The Irish race, in matrimonial
fidelity, challenges the world. Recently, issued statistics on divorce
show this country leading in the
granting of half p, million divorces
in twenty years. Numerous Euro-,
pcati nations emulated ub, .but
opposite Ireland the number is found
only to he eleven. The Irish marry
"for better or for worse, until death
us do .part," and yet this is the race
the Tory government of England
would have us believe devoid of
fidelity, of integrity and honor.—
Am. paper.
The discussion on high schools,
and incidentally upon Ontario's
educational system, was exceedingly
interesting, says the Empire, referring to a debate in the Ontario legislature, nnd continues: It' brought
out the fact that there is a general
agreement about the public school
curriculum being overloaded to the
detriment of thoroughness in the
teaching. The principal objection
to making the imposition of fees at
high schools and collegiate institutes
obligatory, was that it would be a
retrogade step, and opposed to the
spirit of free education. That improvements are desirable in the
puplic school studies was not denied
by any of the speakers.
Tho Times is in a bad way about
Victoria. We clip the following
from an editorial in a recent issue:
"Finally, the city should have a park
on general principles. Victoria
should have something to recommend it to the visitor besides the
fact of its being the -'jumping-off
place of the British possessions in
tho Occident and the scene of the
location of the Driard hotel, To
the man who attaches a romantic
interest to a city whioh represents
an extreme occidental feature, in
conjunction with a hotel famous for
its ability to meet the requirements
of the inner man, a park is a
secondary consideration. But all
men aro not built that way, nnd besides, a oity without a park nowadays is behind the times. Need wo
say anything morel We think
not."   Don't I
The New WestminsterOolumdian,
referring to the celebration whioh
the people of Viotoria intend to hold
on the Queen's Birthday and to the
fact th&t the oitizens of Vancouver
have come to look upon Dominion
Day as the time at which they
expect to be visited by "their uncles,
their cousins and their aunts" frnm
every part of the provinco, thinks
it might be judicious if the people
of the Royal Oity reserved their
special celebration for the week in
which the Provincial Agricultural
Association will hold its annual
meeting in that place. We cordially
agree with the suggestion of our
cotemporary as by such a course the
complete success of tho festivities at
each of tho three places will bo
almost certainly ensured by the
residents of each city co-operating
with those of the others in making
the three celebrations worthy of the
important commercial, political and
social centres of tho province in
which they are held. Suoh events
are of very great benefit ih bringing
together the people of the various
soctions of the province, making
them acquainted with one another
and tending in many ways to
conduce to the object whioh we all
have in view-—the progress and
prosperity of British Oolumbia.—

b BalMea Trade.
A San Frncisco despatch says: Eight
vessel*left port yesterday bound for
Alaska'to engage in the salmon trade.
It is known that there are sixteen more
vessels listed to follow those that have
cleared this yonr, including two new
steamers. This makes a total of forty-
six vessels for Alaska this year. Many
of these, vessels will remain at their
destination until fall, when they will,
it is thought, all come baok loaded with
salmon. It is estimated here that over
700,000 cases of Oregon, British Ool
umbia and Alaska salmon, of the pack
of 1889, have already been sold, and
not a single fish caught. It is understood here that fishing will be commenced on the Columbia river, under
tne law, on the Ist of April.
German BIbrIbb Birds.
In Germany and other countries of
Europe there are many singing birds,
beautiful in plumage musical iu song,
that are not native to America.
Among these are the nightingale, song
thrush, bullfinch, skylark and others.
A year ago a movement was made by
citizens of Fortland to import a thousand of these birds into Oregon, with
tho expectation that they would rapidly
increase in numbers and toon become
as plentiful as tho native birds. They
will alive in May, and will be turned
loose In and near city. The mocking
bird, bob-o-link and red bird are also
to be taken to Oregon from the southern states. The mild climate of Oregon will uo doubt be appreciated by
what The West Shore Magazine calls
"Our Feathered Immigrants," wliich is
tho title of a large art supplement accompanying tho magazine for March.
This (is an elegant piece of artistic
printing in coIo»,and shows these birds.
sixteen distinct kinds, in their natural

CORRESPONDENCE.

Editor Columbian,—Your editorial
strictures upon my letters would have
remained unanswered but for two things.
1st, yoa have made me. say, "and for
Jtfletn miles back," 4c, which should
have been printed "ten miles," Ac, a
slight difference of only 100 square miles.
Again, in using the "Folder in discussing the bridge question, it is necessary to
use a littlo of that seemingly rare gift,
common sense. Traffic will take the
most expeditious route, time is money—
Chilliwhack, Matsqui, Sumas, and the
Delta will Rover cross the bridge except
for plensuro.JA large part of Langley oan
reach tlio city by boat aa cheaply as by
driving; and if every effort Ib not made
to build up our city the railroads that
will shortly form a network through
Surrey, Langley and the Delta will take
the produce by us that should come here.
I might add, by way of parenthesis, that
except it rare cases it is usual for correspondents to withhold their names from
publication, but if yon will publish the
namo of the writer of the article headed
"No Surrender" and of your exceedingly
reliable editorial, you are at liberty to

THE GREAT FRENCH DUEL.

in three places.

THE FINANCIAL CRISIS.
London. March 25.— The markets today are quiet and little or nothing is
doing. Advices from abroad * are
favorable, and foreign securities are
steady. It looks as if the continental
bourses have all recovered from the
effect of the recent crisis in Paris. The
general effect has been minimized by
the joint cfforU of bankers and capitalists, only individual speculators are
the sufferers. The credit foncier,
against which there were whispers of
weakness last night, passed triumphantly through the tremendous pressure
of the lost two weeks and has come out
stronger than ever, having gained by
the disturbance. The banque de Paris
also held its own although it was some- -
what interested in the speculation and
felt slightly the collapse. The bank
of France has not been disturbed by
the large advances made to serve the
moneyed institutions, having been
amptly secured, so the crisis has passed
off without disaster.
HOME BULB INEVITABLE.
London, March 23. — Mr. Jacob
Bright is the authority for stating that
Mr. Froude admitted that the policy
of home rule was inevitable and must
sooner or later be tried. When Mr.
Parnell was told of Mr. b roude's admission, the Irish leader said he was
not in the slightest degree surprised to
to hear it, and he volunteered the information that it was the study of
Froude's work on "the English in Ireland" that first had the effect of making
him a home ruler. Mr. Morley's speech
in the house of commons on "Thursday
night in^ic^. he said it would be irrational-to propose a vdte of censure of
the government now, because fresh
disclosures were made daily, hut that
it would come in good time, has created
a lively discussion on the question: Ib it
possible to bring about a dissolution ?
Several months ago in a conversation
with Mr. Cobb, the liberal member for
Rugby, Mr. Gladstone expressed the
opinion that when tho country is ripe
for dissolution thero were means by
which it could be accomplished. The
ex-premier has recently been reminded
of this conversation and representations
have been made to him from members
below the gangway to the effect that
the time is fast approaching when a
dissolution ought to be demanded,
A DOUBTING THOMAS.
London, March, 23.—Much surprise
is created, not only in Liberal, but in
Conservative circles as weil, at the
publio announcement made by Lord
Salisbury in his speech this week that
he stilf believes that the Parnell letters
were genuine, especially as a piece of
evidence haa been brought out which
put the forgery altogether beyond the
possibility of cavil or dispute. Thil
evidence was supplied by means of the
science of photography ; when the let-
ten wero produced in court they were
photographed in the usual way, These
photographs were afterwards made into enlargements, and the enlargement
disclosed in the clearest way that the
tracing had been made In the forgery
in pencil, including the signature of
Parnell, and that over the pencil tracing, plainly to be seen by the naked
eye, was the careful penmanship of the
forger, and when he missed the exact
tracing the pencil marks became clear
in the photographic plate. Not only
so but the lines the forger hod made
appeared across the face of the letter,
and most astonishing of all, at the foot
and end of the letter the enlarged photograph revealed a most curious scribbling of names. Healy'sname, for example, was pencilled in Roman characters. These facts ihould have dispelled any doubts Lord Salisbury miy
havo had as they did with other members of the cabinet. Even Mr. Froude.
who firmly believed in the "Parnell
letters," when shown one of these photographs by Mr. Jacob Bright, said
that ho considered it to be limply incredible that such a paper as the riffles
should havo published theie letters
without first taking every means in Hi
power to test and establish their genuineness.

The short letter of "Progress," in
another column, ou a question of
privilege- so to speak, will stand a
word of cotnnit-nt. Wo regret tho
verbal error ifferred to, but the
fault is about equally divided between our correspondent and the
■■intelligent compositor"—the words
"lor ten," which tho writer intended, being so carelessly written uud
nearly run together, us to bo casually taken for the o6undtng '-fifteen."
It is not our purposo to wasto any
time making obvious contnulictions
to somo of our correspondent's remarks in the body of his letter, but
to touch briefly on other points,
'•Progress" is evidently laboring under thn mistake that wo want his
name for publication. Nothing could
bo farther from our thoughts, What
wo did say, in effect, on Saturday,
was, that it would have been -better,
in the interests of tho Boss, McL.
Mills, if some one, for the company,
had written authoritatively on tiic
subject, over his own name, which,
we also stated, wo had expected
would bo done. Our correspondent
surely could not have thought we
mount him, as be must know that
his name to un article on such a
subject as he essayed last week, so
far from adding "authority," would
detract, in the public estimation, at
least, from what little weight the
articles might havo under a nom de
plume. "Progress" caps the climax
when he asks us to "publish the
name of tho writer of your exceedingly reliable editorial," The ignorance implied in such a request calls
no more loudly for enlightenmont
than docs the impertinence demand
rebuke. If our correspondent will
take the trouble to sweep his optics
over the head of the column, immediately abovo "our" "exceedingly reliable editorials," ho will find out
who are the responsible parties for
anything published in this paper—
and that is all he has auy business
to know.
Vancouvor has bitten off more
thun she can swallow ; the hands of
her great men—her councillors—are
actually so full of something or other,
high priced "dirt" probably, that
they havo allowed the legislative
harvest to pass without gotting some
very desirable and important amendments to tbo "salt water terminus"
city charter "put 'through the
house." Thore is not sufficient time
now ut tho present session of the
provincial parliament to huvo the
necessary bill introduced and "put
through" in proper order, and it is
understood that a Vancouver delegation, "foolish virgin"*\vise, will
shortly go to James Bay, and, with
lists and heels, pommel frantically
at the doors of tho assembly for a
suspension of the rules. The Vancouver /Jews pleads for a speoial
dispensation thus, nt the same time
boxing tho curs of the delinquents:
"It is, of*course, absolutely necessary
for tbe proper conduot of business of
the legislature that its regulations
and rules of procedure should be observed hy all persons or corporations
who may have occasion to ask for
the passage of any measure, und the
fact that iu such un important matter as the amendment of the city
charter, due regard has not been
paid to this subject, shows that some
person or persons connected with
our municipal authorities has been
negligent in the duties ho was
charged with. Hut it would be an
act of grace for which the government and the legislature would lay
onr citizens under considerable obligations, if somo plan were devised
by them by which the bill embodying the proposed amendments could
be carried through tho house at its
present session." If "Too lato, too
late; ye cannot enter now" should
bo the only greeting the Vnncouvor
"foolish virgins" nro vouchsafed,
shrieked wiordly through the keyhole of tlie closed doors of the assent-
bly, could anyone question the justice of the edict 1 Vancouver's predicament should lie a warning to
other corporations. It was, no
doubt, the naughty "deadlock," whou
mayor and councillors wero in each
other's hair for a month or so, that
is responsible for the city's interests
being thus overlooked and neglected.
We whh Vancouver no loss ns a
consequence, und,- under the circumstances, shall nbt enter a protest to
the suspension of the rules, but don't
list it occur again, we would Bay to
the "empire city" culprits. Take a
leaf from the book of our methodical
and energetio counoil of the royal
city, who aro attending to the city's
interests in legislative matters "right
np to the handle."

Olevelatid is not the sort of a irian
to disappear from view liigpKy bjBr
cause he hai had to step down und
out of -the white houw. The ex-
president, by hii force of ohartfeter
and strong individuality, has beoome
neceMBrytohiieounti-y, and will be
heard from often in the future. Without doubt, while his public utterances will alwayi command that
ntpeot which' (heir weight, judg
ment, and good sound sense entitle
them to receive. Cleveland' made
his first public appeara-nce as a private citizen in New York, on the
evening of tho 16th inst., the 105th
anniversary dinnor of the Friendly
Sons of St. Patrick, at Delinonico's.
At the dinner he received nn ovation
which could not have bee: excelled
in point of warmth and sociability.
The ex-president was attired, it is
stated, in a dress suit and was given
a seat in tho banquet hall on the
right of tho presiding officer, the
mayor of New York occupying the
corresponding seat on tbo other side.
After the banquet, when the president, Joseph J. O'Donoghue's, brief
introduction was concluded with
OI eve land's namo, the diners cheered
lustily. While the din was at its
height, Cleveland, his face u triile
pale, slowly arose and acknowledged
the reception given him. The cheering having finally subsided, he began
his uddross, speaking clearly and
easily. Some of his remarks nre
worthy of being reproduced, und aro
as follows: "The words to which I
respond givo rise to such various and
impressive reflections that I find it
difiicult to determine tho Hue of
thought which should bo followed.
What is naturally and obviously
suggested by the sentiment proposed
is a country marvelous iu its growth
and development, great in its power
and wealth, and freo in its character,
its institutions and ifcspeople. Then-
is ulso suggested a broad and hospitable country which opens its gates
lo the people of all nations who are
willing to assume tbo duties of
American citizenship in exchange
for a share in tho blessings which
God has in store for the American
people. * * * We acknowledge
wo havo received from tho sturdy
men of other lands additions to our
population and truo elements to our
greatness. But otber nations, too,
are grent. They aro prosperous and
rich, and in a measure thoy are free.
States may mean any organized government, tyrannical, monarchal or
free. It is therefore most important,
that we do not miss the reflection
that 'the United States' alone stands
for one government, always free and
founded upon human rights and
equality before the law. Our national life is inseparable from this
union of state. Thus it was launched
upon its career among the nations of
the earth. Its machinery is suited
to no other condition, and its success
depends upon it. Whatever might
be the achievements of separate and
disjointed states, nothing but the
triumph of the United States can be
demonstrated in the eyes of tho
world in tho success of the American
exponent of self-government. Wo
should not be content witli veneration for those who made us a nation,
nor with the sacred and grateful remembrance of thoHO who shed their
blood and gave their lives for its
perpetuation. Wo, too, owe a duty
to the United States. We can at
least teach fraternity and toleration
us the sure foundation of the unity
of our country. If those precepts
aro firmly established in the hearts
of our countrymen, wo shall, to the
extent that we aid in this consummation, perform the duty required
of us in our day and generation.
Let us resolve that no partisan exigency shall excuse the creation or
keeping alive of irritation and jealousy and among a peoplo all charged
with the safety, development nnd
triumph of American institutions,
Our destiny is before us. It can
ly be reached by uniou und harmony. Wo are not called upon to
surrender or jeopardize any results
in favor of our union which we may
have gained in its urmed defence,
but rather to foster and secure those
results through patriotism and magnanimity. In the presence of the
duty God has laid upon us as a nation it should never bo forgotten that
failure rests on dissension and division, and thnt a grudging acknowledgment of our common brotherhood
or any failure of healthy co-operation
in a common patriotic purpose will
surely check our national progress."

Iii ovory city there are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, mako them
objects of special note, not alono iu
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have wc
in tho subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city iu 1862 and
has, through all tho vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trade, maintained .tho even tenor of his way.
His transactions hnve increased
year by year, and tho circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widoning and his firm oxtonding until ho now controls a business un
excelled by anv .similar establishment in British Columbia. His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged und appointed. All this space is filled
with a complete and extensi ve assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paint--, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wall-paper, wooden-
wnre, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, houso furnishings,
iron pipe and lilting.--. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and does overy variety df
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, eto. There is no
houso in tho trade which carries a
more completo stock or whose facilities surpass thoso of this establishment for supplying the trade with
lirst-cluss goods at lowest quotations.
The length of timo this gentleman
has been in business and the success ho has attained aro better
recommendations than tho loudest
praise wo could possibly give. Wo
may mention, however, to our readers who have not yot become acquainted with this linn, that none
in the Northwest has a better reputation for fair and honorable dealing.

And heavy hearts rejoico—

CHINESE DOCTOBS.
Their Pills, Poultices and General
Methods of Praotloe.
What tho Chinese know of modicino and
anatomy may, according to tho New York
- Jic-altt, bo summod up aa follows s To tbem
tho body Is a mash ot flash, supported by
tho bony framowoi-k aud hold in place by
tho skin, Tlio blood* flows through, but
whether continuously In a circle or not is
not dourly understood.
Tho brain Is the soat of tbo yln, or fomalo
principle, tho baso of which has a sort of
telegraphic communication with the wholo
body through tho marrow. In tbo thorax
aro tho lungs, consisting of six lobes, four
on ono side and two on tbo other. Theso
lobes rojiulato tho muscular activity of various parte of tho body. Respiration is performed in tho abdominal region, which, in
the case of a scholar, is tilled wltb learning.
The heart is immediately below tho lungs,
and Is the abodo of tho thinking principle.
Tbe liver is at the right of the heart, aud is
ttie seat of tho passions.
Tho gall bladder supplies tho human being with courage; Chinoso history mentions a great General whoso gall bladder
was as largo as a quart measure. From this
his valor may bo inferred. It Is not an uncommon thing for tho Chineso soldiers to eat
the gall of fierce animals for tho purposo of
increasing their courage. Their ideas concerning digestion and assimilation of food
arc, oqually misty.
Sickness is as often ascribed to tbo
agency of ovil spirits as to natural eausos.
But if health results from tho right proportions of tho fivo elements—firo, earth, metal,
wood and wator—that go to mako up tho
hitman form divine, tho wrong proportions
of tho samo will bring about all sorts of diseases.
Tho Chinese have, accordingly, two classes
of doctors—ono that mokes a specialty of
diseases caused by ovil spirits, and tho
other that comprises all regular practitioners, whoso duty is tq restore tho flvo elements to their normal portions.
Tho confidence placed In tho diagnostic
virtues of tho pulse is unlimited. Tho radial
pulso Is not tho only ono depended upon,
but thero aro threo places on tbo right
wrist where tho pulso is ton, and the somo
number on tbo loft. Chineso doctors distinguish twonty-four dJfforont. kinds of
pulso beats. According as the, j-f-pflsuro is
light or heavy tboy' aro enabled to diagnoso
tbo state of tho organs. The right wrist
gives Information concerning tho condition
oftho heart and intestines, and the leftcon-
corning the condition of tho stomnoh and
lungs.
Tho skin Ib considered to-rank In Importance next to tho pulso. Name* oro given
to almost evory squaro :nch of it. Uenco
Chineso doctors aro especial ly littoral with
poultices and plasters. Not infroquoutly
the plaster that has effected a euro is pas tod
on tho wall of a doctor's office. Tbo num-
bor of suoh plasters indicate tho quality of
tho practitioner and tho extent of his ox-
porienco. -
Chinese doctors are also vory liberal with
their doses of medicine. In this matter of
sizo thoy aro catering to tbe publio taste,
for their patient is not pleased with cither
simple or small doses. His modicino must
be compounded of at least flvo different
drugs, lu quantities largo enough to havo a
tolling effect Hence tbo Chineso havo
nolthor rospeet nor uso for homcopathists.
No sugar-coated pills for them. Tho blocker
and thicker the mixture tho better aro they
suited. Tho efficacy of a doso Is ia direct
proportion to its sizo and nauseousnoBs.
Tho ingredients used in the art'of healing
arc mainly vegotablo substances, of which
cinnamon and ginsong oro the most costly
an> i highly prized. But mineral substances,
such as plumbago, BUlphato of copper, colonic ■!, arsenic and red precipitate are just as
often prescribed. In addition to theso,
various animal substances aro deemed valuable for healing purposes.
Tho Chinoso medical profession may he
said to bo self-taught, for they did not learn
their art in icbools of mediolne under distinguished specialists. They ore mostly
scholars wbo hare failed to pass the Government competitive examinations and are
too lazy to teach. Tho perusal of several
standard and ancient medical books is sufficient to qualify a man for practice. He
hangs out his sign and trusts to chance to
procure him his first patients and to luck
In his cxporimontB oa thom. Unless he
prescribes deadly drugs ho is just as likely
to euro as to kill. In tbo former caso Dame
Nature deserves all tho credit, Howovor,
his specifics aro almost suro to heal certain
simple ailments.
Thero aro fashlonablo doctors as woll as
hacks among tho Chinoso Galons. Tho
former never go out oxcopt in Sedan chairs,
and tho largo fees wbloh thoy havo a right
to expect aro banded them wrapped up in
red papor on their departure. Tho hooks'
foes aro somotlmos made dependent on
thoir success. As Chinoso ladles aro not
permitted to bo seen by straugo mon, thoy
aro shielded from view by a curtain with
the excoptlon of thoir wrists, thrust out to
bo felt by tho physician.
Tho paticut ulso pays for tbo hire of tbo
Sedan chair, according to tho distanco he
bas como, Tho dootor does not present his
hill or demand a certain sum for hi& services; ho accepts whatever is given him.
But if ho thinks he has been underpaid he
•will bo " busy >' tho noxt timo you have occasion to summon him. His fees vary from
ten cents to soveral dollars for each visit,
Tho  successfully  dosed pationt often
the upper part of tho back, is also quito ancient. Barbers combine it with tbo business of shaving and queue braiding, it in
good in certain cases of neuralgic headuulica.
Phlebotomy, or blood-lotting, is performed
by moans of cupping and leeching, but
never resorted to in fevers, for fevors aro
likened to a pot boiling. The thing is to reduce tho firo and not the water. Hence ico
that has turned into, water, no mat*
ter how long ago, is deemed a sovereign
remedy for fevors..
Tho American patent mediolne man has
his prototype in China, generally to ho found
in front of temples and in public squares.
Though not so audacious as tho American,
ho is equally mendacious In proclaiming tho
unapproachable virtues of bis nostrums.
A Chinoso lady bad a mole removed after
this fashion: By means of a brush a littlo
caustic was laid on tho mole, whoro it remained for au hour. Tho skin about the
molo turned block after a day or-two, and
in a week came off, dragging tho molo
along with it and leaving a hardly perceptible scar bohind. Thofeo charged was ton
cash—equivalent to ono cent in American
money,
I have hitherto doscrlbod the methods of
tho " regular school." Tho faith-cure mon
remain to ho treated. They aro mostly
Troist priests, who fatten on tho superstitious foai's of tho Ignorant. Thoy do not
toll thu putlont that his disease is only u
matter of Imagination, but mako him believo that bo Ib troubled with evil spirits.
Then they proceed to exorcise him and force
the spirits to abandon their prey by various
incantations or by the uso of charms, which
aro merely piocCB of yollow papor bearing
cabalistic characters. Ono copy is put on
tha bed curtain, another is worn noxt tho
skin, a third is burnod and its osho-j dissolved lu water and drunk by tho patient.
Somctimea a medium prescribes whilo in
0 trance.
Thon, again, an angry deity is supposed
to Inflict bodily pain on those who have
offended him. Priests aro hired to propitiate hlm by tho singing of chants, tho burning of inconso nud tho offonng of food. If
the pationt trots woll tho idol gets tho credit
and a thank offering. If ho becomes worse
It is becauso ho lacks faith and has not
spent money enough. If ho dies " It is tbe
will of Hoavon." Tho idol is " well fixed "
in any caso. Tho sick man usually drinks
the ashes of tbo inconso dissolved in too.
Again, an Idol may bo asked to proscribe
directly, in tho following manner:
Ono hundred different prescriptions ore
printed and ono hundred bamboo slips numbered to correspond to thom are put into a
holdar, which is shaken until ono slip drops
out. Tho proscription similarly numbered
is picked out and prepared at tho dim*
storo liko any othor, and tbo resulting
coction is then swauowca as any ordinary
compound. The chances aro ton to ono in
favor of rccovory unloss tho diseoso is incurable or tho modicino too strong. Docs
not faith work wonders—for somo people!
If nothing else will do a priest Is hired to
climb a ladder whoso rungs aro inado of
swords with the odgo turned upward (ho la
barefoot, mind), whilo an attendant boato a
gong. Tho swords aro enough to scare
away evil spirits, but when tho priest repeats a powerful spell thoy aro obliged to
seek a warmer clime. Thon, too, tho gods
may bo induced to pity a sick man who
takes so muoh trouble (to oxpoao othor poo-
plo's feot), In ordor to propitiate tbem.
A  LAWYER'S  START.
How a Pittsburgh Attorney Brought a Femalo Doudbeut to Timo.
Not more than two years ago there lived
at ono of tho principal hotels in this city,
says tho Pittsburgh Dispatch, a lady of
means. It is said that In round numbers
sho was worth moro than 8100,000. Sho
drossed vory handsomely, kept a carriage
and pair and moved In what Thackoray's
Jooms would call "tho uppah suckles" of so*
cioty. Thoro Is no need to identify her moro
closoly.
Her striking peculiarity—tho only ouo she
had—was a deep-rooted aversion to paying
bills. Sho always sottled promptly her
hotel bill, and tho othor bills which tbo
maintenance of her establishment produced—the Hvory-stablo's bill, for example
-woro punctually paid. But all othors sho
incurred sho novor paid If sho could by any
means avoid doing so.
I am told tbat sho used to drive up to a
first-class storo, order a sealskin dolman, a
few Bilk dresses, diamonds or what not, to
bo sont to her hotel, snying that she would
call around in a fow days and pay for thorn.
Tha goods wero always sent and* that was
tho ond of it. Bills wero rendered and bills
woro sent again, but my lady ignored thom
altogether. Sho had obtained tho goods ia
tho lirst placo because sho was known to bo
a wealthy woman and of good standing In
socioty. For tho same reason sho was not
sued wbon sho refused to pay. Hor many
wealthy and honest frionds might be. offended if sho woro sued, tho storekeepers
reasoned and they boro tbo loss as well as
thoy could.
Bhe would novor have paid a cent on any
of say a dozen largo bills if a smart collection agont had not applied d novel screw to
hor pocket-book.
Tho collection agent ln question heard of
this fashlonablo doadbeat's performances,
and as ho was drumming his heols In an
SxVi offlco on Grant streot in an unprofitable
idleness nt tho timo bo thought ho could afford to risk his timo—he had nothing else
to risk—In experimenting upon hor.
Accordingly ho called upon ono of her
creditors to whom sho owed a bill of tMOO.
He asked tho merchant to allow blm to try
to collect tho money. Tho morchant warned
him that tt would bo labor lost, but tho collector was willing to mako tho attempt. Ho
got a promise of 60 por cent, of tho ontiro
bill if be could collect It.
Then ho sot to work. Ho wrote tlio lady
a polite npto asking her to call at his oflice.
It was not answered. Ho wrote a littlo
sharper note. No answer camo. Thon ho
stated his claim in vory plain lotters aud
figures on a postal card. The lady herself
camo in groat agitation to answer tho cord,
protested against tho uso of postal
cards, which tho hotel clerks, tbo boll-boys
and ovory body could road.
Pay tho bill, madam,'1 said the collector,
"and I'll wait upon you myself with the receipt."
Ho got two hundred dollars on account at
that session. Tbo balance camo tho next day.
Tho merchant was delighted, and paid tho
fifty per cont. commission gladly. Then tho
collector went to ovory storo of any proini-
neuco-in tho city, and whorovor ho found a
bill against this lady ho bought it as cheap
aa bo could. Most of thom bo bought for a
moro song.
Ho had somo littlo difficulty ln turning all
of thoso bod debts into cash, but Ho alwuys
foil book on tho postal-card squcozor, aad it
always did its work quickly aud effectually.
In all, I am told that his profit ou theso
transactions amounted to moro than (3,000.

this all occurred sinco January 1881 when he

and its journey through the water

Charged with Larceny*
At the district court this morning,
Captain Pittendrigh, J. P., and P.
McTieman, J. P., presided. They
were called upon to investigate the
charge of larceny against James L.
Sprou*ter, who in accused of stealing
two $20 bank notes, a half sovereign
and sumo small ohnnge contained in a
pocket book belonging to Mr. G. W.
McRae, tho school teacher at Port
Moody. Sprouater was man of nil
work in the hotel and had access to nil
.the rooms. He was, it is claimed,
working for his board only and did not
receive any pay, but this will not bo
proven until Mr. Scott's evidence is
heard. SprouBter loft the hotel on
Saturday, tbe Kith inst., nnd came tu
Westminater. McRae did not miss
the money until tho following Thursday, and his suspicions fell'on Sprous-
ter. With tho assistanco of tho polico
it was learned thnt the accused had
changed a 820 bill at M, Des Brisny's
store, and the arrest followed. A remand for a week wub asked by Mr.
Moresby, and granted by the mogis*'
trates. <
The Norlh Arm Channel.
The people along the north arm oi
tho Fraser, and the cannery mon in
particular, are beginning to agitate in
favor of a means whereby the current
in tho north arm of the river may be
increased. The building of tho now
wharves from the O.P.ft. station westwards, it is claimed, has lessened tho
volume of water running into the
north arm and this has had the effect
uf blooklng up tho channel to n considerable extent. It is proposed time
a tier of mattrasses, 500 feet long, .bo
extended southward from the head of
Lulu Island, This it Is thought would
turn a sufficient quantity of water into
the north arm to keep the channel
from blocking up and would poBBibly
deepen it considerably and without
detriment to the main ohannol. There
are a number of sand bars at different
points along the north arm, whiah run
out n considerable distance from tlm
land and form obstructions to navigation, and an effort will be made to
have tbo dredger, employed . ou those
nfter its duties iti connection* -with the
harbor improvements' are completed.
These matters will be laid before the
board of trade at nn early data for the
consideration of thst body. "'■■"
THE CHURCHES.
Whai Wus Spoken at Home of tbe t'lly
aanctnarlcit Yesterday.
METHODIST   ctlUnCll.
Hov. Mi*. Jauiiosuti preached from
Matt. 25o., 40r.—"And these shall go
away lulb everlasting punishment;
but the righteous into lifo eternal"—
nnd spoke us follows:—At tlio judgment of the great day, Jesus Christ,
who is to be the Judge Himself, tells
us there will be two possibilities, two
classes, two sentences: The righteous
will bo welcomed to enjoy tho incorruptible inheritance, and those who,
before this groat tribunal, are found
with Bin stains, and stationed ou the
left hnnd of tbo Judgo, will he committed to everlasting punishment.
Lot us consider n little while tho first
phase uf the subject (one ucldum
spoken of by Christ Himself), Tho
idea of future punishment is not to be
lightly taken; eternity as a great attribute makes the great, momentous,
question, of how we shall spend thnt
eternity, one that cannot bo trifled
with; and yet there nre so many objections urged against an unending future. First, its opponents any that
the dootrino itself is unreasonable,
nnd surely thnt hn very weak argument, ns our weak understanding can
never bo a test of holy truth. Things
have happened in our lifetimes even,
which beforo thoy did happen wo said
woro impossible, and shall we bring
tho great God to tho bur uf our finite
understanding - a weak und utterly incapable tribunal. Thou some any thnt
death signifies tho end—extinction and
annihilation—and that tho.uee of thu
word death as tho cud of sin is a very
queer term to uso und cannot imply
everlasting punishment, Let ua luok
at the uftirmativu evidence: First,
there is no language possible to use, tu
make it plainer, in conveying the idea
of everlasting punishment than is used
throughout nil scripture in denoting
the eternity of hell; second, scripture
declares broadly and plainly that the
death of tho wicked nnd tho life.of the
righteous are of equal duration in their
final destinies; and, third, thero aro
many passages of scripture that imply,
though they do not ubaolutoly state,
the endless term of punishment, aud,
as sin nover relents, therefore God'B
wrath abides: the wicked are driven
away iu their wickedness, carrying
with than and perpetuating iu eternity
their mode of life aa followed, in tho
world; for Sb. Paul says, as man has
sown, so shall ho reap. As thero is
nothing in pain or punishment in this
world that will make the guilty relent,
God's grnco comes to the soul and
causes repentance; but in tho placo uf
futuro wue thero will be no dispensation of grace, no smile of mercy. God
can not omploy any greater means
than He has employed to save the sinner; in tho infinite source of tho Godhead no highor or moro priceless means
could bo employed; for, if the sinner
could bo saved in any other way, the
incarnation on Calvary would appear
useless and unnecessary. Tho judg-
100111 of tho great dny is final and gives
fixedness of things future, the eoonomy
of grace ends, tho Inst separation of
families takes placo, the gulf ia fixed,
and the shutting in and out of henven
is filial, and tho economy of justice
commences, and churactes. "Mf} tfostipy
are fixed for over. This ib ' a subject
uut pleasant to contemplate, and you
may wonder why I notice it to-day.
It is that you mny escape lhe awful
doom, that you mny uut go through
life carelessly, and then find the fact
true jn the end that there is no mercy
beyond the tomb, audi speak uot to
frighten you, but as Paul, to persuade
you; and tu you who are saved, washed, sanctified, regenerated, I say, rejoice iu that you cannot oven conceive
tho fullness ef the preparation, fpfeyuu
iu heaven implied in tho text; rejoice
in that you will hail with delight a
participation in ' the blessed inheritance with those of the adopted family
of God. The rev. gentleman was
listened to with marked attention nnd
interest.
ST.   I'ATJt's CHURCH.
At tho Reformed Episcopal ohurch
last evening Rov. Thos. Haddon
preached from Proverbs 4 a, 23 v.—*
"Keep thy heart with nil diligence;
fur out uf it are the insucs uf life,"
nnd spoko substantially as follows:
Solomon knew a great deal about the
human heart, for he had allowed himself tu bo led by it into wrong; hence
he gives advice \yith regard to its keeping, in the most emphatic terms. Our
lifo is what bho heart makes it, and
tho outward walk of life is tho reflection of what exists in the heart The
life may bo modified to meet the eyo
of thoso with whom wo come in contact, but tho moral tcxturo can only be
us the heart makes it. It is tho most
important part of man, and rules all
his forces and actions. It is the fountain of life; the life's actions may bo
modified by dispusition, but in nearly
every case, ns in tho text, tho issues
uf lifo permento from the heart, and,
as children are neglected in their early
training, so they grow in sin, and it
must present itself in their lives. The
heart is bad to begin with, and needs
braining and the change by grace. The
quest inn naturally arises, and a very
difficult one lo answer: why does this
inconceivable shadnwodness exist in
human nature, that wo are troubled
with tho heart more than anything else I
Paul folt the burden when ho said "Oh
wretched man thut I am," &c. Paul's
intellect wns right, but his iion.it was
wrong, aud does this shndowodness
come from training ur example? Christ
nays, "Out of tho heart the mouth
speaketh." Tho heait and character
stand in tho same relation as tho tree
and fruit, and this should make ub
desire, liko David when he-mid "Create
in mo a new heart und renew a right
spirit within me." The heart ought
to bo kept, becauso it is king of the
intellect* Some peoplo think the intellect superior io tho heart,' I think
the opposite, and tho bible says, "As
a man thinkelh in his heart, so is he."
The intellect may be convinced, but
tho heart very often does not respond,
und so shows mastery over the intellect
being the con trolling power; and this
explains many instances of infidelity.
The heart dislikes God, then the intellect persuades thnt tho idea of God
in the bible is wrong, nnd tho combined power of heart and intellect
compels man to rebel. The heart is
tho controller of tho actions, and when
the heart is changed, thnt  change  is
Sortrayod in the actions. Then the
cart determines tho destiny; death
does not transform the heart; this
ohango is only made by gtacn through
faith, after repentance; death, finding the heart holy or unholy, eannot
change it, and it is in time that the
heart weaves tho weal or woo of eternity. How can the heart be kept? It
is bo subtle, persuasive, impressive,
and should he kept safe and under
proper control, into whose custody J
then.shall the  heart be committed?
Tho bible supplies the answer, "My
son give we thy heart," and we know
whose voice in tenderness as a father
claims the right to protect against all
influences of tlie evil one, breaking
tho yoke, making the heart clean,
peaceful, radiant, joyous, a never failing fountain of blessing and. benediction to our lives, and, as tho bible. declares, our bodies should bo temples
of tho Holy Spirit, so our heart should
bo a dwelling place for Jesus. Bring
your heart to Him.batho it in Hi's sunshine, nnd let tho aweet influences uf
Jesus and His atonement upon Calvary
Burround it nnd watch it with a. careful eye, nud defend it against all foes,
by putting un tho wfiolo armoifr of
God. Brethern, everything depends
upon tho keeping of tho heart, for out
of it nro the issues of life,
ST, ANDREW H CD URO II,
Rev, Thos, Seoulor preached iu the
Presbyterian church last evening from
Jeremiah IGo. pnrt llty.--"Surely our
fathers huvo inherited lies, vanity,
and things wherein thero is no profit"
—and spoko ns follows ; I purpose
speaking this evening more especially
to theyoung. To most youngpeoploa religious lifo seems to be nu unprofitable
thing. They will leave religion until
they havo got done with the world and
its enchantments. Thoy think religion
good to havo when men die, but it iB
not worth having to accompany thom
through Hfu. This idea, alas is too
often possessed by tho youug, In, tlio
morn of life thoy are possessed with
the dcBiro for happiness, and, they
think that this desire can only bo
gratified in sources thnt nro alien from
God. But we think that in this they
uro mistaken. The desire for happiness is thu desire for God Himself.
It is bho longing of an immortal spirit
which can be satisfied only with God.
He is tho fountain of all good and the
source of truo happiness. Tho Chris*
tint) finds great pleasure and profit in
the contemplation of all God s works.
Ho can say with David, "How inani-1
fold are Thy works; in wisdom Thou
hast made them all." He has pleasure
in exercising himself to keep his conscience void of offence toward God and
toward man. Within and around the
Chistiun thero is peace and satisfaction. Surely in these things there is
profit. This is what we desire uf you,
my young frionds, to possess, things
in which there is profit, and wo know
that it is only in the possession of an
intereat in the redemptive work of tho
Lord Jesus Christ that wo can enjoy
things of this life, Tho speaker then
noticed some things in which there
waa no profit—the pleasures of the
ball-room, of the intoxicating cup,'and
also of a large class of fictitious literature, dwelling at considerable length
on tho great influence for evil that
was exerted by pernicious literature,
upon tho young especially, and urging
thom to road good books which would
profit thom, of which thero were many,
but especially to road the Bible, tnd
best of all bunks, which would profit
thom for time and eternity. Parents
should bo as careful with respect to the
books which their children rend as
with regard to their companions. The
preacher closed by asking all to take
the bible as the man nf their counsel
aud they would thus be led into paths
of honor, of virtue, and up tu immortality and eternal life.
THE CHURCH MILITANT. '_■
,,, The Salvation people are celebrating
the anniversary of their entrance into
this city. Last evening their hall was
packed full of all sorts nnd sites.
Adjutant Scott, who is conducting the
services, took for Iub subject the 12th
chapter of Matthew, and read from the
38th to the 42nd verses (both included), and showed in the most forcible
manner thut if the Ninevites repented
at the preaching of Jonah, tho people
of fTew Westminster, who are bo highly
favored with the means of grace
though the various church agencies
and tho light of the Bible iu tho 10th
century, will beheld muoh more res-
Sonsible than the Ninevites would
ave beon, turning a deaf oar to God's
messenger. His remarks were short
and pithy and very much to the point.
He was followed by his two lieutenants in tho same strain. The next
speaker proved to a demonstration
that the human family was lost main
and needed a Saviour and that Christ
was tho only Saviour. Tho third and
last speaker showed the dreadful consequence of rejecting the great salvation purchased by Christ's blood, hnd
urged his hearers to floe to the refuge,
and seek pardon and redemption
through faith in Christ, und a holy
lifo, whioh was the promised privilege
of all thoso who would lay down their
weapons of rebellion nnd trust in
promised nid through God's Holy
Spirit. _______________
