NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Tha Volapuk (new universal language) word for "drink" il uid to
lid "dlinkailili." This is a move in
the direction of practical teniperauce.
A man three sheets in the wind
would find it impossible to voice his
desire for more liquor.
In our note yesterday, about that
long tunnel in Hungary, the most
interesting fact got itself omitted.
Tlio work was commenced juit about
a century ago, and the price paid
for work in tbe lait stage, was juit
three times the original contract
price—whioh seems to be rather
against the "good old times" theory,
unless workmen could, live a good
deal cheaper in those days.
English girls are evidently determined to qualify themselves to become good housewives. The conviction is foreed upon one by the
statement made in an English newspaper that the London School of'
Cookery, presided over. by Mrs,'
Agnes B. Marshall, was attended
last'year by 10,000 young ladies,
It may be expected that dyspepsia
will soon become an unknown disease in England.—& Perhaps
the girls can inform us what that
reference to "dyspepsia" means. Tbe
problem is too many for us.
And Hamilton, Ont, it appears,
is borrowing money for sewerage
purposes, and selling its debentures
at a small premium too. The following is from a late number of the
Hamilton Times: The finance committee will recommend at the next
counoil meeting that the tender of
Mr. John Biddell for the t}U0,0ti0'
of debentures be accepted at § of 1
per cent premium, TliSjdfp.jritfires
are issued under the by-law voted
on by the citizens on May 23, and
are to cover the expnditure for the
present sewer system now under
construction and for the pumping
machinery.
Yeiterday we noted the fact that
some of England', prominent educators are moving in the direction
of reform in 'school curriculums.
There has been some local agitation
in the same direction lately, and it
might result in good if the matter
were taken up and discussed in the
the right spirit—apart from politics,
The'fact that about, one-fourth (we
believe) of our revenue i) used up
for education, mates the tarj)eCT <%
distinctly practical one in this province. Absolutely free eduoation,
we believe, should go little, if at all,
beyond the three S's, and all the
"higher branches" should be in the
high school—generously assisted by
the state, but not free.
Speaking of Von Moltke a recent
observer says: — "Notwithstanding
his great age, 88 yean, the marshal
carries himself easily, and seems a
well-preserved man, in spite of his
deafness and. liver trouble Tall
and lean, he' is slightly bent; his
smoothly shaven face has the * color
of old ivory; the tall brow is surmounted with a blonde wig, although
ho has had the courage to have his
portrait painted without the peruke,
so that posterity may see what a
cranium he had; two gray-blue oyes,
deep, cold, and penetrating, look at
you almost cruelly; the lips are thin,
and till nose long, straight, nnd
strong; long, muscular ean, and a
small and closed mouth—which is a
sign ot discretion, if not of taciturnity. v
The following curious advertisements appear in a North-West
paper: "Police Resort. Rolph's
Si loon, Friends from. the country
can spend a pleasant time with the
police boys nt Holph's saloon, near
the Barracks. Good drinks. Choice
cigars." "Oonocrt every niglit nt
Grade's saloon. Havana cigars and
beer fresh from Graffe1! brewery.
Oldest brewery. Boor delivered in
wood nnd bottle. Best beer." It
may bo thought that these advertisements betray tho inefficiency of
prohibit ion. But, as ii matter of
fact; they only show that the son of
prohibition prevalent in the Noi'ili-
West is of no practical good, A
member of the legislature enn now
nominate for licenses to sell. A

Montkeai, Sept. 17.—It it seldom
ono heara of a girl who wants to marry
her deceased father's brothor, but such
a cue haa cropped up in Montreal, and
ai the principal! are moving in high
circle!, lociety is shocked. Some
yean ago a Canadian gentleman who
made a fortune of over half a million
in tho west, returned lo thii city,
bought a handsome residence and after
occupying it for a few months died,
leaving the greater part of hia fortune
to a brother who remained in tho weit.
Since then the daughter and uncle
seem to have come to the conclusion
that it would be a pity to have the
money go out of the family and the
belt way to prevent this would be to
marry each other, for which purpoie
they made application, iti, understood,
to his Grace Archbishop Fabre for a
special diipentation.
FROM   THB CONGO.
Brussels, Sept. 17.4-Capt. Vangol,
.who hai juit returned to Europo from
the Oongo country, expressed himself
is believing Tippo Tib innocent of
any connection with the murder of
Major Bartelott, recently reported.
Tippo, betaid, ie engaged in commerce
and had in interest in the succets of
Major Bartelott's expedition. The
expedition wu supplied by Tippo Tib
with an escort of porter, who agreed
to wait until they arrived at Zanzibar
for payment. Capt. Yangol attributed
the major's murder to the circumstances that the payment for the cervices of the porters depended upon the
luccess of the journey and also tu Bartelott's strict discipline. He believed
'thit Protestor Jamieton will have
great difficulty in organizing a new expedition and ii convinced that Stanley

Editor Columbian.—I notice in your
last iaauo a paragraph referring to tbo
sermon on dancing delivered in the Oddfellows' Hall oh Sunday evening, from
whioh it is evident that, to far at least
as your reporter is concerned, the ahot
waa badly aimed and, flew very wide of
the mark. It would be difficult to write
half a dozen linos concerning the discourse whioh ihould contain nothing
actually falso and yet be more completely
misleading aa to its entire drift. Even
the text is misquoted. Any person who
was not present might well wonder
what could induoo a christian putor to
take up the time of his congregation with
platitudes concerning the dance Irom
winch no dancing muter in America
would dissent. True, tho admission WU
freely made that dancing, considered
simply u a inu.oular exercise, wu not
evil, in fact, had no moral quality whit;
ever, and further, that being prietitea
in tho home circle, among member! of
tho same family, or even with a few
wholly Irreproachable neighbors, it .aught
escape severe condemnation. It waay '
however, emphatically affirmed that tho
securing of auch harmless condition, "wai
practically impossible, and "tbe danoa,"
as a social institution, wu distinctly-ar-
raiuged as being an enemy. to . health,
economy, social and Intellectual life, and
morality. Whether those position!aver*
well taken or not is probably.a matter
about which there may be some differ- :
dice of opinion. That they were takeu.

Tho retaliation bill asked for by
the prrsulent passed the house of
repraientativcs some littlo time ago,
u stated in our dispatches, with only
four negative votes. A great many
supporters of the bill deplored its
prospective effects on American in-
toresti, yet so intent were thoy on
vengeance for imaginary wrongs that,
come what would, they aro determined to try and force Canada either
to concede all iti fishery privileges
or compel it to sue for annexation,
believing that England would rather
consent to the forced nuptials than
risk a fratricidal war. Through all
thii discussion, both in and outside
of the American congress, brother
Jonathan lias lost nothing of his
wonted brag and bluster. One valiant Minnesotian, in congress, makes
very short work of Canada. A
Michioancfo. also talks very big
about annexing the Dominion. And
Ireland is soon to become a sister
republic in the event of war, according to these fire-eaten. Of course
there are aome sensible men who
don't make fools of themselves in
that way, but all seem to vie with
each other in their desire to make a
little capital out of this fish business
at thil particular periodic revolution
in their spoils system of government.
It is to be deplored that even some
of our otherwise sober Kanuck
friends in the eastern provinces are
indulging in the like foolish bravado.
A little blood-letting would have a
wonderfully soothing effect on these
bellicose gentry. Many a tierce battle has been fought over a good
strong bowl of toddy. The eiTect of
all this windy strategy between the
two rival parties in the United
States over the presidential election
might be very harmless after tho
political contest is over for the time
being, but in the meantime its effect
on the Dominion of Oannda may not
be so easily quieted. Party politics
in the United States has been the
chief originating cause of nearly all
the troubles between England and
the republic since its existence; and
from the relative position of Canada
with tbe United States the samo
cause will be likely to produce the
tame effects continually; so that the
outlook for peace between the Dominion and Uncle Sam so long us
they are under two distinct govern
menta is not very promising. It becomes a question of great importance whether a union or a continual
irritation with our neighbors would
be tbe lesser evil. It is a terrible trial
to live beside a troublesome neighbor; but it would perhaps be n worso
trial to be obliged to submit to an
alliance with such a neighbor, when
every fourth year there would necessarily be a political revolution with
all its accompanying hate and lying
slanders and devilish chicanery. Our
own political system has abuses
enough, but stark republicanism,
where moral prinoiple is lacking, is
far wone.
the first of which they receive $7 a
month, and in the second $12. During this period they live in the
nurses' home, where the discipline is
severo, nnd after graduation thoy
usually remain till tbey have had'
the care of two or three cases. The '
pay of a trained nurse is from twenty to thirty dollars a week." The
profession of nursing, it is said, is
steadily gaining in favor as nn occupation for women, and so anxious
are many women to gain the benefits
of the school that they offer to serve
without pay, or even, in some instances, are willing to pay a fee of
from twentydive to one hundred
dollars for the privilege of entering
the school. These offers are always
declined; all are put on an equality,
must begin iu the lowest ranks of a
ward, do the inferior work, and can
only expect to riso to higher positions when they show themselves
capable of filling them. Dr. W. T.
Lusk, in his address to the graduating class in 1886, speaking of the
high death rate that prevailed in
tho hospital in 1873 and previously,
and referring to tho striking amendment in this respect, said: "Tho improvements referred to I unhesitatingly attribute to the trained nurses," and he continued, more directly addressing the olass: "I extend
to you on the part of tho profession
of which I am n humble member a
hearty welcome. In many struggles with death we will owe often
our success largely to your discretion and untiring zeal. In entering
the ranks of an honored guild you
have escaped tho monotony of an
aimless existenco; you take your
place at the right hund nf the physician, with your training, respected
and prized by .the community at
large." Mr. Henley, a well-known
art critic in England, who spent
some time as a patient in a London
hospital, discerns tho romantic in
the, to most people, prosaic and arduous occupation of the nurse, and
discourses tliusly in verso:
"A bashful all- becoming everything,
A well-bred silence nlwnjs nt cuinmnntl.
Her plain prlntgowu, prim clip, and bright
steel chain
Look out of place on hor, and I remain
Absorbed In nei,ns lu n pleasant mystery.
Quick, skillful, quiet, soft In speech und
touch—
'Do yon like .nursing?' 'Yes, sir; very
much!'"
Perhaps some of British Columbia's
fair daughters may take it in to their
heads to join this honorable and lucrative guild. Wo shall bo selfishly sorry if this urticlo becomes the means
of inducing the "denh cweatures"
to flock en masse from our shores to
some high-toned training school, unless indeed they return and found a
hospital, where we may spend our
declining yean.
A Creaking Hinge
Is dry and turns hard, until oil is applied,
after which it moves easily. "When tho
joints, or hinges, of the hotly are stiffened
and inflamed by Rheumatism, they enn-
jiot ha moved -without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's Sarsaparilla,
by its action on tho blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
Working order.
Ayer's Sarsaparilla lias effected, In our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which baffled the efforts of tho
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could givo tho names of
many individuals who have been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after boing troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords sueh
relief as Ayer's Sarsaparilla.—It. H.

Ayer's Sarsaparilla cured me of Gout
and Klic.iniK.tism, when nothing else
would. It hai eradicated every trace of

Manager Hotel Eoimont, Lowell, Mass.
I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted mc grievously, in spite of all tbe
remedies I could find, until I commenced
using Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I took sev-

NURSERY
Woman ii constantly widening
the iphere ot her operations, and
entering upon new fields of honorable and reproductive employment;
but perhapi the most eminently nat
ural and fitting occupation for women, and one whioh oilers peculiar
scope for the exercise of feminine
tact and , skill, is the profession of
mining. Thil aa an occupation for
young women is attracting considerable attention and becoming quite
popular in the United States and
Canada. In New York, Chicago,
and other large cities, are training
schools in connection with hospitals,
where young ladies are admitted
and put through a scientific and practical course of training. The first
training school for nurses was established in 1860 by the great St.
Thomu' Hospital of London, Eng.,
in honor of Florence Nightingale,
and the first one established in
America wai the Bellevue in connection with the famed Bellevue
Hospital, New York. Thii training ichool wai modeled on the Kog-
liih lyitem, although it has been
from time to time changed in accordance with American ideas. Taking
the Bellevue training school as an
irtitan.ee, the number of applicants
for admiuion to the course of training increases yearly. Last year it
reached the number of 386, and of
these 47 only were accepted. Many
of the applicants are members of
wealthy families, who take the
coune without any idea of adopting
Boning as a livelihood, but with a
view of being of practical use in
cmc* of sickness in their own do-
nwatie oircle, or for the sake of be-
ing able to impart instruction among
their {poorer neighbors, of whoso de-
ficienciei in this respect they be-
come aware by their visits of charity,

H&VV A YOUNQ   LADY WAS SAVED
FROM AN UNHAPPY MARRIAGE.
:-.,.; The Confession* or a CliolrosophtBt—
Clever Ruse of an Angry Parent and
Its Result—Telling tlie Secrets of tlie
Future.
{Copyright 1888.)
During the time that I placed myself nt
the disposal of anyone who had leisure
nnd money to study the Science of Cheir-
osoRhy, I was often greeted with tho
question: "But do nil these women who
come to yon believe implicitly everything
yon tell MumP"
To this query t replied, then ns now:
"Yes; and aot only tho women, hut the
men, too," snd this was the thins that
■: surprised me aa much as anything connected with my Cheirosophic experiences.
'■' My most Bonous adherents" have always
been men and it is true tlmt moro women
than men used to interview mo on the
subject, but whereas the majority of
women eamo simply to bo amnsed, the
men came Always In a spirit of skepblerfl
Inquiry, nnd from my conversations with
my masculine clients I used, ns a rule, to
learn certainly as much as I taught.
As I made a point of never ''talking In
air" but of always saying what I knew to
be the interpretations of tlio forma of
-,■ hands presented to mc, my clients used
ito believe naturally what their inner con-
/' sciousness would not allow them to
•W doubt, though many Indies declared that
I did not go half far enough on the subjects of marriage and similar futurities
whioh are tho stock in trade of the dollar
gyp»y.
During the  eight years that have.
elapsed since I took np, actively uud prac-
tically. the Science of Clicirosophy,! need
hardly say that many strange and weird
v    Inetdents'liaveoctnrrodau tho immediate
13 outcome of thy study.
In the samo manner, as 'the eon-
fessional would defeat "'Us own object
wero anything to suggest to the penitent
a possibility of the fracture of tho seal
placed upon the lips of the confessor, so
'"', i)be Cheirosophist becomes the hermctl-
*fl" cnlly closed depository of many n strnnge
mystery. Tho book of my experiences,
, therefore, will never ho written, but now
and then thero havo occurred incidents in
my experience which, dealing with n variety of persons niid recurring moro often
than once, may-be recount ed without violating the confidence of thoso whom It
principally concerns.
.Besides,having abandoned permanently
■ the practice of the science ns n profession,
I feel myself ton certain extent emancipated nnd- can therefore recount one at
least of many strange experiences thai
will evor remain salient upon the tablets
of my memory.
Suffice It to say, that one day, as very
frequently has happened to me, a gentleman called to have a diagram and .i description made of his hands, refusing to
dive his name nnd address, and evidently
... , laboring under some considerable mental
- excitement. His hand told the old, old
story, which'is the Biinui which has occurred to all of ns, whether at Nai*-lmpnr
or Babylon, whether in windswept San
Francisco, or sultry semi-tropical New
Orleans, whether In Yucatan or Smithr-m
Italy, whether nt the Capo of Good Hope
or In Labrador; and ns he was evidently n
man of considerable intelligence, and nUo
evidently Interested beyond mere curl-
•jally lu the science which liva,s expounding,! traced ont hia lines for Mm cure-
folly and told him the story of hit life:
. how he had left his homo nt such nnd
such an age, how a woman's Influence
aad-come Into his life, an Influent-- in
soma respects very good, in othom very
bad; how an immediately consequent
> Journey bait brought with ita heart-worry
of the most serious description, how tho
influenco of that woman ran through his
whole life up to the present moment, and
was on the verge, unless he took himself
very strenuously in sand, of landing him
into terriflo trouble.      "f^7,1-
I ban been accustomed all these years
to being Interrupted with expressions of
astonishment, I bove even known ladies
to faint vrben tbey found that I did not
tell them like the commou gypsy "that in
consequence of their having been bom
under tbe influence uf tbe planet Mercury,
tbey would marry a dark man, go abroad,
and meet with an accident ou the water
at. the age of eighty-fivci" But I have
never seen a more genuine, dull astound-
ment, a nearer approach tu that frightful
thing, tbe terror of a strong man, than I
did in the case of this anonymous consultant of mine. ,
He waited whilst my stenographer
made the transcript of what I bad told
him, and during the interval we conversed on various subjects. I found him
to be well-read, a scholar andagentleman
In every setse of the taw, a keen observer of human nature, nod gifted with
a very pretty artistic taste, and* though,
to this day, I bave not the slightest idea
who he was, I bave often wished that
ehaQoe might throw me unprofessional ly
across his path, and that I might meet
him on the footing of friend and friend,
rather than that of doctor aud patient
Our Interview at au end be left me, and
aome ten or a dozen people of every age
aud Bin, sex and eolor, having consulted
mo that day, my* visitor of the morning
was crowded out of my mind as the bub*
hloat-tbebase of a weir Is crowded ont
and destroyed by those which follow it.
It was only at the termination of the "set
of events" which J am relating that I recalled him to my mind and settled upon
him as tbo person principally concerned.
Tho following morning, a portly, not to
any pompous iudividnal, whoso appearance denoted a certain plethoric respectability, was sbown^ up into my reception
won*. I arose and bowed, aud he opened
tho conversation as follows:
"I haven't come hero for any of your
hand nonsense, but I have como here on
a matter of business. You aro, I suppose,
a man of business In spite of this silly
trade you seem to have taken up." I
smiled a dangerous affirmative smile and
thought It best to hear what be had to
soy before I discussed tho matter with
blm.
"A man called to see yon yesterday,"
continued he, "and had his hand rend; a
large, dark man with a stupid expression
on his face, whioh aome people are foolish
enough to oall handsome" I raised my
eyes Interrogatively, nnd he went on:
"It Is no use denying it, I know that ho
came here; now, I am going to work it
that he ahall return to you, and that is
wbylamheie."
Iatlll kept alienee, feeling that if left
to himself thla old gentleman would
probably flounder about for a while in
the misty labyrinth of hlslimlted vocabulary and finally, losing himself completely, would be at my mercy,
"Now, let ui any that I want to have
my fortune told, how much do you
charge.*:"
I hahoVa-hlm, In-alienee, a card on
wbftfcet-sVdsiani are specified for tho
InstraatUoolUO enquirer.  Helookedat
ItaAdiuesaMt ■»..
"Now look here, Atr. Heron-Allen, I
am a plain man and I am told that, In
spite of this business of yours, you are a
gentleman and shreivdat thatV
I was, of course, delighted to hear .this,,
nnd doubtless showed it in the expression
of my face.
"Well,'?: he-continued, "that man Is
making a'fool of my daughter. He is always dangling round her, and I believe
they're up to some mischief together,
for alio is pledged clsewhoro and must not
break her vows. Now, when becomes
again, tell him that he is betraying a
young and trusting heart, and that he Is
laying up a store of misery, of social
degradation and infamy for himself; that
unless he cuts the connection, he is irretrievably ruined. -In a word, pile itouos
hot as you can. Bu quiet 1 don't answer
mo yet. Then I'll work if. with my girl,
eh* shall come to yon," and-hero he gave
ma a description of tlm youjig, lady's personal appearance, l*\*ou-ima|ilo11 ber the
samo kind of thing, only move so, Sny
that tho mail rin wlvohv-Rfa la-wasting her
nfTcctlon Is n, blackguard, that she is by
her thoughtless actions involving a
household iu ruin nnd dragging n noble
name in the dust. Pile It. on us hot ns
you can with her niuo, nnd here Is my
check for "twenty times the fro which I
see you charge.   What do you Hay?"
Hitherto, 1 had iinii nt iiimd silence; now
I rose and mi'd to my vl-dto::
"I seo that yon fiel very deeply on this
subject, more deeply than you aro willing
to admit. It is this, comhitied with your
age and obviously good luti-nt-tuns, whioh
prevents my having you thrown out of
this house. Tito | ^position.! that you
have mado to me is infamous in every respect. You aro "dealing with me'in a
sense, diametrically opposed to tho very
flattering opinion which you profess yourself to have formed of me, and of my professional Integrity..' m j'eg, that before I
forget myself In a manner which I should
probably seriously regret to the end of
my. lifffjtfou wJU.lbaye-thla. room and
never-1 inflict your presence upon me
again.." ,
3 1 opened the door, he commenced to expostulate, and I suit): "I nnk.it as a favor
that you will go, for a more audacious
proposition has never been made to me."
The memory of this vMtor.like thatof
so many others, was driven In tur^from
my mind, nnd the next event which I
have connected with this little drama,
took plncoonthc following day.
' My manager, who came to see mo in
the morning, said: "By-tho-bye, a lady'
called on me yesterday nnd madeau appointment to see you. Sho would not; give
her name and she was very .closely veiled,
so I gave hev a curd filled up for 'Miss
Blank,' nnd If you have tho transcript
made of your description of her hand, she
will send for it afterwards. She won't
five her address to hive it mailed to her,"1
Se many people consulted me iu this
mysterious manner that 1 had ceased to
Jiook upon such occaslonsiH' drnintit-c episodes, nud accordiuuly. when nn appointment card was pic-cnted to me in the
afternoon, hearing tho name, "Miss
Blank," I did not give more than a pass-
log thought to the remarks, my agent had
made In the morning, nud directed that
shi f-holild be shown un.
i Sho waa, as he had said, very closely
veiled; she was drcj-sed very uncompromisingly tn black nnd trembled tu every
limb, I ascribed her disturbed condition
of mind to ordinary nervousness at something which is strange nnd unknown,aud
directed my stenographer, ns I always do
ou such occasions, to lake her place
Immediately at tho lady's elhow, ns I
bate found that the [lreseiiru of another
woman often goes fnr to allay the nervousness exhibited by .some of my subjects. The preliminaries having been
gone through, 1 reiiiiii'kul to her;
• *'I see that you Juivc noma renftou for
.not wishing me to know who you are nud
that you aro married. You are not the
first lady wbo has removed her wedding
ring before coming into this room with n
view to] testing tho accuracy of tho
scie jcc. The precaution lit unnecessary,
though I do not wonder that with such a
marriage as you have- marked in your
band, you should be glad sometimes to
put out of sight, If uot out of mind, the
symbol of eternity, the ring which keeps
the fact continually before you. But
this, amongst other things, I- wish very:
strongly to put before you; you aro evidently a woman of strong will in spirit of
your highly nervous orgiuii-*at.Ioil. Surely
yon are strong cuoiijjh to resist this personal influence which has come Into your
life and which threatens tn piny havoc with
it. Surely you ean foresee t hut tho course
you are pursuing at this moment 'is ono
which must end in ruin, nbtolulo nud Ir*
retrievable. Believe mc, the misery which'
you would escapo from is nothing to that
which you apparently wish to fly into.
Don't do it; because mi organization like
yours Is uot one which can withstand so
terrific a test; Is not one which is strong
enough to bear all the horrors oft lie situation In which you 'taint in- great danger
of finding yourself,'*     •
During the whole of our interview she
inalutiiiued a dead hileiice, and to this
moment I have not tlm vaguest conception who she was, or of what her persoual
appearance may have been, but If ever I
see that exquisite band again, I should
know It among ten thousand. Apart
from this, the incident was soon obliterated. Only about a wick afterwards I received the following extraordinary letter:
Sir:—You are even cleverer than I gars
yon credit for bolug, nnd such a histrionic talent as yours ought not to be lost
to the stage. I coufiss that I did not detect beneath the bombast of your manner, when I called upon you tbe otber day
nnd made you ft certain proposition, any
Intention of complying with my wishes;
now, however, that you have done so lu
every particular, I thank you for your
nation In the matter, though the manner
In which you received It, renders the enclosure of my check for the', amount
which I specified to you n complete quit-
tnnco from any obligation on my part. In
forwarding you this sum as agreed, I
have only to say that in making up your
mind.to adopt tho course which I suggested, you might have spared me the insulting assumption of a Ugh moral tone
with which you received my suggestion.
I am, sir, yours obediently, —*-,
If my pompous visitor ever consults his
bank book (which I think Is moro than
probable), it may surprise him to Aud
that that check has never been cleared;
but very often when In re-arranging tho
few papers connected with the science
which I bave preserved, I come across hh
letter audita enclosure, I wonder■ vaguely
for a fewmom-iits, who that handsome
young .rann with tho grave pathetic eyes
was, and where Im Is nt tho present moment, *jtkm,t    KhwAHIi HgaON-AUEK.
"It Saved My Life"
Is a common expression, often heard
from those who have realized, by personal use, the curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. •* I cannot say enough
In praise of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing aa I do that, but ror its use, I
should long since havo died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon. Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I hod a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at once. By continued use
this medicine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs. B.
Coburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely beliovo I
should have been In my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of tho lungs,
for which I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took the remedies thoy
prescribed, bnt failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely restored my health.—Lizzie

up to Chilliwhack yesterday' with a

would occur thii week. Something

Another Large Project.
Acompany has been formed under tlio
title of the New Westminster Saw Mill
Oo. for tho purpose of building nnd
operating a taw mill to be located on
Herring! point, opposite Sapperton.
The company itarts with a capital of
830,000, with power to incroaso 9300,-
000. A large amount of the stock has
been taken up by prominent citizens
of New Wettminster and the balance
ii being taken up by English capitalists. The company has acquired 180
acres on Herring's point whioh gives
about half a mile of water frontage,
with a sufficient depth of water for
.any olass of deep sea vessels. The
'Southern Railway will run through
the company's promises; which will
give excellent shipping facilities by
rail. Large timber limits havo been
■eeured in a locality easy of access at
all seasons of the year. Building operations will be commenced early next
year and the mills will be cutting tim-
beiibefore the end of the season. The
company will cut lumber for both the
homo and foreign market.

v, A Fanny Situation.
- At the city council meeting last
night a resolution, was introduced for
tho purpose of giving Mayor Dickinson
power to have the debentures issued
and to ascertain the best terms at
which the same could be disposed of,
and report to tlie council. Although
the mayor explained that this wat
merely a preliminary step made necessary by the amount of work in connection with tho printing and signing of
tho debentures, which at soonest cannot be ready within six weeks, not one
of the aldermen could trust himtelf to
move the resolution or trust the mayor
with the powers granted in it. The
character of the resolution boing so
clear, we should think Iho aldermen
might have had enough confidence in
tho mayor and iu their own judgment
to have taken some action in the matter, as the members of the board
must know perfectly, well that not
one debenture can be issued except by
order of tho council. Tho situation
was most embarrassing Until the mayor
asked that the matter bo-dropped, as it
wai evident the board would not dispose of the motion at one sitting.
Jamaica (linger. .
Some mouths ago a young man
opened a store on Lulu Island, a short
distance below English's cannery, and
since then has been selling,- what he
terms "Jamaica Ginger" to the In.
diana. The stuff turns out to bo nothing less than pure alcohol and sugar,
and will burn away as quickly as tho
purest French brandy. The Indians
havo heen purchasing largo quantities
of it for months past and tlie store
keeper hat been reaping large- profits
from its sale. Tho effect of this drink
on the Indians has been very bad nnd
some terrible fights and several atab-
bing affrays have taken place ' among
them while under iti influence. Laat
week a man while raving mid from
having taken an overdose of the stuff,
threw hii klootehman into 'the. river
and attempted to hold her there and
drown her, but luckily help arrived in
time to aave the woinan'a life. The
terrible effect of thii drink hai at lut
frightened the Indians themselves, and
Mr. McTieman was telegraphed for
yesterday to go down and stop the sale
of the liquor or there would surely be
murder. Mr. McTieman and [' Mr.
Moresby went down immediately and
made an investigation, wbieb resulted
in proving the matter had not'-been
overdrawn. The store keeper hM been
summoned to appear en Thuiway at
the diitrict court to answer the charge!
laid against him, -

Mr. Jos. Burr laid several large

for size or weight although one weighed

weighed half an ounce less and measured a fraction less than its companion. Mr. Burr said he did not boast
of their size, but of their flavor, and
certainly it would be hard to find apples more pleasing to tho taste. Mr.
Burr's orchard contains apples of other
varieties, samples of whioh he promises
to lay on our table ut an early date.

Presentation and Address.
Fur some time past the Rev. R. B.
Heuilaw'i health haa been very indifferent, and he haa boon advised by hia
medical attendant! to go to the upper
country. Anticipating hia departure
from Maple Ridge a number of hia
friends met at the parsonage on Friday evening, Hth inst., and presented
their pastor .with an address and a
purse of $55, $21 of which was sent
from St. Mary's Mission.
The following is the address, which
was read by Mr. Blake:—
IIkv. B.B. Hemuwi—Esteemed broth
cr; as the relations which existed between
us as pastor and people aro about to be
terminated, we deem it proper at this
time to express to you, iiowever imperfectly, oar high appreciation of your
worth. It is with feelings of disappoint,
ment that we anticipate your early removal from Maple Kidge, and wo even
now pray that your health may be.
speedily restored, thereby removing the
necessity of your departure for the upper
country. We can bear testimony of
your possessing that faculty by which all
true ministers of Christ are distinguished,
tho faculty of being thoroughly in earnest in the discharge of the various duties
of the ministry. In the pulpit, ia the
chief templar's chair, in the Bible class,
•nd in yonr daily intercourse with the
community, your grand aim In life—proclaiming the "old, old story" and reclaiming fallen humanity from the alura-
mentsof the intoxicating cup—is well
known to all of ut. We regret sincerely
you are leaving us, but we trust that the
quiet of temporary retirement, relieved
of thote cares and responsibilities you
hive recently borne, may conduce to
yonr welfare and that your wonted health
and vigor may be fully recovered. In
conclusion, wc beg that yon will accept
this address and purse and with them
our best wishes for tho health, long life
mid happiness of yourself and Mrs. Hem-
law.-W. J. Harms, It. Blake, R. A.
