—feire Haute Bx_mtt.
Air. John L. Davis, in tho Journal
of Pharmacy, asserts (having fully
tested it in his own case), that a
preparation of ono ounce of sulphur
and one quart of water, repeatedly
agitated during intervals of a few
hours, and the head saturated every
morning with the clear liquid, will,
in a few weeks, remove every trace
of dandruff from the scalp, and the
hair will become soft and glossy.
He says; I do not protend to explain
tho 'modus operandi' of' the treatment, for it is well known that sublimed sulphur is almost or wholly
insoluble, and tho liquid used was
destitute of taste, color or smell.
The effect speaks for itself.
JUST MEASURES.
Parnell's Counsel will be Allowed
Access to Jails in Working up
tlie Case against the Times.
Serious Tithe Biots in Wales and
Many People Hurt.   Military

Mr. Sraalley's Interesting Cable ou
European Matters.  The Conservatives still Confident.
Somo Norwegian officers have
been making experiments recently
with snow* forts, not with reference
to boyish games of snow-balling,
but the genuine military value.
Snow was packed into walls nine
feet thick, and 11 company fired three
hundred shots at the short distance
of thirty-three yards. Examination
showed that not a single hall had
succeeded in penetrating more tban
a yard and a quarter into the snowy
fortress, and that every bullet was
flattened out ns completely as if it
had been fired against a hard substance. These experiments commend themselves to the consideration
of our Oanadian volunteers. '
A late London cable of Mr.
Suiiilley's to the _Vi'6uh*j says:
"Pigott's four children aro not forgotten now that their unhappy
father has gone penniless out of the
world. Mr. Parnell remembered
thom even before that pistol shot
was heard in Madrid." "I may
have to prosecute Pigott for perjury,"
said Mr. Parnell j "hut if I do>I shall
feel bound to take care of his ehildron." lb was a chivalrous as well
as a generous impulse. Mr. Libou-
cherc thinks the Times ought to
look after theso orphans. "Their
father," ho writ03 in tho Pall Mall
Gazette, "was a clever man, and his
career and end were sad. My
doctor told mc this morning that it
wns all due to a place in Ins head,
which ought to contain something
moral, being a cavity. Anyhow, I
am sorry for his children, nnd if you
start a subscription I will send you
£5.
, Tlie Chicago Uerald has the. following sensible reflections : Let us
not delude ourselves with fictitious
greatness. Thero is another country
at whose greatness we muy well
pause for contemplating. Its urea
exceeds eight hnd a half million
miles. The basis of its power is not
land, but water. Its greatsst is
maritime, und its coast-line is -IS,*
500 miles long. It lies on both
sides of the equator, but its boundaries touch tho extremes of heat
and cold. Its uncultivated area,
wliich can be made to feed unborn
millions without the help of the
United States, covers millions of
square miles. It contains 100,000
squaro miles of forest, which are
being jealousy preserved, while ours
are being ruthlessly sacrificed. Its
population amounts to 345,000,000
souls, including pretty nearly all
the races known to man. Its
revenuu for government amounts to
more than a thousand million dollars annually, only one -fourth of
whicli is levied in direct taxation.
It has nearly a million men undrr
arms. It has one policeman for
evory sixty square miles of its
entire area. Its 246 war-vessels
are all in commission, not rotting
in harbors. Its merchant navy
consists of 30,000 ships manned by
170,000 sailors. Its seagoing tonnage amounts to eight and a half
millions. It surpasses in steamers
all other powers on the globe, and
nearly equals their combined total
in sailing-vessels. Forty-nine per
cent, of the carrying power of the
world is under that flag. More
than half tho ship earnings from
freight and passengers belong to it.
Two-thirds of the tonnage annually
built belongs to it. The banks of
Unt empire transact one-third the
business of tho entiro world. Its
manufacturers comprise one-third
thoso of all Europe. It uses 30 per
cent, of the horse-power of the
world,' Its enormous debt, which
is uses as the most profitable investment of its own earnings, amounts
to only 9 per cent of its wealth, It
is the wealthiest state in the world,
and its wealth has been made by
exports,   Its name is Groat Britain,

JUST   MEASURE-1,
London, March 20.— In the liouu of
common.- to-day, Mr. Matthews, home
secretary, announced that Parnell's counsel would be allowed tho same freedom
of access to convicts in Irish prisons as
was allowed the counsel for the Times in
working up their ease for presentation
before tlie Parnell commission,
TITUS B10T.S.
Lonuoh, March 20.—Riots occurred
to-day in Wales over the collection of
titues. While officers were serving
notice of distraint at Cardigan, Puebryer,
mobs attacked the polico protecting the
oflicera and many persons on both sides
were injured. The militia will probably
he called out to quell the disturbance,
smalley's cable.
Loudon, March 20.—Mr. Smith's
ill health gives fresh currency to rumors of cabinet reconstruction. They
have little foundation except   in   the
fiossible necessity of finding a new
eader for the house of com mans. Lord
Randolph Churchill being out of question, thore roinains only Mr. Guschen
as Mr. Balfour cannot quit tho Irish
oflico nor lend tho house white Irish

O'UIIIEN AND  HAliltlNOTON.
Messrs. O'Brien and Harrington
have both refused to accept the release
offered them by Sir James Hannen, on
condition of abstaining from atptatton.
Sir Charles Ruiaoll and Mr. Parnell
both urged theso gentlemen to come
out in thoir own interests and especially in the interest of their colleagues.
Mr. O'Brien is understood to hold
thut hiB acceptunce of tho proposed
condition would imply a confession of
wrongdoing. Nobody else quite understood how or why, "but Mr.
O'Brien is law unto himself," sagely
observes one of his admirers; their
joint refusal spoils tho spectacle which
thoir friends were planuim-. They
proposed that Mr. Harrington should
appear iu tlio houso of commons in hiB
prison clothes. These music hall politics are much in favor with less respectable or more excitable Gladstonians,
No ono has yet proposed that Mr.
O'Brien should appear in hie prison
garb.   He has none,
tillLLCHSs-UFl'L.
The torics amid ull their troubles
continue to prefer ve the appearance
of cheerfulness. They mustered in
tremendous force at the Countess of
Stanhope's reception on Saturday
evening, whero there was no lack of
beaming faces and confident words.
"What have wc to be unhappy about?"
said one minister, "a government
which could not govern with a majority
of 80, would not bo a government.

their visit here special honors have

and they were recently entertained to

THE U. 8, INTKtl-STATE COMMITTEE
\Vasuin(.ton, March 10.—At a
meeting of the satiate committeo on
inter-state commerce to-day, urrange-
meuls were timdi* for pursuing an iu*
ventilation of Canadian transportation
mutter* ordered by n resolution of the
ietiatfl of Aug. 3rd, 1888. It was determined to meet in New York, May
5th. It is poBitblti that beforo aum-
mer is ovor tho committee will go over
the entire length of the Canadian Paciiic road.
DOMINION  PAIU.IAM.ENT.
Ottawa, March 10.—Tho debate
was resumed to-floy by Mr. Cockburn,
M. P., for Toronto. Mr. Cockburn is
a firm believer in national protection,
aud objects to nny schemes fur un-
restricted reciprocity or commercial
union. Ho Instituted comparisons to
show that the various provinces of
Canada aro enjoying greater prosperity
than the various states of the union.
Tho decline in lnnd values in New
York state from 1670 to 1880 wns
(1570,000,000, while the provinco of
Ontario in the Mine period experienced
an increase . of 906,225,000. Threo
quarters o( the farms of Now York
state are mortgaged. The Americana'
alleged aristocracy, ho said, livo only
for boodle, and ho did not hnve anything kind to say about tho plutocracy.
All the Americans wanted was tu get
tho trade of Canada snd givo nothing
iu return. If Canada, ns the opposition contended, really wanted closer
trade relations, it would bo bettor for
them to look back to 1875 when the
United Statei made her an offer which
itill holds good. This offer is nn invitation to Oamdn to become a portion
of tho American union on tho sa,ao
terms as the States forming tho union.
Those resolutions of Congressman Hitt
were endowed by the Canadian liberals
who pretented to want only unrestricted reciprocity. "Ho made a miss"
laughingly interrupted Sir John. The
resolutions declared for commercial
union and this meant a political union,
and the liberal* could not deny it.
Commercial union would abolish customs houses and discriminate against
England in return for her sacrifices in
favor of Canada. Continuing amidst
interruptions, ho held up an American
political cartoon, in which the the
American flag triumphantly waved
ovor thu Union Jack and forms of the
prostrate British statesmen aud called
on the liberals to alter their course if
they wero loyal subjects and desired to
live under tho folds of tho Union Jack,
Tlio American union could not onter
into unrestricted reciprocity with
Canada because if she did it would be
by violating treaties with otlicrnations.
Canada ia not for sale, and byo-aud-
bye como weal, come woe, will work
out herowndeBtmy.
Mr. Davics followed and denied that
the liberals are anymore disloyal than
the conservative*; but aaid that the
disloyalty complained of was want of
faith in a particular party administration. Messrs. Madill, Hudspeth,
Semplo and Haggart followed.
, Sir.* Richard Cartwright's amendment was defeated by 44 majority, tho
vote standing yens 77; nnys 101.
In the senate to-day Mr. Uinrd askod whether the government proposes
to introduce any measure for the protection of the peoplo in the fisheries,
of the great Mackenzie River BhbSo'.
Mr. Abbott replied thnt tho time fur
sueh aetion had nut arrived.

The following is an exact copy of the

government in locating roads in that <
neighborhood. Resolutions were passed at the meeting condemnatory of
tho manner in which roads bad been
located in that part of the district,
"being contrary to the interests of
ninety-nine one-hundred ths nf those

appointing committees for the following purposes: To draft a petition and

For the information of our readers, we publish to-day tho fulll text
of the agreement between the corporation of this city and the Coquitlam
Water Works Company, as passed
and endorsed by the eity council
at their last meeting. A perusal of
the document will show that, for the
sum of $20,000, the city obtains
from the company all their right,
title and interest in tho Coquitlam
Water Works enterprise, as conferred by charter, together with
necessary rights-of-way, powers, Ac,
to enable the oity to construct and
operate the above-mentioned works
for all time, and the plans, profiles,
estimates, ko., prepared by the company to date. In other words, for
the consideration above mentioned,
the city steps right into the shoes of
the Ooquitlam Water Works Oompany, pushes the works to completion, and receives the benefit of all
the revenue accruing in the future
from the supply of water, at a
reasonable rate, to the citizens of
this promising burgh. In addition,
the oity secures the advantage of
having its own water, free, for flushing sewers, fire protection, and other
public uses. Although, by the agreement the company receive a fair
compensation, the bargain is decidedly a good one for the city, as we
have shown. As soon as possible,
probably not for several weeks yet, as
the new assessment roll must first
be completed, a by-law will be prepared and passed by the council,
authorizing the issue of water works
debentures to raise tho sum required
for constructing the works, and
thereafter laid before the ratepayers
for their ratification, which may
safely, we think, be taken for granted. It is not necessary to enlarge
upon the keenly-felt want whioh the
water works will supply, nor to
dilate upon tho enviable position of
the city and its enhanced eligibility
in many respects when the pure and
exhaustless water of, the Coquitlam
Lake has been laid to our doors.
These points we havo elaborated before, and our city readers, at least,
fully appreciate their force. With
Westminster's wide-awako and progressive council, and the many assured schemes on foot for the city's
welfare and advancement in all that
goes to build up a real metropolis,
the immediate future of the royal
city is certainly big with promisi'.
We can safely challenge a comparison in these respects with auy
city on the coast.
England does not intend to surrender the supremacy of the seas,
observes an exchange, and the remark is nothing if not obvious. The
proposition recently made to the
British parliament by Lord George
Hamilton, flrst lord of the admiralty,
that the nation shall spend over a
hundred million dollars in building
new war vessels of various kinds,
from ponderous men-of-war to torpedo boats, will probably take other
countries by surprise, and yet it is
quite what England might be expected to do. For some years past
criticism of the navy has been common enough, and Lord Oharles
Beresford has kept hammering away
at the government, for not spending
more money on men-of-war. Even
now Lord Oharles is not satisfied,
. and takes the ground that Britain's
naval strength should be equal to
the navies of France and any otber
great powor combined. Lord Wol-
seley said not long since that if England hnd provisions enough to keep
her going for two weeks she could
drive out any army that succeeded
in effecting a landing on her shores.
The thing is to prevent a landing
being effected, and this can best be
done by strengthening and increasing the navy. Von Moltke once
said that he knew of seven different
ways of getting an array into England, but he did not know of one
way of getting it out again. And,
of course, a wise general of an
army always keeps a line of retreat
open in case of necessity. It is not
often that such an one is prepared
to burn his boats behind him. It is
evident that Britain is determined
to be prepared for whatever eventualities tho future may have in store.
In time of peacn prepare for war, ia
* good motto, and particularly so at
thii time, when all the peace professing nations of Europe are assiduously "working up their muscle."

II j« proposed that, fortMd ol Can-
e_itfcwlBgi>lc»»M into thenrms
„Uncto**»m»el,»pi
be made by the former to hr-ve the
New England states enter into partnership with the Dominion. One
of the members of the house of commons, Mr. Mills, of Nova Scotia, has
placed a notice of motion before the
house reciting the advantage it
would be to the New England states
to confederate with Canada, and calling on tho Dominion government to
do everything in its power to accomplish the object in view. The proposal will, of course, be treated with
as much seriousness on the other
side of the border as tho American
proposal to annex Canada is treated
with on this. And no more. Peoplo do not change their allegiance
with tho readiness with which they
change their boarding house, nor do
they tear their political institutions
up by the roots with indifference.
In the case of the New England
states, however, it must be kept in
mind thnt they have a close kinship with Canada and also that there
is a large French Canadian element
in that region which would probably
hold up its hand in fnvor of bringing
the New England states baok to
their allegiance to the British crown.
One American journal, commenting
upon the motion, actually went so
far as to intimate, apparently in all
seriousness, that the New England
states would bo a good riddance to
the republic, that the people were
largely treasonable in their sentiments, tbat thoy had a hankering
after tho Canadian or British flag
anyway, and it would be a good job
if the states in question were annexed to Canada. Whether the writer
was really in earnest or not, no ono
would accept such statements for
American sentiment, and the "eagle"
would undoubtedly ruffle up his
feathers most fiercely, and do worse,
if any serious attempt were made to
trespass on his domain. It is to be
hoped, though, that this little by
play may enable our amiable, but at
times coveteously inclined neighbors,
to see themselves in the light of
some of their own actions.
A Western Koniutee.
A late despatch from Douglas, Wyo.,
says:—The Widow MoOool, oged 18,
has been station agent at Dr; Cheyenne on the stage route between thero
and Buffalo. She is a pretty brunette,
and commanded the admiration of all
the cattle men for miles around. After refusing a dozon offers, she accepted Martin liunton, n wealthy
ranchman, and thoy were to bo married in May. Last week a blonde-
haired young Englishman, Jas. Kidd,
travelling for an Omaha provision
house, came along. Ilia good looks
and gentle ways produced an impression. He went to Buffalo, transacted
his business, and returned lo Dry
Cheyenne on Saturday, and that
night, took the widow to a dance, 20
mites away, st Sheriff William's ranoh.
Hunton was insanoly jealous, and his
cowboys were ordered to pick a quarrel with Kidd and shoot him. The
programme was carried out, but Kidd
pulled out two six-shooters and backed up against a closed door leading to
a bedroom, Ed. Cook, Hunlon's foreman, dropped dead from one ol Kidd's
bullet's and three or four others were
wounded. Kidd was shot in tho arm
and the gang were closing on him
when the door bshind suddenly opened; he was dragged into the bedroom,
and the door was quickly bolted. The
young widow had got into tbe bedroom from the rear, and Kidd owed his
life to her coolness. His escape in
the darkness was nut discovered. Kidd
secured a ssddle-horse, and placing
the widow in front of him galloped
off. The couple wero terribly fatigued
when they reached hero on Sunday
night. After refreshments they hired
a team and driver, and pushed on lo
Chadron, Neb., where they were married.
Sheriff Williams, Hunton snd a
dozen cowboys got hero ten hours behind them. They wero terribly enraged when they found the elopers
were so far in tho load, but started for
Chadron. They have not returned
this way, and it is believed that tho
elopers reached a railway station and
are now safe.

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

Horrors of the French Penal Colony Off the Cayenne Coast
The following episode was related to a
correspondent of the Detroit Free Press by
a United Statos naval officer, who was an
cyc-wi tnesB to tho scones, and whoso phraseology I shall follow as closely as possible:
" In tbo year 18661 was aboard tho United
Statos steumBhlp Vanderbllt, Commotion)
John It, RodgorB commanding, anil wo wero
acting as a consort to a doublo-turroted
monitor on its way around Capo Horn to a
Pacific station. Running short of coal we
put iu at tho Isles of Salute to obtain our
supply.
"To tho uninformed I must hore stato
tbat the Isles of Salute are off tbo French
Guiana coast, and aro to France what Botany Bay Ib to England. Thore all noted
Froncb criminals aro sent, and few, if any,
ovor return to their native country. On
boing convicted of a crime tbo criminal la
given a number, and by that number only
bo is known. His name becomes a thing of
tho past. If ho has frionds It would be on
uttor impossibility for thom to trace him, as
his name and number appear but once togothor, and that onco upon tho criminal
records, which are kept perfectly secret.
From this it can easily be imagined bow
easily ho drops from the knowledge of tho
world when ho is forwarded to tho Isles of
Saluto to end his miserable and crime-
stainod lifo; for ond It ho must in ono yeur,
perhaps two years. Tho climate does Itand what a terrible climate it must bo.
"Good heavens I novor' before had I seen
suoh an assemblage of careworn, hopeless,
florae and desperate countenances. I believo the only employment that could bo
found for them was coaling vessols, Ab
wo lay inthe harbor one thing that struck
mo as being singular was the presence of
such a large number of ravenous, man-
citing sharks, some tremendous in size.
Tlio harbor was literally swarming with
thom and their sharp Hns could be seen cutting tho wator in oven* direction, God help
tho ono wbo was bo unfortunate as to fall
overboard there. I afterward learned that
none of tho convicts wore ever burled upon
tho islands, but that tho bodies of the dead
had simply a weight tied to them, and wero
then thrown into tho harbor. This custom,
no doubt, explained the presence of so many
sharks.
"Wo had completed our coaling one evening and wore to sail in about two days. The
sua dropped below tho horizon, and as thero
ib, practically, no twilight in that region,
night soon onvoloped us la hor dark folds.
It being sultry, thero were a number of
officers on tho quarter-dock, among them
Commodore Kodgers and myself. Somewhere noar six bolls (elovon o'clock) wo
wore startled by hearing soveral exclamations, followed by a cautious call in Fronch,
from tho port sido of tho vessel, and apparently from tho wator. Ordors woro immediately givon to lower a lantern, and when
this was done wo beheld the form of a man,
, oinaclated, haggard nnd wild-eyed, clinging
to tlio side of tho vessel. A rope was lowered; he was soon drawn aboard and
brought beforo tho Commodore. He was
attired in a flimsy shirt and pantaloons.
One glance was sufficient to inform us that
be was a convict. Speaking in French he
mode an appeal to our comumndor for protection.
'"But how did you got thero, man!' cried
tho Commodore. 'Good heavens! you never
could have swam out to tho vessel*'
" At this question our mlndB reverted to
tho harbor swarming with sharks, and I,
for ono, could not repress a shudder at tho
moro thought.
" - Death, no matter in what form, has no
terrors for me,' answered tho convict.
1 Since coming here, havo I not suffered
death athousaud times ovor? Ami not already dead to my relatives, frionds and tho
world! Tho slight hopo held out to mo by
tho coming of your vessel waa -sufficient.
Tho chances of being torn to pieces by
sharks did not mako mc shrink.'
" Our imagination can scarcely grasp tho
import of such hopelessness. Further questions revealed to us that this poor devil had
boen a French soldier, and had committed
the horrlblo erimo of striking a superior
oflicer. For that, ho bad been numbered
and sent to the Isles of Salute to die a lingering death. Listening attentively until,
the convict had finished, the obmmoflorb
said:
'"My poor fellow, tho lawB of humanity
cry out to me la your behalf, hut I am
forced to treat thom as secondary considerations, no matter how unjust it may bo.
International laws aro stronger in this case,
and I must tell you that it is my imperative
duty to retnrn you.'
" Tho Frenchman's reply staggered the
Commodoro somewhat. Said he: 'You
aro the representative of a glorious Republic-and I camo to you for protection; instead, I find that I have como to hoar my
doom pronounced.-
" Ho then informed us that those who attempted to escape, when caught, wore immediately shot. But knowing bis duty, the
Commodoro gavo tho necessary orders, and
soon our boat was making its way towards
a spot where wo thought tho convict would
bo ablo to pass the cordon of sentries undiscovered. Our boat could not be seen as the
night was too dark. Fully three-quarters
of the distance had beon passed when we
board a cry from the land, followed soon
after by tho long roll of adrum, and torches
Hushed, hither and thither as though tn
search of something. The Frenchman was
landed, and our boat mado ito way towards
the snip. Loud shouts suddenly arrested
our attention, and we saw the torches gathered around a certain point, and soon move
off [-together, Before half an hour had
passed all was still and darkness again.
" I happened to beon deck the following
morning at daybreak, and had scarcely
walked across tho dook onco when I heard
tho sound of a volley being fired. Taking
up the glass, I pointed it toward shore.
Soon a boat pulled put, manned by four
oarsmen. A tall, cadaverous individual,
drossed ln a black gown, sat In the stern,
and a dark objoot lay ln tho bottom. Drawing nearer, tho boat passed the bow of tho
Vanderbllt. A little beyond it stopped; the
cadaverous individual read a fow sentences
from a book; the dark objeot was lifted
and thrown overboard with a plunge. A
rush of thoso hellish monsters, a deep red
coloring of the wator, and all was o'er,"
An AuconpiiitiRd Wife.
"Ah, old fellow," said an Austin gentleman, meeting another on the Avenue,
"so you are married nt last. Allow me
to congratulate yqu, for I hear you bave

"I bave indeed/* was the reply; "She

DOGS IN  WARFARE.
How   They   Are   Taught to Detect tho
.Presence of the Enemy,
Among tbe various uses to which the intelligence of dogs has been pnt Is that of
scouts in military affairs, says Blackwood's Magazine. Hero the well-trained
dog does such services as to become woll
nigh invaluable.
That Napoleon fully realized how important arolo might be assigned to dogs is well
known. In 1709 he wrote to Marmout:
"Thero should bo at Alexandria u largo
number of dogs, which you ought to bo ablo
to omploy by massing' them in groups at a
short distance from the walls." Tho ninrvcl
lsth.it, iiUer so plain an expression on iho
subject from such an authority la tho nrt of
war, the employment of dogs should not
huvo bci-ome ii matter of course, instead ot
which, eighty-nine years later, it is still regarded us u tentative measure.
Recent experiments provo that tho well-
trained dog will give notice of the presence
of n man, drossed in the uniform of a lo;*.
at a distance of one thousand feet. And
just as Um oustom-houso dog passes quietly
by honest peasants and only calls tlio attention of their masters to law-br 'alters, sn
these wiso regimental dogs Ignom Iho
movements of uhattuched civilians, but
seem to develop astrongpersoual antipathy
lo any person whom thoy intuitively rcuf-g-
uizoas boing 1 u tho service of tho enemy.
Probably, however, no dog has ever
rendered such signal military service, or
has boen so honorably recognized as
the celebrated poodlo Mustache, who
shared tho victorious fortunes ot
tho French army through most of the wars
of tho Consulate and tho Fronch empire.
Ho won special honor at Marengo, and was
decorated on tho battlefield of Austorlitz
by Mtii-5lml Latinos ns a reward for having
rescued his regimental standard from an
Austrian soldier when inthe act of snatching it from tho grasp of tho standard-
bearer as ho fell mortally wounded. Tho
plucky poodlo drove off tho assailant, and.
then seizing the tattered colors in bis
teeth, dragged them triumphantly till he
reached his own* company.
It is evident that were military dogs to
bo exclusively choson from any special
breed,,all animals of that race would become targets for the foe, whenever seen,
thoroforo dogs aro to bo settled on account
of Individual merit—or rather promlso of
nu'i-ii, ns it i3 necessary to begin their tuition in e;tiiy youth,and canine education
should bo commenced In good earnest ut six
months of age. So tho dogs now to bo seen
in training at certain German and French
military stations aro of all sorts und sizes—
"dachshunds" and poodles, retrievers and
collies, greyhounds,'foxhounds, fox terriers
and othors, male and fomalo. Tho Italians
prefer the latter as possessing keener
senses of hearing and scont. All nre
trained to rigid silence—a result only to bo
obtained aftor long and patient tuition, indeed it is at all times difficult to insure
obedience when music strikes up, so great
is tho temptation to give vocal accompaniment.
GRIQG8   EXPERIENCE.
The Trials, Tribulation* ud Sufferings ol
a Thin Han.
I think Grlgg was the thinnestman I evtr
saw, writes Florence Pratt ln tho lankofl
Blade. Had he entered the living skflloton
field ho would havo wiped out all competition. Ho used to speak of it sometimes In a
calm, despairing way,     4Mp
Grlgg said be was so thin that tho bonei
poked through his skin and coat him a small
fortuno in court-plnstor to keep them from
punching holes in his clothes.
He used to weep when he told us that he
hated to lean up against a wall while talking
lo any one, because his bones wero sure tc
peck tho mortar all out before ho go:
through, and it used to hurt,'his feeling:'
when bis friends asked him what wus thi*
mortar with him. tw-
Wq often wonder whyGrigg nover smiled,
but ho Baid the smile was always getting
looped up on his cheek bones and he was too
old to begin lifo as an elephant
He remarked that the saddest exporionct-
of his lifo occurred somo years ago, when
ho was advised to go to the Adirondack for
health. Ho procured a guide and a buck-
board wagon, and away they went for tho
woods. Though Grlgg had nevermeta buck-
board before, he always thought they had
do springs; but ho estimated that this particularono had about two thousand and throe
springs to the minute. He nevor suffered
bo in all his life. Tho guide was chewing
tobacco, aud, though Grlgg knew it wns an
awful thing to wish, ho prayed tnat lie
might swallow It and die. By and by Grigg
becamo resigned. He began to lose his skyward aspirations and to enjoy life. Pretty
soon they stopped and the guide invited hii;
to get down, but Grlgg and tho plank were
so attached by this time that ha couldn't
boar to leavo it.
Tho guido investigated, and began to use
painful language. •**■
Ho explained that Grigg's spina had boon
hammered clean through tbe board and
stuck out the other side. Grlgg said he'd
seen a stream of sawdust following the
wa-rou for somo little ways, hut couldn't nccount for it beforo. The guido was very
disagreeable. Ho said he'd bad a whole
board whea he loft town, and wanted it
back. Grigg pointed out that ho had tho
holo bored now, and claimed indemnity for

Reaching a Man'ri Character by tho Way
In Which Ho Does,
A pretty good index to a man's character
Is tho way in whioh he shakes hands,
says tho Chicago Journal. ■ There Is your
evor-cordlal and beaming friend who grab*}
your holpless fingers lo his great fist
and almost wrings thom oft in a grasp
far mora violent than tho torturer's sentiments aro sincere. This sort of a man will
wring in this way tho hand of on acquaintance whom ho doesn't caro a Jot about, isn't
likely to seo again tor a year, and don't caro
if ho doesn't. Then thoro is your limp, lifo.
loss hand-shaker, who responds to your own
honest nnd moderate grasp with a set of
digits that contain as much vim and friendship as a link of cold sausages In a pork-
butcher's shop. You may, too, havo run
across tho languid lackadaisical wight who.
insults your well-meaning cordiality by
calmly proffering you his left hand as ho
lolls baok in his ohair. (This was a practice
greatly affected by railroad men in tho old
days whon you could call on them for a pass
without having "Intor-Stato Commerce
law!" bawled into your oar). But of nil
hand-shaking horrora, preserve me from the
man who possosaea himaolf of your list nnd
fondlos it affectionately in his own, wrap-
ping it in his long, lithe fingers and pressing
and stroking it for all tho way from one to
nlno minutes. You don't know what to do
with such a man, do you I You can't draw
your hand away without offending him, and
you can't submit to tho application without
cold chills crawling down your spine. On
your choice botwixt tho two ovlls will do*
pond the length of tho torture rou onduro
whon you moot tho affectionate man again.
Justice to Small Nations.
Under war methods, small nations, by
reason of their weakness in a military point
of view, havo to submit to tho insolence and
oppressions of '* groat powers," but if arbitration wero established as tho method of
docidlng International disputes, small notions would havo on equal chance with'
their powerful neighbors to secure justice
and respect.    ■   , -.

A Fall Io Death.
On Saturday - afternoon, Alexander

death, Tho unfortunate man waa boing drawn up to the surface, when the

was empanelled, and returned a verdict of accidental death.

Tho mission bridgo culls for attention on the part of tho board of trade,
Oapt. Iualey had a conversation with
Mr. H. J. Cambic, C.E., n few days
ago, and was informed by hiin that
the wideat span in the bridgo will bo
60 feet. This, Captain Insley considers, is too narrow, as it will bo almoat impossible to pass under the
bridge in safety when a strong beam
wind is blowing. The str. Irving is
40 feet wide, which would leave her
only 10 feet to work on passing
under tho bridge. Unless tho main
span is considerably widened navigation will be rendered. exceedingly
daugerous, and it will be woll for tho
board of trade tu investigate tho matter bofore it is too lato.

tlutrsl Union Concert.
A larger audience than was expected
greeted the Choral Union last night at
tho Oddfellows Hall, tho occaaion boing tho Union's first concert for this
icason. Tho programme was opened
by Mendoleaohn's aucred cantata
"Luuda Sion,1, tho principle parts of
which woro taken by Mrs. Sillitoe,
Mrs. Peelo, Mr. Hamber, Mr. Dock-
nil nnd Mr. Freeman. Tho quartette
by tho first named four wna well recited, tho parts blending smoothly and
tho harmony completo. Mrs, Sillitoe _
aolo was received with generous applause. A part song "When Twilight
Dews" opened the second part of the
programme. Mr. Hamber followed
with "The Soldiers Goodbye,'' which
was sung exceedingly well. Mr. Ham*
bet's voico has greatly improved since
his last appearance. "Eldorado" a part
aong, did credit to the chorus. Tho
timo was perfect nnd tho voices rung
out peculiarly Bwcot and clear. Mrs.
Sillitoe's "Goodbye" elicited a rapturous oncoro, The sweot nnd perfectly
trained voico of this lndy was nover
heard to a hotter advantugo than in
this son-.;, and tho applause was worthily bestowed. "Thore is Music by tho
Rivor," by tno chorus, was a musical
treat ud-u-d, and tho careful training
of the singers was shown to batter advantage in this sons than in any of
the othors. "The King's Champion,"
by Mr. J. O. Dockorill, lUJig in a spirit*
; ed and preciao maimer, was ono
of the bost porformancos of the ovon-
inaf. An encore was asked and responded to. The duet "I Waited for tho
Lord," by Mrs. Sillitoe and Miss Major
was moat pleasingly rendered. The
parts verged on perfection, and tlie
voices blended both musically and
sweetly. Tho part song "Tho Days of
Long Aflo_ and /'God Savo tho
Queen" closed this most enjoyable
concert. . Mrs. Trow presided nt
tho piano and Mr. Morey nt the organ,
snd porformed their trying parts to the
satisfaction of all. His Lordship
Bishop Sillitoe ably conducted the concert, and played the accompaniments
fur tho solos. Too much praise cannot be given his lordihip for tho care,
timo and attention he has bestowed on
tho Choral Union, and whioh hns borne
such good results. Another concert
is promised before tho season closes
and wo predict for it the greatest success since tho society was organized.

List week iho fishermen who
frequent the peaceful shades of Front
street woro thrown into a utate of
unusual excitement by the public
aunouueemont that Mr. W. II. Vianen
has lust his fish cart. A calamity of
this kind only happens once iu a
ccntuty, and naturally the sensation
was intense. Fishing was practically
suspended for the day and when the
news of tho occurrence reached tho
outlying fishermen thoy quickly drew
in their nets and camo to the city to
offer consolation to their chief. A
fabulous sum was offered by Mr.
Vianen for the recovery of tho cart,
and a rigid search was instituted; but
Boaroh and inquiry alike were in vain.
Tho oxcitement among the fishermen
died out, and u quiet sorrow took its
pluce. Gloomy forebodings concerning
the year's salmon run wore heard on
all sides, nnd many were tho baneful
disasters the loss of the cart prcdictod.
Thero ia nothing in this world like
hard work to relieve a man's mind of
somo great and unnatural depression,
and Mr. Vianen thoroughly realized
this fact. Yesterday morning ho
determined to shake off the despondency, and bo sot to work to rig out a
boat and not to drift for salmon. The
boat was pulled to midstream, and
Mr. Vianen shook out the snowy
folds of the net and aat down to wait.
Gently the boat drifted with tho tide,
tho coaloil can llout bobbed along
serenely and nodded its shiny head to
every passing hatful of wind, and a
grout peace wafted down wilh tho
breeze und settled iu tho fisherman's
heart. His head dropped between Iub
knees and he pondered on tho mutability cf human affairs, tho Parnell
commission nnd tho recent diaaatroua
floods in Patagonia, Waking from
his reverie with a atart tho fisherman waa surprised to find his boat
remained stationary while tho tido
drifted lazily along. What could it
moun? "Fast on a snag" was the answer of his assistant. Thou there was
a hauling at tho net and a terrible lot
of expressive adjectives, and then,
strange to behold,a cartwheel appeared
above tho surface; then the shafts and
soon tho long lost and greatly deplored
cart waa revealed to view with only
tho tailboard missing. Shore was soon
reached and the cart placed on terra
jirma. Then tho largest B.ilmon was
burbacued and the fishermen gathered
from all directions to feast and mako
merry over tho recovery uf the long
lost oart. A line run of salmon is now
predicted for this summer.

in order to mako a few minor amendments The bill waa reported completo
with amendments and will be considered on Tuesday. The report of the so-
loct committoe on standing order and
private bills was read and received.
The house then went went into committee with Mr. Martin in the chair on
tho bill to incorporate the Viotoria
Lumber & Manufacturing Company,
At 6 o'clock the honse roas and adjourned till Tueaday. Before adjourning
it was resolved to hold night sessions on
Wodnesdoy nnd Friday evenings until
the end of the present session
VicToniA, March 19.— The min*
istor of finance moved that tho house
go into committee of supply. In a
clear and lucid speech ho reviewed tho
financial standing of (he province.
Taking revenue for tho year first he
said it would be seen that it is estimated to amount to $699,491, an increase
over the estimated revenue for the
present year of §98,000. Tho principal heads of increase wero: Land
sales, $10,000; timber royalties and
licenses, §10,000; real property, general property, provincial revenue tax,
about $60,000. The increase! are tho
natural result of the increased prosperity of the country. With regard
t.i the expenditure it is Bet down at
$804,351 or §75,595 over the estimates
for thtB year. The principal items of
increase aro: Public works, $36,000;
education, $18,615; administration of
justice, $0000; oivil government salaries and tho administration of justice
nnd salaries of same, $10,400. It was
neceaaary to mnko a number of new
apointmouls to keep pace with the
increasing volume of work in all the
departments, flo referred to tho a-
mount of work now transacted in the
printing office, lands nnd worka department, tho land registry office and
othor departments. He called attention to the libornl expenditure for public works, §277,000, and alao referred
to tho expenditure for education which
was exclusive of tho cost of tho now
school buildings. Hu compared tho
rovenuo for tho present year with that
of previous years showing the increase
to bs over 50 per cent, in 5 years. He
showed how tho work of tho government was being done in an economical
manner in comparison with previous
years. To prove that tho statement
that the government wns running the
country into debt was without tho
slightest foundation, und that the present government waa doing more work
at a less cost than any former administration, ho said that we shall begin
the year, 1st July, 1889, with $263,000
to the good. The revenue would be
§700,000, or a total of $903,000, uud
tho expenditure would bo $863,000,
leaving $100,000 on the right side of
Ihe ledger on 30th June, 1890. This,
he said, will givo amplo moans for
1891. Aftor that tho government will
have easy work beforo thom, as in
that yoar tho cenaus will bo taken and
tho subsidy from the Dominion bo increased under tho head of the per
capita tax by at loust $50,000, nud the
total revenue of tho province will then
reach $950,000. Ho said the net
amount of the dobt of tho province was
$1,416,000, or about $15 per head of
the population, much less iu proportion than in tho oilier provinces. Taxation hore in comparison with the
Australian colonies and tho adjacent
states of tho union was equally low.
Ho would liko to soo n bold effort
mado iu tlie wuy uf making lines of
railway throughout tho province which
would develop our resources if any
work would do so. Beforo closing he
referred to the public accounts fur the
Inst half year as laid before tho house
and said it was a great mistake to publish them aa they wero misleading and
tho custom should bo abolished, It
was impossible to givo a fair showing
oa they do not show tho revenuo due,
ond tho system was mischievous and
liable to do injury.
Mr. Grant, owing to tho illness of
the leader of the opposition, replied.
At 4:30 p. m. the house wont into
committoe nu supply, with Mr. Higgins in tho chair. Votes numbered
one to forty were paaaed, when tho
committeo roso, reported progress, nnd
asked leave to Bit again. The house
thon adjourned till Wednesday afternoon.
