Tho saleslady nnd the cash-gentleman are familinr, but an English
contemporary out-runs tliem with
tlie headline. "A Lady Thief's
Strange Careers"
It is proposed to erect on tho top
of tho 'kifi'el Tower, in Paris, a
wonderful orchestra consisting of
gigantic jEolian harps, trumpets
nnd tom-toms, which will bo operated by the wind, which nttains considerable velocity nt that extraordinary altitude—1,000 foet.
According to a fashion paper, tho
new wrinkle in wedding tours is the
"Secret Honeymoon." Neither
bride nor groom knows boforo the
ceremony whore they are to pass tho
first delightful month of marriage,
as tlie best man nrra'ngea the programme according to his views, and
gives it to the groom hs he enters
tlie carriage. Thon tho happy pair,
ns the carriage whirls off, tear open
the envelope, and for tho first time
learn their destination, route, etc.
There is said to be a fascinating
uncertainty about   this new   plan.
A polijio burglar has made his
appearance in one of tho smalt towns
surrounding T3oston. After removing all the por'aMo articles of value
from the residences in which he
plied his trade, lie proved himself n
perfect gentleman by leaving in
each case the following unique note:
"I regret to say that the high cost
of living and my failure to receive
certain sums which I had confidently expected, have put me under the
painful necessity of permanently
removing your silverware. With
all due apology and wishing you the
compliments of the season, 1 am
respectfully yours,"
Wo ure compelled to apologize to
our subscribers for the typographical
appearance of the present issue.
Owing to the snow blockade a keg of
ink which we ordered weeks ngo
failed to reach us, and rather than
miss an issue we compounded a substitute. We don't seem to havo hit
the right proportions, or elso molasses and lampblack are not the
proper substitutes. As it will be
impossible for subscribers to make
out nny of tho rending matter, we
will solace thom with the f-tatement-
that thero is little or nothing worth
reading. Wc hadn't-much time to
giVo'toliie paper last week', and it
isjusfc us well that we hadn't. Tt
would havo been time thrown away,

Kb fewer than 40 Icelanders wore
married in Winnipeg laBt year, or
13 per cent, of the total number of
persons who assumed the yoke
matrimonial, says un exchange. The
clergyman who performed the greatest number of marriages, Rev. Mr.
Bjarson, is un Icelander. The facts
show either that the Icelanders ure
a numerous population in and around
the capital of Manitoba, or aro exceptionally enterprising in matrimonial adventures. Many of tho
marriages aro between Icelanders
nnd English people, and the readiness with whioh such unions take
place suggests that, these sturdy
Norse settlers, dospito the strong
national traits their interesting
history and surroundings have
induced amongst them, are likely to
be speedily assimilated by the
Canadians.
It is said that Queen Victoria is
very fond of fresh air, that she is in
the habit of sleeping with open windows oven in the dead of winter,
and that during the daytime her
apartments at Windsor Castle are
so cold that her attendants and
visitors are almost frozen. The
Empress Maria Theresa of Austria
was more peculiar in this respect.
Her apartments wore very rarely
heated. She exposed herself to
draughts without falling a victim to
rheumatism. Her writing table,
even in winter, was close to the open
window, und the falling snow often
drifted into tho apartment and fell
on tho paper on which she wrote.
It frequently happened that the
hands of the hairdresser were partly frozen while attending to her
Majesty's coiffure, and that tho
ladies surrounding her august person
literally trembled with cold.
The following is given by r\ cotemporary journal as "fifteen great mistakes": It is a great mistake to set
up our own standard of right and
wrong, and judge people accordingly.
It is a great mistake to measure the
enjoyment of others by our own; to
expoct uniformity of opinion in this
world; to look for judgment and experience in youth; to endeavor to
mold all dispostions alike; not to
yield to immaterial trifles; to look
for perfection in our own actions; to
worry ourselves and others with that
which cannot bo remedied; not to
alleviate all that needs alleviation,
as far as lios in our power; not to
make allowances for tho infirmitios
of others; to consider everything impossible whioh wo cannot perform;
to believe only what our finite
minds can grasp; to expect to bo able
to understand everything, But the
greatest of all mistakes is to live
only for.timo, when any moment
may launch us into eternity.

Large Army.
Italy Pleased with the New French
Ministry and Hopes for Renewed Friendly Relations.
Bismarck Hays the Peace of a Century with the States Will
Not be Broken.
A  COMING WAU.
London, Feb. 25.—A rumor comes
from the trans-Caspian frontier to the
effect thut the Bokhara troops, under
the command of the amour, nre moving
toward tho Afghan frontier. Thia is
not the only disquieting report thut
comes from that region, and suggests
tho overturning of the present peaceful
and satisfactory regime in that uuuntry.
Tho character of the people lends
strong probability to such reports, but
little attention is paid to them in St.
Petersburg, where the general belief
prevails tnat no disturbance of the
present peaceful state of affairs is going
to take place. The only exception to
this view is a small military section
which is anxious to strike a decisive
blow in Afghanistan, at what is considered by them to be an opportune
moment for such steps.
ITALY IS   PLEASED.
Pahib, Feb. 25.—The new French
cabinet, has produced greater satisfaction iu Italy than anywhere elso. The
hope is entertained thnt the two countries may be better friends now than
they have been for some timo past.
M. Terard, the premier, is known to
be an advocate of the re-establishment
of close commercial relations with
Italy, and IM. Benvier also was tho
negotiator of the abortive treaty of
1887. Since commercial relations wore
broken off Italy has labored under
serious economic difficulties, and would
cladly renew cordial relations with
France Bhould tho new French cabinet
survive and assure by its existence a
fair measure of success for renewed
negotiations. The danger to which
the cabinet is directly exposed is M.
Andrew's attack upon it on tho subject
uf Tonquin, which is now put uft* until
next Thursday, If M. Tirard and lm
colleagues should weather this safely a
period of repose is likely to follow.
This would allow time and opportunity
for tentative steps, looking to the reopening of commercial treaty negotiations botween France and Italy, for
which the press and public of both
countries appear to be thoroughly disposed,
NO KEAIt OF WAR,
Berlin, Feb; 25.—Prince Bismarck,
at a dinner given to the members of
thu lower Prussian diet, said he regarded it as an utter impossibility tlmt
the Samoan question should have tho
effect of interrupting the friendly relations between Germany and America,
which had existed fur a century, Tho
geographical situation of Samoa und
tho imperfection of telegraphic communication rendered it impossible for
him to bo responsible for all acts of
Gormin ngents in tho Pacific, but tho
parties in dispute wero nctuatcd by
thu best spirit, and no doubt Germany's commercial interests would not
materially suffer.
A TRUE  FHENCHMAN.
Paris, Feb, 25.—General Boulanger
says tho statement of policy of tho new
the new ministry presented to the
chamber on Saturday is like the unmeaning murmur of a dying man. Ho
ridiculed of its taking exceptional measures against him, for all he does is
legal aud open. He can now fold his
arms, forthe ministers will mnke his
success sure. -

TUB NEW  MINISTRY.
Paris. Fob. 23.— Tho declaration
of tho new ministry was read in ihe
suuato and chmiit-er of deputies to day.
It stuloB thnt tho great tasks of tho
government will bo to secure u voto
for the budget for J SOO and to, nsnuio
the success of the exhibition, Tho
ministerial address also expresses the
hope that thu discussion of thu military laws will be satisfactorily ciiiclul-
od. It is the imperative duty of the
ministry, it declarus, to maintain reap, ct for the republic by contracting
and, if necessary, repressing Iho factious seeking adventure.
WILL FIX COREA.
London, Fob. 23.—Au attache of
the British foroigit ollico states that information has reached London that
after tho marriage festivities of tho
emperor of China aro over, the Chineso
government purposes taking a short
method to settle tho difficulties in
Corea. Tho king will bo deposod and
the country put under a Chinese viceroy, the namo of tho Marquis Tsing,
tho late minister to Great Britain,
being mentioned for the post, Tho
treaty botween China nnd Japan,
signed in 1885, provided thnt neither
country should send armed forces into
Corea without the consent of the other,
and, thereforo, tho Japanese's consont
will be necessary in ordor to carry out
suoh n policy. It is quite certain that
tho present situation in Corea is excessively galling to China, und that
sho will seek every means to put down
the intrigues which are directed toward
obtaining for tho king a position of
completo independence. Encouraged
by his American prime minister, Judge
Denny, he denies that he owes any
duty to China beyond that of a mere
friendly neighbor. Tho Chinese claim
that tho king is their vassal, and that
it is a country protected by the dragon
throne, tnd it seems probable thnt the
controversy will have a violent ending
before long.
OTTAWA   NOTESj.
Ottawa, Feb. 23.—Severol members of the cabinet have beon invited
to attend tbe lirst annual banquet of
tho Vancouver board of trade.
The resolution adopted at the mass
mooting of tho Orangemen hero last
niglit continues to bo the leading topic
of conversation. Mr. Barron, M. P.,
dqapite the protests from liberal fellow members will bring up the Jesuits
compensation question in tho linuso in
tliu hope of drabarrasiiig tlio gorern-
meni. Ha represents an Orange constituency.
Mr. Barnard, M. P„ ia laid up wi h
a soro foot.   It is nothing serious,
A bill to do away with tlio present
expensive system of inspection of timber and lumber will bu introduced ou
Monday. The Dominion will bo divided into districls, each io have one
chief inspector and as many inspectors
or cullers as the district may require.
Also a board of examiners will be appointed. AU the present 'officials aro
eligible for renppointiuotit. Tho chief
inspector will bo paid a ^Ofify nnd tho
others by fecB.
Sir Richard Cartwright last night
announced that an important resolution
is to be proposed in the house of commons on Tueadsy. It concerns the
trade relation with tlio United States.
Ho will arraign tho government on its
United Stabs trade policy and thoir
failure to tako advantage oftho favor-

.Unndny Evening. Feb. 25. lDHO.
Donald Truth is n neat, sprightly,
nntl fearless little sheet, published
nt the mountain town of thnt name.
Constant breathing of tho mountain
air lends a vivacious effervescence
to its remarks. Mountain uir is a
good thing, but there is such u thing
as getting too much of it good thing.
Our little cotemporary of the peaks
occassionully inflates its small chest
with the ctheriril ozone to such un
extent tlmt the vivacious effervescence abovo merges into a top-lofty
lightheadedness—a sensation agreeable enough, perhaps, to the affected
individual,but tinging his utterances
and actions with n certain irresponsibility and a luck of balance. Iu
this mood, evidently, our littlo
cotem. tackles Kev. Mr. Thomson,
of Vancouver, and nlso Tin: Columbian, incidentally, on the Sunday
newspaper question. Its remarks
about Mr. Thomson show such n
misconception of und hostility to tho
work of the Christian ministry, thut
wo are not surprised at its conclusions on the whole subject. We
infer that our cotemporary doesn't
"cure a rap" about the preachers or
Sabbath observance either. It
would be more honest, however, to
sny so, instead of attempting to
make out that Sunday papers are
•consistent with Sabbath observance,
and branding n conscientious clergyman who thinks and expresses himself differently as "a bigoted man
without brains." Truth's remarks
about this paper we will pass over,
as they nre principally contradictions of what wo had to say recently
on the subject of Sunday papers,
and nothing will bo gained by reiteration in this case.
What u lion Stanley will be,
should ho ever emerge from the
African jungles which have swallowed him up so long, into the
circle of civilization once more. An
admiring world would elevate him
on their shoulduis and exclaim,
"The lost is found ; the dead is alive
again." For lost, strayed, stolen,
murdered, he has been time and
again since taking a bender into the
"dark continent" on this lust occasion. Stanley the invinoiWe>though,
always appears to "bob up serenely"
just when the gloomiest apprehensions concerning him have gained
credence. The latest about Stanley
Africanus, according to the wires,
is that he has had a set-to with the
natives near Lake Albert Nyanza,
nnd has come off victorious, of
course. This may be a fact, but it
is well known that Stanley's policy
in ail his African expeditions bas
been to avoid, if possible, forcible-
collisions with the natives, and
bloodshed. This is a good policy :
but it is quite certain that, if Stanley followed one part of the "immortal William's" advice—"Beware
of entrance to a quarrel" lie would
not be forgetful of its completion—
"but being in, bear it that the opposed may beware of thee"—and it
is not at ali astonishing to hear
about the undaunted explorer thrashing tho natives, or even contemplating tho re-capture of Khartoum
and the rescue of the Soudan from
the Mahdi—an intention which lute
despatches make Lieuteuaiit Baert,
who has lately arrived at Brussels
from Stanley's Falls, attribute to
Stanley. The ci vilized world, although glad to hear that its worst
fears concerning Stanley und Emin
Bey have not yet been realized,
must soon cease to place much
value upon tho various and contradictory reports about the welfare or
fate of these bravo men, and will
anxiously await some definite and,
from its nature, incontrovertible, information before preparing either to
lament or hurrah.
south poles   of  all  the  hoavenly
bodies that are near enough to   permit their surfaces to be   accurately
studied.    It is   claimed   that   the
spots on the sun tend to prove   the
rule,  because   they   extend   their
sphere of activity 40 degrees nortii
of the solar equator und  only   30
south of it.    There arc said   to   be
remarkable differences, too, between
the north pole and the   south   pole
of tho moon.   In tho vicinity of the
north pole arc high ranges of mountains, considerably inferior in height
to the peaks about the  soutli   polo,
some of which arc so elevated   that
they never seem to lose the light of
the sun, whose rays never penetrate
tho valleys that lie about their feet.
It is about tho soutli jiolo   of the
moon, according to tho astronomers,
that aro accumulated theso   craters
which constitute tho most   marked
peculiarity of its surface.   If there
is a comparison to bo made between
the earth and the moon as   respects
its hemispheres, its  southern   half
resembles moro nearly the northern
half of our planet.     Our   world   is
what is called in tho   languago   of
tlie scientists   an   oblate   spheroid,
flattened at the poles und having an
equatorial diameter greater by a fow
miles than its polar diamoter.    It
is this peculiarity of form, it is said,
that causes it to retain its   position
in relation to the sun, to which  wo
owe the performance of our'physical
conditions,thnt is thu regular change
of seasons.    Were the poles to   pro-
sent themselves to the sun at a different angle there would be a change
of seasons that would render certain
parts of   the   globe   uninhabitable.
There are reasons   to   suppose that
the flatness of the poles is not   precisely the samo at   both   of   them.
About the north pole thero is much
moro land  than  about   the   south
pole.     The   northern   hemisphere
weighing much more than the southern   hemisphere   would   naturally
cause this part of the globe to  assume some modification of form and
present different curves und outlines.
In a recent eclipse of the moon  the
shadow of the earth as seen on that
body presented a wavy   edgu  that
some astronomers presumed   to  bo
the shadow of the Andes, and   they
inferred, perhaps too   hastily,  that
instantaneous   photography   might
yet reveal the outlines of the southern polar region with such distinctness that the difference of the curve
would clearly prove   the supposed
difference in tho flatness of tho two
poles.   This is taken to show   conclusively that many inferences might
be drawn in regard to tho presumed
instability of the earth and the possibility of some terrible catastrophe
at no distant epoch.   If magnetism,
snys a recent, writer dn the subject,
is tbo force not alone in the   world,
but in the universe, that many suppose ; if it is this potent power that
raises   mountains  aud   continents,
that causes   volcanoes   and   earthquakes, that preserves or   destroys
the equilibrium of worlds, thnt keeps
this orb turning on   its   axis,   presenting century after  contury   tho
same angle to the suu; that   gives
us regularity of  seasons   and  may
annihilate us at any   moment,   the
perfect knowledge of its  phenomenon is interesting, even fascinating,
though wc can do nothing whatever
to avert the fatal consequences that
it may cause.    We know   a  great
deal about the phenomena of   magnetism in tho northern   hemisphere
owing to the greater ease with which
observations are made on tho   land.
Of those phenomena in the southern
hemisphere we  know   very   little,
owing to the extent of  ocean   and
the barriers that  interpose to  prevent a near approach to  tho south
pole,   It is urged that tho   climate
of the southern hemisphere is more
agreeable than that of tlio northern,
a peculiarity that is supposed to extend to the south pole.    The   summer is short but   quick   in   action,
though the heat is   not   excessive,
the fact being that there is so much
water tho icy fetters aro moro easily
unlocked, nud   the  ocean   covered
with floating ice, usually   in   small
fragments.    There do not seom   to
bo, as on the  coast  of  Greenland,
great glaciers or   reservoirs,   from
which huge icebergs   are  detached
and borne away   for   thousands   of
miles by winds and ocean currents.
Tho results of nn expedition, or expeditions, to the south pole, if such
should bo successful, cannnot fail to
be as interesting, not only  to  tho
scientific, but the general public, as
such an event with respect  to  the
much talked of, but hitherto undiscovered, north pole.
Children Cryfor Pitcher's Castor!
Tho  north  polo   has   heretofore
been tho chief cynosure for the curious and scientific explorers of  the
globe, and   although   tho   interest
with regard   to  that  icc-guarded,
mythical   point  within the Arctic
circle cannot be said to have abated,
its rival, tho south   pole,   promises
to usurp a share of scientific  attention ond homage    It is stated that
two or three exploratory expeditions
to the south polo are talked   of   in
Europe and one is said to bo quietly
preparing   in    America,     Suience
Lopes to olucidato vurious mysteries
with respect to tho Antarctic region,
suoh as tho existence of a great continent in that vicinity, which is not
deemed probable, the magnetic conditions about tho   south   pole,   the
relative flatness of tho earth at that
point, with a variety of othor things
©f real or imaginary scicntifio interest.   The point aimed at, and whore
the exploration will probably commence is Viotoria Land,  so  called,
which is nearly duo south of New
Zealand.   The nearest point of departure for these unknown regions
Is the southern part of tho island of
Tasmania.   Astronomers have discovered not  only   that there  are
singular   differences   between   the
north pole of tbe earth and the south
pole, bnt that  there exist  similar

In every city there are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in nil matters of public
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 the subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1862 and
has, through all the vicissitudes of
twenty seven years' trade, maintained tho even tenor of his way.
His transactions have increased
year by year, and tho circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widening and his firm extending until ho now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in British Oolumbia. 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,
crockery Ware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, house furnishings,
iron pipe and fittings. This houso
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and does every variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
house in the trado which carries a
more complete stock or whoso facilities surpass those of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of time this gentleman
has been in business nnd the sue-,
cess he lifts attained are better
recommendations than tho loudest
praise wo 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.

dmhUW THE  PINES.
'■ Far back in days of childhood stood a grove of
stately pines,
The Holds spread green around them and tholr
shadowy outlines
Readied up into the sky so far that I believed
it true
That nngels, on thoir upstretched arms, passed
thro' the Heavenly blue.
And whon the night winds murmured ln tbelr
branches sweet and low,
I listened thro' the dark aud said: "Yos, angels'harps, I know;
Good angels, who will give mo aU I want If I
am kind,"
For childhood's oyes look far aad wide, but
childhood's faith is blind.
And as the angel music filled my soul with
visions bright,
I lay upon my pillow ln a dream of rapt delight,
Whore ntJblc knights and maidens moved ln an
enchanted land
Ot palaces and gardens fair, and cnstlei tall
and grand.
' Sweet angels, grunt mo but two gifts, and I'll
bo good, I pray:
A palace for my home, and let my mother live
alwayj
My mother dear, so beautiful, that like to you
sho seems,
Ob, let ber livo forever I" thus I whispered Jn
my dreams.
No palaces aro mine, yet round me woods and
mountains stand,
Arrayed in all tha splendor ot tbo wondrous
fairy-land,
And o'er thn grave beneath the pines the birds
sing all tbo day,
And Faith's bright angel tells me that my
mother lives' alway.
-ZtMla Cocke, in iT. Y. OrapMc.
PARDON'S GOOD LUCK
Row Sho Proposed For and Se-
ourod a Partner.
Philosophers say that there is no such
thing aa luck. Aea Darwin thought differently.
"My luck, exactly," said ho, despairingly. "I might havo kuown just how it would
bo."
Ho sat on the old stono porch, staring out
toward tho sunset, his chair tipped back on
its two hind logs, his hands thrust aimlessly into his trousers pockets.
It was cold enough to justify the fire of
beech logs that was blazing on the hearth
in the room Inside, where Pardon was tacking up tho red moreen curtains that sho
had just sponged and mended neatly; but
it was not an easy thing for Mr. Darwin
to relinquish tho babit of out-door lounging that bad clung to him all tho summer
through.
11 What la it, father!" Baid Pardon, coming briskly to tho door with a tack hammer in ono hand and a paper of tacks in
tbe other.
11 Jonos has just gone by," said Ur. Darwin. "He says the old cow has got out on
tho railroad track again."
Pardon bit hor rod under lip.
"I told you sho would, father," said shi,
-'if you didn't havo thoso bars repaired."
"And she's got run ovor," dolefully added
Darwin. "I'm suro I don't know what
we're going to do without a cow. Wo'vo
always put a lot of dependence on our milk.
But I might havo expected it. Luck has
been sheer against mo ever sinco John
James died. A roan with n house full of
gals can't expect to make no headway in
the world."
Pardon colored up.
" You didn't oxpeet your girls Jo mend
the bars, did you, father ("asked sho, a littlo
bitterly.
" I was calculatin1 to speak to Tim Far-.
son;, about getiin' anew pair o'posts put
up," sighed the farmer.
■'Wouldn't it have been a safer way to
put them up yourself, father!"
'•I ain't as young as I used to be," said
Darwin, evasively. " And tho rheumatics
is twistin- mc powerful theso first cool
days."
" Then," said Pardon, with a certain touch
of daughterly authority in her voice, "you
should come into tho houso and not sit
thero, getting chilled through, and thon find
fault with your luckl"
Mv. Darwin slowly roso and shuffled into
the bright littlo keeping room, whero Pardon had spread a neatly-braided rug before
the fire, and placed a broken-spouted
pitcher of yellow golden-rod on the table.
Sbe looked after him with a sigh, half of
impatience, half regret,
"I wish John James bad lived 1" said Mr.
Darwin, feebly.
"So do I," assented Pardon.
*" Ain't supper most ready 1"  said the
farmer, looking discontentedly around.
"It will be in a minute," said Pardon. "I
bad to split the kindling myself for tho
kitchen firo, nnd Fanny has run to Mrs.
Merrill's for a littlo meal to mako somo hot
■ corn bread."
At tho same moment Fanny roturned-a
slight, overgrown girt or fourteen—brcath-
lesB with tlio basic sho has mado.
"Mrs. Morritt is very sorry," said she,
"but sho hasn't any cornmeal In tho house."
_.   "That's enough," said Pardon,  glowing
H scarlet to tho roots of bar bait'.   "I don't
blame her for gotting tired of lending things
tousl"   .
'  "But," added Fanny, "sho sends a pail of
| Graham flour to make gems. Indeed, indeed, Pardon, she's as kind as she can be I"
Pardon laughed hysterically.
"I'm getting as hard nnd bitter as a sour
persimmon," said sho. "Yes, I'm very glad
of the Graham Hour. Father can't make out
his supper without something hot for a rel-
I' isb. Perhaps some day we can return Mrs.
■ Merritt's kindnesses. But oh, Fanny, have
you heard I Tho red cow got out of the
pasture this afternoon and is killed on the
track."
Fanny burst into tears.
' "Old Pinky!" she exclaimed. "Ii there no
cad to our bad luck!"
Pardon stamped her pretty, ill-shod foot
impatiently on the floor.
**Luckl" sho repeated. "Don't use that
dreadful word I I believe father would bo a
better and happier man to-day If it wasn't
.in tbo dictionary at all. There Isn't any
such thing as luck. It's all bod management, sblftlessness—the habit of putting
every thing off until tfadnast moment,"
And then sbe cried, too, poor little overburdened Pardon.
Sho was tall and slender, with large, glittering haiel eyes, red-brown hair and ono
of those delicate complexions where tbo sun
lays Its touch In tho shape of here and there
a cluster of f rookies.
Fanny was dark, with Spanish eyes,
fringed with long lashes, and hair as blook
und lustrous as jet. Whatovor elso f ato had
denied tbe Darwin girls, it had boen gen-
crouB to tbem in tho matter of personal attributes.
They made their frugal supper of Graham
gems, a very little butter, tho weakest
browing of tea, and no milk at all, and then
Pardon built up tho fire, got her father tho
last week's nowspaper, which good Mrs.
Morritt had sont ovor wlththo Graham
(lour, nnd then sat down in tbe book kitchen
with Fanny to slice up a few peaches for
•Orying. ■
■' - >r wo bave got to look after things
ver, close this winter," sho* said. "Father
seem* to have no energy at all since John
James died, I am afraid it will end In uw
farm being sold to clear oft the mortgage"
Fanny opened hor big, black eyes,
" But we must live somewbero, Pardon,"
said she.
"You and 1 can go out to service," said
Pardon. "As for father, there Is the poor-
house."
Funny uttered a wall of dospalr.
" No, no, dear; don't look so distressed,"
said tho older sister, repenting tho rashness of her speech. "I don't really moan It,
I'm cross, that Is ail. It's hard doing the
work of hired man, servant girl nnd housekeeper nil In one. I shall feel hotter tomorrow after I've had a night's sloop, I
haven't got to got up early nnd milk poor
old Pink any moro."
And onco again tho sisters mingled their
tears,
"If father had only mended thoso bars,"
said Fanny.  "It was so unlucky-"
But Pardon put her hand over hor sister's lips,
" Not that word, Fanny," said rte. "Ro-
membor it's forbidden.11
The two girls were washing up Ibe break-
fast dishos tho next day in tho temporary!
absence of Mr. Darwin, who bod strolled oft
toward the post-office to see if the mail was
in, when Squire Etting crossed the threshold.
"Father ain't to hum, eh!'.' said be.
"Well, I reckon I can talk things over just
as well with you, Pardon."
"What things!" said Pardon, distrustfully-
" That thoro skatin' rink, down by tho
lake," said Mr. Etting, "that John Jamos
built It's goin' to be a good bard winter if
there's any truth in signs, and I've a notion
to buy tho concern, just as it stands, und
run the rink myself. The land belonged to
your mother's estate, and I s'posoyouand
the Kill hero bave tho right to sell it."
" Yes," said Pardon, her oyes flxed calmly on the Squire's wooden visage. "What
will you givo for It!"
"Wul, it ain't wutli so dreadful much,"
said tlio squire, evasively- "Soy a hundred dollars for the building and.two acres
o' land."
Pnrdou shook hor head.
" I won't sell it for that," said sho, decidedly.
" I dunno what you want to keep it for,"
said llie squire, irritably. "Your father
ho ain't got tho 'go* to run a skating
rink."
"I know that," said Pardon, firmly,
"but I don't intend to bo swindled, nil the
same."
The squire stamped out or tho room in a
rage.
" Then drive a bettor bargain with somebody else, if you can," Bald ho, viciously.
"Pnrilon, Pardon!" whispered Funny,
close to her elbow, "call him back! A
hundred dollars is a great—great sum of
money]"
"No," said Pardon. " I will not call him
back.  Lot mo think!"
"But what will father say!"
■•■Fitilior need never know, Fanny. It It
as Squiro'Etting says, tho land in all Hint is
left of our poor mother's property. It is
ours to sell or to keep, as wo please. The
lumber nlono for that- poor building cost
John James nearly ono hundred dollars.
Tho squire thinks he can safely cheat us,
because wo aro only women. But ho will
find himself mistaken."
She put on lior green gingham sun-bonnet
that afternoon and went over to tho Morritt farm. Joel Morritt was just driving
through the big gates with a load of wood.
- "I'm so sorry," said Joel, courteously
lifting his cap. "Mothor lias gono over to
aquilting-beoat Mrs. Dikes'. Won't you
step in and rest!"
Pardon took off ber green sun-bonnet and
fanned herself with it. Her cheeks wero
pink; her lovely hazel eyes sparkled.
" But it isn't your mother I came to see,
Joel," said sho. "I wanted to speak to
you!"
Joel jumped off tbe load, threw the reins
on old Sorrel's back, and camo up to her,
with a countenance of somo surprise.
" Mc!" he repeated, reddening a little.
For of all created beings ho thought Pardon Darwin the moat beautiful und winning.
" Yes," said Pardon, still deeply absorbed
in hor own plans snd ideas. "How would
you liko, Joel, to go into partnership with
mo?"
" With you, Pardon!"
', Ho caught his breath.
■■"Yes," frankly spoke the girl. "Of alt
our neighbors I think you arc the most honest aud reliable. I've known you over sinco
wo woro ehildron together, and—"
"Say not another word, Pardon!" joyously crled.tho young man, taking both her
hands in his, while His whole faco grew radiant. "Ob, you don't know how proud,
how happy you mako me! For I've loved
you this long time, Pardon, only I never
dared to toll you,, so; and mother will bo so
glad to call you daughter. Givo mo a kiss,
Pardon—my littlo shrinking love-- ju.u one
kiss, so that I may bo suro I'm tiui divymi*
ing!"
But to bis dismay Pardon strug^cil io freo
herself and began to cry impetuously,
"I—I don't know what you mean!'1 said
she.  " Let mo go, Jool Merritt!"
" But, Pardon, you said yourself-"
"It was tho skating-rink Uut pour John
Jamos built on Deep lake!" faltered Pardon, on the vorgft of new tears. ■-1 -1
wanted you to help mo fit it up and.maniigre
it this winter. I never dreamed of asking
youto-to Oh, Jool, what must you have
thought of mo!"
" Then you didn't moan It after all!" said
Jool, dropping his arms to bis sides and
standing with ablank face beforo hor. "You
don't caro forme!"
Pardon stood silent a moment, twisting
hor apron strings, while tbo soft glow still
burned on her checks.
A sudden light flashed Into Joel's sunburned faco.
"My own lovcl'-ho cried out, valiantly,
"I'll lake tlio skating-rink, but you've got
to bo thrown into tho bargain, too! Stiy
j-ou'11 consent, PardonI"
And at ull events Pardon did not refuse.
" Eh 1" snid Asa Darwin, when tho fncts
of tho enso became patent to his rather
dense understanding," young Merrit going
to finish np tbo rink beforo frost come! And
engaged to our Pardon, too! Well, I declare, that is a piece of luck I"
And this timo Pardon took no exceptions
to tho obnoxious word.— Saturday Night,
REMARKABLE   LUCK.

I was always a lucky chap, snys a writer
hi tho Harvard Lampoon. When I was
about fivo years old X fell out of a trco and
broke my leg, but ovory ouo.said 1 was
mighty lucky not to have broken my neck.
Then, a year or two later, I cut myself
badly just over ono eye, but tho doctor taid
I was very lucky not to havo had that cut
an inch lower down. Tbou I had scarlet
fever nnd almost died, but luckily pulled
through. Twice 1 fell overboard from a
boat, but was luckily rescued. Wbcu I
came to college l had six conditions, but my
teacher told me I was vory lucky to get iu
ut all. Thero was no doubt about it 1 wns
always lucky.
Ono day last weok I happened luckily to
bo walking along ln tho yard a few feet behind old Prof. Fullalovo. Just as bo passed
Thayer be dropped a paper out of ono of tbo
books ho was carrying. Luckily ho did not
notc« it and I picked it up. Whatluck! It
wus tho examination paper that ho waa to
giro us noxt day in philosophy twenty-five.
I read tho paper through, mado note of the
questions I did not know and hurried up to
bim.
" You dropped this, sir," said I.
"Thank you, Mr. —," Luckily ho did
not remember mo, Ho put.it lu with his
other papers without looking at it.
I congratulated myself all tho evening on
my good luok, as I carefully and thoroughly
studied up the answers te tho questions ou
tho paper,
" Lucky dogi" muttered soveral men ub I
wrote my book full with a satisfied air noxt
dny, and wont out before tho hour closed.
It wns n very hard paper. I knew that woll
onough.
At tho noxt examination old Prof. Fullalovo came beaming into tho room.
" Gentlemen," sold ho, "I appreciate that
I gavo you much too hard an examination.
I havo looked over only two books and found
thut thoy contain almost nothing. Luckily
for you, gentlemen, 1 shall not count this
examination."
Onco moro I was among tho lucky ones, j

X Hauling- Storm.
On Friday the steamer Gladys,
while returning from OhilUwnck, met
with a gale uf wind euch us has never
before been experienced by (lie oldest
navigator tin the river. A t>hovt distance below Sumas a gale overtook tho
Bteamer and sunn iho wator was lashed
Into waves which broke oyer the deck
in a surprising maimer. At this point
the river is shallow and full of snags,
nnd tbo zig stag course was rendered
more dangerous when it was necessary
to bring the steamer broadside to the
wind. The force of the wind was sn
great that for somo minutes at a time
the vessel would bo heeled over until
her lee guard was under water. Few
of thu passengers expected lu reach
the shore iu safety, and nil agree that
Capt, Robinson's coolness nnd skill
alone saved the steamer and her
precious human cargo. After a period
of the greatest anxiety to all on board,
the steamer was finally run under theleo
of the land and beached in a small bay,
where she remained till the storm had
spent its force 24 hours later. The
passengers describe tho gale as of unusual violence The wind fairly howled and when each wavo broke its crest
was picked up mid driven along like
drifting snow. Tho Gladys reached
port on Saturday afternoon none the
worse uf her stormy experience.
A i.t'itniiie Suriil'l.-e.
Messrs. Barrett & Gleiiaon's company appeared last night at the New
Park in "Tho Queen's Evidence," and
gave a smooth and without exaggeration a splendid performance. This
company came almost unheralded and,
unlike most of the attractions appearing here, promised less than lliey wire
capable of giyingand did give. "Queen's
Evidence'' has been played here before, but never as well mounted and
nevor better played than last night.
The compiny is a strong ono. Mr.
E. J. Barren, who impersonated Gilbert Medland, has had considerable
experience in the legitimate Bchool,
and it manifested itself very clearly
in the freedom and breadth of his acting last night. Mr. Kedley gives a
very clever and original conception o[
Solomon Is-incs. Miss Isabel Gaffeey,
the leading lady, us Kate Medland,
completely captured tho audience, her
affecting scene ns mother and child
with little Nina Muitkuid bringing out
the handkerchiefs quite freely. Man-
lie Axtell was. charming as Ada Sydney,
and Walter Pollard did a fine bit of
character work in tho light part of tho
lock-keeper. Tho pieco was magnificently mounted, tho riso of the curtain eliciting hearty applause. Tho
famous lock scene in the second act
was highly realistic, tho effectiveness
of its presentation securing a curtain
cnll for its finale. Tho interior used
in the third and fourth nets waa richly
Bet and generously applauded.—Ore-
gonian,
"Queen"u Evidence" will bo played
at Herring's Opera Houso to-night by
thia company nud to-morrow niglit

.1 Strange Siory.
Mi
Abraham A , a farmer, Hying near. Victoria, is making arrangements to enter the ministry. This determination on the part of Mr. A, is a
great surprise to his many friends, but
thoro is a very queer story in connection with it. Last Friday he started
for Sooke, and when about half way ho
saw a cloud shaped like a balloon, nnd
occupied apparently by a woman, arise
from a meadow nnd come towards him.
When about 200 yards distant and
about 100 feet in the air, the balloon
suddenly dissolved and left the woman,
with long, floating hair, standing alone.
Sho had one baud outstretched toward
Mr. A., its if beckoning him.
Mr. A. wns greatly frightened, and
still moro bo when tho ghost-like scene
suddenly changed again, and in placo
ef the woman stood a horse with a pair
of (laddie-bags, ami by his side a man
with longhair and a black stovepipe
baton his head. He was dressed iu
clerical garb, and Mr. A. at once recognized him as tho exact counterpart of
his uncle, who lives in Oregon.
Tho apparition also turned for a moment toward the man, then regarding
him gravely it beckoned once, nnd
mounting tho horse galloped slowly
away.
Mr A. did not proceed tiny further,
but returned home at once. A fow
days after his arrival ho received tho
following letter from Oregon:
"Vour Uncle John was called home
yesterday. He was taken ill in prayer-
meeting the night previous, and only
lived n short time. His dying request
was that you should become a minister
of tho Gospel and take up the work
where be loft off."
Mr. A, says that everything ho communicated to Hie Standard.^ representative is true, that he was neither
drunk nor sleepy, and that he regarded
the apparition as u sign from Heaven.

Rev. J. II. White, pastor at the
Methodist Ohurch, preached from 119
Psalm, 7 to 11 v., and said; God's
glory was always shown in nature, his
wisdom and power shown in ihe creation, but the hope of salvation was
shown in the precioUB records of
his revealed will. In the earliest ages
of the Christian churches groat interest
was shown in the spread of the Word,
but they were at a disadvantage, as
printing was not discovered, at least
was not practiced among tho European
nations; the scrolls had to be written
by hand, thus tho full copy of tho
Sriptures woro rare and seldom Been,
and only during modem li'iics tho
spread of tho Gospel had assumed any
groat proportions. During the last
hundred years there hnd been a continuation of the miracle on tho day of
Penticost, and 18 ur ID tongues or languages had increased tu 200, and the
wonderful works of God wero now-
printed in these and distributed, so
that almost every nation and peuplo
having a language had been benefited
and to those who had no language sufficiently clear, men nud v. omen had gone
to teach iho Gospel by their lira.
David here speaks of how wonderful
arc God's works in nature, and
although thero appeals considerable
repetition, yot each explains somo
phase of truth, and wo will follow the
Psalmist. Firs', ho snys, "The law of
tho Lord ia perfect." The Mosaic law,
contained iu thu Ton Commandments,
was perfect. All human laws have certain imperfections, but St. Paul snys
"the law of tho Lord is holy"—uo
dross, nu inconsistency, no incompleteness. Tho books of the Old Testament
are now attracting more attention,
thero is a going bnck to get at the foundation, and somo say lhat tho great
conflict of coming times will be upon
theso old books. Thero could be no
meaning to tho plan uf salvation but
fur tho words of God transcribed back
as far us Sinai. Men are now paying
more attention to tho secular portions
of Moses' law; his was the best system
of sanitary law promulgated, and on
the ownership of properly Muses' law
was perfect, complete; we nre a long
way behind in matters of law. As
Britons wo think our law perfect, but
wo don't begin to como up tu these old
laws relating to revenue found in Leviticus nnd Deuteronomy, and I commend to thoso just now troubled about
the sources of revenue these old laws,
and in the study oE them will ba re-
(locted thoro our imperfection and
guilt, and this, bringing condemnation
und sense of guilt home to us, will be
tho turning-point toward a bettor life,
toward Heaven. "God's testimony
(witness) is sure" explains his own
character, giving us direction and foundation for hope, aud making Iho simple
(humble) wise. "The statutes of tho
Lord arc right" (iu the decreed limit),
in the lines lie has drawn about us, su
that we shall not stray. Some people
are troubled because tho judgements of
God aro nut explained, becauso God
haa nut chosen to reveal his purposo;
among other things, tho renson why a
child'should suffer for tho sins of its
parents, and bo born diseased, decrepit, or of weak mind,.the innocent
suffering for the guilty. Sumo stumble
because uf this, but the statutes uf the
Lord are right, and through His law all
aro bound u;t in one humanity, and
through Christ taking upon Himself
that humanity we are saved and are in
blood relationship with Him. "Tho
ooinmandinonfc of the Lord is pure."
To those that keep thom they aro enlightening, cleansing, and showing that
our need ia provided for. If they only
revealed our lost stato, our condemnation, how wretched that revelation;
but God's commands were interwoven
with His morey, by tho laying on
Christ the sins ot us all; look at both
Bides. The rov. gentleman, in conclusion, reminded his hearers uf the
self-co n vie ting before the "groat white
throne," and tho heart echoa thero
would ho iu eternity of the justness of
God's judgments, and very strongly
pointed uut David's estimate of tho
value of God's judgments, being "more
to be doeired than gold," nnd alluded
to the prevailing lovo of gold in tho
eity, for which, although must men
would not actually commit crimes, yet
they would compromise good and evil,
and warned his hearers against being
carried away in tho oxcitomeut of increased values, and entreating them to
givo God His own and to tako God's
word and press it to their hearts, and
that bye-and-byo wo shall know Hi3
will concerning us.
Tlio clmir are making great improvement, nnd evince a desire to had tho
congregation in their songs nf praise.
The novelty of tho instrumental
changes is wearing off aud there is a
settling down to truly congregational
singing.
ST.  I'AUt.'s UHOltOlI,
At tho Reformed Episcopal church
last evening Mr. Ferris road tho very
Impressive sorvico, and the pastor,
Rev. Thus. Haddon, preached from
110 Psalm, 172 verse, "My tongue
shall speak of Thy word,'- and said:
As tho annual meeting of tho Bible
Society lakes placo in this city on
Thursday next tho ministers woro requested to specially tako up Iho subject uf "the Bible" to-day by way of
preparation. No better subject can be
discussed than the Bible, God's revealed will to mankind, tho text-bouk
of thousand's of ministers and Sundny
school teachorB, by which man's position is established, light given as to
his destiny, through redemption by
tho cross, opening up tho way tu
heaven, and touching how to shun tho
death that nevor dies und gain the inheritance. It elevates nations and
people, makes the savage a saint, makes
tho world purer and happier, and I
desire with tho Psalmist that "my
tongue shall Bpeak of Thy word." To
state nil the Bible hns done would lake
too long, and I can only outline.
What would Great Britain, civilized
Europe, and America have been if they
had not had the Bible ub tho foundation of their national history 7 Japan
had representatives abroad studying
tho secrets uf the advance of the civilized nations, missionaries were laboring through the country, and the authorities wero calling for English
speaking teachers; hence Japan was
becoming civilized, they had found tho
Bible was tho secret. The Bible had
become tho founder and suppurter of
almost every hutnano institution. The
sword had boon tried ns a civilizer and
failed, whereas tho Bible had boon a
succeas, ns tho proof was apparent in
many of the Pacific islands. Tho
Bible had beon doing silent but effective wurk in many pirts of the dark
continent, reducing rude Ianguagos to
literature, and teaching the healing
art, pushing forward its luminous
outposts, acting ns a pioneer in casting
up tho highways, furnishing the only
suro foundation to science and human j
benefaction. The Bible missions reflected their light, opened up channels
for Christian trade, channels of lyealth,
contributing to geography, physiology,
mineralogy, geology and othor scioiieer.
And then looking at tho spiritual and
eternal side of the question, "half can
nover be told," and when we conceive
tho help tj ourselves, oven though our
vision cannot see, our intellect cannot
contemplate, all the good it does we
must say "blessed bonk." The impossibility to dostruy.it, goes to prove
its divine origin; they have tried to
bum it and failed. They must first
rid tho world of the millions of copies
and rodi.ee them 'to ashes, rid the
libraries of books referring to it, destroy all the poetry and prose, enter
tho courts of law and remove tho laws
and codes derived from it, thon courso
through tho galleries of art and slash
and daub over tho works of genius
that artists havo produced, and go
through the conservatories of music,
the baptistries uf churches, and even
through tho comotries of tho dead, and
witli mallet and chisel erase the engravings—do nil this before you ean
oblitornto that book for which our
fathers died. The more it is assailed,
thu mure it shines; opposition only
fans tho flame till it shines with greater lustre, and it is a wonder that mon
are so foolish as tu try; for, if all traces
ot it were obliterated, it would yet live
in the hearts uf men, and it wuuld not
take long tu prepare a now edition from
memory by tlie aid of the thousands uf
printing presses. And while tho Bible
sees all go to decay, it still lives, and
is incorruptible nud shnll live till the
angel who shall put une foot on the
land and the other on tho soa sweareth
by him that liveth and was dcud "that
time was no more," and thia eternal
endurance should bo a sufficient reason
to adopt the text and to treasure tho
truths of tho Bible in our hearts, be
guided by aud tako them as a rulo
through lifo.
The church management have kindly
placed a desk in one of tho pews for
tho use of reporters.
ST. ANDBBW'S OHURCH.
Rev. Thos. Scouler preached at tho
Presbyterian church hist evening from
tho 110th Psalm, 18v.—"Open Thou
mine eyes that I may behold wondrous
things out of thy hiw"— and spoke us
follows: In this chapter tho law of
the Lord is tho subject of tho Psalmist's
meditations. "Blessed are tho nnde-
lilod in the way who walk in the law
of tho Lord;" "O, how I lovo Thy
law, it is my meditation all tho day."
There was no subject mure congenial
to tho Psalmist's mind; it engaged all his
powers. But this prayer indicates that
something more was needed than the
mere exercise of reason tu understand
the wondrous things of God's law. It
was ttio anointing of tho eye salve
spoken of iu tho buok nf Revelation.
Paul Bays, "Eye hath not seen, nor
ear heard, neither hath it entered into
the heart of man to conceive the things
which God hath luid up for them that
love Him, but God hath revealed them
unto us by His Spirit." In the synagogue, in tho reading of the law, it was
customary tu put a vail ovor the face"
It was done as an aet of reverence, but
it became an awful symbol of that vail
which was over the mind of the Jew,
whicli rcmaiuoth untaken away until
this day. Light shineth nil arouud
thom, but they are blind—blind lo tho
spiritual meaning uf the scriptures.
It is not till this vail is taken away
that they oan understand tho scriptures. But this is nut the condition
of tho Jews only. Many of the Gentiles are in the same aad condition.
And this is not confined tu those iu
heathen darkness only; but many who
sit under tho preaching uf tho gospel,
und think they understand tho scriptures, nre as blind as Bartimteus.
Therefore we should all pray, "Open
Thou mine eyes, that 1 may behold
wondruus things out of Thy law."
There are certainly wondrous things-
found in tho law ol nature. Thero is
not a leaf, or insect, or creature of any
kind, that has not laws by which they
are regulated. Tho prayer of the
Psalmist doubtless refors to all of God's
revealed will. Apart from God's ro
vealcd will man could nover havo
known God. Tho laws uf nature may
revenl much nbout God, but they do
not tell us what He is Himself, nor do
they tell us what tho relation is which,
subsists botween God and mail. Winced a revelation to know this, and
God has revealed Himself tu us by His.
word and Spirit. What wondruuu
things wo find in God's law! Thero wo
got tho idea uf tho truo God, His perfections, His attributes, His eternity,
sovereignty, power, majesty, truth,
righteousness, lovo, and mercy. What
wondrous tilings God's law reveals
about Christ! His lifo was unique.
He lived among sinnors, yot He was
free from sin. Ho died tho death, yet
.those who condemned Him found nu
fault in Him nt all. By .His resurrection He was declared tu be tho Sun uf
God with power. O, what wondrous
tilings in tho bible we see! There we
learn that man is u lost sinner, but
that God in His wondrous lovo and
mercy has provided n way by which
he may bo saved. And further, thnt
the Holy Spirit is essential to man's
salvation. Wo need our eyes to bo
opened by tho Holy Spirit that wu
may see. In serving God there are
certain pro-requisites, and this is ono
of thom, that our eyes may ba opened.
Tho second is humility; tho heart that
iB lifted up with pride cannot sec the
wondrous things of God's law. The
bible jb liko nu other book; wo must
bo taught by tho Spirit, of God when
we como to His buuk. Mere intellect
nover could comprehend tho things uf
God's law; it is with the heart man be-
lievcth. But faith cometli by hutting,
and the speaker showed that it was the
duty of Christians to givo the word uf
God to tho whole world; that wan the
work in which the British and Foreign
Bible Society wns engaged; it was a
worthy work, and should have the
liberal support of ull true Christians.
The splendid accouatic properties uf
the new church aro very untie ible,
both in speaking and sinning, and.
with the really fine ergan and the constant improvement of the choir, (ho
music calls for commendatory notice.
