SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Tlio first subinnriiio telephone
cable—about thirty miles long—is
to bo laid between Buenos Ayres
nm! Montevideo,
A mountain of iron ore, 200 feet
high and » BfjUttrc milo in area, has
been found by Dr. Npetling, of the
I.ndian (luologicul Survey, among
the Shan Hills of   Upper  Burmah.
Tho ginseng of China, a plant to
which tlio Chinese ascribe such
remarkable virtues as the renewing
of youthful vigor, is said to be in
such demand that tho root hns sold
for moro than $200 an ounce.
Italy hai oach yoar nearly 300,-
000 cases of typhoid fevor, with 27,-
000 deaths, according to Prof.
lluata. A third of the population
i-reaching tho age of forty-fivo have
7the fever, and more than threo per
cont die from it in some localities.
A much bettor preservative of
food than the borio acid, etc., now
used for keeping fish should bo had
in sterilized infusorial earth, in the
opinion of Prof. P. Waage, the Norwegian chemist. Enormous deposits
of tho earth were discovered in
Norway last year.
Feejeean doctors are said to havo
great faith in massage, which they
have practiced from time immemorial, and have taught to tho Samoans
and the Tongans. Tho rubbing and
kneading of tlie afl'ected part is
sometimes continued for hours,
stimulating tho circulation afld
relieving the pain,
Thb Safest Explosive. — Wet
compressed gun cotton is the safest
high explosive yet produced, says
Mr. Karl Rohrer, U.S.N.. It can
bis readily and safely transported by
any conveyance, and is eminently
convenient to handle on store. It
can be sawed, turned, cut and bored
easily and safely, and the turnings,
cuttings and borings may be worked
over. Dry compressed gun cotton,
which need form only a small percentage of any charge, is safer than
gunpowder.
Ohemibtiiy ov To-Day. — The
subject of the constitution or structure of chemical compounds, states
Prof. Ira llemsen, at present receives more attention from working
chemists than any other, and this
1ms been tlio caso ever since chemistry Ciinio to be a science. Hopeful
attempts are being made to go so
deeply into tho structure of matter
us to determine the shape of its
minutest particles, and to solve the
problem of the arrangement nnd
connection of tho atoms in the
molecule. Tho chemical act it3elf is
being studied iu investigations into
such matters as tho speed of chemical nction, iho iulluonco of mass
upon chemical reactions, and the
relations between tho phenomena of
beat nnd electricity and chemical
action.
Buhmaii's Hairy People. — A
remarkable hairy family has long
existed at tho court of Burmah,
where Lord Crawford saw Shwe
Maong, the first described of, the
family, in 1824. A hairy daughter
—now sixty-four years old—and a
hairy grandson of tho hairy Shwe
Maong and his beautiful wife still
survive, a hairy great granddaughter
having died last year. Soveral
other children of the family have
shown a tendency to develop the
peculiarity, but died when quite
young, and others have exhibited
only normal hairiness. The surviving man is thickly covered with
coarso, gout-like hair on the entire
face, neck, shoulders, breast and
spine, and with a kind of down two
inches long on the limbs. The hair
hiding the woman's face is much
liner, resembling that of the spaniel.
Neither has hair on the hands and
feot. They have no molar teeth,
and in tho uppor jaw havo only tho
two lirst incisors and two   canines.
Books op Medicines.—-Pharma*
copmias published by nulhority of
government or of a medical or pharmaceutical society dato from about
tlie middle of tho sixteenth century.
The early publications of this kind
attributed medical piepertics to such
substances as crab's eyes, pearls,
oyster-shells, coral, human skull and
moss growing on it, blind puppies,
earthworms, the excrement of
various animals, otc. Thoy also
gave hetorogoneous mixtures containing from twenty to seventy or
more ingredients. National pharmacopoeias now oxist in tho Ar*
gentine Republic, Austria, Belguim,
Chili, 1"! recce, Holland, Hungary,
Denmark, Franco, Germany, Great
Britain, India, Japan, Mexico,
Norway, Portugal, Russia, Spain,
Sweden, and the illnited States.
Except in the United ( States and
Mexico, these works are issued
under tho authority of the government, and their instructions, have
the force of law in thoir respective
countries. The French Codex lias
the most extended foreign ' use of
any pharmucopreia, boing tho standard for druggists in a largo part of
Central nnd Sonth America, as well
as in Turkey and other parts of
Europe.* It mentions about 2000
drugs and preparations, which is
more than double tlio average of the
modern pharmacopoeias. On account
of the lack of uniformity in works
nf tliis kind, tlio prepration of an
international pharmacopoeia, to
servo as tho standard cf all nations,
has long beon under  consideration.

DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, March 8.—The budget debate is gettiug tedious now that the
heavy weights on both sides have had
their say. Half a score other speakers havo yet to bo heard and the vote
on Sir Richard Cartwright's resolution
is not likely to be reached before Tuesday next.
The house listened very patiently today to the speech of Mr. Armstrong
before the debate was resumed.
The following bills were read a third
time and passed: An act respecting
the rules of court in relation to criminal matters; an act respecting corrupt
practices in municipal affairs; an aot to
make further provision respecting enquiries concerning public matters; an
act to permit tho conditional release of
first offenders in certain oases,
Mr. Armstrong followed tho same
liiu "adopted by Sir Richard Cartwright.
Mr,' Armstrong reminded the house
of tho fact that last session he had
given notice uf a resolution he had
withdrawn for two reasons, first, bo*
cause tho notice of another resolution
had been given in favor of unrestricted
reciprocity and second, because he feared he might offend somo of .the weak
brethren. Nevertheless, he declared
himself still in favor of commercial
union, and he forthwith proceeded to
give his reasons for the* faith that was
in him. Tho great advantage in this
system ho hold to be the possibility
that it offered for abolishing the customs houses along tho international
boundary and leaving tho vast
army of officers free to do something for tho benefit of the country.
Another favorable point was that commercial union was entirely practicable.
As proof of this ho read Sir Oharles
Tupper'a statement of laat yesr, that
whilo in tho United States he did not
find a single leading politician who
would not hold up both hands for commercial union. Ho contrasted the
heavy tariff uf tho United States with
lhe free trado policy of Great Britain
and quoted tho trade navigation returns to show that at present tho Canadian trado with .tho United States
was greater than that with Great Britain and that whilo the former wat increasing the latter was decreasing.
The other speakers wero Mr. Porter
(conservative), and Mr.' MoMullen (liberal).
The provision in Sir J. S. D. Thompson's resolution regarding tho judges'
salaries providettthat tho salaries of
five county court judges in British
Columbia shall be 92,400 per annum,
nnd that eaoh judge may in addition
receive a salary from the province for
acting ns stipendiary magistrate. The
increase in all the provinces is equal to
$1000 in each case.
Mr. Cook wilt introduce amendments '
to the civil service aot.   The amendments will require residence in Canada
for five years before being eligible to
enter the aervice.

According to our Victoria despatches, yesterday, the legislature
was petitioned by all the blachsmiths
and carriage makers of tho city, to
pass a law requiring all persons who
shall hereafter arrive in B. 0, to
remain one year in the province and
pass a satisfactory examination before they be allowed to onter business as blacksmiths or carriage
makers. This petition will in all
probability receive tho sanction of
our legislators. Jf they would be
consistent, they cannot well refuse
the prayer of the petitioners. They
have, in their unquestionable wisdom,- renewed such a hedge around
the legal profession, and by so doing
have put the strongest kind of an
argument in the mouths of the promoters of protection for blacksmiths
and carriage makers. If a duly qualified legal gentleman from some other
province or country is not to be
allowed to commence to earn a living
by practising his profession until
after twelve mouth's residence in tho
province and an examination at the
hands of an association of lawyers,
pray why, in the name of common
fairness, should not every profession,
trade or calling be similarly protected. There may be reasons why
"what's sauce for the goose isn't
relish for the gander" in this case,
but it would be interesting and
edifying to have these arguments
aired. We hope that the petition
of the blacksmiths and carriage
makers of Victoria may have the
result of knocking a hole through
the sophistries of the lawyers in the
house on the question of protecting
their profession exclusively from
a competition.
The bill relating to the offence of
libel in civil cases, which Mr. Higgins has introduced into the local
house, is a measure that is needed in
this province. Heretofore thore has
been no provincial statute regulating
the proceedure in libel cases, and
English and Canadian statutes und
precedents, somewhat time-worn nnd
behind the spirit of the age in their
intent and operations, have stood for
law in such actions. The practical
result has been that it has been altogether too easy to procure damages
against a newspaper. In fact, the
publishers of a newspaper are on
the "ragged edge" continually lest
some stray paragraph of local news,
telegraph, or correspondence, should
creep into their columns and give a
pretext to some one in search of a
financial lift, or who wishes to
gratify a grudge, to institute a suit
for damages. Although heavy damages are seldom allowed, the case
generally goes against the newspaper, which has to stand the costs,
and these are never light. While
the public is, of course, entitled to
protection against abuses of the
press, a reputable and conscientious
press should be secured against
speculative and malignant prosecution. It is in the public interest
that the press should not be unnecessarily muzzled, and Mr, Higgins' bill is a long step in tho right
direction. We published the text of
the bill in full the other day, and
will not refer to it more particularly
at this time. Wo trust that the bill
may pass the legislature and become
law. Mr. Higgins' long experience
in the newspaper business eminently
qualifies him for initiating legislation
pertaining to libel.
The "nps and downs of life" nover,
perhaps,   receivo  a more striking
illustration than iu the   experiences
which evory occupant of the White
House is fated to undergo. Elevated
to the head of a great nation, and endowed with almost dictatorial powers, compared with those of a king
or queen under constitutional government, the president of the United
States enjoys, during his short term
ol four years, all the importance, respect, and homage dne the  embodiment of his high offlce, not only from
his sixty millions of loyal  countrymen, covering half a continent, but
from  the  entire  civilized   world.
When the four years have flown, all
too swiftly, ere be has had time to
more than adjust himself to his lofty
surroundings, the president of yesterday has to bundle his traps into
s> baggage car, and himself  into   a
ooftoh^and drop with a jerk from
the firmament of Kpter and position
Into the obscurity of a private citiien.   There  is  something   almost
pathetic about the sudden transition,
and more than one of the retiring
presidents has, with the instinct of
.  seipreeervation,    endeavored    to
"break the fall" by keeping himself
Wore the public in  some  way  or
other—a popular and soothing "letdown" being a trip round the world,
a European tour, or some such di-
renfon. Presidents'wives, of course,
suftr^rith their lords, as they share
tha privileges and honors of the
office,    Notwithstanding the  faot
that it is alaajM a "oold day" when
» president oWhe United States first
hu the "ex" prefixed to bis title,
the experience is a good test of and
discipline for character, and besides
nips iu the bud any undue risings
of ambition or pride in tlie "servant
of the people.'' A well-balanced,
philosophical mind will accept with
equanimity and dignity what he
foresaw and prepared himself to anticipate. Judged by this standard,
Grover Cleveland has acquitted himself well in the ordeal which overtakes all "first citizens" of the republic. The ex-president has cheerfully and philosophically stepped
from the Whito House into his lawyer's office in New York, and entered
upon his duties as a private citizen
as if they had never been disturbed.
A few days before the inauguration
of his successor, Mr. Cleveland was
interviewed in Washington by the
representative of a leading New
York paper, and gave his views
briefly on a variety of subjects. The
ex-president expressed in unmistakable terms his sense of relief in view
of his release from the cares and
anxieties of offlce. He is not ungrateful by any means, he says, for
tho high honor which was conferred
upon him four years ago, and declares uo man could be indifferent to
such an oxpression of confidence on
the part of American citizens. At
tho same time publio office, faithfully administered, necessitates a
great many personal sacrifices and
an almost appalling amount of hard
work. Domestic relations are in-
vnded, homo life is almost an impossibility, while accumulating and
pressing responsibilities of the most
serious and grave character tax the
physical as weli as the mental energies of the incumbent to the utmost.
To receive the presidency of a nation
like this is an honor only equalled
by the privilege of retiring to private
life with the consciousness that he
has endeavored to serve tho public
interests with an eye single to the
welfare of the whole people. The
foregoing are Mr. Cleveland's own
sentiments. That the ex-president
has been a rugged worker and has
not spared himself is easily admitted.
Two o'clock is the time he set for
retiring, but it frequently happened
that the clock struck three in the
morning before he could leave his
desk. Still he shows no wear or
tear. Mr. Cleveland plainly has
no intention, although retired to
private life, to sulkily give up all
interest in affairs pertaining to his
country's welfare and interests, but
the same principles which guided
him in office he will endeavor to further stilt. To the representative of
the press he said: "It is plain that
under a Republican administration
thero has been given a fresh and
dangerous impetus to monopolies,
trusts and combines. Immense fortunes have been accumulated, unknown in the days of our fathers.
They are a peculiarity of the present
times, and the control which they
arbitrarily exercise over the cost of
existence is a direct menace to the
welfare of the workingmen and of
our farmers. The party which willingly encourages these evil tendencies is not worthy to be called tho
party of the people. The Democratic party must, therefore, be true to
itself, whether in power or out. It
must keep itself the representative
of the poor and rich alike, and maintain a solid front against the ruthless
encroachments of combined capital,
which result in dividing our population into the abnormally rich on the
one hand and large multitudes of
unprotected and laboring masses on
tho other. The country wants more
of the spirit of true democracy, and
the Democratic party, if loyal to it-
self,must win in the long run. There
never was a time whon wise counsels
and harmonious action in the Democratic party was more Important to
the people of the country than now."
Mr. Cleveland boldly nailed his
colors to the mast during the late
presidential campaign, thus challenging the defeat which overtook
him as u consequence. He has
never hauled those colon down, and
has plainly no intention of doing so.
That he will be heard from again
most unmistakably in their defence,
is almost certain,
Amos Hudgin, Toronto, writes: "I
have been a sufferer from Dyspepsia for
the past alx yeara. All the remedies I
tried proved uaelcaa, until Northrop k
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dya-
peptic Cure was brought under my notico. I have used two bottles with the
best results, and can with confidence
recommend it to thoso afflicted in like
manner."

In every city there are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, make them
objects .of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation iB recognized
and respected, such a man have we
in the subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1862 and
has, through all the vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trade, maintained tho even tenor of his way.
His transactions have increased
year by year, and the circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widening and his firm extending until he now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in British Columbia. His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. AH this space is filled
with a complete and extensi ve assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockerywnre, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, house furnishings,
iron pipe and fittings. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and docs every variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, yas-fitiings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
house in the trade which carries a
more complete stock or whoso facilities surpass those of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of time this gentleman
has been in business and tho success he has attained are better
recommendations than the loudest
praise we could possibly give. We
may mention, however, to our readers who have not yet become acquainted with this firm, that none
in the Northwest has a better reputation for fair and honorable dealing.

PAUL'S CHOICE;
Or, How Belle Brandon Lost   a
Good Husband*
Paul Raymond had confidentially told
somo ot his young lady friends that he was
ready to tako a wife as soon as be could find
iho right sort of a girl, and in some way it
had been whispered around from one to
Another, until every fair one in Paul's
large circle of acquaintances had heard It
It was only a trifling bit of intelligence, but
it created as great a stir among the young
Indies as a declaration of war could have
created among the diplomats of a foreign
country. It fell upon the paternal pocket-
books like a financial crash, for every marriageable miss proceeded at once to adorn
herself for the conquest. It proved to be
a grand hoy-day for milliners and dressmakers though, and tbe bewitching hats
antl lovely costumes they turned out ought
to havo melted the stony heart of any old
bachelor. There wore picnics, excursions
nml tea-parties without number, all planned
In honor of Paul Raymond. Fond mothers
looked hopeful) and. did not believe any human heart could long resist so vigorous a
besieging as was laid to Paul's heart, and
oach one fancied that her own especial
charge would eventually win the victory.
IJ it, Paul was the fortunate possessor of
p.ontyof common sense, and lovely dresses,
mis, frizzes, oto., lost their effect upon him
uu 1033 thoro' was a true, kind heart and
lu good supply of practical knowledge back,
[of them. Paul's mother was an eminently j
vjonsiblo woman, too. Though not obliged to
■lorform any of tho labor necessary to the
preservation of hor well-ordered household,
3ha was none tho loss capablo of doing bo, if
.hu occaaion required. The sudden depart-
uro of a servant caused no consternation in
her house, ond she frequently advised her
lion nevor to marry the girl wbo looked with
disdain upon tho performance of household
duties, or regarded a knowledge of tbe
- imo as an inferior accomplishment.
Paul's father was a successful merchant,
ind had lately made his son an equal part-
lior in the business, besides deeding to him a
1 inarming little cottage tn the suburbs of the
ity. Add to such brilliant financial prospects
i pronossesBlng young man'- with oxom-
jlary habits, and it was no wondor tho girls
ooltsd longingly at the pretty cottago and
|rwuiulst mid wondered who the future oc-
iipaht would be. None of thom seemed
kcly to win the coveted prise, however,
inloBa it were Bella Brandon.
Paul and Bello had been warm friends
lucD childhood, and it had often been pre-
r.c'.o I that tho friendship would someday
Ijjan into a closer union, and now it seemed
.cry probable that such predictions might
■ome truo, for Paul showed decided prefor-
l-uoe for Hollo's society.
) " What n handsome couple they would
n-ilml" suld afushionable lady, who bad no
'..'.i jlitofa of hor own. And it did seem as
LuKigU UjIIo was well fitted to adorn tho
Igh position that Paul Raymond's wife
/ould occupy, for sbe was highly accom-
llshed In tho modern acceptance of that
aim Sho had passed thne years at a
wliiouablo hoarding-school, and could speak
'ruuch and German quite fluently, could
lay all tho now and popular music, and had
[let-orated every thing from garret to cellar,
jvith her brush.
Though In humble circumstances, Belle's
■mroiits had expended muoh money upon
"heir daughter's education, hoping to fit
lor for a teacher; but she bad been out of
ohool ovor a yoar, and as yet manifested no
inclination to teach, but seemed contented
I-> on joy the comforts and luxuries that for
[vliich others toiled.-
Mra. Raymond was not pleased with her
■on's growing fondness for Belle.  She was
.atiaflcil that Belle was, not qualified to bo-
hmo a successful home-maker, and without
(mentioning her misgivings to Paul, quietly
determined that he should have an opportunity of finding ont for himself, and laid
ior plans accordingly.   She had for some
■\uio contemplated a visit to some friends in
; distant city, and concluded to go at once,
hutting up her house, and leaving Paul to
lourd with the Brandon's, for they kept
liourdors, and were patronized by the mer-
IliantB and clerks of the oity.
Paul wu well satisfied with his mother's
i-rangement, though he little suspected her
Inotivo. The thought of eating three meals
day at the same tablo with Belle's bright
face was vory pleasing, and a week later,
j'-rbon he found himself comfortably en-,
Iconced in ono of Mrs.Brandon's coxy rooms,
U oould not help wishing that his mother)
Ivould make a long visit There wu none
if the elegant furnishing of his own home,
Lut overy thing presented an aspect of ro*
Bnement and cheerfulness, from the bright
liome-made rugs on the floor to the snowy
■White curtains looped baok with blue rib-
■uns, that adorned the windows.   As he
Luzed admiringly around the room, he
thought what a lovely home his cottage
Vould become when presided over by the
Iho samo fairy whoso wand, he fancied, had
o beautified this apartment, for, lover-like,
io attributed evory thing to Belle.
Tho Brandon family consisted of four
nembors at the Ume of  this writing—
Ir. and Mrs. Brandon, Belle, and Alice
■Tool, an orphan niece of Mrs. B.'s, who wu
-udying music in the city and attending
.ho normal school, aad working for her
[board at her aunt's.
. For soveral days after taking up his
iboile with tho Brandon's Paul wu late to
-rcakfust He lingered on purpose, that
.o might have the privilege of breakfasting
[with tho family, and perhaps of having his
coffee poured by Belle. But his littlo plan
pulled, for it was always Alice who poured
his coffee, and Alice who placed the delicious toast, poached eggs and hot cakes so
temptingly before him. Belle seldom ap*
Hwarod at tho breakfast table so early, and
'when she did ret there wu too intent upon
getting her own wants supplied to think of
ministering to othera.
" Did you leavo some tout in the oven to
.keop warm for Belief" uked Mrs, Brandon
hi Alice, in a low tone, u the family were
jjibont to leavo the broakfast tablo one
"morning, after Paul had been thero about a
woolt,
What Is tho matter with Belle that sbe
-can not eat breakfast with us moro' than
ono morning In seven!" asked Mr. Bandon
of bis wife, for he had heard the question
she addressed to Alice, though tt had not
been intended for his ears.
" Sho wu busy with her music and painting until a late hour lut. cveniig." answered Mrs. Brandon, trying hard to apologize for hor daughter'a tardiness.
"Music and painting!" sneerlngly re*
allied Mr. Brandon. "I think tt Is about
timo Belle busied herself with something of
! somo account X am very muoh displeased
.wlththo way our daughter's education hu
turned out. It wu just so muoh timo and
money thrown away. She thinks ahe is a
fino musician; but I would rather hear one
sweot home song, such as Alice sang lut
evening, than all the Mikado trash she
could" play in a year, and u for painting,
I'd like to know what good thore Is in daubing posies on every little rag thero Is
around the house. Yesterday I saw her
covering a little duot-pan with something,
and I suppose she Intends to paint a daisy
oa It, May-bo I will get It for a Christmas
present. If sbe would get ont hero In this
kitchen and uso a dust-pan u it should bo
used, I would be better pleased."
" Belle has no natural liking for housework," replied Mra. Brandon, "and I do not
think it advisable to force one's children to
do work that is distasteful to them."
"Neither do I think It advisable for a
daughter to spend her time In Idleness and
tomfoolery while her mother tolls and
drudges every day of her life, and I hopo
you will see, after this, tbat Belle performs a
share of this work," answered Mr, E, very
decidedly.
Mrs. B. was evidently muoh annoyed ot
such an exposure of Belle's faults in tho
presence of others, especially Paul Raymond, but it [Could not be helped, for Mr.
Brandon wu a man who always spoke his
mind very freely, upon every occasion, regardless of tho consequences. Paul excused
himself from the tablo as soon he he could,
for he felt very muoh out of sorts with himself and everybody else. He wu provoked
at himself for bavin? been late to breakfast, and thus compelled to listen to a family discord, and he felt almost angry with
Mr. Brandon for having, as ho belioved, so
unjustly censured Belle. He could not, or
would not, believe that Belle wu so Indolent and selfish as her father evidently
thought her to be.
Mrs. Brandon was a very hard-working
woman. She said she had always worked
hard, and expected she would always havo
to, but Bhe hoped that her children might
havo lighter burdons to carry. Liko mnny
another mistaken mother, she toiled early
and late, nover asking Belle to uslat hor
with any of tho work, but allowing hor to
devote aU her time to books, music, fancy
work, visiting, oto, Tbe result was Belle
grew to womanhood without acquiring any
knowledge whatever of housekeeping, and,
instead of being the help to her mothor
that she ought to have been, she lookod
with contempt upon "Cookology," as sho
jestingly called her mother's work, and
seemed to regard'it as a sort of degradation. She said sbe thought familiarity with
pots, kettles and such greasy commodities
was destructive of refinement besides being bo ruinous to one's hands; and ono day,
when her father, who never sympathized
with her erroneous notions, chided hor for
not helping her mother, she carelessly replied: "I do think there might bo ono
lady in the Brandon family who can do
something besides wuh dishes. All that I
have over seen of them seemed to have no
ambition outside of their kitchens and dining-rooms." And so the foolish girl
thought herself a lady superior to the
patient mother, who tolled on from day to
day, adding so much to tho comfort and
happinesB of those around her. But " all
work and no pfay " not only produces dullness, as in tho caso of Jack of old, but it
will eventually wear out the strongest constitution. Mrs. Brandon bad been slightly
indisposed for some iime, and one morning
was taken suddenly worse immediately
after breakfast. A physician was summoned, who said her illness was caused by
over-work, and that a rest of at least six
weeks would be necessary to restore hor to
health. Mr. Brandon was greatly perplexed. He knew not what to do. Dinnor
time was coming, his wife sick in bed, and
Alice out of town spending hor Christ-
mas vacation. He appealed to Belle for help,
but she Baid she would as soon think of flying to the moon as of preparing dinner for
thoso mon. Disgusted with Belle's reply,
Mr. Brandon notified his boarders that owing to his wife's illness and his daughter's
incompetence, he could not furnish dinnor,
but would have every thing in order by supper time. He then sent a team to bring
Alice home, and returned to bis sick wife,
feeling, u he aftewarda expressed it a
deeper sense of humiliation than he hnd ever
felt before. Tbe thought that his only
daughter, a full-grown woman, could not
help him in such an emergency wus vory
mortifying.
Alice camo back soon after noon, and soon
had the household machinery in motion
again, and when the boarders came at six
o'clock the savory odors of a well-cooked
supper welcomed them.
" How verv unfortunate It was for mamma to get sick whilo Alice was away," said
Belle to Paul, u they were all Boated at tho
supper table. "I think wo will got along
nicely now, though, for Alice seems to bo
perfectly at home In the kitchen. I toll her
sho ought to givo up her music and confine
herself strictly to housework, for sho would
be bo successful there."
That wu perhaps the most unlucky
speech Belle Brandon ever made. Paul had
felt his Infatuation for her steadily declining for Borne time, and now her thoughtless
words, together with the loss of hia dinnor,
woll nigh completed the work. As ho compared the stylishly-dressed young lady at
the table, who seemed to be of no use in the
world, with tho modest little figure in tbo
neat blue calico dress, flitting about dishing up the viands that her own hands had
prepared, tho comparison seemed all in
favor of Alice.
When Mrs. Raymond had been home two
weeks, she said to hor husband, u thoy sat
alone in the library one evening, that sho
believed hor littlo scheme had proven successful, for Bho had noticed that Paul did
not take Bello riding any more. Mr. Raymond, who had been taken Into bis wife's
confidence, smiled significantly, and said
he guessed the young man wu on the right
track now.
Tho winter months slipped quickly away,
and when tho violets and crouses gladdened tho earth again, Paul's cottago was
remodeled and beautifully furnished. Then
there wu a quiet wedding, a short tour and
Paul Raymond and bis wife settled down in
their elegant home. Mrs. Raymond was
well pleased with Paul's choioe of a wifo,
for Alice is a lady of oulture and refinement as woll as a model housekeeper.
Paul is proud of inviting his young frionds
home to dine, for he knows by put experience tbat there is a skillful hand at the
heltn.-LauraGit)bi}nitinlMdttt} Mme Journal 	
SOME   QUEER   REQUESTS.
How Rural Constituents Mako Use of
Tholr Congressmeu.
Tho queor requests that aro received by
members of Congress from their consiitu-
nnts ure Enumerable, writes a Washington corrcsiioiidonk' Tho other day a Western member had a letter from a rural cup-
porter, who wrote that he had seen in the
newspapers that bay Was selling at a vary
high price at Washington, and that he had
shipped near load to tbo Congressman's address, and hoped ho would be able to dispose of it profitably and remit him tbe pro
ceeds. Tho mombor read tho letter to rov
oral others sitting around him with much
amusement not unmixed with annoyance
and dismay. His feelings underwent nn
agreeable change, however, whon ono of
tho listeners said, quietly: " I have several
horses hero, and my coachman told me this
morning that the hay is about usod up. I'll
toko two tons of the car load." "I'll tako a
ton of .t," aaid another, and ao tho word
passed around, and inside of ten minutes
tbo ontiro car load Wu sold. The mombor,
with much satisfaction, remitted to his
thrifty constituent thirty dollars moro than
tbo latter had expected.
Another member received a letter from a
constituent whioh ran In this way;   .
"Doro Bur: Sum timo ego I cent Bum
ohickns to Mcssors. —- & —, comi.-dmu
men, Na — —- itreet, Wuhlngton, and
they hov uut sent me iny munny, and I wish
of it ain't asking tu much as how u would
kolloot and farard kooplnout onuf tu pay
ocpenBes for collockshun, pleas du thiBuz
sun os u kin ei I am hard up,"
Of course the member made the " collockshun" and didnt charge any thing for expenses.
Constituent! of Congressmen In every
part of the country ought to make much
more uso of their Representatives In this
way than thoy do. It Is part of the duty of
a Representative to sell hay, butter and
eggs for his supporters and make "coUcck-
snuns."
It is to bo hoped that the above pxu!:!i-:.ih
of tho kind and successful attention .:v.\ .:',:■ I
to such requosts will result in a wldoapi-oud

It is now pretty generally understood that stoek holders uf the Northern
Pacific have purchased all but n one-
tontli intereat in tlio Bellingham Bay
& Westminster railroad. Messrs,
King, Dickinson and Charlton, of the
Northern Paciiic company, hnve been
in the city for somo days. Tho transfer is believed to signify that the line
to Now Westminster will bo quickly
completed and a connection with tho
Nurthcrn Paciiic at Tacoma commenced
without delay.—IWiatcom Democrat.
Seattle's flewer-iie.
Col. Geo. E. Waring, of Newport,
has submitted an elaborate report to
Seattle on a sewerage system for that
city. The estimated cost of con-
structing the system aooording to
the plans nnd specifications submitted
with the report is §274,063,04, to
which may bo added 820,7Iii.40, making a total of S324,679.0.). The area
over whicli the sewers liavo been extended ia very large, yot it does not
cover all the area of the oity. Tho
sewers are to bo built uf vitrified pipe,
the main sewers tu bo built of brick,
and carried 1,000 feet into the harbor
by means uf iron pipes.
tinsliminti Culture.
It is reported that u certain gentleman who haa a farm in a pine forest
near Victoria will start a mushroom
culturo ou his property. This is good
news, for mushroom culture in British
Columbia ia ns yet unknown. Thero
is nothing uncertain about it, and
skilled labor ia uot necessary tu make
it successful. The chief labor in connection with it ia in preparing the
manure and building the beds, nnd
thnt is a mutter requiring but little
time. Nearly all the labor for the
next ten weeks consists in main tailing
an even temperature. Wo hope that
thia new industry will be developed on
the Island during the coming summer.

Uaic Ingratitude.
When the Olympian arrivod at Seattle on Tueaday, one of the Victoria
passengers, nn elderly man, lost his
balance while walking along tho gang
plank nnd fell overboard. Several
ropes whore thrown to the man, but
ho did not seem to be able to catch
hold of them. Just as he was about to
sink tho third time Androw Hennoa-
sey, quartermaster of the Olympian,
without waiting to divest himself
of his clothing, sprang into the water
and succeeded in rescuing the drowning man. No sooner had the man
been landed on the dock when he
strode rapidly nway from the scone
without oven thanking his brave re-
scurur. Mr. Hennessey in saving the
ingrate's life destroyed his watch and
a good Buit of clothes. The namo of
the rescued man could not ascertained.-— Colonist,
