Correspondence of the Columbian.
Everything on Lulu Island bears
a delightful aspect. All the crops
are growing splendidly. The few
days' rain, instead of casting a gloom
over our citizens, as it sometimes
does with our city friends, has cheered the hearts and irradiated the
countenances of every farmer ou Lulu Island, knowing that these gentle
showers are sure forerunners ef beautiful harvests.
Ihe Three Ball Olub of Lulu
Island wii! hold their second regular
meeting at the office of the Phoenix
Canning Oo. on the 23rd inst. The
object of this society is to aid any
member that may be in distress, or
anyone who is not a member. The
society are to be their pawn brokers,
to advance the agricultural and fishing interest of this locality, and
every other possible industry; to become intimate as far as possible with
all the arts and sciences and all
literary branches, and to endeavor
to enforce all the virtues both in
and out of the club, more especially
that grand and glorious virtue, temperance. Oapt. R. Laidlaw is president, Mr. H. Druommond vice-
president, Mr. T. H. Worburton
seoretary and treasurer, and there
is quite a large membership,
Messrs. J. H. Todd & Son's new
cannery will soon be under construction, and many other conspicious
improvements are everywhere apparent,
It appears to suggest itself to
the people of this island that, instead
of the cojectured road from Westminster to the proposed bridges
leading to Vancouver, it would be
much better and cheaper to have a
bridge built across the North Arm
near Westminster city, In this
ease many of the South Arm farmers
would be brought about as near
Westminster by bridge as Yanoe***.
ver. Even should the North Arm
road be built, and the many deep
gullies be bridged, at a very great
expense, the people who live above
the bridges, after going down a considerable distance further away from
Westminster, to get to the bridges
are likely to go to Vanoouver to do
their business even should they desire to go to Westminster, and such
a road through the woods would
for ever be a lonely and dismal drive;
which, on the other hand, if there
was a bridge across near Westminster city to Lulu Island, and a rood
completed from the bridge down the
island, this would be one of the
most lovely drives ever presented to
the lover of picturesque beauty, or
prosperous husbandry, and a great
source of wealth to the city of Westminster. Driving down Uie island,
one could see miles of level prairie
stretching out in all directions, of
the most wonderful fertility, and
beyond this, dark stretches of timber, high mountain peaks, and scenery varying as one would journey
along.
The Richmond corporation will
have a road completed this summer
up this island very near to Westminster city, and we can foresee the
day when the bridge will be built,
and along these roads will everywhere be dotted the rural homes of
the happy sons of toil, and thrifty
farmers, with produce from their
farms on heavy wagons, will be seen
going to the royal city market square,
and the pleasure seeker with his
light buggie will ever choose the
island route and go gliding from tho
the fresh water city to her salt water
sister city, a journey with ever
changing scenery; and then New
Westminster will reach out her arm
across the gently sloping hill until
sho grasps the hand of her salt
water cotemporary, and they will
ever go hand in hand for victory,
destined to become thn great Pacific
metropolis of British North Ameri-
Langley Council.
Counoil met at the town hall Saturday,
June il. Preaent, the reeve and (till
council. Munites of previous' meeting
read and confirmed. Petitions for roads
and bridges were laid ovor until next
meeting. Contract No. 2 was awarded
to D. /ago, at 948.75; No. 4 to W. Ruin,
tage, at II per yard; and No. 5 te It.
Titnnis, at (10 per obain. llie contracts
on river road and dltoh at Norris' were
ordered to be tendered for again at next
meeting. The revenue bylaw was reconsidered and finally passed. The board of
wore instructed to examine Tyes'road
and report at next meeting. The neve's
expenses to Victoria were ordered paid.
The reeve was instructed to take suoh
steps in the Williams ease, as might b.
needful, before next meeting. The board
of works reported having let contract on
sand-pit to W.Towle at $49,150. Counoil adjourned until first Saturday in
July.

THIS HORSING'S DESPATCHES.
THE EMPBE8S VICTOUIA.
Bbklin, June 19.—It is stated today that tho Empress Victoria will
probably go to Italy for a ihnrt rest,
then to England for a time. It ia not
likely tbat she will continue to lire in
Berlin.
BOX FAC-tOUY IlESTROYEIl.

factory and two other buildings. Loss,

BLAINE TAISS.
Durham, June 19.—The Bluine
party arrived here last night. Blaine
was shown some American cablegrams
relating to his candidacy. He said: "I
bave nothing to say regarding rumors
which now, as in every convention
week, are current. Of course, however, I am interested iu convention
work.
DISASTROUS    FIB.K.
Selma, Cal., Juno 19.—The second
disastrous fire that has visited this
town in two weeks occurred yesterday.
Twenty business places were burned
out. Losses aggregate $63,000. Insurance, {25,000.
REPUBLICAN XOMINATIONB.
Chicaoo, June 16.—Chauncey M.
Depew will be placed in nomination
for president st the republican national convention by ex-Senator Warner
Miller, bf New York. If tho speech
seconding the nominstion is to be made
it will be delivered by General Knapp.
John Sherman will be nominated by
Daniel H. Hastings, adjutant-general
of Pennsylvania. Governor Foraker,
oi Ohio, will second the nominaiion.
Tho speech placing Gov. Alger, of
Michigan, in nomination, will be made
by Robert E. Fraser, of Detroit, leading orator of the state. Hon. W. P.
Hepburn, of Iowa, one of the favorite
speakers of the Hawkeye state, will
nominate Senator Allison, of that
state! J. P. Dblliver, also of Iowa,
hfffl Rcond the nomination.
The morning of convention finds no
change in the situation. The adherents of the different candidates are all
hopeful, but none too confident. A
crest deal of Blaine enthusiasm has
been roused since the street demonstrations last night, but it is understood Blaine will not be chosen except
after a deadlock prolonged over three
or four days, and when the chancea uf
candidates now in the field are so hopeless to each that he will join in a request to Blaine. That the convention
is to-day vsstly in favor of hia nomination is apparent, as was the aame feeling here in Chicago at this juncture
four years ago. Therefore there is
really hope in the majority of every
delegation, whether with favorite sons
or not, that things will ao shape themselves ss to bring about a deadlock.
This latest Blaine strength will be
carefully manipulated to allow a preponderance of no candidate until the
critical moment haa come. This, at
least is the programme and it bears
every probability of success. The convention wants Blaine at heart, and il
will have to be dexterously manipulated by Ihe managers of any other candidate who will persuade it out of its
desire. Notwithstanding all the pressure brought to bear on the California
delegation it looks probable this morning that California will carry out its
original intention and nominate Blaine
when the name of that stale is reached
on the roll call. At 12:32 p. in. Chairman Jones, of the national committee,
called the convention to order. Rev.
Frank G. Gunsalulus, of Plymouth
church. Chicago, deli.ered the invocation, after which Miss Emma Romeras,
of the Third Presbyterian Church,
sang "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," to the tune of "John Brown's
Body." Secretary Fessomlon, of the
national committee, then road (he
committee's calls to the convention.
The mention of the protective tariff
created applause. When thu secretary
concluded Chairman Jones advanced to
the platform and delivered a strong address. Mr. Jones made nu indirect
allusion to Blaine nnd Logan, and instantly the whole convention ivas
thrown'into a tumult, anil it was several minutes before tho chairman waa
able to resume liis speech. When he
finished John M. Thumbm, uf Nehrus-
ka. waa introduced a, temporary chairman, rind pfoiivodeJ with his sddrosi.
Ho roftrroil to Binitie ns " tho republican chevalier and the nightmare uf
democracy, the greatest living Ameri
can and object of our undying line,"
at which there was a atorm of cheers
that wero given again and again. Thurston aaid the convention must and daro
tint placo Blaine in nomination after
his wishes. Prolonged Inughtcr waa
acrrnrded Thurston's concludim- statement that Cleveland's administration
has been romsrkable for nnthiuj but
its inocu us desuetude. Hoar, of
Michigan, presented the temporary
chairman with a gavel made of wood
from the tree under which the republican party waa born, at Jackson,
Michigan, July 0, 1854. Dakota was
then admitted, and will be allowed her
ten votes. Washington territory is
given six. Chairman Thurston announoed the presence of General Fremont, of Nebrsssa, Brst presidential
nominee of the republican parly. Fremont's speech was punctured with
lieatty applause, nnd whon he concluded there were ories for Foraker and
Ingersoll. Attention was, however,
attracted to Secretary Fesaenden, who
read the committees on permanent organisation, resolutions and credentials.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Aa Bavarian flinager.
Editor Columbian. — Yesterday as
tho ship Camaua waa nearing the R. C.
P, Mill Co.'s wharf, some officious individual jumped up on a pile of lumber
and welcomed Capt. Gordon with his
good ship. On making enauiry I waa informed that thia individual, whose name
is Tom J, Trapp, was uot in any official
capacity. Is it considered in good taste
in thia place, Mr. Editor, on au occasion
of this sort for a private individual to
get up in the presence of the mayor snd
aldermen and assume the functions of
the highest civio officer?
Stranger.
Ladner's lleeaalag Cart.
Editor Columhian.—I notice in your
issue of the 15th inst. a telegram reporting sitting of the licensing court here,
statins a license was granted to Guichoni
Thia must be an error, as of the four
magistrates on the bench, two,—H. Ben.
son and John Kirkland—were in favor,
and two—W. H. Ladner aad John Mc.
Kee, Jr.—opposed to granting it. The
council cannot issue a license, according
to the act, unless a majority of the magistrates are in favor of granting—one, at
least—that is the way the act reads to
Stoma.
[In reference to the above wo might
say the report of the licensing board was
sent us by our regular correspondent at
Ladnera, who probably did not understand the reading of the set. -Ed.]
The Fewer efsteaaa.
Editor Columbian. — "To find the
strain npon a high-pressure boiler, 30 ft,
long, 0 ft. diameter, having two centre
flues, each 2 ft. 3 inches diameter, working at a pressure of 50 lba. on the square
inch, we have only to multiply the number of square feet of surface, 1030, exposed to pressue, by 321, and we have
the force of 3319 tons, which such a
boiler has to sustain. To go farther,
and estimate the pressure at 450 lbs. on
the square inch, which a well-constructed
boiler of thia size will bear before it
bursts, and we have the enormous force
of 29,871, nr nearly 80,000 tons, bottled
up within a cylinder 30 feet long and 6
feet diameter." Incessant watchfulness
is necessary to look out for impending
danger in every publio direction, and no
steam-engineer, while on duty, should
relax hia energy, care, caution, watchfulness, decision, and presence of mind for
a single moment, Hence tbe best and
leading railroads feel the imperative
necessity of placing their engines only
in the care of total-abstainen from intoxicating drinks. Wm. Kent.

The Mta DchMl Qaeslln Mala.
Editor Columbian.—The tirade of
words that appeared in last Saturday's
isauo of The Columbian over the aigna-
ture of T. J. Trapp must have reminded
many of your readers of the oft quoted
adage about people whoso dwellings are
of frail material. Would anyone in hla
senses overstep the bounds of common
decency to the extent that the writer of
this scurrilous article did in bis attempt
to damage the reputation ef one of onr
most talented and respected citizens 1 I
consider, Mr, Editor, that it ia very necessary to keep a careful watoh on any
person that would be capable of deliberately penning auch an unprecedented,
malicious paragraph aa that ono in which
tho writer endeavors to cast heavy reflections on Mr. Strarnberg'a capacity aa
a school teacher. In reference to "a letter written by someone and signed by
Wm. Ross"—"Tho public know Mr. Ross
and can draw their own conclusions"—I
can tell Mr. Trapp that Wm. Ross can

Yesterday wa» a red-letter day
in the annals of' Now Westminster.
The pioneer lumber vessel—the long
expected herald of a new era in tiro
lumbering industry—arrived shortly
after 4 o'clock, in tow of the tug
Pilot and in charge of Capt. JIoAl-
lister, and is now lying at tho Royal
Oity Planing Mills wharves in this
city, loading lumber for tlio foreign
market. In tho column report which
The Columbian gave its readers yesterday, they were duly informed of
the particulars of the Oaraana's arrival at the mouth of the river, the
reception given the deputation from
this city, on board, by tho gallant
Oapt. Gordon, the triumphant passage of tho sandheads and subsequent progress up the noble Fraser,
and the ultimate arrival and enthusiastic reception of the fine ship,
gay with streamers and flags, at the
royal city, the fresh water terminus
of the C.P.R. The sandheads bugbear of interested parties was completely demolished, and Capt. Gordon
drew some very favorable comparisons between the navigation of the
Fraser and tbat of other navigable
rivers by sea-going vessels, particularly in the matter of the case and
rapidity with whiqh the river was
ascended, with only one tug, while
in other instances cited two or three
tugs were required, and worse time
made, owing to the force of the currents. It should bo remembered, in
this connection, that this is the
freshet season, and our currents are
at the strongest. Eighteen feet of
water, low tide, was the shallowest
water found by soundings yesterday,
and it was easily demonstrated that
it would require a much larger vessel than the Camana, drawing 17
feet loaded, to raise the question of
the sandheads at all in navigation,
even when the improvements, as at
present, are uncompleted. A moderate additional outlay at the river
mouth will give Westminster the
status of one of the first seaports of
the world. We congratulate the
oitizens of Westminster, Oapts. Gordon and McAllister, and the enterprising managers of the R. C. P. M.
Co., upon this auspicious inauguration of a new era in one of the
most important industries of the
province,
The Times (Viotoria), the'other
day, in an article on ""Utteiy Swindles," cites some interesting facts
which people who "speculate" much
but not wisely would do well to
constantly remember. Referring to
the action taken by the Hon. Mr.
Mercier, premier of Quebec, relative
to the suppression of lotteries, as
well as the private measures adopted by the Dominion government
to suppress the "bucket shop" traffic,
the Times very appropriately remarks: "The drain of Canadian
capital for foreign lottery swindles
is much more serious than most pco
pie are aware of. * * * The
lottery which now draws so much
money from the pockets of our people—and hard-earned money in
many instances it is—is the Louisiana lottery,, whieh claims credit for
occasionally paying a few prizes in
order to keep up its name. AU tbe
same it is the most gigantic swindle
ever invented." Right you are,
friend Times. Our cotemporary
adds: "The following is stated to
be the plan upon whioh the lottery
is conducted. AU the tickets for
each drawing are not sold, but a
very considerable part of them are.
But ln case any remain unsold they
are the property of the company.
The full number of 100,000 tickets
participate in each drawing, lf in
a quarterly drawing, for instance,
the tickets hare all been sold, the
company have received for them
12,000,000 in cash, and after paying
the prizes they have nearly $1,000,-
000 left. If only one half of the
tickets have been sold the company
have received for them $1,000,000
in cash and stilt have one half of the
tickets left, which participate fully
in all chances of the lottery. Prizes
drawn by any one of these tickets
belong to the company. * * *
In short there is no form of gambling where the ohances are so terribly against the player and in favor
of the bank. For every dollar invested in tickets fifty cents goes
permanently into the treasury of
the lottery, * * * Yet it is
into this gigantic iniquity that
thousands of dollars from Victoria
and the province of British Columbia
are lent yearly. * * * It is
believed the managers find in Oanada a more fertile field for 'suckers'
tnd 'greenies' than in the United
States. * * * For every one
who will succeed ninety and ninety-
nine hundred will fail in even getting the value of a postage stamp."
The Timet mjt that thousands of
dollan are tent annually from Victoria to help keep up this colossal
legalized fraud. We do not suppose
the people of the royal city are any
leu "enterprising," in proportion,
and it may, perhaps, be safe to say
lhat thousands of dollars go out of
this oity to a foreign land—for
which, of course, no equivalent is
reoeived—every year. We may be
over the mark, but when it is remembered the frequent opportuni-
ties given to the "speculative" by
thete LouIiUnt "boodlera"--quart.
erly drtwingt. 100,000 t"*****1*'* Bt
Child™ ttyfer Wi*«fc0«Wia
$20 a ticket, and monthly drawings,
100,000 tickets, at §10 a ticket—it
can easily be seen what a strong
temptation there is for those who
have "got on the string" to "drop"
an X or a double X every time the
occasion offers and their purse will
permit. We leave it, however, to
the initiated to estimate just how
much in round numbers is blown
out of the town and into Louisiana
every year. If tbe sum is as large
as we suspect, it must prove a
serious drain upon our resources.
This sort of "speculation" must be
the result of thoughtlessness, as it is
both unpatriotic and suicidal to tlie
state and certainly very littlo short
of ruinous to the individual. Those
who refuse to see the harm of the
practice from an ethical standpoint,
might, we beliove, with a little
thought, detect its economical rottenness. Suppose, for example, 100
individuals in a city the size of
Westminster to be habitually "speculating" in lottery tickets. On an
average they would each probably
take, say two §20 ond three $10
tickets a year, (lf this is too high
an estimate the reador will correct
to suit himself.) That would be $70
each a year, which, multiplied by
100, would givo $7,000. The experience of the initiated will probably bear us out when we say that
$1,000 a year is too high a figure to
expect in return for the $7,000 outlay. We havo an idea, which,if the
reader will lend an car, ho can have
for just what it cost us: British
Columbia is a new and rich country
with boundless resources awaiting
capital to transmute its latent wealth
into gold. Suppose that theso 100
individuals aforesaid, instoad of
"giving themselves away" in the
manner described, and enriching
the cotton-growers "down south,"
should put their headB and their
spare change together for a year or
two, they would have a fund—and
a constantly increasing fund—which
would unablo them to "tackle" almost any legitimate enterprise imaginable, and at the same time prove
a constantly increasing source of
strength and wealth to tho community, instead of a draw-back and
a drain, as at presont. Of course,
the benefit to the "speculators"
themselves would bo as appreciable
as it would be deserved; they would
be "running the bunk" themselves,
and would at least get good interest
on their money in almost any home
industry it might be invested in, if
ordinary prudence were exercised.
Such habits, too, would engender an
interest in legitimate und reproductive industries, and lead in time to
other large and worse than useless
disbursements being diverted into
the same healthy channel. If we
could suppose for ti moment that
thero wore not good openings on
every hand for surplus capital that
now flows out of the country, without the remotest prospect of a quid
pro quo being received by anybody,
it would bo niuch better, both
for tho country and the deluded
votaries of foreign "boodlers," if the
money thus squandered were saved
up in a common repository until a
large hoard was accumulated, and
then, a la the "noble red man," dispensed periodically in a grand cultus
potluch. But the authorities have
shut down on the poor Indian's hyu,
cultus potkttch, on the ground that
it was demoralizing the unfortunate
native; with jnuch stronger reason
should they shut down on some of
the demoralizing abuses that are
playing havoo with the "poor white
man." We shall be glad to have
suggestions from correspondents relative to establishing a cooperative
capitalistic association, with the object of diverting idle and misapplied
capital into legitimate and reproductive channels, thus materially
aiding in developing the resources of
the country, proving a blessing to
hundreds of small "capitalists," enabling thorn to combine their forces
to advantage and reap a commensurate reward, and, by the establishing of new industries, and the maintenance of others, to furnish employment to an increased population,
whicli in time, would, of course, react favorably upon the general prosperity. In tho event that tho foro
going suggestions should not apply
in Westminster, for the reason that
nobody here "does such things," wo
would respectfully dedicate these
remarks to our Victoria friends,
who have already, through one of
their leading journals, honestly "acknowledged the corn."

"It Saved My Life"
Is a common expression, often heard
from those who have realized, hy personal uso, tho curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. ** I cannot say enough
in pratso of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing as I do that, hut ior its use, I
should long sinco have died from lung
trouhles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six montha ago I had a severe
Homorrhago of tlio Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I had 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 that it
helped me at once. By continued use
this medicino cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my lifo—Mrs. E.
Coburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
for over a year, and sincerely bolieve I
should havo been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of tho lungs,
for which I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Provinco of Ontario.
Ayor's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took ft very severo Cold
Whieh settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tho remedies they
prescribed, but failod to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer'a Chorry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicino
completely restored my health.—Lizzie

The Latest Information Regarding the
Pigmy Races of ffi.cn.
A lectnto was given recently at the
(Royal InBtltutlon, London, by Professor
iFlower, 0. B., F. K. S.,the Director of
the Natural History Departments of the
British Museum, on "Tho Pigmy Races
of Men."
Various classical authors—Homer, He*
■xodotna, Aristotle, Ctesias, Pliny and
others were cited to show tha wide-spread
'belief la the existence of races of human
beings of exceedingly diminutive stature,
and to which the name of Pigmy was
given,
Extension of knowledge of tho natural
-products of the earth and a more critical
< spirit on tho part of authors led to attempts to explain this belief, and the discovery of races of monkeys, of the doings
of which more or less fabulous stories
were often reported by travelers, generally-sufficed tbe commentators and naturalists of the Inst century for tliis purpose.
Recently acquired information as to tho
actual condition ot the human population
of the globe has, however, led to a revision of the ideas upon the subject, and M.
de Quatrefsgcs, the eminent professor of
anthropology at Paris, has especially carefully examined and collated all the evidence bearing upon the question, and devoted much ingenuity to prove that the
two localities in which the ancient authors appear to place their Pigmies, the
(interior of Africa and the southernmost
■parts of Asia, and the characters thoy assign to them indicate nn actual knowledge
of tbe existence of the two groups of small
people who still inhabit those regions,
aud whose history formed the subject of
the lecture.
Tho Andaman Islands In the Indian
Ocean are inhabited by a race of great interest to tho anthropologist. The inhabitants do not cultivate the ground nor
keep any domestic animals, but they have
a rude kind of hand-made pottery, and
make vessels for holding water ont of the
hollow stems of bamboos; they also make
excellent fishing nets and baskets. They
nre perfect swimmers and divers and expert nt managing canoes. Their princl->
pal weapon is the bow and arrow, hut
t liey also use spears, harpoons, etc. They
have no metals, and appear not to know
how to produce fire, though they nlways
preserve It carefully ns they rarely cat
1 any food which is not cooked. They live
chiefly on wild pigs, birds, turtles, fish,
wild fruits, roots and seeds, larva*, of insects, and honey, and drink nothing hut
water.
Ono of tho most distinctive physical
features of the Andamanesu is their dlm-
! inutivo size.   Accurate measurements of
1 a large number have been made, showing
that the average height of themenis4ft.
' 0i»., that of tho women 4ft. (lln.   The
color of their skin is dark, almostblnck,
■ their hair is exceedingly closely curled or
"frizzly," and their heads are of thashort
1 round type.   The treat interest of the
Andamanese natives is that they nro the
' only remaining puro specimens of a raco
1 of small stature, dark color, and frizzly
' hair which appear to bo tiu earliest inhabitants of a I urge part of .Southern Asia,
Including India, Slam, Cochin China, and
i all tbe islands of the Indo-Malayau Archipelago—a raco to which the name of Negrito has been given.

How tho Great Chancellor Made Sure ol
Getting It.-
I heard an anecdote last week of which
Prince Bismarck is tho hero, which would
tend to show that ho does not always gain
his ends bythe blunt, outspoken means
he so often adopts.
When tho German army was besieging
Paris years ago, Prince Binmarck, like the
Emperor and tho Crown* Prince, of course
resided in Versailles, and the bouse he
occupied is still pointed out to curious
visitors, although its owner has so altered
its exterior appeai-unce (it is said from
patriotic motives) that Prince Bismarck
himself would probably fail to recognize
it again.
During his forced occupancy of the
dwelling Prince Bismarck is reported to
have several times come in collision with
its patriotic proprietor.
When the time came for tho hoiulquar-
ters to leavo Versailles, Princo Bismarck
not unnaturally wished to take with him
as a historical relic t lie rosewood writing
table on which ho had during the occupancy of the, houso signed so many momentous decrees and mado so much history.
So ho sent for tho proprietor and expressed his wish to purchase the table,
which was a very ordinary and Inexpensive one, at any misonable price which
might be named. But, not much to the
Prince's surprise probably, tho proprietor
refused to part witii the piece of furniture
in question. Nor did Bismarck attempt
to arguo with the man, He merely said,
■"Very well," and let him go.
But that same night two-German soldiers of tho Engineer Corps, who chanced
to be skilled cabinc.' makers, were brought
to the Chancellor'--) bouse, and within
twenty-four hours they had made a table
so like tho ortginul ono which the Prince
wished to take with htm that no merely
superficial glance would bave disclosed
any difference between the two. Tho sequel can bo guessed;
When Prince BUnuirck's baggago left
Versailles tho "Simon pure" table, if I
may so term it, was safely packed aw y
with his effects, while the only one loft i.i
tho embrasure of tlio bow window of i lie
room tho Chancellor had so long occupied
wns tlie imitation one that had been mudu
by bis orders.
Whether tho proprietor of tho houso detected tlie fact of the sub.stiiul!n*i lam-
not say, but it is certain that tho historical
table he refused to cell to tho Chancellor
is now at "Varan., where it has been duly
scheduled among llio items thnt ure to be
handed down iu the Bismarck family as
heirlooms.

"The very earliest telegraph in America," said great-grandpa, seating himself
In his story-spiuning chair, and taking
Bright Eyes on his knee, -'was iu active
operation iu Vermont, while tho settleri
were doing their best to becomo actual !y
settled. Mother Swan lived there, ln tlie
centre of what is now a flourishing town,
but which wns then a pathless forest; and,
beiug a widow, was obliged to look out
herself for her little garden ond live
stock.
"Every morning tbe cows were let out
to feed, nnd went straying away through
the woods, and sometimes, by three
o'clock, not a tinkle of their bells could
be heard. Then Mother Swan's telegraph
came iuto piny. - .***_. - ■
"She had eight children, nud tliese she
sent to find tho wandering animals; but
sbo did not despatch them together, for
then they might easily havo become lost
in the woods, Tho youngest child waa
stationed just far enough from the houso
for her mother to hear her ffah& should
call; the next In size went ouly fareuongh
to bo ablo to communicate with thu first,
and so the lino stretched out.
"When tho ono a t the farther c:ul of tho
line changed his position, in looking for
the cows, he shouted directions bnck to
thu next station, and bo tho line moved to
left or right, as the case mis-ht be, pe>
haps ending, before the cows wero found,
in describing a circle about tbe honse, exactly as that might be done by the minuto
hand of a clock, the log cabin, with" the
anxious mother, being at the center of the
dial.
"At tho first tinkle of the cow-bells,
'Found!' cried Number Eight, and
'Found 1' repeated Number Seven; and bo
tho news rau along the line, until Mother
Swan herself received it. And the little
sentinels kept their places until tho cows
had been collected aud driven home, as
nearly ns might bo In the line held by
these original telegraph operators,"

Tho story of the Cape Cod youth who

Ho happened to be visiting In Boston, a
good while ago, on the Fourth of July,
and went out on the Common to see the
sights. He roturned in an hour or two,
looking rather rueful. -.
"What's tho matter, Silas!1" ho was
asked.
"(Josh all hemlocks!" ho exclaimed,
"this is the most extravagant place I ever
Bee."
"What has happened!"
"Wai, you know that quarter of a dollar you gave me this morning!"

Carbon and Milk.
In spring and enrly summer milk Is apt
to have a garlicky or onton-like flavor
from some odorous shrub eaten by the
cows.
To absorb this peculiar taint drop a
piece of wood-charcoal, three or four inches square, into eaoh pan of the fluid, or
Into tbe milk-pitcher for table. The carbon very quickly deodorises tho milk,

Skipping Notes.
Tho crew of Ihe Oamana commenced
work thit morning trimming the btl<
lut preparatory to taking in cargo.
The Royal City Mills have erected a
bridge on the new wharf,, by which
lumber leaving the taws will be rolled
directly into the vessel, thus laving
muoh unnecessary handling. Stevedore
York hu everything in readinen for
■towing away the cargo, and it ia expected this work will begin at noon to-
morrnw. By the ease and convenience
with which the thip can be loaded it it
thought the whole cargo will be aboard
and the thip ready for tea in fifteen
days. If thit can be accomplished it
will be the mott rapid loading done on
the coa.t. Thii record the Royal City
Mills intend alerting with and will keep
it up in each succeeding oase.

vanished when it waa further learned
that Oapt Gordon was ordered home
to take tho command of a fine four-
matted thip just completed by Nicholson & McGill, of Liverpool. Cupt.
Gordon will remain in charge of the
Oamana till sho is ready for sea, when
Oapt. Worrall will assume control of
her. We congratulate Capt. Gordon

A correspondent thus facetiously
describes the annual- school meeting at
Langley Prairie: "The annual meeting of the Prairie school district was
held Monday, June 18th, and the
seige of Deny was fought in the
ancient style. All the army was called
out in full blast; the principal gunneri
were McKee and Smith; drum major,
Larmon;J. K. Nelson, minister of
war. The army consist! of the 42nd
Highlanders and the light dragoons.
There were a few vollies fired between
the gunners, whioh resulted in the promotion of Capt. R. Msolnnet to min-
ister of war, in the room of Nelson,
who it rather too old to stand the
fighting. Aide-decamp Culvert retreated at iho sound of the cannon,
and that is all killed, missing and
wounded. The generals propose to
fight the battle of Trafalgar one year
from date."
Our correspondent adds a small item,
to which, of course we cannot see the
point, but we suppose the "red-headed
batcholor" in question will, and the
"pleasant look" on his bucolic visage
will probably change to one of tour
displeasure. The item reads: "It
makes quite a pleasant look on a redheaded batohelor to hold a line two-
year-old curly-headed child up on hit
arm, don't it, oh!" We should imagine that it would.

Jottings From Aftssslz.
The moist weather we are having,
coming after the dry spell, is bringing
forward the crops at a rapid rate, and
Sresent indications point to this neigh-
orhood fully keeping up its reputation
for.abundaut yield.
The Harrison is higher than it hat
yet been this year. The hot springs
road is flooded in some places, and the
stage had a narrow escape while attempting to cross a floating corduroy on
Friday night. It is now impossible to
reach the tpringt with teami, part of
tlie trip having to be made in boatt.
The ranks of the benedicts here have
Buffered from desertion in the shape of
our enterprising neighbor, Mr. Duncan
Robertson, who wu recently married
to Miu McEwen. It is to be hoped
the good example will be followed by
othen.
We were glad to note the arrival
lore of Messrs Turner and Sprott to
report upon the road requirements in
this neighborhood. The settlers are
pleased to know the government has
not forgotten them; in truth we have
been badly neglected in the past, tho
hot springs road boing the only piece
of work ever attempted in this vicinity,
while people living in the neighborhood of Mr. Free's at one end of the
valley, and Maria bland at tho other,
are completely isolated from the station. Mr. Turner, however, is the
right man in tbe right place, and we
are sure that if his report is aoled upon
there will be no cauto for complaint in
the future.
Residents here were a good deal ex-
eroiied over an artiole in your paper
of a late date, relating to "Sea Bjrd"
Island aud the Indians; the name of
this island is Maria Island, and lies he
tween thia station and Sea Bird bluffs.
It ia about six miles long, with the
railway running through the centre of
it. It is uid that it wai reserved for
the Yale Indians, provided they settled upon it within a certain time,
which they failed to do, although frequently advited lo do to by the R. C.
clergy. In 1885 a few of them took
the advice, ln to far u to put in a few
potatoes "among the logs, which they
nover dug out, and did not return until thii ipring, when some 20 of them
omne down and made another feeble
attempt at cultivation, living in tents.
It might bl laid to bo a remarkable
coincidence that Mr. P. McTiernan,
Indian agent, should come upon the
tcene, about a week after their arrival,
to take atook in the inhabitants of the
island.
There hu never been but one family living upon thii inland; it conaiata
of three persona, and doet not belong
to the tribe for whom it wu reserved;
the whole amount of land cultivated
upon thit large itland doea not exceed
3 acroi, and people are justly incensed
to think that sharp practices are resorted to in order to keep the largo
tnct of magnificent land in a state of
primeval wilderness, when it might
afford hornet for tcorea of white families, who would contribute their quota
to the support and woll being of the
province.—Com.
Mr. Alex. Eobinaon, of Exeter, iu writing about one of the moat popular artioles, and one that hu done more good to
the afflicted than any other medicine hu
during the short time it haa been in existence, saya: I have rsed four bottles of
Northrop b Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Cure, and hare been cured
bf Dyspepsia that troubled me for over
ten years, Part of that time I had it
very bad, aud wu at considerable expense trying to get relief; but this excellent remedy wu the first and only relief
I received."
