Th. .'elite AttaM.
' Somo yean ago an English gentleman sojourning in tlie vicinity of
Glenadam made the acquaintance of
a "sma' laird" of the neighborhood
While walking through the glen one
day the Englishman said—
"Pruy, Mr. Campbell, can you
tell me why this glen is called Glon-
adam 1"
"Ou, ay," was tho reply, "I can
tell you that; but I thocht it
.was shenerally kent."
"Indeed.    Well, I am in ignorance as to the origin of the name."
I The Celt cast a pitying look on
tbe Sassenach, and then, in a tone
of deep gravity, said—
"Adam wass porn here."
He fell back a pace to enjoy the
look of amazement on the Fnglish-
man's face.
"Adam! What Adam!" asked
the stranger.
"Adam, the Adam—the fery lirst
man as wass porn into the world
alive, man."
"But, my good sir, I always understood it was in Mesopotamia our
first parents arose."
"Ooh, sir, that iss a popylar error
that hus heen redd up long ago.
Adam wasi pom here in Glenadam,
and ho wuss the lirst man that spoke
the Gaelie."
Highly amused at tho implicit
faith tho laird manifested in thit
legend, but still preserving hia
gravity, the Englishman aaid—
"Then, of course, Eve was born
here also 1"
"Na, she wasna. She cam' frae
farror North — aboot Tobermory
way."
"Then we are standing now in tho
Garden of Eden 1"
"Deet are we, sir, ant hero Adam
and Evo lifed fery happy thegither
till that nesty atliiir wi' the serpint.
They were neffer like theinel's efter
that. Ant then their auldest lad-
dio, Cain M'Adain, went to the bud,
an' wasa a snir, sair trial to his parents. He went frao bad to worse,
till wan day whan he wass workin'
in the kailyard wi' his younger Wither he up wi' his spade and brocht
the puir laddie a terrible clamhewit
on the head that kilt him doid,"
"What a trial to his parents,"
said the stranger, in a sympathetic
tono.
"Deet yc may say tat, air. The
auld wife cried the coronach ower
the bairn till she wass aa roopit as a
craw, and wass like to greet the
fery een oot o' her lieid."
"Natrally."
"Weel, sho took to the dram for
comfort like, an' her puir man bad
a terrible time o't wi' her till she
ran away wi' an auld packman they
ca'd Methusalum,"
"Methusaleli was a native of the
glen also!"
"Hooch na; he was a Paisley
body tat travelled wi' winceys o' his
ain weavin'."
"And what became of poor Eve,
Mr. Campbell I"
"Oigh, oigh, she bad an awfu' ent.
It was a line munelicht night when
she took tbo road wi' tbe packman,
an' when they got to the heido' the
glen her heart failed her, and she
turned round to gae baok to her
guidman when a' at wance she was
changed into a pillar o' saut"
Children Cryfor PitcWiCHtyii
"Reallyi Mr. Campbell, there
must be some mistake here."
"No on my side o' the roud, sir."
"But we read in Genesis that it
was Lot's wife who was so punished
for lookiiig back on the cities of tlio
plain."
" Maybe; but that will bo made n'
richt in the neist version. My ain
grandfather minded lino o' the mun-
iile suut rock hinisel'."
" And what became of this wonderful pillar 1"
•'Weel, ye see, saut wass awfu'

I'ARNELL TARES TIIK LEAD AOAIN.
London, May 26.—Mr. Pamell is
about to resume the actual direction
of political affairs in Ireland. It ia an
event of marked significance, coupled
as jt is witS the advent of the pupal
rescript. Mr, Pamell will recast his
moveim-uta uu new lines. With this
object in view, he litis been in communication with the man who is his most
important Heutentant within the Inst
few weeks. As a political engine the
"plan of campaign" has boen out of
gear, and the acknowledged leadeis,
Mr. Pamell and Mr. Davitt, not only
recognize this fact, hut uro elaborating
new modes <f vuufure to meut the
changed ami changing position of
affairs. A conflict of uny kind will
not rise between the leader and any
section of his party, for. no matter
what differences of opinion may hnve
existed on points of detail, the loyalty
and allegiance t-.i Mr. Parnell personally, have never been in the Blightent
degree weakened or diminished. The
popular acclaim has been rightly given
to men of more tirey and impulsive
temperament, but due obedience has
been reserved for Mr. Pamell himself.
Through all the variations of popular
favor for others, he is the real pivet of
the national government. Archbishop
Walsh, of Dublin, will now, undor the
altered aspect of things, use his great
authority on Mr. Parnell's side, so
that instead of facing a wing or section
of home rulers, Mr. Balfour will be at
onee confronted with the vital forces
of liberal opinion in England and Ireland under the control and management of the two great national leaders,
Gladstone and Parnell.
OLADSTOXK TALKS POLITICS.
LoNDJix, May 20.—Mr. Gladstone
addressed a large assemblage at Ha-
warden to-dny. Mr, Gladstone said
he did not believe that Mr. Bright
had initiated the movement in favor of
his son contesting the Rochdale parliamentary peat against Air. Potter. Do-
spite tbe lesson taught at Southampton the ex-premier said he feared that
the government would press the passage of the compensation clauses of Mr.
Ritchie's local government bill, and
that they would bo carried against the
conscience of the liberal dissentients,
in order to keep the government in
office, and to debar Ireland from enjoying home rule. The Irish question,
satd the speaker, is going backward in
parliament, but it is advancing outside.
llOOTll's    MUHDKRER.
Topeka, Kan., May 27.—A sunsation
was caused here to-day hy tlio escape
from the State Insane Asylum, of Boston
Corbett, who killed Wilkes Booth, the
assassin of President Lincoln. While
out for exercise with the regular patrols,
Corbett suddenly broke from the ranks
and jumped on a horse belonging to a
visitor and was away before the guards
could realise what had happened. Cor-
bett has been confined iu the aav lum for
the paal month, and during tlmt time
had been more or less violent and several
times . threatened to escape and kill the
governor and other state oflicers who had
anything to do with his incarceration.
It ii believed that he has cone to his
home, Cloud county. Corbett, while
acting as doorkeeper of the state house
of representatives a year ago, caused the
house to adjourn suddenly uy flourishing
two pistols and threatening to kill the
speaker and other mombers.
DKaOU.NCING BISHOPS.
Dubun, May. 28. ■- Meetings were

i land.
TASCOTT til'WOrtKD TO UK HEAD,
.M|[.w-u:kkk, Wib., May 28.—The

e»>jo. Tho body uf a -young man shot in
the abdomen was found in the lake on
Tuesday last, and a reporter of the
Herald found the bod$ to answer the
description of Tascott, as given by the
Chicago chief of police.
A POLITE HIM' TO THK I'OVK.
C'ufUAtiO. May 28.—Two hundred delegates of. Irish Catholic societies, at a
meeting yesterday, decided to hold a
11)080-meeting on Thursday to consider
the papal rescript. A motion was carried, without a dissenting voice, to the

PACTION   VllillT.
Paris, May 28.—During the progress of communist speeches in Pero
La Chaise cemetery,.yeaterday, a fight

before several revolver shots had been .
fired and two communists seriously
wounded.
STRANGE ADVICE.
Vienna, May 28.— Premier Tiiza .
in a speech in the Hungarian diet advised Hungarians not to take part in
the proposed exhibition at Paris for
fear tbe peace between France und
Austria should ceaae before the end of
the exhibition and tho exhibitors
should incur losses and even insult to
the national flag. Tbe speech creates
a great sensation in Vienna.

His physicians fear the worst on account
of tho patient's weakness.
A GO-AHEAD GOVERNMENT.
Winnipeg, May 28.—The local government Is advertising for proposals to
build a link from Winnipeg to Portage
La Prairie, to connect with tho Manitoba A Northwestern Railway, in order to
secure direct competition with the C. P.
U. throughout the province. It is evidently the intention of the government
to go right ahead and build the road
despite the opposition of the Canadian
Pacifio road.

THE DYING HERO. '
Washington, D.O., May 28.—Gen.
Sheridan did not leave his bed sll day
yesterday, but remained there propped
up with pillows. During the evening a
boquet of flowers and a note of sym»
pathy wore received by Mrs. Sheridan
from President Cleveland. As night
fell the general appeared to grow weaker. At 8 o'clook his condition was
pronounced critical. The general, who
realized that his end was likely to occur at any moment, expressed himself
as free from pain, and bravely faced
the approaching death. As early
morning came on the dying hero poised
into a quiet sleep, and dozed at Inter*
vali np to 9:30 this morning. At the
morning consultation physicians agreed
that the general's symptoms showed a
slight improvement. This news dispelled for the time the gloom which
hung over the household during the
night, and bright glances of hope were
exchanged among the friends assembled. The general awoke at 11:15 and
his mind was entirely dear. He recognized everyone about him. Oxygen
has been administered constantly sinoe
he awoke. It is said that his facial appearance Is but slightly changed.
1:30 p.m. The rumor of General
•Sheridan's death is without foundation.
The general has slightly rallied, al*
though them is no hope. ■ ■• §ailj) f ritish (iolumbian

Dr. Getehell, of Philadelphia, has
mad* tame remarkable discoveries
in North Carolina. While out on a
shooting expedition in a remote
part of that state he encountered a
strange olass of people who are inveterate consumers of clay. These
people, it was observed, had formed
an appetite for this kind of food
which nothing else could satisfy, and
although its effects were evidently
injurious they persisted in devouring
the destructive stuff. Even young
ohildren became so fond of the clay
that they would thrust aside the
most tempting viands and eagerly
devour it. Dr. Uotchell took some
of this material home with him for
analysis and discovered the secret
of the strange infatuation of those
who become slaves to its seductive
influence. It contained a large
percentage of arsenic, and this drug
had operated upon the people very
much in the same way as opium.
But, like opium, it is a sure poison,
and destructive to physicul development. The discovery is a curious
one, and arlbrds another illustration
of the tendency so prevalent among
all classes to cndulge in something
of a stimulating or sedative nature.
The normal condition of mnn does
not crave these things, but vicious
appetites are speedily acquired and
transmitted from one generation to
another.
Although the coming of summer
was long delayed this year, and
crops aro consequently backward,
May has been a splendid month for
vegetation. Farmers everywhere
throughout this province are looking
forward with confidence to ample
returns for their labors. Vegetables
of local growth have been finding
their way into the market for some
time, and the quantity as well as
the variety is constantly increasing.
In a week there will be abundance
of strawberries from the gardens of
this city and district. After that
we shall have new potatoes, cherries,
and then all the fruits and vegetables
in their season. T_M( probabilities
are that producers will find no difficulty in disposing of all they can
grow. The population of this province, and especially of the district
of Westminster, continues to increase rapidnr, and the demand for
all kinds of farm produce, including
fruit, is always greater than the
supply. Owners of farms and orchards and gardens ought to see that
nothing worth taking to market is
wasted, and that everything is put
up in suoh a shape as to present an
attractive appearance. It is a great
mistake to put the produots of the
farm upon the market just as they
come from the soil. A little labor
judiciously expended will make a
wonderful change, and buyers will
invariably select the best looking
stuff. The formers of this country
need have no misgivings for the future if they but exercise common
sense in the matter of growing and
preparing for market that which the
soil will produce in suoh rich
abundance.
tlm city a controlling interest in the
works. While no time should bo
lost in making definite arrangements
for a first-class systitin of water, it
would be most unwise to rush hastily into any engagements until the
whole question has been thoroughly
cinv.issed and understood. To this
end we invite those who have definite views on the subject, or practical suggestions to mako, to make
use of the columns of The Columbian. Let the question be thoroughly ventilated.

We presume the latest proposal of
the Coquitlam Water Works Co.
will come up for consideration by
the city council to night. We hope
our citizens, as well as the members
of the council, will not shut their
eyes to the urgent need for an efficient system of water works. The
city keeps pn growing steadily, and
the more it grows the more need is
there for prompt and effective action
in this matter. The present water
supply is not at all sufficient for
present needs, and it is not capable
of large extension, Many of those
who have to depend on wells find
that in the dry season their supply
gives out entirely, nnd they nre put
to great inconvenience and loss.
Moreover, well water is not safe iu
a large oity. In this oity especially
it is unsafe, because there is underlying tlie surface soil a stratum of
concrete, or hardpan, through which
the surface water cannot easily pen.
etrato. The result is that tho surface water runs along on top of tho
hard pan and enters the wells, carrying with it sometimes the germs
of deadly disease, and threatening
the health ot the city. We must
also have waters for our sewers. As
health and life are more important
than the preservation of worldly
possessions, we have mentioned these
first; but! it is also very necessary
that we should have better protection against fire. The company
maintains that the city will save in
reduced insurance rates nenrly twice
as much as it pays for the service,
and we have no reason to doubt the
accuracy of the claim. It should
not be forgotten, oitlier, thnt as the
city grows the saving on insurance
will grow correspondingly, while the
percentage of tuxes''going to the
cemparty tfill decrease. It is for
the city to determine■ wln*tlitrr the
proposal nifidfl.by itie tynter company
is such as can lie accepted in the
public interest* We havo always

SOME WONDERS OF SURGERY.
Illustrated   In  nn   Operation of Great
Uinicolty aiiij Uunjjer.
A correspondent descri'desiu a graphic
manner an operation performed at the
City Hospital, Boston, by I)r. Cheever.
The patient wasa man nbout i'i years,
who .was-Hufferinfi from u malignant
growth in the front part of the upper jaw.
He was placed before the ulnss In a surgical elinir, ua it was necessary thnt be
should In-in a Bitting position. The chair
lias an adjustable back nnd hend rest, nnd
is provided with straps which bold the
patient in place, and with wristbands
whicli confine the bands.
. On account of the location of the malady It wns of course impossible to etherize the patient and to operate at the same
time. Tho effects of ether, remain for
several minutes, and by tho Alternate
work of the surgeon and uso of tho ether
coiio tho operation was completed without pain to the patient.
There was very little external manlfe*-
titlonsof tho trouble, only a rather no*
Uceabie prominence of the upper jaw.
Dr. Cheever first severed the upper lip
vertically to the nose. From cut I Ing Hint
to ono side and then tbe other, ho
made incisions out and up diagonally
part way across each cheek. The-severed upper lip und part of the cheek was
then dissected up from the bone un each
side, thus uncoveriug a large section of
the upper jaw. It (was necessary to uncover the bone a little above this point,
and it was done by cutting underneath
tbe lower part of the nose and lifting up
thnt organ. - •
Theu began tho work of removing tho
diseased bone. Two or three teeth ou eaeh
side were extracted. With a small saw
the surgeon cut through tbe bone from
right to left, at a point behind where tho
lower part of the nose belonged. Tbo
jawbone was then cut vertically on each
side with.a pair of bono forceps, at a
point Just back of where the eye teeth had
been located, and tbe diseased portion was
severed. Thooperatiou involved removing n large portion of the root of ths
mouth in front,.and what Is perhaps tbo
most prominent bone in the faco.
Liko nearly all operations about tho
head—which Is full of blood vessels—tho
operation had been attended wltb a great
deal of hemorrhaget but the patien. hod
borne tt well.
Tbe freo incisions that had been made
were closed up so deftly that scarcely a
trace of tbem remained, and Dr. Cheev<v
Bald the deformity might be almost overcome by wearing a plate In tbe mouth,, on
tho plan of ono made for false teeth.
Guided by a Dream.
Sir Josiab Mason, on tbe eve of the St
Leger, dreamed that a telegraph boy
brought Min n message-which, on opening,
he found to contain the names of three
horses as first, second and third iu the
great race.
When be awoke he distinctly remembered the dream, and even tbo names of
the horses Ho was much Impressed, and,
though not accustomed to make bets, ho
resolved to put his vision to the test.
He accordingly backed thu first on tho
list with all his available.money, which
was not much. It won. Not only so,
bait the other two horses enmo in exactly
as tbey had been prefigured to him in his
dreara.—London Times.
If ow To Remove A Tight Flnger-Rlng.
Tho other day an old lady came to me
with the request to saw a ring from one
of her fingers, ltwas her wedding ring,
which sbe bad never had off since sho was
married, forty-five years before, and sbe
was delighted to hear that 1 could remove
it without cutting lt.
I wound tbe finger round from tbo top
downward with flat rubber braid, which
seemed to push the flesh down to tbe bone.
Her hand was then held above ber head
for a few moments. Then the bandage
was quickly taken off and rewound on the
finger.1
After repeating this operation three
times I was able.to remove the ring with
easo.-Jeweller's Weekly.

As a remedy for Whooping Cough,

consider this preparation tho most efficacious of all the medicines which bave

Pectoral. TbU preparation relieves tho
difficulty ot breathing and invariably
cures tiio complaint.—David G. Storks,

I havo used Ayer'a Chorry Pectoral
In my family fOf; many years, and

Of the Derville Musical Company,
which plays nt Herring's opera houso
to-morrow night, the News-Advertiser
says:—Last evening the company gave
another of their pleasing entertainments at Hart's opera house. The performance of the Derville Family,
especially that of tho youngsters, was
very good, their rendition of tho burlesque on tho Salvation Army being
extremely laughable and being encored
again and again. The cornet playing
of Muster Eddie Dovvillo was something wonderful for a hoy, gaining
great applause. Tho remainder of the
compnny in their specialties were vory
good, the performance being wound
up with an Irish farce which kept the
audienco in roars <>f laughter. The
company, by special request, will give
a farewell performance to-morrow evening*      j-

The steamer Barbara Boscowitu arrived from Port Simpson uud way
ports thia morning. The passengers
wero Mr. W. B. Anderson and wife,
Mra. Fairbrother and two Indian prisoners sentenced to threo months for
breaking into a store kept by an Indian. The prisoners were tried by
Judge Wootton at Metlakahtla. Whilst
under arrest they tan away from an
Indian constable and were re-arrested
by Mr. Anderson whilst making their
way up the Skeena river. They wero
committed for trial for breaking away
from the Indian constable.
A large number of Indians from Mr.
Duncan's new station at Port Chester
returned to the Skeena and are working at the canneries. They stated to
our informant that the new settlement
was not up to their expectations, and
that a majority of the Indians will
leave the "land of the brave" and return to their old homes.
Two more Indians were murdered at
the forks of tlie Skeena, about GO miles
above Hazleton, by tho three men who
are at present at large and beiug
searched for by the party of specials
sent from this eity. Mr. O. Todd is
in charge of the fivo specials.—Timet.
Well none Jonnle!
Yesterday afternoon a French-Canadian, about 30 yeur-j of age, while
bathing in the Brunette river attempted to cross to the other side at a point
where the water was rather deep, and
out of the bathers depth. The Frenchman wus unablo to swim, and on
reaching thu deep spot sank immediately. When he came to the aurfaoe
he gave a gasp that announced to the
bystanders he wa * drowning, and when
he appeared the second timo he throw
up his hands aud sunk like a atone.
Master Jounie Wise, who happened to
be near the spot and saw tho occurence,
immediately dived down and grasped
the man by the hair of tho head and
attempted to pull him to tbe surface.
Tho Frenchman caught hold of Jon-
nic's hands and it wns not without a
severo struggle he managed to break
away and teach tha surface for »
mouthful of very iioooasary nir. Ho
then dived again uud tliU - timo tho
Frenchman seized him by the foot
and by this means .fouim* m-mnged to
tow him ashore. After ii little rolling
and squeezing the almost dead man
waa brought to sensibility again, and
in the course of half an hour he was
ablo to mako his wny home. Jonnio
Wise deserves tho highest praise for
tho plucky nnd successful efforts ho
mnde to rescue the drowning man.
There are not mail/ hoys of Junuio's
sge (11) who would be cool mrl bravo
enough to not as ho did under the circumstances.

A Hot Chase.
This nfternoon Mr. McTiernan was
paying nn official visit to the Indians
camped on tho bluff above Front st.,
and whilo Bitting in one ot the tents
a white man entered und sat down.
On being asked what ho wanted there,
the man said ho had spent last night
in the tent and was going to do the
same to-night. He was ordered to
leave immediately, and as ho was making his exit Mr. McTiernan caught
sight of a whisky bottle in his pocket
which he had evidently brought for
the purpose uf giving to the klootch-
men. To nn Indian present Mr. McTiernan gave orders to follow and capture the man, who, seeing himself
chased, started off nt full speed with
the Indian close at his heels. The two
ran about an even pace but it was evi*
dent tho whitemaii would lose in tho
long run, ao, stopping for a second, ho
pulled off his boots und after throwing
them in his pursuer's face started forward again and finally made his escape.
Mr, McTiernan intends making nn example of any white roan he finds frequenting the Indian camp.
