Is nur climate changing 1 Many
times wo liavo heard tho question
asked, mid priilmps the licst answer
is that in suji a climigealile climate
it is hard to got data' upon which to
found an opinion. There can be
little doubt, however, that the clearing away of the forests is beginning
to tell quite materially in the matter
of rainfall In some places ou the
continent it has told disastrously ;
but the conformation of the country
will probfiUy avert any 'ifucli con-
■sequences here,' ]
It cannot Ijh Sitid that Lord Salisbury's speech at the Mansion House
dinner threw much light ■ on the
Irish question. According to his
lordship only a few more years of
coercion are required to "restore the
prosperity" of Ireland. There are
men, however, with much higher reputations for brains and honesty
than the noble marquis, who take a
very different view of the situation ;
and, of course, there may be two
opinions even as to what "prosperity"
mean. In the1 opinion of some men,
a nation of. broken-spirited slaves,
toiling for the enrichment of the
"gentry," would be prosperous, so
long as the taskmasters succeeded
in getting the full amount of their,
demand. Israel in Egypt was prosperous in that sense.
The Twonto Empire says:—The
British Columbia people are making
'extensive preparations for a grand
display of the resources and1 capabilities of the Pacific province at
the coming. industrial exhibition.
Mr. Hill, the secretary and manager
is informed that in response to the
requests of the authorities, the people throughout the province are contributing and preparing ar^c)e| for
exhibition of a character and on a'
scale which will not fail to make
the British Columbia Court, as it is
to be called, one of the features of
Canada's great fair. The value of
the industrial as an . advertising
medium of this kind can. hardly be
overestimated, where a display of
the agricultural, mining and nninu-
factuiing products of a country will
reach the eye of so many thousands
of visitors. And the idea is a good
oue at this time, when an increasing
interest is being felt in this portion
of tho Dominion in regard, to, British Columbia as an emigration field.
An amusing incident occurred
while the Imperial Parliament was
considering the Local Government
Bill lately. At one sitting the house
was making great progress with the
bill, amendments being cleared Off
the paper at the rate of a score a
minute. Finally Mr. Ritchie, the,
member of the government irrcharge
of the bill, moved an amendment of
which he had given notice, involving some slight verbal change. So
quickly was the work being done
before the chairman could put the
amendment in its new wording, Mr,
Ritchie's rapid mind had gat to the
next amendment; when theohairman
put the usual question, Mr. Ritchie
rose and objected to his own amendment, mistaking it for the next.
The members laughed at the slip,
the only one, it is stated, made
during, all the .sittings taken up
with this bill by Minister Ritchie,
whose abUity in conducting this important measure through the house
-of commons is favorably commented
upon.   A      '■, - r -.; "'
The premier of Victoria docs not
appear to be a mail who is likely to
let sentiment run away with him,
us may be. inferred from the following utterance on the subject of the
Australian colonic:):—"We Australians nro not likely to submit to bo
ruled from a little island in the Atlantic when we csn managn our
own defence, Such independence
is prophesied as n certainty i '-but
this only is certain, whatever" the
future may bo, it will be utaolutcly
in accord with our own wishes. Our
wishes are not in favor of sepdratio'n,
Two reasons check any such desire.
Danger to Australia may arise from
two, sourr.os~.frbm- Oliina or from
Russia. We could not cope with
either. Our only present safety
lies in remaining a colony of the
United Kingdom. Whoh Vfo number 20,000,000 to 30,000,000, tho
ease may be different; but the decision will lie with Australians, and
not with others. Meanwhile the
practical point is the federation of
llio Australian colonies amongst
themselves,"

TUB MANSION HOUSE UANQUET.
London, Aug.. •\).~The, miuiaters
were banquetted by tho lonj mayor at
Hie mansion house this eruulng. Replying to (he usual toast rf h>r majesty's ministers, Lord Salisbury said
that the creat curse of Jivland was
poverty. The government, ho said*
was not able to diminish poverty or to
enrich men, but it could enable them,
without interference, to enrich themselves, The government had been successful In lessening the tyranny which
an association exercised over the Irish
people and had increased the sanctity
of contracts. j^Ii the government of-
Ireland, he declared, were administer*
ed with the same judgment and iinu-
neaa as now for a few years lunger, the.
liberty and prosperity of the country
would be restored. In1 "Egyyt Lurd
Salisbury4 said the expectations of the
government had been exceeded. When
-Egypt should be able to deal with her
foes without.help, Great Britain would
be glad to leave that country absolutely, As to Bulgaria he hoped that
the statesmen of the continent we're
being convinced that it would be best1
t6 leave her to herself. He believed
that tho emperor of Germany appreciated the value of peace, and especially
as Germany could get nothing by war.
He believed it was more desirable for.
the peace of the world that the policy
of Russia should be more oh a parallel
with the policy of Germany. All that
Hid occurred in Europe recently had
been in the direction of peace, and
England's efforts- were always in the
same direction.
■.' RIOTOUS DBMONaSfJtATIU.YS.      :.    >
Paris, Aug. 9.—The official reports
show, that 24 persons were arrested
yesterday for participating in the riotous demonstration which attended the
funeral of General Eudes. But H of
tho offenders were held, hewever. The
night was generally quiet, although
there was some, disorder in (he Plnoe
de la Republique and troops were aent
to assist the police. A fight also occurred in the Fauburg St. Antoine.
The newspapers generally consider that
yesterdays demonstration was lets
serious than might have been expected.
The Radical press charge the police
with losing their temper. The strikers are quiet at Amiens to-day.
Another meeting of the cabinet was held to-day. At. Floquet, the
prime minister, informed the cabinet
that the Labor Exchange had long
been used for purposes other' than
those for which it had been instituted
and it had therefore been closed by
the government. The approaches to
each entrance.of it are guarded by the
police. The strikers, made an,-attempt
to assemble to-day at the Exchange
but were driven away by tho police.
TO-DAY'S DESPATCHES.
MAXWELL  CLAIMS   INJUSTICE.
St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 10.—lAto last
night Maxwell gave out a document for
publication in the English press, in
which he severely condemns what he

C. Arthur Preller in the Southern
Hotel several years ago, was hanged at
0:01 tiiih. morning. Landgrnf was
hinged at tho same time. When tho
death warrant was read to Maxwell at
8 o'clock he paled perceptibly and it
became evident that he was about to
weaken. Ou the march to tho scaffold
the knees of the condemned man commenced to tremble and it appeared
that he would collapse. , Ho pnuentud
a piteous spectacle, while Lmigraff, the
murderer of his sweetheart, his companion in death, tripped bravely for'

both inoti had been bound, they wero

PAUPER IMMIGRANTS.
New York, Aug. 10.—Commissioner
of Immigration Stephenson testified
beforo the committee of the house, investigating the immigration question,
that he believed six per cent of the
immigrants, arriving at Castle Garden
should bo sent back. Many who have
come over on false promises of certain
prosperity awsiting them have become
despondent on learning the true state
of things and gradually become hi- '
sane. Fully 50 per cent' of the immigrants now arriving are penniless,

New York, Aug. 10.—Shortly beforo 8 o'clook this morning steamers
and other vessels to meet Blaine sailed
from port. Among them was the str.
Sloan, which met the City of New .
York at quarantino, and both vessels
steamed back to port, followed by a
gand procession of other crafts,
laino was seen standing in the .midst
of a group of friends on the deck of the
steamer and gloriously surveyed the
inspiring scene, while the strains of
"Hail to the chief," "Home sweet
home," and "Star spangled banner,"
was heard on all' sides, On
tho saloon steamer Stsrin, Chairman Bartlett, of tho reception committee, made an address of welcome i
in highly eulogistic terms, concluding
with "oue blast on your bugle horn
were worth thousands of men." Blaine,
in roply, said ho wished every
one who wished to appreciate his wel- '
come after his long absence had seen
nnd heard what he had during the 14 '
months he had been away. The com-
in» campaign, he said, is viewed from
a European standpoint with as much
interest as in tho U.S. It is tho opportunity of England, it is the long
Idokod for occasion upon which the
cheaper labor and the cheaper fabrics
of tho old world expect to tntade the
new and lower the wages of American
workmen to tho Europoan standard.
I say the wages of the American hi-
outer cannot be reduced except with
the c.msont mid votes of the' laborer
hiinsolf. Ou arriving at Stann's pier,
Maine was driven to the 5th Avenue '
Hotel. To n reporter Blaine said hfl
did not know whether he would go on .
to Maine to-night or not. He did not
know what arrangements had been
nnide fur him. When told tho Irish
Americans proposed to serenade him
to night and present nn address hn
roplied, "That's nil right; lam clad of
it" As to what part he would toko- :
in the coming campaigu, Blaine said
he could say nothing at present; He .
did not think he would go outside of
Maine until after tho state election
there on tho second Monday in September. When asked about his health
ho at first said he was perfectly well, '
and then added, laughingly: "That's !

By the Southern Railway negotiations, which received so successful a
consummation the other day, Westminster, without prejudicing any of
her former connections and associations, has been brought into touch
with new centres of population and
commerce on the American side of
the boundary line. A certain mutual friendly feeling has always subsisted betweeu this city and the rising cities of the Sound, particularly
Seattle and Whatcom. The prospective city of Blaine, by reason of
its proximity, must also share in the
same good-fellowBhip. It is evident
that the Southern Railway project
has established a stronger community
of interest between the royal city
and the cities, present and prospective, on the Sound, than could have
existed without such a link. 'Hie
cordial relations thus established are
evident from the iitterauces of pub-
lio men and the press on the other
side of the line particularly. With
our almost immediate connection by
tri-weekly—it may be daily—steamers with Whatcom and Seattle, and
the speedy completion of the bond
of steel to these points, our social
and trade relations will be still further developed and consolidated, to
the mutual and lasting benefit of all
the cities and districts on both sides
of the line, whether directly or indirectly concerned. -
A few months ago the world was
watching at what promised to be the
death-beds cf four illustrious, world-
famed men—two in the old world,
and two in the new—John Bright,
a renowned statesman of England;
Frederick, the idolized emperor of
the German nation; Dom Pedro, one
of Brazil's best sovereigns, and
Gen. Sheridan, •' Little Phil.," as he
was endearingly called by his comrades, one of the heroes of the civil
war in the United Stntes. " One
shall be taken and another left,"
says the divine oracle, and it has an
exemplification in the different fates
of the four men whose struggle for
life engrossed for a time the sympathetic attention of civilized humanity. The English statesman recovered; the German emperor gave up
the ghost; the sovereign of Brazil
wrested a new lease of life from the
very gates of death; and, on Sunday
last, at Nonquitt, Mass., after the
longest heat of all, the hero of Shenandoah succumbed to his last foe
and joined the innumerable army
that have gone before. General
Phillip Henry Sheridan was of Irish
extraction, and was born in Somerset, Ohio, in 1831, making him at
the time of his death only about 57
years of age. Ho was a graduate
of West Point, and served with distinction in the civil war from 1861
to 1805, and was repeatedly promoted until he attained, in 1884, to
the highest rank in the gift of the
army, and received, a few months before his death, the title of "General
ot the Army." He leaves a devoted
wife and four small children, besides
a nation that delighted to do him
honor, to mourn his untimely taking
away. His name will figure prominently in American history. It has
been already immortalized in Buchanan Reid'a familiar and soul-stirring epio, " Sheridan's Ride."
An enthusiastic and level-headed
writer in an American magazine, the
Current, speaking of Mexico and
its prospects, lays great stress upon
the part that railroads must necessarily play in the development of
this extremely rich, but hitherto, by
reason of its lack of modern institutions and appliances, rather backward country. Aocording to the
writer referred to, however, Mexico,
with an infusion of new blood and
modern ideaa, is beginning to awake
and to shake itself free from the
sloth and degradation of ages, in
which ignorance, superstition and
anarchy reigned supreme. It has
been the one great misfortune of the
people of Mexico to perpetuate the
social life, tho customs and crude
civilization of three centuries ago,
and to share but little, if any, in tho
mechanical progress so brilliant and
enriching to the United States and
the Canada*. " Railroads," says the
writer, " have been the basis for the
great advancement which has taken
place among the people living to the
north of Mexico. Railroads have
cheapened and facilitated and made
comfortable intercourse—have encouraged and fostered the diversification of home industries, developed
the physical forces and given character to the manhood and womanhood of our English and French
•peaking neighbors. The same ways
with improved means will push the
Spanish-speaking people to a much
higher civilization, for here, in
Mexico particularly, and measurably
so in the states to the south, the climate and natural resources are better and greater than those in the
states to the north. Hera it may be
that the Almighty has designed that
his race shall bo perfected. Hero
already nature unassisted has done
more for the floral, plant and fruit
kingdom than in most countries on
the globe; and may it not be here,
too, that tome day will be developed
the grandest men and the noblest of
women t Railroads arc powerful influences for enlightenment. We owe
it to them that local arid race pre
judices are disappearing. We owe
to them the diffusion of progressive
ideas which will distinguish the
nineteenth century from all- time
that has gone hkore. Railroads
will yet make all the people of the
world shako hands, eat together,
and be brothers in a common cause,
the causo of humanity and the bettering of the physical conditions of
each other. Railroads, by facilitating our intercourse and by bringing
us constantly and agreeably together,
will yet msko us speak one language,
sing the same songs, laugh at the
same jokes, bow in respect to the
same God, and be at home at one
another's firesides." The writer
quoted above proceeds to show that
wherever and whenever tho western
nations have exchanged with the
east, and wherever tho Occident has
selected a route to the Orient, then
and there have been built great centres of civilization and trade, and
the people have been lifted to a
higher plane of action. As it has
been in the past it will be in the future. The destiny of Mexico, says
the writer, is a grand one. The
people shall yet diversify their home
industries and become free and inde
pendent of the workshops of other
lands, and with industrial freedom
she must become great. It is not independence of, nor dependence upon,
but it is inler-dependence with
other nations for which Mexico
must strive. " If tho Mexican
people advance as resolutely and as
uncompromisingly for industrial and
financial freedom as they did for
political independence, rapid and
certain will be their ascendancy over
those people who ride with their
backs to the locomotive of progress
and never see an opportunity until
it is past. * * * When Mexico's system of railroads is completed
in all directions, including Ead's
ship transport route, and all under
the control of the government in a
spirit of equity, and made the basis
for the diversification of home industries and security for the nation's
credit, then the people of the earth
will come by oommon consent to her
soil to exchange courtesies and to
negotiate business." The advancement and prosperity of Mexico, with
its vast undeveloped wealth in minerals, tropical fruits, and other products, is a matter of interest to the
entire world. Connected, as we
•will be in a few years, by a continuous line of railway, of which the
Westminster-Sonthern will form an
important link, with this Eldorado,
the development of its resources and
its political regeneration has a
special interest for us. The " little
burg," by its railroads, will soon
reach in all directions for the commerce of the world, and the southern
connection which it has just inaugurated will soon justify the indomitable enterprise und faith of the royal
city.

JAPANESE BABIES.
Tho Sobstltnt* for Whipping In Their
Ear-Away Country.
Ths babies In Japan have sparkling
eyes and funny little tufts of hair; they
look so quaint and old-fashioned, exactly
like those doll babies that are sent over
here to America, says a writer In St.
Nicholas.
Now, in our country very young babies
are apt to put everything in their mouths;
a button or a pin, or anything, goes
straight to the little rosy wide-open
mouth, and the nurse or mamma most
always watch and take great care that
baby does not swallow something dangerous.
But In Japan they put the small babies
right down In the sand by the door of the
honsr\ or on the floor, but I never saw
the I- attempt to put anything In their,
mo; lis unless they were told to do so,
ami .0one seemed to be anxlousabout
tin   ■.    -.;■;•
\ ■■ :i little boys or girls in Japan are
11;, i.ryand disobedient, they must be
pit lied, of course; but the punishment
la \  -y strange.
There are very small pieces of rice paper called moxn, and these are lighted
with a match and then put upon the finger or hand or arm of the naughty child,
and they burn a spot on the tender skis
that hurts very, very much. The child
• soreams with the pain, and the ™d hot
moxn sticks to the skin for a moment or
two, mid then goes out; but the smarting
burn reminds the little child of bis fault,
1 do not like these moxas. I think it ii
a cruel, punishment, But perhaps it is
better than a whipping. Only I wish little children never had to be punished.
FOOD OF THE PRIMITIVE MAN. ;
allowing Arguments for and against that
Theories of Vegetarians.
Primitive man, wherever he was first
east, whether in oue centre or In more
than one, must of necessity have found
his food In the plant world. We cannot
imagine him commencing his career
learned in the art of hunting, killing and
I cooking the lower animals tor food.
Many Infer from this circumstance that
ihuurgument In favor of vegetarian prne-
' licni* copied direct from nature, signed
nnd delivered by her.
N>t quite so fast.   There is one Inter-
1 posing barrier to the free acceptance of
vegetarian deed and act of conveyance of
food from nature to man.  Nature, her-
tvlf.nf her own right royal will, makes
for 'Animals, herbivorous and carnivorous,
one iiistiuctivi! animal food; a (secretion
from the living animal organism, a fluid
which la a standard food—meat and drlu)c
iu uue-ihu fluid known under the uunid
of milk.
'Against absolute vegetarianism, then,
wo miy fairly set up one exception, de-
rivfj from nature as the unerring guide.
On observing the habits of animals wa
hiucover another natural fact, We find
Hint animals of quite different natures,
1 In respect to primitive selection of food,
piwaess the power of changing their
'modes of feeding and of passing over M
it were, from one class to another.   :
This change is distinct but limited, and
tru must accept it with all Its extension
on the one side and with all Its limitation
^n the other.
Tho fruit-eating ape oan bo taught under privation to subsist on animal diet; a
flog can, I believe, be taught to subsist on
egetable diet. But It would be as Impossible to teach a sheep to eat flesh as It
would be to make a lion feed on grass.—

PREPARATION FOR BUSINESS.
I Notable Examples of Fanlghted Shrewdness by Merchants af Holland.
A level-headed race, the Dutchmen.
. calizlng they are being outstripped la
s\ie foreign trade by the English and the
jlerniaue, a number of merchants have
Jirgauized an association called "The
(foreign Country."
j The object of the association Is to send
I oung men to foreign countries, not only
f i get acquainted with the mode of trans-
(acting business, and particularly In the
lazaars of the East, but that they may
reel at homo in those countries, and thus
Itrepare the way for the establishment of
I )utch commercial houses.
l They propose to support these young
Ken by paying their expenses and giving
Ihein a salary. In return the men an to
Kud themselves to return the whole or
plot the money whan they can do so
f thout difficulty, when the moniywUl

J The Dutch rightly conclude that know-
' idga of business or commodities is not to
lo learned behind desks, but by personal

.The plant producing the vanilla bean,
which, by the way, is the conMlest bean
on earth, is one of the rarest of any that
furnish flavors, odors or flowers; for ouly
very peculiar soil, climate and cultiva-
1 ion have yet Insured Its highest qualities
for any considerable time.
Misautta, a city of Mexico, situated in
the contra of a valley surrounded by
mountains some 6;0QO feet above the level
of the sea, is supposed to be tho original
home of vanilla. It has been found in
various parts of Central America, both
north and south, but in no place posses-
'situajiditu'flco rich and rare as in the
valley of Misuutta.
. Ingenious, painstaking and scientific
Frenchmen have cultivated It on the
Island of Mauritius, and'were successful
iu producing a fair Imitation of vanilla
which they termed tho "Bourbon" bean
for which they found a market In England
nnd France, but the crop of each succeeding year deteriorated until it sold for less
than half the price nf the genuine vanilla
beau from Its original home In Mexico,
where it has been from time Immemorial
cultivated and prepared for the market
by the native Mexican.
The native Mexican plants it near the
base of a ccrub oak to which he fastens
its vine, . It produoos no fruit during the
first four seasons. After that it bears
fruit for eleven or twelve years.
The fruit or pod grows In large clusters
similar to those of the bWnana. Its blossoms are In clusters much like our lilac,
but white fu color; and in fragrance wonderfully rich, exceeding that of the tube
rose, -The pod at first Is large and green
like the banana, but when ripe, it soon
shrinks until it has a dry and withered
appearand'. All its virtues and excellences serin to bj absorbed in the bean.   ;
These receive numerous mjuilpulntioUH
from the native producer:*. These patient,
diligent workers nllinu the absolute ne-
cosalty of a ninety days' hamlliug luorder
to ripen and retain the heat qualities of
tho vanilla I-can. They expose them to
the sun for a certain length of time aud
then place layers of them between blank'
eta until the alternate layers of blankets
nnd fruit form a large pile aud In this
condition they undergo a "sweating process."
Thus several times each day they arc
exposed alternately to the sun and the
blanket covering until all moisture Is removed. They are thus handled untlleach
bean attains the color of a very dark
cigar. y   ,        .''•/' '
Notwithstanding all this sweating and
drying process the beau must be kept In
rooms or vault s where the temperature of
the air must be so uniform as to avoid all
extremes of boat, cold, moisture, pr dryness.
. The tonka beans grown in South America, are often palmed off upon the unwary
as genuine vanilla. The tonka Is aromatic lu odor and strong in taste, It Is
good to perfume snuff aud to scent clothes
to preserve them from the ravages of the
moth, but a wretched substitute for the
vanilla beau.
" The tonka is worth fifty to sixty cents a
pound, while vanilla commands a ready
sale at from 112 to f 14.
Last year the vicinity of Misautta alone
exported sixty million beans, the great
portion of which reached New York. They
are ,used by druggists and confectioners,
and are a very important article of commerce,  u* ' *-j

WHERE THE DEFECT LAY,
A Brother fores the Colored Preaelitr'e
Beeigaatlon.
Then U * colored congregatltt of
Methodists, who, until a couple of months
«Ko, wen led In the paths of rectitude by
a very young preacher.
Ho was a fluent ion of Bam and the
length of the words he hurled at hia hearers was only limited by his lungs ft one
effort.....,'
Thlswaa all vory well for a time, but
when the elders of the church saw that
the argument adduced did not draw the
erring ones nearer to the blgwblte throne
a change waa decided upon and a committee of one was appointed to ask for
the preacher's resignation. .    M
When the errand had been itatedthe
preacher Indignantly asked what the congregation expected for nothing.
"Waal, now, dam1 yo' lee, we diluent
expect—"■
"Isn't my character away up ynn above
procrastination!"
"No trouble 'butt dat; but say, yer
ion'fc fur enuf eddicated to—"
"Kaint I talk continently enuf ter suit

"Dnt's It, chile, dat's it; hole right on
whar y'ar now. Yo' kin talk and yo' kin
talk, but yo' doan't pint out; yo' kin ar-
glfy and yo' kin arglfy, but yo' .doan't

The resignation was handed In directly.

The principal canneries hauled out

run as largely hs is expected tho can-
ners will bo able to make up the
losses incurred by the sock eye run.
After to-morrow there will be very few
boats on the river except those employed in supplying the local demand.
Chinese domestics have been scarce
for the last six weeks, but there will
now bo two where one is wanted.
ItttallNg Accident.
Two young men named Harris and
Wilson while out for a sail lost night,
opposite the city, met With an accident
that nearly proved fatal. By some accident their boat was cspBizad and in a
moment both of them wero struggling
in the water. Luckily some fishing
boats were iu the vicinity and one of
them went to the rescue and succeeded
in saving both young men, though
none to soon as they were almost exhausted when picked up. The boat
was fclao secured and brought to tho
city. Sailing is not a very safe amusement for persons inexperienced in the
currents of the river, and much caution
is always observed even by those who
have a thorough knowledge of it.

ATrltratc,
We tako the liberty of publishing
the following testimonial to British
Columbia and This Columbian, which
we received yesterday, by postal card,
from Liketield, Ontario, dated Aug 2,
The writer is Mr. W. C. Steves, well
known in this city and district. ' The
noto runs as follows: "Tub Columbian of the 18th July did not gladden;

The counsel for tho government ex-

that some of tho work objected to

the field by a sort of trail, which, how-

Mr. Kitkland stands good 6 ft. high,
but he was not toll enough to see over
the stalks which weite waving round
him, as the oats wore nearly 7 feet in
height. After pursuing his way for a
considerable time he thought the rear

It may seem a strange thing for a man

but it is nevertheless a fact, and there
are a dozen more fields on tho Belta
where the same thing might occur.
Cremation Introduced.
That Westminster is rapidly falling
into Hue with the customs of modern
cities, and adopting tho most advanced
ideas on all subjects, is becoming more
apparent every day. The latest departure to chronicle is the, establishment of a crematory, which though Unsuccessful in its first operation may yet
become as perfect as could be desired,
Mr.Jiis, \yiq.temuto had the, misfortune,, a fe'w dap ago, to lose a well beloved horse, which he desired to cre-
mate iu the .must approved and scientific manner. The furnace was erected
on'n^'acant'lot in trie upper, portion of
the city, and when all was ready the
remains were conveyed to the spot and
the process began. Unfortunately for
the success of the experiment the hone
had led an active And useful life, and
had spent more time in performing its
duties than in putting fat on its ribs.
The furnace fire was both largo aud
hotehougri to do the work well under
ordinary circumstances, but the conditions in this case were extraordinary,
as the whole carcase refused to lend
even ono ' drop of oil to hasten the
ceremonies; ' Additional' wood was
heaped on and stirred up, but to no
effect, tho carcase would not burn and
the ceremony was given up iu.despair.
The remains now He exposed to sun,
wind and weather, aud owing to the
partial process do not present a very
attractive appearance, and the peoplo
in the neighborhood are quite justified
in demanding that the, cremation be
properly finished or'theTemains of the
remains decently interred,
The JlfKl Pill*,—Mr. Win. Vander-
voort, Sydney Crossing, Out., writes:
"We have been using Tarmolee's Pills/

result of their efforts has been laid before the minister of justice here, nnd

placed the crime on the man who committed it, and who swore away Mill-

will be captured within a few days.
The question arises if his 'guilt is established, could two men be hanged
for one man's crime?   !
