D. 8, Curtia &_ Co.'s exhibit was
unique, and  consisted of a huge hoad,
of u brown color, meant: to represent
the magnifying qualities of the Lauraneo spectiioles, for which they are
agents.   The lloyal City Planing Mills
Co. had 11 line exhibit ou a largo wap*
['011, including salmon cases, samples
of all kinds of dressed lumber and
fancy woodwork.   The Now Westminster   representative  car, docltod with
agricultural produco vt every ooncoiY-
ublu sort uud surnioutitcd by a kind of
throne on  whioh sat a young lady,
representing tho goddess Cures, mot
with a slight accident juat after turning into Mnry street.   The throno began to betray a tendency to roll off,
and at every jolt became more likely
to topple over.  Whon it had reached
sueh a bUsh* that tho young lndy was
holding on for dear life several athletic
yeuug men  gallantly rushed to the
roscue and helped her down on to tho
lower part uf  the car.   Some of tlio
wagons which wore built up pyramid
shape caught thu telophono wires at
Clark min streot and took down half a
floKeh of them.   Somo i1:114s woro neat*
ly sheared off by the wires.    Cross &
Polngdestro had a wagon full of young
men, wearing false faces and most of
them wilh clay pipes stuck in their
mouths.   J. fl. Porkina and several of
his assistants   wore busy painting a
square frame.   With a conse of humor
in everything, Mr. Perkins would occasionally stop manipulating thu brush
and step to tho telephone at tho corner
of the frame, and lako down [luge
orders and ntuitracts for work oil over
the country. Next camo tho Indian encampment with Si washes and klootch*
mon busy doing nothing, aftor the engaging native fashion, Somo wero busy

Tlio carp-utters and other artisans
woro busily engaged on tho laat strokes
of their work when tho crowd bogan to
struggle through tho main entrance to
the grounds, with apologetic glances at
tho half-finished money taker's office.
The doors of tho great building were
kept locked, and even the distinguished
representatives of tho press had almost to truckle and fawn upon tho
stubborn door keeper for admittance.
Thu press-badge, whicli Ib aii "opon
sesame" in nearly all pal is of tlto universe, appeared to havo no terrors for
thoso .bisons, uud ono of them had tho
awful temerity to laugh lho said bui-go
to scorn and slam tho door in tho au- I
gust faee of it.i wearer. Fortunately I
the man was nut apoploctod ou tho
spot as all expected, but ho eventually
allowed the quill-drivors to enter. 0
Battory band, stationed on an elevated
platform beneath tho central dome,
poured forth sweot strains of music in
a finished and masterly manner. Muuy
of tho exhibitors wero busy arranging
their wares to tho best advantage, and
others who had completed that work
were surveying with excusable prido
tho pretty appearance of their display.
INSIDE THE aitOUNlJS.
Tho display ou the fruit  countor  was
startling iu many  ways;  in variety,
quality and looks.   Apples of many
different kinds  formed  the  principal
part of tho exhibit.   Some of tho fruit
was of phenomenal size   and   beauty,
several of the apples weighing two or
three pounds each.   Up in the  front
balcony the Westminster Itiflos fifo and
drum baud enlivened the morning with
their harmonious numbers, taking turn
about with tho 0 Buttery band downstairs.   Tu tho  north  of tho  main
building n number of booths havo boen
built; that  of tho  W.O.T.U.  boing
nearest  tho agricultural  hall.    The
ladies of tlio W.C.T.U. havo shown a
grout deal of enterprise in opening this
lunch room,   and they received at a
later port of tho day  much deserved
patronage.   Tho meals served up nro
excellent in tjuality und ample in quan*
tity; the room hns a seating  capacity
of about SO.   Noxt the dining room
aro a number of cafes,   .-hooting  galleries, ;i shies for  a dime establishments, sandwich counters and  other
places for the salo of such wares.   Tho
quadrangle, around which aro arranged
the pens, stalls aud enclosures for the
nuiniats exhibited, is vast iu size, Ono
side, the east, is devoted to cattle, tho
south to poultry and small stock, tho
norlh tj sheep  and  swine and  tho
west tu homes-,   An informal peopinto
some 01 thoso pons -thawed that aomo
splendid specimens of  live stock nro
present.   Many of  tho horses  wero
being groomed and in must cases their
skin shone liko  satin.   Some of the
stallioiiB aro maguiticent and one especially, a grand, dark, dappled bay with
black points attracted numerous  visitors to view bis beautiful proportions.
Several of tho bulls are lirst class animals, and all nre in prime  condition.
The poultry exhibit is an  especially
good one; almost evory style of chicken known to civilization being present.
A pair of lop eared block rabbits woro
examined  with much    curiosity  by
crowds, all day long.   Tho machinery
exhibit is small, but what thoro is is
go. tl,   Tho animals aro all  comfortably housud and havo plenty of room,
whilo   accommodation   for  watering
them ia completo and convenient The
rucn track opposite tho building presented a sorry spccinclc yesterday morning.   Buggy, cart and waggon wheels
had ripped it into ruts, and (Iiu "wild
mob's million foet," aided by unnumbered hoofs, equine  and  bovine, had
completed tho job of transforming the
level, smooth raco track into a  ridgy
sea of mud tlmt remained a thing of
horror to pedestrian and equestrian nil
day.   Tho raiu sovoral times forgot to
como down, much to everybody's sur*
priso and nobody's sorrow; but when
it did como it wns  sharp and  heavy.
i-.rANl.-f*, A1UJHBS, PECOIIATIONB, ETO.
Tlio judges' stand, immediately opposite lhe grand stand, commands a
view of the entire course, and was
well chosen, ub there is a fine straight
stretch lending past it, in whioh every
facility for noting thu best action of
trotter or racer may be had. The
athletic grounds in the centro ot tho
pork are excellently laid out and nearly two hundred yards of level can be
obtained evon at tho present time
whon the work is not completed. The
lower end of tho grounds is still en*
cumbered by soma trees, mounds, hoi*
lows nml rocks, but when theso aro re*
moved the grounds will bo among the
iinest In tho provinco for athletic purposes. Tho fuuco is not high enough
on the Park lane side; poople standing
on tho sidewalk oan view the wholo
proceedings quito comfortably. To
step outside tho pnrk for a moment, it
may ho noted that the arch now noarly
finished tit the entrance to Park Lane
is a beautiful piece of work. Tho design ia castellated and represents with
surprising fidelity that style of nrchi*
tccturo immortalized in Temple Bar,
London. At the corners are bastions
embrasured and cro nol luted, while tho
central aroh gracefully spanBtho roadway, having on each sido a smaller
arch like tho postern of a castle keep
in tho olden days. Various heraldic
devices displayed on tho face and Bides
of the arch, and  many gay  banners
floating aloft, servo to givo tho   whole
a most happy and artistic ofl'cct.   Tho
structure, which i3 strongly  built of
wood, is being painted a  stono  color.
Tho brat event on Iho days pro
gramme, tho cricket match between
tho junior teams of New Westminster
nud Vancouver, did not tako place on
account of the Vancouver tjam failing
to come.   Our little fellows were extremely disgusted at this tt.ito of af*
fairs, ns they had been making great
preparations for tho match and had
determined to win, or loso in thu attempt.   About 1.0:30 the distant notos
of tho bag-pipes becamo audible and
swellod upon tho brcozo, by degrees.
Soon, a small band, with determination upon their faces, tartan scarfs on
their   shoulders, Scotch  bonnets on
thoir heads and mud upon thoir shoes,
could be noted advancing with stately
strides  up thu Park Lauo sidewalk,
which trc'inblod in ovory nail at tho
march of tho  Caledonians.   Headed
by Colonol McGregor, who marshalled
his small but undaunted baud with a I
stout umbrella, tho clansmen deployed I
into tho grounds to the wild music of
tho Pibroch an Dounil Dhu, played in
great style by Pipo-major Carmiohael.
A general break-up ensued upon tho
halt being called by the colonel.   It
was thought that tho sports would bo
commence™ at tho prescribed hour, 11
o'clock, but there evidently was some
misunderstanding about tho matter, as
nothing  was doue towards bringing
thom on for nearly an hour.   At that
period it was announced that everybody in tho grounds would havo to got
out and pay at the gato if thoy wanted
tu como in again.   The Caledonians
had!decided to mnrch back to townj get
lunch, assemble at the Colonial, and
walk tu the grounds at 12:30.    All
theso arrangements were followed out,
and as aeon as the two hammers, putting tho shots and other paraphernalia
oi Scotland's own peculiar pastimes,
wero tossed over the ratling into the
arena tho entries wero taken and a
commencement mado.    Thero waa a
very poor turn out of athletes, and
thoso who did contest had no occasion
to  strain themselves  In tho various
competitions. (The results of tho differ* !
ent events are as follows: Putting the
heavy shot (21 lbs), there wero 3 entries:   1st, J. A, Murray, 35 feet 2?V
inches; Snd, A. Scott, S2 feet 8 in.;
3rd, D. H. Cameron, 32 feet 1 inch.
Putting light shot, 3 entries: 1st, D.

Tho caber could not be found until the
sports  were  noarly finished.    There
were.5 entries:   1st, A. Scott; 2nd, A.
Matheson,
Tho light weight events wero begun
immediately after the conclusion of the
heavy part of the programme. The
weather, the condition of tho ground,
and tho encroachment of tho crowd,
which would not keep back nnd givo
tho athloto3 a chanco to do their bost,
nil combined to produco tho vory poor
showing which follows. The jumping
especially was vory poor, and there
was no fear of record emashing. Several well known athletes kept ont of
the games because medals instead of
money wero not offered,
Tho first event was the
Kuiiuing Long Leap, 4 entries: 1st,
A. Scott; 19 ft. 4.-i in.; 2nd, W. Hay-
ward, 18 ft. 7 in."
Running High Lonp, 3 entries: 1st,
A. Scolt, D ft. Sorgt. Brimstone, "C"

the former eventually won nt 5 ft. 1 in.

Cameron, 8 ft. IU in.
Standing High "Leap, 3 entries: 1st,
A. Scott jumped 5 feet with case; 2nd,
D. Gray, 4 ft. G in.
Vaulting with the pole. This event
excited much interest and much was
expectod of the athletes, but as will be
seen, tho hi«hcsb jump is a common
starting point with even amateurs. Of
courso tho ground was not what Bt
ought to have been, but nevertheless
the result was rathor disappointing.
There were 4 entries: 1st, A. Scott, 8
ft. fi in.; 2nd, W. Hayward, 8 feot.
Morrison nud Mt-Loau, the other two
competitors, made a gallant, but ineffectual strugglo to get over tho stick
at its highest. Ruth these men have
records of 10 foet in pole vaulting.
Thero were only two teams entered
for tho three-legged race, but it was
decided to tun it off fur lirst money.
Geo. Irvjng and A. Scott won the race
against Bradbury nud another. The
time mado hy the winners in this rcea
was good. Tho sack race caused a
great deal uf fun and was very well
contested; 1st, A, McLean; 2nd, Geo.
Irving.
In the 100 yards race there wore
3 entries: lilt, A. Scott; Geo. Irving
and W. Hayward tied and arranged t;o
run the raco to-day. Good averago
timo wns mado in this race,
400 yards race, 3 entries: 1st, A, |
Scott: 2nd, G. Irving.
Hurdle race, 120 yards, 3 entries;
lat, G. Irving, 2nd, A. Scolt. This
was tho prettiest race of the day and
wus hotly contested, Scott pressing tho
winner over all tho hurdles nnd finishing a trifle behind.
Tho boys raco for youths under 15
had plenty uf ontries, aud ten times
moro noise and confusion in (-tarring
than all the othors put together. The
"kids" woro wrought up to a fearful
pitch of excitement, nnd every youngster had . grip uf his neighbor ao as to
hold him down to the scratch and get
a fair start for himself. The committeo men wero driven nearly crazy with
the vociferous demands from the
racers tu "jest look at that feller, ten
yardsahead, mister'' and, "say, mister,
this feller's got hold 0' iny vost an'
won't leave go (>' me," and bo on. The
raco was a sharp and most exciting
struggle.
The more tender juveniles under 12
years of ago emulated the example of
their elder brethern and mado as much
uproar as if thoy woro about to run
the Dorby.
There wns no girls' race as no competitors camo forward.
Tlio tug-of-war between teams representing Vancouvor aud New Weatmlnster was won by the lattor, but
was disputed, and it was agreed to try
it again to-day. The teams consisted
of 12 stalwart citizens a sido. Great
interoBt was manifested by tho spectators in this event and it was stubbornly contested.   Tho Highland  dancing
tho entertainment is all prepared opposite the grand stand from which an
excellent view of the proceedings can
bo obtained.
Everything considered, the sports
went off very woll, and had it not been
for the rain, there ean bo no doubt
that many of thoso who remained down
in the city would havo availed themselves of the opportunity of viowitis*
the games. As it was those who did
attend were quite well satisfied with
what they hsd seen. Many expressions of surprise and admiration wero
heard concerning the park from thoao
who had not seen it beforo yesterday.
Some who had seen it before any work
was done on it wero exceedingly astonished and inclined to rub their eyes
aud ask if it woro not a dream,
The games concluded about 5:30 p.
in., ami, their motions coufddernbly
accelerated by a heavy shower of rain,
the crowd started for tho oity in a
body.
During tho afternoon all tho exhibits boing ready for inspection, the

SPIRITS OB HUMBUG.
A strange Man Ba*** nd Does Strniiiic
TlilDsza, and I'hUsgM Them Up
to llie Shades.
Last night a representative of Tub
Columbian, accompanied by a friend,
called upon Dr. Schelsinger at his
rooms in a well-known Columbia street
boarding house. This visit was at the
earnest solicitation of the person above
named, and not through any cariosity
or excusable inquisitiveness on the
part of the writer. Tho doctor does a
littlo mild advertising and calls himself a "test medium" and "healer,"
and theso are capable of translation
iuto just what tho mind of the subject of them chooses. Some call it
humbug, rot, rubbish, nonsense, chicanery, legerdemain, and a blankety
blank swindle, while others call it
something not so bad, and others don't
know what to call it. The reporter
and his comrade were shown into
the waiting room, the doctor being
busy with other visitors. Some interesting scraps of the conversation going
on between them, overheard involuntarily, were not of a reassuring kind.
Some strong-minded gentleman wa-i
refusing to pay the bill and using language more emphatic than polite. Soon
tho audience chamber door was opened
aud the representative of the people
entered In. The doctor is a great man
for shaking hands, and gives the right
arm plenty of muscular exercise in that
way. He invited the visitors to he
seated and then carefully explained
that he was In direct communication
with the otber world und could tell
anything his visitors wanted to know.
During this conversation sundry subdued rappings, like a telegraph clicker
with a bad cold, could be heard, aud
the doctor wonld stop now and again
and say, "what is it, guide 1" (he calls
tho invisible individual who does tho
tapping business "guide."). The
"guide" would answer with a hurricane of taps and raps, to which the
doctor nods his head and makes such
remarks as, "Ah I" "oh, yes," "indeed, is that so?'* "well, all right"—
like a person speaking through tho
telephone. The doctor began operations by having oue of his visitors
write out a numbor of names of persons living and dead, aud also the
name uf the writer himself. Theso
names woro cut from the sheet, folded
up and thrown into a hot, which wns
vigorously shaken; then tho dootor, all
Ladner formally introduced   Lieut.*
Governor Nelson, who stepped.Torward
and said thnt the present occasion  reminded him of his old days, and
called to his mind an expression whioh
was common yoars ago on great occasions like this, and that was "this is a
great day for Ireland," and this  was
indeed a groat day for Now Westminster and for British  Columbia.   Tho
clouds and tho rain had passed away
and the sunshine was upon   us liko a
good augury of the future.   Hu hoped
the sun would shine upon all  present,
young and old, and he had great pleasure in declaring tho agricultural society's exhibition open to the publio.   At
tho conclusion of these remarks  threo
hearty cheers were given for his honor
and Mrs. Nelson and tho crouds  who
had been waiting poured into the halls.
When the doors opened a handsome
sight was presented  to  the  view  of
tho visitors.   The interior decorations
on  the  first floor were found to be
complete and so nicely  arranged that
the rough finishing uf the building wus
not observable except on close  -scrutiny.   Directly facing tho main entrance aro the piano and  organ exhibits open and free to the general publio who profess to musical accomplishment!-.   Arranged along the left wall
are some of the exhibits of manufactures, all carefully put together so as
to show the best and  most attractive
side to the public.   Farther back in
tho  hall are  etill  more  dtr days of
manufactures and merchandise,  the
most of which were mentioned yesterday.   Tho displays wero all closely inspected by the multitude of  visitors
and many were  the favorablo comments passed on them.   To the right
of the  main entrance  the field and
garden produco is arranged along tho
wall and on long tables.   They givo
a handsome appearance,  nud   to anyone but a British Columbian the sight
of so mnny mammoth vegetables seems
marvellous.   Not a few Eastern men
viewed tho exhibits with genuine surprise, Borne of the more cauiious tak*.

their return home.
and piping woro postpone*)   until today.   Tho platform  for this part of
I names, took the slips from the hat and
requested tho spirit to tell him which
was the writer's name, and whioh were
dead and which living, Sometimes
the dootor hit it rightly, and his
guesses were very clever, but sometimes he was badly off, After a good
deal of this kind of thing, during
which hii auditors were not at all impressed with either surprise or admiration, tho doctor's face suddenly
shrivelled up in a horrible manner,
like the countenance of a man who has
taken a bite of a lemon, or bitten the
end of his tongue; his hoad sank down
between his shoulders and strong
spasms shook his frame; then, grabbing a hand of eaoh of the visitors he
began a strange kind of monologue,
something in the form of an incantation. This lasted some minutes during whioh he had hauled both his unfortunate auditors to their feet and
jerked them back and forward a number of times. At length the "lit" was
off and the old gentloman, with all the
worst symptoms of a man nbout to
sneeze, oamo to. A harangue on the
tobacoo habit and its evils concluded
the aeanoe and his vssitors took their
leave, one of thom at least having his
ideas of spiritualism more strongly
confirmed and feeling more assured
than ever that the whole thing is an
impudent piece of humbug,
Constable Hawkins, of Hamilton,
Ont., who shot the lunatic Douglas in
a boarding house last week, is to be
arraigned at the aBtlzes now in progress, oharged with murder.
THE   PRIZE 1 ^^^^^^^
were naturally the most closely scrutinized. Among theso were the kidney
potatoes shown by H. King, weighing
a pound each and as fine end clean
looking as anyone could desire. Olose
at hand is T. E. Kitchen's exhibit of
tho round variety and P. Jackman's
sample of a fine variety whieh havo

more than 40 pounds eaeh. Tho exhibits of carrot i and onions made by
Geo. Mead both took first prizes, and
these honors were richly deserved, for

grown in this or any other country,
Tlie squash shown by J. Reece looked
more like gigantic pumpkins than
what they really are but a vegetable of

It is very gratifying to be able to
record tlio fact that,-in spito of tho
dead eet which tho olements lift vo
mado againat us, tho oxhibition is
unhesitatingly ami admiringly pronounced to be a decided success by
many who arc able tp judgo. That
it is far in advance of anything of
tho kind yot held in the province,
and compares well, in point of number; variety and excellaiiejs of exhibits, and in genera! interest, with
any similar show l*elt] auy whore, is
freoly and heartily conceded by those
in a position to make comparisons.
A great mauy moro entries would
have been made if the woather had
been favorablo for tho last throo or
four days, instead of being just about
as inclement as it possibly could be
at this time of year; but the show
is p. splendid success, notwithstanding tho adverso circumstances, and
much of this is duo to tho Indefati-
gaMo oflicers and directors of tho
ass )oiatiop, The celebration, too
—which, perhaps, was more, in the
nal uro of the case, affected by the
unfortunate weather than was the
oxhibition—thanks to llio unbound-,
od energy and tireless and faithful
offt.rt'j of the various committees,
ab( tted by lho hearty aud loyal co
optrabion of thu citizens, hus also
bfit n a fair success so far, and, if the
weather fulfills its present promise
of holding good for the-remainder of
the show days, will be till that could
bo desired in many respects. On
tin. whole, the royal city hns every
reason to bo proud of the materiali*
i*;it'on of Lho grand event for wliich

crelitiibly prepared. While con-
grr'.uiatiui,' ourselves on the flattering success attained, lot us extend

The Victoria city council has
from the iirst focutsud the opposition
against tho government levy upon
the four principal cities of tho province for one-third of the amount of
tho teachers' salaries in the public
schools. This tax, it will bo remembered, is levied each yum* upon the
four chiof cities of tho province,
Victoria, Vancouver, Westminster
and Nanaimo, under tho provisions
of the "Public Schools Amendment
Act, 1888," upon the theory that
thoso oities, beiug accorded govern
ment high schools and possessing
superior educational facilities in the
public schools, should thus refund
to tho provincial treasury one-third
oE the salaries of their public school
teachers, to onablo tho depnrtment to
extend needed educational facilities
to outlying districts of thu provinco
and to carry out necessary improvements whero required. Victoria,
aa wo have stated, has held out
against this tax from tho first and
refused to pay it, and last Monday,
accordingly, action was brought by
tho attorney-general of tho province
vs. the corporation of Victoria, in
the supreme court, boforo Chief Justico Uogbie, to recover the sum of
§15,780, being tho amount duo by
tho oity for the tax in question. Tho
attorney -general appeared for tho
drown, and Mr.TaylorttLborts it Taylor) or behalf of tho defendants, Mr.
Taylor contended that thn act
croiite-d a discriminative tax, and
was therefore unconstitutional and
void. Mis lordship hel-J that inasmuch as the net applied equally to
all hf thn cities of tho province it
wm-; not discriminatory, nnd in
othi r respects ho considered the act
to be free from legal objections.
His lordship, Uiaroforo, gave judgment in favor of tho attorney-general for the amount claimed; with
coat i. Tho Victoria corporation
will appeal the caso, it is stated,
alth mgh tho wisdom of such a step
is tt bo doubted. In tho meanwhile
the othor cities of tho provinco
affected aro taking various stands
on jho question. Vancouver has
payed without a inuruter from
the, lirst, while Nanaimo, following suit lo Viotoria; stronuously
objects, and Westminster, though
aho handed over the tax for the latter half of lust year, lias declined to
pay for the former part of this year,
awaiting further developments, presumably, in what may bodesignated
tho test case of tho government vs.
tho corporation of. Victoria, and so
thn matter stands.
iiontal resorts bettor than they do
thoso of their own ■ country. A
tour through Yorkshire or Surrey
would cost fur more than a trip
through tlio Ardennes or up tho
Rhino, consequently tho latter are
patronized and the former nro not.
lt is but fair to say that the inkecp-
crs strenuously object to the reputation which tho papers would fain
put upon them in this discussion,
but it is likely that visitors from
America as well can bear testimony
from their own experience to .tho
high charges of lho English inns.
The practico has succeeded in alienating tho strouui of travel and turning away a profitable business, and
tho moral is that in all countries
high charges are a shortsighted
policy and surely drivo away travellers. Our readers will bear us out
that this is the very faot wo havo
been trying to impross upon hotel
keepers ami others in connection
with tho present largo gathering of
strangers in this city to tuke part
in and view the exhibition and celebration now in progress. For the
permanent good of our business mou
themselves, as woll as of tho city,
wo trust thut this fact will not be
forgotten, that it distinctly does not
pay—but, rather tho reverse—to endeavor to mako present capital out
of the necessities of tho city's guests
and of tho travelling publio generally. Such ill-advised cupidity inevitably brands a town or city with
a reputation from whicli it does not
soon recover, but suffers incalculable
loss in the long run,
A discussion has been proceeding
in the English press, says an exchange; which hau interest and a
moral for many who do not livo in
England. The discussion referred
to is a series of complaints ngainsb
the charges at the inns and country
hotels of Great Britain. The Englishman, it appears, prefers to go abroad
to spend his holiday, becauso the
cost of staying at tho inns is greater
than similar lodgim,* in Switzerland
or Goruiuny or France. Tho
consequence is that many .of

It is getting to be "dangerous to
bo safe" now for mon in England,
us well as hi America, to entertain
decided views and tako any prominent notion with respect to Irish
affairs, Such organizations as the
Clan-na-(.;.u'l and such characters as
the Fonians and Irish dynamiters
will stop at nothing in the naturo
of atrocious, foul and bloody deeds
to gain imagined advantages, whilo
these aro tho very things that aro
throwing discredit upon and seriously damaging and hindering the Irish
cause. Tho black crime that was
perpetrated in Chicago a few months
ago in tho "removing" of Dr. Oronin
by hired assassins, at the instigation
of an Irish murdering society, appears as though it was likely to have
ti parallel case in England, when all
tho facts shnll havo been developed.
The mysterious disappearance of
Kev. ilr, Barfield, the congregational minister, is causing remark tit
present in England, snys a cotemporary, and amy turn out to be
something more than a nine days
wonder, so that the fuels lira worth
b&aring in mind. Mr. Surlleld, who
resided in Walsall, had been for
somo time publicly identifying him-
self with the government party and
aiding the movement against the
homo rule cause. His activity in
politics aroused hostility in some
quartei'Sj and aa far back aa July
last lie received threatening letters.
Paying no attention to these, the
following warning was addressed to
him anonymously, the writing being
in a femitlo hand :
Rev, Sin.-—Though personally unknown ho you, I have often heard you
oiid admired you, and would do you good
if 1 coiild, Tho warnings you have had
mc rial, and tho rage of those who sent
them Is intense, because you aro advertised to apeak at Chasotbwn in July. Do
bt me beg of you not to go, evil will come
of it if you do—the men who arc en-
gaged in thia work swear they will stop
the parsons if they cau't any ono elso.
Give up going-—wo maybo ordered away
in a few months—and then things may
bc well. 1 daro not tell you who I am—
my life might pay tlto penally—but I am
sincere, and I know I want to save you,
or the Dr. Cronin tragedy may bo repeated in England."
Mr. Barfield disregarded this letter
as he had the others, and went to
London to begin a series of political
lectures in and about the city. Ho
remained in the metropolis for several weeks. Tho report is that
while in London he received an invitation to deliver somo of his loc*
tores in Ireland. Of this invitation
not. much is known. The political
managers were ignorant of it, and it
was only surmised as to what part
of Ireland he could have gone to, if
ho really departed on this mission
at ail. Light on these point.-., however, was subsequently furnished.
Tho carotaker of the Waterford,
Ireland; city hall declares that a
gentleman corresponding in appearance to Mr. Barfield called there
and asked to havo a good seat reserved for Iii in tit the approaching
homo rulo meeting, He never returned to claim it. Mr. .Barfield
haa now been missing slnoo about

BANK  OF   ENGLAND.
SnmotliiiiB About tho  Rlah  Old  I.ady (it
Tfit-ciidtt'i'-'Ui) Sifoat.
A  recent  trial  in  London,   Eng.,   in
wliich llio conversion of "a Now York draft
into Hiuil'of England notes formed u por-
ruslm,,'liiil£ in llio chuin ul' oviUonco liy
wliich tlio prisoners wero convicted Bug-
Kcotctl to tlio Kew York Graphic a brier do*
scHyUou of tlto bank's methods with regard
lo il i issue.
•Iiu* paper on which Iho notes aro printed
is iu.ii.lo by a private factory in Yorkshire
under strictly guarded conditions as to the
water-mark, wliich is no conspicuous a*foat-
uro. It is of -diver whito and bo strong
Unit it will sustain fifty pounds in weight
wlion suspended at the corners. The printing is performed at tlio bank m Thread-
i'('".!lf)atrcot, including tho signatu roof tiio
no.'iiintti maker of tho draft. Tho drafts or
notes used formerly to bo signed by assist-
mitoasliiera, but the isauo eventually bo-
camotoo Inrgo to admit of a sign manual
being Issued, so printing waa substituted.
Each individual noto as soon as issued
linalts number, letter, dato and denomination placed lo its debit in a ledger account,
ilM-percontrabeingilledon tlio return of
lho noto, perhaps tho noxt day. Sorao yoars
agon lot of £1 notes issued ln tho middle of
ln:-i century woro handed in for payment.
A reference to the lodger of tlmt date
slioivcd tlio credit sido of tho noto with cor*
jvipomling numbers to bo open, so tho
drafts wpro duly honored.   - ■   ■*
Thu lowest denomination now issued is of
.'::.', tlm highc-it of ..10,000. A notable fent-
uro of the Bank of England note, whon
i*...:■!Hired with tlmt of other tssuos and
c.v'ulrles, is its crispnoss and elourness.
'L'i o simplicity of design and clearness of
loiiu'lngand figuring aro very contipicu-
ui:*i, 'I ho reason why wo never find tattered
.ii i foul Bank of England bills or bank
iiu'-.-f, as tho Englishman prefers to call
ih in, arises from tho custom of tho bank
never to issue one of its notes a second
timo. This rule is so scrupulously observed
tiiiit uhonld ft thousand notes of -£5 each
I.-*,; 'lln tho morning in exchange for gold
at i lio issue department como Into tho hands
of tho banking departments as a customer's
deposit in thn afternoon, possibly without
having boon untied, thoy would bo immo-
dLitoly .':uicelcd. This cancellation is per*
foi mod by touring off tho signature corn er
of each noto, tho number aud dato boing
Hi.-; recorded by the receiving clork on his
ciJl'inlQl' cash book.
'i'lio mutilated bills at tko banking departments nro collected at short intervals
by a clerk from tlio nccountaut's depart*
'ment, whero thoy aro assorted into thulr
respeellvo denominations and placed to
their individual ledger credits. They aro
thun stored, and after ton years' interval
cou'-igned to tho flninos.
Tin. detection of the forged bank noto is
almost inevitable undor this system. Simply ta Imitate tbo paper is difficult, tlio best
iinU-atio™ being readily perceptible to a
praeitoed touch. To counterfeit tho printing i.-almost impossible, owing to thoab*
B&n'co or complexity to confuso tho eye, and
a third relhnco for tho paying toller an ho
rapidly aoans the notes beforo shoveling
onlllio gold in oxoiiRiigo is a peculiarity
known only to the Initiated.
Should a forgery slip through theso
fruiti'-Utho number and dates and dououi-
in;i "oil must nil correspond wilh tho ledger
ci.-...", nnd should all theso ngrco the
cli'iiu:**!*. are that lho legitimate nolo will
linv-i already filled up tho blank.
It is llie rule in all Loudon banking houses'
nnd In most private establishments to record the data and numbor of every bank
nolo passing through their hands, together
wiili the name of tho person prosontlng It.
Ttio i'.mic of England, moreover, requires
the ii. lorsomont of tho holder of ovory noto
or pur-id of notos presented for exchange
for gold or for notes of other denominations. This system greatly facilitates t he
detection of fraud, and in tho caso whieh
gave occasion to these remarks wna the direct nloiinfl of establishing tho proBOCUting
attorney's theory.
Tho actual cost of oach Bank of England
liu'e issued Is about llvo cents. An ordinary day's issue of notes with a corresponding number of canceled, Is from 20,000 to
:iii,ij;)0, but when a forgery is known to bo
Uflout all of Unit particular denomination are
poured In by their holders for exchange or
redemption, and ns many as 80,000 notes uu-
dor such circumstances havo been presented
• nndonncolcdinoncday.
As au offset to tliis oxponso tho yearly
gain totho bunk iu uote3 destroyed by fire
nnd water amounts to u largo sum, which,
however, is taken into account by tho Government when adjusting Its National debt
and exchequer arrangements with tho bank.
Tho "Old Lady of Threadueedle Street,"
as lho Londoner lovingly oallB the institution, which next to his Queen-he most deeply reveres, is very liberal when dealing
with cases of notes destroyed or mutilated.
The secretary's oflico attends to those mutters, aud thero may bo seen daily remnants
of notes which havo undergone ovory conceivable ordeal short of absolute destruction.
'.ittio pulpy masses that have passed
through the digestive apparatuses of dogs
and children, half burned pieces that havo
un wittingly dono duty as cigar lighters,
remnants of every kind of which enough is
lait to iudicnto in the faintest degree the
original worth—all receive full consideration and lho owners loso nothing. Even
total destruction when fully proved is no
b..r lo indemnification whon good security
against possiblo mistake is given.
GLOVES OF HUMAN'SKIN.
Ttiuy Aru Suit, I'lliibtu ami Much Houglit
Vtn- In France.
"Oloves which are Bold as kid aro often
mado of human skin," said Dr. Mark L.
Nardya, the Greek physician, to a Philadelphia Record ropoitor. "Tho skfu ou tho
iirnisi," continued the physician, "is soft
itmi pliable, und muy bo used in tho making
of gloves. When people buy gloves thoy
never stop to question about tho material of
Which thoy nro mndo. Tho shop-keeper
liimsolf may bo lu Ignerauco, and tho pur-
chaser has no moans of asccrtuming
ivltbtlior the mntorial is human skin or not.
Tl.o foot is, the tanning of human skin is
extensively can led on In Franco and Hv.it-
zei'land. The product is uinmilaclured into
gloves, and thoso aro imported into this
country. Thus you soo a person may bo
Wearing ft port of a distant relative's body
and not know It."
Then lho doctor drew from a drawer
a brau-ueiv pulrof black gloves. 'Thoro,"
he snid, "is a fino article made from
lho t-kitt of a child. As tho hide of a kid
oompiii'DB with tliat of a goat, bo, of
course, docs lho skin of n child .omparo
wiih that of au adult, and Itls muoli sought
in Franco for glovo purposes.
"Tho skin ou a man's back mukefe good
Boli! leather," said tho doctor. "Nature Una

Kryan O'Lynn had no boots for to wear,
So he came to Westminster to buy him a pair.
"I'll have one pair of thick ones and one pair of thin,
If I can find 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 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 wc sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "Be 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.

than ordinary culture or 8|iw,s would
