Tlie number of insane persons
under treatment in New York has
increased in sixteen years from
5,000 to 15,000, and at the rate
they are going daft in Sing Sing
for want of mind-relaxing labor,
thoy aro likely to increase in the
next ten years to 150,000,—Pioneer
Press.
"1 hope," said Cardinal Gibbons
in a recent after-dinner speech at
Philadelphia, "the day may never
come when we shall be obliged to
call upon tho stato to build our
churches; for if they build our
churches they may dictate to us
what doctrine we are to preach or
what we are not to preach. As for
myself, I believe in the union of the
church and the people,"
Patience—A. minister's little
daughter, who had heen to church
for the lirst time, and heard her
father proach, was questioned by
him on reaching home as to how she
liked his sermon. There was an
embarassed silence; then the little
maid, tired out with the long strain
of "being good," and yet anxious
not to oflend in any wise, made
answer, with a little long-drawn
breath of patient resignation: "You
preached awful long, papa, but I
beared it."
Speaking about Gladstone the
other day, Michael Davitt said:
"It is absurd to say that Mr. Gladstone is growing old, He Is not to
be reckoned by years, for thoy have
no effect on him. I nover saw anything more remarkable in my life
than his last speech in the house of
commons. Ho loosened his collar,
tucked up his sleeves, buttoned his
coat around his waist and wont at
his work with the air of a conqueror,
Ho spoke in better voice than he did
live years ago, and gesticulated with
his arms, legs and head in n fashion
that indicated a reservoir of intense
physical energy. He is too young
a man yet for any talk of old age."
"You odious wretch!" screamed
Mrs. Buttorwax, after catching her
husband in the act of kissing the
hired girl. "Sh1, my dear! Sh'!
It was a political necccssity," said
Buttervax soothingly. "What do
you mean,you monster?" cried Mr*i.
!>., glaring at her husband through
her tears, with a glare that almost
hissed like a red hot horseshoe in a
bucket of water. "You see, my
dear," said Butterwax, "I talk of
running for Mayor this yenr, and a
man who talks of running for Mayor
has to resort to measures to make
himself popular, which—er, whioh—
er—which are—er—aro to be looked
upon as having a purely political
significance." In the next moment
the dear woman was clasped upon
his breast.—Ex.
Sea-guls have a well-known habit
of picking up mussels from the
strand, soaring aloft, and dropping
them upon stones to break them
open. Alfred Hollister, of Seahright,
N.J., wears largo patches of court
plaster on his shining bald head in
consequence of the sagacity of theso
birds, Mr. Hollister wns walking
along tho beach near his home n day
or two ago when he saw a gull
flutter upward from the sands.
Suddenly his hat blew oil', and in
the next instant he felt a hard blow
on the top of the head thnt stunned
hiin a moment, Looking upward,
ho saw the gull bearing down upon
bim, and, dodging, the puzzled bird
flew off. It had mistaken Mr.
Hollister's shining cranium for a
stone and cut a large furrow in it.—
Ex.
Says an exchange : The sad caso
which occurred a few days ago at
Norwalk, Ohio, in which a young
lady died in the dental chair, after
being placed under the influence of
chloroform, emphasises the noed that
exists for dentists to be well
acquainted with tho practice of
ausoultation, whereby they may be
able to ascertain the condition of
the patient's heart with enough
certainty, at auy rate, to know
whether to employ, or not to
employ, a powerful anaesthetic. In
the opinion of most people, however,
chloroform should not be given
exoept by a duly qualified practitioner; and until dentists combine
with their othor qualifications a
practical ability to diagnose incipient
or developed heart disease, it would,
no doubt, ho well to call in a physician when chloroform is required.
We believe, however, that the
modern dental courso includes instruction in tho usual methods of
auscultation.

Mil. vite's caule.
London, Maroh 20.—Tlio memorial
to Mr. Smith requesting him not to
resign aa leader of the houso of commons is thought to be sufficient to show
him the true estimation in which the
attacks upon him are held. Seldom
has there beon a memorial ao numerously sinned. Scarcely any member
of tho conservative party, who ia now
in London failed to put hia sk-nntun.-
to it. The memorial would havo been
cheerfully signed by many Gladston-
ians had it been presented to them.
Meanwhile, Mr. Smith, though tired
and jaded, iB in good health and spirits
and has no preient intention of relinquishing his duly,
count Herbert's visit.
The mystifications cunoei-uini' count
Herbert Bismarck's stay in England
are wholly imaginary. The principal,
if not the only reason for his presence
at the Gorman embassy is to arrange
soveral questions concerning tlio approaching visit of tho German Emperor. It is not yet settled whether hs
will come among simply as tho Queen's
grandson, or be received und entertained as an Emperor, A complete reap-
p roach ment has taken place between
the English and German courts, and
the adjustment of the personal differences between the Count and tho
Prince of Wales iB au accomplished
faet. Count Herbert spent Sunday
with Lord and Lady Roseberry at the
Durdansi. ■
SIR THOMAS OLADSTONE.
Sir Thomas Gladstone usually attended service at Westminster abbey
on sunday afternoons when ho waa In
town, and he was invariably mobbed
when walking down the ttare afterward by people who mistook him for
his younger brother, whom he grently
resembles. But Thomas was taller
and moro stately, and he lived and
diod a tory of the old Lord Etdon type;
and his consistency and the plainness
with which he announced his opinions
made him respected even by hi* most
bitter political opponents. He went
to Oxford in 1853 and voted against
his brother when he opposed by Mr.
Perciral, after he had joined Lord-
Aberdeen's administration. Ho invariably inveighed agnimt Mr. Gladstone's policy whenever he mado a po-
1 tie.il speech, though personally the
tttu were on the most cordial terms.
Thoy also differed iu church views for
Sir Thomas, who was n most devout
man, favored the evangelical side.
THE   RUSSIAN   AMBASSADOR.
I remembur hearing that Count
Schoui-alofl', owed his appointment us
nmbiY'Btitlor loLoinion, to the jealously
of n certain Itussiun lady, who insinuated to tlio Emperor Alexander Iho
IF, that ho was giving himself eu-iIi
aits at St. IVtersbur", that hu Ind
even gained tlm nickuamo if '■Po'L-r
the fourth." He did viduitblo Bervico
at the Berlin congress in tlili direction
of poicc with Lord Beacoiisfield, who
was a gaud judge, conceived a hiqh
opinion of_his diplomatic ability.
Seldom "has th'cro been .a^nan with
moro charming manners and address.
He was immensely popular when here
as tho Russian ambassador, aud was a
constant attendant in the Row where
he always rode two horses, a black and
an iron gray. Not at the samo time ;
he seemed to havo heard of a second
horse iu the hunting field and always
had one in the row in charge of a
groom. Count Schouvaloff spoke English with perfect fluency and was a do*
lightful companion. There haa been a
great deal of stupid, malicious and ignorant gossip about Duchess of Marlborough's presentation to the Queen.
I am enabled to s'ate that her majesty
has expressed Iho opinion, that thero
is nothing whatever to prevent the
Dutchess coming to court tho next
drawing room, or whenever sho pleases.

A resolution was introduced protesting against the building of the
Mission bridge with a main span of
less width than 100 feet, and the resolution ordered to be telegraphed to
the government. The resolution carried unanimously, d
Aid. Cunningham said he was aony
any company would attempt, to block
the Frasor river by building a bridge
with such a narrow main span as 60
feet, on the Columbia river large
barges were used along with steamers
and the same would soon be the caso
with tho steamers engaged in the Fraser river trade.. He favored placing
ar. injunction on the bridge unless
provision is immediately made for
widening the span.
Aid. Scoullar' thought tho matter
was one of the greatest importance to
tht- city and up river districts. The
building of the bridge looked like a
scheme to divert the' up river trade to
another source, He also favored an
injunction if necessary.      ■

By reports elsewhere it will be
seon tlmt the tuitrtl of trade and city
counoil have taken prompt and energetic action in the interests of the
free and unobstructed navigation ol
the Fraser River, which is threatened by the manner of construction
understood to he contemplated in
the building of tho O.P.R. bridge
across the Fraser at the Mission. It
ia understood on good authority that
the intention is to huvo the widest
space between piers only 60 feet,
This is strongly objected to, and
with good reason, by our board oi
trade and oity couucil, and a
resolution from both of these
bodies, conveying an emphatic protest, hu been telegraphed to our
member, Hr. Chisholm, with instructions to bring the natter immediately before tha minister of
marine. Copies of tha resolutions
have also been forwarded to the provincial government and to the up-
river municipalities, asking for
united action in the matter, The
miniiter of marine is asked in the
resolution to "prevent the construction of this or any other bridge
acrou the main channel of Fruer
River having a draw of less width
than 100 feet" As the river is
navigable for large river steamers
far above the Mission, and the current at that point is very swift during a portion of the summer, at
leut, the importance of insisting
npon thia provision cannot be overestimated. The Dominion authorities cannot act too promptly or
decidedly in the matter, u the dam.

permitted to carry out their intentions with respect to tha bridge,

heen introduced into the local house
the other day, by Mr. Higgins, to
the eflect "that the lieutenant-governor in council should formulate
and lay before the bouse at its next
session a scheme for a definite nil-
way polioy, said scheme to comprehend the granting of a specified sum
of money per mile; or a grant of
land in. lieu of a money subsidy; or
a subsidy of both land and money,
to aid in the construction and completion of lines of railway within
the province. Such subsidies of
money or land, to be granted only to
such companies u shall be approved
by the lieutenant-governor in council, as having established to their
satisfaction their ability to construct
. and complete the said railway.,"
While the formulating of a "definite
railway polioy" might .be a harmless
pastime for the "lieutenant-governor
in counoil" during the holidays, this
little joke of the ambitious member
for Esquimalt, if made a praotical
one on the lines and the scale which
exist, probably, in the prophetic
mind of the mover, would assume a
serious aspect. The only limitation
Mr. Higgins has seen fit to append
to his -notion is "Such subsidies of
money or land, or of both money and
land, to be granted only to such
companies as shall be approved by
the lieutenant-governor in council,
.at having established to their satisfaction their ability to construot and
complete the said railways." Nothing is said about the unimportant
little matter of operating the said
railways, nor of "establishing, to the
satisfaction of the lieutenant-governor in council" that any proposed
railway really merited substantial
provincial aid at a provincial work
in the broadest sense, nor even u. to
the extent the public treasury and
landi ihould in mulcted for tuch
schemes. But we anticipate, probably: the "formulating" process will,
no doubt, deal with all thete details,
and we suppose our legislators can

la noticing tbe Senlinets suggestion, in a recant iuue, that tho pro-
vimeial --overnment snoald build the
tshaawap k Okanagan Railway as a
government enterprise, we stated
that it struck us "that it would bo a
rather bold experiment for tho government of so young and as yot not
very 'flush' a country to undertake"
such a work, kc. We alao suggested
that the Sentinel should trot out
some "figgers" that it possessed to
"back up its opinion." ' In its issuo
of Saturday our inland cotemporary
does so, at follows: "Without nny
preliminary remarks, then, we will
"trot out some figgers," for the benefit of Tas Columbia*). In the first
place it is estimated that the building of the line will cost from $600,-
000 to $760,000, these figures being
the estimates of two engineers. The
Dominion government hu granted a
subsidy of $3,200 per mile, and the
provincial one of $4,000 per mile,
making a total of $360,000. Taking
the highest estimate as the cost of
building there would be left unprovided for in round numbers the sum
of $400,000. But the holders of the
charter now propose that the provincial government guarantee for
twenty years bonds to the amount
of $1,200,000 at 5 per oent. in placu
of granting $4,000 per mile subsidy.
This would mean iv tax of $62,500
per year for that term, or in all $1 ,-
250,000 to bo paid by the provinco
for the building of the road, whicli
The Columbia*) will no doubt agroe
would be a heavy tax. On tho
other hand, if the government would
undertake to build tbo road, after
applying the Dominion subsidy,
there would still be unprovided the
turn of tix hundred thousand dollars.
It does not require any expert at
figures to prove that $600,000 is a
much easier amount to raise than
would be double that amount. Regarding the advisability of the government operating tbe road as a provincial enterprise, that is a matter
for future consideration. The writer
hilt always held the opinon that
better satisfaction would be given
the people of any country were railroads and other publio works of a
like nature operated by the government for the people. But that point
will not be pressed at this juncture.
What we particularly want to see is
a start made on thit line of railway
u well at others in the interior—
and we believe the best interests of
the province will be subserved if the
government undertakes the work.
To get at a definite idea as to tho
cost of the proposed line we would
suggest thnt tenders be asked by the
government for the building and
completion of the SI miles of road
required. This will at Once decide
this much disputed point, and there
would then be some definite point to
'Start from. If it was .not deemed
wise to proceed with tbe work after
the tenders were received, there
would be only the advertising to pay
for, a small amount considering the
value of the information that would
be gained. lack of spaco prevents
our going more fully into the advantages to be gained by having this
line in operation, but in future issues
we will have more to lay regarding
this phase of the matter." Our co-
temporary's "figgers" so far show
that the cost to the province, for
constructing the Shuswap k Okanagan Railway, or guaranteeing bonds,
would be very heavy either way.
Before such an outlay was undertaken by the provincial government
it would require to be demonstrated
very clearly that the road could be
profitably operated, ahd that the
benefit to the province would be such
that within a reasonable time the
treasury would be recouped indirectly for the expenditure. Our cotemporary says: "What we particularly
want to see is a start made on this
line of railway, as well as on others
in the interior." We have no doubt
of it at all. The desire is natural
and commendable to a degree. But
in the many provincial railway enterprises claiming government aid,
there appears to us to bo great danger in establishing the precedent of
shouldering any one of them upon
the as yet slender provincial fcrea
tury. However worthy the S. k O.
R. scheme, we do not aee that the
provincial government oan afford to
give more than their subsidy of $4,-
000 per mile, already guaranteed—
which would amount to more than
(200,000 total—unless it can be
ihown that the undertaking would
ba clearly and speedily recuperative.

Id ererj city there are indivulunl
examples of men whose coituc-cLions
with its business pursuit--:, whose
prominence in nil matters of public
enterprise, whose record for un Winching integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, make them
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever oxalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have wc
in tho subject of tliis sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in I8G2 and
has, through nil the vicissitudes of
twenty seven years' trade, maintained the even tenor of his way.
His transactions lmve increased
year by year, and tlio circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widening and his firm extending until he now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in British Columbia. His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this space is tilled
with a complote and extensi ve assortment of hardwure, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wall-paper, woodon-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, houso furnishings,
iron pipo and fittings. Tliis house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and docs every variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. Thero is no
house in the trade which carries a
more complete stock or whoso facilities surpass those of tliis establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of time this gentleman
has been in business and  the suc-
s he has attained are better
recommendations than the loudest
praise we could possibly give. "We
may mention, however, to our readers who have not yet become acquainted with this firm,.that none
in the Northwest has a better reputation forfair and honorable dealiug.

dmliMto AMATEUR CHiilMISTM.
A Science Oloaely Linked with the
Ignoranoe of Superstition.
Among simple experiments which can bo
readily and cheaply, exhibited, writes Richard A. Proctor in tho Louisville Courier-
Journal, the following may be mentioned,
which require only readily procurable ingredients and materials:
Four into ono glass a small quantity of
a solution of nitrate of bismuth, and into
another a small quantity of a solution of
prusslate of potassium. These two liquids
aro both colorless. But on pouring tbem
together a liquid showing a fine yellow color
is produced. Tho chemical interchange
which takes placo produces prusslate of
bismuth and nitrate of potassium, in placo
of nitrate of bismuth and prussiato of potassium. Tho prussiato of bismuth gives
tho yellow color. In like manner a mixture
of a few drops of tho colorless prussiato of
potassium, with a small quantity of an
equally colorless solution of the sulphate of
iron, produces a liquid which has a beautiful bluo tent, itself more than sufllciont to
rcwurd tho oxporimonter by its lovolinoss
for tho slight trouble and oxponso which
tho experiment involves. (I must admit
that the beautiful colors and forms which
aro obtained in many chemical experiments
havo a greater charm for mo than even tlio
scientific principles which such experiments illustrate; and, somewhat strangely,
I find tho artistic pleasure I derivo from
color experiments incroase with advancing
years.) Tho bluo color obtained in this experiment is tho familiar Prussian bluo of
our paint boxes. Tho decomposition which
takes place is simple Sulphuric acid leaves
tho iron to combine wlththo potassium, tho
potassium leaving the iron to combine with
tho prusslc acid.
. A littlo of tho solution ol sulphate of copper mixed with tho prussiato of potassium
of tho last experiment, produces a reddish
brown liquid, not particularly attractive in
color, tho chemical decomposition giving
sulphate of potassium and prusiate of copper.
Tho formation of a block liquid from two
colorless liquids is interesting as being tho
process by which tho old Ink of commerce
was formed. A small quantity of gallic
tincture is to bo addod to water, and to the
colorless liquid thus obtained is to bo added
n small quantity of the sulphate of iron.
Tho mixture becomes black. (Tho gallic
acid, unites with the iron In this experiment.)
Among chemical experiments of the most
striking nature thoso in which solids unite
to form liquids or liquids to form solids aro
especially interesting. If oqual parts of
sulphate of sodium and acetate of load, in
the form of tho powdor, bo mixed togothor,
and thoroughly pounded in a mortar, tho
two solids by their mutual chemical interaction will bo resolved into a liquid. Again,
if muriate of calcium andn saturated solution of carbonate of potash be mixed together those two transparent liquids com
bine to form sulphate of lime, an opaque and
almost solid substance. If a littlo nitric
acid bo addod to the mixture it is changed
into a transparent liquid.
The study of chemistry even in tho form
of sueh simp!** experiments as tbeso is especially valuuble us illustrating processes
which take placo within our own bodies,
in digestion, in respiration, and iu tho circulation of tho blood. It is desirable ov
whon wo aro it health to have somo idea of
the physical itaturo of such processes; lor
an intelligent conception of such matters
suggests the importanco of attention to diet,
exorcise, cleanliness, and so forth. Many
of the simplest details of our dally lifo in-
volvo important chemical principles, the
recognition of which encourages careful
regimen and attention to many matters
which aro apt to bo noglected. 'Among the
experiments wo aro constantly making aro
thoso which dopond on the Interactions of
various forms of food, solid and liquid, with
tho various fluids produced within tho body,
these fluids, being themselves tho products
of chemical combinations and changes not
within out control, or but vory slightly.
It need hardly bo said that whero tho
body is boing treated with medicines of
various sorts, important chemical experiments aro iu progress which It is bettor for
many reasons te understand. Of course,
for most persons undor a courso of medical
treatment, implicit obedlenco to tho instructions of tho doctor is proper and necessary. But ovon so it Is better to know
why Buch obedienco is desirable. Ignorance of chemical principles moro often
leads to nogloet of tho doctor's injunctions
than would tho opposito fault of too
clear an idoa of hiB plan and
purposo; though I know many doctors entertain strong objections against
giving any explanation of their pro-
fjcriptions or any reasons for adopting tbem, By this thoy avoid such unwiso
interference with their plans as might bo
suggested to somo among their moro in-
quiBitivo patients. But ou tho othor hand,
ill-informed patients are apt to neglect do-
tails which thoy mlstakonly regarded as
unimportant. A dootor, for instance, tells a
pationtto take some modicino half an hour
after meals, and perhaps for a few days the
patient tends to tho injunction, But aftor
a whilo he becomes careless, and from time
to timo allows tho proper timo to pass, and
not knowing any reason for supposing that
the injunction as to timo is important, he
lakes tho modicino before meals instead of
after, A littlo knowledge of chemistry
would show hlm tbat the ohango, instead of
being a matter of no moment may entirely
alter, or even reverse, the effect of the medicine
Chemical experiments with tho body,
though cheap whero thoy belong either to
scientifically conducted regimen or to judicious control of tho body by medical] appliances, aro apt to be vory dear indeod whore
there Ib Insufficient knowledge. Chemical
reactions wbloh ore vory interesting whon
watched in a laboratory may produce in-
tense discomfort, danger or Oven death,
when thoy proceed with tho experimenter's
body. A littlo knowlodgo is hero n dangerous thing, unless tho learner is content to
recognize tho limits of his knowlodgo as indicating tho necessity, either for further
study or for obedienco to the suggestions and
injunctions of those who know moro.
CURED  BY A BATH.
A Froi|)cotor'H Treatment of Bruises and
Mountain-Ft-voi".
In 18001 started from tbo Comstock on a
prospecting expedition, writes a Virginia
City correspondent to tbo Bait Lake Tribune. The lirst day wo traveled about thirty
miles and camped on tho Carson river below Fort Churchill. It was my luck to have
been mounted ou a bucking mustang. I had
boon pitched over his bead and ovor his toil,
and had besides gone off onco or twice on
side excursions. I bad not been on a horso
beforo for years and tho constant jolting 1
received was about ns bonc-brouking as my
tumbles among the recks, 1 was sere from
tho crown of my hoad to tho solos of my
feet, I feared I would not be able to mount
my mustang tho noxt morning. I therefore determined to drive tho pain out of my
body by moans of a hot bath. I took a shovel mul leveled a spaco of ground on tho
bunk of tho river ubout six foot long mul
throo foot wide. I then gathorod some dry
cottonwood and willow polos, brush and
such othor fuol as I could And and built u
flro on the charred patch of ground. When
tho flro bod burned down and tho bed coals
left bad bogun to die out, I raited all off
down to tho ground. I then'dug up the
ground to tbo depth of two or threo inches,
throwing out all cobblo stones and sticks,
whon I leveled it all down and spread on it
ono of my blankets. I thon covorod myself
with the other blanket, tucking in both
head and heels. A hotter bath I
novor experienced, A sort of dry
vapor poured up out of tho ground that utmost cooked me. It poured up through tho
blanket lu a thousand streams and hud a
strong flavor of mothor earth. I stood the
heat an hour or two- and then was obliged
In remove toooolor quarters, when I cooled
down by degrees in order not to tako cold,
Tho noxt morning I awoke without n siuglo
puln or aoho and m "limbor as, an eel." Although no moisture wns perpeptlblo lutho
ground on whleh I built my flro, yet a certain degree of moisturo seemed te havo
;omo into it when I rakeduWay the lire nnd
began stirring up tho soil.
Wc wore out in tho mountains about u
mouth. While in tho Humboldt range one
of my party had an attack of mountain
fever, I made a big sage-brush lire on the
littlo flat in which we were camped ami
gavo him ono of my batbs. He howled like
a coyote about the heat. Ho swore ho was
beiug cooked alive and I had hard work lo
Iteep him under tho blanket for an hour.
Ho would have been out in spite of mc hud
I not handed our guide, a wild raw Indian,
a shot-gun and told him to Bhoot tho man if
he got up. Tho pationt Imew that tho Indian
was just big enough fool to shoot, and so
.was compelled to conflno himself to groans
and howls until I took tho gun uway from
tho Indian and relieved him of his watch.
The Indian wns sulky tho remainder of the
evening, us he did not like Tom and hoped to
liavo been allowed to shoot. Tom never
had tho least sign of mountain-fever during
the remainder of tho trip, and always after
the oxporienco of that ovoning was ready
to tako his turn at cooking, getting wood
or hunting horses.	
NOT SO STRANGE.
A Bright Girl Who  Could Turn Her Attention In Many Direction**,
Who has not, at somo timo, stood meekly
by while a shop-girl talked of her personal
affairs with some intimate friend, and
wondered how " one small head " could enable hor nt tho samo time to sell her goods
and entertain her visitor! One portion ut
[oust scorns to havo solved that problem,
says tho Youth's Companion. A gentleman
oho day went into a small storo to mako a
trifling purchase, and whilo tlio pretty
laleswoman rolled up his parcel, she alsr]
told an admiring young man, wflo was loaning on tho counter, the ntory of her last attendance ut tho Debating Club:
" Ho was just as disagreoablo as ho could
bo that night," sho wont on undismayed by
double audience "He said if Kate
Hooper and I sat lu tho back seats end
laughed, tlio committeo would give up inviting us to como. Thank you " (as sho passed
ttie customer his change), and sho went on
with hoi-story to its bitter end of quurrcliug
und parting.
Still tho gentleman lingered, and though
sho several times glanced at him In surprise, was evidently determined to prolong
his stay boyond that of tho young man who
finally took tho hint, and withdrew. Then
said tho customer;
I havo been greatly interested in watching you, and Beolng how many things you
could do at onco. You soom to he ablo to
givo your attention to several occupations
at tho same time."
Of courso," returned Blic, pert but flattered. "Anybody must be stupid that can
only do ono thing at a timo."
" You did up my packago,told a story, put
your counter in ordcr-and gavo me change,"
said the gentleman, admiringly, " and, as
ouo might say, at tbo samo moment. Now
I havo heard it declared that, a person can
only givo his entire attention to ono subject at a time."
" Well, I don't know as I'm any smarter
than anybody else," said sho, bridling,"but,
ut any rato, that's what/can do!"
"Oh,thoro's ono thing I ought to mention," said tho gontlemrn. " You know
you gavo mo my chango just as you wero
tolling your friend that interesting story.
You should havo given mo eiglity-fivocents,'
but instead you made it a dollar and eighty-
five It was vory kind of you, but you must
allow mo to return it.  Good moiviiif,I"
So ho left tho girl who could -urn her
attention in so many directions v-ondorlug,
as she looked nt that extra dollar, if sho
did not appear rather foolish.
MARRIED  BY A TRICK.
How a Chicago Man and HU Wife Wero
Wed ln Boston.
years age, whon free-love notions
wero running around looso in New England,
says the Chicago Tribune, a Boston man aud
woman who had imbibed of these doctrines
until thoy affected to despise nil tho common conventionalities of lifo, camo to
tho conclusion that thoy would livo togother
without going through tho ridiculous and
unnecessary ccroraony of marriage They
both movod In good society and made no
secret of their intention; in fact thoy announced it to ovory ono thoy met. Staid
old Boston's aristocracy was shaken te tho
depths at such an unheard-of proceeding—
apparently determined upon in the best of
faith. Relatives, frionds and evon chanco
acquaintances tried all manner of reasoning
and persuasion upon tho wayward couple,
but to no avail. Tbo man and woman
quietly pursued tho even tenor of theirway,
not being tho least alarmed, when logal
proceedings were threatened by tho woman's parents. So a plan was patched up by
somo intimate friends of tho couple by
which it was hoped to circumvent thom
iu their intention, The man was prevailed upon to givo a dinner party, to
which wore invited prominent society people, including tho Governor of tho
Stato. When dessert was put upon tho
table tho talk became genoral, and Boon
turned upon tho perverse couple. Tho man
and woman answorod every question put to
tbem with the most porroct equanimity.
Finally tho Governor took a band in tho
conversation. Aftor asking a fow questions and commenting on tho answers thereto In a calm judicial manner ho turned to
tho man and asked:
"Do you, Mr. —, intend to lovo nnd
cherish this woman as your wife, for good
or evil, for bettor or worsol"
" Yes, sir," answored the man, calmly.
" And do you, madam, Intend to obey this
man as your husband, for better or worse,
for good or evil!"
"I do, sir," answered tho woman, politely.
Thon, hy the power vested in mo as Gov*
ornorof this Commonwealth, I deiaro you
to bo man and wife."
And thus tho plana of tho couple wero
frustrated, for which they afterwards declared they wore heartily thankful. Thoy
are now old and respected residents of Chicago. ______________
Cloth Mado of GUm.
M. Dubua Bonnot, of Lille, France, has
Invented a process of. spinning and weaving gloss into oloth. Tho warp is composed
of Bilk, forming tho body and ground-work,
on whicli tho pattern in glass appears, as
effected by tlio weft. Tho roquislto flexibility of glass thread for manufacturing
purposes is to bo ascribed to its extremo
fineness, as pot loss than from, fifty to sixty
of tho original thread* (spun by stonm-cn-
gine power) are required to form ono
thread of tho woft. Tho process is slow,
for no more than a yard of cloth can bo produced in twelve hours. The work, howovor, la extremely beautiful and comparatively cheap. A French paper, commenting ou this discovory, says: "When wo
figure to oursolvos an apartment decorated
with cloth of glass, and respondent with
lights, wo must bo convinced that It will
equal in brilliancy all that' tho Imagination
can concelvo and roalizo; tn u word, tho
wonders of tho enchanted palaces jnen-
tionod in thb Arabian talcs," '
For Amateur BHUanlliti,
Tho one great mistake all beginners make
in billiards la to study angles and curves
and then enter into a profound geometrical
calculation of results. You can nover succeed that way, aa thoro is not a man in tho
business who knows tho law of angles. Tho
first lesson should be to study force, and as
soon as you have thut undor perfect control
it Ib timo enough to watch tho way exports
mako the mora difficult shots,' theory ia
worso than useless, and the Bolenco ef
curves, masses, draws and banks all do*
pond on practice Until a novlco has his
wrist under perfect control and knows to a
nlcoty what force to apply he only wastes
his timo and money In trying to master tbo
gome. It is like a fellow trying algebraic
equations boforo ho knows multiplication,
and tho only thing thnt will do a man good
is to tako a single ball and proctico long
enough to acquire a knowledge of force.
Suicide hy Oegroei.
"You say he committed, suicide on the In-
Btnllmentplnu! How's thatl'' "fit* moved
from Chicago to Now York, then to Cincinnati, thon to St, Louis, whero bo took' to
drinking boor, then whiskey, wont to ailvo-
cont eating houso for his meals, and finally
became a Clgaretto-Biuokor. What olie
could you coliltl"

Grading bn the line of tho Southern
Railway is proceeding rapidly, and tho
dirt is flying at a lively rate. Tins
morning.three more gangs of men
were set to work, nud another gang
will bo put on to-morrow. The number of men now employed on tlio lino
between Brownsville and Port Kells is
40Q. A larger force would bo employed btit'for soiiie of tho lino being yet
too .wet to work economically. Mr.
McCammon, C. E. took out a gang of
men to the Serpentine flats this morning, armed with nil tho necessary tools,
to cut drains in that vicinity preparation*, to grading tho road-bed. The

Tho dramatised form of this beat
known of American tales was presented lost ovening to a good audience in
Hart's Opera Hoime, by'the McFadden
Company. _For a play that has so littlo literary merit, and a great deal of
sentiment, it requires a caste of merit*
to rendor it;' acceptable, and strong
scenic effects, nnd tile McFadden combination filled the bill in every respect,
if tho hounds which do not come up to
thu popular standard of forooity, aro
excepted. "Marks, tho lawyer," and
**Topsy" are both inexpressibly funny,
while littlo "Eva" is as angelic as the
gifted authoress could have desired,
and without particularising,, all tho
leading characters wore excellent and
highly pleased the audience. The performance will bo repeated this evening.
The tnu-ic interspersed was of a very
attractive character, and consisted of
songs by the famous Bay City quartette
and charming duetts by the little Putnam twin sisters. - News-Advertiser.
A Tale From the Sea.
The fishing schooner 0. H, White
returned to Port Townsend on Friday night from a.fishing cruise in the
North Pacific, The master, - Cnpt.
Chri'. Johanaen, relates the following
remarkable adventure which befell
the schooner, tho truth of whioh is
vouched by every member of the crew:
The schooner .was anchored on Flattery banks with nearly ull the crew
out in dories catching halibut, when a
school of finbacked whales approached
the schooner, and in their gambol.-,
one of the animals became entangled,
in tho vessel's cable. The huge mammal started off. towing tho schooner
,at a rapid rate, tlie captain and cool;
(the. oply persona on board) being
powerle^-'to-Srevcut it. The whale
towed* tho vessel westward, und gradually circled round, finally bringing
the schooner to within a few miles of
where it sUrted. after traversing fully
a distance of nixty miles. Tho windlass was rigged and the cable drawn
close, when it was seen thut tho whale
measured oVer eighty feet. With onu
turn the cable became disentangled
and t)fe nmuiter th'oii' .disappeared be*
Math tho waves. The cftptiiln and
cook hoisted sails and returned for tho
boat*, where the crew wore found
some twenty hours later.

held yesterday atlernoou to tako action
in tho matter of llio Mission It-ridge,
uow being built by the C. P. U. Aftor
discussing the subject thoroughly thu
following resolution wm iutioduccd
and passed unanimously: Moved by
Mr. Thoa. Cunningham aud u.couded
by   Mr. W. Wolfenden:
Whereas, tho board of trade of New
Westminstor has beon informed and
lino reason to believe that the plans uf
the railway and traffic bridge, now
in course of construction by the C.P.R.
ncrosa tho Fraeer River at or noar St.
Mary's Mission provides for a draw of
only 00 feot iu width; and whereas the
free and unobstructed navigation of
said river ia of vital importance tu tho
city and distriot of New Wostminstor,
and tho said space of 60 feetia entirely
insufficient to allow the safe passage of
such steamers as now navigate tho
rivor:
Resolved that this board respectfully
request the honorable the minister of
marino to prevent the construction of
this or any other bridge across tho
main channel of iho Fraser River having a draw of loss width than 100 ft.,
and that im media tu action bo taken
inasmuch ns this board has reason to
believe that the construction of said
bridge will bo pushed forward to completion with all possible speed.
At. thu city council last night a
similar resolution was passed, nnd
both wero telegraphed to Mr. Chiiholm at Ottawa to lay before tlio miniiter of marine, Copies will also bo
sent to the provincial government nnd

cents per capita, or §120,000 per an
num, from tho Dominion government
on tho score cf population alone, In
the samo period the revenue from
other sources would be largely augmented, nnd tho total revenue nro-
bibly reach §1,000,000. How could
this bo better employed than in tho
extension of railways and public improvements?
The Bpeaker before putting the resolution to tho vote said that, in his
opinion, it was eut of orJer inasmuch
as it suggested a lino of policy, while

public money. Ho thought the resolution was out of order, and so ruled.

water?' Answer; "The plans have

The cummitle appointed to be present in Viotoria at the opening of the
tenders for bridges, composed of Thos.
Kidd, reeve, and Wm, F. Stewart,
councillor, reported, that they proceeded tu Victoria; were informed by
tho chief commissioner of lands and
works that it was not the custom of
his department to mako known the
amount of any tender until the contract for tho performance of the work
was signed. He would go so far, howover, ns to Bay thut it would require
about 40 per cent, moro money than
had been appropriated by tho government and tho municipality. The chief
commissioner and provincial secretary
woro both of tho opinion that before
taking any further steps in the matter,
it would be wise to enter into commui-
cition with tho Canadian Pacific Railway Company with tho view of obtaining a more definite proposition than
\h.\t already made by them, and, if
possible, to make an arrangement with
tho company to undertake tho construction of '■iiiubined railway and traffic bridges. Tho provincial secretary
informed the committee that Mr. Van
Home had told him in Montreal, a
few months ago, that it was the intention uf the company to build a branch
lino across tho Delta lands, and ho
(the provincial secretary) belioved they
would procoed with the work during
next year. Undor these circumstances
the committee reoommended the council to request tho government to communicate with the company with that
end in view. The council adopted tho
report and instructed the clerk tu carry
