Grip has a joke on Scotch caution
.—"Yo'll he down tae see us on tho
Sawbethl" "I wnll, if I'm (-pared."
"Oh, aye; gin ye'ro deed, we'll no
expect ye ! That is not bad ; but
the other day, the mayor of Grip's
own city, writing from London, Baid:
"We will (D. V.) come home by the
latter steamer, if nothing unforeseen
occurs." The italics are ours of
course. Grip should try his beak
on that.
There is a mean man in this village, snys the Attica Mews. Ho
soils milk shakes. The other day
his clerk had the chills so very bod
that his teeth chattered like a pair
of castanets.' A man came in and
called for a milk shake, and this
mean man made the clork hold tho
glnsss in his hand till the mixture
was beautifully shaken. He said he
saved tho wear and tear of his pat-
cut shaker.
Another marriage between English
nobility and American beauty is announced. This timo it is Lord Kd-
ward Fitzmaurico, the younger brother of our lato governor-goneral,
Lansdowne, to Miss Caroline Fitzgerald, of New York. Miss Fitzgerald ts said to bo a classical scholar
imd a fino linguist, and last, but not
least, possesses that wliich constitutes one of the greatest attractions
of tho American girl—a large fortune and under her own control.

It is said a wonderful invention
has been exhibited for preventing
collisions at sen, Tho motive is
electricity. A small plate, not larger
than a cheeso plate, is fixed at this
sido of tho vessel, and tho approach
of any vessel within two miles immediately causes a bell to Bound,
and an indicating arrow shows the
direction from whioh it approaches.
The idea, of course, ia that wavos ut

water than air, and, if tho invontion
can be perfected, the torpedo boat is
Hkoly to bo rendered useless, In
the experimental tests that have
been made ou tho Thames the indicator has worked perfectly.
Tho Johnstown sufferers have
been accused of sitting down in despair and holding out thoir hands to
he tilled, instead of pluckily going to
work to recoup thoir shattered fortunes, but thero are many exceptions
to this general chargo, most notable
among which is the case of Mrs.
Mary Johnson. Sho lost both husband and home and was left penniless with four children. Putting
the .smallest iu a cart, Mrs. Johnson, with her oldest child, a girl of
eight years, set out on foot to push
the cart to Lansing, Mich,, her old
home. At Cleveland, Ohio, she was
recognized by an old fraud, who at
once provided this heroine in real
life with lirst-olass tickets through to
Lansing. There are fow Mary Johnsons.—Ex.
Says an exchange: A pretty story,
almost too pretty to be true, is told
of Princess Louise, who last week
wedded tlie Karl of Fife. It seems
that this shy royal maiden has boen
in love witli the earl for years* in
fnct, even before she came out, but
she never told her love, nor did the
earl tell his until a kind court busybody, guessing tho secret, went to
papa with it. And during these
live years tho princess always bought
a birthday present for tho man she
loved, but as she never dared give it
to him, the little gift was hud away
in a drawer and carefully locked up,
There is Eomthing exceedingly touching in this fit of girlish sentiment,
nud, with ib in mind, uo wonder the
Princo of Wales spoke of his daughter's engagement asonoof purcnllcc-
tion,
Whatever tho cause may be, the
0. P. R. is giving Toronto lotK of
tally just now. It "takes a special
pride" in making its buildings in
that city "a credit and an ornament,"
Ac, Ac. It quite falls in with the
city's views about providing a safe
menus of crossing its tracks, and is
quite willing to consent to any feasible plan ; and generally, it docs not
profess to be influenced by other
i linn business reasons in coining into Toronto, it seeks to show that its
coming, aside from the usual benefits
of railway connection, will prove an
unmixed good to tho oity, on account of the large improvements it
proposes to mnko along the lake
shore. All of whioh seems to indicate that vigorous kicking (for Toronto did kick vigorously) is Btill nn
element of success in this wicked
world.

THE CHURCHES.
Summaries of Some of tlie Ulty Sermons
Spoken Siiudn}.
st, Paul's churoh,
At St. Paul's (Reformed Episcopal)
'churoh, Inst evening, tho pastor, Rev.
Thos, Haddon, discoursed from Psalm
22, 26 v. —"Your heart shall live forever, " Ho spoko as follows: The
Biblo speaks of the heart aa tlio centre of the affections ami passions. The
inspired writers often speak of tho
heart as sinful, viewing it as they do
in its natural, sinful form. Liko all
God's oreaton, it was good to oom*
mence with, yet, through man's wilful
disregard for tho Creator, it became depraved; hence (iii Genesis
chap. 5—flv.) God, seeim* "the heart of
man was only evil continually," repents that He had created man.
Multitudes to-day make Him mourn
because of their darkuuBS through tho
God of this world; while, on the other
hnnd, those who have sought aud' experienced a chaiiiio have hearts a copy
of God's, and, like David, praise Him
for tho chango, God opens up,
searches and tries our hearts, and the
importance nf the heart being right is
seen by the connnand of Jesus "Love
thy Lord thy God with nil thy heart
nud nil thy mind." Thus in the bible our heart :'i joined aud applied
with our life in a spiritual mm, na it
lives forever; tho world pusses away,
ami the lust thereof, hut the heart and
soul will livo forever; the material
works of God will pass away, but ono
of his works, ihemn'u, the inner man,
■hall live forever; no gliding away from
thoughtful, conscious life is admitted
iu tho teachings of this book. Im*
mortality is hught in this verso, that
there ia n land in whtch there will be
eterunl existence ennnot bo douhtud, n
laud to which wu are drawing nearer
dny by day. Job couldn't help talking about it when iu trouble, and yearn
for its realisation, and our Lord teaches tho doctrine in tho parable of tho
rich man nnd Lazarus, At the trans*
figuration Moses and Eliri wero seen,
their bodies hnd been burled, but their
souls lived, and Stephen just before
his death speaks of seeing into the
other world and beholding Jesus standing at tho right hand of God, while
Paul had n glimpse into the future
stale, hut wns not permitted to reveal
what ho saw. The book of Revelations is a mysterious nccount of what
was Been by John, and he fails in conception of tho vast host nnd is compelled to express hiuiBelf as seeing an
innumerablo company who had washed
thoir robes and mado thom whito in
the blood of the Lamb, Tho groat
doctrine of the future stato is taught
all through tho Bible, mid this is why
wo are admonished to prepare, this is
why the snciilico on Calvary took
placo, this is why tho invitation is repeated again nnd again in tho gospel,
to como to tho fountain and be clena
ened; bring your henrts with their sin
to Jesus, nnd Ho will bear your sorrows nnd cleanse you from all sin and
unclennnoBB, We have to think of tho
dead ones gone boforo, ns living—
"the heart lives for ever." What a
world of thought in that one word,
eternity, wo cannot fathom its depth,
—cannot with our finite minds grasp a
conception  far reaching   enough  to
understand that which had no  beginning and has no end, but goes  on, on,
no termination; and sometimes  whon
I try to think out its meaning, I have
to stop, and, while realizing thnt it is
for ever and ever,  the sad thought
comes thnt mou believe and  live  and
act as though there were no hereafter,
and that when thoy die they pass  into
oblivion; how sad their mistake is.
Death is not an annihilation; this book
not only teachoa immortality, but our
very conscious being tells us we are accountable beings;   hence nations, almost without exception, believe in  an
after life, although their views of the
stato beyond  this life  are  diverse.
Death is only the beginning of  a  life
that will never end; there are millions
iu the grave, yet thoy live, thoir spirits
have gouo up and live, although they
laid their bodiei down  to sleep  tho
sleep of death; they have only  passed
from thia sphere of action on  to the
future aud have taken their thought,
feeling and faculties with them to
glorify Him by whose aid they are
permitted  to enter; they went not
shorn or unattended, but oirolod with
friendship, and all their full faculties.
When aome of you left the old country, you became dead to your friends,
and they mourned ot your depaituro
as though you would nover return,
aud you were dead as far sb your presence was concerned, yet there lives iu
you loves aa strong of those  left  behind, andii it not so with those  who
sailed on into eternity; they are  dead
to ua as far as their bodies are concerned, yet they live and watch over
and talk about ub, and some go aa far
as to say they are our protecting nn*
gels.   Just here, remember that as we
live so wo die; we carry our lovo  or
hate for men or things beyond the
grave, therefore, we should  feel  like
David and pray like him, "Create in
me a new heart, 0 God, and renew a
right spirit within me*"   You can see
what you will he like on the other side
of death's river, by searching yourself;
for the life thore will be,a reproduction
of the lifo you live hero,' and as the
honrt is projected forward into the unknown future, and mystery lies nround
that future, it ihould put hope nnd
ambition into the life of men  here,
and they should form and cultivate a
character suited to the  oternal  existence with God.   Brethren,  how nre
wo looking to thii heart cleansing I
With coneern and attention let us appeal to Christ to cleanse our hearts
from sin.   God only can  make tho
heart right, and how impoihnt it is to
see to the change.

ANORY  IRISHMEN.
London, Aug. 12.—-There is a vast
deal of gossip over the Eceno between
Balfour und Harrington in the house of
commons Inst week. Tho Irish member, thoroughly aroused by Balfour's
taunts and insulting manner, threatened to drug him below the bar of tho

Harrington attempted to cany out hia

ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH.
Rev. Mr. Scouler took as his text
last evening Isaiah43c. 25v.—"I, even
I, nm He that blotteth out thy transgressions; for mine own sake I will
not remember thy Bins"—and spoke aa
follows; In the preceding verses of
this chapter God reminds His peoplo
of what He had done for them. He
says, "I gave Egypt for thy ransom,
Ethiopia and Sheba for theo." He reminds them that they wero His purchased people, and ol many of thoso
blessings which He had bestowed upon
them, that ho had distinguished them
above all the other nations of tho
earth, but that they had ill requited
all the goodness whioh he had bestowed
upon them, tliat they had forgotten
God and lightly esteemed the rock of
their salvation. There are in the pre*
ceding verses several charges which
God bringi againit them. Foremost
of theso He charges them with neglecting prayer. He had revealed Himself
unto them as the prayer hearing and
the prayer answering Jehovah, He had
requested them to call upon Him and
He would aniwer them, but instead of
presenting their prayers unto God they
wore found offering them unto dumb
idols, unto gods that oould not save.
Thus they indicated that thoy were
backsliding, that they were wandering
away from their God. One of the first
indications of a backsliding heart is
when prayer ii neglected. When men
thus neglect to call upon the namo of
the Lord there is a sure indication that
they aro forgetting and forsaking God.
My young friendi, 1 trust that you
will not neglect this duty. Neglect
not, I pray you, this sacred privilege.
Continue you, I beseech you, to engage in the exercise of prayer. Another
charge whieh God brought against His
ancient people was that they had not
presented to Him the sacrifices whieh
Ho required, thoae sacrifices which
were duo for their aim. They had
learned to offer sacrifice to other gods,
to dumb idols which could not savo,
they had fallen into the ways of the
people by whom they were surrounded.
They had also trampled upon His
moral precepti. They had made Him
to serve with their sins; that ii, they
had taxed His patience to the utmost
In bearing with their sins. We might
have thought that it would have called
forth tho righteous judgment of Jehovah; but, no; He waiM to be gracious,
waiting still. Thero are certain
things which belong to God. Secret
things belong to God. Man ahould not
seek to be wiae above what is written.
God is not fully revealed. Thore nve
things referred to iu tho bible that aro
not made fully known, things which
probably we would all liko to under.
Btand, but wo must be content with
what wo do know, God has revealed
Himself so fnr that we may know the
way of salvation. There aro thoao w ho
are disposed to reject the gospel because they cannot understand evoty-
thing in the bible. But the finite
mind cannot grasp the infinite in
things which aro hid. Then that honor aud glory which is His belongs to
God alone. His peoplo often rob Him
of these, aud give this honor and glory
to idols. Let ub seek to give Him that
honor and glory which ii His. In
man's salvation God hat been pleased
to make uso of msn as an instrument,
but the work and tho honor and gloiy
aro His. Then, forgiveness belongs
to God alone. There are thoso who
arrogate to themselves this power. But
all that oue poor sinful roan can do
for another -i to direct him to lhe
sourco from whence forgiveness comes,
to direct him to God, who ii able ana
willing to forgive. If wo repent and
make our confessions unto God, we
believe, yen, we are assured, that He
will forgive; and He will not
only forgive, but forget. Ho will
cast our sins behind His back; He
will "put away our iniquities as a
cloud and our transgressions as n thick
cloud." Return, then, to the Father
and obtain this forgiveness, and enjoy
Hia favor and tho Tight of Hii countenance, tliat whon you are called into
Hia presence it may bo to bask eternally in the sunshine of His lovo.

THE CRETAN TROUBLES.
London, Aug. 10.—Tho troubles in
Crete are causing considerable uneasiness at both the British and Berlin foreign offices, on ing to tho opportunity they give Russia for playing
the part of the Christian protector in
joining with Grceco to forco Turkoy'to
ameliorate tho condition of Cretan
Christians, who havo for years -suffered pationtly at Ihe handi* of the
Turkish administration. Tho men appointed to administer tho government
of tho country have roaorted to evory
species of brutality to collect the tuxes
and in addition theii own exaction, by
which thoy rocoup themselves for the
sum they have to pay tho palaco ring
at Constantinople, through whom
they have obtained office and hope to
retain it. It is admitted that the general disorder and mismanagement
which havo prevailed for aomo timo,
has caused many hitherto peaceful
citizens to follow the lead of tho wilder
reveluntionary spirits and that the
consequences may yet bo disastrous to
the peace of Europe.

JaxlB $ritish Columbian
SlumUj Kvenlng, August 1'.', 1889.
By tho report elsewhere of the
public meeting hold on Saturday
night to take steps to arrange a programme of sports* and games in connection with tho provincial exhibition, it will be seen that the various
committees havo been appointed,
and that the selections made havo
beon good, insiuing so far a successful celebration. It is to bu hoped
that the committees, and especially
tho collection committeo, will have
tho prompt and hearty support of
tho public, and thut every om; will
work together cordially and energetically from this out, so sis to havo
nn exhibition, and a programme of
sports in connection with it, that
will reilect credit, instead of disgrace, upon tho royal city. While
on the subject, wo would urge upon
the subscribers to the "Exhibition
Fund" in this paper the necessity of
paying in their several subscriptions,
if it is desired thnt they should be
of any avail for tlie exhibition this
year. If those subscribers who
have not yet paid in their amounts
would hand them over to the collection committee for tho celebration,
tho objoct of the fund would be
realized as fully as hy any other disposal of tho money. If this is dono,
and Tin* Columbian notified, we
shall acknowledge tho payment tho
samo us if made to the bank, tf
this suggestion does not meet with
the approval of the -'fund" subscrib*
ers, we would make a further suggestion that the said subscribers
meet in committeo nnd dispose of
tho funds in some suitable wny in
furtherance of the exhibition.
What Garth Grafton did for the
"sad, sad city by tho straits," some
very stupid or spiteful ink-spiller (a
correspondent of tho Alliston, Ont.,
Herald, who appcui-3 to hnve recently made a tour of tho coast) docs for
Vancouver. Four columns of "stun","
it is said, appears in the paper mentioned from tho correspondent in
question, of which tho following
about tho -terminal city" is a sample*.
Vancouver is a city of ubout 3,000 of a
population, and is supported chiefly by
immigration, Onn steamer nlics daily
Between Victoria nnd Vnncouvor, and
ono every two weeks between Vancouver
nud Japan. During our stay wo saw one
barque waiting to load with lumber, but
wero unable to discover that anything
oxcept the nbove constitutes tho shipping
trade of the Pacific. Thero are quite a
fow buildings being erected, chiefly
stores, mostly nil beiug owned by Sir
Donald Smith nnd Van Horne, of the C.
P. B. Compnny. The town is full of
tradesmen nnd Chinamen. Thero are
eighty plasterers nnd other tradesmen in
proportion."
The above is certainly a notorious
example of the untrustworthy lucubrations of the peripatetic scribe,
who appears to writo very much at
random und without taking ordinary
pains to insure against ridiculously
erroueoua statements. British Columbia and ita various cities havo
Buffered considerably at the hands
of thoso gentry—wo blush to remark
that some of them havo been ladies
—but this reckless misrepresentation Iin3 hardly tho samo power to injury now that it hnti a few years back,
since we have become connected
more intimately with the outside
world, and an iutolligent interest
and knowledge concerning tho province, its cities and resources, is taking the placo of tho old time apathy
and ignorance. So many people
visit the coast theso times, and see
for themselves, that any glaringly
absurd misstatements nro not likely
to hnvo tho inlluencp they havo had
formerly. And more authentic published information is being disseminated about the province those times,
although there is undoubtedly room
for much greater exertions in this
respect. But just fancy, that any
gallful, mole-eyed "easterner" should
have the hardihood to put Vancouver's ppulation down to 3,0001 It's
enough to > mako the corduroy on
Granvillo street get up on end and
executo an Indian war dance. The
lowest estimate would give tho "terminal city" fully threo times the
figure of the Herald correspondent.
And all the other statements aro on
\ a par with thia one.
Betweon tho high and dry old
tory who is inclined to maintain tho
old doctrine of the divine right of
kings, and the red radical who would
abolish all kings and potentates nt
one fell swoop, thero are, of courso,
many shades of opinion, Ono of
tho London weeklies recently set
?orth tho view of, we presume, the
milder radicals, on the question of
tho royal grants, iu a very moderate,
practical way. "We do not now,"
It says, "consider monarchy as divinely prescribed. Wo maintain it
because wo think that on tho whole
it has advantages over an elective
chief magistracy. But practically
the monarch has become simply the
hereditary president of tho commonwealth * * * the monarch has
como to be regarded as an ollloial
paid for tho discharge of certain
great duties * * * the heir-
apparent * * * a vice president."   And  it proceeds to argue
thnt, whilo these "officials" uro worthy of thoir hire, thero is no reasonable or constitutional ground for the
payment of public money to other
members of roe royal family. To
the argument that the crown must
bo surrounded with becoming dignity, om* cotemporary answers that
a monarch who is well paid can provide n reasonable subsistence for all
his children, and that true dignity
does not depend upon wealth and
display, but upou what peoplo are
in themselves; and it adds that if
monarchy finds it impossible to
adopt itself to this view, another
generation will find monarchy impossible. Those who have looked
into the matter know theft monarchy,
in Great Britain, has been adapting
itself to that view with tolerable
rapidity, nud thoro is no reason to
believe that tho royal family will
peril its hold upon tho people by any
stupid opposition to tho spirit of the
aga    	
Thero is a tondency with tho
average man, observes tin exchange,
to think himself overworked, although tho statisticians havo never
found the number of deaths from
this cause largo enough to bn clas-si-
fied separately. Over-exertion may
lend to disease, and finally to death,
but the cases whicli can bo traced to
this causo alone aro exceedingly
raro, and do not call aloud for remedy. Tlioro is a class of overwork,
however, which is of very great moment to tho public interest, and that
is the excessive labor which officials
who havo tho safety of many of
their fellow-beings in their hands
may bo called upon U perform, such
as railway employees, whose daily
hours of work are usually very long
and who are obliged in so many instances to toil incessantly seven
days in tho week. The subject of
working ovcr-timo by railway officials was lately discussed in the
British parliament, brought up by
tho recent fatality in Ireland, where
the lives of muny people wero sacrificed, Tho practice of keeping men
on duty fur twelve hours was shown
to prevail extensively in England,
to the consequent imperiling of
the travelling public placed at the
mercy of worn and weary men, who
would often be physically incapable
of exercising tho vigilance required
to maintain perfect safety. It was
shown that the very class of men
who havo the most important duties
to perform wero those whoso energies wero frequently overtaxed and
their usefulness impaired. The discussion is expected to do good without any oxocutive or legislative notion being taken. Whoro overwork
is established so clearly as it appears
to havo beon done in the case of the
English railway employes, it becomes a genuine grievance, and tho
protection of socioty demands that
it shall bo remedied. Many a coroner's jury has carefully investigated
the sharpnosa of railway curves and
tho strength of driving wheels, hus
collected evidence regarding signals
and the failure to issue or follow directions, in the hope of solving the
cause of some groat accident. It is
a question whether long hours of
labor might not bo responsible for
some of the blunders that loso life
and money, and render a large supply of trust necessary when one goes
on a railway journey. Tho average
num will continue to make his little
complaint against the burden of
work, but tho specific instances of
real over-exertion, such as falls, to
tho lot of these English railway employes, effectually precludes tho
critic from laying tho blame at tho
door of indolence.

A Fow ri-omiuoiit Hints on (lie Eiltietitiiiii
of Glrlts-IUarrltige it Sail I-i»tl<)iy ami,
ut tlio Host, it Statu Full of CltrOBr
Worry nnd Anxletlos,
I have mot with very fow unmarried
ladies who have not appeared to ine to feel,
after tho ago of thirty, that thoir existence
was thoroughly comfortless nnd wretched,
writes an "Old Maid" in tho N'JW York
Ledger. Many havo I hcard.cxprcss themselves thus openly, and that such is tho
fact can vory easily bo learned by an accurate observer of tho human countenance.
His also certain that three out of every five
of tho young ladies of tlio present day mU3t
remain unmarried, because so many young
men think they can not exist on leas than
tw,o thousand a year when married; and
how few men thoro arc with two thousand n
year compared with tho numbor of young
ladiea in tho country I Thero ore sometime;:
llvo, six, eight girls iu ono fnm ily, goner-
ally all tolerably.protty, and most ot them
pleasing nnd accomplished women-mnny
possoasing talents of no ordinary stamp-
yet, perhaps, in our drawing-rooms thoao
lovely and accomplished beings- aro completely neglected by tho other bc::, "becauso" (I must repeat tho sentimentn I
hnvo heard from thousands of young men
of fashion) "I nover talk to girls. Idaroiioi
pay attention to unmarried women, because
I am not n marrying man; my fiieml, —,
flirted with so-and-so, und wan ngousod of
behaving improperly. I don't liko to ox-
citc falso hopes; I Bhall nover marry, unless
lean find a wife with ut leasthvoor tliroi
thousand a year, becauso I nm much riche*.
unmarried with the small fortuno I hrtvo.1
It is of no uso lo quarrel with thostatooi
society as it is at present constituted, for
wo can not alter it; butl think il might be
beneficial to givo a fow hints on !ho education of women, which might perhaps be
lisoful in procuring them, iu a stato of
slngto blessedness, ns it is very falsely
callod, a greater share of happiness, or a
less load of misery, than thoy at present appear to mo to possess after tho awful ogo of
thirty.
A girl at thirty is callod on old raaiil. She
goes to a ball, and generally sits neglected
all tho evening, or danco with somo goutlo*
man who has beon asked often to dine at
hor father's liouse, and who, porhaps, remarks: "Misa—is rather jmsee—a good
old girl—and I must do my duly there; ami
now I shall danco with tho beautiful Miss
—." My heart always bleeds for the
mortifications I seo endured by these poor
old girla continually. Thoro nro certainly
some single women whoao.tnlents havo made
thom as much considered iu society as thoy
ought to bo; but, thon, I havo generally observed that thoy havo fortunes, or havo
had advantages above others to bring them
Into notico, nnd to givo to tlio natural ambition of tho human species some scope or
action.
I will suppose a case in which there are
four girls—a moderate proportion in ono
family—und two sons; and I will supposo
their father possessor, live thousand a year.
I will suppose one of tho four young ladle's
very pretty, one tolerably pretty und the
other two rather plain. They lmve been educated, in all probability, as tho greater
proportion of American girls are. First of
nil thoy go evory Sunday toehuroh, and are
moderately rich, perfectly honorable, upright and well-principled. It is only for
their own happiness that 1 would propose
nny chango in tlie education of a class for
whom I entertain so IiIrIi a respect
Those four young Indies hi'.vo all heen
brought up with tho Idea that '. \v i...'i becomo wives and mothers, and ; 1 night id
cherish thoso natural uffoction ■ .-.•■■'t*!ill( by
somo rom oto chance one ou! oi iho four ovor
doos marry, will mnko hor so niiiiublo and
lovely ca n married woman. They nro all
allowed to road modern novel:-, at least ali
such as aro considered lo have a moral
tendency. Now, 1 maintain (iirit there is
scarcely ono of these works which doos not
impress any young woman wiih tho idea
thut happiness can alono be found in lovo
nud marriago.
Tho horoiuo is very amiable anil perfect,
Bin-rounded with ndinirora, ull contending
for tho honors of hor least notice; but where
is tho novel wliich represents four poor,
pretty, unnoticed girls, who aro destined
to pasa their young years without bo much
as ono admirer amongst thonil Year
after yoar passes—their bloom and
beauty fade—and my four lovely and
accomplished warm-hearted beings, having seen all their youthful castles
fall ono by one, becomo listless uud
unhappy. Thoy have littlo in lifo to interest thom; ono dies of a complaint of the
spino;nnother lives many years ou arrowroot nnd calf's-foot jolly, and Is enveloped in
flannel oven in July; a third fs Under the
euro of a Dr. S. for indigestion; and, perhaps, the fourth, who is mndo of tougher
materials and born with less feolhigthan
tho others—or, perhaps, from having something to occupy her mind, iu preparing lho
arrow-root for ono sister and ordering the
hard dumplings prepared by Dr. B. for tho
other—outUvos her sorrows and disappointments; and, if sho takes uu Interest in her
brother's children, or n shoro In their cdu*
cation, or tn something which gives vent to
thoso affections which aro implautcd by
naturo in the breast of woman, sho becomes
happy.-
This, then, appears to mo te ho the secret too muoh neglected in femalo education. Tench tho girls, by nil means, that
ono grout source of happiness consists in
tho indulgence of virtuous affootlon; hut
do not teach thein thnt thero is no affection
capable of producing this happiness oxcept auch ns may bo felt for a lover or husband. If tho heart boproporly regulated
It may take a warm nnd Btifllcloiltly engrossing interest in many objects loss intimately connected with It. Marriage is a
snd lottery, nnd, nt the best, is a stnto lull
ii cares aud anxieties. Freedom and Independence ought not to bo lightly parted
with, or sot down ns posscsslous of littlo
valuo.        	
Gravity as an Expectorant.
It is claimed in tho Polyclinic that in case;-.
of pneumonia whoro there is great ombnr
rnssmcutof breathing from accumulation
of accretion in tho bronolal tubos groat
bcnoilt may ofton ho dorlved by Inverting
tlio pationt and having him cough violently whilo in this posltiou. It is easily accomplished by a strong assistant standing
on tho patient's bed, seizing tho sick man's
ankles, turning htm with his faco downward and thon lifting his foot four or fivo
feet abovo tho level of tho mattress. If tho
patient, with his faco ovor tho edge of tho
bed aud his logs thus hold aloft, will cough
vigoroualy two or throo tlmea, ho will got
rid of much oxpcctoratiou that tho oxlmuativo
efforts at coughing fulled to dislodge when
not thus aided by gravity. Lifo haa boon
saved by repeated performances of tliis
maneuver in pneumonia accompnulcd with
groat cyanosis, duo to Inundation of tho
bronchial lubes with mucous Bocrotiou.

hnve become undermined by tho fires,

falling to the earth with a crash like

Mr. Jas. Loamy, the contractor for

has be-on very busy for the past few
days trying to find men to work on
the contract! Owing to tho unusually
largo number of men employed by the
cannctios thi.i year, laborers are not at
all a drug on tho market, and it is
rather a .liilicult task to gather a large
force of men together. Mr. Loamy hns
succeeded in employing a fair number already and ho hopes by Monday
next to have 300 extra men at work
on tho grading. Sub-contractors will
bo given a chance to contract for the
work in sections to suit their capacity.

Yesterday afternoon a man named
Daly, with a companion, started for
Brownsville-in a ski(f. Daly, who was
considerably the worse of liquor, undertook to Btoer the boat with an oar
while his triend did tho pulling. When
about half the distanco to Brownsville
had been covered, Daly, who was stand*
ing up, made a miss stroko_ and fell
headlong over the Btern of the boat
into the water and sunk immediately.
Tho man who wns pulling tho oars,
backed water and waited for him to
rise, but nothing more was soon of
him, and his body haa not yet been recovered. The iinmu of Daly's companion could not bo definitely ascertained, and nothing reliable could be
Itarnod of the deceased's antecedents.
A ninn;- Tribute.
Acting Mayor Townsend has beon
requisitioned to callftpublicmoetingto
discuss the advisability of giving a
public dinner to the Hon. Edgar
Dewdney, minister of tho int-rior, on
tho occasion of his visit to Westminster, this month. Hon. Mr. Dewdney U well and favorably known
throughout British Columbia by the
pioneers of the province, in tho ranks
of which he is proud to lino himself,
having been one of the lirst to wnsh
the Cariboo waters for the golden dust.
He was nt one timo a resident of Westminster, and has always taken n lively
interest in this city, as well ns thu province in general, sinco his romnval to
the east. To an old resident and a
pioneer of the provinco, who has attained to Buch honors and distinction
as has the Hon. Edgar Dewdney, no
more tilting or appropriate tribute
could bo paid than a public recognition
of thi-i kind, and at which, suns cere-
monie, ho and tho other pioneers of
early civilization iu British Columbia,
may meet and again renew their old
time acquaintance.

exhibition. Mr. L. P. Eckstein was

it was a disgrace to Westminster. Ho
had expected the citizens to take hold

Police Court.
(Before T. c. Atkinson, P.M.)
William Shields, was found on
Ewen's wharf nt 9:30 o'clock last evening, by Constable Smith, dead drunk
and sound asleep. Ho was lying within a fow inches uf the edge, of lho
wliarf and had he happened to turn
over just mice ho would havo dropped
into tho wator, nnd vory probably
would havo been drowned. Fortunately tlio constable happened to come
along aud removed him to the lockup
where ho slept off the effects of his
spree in perfect safety. Ho pleaded
guilty, but explained in oxtenuation
that lio had just arrived from a month's
sojourn at Chilliwack, and tho relief
was too much for him. Fined 8*2.50
or 10 days.
Charles Wise, charged on the information of Ralph Jameson with feloniously stealing u boat valued at §10.
Jameson sworo he lost the boat on
May 15th and saw no moro of it until
a week ago last Sunday, whon ho found
it in possession of Wiso near Pitt
river bridgo. Wiso promised to bring
tho boat down and settle for it, but
did not do so. Ilo left tho boat somewhere and thon saitl ho would havo
the mattor fixed up later. Wise said
he Imd bought the boat and paid for it,
but had no doubt it belonged to Jameson. Adam Rend swore ho had owned
the b^nt and sold it to Jameson for 10
gallons of beer; gavo 5 gallons of the
beor to Gray fur hia interest iu tho
boat. Gray afterwards claimed tho
boat and sold it to Wiso, but agreed
to gut it back again and return it to
Jameson. For tho defence Wise produced witnesses who swore Gray had
sold tho boot for S3 to him. Gray
Bworo ho had sold tho boat to Wise.
The magistrate gavo Read and Gray a
severo lecture on thoir conduct iu not
stating who was tho owner of tho boat
boforo selling it. Vv'iw* tbo magistrate suid, was perfectly innocont of
tho charge brought against him, nnd,
if he wished, had good ground for a
civil action. Case dismissed with
costs.
Drowned In llicl'mKer.
Yesterdny nfternoon a carpenter
named T. W. Stewart, who was en.
gaged at work on the new bridgo over
the Nortii Arm of tho Fraser river,
was drowned, From tho facts which
could bo gathered it appears that
Stewart, while assisting in raising a
heavy pieco of timber, was struck on
tho head and fell into the wator in a
condition of unconsciousness. This
appears to be the fact, as ho did not
make an effort to savo himself, although it was known that he was an
expert swimmer. Tlie body of tho unfortunate man was taken uut of tho
wnter about half an hour nfter tho accident, and the circumstance*- of tho
disunity wero reported to tho police
hero by Mr. Smith, tho foreman of tho
bridge carpenters. Tho deceased has
a brother living on Sea Island.—Sun-
day's News.
IMsimtlHfl'-'l Miner*.
The Pennsylvania negroes, who arrived at the Union mines last Sunday
on tho steamer Princess Louise, aro
uot satisfied with tho terms offered,
says the Nanaimo Courier, and, al*
though some have gono to work, otherB
sold what valuables they had und nro
nuw footing it down tho coast enroute
for tho United States. Groat indignation prevails at the action takon by tho
management in tho matter of importing foreign labor whon tho homo mar-
ket is over-tucked and whito men are
leaving, buing unablo to obtain employment. No violence has boen
offered to the colored minors, tho men
seeming to think lhat perhaps the ovil
will work itsolf quietly to a hoad in
thu near future. At present only two
or throo negroes hnvo started on tho
return journey, the road having boen
represented to them as being vory
rough, but more aro expected to follow ero long, and the genoral vordict
is good riddance.
The .lap Titrciv Arena.
The Tftconia Globe has tho following
account of Monday night's Btrugglo betweon Matsada Sorakiohi and Pietro
Arena, in that city: "Tho Jap wns
attired in dark tights, while Arena
wore white tights and bluo trunk. Faddy Meagher was selected as rcforeo,
and callod timo at about 11 o'clock for
tho first bout, which was cutch-as-catch-
cari stylo. Tho Jap, who waa in vory
poor condition, found that Arona was
a wrestler of somo ability, and was
pushed to throw tho latter with a Nelson and log hold in soven minutes.
Thu second fall was Grcco-Romun
style. Arena hero showed that this
style wns his bost, und although
throughout he acted entirely upon the
defensive, yot drew immense applaiiso
from tho houso by tho manner in
which ho evaded tho Jap's offorts to
socuro a full Nelson upon him, nnd
for his groat activity. After several
herculean efforts tho Jap finally succeeded in securing his favorito neck
and shoulder hold and laid tho Italian
'both shoulders down' in the apaco of
twenty-two minutes."

The Vancouver World is responsible for tho following: "An amusing
story is in circulation, and whether
true or not, is moro or loss interesting. Until recently, so tho tiio goes,
Dr. G. Hamilton Griffin, a penitentiary prisoner, occupied a coll upon
tho highest"tier in tho prison. Tho
authorities had a suspicion that tho
prisoners iu thut tier held communication with oach othor, but thoy could
not discover by what moans for a
long timo. Aftor u while a careful
watch was kept uud thou it was discovered that tho doctor was in possession of n trained mouse, to which ho
attached letters by means of a siring,
and thon allowing tho little creature
to run through the ventilator, was thus
enabled to converse with hia neighbors. Tho mouse was an ordinary
one which tho prisoner had caught in
hiB cell and tamed. It is needless to say
that Dr. Griflin was speedily removed
to more congenial quarters.
The Lnte Siiiicrliilrnilenl.
A glance at tho door of Superintendent Roycruft's residenco ou Courte*
nay street disclosed several sheeiB uf
bluo nnd whito paper to the oagloeyed
reporter of tho Times. The light
breeze wafted the papors around and
the roportor, seeking information regarding tho whereabouts of the gallant
superintendent, curried his investigation far enough to inspect the documents- The first paper inspected was
headed "Thomas Argyle, plaintiff,
'verms H. B. Roycraft, defendant.
Tho plaintiff claimed 8400 on a promissory note with 813,33 interest. The
noxt notico was a claim by the Hudson Bay Company for $290.75. This
account was for 8151, account rendered; ono hat, $6.75, wino, 87; cigars
82(1; total §290.75. The third document was issued by McLean & Stewart, account rendered, $104. Document number four was issued • at the
instance of Joshua Davies fur the
amount of 8400, money loaned, with
875 commission. A. A. Aarouaon's
claim for 8257, money loaned, was
tacked up near the other papers issued
by the sheriff. The claims aggregate
81283.08, whicli will be levied by dis*
tress on tho furniture of defendant unless tho claims aro settled within eight
days. The government auditor examined tho books of tho departed superintendent a few days ago, and it is reported discovered several shoitiges.
