PruMklif eat Practice.
It was at the Institute of Technology a few days before the clow
of the term. One of the profeason
had been troubled by hearing some
of tbe students indulging in slang.
Accordingly, when his class had assembled to hear bis lecture, he gave
them a ten-minute discourse on the
use of slang, told them how it was
corrupting the language, and tbat its
use was, among persons of cultivation and refinement, a sure sign of
ill breeding. Then he went on with
his regular lecture, and at its close
called the attention of his olass to
the faot that some of them had been
remiss in their studies, and that it
behooved them to make up for lost
time, or they would fail to pass the
approaching . examination**. , '.'The
fact is," he concluded, "you've' {jet
to brace up or you'll get left,"which
shows that preaching and practice
are often wide apart—llotton Herald. , . .

Maw Italy 4m It.
The new criminal code of Italy,
just promulgated, abolishes the
death penalty for murder or any serious crime. It substitute! therefor
imprisonment for life. The first ten
years is to be in solitary confinement at hard labor; at the end of
that period, if the convict hal conducted himself well, he call thereafter work among his associate convicts, but is still condemned to remain silent. For continued good
behviour he is to be rewarded by permission to speak occasionally. In
case of dueling the court has first
to determine whether all the laws oi
honor have been complied with, and
then the penalty is six months' im-
Srisonment for mere fighting. For
eath, five years' imprisonment;
seconds in the first oase to have
threo montbs; in the second ease
two months and a half.

4th day of next July, He stands
erect, and one day lost week, on a

The engineer of the train was so
mortified nt the result that he resigned, The veteran felt none the
worse for his run and celebrated his
victory by jumping over a five-barred gute and eating a large number
of consecutive quail. His hearing,
eyesight and taste for tobacco are as

LAST XlflHFB DESPATCH BS.
rAHNEl.L IN A BAD FIX.
London, July 7.—Tho Times this
mornintf says that Mr. Parnell's ad-
missions to hi. charaoler >■ a member
of parliament, are lerimsly. affected.
He haa a very imperfect idea of his position. He places against a tremendous indictment his bare, unsupported
denial, which would be as much a matter of course from the greatest criminal as from the innocent man. In the
circumstances the denial is absolutely
worthless as evidence, even if made by
one whose character for veracity was
beyond doubt and suspicion. Such, a
charaoter is not borne by Mr. Parnell,
who has been convicted, as in his Cincinnati speech, of solemnly and indignantly asserting what was not a fact.
The -rimes reiterates and is fully prepared to prove in open court the
charges made against Mr. Pamell and
hla followers. The unionist papers are
prepared to believe that Mr. Parnell is
guilty of connivance in the Phcenix
Park murders in Ireland as alleged by
the Timo, if he does not bring an aotion for libel and so clear himself, It
.is understood that Mr. Parnell is considering the advisability of bringing
such a suit.
KKOSI THI CONGO.
London, July 7.—The. steamer
Volta haa arrived at Liverpool with
Congo dispatches to May 27, which
give further details concerning the
camp on the Aruwhimi. The csmp
was suffering from lack of food and
from maladies arising from the surrounding swamps. Reconnoitoring
parties which had advanced along
Stanley's route passed quantities of
human bones, which were apparently
the remains of victims who hid fallen
in fights betwee Stanley's followers
and the natives. The relief had been
received by the camp from TippooTib.
Major Bartellot, believing that Sum-
ley was not more than 000 miles beyond tha camp in the direction of
Khartoum, was prepaaing to strike his
tent and push on and join him.
TO KIT THK TURKEY.
London, July 7.—The Berlin" Post,
in a semi-official article, expresses
doubts if anything will result from the
conference with the csar, and says it
does not wish to discourage hopes of
peace, but if war doea coma it will originate in the internal life, and not by
the ambition of princes. All that is
likely to be gained by the visit of Emperor William will be the temporary
arrest of dangerous tendencies. Pesth
advices state that the autograph letter
ot Emperor William, presented by
General Wildersae to Emperor Francis
Joseph on Thursday hinted that initiative proposals would be shortly
taken to Russia.   This agrees with re-
Krts from other sources tbat the Csar
s a new scheme fur the final settle-
meat of the Eastern question, involving the partition of Turkey. In official
circles the chances of any inch radical
overthrow of the Berlin treaty are regarded aa hopeless. No agreement is
considered possible on the basis of
Austru-Russisn division of the Balkan
provinces. Count Kalnock; ia known
to have a close uiiderataiiding with
England, conjoined with Italy to listen
to no overtures from Russia unless
they are addressed at Ihe same time to
the other signatory powers. The sum
of the position is, after an almost
ceaseless coming and going of statesmen and crowned heads, that diplomacy will finally leave the nations to
face Ihe issues of wsr.

There is, perhaps, no better sign
of prosperity in the future than the
filling up of the vacant, lands that
yet remain unoccupied. Lost week
a little colony of stalwart settlers
located lands for homesteads near
the Scott road in township 2, Surrey, about,fivfl,miles south from
Weatminater. Four or tivo of them
are arcaben of the salvation -army,
lately from the east, all family men,
who have oome to stay, and if they
exhibit the same earnestness and
energy an subduers and tillers of the
soil as they do in the gospel vineyard, we may expect the wilderness
soon to rejoice and blossom like the
rose. Westminster district is fast
filling up, according to all accounts,
and by the time of anothor general
oleotion will be in a position to demand an increase of representation
in tlie legislative councils of the
country. It will then be time to
tako a new start in the management
of the affairs of British Columbia
generally, and of this district in particular, Wo must have enlarged
municipal organizations wherever
practicable, besides representation in
strict accordance with population.
The people will not. any longer submit to special privileges of persons
or places: we must have a fair field
and no favors.
The i'i'imi af Friday last has an
article on "Political Degeneracy,"
which is pot uncalled for by the circumstances that brought it forth.
The particular phase of political
degeneracy touched upon by our co-
temporary is that—of all others perhaps the'most detestable—of members of parliament seeking election
for the real, but concealed purpose,
of providing themselves with soft
billets, at die expense, very often,
of good public servants who hold the
positions which they covet, and
which, by the influence they are enabled to exercise through receiving
the suffrages of the people, they obtain. The "TinKni very correctly
says: "The only possible interest
served, in the majority of such appointments, ia the pecuniary condition of the politician, who not infrequently attains to a position of comparative opulence by sacrificing the
eause he was elected to advocate,
and abandoning at a critical moment
tbe constituency whose confidence
he thereby proves himself unfitted
to retain." As a cose in point, our
cotemporary cites the removal of
Mr. Wallace, postmaster of Victoria,
whose place was filled by Mr. Shakespeare, ex-M. P. " Mr. Shakespeare
will probably fill the position creditably," says the Timts, "but not
more so than did Mr. Wallace, while
there will be an additional cost to
the country of several thousand dollars per annum," Another case
cited by our cotemporary is what it
calls "the triangular deal," which
was to give Mr. E. Grow Baker, M.
P., a senatorship, Senator Macdonald the eollectorship of the port of
Victoria, and Collector Hamley, the
present efficient customs officer, a
corner on a shelf. The consummation of this "job" was prevented,
the Times says, by the forwarding
of a numerously and influentially
signed protest from tbe citizens of
Victoria to Sir John Macdonald,
The principle of the people's representatives using their acquired influence to feather their own nests in
suoh a shameful way cannot be too
much condemned.  It ia disgraceful.
Tbe too-ready pistol is a great destroyer of life in the neighboring re-
' public. Our despatches continually
bristle with accounts of casualties
and tragedies resulting from the
almost universal possession of this
fiendish toy. A dispute occurs in a
barroom: straightway the deadly
revolvers are whipped out, and two
or three souls, very often including
innocent by-standers, are launched
into eternity. A friendly game of
cards is being played at a private
house: a dinerence of opinion arises,
an altercation ensues, tho ever-
ready shooting-irons oome into play,
and friends and relatives meet swift
death or mutilation at each other's
hands, and tbe homes and the lives
of the survivors are blasted, A dis-
pute on the street, the provocation
of some hasty temper, a recollection
of an old grudge, and the hand instinctively seeks the pistol pocket,
and blood is shed and valuable lives
sacrificed, where in other civilized
countries, in the majority of cases,
nothing more serious would ensue
than k wordy warfare, or at most an
encounter at fisticuffs. Of course
thew ate no doubt thousands of
oases in which the argument of the
pistol is not resorted to, and whiskey
is doubtless partially responsible for
the tragedies of the revolver, which
occur principally perhaps among the
rowdy clan. Our Amerioan cousins
wonld do well to repress either the
revolver or whiskey, or both, if they
wish to pi-eeerve a remnant But
the evils of liar American wide
mecum do not stop here. Somo of
IU eeddest work, perhape, has yet to
be recorded. How many accidents

InadMrtantlf **>iWj**V, wiying
death e-dacrrow Into th. family cir
cle or the playground. Last Monday
at San Francisco a boy shot and
killed his playmate, presumably unintentionally. Only the other day
at Seattle a boy df seven shot and
killed his hfothcr, two year* older,
with his fatherr'a-reyolver whjoh he
got off a shelf. It was an accident,
of course, but the circumstances
were very affecting, and the parents
became frantic with grief. The ills
that flesh is heir to are numerous
enough, in all conscience, without
recklessly adding to them by all'ect-
ing such a dangerous and senseless
toy as the " six-shooter-" Decayed
counts and fresh mummies aro nowhere in obnoxiousness alongside of
the American pistol. But our
neighbors appear to be "getting used"
to it.
After the celebration of the 21th
of May in this city some complaints
wero heard of negligence on the part
of reception committees, but these
complaints could not be mado good,
when it was remembered thnt no
official invitation had been extended
to anyone in particular to participate
in the day's celebration, although it
was understood that all would be
welcome. We do not recollect, however, of any complaints of unfairness
having ever been brought against
Westminster committees on suoh
occasions. It is to be regretted that.
quito the contrary is the case with
respect to the recent Dominion Day
celebration in Vancouver. The protests have been quite numerous, and
considerable dissatisfaction exists.
There is, first, tho protest of tho six
ship captains with respect to the
Yosemite's boat boing allowed to
enter in a race for ship's boats. Dissatisfaction, too, has been expressed
at the way the " tug of wnr" was
conducted. Then there is the very
decided protest in the matter of tbe
hose-reel raco, the Westminstor team
claiming, it would appear on very
good grounds, that they bad fairly
won the race, but had been defrauded of the prize. The latest freak
appears to be the refusal of tho Vancouver baseball club to allow West
minster to have a chance to win the
handsome silver cup offered by Mr.
Hurry Oole, of the Greyhouud Hotel,
Vancouver, to the winner of the
baseball championship of British
Columbia. The understanding was
that Victoria, Vancouver and Westminster would compete for this
trophy. Victoria and Vancouver
played on tho 2nd of July, at the
latter place, according to agreement,
which resulted in a victory for Vancouver. Tt was understood that
Westminstor would dispute the
right to tho cup with the winner of
the 2nd July, on the 4th of tho
same month. Tho Westminster boys
were ready to meet the winners on
the day agreed. The match, however, did not come off, and Saturday
word was received here that the
Vancouver olub were going to hold
on to the cup and had sent it to
Viotoria to be engraved. The fact
that Westminster has defeated Vancouver in baseball twice this season
does not furnish an honorable excuse
for such conduot. If there are any
extenuating circumstances in connection with the charges as recited
above, they should be made known,
or the words of a disgusted West-
minsterian, on returning to this city
after the Dominion Day celebration,
will, whether deservedly or not,
come to be accepted as an axiom.
The expression was: " There isn't a
white mon in Vancouver!"

feomunmholUm, Catalepsy nnd .Hyptoo*
tlsiu Described—Interest his; Examples.
' Familbraa is normal sleep, no one cun
fully einpluia It. It'la,' nevertheless, a
blessed fact. Though it ecema to tuko
one-third fvoin our life, it really prolongs
it hy tho daily renewing o£ vigor.
Somo of the abnormal forms of sleep
exhibit strange phenomena. We need
not dwell on sleep induced by opiates! tho
lethargy of apoplexy, and what Is doubtless akin to it, the sleep of the drunkard,
the conja of Brlght'a disenso aud diabetes,
nud the almost irresistible sleep caused by
freezing cold.
Ihe sleep of somnambulism Is a very
■fctcresting form. Tbo person will get up
and go abroad in tho darkness and into
tlio most dangerous situations wholly
without fear. The power of sight is often
greatly exalted, and soems sometimes
wholly independent of ordinary vision.
Another form Ib that of catalepsy. In
this thero is an entire loss of sensibility
and ordinary consciousness, The limbs
may he,placed in any position, the most
grotesque and uncomfortable, and they.
remain so, as if tbey were made of wax.
Still another form is that of hypnotism,
or mesmerism, Induced on susceptible
subjects by skilled manipulators. The
person becomes Insensible to pain, and
his will Is entirely subject to that of the
experimenter. Tho barest suggestion
through any sense Is sufficient to put tho
person under tbe dominance of the idea
suggested.
Akin to artificial hypnotism is a morbid
condition into which persons of a nervous
organization sometimes fnll. The celebrated "Soho Sleeper" would, forniany
years, fall asleep for a fortnight or more
ut a time, meanwhile exhibiting moro or
less of the peculiar characteristics of hypnotism. Many similar cases might bo,
cited, for hardly a month passes whentha-
newspapers do not tell tho wonderful story
of some "sleeping girl," who has been Hying unconscious for weeks; but some of
the cases nre not only interesting scientifically, but pathetic.
In 1745 the wife of nn English colonel
apparently died. The husband persistently refused to have her buried, aud
•watched over her cold and motionless body'
for eight days. Suddenly, on the bells of
a church ringing, she started up, saying,
"It Is the last prayer-bell; it is timo to
Bo."   «±i*t-^
A lady patient was requesting to havea
hot-water bottle put to.her fact saying, "I
feel"~when sho_passed Jntoncatalcptlo
state, and remained in it three hours. On
opening her eyes, she ended tier sentence,
—" a great cold over my whole body."
FOR GOOD HOirSKIiEKl'KItS.
A Cheap and Easy Wny of Polishing up
....,—    Old Furniture.
' Old furnlturo may ba polished up by
using a shellac varnish prepared as follows.       •*•*••■•*■£ ~
A wide-mouthed bottle, good alcohol, as
much as you want, pint or quart. Shellac added aslougas it will dissolve. Shake
well, set lit a warm place, then chakoonco
In a while. It will kttp in-'.ufinitely if
kept well corked. Should be made several
days before using.
When wanted for uso turn outa littlo
In a saucer (it evaporates quickly). It
should be n little thhuier than good ayrup.
If too thick add a little alcohol. (Jse a
email flat varnish brush. ,
It Is easy to handle and goes into all the
crevices. The alcohol Hies off quickly and
leaves a thin coating of shellac, it is
quickly done, quickly dry, covers scratches
and gives furniture a new look.
Soak the brush when done in alcohol,
cleaning until soft, then it will be ready
fr.r next time. Save the alcohol used hi
cleaning, putting it In thu varnish bottle.

There are somo sympathetic doctors In
Philadelphia who are practically supported by attending a few wealthy women,

have kept tbem alive at all, and that to

A Flow of Language.
Children sometimes hit upon a phrase
which conveys more than pages In which
their elders have striven to set forth
things clearly, and an Instance was afforded recently by a girl of six.
She had been present while her mother
received a call from a neighbor, one at
those Immeasurably voluble women who
ore the terror ol their friends; and after
the caller had departed she said to her
mother with the utmost seriousness:      .
"Mamma, I don't think I like Mn.
Blank. She leaks words all the time."
The "Worship of Preachers. -_
On Sunday, when the pastor of one of

Dr,— was not going to preach. An

TEA DRINKING AND THB TXBTB.
Something for. tlie Intelligent Reader to
«,   Think About.
Some years slnco, when on duty at re*
cruiting stations In the North of England, I took observation on the great
amount ot dlseese hnd loss of teeth existing among the class of men offering themselves, It -became a cause of rejection of
itself in great numbers.
As far an Inquiries'went I was led to
trace lt to the excessive tea drinking Indulged In bythe working classes ln the
manufacturing towns, and this went on
all through the day, whether with food
or not, In fact, instead of 5 o'clock ten
being the Invention of tbe upper classes,
it was fouud to exist to an injurious extent in the working classes long before
that time. •**....•_.
Tea seems to have a peculiar tendency
to cause hyperamta Id the tooth eacs,
leading to Inflammation, and, eventually,
abscess of the fang, with, of coarse, den-
tralgia at every stage. Whether this
special tendency waa due to thelue or
tannin having an elective stftnHy-iot dentine it la not possiblo for rae to say.
It would be curious to kaowlf medical
mon, practicing la such man-uf-tcturlng
districts, had observed the deterioration
of teeth to be coincident with tea drink-
ing.-Britlsh Medical Joarnal. •
FEEDING CATTLE IN FINLAND.
Ara constantly exposed to danger from
CoMi, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
peculiar to tho throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer'a
Cherry Peotoral, promptly ftdmlnls-
terediftffords speedy relief and oure.
Ae a remedy for Whopping Cough,
with' which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during the past win
ter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For thia affection, we
consider this preparation the most effi-
oacious of all the medicine* which have
oome to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst. Preceptress, Home for Little
Wanderers, Donoaster, Md.
My children have been peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
nnd any effective remedy until I com-
menoed administering Ayer's Cherry
Peotoral. This preparation relieves the
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures the complaint; --David G. Starks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
hi my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to the lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, FlaiavlQe,Mmh.
I find no medicine so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, as Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. It saved the life of my
little boy, only six months old, carrying

Whooping Cough I ever saw.—Jane

Juan Ramoro was arrested yesterday,
by constable Carty, in a cabin in tho
•wamp. Juan had filled himself to
the brim with a large quantity of the
soul inspiring ardent, which, rousing
hii many bad qualities, latent in the
houn of soberness, caused him to become anxious to devour some being in
whom he might be able to find something offensive. Finding no one within euy reach Juan turned hii attention to Annie, akloochman with whom
he livei, and gave her auch an unmerciful beating that ihe waa forced to call
the police for protection. Ramero hu
been remanded until to-morrow when
he will probably get hia deserts from

Fisheries Bepert.
The report of the fishery department
of tho imperial board of trade reveals
the enormous importance and magnitude of thia induitry. Over 1X10,000
tons of fish were landed on the coasts
of the united kingdom last year. The
whole value of the catch waa nearly
aix and a half million pound! sterling,
or over thirty-two million dollan. The
share of England and Walei wu about
twenty and a half million dollan,
Scotland eight and a half million, and
Ireland three million, nearly half the
latter amount being for salmon, in
which Scotland waa not far behind.
The Canadian tisheries oamo next to
those of the united kingdom in the
value of their produce.

Friday night when a "inarch out" waa

An Emery Wheel Bnints.
An emery wheel bunt at the Albion
Iron Worki ilove department at eleven
o'clock yesterday morning, breaking
into three pieces, whioh shot upward!
and through the lide of the itove-ihop
building. One ihot acrosa the road
and through a .window in the second
atory of the Weitern Hotel. Such
wm the impetus of the flying miuile
that it pasaad through two partition!
and fell upon a bed in the third room.
The occupant of the bed had riun but
a few minutei before. The other two
piece! fell into the ihop, one burying
itself into the ground. Then wu no
one working at the wheel at the time,
and fortunately there wai no injury
sustained by the workmen. Hod any

the Toronto ExhibMlea.
Mr. Bernard Saunders, one of the
directors of the Toronto exhibition,
writing to a gentleman in thi. cily,
wyi: "I suppose you have aeen that
your litre government after promising
to exhibit will not do ao. It will te
the lut uking tbey will ever get from
our board. Greenway of Manitoba
knowi the value and meani to uu It."
Thii ii rather harsh on tho government
but it wu explained that no money
could be spared thii year to aid
a Brilish Columbia exhibit. The
city of Vancouver ii going to send an
exhibit to Toronto, anil no think
Westminster should follow suit. The
directors will grant oil tlio space necessary and it would lie a very easy matter
indeed to lend a splendid auortment
of vegetable!, grnim, fruit! and wood!
to tha exhibition.    -

The coronet'! inquest on the body
ol Dare Blair, the half-breed found
dead in a stable at Halting!, waa held
by Mr. Ferris at the Brighton hotel on
Saturday. From the evidence it would
appear that Blair and the Indian who
wai wilh him had been drinking very
heavily before leaving Vancouver for
their ride; and they also purchmd two
bottles of brandy to drink on the roid.
One of the bottle! waa emptied before
reaching Hastings; the other waa found
on the ponon of Ihe dead man. On
arriving at Hasting! the men had four
drinks and then Dave became so badly
intoxicated that his friends carried him
to the stable and laid him on lomo hay
to sleep off the offects of the liquor.
Dr. Irving made a postmortem elimination whioh resulted in finding that
apoplexy hod caused Blair'a death. A
verdict wsa returned accordingly.
At the meeting of the teachers' institute at Victoria Mr. H. M. Stramberg, M.A., principal uf iho high
■chool in thii oity, rood a paper untitled "Oui Bonn," which in admitted
to be a logical and brilliant essay, beside! being a much more scholarly and
brilliant elfort than any of the othor
papers read before the institute. The
Colonist, whieh print! the paper in
full, uyi: " Hii paper, ' Cui Bono,'
wu a mignifioent piece of composition.
Its reading wai listened to with the
greatest interest by all present, and
npon concluding tho authur wu deservedly applauded, and tendered a
vote of thanks for his msiterly work."
Thii ii not Mr. Stramberr'. fint production. He hal written papers on

river makes a curve quite close to
Columbia Itreet, and as there happen!
to bo no wharf extending from thii
point, and no railing on the unprotected edge of the plank-way, pedes-
traiui are quite liable to walk off into
the river any dirk night, when a terrible ihock and an uncomfortable
ducking would be received, if nothing
more eerioui wu the remit The proximity of two or threo Baloons mikes
this place all tho more dangerous; not
that there is any fear uf tou much
water being put iulu the whiskey, but
from the notorious fact that men coming out of a wloon are very often seized with an unaccountable dizziness,
when they are just u likely tu walk
into the river as not. The city council
should repair the one or find some antidote for the other.

TknwlBi Dice r.r Bible..
A curious custom wu yeaterday ob-
served in the parish church of St. Ives,
Hunta, says the London Stutidtinl. Dr.
Robert Wilde, who died iu August,
1678, bequeathed foO(*250,)tlie yearly intereit of which wu to be expended in the purchue of lix Bibles, not
exceeding the price ol £1 8i each,
which should be "cist for by dice" on
the communion table every year by six
boyi und lix girls of the town. A
piece of ground wai bought with the
£50, and it U now known u "Bible
Orchard." The legacy alio provided
for the payment of 10 .billing! yearly
to the vicar fnr preaching a aermon on
tha oceuion, "commending the excellency, the perfection and the divine
authority of the Holy Scriptures."
Thii lingular custom hai been regularly observed in the church line*
the death ol the testator, but representations having been made lo the
bishop! of tho diocese, the practice of
throwing the dice on the communion
table wa. discontinued some yean ago,
and tho raffling now takei place on a
tablo erected on the chancel steps.
The highest throw thii year, three
times with three dice, wu 37 by a Utile
girl. The vicar, the Rev. E. Tottenham, preaobed a sermon from the
words, " From a child thou hast known
the Holy Scripture!."
-Henry Clement, Almonte, write!! "For
a long tine I wu troubled with chronic
rheumatism, at times wholly disabled;
I tried anything and everything recommended, but failed to get any benefit,
until a gentleman who wu cured of rheumatism by Dr- Thomu' Eclectric Oil,
told mo about it. I began using it both
internally and externally, and before two
bottles were used I wu radically cund.
We find it a household mcdlolne, and for
croup, burns, cuts, and bruises. It hu
no equal."
