A Presbyterian church in Pittsburg lias just secured a soprano
from Chicago by offering hor $2,000
a year, wliich is $500 a year more
than she lias been receiving. It is
said that a fow old fogies in the
church wanted to dispense with
soprano and give the $2,000 a year
to the poor and needy, but tho idea,
was not entertained for a moment,
An English clergyman, it ia said,
who was recently telling the story
of the Good Samaritan, got two
incident-* iu tiio Biblo mixed, with
a decidedly ludicrous result. After
reciting tlio good Samaritan's
proviso to tlie landlord of tho inn,
"And when I. come again I will
repay thee," he added, "This he said,
knowing; that ho should seo Ids face
no moro."

A rather surprising incident took
place at the general assembly of the
church of Scotland tho other day.
A committee submitted tho proof
of a volume of prayers for family
worship. In a warm speech Principal Cunningham moved that the
book bo referred back to committee,
so that the Apostles' Crml might
be omitted from it, A debate of a
moro or Iobs exciting kind followed,
and finally Dr. Cunningham's motion
was rejected, only himsolf and one
other member recording their votes
for it. The occurrence created Bur-
prise, ns the general supposition
was that tho creed referred to was
nn expression of tho common beliefs
nf most Christians, Dr, Cunning'
ham said he did not believo in tho
clause which said that Christ descended into hell.
The following from an exchango
is said to be the origin and history
of tho "Union Jack." "The Union
Jack bears on a blue ground the red
cross of St. Georgo for England, the
whito diagonal cross of St, Androw
for Scotland, and the red diagonal
cross of St. Pitrick for Irelnnd.
The original Union Jack was
adopted in 1606, threo years after
James VI. of Scotland becamo King
of England, and consisted of the
crosses of St, Georgo and St. Andrew,
The name Jaok is said to be a corruption of the world Jacobus,
Jaquos, or James. The flag wub
adopted 101 years beforo the two
kingdoms wero united, During
that timo they were separate kingdoms, with as it happened, ono
ruler. In 1801, when Irelnnd was
taken into the union, the cross of
St. Patriok was added, '

Tho mysterious disappearance of Mr.
David Little, of Alberni, whioh wjb
chronicled in the Free Press some time
ago haa at last been explained. It appears that the nicht before the finding
ot his horse he had slept out of doors
and got thoroughly drenched with
the heavy rain. Next morning his
horse being badly foundered he left
for Engliahm m'a river. Next night
the rain still continued, and as his cabin
leaked badly he started for a neighbor's,
but took tho new road which is being
built and which led him into a swamp;
becoming bewildered ho wandored
around for four days, when he struck
Taylor's ranch and obtained food. Ho
loft there and again bocame bewildered, and fortunately was discovered
by Mr. H. O. Edwards, about five
miles beyond Alberni settlement, and
on the opposite side of thu river, Mr.
Edwatdi, seeing the exhausted and
nervous condition iu whioh Mr. Little
was, brought him to tho eity and
placed him in tho Nanaimo hospital.
Mr. Little tolls some hair-raising experiences while lost in tho bush. Every
nii;lit he heard panthera in close vicinity and ono night he slept under a
fallen tree whilo his panthcrahip occupied the upper side not fifteen feet
away. Tho escapoof Mr. Little from
a horrible death ia miraculous, and the
ellects of the dangers and hardships
which he underwent during those four
dnys aro still visible on his countenance.-—Free Press.
LATE CANADIAN NEWS.
ReporlB from Lachine, Que., say
that thoro was hail there Friday night
It was the heaviest ever soen, the hail-
atones being nt least half an inch in
diameter, accompanied by a strong
wind.
A Gagotown, Now Brunswick,
special says: It seems that a woman
named Mary Jane Godfrey had been
living with a sister, whose name is
Fanny, and two illegitimate children
in a hut in a desolate locality about
eight miles from the shiretown, The
whole family appear to be half witted.
On May 22nd the body of Mary Jane
was found dead in tho hut with evidence of having boen killed, while her
sister Fanny and the children were
going about aB usual. The jury brought
in a verdict to the effect that the do-
ceased came to her death at the hands
of her sister Fanny while laboring under a temporary fit of insanity. The
coroner iaaued a warrant for the arrest
of Fanny Godfrey, who was Boon afterwards imprisoned in the gaol at Gage-
town. Sho will probably bo taken to
tho lunatic asylum. It is not known
how long the body of the deceased had
lain in tho placo boforo it was discovered, but decomposition had mado
considerable progress. DAILY BRITISH COLUMBIAN, NEW WESTMINSTER, B. Q„ JUNK 17, 1889,

Tho latest rumor in steel rail circles- says tho 'Railway Review of a
lato date, is that steel rails will be
down  to  §>25 before midsummer,
Tho strongest basis for that rumor,
says the lievu'w, is that two western
Pennsylvania mills nro competing
for trade, and that one is determined
that the other shall not have business at 82(3.   The article continues :
Tho latest steel rail improvements
have   been  adopted   by steel  rail
manufacturers to reduce the cost of
production to the lowest point over
known, and us there is not enough
business to go round, those who enn
discount quotations from ono-to two
dollars   pet*   ton below others will
secure  tho   first   rush of; business.
Nothing has as yet been settled with
reference  to  tho talk of  shutting
down for the summer,   Heavy iron
oro contracts are being placed every
day.   Pig iron production has not
been curtailed in any section of the
country.   Railroad companies have
quietly undertaken to modify freight
rates to purchasers from furnaces.
^ar mills throughout the country
are-'working but littlo over (JO per
cent  of their capacity, pi ite mills
70 p<-" cent.   Tipe mills an booking
a good many order-;,   The roal trado
j.: extremely dull, but thero arc signs
of improvement.   Ooko makers find
it difficult to maintain prices under
the heavy output,  There is a strong
confidence   that   in   two or three
weeks moro a general improvement
will set in,   Foreign iron and steel
maker'-  are   quite active.    Murine
engine building and ship building
are brisk, nml companies doing such
business are quite full of work, and
n better condition exists  than  has
bctu known for several years.  Railroad   building   is not being pushed
with  the nccttstrmed  energy, but
railroad  promoters   assert that, ns
as soon as conditions warrant it, renewed zeal will be manifested in not
only the newer sections of the can-
try, but in the older, in which there
is  nt  present a superabundance of
railway facilities.
ablo ; and lack of brains is too com
mon to excite any particular attention either in tho person concerned
or in thoso about him.    Uut a weak
heart insists in putting itself in evidence at all sorts of convenient and
inconvenient times.   If its possessor
finds   himself   rather   lato for his
morning train, and makes a "spurt"
to recover lost time, tho exertion is
generally followed by such u "bad
quarter of an hour" that ho resolves
in   futuro  rather  to loso a dozen
trains than to risk temporary suffocation or permanent syncope again.
The practical evils wliich are associated with a feeble heart nro innumerable,   and will  readily suggest
themselves to those who possess so
unsatisfactory a   pumping   engine.
Weak   hearts arc by no means so
common as is often supposed, thinks
an   authority, and adds:   Many a
man who thinks he has got ono is
merely dyspeptic;   many u woman
owes her symptoms to tight lacing
or insufficient feeding.    If the dyspepsia bo cured, or the tight lacing
be dispensed with, tlio symptoms of
heart weakness will disappear. Even
when the heart is genuinely "weak,"
the weakness is not always due to
special   disease of that organ.   It
may  be   only   part  of   a   genoral
weakness of tho wholo system, which
is   easily   curable.    The   late   Sir
Robert Ohristison, ono of tho most
eminent of British physicians, used
to smile at certain persons who wero
always complaining of weak hearts,
"Gentlemen," ho would   say to his
students when lecturing ou digitalis,
"gentlemen, the   best   tonic  for a
weak heart i3 tx good brisk walk."
Not n doubt of it.    The majority of
weak, llabby hearts   nro   weak and
flabby because every other muscle
in tho body is weak antl flabby, and
this general weakness and flabbihess
is   due   to   want of   vigorous uso.
Exercise of tho legs nnd buck and
arms   gives   additional  and much
needed   exercise to tlie heart, and
the heart grows strong by vigorous
exercise exactly as every other muscular organ does, for the heart is a
muscle.    If   a  man has no organic
disease of tiio heart; no enlargement,
and no functional disorder, plenty
of  brisk   walking, with occasional
running, will soon dispel his broath-
Iessness and heart, weakness, other
things being equal.    The muscular
inactivity of the modern town man
is the parent of moro ill health than
any other single cause whatever.

Appalling us the Johnstown
cattisi-rophe is, it i3 not, as an ex-
chaugo remarks, without its parallels in tho history of tht. Christian
era, nov is it by any tueaua among
the ■.. ■■ the world hus known. It
is but tie more than a year and a
half. ■ : the rising of the Yellow
Itiver in China caused the inundation of 10,000 square miles of territory, rendered 3,000,000 persons
homeless, und binught death to from
500,000 ii 750,000 persons. In
1833 unciher inunduion in Ohina
swept away 10,000 houses in Canton, and abrj'j'. 100,000 inhabitants
of that oity wer* drowned, while
equally heavy losses wero reported
from other parts of China. In 1813
ti great storm caused tho Danube to
overflow, Bwccp\ng away a Turkish
corps of 2,000 men on an island
near Widin, Tho same storm
caused the loss of G.000 lives in
Silesia hiicI oi -1,000 in Poland. In
1,G17 Catalonia, in Spain, was
visitcl hy Hoods in which about 50,-
000 were drowned. Numerous
other great Hoods gaused by rains
are recorded in modern history, the
loss of life in ni my cases being estimated by thn thousand. The sea
has also been the cause of some terrible inundations. Away back in the
yam* 3)i3 Cheshire, in England, was
rivalled by iho waves and 3,000
people perished, Jn 1421 the dikes
at Port, or Dordrecht, gavo way and
7i! (own*and cities were submerged,
the loss nf life being estimated at
100,000. In 1530 asimilat disaster
in Ho!!:in'l is raid to havo caused
the drowning of -100,000 people. In 1883 the great waves
caused by tho fcorrifio explosion
of Krakatoa swept tho shores of
Hunt! a .Strait and curried death to
over 40,000. Among reservoir disasters may lie mentioned thn bursting of tho reservoir at Bradford,
England, in 1861, when over 2ii0
persons were drowned ; and the Mill
Itiver disaster near Northampton,
MasS,', in 1871, when several villages were swept away and 150 liven
were lost, Iu tho latter year also
great floods at Pittsburg and Alleghany Oity caused 220 deaths, Tho
Johnstown catastrophe, howover, ia
tho most appalling one of iiv, kind,
or of nny oilier kind, that America
has evor known, nnd, happening in
a centre of civilization, us it did,
and in this age of the world, when
nil parts of tho earth aro drawn
noar together by tho bonds of electricity and steam, appeals more
powerfully to tho notico and sympathies of mankind than any similar
historical event that might be mentioned, or any ouo of modern times
taking placo in comparatively unknown lands.

Tho advantages and prospects of this
Plot for a future thriving Town aro
many.
Tho Land in Uio vicinity is good.
There aro inexlmusttlilo IRON ORE
DEPOSITS, of a superior quality, immediately adjacent, as well as vast strata of
tlio finest BUILDINO SAND and POTTERY CLAY.
On tho Townsito are a number of valuable MINERAL SPRINGS.
Communication hy land and wator is
unequalled, hy reason of the looatiou of
the TowiiBito on tho Fraser Rivor ami
tlio Southern Railway, whilo the natural
elevation and Iny of tlio laud can not ho
excelled as a situation for a fino town.
Tiio ground is opon and oloar of heavy
timber.
Tho sito hns been selected as ouo of
the most important stations on tho
Southern Railway, ond with tlio completion of tlio road, in the near future,
must, with all its other ndvantngos,

Mr. Kirkland to detain Ah Hoy, and
it was in attempting to do so that tho

THE  CHURCHES.
Summaries or Some of tuc Cllv sermons
Spoken Yesterday.
st. Andrew's church.
Rev. Thos. Scoullar preached lasl
evening in tho Presbyterian church
from the Acts of tho Apostles 10j. 1*2
verses—"Thero was n curtain man in
Ofosarea called Cornelius, a centurion
of tho band called the Italian band :
A devout man, and ono thnt feared
God with all his house, which gave
much alms to tho people, and prayed
to God alwuy"—and spoko _.. follows :
We havo in thia chapter an account of
tho opening of the door of the church
to tho Gentiles—an account of how
God recognized tho Gentiles and received them into tho samo privileges us
were enjoyed by the Jews. Tho econo
of this transaction was nt Gresardn.
Cireaarea was a city of very conaiderablo
imporinnco. It was a seaport town
and posaoased of an excellent harbor,
which was visited by mnny shipa. It
was built by Herod the Groat, and was
inhabited nt thia time mainly by
pagans. Oreaarea ought to bo a place
of very considerable interest lo Gentile
nations, inasmuch as it was hero that
thu door of the ohuroh was opeilod to
the Gentiles. Ibis true that on former occasions thoso of Gentile nations
had received blessings at tho band of
God, aud tho apostles had preached
tho gospel unto individuals and they
had received tho L'ospel. But hero
God shows an apostle of tho circumcision that tbo Getitiloa were cleansed
by thu atoning sacrifice of Christ ns
well as tho Jews, nud that what God
had cleansed no man should call common or unclean, that thoro is no respect of persona with God. It was
hero also, nt Otosarea, that tlio groat
apostle of the Gentiles was imprisoned
for two wholo yeara. It waa hero
whoro bo niiidu his famous spcccli before Felix, Fo3tus, Agrippa and othors.
In thia placo thoro dwelt a devout man
called Cornelius, Thia is a Latin
namo, which shows that Cornelius was
a Roman. He was by profession a
soldier, and ho was a conturion, which
means that ho commanded 100 mon,
although this term will permit of con-
Bidorablo latitude. This eoldier was
evidently n God fearing man. Thero
aro some who seem to think that it is
almost impossible for a soldier to bo a
ChrUtinn, that thero aro few Christians found in tho army. It 13 rather
a remarkable thing that of all the centurions wc rond of in tho biblo there
aro good thinga snid of them. So, in
later times, we rond of noble Christian
men who wore in tho army, such as
Hedloy Vicars, flavolock, and, more
lately, General Gordon. Brethren,
thero is no position in which wo may
riot Berve God. If there is, wo had
better got out of it. This man Cornelius, then, waB a dovout man. That
menus that ho served God lo a certain
extent. This is « genoral term that
mny bo applied to a pagan ns well a:i
to a Christian. You find it applied in
tlio scriptures on several different oc
elisions* It is very evident that he
worshipped God up to tho light that
ho said; he served God according to his
ability, and wo nro constrained to ask
tho question, could any Christian exhibit a more beautiful life than this'!
As yet Cornelius was not a Christian,
but he wns an earnest enquirer, seeking for light—not saved, but yet iu tho
bost condition to bo saved. In answer
to the question how Cornelius came to
possess hia knowledge of tho truo God,
ho was probably simply acting up to
tho light which nature had given him
—ono of thoso of whom tho apostlo
speaks as follows : "Those having not
the law, aro a law unto themselves."
Tlio question of the heathen is a great
quostion, ns to whether thu heathen,
Bomo of them at least, may not bo
snved without the revelation which
God has given to men. We road that
thero is no other name givon undor
heaven whereby men must bo saved
but tho namo of Clirist, and that faith
comoth by hearing; but yot, may not
God, in Borne way unknown to us, op-
ply tho redemptive work of Christ to
those who havo not the gospel 1 There
aro many of tho heathen, wo beliove,
that nro seeking afler God. This haB
boen proved in tho experience of various
missions. This, wo beliove, is tho
condition of many to-dny, in China and
in India. Our duty is, if we have tho
light, if wo havo the knowledge, to
g'ivo it to thoso that havo it not, that
they may share with ua in thoae bloaa-
inga which havo come to us through
Joaus Christ. Itisovidont that'Cornelius had taught his housohold what
ho know of God. All professing Christians do not do as much for their
households. Many, I fear, sond their
children to the Sabbath school, and
think lhat their duty ontU there.
Surtdy, brethren, it is tho duty of all
bonds of families to oreot an altar in
tho family, and to givo thoir children
parental instruction. Wo road that
Cornelius gavo much alms and prayed
alwny, and in these things does, he not
put many Christeans to shame ? As
Christians we Bhould come to Christ,
telling nil our sins, troubles and darkness, aud get from Him light, comfort
and forgiveness. May God help us to
do so.
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCastorla
JOHNSTOWN FLOOD AND SEATTLE   FIBE.
At the service held laBt evoning in
the Orange Hall, under the auspices of
the Reformed Episcopal church, tho
Rev. Thos. Haddon drew lessons from
tho Johnstown flood and Seattle lire,
taking as the basiB of his remarks the
words found in Rov. 7c., 19, 20 and
24v , 8c, lv„ nndBpokeasfollowa: We
have here in these words two classes
of destruction, one of flood and tho
othor of firo, and 1 take those in conjunction with tho two late disasters on
the other Bide of the lino, as a basis
upon which to draw lessons from.
Human naturo is just tho same to-day
ns it was in Noah's timo; ho had
boon warned of tho approaching flood,
and as a preacher ho warned his peoplo; thoy laughed at him, and rofused
to listen to his warnings, and when too
late, thoy realized how true had been
hia forecaat. Lot received the samo
treatment when ho warned his sonB-
in-law of tlio approaching destruction
of Sodom uud Gomorrah, and the samo
indifference ns to their fate waa shown
by tho people of Johnstown; thoy
would not believo that disaster and
death wore so near, hence when it did
como they found it was too lato to do
anything to aivo themselves. An eye
witness, Mr. John McCarty, who escaped, Bays that the people woro
warned in tho early morning; but the
warning wus unheeded until at ton
o'olock tho stream poured into Cinder
stroot. Soon houses rocked to and
fro, and began to drift away, dashing
against each other, and going to pieces;
these houses wero going down to destruction still freighted with the poor
wrotchoB who hnd just a fow hours boforo laughed at the idea of danger.
Year after yonr thoy had been warned
of tho possibility of tho vast lake
breaking through its banks, and the
peoplo living below bad becomo accustomed to tho talk of possible dungor
to them, and evon now, when tho dam
broke and tho flood was approaching,
some only laughed; they would not believe in their insecurity, and is this not
the way tho ambassadors of God aro
treated, who warn tho peoplo of tbo
sure destruction that will como upon
those who will not seek safety in
Christ Jcsua. At Johnstown, when
they wero warned of tho nppronching
danger, they should hnvo left the town
and" tried to secure themselves on
higher ground, and when secure hnvo
thanked God in prayer for their deliverance, and when we aro warned
of tho suro destruction awaUing tho
wicked wc should seok to rise nbovo
the danger and thank God that He has
delivered us from eternal destruction.
I have little doubt but that God answered the prayers offered up by many
in the dying agonies, and thus snatched
them from eternal dunth. A very
touching incident is reported by some
of tho survivors who woro upon tho
banks: A child was coming down the
stream, kneeling on a raft in the attitude of prayer, and the raft camo to
chiso thut thoy could boo the big tears
rolling down tho cheeks and tho pallor of death upon the brow, aud they,
unable to lend auy assistance, shouted
to the child to keop courage. By and
byo the raft went under somo logs,
and tho child was not aeon on the surface again. I havo littlo doubt that
child was a Sunday school scholar.
Just at tho timo we aro in trouble wo
pray, but wo Bhould make tho exorcise
habitual, and thua prepare for the
change uf habitation that must take
place. St. John in the Revelation pictures thu destruction uf tho world, and
the cry of tho unredeemed unto
the rocka und the hills to cover them,
but the laat prayer lhat John sees will
bo uttered on earth will novor bo answered, for it will bo impossible to
hide from tho scrutinizing eye of God;
and tho lesson lo be drawn just hero
is to pray in faith now* nnd our prayers
will bo answered. Then I would
point to tho quickness of desolation in
theso. instances. Look at tho first
great flood, when only one family escaped; then look at lhe rapidity of destruction in tho cities of tho plain, Lot
and his family only having loft the city
a few hours whon it was swept out of
existence. So iu tho floods on tho
other aide of the lino: in the morning
tho valloy picturesque with the beau-
ties of nature; in thu ovening ten
thousand dead or dying, the valley a
scene ot desolation, the disaster coming upon many suddenly, ovcrtakig
rich and poor nlike, thousands floating
down to a suro watery grave, nnd iu
their terror and madness attending unutterable deBpuir, fighting for lifo—
tho beautiful valley with ila towns and
villages in their prosperity iu tho
morning; in the evoning a vast sea of
destruction. And tho losson taught
at Johnstown, and repeated at Seattle,
is that earth by tilings aro not eternal,
they are not durable and lasting, bub
fade away suddenly, nud if they do
uot Blip frotn our gra3p death comes
suddenly us a thief iu tho night and
carries us away from thom, and tbat
ia why tho advice is given, "Be ye
also ready." Then another lesson
taught ua ia the low, debased, degrading position a mau will sink to, whon
ho will rob tho dead nnd tho dying, as
wns witnessed in the Hungarians1
liendish robbery of trinkets nud rings
from tho dead, iu somo cases sovering
tho linger or ear; it is no wondor
lynching was resorled to, for n man
deserves lynching when ho gives wny
and gets so low us to rob (ho dead;
and tho lesson hero is that, while sin
will grow habitual to a man and carry
him down to participating in these
bnBost of crimes, tho gospel of the
Lord Jesus Christ lifts man up, out of,
and away from Bin, putting a new and
better nuture within him. Another
lusBon is taught ua in the help and
sympathy shown totho Buffering and
bereaved ones who survived tho disaster in each case; men giving their
timo, money, and in somo cases thcirlifo
in an effort to help those who needed
it. Many woro the noble deeds, husbands in despair trying to save their
wiveB nncffumilies- mothers clinging
to thoir babea, unwilling to seo them
perish, and preferring to oink with
them rather than givo them up, their
loved ones; and now provision ia being
made of clothes, money and food; from
nil parts sympathy wells up in substantial help, tho very heart of nations
being drawn out in tender pity for tho
suffering and needy., And this self-
sacrifice Ib seen in connection with re*
ligion, missionaries and Christnin
workers, seeing the masses exposed to
danger for want of spiritual help, sacrifice timo, money and, in many cases,
life, to rescue the pcriahing and make
the solitary places glad. The present
lesson teaches that God's floods of indignation will surely swoop upon us
and tho firo that never can be put out
will overtake us, and to avoid the tor-
riblo consequences wo Bhould escape to
tho mountain of God's holiness, or,
like Noah, seek the ark of Bafety, and,
having oursolvoB found safety, tell
otherB so that thoy may bo saved in
timo ond for otornity, and may God
mako iiaallflociiro.
