Many a young man finds his

it roaches the   interrogation   point.
Charles Dudley Warner heginB

A curious method of obtaining

a Philadelphia man. He hung a
l>oard over his back inscribed "Work
iWanted" and took a stand in a
tiusiucss street He got a job within

Many large meetings have been
held in various cities of Australia at

congratulating Mr. Parnell on his

Large sums of money were raised

A st't'Ango no6i(lent lins befallen a
young lady; tho niece of the Mayor
of Cherveux. Sho was playing
with a little child on her lap, when
sho suddenly threw back her head
and remained motionless. A hairpin
had penetrated her skull. She
never recovered consciousness, and
expired a short time uftcrwards.

Tho Pope's income for 1888
amounted to $2,520,000, of whioh
Jl ,860,000 came from tho St. Peter's
pence and $660,000 from the interest of moneys invested out of Italy.
The outlay of the Vitican only
amounted to §1,700,000. This is a
hightly satisfactory balance sheet,
but it does not take into account
the sum of $2,400,000 which his
holiness received in money aud
presents during his jubilee. And
yot the old gentloman thinks he
wants the "temporal power." Il'e'a!
be satisfied with tho earth.
. The Army and Navy Journal
prints a lettor from a navy officer,
who suggests that the ancients, who
knew the value of oiling troubled
waters, learned this method from
observing tho sea-birds. All fish-
eating birds, cape pigeons, petrels,
and the like, eject oil from thn
mouth when captured. In the
.South Atlantic and South Pacific
the writer has witnessed sea birds
floating in the spaces of comparatively quiet water when the sea
around was rough. The unusual
smoothness of the water was evidently due to considerable quantities
of oil deposited by the birds.
A herd of wild'cattlo was being
driven through the town of San
Diego. A little child was playing
in tbo street near where the cattle
were passing, when ono of the bulls
—a huge creature with large horns
—made a sudden rush at the ■ poor
bairn. To add to the terror of the
scene, tho drover was tipsy, and in
trying to turn the furious animal,
fell off his horse. Warning yells
arose from the spectators as they
beheld ! he fate from which, as it
seemed, nothing could save the
child. At this vory moment a lady
happened to come into the street,
and tbe noise of the tumult at once
attracted her attention. Sho saw
tho child's appalling danger at a
glance, and immediately sprang into
the empty saddle. She succeeded
in onioning up with tbe wild bull,

The immediate purposo of it is to do
away with tho annoying shrieks of
tbo steam whistle by substituting a
machine that can talk. It will
shout "brakes" in place of the
whistling for down brakes. It is all
n matter of valves, key-boards and
pipes. At crossings and stations it
will Bend out a piercing but melodious
voieo of warning. Of course the
ponderous diapason will be heard
all through the train, and oan be
adjusted to announco the approaching station. It may enable unfamiliar passengers to guess at the
name of the place, which the present
oheap - elocution does not often
render possible. If the device does
this work on the railroads, there is
hardly a limit to its possible uses.
It will dispense with the human
voice in a large and varied field.
If musically inclined, it ean onter-
tain travelers with melody, flmd
perhaps song.

SHALLEY'S  CABLE.
London, April 3rd. — A curious
proof of British good will to America
was furnished by last night's performance at the Alhambra. The new
military ballet there brought out introduces troops of different nations as
guests at Portsmouth. Their reception varied greatly but tho most popular of all, according to the morning
papers, were the American soldiers.
France came next and then Italy,
while both Germany and Russia were
roundly hissed, Music hall audiences
are no doubt peculiar, but not to be
despised. It was a music hall whioh
set Jingoism going in 1878. Note
also that the appearance of the Royal
Irish fusiliers was greeted with cries
of "Good old Parnell." More solid
evidence of our English cousin's feeling is supplied by the Queen's message
of sympathy in reference to the catastrophe to the American vessels at
Samoa, and by messages from the British squadron. These last an here,
thought more remarkable than tbe
Queen's, Vory striking also is Admiral Hornby's letter. He is by common consent, the most accomplished
of British Admirals, and it means much
whon he takes pains to point out that
tho good fortune of tho Britiih ibip
"Calliope" implies no superiority of
seamanship over her less fortunate

Tlio provincial lcyis'iituro seems
to have pub up a tort of an ti-Higgins
'■trust." There is certainly a "combine" among the "assembled wisdom"
to knock every last bib of natural
nnd excusable conceit out of the
junior member for Ksquimalt. His
measures am almost invariably
knocked on thu head arid his words
are not conceded thnt weight which
his presence is calculated to inspire.
The '-definite railway policy" motion
of the "honorable member'! was declared out- of Ordor by the speaker,
his well meant amendment to the
poisons act treated with scorn, unci
even his libel bill smothered out of
existence in the second reading.
This bill, tho fuil text of which we
published shortly after its introduction by Mr. Higgins, n few weeks
ago, deserved a better fate. In fact,
ib should have passed, and the motives of those who opposed and voted
against it are very difficult of analysis on any other hypothesis than that
of general obtuseness and crass
ignorance of the subject. The honorable president of the council,
ycieped tho "coal king," was most
violent and bitter, not only in his
denunciation of the measure, but iu
his remarks about the press of the
province generally, although he probably took this means of "getting
even" on one or two of his journalistic bete noirs. Mr. Dunsmuir's experience with a portion of the provincial press, whether his own fault
or not, haa not been particularly
pleasant, and through tbe courts he
has "tasted blood" on more than one
occasion, which is probably the principal reason why he wants his journalistic hunting grounds to remain
unbarred. But, although theso circumstances may constitute a partial
excuse for Mr. Dunsmuir's violent
opposition, that is no reason why
the press of the province should be
denied that fair and reasonable protection to which it is justly entitled,
and which Mr. Higgins* libel bill,
even if it had been slightly amended,
would have done much to insure. A
similar measure journalists throughout tho province should insist upon
becoming law.
Teachers as a class occupy a somewhat  singular  and not altogether
enviable position.    Their vocation
is a most important one—second to
none, and superior to most on that
score—and, recognizing this, a crucial test is provided by the paternal
government of the country or province, as the case may be, in the way
of -more  or  less difficult examinations, which any would-be instructor
of youth must pnss before being intrusted with the exercise of his high
function—shaping, to a large extent,
the character and destiny of nations
iu  the plastic and unfolding minds
of the youug.   The paternal govern-
ernment aforesaid (standing for any
civilized government) still further
protects  its youth by hedging the
teacher round with certain restrictions for their limitation and rules
for their guidance.   The design aud
the general tendency of these paternal safe-guards and regulations are
good  in   their normal operations;
but hnmamtm est errare; and governments   ure only human* there
fore, ib conies to pass that governments, with the best of intentions,
sometimes err, and whut was meant
for  a   wholesome  restriction or a
" beneficent regulation actually turns
out  to   be un irksome incubus or a
galling  fetor.    The   members  of
almost any other profession or calling, finding themselves in such a relation   to any governmental enactment or rule, follow the natural impulse and begin to "kick" vigorously,
and   their "kicking" is usually respected ns coming from those who
know "where the sitoe pinches," and
reasonable amendment in the o.Tending regulation is generally tho speedy
result 'In the case of public school
teachers, however, the case is somewhat different,   They are beholden
to the government of the country,
in a way, for  their salarief*.   The
government, us a rulo, is nob inclined
to  forego   the whip band which it
thui holds over tho semi-dependent
teachers, and when the latter am
inblined  to  complain and seek for
the modification or removal of what
they deem  to be n galling rule, in
their own and their scholars' interests, governments and school boards
are wont to a-J^ess the teachers in
this faihion: "You don't know what
is good for you; just stop your -kick
ing' and leave these matters to our
superior judgment.   If you persist
ih -kicking,' however, you'll have to
go; we can't have any recalcitrants
or mutineers in camp."   Although
docility and harmony may be preserved in most cases by such means,
the danger is that those who should
bo moat competent to detect abuses
and exorescencea in the educational
economy, and  suggest  needed improvement!-—the  teachers  themselves, who are In  actual and constant practice — may be deterred
from opei4fer their mouths when the
intemd of true education demand
it, and degenerate into mere tools
of their own or that ambition and
interest in their calling which is
prerequisite to the highest success.
From an eastern exchange we-learn
that n certain Ontario school board
has actually passed a resolution
"forbidding teachers to discuss
school affairs in tho public press."
It is added that the teachers resent
bitterly the fact that they are thus
gagged, "because they cannot speak
openly without professional ruin."
The paper referred to above comments as follows on the samo subject:
It is not merely a local grievance, for
this muzzling process runs through the
whole educational system. Those who
are best able to throw a light upon such
subjects, tlio teachers, are arbitrarily
rilcuccd, because their criticisms of defects would be inconvenient. Not only
do the boards apply sueh pressure, but
the department and its officers also hive
their black lists of those who dare to
point out imperfections. In fact, the
action of the boards is, in most cases,
merely transmitted from tho department,
more or less directly. The truth is that
the educational portfolio is utilized like
the others to promote in the first place
tho party interests. To carry out this
object school boards and teachers have
alike to be terrorized, How can boards
and teachers criticize costly, defective,
or changing text books, or complain of
trouble-jomo aud injurious regulations,
when a reduced grant or a dismissal may
result from such frank speaking? Even
tho choice of examiners by the central
authorities is made to terve tho same
end of rewarding the submissive, and
showing the critical what thoy lose by
being outspoken, Tho gag thus applied
is especially valuable to the ministry,
because our educational system, since it
has been in political fetters, bas been so
full of evils of various kinds that it
is above all things necessary to prevent
thoso who are well-informed from letting
in the light of day.
So far as our observation goes,
our provincial government is not
free from the tendency we have been
describing. The late "daily marking" "unpleasantness" furnishes an
illustration in point, We are perfectly convinced that the wishes and
the judgment of the great majority
of the teachors of the province have
been over-ridden in this matter, and
that if the teachers had been consulted, and their opinions freely
giVen and respected, the "daily
marking" clause of the school act
amendments would never have been
passed in its present shape. While
it is right and expedient tlmt the
government should exercise a careful
surveillance and have n final voice
in all matters pertaining to the regulation of tho schools, supported in
wholo or in part from the public
treasury, it is just ns muoh in tho
interest of education that tho teachers should consider themselves perfectly free to discuss questions bearing upon their daily work, in the
public press or otherwise, nnd even
to express opinions conflicting with
those of the department. Their
advice as a body should, in fact, be
sought nnd taken, in most cases,
especially when tlie question is one
affecting the internal economy of the
schools. This is only reasonable, and
while exceptional cases might arise,
the consensus of opinion of the
whole teaching staff of a province,
on matters peculiarly within their
judgment, should surely constitute a
safer guide in the formulation of
rules for practice than the dictum of
the department.

Tho Ages of Crowned Heads and
Length of Their Reigns.
Gossipy ramgraphg About tlie Rulers ol
tho Old World's .Effete Mouarohlei
—The Presidents of France
and Switzerland.
Queen Victoria now holds a place among
tho oldest sovereigns of Europe, says the
New York Sun. In May of next year she
will ho TO years of age. Bhe has been on the
tlirouo for half a century. She enjoys good
health and bids fair to live and reign for
many years yet. If Bhe attains the age of
her grandfather, George III.- sho will wield
the copter (barring accidents) up to the
year 1001. If at that time her son, the
Princo of Wales, becomes King, howillhavo
reached the ripo age of 60 years, and his
tendency to baldness will, doubtless, have
becomo more marked .than it Ib now.
The new German Emperor Frederick Is 57
years of age, and his Empress, the daughter
of Queen Victoria, Is 48. Judging from
photographs, ho docs not closely resemble
his departed father in the face, but sho looks
very much like her mother, If Frederick
should live to be as old as his father, and
perhaps he may, he will wear his crown
(burring accideuts) up to the year 1922. His
ailments dim hiB prospects, but the Scotch
Dr. Mackenzie may banish bis ailments,
Tho King of the Belgians, Leopold IL, Ib
53 yeara old, and if he should reign till he
roaches the age at which his father died, he
will be King up tothe year 1910. Ho has
been on tho throne nearly twenty-three
years.
The Emperor of Austria, Francis Joseph,
is 58 years old, and he has worn the imperial crown for forty years. His predecessor was hiB undo, who abdicated the
throno in his favor when but 55 years of
ago, becauso ho was tired of the turmoil
and trouble. Francis Joseph is a polished
scholar, a linguist, an equestrian, an ad*
mlrer of military pomp and a charmer. He
Ib healthy, and bids fair to reign for a long
time yet (barring accidents)'
Tho King of Italy, Humbert© I., is 44
years old, and has worn the crown since
tho death of his father, ten yeara ago. He
is but tho second of the Kings of United
Italy, and his throne is In the eternal oity
ofHome.
The Emperor of Russia, Alexander IH.,
is -13 yeara old, and mounted the throne
aftor the murder of his father, seven years
ago.
Tho King of Denmark, Christian IX., is
TO years of age, or a year older than Queen
Victoria, and is tho second oldest monarch
in Europe. He has wielded the scepter for
a quarter of a century, or just half as long
as the British Queen. One of his daughters
is tho wife of tho Russian Czar; another of
them Is wifo of the heir apparent to the
British crown, and his seoond son Is King
of Greece.
The King of Sweden and Norway, Oscar
II., is in his sixtieth yoar, and has reigned
for sixteen years. He has favored some reforms.
The King of Portugal, Lull I., is SO years
old, and is a man of enterprise and progress. He has boen for twenty-seven years
a King.
Tho power and authority of the King of
Spain, Alfonso XIII., who Is not yet two
years old, is limited by the regency of his
mamma.   He never saw his royal Biro.
Tho King of Greece, or King of the Hellenes, Georgios L, is 43 years of ago, and
has boen King for a quarter of a century, or
s'mco he was 18, at which age ho was eleoted
to tho Hellenic throno. Ho finds it a hard
job to rule the modern Greeks or keep their
favor.
Tho Sovereign, or Bultan of Turkey,
Abdul Hamid II., is 40 years old, and succeeded to tho throne twelvo years ago,when
tho majesty who proceeded him was deposed. He Ib the twenty-eighth Sultan
sinco the conquest of Constantinople by tho
Turks.   •
Tho King of the Netherlands, William
III., is the oldest monarch in Europe, being
now of tho age of 71, and entered lupon
tho fortieth year of his reign lost Bt Fat-
rick's day, though he is a scion of the royal
houso of Orange. Even in Holland the old
monarch is merry at times,
WEATHER  PROGNOSTICS.
A Branch   of   Meteorology Which  Hu.
Proved Itself Very Valuable,
From classic times, down to tho commencement of this century, it can hardly be
said that this branch of meteorology mado
any advance,writes Hon.Ralph Aberwomby
in the Popular Science Monthly. Few, if any,
new prognostics had been discovered, and
neither their physical explanation nor their
meteorological significance bad been found
out, But about eighty years ago some
phj-Bical explanations wero given. It wns
found thut the air always contained u
certain quantity of uucondensed vapor, uud
means were invented for measuring this
amount accurately. From this, tho nature
and conditions of tho formation of dewwero
discovered, und also that before many cases
of rain tho uir became moro charged with
vapor. Tina latter fact gave the explanation of several rain-prognostics. For instance- when Walls sweat, atones grow
black, and clouds form on hilltops, rain muy
bo expected almost all the world over.
But even whon these reasons had boon
discovered, tho science flagged. A lurgo
number of rain prognostics could not bo
shown by any means to depend on nu increase of moisture, and, as vapor cun not
grow in tho air, some explanation waa
needed to account for Ub variable quantify.
And oven whon, in a general way, tho prognostic had boon explained, no olew whatever hud been found for what wo mny call
tho in6toovoli)gicnj significance. Wlmtwus
the i-eliuim of tho damp to the rain I Why
did the prognostic sometimes fall! Why are
there many vain-prognostics associated with
a tolerably dry air . Why iB not ull ruin
preceded by tho samo set of prognostics!
To all theie questions no answer could bo
given. Prognostics, had almost fa lon into
disrepute; they wero considered no pnrt of
science, nnd had been supposed to be only
suitable for rustics and sailors, g
fto tbe subject remained till tho introduction of synoptic charts. Thou it was soon
seen that in temperato regions tho broad
foul/area of weather depend ou tho shnpo of
tho isobarie lines, and later on it was shown
—tho author believes, mainly by himself—
that nearly all prognostics have a definite
place in some shape of isobars, and that ull
the above questions, formerly insolublo, receive u ready explanation. It has also beon
demonstrated that prognostics can hover
bo superseded for uso on board ship, und
phut even in the highest development.!! of
wcuther-forecasting by means of electric
telegraph, prognostics often afford most
valuable information.
A POWERFUL  UNION.
Origin aud Strength of the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineer*-,
Tho locomotivo engineers wero organized
in Detroit, Mich., August 17, 1603, as the
11 Brotherhood of tho Foot Board." At Indianapolis, Ind., August 17,1804, it wa3 reorganized as "Tho Grand International
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers,'' Its
objects are " to combine the interests of
locomotive engineers, to elevate their char-
actor as meu-aud to improve their efficiency.
To be ndmitted to membership tho person must be a "white male, Uvonly-onc
years of ago, able to read and write, o-
good moral character, temperate habits aud
a locomotive engineer In good standing
and actually employed at such occupation
and having had one year's experience at
the timo prepared for membership." Drunkenness is liable to bo punished with expulsion, and the same penalty is attached
to a member for negloct of his duty, for injuring tho proporty of his employers, or who
wilfully endangers the lives of persons,
while under the influence of liquor,
or otherwise. Upon death ot a mem.
ber in good standing and leaving &
family needing aid, the members nro
bound to render rolief. Thon u.*e also sick
benefits attached to tho organization. Tho
Brotherhood seeks to prevent, by " honorable means,-' tho hiring of men for fiVcraon
who will not mako "respectable, comjietent
and intelligent engineers," nud " to abolish
tbo classification of engineer'- In vogue upon somo roads." Thoro are 389 local lodges,
with a membership of 17,000. Tho insurance brunch hns 4,801 membors. Members
aro discouraged from joining other labor
organizations. The organization has had

TRUE LOVE  REWARDED.
How a KnnwiH Farmer Wooed and Won it
Pretty Yankee Lass.
A correspondent of tho NowYork San,
writing from Sholton, Conn., says that
among the mnny pretty girls who assist In
mailing pins In tho Howe pin factory In that
village wus Miss Carrio F. Diiint-s. One
day, several years ago, Miss Dulunt*, in a
spirit of mischief, joined with other girla iu
writing their names and addresses on tho
papers upon whleh pins are stuck. Home
six months aftor Miss Daines received a letter from a farmer in Kansas. Houskcd Miss
Daines to correspond with blm. Miss D-tlncs
flatly rofused. She was satisfied with hor
lot. Thero woro plenty of young men in
her circlo of society, and when her timo
camo, if ever it did, she would marry some
ono Bho knew. But Mr, Pillsbury possessed
the grit of most Western men, and soon
after her refusal to open a correspondence
Mr. Pillsbury appeared ln Shelton. Ho
brought with him credentials as to his respectability and standing, sought an introduction to Miss Daines, and, after a brief
courtship, ho aiked hor to marry him. Miss
Daines liked tho young tpan, but she was
not in love with him, and bo rofused tho
good offer the Kansas farmer made hor.
Dislionrtened, Mr. Pillsbury went homo.
In a few months he mot another Connecticut girl, and finally married her. Tho marriage wns a happy ouo, but after a fow
months tho brido died, and Mr- Pillsbury
was moro determined than ever to get his
flrst love, the pretty Sholton pin-maker. Uo
wrote to her again, telling her of hiB loss,
and askod hor to correspond with him. She
again rofused, but hor refusal was worded
in so sympathetic a manner that he becomo
more than ever determined.
Ho accordingly camo to Sholton again
and, nothing daunted, began a most persistent wooing. At first ho met with no
encouragement, but bis earnestness and devotion began to thaw out the heart of tho
Yankee lass, and after a time Mr. Fills-
bury's pluok won her consent
A few days ago Rev. J. G. Ditmars,
pastor of tho Baptist church, united tbe
porBistent Pillsbury to his sweetheart, and
thoy have gone to their far Western home.
A Lie as Is a Lie,
A big snake story comes from Mount
Holly, in Berkley County, 8. C. A party of
negroes wero cutting upon a lightwood log
of large circumferenco and great length
when it suddenly began to movo slowly off
toward a creek about ton feet distant Tho
negroes wero stricken with terror, and they
at once dropped their axes and stampeded,
Dr. Byrd, in charge of tho hands, tried to
recall them, but they continued tn their
flight, without oven onco looking back. In
the meantime the log was moving steadily
toward the creek. As It fell into the water
thosourco of its power of locomotion wns
revealed in a most astounding' manner.
Hundreds of hissing serpents ".leaped forth
from their hiding placo ln tho log and darted forth in different directions in tho water.
Tho snakes wore of tho genuine water moccasin species, varying in length from ilmt
of abuggyspoketoahoehandle. Dr. Byrd
and others stood by, watching tho snakes
deport, and their going consume] fully
thirty minutes. Three of tho nef-roos who
fled whon the log began to movo havo not
sinco boen hoard from.
The brickmasons and plasterers of Kuu m.\
City, Mo., will probably go out with the
stonemasons if tho latter association shall
not bo given on eight-hour day the coming
season, Tho formor will then demand u
nine-hour day.

Ileal Estulc AiIvuiicch,
Real estato continues on the rise
nnd thero is no sign of abatement in
tho upward tendency of prices. A
sample incident is to hand. Ou March
26th a block containing 32 lots, situated on tho North Arm road, wns bought
from Mr. J. G. Jaques for §3,000.
Tho laat lot in the block was sold yesterday, tho whole transaction netting
the buyers a profit of $1,800 This is
a pretty good showing for one week,
but many other instances could be cited of similar advances. Outside buyers are ou tbe increase and much property is being picked up by them,

Iiici-rasni Travel.
Every day ia ndding largely to our
population, and the number of transient visitors is also largely on the increase. The hotels nre crowded with
guests and it is often a difficult matter to find accomodation for all applicants. When the Queens hotel is opened tho strain will bo somewhat relieved, but this will hardly meet all the
requirements if the present rush of travel continues. Tho register of the
Ct lonial hotel daily shows the arrival
of people from all parts of the continent and many from the old country,
which is the beat evidence that Westminster is becoming widely and favorably known.

Mr. Higgins, be!!-re moving tho
second reading of tht* toll to amend
the act relating to libel i» civil ejseB,
Bald ho was loath to withdraw the bill
aa it wns a very good measure. He
was willing to meet auy object ion i of
honorable members and the bill might
bo amended when desirable.
Mr. Dunsmuir: "1 consider this a
monstrous bill."
Mr. Higgins:   "I beg pardon."
Mr. Dunsmuir: 'Yes, sir, a monstrous bill. 1 don't think sueh a bill
would hold water. It is not iu the
interest of the public. I move in
amendment that the bill bo read n
second timo thia day six months."
Mr. Beaven spoke in favor of the
bill. With some amendments it
might be mado a good measure. Some
amendments to the existing libel law
ia vory badly neoded. Mr. Dunsmuir
wus "ao used to being attacked iu the
newipapen that he could sleep com*
furtablynow" unless he law something about himself in tho newspapers.
Mr. Beaven thought tho honorable

thin skinned.

to bring in a bill next session to compel every man who gut together a little
typo to publish ft newspaper to pass an
examlnaiioii in regard to character,
Ho would nlso compel every newspaper to pay a license just tho same as
saloons. Thero were aome publishers
ir the provinco now who did uot know

might bu somo amendmctilB iiuccBsary
and ho would advise the member for
Kiqitimnlt to withdraw bis bill nnd introduce it next session.
Mr. Boaven thought tho question
one that very deeply concerned the interests and safety of the public..
The attorney-general favored the
principle of the bill but thought some
amendments might be required. He
would, however, voto for tho second
reading.
Mr. Grant was fully in accord with
tho remarks mado by the attorney-
general nnd tho provincial secretary
and would support tho bill. He did
nut think any newspaper in the province would wilfully assail any man _
diameter.
Messrs. Humphreys and Turner
spoke at lenatli in favor of the bill and
referred to the law of libel as it at present existed.
Mr. Theo. Davie opposed the bill
and made quite a lung speech in favor
of tho amendment. Thu bill. was
