JtjA remarkable instance showing
how n person of sdvanced v-aj"* _uf
be able to retain the interest of
young people comes from Taunton,
Mas;.' Mrs. Mary O. Patten, 93
yeara old, has. bad charge of the
infant class in a JJethodist Sabbath
school in that city during the past
forty-eight years. She never misses
a session of the school and the children almost worship Her, Here is
a youthful heart ahd head despite
the lapse of almost a century of
years.
A tunnel eight miles long, through
gneiss rock, is proposed to bring the
confined waters of l'Oegerene-8e to
Christiana, Norway. Aooording to
Im Semaine dee Constructeurs the
tunnel will have a oiroular seotion
nearly sixteen feet in diameter and
will run halt full, The surface of
the lake is 330 feet above sea-level,
and its shores ara surrounded by
forests whose timber will be floated
through the tunnel to the seaport.
The water power thus rendered
available is estimated at 24,000
horse-power.

The Inter-Ocean says: Some
very good people now begin to show
signs of worry, because there will
lie 11 grand ball during-the inauguration festivities. Now suppose
'General Harrison' is li Presbyterian," all tho people of the United
States are not. He has not been
olcut'il president for tlio purpose of
dictating reforms- in the' social
oinusoroentfl of the public, which hy
the great majority are regarded as
harmless. If Gen. Harrison - consulted his own tasto and inclination,
lie would most likely dispense, ..as
much as was in his power, with all
the fuss and parade upon the oc-
casiou. But being a man of sense,
lie will in all probability leave all
the arrangement and responsibility
in the hands of others, and perform
simply the duties of a Christian
gentleman required of him upon
the great occasion.
There was disposed of in a London
auction room the other day, says an
exchange, a arrange . object which
suggests the reflection that the most
precious relics of one age may descend to base uses in the next, The
objeot referred to was the Hindoo
"Lingham" god, consisting of a cat's-
eye standing upright in a topoz,
and mounted on a pyramidal base
studded with diamonds and other
gems. The Lingham god reigned
in venerated splendor for a thousand
years in the temple of Delhi, but in
the Indian Mutiny of 1857 the last
King of Delhi got into the hands of
the conqueror, and the god disappeared in the general ruin. It was
supposed to have been secreted by
the Queen of Delhi, who sold it and
after passing through the hands of
several unbelievers it hu at last
been subject to the indignity of a
knock-down in the auction room.
The butchery of the gladiator to
"make a Roman holiday" was a
handsome distinction compared to
thefate which has overtaken this
old idol.
A writor in the New York Graphic makes the following sensible remarks : Things and not books
should keep young eyes busy. You
should hear the wrath of Boston
doctors with children of their own
over the increasing work ot the
school committees of that and near
towns put on the pupils. "If I let
' my girl study half that is prescribed,"
says one, "she would be myopio in
two years and sightless by thirty,
I wish I could move out to Dakota,
twenty miles from the nearest school
house, and bring the children up
myself. They would know a hawk
from a hernshaw as far as any one.
See those boys with big, handsome
eyes, going from school. Half can't
sight a target or a duck in a marsh
or a ship down tho bay, If the
country should have another war
the government would have to find
regiments in speotaclesl Nine
hours a day do those publio school
children pore over school-books with
the vilest print that ruin eyes. Between the poor print of tha ichool
books and the newspapers, ahd
incessant reading, we are losing eyes
es fast as possible. The big, handsome-eyed women have to nte atropine to see at all. and the olever
women all have contraoted sunken
eyes from reading too muoh, They
begin at five years old and keep
up tasking the eyes till the amaurosis sets in. Do you know thero
isn't one person in SOO with really
good eyes, snd fewer children I"

Suakim, Jan. 2.—General Grenfell
will shortly return to Cairo; a special
parade of the troops took place to-day
when the Egyptian officers and men
were highly commended by tho khe-
dive, through General Grenfell for
their bravery in the recent battles.
General Grenfell addressed tho troops
and gave the men gratuities. A deserter from the Arab camp says that
Osman Digma attempted to send the
women of his harem to Suakim fearing
trouble with the Dervishes. The women were started, but were stopped
by the Arab scouts and sent back to
Handoub. The Dervishes are very
euspicious of Osman Digma, whom
they accuse of treachery. Arab scout,
mounted on camels and spearmen on
foot were observed to-day from an
outlying post. A Greek, who has arrived here from Khartoum, saya that
some months ago the tnahdi'a troops
captured an Englishman passing
through the territory of the Kababish
tribe from the westward. He did not
know hi. name Tho. man was said
by the mahdi's troops to be a lord, but
it is believed here that he U. Neufeld.
When the Greek left Kartcum, he regarded an early emeute among the

OANADIANS HONORED
London, Jan. 2.—Some surprise is
expressed at the omission of the expected honors to certain prominent
Canadians from the new yoar's list.
The list only inoludes three Canadians:
Chief Justice Allen, of New Brunswick, who is knighted;. Mr. J. W.
Trutch, lato Canadian resident agent
in British Columbia, who iB appointed

IRISH TROUBLES.
Dublin, Jan. 8.—At Ballinasloe today a farmer nnmed Brown, who occupied a farm from which the former
tenant, had been evicted, was killed
by 1 men with whom he was disputing
over the occupanoy of the farm One
arrest has been made in connection
with the crime A.erics of very exciting scenes attended an eviction from
the Digbert estate in the County Donegal today. A blacksmith, named
O'Donnell, had strongly bairicaded
his house and the bailiffs and police ill
attempting to effect an entrance by
storm were several times repulsed. In
one of the attempts Sergeant McComb
received severe pitchfork wounds in
the cheek and leg and serious injuries
about the head from the stones with
which the attacking party were pelted,
and oarried away entirely disabled.
Ringing cheors from the by-standers
greeted eaoh successive repulse of the
police and bailiffs. Finally, when the
soldiers were ordered to fire upon the
house, the besieged party were advised
by Father Stephens to surrender and
ti'ey did so, Ten persons were arrested, including Father McFadden.
LATE DESPATCHES.
PUGILISTIC notes.
San Francisco, Dec. 30.—L. R.
Eulda, president of the California Athletic Club, has telegraphed Chas. Mitchell, Kilrain's manager, asking him to
arrange a meeting between the latter
and Jackson for a purse of $0,000,
McAuliffe, when spoken to last night
about his battle with Jackson, said:
"Jackson is a good man and a square
fighter, and I was not in condition Friday night. I was made to believo I had
a soft thing and therefore did not train
enough. As soon as 1 get over my soreness, which will be in a week, I am going to challenge Jackson to tight for
$2,600 a Bido I think that he will give
me a return. I won't believo that 1
am whipped until he does it again."
Jackson remains in the city for at
least four months to come, as he has
signed, with the California Athletic
Club to aot as boxing instructor for six
months. He says that he is willing to
meet Sullivan, Kilrain, or any other
pugilist; he thinks he can whip any of
them. '. ____.

New York, Dec. 30.—The following
dispatch from El Paso, Texas, is published this morning:' 'El Paso is greatly
excited over news that has been received of a great clerical rising in the
city of Mexico and the utter and bloody
defeat of the clericals that took place
yesterday. At 8 o'clook on Thursday
night, it seems, Father Jose Gaspera,
a well-known priest, hurried to the National Palace and aaked immediate and
secret conference with President Diaz.
What he disclosed is not known, bnt a
few minutes afterwards warrants of arrest were made out for a large number
of prominent people. But when officers went after them not one could be
found. At 11 o'clock that night an immense mob attacked the National Palace. The conflict was fierce and bloody,
but the government held its own snd
gained a victory. Three generals and
several high officers were killed, , The
government took over 1000 prisoners at
tho first fighting. Seventy-two priests
were among the slain, who numbered

next day 200 additional priests were

them an archbishop. A number of women got op petitions to have them reprieved, but it is not thought they
have met with success. Great excitement prevails in Chinhuhua, where
Govenor Laura Osrillo at once called
the state legislature together and ordered all priests to be arrested. It
seems to hare been the last effort of
the clerical party against the government,"

Concluding a retrospect of- the
yesr, the Winnipeg Sun says: "No
one is heard discussing the prospects
of emigrating. All seem to be well
satisfied with their present home.
Our merchants arc hopeful They
tell of increased business, of a
less stringent money market, and of
notes promptly paid. Loan companies speak of few renewals and
the tale of mortgages unredeemed
is rarely heard. All Manitoba now
requires is a reign of peace; all she
asks is to be let alone and permitted
to work out her own destiny. Her
own-people will advertise her; her
wonderful prodigies in the production of grain will attract what is
her only present need—more Bottlers. With a fair field and no
favors, Manitoba will be heard from
in a very few years and will assort
herself as 'the keystono of that
mighty arch of provinces extended
from the Atlantic to the Pacific,'
about which Lord Dufferin so proudly spoke. The inhabitants of our
province are a sturdy, enterprising,
pushing people, generally pervaded
by a spirit of honesty and frankness.
There are signs that the spirit of
enthusiasm, which in the past has
been their chief characteristic, is
rapidly giving place to soundness
and maturing of thought. As the
province grows and crystallizes into
proper shape, so will her people assume the same mould. The retrospect is over. Although the year
has not been one of pronounced
prosperity, it has been one of fair
average progress, sufficient to make
us lift our hearts und voices in the
song,' Praue God, from whom all
blessings flow.'" There is not much
hankering after annexation in the
foregoing, and Manitoba has been
quoted by American "assimilators"
as having no hope save in annexation.
Various and contradictory are the
views  held   and   expressed on the
much ventilated subject of   woman
suffrage.   In conservative England,
and  among  the "lords temporal,"
too,   this  disturbing  question has
divided tbe house, so to speak.   Tlie
Duke of Argyle, facetiously  known
in the north nf Scotland as the "red
bantam," says an   exchango,  holds
strong views as to tho subjection of
women, nnd was accustomed to tell
his audiences at popular lectures in
Edinburgh that   " a woman has no
right to appear upon a platform except when she is about to be hanged
—then it is unavoidable," much to
the delight of his  fellow-bantams,
Tho duke, being truly loyal, did not,
of course, extend his limitation to
the sovereign; the freedom of the
throne snd the freedom of tho scaffold were thus open to men and women alike.   The duke had to bear a
good deal of  chaffing  comparisons
with respect to his own womenkind,
especially  with  his mother-in-law,
the notable Duchess of Sutherland,
who was in the eyes of some as much
his superior mentally as  she  was
physically.   In common with most
of his brother Whig landlords, the
duke has recently sworn  off from
Mr. Gladstone and been effusive in
his adhesion to Lord Salisbury; and
now his new love has wounded him
in bis tenderest spot.    Speaking at
Edinburgh recently the prime  minister said:   " I earnestly hope  that
tho day is not far distant when women also  will  bear their share in
voting for members  of  parliament
and hi determining the policy of the
country.   I can conceive no  arguments by which they are excluded,"
Speaking of  woman suffrage, the
ladies of Boston lately availed themselves of the municipal franchise to
tho number of 20,000. The occasion
was the election of the board of aldermen anil the committee on schools
for tbe ensuing year.   A merica thus
describes the situation; "The mayoralty, tho board of aldermen, and the
committee  on schools being under
the control of Roman Catholics, the
work of undoing the  Reformation,
setting aside the Protestant colonisation of America, surrendering the
fruits of the Revolution, and generally going back on the truths of history, was begun by kioking Swinton's
History  out  of the public schools,
and  reprimanding   an   American
school-teacher who had dared to tell
his pupils that the Roman Catholic
ohurch had ever sold indulgences."
We take the above extract from a
long article on the subject in America.   Commenting on the election,
America says:   "A Protestant Re

Apropos of the discussion about
convict labor, we quote the following taken from Boston Budget:
"The necessity of labor for human
happiness is at present strikingly
shown in tho state prisons of New
York. Owing to some neglect by
the legislature the convicts are left
without employment, The result is
a great increase in insanity. Ono
of the physicians recently resigned,
giving as a reason that constant
idleness would produce a condition
of misery that he would be powerless to alleviate. Besides, as men
aro constantly going insane, the
danger to keepers, physicians; and
attendants greatly increases. While
kept at work, comparatively few become sick, and only occasionally
does ono become insane. Idleness
has filled the hospital, and an average of three every week become unmanageable and are sent off to the
insane asylums. It really seems
that when a convict is sentenced to
a term of years at hard labor ho is
entitled to relief if the conditions
are not in all respects fully complied
with. Confinement in idleness may
indeed be so much worso than confinement at work as to come within
the list of cruel and unnsual punishments forbidden by the United
States constitution." A- phase of
the subject is presented here whioh
must be kept in view when discussing the whole subject of convict
labor. The state assists in making
many of its criminals, and for that
reason, and in any event, owes them
a duty, after they are incarcerated,
as well as it does to society in incarcerating them. It may bo laid
down as a prime condition, that the
convicts, both in the jails nnd penitentiaries, should and must be em-
played continuously at something,
as much for their own good as oh
grounds of economy. It then becomes incumbent upon the state to
so arrange matters, if possible, as
that the labor of its convicts shall
bear injuriously upon no particular
class or section of the community.
Except in the case of the commonest
sorts of labor, such as street and
road work, the convicts should not
be brought into competition with
freo labor, In other Words, the
products of skilled penitentiary
labor should not be put upon the
market at a lower rate than the
same grade hi goods made by free
mechanics, nor should the market be
indiscriminately flooded within circumscribed bounds, nor with such
articles us would affect most injuriously the legitimate and ordinary industries of the country. We
believe that, in some way, the penitentiaries could be bo administered
that the convicts would be continuously employed, without tho infliction of injurious competition upon
the mechanic or laborer. So far,
the problem has not come home to
us with any force in this province,
as the improvements in the penitentiary grounds, and supplying the
needs of the institution, have kept
the convicts busy; but this atate of
things can hardly last, and a consideration of the subject is not out
of placo.
Mr. T. C. Berchard, publio school teacher; Norland, writes: "Daring the fall
of 18811 ava. much troubled with biliousness and dyspepsia, and part of the time
was unablo to attend to tne duties of my
profesaion. Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cnre was
recommended to me, and I have much
pleasure in stating that I wu entirely
cured by using one bottle. I hare not
had an attack of my old complaint since,
and hare gained fifteen pounds in weight"

A STOMOj NOAH.
Among my tour-year-old daughter's
birthday gilts waa tho lamiliar toy
known as "Nosh's ark," nnd Its wooden
Inmates .mre an Immediate and deep
delight.
The day after her birthday she sat on
the floor and began the arrange -,*{nt ol
A long procession.
"One woman hadn't any man to go
with," she said.
"I think you'll find another In the
ark," I suggested, without looking up.
"What Ssn ark?" ahe aaked.looking
sharply for Noah ot ens of tbe boys.
"PThe ark," I lepllsd, wss a sort ol a
boat like a houw, for a low people to
live In when God drowned all the rest
because they were wicked."
"Here's the other man 11 can tell the
men by their hats, The men's hats are
black and the women's are blue. How'd
he drown them?"
"He made it rain forty days IB * forty
°gM"yi didho. Awful beat Bard's
It could pour?"
It now occurred to me that ln the
multiplicity ol other duties we had neglected the story of the flood, and that
here was a good time to tell It.
"Would you like to hear about It?" I
asked.
"Oh, yes, mammal" sho exclaimed
with a child's eagerness for a story, and
promptly deserting her play sho seated
herself in her little rocker.
"A long time ago/'I began—   .„   -
"Csn yon renumber It, mamma t"
"No. It wu long before Icu remember."
"My I It-wii be
iloat Usm ByoB
"tbo twenty*
seven i**ri**Adtod years I should say."
I began again: "A long time ago the
world was lull of very wicked people
who wonld not obey God but did every.
thing to displease him"—
"What did they do so awful?"
"Why, I suppose they were unkind to
ich other and told wrong stories, and
did otherdreadfulthings, t'o after wait
ing a long time for them to grow better
God became discouraged"—
"What's discouraged?"
"When I say GodTrecamo discouraged
I mean he thought there wss no use
saying anv more to make these people
good, and that he might as well destroy
them."
"What's destroy?"
"To destroy anything means to pnt
an end to it God thought he must
kill these people and so put an end to
them."
"All ol them?"
"Yes all of them."
"Little girls?"
"Yes, I suppose thoy wen wicked too.
You know little girls are sometimes
" saucy to their mammas and nnkind to
their brothers snd sisters and don't love
to go to Sunday school."
"If tholr mammas keep them home ior
ioar they'll catch tho whooping cough,
then what?"
(This was s recent experience,)
"Of course that would not be wrong.
Yon needn't Interrupt me so much, I
can't tell a story if yoa talk all the
Ume."
"Well, I wont talk any more. Goon,
mamma."
"So God sent a great flood to drain*,
everybody,"
"What's s flood?"
"So much water that It covets the
around, and gets Into the houses and
docs a great deal of harm. But Noah
and his wife were good, and so wero
Noah's eons and their wives, and God
wanted to save them. So he told Noah
to make an ark—"
"Did God use to talk to (oiks'?"
"Yes, sometimes, and sometimes he
sent sn angel."
"Mamma, angels don't have to wear
any clothes," uid my auditor irrelevantly.
"What makes yon think that?"
"Why. I've seen them in pictures and
they only have to wear wings and a
sheet sround them."
"I thought you were hot going to talk
until I finished my story."
"Wall, I'm not, msmma,"
"Nosh worked a long time bnlldlng
ths ark. and he made It lust as God told
him, and he was careiul to have it
strong enough to keep out the water,
and f presume nil his neighbors thought
he was wastingtime ana work and was
vet}, foolish. But Nosh believed God.
an*r when everything was ready he and
sll il. family went into the ark, taking
will them two animals ol every kind

conld be hurt, 11 began to rain very
hard, all day and all night for forty days
snd nights, until the houses were covered
and the trees snd tbe highest mountsins
snd until svery one was dead except
those In ths srk."
"I ahonld think God WOOld tt *0*r»

"Probably he was sorry for them all.
Bnt he knew what was best to do and
ths little bsbles would have grown to
bo wicked men and women. Alter the
rain stopped the water began to get
lower and lower, and alter a while Noah
wanted to find out 11 the water was
gone, so he let a bird fly out ol the srk.

"Did he know tbowatst -niconot"

"The Osbomo family muddle" is
thus made conspicuous by the Madison,
Ohio, Journal:
I,. Oabonte ol this city has married
bis grandlalher's second wile, ond thoy
have a eon. Give this simple statement
and a number ol peculiar family relationships mny be deduced. For
instance, Mr. Osborne Ib s grandchild
of his wife. His son, being also a son
of his own lather, Osborne becomes
a brother to hia uncles and aunls, and
also a stepfather to them. The boy,
being the child of Osborne aa a grandson, is thereby a great-grandson of his
own mother, whilo bis father may rejoice in the title of great-grandfather to
bis own child. Thus the boy becomes
a grnndunclo to himself and his parents'
great-grandchild. Osborne is the boy's
lather and- great-grandfather at the
same time, and, being tbe husband of
his own grandmother, enjoya tbe
destiuction of being bis own grandfather as well. Osborne's mother married n man natnod Blake, and his sister
married a brother In-law of her motlior,
Honry Blake. Osborne's sister bo-
comes a sister to her own mother.
Mrs. Blake, being Osborne's mother is
grandmother to Osborne's son. The
latter, however, being a son of the wile
of Mrs. Uluko's father-in-law, is therefore a brother to his grandmother and
grandunclo to his grandmother's sister,
the daughter who married Mre. Blako's
brother-in-law. He also is hor nephew,
ss the son of her brother. Osborne is
the younger Mrs. Blake's grand-father
u sell sa ber brother. Thus her
aepbe*, OAotrle'e son, becomes e-tie
to ina •unt, being a son oi hor grandmother. This series of relationships
may bo likewise traced almost indefinitely. The family are happy and
contested and live pleasantly.
TnMIM Be Bed 'tm.
Over In Petosky, Mich., a lady rubbed
phosphorus on her bunion, presumably,
to ease her pais, and then retired to her
downy couch. Along in the night her
husband, who was a drinking man, by
tho way, thought ha saw a fiery eye
looking at him. He imagined that he
saw a frightful winged monster with
one blazing eye, staring st him; snd
alter standing it as long as ho could, be
decided to kill it. Slowly he reached
under the bed till he found his bootjack, and alter spitting on hia hands,
he whaled away. Tho next moment
his poor wife gave a yell tbat nearly
lifted him out of bed, but when he
found out the true state of affairs, he
was immensely relieved, even though
bis wifo has been obliged to walk on
crutches ever since.—Peck's Sun.

Mr. Sala tetls a characteristic anecdote
about n French laundress. During tho
Paris Exhibition of 1S7S ho had lost a
shirt, or something equally important
The Uanchisseusc protested lier innocence, and, in spite ot all that was said,
the article was not forthcoming; it only
remained to pay ths bill. In it the
missing shirt stood charged among the
items. The charge was objected to;
but the washerwoman shifted her
ground to meet the new attack—"All I
know Is, monsieur, that I washed tbe
thing before I lost It."

A Contradiction.
When people lose their tempers thoy
are apt to eay things that are contradictory. Two New York gentlemen
got into a quarrel at their dura. Finally
ono ol them, who believes in the code,
said excitedly:
"You are a low blackguard and an
nnmitigated scoundrel. Now, sir, it
you are a gentleman and a man oi
honor, you know what yon have to do.
Here is my card."

Eles they aro gathering in June some-

of the night snd run for the doctor.

Teachers* Institute.
Tho first session of the third New
Westminster Teachers' Institute waa
held in tho high school room this forenoon, commencing at 10 o'clock. H,
M. Stramberg, M. A., in the chair.
After disposing of some routine business, Mr. F. E. Morrison, teacher of
tlio Langley school, read a paper on
geography, making somo good suggestions for the instruction of pupils in
this branch. A discussion then took
place in which a number uf teachers
took part. At tho conclusion of the
debate H. M. Stramberg, M. A,, addressed the meeting nt some length;
showing the advantages that teachers
could derivo from an association such
as the institute.
New Wear Numbers.
A good many of our provincial co-
temporaries excelled themselves in
getting out extra large papers for New
Year's, The News and the World did
creditably for Vancouver, the Colonist
issued what was undoubtedly the neatest supplement of the season, and the
Kamloops Sentinel (weekly) made a
good showing with an extra sheet for
the interior and the mining Interests.
Our excellent cotemporary, tho Viotoria Times, intimated that it was
spreading itself this yesr to increase
the value and efficiency of its regular
issues. We must confess to having
a sneaking notion of the sort ourselves.
Theso heavy numbers are very good, if
the regular issue ia kept up to the
highest practicable standard, but
otherwise the compensation seems insufficient. An eastern cotemporary,
speaking of the Urge number of holiday numbers flowing from the press,
at this season, confesses to a feeling of
"tiredness" and fears that that sort of
thing is being overdone. We shall
not express any opinion on this point.
It may be a question of "sour grapes"
with our critical cotemporary. Commencing with to-day, we shall Bpread
-over the next few weeks, in quantities
suited to the public digestion, our annual resume of the improvements and
industries of tho royal city particularly, aa well as other notes. These will
make a very good showing, us will be
seen by tlie first instalment iu another
column.
Canada's  Fisheries.
The great value of the so-called
black cod fisheries on our Pacific coast
have for some time past been discussed as one of the dormant resources
of Canada that might some day bo
profitably developed. Reports more
or less conclusive of successful visits to
the banks had led to blight but some-
what'uncertain anticipations of good
results in the future. Now, however,
a practical trial has been made by experienced men with suoh successful
results as to have no room for any suspicions that the provious reports had
been exaggerated by too sanguine
prophets. Tbat two schooners man-
nod by experienced fishermen from
our Atlantic coaat should bave returned to Victoria, B. 0., with full cargoes
of thia valuable fish as the reiult of
their trawling, places the yield of
these banks beyond a peradventure,
There seems also no doubt as to the
commercial value of the catch. Under
these circumstances there is good reason to believo that hardy Canadian
fishermen will avail themselves of this
opportunity, and on the Pacific Ocean
Canada will acquire the same renown
for iti fisheries as it has lon-* enjoyed
on the Atlantic Ocean. By sea and
land further knowledge seems ever to
afford fresh proof of the great natural
wealth of our country. Of course
there ii a slight drawback tbat this
wealth excites the envy and invites
the aggressions of the covetous. The
productiveness of our Pacific fisheries,
now beginning to be properly appreciated, and of our Hudson Bay fisheries,
the value of which has apparently been
recognized hitherto only by foreigners,
is an additional reason why Canada
ihould be cautious as to making concessions to foreign fishermen, who will
undoubtedly strain to the utmost any
privileges that we may be induced to
grant,—Toronto Empire,

CORRESPONDENCE.
A Few Saber KeOectlons.
Editor Columbian.—Now that the
holidays are past, and there will be a
chance to settle down to sober thought,
it might not be amiss to review some of
the sayings and doings of ourselves and
others, under the extra excitement of the
roast beef and plum pudding, saying
nothing of the other exciting causes
which abound In new communities.
Your Vanoouver contemporaries have
outstripped everything in the shape of
a local exhibition of hopei and prospects
for the future. According to these
hopeful journals, Vancouver is to be the
hub of all creation, the great distributing
centre, not only for B. C, bnt for
"China, Japan and India to the west,
and England and all Europe to tbe east."
I am not disposed to quarrel with these
yonng giants of the terminal oity about
the size of the potatoes, cabbages, cauliflowers, etc., which B. C. Is capable of
railing; and the fine applet, pears, etc.,
whioh can be grown in the Fraser valley;
but when I come to the wild assertion
tbat "B. 0, Is capable of producing more
fruit than Canada and the U. 8. combined," I am disposed to question the
prophetic genius of the writer, and can-
not help thinking that ho must have
been under the inspiration of something
stronger than soda-water, As an antidote to such extravagant ravings the
writer on "Fruit and Horticulture"
should grub and plant an sore in "Stanley Park" in fruit trees, and wait the
result. In the meantime he could try
his band at raising some of the mammoth
vegetables we read about, and by tho
time that his orchard was producing
enough to help swell the great export
trade of which by inspiration he has
caught such a vivid glimpse, no doubt
"-nr--"   "a	
his head will be "silvered o'er with age
and long experience will have made him
•age."   _aa^       Pumpkin,
Home Energy, Home, Capital uud Home
Talent, aad met Foreign Capital,
Fathers ear Progress,
New Westminster has shown by the
rapid strides it has made during tho
post two years that its many natural
advantages aro doing for the Royal
City what foreign capital and inflation
aro doing for other cities. The wonderful growth New Westminster has
mado during tho year just closed is
hardly known to our own people. In
the business portion of the city tho
changes which have taken place were
easy of note, but it is on the outskirts
and in the suburbs that the progression
is most noteworthy and surprising.
For lack of funds tbe city has been
unable to open out new streets and
clear them of the trees, stumps and
logs with whioh they have been encumbered for centuries. But tho energetic
lot-owner has not been deterred by
these drawbacks and has managed to
build even among the stumps and logs
the homo which in a few years will ho
a perfect and lovely paradise. The
value of business blocks erected during
1888 does not equal that of the previoui year, but in residential buildings,
the true sign of a city's prosperity, a
greater number wero erected during
the year than tlio grand total for the
three years previous. Plans are now
in preparation for a number of tine
blocks to be built during the year we
have, now entered on, and, as dwelling
houses are still at a premium and in
great demand, it is almost certain that
tho Royal City has entered on a year
of progress and prosperity whioh will
completely eclipse the past The following list, which includes most of the
structures erected during the year will
give a fair impression of our substantial advancement;

As near as can be ascertained by
careful investigation 175 dwelling
houses and buildings haye been erected during the past year. But although
this number may appear large it is
asserted by thoso who are in a position
to know that a large increaso will be
made over these figures during the
present yoar. One architect alone has
already received orders to prepare
plans and specifications for $50,000
worth of buildings.
Tuesday night fire broke out in the
