current Events nnd Opinions.
No more tremendous problem was
ever presented to n nation than tlmt
of the two races in tho Southern
States. Even the problem with
which England has to deal in Ireland is less desperate. Tt is brought
before us in its full magnitude and
complexity in "An Appeal to
Oiusar," tlie last work of Jud#e
Tourgeo, whose first work, "A Fool's
Errand," threw a sudden flood of
light on tlie situation in tlie South.
Judge Tourgee declares the division
of race to be tho one dominant aud
all-pervading influence in Southern
politics, us it is in Southern society,
Instead of being obliterated by slavery it seems to have become deeper
and moro hopeless than evor. Intermarriage is impossible; it is in fact
more than over banned and exe-
orated; and without intermarriage
real union can never take place.
Tlie social line lias even been drawn
with increased sharpness since the
superiority of the dominant race
has ceased and the slave has become
a pretender to equality. "From tho
cradle to tlie grave, the white life
and tho black touch each other every
hour. Yet an infinite distance separates them ever. In all this there
is no equalization, no assimilation of
rights, no reciprocity of affection.
Children may caress each other because "they are children. Betwixt
adults fewer demonstrations of affection are allowed than the master bestows upon liis dog." The bitter
and resentful recollection of slavery,
as Judge Tourgee is convinced, far
frotn dying away, is likely to gather
strength by the lapse of generations
in the breast of the negro. All attempts to And a Hue of political
cleavage other than that of race, or
to divide the mixed population into
any parties but those of blacks and
whites, have totally failed, The
whites deem themselves by the ordinance of nature stilt politically the
masters; they aro determined to
keep power and the government exclusively in their hands; and this
determination, being encountered by
a. sense of oppression equally strong
on the port of the negro, cannot fail
to lead to trouble in the end "The
negro has not forgotten either the
rights or privileges conferred upon
hint by national legislation. The
more completely he is debarred from
their exercise, the more deep and
irremovable becomes his conviction
that the whole race of the South is
his enemy." Meantime, instead of
dying out as was expected and half
hoped after emancipation, the negro
race multiplies apace. According
to statistics, on which Judge Tourgee relies, it multiplies fnr more
rapidly than the white race. On
this point he seems to have been
misled by inaccuracies in the census
owing to the confusion of the war.
But tho broad facts remain that the
negro has learned to support himself, and to support himself well;
' tlmt lie is physically strong and prolific; that the climate suits him
better than it suits the white, aud
that his life and occupation are generally healthier than those of his
rival. He also clings to his home,
and all hope of his emigration, as
well as every idea of transporting
liim to other countries, is at an end.
At an end, also, according to Judge
Tourgee, is the hope of immigration
into the South. The Southerners
do not make the immigrant welcome ; they cannot bring themselves
to believe that he is one of them;
negro labor repels white labor; and
there are more Southerners going
northwards than Northerners coming South. How then is the peril
to be conjured 1 What can avert the
conflict?,What, it may be added,
can prevent the existence at the
South of a state of society almost as
alien to tho Northern society ns
slavery itself, and hardly less sure
to be productive of political schism 1
Education, says . Judge Toui^ee,
education is tlie only remedy,
Eighty-five or ninety per cent, of
the negroes at present are illiterate,
ahd the suffrage entrusted to illiteracy is a sword in a blind man's
hand. Let Congress appropriate an
annual sum for education at the
South, and, that there may be no
malversation, pay it, not to the
States, but to the teachers. It is
to be hoped that the fund will escape
the destiny of the Indian bureau,
and be so dispensed as te prevent
"; its being another huge addition to
the mass of political corruption.
Popular education is a very good
thing, though we know now to our
cost that it is not such a panacea as
w© once supposed.    Applied to the
'South it may make the citizens of
the two races more sensible of the
nature of law and order, and less

disposed to grasp the rifle. But
will it extinguish race antipathies 1
Will it even diminish them 1 Will
not the negro, when educated, become even more keenly alive, to the
humiliation of his social position,
and learn to brood with more bitterness of soul than ever over the history of past wrongs 1 Mr. Tourgee
himself hardly seems to contemplate
the possibility of mixed schools.
Tlie group of Gulf States, in which
alone negro predominance is to lie
apprehended, are rapidly diminishing iu relativo importance, and will
soon be a ■ mere fraction of the
Union. That is the best feature of
the case.—The Week.

Green Food Tor Poultry.
Green food is fully as essential foi
('poultry in winter as in numinor. Tlieir
confinement to dry food during the
continuance of cold weather goes far
to Account fur the scarcity of ep«B nt
that teuton of the year. Fresh winter
eggs ate always in demand and bring A
good price iu every market. Hens,
like cows, should be producers ae well
as consumers during the cold mouths
of winter. Fanners, as well as fanciers, should have a supply of green
food safely stored away for the winter
use of the poultry. . Fowls are not
very particular as to the kind; thoy
readily ent celery, tops of onions, turnips, otc,; lettuce, cabbage, and apples
also are relished. If such supplies
have to bo purchased, it is cheaper to
buy one or two hundred heads of cub-
hnges of second quality, which can be
liad at a low figure in autumn or early
iu the Benson. These should be delivered with their routs, and buried up
to tho head in Band in the cellar.
Hang a head iu somo convenient place
in thu house whoro the fowls can pick
at it,— Am. Agriculturist,
Turk's St. Louis Experience.
James Turk, a guileless citizen of
Detroit, was ambling around St. Louis
the other day, when a stranger stop-
pod him, offered him a cignr aud Baid:
"You havo a frank and honest face,
nnd I appeal to you to do moa favor."
"Well, I reokon 'I will, unless you
want tomorrow money."
"Oh, no, no! You see that clothing storo over there. Well, on tho
left, as you go iu, is n counter full of
overcoats, I want one the worst way,
but the prioo is 820, and I don't want
to pay ovor $15. I could have beaten
him down, I think, except that wo
both yot mad, und I left,"
"Well, what do you want of me?"
"Simply to -ro in and offer him $15.
If ho accepts, bring the coat to me on
tho eurner below. If he refusea, you
will havo my gratitude all tlie same,"
James promptly consented, aud
when he had offered 915 for one of
thu coats the denier also promptly accepted. It was dono up in a neat
bundle and Mr. Turk carried it to the
corner for delivery and payment. Tho
other man was not there. Mr. Turk
waited half au hour—thtee-quartera—
over an hour, and ' the idea crept
through his wool that ho had beon
Bold. He returned to the clothier's
nnd asked:
"Whnt is your nskiinj price for theso
ovorcoats V
"Eight dollars."
"But I paid you $15."
"Oxaotly. Vhon a man comes in
nnd like to pay mo dot price, I vas
foolish to drive him.avay."
Mr. Turk reached home with two
overconts.

A Lucky Seat.
Tlie special correspondent of the
Buffalo Courier has discovered a Mascot which he describes as follows: During the trial of tho great grape-sugar
suit of John L. Alberger and Horace
Williams against Cicero j, Hamlin
and others, which under a change of
venue came bofore the courts of Gene-
Bee county in December, 1880, President-elect Cleveland spent ten days in
Batavia ns one of the attorneys for tho
plaintiff. Mr. Cleveland stopped nt a
local hotel, and during his:stay was
given a seat' nt one of the dining-room
tables whioh he retained at every meal.
One of the dining-room girls tuok particular pains to see that he was served
promptly and well, and whenever Mi*.
Cleveland's name has been brought before the public as a candidate she hns
been entliusinsti-' -n his support. Iu
October, 1882, wnen the adjourned
Judicial Distriot Convention was held
here, the Hon. L. L. Lewis of Buffalo,
one of the candidates for the nomination, made the hotel his headquarters
during the deadlock thnt ensued, aud
occupied the same sent at tho same
table that Gov, Cleveland had retained, and was waited upon by the same
fcirl. Th") result of the convent inn
was Judge Lewis' nomination and subsequent election. During the recent
Republican Congressional. Con ven tion
here, Landlord Collins of the- St.
James was telling Judge Sawyer ot
New Orleans, whose name was presented for nomination, of the goud
fortune of the gentleman who had occupied the seat referred to in his dining-room, and though Judge Sawyer's
chances of receiving the honor did not
seem to be great, ho was given the
chair at tho table that had seated the
other gentlemen. The days of the
convention wore away without any
perceptible improvement in Sawyers
chances, until the 577th ballot, when
the long aud acrimonious contest was
brought to a close by the selection of
Judge Sawyer, and ho has been elected by a round majority. This dining-
room girl, considering the good luok
that has attended the aspirants to
:o who have occupied the seat at
her table, lays claim to being a mascot. Good fortune has surely attended
the three gentlemen whoso mimes are
mentioned.—Rochester Union.

It ia said that plans are being
prepared for a Rhip canal from Dublin to Galway, 127 miles across
Ireland, and that the project meets
with aome encouragement. The
well known engineer Oapt. Eads
haa assisted in the scheme. There
are estimates for three different
classes of ships, as follows: For
ships of 1500 tons, §40,000,000;
for ships of 2500 tons, $60,000,000:
for ships of 5000 tons and upwards.
8100,000,000.
It seems that tlie Canadian contingent nre finding greater difficulties than were expected in ascending the rapids of the Nile, Not
only are the boats of the expedition
poorly adapted to tlie service required, but the dangers of the
rapids were underestimated, The
Canadians and Canadian Indians,
however, are accomplishing feats
wliich strike the native Egyptians
with wonder. It has been discovered that the Nilo crocodiles, which
seldom meddle with the natives,
have displayed a remarkable fondness for Canadians, and one of
them has already disappeared
tliis way.
Persons engaged in mining especially will be interested in a very
valuable discovery said to have been
made by an English mining engineer. It consists, according to report, of a process of taking gold
and silver out of ore by means of
galvanism. The procoss is very
simple. The finely crushed ore is
taken by water down over a some-
what inclined plane of wood. On
this inclined plane are a few st:i
tions, each one consisting of a copper plate wliich rests on a layer of
quicksilver. The copper plate is
connected with the negative, and
the quicksilver with the positive
pole of a battery. Now the ore is
taken down over it by the water.
Immediately the gold and silver
leave the ore to be taken up by the
quicksilver, while such metals as
sulphur, antimony, etc., are retained
on the copper plate, and the earthy
matters are taken down by the
water. Tlie quicksilver is drawn
off from time to time by an arrangement on the side, in order to take
the precious metal out of it. Tliis
is Baker's process, which costs per
ton only 81.50, while by the com
mon treatment it sometimes costs
as much as 820 per ton; at the
same time there is in the old wny
often a great loss of the precious
metals. There is said to be a loss
of only 2 per cent in the electrical process.
Onr Military Resources.
So much has been said about the
fearfully unprepared state of Great
Britain for war that some people
have begun to lose confidence in tlie
protecting power of the nation.
But there aro always two sides to a
question. In responding to the
toast of the Army and Navy at St.
Andrew's gathering last Monday
night, Capt. Peele mentioned a
number of historical facts which
show that whenever circumstances
demand energy, promptness and
pluck, there is always found iu
Britian just the men for the circumstances, A writer in the
Fortnightly Review takes a somewhat similar view, It is quite
true, he says, that we (Britain) are
not in a state of preparation to face
alone on the continent the armies
of any single great European power. But as a matter of fact we
never were during the whole period
of our greatest life. To quote
many instances would bo wearisome and useless; one example
tuny atMtnd for all. At the beginning of the Seven Years' "War during wliich England obtained the
freedom of the seas, chased France
out of America, and established
herself 6nnly in India, there wero
just three battalions in this country, and so divided were we politically tliat the Duke of Newcastle
.could not have colonels for new
ones because the patronage,"ould
bo in tlie hands *>* *»*• rival, the
Duke of Ctirtilwrlond, Tho French
were threatening invasion, and Admiral Byng caused our English
fleet to show its back to the enemy
near Minorca. It is true that continental armies were not so great
aa they are now, but the disproportion was even greater. To match
the threo English battalions, Prussia had one hundred aud fifty
thousand men nnd the allied armies
intended to act against Frederick
numbered about four hundred and
thirty thousand. Yet no one can
doubt that the support of England
wiib the one thing needful to enable
the king to struggle on through the
terrible seven years' strife. Pitt
said that he intended' to conquor
America in Germany, which meant,
as Professor Seeley has pointed out,
that "he saw how, by subsidizing
Frederick, to make France exhaust
herself in Germany, while her possessions in America passed defenceless into our hands." History repeats itself, and more unlikely
tinners may happen than that
France may now build up a colonial empire of the. second class and
see all that is valuable in it pass
hereafter into English hands. If
wo now multiply np by ten the
figures just given of the continental
armies in Frederick's time we shall
not bo far from the truth; but if
we multiply the English force by a
hundred the number will still fall
far short of the present standard
for homo defence. Exclusive of
India and all the colonics, but including the Mediterranean fortresses
and Egypt, it will bo within the
mark to put the regular army,
with its immediate reserves, at
Frederick's strength when lie began the Seven Years' War, that is,
one hundred and fifty thousand.
Roughly speaking, we may put tlie
militia at one hundred thousand,
not forgetting that the right of conscription for the militia is still extant; and we may count the volunteers at two hundred thousand, for
if some of them now in the force
would be unable to servo in war,
others would soon como to take
their places. There are then no
less than four hundred and fifty
thousand men available for defence
and of them probably 200,000
might be lawfully used, or would
readily volunteer for general service
in a European war.
naturalization laws, and other matters, the message goes into national
finances. Tlie ordinary revenues
for the fiscal year ending last June
wore $348,519,569, of which $195,-
067,489 came from customs. The
total ordinary expenditures were
$290,916,493, showing a surplus of
$57,603,396. This'is a decrease of
over $21,000,000 in the expenditure, and $54,000,000 in tho receipts. For the current fiscal year
it is estimated that there will be a
surplus of $39,000,000. The total
exports of merchandise and specie
during the year wero $807,646,920,
and the imports $705,123,955. The
exports pf specie were $67,133,383,
and tho imports $137,462,262. It
is recommended that the coinage
of silver dollars be immediately suspended. The message refers at considerable length to the army and
navy. Tho now steel cruisers lately
added to the navy, and so severely
criticised in certain quarters, receive a certificate of good character
from the president. It is also
recommended that sufficient appropriations be made for placing tho
principal maritime cities in a condition for defence in case of war.
It is proposed to make arrangements
for the better security of the Indians on the reserves. After touching upon several other points the
president formally takes leave of
the congress of the United States.

The President's Message.
President Arthur's last message
to congress has been issued. As
usual it is a long and comprehensive
document, dealing with a vast number of subjects, and encompasses a
great extent of territory. One of
tlie first matters mentioned is the
present system of electing presidents
of tlie United States. "It is of tho
greatest importance that this question be solved before conflicting
claims to the presidency shall again
distract the country, and I am persuaded that by the people at large
any of the measures of relief thus
far proposed would be preferred to
continued inaction." The relations
between the country and other nations are said to be satisfactory.
The hostilities between France and
China are said to have greatly embarrassed the U. S. relations in the
cast, and the president says the true
interpretation of the recent treaty
with China respecting the restriction of immigration is likely to require serious consideration. "It
may be seriously questioned," he
says, "whether the statute passed
at the last session does not violate
the treaty rights of certain Ohinese
who left this country with return
certificates valid under the old law,
and who now seem to be debarred
from landing from lack of the certificates required by the new."
Reference is made to the recent
purchase by the United States of a
large Chinese trading fleet, which,
it is thought, would increase the
national commerce in the east.
Respecting the Bartholdi statue of
Liberty, presented by France to tho
United States, the president says
that it is expected to reaohNew York
next May, and adds: "I suggest
that congressional action be taken
iu relation to the spirit which has
prompted this gift and in aid of the
completion of the pedestal upon
which it is to bo placed," Ho expresses his pleasure at the cordial
relations existing with Great Britain, and referred to the Nicaragua
canal project in the following language; "With the Republic of Nicaragua a treaty has been concluded
wliich authorizes the construction
by the United States of a canal,
railway and telegraph line across
Nicaraguian territory. By the
terms of this treaty sixty miles of
the river San Juan, as well as Lake
Nicaragua, an inland sea forty
miles in width, are to constitute a
part of the projected enterprise.
This covers, fa" actual canal con-
Kt.rit-cfon, seventeen miles on the
Pacific side and thirty-six miles on
the Atlantic. To tho United States,
whoso rich territory on the Pacific
is, for the ordinary purposes of commerce practically cut off from communication by water with the Atlantic ports, the political and
commercial advantages of such a
project can scarcely he ovor estimated, It is believed that when
the treaty is laid before congress
the justice and liberality of its provisions will command universal
approval at home and abroad." After referring to the international
meridian, the international exhibition, the question of copyright, the
i Grand Bazaar!

on behalf of the municipality and objected to the granting uf any license

Okanagan, Nov. 27.—Threshing is

threo machines engaged at the work,

and the interior decorations are must
attractive. A new bell presented by
Mr. Christian wus blessed and placed

Class y. District Representation
Editor Columbian. — It ha woll
known fact tbat our present system uf
representation by distriot Is open to
grave objections. For example, tliere
are conflicting interests in every district,
whioh It is simply impossible for any one
man honestly to represent. Tho result
Ib that some smooth-tongued politician
from a distance, who has no Interest in
the district, and whose only tics are his
election promises, gains the seat, and
either represents himself or tho place
where his business or profession Is located. Now, class representation Is free
from this; the fanner's interest being
the same wherever he may bo located.
The same may be said of tho merchant,
the miner, the mechanic, and tho laborer. Let each profession, then, elect its
own representatives according to its voting power, and whore a class is too weak
let it join some analogous class for eleo*
tivo purposes, Again, It is manifestly
unfair that' a man who has no stake in
the country beyond the payment of $3
into tho provincial revenue should havo
the same elective power as the man who
has thousands invested. Suppose a tax
of (10 or under to carry one vote; ovor
ten and under twenty to carry two votes,
and so on*--every ten dollars or part
thereof to carry one vote, Thore is another inatton we aro in a sense over-
represented. Twelve intelligent men
aro legally sufficient ,to decide whether a
fellow-being shall live or die. The same
number nre amply sufficient to conduct
the business of the country. This could
be easily arranged according to tho above
plan, and evory interest bo represented.

Dr. Trew's Statement.
Editor Columbian. — Over twelve
years ago I came to this provinco at tho
request of the government to assume
medical charge of tbu jail and hospital
iu this city, and at the opening of tbe
penitentiary over six years ago I wus
placed by the Dominion government in
medical charge of it. Since 1872 a good
many changes have taken place at the
hospital. Sometimes it has been under
ono, sometimes under two or three medical men at the same time. I cannot say
.that these changes have added in any
way to the benefit it lias, or should have,
been to the people. With regard to the
statement you make that the position of
medical officer to these institutions has
been eagerly sought for, I may state,
that, until I was informed by the Provincial Secretary that tbe three institutions, jail, hospital and asylum, were to
be placed under the charge of one man,
and that my services were to be dispensed
with, I was not aware that any application had ever been mado, nor did I think
that any medical man would be guilty
of acting in such au underhand manner
to obtain such a position, I think the
public will agree with mo, that if nearly
thirteen years' service, rendered, as the
Provincial Secretary admits, with "faith*
fulness and ability," does not constitute
a claim to consideration a less amount of
service will not give any claim. It is
also open to the publio to say whether
there is any economy In paying one man
£2200 and providing him with a bouse to
do, the work that formerly was done by
two or more for (1300,   Md       „
C. Nkwlaxd Tiiew.
[Dr. Trow ignores entirely the principal cause whioh has led to the change,
namely, the belief that a resident physician was necessary for tho success of the
asylum. If this belief, was founded upon a just conception of the facts, it entirely upsets the economic theory put
forward by tho Guardian and Dr. Trew.
The propriety of appointing a resident
physician at the asylum has not been
disputed.—Ed.

in cotton, tho note being given by
Cunningham to a commission merchant
to cover margins, the court charged
thnt if the transaction was a speculation in futures the note was void in
the hands of ull parties, whether innocent holders or otherwise, and the
jury found for the defendant. Judge
Honey in charging the jury held thnt
if part of tho consideration was legal
and part illegal, the legal part should

Gommerec on the Congo.
Blrlin, Nov. 17.—Prince Bismarck
in his speech at the opening of the
Congo conference on Saturday alluded
to the high, beneficent and pacifio
aims which the conference had before
it. It hod for its object the solution of
three main questions, namely free navigation with freedom of trado on the
Congo river, free navigation of the
Niger river, and the formalities of
valid annexation of territory to bo
observed in future on the continent of
Africa. Negatively the conference
would not concern itself with the present questions of sovereignty, Tho
chancellor went on to say that he hoped
the labors of the conference would
result in a further lnoreue of peace
and good will among the nations.
Mulet, the British commissioner,
echoed the sentiment expressed by
Bismarck and accepted the points
proposed as a basis for discussion, with
the following reservation: That England was willing to see the principles of free navigation, etc.,
extended to the Niger river but expected that surveillance over the exercise of thoiio principles would nut be
mndo the business of the international
body. That was thu duty and privilege
of England, as she was the chief, if not
the proprietary power on the Lower
Niger. Portugal has drawn up a memorandum to thu conference insisting on
her right to tho Congo uud declaring
that Portuguese treasury and blood
had beun freely spent to maintain order on the Congo fur thu benefit uf the
commerce uf all nations. Portugal
admits tho principle of freedom of passage along the great African rivers,
and haB no intention of establishing a
restrictive lavill'. She would merely
exact taxes frum trade sufficient to pay
the expenses of maintaining an adequate force to ansuru liberty and safety
of person und proporty.

any business iuterest as a result of administrative policy, bo long as I am
President. I intend to surround myself
with the best and broadest minds in tbe
party, aud then bend all my energies
toward making au administration that
shall at least assure every element that
the transfer of executive control from
one party to another does not menu any
serious disturbance of existing conditions." Referring to the present feeling
of unrest in business circles, Cleveland
said: "It is almost incredible to me that
there should be any feeling of uncertainty
whatever as to the future, so far as the
result of the recent oleotion is concerned.
Those who are to succeed to power by
the wiil of the people, as recently ex*
pressed, are as much interested in the
future of the United States as those who
yield it; they also have au equal stake
in prosperity and the advancement of
thd country; they are ob thoroughly
committed to the maintenance of values;
as earnestly anxious for sterling business
prosperity as their opponents, and naturally they will bo careful about pronouncing for a policy inimical to the interest of the very olass whioh, more than
any other, has thus honored us with ita
confidence. Coming into power after so
long an absence the party ought and will,
so far as the executive is concerned,
bring liberal views and good impulses
into the control of the government. It
would be unnatural for the party not to
actuated by a desire to continue in power
hy demonstrating that it deserved the
highest confidence of the people. This
it cannot do if it would unsettle business
and make factious war upon well-conceived plans of government.
"This is the view I take of the proper
position for a party just assuming the
control of tho country in a crisis like this,
and the standard by which I shall be
guided while in tho Presidential office.
If I follow it, I hope for and expect a
fair and honest response from the Republicans with whom I may havo relations,
as well as the hearty support of the members ef my own party. J feel, ef course,
that I have a great responsibility, and
approach it with a feeling of more or less
anxiety. While I know that there is no
reason whatever for this feeling of restlessness North or South, I cannot but
realize that all miuda do not see things
in the same light. What may seem of
no moment to one may be of great con-
sequence to another. Tho Democratic
party and Its servants are as much committed to a careful policy upon economic
questions as their opponents, and they
wili be as careful to act for the best interests of the country as tho Republicans
would bad they been successful. I assume, therefore, that whatever nervousness thero is now apparent coines simply
from a disturbance of a long leaso of
power, and that after whatever irritation
growing out of defeat has passed off thero
will be a better fooling all around, aud a
willingness to give the new man that
fair, honest chance that is desired, and
less would not be fair to au incoming
administration."

Gilbert Laird, St. Margaret's Hope,

by several friends to order another parcel of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil, The
last lot I got from you having been tested
ir several coses of rheumatism, has given
vclief when doctor's medicines have foiled
to have any effect. The excellent qualities of thia medicine should be mode
known, that the millions of sufferers
throughout the world may benefit by its
providential discovery."
Doctor—"You see, dear, I have
pulled my patient through, after all.
A very critical case, I can tell you."
His wife—"Yes, dear; but then you
are bo clever in your profession. Ah!
if I hud only known you five years
earlier I feel certain my firat husband
—my poor Thomas—would havo buen
saved! —Ji Pungolo.
Jos.    Beaudin,  M. D.,  Hull.   P.Q.,
writes: Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil commands a large aud increasing sale which
it richly merits. I bave always found
it exceedingly helpful; I use it in all
cases of rheumatism, as well as fractures
and dislocations. 1 made use of it myself to calm the pains of a broken leg
with dislocation of the foot, and in two
days I was entirely relieved of the pain,"
A French gentleman, who supposed
he had mastered the English language,
was sadly puzzled one day when a
friend met him and asked: "How do
you do?" "Do vott" "I mean—how
do you find yourself?'' "Sair, I never
loses myself." "But how do you
feel?" "Smooth—juBt foel me!"

Buitedfor occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room, Tliese
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing witli oil for hours. The touch is
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they are equal to the best
American pianos.
Tho organs made by tbe Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample organs are shown in tbe pavilion.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at the
end of the week. It ia arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. The organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
parlor favorite. The cases show wonderful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
The case which secured for tbe Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chaste in design and artistic in execution. The musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweet*
ness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; while visitors
oan themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the cases.
[T. R. Pearson k Co., New Westminster, are sole agents for these fine Organs

to purchase sbould not fail to communicate with them. Sample organs on view.
Prices quite as low as those of Ontario.

From tho Toronto Globe,
Perhaps the most artistic building ou
the fxhiliition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Cuuipauy
of Rowiiianvillc,   It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent  collection   of   instrument').    The
erection nf   tbis   building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meot
the itf)ulroments ot tho company, which
mil been cramped for mom in the Main
lliiililiug, whero it is impossible to judge
tliu merits of high-clnss instruments. The
•i prise displayed by tho Company in
in<ividing   suitable   quarters   on    the
mils Tor their business has been roiled.   The large number of visitors
who cull, inspect, anil purchase prov,s

i'lio presont prosperous concern had, liko
all great Institutions, its day of small
things. It liad its origin In Bowman ville

years go John Wesley, the present were-
tary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of tho manufacturing department; and W. S. Russell, superintend-
out of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed con-
trot. Sinco that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus was
glvou to the ooncern by tho admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was ndded to tho organ-manufacturing, and the establishment waa increased, until it now occupies a leading
position among Canadian undertakings.

A REMARKABLE STORY,
(OoDtlwied.)
"Oh, Mr. Rowley," cried the old
lady; "I was wrong to say you were
of little faith! It is you that are the
faithful one, and not I, I am just
nothing beside you, as I have alwaya
boen."
The old captain took his wife's old
hands in his aud nave hor a kiss upon
her faded cheek; and they smiled upon
each other, the two who had been one
for nearly sixty years. Meanwhile,
Hester, sitting by, looked on wiih
large eyes of wonder and almost
affright, She did not know what it
meant. She could not divine what it
oould be that made them differ, yet
made them agree. What harm could
they do to the house that sheltered
them, two old, good, peaceful people
who were kind to everybody? She
gazed at them with her wondering
young eyes, and did what she could to
fathom tho mystery; thon retired
from it, thinking it, perhaps, some
little fad of the old people, which sho
had no knowledge of nor means of
understanding. The best poople, Hester thought, when thoy grow old take
strange notions into their heads and
trouble themselves nbout nothing;
and of course they missed Roland.
She broke in upon them in that mo*
ment uf feeling, as soon as she dared
speak for wonder, making an effort to
amuse them and bring them baok to
their usual ways; and that effort was
uut in vain.
' It was shortly after the departure of
Roland that a new em dawned for
Hester in social life. Mrs. Algernon
Morridcw had felt from the moment
of her return from abroad that there
was a work for her to do in Redborough. It was not the same as in hor
maiden days, when she had been at
thu head of Harry's household, wonderfully enfranchised indeed, but atill
somewhat undor the awe of Aunt
Catherine. But now she was altogether independent, and nobody had
auy right to mako suggestions as to
whom she should invito or how she
should entertain to a married lady,
with an admiring husband—not to
speak of brother and sisters-in-law—
eagerly anticipating social elevation by
her means at her baok.
Ellen was not ill-natured. She was
very willing to promote tho happiness
and prosperity of others so long as
she could do so without any diminution of her own—a negative goodness
which the world at large is very well
pleased to acknowledge ns satisfactory,
And it is not at all probable that the
representations of -Harry, or the good-
humored suggestions of Algernon inspired by Harry, to the effect tliat it
would bu sublimely good of her to
take up and brighten the life of Hester, would have come to very much,
had it not at tho same time occurred
to Ellen that Hester wns the bust assistant she could have on her own sido
uf the house in the indispensable
work of making her Thursdays go,"
Rather than they should not "go" she
would Imve embraced her wi irst enemy,
hud she possessed one; und she did
not care to rely upon the Merridew
girls, feeling as she did thut sho had
condescended in entering their family,
and that they must never be allowed
to forget that they owed everything to
her and shu nothing to them. But at
the same time she required a feminine
auxiliary, a somebody to bu her right
hand and help to make everything
"go."
The result of her cogitations on this
subject was that she Bet out for the
Vernonry one nfternoon, in the littlo
Victoria, which Algernon, rather tremulous about tho cost, had set up for
her, and wliich, with tho smart coachman who far the moment condescend*
ed to be gardener too, and thu boy on
the box who was of quite a fashionable size, looked a vory imposing little
equipage. Ellen lay bad: in her littlo
carriage enveloped in hor nuw sealskin, with a little hat of tho samo
upon her head and a muff also of the
same, and her light hair looking alt
the brighter against that dark background, with bracelets enough to
mako a jingle wtterevur she went, und
which sha had to push up upon her
arm from time to time, and a violet
scent about herself and all her garments, at least thu scent which iB
called violet at Pinase nnd Lubin's,
which survod her purpose. Whon she
drove up in this state, it may be supposed what n ilut ter she made in the
afternoon atmosphere. Tho inmates
. of tho Vernonry ruehod to their windows. "It is that little doll, Ellen,
come to show off more of her finery,''
•aid one sister.
"I wonder why she comes hero when
you set her down so, Matilda," said
the other.
They kept behind the curtains, one
over tho other's shoulder, thut she
might uot see how curious they woro.
But when Ellen floated in at the veranda door and was evidently gone tu
see Mrs. John, their astonishment was
boundless. They shrugged their
shoulders and interchanged glances
with Mr. Mildmay Vernon, who, with
his newspaper in his hand, had appeared at his window.
"Did ho think she was going to sec
Aimi"1 Miss Matilda said, even wliili
addressing these satires in pantomime
to him. "What interest can ho take
in Ellon? It is just prying and curiosity, and nothing moro.
The gentleman s comments wore not
more friendly. He ohuckled as hu
saw whoro Ellen was going.
"The old cuts will think it a visit
to thero, and they will be disappointed," he said to himself, all tlie snme
shrugging liis shoulders back again to
Hill Matilda. They kopt on the
watch all the time the visit lasted, and
it wss a long ono. The sister discussed
the victoria, tho horse, the little footman, tho great fur rug which Ellen
threw off as she jumped lightly out of
the carriage. It was somewhat hard,
indeed, that a little minx like Elh»*
should havo nil these things, and her
auiiiwrs. her bettors, who would havo
enjoyed thom ao much, nono of them.
But so it always is in this unjust
world.
"I am going to begin my Then Dan-
mntes, and I want you to help ino,"
she said, abruptly. "I want you to
be my right hand—just like my sister,
You know I-enn't do everything myself. Mrs. John, you shall como too
—I never intended to leave you out;
but I want Hester to help me, for she
is the only one that osn help me, Sho
is really my cousin. Clara and Connie an only my sisters-in-law, and I
don't care to have them ahout mo iu
that position. It would bo nice for
me, and it would bo giving Hester the
best of chances. Now, Mrs, John, I
am sure you will see it in that light.
What oould be better fur a girl? AH
that she will meet will be (he best sort
of people; and she would have her
ohaMe,"
"I don't know what you menu by
l
having ray chance—und I don't wnnt j
any chanco," said Hustor in a flush of
shame and indignation; but Ellon put
her down with a wavo of her gloved
hand and arm, nil tinkling with
bangles.
"Of course you don't know anything
about it," she Baid—"an unmarried
girl! We don't want you to know.
Your mothor aud I will talk about that;
but you can understand that a nice
dance in a nice house like ours will be
something pleasant. And you would
be there uot just liko a visitor, but
line one of the family, and get a good
deal of attention, aud ub many partners as ever you liked."
"Of course. Ellen, of course," cried
Mrs. John. "1 am sure I understand
you. It would be very nice for Hester. At her age every girl likes a little gayoty, and in my position I have
never been able to give it to her. It
was very different when my husband
was nlivo—when we woro in the White
Houso. I am suro I have never
grudged it to you, but it mode a great
difference. I wus not brought up to
this sort uf thing, I had my balls
aud my parties, as many as oould be
wished, when I was Hester's ago, If
her poor papa had lived, and we had
stayed in the White House, sho would
have held a very different position. It
gives ino a littlo prick, yuu will understand, to think of Hester wanting
anybody to be kind to her; but still,
as it is so, and us you ave her relation,
I never could object. You will find
no objection from ine."
"No, I sbould think not," cried
Ellen, throwing back her warm coat.
It was at tho time when soul-skins
were rare—when they wero just "coining in1'—-and Mrs. John looked at it
with admiration. She did nut ask, as
the Miss Vornon-Ridgways did, why
this little minx should have everything; but sho remembered with a
littlo regret the days when she, too,
had everything that a young woman
could desire, and wondered, with u
little flutter at her heart, whether
when Hester married she wuuld have
a seal-skin and a viotoria, and all the
othor crowns of happiness. She looked
with something of a pathetic look at
her daughter. Ah! if sho could but
see Hestor as Ellen was!
Meanwhile Hester was elevating her
young head, as was natural, in special
scorn of tho "chance" which her cou-
siu meant to securo for hor, and in
defiance altogether of the .scheme,
which noverthelesB (for she was but
human and nineteen, and the prospect
of a dance every week took away her
breath) moved her in spite of herself.
"When I was a child," Hostor said
--"when you first came to see us,
Cousin Ellon, vou said you must seo
a great deal of me; that I must go to
your house, that you and Harry would
tako me out, that I should have a
share in your pleasures. Perhaps my
mother and you don't remember—but
I do. How I used to look out for you
every morning; how I used to watch
at. tho window, thinking they will
surely come or send, or take sonic
notice to-day. I was very young, you
know, and believed everything, and
wished so much tu drive about and
to go to parties. But you nevor
came."
"To think sho could remember all
that!'1 cried Ellen, a little abashed.
"Of course I didn't. Why, you were
only a ohild. One said so to please
you; but how can you supposo one
meant anything? What could I have
done with you then—a little thing
among lots of peoplol Why, you
wouldn't have been allowed tu cornel
It would have beon had for yuu. You
would have heard thiugs you oughtn't
to hear. You wouldn't havo let her
como, would you Mrs, John?"
"Certainly not, my dear," Baid Mrs.
John, promptly. To tell the truth,.it
was Bhe who had complained tho most,
though it was Hester who had been
must indignant. She forgot this,
however, in the now interest of tbe
momont. ' *It would never have
dono," sho said, with all sincerity.
"Yonr cousin, of cuurse, only spoke
to ploase you, Hester. I nover cuuld
have permitted you, a little thing at
your lessons, to plunge into pleasure
at thnt age,"
"Then why—''cried Hester, opoti-
iiimithed; but when she had got so far
she paused. What was the use of saying any more? She looked at thom
both with her lnrgu brown eyes, full
of light and wonder, and a little indignation and a little acorn, then stopped
and laughed, and changed the subject.
"When I go to Cousin Catherine's,'
shu said, "which I never do when I
can help it, we stand in u corner all
tho evening, my mother and I. We
aru thankful when any ono spo.iks to
us—the curate's daughters and the
Miss Roynoldses, and we - There is
never anybody to take ub in to supper.
All the Redborough people sweep past
while mamma stands waiting, and then
perhaps some gentleman who has been
duwn oncu bofore takes pity, nud says,
'Haven't yuu been down to supper,
Mrs. Vernon? Dear me! thon lot
mo take you.' You will please to remember that my mother is Mrs, Vernon, Ellon, and not Mrs. John."
"I unly Bay it fur—short," said
Ellen, apologetically; "and how can I
holp what happens at Aunt Catherine s? I dun't go in for her ways. I
don't mean to do as she does. Why
do yuu talk of Aunt Catherine tu
mo?"
"It is only to lut you soo that I will
nut bo treated so," tho girl said with
indignation. "If yuu think I will go
to your houso liko that, just becauso
you ure a relation, I won t, Ellen; and
you had better understand this beforo
we begin."
"What a spitfire it is!" said Ellen,
raising hor hand with a toss ot all hur
bracelets tu brush Hester's duwny
cheek with a playful touch. "To
think sho should put all these things
down in her book against us I I
should novor remember if it were inc.
I should be furious for the moment,
and then I should forget all about it,
Now, Hosier, you look hore. J mn
not asking ynu for your owii pleasure,
you Billy; I mn asking you to help
me. Don't you see that makes all
the difference] Yuu are nu good to
Aunt Cathorine. She doesn't need
you. She asks you only for civility.
But it stands to reason, you know,
that I can't look aftor all thu people
myself if I am to have any of the
fun. I must have some oue to help
me. Of course you will havo ovory
attention paid you; for, don't you see
you aro wanted. 1 can t got on without you. Oh, of course that makes
all the difference! I am sure your
mamma understands very well, even
if vou are too young and too silly tu
understand!"
"Yes, Hester, yuur cousin is quite
right," said Mrs. John, eagerly. Thu
poor ludy wob so anxious to securo hor
child's turnout to what sho felt would
be so manifestly for her advantage
that she wns ready to back up everything that Ellen said.
