NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A boy in a publio school, on* boing
asked to define the word responsibility, said: "Well, my trousers
have got t-yo buttons on; if one
should come oil', the other would be
responsible for the trousers."
A Long Island temperance lecturer pledges his convert, to buy
their beer by the case and drink it
only at home, and in four weeks has
ruined the buisness of fourteen
saloons. It is a new idea, and one
that hits  the   saloon-keeper  hard,
/I'lic system of cram' rules our
public schools and leaves no time,
not even half an hour a week, for
moral training, or intercourse by
which a teacher may call into play
Bomo emotion more noble than that
of selllsh emulation.—Montreal Wit-
The lower house of the legislature of Maine has adopted a bill authorising druggists to sell liquor in
quantities of not less than one quart,
on the prescription of a physician—
the' druggist himself ■ may be the
physician. The moaning of this sort
of backsliding in the New England
states is the increase of foreign population, whioh is crowding out the
old stock.
The minister called one afternoon
to see Mrs. Crown, and at a
moment when she was out of tho
room, being in sermonizing mood;
ho said to little Johnny: "This is
an unreasonable world, my young
friend." "Youbotit is," assented
little Johnny, in a way that left no
doubt as to his sincerity. "Teacher
licks me when I don't know enough,
und dad takes it out of me when I
know too much."—Ex.
"Mr, LuBhly," said his wife at the
breakfast table "you aro a brute.
Nobody but a brute would odd insult to injury the way you did last
night." Lushly made no inquiries,
but his wife wont on: "You came
homo in a state of beastly intoxication as usual, and I didn't say a
word to you except   'So  you  are
drunk again I What did I dot"
inquired Lushly, his curiosity getting tho better of him. "You hic-
coughod and said: 'Sheshnuts 1'
That's what you did." aud she wept
at the vory recollection.
Tho Gloucester fishermon have
petitioned the Massachusetts legislature to take measures to prevent
ocean-going steamers from crossing
the cod-fishing waters off the banks
of Newfoundland. Whereupon the
Philadelphia liecord remarks: —
"While the legislature of Massachusetts is a very powerful body, its
jurisdiction does not extend quite so
far into tho Atlantic ocean. Nor
havo tho cod fisheries off the banks
of Newfoundland yet become the
oxclusivo domain of tho New England fishermen; although, it must be
said, the speeches of Senator Frye
and other eminont statesmen of the
east might convey a   contrary  itn-
Mrs. Brown Potter, the actress,
having essayed the part of Oamille,
does not please the critics in it
Instead of playing the character as
it is usually played, that of a delicate woman succumbing to a lingering diseaso and finally dying, Mrs.
Potter, according to the New York
Times, adopts a new idea : "When
Mra. Potter made her first appearance, she was seemingly so woebegone that the fear was engendered
that she would die before the first
curtain fell. In the second act this
fear grew into a hopo, and in the
third it developed into a prayer.
But fears, hope, and prayers wero
equally unavailing. The strength of
Oamille improved steadily, until she
finally died vith great heartiness
and vigor," But then these critics
will say anything.—&
'Marriage is a failure," says an
exchange, on the following conditions : When either of the.parties
marry for money. Whon the lord
of creation pays more for cigars than
his batter half does for hosiery,
boots, and bonnets. When one of
the parties engages in a business
that is not approved by the other.
When both parties persist in arguing over a subject upon which they
never have and nover can think
alike. When neither husband nor
wife takes a vacation. When the
vacations are taken by one side of
tho house only. When a man
attempts to tell his wife what style
of bonnet sho must wear. When a
man's' Christmas presents to his
wifo consist of bootjacks, shirts and
gloves for himself. Whon the
watchword is: "Each for himself."
When dinner is not ready at dinner
time. When "he" snoies tho loudest
while "she" kindles the firo. When
"father" takes half of the pie and
leaves the othor half for the one
that made it and her eight children.
When the children sre given the
neck and back of the ohioken, When
children sre obliged to clamor for
their rights. When the money
that should go for . book goes for
what only one side of the houw
knows anything about. When there
is too muoh latchkey. When
politeness, fine mannors, and kindly
attention aro reserved for company
or visits abroad.
George Hague, manager of tho Merchants' bank, Montreal, denies the
rumor that he has been asked lo enter

A CAREFUL SWAIN.
Montreal, April 11.—-An interesting case is likely to como before the
courts. Some time ago a would-be
bridegroom consulted a lawyer to ascertain before marriage the actual value of his intended's fortune. He told
the lawyer he had doubts that the
lady was not rich. The lawyer got to
work and fonnd tho lady a fortune
amounted to $100,000, if not more.
This wee enough to satisfy the client,
and he left promising to pay liberally.
Some time later a cheque, for what
the lawyer considered a very smnll
amount, arrived. The lawyer accordingly senfr in his bill of fees, which the
man refuses to pay, hence the suit

Every oue is busy seeding, and the
acreage this spring will greatly exceed
that of last year; prosperity in and
around the settlement is a very prominent feature. Property is advancing in value nt a rapid rate in this vicinity as well as in othen. Somo good
offers havo been made of late, but few
accepted. The country around ia full
of people in search of tho few vacant
lots, aud at tho rate land has been
taken up through this district recently
it will be but a short timo till there
will not be a bit of unoccupied land in
existence. Township 13, the most
backward in the settlement, is now
being settled up at a rapid rate.
Considerable Improvements in the
way of building will be done here this
season, amongst which will be a fine
residence for Mr. John Bonson, to be
built by Messrs, Disney Bros., of this
place. I am also informed that there
will be nu Episcopal churoh erected
here during the summer. The government is now building the bridge on the
now landing road. The road will bo
opeu for traffio by tho end of the pre*
sent week.
A great quantity of fruit trees of all
descriptions are being planted here
this season. Mr, John Benson has
set in an orchard of 1,000 prune
trees. Mt. Lehman will in the near
future be a great fruit raising district.

Sir James Hannen passed a note to.
him in whieh he said:   "1 congratulate you.   It wis a great speech and
worthy of this great occasion."   In concluding his address Russell said the
court was trying the  history of the
Irish revolution, ahd all he ashed for it
was a fair and generous consideration.
"If prosperity waa returning to Ireland," he ssid, "I would thank God,
hut affairs are unhealthy when the
people consider that the imprisonment
of a member of the houso of commons
made of thnt member a hero and martyr."   He did not speak,   he   said,
merely as an advocate of the. members
of the house of eommons, but he spoke
for tho land of his birth, and, as he
believed, in the best interests of England.   The inquiry, whioh was intended to be a curse, had been a blessing, and that whioh was designed to
ruin one man had been his vindication.   The commission adjourned until the 30th inst.

STEAMSHir    COLLISION.
London, April 12.--Steamer City of
Chester, from Sew York, which nr-
rived.at Queenstown last night, reports
having paised'on April 8, ih mid ocean,
the Danish Bteamer Denmark, from
Copenhagen to Now York. The vessel had been abandoned and was in a
sinking condition. Sho had apparently been in a collision, her bow stood
out of water, while the stern was
sunken almost bolow the level of the
water. She carried six hundred and
fifty passengers, presumably all immi-
ruta. Inoludingthe vessel's Captain,
N. Judson, tho crew number forty
men. Mr. Eyde said: "The Denmark
was commanded by Captain Enudsen
an old sesmen well known for his
courage and presenee of mind. He is
uot a man to abandon the ship to the
mercies of waves when there was one
chance in even a thousand of getting
her into port She may have been
disabled but we are very nearly eer
tain that sho had not beon abandoned.
Even if the Denmark has been abandoned, ahe had sufficient means to accommodate all passengers on board, if
not all tho orew. There were a great
number of life boats, enough for a
great passenger list and several new
rafts of the latest patterns and improvements uhich oould have accommodated the crew and officers and some of
the passengers if there was not room
enough in the life boats for them."
IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.

Senate will appoint a committee of
nine members to examine the charges
against General Boulanger to decide
whether they aro as such to justify his
prosecution. If this committee submits an indictment, which is of
course expected to be the result of ita
deliberation, the accused is to be allowed twenty days within which to appear and defend Himself. Should
General Boulanger be convicted by default upon not returning to Paris in
timo to stand his trial, the sentence
which tho Senate may pus upon him
will stsnd until he does appear when

Tho Vancouver /Jews  is giving
some of   its  cotemporaries a great
deal of trouble about the Canadian
Western  Rail\vay charter and land
subsidy.    Tho morning sheot of tho
'•suit    water     tonninus,"   elarinri
through n strong sectional and 0. P.
R. haze, haa gpolcon nnd declared, iu
effect, that not one of those men (gov-
ornment or opposition) who voted for
the Canadian Western Railway land
subsidy in tlio local house shall be
allowed  to hold  u t-nitt in the house
again, but, excemted alike by their
toteuipornries nnd by posterity, will
descend to the oblivion of dishonored graves.   As only three out of tho
twenty-seven member.-; of the house
voted in accordance with the News'
notions  on the subject, that paper
may be said to have undertaken tho
ambitious contract of establishing a
third party in the provinco, whose
platform is, apparently, opposition
to the Oanadian Western, but what
its positive policy would be is not
very difficult to imagine.   A great
deal has been said by the News on
this subject at one time and another,
but it is not necessary to go into the
details of thnt paper's opposition to
tho land subsidy, as tho journal in
question has placed itself outside of
particulars altogether by declaring
in January last, when it admittedly
knew very little about tlio particulars of tlie scheme or ils promoters,
"that the legislature will fail in its
duty if it does not refuse the application for a land grant to the proposed railway," ifcc.   Tho very vehemence and ultra views and expressions of the News on this question
since it lirst cumo up have a strong
tendency to detract very much from
the weight nf its opposition,   The
Mews is evidently opposed to tho
Canadian Western Railway scheme
from the word "go," and its wholo-
sale anathemas and  bull of excommunication   against tho entire government and legislature of the province, who  havo darnel to cross its
masters' path, are too ridiculous to
be taken seriously.    Thero may bo
some ■HlFeronee of opinion as to the
details of tho charter, subsidy, -to.,
but those could surely ho discussed
reasonably.    As to the News' "third
party," it will probably bo eleoted to
stay at home, when the time comes,
by Btich memoranda as lie chooses to
make for his own guidance, - The pupil's
work is ho report-id us "perfect, "imperfect," or a f'failuro" in tho various
studios pursued, nml aocuunt cun ho
taken of genuine fidolty nnd improvement as well as moro glibness in reciting
particular lessons. When a year's work
is concluded tho question of promotion
becomes ono of actual litness for the
higher grade of studies ascertained by
the real progress of the pupil ami not by
a capacity for cramming for an examination.
We would respectfully suggest
that the educational authorities of
this province should carefully consider, or re-consider, tho wholo subject, and see if some workable substitute can not bo found for "daily
marking" which shall furnish real
ground for congratulation and be in
tho interest of education ns well,

JE2
A portion of tho provincial press,
with a zeal that, under tho circumstances, to say tho least, appears
ill-judged, continues to congratulate
the government and felicitate the
teachers and the country generally
on the successful clinching of tho
"daily marking" syBtem upon the
public schools of the province. It is
not our purposo to question the sincerity and good intentions—evon ii
wc should discern a tincture of obstinacy in their exercise—of the administration in adopting and maintaining, in all its vigor, the "daily marking" system as one-of the regulations
affecting publio schools, but we must
say that we fail to see any ground
fur congratulation in the matter, except, it may be, that tho government aro to be congratulated on
carrying their point against the opposition that tho "daily marking"
clause aroused. Wo do not believe,
either, that, as is being intimated by
some of the papers, a majority of
the teachers are now in favor of
"daily marking" (they would be
stultifying themselves, if so), although we can easily believe, as o
zoo-lou** Victoria cotemporary con
iidenlJy predicts, "that few, indeed,
of tlie whole body of teachers in the
provinco will be found opposing the
system." As thn samo journal says,
..-■ "A salutary lesson has been taught,
and beri-nfter well meaning teachers
will be more tlian ever on their
guard against being misled by wicked
and desltjrtinrj persons, whether in or
out of thoir noble profession." Just
so, the teachers df the provinco will
not care to take the risk of being
designated na "wickedand designing
porsons," and, perhaps, bounced for
their paitie, andI will keep quiet in
future, whatever they may think.
Whilo prepared to admit that thero
ore many tilings calling for praise in
the government's educational administration, we eannot agree with some
of our cotemporaries in their oon-
gritulntory expressions about "daily
mirking." Our American neighbors

Speaking of tho servico which the
late John Bright rendered the Nortii
at tho time of the American civil
war, tlie Now York /'assays ■ "Wo
cannot know positively what might
have taken placo if Oobden, Bright,
and Mill had not lived and takon
part at that crisis. We know now,
ns wo did not know then, that tho
Queen was on our side also, and that
tho Queen had and exercised moro
political power a quarter of a century
ago than sho has now. What wo
do know is that the inlluenco of tho
governing classes was almost wholly
adverse to us, and that this influence
was countervailed in largo part by
the non-voting democracy, whoso
leader and apostle was John Bright.
Must it be acknowledged that wo
never rightly appreciated the services of these three great friends in
our hour of need. It happened that
Oobden and Bright were tho especial
champions of free trade, and that we
were wedded to an opposing doctrine. It cannot be denied that our
protectionism drew scales over our
eyes and obscured tho transcendent
merits and services of theso our
friends, We never saw ail that
thoy did for us. Wo never appreciated the sufferings of the working-
men in English factories who sidod
with Oobden and Bright when their
wives and children wore famishing
for want of tho cotton that our
blockade kept from thein, We saw
plainly enough the ill-will of Liverpool. Wo did not see the self-sacrificing steadfastness of Manchester.
The workingmen's convencion that
resolved, amid scenes of penury and
almost of despair, that the cause of
the Nortii was the canso of human
rights, nnd that it must be sustained
though the heavens-should fall, was,
if not the work of John Bright, tho
work that lie most powerfully contributed to and most dearly loved.
Therefore ought America to wear
mourning for him, and therefore will
America hold] him in warmer affection and higher esteem as the years
roll on."

LINDERHOF CASTLE.
Favorite  Residence of tbo Late
Crazy King of Bavaria.
Tliu Fairy I'alnce Recently Iteaeed by W.
K. VunUerbilt-A Faint Description ,
of Sonjo of tho Art Going
Contained Ih It,
Tho Llnderhof, whioh was tho favorite
residence of the lato King Louis of Bar:,
and which Mr, W. K, Vanderbllt
leased, will probably be tho Mecca or all
rich Americans traveling in Europe this
summor, says tho New York World, The
castlo is built in rococo stylo, is only two
stories high, and bears a certain resemblance to Trianon. Throo granite stops
lead iuto the vestibule, whioh rests on pillars of Untersberg marble. In the center
is an equestrian statue of Louis XIV. in
brenzo ouauiarblo socle, with gilt ornaments and inscriptions. On the celling Is a
radiant sun and tho inscription: "Ncc
PluribuB Iuipar." Two more steps lead to
tho immense staircaso, in front of which is
a bluo Sevres vase with a beautiful picture,
"Esther"—aprosontor Napoleon III. To
tho right and loft of tho stair-oaso aro tho
rooms for tho body-servants, the head cook,
kitchen, collars, ote. A little higher up aro the
dressing and tho bath rooms of tho King',
tho wails of the latter being decorated by
wonderful pictures, representing tho bathing Venus and her nymphs, Ttie ten rooms
of the second story aro grouped arouud the
stair-case. Ttie first room we enter is the
Western Gobolin Room, the walls of which
aro coverod with Gobelins representing
■'Amor'B Offering," "Dolce far Nionto,"
"A Bluo Grapo" and "A Bag-;
Piper," all copied from Wattcau
by Byron Fochmann. Between tho
pictures oro war trophies aud emblems of.
agriculture. The door frames are artistically carved and glided; tho coiling picture
represents ',■ Tlio Evening," by Prof. Haus-
diiki. Tho canopies and chairs aro tip*
holstored with genuine Gobelins, A pianino,
wliich is at tho same timo an ceolodlcon, a
marble fire-place with an immense mirror,
two Carrara marble rococo vases and a
painted torra-eotta peacock completo the
furnishing of this room.
Next to it is the Yellow Cabinet, all the
tapestry and upholstery being in • yellow
Bilk with rich silver embroideries; the
sconces are made of porcelain; pastel
painting of illustrious mon und women of
tho tunes of Louis XIV. and Louis XV.
decorate tho walls.
From hero wo pass i..to tho King's study,
tbo walls of which aro decorated
with large mirrors and emblems
of royalty, religion, science and industry. Ontho two mnrblo mantel-pieces
uro statues of Louis XIV. and Louis XV.
The paintings on tbe ceiling represent
"Versailles," "Supper.of Louis XV.,".
"Louis XV. receiving the Turkish Embassy "and "Tho Marriage Ceremony of
tho Dauphin in tho Chapol of Versailles;"
a crystal luster hangs down from the center. Over tbo writing tabio, with its innumerable bronze and gold utonsils, is a
large green velvet canopy, tho back wall of
which shows tho royal Bavarian coat*of-
arms; the curtains of tho canopy aro lined
with ermine. All tho upholstery of this
room is grcon velvet with gold embroideries.
Through tho Lilac Cabinet (furnishing
and wall decorations similar to those of tho
Yellow Cabinot, only horo in Waa color with
gilt carvings) wo go iuto tho bedi-oom, tlio
largest of all (43x38 foot).' The pictures on
tho celling aro by Bpioss nnd Lesker and
represent " Louis XV.'s Ascension to Heaven" and " Apollo on tho Sun Chariot."
(During tho alterations of thla room the
King slept in tho Mirror Room.)
From tho bed-room through tho Pinl*.
Room (same as tho Yellow and Lilac Rooms,
only pink with a beautiful coiling picture,
"Amorottos," aftor Boucher) wo pass into
the dining-room, tho Avails of which are decorated with emblems of hunting, fishing,
agriculturo and horticulture.- The painliuga
on the coiling represent "Flora," "Amor
und Psycho," "Bacchus and Venus" nnd
*' Venus and Amor;" two panels show "Tbo
Dethronimtion of tho Queen Athalin-' and
"Esther Before Ahasuorus." Tho upholstery Is red plush. +
Next to tbls is tho Bluo Room (samo as
tho yellow, only the leading color is bluo),
from which wo go into the Eastern Gobolin
Room, which is somewhat similar to the
western room; but tho paintings are differ*
ent. Wo find hero " Tho Triumphant March
of Bacchus," "Tho Abduction of Europaby
Jupttor," "Pygmalion and Venus" and
•'Tho Abduction of Kophalos by Aurora."
On tlio mantel-pieces aro marble groups,
"Apallo," "Vonus," "Diana" and "Tho
Throo Graces." Tho painting on tho coiling is a copy of Boucher's "Morning" by
Prof. Uauschild.
Tlio last room wo go to is tho Mirror
Room, so callod becauso all tho walls are
covorod with mirrors in richly carved and
gilt frames. Tho luster is made of ivory,
tho upbolstory of tbo rosowood furnituro is
light bluo Bilk with silver ombroldo: ies.
Two panels show " A Stug Huut" and " A
Reception undor Louis XV." In a littlo
ulcho is thn Bavarian coat*of-aru\s, ln
inosiuc; noar to tht' window otnuds a writing*
tabic, on the opposite oornor a book-easo
nnd two porcelain tables with gold ornaments. Tho mantel-pieces of tho two fireplaces are of lapis-lazuli, decorated with
gilt bronze. Tho painting pn tho celling
represents a bathing Venus,
The garden surrounding this fairy castlo
with its innumerable statues, vases, fountains, cascades and water-works is a marvel
of horticultural art and inventive genius,
Noar tho pavilion aud above tho cascades is
tho world-renowned artificial stalnetlto
grotto with n waterfall and a small lako
which enn bo illuminated in all colors from
tho bottom of tho water. Tho doors to this

iVam J-oeiely Women's Fjuios.
Of the many curious stores whicli matte
Fourteenth street, Now York, and lis environs, a resort for fashlonablo city women
or their curiosity-nuking country cousins,
ono deserves moro than passing notice,
writes a correspondent from that city to tho
Philadelphia^-Press. It is on tho second iloor
and occupies at least two largo rooms.
Thoso aro richly carpeted andlurnishcd.
In one curtained alcove a pretty young
woman, calling herself a manicure, is par
tiontly trying to improve tho fat red pawn
of somo retired liquor-dealer's wife. In a
second alcovo a chiropodist is undoing
tho painful consequences of tight boots mid
high liools. In a sido room somo customer
is having her hair bleached, oiled, dressed
or dyed by a deft and experienced attendant. Ovor tidoor, howovor, is a singular
notico. It reads: "^h-absolutely and p:r-
mauoutly removed by the elootric-il deflator. Birthmarks and blemishes painlessly
removed bv cloctriclty."
Tho proprietor, a well-fed ahd portly personage, condescended to talk upon this
phaso of his business. " Those arc two now
ideas which have boen latoly discovered,
and which aro in uso inall the groat dv-pi*
tals of Europe aud a few cities in iho United
Statos. I don't know who discovered i U - in.
I learned them abroad, and introduced P-.om
here. Removing hair by tho now protcas
is vory simple. I tako this hoodie," r.nd
here ho produced a qucorllttlo tool Unit resembled a cobbler's awl, with a lon;; n'viirc-w

can't stand more tban ten hairs at an operation ; othors uro braver than men and will
sit there and suffor uncomplainingly as long
as you'll let thom. Women vary much in
tbo number and quality of hairs that aro
unsightly. Most havo a few bristles oa tho
chin or check; a good number havo mustaches or whiskers, whilo a fow have regular boards.
" Removing birthmarks nnd blemishes is
a moro beautiful operation. You uso two
needles; ono connected with llio electropositive dud the othor with the clectro-ncg-

dlers of olectricity uso, hut an ordinary ono

heating, burning nor loss of blood, so that
thoro is loss trouble than in tho slightest
prick of a cambric noodle. Aftor a few operations tho birthmark shrivels up aud falls
off, Dr. Henry Lassiug explains tho operation as consisting in the current decomposing tho cells which mako up blemish aud

A   Modest   ntt-burgh   Maiden's   Noisy
Gnuulfether's Clock.
A short timo ago, in tho courso of an ex*
ploring oxpoditlon In tho lumber garret of
an old oountry houao noar Pittsburgh, says
tho Topical Talker of tho _0_spateh,n young
lady came upon a clock of great antiquity.
Appearances said that this clock was probably ono hundred yeara old, Of courso its
worka woro dusty and time-worn, and a
vory thorough overhauling was needful before tho clock could ho expected to go.
But tho fair discoverer, boing determined
lohouor her ancestors and have something
"real old "about her room, took tho clock
to a ropairor of clocks in this city. Sho loft
it in his hands for ton days, and was tbon
notified that he had aent it to tho Fort
Wayne depot tn Allegheny.
Ono afternoon during the hours of the
homeward exodus of passengers tbo young
lady aaked lor her dock at tho packago-
voom in tho station. A largo brown paper bundle was handod to her and sho set
off to tako a seat In tho accommodation
train outside. JuBt as sho loft tho package-
room, howovor, tho clock in hor arms began
to strike. Bhe had not any Idea of the
clock's powers ln the striking direction.
With the reaonanco and sharp alarm of a
ilro-onglno gong the dock slowly told tbo
hour. It was not tho light hour, cither.
Tho young lady waa startled at the first
blow, but as it wont on sho became panic
stricken. Evory woman tn tho crowded
waiting-room stared Id astonishment nt the
girl with the striking attachment. Bomo of
them fearing infernal mtieulnes Incontinently fled, and thoso wbo stayed cast indignant looks at tho unfortunato and Involuntary disturber of tho peace.
As for her, she ran flrst tb this door and
then to tbat unresolved what to do, The
clock kopt on clanging cut an Imaginary
hour. At last, as tt struck twolve and
stopped with a whirr ol saUsftiotton, tbe
girl ran out of the room to the train;

INGERSOLL'S   ADVICE.
The Gnat Agnostic Doer Hot Believe In
Gloom ln the Sick-Room.
'■Thero ts altogether too much gloom
about most slok chambers," said Colonel
Roberto. IngorsoUtoaNewYorkC-miwer-
cinl Advertiser man. "Peoplo tip-toe in and
about and wear long faces and act generally in a way that would make oven a woll
man sick, and is bound to moke a sick man
worse. I believo many a man lias heen
hurried across tho dark river hy this horrible, soul-depressing treatment, who might
havo becomo well and strong and useful tf
he had moro sunBhino and fresh air Iu his
room, or tho odor of flowers to offset tho
smell of tho drugs, and smiling, hopeful
countenances about Instead of woo-begono
visages, whoso ovory glance betoken tho
loss of hopo and the belief in tho speedy dissolution of tho paln-rackod patient.
I bad a friend once namod Haloy, a
royal good fellow, of whom 1 thought a great
deal On one occasion 1 received word that
my old friend was dying and wanted to seo
me, and so I wont over to his house. I mot
his wifo, and she hod a face as long as tho
moral law, and ten times more uncomfortable. Woll, I wont to soo Haloy, and thero
ho lay counting tho moments In a bitter fear
that oach would bo his last. I don't know
what particular disease ho was troubled
with, but eithor that or the modicino had
turned him into a vivid saffron color.
Haloy,' I said, Til bo hanged tf I want to
dlo with sueh a complexion Jas that You
would bo tn a pretty plight to go mooning
about tho other world looking-liko a China-
man.' I went on for a fow minutes, when
the poor fellow began to enter Into tho
spirit of tho subject himself, and I showed
htm his -fbco tn a looking-glass, and that
brought n smllo. Then X turned to his
weeping wifo and told hor to cheer up; that
Holey was not going to dlo; that he was
good for twenty yoars to como.
" -Tho troublo with your husband is that
hois soared to death,' X sold -You all
como In looking so downcast and sorrowful
that you glvo him the Impression he is done
for, and tako away all bis oourago to light
againBt bis sickness,'
"Woll, tho result of all tbls wns that
Haloy commenced to mend, and timo nnd
again sinco tbon ho satd that my visit saved
bis life.
"On another occasion there was a Major
In tho army, whom I knew very woll. Ho
was taken ill, and belioved bo was going to
die. I believed bo wu simply homesick, or
something of that sort, Well, I wrote his
obituary, and wont to seo blm ln his tent.
" -Major,' Z said, 'you aro so sure of dying
that I havo written your obituary, and want
to read it to you.' Ho protested, but I wont
on with the reading, and detailed every
pleasant incident of bis lifo, Before I finished a smile flitted across bis faoe. Aftor
tho obituary I road him a story of somo
thing that was supposed to havo taken
plaeo a yoar after his funeral. It was a
description of his widow's- second mar*
dago, Thoro woro a good many more
people at tbo wedding than thore wero at
tho funeral. Well, this treatment had tho
effect to ohango tho currout of tho Major's
thoughts.. It broke up his hallucinations,
and ho recovorod, and did good service during tho war, and Uved a happy Ufa tor yean
after."      r— •—

Sew Salmon Grounds.
The people of Surrey are not going
to be left behind in the race for
wealth, if their offurts will bring about
the desired end. They havo made up
their minds that the Nicomnckl river
will make splendid salmon grounds,
and last week a largely signed potition
was Bent in to Mr, Thos. Muwat, inspector of fisheries, asking hiin to deposit a number nf salmon fry in that
stream. Mr. Mowat considered tho
petition favorably, and yesterday 50,-
000 young sockeyo salmon wero turned
loose in the Nicomeckl. Tho fry wore
transported in large tin cans, by atage,
across tho country, and stood the trip
very fairly. If the anticipations of
tho Surroyites aro realized a couplo of
cntinorics will be packing tish on tho
Nicomeckl in a fow years. Tjik Col-
i;mman trusts that the scheme may bn
fully realized.

The Oolncltan.
Tho sweovics are beginning to show
themselves in large schools, and consequently tho Indians and fishermen
aro reaping a good harvest. Visnon's
boat brought in 1200 pounds, yesterday, and only worked u part of tho
day. The demand for oolachnns in
rather peculiar. Victoria eannot get
a suilicient quantity and would consume a ton per day if procurable. No
fish on the viotoria market is so much
relished and so anxiously looked for ae
tho delicious oolachan. The samo
may be said for Weitminster nnd
Nanaimo. But with Vanoouver tho
case ia greatly dilliorent. Fifty pounds
of oolachans will glut the market
at any timo, and the' peoplo will not
buy them bo long as tommy cod smolta,
horring and other tish of greatly, inferior quality and flavor, nre to bo had.
Of course n few of the old timers aro
particularly fond of the aweovy, but
the new comers have not jet boon educated up to tho proper opicurenh standard.

A whole scow load of the best quality

Mr. P. McGhran exhibited yesterday a fine specimen of native gold.
Tho nugget was worth at least 620,

The value of the Canadian fisheries
InBfc year was §18,500,000, a decrease
of $968,000. The valuo of B. C. fisheries ia 81,002,000, a decrease of $76,-
900. Inspector Mowat says this was
principally owing to the fuilure of the
fishery on the Fraaer lust year, although
tho average pack por ennnery is
reported to bo nearly the same as in
1887, the total capital invested show-
ng an increase of $163,000.

Yale Ume.
A surveyor hasgone up to Yale- to
survey limestone lauds in that vicinity.
Thu Columbian'!1 report of the success of Mr. Itnauro's venture in that
district has stimulated others to stake
out claims of this valuable stone. Yale
lime will shortly head the list over all
other brands on the coaat. Further
tests of tho lime prove that it is luperior by long odds to nny burnod on
the Pacific slope.

FOUL MURDER!
Wm, tscorKcsun Is Murdered by tbe Indians en thc8qiianilsl|Mlvcr.—Dls>
appointed Love the inline.
An Indian arrived at Ladners from
Howo Sound 'i few days ago bringing
the nows of tho niurder of William
Gcorgeson, a half-breed, ontho Squa*
mish river. Full particulars of how
and when'the niurder ocourud wero
not givon by the Indian who brought
the news, and as ho has since left for
Cowichan no further nows is obtainable from that source. It appears
that Georgeson was in the omploy of
tho Moodyvllle Saw Milla and waa
aout up to Howo Souud to do somo
work. He should hnvo been homo nt
least two weeks ngo, and waa expected
back about that timo by his wife. From
the date of his leaving home, which is
now over a month ngo, nothing hus
been heard of him, although he promised to send word to hii wifo tho next
week. All that could be learned from
the messenger, waa that Georgeson
had a row with some Indians and wus
killed.
The foet of a man having a row with
some Indiana doea not mean that murder iB likely to follow, but In this case
thero are circumstances which mnke it
quito probable that tho troublo was
provoked with tho intention of murder
on the part of tho Indians, It seems
thnt Georgeson married a very pretty
half-breed woman, for whose hand a
Squamish river Indian was also a
suitor. Tho Indian waa coldly rejected and Georgeson accepted, and the
marriage followed soon after. The Indian showed much bad feeling about
tho timo the couplo wore married, but
shortly afterwards returned to hia
humo on the Squamish. It is assorted,
howover, that ho made open threats
among his friends against Georgeson's
life, and awure to bo revenged 011 him
for stealing the brido of his heart. Indiana nro known to harbor a grudge
for a long timo, uud to finally nvenge
their supposed wrongs if an opportunity occurs. It is therefore quite probable that Georgeson met his enemy,
who, backed by friends, renewed the
quarrel and murdered the unfortunate
man.
The truo facts of tho murder will not
be brought to light until an official investigation has taken place, and perhaps ovon this will uot result in bringing tho guilty parties to justice. A
search will shortly be made for George-
son's body, the fate of which the Indian messenger gave no nccount.
Lord Stanley's Visit.
A meeting of the directors of the
British Columbia Agricultural Socioty
will ho held in the council chambers
to-morrow afternoon tu discuss matters
of importance in connection with the
coming exhibition, and to mako somo
nocesaary preliminary nrriingomenta.
Mr. W. II. Ladner, M. P. P.,
president of tho society, telegraphed
His Excellency, Governor-General
Stanley, to-dny, asking tho date of his
proposed visit to British Columbia,
and nlso requesting thut he would be
planned to formally open tho exhibition. A reply to this despatch will
probably bo received in time to belaid
before tho mooting to-morrow. Should
Lord Stanley consent to bo preaont at
tho opening, tho exhibition will be the
grandest success in the history of tho
province. No better opportunity
could bo afforded his lordship of mooting a representative gathering of her
majesty's British Columbia subjects,
nud uo better time could be chosen by
tho people to welcome tho vice-regal
party to the Pacific Bhores.

THE LADIES DELIGHTED.
Tho pleasant effect and the perfect
safety with which ladies may uso the
liquid fruit laxative, Syrup of Figs, under all conditions make it their favorite
remedy. It is pleasing to tho eye and to
the taste, gentle, yot effectual in acting
on the kidneys, liver and bowels.
Alderman Frunkland, the well
known oattle dealer, estimates that
the shipments from Toronto for the
English market during the coming sea-
son will reach 0,000 head.
Charlea Phillips has left Belleville,
Ont, for British Columbia, whero he
will engage in missionary work among
the Indians.

THERE'S a bower of rosea by Bende-
meer's stream,
And the nightingale sings round it all
the day long;
Twas sweet in the time of my childhood's;
young dream
To sit mid tho roses aud hear tho birds'
song.
That bower and its roses I never forget;
And oft, while alone, in the bloom of
the year,
I think, "la tho nightingale singing there
yet?"
Are the roses still bright by tho calm
- Bendcmeor.
No; the flowers aoon withered that hung
o'er the wave;
But some bloasoms wore gathered while
freshly thoy shone,
And a dew was cxalod from tholr petals
which gavo
All tho fragrance of  summer when
slimmer was gone.
