage, snd the young woman
who was resoucd from a snow-drift
by a commercial traveller was married on the following day to the man
to whom she owed her life. If a
blizzard would increase the activity
in the matrimonial market in this
oountry it cannot eome too soon.
Nor would a similar catastrophe be
unwelcome in Qreot Britain. ITiere
the marriage rate has fallen off from
seventeen to fourteen per thousand
inhabitants, and something must be
done to increase wedlock or the
clergymen will soon experience n
considerable reduction in their incomes.— Toronto Mail.

London, Feb. 13.—Major Templar,
of the Seventh Rifles, and one of the
chiefs of the military balloon department, who was arrested at Chatham
yesterday for divulging amy secrets,
will have great difficulty in escaping
condign punishment for his offence, if,
indeed he'is so fortunate. It is abundantly proven in advance of the trial,
that he sold to a Birmingham maker of
balloons, tho secret of the gas apparatus of the balloons used in tbe English
army. The Birmingham manufacturer
constructed a similar apparatus from
the plans furnished and sold it to the
Italian government for use in the ex-
pediriou-against King John of Abyssinia, and the excellence of Ihe balloon
servico at Massowah, which received
universal compliment, was due to the
Birmingham firm immediately and to
Major Templar primarily.* Already
preparations are making to try Major
Templar by court martial, -j
MR. O'BBIEN'S   AHItEST.
London, Feb. 13,—In tht house of
commons this evening, Ira. Picton,
member for Leicester, directed the attention of the house to the breach of
privilege committed in the. arrest of
Messrs. Pyne and P. O'Brien and
Gilhouly. The speaker said that Pyne
and Gilhooly had been arrested upon
criminal warrants, and therefore there
had been no breach of privilege in
their cases. In the case of P. O'Brien,
the speaker ruled that a breach of
privilege had been committed. Mr.
Henry Matthews, the home secretary,
apologized to the house and to Mr.
O'Brien for the unfortunate indignity
to whioh the gentleman had boen subjected. Sir K. E. Webster, the attorney-general, denied that any privilege existed, and therefore there could
not have been a breach. Explanations
and apologies had been given to
O'Brien, and if he were not satisfied
with them he could prosecute the
polico officials and obtain the remedy
he sought elsewhere than in the houso.
Mr. Picton, in arguing his motion, declared that the arrest of O'Brien while
leaving the house was a great breach
of the privilege of parliament, and Mr.
McLaren, in seconding the motion,
made reference to the arrest of Pyne
and Gilhooly. Tho speaker promptly
nt upon Mr. McLaren by the question
of tho arrest of that gentleman he mentioned was not before the house. Sir
R. E. Webster then came to the rescue of the government by moving an
amendment that the house regretted
the indignity put upon O'Brien, but
stating that in consideration of the
fact that his arrest waa a mistake, it
was unnecessary for the house to pro.
csed further in the matter. Mr
Gladstone admitted that as far as an
apology was concerned, Mr. Matthews
had done all that could be expected,
but the fact remains that O'Brien waa
seized by the police without a warrant.
Thero were reasonable grounds for referring the matter to the committee on
privilege he said, and ho would move
such a reference if Sir It. E. Webster's amendment was carriod. Sir E.
G. Clarke, the eolicitor-gonon.1, remarked as there had been no breach
of privilege, there was nothing to refer
to a committee. Mr. Piirncll said that
if ah English member was to have
been arrested, detectives would have
been sent out who were acquainted
wilh tho personal appearanco of the
member. He protested against the
duties imposed upon tho constables of
guarding parliament. It vtns surely,
ho thought, a question of privilego
whether inombers wore ulcered to leave
parliament uninolesred. Mr. Smith
denied that duties of espinnngc had
beon imposed upon any rrf the officers
of the house, Mr. Morley intimated
thst the opposition would allow Mr.
Picton's motion to bo negatived without a division, and movod tho reference to the committee on privilege,
which motion was rejected, 240 to 151.

country. Its boing hold to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the fall
of the Brrstile is generally accepted as
the excuse, but those who ought to
know assort thut the reason lios muoh
deeper and the sole outcome of Lord
Lytton's appoal has been lo induce
Ihe foreign office to issue n lukewarm
circular to the:chambers of commerce
drawing attention to the exhibition
snd leaving them, if they like, to organize a British committeo. Thero
seems reason to bcliovo that tho exhibition will be a success and the British
manufacturers will suffer from the advantages givon thoso of othor countries,

A TERRIBLE DERRICK ACCIDENT.
New York, Feb. 14.—A message
from Brooklyn says a heavy hoisting
derrick, used on the elevated railroad,
full this morning on a car passing beneath. The accident was due to the
spreading of the rails. The car wu
crushed like an egg-shell and seventeen
of the passengers were injured and two
killed. Michael MoAnally, the driver,
was crushed to death. Half of the oar
following was wrecked. It is quite
sure several persons sre burned in till
ruins, snd workmen are busy removing
the debris. Among those believed to
be fatally injured is. Judge Peterson, of
Brooklyn. The plaoe of the aocident
is always filled with people, ud then
were many narrow escapes. There is
the wildest excitement and tho sight of
the crushed and bleeding persons and
mass of broken limbs is terrible. It il
now lesrned that Karl Keishler, a
laborer on the derrick, was killed.'
Later—The latest from the Brooklyn accident says two more laborer! on
the "L" road were killed. Of those
injured eight were employees of the
road. The workmen were engaged in
hoisting a gilder into position when
the accident occurred, and suddenly
the whole apparatus began to tremble
and the> men to their honor saw tin
entire mass go down, carrying six men
with it. Owing to steam from the derrick boiler it was for a time impossible
tn rescue the persons from the wreck
or remove the debris. By 12 o'clock
but little had been done. The girders
fell across the forward part of the clr
and rested on the two horses whieh
were crushed to Ihe ground with leg!
spread nut from their bodies. Foreman Scliafer became ao siok at the
dreadful sight that he had to be moved
tn his home.

of acting specifically open the diseased

Tuesday  Evening, Feb. II, 1W».
The flrecr rase.
A few days ago wc published the
judgment of the chief justice in the
case of the C.P.R. vs. Greer.. Judgment was in favor of tho railway,
and the chief justice intimated thnt
Ureer's only roddress would bo un
appeal to the legislature, from tlie
first tho Colombia's has lurk! tho
belief thut Greer's title to thn valuable lands claimed by him on Coal
Harbor was utterly worthless. At
the time this matter cniiiir before
the legislature iu 188S we published
the evidence nt considerable length,
but ns ninny people who havo sineo
arrived in tlie province may lie ignorant of the diroumstanoos, a brief
review will be of interest. When
it became known that the 0. 1J. It.
would probably be extended from
Port Moody to Coal Harbor, n great
many people who foresaw that property in the vicinity of the new
terminus would become very valuable, began to look about for opportunities of acquiring possession of
some, of these lands. Among others,
Mr..Samuel Greer went into this
speculation. For this purpose bo
claimed to have purchased the title
of two Indians who had beon living
on a Coal Harbor lot, situateB between lot 192 nnd the Indian reserve, and'in witnoss of bis titlo
produced'.what purported to be u
conveyance from these Indians,
bearing the signature of Mr. McTiernan, the Indian agent, lt was
held by the govornmeut that this
land- was expressly reserved from
pre-emption, and that the so-called
Indian title was "ind. In order to
ascertain the facts Sir M. li. Begbie,
the chief justice, was appointed by
royal commission. He held sittings
at Victoria, Westminster and Coal
Harbor, and after taking the evidence and considering the facts lie
reported adversely to Greer's claim.
The report of the chief justice is
very sweeping. The conveyance of
title from the Indians to Urter lio
pronounced worthless. "I linve,"
lie says, " to report that, in my
opinion, it is fully established that
the impeached deed is not genuine
in any sense of the word; that the
names and marks of the two signatories, ond nlso of P. MoTiernau,
are forgeries." He further declares
that as all the forged names were
placed on the document while it was
in Greer's sole possession, he does
not see how Greer could havo been
ignorant of the fact that they bad
been forged. Moreover, the chief
justice reports that Greer's whole
sworn statement " must bo false,
and probably knowingly and wilfully false." This disposes effectually
of Greer's title under the Indian
conveyance. In so far as his title
might be made good by pre-emption,
his lordship intimates that this was
beyond tbe scope of his enquiry.
He notes, however, that there are
several objections on  that  ground:
(1) The land was in the Hastings
Mill leasehold, and could not be
pre-empted without the consent of
tho manager and ohief commissioner, which had not been procured.
(2) It was not unreserved land,
having been expressly reserved by
the chief commissioner. (3) lt was
not unoccupied land: thero were
two Indians and one or two white
men raising crops there. (4) Neither the pre-emptor, nor any person
on his behalf, erected a single post
as required by the act, or of nny
kind. (5) The alleged prc-eniptor
has nevor yet spent a single night
on the land, although in bis letter
of application ho alleges that ho is
"living on the land." (C) The preemption record was at once and
definitely refused. (7) No certificate of improvement appears to have
been issued, without which no pre-
emptor can convey any title, evon
if his pre-emption title is unimpeachable. Notwithstanding this report
from the chief justice of British
Columbia, Greer stuck to tbe land
and defended it against all comers.
He found quite a number of persons
willing to tako a chance with him,
nnd divided up part of the properly
into small lots, issuing argeomerrts
to purchase to any one who was
foolish enough to pay for thorn. In
this way he is said to have obtained
quite a sum with which to carry on
his case in the courts. It is not
probable that any of tho persons
who purchased these agreements
ever read the report of tho chief
justice in which the title and the
man who holds it are so completely
exposed. Under all the circumstances it does not seem to us possible that the legislature could for n
moment entertain Greer's claim if
any attempt is made to bring it into the house. If tho conclusions
reached by the chief justice are
well founded, Greer has not only no
title to the land, but has boen guilty
of perjury and fraud such as must
deprive him of all ground for
publio sympathy.

MEMORIES OV BEECHER.
Sumo EiampU-** of His Hjnipntliy, Humor
and BilUlnucy
Tho following extracts nre selected from
the 1'ii'i-i-lier Memorial* a littlo volume edited
hy Mr. Edward W. Uok, Brooklyn, and com-
J* rcised of short tributes to Henry Ward
iceclu'r's memory mid delineations of his
mun v-|dmsed iidttire by a number of distin-
fftiilicd men and w»nien, many of whom
were intimate friends of Mr, Bceclicr. Bays
Dt. Talmuge:
i Many a Ions ride lind we together In the
biil-enfs, going to great distances. His un-
cedotes never gave nut, nud wc never had so
trood a time together na when we got into
discussions In wh it'll wo were diametrically
(opposed. He on the way to .Cincinnati, und
I on the way tn Chicago, while nearing Pittsburgh, he enid tn me: "Talmuge? you don't
know anything idiom inathenuities." I said
to him, "I know as much about them ns you
do," so we went into competitive examination on the "rmdiipljciiti-iii table," und ho
tried "eight-times,  und broke down, and I
,'tried "nine-times," with similar discomfiture.
Wc then agreed never again tu make any
allusion to the subject of mathematics.
. Chnrles Dudley Warner thus describes a
remarkable intellectual lilt, in which Mr.
/IH-ceher    successfully   defended    himself
,'itgainst overwhelming numbers:
\ Mr. Heechermi the pint form, und excited—
either by opposition, which roused the lion
in him, or by the cause, which evoked the
/deepest emotions of his soul—wasa marvel,
J heard him deliver mice ono of the fo inula-
J tion discourses on pmiehing to the theological students at Yule.   It was nn address of
[very considerable power, suggestive, rond-
isccnt, witty, full «>( tint wisdom of experience ; nut the great intellectual display came
afterward, when lie said- that he would try
)to niiBwer any questions put to him. Of all
people to ask uncomfortable «ud insoluble
.jucstions, I suppose (hat young theological
-students, freshly familiar with all the dog-
•initio niceties and doubts of the books, are
the most troublesome; ami Mr. Iteecher, who
always freely laid himself open by great
breadth of statement, was a most delightful
■target for their Ingenuity. The first ijucs-
tion keyed him up to the keenest enjoyment
}\t the situation. For some three-quarters of
ju hour he stood there, alert, excited, but
(never more completely muster of all  his
i *owers, and replied to the questions thrust
■wt him from every side in rapid succession—
ifluostious of every conceivable sort, in
■ henry, practice timl speculation.   His ro-
'lilies "were always brier, and they came ns
quick* as a flash of lightning.   I never saw
-.before or since—for it seemed as If you could
hue his mind flash—-such tin intellectual display. He was witty, Ink-astlc, subtle, hit-
inorous; his replies went to the mark like a
[bullet; they were commonly the very essence
;if common sense Hut the marvel was in
the agility of his mind, turning instantly to a
'new question shot at him without warning,
iind without an instant's hesitation in his
(answer. The answer was not always a per-
Vet solution; when you thought it over, It
divas sometimes a witty evasion which turned
lie laugh npon tho interlocutor, but it was a
tlnsh that did the work for tho moment perfectly.
•   And Melville IX London (Eli  Perkins)
■jrings out before us the pre-eminent and
^compelling sympathy of tho man:
I In all of his humor, Mr. Iteecher never
harmed a human soul.   His mirth wns in no-
rent and bit wit wus for a grand purpose.
The kind heart of Mr. Iieccher, und the
■"■fleet of hit sweet life upon humanity, ean
tie no better illustrated than by a little incident which happened one cold, wintry morii-
;ug, as the kind-hearted preacher wus buying
It newspaper of a ragged, shivering Irish
newsboy.
*1Poor little fellow I" sighed the sympathiz*

It was ih lv-'o that Chopin succumbed lo
rliis first love. Her name was Constance
Vilndkowskn. She had blue eyes and yellow
Amir, a charming presence, a clear and
■vibrant voice; she was prima donna at the
■uVnmtw Opera House, nnd Chopin adored
\er. He was a sentimental and timid youth,
lowever, und he appears to have left his
passion it»uttered, and to have departed—
bever to return—without t sign. (-Hid he.

light have been very different from what it
as, for Mile. Gladkowska was not at all
Imposed to be severe, and Chopin might,
V-'ount Wodciuski opines, have won her for
the asking. As he did not, she married
[tome one else. Chopin, It may be added,
i as slow to replace her Image with another's.
t was not until 1835, when he conquered a
losltion ns one of the first of European
Irtuosl, that he fell a victim for the second

Uie Pension Chopin; from the first the
■tittle pianist had been a frequent visitor at
>lui £wo, whero Marie (her namo was
t litrle) lived; nnd she herself had taken lea-
tuns of him—was, Indeed, the first pupil he
;vcr had. Since then,' however, a great
leal had happened, Tbe Poliili insurrection
Snd burst forth and been trampled out:
Jlnrie and her family were in exile and

Tiioulsts and one of the most original and

this time In Dresden, where Marie was iu
residence with her uncle the Palatine, end a
fear or ao afterward at Marlenhad. Chopin
im his fortune to the touch and lost it all.
Whey might, it seems, hare been happy but
Kor Marie's people! The Palatine, however,
I was not musical enough to bestow his niece
wpon a mere pianist, even though that
uaiiiit was Frederick Chopin, and in 1837
i,.uric married a certain Count Skarbeck,
[rom whom ihe was presently divorced!

In large cities, nml especially in those
■xhichhavo largo el.ippiirg aud trading
interests, it is nl ways very desirable to
have timo whicli shall not only bo exact,
but official, an.! accepted by everybody.
In several of the large cities ofthe I nited
States this otl'.i in', hour is fixed by an ingenious, and vi't simple nnd easily visible
apparatus, called ihe time-bail.
At Washington, I'liilndelpliiaandNow
York a hall, placed upon a stuff on some
central and lofty building, is dropped by
a common electric current from the observatory at Washington.
At lioslon, tire bull is dropped by an
electric current from the observatory at
Harvard College,
Tie New Yuri! time-ball is at tho ».p
of a tower three hundred and twelve (Nt
high, whicli is u part of the Wrttorn
Union Telegraph Company's building.
At n distance it looks like a solid ball
It is really hollow, and inVle of twelve
strips oishettl-t'njip'i'. It ispjared upon
a metallic platform thirty icret huh, no
that the bull it'oil ir throe liiiinlr.rj and
forty one feet above lire level of the sea.
lt fulls about eight yards: and when
it hus rescued the end of its fall, it is
held fast by an apparatus whieh prevents
it from bounding.
livery morning llie ball is drawn upto
the summit of its pule, nud when exactly
twelvo o'clock in trr liked itpuu the dock
at tlio observatory lit Wn'siiihgton, two
hundred and twenty oielu miles from
Kew York, an electric oummt, automatically operated rom this observatory,
acts upon anek'rtiu-rii gnet Whieh draws
a lever in such a way that the hall fails
by its own weight. The ball ia thus
dropped in Kew fork aud Philadelphia
by a machine at Washington, nnd iu the
former city its fall is visible seven miles
away.
A great many peoplo besides thoso
who have need to know tho exact time
once every day watch tho fall of the
time-ball, in order to seo how closely
their own time-pieces are running, and
set them It they are wrong.
Tho time-ball Iocs nil: finish its work
merely by falling. Not every ono can
take the time or the trouble to watch its
fall. A number of clocks have been
connected electrically with it, and are
automatically regulated by tho fall ofthe
ball.

two Weeks with the Wrens, and went

crime home declaring thut she had never
seen such lovely people, or had such a

1'irst l.iulo Iiird: "But you say ahe

First l.it.lo llird: "And did I under,
stand yon to say thut when ahe did write
she iillcil half her letter with apologies
for not writing before?"
Second I—tlio llird: "Of course she had
to make some excuse for' her delay in
acknowledging their kindness and courtesy lo her."
First Little llird: "What did Jenny
Wrou think about It?"
Second Little Bird: "That I cannot
s ry, Imt I have heard that Jenny Wren's
mother sairl that in her day a guest always took timo immediately on her return to write to hor hostess, and Mrs.
Wrvn thou-lit thnt it would be a pily to
abandon thn oid courteous custom."
First Little Bird; "A great pity indeed, a vory groat pity! But there the

A Sluggish Liver
Causes the Stomach and Bowels to become disordered, and the whole system
to suffer from debility. In all such
cases Ayer's Fills give prompt relief.
After muoh suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles. I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer'a Cathartio Fills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their aotion, and their occasional use
keepa me in aperfectly healthy condition.—Ralph weeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-fire years ago I suffered from
a torpid lirer, which was restored to
healthy aotion by taking Ayer's Fills.
Since that time I hare nover been without them. They regulate tbe bowels,
assist digestion, and increase the appetite, more surely than any other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer's
Fills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, aud Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated, I
bad no appetite, suffered from Head-
Khe, was pale and emaciated. A few
izes of Ayer'a Fills, taken ln moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
• Ayer's Fills are a superior family
medicine. Thoy strengthen and Invigorate the dlgestfre organs, create an appetite, and remore the horrible depres-
'lon and despondency resulting from
Liver Complaint. I have used these
rills in my family, for years, and they
never tall to giro entire satisfaction

The office of chief of police has been
abolished by the Council on tho
grounds of retrenchment. The wisdom
of this course is to be greatly doubted
and it may turn out to be a case of
"penny wise and Dound foolish," The
oity is certainly quiet and peaceable at
present, but how long it will remain so
after the fishing season commences is a
question not to be easily answered. A
good man's services havo been lost to
the oity.
A letter was resd at the council
meeting last night from Henry T.
Thrift, of Hall's Prairie, calling attention to the inefficiency of the ferry
between Brownsville and this oity,
end stating it would be unfair to advise
immigrants to settle in the district
while the means of reaching market
are io extremely unsatisfactory. Tho
council appointed a committee to enquire into the means for securing a
more efficient lervice,
SU Valentine's Day.
Some dear creature remembered this
was St. Valentine's day and also kopt
iu memory the fact thnt even a poor,
hungry editor's heart might bu mado
moro glad and lightsome by a loving
token in the form of a valentine. Yes,
wo received a li tho *ch romo, highly
colored and expensive valentine. It
warms our heart to look nt it, nnd wns
tbe dour sender within reach of our
soissors she would receive a reivplion
nt our hands which would not hick iu
ardour and warmth. The valentine is
highly colored and gives us credit for
wearing better clothes than is ..actually
tho case, but probably thnt ..was
through delicacy of feeling nnd not
wishing to enst our poverty in our faco
by painting the true facts. Our uoso
and stockings am both colored a rich
and expensive shade of deep rod, tho
former we have not fully matured yet
and the latter—woll it'boats us ootn-
pletoly how tlio dear creature know wo
wore rod stockings. Tho picture generally, is a good ono, and reflects groat
credit on tho nrtist. It ia subdued and
chasto in tone, colored by tho brush of
a true disciple and finished in a manner which denotes tlio work of a master
hand. The accompanying lines,
tliough composed without much regard
to euphony and rhythm, contain sentiments which strike deeper nud will
last longer than if they had been
studiously shaped into a prettily
turned verse.
Tbe Rifles nnd Bntlery.
Last night Sergt. L'Amour whose
services havo been secured m instructor
for the rifles and artillery, took charge
of tho purnde, and showed himself io
be just what was required, a well
drilled and efficient Boldier. The battery was formed into a squad without
arms for squad drill, nnd tho instructor
proceeded to practice the mon in turnings, saluting and other squad drill,
by numbers. The men pniU closo attention and had mado satisfactory pro-
gross when the drill wns concluded.
The rifles parade to-night and will begin a thorough course of instruction in
squad and company drill. Until farther orders tho artillery will parade on
Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays,
and tho rifles un Tuesdays, Wednesdays und Fridays. Tho officers of the
two corps are defraying the expenses
of tho instructor's services from their
"own pockets, and certainly deserve
much credit for their zeal for the service. Capt. Bole, who is obliged to bo
in Victoria attending to his legislative
duties, still keeps a bright lookout over
his corps nnd watches its interests from
afar. Capt. Scoullar will be ou parade
evory drill night, and personally superintend the instruction ot his company.
It ia to bo hoped the men, now that
they hnve n chance, will attend all parades regulnrly and take advantage of
this fine opportunity of becoming well-
dialled soldiers—a credit to themselves
and to their corps.

Winnipeg, Fob. 5.— There litis been

parts of the province, owing to the
grain blockade, which is yet in full

Mr. J. II. Brock, the well-known conservative, in a letter to tho press,
points out that the Canadian Pacific
railway is carrying grain by the "Soo"
route at ono half the rates charged
Manitobatis. He adds, "can a further
proof bo required thnt competition is
the only lever which will enable us to
get justice and fair treatment from
the Canadian Pacific railway? On tho
one hnnd, monopoly, with its certain
effect in nil cases, exorbitant charges,
and in our case aggravated by a defective service mid insufficient rolling
stock to move our crop whon of most
vital importance to our peoplo. On
the other hand, competition, low
charges and effective sarvico. Down
with tho task-masters who would compel us to make brick undor a protective tariff in the interests of eastern
manufacturers and without straw. Lot
us insist on free competition in tho
hauling of our produce and merchandise. With u capable nnd determined
government in this province wo cm

who are trying to cngineor the sale."

AN AERONAUT'S FATE.
pumrn, Minn., Feb. 10.- A farmer
living in the wood several miles from
this city, reports the discovery, in the
woods several miles from his dwelling,
of a stranded balloon, no also discovered in the limbs of a tree, against
which the balloon wns caught, tho dead
and half decayed body of a man, who
had evidently boen thrown violently
from the basket, for the body was
wedged in the branches. The man
had been probably about thirty years
of ago. There was nothing in the
pockets of the dead man by which he
could be identified. The car contained
a sand bag half full, a compass, etc. A
broken rope, trailing some distance,
showed that the unfortunate aeronaut
had made every effort to bring his
dangerous craft to a standstill before it
was torn in pieces by (he gale aud he
was dashed to death. It is supposed
the balloon is the ono which went up
last spring from a southern point and
was never heard of.

F. Burrows, of Wilkesport, writes
that he was cured of a very dangerous
caso of inflammation of the lungs, solely
by the uso of fivo bottles of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric OU. Feels great pleasure
iu recommending it to the public, as he
had proved it (for many of the diseases
it mentions to cure) through his friends,
and in nearly every instance it was effectual. Do not be deceived by any
imitations of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric O/l.
Be sure you get the genuine.

Advices from Hon. Edward Blake
show that ho is still in Rome enjoying improved, health, and will be
away some months yet. It is therefore unlikely he will take his seat ut
Ottawa during the coming session.
