NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Count Tolstoi has obstinately
opposed the marriage of his son
with n (In lighter of the lately deceased Kutkotl'. The reason lor
the opposition to the match is tbe
belief that Katkofft large fortune
had not been accumulated by legitimate ineaiis. Would any lociety
pupa or mains in tbe more civilized
Urition or America bo so foolish %
Echo is muni. -
We hazarded the opinion some
time ago, that the "Skeena trouble"
would collapse on the arrival of the
superintendent of police and hit
squ.d, and'tfc. event hat justified
our prediction. There hat been a
big powwow between tbe law's representative! and th. Indian chiefs,
and there: is reason to hope that a
better state of things will result,
especially as some of the Indians
who have lost their lives were
among the worst on the river.
What a vory "uneven" summer
thii baa been I Over in the old
country they have had no summer to speak ot. In Ontario, want
of rain and heat combined have
played havoc with agricultural interests. In tho prairie provinces,
the season hat been an unusually
good one, and out on thii coait,
while we have had more rain than
usual, we have had, on the whole,
such an alternation of wet and dry,
that crops will he over the average. Swinging to one extreme in
Britain and to another in Eaitern
Canada, the weather hai with ut
preserved that happy mean which
has insured us a plentiful harvest
and saved us from the losses and
miseries of very wet or very dry
seasons. For which we should lie
thankful.
-   ^iSOif.i^^ ^
In answer to an inquiry as to tbe
origin of the word "boodle,'Mm«ri-
can Motes and Queries says:—It
is probably derived from the old
English word bottle, bunch, or a
bundle, as a bottel of straw, "The
whole kit and boodle of them,, ii a
New England expression in common use, and the word in thii lense
meant the whole lot Latterly
boodle hat come to be somewhat
synonymous with the word pile, .
term in use at the gaming table,
and signifying a quantity of money.
In the gaming sense, when . man
hat "lost hit boodle," he baa lost his
pile, or whole lot of money, whatever amount he happened to hare
with him. The word nay be an
anglicised form of the German word
beutel, a puree, and in a figuratve
sense, money.
' Ia not that a pretty little itory
.bout Eliton's phonograph 1 We
don't mean to iusioutto that it ii
not perfectly true; butitia one of
those cases in whioh you would like
to tone up your faith by . little
personal experience. A man sitting down in front of a little machine and proceeding to he laboriously funny and entertaining for
an hour or so, all alone by himself, in order that, the machine, or
ono liko it, may reproduce bit wit
add wisdom for the benefit of an
audience 3,000 miles away, is
startling and novel enough; but
the idea of uiing the machine
to send back to him the "cheers"
and "laughter" of the said audience, is just a little quite too
awfully too. Champagne with the
fizz oil' would bo  nicy in compari-
Aoonrding to the British Medical
Journal, half of oil who live die
before 17. Only one person in 10,
000 lives to be 100 yean old, and
but 1 in 100 reaches CO. The married live longer than the single, and
out of every 1,000 horn only 90
weddings take place. Of 1,000
persona who have reached 70 there
are of clergymen, orators, and public speakers, 43; farmers, 40; workmen, 33; soldier., 32; lawyers, 29;
professors, 27; doctors, 24. Farmers and workmen do not arrive at a
good old age as often as clorgymen
and others who perform no manual
labour, but this is owing to the neglect of the laws of health, inattention to proper habits of life in eating, drinking, sleeping,' dress, and
the proper care of themselves after
the work of tho day ii done. These
farmers or workmen eat a heavy
supper on a summer's day, and tit
around the doors in their shirt-
sleeves, nnd, in their tired condition
arid weakened circulation, are easily
chilled, laying the foundation for
diarrhoea, bilious colic, pneumonia,
and consumption-
Corns cause Intolerable pain. Hollo-
way's Corn Cure removes the trouble.
Try it and Bee what an amount of pain
is saved.

New Tobx, Aug. 10.—The itsamer
Wieland, from Hamburg, which arrived here to-day, reports that on August
14th, off Stbl. Island, the Danish
iteamw Thingvalla, was in collision
with th. steamer Geiser. The latter
lunk in G minutes; 31 persons were
saved from th. Geiser, ill the otheh
were lost. The Thingvalla'. patsengen
and the crew of the Geiser were transferred to the Wieltnd. The Geiser
and Thingvalla both belong to the
Thingvalla line, which plies, between
New York tnd Christiana, Copenhagen and Stettio. The Geiser was a
Danish thip of ,1871 tons. She loft
New. York August 11th. The Thingvalla, which; registered 1844 tons aud
is commanded by Captain Ljub, left
Stettin July' 26th and Copenhagen
August 4th, New York. Captain Mul-
ler commanded the Geiser.
VOK MOLItt'S MTIBIMEKT.
Lomiion, Aug. 18.—The retirement
of General Von Moltke is much discussed throughout Europe as an event
of the first importance. The rece.t,
retirement of Baron Kuhn. the leading Austrian general, is recalled, und
the opinion is expressed that in both
esse, the withdrawal from active service of the old commanders was a matter of neoeeuty, in view of the aim of
th. continental powers to be in readiness for war at anytime. Thi, has
ltd to replacing the elder generals by
younger men who will do better service fn a lively campaign. In France
the retirement cf General Von Moltke
it looked upon at. check to Prince
Biimarck.

In n communication froffi aitjcor-';
rttpondont tt Upper Suinas, wjiich
- will lie foa-ul in nnotfcer ieoluna, we)
learn that the same satisfactory state
of things exists in that nourishing
■ettlement with regard to the crops
alii the case everywhere throughout the entire district this season.
While this fact is matter for con-
gnttolttion and thankfulness, we
observe that Upper Sunias, accord-
lag to our oxfretpondent, has tome
grievances. Tbe principal of these
appear! to be tho laok of a good
toidge over Vtdder Creek, resulting
is inconvenience and lots, us well as
danger, to the travelling public,
We would recommend the provincial authorities to look into this
matter, and provido proper facilities
for-the increasing traffic, of this' important agricultural community.
Another desideratum, according to
our correspondent, is' a bi-weekly,
instead of the present weekly, mail
service by horse-back carrier from
Sumas landing to tlio Upper Sumas
settlement—a distance of about
twelve miles, we believe, Sumas
proper, on the river, receives, wo
understand, five mails a week by the
O.P.E., and, Chiiliwhaek adjacent
gets besides three a week by steamer. We are not prepared to state
what .re tbe exact rights of the case
with regard to an additional mail
per ;week tor Upper Sumat, but
there; is certainly grounds enough to
warrant the postal authorities looking into the ' matter, and giving
everyone their dues.
Twifh has a very sensible article
on Mn. Cleveland, of the White
House, Washington. It appears
••' that» Mils Willard, a youthful acquaintance and schoolmate of Mrs.
Cleveland, had paid a visit to the
White House lost winter, and, being
a friend of the president's wife, was
well-received in select society. Recently, however, she has again
turned up in Washington, but how
ait, governess in a young ladies'
school. Mrs, Cleveland .still continues to treat her as of yore, and to.
those who were disposed to turnup
the nose at a wage-earner she has
given to understand that Miss Willard will be received at the White
House as in all respects their social
equal. Mrs. Cleveland is constantly
raising herself in the estimation of
all right-thinking people by such
proof a of her real, genuine character,
and the detervei the greatest honor
for tbe noble stand the bai taken in
thit nutter. In this age of shams
in almost everything, it it reassuring
that there it true nobility, even outside the patent article. America
hat produced tome noble examples
of the genuine article, such as the
present lady of the White House
and others who have occupied the
lame position in the past. No doubt
both the United States and Canada
could- multiply instances of such
noble, characters, who only lack opportunity to distinguish themselves
publicly, but,.just the same, positions of responsibility and influence,
are not always filled with the same
credit to themselves and the nation
as in the ewe of President Cleveland and his estimable wife, May
they grace their high office another
four yean, and we believe tho Am-
orioan people will prove next November thit they think to too,
I
Tlie Montreal Herald tees in the
railway situation, in Manitoba the
death warrant of protection in Canada. According to the Herald
the entrance of the Northern Pacific
into Manitoba ia the tint great blow
at the protective tariff in this country. The construction of railways
to the touth will increase international trade facilities with the
United States, and following thii
will come a desire to be rid of the
tariff which imposes such severe
restriction! upon thii trade. Commenting upon the remark! of the
Herald, the Winnipeg Commercial
My.! "In thii line of reasoning
the Herald is no doubt correct to
some extent. The Herald concludes
that when the west says the tariff
rauit go there will be nothing for
the Dominion government to do but
comply. There is no douht of the
fact but that the protective tariff
bean more heavily upon the woit
than any other portion of Canada,
but to for there has been little disposition thown here to "kick" vigorously .gainst protection. However,
now that the railway difficulty has
been settled the time may soon
oom. when the people of this part of
Canada shall demand that the tariff
be framed with tome regard for
wettern interests, and not entirely
in the interest! of the east." What
our cotemporary nyi about the tariff bearing more hetvily upon the
wett than on *ny other portion of
Cud. hat been recognued in thii
province ever  lines confederation,
2nd British Columbia, like Mani-
}h>, oin take tome credit to hersolf
for refraining from "kicking'' vigorously, out of deference to the rest
. of the Dominion. However, British
Columbia will not be backward when
Iteomei to joining her lifter pro-
Wnoe, Manitoba, in the revision of
the tiriff on tome more equitable
basil for all concerned.
In looking over the special Vancouver edition of the Morning Ore-
gonian of tho 7th inst., ono cannot
holp»gre«iiig]thnt nion, in IJieii'
otherwise laudaWc endeavors tO:;fur-
thertheinterestt.f theniselv<.s,shtiiilcl
be led into misleading and damaging
statements concerning other interests, so at to magnify their own by
contrast. Of course, it must be expected that this special number of
the Oregonian meant special business: newtpapers cannot all'ord to do
business for nothing; but all such
puffing should be strictly confined to
the merits of the case. In pulling
up Vancouver it was not nocesssry
tb give Pbrt Moody another kick, after it had been so long dead. Nor
was it necessary to suy so much
about the waning trade of Victoria.
It was neither necessary nor truthful to say that "Vancouver was the
only accessible harbor to and from
which to snip traffic over the O.P.-R.
road;" nor was it anything short of
snobbish selfishness to say, that pas-
sengers from the cast arriving nt
Vancouver must not bo allowed to
visit Victoria, but must lie sent with
all despatch to Seattle, Tacoina,
Portland, or San Francisco, as tho
case might be. "Vancouver, is Iho
only tide water harbor in B. C. accessible from the interior." The
above quotation from the " special
edition" is not true. Westminster
is equally accessible ns a harbor for
all purposes. "Vancouver is the
natural trade centre of the province
ofB:0." This quotation from the
"special edition" of the Oregonian is
also untrue. Victoria has nlwnys
been, and always will be the trade
'centrp for the northwest coast of
B.0 '. Westminster is tlie natural
trade centre of the volley of tho
Fraser. Vancouver will no doubt
have the privilege of buying all she
requires in the shape, of hay, beef,
butter, vegetables, nnd other products of the farm, for her own use,
but ns a distributing point she is too
near the "jumping off place," The
people of the old royal city huvc nl-
ways been favorably inclined to any
growth of population dn their northern boundary, knowing tint it would
add to the wealth and stability of
the whole district, aud be a sort of
suburban support on our cxtremo
city limits: but when wo see n spoonfed, hothouse baby like Vancouver
hiring foreign scribblers to decry
.ovory other place in Bi 0., wo cannot help pitying such silly selfishness.' We would recommend the
following couplet as a motto for our
ambitious salt-water sister: "Who
noble ends by noble means obtains,
that man (or place) is great indeed."

It hu often been a query how much
candy a boy could eat before ho was
catisM. It is generally supposed by
most boyi that thoy cm dispose ol
several poundsand then go hungry. -
A proposition was readily accepted
by a fourtcen-ycnr-old lad on Fourth
itreot, Sunday afternoon, that, if ho
would eat fifty cents' worth, it would
cost him nothing, but, if ho failed,
ho would havo to pay the halt dollar.    ,
As ho started in, bravely oyoiug tho
delicious chocohrtocroame, lio'remnrkod
that ho regretted not- having mado too
stipulation a dollar.
Quito a crowd gathered round to witness tho apeetaolo. The boy hepfc
changing from ono hind to another aud
finally wished to tako n run around tho
block, ns ho was gotting cold, but Was
held to his bargain.
After having namplod all tho oandics
In the shop, nnd disposed of .bout fifteen oonts' worth, ho showed signs of
having enough; IJe took tho half-dollar out of his pocket, put it back, ond-
then began eating again with renewed
vigor for a fow moments.
After having disposed of twenty eenls'
worth, ho suddenly threw the.-money
on tho counter nnd said ho had all ho
wanted, and before h*> would oat any
mora ho would fl^ht.?.,"
Ho seemed noxious to got away from
tho crowd, which was convh/sod with
laughter, and went whistling down the

A Sluggish Liver
Causei the Stomach and Bowels to become dtebrdered, and the whole system
to suffer 'from debility. In all such
cases Ayer's Pills give prompt relief.
" After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I have finally been
enred by taking Ayer's Cathartic Fills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
la their action, and their occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condition. —Ralph Weemtn, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which Was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that tlm. I have never boon without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and Increase the appetite, mere mrely than any other innill-
dne.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of ao remedy equal to Ayer's
Pilli for Stomach and Uvcr disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
wai yellow, and my tongue coated, I
had no appetite, suffered from Head-
Khe, wai pale nnd emaciated, A few
zes ot Ayer's Pills, taken In moderate
doses, restored mo to perfect health.—
Waldo Mllos, Obertin, Ohio.      ,
Avert PUlt are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting from
Uvtr Complaint. I havo used those
Hill In iBytimlly.for years, and thoy
newr fail to give entire satisfaction.—

Kidnapped
Tuesday a party of Kootenay Indian! tramped in to thit mountain
motrcpoli., and welt no doubt aaton-
iihed at ill many wonderfully inter-
etting tights. Among the party wai
t young aquaw, who carried a 2-year-
old papoose strapped to a beard in the
usual Indian fashion. She left th.
board and little fellow standing in
Stem & Oo.'t itore. While ihe wis
trying to make a calico deal with Pitls,
Kimpton kidnapped the kid and carried it up to Selkirk,' merely to show
it to the lady boarders as ono of the
many natural product! of the eastern
Kootenay country. When proudly
exhibiting the little redskin to a young
lady from Calgary, the child threw its
arms round Rule's ueuk and began
crying in Chinook, "0 papal napa'
take me to mamma!" This was too
much for Rufus, and he hastily returned with tho kid to the store. And
just in time, too; for the mother was
raiting aheol with Pitti, raring round
tnd charging him with stealing' her
"tanut panoos." Rufe swears ho
wishes the blanked brat had been
tongue-tied.- Truth.
Mr. H. McCaw, Custom House, Toronto, writes: "My wife was troubled

We have received the following interesting special correspondence from
"A Settler" of the above thriving agricultural district. We invite corret-
pondenee at all timet from the varioui
sections of the diltrict:
As you have held nothing from thii
settlement for a long time 1 thought I
would let you know how mitten are
progressing here, ti it seems to me
this flourishing settlement it left in
th. shade. The stock tnd crept are
looking splendid, and wo have abundance of grail to cure for hay. Should
we be favored with fino weather, no
doubt ample provision will be made
for the stock thii coming winter. The
trunk road la impamabl. from here
upwards, at the Arnold bridg. ii partially washed out, and then ' is no
bridge at all on the Vedder creek, nor
has there been for a long time. A
couple of ladies had a narrow escape
from being drowned lome time ago,
trying to croai the creek at thii place,
but 1 suppose there ii not any use asking to havo these bridges made passable. We have been used, und
there is no ute troubling with ui
until we are wanted again.
We hid a large and influential
meeting at the school houte ben on
the 12th intt. for the purpose ot taking
into consideration the molt convenient
time for ua to organize and turn the
water from Vedder Onek into itt
former bed, the Luck-i-kuk river,

wai unanimously resolved that thit
water must be turned into itt old channel, when it it now prevented from

EXCURSION TO PIH LAKE
In Bener of Mr Moylan, Lifpector of
Penltentlarlei..-A Cranl Day.
The many friends of Mr. Moylan,
inspector of Dominion Penitentiaries,
decided to arrange an excursion' in
honor of that gentleman in order to
thow hint the beautiei of Pitt lake and
its surroundings. When this intention
reached the can of Mr. Alex. Ewen
he immediately pltced the str. Adelaide at tho diaposal of Mr. Moylan
aud his friends, free of charge. Shortly nttor i) o'clock ycterday morning
the excursion left the C. P. N. Co.'s
wharf. The parly was of a most representative character, embracing
gentlemen of every profession, bank-
en, leading business men and government officials of high standing. At
the penitentiary wluii-f Mr. Moylan,
Mr. McBride, tho popular warden,
and a number ot other gentlemen were
added to the party and then tho steamer's hold was turned towards Pitt
river. Mr. McBride did the honors
of the occasion and introduced hii
friend Mr. Moylan to every inoniber
of tho party. After enteriiur Pitt
rivor the beauties of the scenory began
to unfold and each lucooative mile
added to its picturesqucness and grandeur. It would have been difficult to
have chosen a more delightful trip
or to have gathered together a
more congenial company. The table
wis covered with all sorts of refreshments, over which Mr. Fitzsimmons
presided so ably that the wants of
everyone were filled to a nicety. When
the head of Pitt Lake was reached the
steamer wii tied up at the bate of a
' huge mountain, whose walls rote almost
perpendicularly for a thousand feet
above the surface of the lake. The
cloth had been spread and covered
with all manner of good things, and in
such abundance that hid the parry
numbered threo times what it did
there would still have been sufficient
to satisfy the wants of many more.
Whin Mr. Fitzsimmons and Mr.
Keary, the directors of the feast, had
everything prepared to their satisfaction,, dinner'Was announced. Mr.
Mayor Dickinson occupied the ohair
and Mr. I. B. Fishor tho vice-chair.
On the right of the chairman aat Mr.
Moylan, th* gueat of tho day, and on
the left Mr. McBride, the father of
excursion. The dinner could not have
been otherwise than a succesB, the can
bestowed on its prepantion nutting
aside all other possibilities, Mention
might be made of the skilful and delicate way in which Mr. Kelly dismembered half-u-dozeii plump and tender
chickens, and the aire displayed by
Mr. Fitzsimmons in seeing that the
slightest wish wot promptly attended
to. After the good things hid been
stowed away the table wai cleared tnd
bottles and glaass introduced.
Mr. Fitzsinimona said he wished to
Krepose the health of hii old friend
Ir. Moylan, whom he bod known for
over 30 years und who hid beon in-
atrumental in procuring him, without
solicitation, the deputy wardenship of
the British Columbia penitentiary.
The toast was drank in a most enthusiastic manner, and " He's a Jolly
Good Fellow " wai aung in rattling
style. Mr. Moylan after returning
thanks for the way in whioh his name
hid been received, said ho felt incapable of .exprening a lufficiont aenae ol
gratitude at being honored as he had
been that day. In his official capacity
he had always consulted the intoreit.
of the public, and he felt gratified his
efforts had met with approval. When
he visited British Columbia ten yean
ago he.liad met with the greatest cordiality and hoipitality and he was
pleated to note thit these good old
ways and customs had not fallen into
disuse, but nther that they had become more unbounded than in the put.
He wiihed to uy publicly with regard
to the Britiih Columbia penitentiary
tint it hid mad. wonderful itridei
ilnce iti establishment 10 yean ago,
tnd it would compere favorably with
the best institution of the kind in
Canada. That audi ii th. cue ii due
to the cue, tbility, and skill of Mr.
McBride, thi warden, and tho present
high atate of perfection vitibl. in .11
the department! waa both creditable to
the warden and the government.
When he choie Mr, Fitzsimmons it
deputy warden he did io from the
knowledge of the fiot thit hi could
not choose a bitter or more reliable
officer. He alio wiihed to uy that the
penitentiary staff was, ou tbe whole,
superior to any other in the Dominion
(much applauee.)
Mr. McBride propowd the health of
Mr. D. Chiaholm, M. P.. which wai
received with the uaual honors.
Mr. Chiaholm retponded in a very
interesting speeob, comparing the
model of travel to-day with those of
30 yean ago, whon he first came to the
province. After paying a high compliment to the guett of the day Mr.
Chiiholra took hii scut amidst much
applause.
Mr. McBride piopuaod the health of
Mayor Dickinaon whioh waa received
in a right hearty manner.
Mr. Diekinton, in a few well chosen
remarks, returned thanki for the reception hii name had met with and
concluded by proposing the health of
Mr. A. H. McBride.
The health wu drunk with great
enthuiium and cheer after cheer wu
given it the conclusion of '■' He's •
Right Good Fellow."
Mr. McBride thanked the gentlemen
assembled for touting his health in
inch enthusisslio termt, and expressed
tho greit pleasure he felt in being tble
to spend > holidty in suoh plcassnt
company.
Numerous other touts followed and
the afternoon was spent molt pleuant-
ly by all on board and when the ateam-
er Adelaide once more ruched home
all agreed thit they bad never ipent •
more enjoyable time.
G. A. Dixon, Frankville, Out., says i
"I wu cured of chronic bronchitis, that
troubled me for seventeen yean, by tbe
use of Dr. Thomaa' Eeleotric Oil." See
that the signature of Northrop k Lyman
is on the back of tho wrapper, and you
will get the genuine Dr. Thomas' Eolec-
trio Oil.

(yeJterdiyl, by,the .Rev. Tho.. SoouHr:
Wllllarh i amui to Hary, daughter of
John Sutherland, .11 of this city.
r     tt. t. M. C. A.
The Y. M. C. A. means in prefer
spelling, the Young Men's Christian
Association. We make this explanation
that the uninitiated may know. The
New Westraenster branch of thi. world
wide Association hu its rooms on Front
street, tnd like most of the other
branches of the time great organisation,
is doing a grand work in and around thii
city. In fact time, will never unfold
the fint great good many a young man
has received through contact with the
beneficent influences of the Y. M. C. A.
We have gathered some Information and
statistics from tho hoard of management
which will give the public aome idea of
thu vast tvork and'many agencies in
process for tho welfare, both spiritual
and temporal, of the young men of tho
eity. Though every branch works in
conformity with certain understood rule,
and regulations laid down and luued by
the parent society at New York, no
financial aid of any kind is rendered by
headquarters, but each individual association is sustained entirely by such
resource, as it can obtain by its own
exertions, vis: 1st. The fees of tho member. thcmselvoB. 2nd. Collateral sub-
subscribtioiis of thoae in sympathy with
tho interests of tho association. It must
be patent to anyone that the membership
fees alone could not by any means be
sufficient to carry onawork so extensive;
they would scarcely suffice to pay for the
papers and periodicals month by month;
lor the fees are put so low that no young
man might find an excuse for not joining.
Reliance has therefore to ba placed on
the subscription, from outsiders, and tho
lack of these for sometime ha. been a
a source of great anxiety to the board
of management, who are having frequent
meetings just now to devise means to
build up and sustain tbe work. All the
Internal work ot the association Is performed voluntarily, except the office of
general secretary, whose whole time it
fully occupied, and therefore hu to be
paid for. Then there Is tlie hire of
rooms, gat tnd firing, stationery and
Soutage, furniture and many other inci-
•ntals. The branch of the association
wu organized in thil city Dec, 27th 1886,
since whioh time upwards of 180 young
men have become either active or associate memben. The membership of
course fluctuates, and many of these
young men have been distributed since
to all parts of tho world, carrying with
thorn the good they have received, and
joining with other branches. Tho rooms
are opeued daily, and in the reading
room may bo found upwards of 60 distinct papers and other current readable
matter. In the parler the member! can
indulge in varioui innocent games, and
convertatien. The assembly room is used
for meetings and there are besides other
rooms for offices and.for committee meetings. To enumerate the various agencies
at work would be a difficult task. The
following are a tew: Gotpel services are
arranged and carried on in the rooms on
Saturday eveninga aud Sunde.y afternoons. Similar services are conducted
at the jail and at the Royal Columbian
hospital, also on Sunday afternoons.
There is . free library, debating and
other chases are held, social gatherings,
bible studies, tc.,&e. One feature not
to be omitted, is the great help many a
young man his received upon entering
the city u a stranger, and in obtaining a
situation through th. effort, cf the atlo-
elation. Many, other facilities are needed;
a gymnuium and hatha are under consideration; pteralaea of their own are in
contemplation, and the official construction of the board of management
bu been lately resuscitated and re-organized to meet the increasing requirement!
of the young men of the city. Efforts
are being made to organize a string band
to accompany tlie singing at gospel or
other services. Help in this particular
is earnestly solicited. Our readers will
do well to pay the rooms n visit, where
they will obtain all and every Information
from the general secretary, Mr. F. R.
Robinson.
