malady was overcome by treatment
with chloral, and the experimenter,
Dr. JBrown Hequard, reasons from

long been collecting altars, priests'
robes, and other objects relating to
religious ceremonies; and these have
been presented to Paris on condition
that a suitable building bo provided,
which has been done.
Occultationsof stars by the planets
are extremely rare, but Dr. A. Ber-
berich, of Berlin, believes observations of them would be very important, throwing light on the extent
and density of planetary atmospheres, and in the oases of Mars and
Venus affording a means for the determination of parallax and diameter.
Experiments have been made in
transplanting the beautiful Alpine
Edelweiss into the mountains of
Bohemia and other places. In its
new homes the plant seems to be
changing its character, and in the
mountains of upper Austria it has
become transformed! nto a new
species, bearing red dowers instead
of the beautiful ermine-like white
blooms.
The mean height of the land above
sea-level, according to Mr. John
Murray, is 2250 feet; and the mean
depth of the ocean is 12,480 feet.
Only two per cent of the sea is included inside a depth of 500 fathoms,
while 77 per cent, lies between 500
and 3000 fathoms. If the land
were tilled into the hollows,1 the sea
would roll over the earth's crust to a
uniform depth of two miles,
Cabby the Babiks Right.—A
Frenoh physician, Dr. Felts, mentions a curious apparent cause of
left-handedness. One child in a
certain family was left-handed, and
the second appeared to be so at the
age of one year. It was then learn
ed that the mother always carried
her children on her left arm. She
was advised to change, and, held on
her other arm, the infant, having its
right hand free, to grasp objects, soon
became right-handed.
Stellar Parallax,—In determining tbe distances, angular measurements tre raadef at intervals of six
months, the parallax being the up
parent change of position which results from shifting the point of view
about 183,000,000 miles, tho diameter of the earth's orbit. Even
with this immense base-line, the
direction in which the stars aro
seen is scarcely altered. The parallax of about a dozen stars, varying
between 0.919 sop. and 0.046 sec,
has now been determined. The
nearest star to ns is the Alpha Oen-
tauri, distant about 20,496,000,000
miles. The average distance of
first magnitude stars is probably
several times as great as this.
ELECTniC POWER   FROM   OoAL.—
Tire direct conversion of heat into
electric work is a problem that continues to tax the ingenuity of electricians. What seems to be the
most promising attempt at solution
yet made is a new thermo-magnetic
generator and motor devised by M.
Monges, of the Hague. Like the
recent pyro-magnetic dynamo of Edison, it depends upon the fact that
the magnetic metals lose their
magnetic power when heated. It
claims several important advantages, however, the ohief being that
the necessary alternations of heating
and cooling are given automatically,
and that the cores of the armature
coils are relieved from ohanges of
temperature.
MATHF.MATICS AND   ARITHMETIC.
—Like most ordinary mortals,
mathematicians are inclined to
shirk dealings with figures. Even
Newton, tbe great master of the
most abstruso calculations, could
not, we are told, cast up a sum in
addition; and the worka of M. Stas,
said to have never had an equal in
exactitude, have been found to contain an astonishing Lumber of arithmetical slips. Prof. Huxley has
given the weight of air on a square
mile as about 590,129,971,200 lbs.,
containing not less than 3,081,870,-
106 lbs. of carbonic acid, in which
is 371,475 tons of carbon. The
renl quantities, as figured by Mr.
Sydney Lupton, are 59,133,431,808
lbs. of nir, 31,464,899 lbs. of car
boniir acid, and 375,227 tons of carbon. Another writer has proven
the water under a westerly equatorial current to be twelve por cent,
lighter than under an easterly equatorial current, this false result being
based on an arithmetical error.
ANOTHER GIGANTIC   COMBINATION.
Chicaoo, Feb. 20.—A plan is under
consideration by the general managers
of the western railroads for the formation of a gigantic trust. It is proposed
to elect a chairman for the trust and a
board of control consisting bf one representative from each member of this
trust. This board control is to have
entire supervision of the interests of
the various roads. The rate making
power is to be lodged with it, and all
changes in rates and idl questions pertaining to competition in business are
to be adjudicated by the committe.
.    THE COREAN ARMV.
San Francisoo, Feb. 20.—General
W. H. Dye and Ool. E.H. Oummines,
of Washington, and Major J. G. Lee,
of Philadelphia, who have been delegated by the U. S. Government to
proceed to Corea and reorganise her
armies, arrived in this city yesterday.
THE   RAILROAD   TRUST.
Chicaoo, Feb. 20.—The aggregate
capitalization of the trust would be
be much larger than that of the roads
involved in the present rate war. The
capitalization of tbe latter is said to be
$l,50O,0O0,(X)0butin the comprehensive
trust, which financiers have outlined,
the capitalization of the roads included
would amount up to the astounding
total of fully {2,500,000,000..
A OENEROUS   OUT.
Kbaotno, Fa., Feb. 20.—President
Corbin has sent a check for twenty
thousand dollars to such miners as msy
need assistance. It is doubtfull if the
men will accept the offer.
A TERRIBLE STATE   OF AFFAIRS IN
HAVANA.
Kev West, Feb. 20.—The LaLueha
in referring to crime in Havana says
thnt since the first of January they
have treated, in the ambulance hospital
of the oity, fifty six persons who were
wounded with tiro arms, knives, etc.,
and that ten persons were murdered
during the same time. The mail wagon that runs from Braceles to Sancto
Spiritus was stopped by six armed
men a few days ago. Tho driver was
killed, the mail robbed and the team
stolen.
KALAKAUA WINS—BURNED AT SEA.
San Francisco, Feb. 20.—Advices
from Honolulu by the steamer Alameda state that the supreme court on
the sixth of Februaty decided that
under the constitution of 1887 the
king's right of veto is a personal one,
and. that he is not required to consult
his cabinet in eiercismg that right
The Alameda brought details of the
burning of the American ship John F.
Berry. Only 14 out of a total of twenty
live souls, comprising the ships crew,
arrived safely on the Australian coast.
Capt. Watts who was part owner of
the ship said he left Philadelphia on
October second with a cargo of refined
petroleum for Japan. On tho ninety
ninth day out, December ninth, smoke
was found to be issuing from the fore
part of the vessel, The decks burst

H. Lannon and Dnniel Mahoney became involved in a dispute, it is snid,
over n woman, in a saloon on the oorner of Fourth nnd Everett streets.

A  TERRIBLE  TRAGEDY.
St. Louis, Feb. 20.—List eveninjj

two cousins, met in the parlor of Bertha Simons, whom they both have
been paying attention to. Grote pulled
out a revolver, and thrusting it against
Behren's head, fired, and the unfortunate lover fell down on the floor. Th*
girl ran screaming out of the room.
Grote calmly put away his revolver
and gave himself up to tbe police. The
cousins belong to one of the best families in the city.
THIS AFTEKNOOJf'S DESPATCHES.
A VALUABLE   DISCOVERY.
Athens, Feb 20.— A highly important discovery has been made in the
Acropolis. Excavations have beet
going on for some time'past at the
south eastern eornerof the Parthenon,
and workmen, on Saturday, came upon
large pieces of sculpture which, when
brought to light, proved to be the
head of amalestatueofheroicaize. The
stone is porous and the fragment is behoved to be the oldest yet discovered
in the acropolis. The hend is that of
a Triton, and there are indications that
it belonged to a Serpentine body
covered with scales and ending in t
fish's tail. The latter fragment waa
found a few days ago. It is possible
that these fragments belong to one of
the two missing marine, figures which
formerly occupied positions in the extreme angles of the eastern pediment
of Parthenon, and on whioh tomes of
learned conjecture have been written.
READ Dt SECRET.
Washinoton, Feb; 20.—The senate
has received a copy of tho treaty drawn
up by the fishery conference. It will
be read in secret session this afternoon.
Senator Sherman is now closeted with
the executive clerk and is reading the
president's message which recommends
that the treaty be made public.
A TERRIBLE OYCLONE.
Chicago, Feb. 20.—A terrific cyclone struck Mount Vernon, Illinois,
yesterday and 38 persons were killed
and over 300 seriously injured, many
very badly. 337 houses were destroyed, burned and damaged.
THE   CROWN FRINOE.
London, Feb. 20.—As the condition,,,
of the German Crown Prince becomes
more serious the bulletins grow more ;i.
meagre and non-committal. No definite idea of the ac'tualr-stale of the* disease can be obtained. Special despatches to London, Vienna and,, Berlin
newspapers are inclined to be exaggerated and cannot be trusted. The most
reliable information is derived from
private telegrams to German bankers,
and they any there is no hope of the
recovery of tho Crown Prince. A pri-
vate telegram from San Remo sent by
a person likely to be well informed
says that in spite of what is done His
Imperial highness makes no progress
and in his case, not to improve is dangerous. New complications of disease
are feared, and the physicians and
medical experts are' puzzled and do not
know what to do or say. A report hu
reached London that Dr. Msokemsie is
nut satisfied with the tube which Dr.
Bramman inserted in the Prince's
throat when he performed the operation of tracheotomy, because it produces irritation and adds to the irritation of larynx.
THE CYCLONE.
St. Louis, Feb. 20.—Au eyewitness
who saw the cyolone at Mt. Vernon
describes it thus: "I beheld a fearful black cloud coming from the northwest in the shape of a large inverted
cone bouncing up and down through
the air with wonderful and frightful
speed. The wind in our immediate
vicinity was blowing with most incredible velocity, men and womon in tha
streets were blown to the ground. At
the moment the whirling cloud arrived
at the town it could be seen dipping
down here and there tearing off whole
house roofs."
a plain question.
London, Feb. 20.—The Slandoitf
this morning asks why, with all her
friends, should Austria yield to Russian threats. If Russia reopens the
Bulgarian question the result will be *
rebuff nnd porhaps war.
GETTING BACK TO  WORK.
Pi'iLtPELrHiA, Feb. 20.—The Reading coal and iron company are reported
to have 39 collieries in operation this
morning, the entire number except 6.
2000 LIVES LOST.
London, Feb. 20.—An earthquake

Before T. O. Atkinson, P.M
Henry, a gay and festive young siwash, managed to procure enough of
tho bewildering fire water to quench a
terrible thirst that had been annoying
him for a few weeks back. After drinking the beverage Henry felt slightly
elevated and proceeded to give many
lively demonstrations of his agility and
general suppleness, but unfortunately
in making one of his back hand springs
ho tumbled into tho arms of one of our
peace guardians who continued the

Faoosb Out.—None but those who
have becomo fagged out know what a
depressed, miserable feeling it ll. All
strength is gone, and despondency has
takon hold of the sufferers. They feel
as tliough there is nothing to live for.
There, however, is a cure—one box of

..' req1 II.'I'I I fail]) $ritwh (Mttmbian
Monday Evening, Feb. 30, lass.
Mr. Higgins has introduced into
tho legislature n bill to amend the
lego I professions act. As the law
stands now a banister or solicitor
coming from another province or
state with the intention of practicing in this provinco must first riside
within tho province for twelvo
months. The amendment proposes
that a barrister or solicitor iu good
standing and of good character from
any part ofthe cinpiro mny be admitted to practice in this provinco,
provided the provinco from which
be comes will grant a similar privilege to lawyers from British Columbia. He must also give two months1
notice of his intention to npply for
admission as barrister or solicitor,
and must also pass an examination
by a local board with respect to his
knowledge of tho laws of Canada
and British Columbia, and tho practice of the provincial courts. We
nre inclined to think this amendment ought to pass.
Dr. Watt, of Cariboo, states in
a letter to the Colonist that a petition is being circulated in the mining regions asking tho government
to establish a custom stamp mill,
smelter, and chlorinating works in
the district. Tho opinion has always prevailed that some day the
quartz ledges of Cariboo will afford
profitable employment to great numbers of people, and will become a
source of groat wealth to the province. But hitherto it has been
found exceedingly difficult to enlist
capital in this enterprise. Wo are
inclined to think it would be wise
policy on the part of the government
to comply with the prayer of tho
petition. Our gold mines ought to
produce vastly moro wealth than
they have been doing, and if once it
is demonstrated by practical results
that the quartz ledges nre profitable,
capital for thoir development will
not be hard to find. The government works would probably become
very soon a source of considerable
revenue to the provincial treasury.
We are informed that the friends
of Mr. E. C. Baker, M. P., of Victoria, are making uso of nil tire influence they call bring to bear upon
Sir John Macdonald to secure his
appointment to tho senatorship
made vacant by the resignation of
Senator Nelson, now lieut.-governor.
We scarcely think the effort will
succeed. British Columbia is on-
titled to three representatives in the
upper house, of whom two belong to
the mainland and one to the islnnd.
ThiB arrangement was tho best distribution that could be made. The
mainland being vastly greater than
the island in extent, resources and
population, was undoubtedly entitled to a majority of senators, and so.
it was arranged at the time of union.
But if Mr. Baker, or any other resident of Vancouver Island, should
succeed Senator Nelson, the mainland will have the best of reasons
for protesting, and will protest, we
are assured, in a very emphatio
way. So far as we know Mr. Baker
has no interest whatever on the
mainland; and if he has an interest
here, he is nevertheless in every
sense a Victorian. Under these
circumstances he would not bo accepted by the people of the mainland as their representative. We
hope those who have influence with
the federal government will exercise
it now and intimate plainly that
suob an appointment would be re
ceived with very unmistakable dissatisfaction. The federal parliament will meet shortly, and it is
quite time an appointment was
made te fill the vacant senatorship;
but we don't want any Vancouver
Islander to represent us.
A gentleman who has resided at
Vancouver ever since it became a
place of note, and who holds a position which gives him opportunities
for Acquiring information that is
not open to the public, informed us
the other day thnt lie is convinced
the rush to this province during the
coming summer will be unprecedented. Not long ago this gentleman
received a call from two New Zeal-
anders who had a letter of introduction, and in conversation they
gave it as their opinion that at least
one thousand persons would oome
from New Zealand to British Columbia this season. People are already coming in large numbers overy
day. Some are staying in the province, while others (and not a fow)
are drifting elsewhere—to California, and back to tho placo whonce
they came. From many quarters
ve hear similar reports whioh lead
ua to expect that the resources of
the provinoe will he- greatly taxed
to supply occupations for the coming people. Not that our resources
are few or unimportant. On tho
contrary, they are vast and varied,
and sufficient for a population equal
to the present population of the
whole Dominion; but most of them
are atill undeveloped, and it will require the expenditure of considerable
labor and capital in some cases to
mako them available. What British
Columbia most needs ia capital and
population, and men of enterprise
who will undertake the development
of the reiourcei whioh nature has
io richly provided. There is here a
magnificent field for enterprise, and
those who tako possession of it may
reap an abundant wward.

'• We think it a great help to keep stored
in our pantry n quanity of prepared flour,
rendy for the. quick making of cake,
dougmita. fritters or bU'uit, should company unexpectedly nrrivo near the menl
Jiour, or, we, ut thu last moment, be re-
1 .jucfited to furnish h tempting loof of cake
ior plate of crullers for eome entertain-
'j incut. .
, Against Btich emergencies we weigh
Into an empty, (.lean barrel, twenty-live
pounds of the best Hour we can obtain,
< tuid fift into it one package of Hosford's
i;lirend preparation.
Next, wo take a long handled spoon
md stir the flour till the preparation in
throughly whisked amongst the flour.
, Then we twice sift the contents of the
, burro! and pack away from air and dust
* its closely as possible.
When a cake is wanted, or we nro in
immediate need of "company" biscuit,
i white and featlmry, we have only to
[measure cream und sugar, whisk up our
Eecgsaiid pop iu spices und fruit; or, to
simply measure hwc'* 1 milk, if biscuit,
fonly," aro wanted, and und Hour till the
dough is of thonget texture.   81ncu the
\ introduction of this pivparcd flour in our
p.intry, wo huve our cakes stirred and

measure and free of lumps, cream of tarter, or acid and soda and measure and

"t ■•'.Cider cup Is very popular; but cider
varies greatly in its quality, some being
'so sweet as to require no sugar, like the
.American champagne cider, to which it
seems quite uniteies-wry to add anything
but a bottle of sodu water to render it
perfect. Hard cider, however, demands
some additions to make "cup" palatable.
To to this the following may be reeom-
•*inended: A quart of cider, "a hulf pound
of lump sugar, a tublespuonful of marmalade; let it stand mill tiiwit-ti'iui it
off;   add a bottle of so.la witter and
(flowers of the'boraire-ruunvned iu tho
■'old saw for being a giver ot courago.
Some housewives may prefer to steer
■tear of even the comparatively small
: amount of alcohol that is contained in the
above "cups," arid for them we will add
■n feWiSttmmer drih'rs compounded witli-
out this questionable elemimt. Lemonade : Rub the rinds of the lemons with
sugar, put this into a jug with a little
wator, then sqtiooxe the lemons very th'or-
t,
oughly, even pressing the aoft pulp, but.
•arefully excluding the pips. Add half
the quantity of water you intend to use
for the whole jugful, and let tbe sugar
lissolve thoroughly. Just before serving
add one or two bottles of aerated lemonade.
i Apple drink: Slice somo rather sour
apples and pour boiling water on them.
Tour off when cold, strain, add lump
sugar and a little lemon peel.
ORANGE MERINGUE.
The following recipe was obtained from
■me of the foremost French chefs, and
needs no commendation. The ingredients

pound of sugar, live cups of water, three
ounces of cornstarch, one ounce of butter, the yolks of ten eggs. Grate thu
rinds, and squeeze the juice of the oran-
«?b and lemons into we* ilteV; ;then
ring it to a boil, and the corn-starch ahd
■sugar, lastly the butter and beaten yolks
■if eggs, Stir constantly over the fire till
it begins to thicken, then pour into a
.-ell-buttered pudding dish; bake fifteen
ninutes in a quick oven, then frost with
i whites of live eggs; then sprinkle the
,i with candied orange peel and pre-
'-served citron chopped nnclj', and brown

Franc'.--. Palms'<;r:tUtude,
The world knows Utile of the inner lives
of even the most conspicuous men. The late
Francis Palms was generally regarded aa
superlatively close. .Many thought him
hard, miserly, pitiless—his sole object in life
aeen inula tion of money nud his recreation
in inventintr of methods whereby to lessen
the cost of living.
■ Uii-'iu'stionii.-ly he waa anything but a
riotous liver, nntl there is none to dispute hiB
willingness to see his millions multiply; but
that he was heartless, cruel, grasping, and
relentless ia not true. The relation of one
incident in his money-jjetting life will show
that beneath his glittering nnd cold exterior
bent a responsive and grateful heart.
When he came to Detroit, n young man In
quest of employ men tt '10 found a friend in
one of Detioit's most prominent inhabitants.
Mr. I'id ms became n book-keeper, On quitting that employment lie drifted into a pine
land deal, Without large capital he soon
found himself between tiic upper and nether
millstones, where he wns like to be ground
tine. Then his friend caught him, so to sny,
liy the hnir of the head nml snatched him
from financial destruction—cheated the millstones of tlieir grist nud sent Ihe young
speculator spinning up the hill of fortune,
Years afterward, when [-Yam-is Palms had
become known far and wide as the richest
in nn in Michigan nnd his friend had drifted
from the anchorage into the whirlpool of
commercial danger, the former found his opportunity nud Ins heart nnd "went on'' the
old merchant's paper fi>r*'_>O0,O0i>.
An acquaintance of Palms met him one
day, warned him that tlie maker of that
paper was in a slinky condition and counseled him to get from under with all possible
haste,
"As near as I can figure it," said the acquaintance, "you are in for about $100,000."
"Well," said Palms, calmly disdaining to
cornet the misapprehension ns to the sum of
his Indorsements, "my name is good, I sup*
pose ?"
"Why—oh, certainly, Mr. Palms, by all
means. I merely wanted to give you a friend*
ly hint."
Palms mnde no reply, but the deep-down
kindly heart of the man—to say nothing of
his commercial sagacity and his practical
sense in dealing with money problems—was
shown by Inter developments. The friend
died with Francis Palms still his endorser
for $200,1)110. The estate of the once apparently invincible oh! merchant tottered on the
brink ot ruin. The executors held a serious
consultation with the creditor whom they, in
common with ihe general community, looked
upon as a Shylock whom nothing could move
from his firm purpose to have his pound of
flesh. They said lo him in substance, "Mr.
Palms, you practically own this estate! On
what terms shall wc turn it over to you?"
"Hold on, gentlemen," wns the response.
"Uo slow and let us see what is the best
thing to he done. Ah, to be sure. Go back,
gentlemen; go back to the widow of my old
friend and assure her that I shall not press
my claim. You arc sensible men, business
men, honest men, I'm sure, and want to do
everything for the good of your trust. Dispose of your assets ou the'most advantageous terms you can. That done—and you
must lake plenty time;  mind gentlemen,
filcnty lime— you can not only pay me, but
eave the widow very comfortable indeed.
Thus encouraged, the faithful executors
set to work with new zeal. In time they
steered llie bark into a snug harbor, paid oil
every dollar that stood against the estate and
left the widow, as Palms declared they could,
"very comfortable indeed."—Free Press.
Zlemnrknblo Watch Dial.
A gentleman connected with the Illinois
Watch Company hns a wonderfully curious
watch dial, Inslend of the Roman numerals
to denote the hours, there are eleven small
but very distinct silhouette figures representing a man out with his dogs for a days
sport. At 7 o'clock he is seen starting out
with his gun and doc; at 8 o'clock he makes
ashot; ut 0 o'clock he has a sandhill crane
which measures as long as himself; at 10
o'clock tbe man nnd his dog are seared at the
sight of a jack-rabbit, whieh is sitting upon
his hind legs with tils long ears raised above
the bushes! at 11 o'clock* tlie hunter takes
a drink, and while iu his attitude the dog sits
iu front of his master, with his nose pointing
directly at the flask; nt 12 o'clock the
sportsman is seen sitting on a stump, and Is
eating a lunch; the dog is eyeing tne piece
ol bread which the hunter has in his ban?.
At 1 o'clock he starts out to fish tho rest of
the day, aud so he takes his dog and fishing
tackle, and goes to the water; at 2 o'clock
tne dog, which is behind his master, has
been caught with Ihe hook by an attempt to
throw in his line; at 3 o'clock he and the
dog arc all straightened out again and the
line is in the water; he has both hands on
the pole, and his foot braced on a stump by
the water's edge as though he had a tremendous bite; nt -t o'clock the man has got
a big Iish on his hue, -which has pulled him
oil' his feet, and he falls on the dog and
nud doubles him all up, but the man is holding fast to tho pole, which is bent almost
double; at 5 o'clock he is all straightened
out again; his pole is thrown across his
shoulder, and with his fish in the other hand
lie slnrts out for home, the dog following behind with hts head hanging down, being
tired out. The man's name is also painted
In the center of the dial in rustic letters.
This ilial re Hods a great deal of credit upon
the artist, Mr. Charles Geyer. The figure VI

The Power of JUlesce.
A pity that so few people understand the
full eli'ect of well-timed silence! How
eloquent it is 1 Acquiescence, contradiction,
deference, disdain, embarrassment, and awe,
may all be expressed by Baying nothing.
Should you hear an assertion you deem false,
mnde by some one nf whose veracity politeness may withhold you from openly declaring your doubt, you denote a dillcrence of
opinion by remaining silent. Arc you receiving a reprimand from n superior? You
mark your respect by nn attentive silence.
Are you compelled to listen to the frivolous
conversation of a fop? You signify your
opinioa of his loquacity with contemptuous
Kth-ncu. How much domestic strife might
have been prevented, how often miuht tho
quarrel which by mutual aggravation has
perhaps terminated In bloodshed havo been
checked iu the commencement by judicious
silence? Thoso persons only who have ex*
perieneed them arc aware of tha beneficial
effects of that forbearance, which, to the exasperating threat, the malicious sneer, orthe
>unjustly imputed culpability, sBoll never
answer a word. A soft answer tnrneth away
wrath; but sometimes erring humanity can*
not give this soft answer iu moments of Irritation. In such cases there stands the fortress of silence, with doors wide open, as a
refuge for tho tired spirit until calmer
moments come. Think of this seriously, you
who glory in "having tho Inst word."
"Wherefore, my beloved brethren, be swift
to hear, slow to speak, alow to wrath."
A Cheating mh Dealer.
They were standing In tho old market-
house back of tbe Contral Station,
watching the dealor sell out his lost
fish.
"Oood Heavens," said A to Tt, "what a
cheat thnt fish-dealer is. I have boon
Wiitt'hlng him for half an hour."
"1 'ow's tlmt ? I didn't notico anything
peculiar."
■'lon't you see that this man Is charging for the scales every tlmo ho weighs
a fish ?"

"It Saved My Life"
ts a eommon expression, often heard
from those who have realized, by personal use, the curative powers of Ayer'a
Cherry Peotoral. «I cannot say enough
la praise of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, be-
llerlaff as I do that, hut ror its use, I
shonld long since have died from lung
troubles.—B, Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of eleep and rest, I hod used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say tbat It
helped me at once. By continued use
this medicine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs, E.
Coburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe 1
should have been in my grave, had lt
not been for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of the lungs,
for which I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tho remedies they
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely restored my health.—Lizzie

The Crown Prince,
From our despatches of Saturday

condition of tbo erftwn prince of Germany is very critical,and an announcement of his death at any moment will
not be a surprise. The event, if it
comes now, may hasten tho European
crisis so long looked for, but one cannot predict how far-reaching the consequences may be.
The Coal outlook.
Cnpt. Rogers of the steamor Dunsmuir was unable to procure any coal
at Nanaimo or Wellington, but expects to be ablo to bring ovi'i- n load
next trip. Cnpt. Rogers says the
mines are not turning out much coil
at presont owing to the lack of white
help to tako the places of tiio expelled
Chinese laborers. At both Nanaimo
and Wellington white labor is in great
demand at good wages, §2 to §2.50
per day boing offered to any likely
looking lad of 18 years or over. No.
6 shaft of tho Wellington mines, whore
the explosion occured, will bo reopened this week and is expected to largely
increase tbo daily output. If sufficient
whito labor is secured to take the
places vacated by the Chinamen, the
mines will be turning out tho usual
quantity within a few weeks.

Last year Mr. James Rousseau, of
the mainland tannery, shipped to S.
& H. Borbridge, Ottawa, several sample lots of oak tanned harness leather,
which has given so much satisfaction
that tho firm has written offering to
take the entire season's make, providing the quality is the samo as tho
sample lots received. Messrs. S. & H.
Borbridge are the most extensive manufacturers and dealers in saddlery and
harness goods in Ottawa, and tho fact
that they are anxious to securo all Mr.
Rousaeau'B make of harness leather
speaks volumes in praise of tho leather
turned out by the mainland tannery.
The tanning business is still in its infancy in this province, but tho above
indicates it may soon become a very
important and profitable industry. Mr..
Rousseau has also received largo orders from Calgary and other pluce-t in
tho northwest, whioh makes it evident
tho excellence of his manufactures is
getting to be generally known.
Strict BUNlness.
The finance committeo have set to
work with a will and are rapidly getting matters into line. Since the lirst
of the year not a dollar, due by llie
city to contractors, merchants and
others, has beeu paid, ond in all about
$1,800 is duo to these parties who are
naturally anxious to have tho accounts
squared. Ou Saturday Mr. Herring,
chairman of the finance committee,
completed arrangements for an overdraft of 92000 to the city to meet these
demands, and all accounts duo will
now be paid oft*. In procuring this
overdraft it was necessary forthe members of the committeo to give their
personal notes as security for the loan,
thus making them directly responsible
for the return of tho overdraft. Having the city's finances within their con
trol the committee can, of course, secure themselves, but at tho samo time
tho proceeding show* the committeo to
bej-inimated by the desire to meet all demands promptly and in a business-like
way.
Tlie proposed Foidi-r.
Mr. Joioph C Armstrong returned
last night from hia trip among the different municipalities in the intercuts of
the proposed folder to demonstrate the
wealth and resources of Westminster
district to the world. The first place
visited by Mr. Armstrong was Chilliwhack, and there ho waa well received
by both council and citizens who are
hoartily in accord with the proposed
scheme. At tho noxt meeting of the
council a resolution agreeing to outer
into a contract fo bear a sfmro of the
expense will bo passed and forwarded
to tho Westminster council. At Langley the council will meet next week,
when the matter wilt bo taken up mid
decided on. As everyone is in favor
of the scheme, and consider tho idea a
capital one, it is mre to bo woll received hy the council. Mr, Armstrong
was fortunate enough to reach Surrey
while thn counoil was sitting nml bo
immediately laid tho matter before
them. After a short discussion tho
folder advertising Bchcmo was carried
unanimously. In all tho places visited,
Mr. Armstrong has not heard an opinion expressed adverse tn iho folder.
Mr. Armatroiig*will report tho result
of his mission to tho council this

1Iii|)le Ridge Roads.
Wo havo received another long letter
from Mr. Wm. Johnson, of Port Hammond, relating to this subject, but it
is Oolong and'contains so many statements which seem t>> us un warrantable,
that we think tliu public interest will
be best served by not publishing it.
Mr. Johnson's letter is intended to bo
a reply to that of Mr. Ferguson which
appeared in the Columbian some time
ago. Mr. Johnson still claims that a
large percentage of tho moneys appropriated for road work in tho municipality of Maple Ridge has boen wasted,
and he asserted that this state of things
is partly duo to tho system by which
members of the counoil are permitted
to become interested in municipal contracts. If it is really n fact that thoy
are their own contractors, as stated by
Mr. Johnson, his objection is certainly
well taken; but we arc of opinion that
he must bo mistaken. Mr. Johnson
also says a great deal about whiskey,
and evon intimates many things for
which we nro inclined to think he
would find it difficult to furnish proof.
He claims that there nro only 10 miles
of roads in tho municipality, and that
instead of being turnpiked, as stated
by Mr. Ferguson, they might be more
aptly described us "cabbage-gardened."
Half of tlioso roads, he claims, were
mado by private individuals, and not
at the public expense. With regard to
the 2500 feet of bridges, be says thoy
are so unsafe that people will not venture upon them. Ho maintains that
there is plenty of gravel within easy
reach of the roads. Tho wholo hill, ho
says, is gravel,*a few feet under the
surface, and there is a largo open pit
from which gravel wus obtained for the
railway, nnd it is within two miles of
tho furthest end of any road made in
the municipality. He Bums up bv
aaying that " wo have 20 miles of apologies f«r roads, which aro impaBsable
nearly half tlio year, 10 miles of which
tho peoplo have made for tbeinBelvoB
and at their own expenso; and the
council contractors' have made the
othor leu miles at a cost not less than
$2,000 per mile, and I am very far
from saying they aro any better than
what the peoplo havo mado for themselves." Wo repeat the opinion expressed with respect to Mr. Johnson's
former letter, that his statements are
greatly exaggerated.

The Imperial Parliament.
London, Feb. 18,—After tho vote
was taken on Mr, Parnell's amendment, Mr. Balfour resumed the debate
on the address. Referring to Mr.
O'Brien's attack upon him in the debate, he aaid ho was accustomed to
such attacks in Mr, O'Brien's paper.
He comoled himself by the reflection
that even worse attacks had formerly
beon made upon Mr. O'Brien's prosont
allies. Mr. O'Brien had onco compared Mr, Gladstone to Judas Iscariot,
and United Ireland had insinuated that
Sir George O. Trevolyan and Earl
Spencer had conspired to shield men
guilty of nameless crimea. Mr. O'Brien,
interrupting, Baid ho had merely stated
that Iho result of their action was to
shield thoso persons. "I never alloyed
that they acted willfully." Mr. Bftl-
fdi.r said "I can prove my statements
by reference to United Ireland." Mr.
Balfour continuing compared the
crimes acts of 1882 and 1887, and
maintained that the latter did not
create crimes while the former did.
Ho Baid Mr, O'Brien had bonsted that
his advice to tho peoplo of Mitchelstown, combined with English opinion,
had prevented wholesale evictions,
As a matter of fact tho action of tho
government -had been modified, by
neither of these causes. It was nothing new for the nationalists to preach
resistance to evictions. Mr. Gladstone
eaid that Mr. Balfour's denial that the
conservatives had communicated with
Mr. Pamell on the homo rule question,
did not get rid of the Irish assertions
that they had. Mr, Parnell had stated
ho found himself at that time in entire
agreement with Earl Carnarvon as to
home rule. This had not beon denied
by Mr, Balfour. Earl Carnarvon's
letter replies that he did not express
an opinion on home rule to Mr. Parnell. Mr. Gladstone said that Earl
Carnarvon never denied Mr. Parnell's
statement. It was stated that Lord
Carnarvon spoke only for himself, but
he was viceroy of Ireland at the time
for the very conservatives who now
hold that homo rule in any shape
moans separation. Mr. Gladstone
went on to Bay that it was tho agents
of the law who were the breakers of
the law. At Mitchelstown there was
cruel and wanton bloodshed almost
unexampled. He said Mr, Balfour
had becomo by implication a breaker
of the law, for ho gavo to that act his
approval as if it wero to be n model
fnr the conduct of the police. Mr.
Goachen, the chancellor of tho exchequer, Baid that the country would
notice that the hand of Mr. Gladstone
was stretched out to Mr. O'Brien.
Mr. Gladstone hnd blessed the "plan
of campaign." (Cries of "No.") At
anyruteheliadnot oursedit. Tho action
of tho Gladstnnians had rendered tho
government's task ten times more difficult. It was the new recruits that
supported Mr. Gladstone's now departure. The bulk of his former allies
were silent. They were unable to endorse his present policy. Mr, Gos-
chcu continued, Mr. Morloy spmposnl
was that the law makers should have
immunity if they broke the law. The
government would not allow menaces
from America, Ireland or Mr. Gladstone to divert them from their duty.
Sir W. Harcourt said that the government was right in fearing a dissolution.
The metropolis had to-day given a remarkably pronounced judgment (referring to the Southwark election). He
had heard tho immortal speech of Mr.
Gladstone to-night, and now waited in
patience for tho timo of tho triumph to
come.
