aud a Host of Spectators, Notwithstanding' the Rain.
The Game Results in a Draw, Two
to Two, after a Very
Hard Struggle.
Tho-great lacrosse match, for the
championship of British Columbia nnd
tho Alhnmbra oup, an event that has
agitated nil classes of society for leveral weeks, was played this afternoon on Queen's park, in the presence
of aeveral thousand people. It is safe
to Bay no athletic event of the past, iu
British Columbia, has approached thia
one in intereat and excitement. Both
the Westminster and Vancouver clubs
have been practicing steadily for two
weeks, and both took the field iu the
pink of condition. If anything, the
Vanoouver men seemed a trifle overtrained.
The 2:10 train from Vanoouver,
which was a little late,brought in quite
a number ot friends of the "terminal
city team," who made a speedy rush for
the grounds, A lot of Vancouveritea
came in earlier in the day, and the total number of tbe visitors would have
have been muoh larger but for the unfortunate drizzlo which set in just before the match and continued throughout the afternoon.
Many places of business were closed
for a fow houn this afternoon on account of the great match, and the city
had somewhat of a holiday (or Victoria) aspect, through thu unusual de*
parture.
The excitement throughout the
matoh was intense, and every brilliant play was greeted with wild bursts
of applause.
Mr. E. M. Matthews, of Victoria,
was chosen referee. When placed on
tho field the positions of the men wero
as follows:

■ the rubber and shot on goal. Game
wis called and umpire Morrow gave
his decision in favor of Vancouver,
thus making the match a draw by two
to two. Whether the ball went
through the flogs or not will always
be a disputed question, but had
game been played in daylight
Westminster would have won the
match without a dispute. The royal
city team haa justly won the title of
champions,

FIRST GAME.
Gow and Law faced and Stewart got
the ball outof the acrimmage and threw
on goal. It was stopped by Suckling cleverly and thrown down fiold,
where it waa passed round generally
for a few minutes. The ground was
very slippery with the rain and the
men had great difficulty keeping their
feet and consequently the ball was not
long on any stick. After the second
face on right field Stewart took the ball
out of the acrimmage, pissed to Cambridge, who cooly ihot ft between tbe
Vancouver flagi, winning fint game for
Westminster in 12 minutes.
SECOND GAME.
The second game waa short, sharp
and decisive. After the ball wss faced
it quickly flew towards the Vancouver
flag. On and after a little field play,
in which the Westminstor men shone
brightly. Cambridge got the rubber,
passed to Ryall, who dropped it in
front of the flag. Hill picked it up
and passed it through the stick, winning second game for Weitminster in
two minutes.
third game.
The ball travelled down to Westminster's goal where Quigley got it on
aidefield and threw it in front of tbe
flags where Whyte got it and relieved
the pressure. A face followed and the
Vanoouver flags were soon in danger.
Cambridge got a good chsnee but
slipped and the ball was captured by
Suckling, who threw down field and
for the tint time the Westminster flags
were in danger. But Cullin wss impregnable and sent the rubber baok.
Some splendid all round play followed
und the ball travelled from one end of
the field to the other at a lively rate.
The crowd kept crowding inside the
enclosure snd the game was called
while the police cleared the field.
When tbe ball waa faced again tho
game went slightly in favor of Vancouver and the Westminster sticks were
leveral times in danger Finally Mo-
Lean got the ball,paised it to Simpson,
who threw on the flags. Cullen
was on hand, however, and would
have saved the game, but tho gut of
hia stick broke and the ball passed
through and scored first game for
Vancouver.   Time 20 minutes.
FOURTH GAME.
After tbo usual interval the ball
was started again. The excitement
now was at fever heat and the friends
of Vancouver looked more hopeful and
wero even willing to risk money at the
odds of two to one. The ball first wont
down to the Westminster flags where
Suckling got it and threw on goal
but Cullen sent it back. The rubber
went up to the Vancouver flags and
several hot shots were only aaved
by hard work and good play. Again
the ball travelled baok to the Westminister flags, when the Vancouver
homo and Westminster defense did
splendid work, particularly the former. Finally Whyte relieved the
strain by taking the ball from three
Vancouver men and sending it down
the field. During a scrimmage near
tho WestminBter flags, Capt. Polley,
of the Westminster team, called foul,
Stewart called time, and McGregor
told him to "shut up." Stewart aaid
he would not, and McGregor struck
him with his fist. Stewart returned
the blow and in an instant a little melee was in progress. Blows were
freely exchanged with fist and stick.
The police and crowd aoon quelled the
row, and McGregor wss ruled off the
field. After the trouble was over tho
Westminster men played a much
stronger game and hsd matters pretty
muoh their own way for a time. It
was getting dark and the umpires de*
clared they could not see the ball.
Timo was called and some minutes
were lost ln discussion. Ths
game was finally resumed and
again the ball hovered close to
the Vancouver flags occasionally going
down field bnt repeatedly sont baok.
It was now getting dark and it was

Tbe Ocean Dock.
Mr. K. P. Rithet _ chief business
during his present stay in Viotoria is
that of arranging tho details for extending and adding to the whrrfage at
the ocean dock so that steamci a of any
class may be accommodated. The plan
is to build a stone wall fron n poiut
south of tho present outer wlinrf for a
distance of 400 feet. This would furnish a depth of over 30 feet of water at
low tide, which would be.mplefor
docking the China steamships if they
were built as intended, or larger. The
basin formed by the two long piers
would provide a large area of wator
and docking facilities, and it would be
posaiblo to discharge thero all sailing
ships coming to the port in-stoad of
bringing them into the inner harbor.
With the large addition to the steamer
fleet contemplated by local and foreign
companies, it is probable that all the-
inner harbor accommodation will be
required for them next year.
The survey for tho outer harbor improvements will be made at onco, and
everything got in readiness for early
construction in the spring. The im*
provotnentr.with the present dook, will
tumjah about 26,000 foet of wharfage,
Sufficient for a very Iargo ocean traffic,
whilo the inner harbor will be capablo
of meeting the requirements of the fast
increasing local traffic. The completion of the outer duck improvements
will do away with any question about
lack of facilities for the China steamer
service, and as Mr. VanHornc has assured the people of Victoria through
the press, and by letter, that they will
call, next year we may look for a very
lively appearance at the ocean dock.—

Tho governor-general arrived in
Vanoouver to-tlay sst 1:30 p. m., and
was given a grand reeeption by tlio
loyal Vanoouverites. After tlio reception programme hisd loon curried
ont, tho governor-general and Lady
Stiinkv left by special trails for this
oity, svhere they will bo the guests
of Bishop Sillitoe until Monday
morning, when tho vico-rcgal party
will return to Vancouver, leaving
that city on Thursday morning next
for Victoria, where olaborato preparations aro being made for their
reception. Tho date of bis excellency's official visit to the royal city
has not yot transpired, but Mayor
Townsend will ascertain it definitely
to-night. We might say it is certain that it will not be before November Gth, and svill probably be
about that date. Next Monday
night the council will bo in possession of all necessary information
with respect to the governor-general's futuro movements, and will be
in a position to formulate a programme for the vice-regal reception
such as will do honor to the illustrious representative of her most
gracious majesty and credit to the
royal city, whioh claims no less a
personage tban the queen herself as
imperial godmother. Westminster
will have at the least nearly two
weeks yot to arrange for the reception to the governor-general, and
every citizen should take an interest
in seeing that the royal city sustains
its high reputation for loyalty, heartiness and tact on such occasions.
In diseases of the heart, says a
medical journal, which persist for a
long timo and finally end—as u very
large proportion of them do—in
■low decline and a lingering death,
dropsy always sets in. In the lnte
stages it is a most intractable symptom, and odds greatly to the suffering expes-ienced. In tho treatment,
physiciatss have been svant to depend
largely upon a diet of milk, which,
in cases svhere it is well borne und
can bo persisted in, always nets
well. But there are many patients
who, for various reasons cannot be
kept on a milk diet for any length
of time. To somo it becomes abhorrent after a while, and others cannot r-sally digest it properly, as
simple food as it is and, besides that,
a milk diet is unsuited to no small
proportion of patients affected with
con ia: disease. Reference is had
to t'loso svho cannot be kept quiet,
but who insist upon being up and
about, often in tho open nir, if not
engaged in light duties. Prof. Gor-
mai- .See, of Paris, has long been engaged in study to leurn what ele-
mei.ts in milk rendered it such an
admirablu agent to stimulate the
kidneys, increase the How therefrom,
and hence prove of suoh great- service in dropsies. As a result of his
investigation he is convinced that
the one important element is sugar
of milk. Acting upon tho theory,
he selected tvonty-tive patients with
heart disease, in all of which there
was moro or less dropsy. To each
he gavo 100 grammes of the .sugar
of milk a day, dissolved in two
quarts of water. In nil these cases
a marked effect upon the kidneys
was felt within twenty-four to forty-
fivo hours, and tho dropsies diminished rapidly, and almost all such
swellings disappeared altogether after a series of treatments lasting
■ from six to eight days. This discovery ia likely to prove one of the
most important which has been
made in the medical svorld foryears.

objects in view: In how many directions can they whisk the said

Most of these delegates, it may be
illumed, are college bred, and had
their fill of sophomoric spread-eagleism during that trying period of
their existence. Most of them,
doubtless, had run tho gauntlet of
swell dinners in their native lands.
Any of them, probably, could have
-taken in the charm of travel by railroad after one day's experience, and
with an interval of rest. Apart
from the broad objects of this conference, it is presumable that those
people came here principally to
study our institutions and the sources
of our material progress, if left to
follow the bent of their own curiosity nnd inclinations, most likely
no two of them would pursuo tlso
same course, or the same line of investigation. As a result it would
bo reasonable to expect quite a number and variety of independent and
original conli'ibutions to tho world's
literature, and many suggestions of
value to their own and our peoplo.

strange want of confidence in accumulators existing among those who

follicles, making the hair very brittle so that it breaks off to the skin,
whon tho roots themselves are attacked. Complete baldness can bo
prevented only by destroying the
microbes early in tbe disease, which
Dr. Saymonne asserts can bo done
by rubbing into the scalp once a
week a mixture composed of ten
parts of crude cod-liver oil, ten parts
of the expressed juice of onion,!, and

In tlio last issuo of tho "Proceedings of
tho Royal Geographical Socioty," London,
tlioro ia tin unusually interesting article on
" tho Niger Delta" in Africa, of whicli tlio
following synopsis has beon mado for the
Now Yorli Ledger:
Tho Jjos represents to-day tho ruling people of the cxtroino lower Niger, of Brass,
of Now Calabar, Bonny and Opobo. In
times past tbey wero fanatic adherents of
a Etivngo typo of animistic religion. Liko
the ran jority of tho Africans, they did not
.mow or conceive of the existence of ono
supi-emo God, hut embodied a number of
iiQturiil principles in tho forms of certain
a'nimuls, or inn concreto representation of
".-..ii-bes" or idols.
lSncli little community had its "totom,"or
Bat-red animal, in whoao species thonnccs-
I nil spirit—tho soul of tlio tribe, so to
speak—was supposed to dwell. Thus in
Uniss thoy worshiped the python snake; in
Honity tho monitor lizard. Only nino or
ten years ngo this animal worship was so
real that tho British authorities in the Oil
Rivers woro compelled to afford it a certain amount of recognition. Europeans
wero forbidden to kill tho sacred lizard of
Bonny, or tho still moro sacred serpent of
Urass, and wero heavily lined by their Consul if thoy infringed this prohiDitiou.
On ono occasion, in Brass, munoten or
twelve years ago, tin agent of Messrs. Hut-
ton-fctjookson's lirm fouud a iargo python
in his house nnd killed it When tho misdeed oecamo known the Brass poopio made
a descent ou tho factory, dragged the agent
out oftho houso onto tho bench, tied him
up by his thumbs, spat in his tumuli, and
inflicted othor indignities ou him. Then
they broko opon tho store, and took out
£20 worth of goods, which thoy confiscated.
Tlio British consul, hearing of tho "disturbance, arrived iu Brass, considered llio case,
and was unable to nfford tho agent any re*
-Iress. bcciiiiRo he was mipposcd to have
brought lhc punishment upon himself.
At Bonny tho monitor lizards became a
sicken in "j nuisance. Thoy devoured tho
Europeans1 fowls, turkeys, ducks and goose
with impunity; they might lio across the
road or doorways of houses with their six
feet of length, nnd savagely lash tliosliins
of peoplo who attempted to pass thom with
tliolr whip-like serrated tails, and if yon
wounded or killed ono of them, thero was
no end of a to-do. you were assaulted or
robbed by tho natives, harangued by tho
Consul on hoard of n man of war, and possibly fined into tho bargain.
In other parts of tho delta it might ho the
shark, or tin: crocodile, or some water-bird
that was worshiped, but nowhere was this
zoolutryca-Ticd to greater lengths than at
Bonny antl I Jntss. For its effectual abolishment, which hu.. becn'of the greatest benefit
to thcweH-ueingof Europeans and natives
aliko, wc otvi* onr thanks not to Uio intervention of naval or con aula, officials, norto
tlie bluff remonstrances of traders, butto the
qiiiot, iitmeasiug labors of the agents of tho
Church Missionary Socioty, who, by winning the nntivos from theso absurd practices, lmve brought about such a'change of
affairs that now tho python is promptly
killed at Brass whenever it makes its appearance, and tlio monitor lizard is relegated to tho woods and swamps. Indeed,
ns regards tho latter animal, thero war*
*hcr a curious revolution of feeling.
About four yenrs ago, when Bonny Town
was infested with numbers of those great,
sluggish lizards, tho missionaries screwed
the courage of the Bonny converts (who
then meant almost tho entire population of
tho place) to lho sticking point. A grand
slaughter of lizards was arranged to tako
place on Easter Bunday. As soon as tho
morning belle of the mission church rang
out a largo number of Bontiy men and
boys armed themselves with matchetfl and
sticksaml commenced tho slaughter of tho
lizards. By tlio end of the day thoro was
not ono loft alive in lho town, and so great
were tho numbers slaughtered that the
stench almost brought about.a sickness, and
for four or flvo days tbo town was unapproachable.
But in slaughtering the lizards much else
Oftho old superstition seemed to go, ami
that event marked tho roal revolution, and
a turning towards better things on lho part
of tho Bonny poopio. A change almost similarly abrupt put an end io tho pyl hon worship at Brass. Boforo tlmt timo, if a
python seized a child iu the slreet iu Its
coils and slavered it with ils vicious saliva,
tho mother—so far from interfering to savo
it—must stand by and call ont hor thanks,
and summon her friends nnd relatives to
rejoice with hor that tho god-python hnd so
honored hor family as to devour her child.

An old man sat on tho edgo of the string*
pieco of alSouth Btreet dock ingenious!?
, splicing a hawBor, and hie only companion
wns a short, black clay pipe, from whioh he
; puffed spasmodically clouds of rank plug
I tobticco smoko with much energy and satisfaction. His age, says tho Now York
Tribune, was about sixty; his balr long and
j ™W» and about his withered but kindly
countonanco there were many signs of the
hardships and privations he had experienced during "a life ontho ocean wave." -
\ ct his appearance was not particularly
mimical, aside from a sou'wostern and a
' few brass buttons whicli adorned an an-
' cicnt "reefer." Nor would he have attracted much attention had it not beon for an
old-fashioned wooden leg whioh was devoid
of all external covering below tho kneo except a coat of white paint. It was, moreover, his right leg or a necessary substitute for that useful member, and consisted
I seemingly of a straight piece of timber
' which tapered very awkwardly down from
liia leneo into a thiok brass ferule at the
bottom. -'.  *■: . -" :.-*,-Hft*:
There was no crutch' bosido him, and tho
reporter was curious to know how ho managed to get about the deck of a vessel with
such a primitive-looking limb, when ho rose
from hiB occupation aad hobbled vigorously
over tt, narrow plank from the dock to the
f deck of a rakish-looking llttio Bchooner,
with a remarkable cat-like agility. Then
along the dook aud down into the Eliza
i An no's cabin tho tall, angular and eceen*
I trie figure disappeared for a few moments,
I returning to his work with a largojack-
;' knife, with which ho proceeded to trim off
f tho wasto or ragged ends of a neat splice. >
I    "Kinder spry, for an old fellow with a
i timber leg—ain't II" he observed, noticing
tho writer had been watching him. ***!$$&
.    "You are, indeed!" empahatlcallyTre-
i sponcted tho astonished reporter, taking a
scat by his side, wMgtftk
i -'Yes, and fow on'em's smarter nor me
| to tliis day at sea—as I always says to my
■oldest son, Bill, who owns partof that there
tschooner. But, of course, I ain't up tc
■much seating a riggin' or going aloft nowa-
* days—which was tbe cause of my losing my
' right leg, and subsiquant adoptin1 of this
boro apparattusB."
"How long have you worn it!"
"Thirty—yeB, thirty-two years ago laBt
October, I was Mowed off the yardarm of
Citp'n Samuel's poorless clipper ship, the
Dreadnaught—going to the east'ard. There
\■ wis a gale, and all hands wero piped up to
\1 re of and shorten sail, whan tho fust thing I
pknow I kinder lost me footing on tho'stir-
' iu-19' of tho lower forctopsoil yard and was
tin-own on deck."
■•And-1-
"And this here log that used to bo was bo
, badly broken that it had to be amputated at
thu kneo tlie next day by the ship's Burgeon,
i nmi when wo arrived in Liverpool I was
• taken to the Seamen's Hospital and laid up
1 for roi wirs.
"Then," continued tbe ancient mariner,
' after regarding this wooden extremity with
much admiration for levoral moments, "I
became acquainted with another crippled
i sailor who died ot consumption.    'Take
this, Joe,' says bo, pointing to this hero log,
1 'Tain't much, I know,' says he, 'but may bo
useful when you got well' aud with that ho
died." -"—
"Didltiitf"
"Yes, to a T, and one day I was examln
ing of its wonderful mechanical coostruc-
\ tion inside, wlteu I found beneath a secret
< plug in the hollow part of the leg hero a
: wad of bank notes tbat took my breath
1 away. Two hundred and fifty pounds, sir,
as truo as I'm Cap'n Joseph Baltus, of
Glo'stor,"
"What did I do with 'em! Why, bless
your heart, put 'em back again and nover
let ou to nobody I'd found 'om for fear (In a
.confidentialwhisper) bis poor relations'd
bear of tho discovery and expect me to set-
' tie up. Then, after I had been in tlio hospital two months, 'Cap'n Sam' visited mo
personally, kind soul land insisted on my
■ .chimin* to his ship and accepting of a job
in tho galley. My cruise as assistant cook
aboard tho old Dreadnaught came mighty
near ending in a watery grave."
"How waa that?" __ ,   .
"You see we were tofnanp Mow-York,'
and just off the banks got into a calm, and I
thought I'd try my luck Ashing, So I took a
big cod hook and line ond Bat on tho for'avd
rail, bolting tbe book with a wholo clam,
and, after tying tho line to this wooden appendage for a fishing pole, cast out to starboard for a bite. I sat thoro for a wholo
hour and was almost asleep, when nil of a
sudden there camo such a tug that I went
overboard, Xt was a whale. Just when I
oxpeeted to bo Bwallowed wholo liko Jonah
something gave way und I wns picked up on
thu port sido of tho ship. Tho worst of it
wns there wasn't but ono man aboard who
. believed a whale bad pulled me overboard.
"You seo most of tho crew woro asleep,
and to mako matters worse-mo and thematc,
a mun who rofused to eat my applo dump*
lln's, wasn't extra friendly, and ho swore
that I waB df unk at tho timo, which assertion most on 'om bellovod until we arrived
off Sandy Hook and discovered a dead
whale/'
"Another!"murmured the astonished roporter, preparing to hear a fresh whale
story, ,bI -.-
' "No," interrupted the Captain, with an
artful wink, "the same whale that I hooked
off the Banks."
"But how did you know it!"
"Why, by the lino that was hanging out
of its mouth with this hero leg attached to
it, of courso." -*
"What, you lost your leg, then!"
"Yes, for the time boing, and I was
mighty lucky I had one to lose, for I might
have lost my life if I hadn't parted with my
leg,"
"Truo I  But what killed tho whole I"
"Tho elam," insisted tho Cap'n, "whioh
was tho biggest and toughest clam I ever
sow beforo or sinco I baited that book in the
spring of '68 on board the Dreadnought.
But the thought of that whalo always makes
mo dry," concluded tbo Cap'n, bracing his
buck against a mooring spile, and twisting
his wooden log until that oocontrio member
was disjointed at tbo knee, ..---*
Then, after poor ing Into Its internal mysteries with one eye shut, as If looking
through a telescope, ho extricated a bag of
ennvas, which, whon tenderly unfolded,
contained n large black bottlo, which ho
gazed at with unmistakable reverence, and
turning to his amused companion with a
sly twinkle in bis starboard eye, sold:
"Great scheme, ain't it! A wine cellar
bank, and safe doposit vault all io one, and
nobody, not oven my old woman, ablo to get
nt its valuable contents. Take a nip."
AN  ARTISTS TRIALS.
The Reason of His Failure to Satisfy
Wealthy Country Customer.
"Bpeaking of cranks," said a portrait
pain tor to it Now York Sun roportor, "the
artist, I behove, is the recipient of the at*
tentioiisof moro of tho species than any
oilier profession. Not very long ago a man
wroto mo from a courttry town, onctoslng a
photograph and asking that a painting bc
made from It, He volunteered tho pleasant
news that ho had recently becomo engaged
to tho handsomest girl In the distriot, and
thnt tho girl wanted his picture. There
wasn't auy thing slowabout him, so ho determined to have a portrait painted for hor,
Ho requested me to mako tho mustache
iii-igor than in tho photograph, and the
cht-oks just a trifle fuller.
"It was a cash order and I filled lt with
care. I flattered myself that whilo I made
tho changes requested, I had faithfully ro-
tninad the expression of tho photograph,
Novorthelcss, the painting did not suit. The
lntiii sont mo baok tho photograph, and askod
mo try to it over. He explained that his
■girl didn't liko it.' Ho offered no othor
hint of why tho painting did not suit, I was
conscious thnt I bad mado an excellent liko
ncus; but, nevertheless, bent on giving
satisfaction, I made another copy with groai
caro. I was confident that this would still
tho most fastidious tasto. But It appeared
not. Along cumo another loiter no
oompaiiicd by the photograph, asking mo lo
try it over. Tho lottor said: 'My giW
don't like it.'
I was vexed, I wroto that tho copy was
as perfect as brush and paint could mako it,
that I didn't covo to paint excopt from tho
original any wny, and that I could not afford
to mnko threo paintings for tho prico of ono,
and didn't propose to do it. Igota prompt
reply. My country client wrote that ho was
rich and bound to pleaso his girl. Ho said
to paint another at the same prico and Bond
it along. Ho onclosed monoy and I laid
myself out ou that portrait. Iwas getting
tired of tho faco. Boon after I sent that on
I got a fourth lotter with tho samo request.
It didn't suit his girl. Bho said it .didn't
look liko him, and ho was bound to got n
picturo tor her that looked liko him if ho had
lo mortgage his farm.
"I was enraged. I wroto him to comedown and seo mo. Two days afterward n
countryman camo into the offlco nnd asked
forme. When I introduced myself ho be
gan to Bmilo In tho most ridiculous manner.
,"' And wlto aro youl' I asked, wondorm*;
what new kind of a crank I had struck.
" -Don't you know mo!' ho asked.
." 'Not from Adam,' snid I.
" 'Why I'm Hozokiok Brown, whoso pictur
you've been a palutin.'
'"You, Mr. Brown I'I exclaimed, 'why
you don't look nt all liko your photograph.'
" * My photograph)' bo1<4 he, * why
that won't my photograph. That was my
brother's. But then ma Bays wo both look
'xactly liko. 'xcopt that my moustache Is
longer ond my cheeks fuller. I never hnd
no photograph inado, so I Bent you hls'n tin'
told you how to lix it. But say, now I'm
down here, you might as well paint ono oft
o' mo, nnd seo if for onct you can paint ond
to suit tho little gal.'
"I painted it, und havo novor heard from
bim or his girl sinco, ln stupidity tho follow was only excelled by the countryman
who onco Bent nto a photograph of tho iron'
of his lici-se, and wanted it painted Into ti
fine picture. Hocnsunlly added that thero
was nn cleg-ant verandah round nt tho back
of tho houso that you couldn't seo In tho
photograph. Ho wanted tho copy mado so
you could seo that verandah."
VICTORIA'S  FOOTMAN.
A Good Story or Lord Melbourne, Once
Frluio Minister or England,
In tho days whon Princo Albert had come
to woo tho Queen of England the crowd of
peoplo who wished to catch a gliinpso of
royalty as it promenaded upon the terrace
ot Windsor Castlo was greatly increased
by reason oftho general interest in tin-
young couplo. Ono dny a Yorkshtroman,
who hnd determined to get a good look nt
tho Qucon, appeared at the gates by whicli
the spectators wero usually admitted, mvA
thus accosted a man, a fpotman evidently,
who wns at that moment crossing tho courtyard:
" Look here, John, Robert, whatever thoy
coll you, I cooin froth the country.*'
So I hear," snid tlto footman,
Well, I'vo never seen t' Qucon, and I
want to get a good Bight of her. Now, can't
you just lot me through them gates, just.
afore *t rost o' t* folks! Iwnnt to gotu good
plnco, yo see."
" Woll, sir," said tho mnn, "I don't know
whether ldtiro. I might Iobo my placo, you
soo.",
Nny, mun, thou'U never loso thy plneo
for such a thing ns thnt. Thou can sny to
t Queen that sho hasn't got a moro loynllct-
subjoct than John Stoko, not in ull Yorkshire. I nobbut want to go in just aforo 't
rost on 'om."
"Well, come along, then," said tho man.
He opened the goto and the eager York*
Bhlroman rushed through. As ho did so an
Idea seemed to striko him, and ha stopped
to tondor the footman a half crown.
"No, thank you, sir," salt! the man, "wo
oro forbidden to tako fees."
"Tako it, mun, lako it, Nohoddy'llktiow."
"No, thank you, sir."
Tho Yorkshireraan secured n foremost
placo, and in duo timo appeared lho Queen
and Princo. Moro than that, conversing
familiarly with hor Majesty was tho footman.
t( Just look tlioro!" cried tho country via-
Itor to o bystander.   " He's a laughing and
talking to t' Queen liko any thing I"
Who!"
Why t' chap that opened mo tho gate-
t* footman—him wilh tho bluo coot and rod
collar."
When tho listener's laughter would allow
Uim to speak, ho oxplameU:
Blue coat and red collar! Why that',
tho Windsor uniform, and your footman is
Lord Molbourno, tho Primo Ministcrl"
AT SECOND HAND.
A Han'™ 1'iihhIou for Hooks nud u lloy'x
I'-v1 .ion of Bart-T.
"Thoro used to bo ono man," said the
second-hand man to a Lcwiston (ilo.)
Journal roportor, "who camo down to soo
me vory ofton. Ho hasn't boen around for
a mouth, and I think must have movctj
away. Ho won a quoor chap, nnd no m intake about it. Ho worked in tho Auburn
shoe factories, and, I've heard Bald, mado
good wages. But he had n liking for old
books, and about ovory woek ho visited my
library out thoro in tho corner in scai-ch of
something now that was old. His great
hobby wo3 books pertaining to ngri.uliuro,
If ho could get hold of any of those Board,
of Agriculturo roports ho was just happy,
To mo,thoy aro dry reading, but with him
thoy were food of keen relish. I giioas lie's
moved off uow, but ho must havo tv mighty
collection of old hooks witli him, He has
bought onough in my storo to supply all tho
formers in tho State with agricultural statistics."
At this point in lho conversation n small
hoy camo in. He hail in his hand a pair of
skates. Ho wanted to trade them lor a
Bled. "Do you know that ovory boyi-*-*,
born trader!" asked tho man of stories,
nftortho boy had gone out. "Yoa, sir. by
tho time o boy Is flvo years old hu begins to
trado and dicker and swap. It's general,
audi novor bow a boy who wasn't so inclined. They'll dicker nny thing. 1 havo a
chanco to seo somothing of it. Befure ico
ond snow camo they wero ull craay for
marbles, and they'd swap any thing for
them. Later it was skates thoy wauled,
and now the skating has gone they're trying
to swup thoir skates for Moils. So it goes.
Every thing in its season. It's fun to watch
thom maneuver. Some of thom nro pretty
bright follows and mako somo sharp
trades."

liryan O'Lynn had no boots for to wear,
So he came to Westminster to buy him a pair.
" I'll have one pair of thick ones and one pair of thin,
If I can find J. Rousseau's," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He hunted the stores all along the main route,
Says he, "The right one I've not yet found out.
I want j. Rousseau—I'll buy only from him,
For he sells the cheapest," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He stepped a little west of McKenzie street,
He met Rousseau's sign—sure it was a great treat;
He lifted the latch, and Jim stood within.
" I've found it at last," says Bryan O'Lynn.
We showed him both Calf Boots, Kip and Cowhide,
The ones we praise mostly, without seams at the side.
We have Boots of all kinds, from Quebec and Berlin;
" Sure you have boots for the million," says Bryan O'Lynn,
He bought him his boots, which of course were no trash,
He paid down the money, for we sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "Be not taken in,
But buy from J. Rousseau," says Bryan O'Lynn.
"If there is a leak in the toe or side of your shoe,
Just take it to Rousseau, that's all you need do;
He will peg it or patch it just while you are in,
And the charge seems like nothing," says Bryan O'Lynn,

The special constable on duty last
night on Agnes street and Royal avonue had ti lively experience with a
man who showed strong burglarious
symptoms. This individual wus first
seen on Mary streot about 2 a. in., and
on tho approach of tho constable he
made off ns fast ua ho could run, passing down Cunningham atreot, nnd hus
finally lost in the darkness. About
3:30 a. m. n loud yell startled the
neighborhood of Mary Btreet, near Agnes street, and tho constable harried
in thnt direction and saw tho same
man, whom he had chns-fd au hour before, running along Prevost street.
Again tho constable gave chase, but
tho burglar, or footpad, was Hoot, nnd
made good his escape. The loud shout
that was heard evidently came from
some person who was stopped by tho
footpad, and, if so, tho lusty voico of
the challenged party did Justus good
service as a six-shooter, Tha police
are on tho track of this rascally individual, and his arrest is liable to bo
made at nny moment,

glared unspeakable things at the Chinese and immediately tilted up the

spoke, "Really, y1 know, captain, thero

A document arrived frum Poit
Moody yesterday, accompanying Mr.
Cham Gow, a Chinese chichen thief,
which fur simplicity of construction und
wonderfully wrought justice has probably never boon equalled. In order
to understand tho document»littlo explanation is necessary. Hung Yen
keeps chickens nt Pott Moody, and
Chum Gow stolen number from him.
Cliam Guw wan arrested and the
charges iigaiint him proven by witnesses. Tho presiding magistrate,who,
by the way, had no jurisdiction, sentenced the offender to six montha in
gaol with hard labor, and followed this
up by committing Hung Yon, against
whom there was no charge, to stand
his trial at ihu assizes for no offence
whatever. It would seem from this
Uut the magistrate considers tho unfortunate complainant a greater criminal than the thief. Following is
a truo copy of tho amusing and wonderful document:
Whereas was this  duy
charged before me of Her Majestres Jus-
tries of the Peace in and for the said
District of New Westminster on tho oath
of Hung Yen and othors for that "the
Cham Gow steal chickens from soveral
pnrtys and the sain pruven by savrel
partes the otor cases to be poven hear
after in tho mantime his santanco is aix

These nro therefore to command you
the said Constables or Peace oflicers or
any of you to tike the said Hung Yen
and hiin safely convey to tho common
gaol at new Westminster aforesaid and
there to deliver him totho Keeper thereof together with this precept and do
hereby command you the said Keeper of

Tiie Professor nt llie lln-nt-fatt Table.
The most distinguished passenger
aboard the stoamor Islander, bound
from Victoria tj Vancouver on Friday
morning, was, undoubtedly, Professor
Herrmann, tho groat prestidigitatour,
or, us our American cousins sny,
"logordomainist." Whon the professor sat down to eat hia breakfast in
the palatial saloon all the othor broak-
fasters (thero wore not many) had to
hungrily regret that thoy wero not "up
in tricks" nor great at anything. The
entiro intellectual, moral, spiritual and
physical force of evory waiter in the
room was turned to the professor.
Thoy stared at him, simpered at him,
gaped nt him, poked their heads round
corners nnd gazed ut him j walked unnecessarily past him nnd ran great
risks of damaging their optic economy
in taking a complete and soul-satisfying "glowoi" at him. Wns the professor, coflbo 'out. A wild Balak*
lavan chnrgo was mad, to replenish it;
did tho professor rub the back of his
head, every window in tho saloon was
instantly shut nnd the steam turned on
Btill furthor; was the butter or the
sugar too far away, frightfully hairbreadth chances uf dislocated necks
enBued in tho holter skelter melee
among tho waiters to push it closer to
tho professor. They hovered around
him like shades} they made savago and
"malice aforethought" onslaughts on
trespassing flies at the other end of the
table and looked for commendation, or
a Victoria Cross for their incredible
heroism to the professor. They always addressed him in whispers, and
tho man who spoko was always supported by n orowd of his colleagues.
The chiof flunkoy—beg pardon 'twas a
a slip of tlio pen—tho waiter at last
approached the professor with awful
solemnity clothing him to his very
napkin," a chosen band of brother
flunkies escorting him. Bending over
the professor,tho following blood-curdling speech was ovorhenrd by the
spectators: "There is somo nico hot
toast bein' made for yer, professor,"
That was all, but tho profossor finally
recovored (sufficiently to stagger upstairs to his state-room.

Bc-itr-l of Trade.
At a meeting of tho council of tho
board of trade hold yesterday after
noon, a resolution was passed to tho
effeot that tho Into order forbidding

Easter^ Canada, destined for British
Oolumbia, would tend seriously to interfere with tho trade of this province,

A plan of tho proposed Southern
Railway biidge ovor tho Nicomekl
river was submitted to tho board. It
iB proposed to build this bridge so us
to have a clear space of 10 feet abovo
high water. Tho reovoof Surrey, who
was present, approved ot the plan,
which recoived tho endorsement of tho
board. A plan of tho proposed look in
tho Serpentine river, to bu constructed
in connection with the dyking sehome,
was also hid beforo tho board. The
reovo of Surrey endorsed this plan
also, and stated that tho couucil of
that municipality had receivod a petition in favor of it siguod by a large
majority of the persons most deoply
concerned in tho navigation of tlio Serpentine. Tho board passed a resolution approving the look.
It was also resolved that, in tlio ab*
sonce of any reliable chart of tho sandheads nud Frasor river, Admiral Hone*
age be requested to permit ono of tlie
vessels of his fleet to mako an accurate
survey and soundings of tho channel
