El Paso, Mexico, must have somo
very public spirited ladies. An
item which appeared in a recent
number of one the papers tbero
reads: The fashionable ladies who
engineered the last ball fight netted
$281.53; which they will devote to
the town clock fund.
The newspapers generally appear to
have nnderkaken to reconstruct the
spelling; of the name borne by tbo
member for Cariboo. They call him
Mr. Bernard. As ho is n son of
Mr. llarnunl, the former M. P. for
Yale, B.O;, probably hu takes his
father's name.—Empire,
It iB Btated that Canon ITarrar
has prepared some "Further talks
on eternal punishment," whioh are
soon to be published. It will be
remembered that when he first published his -views upon this subject,
they caused a considerable shock
amongst the orthodox believers.
Carlylo once likened tho smaller
professional politician to "tlie dog
that was drowned last summer, and
that floats up and down the Thames
with ebb and flood. You get to
know him by sight, with a painful
oppression of nose. Daily you -.ee
liim, and daily the odor of him is
getting more intolerable."
An American who recently heard
Bismarck deliver n speech in the
German lleiclistag says : "The old
Chancellor stands without a stoop.
His broad shoulders are very square.
His head is thrown ba.-k upon them.
His fine eyes (his eyes, very large
and piercing, are what one lirst
remarks on seeing Bismarck) glaro
out from under tho shaggy brows as
the Chancellor freest his bitterest
enemy in German politics."
An imperial firman hns, it is reported, been granted for lhe construction of a lino of tramways in
Damascus. Nor is this concession
to western civilization the only sign
that the fur-famed city of Damascus
is on the high road tn becoming
modernized. Gjas als^jpjjf-lie introduced into the city, nnd the iiihubU
hints ate eagerly awaiting tho prom
ist'd innovations, which will, they
believe, not only add lo their own
comfort, but will materially increase
tho value of property within the
city boundaries, The latest estimate
of the population of Damascus places
it ut 150,000.	
The appearance of the latest
English dictionary (reprint), absolutely unabridged, and bound iu
cloth, at the low price of $1.75 a
copy, lets a flood of light on modern
publishing methods. It would seem
impossible to get out the book so
cheaply, with its vast contents, its
Greek and Latin roots, and all its
complicated arrangements of type.
But it was not set up at all. It
wassimply photo-lithographed -.photographs wero taken of the separate
pages and these noxt were mado
into electrotype plates to be printed
on cheap paper and bound together.
Of course the original cost was the
mere trouble of printing the book.
In this way the standard works of
science and fiction are now turned
out at n cost that makes a good
library within the reach of everyone.

tho following: Nine hundred millions for whiskey ! Do wo comprehend tho vnstness of this sum 1 I

Vnnderbilt died he left, it is snid
$200,000,000. But this, nation's
liquor bill—useless nnd devilish—is
more than four-fold greater In a
single year, than was the wealth of
the richest man on the continent.
In standard silver dollars piled up
on top nf one another, \ .indorbilt's
wealth would reach a height of '155
miles. Multiply this by four nnd a
half nnd you have the dizzy height
to which you must pile up tho dollars

a mad nation's monument to viuo

the earth into the sky 1,600 miles <

Pigott Gives Evidence Before tho
Parnell Commission which
Canses a Sensation.
Several years ago an artist of
Dresden persuaded a lo.-ksmith
there to givo up his trade and
become an artists' model. It whs a
good thing for the locksmith, who is
now the famous "muscle man of
Dresden," whose magnificently
developed body makes him probably
the most renowned model in the
world. In order to preservo for
futuro artists an exact duplicate of
his extraordinary figure the direotor
of the Royal Saxon Povzellanfabrik
at Meissen recently invited him
there that a cast from life might be
taken of tho upper part of his body.
It iB said that "his muscular development is so complete and detailed
that even the least and slightest
cord of every muscle stands forth
prominently, and his whole body
looks as if it were woven together
or plaited like basket work. His
muscles have such a hardness that
they feel to the touch as if they
were carved in wood."

said that England would take part in
the conference with Germany and the
United Stales In refereuce to affairs in
Samoa. The conference would take
place at Berlin and would be a continuation of the conference on the samo
matter, which waa begun at Washington. The address continued: "In view
of the increased'expenditures for warlike preparations of other nations it is
necessary for us to increase the precautions hitherto taken for tho safety
of our shores and the protection of our
commerce. Our relations with foreign
powers aro at present friendly, but I
have no right to assume this condition
is impossible of change. Your attention will be asked at an earl; date for
measures tending to develop the material resources nf Ireland, and for
amending the'constitution of the various tribunals having special jurisdiction ovor tho real property of Ireland.
Recent enactments made by your honorable body for restoring order and
confidence in England have already
been productive of salutary results. A
measure for restoring gold coinage to a
satisfactory condition will be submitted
to you. Measures regarding minus
local subjects will also bo submitted."

AN  UPSET PROMISED.
London, Feb. 21.—Gladstone, re-
fui ring tn the Parnell case last ninht,
said: "We are now on the eye of exploding a vast fabrication of iniquity."
Joseph R. Cox, nationalist member of
parliament, in the course of a speech,
said that startling disclosures were
about to be mado before Iho Parnell
commission which would completely
upset the Times.
pioott's   evidence,
London, Feb. 21.—Upon resuming
tho session of tho Parnell commission
to-day Pigott was placed in the witness
box. The witness Baid Eugene Davis
told him lhe "F. B." was bound to
Parnell not to interfere with his movements until a certain period. Davis
gave the principal facts for tho pamphlet exposing the plots. Pigott said
Morris and Murphy told him white in
Paris he had found fivo or six of
Egan's letters, some of Parnell's, and
aome old documents in a bag. Pigott
made a memoranda of the letters. Ho
then identified six nf Egan's and five
of Parnell's, incliidim. a fac-similo
printed by tho Times. Mr. Piaott,
continuing, said he bought the second
batch of letters from Tom Brown, and
secured them after going through tho
ceremony of taking an oath of secrecy
boforo tho tribunal of fivo. Tho third
batch of letters was bought of a mun
whose name was unknown lo the witness. The oath was taken as before,
and the prioe Agreed upon wu paid ln
each case. He declared he never released Houston from the obligation of
secrecy. Pigott acknowledged he
mado a statement which Mr. Lewis,
the distinguished counsel, had taken

wrote to ArchbiBhop Walsh, offering
to expose the whole conspiracy. Tho

London, Feb. 20. Tho Scotland
yard officials have received information
leading tu the general belief in polico
circles that the "Invinoibles" ore engaged in perfecting the dotails of a most
desperate plot to murder several of the
high officials of tho government. So
circumstantial are the stories poured
into tho ears of the police officials that
evon Lord Salisbury is impressed with
the belief of their genuineness, and
notwithstanding his persistent refusal
hitherto to permit himself to bo guarded by officers he was to-day placed
under the protection of the police.
PARNELL COMMISSION.
London, Feb, 20.—Houston, in his
evidence, said that Pigott told him to
whom several of tho letters were addressed. He did not regard Pigoti's
statements as a very rare occurrence,

.Notes of Pigolt'a conversation with
Eui-ono Davis wero then read. In
these notes it appeared that I_Ij.au told
Davis that in Paris in 1881, Parnell,
O'Kelly, Dillon, Brennan uud Hams
had agreed that England's puwer could
be neutralized only by tho removal of
her lending men. After Parnell's arrest Egati urged iho Fenians to activity. Eg'iu was invariably consulted
as to the projected murders. Egnn

was a plot to murder the Pnnco of

He waa conspicuously well dressed nud

that he was a member of the supreme

a member of the supreme council uf

Ireland were sold in 1879 to a company

carry very rich ore, he thinks there
aro onlyafew that will prove remunerative to tho owners. The formation
is peculiar, and it is difficult to determine its exact character. The festive "jumper'' is on the lookout for

is succeeding in his purposes in many

Following is tliu resolution which
was movod by Sir Richard Cartwright in tho house of commons nnd
discussed on .Monday niglit hist,
when it wns rejected by n party
voto of 91 to 60:
"Resolved, Unit it lias becomo a mat-
tor of extreme importance to tho well
being of the people of the Dominion tlmt
the government nnd parliament of Canada should acquire the power of negotiating commercial treaties with foreign
states, That an humble address bo presented to her majesty, praying that she
will empower hor representative, the
governor-general of Canada, acting by
and with the advice of tlie queen's privy
council of Canada, to enter, by agent or
representative of Canada, into direct
communicatiiui with any foreign state
for tho purpose of negotiating commercial arrangements tending to the advantage of Canada, subject to the prior consent or subsequent approval of the parliament of Canada signified by act."
The voto, it will be seen, was not n
full ono of the house by a good deal
—the total'membership being 215.
If nil the members had been present
and voted, tho majority against the
resolution would liavo been still
larger. However, us the resolution
was n party one, and received a
party vote, there is uot a great deal
of significance in tho fact that even
GC in the house of commons were
found to favor Sir Richard's motion.
It must be apparent to everyone
that observes the deference with
which Canada is treated by Great
Britain in nil treaties negotiated by
the latter with foreign states, affecting the former, and tlie share which
Canada has in such transactions,
that the Dominion practically enjoys
the treaty making power, and, what
is a very necessary accompaniment
—the power, through her connection
with Great Britain, of having her
troaty rights respected nnd enforced.
Canada by herself would havo a big
contract enforcing her treaties. The
United States, with it9 sixty million to our six, h is its bonds more
thau full to maintain its national
dignity abroad. Canada don't want
to get bumptious yet n while. Her
connection with the mother country
is a source of mutual strength,
advantage, and dignity. Long may
it subsist and the bonds be cemented,
rather than severed   or   weakened.
Simeon  Jones,  Esq.,   Dominion
commisssoner   to   South  America,
more especially   to  the   Argentine
Republio and Uruguay,   has   submitted an interesting report to  the
Dominion government, by whom he
was commissioned in January, 1888,
to visit tho countries mentioned, for
tho purpose of making inquiries and
of  extending and  developing  tho
trade   relations   of   thoso countries
with   Canada.   Mr. Simeon Jones
reports that; in pursuance of his instructions, he left Halifax  on Feb.
11), 1888, and proceeded to Englnnd,
where ho obtained from tho Marquis
of Salisbury letters of introduction
to tho ministers, resident in London,
of the Argentine Republic, the  Republic of Uruguay, and the Empire
of Brazil, from whom  he obtained
letters of introduction to tho foreign
ministers of those countries. Armed
with these, ho sailed from   England
on March 9, and arrived nt   Buenos
Ayres, tho capital of the Argentine
Republic, on April 8, 1888.   Hero
Mr. Jones got his eye3 opened.   He
found Bucno3 Ayres to be a city of
about 450,000 inhabitants, and one
of tho busiest cities he had overseen
in proportion to its population.    Its
internal and foreign trado ho found
to bo immense,    its inhabitants had
increased   at   the   rate of   50,000
por year during tho last four years,
and there seemed to bo no practical
limits   to   a steady growth iu thnt
country   for   mnny years to come.
Mr. Jones was very kindly recoived
in tho South American   metropolis,
and welcomed boili by   the  leading
men nnd tho press.    With regard to
the   latter  lie   says:    "There  nro
twenty-three daily newspapers pub
Hshed in tho city, two of which are
printed in English, one in   French,
ono in Italian, ono in German,   and
the   remainder in the Spanish language, and thoy seemed to vie with
each other in expressing their desire
for tho Buccesa of my mission,   Tho
press of the Argentine Republic is
in a very advanced state,"   Speaking   of   the city further, Mr. Jones
says:   "During the year  1887, permits were taken out for the erection
of upwards of seven hundred   buildings.   I saw upwards of 1,200 ships
and   vessels   lying   at ono timo in
the   Barracas,   a harbor of Buenos
Ayres, nnd this number I   learned
was a fair average one of the vessels
and ships that at one time would bo
loading  or  unloading in this port,
and this was in addition to the mail
steamers which lio outside  and   do
not go into the   Barracas,   Buenos
Ayres has the iine^i and moBt  ox-
tensive system of street railways in
proportion to its sizo of any eity in
America.    They   run to all parts of
the   oity   and   in every diroction."
Referring to the country itself, Mr.
Jones says:   "Tho population of the
. Argentine Republio ;s about 4,500,-
000, and consists of about two-thirds
native persons (ind one-third Italians,
Spaniards, French,  English, Ger
mans, Swiss and other nationalities
difficult to enumerate. Tho Argentine Republic extends over 35 degrees of latitude and 20 of longitude.
It is bounded on the west by Chili,
on the northwest by Bolivia, on tho
north by Bolivia and Paraguay, on
the cast by Brazil, Uruguay nud the
Atlantic Ocean, and on the south
by Chili and tho Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The immigration into
the Republic is about 120,000 persons per year, and, beyond question,
will continue in increasing proportions, The government of Argentine is now making a strong effort
to obtain immigrants from the north
of Europe; the larger number of immigrants hitherto having been from
Italy, and whilst these latter persons
arc industrious, frugal and reliable
ns workers, a large number of them
do not identify themselves with tho
country, but seek to, nnd do, return
homo as soon as they mako a few
thousands of dollars, thereby enabling them to live comfortably in
their own country. The Republic
of Argentine cover? about 1,212,000
square miles, or an area equal to
that of Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Italy and
Spain together. The greater part of
this country is an immense plain.
This plain includes in the south the
region of the Pampas nnd in the
nortii tho larger portion is a vast
tract, called the Gran Chaco, a
succession of grassy plains of the
highest natural fertility. It possesses a larger quantity of good land
in proportion to its size than does
any other country I have ever
visited and of which I have any
knowledge. It is largely a prairie
country similar to tho Canadian
Northwest, and this alluvial plain or
prairie extends for upwards of two
thousand miles backward into tho
country from Buenos Ayres. The
land consists of about two feet of
black mould on a substratum of clay
aud is fertile beyond anything that
has ever come under my observation.
In a large part of the country they
can tako two crops a yoar from the
land, and farming, stock raising,
wool growing and meat producing is
the principal business of tho republic. Tho number of sheep owned
in the republic is about 100,000,000,
and this number vast as it is wilt go
on increasing. Upwards of 35,000,-
000 acres of land aro occupied as
sheep farms. There nre more than 30,-
000,000 head of cattle in the country,
with upwards of 5,000,000 horses."
Mr. Jones gives as'ono of the reasons why Canada hasnotpnrticipatcd
in tho Argentine lumber business as
largely as it has been capable of
doing, is that lumber intended for
the markets of tho republic requires
to bo procured and prepared for
thoso markets from tho stump until
iinilly shipped, A marked peculiarity ot the Argentine people, he
says, is that they adhere with great
tenacity of purpose to any ideas
they now have, nnd if they are accustomed to an article of any givon
character or dimensions they are
unwilling to purchase goods of a different character or dimensions, although the latter articles might suit
their purposes just as woll ns tho
former. They will not, as a rule,
purchase a promiscuously cut cargo,
bnt requiro tho lumber of particular dimensions. For tho information of persons in or desiring to go
into this special lumber business,
Mr. Jones furnishes in his report
valuable tables, Jce, After giving
much interesting information about
Uruguay and Brazil, ns well as the
Argentine Republic, Mr. Jones concludes his report as follows: "I nm
deeply impressed with tho idea that
if an attempt be made (and I think
it should bo made) to develop trade
between Canada and Soutli America,
the Dominion should have at least
one representative there, whose duty
it should be to study tho trade of
tho South American countries and
report at least onco a year to the
Canadian government as to the
state, tendency and probnble volume
of businoss and other things connected therewith, in order that tho
merchants and manufacturers of
Canada might have continually beforo them the requisite information
to deal intelligently with all trade
questions between the Dominion and
South America. This duty is now
performed by the British consuls in
Soutli America for tho people of
Great Britain, and it has been a
great factor in enabling British merchants and manufacturers to take
the advanced position in South
American comnierco that they now
hold, It should bo arranged that
suoh representative should not permanently reside in ono place, but
travel from city to city at different
times during each year, reporting as
frequently as neod bo to tho government in tliis country upon the matters given him in charge, which reports should be given to tho public
as soon as possible after being submitted to tho governor-genernl-in-
council." By the Dominion estimates to hand, wo obsorve that the
government have decided to grant a
subsidy of 860,000 for a line of
steamships to ply between Halifax,
St, John, tho West Indies, nnd
South America.

dmhlttfl FACTS-ABOUT OPALS.
Whero tha Finest Specimens ol
the Gem Are Obtained
-Tho Minna of Honduras and Hungary-Tho
Famous -Ring of the Komun Senator
Nonius— popular Superstitions At-
taotied to the Charming Stone*
Tho records regarding old opal mines aro
lost, but it is supposed that tho ancients derived their supply from Arabia and Syria,
says a writer lu the San Francisco Chronicle. Tho famous Hungarian mines wore)
not discovered until lato in tho fifteenth
century, and were, of courae, unknown to
tho Romans. The principal mines from
whence opals aro obtained to-day aro situated In Hungary nnd Honduras. Tho
American opal looks tbe hardness of the
Hungarian gem, but it is fully as brilliant
and withstands atmospheric inroads upon
tho colors quite as well. The magnificent
characteristic of the -gem, which gives it]
vidua and renown, is the brilliant combination of colored reflections which it displays,
and when tho stone is held ia tho sunlight,
tho Latin philosopher was correct in stat-j
ing that it was mode up of the glories of the|
most precious stones.
Tho gem is found not only in porcelain
earth but also in fissures and seams of old
igneous rocks. Quartz, when flawed fn the |
interior, sometimes exhibits a remarkable
iridescence, and resembles tbe opal especially whon viewed at a distance. Such specimens uiecalled iris. Theelegant irisorna-
incuts worn by tho Empress Josephine were
of remarkable briUiancy and tho wonder
and envy of the Imperial court. Sbe also
possessed the finest opal of modern times,
which was only displayed when arrayed Inj
all tho grandeur of full Imperial splendor.
Ib w*ts indeed a fitting ornament for sc
beautiful a woman. Its flashing rays of
light wero so powerful and vivid as to give
the appearance of Uvingflames of fire, and
from tbat it received its title "Ltncendir de
Troie"—Uieburntoffof Troy. Tho late of
tho gem is unknown, but with tho history
of the fair owner tho most casual reader is
familiar. •«■•,.
Empress Eugenie had a superstitious
drond, amounting to positive aversion, for
tho beautiful opal, and tho stone was a
stranger at the brilliant court. It is possible that Eugenie may have, been Influenced in her hatred of tho gem from
Josephine's fondness for the same, and attributed to the mysterious workings of the
fiery mineral some subtle, malign influence that conspired to bring about hor |
downfall. But the fact remains inscribed
upon tho pages of history that, although the
opal was rigorously banished from Versailles and tho Tuillerles, Eugenie fled from
Paris under cover of darkness, cowering
with terror In tbo dusty depths of n sliabby
vehicle, as the roar of a raging populace
reached hor ears.      *■>*■* 4
The' famous opal of history waa that
■which was worn In a ring by the Roman'
Senator Nonius in the days of the Triumvirate. Its sizo scarcely exceeded that of a
hazel nut, yot Its beauty and brilliancy
rondercd it a marvel among tho dilettanti
of Rome, and it was valued at nearly $1,-
000,000. Marc Antony, bearing fn mind the
sacrifice of Cleopatra's Incomparable pearl,
and hi ill enslaved by the Egyptian Queen's
Irresistible charms, made overtures for the
opal, intending to present it to the dusky
beauty; but Nonius refused to part with his
cherished gem, and sought safety in flight
The extreme beauty and charm may bel
estimated whon it la known that to ai
Roman banishment was worse than death.
History makes no furthor; mention of this
wonderful opal It baa disappeared from,
ihe world's collection of gems, and itsj
glories havo probably yielded to the dc-
Etrui-iivo effects of time.
Tho firo opal is found in its greatest perfection in tbe porphyritio rocks at Ziraapan.
Mexico. Itls generally of a hyacinth red
color, and gleams forth with flashes ol!
brilliant carmine, with yellow and green:
Bcintiilutioua. Tho Mexican production surpluses all other varieties in the iutcnsitj
and gorgcousness of Its hues, but It will not
bear exposure, and the sensitive surface
soon loses its flashing beauties. They bring
exorbitant prices iu Mexico when sold to thej
unwary, who learn all too aoon, upon returning to tho haunts of civilisation! that
they had paid nearly fifty per cent too
muoh for tho gems. Tho Spanish historians,
In tholr marvelous stories of the wonders!
seen in Mexico at the timo of the conquest,!
describe the image of the mystlo idol Quet-
galcoatl (god of tho air), on the great pyramid of Choiula, as wearing a miter waving
with plumes of fire, and wbloh was supposed to havo been produced by masses of
tho firo opal.
• Tho colors displayed by tho opal embrace
all the tints in the solar spectrum. Tho
shades of green, blue, yellow and red aro
vivid and clear. The purchase of opals in
tbo rough, natural state is hazardous as a
speculation, for frequently after having left
the hands ot the lapidary tho stone has becomo a transparent huoless Btonc. Thoi
Central American opal in numerous in-|
stances has been known to fado and gradually lose nil brilliancy.
Tho grandest specimen of tho gem ever
discovered was unearthed ln the mines of j
Hungary in 1770, aud purchased by the Aus-,
tnaii Government Its weight was seventeen ounces, and it was three and three-
quarter inches in length. It rests tn the
Imperial cabinet at Vienna, aud ia valued
ut§300,000. The opal is not sold by weight
but its value depends upon its size and the
intensity of Ub fire and combination of
colors. An opal half an inch In diameter
may havo a valuo of five dollars, and another, no larger, but possessing brilliancy of
lines, may sell readily for 15,000 or mora
Oue of the prettiest combinations in tho
jowoler'snrt Is the opal surrounded with
diamonds. The foolish prejudice and dark
superstitions are rapidly dying out and the
value of the gem, wbloh had reached low-
water mark during Its banishment has increased iully thirty per cent During the
last two years tho trade and demand in tho
gem havo increased at a rapid paco, and ten
limes aa many opals are imported now as
during the preceding decade.
Fifteen yeara ego the popularity of thej
stono began to wane, until scarcely one wasl
to be scon at a fashionable gathering. Many
ladies who wero above being swayed by bu-
SersUtlous fancies admitted they held in-
oflnnble prejudices against tbo flery,
gloaming combination. It is tho jewel of
October, and all born in that month may
safely stiflo all fears they may entertain regarding it, and wear thoopal with Impunity,
An Amusing Imbroglio, j
"A somewhat amusing Imbroglio connected with forged bank-notes Ib making
tbo Hungarians merry," says tho Vienna
corivspondent oftho London Times, "A
•.hor timo ago a gang of men, supposed to
bo : '.-gors of bank-notes, was arrested at
Btr -welsaonburg, and the tribunal of that
to.vi. pent abundle of tholr false notes tothe
com; of justice at Budapest) before whioh
tho prisoners wore to be tried. By some
bUi.rti'jr the notes were forwarded to the
tax office as genuine, and the tax offlco
pin thom in circulation, ABa consequence
Iho prisoners had to bo acquitted on that
(rial for want of proof. They now intend,
it Ij said, to huo tno Hungarian Government!
for their money, arguing tbat tho genuineness of tho notes has been sufficiently established by tholr circulation through thej
tax offlco. It ought to be explained that In
this country, where tho currency is paper,!
nobody ovor thinks of tailing tho number]
of a bank-note,"	
flbow-lVlntlow Diiplayi,
A well-known Boston detectivo says of
tho displays ln our show-windows: "It may
look queer, but it is true, that tho stores
whioh have largo exhibitions in their show-
windows do more toward educating young
boys to steal than any thing else, The
reason of this Ib that largo crowds, mostly
women, gather about tho windows to look
at tho displays. Well, a young gamin
cornea along and sees a pocket-book pro*
trudiug out of a woman's pooket and the
temptat lou is so great tbat ho sneaks un behind Iter nud steals tho wallet. Maybe

HINTS FOR  EMERGENCIES.
How to Act lu Oases of Accident and Sudden Ulnes!.
Sir W. Moore, lato Burgeon-General with
tho Government of Bombay, has a paper iu
tho Hospital on "The Immediate Treatment
of Accident and Sudden Illnesi," In which
ho stall's that only the other day ho was
passing Kensington Gardens, when ho observed an old man being supported by two
other persons, and encouraged to cling lu
the railings, bo as to maintain an upright
posture. A glanco showed what waB tlio
matter with tho old man. Ho had beon
strucli by cardiac failure, or serious apoplexy, or that variety of tho malady in
which thofacoispalo, and tho circulation
of the blood failing. His pulse was, fcublo
and intermittent, anil thero was' evident
paralysis on one sido of the body. Now,
what ought to liavo been dono in su*:h n
case I The poor old man should have been
laid on ngbj. side full length, his collar
should havo been opened, ho should havo
been allowed plenty of fresh air, and his
logg, fret and hands should havo been well
rubbed. Then, when tho first shock ot the
malady had passed away, ho ought to hnvo
been carried, still in tho recumbent posture,
to tho ticarust hospital. Again, another in*
stance. Only a fow days baok, In tho Ham-
mersini-.li road, two boys wero knocked
down by a aub, Ono escaped with littlo In-
jury, tho olhor got concussion of tho brnlu
Ho was almost flensoless, speechless, co'.d
nud pallid. Tho same plan ought to havo
been pursued as in the case of the old i_.i_.l_li ;
but instead of this, tho boy was surrounded by a dense crowd of inquisitive
people, and one good but mistaken Samaritan was supporting the injured youtli iu nn
upright position on his knee. After n trine
tho poor boy was dragged away on his
legs, being well Bhaken and jostled in Iho
process. Yet a third instance. In Hyde
Park, ono recent Sunday, a person was
taken In an epiicptto fit Ono bystander
wisely ran for water; others carried tho
epileptic to a benoh, on whlqh ho was seated.
Now, in epilepsy there is a great struggling,
tho limbs aro convulsed, and tho tongue is
vory liablo to be protruded between the
teeth and severely bitten. This accident
should be guarded against by placing something, as a small piece of soft wood, too
large to slip into the mouth, between tlio
teeth; nnd the person should bo simply prevented injuring himself in his struggles until tha fit passes away. But nothing of tho
kind was attempted; the consequence being
that the tonguo was bitten, and tho llmbi of
tho epileptic were bruised against tho hard
wood of tho bench on which he was seated
and hold. Had ho been placed on tho soft
grass nnd loft alone ho would havo injured
himself less.
Tho following are rules wldch may be
safely adopted in cases ot accident and sudden illness. Place tho person on the
ground or floor lying toward the right side,
and with the hoad raised to tho level of the
body by a pillow, folded coat or other soft
substance. Then unbutton or split open
any clothing pressing upon tho neck or
chest. Tho faco and chost should bo
sprinkled with cold water, and sonic cold
water mny ba given to drink if the power
of swallowing remains. Wlno, brandy or
otber liquor should not bo hastily given
without evidence of their being needed. Examine tho head and limbs separately.
The prominent parts of the limbs may bo
oxamincd with very littlo movement of the
body. If it is necessary to move a person
after uny injury, especially of tho head, tho
person ahould bo carried whilo lying down.
Ho should not be allowed to sit upright in u
vehicle or to walk. Soo that tho person is
allowed plonty of fresh air. Tho history of
tho accident should bo obtained, and wncn
sending for a surgeon tho message should
bo as clear as possible, and, if practicable, a written ono.
Tho most common maladies which occur
suddenly to peoplo In tho streets of largo
towns nro apoplcctio nnd epileptic ut-
tncks, maladies depending on heart affections, nnd drunken fits, although, perhaps,
tbe latter should uot be clusscd under the
head maladies. But itls necessary to distinguish apoplexy and epilepsy from "dead
drunk,'' as It is called, and also poisoning
by opium. Apoploxy is known from epilepsy by tho puffing or snoring breathing
which occurs In tho former malady. In epilepsy there is uo struggling, of tho limbs,
tho oyes arc turned up under the lids, so
that tho whites only are visible, aud tho
person generally falls down with aloud cry,
none of which nro tho symptoms of apoplexy. Apoploxy is to be distinguished
from affections due to tho heart, because in
tho latter maladies tbo symptoms arc very
similar to fainting. Tho person is pale, unconscious, with feeble pulse, scarcely perceptible breathing, white lips and a deathlike expression of countenance; while in
apoploxy, though tho person is unconscious,
thoro is snoring or puffing breathing, aad
tlio faco is oftou drawn to ono side. Apoplexy is best distinguished from tho effects
of spirituous liquors by tho history of tho
case, whtch may probably bo ono of drinking. Secondly, by tho smell of liquor in the
person's breath; although this ih not n certain' sign, for somo ono may, in mistaken
kindness, havo given tho person struck with
apoplexy somo kind of liquor. Thirdly, iu
the " drunken fit" the size of tho pupils of
tho eyes ia equal, whilo iu apoplexy ono is often larger than tho
other. By tho pupils of tho eyes Is
meant tlio round space in tho center of tho
dark part of tho eye. Fourthly, the person
"dead drunk" may generally be roused,
whon ho babbles incoherently, whilo from
apoplexy tho person can not bo roused,
Lastly, if any movements occur in drunkenness they will bo of tho limbs, whereas
movement is usually restricted to ono sido
of tho body in apoplexy. From poisoning
by opium apoplexy Is best distinguished by
tho history of tho case: by tho smell of
opium in the breath; by both pupils of tho
oyes being very small and contracted; by
the fact that tho patient may be roused, although he does not then babble as in iho
drunken fit, but immediately goes to sleep
again.
If all that has been advanced can not bo
held In recollection tho condensed rules
may certainly be remembered, viz.: First,
|n all cases of accident or sudden Illness let
tho person lio down, ond do not assist him
to maintain the upright posture; secondly,
lot him havo plenty of frosh air; thirdly,
unloose all clothing round tho neck uud
chost; fourthly, convey the patient, still in
tho recumbent poiition, to tho nearest
hospital. Stretchers for tbls purpose ought
to bo available at known points, or at least
at overy polico station.	
American Weapons of War,
Tbo Fiji Shimpo strongly advisos Japan to
go to America for weapons of war. "While
tho peoplo of Europe on tho ono sido aro
crouching ready to spring at each other's
throats, and on thoctber tho nations of Asia
are barely maintaining their independence,
the United States," It says, "continues moving forward in a steady, unvarying- lino of
progress and prosperity. Their people
seem headless of whut occurs in other parts
pf tho world; but they aro not bo in reality,
for they do not fail to turn to good account
the prevailing combative mood of other civilized nations. Full of inventive genius
find rich In capital, they bave been enabled
fo take practically the load In tbo maim fact-
uro of arms and other appliances of wat>,
Tho men-of-war constructed by thom lately
havo evoked the admiration of Europe; tbo
dynamite gun is a prcductof tho States, and
they are well ahead in the manufacture of
torpedo-boats and torpedoes."

handsomely illustrated catalogue issued by Wm. Hennie, tho,well-known
seedsman of Toronto, and it is certainly one of the most complete publications which has reached us this seaBon.
Mr. Reimie offers a general list of
vegetable, tlower and agricultural seed,
sued grain and potatoes, and in addition to a largo collection of standard
varieties, has a number of sterling
novelties, which are worthy of a trial
from our patrons. The catalogue will
be mailed free tu all upon application
to William Rennio, Toronto.
Tlie (iesirgiii Minstrels played in
Vancouver last night, and the News
has the following to say of the performance: "Hurt's opera house was
filled to the top of the rear seats last
night and Richard & Pringlo'a combination had a most successful evening,
Billy Kersand, Ooerge Jackson, Mallory Brothers, and other minstrel stars
gave u varied entertainment of song,
dialogue and dance, whioh evidently
highly pleased the audience. The
oompany plays again this evening,
- when a still larger house is expected
and nn entirely now programme promised. One of the chief features of Billy
Keraand's acting is his mouth," which
tho News describes in verse ns something tremendous.
Look Oot Fon It,—If you are troubled with a cold or cough, however light
the attack, look out for it; do not allow
it to settle on tho' lungs; break up the
cough by loosening the tough phlegm
with Hagyard's Pectoral Balaam.

A Coincidence.
On the same day (Jau 20.) that Mr.
and Mrs. W. D. Ferris, uf this city,
celebrated the 00th anniversary of
their marriage, Mr and Mrs. James
Hplliday, of Perth, Ont., celebrated
their golden wodding under almost
similar circumstances. The coincidence is worth noting as it seomB
rather Btrango that two couples married probably in the same hour 50
years ago should livo to celebrate the
event half a century later. Mr. Ferris
will write to Mr. Hulliday congratulating him on the auBpieious event,
Georgia .11 In wire Is.
The famous, great and only Georgia
Minstrels, numbering twenty performers, opened last night at the
Avenue to standing loom only. Tho
gallery wns densely packed and hundreds of tho constituents uf that part
uf the house, were turned away. Of
the performers, to any it was pleasing
and artistically acceptable in overy ro-
Bpect, is but a reecho of tho general
opinion of tho large audience, expressed by frequent applause. Heading tho
list of this coterio of colored artists,
is Billy Kersands of national fame.
Hilly Kersands is thu very impersonation of unaduloratcd fun, and never
fails to keep up with tho procession.
Uoo, Jackson is a must pleasing comedian, of the Charley Reed ordor. The
Crescent City Quartette aro another
feature, which together with the host
of other specialty people, combine to
make a great show. Messrs. Richards
& I'rinylo nro to bo congratulated on
their company whicli Manager Lowdon
of the Avonuti made a happy hit in
booking,—The Daily News, Neu: Orleans.

A live, healthy lizard, measuring
five inches, was drawn from tlie city
water pipes on Monday afternoon by
a youug lad named Clark. The boy
is employed at Clark and Tuvpol's
ship yard and wan aent to the E, & N.
station to carry over u bucket of water
for the workmen. Tho boy was surprised to see a large lizard flopping
around in the bucket. Ho brought
the reptile to the Times office in n preserve jar j but tho reporter was not
surprised. JF he brought along a
whale from the lake iu a preserve jar
his eyes would have been opened. Or
if tho lizard could speak and inform
him that it took a trip from Elk Lake
to the E. &. N. station to protest
against the price of coal, then he could
truly Bay that wonders will never
cease ; but ill these days of libel suits
and high prices ono requires something
out uf the ordinary to bring an exclamation uf astonishment from the careworn and much pestered ropnrter of a
Victoria journal, Thu lizard will be
killed and dried for thu benefit uf our
starving Indians and the preserve jar
will find a pluce in om- larder when
the fruit ripens In the summer time.—

The llaifimlc hall.
The Masonic ball which took plico
last night in Herring's Opera House,
under tho auspices of Union Lodge
No. 1) A. F. & A. M., is now a thing
of the paat, but it will livo in memory
aa tho moBt successful ball over given
in Westminster. The affair was expected to bo a succe?a and something
better than the Royal City had over
furnished before, and every anticipation was realized. From beginning tu
end the management of tho ball was
faultless. It was a complete triumph
to its promoters and a credit to tho
Craft, The interior of tho opera houso
waa scarcely recugnizablu, so great was
tho change wrought in its appearance
by tho judicious and artistic use of
evergreens, flags, mirrors, etc. Tho
walls were handsomely ornamented with
Masonic emblems, tho Squaro and
Compass shining out conspicuously,
while large mirrors, iu which a lady
could view herself from any part of tho
room, wero arranged at close intervals,
i'estuons of evorgreeus and bunting
alsu draped the walls in artistic folds.
Suspended from tlwcoiling and stretch-
green ropes, at the intersection of which
ing diagonally across were two ever-
hung a massive "G," a symbol of the
Craft. Thu gallery had been converted
into a handsome dressing room for tho
ladies, but the ornamentation it had
undergone completely disguised its
identity. Tho boxes were converted
into card rooms where those who did
not caro to join in the dance (night indulge in a quiet rubber of whist.
About half past eight cu-riagns commenced to arrive and l.y 0 o'clock
fully 150 couples were in thu opera
house. At 0:16 the musicians stiuck
up a grand march and n procession was
formed which circled the entire room.
Tlio march was headed by Deputy
Grand Master Olute and Mrs. Hendry.
After moving round lhe room several
times nets were formed and the first
quadrille commenced. The sots of
honor were arranged as follows;
Deputy Grand Master Clute,
The Lady Mayoress.
Mayor Hendry,
Mrs, Cluto.
Mr. CharloBon,
Mrs. Hoy.
Mr. Thos. Mowat,
Miss Dockerill.
No. 2.

Mrs, Charleson,

Tho sceno from the gallery while
this and following dances woro iu progress, was brilliant iu the extreme.
The beautiful costumes of the ladies,
tho rich insignia worn by (ho grand
officers, and the conventional evening
dress worn by every gentleman present, mingling hither and thither in orderly confusion to tho sweet strains of
tho music, was a plcturo such as Westminster never beforo witnessed. In
many instances the costumos aud jewels worn by the ladies wero rich and
costly, and would do honor to a state
ball.
Shortly before midnight supper was
announced by tho master of aero*
motiioa, Mr. Peter Grant. Plates were
laid for 150 peoplo. The supper was
prepared under the direction of Mr.
Pitlier of tho Colonial, and wbb everything that could be desired. The
tables were handsomely laid and the
attendance was excellent. The menu,
longer than we can find space for,
contained every ediblo and  delicacy j
purchasable, and it was a subject of
general remark that the cmNmc was
uncommonly good. During the progress of supper a series of extra dances
went on, and being principally waltzes,
the younger people kept to the flour
leaving the brilliance of the scatio undiminished. When tho programme
was resumed the dances followed in
quick succession, but it waa net till
4 o'clock that the strains of "God
Savo the Queen" announced to tho assemblage that it was necessary to return "from refreshment to labor."
Tho music, which was furnished by
Reynold's band, of Vancouver, was
really good, and deserves special mention. Tho Vancouver brethern, with
their wives and sweethearts, woro well
represented, and thoir presence added
more than a little to tlicsuccesj of the
ball.
Tho committee of management, ably
directed by Mr. Charleson, performed
their duties perfectly, and it retlocts
groat credit on these gentlemen to
note that so admirably wero the
numerous details arranged thut not n
deficiency was observed during the
whole night. Thu committee is indebted to Messrs. Wintemuto Bros,
for the uso of many articles required
to furnish the ball room.
