A Hot Wenther Story.
A Hillsdale, Mich., tlespatob to
the Chicago Tribune says:—A cur
ioua electric phenomenon is reported
{rom Fayette Towngkip, Hitlgdalr?
County.' Thuraday erening „'lively
thunder shower passed over that region, during which Outplay ot'light-
nlhij was peculiarly frequent and
vivid. Just before the storm broke
Amos J. Briggs, a farmer living
midway between Hillsdale and
Jonesville, who is quite bald, his
head being smooth and shiny, went
into, hia back yard to frighten away
some cats that were lighting on the
woodpile. So intent were they on
exterminating ono another aa to
allow Farmer Briggs to approach
within a few feet of them, At the
same instant there, was a great crash,
and an eleotric bolt struck the woodpile, scattering it and stiffening tha
eats in an intense etyor inorti*.
Aside from a prickly sensation and
sudden contraction of the muscles,
Mr.: Briggs experienced no unpleasant effects., The fluid passed down
his body, tore the works of hia watch
to pieces, breaking the cover, ripped
his left trousers leg from top to bottom anil burst his left boot, tearing
the upper clear from the sole. When
he entered the house his wife fainted. Unoonsoious of the oause the
farmer hastened to bring her to.
The Brst words she uttered, "O,
Amos, the devil has set bis mark
on ypu," exoltetl his rtriosity, and
he looked in the glass snd found the
image of u black cat photographed
in silhouecke on his bald front. The
picture was perfect. It was about
live inches from tip to tip and in
perfect proportion. Tbe oat's "whiskers," teeth, and even the hairs on
its toil were reproduced with exv,
quisite minuteness. Curiosity being satisfied, they tried to remove
the obnoxious marking, using such
homely remedies as soapsuds and
*»iuiwAru>k,_ viuegw and ashes,
etc., but to no purpose. However,
in the morning tbe picture Was
much faded, and by noon it had
quite disappeared.
Rice Throwing at Weddlng-d.
In tlie days of the Shang dynasty,
some 1,800 years before Christ, there
lived in the Province of Shansi a
most famous sorcerer called Ghao,
It happened one day that a Mr.
Fang came to consult the oracle,
and Ohao, having divined by means
of the tortoise diagram, informed
the trembling Fang that he had
but six day to live. Now, however
muoh we may trust the sagacity
and skill of our family physician,
we may be exoused U, in a matter
of life and death, we call in a second
doctor (or a consultation, and ih
suoh a strait it is not to be wondered at tbat Fang should repair to
another source to make sure that
there was no mistake. To the fair
Feochblossom be went, a young lady
who had acquired some reputation
as u sorceress, and to the tender
feminine heart unfolded the story
of his woe. Her divination yielded
the same result as Ohao's; in six
days P'ang should die, unless, by
the exeroise of her magical powers,
she oould avert the catastrophe.
Her efforts were successful, and on
the seventh day great was Chaos'
astonishment, and still greater his
mortification and rage, when he met
Fang taking his evening stroll, and
learned thatJUere lived a greater
magician than he. The story would
soon get about; and, unless he could
put an end to his fair rival's existence, his reputation would be ruined. And this is how Chao plotted
against tbe life of Peschblpesotn.
He sent a go-between to Feacnblos-
som's parents to enquire if their
daughter was still unmarried, and
receiving a reply in tbe affirmative,
he befooled the simple parents into
ir-rDr.*.::. .l... l. l.j l. ___
believing that he had a son who
seeking a wife, and ultimately he
induced them to engage Peaohblo*.
som to biin in marriage. The marriage cards were duly interchanged
but the crafty Ohao had chosen the
most Unlucky day he could select
for the wedding, the day when the
"Uolden Pheasant" was in tbe ascendant. Surely as the bride en-
tered the red chair the spirit bird
would destroy her with his power
ful beak. But the wise Peaohblo*
som knew all these things and fear
ednot. "I will go," she said; "I
will fight and defeat him." When
the wedding morning came she gave
directions to have nee thrown out
at the door, which the spirit bird
seeing made haste to devour, and
while his attention wu thus ooou-

THE EXPRESS DEAL.
Baltimore, Sept. 2.— A statement

is general rejoicing to-day. The
weather ia bright and bncing, and the
city seems as if a great anniversary uf

27th and several shocks afterward

repetition of hut year's disaster.

Winnipeg, Aug. 25.—Mr. Briggs, a
leading Reform politician, who holds
a brief from the Canadian Pacific Railway Company in the injunction proceedings, urges the people to cease to
talk of rebellion, and if the legal decision is against them to resume tbe '
agitation. After constitutional methods
have been exhausted, it will be, he
thinks, high time for withdrawal Irom

False Conclusions.
There is not among all our exchanges a newspaper (except it be
the Guardian) with whicli it is
more unsatisfactory to engage in a
discussion than the Vancouver Herald. The perversity with which
the editor of that paper twists and
misrepresents facts is only equalled
by the facility with which he reaches
unjustifiable conclusions. In his
issue of Wednesday he starts out
with a column of editorial founded
upon false premises and pretends to
prove theories and establish facts
which have no existence. Moreover,
wo never knew a single instance in
which over cotemporary hod tho
grace to acknowledge an error when
it was clearly pointed out to him.
In the article to which we refer he
undertakes to criticise the Columbian" because a few days ago it congratulated some provincial papers
upon their change of front towards
the question of disallowance. We
pointed out that these papers some
months ago bad either tacitly or ex-
plicity maintained tbe right and
propriety of the disallowance policy
pursued by the federal government
towards provincial railway charters,
and our congratulations were based
upon a very distinct change in their
attitude respecting the principle involved. But our Vancouver cotem-
poiary dishonestly and entirely
thrusts aside the principle, and announces that this journal "congratulates itself because it has two allies
in the province who are hostile to
the 0. P. B." This is a barefaced
perversion of fact; but it is scarcely
less so than his assertion that the
Columbian has promised to shoulder
its musket "and march to the assistance of the Manitoba rebels." Our
cotemporary will not be able to find
in the fyles of the Columbian any
such promise. Having accomplished
a perversion of facts, our cotemporary proceeds to discuss the question of disallowance in a spirit
which would produce in the mind
of the reader an impression that he
is anxious above all things to appear
as a champion for the Canadian
Pacific Railway. Tho contention
that disallowance is a question entirely within the control of the
people's representatives in parliament is abstractly correct; but.no
one knows better than our cotemporary that under the prevailing
system of party government the
acts passed by parliament are not
always an expression of the opinion
of a majority of the representatives.
Party legislation is settled by a
party vote, and in matters of this
sort it is not left to the individual
member to say bow he shall vote at
all. The votes are determined by
the party leaders, and the representatives to a great extent becomo
voting machines in the interest of
the party. We believe that the
political machine had a great deal
to do with the disallowance vote.
It maybe true that Sir John intimated to some of the British Columbia members that they were free
to vote as they chose, but this was
not done until ho had ascertained
definitely tbat the government
would be sustained by a clear majority. Our cotemporary says that a
majority of Manitoba representatives were and are supporting the
railway policy of the Dominion government—that is, the disallowance
policy, and he infers from this tbat
the strike against disallowance in
Manitoba is confined to a minority,
of the people! The statement is
misleading and the deduction therefrom absolutely false Our cotemporary is very badly posted if he
does not know, that in Manitoba
friends of the government were
elected on the distinct understanding tbat the disallowance policy
would be discontinued, and it was
intimated on behalf the authorities
at Ottawa thnt, consequently, it
would be in the interest of the province to elect solid government supporters. These representations
secured the return of all the government candidates but one. The fact
that the local government, withsuch
a staunch Conservative as Mr. Nor-
quay at the head of it, is unanimously opposed to disallowance is
surely better evidence of public sen-,
timent than that which our cotemporary put* forward. The Herald
sees great .danger to confederation
in the agitation over disallowance,
and seems to think that if anything
should burst the whole responsibility would rest with the agitators.
Did it never occur to our cotemporary that the responsibility might
rest upon those whose policy caused
the agitation!. The policy of disallowance is clearly not in the interest of the country. This is admitted, we think, by. every independent
newspaper in Canada. The opinion
of the party press on a party question is soircely worth consideration
—it is very much like the machine
vote of a machine politician in the
house. Bui the federal government
persist* in adhering to this unjust
policy to the serious damage of the
Manitoban*, and we are not sure
bnt the government, and not the
agitators, will be answerable for
any leriom mult that may come of
it. The federal government bas
noted in,, M trbitrary manner, but
redrew mwjW-s'odght in vain in a
houn wltoMMMlbera to a large ex.
tent do not represent their constituents on this question.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(IjIICITBD.)
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1687,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchaser! hy rr
joint stock company composed of citizens
ol New Westminster, to be known ss the
"British Colombian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned ami controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. Tlio object of
the new oompany ia to continue the i-rrb-
licatlon of the British Columbian new*,
paper and carry on a acncral printing anil
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of tho Mainland. There will ho no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in tho management of tho establishment, and it* patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to bo entirely independent tn both Dominion.and
provincial politic, and will dovote Itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered In the public interest.
The concern I* now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this oity
having been taken over liy Mr. T. K.
Pearson, who will oontinue to carry it on
In hi* own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
■hould be maintained in this city, and
th* new oompany asks for publlo patronage on the ground that It is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Col..
umiian be Judged on It* own merit* and
supported only so long u it* polioy la

The Olothes that Kill.
Tho advice to women to promoto their
health by out-door exerciso is never
r/niithig. But no amount of fresii-nir
exorcise can save women from the evil
ellects nf their present style of dress. It
is trreir clothes that kill them.

the instep, and she lifts it on tho heel.
Tlie ^weight may be ounces or pounds,
lint it is taken up nt every step. The
heavy skirts, with flounces, overskirt,
bustle, braid, beads, anil other trimmings,
bring their many pounds and many yards,
Hupping around tlio feet and legs of tbo
wearer. Tlie corset does not allow spneo
lu take a full breath, and the tight sleeves
criiisn the muscles to cry for room.
Dressed in this fnsoion, the wearer
ronres bnek from her walk for "fresh air
rind exercise" tired through and through,
an I is the worse for it, beeauso slur has
lifted and earriod hundreds of pounds.
stand at auy eity street-corner, and
wutch the women- as they pass. How
tired they look 1 How their dresses flap
round tliom! Contrast them witii the
men. Men's feet lift no weight of clothes.
.Men's steps contend with nothing. Every
. muscle has it natural exercise. Out-door
) air ami exercise aro good for them.
The advice women need is for shorter,
lighter nnd looser dressos. Sfis'J'eiiiiess '
Miller has not come a dny too soon with
her better costum if tlie health oi women
Is to be improved. Mrs. Celin B. Whitehead has shown "What's tlio mutter."
Before her, Mrs. Amelia Bloomer, nearly
frr tv your* ago, sot the example of short,
loose dresses. "That Btyjo was udupted
liy many women, among them Mrs.
I liznbeth Ondy Stanton,'Miss Susan B.

street hnd no terror, for there were no
yards of draggled skirts to clean. We
iiud room to breathe, nnd freedom for
our feet. But this healthful dress was
"despised and rejected" by the groat
public. On one occasion, Miss Anthoiiy,
in company with me, started to go to the
jrost-olllce in New York, in the Bloomer
costume. But we were surrounded and
wedged in by a crowd which hooted and
jeered. We escaped only by a carriage
sent by a friend who saw onr dilemma.
It was so difficult to wear this dress,
with .the odium that was cast upon it,
> that we returned sorrowfully to tho
"' bondage of our bodies for the sako of
freedom to live unmolested. - That was
long ago. Now women might accept tho
light, se'nsiblo dress which Mrs. Jenness
Miller wears and commends, without
friir or unpleasant comment. In it they
may take fresh air and exercise, and gain
in health.
Baron von Humboldt says that in all
tropical countries tlie natives show an almost irrcsistablo desire toswallow'enrth;

Iliiinlinl.lt, iii desonding tho Orinoco,
pas red a day with tho earth-eating tribe
nf Indians called the Otouincs, and thus
describes the .peculiar diet And habits of

"Ihe earth which tho Ottoninses eat is

banks of the Orinoco nnd Meto, and so-
lest it with cure, ns thoy do not consider
nil clays agreeable to eat. They knead the
r mill into balls of about five or six inches

of tlie.u would cut from three-quarters

After mentioning other instances,

Unspoken, the lovo and tenderness, the

Tun witticism of the Into Mr. Beecher's
bon mol, "Some peoplo pray cream, and
live skim-milk," applies to too many.
They profess and promise much, but are
shockingly ilelinquontin the performance
of duties which gives the best proof of
piety. Tp blemish ngood creed by bad
living is certainly blamablo.
I'niiixnsiiii'and lovo differ mainly in
this—that whereas tlie felicity of friendship consists in a mutual interchange of
beiiulibr, 'intellectual and other, Hint of
iove is in giving ou one part and receiv-

jcplioh of how sweet it is to the ondower

\Vn,vTi:viiU is in us must come out,

Perhaps the thought that it is not to be

It is cosier to rcc tho harm done by

some of the ell'erlsni deception or slander,
while we do not know what may follow
from an enfeebled physical system. Ono
thing, however, we do know, that every
broken law brings its penalty, not onlj-to
the transgressor, but through him to the
world, and tlie laws of our bodies form no
exception. We often here it said, "I
ought not to havo gone orit' so thinly

protractedly," "I ought not to have eaten
such and such things, or at such and such

Thb Naval Rbvibw.—An article in
one of the loading South Russian
papers, tho writer of which I know to
be a distinguished naval authority,
describes the recent British naval review. Speaking ellegorically, it says
that England lias bared her -strong
right arm to tlie maritime world for
the purpose of convincing Europe
that her tremendoua striking power is
not impaired by one single relaxed
muscle or fibre. The writer goes on
to say that the seamen of no other
nation are trained, or are capable of
being trained, to such a lnngnificont
standard of perfection.—Kiissiim Coir.

Thb Automatic Pbbfokatoh.—Mr.
Robt. Kennedy leaves to-morrow for
New York and Philadelphia to perfect arrangements for the introduction
of the automatic perforator lately invented and patented by the Messrs.
Kennedy Bros. While at Sau Francisco Mr. Kennedy hod a few of the
machines made and attached them to
some of the presses in the large printing establishments. They were, vory
highly spoken of by printers, nnd pronounced just the thing that the craft
has been looking for during the last
hundred years. We have to congratulate tiie Kennedy Bros, upon the prospective fruits of their mental industry,
and hope they may realize from the
invention even more than their highest
expectations,
Still Anotiibr.—Our cotemporary
of the Victoria Times takes exception
to the remark made by the Columbian
some days ago, that until a few months
ago it was tho only British Columbia
journal that came out squarely on the
question of disallowance. The Timet
claims that it has "frequently expressed opinions adverse to the centralising polioy of the Dominion authorities." We presume by this our
cotemporary means to convey the impression that he has expressed opposition to the disallowance policy, and
we frankly accept the correction. It
follows, then, that of the 9 newspapers
published in British Columbia at least
4 have expressed themselves decidedly
opposed to disallowance, and we know
of only one (the Herald) which defends
that policy.
Tub Coming Race,—It is said that
more money has boen bet oh the approaching international yacht race on
the Atlantic than has ever been put
on nny'single event. The bets are
estimated up among the millions, nnd
tlio books are not all made up yet.
Of courso Hourly all American sporting
men arc putting their money on the
Volunteer, while the British back up
their own yacht, the Thistle. When
the Thistle first presented herself in
New York harbor there was a Very
unanimous opinion that she would be
badly beaten, Thu impression ha*
undergone cJMuidetable modification
of late, howeier, and those who are
•uppoeed to Ul judges now sgrae that
it will be n vertr close race. It is said
that the builders of the Thistlo have
borrowed largely from American ideas
of naval architecture, anil no matter
which wins, it will be claimed as a
victory for the American model.
. The Hosb Contest. -Most of our
citizens will be suprised to learn that
the hose reel contest to-day was won
by Vancouver. When tho contest took
place at Vanoouver some time ago our
company lost first place, but it was
•aid that it* defeat was the result of
more accident. From all that had
been said on the street* one would infer thtt there wa* almost a certainty
of the Hyack* winning. Yesterday
afternoon the contest was to have
taken place at 4:30. At that hour a
large number of people assembled on
Front st. to witness the sport. But
scarcely anything at all was done to-
wards forwarding the business on hand
until about an hour had elapsed. During that time two citizens of Westminster were continually going up and
down among the crowd with a roll of
bank notes in their hands shouting and
swearing and challenging unybody to
bet on the Vancouver teem. The conduct of these men was simply disgraceful, and as no attempt appeared to be
nude to silence them or remove them
out of the way, many persons in the
crowd became thoroughly disgusted
and left. It would be a great deal
more satisfactory if preliminary arrangements could be mode before tho
time set for such an event comes, and
not waste over an hour and exhaust
everybody's patience with that whioh
has no public interest nt all. We can-
net congratulate the lire company
upon the way in which it managed the
contest, and we must say the police
authorities ouglit to have promptly
protected the people from auch unbecoming conduct as wat indulged in by
the two or three person* who teemed
so anxiou* to appear a* champion* for
the Hyack*. If they lost their monoy,
no one will very much regret It

The Hose Reel Usee.
The hose reel race between Wcstmius*
ter and Vancouver firemen, advertised
to take place yesterday, was postponed
last evening until this morning. The
weather was very disagreeable this
morning. Heavy rain had been falling
since daylight. Nearly everybody present was provided with umbrellas and
rubber ooats. The race took place on
Front st., near Kwen's wharf. Long before tbe race the uniforms of the firemen
were soaked with water, but it did not
seem to daunt their enthusiasm lu the
least. Before the raoe Westminster was
the favorite, 2 to 1.
Vanconver was the first to run. Previous to the race they had overhauled
the hoso and placed new washers at all
couplings. At tbe word go they started
off at a great pace and reached the 600
feet mark with the real In 30 seconds.
Quickly the different men ran to the
joints and uncoupled and coupled,
when everything was finished the refereo
called the time 1 min. and |18 sec.
When tested with 120 lbs. pressure the
hose was found to be leaking at throe
joints and the judges decided to add six
seconds, thus leaving the time at 1:24.
The Westminster men then took their,
place at the starting point. They were two'
seconds longer in running and one In
coupling than their opponents, and their
time was 1:27. Vancouver was then
adjudged the winner. Wo believe 1
min. 20 sec. is the best time ever made
by crack companies In the east It
would thus seem that Vanconver has
beaten the record.
