*A man in California has played
78,832 games of whist during llie

Tlio Arkansan Oity Traveler says:
Au Oklahoma-bound wagon, which
passed through last evening, boro
the inscription : "Chintz bugged in
Illinoy, sicloaned in Newbrasky,
white caped in Missoury, prohibited
in Kansas,   Oaklahomy   or   Bust."
"You aro late this afternoon I"
said the music teacher to his banged
and powdered young lady pupil.
"Yes," said tho damsel, swishing
down on the music stool. "Ma was
so busy with her household duties
that I had to wait nearly half an
hour for her to sew up a rip in one
of my kid gloves." Comment is
unnecessary.
It has occurred to a member of
the British Royal .Geographical
Society that it will bo very singular
if Emin Pasha has nob taken advantage of the means of communication offered by Stanley and sent

letters. The presumption is that
they have been sent and kept from
tho public for reasons best known
to tho recipients.

The New Haven News, speaking
of the receipt of an advertisement
from a builder written on a piece of
pine board, remarks : "The proofreader spent half an hour boring a
hole through it with hi? scissors
that he might follow instructions to
hang all 'dead' copy on tho hook.
ln order to save time and shears,
and to keep peace in tho office, we
would ask that our carpenter patrons
bore holes in thoir advertisements
before forwarding them."
The fishermen of tho bay of
Qui nte are alarmed at the fact that
a petition is being promoted winch
seems likely to do them a serious
injury by the disposal of tho fishing
rights to sportsmen who are willing lo pay for the privilege. A
prominent fish merchant of Kingston soys that 200 men will be thrown
ont of employment if the prayer of
tho petition is granted. No doubt
this fact will have its due weight-
as it ought—when tho matter comes
before the proper authorities.
The St. John, N.B., Sun, Conservative, characterizes the agreement
between tho Dominion government
and the Canadian Paciiic Railway-
as to thu Harvey-Salisbury line as
"an improvident arrangement." It
says : "The objection to the proposed Short Line railway is not that
it gives Halifax any great advantages in distance over the present
line. This iH the very thing which
tho Harvny-Salisbury line does not
appear to do. Tho true objection to
the expense of building the road is
on the score of improvidence."
A train in Arizona was boarded
by robbers, who went through the
luckless passengers. One of them
happened to beaHebrew "drummer"
from Now York, who, when his turn
came, with fear and reluctance
fished out two hundred dollars. Ho
rapidly took four dollars from the
pile and placed it in his vest pocket.
"What do you mean by thut?" asked
tho gentle robber, as he toyed with
his revolver. Hurriedly came the
answer: "Mino frent, you surely
would not refuse mo a two per zent.

Canada Iiab pulled in her latch-
string. Her territory is no longer a
haven of refuge und safety for fleeting murderers, counterfeiters,
forgers, embezzlers, kidnapper.-,
perjurers, and othor fugitive criminals from the United States. The
law will go into effect after proclamation by tho governor-general.
This is an act of good neighbourhood
to which tho United Stales should
respond with all convenient huste.
The repression and punishment of
crime will be much facilitated when
it shall no longer be possible for a
criminal to skip over the border on
a frontior lino extending across the
continent, and bid defiance to the
law.—-Philadelphia Eeconl.
Tho Mail's London, Ont, correspondent, writing on tho 28th ult.,
says: Tho Canadian Pacific railway exhibition car was viewed by
srtiri'H of people at the Grand Trunk
tlupot yosterday. The exhibit is a
most interesting ono and is composed
of grains, roots, and grasses from
tho great fertile region between
Winnipeg and Calgary, in addition
to fruits and minorals from British
Columbia, Fifty specimens of
grasses occupy n'space along tho
side of the car, and are arranged
vory neatly, Tho mineral exhibit
is vory fine and proves that thore is
an immoAsurablo wealth for Canada
in that direction, One specimen of
silver ore yields 000 to 1,600 ounces
per ton, and some of the gold quart?
from the Keiter river divide is also
very rich,

THE FRENCH EXHIBITION.
London, May fi.—It transpires that
Lord Lytton, tho British ambassador
to France, was rrally desirous of ro*
msining in Paris to witness the opening of the exposition and plainly intimated his wish to the foreign officer.
The queen, however, commanded that
his lordship should withdraw from the
French capital, at the samo time informing Lord Salisbury that it would
never do for tho minister of a royal
house to participate in or even countenance a ceremony designed to commemorate the overthrow of royalty.
The tory press adopt a similar view in
their comments upon tho opening of
the, exhibition. They profess to forgive the revolulionis'.s for theso rebellious acts, but do not condone thoir
e<ce*ses, nor do they admit tlie benefits of a republican form of government, which is the ultimate result of
that struggle. On the whole the conservative press cau seo no reason for
the exposition, neither can they bring
themselves to believo that it will bo
otherwise than n miserable failure,
FRENCH AGGRESSION.
London, Mny (i.-In tho House uf
Commons to-night, Sir James Ferguson in replying to a question on behalf of the government, f aid that her
Majesty's ttovcrninont will support
British subjects engaged iu the lobster
fishery on tho Funeh shore of Newfoundland, provided that they du not
interfere with French treaty rights.
The position of British and French
fishery rights in Newfoundland is not
free uf difficulties. Hitherto they
have been generally prevented, from
becoming acute by tbe provincial government and the. officers concerned
here hoped that a liko success would
attend thoir proceedings in the future.
The last news of France's aggression
on Newfoundland has rather disturbed
tho minds of some British politicians,
who aro urging tbe government to take
prompt and effective measures to support British interests on the French
she-re. The government, however,
seems to entertain little hope uf arriving at a settlement, especially in view
of the ill feeling created in France by
British action with regard to the sugar
bounties, and in receiving General.
Boulanger with open arms while refusing to take an official part in the French
exhibition. The question will, however, bo raised in the House'of Commons shortly. Many Liberals are
strongly opposed to what they regard
as au unfriendly action of the government towards France in deference to
the wishes of Germany.

iu tho speech iu question he found the
remarks, nInch Sir Richard Webster
quoted on Friday,   referred partioW
lnrly to Ribbormtii ana Ribbon societies, and  not  to  secret  conspiracies
generally.    "Therefore*,1' Hid Parnell,
"the statement I made in tbe house of I
commons'was fairly accurate  in  foots
and was that Ribbonism practically did
not exist at that time." "His statement
caused quite u sensation in court.   !Sir,
Richard" WbbBter then 'prodeedeitlwith '

Parnell said ho had never heard that I
a hundred guineas had been -paid ..fur..
the defence of the moonlighters at tho |
Cork assizes in 1831.   If he hid been
asked to make  auch  payments,   tbe
witness said that  in   those  days  he
would have approved of doing' so for
the defence of the men,- if hb had rea-- •
eon to believe that the law. was  being,
strained against _ them.. The. genenl
rule, however, was to limit; such, payments a's far as possible.'' He remembered otic case where such a. payment
of money was sanctioned and the man
was acquitted.    In anbthor  case  the
witness ■reimbursed Harris, who himself  was responsible for tho defence,;
of the prisoner, at the  same time  he'
instructed Harris  nut  to  undertake ',
like defences in future.

.ppears on the surface even, as the
question is not only one affecting
the revenue of tbe oity, but its borrowing power as well. The government will be perfectly satisfied that
the judgment of the court hu gone
in favor of Ihe city( for, to do

no hostility in the matter, but
simply a desire that the point ai

The council are to be commended
for their prompt and judiciou. aetion
Ust night in the matter of th. expropriation of In Wolff', property,
for street purposes. Knot the most
important action whieh the council
In* taken this year, it is undoubtedly one of the moat important, for
the reason that no such opportunity
m the present was ever likely to
offer .gain for consummating so
desirable and necessary an object as
the extension, of Medcensie street
through to Front. Th. lot in question w.s vacant, and only for a short
time; property owners on either aid*
were aniious for tbe street ext-n-
.io»; and volunteered to stand Hi-
000 of the cost; negotiaiioaM with
the owner of the lot hod reached a
head; and it only rMkained for tbe
council to do, aa they here done,
•nd accept the fairly re.son.Ue
Bropcaition of Mr.  Wolff., to  take
, |10,600 for bis lot. Th. deal actually cosU tfast city' only, $6,500,
(probably only 16,006 will be paid),
thus secoring a most important
-sdmntage iucomp.nbly cheaper
than there oould be uny hope of
- doing in th. future. It is. wonder
that.ny of the councillor, ihould
have, '""'f'fi* -*T''M*r*T** about
wttling a matter, so favorably for
the city, which should have been
settled long ago, and in .ny .vent
would hove to be dealt with some
tine, sod: greatly to th. city's
damage, had1 the present council
failed in their duty and shirked the,
question again, which we *re happy
to aanounc. they did not;
Tto ohiheellor of the exch.qu.or,
Mr. Cro-ehen, b««, is presenting his
budget to the? Imperial parliament,
given the newspapers of Great Britain a grand gratuitous advertisment.
The sale of coffee had,   he  said,
largely fallen off of late, owing to the
persistent advertising of their wares
by the dealers in cocoa, the result of
whioh was the establishment of a
tremendous trade in that commodity.
Starting out with such an undeniably telling text, the Dominion Illustrated improves the occasion by the
following pertinent observations: No
more significant statement was, perhaps, ever made by a finance minister.   Here we are informed, on the
highest authority, that continuous
advertising had succeeded,  in the
course of a comparatively brief period,
in producing what is equivalent to a
dietetic revolution in British society.
No more emphatic tribute wa. ever
paid to one of the most imporUnt
functions of the newspaper and periodical press. There is nothing, probably, inthe range of human habit
on which it is more difficult to work
a change than the articles of food to
which daily use has accustomed a
community.   And of  such articles
there are none which, in the course
ot generations, have acquired such
an undisputed right to their places
on the British breakfast table as the
tea-urn and the coffee-pot.    If a law
were passed prohibiting the use of
tea  or coffee to the British householder he would be t wise or bold
statesman who would answer for the
consequences.   Temperance reformers may contemplate with   complacency tbe gradual creation of such a
change » publio sentiment that the
British workman will no longer look
upon his beer as an inalienable right.
But they have not yet ventured to
propose an interdict on the tea and
coffee of the British millions.   Yet,
without the least agitation, without
mass meetings, without the aid of
either pulpit or platfoiin, the thing
hU been  brought to pass in thousand, of homes, the inmates of which
hav.   consented   to  forego their
habitual beverages.   How was the
marvel accomplished! Simply by the
insertion in certain newspapers and
magatines of a  few business-like
word, recommending a rival com
modity.   This is an economic fact of
some importance, or the chancellor
of the  exchequer would  not have
deemed it worth mentioning.   But
it bu also a lesson of deep interest

sell. It reveals, in a most striking
manner, the wondrous power of advertising, and it is worth while to
make inquiry as to the kind of advertising whioh produced so remarkable a result. If anoticeof anything—a meeting, an action, some
specialty in food and dress, or a
home to let or sell—appears a single
time in the column, of a journal in
the ordinary way end is paid for—
we call that an ad vertisement. But
advertising, such a. Mr. Goschen
dad in hia- mind, was something
more than that. It was persistent
idyertising; Only pjfsistent adver-
tising can have any effect on a busy,
versatile, frivolous and distraught
public What is seen once or twice
fades from memory. To impel the
publio mind with determination in
any direction, it is necessary to agitate, whatever the object, question
or cause at ateke may be. A single
grave and luoid article, lecture,
speech or sermon may suffice to inspire a few earnest minds with fervor of purpose strong enough to
carry them to the goal of accomplishment. But the mas. of mankind is
hard to move, hard even to touch.
The same truth, however obvious it
may seem to the initiated, must hr
repeated over and over many tints*,
before it begins to make an imprtt-
iion on the many. It is the sua.
with advertising. An advertisement
may be seen a dozen time, liefer* it
ia even read. But gradually it win.
its way to the inner conjcMO-mea.
.nd then it is never forgottor*. Such
a maker's name is henceforth associated with such a commodity and tptis
teparabitt There ate article, which
we could easily mention that it .would
be well nigh impossible to disconnect from certain.names. Nor is
there the least likelihood that the
owners of those, names ever regretted
the outlay to, which that association
ot ideas is due. The men whose
name, ban thus literally become
household1 words stndied advertising
wan art—the art of capturing and
keeping: the attention, the interest,
the, sympathy, the custom of the
public.

Msn Who Make Fortunes Out of
the Refuse in Meat.
How Horns, Hoofs, Bones and Every Portion of Slaughtered Beet Aro UtUUed
-A Number of Industries Peculiar to Chicago.  .
Of all the products that como Into Chicago market beef is tho most effectually
utilized, nays the Chicago -BfdfE. From tho
timo a beef leaven tho pasture until its
Htealrs aro served by somo fashionable
caterer, it haa passed tin-ought several
thousand hands, and has contributor] either
directly or indirectly to several hundred
distinct and separate industries.
In no city in tho world is tho principle of
the diviBon of labor moro strikingly exemplified than in Chicago, with hor manifold
industries dependent on the tralllc In beef.
Ono would naturally Buppose that beef was
so plentiful and cheap in a central market
like Chicago that no ono would think of
making a special businoss of utilizing what
In many cities is cast away as refuse. But
tho very fact that Chicago is so great a
beef market renders it possiblo for almost
overy ounce of beet to be pat to somo practical uso.
There has grown up in this city within
the post ten years tho largest bone and tallow industries in tills country. Thoso industries havo not only served to build up
immense private fortunes, but, as an officer
of the Board of Health said recently, they
liavo been of untold valuo to Chicago in fl
sanitary pointof view.
This may seem at flrst thought a curious
statement. But the explanation is simple
A bono and tallow factory Is not a desirable
neighbor, as every ono knows wbo has
over had the misfortune to livo within
scenting distance of such an establishment,
and yet tho odor is neither so unpleasant
nor nearly so unwho-osome as many other
exhalations from tho Stock Yards. The
bono and tallow factory serves as a convenient repository and crematory of tho
offal from the butcher shops, ln a city like
Chicago thero must necessarily be at every
large butcher shop a large amount of good
meat remaining over each day unsold. To
romovo this meat to somo "suburban dumping-place would entail considerable oxponso
on the butcher, and ho would in mnny instances, bo tempted to let economic considerations take prcferonco over regard for
public health. Tho dealer in bones buys off
the butchor whatever is worth paying for
in the way of bones, horns, hoofs, hide, tallow, meat, and hauls it away, and often gets
for the mere hauling away moat that would
soon becomo a nuisance to the butcher, but
which can bo turned to somo practical account at tho tallow factory. All of tho leading butchers of Chicago havo now come to
depend on the bone and tallow dealers to
relievo them of what thoy can not dispose
of to their regular customer--.
To facilitate in ascertaining tho price of
the commodity it is usual for tho butcher to
sort it. Forimi'mico, ho puts all the kidney
suet in ono 1. :tc1, tho flank tallow in
another, the soup-bones iu another, and tho
wasto meat in another. Thoso are all
sorted in tho order of valuo. If tho buchor
fails to do the sorting himself, ho is obliged
to soil for a lower price, ns tho work of
sorting aftor tho stuff is onco mixed is both
difficult aud unpleasant and frequently
costs moro than it is really worth. Tho
bono and tallow dealer sends out his wagons ovory day to different parts of tho city
to buy up tho butchers' refuse. Each wagon has a regular route and makes regular
trips nt Btated intervals. Tho loads are
brought into tho factory and distributed to
appropriate places. All of tho tallow is put
into a vast caldron ana rendered into tlio
form in which it is found in commerce
Thero aro a number of steps in the refining
process, but thoy vary according to tho
purity of tho article when It comes Into tho
factory. Tho bones form a curious collection, and suggost at onco tho prophet's
vision in tho Old Testament. Hero aro tbo
bleached skulU of oxen, with yawning jaws,
grinning teeth and empty sockets, Thoy
seem almost to speak from out their grim
receptacle some legend of tbo Humane Society. Occasionally a huge skull happens
to have a pair of cross-bones near it, and
suggests tho ghoulish emblem of tho
death's head.
Tho bones aro of all sIzob and ages.
Thero are the dry.bones that havo lain
bleaching for months on tho prairio and
have been gathored by somo economic
farmer and shipped to Chicago for a few
cents more than paid tho freight. Thon
there nre the juicy soup-bones fresh from
tho butcher-shop. But theso must go
through many transformations beforo they
nro ready for tho market, First they aro
cooked and tho grease all extracted. This
grease Ib converted into lubricating oils,
Tho bonos aro next put to soak in a
tank with water running constantly in and
out Thus thoy are cleaned. When all
greasy impurities are removed tho bones
aro laid out to dry and are ready to join
company with their congeners of tho plains.
Tbey are dropped into a gigantic hopper and
ground to a coarse flour or dust. Tho mill
grinds with a hungry greed and rarely receives a mouthful too difficult for its pawor
of mastication. The bone dust Ib weighed,
bagged, sorted and shipped to all parts of
! tho country where fertilizing material iB
i needed. One of the moat valuable products
of the establishment is gluo. This is made
of the hoofs of oattle. There is a secret
process in its manufacture that is always
carof ully guarded and is known to only one
man. His is ouo of thoso peculiar trade secret that no patent right would properly
protect. In this It resembles the secret of
making porcelain, possessed only by the
Meissen (Saxony) porcelain potters. Tlie
hoofs aro subjected to somo process by
which they are turned into liquid. This
liquid comes out resembling lu color and
consistency Kew Orleans molasses, It le
fun into cooling-pans, where it becomes partially solid. Then it is cut into cakes like
giugorbreod, and allowed to harden, and is
thon broken iuto smull pieces and placed in
barrels ready to bo shipped.
The horns furnish in themselves material
for two or threo different Industries. Tho
largo, curving horns of Texas cattlo are
made into house ornaments. The horns aro
also usod for muklng ornamental chairs und
other pieces of furniture, n taste for whleh
bas becomo of lato years exceedingly widespread. The ordinary horns aro turned into
buttons of all kinds, and hunters' and ilsh-
ors' furnishings,
DROPPED INTO THE. SEA.
A Boy's Miraculous Escape from a Savage
Ocean Vulture,
An old sea captain Bays, ln relating a re*
cent incident in his experience to a Ban
Francisco Examiner reporter: "One day
tho mote's son, a tod of fifteen years, fob
ovorboard. A sailor namod Banning leaped
into the water after him. The sea wator hi
this neighborhood Ib so cold that u man can
not live much longer than twooty-ilvo or
thirty minutes in it. The attention of every
mun on board was given to tho two men in
tho water, but when ono sailor raised his
oyes and saw an enormous bird making direct for the boy hb emitted a ory of terror,
which was joined In by overy one as soon as
tbey saw It, It did not resemble a cloud,
hor did It carry a rock in its talens, but It
was on enormous creature that no two mon
would caro to battlo with undor any circumstances. When Banning raised hia
eyos and oaw tho bird his flrst thought was
to turn around and mako for the ship, Fear
took possession of him, and his strokes
grow less powerful. Seeing Banning's
danger Jamos Gray jumped in after bim.
Just as he reached (ho \yator tho grout
creature reached tno boy, who was growing vory. faint. At flrst tho bird seemed
undetermined what to do. It pecked at the
boy about the body, heeding not the shouts
oftho sailors who sought to frighten it
away. It was somo time beforo tho boat
could bo lowered, and by tho timo it was lot
into tho water and manned tho boy had gone
down onco ' Bis sudden disappearance surprised tho bird, which was nbout to
turn its attention to Banning, when the
boy came to tho, surface again. I ran
to my cabin and ^turned with a
rillo to shoot the bird- should it grow
ugly.  When! gut on deck tho gret thing
t saw was tho strange creature rising
into tho uir with tho boy, and ita male,
which suddenly appeared, almost na large,
attacking Batfnuig, Ho was on his
back, dodging tho beak of his adversary r.iul
iWitaming toward the vessel with all hl3
might. I waa never moro excited In my
lifo. I liurdly knew what to do. Tho boy
was being carried away and was up thirty
or forty feot in the air. 'Shoot tho bird,1
yelled tho mate, running about tho deck
like a crazy man and shouting at lhe top of
his voico orders that wero not obeyed. In
shooting I, of course, ran tho risk of killing
tho boy instead of tho big bird, if, indeed,
ho waa not killed by tho fall- but there was
not much timo to think of this; tho bird waa
atill rising, aud, after a hasty aim, I 'bed.
It was an excellent shot. A wing fell helpless, ns if I had broken it, and tho bird
tumbled down into tho the wator. Tno
second bird, wbon it saw the boat approach,
left Banning and mado a fierce attack on
ono of tho boatmen, striking Mm with Us
foot n blow that foiled him to the Uottom of
tho bout. Another of tho crow raised an
oar and hit tho bird with all hi.i xiiglit,
whon it flew away,. Banning, Gray und tho
boy were picked up. Tho latter was unconscious, hut aftor a good rubbing he was
brought lo, Banning was bleeding about
tho faco, and moro or less injured ubout the
body. Tho wounded bird fought viciously
whon an attempt wus mado to capture it.
It was finally lassoed and taken on board.
Threo weeks afterward it died. Tho boy
said that boforo bo went down be felt himself losing consciousness and grubbed at
tho enormous bird that was hovering over
aim. Ho caught its feet and held on with
tho grip of n drowning man. Ho partially
regained his sonso in tho air, but thought
ho was higher up than he really was and
did not dure to lot go."
PREACHING TO LUNATICS.
What Can Bo Keen by Attending RcUglous
Uervlces ut a Mad-House.
It commonly surprises visitors to a lunatic
asylum to-rflnd, observes a writer in the
Now York Evening Post, that insane peoplo
aro not for a moment deceived by tho delusions of their fellow patients. Each will
think himself perfectly sane and healthy,
whilo knowing that all tho others are hopelessly mad. Although a lunatic'o uacntul
freedom may be destroyed, it does not follow that his consciousness Is abolished, A
minister who was called upon once to preach
to a congregation of lunatics trcnted thom
to a sermon ho had written for children.
Much to his surprise, ho received an indignant letter from ono of his listeners afterwards, reminding him that whilo thoy
might bo insano, thoy wore not idiots, and
that many of them woro fully his equals in
education and intelligence.
It is it novel experience to attend a
religious sorvico at an insane asylum.
Imagine a congregation of lunatics aud imbeciles, men on ono sido, women on tho
othor, iu all stages of physical decay aud all
degrees of madness. Helpless, old, gray-
haired fellows, with sturing sunken oyes
and hollow checks, mumbling nnd groaning to themselves, m utter unconsciousness of their surroundings. Gaunt-
looking, wild-eyed women, with nothing
human about thom but their vanity. Wellington nnd Napoleon, Elizabeth and Mury
Queen of Scots, Catherine do Mcdlels und
Dtan of Poitiers, in full costume, facing
(.iub other: God nnd tho devil side by side;
restless girls, who mako thoir hondken-htols
into dolls and rabbits nnd talk baby-talk to
them, occasionally beatingthemund to-i'-lng
thom In tho air. Interspersed throughout
this motley crowd uro bright, keen youn-r
faces, with no apparent trace of their ter'
rlblo curse to any but nn expert observer;
refined and cultivated women, who in their
lucid intervals aro as pure and ■jpirUuni-
minded as angels, and yet arc like the dovi!
incarnate when tho mania seizes them; line,
manly-looking gentlemen, dovout, dignified,
and scholarly to-day, to-inorrow liko tho
hord of swine into whom tho ovil spirit on
tors On cither sido of tho chapel sit tlio
keepers, alert and watchful in case of nn
omergency. Facing thom ts tho chaplain, a
stupid, listloas-looking mau, relegated to
this dopressing Hold by bis own lazy In*
ofllcioncy. Until you havo hoard tho Episcopal servico road by such a mun,H is impossible to conceive how utterly mechuniciU
ond dreary it can bo mado. But it matters
littlo to most oftho mumbling flock, raid tho
tedium Is rollovcdat short intorvalu by a
savago masculino growl or tho shrill hysterics of a woman.
M'ALLISTER'S JOKE.
Uow Uo Made the Indians Believe They
Had Found a Gold Minn.
Prof. McAllister, the prestidlgitatour aud
ventriloquist, happened to bo traveling
across Lower Idaho some years ago, on hia
way from ono town to another, says tbo St.
Louis Globe-Democrat. It was in tho days of
early stage-coaching, before railroads were
quito so plentiful as at the present, time.
Tho professor, ono afternoon beforo tho
show commenced, in wandering ubout tho
streets of, I think it wus Lewiston, encountered on the outskirts of the town n
small band of Indians. Two or threo companions woro with him. Whilo chatting togothor, looking about and observing things
generally, McAllister became quito familiar
with n mongrel dog owned by tho redskins,
whom he proceeded to pet nonchalantly.
" Fino dog," said the professor.
"Ugh!" grunted tho buck.
M How much you sell him fori" asked tho
magician.
" Ughl two dollars," replied tho buck,
holding up a pair of dirty fingers to indicate
tho amount
" Him very fino dog," said McAllister,
stroking tho curio back and taking a gold-
picco from tlio tap of bis noso.
"Hit hiP exclaimed tho redsklu, looking
on in astonishment, his eyes ready to start
from his hoad in excitement.
Him vory fino dog, indeed," quietly
continued tbo professor, this timo taking a
wholo handful of coin from tbo dog's
mouth, noso ond oars, which ho transferred
to his pockets.
Straugo noises woro board proceeding
from tho intorlor of tho brute. Ho groaned
and laughed and bowled and barked, at all
of which tho poor, deluded redskin stood la.
tho utmost nwo and astonishment-, and
couldn't for tho lifo of thom understand
what bad t-omo over tho spirit of tho mii-
mul. It wus hurd lo toll which wns tho
most surprised, tho Indian or tho dog.
After filling bis pockets with gold nnd taking another flsjful from tho cur's nose, the
professor loft tho redskins in peace, lie
bad not boon gono ten minutes beforo the
latter pounced upon the poor, doomed animal uud cut him wido open. Liko tho goose
that laid tho golden egg, thero wns nothing
Insldo, and it wub only fair to presume that
tho only reward was a flue feast upon ribs
of roast dog, browned to a turn.
Women as Burgeons.   •
"Women as physicians wo aro becoming
reasonably familiar with.. That ta, wo no
longor consider It out of taste for a ludy to
bo a doctor. But women ns surgeons nro
moro rare. In Switzerland thoy are pn>
riounccd to bo Um most proficient In tho
medical schools nud hospitals. Ono professor says: "Thowomen aro particularly.
dextorouB In handling musclos, Tliolr
small, taper Angara glvo thom nn advantago
ovor tho malos, and tbelr oyes aro quicker
todoteotdotollsnndminutlio." These two
points oro strong ouos. Do not all tho education and training of woman tend to mnko
cay-
l-or
hor abler to observe small details, whoroun
the training of men works to encourage t ho
summing up of items; that in, thpy argue
bettor, whon tho woman noes mora oxncily.
Women are said to mnko remarkably npt
mlcroscoplsts, KMnlo atudouts openly oppose tho presence of women, but treat iuem
with tho utmost deforenco ond respect."

An Important Ilccltloii..  \
To-day, beforo the Hon. Mr. .Justice
McCreight, a test ca;u respecting the
'right'of the corporation, ot New Westminster to tax those lands brought
Within the municipal limits bv the
'oharter, was fully and direful]/ argued,
It was contended for tho appellants
that inasmuch as,tho 'government assessment' hot' provided tlmt the taxes
for inch year Bhall bo.dau and collected
oti the Bsjcument roll hf tho previous
year, therefore the government had in
effort, before the rcooltlmfltion of tho
city act, imposed taxes, although the
t*iei.ip question were not actuslly due
AtA fHyiimefe'the grttern'niont'till tho
*nd day of January Jn each year;
bo that by.^ection 214 qf the city
oharter the corporation would have no
.right to tax such property for the oiir-
.rent'ybni-. '" ' ' ■ . "■■
| HU lordahip, however, held that the
reference in the act to the as-cBsmont
roll of the previous year was simply to
furnish the machinery necessary. to
collect taxes in case of default' of payment, and that having regard to the
.provision in the assessment act of 18H8',
exempting lands within' municipalities
from taxationi which net was enacted
in the consolidated statutes in' 1880,;
aud the proclamation being mndo in
pecemWi88{J, t^^nds.ia .question
were noV-subjtct; to prnvincial tnj»i.
lion for the' current year. In his
opinion .tho, taxes could not be
sail to be accruing due merely because
pf the rev.ision.of tho,roU of,,,the pro-
Vious yest^ib^iioriritig itich naht
iievur'became complete. His lordship
held the rule of construe! ion of Btnt-
utes respecting taxation to be-thnt n
tax cannot be imposed unless the person and property aro brought clesfly
within the letter of tho enactment,
and that the government right td tm
posf l-totincfit taxea oh t|it»l*nd.-i
within the imnicipalliinito. could not
be itifttaineu.   ' - •'-.

are null and void, because the society
of Jesuits was not nn incorporated
body, aa falsey alleged in the declaration, because tho act of the legislature,
50 Vic. chap. 38, under which plaintiffs made pretence to be a corporation
iB ultra vires, because the members of
the society aro civilly dead, because
tho rules of the society prevent any of
its members from holding property or
exercising functions which the not confers upon them, because the said act is
repugnant to Imperial statutes and
lawB having force in this province; because the legislature has only a right
to incoporate companies with provincial objects; because the objects of the
society are not provincial but extend
beyond tho provinco und oven beyond
the Dominion of Canada and lhe British Empire into every quarter of the
t>lobo; because tho object*- and constitution of the' society are iiiconsistiuit
and incompatible with the constitution
of the province; because thu objects of
the society are the teachings of doc*
trines and principles subversive to tho
province, vis.: That tho Church of
Rome is superior to the state, that the
Pope has a right to dispose sovereigns
and absolve subjects of allegiance, and
several other points.

Referring to our remarks the other
day, on Tun Columbian's attaining its
lirst year undor tho new management,
to tho effect that we could not truthfully say that this paper had got
double thu circulation of all the other
papers in tho province put together,
Sue., the Victoria Standard is pleased
to make tiie following very kind observations: "Tht' gentleman who con-
duets the columns nf the Cotitnitiittn
should have an address presented to
him, aooompit)ied with a massive gold
modal, as being the only editor who
did nut claim that his paper was by
long odds the peer of its esteemed con*
temporaries. Tho candor of the Columbian is refreshing, ami drops on the
hardened soul if no unbeliever Kith a
gentle anftness, whilo tears of gladness
woll to tho tiiibeiievcr's eyes with the
glad thought that onu of a kind is free
from that awful vice of prcvaricatiun.
In complimenting tho (WtiHil-i-ni on
ita first birthday under its new con-
trollors, tho Standard extends congratulations, and hopes thut down
through the clanging corridors uf time
the fame of the t'o/miiFiuui will go, nud
when iu the distant future, after daily
papers, as now printed, hnve given
away to the "Phunographa" nfadvauc-
ed inventions, it ia-i o be hoped thnt
tho Columbian Evening Phonogram will
be found at overy ear." Thanks awfully, and especially fur that suggestion, which we hopo will fall upon good
"pay dirt," that some ono should present us with a "massive gold medal."
