Oar otteiponry of the Von
Btfald thinks thst the
ot this provinoe will never
be properly managed until the man
■gNBent of them is taken out of
Um, lands af the gOTsmment Ihe
govtfnnient, it ssys, is too slow to
rtsMnd to the demands for the ts-
ta_____Mnt of sehools snd for their
el___«t ■lintensn-e, beoause it hu
not tin same interest ts the people
fcr whese partieular benefit the demand is nude. It thinks the gov*
ernment should have a supervisory
authority only, and thtt tU other
authority should be vetted in the
municipalities. The Columbian has
mors than onpe expressed the opin-
rlctn that municipalities in this provinoe will before long have tobe
msde responsible for the sohools; but
as there Is a very large portion of
the country without municipal or-
ganintion, the proposal at present
could be carried out only partially.
It it unquestionably the best system
when practicable, however, and we
hope it Soon will be practicable in this
province. When the proper tine
cornel' fcr adopting this system we
an sure the government will be,
only tod willing to surrender tye-
n»n_CTpfnt_.of\i-Eo_l iftttters to
.-the." municipalities and the local
school boards.

Notwithstanding frequent exposures, spiritualism seems still to retain the adhesion of a considerable
number of dupes. In Boston a
short tittle ago a girl named Clara
-rotable want to a seance conducted
by Charles and Hannah Ross. These
people had been carrying on a lucrative business for some time in
materialising, but although Miss
Crombie paid a dollar to get a peep
tt a deceased lover, for some unexplained cause her wish was not gratified, Her money Was retained,
however, the mediums believing, we
suppose, that "in such a case tbe
gin-would not be apt to make her
self -onspicuoiis for so small t sum.
But in this they were mistaken, for
the lodged a oomplaint against the
establishment, tnd the police made
a raid upon it. In court the officer
who directed the raid testified that
he ttixed' the paraphernalia used by
the mediums* of the seance, and
they "consisted of old skirts and
other clothing, masks, wigs, and
false whiskers." He stated also
thtt ht ctpt und several of the supposed spirits, but found them very
materia. fi_ih snd blood. It is very
nmarhaUt that people othorwisesen-
eiblft Should be oarried tway by suoh
deinstall. The results of spiritualis
tio teaching, tnd manifestations are
not such as to promote the well-being
of the people, and the praotioe is indefeasible on any ground whatever.
It certainly does not make men bet-
tar citisens or better fitted for either
this world or the next, and in many
cases it makes them useless drones
in society, or lands them in the
pendence is a quality which many
of our legislators might cultivate
with much advantage to themselves
and the country. While we believe it1 would bet very gre_t misfortune if the present opposition
should by any means succeed in getting into office, we are glad to welcome into our legislature capable
men who are free to consider the
interests of the country as of infinitely mora importance than party
success, We hope Mr. Fry may
prove himself one of these.
CONFEDERATION  LIFE
cowichan Election.
H".  -fry haa been elected for
Oo-ioheu by a majority of 15 over
Hr. 8_tton, who was what might
be called the straight government
candidate.   Mr. Evans,' the straight
opposition oandidate, was  24 behind Mr. Fry.   The result, there-
ton, is not a conspicuous triumph
(or any ptrty, tnd it is certainly
not in tny sense a triumph for the
opposition - whose man stood at the
bottom ot the heap.   Both Mr. Fry
and Mr; Sutton wen in favor of
the present government, and the
combined vote of the two was 181
against in opposition vote of 74.
While this result, shows conspicuously tht.: the opposition it Cowi-
ehtn is in a hopeless minority, it
shows alto that the straight government ttndidtte wis either muoh leu
popular than Mr. Fry, or elte that
Mr. Fry's principles were more acceptable to the eleotors.    We believe the retrogressive legislation of
lut session, giving power to any
two mk_Mt mag-states to issue t
liquor   ttsnuM   ta -municiptlities
through whM- a railway passes, had
something to do with the defeat of
Mr. Button.    Tfctr. legislation was
outrageous, and although the pro*
•Md ttcnttly, who wis the only
■Ur. of the government in

ly and repeatedly against
it, i^j people hold the government
in -MM measure responsible.   Mr.

Proceedings of the Fifteenth
Annual Meeting.
■eld at tbe Head •«<-«, Toronto Street,
Toi-anta, ea Th.m1i:., April uth,
INT. al I p. m,   '
The meeting was well attended by
policy holders, shareholders and others
interested.
The President was elected chairman,
and J. K. Macdonald, secretary of the
meeting.
The chairman called upon the secret*
ary to read the notice calling the meet*
ing, whieh waadone.
The minutes w the last annual meet-
ins were taken as read.
The President then submitted the fifteenth annual report as follows:—
The close of the year 1886 completes
the three quinquennial periods of the aa*
■odiation's existence, and tho results,
from whatever stand-point viewed, afford
striking evidence of true progress.
It is, therefore, with a large measure
of satisfaction that the directors meet
the policy-holders and shareholders in
the fifteenth annual meeting with evidence of success unequalled in the history
of Canadian life companies. It has continued to be the aim of the directors to
secure business at reasonable rates, and
henco they have avoided the extravagance in that direction which too strongly
marks the struggle for pre-eminence botween life insurance companies. A safe
bnsiness, on only well-tried Hues of insurance, has been Bought for, and therefore all merely specious plans, which, in
the opinion ot the directors," are certain
to prove delusive, have been avoided.
The adoption of suoh plans and a less,
.conservative course in caring for the
policyholders' money, would have led td
a largely increased volume of business;
but, if that course had boen adopted, a
less satisfactory balance sheet and a decreased surplus would have been the
result.
During the year (including 112 re*
assurances for 9173,250 from the. Life
Association of Canada) 1*019 applications
for a total assurance of $2,977,100 were
received. Of these, 1,812 for $2,794,190
were approved, and 107 for $183,000
were declined. It should bo mentioned
that these results represents only eleven
months' work, and yet, us compared with
the full year 1885, the eleven months'
work shows and increase of 427 accepted
applications for $497,062 of assurance.
No stronger evidence than the above
can well be offered, of the appreciation
by the public of -.the special advantages
afforded by the Association's high standard of security, and liberal terms and
results, combined with only sound plans
of assurance.
At the clou of the year the register
showed the following business in force:—
9,493 policies,on 8,476 lives, for$14,-
679,474 of aasutance.     •
In the matter of tho re-assurances
from the Life Association, and the consideration allowed for the. same, the
Directors might liave charged only a part
of the expenses of the year, carrying
the balance to some such nccoiiat- ha f
"Commuted Commissions;" but such a
course would have beeu contrary to the
practice of tills Company, and while ap
patently increasing the surplus, would
have been entirely worthless either as a
security or for division, therefore the
consideration was charged in full to the
expenses of the year. A sound balance
sheet will readily .compensate for as light
increase in the expense ratio.
The Death Claims for the year were
again favorable, calling for $85,948.85
which includes bonus (and Interim bonus) additions, under 56 policies on 49
lives. This fact sufficiently attests the
clre exercised in the admission of members. It witl be observed that the interest received more than provided for the
elaims.
The usual financial statements, duly
certified, are submitted herewith.   It
cannot fail to be a source of satisfaction
to alt Interested in the Company to note
the rapid growth in volume and strength
which tliese statements indicate.   The
following increases on the showing at
the close of 1886 are worthly of notes-
Interest nnd
Premium.,     Kent.        Rtmervc.

Assets. •     Htirplus.
taSSrSm** 180,281.08.
In the -'opinion of the Directors the
time hu arrived when the rate of interest used in calculating the polioy liabili-
ies should be reduced from four and one-
half per cent, to four per cent. The
large increase tn the Reserve, amounting
so nearly to $300,000, will indicate how
fully provision has been made for the
future payments whioh are sure to be
required. So thoroughly has the necessity for AB80LVTX safety been realized by
the Board, which, in ttie face of the
greatly reduced rate of interest now (and
likely to be) obtainable on flrst-class
Investments, can-only be assured by
reducing the asMtrnw rate of interest,
that they bave determined to hold a large
anm undistributed. Larger profits to the
policyholders at the present time would,
be but a poor compensation for a possible
Inability to provide at an early day for
the greater liability which will be occasioned by the Government compelling the
'assumption of four per cent, in calculating the Reserves. The Directors mean
to be prepared, and will therefore hold
for that purpose and for unseen contingencies the sum of $61,364.45 undistributed.
It wlll.be a canse of satisfaction to ttie
policyholders te learn that one-half of the
ten per cent, going to the shareholders
for the past quinquennium his been given
np, as a further protection to the policyholders being Included in the $61,365.45
eo specially reserved. This gives, practically, ninety-five per cent of the profits
of tne quinquennium to the policyholders.
The Confederation Uh has.done the
Canadian publie excellent service In
leading np to a measure of liberality on
the pen of the life companies strikingly
hi eontrut with whet prevailed before it
ms deemed desirable to come un to its
standard. This A*ociation still; main
tains its place in the van. '    ., .
It will be seen from the balance sheet
that the sum of $20O,_&D.5O his been all
Ideated to the policyholders. To this
should be added $10,239.78, -which.has
been paid out as Interim profits, making
the total profits to the p&cyhblderf for
the last five years $270,660.28 more tban
double the profits for the second quin-
quenrtium,
This result cannot fall to prove satis-
frctory, and more especially as so large a
provision has been made for ill contingencies under the apecial amount held as
undistributed surplus.
It has also been decided to bring the
amount paid on the new shares up to ten
percent, making the old and the new
alike. This will bo done by declaring a
bonus of $2 per share, and calling in $4
on the new snares. This bonus will be
declared out of the shareholders' surplus,
and will make the paid up capital $100,-
000, which will still further strengthen
the security of tbo policyholders.
The Directors felt that the time had
arrived for the creation of an Acturial
Department, and, on the recommendation of tlie managing director, it has been
organized.
The valuation of the Policy and Annuity obligations has been made by Mr. D.
Parks Fuokler, the woU-known Actuary,
of New York. His certificate wilt be
found appended to the Report.
The change decided upon last year in
regard to the quinquennial periods goes
into effect in 1887, and ln future the date
of the issue of the polioy will determine
its quinquennial periods. Policies sharing say four years' profits now, will, on
the acttlemont ofthe premium for 1888,
become entitled to the proflts for 1887,
the fifth year of the policy. Policies in
force for longer or shorter periods, will
similarly become entitled to profits in
1889-90, &c.
The directors have had the insufficiency of the present office accommodation
forced upon them by the rapidly growing
business, and have concluded that the
.time, had come when the Company should
possess a building of its own. They have
tried to purchase a suitable site, but
finding that impossible, have leased for a
period of 42 years, with the right to renew In perpetuity, the site on the northeast corner of Yonge and Richmond
streets. It is proposed to prooeed to
build as soon as may be prudent, and
have! the building ready for occupation
before the expiry of the lease of the present office..
The directors have pleasure in referring to the continued diligence and
faithfulness of the Office and Aaencv
Btaff. '
All the Directors retire, bnt are eligible
for re-election,

Btriku   every   ono  who   remembers
tkat  Ui:b   prrent variety  came originally (rom three or four apeoiea of wild
There ia now preserved in an Engliah
museum a litUa dog of the terrier kind
which was about two Jtm old st its
deai li. It was i xactlj it*, and one half
inches long, wliich ia gnat the length of
the nose ot a German boar honnd in
another part of the museum, measured
from the comer of the eye tothe tip of
the noae. Bo great ia the difference
that one can hardly realize that they
probably had a common ancestor.
The original wild doga had retry much
the aspect of wolvea—erect ean snd
bushy, flowing tails,
It b thought by many that the dogs
most nearly approaching them in ap'-
peemnoe ' ste nearest them in point of
development, and that the breed
closely related are shepherds, but an
exam&ation aod comparison of the
bones, and pSrti.n.a.!y the skills,
ahows tbat among the pm-cpal .bra-da
the line of descent ia: Fint, wild dog;
then Danish dog hounds, pointers;
terriers, pugs, spaniel* and pet doga
in general come last.
The inSuatuMO-sua overall nature
is most martedij thaw- .hi pet dogs.
They are, as a rule, ____], with tail
curved upwards, ean drooping, but
aure signs of domestication.
Besides, tha temperament and die-
position an wholly changed, whereas
wild dogs are natural hunters, the net
dogs being wholly ignorant of the wflee
cf the cluiJe. ri ...
A pug would probably be as much
surprised at the sudden, appearance of
a rabbit aa bunny would beat the pug.
The probability is that both would run
aa soonse thoy sa* eaoh oih-r.
Tho.nrietieabh.e.been so.long bred
that they wonld never return to orig-
inul 3i«cieB again, even if left to run
wild.
That they are closely related to
wolves and sueh animals, however, ia
shown by tho fact tbat they will breed
with thom and also by tbe taming of
wolvos taken very young. They be-
como gentle and affectionate.
A volt.whelp when young, if suddenly menaced by e master, will cringe
end b.g off just as a dog does when he
thinks lie is going to be whipped. They
hnve many other traits which indicate a
closo relationship.
Not only aro wolves capable ot domestication, but on theother hand dogs
often cBcapeakd become wild.
A caao is related of a greyhound who
concluded ahe would take to the
woods. After a year or two she was
captured and brought back. Ins few
montha she presented ber muter with
somo papa, ont as soon as they were
able to take can of themselves she left
them and again-runaway.
Three of the pups stayed at home
. and became good ettitens, but two
partook ofthe mother's nature and ran
away to join her. Tbey at last became
so destructive to young animals that
thsy wen hunted down sad shot.
Puppies get their eyes open on ths
tenth or twelfth day, teach their! fun
growth at the end of tha second year
and an very old at ten years, very few
of them reaching the green old age of
twenty.   Although thor Uvea are short

THE VALUE OF SLEEP.
Danger or Neglect tolReeton Energy by
Nightly Rest,
Thc restoration of energy, which sleep
alone can afford, is necessary for the
maintenance ot nervous vigor, and
whereas the muscular system, if overtaxed, at last refuses to work, the bnun
under similar circumstances too frequently refuses to rest.
The sufferer, instead of trying to remove or leesen the cause of his sleeplessness, comforts himself with the hope
that it will soon disappear, or else hu
recourse to alcohol, morphia, the bromides, chloral, eto.
Valuable and necessary aa these remedies often ere (I nfer especially to the
drugs), there can bo no question as to
the mischief which attends their frequent use, and then is muoh reason to
uar that their employment in the absence of any-medical authority ia largely on'the increase.
Many of tho "proprietary articles''
Not a few deaths bave bean.caused by
their use, snd in a still larger number
of cases they havs helped to produce
the fatal result.
Sleeplessness ia almost alwaya accompanied by indigestion in some one or
other ot its protean forms, and the two
conditions reaot upon and aggravate
eadh other. ■ ■
If rest cannot be obtained, and if the
Vital machine cannot be supplied with
a due amount of fuel, and, moreover,
tails to utilize that which is supplied,
mental ahd bodily collapse cannot be
itr distant The details ot the down-
Ward process vary, but the result is
much the same in all oases.
Sleeplessness and. loss of appetite
are followed by Ices of flesh and
strength, nervous irritability, alternating with depression, palpitation, and
other derangements of the heart, especially at night,-end many of those
Smptoms grouped together under the
1 term "hypochondriasis.
When this stage hu been reaohed,
"the borderlands ot insanity" an
within measurable distance, even if
they have not already beeu reaohed.—

Tho bridge Is straight, then la a chance
For life If he should win.
And with a mighty jerk he threw *
The throttle open wide—
And said a prayer-and " Lady BUS'.'
Went on her ensy ride.
Dreadful I   You might haft seen the

And splinters, tarn'from bridge had
And clamps from every Ue;
While " Lady Bess" just lew across.
And Tlm just held his breath-
While half the passengen had ewooged,
And half were sure of death.
But ere thc scared had time to fttf,
Or broken wheels to stand,

ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1487,.
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased bv a
joint stook company composed ot cittiens
cf New Westminster, to be known u the
"British Colombian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern hu been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. 'Die objeot of

Mention of the Bkitihii Comimbiak newspaper anil carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose Individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There will be ho
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value tor their money.
The Columbus will continue to be entirely independent in bath Dominion and
provinoial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement.of inch schemes a
may be conshlcred in the pnblic interest.
The conoern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the' book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. K.
Pearson, who will continue to carry It on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It Is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained In this city, and
the new company asks for pnblic patronage on the ground that it is engaged.In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Cot..
umbian be judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as ita policy is
enconilstt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all ac*

without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted aad

Special to the Columbian.
Nakaimo,May8.—Thirty-five bodies
were found this morninc. Up to noon
to-day sixteen white men hnd beon
brought to tho surface. A shovel was
found in tho mine on which Uio following wag written with chalk: "Thirteen
hours and now dying in misery.
((Signed) John Stevens." This was a
young fellow 23 years of age. The
meu were evidently conscious, thon,
13 hours after the explosion, nnd may
havo survived thut timo tivo or six
hours. They were nll found iu No. 1
level. They had corneas far as tho
half-way switch and found a cavo-in
and air bad.' Thoy then set to work
with picks and shovels and barricaded
the passage to shut out the after-damp.
Then they retraced their stops to the
air-shaft when the fire-damp caught
them and they all succumbed. They
had tried to barricade this passage
also, but had not succeeded very well.
The poor fellows had made a desperate
struggle for life, and when ull hope
was gone, aa they must have known a
terrible disaster had occurred or help
would have reached them, that plucky
young boy had left tho message quoted
above. Other messages may be found,
as it is probable some ot the meu may
have scratched a few words on their
dinner cans. The fire is now under
control, and it is hoped all tho bodies
will bo recovered within the next few
days. No more will likely be discovered to-day. Nothing can be seen on
the streets to day but people silently
and restlessly moving back and forth
between the mine and tho tow.n. All
kinds of wagons are bearing linen-
wrapped corpses to their late homes,
or in funeral processions wending their
way to the cemetery.

Tlie May-Day Festivities.
Dancing 'Round tho  Maypole—A
Tory Pleasant Brent.
"Better late than never" would
stem to be a maxim of the Hyacks,
Although over a week bat passed since
the 1st of May, during which time the
weather has been moit disagreeable,
atill, when this morning opened bright
and fair, the boys were by no means
tardy in making preparations for the
celebration of the time-honored May
Day. Much credit is due to the boys
of the fire company for their efforts in
making the festivities of the day successful. About 1:30 this afternoon
the queen, Miss Dolly Meade, and the
queen-elect. Miss May Douglas, accompanied by theit ladies in waiting,
started from tbe Hyack Hall in a carriage for the scene of the day's pleasure, whioh was in the grounds of
Bishop Sillitoe at Sapperton. They
Wen preceded by Ihe Hyack band,surrounded bythe Hyacks and followed
by a great crowd. Upon arriving at
the ground the queens were led to the
Maypole platform. Miss Dolly Meade,
the queen, then addressed the queen-
elect, Miu May Douglas, as follows:
Deab Sister: Another May Day
has dawned upon us, and my reign has
come to an end. Our loyal subjects
have done well to elect one so lovely
aa yourself to succeed me. You are
indeed well fitted both by name and
disposition to adorn our throne, and
I pray that your year of power may
be as bright and happy as mine has
been, snd I know I am speaking for
all your subjects when I say we will
try our best to make it so. My dear
sister, I now crown you Queen of May,
snd may this happy day be a typo of
your future life.
With deft fingers Miss Dollv placed
the floral crown upon her royal successor. Then the new queen thus addressed her:
, Sweet Sister.—In receiving this
crown from, you, I do so, not aa a rival, o%. successor, bnt in sisterly affection, and in duty to the choice of the
gallant Hyacks. Loving subjects, I
greet you bn this smiling May Day,
the herald of the beautiful spring.
Tour service to me will bo moro highly
prised if it brings to you real happiness and innocent pleasure. To my
grown up subjects I wish freedom from
can and to my younger ones I desire
that fun and frolic, the true signs of
the springtime, mny continuo throughout this joyous day, to give it a hearty
welcome. Let ua hie to the May
pole.
Misa May. McPhadden and Miss
Eva Insley acted as maids of honor to
Queen May, and Miss Laura Kichoff
and Miss Lizzie Austin waited on
Sueen Doll. After three cheers for
ie new queen, and the national anthem by the Hand, dancing began on
the platform. The little folks seemed
to enjoy themselves splendidly. The
weather was all that could bo wished,
although as we go to press the sky has
become dark with clouds and the
chances an we will be favored with
aome more rain befon many hours.
To-night n ball will be held in the
Drill Shed. The queens and their
younger subjects will be allowed the
use of the floor until 10 o'olock, when,
they will give way to the grown up
subjects.

Srovince on t.'.e faot that auch a means
as been provided for the restraint
and safe keeping of the criminal
classes of the province.
3. Wo visited the Royal Columbian
Hospital, and found il, so far as the
management can afford with the funds
and appliances at their command, in
its arrangements, in fair oondition,
but the conveniences for the relief
and alleviation of suffering an very
meagre, and wholly inadequate for the
requirements of an institution situated
as this is, in the principal city on the
mainland, and liable at any time to
have a large number of serious accident cases to deal with; further, we
observed the building.' itself to be in a
very dilapidated condition, and very
much out of repair, the roof leaking,
and water running down into the
wards in various places, rendering the
building totally unfit for occupation
and use as a hospital. The grand jury
therefore feel it their duty to request
your lordship to bring this matter beforo the proper authorities and urge
the great necessity existing for immediate action in regard to the construction of a hospital worthy uf the name,
and that will not at least bring discredit to the city and district as the
pntent one does.
4: The asylum was also visited, and
we have only words of praise in which
to express the pleasure wo experienced
in going through that institution, in
observing the great care and attention
bestowed on the unfortunate inmates;
tho buildings and .all arrangements
being very clean hnd perfect in every
respeot, everything apparently being
done with a'view to the present com*
fort and ultimate recovery of the in*
mates.
5. Another matter we desire to
bring before your lordship is the mil-
itary defense of the country. We
would therefore request your lordship
to cause to be brought before the notice of the authorities interested the
great benefit likely to acorue to bur
common country by the establishment
of corps of volunteers in the numerous
districts of the province and moans
for the accommodation of such corps.
We would in particular recommend
that the present facilities for drill,etc.,
in New Westminster city be increased
at the earliest possible date by the
erection of a auitablo drill shed,
armory and parade ground.
6. We would further request your
lordship thst much needed amendments be made to the act providing
for the selection of juries (both grand
and petit) also providing that grand
jurors msy be compensated in some
way for the great loss ot time and expense they are aubject to.
7. We can but express our regret
that the various roads and thoroughfares throughout the distriot are in
such- a wretched condition, and that
the government could not see their
way toward at least putting the leading
thoroughfares in a passable state of repair.
8. It is with greet sorrow we hsve
learned of the calamity that has occurred at Nanaimo, whion has caused
the loss of su msny valuable lives,
We beg through your lordship to expreu our profound sympathy with the
sufferers. We trust that NewWestminster city and district will cume for
ward promptly and assist in the alleviation of the suffering and distress
now experienced nt Nanaimo.
All of which is respectfully submit
ted for your lordship's esroful consideration.

Ihe annual report ol this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will bo found
tu another column. The facts revealed
in the accounta and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomlums which
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
the management, Thanks to the resolute
manner fa which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total incomo the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 psr cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company ts the fact that the interest
Income is sufficient to pay the death
claima-*whloh!lii e.compeny of the age of

possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of $282,190
over liabilities snd capital combined,

Bronse Is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes In this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments,- that companies
have been tor some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn,, Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles, nom experiments made by
these companies, lt has beun found that
the material will stand exposure for an
Indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronse being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, It is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined sine, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which outs the surface, hut does not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide whioh
forms on this bronse is indistructible by
the elements; It cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate It, although .the film Is so tnin as to be im*
measurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place.—Boston Journal of Commerce, Chas. J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronse

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OF " QRIP" Is to aet forth, In
In an Impnrtlnl and Independent manner, tho nasslng event*, of Canadian political oud social life. Its Cartoons spink
mom detlnltety nnd moro pleasingly than
who-o columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artlstlo style
of presenting a subject, the whole situation Is revealed ntn glance. The success
of Grip shows how woll this faot Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on the passing political events of the country lifting even
more eagerly Nought after than the chaste
and humorous lelter-preR. of the paper,—
though the latter Is count to lhatorany
similar publication on the continent.
The publishers of Grip ate making ex i
tensive Improvements for 1888,. The old
cover Is to bo discarded, nnd the journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned nnd calendered
papor,—overy number being so artistically
executed ns to compart- favorably with
the best papers on thn continent. The
advts. will be compre-med and moro systematically arranged; while similar Im
provements will bo made as to the letterpress, A now nnd handsome design will
adorn the title page; while thii Cartooni
will certainly not sutler from extensive
Improvements In tho artlstlo department.
