The Montreal Witness points out
for the fint time since it was completed, 29 years ago, a train has
run off the track in the Montreal
bridge, and that this speaks volumes for the care of the Grand
Trunk railway officials and employes.
Tt is exceedingly fortunate that the
accident happened to a slow freight
train and not to a passenger express. In the latter event the
bridge would have been partly destroyed and there would have been a
frightful sacrifice of life.
An amusing instance of hero-
worship is related in London, It
concerns Mr. Gladstone and is told
of a workingman. The latter not
long ago entered a public library
aad asked for a book.. On bains
questioned as to what be would
like, he replied that he wonted
"Oraer." The assistant's next enquiry was whether he would have
a Greek text or a translation, to
whioh he received the following
reply:—"I don't know nothing
about a Greek 'un; what I want is
to read what Mr. Gladstone reads,"
After half an hour's reading (with
his fingers stuck into his ears to
ensure against interruption) he said
he thought it was "rum sort of
stuff," and went out. He has not
since returned to finish it

An exchange says: Prinoe Henry
brother of the German Emperor,
cut a fine figure during bis recent
visit to Copenhagen. A correspondent contrasts him with the
Russian heir apparent, who was
also present, and says:—"Prince
Henry is very fair with smooth
hair, clear eyes, tall, and broad-
chested. Dressed in his glittering
naval uniform, decorated with the
violet ribbon of the order of the
elephant, he looks like a gladsome
figure of light. The Czarevitch is
the exact opposite of the Teuton
sailor prince, Graceful, of medium
hoight, with almond-shaped eyes, a
pale, dark complexion, and close,
cut hair, black as ink, he appears
almost too serious in his simple uniform, although he can be extremely
pleasant and'amiable if he becomes
interested in a subject of conversation."
Tho problem concerned in tho
disposition of prison labour, sayf gn
exchange, is a very perplexing one,
and there has always been a strong
opposition on the part of the working olasses to any system whioh
permits the labour of convicts being
purchased by contractors. In the
recent issue of the Forum Col
Brookway discusses the subject and
takes the occasion to protest against
keeping prisoners idle. He declares
that to prevent the prisoners from
working iB cruel and brutalizing ; it
prevents all possibility of reform,
and indeed is demoralizing, so that
the prisoners are sure to go baok to
society worse than when thoy left
it. Our prisoners are now he says,
for the most part, a curse to the
country. No efforts are put forth
to reform, but only to punish. This
is brutalizing. Tho men at the
head are seldom qualified for intelligent efforts to mako men wiser
and better.    	
The representative Jewish journals of America ore discussing the
expediency of holding the Sabbath
on Sunday. Tho Kew York i-fel-
rew Standard very forcibly says:—
"The business interests, tho inexorable necessity, which compels
hundreds to labour on the Jewish
Sabbath in order to support their
families, have made the observance
of the Sabbath the exception instead
of the rule, Those you oannot
preach to; they do not come to
listen to you. You cannot argue
with them, because your words will
not provide the bread' whioh they
and their families must have." The
Rochester Jewish Tidings boldly
says the change must come. No
doubt one day of worship for both
Jew and Gentile would be to the
advantage of both Christiana and
Jews, and as thero is no Jewish law
forbidding worship on Sunday,
thoro should be no difficulty in
transferring the Sabbath to Sunday.
A Brussels writer in the Wiser-
Xeitung places Mr, Henry M.
Stanley by the aide of Ulysses and
Eneas, and implies that in tne
wanderingsof the modern American,
as in those of tho ancient Greek
and tho Trojan, there was a woman
in the case. Mr Stanley's Oalypso,
or Dido, waa a young English lady
whom he met in his forty-fourth
year, when ho was living in New
Bond street. The hero who has
faced snch stupendous difficulties
was too modest or shy to tell ber
of his love, but confided it to her
brother, requesting him to be his
mediator. He might have remembered the famous old American precedent, of which Longfellow made
so telling a use in his "Miles Stan-
dish." The English lady refused to
tako the initiative; she would
neither decline nor accept tho lover
who had not courage to "speak for
himself," bat promised to think over
the problem, While she was thinking came the call to Stanley to
inarch off to Afrioa for the liberation of Emin. His old love for
Africa revived, and he left tho
English Oalypso deliberating.
UHEAT SLAUdHTEIl OF DXBV1SHES,
Suakim, Deo. 19.—The British have
destroyed an Arab redoubt, the shells
bursting in and around it, hardly giving
the defenders a chance to escape, and
causing great .laughter. A deserter who
hu just como in report, great havoc
among the dervishes crowded in the
trenches.
LADOUCnntE's CABLE.
London, Dec. 19.—A fow weeks ago
I announced the sale ol the Hurtly &
Grand Tulloy estates in Perthshire,
•Mot. eitenda ovor 34,000 acres, to
Mr. Kennedy, of New York, who had
agreed to buy the property from Sir
Douglas Stewart on condition that he
obtained possession in May next. No
sooner had the preliminaries of the
transaction been completed than Sir
Douglas Stewart repented and now declines to complete the bargain, Mr,
Kennedy haa in consequence commenced proceedings in tho court of
sessions to compel him to do so, or if
he finally refuses tho execution of the
contract to pay the sum of £30,000 as
damages. Sir Douglas pleads that his
written consent to the sale was obtained from him in undue and illegal manner, as being eighty-two yean of age,
and, being very infirm in health, yielded to the pressure brought to bear
upon him at a moment when he was
in a high nervous flurry and excited
condition, and therefore weak in mind
and facile to persuade.
LOUD SACKVILtE.
I learn that Lord Sackville, who intends to pass the winter in the Riviera,
will probably be appointed ambassador
to Constantinople next spring when
Sir Wm. White is going to retire on a
pension. Lord Saokville's appointment, however, can only tako place if
the superior claims to the post cf Sir
Henry Drummond Wolf are ignored.
TBII l'KINCE OF WALES A.NKOYED.
I understand the Prince of Wales is
excessively annoyed at the economical
reforms which Bro to be carried out in
the Queen's household. Bis royal
highness foresees that whenever the
demise of the Crown takes place the
civil list will be resettled on a basis of
now arrangement, which will make
a very considerable and disadvantageous difference to tho next sovereign of
theie realms. Many of tho reductions
and reforms whioh will now be csnied

TBE EMPEROR'S PORTRAIT.
Prof, Von Angai, who has just finished his full length portrait of Emperor William, has been summoned
from Vienna to Nice to paint a portrait of au American lady. He was
informed he might name bis own price
if he came on at once.
IN HONOR OP THE CZAR.
Anton Ruinstein has completed tho
cantata which he has composed to celebrate the preservation of the emperor
and empress of Russia in the recent
railway accident at Borki. It will be
performed for the first time at a court
concert to be given uext month at the
Winter Palaoe at St. Petersburg.
THE DIVORCE AOT.
Gladstone intends to occupy himself
during the noxt fow weeks by writing
an article for one of the reviews on
the working results of the divorce act
A BRUTAL SULTAN.
London. Deo. 19.—A despatch from
Zanzibar says the sultan has signalized
Ida return by a remarkable outburst of
fanaticism which bodes no good to the
pesco and safety of his subjects or the
security of European residents. Yesterday morning ho ordered tho instant
beheading ol four natives, charged with
murder, but who had bad no trial.
The sentence was carried out in the
public street with clumsy brutality, and
tho bodies were suffered to welter in
their gore, until evening. The sultan
proposea to repeat thla revolting spec-
taolo every day tor a week, there being
24 men and women under sentence of

MEN Or WAR AOROUND,
Zanzibar, Dec. 19.—PThe German
men of war Leipseg, Mowe, Dogale
and Otrola, and one ship of the
British squadron have been inn
aground on a dangerous reef. The news
comes from the interior that the
Mosaai tribe have entered into a fight
againat the Arusha tribes und are
ravishing and devastating tho country
west of KUimanojaro. This will

What change this makes may be judged
from the faet that capital punishment
has been unknown In the island of
Zanzibar for 25 years. Yesterday's
butcheries, and threats of others to follow, have oauied a profound sensation,
The whites are shocked and tbe blacks
an torrificd. Col. Ewan Smith, British
political agent, haa waited upon the
sultan and remonstrated against these
cruelties. Common action will probably
be taken by the British and other representatives of European powera to prevent their recurrence.
POWERLESS TO   SATE.
Paris, Dec. 19.—The tribunal of
the Seine, having beon urged to aavo
tho Panama canal from bankruptcy,
declared itaelf powerless to interfere

A GREAT OITY.
London. Dec. 19.—Tho Honorable

and the withdrawal of the company's
charter by the queen.

KILLED BY A HOSE CART.
BB'f^^do7'_0_K:~i4i^An aged
man named Willard Hodge* attempted
to cross the street this afternoon while
engine No. 17 was proceeding to a small
fire in Laumeisters flouring mills, and
was knocked down by the hose cart, one
wheel of which crushed his chest. He
died a few minutes later. Bystanders
exonerate the driver of the hose cart
from blame.
UNRULY REDSKINS.
Cleveland, Dec. 14. — During the
Sresentatlon of a border drama at San*
usky to-night by a traveling company,
three Indians engaged in a quarrel in
the dress-UK* room. John Ungerer,
stage manager, Interfered. He was
struck by a tomahawk and shot at
and fired in turn at the Indiana.
He was forced to retreat, and his wife
grabbed bis pistol, discharging a blank
cartridge in the face of one on the Indians, who fired at her three times, inflicting, a slight wound. By this time
the andlenco began to stampedo and four
policemen carried the redskins to prison,
where they were locked np.
SULLIVAN AND KILRAIN.
New York, Deo. 14,—Kilrain has accepted the challenge of Sullivan to fight
to a finish for 010,000 a side. An unknown friend will cover Sullivan's money
to-morrow. The fight will come off in
six months or not at all. Charles Mitchell
will act as Kilratn's manager. The
parties will probably meet in Canada to
arrange the preliminaries, or somo other
place outside the jurisdiction of the United States government. Kilrain's backer
is unknown. Kilrain, after posting his
money, said: "I would not make a match
with Sullivan if I did not think I conld
whip him, and I guess when the battle Is
over people will agree with me that I am
the champion. Sullivan has said some
very hard things about me, but I won't
talk about him now, I'll wait and meet
him in the ring. I know I can do him np,
and III make bim sore for the way he
has used mo." Mitchell declined to say
anything about the match with Dempsey
more than that he would probably make
a match with him to box ten rounds in
the eut and fight him to a finish' in Son
Francisco.

PEACE AT ANY PRICE,
Paris, Dec 18.-Owing to fears that
the Panama canal company's difficulties
may give rise to disorders on the isthmus,
the French government has decided to
send a man-of-war to Colon to protect
French Interest. It is expected the U.S.
will send two.
ASTER THE STORM,
Panama, Dec. 18.—Railroad communication with Colon is still interrupted by
the effect, of the storm. PThe river at
Chagre. rose again Saturday, bat,
although still high, is subsiding. PThe
canal work, were considerably damaged.

more of' smuggled opium. There are

searching for,
courageous senators.
Washington, Dee, 18.—The Republican senatorial canons this morning deoided that the senate would continue
in session without holiday or recess until
the tariff bill is disposed of, letting the
houso take a holiday if it so desires. It
was also decided to hold two sessions
daily, beginning at 11 o'clock a.m. and 8
o'olock p.m.
THE LEADER RETIRES.
London, Dec. 18.—It Is said in the
lobbies of the houso of commons, and
it is generally believed, that Mr. William Smith haa made his laat appearance in the house as the leader of the
government party. It is perfectly
plain to everybody that Mr. Smith ha.
miamansged the business entrusted to
him. Many of the embarrassments
with which the ministry now has to
contend may be ascribed to his over
zeal and lack of tact. It ia tbought
probable that Mr. Smith will accept a
peerage before parliament reassembles,
and that next session will likely hnd
him dosing on the benches of the
house of lords, where hi. opportunity
for doing harm will be almost altogether removed. Tho leadership of the
house will doubtless fall to Mr. Gob-
choir, though many members have already expressed their preference for
Mr. Balfour in that capacity.
A LONDON SENSATION.
London, Dec. 18.—The withdrawal
by the queen of the warrant for the
existence of the Honorable Artillery
Oompany of London, the oldest military organization in England, has
created a tremendous sensation in
military circles. Tho company was
established lu 1737 and has had several offshoots, the principal one of
whioh is the Ancient and Honorablo
Artillery Company of Boston. The
chief cause of the disruption of th.
parent body was an internal squabble
which arose concerning the administration of its finances through the immediate cause was a disagreement with
tho Princo of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, and other officials aa to the
company's joining the regular volunteer foroo involving an abandonment
of its oharter aud a surrender of its
recognized privileges. The organization owns an enormous amount of real
estate and other property in the oity
which will possibly be divided among
tho members if sn agreement as to its
division can bo reached,

In an item yesterday referring to
the Lillooet settlement, attention
was called to the desirability of con
noction by road with this city—a
connection which it most be evident
would be as beneficial to this city as
to the settlement concerned. In
viow of the present importance of
tbe settlement in question, und the
certainty of great development in
that vicinity in the near future, as
shown by the item in this paper
yesterday, there is overy ground for
asking government' assistance fn
building the short piece of road required, and either establishing a
ferry, suitnblo for convoying teams,
on tho Pitt River, or, what would
be better, constructing a bridge to
complete the connection. Thero is
nothing out of the way or exorbitant in this demand. In fact, tbe
settlers on tho north side of the
Fraser have been neglected in the
matter of roads, compared with their
brethren on the south side, whero
there is a trunk road from this city
up to Yale, with several parallel and
intersecting roads through the most
important farming settlements. It
is true the south side of the river
has required more attention, from
the fact of the greater number and
importance of the settlements there
and the larger area of practicable
farming land. But the amount of
good agricultural land on the north
side is extensive, and has only begun
to be developed, and, on account of
the increasing number of settlen and
the growing interests of various
sorts, a trunk road from this city,
connecting ull the settlements on
the north sido of the river, may fair
ly be demanded. A good wagon
road extends from this city to Pitt
River, and from tbe Lillooet settlement, on the other side of Pitt River,
to within a mile nnd a half of that
river. With tlm mile and a half of
road constructed across the flats (and
we are informed that thero is an
unlimited supply of the best road
gravel convenient) and a ferry or
bridge established across Pitt River,
tho most important link in the proposed trunk road will ha vo been completed, as most of the settlements
farther up the Fraser are already
connected by road, and short pieces
of road here and there would establish unbroken connection with this
city and complete the trunk road required. With regard to a bridge
across Pitt River, it is said that the
O.P.R. intend to abandon their present bridge, as not being sufficiently
strong for the purpose, and build a
now one. It has been suggested
that the government might secure
the old bridge for a comparative
trifle and convert it, quite cheaply,
into a good traffic bridge. We trust
that something may be done in the
matter of establishing the connection
we have shown to bo not only do
sirable but necessary, at the forthcoming session of the local legislature. Let our members use their
influence in the matter. It is one
that should interest our citizens,
too,, particularly.
Commenting on Butterwortb's resolution to annex Canada, wholesale
or piecemeal, tbe Seattle Press, in a
very affectionately worded article,
headed "Come to us, our sister,"
characterizes tho resolution ns "very
commendable," and continuing says:
"That a people so closely related by
geographical situation, language,
kinship, custom and laws should be
disunited is indeed very strange.
Why suoh nn order of things should
have existed so long is beyond our
comprehension. But when the matter is thoroughly sifted, we are inclined to think, if presented in a
a straightforward manner to tbo
peoplo of both countries, that they
cannot fail to grasp the mighty advantages that would accrue to both
by commercial union, or even annexation, Through the selfishness of
both nations they have erected a
tariff wall between them, whioh is,
in reality, tho only obstruction that
exists to their being one and the
same people. Let both nations remove those artificial restrictions that
they have placed on each other's
trade and no further legislation will
be needed in the matter. Thoy are
both Christian nations, each professing to bolieve in the doctrines of
Christ: ' Love thy neighbor as thyself,' yet in their relations to eaoh
other they practice an altogether
different code. There is no more
logical reason why the people of
Canada and those of the United
States should have a protective bar-
rier placed between them than there
is for snch barriers to bo placed between the different states of the
union. H it ia an advantage to the
United Statea to hamper and restrict
trade with Canada) and vice versa,
then most sorely ft must be an advantage to Wnshinton Territory to
hamper and restrict trade with the
rest of th* American union. Ina
nation where peoples, laws and customs are so similar, political lines
cannot be Worsted, By all means
let nt have freedom  with Canada,
CWWran Cryfor PltditViCittoria
lot it be annexation, commercial
union or something else." The Tacoma Ledger, discussing annexation,
soya: "Nearly one-half the contents
of every Canadian paper are inspired
by United States events and opinions. Tho British Oolumbia papen
ordinarily contain more news from
this sido of the line and comments
upon it than they do of events occurring within the Dominion. This
country outs n largo figure in Canadian thoughts, prospects and plans,
and the interest is continually increasing. Wo do not want Canada,
but Canada will in time feel it a
privilege to occupy the same bed
with her big brother'" It is becoming quite evident that the annexation of Canada is becoming popular all over tho United States, and
it is no less apparent that our American cousins want nothing less.
Free trade, or oven commercial
union, will not satisfy them—they
want the whole hog, or nothing.
With tho accession of the Republicans to powor, especially, no tariff
reduction may bo looked for between
the two countries, not to speak of
free trade regulations. A measure
of free trade is undoubtedly desirable, and such would havo been
brought about if Cleveland and the
Democrats, with their sensible tariff
reform platform, had carried the day
in the late contest. But, if the Republicans will not establish friendly
and advantageous (to both parties)
trade relations with us, they. seem
determined to havo the Canadian
market free by a method more in accord with their instincts, and which
would enable them to plaoe their
tariff wall all around Nortii America. But Canada will not agree to
anything of the sort. However
much she may appreciate the goodwill of her neighbors and desire to
live in the utmost harmony with
them, she must remain freo to regulate her own commercial and other
relations with the outsido world.
Free trade with the United States
is one thing, and commercial or
political union is quite another.
There are no objections to the general principles involved in .the first.
Tho case is quite different with respect to the last.
Fever and Ague and.Bilious Derangements are positively cured by tbe uso of
Parmelee's Pills. Thoy not only oleanso
the stomach and bowels from all bilious
matter, but tbey open the excretory ves-
sels, causing them to pour copious effusions from the blood into the bowels, after
which the corrupted mass is thrown out
by the natural passage of the body. They
are used as a general family medicine
with the beat results.

dnolyl OLD TOM HEMPER.
I PThe wonderful Providenco that saved
Id Tom Hamper from the vengeance
t the Comanche Indians, 15 or 10 years
bo, has been discussed In many s
■eastern fort and around many ahunters
f.mp fire. The party numbered 22
sen, some of them being English
tunsls, and they were undisturbed for
Ito weeks after getting down to what
l.called the great elbow of the Cans-
lan. Then Indian signs became very
lesb, and one morning old Tom started
lit on a scout Two other old hunters
Blth tho party remained in camp.
lTho Canadian runs alongside of a
■ountain range for soveral hundred
■dies, and this range is broken with
laiiy small valleys and creeks. Tom
lent to the east as he left camp, keep-
Bg between tho foot hills and the river,
lu was on foot and alert, but after a
Balk of an hour he discovered no signs,
■nd had to conclude that tho Indians
lad approached from the other direclon. Just as he was on the point of
"krn'ng back he found a spring of ico-
►ld water, and had to Uo down on his
■oinach to reach it and satisfy his
first. He was drinking when some-
king alighted on his back. His first
Bought was that it was a panther, but
fixt instant he saw the leggings of a
Idskin, snd knew that ho was a prls-
lier. When pulled to his feet ho
lund himself in the presence of threo
Ipmanchea, who wero out after game.
Vis great surprise seemed to please them
Jimonsly, and they offered him no
■iolonce whatever. He was flrat un-
Tuiod, his hands then tied behind his
lick, and the Indians gave hlm to un-
nratand that ho was to accompany
lorn to their village. Whilo thoro
■as no Indian war, at that time, tho
lyoges wore hostilo to any and all
mite men who invaded their domain,
Id old Tom swiftly realized that ho
Fas in a bad scrape. He could speak
hd understand the Comanche dialect
f tli perfect ease, hut this fact he kept
I himself. As they moved away ono
tbls captors sold:
I "Ho is an old hunter, and we shall
[.vo a good time burning him. He is
Tobably the leader of the party be.
w."
,Th* prisoner was conducted about
reo miles up the river and a mile to
0 cast, at which point a Comanche
ilago was located. It was in a valloy
>ou t threo miles long and a mile wide,
1 contained 00 or 70 lodges. Nearly
tho warriors of tho village were away
itching the white party, but as soon
the priaoner entered the villtigo a
'tiscn'er was dispatched to bring
.'in in. Beforo noon oil had returned
id there was groat rejoicing over the
jiture of the hunter. The head chief
the tribe was expected at the camp
Ihe morrow, and it was decided not
<lo anything with tho prisoner until
i arrival.
[Tom 'was shoved Into a lodge and
roe warriors placed on guard ovor
ii. Tom heard the friends discussing
what ways they should torturo him.

no wanted to skin him alivo, another
ilieved in a slow fire,, and almost every
io who came up had a suggestion to
ako. It was conceded that he would
e game, and that his equal had not
•en captured for years.
It was 0 o'clock next morning before
0 big chief and his staff arrived, and
i hour later tlio prisoner was brought
it The warriors had arranged thein-
Ives in two lines, and were armod
ith clubs and switches. Old Tom was
ki'ii to the head of the lines, and a
.irrior who could speak a littlo English
ado htm understand that he .was to
iu to the foot of the line and return,
id that if ho ran fast and strong ho
ould bo sot at liberty on his return,
Piis was all stuff, of course, but it is slays given out to overy prisoner to en-
arngo him. The chief called out to
ie men not to hit the prisoner too
ird, and all was ready for the start.
>in Intended to wheel square about
Id run for the river. There was not
io chance in a thousand for him, but
1 preferred death by the bullet to
inth by torture. Ho was even bracing
luself for his run when thore were
aouts of alarm all around him, and hs
iw two Indian boys coming down
ie valloy on horseback, mailing signs
j they camo. Tom was hurried back
, the lod:*o, tho vlllago was all excite-
ent, and ln five minutes 50 warriors
ere riding up the valloy. Tom figured
lat some of his party wore scouting
pund to learn his fate, and that thoy
nd como into tho valley and had been
ten by tbo village sentinels. This, sa
as sfterwards ascertained, was the
meet supposition.
The Indians did not return until five
clock in tho afternoon, At shout six
d Tom was brought out again, and
lis time he was tied to a stake. For
mo reason tho redskins hsd decided
spare him the gauntlet. This was
om no feeling of mercy, ol course, but
loir long rido had probably tired them
it
"There was no possible show for mo
I make a break!" said the old man.
I was backed up to the stout stake,
ly hands and my feet were tied to it
t strips of green hide, and then they
ere ready to begin business. I saw
lem gcttiug their knives and tonia-
auks ready to throw at me, and in my
esperation and despair I railed out at
icm, speaking the first words since my
ipluro. I reviled and cursed them
■ul dared thorn lo do their worst and
hilo I wns speaking tho sub-chief, who
as the head of the village, and whose
nine was .Spotted Horse, threw up hll
rms ami foil back dead."
The chief was no doubt predisposed
3 heart disease. He had been in tho
S'hll i lor six or seven hours, laboring
n Iw a keen excitement all the time,
nd it needed only the increased excite*
nent brought on by ths hunter's do-
iiincintion to precipitate the fatal stroke,
'hit Iho Indians considered it ansctof
iiviuo vengeance was plain inamo-
ni'iit. It was scarcely known that he
v;.s dosd before Tom was untied and
onductcd back to tho lodge, and the
allugo st ones want Into mourning.
"It wu two days, beforo they burled

He was tied to the same stake, snd
the faggots heaped around him. hut
just as they were being lighted he broke
out iu fierce raillery again. His words
affected the whole crowd, but ho would
no doubt bave perished had not nature
come to his aid. The hush which had
fallen upon the village was broken by s
far-off roar, snd s moment later t
cyclone swept Into the -alley irom the
east like t raging Hon. It came and
was gone la 00 seconds, and s Snd wreck
was left behind. Every lodgo was
down, and many of them oarried sway,
while many, of ihe people were .hurt,
anf two children killel outright, by
falling limbs and flying debris,
"I nevor saw Indians lose their heads
ss Hum.) chops did," said old Tom. "I
wns left quite alone for tho next quarter
of an hour, while those who had. escaped unhurt were running about In A
ehildlsh way. It was jutt growing dusk
when an Indian pony was led up to th}
stnko by tho head chief in person. I
was cut loose by a warrior, lifted upon
tlio pony by two others, and told by tho
chief that I was at liberty to go. I was
too dazed to understand, but they gave
tho horse a slap and sway we went.
For tho noxt 10 minutes I was no better than nn idiot or craiy man, but my
senses soon returned and I saw through
it They regarded me as an evil spirit
and wanted to get rid of me. Hy riflo
was strapped to tho saddle, as was every
other article they had taken from mo,
and they had given me one of their
best horses. Inside of two hours I was
back at our camp, but only to find tho
party gone. They had become nlormod
and moved about 80 miles np tho
stream, where I found them next day."
Tom not only had the Comanche outfit to prove the truth of what he said,
but tho noxt year, when the chiefs of
the tribe hold a pow-wow with a government commission, the entire story was
told anew by tho Indians, and many
Inquiries wero made as to what had become of the whito man's devil.

Mabel Wynne was the village school-
toachor and Robert Dare and she bad
bo™ inttmato friends for years. The
sudden accession of riches, however,
(lid not turn her head or causo hor to
desert her old friends.' She began, howover, to build an elegant house that was
tho talk of the town.
Ono day she stopped at the old Dale
farm, aud Robert Dale was In a flutter
of excitement which he could hardly
conceal.
"I want you two to come up and see
my new house to-morrow. "The Glen'
Is a vory pretty place, you. will find."
Mnbel Wynno stayed and spent the
evening at tbo Dale farm-house. She
and Florrio sang sweet duets to the accompaniment (if Robert's violin. They
tallied of old times and new. And when
nt last Robert returned from seeing Mabel homo Florrio, clapped her hands
gleefully.
"Oh, Rob," she cried, 'Isn't It nice to
have .Mabel hero once more ?"
And Bob's smile did her heart good.
The next day, however, things assumed a new aspect. Robert and Flor-
rie walked up through the wood to tho
beautiful new house whose stained-
glass casement commanded so rare a
view of hillside, woodlands and distant
winding river. Mabel was standing oa
tho portico.
"isow come in," she cried, radiantly.
"Walk through all the rooms with me.
Here is the library—! want Robert's
idea about fitting that up—and hero
are tho drawing-rooms, Florrio and I
must decide about those; for, to
tell you the truth"—tnd tio colcrod
pinki'r than the heart of a rose—"I am

Florrio started back with a little exclamation] Robert stood calm and quiet
as one of the marble statue in tho vestibule.
"Mnrriedl" Florrle cried; "anil not

"Toll me," Bald Mabel, ''shall we furnish tho drawing-rooms in blue and

"You can," he answered, quickly.
I "Como out and look at the sun-dial
on the south lawn," added Mabel.
"Florrle has run upstairs to see the
river from the observatory. We wont
wait for her, because, Bob, I want to tell
you n secret."
"Would not your husband be the
proper person to confide in, May?" ho
asked.
"In this case, no Bob I" she cried.
"Listen to me. I love this man with
all mv soul—this husband that is to be
—and ho loves me."
"-Naturally," observed Robert, setting
his teeth.
"But he does not dare to telt me so.
Ho thinks, don't you see, that I am an
heiress. Woll, so I am; but t am a
woman, nevertheless, and I love him!
Is my wretched money to part us? If
so, I will fling it all into the ocean, and
begin life anew as a beggar-girl. Now,
Bob, what shall I do? It is for this that
I havo sont for you to come here.' Answer me quickly?'"       ■
Toll him aft, said Robert huskily.
"For God's sake, do sot break his heart

"within this hour. "Oh, Robert, Robert I have I said to much?"
"My May, my own darling t" cried
Dale. "And to think that this miserable
false prido of mine failed to measure the
nobility of your virtue I"
When Florrle came down from the
observatory to ths marble sun-dial,
where tho; minutes were measured off
by sunshiue—ah, how appropriate it
seems just now, this division of time—
Bob and Mabel were sitting side by side
on a rustic bench, and there was something in their faces that betrayed the
truth at once.
S,"You have discovered ou* secret lit*
o sister," said he.
Florrio uttered s ery of Joy.
"Oh, May I" she said, 'bit Bob?"
"Could it be anyone else than Bob ?"
Mabel whispered, hor sweet eyea full of
loving light.
And then Florrle, tho mendacious
little gypsy, declared that she had,
known it all along. It wasn't a bit of n

Japanese Jugglers.
The exhibition given at Herring's
Opera House last night by the Japanese jugglers wns the best ever seen in
Westminster. Tho balancing and
acrobatic feats were something wonderful, and the whole audience were
highly pleased with the entertainment.
The ladder act was a wonderful performance and deserves describing.
A ladder 25 feet long is balanced on a
man's chin and a good sized boy ascends and performs all sorts of tricks on
it. Finally when the boy is in the
middle of a trick the ladder falls to
pieces leaving the youth balanced on
a bamboo pole. Had the publio
known that the troupe would present
such an excellent programme the
house would have been packed. The
Japs will visit Westminster again in a
week or ton dayi and repeat the performance.

Tke Olympian In ike Deck.
On Sunday morning the steamer
Olympian was safely docked at Esquimalt, after one unsuccessful attempt
A number of the paddles on the starboard wheel were out off and the cargo
listed to tbe port side to enable the
steamer to pass into the dock, and then
she barely managed to squeeze in. By
four o'olook the water was pumped ont
of the dook and the work of clearing
away the mussels and barnacles, which
were half an inch deep on her bottom,
commenced; one hundred nnd twenty-
five men being engaged to work night
and day until the repairs nre completed.
The work is now being pushed rapidly
forward and it is expected that the
steamer will leave the dock on Wednesday. The bottom is to he scraped,
some minor repairs are to be made to
the machinery and carpentry. The
value of tho work in all will amount lo
about 84,000.—Colonist,

was in the witness-box all day und late
in the afternoon was boing cross-examined by Mr. Pooley, Ho testified
that the defendant waa his agent in
Victoria when lie was doing business
at Quesnelle, whioh is denied by Marvin. Letters were read by counsel
with a view to proving that plaintiff
was in financial difficulties and unable
to support hii family some fifteen
years ago. The case is a long and
complicated ono and will last some

Ono of tho moat hopeful indications,
as well as guarantees, for the future
progress and prosperity of this district,
and implying also a steady increase in
tho growth and importance of this eity,
to which the district as n whole is
tributary, is the unterpriso being displayed in various sections of tho district in reclaiming large tracts of the
richest lands in the province by means
of dyking schemes. About two weeks
ago we recorded the completion of the
Matsqui dyke, throwing many thousands of ncres into immediate availability for farming purposes, which can be
obtained by bona fide settlers nt a mod-
orate rato. Yesterday we called attention to the Pitt Meadows dyking
scheme, to be completed fn about five
years, which will be the means ot reclaiming between twenty nnd thirty
thousand acres of fine land for settlement, In addition to these, is the
Surrey-Delta dyking enterprise, which
is being pushed, with commendable
energy by tho settlors in those municipalities interested, who havo almost
unanimously agreed to assess themselves 82 per aero for the land owned
by them respectively which would bo
benefitted by tho projoetod dyke. Tho
Dominion government are to be asked
to assist tho undertaking, at the coming session of parliament, and as the
navigation of certain streams will be
greatly benefitted by the dyke in question, thero is but very little doubt that
they will take the matter in hand.
This dyking sohome will add between
twenty and thirty thousand acres of
choice arable land to the extensive
agricultural resources of the' district.
The outlook is certainly encouraging
for Westminater city and district
