A woman near "Ventura, Oal.,

the ambition to pet up a special
"boom" and mako a million, if possible. So sho chartered a train
from San Francisco, 600 miles away
gave a free ride, a free lunch and
freo music to all who would come,
and held a big sale. But though
tho train was crowded with people
from Sun .Fraucisco, no one would
buy; and instead of making a fortune sho lost $20,000. All of
which proves, says nn exchange,
that land booms are very uncertain

Whilo the Panama canal project

Nicaragua has just been approved
by President Cleveland, and tho
officials of the company say that
formal organization will nt ence be
e.ompletod, and that work will proceed in earnest on the isthmus with
the least possible delay. The gov-
ernment has no financial intorest in
the undertaking, and will be asked
for no guarantee, the expectation be-
insf that no difficulty, will ba found
in securing private capital sufficient
for tin' accomplishment of the work.

Canadian Baptist describes a visit
he paid lo some of them. The men
mid women are dressed in native
costume, wMi bare feot, and the
men had their heads shaved in the
heathen stylo. In answer, to the
interrogations of the visitor, they
euid Lliey lived in native houses, ate

may bo formed of the judgment of

there an assault was committeed on
a twelve year old girl. The criminal
cscapedand the crime was attributed
to Loftus. Early ono morning a
body of men called at his brother-in-
law's houso and demanded admittance. Loftus was seized, bound
hand and foot, thrown into a waggon and conveyed live miles across
the prairio. There every preparation had been mado for avenging
the crime. Loftus was pulled from
the waggon, dipped into a hogshead
of lukewarm tar and then covered
from head tn foot with chicken
feathers. It was proposed to set
lire to him, but just when the light
was being upplied Loftus broke and
made a dash for liberty. He was
closely pursued, but in tbe uncertain
light of the wiriy morning, and while
the bullets ere whizzing round his
head, he cfi'ected his escape, Reachi-

he secured his clothes and made off

HARRISONS   INAL'Ot'RATIO.V.
Washington, March 4—Thero was
a stir and bustle about tho city ut an
early hour. By nine o'clock tho blare
and beat of drums was heard in overy
direction from tho civic and military
organizations marching to their respective rendezvous. Immense througB
are on the streets and good humor ia
overywheie. By ten o'clock, the hour
for the military to move, tho windows
and seata or stands along tho line of
inarch began to receive occupants, and
half an hour later both Rides uf Pennsylvania avonue, from tliu Executive
Mansion to the Capitol, was lined with
a surging mass cf humanity. Probably 100,000 visitors and as many
more residents were along the march
and despite tho lone-in^ weather the
whole scene was gi y nnd animated.
At 10:30 tho first division, General
GibBon com roan d i ng, consisting of
4000 troops of the regular army, cavalry, infantry, artillery, and the
national guard 1 f the District of Columbia, whicli v,-u3 tho escort of the
retiring chief m ^iatrateond presidentelect to the Capitol, was in line waiting in tho vicinity of the Executive
Mansion, while the other five divisions, consisting of various s'ate
militia and civic organizations had
rendezvous in the vicinity of tho Capitol. At 10:45 tlid word of command
wus given and the first division began
to march towards the Capitol. At the
entrance to the house and senate cordons of polico kopt back tho crowd.
When the doors opened the visitors
began pouring iu aud the alleys filled
up quickly. Cuuches had been placed
in tho senate chamber in a semi-circular space in front of the platform occupied by the presiding officer. In
the centre of this space were placed
seats to be occupied by the the president and president-elect. Before
11 o'clock, when the senate doors
were opened, the publio galleries were
nearly full. At 11:15 the s: mite was
callod to order by Senator Iugalls, and
tlie senators arose as Iho diplomatic
corps entered. Many wotq in military
attire, tho Chinese in silken robes, and
tho Coreans wiih their fancy birdcage
hats. The members 1 f the corps were
shown seats iu tho lirst two rows on
tho west sido of the ohamber, Shortly
after the members of tho cabinet, ac-
cnmprtnied-jby tbo retired generals of
the army, the commanding major-general of the army, and tho admiral of
tho navy, entered and were Bhown
Beats in the semi-circle in front and to
tho left of the presiding officer. The
members of the supreme court, clad in
black silk mbes, led by Chief Justice
Fuller, took corresponding seats on
tho'bpposito side of the chamber.
Venerable Hannibal Hamilton, the
only living ex-vice-president, wus
seated at the right of the presiding
officer. Shortly before twelve the
members of the house of representatives and members-elect, led by
Speaker Carlisle, entered the senate
chamber and took seats on tho right of
the chair next the diplomatic corps.
Before noon President Cleveland was
announced. He entered escorted by
Senator Corkrell of Missouri. A moment later the president-elect was announced. He entered with Senator
Hoar uf Massachusetts. Both Cleveland and Harrison were greeted vociferously with applause as they took
their seats directly in front of tho presiding oflicer. At noon the vice-president-elect was announced and was
escorted to the platform of the pro-
siding officer by Senator Cullom of
Illinois. Every one iu the chamber
arose and remained standing while
Senator Ingalls admhiis'crod to Morton the oath of office. Iflghlls then
addressed the senate iu an ;.blo speech.
His remarks were a|.]>!,uid-.d from the
galleries where s;it Mc#dnnies Harrison,
McKee, Russell, Norton, liigalla,
Harrison, Miss In^aJla nnd others for
whom tho pi* v u'-! ery was reserved,
Ingalls then ', ■ - d the gavel to Morton, who thi . :;i*ned the position of
presiding 01 : mut callod the senate
to order in e> I r 1 session, A prayer
wu then offered hy Chaplain Butler.
Morton then addressed the senate.
At the conclusion of lm speech the
new senators were in and the messnge
of the president convening the senate
in extra session was thon read. Tho
vice-president then announced it would
proceed tu the eaat front nf the Capitol whore the president nf thu United
States would he sworn in. Tho pro-
cession was then formed, led by Marshall A. A. Wilson, and proceeded
through tho rotunda of (ho Cnptt.-I,
through the main entrance of I lio e.r.t
front aud out upon the great platform
erected on thu central portico. As
the president and president elect up-
poured tremendous choeritig was raised
from the deiue throng surrounding
tho platform steps and portico.
Cleveland and Harrison wero seated
in the front stand and tho chief guests
on the right and the sorgeant-at-arms
of the senate on tho left. When sll
wss seated Harrison arose and the
chief justice administered the rath of
oilice. The crowd remained standing
with uncovered heads ami ns Harrison
bowed Ins head and kissed tho open
book the crowd cheered again and
again. President Harrison then began his inaugural addre«. He said in
brief 1
HAIUMSOX's ADDltESS.
There is no constitutional or legal requirement thnt the president shall tako
the oath of oilice in tlio presence of the
people, but there is so much appropriateness In the public Induction to office of
the chief executive officer of tho nation
that from the beginning of the government tho people, to whose service the
official oath consecrates the office, have
been called to witness the solemn ceremonial oath taken. In the presence of
the people it becomes a mutual covenant.
The office covenants to serve the whole
body of the people by faithful execution
of the laws, so that they may be an unfailing defence and security of those who
respect and observe them, and that neither wealth, station, nor power of combinations, shall be able to evade their
just penalties, or to wrest them from the

beneficent  public  purpose to servo the
ends of servility and of selfishness.   My
Eromise is spoken, yours is unspoken,
ut not less real and solemn. The people
of every state have thoir representative;
not all of our people are happy and prosperous; not all virtuous and law-abiding,
but on the whole the opportunities offered to individuals to secure the comforts
of life are better than found elsewhere.
Largely bettor than wero here a hundred
years ago. The argument was formerly
made that the benefits of a protective
policy was to particular classes or section?,
If'the question became in any sense or at
any time sectional, it wus only because
slavery existed in some of the states.
But for thia, there was no reason why
the cotton-producing states should not
have led or walked abreast witli the New
England states in the production of cotton fabrics. There was this reason only
why the statea that divide with Pennsylvania the mineral measures of tho great
south-eastern and central mountain
ranges should have boen so lardy in
bringing to the smelting furnace and to
the milt the coal and iron from their near
opposing hillsides. The mill lircs were
lighted at the funeral pile of slavery, tho
emancipation proclamation heard in the
depths of tho earth, as well as in the
sky; men made free, and material things
became our bettor servants. The sectional element haa happily been eliminated from the tariff discussion. I do
not doubt that if those men in the south
who now accept tho tarifl views of Clay,
and tho constitutional expositions of
Webater would courageously avow and
defend their real convictions, they would
not find it difficult, by friendly instructions and co-operation, to make the black
man their efficient and safe ally, not only
in establishing correct principles in our
national administration but preserving
for their local communities the benefits
of social order and economical and honest
government at least until the good offices
of kindness and education have been
fairly tried. The contrary conclusion
cannot bo plausibly urged. I havo altogether rejected the suggestion of a speculative policy for any section of our country. Our naturalization laws should be
amended so as to make intjuiry into the
ohoractor and good disposition of persons
applying for citizenship more careful and
searching. We have happily maintained
a policy of avoiding all interference with
European affairs. We aro only interested
as spectators of their contentions in
diplomacy and in war; ready to uso our
friendly offices to promote peace, bub
never obtruding our advice and never
attempting unfairly to coin the distress
of other powers into commercial advantages to ourselves. Wo have a just right
to expect that our European policy will
be the American policy of European
courts. It is so manifestly incompatible
with those precautions for our peace and
safety, which all great powers habitually
enforce in matters affecting them, that
tho shorter waterway between par eastern and western seaboard should be dominated by any European government, thai
we may confidently expect that such purpose will not be entertained by any
friendly power. Wc shall in the futUK',
as in the past, use every endear:? to
maintain nnd enlarge our friendly relations with nil great powers, bet tboy
will not expect us to look kindly upon
nny project tbat would leave i. subj :ci to
tbe danger of hostile observation or environment. We have not sought to
dominate or to absorb any of our weaker
neighbors, but rather to aid and encourage them to establish f wo and stable governments^ Resting upon the consent of
their own' people wc have n clear right
to expect the report that no European
§ovci niueut will seek to establish colonial
ependencies upon the territory of independent American states. Our citizens
domiciled for purposes of trado in all
countries, nnd in many of tho islands of
the sea demand and will have our adequate cnro in their personal and commercial rights. The necessities of our navy
require convenient coaling stations and
dock and harbor privileges and wo will
feci free to obtain these by means that
do not in any degree partake of coercion
however feeble the govornmeut from
which we ask auch concessions. But
having fairty obtained them for purposes
entirely consistent with the most friendly
disposition towards all other powers, our
consent will bo necessary to any modification or impairment of the concession.
We shall not fail to respect the flag of
any friendly nation and shall exact Tike
treatment for ourselves. Cooluess, justice and consideration should characterize
our diplomacy, or of friendly arbitration
in proper cases, shou'd be adequate to
the peaceful adjustment of .ill international difficulties. By such methods wc will make our contribution
to the world's peace, which no nation
values more highly, and avoid the op-
probiuni which muat fall upon tho na-
tion that ruthlelessly breaks it. While
the treasury surplus is not tho greatest
evil, it is a serious evil. Our revenue
should bo ample to meet the ordinary annual demands on our treasury, with sufficient margin for those extraordinary
but scarcely less imperative demands
which arise now, then .he expenditure
should always bo made with economy
and only upon the public necessity. It
will bo tho duty of congress wisely to
forecast nnd estimate the extraordinary
demands and, having added them to
onr ordinary expenditures, to adjust
our revenue laws so that no considerable annual surplus will remain.
It is quito possible, I am sure, to effect
necessary reduction in our revenues
without breaking down onr protective
tariff or seriously injuring nny domestic
industry. The condition of a sufficient
number of modern war shins, and the
necessary armament, should progress as
rapidly as consistent with care and perfection In the plans of workmanship. Jin

THE EUROPEAN SITUATION.
London, March. 2.—The European
situation during the past few days has
assumed a more threatening aspect
than at uny period within the past two
years. Tho resignation of Premier
Crispi, the disorderly scenes in the
Hungarian Diet between tho anti-German aud pro-German factions and the
warlike news from tho Afghan frontier
have cast an uneasy feoling over diplomatic circles nnd suddenly changed the
optimietic feeling to a strong pessimistic one. The downfall of Premier
Crispi is the result of a revolt against
the continue policy of war taxes,

San Fiiaa'cipco, -uaroh 3.—Tho
boat race to-day between Wm. O'Connor, of Toronto, and Jacob Gaudaur,
of St, Louis, Mo., for n thousand dollar,-! i\ side and the championship <i
America, over a threo mile course oil
Alameda Creek, was won by O'Connor
in nineteen minutes and furty-lii-o
seconds. Although the day wus clear
and warm the race attracked less than
f< ur thousand people. At two minutes id four tliu men were sent awuy
by iho word "go" from Ref«rce Alfred Tuben of this city. The wai ot*
was then veiy choppy and a siift' brot.';i
was blowing. The Canadian tuuk thu
inside course, leaving Gaudaur the
the outside, which vas much tho
rougher. Off the rowers wont, pull-
in1.- steady and lung strokes. For a
minute the even pulling was maintained, then Gaudaur s strokes came quicker, but he wns unable to pass tho
champion. The latter pulled slowly
and with his natural eveness and woro
a look of confidence. Just as the
quarter mile was reached, and while
the men were still abreast of each
other, a small Bail boat crossed a few
yards ahead of Gaudaur's ekull. The
swell made by the passage of the sail boat
and the lumpy water swerved the skull
from its course and O'Connor skimmed
by. Gaudaur dipped his blades into
the water with the intention of getting
his boat back to its course and continuing tho race, but seeing O'Connor
fully twenty lengths in his lead, lie at
once realized thu hopelessness of attempting to overtake him and rested
on his oars. Immediately a murmur
of disappointment and dissatisfaction
went through the crowd. O'Connor
scarcely noticing that he waa now abmo,
continued tho same easy powerful
stroke that ho bad used from tbe beginning, and his skull fairly flew
through the water. All eyes were of
course centered upon him and although
tho crowd was thoroughly displeased,
mnny wero unablo to refrain from giving vent to expressions of admiration
of the champion's superb oarsmanship. After the stake boat was turned, however, the crowd began to disperse and only n few hundred witnessed tho finish. There was littlo betting
on tho race and but vory few dollars

When will the city council take
definite action in the matter of the
water works proposals laid before
tbat body fully a mouth ago? "We
have no desire to embarrass our city
fathers in the discharge of their
arduous duties, but, in common with
the citizens generally, we ure anxious
about this water works question,
upon which so much depends as to
the city's future well-being. It is
not necessary to repeat that we aro
strongly in favor of having the oity
supplied, iu somo way or other, with
the clear, cold, and inexhaustible
water of the Coquitlam Lake, nor to
reiterate our belief that a fair arrangement could he made with the
Coquitlam Water Works Oompany,
to that end, on tbe basis of the
proposals submitted by the company
last month, and published in this
paper at tlie time. We hope the
council will take this matter up
without delay, and give an opportunity for work to be ut least commenced, with a view to getting pure
water, facilities for sewerago, better
fire protection, and other benefits, at
as early a date as possible. If we
look at the question from a sanitary
point alone (which is undeniably the
most important), tlio necessity ia
urgent for safe drinking and using
water, and means for sewerage,
throughout the city. Oases of sickness are not wanting at present
(and one can call them to mind at
almost all seasons of the year)whicli,
from their nature, are fairly traceable to impure water and the utter
absence of anything like sewerage.
And we have not yet commenced to
suffer from this state of things. The
city is settling up rapidly, however,
and unless we do uot all wish to be
poisoned in our tracks in a very
short timp, it will be necessary to
have nn uncontaminublc and outside
source of water supply for tho city,
nnd, with that, a thorough system of
sewerage. Recognizing those facts,
and their true seriousness, we would
urge upon the council the propriety,
nay, the duty, of providing, with all
possible haste, for the welfare, in
this important respect, of this growing city, and for the health and safety
of its inhabitants.
According to the administration
report of Java recently laid before
the Dutch chambers, portions of that
island are being depopulated through
tigers. In 1882, the population of
a village in the southwest of the
Baulam province was removed and
transferred to un island off the coast
in consequence of the trouble caused
to the people by tigers. These ani
mats have now become an intolerable
pest in parts of the same province.
The total population is about 600,-
000, and in 1887, 61 were killed by
tigers, and in consequence of the
dread existing among the people, it
has been proposed to deport the inhabitants of tbe villages most
threatened to other parts of the
country where tigers are not so common, nnd where they can pursue
their agricultural occupations with a
greater degree of safety. At present they fear to go anywhere near
the borders of the forest. The people at 'present seem disinclined, or
they lack the means and courage, to
attack and destroy their enemy, although considerable rewards are offered by government for tlie destruction of beasts of prey. In 188S
the reward for killing a royal tiger
was raised to 200 florins. It appears also that the immunity of the
tiger is partly due to superstition, for
it isconsidercd wrong to kill one
uuloss he attacks first or otherwise
does injury. Moreover, guns wore
* always very rare in this particular
district, and sinco a rising a few
years ago, havo been taken away by
the authorities altogether.
A scheme  for  connecting   the
Bristol and English   Channels   will
be brought prominently before   tbo
English publio in the course of a few
months,   says  the  London Times.
The route fixed upon by the  engineers who have   recently   surveyed
the  distriot is  from   Stolford, in
Bridgewater  Bay, passing through
the towns of Bridgewater, Longport,
Ilminster, and Chard, to Seaton, on
the   English   Channel.   The  total
length of the canal will be about 45
miles, and with the exception of the
Chard   range  of hills, the work of
excavating, etc., for the wholo   distance will be comparatively easy, no
engineering difficulties   presenting
themselves.   The Chard district   is
formed   of  Has  (a species of lime
■tone), io by excavating through the
high ground an ample supply of lime
will be obtained, whioh will be useful  for the other portions of the
work.   The canal it intended to be
Jn every  way capable o'f admitting
tha   largest  mercantile    steamers
afloat, as well as the ships of war.
From a national point of view, therefore,  this new canal will be of im-
menwimporUnce-asBrUishironclads
would be able to steam across from
channel to channel In a couple of
houn, instead of having* as at present to go round the land's End.
The greatest benefit would also accrue to the trado of South Wales, for
when shipping to London and the
continent, by using this canal a distance of 300 miles would bo saved,
to say nothing of avoiding the great
risks to which vessels are liable
while sailing around this part of tbe
coast.
A very interesting story has come
to light, through a representative of
the Associated Press, who had his
information from a gentleman high
in authority in the prosecution of
the Y&rneil-Times case, of the way
in which tho conspiracy against Parnell was detected. The story constitutes one of the most romantic in
the history of politics, and, by emphasizing the precarious and difficult
position in which tho Times' charges
placed Parnell and his associates,
removes the reproach which some are
even now casting upon tho " uncrowned king," in tho light of his
recent triumphant acquittal, because
lin did not more speedily disprove
the charges made. The fact is made
apparent that the web of falsehood
was so well woven and so daringly
cast as to nearly overcome the Parnellites in its toils, and, but for the
clever aud fortunate discovery of
Egan, by which the conspiracy was
exploded, the Times would undoubtedly have won its case, notwithstanding the spuriousness of the letters. Up to July of last year, it is
stated, Parnell, his counsel, and colleagues, were wholly ut sea, nnd
every effort to discover the forger
and get nt the bottom, of the case
had proved futile. The discovery
that Pigott was the forger was made
by Egan, in Lincoln, Neb., while
Parnell, bis detectives and experts
were vainly trying to find a clue in
Great Britain. Egan was sorely
perplexed by tho forged letters, the
fao-siiriilies of which he got in the
London Times. Tho signature to
those attributed to bim was remarkably good. Expressions and odd
abbreviations peculiar to him were
in the text, but he could not imagine
who the forger might be. In scrutinizing the forged fuc-similies, however, he finally discovered that one
signed with his own name was written avowedly at a certain address in
Paris, and the recollection flashed
upon him that Pigott was the only
man to whom he had ever given it.
Pigott had written him asking for a
confidential address to which he
might send important information,
and Egan, concluding to learn what
it wns, secured this address, which
proved the key to the forgeries.
Egan, who is methodical in habit,
had saved his correspondence for
years. He searched his volumes of
letters until he found Pigott's. By
comparing them with the handwriting of the forged letters, he saw
ho had the forger. This wns the
important clue, taken in connection
with the fact, which Egan knew to
a demonstration, that Pigott had
been guilty of forgery before. Egan
went to Chicago, and with the assistance nf experts and his friend,
Alexander Sullivan, who is also a
solicitor, a brief was made out
against Pigott. Egan hud meanwhile ascertained the process by
which Pigott made the spurious letters. He found among his papers
somo letters written by him in which
entire sentences appeared that were
also in the forged letters. Pigott
had traced these sentences carefully,
word for word; then he interpolated
or added other sentences or phrases
completely changing the meaning of
the whole letter while preserving
the integrity of the portions. Tlie
dates were also changed to make
criminal interpolations, applicable to
illegal events. Egan also found
letters written by Parnell whioh bad
been similarly used. Photographs
of all these and of Pigott's begging
and blackmailing letters were enclosed with the originals in the
package, with memoranda recalling
to Parnell all the circumstances attending the writing or reception of
each. The precious package was
entrusted to Father iJorney.ayoung
Catholic priest, who conveyed it to
Parnell in July last. Until it came,
the Titties' case was us invulnerable
as it was fraudulent, Pigott, with
the sensitiveness of a guilty conscience, became aware that somo evidence had been procured against
bim, by certain questions that Parnell put to him in an interview, in
the presonce of Labouchero and
Lewis, but had no suspicion of the
overwhelming completeness nf that
evidenco until he got into Sir Charles
Russell's clutches. In despair he
mode a full confession of his forgeries
ond perjury, and then, like the arch-
betrayer, mndo an end of himself.
Itwasactoseshuve for tho Irish patriots, and even for tlie Liberal party.
Had Egan not made the discovery
he. did, the truth of tho letters could
only have been denied, but their
falsehood could not have been demonstrated. The situation would have
been a Times victory, and the victory of tho Times would havo meant
the ruin of Parnell, the Home Rule
party, and the infinite; discredit of
the Liberals. But Heaven had ordered otherwise.

MARTHY'S KISS.
When I went a-courtln' Martby
I was poor as poor could be,
But that didn't set boras'ln me,
ror she had faith In me;
Sho l:ncw I had (,-rit nn' courage,
An' wasn't the hind to shirk;
An' she was ready an' wlllln'
To do her share of work,
I remember our weddin' moram',
An' iiow sbe said to mo:
" You*™ poor an'I'm poor, Robert,
That's easy enough to see;
That is, us some folks reckon:
Uut our hearts are rich In lovo,
Ait* wo two'll pull together,
An* trust in the Lord above."
Then sho reached up an' kissed me,
An* snld, as she did this:
■ There's always moro whoro that come from,
Au' there's help sometimes In a Ides."
I toll you whut It Is, sir,
I felt as strong ag'ln
Aftor that kiss sho give me,
An' ] ]ost laid out to win.
An'! did it. We'vo money a plenty,
An1 the comforts It can give;
We've a bomo, an' wo'vo got each other,
An' a few moro yoars to live.
Whenever my hands got weary
I'd .think of tho woman at home,
Au' somehow'twould mako work easy
An1 light, till night time 'd come,
I toll you that kiss of Marthy's
Was bettor tban bags of gold.
Tharo's riohas some folks can't reckon,
Au' things that don't grow old.
I suouldn' t ha' been, without It,
The man that I'vo got to be,
Aa' Worthy shall havo tho credit
For tbe help she's been to mo.

A LIVELY COMBAT.
Attaoked by Moro Than a Score
of Sword-Flab.
They Nearly   Sink  Our Littlo   Craft by
Thoir Fierce Thrusts — Tremendous
rower of Whleh They Are Capable-Two Captured.
Wo woro a jolly party on board tho little
i*m ter yucht Kermadec ono hreezy aftornoon
in February, boating up from Wellington
ir .ouud Capo Egmont, in tho expectation of
limiting Now Plymouth harbor by tho noxt
morning. February ia a summer month
.vith us in Now Zealand, and our snug little
uiMft of about thirty tons burden, the property of a citizen of Auckland, by whoso
iioartesy tho present writer was a passon-
gierj was now out eleven days from Auckland on a cruiso around New Ulster. There
were half a dozen of us young men, besides
iho Scotch skipper, Bandy McGrath, ami
two sailors also from tho "old country."
Gulls, plaintively noisy that day, were
wheeling in our wake; a faint tingo of hazy
weather showed on the land board, and after
u time old Sandy, who sat on the tiller
quietly studying tho weather signs, remarked that there wore whales lu sight
uway to windward. Three or four marino
"lasses were immediately leveled in tho direction indicated, for on tho New Zealand
coast wbates aro not so plenty aa not to be
objects of interest.
"A matter of b!x miles off, Sandy!" observed Hugh Peyster, the crack shot of our
Aueltland rifle team, who loves nothing bettor than a sniff of sea air for a fow days.
"Aye, aboot that*" said tho skipper.
"Tboy uro a lively party, and uo mistake
about H," remarked Harry Lenfest, our
champion chess-player. "D'yo mind what
breaches thoy'ro making 1—just then, d'yo
boo thatt Clean out of seal and there again 1
What spouting, tool Whales are uot always quito as demonstrative ns that, oh,
Hkipporl"
" Noo," replied old Saudy, laconically. "A
frolic or a foight, nubbe. Right whales,
too."
Tbe sportive leviathans were on our course
up tho const, and after n few minutes wc
perceivod that they woro making down the
wind to meot us. From tliolr frequent
breaching and spouting, it was at first
thought that thero was a school of them,
but after ten or fifteen minutes'observation, Sandy said: "Tb'eer-sbuttwuof 'cm;
it's foigbtin', or soointhln's gallln' tham."
Just then, too, ono of the sailors wbo was
standing forward called out: "Sail-fish!"
'• Wheer awayi" cried tho skipper, turning
about suddenly, as if somo now idea had ns
suddenly dawned on his mind.
11 Port quarter, aft; big one, sir.'*
About a cable's length distant, nnd mov
ing rapidly up from astern lopass us on the
Ico board, a singular object was scudding
along, not altogether unliko Iho dirty, gray'
snilof some Uttle native canoe-only iu this
case thero -was no oauoo, merely tho sail-
two or three feet out of water, skimming
along at a great pace, and passing us even
while wo sat staring at it.
" Well, well, there's tlio sail, but wbero's
the boatl" laughed our jovial Dr. Wall, ou
this occasion a member of tho party.
"Making good timo right into tho wind's
oyo, too, eh," said Leufest, "Is thnt a
shark, skipper? and' where think he's
bound for, in such a hurry!"
"Noo, noo, 'tis nae shark; nac shark evor
lusted siccan book-fin as that. ' 'Tia a
swoord-flsb, my laddie, and he's makin' for
the whales. Theer's an auld grudge atweon
'em. Queer thing, bow theso salt creeters
will smull one nuttier oot, miles on miles
nwny."
"Another sail-fish, sir," called out the
mnn forward, and within tho next half-
hour, no lesB than six of these marine curiosities had come up and passed us, all in apparently tbe same tremendous haste and
bound on the samo courso. Meantime we
were noarlng the ocean leviathans. There
were but two of them, as old Bandy had
thought, two largo right wholes evidently
in trouble, for they wero constantly breaching and diving, and appeared to be cutting
viciously right and left with their flukes.
"The swoorders are teoklin' their ribs
for 'em," chuckled tho skipper. "But I'm
tbinkln' wo wad do us weol to sheer off.
'Tis no quarrel of oors, and thoy bo hcovy
laddies to run athwart a sum1 craft."
Ho set tho helm aport, accordingly, while
ns yot we wero threo or four cables' lengths
away, with tho intention of passing on tho
land sido of tho combatants. But tlie
marine giants woro by no means at rest, or
conflnoil to one placo In tholr wild flounder-
nigs, and boforo wo had timo to pass, one of
tbo fierce rushes of the struggle carried tho
battle directly across our bows.
MuGrutb put tho helm hard up, and
shouted to tho sailors to stand by to go on
Ihe othor tack, All tho rest of us sprang
forward, to get a hotter viow of the fight.
Immediately ono of tbe whales rose closo
under our bowsprit, and, with a deep sough
of its tltanio lungs, "blow" a great whito
jet of water high Into tho air—so near that
i lio spray of it fell tu our very faces.
Tho monster struck Its tall to right and
loft as It rolled and plunged downward
again, and hurled a dolugo of water aboard,
drouohing us to tbo skin In an instant, and
fairly bowling tho doctor ovor upon the
raised roof of tho littlo cabin.'
"Jupiter I" Lenfest exclaimed, laying
hold of tho doctor to sot him on his feot,
whilo wo all snupped for breath, and dashed
tho brine from our eyes. "How's that for a I
pi.ssiug salute! Bloody wator, too I Only'
look bore I"
Tho dock under foot was streaked with
blood; so was our olothing. Tho other
wbalo blew off the starboard quartor even
while wo were speaking, und rolling high,
emitted a deep grunt or bellow of singular
Neptunian cadence. I caught a gllinpso of
tho "8811'' fins* of three sword-Uah rolling
up Into view for a moment with tho whale.
We were In somo danger, nnd realized tho
fact, for if one of tho persecuted whales
should chance to breach closo under the
hull of a boat of tho Kormndoc's size, tho
results of a collision might be disastrous.
Wo held our breaths for a moment, knowing that tho leviathan was somowhero in
tho depths beneath our keel, and that iti
huge up-coming head might at any instant
butt us out of tho water liko u cork. Dut
tho dunger camo from nuot her source. For
fully a dozen Df Uio "sail" fins wero now
espied, cutting tlio water about the bull of
tlm littlo yacht, and a moment later wo felt
n nitwit, as If It had struck or grazed upon a
rock I So severe was the concussion that
several of tho party were thrown off their
foot- Tho tauter careened to port. There
camo a sensation ns If n dozen men were
tugging to haul her astern with a hawser-
wrench on wrench like a tremor of a screw-
propeller!
"My goodness!" muttered the doctor.
"The whale's afoul of us 1"
Then camo a final wrench, accompanied
by a cracking noise and the gurgle of water.
"Here,mon. Lay hauld o' the tiller!"
old Sandy shouted, and Peyster hastening
to do so, tho skipper dashed down into the
littlo cabin, The others were now far behind him, when it was discovered that
tho cutter was leaking dangerously. Water
was gushing in nt a place whore the wain-
acotting seemed to bo split to pieces.
"Fetch tho axel" old Sandy called out,
and when it was handed to him he knocked
away tho inner sheathing of finish work.
Three or four blows disclosed a holo
through tho cutter's sido planking through
which tho water was spurting In with gnut
force, a stream as large as the axe-handle.
Wo wero soon abio to calk It with Uid
sleeve of au old oilskin jacket, but had
hardly began to do so, when Hmmpc.imcu
second blow against tbe side, accompanied
by a rasping nolso immediately behind
whoro wo stood, seemingly back of the
threo or four steps whioh led down Into the
cabin. Again tho littlo croftt careened aud
shook liko a leaf, aud Peyster, appearing in
the gangway above us, called out that i hero
were moro than fifty of the "sull-lls,!.','
round the yacht, and that thoy wero coming
at hor full drive. No water had come
through from tbo last blow, but, on clearing away tho stops nnd Inside finish, about
a foot of a horny, serrated, pokcr-like shaft,
ub largo as a man's forearm, was discovered protruding through tho planking, and,
from tho tremor which was communicated
to the boat, It was evident that tbe fish was
hard and fast thoro.
Two more blows forward at onco distracted our attention, and ono of thoso started
a leak of euch size that several hogshcuds
of water must havo come in beforo wo could
gel to It and plug up tho hole. Meanwhile
Lenfest and Peyster haa taken their double-
barreled fowling-pieces and opened 11 ro nu
our assailants. Yet so far from being deterred by this noisy fusillade, tho enraged
sword-fish continued to charge at the cutter. Before the leak forward could bo
calked three fresh shocks further astern
were felt, and a littlo forward of tho stern
post on the weather side still another horny
gray-green "sword" was discovered, thrust
a foot through the sheathing. .
A singular scraping sound could be heard
directly under the keel, which was probably mado by tbe long dorsal fin as
tho excited fish darted beneath us.
Thus for half an hour or more this alarming contest wont on, and 1 should estimate
that not less than twenty thrusts into tho
sides of the yacht wore delivered by theso
marine swordsmen. Not all of them penetrated the thick shcathings, and only two of
tho fish actually remained stuck in the hole*
which thoy had made In the cutter's sides.
Wc could/wl them struggling to get free,
but took no steps to liberate them for tho
timo being.
Upon going on deck, after the nttack had
slackened somewhat, wo found our two
companions still shooting wherever a "sail"
lln showed in sight within a hundred yards
of tho yacht. They confidently asserted that
they had beaten off the sword-fish, having,
wounded with shot and bullets not less than
sixty of them.
Tho two whales had disappeared, und wo
camo to the conclusion that In tho heat o f
the contest with thom, tho excited and
angry sword-fish bad mistaken tho hull of
tho Kormadcc for tho bodies of tho cetaceans. They iu turn now gradually drew
off from us and disappeared, though several of them followed us for somo hours, us
if loth to glvo up tho controversy.
The two whoso excess of warlike energy
had led Uiem to attach themselves tn us beyond tholr power of retraction, at'tV/r^lcd
at Limes during the evening, uud acini;..-. u
grievous drag on our progress. But so deep
woro tbey beneath tho side ot tho yacht
that thero was uo pructieablo way or getting rid of thom,
Wo towed them into Now Plymouth harbor, whero wo arrived ourly tho fallowing
furouoon. Tho cutter was thou, careened,
und tho fish, along with their swords, withdrawn from their sheathing. By this time
thoy had becomo quito docile, uud woro
nearly lifeless. Both belonged to that
species of sword-fish which are commonly
called sail-fish in tho South Pacific, for tha
reason ulroady mentioned. These two
specimens wero eaoh about fifteen feet In
length, including the "swords," whicli
measured three feet four and three feet.

King, Queen, and so on, which suggosted
Thackeray's roinanco of "Tho Roso und the
Ring," nnd which wo have, unfortunately,
never had, nro swamped under the tide of
costumed dolls. In tho London Queen thero
aro some most eluborato hints ou doll-dresa-
ing, which suggest the comprehensive extent of this annual masquerade. Moro or
less completo directions are given for dressing dolls as Queen Elizabeth, the Empress
Josephine, Minos. Loclerc and Bacclochl,
who woro typical ladles of thoDIrectoIre;

Foods and Their Effects.
Somo of tho foods whleh havo a tendency

boiled eggs, barley and rice water, thickened milk, toast, mutton broth, rice, cornstarch, potatoes and other starch foods,

canal to action are! coffee, out-meal, Indian
meal, soups, beef too, sweet potutoui,
fruits fresh and stewed, green vegetable*,
molasses, beuns; graham, corn and Boston

and to givo riso to diarrhoea, the formation
of gas, and consequent discomfort and pain.

Missionary anniversary services
were held yesterday in the Methodist
church. Bev S. J. Thompson preached morning aud evening tol-trgo congregations. Tho rev. gentleman took
for his morning text Matt. 24: 11, and
spoke of God's purpose to save tho
world; of His plan for saving the
world; and oF the prospects oi ihe accomplishment of tho Divine  purpose.
The text, for the evening was Acts
10: 0, thu speaker calling attention to
the spiritual destitution of the world,
and by various facts and figures showing that tho church of Christ, li-.a the
means, if it woro consecrated lo -God,
to Epeedily send the Gospel to every
creature.
The services will bo continued this
evening when addresses on missionary
work will be given, and a choice niu-
Bical programme rendered by tho choir,

At Holy Trinity church yesterday
morning thu Venerable Archdeacon
Woods announced lhat ho had resigned
the rectorship of Holy Trinity, and
hnd nccepted the rectorship of St.
Mary's ohuroh, Sapperton. This announcement was recoived with regret
by the congregation generally.
Thn sernioii was preached by the
Rev. P. Woods who took hia text
from Mark Hth chap., 12th verse:
"And they went out and preached
that men should repent." Tho preacher
said that thu chief point to consider in
this text was repentance. Man having
sinned must repent or he need not expect to reach heaven. We must not plead
want of knowledge of what was expected of us, for tho means tire easy
and never wanting, Repentance is a
disagreeable thing but thnt is no excuse for leaving our sins uiuituned.
Tho timo will come when wo will bo
asked our reneons for not repenting,
but excuses will ho of no avail. God
ciented man for His glory, nud if man
had fulfilled tho purposes he was created for thero would be no cause for repentance, But man by an net of self
will does not allow himself to bo as
God ciented him, and therefore must
rupout. We have sinned and must
atone; and this repenhnce to bu fruitful mustbo real inUBt belasling, Repent
mice is u life long work and is nob ru-
atrieted to uny particular Benson. The
first step in repentance is sorrow and
we are promised that God will not despise a broken and contrite heart. Let
Us therefore repent nnd ask God to
give u-a a new and contrite heart.

At the Olivet Bnplist Church, yesterday morning, tho Rev. Thomas
Baldwin look for his text 10v, 28c.
Miitt.--,,Thon snid Jems unto Iheni,
Bu not afraid: go loll My hrethern
that they go into G.ililuo, aid (hero
they shall seo Mo"—and nffct r reading
the ninth verse iu connection with the
text, spoke upon thu "Brotherhood of
Christ," buim tnn tially as follows:
There never was a question, that agitated a small bind of people moro
than the Savior's going away agitated
His disciples. I hir fear and agitation
nre proportionate to the expectancy uf
the saored things wo hold, Christ Imd
gradually and tenderly, broken to His
disciples, tho question of His death in
the near future, of Hia going tu Jerusalem to eat the I'assovor, telling them
Ho would bu betrnyod and killed nnd
that lhe third day lie would rise
again, nud that their life would bu
sought by thoso who, in ex term ina ting
them hb His folio wow, would think
they weie doing God service. Added
to lhe fear of this, the disciples hnd
considerable anxiety ns to their future;
they had expected that He would respire the old Hebrew system and fn e
thom from the yoke or Rome and if
Ho failed how would it nfl'ect them/
He sees this; hencu lio fells them
(iu the 14th of John), "Let not your
heart bo troubled; yu believe in
God, boliove also in Me", &o. He
attys to thum, there arc bu many substantial reasons in all thu surruiind-
ings of uur intimacy,thntyuusliould believe My divinity, and My power, nnd
if 1 go away, I will send the Comforter:
it is necessary that I ahould go awny to
complete thu work; but I will send
Him, Tlii-iis tho first great pliaiu cf
the brotherhood of Christ, tliu thresh-
hold feature, in which Ho tukeB caro
(juBt as Hu in going across to tho other
world) tb show His unending interost
iu His disciples, thruwiug earthward
Ihuniuat precious promises and nst-ur-
tuicea, My dear friends, do we properly estimate nud spprcolato His good-
liess to ub1/ Further, His death hns
transpired, the agony was pained, thu
time had come fur tho fulfilment of thu
proof of His divinity; iho angel had do*
sounded, the stone had been rollud
away, thu earthquake had been full,
the lirst-fruits hud come forth; unguis
had taken possession of thu tomb lio
had Vacated, and invited inspection,
aud, turning to the women who in
their affright wero departing, had said
to thom, "Fear uot yo: for I know
who whom ye seek, He iH not here,
Huistiseiias Hu snid," Then — then
—the truth dawned upon them; fur
until now they hnd never properly con
ceived the principle of thu tes-
surivctioii; nnd thero nro tuns of
thousands of Christians to-dny, who
havo not properly conceived thu necessity of ihe resurrection of the body,
and hold in contempt thu Idea of what
will becomo of the body, Here was
Christ the lust-fruits, the first fjmit
that through corrupt mn had inherited
iticomiption, in whom death was swallowed up in victory, in whom mortality
had developed to glorification: but
havo wo lost Him iu the change! Has
the affinity to our raco disappeared, or
tho susceptibility of brotherhtiod thnt
Ho showed on thu wny to tho brother's
grave, when, seeing Mulbn nnd Mary
weeping, Hu wus troubled and groaned
iu tho agony of Mis spirit andwcptl
Is it the samo tones they hoar now, as
He meets them on tlio road to Gnlilee
and announces Hint Ho has left tho
tomb, nnd is now on tho other rido uf
tho valloy? Is it tho same tender
voice that now, when thoy cling to
His feot tn adoration, gently forbids
them to touch Him until Hu hns ascended, that told thom to go Into
Galileo and tell His disciples (especially Peter, lest he might be discouraged).'
Do we see the same Chriitly form and
features, do wo thus take hold and appreciate that He comes to us thus, iu
answer to ourfuith, do wo witness Hint
as the two disciples at Emmaus taw
Him, manifested iu the breaking of
bread in the cottage, prompting them
to leavo their unfinished muni und
hasten tn Jerusalem with the ruport
that "He is risen"? la it the same
get.lie friend, who, while they are in
the aet of reporting tn thu disciplea,
with closed dour*, in thu upper room,
appears in their midst/ 1 thick I seo
Htm sitting around in tho circle, having what they all thought, their belief and unbelief, hearing what Ttiomne,
Children Cryfor Pitcher'iCastoria
who had acted as apostolio coroner had
to say, Thomas who would havo been
a pour man to moke n Cfttholioxof, in
that ho would not put faith in what ho
had beon told they had just soon, but
said ho must seo for himself Him
whom they had placed in tho tomb, a
corpse, or ho would nevor boliove: yet
hearing all this, how tenderly He
says, "Thomas, come hero, examine
tho prints of the nails, examine again,
thrust your hand into my sido," and
Thomas, from tho examination, in surprised humiliation and adurntioii,
exehilmn, "0'Gdtl of me, O Lord of
me," and here tho brother/mod ot Ohmt
is again seen iu His attention in revealing himself to Ibis doubling heart,
and lins Ho not como in a multitude
of ways to you, revealing himself to
you a,s your Lord nnd your God—the
very risen oits? The speaker cited
other instances from Scripture in proof
of tho brotherhood of Christ and concluded: Recognize in tbo Lord Jesus
Christ, ''The Rose of Sharon" who
has passed the grave, scenting it, taking away its terror, a brother, ' Who
will help through life and crown us
with benediction iu tho end.
