NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Says London Truth : Tlio Duke
of Norfolk appears to havo becomo
a greengrocer, for I hear that ho is
not above telling hit fruit, vegetables, and flowers at current market ratos, either wholesale or retail.
Visitors to Arundol OaBtlo gardens
may purchase anything thoy fancy,
and large hampers of produce and
huge baskets of cut flowers are despatched several times a week to
Brighton and Portsmouth. Undor
the circumstances, it suems decidedly
unfair while the ilukp is driving a
roaring trade, that his glasshouses
should be rated merely as pleasure
grounds, whereas professod nurserymen have to pay a very much higher
rate. Tho Duke has quite enough
advantage ovor tho ordinary tradesman without being favoured in tho
ijuftlor of rates.      • u,

Very Complete, lengthy, and
Exhaustive Document.
An'exclmngc sayi : Sir Oharles
laiiBsell, oy.-AUornuy-Ciimoml und
leading council for Mr. Parnell, has
a well-known trick of driving a
point homo to a jury which is inimitable by any other advocate. Ho
begins to lead up to it with his
right hand in his tail-pooket, under
his gown. Thence ho extracts a
snuffbox, transfers it to his left hand,
opens it, takes a pinch between the
finger and thumb of his right, and
with the box still in his left hand,
and the pinch still in transitu, ho
makes his point unerringly, so that
it reaches his hearers' minds at the
precise moment at which the pinch
reaches its destination. . Then, with
an inimitable flourish of a red and
yellow bandanna, tho oratorical
effort is complete, But to be properly appreciated it must be seen.

A writer in the New York Graphic contributes the following choice
morceau : "Here is Mrs. Amelia
Rives Ohanler again, and she -..ii
seeking notoriety as usual. Thitv
timo it is pot in "a literary- way,
however, but by an? eocoiitrioity of
dross that has sot the -women talking and the men laughing. She
appeared, at an afternoon tea the
othor day-and why people give
aftornoon teas nobody has ever yet
explained—and whon she entered
tho house to which she had beon
invited there peoped out from 'beneath hor short walking costume a'
pair of kid shoes made like a glove;
and tho admirers of ''The Quick or
tho Dead" have gono into ecstneics
over the new innovation in woman's
foot .gear. And yet possibly tho
commonsenso woman will not think
overmuch of Mrs. Ohanler's new departure in dross. Certainly the
average man will not." We should
say not.   It is just a littlo toe, toe.
Ho Deplores the Fact that .High
Tariff is to be Maintained to
General Disadvantage,
The Fisheries Question He Hopes
Will be Immediately Settled ou
the Terms Agreed on.

An exchange has this goood advice for some people who want to
believe themselves bettor than their
neighbors: Suppose that those
superior people who won't have anything to do with politics and who
aro always telling us that "one party
is as bad as another," were to give us
a change and tell us that "one party
is hb good as another"; it would
show their lofty impartiality just as
well, it would givo a more truthful
view of the case and it would "elevate politics" much more effectually
than the groaning and oonsorious
spirit ever will. It is not true today that the public men of Canada,
taken as a whole, are self-seeking,
unscrupulous domagogues; but nothing would so muoh tend to bring
about that state of things as tho
censorious habit, the habit of wholesale depreciation of public men, for
its effect is to drivo out of public
lifo sensitive and conscientious men
and leave the oountry a proy to the
unscrupulous and tho thick-skinned.
Nearly all the Canadian, public men
iu Federal and Provincial politics
are men whoso private lives aro
without reproach. A large majority of them are patriotic men,
desirous of advancing tho interests
of Canada, though, holding different
views ns to how that object is to be
attained. Some of them may bo
self-seeking, but in the caso of others
the moro fact of thoir boing in public
lifo at all precludes the idea that
they aro actuated by any lower
motive than nn honorable ambition,
'fake tho case of the lion. Kiiward
Blake, who in spite of ingratitutc
and calumny, gave many of the host
years of his life to Canada, relinquishing the princely earning which
might havo been his if ho had attended wholly to his practice at tho bar.
The salaries of Cabinet 31 misters, as
a rulo, nre much smaller than tho
incomes of men occupying private
positions of much less importance
The manager of ono of our largest
batiks or loan conipanys,for instance,
would laugh at the idea of accepting
tlio salary of tho Finance Minister
of Canada. Mr. Van Homo's salary
is six or seven times as large us that
of tho Minister of Railways, Thore
are a dozen Toronto lawyers whoso
incomes far exceed that of tho Minister of Justice. The caso with reference to Provincial Ministers is
still stronger, for their incomos aro
not much more than half thoso of
tlio members of the Dominion Cabinet. The school of politics is n
rough one, but its effects are salutary. Criticism knocks tho pomp-
ousness and self-conceit out of a
humblor man, and the canvas teaches
him a lesson of conrtcsty and fraternity whioh are not forgotten after
eleohon day.
Childnn Cryfor Pitcher'sCastorla
THE   rilESIDENT S MKSSAdl*.
Washing-hut, Dec. 3.—After referring to the country's survival for hundred years, tho president says in his
mcasuj'o that tho survival is not auf-
liciunt to tisBume that wo no longer
have dangers to fear. Iu itsmaintain-
atico in early stages combinations,
monopolies and aggressions of capital
wero either avoided or sternly regulated and restrained. Tho president refers to the growth and prosperity of
tho country, but says we tind wealth
nnd luxury mingled with poverty. He
alludes tothe farmers and deplores
thoir condition saying they aro forced
hy tho government to pay for tho
benefit of others, and that tho scanty
returns of their labor fail to leave a
margin for acouiuulntion. Ho aiiys
the working men are no longer frightened by tho cry that their wages aro
endangerod by a just revision of our
tariff laws, and that they will demand
through such a revision steadier employment and cheaper means of living.
Continuing tho president say*-:—"In
part a just and sensible unison of our
tariff laws should be mado for tho relief of those our countrymen who suffer under tho present condition; such a
revision would receivo tho support of
nil who lovo the justice and equality
duo American citizenship. Extravagant appropriations of publio money
witli all thoir demoralization consequences should not be tolerated." He
an-ueB that it can't be denied that selfish and private interests, so persistently heard when efforts are made to
deal in a just and comprehensive manner with the tariff laws, are responsible for the sentiment largely privileged that the general government iB
the.fountain of individual and private
aid, and that it should on tho slightest possible pretext of promoting general good and apply public funds to
tho benefit of localities and individuals.
Ho urges nn amendment of laws relating to p.O$Kb lands, property, and the
necessity of Ihe erection of one or more
prisons for United Statea convicts and
revisions of the prison laws. Ho
quotes patriolic soiitnneuh from President Jackson's message.- The president deplores the fact that the government persists in exacting irum the
substance of the people millions which
jjiuipplied and usoloss Ho dormant in
its treasuiy under the samo laws. He
says, tho government permits many
millions inure tn he lidded to tho cost
of tho living of our people and tu bo
taken from consumers which unreasonably swell the profits of a small but
powerful minority. Tho message
goes on to say that sinco the last annual message foreign relations has
been strengthened and improved by
tho pertotmauco of internal good
offices. Those international
questions still awaiting settlement nro
all reasonably within the domain of
amicable negotiation, and no existing
dispute between the U. S. and any
foreign power not susceptible of satisfactory adjustment by frank diplomatic treatment. The questions between Great Britain and the I". S. relating to rights of American fishermen
under treaty with Canada and New
Foundland, 1 regret to say, nro
not yet satisfactorily adjusted.
Since March 3rd, 1887, no [ense has
been reported to the department of
itate wherein complaint has boen
made of unfriendly or unlawful treatment of American fishing vessels on
the part of tho Canadian authorities in
whioh reparation wai not promptly and
satisfactorily obtained by the U. S.
consul general at Halifax. Having
essayed in tho discharge of my duty to
procure by negotiation the settlement
of a long standing dispute and to remove n constant menace to tho good
relations of tho two countries and continuing to be of the opinion that the
treaty of February last did supply a
satisfactory, practical mid finnl adjustment upon a basis honorable nnd just
to both parlies of tho difficult aud
vexed question, and having subsequently nnd unavailing!)* recommended
other lcgii-laturu to congress which I
hopsd would suffice to moet tho exigency created by the rejection of the
treaty. I now again invoke tho earliest and immodi'le attention of congress
to tho condition of this important
question nn it now stands before them
and the country.

COMl'ACING WITH CANADA.
London, Dee. 1.—Lord Saliibm/,
speaking at Glasgow of the treatment
of political prisoners in Ireland, uid
that the government's action confirmed
the general practice ot nunkind. - He
added thit "Uve yean too then w*l a
half-breed in Canada called Kiel who
rebelled and attempted to spreid desolation and misery in that fruitful,
smiling land. It wai hit seoond offence and was he treated according to
his maudlin, effeminate doctrine 1 So:
on the contrary, tho Canadian govern
ment, representing the people if erer
a government did, simply hinged hiin.
That accorded to the rule in modem
socioties, and accorded to the notion of
the Imperial government in Ireland.'1
Speaking at Birmingham, he hoped
that negotiations would lie renewed
which would lead to * mcceniul eon-
cluaion of the fisheries dispute. He
knew the great desire of the Canadian
people to live ou' neighborly term*
with tbo peoplo of the United State.,
and hoped that a similar feeling ot
amity prevailed in the State*. He
urped mutual combination with the
colonics for Imperial defence. No
fiscal arrangement oould .be forced
upon the colonies. Regarding Inland
he contended that it would bo dangerous to grant the Irish mon th*n provincial chambers. The experience of
Quebec showed that if a province wai
made too strong, it could squeeze
money out of the eentnl treaiury beyond what was juit generally. Ha
hopod that the seloction of Sir Hen./
Norman, ono of the ablett terv*nr* of
tho crown, as the governor of Queensland would settle the diipute. He
had reason to know that Canad* had
not followed the exunpl* of other
coloniet in urging the coloniil office to
accede to the demand lor a colonial
voice in the selection of governon.
On the contrary the Canadian official
opinion, he believed, inclined to th*
Imperial view, that if the governor I*
to act aa an arbitrator between parti**,
he muit not owe hii poiition to colonial
fictions.

Mr. McLecse's loss has beon the
provincial government's gain. Ho
resigned his position as a member of
the local legislature to contest Cariboo for tho commons, and lost. Mr.
McLeesc, as is well-known, was a
loyal oppositionist in the local house,
always to bo depended on. Tho
election which tcok place, on Pho
26th ult, to till the vuuausy consequent on Mr. McLeese's resignation
resulted in the return of Mr. I. B.
Nason, a government supporter, by
a large majority over his opponent,
Mr. A. Barlow, also o government
supporter, although leaning to independence. Out of the 27 members
of the local houso, as at present
constituted, the opposition cannot
count on moro than six. Such a
preponderance of power on tbe sido
of the government is not always
oonducive to the healthiest condition
of the body politic. On the other
hand, it prevents obstruction, and
accelerates legislation, and, as governments go, we believe that the
present provincial administration is
the best tlio province has had, and,
from present appearances, the best
that is likely to be bad.
The royal city has good reason to
exclaim, "Save mo from my friends!"
Indications are not wanting to war
rant us in saying that the worst
enemies of Westminstor could not
have devised or executed a more
venomous thrust at the best interests of the oity than has been done
by a few of our own citizens in ihe
matter of the injunction the olher
day. Even if the injunction does
not stand, injury has already b in
done to the city's credit and general
standing, and every day the injunction remains on our outlook is
becoming blacker. If reverses to
the Southern Railway affected that
enterprise alone, the case would not
be so serious. Bat other interests,
even mote important, are now in
the balances. Capital, as overy
ono knows, is very coy, and a very
slight panic serves to divert it from
intended investments. Causes are
now operating as a result of the ill-
junction which set dead against the
we'fare of tho city, and if the in-
junction itself is sustained an increased loss of confidence and slag-
nation is threatened which cannot
but soiiously depirciato tho value of
property ia the city. Wiiy a few
men should I ike upon themselves
such a tremendous responsibility—
and these men our own cilizens too
—when ninr-tenths of the ratepayers wish to see the railway proceed
without any hindrance, it is difficult
to imagine. Whatever the motive,
howover, the results are proving
serious, and may prove disastrous.
Washington Territory fully expects, and will make a united and
determined effort, to be admitted into full statehood ere another, year
rolls round. Several of her sister
territories expeet the same promotion. And Alaska, which hitherto
has had a sort of provisional gov-
ment, will likely be' raised to the
status of a territory. An American
exchange puts it this way: "Not
the least important of 'the duties
which will confront the Republican
party on its return to power will be
that of providing n suitable government for Alaska. The people of
that territory have n right to tho
protection of the laws aud they
should receive from the government
the attention to which they are entitled, 'ihe mule-shift government
which was bestowed upon Aluka
about llvo years ago, poor as it was,
was acceptable to the people of the
territory, because it was better than
the utter nbsenco of government
which had before prevailed. It was
inadequate for tho wants of the territory then und it is more inadequate
now, ihe population and wealth of
the territory have increased at*
npid pace, and the interests now at
stoke are suoS that the national government can no longer lcok upon
Aluka as a possession of to little
importance as to require no attention whatevei. Nothing loss than
a full territorial government ihould
•atilfy the p ople of Aluka. Tbey
an entitled to it a* etearly as t* e
people of Washington, Montana and
Dakota ere entitled to slate government, and they should insist upon bating it, Alaska has passed
the period in whioh even a make-
ihift government is luSeient, and it
will be the grateful duty of the Republican party to provide it with a
government luBioient for the requirements of its peoplo."
Tho Lancet, an American medical
journal, discusses a rather startling,
because little thought of, phase of
contagious diseases, vi**,) the danger
which exists of infeotion being conveyed by domestic animals, such as
dogs and oats, and also of analogous
diseases lieing contracted from these
household pets, whioh an always
handled more or less by memben of
tho family, a praotice not unattended with danger.   It is reported from
Chicago, says the lancet, that a by
no means incoilsiderablo local outbreak of scarlatina has been
brought about by a oat, which acted
as the means of carrying the infection. It has long been known that
almost anything which can servo as
a vehiole for carrying the desquamating epithelium of soarlatina
patients may aot as an intermediary
between sick and healthy; and although recent study of the specific
fevers tend to show that the period
in which these diseases are most
likely to be communicated is tho
acute stage rathor than.that of convalescence, it must be admitted that
somo of these diseases can be conveyed by suoh methods as the reception and subsequent discharge of
infectious material from the coat of
a cat nursed by patients. But that
anything like an outbreak of scarlatina should be directly brought about
by such a causo is oontrary to experience, which goes to show tbat
this diseaso is not often communicated from one person to another
through the agency of a third party
who is free from the disease; and it
is far moro probable that nny extension of scarlatina in the case referred to was due to infection contracted directly from tho first porson
to whom tho disease was conveyed.
But our main object in referring to
the incident is to draw attention to
the faet that the domestic animals
do constitute a distinct clanger to
man, in so far as some of the specific
infectious fevore are concerned. As
yet we know nothing about any disease in the eat which can lead to
scarlatina in the human subject. But
it is probably highly different as regards diphtheria, for a number of instances have been plaeed on record
in which, while diphtheria has been
prevalent in the human subject, a
similar if not the same disease has
been ascertained to exist among
cats, and it is certain that in some
prevalences there has been close association between the human sick
und the affected animals. We are
at present only just on the borderland of a vvido subject—namely, that
of tho relationship of diseases of the
lower animals to diseases in man; and
we may possibly learn hereafter that,
apart from the origin of infective
discuses in the lower animals, the
latter may serve as media for communicating infections to an extent
as yet not understood. Certain it
is that the manner in whioh dogs,
cats, and other doinestie animals are
at times fondled by thoso to whom
they belong, and to whom they become attached, is not free from risk.

DEAR Sirs:—I bought one of your Maxwell Binders last
July, and it has given me the best of satisfaction in every respect,
My grain and straw was very heavy, and a good deal of it was
badly lodged, and I thought it could not be cut by machine, but
thanks to the Maxwell machine, it picked it up and cut it like a
charm. I have visited many of the surrounding farms but have
yet failed to sec any grain cut so clean as mine. I feel proud of
the machine and would strongly recommend the Maxwell above
all others. Yours faithfully,

SCALPED AND STILL ALIVE,
Terrible Torture Inflicted Upon a Fortune
Bnnter by Ute Indians.
As ft reporter was passing through the
stock yards at Weit Albany recently his
attention was drawn to a person attached to
one of the cattle trains, bound through to
the East, by an appearance of distortion
about the upper portion of the man's face
ond by a livid streak at the top of his forehead which, as plainly seen under his Ul*
fitting derby, suggested a freshly, healed
■oar.        .*
Tho man told one of the most remarkable
stories that was ever poured into the ears of
a human being1, and which seemed in many
particulars as Improbable as anything told in
"She,'' through the marvelous imagination
of Mr, Haggard.
The man's story was as follows: Five
years ago a youth of 18, living in one of the
villages of Central Massachusetts, became Infected with the pernicious contagion of
ycllowcolored literature and Induced one of
his companions to run away from home with
him and seek a life of adventure in the Wild
West. Singularly enough and unlike most
of its kino, the scheme fared so well that
the two lads, the latter one year younger
than his evil adviser, succeeded in getting aa
far as Denver, staying there several months
and earning money enough at odd jobs to
secure an outfit and join a search expedition,
which was being fitted out to locate a fabulously rich deposit of gold, rumored to have
been discovered by a venturesome miner in
the unexplored region wes", of the Sierra
Mndra mountains of New Mexico, The
singular fortune of the young men still attended them, and with the smal part of the
party who escaped the dangers by the way,
. they found themselves after six weeks of
la -iirious travel in tho very heart of tho
wild and almost inaccessible region where
their cupidity had been guided by somewhat
viiKiie directions. Then, as If by some strange
fatality, luck deserted the party. One who
wandered some distance from eamp never
found his way back, and was supposed to
have fallen a prey, to the feroeity of wild
la-asi, which apparently had formed a plan
o( lie-Iugiuj* the party.
Aimiitur wus killed by tho fall of an
en "in io ns bowlder while he was exploring
for the coveted mine. Tbe elder of the two
young men, nnd the leader, was among the
numbur who met with violent deaths. After
six weeks of patient and fruitless search four
of the party were all that remained, and
theso decided to fight their way oaok
through the innumerable dangers and hardships to civilisation. They did not set out
by the route they came, but attempted to
muke their way through a pass which seemed
to promise an easier outlet.
When crossing n forbidding ravine, a fallen
tree which tliey hud utilized as a bridge gave
way and precipitated three of the party Into
Its depths. The youngest being the least
also in weight had crossed first and the
support of Hits log bridge being apparently
assured, the ot herd had ventured out together
to their death. Oppressed by the ovor*
powering sense of loneliness, aud his help*
less conditfon, it was by an almost incredible
exercise of fortitude and endurance that the
survivor m.-initgeil to roach the cauyon of tho
Bio Grande river, living on such game as he
managed to thn th and steadily coniuming
his small stock 01 ammunition. One day he
fairly tumbled into a turquoise find of the
most exiravn--ant value. He filled his pockets
with the gems in the rough, and made a bag
out of skins to hold all ho could carry.
How lie managed to get across the Bio
Grande; which is not navigable, and which
is Honked by mountains from 6,000 to 12,000
feot In height, the loftier peaks above tho
suow lino, lie cannot remember. When he
first camo to consciousness of bis where.
abouts, he was in tho northern part of the
territory, about forty miles below San Luis,
Colorado, nnd in the very dutches of a party
of hostile lies who had eut off'every chance'
of escnpc, nnd thnt probably after following
tils insane wanderings for some time. The
instinct of self-preservation in the face of
danger for a familiar: human foe doubtless
brought buck his tottering reason* A desperate struggle did not prevent his capture
ulive, and he was reserved for the most
elaborate tortures, which culminated with
the devilish work of tbe scalping knife.
Left apparently dead and lor a prey to the
carrion beasts and birds, he somehow re*
viveil, made his way to-San Luis, und there,
after a hard light for life, pulled through
without a single cent, turquoise or possession
of any sort. After varied experiences in
securing money enough to return home he
finally got an opportunity to reach Chicago
ond como Kast with a consignment of live
stock. He will endeavor to prove his
Identity to his friends and take up again the
humble sphere he left as n boy. He would
not tell the mum- of his native placo, but it
was apparently near i'U'.-.fiekl. His initials
are D. 11. tf. The middle letter standing for
Barclay, whleh he says is his mother' mime.
His skull is ns Ure as a billiard ball ahd tbe
scalp has certainly been removed, thus enabling him to claim tho undesirable prominence of being oue of tbo very few who have
survived the operation of scalping,
A New Kind of Toast*  ^
One morning recently one of the~new
Senate Committee clerks, a brand-new importation from n New England State, seated
himself at a table in the Senate restaurant
and ordered some tea and toast, ond his order
waa promptly filled. As soon as his ex*
pectont gaze beheld the toast he declared
that It was not of the quality he desired;
that he wanted "toast with holes in it"
Being in doubt what was wanted, tho waiter
reported the matter to the proprietor, Mr.
Page, who, anxious toi please everybody.
ordered the cook to prepare another plate of
toast Another order of nice, crisp, buttered
toast wai soon placed before the young
clerk.
Then his indignation became very apparent. He iiied the plate of toast and went
with U In person to the proprietor and complained bitterly of his service, and declared
tbat he had twice ordered "toast with holes
in it," and the waiter had brought common
' brciuMonst both times. When asked to explain what ho meant by "toast with holes in
it," he said. "Like that whioh Mr. ■
bad for breakfast yesterday,"  The waiter
remembered that Mr. > had been served
with waffles on that occasion, and thereupon, without further unnecessary delay,
the young man got hia "toast with hole's
in it.*' '        ■    .

Fishes aro not very common In deep water,
and until lately, it was thought there were
none, chiefly because of the Immense pressure being one ton per square inch for every
1000 fathoms. As sunlight fails about 200
fathoms down, vegetable life also ceases, and
as a consequence deep sea fishes are carnivorous. The most voracious often eat their
own offspring, whilo others are nourished by
animnlculie, which like a constant rain,
settle down from tho higher waters. Some
are blind, some have ordinary eyes, others
have phosphorescent protuberances to furnish them with light BlrC. Wyville Thomp,

Thanksgiving, Then and Now.
, Many of. the States formerly regarded
Kew England's Thanksgiving with feelings
akin to those which move the stiff Highlander to sniff at "thftlittlo government
Sunday, that they call the Fast."
But time and tne appropriateness of the
custom hove worked the day into general
observance, so that now in almost all the
States, the day ia not only observed, but
the preceding week bristles with preparations to honor the Nation's Harvest Home.
"Thanksgiving" originated in the pious:
sentiment tlmt to the Lord of the Harvest
were due tlie publio thanks of the harvest-
era. The Pilgrims of Plymouth began it.
Prompted by their sympathy with the
Jewish "Feast of Harvest," and by the fitness of things, they set apart a day on
which to rejoice together, "before the
Lord," for the yield of "twenty acres of
Indian corn" and "six acres of barley and
pease,"
In the spring of 1021, "when the leaves
of the white auk were as big as the ear of a
mouse"—that being the Indian season for
planting-tlioy "set" thi corn and Bowed
the barley and peas.
"Sqnnnto," the friendly Indian who had
beon kidnapped by lawless Englishmen,
showed them "how to sot, fish-dress and
tend" the corn.
So thoroughly did they manure tho
ground with herrings, that their old chronicler writes: "God be praised, we had a
good increase of Indian corn, and our
barley indifferent good; but our pease not
worth gathering, for wo feared they wore
too late sown."
It was one year after the Pilgrims had
sighted from the deck of the Mayflower the
sands of Cape Cod. - "Our harvest being
gotten hi," writes the chronicler,' "the
Governor [Bradford] sent four men on
fowling, tlmt so we might after a special
manner, rejoice together after we had
gathered the fruit ofourlabors.'i.
Thus began New England-** Thanksgiving
—a Harvest Home, celebrated when seven
log huts housed its founders;
Nine yearl utter, the .Puritans of the
Massachusetts Colony observed their first
Thanksgiving. It commemorated the ar*"
rival of the provision ship which saved the
people from starvation.
Gov. Wintlirop, seeing that the supplyof
food was likely to run short, hud sent the
snip Lyon to England for a load of pro*
visions, Storms and contrary winds detained the ship so long that the people or
Boston were forced to llvo on clams* muscles, ground nuts and acorns.
Thoy became discontented and murmured. A day of Fasting nud Prayer was appointed. Wintlirop had put his last batch
of bread in the oven, and was distributing
his Inst handful of meal to a poor man.
Suddenly somo one saw a ship at the
mouth of the harbor. The half-starved
people flocked to the beach. The good
ship Lyon dropped her anchor, and her
cargo of provisions was distributed according to each man's necessities. The day.of
Fasting was changed Into a day of Thanks*
giving.
The festival met the social wants of our
pious, but precise, 000681018. They hnd
but little time for merry-making, and thev
rejected Christmas because to them it was
associated with superstitious notions and
unseemly practices. But some festival wot*
needed to interrupt the monotonous toll ol
the yenr and give expression to their social
end pious feelings. »
Thanksgiving struck its roots deeply In
Uew England's soil, because It symbolized
both the God ward and the mauwurd side of
the people's life. It expressed thankfulness to the Bountiful Giver; it extended
hospitality nnd charity to man.
Associated with the ingathering of hsrv*
etsand families, it became the climax-of
Kew England's social life; the crista of its
feasting; its day of "holy convocation.".
Now, as when first set apart from the days
of tbe year, it is both a domestic and it
religious festival. It is the day that brings
back children and children's, children to
the old home. Its point of attraction is tho
family, that vital unit and subtle nexus,
whose spiritual gravitation moulds a tear,
preserves tho man and guides a nation.
Thanksgiving compacts together these
old homos, "new Jerusaletns" are tbey,
scattered throughout the land. Beneath
the family roof-tree pleasant memories are
revived and old vows renewed. Children's
children become sensitive to the family idea
and clow with the homo-Sentiment There I
the tired heart rests, tbe disconsolate ore
exhilarated, and the past, with Its sacred
moulding associations, becomes the present,
Thousands will go out from thia Harvest
Home with hearts pulsating to a mother's
touch, determined (hut their life shall grow
Into a harvest of noble deeds and holv
charities. The Jewish Feast of Harvest wiiV
n time of dedication. All through the land
the people, swayed by the generous gifts of
the earth, dedicated the harvest with
thanksgiving, and themselves with prayer
nnd holy vows, to Him who openeth His
hand and fiUeth all with good.
> Melancholy Complalnen*
Sometimes the least thankful • and the
most complaining are the people whose
lives are crowded with "good tlpgs;"' No
aches, no sleepless hours; uo hunger thai
may not be satisfied, no eare of deformed or
Idiotic children, no solicitude about money,
no heavy burdens—no really heavy burdens—no new-made grave yonder in the
cemetery to swallow up the possible joy of
every day f well-to-do, plenty to do. Why
should they not be full of thanksgiving 7
But they are not" 'They see everything
through blue glasses. Green grass—blue;
fair lilies and royal roses—blue; blue sky-
blue-black; faces of best friends—blue.
The weather Is bad even when vou think it
tolerably good weather. It will storm be*
fore night—even though the sun comes up
unveiled over the hills and looks out on a
cloudless sky. Theeook might have done
better—when every body elao hits full proof
that she has done her best Poor sermon-
tlmt every body liked. So it goes in little
matters and in great, In-doors and out, nl
home and abroad. "What's the use of
Thanksgiving days? Who's got nny thing
to be thankful for—that Is, if lie has sense
enough to see how bad every thing Is?
Thanksgiving days tend te dissipation.
Men overeat on such days. Children, Indulged too much at these times, are spoiled;
. and they turn liberty into license. Preachers
use the occasion for preaching political
sermons and stirring up a contentious spirit
In the church, Laboring men get a taste of
rest end-return reluctantly to their work, or
they get drunk and waste their money,"
Hnve you never heard such melancholy

in the city to-day endeavoring to form
a company to bore for minerals, water,
natural gas, coal or anything of value
likely to be como across in the boring.
Mr. Rand has a boring machine of the
latest make and is read-/ to commence
work the moment sufficient capital is
subscribed to enable him to do so. The
proposed site on which tho boring will
be commenced is at the top of the hill
directly in rear of the city. The many
valuable discoveries made with the aid
of the boring machine ought to bo a
sufficient inducement to enterprising
men to engage in tho scheme.
North Arm load..
The work on the cuustruction uf the
new North Arm road, in spite of the
rainy weather, is progressing tolerably
well. Mr. Green, in chnr-*-*, expects
that the C. P. R. portion of the road
will bo completed by about ChrUtmaB
day, if circumstances are favorable. It
is understood that the contract for the
government portion of tho road has
been let, although the work is not yet
under way. About one mile of the
right of way of the government's portion still requires cleuring and burning.
There is very little doubt Lut that tho
road will be ready for the uses for
for which it is being built by spring.-—

Deer From (be Norlb*
Three canoe loads of deer arrived
yesterday from tho Sen Shells reserve
200 miles up the coaat. Tho deor
numbered 75 in all and would average
125 lbs. each. The Sea Shell Indians
who navigated tho canoes report that
they made the trip down in two days,
being favored with a nor'west gale
from start to finish, Tho deer wore
sold to W. H, Vianen and brought a
fair price considering the large stock
at present on the market. The Indians say that deer have never been
more numerous than they are this year
and it is no trouble to kill as many aa
one might wish to. Sixteen deer belonging to ono man were killed by him
in two days—an evidence that  they
are not scarce.

Drifting nets shall not be so used as to
obstruct more than one-third of any
river. No fishing for salmon between
6 o'olock on Saturday morning and
Monday is permitted. All boats are
to be registered under penalty of for-
eiture. The minister of fisheries
shall determino tho number of boats,
and the seines or nets to be used in

Alderman- Joseph Humphries, of
Vancouver, died yesterdry morning at
4 o'clock after a short illness. Aid.
Humphries was one of the early settlers in British Columbia, having arrived in tho province in 1862. For
some years he mined in Cariboo, and
when the Cassiar discoveries were
made he was one of the fint to shoulder his pack and seek a fortunoin that
new Eldorado, For a number of
years Mr. Humphries lived in New
Westminster, whero he was greatly
respected, being a man of strict integrity and honor. He moved to Vancouver about the time the first laud
excitement broke out in that cily and
resided there until his death. He
was elected as a member of the first
city counoil after the charter was
granted and held his scat ever since.
His actions in civio affairs were always
marked by strict honesty, and anything in the shape of corruption cliques
he strongly opposed and never hesitated to expose. He was a member
of the Masonio fraternity. HU death
waa the subject of many comments today and on all aides universal regret
wu expressed at his sudden demise.
Pakmelke's Pills possess the power

of this medicine to cleanse aud purify,

D. Carswell, Carswell P.O., Ont., writes:
"I have tried Parmelee's Pills and find
them an excellent medicine, and one that
will seU well."

District Court.
Before T. C. Atkinson, 1'. M.
The oase'of A, C. Cooper, on remand,
charged with attempt to murdor, came
up for a hearing this morning.
On application uf Mr. Moresby the
information was amended by striking
out the word Quinton.
J. H. Bosustow, sworn, said:—I live
within four miles of Brownsville; I am
slightly acquainted with tho prisoner;
between tho hours of 7 nnd 8 Sunday
evening, the 25th Nov., Quinton, my
youngest son Stephen and myself were
eating supper in our cabin when Cooper
unexpectedly knocked at the door; I
said "Come in"; he entered with a
rifle and asked me if my name was
John H. Bosustow; I Baid yes; he said
"my wife has beon annoyed" and bo*
fore I could say anything lie etruok a
blow across iny head with the butt end
of the rifle; it staggered mo and I foil
back on a bench; he then attacked
Quinton dealing him two violent blows
with the muzzle of tho same riflo; Quinton clutched the rifle with his hands,
when Cooper drew a revolver and
threatened to shoot Quinton and caught
him by the leg and drapged him out of
the door; when outside he gave him a
severe poke in the side with the muzzle
of the rifle; Mrs. Cooper then interfered and asked him to desist; that is
all I remember.
To Mr. Moresby:—Mrs. Cooper
came over once; I never gave her authority to take my daughter away; I
had an agreement Borne three months
ago with Coopor to take a portion of
his land on certain conditions; some
timo afterward we had a misunderstanding and I threw up the job; I
came to town next morning; I saw
Coopor coming around the corner of
the hous-t, when I was in tho bushes,
with the revolver in his hand and
swearing that ho would shoot me if he
found me; it was a dark night; I could
see by the light of a lantern; my little
girl told mo ho had a revolver; 1 was
not drunk on tho night of the occurrence.
Oross-examinod by Mr. Jenna:—I
came to this provinco from London,
Eng.; I camo to better the prospects
of my children; I have testimonials
with me; Hived first at the Pitt River
farm; I was not accused of burning
tho building on the said farm; I was
carrying on dairy work; I lost considerable property by the fire, and was
compelled on that account to relinquish
the farm and then I came to Sapperton; I had charge of the buslneu In
the Cleveland Hotel before I made
the arrangements with Cooper; I remained about three weeks on the farm
and during that time I was good friends
with Cooper; 1 worked on the ground
that waa pointed out to me by an old
settler as being Cooper's land; I remarked to Mrs. Cooper that she was
occupying a portion of Usher's land;
Cooper entered my house on the even-
in question a little in advance of bis
wife; he charged mo with annoying
his wife.
Dr. Bentley gave evidence as to the
wounds found en Bosustow and Quinton when examined by him.
Arthur Quinton gave hii evidence,
which substantially corroborated Boa-
ustow's. Tho case is proceeding u we

Editor Columbian.—Four weeks ago
D. L. Moody was here addressing the
largest audiences, perhaps, ever assembled in Westminster and winning all
hearts by his simple presentation of the
gospel. Hundreds professed to have
been specially helped and blessed by his
ministry, In return he would accept of
nothing from na except the amount of
his hotel bill, paying his own travelling
expenses to and from the oity. This he
was able to do because backed by wealthy men who Bee all his personal expenses
paid. It is well known, however, that
Mr. Moody Is carrying on largo training
schools for Christian workers, at his
home In Northfietd, Mass., these schools
being sustained by voluntary contributions. It has been suggested t) at a trifle
from each of the hundreds who were ao
much helped by his preaching would form
a very nice little memento of his visit to
us, and cheer tho heart of a man who Is
always ready to help others. Let all who
approve of this way of showing our
gratitude hand in their contributions
during this week to Mr. D. 8. Curtis,
trees, of the Moody committee, or to any
of the city pastors and forward to Mr.
Moody In Portland. 50 cents by 200 people— ?100. One Who Was Helped

Editob Columbian.—With your permission, I would reply to Wm, Murray's
lettor of the 15th Novembor, with reference to work done on Scott Road
Murray's letter is a falsehood, excepting
one item which says: "Had Gray expended the money, there would have
been no complaint, I quite agree with
him in this, aa I would have cat all the
brash, put one foot of gravel on whero
tho mud was applied, and a sufficient
depth of gravel wherever required, the
whole length of tho road, for the $400,
Headers of The Columbian aro aware
of Mr. Sprott, in connection with a
hotel-keeper near Langley, expending
$400 on Scott's rood, and all the benefit
to the rood bed oould bo done easily for
$10: 30 feet of corduroy, 4 culverts
slightly repaired, 1 piece of corduroy tn
a bridge, with a few ferns trimmed off
the Bides of the road—these few items
coat $400. Why did the charge d'affaires
for the district in road matters apply to
a retailer of whiskey to repair roads,
when practical men wero at hand? The
Whiskey man would bo sure to employ
men who would pass the most of their
earnings over his bar—''blow it in."
This work is a disgrace and hu left tho
wagon track worse than before interfered with. Thla work shows the error
of bringing men 18 or 20 miles to do
work on roads in which they are not
interested any further than to draw
their pay. Men who live on the roads
and travel them would seo that the
work was do.o. properly, on their own
account, as well as for the benefit of the
travelling public. I have never before
known a man holding a liquor license to
have the expending of publio* funds.
When a hotel man is approached there is
something going on. Perhaps he is an
influential man, as all whiskey men are
said to bo, and has done services last
election, or may keep the boys solid for a
future election. As Murray only appeared on the road once or twice a week,
if lie was not behind his own bar the
balance of the time, where was he, while
the men were trimming fern on the roadsides, wbloh was no benefit to the road
whatever, Tho wagon track should
have been the first consideration, and
then, if there was any money to be
thrown away, do that later. But cutting fern was easy and pleasant work
and no boss to hurry. This accounts
for ub having to slush through mud
and water to the hubs at the present
time. If the government does their
duty they will dismiss Mr. Sprott at
once, tio him loose, as he hu proved
himself unworthy to feed at the publio
crib. Now, I understand thero is 860
moro to be fooled away on the road.
I would suggest that Mr. Sprott,
if allowed to remain in office long
enough, send this money up to Langley
and let Murray "set 'em up for the
boys" during the holidays. It might
be the best means of keeping them
solid until tholr services are required,
as the money would have no beneficial
effect to the rood if spent under the
present management. Mr. Murray
brings certain charges against the undersigned for not doing work according
to agreement. That is false. There is
no truth in it. He would have people to
believe he took the logs off the road
which have accumulated since repaired
by me; but by passing over the road they
will be fouud untouched, and, as for
cleaning out road ditch to drain my own
farm, that was done at my own expense.
It would bo of groat advantage to the
merchants of Westminster to have this
road kept in good repair, as it is tho entry to the city from Mud Bay and also
from Boundary Bay. Farmers can bring
no produce over it, Thoy have to seek
a market elsewhere. The government
has made a good corduroy road from the
end of Scott's road to Ladner's Landing,
which is equal to a plank road, aud yet
Scott's road is impassible. Now, thla
state of things is discriminating against
Westminster. Produce ia brought to
Ladners that would come to the city.
And where produce is sold supplies are
bought. If Westminster don't see to
the leading roads being kept in order,
they will feel the effect in business.
