beforo the president, aud that tho delay is due to tho contention in Mon-
tina. Tho presidont mado no statement us to what he intended to do,

from the court by force. In the struggle that ensued several hot heuded-
membors uf Father McFadden's flock
took a hand and for a time it looked
as though a riot would bo precipatated
under the judge's nose. Another Catho-
olic when told to stand down, after
having been accepted, got very excited
aud shouted to the crown attorney
that Fathor McFadden had uo share
iu the killing of Polioe Inspector Martin for whusu murder he stood indicted. Ho declared ho was present and
saw the blow struck which felled Martin to tho earth and that Father McFadden had already escaped frum the
church and waB a milo away at tho

detention of the man as a witness, and
though ho protested that ho really
knew nothing whatever uf the circumstances ho wub locked up. It is not
unlikely that serious troublo will result if the crown persists in its present

Tbe Photograph Proves to be (hat ef n*
Old Part or Drl-lol, Eaglnnd.
Several months has passed since the
world has been informed through the
medium of the press of Prof. Willough-
by'a alleged mirage photograph, "The
Silent City," said to have been takon
at Glacier Bay in Alaska. Much haa
been written and printed upon the aubject and all manner of eonjectures
have been made, both aa to tho genuineness of the mirage and the locality
or city represented in the photograph.
Tho San Francisco Chronicle, of the
Ilth hist., says: "W. G. Stuart, an
employe of Welle, Fargo & Co., suw a
copy of the miruge photograph in a
Montgomery atreet shop window yesterday, nud in an instant recognize*?,
the locality represented in the picture:
For two or three years Mr. Stuurt waa
consul clerk under United States consul Luthrop at Bristol, England. He
was perfectly familiar with that city
and at once recognized the photograph
of 'The Silent City* as that of Bristol,
England. Hr. Stuart said tho photograph represents an old portion of tlto
city, the view being from a public park
on Brandon Hill. Thore is a Catho*
lie cathedral there, the main building
of wliich was completed about two
centuries ago. Just before ho left
Bristol, two years avo, work was being
commenced on tho two towers, and
the scaffolding was built juat sb it was
represented in 'The Silent City.' In
tho photograph alleged to be taken in
Alaska, is a lurge building to the left
of the cathedral. This ia the Royal
hotel. Just in front of the hotel is a
square known as College Gre n. The
Avon river runs through the oity, and
tho shipping is to be seen there right

Thrilling  Experience of Hr. Polls ot
Esquimalt,
In addition to the item already already published in the' Times concerning tho killing of a shark in Constance
Cove, Esquimalt, Mr. Potts furnishes
tho following:
About 0 o'clock on Friday morning
I noticed that my ducks did not take
to tho water aB usual, and looking to
find the cause 1 saw a large fi di swim*
miug in the cove, close to tho rocks.
I ran down to the water's eoge, but
the monster took tho alarm rt my ap*
proach and swum out into tho bay.
About 10 o'clock the fish i -turned,
and I then saw it was a big shark. I
stood nn tho edge of a lighter, and oa
the fish awam up alongside, I t.hrow on
axe at it. The weapon strujk it in
the back and inflicted a deep cut.
The pain of the wound caused the
shark to spring almost out of water.
It splashed and struggled, and in its
blind fury dashed onto the beach. I
called to my wifo to bring another axe,
and ran around to where the huge fish
was struggling. Boforo 1 could reach
tho spot, however, armed with another
axe, the shark had got afloat. I waded
into the water, when the monster oamo
straight at mo, turning over on its
back ready to seize mo, I watched
my opportunity, and aa tho fish camo
near enoutrh I drovo the edge of the
axe with my wholo force into its head.
The second blow caused the brute to
retire in haato, and it awam out into
the bay again; it soon returned, evidently with the intention of having
another try at mo. I had waded into
the water waist deep, and planted firmly on a fiat rock, I awaited iti ap*
proach. As the shark came near I
again threw tho axe, and again
was lucky enough to inflict n deep
wound, this time in its side. Instead
of retreating thia tune, tho monster
turned over, opened its jaws, and
came right for me. My wife had
promptly supplied me with a third use,
and as the shark swam close up, I
dealt blow after blow on its hoad- tlie
keen blade sinking into the bone at
every stroke. I sprang ashore, caught
up a long boat hook, and gotting a
good hold on the shark, with my wife's
assistance, I got the fish upon the
beach, where 1 put an end to its life.
After it was dead we measured it, and
found it to be 12 feet long and 2 feet
6 inches across the middle. The body
remained on tho beach for several
days, and wai viewed by crowds of
people, On opening it yesterday
morning I fouud several salmon, ft
large fish hook and soveral stones in
the stomach.

The Vancouver News, commenting on the piiBsu^o of Uio Southern
Hiiihvity bonua  by-law in this city,
hu^s itself in a vagao sort of u wuy
over  thu idea tlmt Vancouver will
bo the uctual terminus of the Wostminstor Southorn, if the Itoynl City
is to bo lho nominal terminus,   Tho
Itoynl   citizons aro not selfish, und
after they havo secured all the legitimate and possible benefits out of tlto
rond, which their ontotprisn nnd far-
sighted liberality huvo hastened, us
the News admits, by two or threo
yours, thoy will not grudge the peoplo of  thoir sister city all the advantages, renl and imaginary, which
will  naturally overflow  to  them.
The News, in speculating on the
probability of early connection of
the "salt water torminus" with the
Westminster Southern, looks upon
such  connection   ns  a  matter of
course, uud thinks that Vancouver
will not bo called upon for any pecuniary assistance.   That is a subject upon which any amount of speculation will be useless, as it will depend very much upon what terms
the promoters of tho Westminster
Southern may ho disposed to construct a branch line to Vancouver
within a given timo.   If the branch
line should bo built by othor parties,
as the News suggests is possible, wo
rather   think   that   the "terminal
city" will have to tap its pocket to
some extent,   lit any event, it is
probable that tho News will havo to
revise somewhat tho following complaisant unci slightly "hoggish" sentiment with which it concludes its
article on the subject: "Therefore,
the   people of Vancouver   can bo
assured that thoy will roup all the
benefits   that can  bo derived from
tho construction of tlie Westminster
nnd Southern Railway without being
call I'd  ujiou  to contribute one cont
tow(u*™3 tho expenditure necessary
for  thfifc purposo."   As to the fact
of un ultimate "short lim:" and second branch railwny connection with
VnuciUVor, no ono questions it; on
tin* a ntrtry, its speedy accomplishment is wlesired by both cities, and
tho prospect is that we shall have
besides eleotrio tramway connection
with, our sister city in tho not distant.future.    The moro speedy and
cheap the travel is betweon the two
oities the bettor for both.    In time,
we believe, the two, liko St. Paul
uml Minneapolis, for instance, will
be • practically one.   Jn tho meantime, however, Westminster will be
the actual us well as tlto nominal ter-
miiiu.1*: of dm Westminster Southern,
antl   until such timo as tiio royal
city reaches over the ridge and embrace:, it-; twin sister on Butrard Inlet, that ambitious city will have to
be content  with a  branch connection with tlie Westminster Southorn
ami   Fairhaven Railway, and  will
probably have lo pay for that, too, or
wait until it grows of itself.
VOLUME VU.-NO. 94.
At a recent meeting of tho Ontario Dental Society, says uu exchange, an interesting paper wan
rend by Dr. A. II. Hippie, of Stratford, on tho metal aluminum, in the
course of which Ito gave some interesting particulars as to its production. This line, light, silver-white
metal is suid to bu Uio most abundant in all nature, but, unfortunately, it is never found except in tho
shape of a compound with other materials which aro unwelcome and
from which it is difficult to free it.
Thus a cubic yard of compact clay
contains about 400 pounds of pure
aluminum, and ns $12 per pound
may be considered the present commercial value of the metal, tho
chemist who could succeed in disentangling the precious metal from its
clay would be able to get the
respectable little sum of §4,800 from
a wagon loud of material that would
cost but a fow cents. There is no
wonder, then, that most of the
chemists in tlio world huvo had a
try at reducing aluminum to a
metallic state. It is refreshing to
know that, there is something Unit
even Mr, Edison cannot do in tiio
way of applied science, and there is
something old timisli and fascinating
in the notion us we look at a bank
of brown clay that it contains in
largo quantities n bright silver-colored, useful metal that would make
the fortune of the onlooker if ho
could only get ut it. Only enough
has beon done at present to show
that tiie aluminium is thore. Do*
ville's method did tliat some years
ago. Dr. Netto, of Dresden, now
thinks ho is on the truck, and the
Krupp ironworks people at Essen
have taken up his plan, and state
confidently that they will bo ablo to
produco burs nnd ingots of the metal
at a prico not much more than thut
at which steel was sold half a century ago. There is no doubt a great
future beforo this tantalizing metal
if the scientists can only persuade it
to leave the clay.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Gold-bearing quartz, assaying over
$375 a ton, has been found in China,
and it is rumored that an American
company proposes to work the
mines.
That Mexico hns been making
satisfactory progress under the
regime of President Diaz, thore can
be no mistake. His policy lias been
to preserve peace and to introduce
thoso reforms of wliich Mexico stood
sadly in need. Railways lmve, been
constructed, a boon of priceless value
to u country with a dearth of navigable rivers. In the postal system
marvellous improvements have been
effected in tho transport of mails,
and the number of communications
sent by mail hus risen from 5,1G9,-
894 in 1878 to 27,000,000 in 1888.
In 188G uluiie 5,000 kilometers of
telegraph lines wero constructed,
antl tho system is steadily growing
and attaining respectable proportions. In ''ducation very important
reforms have been inaugurated. Tho
primary solioola have been reorganized, tlm training of teachers looked
after and a female college established
to provide hotter educational facilities for women, while the nrta and
'Sciences have uot been forgotten in
the encouragement of academies of
painting, music and sculpture. Tho
police foroti has been made moro
efficient, us tin* quieter condition of
the oountry probably proves. Iu
tho establish tne ut of benevolent nnd
ehuritabli' ..u-titiuioiiB tho govorn-
meut has iiut withheld its uid. To
develop the resource*, of the country
tho silk industry das been started
by the intioduutioii of the silk worm,
and attention has been paid to the
fisheries nnd the cultivation of tho
vino. A sanitary board has boen
established despite opposition. What
is important as providing a basis for
tho effecting of these internal reforms, Mexico has satisfactorily arranged matters with her European
creditors, and has been able to obtain the aid of foreign capital in
pushing some of .the sohemes referred
to. This is the picture of things reported to tho British government by
their representative in Mexico. An
impression has existed in some
quarters that tho rule of President
Diaz wns somewhat absolute, though
the lepubbe wns supposed to be the
free ohoioe'of the people. However
that may be, the record of liis rule
■hows signs of a progressive spirit
that will rescue Mexico from her
baok ward plnoo among the nations.
Ward McAllister says it is not
proper to use the prolix "Mr." in ad-
dressing a letter to a gentleman.
"Always 'esquire/ " ho says; " 'Mr.'

suposed that "esquire" ought never

A new device for the prevention

tho whistle, shuts off steam and puts
on the brake. Unfortunately the
cost of applying tho uew device
would be heavy, so that it will probably he some time before it is extensively adopted.
The '-Temple of Heaven," which
was burned in China the other day,
was one of the most conspicuous of
the edifices devoted to state religion
in Pekin. It was fivo storeys high,
surmounted by a dome-like roof.
The interior was particularly noteworthy for a number of pillars supporting tho roof, which were faced
with gold and otherwise splendidly
adorned. The temple was surrounded by a number of spacious build-
iugs, most of thom devoted to tho
service of the priests attached to the
sacred edifice.
Professor Thun, a Russian statistician, states thut in 2,009 cases of
letting-holdiugs in tho province of
Moscow, tho average rent received
was only 3 roubles 0G kopeks, whilo
the average taxation was 10 roubles
30 kopeks. Stepniak, nuother statistical, reports that iu thirty-seven
provinces of European Russia tho
class who were formerly state peasants pay iu taxes of every description
no less than 92.75 per cont, of the
averago net produco of their land.
If the peasant tiros of this, and attempts to leave his village, his liabilities follow him.

Joseph Smith, the son of tho
founder of Mormonism, has recontly
published an olaborato article in opposition to polygamy. Answering
a late work by P. D. Richards, who
claims that on July 11, 1843, God
roveulod to the senior Joseph Smith
the principle and doctrine of polygamy and commanded its observance,
but says that "in consequence of the
prejudice and opposition, it wus not
considered prudent at the time,"
young Smith makes tho vory neat
point that thero was singular inconsistency between tho prudence of
tlio church in concealing, and the
indiscretion of the Almighty in making tho revelation- at a timo when
it was inadvisable for his saints to

"I havo oaten tho egg of many wild
birds, from the plover to tho wild gooso,
and havo found Bomo of them very good
and many of them very bud," said an opl-
curo to a New York Mall and Express roportor, "but tho ruffed grouse's egg is
simply a morsel fit for tho godB. Tiio pampered paluto of no Oriental potentate ovor
lingpririgly dallied with so rich and perfect
n delicacy, and yot I never ate grousc'B oggs
elsewhere than on tho rough, uncovered tablo of somo backwoodsman's cabin, tho Inst
pluco in tho world whoro the epicure might
expect to havo his taste satisfied, lot alone
glorified. How woro they prepared? Biiuply
boiled. Boiled until tlto whito and yolk
woro thoroughly cooked. Aruffed grouse's
egg is big enough to muko two dainty bites.
It isn't at all likely that you will over have
tiio opportunity of breakfasting ou tills delicacy, as it Is moro than scarce nowadays.
Besides, tho law places n prico on ruffed
grouse's oggs that put them out of tho
reach ot tho ordinary run of egg-cnters. In
tlio estimation of tho law theso eggs nro
worth HO apiece—$120 a dozen—nnd they
are worth it. But in cuso the rare happi-
iicssofsiUingdowntoanicalwitlindo-*enof
tlioin may occur to you somo thno,I had bettor tell you how thoy should bo disposed of.
Don't cut a grouse's egg in two, nor dig the
meat from tho shell with a spoon, Either
would bo profanation. Gently tap the small
end of tho egg on your plate until the shell
Is cracked. Then peel tho shell carefully
off of tho meat. Tho shell is very brittlo
and tho richness beneath it vory tender.
When that is bared of its covering it lies
in your hand a velvety olipso, whito as
ivory. Do not suit or popper it or you spoil
it. Bite off half of it. The meet, both tho
ivory whito and tho old gold yelk, will melt
in your mouth liko somo rich, creamy paste,
and ita flavor is indescribably delicious.
"It has been a long timo since I tickled
my paluto with ruffod grouse's eggs. Thoy
uro only in souson for a fow days in May,
whon they aro frosh laid in tho nest, and of
course a porson has to bo right on tho
ground to tako advantage of them.
"tfext to tho ruffed grouse the pinnated
grouse, or prairie chicken, lays tho boat
eggs for eating. I havo known as high as
SOO a dozen to bo paid for prairio chicken
eggs in Chicago, although in the early days
of that city, whito tho surrounding prairio
Btill swarmed with that gamo bird, its'ogga
woro more abundant in tho market than
hens' eggs woro. I have no doubt that eggs
of nil the numerous grouse family aro superior to hens'oggs, but I never ato any but
the two mentioned.
"In this country there is no such thing as
the business ot gathering wild eggs, but in
England the collecting of wild birds1 eggs
for the tablo is a regular calling, particularly plover eggs. Tho eggs of tho plover is n
great dolicacy among epicures there. Go
into any of lho poultry shops in English
towns ami citie3 during April and May
and you will seo an enticing display of
plover, partridgo and other edible eggs
of wild birds. Thoy aro usually shown In
baskets fashioned in imitation of moss*
lined birds' hosts, ench basket containing a
dozon oggs. Plover eggs aro the most abundant, but baskets lttudo up from selections
from different kinds of wild egga aro common. Plover eggs aro sold for four shillings a di zen—about one dollar--and,
courso, oo not enter very largely into the
marketing of tho poor. The hunting of
plover eggs is a profession with a
certain class of shiftless men nnd
boys. The finding of tho nest re*
quires a groat degree of skill and cunning,
and tho business is not over profitable
to tho nest hunters. Throo dozen eggs
a day is a big day'u hunting. Tho dealer
hns a way of testing tho eggs to satisfy
himself as to thoir soundness, und it is
rare, indeed, that two or three bud ones are
not found la ouch nost. Tho collector is
paid thirty cents a dozon for his Bound
eggs. Thousands of dozens of plover eggs
aro uuid to bo collected every spring. Tlioro
ia uo law against tho robbing of nests, hut
tho severe uud gonor.il laws against trespassing are a constant mouaco to tho egg-
huntors.
"The eggs of some wild fowl rank high
among edlblo wild eggs, with tho accent on
the rank. The oggs of all wild ducks, with
tho exception of tho wood or summer duck,
and tho ogg of tho wnter hen, aro strong
and tough. Why thoy Bhould bo I don't
know, ns those birds, or the most of them,
aro clean, vegetable feeders. Tho wood
duck ogg is a passably good urticlo of food.
A boiled wild goose ogg, if it woro round,
would mako a flrat rate bowling bull, but a
wild swim's egg is very palatable. Tho ogg
of tlio wild tnrkey is hotter than that of any
domestic fowl, Tho semi-wild fowls, as tho
guinea hen and tho peafowl, Iny ogga that
uro more grateful than an ordinary hen's
egg to tho palate of tho epicure. Tho
speckled, humming-top shaped egg of tho
screeching guinea hen is tho best poultry
yard egg for the tuble that the farmer can
sell. Speaking of tho poultry yard naturally suggests tho pigeon. The egg of thnt
bird is utterly worthless for food. Tho wild
pigeon's egg turns to milk when boiled, and
smells liko rancid oil. Tho quail's egg is a
sweet, creamy, but insipid littlo morsel,
and, like tlio cherry, you cun't mako two
bites of it. I intend to try how sparrow
ogga will touch tho epicurean taste, and if
they warrant it, will try and introduco
them ns a tablo dainty. That might bo a
good wny toward abating thoso littlo
nuisances."

Durlnpf the spring vacation of tho present
| yoar, tho writer of this, ln company "With
I several othor BtudenU of Cornell TJniver*
J sity, took a trip to Now York City, It was
I rayfirstvisitto the city, and, of course,
t tlioro wore many new and interesting thinga
> to bo seen. Two of us who wero partlou-
;. larly interested in n***rlcultural affairs Bep*
j orated oursolvos from the others and visited
I tho main points of interest whioh all must
I soo who visit Now York. My purpose in
I writing this ia to tell, exactly as it hap-
I pencd, how I was "taken in" by a sharper,
I and how, if I had not read just how such
I scoundrels ileoco innocents, I might havo
I easily parted with what money I had with
mo.
My frioud spent the second night Of our
visit with friends up town and agreed to
mcot mo at the hotel at an oarly hour the
following morning. Atthe appointed time
lio-''line, but had not yot eaten breakfast,
while I had; so ho went to a restaurant,
agreeing to meet mo again in twenty
minutes, In tho meantime I sauntered
about tho street watching the sights and
studying tho people who wero going to
their-work, Whilo thus occupied, I was
asked by nn honest-looking stranger if tho
station about a blook down the Btreet was
thi1 Bridgo station 1 I replied that it was,
and then remembering how, the day previous, niy friend and I had made themis-
talx of climbing up on the wrong side, I
walked along with him and put him right
Just arter pa rting with him and turning to
go back to thi; hotel-Iwaa accosted by a man
who held out his hand, and said: "Isn't
thia Mr. Drew from Winona?" My flrst
Impulse was either to turn on myheelor
ca. I a policeman; then, on second thought, I
remoittbcrod that I had registered nt tho
hotol as from Itliaca, and not from Winona,
and this must lio so**ao ono who had known
me in the latter pluoo.
I told hiin tliat I did not rocognize him.
Thon lie said ins namo was Cummingsand
that, ho wns born and brought up in Winona,
and tf* at Ins fathor onco ran a foundry
therr*,'tamingUiostrcot.Iremomboredhcar-
ing of tho family, and know that thero wero
several boys, nono of whom I had known
personally- I asked lum how ho recognized
mc-nnd ho answered that ho had known
mo by sight all his llfo-that housed to boo
mo going to and from sohool ln Winona. Uo
then said that ho had not visited Winona
for llvo yoars, and began asking questions
aboutmanyof tho people of tho placo. He
showed an Intimate knowlodgo of the city
and of ovonts which had happened several
years ago; but ho knew almost nothing of
what had occurred lately. Ho said he was
traveling for a firm In Philadelphia and
would havo to start for that city in loss than
an hour, In tho moantimo ho wanted mo
to go with him about a block to a tlckot offlco whoro ho had loft his grip, as he wanted to show me a fow samples of a now kind
of cloth which wosbeing manufactured by
tho lirm ho was representing. I told him
of my engagement at tho hotol, and ho said
that wo would bo back in time for mo to
mcobit, so wo walked on, talking all tho
time about Winona people. So busy were
wo that wo must havo walked at loastflvc
or six blocks when I suddenly remembered
my engagement, and said wo must havo
passed tbo place he had spoken of. Ho
looked up at tho building we, wero passing
|md said t
"Buro onough wo have beon so long talk-
ig that wo havo como A long ways out of
ir way." Wo then turned about and
itarted back. Just then wo mot a villain*
, lus-looking fellow who spoke to my companion and thoy had a fow words together
which I did not hear distinctly. Then wo
■ven t on, I was in a hurry to got back to
iho hotol, but my companion evidently waa
Jn no hasto. Ho Btill pliod mo with questions about tho poopio of Winona and particularly about an old schoolmate of his,
whom wo will call Charlie Brown, We had
gone but a short distanco from tho placo
whoro wo had mot tha villainous-looking
follow referred to, whon my companion
Btoppcdat a stand on tho corner, and, ask-
Ingif I smoked, bought some cigars. As I
answered that I did not, ho ordered a glass
of lemonade for me, while ho lighted a
olgar. When wo turned from tho standi
noticed that we wero not going in tho samo
diroetlou as boforo, but knowing how oasily
a porson becomes confused in rogard to tho
points of tho compass, I said nothing, but
went along with my companion, Btill thinking and talking about the poopio wo both
had known in Winona. Wo soon camo to
ih :"iii.'lcot-(ifilco," and my companion,aftor
taking a look through tho partially opon
do t, pushed itopon and walked in. Thoro
wm -• young man thoro who gavo Ur,
Guraniings hu grip when he askod for It,

bi. an looking ovor tho samplos of cloth

M.' i vi-min-'twas asking mo to pick out a
sample piece of cloth whioh would, In
in? opinion, niaka agood suit of clothos for
tliu aforesaid Charlie Brown, a man camo
lata tbe room aud askod tho young man
tit the desk for nttokot to Joplin, Mo. He
WOS a fat good-natured-looking man of
about forty, ondworoa good suit of clothes,

ov goirgles und a "hiokory" shirt. Tho
ycunr man took him to a mapwhiohhung
on tho wallcmdshowed him whatroadsho
w. -uid pass over and told him tho prico of
ticket to Joplin. Tho Joplin man then
i.._i tf a ticket for a "niggor" would coBt tho
samo. After some conversation about a
Boeond-olasB tlokot for a "niggor," the
young man said he would step out and find
tho boss who had gono out a few minutes
boforo. While he was gone tho Westerner
sat down on tho opposito sido Of the tablo
from us, and fell Into conversation with Mr.
Cummings,
"Say," Bald he, "I don't wont to aot greon
nortohavoyoulaughotme; a funny
thing happened to mo this morula' ond I
don't soo through it exactly, I went into a
dime museum, and a feller in thore como a
littlo trick on mo with somo cards and boforo I got away I loBtono hundred toad*
skins,"
"Toadskli-Bt" Baid Mr. Cummings, "what
do you mean by that terml"
"Don't you know what toadsklns isi"
said tho Westerner, pulling out a roll of
bills. "Thusonro toadsklns;" and pulling
out'a gold pioee, "this boro Is a yullcr-
jnukefc* That's what wo call 'om ln Mia*
soury,"
"You aro vory oaroloss to enrry monoy
in that way," Bald Mr. Cummings. "You
should buy a draft, thon thore would bo uo
danger of any ono stealing it from you."
"Woll, may bo I had hotter," said tho
stranger. "I ama sort of green hand in
this businoss. I brought a lot of cuttle
from Mtssoury, and then I went over iuto
(■imiiiviic-.it to visit a Bister thatl hadn't
soonBiuco the war, whon sho run off with
ti Yankee soldier. Thoro was a kind of
coolness between her and the old man after
sho ran away, but when ho died awhile
ngol ho loft her a lot of toadskius, mid I
havo been over to carry'em to her. Bui I
wasgoin'to toll you how the f oiler got my
monoy. Ho had four cards with pictures of
base-ball mou on ono sido of 'om; throo wa3
bluo and ono was red. Ho hand led thom
cards most awful slick and I thought 1 could
soo whoro tho red was; bub when Ibet I
lost -most every timo; but; I grabbed tho
cards whon I camo away ond I've got 'om
hore."
Hereupon ho pulled out a bandana handkerchief and unwrapped tho four cards ho
had been speaking of.
"Mow," snid ho, addressing Mr. Cummings, "I can't handle theso cards ns slick
as thut feller did; butl'llbet you can't toll
which tho red ono is," and ho laid them
down ouo at a timo on tho tablo, purposely allowing us, as ho did so, to seo which
was tlio red one. Mr. Cummings bet tho
cigars with bim, and of courso won. Just
at thin juitcturo tho fact that Iwas Ina
don ol thieves Hashed across my mind, and
I arose from thu tablo and started for tho
door. Imbrathan half oxpeeted to lind it
locked, nnd was never boforo lu a placo
whero I really thought I needed a revolver,
but I was happilv disappointed, and as I
Btood in tho doorway I told Mr. Cummings (!)* who was of course trying to got
ma to como bnck, that if ho wanted any
thing moro of mo ho could como around ta
the hotel at noon nndlwouldn't bo thero.
Bight at tills point I mado a great mistake, J should havo mado a noto of tbo
street and number; but I was no glad to
get out into freo air again, and so afraid
that my frlond would tiro of waiting
for mo and bc gono, that I thought only of
reaching tho hotel as soon as possible.
As I walked along, I tried to study out
how this man who called himself Cummings
and who had such an intimate knowledge
of Winona and its poopio, had found out
that I camo from it. It was not till after I
had retired tliat night that I romembored
that during my walk early that morning
with tho man wbo wantod to find the Bridge
station, I learned thnt ho was from a place
near Winona, and had told him that I was
from- Winona and hod always attended
school thore.
Of courso, this Cummings (1) had followed
from tho hotel whero he had learned my
name from tho register and had been vory
fortunate in hearing mo toll tho stranger
that I was from Winona, That ho had onco
lived in Winona I havo not tho slightest
doubt, for ho know all about tho oarly history of tho city aud its people; but whether
his namo was Cummiugs or Smith is a matter of question.—James W. Drew, in Kural

CANADA'S VIOLENCE.
Story of.nn American Clrctia Elephant
Famous for nio Mud Fits.
Many interesting and famous elephant;
havo boon favorites of thoAmortan.il public long beforo tbo lato Jumbo's success
ful debut, says a writer iu Chambers' Journal. Ono of theso, known as Canada, was i
desporato character. When In one of hi-
tantrums "ho did as much misohief ns a tornado," to use tho American showman'■-
words—tossing hacks iuto tho air and tear
ing down signs and lamp-posts. Ho Wat*
sent with tho rest of tho monagerio to ;
farm, and when thero had ono of his ina;
Hts. Bushing into the stable-yard ,fn a fov
minutes ho killed two bufftilos, aanoral cow
a couple of elks, sovoral horses tun! actinia!
Ho would scino an animal, toss it in t ho uir
catch it on Its tusks, and then either jiiiii oi
trample tho life out of it. Ho then sallied
out for town, and tho popular oxoitemonl
can bo imagined. A trap wus set with ti
long ponderous chain with an enormous
cornor-stono at its end to outanglothe animal's legs and hold him. A man then run
out In sight of Canada, and the clcphunt iu
stantly rushed aftor him. Tho trap was
successful as far as making tho chain
and stono fast to him, but ho kopt
right on, and would have caught tho man.
who was a fast runner, had uot tho latter
jumped down into an unfinished collar
of a now houso aud ran upanarrowflich'
of stops on the opposito Bido. Tho elephant
jumped down aftor him as easily as a dot-
would, with tho big stone clattering alter
him. Fortunately, tho stono was largu
enough to stick, wedged against tho wails
on each sido of tho stairway, and Canada
was fast, but it was a closo shave for the
man. Thoy managed to securo the savage
animal with moro chains, and thon went to
work to conquer him. Ab tho account
graphically doscrlbos it, "they woro out big
clubs on him, flrod loads of buckshot Jmo
bis trunk and oars, and boat aud toi It* rod
him for hours until ho howled m token of
surrender." Tho moment ho was loose,
however, ho gnvo a S*ell of rugo, dashed out
of tho collar and started to kill. Every ouo
How for liis lifo, but ho was tired and took
up his position undor cover of threo bay-
stacks, hunting all who ventured near hint.
Buckshot flrod into his head only cheeked
his wild rushes, and whenever ho thought
peoplo wero on tho othor side of tlio stuck
from him ho tried his host to topple tho hny
over on thom. Tho light went on for throo
days and nights, during whieh time ho had
not a bito to cat—for ho was too angry even
to take any of tho hay around him-und not,
a drop of water. At length, despairing of
saving him, tho shotguns woro c'xchnn-*ei|
for heavy rifloB, and several big bullets a;

scarcely eat, sho was so fearful

tho poodlo's tender sensibilities by the

Hryan O'Lynn had no boots for to wear,
So he came to Westminster to buy him a pair.
"I'll have one pair of thick ones and one pair of thin,
If I can find ). Rousseau's," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He hunted the stores all along the main route,
Says he, "The right one I've not yet found out.
I want j. Rousseau—I'll buy only from him,
For he sells the cheapest," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He stepped a little west of McKenzie street,
He met Rousseau's sign—sure it was a great treat;
He lifted the latch, and Jim stood within.
' I've found it at last," says Bryan O'Lynn.
We showed him both Calf Boots, Kip and Cowhide,
The ones we praise mostly, without seams at the side.
We have Boots of all kinds, from Quebec and Berlin;
:' Sure you have boots for the million," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He bought him his boots, which of course were no trash,
He paid down the money, for we sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "lie not taken in,
But buy from J. Rousseau," says Bryan O'Lynn.
'If there is a leak in the toe or side of your shoe,
Just take it to Rousseau, that's all you need do;
He will peg it or patch it just while you are in,
And the charge seems like nothing," says Bryan O'Lynn.

end on tho gallows. This rascal is
supposed to havo killed many poople,
Indians aud whites, but no clear case has
yet been proved against him. Among
tho murders with which ho is crudited
ia that of an Italian, who waa barbarously murdered up the river somo four
yeara ago: A certain witness to tho
deed was required at thu time to prove
tho case against "Murdering Dick,"
but this man was not to bo found,
having fled to the States. Not long
ago this mau was forced to Ily from
his refuge and haa returned to British
Columbia. The authorities aro now
uu his track, and if hh capt ore is successfully accomplished "Murdering
Dick" may decorate the gallows before
many months.

Tho sealing schooner Mary Ellen,
Capt. Alox. McLean, arrived at San
Francisco on the Oth inst., thirty-four
days from Sand Point. To a reporter
of tho San Francisco Chronicle, Capt,
McLean accounted for his schooner's
long voyage by saying that she had
head winds nearly nil the way down.
She put 111 at tho Gulf of South Alaska
on the way, and Capt. McLean wont
on a prospecting tour. Ho was convinced that there was good mineral
ground in the region of tho gulf, and
there ho spent soveral days, locating
claims. Two men wero left iu chargo
of the mines und the Maty Ellen sailed
for San Francisco. She brought down
over 1,800 skins as a result of the season's work. Capt. McLean snid that
tho sealing business hud, on the wholo,
been 11 fsiluro this season, not over
half a dozen vessels mado any money
for thoir owners. Ho considered lho
cruise of lhe Mary Ellon an unsuccessful one, us tliis was the least paying
trip she has ever made. Plenty of
neals were sighted, but tho weather
•tVas unfavorable fur the hunt. Howover, ttie schooner will yield something
ovor 810,000, for her owners. The
trip of tho Mary Ellen since she left

of the linnie commodity. The packing;
scasou in Alaska is now ut tho close-,
and an estimate of tho probable production ef that region can, wtth some-
degree of cerlainty, bo ventured upou.
With tho cargo of tho Bertha tho receipts In. this port fur the season are
130,075 cases. This ih of course exclusive of the 30,000 eases of the
wrecked Wildwood and 13,800 caBes
of the steamer Aneon, which makes
43,800 cases, regarding whioh thero is
nu uncertainty of them over reaching
tho market. Tho loss on the Alaska,
pack for this Benson is estimated by
competent experts to bo at least GO per
cent. They think that if tho pack
foots up 300,000 cases for tho yoar
their expeditions will be more than
realized. The pack of tho Columbia
rivor aggregates 330,000 cases, which
is below the pack of 1888 by 70,000
cases, but thu defloumey of the Oregon,
pack is more than mado up by tho excess of the Frnser river production,
which is considerably increased over
that of last yoar.--& F, Examiner,
