NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Tho Seattle Past-Intelligencer says :
The fool who wants this territory
admitted into the Union under
some other name' than Washington
is beginning to write letters to the
newspapers again. Ho ought to
have died long ago.
An American exchange says: The
Harrison inauguration fund is receiving liberal subscribtions in Washington, and inaguration day of 1889
will bo a grand affair. It is expected that more people wili congregute
in the federal city on that occasion
than have before attended a similar
festival.
■ A New York alderman has found
that it is a praetico of the sinful
contractors of that eity to put into
the sewers an occasional beer keg
instead of two foet of brickwork, the
keg being of exactly the right calibre. It is said upon pretty good
authority that a connection between
a main and a lateral sewer in Toronto lias been made with a flour
barrel.
The plain unvarnished account of
the parting between tho German
Emperor and the Dowager Empress
Victoria, reveals no sign of any estrangement between mother and son.
The faet that the German ambassador in England was requested by his
imperial master to wait upon and
pay due respect to the Dowager
Empress in England is a mark of
respect which disturbs some of the
stories that have been set afloat.
A cose of honesty over trying cir-
uinstances is recorded by the correspondent of a Montreal paper. A
lady lost her purse containing a sum
of money, and advertised the same,
hoping it might be recovered in that
way. So it was to tho loser's agreeable surprise, the purse and contents being returned intact. -The
finder refused to accept any reward,
beyond making a request that the
advertiser would assist him in get-
ting n situation, lie being u stranger
out of work at the beginning of a
cold winter. Under these circumstances, the temptation to keep the
purse must have been great. There
are probably many instances of such
integrity which the world ivevo hears
of.	
Says an exchange : Charles H.
Sampson, a New York strong man,
engaged to slay a steer with his fist.
The -feat wai -performed with a
single blow in the presence of
Emperor Wilhelm and Emperor
Francis Joseph. He wears a handsome decoration commemorating
that event. This fact of skill and
strength was repeated at Ems, Germany, St Petersburg, and Paris,
Mr. Sampson striking but a single
blow upon each of' the occasions
except the last. In this case the
steer was running, and his. aim was
not true, bnt the first blow knocked
the animal down and a second
crushed its skull. During his professional experience this Hereules
has suffered broken arms no less
than seventeen times. He does not
attribute his great strength to any
freak of nature, but says it is tbe
result of careful training and exercise
The newest thing in dinner favors
is a jewelled dagger, not a papier-
mache affair nor yet a stage weapon,
but a keen-bladed dagger, which, if
your neighbor at dinner be not to
your liking or provo tiresome in
conversation, you may use upon him
with speedy and fatal effect. In
the meantime, no murderous tendency taking possession of you, you
are expected to use this weapon to
cut up your meat. The fashion is
an expensive one, because it is important that the hilt be jewelled.
Without the sparkle of the gem to
gratify one's resthetio taste the glitter of the steel will have something
lacking. Truo, there is tho possibility of paste jewels, and, if this
savage fashion grows, doubtless
dealers ill Rhine stones will murk
an advance in trade. No doubt a
dagger drill might be invented to
follow the repast, when the playfully
inclined might smite tho steel together. Thus docs civilization advance with mighty strides.

The Standard Attacks President
Cleveland's Message and Criticizes His Actions.
Tho Baltimore Sun lays: The
public mind is settling down to the
conviction that our presidential contests are fast becoming mere bouts
of money-spending. A victory thui
obtained is, of course, without moral
force, however profitable it may be
for a while to its beneficiaries. The
pooplo cannot, in the long run,
sanction proceedings whioh in effect
pervert their will, and that, too, by
corrupt methods which strike at the
very foundations of free government
Venality must be followed by demoralization and distrust. Patriotism
cannot long survive as a potent force
in our politics if the longest purse it
to determine the settlement of publio questions, When It comes to be
understood that our present economic system is so profitable to the
rich, banded together in trusts and
othor forms of monopoly, that in
order to presorve it they are able
nnd willing to give millions to debauch tho poor, to carry pivotal
states, and thus obtain control of

Children Cry for Pitcher'sCastorla
RIX'ALLKD HER AMUASSAUOR.
London, Deo, 4.—It Ib repotted Hus*
sia has recalled her ambassador from Teheran owing to the refusal of Persia to
grant an exequatur to a Russian consul
at Meshed. Russia has for a long time
endeavored to establish a recognized
agent at Meshed, which Is situated near
tho frontier, and is the harbor of refuge
and the centre of agitation for malcontents of Aghanistan. Kus-na lias been
constantly baffled In her efforts by England who seeks to keep her formidable
rival out of a port from whence tho tatter
could conduct her intrigues in Afghanistan with dangerous effect.
ME. YATRS* CABLE LBTX££,
Nbw York, Dec. 4.—Those who
seo thorn together say that nothing is
more touching than the absolute un-
BelfishnoBs of devotion of the queen to
the Empress Frederick. Tlio queen's
one thought from morning to night is
to minister to her daughter's comfort
and to endeavor to diminish her -grief.
Tho smallest wish of the empress is attended to and carried out with most
affectionate assiduity. The empress
is looking very worn and tired and
Bleeps badly, but.the rest and quiet of
Windsor which she enjoys thoroughly,
and which she and her daughters never
weary of expatiating on, are already
beginning to have a good effect on her
health and spirits. There was something very touohing in the visit of tlie
queen and empress Frederick to Stafford on Tuesday. Bain was following
in torrents as they alighted from the
carriage which brought them from
Paddiugtou. The, empress wore a
heavy cerf of crape which PruBstan
etiquette prescribes. Lady Churchill,
also a widow, carried a cross of white
flowers whioh the queen had prepared
with her own hands, Lord Tarbat received them at the door and they nt
once followed him up stairs to the
room where the duchess waB lying and
the queen placed the cross beside the
body of the dead friend. The recollection of tho last visit she paid to
Stafford House in tho company of her
husbnnd caused the empress to burst
into tears. Both she nud the queen
remained for some time in the green
library where the queen spoke ninny
words of womanly sympathy to Lord
and Lady Stafford, Lord and Lady
Tarbat, Lord Ronald Gower and Lady
Alexandra Leveson Gower, who were
there, and expressed strong hope that
the duke of Sutherland would quickly
return to England.
HOUSEHOLD llEFQRMS.,
: There is no attempt to disguise the
object of the economical reforms in
the royal household. It has become
clear that no parliament will sanction
grants to the grand children of the
queen, excepting only to children of
the Prince of Wales, so her majesty
considers it her imperative duty to
save as much money as possible in
order that all hor descendants may be
adequately provided fo* by herself.
It is quito certain thnt tho Duke b!
Connaught and Princess Beatrice will
be the queen's principal heirs, Her
majesty hns three other families to
look after, namely, those of. the late
Duke of Albany, of tho Princess
Christian and of tho Into Princess
Alice.
SALISBURY IN SCOTLAND.
Lord Salisbury's visit to Edinburgh
has been an unqualified triumph from
beginning to end. There hns not been
a hitch. The meeting in the Corn
Exchange was enthusiastic and as representative as the strongest toiy
could desire. But the most interesting
and striking incident of the whole programme was the presentation of tho
addresses of 02 unionist associations
in the same building on Friday in - tbe
presence of over 6,000 people. Those
who know Scotland know that these
vast meetings and enthusiastic assemblages are tbe sign of fl change that
will be as lasting as the so-called conservatism from which they are a ro*
action.
LADY ■JODiTS' PARTY.
Lady Burdetto Coutts' parties are
ul ways successful aud nothing could
have been pleasanter than her dinner
reception on Wednesday evening.
Among tho guests in Stratton at. Lady
Gal way was conspicuous in black diamonds with her famous crutch stick.
Mrs. Phelps, wife nf the American
minister, lnukcd charming in gray and
gold. Lord Chmwilliam rotated Irish
stories with much huuiur, and Mr. Ed
ward Stanhope Ashmead Bnrtlett discussed the now chief commission ership.
Tho Hov, Homy Whito, of Savoy
Chnpol, stated that out ot the 1500
couples which he hod assisted to join
together only one pair had found marriage a failure.
ALMOST   EXHAUSTED,
London, Dec, 4.—Bulletins from
Rochdnle give little hopo for Mr.
Bright. The chronic disease increases
and the resisting power of tho patient
is nearly exhausted.
THE EMPEKOK PLEASE*.
Vienna, Deo. 4.—The emperor has
written to Count Von Tnafo, president
of the council, saying it haa given him
great pleasure that the people throughout the empire have acted in accordance with his advices on observing the
anniversary of his ascension to the
throne by devoting money to charity
rather than to pompous fetes. They
have in this given another proof of
their loyalty.
PAID TO COMMIT OUTRAGED.
London, Dec. 4,—In the Parnell
commission to-day Thos. O'Connor, son
of a farmer near Castle Island, was on
witneu stand, called by the Times.
He swore that Timothy Harrington,
member of parliament, paid Brosnan
nnd himself tho sum of seven pounds
to commit outrages in 1880.
THE " STANDARD "  SPEAKS.
London, Dec. 4.—The morning
papers indulge! iu long editorials reviewing tho president's message. The
Standard resents the reference to Sackville by saying, "Cleveland's farewell
mossago to congress might have' been
a gracious and dignified composition
if the president could only have effaced
from hia recollection the unsuccessful
electioneering coup by which he sullied his otherwise honorable record.
Englishmen can afford to smilo at such
puerile nonsense for even Cleveland's
own countrymen will not pretend to
tako in good earnest. Vaporings of
this kind were well enough while | the
presidential campaign was on, but it is
post and done with now, and the attempt to exhibit ono of the half-forgotten bits of stage furniture as ti genuine
work of art is a failure. Thero is no
sens*.', no consistency, in Cleveland's
prospective account of a deplorable
transaction. Sackville was technically
wrung no doubt, Mr. Russell Lowell
•?nd Mr. Phelps have committed them-
i elves in the same way, though not iu
.he same degree. It is no ono's interest to perpetuate bad blood."
PRESS COMMENTS ON THE MESSAGE.
London, Dec. 4.—This morning's
Post, commenting on President Cleveland's message to tho American congress, says if the Americans are really
; inclined to resume negotations with «
view to a settlement of tho Canadian
fisheries question they will find the
English'" mfnTstcfrfi willing to moot
them.
The Daily News says: "We would
regret President Cleveland's acrimony
with reference to the Sackville incident
much more if it were not for the fact
that Lord Salisbury set the example.
Mr, Cleveland evident iy possesses
Lord Salisbury's bitterness of tongue,
but otherwise hia message is n great
document."
The Shtnnurd says tho message
could havo been made more dignified
if Mr. Cleveland had effaced from tlie
records, of the recent elections hia unsuccessful cotyi, meaning the Sackville
incident.
The 'CVu'oniWe thinks Mr, Cleveland
uses strong but neverthless true language on the subject of protection.
SHIPPING DISASTER.
London, Dec. 4.—A gale of great
violence prevailed to-day, A tierce
aouth east wind in the channel drove a
great number of vessels in for shelter
at Ramsey, Isle of Man. Many vessels
took shelter in the bay, but were only
discernable at intervals owing to the
dense clowd of spray. At Cardiff the
French str. Louis ran into and sunk
the bark Erminie, of Swan-sea. The
sailing vessels Macedon, of St. John,
and Beaconsfield, of Nova Soatia,
were driven against the pier head and
badly damaged. A despatch last night
snys tho fishing smack Henry Welsley,
of Lowestoft, foundered in tho North
Sea with all hands.
LONDON STOCK MARKET.
London, Deo, 4, > - American stocks
have been firm with influential buying.
Erie, Lake Shore, Union Pacifio and
Norfolk preference have been in demand.
Reading hns been unusually dull. A

AN UNKNOWN VESSEL LOST.
Philadelphia, Nov. 20. — Captain
Chabot, of the French steamship Panama,
reports that 'during n tremenduotts
storm about 8 o'clock at night signals of
a vessel hi distress were seen shooting up
from a dark liulk which was near a level
with the water. Captain Chabot bore
down on the craft as near as possible,
but was unable to get near enough to
rescue tlio crew. Ho could distinctly aee
men oliaging to .the aftorhousc waving
lighteand begging to bo taken off. Ho
believes the vessel to havo been a full
rigged ship. She waa deeply laden and
doubtless foundered with all on board.
Whon he left thorn they wero waving
torches, but after a few moments all the
lights went out.

Texas Siftinos,

Ottawa, Do. 4.—It hat-been announced that the supreme court will deliver
judgement in the crossings Case of the
14th, but I have diroot authority for
the statement Uut no Judgement will
be delivered at-dl. There ia no auit
at law only a request by ihe railway
commission for an opinion of the court,
not on tlio merits of the catt'lUtf M6A
the' mere question of law as limited by
Sir John Thompson, and thi oourt will
simply makea report to the nihiaterof
justice for the information of the
privy council, Tho government may
or may not make it .publio,. just aa
they choose, aud they may ignore the
court's opinion, whleh not being A,
judgment on a auit, haa no force of law
aud binds nobody. Theae being the
facta there will be nothing to prevent
the 0. P. R. instituting a doaen lav
Buita or taking out another injuaction
to hinder tho building of tbe railway
in the spring, even supposing the supreme court goes in favor of tho province. It wili 'settle nothing end
Manitoba may yet be fooled by both
tbe C. P. R. and the railway committee. At least two of the judges of the
supreme court resent a reference to
them which is open to such
an important conclusion aa being in derogation of tho dignity
of the highest judicial body, ana
doubtless their views are shared by-
other members of the court. It ia an
unquestionable fact, at any rate,, that
the conclusions of the court are merely
advice to Messrs. McD6nald,Thompson,
Pope and Calling that there will be no
"judgment" and that theae conclusions
have no legal force or effect, Manitoba
may well ask of thia reference "(Wi

A OLEVER PLOT FRUSTRATED.
St. Thomas, Doc 4.—Two' of the
cleverest cracksmen in the country
havo been stopping in the city forthe
post few days and have beon plotting
for a stupendous robbeiy. The plot
was given away by a third party who
ia u fugitive from the U. S. ana; who
was approached by the two men and
asked to become an accomplice in the
robbery of the Traden' Bank, The
plan sketched out was to secure iqgteaa
by the cellar window and thence to
tho bank and foico an entrance to the
vault with gunpowder. The police
any the attempt would undoubtedly.

Before we can think of annexing
tke United Statei they will have to
reform a thing or two beiide* their
political "nuilieen," monopoly tariff,
»nd "general cuttedneii." An account of a whit* nan being chained
to a wagon and publicl*/ told a* a
■jar* in North America in theie
day* wonld naturally be received
with incredulity, but thit il what
happened the other day, according
to an uchange, in the itate of
Miuachutettl—the cradle of th*
pilgrim father*—the homo of the
Puritan.—the Und of the free. It
Menu that Oharlei T. Parsons, a
notorioM trafficker in immigrant
labor, hu been in the habit of going
periodically to New York and hiring
all the ignorant men ha can find
who an unable to speak Engliih.
After getting potKMion of hi* men
he take* them to hii home at Northampton, Man., and tell* them to
farmen at |,0 or 1*0 a head. The
farmen un them a* lUvet, working,
feeding, »nd houting them juit the
time at they do their cattle. On
the. 20th nit. Pireoni drove to Holy-
oka with one of then immigrant*, *
Rile, in a wagon., Ha palled up at
»tide itreet, and went to nek a
nurohuer, leaving hii victim bound
handi ind fnt with a chain, which
ww fattened to the wagon. The
wretched foreigner wai fonnd in
thii condition by the chief of police,
who, being of an inquiring turn of
mind, brought »bout an expoiure ot
Parson.' operationi. Panom ii now
being pie-touted. If thia man de-
ma pnniihment, what ihould be
tald of the firmer! who were partial
to hit tnniMtiontl It ii to be
hoped for the take of the reputation
of the itate authorities that an effort will be made to bring them alio
to justice. Such an incident coining
to light, in thit age of the world, in
the land whon lymbol it the " bird
of freedom," and in the-near vioinity
of the " hub " of culture, refinement,
and baked beam, it—well, a conundrum, to all except the confirmed
petiimiit
The momentoui queition, "It m*r-
riige »failure 1" having been, by
common content, referred back to
each individual to nttle, according
to hit or her penonal exploration!
in the preraim, and President-elect
Harriion having nlved  the  vexed
auction, "What ahall we do with
keiurpluit" by answering, "Buy
Canada, of coune," tho American
conundrum fiend—ever insatiable—
ii now crying throughout the land:
"What would be don* if Harriion
ud Morton ihould both die before
the elector, from tha leveral itate*
meet to cut their vote* for preii-
dentt" Perhaps the quettion it
prompted in part by a natural, fear
that a juit retribution may overtake
the comparatively innocent choun
onei u a pnniihment tor the lin*
»nd crookedneu of tha party that
elected them. An exchange riaea to
the ocoaiion, and aniwer* the quettion, .ulnUntiallj a. follow.: What
would be done in the event of both
of the lucceuful candidate* dying
between the date of th* election of
elector, and the date of the meeting
oi the electon, it tubject to tho unwritten htw which require* electon
to vote for the candidate* of their
own party. The corutitution plice*
in the handi of the electon the
power to votefor whom tbey pleue,
provided the penon voted for it
eligible, but the unwritten law it
that the electon ihall vote for the
men the party which placed the
electon in nomination thall designate u iU choice. There il nothing
In the corutitution to prevent a
majority of the electon cho*en in
November from voting for aome one
ebo betide* Mr. Harriion or Mr.
Morton. Th* popular idea ii that
th* pretident and vicc-pmident *re
•fleeted on the hrrtTunday after the
fint Mondiy in November, while in
tact it ii only the electon who are
elected. The pretident and vice-
pretident ere elected oo the fint
W*dn**d*y in December, the d»y
provided for by l*w for th* elector!
to meet and out their vote* in their
mpective itate*, The inquirer will
ne, therefore, that a majority of the
electon cbown in November havo
tha power to name new candidate*
it both candidate* named by the
convention of their party ihould die
b-fore th* electon ihould meet, but
inch a coune would not be in to-
ootdanoa with the uiage* governing

Owing to the lack ol-pace, we
were oompelled lait .light to le»ve
over KvenJ clauie. of the president's
meaiage to coograass yitterilay. Referring to the Sackville incident, the
pretident deeply regretted the painful but imperative duty which had
devolved npon him to obtain, with
u littlo delay ai possible, a new
penonal channel of diplomatic internum with the British government Correspondence, which in
due time would be laid before congreu, would, the pretident taid, dia-
clow the unpardonable conduct of
the official referred to. in the offence
itaelf and also in hia subsequent
public declarations to justify hii
action,thu* superadding impugnment
of the executive and senate of the
United State*. The president, continuing on thi* aubject, states, sub-
Itantially, that he politely gave the
Britiih (-government full opportunity
to withdraw the obnoxiou* envoy,
but, failing to recognize their duty,
he wu oompelled to "lack" the
Britiih miniiter himself. On several other matter, of international intereit the preiident'i message reads
u follows: "My endeayon to es-
ttbliih by international co-operation
mouum for the prevention of the
extermination of the fur nil in
Behring Sea have not been related,
and I have hopei of being enabled
I toaubmfl an eStctivennd tntialna-
[ tory conventional project with the
maritime powen for tha approval of
the wnate. The coutal boundary
between our Alukan possessions and
Britiih Oolumbia, I regret to lay,
hu not received the attention demanded by iti importance, according
to the viewi which on leveral ocoa-
•ioni heretofore I have.had the
honor to recommend to congress.
The admitted impracticability of
making accurate and precise turvey
and demarcation of the boundary
line u it ia recited in the treaty
with Russia under which Aluka
wu ceded to us, rendere it absolutely requisite, for the prevention of
international jurisdiction complication, that adequate appropriation for
a reconnaiiiance and survey, lo obtain a proper knowledge of the locality and the geographical features
of the boundary, ihould be author
ized by congreu with u little delay
uponible, The knowledge to lie
only thui obtained ii an enential pre-
requisite to foreigner* for ucertain-
ing a common boundary, or as pre-
liminary to any other mode of settlement It ii much to be desired that
nme agreement ihould be reached
with ber majesty's government
by which damages to life and
property ou the great lakes may be
alleviated by removing or humanely
regulating the obstacles to reciprocal
assistance to wrecked or stnnded
vessels. The actof June 19th,1878,
which offers to Oanadian vessels,
free acceu to our inland waten in
aid of wrecked or disabled vessels,
hu not yet become effective through
the concurrent action by Canada."

Dear Sirs :—I bought one of your Maxwell Bindets last
July, and it has given me the best of satisfaction in every respect
My grain and straw was very heavy, and a good deal of it was
badly lodged, and I thought it could not be cut by machine, but
thanks to the Maxwell machine, it picked it up and cut it like a
charm. I have visited many of the surrounding farms but have
yet failed to sec any grain cut so clean as mine. I feel proud of
the machine and would strongly recommend the Maxwell above
all others. Yours faithfully,

(or tlto Fanny,   y
{Copyright 1883.)
My wife nnd I have recently joined a
bowling club. The first meeting wu
bold on Thursday, and Its memory clings
tome still. I am so lame tbat I can't eat
custard j>ie without assistance. However,
I think very well of tho game, for it bas
made my wife bo much lamer than I am
that I have now a considerable advantage in thoso little differences of opinion
whleh have hitherto made marriage practically a failure for me, I understand
that the other members of the olub are la
much the same condition, but we havo
taken the alley for the winter, and have
fixed the contract so that our heirs, administrators and assigns oan finish up
tho series In cose anything happens to UB
before the season Is over,
The man who owns the alley may survive us Individually, but be will aot get
any the best of our estates,
My wife and I are recent arrivals ta
this part of Brooklyn, so when the idea of
forming the olub occurred to ber sho saw
tho necessity of gotting some help in its
organization. She therefore went to a
lady of ber acquaintance, and It was
agreed that each should invite a couplo
which lu turn should invite another, and
ro on, until tho membership of twenty-
four was made ap. I told my wife that
this was* going It rather blind, and I nm
not -mi-prised to find that among the
members ure several who hnve not spoken
to each other since the Browning club
broko up in n row lost spring. It takes
donii; familiarity with a neighborhood to
enable one to grasp these little differences
of literary opinion.
As our couple we Invited John Holmes
aud his wife, who live next door, Barring
some slight difficulty about a mutual,
ca-operntlvo clothes-line in the rear of our
Iiremisc-i, they have never done us any
harm, and our Invitation was purely dls*
inte rusted. Holmes and I were detained
lu tho city on Thursday evening, so we
telegraphed our wives and they decided
to go together. We were to join tho party
later. The alloy wo have engaged is la
the basement of a building on a corner,
and there Is a saloon over It. Tbat is the
case with a great many corners In Brook*
lyn.
There Is a aloe private entrance to tho
alley at tho sido, but my wife and Mrs.
Holmes did not know It, and they attempted to get in through the saloon,
The gentlemanly and efficient bar-tenders
thorn-lit the women were members of the
W. C. T. U. come to sing a little hymn In
tho interests of the Prohibition ticket,
and they therefore lay down behind the
bar and plugged empty beer mugs over
their ears for fear of being converted.
Tho remainder of tho audience also quickly dispersed.
There was a sign nt one side Indicating
the location of the stairs leading to tho
alleys, aud tbo ladies found their way
down. In the basement there is a partition which divides two alleys on the
left from an equal number on the right,
Weimd engaged those upon the right,
nnd it was therefore only natural that my
wife and Mrs. Holmes should enter the
compartment on the left. Women have
such queer ways of remembering things.
Tho left side had been engaged by a
party of Germans, and two of them had
already arrived. They spoke no English
capuble of comprehension, and the ladles
spoke no German. The conversation
which ensued was voluminous bnt hardly
satisfactory.
Meanwhile our party was assembling
on tbo other side of the partition, Holmes
nnd I arrived.
"There appears to be a political meeting
or a riot of some kind in progress on tbe
otber side," said one of tho members.
I listened. My wifo bas an Idea tbat
lu order to mnko a foreigner understand
it Is only necessary to speak loud enough.
She has the same delusion ln regard to
mo when we differ about something.
Therefore, when I saw a knot drop wearily out of one of the boards of the partition, nnd lie down on tho floor to recuperate, I knew at once what the trouble
was on the other side. - -*_*>+—._^r- -
I went around to explain matters. My
kuowledge of German consists principally
of a few sentences whtch I learned from
a profane Teuton, ln order to be able to
express my feelings properly to our Iceman, who is of thnt nationality. It will
be readily understood thnt they were not
of thnt complimentary nnd conciliatory
character likely to help matters on aa occasion like the present. However, I did
tho best I could with them, but the Im-
prasslon was not altogether favorable.
Thu larger of tho Germans baoked me up
against the spout that holds the balls,
and talked to me lu a way whleh led me
to believe tbat bis command of language
was own greater than that of the man
from whom I bod learned my few choice
little bits. To cut the discussion short, I
casual ly dropped a pony ball on the gentleman's toe, and in the confusion which
ensued we escaped. --    -*
My wife hod never seen a bowling alley
before, and she professed a considerable
contempt for its appearance.
"The Idea of hnvlng all those pins stuck
ap together," she exclaimed. "It's too
easy, They'll all fall down together.
There are too many of them."
Sho was, therefore, very disagreeably
surprised find that there were Just as
many of them after she had rolled the
ball down, ns before. She rolled tho otber
two balls with the same result, and then
declared that the alley wasn't level. It Is
wonderful how quickly some women eon
pick up ugnuie. If my wife had been*
professional she couldn't have said more
about tbe unevenness of tbat alley.
I am uot an expert myself, but I IUC*>
.seeded ln knocking three pins off one corner with the first' ball, Then I knocked1
threo Imaginary pine off the same place
with the other two balls, bat thi ttfflajii-
lng seven stood up like trees,
i When my wife's tarn came igalfi the
repented her previous performance, rolling two balls In one of the "gutters," and
one ln the other. Then she Intimated
that boy hadn't set them up right
Ho sarcastically offered to aet them in
tho gutter the next time lfl the lady
thought she preferred them that way.
Afterwards my wife had an eye out for
tlmt boy, and she drove the small balls
down at htm frantically when she thought
he wasn't looking, He evaded them,
however, by standing behind the pin*
I was endeavoring, meanwhile, to make
an Impression upon tbe ladles of our club
by the graceful and artistic manner of my
bowling. I thought this would be easier
than knocking down so many pins, as
some of the otber fellows did. It was always my belief that a man with legs as
long as mine would be very graceful tf he
ever learned how to manage them. I admit thut my attempts on this first evening were not wholly successful. The alley
was slippery.and my feet slid around tn»
fashion not wholly under my control. X
did not knock any of the other members
dowu with them, owing to extreme caution, on their part. Most of the attention,
however, was monopolised by a man
-named Billings.
"Ob, look at Ur. Billings," exclaimed
. the ladles, when he stepped up to bowl!
•■ he'ii got all the curves.'*
I looked at Billings and agreed with
them. He had more curves than I ever
saw in a man before. Tbey wero In bis
legs, and his arms, and his back. When
begot ready to launch the ball, ho assumed a position expressive of the various
twists he expected It to execute on the
alley. When It had left his hands he
stood looking after It, nnd imagining that
ho was steering It with bis foot and his
mouth, which he twisted b-multaneously
toward the part of tbe alley where he
thought the ball could accomplish tbo
most destruction* It didn't go thero as a
rulo, but the 'expression of bis countenance made tbe plus nervous, and they
sometimes fell down of their own accord
to escape his eye, The ball actually rolled
off the alley.     •*
But the ladles thought Mr. Billings was
very scientific, aad they all began to practice curves, and some of them succeeded
in rolling almost as crooked a ball as Billings did, though they never knew where
It was going.     **-
It'd a curious thing nbouta woman that
when she begins to fed tried with physical exercise, she dips Into it all the moro
furiously. My wife began to get tired toward the middle of tho evening, nnd after
thnt she took tbo biggest balls she could
lift, nnd hurled them with a desperation
that nearly took her arms off.
In this matter Jones set n bad example.
Jouos was the swift bowler of ths club.
Hu was full of a great desire to knock
boards off the back of tbe alley, It Is
wonderful how graceful some men can be
when they think tbe ladles aro watching
them. I bave vainly endeavored to portray Jones's attitude when ho bowled a
particularly speedy ball, but I found niy-
self plaglnrlzlng Miss Rlves'sdescription
iA tho cyclone that used to accompany the
Widow Pomfret in her rambles over the
Vi r.-'l 11. .1 mountains, so I havo left Jones
to i In; [ii'iicil of the artist.
Tint genial gentleman of whom wo
reutud the alley expected to mnke a largo
shnro of his profits on refresh incuts from
thu bar tn the front room upstairs, At
regular intervals a white-robed waiter
came down and wandered about the alley
in tho hope thnt somebody would order
drinks. I pitied nim for tho wistful look
in his eyes, but I had not the change. By
nnd by the proprietor appeared accompanied by two watteis who bore trays
with dishes on them.
" Id's der vree lunge," said the proprietor, "Id don't gost yon nodlngs,"
We all patronized It, aud then we
learned to appreciate tbe proprietor's generosity. It was made of a variety of substances thnt wero salt enough to create
thirst iu the palate of General FIsk.
We called for water, but the proprietor
Informed us that the pipes hud frozen the
previous winter and hadn't been used
since. Then we ordered beer. We had to
do it or dryup nud blow away. Tbe "vree
lunge" had done its work.
There was one covered dish which the
proprietor deposited with considerable
caro on a table.
" Don't open It till you vos done mit
der string," said he, "Id might Inderfere
mit der game."
This naturally stimulated the curiosity
of the ladies, and as soon ta his back was
turned, one of them took off thocover. I
looked at It, and noticed n thin blue vapor
with green polka dots In It, creeping up
out of the dish. It circled around the
celling, and put out n few of the gas jets,
Then it crept down tho alley, nnd the plus
began to fall down and gasp. The air
grew so thick that the balls would'troll
In It. Then I looked In thu dish. It contained cheese sandwiches a la Bismarck.
Wo removed them, and the bodies of such
of our members as had succumbed. Then
we went to the proprietor and he agreed
to have the odor excavated, and some air
pumped In before next Thursday evening,
when we hope to meet again. Onr club Is
uot tlnctuied with Kuow*Notliinglsm,but
we believe In encouraging the home markets lu the matter cf lunch.

OR. JOHN HALL
A Sketch of That Famous rreibytorl.ni
I Divine and Society Man.
A tall, distinguished-looking man, at
the head of an ultra-fnshlonablo church
in Now Vork, Is Br. John Hall. Hu Is a
Presbyterian and bis church Is local nl on
Fifth avenue, He has a round, smootii
face, keen but smiling gray eyes, full uf
intelligence, nnd slightly projecting teeth.
Dr, Hall Is ono of the most met nodical
and business-ltke clergymen ln the New
York pulpit. He receives his regular
parish calls In the morning hours, excepting on Snturdny and Monday, ln the best
parlors of his ultra-stylish home on
West Fifty-sixth street. His conduct of
the mutters that arise In the parish ami
tbat nf ii preseuted to him ln theso calls is
mnrked by great toot and precision, lie
disposes of all business of tbe above nature that comes before him much after
tho manner of a Judge in court. He never
seems lu n hurry, but never wastes a
becond between the stories and maintains
strictly a rule that parties Shall see him
In proper rotation according to the time
of tbelr calling. Of hisbouse nothing cau
be said further than thnt It Is ono of unusual elegance and comfort. He not only
has his salary, which Is said to be 130,000
a year from his churoh, but he gets a
handsome remtineration from the New
York Ledger for a weekly contribution to
its pages. His Income Is further Increased
by contributions to tho great periodicals
of the country. Dr. Hall is essentially a
society man, and If It were not for his remarkable business ability he would not
be able to dispose of his parish work with
sufficient promptness and allow him tho
social diversion which he takes. His
house Is the scene of frequent receptions
and he goes out among fashionable people a great deal, His manner of living is
tbat of a formal society man. For instance, when evening comes ho puts ou
evening dress, and never falls to defer to
the canons of society ln all matters that
appertain tt> form*) tatttcourso with
people.

i'ol, Woodford's Lecture.
1 Mr. Woodford's course uf lectures
ton temperance, -at tho Methodist
church, continuo to prove of great interest nnd the meetings every night
are largely attended. Lust night the
church was comfortably filled and Mr.
Woodford gave a very sensible and
f'iraotical address on temperance and
ntomperance. With the latter ho
seems well acijuainted and his knowledge, of drinking habita clearly shows
that he has been "through the mill"
himself. A very intotesting lecture
ia promised for to-night and all who
wish to profit by it should be on hand
early as tho church is likely to be
packed. A dozen persons signed tbe
pledge last night.

Some ten days ago a number of paragraphs appeared ih'the Victoria Times
which rcfiectcd strongly on the honerity
of Sir MtUhew Bailie Begbie. insinuating, in fact, that, his decision on a
caso could be purchased with money.
The paragraphs wero over the signature of "Town Major".who for some
months lias been in the 'employ of the
Times. In obedience to a summons Mr.
Templematt appeared yesterday before
full bench and claimed that the remarks were written and inserted without his knowledge and that the writer
had been instantly discharged. Mr.
Templ'eman u<Tcred to apologize in any
manner suggested by the court. The
apoloiy was accepted on tho condition
that a retraction and apology in full
be published and'that tho defendent
paid the costs. The "Town Major"
never added much luster to tho famo
of the Times, and his absence from its
columns is a loss no ono will regret.

- -Chas. McNicoll, of Ashcroft, who, in
company- with Geo. Finney, has a
claim on Hat Creek, some 15 miles
northwest from Ashcroft, was iu town
this week, and a Sentinel scribe
learned from him that coal in paying
quantities has been struck. During
the past summer a 0 feot shaft hns
been sunk on the claim 55 feet in
depth. After removing a surface
covering of clay some six Foot in thick*
ness tho first seam was struck, and
seams of various thickness wero penetrated the entire depth of the shaft.
One seam was 16 feet in thickness—
solid coal. It is the intention of the
firm to mine during the winter with
tho present shaft, and next season it
will be sunk another hundred feet.
The coal is being used in and about
Ashcroft every day, and givos entire
satisfaction. Some ten tons havo been
dolivered there already, and Mr. Mo*
Nicboll says they have contracted to
deliver sixty tons more during the
winter, the people in thtt town going
to give it a thorough tost. Tho outlook ia very promising for a large
trade from the Ashcroft mine, and
those who know Charley McNicholl
will be pleased to hear of his success.
Sample sacks will be forwarded to
Kamloops in a few days, and wo shall
then be able to give a better idea of
the value of the coal for cookim* and
heating purposes.— Sentinel.

/Corrospondpiico of MiimilHmb'an.l
It is a mutter of gratification lo all
those who are interested iu temperance
reform to know that the Good Templars of this locality aro doing thoir
utmost to keep the ball in motion, whose
momentum shall eventually overthrow
the plans of thoso who nro engaged in
the liquor traffic, toaohing thorn the
truth of tho old adage that: "Tho best
laid Bchcuu-H cf mice uud men gang aft
ogley."
In tho spring of '84, an attempt was
made to organize a lodge hero, in connection with tho I.O.G.T., but the
promoters of the project worn forced
to succumb to tho pressure of opposing
forces; for, when tho question was
boing agitated, public opinion, when
weighed in the balance of temperance
reform, was found wanting. Throughout the whole municipality of Maple
Ridge only nine persons could bo induced to join hand in hand and fight
manfully against this great foo of
modern civilization — strong drink,
But tho "dead past," has in very truth
"buried its dead," and a now nnd better order of things has arisen. Al*
though this first attempt proved a signal failure, the temperance people
were not disheartened, but in September of tho following year again made
an urgent appeal to the peoplo of this
vicinity to nid them in carying on the
work of temperance reform. Upon
this occasion success crowned their
efforts, and a lodgo wns in duo time
organized, which was designated by
the appellation of New Era Lodge No,
14., 1.0,0.1.
Since then the temperance work has
gone on apace, public sentiment has
becomo thoroughly aroused to the evils
uf intemperance, and the number of
members of the logde has bei-n steadily increasing in spite of the hypochondriac remarks of those who are over
ready to scoff nud jeer nt all who nre
putting forth their best efforts to drive
this great evil from our midst. t New
Era Lodge is tho happy progenitor of
Maple Leaf Juvenile Temple, nnd here
again temperance principles ure being
infused where it is most effectual—in
the plastic mind of tho young. Thus
we havo added to our ranks a noble
corps of enthusiastic workers whoso
young ininds have not yet been contaminated by tho polluting demon that
lurks in tho intoxicating cup, over
ready to lure tho unsuspecting victim
to destruction, ever ready tn gloat in
fiendish glee, whon the confiding in-
nooency and purity of childhood gives
place to his aggressive march.
In response to an appeal of the
grand lodge nn open meeting, conducted under the auspices of the Good
Templars, was held in the Maple Bidgo
school, on Wednesday evening, 28th
inst, Notwithstanding the unfavorable
state of the roads and the threatening
aspect of the weather, a largo audience
assembled at an early hour to hear
what the temperance peoplo had to say.
At 7.30 the meeting-was called to order, the chief templar occupying the
chair. Tho attention of the audience
was captivated by an excellent programme, consisting of addresses, readings, recitations, aoloa and choruses,
Tho latter were very creditably led by
Miss Jennie Trembath, who had taken
a leading part in the preparation of the
"bill of fare" for the evening's entertainment. Tho members of the lodge
were ably assisted by Bev. Mr. Tait,
who delivered an interesting and instructive address on the evils of intemperance, Mr. Spenco, whoso musical talent the people of Maple Ridge
aro not likely to allow to remain dar-
inant, also contributed not a little to
the. evening's entertainment, by singing a Scotch song. Miss Latham, of
Westminster, nlso Bang a solo, entitled
"Temperance Work," the rendering of
which elicited the applause of tho audience. Nor must we forget to mention the maiden effort of the Juvenile
Temple, who appeared en masse on
the stage and sang a chorus. The
blending of tho childish voices, in perfect unison, was indeed an agreeable
feature of tho programme and called
forth a storm of applause from the
audience. Rev. Mr. Stephens brought
forward a resolution to tho effect that
the municipal authorities were open to
publio censure for thoir laxity in enforcing the license act; also that a vote
of thanks be tendered to the magistrates of tbo municipality, for their
having refused to grant liquor licenses
in the past. The resolution was seconded by Mr. Murray and submitted
to tho mooting. An opportunity was
afforded for discussing tho resolution, but not a word was spoken
against it, and when the vote was taken
the resolution was carried with groat
enthusiasm. Before the meeting closed tho proposition book, for membership, waa called into requisition, and a
number consented to havo their names
submitted as would-be members uf
New Era Lodge. It was very gratifying to note the good order that prevailed throughout the evening, proving
beyond a doubt, that the audience
were thoroughly in sympathy with
this, the second meeting of tho kind
held in Maple Ridgo.
