STANDSTUANO BROUGHT TO TIME.
Liverpool, Sont. 30.—Tho corner
in cotton caused by the manipulations
of the Anglo-Danish speculator, Stand-
strand, completely collapsed to-day.
The bulla discovered this morning
that Standitand was selling, and down
went the prioe of futuro cotton, from
042, at once. It opened to 010. At
the close of the market quotations
stood 621. The arrival of several oar-
goes from the United Statea at tbe end
of the week and the prospective closing of cotton mills in Blackburn, Bolton and Manchester, were too mueh
for Standatrand, and he began to unload early.
KASTEHN RUMBLINGS.
London, Sept 28.—The Armenian
question appears to be entering on a
nuw phase. Several of the powers,
among whom leading iu the matter are
England and Italy, have addressed remonstrances to the Porte, and the
Porte, of course, has "lent an attentive ear," No one believes that any
result will bo produced by these remonstrances, but the co-operation of
England and Italy will be noted as an
evidonco of accord between the two
governments. On the other hand, the
Russians are collecting troops In more
than normal numbers on their aide of
the frontier. The line of frontier ii
not definitely fixed and is in course of
settlement by commissioners of both
powers. Tho elements of misunderstanding are, therefore, at present in
abundance. Optimists argue that there
ate no immediate prospects of these elements being utilised for tbe sufficient
reason that the first shot fired in Armenia may be expected to let Europe
in a blaze. No power, therefore, will
take a step which wonld lead to auch
momentous consequences, except undor the influence of general considerations of policy with which Armenia has
little connection. The danger ia rather
that the incapacity of the Porte to better the conditions of its administration
in Armenia may lead tosome unexpected
outbreak, in which one or other aide
may bo committed in spite of ita policy,
A despatch received late this afternoon
says there ia great excitement at Erzer-
onm over rumorB that the Russians are
preparing to take possession of that
place before winter. The situation of
affairs along the frontier is very unsatisfactory and may become very critical unless better counsels prevail at
Constantinople.

HOLT TRINITY CHUBCII.
In spite of the disagreeable weathor
last evening, thero was a large congregation present at the evening service
at Holy Trinity ohurch. The service
was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Irwin.
Taking for the basis of hia remarks,
tho passages of Hezekiah dealing with
the destruction of Sennacherib a conquering arm and the deliverance of
Jerusalem, the reverend gentleman,
after a graphic historical sketch of
Palestine at that period, the dangers
and tho woes with which the Israelites
were beset, and the ultimate advent
of freedom, following upon the diaper*
sion of the Assyrian host, clearly aud
skilfully worked out tho analogy between this picture of the Jews in their
dark hours and the Christtnn'a prayer
answered after long waiting. There ta
great foroe in prayer and one of the
most powerful books we havo ia the
prayer book; we do not think of that
often enough. The Christian on hia
knees ia at his beat. He is strongest
then. Here again we deal with a terrible power; were we to be judged by
our prayers, how few would be Bared.
If human weakness proves tho power
of God, it also proves the importance
of prayor. We should be definite and
clear-minded in prayer, for it is the
voice of the soul speaking in the highest presence we can conceive. As with
the Jews cooped up in their fortress,
scarce daring to indulge or hope of
rescue; expecting that which is worse
than death, ao it is with the Christian
in his distress. Succor will oome at
length if faith remaina steadfast.
Faith ii what we all want, and
of what avail aro prayers if tho heart
hath not faith 1 Beware of thnt varnish nf religion that is merely the feeling, the sentiment of it; something
that ia always changing and emotional
and haa no depth. But faith will ennoble and ahed glory on the humbleat
life. There ia a common saying, and
would that all could speak and always
think it sincerely, "may wo live more
nearly as we pray."
ST, PAUL'S OHUROH.
At the Reformed Episcopal Church
last evening, Rev. Mr. Haddon spoke
from Psalm 100,15 v.—"And he gave
them their request; but sent leanness
into thetr bouIb"—and said: We aomo-
times get what we should never havo
and what we would not take if wn were
wise. Man trusts too muoh to hia own
wisdom and acts as though he knew
more than the Heavenly Father, and,
like children of earth, wo want our
own will whether it be right or wrong.
There is a certain mysterious principle
here, and elsewhere in the bible, that
aimple stupid men can have their own
way, or are permitted to havo their
own way, to their eternal loss and sorrow.   I make the assertion that God
aometimea grants foolish and wicked
prayers; it seems strange, but it is juit
aa parents treat their childrei, and we
have gained amisi, in that we persistently, asked amisi, and tht re cornea
up from this evidence a wanting that
we should never pray lightly; for our
peace will be destroyed, our i pirit defiled, and God's privilege given to man
abused; prayer ia spoken of aa the
ladder to beaven by which step by
stop we reach the better hnd, but
prayer also may be mado the moans by
which wo can go step by step to hell;
it can mako calamity a blessing and
blessing a calamity; by it wo oan be
either saved or lost.   Now aome of
you might be startled at the truth
clearly laid down fn the text, and you
are ready to enquire how this can possibly be?  You say that you thought
prayer alwaya brought blessing, and
tha view is ao solemn and extraordinary that it is our duty to enquire if
thore is any good foundation for this
assertion and whether the history of
tho nations warrants auch a grave interpretation, or whether this is only an
exceptional ense and of no especial
value and hardly to be recognized as a
principle or law by whioh God regulates the requests of mankind.   The
reverend gentleman enumerated several instances in tho old testament:
The children of Israel desiring flesh
instead of manna and tho plague in
consequence of baviug the request
granted; Balaak's request to Balaam
to curse Israel and God's consequent
anger kindled because   Balaam, although permitted, went against God'a
will.   Sometimes God lets us have out
own way, so that we may see our follj^
and that His way is bettor than our
way.    Parents sometimes let  their
children have their own way, knowing
that they will suffer, just to give them
practical experience of the  folly of
their own way. Israel ahould have hod
no other king but Jehovah; but they
finally, God seeing their importunity,
got permission to have a human king;
but did the permission release them of
the insult to God when they said, m
will have a king?   True, God becamo
not only the consenting party but oo*
operating.   He Baid, "I gave them a
king in mine auger."   Israel repented
and often wished afterwards that they
had never been granted their request.
Will not people in the lost world bo
ready to wail, "If I hnd only listened
to God, heard His voico, and followed
His way."   Sad, sad must be the mis*
take men are making in persistently.
taking their own course, because harm
will ultimately overtake thom.   The
instance which wu reported from Detroit, Mich., a ahort time ago, that of
Pat Gallagher calling to God to paralyze the man who bad taken his pipe,
and tho immediate answer in himself •
being struck and the finding of the
pipe in hia own pooket after tho funeral, is freighted with solemn warnings.   But some people go to the other
extreme and never pray at all.   Whatever mystery there ia aurrounding the
mode of communicating with the Divine Being, neglect to pray ia not the
way out of it; it is a positive duty to
ask for our daily bread, and it ii of
eternal importance to ask God to for*
give ua our sins, and yet while we pray
wo ahould be careful not to mako our
deairea a measure of the Divine beneficence, we should submit to His better
will, HiB better judgment; "not my
will but Thine bo done."   Ourwdls,
so to apeak, ahould be lost in God's.
In asking for particular blessings we
can well entrust tbe whole cane to the
Majesty of heaven, the spirit dwelling
in ub will help us to ask conaistently.
Prayer, oonstant prayer, ii necessary
to our spiritual advancement, and the
more wo pray consistently for clear
hearts and tho abiding presence of tho
Spirit, the higher wo will attain to the
likeness of the Master.   After point*
ing out that the prayer of the Jews,
"His blood be upon ub aud upon our
children," bad been answered, and the
fact that God would grant the roqueat
of those who said to Him, "Depart
from mo, J wont none of Thy way,"
and that He in anger might withdraw
HiB Spirit for ever, the reverend gentleman closed by appealing to his hearers to pray to God aB their Father, and
they would experience blessings evermore.   	
To the Exhibition.
Mr. D. E. Brown, asa'utant general
1 a Sanger and traffic agent C. P. R.,
states tbat it is not the intention of the
oompany to run speoial trains during
exhibition week in Westminster. He
snys it is considered that the three
Snasenger trains to and from the Royal
ity will be quite sufficient to accommodate all who may desire to visit the
provincial fair. However, tickets at
reduced rates, namely half the usual
faro eaoh way, will be issued, and extra cars will be put on if necessary.
Therefore those of our readen who
may bo making their arrangements to
go over tt the exhibition oan leave
here either by the 10 a. m., the 12.46
p. in., or the 0.30 p. in. trains*, and return from Westminster by those leaving that city at 8 a. m,, 1 p. in , ov 4

Sad Fatal Accident.
Passengers by the Isabel bring the
sad news of the accidental death uf a
young man named Thomas Colvin, at
MoPherion's logging camp, four miles
north of Seymour Narrows, on Saturday last, It appears that Colvin was
engaged in chopping down a tree, and
the treo in falling struck another tree,
breaking a large limb. Thia limb
flew back and falling struck Colvin on
the head, crushing in the skull. Every-
that could be done was done, but after
seven hours of unconsciousness, Colvin
expired. The body waa brought down
to Comox, where the funeral took
place, Rev. Mr. Fraser, Presbyterian
miniiter, officiating, The deceased,
who was 28 yeara of age, has two
brothen in Oowiohan, but his paronts
are in the old oountry. He had been
working at the McPhenon camp for
throe yean and was highly esteemed
by his comrades.—.Free Press,

Monday Evening. Scut. 30, 1889.
Exhibition week haa arrived, nnd
everything appears to be getting on
swimmingly for tho exhibition and
celebration, literally us well as figuratively. If the olerk of tlie weather
will only relent beforo Wednesday,
it is certain that we shall linve n most
successful occasion, us city ollicials,
association officers, committees, and
citizens are all co-opera tin'* heart ily
to that end. Thero is now no doubt
that the royal city will do itsolf infinite credit this week, if the
weather will be propitious, and it
is some satisfaction in this connection to know that Capt. Peelo,
whoso authority on meteorological questions is undoubted in this
vicinity, holds out hopes that Jupiter Pluvius will withdraw his unwelcome countenance until nfter the
fair at least. Visitors will find it
well worth their while to come to
tho city during the three days of
the exhibition and colebration this
weok, as the occasion will be the
most interesting and entertaining of
the year. Noither money nor trouble are being spared to make it all
that it should be. Special rates
may bo had on all lines of travel,
anil all who como will bo cordially
welcomed and provided with accommodation.
A cotemporary referring to the
pei.di ig election in this city says
tha j Hr. W. Norman Bole has been
ole ■■•at 3d to the woolsack, evidently
m_;n\„g that that gentleman bad
bee i raised to the bench. The error
is* merely a confusion of terms, but,
although nothing mora than tt lapsus
pinna, deserves n passing correction, Tlioro aro many judges, each
one of whom may bo described us tin
oco-ipant of tho bench, but thero
can bo but ono who is entitled to
the woolsack, whieh is tho presidential seat of tho lord chamberlain in
the house of lords. It is rightly
named, for it is purely and simply a
sack of wool. ltf is-brjlov/ the
throne, nud from it the lord ohSm-
bortain, who takes precedence next
to the Archbishop of Onnterbuiyj
nddresiieH Uio house and puts tbo
questions, It is a peculiarity that,
although hu acts n3 speaker for tho
house, unlike .that functionary in
the lower chamber, ho is accustomed
to speak at its deliberations. The
lord chamberlain is tho principal
legal luminary in Jjlift.,miHtotry', of
the day, and is, by right of his high
oflice, a privy councillor. He is,
too, one of tho commissioners when
tho royal assent is given by proxy
to bills whicli have safoly passed
both houses of parliament, and he
must bo a Protestant. One of his
functions is tho reading of ull messages from the sovereign to parliament. Ho is the possessor of a vast
uinoutof patronage and the guardian
of the persons and possessions of all
wards in chancery. It may be said,
indeed, thut tho sovereign is scarcely
a greater personage,
As cities inoroase in size, the
problem of sewage disposal become**
a moro and moro difficult one to
solvo. The English sanitary etigi
neors, says the Scientific American,
with a densely populated oountry,
including tbe lurgest city in tho
world, as a field for experiment,
havo probably performed more experiments on an actual working
scale than have thoae of any other
nation. Chemical treatment has
been tried in an endless variety of
forms. Tlio A.B.C. process, named
from the initials of the substances
u-jorf in carrying it out, alum, blood
and cli irconl, at one time had an extensive application. Now tno tendency is toward the use of chemical
salt.- alone, aluminum, iron, and calcium compounds being most in
favo;'. Precipitation is assisted by
the addition of comparatively small
amounts of theso salts, perchlorido
of iron, alum, milk of lime, and
others being in use in various places.
After, treatment with chemicals, tbe
BQWi.go ia left at rest to deposit its
solid mattor. The effort is to obtain the latter in as compact a form
of "sludge" as' possible, and during
its pneipitation to deodorize the
liquid portion, so that it may be
disposed of without offense. Tho
engineers interested in this problem
seem to bave had very Utopian
ideals. Their object has been to
dispose of sewago without offense
ana at the same timo profitably.
The first of these ends is easy of attainment, the latter ie probably impossible to achieve. Tlie great problem il how to separate liquid and
solid. Tliis once dono, the solid
oan be desrdoated and disposed of ns
easily as ashes or nny other form of
refuse. , Tho liquid oan bo used for
irrigation. Whore chemicals are
not used, tho separation onn be
effected mechanically. Upward and
downward filtration may be usod in,
connection with and supplementary
to settling in subsidence tanks. The
trouble in purely mechanical treatment is the odor of the effluent
wator. A proper and sufficiently
thorough application of chemicals
only oan remove the odor. The
necessity of perfect deodorization is
most felt in the case of towns and
cities iu tho interior.   Dilution is a
great panacea for this .trouble, but
ia outy practicable near largo bodies
of   water.    Inland cities  have to
produco its clear and innocuous a
filtrate   as   possiblo.     Mechanical
filtration alone will not ellect the
desired result.   In England the disposal of the effluent from filtration
or precipitation is conducted by irrigation to a very large extent.   On
tbe continent tho same system has
been adopted, notably in the cuso of
the city of Berlin,   Overground irrigation upon plowed fields seems to
be very effectual.   In tho United
States subsoil irrigation is used in
an  immense number of  localities,
principally   by private houses and
hotels, und   meets   with   excellent
success.   The sludge or solid matter
remains to be got rid of.    Tho constant effort to make sewage farms
profitable  nnd to make sewage a
source of revenue to tho corporations
of cities producing or disposing of
it, lias to a certain extent caused an
erroneous view to bo taken of tbe
matter.   The conclusion is gradually
forming in tho minds of engineers
that sewage sludge is of little valuo.
The   hopes   so long entertained of
putting it into a markotablo form,
so that it would be in demand as n
fertilizer, seem   doomed  to disappointment.   From many places the
same story  comes;    that   sewage
works arc a source of expense, and
that   the  sludge, fortunately very
small in amount, is of practically
very littlo or no value.   In London
the same attempt has been made to
profitably dispose of tho solid matter, but it haB had no success.   It
was collected and pressed into blocks
at a cost of 4s. 6d. a ton.   In this
form it could not be sold at even a
nominal price. Farmers would have
none of it. Pressing was abandoned,
and somo of it is now delivered in
the wet stato as compactly as possible  into tank  steamers.   In this
way Eome  three  thousand tons a
weok aro carried beyond tho Nore
and nro deposited in tho German
Ocean.   Tho cost is pub at G;l per
ton.   This is by no means all of tho
solid matter of the London sewage.
A great quantity still goes into tho
Thames, polluting its waters.   In
the case of a .vessol that wont down
in tlio rivor below London, some
years ago, it was related tliat the
death of somo of tho passengers was
caused by the poisonous exhalations
from the water rather than by simple    drowning.    Sludge,   from   a
chemical precipitation works in tbe
neighborhood of New York city, was,
it is   said, recently tried upon a
farm in comparison with ordinary
manure,    The   conclusion reached
was that if. was uf more barm than
good,   uiul   that   the laud without
manure did better thun thnt wliich
received sludge alone.    This, then,
ui.iy be said to bu the present aspect
of   the   sewago   problem;    Money
must be spent to get rid of it.   The
efforts of engineers should bu in the
direction of economical disinfection
Ulid deodorization; profit tiliould bo
out oE the question.   The problem
is ono of growing importance.    If
the facts above outlined are realized,
tlio problem will be moro effectually
grappled with thun whero the idea
of .sowago having a monetary value
prevails.

Sir William Gull says that when
fagged out by professional work he
recruits his strength by eating
raisins, and not by drinking wine or
brandy. Another good saying from
the same source : A pint of warm
water, taken on an empty stomach
in the morning, is tho safest and
surest of all remedies for habitual
constipation. It dissolves the fecal
matter and stimulates peristaltic
action, thereby giving u normal
action without pain. If tke tongue
is coated, squeeze a lemon into the
water and drink without swoetoning.
An old tradesman in Scotland
used to keep his accounts in a singular manner. Ho hung up two
boots, one on eaeh sido of the chimney, and in one ho put all tho

all receipts and vouchers for the
monoy he paid; at the end of tho
yonr, or whenever he wanted to
make up his accounts, he emptied
the boots, and by counting their
several and respective contents hss
was enabled with a littlo troublo to
mako a balance, which was doubtless as satisfactory to himself as if it
had beon done by "double ontry."—

That birds havo long beon guides to sailors and agriculturists every ono who knows
any tUinpr about popular weather prognostics is well aware. Not only liavo the flight
mul general action of birds been noted by
all civilized nations, says tbo Savannah
(Gn.) Nows, but among barbarous tribes in
this and other lands tho migratory bablts
tf tlto feathered tribo havo discounted prog-
wstics of Government signal bureatis.
Wind, rain ami other atmospheric changes
iro predicted by those who narrowly watch
ho migration of birds, and sailors in par*
luulnr, who are close observers of the
loavona above, tho utmosphere around them
tnd tho waters beneath thom, base tholr
irogiiostics on all tho peculiar phases of
and, wator and sky and tlio elements of lifo
lyliicli peoplo thom.
Among tho birds which servo to guide tho
tailon) to look out for nquulis, tbe Bailor ex
H-riH wind when Uio cormorants fly hnd*
vnnl. It' the gull soars to lofty heights
tud, circling round, utters shrill cries, a
term is approaching. If tho parrots whis-
lo on shipboard it will rain. If they dress
heir ftuthors and nro wakeful it will
itorni the next day. If tho petrels gather
inricir tho stern of a ship bad weather will
'oliow. Tho stormy petrol surely betokens
ttoriny weather, and no soonor do thoy
-father in numbers under tho wako of a ship
hnti sailors prepare to moot an Impending
.eiii'iost.
Hunters aro close obsorvors of tho habits
if birds, and many prognostics aro learned
rom tho vocabulary of an experienced
mntci', who will stay ln doors in the morn-
tig when un amateur hunter will bo tempted
mt by a cloar sky, to como back in tbo ruin,
>r will And thnt a modorato tomporaturo ln
,he morning is no suro precursor of a warm
lay. Among tho prognostics tbo .hunter
Iraws from birds a few will suffice;._
If birds In tho autumn grow tnmo, *
The winter will bo too cold for gamo.
Bats flying lato In tbo ovening indicate
'uit* woiither.but if they squeak Hying it will
•nIii on tho following day. A solitary, buz-
:ard ut a great altitude Indicates rain, but
f buzzards ily high togothor it will be fair
ivcatiter. If chickens orow beforo sundown
t will rain tho next day. If they run to
-hoi tor it will uot rain long. If thoy come
iff the roost at night rain will soon follow
Mo Zunl Indian hunters say that when
ohlmuoy swallows circle and coll thoy speak
if ruin, and Indians' predict a deep fall of
mow when grouse drum at night. Hunters
tnd fishermen havo a saying that "thoro
will bo no rain tlio day tho crane flies down
tho crook." One crow flying along is a
Bign of foul weather, but if crows fly in
pairs tho weather will Be lino. If crows
nitil-o much noiso and fly in a circle rain is
expected. If tho cuckoo halloos in low
land ib will raiu, If on high land it will be
fair. Domestic fowl look toward the sky
beforo ruin and goto roost In tho daytime.
If thoy stand on ono leg tho woather will
bo coiil. If birds arc fat and Block in February It is a sign of moro cold woather. If
geese walk oust and fly west it will be cold.
An old proverb says: "Whon tho hen
.rows, expect a storm within and without,'
uui hunters euy th.it tho direction tho loon
Hies in tho morning will bo tho direction of
.!:..*. wind tho next day. Owls hooting in tho
tliiytfmo indicates rain, but if at night tbo
weather will bo fair.
When thu poaoock loudly bawls **
Soon we' il havo both rain and squalls.
Pigeons return to their dovecotes unusu*
illy early bofore a rain. Tho habits of wild
joeso arowaiohed, and furnish many prog*
lustics. Tho following Is a popular verso;
Wild gooso, wildficoso, goln*; to tho sea,*..
Good weather It will bo; ■• *
Wild gooso, wild geese going to tho hill,
Tho weather it will iplll. *i   ■
In Kansas, when wild geese fly to the
louthetist iu tlio fall, tbo peoplo expect a
blii-sard.
There aro many prognostics of tho season
'h idi huvo lliolr origin fn tho migrations of
birds- ami In tho peculiar formation and ap*
lcuriiiico of tho gooso bono, whioh ia to-day
lookod upon by thousands of peoplo as a
mi re prognostic of whut tbo coming winter
will bu, und iu Kentucky, if tholssuoshould
Do raised whether tho Signal Sorvico Bureau or tho gooso bono should go, tho Ken*
ittckian would cling to tho gooso bono; in
Wi Henry Watterson, if ho hud to choose
ictween tho 8t.ur eyed goddess of reform
uui the gooso bono, would not daro to of-
'ond Kutituckluns by discarding tho pro-
ili.tt io bono, Tho peoplo of Kentuoky say
If tliu breast bono of a gooso is rod, or has
muuy red spots, expoot a cold and stormy
winter, but if only a few spots aro visible,
tho winter will bo mild, and thoy furnish
tho following roolpo so tbat lt may bo read
intelligently, whtch Instructions aro as follows t
. "To read tho winter of any year take tho
bro ist bone of a goose hatched during tho
preceding spring, Tho bone la translu-
coi. i, and lt will be found to be colored and
spotted. Tho dark color and heavy spots
Indicate cold. If tho spots are of light shade
aud truuspuront, wot woather, rain or snow
may bo looked for."  .
When wild geese and wild ducks movo
south tho weather will be cold, if north,
tho woothor will bo warm, and tbe birds
migrate south much earlier if the winter
will be oarly,  A severe winter follows if
■0 ws fly south, but if thoy fly north lt will
ho uu opon winter. No killing frost comes
when tho martius turn to their old haunts,

difficult to procure trousers of tho rtghr dimensions whon not made to order, '['ids
fuct 1ms given rise to no littlo aiinoyaiict* in
his life, and it has often uausod him duys of
hesitation beforo venturing forth lu i-nest
of a now pair to replace tho old onoa. Recently, howovor, hU trousors, which hud
seen long nnd constant sorvico, bogati to
display tlio affects of tho relentless tooth of
timo, and his good wifo chidod him upon ids
appiiaranoe. Htung by hor remarks UUI
,'liLur.toi-odovotedtotho sale of cloth-
and purchased for himsolf a ji'itr of
ti'yu-v'i'3. After assiduous search a ualr
was found of sufficient expanse of waistband to accommodate his vast rotundity,
but. unfortunately, tho longth was a good
six Inches fjrcatror than desired. It was tho
best, ilii-.r, ho could do, howovor, and, thinlc-
lia'vu hia wifo remedy tho defect, as
only a woman can, ho bore tlioin proudly
homo, The wrapper was removed and t'ta
purchase diflayed—Bill explaining tho
trouble] and Halting his wifo to alter thom
iu time for him to wear thom on tho following day. To thia proposition tho wifo for
somo reason demurred and flatly refused to
-empty with hia request. Boro at heart,
Uill went quietly to hod, leaving tho
trousers hanging by tho hoad of his
bed. Ho fell asleep and dreamed of tho
ridiculous figure ho would proseiit whin
ii-rayed in a pair of pantaloons of such extravagant longth, but In the midst of his
slumbers his mothor-in-law-a generous,
kindly soul—took compassion upon htfn,
uui, sllpplug into Llio room, removed ttio
jarmont. In a few moments, with the aid
af a pair of scissors and a needle and thread,
the surplus cloth bud beon removed. Quietly sho restored thom to their placo, thinking to surprise him whan he awoke, Scarcely had sho gono whon hor sister-in-law, who
had heard tho wifo's refusal, nnd who know
nothing of hor mother's action, wont quietly to Uto room, secured tho trousers, and
removed tho requisite six inches. Bill's
wifo, on going to bed, notlcod tho trousers
hanging in tho room, ond, feeling thut aho
had perhaps been a littlo arbitrary, took
them quietly down, and in another moment
another six Inches had boon taken from tholr
.ength. Tho work accomplished sho restored thom to tho hook and wont to bod.
Dill awoko betimes and donned his now
trousers. Ho aroso, glaucod at his nother
limbs, and a look of horror and despair
iropt ovor his face. Instead of being too
long, us he had anticipated, thoy sdiii'coly
fell below tho kuoo. Excitedly ho culled
his wifo and called her attention to lho
itrauga 'transformation. Inquiries wero
nstitutod iu tlio household, aud mutual explanations followed.

Among the queer people tn thia pnrt of
tho world, says a letter from Findlay, 0., id
Mrs. Aun Shaffer, familiarly known us
'Aunt Ann." Sho lives on a farm with
her husband ubout ten miles from this city.
is ovor sovonty-nlnc years old, and in full
ion of nil hor faculties. Her chief
peculiarity—for she has a numbor—Is that
aho can not sleep unless her husband beats
a drum in front of the house for nt least tin
hour; and summer and win tor, uight after
night, tho roll of old Jacob Shaffer's drum
can bo heard by tho neighbor:*, for milos
around as ho lends tho charge which lilt,
wife is muitmg into Urcumand. Ho has v
snare drum which ito mado for hiiiiseli
during tho'early years of tho war, and- ar
ho was Incapacitated from going into the
iiriiij by rcusou of physical disabilities, he
did what ho could for tho country by
acting as the drummer for a company of
'■aofiie guards" which drilled In his neigh
borhood.
Il was during this period that his wife
flrst developed hor straugu mania. Being
of a highly norvous temperament, and
much wrought up over tho war, sho could
uot sloop at night unless hor husband was
iwako. As bo waa not permitted to sleep
until his wifo had first journeyed into tlie
realms of slumber, ho put in the time proa.
tichig-uponiiisdrum, In this way "Aunt
linn" grew into tho habit of falling asloap
lo the systematic music of tho drum, and
soon it. became a necessity.    Sho could not
loop without its solacing sound, and thus
ttio years havo gone on, every night tho
sumo. About eight o'clock Undo Jacob gets
out his drum nnd goes to work as If hi,
wei'iloading a chargo on a battory, and
then gradually drops into slower and men1
soothing muslo until at tho cud of un hour's
steady boating iio feels convinced thnt his

SAVED  BY A   BATH.
Tin* ElUency of Cold Wator in Casus ol
Typhoid I'D vor.
The efficacy of tho cold bath in typhoid
fovcr is now admitted, and the doctors ure
ilalmlng it as u discovery of science. Fevor
patients would have discovered it long ago
if they had boen permitted to treat themselves, A dear friend of a Washington
Capital correspondent discovered il for him ■
jolf when n prisoner of war in East Ten ;-ra
ico. Ho hud boon captured and was on hin
way further South when taken with !,v
phoid fevor. His guard found bim cjeUrlouf*
when waking him to continue his march,
l'hoy consigned him to tho cnro of a fnrm
'a wife who looked kindly upon the suffering prisoner. Sho gnvo him a spare
room and religiously shut tho windows los"
ho should havo ti draft of Heaven's air nnd
dlo; aho denied him the cool water of tho
woll, becauso tho country dootor said so.
Tho patient lay atill Iu tho midnight
hours and tho kind watcher by his
ocd slept tho sloop of tho riglttootis.
Awakouing suddenly tho nurso found
tho slok bed empty, Tho patient
and gone, ltutining out to tho front yard
iho heard a spluttering noise, which r.ho
traced to tho deep, cold mountain well. Getting a eandlo sho lowered -it by a string to
the water's brink, and there stood llie
Vunkoa soldier, up to his chhi ia lho. gold
wator. Uo had escaped while slio slept uutl
hud sought for coolness und found it. It
took somo time to rouao tho sleepy negro
man, wbo wus furra hand and general factotum. Aftor an hour or moro tiio suldtor
was rescued. Uo was hoisted up, ond, for
oho lirst timo in many hours, ho wus coit-
■clous. Ho was wrapped in blankets amid
■iiuiiy forebodiugs of death. Sweet sloop
■iisucd, and the next morning appetite vo-
turuod. A fow days and strength returned.
Tiio mun was curod by Nature's remedy. Ho
novor saw n Confcdoruto prison, for tlto

Bryan 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 ali 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 Biyan 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, "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.

ono ot the meat sovcro experienced
here for some timo. About 1 o'elook
iu tlio morning the ruin fall assumed
tho character of a deluge, and more
than uno roof in tlto city proved unable (o keep out thu wntor. The wind
developed Intoa strong galo nnd sent
tho haves from the trees in nil directions. Tlie fence on Agnes street behind St, Louis college, succumbed to
thu blast with u resounding crash. A
number of other fences nnd propoity
wore blown down. Fruit, which was

language of tho "great unwashed," to
"take a tumblo to itself." Tho river
pn sooted a wild nnd troubled aspect,

morning the prospects for tho exhibition looked decidedly blue, but tho
woather*wise say the late galo has exhausted all the ready rain in tho coffers of his majesty J. PluviiiB.

A RACE
Xol   liowa  ou   Ibe  IVlchruli-m   Vto-
The well known buck skin o lt, often
seen on Columbia street, provided con*
sidcrublo fun and sport this morning,
and rather astonished the citizens by
an involuntary exhibition of speed. In
a moment of absent mindednois this
interesting equine juvenile wandered
away from hia maternal ancestor, who
earns a livelihood by hauling u cart
around town under tho supervision of
a Chinaman. When the colt awoke
frotn his brown study with a ittui't, and
beheld his respected dam turning a
corner several blocks away, ho guvo a
snort of dismay and started after her
at n Derby gallop, down the middle of
tho stroet, throwing the mud far and
noar. Soveral well known sports woro
observed noting tho colt's gait and
pace, and no doubt, should lie bo a
candidate for local etikes ho will bo a
favorito.
THE WIND UP
Of (lie Celebration('ouiuiUlcfrt' Etuslucss.
Saturday ovening was chiefly remarkable for mud, nioit-turu and
misery, and was exactly the kind of a
■.light tho youug novelist would choose
to describu iu tho opening chapter of
somo terrific tale of murder nod rnpino
in yellow paper covers nud twenty
cents u copy. It was a bad uight to
be out nnd this opinion wna shared by
the members of tho different committees on tho celebration, and small
blaino to them, cither. His worship
culled tho rather meagre attendance to
order about 8:30, and the secretary,
having read tho minutes of tho last
meeting, whieh wero approved^ look
up communications from tho captain
and officers of 1I.M.S. Champion
thanking tho mayor aud aldermen for
tho invitation to tho grand ball and
celebration, and expressing rogret nt
thoir inability to accept tlie same. From
the captain and oflicers of H.M.S.

thanks the city's invitation to
tho celebration and hall. From
the Vancouver Odd Fellows, regretting that they would ho unable to participate in thu procession.
REPORTS.
Tho reception committeo reported
arrangements noarly completed aud
everything going on well. Adopted.
The printing committee had no. roport
to nuke, hut tho escretitry stated that
the rovised programmo would be issued on Monday, and that the committee badges woro finished and would
also bo served nut Monday.
Thu procession committee reported
everything shaping well for success.
The boating committee, through Iub
worship, report-id satisfactory progress.
Tho namo of Mr, W. H. Vianen wub
on motion placed upon tho committeo
list, his great experience as a fisherman making him a vnluable acquisition.
The nports committee mado a favorable r. port.
The secret ui y snid tho junior cricket-
era were anxious for a match and had
requested a print} bf $50. Ilia worship
said thu boys would bo mighty glad to
dike li ilf of $50 if they could get it.
Mr. Moresby said ho did not believe
in giving money to young boys and
proposed thnt a complete cricketing
equipment be offered thom as a prjze.
This proposition wna adopted1." The
match will tako place at I) o'clock ou
the morning of the first day.
The music and diuicing committee
reported that threo bauds would bo in
attendance and everything had boon
arranged for their reception and entertainment. The ball, in particular,
is expected to bo a groat success,
Tho horse racing committee, through
Mr. Wise, reported everything progressing satisfactorily.
Tho excursion committee had nothing to roport oxcept that all- arrange*
menls had been favorably undo. ' Mr.
Anderson will try to induce the company to run special trains, one to
leavo Vancouver at 8 n.m. and another
from Westminster at 11 p.m. during
the throo duys of tho exhibition. If
successful in procuring this additional
sorvico the fact will bo advertised as
thoroughly us possible.
Tho decoration committee reported
all matters going on steadily.
The collection committee made a
favorable report. Most of the collection work is dono and $3,007 are
now in hand. The committee expected tu complete its labors on   Monday.
The fireworks committee reported
that as thu mnn iu charge of the pyro-
techny was nn export there could bu
im doubt of thu display being successful. Mr. Gilley haB generously offered
the use of his scows to tho committeo
for nothing. Torches will be supplied
to all persons wishing to illuminate
their boats. Full publicity ia to be
given thu fireworks display, and thero
is no donbt that it will be tho finest
over seen in the province. Tho im-
[mit.uce uf this part of thu show is ap*
prucfated aud no effort will bo spared
to make it a grand and mcmorablo success.
The firemen's committee roported
everything satisfactory. Victoria, as
usual, cither can't or won't come, and
Vancouver is prevented attending by
seme other reason.
Tho billeting committee reported
that there will bo plenty of room and
to spare for everybody who likes to
come. His worship gavo an amusing
sketch of his adventures nt the Chilliwack fair, nnd the somewhat Rcanty
sleeping Accomodation in that city. All
the Eocieties in town will look after
their own visiting brethren, und tha
hotels were "laying theinsolves out"
for big gamo. The tattered remnants
shipped here from Victoria under tho
fur fetched namo of tlnga or bunting,
wero accompanied by n bill which evidently charged for every holo and rent
(nud their unmo wus legion)in tho said
dilapidated relics of u departed ago;
the amount of thu flags was 200 and
the amount of the bill 9150, fur throe
days. This line, unadulterated sample
of Victoria modesty, accompanied by
the "lings" (si'1) was sent bnck without
nn instant's unnecessary delay; they
would hnvo been sent by telegraph if
practicable, but tho next boat answered
the purpose tolerably woll. Tho committee will hnvo tho expense of transit
both ways.
His worship snid they could get
along with flannel ut a pinch.
Tbo committees require the following wherewithal to enrry out thoir respective work; Athletic, $750; pro-
cession, @400; music, @400; fireworks,
$450; decoration, 8500; horse racing,
8500; boating, $400; huae-reel, 9250;
printing, $300; sundries, 8500.
The meeting adjourned for the last
time, as this was the wind up of the
committees' work before the exhibition.

That having heard with pleasure the
address of the Hon. Thoodoro Davio,
attorney-general, wo dosiro to express
our cordial approval of the general
policy of the government iu its management of tilfoir/t, but moro especially would we emphasize our hearty
appreciation of tho impulse given by it
to the development of the quartz mining interests of the district by the erection of reduction works and otherwise.
Thnt wo look forward with hopoful-
nosa to tho benefits to bo dorivod from
tho continued efficient operation of
theso works, and wo trust that no rons*
unable expousu or effort will bo spared
by the government to koop them in all
respects thoroughly equipped for tho
treutiuei'tnf ores by the moat scientific
modern methods and appliances.
That wo most enthusiastically approve the policy of tho government
with regard to tho Wostern Contral
Unilwuy, the building of which wo believe will bo of inestimable benefit to
tho wholo Cariboo district, and to *tho
province ut large.
That wo believe tho main line of said
railway may and ought to pass through
tho center of tha Cariboo mining distinct, touching at or near Qiiesnelle
and Barkerville on its way to tho Yellow Head Pas?, nnd thenco eastward
to becomo pnrt of a new transcontinental railway.
