A French ssientist holds that the
human race haa greatly diminished
in size sinco the creation of man,
and says the height of Adam was
over a hundred feet. If this was
tho caso tig trees must have also
been a great deal larger thore than
now.—Ex.
Mrs. Kato M. Sprague, in a recent lecture, says that "one of the
most important acts of life is to
breathe." Thero are few who will
question the truth of this statement.
When a man stops breathing, ho is
of very littlo importance in this
world. Breathing is as essential to
a man's health as eating.-—.Aa!.
The statistician has been computing the number of puffs indulged in
by tobacco-smokers. In Europe
each inhabitant smokes _\\ lbs.,
Holland being by far the smokiest,
with an awful average of 7 lbs. to
each inhabitant. The United Stales
does well, consuming __-$ lbs,« per
inhabitant, while Great Britain and
Ireland get along with \\ lba. The
non-smoker will be startled at
these figures,
An exchange says.- A curious
accident happened to an enterprising
Chinaman and three of his countrymen, who set up a washhouse
directly over a boiling spring in
Oanyon Oity, near Yellowstone
park. While the celestials were
celebrating the Chinese New Year,
the spring or geyser, as it proved to
be, suddenly began spouting, sending
up an immense volume of boiling
water, and shortly afterwards miners
found the bodies of the Ohinamen,
who had been scalded to death, some
distanco from the scene. After
spouting for three hours the geyser
subsided.
Says the Mail: Next month
there will go into force in Newfoundland a novel but wise measure,
namely, Mr. E, P. Morris' system of
insurance for fishermen. Every
master of a Newfoundland fishing
vessel engaged in tho Bank fishery
will be obliged on the first trip of
tho season to deposit fifty cents for
each member of the crew. If any
member of tho crew dies when nt or
by means of his trade, his family is
to receive a proportion ute amount
of the sum laid by. Another part
of the same bill makes it obligatory
ou tho master to see thut every dory
carries a compass and food hermetically sealed sufficient for two
men for four days.
Tho Emperor of Russia recently
decorated and rewarded a private
soldier whose fidelity to his duty
recalls the stories of the Roman
sentinels who perished in tho destruction of Pompeii. When Lhe recent
earthquake destroyed a small Russian town in Central Asia this
soldier was on duty in the military
treasury. Although the houses were
crashing around him this faithful
fellow stood motionless, -waiting
death. The only sign which showed
that he appreciated his situation
wns the fact that he raised his hands
as soldiers do in prayer. Fortunately a sergeant in the streets saw
him amid the ruins nnd instantly
ordered him to quit his post, which
he did right willingly.
To give an idea of the wide range
of the appeals to the judical committee of the Imperial privy council
we may point to the work that was
before them when they resumed
their sitting after the Christmas
vacation. Their first list of causes
contains sixteen appeals, viz,: From
Bengal, four; Viotoria, two; New
South Wales, two, and from British
Honduras, Ragoon, Oude, the Central Provinces, the North-western
Provinces, the Winwarcl Islands
and Constantinople, one eacb. Thore
are also two judgments for delivery
—one in the important dispute
between British Oolumbia and
Canada ns to the right of precious
metals in a vast territory in the
province. Yet the Toronto Globe
sneeringly terms it nn "English"
court Of courso it would bo far
better in the opinion of tho riegeno-
rate organ to take our appeals to
tho supreme court at Washington.
—Empire,
A miraculous escape is recorded
as having taken place at the White
Steam Engine Works, at Newburg,
N.Y., recently. A pulley weighing
nearly eleven tons was being adjusted in a lathe, when suddenly tho
chain by which it was suspended
parted, allowing the wheel to fall
into the pit below, a distance of
eight feet, where it was broken into
eight pieces. At the time the chain
parted, one of tho turners was standing on the hub of the wheel and
was precipitated into the pit below.
Those who witnessed the accident
rushed to the spot, expecting to find
him crushed beneath this enormous
mass of iron, bat he waa discovered
alive and sound, although the pit
was only five feet wide. Of course
the shock was severe, but he was
entirely uninjured, save for a few
scratches received from flying fragments. With a little help he was
able to climb out of the pit, when he
was warmly received and congratulated by his friends and co-workers.

all positions have been decided upon

WANTS AN INVESTIGATION.
Nbw York, Feb. 18.~The World

Germans at Samoa, nnd calls for an investigation by the senate committee on
foreign relations.
FRIGHTFUL EXPLOSION.
Hahtford, Conn., Feb. 18.—The
boiler in the Park Central Hotel, of
this city, blew up with terrifio force at
5 o'clock this morning totally wrecking
the entire front of the structure, which
was a five story brick building. The
entire fire department with police reserves was summoned. The ruins immediately took tire and the work of
tho firemen was greatly, impeded by
dtense volumes of smoke and steam
winch hung over the debris. Tho loss
of life is estimated at from 50 to 75,
but mny be very much less than even
the former figure. Four persona, all
probably fatally injured, have been
takcu from the ruins. Particulars
later.
Later.—About ono o'clock, amid
cheers from the crowd, landlord K.*t-
clium and wife were taken out alive
nnd conscious and able to drink some
oofibe with great relish, and no small
wonder considering they have been
imprisoned in thu cellar in night-
clothes for 8 hours willi floods of chilling wator pouring iu upon them. Walter Gay, a New York agent, was taken
out alive. The dead body of J. O.
Hill, a commercial traveller, was taken
out' Daniel Morrison, a brakeman.
and Fred Haynes, a flagman on the
New England R.R. nre undoubtedly
buried in tho ruins. The hotel waa
built 16 years ago nnd cost, with furniture, 8120,000. The soil was soft,
and although the building wrb carefully
built it soon settled badly. About five
years ago Ketchum took a lease and
renovated nnd furnished the furnished
tho houae. Insurance, 838,000. No
fragment of the boiler has yet been
found, which militates against the
theory of a boiler explosion. The
force of the explosion threw a bed with
a sleeping woman upon it far into the
itreet while one of tho heavy doors of
the house landed a block away. By 9
o'clock the flames were ao far subdued
that rescuers were enabled to get at
some of the victims Some were pinned beneath heavy timbers, upon which
rested masses of masonry, rendering
the work of rescue extremely hazardous. The report that members of the
"Hoodman Blind," Theatrical Cor wero
in the rained hotel is incorrect. They
applied for rooms last night but could
not get them. The dead body of
Dwight H. Buell, of this city, was
takon out at 10 o'clock. The bodies
of Louis H. Bronaon, of Hartford,
and his wife aod child were discovered
at the same time. Harry Stiffle, of
Philadelphia, was taken from the ruins
considerably bruised, but he remarked
that he was "nil right." The house
had accommodation for 100 guests.
Intending guests who applied for
room late ou Saturday were informed
they were full, so it seems probable at
least 80 persons wero in tho house at
Iho time of the explosion, of which
perhaps 20 were employees who occupy
the annex of the houao, whioh has not
yet fallen although in n shaky condition. Mnny are known to be buried
in the ruins. Owing to the destruction
of the register tho mimes of many
guests cannot he ancertained. The
catastrophe is (.-morally supposed to
have been cnused hy thu explosion of
the boiler, although some doubt ii expressed nn this point, aB the building
has been popularly supposed to bu unsafe. Tho work of searching |(>r bodies
ia now going forward in n systematic
manner. At 10 o'clock the military
call was sounded on tlio firo bell, eil-
ling out tho military companies to
arrest iu preservim. order and in the
work of rescue. Up to 4 o'clock 18
bodies havo been rocovored, 10 dead
and 8 stilt living.

James K, Suter, aworn, aaid: 1 am
publisher of the Giturdtuu newspaper;
I have known Mra. Suter for 10 years;
I made an arrangement with her to
lake charge of my house and perforin
all domestic duties for nn allowance ut
§50 per month; she arrived hero ou
the 18th of May, 1877, and commenced
duties at once and has been in my
service ever since; when she came up
here first I was not in very afluent
circumstances and could not pay her
wages regularly, but I kept the houae
well supplied with necessaries and Bhe
seemed perfectly satisfied therewith;
I had some land in Port Moody; In
the fall of 1879 the plaintiff received
some money from her friends in England and by her instructions I deposited the draft in tho savings bank; of
that sum I was permitted to borrow
$400; during 1880, '81 and '82 the
value of property increased very rapidly; during tho fall of '83 and spring of
'841 sold a number of lots ut Port
Moody for 812,000, half cash; I did
not pay her auy of this money as I
wished to improve my oflice building
and purchase more plant; I explained
thia to.the plaintiff and she was perfectly satisfied; towards the end of 1884
the lots were abandoned nnd I did not
receive the aecond payment; Mrs. Suter waa constantly asking me to settle
accounts and in 1880 she wished me
to secure her against ultimate loss; I
promised to Becure her by giving her
certain equities of redemption; this
was in March or April, 1887, and before the libel suit was entered by tho
Hon. Mr. Robsou; About October I
gave instructions to havo tho deeds
made out nud decided to sell her the
half lot on which the office stands, for
§2,000, tho equity of redemption for
81,000.
Mr. R. W. Armstrong was called
nnd proved tho registration on Feb.
10th, 1888, of a mortgage on the Port
Moody property, dated Nov. 1st, 1887;
also the chattel mortgage on the printing plant, which was executed on the
24th day of January and fi lud on tho
25th.
Mr. Suter cross-examine-l by Mr.
■Pavie;-^f> Suter was vory poor
when living in Victoria; I had the
sum of 8150 Bent to me for her; I was
remitting to her portions of this money
from time to time; it was nearly all
gone when I mado this proposition to
her to come and koep houae for mo;
tho gooda iu tho houso whon seized by
the sheriff nearly all belonged to Mrs.
Sutor; in the early pnrt of 1883 Mrs.
Suter began to press me fop her wages;
she kept pressing mo from time to
time; at the end of the year 1 sold
some Port Moody property; in 1886
alio waa more pressing than ever Bhe
was; in '87 ahe was more pressing still;
she was pressing mo for security; I
kept making promises to her; I got
along vory well with Mrs. Suter; wo
had a very pleasant time; in November, 1887, two equities were executed;
in tlio early part of December there
wero two mortgages executed on Port
Moody property; Mrs. Suter ceased
troubling me about the matter in October; I am the proprietor of the
.-U'-ii.i.-iit.. Guardian; I transferred the
property to her; I made no arrangements with her about rent; I pay no
rent; the proceeds of tho newspaper
go towards keeping tho house; there
has been no change made in the management of the journal since; the plant
was sold to satisfy tho execution; the
three documents wero signed one
month before tho trial.
Mr. J. S. Clute testified to all books
and documents rotating to Mrs. Suter's
deposits being transferred from the
savings bank in this city to Ottawa.
Mra. Suter wus recalled and aaked;
"If there had been no suit between
Mr, Suitor and Mr. Robson would you
have pressed your clnim when you
did?" Answer: "I certainly would; I
would not allow tho niatter to go on
nny longer without having it settled."
This concluded the evidence in the
caso, and it being C o'clock the court
adjourned for an hour.
At 7 o'clock tho court ro-assembled

TDPrER-ON CANADA.
London, Feb. »H).-a-Sir Oharles Tupper responded for "Onr Colonial Empire" at the banquet tonight to Lord
Onslow, the new governor of Now Zealand. Regarding rumored political
changes in Canada Sir Charles Tupper
said that the rumors much amused him.
He earnestly hoped that the day wat
far distant when Sir John Macdonald
would be replaced by another num.
As to the rumors of a dissolution of
tho Canadian parliament on the annexation question he wns convinced that
the annexation of Canada by tho United States would not be considered in
our time. If Sir John Macdonald
should ever be succeeded by a French-
Canadian no danger would arrive to
the intimate union of the Dominion
with the Mothor Laud. For the
Queen had no moro loyal or devoted
subjects than tho Canadians of French
decent. The progress of Canada since
confederation had shown that while
desirous of most friendly relations
with the United States Canada by no
means is dependent upon the United
States. No commercial or fiscal consideration operated in favor of such a
union. On the contrary he was absolutely confident that whatever political
party might be in power Canadians
would stand shoulder to shoulder in
emergency to defend and maintain the
Empire. The speech was warmly applauded.

Tho Dominion trade and navigation rotnrus for 1888 show,   among
othor things, that British Oolumbia
paid into tlio Dominion treasury last
year customs duties to  the amount
of $861,400.    Byway of   comparison this is nearly twice as much   as
wus paid by Manitoba.    The amount
is divided among tlie difl'ui'ent ports
of the province as follows:     Nanaimo,   $ ..1,584;   New   Westminster,
$20,748; Vancouver, §50,518;   Victoria,   $748,613.    Commenting  on
the   returns,   the    Colonist   says:
"Theso figures show very clearly the
relative commercial   importance   of
tho seaport towns   of   British   Columbia."   Such may appear to  bo
the case on the surface, .nit a   littlo
examination will show that, although
"figgers can't lie," they may deceive.
In the first place, it should  be  ex
plained that a vory large   share   of
Victoria's duties is paid on Chinese
imports, that Victoria still continues
to do the bulk of the wholesale business of the province—a condition of
things that must shortly   change—
and that, since 0. P. R. connection,
Westminster and   Vanoouver   have
brought a large share of their goods
from the eastern provinces,these,it is
unnecessary to say, being not  dutiable.   Victoria, of course,   imports
from the other provinces to a larger
extent than formerly, but not nearly
to so large an extent proportionately
as the mainland   ports.   Tho   fact,
too, that -Nanaimo is shown by   the
returns  to   have  paid   $41,584 in
customs duties—twice as much   as
Westminster and nearly as much as
Vancouver—calls   for   explanation
before  ono   swallows tho Colonial's
assurance that "these figures  show
very clearly the relative commercial
importance," etc.      Nanaimo,   like
Victoria,   ia   not   so  conveniently
situated   with   respect   to railway
connection with the east as are the
mainland ports,   and   consequently
the old connection., with Sail  Francisco and the States are nnintained,
this trade being, no doubt, assisted
and sustained by the fuct that   vessels ure continually coming to the
Diamond city for coal, when merchandise would be brought very cheaply,
instead   of    ballast.    Vancouver's
figures,  too, although not large, are
.swelled considerably, as well as those
of   Victoria,   by the imports of the
Chinese merchants.    Another tiling
that swells Victoria's imports, at the
expense of this city particularly, and
of   tho   rest of the province, is the
imports from Great Britain, both by
ship direct and via the O.P.K.   By
means of her wholesale houses, Victoria receives nearly all of these, paying the duties there.andthon distributing to tho mainland. English goods
for some of our merchants  in   this
city, coming'via tho   C.P.R.,   actually go through tothe wholesale men
there, and return here after ii needless delay of ten oi twelve days  in
some instances.   Places in the upper
country aro supplied   in   tho   same
way.   This is an unnatural relic of
the  old   days   when Victoria was
British Columbia, and the facts   wc
have cited emphasize the  necessity
and tho opening for wholesale houses
in   this  oity.   Tho   Colonist says,
"these figures show very clearly the
relative commercial importance  of
the seaport towns of British Columbia."   It could,   with equal   truth,
say   that  the   iigurcs in question
showed "very clearly" the  relativo
commercial importance of British Columbia   us un   importing  country,
compared with preceding years.    It
might   also   say   that   tho   figures
• showed the relative commercial   importance of Victoria in ISSS as compared with previou:. years,    But   if
this were to.lfl_.ri for granted, without
any explanation,   as   tho   Colonist
does tho other, we should be forced
to the conclusion that the "commercial importance"   of   Victoria   was
dwindling, nnd that of tlie province
as well.    Tlio returns show:    ISSS,
duties on imports, Victoria,   $748,-
000 (we shall just give round   numbers   for   convenience   in reading);
province, $861,000.    1887, Victoria,
8784,000;province, $8S,.,0Q0. 1886,
Viotoria, $782,000; province, $880,-
000.    1885, Victoria, $852,000; province,   $966,000.    1884,   Viotoria,
§753,000; province, $884,000.   A
comparison of these figures will show
that the amount of dutiable imports
both for Viotoria and tho province
hat not been so low in tho last live
yeans as in 1888, according to the
return*.    Yet   the   Colonist   will
hardly say that " these figures show
very clearly" that the "commercial
importance" of Victoria and of the
province  is  decreasing.    For the
last five vears, respectively,  beginning with  1888, Westminster has
paid tho following round  sums  in
customs duties:   $20,000, $66,000,
$56,000, 963,000, $93,000.   It goes
without saying that the commercial
importance of Westminster, as well
as of the entire province, is increasing, instead of decreasing; and yet,
According to tho   Colonist't.   reasoning,  tha latter absurd  conclusion
would be necessary.
Washington society is getting into
a   reckless humor, according to the
Post   of   tho   political hub of tlio
union,   iu   the   matter of Sabbath
desecration.    Hays the Post:    "The
western ministers, who have become
alarmed lest Gen. Harrison   should
begin   his   administration with an
inaugural ball, where the   ungodly
will assemble, and where the world,
the flesh, and the devil are supposed
to run rampant, would have   something   more   distressing  to protest
against if they were aware  of   the
lack of observance of   the   Sabbath
day that is growing at the national
capital    The lirst day of the week
is not the day of repose required by
the fourth commandment.    In   the
last few months tho tendency   has
been for exclusive   entertainments,
at which there is no less attompt at
pretentiousness than on other   occasions,   except   that   no publicity is
given.    Afternoon teas, diimers,and
musicales are among the enjoyments
in which exclusive society may revel
on the Sabbath day.   Tho   custom
has only to be started   to  become
popular,   and   the   one   day of the
week that before had been   surrendered   to   the  duties  of  a sacred
character   has    now   disappeared
among what is known as the dashing
set.   The excuse given is that it  is
only an extension of the   European
custom to this country, which   unfortunately is not the  caso.    In order that the truth of   history   may
be vindicated it must  bo   recorded
that the custom of Sabbath   entertainments first began amid a circle of
South   American   diplomats,    who
found the Puritanical   Sundays   of
the   northern   hemisphere   incompatible with their   social   temperaments, and they began tho practice
of inviting their frionds to enjoy the
day with them.    It was from   this
occasional diversion that the Sabbath
entertainments became a custom, and
doubtless the practice has becomo a
fixed fact."   Such a state of things
is   eminently   discreditable   to the
capital of the United States, and it
is to be hoped, for decency's and example's sake, that a speedy reformation   may   take   place.   How ean
Uncle Sam, with all his bad habits,
have the gall to propose for the hand
of   the   immaculate   Miss Canada,
whoso   morals   would infallibly bo
corrupted by closer association with
such a "crooked " old fellow .   Seriously, Canada would not be a gainer,
to put it mildly, from a moral standpoint,   by   "assimilation" with the
United States.
The following reflections, ou the
important subject of house ventilation will interest every one, and especially thoso who aro building
houses for residence; An old writer
snys; "When men lived in houses
of reeds, they had constitutions of
onk; when they live in houses of
oak, they have constitutions of
reeds." Evidently tho truth inculcated is that the better the air and
more bountiful its supply, the
healthier is tho inmate of a house,
bu it palace or cottage. Too often
tho very wealth of a houso builder
militates against his splendid mansion becoming that ideal home of
comfort that it should be, and the
inmate of some wretched, leaky little
hovel, perched on a rocky hillside,
will have every advantage over such
a one as regards vigor of body and
elasticity of spirits. Science tells
us that thero is a noeclnd respiration
for tbe walls of our houses, and that,
fortunately for us, whether conscious
of it or not, tlie materials of which
our modem houses are made admit
of the passage of air in a greater or
less degree. Brick, stone, wood, and
mortar, solid as they look to us, are
easily pierced by that volatile fluid
which we call air. Such is the elasticity of air that, fortunately for us,
a slight force ia only needed to put
nnd keep it in motion. The difference of 20° Fahrenheit in tempera-
turo between outdoor air and indoor
air will cause the passage of about
eight cubic feet of air each hour
through every squaro yard of wall
surface made of brick. A plastered
wall also admits of the freo passage
of air, and actually serve;, as an efficient filter by arresting the progress
of dust or any of those particles—
often injurious—with which the atmosphere is laden. Heat i3 the
great motor for ventilation, whether
natural or artificial, and tho great
problem in winter is to introduce a
sufficient quantity of pure warmed
air to make one's room comfortable
without attendant draughts that
shall imperil tho health of their occupants. Open fireplaces, whether
tlie fuel consumed in them be wood
or coal, are among the very host
ventilators that we have, and yet
the question of oxpenso is bringing
them more and more into disuse.
But there is no neod to bo discouraged on that score, because the eyes
of all practical people are being
opened to the importance of combining the twin forces of heat and
ventilation in such a manner as shall
tend, in the future, to prolong life as
well as render it moro comfortable
and enjoyable.

A COQUETTE.
Bow Ruby Howard Waa Taught
a Severe But Valuable Lesson.
"How absurdly diMyrreeablo you can make
yourself, Jack. But there—I'm not going to
quarrel with you. How much longer are
you going to keep mo up to abuso me I" and
Ruby laughed aloud ln hor usual saucy,
tantalising manner. Jack looked at her,
his fuco as black as a thunder-cloud, on
which woe written a stem determination;
but she was In no way appalled by it. On
tlio contrary, sbo looked at him gayly and
t-urelcBsly, us If Bho were perfectly indifferent to him or his moods.
-■.Miss Howard," lio began.
'-Miss Howard," she mimicked, mockingly; "sinco when, pray! How ceremoniously
wo grow, to be sure."
Ho resumed, as If sho had not interrupted
him: "I will not detain you but a moment1
longer. White I am convinced that at tho
present timo you aro perfectly heartless,
owing moro to the unhappy way of your
bi-lngingup and to the influences and fnsh-
|.in of society than to natural hardness of
heart'1— |
"Oh t thanks, thanks awfully, you are too
good," ska broko in again, laughingly. It
wus all as good as a burlesquo to her, accustomed as she was to lovers' rantlngs.
"1 am as firmly convinced," he went on
In so calm a tono that it should have warned
her that this meant more than an ordinary
tiff, "that you lovo mo, but, with your
natural porverseness, will neither acknowledge it to yourself nor me."
As lio said tola—wltb an air of a judge
pronouncing sentence on somo unhappy
prisoner—with his gray eyes fixed on her
face with the sternest gaze* they wero capable of—In Bplte of herself the bloom on her
soft, round cheek deepened to a bright red
and for an Instant hor saucy, mocking eyes
fell before bis. A transient smile passed
over his gloomy faco at this evidence of his
power, and loft it even gloomier than beforo. As he regarded tho lovely, half-shy
fnco before him ho commenced again bitterly; '"And why will you not yield to that
lovo nnd mako us both happy! I will toll
you. You do not wish to bo tied to one; to
receive tho love and homage of one is not to
vnur taste, Oh, no, not for years to come.
If I would wait patiently and in tbo meantime bo always ready to dauco attendance
on ull your whims, not noticing any ono else,
mul always keeping in tho background whon
n desirable flirtation came up, then, perhaps, if you didn't meet some one you preferred to mc, after keeping mo in suBpehse
ull that time, you might graciously condescend to marry me. But I decline to becomo tho slave of any woman; and, as
much as I love you, I am going .to leavo you
forever."
" Un, hai" and her sweet, low laugh rang
out liko a chimo of silvery bells. " Tho plot
thickens. Pleaso go on; it Is as lovely as a
play."
" I know and feel," said Jack, earnestly,
"that we aro especially suited to each othor,
and I believe that ia time you will realize
the truth of what I aay and will regret mc,
even as I regret you now—but ao more.
I've already said too much—moro than I Intended ; good-bye," and with a deep bow lie
turned and left.
"Well, of all things!" sho murmured.
"Foreverl Fudgel I'll seo blm to-morrow
on tho promenade the samo as usual. He
Is delicious, I do like him tho best when lie
asserts himself. He Ib grand when ho gets
enraged. Helooks ao stern and glares so,
nnd is bo unapproachable that I am almost
afraid of bim-the darling;, If I don't look
out ho will end la malting mo marry him
before the season is over. Of course I
shan't marry any ono olio, but I'm not going: to hurry myself; there's plenty of
time." After which sago conclusion sho
went up to hor room in gay spirits, thinking
oftho good timo ahe would havo in making
up with Jack as she had done a number of
times before,
Tho noxt day Miss Ruby failed to meet
Jack as usual In fact a week passed, and
la all that time he had not called. She had
missed his presence from ball and
opera, and overy place that she had graced
with her bright presence. At last, making
a fow inquiries, she found that Jack was
out somewhere on the broad ocean on his
way to China to join his brother, a tea mer*
chant, and was likely to be absent a term
of years.
Although outwardly Ruby managed to
conceal the shook ahe had received, ahe
could not conceal from her own heart tbat
something had gone from her that she
misted and longed for with an indescribable
longing and a wild regret. It was all the
i more maddening that no one was to blame
for her sorrow but herself. The old places
had lost thoir charm. Every thing and
every body was Insipid, flat and monotonous.
' Ahl if ho would only return, how gladly
would she acknowledge hor love, and how
gladly would she marry him at tho earliest
date he wight mention. Had she known
hisnddress at that, time ihe would havo
written to tell bim of her lore and penitence.
Four years after Jack had gone Ruby
was at a fashionable watering place. She
was still the belle of every assemblage
Hor indifference and utter carelessness,
combined with her raro beauty, brought
hor scores of admirers, whom sho drove
almost mad with hor coldness. Bho was
stilt as lovely as ever, but in hor big,
brown eyes there waa a shade of sadness,
and a sbghtly absent look which gavo a
touch of soul to a faco that had heretofore
sparkled with wit, and glowed with gay-
cty and high spirits, but had lacked feeling.
Now it was perfect. If Jack could only seo
her now.
One day ahe wai taking her morning
stroll, and feeling an unaccountable depression of spirits. Ber great eyes wore
wearing their most absent look, and as
they wandered over the crowd, that wai
ever coming and going, ahe started violently, ud her delicate, high-bred foe*
turned u white m tbe fllmy li» it Inr
throat Bhe Hied an absorbed gate oa a
vehicle tbat waa* slowly passing. The oo-
cupants were a broad-shouldered, grand-
looking maa dreued in gray. Hia shapely
head was crowned with a whit* straw hat,
apairof largo, dlsttguring - apec-tclta of
oolored glass completely Md his eyes; hii
firm mouth was shaded with a long brown
mustache, and between hit lips was tbe
Inevitable ci«ar.   No whiskers hid his firm
_EihW5x&
hidden by the crowd, but Ruby's oyes
would have known that face, that form, if
it had been a far moro fleeting glimpse.
Sho drew a long breath, and by tho tioio
the .-cashed her Hotel and looked at horself
in liur room, sho wai startled at tho Joyous
brightness that sparkled in hor oyes and
beamed frum overy foaturo. All day her
face woro an eager, orpectant lock,' her
eyes woro over searchihg for something.
At tlio hop tbat night it waa stiU the same
Bhe1 wtlliifcow tm Baa fcrt-ght her room,
weary and hei.rti.ck.
"Oh," b)ic said aloud, ia a troubled
voice, "docs ho know I am here, and still
remain aloof i"
Bhe sat thero alono, white and sad; hor
face wot with tears; her heart torn with
conflicting emotions, and a terrible fear
thut he had forgotten her. Tho next morning, after a sleepless night, she started
out alone, her cheeks pale, her spirits
drooping. Blic shaped her courso for a
bidden retreat behind the rocks, where she
had often dreamed away hours uninterrupted. As she neared tho place
she saw that her favorite rocky scat wus
already occupied by an intruder. Ho sat
In a desponding attitude, with his head
resting on his band and bis true directed
toward tho sea. Occupied with her own
thoughts, Ruby was about to turn away
without taking any notiee of blm, when he
changed his position, removed a cigar from
his mouth, blow forth a cloud of smoke, and
Ruby saw who it was.
Her footsteps had given no sound on tlio
soft sand. He had not heard her. Sho
stood perfectly still, trembling so that
sho could scarcely stand. Hero was tho
man for whose prosenco Bhe had longed
for all those sad years, aqd now she dared
not speak to him. He might receivo hor
penitence with scorn, and ho might bo married! Terrible, cruel thought 1 While this
was passing through her mind, sho wus
startled by hearing some one coming that
way whistling. Not wishing to be seen, she
sprang behind aconvenlent bowlder, Justin
timo to cscapo the oyes ot the new-comor,
who was tho same man she had scon with
Jack tho day before.
Tho man came up and stopped bosiao
Jack, who said, impatiently: "Why did
you como for mo so sooni"
Why, an' you said 'como in an hour,'
and it is up sure."
1 I don't believe it's up," Jock cried, violently, "but because I nm a poor, blind
stick you think you can fool mo. But you
ctin't. Go away nnd lot me bo in peace if
yon can, and don't dare to como. near mo
iiEttiii under an hour from now. Do you
understand! An hour from now, a whole
hour.
Yes, sir, I understand," replied poor
Peter, deprecatingly, preparing to move off,
after castinga glanco at tho watch ho woro
to make suro of tho time.
| "Stay," called Jack, irritably. "Firsttell
mo if anyone is anywhere insight. I don't
want to sit here as a show for any ono if I
can help it."
I   "Not a soul, sir, to bo teen," responded
Peter, cheerily.
I "Thou clear out," was tho gentle reply.
I After Fetor's retreating form was lost to
view Ruby stolo forth palo and trembling—
her cheeks moist with tears of pity. How
I wretched ho looked—how sad—how sho
Ipitiedltim. Bhe forgot every thing except
her lovo for him and wished to comfort him.
On tho impulse of tho moment sho went to
him and put both soft, round arms arouud
hia nock and laid her cheek against his.
Her sudden embrace aroused him effectually from tbo gloomy thoughts ho was indulging in, and gave him a littlo shock. But
as soon as ho could collect his scattered
senses ho became aware that it was a
woman 1 Yes, a woman I A mad woman,
no doubt! Did sho intend to strangle him,
or what) Tho novelty of it pleased him. Ho
remained perfectly still and awaited developments liko a philosopher.'
"Jack—Jack Hunter, don'tyou know mo?"
said a tearful voico in his ear.
;' "Heavens! Thatvoicol Ruby!" he cried,
doubling!}', but nevertheless throwing both
arms about her and drawing her to
him whilo bo rained kisses on hor face. At
last ho drew her gently down on the rock
beside iiim nnd said; " My darling, words
uro not needed to tell mo it is Ruby, or that
you lovo mc. But tell mc—yon aro still freo
as I ami"
Ho did not ask how, or why sho happened
to ho there. Ho did not caro. That she
was there, was tho one supreme thought of
that happy moment.
1 am still Ruby Howard," she murmured in reply,
"ThankGod 1"ho said, reverently, "und
for this hour. And now, will you, am you—
hcurt of my heart-, marry- me, us 1 am—a
blind man!"
Yes, Jack, gludly, if you will huvo me,
I havo lunged for you ever sinco you loft'
mo," sho whispered. .
My treasurer* ho'crletLt-JtjMtwas cruel
of mo. Wo will novor port again; wo will
get man-led at once— within the week," hu
went oii,in the oagor-ovennasteriug way that
she well remembered. "Your people will not
object, I fondly imagino, for I am rich, you
kuow, aud ull that, besides I am only blind
for a season. My blindness is tho result of
nn accident, happy accident—that brought
mc home to consult a specialist. Ho toils

scu iu six months, and perhaps sooner. Oh,
if Icoitldbut only soo nowl But I cun wait
and 1 would not exchange places with uny one

THE INDIAN DEAD.
Laid lo Rest In tbe Bough* of Vcveni
Trees—The Widow'., ti hunt.
Over in tho northeastern part of the
Whito Earth reservation Is a grave-yard
where Uo tho remains of thoso who uuve
gono to tho happy hunting grounds. Tho
original stylo of burial that prevailed
among tbe tribo before whito men set foot
on tho continent has been followed to some
extent. Tbo graves aro in tbe branches of
big trees. A resting placo for the dead has
beon mado of branches and sticks half
woven together and fastonod to tho limb ot
tho trco, and on those, covered with bark,
and with bow aud arrow on'their bi-c'.sts.
ready for ute ln tlio land oftho great spirit,
tho remains arc laid, high onough to br mil
of roach of wolves, If there arc any, forever
and forever rocked to sleep us thu wind
blows through tho grave. Sometime, at
night, whon tho moon shines in the .'lour
iky, an Indian woman comes frtun her
topoo und sits lu the shadow of tbo grout
oak tree that Is hor husband's grave and
she sings n song—a sort of low, plain.ivo
chant of sorrow for her dead. In nutumn,
says tho Minneapolis Tribune, when the
loaves fall from the tree, ihe gathers thom
aud takes them to ber tepee, whore she
mnltosacouch for her children to sleep on. If
sho piwHCH under the grave of her dead
husband hy daylight sho docs aot look up ut
it, butturuthor eyes to the ground and
gives a sort of mournful cry, as if iho wore
culling to tbo dead man, aad had not the
heart to look to leant If ho had heard her
voico. Bomo dozens of these graves ure
scattered through the timber laud ou the
reservation. Bomo have boon thero for
years, and uro covered with moss and ileiul
loaves. Flocks of blucjnys haunt tho wood
whore thoBe bodies lio, and they send out
screams as mournful us tho scenes around
thorn all duy long. It is a desolate spot
whoro white men seldom go, even ih mil
day, and whero tho only sound that break'
tho solemn stillness nt night in tho song o.
tbo Indian womuu and the cry of a taybrii
wildcat that prowlt through the darkness.
Borne of tho Indians believo thut tbe grunt
spirit comoB down and protects tbo dead,
and when In the winter tho wind makes n
croaking through tho woods tboy say "tho
great spirit is lu the trees," ahd thoy mit
out the fires In tho topwt., .ami, sitting
arouud tho mhos, chant mournfully, and
sit shivering in their blankets till thu wind

THE CHURCHES.
HOLY TRINITY t'llUBCU
The services at Holy Trinity church
were conducted yesterday morning by
tho Venerable Archdeacon Woods, assisted by Rov. Phillip Woods. The
Venerable Archdeacon took his text
from Matthew, 20th chapter titb verse:
"Why stand yo here all tho day idle,"
and preached both au eloquent and
practical sermon. He first explained
that the church obierved certain festivals, certain seasons of prayer and
certain seasons of self-denial. Those
who wished to follow Jobus must deny
themselves somo of this world's pleasures. The cross inuBt bo cheerfully
taken up and tho bearer must follow
Jesus faithfully and earnestly In
many things we must deny ourselves
daily.' The church appoints the next
three weeks as a time for preparation
for Lent and therefore it ahould be a
limcof solf-deuial lo us. Wo are reminded iu the Gospel of the good work
God has prepared fcr us; the whole
race of mankind has been called to
work in God's vineyard and therefore
should not be idle "but take up the
cross and follow Him. Where shall
we work? In God's vineyard—the
soul. Wo all know where the work
lies and whero thu sin lioa which
should bo removed ; so stand not idle
but begin now. The garden of lhe
soul is choked with such a tangled
mass of weeds, thorns and briars which
prevent tho light of God's goodness
entering. But theso sins must bo removed and the garden must bo cleared
of all that chokes the good word. The
venerable archdeacon concluded by
making an earnest appeal to the people to begin preparations so that when
the Lenten Benson arrived their bouIs
might be in a fit state to follow out
tho Church's laws regarding it.
BAPTIST OHUKCII.
At tho Baptist church last evening
Rev. Thos. Baldwin said: I will
read from 6th, 0th anil 7th chapters of
Exodus portions that will form tho
basis of our study this evoning—5th
chap. 2nd verse, 0th chap. 2nd verse
to close of 0th verse, 7th chap. 2nd
verse to close of 5th verso. Infidels
say, "If the Lord hardened Pharoah's
heart and then punished him for what
he did, He can not be juat to man, and
that settles the question.'1 No question should be decided without full
enquiry into its many complicated
parts. It ia established in English
common law that sentence should not
be pronounced until all the facts were
given in evidence. First, did the
prisoner do it at all, under what circumstances, was it with malice aforethought, or did he commit the deed iu
self-defence, uud what extenuating
circumstances wero there ; these have
all to be hoard beforo judgment is left
to tho jury, and while this principle is'
established in the judgment of man
the aamo should bo done when the,
doings of the Creator are considered.
God's providence comes to us in so
many ways that His goodness in not in
many eases readable on the surfnce,but
wo havo to take the antecedent causes. !
God made promises to Hia poople, not
individually, but complex ; not to
Abraham for himself, but to Abraham
as tho representative of tho nation.
As the lint's of God's proviflenqB were
in the majority of casus national, so
Pharoah waa dealt with aa tho 'representative of the nation, nnd that alters
lln; case. Nation;, have no soul, no
future, and if God has to punish as a
nation lie must do it for the time
being. Didn't. God punish America
for the horrors of the slavery of the
South? He had to punish in the
present sense, and is not that shown
in His dealings withother nations) To
Abraham God said: "I will call
thee, etc.," and "In thee will 1. lualte
a covenant." God made A-_.ral.am a
truBteo, and when God made promisea
to Abraham it was for Israel. When
your wife placed confidence in you,
you promised not only to succor her,
but to defend her, nnd if a man is
gutting m at the window it is your
duty to encounter him in her defence,
God promises two things—to be a provider and defender. When you make
a deed you warrant it against encumbrance, you dofend the buyer againBt
any indebtedness; on your part, you
not only givo them possession, but
you givo them Hub protection ; and
God gives His poople possession, "You
shall go into that country/' but He
nlso protects thom. Tho sinner says,
God is a good God and Ho woutpunislt.
But sido by aide are His promisus and
His judgments, Over tho mountain
He sees this peoplo groaning under a
terrible bondage, and He says, I will
reacue them, I will deal cut justice ;
and ao, in a national sense, tho question opens up between God, Pharoah,
and His people, and when you natrow
up |vou contract into dealing with God
and Pharoah alone. You do wrong.
God looks ahead-sees the extraordinary
sorrow of His people, and says that He
will punish the Egyptians. If a judge
here, after the crime was proved, sentenced tho prisoner, then commuted
the sentence aud let him loose upon
tho community again, the whole community would bo up in arms at once,
but when God keeps His promise you
question His wisdom, and in tlio ordor
of civilization Ho is keeping His
promise to-day. Pharoah deserved
punishment, he was responsible; never
were a people moro favored. In the 7
year's famine they would havo been
extermin-ited but fnr Joseph. Black-
Btone says that when a law passes and
is published, and a man comes and
commits an offence against that law, it
is no extenuation to plead ignorance ;
he should have known tho law. God
published to Egypt His clemency nnd
HiB favor, in tho miraculous increase
of the Hebrew nation; that left
Pharaoh without excuse ; but Pharaoh
by edict ordered the nurses to put to
death the male children. But these
midwives refused to commit the
atrocities ; aud against these signs,
these protests, still moro did Pharoah
oppress them with all manner of tyr-
rany, revolting tyrrany, so hard that
they groaned under it, and God heard
their ery and respected His covenant,
and went down to deliver them.
That alters tho complexion of tho case.
Pharoah said: "Who is the Lord,
that I ahould obey His voice and let
Israel go?" But wken the mighty,
power of God was wrought upon him
and his people, he came down .into
different tones; and thli to-day
teaches ui that God's wrath ii terrible
to contemplate, His frown is our hell;
and if the smiling countenance and
beneficial hand in the many ways He
blesses means anything, what if He
turns, and wo, too, ery for the rocks
and mountains to fait on us, It is not
n question of fire or brimstone, literally, but if we have God's frown it will
be sufficient, God's judgments and
power is enough to cops with evory
evil nation, and no man raises his
hand against His people, His word or
His  work  shall  prosper.    As   Pope
Pius IX invoked the aid of the civil
power, the same power God used
against him. "He that taketh the
sword shall perish by the sword," and
in dealing with Pharoah God was only
defending a promise, and wo never find
God using supererogation, never find
Him doing things not necessary; this
man's heart was foul, hard, alienated,
not subject to God's will; do you
think that God needed to harden His
heart past the Hebrew meaning ? My
impression is that what was true in
Pharoah's case, is tiuo in our's to-day,
that all the softening influences you
and I have is the bearing of God's
Spirit upon us, and tho spirit of enterprise, travel, discovery, architecture,
ull achievements of the last half century, are the result of the direct striving of the Spirit of God,and we ought
1 to recognize nnd ascribe to Him Hisdue,
and here he has mado a promise of
eternal life, and if you, the most uniformed, will accept his promise, he
litis prepared a place for you to dwell,
bye uud bye. He has shown Hii love
by the universality of His goodness,
and by our being accepted into the
brotherhood of Christ. By these I
argue myself into n faith that will
go through fire and water, and, in view
of God's faithfulness to His people,
I warn you to fly away from Hie
enemies and escape His judgments,
and may it be thnt nono of us come
abort of His glory,
Tho rev. gentleman evinces a desire
for punctuality by opening tho servico
"on time,1' and it would be well if the
congregation wero to second his efforts
in this matter as there seems to be no
reason why they should not discon-
tinue the habit of interrupting the service by coming in late. Mr. Rasure
conducted tho after meeting.
METHODIST CHURCH.
At tho Methodist church yesterday
morning Rev. Mr. McKay of Vancouver assisted the pastor in tho service,
and spoko of God's forgiveness, from
Hebrews 10 o., 17 v.,—"And their sins
and inquiries will 1 remember no
more," and quoted a number of passages in tho Old and New TeBtament.
to prove it was God's nature to forgive,
contrasting the character of His forgiveness—* its abundance, and infinite
perfect nessB—a s againBt Man's contracted, narrow, incomplete, halfway
forgiveness. Sin onco forgiven by God
would nevor be laid to our charge
again, would be remembered no more,
and as a cloud under the influence of
of tho sun be blotted out forever, and
and separate from us as far as the east
in infinite space is from tho west, and
when we approach Him for forgiveness
He expects that we forgive eveu as He
forgives. The reverend gentleman
quoted from Psalm 130 c.,4v., Daniel
Sic, 0v., Psalms 103c. 3 and 10v„ Isiah
55 o., 7 v., 44 c, 22 v., Micah 7c., 19
v., li.phesains 4 c, 32 v., to prove the
various points of his subject.
In tho evening ovangilustio services
were commenced and will be continued
roughout the week.
