Tho London In nor Circle Hail-
road is a marvellous feat of ongi
iinoriug skill, saya the Philadelphia
Prim It runs throughout its entire distance under the busiest centre of the largest oity in the world,
and the operations attending the
'excavations and construction have
proceeded without serious injury to
or interruption of business or traffic.
Quickmimls bave had to be passed
through, beds of old rivers span nad,
. lofty wuruhoiises nnd maasive build*
ingH secured while their foundations
have been undermined, and an intricate network of gas and water pipes
sustained until supports hnd been
applied to them from below. Added
to this, the aix main sewers had several times to bo reconstructed. Day
und night the work haa been oarried
on for 18 months, ami now the engineers are able to announce that their
tunnel is complete. The laying of
tbe rails and the building of the
stations are the only portions of the
immense work that remain to be
done, and in a very short time trains
will be passing over tbe whole of
this wonderful subterranean road.—
Chicago Journal of Commerce,
The wail that there is "no open*
ing for women" in business is not so
common as it is in the Old Country,
but it is occasionally heard even
here. Ladies who complain that
time perforce lays heavily upon their
hands "should take a leaf out of the
book of theit American cousins, lt
ts a note-book—the shorthand writ*
ei's note-book—to which they should
direct their attention," says a contemporary. It is into the law courts
that the American ladies have thrust
their gentle presence. Taking down
the speeches of other persons they
Hnd co be quite uu pleasant, and
much more profitable than speaking
themselves. There is a clever young
dressmaker who oast away her pins
and needles, bent her energies to
shorthand, and in lees than a year
could write one hundred and fifty
words a minute. She hus found her
right sphere. Three other ladies are
mentioned who earn munificent incomes with their pens. Mrs. Sarah
Grasby, who travels through seventeen counties with the assize courts,
earns $9,000 a year; Mrs. J. It
Palmer, of TJtin, $8,000 a year;
and Miss Jane Ballantyne, of Rochester, $5,000 a year.—The Week

Thomas Colt has recently been
discharged from Bellevue Hospital,
this city, with a restored nose. He
was deprived of his nose a number
of years ago by a cancerous affection
technically called lupus, which destroyed the nasal boue as well as the
fleshy covering, and even tho lower
eyelids. His treatment was undertaken over ten years ago by Dr.
Thomas Sabine, the Professor of
Anatomy of tho College of Physicians and Surgeons, and has been
successfully pursued up to the pre
sent time. Dr, Sabine, firat addressed
himself to the task of arresting the
disease, and when that was accomplished he restored the lost eyelids
by grafting thereon healthy skin
taken from tbe cheeks und forehead
of the patient. The more difficult
operation of restoring tho nose foi
lowed. This was done by making
use of the third linger of the left
hand, from whioh the nail was firat
removed by nitric aoid. Then the
end of the finger was fixed against
the forehead between the eyes, the
epideimis at the points of contact
having been previously removed to
bring about adhesion. At the same
time the finger up to the second joint
was split open on tho under side,
the flesh stripped off, and the flaps
thereby produced were connected
with the flesh of the cheek on either
Bide. The hand was fixed in proper
position by plaster of Paris, and held
so until the adhesion was complete.
Then the finger was amputated at
the second joint, und the free edges
of the part adhering to the face were
arranged so as to form the wings of
tbe nostrils. During all this time
the nasal orifice was kept open by a
hard rubber tube. Tha treatment
necessarily occupied much time, and
Involved a number of painful opera*
tions, but was completely successful,
and it is almost impossible now to
distinguish the nose thus fashioned
by surgical skill from one oast in
Nature's own mould. — Scientific
American, New Xdrk
Eight hundred intelligent and educated Englishmen, even if they had
no special knowledge of science,
oould nut travel thousands of miles
through Canada with their eyes open
without learning much ubout the
country of which no misrepresenta
tions can in future deprive them. It
will be their own fault if they do
not cany away with them a considerable stock of positive knowledge
regarding the country and its resources. The papers read hefore the
British Association, not alone by
Canadians but also by specialist
among themselves, would greitly aid
the enquiries of those who desired
to make the trip to the Rooky Mountains something more than a holiday
exoursion. As a result, Canada
must become better known in England than ever before. ' The special
knowledge obtained by each individual visitor will have a tendency to
spread and be absorbed among, his
intimates. The , visitors must ~ become convinced that there exiBt^in
tlie. North-West a vast field for hu-
migrants. Hitherto Australia has
attracted the better class of .emit
grants, And though the tide may
continue to flow in that direction, it
may flow wiib feebler force. The
claims of Canada cannot fait to find
among our visitors on their return
some volunteer advocates whose personal convictions will be their sole
motive to speak. If they recommend persons in search of land to
cultivate to seek it in Canada they
will do so chiefly because they believe such ndvice will be for the
benefit of the emigrants. Scarcely
any event which could have happened would have done so muoh to
make Canada known in England as
the meeting of the British Association in thia country; the knowledge of possibilities is even .more
important than of actualities—of the
future than the present. The desert
prairie over whieh so many of them
will pass is nothing as a possession;
as a possibility it is full of promise
which may give rational life to hope,

An Astonished Wild Duck.
A Manitoba paper tells of an ingenious method of securing a Block of
hens practiced by a bachelor who Uvea
in a secluded corner of the hills, distant from neighbors. Discovering the
nest of a wild duck near his shanty,
he removed the eggs und placed an
equal number of hen's eggs in the nest,
Iu due time the wild duck found that
she was the bewildered mother of a
flock of chicknns; she did nut know
what they wore. The bills were not
right, tho feet were all wrong, and
thoy were of every color; ther could
not swim and could not understand.
A more astonished wild duck was hbt
to be found in all Manitoba. The
bachelor placed his misbegotten chickens in a basket, and took care of thein,
while the old duck returned to a neighboring pond feeling that she had in
some way been awfully imposed upon.
Glue, Paste, or Mucilage.
Lehner publishes the following formula for making a liquid paste or glue
from starch and acid. Place five
pounds of potato starch in six pounds
of water, and add one-quarter pound
of pure nitric aoid. Keep it in a warm
place, stirring frequently fnr forty-
eight hours. Then boil the mixture
until it forms a thick and translucent
substance. Dilute with water, if
necessary, and filter through a thick
cloth. At tbe same time another paste
is made from sugar and sum urabic.
Dissolve five pounds gum arable and
one pound of sugar in five pounds of
water, and add one ounce of nitric
aoid and heat to boiling. Then mix
the above with the starch paste. The
resultant paste is a liquid, does not
mold, and dries on paper with a gloss.
It is useful for labels, wrappers, and
fino bookbinder's use. Dry pocket
glue is made from twelve parts ot glue
and five parts of sugar, the glue is
boiled until entirely dissolved, the
sugar dissolved in the hot glue, and
the mass evaporated until it hardens
on cooling. Tho hard substance dissolves rapidly in lukewarm water, and
is an excellent glue for use on paper,

All for Nothing.
"Did you ever get scared half to
death for nothing?" asked a clerk in a
down-town store, who hnd just returned from his vacation, "Well, I
did, and I will tell you about it. Out
where my folks live thero is a railroad
bridge of the old trestle stylo. It is
about forty feet high, and crosses a
valley only, there being uo water under it. When I was a boy I used to
walk that bridge day or night, and
the other evening I wanted to. go
across, and started out. just as I used
to do. When I got about half way
ovor I heard a train coming, aud, seeing I could not reach the other end,
I let myself down under tho stringers
and hung by my hands aa Z have dono
a hundred times when a boy. Somehow my anna are not aa strong as they
used to be, and they ached long bo
fore the train came. In my haste I
got into an uncomfortable position
before it was necessary. Finally the
locomotive struck the bridge and at
last went thundering over my head.
My hold was weakening every minute,
and I soon realized that I could not
hang on much longer, I believe that
train wai a mile long. Tho perspiration fairly streamed from me as I
thought' of the awful plunge I must
soon mako. Then my head reeled,
and my norvolesa fingers slipped frum
the stringer, and down I went—about
six inches. They had been filling in
the old trestle with earth, intending to
making au embankment there, and I
had nut noticed it in the darkness.
If yuu fellows see any gray hairs in
those auburn lucks of mine yuu will
know how they cot thero."—Chicago

Extraordinary Valuations.
At the government salo of city
lots last Saturday the auctioneer
stated that where improvements
had been made the value of im-
movements would bo added to the
upset price and must be paid by the
purchaser to the person who had
made the improvements.- The first
lot offered is situated near tlie Dominion sawmill, and ia valuable
propei ty. But this lot hns been
filled in with alabs and sawdust by
the mill people, ami used by them
us a place for piling lumber. The
auetiuneer stated that these improvements had been valued at $510, and
that whoever purchased the lot
would have to pay this valuation
to Mr. Webster. Tho consequence
was that this lot went to Mr. Web
ster at the upset price, $500. No
person elso would buy it under such
conditions. The next lot was in the
same position, bnt the claim for improvements on it amounted to $765!
It ->:ont like the first. It is the
opinion of overy person whoso opinion we have heard that thia is a very
great piece of injustice. The sawdust and slabs which wero thrown
upon these lots do not add to tlieir
commercial value ut all; indeed it is
an objection. No person could build
upon them without first taking ofl*
the rubbish, because it could never
be used aa a foundation, Tlio mill
people were squatters, and filled up
the lota for their own convenience.
Moreover, they have been using
theso lots for yeais without paying
any rent, while at the same time
they paid u considerable rent to private individuals for the use of adjoining lots. The improvements, so
far as adding value to the lots, wore
no improvements at all, nnd tin-
claim of $1270 put in by Mr. Webster and allowed by the valuators i«
just so much money tnkon out of
tho provincial treasury and handed
to the mill people. We believe it is
propei to encourage industries, and
if the govornment had mado a freo
gift of these lots to the mill company it might linve been » wise
thing. But to say that the lots
were improved to the amount of
$1275 by unking them a dumping
place for mill refuse is too utter.,,
absurd to be put forward with sincerity. Wo nro satisfied the government hns been imposed upon in this
matter, and has lost nearly 15 per
cent, of the entire proceeds of the
Bale through somebody's folly.
or America. It contain!; no end of
booty which a hunch army would
delight to possess . The prospect of
rich spoils woull ensure soldiers
enough to take die chances. Once
within tho walls, of Pekin, France
could diotate he* own terms of
pence; and sho -vould make these
terms such ns vould fully recoup
her for the risks and losses of the
campaign.
On to Pekin.
If- it be true, as stated among our
telegrams elsewhere, that Admiral
Courbett deems it necessary to tho
French campaign in China that the
Frenoh forces should take possession of Pekin, there is every probability that the movement against
Pekin will bo ordered. Franco hns
tasted the glory of victory, and Iter
national vanity will bo suro to play
an important part in her movements.
It may be bad policy to push ttie
Chinese campaign just now, whon so
many uncertainties present thein*
selves in other quarters; but reason
must step down when the enthusiasm
whieh comes from even trivial success takos possession of Frenchmen,
The capture of Pekin will bo serious
work compared with anything France
has yet undertaken in China, It
will bo thu battle which follows a
skirmish. But if seriously resolved
upon, we have no doubt thut Fruticc
is ablo to occupy tho Chineso capital, and will do it. It has often
been said that China's undoubted
development in recent years makes
'her quite a formidable foo even to a
European power. China's progress
has certainly been substantial, nnd
her ability to carry on a campaign
must have grently improved; but it
is not possible within a brief period
to emancipate n nation from superstition and ignorance to a first-claw*
position in tho great family. The
process of civilization required centuries in Europe: it will take decades nt. least in China. So far tho
Chinese have shown themselves to
be no match for the French. They
way have improved weapons of
warfare; they mny be officered by
experienced leaders; bat the cool
counge .which comes from intelli-
genoe and discipline is wanting.
They are reckless of their own lives:
bnt thuy do not understand the art of
selling their lives for the lives of
their enemies. One Frenchman
will put a hundred Chinamen to
flight, end will kill a down without
risk to himself. Pekin is a prize of
no email attraction, lt is the depot
of accumulated wealth of a nation
mom populous than any in Europe
Purifying Water.
Tho secretary of the New Orleans,
water works has invented a very
simple method of purifying wnter
which may be both interesting and
useful to our readers. It is a fact
well known tlint iron of uny kind
thrown into wnter will settle and
clarify it Jn somo way, not yet
explained, foreign matters held in
solution by ;ho water are precipitated, and tie water becomes clear
as crystal. Mr. Gardner, whoso in
vention is a practical application of
this well-known fact, gives the following account of his tcBt: "St.
Louis has very large settling basins,
four in number, with an aggregate
capacity of somo 70,000,000 gallons. Our reservoir hns also four
basins, but their total capacity is
less thnn 4,000,000 gallons. I wanted to test my method upon the
largest scale possible. To this ond
I consulted Col. Whitman, the
wnter commissioner of St. Louis',
one of the most eminent engineers
and waterworks men in the country.
His interest in the matter led him
to invito mo to St. Louis, and to
tendor mo the uso of one of his
Bottling bnsina for the purposo of
exemplification on a largo scnlc.
Tho basin nssigned mo could not be
drawn entirely clear of wuter. It
contained, on its delivery, nbout
3,250,000 gallons of muddy water.
To this we added over 9,500,000,
mnking a total of ovor 12,750,000
gallons. It required six hours of
sternly pumping by the pond', ous
machinery of the St. Louis works to
accomplish this. Three hours after
tho pumps ceased work on our basin
the water presented n con trust lo
that in the contiguous basins which
wns highly complimented by the
mayor of St, Louis, by tho water
commissioner, his asPiHtunt, and
others who witnessed it. At sunrise next morning lie water wns
clear as crystal. TI e solution of
iron wns poured from a pitcher by a
mnn standing over the supply pipe
in n proportion which hnd been calculated of one quarter of a pound
cf the solution to 8,500 pounds, or
ilons of water. Tho proportion is practically infinitesimal,
und even strychnine in such n dil-
lotion would be, I imagine, liarni-
. There now retnnitiS the investigation of the chomist and his
comparative! qualitative and quantitative nnnlysk This hns been
promptly entered upon. If intelligently conducted, of ! have no doubt
it will be, I have no doubt of a
favorablo report, Th. cost of this
method is anywhere from three quarters of a cent to a cent and a quarter per 1,0 0 gallons. The cheapest method I filtration in t!ie United States,. o fnr as T know, is over
three conts per 1,000 gallons, und
this with irregulni- results." There
is abundance cf wuter flowing for*
ever past the feet of this city, and
we aro grently in need of efficient
water works. Mny it not bo possible some day to supply the city
from tho Fraser with pure crystal
water!
The Methodist  Church and
Temperance.
Kurron Colombian,—*By order of tho
Victoria aud Now Westminster Diiitriot
of the Methodist Church, 1 have to request that yon will kindly publish, for
general information, the following report
on temperance, adopted \vy tlio Toronto
convcution, re-written and adapted to
provhieinl readers.   Yours, ftc,
K.   ItOIWIIN*.
REPORT OH TEMPERANCE.
We wonld at this important period in
the history of Methodism in Canada, reaffirm tho sentiment, teaching and attitude of onr hrauch of tho Glurtstian
Church in reference to that question,
which, considered in all its boarings.may
lie regarded as the question of tho day,
vis.) Temperance, The sentiment of our
church still is: "It is good neither to
cat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any*
thing whereby thy brother Btumbloth, or
is encoded, or if* made weak." Her
teaching Ib: "Neither fornicators nor
idolaters, nor adulterers, effeminate, nur
abusers of theinselvei witli mankind, nor
thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards,
nor revelers, nor extortioners shall Inherit the Kingdom of Cod." "Woe unto
him that givetli his neighbor drink, that
nuttest thy bottlo to him, that makest
iii i ti drunken also, that thou mayest look
on their nakedness.'1 Her attitude is
ono ot uncompromising hostility to all
that can intoxicate, and to wliatover
a(*ency, individual or organized, puts tho
temptation of the wine cup in tlm way of
mon or women, especially of tho young
aud those who havo become weak by in*
diligence Methodism has, sitieu the
days of Wesley, regarded the liquor
traffic ab, practically, a sin against Cod
nnd a crime against humanity, As a
church, we arraign and condemn the
manufacture, sale, and use of intoxicating liquors as a beverage, We consider
it to be the duty of the State to prohibit,
instead of licensing any social or moral
evil. We gratefully acknowledge the
existence and philanthropic labors of tho
vnrioiis organizations for the suppression
of this great evil, and pray that ench of
them may have tho direction of infinite
whdom and the benediction of bound*
leu griiue,   Wa would especially men
tion the "Woman's Christian Temperance
Union," which by ita self-denying labors
haa dono so much te reclaim the drunkard, restore to home its happiness, and
lead lost souls to the Saviour. To sum
up: (1) We regard tho liquor traffic as
antagonist io to, and destructive of the
best interests, material, social aud moral,
of our country. (2) Wo believeprohibi-
tion to be the true remedy for this evil,
(3) Wo consider tho prevailing sentiment, ami the extraordinary efforts now
being put forth by tlio people, irrespective of creed, sex ov party, as presenting
convincing evidence that the proper time
for enacting a prohibitory measure has
come, and believing the "Canada Temperance Act" to be the best available
moans of accomplishing this object, we,
the ministerial and lay members of the
Toronto Conference of the Methodist
Church, do pledge ourselves heartily to
unite in evory lawful effort to pass and
enforce this measure, (4) We would suggest more systematic church work in the
cause of temperance, by the frequent and
earnest presentation of tho subject from
tlio pulpit and the circulation of temper-
onco literature aud total abstinence
pledges in tlie congregations, Sunday
schools, nnd homes of our people. (5)
Wo strongly recommond tlie use of un-
fermented wine at tho sacrament of the
Lord's Supper, in all our congregations.

Thb Hop Crop.—And now conies
tho report that the enormous hop crops
of King and Pierce counties will suffer for want of pickers. It is estimated
that it will require 12,000 persons for

and that less than 5,000 can be found.
In many lucidities the yield is from
3,800 to 4,000 lbs, ner aore. In tho

Railway Matters.—A correspondent of tho Kamloops Sentinel, whu
writes from Yale, says : "The railway
ia now busy; mails three times a .veok,
which is an improvement on the handcar system; but the railway people
mnv show about as much respect for
hor majesty's mails ns they do for her
leige subjects ns passongeis. Last Saturday afternoon the train arrived here
with the mail, threw it on the platform
of the station, where it lay exposed 'to
the elements. Fourteen bags lay till
the noxt day (Sunday) when the tram
took all on board. When the train got
abovo Reefer's station, nine oars ran
off tho track; somo damage'was done
but no one hurt. Started again and
got to Spenco's Bridge. Returning the
noxt day it got off the rails uguin, when
the locomotive and seven cars woro
thrown off the track, so tho train did
not anivo here till 10o'clock on Monday night. On the 1.0th an engine
broke down on Texns Lake, was badly
smashed and then brought up hore for
repairs. On the 12thas a timber train
was coming down about 5 miles above
here, it ran into Cataline's mule train
and killed 4 or 6 animals."
The tenacity with which people abido

(('orrespoiideiico of tlie Columbian.)
Clinton, Sept. 23,—The weather for
the last three weeks was unusually wet
and has prevented farmers from gathering in a lurge crop of grain and hay.
A few, bofore the wet weather Bet iu,
were fortunate in finishing harvest. A
week or ten days of fair weather would
have been sufficient to make all right.
Four prospectors loft hero last July to
explore the country northeast of Cariboo. They were all experienced men
who prospected Nevada, and were welt
qualified for scaling the Selkirks. They
reached and explored places which
doubtless had never before been trod
upon by the feot of whito men. Thero
were bear nnd caribou in abundance;
and they report great ledges of quartz
but all were destitute—destitute of a
Bihglo color. Such men deserve more
aid, those who Brave the hardships of
the explorer. Their leader is confident that quartz is in this country,and
ia sanguine that it will be rich in ore,

Wm. Boyd, late Superintendent of
roads, and an old resident of the interior! has just returned from a visit to
Ms friends in Stratford,Ont. He looks

The Mowat Reception.
Referring to the reception which
was given to Hon. Olivor Mowat, premier of Ontario, on his nrrival at Toronto from England on tho 10th inst.,
the Globe says'. Spectators who stood
at thu comer of King and Yonge
streets wero privileged to aee a sight
well worth remembering. The streets
were lined with thousands of people
eager to got a sight of the procession,
and evory available window was filled
with spectators. No description can
give un adequate idea of that wonderful triumphal progress. As far ns the
eye could see up Yonge street, and
along King to York streets, waving
banners flouted over a dense and compact column four deep. No gaudy
uniform was required to add to the
grandeur of the spectacle; fur no uniform could have added dignity, tu the
faces stamped with the impress of
honesty and intelligence which passed
in review. Above them flouted banners with inscriptions which voiced the
grateful and exultant emotions of tho
peoplo of Ontario at the glorious victory obtained by Ontario's premier.
The young men led the procession,
and woll up to the fore were the Oxford men, showing by their banners a
just pride in tho honor of representing
the political home of the premier. A
band of pipers marched witli this part of
tho procession. The young men of Oxford mnde a separate division. Toronto
followed with a good turnout, and
then camo the other counties in alphabetical order. The Welland deputation brought up the rear, and then the
mounted escort rode past, and Mr.
Mowat's carriago appeared. Hats
flew up, and loud cheers and acclamations greeted tho champion, who, with
Mr. Mackenzie beside bim, sat bowing
and returning as well as he could the
enthusiastic greetings of the vast assembly. Then came tho squad of
horsemen, and last of all a long line
of carriages filled with prominent Reformers, most of them residents of
the city. The procession, whioh
marched iu fours, took fifty-five minutes to pass a given point. By actual
count it was ascertained that between
twetvo and thirteen thousand people
took part iu the procession. Tho head
of the column turned into the pnrk
along Yonge-streut Avenue, and the
ranks opened out. The honored guests
then drove through, preceded by the
famous 13th Battalion Band, of Hamilton, nnd amid the cheers of the
thousands who lined the avenue..
AT THK PARK.
Long before tho arrival of the procession a vast throng had assembled
in the park. In every direction was
outspread a vast billowy sea of human
heads, surging, straining and struggling
towards the stand. As the procession
appeared in Bight a great crowd came
with it, crowding it upon every side,
still the parade was orderly, imposing,
and provocative, as one.glanced nlong
its fur-reach ing dimensions, its gleaming banners, the hurrying marshals,
nnd heard the music of thu bunds and
pipers, of the most intotiso enthusiasm.
The procession entered from the avenue, hied nlong the eastern Bide of the
park, the advance guard halting opposite pedestal uf George Brown's monument. Tho vast multitude erowded
compactly together reached awuy
around to thu ontruuee from tho avenue and along the aveuiiu out of sight.
With bands playing nnd banners flying
the processionists then awaited the
arrival uf tho distinguished hero of
the occasion and the eminent statesman who accompanied him. As the
premier, preceded by tho mounted do-
tachtnont, made his appearance, a
great wave of enthusiasm swept along
tho lino of waiting thousands, and a
grent spontaneous cheer went up from
thu multitude and out uver thu park.
Again and again was the cheering renewed as the carriages made their wuy
around tho half circle formed by the
multitude uf processionists, Thu
Hon. Edwnrd Blake, Hon. Alex. Mackenzie, Hon. L. S. Huntington, thu
Ontariu ministers, and eminent personages iu the carnages were also
greeted again and again with ringing
cheers as they were recognized along
the line. As Mr. Mowat alighted
from his carriage and ascended the
platform he was greeted with tumultuous applause, the bands meantime
playing''TheCouqucringHeroCumes.''
The premier mado his way slowly
around the stand, bowing his acknowledgments and demonstrating his silent appreciation of the enthusiastic
welcome accorded him, Mr. Blake,
as he stepped uppon the platform and
was recognized by thousands in tho
great audience, received a no less hearty reception, and was also called upon
to bow his acknowledgments from nil
parts uf tho compass. Hon. Alox.

on the platform. Some difficulty was
experienced by the crowd, owing to its
vast proportions, as not only the processionists, who numbered over 12,000,
but also thousands who came up to the
park after the procession had passed,
and' thousands who were already there
awaiting the procession, were all getting into position at once. Altogether
nut less than fifty thousand could have
been present to hear the addresses.'

The Provincial Exhibition.
The first day of the provincial show
at Victoria was extremely disagreeable,
as it rained all day. The weather was
much botter uu Saturday. It ib estimated that about 1000 persons visited
the show on Friday, and 1400 on Saturday. As a whole, the exhibition ib
pronounced quite a success, and a substantial improvement upun laat year.
The display of agricultural products

timt, for assistance. He left her at 10
o'clock and returned with assistance at

Admiral Courbet expressed the opinion
that while the (ecupution of Ko Lung
and the island of Formosa will bave a
certain amount of favorable influence for
the French flag In China, yet he believ

actual occupation of the Chinese capital
by French troops will suffice to compel

demands made by the French government,
Boston, Scut. 20.—About 3,000 persons wont to Voiut of Pines this afternoon to witness the sculling content between Wallace Ross and Jno, Teenier,
postponed from Saturday, The stakes
were a purse ot $2,000, for which the
contestants were compelled to traverse a
course 1) miles long 4 times, or a total
distance of f> miles. Ross was given a
start of 5 seconds. Teenier was the
favorite in betting circles to-day. The
men wero placed at 5,22 p. m. ami 40
seconds later tho word was given Ross,
aud 5 seconds later word wus given to
Teenier. Ross was a gootl 3 lengths to
the fore when bis youthful competitor
dipped bis blades, and was doing good
30 strokes to the minute, which was just
tbe stroke. sot by Teenier. The latter
was getting most speed nut of Ids shell,
and tn twenty strokes had lessened Ross'
lead by half n length. Ross steered a
beautiful course, while Teenier went
wide, losing half way to first stake newly
20 lengths by being swept towards Lynn
harbor by the incoming tide Ross suffered likewise from the same cans--, but
not so much us Teenier. Theuce to the
turn Toemer continued to gain, and when
Ross rounded bis stake be was uot more
than 3 lengths ahead. Thence to the
starting point both men alternately
gained ami last around, although Teemcr
on the wi.olc had tho best of the spurts,
28 strokes to the minute was about applied to each boat most of the time. As
the men returned to tho starting point
Ross was still in the lead by a leuutli,
and on rounding the stake added half a
length moro. Both men made good turn**.

put in their last and best work. Ross
had what advantage thero was, but
while looking over his shoulder to measure the distance to the finish, Teemcr
had put the prow of his shell on a Hue
with Ross; perceiving which, Ross mnde
a last desperate effort; but it was of no
avail; Teenier put on a terrific burst of
speed that actually jumped his boat
over tho lino from threo to six foet ahead.
Time given by official time-keeper wns
35 minutes; other watches made it 35:15
and 35,24. Tbo result is to exalt the
"boy wonder" in the estimation of Boston oarsmen above all competitors.

Patient—"Worse and worse. I've
had the shakes awfully every day."
"I can't understand that. Did you

shakes come instead of after."

"It did not say bo on the bottle."
"Ci-iisum those druggiata. What

"Shako well hefore taking.''
It is Natural.— It is natural for
some people to be bilious, being often a
result of peculiar bilious temperament,
which with high living, too greasy food,
indigestion from inactive liver, is tbe
trequent cause. The remedy, above all
others, is Burdock Blood Bitters. It is
highly curative for all biliary complaints,
and fir better than physic for inactive
conditions of the boweb.

aTemamableItory,
. "It iB delightful to see how tliat
child enjoys herself," he said, "flattered in spite of himself, "though it's
no very intoxicating amusement, we
furnish her." Captain Morgan was
very soft-hearted, and understood by
his affections aa woll as with his under-
standing, but in this case something
beguiled hirn, porhaps a' Little complacency, perhaps want of thought.
When Hestor ran in, in the dark,
locking the door of the veranda behind
her, Mra. John had gone up-stairs, and
was going to bed. Sho was chilly and
"cross," her daughter thought, who
ran up quickly to her full of apologies.
"We. got. talking," Bho Baid; "you
muat forgive me, mother. The captain'j stories run on so, ono into another, one forgets how the time runs
on too."
"I wish," said Mra. John, with the
tears very near tho surface, "that your
mother was sometimes as amusing as
the captain." It was the greatest reproach she had addressed to her daughter for years.
"Oh, mother! If I had thought yop
minded," cried Hester, with wondering eyes.
Mrs, John was penitent nt once,
and did -her beat to make things up.
"I ought, not-to speak," she said,
"after all—for I was not so vory
lonely, Harry staid a long time and
kept' ihe company. It is only when
you bave him to yourself that you seo
how nice ho is."-
"Ia" he bo nice?'1 said Hestor, indifferently. "How lucky for him to tind
}'ou alone,", she ndded, with a littlo
augh.
"Oh, Hester, how can you say so?
As if it waa me ho came fori Whatever you may try to make yourself believe, you can't think that."
Hester made no reply. She slept iu
a small room within her mother's the
door of which alwaya stood open. She
had taken off her outdoor things nnd
let down her hair to brush it. It hung
about her in a cloud, running up into
curls as soon as she let it free. Mra.
John, seated in the easiest chair, sat
contemplating this operation with a
mixture uf pleasure and pain. Tlie
mass of eurls was pretty, but it was
not tho fashion. It was quite unlike
the smooth brown glossy locks that
had adorned her own head when she
was young. But Bhe said to herself
that it suited Hester, und gazed at her
child admiringly, yet anxiously, conscious of many things in which she
might be improved; her hair, for ono
thing; her waist, which was not' so
small aa Mrs, John's had. been in her
youth; and her nose, whioh waa a little too short. And yet with all these
defects she was pretty. When she waB
Harry's wife everybody would admire
her. Perhaps it was only because Bhe
was nut sufficiently seen that sho had
no niore admirers now.
"I had a great deal to say to you,
dear," Bhe said, "I don't grudge you
being away when you are enjoying
yourself, but I had many things to aay.
It ia not likely that Harry Vernon
oould sit with ine for hours for nothing."
"I suppose," said Hester, from the
midst of her curls, "that he finds it
dull now without Ellen at the White
House?"
"I could tell you a groat deal about
that," said her mother, quickly, eager
to Biezo an opening. But Hester
yawned with discouraging demonstrations of fatigue.
"Don't you think it wili keep till
to-morrow, mother? Wo had a long
walk, and I am sleepy, I think Harry
can't be vory urgent. To-morrow will
be time enough."
"Oh, Hester, how strange you are,"
cried Mra. John; "so pleased with
those old people, so ready to listen to
all their old stories; but when I begin
to talk to you of a thing that is of the
greatest importance—"
"Nothing concerning Harry Vernon
oan be of great importance to mo,"
cried the perverse girl; and then sho
tried to turn off her wilfulness with a
laugh. "The beauty of the captain's
stories is that they are of no import
unce, mother. Vou can have them
when you please. It is like going to
a theatre, or reading a book."
"I am not so clever as the captain,
to interest you," Mrs. John said.
There was' a plaintive tone in her
voice with which Hester was very well
acquainted, and which betokened un
inclination to tears. She came and
kissed her mother, and gave her n few
of those half-impatient caresses which
generally soothed the poor lady. The
girl did not in the least know that any
consciousness was in Mrs. John's mind
of the superficial churacter of those
kindnesses. She waa not without love
for the tender domestic creature who
had been hers to use at her pleasure
ever since Bhe could recollect, but she
bestowed these kisses upon her aa she
would have given sweetmeats to a
child.
"Go to bed, mother. Don't mind
me. I will shut the door; you shall
not have fhe light in your eyea to keop
you from -deeping. Qo to bod, mamma, darling."
Mra. Juhn had liked this caressing
talk when Hester was a ohild. She
waa soothed by it still, though a faint
aenae that there was something liko
contempt in it hnd got into her mind
and sho could not struggle ugainst a
will whioh was ao much Btrongcr than
her own. But she could not nluap,
though she allowed horself to bo put to
bed. She could not help crying in the
night, and wondering what she could
do to be more respected, to bo moro
important to. her child; and then Bhe
prayed that 'she might be able to put
Harry before her in the best light, and
stopped and wondered whether it wero
right to, pray about a young man.
Altogether, Mrs. John had not a tranquil night.
But next morning alio made a great
effort to dismiss hor anxiety, to present heraelf at breakfast with a chour-
ful aspect, aud to get rid of that
plaintive tone which she was heraelf
aware ot, which she had ao often tried
to remedy. Instead of it she tried a
little jauntinesB and gayety, for extremes are always easy. It is the
juste-milieu which it is so difficult to
attain. r  ,
"I am afraid I scolded you last night,
Hester.' I was cross when you came
back. Oue can't, help being cross
when one ■ hoi a great many things to
lay and no audionce," ahe said, with a
laugh.
"I am very sorry, mamma. I did
not mean to stay so lato."
"Oh, it is nothing, my dear. I had
Harry; he aat with mo u long time.
He ii —really— very —entertaining
when you have him to yourself."
"Is he?" said Heater, demurely. "I
ihould not have expected that; but I
am very glad, mother, for your aake."
"Became I am likely to aee a great
deal of him in the future? Oh yos,
my dear.   I hope so, at leait.     Ho is
very kind to me.   Nobody hus spoken
so nicely of mu for many a year."
"I like him for that," said Heater,
honestly, yet with a blush of self-consciousness; for, porhaps, though alio
liked'him for it, it did not improve her
opiniun of Harry's intelloct, that ho
ahould find her nothur'a company so
congenial.
"Oh, you would if you know him
butter, Hester. He feels for mo in
my changed circumstances. You don't
know different things used to bo—what
a great deal people used to think'of
mo when I was yung. I don't complain, for, perhaps, it was silly of them,
but it ia a great change. But living
where he doos, in my house, you know,
Harry fuels that; he saya il is thero I
ought to be—in the White Huutso.
Even though nothing should over
come of it, it is nice that somebody
should think so."
"Unfortunately, nothing can ever
come of it," said Heater. "However
nice peoplo may be, they do not give
up their house tu you, or their living;
for you would need his money, aa well,
to be able to livo in the White
House."
"You say unfortunately, dear," said
her mother, with eagerness. Mra.
John blushed like a girl as she began
her attempt to hint out Harry's lovu-
talo to hur. daughter. She waB innocent nnd modest, though ahe was silly.
No talk about luvors, no "potty maxims" about marriage, had over offended Hester's eats. Her mothor blushed
and trembled when she felt herself
broaching the aubject to her child.
"Oh, Hestor, it would bo very easy,
very easy, to cease to be unfortunate
—if you choose, dear. All that part
of uur life might -ily away like a cloud
—tf you choose. We might be done
with poverty and dependence, and
thinking ol what Catherine will say
and whHt people will think. Thu
White House—might be yours, if you
liked; everything might be yours.
You would only have to say the
word."
Mrs. John's eyes tilled with tears.
Shu could not get to the end of a lung
speech, like this, without crying; and
aho was uo anxious, that they found
their way, also, into her voico.
"Mothor!" cried Hester, opening
wide hur eyes. They were vory bright
and clear; and when they oponed
widely looked almost unnatural in
their Bize. She was all the moro
startled that Bhe had never been subject to any auch representation before.
"I don't know what you mean," she
said. "What Bhould we do with the
White House? I think it is a vulgar,
staring place, and far too big."
"Don't speak bo, Hester; I can't
bear it. My own married homo that
your poor papa took ine tout"
"I beg your pardon, mother; I had
forgotten that. Of course, taste was
different in thoae days."
"Oh, taste! Your poor papa had
beautiful taste. There are some things
there that just break my heart—the
ormolu set that everybody admired bo,
and tbe picture of me over the mantelpiece in the little parlor. It used
to be in the drawing-room, but you
can't wunder at them changing it. The
hair was worn high then, on the top
of your head, and short sleeves. It
was very becoming to mo. And to
hear you call it vulgar and staring-—"
"It was a mistake, mamma. I did
not think what I waa saying. Forgive me, mother, dear!"
"You know I would forgive you
anything," cried Mra. John, now fairly launched, and forgetting all prudential restraint*. "But, oh, Hester, my
darling, when ho speaks lo you, don't
be hasty; think uf nil that is involved.'
I am not going to tell you what bo
wants to say—oh, no, he would never
forgive me. It ia he himself that
must tell you that. But, Hosier oh,
don't speiik hastily; don't answer ull
in a moment, without thinking. Often, often, a girl aays what Bhe is sorry
fur, nut being prepared. Think, my
darling, what it would be—nnt only to
be rich, but to be independent; to
have your uwn house, all your own,
and no charity; to bave as much money
aa you want, to be able to help the
poor and do everything you wish, and
to make me happy, oh so happy, to the
end of my days!"
It waB thus that Mrs. John treated
Harry's secret. She forgot all hor
precautions and her conviction that
from himself only tho proposal ought
to come. The dialogues ahe had invented, the long conversations with
Hester, which she had held in imagination, delicately, diplomatically leading
up to the main possibility, had all disappeared when the moment camo.
When she began to speak she had forgotten them altogether, and gune off
impromptu without recollecting a syllable of all that had been so painfully
prepared; and her own eloquence, if it
did not affect her daughter, affected
heraelf beyond description: her mouth
quivered, the tears flowed out of her
eyea. Heater, who could no more
bear to aee her mother cry (though she
had seen that sight often enough) thnn
to see the tears uf a child, rose from
her aoat, and coming round hurriedly
behind Mrs. John's chair, put her anna
caressingly round her, and laid her
cheek to that wet one. She was uot
so entirely unprepared but that she
understood woll enuugh what this emotion meant, but sho tried to look ns if
it had a different moaning altogether,
She drew her mother's head to her
1-roust and kissed her.
"Dear mothor! Is it really so bit-
tor to you to bedopendontj and you
novor lot mo know that you felt it,"
"What would havo boen the good,"
aaid the poor lady, "when we could
do nothing? Tho thing was to put the
bust face upon it. But now, when it
ia in your powor—"
"It alwaya was in my power," said
Hestor, with a mixture uf real earnest hobs and a desire to persuade her
mother thut she put a different meaning upon all that had beon aaid; "if
you had not stopped me, mothor. But
I havu nnt lost my accent, and if you
only givo your consent now—I nm
older, and peoplo will truat mo with
their children,"
"Oh, Hester, do not vex me bo,"
cried Mra. John. "Do you think that
iB what I mean? And, besides, if I
wero to give you leave to-morrow,
Catherine, you know, would never
consent,"
■'If you will trust me," said Hestor,
coloring high, "what Ohatherino
pleaaes shall not bo the last word."
Mra. John wrung her hands, drawing herself out of Heator'i arms to
gnze into her face,
"Oh, why will you make auoh a mistake? It ia nut that. I am not strong
to hold out against you, Hester, but
for your own sake. And Cathorino
would never let you do it. Oh, thia
is qutto a different thing, my dear love.
Not to work like nuy poor girl, hut to
be far abovo that—to have everything
that heart could desire. And all so
right, aud so nice and suitable, Hester.
If your dear papa had lived, and all
gune well, I could not have wished for
n better mutch."
