Qen. I'oulniiger feels hulled, not
to say rond, about some speech M.
Ferry has made, and is pining for
gore. What unmitigated bosh this
is. He wants to have it out with
pistols at twenty paces, a beastly
dangerous thing to do. They might
by chance hurt each other, and
what good would that do. Peg at
a black bottle, or flip • copper would
answer the purpose just as well.
These two hot heads should be laid
away on ice for awhile till the fever
works off.—Bobcaygeon Indeiiedenl.
Four inackprol vessels reached
Port liawkesbbry tlie other, day.
Three wero Americans and one was
a Nova Scotian. The last mentioned landed her fare, sent it forward
by rail, and prepared to return to
the fishing grounds. The Americans
went home. One of the three had
25 barrels, the result of four weeks'
fishing, anotliji- had taken 60 barrels in six weeks, while the .third
had only 10 barrels to Bhow for four
weeks' work. The Canadian had
also been fishing four weeks, and
had 103 barrels.—St John Sun.
Rustless iron is being manufactured in New York by a new process which, it is claimed, converts
the surface of the metal into magnetic oxide of iron. This is done by
subjecting it successively to the action of highly heated air and cardon-
ic oxide gas from coal fires. Tlie hot
air converts the metallic surface into red oxide of iron, which is then
reduced to black nr magnetic oxide
by the gas. This renders it rust
proof when exposed to the air or' to
fresh or salt water. The process
can be applied with most satisfactory results to water pipes and architectural work.-CViicajro Inter Ocean.
A model useful dairy cow may be
known at a'glance by an expert.
She has a lino long head, broad' between thereresf-and a thin, wide
muzzle; the eyes ore large, and of a
mild expression; tfo JtecttllttWhih
and long; the cars are thin and covered within with a deep yellow skin;
the forequartera are light and thin,
and the whole body has much the
shape of a wedge, increasing in size
to the rear; the legs are thin with
lino bones; the bellyjis large and
deep,with great capacity for food;
the back is broad and straight, and
the ribs are well rounded towards
the rear, the bones of the rump are
wide apart; the tail is long and thin;
the thighs are thin and are set widely apart; the udder is large and full,
especially behind; the teats are of
good size, and set far apart upon a
broad, level udder, ond the milk-
vein, so-called, which is the large
vein leading from the udder and
passing into the abdomen, and
which is an indication of the amount
of blood circulating through the
milk glands, and contributing to the
milk secretion, should be full and
tortuous in its course. A lino horn,
a deep, yellow skin, and a general
elegance of form, without any heaviness or beofiness in any part, are
also important indications of good
quality in a cow for tho dairy.—
Am. Agriculturist
Over 30,000 persons witnessed
at ('uiticy,lll., a jump from a balloon by Prof. Thos. S. Baldwin on
July 4th. Baldwin's original intention was to send the balloon up 2000
feet and hold it captive by a rope
and make tlie jump from that height,
and afterwards draw down the balloon and make a regular voyage.
Owing to the high wind which prevailed, tho rope scheme was abandoned. Baldwin ascended to the
height of one mile, and then holding his parachute, launched himself
into apace. Tho parachute is nu
umbrella shaped affair, with ribs of
cord, which are prolonged and fastened to a ring, to which the aeronaut
olings. It is made of silk, and is
eighteen feet in diameter. Tlie parachute was attached to the netting
of the balloon by a small cord, in
tended to be broken by the weight
of the aeronaut. Whontho jump was
made the parachute was closed, and
the first 200 feet the neronrut dropped like a rock. Then, as the parachute expanded, the speed became
less rapid, and the aeronaut and his
strange apparatus floated steadily
down like a bird. It was a beautiful sight. The decent was accomplished in three minutes and twenty
seconds. Baldwin struck the ground
with some force in a sliding manner,
but was not oven jarred by the
shock. The descent varied about a
quarter of a mile from the vertical,
and tho aeronaut reached the ground
a mile and a half from where the
ascent was made.

Au English' writer makes public
the startling information that ladies
in England who habitually play
lawn tennis are becoming decidedly
lopsided. The right shoulder, lie
maintains, is about two inches
broader than the left, and the muscles of the right arm and hand are
becoming abnormally developed at
the expense of the left. These per
sons also come to lean towards the
right, and present altogether such
an appearance of deformity as to
produce a painful impression upon
the mind of a critic. Lawn tennis is played with the right hand-
hence the unequal development of
the two sides. We suppose there
are only two things the ladies can
do—give up lawn tennis, or exercise
the left arm sufficiently to bring it
up to the development of the right.
Wouldn't it bo a good idea to practice tennis with both hands, so that
tha symmetrical proportions of the
form may be preserved!
The semi-annual edition of the
San Francisco Journal of Commerce
contains elaborate tables showing
the trade of that port for the first
six months of the current year.
According to these tables the total
imports for the half year at the
port of San Francisco wore valued
at $22,237,910. Of this $625,991
waa from British Columbia, and
$3,791,688 from Great Britain and
her possessions. The exports to
British Columbia amounted to $495,-
593, from which it will be seen that
our exports to San Francisco are
greater than our imports by $130,-
398. During the half year San
Francisco exported to Australia
$321,048, to Great Britain $7,547,-
916, to New Zealand $48,319, to
Russia $153,105, to Germany $33,.
806, to France $89,042, to Central
America $472,312, to China $1,324,-
659, to Sandwich Islands $1,620,-
881, to Japan $351,007, to Mexico
$752,666. The total foreign exports
amounted to $13,773,134, which is
$8,464,776 less than the imports.
It it a significant fact that of the
exports $8,417,863, or considerably
over one half, went to Great Britain
and her various possessions, The
imports for the first half of this
year wen about a million less than
for the same period of 1886.
It is stated that the Anthracite
Coal Co. is making arrangements to
deliver coal at Winnipeg for about
$8 a ton. The distance from Loth-
bridge (where the coal mines are
situated) to Winnipeg is as greet
M to Westminster, but the wont-
era section of the rood, being mountainous, is much more expensivo to
operate than the prairie section.
Allowing $2 por ton for the extra
cost, anthracite coal ought to be laid
down in this city at about $10 per
ton. If it can be laid down at that
figure then would be a considerable
demand here. The coal we get from
Nanaimo is of excellent quality,
and the price on the wharf is $7.
But the Nanaimo coal is bituuiin
ous, and is not suitable for many
domestic purposes. For open fires
it is all that could be wished, but
for stores it has the disadvantage of
producing large quantities of ash,
requiring a good deal of attention,
and rapidly filling up the pipes.
Tha anthracite coal is freo from all
these objections, and the quality of
that produced at Lethbridge is said
to bo nearly, if not entirely, equal
to the best American. We hope to
see the Lethbridge coal delivered in
this city at $10 per ton during the
fall, but if the owners of the mines
proposo to supply the Westminster
market it is time they were moving.
Before leaving Victoria Hon.
Thos, White had a conference with
the provincial cabinet when the following subjects were discussed, (1)
The appointment of county court
judges for Westminster, Nanaimo,
and Kamloops; (2) Immigration and
the necessity for immigration agon
cies on the mainland; (3) Importance of inaugurating an efficient
policy for the development of our

ful memoranda of these matters
with a tiew to laying them before

During his visit to this province
Hon. Hr. White has had his time

2«<IantLg-»r. HOW I WRITE MY SERMONS.
The heglnniiig of this "confession" must
hours striking resemblance to the celebrated h'rtiire thut everybody has heard
nbrriit on "Tlio Knrikes .of Ireland"—
" There are 110 snakes in Ireland." I am
linked to tell the readers of this magazine
how I write my sermons; and the first
point that I limit set down is the fact thot
I do not mile them at all.
For tlie (iivit threo yours of my preaching I wrote every word with the utmost
euro, for the simple, but stilHcicnt, reason
that 1 ctitiM not get courage to attompt
anything clue. Hut in those days,—as
ever since,—I was firmly tiersuaded that
the best results 'of preaching could be attained by speaking, and not by reading.
The lecturer, the lawyer, the campaign
speaker, the Member of Congress,—all
these would lose hull their power should
they attempt to rend their addresses.
This is nniveruily admitted. And I hnve
never seen any good reason for supposing
that human nature is essentially chil'crent
on Sunday from what it is ou the other
six days of the woek. An address is not
an essay; and though it docs not read so
woll In print, it may still proiluco tl greater
and u better eflect on the audience nt the
time. And that whicli is to be delivered
to an audience is liko n cannon bull—it
is to be judged by the execution it does
when discharged, not by an examination
of its quality afterwards. If one can combine both qualities in a sermon, all the
better; but tlie chief thing is its immediate
effect on tlio hearers'
Holding this faith, I determined to
translate it into works. My tiivt attempts
were not encouraging. My nudioncc, my
wifo, and my own disgust were alt against
me. But I had a little ol Ihe martyr
spirit in mo, and was willing not only to
suffer myself, but so see the audience suffer too lor a principle. Besides, I remembered how it was told of the old Dr. Tyng,
—a famous speaker,—that he said he
learned to speak "by spoiling six par.
ishes." I remembered also that Dr. Alexander, of Princeton, had said that the
way to teach a young man to preach was
Ihe same as that by which you teach a
puppy to swim—"pitch him lut" So 1
kept on.
For twelve years now,—though my
sermons hnvo all been published,—very
few of tlicm have been written. They
nro published from shorthand reports.
And generally no part of them is ever
written. I am often asked if I write and
commit my sermons to memory. This is
something I never did in my liie. lt
seems to me that one who does this is in
danger of appearing as if he were "speak
ing a piece. And, besides, unless one
has a better verbal memory than 1 have,
it would be an intolerable drudgery In
most'cases I write nothing, not even a
plan or sketch. It bothera me to have
my attention diverted by an effort to remember something that has been written
down.. I prefer everything on paper, or
nothing.
My method is first to bo sure tn my men
mind thnt I have something to say that
is important that people should hear.
This conviction is the basis of earnestness.
I cannot look an audience in the face
without it. Here, of course, I may be
mistaken, but I must do my best.
I decide on my subject as early In the
week as possible. Then, without much
worry over the matter, I let my mind
play about it at odd moments,—in inter-
vals of reading, study, parish work, or on
the street. It acts like a magnet, anil
draws all sorb of things to itself. The
mind seems to work sub-consciously, and
sometimes the whole scheme will emerge
'into consciousness complete and ready.
But I givo some definite time to earnest
and hard thought on the subject each
day,—by preference in the morning, when
I am freshest.
In thinking It out I pay no attention to
words. Bnt I think ont my line of
thought until I have it completely in
hand. I want it so that if an earthquake
should come in the middle of the sermon
I could climb up on the rails after fc »osr
over and continue the sermon at thefpoint
where I left off. I said I have a very
poor verbal memory; but if a line of
thought is logical, if one point naturally
follows another, I can remember this and
keep to it through an hour or two of
speaking.
In my opinion, the moot essential quality about either writing or speaking is
what I will call moment. It one is in
dead earnest after some definite end, and
is seen to be in motion, toward that end,
it is human nature to be interested in
seeing whether he get* there. But you get
tired of watching even a gorgeously-uniformed soldier, if he is only "marking
time."     ......
My lost word, then, to both speaker and
writer is this: Have some important end
in view: take the straightest (t.«., the
most logical) road that leads to it: and
ihen_o.-M.F.Savage,inuTheWriter."

For some yean many of the prominent
Southern cities have been trying to bring
cents into circulation, and desperate indeed hare been the efforts to accomplish
this. Several houses have declared in
favor of cents, to find their Introduction
far more difficult than was imagined.
One publisher imported barrels of tho
coins and put them forth, only to find
out that they returned in a very short
time. The idea ol carrying tho measure
through by one grand movement, all acting together, failed. Tho people woro
not acquainted with cents and refused
them; and many dealers, particularly
the small ones, with whom cents would
havo como into play aud who would be
most benefited by their circulation, hold
back. But although those spasmodic efforts failed, the end sought for is being
slowly but surely accomplished. The
cent, which could not bo fOrced suddenly
on tne community, is growing into favor.
A large number of houses aro now willing to accept it and make their chongo
accordingly, and tho public is beginning
to recognise that the cent is of somo value
after ull. Strango to say, as at the bo-
igiiiuingof this movement, the small deal-
era still hold back. Coppers will bo taken
in payment by almost any large dry goods
house, but the candy or banana peddler
on the corner opposite is very much
afraid of tho copper currency.; There
need be no fear, however, that tho cent
will not succed. The new coin has beon
introduced. It is no longer a novelty or
a surprise. Those who thought tliey
could suddenly spring It upon the community did not rocognizo the conservative nature of tho peoplo; did not appreciate the fact that even ao small revolutions as this can only be accomplished
with time and patience.
On the banks of the river Idle, between
Bawtry and Misson, a swan had built her
nest in a'hedge previous to the recent
serious floods. In Hay, and waa Bitting on
her eggs, when the water receded a
curious sight was presented, the nest hav-
ing been raised by the male and female
to the height of about three feet, to do
which they had to collect more than .
(large cart load of sticks, reeds, leaves
etc. Upon this elevated nest the swan
continued to sit—tho eggs having beer,
raised without injury—whilst the ina'.t
bird kept would-be intruders, who- wore
attracted by the light, at a respectful
distance.
FASHION NOTES.
—A good many flat white and black
leghorns are shown by the milliners.
The white nro trimmed with dotted point
d'csjr-rit'nnd white leathers.
* —Simple flowe r pinB, representing clematis, orchids, primrose, violets and pan-
sies, enameled in the natural delicate,
colors, as now worn', are in exquisite
taste.
—A made-up Windsor bow is one of
the season's novelties in neckwear. It
saves the trouble of tying, which prevents many people from wearing Windsor ties.
—The four-in-hand is drooping delicately to a modest size. Wide ties are
entirely passe, and two inches is the popular size. Even narrower widths will he
shown soon.
—An afternoon dress is of plain cam-
ol's-hair and plaited velvet; skirt of velvet made up bias; vest, rovers, ond
waist-edgo of velvet; cuff and handover
sleeve and collar of velvet.
—For men's outing dress, Knickerbocker trousers nro rapidly growing in
favor, and long stockings of tasteful designs nro this season a moro important
part of manufacturers' stocks than hitherto.
—French skirtings in linen and percale
are less startling than lost season, and the
tendency is toward quiet and genteel effects. Tliis does not apply to figures,
which are moro strongly colored than
over.'
-*The "white toilets" imported from
abroad aro no longer dead white, but are
really gray. A dress ordered from Paris
a few-weeks ago was composed of a soft-
pale jgray silk. Over this was a cloud of
grayish tulle, then another layer of a
lighter shade, and finally one of whito,
held in place by sash ends of the three
shades of tulle.
—Young lady's "dress of plaid suiting
and velvet is made with a very full
draped bock and slightly draped front,
panel of velvet, over which back and
front meet with a how of ribbon. Close
body, with a velvet vest; folds of tho
goods from each shoulder to point of tho
basque; butterfly bows on each shoulder;
belt from sido forms with large button
clapo.
—A young lady's home dress is of velvet and pattern camel's-hair. Velvet
collar and front yoke gathered full; polonaise body, tbo embroidered front opening over a front breadth to match, and
with a velvet bund across the lower edge
ot the skirt; sides in plaits; back gathered; the polonaise drapery slightly
caught up; velvet cuffs; large buttons
at sides of polonaise.
—An afternoon dress is of striped
surah, with velvet vest, collar and cum.
Tho skirt has a very deop, full side-
plaited fan set in, over whicli is a double
panel, parting slightly nt the top and closing toward tlie bottom, apparently held
together by largo buttons. The draperies
are so drawn as to givo a bias effect across
the bottom of the skirt. Three yards of
velvet and sixteen yards of surah is required.
—A suit of plain Bengaline, with
beaded trimming, is mado with a plain
waist, with wide rovers decorated with
largo buttons nt the outer edge, plain vest,
with beaded collar and pendent pattern;
plain sleeves with straight coat cuff, and
one button on the outside, vory full skirt
draped over beaded panel; unique and
stylish.
—Dresses of faille and brocaded velvet
has beaded points over tho front of the
skirt. Brocade fronts open over a plain
breadth; very full puffed draperies over
tho hips: side plaiting back of the brocade panels; close-llttirig wiiisl, with wide
cuffs, collar and rovers of brocade.
Chemisette of silk in wide middlo jilait,
with buttons; straight round collar.
—Transparent French muslins are exhibited with strawberries, laurel blossoms, sweet-brier roses and foliage, arbutus blossoms, and half-opened buds, scattered on vari-colored geouuds; usually
the backgrounds are of pile tints—a very
delicate tea rose or primrose being a
favorite shade, but the bright-colored
fruits and flowers look very well against
a background of olive, pale golden-brown
or moss-green. .
mraraiATioN OF CHINA.
A Halter of JInch Dsnbl-Sow M»,«0O>
OOO People In China,
The population of Ohina has been a
matter of much discussion and doubt
among foreigners. It has been claimed
that the figures of the Chinese census are
much too big, There is, however, no
known reason why the officials of that
county should exaggerate their population. There is no disputing the fact that
the means existing there for arriving at
an accurate census are most ample.
Every house must have a list of Its inmates hung at its door, and a violation of
this is visited,with punishment. The
imperial and local taxes are based in part
upon tho numbers of the people. The
most difficult task imposed upon tho provincial rulers is the furnishing tho amounts
of money demanded by.the imperial
Government and any excessive census
return would only increase that difficulty.
It is only a fair presumption that if tho
census returns are incorrect, they are too
small rather than too large.
Tho census of 1875 gave the population
of tho empire at 435,000,000. Since that
time Tonquin has been lost, with several
million people, and Kashgaria has been
reconquered. Among no people with
any degree of civilisation is tne birth rate
so high as ia China, and, although the
death rate in the densely.crowded districts Is very great, there is every reason
to presume there are now 450,000,000
people in China.
These figures represent more than one-
third of the population of the globe, Tt
is a greater population than that of all
Kiirnpi:, und three times the number of
peoplo on tin western continent. Even
at these enormous figures the average
number of people to tho square mile for
tho whole empire—85—is not so high as
in some parts of tho United States.
In the great mountain ranges, on the
arid plains of Kashgaria and the snowy
regions of Mongolia and Mancuria the
population is sparse, but in tho eight central provinces of China proper—in the
fertile, alluvial soils—the population Is
denser and more crowded than in any
othor region of equal extent on earth.
The villages thero aro almost beyond
enumeration, and the numbers of walled
cities incredible to those:who have not
seen them. In the two Kiang provinces,
at the mouth of the Yangts Ihvcr, with
an area of 90,000 square miles, the population in 1875 was 72,000,000, and there
wero 125 walled cities.
. Tho census of 1875 was taken when tho
richest portions of these two provinces
had been devastated and depopulated by
the Taiping rebellion. Since that time
thero has been a great inpouring of people
from other regions of the empire, especially from thoso districts whero the famine of
1878 prevailed. Tho natural increase ol
population bas also been very great, and it
would be safe to say that there 00,000
square miles have now more than 80,000,-
000 people,

Supt. Roycrotl's Mission.
Arrest «r the Mlller-.Drlug Mnrdrrer--
■eaula. er the tea Blrd-The Crew
Massacred
It wu announced in this journal u
few days ago that Supt. Roycroft, of
tho provincial police, had proceeded
northward In search of tho murderers
of Miller and Dring, and with a view
to discovering the fate of the schr. Sea
Bird, whicli left Port Townsend a year
ago and had never been found. The
str. Boscowita, which arrived at Nuiini-
mo on Tuesday, brings important news
from the expedition, which we take
from the Free Press: From J. A. Car-
thew, who returned from Rivers Inlet
by the steamer, we learn that at Corn-
ox the party found and arrested Quintet on suspicion of being implicated in
the murder of Miller ami Dring. Quintet is brother of the Indian Tataguna,
who wu hung at Nanaimo in 1881) for
the murder of his uncle ut Salmon
River. It is stated that Qumlet mado
a complete confession to Joseph Ro-
dello of Comox of having murdered
Dring and Miller at Cowichan. Ho
intendod to murder somo of thoso connected with the hanging of his brother
Tataguna, but not having a fuvorblo
opportunity, he took his revenge on
Miller and Dring. After making tho
confession to Hodollo he then tried
to buy Rodello's silence by offering
him a (100 canoe, At Alert Bay Car-
thew was informed that Superintendent Roycroft had found the remains
of the schooner Sea Bird at a creek in
Blenkinsop Bay, just above Seymour
Narrows. Borneo! the Indians confessed that Captain Harry Moore and
his crew were murdered and tho bodies
buried. The schooner had been run
up the creek and a fire bad been started under her so u to destroy ull trnco
of the crime. The police found a ono
arm shirt (Capt. Moore having ouly
one arm) and a number of other articles belonging to the ill fated vessel
and crew. On the return of the steamer Bkidegato full particulars will be obtained. . .

(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
Pout Simpson, Aug. 0.—Tho salmon run is jurt over, ahd the cannery-
mon aro all well ploased with their
pack. 1 think tho Skidogato Oil Co.
lias had a good catch and done well.
The coal mine on Queen Charlotte
Island is ubout to be opened. The
Hudson Bay Co. is now rushing ita
freight up in canoes via the forks of
the Skeona to New Caledonia. It is
said tlio company will havo a steamer
on the river noxt year. A party of
20 mon arrived hero by canoe and
boat from the schooners seized in Alaska. They belong mostly to the wost
coast of Vancouver Island. A new
trade is springing up here. Long ago
crowds of Indians from Chilcot, Tacoo,
otc, woro in tho habit of cimiug here
with thoir fine furs for salo, and thoy
got good II. B. Co. blankets and other
goods in return (no grog). Now we
do not see so many Indiana as formerly,
but their whito brothers come to take
grog—tho roal Old Tom, thoy say, in
some cases by hundreds of gallons.
One of these was tbe noted Banks,
with his sloop Annie. Well, but they
say he was taken nnd lodged in gaol
iu Sitka! Yes, but now they coine in
small boats, and when thoy come to
town they say they havo to soe the
place. One party said he expected
somo money by the Btoauior; another
party said tlio company had not got
the kind of goods ho wanted; another
that he wished to fit out for a prospecting expedition! But is said that
the cheap liquor was all sold. So. they
are waiting until the boat comes in,
and then there is a sudden exodus
into Alaska —not of Metlakahtla
Christians, but of whiskey smugglers.
Some of them begin to fear that if
Mr. Duncan gets settled over the line
in Alaska aa a missionary and magistrate, with a batch of constables about
him, he may be likely to put a
stop to this unlawful traffic and interfere with the new trade!
It  IS A KKUAKKABLK  FACT that Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil is as good for Internal as external uso. For disease of
the lungs and throat, and for rheumatism, neuralgia, crick iu the bock,
wounds and sores, it is the best known
remedy, and much trouble is saved by
having it always on hand, Jacob Loock-
man, Buffalo, says ho haa been using it
for rheumatism. He had suoh a lame
back that ho could do nothing; but one
bottle entirely cured him.

clamntioii by her mnjesty the Queen,
pardoning all descrtcra from the British army wherever they may be. This
royal favor is bestowed in honor uf the

A CIUNRSE RIOT.
San Franiwo, Aug. 17.—A small
riot occurred at tho J. Lusk Canning
Co.'s at Teiitus, Cal., yesterday afternoon. Foreman Frank Mason was
passing through the factory when one
of Ihe Chinamen appliod a vile epithet
to him. Mason resented by striking
the Chinaman. The entire force of
Ohinese, about 200, moat of whom
were armed with knives, attacked
Mason, who was compelled to take
refuge in one of the building, and bar
tho door, which tho Chinamen tried to
beat down. Mason secured a revolver,
and with the assistance of somo of the
other employees and Chinoae bosses
succeeded in beating back the rioters
with clubs. The rioters then quit
work in a body, and the management
will endeavor to supply their places
with white labor.
