iA Pennsylvania editor has dis-
overed that everything in naturo is

Tliis is an Italian bon mot; At
a cafe a group of gentlemen discussing politics* a young student
entered nnd joined in the; conversation ; his arguments did not please
others and one of them said to him,
"Be quiet 1 At your age I was an
ass myself!" "You are wonderfully
well preserved, sir," was the  reply,
One of the best'features of the St,
John, N. B,, summer carnival, whioh
will open on the 22nd inst, and be
continued for ten days, will be an
electric exhibition—a novelty in
Canada. All the leading electric
manufacturing companies of tho
United States intend exhibiting
their specialties, and special attention will be givon to tho various
methods of electric lighting. The
maritime provinces have never he-
fore attempted anything of this kind
on so large a scale, and it is gratifying to learn that the whole affair
promises to bo a grand success.
Reports from Central America
are to the effect that war is imminent between Costa Rica and Nicaragua over canal matters. Costa
Rica, agreed to the joint arrangement
with Nicaragua and the canal company, but Bince then a new party
bus attained power in Costa Rica
which proposes to bteak up the
bargain at cost of war. It will not
do for faotions iu these Uttle republics to impede progress by playing at
cross purposes. A bargain is u bargain with a government, and these
revolutionists may need to be taught
that fact in international dealings,—
fix. 	
the supreme folly of narrow
Btreets. says an exchange, is seen in
the enlargement, at an immense cost,
of St. Lawrence Main street, Montreal, one of the most important
thoroughfares of that city. The Star
oonsiders the widening of the street
one of the greatest improvements
that have ever taken place in Montreal, The buildings to be erected
on the side on which the expropriation has taken place, are all, it is
provided by law, to bo substantial
and at least three storeys in height,
The cost of tho improvement will
bo large, but the money will be well
spent. The city might have been
saved it, however, if the streets had
been sufficiently wide at the beginning. There is some excuse for an
old city like Montreal, but, for new
places, thero is none.
A newspaper correspondent says:
The strangest canal in tho world is
one I never saw mentioned in any
book or newspaper. It is a canal
sixteen miles long, between Wor-
sley and St. Helens, in the north of
England, and is underground from
end to end. In Lancashire the
ooal mines are very extensive, half
the country being undermined, and
many years ago the Duke of Bridge-
water's managers thought they could
save money by transporting the
coal underground instead of on the
surface. So tho canal was constructed, the mines connected and
drained ut the same time. Ordinary canal boats are used, but the
power is furnished by men. On
the roof of the tunnel-arch aro cross-
pieces, and tho mon who do the
work of propulsion lio on their
baoks on the coal, und push with
their feet against the cross-bars on
the roof. Six or eight men will
draw a train of four or five boats,
and as there are two divisions in
tho tunnel, boats pass each othor,
without difficulty.
The second visit of tho Shah of
Persia to England will scarcely
excite the curiosity of the first, but
it will be viewed with considerable
more of apprehension and alarm,
Red Cloud or Spotted Tail could
not convert a Washington hotel into a scene of more painful disorder
than tho Persian monarch leaves
behind him in the palaces
which he has inhabited.
Along with those unfragrant
memories of his earlier visit, and
the extremely unfavorable impression it made of Oriental civilization, are some reminiscences of
Oriental wisdom, suoh as the Shah's
refusal to witness the Derby, upon
the ground that it was already
known to him that ono horse ran
faster than another, London society, however, is about us sorely in
need of amusement as anybody of
equal numbers in the world, and
quite as unscrupulous in the means
of supplying this need. If tho Shah
succeeds in amusing London for a
week, he will, for the purposes of
London, havo fulfilled his mission.—-

In addressing a meeting of his constituents on Friday, Dalton McCarthy,
M, P., explained bis poiition on the
Jesuits question and the allowance of
the net by the Dominion government,
There was perfect honesty on his part,
and he believed on the part of Sir
John Macdonald in tho course he had
taken, but their courses were as wide
as tho polea asunder, and there had
been no collusion between himself and
Sir John on this question. If this
generation does not settle the question
at the ballot box, bayonets will settle
it in the next. *He strongly urged the
abolition of the dual language in the
Northwest. To his shame he said it,
he had not known until six months
ago that Buch was the law in regard to
tho Northwest. He pledged himself
that at the next session he would
move for the expunging of that law
from the statutes, and Keep the great
Northwest free from the dual language
system.

A. S. Poudrier hu received instructions from the government to go over
the ground and estimate the probable
coat of a waggon road between Donald

would go a long way towards developing the natural resources of Moberly.
Henry Van Buskirk, of Vernon,
writes that prospects on Siwash Greek

many people are flocking in and locating claims, He alio atntos that the
right of Indians to prohibit the working of claims by whites on their reserve is not yet settled. This matter
should receive the immediate attention
of the proper authorities.
T. Stewart, who hu been locating a
lino for the C. P. R. through the
Crow's Neit Pass, went weat on Friday's No. 1. He goes to Hopo, from
which point he will run a line south*
east to meet hia other line on tho Columbia. Mr. Stewart it under the impreuion that it will only be a short
time until a road is built through the
oountry he is now surveying, as suoh a
road could command sufficient local
traffio to make it a paying enterpiiae
from the start, the country being very
riohin natural resources. Extensive
beds of coal and petroleum, and rich
gold nnd ailver bearing rock are known
to exist along almost the entire route.
Such a road should experience no difficulty in procuring sufficient capital to
construct it.

materially qualified by what he laid
later.
Jaa. O'Kelly, nationalitt member
of parliament for Roacommon, wu
called, hut uid ho had noatatement to

O'Kelly admitted he had been a mem*
ber of the Irish brotherhood. Sir Hen-

leveral letten referring to the -hipment of irmi to Ireland, the doing! of
Feniam and an ammunition remittance
of $2,600. A letter accompanying remittance uid: "We are ready to take
the field when the proper order it ii-

Firo, Fire!   Wo tlou't   want to
sciK- anyone, and ilon't intend to
f^ivo our renders a War Cry article
either, but   merely to make  a few
moro  remarks   on   a subject that
should   bu of sutlicient interest to
stand nny amount of  threshing--
that is, tlio subject of lire protection.
Assuming   that   it is desirable for
soverul reasons (the chief of whicli
is tho   inadequacy of  the present
water supply of tho city, thus forcing the steam firo engine on all occit-
sious to go to the river, no matter
how distant the tire) to lime a hand
engine stationed on Oolumbia street,
ns  a supplementary lire protective
facility, until tho  water works uncompleted at any rat.', it will not be
necessary to mure than hint at somo
additional improvements in the servico that would   tend to make it
much moro   efficient,     Theso are,
briefly, a division  of the available
forces for different specific duties,
and the establishment of some simple and easily intelligible system of
lire alarms and signals, whereby the
location of the tiro will be convoyed
with the ringing of the alurm.    Wc
will not presumo to go into details
on this branch of  the subject, ns
there   ure those in connection with
tho lire department   of   doubtless
far more practical ability, who can
best devise such a system.   With
regard to a "division of the forces,"
as advocated above, we may be misunderstood.   There is no doubt a
perfectly systematic division, of the
duties  and offices devolving upon
firemen, in the Hyack Company as
constituted.    What wo are driving
at is, tlmt there should be separate
brigades, or divisions of brigades, to
attend respectively lo the steam fire
engine, to  tha hand engine on the
Royal avenue, and to the   proposed
new   baud     engint1' on   Oolumbia
street—when we  get it.   By   this
means, either   ono  or  all   of   the
engines (according as tho alarm and
signals indicated the  situtation   of
the fire) could be brought into action
without any confusion   or   loss   of
time.   Tho  above suggestion*- and
remarks aro   so nearly   obvious   as
not to require to be dwelt upon, and
wo believo that the   city   and   lire
authorities should endeavor   to  do
something in thedirectionsoutlined,
.without delay.
Our neighbors over in Washington
nre just now in the position of a boy
who has reached that momentous
epoch in his history when ho doll's
knickerbockerl, sailor-jackets, and
other juvenile absurdities, and is
promoted nt one bound into a cut-
down suit of his dad's—or, better
.still, into a brand new ono of the
same pattern and design. Uncle
Sam debhirerl not many months ago
—to bo exact, on the 22nd of February last—thU tho anniversary of
tlm birthday of "tho father of his
country" could not be more fittingly
signalized than by conferring state-
hood—an action for some time previously contemplated—upon the four
ambitious and rising territories of
Vyiishirigton Territory, Nortii and
South Dakota, nnd Montana. A
Bomowhat important difference between Uncle Haul's treatment of his
aspiring hopefuls and that of the
aver.tgO "dad" with respect to his
would be miu, is that tlie latter fin -
•iislie.4, or is supposed to furnish, tlm
proper habiliments that go with and
emplui-ii-e the new dignity, while
grim old Uinle Sum does nothing of
tlm sort. He says, in ellect, to his
yoUug sprouts of territories ambitious to '-uter the larger sphere
of statehood: "»Sco hero, you've
been bothering mo nbout this
thing eon si dura bio (Uncle Sam
doesn't juvi-ssiti'il*-* speak good
grammar); so consider yourselves promoted, You arc hereby
doolurod tn lie states and are no
more territories, Now run away
antl get. your own suits. You can
pick 'em up second-hand, or mako
'em yourselves ; but don't bother ine
any mon1 till you get yourselves
litti'd," And thia is what Washington tiiid the other newly-made states
are wre-dling with just now—their
new hints—in other words, their
state constitutions. All are laudably nmbitiouH to shim- iu the dandiest suit of the lot. Some are trying
to patch up second-hand suits for
the purpose. Others are dtttprinincd,
as nearly as possible, to make theirs
out of whole clotli. At the capitals
of the dlffarent new states nre gathered together at the prtseYit time
(dear knows when they will get
through) all the most skilled tailors,
to say nothing of lawyers, that can
be scraped up in the various counties of the respective states, and
they aro alt busily engaged in snipping, and uutting, and fitting, and
trying on and pulling off, and biasing nnd pleating, una ripping and
sw-sw ing—-and   all talking nt
once—trying to got their now suits
. to fit tho atate—of their mind.
Wo earnestly hope thoy may succeed, nnd be quick about it. If they
were not all so set on having the nobbiest and shiniest outfit in the wholo
anion, and would only tone their
notions down to ordinary common
sense ideas of what is necessary and
proper in a suit, they would undoubtedly get through quicker, and
with less agony to themselves aud
the spectators, ln trying to fit on
these new suits, some purts of the
body politic aro pinched, of course,
and ihe indications are that seams
will hnve to bo ripped up, gussets
put in, and considerable work generally done over before a perfect lit
is obtained. Tho following squeal,
from the Pod-Intelligencer of Seattle
show*; where the Washington tailors,
at Olympia assembled, will have to
ply their scissors and give a littlo
mure widtli to lim state trousers ;
'•IF, us somo members of the consti-
iu(iniiiil convention propose, a low
It mi,! is put upon municipal imlcbt-
etlnefis, it will be a very -severe blow
to Seattle. In the work of repairing
tlie damage done by the fire, wo
must have all the assistum-n whicli
(rn credit cau give us, and this is
precisely what the proposed limitation would cut off. We need money
immediately for tho repair of onr
broken si nets and ruined public
docks, fnr supplying means of pro-
leetidn against future liery visitations, for the creation of a sewerage
system antl for many other purposes,
uud in the damaged state of our fortunes, it is impossible to raise this
money by direct and immediate taxation. Either we must have authority to use nur credit, the product
wholiy of our energies, or wo must
suitor delays in rebuilding the city,
involving losses not only for the
pie.-enl, luit for all time to come.
Thn fiiato will lose nothing by allowing S.-.ittle and Fllenburg, ami others
municipalities if they hnve occasion,
to make whatever use they may of
the credit whicli they havo created.
It has no right to come between us
and our best and only chance of immediate recovery from the lire. We
cannot believe that when the situation is fully considered, tho constitutional convention will think of
putting this blighting limitation
upon us."       •

There can be no doubt that these
constitutional convention tailors are
well intentioned people, and that
their efforts nre all in the direction
of progress and advancement, despite the empirical nature of the
work. Among tho •'improvements"
wliich wine of the new states propose to sew into their constitutional
suits are: A scheme for minority
representation (tliis has to be cut
bias, and is giving the "boss" cutters
no end of trouble); woman snll'iage
(North Dakota is bound to have
this trimming, if it does come high";
the abolition of the state senate
(there'll bo scissors to grind if the
constitutional tailors attempt to cut
this wire stitched patch out of some
of llie second-hand trousers); the
•lection of United States senators
d'li'ctly by tho people, instead of by
tlie slate legislatures (tliis*is a new-
cut which it is expected/will prevent bagging at tho knoes and conduce to a moro upright carriage
gei orally). The space at our disposal compels us to lump the following additional fancy cuts, frills,
puckets and bindings which some of
the 'itate tailors have sketched upon
their patterns: An absolutely secret
ballot; no appointive power to be
ves led in state ollioials; all public
6''rv;ints to be elected ; submission
of a proposed law to popular voto by
a one-third voto of tho legislature;
enabling municipal governments to
own and control industries; taxation
of land held from use as high as
land used; reservation of tide and
school lands for the benelit of state
and school funds; no private detectivo agencies to be allowed; no infringement upon the right of the
peoplo to peaceably assomble together for discussion; annual sessions
of tie legislature; und an expeditious method of amending the con-
utitution so as to conform lo changing conditions. And while the subdued clatter from tho four great
state tailor shops over the way is
wafted to our cars across Puget
Sound, wo can but be thankful that
they are not working ou any measure nf ours, while ut the siniie time
expressing tho hope that every suit
may be a perfect lit and "all wool
and a yard wide."

KAILROAD OONDUCTOM
Their Onerous Duties aad;Numer*
ous Responsibilities.
now They Are Supposotl to Cnro for T-tro
nud Property—Somntliln*; Like a Ship'*;
Captain. Thoy   Musi  Conscientiously Attend to Ueliills-
Therc aro conductors and conductors of
railroad trains. Thoro is tho man of kindly
countonanco aud,politc, nttcntivo manner,
who has always timo to listen and reply to
tho queries of thoBO he is rosponsiblo for;
and thero is the surly conductor who affects
tho bluff, brusque manner of an old soadog
on his quarter deck, assorting a dignity
which is grudgingly recognized, and cither
disregarding inquiries altogethor or replying bo curtly that tho inquirer would bo
hardy indeed who would insist upon n
courteous answer. To lho uninitiated, says
tho Now York Graphic, ho seems 'meroly
appendago of railway travel clothed in a
moio or lefts brilliant uniform, and with
power more or loss mistily dofiuod. His
chief function, as far as tho passenger
knows, is to punch and collect tickets, jerk
the boll-rcpc at intervals, and put unauthoi''
teed deadheads off tho train, with tho brake
man's assiatunco. In fact, tho ovor-alort
hralteit&u, jumping briskly to his crank,
and politely assisting pusscngcrs to alight,
and get aboard, scorns a much moro usoful
follow.
Nevertheless the conductor is to tho rail-
way train just what tlio captain on his
qunrtor-deck is to tho ship and its company.
Ho is rosponsiblo for tho train, its passcn
goi's nnd every dotail of Its run from tha
timo he tokos chargo until ho turuB it ovor
to his successor at tho beginning of tho
noxt division. Tho ticket-taking is as
small and unimportant a port of his functions as is tho presiding at tho cabin dinner
oftho master of it Cunnider. Tho latter
has to work out tho details of navigation,
but the conductor has a multiplicity of dotail in tho mattor of reports to be mado to
his division superintendent and company
that require muoh moro patience oven if it
mokes lest draft on othor mental qualities.
To begin with, tho conductor has nothing
to do with selecting his subordinates ou tho
train ho is to run. Ho ia rosponsiblo for
thom, but they aro detailed to report to
him, and tho only control ho has ovor thom
at that slngo is to seo that thoy nro in propor condition of sobriety and uniform. Next,
ho bas to overlook tho cars of his train, inspecting every brake, axlo, journal, bearing
. and wheel, aB well as tho cleanliness of the
interior of his cars. Tlio passengers don't
ofton seo him oxerciso tho authority, but
tlio conductor nevertheless has full charge
of tho starting, stopping and speed of his
train, and ovory member of tho crow from
engineer down is subject io hts orders,
' His flrst offlcor is tho engineer, whom ho
may consult ntcrltlcnl junctures, providing
tho man at tho lovor Is willing to sharo ro-
rcsponslbility. But tho engineer must obey
iu any caso. If tbo engineer should appear
unfit for duty boforo tho run tho conductor
would demand a substitute for him. If tho
unfitness appears aftor tho start ho not
"only has tho powor but it is his duty to tako
him out of tho box and put tlio flroman in
charge, providing ho considers tho lattor
competent, ond put ono of htsbrakemen
iu to fire. If this can not bo dono ho has to
lay up his train at tho first station and tclO'
graph to headquarters for Instructions.
It will thus bo seen that tho conductor's
responsibilities aro numerous and various.
He Is rosponsiblo for engineer, fireman,
baggage-master nnd brakeman. Ho sees
thut the train runs on time, and must ac-
coun Uor delays, no matter what tho causo,
unless tho fault bo cloarly the engineer's,
in which caso tho lattor is answerable. The
liiws of tho various States aro different in
tlio 'regulation of railways. For instanco, in
Massachusetts it Is not permitted to mnko
up time between stations, and a loss of ten
minutes in n hundred-milo run would lead
lo a strict Inquiry by tho division superintendent. Inlcnso of accident the conductor
must first telegraph tho ascorlalnablo particulars from the nearest telegraph station,
They all carry an accident blank, ou which
must bo given full dotalls. This contains a
full account of tlie circumstances and statement of tho precautions takon nnd the efforts mado to prevent tho misfortune!. Ho
must moke diligent inquiry of nil who may
bo injured, ovon in the slightest dogrco, nnd
mako a record of thoir complaints, if nny.
If tho accident ia serious ho must call tho
engineor, fireman and othor roaponsiblo
porsons to Inspect tho various portions of
tho train so as to bo ablo to glvo intelligent
Btatomonts of things as thoy are. Ho must
thus bo ablo with reasonable accuracy to
toll tho causo of tho accident; whether tho
fault waa with tho locomotive or othor machinery of tho train, or lay with tho roadbed or bridges, or was duo to outsido
agoncy.
In caso of accident groat responsibility
resta on tho conductor to insure tho safety
of othor trains. Ho must promptly flag the
tracu, front and rear, at sufficient distanco
lo insure against another train running iuto
disaster, Thon ho must got his crow together and put them to work on tho wreck.
It is a brief muster if lifo has been lost or
passengers Injured nnd In danger, Evory
effort must thon bo directed to tho rccovory
of tho dead, relief of tho wounded and ro*
leaso of tho imperiled. Tho uninjured passengers nro generally prompt to volunteer
their aid under such circumstances, and tho
conductor must tako chargo of all and direct thom. Tho incidental telegraphing la
subordinated in such cases to tho saving of
lifo. If a passenger train is halted through
1 tho disability of its locomotivo tho conductor
has lho authority to impress tho locomotivo
of tuiy freight train that may bo within
reach.
On some roads a full report of nil tickets
punched must bo made-such roads, howovor, uso tlio mileage ticket and issuo no
commutations—nomos and numbor of annual, limited and trip passes.
Tho freight conductor, except in tho matter of livos und tickets, has much tho sunn.'
responsibilities as hia passenger brother
His train Is slower, but ho has lo make the
most or opportunities to regain lost time or
bolter his timo lu stretches whero it may
bo dono with safety. Ho must keep an exact record of overy car on hia train, and Is
responsible for tho correct delivery of
freight to intermodlato points. He inttet
koop hts cu-doors looked, whether loaded
or empty, nnd bo vorycaroful to let no unfortunate tramp beat his way over tho road.
Thoro aro a thousand other dotalls that ho
must attend to with military precision, or
he will soon find himself without a train.
Ono of tho chief requisites of a conductor
is a cool, courageous hoad. Thero aro sevornl instances on record of mon in chnrgo
of trains which mot with accident taking to
lho woods ln fear that thoir lifo would bo in
danger from tho infuriated frionds of doad
or injured paasengors. Ono such conductor, In an accident which happened on
the Kong Island railroad somo years ago,
disappeared and was not found for several
days. Uo was arrested by lho polico after
public opinion had pretty well concluded
that tho accident was duo wholly to his incapacity. In tbo investigation which followed it was shown that ho was without
fault.     __—;    '«, ',:.

BUYING   A BUSTLE.
A Cliloiifto Man Under Ufaes the Task uud
Meets Ignominious Defoat.
If ever a man l'cit liko drawing his knees
up to his chin nnd taking a back somersault
into tho inky gloom ol oblivion I did mysolf
th*- other dny, writes Frank II. Wolcii in
tho Chicago Times.
Wo havo a plethoric household up whero
Hive. "She-whomust-bo obeyed" remains
with tho combination wmlo I am Appointed
purchaser and errand-boy extraordinary in
ull matters of trado. I was commissioned
to bring homo u five-spring, pitont-oxten-
sion,"doublo ontondor " bustle, with a givo*
aud-tako roeiprocativc movement, and a
doublo row of knifo-aud-i'ork plaiting**
around tbo superstructure. Tho brand of
courage that is most in demand when n
mau is called upon to peer into tho dim
and deadly depths of a hostile cannon is the
nind that ho needs a good supply of when
undertaking to penetrate lho intricacies
offomiuino apparel. Of this I becamo us-
sured when I entered tho ladies' supply
department of ono of our largo dry-goods
establishments, and sought to run to earth
lho article iu question. "With tho co-operation of a real sweet thing In Dundrearys 1
brought up nt tho bustle countor,and, assuming a nonchalant attitude and an air ol' familiarity with all kinds of anatomical brio
ti-bruc, requested tho young lady In attend
anco to hand mo down n choice assortment
of her wares. I must havo taken her un
awarcs, for she manifested some trepidation
beforo inquiring how high I wauled to go
foi a hustle. I Informed hor that I did
not want to go very high—something medium would hit the bill. I then Inspected
a number of vertebral elongations, runging
from the maximum to the inluiraurif in size
and price. Of ono thing I became impressed whilo reveling amidst a wilderness
of sirups and springs, nnd that was, the
danger of u man's gotting so mixed up
among lliom that ho wouldn't know whether ho was looking for a base-ball mask, a
bird-cage or a bustle. I soon succeeded, however, in securing a fair-sized specimen-ono
that scorned to bo all that would bo required
of it by tho mombors of our household.
Slipping my pnekngo, containing tho bustle
all jammed up into a solid hunk under my
arm, I started out and boarded a street-car
for home.
I havo said I boarded a car. So I did. I
regretted noon afterward that I did, and
wished that tho car had boarded mo and
kindly ground mo and that bustle up into
an unrecognizable mass. But such was not
my fate, I seated myself in tho car amid a
bewildering profusion of brand-new matinee fabrics, furbelows and trlnijinglcs, and
giving my package an extra punch up
undor my arm for safety proceeded to
breathe in tho ravishing odors of good
Wcst-sido st root-car hay. So rapt did I
becomo In tho gonorol gossip lhat 1 beeamo
unconscious of tho fact that I was tho custodian of a woll-doveloped, energetic bustle
until I was recalled by a movement under
my arm as of a nost of young alligators just
waking up aud moving out lor deep water.
Glancing down I was greeted by a bulging rib of Btcel that had worked its
way to tho surfaco, and, as I soon found
out, to tho notice of tho charming young
lady immediately opposito. With a cautious movement of my disengaged
hand I gathered tho too-aspiring rib into
tho folds of its paper covering, and
at the Bamo timo becamo aware that
tho maiubraco of that package had
slipped its moorings. With tho discovery
all tho perspiration I happened to havo with
mo also slipped its moorings and discharged
itself in icy rivulets in tho direction that
water always takes when ft gets loosp and
has its own way. A sensation ns of a small
but robust galvanic battory toying with my
spinal column seined mo, and mv hat-band
seemed te contract and shut oil all brain reinforcement—in a word, I was paralyzed
with perplexity. What was to bo clonoi I
sought tho answer in the mischievous
glances of that beautiful maid opposite. I
peered across into tho basilisk optics of a
stern old party in specs. I desperately
struggled against tho fearful catastrophe
threatening mo, but nil to no avail.  First
OUO riUiiMt-ui'ted- it-m-lf, bh«si> othorn followed
suit. In the throes of desperation I seized
tho vilo thing with tho grasp of a cable-grip
and ondeavored to throttlo it, bub alas, It
had worked a fow moro riba looso and was
struggling desperately to regain its rightful position in tho world. I grasped tho
wrapping-paper with both hands and sought
to smother tho thing into submission, but it
writhed and twisted, curled nnd sprang,
and I saw it was no go. With a wild, do*
opairing glance at the grinning imbeciles
ml about me, I followed tho advice that was
(riven Sir. Gallaghor—I let 'or go I That settled it. I immediately becamo tho central
figuro of tho group—the cynosure, so lo parley, of all oyos. I longed for a coal-chute;
any thing to afford mo a swift and suddon
doparturo from this vnlo of tears. Then I
unbuttoned my coat, folded tho treasuro
closo to my bosom, dropped off tho roar end
of the car, and after' jumping on that accursed hustle, struck for homo—sweet,
aweet homo, I am slightly bruised, but not
seriously hurt.      	
ABSINTHE TOPERS.
A Deadly Habit Whioh Is Finding Many
Dovoteos ln Tills Country.
I regret to seo tho numbor of victims to
tho absinthe habit increasing, ns in fact nro
tho victims to ovory form of stimulont,
writes a physician in tho St. Louis Globs-
Democrat. Tho young men oro cultivating
abahitho, and whon lho present generation
reaches middle ago, tho absinthe tippler
will ho ono of tho frequent guostaatour
hospitals, which are now full of drunkards
and nnrcotio takers. I am now treating a
man who has reached tho lost stage Tho
offocts aro fearful. It is a drink that serves
as a powerful Btlmntent nt first, but is tlio
most Injurious in tho ond because of its
strength. It la eaay to drink absinthe lo excess becauso it requires such a small quantity to do tho work. Tho intoxication it
causes is exhilarating and pleasant, but
aftor It is drank to oxcobb tho digestive
organs aro destroyed ond tho appotito
ruined. With tho effects worn off, comes a
terrible thirst, with giddiness nnd a tingling In tho oars, mental depression and
finally hallucination and loss of brain power.
Tho Bymptoms of an excessive drinker
breaking down aro muscular quiverings,
loss of physical slrongth, emaciation and a
sallow comploxlon. Paralysis finally sends
him to tho grave, Tho drink will hasten a
man'a ruin faster than all tho other drinks of
tho modorn drunkard. Absinthe wns Introduced to civilization by the French tioldtcrs
of Algiers after tho Algerian war' ih 18*1.
It la a product of North Africa, nnd tbo sol-
dtora mixed it with thoir vino as a fobrl-
fugo. Thoy took the habit to Franco, and
uow Its manufacture la ono of tho largest
liquor trades In Europo. \V hat Franco does
not consume finds Its way to America, It
is chiefly mado at Noufchatol, Switzerland,
which averages 2,000,000 gallons yearly. It
la a protty liquid and nlco to taste, hut you
would not think to to aco it that is mndo by
mashing the leaves and flowering tops of
four species of wormwood with sweet flag,
and nngolica root, and star anlso fruit, and
macerating them in alcohol, Tho compound
Is distilled after eight days soaking, ond
anlso oil is added to givo it taste. Of course
imitations arc mado of essential oils and
barknwlth Wuo vitrei; hut thogonuino Is
deadly enough.	
A Dangerous Cmiiitci-tVnt.
41 Tho most dangerous counterfeit note tn
tho country at present," said Detectivo
Soanlon, of the United Slates Secret servico, to a Now York Telegram roportor-, "is
tho ton-dollar United States Treasury note
known as the ' Webster head.' It has been
on tho market for some time and Is bo
cleverly oxecuted that It deceive!* experienced enshtors. Tho only noticeable fault
nbout It Is thut tbo noso on the vlgnelte uf
Webster Is crooked, Tho plulo Is in the
hands of u combination of men, and lliey
put out tho bills iu lho most fiunnliig way.
Thoy came hore and in throo days got rid of
fifty or a hundred of them. Tho next hoard
of them will bo in Chicago or soino other

A Morocco Alarm Cluolt.
Mall carriers in Morocco nro said to avoid

by tying a string to ono foot and setting llio

Tho string, thoy know from experience,

that an Indian netted 150 in two hours.
These fish are headed for the Fraser

Ten miles of grading for the Fair-

without some friendly recognition.
What the music lacked in melody was
made tip for in quantity. Although

before them a handsome spread, which
was discussed with apparent pleasure

Tbe Blfle Association.
At a meeting of the rifle association
held last uight, steps wero taken for
placing the Brownsville range in good
condition for the provincial prize meeting which tikes place next- month. A
portion nf thu range will bo widened
in order to make room for two moro
targets, and the firing points will be
renewed. The long Snider rifles applied fur some mouths ago have been
granted and they are oxpeotod to arrive in a fqiy days.
llie Uludcrgiirlt-ti.
The kindergarteu school lately established by Miss Druimnond f-eemu
likely to prove a success, and it is
probable that it will become a permanent institution. Tlie kindergarten
syLtuin is admitled If) bo tho vory best
for young children, as the studios nre
light nnd of a. nature attractive to tho
littlo ones, besides which there is n complete absence, of mental strain or worry
su iujiu-iuiia to youthful minds. Many
parents who did not care tu send their
liU'o OIK'S lit the public school, but still
wished tliat thoy Bhould begin light
stud leu, have taken advantage of tho
opporlmiinty afforded by Misa Drum-
Blond's class, and with results moat
satisfactory. As the system becomes
more widely known, nud its woith
properly appreciated, tho school , ia
certain to be largely patronized, especially ns the tutor's foes are trifling
compared with the good work accomplished.
l-lct-iiru-N for Farmers.
Many farmers owning land along tho
fiver front havo for years boon in tho
habit of catching a sullieieut number
of salmon for their own use, but under
tho new fisheries law thoy wero debarred from obtaining a license this year
and therefore could not fish. This
was considered a real hardship, and
representations ou the subject were
made lo Mr. Thos, Mowat, inspector
of fisheries, who communicated the
facts to Ottawa, strongly urging the
claims of tho farmers. Last night
Mr. Muwat received t-legraphic instructions from Ottawa to i-suo licenses
to bona fide farmers owning land ou
tho river front, for the purpose of
catching tish fur their own special use,
but not for sale, barteror traffio, Theae
licenses will be issued at the reduced
fee of §2, and any farmer regularly entitled may obtain a license by applying
at onco at tlio inspector's offloe. This
is ii wise movo ou tho part of the government and it will bo greatly appreciated by all who are benefitted by it.
Ilurticiiltural Exhibition.
The exhibition under the auspices of
the British Columbia Fruit Growers'
Association will bo held at Vancouver
on tho 7th nf August. Tiio Van
Horno block, Granville street, will
probably bo selected as the most suitable and convenient place. Tho prize
list, prepared largely by ihe president,
Mr. J. M. Browning, offers 87 cnali
premiums for first prizes and a similar
number for second, 174 in all. Pot
plant** must have boon grown in pots at
least two months previous to the exhibition and be the property of tho exhibitor. All fruits muat bo grown by or
under tho direction of the exhibitor.
Hand bouquets will be judged ou the
following points'. Composition with
regard to grace and elegance; quality
of flowers; contrast of flowers; sufficiency of foliage; Bize will not constitute merit aud ovor size will be cdn-
siderod a defect; and the use of paper
around tho bottom of a bouquet will
disqualify the exhibit. Entries for the
exhibition will close one wook beforo
the date of its being held.

The Vancouver Foundry.
By advertisement in another column
it will bo observed that tho working
stair of the Vancouver Foundry and
Machine Works Co. haa been reorganized. This became necessary in consequence of tho great incroaso that has
taken place in the business since commencing operations, a little over a
year ago. Mr. D. Cartmel, who for a
period of fivo years was fleet engineer
of H. M. navy yard at Esquimalt, has
associated himself with the concern
and becomo a conaiderablo shareholder
in tho capital stock of the company, of
which he has been elected general
manager. Mr. Cartmel was in H. M.'s
service for 30 yoars. For his services
in connection with tho polar expedition under Sir George Nates, ho was
promoted by the Admiralty. He was,
also, chief engineer on H. M. ship
Neptune, which, nt the time of his taking chnrgo of her, was the most powerfully eugiued war vessel afloat. At
his own request ho was placed on the
retired list; but prior to this ho was
in chargo of the floating factory in
Portsmouth harbor, which position he
resigned for tho purposo of removing
to this province. Any orders entrusted to tho company will have the personal supervision of Mr. Cartmel.

Imperial Institute,
Sir Soniors Vino had an interview
with tho members of tho provincial
government yesterday morning, and
after hying before them all particulars
in regard to the Imperial instituto pro*
juct, received their promise to lend all
tbe assistance in their power to make
the British Columbia court a
worthy representation of the province
Tho government iB very favorably impressed with the advantago of having
the provinco woll represented at the
institute. Sir Homers will meet the
executive again this morning.—Cofo-
nist, July 10, The following from tho
remarks of the Colonist on tho subject
editorially, wilt give a fair idea of the
object uf tho institute: "We trust that
the provincial government will do aU
in their powor to havo British Columbia adequately represented in the Imperial instituto of the United Kingdom, the colonies and India. If tho
different colonies and provinces have
an enlightened regard for their own
interests, the visitor to the institute
will be able ta net a better knowledge
of the resources, tho capabilities and
the social and industrial condition of any one of thom, than
if ho had made a journey to it
and spent months in examining it.
All the colonies complain that the people of the United Kingdom and of tho
countrios on the continent of Europo,
know very little about them, and that
when uny of them do visit them, they
have as muoh to unloarn as to learn.
But if thero were suoh a plaoe as tho
Imperial institute in London, easy of
access, and furnished with everything
iH-cesaiiry to facilitate bhe enquiries of
the intending emigrant in search of information, this ignorance would bu
dispelled and tho false impressions
that colonists complain of would be removed."
Science Anient Boed Makers*
Quite a scientific debate took place
nt Tom Robinson's camp, on t'10 Scott
road, the other ovening as to whether
or uot wool was a conductor of electricity, Tom and bis mon are very enthusiastic over t-cieutilio matters, and
thoir discussions on the various subjects are conducted with n vim and vigor, which if turned in the direction
of roadmaking would muku the dirt
fly iu a manner wonderful to behold.
The causo that gavo rise to the latest
discussion was a strange phenomenon
that was observed in connection with
their blankets, which are hung on tho
fonce every day for an airing.
After supper the other night one of
the men was detailed by Tom to gather
up the blankets. Tlie amateur scientist proceeded to do as lio was bid*,
but, strange to say, uot a blanket
would let go ils hold ou tho fence.
Surprised, but nut dismayed, he examined tho articles closely and found to
his astonishment that the t.-legraph
wire bad been magnetically drawn
towards tho blankets, round whioh it
hnd warped itself in an amazing manner. The other scientists were made
aware of tho phenoiuunuu ami all proceeded to make an inspection iu order
to sond an accredited paper ou the subject to tho British Association. Thu
scientist',- repot t was found not to be a
(miss) take, fur auro enough the wiro
was found to bu warped round the
blankets ontho (leu) sido of tho fence.

Aftor a severe strain ou tiio mental
powers of tho managers in chief, lho
Methodist and Reformed Episcopal
Sunday school picnics got under way
this morning and left for their respective picnic grounds, the former going
to Derby townsito on a scow towed by
a tug, and tho latter to Pitt River on
the str, Adelaide. The picnickers
seemed to bo endowed with an unhappy faculty for getting on the wrong
boat, mid although the morning was
cool the managers fairly oozed with
perspiration in their efforts t. separate
tho lambs of tho different Hocks. After
a hard struggle the baskets aud children wero pretty thoroughly separated,
and the manager of the Methodist
party, in joyful triumph nt having accomplished this unparalleled feat,
grasped the whistlo cord and sounded
a number of victorious but very discordant shrieks ou the tug's whistle.
It was a triumphant moment for him,
but he soon regretted having given
vent to his gladsome feelings through
tho medium of tho tug. Tho shriek*
ings of the"whietle rudely awakened
the 248 babies aboard tho scow, and
these promptly eet up a chorus of
howls that would have done credit to
a baby show of unusually large dimensions. In frantic despair the ropes
wero cast off and the scow g'ided into
the stream, bobbing up and down in
beauteous rhythm with the infantine
medley. The Reformed church party
then gathered up all who remained,
and, after stationing sentinels over the
baskets, tho propeller was put in
motion and thu steamer headed for
Pitt Lako.

The annual meeting of the Quesnello

now on hand, four or fivo tons of
quartz from the Hixou oreek mine will

is satisfactory, crushing will be immediately commenced in tho mill of the

Lake, nnd eight miles from tho head
ot the lake. The excitement hnd
abated somewhat, but a large number
had reached tho attractive locality nud
preparations were going forward to

Angel of Pence would again And a
