The old man did not like him as a

Scooter, a St. Louis lad, . who was
kidnapped three years ago, was
restored to hts parents thia Week,
having been found (through the aid
of a newspaper picture of hiin) on a
farm near Cairo, III. After being
abducted, so the boy states, he was
bound out to a brickmaker in an out-
of-tho-way spot, reached after a fast
ride of threo days. He afterward
ran away nnd engaged with a farmer,
who saw the cut in a St. Louis
paper, and thinking it resembled
his little employe, looked'into the
matter,
The other day, Mr. Ilarrison,,
presidentelect of the United States,
went to a friend's farm to look at a
pair of horses he thought of purchasing. One of the big American
papers makes nearly a column of
this, giving minute detuils of the
trip—of tne time tho party spent at
lunch, and so forth, and capping the
climax of its absurdity by gravely
assuringits readers that the members
of the party were "dumb as oysters"
when questioned as to whether Mr.
Harrison, bad closed the bargain or
not I Brother Jonathan had better
kill off a few of his own fools before
he sneers any more at John Bull1

The Greek town of Castri Is to he
bought out in order that enthusiastic explorers may excavate the site
of the ancient temple of Apollo at
Delphi. To buy out the town will
cost $75,000, and this sum, together
with a similar one for the American
College at Athens, Professor Norton,
of Harvard, is now trying' to raise
in the United States. At d meeting the other evening in Now York
tho professor, on learning -that two
gontlemen were willing to start the
aubscription list with a thousand
dollars oach, regretted that the Unt
donation was not to bo twenty,
thousand. The rage for digging up
ancient remains: fa the east has
hardly reached that stage of intensity
in the classic city of  New  York.
Thore has been much talk, says
an exchange, of the infamies alleged
to be commonly practised in "dens"
in the Wisconsin woods. Girls aro
said to be retained against their will
in these places, maintained for rough
and vicious men whose employment
takes them away from towns into
the forest regions of the state. There
have been heartrending stories of
helpless girls trying to offbet an
escape and being traced by blood
hounds and brought back. Denials
and reiterations of these atrocities
have followed quick upon each other
during the past year, and now the
Wisconsin legislature has done the
best thing it could have done in the
matter. It lias ordered an investigation whioh will settle definitely
the truth or falsity of the. charges.
Governor Foraker, of Ohio, having
undertaken to make excuses for tlio
"White Gaps," saying, inter tdia,
that "many of them are respootahle
citizens," the Inter-Oceim't bystunder
goes for him in this sensible style :
Htho "Whito Caps" aro "rcspoo-
tablo aud responsible citizens" they
know oxaotly what they wero doing
and should bo hold responsible all
the more rigidly, It is the respectable elements of such a conspiracy
that mako it dangerous. It was the
ministers, lawyers, doctors, and
respectable planters of the south
who made the Kuklux Klana thin-j
of unexampled terror. And it was
tho folly of compromising with them,
promising them immunity, which
enabled them to gather power sufficient to defy tho governments of
tho various states and finally overthrow and destroy them.- It ia "respectable" criminals who most
deserve punishment, and whoso
punishment is most valuable to a
community. The weak, ignorant,
and depraved—the habitual criminal
—expects to be punished,, and his
fate awakens littlo attention, tlie
punishment of the "respectable and
responsible" violators of Iho law is
the only assertion of power that
gives dignity and respect to a state.

Vienni, Feb. 1.—Conflicting ru*
mors regarding the oau.e of the Crown
Prince Uudclph's death are set at rest
to-day by an official ststemont iu the
Witner Zeituny that the prince committed suioide with a revolver. The
physicians appointed to enquire into
the cause of death discovered a large
wound in his head which had caused
instant death,
X-U BO--,-, sou-Da.
Viskha, fob. 1.—The Wiener Zti-
tung states this morning: an. autopsy
was performed last night on the remains of the Grown Prince Rudolph
by Dr. Wiederhofer. A wound was
found in the side of the head sufficient
to have killed the prince. The revolver with one ohamber discharged was
found lying on the bed near the dead
man's right hand. It is therefore concluded that Rudolph suicided. The
bones of the skull wero shattered as
though by a bullet, no one, however,
heard the report cf the revolver, asj ,
everyone belonging to the castle were!
outside, preparing for* shooting excursion. It is now stated by those
about the prince that recently he has
been morbid snd nervousand therefore
the statement is made by the Vienna
Press that the prince was undoutedly
temporarily deranged. The prince
had' for some time previous to his
death heen suffering enormous headache, attributed to an injury to the
head received recently in falling from
a horse. The Boudyester correspondence say. Rudolph bad thrice given1
orders to his attache, Herr Von Szo-
gyenyi, to arrange his private papers
as if preparatory to death.
IMPOIlTASr CHANGES.
Dobuk, Feb. 1.—The free-nans'
Journal says Lord Salisbury is treating
with Lord Bsrtington with a view to
inducing him to accept the premier*
ship, Salisbury to retain the office of
secretary for foreign affair., and that
the Right Honorable Wm. Henry
Smith, at present government leader
in the bouse of commons, be raised to
the peerage.
ARRESTED FOR PERJURY.
Loin**.-*-; Feb. l.-Patrick Malloy, a
noted Fenian, was arrested at Liverpool to-day on a charge of perjury in
connection with hi. recent testimony
before the Parnell Commission.
THB   AUSTRIAN SUCCESS-!!..
London, Feb. 1.—There is no basis
for the theories that Ihe succession to
tbe throne of Aautri. would fall to any,
other than tbe rich Duke Carl Ludwig,
eldest brother of the emperor. Tho
Salic law, whioh obtains in Austria,
debsrs the daughter of tho late crown
prinoe, and Carl Ludwig becomes in-
conteetibly his heir apparent. The
emperor could not change the succession if he desired to do so,
smalley'x cadle.
N»w Yobk, Feb, 1.-6. W. Sinnl-
ley cables the Tribune: "Princo Rudolph was well-known in London, and
when here ton years ago hu was admired in the Marlborough House set
as the only man Who could stand more,'
sit up later and keep going longer than
tha Princo of Wales. His relations to
the last with the Prince ol Wale, continued intimate and they became more
so when the English heir apparent
sided with the Auitriin heir apparent
in hie quarrel with the German emperor. If Prince Rudolph's death hss
any political effect it i. likely to be in'
drawing Austria and Germany closer.
PThe Arch Duke Louis, who succeeds,
is little known outside of his own
country,: The' prince was popular in
Austria. His abilities were believed
in and he was thought to possess cultured snd even literary tastes. His
wife, the Princess Stephanie of Belgium, would loug since have divorced
him hut for reasons and influences of
state, whioh made the scandal of an
imperial divorce impoisible. This is
domestic detail, which little, if at all,
diminishes the regret felt or osprussed
all over Europe for the death of the
heir to one uf the greatest and most
difficult of- European thrones.
UNFAVORAD-E  REF0RT.
London, Feb. 1.—The special parliamentary commission appointed to
enquire into the late naval manoeuvres
report tlmt -the shilw, with few exceptions, are unsuitable for modern warfare and the existing fleet would bo
unable to hold the .ca. against the
enemy.

SEAMEN'S STRIKE.
London, Eeb. 1.—The strike of the
Clydo seamen is spreading. Arriving

RATES- SENSATIONAL.
London, Feb. 1.—Tho Pal! Afdtt
Oazelle learns from a private despatch
from Vienna that Rudolph suicided in
accordance with an agreement he made
with a prince of one of tbe highest
familiea in Auitria. The despatch
states that Rudolf seduced tho prince's
sitter. She told her brother of her
disgrace and the latter sought out the
crown prince and gave him tho option
of killing himself or lighting a duel
with bim. Rudolf chose the former
to avoid the opeu disgrace of tho 1st-
tor. The physicians, after viewing the
body, refused lo certify that the prince
died of apoplexy, whereupon an exciting scene occurred. One of the
physicinns informed iho New Ftie
Pr-iof the affair, hoiico the publication for which tho paper is confiscated.
ATTAUK ON IIISMAUCK.
London, Jan. 31.—Sir Robert Morier having waited in vain for permission lo leave his post as ambassador at
St Petersburg in-order to come homo
and explain tho uu'ruthfulness of tho
charges brought against him by
Prince Bismaick, hu grown restless
and has evidently determined lo re*
turn Ihe German attack with the same
kind of weapons thst were used against
him. The is no longer any doubt
about tbe authorship of the Cotempor-
anj Review's artiolc on "The Bismarck-
Ian dynasty." Mr. Stead, the editor
of tho Pali Mall Gazette, wrote the article, but in ull probability its pointed
attack on Prince Bismarck was inspired by Sir Robert Morier, wbo thus is
enabfeil to pay oil'his scoro in patt at
least. Mr. Stond is known to bu a
firm friend of tho ainbutsador and lins
heartily dofended him throughout all
the recent afi'nir.
Tho Pall Mall Gazette, in a leader
to-day on tho. deuth of the Crown
Princo Rudolph, says: "Tho sudden
and mysterious death of Prince Ru*
dolpb has removed from the scone another one of those personalities whoso
existence was inimical to tho execution
of tho plans of Princo Bismarck. In
tho middle ages such a run of fatalities would be ascribed to supernatural
agencies. Prinoe Rudolph did not
love Prince Bismarck, nor did he relish the superior airs affected by the
Kaitor William. It is openly declared
that If Prince Rudolph had ascended
the throne- of Austria, his foreign
policy would have been' as Russian
as that of his father is Herman.
It is asserted that tho crown princo
literally trembled at (be mention uf
Prince Bismarck's name, his dread of
him was so great."
HEATH  OF F1IINCB RUDOLPH.
London, Jan. 31.—Tho rimes, referring to Prinoe Rudolph, says: "The
sterner qualities which the throne required he could not show till tho time
of trial came, but he had intellectual
and social gilts, Thoae who saw him
in London at the Jubilee, when the
Queen conferred upon bim the order
of the Garter, must feel a natural pang
lo hear that he ia cut off in the flower
of his age with such fearful suddenness.'! The Standard BBys: "All that
the World knew of him was in his
favor... The shock will be felt in
Europe far outside the limit of his empire. The shattered hopes of his
parents present a picture that might
touch the stoutest heart."

cannot live lung and quotes the remark of the American minister at Berlin, made live years ago, "tbat he was
surprised that the chancellor was preparing no one to succeed him." Prince
Bismarck, waking suddenly to this
idea, the article says, began to prepare his son, Count Herbert, for this
purpose. Count Herbert Bismarck's
youthful, brawls and quarrels and his
latter intrigues, including some disgraceful occurrences, in one of which
he received a sword cut in the head,
are reviewed. The Bismarckinn contempt for women, accentuated by the
quarrel which concerned a woman and
by another intrigue afterwards, are
represented by the article as the origin
of all that is batiofuUn the character of
young Bismarck. When the Emperor
Frederick " died, Count Herbert is
credited #»m%ayiJig that "we, shall,
have hu more' petticoats in politics
now." The Writer of tho article 'dismisses bs ' monstrous thu insinuation
thut Prince Bismarck meditated thu
death uf tho late emperur when he insisted on the hitler's romoval from
San Eemo ro Berlin, but snys that
Prince Bismarck feared that hia tu>
cundency would bo tiic-naced by thu
Empress Frederick. The chancellor also
said that from the Emperor Frederick's
refusal to discuss state matters with
Ctiunt Herbert, it was usoloss to hope
that the latter would ever be the Emperor Frederick's chancellor. "Who,
then," continues the article, "could
be surprised had Prince Bismarck
wished the cancer to make haste ."
Referring to the dismissal of Minister
Von Puttkamer by the Emperor
Frederick, the article ascerts that
Prince Biimarek could scarcely deoido
whether it wu wisest to resist or to
f ratify the Emperor Frederick's desire.
!ven after advising him to sign the
decree of cUuninat it says that as soon
as the decree was published tho chancellor told the emperor that he hsd
done it too late. The emperor's
diary confirms this statement. The
article asserts that Prince Bismarck
hud a compact with the  present  em*
Keror to oppose the marriage of the
ia-_.<u.__. IF;_.-.„_.:_, i.. ti_.*___._   ii....
Princesi Victoria to Prince Alexander
of Battenburg. The writer alao criticises thu present emperor in a so-ere
manner. It calls him au apt pupil of
a cynical master who allowed no sentiment or moral difficulty to stand in
the way of his treating his mother in a
manner worthy of Bismarck himr-elf
and whoso treatment of tho Princo of
Wales was eminently discourteous.
The article goes freely into the Geff-
ckon-Morier affair but reveals nothing
new.
1'KISCE lUJDOLl'll's DEATH.
Vunra, Jan. 31.—The Fremden-
blatt says that on Tuesday, when the
Crown Prince Rudolph returned from
shooting, ho complained of his headache ahd returned to his room to
write a letter. He awoke on Wednesday before 7 and ordered his breakfast
to be Drought up to him. His valet
on entering the room with the breakfast found the prince dead in bed.
Count Hogas and Prince Philip of Coburg, who were Prinoe Rudolph's
gueaU, rushed to the prince's ohamber
when the valet, told them the prince
wu dead. Count Hogaa, attired in
hia hunting costume, immediately went
with all speed to Vienna and acquainted the Emperor Francis Joseph with
the sad news. The count was closeted
for some time with hia Majesty, who
directly after the interview hastened to
inform the empress, whose grief upon
learning of her son's death was terrible.
Both the emperor and empress then
went to the apartments of Crown
Princess Stephanie and told her of her
husband's death. Princess Stephanie
insisted upon going immediately to
Hierling, where the prinoe lay dead,
and the united efforts of the emperor
and empress were hardly ablo to prevent W. They woro finally successful, however, and the emperor then
remained alone until 3 o'clock in the
afternoon, when ho ordered the body
of'the prince to be brought to Vienna.

Friday Evening. Feb. I. IfWO.
Yesterday wo laid the proposition
of the Uot--iiti-.nl  Water Works Co.
to the city council boforo our read
ers.   Hy comparing these proposals
with those mado by tho same company in May, 1888, ib will be soon
thas this last proposition is by long
odds the most favorable for the city.
Last year  the   Coquitlnm   Water
Works Co. asked that in consideration of tho city being "allowed the
freo use of hydrants for lire  purposes,  sprinkling  tbo   streets  nnd
flushing the sewers," the company
should be given "the proceeds of an
annual rate of one-half of one per
cent, on the value of tho assessment
roll," which being $862,611, would
mean un annual guarantee from the
city  of    something   over   §4,000.
Provision wus ulso mado that the
city might "after thirty years purchase   the works within the city
limits, together with the right of
independent access to the sourco of
supply over the ground covered by
the company's  right of  way, at a
valuation to be determined by arbitration,"     The proposals submitted
to the council on .Monday last ask
for an annual guarantee of $2,000
only, and provide that, after the expiration of ten years the city ahould
have the privilege of acquiring the
works "upon such reasonable terras
as may bo agreed upon by mutual
consent."   An alternative proposal
allows the city to become the controlling shareholder in the company's
stock.       Several   of    the recontly
elected   aldermen    have    declared
themselves,   before   election,   as in
favor  of   the city owning its own
wator works from tho -start.      This
is admirable as a theory, irrespective of oirounistnnoes; but it is to be
hoped   that the  city  council  as a
whole will not allow itself to attach  to mcro theories any   undue
weight when considering the propositions   of   the   Coquitlnm   Water
Works Oo. now before it.    We be-
liovo that these are favorable, the
6rst  particularly, and would urge
upon the council, in the interests of
the city, the advisability of directing their best efforts towards bringing about some arrangement  with
tho Ooquitlam Wator Works Co., on
the linos already proposed.   To refuse to  consider, or to   reject, the
proposals above, without good and
suflicient reasons, would be a foolish
act for tho city, foi the following
considerations: The water supply of
tho Ooquitlam Lake is unequaled,
both as regards quantity, quality,
nnd   the   pressure    obtainable  by
gravitation.   The city is urgently in
need, on sanitary grounds—and this
is a need   that is increasing every
day with its growth—not only of a
pure  and uneontaminatable water
supply, but of a thorough system of
sewerage (the latter being dependent, of course, upon an ample water
supply), as is evidenced by cases of
sickness that exist at present, and
are  continually recurring,   in   our
ihidsfc.    Westminster also requires
better Mre protection, and by means
of  a  gravitation   system of water
works this would  be secured most
effectually, and, ut the same time,
insurance rates would be  lowered
nearly one-half.    Wo  would have
the most convenient possible means
for sprinkling all tho streets, when
this was   required.    To   sum up,
Wesl minster   would   bave   nearly
perfect sanitary conditions,   ample
.   firo protection, low insurance rates,
oonyonionceB for  street and lawn
sprinkling, and   the best of   water
for domestic purposes, all over tho
city, and aa a natural result, largely
enhanced values   in all city property.     And, Instly, by no imaginable scheme that wo  can conceive
of, can all these desiruble ends be
obtained so speedily, satisfactorily,
, and cheaply,   for tho city, as  by
closing with ono or other of, what
appears to us  to be, the   fair  and
reasonable proposals of the Ooquitlam   Water Works Oo., submitted
to the council at   their last meeting.   Wo hope the counoil may see
their way clear to entertaining favorably one or other of  the propo-
. rations mentioned, or else be able
to furnish satisfactory reasons for
not doing so.
The following from the Tacoma
Ledger, is so refreshingly candid aa
to the United States' real status as
a  naval  power I   (save the mark),
that wo republish it, more especially
in view of the increasingly ticklish,
state of affairs in Samoa,   conse-.
quont upon - Germany's declaration
of war against King Mataafa. These
remarks of  tbe Ledger emphasize
very  strikingly what is generally
known about the big ropublic s disgraceful apology for a navy, and
will assist the intelligent reader in
determining in advance, pretty accurately, what the  policy of the
United States must be, even if the
emboldened Germans go so far as to
pluck a feather from the "eagle's"
wing.   "It is useless to disguise the
fact," says  the  Ledger, "that the
controversy   between the  United
States snd  Germany,-  concerning
.the Ssmosn Isles, begins to assume
• T*»7 thwf*^-■■**•*••* •■**•]
arises from the largo pretensions
mode by onr government and the
petty means it possesses of enforcing
respect from foreign nations. For a
quarter of a century, we have transacted national businesa on the
Mongolian theory that ours is the
greatest nation in the world, and
that the whole world is afraid of us.
Ships, cannons, forts and marines
we have considered entirely unnecessary. Big talk was to supply the
place of all usual facilities for maintaining national dignity. Our population, our money, and certain rolls
of ancient parchment called
"treaties," have been our reliance,
The "Monroe doctrine" has been
another paper bulwark. What did
the small but martial power of
Greece care for the gold, the population and the magnificence of the
the Persian empire ? The Greeks
knocked the empire into pieecs.took
possession of the gold, and ruled the
vast population at pleasure. They
cared nothing for old arrangements
and ancient things,' because they
had tho military machinery to enable thom to do as they pleased.
The United States cannot hold its
proper position among the nations
of the earth without complying with
the conditions. We have kept Great
Britain at bay for the reason that
Canada would be defenseless against
the soldiers we could muster and
arm. We have no defense against
other naval powers. A few years
ago we talked big to the little nation of Chili, which we havo always
regarded with contemptuous condescension. Chili was not, frightened,
but defiant. It wns then discovered
that Chili had a war vessel that
could sink the whole American
navy, and destroy every oity on the
Atlantic or Pacific seaboard. As a
natural consequenee we had to pursue a pusilonimous course—in common parlance, "take water." When
there was danger of a war with
Spain, the only war policy it was
ascertained that we could pursue
was that of loading troops on a large
fleet of unarmed transports and have
them run tbe gauntlet of the Spanish iron-dads around Ouba, It will
be claimed that congress is building
a navy "as fast as it oan." That if
tho navy should be built any faster
much money would be stolen. If
wo are such a nation of thieves that
we can't build a navy as soon as we
need it, for fear that most of the
money would be stolen, or if we care
more for our money than we do our
national honor, then we have lost
our position among the nations of
the earth. We cunuot bully Germany or any other strong nation. If
we try it our pride will be promptly
humbled and our vaunted surplus
will be cargoed over to fill the coffers of the German empire. If we
are unwilling to promptly put ourselves iu a position not only for defense, but vigorous offense, then let
us make some country a present of
the Monroe doctrine, and closely
mind our own business and let the
isles of the ocean take care of thera-
■es." The Ledger is to be commended for its candid utterance of
even the foregoing humiliating facts;
for the motive is, no doubt, purely
patriotic, and the surest way to obtain a remedy for a bad state of
things is to point out the dire neces
sity that exists for a cure. It need
hardly be expected that the American nation, knowing its present vul-
nerableness on tho water so well,
will allow itself to be drawn into
actual hostilities with Germany over
Samoan aflairs,if such an eventuality
can possibly be avoided.

Otnu, iu*in h-u, • mii im AMATEUR FARMING.
How to .Propagate  Hcas, Together  with
Some Habits of the Bird,   -
I intend to disoouirBe on tho dolightsof
amatonr farmfng-lbe raising of cabbages
at 9s.H0 a heod-altahough, to tell. tho truth,
I nover cultivated any quite so economically as tl_at,: writes Luke Bharp in tho Detroit
free Prcu. His paper, excellent as It Is,ought
to have an amateur farming column. I
have felt that for some time, and now, as
the bornicst-handed son of tho soil on the
shoot, I throw myself Into tho chasm like
that Roman fellow, armor and all.
My experiences In farming havo been
somewhat different Irom those you read of
In tbo many. exoQlleiit agricultural papers
we have, "Bio wjrreBpouUents of those
journals m_ftjb, "--"-My1 on their farms, I
never did. They show how 10.40 invested
in chickens in the spring amount to $t,-
D0_t.fi0, besides having all tho eggs the family could use, and at theond of the year a
great many surplus fowls. I have gone
over tlit.se statements in detail and figured
tbem up and they were without flaw, but X
never could make tho problem come out
right In practice. Tbe dogate up several,
to begin with. When I killed the dog some
new hind of epidemic that was fond of chickens came along. Then some wero stolen and
tho rest got lircd of me and went
away to a neighbor who could understand
and sympathize with their various moods.
Thoy refused to lay In tho nlco comfortablo
boxes I provided, but preferred to go out to
the hack fields, accumulate a wealth of eggs
and then sit on tbem. Finally the ben
would becomo weary of the sedentary business whon sho found seclusion and inactivity tolling on her health, and would basely
abandon tho oggs, when a Uttle more cloao
attention to the occupation would have resulted In complete and multitudinous success. Their conduct In the niatter of laying
was most Ungenerous, When oggs were
twenty-five -cents a dozen tho hens would
go on strike, when eggs were down to
about eight cents thon they all became industrious. Fowls seem muoh more fond of
gardening than I am. I hate to work* ina
garden; they don't. Nothing delights ai hon
so much as to undertake tho entire supervision and cultivation of a newly-planted
garden. If I could only peg away with half
tbo industry thoy do I would bo oho of the
richest market gardeners in America. Tbey
aro at Hourly ami lato and thoy cultivate
the ground Ih a beautiful way that leaves It
quite ready for planting something else.
The first timo I planted seeds in the garden
they nover camo up, "Too deep," a neighbor told mo. But that was beforo I kept
hens. Whon tho bona got right down to
business tho seeds came right up every
Ume. Hens always have a great crop. I
never succeeded in raising auy crop but
woods. : Canada thistles are my specialty.
My neighbor says he nover knew any1 one
who was so successful in raising Canada
thistles as I am. In fact, my farming has
caused a groatdoalof comment in tbo neighborhood. I am surrounded by old-timo formers who never before saw agriculture
carried on by sotontiiio methods. I go by
tho advice of tho agricultural journals and
hand-books of horticulture, They don't
Thoy believe^lft plantingoertain things In
certain stages of tho moon, I havo ridiculed
tho moon theories a good deal, but as their
crops come up and mine don't, except what
, the hons resurrect of them, I am beginning
to think that perhaps there is something iu
tho moon besides tho man.
But to return to tbe hens. My hens are
a particularly high-toned variety. It Is always best to go ln for the most expensive
kinds (see Handbook of Fowl Culturo, page
9$). Thoro is no money In Iho common
kinds; every body raises then. I got a
dozen of very much warranted Oggs. The
hons that laid those eggs hod taken prises
at three Stato fairs and 1 don't know how
many smaller shows* When you get ex*
pensive eggs you can put a cheap hon on
them and the chickens aro warranted to bo
fust as good as if a ten-dollar hen did the
■Itting. I bought a fifty-cent hen that was
In tho sitting business—so tho man told me.
I never found out just what objection tbat
cheap hen had to those dear oggs, but she
positively refused to sit on them. Probably Bhe thought any thing so expensive
should not bo sat down on, X tried to coax
and even to coerce her, hut she persisted in
walking around on those oggs and protesting at the top of her voice. I assured her
that chickens wore not accumulated in tbat
way, but It was no use. She seemed to
think it was an omelet we wanted, for she
broke several of the eggs. X noticed in
reading the agricultural journals that many
of tho. best farming inventions havo boon
constructed flrst by enterprising amateurs.
I desire, hore to call tho attention of thoso
useful papers to my setting hon attachment.
The eggs were In a nice noBt that rosted in
a wooden box. In tbe bottom of this box I
bored a couplo of two-inch auger holes.
Through those I put the two legs of the fluttering and indignant hen and pulled on the
logs until the hen fitted nice and snug on
the eggs. Then I tied tho legs together underneath the box. It was a groat scheme.
Even if she flew away with the box and ull
sho would still be sitting on the eggi.
Unfortunately my trammer vacation camo
on al tint time and I went away and forgot
all .about tbat hen for two weeks. Sho
stuck to tho deck like Casablanca and her
fate was similar. A former should nover
tako a vocation. A hen is just as contrary
when sho makes up her mind to alt aa when
she makes up her mind not to. Bhe generally re-wlves to go in sitting session about
tho timo when thero isn't a.sitablo egg
within miles of the premises. She is mad
all the time tnd goes around with her wings
scraping on the ground.
It Is said that dousing a sitting hon In
water will cure hor of the mania. It wltlif
you keep her under witer. long enough-
say twenty minutes.
That's all 1 know about hens.
A Help foi Harvard Students.
A new help for student-work Is for a professor to gather out,bt tho wholo library
such books (no mattor how many) as ho
wishes hii classes especially to study.
These are put in an alcove undor his name;
his pupils have access to them all day, and
tako them over night, returning thom noxt
morning. This plan U now, but It grows iu
favor. In 1880 thirty-five teachers thus reserved 8,3IK> books. In 1880 fifty-six teach*
ors reserved 5,840 books. AU books lent
outnumbered in 1880,41,986; in 1880, 00,105.
This rate of incroaso greatly outruns that
of tho number of students. It snooks of an
increasing industry and productiveness.
And tho best thing about the intellectual
lifo horo is that it li hopeful-and not timid
-it looks forward.   .

Inasmuch as I will bave to oat dry stalks
instead of fresh green grass. I'll not do it,

strated the landowner; "your father never
hod any food but thistles, and yot worked
aixtoon hours a day without grumbUUt."
"Alas! that is, true," retorted tho,male,

A child may often bo expected to put his
or hor heed leas littlo foot in it, us the*
phrase goes. For instance, a young-tor
ono day begged au invitation to dinner »t
tho houso of it friend wltli whom ho had
boon playing. At tho tablo his hostess
anxiously inquired: " Charlie, can you eut
your own moat." "Humph!" said tho
youngster, who was sawing away, " cau't
1. I've cut up quite as tough moat as this
at home!" Peoplo who aro destitute of
tact might take wanting f root euch juvenile
molaprops, butsuoh does not often appear
to ho tho caso, judging by the numerous examples to the contrary.
A millionaire railway king has a brother
who is hard of hearing, while ho himself Id
remarkable as having a vory prominent
noao. Onco the, railway king dined nt a
friend's house when he sat bc-lwoon two
ladies, who otalkod to http vory loudly,
rather to his annoyance, but ho said nothing. Finally one of them shouted # com-
monplaco remark, and then said In an ordinary tone to the other:" Did you ovor soo
such a noso tn all your life I" •* Pardon me,
Indies," said the millionaire, "it's my
brother who is deal" - You. can imagine
the horror of the lady: who li_du.«sd in
such personal remarks; tyot she.1 won ho
more awkwardly placed than tho tioro of
tho following: Whon dining nt a certain
coatlo n Mr. T—, after tbo ladies rotirdd,
remarked to a gentleman present that tho
lady wliu sat on his right was the ugliest
woman ho hod overseen. "I am sorry to
hoar," said tlio gentleman, " that you think
that my wifo is so ill-looking." "Oh, no,
sir; I mount tho lady who sat on my loft; I
made a miBtako." " Well, sir, sho is my sister."
Alluding to newspapers, it may be remarked that advertisers and unpractised
writers therein through ambiguity of
words and phrases often commit absurdities that may be touched on as further illustrating, our subject A oountry pupor
onco related how, "during the celebration,
a child was run over wearing a short
dress, which never spoke afterward," In
tbo description of tho doings of a mod dog
it is said that "ho bit a horso on tho log,
which has since died." An account of a
f uucral soy s:' 'The remains were committed
to that bourne from, which no traveler returns attended by bis friends."
It is not surprising that foreigners somo-
times fall to catch all the shades of meaning to our words. A Frenchman translated Shakespeare's line, "Out, brief can*
dlo," by; "Get out, you short candle." And
the expression, "With my swoM' I will
carvo my way to fortune," wus roudered:
"With my sword I will make my fortune
cutting moat."
Advertisers often givo us nmuslpg specimens of composition, of which thi.. In mi ox-
amplo: "Lost by a poor lad tied up iuu
brown papor with a whito string a German
flute with an overcoat on and sovoral other
articles of wearing apparel." • A miller attempted to testify to tho merits of a powder for destroying vermin by saying: "A
fortnlghtago 1 was lull of rats, and now I
don't think, I havo ono." v
Examples moro oftho "bull" gonim also
come under tho title of tliis paper us cases
iu point. For instance, a newspaper was
running n serial story called "The Truth."
One week, so mueh space being devoted to
othor matters, tho editor was unable to
coutlnuo tho story, so mado tho lolknvliij*
uimonncoinont, containing porhnp-i moro
truth than any other Item in tho paper:
" 'Tho Truth' was crowded out of thii* issue
ou account of tho press of moro important
matter."
A bashful gentleman who visited a school
kept by a young lady was asked by tho
teacher to say a few words to tho pupils.
This was his speech: "Scholar.*- 1 hopo
you will always love your school and ioachor
as much ns I do." A tableau of g.j*«.li.f*
pupils and a blushing teaoher attested the
effectiveness of his words.
Tha lecturer put bis foot in it as .thorough*
ly whon he prefaced his discourse upon tho
rhinocoros with: "I,must bog you to -rlvo
mo your undivided attention; indeed, it is
absolutely impossible that you could forma
truo idea of tho hideous animal of which wo
aro about to speak, unless you keep your
oyes fixed on me." A certain preacher,'
discoursing upon Qunyaa. and his works,
caused a titter among nt* hearers by exclaiming: "In theae dip, my hrothern,
we want more Bunyans." Another clovgy-
man, pleading earnestly with bla parishioners for tho construction of aoemetory for'
their pariah, asked them to consldor the
" deplorable condition of thirty thousand
Christian Englishmen living without Christian burial." Btlll more curious was tbo
clerical slip with which we oouclndo. A
gentleman said to tho minister: When do
you expect to seo Deacon 8—again:"
" Never," said the reverend gentlemau, sol*
omnly;" tho deacon is in Heavon."

They are discussing the cost of newspaper enterprise uut at the Pacific

naturally entail a good deal of expense,
the costs in general being rather larger
than in the east and tho amount paid
for telegraphic news being naturally
much greater. Tho British Columbia
papers, notwithstanding these disadvantages, of which they do not complain, but for which they desire to get
due credit, present their readers daily
with full snmmaries of the news of the

The Canadian pluok and energy which
they exhibit deserve a word of praise

A largo audience assembled last
night at the Baptist church to listen to
(J. W, Rnsure, the cow-boy evangelist,
speak of the desperate deeds committed on the frontier by renegade
whites, assisted by Indians. The
speaker was one of the few who joined
themselves together for the purpose of
driving these demons in human form
from tlio frontier. In relating his ox-
patience whilo thus engaged, tho
Bufferings of the innocent came so
vividly before the speaker that fur a
short time ho was overcome with grief.
He showed plainly how wicked man
becomes when completely under tho
influence of the evil one. He spoke
at length on the danger of committing
small sins, saying at one timo thom
ronegrades of thu plains wero innocent
boys, thus showing how fast nny one
will travel the downward rond of sin.
At the close of the meeting three manifested their desire to forsake sin.
"Desperate Deeds" will be conoluded
to-night.   All are welcome.
Port it-lli.
This is a new prospective townsite,
situated about ten miles above this
city, un the south bank of the Fraser,
and immediately at the point where
tliu Westminster Southern first strikes
thu river. The new "port" is named
after our late enterprising citizen, Mr.
Henry Kelts, who owns overu hundred
acres at that point, He has erected
buildings for his own use, established
a steamboat landing, mado arrangement*, for having his land surveyed
into town lots, and, altogether, the
appearances are that "Port Kells"
will soon be the nucleus at least of a
future town. Mr. Kells says he hns
valuable deposits on his land, of
ballasting gravel, the finest stool-gray
builders' sand, and choice yellow
pottery clay. All theso aro nearly
inexhaustable. The different strata
are arranged in the following ordor
over an area of about 60 acres : Fint,
gravel, from 6 to 10 feet deep; second,
fine sand, with a depth of from 8 to 10
feet; and, lastly, a layer of beautiful
Cry clay, from 4 to 0 feet in depth,
take tho description and the
figures from Mr. Kelt's own account, ti
who also adds that the different strain
may bo plainly traced in the river
bank, especially during tlie winter
when the water is low. All these
valuable deposits, as we have intimated,
sre situated at tho junction ol the
Southern Railway with the Fraser
river, and Mr. Kells oxpects shortly
to supply gravel, sand, and pottery
for the entire country.
Mer! lug. at Matsqui and (he -tHsslon.
At a public mooting held at Matsqui
Prairie on Saturday, Jan 26th, to consider tho steps to be taken to get tho
proposed railway bridge across the
Fraser constructed to admit of road
traffic, Mr. John Maclure was voted to
chair, and tbe following resolutions
were unanimously passed:
1. That it would bo very desirable
to havo tho proposed O.P.R. bridgo
across the Fraser in the neighborhood
of the Mission, wherever it may be
located, built to nccommodalo road
traffic, for the following reasons:
(I) There is at present no traffic bridge
across the Fraser below Yale; (2) the
additional oxpeiiBe required to make
such bridge available for road traffio
would not bo great; (3) if available for
road traffic such bridge would be of
great use to a very large extent of
country on both sides of the river;
(4) a traffic bridge will be indispensable in the near future, which it will be
practically impossible to construct from
the great expense of a separate bridge,
and the hindrance to navigation from
having two draw bridges in close proximity to each other.
2. That the meeting request ihe
member for the district, Mr. Chisholm, to use his influence at Ottawa
to have tbe proposed bridge so built.
3. That this meeting request the
Hon. Mr. Robson to lay the matter
before the local government, and get
them to do nil they can to have a stipulation to this effect inserted in the
plans for the said bridge, as the opportunity will not recur of constructing a
a traffio bridge at so small a cost.
4. That the secretary of this meeting be instructed to forward copies of
tho minutes of the meeting to Mr,
Chisholm, M. P., tho Hon. John Rob
son, M. P. P., Mr- ladner M. P. P.,
and Mr. Orr, M. P. P. , and to the
British Columbian New Westminster,
and the World, Vancouver.
At a meeting held at the Mission,

Korion Colohiua.v:—In looking over
the Lieut.■('vernor's opening addreu at
Viotoria yesterday, I wu particularly
struck with the fact that tho only positive wish that was indicated by the
speech was the necessity for a "jnvcnQe
reformatory." This looks rather gloomy
for a young province of the Do-wnlon,
whose second generation, since becoming
a crown colony, has scarcely arrived ot
manhood. What is tbe matter? Can
this suggestion by tho Governor bo ap*
fdicable to tho province generally, or is
t only applicable to tho Capital City!
Ono would think that, bolora publishing
to the world, the necessity of such an
institution, the Governor would advise
preventive legislation. If the youth of a
youthful city, such ns Victoria, or Nsw
Westminster, or Vancouver, or Nanaimo,
are so fallen as to noed such an institution as ii indicated by the Governor's
speech, then, surely, there muat be Institutions In these which havo done their
deadly work, effectually. Would It not
have been better if tho government had
put a check on those schools of vice
which havo been graduating their pupils
so certainly, that It hu become such a
serious question u would appear from
this state document. When this question comes up in the legislature, it is to
bo hoped that there will appear amongst
the members, not only a desire, but a
determination, to stop the manufacture,
by law, or by toleration, of unfortunate
criminal juveniles. ' Prevention Is
better than cure.
It Is to be deplored that in tho Governor's spcoch he has overlooked some of
the most needed measures for legislation.
This provinco has arri veil nt that stage
when the people ought to take a more
active part in the admistration of
their local affairs. Thore should be an
extension of municipal government.
Both cities and rural communities should
be allowed to exercise themselves more
with regard to schools and public improvements. The govc.-nmont of British
Columbia has beeu, and still Is, more
liko an absolute monarchy than a free
democratic government by the people. It
may suit the purpose of tho would-bo
rulers to keep the people in short
clothes, and just as long, u the people
send such creatures to represent thom it
will be so. CK-Jsok,

way's Corn Cure ren toves tho trouble.
