PARNELL THE HERO
J. R. Russell,.nt one time a school
teachor, who was living in Brantford, Ont., committed suicide recently, without any apparent cause,
by shooting himself in the head.
Ho left a letter for hia wife and
children, telling them to meet him
in the "world where trouble is nover
known."
An automatic magazine rifle, invented by R. Dewhursfc, and H. A.
Pitcher, has been brought out at
Neillsville, Wisconsin, where it is
mukingquite a sensation. Like the
Maxim gun, the cartridges may be
fired singly, by pulling tho trigger
for eaeh desired discharge, or the
gun may bo set so as to fire itself off,
with great rapidity, until all the
cartridges in the magazine aro used.
"Come, balmy spring, ethereal
mildness, come 1" So will the
annual spring poot soon quote from
his manuscript as lie hands it to the
editor. And the thud of the verses
in the waste basket will find a
ghastly echo in the despairing wail
of terror from their author ns he
leaves tho sanctum via a third
storey window, impi-llcd by tho
vigorous kick of the hoof of tho
fighting reporter.
If young Bill III, Emperor of
Germany and General Blowhard of
tho whole universe, would know
his exact intrinsic position in tho
scale of human greatness, let him
como to America and call a Toronto
policeman a liar. After having been
jerked through his shape and having
his head used successfully us a
latch key to a cell in the central
station, he will return to the fatherland, give up the reading of pernicious literature on war tactics and
start a hennery.—Ex,
"Is spanking n failure V asks the
Philadelphia Times in a solemn
editorial. It is a burning question
and one not to be answered hastily.
Shall the father of the future spare
lhe rod 1 is an enquiry begotten by
progressive civilization. Nothing
can be said in regard to the matter.
ut present which will end discussion.
But it is more than probable that if
posterity shall declare in favour of
spanking as an institution, the
ham], the hair-brush, and the slipper will bo superseded hy soma
nickel-in-lhe-slot automatic chastising machine into which a bad boy
will be dropped and come out disciplined, The "good old ways" are
fast going out of fashion.
Nevada stage-men are getting the
snow shoes for their horses in condition for use ns they may be needed
almost any timo within the next
few weeks. They are used every
winter on the Graniteville ridge,
and also on the Mountain House
section of the Downieville and
Nevada city road, It would be
impossible for horses to travel ovor
tho deep snows without their aid.
Ono that is accustomed to wearing
them will travel four or five miles nn
hour where it would be impossible
to go that distanco in a week without them. Tlie shoes aro made of
thin steel plate, about nine by
eleven inches, fastened on the hoofs
with clamps. The horses are shod
with long heel calks, which go
through the showshoes and prevent
their slipping when going up and
downhill,
Dr, Tanner announces that he
proposes to have himself buried
alive, and, whon he is disinterred
after four weeks, to resume consciousness. This is rather a ghastly
experiment. One serious objection
to it is that the people whom the
world would miss least will be the
last to imitate it. His idea seems
to ho to attract attention to the
dangers of being buried alive, which
he thinks are great. In this he is
doubtless mistaken. The common
notions upon this subject ure greatly
exaggerated. In tho town of Mannheim, in Germany, it has been the
custom to provide against it by keep-
ing all dead bodies a certain time in
a house with a bell so arranged that
the-slightest motion of the supposed
dead body would give a loud signal.
During forty-fivo years that this
system was oontinued, the bell was
ung only once, and then the ring
ing was not duo to resuscitation.
The doctors who waited during all
those forty-fivo yoars for the'bell to
ring must have grown almost as
tired as Dr. Tanner will if ho gets
into his grave and expects to get
out of it again.

TARNELL STOCK AWAY VV.
London, March. 5.-~The revulsion
of political feeling iu favor of Mr. Parnell iu view of the cullapso of the
caso of the Times is evidenced by Iho
fact that a movement is on font to
elect tho Irish lender as ait honorary
life member of lhe National Liberal
Club. It is understood that tho pro*
posal has been received favorably by
tho members of that organization and
the election of Mr. Parnell is contingent only on his willingness to accept.
the honor.
EDMUND YATES1 CABLE.
London, March, 6.—Drawing rooii?
day was as cold nnd wretched as uny
oue could imagino and the heroism of
the ladies who eat for hours in their
carriages along tho Mall was perfectly
extraordinary. Tho royal party all
looked very black in their deep mourning. The Empress Frederick, who
had held her small court tho day before, was not present. The Princess
of Wales looked well and the Princess
Christian ill and tired. The queen
stood and sat at intervals, but only
stayed an hour. There wero a great
many presentations and many very
pretty girls. The interest of the Beau
monde at the first appearance of Mrs.
Chamberlain was extreme and sho
quite justified the expectations. She
was beautifully dressed in blue, which
excited somo discuesion among the
ladies, whito being generally worn at
wodding presentations; but the toilet
was very beautiful. She was escorted
by Mr, Chamberlain, who evidently
appreciated the unmistakable admiration she excited. He looked in a much
milder and more becoming nicod than
those who havo known him well ever
seen him in before.
THE PAltNBLL AFFAIR.
Tho discomfiture of the Times has
not dispirited tho Unionist party, imi*
hnve they attempted to tlimw iff any
of the responsibility with regard to
thu commission. But for the pressure
put by the Unionists, thu government
never « ould haveconsentod to tho steps
which has brought them nothing but
disfavor. Political memories are
short. The government is vet in the
prime uf Hie, but wero a general election imminent it would be defeated.
Mr. Chamberlain very loudly avows
his innocence, or that ho was in any
way responsible for the appointment
of the conimiiBion, but I know on unimpeachable authority that it was his
representations and influence alouo
lhat brought it about. Lord Itnu-
dulph Churchill, at the time, wrote nnd
warned Lord Salisbury and the cabinet
of the gravity and danger of tho stop
they wero taking and urged them to
consider the decision bofore it was too
late.
Gladstone's hopes.
Although Mr. Gladstone only spnke
of one or two years hence as the possible date of an appeal to the country
in his speech, ho entertains n t-trong
belief iu his return to power being almost imminent. One day he was discovered iu a well known London
drawing-room deep in tho pages of the
Morning Post, a paper which is carefully tabooed in James street, while
waiting for the mistress of tho houso.
On putting the paper down he recognized his fellow caller and said cheerily : "I must come in ; Lord Salisbury nnd tho Times will full together."
THE DUCAL   ENGAGEMENT.
Tho Duke of Portland's engagement
to Miss Dallas Park haa been a (surprise. No ono except tho select circle
who were in tho secret hud any idea
that it was going to take place. Miss
Park has boen going out in society
under tho wing of her sunt, Mrs. Eric
Harrington. The story goes that the
duke first suw her at the railway station in Scotland, and admired her
yery much, not knowing who she was.
On returning to London he soon nfter
met her nt the house of a friend who
hns largely assisted in bringing about
tho marriage. Tbe duke is the greatest "party" in Englind, but quite
ap.irt from that fact is ono of tho best
and kindest of men. He makes good
use of his great riches mid position.
Hu has lint inherited all tho property
uf thu late duke, the Murylebnno
estate, which has the most valuable
portion, being left by him to his sis*
tors,Lady Kssingtiui nnd Lady Howard
De Warden. Ho has a very large --state
in Caithness nnd Ayrshire, besides tho
largo properties ho owns in England.
His rent roll is a very large one, but
he has more calls on it than perhaps
almost anyone of like position. Wul-
beck Abbey is said to he costing £30,-
000 a year to keep up.
STILL  ANOTHER  HAkTYR,
Dublin, Mar. 5.—Kev. Mr. Stephens, uf Fulcarr.igh, n priest, was sentenced to six months' imprisonment
under the Crimes Act to-day,
STILL L1NUEB1NU ON.
London, Mar. 5.—The Parnell commission re-assembled this morning.
Sir Richard Webster, attorney-general,
narrated the facts already made knuwn
about Pigott's communication to Solicitor Soames' office, from Madrid.
The attorney-general said he now desired to take up that part of tho quo
whioh related to the TnVt World.
Presiding Justice Hannen docided that
tho fact that the Irish World raided
money fur tho Irish cause did not mako
the recipient uf the money responsible
for the paper's articles, but afforded nn
important link of evidence regarding
tho distribution of newspapers inciting
to outrage. Evidence wai submitted
which proved that between tho years
1880 and 1881 copies of tho Iris!.
World woro sent uut, cither directly
nr indirectly, from tlio offices of tho
National League in Dublin, and were
found in posseision of ths league oiti -
cers. Evidence on this point was
thonflforo adiniosible. Upon application from Parnellite counsel, the oourt
gave permission to John Dillon to go
to Australia. Attorney-General Webster then resumed his reading from tho
Irish World articles, in reference to
Michael Davitt; also a speech of Dillon's, urging tho destruction of polico
engaged in the protection of landlords.
COMMENTS ON HAlUlLSON'fi ADDRESS.
London, Mar. 5.—Tho Tinm professes to find indications of Mr. Blaine's
foreign policy in tho President's ad-
dess, but dues not think tho financial
views expressed aro vory clear.
The Standard regards the address as
disappointing and evidently not written to pleuBe Anglo-Saxons on this sido
of the Atlantic.
The Telegraph finds nothing alarming in thu address, but on the contrary
a disposition on the part of the administration to deal fairly with foreign
nations.
Tho Chronicle remarks thut there is
nothing iu it lo enlist the sympathies
of Englishmen.
Tho Pout referring to President Harrison's inaugural addrens, comments on
the fiUi'ticu of bombast, which gives
evidence of another element of universal concord.
The Daily -Sun say* the address is
Temarkabl(*^or U-t .numerous allusions
to foreign matters, and thinks tho
world may havo to reckon with a new
naval power. -
TUB  DOMINION PARLIAMENT;
Ottawa, March 4.—Sir J. S. D.

to companies which do not come under
tho clauses affecting insolvent companies.
Sir Hector Langovin movod in the
house to-day tlmt on and after Thursday next the government business

Tho bill to iucoporate the Victoria,

waB passed.
Hon. E. Dewdney in reply to Mr.
Charlton Baid that negotations are in
progress between Canada and the United States for a survey to determine
the boundary lino between British Columbia and the United States.
Hon. Mr. Bowell in roply to Sir.
Richard Cartwright said that tlio sum
expended in plant and other purposes
for the Printers bureau from last July
to February 1st was §82,984, the expenditure on the building so far being
$129,940. In reply to Mr. David
Mills Mr. Howell stated that articles
passing through United States territory in bond for shipment to Great
Britain are included in the statements

PARTICULARS ABOUT PIGOTT'S END.
London, March 2.-—Pigott's telegram tu Mr. Shannon reads ; "Please
ask Mr. S. to send what waspromfcsd,
Writo : Roland Ponsanby, Hotel Dls
Ambassadeui-s, Madrid." Soames informed the police directly upon receiving it, and in order to detain
Pigott in Madrid, the clerks in the
solicitor's office wired him that Shannon had gone to Irolaud aud whon ho
returned tho mouoy uskod for would
be sent by telegraph. Pigott's telegram to Shannon, solicitor for tho
Times, asking that gentleman to fulfil
his promise to send money, excites a
great deal of comment. It is quite
evident that Pigott and Shannon had
an understanding at the last moment,
previous to tho perjurer's flight, and
the suspicion is growing that whatever, agreement thero wns between
them was made by Shannon upon ihe
authority of his clients, Shannon is
iu Dublin and may possibly uscuj o
further examination, particularly as
tho line oi questioning would lead directly to ascertaining whether ho had
an interview with Pigott during lhe
time intervening between tho lattcr's
last appearance before tho commission
and his depirture from England. It
is believed Pigott's body will bo buried
at Madrid in order to prevent the inevitable hostilo demonstration which
his interment at Dublin would provoke. Tho papers found on his poison
and in his handbag will be delivered
up to the English polico, and by them
held subject to the order of tho commission.
TUB POltpER DIED REPENTANT.
Mamud, March 2.—Upon the person of Pigott was found a letter addressed to Labouchcre. The letter
stated : "The first bunch uf letters I
sold to the Times were genuine ; of
the second soveral were forged, including two of Parnell's and ono each of
Davitt's, O'Kelly's and Egan's. I am
deeply sorry for all 1 have injured and
nm ready to place nt their disposal all
the means in my power to remedy the
wrong I havo dono. All I said was
false, but everything written under
onth is true." Among tho documents
found was a license authorizing Pigott
to carry a pistol, a letter dated Dublin,
and a cheque book on the Ulster bank.
Pigott tried to negotiate a cheque at
the bank hore, but payment was refused becauso of the absence of proof
of his identity. Tho note-book found
in hb pocket was filled with interesting
jottings. His body was taken to the
Southern mcrguo, whero it lies with
two other corpses. His beard and
olothing were stiffened with dried
blood when it was removed to the
morque, as was also a scapula tor which
he woro at his breast. The bullet
entered his mouth and camo out at the
back of his head near tho right side of
hts nock. A photograph of the features
will bo taken to morrow. Ths body
will bo buried nfter the British dcU-o-
tivo has identified it on Tuesday. The
British embassy has ordered that ho
receive a decent burial.

We are glad lo be able to announce that action lias at last been
commenced in the council in the
matter of proposed water work, for
the city. By the report elsewhere
it will be seen that Alderman Scoullar has given notice of motion that
at the next meeting of the council
he will introduce a bylaw giving
the council authority to issue $200,-
000 worth of water debentures for
the purpose of building and completing s syatem of water -yorks for
the city. The ratepayer that does
not dive below the surface of this
water proposition, paradoxical as it
may seem, will probably become
asphyxiated with amazement at its
apparent audacity. We are paying
interest on 4150,000 for the railway, some will say, and now you are
going to swamp us utterly with
$200,000 of water debentures. Upon examination, however, it will be
found that the ratepayers will not
have to pay one cent for interest or
sinking fund on these water debentures. Not only so, but a small,
and increasing, revenue will accrue
to tbe city from the scheme. The
explanation is simple. The debentures will pay for themselves, and
something to boot. The general
details of the scheme are these:
The city purchases the Coquitlam
Water works franchise from the
company at this stage and constructs
the necessary works itself, To do
this will require about $185,000, or
a round sum of $200,000, which it
is proposed to borrow on water debentures. The city ean obtain the
money for this purpose (water debentures being at a premium) for 5
per cent, annual interest, for thirty
years. The estimated revenue from
the water works tbe first year is
$20,000. It will thus be seen that
the revenue will more than meet the
interest and sinking fund from the
start, leaving the city "something
in pocket" evory year, besides having
full ownership and control of the
works. This scheme must commend
itself to the ratepayers even more
than one formulated on tbe basis of
tbe proposition of tbe Coquitlam
Water Works Company cited recently. According to that proposition (which was reasonable and fair
in its way), the city was to guarantee at least $2,000 a year to the
company in consideration of the
water being supplied, and take over
the water works, preferably, at the
end of ten years, which would mean
that the city, to obtain the ownership of the works, would pay $2,000
a year for ten years (it would really
have been $3,000, when water for
flushing sewers was supplied), and
at the expiration of the ten years-
reimburse the company for all its
outlay, with 10 per cent, added. In
connection with the necessary outlay
for the construction of the works,
there is a point worth noticing. Tho
city can borrow money for this pur'
pose at 5 per cent. The company
would have to pay 6. Therefore,
as by the original proposition the
city would have to reimburse the
company for its outlay, with the
addition of 10 per cent, on that outlay, by purchasing the franchise
now, and borrowing money to construct the works at 1 per cent
cheaper than the company could, the
city saves that 1 per cent, for ten
years on the amount so borrowed, as
well as 10 per cent on that amount
of interest. This must be plain, for
the reason that this extra I per cent,
would constitute part  of the com-
Einy's outlay, which the city would
ave to reimburse, with the addition
of 10 per cent. We are convinced
that when the ratepayers have examined this thing for themselves, the
scheme will commend itself to their
I approval and have their hearty cooperation.
We have received a copy of the
seventeenth annual report of the superintendent of education on the
condition and progress of the publio
schools of the province, for the
school year ending June 30, 1888.
This report was tabled in the local
house on Thursday last by the hon.
provincial secretary, and speaks, on
the whole, favorably and hopefully
for the cause of education throughout the province, While eaoh succeeding year shows an increase in
the number of school) and in the enrolment of pupils, the report points
out that in no preceding year has
the general efficiency of the schools
been more apparent A comparison
ot the statiitios, according to the report, proves that the registration
and average. daily .attendance of
pupils hai oonsiderabljr more than
doubled daring the put live years.
Thia is gratifying as ah indication
merely of s^neral progress and in-
icreaae in population; but the super,
lintendent adds, thai the improved
Jooodltion of the schools in order,
|disolpllne, and management has been
ally gratifying. The report dees tbat it is very noticeable and
Worthy of mention that a greater
■mount of more thorough work is
bow being accomplished in both
rreded and common schools in lets
ita* than in former years, and that
to teachers an gradually seeing the
necessity of giving more attention
to instruction in practical knowledge
and training. If these ends are
actually being attained, the fact is
niatter for congratulation, as practical knowlodge and training is undoubtedly lacking in a great deal of.
the education of the present day.
The total number of pupils enrolled
during the yoar, according to the report, was 0,372, an increase of 1,027,
and the average dally attendance is
given at 3,093 and a fraction, an
increase of 220 less the two-hundredth part of a pupil. It is admitted that the percentage of increase of average daily attendance
has not kept pace with that of tbe
enrolment, but this is accounted for
by the unusually severe weather of
a part of tbe winter season (last
winter presumably) as well as by the
fact tbat contagious diseases especially to children prevailed in nearly
all of the districts during the year.
After making due allowance for
these hindrances, however, the . report states that there are school districts (without specifying them),
possessing every necessary educational facility, in which there is
shown a marked indifference as to
the record of the schools in regard
to the average daily attendance
maintained. It is pointed out that
this may be the fault of parents or
teachers, and recommendations are
made to suit either case : if of the
former, a change in tbe rules governing daily attendance of pupils
would be a corrective, says the report; if of the latter, it is the duty of
the trustees to make a change witii
a view to effecting improvement in
this direction. Particular stress is
laid in the report on the desirability
and necessity of securing the highest
possible average daily attendance,
and it is shown that it is the duty
of teaoher, trustees, and parents to
work together for this end. In order to judge whether the annual report of attendance at their school
bos been at all satisfactory, the superintendent states that trustees
have only to compare tho average
daily attendance with the number
enrolled: if the former is less than
half of the latter, the pupils bave
not attended half of the number of
school days, or in other words, for
every two dollars expended for the
maintenance of the school, advantage has been taken by each pupil of
the privileges afforded to the amount
of less than one dollar. The expenditure for education proper was
as follows: Teachers' salaries, $88,-
267.42; incidental expenses, including rent, $7,090.56; education oflice,
$4,524.06; total, $99,902.04. This
amount shows an excess over the
cost for the previous yenr of $11 ,-
380.96. The outlay for the salaries
of teachers and incidental expenses
of the different kinds of schools wns
as follows: High schools, $5,370;
graded schools, $31,572.93; common
schools, $58,435.05; total, $95,377.-
98. Of tbe amount voted in the
estimates for the past year, $1,792.96
were unexpended. The expenditure
by the lands and works department
for the construction of school bouses,
furniture, repairs, and improvements, were as follows: School
houses, $10,841.99; furniture, re*
pairs, etc., $2,935.33; total, $13,-
777.32. This outlay, compared with
that of the previous year, shows a
decrease of $3,928.24. The total
expenditure for all purposes of education for the year was as follows:
Education proper, $90,902 04; lands
and works department, $13,777.32;
total, $113,679.36. This amount
compared with that for the previous
year shows an increase of $7,452.72.
The total number of schools in operation during the year was 99, as
follows: High schools, 3; graded
schools, 9; ward schools, 4; common
schools, 83. These were under the
charge of 124 teachers and 4 monitors. Schools were established during the year in the following districts: Donald, English, Kensington, Mountain, Rocky Point, Tolmie,
Victoria (ward). In addition to
these, schools were maintained during the entire year at Ashcroft and
Spence's Bridge. At the present
time schools are in operation in the
following newly-oreated districts:
Enderby, Grand Prairie, Haney,
Sapperton, and Victoria West.
School houses wore erected nnd additions made to school buildings during the year in the following districts: Kensington, Mountain, Tolmie, York, Viotoria (ward), Centreville, Kamloops, Nanaimo, and Shu-
swap Prairie (tho four last being
additions), The average daily attendance for the year at the public
schools in the four principal oities of
the province, giving them alphabetically, as in the report, was as follows: Nanaimo, 246.35; New Westminster, 262.27; Vancouver, 338.19f
Viotoria, 917.39. The number of
teachers constituting the provincial
teachers' institute is given as 137.
The report embraces an interesting
report from the inspector of schools,
the minutes of the annual meeting of
tbe provincial teachers' institute, at
Victoria, and much other valuable
information in statistics and appendices,

in tho subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his

though i.lij postmaster was my guaiant.ee
thoy were shy of inc. Common 1iospilalli.y

know thoy felt relieved when wo .took our
departure.
As soon as wo reached the shelter of the
woods I sent Uio postmaster across to the
horso und buggy and secreted jhyselt to
seo what would happen. Iu about twenty
minutes Roberts appeared at thoi1* door,
carefully looked about him, and then went
to tho barn, which stood about ten rods
from tho house, and hung an old sheepskin
on a peg near the door. This door faced a
highway which was so littlo used that It
scarcely showed a wheel track. It struck
me tlmt ho had hung up tho sheepskin oi
a signal, and, though ho returned to. tho
house und every thing was vory quiet, I
waited for two hours. Then I wns rewarded by seeing a man ride past on horseback.
Ue was evidently familiar with tho signal,
for ho rodo hts horso through a gateway
to tho barn, and Roberts at onco went out
to meet hlm. I saw them have two or
llirco packages between thom, and thoy
kept up a conversation which lasted half an
hour. Then the sheepskin was taken
down, the stranger rode away, and Roberts
return ed to tho houso with a package in his
hand.
As so.m as I rejoined the postmaster I
thought it best to tako him Into myconil-
deuce, lie was dumfouuded at my suspicions, but yet, in tho now light of things,
could I'RColleet many little thlngfl going to
show that I might bo correct. Mrs. Roberts
did not come to town that evening, as I anticipated, but next forenoon she arrived and
posted twenty one lotters, each one of thom
directed to a soldier. Thirteen of them
were directed to members of one Wisconsin
itueut, and each and every one no doubt
contained counterfeits.

Tlio tooth thut means to come out Imo
L-onqucrcd all men and all women, remarks
tho Pittsburgh Chronicle. It, has been
ioothed and coaxod. It bus bceu lield,uc,iir
tires until the cheek abutting il waf. nehrly
ponsCcd. Ithnaboonuhloroformod. It hus,
bflen fed on csioiioo'of junlppv and esbouce
of peppermint and OflBeiicO of cloves. Delias,
been Oiled, lis nerve has been killed; It«
mtscvabld owner has been Immured from
freslinir liko a prisoner. i
This tooth s.-miotimcR sleeps but it never
forgets. It Is most treacherous when It
teems tranquil. It ulcerates at tho roots
whon its possessor is about to indite a poem,
tako a journey or got married, It longs for
release und hungers for the forceps. It may
worn to comprnmiso, but it merely bides its
time. Ita favorite recreation hour is Just
after midnight, when druggists and dentists
have retired. If the ground is covered with
snow nud the Winds piercing, it is fairly
diabolical with activity.
There Is no uso In contesting Issues - with,
this mullntms nud remorseless molar.
Fight rheumailsiuif you will, but throw \\\\
the spougo in this altercation. You have,
mistered your month und ruined your digestive powers mul -iminvled with your family
and friends long enough.
Tell the dentist to pull your hood oft and
the accursed grinder with it, and live on
soup tf need be, but have peace onoo more.
Jerk tbo abomination out and it will bo content, tho everlasting plaguooh it. *

Tho Methodist Missionary Anniversary meeting which took place in the
Moihodist church last evening was uf
a very interesting nature. \ large
number of people were present, which
speaks well fur tho interest taken by
that branch ot the Chi-istam church in
m ud works. After a short service of
Gospel sung by the whole assemblage,
and prayers by the Rev. Mr. Calvert,
Mr. James Cunningham, un being
called to the chair, gave a short but
very appropriate and interesting ud-
dress,   The choir then gavo an anthem,
Wake tho Song of Jubilee." after
which tho Rev. Mr. Whito read the
missionary report. It shuwed the a-
mount raised by the whole church
during the past year to bo §210,000, uf
which Iho New Westminster congregation contributed $345. A
quartette by Mrs. Robson, Mrs.
Major, and Messrs. DeBeck and Pearson, in which tho former lady took the
leading part, waa a muat pleasing feature of tho proccediugj, The Rev.
Mr. Hull, secretary of tho conference
and the Rev. ,1 nines Culvert addressed
the meeting at considerable length on
the importance of niisBiohnry work
and tho duty of Christians in assisting
to enlighten the heathen of thoir race.
At the conclusion of the services a collection and subs riplioii waa taken up
for tho purpose of aiding missionary
work, which, together with that uf

.In Oiitrujti-'ius lltiiiiliiig.
Many of our citizens will remember
tho family of Scutch Gipsies who
camped ou the reserve opposito tho
school givunds for a few weeks. 'The
melodious strains uf tho pibroch,
manipulated by the head of the family,
sounded sweet in many a Highland-
man's ear, and evory Scottish heart
sympathized witli tho unfortunate {'.)
player and his family. Tho mother
and children sold lace, which thoy
claimed to bo thoir onu handiwork,
and made considerable money thereby.
At othor times thoy begged fur fuod
and clothing aud wero seldom refused.
When the lace trado played uut they
took to soiling silver spoons and did a
flourishing business. The police, however, stepped in and ordered them lo
tako out a trades license or stop Belling. Tho mnn pleaded poverty, but
Chief Pcarco was adamant and insisted
un his either paying tho lie-.nee or
stopping the sale nf his goods. As the
city hud been prelty well canvassed
the man uf the pibroch decided to fold
his tent and depart. This ho did,
making Vancouver his next stopping
place. On Saturday niglit ho returned
tc WeBtmlnster on business matters
nud applied to some uf the hotels fcr
lodging but was refused in every ease.
Chief Pearce met him wandering about
tho streets at 2 o'clock on Sunday
morning and took him ti the lock-up
for shelter. When tho usual search
was made ttie chief was thunderstruck
to find a wallet on tho Scutchuian's
person which contained a trill.- over
52,000 in guld and notes. Papers
were also found which proved that the
lace, instead nf being made by tho
family, waa purchased frum a whole-
Bale dry-goods house in Toronto, These
facts are published for the purpose of
exposing au outrageous humbug, and
that tho preaa of Victoria, where Iho
family now i*, may warn ita readers
against bestowing charity ou such unworthy people.
