The Northern Assurance Oompany, says Colonies and India, does
not appear to have wasted much
time in making n name for itself at
theAutipodes, if we may judgo from
the following yarn, which wo clip
from a Victorian paper: A man, a
member of the Salvation Army, was
standing on a window ledgo in Melbourne, washing the glass, when a
friend shouted up to him from tho
street, "Look out, there; if you fall
you will he killed." "Never mind
if I am," replied the man of blood
and fire; "my soul is insured in the
army of tho Lord, and my life is insured in the Northern Assurance
Company ?"
Some timo ago a Detroit girl was
shot and nearly killed by her lovor because, having discovered that ho
was married, she refused to'have
anything more to do with him.
Last week, says the Mail, ihe villain was acquitted by a jury of
twelve of his fellow-citizens on the
ground of emotional insanity, tho
twelve holding that he was insane
at the moment of committing tho act,
The incident leads the Detroit Tribune to remark that such an "outrageous and idiotic verdict ou tho
part of twelve prize jackasses" gives
popular faith in the boatted jury
system of the United States a tremendous wrench.

Nearly 22,000,000 acres of land
are owned in the TJ, S. by mon who
owo allegiance to other governments. To be exact, thoro arc 21,-
241.900 acres of land under the
direct control and management of
thirty foreign individuals or companies, Thero are 2,720,283 acres
of land in Massachusetts, so that
tho men living in other countries,
and owing allegiance to other powers, own land onough to make about
ten states like Massachusetts, more
than the whole of New England,
more land than some governments
own to support a king. The largest
amount of land owned by any one
man or corporation is owned by a
foreign corporation called tho Holland company. Talk about alien
landholders in Ireland, there is twice
as much land owned by aliens in
tho United States as there is owned
by Englishmen in Ireland. Think
of it 1 Jloro than 22,000,000 acres
of land owned by men in Europe !—
Am. Paper. *
A late Washington despatch says:
Tho death of Ex-Senator Simon
Cameron of Pennsylvania hns produced a great curiosity in official
circles as to tho contents of an
agreement made during the stirring
times just beforo tho war between
Senators Cameron, Zach Chandler,
of Michigan, and B. P. Wndo, of
Ohio. Tho assault upon Oharles
Sumner in tho senate chambers by
Preston Brooks in 1858, and his
subsequent refusal to accept a challenge of Brooks to tight a duel,
aroused a fierce discussion as to
whether the Northern senator
could consistently with his
honor and courage, refuse to resent a personal assault. Shortly
aftor 'his, Senator Green of Missouri
threatened Senator Cameron with
assult for words spoken in debate,
and then it was that tho threo senators drew up a written agreement
which was not to be made public
until after the death of all the signers.
This compact is believed to be a
mutual agreement to shoot on tho
spot anyone who might assault either
in tlio senato, and if necessary to
vindicate their courage, accept tho
clmllongo of any Southerner to fight
a duel. As Simon Cameron was the
last to pass away there is now nothing to prevent the publication of this
most remarkable and interesting
document.
CANADA (,'Ol'VKIOHT.
Toronto- .July 10.—Grout interest
litis bfon aroused in publishing emit res
horo bv thft report from England that
Kinrliaii publisher*, will light tlio Canada copyright act passed last session.
Information received horo is tu the effect that British music publishers nro
tho chief opponents of the measure,
whioh thoy term ono of confiscation,
and ono which the imperial authority
should veto. Tho Telegram, wliich
voices tlio viows of the proprietor, J.
Ross Robertson, one of tho foremost
advocates in gotting the Canadian law
passed, says ; "It may not bo out of
place to remind the English publishers ;
and legislators, too, thut ub Ottawa we
have au assembly of men elected by
tho people to legislate for tho people;
that tho copyright act was passed not
only 111 tho intorcsti of tho Canadian
publishers, but also of English authors
and English publishers; that Sir John
Thompson iu drafting tho bill was
particularly careful to do nu injustice
to any section of the community aud
that before tho veto power was put into force tho government of tho Dominion muy havo some say in regard to it,
Canada hus been cursed by the imperial copyright act. Tho interots of
the typesetter, papermaker, printer
unci reader have been blighted by tho
baneful ellects uf British legislation
in this paiticulur line, and the Ghoul* J
ish avarice with which the English
publisher grasps tho Canadian market
places them among the most selfish, of
British mercantile men.

stream with ropes to assist iu the rescue. One person wu seen splashing
and plunging near the Johnstown,
Fonda & Gloversville railroad bridge,
one quarter of a mile down the stream.
As he floated passed those on the
shore, ho cried, "for God'i sake help
me." He was swept by in the current
so close to the shore that a man who
was in a boat secured to a pile of
wreckage got hold of him, but owing
to the swift current was unable to hold
him and he was swept under the floating driftwood. Two other penons
came down a minute later clinging to n
plank and shouting for help, but were
swept out of sight below the railroad
bridgo. Among those in the patty
who stood on the shore were Superintendent Cotton, President Peacock of
the Fonda Johnstown & Glovenvillo
railroad, who had come down on a
special train from Gloversville with
the intention of transferring the passengers and baggage where the railroad bridgo was swept away. No connection has been made from the east

no passengers or baggage on the
oast train, and there is not like bo any
train on tho Fonda, Johnstown and
Gloversville Railroad inside of three or
four days, nnd those who want to get
bnck and forth- between Gloversville
and Fonda must employ conveyances.
Up to nino o'clock, four bodies were
recovered from the debris. No one
seems to know how many people are
drowned. Soveral bridges are swept

Davitt spoke excitedly end with much
vehemence, attcrting et the conclusion
of hia remark, that the affair had been
planned by Houston and Lecaron with
i n tcntion of discrediting the Irith and the
bolstering up tbe tottering cute of the

Some of tlio recout gossip from
London concerns peoplo whom all
tlio world knows, ami is entertaining.
The projected marriage between tho
Princess Louise of Utiles and the
Eafl of Fife is popular for several
reasons. Tho Princo ami Princess
of Wales and oil thoir belongings
are in high favor with tlio peoplo,
and almost anything thoy did would
be well received j but this evidence
that they consider a British nobleman quite as good a matoh for their
daughter as a German prince, tickles
the pride of the tight little island,
especially as it seems to be tho impression that, did not the Queen's
ideas stand in the way, they would
return to old Ploiitagenet traditions,
and seek spouses for their sons and
daughters among tlie aristocracy of
their own court. On the other
hand, the rumored engagement of
Prince Albert Victor to his cousin,
Princess Victoria of Prussia, is not
popular at all. The princo is known
in society as ''Collars and Duffs,"
and the public appear to believe
that ho is, in this niatter, simply an
obedient grandson, and by no means
an ardent lover- so they take his
side of the question, and hope that
something may turn up to defeat
this now German scheme, and leave
him freo to marry an English girl
by and by, Ono paper voices tho
popular sentiment on the whole sub-
The Victoria board of trade, which
ambitiously persists in writing "B.
0." bofore its name—probably to
denote the antiquity of its origin-
held tts annual meeting on Friday
afternoon last. By the report which
appears in tho Victoria press, we
observe that the venerable and influential body in question takes a
paternal and most commendable
cognizunco of nearly all provincial
matters affecting trade and commerce. Much of tho report is of tho
nature of a review of tho work of
the board for tho past year, showing
that it has not been idle nor apathetic whero Victoria's interests, aud
secondarily, those of the province,
were concerned. What is particularly worthy of note in tlie report is
the board's unmistakable expression
on the reciprocity question. l?ivo
separata references does tho report
make to tho necessity of some measure of reciprocity being established
with the neighboring republic, for
tlie speoial benefit of the deep
sea fishing, mining and lumbering industries, and to facilitate the
development of the resources of the
provinco generally. Many advantages, the board thinks, might be do
rived from reciprocity in raw products with the United States, and
it is pointed out that tho province
is laboring under serious disadvantage' with the present customs tarili".
It is significant that tlio two leading
Viotorii papers manage to agree iu
supporting the board's attitude and
expressions on this question. Few,
indeed, acquainted with the circumstances, will hold a widely different
opinion.
prosent, and, of course, that a full
day's pay should   be  given for tho
shorter time.   Tho contractors have
proposed to compromise by conceding two   hours on Saturday afternoons—that is, allowing the mon to
(juit work at four instead of at six
o'clock, and promising to adopt tho
nino  hours' system, as   demanded,
aftor tho  first  of   October, when
buildings   now under contract will
he Qouipjeled,   With roppoot to carpenters employed   iu mills and fuo*
tories— .'in exception is made, however, the proprietors claiming that
they are   forced   to  compete, with
similar   establishment'!    in   other
plai-es, I'liiininj' ton lioimi a Any and
two Iioui'ti oil' on   Saturdays, and,
consequently, they cannot fairly be
expected to do better.   The carpenters' union   took   this proposal iuto
consideration, but declined to entertain it, ou tho ground, principally,
that   by the   first   of   October tho
building season would bo practically
over and tho carpenters would reap
little advantago from the concession
of tho nine hour system at that date.
Tho strikers are confident of winning, for, us they say, the nino hour
system obtains in tlio coast cities of
the United   States, which   uro not
likely to furnish   men to work in
Vancouver for ten hours a day, and
Victoria, Westminstor mid Nanaimo
have been prospected with no success,   .ttt sympa-thy with the striking carpenters, and with tho object
of establishing tho nine hour system
all round, the plasterers havo struck
also, and   it   is   expected thnt tho
stone-iiinBons and bricklayers will go
out   in  ii day or two.    The movement ia also beginning to affect tho
painters j  and all building operations, und work in the mills and factories, which are partially suspended
now on account of   the   strike, are
threatened with a  complete deadlock.    A few of the contractors, it
would appear, have already given in
to the demand, thus  keeping a certain amount of work going, but those
contractors who   huvo yielded are,
according to the othors, tho small
fry, who  are doing odd jobs and
have  in hand uo largo contracts.
This is denied by the strikers; but
it appears   certain that the largo
majority at least of the most extensive employers liavo so far refused
to accede   to   tho demands of  tho

willing to compromise. Tito contractors and other employers who
aro holding out, although they lmve
not as yet succeeded iu getting men
from tha outside, maintain their
ability to do so. Without some
compromise, tho strike is likely to
prove very embarrassing to employers and employed, besides seriously
retarding the progress of the city,
coming at this time, in tho very
height of the building season.
Strikes are ovidently the order of
tho day. Tho telegraph despatches
seldom fail to appiiso us of thoso inconvenient and regrettable, but oft
recurring, demonstrations of dissatisfied labor in all parts of tho world,
accompanied iu many cases by manifestation? of violence and rioting,
and in. nearly every instance being
ini.mi*dlately productive of embar-
rassmonfcnnd injury to both employer
nnd employed, and, if continued for
any length of time, causing untold
deprivation, suffering, ond demorali
z-ition among the workingmen and
their families. Quite often there is
good cause for thoso demands of
labor upon capital that, in tho present ordor of things, naturally eventuate in strikes, Strikes do occur,
howover—whioh is not singular—
undor circumstances tliat are unjustifiable, and unjust to the employer.
Arbitration, it might be imagined,
would offer tlie most satisfactory,
and at tlio same time most sensible,
mode of settling these differences
between labor and capital when they
arise, as appears inevitable, from
time to time j nnd, indeed, arbitration ia coming into favor and promises to- be more frequently resorted
to in future for this very purpose by
those who have demonstrated tho
strike, carried out to its full and
logical conclusion, to bo not only
irrational, but inconvenient, unsatisfactory, and, on occasions, oven
suicidal.
The latest labor demonstration
near home is that of the carpenters at
our sister city of Vancouver, which
has assumed a definitenessand dimensions that entitles it to be classed as
a fully-fledged strike. Tho journeymen carpenters of Vancouver,
through their union, have asked,
and finally demanded, from the contractors of tho "terminal oity" that
nine hours should constitute a full
day's work, instead of ten, as  at
As to the merits of tho case, most
peoplo will sympathize with the
desire of the carpenters and other
tradesmen to havo the nine hour
system introduced. Wo believo
that nine hours is quito sufficient
for a day's work, and that the gun-
era! adoption of the system would
be a considerable boon to the workingmen, without materially, if at all,
in the long run, lessening the amount
of work done, Wo would like, also,
to see the Saturday half holiday generally adopted as well, and believo it
will be eventually. The working-
men constitute by far tho largest
and most important factor in society, and their well-being, oontent-
edness, and happiness is of more
moment than the squeezing of a few
hour:-; extra work out of their bodies
as if they were mere machines; In
pressing for reforms, however, workingmen would do well to do so in a
moderate and reasonable spirit, aud,
while ever keeping in view the end,
it would often bo the part of wisdom ti make temporary concessions
to employers, to avoid unnecessary
mutual embarrassment, especially
when tlie spirit and principle of
their demands is recognized by tho
latter. Important reforms, however
desirable, cannot, as a rule, be inaugurated suddenly without causing
serious inconvenience and loss to
somebue. A little yielding is not
incompatible with true dignity and
continued pursuance of a worthy
and legitimate object, and is often the
shortest way round.

Extraordinary Contest Between a
Gorilla and a Lion.
In tho gloomy rccosaos of thu primeval
forhats still io bo found In Central Africa
thoro ia ti vast unexplored flold still otrotcli-
ing forth',its unmeasured Bpaco to the
hunter and tho naturalist. To tlioso who
know tho faco of naturo an it ia beforo the
corrosive hand of civilization sweeps across
it-tlioro la littlo ground for wonder that
tho two are almost always in a grantor or
Iqbsqil- degree united. Occasionally, then,
even tho most ardent hunter will loso the
blood instinct that animates him, and, lowering his riflo, perhaps in a moment of
great personal danger, will forgot his long
mul laboriously sought quarry to watoh
aomo now trait or freah instinct in tho animal that, unconscious of Ills prosonco, gam-
hols beforo him. It Is of such au episode
thnt W. P. Pond writes In tho Now York
titan
My guido and I had boon for two days
after big gamo with but littlo success, until
shortly after noon on tho second day wo
struck what appeared to bo ono of tho denuo
patches of lraponotralia that can not bo described, but must bo scon to bo undorsteod.
lluliind us stretched vast avenues of kecij
tho hoight of whioh was lost In lho leafy
tilouds which shut out tho fierce, burning
glnro of the sun and rendered oven tho
terrible noontide cool and pleasant. In
front of us caino tho closer stems and
thick, Intertwining growth of vines and
creepers, with stunted bushes and long
pendant masses, Impenetrable savo whoro
somo gigantic bruto had crushed a passage
through, leaving hia tracks In broken
branches, crushed bushes and thickly-scattered twigs. Birds of gorgeous plumage
with harsh, dissonant voices peopled tho
trees, tho chirp of a grasshopper, the sharp
hiss of a serpent, or tho shrill sound of a
locust roso from tho matted gross, with occasionally tho hoot of an owl, or tho chatter
of a stray monkey, which sounded strangely in tho peculiar silence of tho forost. As
we advanced along tho track, slowly and
with great difficulty, wc scorned to leavo
them fur behind, and entered into a region
of semi-darkness, a faint greenish-black
light, as though tho glorious sunlight overhead, balked in finding a diroct lulot to tho
ground, had beon filtered through yards of
close-growing green foliage, und uncon*
microti by all tho forces of vegetation, had
succeeded in sending a faint, subdueu som-
"ohinco of itself, liko that found in somo vast
cathedral aisle. My eyes struggled with
tlio gloom, and scorned to havo an instinctive powor to dilato thoir pupils sufficiently
to magnify or condense tho attenuated rays
until thoy woro able to illumine tho surrounding Plutonian depths.
My guido suddenly paused and made u
sign to mo with his opon palm, which, in
tlit! language of tho hunter, said that ho
Imd struck a trail, or heard somo token of
tho proximity of gamo thnt had oscaped my
loss ueuto powers. 1 cautiously advanced
to his .side, and following tho direction of
his linger peered through tho brush, and
saw that wo lay upon the edge of n small
clearing, overshadowed by an enormous
tree, whoso folingo,'without really admitting ti greater volume of light, seemed to
equuteo tho gleam, and so render objects at
n distanco of thirty or forty yards porfoctly
porcoptiblo,
Right opposite to us, with his back
against n trco, was tlio sleeping form of a
Irago gorilla, Ina hands hanging down by
hi-i sides, his legs crooked in front of him,
and his head listlessly lying sldewiso on
his shoulder. Somo distance from him was
lho female, apparently busily engaged iu
gathering nuts, swinging from tree to tree,
now disappearing into tho surrounding forest, but ever uud anon returning to keep
watch and ward over tho slooplng lord and
muster. For some minutes I hesitated as
to whut courso to purauo, whothor to attempt to got any closer, as tho distanco was
rather a long one, iu such a light, to attack
uu auhnal liko tho gorilla, who, If only
wounded, would, in nil probability, with the
female, charge right down into us; or if I
should take all risks and rely upou tho second riflo of my guide. At lost I decided to
lako my chanco whero I was, but upon
raising my riflo I heard a scream of agony
from tho female, whieh caused the sleeper
to start to its feel, and as it did so tho femalo literally fell from a troo on tho edge
of tho clearing down to tho ground, uttering
thu most piercing cries that human imagination can conceive.
Thou ti terrific roar that shook the ground
broko upon tho silonco und told tho history
of tho female gorilla's fright. It was a lion,
and ut tho sound of his voico sho again iled
into tho trco, while tho molo uttered a deep,
savago, hoarBO roar lhat was the answer to
tho lion's challenge. Immediately a brushing sound waa hoard, and a full-grown lion
hounded into tlio open, and stood, hts head
erect, his mane bristling liko tho hair ou a
cat, tho personification of brute strength
uud courage.
As his eyes lighted on tho gorilla hts tail
began to wave to and fro. Wider and wider grew its swoops, until at lust it struck
its ribs, first ono sido ond thon tho othor,
with resounding blows, whilo roar upon
roar gavo token of his Increasing rage and
ungcr. Tho gorilla placed hts upper hands
upon tho ground uud bounded into tlio air
fully six foot, alighting on his four hands
nnd bounding up again, seemingly for tho
'. purpose of enraging tho Hon to tho greatest
possiblo degree. Ho thon rose to his full
height, on hiB hinder hands, uttering tremendous roars and beating liis breast with
his great fist, producing sounds like thoso
i mndo by heavy blows upon a bass drum.
Thon ho dropped upon all fours again, remaining porfcctly motionless, with lho exception of his eyebrows, which worked up
und down with lightning speed, giviugan
expression of ferocity to his face thut is indescribable.
Fascinated tho night, my rifle: dropped
from my shoulder uud my guide nud Hay
llat upon tha ground, mute witnesses of
tht) tragedy that was about to bo enacted.
Suddenly tho lion uttered another car-split-
tlug roar and bounded forward. A few
short steps, a tremendous leap, two or throo
sharp, short growls, and both combatants
wore in tho uir togothor, tho gorrilla having leaped high and straight as thu Hon
charged. Iu mid-air tho Hon turned uud
struck apparently vainly attho;gorilla, who,
us tho lion full on his aido upou tho ground,
ullghtod on him, struck him two territlo
blows und boumh-d awny with a sidling
run to a distanco of soveral yards. I could
■ now boo that tho gorilla was severely
wounded on tho head nnd side, nud that tho
lion had a fearful gash in his side, for surely his ribs could nevor havo withstood
thoso two tremendous blows.
As soon as he regained his foot ho
charged at the gorilla again and again, but
was oludod every timo, It being almost lm*
possiblo te follow their rapid movements in
tho half-light of tho clearing. At last tho
Hon paused, and as ho did so tho ape dashed
at him nnd, strlkiug him a stunning blow
upon tho side of the hoad, completely rolling him over. Again and again tho charges
woro renewed] nud at ovory pause "the
gorilla returned tho charge and knocked
the lion atdewlso. Theso blows seemed to
daze lho groat cat, aud as he roso ho more
than once staggored and foil, the gorilla
moanwhllo dancing with n peculiar bobbing movement around and In front of hint.
Tho Hon now began to mnko feints to
draw his adversary within range. At hist,
stopping In a mnd rush, the gorilla struck
short, tho lion rushed In, turnod upon his
back, and received tho gorilla with teoth
nnd claws. Growls, snaulos and roars
pealed forth from a whirling mass of leaves
and dust; limbs and bodies strangely
mingled were dimly seen through il, as
though twonty beasts Instead of two wore
engaged tn one conglomerate death-struggle, At last thoro was a sickening crash, a
horrible crunching of hones, a demoniacal
yell of pain, faster and fnBtcr whirled the
mass, thou followed a pause, and I <-uw tho
Hon wus uppermost, with tho left arm of
tho gorilla in Ills powerful jaws; his claws
were fixed In the npo's shoulder, und ho
himself was one muss of gashes and ronta.
Tho right hand of the gorilla was fixed In
tho lion's Bide, nud hotli his hinder hands
wore drawn up ami soomlngly Imbedded ln
tho lion's ribs.

twisted liis head undor tho lion's thronl, I!

nil was over. Tho whirling leaves se.tS-'.l

lay, motionless, and thoro we lay, too, ftw-
oinatodi enthralled, at tlio strange spec*
taolo wo had just witnessed.
Prosontly a figure moving on tho odgu of
tho clearing attracted our notice, ami wo
saw the fentiilo gorilla peering out between
the bUBhes, with an agonizingly human look
upon her face that was dreadful to see,
Slowly and cautiously she advanced across
tho open space until she reached tho bodies;
then she touched first ono und thou the
othor, uttering plaintive criOB of grief that
were touching in tho extreme! At lust she
managed lo disentangle the body of her
mate, looked into the eyes, examined the
wounds, and still crying, look It Into hot'

MISS   MARRYATT'S  IDEAS.
■Joiii'i    Jluiis'trlE'iiil-'    Information    About
American Women nml Mon.
"What impressions did you form otthe
Yankees during your stay in America', Miss
•Marryalt? You cau give me something
that Is not in your book on tho subjoel, I
dare say," naked a representative of the
Loudon Xeis Age ot tho famous novelist.
"That will bo difficult, I'm afraid," replied Mis3 Marryatt, with a pleasant smile.
But America is a largo subject. Where
do you wish mc to begin,!"
"Well, supposo we start with American
women. What aro their National characteristics J"
Diamonds and falso teoth, I should say.
Every American woman hns a rage for lhe
former, and the latter, owing greatly to
tho system of living practiced by the United
Statea, is inevitable Uut, besides this, till
American women, generally speaking, nro
afilictcd with a would-be smartness, and
speak through tho noso. Thoy havo all,
moro or less, a nasal twang, owing tq what,
I don't know. Somo say it's tho dryness of
the air that affects some vessel in 1 hu noso,
but I'm sure lam not able to toll. The
Americans undoubtedly, howovor, suitor
from a National catarrh, as is most, evident
in the peculiar tone in which nearly all of
thom speak.
"There is another thing about American
women, too. They don't -makoup'hs the
English—don't dye their hair, and as thoy
get gray at thirty, this is the more peculiar.
I think'lifo is faster and bus more rush and
j'tress there than hero. A nervous excitement, nn irritable unrest pervades all ranks
and elasaos. The ladiea tiro always chewing candy. The men perpetually drinking
ice-Water. They ruin their teeth and digestions at the sumo time. I think America
is the homo of false teoth," added Miss
Mnrryut, meditatively,
"Butdid you seriously intend to state,
Miss Marryat, now, when speultlng of tho
American women not 'making up,1 that
uoito of those Httlc devices, thoso concealed
I'eniiniuo embellishments which one sacs
advertised in ladies' pnpors nro in usage in
the United States!"
"Oh, dear, no; I didn't state that. In
fact, tho Americana aro much cleverer Ln
Improving their figure than thoir English
cousins. Many of tlio men wear stays—only
think!—whilo it la a common thing for the
women lo pad up in front with canary
aced."
Canary scciU"
Yos. For tho bust, you know. Moves
about and gives a lively and natural appearance."
"Didyou enjoy your trip?1! gasped pur
representative, aftor a pause
" All, yes, exceedingly. They arc a most
kiud-hcai'icd and hospitable peoplo. Yes;
I wont to Boston—a city of prigs. The
American men tiro smarter that, tho
English. Not more brains, but more active
and pushing iu their habits. Thoy make
lovo bettor, 1 believo-koop cool. When un
Englishman makes lovo ho gota red and
stutters."
GRAVES IN  ALGIERS.
Grapltle Description of thu Burlnl  of a
Utile Child.
Arab women patronize tho conveyances,
and on Friday thoy go in crowds to Belcour,
whoro there is a cemetery uud a neatliulo
khouba frequented by tho fair box only ou
that day, writes F. A. Bridgman, m Jftir-
/Mr'* Magazine. A column in tho center of
tho court supports trellises of grape-vine.
Tombstones of marble and slate arc uim-er-
oub In tho court us well aa out In the cemetery, At tho hcud of each tomb ia u slab of
marblo with ono or two round holes in
which (lower-pots aro oot, or cups placed
thero that tho birds may drink from thom;
tho natives boliovo thnt theso birds afterwards ily to Heaven with a greeting from
tho soul reposing beneath.   .
Tho hooper of this khouba was old and
blind; ho passed his timo in sweeping the
carpets and matting, thon vesting und singing to himself. Uo would use hia bondkor-
chlof te dust tho sacred tomb, wash It, and
thon dry It In tho sun, holding it until it
Was dry. To satisfy mv curiosity I sent n
u child to translate for me nml ask if ho
was happy, or what ho could desire, He
shook his hoad I " No, I want nothing ■ ;i um
never ennvge, and I um quite happy."
Ouo day I witnessed horo tho burial of u
child. Tiio young boy was laid in tho gruvo
wrapped in a yard or two of whito cotton; a
smaller hole was dug at the bottom of tho
grave, anil sowed as a coffin* boing covered
with Hat Blahs of Btono to prevent tho oiirlii
from falling directly on Uio body. Twenty
or thirty men Btooij, round in silonco, the
earth was hastily replaced and temporary
atones woro placed at tho head rtnd feet;
tho cushions und pieces of embroidory iu
Which tho body lay on tho donkey which
boro it to tho final voating-plnco wero put
back on tho animal, and tho procession
moved silently away, Tho women nnd girls
always como afterward to weep on tho
gravo and placo flowers, nnd especially
branchoB of myrtle. Thoy ofton spondtho

is without doubt a fcasiblo ouo and

other Bohemos aro carried out ur not.
It is claimed that tho run will bo mado
botween Now Westminster and Victoria in two nnd a half hours, which it
is easy to see would bo a great improvement on tho prcsont nrrangu*
ments. Everyone would do well to attend tho meeting and hear what thu
promoters have to say about tho project and how they propose to raiae the

Should No. 2 compauy accept, this

The tame Paradise.
A stranger visiting tho Royal cily
never fails to become impressed with
its many natural advantages, its beautiful uituntiun and romantic surround*
m»s; nt the same timo thu stranger be*
crimes firmly convinced lhat this city
is tho centre of tho greatest cattle
raining district on thu continent. The
atratiger arrives in town and is able
to count at least four distinct broods of
cattlo butwoon the station nnd his hotol.
Ho has some business tu transact nt
tho city hall, und in tho beautiful
(-rounds surrounding that building he
can count from threo to a dozen sleek
looking animals grazing un the sward,
unrestrictod by such signs ni "keen off
tho grass," and "don't touch tho How-
em." Inside he makes inquiries and
is informed that thu city council haa
ordered cow proof, self closing gates,
ns it is feared the animals may get insldo tho building some day nnd devour
tho green baize tables and city archives.
Tho stranger jumps into a carriage
and is driven down Columbia street to
tho crescent, which he finds inhabited
by two or throo bands of cattlo and a
dozen wild horses. Looking down nn
to the railroad track ho sees tho express train dodging cows, but tho animals take things very coolly, evidently
assured that thoy have tho first rftht
of wny. Proceeding to the upper part
»f thu city, cattlo are tho principal objects on the landscape. In vacant lots,
orchards, llower and vegetable gardens,
ou tho highways and by-ways, in fact
everywhere aro cattle tu seen, and the
tinkling of tho enchanting cuw bell
sounds loud iu Iub ears aud drowns the
noiao provoked by tho rush and whirl
uf commercial untorpriso in the lower
part of tho city. And when the
stranger leaves tho city bewildered by
all he has soon, he comes to tho conclusion thet he must have visited one
of the countries described by Gullivor,
whoro man is the servant and animals
tho master.
