TAID THE PIPER,
The whole expenses of the Fredrieks-
bitrg party were paid for tho King of
Denmark by the Emperor of Russia, and
tho total amount was something terrific,
sinco, apart from the cost of the enter-
tei'tainmcut of tlio immense number bf
persons who wero resident at the Scbloss,
there was a vast outlay in connection
with the army of Russian police agenta
with whutn the wholo neighborhood was
swarming for two months,
WILL LIVE ABROAD.
Tht Duke of Edinburgh has decided to
live abroad, because it was doomed expedient ho should reside at Cobourg for
several months each yoar aa heir to the
duchy, and boeauso, undor the new family nka.c of tho czar, the duchess must
pass at loast three months of every year
in Russia unless she wishes to lose one-
third of her allowance from the imperial
treasury, Tho Duke and Duchess of
Edinburgh appear likoly to becomo very
considerable porsoimges in Germany, as
they are in high favor at Berlin, and are
now on excellent torins with the Duke of
Saxe-Cobourg-Gotha. I am afraid the
Duchess of Edinburgh can hardly be said
to have mado herself exactly popular in
her husband's country, nud several reason, have combined to bring this about,
but to the naval oflicers who served under hiin at Malta, she wus everything
that was kind nnd gracious, and to thoso
wlto have boen on terms of sufficient intimacy wittt. hor royal highness to warrant doing ao have sont her little souvenirs ou hor birthday, according to their
means. It is said tho Duke and Duchess
of Edinburgh nro somewhat anxlor"
about the health of their' sou, Alfret
whose constitution has never been n
bast. Ho is, I "hear, extremely intil)
gent and a well-educated boy, butl
looks very delicate.
RDSSIAS VlSlTORfl.
The French, who arc painfully anxious
to bo ou good torms with Russia, point
well enough to tbo faet that, although
the anticipated visit of tho czar to tno
exhibition has not taken place, there
were, at tho end of last week, no fewer
than seven members of the imperial family at Paris.
OYSTERS ANIl TYPHOID l-'BVBR.

London, Oct. 28.--The English

of tho fact that the alliance hns uot
only the countenanced, but thespooifio
approval of tho Queen, the Prince and
Princess of Wales and the Empress
Froderick, tho paucity of any complimentary allusion to tho affair is tho
more to bo wondered at. Nono of
them, however, go to the length nf

foroe believo that it is a matter in
whioh England has no interest.

will arrive at the G. P. N, Go's, wharf
about 4 o'clock p.m. Hia excellency

It remains to be seen whether it is a
wise movo or not The province eould
havo ono good show eaoh year, but
when it cornea to supporting two thore

Aid. Curtis recommended the insertion of a notice in lho local papers warning all persons againBt blasting within
a certain distance of dwelling houses,

Aid. Calbick said he had seen a rook

diviaions of lots 4 and 25 in suburban ;
block. Received.
Aid. Jacques objected to the filing 1
of this communication before he had
eased his mind in regard to it. He i
said it was a piece of the greatest impertinence on the part of the council to
presume to dictate to private property
owners what they should or should not
do with their own property; and be
would suggest that an ample apology be
made Rand Bros, for this uncalled for
action. The gentlemen had a right to
"kick" and they had -'kicked" with
commendable vigor.
Aid. Keary rose and solemnly asked
his worship the meaning of the word
"kick" (laughter). The corporation
dictionary having been mislaid, this
philological query was shelved for fu-
ure examination. Aid. Jaques snorted
indignantly aa Aid. Keary resumed his
seat amid the laughter of the board and
audience.
His worship explained that Mr.
Rand had merely been notified that if
tho street waa not laid out properly
tho city could not tako it over. Hii
worship alao explained how street,
ought to be laid out
Aid. Jaques jumped to hia feet and
snid, wagging hia pencil at the mayor,
it would tako you nnd half a dozen
other mayors and all tho Philadelphia
lawyers in the world to tell how the
city of New Woatminster is laid out.
(Laughter).
Aid, Reid suid it was a slmme that
every man that owned a little pieco of
lnnd should be allowed to make streets
through it just to suit his own pocket
ond not for the publio good. The
communication after a stormy debate
wa™ iiled.
From tho ohief uf police notifying
council thut several hotol keepers had
been violating tho liquor license bylaw of 1880, and asking instructions ai
to propor aotion to take and Baying the
police committee had never been properly urganized according to act of incorporation. Ou motion the chief of
polico was instructed to make himsolf
familiar with all by-laws and enforoe
them without further reference to the
council.
From tlio chiof of police, drawing
the attontion uf tho council to the fact
that preparations were being mado for
the erection of a verandah iu front of
Stewart & Cash's hotel, contrary to the
provisions of the streets and sidewalks
PI
by-law, and the resolution passed by
the council on the 21st inst. A long
discussion ensued upon this vexed
question and finally on motion tho
communication wai filed.
From the deputy minister of marine,
acknowledging receipt of the mayor's
telegram regarding the resolution
passed by tho counoil against the erection of the proposed bridge across the
Fraser river at the Mission, and stating that a copy of the telegram had
been forwarded to the department of
railways and canals, aa it appeared to
hiin to appertain more to those departments than to his. Received and
filed.
Uis worship said ho had received a
telegram from Hon. E. Dewdney asking for the extreme broadth of beam
of the largest steamer navigating the
Fraser abovo Westminster. Tho Irving had beon carefully measured and
found to be 44 feet beam over all.
This measurement was sent to Mr,
Dewdney.
Aid, Jaques said it waa more than
probablo that owing to the increasing
traffio on the Fraser, steamers would
have to take scows alongside on their
trips, -'and with a 44 foot beam and a
soow alongside, it's goin' to be mighty
tight squeezing to get thom through an
80 foot draw, and don't you forgit it."
Aid. Reid drew attention to the faot
    that great booms of logs would be con-

Oo. had a 45,000 acre timber limit up
the river, and if they were to get their
work done with any despatch the fewer hindrances in the way tho hotter.
A boom of logs might be a 100 feet
wide often enough and in such a stiff
curront even a much smaller boom
would be hard to handle through such
a small draw.
His worship said the matter of log
towing and scows had been well represented to the authorities in the east,
Tho clerk said that Mr. Hendry
speaking at a meeting of the board of
trade had said that the log booms were
not made so large that they would not
go through the draw easily.
Aid. Shiles said that navigating a
boom of logs was a totally different
kind of seamanship than that required
to steer a boat. The boom was apt to
swing around and in going through so
narrow a passage as this draw was proposed to be the result would be unpleasant in the extreme.
Aid. Jaques took the floor and said
there were millions of logs to come
down the Fraser to the mills, and to
attempt tu hinder the passage of logs
«ml other craft by patting up a im-an,
little, 80-foot draw, was simply suicidal, It was the C. P. R. that was doing this; it wna a meun, low trick, on
their part to shut off this town from
the upper part of the district, and thB
council would have to make a bold
stand against that company right hore.
Thoy would have to "kick vigorously,
and right on the spot. What had

community; if she lost that they had
all better sell out and quit for pastures .

Aid. Ewen said the matter of logs
fisssing the bridge had been thorough-
y gone into before and had been carefully pointed oot to the deportment.
The counoil bad done all thoy could
about it.
Aid. McPhaden said the council
ought to insist on a 100 foot draw at
the leaat on aocount of the shallow
place on the side when the draw was at
low wator.
Moved by Aid. Jaques, seconded by
Aid. McPhaden, that in the opin'on of
this council a draw of leas than 100 foet
a't the Mission bridge would be detrimental to the rapidly growing interests
of this city for reasons already ox-
piessed.   Carried.
From Bavie and Bodwell re the
claim of T. Gurrie, of Victoria, in regard to the flags sent here for the exhibition, and stating that several Bugs

The police committee's report contained an item referring the account of
Messrs. Eberts and Taylor for legal
services, $350, to tbo financial committee. Aid. Keary took exception to
this amount and Baid that if things
went on like thia they would lu-ve to
anticipate next year's revenue.
There was a sweet smile of pity on
Aid. Jaques' face as he slowly roue and
said, "If Aid. Keary had been in this

would think this account pretty light."

Tho Empirtij in discussing the
various health ami pleasure resorts
of the continent, concludes with the
following; "British Oolumbia is
likely to bo generally recognized us
n winter sanitarium of much merit
Tho winters aro suflioiently decided
everywhere to compel tlio heating
of bouse., evory day in tho cold sen-
son. Yet many localities arc us
warm as the sea coast of Virginia
and Carolina. The sojourner can
havo this equal warmth, wot or dry,
as he wishes. Ho can choose Victoria or New Westminster, if be
does not object to abundant rain, or
if he wants os little wet as possiblo
ho can go to Nanaimo or any other
locality protected from the rainy
winds of tbe Pacific by the chainof
mountains running lengthwise
through Vancouver Islnnd, In
fact, bri tish Columbia affords, within a mdius of a hundred miles, every
condition of heat, cold, dryness and
wot to bo found in the Dominicta.
The chronic invalid, if he doesn't
know what is best for him, can shift
himself from zero frosts to the tmlmi-
iicss of .Southern France in less than
a day's travel I" In so fow words,
our cotemporary gives a fair general
view of the merits of British Columbia, and of the different sections
mentioned, as a winter sanitarium.
Britisli Columbia is unquestionably
one of tho healthiest and most agreeable countries to livo in that could
bo mentioned, antl not only in winter, but all the year round. It would
be a mistake to suppose that there
are not many countries and localities
which it is just as desirable, in tho
interests of comfort and health, to
get out of during the summer as in
the winter. And Britisli Columbia
offers an almost perfect asylum in
either caso. If the winters nre
mild, equable, and of short duration
—utter strangers to the wild blizzards, cruel frosts, terriblo snow
storms*, and five months'" blockades
of eastern nnd interior countries—so
aro the summers balmy and delightful—the fierce beat, with iti attendant prostration and inevitable sun-
stroke, so common in many parts of
the continent, being happily unknown in this favored province.
British Columbia has long possessed
tbe climatic advantages that give
her such a premium over the greater
part of this continent at least, but
the world is just beginning to lind
it out. The now rapidly becoming
famed salubriousness of the Pacific
province is destined to be a very important factor in the speedy settling
up and development of tho oountry.
A healthful and agreeable climate
tbe year round is nn asset that is
not to be despised, even when compared with more substantial advantages, of which tlie province also has
it=< full share. Tho resources and
advantages of this province, which
have been "under a bushel," so to
speak, are becoming better known
every duy, und the noxt few years
will witness such nu accession to our
population und wealth as will outstrip tiie sensible growth of the
wholo former period of tbe country's
history. The various cities will
reap largely in this harvest, especially those that ure wide-awako
enough to prepare to gather it. Nature bus dono muoh for all of thero,
but for nono more than for tbe royal
city. With its beautiful southern
slope, charming surroundings and
delightful climate, all that is required is the turning of theae to
account, by supplementing tho
dower of nature with tho improve-
ni'mts and adornments of art, to
make this oity the most attractive
in the provinoe and on tho coast for
tho JiOfilth, wealth, and pleasure
.seeker. Tu this end all street, park

judiciously expended on tbo objects
above enumerated and for kindred
purposes must in a short time repay
its expenditure fourfold.
spring, but others, equally as good,
join issue with them. Undoubtedly
tho development of tho gold fields of
South Afriea is having a great influence on the English market,
Week after week, in fact dny after
day, new South African mining
companies seo the light, and aro
nearly always fully subscribed.
Mining in South Africa cannot bo
carried on without machinery; consequently, shipment.1" of crushing and
grinding mills are a constant occurrence, unci there is quite a rush of
representatives of English houses to
tbe gold fields. Another feature of
importance, both to England and
Africa, is tlie great development of
agriculture now taking place in the
latter country, aud England is taking the bulk of the orders for tho
implements necessary for tlto cultiva
tion of the soil. Tho directors' roport of the Standard Bank of South
Africa shows immense material progress, the declared dividends being
14 per cent, and .£30,000 being put
to reserve. --During the first half
of this year,""1 says the Pull Mali Gazette, "nativo gold was sent to Eng*
land from tho Transvaal to tho extent of ,£.390.000, and beforo tho
close of tbo year ono million and a
half will have arrived from the same
source." Burmah, too, is an improving market for English goods.
Theso are points not to bu overlooked in forecasting the probability
of tho duration of tlio present state
of trade in tho Britisli Isles, which
appear to have just entered into a
new period of prosperity, likely to
endure for a year or two. Several
important iron companies havo lately
issued their half yearly reports, and
in nearly every case increased dividends have been earned, in somo instances paying a dividend for the
lirst time for many years. The demand for railway material is characterized as extraordinary, and makers in many instances decliuo to
quote. Shipbuilding still continues
brisk, and both on the Tyne and
Olyde high pressure is lhe order of
the day. When tho financial chapter in the history of tho year comes
to be written, ono commercial feature should bo prominent, /. _., the
enormous number of limited liability
companies floated on the London
money market. In the winter and
spring, and even well on into the
summer, they appeared by shoals.
Now the autumn season has commenced, and in one day in the early
part of this month no fever than
seven new companies issued prospectuses inviting capital. When
new companies spring ou the market
as thickly as this, it is a dear indication that there is a large quantity
of capital ready for investment.
Some of this surplus might surely,
without much difficulty, be diverted
to Britisli Oolumbia, and the capitalists would bo very suro of a handsome return for  their  investment.

Tho London money market is a
very fair index of the genoral stato
of trade in tbo United Kingdom,
For many yenrs past a continuous
depression has overhung tho com*
-. merce of England, but, if recent advices are worth anything, thero is a
strong indication that better times
are dawning. Tho latest reports
from all the principal industrial centres speak of a general stiffening in
prices and increased profits, in spite
of the upward movement of wages.
The iron, coal and engineering are
undoubtedly lim trades thus affected,

In tho fairytales tho beautiful maidens

stood before the mirror with my oyos olosed,
so as lo mislead them. Ono day I for«ot

beholding long, shining ringlets, milk whilo

my oharaoter, I becamo a small oynlo.
Now I havo learned lho truo moaning of
tiio fairy talo.
Tin; world of women pays loo much hood
to iis looking-glass—tho moro physical
beauty Is gazed upon nnd thought pf to tlio
neglect of nil else, bopousp there ia a popular
belief afloat thai only beautiful women arc
attractive. Women who aro plain, boyom]
aU possibility oE ever becoming handsome,
Btill devote their timo to their personal
adornment, undor tho Impression that by
so doing thoy will becomo better looking
ond more obarmlng, when in reality If they
would turn tlielr backs upon thoir mirrors
they might indeed far outshine the beautiful women around them. If tboy would do-
voto the time they now wasto In vain eii-
doavorsiorpbyslaal improvement to cultivating tholr minds, improving their manners and conversation, thoy would lind, liko
the maiden of tho fairy talo, that tho mirror
was "a delusion and a snare."
Tlio most attractive women in society today tire not tho acknowledged beauties In
many instances. Often we seo lhc homeliest
girl in an assemblage the recipient of the
most favor**, becauso of her bright manners,
bar brilliant conversation, 01* lier keen wit.
Such a ono reigns supremo when tho insipid beauty of tho season is no longer admired. Beauty is of itself attractive; it
pleases the eye and charms the beholder
for awhile, but beauty alone will not make
a woman popular.
Women are much liko flowers; tbo ones
that havo beauty and mind, well cultivated,
are liko the flowers with beauty and fra-
grnnco--*tbey tiro never-ending sources of
delight. Others aro fair to look upon, buta
close inspection discovers a thorn. Tlio
third ™imt are liko tho homely wall flower,
neither handsomo or graceful, but so full of
siveotuess lhat to bo near thom is joy inexpressible. So many girls, who are brought
up with the knowledge that thoy aro gifted
with fot-iiB and faces of unusual loveliness,
depend loo much upou thoso advantages for
tholr success In lifo. Thoy never realize
the necessity of applying themselves to tho
acquisition of knowlodgo; they grow to
womanhood with meager educations, no accomplishments, and a much exaggerated
opinion of their charms. Tho result is that
they oujoy only for a brief timo tho prcstigo
for wh hill tne:* nro so ambitious.
Borne of the plainest women I ever know
were tiio greatest favorites. Tholr presenco
in a room was tho signal for good humored
enjoyment, Timo never flagged when tboy
were of the party. Tho lack of mere facial
symmetry was forgotten when under tho
spell of their gonial influence. It is not unusual to see a haudsomo man wedded to a
homely womun, Wo havo all beard, and
perhaps made the remark, "Why, what did
such a good-looking man ever seo iu that
woman to lovo.' Wo uro thinking of only
tbo outward appearance, when, in truth, tho
cuaruotor of suoh u woman may bo so lovely nnd tiiti-ii. tivo to thoso who know hor that
nono "Would hnvo her different If thoy could.
It is a groat pity wliea a girl allows herself
to grow discontented and unhappy about
herlpoks. When this is tho case it is timo
for her to hoofi tho fairy's warning and
shun tiio mirror by thinking I03B of appearances and moro of other things.
I know a most nttractivo girl, who is far
from protty. I heard her once say in reply
io a remark thut sho was always so jolly
md pleasant: "Yes, I huvo to bo so or bo
considered u nonentity, for you know I
haven't Madge's beauty to tako mo ovor

own efforts to please, succeeded in winning
friends and warm ndntirct-s on ovory hand.
She realized Ubr lack of beauty, nnd' knowing that sho cuuld novor remodel tho phys-
lognomy God had givon Her, sho bent hor

HIS NOTIFICATION.
How Thornton Executed Hia Oom-
/; mission. /
"She'll havo to go; ain't no wayoiito1
thit. She'll have to skip," said Dave Kinney. He squinted in a croas-oyedmannerat
tlto craoker-erumb oa hiB tawny, scraggy
beard, and transferred it carefully to his
mouth. Thoro was a wedge of cheese on
his left knee. When the Fence Corners
School Hoard—originally Fennet. s Corners, but thus aptly abbreviated—held a
meetiiiK, it was, by general agreement, in
old Hi-ilk.' grocery, where crackers and
ohocso, and mayhap a herring, might re*
liovo its tedium. But to-night there was on
alleviating interest.
"About tho size of it," said Silas Saunders. Ho preferred tobacco, and rolled a
quid undor his tonguo. ''Thi a ain't no place
for hor here. Why, I wouldn't answer for
the consequences if Bhe staid; there ain't
no tellln' what might happen, ner what
deviltry thomboyB might bo up to. Look
(it Corny Bourke, six foot two or threo if
Uc'a un inch, and ehuck full, ohuok full,
chuck full! He's always bc'-t tho ono to

doubt but what It's his idee this timo. Bar-
tinuliti' tho school-house right out bold

'u'thought o'tAatf"
'i'hora was something of contemplative
n-i--iii.ition in his tono. ***"■
■'Uf-iii' to bo done, whoevor's doln' it,'
i.nid Kinney, exploring his cracker-bag.

uracil; what they «W." <etv&
Uo bad told it before; He had callod tbe
mooting tor tho purpose of telling it. But
it was interesting to dwell upon,   .-
Tliero was an impressive silence.
"Wall, we'll have to glvo her notice,
You're jest the one to do it, Thornton—ehl"
Saunders observed to the third member
of the board. He was himself uneasy.
"Sho got along fust-rate, summer term," he
added. He appeared to feel a vague and
wholly impotent regret "NoecU the money,
should jodge." -**>.. *--***fi*-'
"Shoneed't 'a' .de no calculations to
teach no winter terra hor—not to Fence
Corners," Kinnuy responded, with Borne
contempt. "If there h'aln't be'n a winter
i*-riiv*-yettr3 but what there's be'n n rum-
■ntB,*i.fl gener'lyHchool abut up, w'y, she
no-jdn't 'a' looked rer thero pott, to be."
It iv.m unanswerable, but the Btore-keepor

counter,
"I shimld think that gang ought to be
.roi.oiiiV'hosaid.
lie expected no rejoinder, and got none,
ilie Mi.-Iiool Hoard'ti attention centered upon
•losti.U whimsical irrelevancy.
"'.uckon you're tie one to notify hor,
I'll .niton," suid Saunders, again.
Ilo wriggled unquiet ly on his stool.
• Tlus.-iitoiisatmotionle.is. Whether In faot
or by a trick of the ill-burning lamp on tbe
■!(i'.™!>™',hls good-looking faco withlts heavy,
ligliu moustache, appeared pale. Ho sat
-villi luanrins crossed on his knees and hiB
eye.*- on tho lloor, silent.
'•■Tout ho," said Kinney, with au air of im*
par-Hut decision. "Toucan git it off bettor
'n ''minders or me, Thornton. You'ro a
hotter looklu' nun, anyhow, and you'ro better rigged up, he concluded, with politic
aininbleness. ...«
Tln.yuiado an attempt at a careless dis*
misa. lot tho subject. Kinney got up and
threw hiB cheeBO rind in the stove. Thornton passed bis hand over hiB mouth and
s .vui J >wed hard.
"You can just put it easy," Baid Kinney,
encouragingly. "You oan tell her jest how
'tis, nnd how It's for her own good, and
ain't to bo put off ner avoided. You can
fcllhor sbe dono fli-st-cftm, summer term.
W'y you enn toll hor jest what you'ro a-
mine to," cried Kinney, magnanimously.
Their colleague arose. Ho was a tall aud
powerful young fellow, but there was an
udd laxity in his movements now as ho went
toward tho door, He hold his bat-brim to
Itls tips, too, and turned his face away from
tho light. Hanks stared after him till the
door closed.
"I s'spoBe you've found out that Jim
Thornton's about the bashfulest feller ln
town, ain't youl" ho queried.
, The i-o was no response.
■'• "And you've prob'ly Buspicloncd, same aB
other folks, that he's kind o' sweet on the
Kehool-niu'ani, or would bo if hedastl" pur.
sued tlie store-keeper.
The School Board waa silent,
"Wai," ho concluded, with a grin, half of
disgust, half of admiration, "you couldn't
'a' hired mo to be'n that mean to a ycllcr
dog-not to a yeller dogi"
Thornton made hia way up tho road
through a warm and lightly falling early
snow that whitened and softened and beau-
lied it, dark as it was from tho infrcquency
ot buildings and bubbly with the frozen
tr. ml. He forgot to put his hat ou till he mot
it man in a wagon, who stared at him. His
fuco and huir wero damp with melted italics
lio wont slowly, almost creepingly, for
thorn wna in his heart a terrible, sinking
dread of whut ho must do. It was almost
.more limn lio could master.
' Whom whs sho? Bissel's; he knew sho
hoarded at BIbscI's and It waa not far; ho
i-nuid seo its light through the snow-laden
t roes. Tho pain at bis heart waa all but
physical; he winced, and kept his hand on
liii nervous mouth; thoro was a mist in his
-eyes, aud it grow Into tears. He was uot
i-m-jaed at them, nor ashamed of them; ho
wiped them off moehanicolly with his rough,
strong hand, He did not know whether
tbey wore from pity of her or of himself;
ho know not which was tho stronger with*
In him; he was not elearly conscious of
cith or, but of a dull unhapplnoss such as he
had never known. ■*.
He lookod down at his clothes with faint
shame; they woro not his best ones. He
had a roody-mado suit at home, but thoso
his mother had made. Bo wished thoy
looked bettor. Tbe light in Bissel's window
■•nut id™ long shadow on tho whito ground.
It wavered thero, shrinking and lingering;
then it pushed on and up to the door.
< It was not the custom in Fonco Corners
to rapt It would havo been looked upon as a
useless formality. He stepped Into Bissel's
Inrgc, scantily furnished, rag-carpeted best
room. * ■ -.••_■
He gospod as be stood then. He had
vat-uuly hoped for a littlo reprieve, but sbe
eat thoro by tbe lamp, a tono, bonding
ovor some work. Bho rose at his entrance,
and oame forward a little to offer hor hand;
but ho did not soo it, and lhe dropped lt
back in awkward haste, ada
"Won'tyoutakoaohalrl^shesaid. W
Sho brought one forward. Thornton sat
down. Ho droppod bis hat as he did so, and
pieked it up with a red face. Then ho sat
still. He would bave tried to speak, but he
know be oould not; his ton-pie folt thick
and Immovable, , .»■«•» .
"It's snowing,ain't it,"said tho school-
teacher; she boro tho marks of diffidence
hor™-. .f In her timorous voice and look,
Thortonnodded; lt was all he could do.
Ho stared at her fixedly, almost vacuously.
His inlud wandered baok and strove to
anchor Itself to. something. Once he had
spen t an ovenlngat Bissel's, on the occasion
of a sociable, and taken her hand In one of
tho gumes; onco he had overtaken hor, lu a
wagon, on hor way to school and given hor
aim. That was ill. Bethought It might
havo beon less hard for him if thoro had
boon something more, but that was all his
morbid self-distrustfulness had allowed
him. .        .*.-.-'-■• ...
Tho ticking of a clock on a oorner-stand
flltod tho silence. It was a round, ntckoi
clock, and it ticked ao loudly as to force
itself upon them, tt -
"That's my school-clock," satd the teacher. "I am all ready for to-morrow. Thoro
nre my books over thero with It and the
roglster,  —
Tho school director dropped his misorablo
oyes to the faded stripe In the carpet at his
feet, but ho did not seo it; hts hat shook
with tho trembling of his hands.
"I've ho'u thinking how many I'll have,
likely," tho Bchool-teaohor wont on. His
misery imparted itself to her in a degree of
ner vmis.ni!>.!!, and sho lot hor work drop. "I
hnd twenty.flvo this summer; there's always moro winters, ain't there 1"
Uo managed to say yos. Bis oyos wero
wandering ubout the room now, his lips
Ictlaa if Ior air. Ho saw a new pjinn in
ihe window.! c*>ulUG^y puttiod-a cuibphoi
•Hittlclcfboutlie molodoon—a bronlriiijbo
-ano sent of a chair—a small tub fitted wltli
white asters still In bloom. He continued
looking ut these,
"They're real late, ain't they?" snid tho
girl. "They're mine, I potted'em myselt
and 2 guess they'll last best part of the winter; I've beard they will, took care of. Do
.ou want ono)"
Sho put down her work and went and
picked one. Then, with a Bhy laugh, (die
took tier. cis.-ors and went back to them.
"Mny be your mothor'd liko a few; sho
hain't got 'cm, has Bhe?" she said.
Shcmmloa bunch and tied it with tier
black thread, Thornton watched her; a
slight girl in a cheap and well-worn dross,
her dark hair in a girlish braid, and hor
eyes mild. This she was, but who Bhall tell
yrtint lid wusl His agony rose, culnihialo-1
as sho turned to him; ho clutched his hat
till us still brim cracked. Sho was coining
townrd him with tho flowers.
"There, may be sho'd like a fow," she repealed, fnin t.heartodiy; but bo did not hear
her. He folt Ida fuco uflamo li!;e lire, nnd
acliokmg m his throat. He struggled to
speak, and did make tin Inarticulate sound,
at whleli sho looked at hlm in wonder.
Ho lookod up at hor pitifully—and then fell
Btumblingiy on hir. knees at her feot nml
burled his face in Iter skirt, aud groping
Tor her hands, pulled tbem down till they
pressed tits throbbing head and rested
thoro, her happy, wondering tears falling
upon them.

" Dushful'" said Unvo Kinney to Hanks,
tbo nt ore keeper. "I'd liko to know what's

bow.
At our hotol the soup had invariably been
seasoned so high with cayenne pepper tlr.it
not one out of ten could moro thantasto it,
says a writer lu tho Detroit Freo Pros a
Tho samo was truo of tho deviled cUimo
Ono day I made n kick, and In flvo minuter'
I had balf a dozen guests with mc. Wi
intorviowod tho landlord and his reply was,
"Ihavo nothing to aay about it Yo*
must go to tho chief cook."
Wo Bought an interview with tbatimif-
nato. Ho was a colored man with the
dignity of a Boman Sonator. Wo made our
complaint, and ho replied;
"Isoiisou dat soup an' dom clams to suit
my taste."
"But it doesn't suit ours."
"Can't help dat, Bab."
"Wo want loss popper.",
"Cun't help dot."
■ 'Do you refuse to mako a change t"
"I surtinly do, sab, I 'lows nobody to tell
mo what to do."
Wo returned to the verandah and went
Into convention. Evory minuto addod H
our numerical strength, and in a quarter of
an hour wo numbered forty mon. Then ii
was unanimously
"Resolved, Tbat if tho cook refuses to uno
toss popper we seek somo other hotel."
Delegates were appointed to wait on tb-
landlord, and ho replied:
"'Gentlemen, I am sorry, but I dare no'
interfere."
Forty rooms wero vacated, forty trunb
packed and thon mino host wilted. II-
callcd ln tho cook, and, though that iudivio
ual attempted to stand on his dignity, in
had to wilt. By this time the excitement
was Intense, and had the forty gono thoy
would havo been followed by a hundred
more. "Less' pepper" was tbe watchword all over tho houso, and It meant;:
groat deal to the landlord. Wo kicked, wc
saw, wo conquered, and the noxt soup mul
oxactly suited tho popular taste. Tin
cook is still tho unseen powor behind tin
throno, but he has skipped a cog and no en
Is afraid of blm any longor.

Vancouver will tako tho field with
aeveral new players who aro said to be
among tho best now in tho province,
nnd whoso presence will make the

Tlmrou-sEhbrcil Cattle,
Mr. j. T. Wilkinson, of Chilliwack,
arrived from Hamilton, Ont,, yesterday, bringing with him a carload of
thoroughbred stock. The cattle aro
all pedigree Ullimala and will prove a
great acquisition to the ranchers who
are anxious to improve their herds. A
ram brought by Mr. Wilkinson is a
particularly lino animal. It has been
entered in 43 competitions und succeeded in carrying away 41 prizes, a
record quite wonderful to say tho least.
Tho str. Irving convoyed Mr. Wilkinson's cattle to Chilliwack today. Enterprise of this kind is rapidly extending among tho farmers of British 0o*
lunibm, and if it is maintained for a
few yoars longer Westminster district
will contain some or lhe finest h .rds un

Mr. Rynll, who arrived from Brandon lust weok nnd played in Saturday's

Where are lhc lobsters?
The question is often asked "when
is tho fisheries department going to
send that carload of live lobsters to
British Columbia?1' It was understood
thai the lobsters, nfter tho failure last
year, would be brought out early this
season, but nothing haa beon hoard on
the subject of lato. Tho American
government made n completo success
of transplanting the caustacua from the
Atlantic to the waters of Puget Sound,
and many experts believo that if tho
lobstors wove only planted in the
numerous inlets along tho coast British
Columbia would soon havo a lobster
fishery second only in valuo to tho salmon fisheries. A few years ago Mr.
Mowat, inspector of fisheries, und
Cnpt. Pittendrigh made ft careful examination of the north arm of Burrard
Inlet und found tho conditions, both aa
to tomporaturo and food, highly satisfactory, which report may bo seen iu
tho fisheries bluo book of that year.
No movo has boon made dining tho
present year in the direction of stocking these waters with lobstors, and it
is to bo hoped tho government will
turn a-1 -ntion to this mattor at nn curly
dato.

Lust night at tho Farmer's Homo an
elderly man namod Johu Chartcria
died of heart disease Mr,,. Charteria
wna quito woll last night nt elovon o'clock, although slightly undor tho influence of liquor, nnd retired to rest
asking that he might bo callod at six
o'olook thia morning. Mr. Chartoris
uaed to be a prosperous wliolesalo manufacturer of cloths and woollens nt
II udders lit Id, Yorkshire, England, nnd
met in his later yeara in that city with
soveral heavy reverses and finally failed. Ho was eminently unfitted for lifo
in this country aud touk hia hard fortune greatly to heart. Ho worked at
anything he could get, day laboring,
canvttssingfor orders for firo extinguish-
era, usher in the assize court nnd bucIi
work. But even in thoso humble vocations tho air of former dignity and
respectability never left him, and ho
was easily picked out from n group of
"horny handed sons of toil" as not eno
ol' them. He waa a man of fino physique and wus ,1 well-known figure on
ouratreets. He oamo to this country
nbout fourteen montha ngo, nnd has n
son in Victoria who haa been telegraphed for. Drs. Cooper and Fagan wero
aware of tho fact that Mr. Charteria
had heart disease' An inquest will bo

[From flrst pnee.]
A meeting of nil tho county court
judges of tho province will bo held in
this oity on November 8th, for tho purpose of drawing np new rules of procedure for the county oourt, aa provided
for by the county court aot. Circulars
have been issued to the members of tho
legal profession asking for suggestions
salaries; he would like to know if theso
men (thu engineers) wero kopt on salary fit a certain time or only from
month to mouth. It wns a actions
imitter antl 'ihould bo seriously dealt
with and without doubt it wanted looking to badly. During a discussion
which waxed hotter at every sontence,
Aid, Jaques and Aid. Keary brought
matters io a climax. Aid, Keary had
made a second reforenco to the conduct of the chairman oftho boaid of
works, and Aid. Jaquea rose und said
ho had just had about enough of this
sort of thing, "Aid. Keary haa been
throwing out a lot of dirty little slurs
at me, and only a cur would do it."
Aid. Keary at once demanded tho protection of the chair, aud earnestly asked his worship to order Aid. Jaquea to
npologiso then nnd thero for his unwarrantable insult. "If you don't,
your worship, thoro la another way
by which J can obtain redress."
Aid. Jnqucs—"Aw, go ahead with
your other way, I don't cnre a rap for
it; and what's more, I'll just nsk you
right hero to -shut up on your slurs at
ine."
Aid. Keary again asked hia worship
to call Aid. Jnquon to order, ua he
would not stand auch language.
Aid. Jntjues--"I don't cnro whothor
you stand it or sit down to it."
Aid. Keary--"Woll, thero ia cor-
tainly another manner in which you
may bo mado to cnro,"
Aid. Jaquea—"Oh! firo awny."
His worship ugnin called tho diapu*
Innts to order,
On motion tho matter was left in the
bunds of the water committee,
A special report waa road of u special mooting held by tho board of
works to cxamino tho charges againat
tho city engineer; alao thnt the assistant engineer was instructed to proceed
with the survey on Lulu Islatid.
Aid, Curtis made a strong speech,
in which ho charged tho bonrd of works
wilh uiisropresont.tioti in regard tu
that clause of tho report about the
charges against the city engineer. On
motion, nnd after a vory heated debute,
the motion was referred back to tho
board of works.
Aid. McPhaden repotted for tho
street naming and numbering committoe na follows: That all streets running east and west retain thu ntimea
by which thoy are now known on tho
official map, thoso streets not namod,
running oust and west, to be named
after towns of tho Dominion. Streets
running north nnd nouth to bo numbered as 1st, 2nd, 3rd streets, commencing ut Park Lane us First street;
theuce running to the west end of tho
city limits. That all streets from Park
Lane eastward be named alphabetical-
ly, as A, B, O, etc.; all intersecting
streets to bo named aftor towns, Tho
report wus adopted nfter a most amusing discussion.

NEW llOSINESS,
Tho pound bylaw was read a first
timo by title nud on motion got its
second perusal.
The park loan uud tho lessen bylaws wero laid ovor until next meeting.
Aid. Curtia said something ought to
bo dune to secure a thoroughly reliable ferry service, The K do K waa
unablo to cross the Fraaer when thoro
was ice in the wator and somuthing
should bc dono ih this matter at once.
Moved by Aid. Reid, seconded by Aid.
Shiles, that tho matter bu referred to
tho railway committeo to look iuto and
report upon at noxt meeting. Carried,
A, M, Nelson's chum fov damage
dono to his bucgy by driving into tho
mud hole at tho hospital wna discussed
wtth much vigor. Several aldermen
said that if this claim wero acknowledged a dangerous precedent would
bo established and claims for damages
of all kinda would pour in by the
bushel
Aid. Curtis related hia own experience in a buggy at tho place mentioned, to tho great amusement of the
board. He said the city ought most
decidedly to pay this claim, ns tho mud
hole was no better than a trap, and
besides, a law suit would probably
cost ten times ns much as the original
claim. The"claim was a just ono. On
motion it was decided to allow Mr.
Nelson §20 for tho damage done to his
buggy.
The plan of the new firo hall wns
produced and examined. Aid. Jaques
expatiated upon tho urgent necessity
of erecting such a building and Aid,
Reid also apoko in favor of tho building. Tho plan, after an interesting
discussion, was received.
Moved by Aid. McPhaden, seconded
by Aid. Keary, that tho board of works
be instructed to build a sidewalk along
tho west aide of Edinburgh st. A dis
cuBsiou, ns per usual, ensued ou this
motion, and ti most amusing ono it
was. Aid. McPhaden attempted to
interrupt Aid. Jaques while that gentleman was delivering ono of his finest
efforts of oratory on tho sidewalk question. Aid. Jaques turned and shouted
tit tho top of his voice, "will you be
kind enough to let me have the lloor
when I'vo got it?" Aid. McPhaden
acceded to thia polite request by collapsing into his chair without a groan.
The motion was finally carried.
Hia worship presented n rough draft
of tho programmo for tho reception of
the govornor-gonoral. It will bo published tn a day or two.
Aid. Curtia gave a very humorous
account of the procession in honor of
Lord Lansdowne. It was moro liko a
funeral procession. Tho band Rot
separated from tho crowd and the
marshal got separated from everybody.
Aid. Reid aaid thero was a space of
about half a milo between tho marshal
and tho band the latter couldn't keep
time and the result was dismal beyond
description. Every elfort will be made
to mako tho coming reception a genuine success. On motion a committeo
consisting of tho mayor, Aid. Keary
and the clork, was appointed to take
charge of tho arrangements and music.
Aid. Keary reported that tho engineer had got up tho specifications for
the water worka nnd that one engineer
will bo sufficient to carry on the work.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Hurly do™!nk.
Em-roil Colombian,-*-Siai If I may
bo permitted to write a few lines, on
early closing, to the merchants, through
the columns of your valuable paper, you
will not only oblige the undersigned, but,
also, I have no doubt, the majority of
the clerks in the city.
As It is well known tho average clerk
works from seven iu the morning till ten
at night, (with tho excoptiou of those
employed in the dry goods atores) ami
taking off an hour, at noon and at eve,
for meals, it leaves eleven hours steady
work, whicli Is longer hours than in any
othor work in the city.. The early closing system, which somo of the dry goods
stores in this city have adopted, ia one
which tholr clerks fool deeply thankful
for, yet if Saturday afternoon weru given, also, they would be able lo engage
iu athletic sports, with tho other young
men of the town, thereby refreshing
themselves, and gotting exorcise, which
Is needful for tho health of matt. Not
only of tho dry gooda merchants, do 1
ask this, but more especially of theso
employed inthe grocery line. In Vancouver, If I mistako not, tho principal
atores close on Saturday afternoon.
