There will bo only ono negro in

American exchange, This is H, P.
Cheatham of North Carolina, who is
essentially a self-made man, of good
reputation. ITo has been superintendent of normal schools and register of deeds, and is a good illustration of tlie benefits of the schools
that havo beon opened for colored peoplo in tho southern state"1 sinco tho

child, they are still in our set. Treat
them cordially." "Hut thoy live

"Then pass them with a bow." "In
fact, their home now is just above
Sixteenth." "Cut thom dead."
Comment would be superfluous.
"William!" exclaimed Mrs. High-
strung, ns sho laid down the paper.
"There's likely to bo a war with
England ovor Behring Sea." "What

took no interest in military matters.
"1 don't cnre what you caro or don't

with some vehemence. "Tliis war
is about seals, and if England wins
thoy can charge any prico thoy please

Tho Only One,—A correspondent
sends us the following from an advertisement in the Christian World:
"Cultured, earnest, godly young
man desires a pastorate * vivid
preacher* musical voico; brilliant
organizer; tall, and of good appearance; blameless life; very highest
rofovenccs; beloved by all; salary,
£120." Fancy! this prizo to bo
obtained for only £120 1 ! and tho
sum is his own valuation of himself!
So that modesty is to be added to
his merits, which, of course, would
bo taken for granted by anyone reading the above advertisement.—
Punch.
Prof. Elisha Gray, tho electrician,
lias invented what he calls the telautograph which ho pronounces fur
ahead of the telephone and in advance of the telegraph, A person
sits down at tho instrument with a
pen in hand and proceeds to write
his message. At tho other end of
the wire another pon jots down not
only tho identical words but the
shape of the letters, etc,, of tho
words contained in tho message.
It is a shadow in ink of tho original
writing. Thore is no noiso and no
"helloing." He promises to havo
them in market by tho first of September or October and wo would
not bo surprised to find tho telephone totally discardod in tho next
year for this new instrument.
This lament is from tlio Pall Mall
Oaxclte: Wo aro threatened with a
now dog. Indeed, tho throat is
now more than a year old, and we
will soon liavo the dog very plonti*
ful. As yet he's a rarity, fashionable and expensive, beginning to be
rocognized at dog shows, but not
making any sensiblo impression ou
tlio dog-loving Londoner. Ho is a
Dutchman, with a long mane and a
short body nnd a sharp bark, a head
liko a pig, big oars and no tail. It
does not sound inviting in way of
description. Whon tbe present
century wns in its teens and steam
in its infancy, tho canal boats in the
low countries did much of tho passenger traffic. Peoplo lived on them
during their journeying, in a leisure
ly fashion, Tho wear and tear was
slight nnd tlio food excellent. Then
camo the railways. Tho barges lost
tho society of the travelling community nnd became misanthropic. They
took up with dogs, and this dog was
the favorite. Such is tho legend,
lie is called a schipperke, and it is
from tho canal boats of tho Netherlands that he comes to us to make
his barque in a London drawing room. He is said to be
dead on rats, clennly and affectionate. Unfortunately the smallor
ho is tho moro ho is prized. Ho
will degenerate first into a lady's dog
and then into a "toy." But in a
couplo of years tho mongrel varieties of him will bo plentiful and we
will be flooded with Bchipporkcs.
What then will become of all the
fox terriers? Will thoy disappear
liko steeple crown hats, or will London bo able to support tho two

AN AWFUL MURDElt.
Buooklyn, N. Y., Aug. 23.--Christian Wilholm Luca, a well to do German grocery-man, who lives with his
family over his store, corner of Jar
and High streets, was literally backed
to pieces with a bowio knife in tho
hands of Chas. McEIwain, who burglariously entered thostoro at 3:30 this
morning. McElwam had two accomplices. The burglar entered a yard
in tear of tho houso, and put a ladder
up to tho second story window, opened
tho window, crawled in and made his
way to the front room. As he reached
the passageway, tho noise awakened
Luca, who got up to seo what was tho
matter. On entering thu dining room,
he saw McEIwain and grappled him at
once. The noise of tho tuash* aroused
Mrs. Luca who rushed into tin* room,
followed by her young son. Luca was
then down on his knees and his assailant striking him repeatedly with a big
knife. Mra. Luca caught tho murderer
by the arm but McEIwain pushed her
off shouting, ' 'Let go or J '11 cut you
open aa I did bim." McEIwain then
jumped out of thu window and rati
down tbo street. Luca died ten min*
utea afterwards. As McEIwain ran
down the street ho tvas caught with
the bloody knife in hi-i potaestfoh and
taken (0 thu Btatiou house. At the
station house tho prisoner wus fully
identified by Mrs. Lucn and after some
hesitation MoElwain confessed bo

AMERICAN   OriNIQN.-*,
Washington, Aud, 21.—Tliu news
brought to Victoria by Capt. Alitor, of
tho sealer AlHo Algor, has had tho effect of creating an unusual amount of
intorest among the fow oifioiuls of the
stale and treasury departments who
remain in tho oity. Acling-Socretary
Batohollor was first informed of tho
(leisures reported by Capt. Alger by a
Tbe ''riinHlioppcr Plngnc.
Mr. John Gilmore arrived in Vic
torin Tuesday night from Nicola. On
beinj; interviewed by a Colouist reporter on tho stato of things existing
in hia district since tho grasshopper invasion, Mr. Gilmore said: "In tho
month of June the grasshoppers made
their appearance among us and they
haven't all eono yet. They swept tho
wholo country in ono great black cluud
and tho ontiro extent of tho •magnificent bunch grass country, about 25
miles in width and 60 miles long, extending from Spenco's bridge to Doug*
1ns Lake, is now as bare as a floor.
Then in tiio middle of the pest came
tho bush fires, destroying the last vestige of what the grasshoppers wore
leaving, and making tho whole of tho
district unbearably hot nnd suffocating.
Tho cattlo and horses aro now feeding
iu the w'l'i'da on what j;esturhig they
can get hold of, but when tho first
rains full 1 don't know what wo will do
with them. 1 should reckon tbat over
two-thirds of the firain in our district
has been destroyed by tho grasshoppers. Thoy are atill numerous nt
Nicola, hut aro fast dying out on tho
ground they havo so fearfully devastated. Tho cause of their extinction
is a small parasite thnt, it has been discovered, stabs thom under the wing.
In many places tho ground is carpeted
with tho doad insects. There will
bo no decent feed in the district until
the first of May next, and for my own
pnrt, as soon nn the snow falls I will
got all my cuttle under shelter nnd
feed thom till then." "This grasshopper plague," continued Mr. Gilmore,

bu fun." General Batohollor, when
questioned as to tho action of the commander of tho Rush ln placing but one
mun aboard the Beized vessel as a prizo
crew, said that the Rush had only
enough men to manage her. Her commander could not ufi'ord to spare moro
thun one man for ench veisel or, Geu.
Bntchellor added, ho would probably
havo done bo whon the Black Diamond
waa 'seized by tho Rush. He went on
to say that her captain refused to allow
his crew and declined himself to bo
plnccd under parole to go to Sitka
peaceably, and it is likely that the
captains of the seized vessels, Minnie
and I'utlilindcr, followed his example,
bo that they broko no agreement if this
suriniso should ho correct. "Wu will
kucp right on seizing," hu said iu conclusion, "and in lho meantimb will
await patiently the official report of
those seizures from the captain of the
Rush." Actiug-Socretary Wharton,
of the state department, also received
his first intimation of the seizures from

aud the stock was at once pledged.
This was the first stop towards carrying out tho deal concerning thu assets

Another step in the deal in tho deal

THE IRISH ESTIMATES.
London, Aug. 21.—Tho Irish estimates came up again in the HouBp of
CoromonB to-day. When the vote for
the Lord-Lieutenant was reached, Mr.
Thomas Sexton moved that ihu vote
be reduced by the amout provided for
tho salary of Mr. Balfour, the chief
secrelary. Thu principles of Mr. Balfour's rulo in Ireland, he Baid, wero u
bud administration of a bad law, the
arbitrury use of physical forco and tho
suppression of the truth. In the course
of his speech in the support of the
amendment Mr. Sexton spoke of Ihe
Parnell commission and said that the
Tims had placed at its disposal the
whole legal machinery of the government in its efforts lo briug homo to
Mr. Parnell and his followers disgraceful charges of conspiracy nnd crime.
Notwithstanding tliis tiio Parnellites
were entirely satisfied witli the result
of the enquiry, so far as thu conspiracy
had ended. It had been known to
exist, but it waa not one iu which tho
Parnellites but their accusers had
taken part. Mr. Parnell 1 poke in
support of Mr. Sexton's amendment
without referring to tbe oharactor of
tho law whic|t Mr. Balfour waa callod
upon to administer in I rebut:. This
policy appoared to be to incite tho instruments of tho law to exceed its letter and its spirit. Tho am end 111 cut
was rejected by n voto oflJ2 to 33.

The Latest geleur*-,-,.
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCasto:
Yesterday afternoon (he stoamcr
Olympian brought from Port Towns-
end Captain Algar of tho American
sealing schooner AlHo L. Algar and
ono of his hunters. Both were fresh
from Behridg's sea, and brought news
of tho utmost importance with them.
The captain, who was interviewed immediately on arrival by a Colonist roportor, said: "Ontho 30th duly wo
were iu Behring's sea, as nearly aa I
can judge, about fifty miles west of
St, Paul, whon wo sighted lho cutter
Rush steaming up to us on our quarter. Wc at once hovo to. Some
minutes afterwards a boat put out
from the Hush and Liout, Tit vie board*
od us, He askod for my pnpors
which I nt once handed to him, and
after perusing them ho proccuecd, with
two of his men, lo search the ship. Ho
didn't find anything, however, though
that's not to say thoro was nothing to
find aboard. After coming out of tho
hold when ho had finished searching
tho ship I said to linn, 'Well, what
luck huvo you hnd on the ttoaV Ho
said, I'll tell you! On tho Ilth of
July wc captured lho Black Diamond,
and despatched hor to Sitkn, with a
man aboard to tako chnrgo of her. On
tho 23rd of July wo Bighted the
schooiior Minnie. Her uwncr, Cnpt.
Jneobson, was aboard at the timo, and
sho had 843 BcalskiiiB. Wn took possession of her and despatched her to
Sitka also. Yesterday (tho 2fith of
Julyi we bore down on the Pathfinder,
and found 800 sealskins abnaid her.
We put another mnn aboard her and
ordered hor off to Sitka na well. Last
woek wu boarded both tho Ariel and
Thercso. They had soinoskma aboard
but wc lot them go, as the stud' had
boen too long caught, ordering thom
out of tho sea.' After telling mo this
tho lieutenant told mo I had better got
out of thu sea at onco, and ho,was
thon pulled aboard his steamer, which
headed away fur the east. Wo then
set sail for the south aud arrived yesterday at NoahBay. I loft my schooner
thore and came up from Cape Flattery
to Port Townsend. I thon caught the
Olympian and havo just reached Victoria. My schoonor will, I oxpoct, bo
on tho road to Seattlo now. I will
loavo horo on the Olympian to-morrow
to rejoin her. I've been already a sufferer on n former occasion through a
seizure of ono of my vossols in Behring's sea in 1887. Sho had 1,000
skins aboard, and sho was trken to
Sitka, whero they were oondonmed by
tho judgo there. I appealed to the

Everyone interested in the eity'*;
welfaro will be glad that a satisfactory basis of agreement bus been
reached between the eity and the
railway company, and that a by-law
embodying tho new arrangement.-"
will be introduced in the council at
its next meeting, Tho report of the
committee of tho council on the new
Southern Railway proposal.-;, which
was adopted at a -ipecial meeting of
the council held Tuesday afternoon,
antl published in this paper yesterday, gives the principal points upon
which the by-law will bo based,
Tho considerations to bo given tlio
railway men are practically tho
same, it will be seen, aS under the
original agreement, with the exception of the larger grant on Lulu
Island, for which tlie railway company havo to fulfill the conditions,
including tho construction of the
Lulu Island bridge and other valuable works, under which the six
hundred acre grant was made hy
the government to lho city. The
assurunco that the main bridge
across the Frasor will strike the
northern bank within the old city
limits disposes satisfactorily of that
important point, and, if proper
conditions are observed in tho
by-law for tho payment of tho
bonus, that is, after certain, specified works (which wo hav
enumerated in former nrticles) aro
completed and accopted by the city,
there cau be no question but that
fho railway bonus by-luw will have
the unanimous support nf the rate*'
payers when submitted, As Mr. Ben
uotfi was requested four months' time
to detenu ino the question whothei
the bridgo will bu undertaken imme
diately, or a forry put on in the first
place,"tho $100,000 bonus for the
bridge will not bo included iii the
by-law to be introduced next week.
The temporary breach in our civic
council caused by the resignation,
nearly a month ago, of then Mayor
Hendry and Alderman .Seoullar, has
w,v„. ..g,-,;-* bWo-^u-j .-^puWt- ..,.,1
with ii full board once more the
council will no doubt enter upon
their onerous duties with renewed
vigor and purpose to round out in
the four months remaining to them
the good record of the fore part of
the year, and in this work we predict that the recent additions will
prove a source of strength. The
council, winch has been a most busy
and energetic one since the first, has
still its hand'* full of very important
work, and the remainder of tlio year
will call forth the best endeavor
and tho most faithful and tactful
service of every member of tho reconstitute board. Upon tho present council will depend in a considerable measure the success of tho
forthcoming exhibition and celebra
tion, for whicli we bespeak their
hearty support and assistance, ns wo
do also that of every citizen who can
seo threo inches beforo his nose,
Following on the heels of the exhibition will be the reception to his
excellency the governor-general, who
liar, formally suited that he could
uot be in thi3 city until on or about
th-"* tenth of October It will bo the
particular business of the mayor and
council, in conjunction with every
loyal and patriotio citizen, to see
that tho vice-regal visitors aro fittingly received and entertained, and
in this we boliove lho council will
acquit themselves creditably, In
this connection wo might mention
that a portion of the preparations
for iiu1 exhibition celebration, such
as the proposed arches and other
adornment-*, will probably be found
to come in conveniently for the governor general's reception, coming as
it •■.'ill *o soon after the exhibition.
Westminster must do itself, honor
on both theso occasions, and to do
so will require tho cordial co-operation of all. To return to the subject
more particularly, the present council will not only have to carry on the
important streot improvements already so energetically begun, but
will. bo called upon to deal with
critical phases of those momentous
questions, the Southern Railway and
the water works. Other impending
duties might bo mentioned, all of
which would go to increase the conviction thut our city fathers havo no
holiday task to perform, ut this stage
especially of tho city's history and
progress. They will certainly deserve all honor and credit if they
fulfill their onerous and multifarious
duties aa well for tho remainder of
the year as thoy have in the past,
and we have overy confidence that
this will bo tho caso.
Tho election in Victoria city yestorday resulted us wns generally ex-
pectod. Hon. Theodore Davie, the
new attorney-general, waa elected
by a fair majority over his opponent,
Dr. Milno. The latter, however,
polled a respectable vote, whon the
total number of votes cast is considered, and thi-* will doubtless be
nocoptod a** a measure of consolation
by the opposition and Dr. Milno
himself, although it was probably
due more to the personality of the
opposition candidate than to his politics that he polled tho voto ho did.
The contest as to tho issues which
either party attempted  to forco to
tho front was  not without interest,
and tho different stand taken on the
Canadian   Western   Railway question by thn two candidates nnd thoir
supporters is especially  worthy of
remark;   Mr. Davie, as our readers
havo already been informed, had but
one plank in his platform, and that
plank  was,  most emphatically, the
Canadian Western Railway —tho
Canadian Western   or "bust," wus
practically   tho    attorney-general's
war-cry.    lu   this  he  was, with a
seeming reluctance at first, supported
by the  Colonist, the acknowledged
government organ of Victoria, but
Mr. Davie's colleagues in tho cabinet   carefully avoided   any specific
endorsation of the attorney-general's
Oanadian    Western    "talk."     Dr.
Milne, of   the opposition, heartily
supported   by tho Times, ridiculed
Mr. Davie's "railway policy," arguing in effect that everything reasonable had  been already done for the
Oanadian Western, that it was now
the business of   its  promoters to go
ahead on the strength of their oharter and laud subsidy of last session,
and     charged      the    government
candidate  with dishonestly raising
an issuo that was no issue.    On the
other   hand, tlie   public school act,
with   its  recent amendments, wns
branded as a "political machine" by
Dr. Milne and tho Thnes aud put forward as tho chief  issue in tho contest.    But, owing to tho blundering
of the opposition candiduto on this
question, by laying   stress   upon a
clause which was not in the act, and
it   being   clearly shown that as a
school trustee he had quite recently
tacitly approved of provisions which
as a candidate ho condemned, Dr.
Milne and his party lost rather than
gained   by their  handling of the
school question.    Whilo a considerable number of tho Victoria elector
could hardly have been satisfied at the
manifest lack of emphatic endorsation by tho other members of the
government  of   Mr,  Davie's ultra
railway   gush,   still   thoy  judged,
rightly enough from their standpoint,
no doubt, that, ns   between  a man
who promised so much—and withal,
judged by his record in the house,
was   known  to be an enthusiastic
Canadian Western "boomer"—and
a man that promised nothing, Out
honestly admitted  that the railway
in question  had got its start, their
safest policy was to elect tho former,
moro especially ua he would constitute their third  representative in n
strong government, while his opponent would rest under tho disability
of occupying a bench in tho "cold
shades,"   Who shall  say that Victoria did not consult her own interests iu the voto of yesterday? As to
the question of more provincial nid
for the Canadian Western Railway,
the   province   at   largo will   have
something to say.   TilE Oou'mbuv
will not lie silent on tbe question.

ONE BRIGHT SPOT.
Wandering throuEh lifo's wildornosri,
I gropo my troubled wny,
Hope pointing on to plainer paths,
A3 day succeeds to day;
My guiding alar ofttimes obscured
Su lhat I aee it not- •
Hut all along tho tollsomo way,
I Btill havo Oao Bright Spot.
A worldly, weary pilgrim,
Outlines wlih Kieamirod tread
uminii'3 with littlo sunshltio,
To tall upon my head,
Ofttimes with loaded crosses
Tliat may not bo laid down,
lint I know thero yot remalnath,
If true, a victor's crown.
To win that crown and wear It,
Alt worthily and well,
Will bring lull compensation
For woos that onco befell;
Whon the "wicked cease from troubling
And tlio weary" no mora roam,
Tbat Ono Bright Spot I still shall have,
And that Bright Spot-My Homo.  -.. .
My Homo, 0 joy Indeed, to know
That whon lifo's raco is run,
Whon breaks the resurrection inorn,
And a now lifo's begun,
Tbat through gleams of golden glory,
Uoacli.'ig up to Hoavcn's doino,
Tbat Ono Bright Spot will mirrored bu
In an eternal homo.
—Good Housekeeping.
Al. tbo Bamo moment the door behind nio
opened iiu-1 in walked my Bister Boulah, old
Mrs. DnU'BOU, mid ii tall, llno-looln."" young
mail,'with a silky brown muslm-lie and
darkcye-*, Unit, in the ono glanco i got or
them, Boomed full of suppressed laughter.
"Gracious nio, Letty hyhat'sthonintte vl"
cried Bculnli. "And how camo thnt trunk
opon?'
"This is thu very trunk," said the tall
young man. "Initialed 'C—for Ctirsou-
you know."
"And I hopo no ono'U never accuse nio of
stealing human bones no more," aaid Mrs.
piti-faon, unfokHu**; a prodigious -while pock-

"It's—It's fullof—bones!" Iguspod.

THE MISSING SKELETON.
It Laid tho Foundation for a Love
Story Before It Turned Up.
Tlio first night in tlio now houso—how Ineffably dreary it was!
1    May day had dawned with bluo aky and
j? winds full of treacherous bolminosB, hut
*■  long boforo noon it had clouded over, ond
With tho dusk a flue, nccdlo-prlcklng sort of
vain hud set in, which, without making
much outward show, had yet contrived to
drench us girls through nnd through as wo
inndo our wny along lho strcots with tho
parrot'** case, tlio nmsio box und tho bost
duplt'x lamp with tho jeweled glass ahado,
tho three household treasures whioh fortho
life of us wb dared not trust to the tender
morclcs of tho truckman, in spite of his
manifold vows and declarations that he had
moved the vory best fainiliea in Now York,
[ uud somo of 'em ovory May day for ton
years,
AY e eked out our painfully insufficient Income, Boulah and I, by lotting lodgings, and
wo did not ■;l,vi!j,s huvo luck in tho busi-
Bhoso. _ ***■
To speak paradoxically, tho new houso
waa un old house, and not In tho best of re-
put r. Tlio yard gate was off its hinges; ono
f window blind banged distractingly ngaiust
tho north sido whenever the wind took a
Vim eh in that direction, and as Ileulah endeavored to warm a can of cold tea abovo
the flickering gas jot wo could distinctly
lii-iii" lho ruin leaking through on tho floor
•above our heads with a "drop-drop" Uko tho
ticking of a clock.
Ah for me, I had cut my fingers trying to
open tiboxof surdities, and waa dolorously
endeavoring to stanch tlie blood with a far
from iinmuoulato pocket-handkerchief whon
tho last load oamo.
Tho truckman and his assistant wero
tired ami cross, and a littlo tho worso for
beer; tho old horso was played out; tho
rain ('.rove harder nnd harder, and tho wind
blow out tbe shudolcBs gas in tho hall just
as tho littlo old assistant dropped tho basket
that contained tlio bost crockery with a
crash. And wo woro glnd onough when at
length tho last bundle of disorganized storo*
pipes wns Hung into tho basement, hall, and
tho ii-uckiuan vanished liko an ugly dream
into tho mist nud darkness.
It wus not until tho next day that wo discovered tho trunk..
Thero it stood up against tho wall, just
exactly ae if it belonged thore—a snug,
squaro box, noutly covered with canvas,
nndbearlngiiiuunierablo hotol labols, for-
oit'ii und domestic, pasted on it, whilo tho
one initial "C" faced us at either ond in
bluck paint.
"L'rucious mo!" said Boulah. "What's
.his?"
"Perhaps It belongs to ono of tko lodgers," said I.
, "They don't any of'em begin with-C,'"
■reiiHi'iicd Boulah.  "I mean thoir names
Won't"
I  "It'll n mistake, thon," said I. "Somo ono
will bo sending for it directly."
But dny after day overlapped one another,
and no one sent for tho trunk.
Tho truckman ought to know," Bald
Beulah.
Wo haven't got tho truckman's ad-
dross," aaid 1.
'No, to bo suro," sighed Boulah.
'I wonder what Is lu it, anyway," said I
'Do ,vo\i know, Uoulalt! 1 almost think that
mo of that bunch of rusty keys wo found in
'tho basement, pantry would fit it."
■'  "Wo oughtn't to thiuk of Buck a thing,
said Boulah, severely.
Why not!" said I. "Supposo tho contents aro perishable?"
'It would bo equal to highway robbery,"
remonstrated Beulah,
"No, it wouldn't," said I, "and tho old
thing Is bo dreadfully in ono's way. If wo
touid only get it up into tho storo-room boforo tho uow lodgers come."
"Lot's try," said Beulah.
So botween us wo hoisted tho trunk up
two flights of stairs aud put it away in tho
angle of a chimney, w*
"It's awfully heavy," said Boulah, "and
thet'u's Bomol king rattles insido Of It." v
I'vo hoard of dend bodies being cut up
md packed iu trunks sometimes," said I, in
whisper.
"Letty, don't talk nonsense," said Beulah
with n shudder. .-,-
We had had tho trunk about a week in
■inr possession when I went back to tho
old house thut wo had left to got a littlo
j- d-koy which hail somehow boon ovor-
ikcd on tho top shell of a corner oup-
joard.
Jfi's. Dawson, tho old lady who had moved
n, wns disconsolate.
"I'vo lost my boarder," said Bho, "nl*
ndy."
"Dear mcl" said I, "that's a pity."
"As nlco a young doctor as ovor you sot
ij'OB on," Biild sho, "ns wantod tho front
'oom fur uu offlco aud tho back parlor for a
jcd-i'oom."
"That would havo been vory nlco," said I,
''And ull becauso ho couldn't find his
>6itos-" suid Mrs, Dawson. •—-
"Couldn't find his bonosl" echoed I.
^"Surgical   tilings and anatomies, you
now," explained Mrs. Dawson.   "Ho us
ood as intimated as I'd stolo 'om. Now,
-hut, sort of uso could I mnko of a lot of
ones all wired togothor!  Is it likely I'd
tcnl'em!"
Mis. Dawsou was bo solemn nud plalnt-
vo and tlio idea was bo supremely ridicu-
nis that I went off iuto a spasmodic lit of
igg-lng.
I could not help it, standing thoro on a
haii', with half my hoad and shoulders in
iio L-losot, I hopo sho didn't hoar mol
However, I found my bod-key and do-
irted, and whoa I got homo I told tho
lory of tho young dootor and thobonos to
lonluh and ovon gravo Boulah laughed.
"But I'm sorry that tho poor old lady hns
oat hor boarder," said Boulah, gently,
"tioamll" I cried, overwhelmed by a
udtlen romorso;" and I wouldn't have
augTicd lfl could havo holped it, Bfiulah,
3ut I couldn't help iti"
Hnlf an hour afterward I hoard Beulah
sailing ine, But I did not nnswer, for the
vory good reason that at that ospocial
moment I was a martyr to curiosity.
To speak truth, I was ou my kueos boforo
.ho mysterious trunk, trying to ill ouo of
iho equally mysterious bunch of keys to it,
ind I had just reached thut most aggravating Btugo Whon a koy had boon got in ami
Absolutely declined either to turn tho loch

So I kopt vory quiet and presently my

as a tombstone. I knew I wus bolnfcvlng
very badly, but what could I doi
"I'm sorry 1 opened Uio trunk," said J,
but 1 was so dreadfully, awfully curious
to know whut wus in it."
"Boliovn mo; Miss Barry," said lho young
doctor, "1 shall not prosecute you."
"It was very wrong of Lottie," said solemn
Boulah.
"I'm al ways doing something wrong," si^
I, disconsolately.
"But it was so very thoughtful of you,"
said tho doctor to Boulah, "to roinoinbor
that this trunk might possibly beloug to
ino. It sots all tho littlo complications a_
rest at onco."
"And you won't givo up Mrs, Dawsou'a

who waa always thinking of other people.
"Most assuredly not," said Dr. Carson.
But arter they hud gono away I went up

H,,"aaldex-Govornor'Warmoth, of !.■■
Innu, tho othor day to tt Wushlngl u Pes
man, "awny back in 1878. It was thn tisuol
sort of a New England fair—an agricutl iral
horse trot with brass band and pnli-ioal
speeches, Bon Butler was up &••• tho
speech. The audience was en tiio grand
•Jtituil, ono side tho raco track, and Beit
Butler and iho rest of us big guns in tho
judges' --land on tho other side.
cltlaoiis of my native Slate,1 bo-
gan the bold Ben, -tshnll address you to-ttay
on tho subject of Federal, State and municipal taxation.'
"Butler sailed along and had got woll
warmed up whon a corn-fed farmer drove
along tho track with twenty yoke oi oxen
l piled up with corn, puraplHns
and other farm products and n oouplo of
buxom country girls on top. Ho was proud
of that turnout and took his time getting
by tho grand ataud. Of courso Butlt-r had
lostnpiuiitgotout of tho way. Then lie
begun again and wanned up once more.
By that time another farmer had got jcal-
ou3 of lho Impression tlio first ono had
made, nml bo camo joe-hawing down tho
track with thirty yoke of cattle and n still
liggoVciii't loaded away up with ti^fsquaBhca
andpiimpk'usandfom* slashing-looking rcd-
checked girls on his load, ench ono holding
n red ear of corn in her hand. Well, lhat
oiltfitmadon big sensation nn tho grand
stand nnd attracted moro attention than
Jim Robinson driving a twenty-horse circus
okarlot would. Of course Butler bad to
stop again. Ho was getting mad.
'- 'Cau't this thing ho stopped!' ho asked.
1 don't want to bo headed of! by evory
Jake iu New Hampshire who wants to make
a holy show of himself."
"So somo one was sent off up the track to
stop further interruptions, and Butler got
along qb far as llfthly, and waa trot ling red
iu tho faco, when what should como along
;ho track but another ecravim. Tills ouo
had nearly forty yoke of oxen, every ono a
seven-footer, ns sleek as bulls and as fut as
butter. Tiic oartwas Xullof apple-butter,
school-murms, and tho grand stniul know
thom all, and went will with delight. To
say that Butler wns mad would bo useless.
Ho got his oyos almost wide open.
If another ono of thoso Infornal oattle
shows comes along,' snid he, 'I'll leave the
platform. I'll bo hanged if I nm going to bo
brokon in upon every ten minutes.*
'This time a mossongbr was sent up tho
truck, who headed off all the rout, of tho procession- nud Butler went along Bivimmlngly
for a ipiartor of an hour longer, whon a big
brass band struck* np back of the grand
itand, It was n visiting band from Bomo-
wlici*o up State* it thought it was some
pumpkins, nnd It just put in and blow for
dear life, Lord, what a noise it inadol But
Bullet- wasn't going to bo 'phased1 by n big
brass bund, even if two-thirds of lho crowd
were craning their ni-cl:-i for a sight of the
musicians. Just then the lire-bells ovor In
Manchester setup an Infornal olung-wlumg-
ng, and ovory engine in Ilia city hail
paraded out into the fair grounds; Down
die track thoy tore at full speed- ono aftor
.mother, llros up, smoko rolling outof lho
stacks, bolls clanging, and horses laying
their bellies almost on tho ground, whilo
every boy in Manohostor chased along behind, yelling like demons, and tho grand
stand tumbling over each othor to seo whero
lho firo was.
That was tho ond of It. Buticr lore up

Vho Uym'tiH Fund.
Tho collectors of subscriptions fur
the purpose of raising n fund to bcik!
the Hyack racing team loTttcoma, avo
not meeting with tiio liberal support
expected. In most instances\hesubscriptions aro ridiculously small,
whioh ia not encouraging. Nearly
evory citizen wishes to see tho (iro
brigade in au efficient state, but when
it comes lo dollars antl cents inacasu
of tliis kind their appreciation aa guag*
ed by the money already subscribed,
is not very keau. Givo tho firemen n
hearty support for thoy are worthy of it.
Tlio Salmon luilitstrj-.
Tho soekeyes came to tho foro again

TheAtlilellc Exl-Ehl'lo!..
Tlio Y. M. (J. A. gymnastic rluss as-
sault-at-urms took place in tlio drill
shed last night before a good sized
audience. Tho hoodlum clou.cut was
in attendance, aa usual, and beiug unable tu appreciate things it hnd never
soon beforo made itself conspicious by
cat calls, shouting and stamping. To'
such an extant was this carried that
Mr. Davie, gen. sec, wus forced to get
up and remind the disturbers that they
had como iu ou dead head tickets, and
tho loust thoy could do was to keep
quiet. Diirriug this annoyance, llOtt*
over, tlio exhibition passed off well,
thu cIubs acquitting themselves admirably in evon tho most diUieuH exercises. ConsidcriifJ; that tho class
waa organized only a couplo of montha
ugo, it certainly was surprising to seo
the ease nnd grace with whicli thoolnsa
work, tumbling, club swinging, parallel bur exercises, etc., were performed.
Tho individual feats, particularly some
of those ou the horizontal bnr by
Messrs. Kay and Oliver, wero very
well dono. An amusing pnit of tho
prrgrammo was tho representation uf
an encounter botween two knights "if
tho days uf old"; thoy woro mounted
on liery wooden stoeus, nnd after in-
dulging iu iioino lieroic talk came to
blows, tlto buttle ending by one burse
with his rider being upset and consequently plucod /tors dc combat. The
concluding feature of thu entertainment consisted of antique litutuary.
Tlio posing iu this wan extremely lino
nnd ellectivo, and tho tableaux wero
heartily applauded. On tho whole the
exhibition wim a grand oucceaB, nud
Mr. Graham, tlio instructor is to ba
congratulated upou tho state uf proficiency to wliich in so short n time ho
hus brought his pupils- It Is probablo
the ohtortttiumont will bo repeated beforo lung, aud thero is no donbt, if it
ta, the public will thoroughly appreciate it.

Dr. Sliophord professor of anatomy
McGill university) and surgeon of tho
Montreal general hospital, arrived iu
tho city last nif-ht and remained tho
guest of Dr. Fagan until this afternoon, when ho left fur home by the
Atlantic express. During his short
visit Dr. Shepherd .-.visited St, Mary's
hospital, Laidlaw's cannery, tho penitentiary and the Royal City Mills,
with allot which he was highly delighted.
With thu city itsolf he waa moro than
pleased, and deeply regretted that
his stay was necessarily so short. Be*
foro leaving ho paid Capt. Peelo n

skull of a British Columbia cougar,

William Roo, who has been the only
connecting link between tlie city and
the Poplar Island hospital since the establishment uf the latter institution,

fallen into the clutches of tho law by
supplying a vagrant Cape Mudgo Indian with a buttle of rye whiskey.
Roe hns hud much spare time on his
hands of late, and whon not occupied
in sleeping oil'tho effects of n previous
spree, usually busied himself in filling
his ooppora for another bout with hia
favorite antagonist. To-dny Roo forgot himself so far ns to tako a Siwash

Tho facta of tho murderous assault
on Mr. G. W. Rasuro, at Yule, last
week, wliich have been grossly misrepresented, are substantially aa follows : A kiln of lime had been burning threo days and Mike Brennan, the
foreman, went to Mr. Unsure and askod for §20, to go tu Yule nnd pay a bill.
Mr. Rasuro asked him to wait till the
burning was finished, for should any
trouble occur during his absence the
whole batch would be destroyed. Brennan suid ho must go to town, hut
would return immediately, and it any
loss resulted from his absence he
would mnko it good. Aftar promising
not to get drunk Brennan was given
tho money and immediately left for
Yule. A couple ot hours Inter Mr.
Rasuro went to Yale and found Brennan in n saloon quito drunk and unmanageable. Every argumont was
used to induce Brennan tu return to
tho kilns, but ho would nut, though ho
Dgain intimated his willingness to pay
for tho burning if it was spoiled. After
notifying him tlmt ho would be held
responsible Mr. Rasuro returned to
the ttili), Tho men left in charge, uot
thoroughly understanding the proper
method of burning, let tho fires down
nnd thu batch was spoiled, only 52
barrels of lime being saved out uf a
burning of 250 barrels. The rest of
tho men quit, work and were paid off.
When Brennan sobered up ho returned
to tho kilns, worked a few dnys and
wna then replaced by another foreman
aud discharged. In paying him oft*
Mr. Rasure.withhold $20 as part re*
oompense for tho hm he had suffered.
Brennan rofused to take anything but
the full amount; and when ho oould
not get thut loft, aayiug ho would kill
Rasure. Tho next day whilo Mr,
Rasure was on tho Yalo station plat*
form waiting for tho train, Brennan
approached him in a pleasant -manner
and asked him to E.top behind tho
station for a minute. Mr. Rasure declined as ho did not wish to lose the
train. Brennan then demanded his
pay in full, which was again refused.
He thon said, "D—you, you will
nover get away alivo," and made a
dash at Rasure, at tho same timo drawing a bowio.lmifo. Rasuro called to
Brennan, "Keep back or I'll hurt you,"
but this hud no effect nnd Brennan
struck out, the knife inflicting n deep
wound iu ll'tsuru'a arm. lUsuro
struck Brennan with his list, whicli
sent hlm back a stop, but
lie made another charge forward
and a bystander culled, "Look out Rasuro, he's got a knife," jumping buck a
step Rasuro threw up his arm to guard
llie blow, mid iho knife merely cut
through his clothing and scratched tho
flesh over his nipple. The crowd thou
called to Riuturo to run, which he did,
but not till Brennan had made a slash
at his stomach. Picking up a huge
stone Rasuro held his antagonist at
bay for a moment, and Mr. Dodds,
tho government agent, who had been
uu eye witness of the affair, took tho
knifo from Brennan. At this moment
a man approached tho station with a
rifle on his shoulder, and Brennan
made a dash to securo the weapon,
but Mr. Dodds was upou him beforo
ho could obtain lho riflo and placed
him under arrest. Mr. Craig, uf tho
0, P. R., and many others saw tho assault, but it was so sudden and short
that they had nu timo to act. Tho
prisoner was brought to this city yesterday and lodged in tho provincial
gnol.      ,..,-,„„_.

evening thoy noticed a flock of ducks
on tho bay and ,Tumc*i Thompson ran
towards tho boat and grasping the gun
attempted to drag it towards him, when
it exploded, completely shattering his
forearm, hia hand only hanging to hia
wrist by it shred. His companions
went to his asaiatance immediately und
bound his coat around his arm, abovo
the wound, with tho effect of partially
staunching the blood, and then jump*
