NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A man at Dalton, Oa., is doing
quite a business in walking canes
which he cuts from the Ohickamauga
battlefield. The area of the Ohickamauga battlefield is 'said to. be
rapidly increasing.
Tito Hudson Bay officers in tbe
Mackenzie River distriot have been
endeavouring to ascertain how many
wood buffalo remain. They ph*]ce
tho number at 180. The prairie
buffalo is practically extinct.
, Tho newly discovered Sutherland
falls in New Zealand are said to bo
nearly 2,000 feet in height.' Stevo
Brodie will probably take the next
steamer for Now Zealand, and in
anticipation of his attempt to shoot
the falls his obituary has been put
in type.—ite.
Ool. Stewart of Nevada Oily,
Nov., has, by a provision of his will;
directed that his body be cremated
and the ashes dumped into the river
at midnight. To steal upon the
inoffensive river in the dead hpurlof
night and dump therein the ashes of
Ool. Stewart is taking a mighty
mean advantage of tho river.—
Am. paper.
Says ao exchange ! Tlio, startling
information that Mr. Blaine is in
the cabinet has again been sent out
from Washington, If some ono
will kindly turn the key it may bo
possible to keep Mr. Blaine in tbe
cabinet for a day or two at least;
otherwise it is confidently expected
that in. to-morrow's issue an announcement will be mado that the
Plumed Knight is prancing around
just outside the cabinet pasture and
looking longingly over the fence.
In the meantime Mr. Blaine is
enjoying excellent health.
Tho city of Hallowell, Me., says
un exchange, has an imitator of Dr.
Mary Walker in the person of a
maiden lady named Emeline Prescott, who has worn "pants" sinco
her childhood. Her dress skirt
reachos nearly to her knees, and
over this, when out of doors, she
wears a single-breasted coat buttoned
to the chin and having a large number of ontside- pockets. With her
short hair, queer costume and semi-
masculine appearance, Miss Emeline
is an object that attracts much
attention when she appears in
the streets.

since Eve was created only 118 feet
and 9 inches tall to be the helpmate
of Adam, who towered to the height
of 123 feet and 9 inches, according
to the calculations of the learned
M. Henricon, woman has been generally conceded to be inferior to
man. That suoh is still the case
seems to be indicated - by tho de-
mounor of an Indiana woman, Who
lately sought an offlce beforo the
legislature of that state. On being
defeated sho straightway went into
hysterics; Disappointed office-seekers
of the male sex do not, as a rule,
becomo hysterical. They coolly
pocket their defeat, and go to work
to get some other office. Women
must tako the same philosophical
viow of the lottery of office-seeking,
if they wish to compete with men
on equal terms.
This burning of water is a curious
thing. When I went to England
many years ago, a perfect novice in
matters relating to combustion of
fuel, and saw the firemen and engineers pouring bucketfuls of water on
their coal heaps just beforesho v elling
the coal on to thoir fire., I at once
told them that they were doing a
very foolish thing, for it took a lot
of heat to drive off tho water before
the coal would burn. But when
they told me that it was a matter
that did not admit of an argument,
as they had proved that they had
got much hotter fires when they
wet their coal then when they put
it on dry, I was completely nonplussed, and when with my "stoker"
1 fed the furnaces with tan bark,
etc., so wet that the water ran out
of tho hoppers, 1 believed the fire-

FRENCH ROYALISTS
Elated   by  Boulaiiger's Victory
Think the Days of tbe Republic are Numbered.
Henry M. Stanley's real no mo is
John Rowland;.. According to
Noah Brooks, in St Nicholas, he
was born in Wales, near the little
town of Denbigh, and his parents
were ao poor that when he was
about three years old, he was sent
to the poorhouse of St. Asaph to be
brought up and educated. When
he was thirteen years old, he was
turned loose to take care of himself.
Young though he was, he was
ambitious and well-informed. As a
Ud, lie taught school in the village
of Mold, Flintshire, North Wales.
Getting tired of this, he made his
way to Liverpool, England, when
he was about fourteen years of ago,
and there he shipped as cabin-boy
on board a sailing vessel bound to
New Orleans, in the promised land
to ' which so many British-born
youths ever turn their eyes. In
New Orleans he fell in with t. kindly merchant, a Mr. Stanley, who
adopted him and gave him his name.
Mr, Stanley died before Henry came
of age, leaving no will, and the lad
was again left to shift for himself.
Young Stanley lived in New Orleans
until 18G1, when ho was twenty*
one years old, having been born in
1840. Then the great Oivil War
broke out, and Stanley wont Into
the Confederate army.

London, Feb. 7. —The vast number

have caused no littlo secret uneasiness
to the government, whioh deplores the
opportunity given to tho enemy to
create bu overwhelming feeling in their
favor. It is believed, however, that
Mr. Balfour'B course in Ireland was
compulsory, ss a visible backing down
on the part of the government at present would moan weakness, It is possible that changes may take plaoe. at a

runs high. Kingsville will now take
an immense boom, as hundreds -are

that Sir Julian Paunceforte or any*
body else has beon appointed British
minister to Washington. None will
be sent, adds tho semi-official and
wholly inspired scribes, while Mr.
Cleveland remains president. It
remains probable that Sir Julian has
been selected, and will proceed to
Washington soon after General Harrison's inauguration. The Herald in
to-day's London edition says: Lord
Salisbury will have no diplomatic intercourse with the United States while
Mr. Cleveland is president. It was
because of his knowledge that the
prime minister had formed this reiolu*
that Mr. Phelps went home. This he
did to resent what he regarded as discourtesy to his government; that is
entirely truo. The first time tho truth

prince. Tho Areluluko Rudolph had
paid court to tho beautiful Baroness
Mario Velzra for four months, and it
is stated that the Countess Wallerzo
Darisch, niece of the Empress Eliza*
bcth, encouraged tho liaison, The
Baroness Mario had a romantic and
norvous temperament, and was devoted to Princo Rudolph. The pair started in a carriage on the 28th of Feb*
ruary for Meyerltng. They spont next
day together and on tho morning of the
30th both were found dead in the
Prince's bed. Marie was shot through
the forehead and Prince Rudolph as
already described, It is evident thst
tho guilty couple resolved to die together. The coverlet of the bed was
strewn with flowers. The body of the
baroness wss taken secretly from the
chateau to a gamekeeper's cottage, and
was afterwords removed for burial.
The Vetzra family left Vienna on Saturday for Venice, where they will
probably live hereafter.

Wo have received n copy of tho
British Columbia public accounts
for the fiscal year ending 30th June,
1888, from which we will publish a
summary of tho receipts, etc., as soon
our space allows. We havo also
received copies of papers relating to
the Hon, _\ir. Kobsou's mission to
Ottawa. Our Victoria despatches
contained a summarized report of
the contents of these papers, the
other day, when they were submitted to the local house. Tlie
papers consist principally of tho report of Hon. Mr. Dewdney, minister
of the interior, embracing the result
of the conferences had with Mr.
Robson on the subjects of his recent
mission. These subjects, as has already beon intimated in our columns,
were such matters as were pending
settlement between the Dominion
nnd provincial governments, and included, among other subjects, that
of tho Sumas dyking lands. With
reference to these lands, the papers
show that thero has been for somo
time a question ns to the ownership of about 45,000 acres, and tho
object of the Hon. Mr, Robson's
mission was, among other things, to
bring about the settlement of this
question, so that settlers on the
aforesaid lands might secure their
titles as soon as possible and be
enabled to proceed with their improvements without further delay.
As a result of the representations
of the provincial secretary with respect to tbe lands in question, tbe
minister of the interior has recommended that "the 45,000 acres to
which tbey art entitled be ceded to
&egovernment of British Columbia in full and final satisfaction of
tbe 45,000 acres to whioh they are
entitled uudcr the settlement act, in
conaectioi] with the Chilliwhack
and Sumas dyking scheme.1' The
minister of interior further recommends, "in relation to the lands in
the Matsqui reserve and the lands
north of the Fraser River in the
Chilli whack and Sumas reserve,
that where any conflict of entry
may arise through the Dominion
and provincial governments having
severally granted entries therein to
different parties for the same lauds,
the entries granted by the Dominion,
acting in good faith on the understanding arrived at between the
agent of Dominion lands and the
surveyor-general of B, C. in 1884
shall prevail, and the provincial government be allowed to select additional lands, pro tanto, from the
Chilliwhack and Sumas reserve
south of the Frasor River." The
sub-committeeof tlie Dominion privy
council 1ms recommended the adoption of the minister of the interior's
report and the approval of tho recommendations therein contained. It
therefore, only requires the ratification of the Dominion and provincial
parliaments to make the settlement
with regard to to the Sumof. dyking
lands complete. We have much
pleasure in publishing this information for the benefit of our Sumas
correspondent, "A Settler," in a
recent issue, and others like him
interested.
The question of prison reform in
connection   with   penitentiaries   is
attracting    widespread notice on
this continent at  present,   and  is
being discussed freely by the American press especially.   Owing to the
pressure of labor organizations,raany
of the states-prisons have been compelled to deprive   the  convicts  of
unything liko steady or systematic
labor, thus reducing   the   punishment in tbo state penal institutions
to solitary confinement,   with   un
occasional march about the prison
yard.   As may be   imagined,   the
results of such a system have been
demoralization—physical,     mental,
nnd moral—to the unfortunate con-1
victs, and a reactionary protest, in
the name of   humanity,  is being
quite generally made by the leaders
of  public   sentiment.     We quote
from an article on the subject in the
Bt. Paul and   Minneapolis Pioneer
Press, which is written in a,  fervid
and convincing  style  that cannot
fail to call attention to the evils depicted, and   must  go  far towards
compelling society to insist upon  a
■peeay remedy.    "It was left for an
»ge," says the Pioneer Press, "that
erects monuments to John Howard,
and enrolls his name high on  tho
list of philanthropists, to devise for
tho criminal a form of suffering be
' side Which the gaol fever is a trifle,
' and whioh would make the foul and
pestilence-inhabited     prisons     of
Howard's  day a  more delightful
'home than  the  substantial  penitentiaries of thb nineteenth century
•applied   vith   all that   sanitary
science can suggest,     No  novelist
has drawn a pit. tare of prison life in
its darkest aspect as pitiful as   the
report of a visit to the  prisons  of
New York to-day.   Here are  confined,  in their narrow  cages, an
army of conviots of all degrees   of
.guilt   From morning  until night
thoy are locked in cells about seven
feet by three, Whore even exercise
ll impossible.   For half an hour in
the day, perhaps, they come out und
form in lock step to march about
tho prison yard. The remainder df
the twenty-four hours is spent in
what is practically solitary confinement. .The atuiosphero is close
and unwholesome. Tho light of tho
cells is too dim to admit of continuous reading, even for those who love
it. Hour follows hour and day
drags after day its miserable length,
weakening the bodies of these men,
driving their brains to tho verge of
delirium, and confirming, through
their impotent rage at the awful
torture thoy suffer, every evil impulse and every criminal determination that has helped to bring them
to thoir fall. It is horriblo that
society should go about its usual
business, nnd legislatures meet and
separate, and mon debate about
progress and reform, while all thjs
utterly useless and unprofitable
misery, caused by tho act of state
and terminable nt its pleasure, sends
up to heaven its cry for a morey
that man denios. Wo of Minnesota
are standing on tho brink of this
great crime against humanity, this
barbarianism worse than that of
the ages that hung men for stealing
a loaf of bread. If our legislature
does not act, the prisons of Minnesota will witness for the next two
years the wrong that cries for
remedy in New York. It ib a wrong
unpardonable, because it is gratuitous. Tho lessons of experience, tho
teachings of statistics, tho common
sense of the average man all confirm
these words from the recent message of Gov. Luce to tho legislature
of Michigan :
After giving this subject much attention, I am impressed with tho belief that
it'ison labor does not compete with free
aliat- to the extent that is popularly supposed ; because the materials to construct prisons are prepared by free labor;
food and clothing are produced by free
labor ; free labor superintend-, institutions and shops j freo men are employed
as chaplains, physicians, teachers,
keepers and guards. It is doubtful
whether, in an economic view, tho prisons do not give to free labor nearly as
much employment as thoy take from it.
This is n truth as profound as it is
simple. Because prison labor, if
concentrated upon a single occupation, with a view to the largest possible profits, may work hardship to
a particular class of labors, is that
any reason why prison labor, tlie
indispensible necessity of the convict, should be abolished . Be it by
the restoration of tho contract system, or by tbe adoption of the state
account system, or by some other
device as yet unformulated, every
man with a heart in bis bosom asks
the legislature, in the name of common humanity, to save our community tlie reproach and the scourge
that will surely follow the practice
of subjecting the inmates of our
penitentiaries to tho crudest torture
that can he inflicted on the minds
and bodies of man." With the experience of the states-prisons before
us, Canada will do well to avoid the
mistake of supposing thnt her penitentiaries canbe run on the no labor
system. To those who argue in
favor of that system, we would
recommend a perusal of the extract
above from Gov. Luce's message to
the Michigan legislature. The convicts iu a penal institution are entitled to the same consideration us
any other class of society, within
the limits of law and justice. The
object of such institutions is, or
should be, to improve, reform, and
elevate, instead of to degrade, maltreat and ruin, the unfortunates
who have transgressed the moral
and criminal code—and toho have
been caught / There is great opportunity in penitentiaries and like
establishments for the carrying on
of a systematic course of wrong and
cruelty, such a state of things has
been found to exist in publio institutions of the kind in tlie past, not
once nor twice, but many times, If
half the stories that are told about
our own provincial institution aro
true, an investigation is * urgently
demanded. Of course, these stories
aro told by convicts, who bring them
to the light of day ontho expiration of
their sentences. And the word of
a convict is not to bo taken 1 Perhaps not. But who would expose
abuses in penitentiaries if the convicts did not. It is not to
be expected that the perpetrators would tell on themselves. It
would be woll if tho Dominion authorities would investigate tho penitentiaries once in a while, and do so
by means of a speoial commission,
outside of the servicn altogether.
Such a method might lend variety
to the reports. Those institutions
that aro conducted properly would
suffer no injustice; while, conversely,
wrong, if it existed, would lie discovered and righted.

Why Mexico Can Truthfully Be  Called
tbe  Eldorado  of Treasure Hunters-
. Gold  and Silver Hidden from  .
-    View In Old Structures.
Tho cupidity of the Spaniards who landed
with Cortoz upon the shores of Mexico was
first incited by the .golden trinkets whioh
fe Ind-pns brought to them to exchange for
iropcan tawdry, ea,yt\ the .-Two Republics.
W^tftQlpvdttf;theprefliwis metals $hat
lod them to deeds of bravery far eclipsing
any thing of modern years and equaling
the exploits of the oldon knights. The
history of tho torture of Montezuma for the
purpose of ascertaining the point whero tbe
kingly treasure oi millions upon millions in
golden Jewelry was burled substantiates the
fact of the real object of the Spaniards in
conquering the valley of tho Anahuac.
Historians lay great stress upon tho riches
tn precious metals of top rulers of tho soveral empires, but more particularly upon
the groat wealth of Moatezumaof thoOrand
Tcnochtltlan, the present city of Mexico,.
In tho description of tho jewelry and otber
objeots from tho skillful hands of the Aztec
metalworkers ono is transported V the
wildest scopo of imagination verging bo-
yond the wonderful tales of tho miraculous
pieces of mechanism detailed in the "Arabian Nights." Tho golden bird with tempered i-ieccs of metal to glvo It tho exact
e. tared plumage of tho natural bird whioh it
represented and the contrivance to mako it
sing, tho chameleon lizard In gold and in
thu varied hues of nature, are some of the
obj'.c-. s found by Cortcz and his companions
•_■ ra tlio Ax toe capital.
Whom was this vast treasuro of wealth,
which, it is claimed, exceeded any thing
thon possessed bv any European monarch,
burled. Somo say 'it was buried beneath
the waters of Lako Tezcoco, and others
- claim on tbo present site of tbe Iturbide
Etoti,'), Wherever it was stored, Its hiding
pltice still remains dead to tbe world. Probably in no othor country in the universo is
tb-.ru more burled.treasure than in Mexico.
Nearly every week cases of unearthing
treasures nro reported ih somo part of tbe
Republic. Bonks in Mexico aro of recent
orifriu, whleh fact, with the former insecurity from revolutions, probably ln a
meuburo accounts for tho present finding of
so much coin aud jewelry. The custom of
linking money under bricks in the floors
and plugging it In holes ln tho walls commenced with the occupation of tho country
by tho Spaniards. , Even until to-day the
custom Is invogue In many parts of Mexico. Unlike most nations, tho Mexicans,
as a rulo, bold what they accumulate, not
Investing it in enterprises when' thoro are
any great risks of loss. Little:by Uttle
largo capitals are acquired, and are sunk
in the earth or are plugged up ln
walls, and many times ure forever
-lost to tbe world. Two years ago
treasure was found while making repairs in the Conception Church, Without
doubt tho hvgOBt and most valuable treasures are still bidden from view in the
churches, old convents and 'monasteries in
this city. The Catholic churoh was the
woal Hi iost institution in Mexico, as the silver mils and rich ornaments still to be seen
In thu temples of God in the Azteo capital
ttitust. Tho frequent revolutions with
which Mexico waa cursed up to twelve
years ago made it a necessity for tho
priest* to have secret vaults to storo.the
ornaments of the wax images, the service
of the church;and the* tithes. That by
death, sudden departures and othor causes,
tho vaults with thoir treasures lu timo
shouldhavo beon lost to tbo world is not
miraculous.
-The latest discovery ot-B-.tfaftiuire has
just been mado in this city. A woman of
advanced years has lived for n short, timo
in a room in the old Regina convent, oil
Regina streot. She paid no rout, hor quarters being given her by a charitable person
whoso name Is not known. One. day whilo
the old woman was driving a nail in ono of
the walls Bhe noticed that It wont in vory
easily, not giving the required resistance.
Impelled by curiosity, tho woman com*
raonuod to make an excavation in tho wall,
' und with littlo labor soon ^nodAoavlty in
which sho found a number of peces of sil-
! vorwaro, which It is supposed formed a part
df the convent church service. -The worn-
an mode tho discovery known to hor
benefactor, who took out the nieces of plate,
severely reprimanding her for hor curiosity,
aod also telling her that they belonged to dim
and that she must keep tho secret, promising that he would glvo her n piece of
laud whero sho could peacefully pass the
rest of ber days. The old lady continued Uv*
Ing fn tho room, however, and soon aftor m.t;te
another excavation ia tlio wall, In which she
discovered a scaled olla (earthen jar), Sho
broke it, and In It discovered forty or fifty
dollars in gold coins, u reliquary in which
wos tdo wax bust of a monk on which was
A hardly legible inscription, and moreover
some documents or deeds to houses, and one
1011111)* of a hidden treasure, with all do*
scrip!'cms whero it is to be found, this
timo lite old woman .did not toll tho charitable person of hor discovery. She wont and
consulted a Mr. Balaiidrano, to whom she
took all the documents found with the ex.
oeption of the one tolling of tho placo where
the treasuro was hidden. It Is said that Mr,
Noriega, who learned ot the discovery made
by the old wolnon, purchased tho land where
the treasure Is supposed to bo burled, null
hoi already commeucod huntint • for It.

Hon of French ClvUliatl-u.
A Belgian papor professes to havo unearthed a really curious passage out of an
old book in tho State Library of Brussels,
says tho Tablet. This book was published
by Jean Stratius In Lyons In the year 1685,
and contains a number ot- astrological
'■prophecies" much in the .stylo, of the
more celebrated ones of Nostradamis.
Amoni* these is said to be the following:
;*Tu do.s vlvro et mourir, 0 Qaule, soubstroll
Do, *'   "
Deux Siocloi ioui Bo I, tu Mtfwrss, 0
Gaulo,
Tu coMorai Bo IL, aim tflferastombfau. ,
Puts soubs mltrosBo m., Bis Olem olord too
role.'*
The meaning of these lines seems to be
something like this: "Thou must live and
die, 0 Gaul, under throe Bo's. For two
centuries under Bo I. thou sbolt rise, 0
Oaul. Thou sbalt raise up (1) Bo II., and
thou shalt rend thyself into pieces. Thon
under Bo III., tho baker, Bis Clem will ond
(hy role." Tbe explanation of tho supposed
11 prophecy " Is plain enough. "Bo I." is the
Bourbon dynasty, whioh ruled France for
two.conturlcB-frcm 108(1 to 1789, from
Henry IV. to the outbreak of iho revolution. "Bo II." is evidently Napoleon Bonaparte, and " oorsoras " seams to ho a play
. upon his Corslcan origin. Lustly, w„o can
fail to see that "BoIU.," tho "baker," is
Boulangorl Whilst tbe "Bis Clem" who

James1 Gazette. Thoy still rond tho upper
garments in token of bereavement, as Jacob
did when informed of the death of his fayor-
ite son; they still soat themselves for seven
days on tko ground in sign of Mourning as
Job and his friends aro represented in tho
Sorlpturo to have dono. Thoy still eut tho
mourners1 meal, as thoir ancestors did in
Palestino; tboy kindle the memorial light
to comfort tlio departed soul, as they did, in
all likelihood, ages beforo Judaism was
known; and thoy still recite in public the
mourners' prayer, every repetition of which
—according to rabbinical notions—helps tho
deceased a step further out of purgatory.
Tho Jews rigidly exclude all relatives
from the chamber of a dying co-religionist.
Only strangers should bo present when the
soul leaves tho body. As soon as death occurs all tho vessels in the house containing
water are emptied. On the continent, in
places whero Jews reside, the emptying of
tho water vessels In the publio roadway Is
tho usual modo of notifying that a death has
occurred. The praotlco had Its origin, wo
gather from tho rabbinical books, hi an Old
World f_ui.orsUt.ot_, that standing water lu
Buch circumstances became the abiding
place of certain evil spirits whoso presence
in the houso was prejudicial both to the dead
and to tlio living. In tho interval between
death and interment the Jews lay the
corpse qpon the bare ground with tho feet
toward tho door. The body Is covered, but
nothing—savo occasionally a littlo straw—
may bo placed under it. Then the two big
toes aro tied together. On Sabbaths it Is
not, however, permitted to remove a -body
on to tho floor; itwould bo work. But as it
is sometimes necessary that this should
nevertheless be done, rahbU}ical-iugenuil.v
fans contrived a means of aoconipUshiug t*
without violating the sanctity of tho day.
A loaf of bread la placed upon the corpse,
and tho two together are lifted to tbe
ground. It is held that only tho bread has
been moved, and this Is permitted on the
Sabbath,
Two or threo hours before tho interment
takes place, tho ceremonial purification of
the body known as the tahara tukos place.
It consists merely in pouring seven definite measures of warm wator over tho
body, whilo repeating the words: "I will
pour upon you cleansing waters, nnd yo
shall bo cleansed of your uncleanllncss; for;
of all your Iniquities, I will purify you."
Tho body is then placed- in the coffin, at-,
tired In a whitq cotton gown known as a
HUM. This kittel Ib, in Northern Europe,
presented to a bridegroom by his brido on
tho day of their wedding, and Is worn by
him ou cortain occasions, such as tho Day
of Atonement and the Passover Eye celebration. It is made by tho fomalo relatives
of tho bride, but sho herself must not tako
part In tho sowing of it In Poland, Gnlicia,
and hi Russia tho bridegroom always wears
tho death garment under tiio wedding canopy during tho performance of tho marriage
ceremony. Besides the kittel, tho body is
enveloped in the praying scarf or (nlHA used
by tho deceasod during life. Whon this is
dono tho relatives arc summoned. Ono by
ono they draw near and bend over the
coffin; a frlond takes a sharp knife and
makes a silt in one of the outer garments .of:
the mourner—on the right side If the do*
ceased bo a parent, on the loft if a child.
Tho mourner himself thon rends the garment according to the custom of tho country. In the .East tho Jews .tear tho vestments clean across; in England it is only
torn u couple of Angora' breadth. The rent
must not bo sewn up for a mouth, nml tho
mourning garment must he worn, for a
parent, fully oloven months.. The Sptiiiisl.;
uud Portuguese Jews rend their uiuk-rgnr. *
monts ns woll.. Except among tho German
Jews—as they arc culled—In this country,
the last offices of tho dead are performed by
tho members of what are lormcd " Chovrah
Kadishah," or __ Holy Brotherhood," an organization formed In overy orthodox congregation only for this purpose.
Just as near relative.- nro excluded from
tho death chamber, no are tenmles prohibited from attending n funeral or interment.
Why this should be bo it iB difficult to say,
Tlie custom of excluding 'women on such
occasions is cortmi,_y cot an ancient one,
since wo know from the. Talmud ami later
rabbinical books .that, of. old, women joined
in tho funeral procession > uf* thoir people
chanting dirges appropriate to the ceremony. Howevqr, nowadays"thoy". aro not
pormittcd to join, and the obsequies uro
attended by moles only. jn Northern Europe and in parts of Russia', a father Is not
allowed to be present .at the interment of
tho lirst child he Ib unfortunnto enough to
loso. It is believed ho will Ipse o sci-oud if
he does; though this will not In itseif suffico
to explain tho existence of so strange a
custom. The Polish Jews are, however,
peculiar in moro than this. It is tho universal belief of orthodox Hebrews that tho
resurrection of tho dead will take place in
the Holy Land, nnd therefore .all bodies
will havo to mako their way unitergound to
Falostiuo beforo tho Day of Judgment. So,
to facilitate this task, tho "Chitssulim," or
ultra pious. of Russia and Poland, put a
fork in tho hands of tho deceasod when ho
is placed ih .the ground—for coffins are
only used in tho case of a h'chor (flrst
bom), or a - fcoften (one of priestly faintly)—
ln order that he maydig .Ws.way through
the ground with It and thus roach tho
Holy Land, where the'resurrection takes
place.- - •'
On leaving a cemetery—which is known
as the bc.fit-.-1-.i, "house of eternity," or
hc-AMm, !'h->-'_e of life"—it is customary
toph-Mi some of the g* us growing thoro
and throw it oyer tbo shoulder without
looking buck, repeating tne.-,vords:"LlU.
nioretb 1 ncl/ach". (Uo will destroy death
/..-•/.ver)'. Primarily the Mttyking of the
bra.-* iiuu ..o connection with the formulu
that nowadays accompanies It; but tho original Byinbolium of tho act Is forgotten, liko
so many of the practices still extant in
Jewry. On returning from a funeral tho
mourners take their scats on tho floor,
or on low hassocks placed upon tho floor,
and partake of the "mourners' meal."
This consists of hard-boiled oggs and dry
bread and salt, whioh'Is always prepared
by neighbors and is arranged in-readiness
for tho party upon a low stool. It must ho
oaten seated upon tho floor, as indeed must
all meals during the wholo seven days of
mourning..
Count von Mullko's Unfair,
During the winter of I t.TO-71, Count von
Moltko, whilo his bcudquartors wer*. at Versailles, ran short of snuff. Failing to find
any " sneoshiu" of tho brand he likes in
tho local'tobacco stores, ho instructed,-*,
subordinate at tho war offlco in Berlin to
forward him a packet of bis ■•own peculiar"
rappee, Tho snuff was bought, pa(d for,
sent to Versailles, and duly charged to thu
account of tlio nation. When the timo came
for examining the books, after peace hud
(been concluded, tho official intrusted with
the revision of-the accounts of the war
offlco come upon this, startling item: " For
one pound of extra fino, with-of-Tcinquiii.
benn-nerfume-highly-lmpregnated snuff, hy
his Excellency, tho Count von Moltke, .com*'
tnOuded, throe thnleri, seven and a halt
silber-groschon." Tho auditor would not
pass-this unprecedented item, but mado a
memorandum of tho entry, referred it to
his superior, with tho suggestion that as
snuff could not bo held to.be n material nor
ammunition of war, It could not bo Raddled
upon tho national exchequer. Tho iteraand
tho suggestion passed from quo official to
another, until it camo to the ci-own lawyers,
who gavo tholr opinion that the state could
not pay tho snuff-claim. Von Moltko was
officially addressed and requested to pay for
his snuff, and ho at once complied with the
demand.    " •

Somo months ago reports wero circulated in Vancouver and Westminster
to tho effect that Mr, G. W. Rasuro,
better known as the Cow-Boy Evangelist, wns a swindler, embezzler and a
fugitive from justice. At that timo
Mr. Rasure was preaching in Vancouver, and, as might be expected, ho
was considerably annoyed by the ro*
pcrts. He came to the scratch manfully and gave Rev. •). B. Kennedy
the address of a number of persons in
'Kansas from whom information might
bo obtained respecting him. Mr. Kennedy wrote nnd hus now rocoived replies which completely disprove all the
damniung reports circulated concerning
Mr. Rusure's character. Rev. E. C.
Ferguson, of Wellington, Kansas, and
Rev. Mr. L. Walcher, of Caldwell,
Kansas, both speak in the highest
teims of Mr, Rasuro uud are unstinted
iu their praise of him. Wu aro glad

The reports from thia promising locality are becoming daily more satisfactory. o110 °f the latest communications shows that a depth of 1)4 feet in

A telegraph oporator, named Mott,
who had been a resident of this city for
nearly a year, haa skipped to tho land
of hia birth—tho United Statea—leaving many creditors to mourn his departure. Ho had u handy way of inspiring'confidence and without much
difficulty managed to run up a large
number of accounts in various stores
in town which vary in amount from
S10 to $100. Nut only did ho abuse
the confidence of his creditors but ho
shamelessly deserted his wife, a vory
engaging nud pretty woman, in a place
where she is almost a stranger, leaving
her unprovided for and homeless.
Mult had been keeping company with
a woman who is nn inmate of a house
of ill-fame, and for this creature he
would desert his wife for a week at a
time. Being hard pressed by his creditors, and further credit* cut off, he
quietly skipped over to Seattle, whero
he now is nnd whero, it is to bo hoped,
his true character will Boon bo known.
