Tho name of the Arab leader at
Suakim is sometimes but incorrectly
culled Osinun Digma. It is properly
Osman Digna, or aa the natives
there pronounce it, Dikna. Tho
second name is from the Arab
"dikn," meaning a beard, and was
'given to Osman on account of tbe
heavy beard that adorns  his  chin.

England today pays a total of
$4,080,000 in subsides, and by that
means she gets $365,000,000 of the
$665,000,000 paid for carrying trade
of the world. There is such a thing
in Americans being "penny wise
and pound foolish," und the question
of "subsidies" for the great carrying
trade of tho world and the decision
of American statesmen upon it puts
ub on the "penny" side.—Am. paper.

The New York World says: "The
coast of the United States is utterly
defenseless and invites attack.
Foreign iron-clads can enter any
port of this country between Maine
and Texas, far enough at least to
bombard and destroy.the cities and
bring this nation to its feet. Most
of the new ships are on paper, and
there are no iron-olads. Torpedoes
and dynamite guns cttnnot, unsupported, keep out tho armored ships
of an enemy."
A German paper reports that a
novel use of electrieity has been
mado in India for the prevention of
the intrusion of snakes  into  dwel-
js. Before all the doors and
around the house two wires are
laid; whioh are insolated from each
other and connected with an induction apparatus. Should a snake
attempt to crawl over the wires he
receives a shock of electricity which
either kills or frightens him into
a hasty retreat.

The Baltimore American says:
At the First English Ohurch last
evening Rev. Albert H. Studebakcr
preached on a very odd theme—'•_).
Fat Kicker,'! Tf any one thought
"kick" oiid "kicker" to bo expressive,
if not particularly elegant terms of
modern life, they must have been
not a littlo surprised to discover that
they date back at least 1,450 years
before Ohrist and have Biblical
warrant for their use* Jeshurun,
who "waxed fat and kicked," was a
real character, who, in Israel's palmy
days, grew proud with remarkable
prosperity. So seriously did ib affect
him that, liko an overfed and vicious
horso, he kicked. He is a typical
character in that you can find his
counterpart'ill all ages and ih all
lands.
A boy, says the New York Sun's
London cable, whose pluck deserves
to be told about is Albert Battison,
of her Majesty's ship Impregnable,
who has just received the Stanhope
gold menal, tho highest honor of the
.Royal Humane Society. He earned
it in this way : A 13 year-old girl
attempting to cross a river broke
through tho ice and disappeared
beneath it. A man went part way
to her assistance, but came back
frightened, Battison went out on
the ice, dived under it, and got the
girl, taking his chance of being able
to break the ioe with his head as ho
rose beneath it.. Ho succeeded in
doing so, ahd got the girl ashore.
The water was over fourteen feet
deep, and as cold as it usually is when
a river is frozen,'
An American writer has given a
summary of progress in securing
woman suffrage in the United
States and elsewhere. It has, lie
says, been introduced in somo form
into over 100 States und Torritories
pf North America, Europe, Asia,
and Australia, besides many islands,
AH of the United States Territories
exoept New Mexico accept it in
some degree; and all the mainland
provinces of Canada, as well as
every Australian colony but one.
The idea is more acceptable on the
Pacific coast than on the Atlantic;
but it has mado very aggressive
advanco in all the states in special
or municipal elections. Another
authority sketches what has beon
done for the education of women.
He Bays that the education of women
has passed alt stages of opposition,
and of toleration- it is now the rage,
the passion, of the age. It is, at
least, Understood that the permanency of civilisation depends on well-
educated mothers; because the force
of heredity is maternal. In addition
to the colleges for women and
and annexes to the universities,
colleges of arts and industries are
being established, , Cambridge,
England, has opened a college of
carpentry for the female sex, The
object is quite similar to that of our
schools for manual culture, that is
manual dexterity, rather than a
trade. It is thought that the women
will soon invade the trades, as they
have the professions.

TUB MONTREAL  t'ABSIVL.
Montkeal, Feb. 4.—'Ibe first day
of tho carnival festival was ushered in
by the coldest woathor experienced
hero in three years. At two o'clock
this morning the mercury touched 30"
below zero and at 9.30 it was 22° below.
American visitors, many of whom came
completely unprepared for such a temperature suffered terribly. Noses,
ean and hands in, many caeca wore
badly frost bitten. The morning
trains from the south brought a large
number of visitors and if tho weather
moderates a little a very enjoyable time
is anticipated. Owing to the extreme
cold there were few visitors at tho
opening of the toboggan slides this
morning. *
Gov.-Glon. and Lady Stanley and
suite arrived at noon and were conducted to the Windsor, passing under
the arch manned by snowshoers from
twenty leading clubs.

besides all other lines on which cars
were, run last weok. No serious trouble was experienced. Strong police
escorts accompanied the cars and once
or twice clubs were drawn to disperse
the menacing crowds. But hisses and
a few stones on the track was all that
met the most molested car. Thero is
no sign of a formal settlement yet. In
Brooklyn tho situation is unchanged
except thst cars were sent-to-day on

THE  AUSTRIAN SUCCESSION.
Vienna, Feb. 2.—The archduke,
Charles Louis, the emperor's brother,
has renounced his right of succession
in favor of his son Franci*.. Tho oath
of renunciation is not formally signed
but the draft of the document was hurriedly prepared. The archduke,
Charles Louis, took tho oath of surrender privately before the Emperor
Francis Joseph, who summoned his
nephew Francis and had a phvato interview with him lasting an hour. Tho
news of tho renunciation caused a
great surprise. The Archduke Fran
cis hoa renounced tho Modela fortune
in favor of his brother, Otto, and will
henceforth resido in Vienna with tho
title of archduke. He is a major in
tho Fourth Dragoons and is unmarried. He is good-natured, gentle and
indolent and never made a great figure
in society.
ANOTHER AFRICAN EXCEDITION.   ,
London, Feb. 2.—Captain Trovier,
the French naval officer, is organizing
an expedition to cross Africa for the
purpose of solving some of the unsettled problems connected with Lake
Tanganyika. His investigations will
have special reference to the Lukuga
river, which, so far as known, ia only
an outlet of the lake and which presented itself in such varied aspects to
Cameron, Shnley and Thompson.
Captain Hore, who has spent many
years on Lake Ttuiganyika, says that
the lake has been steadily falling during the whole time, and that Lakuga
still continues to flow out of it. This
is no doubt due to the fact that the
bed of the rivor has become silted up
with mud and vegetation to a very
great depth. The water will continue
to flow out until the hard rock is
reached, when Lukuga will become a
dry channel. Capt. Hore evidently
does not believe in tho oscillating
theory of the lake, but seems to think
that it is really drying up. Captain
Trovier will proceed to Stanley Falls
and Nyangwo and explore as far as he
can the Luataba and its branches. He
will then go to Ujiji and thence across
the continent to the Zanzibar coaat,
though by the time he gets to Ujiji lie
may feel it advisable to turn back, if
indeed the disturbed state of Central
Africa does not stop his expedition oro
it gots beyond the Congo.

ST. ANDREWS OllUltCII.
At the Presbyterian church yesterday morning, Rev, Alex. Fraser, of Oomox, occupied the pulpit and took as
his    text    Hebrews   12c. l&2v.,
"Wherefore seeing that  wo oIbo are
compassed about with bo great a cloud
of  witneseoa let us lay aside every
weight und the ain that doth so easily
beset us, and let us run with patience
tho race that is set beforo us,   looking
unto Jesus, the author and finisher of
our faith,"  &c,    Mr.   Fraser said:
The apostle no doubt referred in this
portion  of scripture to thoso ancient
Grecian (*ames, in which tho running
of foot races was a prominent'feature
The  prizes  [riven  on such occasions
wero of very littlo value, consistina of
wreaths; the crown waa a corruptible
crown.   Competition in the races had
to go through soveral months of training and preparation, and when the
day of tho race arrived no one  would,
think of running in an  overcoat and
heavy boots.    Everything  thnt impeded was cast «Bide, whon the runner
started on  his course.   This custom
was quite familiar  with those whom
Paul addressed.   Wo shall in the first
place inquire what is meant by the
cloud of witnesses.    Who are  tbey.
Who and what is this cloud?  It is
composed of a multitude which no man
can number—men 'and women who
have finished their course,   We see,
too, among these witnesses an innumerable company of angels,   those who
have nover sinned.   We see Jesus
Christ himself, our great  forerunner
and  redeemer,   who is looking down
upon us.   We do not seo this cloud
with our bodily  eyes, but see them
with tbe eyo of faith.   Napoleon, to
inspire bis legions in Egypt, told them
that from  tho  tops of the pyramids
centuries looked  down  upon  them.
Bat the true Christian has a far gtand
er inspiration  than  that.   The truo
Christian is a spectacle to  earth and
heaven and hell;  men,   devils,  and
an__els watch him.   How  comforting
to the poor stumbling and the lonely
Christian is the fact that God watches
over him, that his name is written in
the Lamb's  book of life,   thut his
prayers, sighs, tears, and groans are
heard, and that the day is coming when
he shall be gloriously acknowledged by
God beforo men,  devils; and angels.
The next part of the text we shall consider is tho preparation for  running—
"Laying aside every weight  and  the
sin thnt doth so easily beaut us." There
is a  difference  between.weights and
Bins; weights in  them actives are not
necessarily sinful, but thoy become so
when they absorb all our time and attention to tho  exclusion  of  matters
pertaining to our  eternal interests.
We are told to lay asido every weight
and the sin that dotb-so  easily beset
us.   What sin is that ?   We all  know
what that ie, our darling sin, ur  weak
point.   We all have our besetting sin,
nnd the devil knows that well.   Let us
find out what our weak point  is and
placo a doublo guard  there.   If, how-
evi.r,  there is any Christian hero indulging in known sin, lot him not con-
fuse that with a besetting sin. Besotting
sin is fallen into easily from force of
habit, perhaps, and quickly repented
of,' but indulgence in known sin is
something altogether different    Be
sure that such Bins will find you out,
Repent beforo it is too late.   We aro
told that the race is a race set before
us.   It is uot a new way, but a prepared way.    Multitudes havo travelled that way—the groat cloud of witnesses.   Josus Christ has trod every
step of tho way.   Wo aro told that we
are to run with patience.   It is just
here  that a great many Christians
mako a mistake.   Some run by tits and
starts; thero aro line-weather Christians, who do not run when it is unpleasant or dangerous.   It is not an
easy thing to run with patience then.
"All who live godly in  Christ Jesus
shall  suffer persecutions" says God's
word.   Some  will  say  that the old
days of persecution are over; but you
bring back the daya of real godliness,   '
and you will find the days of  persecution  following close  behind.   Let a
man but live godly in Christ Jesus, and
ho  will  find all  the persecution he
wants in his own homo.   Tho speaker
pointed   out the end  of the race—
"looking unto Jesus"—and exhorted
his hearers to begin the race, to lay
hold  on  eternal lifo, as thoy had the
opportunity, and run with patience tho
race, nnd they would win tho crown.
ST. PAULS CHURCH.
At the Reformed Episcopal church
yesterday morning, Rov. ThoB. Haddon preached from Psalm 57, 7v.,
"My heart is fixed, O God, My heart
is fixed; I will sing and givo praise,"
and said: Integrity in character is a
very desirable quality in public and
privato life; decision, stability of purpose, are essential to success. Many
men havo no mind of their own, arc
easily turnod, changed, led astray,
like waves oii sea shore casting up
miry dirt every timo they roll. This
stability so essential in every department of lifo ia ulso essential in religious experience. In the school of
experience, whore wo meet tho stern
realities, if you allow discontent, disagreement, to influence you, your
failure will bo complete; rather let
your umbition havo a fixed aim, for
mortal life is too brief to be ever
changing: lix your purpose wisely,tlien
pursue it; wavering wo cannot attain
Buccees in any department of life; take
everything to God in prayer. Without stability wo havo uo influence on
othor people; we must show by our
actions that we practice what wo tench.
Napoleon standing on tho brow of tho
hill at St, Helena snid to a soldier,
Can you tell me who Josus Christ
was, for thore is something mysterious
about him, for whilo Alexander,Cfesar,
Charlemagne and myself command the
respect of mon of genius by force, the
respect for Jesus Christ is founded on
love; thoro are thousands who in their
devotion to my cause would die for me,
yet it is necessary for me to bo present
to inspire this devotion: but Jesus
Christ, after a lapse of 1800 yean, by
his mysterious influence, so draws the
hearts of men that thousands at his
word would pass through blood and
firo for him, not counting their lives
lost" Thoro aro thousands CO to-day
who would die in their bold enthusiasm for the Master nnd His oause, as
did   Stephen,  Paul,   Latimer,   and

Under tho heading "A Much Felt
Want," wo publish n communication
in another column from "Forward,"
calling attention to the great inconvenience experience by strangers in
this city owing to thero being no
names on the streets or numbers on
the houses. As "Forward" intimates, tbe cost of naming the streets
and numbering the houses would be
comparatively trifling, while the
benefits would he incalculable. Attention has been called in The Co-
lumdian before to tho necessity of
this ordinary convenience of cities
being included in our other plans
for modern progress and advance
ment as a city, und our correspondent's letter but emphasizes the ne
cessity for this being done. We
think wo are safe in assuring "Forward" that steps will be taken during tlio present municipal year, in
the, to some, apparently trifling, but
really important, matter of naming
the streets and numbering the
houses. Several of the aldermen
lately elected hnve recorded themselves ns in favor of having this
needed reform instituted, and it is
to be hoped that our citizens generally will co-operate by cheerfully
paying the nominal sum that may
bo required of each for house numbers, and thus secure the success of
the undertaking at the minimum of
oxpense tothe city.
with respect-to tH<_\ place" for/ hoM?
ing1 teachers' examinations, Westminster, we 'believe, must be selected. | With regord to the registry
office required at Kamloops, we cannot do better than quote the Sentinels own words on the subject, as
they arc conclusive enough to satisfy
anyone of the justice of its argument: "Under the prevent arrangement residents from every
corner of tho mainland—excepting
Westminster district —are compelled to journey nil tlie way to
Victoria to transact business at the
registry oflice there, and those who
have travelled any in this province
are aware of the heavy expense incurred in such a trip. The loss of
time iu going to Victoria and return is also a serious item for consideration, more especially from
Kamloops and points east of this
place. The time required to make
the round trip is from four to six,
and, in some cases, ton days, which
at some seasons of the year means
to many an irretrievable loss. With
an office established at Kamloops,
persons on the mainland, outside of
Westminster district, could reach
here, transact their business, and
return home in much shorter time,
and at less expense. To any sensible minded person the present regulations must seem absurd, and the
sooner the leglislature takes hold of
the matter and makes the necessary
change the better will it be for the
interest of all concerned." We
heartily support our cotemporary's
contention for a registry oflice at
Kamloops, and trust that the legislature may do what is right in the
matter.
Now that the provincial government have, quite rightly, brought
forward the question of a "juvenile
reformatory" as a subject for con*
siderntiou at the present session of
the local house, any outside experience bearing upon such institutions
mny be of interest, Tho report of
tho Eluiim refoi urn lory, says the
Scientific American, whioh has been
now eight years in operation, will
bo found worthy the attention oftho
scholar, as well as that of the
humanitarian. It shows, so far as
so limited nn experience can be relied on, that tho eon tn in i nation of
a penitentiary tends to encourage
thoso to adopt careers of crime who
are not naturally vicious, and, per
contra, that education and tho absence of vicious surroundings serves,
nt least in the case of first offenders,
to wean them from the course they
have only just set out upon. The
report says that 60 per cent, of the
convicts released from other prisons
find their way back again, while,
thus far, 80 per cent, off those discharged from the Elmira reformatory, during the eight years of its
existence, nro believed to be permanently reformed and engaged in
honest labors. It must be remembered, while considering this statement, that only first offenders are
admitted to the reformatory, while
into the ordinary state's prisons
come the old criminals, from which
little or nothing can be hoped. But
it has been set down as a rule:
"Once a criminal, always a criminal," that thoso who have served
one term in a penitentiary are likely
to return; the prison authorities
infer this where they do not say
this in their reports, and the statistics they give seem to confirm the
statement. At tlie reformatory the
system of discipline is wholly different. The terms of confinement,
however long, mny be remitted by
tho managers after one year's incarceration. " A regular system of
instruction is maintained* the
prisoners devoting themselves to
.studies which will tho better enable
them to bo self-supporting ■ the fact
that good behavior, attention, and
industry will freo them quickly, und
that they have yet a chance to go
on again without the stigma that
always attaches to those serving a
term in the penitentiary, encourages
those with the least spark of in*
telligence; nor does intellectual He-
velopment, as has beiSn alleged, increase the capacity for wrong doing.
At least the authorities nf the reformatory say thoy have not feund
this to be the case.
Sir Lyan Playfpir, in a letter to
Junius Henri Browne, author of a
paper in the New York Forum,
for October under the heading,
'■The Dread of Death," says : "Having represented a large medical constituency (the University of Edinburgh) for seventeen years as a
member of parliament, I naturally
came in contact with the most eminent medical men in England. I
have put tbe question to most of
them, 'Did you, in your extensive
practice, ever know a patient who
was afraid to die f With two exceptions, they answered, 'No.' One
of these exceptions was Sir Benjamin Brodie, who said ho had seen
one case. The other was Sir Robert
Ohristison, who had seen one case—
that of a young woman of bad
character who had a sudden accident. I have known three friends
who were partially devoured by
wild beasts under apparently hopeless circumstances of escape. The
first was Livingstone, the great
African traveler, who was knocked
on his back by a Hon, which began
to munch bis arm. lie assured me
that he felt no fear or pain, and
that his only feeling was one of intense curiosity as to which part of
his body the lion would take next.
The next was Rustem Pasha, now
Turkish ambassador in London. A
bear attacked him and tore off part
of his hand and part of his arm and
shoulder. He also assured me that
ho had neither a sense of pain nor
fear, but that he -felt excessively
angry because the bear grunted
with bo much satisfaction in munching him. The third caso is that of
Sir Edward Bradford, an Indian
officer now occupying a high position in the India oflice. He was
seized in a solitary place by a tiger,
which held him firmly behind his
shoulders with one paw and then
deliberately devoured the whole of
his arm, beginning at the hand and
ending at the shoulder. He was
positive that he had no sensation of
fear, and thinks that he felt a little
pain when tbe fangs went through
his hand, but is certain that he felt
none during the munching of his
arm."

The Kamloops Sentinel is looking
oat for its particular locality with
commendable patriotism.   It wants
toucher-' examinations held at Kamloops in the future,   instead  of at
Victoria, as a moro central   place-
Our cotemporary also argue) very to-
gently for the establishment of a
registry office at the capital  of the
interior.   With respect to its argument, that  teachers' examinations
should be held at some more central
point than Viotoria, we agree with
the Sentinel that they  should be
held somewhere on the  mainland,
bnt wo oan hardly agree with it that
Kamloops is  by any  means  the
centre of population for  the  provlnoe yet—it is hardly likely that it
will be for yeara to  come, even
should it thrive in  tbe  meantime
M wo hope to see it.   We may not
get oredit for disinterestedness when
we suggest that Westminster is the
most central point in the provinco,

interests, and that it ii likely to

■  And chirp, and song, and busy wing, ,
Building her nest. '

But robin, singing as she flew, ■-»-  ....
Had happy thoughts for none of thefce.
She bow not radiant sky of bine, *■	
Nor buddiilg trees.
She wrought for summer's beauty fair,**
' And dreamed a dream of happy rest'
When little ones her love should share
Within ihe nest
When loving mate, the livelong day,**^
Should sing and trill the downy brood
His sweetest notes, and only stray -
To bring them food.

On drooping wing, with plaintive moan

A   Troubled Conscience and   a
Haunting Presence.
lam a manufacturer of and dealer in gravestones and monuments. There are three men
Who habitually associate death with busl-
hess-the dostor, the undertaker and the
tombstone makor. I have tho finer feelings
and sentiments of tho average man, yet my
occupation has led me to regard tbe great
and solemn ohango chiefly from a business
point of view. That men should die has
seemed to me as a matter of course, and as
a necessary means for the support of myself and family. Still, death may produce
a great shock ln mo, as was tbo case with
that of my friend Sparling.
We had been friends from boyhood. He
lived near me; my way to and from business led past his houso. 1 met him almost
dally. Mutual assistance over some of tho
bard places of life, a similarity of tastes,
and frequent interchange of thought and
opinion had endeared each of us to tho
othor.
For a week I had been busy with preparations for a long business tour. It was to
last threo months. Tho day before my do-
parturo I had mot Sparling and had said to
him. "1 am going on another tour, Lest
wo should not moot to-morrow, let us say
to put away all thoughts of Sparling, and
fix my mind on business.        , _.__
It would not do. The man who attempts
to light a battlo with' hir* conscience Is always In tho wrong, nlways sure of defeat.
Moreover, that kind of a contest will exclude overy thing else from his mind till it
Is settled. When tho train reached Cincinnati I was conquered. Letting my baggage
go on I left the car, and in a fever of impatience walked the station until I oould
tako a return train.
From the probabilities of such occasions I
had settled it In my mind that Sparling
would be buried on the afternoon of the
third day from that of his death. Time-tables were studied, conductors interrogated,
and It was made certain that TTTUght in due
course to reach homo at three o'clock In tho
afternoon of that day.
That would bo a very olose thing, I reflected. Then would bo, probably, only time
for me to take a carriage and join tbe procession to tbe cemetery. Much distressed
in mind, I resolved to do this, if circumstances admitted of nothing mora
But even tbls poor privilege was denied
me. Thero woro maddening dolays and
detentions; It was not until midnight ot tho
third day that I loft tho train at the home
station.
■■ My itate of mind admits of no description. I feared to learn the truth; I would
not inquire if tho funeral hod yet token
place. There were no carriages thero at
that hoar and I walked alone through tho
deserted streets.
■ There was a full moon and the gas lamps
were not lighted. But tho time was July,
' and the foliage often vailed tho moonboams.
Tho force of habit led mo through tho
atreet where Sparling had lived. I would
not think of calling at that untimely hour.
I must learn the particulars of tho funeral
at homo, but In my remorseful condition ot
mind it seemod to mo the correct thing to
do to walk slowly past the house of the
mourning, and abase my soul boforo it
As I nearcd tho goto I saw a tall figure
leaning on It Tho form and the attitudo
were so familiar to me as to strike me
through with terror, I halted abruptly.
Tho face was slowly turned toward me,
It looked white In the vague moonlight; pale
and very sorrowful.  It was Sparling's.
I grew cold from headlo foot With what
littlo strength was loft mo I tried to cross
the streot
A timorous glance baok over my shoulder
showed mo tbat it was following mo. Swift*
ly, straight it camo after me.
I oould havo prayed for wings to fly with
m* away from tho terrors of that place.
It-what name oould I give thatthlogl-
overtook me. The polo countenance still
looked reproachful, robukoftil.
"For God's sake,Bsra,"I cried,"don't
come back and haunt me 11 was wrong, but
you know I have tried —"
A smile broke over tho sad face; ao like
tils smile. In tbo suddon revulsion of my
feelings I fainted.

FACTS ABOUT SCOUTS.
Mot as Portrayed in Dime Nov_.li., Uut as
They Are Found In Bealily.
Tho*-scout of tho novel'.and tho show,
writes Con. A. Maliony, in the Philudul-
phiu Prm, is a very picaresque, kind lol-
Jow,-thoroughly reckless, a dead shot, tlio
•proprietor of a varied selection of'sfcalps
and showing in his moral character that
combination of "half angel and half Lucifer " of which Joaquin Miller delights to
sing. Like Samson of old, bis strength is
in his hair, and his long-flowing locks aro
tho admiration ot frontier women and the
onvy of frontier mon. He Ib alwayB clad
In buckskin, fringed and stamped with grotesque di.ai_.ns, while his. flowing locks are
surmounted with a sombrero that it would
take three days to walk round tho brim.
Such is the Eastern conception; now for
Southwestern reality.
Tho United States scout in active sorvico
wcarii tils hair cut short, in soldier fashion,
becauso ho has to sleep on the ground for
wocks at a timo, and if he wore long and
flowing locks they would give him considerable trouble by affording a choice variety
of insects a refuge and a dwelling-placo.
Thon again, outsido of some town in which
they wanted with a pardonable vanity to
chow off, I novor saw one of thom in a buclt-
sl-hi suit It iB too warm in summer und
not warm enough in winter. Tho scout is a
good shot, but that is a virtue ho shares in
common with nearly overy man and boy on
tho frontier,    *
Thoro Ib very little romance, but plenty
of hardship about tho life of a scout. Ho la
not selected for bis dashing airs and reckless bravery, but for the only quality in demand with army officers, his thorough
knowledge of the oountry In which the
troops are to operate, and especially of tho
best camping grounds, the distanco from
water to water (a point on which tho lives
of ttio command often dfipeiidy and hia
power to shorten marches by hia acquaint-
niuw with short cuts through mountains
and over morasses. If he knows tho Hpan-
ishlanguago so much the better und If lio
can speak a little Apache better still, Lut
thoso latter accomplishments aro of minor
Importance to a thorough knowledge of tho
country.
United States army scouts may be divided into two classes—'whito men, who
rank ob chief of Bcouts, and Indian scouts,
who aro organized as military companies, The white scouts aro usually
men who have been employes of tbe
San Carlos and Mesoaloro Apache Reservation or Indian agencies. They arc, from
constant association with the Indians, wcil
acquainted with tbelr character and habits
and frequently speak a little Apache. Tho
Apaches, with fow exceptions, speak Spanish, and it is usually the language they uso
in communicating with the Indian agent
and the employes of the agency. A white
man who makes himself useful to tho In*
dians by doing (hem little favors is, in time,
taught "to read sign."
A scout who can read "sign" can tell you by
examining a trail over which horses havo
passed if they were ridden or led, and if
both, tho number ridden and tho number
led. Evon whon shod ho can tell whether
the horses wore American or Mexican. If
tbo trull bo made by men on foot ho cun tell
If it bo an Indian trail or simply tho trull of
Mexicans wearing moccasins. In a hostile
party ho oan toll by tho trail how many aro
bucks und how many aro squuwtt and ehildron, and so on over a field of observation
ns extensive as interesting.
The scout thus qualified finds no difficulty
in obtaining employment in tho Southwest,
whoro Apache outbreaks aro ot almost
yearly occurrence. Ho is engaged, subject
to tho approval of tho commander of tho dis-
tr'ct or department—Now Mexico is a military district, Whilo Aviuona ia a military do.

Winchester, 45 caliber repeating riflo. From
his pay ha has to provide for his rations,
and bo mosses with the officers whon In
post, or whon outsido with tho command.
The Indinu scout cempauics aro enlisted
from tbo t|goodl1Indian8 on tho reservations.
About thirty men form ^company which Is
placed under tbe command of,a Lieutenant
of the regular army with whom is associated
a chief t f scouts who acts as the medium of
communication between tho officer and his
command. About six soldiers, as a measure
of precaution against mutiny, are attached
to eaoh oompany of scouts. The period of
service of an Indian soout is only six months,
"unless sooner discharged," and he is paid
thirty dollars a month. His riflo generally
provides bis ration, as the Apacho detests
army bacon, preferring even the abandoned
carcass of an army mule.
The Indian scout companies are not popular on the frontier. They are coiiHidorcd to
be only training schools for tbohostil03, and
as some of the most despordto of the
Apaches have been scouts, such as Bonlta
aud Chatto, tho antipathy ot tho frontiersmen is not altogether without reason. The
fact that tho Indian scouts of tbo Government aro without uniform adds to tho an*
noyanco of tho peoplo of the frontier who,
except they see the Indians accompanied by
a white man, can not tell them from host ilea.
The only thing distinctively worn by tho
Indian scout outside tho Government belt
that carries hfs ammunition to distinguish
htm, ts a rod handkerchief bound around his
head. Tho frontiersmen argue -that red
handkerchiefs aro so common that no Indian, hostile or otherwise, need be without
ono. It is well-known that the lock of uniform of the Indian scout is a source of perpetual danger on the border to Americana
and Mexicans alike, and has coat tbe sacrifice of many Uvob. ■____■'
HOW WOMEN  WED.
No Bonunw Whatever Nowadays In find-
Ing a Husband.
A man asked me the othor dar how women And husbands, writes •■ Bab" in the Now
Tork Star. It was sueh a puzzling question
tome that I constituted myself a committee of one and went around among alotot
married women to seo how their husbands
proposed to tbem.
Thoro wasn't one who had ever bad an
absolute romantic avowal of lovo I There
wasn't ono whose husband had gotten down
on his knees, caught tho loved one's hand
and besought of ber, unless sho wished to
see him stork and cold with a broken heart,
that she would wed bim I Thero wasn't ono
who had ever known the rapture of being
hold, with a pistol pointed at her hood,
while the bravo lover pronounced that, unless she accepted bim, ho would kill her
and then himself I Thoro wasn't one who
had beon gained evon at the daggers point,

Dorothy, I confess to a certain amount of
disappointment The nearest I oould get
aa to how the question of marriage had
boon reached was always that they drifted
Into tt.
This ts dcllciously vague, but it seems to
mean that thoy knew the man, that he had
tbe prtvtlego ot holding their hands and
criticising their frocks for sometime, and
that thon, when thero was no special excitement tn Wall street, a Presidential election wasn't gobigon, nor any thing else tlmt
was distracting, they suggested that It was
about time for them to got married.
This is tho genoral experience. And* I
think ita sin and a shame. Few women'
havo more than one opportunity to marry,
and that ought to bo accompanied by all tho
frills, and frivolities tbat tho best novel
writer ever dreamed of. Tho Howells and
Joines business in tho way of classiu lovo

Mr. Justice McCreight this morning
undor tho Speedy Trials Act. The
particulars ot the crime ure : Ah Fa
wont to tho houso of Green and attempted to criminally assault a woman,
but wus put out of tho houso and
ordered not to return. Tho Chinaman
returned shortly afterwards and when
Green attempted to eject Ah Fa tho
latter drew a knife and out him directly across tho tho throat, indicting a
deep and serious wound. After hearing the evidence Hia Lordship sentenced the prisoner to 7 yean in

Chinaman and carries the stamp of a
murderer un his face.
Housebreakers at Work.
At an early hour yesterday morning
the residence of Mr. Sheriff Armstrong
was broken into by burglars, who,
however, failed to secure any valuable
booty. The robbers cut a pane of
glasB from the wash kitchen window,
pulled back tho spring, threw open the
window and entered, The lock on
the next door leading into tho main
portion of the house proved too much
for the burglars, and they got no further. A pair of shoes and a clothes-
wringer was all the booty obtained,
which muat have proved a great disappointment to the enterprising burglars.
The family heard no sound of tho intruders, who performed their work so
expertly and noiselessly that it is suspected they are old hands at the work.
No trace whereby they might be identified was left behind. Householders
should take special precautions against
burglars, for it iB probable this is the
first of a series of petty robberies which
will oxtend over several weeks.

Vancouver Defeated.
Much to the Burprise of Westminstor, the Vancouver Junior foot-ball
team arrived in this city about 4 o'clock
on Saturday, though they had been
previously advised tho match oould not
take place. However, when the team
did come a few of the players got together and decided to play the visitors
so that their trip might not be in vain.
A team of 13, composed of Pittendrigh, Port, G, Hall, Mowat, Mc-Mar-
tin, Woods, P. Peele, B. Peele, Bell,
Hamber. Lister, Turner and Aikman,
was gathered together and the match
commenced. The agreement was that
the play should last for 40 minutes—
20 minutes each way ns it was nearly
5 o'olook when the game started.
From the beginning Westminster had
the game all its own way, and the ball
was almost continually in Vancouver's
25. The play was far from being
rough nnd none of the players carried
away unpleasant reminders of the
event. By a pretty run Bell carried
the ball into Vancouver's touch and
secured a try. Woods kicked but
failed to ecore. Apart from tho minor
points this was all the advantage gained and Westminster won the day. At
tho conclusion of tho match the teams
heartily cheered oach other and then
adjourned to tho Colonial Hotel whero
the visitors were hospitwbly entertained by the home club. Tho Vancouver
Juniors aro to bo commended for their
pluck and it is to bo hoped they will
soon visit us again.

Sir Georgn Baden-Powell, M. P.,
for Liverpool, arrived at Ottawa Saturday. He has come to'Canada to examine into tho proposed mail service
in connection with the C. P. R. and
the new line of steamers from Vancouver to China and Japan, and Australia, The proposition is to run a
fast line of newly built steamors on
the latest approved plans by the admiralty, and available in time of war,
from Liverpool to Canada, to connect
w_iht.heCP.il,, tho same to be
subsidized by the Canadian und British governments. As to tho Pacific
Ocean steamers, the British government has already consented to givo
£45,000 Bubsidy for a line of steamers
to run monthly providing the Oanadian government will give £15,000, but
the idea now is to increaeo this amount
to £60,000, perhaps £100,000, and
that the Dominion government ahould
make an equal increase in their subsidy according to its proportion, and
that the service should be fortnightly.
This route, Sir George maintains,
would be of great importance to England if it engaged in war with any of

Jesus, We want men like David and

steadfast, stable, unmoveable, always

resting your hopes and aspirations on
the Rook of Ages, The unity in worship Is very noticeable at St; Paul's.
The solemn simplicity of their Sacramental service, and tho special invitation to Christians of other denominations to partake of tho Lord's supper
denote a living unity in the ohuroh,
nnd the intention of the minister and
members to carry out the expressed
commands of Christ, with the absence
of pomp and ostentation which characterized Him and His work while on

A deputation to the commons representing the wholesale dry goods and
wholesale clothere of Canada, has protested against the inorease of duty on
imported cloths nnd woolen goods naked for by the Canadian woolen manufacturers a few days ago. Their re*
presentations will be taken' into non-
others, their hearts fixed with pur-
poseness to sustain the cross. What
is that which causes such devotion
to Christ 1 His love, His great
work, His death on the cross. This
devotion is intensified in travellers
who visit the Holy Land—those sacred
spots where tho Saviour trod, particularly at Mount Olivet, at the brook
He-Iron, and in the garden of Gethse*
mane, where, as they beheld the
"trees of agony" enclosed within tho
iron railing, under whoso shade Jesus
groaned in agony, thoy themselves
shed tears of bitterness and felt tho
evidence that Jesus in that very
vicinity groaned in spirit for a lost
race, and thoy would exclaim "I love
thee better than I did." All nature
had fixed laws; man was mndo master
in the creation with a certain power of
will accorded Mm, and if he exercises
this power of will under the laws of
God, all is well and pleasant, and great
is his influence for good; whereas under other influences, we act in tho
greatest of danger. Can we not. say
to-day in this service (Sacramental),
"My affection is centred there." It is
a service consecrated to Almighty God,
and we can have our hearts filled with
love, filled with bread from heaven,
our trust firm as Mount Sion, our faith
firm on the '.Rock of Ages." It is
thon that praise gushes out, "I will
sing unto the Lord a new song," and
with Paul we say, "Who shall separate
us from tbe love of Christ." There are
two points in life, one pointing to
everlasting happiness and joy, and the
other to endless death. Thero are too
many people with no fixed purpose,
hardly knowing what to believe, and
where there is a change or novelty In
a church, that church is graced by their
presence until the novelty wears off or
the excitement dies; like a wandering
Jew they just pitch their tent for a
day, they get no solid good, and Aro
no real help to any body or any church.
In the services loo much importance
is attached to the speech of the religious teacher; instead of entertaining
a praying spirit, it is a man worship,
not a worship of God, and when that
spirit prevails it is impossible to advance; but, as Paul said to some of the
Ephesiaus, "Be not tossed lo and fro
and carried about with every wind of
doctrine;" stand like men, not easily
moved, be pillars of truth and right-
eouaness, stick to the principles of tho
reformation, stick to tho bible for

be upon their own heads.   Speaking- trict,B.o. jjj      .
from the taxi, Mr. White aaid: At on. I -.-!--l^S...-"*J-MJ-.?,V,___.»"!-'J<'!.»S'»t
time tbe city of Jerusalem was almoBH
as vile as the cities the plain—Sodon
und Gomorrah, At this time numbers
of the children of Israel were in captivity, but the remainder dwelt in fancied security. Now, I might show
you how God's judgements overtook that peoplo, but my
purpose to • night lies nearer
homo than that. During my ministry
I have fired a good many random shots
at the devil, but they haven't all taken
effect. I think, however, that my
shot of last Sunday night lias taken
effect, I think that somebody got
hurt; that was my intention. I have
had a good deal of criticism, but, I am
glad to say, I have had some enoourag-
ment from people in this city. I notice that there are some correspondents in certain of the newspapers not
suited with me. One correspondent,
a liquor seller, has written over his
own name. This ia a most remarkable
thing, for a liquor Belter to be honest
enough to attempt to defend the traffic in print over his own name, 1 have
cut that article out and put it in my
scrap-book, and 1 cannot help respecting the man that wrote the letter for
his honesty. I suppose there are men
in the liquor business who honestly
think that it is very hard that I should
attack their business. I am sorry for
that.   My relation to these men  is
that 1 am willing to be a friend to
them, to take thom by tho hand; but
I nm bound, aB a messenger of the
moat high God, to denounce that business, which is a menance to the peace
of our oity and should be put down.
Now, remember that I distinguish between hotels and saloons.   What I
nm after is this business  of Belling
strong drink.    I believo,  and you
know, that the liquor business ia at
the bottom ofnine-tenthBof the trouble
in this city.   The police court cases
aro all whiskey cases.   There are vory
few people that would find their way
into our jail if it were not for strong
drink.   Some people Bay:   "What do
you interfere for?   Your business is to
preach the gospel."   But   what   is
the   use   in preaching the   gospel
when   these   things    ere    dragging
men  down  to   death.   The   saloon
business is the greatest   hindrance
there is to the gospel.   I have spent
days and nights with men, to get them
to give up their __ins and the saloons
and other hells would  undo  nil  my
work.   It is like fishing men out of a
river and having some one  pushing
them in faster than you can take them
out.   Under such circumstances, is it
any wonder that the rescuer should
turn his attention   occasionally   to
those who are doing the mischief.
Beside that, as I minister I get lots of
letters from the east imploring me to
do something to save   loved sons or
brothers from destruction  by aulm.iis
nnd other evils.   I have other reasons
too, why I am bound to strike a blow
at these things as long as I live.* There
are at least two-thirds more saloons in
this city than there is any excuse for.
Gambling und even robbery is carried
on in some of them.   A  man will
come in from the country with $30 or
$40, lie gets drunk, the saloon keeper
takes care of his money, and gets him
fuddled so that he forgets all about it.
In some of these places boys are being
encouraged to drink and gamble-
some of these boys belong  lo  good
families in this city. I got my information from the police authorities.
These things can bo  proved.   I  can
mention threo men,  Basket,  Durant
and Jones, who  have  died  throur.li
drink, in this oity and vicinity recently.   There is somebody to blame for
all this, and the guilt of murder is on
their souls.   If I had sold whiskey to
thoso men, Durant   and Jones,  1
would  hate  to  walk  around whore
they   are    buried.      Those    who
engage in the liquor business and in
disreputable businesses are to blame;
those who rent houses,  those who
make  money in  any way out of tho
vices of the community, are to blame.
There are a good many men selling
whisky that don't realize how bad it is;
the occupation degrades them bo rapid*
ty that they soon get hardened to it.
Awful retribution sometimes overtakes men who engage in the business.
A saloon-keeper in this town said to a
young man, who informed him that lie
was thinking of going into the business, "Jimmy,  if you go to selling
whisky,  I will never speak to you
again.   I wish toGod I wasjout of it,"
We are forced to condense the remainder of tho sermon.   Mr,  White
stated that there wero people who
attended ohurch regularly, and ohurch
members, who were making money
out of the whisky business,  and they
were responsible, too; the church members who sat on licensing boards aud
granted licenses were responsible.  He
would not say much about the old city
council; bnt tho new council, under'
the new charter, had greater powers,
and if they did not do something before the end of the year to regulate
and control the liquor business and
wipe out the disreputable blots of the
oity, they would be responsible. Ho
believod the counoil was a good one,
but hoped that they would not be so
taken up with railways, water,sewerago,
(fee., as to forget the moral interests of
tho city. Tho statement that thesaloon
keeper was the poor man's friend was
absurd; if it were not for whiskey
there would not be so many poor men.
Jesus was the poor man's nest and the
sinner's only, friend, and the speaker
closed by inviting ull to come to Christ,
no matter how hopeless they might
