valuable specimens of ore from the
Wild West mino fur assay here. The
rock is very similar in quality to that
from the Eureka, which Mr. C, P.
Jones, a New York expert, employed
by Mr. Douglas, has found to assay
from $30 to $1,900 to the ton.
ThB Lower Hydraulic Co., in whioh
Mayor Grunt, Mr. Morris Moss and
other prominent Victorians are largely
interested, have already spent $18,000
011 their claims. They have built a
flume two miles long, 33x32 feet, with
a fall of from 110 to 120 feot; inthe
construction of which 3,200 pounds of
nails were used. Three hundred thousand feet of lumber hnve been cut, and
the company expect to commence piping about the 21st of this month.
At the Eureka mine, managed by
Mr. Douglas and owned by the Standard Oil Company, twelve men are at
work. They have sunk a 9x6 shaft
100 feet, and are working on the see*
ond hundred by contract at $45 per

mouthy servicu has, howover, been
promised.—Colonist,

The HcIarM-BMs €o.M Sew Hills visited aad described.
It may be safely asserted that thore
is nothing like the McLaren-Ross
mills in the province of British Colum*
bia. A Columbian reporter visited
the buildings yesterday afternoon and
took a careful survey pf the wholo
{ilace. Nobody wonld think of ever
ooking at the numerous buildings
scattered over the extensive area of
cleared land, before having .thoroughly
inspected the mill proper, situated upon the bank of the river. Tho building is magnificent in its dimensions,
measuring 455 hot long by 72 broad,
and is about 45 feet in height, divided
iuto two stories. But it is the con*
struction of the building, rather than
ito vast proportions that strikes the
visitor with admiration. Every plunk,
beam, post and pillor used is an sound
as a dollar, uniting the extreme of
strength with beauty of finish. Nothing here ia carelessly tacked together
in tho slap-bang* hurry-up si/le only
too common in the present day. Everything looks as if it were meant to last
for centuries, and all the bourns are
dove tailed nnd morticed in u manner
that nmkes nails superfluous Natural
growth ship knees aro let info each
beam along tho walls in tho upper
room, and tho joists of tho floor are
titanio. The run-way for getting the
logs from the boom to the rip saw is
built of huge square beams firmly bolted together, and strong euough apparently to hold the weight of tho biggest
tree thut ever stood in British Columbia. The entire building is flooded
with light and perfect ventilgtion is
providbd by means of open lattice
work all the wuy along the Bide of the
building on the ground floor and' upstairs. At intervals there arc spaces
in the ground floor in which tite beds
for tbe machinery are bott-g laid.
Those beds are built of solid granito
and cement, resting upon heavy planking, which again rests on piles' almost
level with the water. There is something eminently restful to tho mind in
gazing at aud admiring those ponderous masses of solid masonry from
which protrude, at regular intervals, thick iron bolts, some of
them encased In iron pipe, to
allow for an inch or bo of dtfle'-eucc iu
the bed-plate of the machine. Needless
to Bay, tho machinery will be of the
latest and most improved design. Upstairs there is not a post or pilar to
break the viow and ono is almost op*
pressed with tho vast size of the pluce.
The roof is covered with galvanized
corrugated iron, the work of Messrs.
E. S. Scoullar & Co., of this city. The
addition of this impervious material to
the roof, has greatly added, nit only
to its safety, but to its ap; 1 ■tiranci*.
Whitewash is being liberally .used
throughout the entire building,' Taken
as a whole, this grand building ' is a
masterpiece of tho carpenter's nrt and
a credit to its designer. A lew yards
removed from the mill is tho boiler
house, in course of construction. This
building is composed of large granite
blocks and cement. The floor will be
of cement and the roof of iron; the
only wooden articles in the building
will be two doors, so not the slightest
apprehension of fire damaging this edifice oan be entertained. The walls are
tvo feet thick and the building itself
is a complete square. Immediately
adjoining the boiler house is the burner. The foundation of this appurtenance has just been completed; lt is
not of the light and airy description of
architecture, the walls are nearly five
feet thick, seven feet above ground,
and on this solid base will be reared
a superstructure of iron to reach a
height of 140 feet. The apertures to
supply the draught for tho furnace are
furnished with iron doors, and an im*
mense iron grate will sit upon tho
masonry insido. One would imagine
that such a great receptacle would
easily consume all the refuse slabs, sidings, edgings and sawdust from the
mill, but thoso who know, say it is not
u particle too large, and will be put to
it to burn up all the mill stuff. Another
admirable arrangement iB the disposal
of the smoke from the boiler house.
Tho smoke will puss through a great
pipe or funnel between the h use and
the burner, and entering the latter,
will be consumed there. All these
buildings rest upon piles, and thoy in
their turn, rest on the hard puu. One
little portable saw milt hai cut all the
lumber, great and small, used in the
construction of the mill; it its an old,
but valuable pioee of machinoiy, run*
ning, not alone tlio saws, but the iron
turning lathes and planers and other
machinery iu the artificers' shop adjoin*
ing. In this shop are the forges and
every other facility for tho working of
iron. Tha long, heavy bolts to hold
the mill machinery on the beds are
made, threaded and finished here; also
tho steel shafti to be used in the mill
are planed, turned and trimmed as desired. A force of skilled machinists is
kept busy at this work. Tho branch
railway line running along the wost
side of tho milt grounds and connecting half a milo back with thu main
line, lies awaiting the ties and rails.
It may be mentioned as the dawn of a
new epoch in Westminster's maroh of
progress, that the buildings will be lit
by electricity generated on the premises. The dwellings of tho workmen
are situated a few hundred yards back
from the bank of the river, and are
comfortable and commodious places of
abode. Tho water alongside the main
building and wharves will bo deep
enough to allow the largest ship likely
to enter the Fraior a safe betth. The
mills are expected to begin work about
the month of March, 1890, with a
large stiff of workmen nnd plenty of
orders. _______

We hopu   tbat tho city council
will   uot  allow 11 feeling which it
evidently mistakes for prudence to
get quito awny with its judgment
in   the water-works   mutton    Its
proposition nt lust meeting—or, perhaps wo should sny its resolution—
to lot tho matter I'm over until the
New Yetiv, certainly boars the appearance of inexcusable delay; especially when wo remember that, at
tho public meeting held beforo the
by-law   was   voted, n   pledge was
given that commissioners should be
elected, und   the matter placed in
their Lands as soon ns tv scheme had
been favorably reported upon by an
expert,   That stage has now been
reach. .1.   A considerable delay (for
which the council is not responsible)
has  flnudy  occurred;    and  this
makes   it  all  tho more necessary
tlmt Ihey should use every effort
to  avoid  further  delay;   but   instead of   rising   to the  situation,
they sacra   inclined to  shelve  tho
whole   matter  for   two or  three
niontl .,   We understand that the
diiticu ty which the Aldermen hope
to "frieze out" by projecting it into
midwinter is the mode of appointment, and tenure of  office of the
.water commissioners.   At the meeting  already referred   to, the ratepayer; were informed that they were
to elect tho commissioners, and we
confess we cannot see any objection
to that course.   It might bo well to
provide n qualification  similar to
that  governing tho voting on the
bonus by-law, so that   the mutter
should bo in the hands of those who
paid the piper; but, that provision
being made, what is the objection to
a nomination and election of commissioners, just as aldermen or legislators are uominated and elected?
If   tho vast importance of   putting
good men in the position will not
secure tho olection of good mon, no
amount of legal tinkering will!   As
for  duration  or term of oilice, the
first commissioners should certainly
be elected for a term long enough to
cover the time of construction of tho
works.   If the undertaking is to bo
carried   economically, to a speedy
and -successful issue, it must be taken
up and dealt with as a whole, and
not in any nibbling, hand to mouth
fashion.   Every part of the work
must lio in sight and, in a sense, in
hand, from the very first, and this
of courso would be impossible if the
personnel of the board of commissioners  was   continually changing.
Wo have seen so much to praise in
the conduct of the city council during the year, that we are reluctant
to speak in an opposite sense; but
we do feel   that the great necessity
for using all possiblo speed in this
matter   does   not   seem   to  have
sufficiently    impressed    itself
tho   aldermanio    mind.     Two
three   months' delay now, according   to   the    best    estimates
can procure of the probable timo
required I'or construction, will mean
the endurance of an additional dry
season without water.   Prudence is
commendable in nearly every undertaking, but there is such a thing as
having un excess of it.   When it
comes   to standing still for fear of
s.beppit-r on one's own shadow, it is
time, n.i Patrick would say, to "call
a. halt,'
man than the model, or ho would
cease to bo an interesting villain,
but the master of tho art nover forgets that the scoundrel must be
humanized with some redeeming
qualities. Tako Nancy, for example, in Oliver Twist; in the drawing of this charaoter thero are thoso
touches which convince the reader
that aftor all Sykes' mistress is a
possiblo and likely specimen of
many of her kind. She is, in fact,
no puppet, neither is she an overgrown monstrosity, bnt a woman,
depraved, low, vile, if you please,
still a woman, Compare her with
any similar character from Zola, the
heroine of L'Assoinnoir, for example, and at once will be perceptible
the one great feature which marks
Dickens' creation a true and at tho
same time wholesomo portrait to
contemplate, whilst tho other is a
filthily grotesque picture, which
makes tho reader exclaim in indignation that the thing lia-.s uo likeness to thi3 average of lho class it is
supposed to represent. The novel
of to-day in written with no othor
purpose than to sell, and that whicli
will suit the tickle mental palato of
the novel reading public for the moment is always on hand. Thus it is
that novels of real sterling merit are
becoming rarer clay by day. The
novelist, if he is to keep his namo
beforo the public, must produce ut a
fabulous rate, or he will find that
somo other individual has stepped
into his placo. Looking down the
publishers' lists, it will astonish one
to seo what a large quantity of reading mattor ono writer can throw* off
in a fow months. Whether good or
bad seems to matter little so long in
the stream is kept flowing, and today the battle of tho books is merely
a conflict between authors as to who
can writo tbo greatest number of
startling incidents in the shortest
space of time.
A day or two ago there appoared
a paragraph in our columns to tho
effect th vt a few gentlemen had
banded themselves into a debating
society for thoir mutual amusement
and benefit. The item in question
went r :i to state tlmt at their next
meotin-- a debate would take place
on tlm u'ject of the value of novel
readinj It is doubtful if the assertion th ,t the perusal of fiction has
been pi jiluctive of moro good than
evil cut bo substantiated. What is
a novel I Wo have heard old ladies
who ha 1 the most deep rooted objection* lo light literature, strongly
oommeud a certain class of fiction
as being good even for Sunday
reading; it is only fair to say, however, presumably on tho ground of
the writings appearing in u quasi-
religious publication. There are
few porsons of sense existing in
those enlightened times, we opine,
who could be found to entertain
very strong feelings ngainst the
works of Scott or Lytton, Thackeray
or Dickens, but almost as soon as
we tread beyond this magic selection, opinions begin to conflict,
George Elliot may be added to the
list, as, perhaps, may bo ono or two
more who have succeeded in making
famous names, and whoso works,
therefore, are little affected by individual opinion. The valuo
harm of fiction reading seems
' only capable of solution by the test
of iti faithfulness to naturo. A
novel which holds the mirror up to
naturo and presents an idealized
picture of true humanity cannot
nave very much of ovil in its *om*
position, it ie when writers exaggerate into grotesque caricatures tho
virtues, vices, follies and passions of
mankind, and then label them faithful portraits of tho average human
being, that novel reading is almost
certain to be harmful. Of course, a
novelist's villain must bo a worse

ORIGIN   OF  SLANG.
Uow Bouiu Popular Wowljj uutl I'ln-ium
Cumo Into Ilulu**:.
This inuy bo called in one senso the uro of
Blanj*1. But aftor all what is colicd slang is
frequently tlio giving of anew moaning to
oid words or tiio invention of now Words
from old roots. The slangof to-dny becomes
lho elegant lauguago of to-morrow. It is
interesting to noto how many of U-o commonest words and plirnsos which wero onco
regarded as slangy and inelegant became a
part of tho pollto languago of tiie times-
Words, liko lives, havo a biography, says a
writer In tho Pittsburgh Dispatch.
"Dun" Is a word now whoso meaning Is
kuovvn to every ono who understands tlio
English language. Too many wish they did
not know It. "Yet at tho beginning of tins
contury ft was unknown as a verb. About
that time a constablo in England named
John Dun becamo celebrated as a il rat-class
collector of bad accounts. When others
would full to collect a bad debt Dun would bo
suro to got tt out of tho debtor. Ho well-
known did this becomo that peoplo from tho
surrounding country sent hiin their accounts
when they could not collect thorn. It booh
passed into acurreut phraso that whon a
porson owed money anil did not pay when
Halted lio would havo to bo "Dunned."
lleiiL'o It soon becamo common ln such cases
to say: "You will have to Dim so-and-so if
you wish to collect your money."
Until ttio nomination or Franklin Pierce
for tho Presidency tho word "outsider" was
unknown. Tlio comralttoo on credentials
aim* in to mako Its report and could not
get into tho hall becuuso of tho crowd ot
people who wero. not members of tho convention. The chairman ot the couvention
asked if the committeo was ready lo report
and llio chairman ot lho committeo answered: "Yes, Mr. Chairman; but tho
committoe ia unablo to got Insldo on account of tlio crowd and pressure of theso
outsiders." Thb newspaper reporters, over
ready to upproclato a good word or phrase,
took up tho word and used It. Since thon
il hus boon a common word and wo could
not do without it. "Hoom," in its now
acnso of meaning a popular clamor for a
man, or for any question or movement, Is a
recent word—being first UBcd us such in
1880. Grant was beiug run fora third term.
This brought out u bittor opposition. One
paper said the movement was like a boom
across a swollen stream, taking ln aU that
was worth having. This gavo a, now moaning to tho word. Sinco then it has been in
common uso as such.
"You aro a dalBy" is considered vory
slangy by thoso who uso it indiscriminately;
and, oftentimes, it is. But if used in tho
sense lu which lis inventor, it I may so
speak of a word, Charles Dickons, intouded
it, it is n good and forcible word. In "David
Copporilcld" It Is flrst usod In lho sense of
culling a person a daisy in a way to express
admiration, and, at tho samo time, to laugh
at one's credulity. Stcorforth says to young
(Joppei'fieldi "David, my daisy, you aro so
innocent of tho world. Let mo call you my
daisy, ns lt is so refreshing to find one ln
these corrupt days so innocent and unsophisticated. My dear Copper!ield,tbo daisies
of tlio field aro not fresher limn you."
Hence, when convoying tho idea that a person iB artless and innocent amid a skeptical
arid scheming condition of society, to say:
'■You aro a daisy" is not slang. It is forcible and elegant. Tho same pnssago gavo us
the other word, moaning tho samo thing,
though sounding a little harsher, "frosh."
We often hour tlio expression, "You're too
fresh." This, too, was originally meant by
Dickens to mean an Innocent ignorance of
the wayso'ttho world, ltvvas so usod by
yteorXorth in reference to David Copper-
field.   Bnt when usod to mean that a per*
. is iiiipii'teiiL or torvvara, us is too fro*
qubutly tho caso now, it becomes slang, as
such u inclining is ln reality senseless.
"Too thin" is a two*worded phraso heard
iu all classes of society. By some It Is used
in u vulgar sense, and is objectionable slang ■
by others It Is used iu the manner which
gavo It to us aa a good word. To say, when
speaking of an action, "O, that is too thin,"
is vulgar slang, bccauBO an action can not
bo thin. But to say, whon a person makes
a statement which is calculated to mislead,
"O, lhat Is too thin," is not slung. It was
iven   currency by Hon. Alexander H.
Itophcns, of Georgia, in tho United States
Congress iu 1870. Somo member had mndo
a reply to Mr. Stephens, and tho latter had
his chair wheeled out In tho aislo nnd said
lu that shrill, piping voico which always
commanded silence: "Mr. Speaker, the
gentleman's arguments aro gratuitous assertions mado up of wholo cloth. And cloth,
sir, so gauzy and thin that it will not hold
water. It is entirely too thin, sir."
"Brother Jonathan," us a namo for the
United Slates, Is much older than this, aud
was given by Washington himsolf, though
that individual had no idea of making a
slang phraso for a name to his country at
the time. Jonathan Trumbull, Governor of
Connecticut, furnished tho struggling
colonial tinny with funds and supplies on
many un occasion. Ono time tho army was
iu soro distress, nud n consultation was
held. In lho midst of it Bomeono wondered
what would bo dono. Washington answered: "Well, vvo'll havo to put it off till
wc can seo Brother Jonathan," ub Governor
Trumbull waa called; "ho will help ub out,
I. guess," Aud bc did, and gave his name
to tlio country hia zeal and patriotism
helped to save.
Thus it is that words aro mado and
phrases tako 011 a new meaning. In this
manuer tho language progresses by accretion, as it woro. Such words ns tako now
meanings from a custom aro usually from
the common people; that is, from thoso who
ure not scholarly. It ts in this way that old
words drop out or tako new meanings aud
lose lliolr old ones and now words lake thoir
place. At first most of them aro slang.
One of tho best words wc havo is "agnos*
iicisiu," yet ils inventor—Prof. John Tyn-
dnlL, tlio groat scientist—says tbat when ho
used it he had no Idea It would be used
agalhi or that bu would bo understood in
using it. He could lind no other, he says, to
convey An idea'of his religious belief in an*
•;-.yit to some churchman that ho tell what
lid did believe. Heuco Iioiuvcntcd "Agnos*
liclsm," meaning "tho unknowable." It Is
only about fifteen yoars old.

LEANDER AND SOPHIA:
Tho Story ""of a Will and a Pet
Parrot.
l.cnndcr married Sophia Merrick, Donoon
M wrick's oldest daughter; a rich old aunt,'
after whom Sophia had boon named, died
and loft {20,000 to Sophia, so, as you will
ngroo, Sophia wna oa eligible & young woman as evcL' started in upon a patchwork
nullt.
Somo folks said—notably Hcpsivol Green,
who woro a poe-wco hat simply because Bho
know that tho peo-woo was Leander's
.'.i voi-ito bird—some folks said that Sophia
wna high-strung, moaning thereby that
8o[iliIa was neither so meek as Moses nor
so patient as tho good old patriarch who
needed cutlcura. But when Leandorsaw
.Sophia's pretty faco, or heard horston-
torian contralto voice lifted up in tho ohoir,
or when (perchance) tho imaginative facilities of liis mind grappled and dallied with
tlio pleasing circumstance that Sophia had
180,000'in hor own right—then, ah, Oien
Loander allowed, not secrotly but openly
and boldly* that Sophia was the likeliest
girl in the township, and outsido of tho
township Leander's acquaintance extended
not, ■" i ■-'-
In spite, therefore, of the malicious libels
of tho'othcr women folks Lcander kept paying attention to Sophia, and this sort of
thing culminated, only and naturally, in a
weililing, at whicli the bride's mother wopt
copiously and the bride's father became
scandalously hilarious ovor a dipporful of
hard cider. Tbe day beforo tbe wedding
Leniulcr made a modest effort to lind out
what portion of iter §20,000 Sophia meant to
illicit 11 him as a dower, but at tho mere
suggestion Sophia went into hysterics and
hnd to lio cupped by the doctor beforo sho
was bought out all right. So Lonndor
made up his mind to bide his thne, Lovo Is
a famous blotter-*!'pationceand fortitude,
It tqolt Loander just about six months to
Hnd cut that wlmt folks had said about
Sophia's} temper wns not a libel; Hepsivul
Green had told tho truth. Sophia .was a
shrew. Tho most mortifying phase of tho
situation- howover, was that Sophia hung
on Lo her $2U,O00—ye., .he guarded aud
rluiig to that §20,000 as only an argus-oyed,
briii roiin-handed woman can guard and
cling. Leaudor had to work for his living,
and that, us somo of us are painfully aware,
invon-es an embarrassing lot of sweat and
'.vi-.ii-iiiess. Still Lennder did not repine; it
•sis. med as If that f20,000 danced like an
Ignia-fdtuUB continually beforo his eyes,
lilling his bosom with hope, If not confidence. "All things como to him who
ivuits,'' said Loander—fool optimist that ho
was!
They had been married about six years
wl oa thoy moved to Worcester. Sophia
had tired of country lifo; sho pined for the
m-iso, the bustlo and tho excitement of tho
oity j so they moved to Worcester, whore
thero aro six trains a day each way. Thoy
lind no ehildron, but Sophia, having drawn
a dividend on hor Fltchburg; stock ono
Bprlng,* bought a parrot'."for aovon dollars,
■.:■-■.' -ibout this callow bird of song did tho
-i'- ,.ils of her heart gradually entwine
'Is'iiisclvcB. It was ft gaudy but solemn
tm 1, wus tho parrot. For hours would it
nit In tho gilt ring In Its capacious zinc cage,
■At ring dully into space and uttering no
sound whutsoovor. SophiacalloditDinkoty
■-burely a most frivolous namo for so circumspect n bird I
Loander imd no uso for parrots. As already intimated (advisedly and without
prejudice), Leander's favorito bird was tlio
in--woo, tliu tiny songster which, cither
enroling in Its native bush or crowning tho
head of a buxom rural maiden, is alike n joy
antl u thing of boauty. Loander saw nothin ■; to admire in tho vulgar-hued, watch-
eyed and taciturn parrot. It annoyed him
to behold that gloomy cronturo staring vacantly into spaco—it annoyed and hypno-
Lizodhim. (,I shall wring its nock somo*
lime," said ho, but ho never passed any
n h remark In tho hearing of his wife. Hu
lopeotcd Sophia's feelings. Thoro is, nc-
corapanylng the feelings of a wife who is
Worth $120,000, a certain sanctity so woll do-
ilucdnnd so sacred thut no discreotbus-
iiimd will violate H.
Thoy had boon married going on eight
\-c irs, when Sophia up and died. Leaudor
buried her and marked her gravo with a
simple marble slab bearing the ..mbiguous
iogondi "At Rost."
.It u*nnspirod that Sophia had left a v. !U,
It was rather of a nurpritio to tcaudej*,'
"'...wyorBcoboftlcd it aud proved it up in
tho Probate Court lt was a simplo doou*

Tho New York papors sont special cor-

Monhwliil. Loander plotted against lho
lifo ".' the bird. Naturally enough, he
■ -:i'l under tho coudltiouB prescribed by
;:--.ilia's wilt. Why Bhould ho, a human
being, suffor his poaco and dignity to ho
itiH-oi-iled by a vulgar, unthinking bird)
Thu inurdorous passion waxed and grow in
... luuler'sboBom until presently it became
[inraraoUnt and nil-absorbing. "Pstttacus
'<■/, it-iiw «('*—this was, ln fact, tho senti-
inont which Loander borrowed from the
■indentRomans. But how waa this right*
coils end to bo achlevedl
Hepha's will was explicit. It specified in
words as clear as sunlight that In caso the
parrot died "a natural doath" the monoy
i hOuld bo Loandor's; "but," tho noxt clauso
went on to say, "in caso tho parrot dies
othor than from natural causes all my
ii."iis.va and effects shall straightway bo
coiiiiignod to tho city of Worcester to have
and le hold tho Bamo forever." That was
just ko a woman, and particularly like
Boplila.
Tho emergency soomod to call for the
practice of extraordinary finesse, so Le-
andor Importuned tho advico of a trusted
. lend, Mr. Babbitt, a barber. Mr. Babbitt
had worked ia Now York. Having shaved
h i iiuen in tho Aster Houso, ho was prop-
■■ i*Iy regarded as a versatile and ripo scholar
in Hie occult BclonooB, Mr. Babbitt told
I■ :r.idor tbat parrots would oat moat, ond
t!■.!. meat foil to pnrrots regularly would
ii iy imluco opilopsy, from whicli malady
i ■■ victim would ultimately aud surely dlo.
-' " ■ was good nows, groat howb. Lonndor
1 :)u to dolo out meat ln propostorous
o, imUtios to the parrot, Dinkoty, Thopar-
j*»1 lellsliod tho chango of diot and was
btippy.  Lonndor wns happy, too.
Lawyer Boobo was, as wo havo said, tho
parrot's guardian. Ho camo- around one
day to visit IiIb ward and found tho pnm-
bbred bird devouring a highly Bplcccl carry
ufveal. Suspecting foul play, tlio vigllisn;
attorney laid the matter before the probata
court, -md, after taking a vast aiiioui.i. ist'
export testimony, tho court reprimanded
Lcaiider and ordered tho parrot's diet
obangetibaok again to Bodn crackers and
outUeilsh. This Boomed to discourage tho
parrot a good deal; hut think of what Lb-
andor'o feelings must havo boon.
Tho parrot went back to farinaceoun
food; after that tho only freah meat it, got
was nu occasional morceau nipped r-toaUh
ily and unostentatiously out oi Leander's;
unwary thumb or exposed wrist.
About this timo another embarrassing
amplication arose. Tho porrot had boon
young, hut now it began to mature, and all
nt once its palate and vocal chords developed functions of nn extraordinary oharactor. Tho parrot began to croak soinc-
rt'lmt, and then it began to mutter incoherently, nnd finally It began to articulato
snd to phraae.
Ono morning Leaudor was awakened by
a voico calling: "Leandorl Loander I" Ho
sprang out of bed terrified, shivering.
'Merciful heavens I" ho groaned. "It is
my wife-she has como hack from tho
gravo I"
Thou tho voico called again—and it was
unmistakably Sophia's voico; "Lennder,
git up 1 Loander, git a movo on ye 1"
It was not Sophia, howovor—Sophia was
dead and buried: nor was it Sophia's ghost.
It was Dinkoty, tho parrot. You seo, tho
bird had not talked boforo, because it wan
too young to talk. As soon as It got old
inottgh to talk it spoko tho words meat familiar to it—words it had hoard Sophia ding
at and into Loander day after day, week
aftor week, month after month. This wob
natural enough. Thoro iB nothing new
under tho sun. Dinkoty did simply what
wo aro all doing.
Tho task of picturing Loandor's misery
woro vain for ua to undertake. Inadcquuto
to that tusk, wo shall simply say that
Loander suffored—suffered for days, for
weeks, for months, yot Buffered in silence,
for tho austere horrors of the probate
court had terrorized him. FerbnpB-ali,
who shall say—perhaps ho was somewhat
buoyed up by the dim ond twinkling hopo
that BOina timo (false word 1) his reward
would be harvested In tho death—tho natural but nono tho leas righteous doath—of
this wretched bird. At any rato, Lennder
boro his martyrdom mutely.
It must ho," said Lawyer Bocbo,ovor
and anon; "it must bo a sweet consolation
to yon to havo this perpetual reminder of
your sainted wife—to hear continually tho
echo of deceased's voico and to feel that,
ough sho livos only in tho spirit, tho
dcaring epithets with which Sophia's
meloiliouo contraltol caressed your ears aro
still preserved by thia inspired bird.
Lcandor, you nro tho blessed beneilciary of
it special providence."
Loander never made any audible answer
to congratulations of thia character. "But
his face spoko volumes, nnd oven then tlio
sentiments that aurged In hia bosom were
not half spoken. Meanwhile, Dinkoty, tho
parrot, resurrected and revived Bophln in
overy particular except that of the llosli.
A demoniac activity had now succeeded to
that Boml-oomatoso condition wliich characterized tho earlier years of tho miserable
bird. Sometimes it thrust ita cerulean head
out between tho bars of ita zlno dago and
shrieked! ''You think you're going to get
my money, uh! Lcauder, Lennder, I'll fool
you yet!" At other times, standing upon
its adamantine beak ond rasping tho air
with ita horny claws, the grotesque creature cried: "Never marry for monoy,
Loander—-never marry for money I" Then
again—but why enumerate tho thousand
preposterous tortures which tho hearties;)
reptile inflicted upon Loander! Hour aftor
hour, day nfter day, week after week,
Dinkoty, tho parrot, porformed its acrobatic monstrosities and shrieked shrilly tlie
old-time objurgations nnd roprouchos
which Sophia had used so Industriously.
;I will beat* it patiently," said Leaudor lo
himself. "My timo will come; thopaiTol
will dio a natural death and then the 520,000
shull bo mine. I shall bo happy ti*iop—rich
and happy—and I shall liavo a parrot for
dinner every day 1"
But ono morning whilo Loander was read
ing a nowspupor ho turned pule and
trembled violently. His oyes caught nn
article hoi.'led "Facts About Parrots." Tho
nrticlo started out in this wiso: "At n ro*
jont meeting of tbo French Academy Prof.
Achllle Saviii-Brlllattmado tho interesting
statement that ornithologists woro now
agrcedtlmt tho lifo of tho average parrot
oxcoeded one liundrcd yoars."
Lcunder gasped; just then ho heard a
voice—his Sophia's voice—rasp out in file-
like tones of exultation: '■Never marry
for money, Leander—nover marry for
money I"
Leaudor gavo it up then and thoro. He
gathered himself togothor, proceeded to u
cheap lodging-houso, rented a room, turned
on tho gns, wont to bed, and died miserably
of a brokon heart. By chance na ho departed from hia own houao ho loft tlio front
door open aud a, vagrant cat, wild with
hunger, outorcd and after .a threo houie'
battlo vanquished Dinkoty, tbo parrot, nlid
nto It. So, aftor all, Dinkety died the death
natural to parrots, by wliich wo mean u
violent death, which, wo aver, thutthl lm
natural to parrots oven though ornithologists
and probata courts hold otherwise.
Tho minister who preached Loandor's
funeral sermon waa very cloquont, forth;)
estato paid handsomely for it. "Ninthly,'1
Baid tho minister, "wo draw thla lesson
Trom tho lifo of tho deceased:   Never to—"
But why quoto tho minister, sinco you

Bryan O'Lynn had no boots for to wear,
So he came lo Westminster to buy him a pair.
" I'll have one pair .of thick ones and one pair of thin,
If 1 can find J. 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 wc praise mostly, without seams at the side.
Wc have Boots of all kinds, from Quebec and Beilin;
" Sure you have boots for the million," says Bryan O'Lynn,
He bought him his boots, which of course were no trash,
1 le 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.

envious Discovery In a log.
A relic of tho Spanish conquest of
the Pacific coast waa brought to light
a few days ago nt tho Brunette Mills
Whilo a spruco log, somo 4.V feet in
diameter, waa boing sawn into boards.
Tho relic is in the shape of a culverin
ball, made uf eaat iron, and is 1:{ inches
in diameter. Tho saw struck the ball
and cut into tho metal about a fourth
of an inch when it was torn from its
resting plnco and hurled across the
mill, striking a miui named Stroplo
a scvero blow on the arm. The Enw
was immediately stopped and au investigation of tho curious discovery
made. It was found that tho ball was
firmly embedded in tho wood, about 8
inches from the surface, and thoro wna
no trace or mark of how it got thero.
The loy enmo from oithor tho head of
Falso Crock or tho Squamish. river nt
the head of Howe Sound, in both of
which localities relics of tho Spaniards'
visit havo beeu frequently diacovcred.
From the position of tho ball it ia
thought it must havo boen embedded
in the tree fur at lenst n hundred
yeara, and it probably found ita "billet' during one of tho numerous battles between the Spaniards and tho
Indians. Tho relic ia in the possession
of Mr. J. B. Kennedy, of tho Bru-
netto Saw Milla Co., who will be
pleased to ahow it to anyone interested
in antiquarian researches.
UriifiKcd und Uobbctl.
O. P. Bylnuder, of Lulu Island,
called at Tun Columiiian oflico to-day
and told a tale of woo concerning his
visit tu town that is deserving of tho
publicity ho wished to givo it. He arrived iu tho city yestorday with a ton
of potatoes, whicli he managed to dispose of at a fair price. Pocketing the
money ho started out to cell on n few
friends, and succeeded in getting pretty thoroughly intoxicated. In somo
saloon, which he cannot remember, ho
claims that tho liquor given him was
drugged, and while he was lying down,
sleeping off the effects of the dose, he
waa robbed of all his money by a per*
eon who also searched tho pockets of
several other drunk mon lying in tho
same room. A man who passed himself off aa a police constable, forcod
Bylnuder to stand treat several times
in order to save himself from a viait to
the lockup. This constable (?) ia des*
deacribod aa a big, rcdwhiakered Irishman, who does not tally with nny ou
tbe city force, and must bo a Belt-appointed special. After lying in the
room for some hours, ono of the employees of the establishment sprinkled
Bylnndor's fnco with a liberal supply
of water and then swept it carefully,
but thoroughly, with u broom. H-o
wna thun led out and turned loose on
the town. Tlie authorities should
look nfter tho red-whiBkured constablo
and givo him a government berth without salary,
A I'uotl liur-ii! In llatl Hands.
A verdant Vancouvorite, having
a.mio Important businesa with tho government agont, drovo over from tho
terminal city yesterday in hot haste,
much more ao than the exigency of tho
caso called for. On arriving nt tho
government otlicea his horso waa reeking with sweat, nnd tho verdant
alniuger thinking a water draught
would aasist tho animal to cool down
moro rapidly, unfnstoned tho check
reiu and allowed it lo drink from the
handsome fountain that plays beforo
the departmental building. The horse
drank doeply of tho cooling stream,
aud waa urgod to still bettor efforts by
tho Vancouverito, who patted ita neck
and told it to "Drink, beauty, drink."
Tho effects of tho long draught was
making itself visible on tho fountain
trough, nud the clerks of tho department wero about to order a cessation
of hostilities, when tho horso suddenly dropped its noso between iti forefeet, humped its back into n surprising
peak, druw ita legs together, remained
motionless for an instant nnd then fell
to tho ground in a heap, to all appear*
mice stone dead. Groat was tho grief
of thu Vancouvorite, and rich waa the
sarcasm heaped ou hi« unfortunate
hoad by tho gathering crowd. "Water
a horso an warm ns that ono and leavo
it standing? Well you muat bo n precious greenhorn." "Drat the man, ho
ought to be drowned in tho samo
trough that kiliod tho horse." '-Never
truat a vnluablo horso with a born
foul, nno or tho other is suro to como
to grief, generally tho more vnluablo
animal." Such woro a fow of tho soothing sentences thut cheered the visitor
in hia loss. A well known medical
gcntlenuut happened to pass hy and
his attention wna directed to the animal whoro it lay. "Got it on its feot,"
snid tho doctor, "roll it about, do nny*
thing to keep its blood in circulation,
and ihu horso can be Bavnd" The advico of tho doctor-was followed, and
in-half an hour tho Vancouverito had
tli a felioity of seeing the animal on ita
pins again. But tho long drink waa
too much for (he poor horse, and it
will finish tho rest of its oxiatenco
hopelessly foundered.

VicroniA, Oct. 16.—A real estate
sensation is developing in thia oity
which concerns tho title of some most
valuable proporty in the city. The
stury goes thus: Many years ago when
tho gold excitement was at fever
heat a man came to this country to
seek his fortune. Instead of rushing
up to the gold fields he located in Victoria, buying at various intervals considerable real estato. This property
at tho time was worth but a small
amount, bub the value now is enormous. The pioneer married an Indian woman. Ho died many years
ago, leaving an infant daughter. Boforo Iub death ho had a will exocutod
leaving all his proporty to his daughter.
The will was witnessed by a prominent citizen nnd wns stowed away in
an old safe. The infant daughter has
grown up to womanhood and married,
all unaware of tho largo amount
of property alio owned. Somo days
ago the friend of tho doad man began
thinking over his old friend's affairs
and th.iught ho should have owned
some real estato at his death. He
wont to a smart and rising young lawyer in tho city and stated the case
to him. Tho lawyer started hunt
ing records and to his surprise
discovered that a large quantity
belonged to tho woman. The
caso wdl b: fully investigated nnd
brought tj trial. The young lawyor is
to receivo a large foo if successful.
What complicates matters is thnt iu
tho meantime tho properly has been
sold aud loused and in other ways disposed of hy a powerful corporation.
Theso fuels uro confided to a vory few
persons ct present, but a tremendous
sensation will be caused shortly when
llie ci.se comes to trial.
