NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A farm journal says that "the
best way to preservo apples is to
keep them exposed lo tho air."
That is tho proper method when
you ure sure that there is not a boy
within a hundred miles; otherwise
the safest plan is to put the apples
in a burglar-proof safe with a combination lock.—Ex.

Writing from Grahamstown, Oape
Colony, Mv. L. A. Eddie gives an
nccount of some extraordinary
showers that felt there on August
14 last. A storm commenced near
midday and lasted till lato the next
morning. At intervals during this
period heavy showers of rain fell,
after which large areas were found
to be covered with water as black
as ink. Two theories nre put forward to account for the observed
fucts, one attributing it to dust in
the air from a recent volcanic eruption, while the other considers the
phenomena to be due to the passage
of the earth through a dense meteoric stream, the dust of which
suspended in tho atmosphere was
carried down by tho rain, and being
essentially iron, formed, on being
mixed with the organic acids of the
soil, a true ink.
An exchange says: It is a mat*
tor of surprise to many people to
learn that thero ure still in the state
of New York 1900 Indians who live
on reservations und maintain their
tribal relations. Four hundred and
fifty of these livo on the Onondaga
reservation, 178 on the Oneida, 439
on the Tuscarora, 500 on the Tona-
wanda, 150 on the Sliimiecock, 1044
on the St. Regis, 1305 on the
Cattaraugus, and 834 on the Allegany. A portion of these Indiaus
are nominally Christians, but the
great mnjority of them lmve never
embraced Christianity and are
classed as "pagans." Tlie state of
morals on all tho reservations is extremely bad, the marriage relation
being almost entirely disregarded.
Civilization has swept past and surrounded these involuted barbarians,
but it has not improved their
condition.
Tho new German minister, says
tho New York Sun correspondent at
Washington, is now quite the foreign
attraction, and not altogether
because he is new or becauso his
court coat is more brilliant with
sparkling decorations than many
other court coats. The man's face
is fascinatingly handsome. He is a
tall blonde, the yellow blonde, and
his physique is of the splendid type
of the German soldier. In the conventional black broadcloth he would
have the unmistakable air called
"distinguished." Fancy, then, this
tull, blonde Teuton in the court uniform of dark blue cloth, half covered
with gold embroidery, and tho breast
of the coat half covered with the
shining jewels of decorations, his
royal rewards for sorv.ee, and you
see by far the most striking figure
in the diplomatic corps, and one
attracting most notice at the reception. His homely face is positively
fascinating in its strength, and
quick, varying expression.
This is the style in which a leading
Edinburgh paper does up the last
Gladstonian triumph: It is done,
and well done! West Edinburgh
gave a brave result; Ayr bore the
tide of victory splendidly on; Govan
is magnificent. The Olydeside
workers—men of political thew and
sinew—have driven into the heads
of tho coercionist party a lesson
that will remain, bolted and ri vetted,
with a majority of 1071 votes. To
hnvo won a seat, by however trifling
u number of votes, would have
warranted rejoicing; but Govan has
dono much more. It has dealt the
manner of stroke which tho adversary understands. Public opinion
in Irelnnd may be insolently ignored;
ministers nnd their allies may dishonor themselves by flouting the
spirit of the constitution and
reviling the people; when Scotchmen
wield this Thor's hammer even the
strongest government quakes. The
unionists will invoke miracles to
disguise the effects of tho blow. They
will ovolve harmless mysteries from
their ownspoeinlmultiplication table.
But a majority of 1071 is the sort of
fact that abides, looming largo above
the mists of sophistry. And if it
cannot lie obscured, as little can it bo
molted down iu that sooty unionist
pot whioh is always employed to
change a defeat into a "moral" vie
tory. One explanation and one
only will suffice—tho electors of
Govan have resolved to mako an end
of the government, which has been
tested ond proved to be base metal.
That is why the hammer lias como
down with so much heartiness and
native pith. Scotland cheers the
stroke.

ANOTHER   WOMAN MUTILATED,
Edinburgh, Fob. 11.— A sensation
was caused at Dundee by tho finding,

body of a woman. The abdomen was
ripped up and the body squeezed into
a wooden chest. It is thought by
many to be the handiwork of -'Jaok

JACK TUB  HIPPER.
London, Feb. 11.— Another woman
murder and mutilation has been discovered, and the probable murderer
arrested. The murder is similar in its
details to those committed by tho
Whitechapel fiend, "Jack the Ripper."
The following are the circumstances as
far sb known: The man and woman.

weeks sou and took a small houso.
They snid they came from London.
Suspicion was directed against them
from tho beginning and they wero
watchod by detectives. Recently the
woman disappeared and tho detectives
had not seen her leuvo the houso and
no trace could be found of her departure. Yesterday the man was arrested and the house searched, when a
horrible discovery was made. A box
in the basement was broke:: open by
the police and in it was found the body
of the missing woman. Her head hud
been cut off, legs amputated, and
stomach ripped open. The awful work
bore all the appearance of having been
done by the same hand thnt perpetrated the successive horrors in London.
There is reason to believe the man now
in custody is that man. In this respect, howover, the police authorities
maintain great reticence.
o'brien removed.
Dublin, Feb. 11.—Wm. O'Brien
was removed today under a Btrong
military and police guard from Clon-
mel to Tralee. At Clonmel a large
crowd gathered and stoned tho guards,
who made a charge upon the crowd
and forced them back by means of
their batons. Finally they got the
prisoner safely on tho train. At Tipperary another demonstration occurred. The people were apprised of
the removal and when the train arrived
there was a large crowd at the station.
They respected the officers, who dispersed them.

THE PARNELL COMMISSION.
London, Feb. 0.—Tho sessions of
the Parnell Commission were resumed
this morning. Lecaron's cross-examination was 0-intioued. He aaid that
during the last fortnight he got various
documents from Mr. Anderson, an
official connected with the home office,
who allowed him to nee all the correspondence with the department on this
subject. Mr. Anderson afterwards
introduced Lecaron to Secretary Hous*
ton, of the Loyal Patriotic Union.
The witness said for the first three
years of bis self-imposed enlistment as
a spy, he received no pay from _ the
government, and now he only received
pay in part. Mr. Anderson had op-
Dosed his testifying before the commission, and declurod if he did so ho
would do it on his own responsibility.
Mr. Andetson selected documents he
thought would be useful in giving evidence, but Mr. Houston selected those
whioh had been read in court, "I
made the flrst proposal to come here
and testify," said Lecaron. Referring
to the American, witness said that the
Irish Brotherhood had captured nud
controlled the National League. Lecaron said ho had practiced modicino
and kept a drug store and had becomo
rich. He had hold high military
offices in the brotherhood, but nevor
an executive office. Bradley, of Philadelphia, wss now at the head of the
executive. In 1882 tho Brotherhood
numbered 22,000 members. The number is now higher and increasing. The
suppression of the league md the persecution of tho Irish members of parliament gave an impetus to the organi
zation. "Devoy," said Lecaron, "is a
professional Irish politician." After
tho convention in 1881, both parties
were of the aaino mind about tho outrages. None thought that ihe league
would become a source of dancer to
the brotherhood. Sir Charlesl iluBsel
quoted from a report which read that
"serious danger menaces our league
which threatens to crush a revolutionary movement." The witness said ho
believed tho wordB in the report, "extreme loaders," referred to tho Parnellite members of parliament, The
league and brotherhood sent subscriptions lo the league in Ireland. The
brotherhood tried to control the subscriptions intended for tho league.
Lecaron said that all tho delegates to
the convention had credentials from
the league or clubs affiliating therewith. Sir Charles Russell asked that
Lecaron's letters to the government
concerning this matter should be produced. Lecaron said, "Do you wish
to ri-jk men's lives?" Sir Charles
Russell: "The judges will rend the
named first and then decide whether
the names should be published."
Later Sir Charles Russell handed to
the judges the paper, stating that it
contained so grave a statement that he
wished to obtain the opinion cf the
judges as to whether it should lie
noticed. The witness said that in tho
west of America the Irish demonstrations were exclusively and in the cast
mainly in the hands of the revolutionary party. At most of tho meetings
the mayors of the respective towns
presided and respectable people attended. Sir Charles Russell quoted
from tho preamble of the constitution
of the National League of America to
show that tho origin of tho organisation was the establishment of a peasant
proprietorship and jusfc law*. The
witties. said that General Jones was
tho originator of tho communications
between the "1. R. B." and the'Russian minister nt Washington in view of
a possible war between England and
Russia.
ASSIGNMENT.
Boston, Feb. 9.—GHdden nnd Cur*
tis, selling agents of the Pacific Guano
Co., and of tho Ohio & Western Coal
Co., assigned to Jno. C. Ropers for
the benefit of creditors. Their liabilities are very heavy, consistin-*
largely of endorsements on paper of

the creditors will be held Boon. The
firm have endorsed paper of the Ohio

creditors.

Judgment was given on Saturday by
the Ottawa supremo court in the appeal case of tho Manitoba Mortgage
Co. vs. tho Bank of Montreal. The

Tho proposition of the Coquitlnm
Water Works Co., tho ptirticuhirsof
which   have   been   laid before our
readers, has  been beforo   tho   city
council for two weeks now.   At the
Inst meeting no action   was  taken
on tho matter, but it will, probably,
come  up   to-night.    No  ono   will
blame   the   council   for taking sufficient time before  deciding on  so
important a question ns   the   city's
future water works.    At the   same
time, all possiblo expedition should
be used, and the works   got   under
way.   An   alternative  scheme for
supplying the city with   water  has
been mentioned.   We know nothing
of the details, however, with the exception that the idea uppenrs to   bo
to take the water from   tho   rivor,
forcing it into reservoirs on tho hill
by means of powerful pumping  apparatus.   Between two schemes, if
there bo two, thoro must be a choice;
and no choice should be made with
out tho council and the public being
mado   thoroughly   acquainted with
every detail, every   advantage   and
disadvantage, of tho   two  different
propositions for supplying the  city
with water and tho means for sewerage.    On tho face of things, being
unacquainted, us we havo intimated,
with the ndvantuges that   can  be
urged in favor of the second scheme,
we  should,   in the interests of the
city, unhesitatingly pronounce   the
Coquitlnm Water Works scheme the
best that cm be proposed.    In tbo
first place, it is a gravitation system,
which obviously has gre.it advantages
over   a  scheme  necessitating   the
pumping  of water into a reservoir
from   tho   rivor.   Then tho water
supply—from a mountain  lake—is
known to be the purest possible, us
well ns inexhaustible; it is available
at all times, and tho high   level of
the lake insures a pressure   thut   is
guaranteed to throw water 100 feet
above the highest point in the city.
This last feature   is   invaluable   in
connection with firo protection nnd
sewerage, as well as for hotels and
other purposes.    Water   from   tho
river, on the other hand, would  re
quiro   filtering, and even supposing
the pumping machinery suffered   no
disastrous break-downs, the   service
would hardly be so  satisfactory us
from the gravitation system.   As to
the respective cost to the city of tho
two schemes, we aro not prepared to
make a comparison.    Tho Ccquitlaui
Oo. huvo laid their proposition, embracing tho cost to the city of their
schemo,   before   the  council.   Wo
have already characterized this proposition as n reasonable otic and, on
the   whole,   favorable  to tho city.
With rcgnrd to tho provision   that,
at  tho  end  of ten years, the city
might tako over tho water works at
some fair valuation, to be   mutually
greed upon,   some   more  definite
clause   might  bo  substituted   we
believe;   for   instance,    that   the
city should obtain possession of the
water works ut the end of 10 years,if
it wished by reimbursing tho com
pany for all   its  outlay   with   tho
addition of 10   per  cent,   on  tho
amount so expended.   This, however, is merely a detail to bo arranged according   to the judgment of
the council.   Otherwise, the proposition of the Coquitlam Water Works
Co. appears to be a very fair  one,
ns wo have intimated.   As no definite proposals have yet  been  furnished by   the   promoters   of  the
second scheme, we ore iu the dark
as to tho proposed cost to the  city.
But oven if tho cost of the Coquitlam
water  works   should  considerably
exceed that of the other, it would by
no moans follow that the cheaper
schemo should bo adopted;   In fact,
itwould require  very  strong reasoning to   convince   us   that    the
Coquitlam .Water   Works   schemo
was not, everything considered, tho
best by largo odds of any that could
possibly   be  submitted,   and    we
believe that the  majority   of  our
citizens think so too.
a satirical vein. The truo criticism,
however, lies in the simple statement that "journalists nro born, not
made.'1 Journalism is not an exact
science, the fundamental principles
of which can bu mustered in the
classroom, and any attempt to define laws and principles for Iho conduct of a newspaper must eventually
proyo fruitless. Theoretically, it is
very instructive to lecture upon the
conduct of a newspaper to u class of
under-graduates, and impress upon
their minds .the peculiar rules and
customs prevailing in a newspaper
oflice. The professor can resolve his
class into a working staff—have
editorials written, givo news assignments, edit copy, cull for literary
reviews, nnd speoialsj but us all this
will bo dono as an exorcise, und not
us practical work, it is questionable
whether it will bo of any more value
to the student than a like amount
of freshmen rhetoric or sophomore
essay work. It certainly does not
equal one-tenth of the practical experience of newspaper work obtnined
from u year's connection with a college paper. Unlike law and medicine, journalism presents no great
principlo3 to bo mustered. The successful journalist depends moro upon
his knowledge of men and events,
combined with a faculty for the
graphic expression of thought, than
ho docs upon defined laws uud
precedents. There is no such thing
us a precedent in journalism. Each
paper 1ms its individuality as strongly impressed upon its pages us n
man's character is written upon his
countenance. Methods which have
proved successful in certain instances und localities, when tried
elsewhere will lead to certain failure.
A newspaper, besides being a news-
gleaner, reflects tho publio sentiment of tlie community in which it
exists. In order to accomplish thia,
its staff, from tho editor-in-chief to
the "niglit police," must possess a
knowledge of men and events which
cannot he acquired in the class-room,
and enn only be obtained through
nature and contact with the world.
Individuality is tho first essence of
success in journalism. Tho mnn
who employs the stereotyped rules
of expression acquired from Hurt's
rhetoric und instilled by the college
professor, will never advance to tho
front rank of journalism; He must
develop un individuality of his own,
and his work should reflect his observations of the world in characteristic language. Every newspaper
has a character of its own.

A writer in America gives some
interesting obst-rvutions on journalism and how journalists are produced. Snys tho writor: The (-reat
Cornell School of Journalism has
been tested and found wanting.
The New York World, animated by
a spirit of journalistic enterprise,
conceived the idea of testing the capacity of the Cornoll suhool to do
actual newspaper work. Hearing
that the students of tho university
were to be vaccinated en masse, tho
managing editor of the World  tele*
• graphed to tho professor of journalism as follows; "Plans'- wire the
World full report made by your
school of the vaccination of Oornell'u
thousand students—scenos, incidents, etc. Must file the report by
7 o'clock, os a tost of  efficiency  of
school."    Although    four    hours
notice was given, Prof. Smith  nnd
his ichool failed to get their copy to
the telegraph office, and tlio simple
test offered by the World demonstrated  that  the  great theoretical
school ot journalism was not capable

When I lived in London I traveled every
day noma distance on tho underground railway, writes Luke Sharp in tbo Detroit
Prise Press. I got on at T _u*nbam Green station, in the western soburbe, and got out at
tho Temple, right In the heart of tho me-
t:«pclis. This waa in the morning. . In the
evening, naturally, I reversed the journey!
Fhe morning journey wart tho up trip, and
on that one I had to climb a stairway to get
, tothe train, and when the journoy was fln-
■ islied I found myself down under ground.
. When tho down journey was ended it left
mo away up on a station perched on an embankment. It is wonderful tho curious experiences a person can havo in a place like
London.
Tlio journey under ground never quito
suited my taste for traveling.  Tho scenery
in the tun nol la not at all beautiful nor
j oven interesting. But what I most objected
. to was a certain sulphurlness in tho atmosphere whioh seemed  to irritate my
breathing apparatus.   I asked tho company to romedy this, but they claimed that
i' that was tho stylo of air demanded by the
. majority of their passengers, and they declined to ohango it merely to oblige one
cuptlous man, wbo would probably growl no
AN OLD S-AUT'S YARN*
Kdw Piiti-r Joliusim Was Uted a*, a Vluj
_        to .Slop ii I_..i.k on t-h-plJi'l-ril.
Old Peter Johnson, a familiar "landmark"
of South street, and who, in the memory of
the oldest deck hand in this city, has never
bceu known to stir away from his sent on
an old box at the corner of South street and
Cacntics slip, tells tbe New York Evening
Sua a most remarkable talc of the troubles
through which he had to past) to become un
American citizen, and to run away from his
birthplace in Sweden.
It scorns that Fetor, whose name is not
Peter ut ull, but some thing in which all the
letters in the alphabet are combined, was
born in a littlo hamlet In Sweden. Ever
since he first road a translation Ot "Robin-
son Crusoe," atthe ngo of ten,Fetor had a
violent passion for the sea. Ono day he
board of America. He asked how fur off
tliis great luud might bo, and his father replied thut it was on tho otber sido of the
grout Irish sea and across the Atlantic.
Tlio next day Peter made Up a littlo bundlu
of'necessaries and started off to find tins
glorious El Dorado. Ho reached Lets, n
Sinai I (lulling port on tho coast of Sweden.
Walking along tho wharves bo sav: a
bark of about eight hundred tons that was
advertised to start for Now York on thut
very day. Ho had never heard of New Yoi k,
but as lio clambered over the port rail of
the littlo ship he blindly hoped that It wa?
somewhere near his goal. On board he
found all deserted. By accident Peter
stumbled Into tlio hold of tho ship. He so-
erotodhirasolf among a number of barrels,
and as ho was vory tired he fell asleep.
About ten hours afterward he was awakened by a peculiar clanking noise. Tho
ship was rolling  horribly.   Her wooden
mutter what thoy did.   Thoy Baid that if I 3tdos wore boing straiuod to tho utmost ex-
wanted mountain air I should go to
Sw.__.Q_.land.  I pointed out to thom that It
, wns very convenient for a person living in
Switzerland to como to his offlce in the
Strand overy morning at nine o'clock, but
»thut mado no impression on them, and as I
■ft had uot time that year to build an elevated
roud to suit my own requirements I had to
put up with the underground, although I
munugod to give tho company a good deal
of trouble with my complaints.
Thin roundabout introduction is for the
if purpose of showing how, annoyed by the
suioke of the engines, I took to smoking my-
i/boII'. A physician whom I suspect of having
fix grudge at ino recommended me to smoko
~ while on tho underground journeys, and al-
' though up to that time I bad never
smoked a whiff in my life, I took to tho
apparently mild and harmless cigarette. I
thought I could get as littlo of tho effects
of tobacco out of a cigarette as out of any
form tho weed assumes, and I still adhere
to that opinion.
Without intending to brag in any way, I
may say that by perseverance and strict at*
tontion to business, I soon augmented my
ibilii y ns a cigarette consumer. I began in a
small way, smoking three or four cigarettes
*. a day, and by industry I got to be a regular
wholesale establishment, burning up from
.'forty to fifty cigarettes overy twenty-four
' hours. Naturally I was very proud of this
.uid I camo to bo vory much respeotod—by
killers in tobacco—and they pointed to mo
as mi example of what might be dono by
Jogged adhesion to tho work on hand.
' Not feeling quito up to the mark, I one
iay consulted my rogular physician. Ho
felt my pulse and shook his head gravely.
When iny doctor shakes his head it moans at
least fivo dollars out of my pooket, so I be-
jan to fool alarmed.
. "Do you smoko!" he asked.
'! ••Yes."   '
■ "What!"
■ "Cigarettes."
"How mnny a dayi" '
"About sixty-three."
"Well, they're killing you; you'll haveto
stop."
" Is tobacco so injurious as all that I"
I  " Tobacco 1 No. But cigarettes are. You
' mi uso all tho tobacco you want—but tako
•'it in tho form of good cigars."
Well, I switched off on tho cigar habit.
I applied to tho smoking of cigars the samo
'uubits of earnest application that hod been
io signally successful with tho oigarottos.
Soxt consultation 1 hnd on the subject of
health with tho M. D. (samo man)'he bold:
• "Smoke any!"
I  "Alittlo."     ;
, "What!"      '
"Good cigar.!."
" How many I"
"Oh, fivo or six a day."
'* "Well, you'll have to stop that.  It's kill-
,'ngyou."
. "Why, I thought you said that tobacco
|vaa —"
, "Oh, tobacco's all right, but not iu tho form
'of cigars. Take to a pipo. That's the only
-ntionnl way of using tobacco."
So I began "hitting tho pipe.1
.
tout, uud Peter's heart stood still.
*' Woll, tho ond of it was," said tho old
man l.ut evening to tho writer, " that I
went ou deck. I was a mighty sick colloose,
I can toll you. But 1 wasn't too sick to see
that cjmotbinghor'ble had happened. The
cap'u stood near tho wheel looking hopelessly toward shore, and didn't oven notice
me. Tiro sea was runnin' high. A heavy
gale hud caught us to leeward and wo had
sprung a leak. Our ship was pretty fast
and wo wore out of sight of land. Tho
leak was a big one and our ship was fillin'
fust. All tho men woro at work at tbo
pumps, but tho wator waa gamin' on 'em
and thoy wero losin' heart and hope.
Whon the cap saw mo he didn't fire off and
cat-tail inc. No; he just caught mo by the
shoulder here and he jest looked up to
Heaven thus way, and he jest said, 'Thank
God 1' sorter happy liko.
"Then ho hurried mo down Into the hold
and then he said somotbin' to 'ono of the
men as waa at tbo pumps. The man went
away, but ho soon como baok 'n told the cap
that all was right,
"Thon tho cap'n took mo down into tho
how of tho old hulk. That's wher' she'd
sprungaleak. Thor' wasahole 'bout the
size of your body on tho starboard side.
Tbo cap'n, he and the man then cotched mo
up, an' inato3, would you believo It! they
just stuck mo in that hole up to my
armpits, they did, blast me if they didn't I
It was mighty oncomfortablo to me, hut it
stopped tho water from flowin' in. Aftor a
whilo tho water was all pumped out, an'
then tho carpenter fixed the hole. For my
part of the work tho cap'n gave mo free
passnge, and hero I am."
And then Peter Johnson closed his teeth
on an old clay pipe, nor would he open tbem
again to say ono word In explanation of his
strange adventure.

Tho comer Btone  of the* new and
handsome edifice that was opened for
public worship yesterday waa laid on
July 12th, 1888, Rov. Robt. Jamieson
being master of ceremonies and using
tho beautiful  silver  trowel,   suitably
inscribed, that was presented  to him
on the occasion by Mr. R. F.   Anderson, chairman of  tho  building committee.    As. Mr. Jamioson   had been
Iho  organizer   of   tho    Presbyterian
church in this city and its  pastor  for
many years, and. had  strongly advocated tho building of tho new church,
and also voluntarily surrendered  his
houso und lot on the church properly
to mako way for the now building,   it
wns    considered   quito   appropriate
that    he   should    have   tho   honor
of  laying   tho   corner  stone  of tho
new St. Andrew's.    Fur the prosecution and subsequent successful  completion of tho building much credit   is
due to the building committee,   who
have   labored   faithfully   throughout,
and  also  to   the  pastor,   Rev. Mr.
Scuuler, whose experience  in church
building (his con_.regat.iou at Hamilton
having erected a line brick church) enabled him to give valuable counsel and
assistance.    The ladies of the congregation are  also   entitled   to  a large
share of  praise  for    their devoted
efforts towards thu interior  furnishing
of  the   church.    Tho    building  itself   i3    modern  gotlnc   iu   design
rectangular   in   plan,   and   is substantially erected in brick and stone.
It presents a in.-.ssivo and imposing appearance iu its strong outline of  buttresses,   gabU.3 and trimmings.   Tho
principal entrance is well marked by a
line tower and spire of   good   proportions, tho full height being  105   feet.
Another public entrance is by it porch
on tho opposite comer.   Besides theso
there   is  a   pastor's entrance  and a
choir entrance near  tho back  ond of
the church.   A fow easy steps from tho
public entrances lead to a largo   vestibule,   which   is   well   warmed   and
lighted,and provided with conveniences
for tho disposal of wraps,   ito.   From
this    vestibule   are   the    entrances
to the body of tho church (the  doora
opening outwards), and two handsome
stairways lead to tho gallery overhead,
The auditorium Sb lofty and well lighted  and   ventilated.    The  whIIb are
plastered iu stucco, tho roof being  of
open timbered construction,   finished
in native cedar.   In roar uf the pulpit
platform is the organ and  ehoir gallery, tho front of both galleries  being
neatly finished in open (inline panelling.   At the right is  tho choir entrance room and opposite the  pastor's
room.   Tho seating and pulpit are exceptionally  fine,   being   handsomely
constructed in native alder,   Tho  design of both is beautiful, and the workmanship would bo hard to excel.   The
seats aro cushioned throughout.  The
floor is graded slightly, ascending as it
recedes from the pulpit. The lighting of
tho church isby gas reflectors. The heating is by a hot air furnaco iu the basement, where there is ample room fur
fuel and goneal storage.   The  accoua-
tic properties ot tho building are well
nigh  perfect, delighting all who  have
spoken in it so far, and deserve more
than a passing notice, as this most de- !
sirable end is difficult   of attainment.
Thu architect, Mv. (J. W. Grant,   de- i
serves great praise for having bo sue- '
ceBSfully secured this  desirable  end.
The aisle?, platforms, and pulpit have
been beautifully carpeted by the ladies.
Altogether the now edifice,  both exterior aud interior, presents a handsome,   commodious,   and  most  substantial     appearance.      Tho    seating and pulpit, it should be mentioned,
woro  manufactured  by tho R, O. P.
Mills, from designs hy  tho  architect.
Messrs, Ackerman Bros, wore contractors for the whole work, which reflects
credit upon them, as woll as upon tho
architect, Mr,   (.rant.   The  grounds
have beon tastefully laid out and furnished    with    a    neat   fence,    and
all    that     remains   to    fully   complete tho building is the outside painting, which it was thought advisable to
postpone till the summer.   Tho pastor
and congregation of St. Andrew's may
well be  congratulated  on possessing
such n beautiful and commodious house
of worship, which is a credit  and  an
ornament to the city as well.

The hew Presbyterian brick church,
corner of Carnarvon and Blackwood
sts., was opened yesterday Id public
worship. At the morning service (at
11 o'clock) the beautiful and commodious building was comfortably filled by
an audience of between Bix and seven
hundred. Tho servico commenced
with tho usual Bhorfc prayer and
the singing by the choir nnd
congregation of tho 122nd Psalm—"I
juyed whon to tho houso of God," etc.,
—to the tune of St. Paul" Thu first
lesson was road from 2nd Clirou., 0 a,
beginning at tho 18 v., also Psalm 132,
from 13 v., Rev. Thos.Scouler, pastor
of tho church, officiated so far. Rev.
Donald Fraser, of Victoria, read the
second lesson in tho bouk of Haggai, 2
e., from the 3 to i> vs., inclusive; also
Acts, 1 c, 4 to 12, vs., and portions uf
Acts 2 c, beginning with tho 1 snd 22
vs., Hymn 10l--"Spirit Divine, attend our prayers/'— tune Milton, was
sung, followed by prayor by Rev. Mr.
Fraser. During tho collection,
which followed, the choir rendered very creditably, a portion uf
the 24th Psalm, to the grand old tune
of St.   George's Edinburgh.
Rev. Mr. Fraser announced as his
text Acts 1 c, 8 vs.,—"But ye shall
receivo power after that the Holy
Ghost is come upon you, and ye shall
be witnesses unto me,"—and said: Tho
Holy Spirit is the aouree of life and
power in nature and in grace. The
Spirit of God movod upon the faco of
the waters and infused lifo into ancient
chaos. The Spirit is the source of 'human reason and intelligence. The
Spirit of God is the author of regeneration ond of sanctification. Our attention in tho words of tho text is called
to-day to a special exercise of the
Holy Ghost, that is, the working of
the Holy Spirit in equipping God's
people, for active Christian service.
It has oeoured to mo that tho discussion of this aubject will be very appropriate hero thia morning. This placo
has been built at great expense and
and sacrifice of thought, and now it
has been set apart for the worship of
God. In our united prayers wo ask
God to come and dwell here. Nuw
brethren, our attention is directed to
the power which God lias promised
and which is absolutely nocesaary to
doing the L'.rd's work in tho world.
Our attention ia very early attracted,
in God's word, to tho power of God's
spirit equipping men for his service.
(Hero the preacher cited a number of
examples from both the Old nnd New
Testaments.) Wo find that tho Spirit
has been working in all ages. The
Spirit entered upon the I_*-rd Jesus
and upon His apostles. The apostles
were very weak men until thoy received power from un high. But, what
a chango took place on tho day of pen-
ticoBt, This was the result, not of
the eloquence of Peler, hut of the
power of the Holy Gboat. Wo have,
then, abundant testimony uf the fact
that tho men who have dono groat
things for God have been men that
have been moved by the Holy Ghost.
The Holy Spirit iita men for Christian
duty by giving them sympathy for the
lost. I think that thia lies at tho very
root of success in Christian work. Unless we enter upon our work fur souls
sympathizing!)' and earnestly, we
might, just as well not enter upon it
at all. One of the greatest secrets of
the power of Jesus Christ in movin.r
the heart of men was His tenderness
-and sympathy. The speaker continued, allowing that it was the duty of nil
Christiana tu bo filled with the Holy
Spirit and to be witnesses for Christ,
calling attention to the fact that thero
were so many Christians not active in
the L.ird's work, and concluded au eloquent and impressive discourse by saying: What could bo mure appropriate
in this opening service of this beautiful church than to bow before God in
this very hour and m_k Him to send
the power of tho Spirit upon every
ono of us.
After a fervent prayer by the Rev.
Mr. Fraser, Paraphrase 20—"How
Glorious Zion's Courts Appear"—was
sung to tho tune "Irish, This was
followed by the baptism of the infant
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Lyal,
and the flinging ef hymn 255—' See
Israel's gentle Shepherd stands," &c—
to the tune of "St. Peter," and the
congregation was dismissed with the
benediction.
At 2:30p.nb -ftov> Tlios. Haddon,
of St. Paul's Reformed Episcopal
Church, preached a short sermon,
specially adapted to the congregation,
who wero mostly children, thia boing
the Sabbath school hour. The Rev.
gentleman took for his text Luko 8c,
part of Gv.-~"A Bower went uut to
now''-.and held the interested attention
of his audience while ho described in
simple language and apt illustration
the meaning of the parable and applied
the lessuns it was fitted to teach both
scholar and teacher. The full choir
was present and led in the praise,
In tho evening Rev, Mr. Fraser
again conducted the services and took
na his text, Revelations lc. 17-19 vs.
inclusive—"And when I biiw Him, I
fell at His feet as dead. And He laid
Hia right hand upon ine, saying unto
me, Fear not; I am lhe first and
the last?1 ite—and preached ' an
ablo aud interesting sermon,
which uur space forbids us noticing.
During tho taking uf the collection tho
choir rendered "Jackson's Te Deum"
very acceptably, and the 100th Psalm
and hymns 252, 248, 304, throughout
the service, were well given by the
choir and congregation.
Mrs. Trew presided at the organ
throughout the various services, with
her well known musical taate nud skill.
It should be mentioned here, parenthetically, that, at the last congregational meeting, Misa Jamieson resigned
the position of organist, which ahe has
occupied tor the past nine years, and
Mrs. Trew, the present organist, has
been appointed her successor. To
Mr. Geo. Lyal, choir leader, is due
credit for the laudable efficiency manifested by the choir. On tho pulpit
platform had been placed some vory
handsome cameling nnd cala lilies, the
latter in full bloom, which added
beauty aud grace to the scone. The
collections during thu day fur the
building fund, exclusive of the regular
collections, amounted to $300.
At the Baptist church yesterday
Rev. Mr. Baldwin preached in the
morning, and tho Cow-Boy evangelist
in thu evoning, when Bcvcral immersions took place, There was no servico in the Methodist church in the
morning. In the evening Rev. Mr.
Hicks, the Boy Preacher, delivered a
good sermon. Owing to the space required fur the opening of St. Andrew's, we hare been unable to do
justice to other church services, but
shall do so on future occasions.
