NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The "White Oaps" aro not an
unadulterated evil after all. The
Indiana White Gaps have notified
a local merchant to quit swearing
and soil eggs   and  butter  cheaper.
Countess Lirish, daughter of
Duke Louis of Bavaria, has been
sentenced to perpetual exile from
Bavaria for her connection with
events which led to the tragic death
of Rudolph,
The hotel-keepers in Washington
nre solid in their opposition to a six-
year Presidential term. They
wontd vote unanimously to have a
President inaugurated every month.
—Am. paper.
The Nicaragua Canal bill has
received the President's signature,
and an American exchange remarks
that the early commencement of
work may afford an opening for the
discharged laborers of the Panama
Canal. 	
There is a novel bill before the
New York legislature, providing
for tho establishment of four dairy
schools for the purpose of giving
free instruction to young men and
women in the management of the
dairy. The bill appropriates $30,-
000. 	
The dirty and offensive habit of
spitting tobacco juice has received
recognition as an illegal offence by a
grand jury in Philadelphia. That
body has found true bills against John
F. Berg for malicious mischief in
spitting on the front door-steps of
several houses in the northern part
of the oity.   	
An exchange has the following
among "Thoughts for Sunday":
When Ood intends to fill a soul, He
first makes it empty; when He
intends to onrush a soul, He first
makes it poor; when He intends to
exalt a soul, He first makes it
humble; when He intends to save a
soul, He first makes it sensible of
its own miseries, wants and nothingness.—Flavel.
LEGITIME VICTORIOUS
In Several Battles Over the Northern Betels in Hayti.  The
War Nearly Ended
Ex-President Cleveland and Family
Bid the White House and Washington Farewell To-Day.
A New York paper recently sent
a young lady reporter, very pretty,
and poorly but deceutly clad, to
variouB churches, for several Sundays to see whether the poor were
welcome or not in such places. The
story of tho reporter as printed is
tothe effect that out of eleven
fashionable churches visited she was
cordially welcomed at. four, tolerated, but rather ooldl** treated at
two, given good seats at threo,
though regarded with apparent
curiosity, and told that there were
no scats at two. Sho was the only
poorly dressed person visible at any
of the churches.
Probably tho oldest timber in the
world, which has been subjected to
the use of man, is that found in the
ancient temple in Egypt in connection with stone-work, which is
known to be at least 4,000 years old,
This, the only wood used in the construction of tbe temple, is in the
form of ties, holding the end of one
stone to another. When the two
blocks were laid in place nn excavation about an inch deep was made
in each block, in which a tie shaped
like an hourglass was driven. It is
therefore very difficult to force any
stone from its position. The ties
appear to have been of the timarisk
or Shittim wood, of which the ark
was constructed.
The ladies are rather impatient
of the "law's delays" sometimes, and
on such occasions, woe to the offenders. A dispatch from Lincoln,
Neb., says: "Word has been received from Prosser, Adams county,
that a band of fifty prominent ladies
made a crusade on a saloon and
gambling-house at that plaoe recently, demolishing the entire establishment. The ladies attacked the
building when it was crowded, with
their aprons full of lumps of coal,
breaking every window-glass and
cleaning out the establishment.
The inmates scattered in every
direction, some of the loungers being
husbands of the women. Whiskey
und beor flowed freely in tho gutter.
Tho place has had a hard reputation
for selling liquor without a license."
There is much force to tho plea
that Canada needs not annexation
to make her a great nation. She
bas an area of 3,600,000 square
miles, a population of over 5,000,-
000, more than 9,000 miles of railway, and the greatest transcontinental lino in the world, from the
Atlantic to the Pacific. The annual
revenue of Canada is from $36,000,-
000 to $40,000,000. Its fisheries
are tbe finest in the world, and her
wheat belt is greater than that of
the east or wost. She has enormous
mineral resources; vast forests of
timber. He population will naturally double in every 30 years, ao
that in 60 years Canada will have
20,000,000 of people. In 1854 she
had barely 2,000,000. The United
States does not want Canada;
Canada hat the capacity to become
ah empire, and England would be a
fool to break her grip upon a colony
with so great a future.—Ortgtmlan.

burs of tho late cabinet and their families, also a-.number of congressmen und
other publio officers.
ItESt'LTS OF THB FAILURE.
Beading, Pa., Mar. 6.—The failure I
of the Reading Iron Works has caused
a great flurry among iron men. Last
niglit the rolling mills at Masmi and
Gibr.ilt.ar, in this county, tho greater

THE COAST COMPLAINS.
San Francisco, Mar. 6. — The
Chronicle this morning says: "The Paciiic coast has the right to a feeling
not only of regret but of displeasure
that so important a section of tbe
country should be wholly ignored by
President Harrison In making up hia
cabinet..
SHOT THE CONDUCTOR.
El Paso, Tm., Mar. 6.—William

DECLINING STOCKS.
Boston, Mar. tf.—Disquieting rumors from Paris regarding the great

line.

HEAVY FIGHTING.
Zanzibar, March tf.—The fighting
at Bogomayo on Sunday was severe.
The Arabs attaeked the German landing parties with fury, crowding to the
water's edge to meet them, and occupying the shore at every point whore a
landing could be effected. They were
driven off by the continued fire of the
men-of-war, and the sailors and
marines behaved with steadiness in
the face of the vastly superior numbers. The Arab loss was heavy.
They left a number of doad on the
shore and carried off a good many
mon. They fled as soon as their chief,
Bashaw, was wounded, The Germans recaptured two cannons which
bad been taken by (he natives in a
former fight. The Germans are
strongly entrenched at Bogomayo and
will hold the plaoe permanently to
prepare tho way for Lieut. WUsmann's
expedition.
DOMINION PAWAMENT.
Ottawa, March 5.—Hon. G. E.
Foster, Minister of Finance, delivered his inaugural speech this afternoon
and this evening. He spoke for nearly roar hoars.  The  gslleries were
crowded and there was a good attendance of members. His words throughout wore words of encouragement and
hope. He made many comparisons between the condition of Canada, the
United States and other colonies of
the empire and continental countries
generally as to the debt of these nations, their ability to repay it, their
resources and the energies of their
people and in nearly all oases he argued that this country compared favorably with any of them.
Ho opened with a complimentary
reference to tho men of acknowledged
ability and experience far greater
than his own, who hare preceded him
in office and asked for the general indulgence and sympathy of the house
in this his first experience. Canada
to-day, he said, hod every reason to
survey her past record with pride and
step forward into the future with the
confidence of peace, plenty, prosperity
and future greatness, Referring to
ihe estimates of the revenue of the
year 1887-8 ho gave the following
statements:       .
-ESTIKATB.   ACTUAL. WIT.
Customs 422,000,000 I22,105,PM $105,9%
Excise  0,450,00     0,071,483 378,514
MlBcel lane's.  7-60,000    7,781-050 181.0EO
Total, 83O.O00.O00 |35,C]6,402   $91,538
The estimated expenditure had been
937,000,000, and the actual expenditure 936,718,494, leaving tho difference of g281,50(i, to the good, so that
the actual deficit was only 9810,031
in place of the 91.000.000 that
was estimated. It must be remembered, howover, that though therejwas this
deficit thero had been set aside in the
sinking fund 91,930,077, so that if we
hsd not this sot off for the debt, there
would be a sulplus of 91,129,046.
The items of the expenditure were as
followB for the present year of 1888*
89. The estimated receipts had been
936,900,000 for the eight months, the
receipts amounting to 913,984,528 and
tbe amended estimates of receipts for
tbe year now stood, as follows: Customs, 925,533,971; Excise, 87,068,-
148; Miscellaneous, 97,999,180; Tutu],
938,001,294, or to be within the mark,
938,500,000. The expenditure would
amount, he estimated, to about $36,-
600,000, leaving a probable surplus nf
91, 900,000: The capital expenditure
for 1888-88 would be, estimated for
the four months to come; Railways
and Canals, 82,772,667; Public Works,
9385,700; Dominion Lands, 9100,000:
North West Rebellion, 9120,511;
Railway subsidies, 91,183,428; Redemption of debt, 93,094,386: a total
of 97,687, 586. He thought thia was
tho last rebellion expenditure that
would be heard of.
Comparing our debt with that of the
United States, which comparison was
made with a view to discrediting
the Canadian government, it showed
that the United States were in a more
favorable postion. The facta were
otherwise. A comparison could not be
fairly made, because the United States
had assumed no debts of tho provinces,
and paid a very small proportion of the
cost of (lie administration of justice.
In conclusion Mr. Foster announced
that he had no tariff changes to make
this yoke This statement created no
little surprise.
The probable income for 1889-90
was: customs, 923,900,000; excise, 97,*
125,000; miscellaneous, 98,150,000
Total, 939,175,000. The estimates
now before the house amount to 935,-
400,000, and tho supplementary estimates would not reach an exceedingly
high figure, so that the total probably
would hot be above 936,500,000.
With reference to the condition of
the debt, tho figures of the net debt
were in 1868. 975,728,641; in 1884,
9108,324,964. in 1889, 9234,581,358
From 1880 to 1888 the Canadian Pacific
Railway had been completed, and yel
the burden of the debt as represented
by the interest oharge was only increased by 14 cents per head between
these two years.

London, March 6.—A thunderbolt
in a summer sky could not hive ore*
ated more amazement and consternation than was caused at Windsor
Osstle by the news of Prinoe Alexander of Battenberg's mesalliance. The
queen ia annoyed beyond measure, ss
after having allowed her daughter and
granddaughter to contract morgsntlc
alliances with two of the Princes of
Battenberg ft is highly provoking that
a member of the family should marry
an actress. Luckily for Prince Alexander and his bride they are beyond
her reach. The mortification of the
Empress Frederick is for obvious reasons even more profound, as she had
constituted herself champion of Prince
Alexander during the whole of last
year, and now feels that she hu compromised herself. The troth about
the matter is that last August, when
tho squabbles about the Emperor
Frederick's diary was amicably settled,
tlie Emperor William consented that
his sister should marry Alexander on
condition that the couple undertook
to live quietly and privately at a distance from Berlin. It was then arranged that the marriage should take
place in the private chapel at Windsor
during the winter. Prince Alexander
and his bride were to have lived at
Crouberg, in Launus, where the Empress Frederiok had purchased a villa
for them, adjoining her own, about 3
months ago. The Emperor William
was informed of Alexander's flirtation
with Nellie Lesinger, and I hear that
after discussing the matter with his
brother, Prince Henry with Prince
Bismarck and with his eldest sister,
tbe hereditary prineeu of Saxe-Mein-
ingen, he sent bis mother in England
a peremptory letter forbidding the
marriage, llie emperor has absolute
power over his relatives, as hy Hohen-
zollern family statutes he can deprive
any prinoe or princes who disobeys
him ot any share in the family fortune.
The emperor later on explained to his
mother that Alex, was trifling with the
Prineeu Victoria, and acquainted, her
with the Leiaiuger story. Then there
came a right royal row at Osborne, u
both queen and empress were not only
lurious but-much ashamed of having
so seriously committed themselves in
the support of Alex. Poor Prince
Henry, who has been languishing in
the north wind of royal favor since
this explosion, was ordered to write a
letter" to Alexander, then at Darmstadt, requesting immediate and foil
explanation of the story, which the
queen snd empress could scarcely bring
themselves to credit, whereupon the
offender suddenly resigned hiscommis-
sioii in tho German army, a step which
was at once followed by his private
marriage which was not intimated in
any way to his relatives in Germany,
or to his patrons in England. The
royal family learned it from the newspapers. The fact is that while the
Prineeu Victoria of Prussia was very
fond of Prince Alexander be had no
special affection for her. but wu flattered by her preference and suoh a
match indicated the possibilities of __
great career in the future. When
Emperor William comes to England In
July the queen will make bim a G. 0,

collar and insignia, while the late emperor's garter is to be given to Prinoe
Henry of Prussia.

In the mafctor of tho proposed issue of street debentures by tlio

levied on the real property to bo improved by the streets, sidewalks,

Mr. G. R.   Parkin's  lecture  at
Vancouver,   Saturday    night,   on
national unity, or  imperial  federation, was an able  and   interesting
discourse.    Mr,  Parkin,   as    our
readers are aware, is  on  bis   way
from eastern Canada to  Australia
and Now Zealand, making a tour in
the interests of what he aptly calls
"national unity."   His object is to
ascertain and  stimulate   imperial
federation sentiment in tho  Antipodes, and it is evident that  in   his
intelligent enthusiasm and comprehensive graspof the subject, uo man is
better fitted for tho task which lias
boen assigned him.    It is evidently
a labor of love to Mr.  Parkin—love
for the old (lag, free British institutions, and for country.    This apostle
of national unity takes a most hope
ful,   and   withal   a   sensible    and
reasonable view of tlio case and the
prospects   for   bringing   about    a
federation, through mutual good will
and community  of   blood   and   of
interest,   of   the   world-wide   dominions and  colonies  of   Britain.
Arguments that ure commonly used
against   imperial   federation    Mr.
Parkin   ingeniously   nnd    forcibly
turns to account in   favor  of  his
argument,   The objection, that the
idea of  self-government   was   not
compatible with the government of
,ua empire so vast as the federated
empire would be, is met with   tlie
declaration, self-evident when once
stated, that,  by  means of modern
methods of locomotive and the transmission of intelligence,   the   world
has been re-created and created on a
smaller scale.    In other words, that
distant countries have been  made
near neighbors by the comparative
annihilation   of   timo   and   space
brought about by steam and electricity.    The argument,  that, with
so largo an empire it would be impossible to protect it   all   with   so
many assailable points of  attack,
Mr. Parkin knocks the wind out of
us follows ;   This, when examined,
proves to bo really a strong element
of defence, as by thoi peculiar geographical position ."of tho  empire,
and a complote  system  of   telegraphic connection, any point could
be   thoroughly   fortified,   defended
and supported, long before an enemy
could mass bis forces to tho attack.
The objection of the diversity of
interests of tho various colonies, the
lecturer disposed of us the strongest
appeal for national unity, as in this
dissimilarity    of    interests    nnd
resources was tho basis of advantageous and increasing commerce.
Other objections wpre   duly   pulverized and advantages enlarged on.
Mr. Perkin plainly shows that he
is a master of the   subject   and
do voted to   the   cause.    National
unity will got a big boost forward
as a result of his mission.
Harrison has been inducted into
the White House with the usual
eclat of such occasions, and Cleveland has got a prefix to his lute
proud title, which, however, denotes
a decrease of honor and emolument.
ft President  Harrison's inauguration
$ speech,   a  telegraphic summary of
which we published on Monday,wus
a.lengtliy document, but, like forma)
addresses generally, which a man is
expected to reel oil', did not contain
anything    particularly     striking.
Protection receives favorable notice,
which   is  only to be expeotod, considering that it was upon that issue
principally   that Harrison and the
Republicans won.   Blaine, of Maine,
whom   Harrison  appears  to have
been  unable  to  keep  out of  his
cabinet,  seems  to show   through
slightly in some of  the refercncc-i
to the foreign policy of the  United
States, particularly with respect to
the guarded but  significant  utterances about a.  -'shorter  waterway"
between - the  eastern and western
seaboards  of  tho nation.   Blaine[s
leanings in the matter of the United
States having exclusive and jealous
control  ctf any  interoceanic communication  via Panama  are well
known, bat it is hardly to  be  expected that Ureat  Britain,   whose
interests are also large in that connection, will acquiesce in the extreme application of tho Monroe
doctrine to Panama atl'iirs, a policy
which tho new secretary of state is
known to favor. Tho president's
address contains a pretty Btrong
hint that Samoa, or any other placo
whero tho American flag hus been
planted and American interests established, will not be suffered to revert to other hand?. Such a declaration is no more than is to be expected of any powerful and self-respecting nation. The determination
to improve tbe naval status of the
country is necessary, if it is to command that respect abroad which is
its duo. While a protectionist in
principle, Harrison sees the necessity, whicli is fairly forced upon him
by tlie large und augmenting surplus, to adjust the revenue laws " so
lhat no considerable annual surplus
will remain." Ho is confident that
this can be effected without breaking
down tho protective tarill or seriously injuring any domestic industry.
One hardly envies Harrison his job
in attempting, among tho inevitable
clamors and protests of monopolists
und trust agents, to apply the pruning hook to overgrown and luxuriant
protective duties.* He is likely to
make many enemies in so doing,
among the hosts that elected him.
Until it is proven to the contrary,
outsiders, ut any rate, will consider
Blaino the weak point in Harrison's
cabinet, and blame the president for
admitting him. It may be,
though, that Blaine, in n position of trust and responsibility,
will bu a slightly different man to
Blaine trying to "get there," and
that he may prudently tone down
some of his expressed ideas when it
comes to actual practice. There are
several matters in abeyance between
the States and Canada and the
former and Great Britain, Blaine,
in his position, may be a power for
good or evil. For the present, we
will trust that he may act prudently
and reasonably, and disappoint those
who are apprehensive as to his fitness for the important office which
he has secured,
Here's tho way they look at cor-
tain matters in the neighboring city
of Soattle. We don't profess to
know how things are running in this
city, but the following-words uttered
by Chief Justice Burke, of Seattle,
in the district court in that city, the
other day, might convey a hint or
suggest an idea to our own city
fathers, in the event of their seeing
the necessity nt any time for similar
action. Judge Burke said: "Tho
records of the court at this term
show conclusively that many of tho
saloons in this city are really gambling houses, where gambling of tho
vory worst sort is permitted to be
carried on and really made a part of
llie business of these saloons. The
most effective method of dealing
with such places is for the common
council promptly to revoke the
license of every saloon keeper who
is shown by tho record of this term
to have kept a gambling houso in his
saloon or to have permitted others
to carry on gambling there. When
the proof is made clear and conclusive as it has by the record of tliis
term of court that the saloon is another name for the gambling den, it
becomes the legal duty of the proper
authorities without delay in every
such case to revoke the saloon
license. In this way an effectivo
blow may be given to the gambling
carried on in the city ■ and in no
other way can it be effectually
checked. I would therefore call the
attention of the common council of
the city to this matter and suggest
that immediate steps be taken to
revoke the license of all such saloonkeepers and refuse them any license
in the future. This course would
strike at the root of the evil and do
more to repress gambling in this city
than anything else that can be done."

■ In every city thero are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of publio
enterprise, whose record for unflinching' integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, make them
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have we
in tho subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1862 and
has, through aU tbe vicissitudes of
twenty seven years' trade, maintained the even tenor of his way.
His transactions have increased
year by year, and the oircle of bis
customers and patrons gradually
widening and hts firm extending until he now controls a business un
exceUdd by any similar establishment iu British Columbia. His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this space is filled
with a complete and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockeryware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, house furnishings,
iron pipo and fittings. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and does overy variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
houso in the trade which carries a
more completo stock or whose facilities surpass those of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of time this gentleman
bas been in business and the success 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 for fair and honorable dealing,

THE BUTCH IN AFBIOA.
Some of the Queerest Customs of
tbe Thrifty Boers.
What a Hide-Awake Traveler Saw In the
Congo Free State-How Its Citizens Are
Victimised by Quack Doctors
•Tbelr Religious Fervor.
The traveler (t speak, writes a correspondent of the St. Jamcs} Gazette, of the
one who is supposed to understand Boer
speech and habits) arrives at a farm-house
in, say, the Orange Free Stato. A farmhouse may have one field ef forage and a
stone kraal; otherwise the farm Is open
country. He will not off saddle his horse
without receiving permission; thit; having
been asked for and granted, the farmer
leads him through tho half doors of the
main apartment. ' There is home-made furniture, numerous pink and whito paper
flowers, and painted on the walls vases of
fruit tike tbose seen depicted on the London
pavements. Tbe visitor will proceed to
' shake bands, commencing with tbe stout
vrauw and ending with the baby in arms.
Tbls -Is not the English " handshake," but
a resting of palm within palm. The coffee,
wbloh is made from sunrlso to sunset, is
then brought in In howls, tobacco pouches
are exchanged, and conversation, which
seldom varies, commences. The visitor and
the farmer answer or reply pretty muoh as
follows: "Tho veld Is green. The clouds
are heavy; there will bo a thunder-storm
to-morrow. I have a very fine red horse
running. Nachtraaal (communion) will be
next month. My vrauw has a cold. The
President is a flue man. Japie de Vllllers
(pronounced Vlljor and minus the prefix),
has had a ram born with five heads. Tho
English are thieves," The handshaking
process is thon repeated, the horse, fed and
rested, is brought round; tho traveler
mounts, smacks his sjambock, shows off his
stood and proceeds on his journey.
The farmers have trained ponies to a
special pace called a "tripplo," and a good
•'trippler-' is always prised. With this
pace no " porting•» of the saddle is required, and on a long journey the trippler
will arrive each.night without turning a
hair, whilo tho trotting horse, his companion, may ho done up. Distanco is reckoned by time—six mites to the hour. If
an Englishman near the hour of sunset
asks a Dutchman whore such a village lies
ho will be answered by a raised hand and " a
littlo way over that hill." You then ride
ten miles and sleep out in a thunder-storm,
perhaps. You reach the vlllago tho following midday. Superstition and foarof contagious diseases are great among this peoplo.
The Dutch aro accomplished herbalists,
doubtless obtaining the knowledgo of tho
Hottentots and Bushmen;.they have herb
brandies for colics and plants for sores*
Thoy ore of ten tho prey of quack doctors;
the more as genuine practitioners, who
bave to go long distances, charge heavily.
A Dutchman is satisfied with tho treatment
so long as his medical adviser brings to the
houso a quart bottle of physic; if he pre*
sent? him with a small vial ho doubts his
skill hnd si-nds for -.mother man. The dead
are buried on tho farms, and over thom
traveling masons orect mausoleums of
brick. Dutch women ure enormous in size,
good cooks In their stylo, gobhlo sweets and
cakes all day and* take littlo exorcise. But
now and then a Dutch wifs and hor daughters may he soon kraalling th i sheep at evening. A Boer likes his wife's company, and
will leave passeugcrs by his wagon stuck In
tho mud and half starved while be tracks
off fifty miles wltb another vehicle to pay
a visit to the vrauw. Feather beds are
greatly prized by this people; they generally carry their beds with thom on journeys.
Tho trekklngs of tho Boers are remark-
' able. Annually tho farm-house on tho "low
veld" Is shut up, and the sheep and cattle
aro taken scores of miles up to the "high
void" for mountain pastmc. Beside some
rushing stream tho wagons uro camped,
perhaps tents are pitched, and domestic life
goes on as usual. 'Fowls cluck among tho
wild grasses, and tho cows are milked beneath tho, shadows of mighty mountains.
Tho general belief in the excellence 61 Boer
shooting is no delusion.
Tho people are excessively fond of music
and dancing; concertina, harmonium and
Uddlc are tbelr delight. A withered Hottentot dwariwlllffjraw..). strain from the
sole of an old sh'oebtrung Vith Bino-y, and
men and maidens will vigorously danco to
it for hours. For dancing thero Ib no touching tho English Afrikander, and his mean
ures seem quite original. The Boers havo
a bad character for pilfering. Whon the
men and the women enter an up country
store they are allowed to carry off small
goods like sweets or ribbons, which thoy
unconsciously pay for In tho bill. The
farmers are not often rich in money, their
wool crops being mortgaged sometimes to
the stores for two seasons ahead. "Young
oloods" aro independent and wild. A smart
curveting horse and hat with white ostrich
plume usually denote this species. Whou
a Boor drinks ho Is an entire fool. In order
to keep a firm hand over tho young men
riding transport, tbo elders of the Free
State recently passed a bill prohibiting the
salo of liquor at wayside canteens, and
thereby lost a large revenue. Eowever,
there are smugglers.
Tbe Boers are great religious formalists;
and at certain times tbey and their families
ride Into the villages from great distances
to celebrate tbe Nacbtmaal, (night meul or
communion), their wagons loaded with
produce-presents for tho i-aruonu. At this
time business is brisk aod tho struts ure
like a fair. Yet, where unlives and land
are concerned, the Boor's i onslaiit violation
of tbe commandments does not, neod point-
Ing out. Tbe Boers ore hy no meaiis
modest, and tbelr family onaverutions are
at timet boisterously Indecent. Household
arrangements, savo on rich farms, are in
wiarily meager, and tho traveler must bo
prepared to sleep on the floor in the midst
of four or livo sisters and their three or
fourbrollieis. all grown up, whilo tho hoad
couple snoie on an elevated and ponderous
feather-bed in a cuttalncd corner of the

WHY Q1RLS CHEW GUM.
Information Gathered by u Enterprising
Chicago Ueporter.
In spite of tho manifold warnings ol physicians ; in spite of tho fact that the slmpo
of Cupid's bow is changed; and In spite or
all the contemptuous aad sarcastic remarks
which aro constantly appearing in the
papers, gum-chewing in this country is
rapidly on the increase.
Two-thirds of the girls, be they pretty or
otherwise, that one meets on the highways
of this city are either working their jaws
for all tliey are worth or have asmall lump
tuolied away in somo obscure corner of the
mouth and give it a gentle squeeze between the teeth when they are sure of
boing unobserved.
Gum-chewing ia less disgusting than
tobacco-chewing.
And if It becomes a natural habit, as It
seems likely to do, we may comfort ourselves that the gum-chewing American Is
far preferable to the snuff-dipping Mexican.
Women are told over and over again: "0,
if you could only see what tbo stuff Is made
of you wouldn't think of putting it in your
mouth."
And if cigarette-smokers could only see
what thete little paper-incased articles are
mado of they, too, would hesitate somewhat
before smoking them. Thus tbe woman
can give Lit for tat and come out of tho argument with Dying colors.
And gum-chewing is not as exclusively
confined to the female sox as is smoking to
the male, for many men use gum to help
still tho craving for tobacco, 'thus jumping
from the frying-pan into the fire, perhaps.
" True, gay young women aro lately becoming somewhat addicted to tho use of the
weed, claiming that if men havo the right
to pat their feeton tho mantel and make a
room blue with smoke whfc*hould they be
denied the privilege, since it has such a
soothing effect on the temper! And if
women can find tiny thing tbat has a salutary effect upon their tempers what folly to
deprive them of iti
-Why do women chew gum? You do not
know nnd even the ohewers themselves do
not seem to.
"0,1 chew because lean, I guess," said
one pert young mias upon being questioned
byaChicago Tribune reporter.
" And I because my mother tells me not
to," said another with a mischievous laugh.
"Ichow because I liko tbe taste and be*
cause every body else chews," said a third,
indifferently, and likewise answered they
all; the truth is, they really did not know
why they chewed and bad never thought to
ask themselves the question.
The history of chewing gum Is like tho
growth of all animal and vegetable life-one
of ovolution.
Children began to chew the exudations
from different tre'eB, from the peach, plum,
pine, spruce and sweet gum, thus putting it
into somebody's mind to make an artificial
gum.
It was first made Of beeswax, guttapercha and otber rubbery and sticky substances, which were perfectly pure and
harmless, and costly in preparation. But
throe years ago some inventive genius discovered tbat by boiling some of the baser
elements of petroleum and mixing in a
small amount of beeswax a gum similar to
tho moro expensive could bo produced
which was quite susceptible to flavors and
trilling in cost. By the use of scents and
largo quantities of sugar, whicli Is the
principal article used in the composition of
any gum, tho disagreeable taste and odor
of petroleum was entirely obliterated and a
saluble arttclo was produced. About the
same timo a gum called "Balsam Toft" was
produced, which also found a ready sale, particularly among children, and then "Paraf-
ilno," in all of its flavors and mixtures, had
Its day.
■•One variety of whito gum was for somo
timo quite extensively manufactured in
China. Tlmt country has a tree peculiar to
iiscir which possesses an attraction for an
insect with u queer Chinese name, which
one will neither attempt to write or pronounce. Numbers ot^them collect upon the
tree, and when they have departed lo pastures new branches are found to be literally
covered with a waxy deposit. By boiling
the branches tho wax is separated from
them, and when tbo water nhd twigs are
drawn off tho white deposit remains.
This is purified, sweetened, flavored,
cooled in cakes and a little fancy picture
pasted on top, and wo have the old white
gum which so many of us have chewed until our jaws ached. The sale oi this variety
wns enormous, but it has now been supplanted by newer kinds, as-the old rubber
wax,
Physicians differ considerably In their
views on tbe subject. An eminent physician from Obio declares that gum-chewing
seriously affects the eyesight, and that he
never fulls to detect tbe use of it by an examination of the eye. Another says that
tho muscles of tho jaw and face near the
temple aro enlarged and hardened and the
curve of the lips ts destroyed. And, on tho
other hand, doctors without number advise
ib use to cleanse tho teeth and aid digestion.
It Is quite the fad atthe present time to
chew spruce gum. ltat least Is pure from
all the adulterations which are now so common.
It has been computed by a statistician that
the people of the United States spend moro
thon ^1,500.000 every year for chewing-
gum. There is umanufactory at.Louisville,
Ky., that alono turns out five hundred thou*
sand boxes of six doien cakes each yearly,
which is distributed all over the world.
And when one stops to think of all tho
other manufactories of sums of different
varieties which are In full blast, selling as
much or more,1 than the one mentioned
above, wo aro astounded at what man's
iiws can do.
Not long a-ro a girl who had been chewing steadily ou a wager, to her surprise and
dismay found that her jaws wero set, and
she wns obliged to seek the aid of a physician immediately. Some of tho muscles
were paralyzed, and it took some trouble to
get her mouth open again. It usually takes
an equal amount of trouble to get tbe majority of women to elose their mouths, to be
sure; but In Bplteor the above and similar
warnings gum-chewing has evidently como
to stay, •   -.	
New Hypootk PbenoiMiMn, .
M. Licgois contributes to tho Bevw tta
Uypnoti.me an article describing a new
hpynotic phenomenon in tbo field of a "nog
utivo hallucination." This term describes
a stato in which tho suggestion that a eet*
tain person, a certain object in the Held ot
vision, remains unseen, has boen obeyed.
The state Is explained ns an annihilation of
tbo perception as it reaches consciousness.
Tho impression is received, but ignored
Havingathlrd party to suggest to one of
his subjects that he will bo Invisible to her,
it is found that ahe does not hear him, sec
htm, orfcol the prick of a pin When he
holds tbo pin, reacting normally to all other
persons. If, however, SI. Llegols calls out
Impersonally: "Camillo feels thirsty
Cumlllo will driuk a glass of water," she
hears and obeys the command; if tlmHurlv
told to stand at his sido, she does so; and ho
on for evory sense.. While she -does not
hear him, sho none the less really can hour
him. There is a sort of dual personality,
ono-half of which obeys the negative suggestion, whilo tho other is automsttcul|.-
roguluted, and obeys any suggestion not directly in conflict with a previous ono. Tho
further development of this study promises
Interesting results.

The first annual banquet of the Vancouver board of trado took place at the

The Weaker Won.
About 0 o'clock last night, near the
woolen mills, :i number of Siwnshes
and half-breeds had a dispute over a
canoe, which apparently wns claimed
by soveral different persons. The
dispute narrowed down till tho war
of words was restricted to n couple of
stout looking yuuug fellows. After
Bomo high words both men mado a
dash for thu canoo, which wns lying
close to tho rivor bank, and both got
aboard. A struggle for possession ensued, and the larger of the two men
seemed likely to como off victorious
aa he inaunged to throw hia opponent
overboard, but, unluckily lost his equilibrium and ho fell backwards into tho
water. Tho weakor Siwaali' w'ha aboard
again in nn instant and grasping the
paddle gavo the canoe a shove from
the bunk and pnddled in hot haste for
Brownsville, leaving his antagonist
completely foiled.
Terry Creek (.old Mine.
The latest report, dated tho 10th
inst, status that Mount Gem's Tunnel
ia now driven in 010 foet. The ancient
creek bud, wliichrorrmVttib Base of tho
tunnel, still retains tho feature of a
canyon, through which the pent-up
waters must have rushed with tremendous force, as evidenced by smooth,
polished bod and rim rock and the
small quantity of auriferous gravel thus
far encountered. Ten experienced
miners are working day and night
shifts, and besides these, other men
are constantly employed hauling timber and sawing out lumber. Tho result lust month wns 80 ounces gold
of the samo quality as the 00 ounces
previuualy received, whioh, assayed at
Solby's Smelting Works in San Fran-
cisco, yioldcd over $18.50 per aunco.
The pump and machinery intended for
tho company's shaft, distant six miles
from tho tunnel, is atill lying at Cran-
brook. With the beginning of spring
(iho present temperature at Cranbrook
is 12 degrees below zero) it will bo
moved and work commenced on this
portion of tho company's ground.
Col. Baker haa received intelligence
from tho mine on Perry Creek to tho
effect that 81,440 had been/taken out
of tho tunnel for the four weeks ending 17th February, 9400 of that sum
in the last week. Tho canyon has narrowed down, and bedrock is flat, and
tho evidences are that the ond of the
canyon is about 'reached. When once
rough bedrock is secured it is certain
that largo quantities of gold will be
taken out. Every day may bring news
of a bigBtrike.—Colonist.

He Ret Lout. ,
A comical story is told of a certain
real estate ngent in tuwn to tho effect
that he was so anxious to see how
sonic of tho 1o(b lay for which he had
prospective customors, that he tramped it out to the bush in tho neighboring of the east end park and got lost.
He spent hoars in tho rain trying to
find his way back. He knew he was
near Vancouver at any rate and consoled himself with the thought that
"bars" wero supposed to be scarce.
After trudging along for hours over
ground which, no doubt, will some day
be worth ae many dollars a front foot,
he succeeded, so tho report goes, in
climbing a lofty tree, from the highest
pinnacle of whioh he was able to din-
cry the battlements of tho oity. The
wind blew towards Vancouver. A
olever idea entered his head. He tore
his real estate map into the smallest
of pieces and scattered them to the
breeze? Tho pieces felt in a snow-
white line on tho branches of tho trees
in the direction of the oity. Keep*
ing clou to those giants of the forest,
which were bespattered with the erstwhile maps of Vancouver, he succeeded in tracing his way to the boundary,
thence to the cleared ground, and at
last to the— no, not the steet-ears, as
we were about to say, but to tho heart
of tho city, whero a dry suit of clothes,
a now map, and cosy dinner, soon
mado him about tho happiest looking
mortal in existence. He hu gained
one advantage. He knows exactly
now how thoio lots he went out to
look at, lie, and can tell tho inquirer
just what purpose they nro good for—
