■'Good gracious, man, there's a saloon
in tlie basement, and you can get into it on Sunday by going down tho

The Sunday closing movements is
spreading from trade to trade in
Philadelphia. From the barbers
and the laundry mon it has now extended to the bakers, most of whom
now do considerable work upon Sunday. Tho bakers have determined
to appeal to the legislature of Pennsylvania to pass a law prohibiting
tho opening of bakeries on  Sunday.
After-dinner orator, quoted by a
London paper: "It's the wonderful insight inter 'union nature that
Dickens gets the pull over Thackeray ; but on t'other hand it's in the
brilliant shafts of satire, t'gether
with a keen sense o' humor, that
Dickery gets the pull over Thackens.
It's just this: Thickery is a humorist and Dackens is a satirist. But,
after all, its 'bsurd to instoot any
comparison betweon Dackery and
Thickens." So nono were "instoot-
ed." 	
Tho great 'Eiflel towor of Paris is
likely to be outdone, In anticipation of the exposition to bo held in
America in 1892, Oharles Hinkel,
an architect of Washington, has prepared plans for a tower 1500 feet
high, being 500 feet higher than the
celebrated Eiffel tower. It is said
that the dome on the cupola at the
lowest part will bo 2G0 feot high
and 2N0 feet in diameter. Around
tho foot of tho towor iron buildings
(ire to ho erected for exhibition and
other purposes.
"It is not intellectual work that
injures the brain/' says tho London
Hospital, "but emotional excitement.
Most men can stand tho severest
thought or study of which their
brains aro capable, and be none the
worse for it; for neither thought nor
study interferes with the recuperative influence of sloep. It is ambition, anxiety and disappointment,
the hopes and fears, the loves and
hates of our lives, that wear out our
nervous system and endanger tho
balance of the brain."

If the Black Diamond, as now
appears, deliberately violated the
proclamation, she will be confiscated
and her officers punished, no matter
what the consequence may be,—
Chicago Tribune, Very fierce and
determined this is, comments tho
Globe. It would not have sounded
nearly so fine to say: "If the Black
Diamond deliberately violated the
proclamation sho will havo fifty
sealskins stolen from her aud be
compelled to givo a free trip to an
experienced American seaman."
But that is what really happened.
Mr, De Young, editor of the San
Francisco Chronicle, and California
commissioner to the Paris exhibition,
has returned from Europe, and reports as follows concerning the showing mado by tho United States
there: "To think that our government was the only one that recognized the Exposition officially, and
yet we have only 90,000 Bquare ft.,
while little Belgium, that refused to
recognized tho Exposition officially,
has 150,000, and England 243,000
square feet. It was simply negligence on the part of our commissioners. If they had been thero and
pushed matters thoy could havo obtained as much space as they desired.
Tlio English commissoncrs wore refused space, but they never let up,
and tho rosult was thoy obtained as
much spaco ns they wished."
Another example of Johnny Bull's
pcrsii-itcnco in ganing his ends,
A correspondent of the London
Standard, writing from Turin, gives
Bomo nccount of the venerable Hung-
garian patriot Louis Kossuth, whose
eightieth birthday was celebrated
tho other day. "The banquet," snys
tho correspondent, "was n splendid
sight, as woll ns an atTectinj,' one.
So clearly rung the voice of tho
venernble speaker through tho vast
hall that had'the discourse been in
Latin I could havo understood evory
word of it. Timo has passed over
him so tenderly that oven the clear

His intellectual powers are as great
and his interest in the progress of
litcraturo and fino arts in the various
countries with whose tongues he is
familiar as keon ns ever. The visitors, doubtless, carried away tho
flowers presented to them at tho
banquet, but they wero not from
Kossuth's garden, for ho has none,.

TUPPElt's DIPLOMACY.
Ottawa, Aug. 14,—Up to date
twice as many modus vimidi licenses

the part of V. S, fishermen that they
have no right to enter Canadian waters
for the purchase of bait and supplies,
transhipment, etc., without paying for
the privilege. A prominent government official said yesterday that this
modus vivendi was a clever trick on
the part of Sir Charles Tupper to get
the United States fishermen to pay for
that to which they had hitherto
thought thoy wero justly entitled to.

OTTAWA NOTES.
Ottawa, Aug. 13.— Tho cabinet
hold a lengthy sitting to day to fur*
titer eonsidor tho seizure of the Black
Diamond in Behrin*- Sea. Noarly all
the papers hare arrived, but tho claim
for compensation will not bo transmitted until furthor details aro rooeiv*
ed. Tho previous claims submitted
aggregate 9120,000.   That the cutter
Richard Rush winked at the escape of
the Black Diamond is disproved by the
copy of the instructions to the seaman,
Hawkins, which was received here
yesterday. The document reoites the
seizure made for violation of section
1951 of the revised statutes of the
United States, and directs him to
proceed to Sitka and deliver the
vessel to the district attorney there
before settintx the crew at liberty.
Hawkins was also instructed to take
charge of the vessel if its course should
bo altered.

A OREAT   DISCOVERY.
Aspen, Colo., Aug. 12.—The Minnie mine on Aspen mountain was the
scene of a discovery on Saturday night
that has produced moro excitement in
the camp thon the richest strike in tlm
Aspen distriot. On Friday evening
the night shift drilled two deep holes
in the breast of the 600 foot level and
touched off the blast just before coming to the surface. On Saturday upon
returning to the mino they found that
tlie blast had blown a passago way into
a beautiful cave, the walls of which
wore covered with orystallized lime
nnd lead and stalactites depended from
tho ceiling. Tho party passed along
into another cave of similar beauty,
then passed a pool of fresh water and
came to a third chamber in which they
were startled to find a petrified mau
with a flint axe and bowl by his Bide,
Other stone men were found all in the
same position. They were seated with
their heads on their knees and their
arms clasped around their legs. In
attempting to lift the mummies the
men broke off the arras and discovered
thnt the figures would crumble unless
thoy were tenderly handled. The
figures are supposed to be those of peoplo who preceded the Indians on thi-t
continent. The mine was surrounded
by hundreds of people all anxious to
explore the cave. %

London, Aug. 13. —-The Parnellito
members of parliament held a meeting
last night. Mr. Parnell, who acted as
chairman, commented in very strong
language on the lax attendance of
members at the sessions of the house.
Twenty were absent when a division
was taken yosterrdayon Mr. Gray's
amendment to the tithes recovery bill,
when their presence would have insured the defeat of the government.
Mr. Parnell soundly berated the absentees, and told them very plainly
that their conduct was a shameful

Benjamin Yeomans, chagred with
having illicit intercourse with a girl
under 10 yearn of age, a granddaughter
of defendant. A warrant was issued
for Yeomans two weeks ago, but he
went to Victoria about that time and
the warrant could not be served. Yesterday lie returned and hoard that an
information had been laid against him,
and immediately gave himself up. Mr.
McColl appeared fcr defendant and
asked that the fullest investigation be
mado iuto this case, The case was
adjourned for ono week.
Michael Fagan, drunk and incapable, pleaded that he had been sick.
and had taken a little too muoh whiskey, which had overcome him. Fined
$2.50 and costs or ten days.
Larry McDonald, charged with being
drunk and incapable, pleaded guilty,
and was fined 82.50 and coiita or ton
days.
John McKay, charged with being
drunk and disorderly, was dismissed
with costs.
Mr. Baker Withdraw**.
It is very evident, says the World,
that Victoria's senior representative in
the commons has shaken the dust of
tho federal capital off his shoes forever. He has just notified the authorities of St. George's ohurch thnt inasmuch ns he is not likely to visit Ottawa again, he feels obliged to withdraw his name from the subscription
list of worshippers at that church. An
Ottawa exchange says tbat this looks
as if Mr. Baker, who was disappointed
over not getting a senatorahip, does
not intend to return to his parliamentary duties, from which under ono
pretext or another ho absented himself last session.
A Bailway in Trouble
Advices from Seattle state that a
few days ago some excitement was
created over the fact coming to light
that the Seattle, Lake Shore & Eastern Railroad was fn tho hands of a receiver, tnd many anxious faces wero
to be seen around the prominent business editors. It seems that Earle &
McLeod, of Victoria, contractors for
that corporation, have become tired of
promises and aro trying to obtain
through tho courts aomothing moro
substantial for services performed, and
accordingly brought suit against the
road beforo Judge Hanford, who issued an order appointing W. H. Led*
Rorwood receiver. It appears that
Earlo & Co.'s contracts wero completed and the company was asked to
audit the same, nut havo failed to
comply, and consequently wore informed that if the matter was not
straightened by August 2nd, thoy
would commence suit, which was accordingly done. Every effort was
made to supross these facts from the
press and publio, but In vain. On
searching the records offico In Seattle
it was learned that the firm abovo
named had brought suit against tlie
road for a claim of $87,000, nnd that
thoy aiked the court (Judge Hanford)
to appoint a receiver, Their affidavit!
stato that tho company is insolvent
and that it is their intention' to sell
the property and defraud their creditors, and furthor, that tho intereat on
tho bonds due on August 1 would not
bo paid. President McDonald, with
Judge Burke, counsel for tho corporation, immediately appealed to tlm
justice that tlte receivership be dissolved. Bonds were given in the sum
of $80,000, and the oourt thereupon
dissolved the receivership, and  the

London, Aug. 13.—In tho house of

during England's occupancy. It was
impossible to fix tho limit at this time
for the occupation. England had assumed certain definite obligations in
Egypt and she must fulfil thorn

In 2 hours and 37 minutes over

on tho two by-laws in aid of tho
Victoria, Saanich k Now Westminster Railway, tho interest bonus bylaw was carried by a bare majority
of throe only, whilo tho sharo by-law
was defeated by forty-six votes.
The intorest bonus by-law as passed
provides, briefly, that tho city of
Viotoria shall grant and guarantee
unto tho railway company a bonus
of interest on $500,000 of tho company's bonds for twenty-fivo years,
amounting to §20,000 a year; also
that the company shall havo a free

period. Tho defeated share by-law
called for tho corporation of Victoria
becoming a shareholder in the V. S.

shares of 6100 each in tho capital
stock of tho company, and to meet

Although temporarily wet-blanketed
by the verdict of tho ratepayers

Alex. Wilson, Esq., Alox. Alfred

men, we take it, to lio down permanently under partial defeat, especially us the cntorpriso itsolf holds out
not a few advantages to tho capital
city.
Tho News of this morning takes
Alderman Jaques to task for his incidental and somewhat disparaging
reference in the city council to tho recently held Fruit Growers' Association exhibition at Vancouver, and
attributes an animus to his remarks
on the subject that certainly does
not belong to them. Says the News.-
"It is diflicult to know what could
havo incited the worthy alderman
to make such remarks as he did, except he did so through a feeling of
potty jealousy which prevents a man
fiom seeing any good in anything
which does not tako place in his own
town, or whicli lie himself has not
originated." Our cotemporary need
not have fallen into such an error if
it lud taken the troublo, instead of
jumping to a conclusion as it has
dono, to dispassionately consider the
connection and drift of Alderman
Jaques' remarks referred to. Aldermen Jaques, in his laudable zealous-
ncs. for the success of the provincial exhibition to lie held in this city
the lirst week in October, was urging the necessity of having it property advertised and without more
delay, and, after tho manner of temperance orators, emphasized his remarks by utilizing the late Fruit
Growers' exhibition at Vancouver
as the "horrible example." If the
worthy aldermun spoko a little
strongly, it will readily bo soen that
his feelings all revolved round the
subject paramount in his mind—the
propor advertising of the forthcoming provincial exhibition—and that
his purely incidental rofcrenco to
tho lato exhibition at Vancouver
was wholly devoid of that animus
which the News has professed to soo
in it. Thero oan be no doubt that
Alderman Jaques had reasons for
believing that tho exhibition in
question was not an unqualified success—not becauso it had been held
at Vancouver but becauso—and this
is implied in the alderman's remarks
it hnd not been properly advertised;
and Alderman Jaques was com-
inendalily anxious that the same
imatidco should not be repeated in
the case of tho provincial exhibition.
Tho News itself admits that tho exhibition at that oity fell short of
succoss in point of attendance. "If
the i.ttendance at tho exhibition was
not as large as it should liavo beon,
is it not men like Alderman Jaques
who wero tho cause of iti" says our
cotemporary. Without straining
tho imagination iu looking for a
cause for the somewhat unsatisfactory attondanco, and numbor of
the exhibits, nt the Fruit Growers' exhibition at Vancouvor, it may
be found in tho reason we have
mentioned above, viz., insufficient
advertising of the ovont, It is tho
Agricultural districts that must bo
looked to mainly to take an interest
in and attend these exhibitions, nnd
they should bo thoroughly advortised
in tho various weekly, as woll as
daily papers, for at least two months
prior to tho holding of the show. In
the ousc of the lato Fruit Growers'
exhibition, wo may state that it was
nol advertised in this papor at all—
with the oxception of a short notice,
a few days boforo the exhibition,
referring to special passonger rates
—and tho Wnwuv Coiumdian, by
reason of its boing longest established
and more gonorally circulated, is,
pre-omiiiently, the papor whioh tho
people of Westminster distriot look
to for their news and general and
special information. So long as
false views of enoonom/, and slow
measures generally, obtain with exhibition promoters in this province,
so long will exhibitions oontinue to
bo complete or partial "lizzies," in
tho matter, at least, of attendance,
the number of the exhibits, and
genoral interest. That the majority of our moro important exhibitions in the past have failod to a
greater or less extent in these
respects, and for the reason stated, thero can be no question.
In conclusion, we trust tbat the
News will havo seen the foolishness
of its assumption that Alderman
Jaquos was actuated by any bad
feeling towards Vancouver in his
merely incidental remarks about tlie
Fruit Growors' Association exhibition, 	
How  many of   tho engineering
works of tho nineteenth century, remarks Engineering, will thoro bo in
existence in tho yoar 00001 Very
fow, it fears, and still less those that
will continuo in the fur-oil' age to
servo   a useful purpose, and adds:
Yet, there is at least one great undertaking conceived and executed
by an  engineer whioh during tho
spaco of  four  thousand years ha3
nover ceased its office, on which the
life of a fertile provinco absolutely
dopends today.   We refer to the
Bahr Joussuf—tho canal of Joseph
—built, according to tradition, by
the son of Jacob, and which constitutes   not   the least of  the many
blessings ho conferred on Egypt during the years of his prosperous rule.
This  canal  took its rise from the
Nile nt Asiut, and ran nearly parallel with it for nearly two hundred
and fifty miles, creeping along under
the western cliffs of the Nile valley,
with   many a bend nnd winding,
until  at  length it gained an omi*
nence, as compared with tho river
bed, which enabled it to turn westward through a   narrow pass and
enter a district which was otherwise
shut off from the fertilizing floods on
which all vegetation in Egypt depends.    The  northern  end  stood
seventeen feet above low Nile, whilo
at  the southern end it was at an
equal  elevation  with    the   river.
Through  this out ran a perennial
stream, whioh watered   a province
named  tho  Fayoum, endowing it
with fertility and supporting a large
population.   In the time of the annual flood a great part of tho canal
was   under   water, and   then  tho
river's current would rush in a moro
direct course into tho pass, carrying
with it tho rich silt which takes, the
place of manure and keeps the soil
in a state of constant productiveness.
All this, with tho oxception of tho
tradition that Joseph built it, can
be verified to-day, and it is not mere
supposition or rumor.   Until eight
years ago it was firmly believed that
the design has always been limited
to an irrigation scheme, lorger, no
doubt, than that, now in operation,
as shown by the traces of abandoned
canals and by the slow aggregation
of waste water which had accumulated in tho Birket ol Querun, but
still essentially the same in oharactor.     Many   accounts   have   been
written by Greek and Roman historians,   such  a Herodotus, Strabo,
Mutianus, and Pliny, and repented
in monkish legends or portrayed in
tho maps of the middle ages, whioh
agreed with tbo folk lore of the district.   Those tales explained that
the canal dug by the ancient Israelite
served to oarry the surplus waters
of the Nilo into nn extensive lake
lying south of the Fayoum. and so
large that it not only modified the
climate, tempering tho arid winds of
tho desert and converting them into
tho balmy nirs which nourished the
vines and the olives into a fullness
and fragranco unknown in any other
part of the oountry, but also added to
the food supply of tho land suoh immense  quantities of   fish that the
royal prerogative of the right of piscary at the treat weir was valued at
5250,000 annually.   This lako was
said to bo 450 miles round, and to
bo navigated by a fleet of vessels,
while the wholo circumference wos
tho scene of industry nnd prosperity.

A domo of xliought Titanic;
A quick, inaRnctic naturo bis,
A spirit strong, galvanic.
He imd tlie wit of Hudlbras,
Tlio intellect of Plato,
Andevory ono perceived at ouca
Ho waa no small potato;
But yot lie askod, alas 1 'tis true:
■ Woll, is this hot enough lor yout"
And ho had doop Wcbstcrian oyos
Bouenth his brows o'orarohtug,
His mind kopt atop to that great tunc
To which tbo world la marching.
Along famo'B track wo prophesied
He'd bo tbo fastest sprinter-
Ills intellectual lightning gleamed
Like Northern lights in winter;
But yet, ho askod the summer thro':
' Weli, is this hot onough for yout"
And so his high Shahospoarean thought
Was stop by step arrested,
His olephantino Intellect
Was gradually congostod;
His lofty, intellectual dome
From day to day grow flatter,
His hoad so shrank and shriveled up
It terrorized his hatter;
But still ho said: "How do you do?
Well, Is this hot onough for youl"
And now Ida thoughts aro very crude,
Inuno and ombryolic,
Ilo mouths and Jabbers all the day
In manner idiotic.
Tho poor, old, hopeless imbecile,
Tho jest of all creation,
Livos as a warning to thoso folks
Who taako this salutation:
" Good morning, friend, how do you do;
Woll, Is this hot enough for yout"

Phobe Ciissold had boon loft an orphan at
Inotbon. Hor nearest relative—a brother
: hor deceasod mother—was a bank clerk
i Now York, aud to lilra she had naturally
d-cotcd her footsteps. Ho hnd succeeded
: obtaining for her a situation in a great
moy storo; and iu this, tho first quartor,
io had ignomtniously broken down.
''She can not onduro long hours and
use conlinoinonl," said Dr. Falknoy, "Sho

iiia storo business won't do."
■\Exerci30l" bitterly repeated Mrs. Myn
in, in whoso heart years of privation and

Br. Falkney shook hia head.

imporament."

jokafor tho last Mynton baby, hoard all

"Thoy don't want mo hero," thought sho
adly. "I am a useless boarder, and Dr.

tinining any suoh luxuries,"
As aho lay thero alio watched Angelina
lynton trying lo trim hot* last season's hai
*lth three yards of crushed-strawberry-
otored ribbon, and a bunch of yellow prim*
osc!'. Evidently, Angelina wus no milliner.
■ho I .witched* tho ribbon thia way and that;
ho pinned tho primroses first on ono side,
turn on another, and onded by flinging
own tho bonnet with an exclamation of
cspnlr.
"Hateful old thlngl" sho cried, "I can't
onnythingwlthit."
Phobo laid down her knitting needles.
Hi vo it to mo I" Baid she.
A few dextrous folds and turnings of tho
ibbonb, a dainty adjustment of tho much-
.buscd primroses, and Flu-bo hold up the
loimot to Angelina's admiring glanco,
"How do you liko it now!" sold sho.

"1 don't know," aaid Phebe. "I always

"You ought to bo a milliner," said An*
toltna. "Only," with a suddon recollection,
'Dr. Falkney says you can't bo shut up In a
itore, and a milliner's trado la about aa con*
iiitiig as uuy thero Ib."
"Yes," assented Phebo, with a sigh.
Dr. Falkney was a quiet, brief-spoken
-an of forty, and a bachelor at that. He
'nd practiced medicine in tho samo location
'or ton years, and never folt thnt any
lomonb waa Jacking in hia lifo until now.
lilt on this brisk spring morning ho sat
, Higbtfully In his oillco, looking at the

"Bho has oyoa liko a startled door," ho

"Yea, I boo," said tho doctor, with a dis*
'urtici-Uook.  "I daro any 1Mb as you any.
Uut I hope aho will soon como homo again."
Phebo had mndo up hor mind what to do.
"I'll hon traveling peddler," sho told hor-
ioir,   "Part of my stock I'll curry In my
irnlmi, imd pnrt on my arm."
Tbittluy, juat aa Mrs. Perkins, atFlooli
Joiiter, wus sotting her table for dinnor,

with anybody, Mra. Perkins. But I've got
niylivingto earn. Uncle Mynton Isn't a
.ricli'i!'.-.!!, and I cau't bo a drag ou him. I
tried lifo in ;'. storo, but it seeum I wasn't
slrong enough for that sort of thing. Bo
I'm going tb nlrlkoouton a now luck. I'm a
travoliiig milliner at present."
"What!" said Mrs, Perkins, holding lho
tea-caddy liigh abovo thoshlning plated teapot.
Phobo pointed to the light basket that sho
carried on her arm.
"In that basket," auid ahe, laughmg,
"thoro arc three compartments. Ono is
full of tins latest atyle of spring frames,
packed closely, ono within another; the second contains JloworB and'wrcatbs; the third
la full pf ribbons of overy color, of lho rainbow. You'i! got your spring bonnet of mo,
Mrs. Porkiaa, won't you!"
"Well, if that ain't providential 1" Bald
Mrs. Parking, "Iv/aajuat going to Linloy
arterit to-morrow— I wus, Justus suro us
you're born!"
"I'll suit you better than any of tho Linloy milliners, Mrs, Perkins," Baid Phobo".
'And I'll work bhonp, too, Glvo me a trial,
that'a all I nak."
"Well, I'll do that," said tho good dumo,
"I remember, now, you waa always handy
with tho needlo. Dinner's ready, an' I'm
goin'to blow tho horn for Perkins und the
hired man. Bit down, Phobe, and take pot*
luck with tie."
After dinnor Phobo set herself diligently
to work to suit Mrs. Perkins with a now
bonnet. Sodrlot Jlold-poppics, black satin
ribbon and a frame covered with puffed black
silk took tho worthy woman's fancy completely.
"I never had a handsomer biinuit," said
alio. "There's roal style to it. Eight dollars'} Of course I'll pay you eight dollars,
Phobe 1 I expected lo pay ton in Linloy,
and Ibis is prettier than I'd have got thoro."
Thi.) bit ol' succoss took tho edge off Trom
tho criticisms and c.irptuga of Mra. Deacon
Root, who 1 ivod in tho noxt houao with her
tbrco daughters, who hadnonoof them, to
uso her own oxprosaion, "any faculty fur
flxin' up bunuits." And Phobo wns compelled to "wholcaalo" the family for twenty-six dollars, which hardly moro thun covered expenses.
Thon sho repacked hor basket and onco
moro aot forth, under tho blossoming trees
and along tho ahady lanes, whoro dandelions sprinkled all tho grass liko dropa of
sunshine.
"Dr. Falknoy waa right," sho said to herself. ''Air and exorcise aro what I needed.
I fool liko another woman, only It docs mako
mo fool bad to think of novor seeing Dr.
Fnlknoy'a kind faco againt" And for a
moment tho far-away bluo of tho April shy
glimmered through a mist of unshed tears.
How foolish I nm I" suid Phebo to horsolf.
Thon sho knocked at Mrs. Parthnn's door,
and asked leavo to bIhuv hor tho now spring
shapes in hats and bonnets.
Tho fresh, glistening rolls of ribbon, tho
crisp rosea and jonquils, the tempting
•'shapes'.1 in straw and lace and bucknun,
and Phobe' a own natural-born skill in combining them—all thoao proved irresistible
to tho country folk, and boforo long Phebo
had sold out all her Btock and returned to
the eity with a considerable sum over nnd
above her expenses.
This," sho aaid gleefully to horsolf, "I
Bhall givo to Aunt Mynton toward tho cost
I have boen to her."
As sho crossed tho Btreet toward the
dreary, red brick walla of the "Ontario
Flats," whore tbo - Myntons dwelt, with
about a dozen othor families, some one
reined up a horso, with n quick ery of:
''Do you want to bo run over, Phebol"
Bho looked up.   It was Dr, Falknoy.
"01 doctor," sho cried, radiantly, "I havo
takon your proscription, and you can'tthlnk
how much good it has douo mo 1"
Tho doctor looked ua bright ns sho did
herself, "I shall call to seo you to-night,"
said ho.
"Another prescription?" cried Phobo. And
then sho remembered, wltli a sudden crimsoning of tho cheeks, that sho had not yot
paid his bill.
"But I can pay hlm now!" sho thought,
aa alio stood thore and watched his carriage
roll down tho street. "Just as soon os his
office hours boglu PU go there, I won't
wait for him to present hia bill."
To Dr. Falknoy's great Bur prise hia first
patient that afternoon waa Phobo Ciissold,
"Doctor," said she, "I've como to pay
your bill out of monoy that I've earned myself,"
"Havo I sent It inl" said he,
"No, but-"
"Nor do I intond to do so I" ho declared.
'Phebo, I'm thinking of going into partnership. "
"Then your partnor will certainly want
nil the old debts paid up," nodded she.
"I don't know about that. I nm thinking of a- Hfo-partnorship, Phebe-not a
medical ono—and tho partnor I want, dear
littlo girl, la youl"
It was, perhaps, a littlo vague, but alio
understood It in an instant. Her ohoclca
dualled; her long brown oyolaahea d roopo J.
"Dearest," said ho, taking her hand, "i3
it to bo Dr. Falkney and wifo?"
Somo other patients camo in juat thou,
and after thnt ono look into hor hazel oyoa
Dr. Falkney waB troubled with no misgivings.
Bo thero camo an end to tho bonnet-trimming businesa—"tho itinerant millinery,"
as Phobo's husband called it.
But I shall always feolhappior and more
independent," anid aho, "for knowing that
I am ablo to earn my own living,"—Saturday night.

A Practical Joko Which Camo Naur Eliding lu a Tragedy.
A young physician wont to ace his cousin,
an army officer, out upon tho great plain-:
Tho officer wns givon to practical jokes, uu i
the young doctor, boing a genuine ''Louder
foot," was a most promising subject. Ona
morning, snys tho Youth's Companion, lln*
host gravely proposed an elephant hum
"What," suid tho doctor, "do you havo eh'
phiinta out hero}"
"Plenty of thom," replied tho host. Prep
aratlons woro ot oncobogun, and by niu
o'clock u parly of youngsters, ripo for Un
fun, woro aftor olophantn. When nbou t f: v
or six miles from tho post tho dootor win
sont through a thlokot of "walt-u-bir
thorns, of which ho know nothing. Antici-
pattng raro sport at his plight on hia ret m-i
tho hoBt ant on hiB horso waiting, whon Inboard a shot nud wna startled by loud ort&t
for help.
Ho galloped through tho gladOB nnd nr.
rived nta small prairio opening of un Ron
or two in extent, nround whicli tho dci-ii.
was frantically urging hia pony, whilo on ■
n fow yards behind was a hugo wild To--::-
bull ln full chargo.
All tho manliness of tho host was nrouacd
by thla renl and unoxpecled danger of hi1
friend, and, without a moment's hesitation,
ho dashed In and flrcd a pistol shot. In r u
Instant tho bull turned upon bim. Hia largo
American horao was unequal to tho emergency, nnd in turning wns met full in the
side by the horns of tho beast.
Both homo and ridor woro lifted for one
instant into tho air, nud thon camo down in
a heap together. The horso wus detul with
out a Btrugglo, ono horn being completely
through hia body, thn other caught in the
bones of ihu cheat. Ono log of tho rider
waa betweon tho horns of tho bull, pinned
fast between hiB bond and the body of tho
horse.
Tho wholo hunting party aoon assembled.
Thoy woro afraid to shoot tho hull, lest hia
struggles might further injure tho man
nlunod to hiin. At lard his jugular vein w-.\_
opened and ho slowly bled to death. ]Iis
horns woro then cut off, tho horao lifted
uud tho now nearly doad man oarrlod on u
litter buck to tho post,
Though no bones woro boken, ho pnld lho
full penalty of his joko, not only with tho
losa of a lino horse, but with sevornl weelfn
of severe Buffering. It was his last "olo
nhiint" hunt.

This will throw a large number of

month or more. Tho Chineso aro
proverbially saucy when they imagine
they have the upper hand, but, unfortunately for them, their efforts in tho

I'll reel Post,
It is understood that tho poBtofiico
department is negotiating with the imperial general postoflico with n view to
a reduction in the rates for tho transmission of parcels by mail botween
Canada and the mothor country. Tho
ratoa per pound, or fractionof a pound,
am na follows: Maritime provinces
and Quebec, 30 cents; Ontario, 25
cents; Manitoba and N. W, TY, 40
cents; British Columbia, 45 centj,
Another mattor at present engaging
the attontion of tho department is tho
extension oE the parcel post service to
all iho countries in the post-il union. As
enormous expense would bo entailed
in establishing direct servico from Canada with thoso several countries, tho
imperial authorities hnvo beon asked
to constitute thoir general postoflico at
London as the Canadian oflice of exchange, and a Favorablo answer is confidently looked for. Should tho proposal bo agreed to, tho rates of postage
on tho parcels would be those iu force
between Canada and Great Britain nnd
the country of destination. The latter nmount would bo handed over to
Groat Britain when tho annual settlement takes plnco.

way up McKenzie stroet tho man showed fight, and throw off his coat to give

he was taken in charge by Constable

after boing locked up. The man is a
Btranger in tho city, and from his appearance would bo classed as a railroad
navvy or possibly a tramp. Several
cases of this kind havo happened within lho past year, without tho ■ guilty
{■arties hnvo boen brought to justice,

tho purpose of Bending a racing toam

Hyacks are practising steadily for tho
event, and to-night tho full team of 15
men will bo out, Ever since tho company was re*organlzed last fall, its
members havo taken n deep interest
in their duties, and havo endeavored to mako themselves as efficient as possible. Outside uf tho
routine of regular duty thoro must be
sumo attractions to induce tho members to retain a lively interest in tho

keep up tho esprit de corps that a successful racing team—one that will add
fresh laurels to tho brigade. The

Another False Report.
A fow days ago an item appeared in
a Vancouvor newspaper, purporting to
be a despatch from Tacoma, stating
that Mr. Nelson Bennett, of tho Fair-
haven ifc Southern Railway, had discharged 1000 men who had been employed on railroad construction. This
afternoon Mr. B. Douglas, president
of tho Southorn Railway, recoived tho
following despatch from Mr. Bennett;
"Report in Advertiser entirely false;
on the contrary we nro putting on all
the men wc can get. Report probably means Ship Harbor road, or Seattle
Northern, as I understand they have
discharged their ontiro force." This
despatch will re-as3ure tho fow who
were mislead by tho report iu the first
instance. Little or no attention was
paid tn tho despatch referred to, aa it
was hot considered likely that Mr.
Bennett would double work on the
terminal portion of tho road and shut
down operations at the starting point.
Although Mr. Bennett has not advertised his present operations and future
intentions, or "blown his own horn"
to any great extent, yot he is hard nt
work on his road, and his failure to
advertise himself with loud clamour is
because ho believes in work, not bombast.
I'oluulul Scenery.
Atthe Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly,
London, Eng., Edward Roper has on
exhibition pictures of colonial scenery
and incidents, embracing views of
Canada, tho hikes, prairies and mountains, British Columbia, Australia,
New Zealand, and tlio South Seas,
made during recent visits ta these
countries. From a hand-book on the
views, for which wo nro indebted to
Mr, H. B. Shadwell, of tho Bon
Marche clothing house, we make the
following extracts about NewWestminster: "This is, or wns, until Vancouver city outstripped it, tho second
city in British Columbia. It is but a
Miiall plane according to our ideas
[i, 6,, London ideas], but it is full of
enterprise, and does a 'big business' in
lumber, ie,, timber, and lish. There
aro many very charming residences
hero, and after the wildnoss. and
roughness of the prairies and mountains, the traveller is enchanted with
tho evidences of comfort and refine*
inept which surround him. This drawing was made beside tho road, a few
minutes' walk above tho city. The
'sidewalk' wus continually traversed
by'ull sorts and conditions of men,'
from ladies and gentlemen in Bond-
street attire to tho Indian Siwash and
his klootchmen; there were Chinamen,
too, of high and low degree, but nearly all of them carried an English silk
umbrella, and thoro wero young Englishmen in 'blazers' on lawn tennis
bent,"
Homily Island.
News is received in town to-day that
the Bottlers on Hornby island havo

OBts to tho Oregon Improvement Company, and that company will within
tho next fow weeks commence boring
operations on tiiat island. Hornby
island i3 situated hi the Gulf of (icor*
gia, nearly opposite tho Union minos,
iJoumnn island intervening. It hus
been thought for somo timo that tho
coal would be found under that island,
but there is a groat difference of opinion as to the probablo depth, estimates
ranging from 1000 to 5000 feet. Tho
island is not a very largo one, but
with tho wator privileges, affords room
for an extensive nroa of coal.—Free

Thoro was considerable chuckling
horo at the news from Victoria of the
safe arrival there of tho soaler Black
Diamond, although thero is naturally
much resentment still existent at tho
outrageous conduct of Capt. Shepherd
in forcibly boarding tho vessol and
breaking open tho ship's lockers.
Shepherd's action and that of his government affords a vory romarkablo
contrast to tho treatment extended to
tho United States fishing vessels that
have boon seized or detained for tran-
gressions of our fishery laws on the
Atlantic. Tako aB an instance tho
caBO of tho (ichooner Mnttio Winship,
seized off Sidney in June last. That
vessol wos released on a bund for $3,-
000, and subsequently our government intimated its willingness to givo
up the vessol on a payment of §2,000
nnd expenses, while in the case of the
Canadian vessels seized iu Behring
Sen in 1887 a number of them liavo
been allowed to go to dooay, and in.
othor cases, when ib was proposed to
bond them the amount of security demanded was so far in excess of the-
actual valuation that the owners refused to have anything to do with
them. With regard to tho othors, we*
learn that up to the present it has
been impossible to securo a re*valuation of the seized vessels. Apart altogether from tho recent seizure, the
conduct of Capt. Shepherd must of
necessity engage tho most serious attention of tho homo government. Im
this caso a vessol having a British register and flying tho British flag is
boarded on the high seas and forcibly
searched. Under these circumstances
it is surelyjdue to British vessels pursuing a legitimate calling that the Imperial government Bhould, without
procrastination, take prompt and decisive measures to protect its commerce-
beyond tho territorial waters of the-
United Statos or any other country.—
