PARDONED AND DIED.
Cincinnati, Ohio, Jan. 7.- Benj. Hopkins of tiio Fidelity hank, who has heen
pardoned out of the penitentiary, died
this momint*.
"Died of Delirium Tremen," saya
an exchange, is the inscription
chiseled on the granite shaft erected
to the mumory of her husband by a
Mrs, Harris, of Topeka, Kan. It's
a rare instance of fidelity to facts in
churchyard'literature.
Buys an exchange: A cook in a
Toledo restaurant in attempting to
close an iron shutter brought the
shutter into contact with an electric       ...... .........
light wire and received a shook that j Legitimo's army was, defeated hy' tli
caused instant death.   The   sooner
all   parties   learn  of tho  danger
lurking around electric   wires   the
better... The laws regulating them
should lie rigidly enforced. .
Miss Marietta ' Holiey, known
every where as-'Josiah Allen's Wife,"
has made herself both famous and
rich with her pen. She is now
building a 6ne cottage at Adams,
Jefferson County, Now York. She
is youngest of a family of six children and the only one unmarried.
She began her literary work hoping
to be able to help her father and
mother in their hard struggle. Such
a woman deserves all the good she
has received.
Never send a dollar away from
home when the article that dollar
will purchase can be obtained at
home on equal terms, Money is
our financial blood, Ita circulation
keeps the busiest body alive. Bleed
that blood by sending your money
away from homo and soon trade will
put on a look of lethargy and inactivity. Always trade at home and
spend your money at home. It is
twice blessed. It helps the person
patronized, and finds its way to you
again,
Mr. Levi A. Fuller, of Oourt land,
DeKalb County, has just married
his seventh wife. His diary shows
tlmt bo haa received 1,100 replies to
his mutriiiiouial advertisements, exchanged 400 photogmph*-., made 119
proposals, accepted in eighty-five
cttses, married seven times, divorced
foul* times, paid one breach of promise duumge, been shot at onco, stabbed onco, and been engaged in the
game only twenty-five years. Mr_
Fuller does not think marriage a
failure.
The man who is afraid to venture
never succeeds, Many a man fails
in life becauso of timidity, ln any
business enterprise, to wait for an
absolute certainty is to wait for ever
—to waste life in inaction. A
reasonable amount of caution is
commendable, but the man who
never plants a tree through fear
that it will bear no fruit, is not wise.
In every legitimate industry there
is some risk, but he who takes the
risk is the man who wins the prize,
and this is as true in farming ns in
any other walk of life.
An exchange says : In Chicago
divorco is evidently a great success,
whatever may be said of the failure
of marriage. Last Wednesday one
Henry Sharon of that city filed a
petition for a divorce at three o'clock
in the afternoon, and received his
decree freeing him from his wifo by
tea o'clock on Thursday morning.
It is probable that tliis was one of
the speediest divorces on record
even iu Illinois, Ib may strike
many people that if it should become
a common practice to grant divorces
with as little formality and investigation as in this case, the advocates
of free love will have practically
gained all they have contended for.
Says America: The Hay tians
have been vanquished without firing
a shot, and tho American flag is
once more crowned with victory.
Perhaps ibis just as well that no
shots were fired, as our men-of war
are not what might be termed shot-
proof. The steamer Haytien Republic has been delivered over to tho
American admiral, and the lleet has
fired n salute of twenty-one guns in
honor of tho black republic. Tliis
is extremely theatrical, but the
action of tho United States government is not any too creditable.
From some accounts it would seem
that the 11 ay tians had right on
their side, and thore are people who
believe that tho United States has
been amusing itaelf with,a helpless
nation.
Germ any appreciates the exhibition idea to tne full. The Export
Society of Germany has decided to
build the "Floating Exhibition
Palace of (ii-riuaiiy," having raised
.■',000,000 marks for tlio purpose.
It proposes to build a ship to be
called the Kaiser Withelm, which
will bu the work of tho Herman shipyards. According to plans, the ship
will be 5G4 fuut long, G5.1 feet wide,
and 40 feet deep. It will have four
engines propelling as many screws.
The material will be principally
German steel, The cost of a two
years' tour iB estimated at 3,1D0,000
marks. The income from the rented
space-1,000 to 1,200 marks for
each booth—and from sales will be,
ibis thought, at least 7,260,800
marks, leaving a balance of 4,110,*
800, or over 2,000,000 marks
annually—a pretty sum on tho
pnges of tho ledger. Emperor
William it is said has promised his
aid to tho enterprise, and it is hoped
that tho vessel will sail from Hamburg on her first voyage in the
spring of 1890,

CORRESPONDENCE.
Honor lo Whom Honor Is Due,
Editor Coiumjiiax.—I notice in your
telegraphic dispatches to-day that tho
Hon. J. W. Trutch has beon created a
knight, und I can assure you I heartily
congratulate Sir Joseph on his elevation
and hopo he may long live to enjoy
the honor conferred upon him. When I
first arrived in tins province, a numboi-
of year3 ago, I was accredited to Hon.
Mr, Trutch, and tho way ho disposed of
ine and the manner in which he treated
me afterwards, made such a favorable
impression on my mind that I feci it my
duty now, to extend to Sir Joseph W.
Trutch, my humble, but hearty congratulations. But, while I do ao, I feel that
thero is one in British Columbia who lias
been overlooked in this respect. I speak
of the Hon. Mr. Justice Gray. From my
knowledge of Judge Gray'a life, I feel
that it is now high timo his country
ahould give him aome acknowledgment
of bis services. If my readers will bear
with me X will quote a chapter or two in
Judge Gray's history, and wo will see if
it does not compare favorably with the
most honored men In Canada. Li-Col.
Hon., John HamiltonGray,D.C.L.,y.C.t
was born at St. George, Bermuda, in
1814, and was educated at King's College, Windsor, Nova Scotia; was called
to the bar of New Brunswick in 1S37;
was created a Q.C. in 1853, and received
the degree of D.C.L, in I860. He is a
member of the bars of New Brunswick,
Nova Scotia, and Osgoodc Hall, Ontario;
sat as member of the Now Brunswick
legislature from 1860 to 1805—a period
orifi years—during which time he was a
member of the executivo council from
1851 to 1854, and attorney-general in
1850*7, and was speaker of the house of
assembly from 1866 until tho union. He
was umpire between Great Britain and
the United States, under the treaty of
Washington, 1857*8, and received therefor the approval ond thanks of Her
Majesty's government, through Lord
John Ruaael; was Her Majesty's commissioner under the great seal, to settle, in
conjunction with Hon. Messrs, Howe and
Ritchie, the tenant right question in P.
E. Ialand, 1860; was a delegate to the
Conference of the Provinces, anent confederation, at Charlottetown in IS64, and
waa also a delegate to the famous Quebec
convention of 1864, which settled confederation. Ho waa oleoted to the commons by acclamation after the union in
1867. In May, 1808, he waa appointed
arbitrator for the Dominion, under the
142nd section of the B.N.A. Act, for the
division and adjustment of the debts,
credits, liabilities, properties, and assets
of Upper and Lower Canada, amounting
to $10,500,000, The decision given at
that time was followed by tho Geneva
and fishery arbitrations, and was afterwards sustained by tho privy council of England. Ho was appointed a
judge of the supreme court of British
Columbia in July, 1872; waa appointed
commissioner, with Hon. J, A. Chapleau,
secretary of atate of Canada, in 18S4, to
enquire into and report upon Chinese immigration. Upon the report of this commission the Chinese Immigration Act
was passed, which has ao tar very materially restricted tho influx of Chinese
into this province. Besides all I have
mentioned, Judge ('ray has been connected with the advancement of education, the improvement of agriculture and
railways, aud interested himself very much
iu all political and social reforms having
for their object tho advancement of his
country aud the well-being of his fellow
men. 1 am sorry to seo that the powers
that bo have neglected this honorable
gentleman and allowed htm to reat in his
old days under tho shadows of tho settiug
sun on the shores of the Pacific, iinhon-
orod and forgotten, after all he has dono
to build up this great Dominion, Surely
Sir John A. Macdonald must remembor
John Hamilton Gray, of Now Brunswick;
but it appears he does not; for, if 1 remember rightly. Gray alone, of all the
honorable gentlemen who attended tlie
Quebec convention of 1804, remains, to
this day without recognition.

Monday Erratic. Jan. 7.
On Saturday we published Oapt
Scoullar's "election card." A careful perusal of that document must
convince the electors that Oapt.
Scoullar has taken an intelligent
and comprehensive survey of the
present situation and requirements
of the royal city. Perhaps the only
thing that has been omitted is the
market, nnd it is safe to Bay, from
the general scope and tenor of tho
address, that this item 'was not intentionally left out, but merely
overlooked. We shall not undertake ut this time to review the address at length. Tho various items
have been at one time or another
taken up and advocated in these
columns. The document throughout breathes the spirit of progress
and is definite enough to insuro that
the city's advancement and general
welfare will be well looked after by
Oapt. Scoullar, if he is returned,
which, it is safe to predict, he will
be, and in an unmistakable manner.
If the other candidates subscribe to
a similar platform, we shall have a
council for 1889 under whoso guidance and direction the royal city
will move swiftly on the path of
progress toward her destined goal.
In Saturday's Columbian- we
published the requisition, signed by
a large number of representative
citizens, asking John Hendry, Esq.,
president of the Royal Oity Planing
Mills Oo., to accept the nomination
for mayor at the forthcoming civio
election. Also Mr. Hendry's reply,
accopting the nomination, and promising, if elected, to do his utmost to
promote the general interests aud
welfare of the city, a promise which
it is almost certain Mr. Hendry
will have the opportunity of fulfilling, and our citizens are to be
congratulated that such is the case.
Having such extensive interests in
tho city, and the influenco accruing
to the head of a large' manufacturing establishment, to say nothing of
his business experience and enterprise, a better man than Mr. Hendry could not have been secured for
mayor at this particular juncture iu
the affairs of the royal city. The
full aldermen's ticket published the
other day, and still standing in
these columns, is also a good ono on
the whole—the best complete ticket,
wo have no hesitation in saying,that
could be put forward in the city at
this time. Others may be brought
out, and if so it is time they were
showing themselves. It is duo to
themselves and the ratepayers that
all candidates, including those al.
ready out, should follow Oapt,
Scoullar's example, and acquaint
the publio with the platform on
which they stand, so that the electors will not have to take anything
for granted, but may be enabled to
vote on clearly defined issues. While
we believe that tho ticket already
out very fairly represents the almost
universal spirit of progress apparent
in our oity, each individual member
of the ticket should inform the electors, either by the press or by public speech, just where ho stands—
and by his own words he ahould
stand or fall.
Tho Chicago Inter-Ocean of a late
date has a long article on   "Saving
the Boys,"   which  contains   many
valuable suggestions to that important ond.   A little "saving" would
not hurt some of the  boys   of  our
oities, according to accounts which
appear from time to time  in  the
papers.   The Inter-Ocean advocates
tho estnblishmcut in Chicago of  a
boys' resort, or club, such   ns  has
been worked with such marked success in other oities.     The Rev. J,
0. Collins, of Connecticut, says tho
Inter-Ocean, has becomo  known as
a most  successful   workor  among
boys, and the fruits of his humane
energy appear   in   the  increasing
favor with which boys who generally
pus as "tough" turn to  the night
asylums opened   to  them through
his influence.   Thirteen years  ago
he became  superintendent of  the
Boys' Olub  in  New   Haven, and
there demonstrated  the  ease. with
whiob wholesome restraints from
evil may be thrown about the  eity
waifs whose home is  largely  the
streets.   Opening and maintaining
room, to which they  could  have
acceu at rll suitable hours  of  the
day nod evening, and in whioh they
could find profitable entertainment,
books, lectures, readings, and music
being among the attractions, proved
to be a  most practicable  way  of
gathering  these  fresh  and  small
urchins from  the  atreets and inclining their mind, to thoughts and
ideas other than thou ot mischief.
Though unruly at first, disposed to
look over the   various plana   and
rule, foe their betterment, they very
speedily, under kindly, sympathetic
influence,   became  tractable,   and,
what ii much more to the purpose,
morally receptive.   The experiment
was not long in culminating in success, and other clubs were organized,
in imitation of the New Haven idea,
that are. now doing a great work in
New England and a hopeful work
in New York. It is found that
boys are very willing to quit the
streets for well-lighted, comfortable
rooms in which they encounter a
spirit of cordiality that extends into
respect in proportion to the mending
of their conduct. They like to be
treated as if they were of some importance in the great scheme of
life, to be talked to as though they
were rational beings capable of sub-
stantial, manly development, and
apply themselves with surprising
energy and seriousness to the beneficial work of winning commendation. The good imparted in their
hearts and minds by this means, -by
the instruction they receivo, by tho
examplo set them, by the mental
stimulus they get from lectures,
from books, and from encouraging
works is lasting, takes -root and
flourishes in desires to rise above
the streets and the degrcdotions of
vicious associates. The Inter:
Ocean s'uys : "Some money is required to open a boys' resort, but in
a city liko Chicago that money
should be got readily. If there
wore accommodations for from 200
to 1,000 boys, whoro they could go
of nights for entertainment and
moral strengthening, it would soon
be well enough patronized to convince the most skeptical that it is
not such a difficult matter to set
boys moving in the right direction
if the effort be made with good
judgment and in the right spirit.
Surely it is worth the expenditure
of $100,000 to rescue the street boys
of Chicago from destruction, It
would be a good return if one in
every twenty wero fortified with
new resolves und the ambition to
become something better than an
outcast." The paper quoted above
concludes ns follows: "Boys are
tractable if rightly managed, and
few of us in this age hold to the
old opinion of total depravity and
irredeemable viciousness. A peculiar temperament is required to
copo with the perverse habit of the
lawless, independent street gamin,
but the main thing is to make them
feel a sympathy with them, nn earnest wish to help them without
coercion, ond to this their hearts
arc usually responsive. It is an
easy way to fight crime to take it
in its incipiency. In social concerns as in domostic oconomy, a
stitch in time saves nine, and no
nobler mission of reform can bo put
in operation than that which begins at the beginning," Some such
institution ns described above might
be worked, on a smaller scale, of
ceurse, to udvantnge in most of our
cities in this provinco.

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors of New Westminster City :
Lames and Gentlemen,—
At the request of a number of friends I
have consented to place my name ln
nomination for the position of alderman
at tho coming election, fully realizing the
Importance nnd duties of tho offlce. If
elected 1 will endeavor to the best of my
ability, to place our city ln tho front rank
of the cities of B.C. The following Important questions will have my careful
attention:
1. Railway.—I will use every legitimate
means In my power to bring to a successful termination the building nnd completion of the Southern Railroad, mid will
treat liberally any projected railway
which may wish to run into our city,
always carefully guarding tho beat Interests of the city. And itls my opinion
if we aro truo to ourselves and bury any
little differences that may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, we can make New
Westminster tbe greatest railway center
and most Important city between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Water Supply.—I am in favor of the
city owning Its own watef works, for there
is a very large revenue to be derived from
this source, if properly conducted, nnd,.if
clcotcd, I will at once take up this question
and deal with It on business principles,
Water rate debentures whon iBsued.hear
their own valuoand will not be oue dollar's tax on the ratepayers.
3. Sewerage.—This is one of the most
Important questions that tho new counoil
will have to grapple with, and, as there Ib
bound to be u large emigration here this
yoar, It behooves ub to ne alive and get
our city well advanced bo aa to keep away
those dread diseases which we so mercifully escaped last year. And I have no
doubt if you elect the right men a scheme
can he got up whereby the city can bo
f>roporly sewered,and the revenue derived
rom the sale of water bo mode to pay the
interest and sinking fund for both water
works and sewerage.
4. Strkets—Something must bo dono
at once to open up all streets In the city
so ns to give workingmen and mechanics
a (■bailee to get to their lota and buildings,
and, If elected. I will give this subject uncareful attention and hearty support.
5. City Hall.—If any proposition Is
brought forward for tho erection of a suitable city hall, nnd If the finances of the
city will allow It, I will glvo It my warmest support.
0. Btrret Lighting.-I will favor the
extending and improving of oursyslemof
street lighting, for there is no doubt It will
stand considerable Improvement.
7. Park.—In ordor to make the coming
agricultural ahow a success we must puta
portion of the city park in a lit condition
with suitable buildings, etc. If elected I
will do my be-tto make the ground*- a
credit to the royal city, I am also in favor
of removing the unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent nnd planting a few shade
trees to replace the stumps. Nature has
done much for our city and It only wants
touching np a little to make It perfect,
8. Public Library.—There la no doubt
anew building la wanted to replace the
dchipidated one now occupying a valuable lot, and there Is no doubt In my mind.
Lowenberg, Harris & Co.
Real Estate, Insurance
-AND-
un: sub, nuu .num in lit* uuuuiiu ittjr ilililii,
but that a suitable one could boorected
with stores underneath and library Above;
and the rents from said stores would more
than pay for Interest and sinking fund,
and leave a balance for keeping the library In proper condition,
9. Manufacturers,-! will encourage
any manufacturers thutcontcmplatostarting business in this city, treating them
In a liberal manner, and will use every
eflhrt to show them the advantage of doing

U»e Froeew.
In the year 1870 there was living In the
town of Xvangorod, In tho pro-rinco of
Cluiriuigof, a skillful and accomplished
young surgeon named-___r. BailUe, writes*'
Mr. George Kennan in one of hie Century
■articles on Russia, Although he was a
man of liberal views,., to was not an agitator nor a rovolutionistjwid had taken no
active part in political affairs. Bomo timo
in tbo lato winter or early spring of 1879
thevo camo to him, with letters of introduction, two young women who had been
studying in one of the modical schools for
women in St Petersburg, And tnd boen ox-
pelted and ordered to return to their
homes in central Russia on account of their
alleged political " untruatworthiness"
(noblagonadozhnost). They were very
anxious to complete their oducation and to
fit themselves for useful work among tbe
peasants; and -they begged Dr. Baillio to
aid them in thoir studies, to hear their
recitations, -and to allow them to make use
of his library and the facilities of his
offlco. As thoy were both in on "illegal"
position—that is, were living in a place
whero, without portaiMioo from tbe
authorities they baft nr&tf-t to bo-it was
Dr. IfBiUlefe duty a»a loyal subject to h»d
thorn over to tho poUcj-^ regardless of tke
fact that they hall come to blm with
letters ef introduction and a petition for help. Ho happened, howover, to bo a man of courage, independence
and generous instincts; and instead of betraying them, he listened with sympathy to
thoir story, promised them his aid, introduced thorn to his wifo, and began to give
thorn lessons. Tho yoar 1870 was a year of
inlonso revolutionary activity in Russia,
Attempts woro constantly being mado by
tho terrorists to assassinate high Government ofilcinls ; and tho police, in all parts of
- tho empire, woro more than usually suspi-

It is a dear, bright morning in the bu.iu-
mer of 18M,: but the sun ""
brilliantly upon Rangoon lool
h strange and lUrtling —
David Serin one ef his
Burmah letters. Tho wholo town seem*, to
bo out of doorB, and every street ia a surging sea of wild faces livid with fear or block
with rage. AU along tho rude defeases
which face toward the river a bob of
ragged Burmese soldiers are swarming like
ants over the crumbling earthworks nnd
half-effaced batteries, piling up rusty cannon bolls and dragging honeycombed guns
to aud fro as if preparing for the coming of
an oaemy. Suoh is, indeed, the caso, for if
you look in tho direction whither iheir
scowling eyes turn restlessly over and anon
you will seo for down tho broad, winding
river, toworing high abovo the dark-mass
jf junglo that clothes its bonks, tbO(.whito
-jails of several stately mon-of warj with'
tho British flag waving above then*. Tho
•'wUitc-facod:bea*its" whom the royal Tom
rhumb of Burmah hai io ung Insulted and
defied have como at last to demanjS satisfaction in earnest.
But the thickets throng and the loudest
uproar concontrato themselves upon tbo
great market near the lauding place, whero
a roaring whirlpool of gnashing teeth, and
•'■flaring eyes, and clonched bands and
brandished weapons and wolfish yells boils
and eddies round two unarmed whito men,
bound, helpless,  sploshed with mud aud
deeding from many a bruise, but still wearing a look of quiet and fearless calmness
-.hough tAcy tee, thoy haVe ta their veins
iho bold American blood of the warriors ol
■'tinker Hill and Valloy Forge, and now,
taved from instant death nt the hands of
ahe mob only to perish by tho Blower ahd-*:

ho Is as insonsiblo as an English work-house

than the imhrhted ruffians around him, ho
clous aud alert.  The visits of tho young knows that tho whito men can fight, and
girls to Dr. Balllie's house and offlco soonthatif theyshouldtaketlio'tow). tho mur-
> attracted tho attention of tho local author!
' ties In Ivaugorod, and thoy tool! stops to ascertain who they were and whoro they had
' como from. An investigation showed that
I ono of them was living on a forged pass-
I port, whilo the othor had nono, and that
I both had been expelled from St, Petersburg
' for political " untrustworthiness." Their
i unauthorized appearance iu Ivangorod,
a when they should havo boen at their homes,
l and their half-secret visits—generally at
night-to the house of Dr. BoilUe, wero ro-
: garded as evidonco of a political conspiracy,
I uud on tho 10th of May, 1ST0, both they and
tho young surgeon wero arrested and ex-
I ilcdhy administrative process to Siberia.
f Dr. Uuillie eventually was sent to the arctic
vlllago of Verkhoyansk, lutitudo 07.80, In
tho provinco of Yakutsk, where he was
seen in 188!$ by Engineer Melville, Lleuton-
t unt Danonbower, Mr. W. H. Gilder and
I ull tho survivors of tbo arctic ex-
I plui-mg steamer Joanuotte. At the time
I of Dr. lhiillio's banishment, his wife, a
i beautiful young woman, twenty-four or
f twottty-ilvo yoars of ago, was expecting con-
J lluoimmt, uud was therefore uuublo to go to
l'sii).*!*iii with him. As soon as possible,
1 iiewqvor, after tho birth of her child, and
I In-fore sho had fully recovered hor strength,
I sho left her nursing baby with relatives and
I Blurted on a journoy of moro than 6,000
I miles to join hor husband in a vlllago situ-
I iilntl north of the Arctic Circle and near tbe
I Asiatic polo of cold. Bho hod not tho
I necessary means to mako such a journoy by
I rail, steamer and post, as Lieutenant
I Sulioutzo mado it in 1685-80, and was there*
I lore forced to ask permission of the
I Minister of the Interior to travel
I with ii party of exiles. As far as tho city of
I Tomsk in Western Siberia, both political
I uud common criminal oxllos are transported
I in convict trains or barges. Beyond tbat
I point the common criminals walk, and the
I politicals are carried la telegas, at the rate
I of about sixty miles a week, stopping in an
I etupu every third day for rest. At this rate
Iof progress Mrs. Uaillio would have reached
I her husband's place of oxllo only after six-
I toon months of Incossaut hardship, privo-
f lion nud suffering. But sho did not reach it.
[•For many weeks her hope, courage and lovo
f Buutuiucd hor, and euublcd her to endure
L without complaint tho jolting, tho suffocat-
['lug dust, the scorching hunt, and tho cold
Ihutumnol rains On tho rood, and tho bad
1 food, tho plank sleeping-benches, the vor-
I min, and the pestilential air of the etapes;
I but human endurance has its limits. Three
lor four months of this unrelieved misery
[.With constant anxiety about her husband
land for tho babe that, for hor husband1
I sake, sho had abandoned in Russia, broke
I down hor health uud hor spirit. Sho souk
I hito deep despondency and eventually began
I to show, signs of mental aberration. Alter
I passing Krasnoyarsk her condition bo*
luamo such that any suddon shook
I was likely completely to overthrow her
I reason—and tho shock soon camo. There
I uro two villages in Eastern Siberia whose
Inumcs are almost alike—Vorkholensk and
I Verkhoyansk. Tbe former is situated on
I the rlvor Lena, only 180 miles from Irkutsk,
I whilo tho latter is on tho headwaters of the
I Yitnii, and is distant from Irkutsk nearly
,700 miles. As tho party with whioh she
I wus traveling approached tho capital of
il'n-jtoru Siberia her hope, strength and
Icourngo soonied to revive. Hor husband,
ijshc thought, was only, a few hundred miles
I away, and in a few moro weeks she would
[ho in his arms., Bho talked of him constaut-
I ly, counted tho vorstpostB which measured
I her slow progress toward him, and literally
I lived upon the. expectation of spoedy re-
luuion with him. A.fow stations wost of
I Irkutsk she accidentally became aware, tor
I tho flrat time, that hor husband was not in
I.Verkholonsk, but iu Verkhoyansk; that she
I was still separated from him by nearly 3,000
I miles of mountain, stoppo and forest; and,
I thut in order to reach his placo of banish-
I ment thut yoar sho would havo to travol
I mnny weeks alone on dog or reindeer
fslodgoftin terrible cold, through the arctic
I solitudes of Northeastern Asia. Tho sud-
I den shock of this discovery was almost im*
I mediately futal. Sho became violently in-
I juuu and died insane a few mouths lator ln
■ the Irkutsk prison hospital, without ever
IsociiH* again tho husband for whose sake
I she bud endured suoh mental and physical
| ugomes.	
Punning at Death's Door.
A story is told of a man who suffered
I severely from ague, which neither modicino
J nor charms could alleviate, but being adit vised io devote himself to punning bocamo
**|. so mterosted iu tbo pursuit Uut he speedily
[ luughcd himself into robust health. It can
[ not bo denied that a hearty laugh, oven at
| the cost of a bad pun, is no moan thing hi
1 Itself, nnd has often been known to bo of
fi iiu'iiiimublffaevvlco at tho crisis of a serious
Jj malady. A physician visiting ono of the
I brotherhood, who was tn extremis, apolo-
1 gtzed for being late one day, but said he had
1 been to soo a man who had fallen down a
1 woll. ''Did ho kick tho bucket, doctor!"
| gi-ouned tho punster. Again, the story ts
J told, tf we remember rightly, of Theodore
| Hook, who, as he lay dying, encased in
, mustard poultices, was visited by a friend,
| to whom ho remarked: "Floaty of mustard,
i my boy, but very littlo beof."
A Cow Commits Sulcldo.

The animal backed up to a tree, Bwitobed

the placo of execution and behead them
forthwith.
Tho words of doom aro hailed with a roar
of savage joy, and tho sea of fierce faces
and tossing arms poured .out of tho narrow
street in ono great wave, sweeping along
with thorn their victims, behind whom
stalks tho executioner himself, a gaunt,
scowling, frightful creature, with no clothing save a blood-stained cloth around his
loins, the hideous spots on whose wolfish
face mark htm as one of those miserable
Timinals who havo redeemed their own
worthless lives from death by accepting
Ih-- degrading office of inflicting death upon
thoir fellow-men. As the ghastly procession moves onward tho wretch flourishes
his broad-bladed knife abovo the heads of'
the doomed missionaries, and at every rep-:
ctltioh of this grim pautomtmo a howl of
ei'iiol triumph rises from tho savago throng
around thorn.
But oven in this deadly peril with tho
shadow of tho grave deepening around
them, the two bravo Amorleuns never
llinch for a moment. AU tha taunts and
•nrscs of tho murderous rubble move them
.int. a whit, and whon tbey roach tho place
jf death thoir only wonts are: "Brother,
wo shall moot again in Iloavon." Tho Gov-
ai'nor gives the fatal signal, tho crowd falls
ouck to right and left, aud tho grim headsman approaches Ids victims with brandished kuife and forces thorn' down upon
tholr knees.
"Where is your God, now, Christian?"
cries the savage,with a jeering Jaugh. >*lEeth
say that He is-all powerful—tot Him save
you then if Ho can."
" If it bo His will," anBWors one of tbe
sclf-dovoted heroes, " Ho can Bave us evon
now."
Tho dauntless words aro scarcely uttered
when there comes u roar ub if tbo earth wero
rant in twain—a Unci; gust of hot, stilling
smoke makcB all as dark as night—aud in
the grim hush that followed is board the
crash of falling roofs, mingled with shrieks
of agony and cries of terror. When tho
smoke clears nwny tho two Americans find
themselves kneeling alone amid tho vast
apace which wus lately so crowded. Far iu
tho distance thoir cruel enemies are fleeing
liko hunted sheep, while a few paces off lies
tho headless corpse of tho savago executioner, struck dead by an English cannon-ball,
but still clutching iu his stiffening hand tht
huge knifo which was to have drunk thoii
blood.
What follows Is tho moro mockery of a
battlo. The valiant Governor and his officers
havo already taken to their heels and the
fooblo and unskillful lire of tho few who attempt resistance Is speedily crushed by tho
tremendous broadsides of the English men-
of-war. An hour later tho British bluejackets pour Into tho town, only to find it
already deserted, and bear back with thein.
tn triumph tho two gallant missionaries
who lived for many years after to tell how
Ood had remembered Ills servants in their
sorest neod.
WOMEN   AS COLLECTORa
A Now Avenuo of Employment Opeuc-d to
the Weiikt-r Hex,
Tho avonuos of employment for women
aro coustantly increasing. Already sho
hus.proved herself a- good clork, a good
book-keeper and a good typo-writer,
and tho latest is a femalo collector. , At
least u dozen houses in Kansas City ore
employing women in this., capacity, and
thoir number scorns to bo constantly increasing*
A woman may bo a book-keeper or a typewriter and yet bo tho most feminine creature imaginable, despite her business relations, sayB the Kansas City Star, but thi
femalo dunnor would seem to he another
kind of business woman, und sho brings forward very promptly tho question of how
much distinction must bo mado between a
woman and a man iu tho some business.
Ono thing is certain, ono can not kick u
lady collector out of Iho office.
Tho female collectors are for the most
part young women, and, according to thoir
employers, they are as persistent and Unsuccessful in tbelr business a» men. Tholr
modo of operation, howover, Is somewhat
peculiar, and they do not scorn to go about
tlie collection of a bill the samo way as.»
man. A reporter happened in an offloe yesterday whero fifteen or twenty young mon
were working. Whilo he was talking with
the manager a well-dressed young woman
walked iu and inquired for one of the young
men, He was pointed out to her, and While
tho wholo office watched her sho walked
over to his desk and began a convereetiou
with him in a tono so low no ono could hear.
Aftor tulklng ior a low moments sho turned
to go, and raising her volco, said:,
"If you don't como In and settle I'll be
around again on Saturday."
When she was gono the young man came
in for an unmerciful guying, and it is safe te
say ho mado a desperate effort to pay tbe
bill before Saturday. Sho was the collector
for a jewelry firm.
A merchant wbo has adopted the new
schomo was asked about it, end sold: "1
find that my lady collector ia persistent,
faithful and trustworthy, and has groat
success tn making some vory bad collections, and I don't soo why a lady should not
be permitted to ask for .tho payment of u
bill if she can do almost overy thing tin
about an office."     	
Knocked Hlm Out.
A pastor somctimo since Sought financial
help for un important charity. Among thoso
whom lio asked to give somethln;- w.u a
lady who unfortunatoly boro a vinegary,
face. She declined to glvo money, but
pr jmit-ed to " lend her countenance " to the
causo.  Ho rotlrod tn dismay.

Maple Ridge Notes.
Thu diphtheria is still carrying away
its victims. Fivo deaths have already.
Over a dozen cases ure under medical
treatment. The quarantine regulations are now vigorously enforced. It
is earnestly to be hoped that the
scourge has spent its force. Dr. Fagan
deserves much praise for his assiduity
of attendance on the sick; only ono
died under his care; the other four
had no medical treatment. A petition
for pecuniary aid from the government
has been largely signed, and it is
earnestly hoped that some assistance
may be given to this distressed and
afflicted settlement. The expense of
maintaing the quarantine is $50 per
day. Tho municipal treasury is exhausted, which at this season of the
year is no new thing. The ratepayers have to faco a large floating debt
incurred in tho construction of public
works, aod now to maintain tlie quarantine at $350 per week is a matter
that the exigencies of tho calamity
and dire necessity demand.—Com.
The "Tocsin op the Soul, -the Dinner Bell," as Byron calls it, suggests no
pleasing reflections to the dyspeptic, bilious sufferer. He partakes, of course,

like load in his unhappy stomach. There
iB a remedy, however, and its name is
Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure. No case is entirely hopeless.

Exact Value a Belter Showing Is
Made Than last Year.
The Hen and Capital Employed to ion-
duct the Flaking, and the Ut-venne
Derived.
Tho revenue from the Ashing industry of the Fraser River and British Col,
umbia generally fur the year 1888 has,
on tho whole, been most satisfactory.
Tho grand value of the catch is considerably greater than ever before,
although tho salmon run on tho Fraser
River did not turn out to bu all that
was expected. The canners had made
preparations tu pack fully 200,000
cases, nnd would have done so hnd the
run of salmon boen good, but tho run
failed und it was only by the most ston-
uous ellbrls that they succeeded in putting up 76.000 cases. The present
year, however, is certain to bo au extra good oue for the canners, us it
never happens that tho catch is a failure two seasons in succession, and the
pack will, in all probability, largely exceed all previous records. Since the
returns published in The Columbian
fur 1887 a now industry—black cad and
halibut fishing in deep waters—has
sprung into existance and bids fair to
develop into gigantic proportions.
Captain 0. D, Grant, of this city, a
practical fisherman, was ono of the
first to explore the northern waters in
search of the halibut and cod banks
which were known to exist thero, tho
exact location of which, however, had
not been fixed. The voyage of discovery was rewarded with success and
Captain Grant returned to port with
a full cargo, having located several extensive banks of these fish. Since then
other fishermen have entered the bust*
nessand all have been most successful—
nono tailing to secure a full catch.
This branch of tho industry is now
established and the vast extent to
which it is certain to grow is ut present
impossible to foretell.
The capital invested in the salmon
packing industry alone is very great,
and is well worth special notice. On
the Fraser River $276,000 aro invested in buildings, $53,000 in boats and
small vessels and $70,000 in nets. Iu
the northern canneries $311,000 are
invested in buildings, $37,000 in boats,
$43,000 in nets. On the Fraser River
598 boats were employed during the
season, while the northern canneries
employed 255 boats. The canneries
of the province required the services
of 1745 shoremen and 2513 fishermen
for the seasons work.
The returns given below are not
complete owing to the difficulty of
obtaining information from tha many
fishonnen whoso stations are establish-
ed in small bays and inlets out uf the
course taken by northern steamers.
When tho complete returns are received tho grand total given below
will be augmented by from $50,000
to $100,000.

THI   HKAL    CATCH.
Twenty vessels were employed
during the season in tho sealing business off the coast of British Columbia
and in Behnng's sea. Although the
number of vessels employed was not so
great as in 1887 and the number of
skins secured was considerably less,
yet the value of the catch was slightly
greater than in any previous year.
The doubt as to whether British Columbia vessels would bo allowed to
fish 111 Behring sea during the season
accounts for the smallncss of the catch
as the best portion of the season had
passed before the lealors were assured
they would not be  interefored  with.

THE CHURCHES.
A Summary at Wlist was Said at Some
of tbe  Cbarcbv*  Yesterday—The
Epiphany and tbe Sacrament.
At the Episcopal Church yesterday
morning Venerable Archdeacon Woods
preached from Matthew 2c. 9v., on
tho "Epiphany or Manifestation of
Christ," and noted the various stages
or epochs in the world's history from
the creation—seven in all, and as near
as can be computed 700 years apart-■
and, under this calculation, the second
cuming of Christ might take place 360
years hence. The world had gone back
in astronomical knowledge, while those
who know little of astronomy placed a
superstitious value upon their knowledge. The wise men saw His star in
tho cast nnd came to worship Him.
His manifestation was clearly marked;
and the Venerable Archdeacon closed
his sermon by an appeal to all to live
up to the teachings of the churoh and
take comfort in hi graces. Next Sunday an ordination service will be held
at Holy Trinity church at 10 a.m. by
His Lordship Bishop Sillitoe. Matins
will bs said at 7 o'olock in consequence.
At the Methodist church last evening, Rev. Mr. White spoke from 1 Cor.
lie. 23-26, and said that of all the
heresies that have split the churoh the
different views with regard to the
Sacrament of the Lord's Supper and the
manner of baptism had caused the
most, The Sacrament of the Lord's
Supper had received great abuse at the
hands of the Corinthian churoh, who
held it weekly, and it gradually merged
into a great fesit at which drunkenness
and gluttony became prevailing, and
that was why St. Paul had written
them thia letter. The sorvico was a
lineal successor of the passover. Here
the rev. gentleman graphically described the passover, which the church,
under the old law viewed as the Lord's
passover, and when Christ came he
didn't create a new passover but
spiritualized the service to signify His
crucifixion, and since that time it had
been so observed by all Christians.
There was no rule given as to thu time
or place or posture in which it is to be
administered. It is spiritual und
typical and, understood in that sense,
is to be celebrated most in accord with
its solemnity. Many, oven Christians
ask, What is ita uso—is it not a legacy
from Rome—what good can it do'/ It
was a command of the Lord Jesus to
do it in remembrance of Him and we
must accopt it as he commanded, und
we can get no servico tu replace it. He
held no supc ititious value in the service, neither did he believe that in Ihe
bresd and wine the actual body and
blood nf Ohiist were present, or that
it wus a sacrifice, but that it was a
peculiarly solemn service, and snored,
in that while partaking He meets His
people in spirit. The fitness of the
service was manifest, as it was a memorial—" Do this in remembrance of
me." Wo think of various friendB,
nnd their photo's to us ns years pasa
mako thero present, nnd when they return we do not notice the change in
them so much. Then wo have mementoes of those tbat are gone, and
(pulling his watch out) said it was his
father's, presented to him by tho citizens of Now Westminster in 1863, and
he prized it dearly. And how we
cherish a child's frock, toy, or letter,
as it made us remember. So our recollection of Christ wtts stirred. We
had not got into that blessed state of
full spiritual experience that wo did
not need stirring. That morning ho
met his old teaoher from Nnnaimo.and
he was for the moment carried back to
the scenes of his youth And the service made us remember that Christ
died on the cross, that He did not redeem us sitting on tho right hand of
His father, but in the bread we were
reminded of the nails piercing H1b
hands and feet, in tho wine the piercing
of His Bide and the Sowing of Hisbluod.
We believe that Christ died on the
cross for our Bins, and at His table we
speak to all who who witness us partake our belief. Some think it not
genteel to speak of the blood of Christ,
but without it there could be no remission of sins. No man took the life
of Christ; it was a giving—"I lay down
my life," &c.—and every timo we partake wo remember thnt he shed it freely, and before the world it is our testimony of belief. The Lord's Supper
created fellowship in the church; it
wns the touchstone by which we could
Bee if we were in harmony with the
church of Christ; we may not feel much
the matter in the ordinary service, but
when it came to His supper there our
fitness was teated,snd if found lacking
we were brought back lo Christ. Ill-
will bars us out, and we muat meet
unitedly under one father, the children of God. It wai a bond of union;
churches may differ in points of doctrine, but when thoy come to His
table these were all laid aside, and the
Lord's Supper held Christian people
together. The world was getting
better, and that they laid those differences aside proved this. When visiting churches of other denomination!,
when it came to the Lords Supper, he
felt at homo. Who may partake of it?
All Christians havo a right; all who
want to be Christians and aro determined to serve God may come. It iB
the penitent who needs to come to the
table; there is only one thing to keep
you away—cherishing sin. You are
sorry, but holding on to it still. Let
go the sin, and say " I will be Thy disciple." The rev. gentleman strongly
urged hit hearers to partake of the
Sacrament, but warned them not to
take it in the spirit of ill-will. It wss
to be celebrated " till 1 come." He
shall come again in the clouds—the
same Jesus; every eye shall see Him.
Nations shall wail because of Him.
Have you forgotten that you will see
Him? Thore will be eyes brightened
with smiles; and, aftor reminding' that
all will be there, the preacher closed
an impressive aermon by imploring all
to accept salvation and join at the table
of the Lord. Anthem "Hear us, O
Lord," was well rendered by the ehoir.
Hymns 800, 870, and 803 would have
been sung better if the congregation
hnd joined more heartily in the singing. The Lord's Supper was administered at the dose of the service, snd
two new members added to the churoh.
