NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Foropangh, tho thowman, wbo
lias been travelling all over the
United States during tlie summer,
lias bet $18,000 on Cleveland's election and wants to put up a little
moro. A Forepaugli ought to make
a good pointer.
Shooting people is one of the
things which "they do better in
France." The new rifle adopted
there will, even at a mile range, lend
a bullet through a human body, so
that the doctors will not be at the
trouble of extracting tho balls in
future.
Electric launches and pleasure
boats are coming into use on the
Thames, and promise to be quite
numerous next year. The people
who used to worry themselves about
the supply of coal for steam engines
giving out in a century or two, may
live to see the steam engine practically superseded.
Following Senator Sherman's an-
nextion resolution, republican papers are trying to convince their
readers that there is a widespread
annexation sentiment in Canada.
Probably they have not noticed
Grip's little question. How would
the republicans relish an addition of
5,000,000 people, mostly democrats I
The use of the electric furnace,
between the carbon poles of which
the hardest metals became instantly
as butter, is accompanied by a
serious drawback. The dark glasses
which the workmen wear fail to
protect them from the effects of tlie
intense glare, and serious symptoms,
resembling those of sunstroke, frequently supervene.
A new (to us at least) fact about
the Chinese is printed in an English
journal. Thoy have a superstitious
regard for their bodies, which makes
them dread the loss even of a tooth,
so that when one is extracted they
sometimes grind it up and swallow
it. It is oven asserted that people
who have lost limbs by amputation,
have oaten them. This is probably
the reason the Chinese murderers
mangle their victims. We have
seen the practice ascribed to simple
lust of cruelty, but probably it is a
refinement of vengeance.
Thero was brought up against
Cleveland, at the last presidential
election, a sin committed in his hot
youth, when Lincoln was president.
Cleveland did not deny his guilt,
and the story faded into the background. Now a gentleman who
disgraces the title "Rev." by wearing it before his name, proposes to
sue for libel a New York paper which
handled him rather roughly about
the matter four years ago, in order
that ho may have a chance to call
Cleveland as a witness, and so revive the scandal for parly purposes!
It is said that Tennyson is probably the only living author whose
works aro used for examination
purposes in India. It was stated
tho other day that the entire body
of candidates at Madras was hopelessly puzzled by tho line from "The
Princess"; "Was proxy wedded to a
bootless calf." And yet we would
venture to assert that not even in
India was a calf with boots ever
soon! Thus the mind of tho would-
be philosopher, befogged among the
pretensions of a so-called learning,
loses the capacity to digest the simple chunks of cold and solid fact.
This is the style in which tho
Globe's "Observer" rehashes a story
which has been relegated to the
limbo of dead sensations on this
coast: It will be remembered tlmt
last summer it was reported that
tho Hon. W. Hsmlily, customs collector at Victoria, was to bn superannuated, that he was In lie succeeded by Senator McDonald, and
that Mr. Baker was to tako Senator
McDonald's placo in the senate.
So thoroughly was the ground prepared for theso exchanges that Mr.
Amos De-Cosmos issued an address
to the electors and announced himself a candidate for tlio vacancy to
bo created by Mr. Baker's dosceut
to the senate. But millionaire
Duiismuir nnd editor Higgins, of
the Colonist, interfered in behalf of
Mr. Humbly, and the Bakor faction
hnd to pause or take the responsibility for tho creation of a serious
party division. Why Mr, Baker,
who is not at nil a bad fellow, should
want to go into tho senatorial
morgue, is it profound and melancholy mystery.
Do not delay hi gotting relief for the
littlo folks. Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator is a. pleasant aad sure euro.
If you lovo your child why do you lot it
under when a remedy is so near at hand t

The movement is regarded as important in viow ol the drawbacks of tho
Chineie element to the province.
A CHECK KOBOEHY.
Montreal, Oct. 10.—A most audacious robbery was committed this afternoon in broad daylight. A boy, wearing a cap, at 2 o'clock entered the
Quebec bank carryings soap box wrapped in paper under his arm and, putting it againat the counter, mounted it,
reached ovor the brass railing and
matched a package of Bank of Montreal bills, amounting to $1,000, while
the teller's back was turned. He ran
out but was immediately pursued, but
as the teller had to go a round-about
way the audacious young robber disappeared. When the teller reached the
street the boy had vanished. There ii
no clue to the robber'i identity.
A FBEE FOB! CLOSED.
Hambubo, Oct. 16.—The emperor
William will open tho new bonded

on which will now go to thu imperial
treasury, Hamburg receiving a military
subiidy of 5,000,000 marks annually.
To-morrow Hamburg will cense to be a
free port and become a member of tho
Zollverein. Bremen will shortly follow her example and the last relic of
the Hanseatio league will thus be removed.

Sumaa and Chilliwhack are almost fan-
He because they ire obliged to by over
a week or more to tuit the convenience
of tho lawyers iu a caso which hai igiin
been adjourned. In such cases .num.
ber, Bay twenty men, are ordered to be

out of this number 8 men are clusen for
a jury; the balance may go to grass titer
paying their own expenses laid waiting
the pleasure of the lawyers. It would
bo bad enough, oven if the cue were
brought on punctually at the ipeelfied
time, but to be obliged to submit to inch
a burdensome custom ii too much for
even tho longsuffering patience of . B.C.
farmer. One often wonders if there It
no help for this tyrannical atate of things,
or if wo aro drifting baokward to the
dark ages whon poor humanity (except
tho privileged few) dare not call their
lives their own. In looking book to the
days of King John and other despots we
find that thero were not wanting daring
spirits to protest against cruel acts of
barbarous tyranny, but now In the latter
part of the nineteenth century people
are obligod to submit to a worse tyrsnny
than theso kings ever dreamt of. Whit
is to be done in this niatter ?

We have several times called attention to the necessity that exists
for increased mail facilities between
this city—the distributing point—
and tho various thriving farming
communities on the south side of tho
river. These districts, according to
theiripoetoffioes, nro six in number,
Mud Bay, Elgin, Clover Valley,
Hall's Prairie, Burrey Centre, and
Langley Prairie, and are served at
present by a weekly mail only,
which is oarried to the two former
places by stage and to the four latter
by horseback earlier. An increase
of the sorvice to twice u woek would
not, therefore, entail any very serious oxponse, and would provo a great
convenience to the farmers in tho
settlements referred to, who find tho
weekly service altogether inadequate. As but a few hours elapse
botweon the receipt of tho mails
from the south side of the river at
this city and their despatch again, it
will be seen that over a week is required to get on answer from a letter
either way between this city and
districts within a radius of twenty
miles. In fact, so far as mail communication is concerned, Westminster is nearly as far separated from
these tributary farming settlements
as if the continent intervened, instead of the Fraser and a few miles
of country. A bi-weekly service
should be established, ns suggested,
and we hope the postal authorities
will see their way clear to do so.
The ingenuity of the medical fraternity is taxed for expedients wherewith to produce both temporary and
permanent remedial effects upon
that large and unfortunate class
known as the insane. The experiments with colored lights in the
treatment of tho insane made recently at Alessandria, Italy, are
being much discussed by tho medical
fraternity, though getting little
credence, says on exchange, the
cures if cures were really made,
being attributed to unusual treatment and painstaking attention on
the part of the medical staff, because
of the color trials, rather than to
anything in the theory itself. In
the evidence transmitted by Dr.
Ponza, ho says rooms were selected
with as many windows as possible,
the walls of the room being painted
the same color as the window panes.
A patient suffering from melancholia,
who would not eat, was placed
in a room with bright red walls
and windows. In three hours
he became quite cheerful, und asked
for food. Another lunatic, who always kept his hands over bis mouth
to keep out air and nourishment,
was placed in the samo room, and
the next day was much better and
ate with a hearty appetite. A
violent raan'ao was placed in a blue
room, and became quiet in an hour.
Another patient, after spending a
whole day in a violet colored room,
was completely cured. American
and English medical authorities
seem to regard these ourei as effects
rather than causes of the treatment,
induced, they argue, not because the
light was colored, but because it was
a novel sensation, making the patients to forget their inclinations, as
pebblei put into tho ear of a balky
horse will- oause him to forget his
pranks; a sudden bath or shock
might have the same transitory ro
suit. * 	
There is no royal road to sucoess
in agriculture any more than in other
avocations nnd industries. An in
telligent and persevering adaptation
ol means to the end will win the
day here as elsewhere. A convincing proof of the benefit to be do
rived from heavy manuring and
thorough cultivation of the soil is
afforded in the remarkable crop of
potatoes raised by a Mr. Carman,
editor of the Rural New Yorker, on
his experimental farm in New Jersey. He had previously made n bet
of $100 to $50 that he would raise
potatoes at the rate of 700 bushels
per acre, Mr. Oarnmn, it is staled,
lost his bet, as the average crop per
acre was only 583 bushels, but this
il an enormous yield. His method
of culture il thus described: Trcnche3
are opened 15 inches wide and C
inchet deep and 3 feet apart, measuring from middle to middle. Potato fertilizer, at the rate of 880
poundi to the acre, was then strewn
in the bottom of the trenches, about
two inches deep of loose soil drawn
in ovor this, and all mixed together,
by drawing a Hexamer hoo along in
the trench. The potato sets were
then planted a foot apart. Two
inches deep of soil was drawn in
over the seti, and potato fertilizer, at
the rate of 880 pounds to the acre,
strewn over this and mixed as before. .Also powdered sulphur, at
440 poundi to the acre, was strewn
in the trenches, and they wero then
filled. The sets were mostly medium-
lized potatoes out in halves, each
half having .two or three good eyes.
Summer care consisted in keeping
the ground olean. The drills were
not hilled up,, but kept level. Shallow cultivation wai practised. Paris
green and plaster were used against
the potato beetle. On one lot Mr.
Carman raised 1,070 bushels, but
the average yield was reduced by
nme seedi which proved of inferior
productiveness.
As will have been seen by the
council report published yesterday,
the Hyack Fire Co. have tendered
their resignation in a body, and
stops have been taken to form a now
fire company. The reasons assigned
by tho Hyooks for resigning in, generally, that their communications
havo been treated with scant courtesy by the council, and, particularly,
that their request to havo three
(four in all) additional sleeping
rooms fitted up iu tho Hyack Hall,
for tho better efficiency of tho corp3
in case of fire, has been ignored and
treated with silent contempt. The
council, on the other hand, assert
that they havo mado considerable
outlay this year for new hose, for
alterations and improvements at the
fire hall, etc., and that they cannot
afford to bo at any more expense during the present civic year in tire protection matters. The fire company
claim that tho better facilities they
ask arc in the interests of the increased efficiency of tho corps
(which cannot be very woll gainsaid);
but they state that a courteous refusal from the council, giving the
reasons for not granting their request, would have been accepted as
satisfactory for the time being. The
council! again, are disposed to look
upon the fire company as unreasonable and exacting in their demands,
and, boing composed in a large proportion of the younger men of the
city, as being somewhat beneath
their notice. We cannot help thinking, from an impartial view of all
tho circumstances, that the council
have, at least, been deficient in ordinary courtesy in their dealings
with tho fire company, which, of
course, has been resented. Bo that
as it may, tho fact remains that a
mutual antagonism (acknowledged
by both parties) and considerable
consequent friction has existed for
several years between tho city council and tho Hyack firo company—no
clean sweep having been made in tbe
personnel of cither during tlio period
roforred to. Such being tho case, it
will, no doubt, bo better for all con-
coruod that a dissolution should take
place and a new company bo formed.
There are no particular inducements
to belong to a volunteer firo company, but, on tho contrary, considerable hard work, and, from a financial standpoint, loss instead of gain,
and such necessary and beneficent
associations should have every possible encouragement, and, at least,
ordinary courtesy—even if the members should be principally young
men or "boys," who, in tho nature
of tho case, must be depended on to
make really efficient firemen. We
trust that a new and thoroughly efficient firo company may be formed,
whoso relations with the council may
ever bo as smooth as "great
lightning," and we also trust that
the council may soo their way clear
to give evory possible and reason-
able encouragement in the future to
this very necessary and valuable
volunteer association, and that they
may be able at all times to main-
tain the due dignity of their lofty
positions by an impartial exercise
of common courtesy all round.
There are are a number of varieties of
corns. Holloway's Corn Curo will remove any of them. Call on your druggist and got a bottle at once.

The pith of thii reed Is taken out, flattened and gummed togctlicrso as to miilio

natural paper Is hyblus, hence our Bible.
These rolls of papyrus aro then filled
with writing. The wilting of Egypt was
hieroglyphic, or produced by a series of
pictures of different natural objects.
The trustees of the British Museum
have recently obtained a roll of papyrus
written out by an Egyptian scribe called
Aui. He lived moro than 1,300 years B.

Every chapter of the book is Illustrated

skillful brash of Anl. although most
delicate, nro apparent ly as fresh to-day ea

It Is natural that a girl should wish to

ihould be careful to keep bis shortcomings from the girl he is desirous of making bis wife.

relations point out to 1,1m, and 1, not ex.

affection bestowed ou himself.
Tbe dimwit girl Is a person of Importance, petted by ber friends and indulged
by her family. Her plans and wishes of ■
tcnhavothoflrstconslileratlon Littlo ia
required from her, and much Is yielded
to ber.
Finally, after nothing but consideration for self, the wedding-day comrs, and
with It a gradual change lu tho order cf
. things.
Tho husband Is as fond of bis wifo as
the lover was of his betrothed, but elm Is
' hid, and he is no longer anxious. He has
duties nnd social obligations, perhapi
rather neglected during his courtship,
which must bo attended to.
He does not show hll affection ao much
and is moro exacting! while thewife.liith-
erto petted ln ber own home, nud ber lover's one thought, Imagines him changed
snd inattentive. No longer seeing him
through rose-colored spectacles, she perceives hii falling! and betrays her own.
Thii beginning, without any lerloui
faults on cither side, Is often quite sufficient to lay the foundation of a thoroughly unhappy life,    .

An insane man. named Fogue, was

examine the unfortunate, who was
found to be Insane. He was committed
to the provincial asylum for care nnd

In the prize list of the Delta agri-
cuotural exhibition, published in this
paper about two weeks ago, there was
a. slight transposition under the head
of ,(horses." Barber Bros,, uf Ladners,
took first prize for the best draught
team, and the Jubilee Ranch, aecond,
instead of the reverse, aa published.
It is suggested that when a private
car is brought to Westminster to stay
a few days it should bo sidcl.rncl.od
somewhere down in the swamp, and
not opposite the station. It is trusted
the station agent will take this hint
and thus prevent the necessity of ro-
faring more openly to the nuisance on
a future occaaion.
The canning season may be said to
be over for this year. The boats have
nearlv all been withdrawn from the
mouth of the river and the fishermen
paid off and discharged. The canneries above Westminster will continue to
fish for a week or two longer, in the
hope that the withdrawal of the boats
at the mouth of the river will allow of
a paying catch.
A report has been in circulation for
a few days to tbe effect that Dr. D.
McLean, physician in charge of the
small-pox patients, was down with the
disease. Up till 6 o'clock this evening
Dr. Bentley, provincial health offloer,
had received no intelligence on the
subject, and he considers it nothing
more than a wild rumor aa his orders
to Mr. James Ellard were that he
should report auch an event forthwith.
There was quite a squally time in
Howe Bound last Thursday night and

just in from there that several boats

programme of songs, specialties, etc.,
will be rendered in the body of the

be of unusual interest, aa a number of
Vancouver's best vocalists have promised their assistance. The attendance
will likely be large.

A Valuable Visitor.
Prof. R. Dawson, special commissioner for the Toronto Empire, who arrived in the city yesterday, left this
afternoon for Toronto. During his
visit here Mr. D. Chisholm, M. P.,
and other prominent citizens took hiin
in hand and did all in their power to
show the professor the industries of
our city and to explain the capabilities
of tho district at large. As Professor
Dawson's impressions will shortly appear in the columns of the Empire thoy
cannot but prove beneficiul to both
Westminster oity and district as tho
information he has gleaned is both extensive and valuable.
 ••_-*>	
No Inquest Necessary.
After consideration, and realizing
the impossibility of proving foul play
owing to the decomposition of the remains, Mr. Coroner Ferris decided
that no inquest was necesssiy un tho
body of the Chinaman found in tho
swamp yesterday. It is almost certain
that the Chinaman was carried to the
swamp by friends and left there to dio
or recover as the case might be, without further expanse or anhoyacco to
hia countrymen who are notorious for
their inhumanity in this respect. Constable Poarce gathered up tho remains
and buried them in a box on the spot
where thoy were discovered.
Knifed n Count rynia-i
Last night two Chinamen, named
Ah Sam and Ah May, got into an altercation regarding a small sum of
money, the balance of a gambling debt
duo Ah Sam. While tho dispute was
at its highest Ah Sam drew a knife und
gave Ah Moy an ugly slash on tho face
which will somewhat detract from his
personal appearance when tlio wound
heals. Constable Carty was called and
arrested Ah Sam who was shortly afterwards bailed out by friends. At
the police court this morning Ah Moy
did not appear to prosecute and tlie
case was adjourned till to-morrow,
when, if he does not appear a warrant
will be issued for his arrest as the case
is too serious to be allowed to go by default.       .
Auolhcr Fine Thoroughbred.
Mr. Thos. Cunningham who is well
known as the owner of many fine Jersey cattle has made another purchase
which will prove a valuable addition to
his already large herd, This latest is
the Jersey heifer Dutchess of Westminster, lately the property of Mr. F,
Revely, of Victoria, who took first
prize with her over many competitors,
at the provincial exhibition lately held
at the island capital. The Dutchess
uf Westminster is a pure bred Jersey
and is registered with the American
Jersey cattle club. Her sire was Fl
Rio, Nu. 13,698, nnd dam Ella's Jersey Lilly, No. 46,969—both exceptionally fine animals. Mr. Cunningham intends to continue adding to his
herd of thoroughbreds until it ranks
equal tu any on the coast, aud as he
purchases none but the finest animals,
he is certain to attain his object at no
distant date. It is to be hoped other
cattle owners will adopt this principle
of importing nothing but pedigree
animals.

Opeulng a New Mine.
We understand it is the intention of
Messrs. R. Dunsmuir & Sons, of the
Wellington Collieries, to at once open
the coal scam on the Sabiston & Horne
property in the Millstream Valley,
contiguous to tho East Wellington
property. It will be remembered that
several yeai'B ago Messrs. A. G. Horne
and P. Sabiston sold uut their coal
rights tu Messrs. Dunsmuir & Sons,
A prospect shaft was sunk, and a level
run for a couple of hundred yards, out
of which several hundred tons of a
superior quality of coal were obtained.
It is tlio intention of Messrs. D. it S.
to pump tho water out uf tho present
shaft, and then run the level uut to
daylight. Carpenters will at once
commence the erection uf houses for
the workmen, and in a. few days they
expect tn have the water out of the
shaft and drift. This property is over
three hundred acros in extent, and is
situated between the property nf the
Vancouver Coal Company, and the
East Wellington Cual Co. It is also
intimated that Messrs, Dunsmuir &
Suns may re-open the Alexandria
mine, in Cranberry district, on the
line of tho E, & N, railway. -- Nanaimo

Juvenile Slavery.
There is some liklihood that the
Juvenile Opera Co., managed by Eck-
ert it Hudson and which played in
this city last week, will be disbanded
owing to a row that eccurred at Victoria. It appears the gentlemanly and
humane managers pay very small salaries to even the leading actors and
then further reduce the pittance by
a system of fines for misdemeanors,
real or fancied. The members of the
company put up with this sort of thing
until Sunday night when they were
being paid their week's salary at Victoria. One of the leading ladies,
whoso salary is only -$6 per week,
was fined to tho amount uf
$3 and she refused to accept
hor pay. The other members
ef the company gathered round and
supported hor and one of tho buys in
particular was very prompt in giving
his opinion uf the management uf tho
company. Dr. Hamill, tho treasurer,
undertook to rebuko the lad and high
words passed between them which
load to blows, nnd, painful to relate,
tho doughty doctor wonld have received an excellent licking but fur outside
interference. Tho company left for
the Suund that night, but somo uf tho
actors Baid before leaving that they
would aever all connection with the
concern.

A large Seizure.
Six canoes of woat coast Indians,
which were returning from the hop
fields of Puget Sound, were intercepted at the mouth uf the harbor
this morning and brought into the
htiding below the custom house,
A reporter visited that vicinity
this afternoon and found the customs officials busily engaged in examining the contents of the canoes. About
sixty siwnshes and klootchmen were on
board and each seemed to have invested their spare cash pretty thoroughly
in iktas in Uncle Sam's markets. There
wero barrels of sugar, abundance of
flour, cooking stoves, calicos to no
end, blankets, boots and shoes, suits
of men's clothing, shawls and skirts
of dazzling colors, apples, tea and
coffee, nnd what seomed to be the
best investment of all—plenty of soap,
In fact they had a complete outfit for
housekeeping and full supplies for
winter. The klootchmen wero very
much exercised over losing their calicos. "Na na," but didn't they uso the
cluquence uf their sex on the sub-collector. As tho work uf examining
their trunks progressed they did
not appear to be much contented uver
the matter, but will probably feel
worse when thoy como to pay some
$70 in the way of duties. The custom officers deserve credit for making
the capture.—-Victoria Times.
