A prominent citizen in ICimberly,
South Africa, writes the S*.. James
Gazeti.'c:' "Tho Transvaal gold initios
am a tremendous success. In tho
last threo months the market has
been porfectly wild. Shares bought
at j£1 each a yoar ago nre noy*
changin_j hands rapidly at £50, A
friend of mine made £12,000 last
weok, A .saleswoman in one of the
drapery stores' hero invested £200
iu gold shares—her savings during
ten years—and sho is to-day worth
.£10,000, thoy being sold out."
Mr. Spurgeon, the well-known
London preacher, has a beautiful
residence at Heaulah, Upper Norwood, with extensive grounds and*
handsome conservatories. A silver
casket from the Queen h one of the
most precious household gods. His
correspondence averages 500 letters
a day, and ho employs three secretaries to answer the communications
which como to him from ull parts of
tlie world. The enormous revenues
of the metropolian tabernacle are
entirely devoted to the various
philanthropic movements in which
the reverend gentleman is interested,
us the ample income derived from
his books and sermons is more than
sufficient for his utmost needs.
Sir James Scarlett, when practising at the bar, one day had to
examine a witness whose evidence
promised to be damaging unless he
could be previously confused; The
only vulnerable point of the man
was said to be self-esteem. The
witness, a portly, over-dressed
person, went into tho box, nud
Scarlett took him in hand. "Mr.
John Tompkins, I believe?" "Yes."
"You area stock broker 1" "I ham."
Scarlett regarded him attentively
for a few momenta and. then snid,
"And a vory fine and well-dressed
ham you are sir." The shout of
laughter which followed completely
disconcerted Mr. Tompkins and the
lawyer's point was gained.—

In a school district in London
thero wore many parents who reported no children in their families.
In order to find just how many
children wero thus being kept from
school, the school -authorities got two
monkeys, dressed them gayly, put
them in a waggon in which was a
brass band, and started through the
distriot. At once orowsds of children
appeared and followed tho waggon,
which drnvo to a neighboring park,
when the school ofheers went among
lhe children distributing candies
and getting thoir names and addresses. They thus found that over
sixty parents kept their children
from school; and as a result of the
monkeys, the brass band and the
oundy about 200 little boys aud
girls havo boon set at study.

Wednesday Evening, Fab. It. ISM.
We hope to see the exhibition to
be held at this city next full thoroughly representative in a provincial
sense, to a degree which hns never
been attained, or evon aimed at, before. We havo got a vast province
—large enough for an European empire—and with resources almost illimitable in variety and extent. It
is desirable that, as far as possible,
all these shall be represented. To
insure this will require much de*
votedness and hurd work pn the
part of those nt the head of ntl'airs,
and the hearty co-operation of the
public generally will be necessary if
the exhibition is to attain the highest success as an exposition of the
products, manufactures, arts, and
even curios of the province. It is
net too early to begin to have the
exhibition in view now. Intending
exhibitors, of agricultural products
especially, can prepare in the spring
as at no other time for making a
good show in the fall. All classes
of exhibitors will do much better by
taking thought beforehand and de-
liberately planning to excel in their
respective departments. One thing
ia certain, that so far as the people
of Westminster are concerned, tho
exhibition will be devised nnd car*
ried out on a liberal scale, with a
view to making it, if possible, a
grand success. If the people of the
province generally co-operate as they
should, thero can be no doubt of the
result.
Matters which claim the assistance of the Dominion government,
and which will call for appropriations at this session of parliament,
are the Surrey-Delta dyke and a
canal from Mud Bay to tho Fraser
River. Both of these schemes have
been desoribed at length in this paper, and both are of great importance to the district immediately nf-
fected, in the first place, and also to
this city. By means of the proposed dyke about thirty thousand
acres of the richest bottom lands,
will be reclaimed, not to mon-
tion a number of roads in the
vicinity that oro partly covered
with water at some seasons of the
year, and which the dyke would effectually protect. As announced
previously, the owners of the land
und the farmers of the vicinity hd**re
agreed to assess themselves $2 per
acre for dyking purposes, and,
through the district member, Mr.
Chisholm, they have asked that tho
Dominion authorities should take
the mutter in hand und have the
work prosecuted. The canal, which
would shorten the distance by water
between the rich farming settlements of southern Delta und Surrey
and this city by about forty miles,
and therefore prove a great convenience to the districts affected, should
be undertaken simultaneously with
the dyke,as,for a distance of two and
a half miles, the two would run parallel with the canal immediately inside the dyke. Besides the ordinary
improvements to trade and navigation whioh the proposed canal would
bring about, there are extensive timber limits in the neighborhood, which
in no other way could be so conveniently reached and brought to
market as by the canal in question.
Both the dyke and canal schemes
deserve, and, we trust, they will receive, the careful and reasonable
assistance of tho Dominion government
There are two matters   that   we
should like to see the city   council
deal with as soon as possible.   These
an  street  naming and numbering
and the question of the seleotion of a
water works system for the city, To
these might be added a  third,  and
that is the proposition to make some
concessions in  favor of a flouring
mill at this city.   We  believe   the
council have all these questions un
der advisement, by committees—the
two latter at any rate.     With  respect to street naming and numbering, we have already expressed ourselves as to the importance of having
this modern  improvement  to our
town oarried out without delay, Wo
have also printed several  communications on the subject  supporting
thoae views.   We hope to  see  the
oouncil make this one of their improvements to be effected during the
present oivic year.   Tho expense to
the oity need only be  trifling,  and
we  oan  bespeak  the hearty and
cheerful co-operation ot the citizens
generally.   In the matter of a water
works system, the proposals of  the
Coquitlam Water Works Company
have been before the council  now
neirly a month, and the publio are
entitled to expect a report  on  the
subject  soon  from the committee
hiving the  matter in  hand,   If
there is an alternative scheme to be
inquired into, of coarse  that  will
complicate and increase the labors of
tho committee, but no timo  ihould
be lost in reporting to the counoil
in the fullest manner on  eaoh  and
every scheme that may bo suggested
for supplying the city with   water.
We have stated that w» did not believe the oouncil could do bettor, in
the interests of the city, than to
come to an agreement with the Co*
quitlam Water Works Company, on
the basis of the proposals made by
thnt compuny. While we seo no
reason for changing our mind on the
subject, it is only fair that the question should be viewed from all sides
and a careful and impartial consideration given to every scheme that
may be proposed to supply the needed water for city and domestic purposes and sewerage. We hope to
hear something on tho water works
question at the next council meeting. Coming to the last subjeot
mentioned, that of offering inducements for the establishing of a flouring mill nt this city, the question
has been under consideration for
two or three weeks by a committee
of the council, und, we presume, is
receiving the most careful attention
nnd exhuustive inquiry. We cannot predict whut the result of the
committee's investigations will be
with respect to the particular propositions before it. We believe that
the members of the committee in
question will spnre no pains to satisfy themselves as to the city's true
interests in dealing with the particular schemes beforo them. On
the general question of the desirability of having a flouring mill established here, there can be no two
opinions. As we have pointed out
on former occasions, the advantages
to be derived from suoh an institution in this city would depend, not
so much upon the number of hands
given employment in the mill (which
would be comparatively trifling), us
upon the increased traffic that would
be built up with the surrounding
districts, and even beyond these
limits, and upon tbe stimulus which
a conveniently situated and sufficiently capable flouring mill would
transmit to gruin raising in the
many suitable portions of tbe district and beyond, whioh would in
turn react upon the prosperity of
tho city occupying the position of
the natural centre for the trade
thus created. As to the amount of
the bonus to be appropriated for a
flouring mill, that should depend
somewhat upon the dimensions and
capacity of the mill proposed to be
established. Wo should not be in
favor of giving a large bonus to a
flouring mill, as such an institution
before starting should see its way
to being self-supporting. Upon
these points the committee should,
and no doubt will, make the most
careful inquiry, si that its recommendations may furnish a valuable
guide for the action of the council.
From ull that we can learn, it is the
desire of the various agricultural settlements of this district that a convenient and efficient flouring mill
should be established at once, and
that it should be locuted at this city
as the most central for ull parts of
the district. Let us pull for a flouring mill, and all the other manufacturing establishments available. It
is these that go far towards building
up a town. Westminster is the
place for a flouring mill, above all
things, and we shall lose nothing,
but rather gain, by offering moderate special inducements for the location here of such an industry.

The Terrible Trials or Two Russian
Administration Exiles.
A lata ot Wo. Well Calenlated to Bring
Toara to the Eyes of ttw Beader-Bow
a Nobl. Woman Loot Bar Child-
HlnryThatlabdesetlbaNe.
The following pathetic passage Is from
one of Ur. Eennan'a articles in the Century: "Two of tbe most Interesting politicals whom'we met in Irkutsk were Mr. ind
Mra. Ivan Chernlavskl, wbo were banished
to Siberia by administrative process in Ml-.
Ibecamo very well acquainted with them,
and for Mrs. Chernlavskl especially I came
to feel tbo profoundest pity and regard.
Few women, even in Russia, have had be*
fore the ago of thirty-five ao tragic and
heart-breaking a life, and still fewer bave
maintained through hardships, sickness
and bereavement auch cheerfulness and
courage. Sbe waa arrested in Odessa in
tho oarly part of 1678 at the ago of about
twonty-flve, and after a long term of imprisonment waa aent hy administrative
process to the provlnoe of Tobolsk. In tbe
city prison of Kiev, on her way to Siberia,
sbo was detained for a few days, aud while
there waa forced to be almost an eye-witness of tbe assassination ot her dearest
friend. A young man of English descent
named Peverly, whom ahe had known from
childhood, had heen arrested ahortly before
upon Uncharge of living on a false pasa:
port and carrying on a revolutionary propaganda, and he waa at that time in the
Kiev prison. Tho night before Mrs. Cher
niuvskl waa to resume her Journey to Siberia, Beverly, with t comrade named libit-
ski, attempted to escape through a tunnel
which they had succeeded ln digging from
their cell to a#oiat outside tbe prison vrall.
Tbe prison authorities, however, had to some
way become aware df the existence of the
tunnel, and bad posted a squad of soldiers
near tho place where tbe fugitivea must
emerge from the ground. Late at night,
when tbey nude their appearance, they
were received with a volley of musketry.
Beverly wu mortally wounded, andaa he
lay writhing on the ground he waa dla*
Gtched by a soldier with aeveral repeated
yonet-thrusts. Isbltaki, wounded and severely beaten, waa taken baok into prison.
Tho neat morning when Mrs. Chernlavskl
started with her party tor Siberia she had
to march past the bloody and disfigured
body of her dearest friend, whioh wu still
lying where it had fallen, In plain sight of
the prison windows.
"-lean boar my own personal torment,'
sho said lome with a sob u sho finished the
story ef this tragedy, 'but such thing, aa
that break my heart1 < ,.*
"I need not recount the hardships and
miseries that ahe, t cultivated and refined
woman, endured on the road and in the
Koadside otapes between Kiev and thesmall
town in tbe Siberian province of ^Tobolsk
whero she and her husband had beenu*
signed a residence. They reached their
destination at last; a child was there born
to them, and they Uved there in something
liko comfort until March, 1881, wheu Alexander UL came to the throne, and Mr. Chernlavskl wu required to take the oath of al-
logiauce. He refused to do so, and they were
sent further eutward tothe town cf Eras,
noyarsk. A aecoUB refusal to take the
oath of allegiance resulted in their being
sent to Irkutsk. By thla time winter had set
in, and they were travelingin an open taran*
tu with a delicate baby thirteen montha of
age. It wu with tha greatest dlBoulty
that Mrs. Chernlavskl oould keep her baby
warm, and at the last station before reaching Irkutsk she removed the heavy wrappings In whioh ahe had enveloped it and
found it dead. With the shock ot this discovery she became delirious, and went,
sangpethetlo littlo nursery songs to her
dead child, rocked It In her arms, and prayed
and cursed Ood by turns. In the court-yard
of the Irkutsk forwarding prison, Ina tern*
peraturo of thirty degrees below aero, Mr.
Chernlavskl stood (or half an hour waiting
for tho party to he formally received, with
bis wife raving in delirium beside him and
hia dead child in his arms.
"Mrs. Chernlavskl lay in the prison hospital at Irkutsk until she Hoovered her ret*
I son, and to some extent her strength, aud
* then ahe and her husband were unt two
thouaand milea farther to the northeastward
nnder guard of gendarmes, snd colonised in
1 a Yakut settlement known u the Bataruskl
ooloos, situated In the ■tiaga' or primeval
wilderness of Yakutsk, one. hundred
and sixty-five miles from the near
est town. There, Buffering almost every ooncelvable hardship and privation,
they lived until ISM, when the Minister of
the Interior allowed them to return to a
I more civilised partof Siberia
"Mrs. Cberniavski when I mado her acquaintance wu a pale, delicate, hollow,
cheeked woman, whose health had heen
completely wrecked by yeara of imprison*
ment, banishment and grief. She bid had
. two children, and had lost them both In exile undor circumstances tbat made the be-
'reavement almost intolerable; for aeven
| yeara ahe had been soparated by a dis-
i tanue of many thousand milea from all of
her kindred; aud the future seemed to
hold for her absolutely nothing except the
*r love of her husband whose exile she could
still share, but whose interests sheoould do
I ao little ln her broken state of health to pro*
■■ mote. She had not been able to step outside the house for two months, and it
■ seemed to me, when I bade her good-bye,
that her life of unhapplnoM and suffering
wu drawingte a oloao.
". • IT do not know whetherMrs, OhornlnvsU
I Is now living or deads but if ahe be still
living, I trust that these pages may find
i their way to ber and ahow her that on tha

GOOD  HOME REMEDIES.
VariM. Vm. tn W*M> TaipaaUn. Can

Every household medicine closet should
contain a bottle of aplrlta of turpentine, to
boused not only u medicine, but fora
varloty of other purposes, writes Maria
Parloaln the Housewife. Here aro some of
the uses to whioh it can be put:
Old furniture that hu a dull, greasy look
should be rubbed with turpentine and then
wllsb-d with nny good polish. PThe improvement in Its appearance will well repay
you for the trouble. White spots on f urni-
.ure can be removed by wetting a piece of
ilonnol with turpentine and then nibbing
the spot hard. It may require several application*, of turpentine and considerable patience and strength for the
rubbing tor some obstinate places, but the
worst spot will yield in time. If the whito
ipot was caused by the spilling of an
ilcohelio substance, it will he easy to
efface it; but but and some other agents
make marks which are more difficult to oolite nilo.
Grease on olothing can be removed by wotting a piece of flannel with turpentine and
rubbing vigorously. Perhaps it will require
several applications of the spirits. Still,
tho reward wlllcome in the end. Benzine,
chloroform and ether ail are good for thit
purpoRO, but turpentine, although it ia like-
iy to show an enlarged ring on adolleate
fabric, does not change the colors, as
alcohol and ether sometimes do, and Is perfectly safe for even inexperiencod peoplo
to use. Por coarse fabrics, like men's
clothes, it will be''found particularly vain-
ablo. It will take out wheel grease and
ather hinds of spots quickly and without
damaging tho cloth,
For medicinal purposes turpentlno may bo
-mployed in many ways. For pain in the
itomach, bowels, kidneys or bladder, dip it
large piece of flannel in hot water, ind after
wringing it saturate it with turpentine.
Lay this cloth on the seat of pain and cove:
with another piece of flannel or a towel, li
the patient be In great pain, at the end of
twonty minutes or half an hour wring the
flannel from hot water and saturate it with
turpentine. It la a rare thing that more
than tbe aeoond application hu to be made.
In aevero oases it is betterto apply the turpentlno with lard rather than hot water.
Mix the turpentine in the proportion of a
tublespoonful to an equal quantity of
lard and spread on tho flannel. This
preparation oan be kept on for hours without disturbing the patient, whereas that
made with hot water will, u a rule, have to
be removed in half an hour or loss time.
Where bloating of the bowels occurs from
the accumulation ot gas. ten drops of tur-
ponlluoon a lump of sugar or ntoaspoonful
of granulated augar, taken internally—
three doses in twelve hours-will afford relief. In severe eaaes the dote Is often as
large as a teaspoonful; but this should be
only by a pbyaieian'a advice. In bloating
of the bowels ln dysentery, halta teaspoon-
f ul of turpentine in a dose of castor-oil will
relieve tho patient
PATIENCE  SORELY TRIED.
The Thirsty Clergyman, the Spigot aad
tha Baml of Ala.
An amusing story It told by the New
York Times of an up-town preacher,
whose churoh ia tbe center of one of the
moat important parishes ln Harlem. It hu
been tho doctor's habit for muy yeara to
tako a light aupper of aome crackers,
ehccsoandaglassof new ale before retiring, nnd he wu always provident enough to
keep a half-barrel of the beverage in his
cellar. Hia wife informed him one after,
noon that an aunt of hers, who enjoyed alo
evon more tban the clergyman did, was
on ber wny to the eity and would arrive at
tho pai'aouuge the following afternoon.
'Then, my dour," observed the .good man,
"we must get some fresh ale."
The barrel arrived the samo afternoon
and was carefully stored away iu the collar
until the morrow, when the doctor intended
to pnt a spigot tn it and nave it all read;.
forthe expected aunt. Upon looking over
his diary in the morning the clergyman saw
that he had a wedding to attend at 10:30
o'clock, so he dressed himself faultlessly,
and wu about going out, when" bis wife
suggested that he had but fix the ale
Snatching up a mallet and a wooden
spigot the dootor shot down-stain and his
wife wentlelaurelytothtunperpartof the
houte. Ten minutu elapted and- then
fifteen, when the clergyman's wife
began to wonder If her husband had
gone without bidding her adieu. She
looked at the hat-rack down-stairs
and there were hia bat and overcoat. Be*
scending, the anxious wife arrived at the
foot of the cellar stairs, where a scene
baffling adequate description confronted
her. The dignified clergyman wus seated
on the ground with ono hand olosed tightly
about the end of a brokiu spigot aud tho
other wringing the new ale out of bla
whiskers. It wu pretty cool in the cellar
and the drenched minister wu shivering.
Looking at hia wife appealing.-, ho at Id:
" F-For Heaven's sake, Martha, g-g-get
meab-hung."
Almost overcome by her laughter, hia
wife found a bung and handed it to her
unfortunate husband. He grasped It ns a
disheartened swimmer ia said to grab at a
solitary straw, and placing It over the
broken spigot, gave ita rap with the mallet,
Intending to drive both late the hole and
thus atop the leak. But he struck too hard.
The spigot went clear in, and ao did the
hung, but the latter In its pusage split the
staves, and, with the rush of a small cloud
burst, the ale tern all over the clergyman
and wetted him to the akin. An Mesne vim.

the houte wu retched the clergyman
turned to his wife and remarked I

Biunmei* hotel. The enterprise so
necessary to tho city lima been under
i'niisidoratioii for some months and it
is thought a sulllciont number of en-
terprisiu; citizens of means will bo
found to take hold of tlie matter and
carry it through. It is understood
that tlie promoters have secured the
refusal of suitable grounds on which to
erect tho hotel at James Bay, and a

has been for the past 10 days. Ho
wns seen by a reporter ahortly after he
arrived and ho said that work on the
road had reached a point 15 miles
north of Whatcom and considering tho
fact that it waa winter excellent progress was being made. An office building has just beon finished which ia 24x
60'feiit and three storiea high. It is
now occupied, though tho painters
have not as yet finished their labors on
the building. At Kingsboro a 25,000-
feet-a-day saw mill is to bo erected to
saw lumber for construction purposes.
Applications for lots for five churches,
a hotel, a 40xl00-foot public hall,

havo beon made, and the town of
Kingsboro seems to have a future before it. A bridge is to bo snon built

be 100 feet, the beam 45 feet. On tho
British side tho only work that is being dono at present is tlio filling in of
crib work on a hill near the Frasor
river. As aoon as tho soring opens tho
work will bo rushed under the supervision of .lames Leitmy, an old contractor. All tho financial irrango-

KuiToii  Columbian'. -■• In  common
with a largo majority,of the citizens of
Westminster, 1 am thoroughly in accord
with your suggestion last night that the
present opportunity  of   changing tlio
city's name should not be lost.   It is a
great pity the name had not been changed
when the new charter was first framed;
but the  council of that day refused to
make such a recommendation, although
it was unanimously requested by one of
tlio most representative meetings of citizens over  brought together.   I believe
the  present  counoil is in favor of the
change, ami it is hoped some alderman
will mako a motion to that effect at the
next meeting.   You are perfectly right
iu asserting tlmt there is nothing to bo
said  iu favor of the cumbersome name
except that it was given by the queen;
but do tho persons who urge thiB view
tbemsolves write it "New VVcatmlnstcr"
in deference to her majesty T 1 am afraid
not; and tho plea is not such as to.com-
mend itself to any sensible man.   The

Hon. Mr. Robson thought this
resolution would pass the house unanimously. When at Ottawa be had
endeavored to impress upon the government the necessity of offering
encouragement of this kind, although
ho found thoro was groat difficulty to
contend with an account of tho number of similar applications.
Col. Baker supported tho resolution
and hoped a remission of the duty

EniTon Columbia:*.—Your oorrtspon-
dent, "Publio Opinion," must be ol tho
"upper ten" class. Ho seems to look
forward to the timo when we shall bo in
tlie enjoyment of a real live kingly court,
as ho says,' 'moving from point to point,"
spending money, &c. He admits that it
would be more costly than tho present
"governor-general figure-head," I have
often noticed that "Publio Opinion" fur-
niahea more material against his contention than he docs for it. He says that
"we have to receive a governor-general
chosen by the Imperial government and
our past experience shows that they are
tittle versed in questions of vital importance to a Btrong, growing, enterprising,
business people; Canada lias served as a
school to educate these men to the best
form of colonial government in the
world," and that the home government,
seeing their increased usefulness, despatches them on important missions elsewhere, iu preference to their statesmen
who havt not had a colonial training.
But, in tho faco of this acknowledgment,
that colonial self-government is far in
advance of the Imperial government, ami
that it is a school to educate British
noblemen in the art of government, it
seems Btrango that "Public Opinion"
ahould advocate a change back to kingly
rule. Only for her colonial self-government, England herself would have, been
in the same position of the other European governments—in a state of semi-
oarbarism, England's greatness, to-day,
is owing to her pilgrim colonists, who
braved every dauger for the purpose of
finding homes nwuy from the dwarfing
influence of kingly rulo. What would
North America havo been to*day if the*
colonists had asked for a king when they
formed a republic T Canada would havo
been a vast howling wilderness yet, in
possession of the Hudson's Bay Co. Tho
present position of England and her colonies is perhaps the very beat that could
exist for mutual benefit, and the man or
men who attempt a sudden change would
be worthy a place in a lunatic asylum.
Wc are a wholesome check upon ono
another. It is sickening to read all the
rubbish that is propounded by designing
knaves about England and her colonies;
we should be thankful to Providence for
the lines that wu now occupy, and wait
patiently until the "cloudy pillar" takes
the initiative. Colonist.
