The delegates of the International
American conference, were yesterdsy

speeches. Mr, Wiman said that oom*
mercial union on the North American
continent as between Canada and the
States was within the possibilities of
thu next five or ton year.*, and that
purely by concurrent legislation nt Ot*
tawa and Washington. It might tike
longer to create n customs union so aa
to include all the nations represented
by the delegates, but the movement
on tho north would gradually stimulate the movement toward the south
by showing its practicability and enormous advantages.

EDMUND  YATES* CABLE,
London, Oct. 15. — The repoits
about the Prince of Wales' health are
wildly exaggerated. To say he is in
rugged health would uut bo accurate,
but he is, for all practical purposes,
perfectly strong and able to do nearly
as much u he used to do ten years
ago. Hii lea is mueh better, and he
can walk and ride a little, ind he is
now much more careful as to his diet
and smoking than formerly. There ii
really no cause for the alarmist rumors
which aro flying about
THE CHANNEL SQOAOBON.
The channel squadron hu had a
royal time it Copenhagen, where tbe
people fairly overwhelmed the officers
with their hospit-.lity. On Thursday
all the admirals and oflicers in com*
mand of the ships were ordered to
Fredensburg to dine with tbe king.
Sjme little amusement was caused by
the Prinoe of Wales bringing Prince
Gecrge before Admiral Baird as a deserter from the Ojborne. The royal*
tics who went to lunch with Admiral
Baird before inspecting the ship,
seemed to enjoy themselves immensely.
The Arrow and Northumberland were
the only ships honored, and more
amusement was given to the visitors by
the officers in their cabins and in photographing them in groups, than in
seeing the marvels in tbe ships themselves. The Czar seemed much struck
by the capability of tho Arrow, and
worked ber ingenious hydraulic ma*

and I had onr stallions at the Delta ex*

went on with my horse (or colt) to the
Westminster exhibition, and got fint ou

got second. Then a new set of judges,
iu whtch Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Cameron
were included, gave Mr. Simpson sweepstakes. Thoso judges did not let us
bIiow the action of our hones (the judges
of dmught stallions did). Woll, I know
J. C. C. too well to think he would work

that a fitting recognition of New Westminister's laudable enterprise would be
the inauguration of a district agricultural and art association, which should
hold an annual exhibition in the Queen's
park; but which should in no senso intrench upon tbe rights or prerogatives of
the provincial, but which, on the contrary, should work iu union wirh it, and
thus perpetuate tbe mutual respect whieh
should characterize each section of the province, Had the gentlemen who assumed
to be the exponents of public opinion at
our annual meeting, displayed but a
modicum of courtesy and moderation, we
might, in addition to the provincial, iu
Viotoria, have had a district show iu the
Queen's park, New Westminster, which
might havo as far excelled our late show,
as did that any of its predecessors.
That New Westminster should have
lashed herself iuto such an inexcusable
ttate of phrensy was a painful mortification to her truest friends, but, perhaps,

"Thi! courat; of true lovo nover did
rim smooth," has got to bo a saw
with popular lictiou makers.   This
trite saying, according to almost universal experience, merely states   a
pervading truth with rospact to all
great emprises in tho domain of tho
heart, the intellect, or of tliu physical forces.    It is only through "great
tribulation," us u rule, tlmt anything
really worth having or accomplishing is uttamed in either the moral
or material sphcro.   The Westminster Southern Railway', whicli has
just passed through another of its
numerous crises, furnishes another
exemplification of this oft demonstrated  truth.   From the days of
"disallowance," when tho Dominion
authorities held their ban over the
enterprise, until   the  passing last
night, for the second time in a little
over  a year, by an overwhelming
majority, of  the $150,000 railway
bonus   by-law, tlie   history of  the
Westminster Southern has been very
far  from   being    a   smooth   one.
On the contrary, it has boen a record
of obstacles and difficulties persistently and nobly overcome, only to
be   met   by   new   lions    in   tho
path,  fresh   disappointments   and
feara,   further   bars   to   progress.
Through it al), through good report
und ill report, the great majority of
the Royal citizens have, on every
public opportunity, shown their unswerving  loyalty to the enterprise
itself—their unalterable determination to have  tho   railway, and to
tako no backward steps that might
delay its attainment to some vague
und indefinite period in the future.
They were even prepared, as thoy
did, to pledge their individual credit
rather I ban that  the undertaking
should receivo a serious set-back or
total defeat.    During all this time
strong  forces   have   been  arrayed
against the enterprise from without,
and, under all tlio ci re um stances, it
can hardly be wondered that somo
opposition has been developed and
manifested among our own household.   Most of this opposition has
been honest, if of doubtful shrewdness and propriety; but the  most
dtterrained opponent nnd  the worst
enemy of tbe Westminster Southern
must be convinced, after the final
verdict of yesterday, that the people
of the royal city know theirown minds
in   this   railway matter,  and thnt
knowing this, they are not lightly to
ha turned  aside.     Tbe   unmistakable action of the ratepayers yesterday lias brought nearer by a great
strida that grand consummation, and
crowning of all the efforts and struggle'* of years, so earnestly desired
by   every   loyal   citizen,   whether
he mny have been a persistent supporter or an honest opponent of the
one   connected   Southern  Railway
Rclu-me   as   it has been before tbo
public.   	
An esteemed subscriber and occasional correspondent, Mr. John Kirkland, of Hazel Grove, Delta, has a
commi'nication in another column,
in wliich he makes some strictures,
moro or less severe, upon Westmin*
stor and her citizens anent the nction
of tin: late annual meeting of the
provincial   agricultural  association
in   this   city.    Our   correspondent
thinks that iho royal city just covered herself with glory by the excellence of the exhibition and celebration,' and tho perfection of all the
arrangements,   rocontly   held,   and
then  "put   her  foot   in it," so lo
speak, by the action of tho annual
meeting.    Further, our correspondent argues that the provincial exhibition aa a peregrinating institution
ehouid  bave  been preserved intact,
and  thit   nn Annual district show
might  have benn arranged for to bo
held   at   the- Queen's park in this
city.   While there may be difference
of opii ion ns to iho creditablenoss
of some of the incidents of the meeting ia question, and as lo the particular manner of disposing of the
main business l-t-fon* it, wo cannot
agree with nur  correspondent that
tbo provincial exhibition should, or
oven  could, have beon perpetuated
as it originated and hnd been so far
sustained.    As an itinerating show,
one year upon  llie island and another upon ihe mainland, every close
observer and reader of the signs of
the times iniiat have seen a year or
two ago, at  least, that the days of
the   "provincial"  were  numbered.
Those who were present at the last
annual meeting at Victoria will remember that the question of dissolving   the "provincial" and   holding
thereafter separutu islalnd and mainland exhibitions was seriously, if in
formally,   mooted,   and   ,was just
shelved for the time, principally because the people of tho capital did
not take, sufficient interest in the
matter to get up an island show this
year, although it was freely intimated last fall that thoy would probably
do so.   Although sudden, it was not
unexpected, might with truth be applied to the coup-tie. grace which tho
peregrinating "provincial" recoived
at the bands of its friends in this
eity nr. the late and rapidly becom
ing famous annual meeting.   Anyone  giving the subject a few moments' unprejudiced thought will be
convinced that the finishing stroke
did not como a moment too soon in
the best interests of the two principal sections of tiie province with
respect to tho larger exhibitions. It
was bad euough to alternate betweon
two cities, Victoria and Westminster, as hnd been dono for the last
eight or ten years ■ but when Vancouver and Nanaimo, to say nothing
of Kamloops looming up on the
horizon, were presenting their claims
to havo (heir turn at the "provincial"
—and who could deny them under
the old "carpet-bag" arrangements?
—it became necessary, unless; the
very name of exhibition in the provinco were to becomo synonymous
with farce, to put forth a strong,
albeit, as some would have it, a
somewhat rude hand, and save the
cherished institution from being
worried to deatli by its numerous
and disinterested friends (1) j for a
show dragged about to four or Jive
different placos in as many years—
situated ns those places aro in this
provinco—would inevitably lead but
a sickly and declining existence.
No ono of tho places, it is obvious,
could nHord to maintain tho proper
buildings and grounds necussary to
a successful antl creditable provincial exhibition, and have thoso
buildings and grounds used for their
intended purposo only once in four
or fivo years. Neither could tho
necessary degree of local interest be
stimulated—upon which depends so
largely the success of an exhibition
—towards a show recurring only
every fourth or fifth year. And, as
no place that might be mentioned
in the province ean comparo with
Westminster in advantages as a sito
for a great central exhibition, it
would follow, this city having its
turn with the other cities of the
province, that only onco in four or
five years would the provincial show
bo relieved from the serious handicap and incubus of being held in au
unsuitable place. We again affirm,
as wo have stated before, that, in so
far as the end attained, the people
of Westminster are entitled to praise
instead of censuro for having boldly
given the finishing stroke to an obsolete and moribund condition of
things with respect to tho "provincial" that threatened to slowly and
surely strangle its usefulness. Certainly the farmers in any section of
tho provinco should bo the last to
complain at the new order of things
which tho royal city's farsightedness
and patriotism have inaugurated.
Tho boon to both mainland and
island farmers is considerable. Instead of having, so far ns the vast
majority are concerned, no central
exhibition every other year, the farmers, and tho manufacturers as well,
of both natural divisions of the province will hereafter havo a ahow—
better than any so-called provincial
show, with the exception, perhaps,
of the last, that has ever been held
in the province—each year, right at
their doors, thus giving both largo
and small exhibitors in all departments an opportunity to make a
display every yoar without being
seriously out of pocket in travelling
expenses. But even bettojr things
than we have hinted at are in storo
for those who tako an interest in
and nre benefitted by exhibitions.
With a new born ardor infused into
them hy the glorious example of the
royal city, each of the three other
principal cities of the province nre
contemplating holding grand annual
shows of their own, provincial in
their scope and ambitions. The
prospect is certainly alluring—four
provincial exhibitions every year
instead of one? We see no reason
why tbe dates of auy of the four
should conflict. The healthy rivalry
induced will make tbo entire quar-
totte famous shows in overy respect.
Each will vie with the other in the
extent und liberality of their prize
lists—a veritable "snap" for exhibitors of all sorts. The smaller exhibitors will have a splendid show
right at their own doors every year,
and the larger ones and all who have
Al exhibits can "take in" the whole
row. The resulting stimulation to
tho agricultural and manufacturing
industries of the province will be
most gratifying. Whilo each of the
four shows will, doubtless, bo provincial in aim, the inexorable law of
the "survival of tho fittest" will determine which shall bo provincial in
reality. This is as it should be,
and to tiio royal cily belongs tho
credit of placing the "provincial"
exhibition question on its proper
basis.
Photographs m Natural COLORS.—In his lato address to the
British Association forthe Advancement of Science, Oapt. W. de W.
Abney answered an oft-repeated
question by stating that photography
in natural colors not only has been
discovered, but pictures in natural
colors have been produced. Roughly speaking, the method of produc-
intr the spectrum in its natural
colors h to cblorinize a silvor plate,
expose it to white light till it assumes a violet color, heat till it becomes rather ruddy, and expose it
to a bright spectrum. The spectrum colors are then impressed in
their natural tints. Experiment
has shown that these colors are duo
to an oxidized product being formed
at the red end of the spectrum and
a reduced product at the violet end.
Photography in natural colors, however, is only interesting from a scientific point of view, and is not iikely
to become artistically satisfactory,
or of commercial value.

THAT MOTHEMN-LAW.i
%     "     "^
How She Game to Be 'Appreciated at Her True Worth. '^
Ono thing I'm resolved upon," said Kate
Rider to hor slater. "I'm ROing to bo mistress in my own house. I won't bo riddon
ovor by a dreadful mother-in-law." •**»*
'Stick to that, Kato, and you*U be happy,"
salclltose. - ■ ,'«\*-*™i
Roso had been married two years; Kate
two ivecUs. Rose's husband was a young
lawyer, who Uved lu a thriving town, and
had no relatives that he cared auy thing
about, or even seemed to desire to see
again. Henry Rider, Kato'a husband, was
a young physician, who had struggled Into
iractica in nn outrof-tbe-way village, whoro
w hud lived all hia life with an old-faah-
onod mothor, to whom ho was extremely
attached, and two plump, good-humored
sisters, who, If neither accomplished nor
stylish, wero the best girls in the world,
Kato was a boarding-school girl, with all
manner of accomplishments, and a natural
aptitude for tho latest fashions. Bhe had a
•Ittle Income of her own, and was considered it beauty by very many people; and
Henry Rider had yielded to her fascina-
ions, courted her a month, been engaged
two, and married at the ond of a three
months' acquaintance. He was vory muoh
in love.
As for Kate, it was her first offer; and
Henry was vory handsome. To be a doctor's wifo was well enough; though, had
the Inquired moro closely Iuto his Income,
iho might have hesitated about giving so
;idy a "yes." But sinco hor marriago sho
.mil heard so much about ''mother" and
,no uml Fanulo that, alarmed at the pros-
*uiofc which .seemed to spread itself before
ior, sho had put tho quostion plump:
'Shall you expect mo to llvo with your
peoplo?" And rocoived tho answer:
'I thought you ltnow we always lived together." »
\ou wero putting up at a hotel whon
not you," said Kato.  "I'm suro I nover
.bought of such a thing."
And immediately resolving that sho would
liter thoso domestic arrangements, Bhe
.oak counsel with her sister, and tho result
ub the declaration above recorded—"I Intend to ho mistress In my own house."
With thoso words on hor hps she sought
ior husband's prosenco.
''You soo, Henry," Bho sold, with a smile,
'young ladles nud old ladies don't liko tho
lame things. Our ways of managing would
io different, and wo'dquarrel; and it really
.i moro than you can expect that I should
'uanago for so many at first; and I won't
So uianaged f or—"
"But you don't want mo to turn my moth*
ir and sisters out of my house]" asked tho
ioctor,
"Of course not—only wo can llvo somewhere elso," said tho glrl-wifo.
"But wait until you've Been thom," said
lio Iiusband. "They aro tho best of poo-
ilo."
"Oh, no doubt 1 One's own relatives al*
vays are," said tho wifo. "But ono family
a enough for oue houso, and I shall stay
•villi slstcruntll I bavoa home of my own,"
with which words sho loft him, conscious
gf haviug shown tho "proper spirit" in timo.
Tho dootor sat with his head upon his
lauds for a long whilo. Ho had foreseen
■iotblng liko this, and was unprepared for
potion. Howevor, ho was still, very much
.n love, and he could notbut feel that many
.vives might have folt as Kato did, and that
u!-o might havo objectedtoaroady-mado
'family.
"Bettor, after all, to live amicably apart
.hau to dwell togothor in strife," ho said
mid utter ouo moro conversation with his
wife ho wroto to his mothor to engage board
himself and hia bride within a short
listancaof his own homo, adding only:
"Kate thinks sho would like boarding bost.
To this shortly camo an answer; .
"Vou havo kept the truth from me, in kind-
loss," Bald tho old lady. "I know how it la.
four wife objects to a mother-in-law; but, my
on, your praotice would bo lnjurod by ro-
noval; your comfort destroyed by beginning
nun-tod life In a boardlng-houso. Tho girls and
nyablt will find a now home. I havo enough,
.hank Huavon, for all threo, and I am not.in
;ko least offended. Fannie and Jauo aro
/oungor than I, aud you must not blame tbem
f tlmy are different,"
Indeed, buxom Jane camo to the city that
rovy day, und In tho excess of her indignation iiciipodropVoachcson her brother, and
ipokoof his wifo as a "nasty stuck-up lit-
Jo wretch."
"Soo herl" cried Jane, with tho tears
treuiniug down hor round, dimpled oheoks,
'lin introduced to horl No; nolthorl nor
Amnio want to seo or moot or speak to
,lmt woman who haa turned our doar old

jsiUl; that vipor that has Bet her only son
(..•-inst hor. I should insult hor If sho como
mo this room. Bo don't bring her—nasty,
.v'-iio-facodboasti"
"Remember you arc speaking of my wife,
Tune," said tlio doctor. n
. -'And why need you have married suoh a
•lutiirol" cried Jane. "How we'vo worked
for you and dono for you, up lato aud down
arly, to mnko a homo for youl But It's
[Ikeitton-l ingratitude. I don't want to seo
bou iigiilii, Henry Rider. I hopol novor may
,1-0 you again as tong as I live," , ***'
"Do you mean that}" asked the man.
' "Ido/" Bobbed tho girl. "I'd rather have
iron you In your coffin than havo It come to
Ihls. So good-bye forever, as far as I ga "
i And away wtnt Jane to tell her mother
ind ulster that Henry's new wife had mado
klin harder-hearted than a stone, and to
vcop bitter tears over tho packing ot hor
' -w possessions and her departure from hor
'.'-inn!,'homo.
Tlm doctor said nothing, but ho was very
,'mve. Tho homo-coming of tho brido was
lot a gay ono. To bo Bure, old Mrs. Rldor
■iinio over to call on tho flrst afternoon, and
(allowed the young housekeeper a groat deal
»f politeness and kindness; but Kato did
uot, to use hor own expression, "tako to
lier." Theolcj lady was homely and coun-
rifled, and used tlio English language as
■urolossly ob do mostold country ladles; aud
-im wore a homo-mado brown alpaca, and a
p up with a border all round, tied undor tho
■'Mu. Kato rejoiced ovor her resolution as
alio bodo hor good-bye.
But tlio husband wont far on tho road
with his mothor, and was not ashamed to
I ihed a fow tears; and coming homo, ho
yylaliod uloud, unheard by any thing but tho
si<l cow who grazed In the lane, and who
scorned to turn hor head aud listen, that ho
Imd novor mot Kato BtophonB. For other
i-ii*l loss tender reasons ho wished It vory
oi ten during tho ensuing year. Tho good
family cooking was superseded by the luiir-
thti-j efforts of a series of poor cooks—the
undent "help" of the household having loft
tea
Yin
in indignation to follow tlio fortunes of hor
old mistress. For weeks together thorp
would bo no servant, and Kut-o openly declared that sho couldn't cook. Thon meals
of lea und broad and buttor wore out the
hard-worked doctor's patience, until, after
enoulcd visits to the city, a new servant
was found, und a new list of misdemeanors
was rehearsed for his benoilt every night
at supper timo ahd overy morning at the
brenktast table.
Ho was vory uncomfortablo but ho had
not ceased to lovo his wifo. Bho was only
olghteon years old, and much was not to bo
expected of her powers in tho housekeeping
line. Ho hardly wished to boo her lu working attire, wilh her hands reddened with
labor and a cooking apron on. Her dainty
helplessness had a charm in it. Her soft
hands and unruffled attire pleased him
mightily, and thoro woro moments wlion ho
wus vory happy.
But no man can remain so Ill-fed; and
tho daily discomfort, combined wilh tho
twinges of remorse which ho felt whenever
ho saw his mother's pationt faco or his Bisters1 indignant countenances, quite altered
his temper by sJow degrees.
Ho did not reproach his wife at any timo,
but lio sulked behind a newspapor, or spent
long cvoulugs out by himself, and now and
thon alluded to mother's pies and dumplings
ln a tono which wives understand vory
woll,
All this merely confirmed Kato in hor
dislike of her raothor-In-law aud slsters-in-
law; and whon tho first baby oamo shore*
rusod.wlth a littlo string of Bpltoful remarks about old-fashioned namos, to havo
it christened Margaret after its grandmother. Thon Henry refused to think of
'Rose," but yielded whon his wife cried
over It; and Kate's sister camo to tho
christening, though tho grandmother did
not, to the great scandal of all tho congregation. Kate's "airs" had wounded tho
old lady too far at last. She had resolved
novor to enter her son's door again, and
Kate rejoiced thereat.
Bo tho baby grew to bo two yoars old,
and another camo, and a nursemaid was
added to tho establishment, and tho troublo
with cooks went on, until one day, Kate,
led by an advertisement supposed to bo inserted in tho paper by an unexcoptionublo
servant, penetrated Into tho dirtiest Btreets
of Now York, and into a room where tho
dirtiest of all created children wns ill in
bed.
Poor craythorl" said the mothor.
"What alls him I don't know;" nud Kuto,
in tho sympathy of motherhood, patted tlio
child's hood and spoko to him kindly, aud
advised a warm bath, which the matt
took as an insult. Tho efficient servant,
howover, was engaged, and Kuto wont
homo to feel conscious in a few duys of boing vory unwell, and to break down ut lust,
nnd tnko to bed, whilo hor anxious husband
felt that nt last tho groatost trial of their
married livos had como upon them, for Kato
had taken tlio small-pox In ono of its vory
worst forms.
'ShallI send for your sister, my dour?"
askod ho, after breaking tho ucwb lo bis
wifo us teudoriy ns possiblo.
"To Rose!" Bald Kato. "Oh, no. Sho
wouldn't come, ond I couldn't expect it
Don't send for nny one. Lot mo die; 1 fjliull
bo pitted if I live, and aftor thut whut
wot* Id life bo worth?"
"I should lovo you ae well," said tho husband; "but I'll suvo your pretty skiu us
well na your lifo, if I can; but there's n trial
boforo you, and before uio, too.  1 wish—"
Ho paused, and did not say: "I \ylsh
mother was horo."
As for Rending for her, ho had no such
thought. Tlto servants had lied in dummy,
and a half-witted boy wbo was not afraid
of small-pox, Inasmuch ns he hud Imd it lrini-
" tho your boforo, was "miutling" tho
children in tho apartment farthest removed
from tho sick-room,
Thero wuu not a uurao in the placo who
would undertake such acaso, nnd lho neighbors would havo bolted their doors agulnst
him. What should he do? How contrive
forthe safety of his bubcsl Suddenly a
voico smote his ear:
"This is a timo of troublo, Henry. Let old
scores bo forgot. Jane is dressing; tho ehildron to go homo with Fannie, and will stity
herself to holp me. Don't Fret about nothing, my boy. Wo'll do tho boat tho Lord
allows us."
Hohry took her iu his arms.
"My good mother," ho said, "how can you
be so good to us]"
As for Kato, sho was fast fulling into that
condition when sho could apeak or think of
nothing.
But bravo old Mrs. Rider did, as she hud
promised, tho best tho Lord allowed, and
her best was vory good trad wholesome.
Juno nmdo all comfortable in tho lcttohou,
and Fannlo cared for hor brotlior's bubo i In
tlio uow homo In which she hud wept no
many bitter tears for her old ono. And ut
last Kato passed from undor tho shadow of
tho doath-angcl's wings, nud her faco took
a likeness to itsolf ngaln and reason returned.
Then who was tondor of hor as a now-born
babe, savo old Mra. Rider! And who fed
her with duiuly Wane mange and jolly but
dimpled Janel And who came to tell her
how tho children woro growing, and how
woll they woro, but Fannie? Until at lost,
paler nnd thinner, and with her soft hair
cut short on her neck, but with a skin ns
smooth ar-d fair ob ovor, Kato wont into her
husband's littlo oflico ono day, and finding
bim nlono, knolt down nt his feot.
"Hour Henry, forgive mol" sho said
"For what, love?" naked tho husband
"For robbing you of such ti mother and
sistors," Baid Kato. "I was a foollsbj weak-
minded girl; I did not understand; ihoy
havo beon angola to mo; they can novor bo
thanked enough for what they havo dono.
Oh, Henry, will tbey stay with ua]"
Tho end of it was that thoy did stay. Tlio
old lady could scarcely believo thut tho
pale, sweet young woman whom sho had
just sceu pasa through suoh Buffering was
the haughty croaturo who had repulsed hor
friendship und bnnished her from her son's
homo. June declared that nobody could remain angry with tho poor litllo soul; uml
Faiiiiio hud grown to lovo tho ehildron very
tenderly; so tho two families becamo one,
and more than tho lovo of mother and
duughlcr exists between Kato and Lho
woman whom sho onco styled "My dread ful
mother- lu-lnw."—N. Y. Lodger.

Hryan O'Lynn had no boots for to wear,
So he came to Wostminstcr to buy him a pair.
"I'll have one pair of thick ones and one pair of thin,
If I can find j. Rousseau's," says Hryan 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, "Bc 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.

Mr. Russell Smither, of this city,
lays claim to the S25 oflercd hy the
proprietors of tho .Rural New Yorker
for tho best hill of potatoes of that
name, grown from seed purchased
direct from t hem. The seed purchased by Mr. Smither was no larger
than a walnut, and after allowing it to
remain in a warm situation for a
couplo of weeks only three eyes wero
discovered ia it that promised to grow.
Tho seed war* planted iu a trench 5
feot long, 12 inches wide and fi inches
deep, well manured. The vines grew
well, and at length covered a space of
7x0 feet, aud some of the stems
were an inch iii diameter. The potatoes were dug yesterday with the following astonishing rc-nilis: Tho lull
contained 22 potatoes, all marketable
save 2; the 22 potatoes weighed 18
pounds; tho largest weighed 27_ ozs.,
aud the second largest 26 ozs; the six
largest weighed 8 lbs, 14 ons,, nnd the
nino largest 12i lbs. Mr. Smither
brought these potatoes to The Colum*
ni'.* oflice, where the figures wero
verified. They aro as fine looking
"murphies" as. anyono could wish to
see, being much of n size, clean nud
evenly shaped.
i.ar;;e Itial Estate Transfer™
One of the reaulh of the passage of
the railway bonus bylaw has been an
active movement in real est*.to, and
'ine of the largest real estato transactions over made in Westminster was
concluded to-day. The purchasers ar.
Vancouvoritos, who have beon conducting the;r nr-t-jotiations through
Messrs. Richards, Haywood & Mackintosh for some weeks, but would not
finally close until they wero certain
the bonus bylaw would be sustained.
The property purchased was that of
Mr. A. W. Lundbom, which comprises
5") feet frontage on Columbia stroet,
and 0i) foet on Front Street, and thu
buildings thereon. Tho value of this
tttiusf or is ubout $20,000, though the
esact figures havo uut been made public. By this deal the purchasers havo
secured oue of the best business sites
in the city.
Another larga deal in suburban property is also announced. A bloek of
14 aores has been sold to a Victoria
capitalist who pays for the same $250
pur acre, a considerable increase over
pricea of three months ngo. In all quarters of the city prices aro looking up,
and a genoral reaction in the real estate market is looked for. The fact
that foreign capitnl ia looking for investment in Westminster goes to show
that outsiders fully appreciate tho immense advantages tho railroad will confer on us.

Tlio concert and social at the Methodist ohuroh last night was a success iu
every way. Tho body of the church
waa filled, all but a fow back scats,
nnd the wings were packed. Rov. J.
[, White occupiud tho chair and performed tho functions pertaining to
lhat oflico in a manner worthy of admiration. Ho did not inflict long and
tiresome apeoches between each item
on thu programme, but miiil whut ho
had to say in a few crisp sentencea,
airiclly totho point. Tlio proceeding*
of tho evening opened with Ihu grand,
old doxoloqy, "Praise God from whom
all blessings flow," in which tho whole
aii'Uonco joined. Thon followed tha
"Lord's prayor" by Uov. E. Robson.
Tho concert programme wns carried
through in good stylo, Mra. D. Robson, Mrs. McCrady, Miss Major and
Messrs. DeBeck, Cunningham, Harris
and Middlobmok taking the chief parts,
Tho organ solos by Prof. Sharpe, of
"Victoria, were rendered in a manner
tbat elicited tho warmest praise. Tho
anthems by the choir, conducted liy
Mr, Pearson, wore excellent performances, and tho programmo on tho
whole was decidedlj well carried  out.
After tho singing of ihe national anthem, tho audience adjourned to tho
basement whore pumpkin pies of every
Bhape, mako, description and flavor
were served out by tho energetic ladies
who had prepared the entertainment.
Thia was the social pnrt of the programme and as auch it wna an unqualified success, There wns nothing in
the shape "f select enterics observed,
but a general intermingling of tho people. The wealthiest man in Westminster peacefully munohed his piece
of pre alongside of a hungry youth cf
eight summers, who had wandered
away from the fold uf hia own church
to patronize the Methodists while the
pumpkin pie season lasted. All
seemed intent ou ehjying themselves
and in making others comfortable and
happy, and their efforts in this direction woro attended with unqualified
success, After an hour socially spent
in this way the gathering broke up,
more than pleased with tlio pleasure
the evening had afforded them.
Died or Despair,
Even the wild and retiring grouse
was for onco drawn from ita favorito
haunts in tho heart of tho dense wild-
wood to learn the result of thu voting
on tho bonus by-law. Tho anxious
bird loft homo yesterday morning, and
on arriving in town took up a commanding position on one of iho lofty
treea on tho premisos of Oapt. Pittendrigh. The inarch of progress, the
shriek of the iron horse nnd the civilisation of tho wilds aro all set down as
deadly sins in the catechism of tha
grouse family, consequently this bird
was moro than anxious that tho by-law
should bo defeated. High perched ou
the stately poplar tho bird ant all the
afternoon and ovening inwardly digesting the latest election uows, as told by
passers-by, nnd the fresh young buds
on the newest branch. About dusk a
wild rumor flow up tho street thut the
by-law had passed, and bo overcome
was the grouse by the nows that it lost
iti grasp, and tho power of its wings at
the same timo, and fell headlong bcv*
eral yards, sustaining tho loss of a
handful of pinfeathers. Recovering
itself before tho lowest brunch wub
reached the bird took up a fresh position and assumed a look of Bid resignation, which, under the circum*
tt-.nce. was worthy of a martyr. All
night long tho bird sat and suffered,
listening to tho multitude as it went
by, tell of tlio victory, of tho fact thut
the road would bo built, mid lastly,
aud what affected it most, of the certain extermination of grouse.
Day dawned on the neighboring hill
t'ips, naturo awakened, and the sun
drovo tho fog down toward L?,dnor'fl,
but none of these inspiriting iucidonti
could restore the crushed spirit of tho
disappointed grouse, and a shade of
deep bluo melancholy came over it.
Again the multitude went by, and
again the story of victory floated upwards and milled the already much
milled garments of down; nnd then the
oft told tola drovo the poor grouse to
desperation nnd raising from Its perch
it gavo ono lurch forward nnd fell
heavily against the window of Mr.
John McKenzio's houso, breaking its
neck by tho contact. A fitting resting
place was arranged in a pot pie for the
onco happy grouse, and ita requiem
was sung this evoning with a knife and
fork accompaniment.

Aid, Reid said ho thought these firo
