• President-elect Harrison has had
to let up on his smoking. He has
been in the habit of late ot smoking
from ten to twelve cigars a day, but
his nerves could not stand the strain.
He has been obliged to cut down his
indulgence in tobacco to five or six
cigars per diem.

According to the Rekhanzeiger of
Berlin, the late Crown Prince Rudolf was "the dearly lo\ed friend"
of the present German emperor. A
few months ago these dear friends
were in converse with each other.
Rudolf talked of literature and
science. William then said, insolently, "Oh, I don't understand any of
tiiat. Such dry stuff1 is unworthy
of a prince." "Thero ib," replied
Rudolf, "only one thing unworthy
of - .prince, aud that is to aspire to
the throne while his father is yet
Hadji Hassein Khouli Khan,
Persian Ambassador at Washington,
lias been greatly misrepresented by
the newspapers says the N.Y. World.
Not only does he understand and
speak English, but he hi well
acquainted with French. He lived
in Paris a long time. The stories
which have crept into print regarding hiin have given him great amusement. The report thut he could not
understand English has led to many
curious incidents. People who
thought that all he comprehended
wus Persian have critioized his personal appearance to his very face.
Iloving an oriental command of his
countenance he never smiles during
such ordeais.
Khartoum still figures in newspaper despatches, though thore
really is no Khartoum at the present
day. Tne town was practically wiped
out of oxistenco in tho days of
horror following Gordon's death.
The forts are still maintained, but
the rest of the town was razed to
tho ground, and the material used
in the most important buildings was
taken across the river to build a big
mausoleum and mosque over, the
remains of the lato Mahdi. Omtlur-
inan, across the river from Khartoum,
is now the seat of the Mahdist power,
and when we road that Khartoum
is alarmed over White Pasha rumours, it simply means that Omdur-
nian is in a panicky state. By destroying Khartoum tho Mahdi meant
to show the Soudan what would
become of any other wicked eity
which, accepting an infidel's aid,
attempted to keep the hosts of tho
Prophet outside its walls.—N. Y.

The Philadelphia Press says : Tho
new English drill book just adopted
for the use of the army cuts the
space given to oompany drill to one-
half its old space and expands the
pages devoted to tactics to thrice
the old number. Tho mechanical
wheeling of companies on whose
perfection our milita companys pride
themselves is left out altogether.
So aro the movements for countermarching. The drill is greatly
simplified. The figures and movements which mako so fine a show on
tho ptu-ado ground and are so useless
in battle are omitted. For the long,
straight wheel, the rigid line, volley-
firing, counter-marching, and all the
intricate drill to which so much time
is given by our national guard, there
is.substituted a loose order in which
the firo is maintained by tho independent action of a cloud of skirmishers, , and the company officers are
occupied in feeding skirmish lino
from the rear and keeping the company in hand ovor a wide area, not
l>y command, but by the intelligent
co-operation of the men.
An Irishman onco got a job from
an undertaker to make a coffin, the
job to include painting the inscription on the lid. This was too ignorant to do, but did not like to confess
it. By dint of following the written
copy givon him, he managed to get
ns far as "Michael O'Rafferty, aged
—," but, try as he would, he could
not imitate the "28." At last he
remembered that he could write "7,"
and that four 7's made 28, So he
linished the inscription, "aged
7777." When they came to bury
Michael, the coffin stood at the grave
side, and the priest spoke somewhat
as follows: "Ah, he was a fine lad,
and he's lying thore so still j
taken away in the very proimo of
loife. Young, too, he was only,—"
and here the priest looked down at
tho coffin plate to seo how old
Michael was. "Ho was only," said
his roverenee again, and putting his
glasses on he went nearer to see how
old he really was. "He was only
—" he continued; "he was seven

Wahihngton, March, 11.—The president sent to the senate to-day tho following nominations: — Thoa. W. Palmer, of Michigan, to be envoy extraordinary nnd minister plenipotentiary of

a weavers' strike.
Fall River, Mass., March 11.—
Tho weavers strike for an advance of
wiigos, which occurred thia morning, is
ono of the most general in the history
of the labor troubles here. The weaving departmenta of fifty mills are practically shut down and about 0,000
weavers are idle. Those who refused
to strike do not number half enough
to keep one mill going. The extent of
the strike is quite "a surprise to the
manufacturers who expected only a
few mills in-the outskirts to bu involved. The operators are much
pleased at tho unanimous sentiment of
resistance displayed in their ranks, and
predict an early victory. They claim
they can afford to maintain the strike
for several weeka. It is the prevailing
impression tho manufacturers can give
an advance at present prices for cloth,
and can ill afford to curtail the production for even a short period. The
board of trado says, however, no
advance will be given, and a bitter
struggle is anticipated.
FATALLY SHOT,

rick O'Connor, a longshoreman, was

Holmes, of the whaling bark Sea Fox,
an office and a servant v. ere killed snd
five of tho crew burned by the explosion of a whaling bomb gun.
THE  RUMORED BATTLE.
Washington, Mar. 11.—Tbe state
navy department officers generally place
no credence whatever in the ropnrts
of a battle between tho German Corvette Olga nnd tho U.S. war vessel
Nipsic, in Samoan waters. At the
state department no information concerning the rumored battle is yet re*
ceived and the departments heads
have taken no steps to ascertain
whether the published accounts are
true or not. Commodore Walker,
chief oi the Bureau of navigation, does
not fuel iu tho least worried about tho
alarming rumors. Ho thinks the department would have received information uf tho battle had it ocoured,
and he does not euro to cable tho naval
officers stationed at Auckland for nny
information "Thero iB not a word of
truth in auy uf tin so rumors" said tho
commodore to a reprcnenlativo of the
united proas to dny, "I do hot pay the
slightest attention to them." Mean*
while tho naval officers and officials of
the stato department nro waiting
anxiously for confirmation or denial ol
the story. While the most of tho naval
officers are disposed to place littlo credence in thenccount, thoro aro still
a few who believo the engagement did
take place.

England, for the year 1888, has been
presented. Sir Charles reports that
49,168 emigrants left the United Kingdom for Canada last year, compared
with 44,40(1 in 1887. The report deals
at some lenghth with tho question of
state aided emigration and quotes some
statistics from the British trade returns
showing that the quantity of grain,
live stock, etc., imported from the
colonies was ridiculously small when
compared with the imports from other
countries. The report expresses regret
at the decline in the exports of butter
from Canada to Great Britain.
The director of the experimental
farms, Professor Saunders, in his report on the experimental farm at
Agsssiz, B.C., Bays: "A delay which
was unavoidable occurred in acquiring
the property so that nothing could be
done on it until very late in the season. Nearly 100 aores have been
cleared of the small undergrowth and
abou 120 acres ploughed aud thus sufficient land has been made available
fur such experimental work as it may
be thought desirable to undertake during the coming season.

Yesterday morning a roan named
Bird, employed at the Moodyville saw-.
mill, waB bady injured and by chance
only escaped death. It seems that
Bird had taken the place at the saw of
a Kanaka, who did not feel disposed to
yield up his position, and he attempted
to take his place by force. A struggle
occurred in which the enraged Kanaka,
whether intentionally or not, shoved
Bird on the saw. Luckily his arm
alone came in contact with the teeth of
the instrument, which lore the flesh in
a frightful manner, but not to the extent that the limb will have to be
amputated. This stopped the quarrel,
and Bird, after having his arm bound
up, came over to the city. It was at
first his intention to have a warrant
issued for his assailant, but he finally
concluded not - to push the matter.—

Victoria, Maroh 11,—-The store of
Henry Saunders, on Johnson stnet,
wss entered by professionals early on
Sunday morning. A determined attempt was made to blow open the safe,
in whioh was a large sum of money. A
small hole was drilled through the sido
of the safe and a quantity of powder
put in and set off, but failed tc accomplish tho desired effect. A namber of
b&BB of salt, &c, had been placed in
front of the safe, evidently for the purposo of keeping the fragments of the
door from being blown any distance.
Somo of these wero burned by the
flames from the explosion whioh came
through the crevices in the door. The
papers in the safe were also charred.
People in tho adjoining building beard
the explosion and telephoned Saunders,
who immediately came to the store,but
the burglars had left. The entrance
to the store was made through the back
door. The till waa gone through, but
there was nothing in it of consequence.
It is quito evident the burglars intended to offer resistance if disturbed in
their work. The safe is one of Hall's
burglar proof, aud weighs about two
tons.   The combination was uninjured.

Monday Evening. March II, 1(489.
Tlie present provincial government is uoteil for its paternal interest in llie public schools, antl 1ms
In fact done much to further the
educational interests of tho province. There is suoh u thing, however, as coddling nil infant too
much, and, in their zeal, it appeal's
to us, that this is what tlie govern-
ment, and particularly Llie minister
of education, is doing for the youthful school system of British Columbia. With the very best motives,
presumably, "daily marking" has
just been forced, clinched unci riv-
otted, onto the curd of the touchers'
duties, so far as our observation
goes, against tho almost unanimous
wish and advice of tho teachers of
tho provinco themselves;   It is true
that somo of the teachers have made
a virtue of necessity, and lmve dono
their devoirs to the educational  department with the best grace  possible ; but it is hardly   likely  that
we have heard the   last of  "daily
marking."   Of  a   pieco with  the
action of the   government  in  this
matter, appears to us to be the proposal of the provincial secretary  to
place in the hands of tho  governor-
in-couneil the power of  summarily
suspending or dismissing nny school
teacher, for any cause whatever.   It
is not at all improbable that   cases
might arise calling for the  suspen
sion or dismissal  of  teachers,   but
surely the trustees are competent to
judge and to net in sucli contingencies.   The provincial secretary and
minister of education may be  very
zealous for the best interests of the
public schools, and no doubt is,  but
when he proposes   to  assume   tho
duties of tho school trustees-he must
have come to tlie conclusion that the
trustees are not   doing  their  duty
and should be superceded.   It may
be just possible that the trustees of
public schools throughout the provinco are not generally qualified   for
their   duties, and that the   large
sums of money furnished from   the
public treasury nre not well spent on
account of tho   remissness  of  the
trustees m looking after the  teach-
ore, or it might havo   appeared   to
the provincial  secretary   thut   the
private character of   some   of   tho
teachers was not just what it should
be—there must be some strong reason to induce anyono to make such
a proposition to place   such  power
in the hands   of   the   governor-in-
eouncil over the heads of  trustees
nnd teachers.   If, after all tho machinery that hns been set in motion
for  testing   the qualifications   of
teachers and for tlie government  of
tho schools, through a chief superintendent and local board of trustees,
it be now necessary that the  governor-, n-council should assume such  a
sweeping control ns is proposed   by
tlie provincial secretary's notice  of-
motion on Friday, then it must  bB
evident that there is a screw   loose
somewhero in the machinery,   and
that tho people, to whom  the  government is supposed to be responsible,  ar-j   not   themselves  counted
worthy of any   responsibility.   Tho
great object of responsible  government by its founders was the liberal
distribution of power and   responsibility amongst the people j but this
motion by tlie minister of education
would be the very opposite and  its
tendency would bo in the direction
of   concentrated,  absolute   power.
Thero   may     be   instances where
trustees have proven themselves unworthy the trust, but wo are loth to
believo tlmt it is so   general   us   to
require such a drastic remedy us wo
have been   considering.     If   it   is
nocessary, it speaks very poorly for
the inl el I ige nee of the people,   who
have tho power to  make  and   unmake   governments   through    thi
ballot-box.
been published in English journals.
The rod was thero subjected to serious trials, und from tho   reports   it
appears that many peoplo have full
faith in it.    The accounts give   the
names of the supposed mediums,and
other details of   the  performances,
and in several instances it  is   perfectly evident thnt the absurd operations were fully believed in by the
observers.   Tho London Truth, in a
recent issuo, gives an account of   a
meeting held to test the efficacy   of
the divining road, and not to use its
powers directly.   A number of professors of the occult art were  present.   Oue of them   was  somewhat
noted as having been  retained   by
tho Tiverton town council to advise
where wells should be sunk for  the
water supply of that borough,   Tiiis
extraordinary fact puts the orodulity
of one of the local governing bodies
in strong light.    Four diviners tried
their rods in a garden in the environs
of London, in nil cases   with   negative results, or with   success   easily
accounted for by powers of the most
ordinary observation.    Thus, a   hydrant and a tank being discernable,
one medium located water  on   the
lino between them,  just   where it
was evident that the communicating
pipe should be.    Among those present was Mr.   Frank   Potlmore,   an
ollicor of tho psychical research   society.   With two other gentlemen
as a committeo he arranged a special
metal test,    Fivo   sovereigns   wero
hidden in one of iive  books  placed
upon a billiard table.   The rod indicated   metal  in   several  places,
among others in the  neighborhood
of tho sovereigns and over tho   corners of the table whore some  one
hud remarked that the brass of  tho
pockets was situated.     Eventually
the rod indicated metal in  a   book
which was examined and found  to
contain none.   A   purse  was  luid
upon the table, over which the signs
of metal appeared when the rod was
held over it,   but  on investigation
the purse proved to be empty  and
without a particle of metal about it.
The unsuccessful   operator,   it  is
stated, disappeared after his   liasco.
This individual  had   his  meed   of
fame, derived from   previous  exhibitions of his alleged power,   which
some two   months   before   ho   had
given at Lisburn.'at a   meeting   of
tho North of Ireland association   of
gas managers.    For them   ho   had
located the gas and   water   mains.
But when put to tho trial above detailed, as well as others of a similar
nature which it is not necessary to
repeat, he failed ignominious!}'. The
psychical society have also been investigating the matter.   A  diviner
was sent to work in a certain  field.
Ho was made to   locate   two spots,
one where water would  bo found,
another where it would be useless to
dig for it.   The society accordingly
hnd two wells dug, one in each spot,
and water was found in both.   Last
December the guardiana of Hastings
l England were engaged in sinking
well under the directions of a  di-
iner, thus emulating the  Tiverton
authorities in credulity.   It is quite
possible that if thoy dig deep enough
they will   find   water.     Sixty  or
seventy feet was given as the prob-
ablo depth, but it is stated   that   a
depth  of  one   hundred feet   was
reached without finding any. Surely
the divining rod humbug will soon
tako its place   with   tho "philosopher's stono"   and  the  "elixir  of
life."

in tho subject of this sketch, Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1862 and

PliitKMs Barnum, the great showman, has loft it on record that "people like to be humbugged." To thia
eccentricity in the human animal
ho felt, no doubt- that he owed a
great pait of his success, It might
be added: that people don't like to
havo their faith shattered in hoary,
moss-grown humbugs which their
ancestors have believed in. More
than oue application might be given
to illustrate this. It will be sufficient to refer to the credulity
which still obtains in some quarters
with respect to the divining rod, an
instrument of whoso mysterious
powers in locating hidden water
springs, minerals, &c, nearly overy-
orie has heard. The divining rod,
it is hardly necessary to mention,
consists of a forked twig with arms
six inches pr a foot long. If tho
end of oach prong is held, one in
the right hand and the other in tho
left hand, and the two ends are bent
outward, it will be found that tho
leist movement of rotation of tho
Hand will cause the rod to swing
violently upward or downward, according to the direction of rotation.
These motions are produced, of
course, directly by theoporator, yot
they are attributed to and used as
the indicator of buried treasuro or
'of Mdcta springe of water. Within
the last bix months several accounts
of the use of the divining rod have

MAIttlYING IN FRANCE.
Where Cupid la in League with
Matrimonial Agencies.
How Girts Aro Supplied with Husbands
Through Ihe Instrumental! ly of Clever Agents Without Knowing
or Suspecting It.
The Interviews between the candidates
take placo either at the apartment of tho
agent, fat rcceptionii given In enc of tlionu
mcicus mined salons tnat aro affiliated wltb
these brokers, or atthe theater, says a Paris
letter, These reunions ato so eminently respectable in appearance that no stranger
would ever suspect that a mother hnd led
her daughter thero to meet" by chance " an
cllgiblo young man. After tho presentation the young man asks permission to call
at tlie house, and if the request is granted
ho carries on liis courtship according to tho
French rulo—which American girls would
consider rather slow. Ono agent used to
havo a specialty of Uio opera for bringing
her clients together. She mado tho appli-
uant pay ¥60 or $60 for the wholo box, and
invited blm to come in at the first entr'acte;
thero he would seo somo young or ripe
woman, according to tho case, and, after a
short conversation, bo politely -bowed out
with (ho request to call at the agency on
Buch a dny, when he would be told what impression he hnd made on tho lady.
This trick was played at each entr'acte so
that the go*botwoeu mado a good harvest
out of her evening "reception." The women
who serve as llgurantes In these affairs divide with the agont or receive a stipulated
price for their BorviceB.
The regularly established agencies are in
closo relation with tho intelligence. ofllcos
that Bwarm in tho French capital. Thoy often have need of confidential Information,
foikhoy agroe to furnish their olionts with
nil tho facts about the interested parties.
Thoy also pay employes in tho Government
registry nnd mortgage offices, where information is to he obtained about tho solvability of thoir clients. Notaries wbo draw
up ull marriage contracts are often hand
nnd glovo with thoso marrievs, and receive
n percentage for tho family secrets they reveal. Domestics, governesses, and,- In fact.
any ono who can servo theso brokers, nre
always woll paid for their indiscretions.
Tho proceedings employed by these agents
uro often curious and complicated. Here is
ono exumplo out of a hundred:
When a governess orservantacts as intermedium hor role is to mako tho young lady
"remark" tho young man that tho agoncy
wishes to marry. Boforo getting an invitation for tho young man to visit tho family,'
tho agent and servant select a public garden, a museum or a church where the candidate wilt bo on a certain day and hour.
Then tho servant or governess, when she
takes mudnmoscllc out for a walk, goes to
iho designated spot, carelessly colls the
young lady's attention to the "fine-
looking man," praises his appearance, etc. If tho young lady seems pleased
with tho stranger tho scrvnnt makes known
to hor outBido omployor whon sho will be
nt an evening party. Tho agencies have so
many strings to their bow that they can
usually havo a representative proBont at
thoso entertainments. Youug ladles arc
often thus married by tho intervention of
an agency without knowing it. The introduction tukos place casually, and the husband is very careful afterward not to tell
his wife thut Uo paid so much per cent, ior
her hand.
Thore aro still other classifications iu tho
Pnris matrimonial agencies, '.or example,
somo occupy themselves entirely with political marriuges, othors with religious
unions. There arc Bonnpnrtiat, Legitimist,
Protestant and Catholic agencies. At somo
of tho Legitimist brokerage offices tho applicant must be nn authentic nobleman,
Christian and monarchist, otherwise his
enso will not bo considered. Not a great
whilo oro a prominent mombor of tho commune, whom it is not necessary to name, for
ho has sinco seen tho orror of his ways and
is now a distinguished member of tho Moderate Republican press, went to one of tho
Legitimist agents and introduced himself
under his own name. Ha was collecting
notes on the difforont agencies. Tho elderly
lady who directed this particular office lives
on tbe Faubourg Saint German, and receives her clients in an apartment that Is
embellished with real Louis XVI. furniture
and objects of art. When M. G. mentioned
his name, and said ho wanted to get married, tho old lady replied, with a most dignified air: "1 rcgrot that I can not do nny
thing for a writer who is bo compromised
politically. If you repent, como and seo ino
again, and thon wo nay bo ablo to arrange
tho affair."
Ono of tho most celebrated of tho French
marriage agenta was M. do Foy, who flourished undor tho last empire, lie hnd a lot
of rich and Influential friends, and went u
great deal Into socioty. Ho was a vory amiable man, nud very distinguished lu his
j manners. Ho mado no secret of his calling,
for ho said that tho way modern society was
constituted It wus impossible for all the
worthy, marrlugcublo young men and
women to bo brought together without tho
aid of iiu intermedium. So ho opened his
houso and announced to all his friends that
ho was a real apostle of marriage. When
M. do Foy wont into society and found a
marriageable young lady wild had no beau,
ho walked straight to tho mother, and, after
an introduction, talked with her frankly on
tho subject, and named tho ollgnblo young
men ho hod on his list. Hts agoncy was so
well conducted that ho had grout success so
far as numbers aro concerned, although I
should not caro to gunrantoo that all tho
unions thus cont meted wore eternal. Just
boforo ho retired from active business unscrupulous rivals hod so discredited tho
"profession" that he sadly exclaimed,in his
splendid country houso nt Ht Cloud:
" Future generations will blnmo mo for this
villainous work, and no ono will uo loft to
dofend me 1"	
SHARP  THE COLLIE.
A Hog Who Bad More SonsoThnn a Good
Many Human Ilelngs,
I called him at times by a pet name, which
he was always glud to hear, and spoke to
him as il he wero a human being, snys
James Mumo in the leisure Hour. "Sharp"
wns merely retained us his business title,
and istr-cUy reserved for tho sorious pur*
Mills of life. Tho pot nemo, he soon cume
tc know, wat. a signal for pleasant conversation. At the Bound cf this name his bap-
l-mcss wns full, and it was a pure jkoaure
to watch the joy that, to to speak, vporlried
in his bright, intelligent eyes. lie vory
soon understood almost overy wctd thut
was spoken to bim. His anxiety lo please
nnd show sympathy with his roister was remarkable. Unlike most collies, ho took a
positive delight in watching the angler, and,
il united to do so, would carry a trout in his
mouth with evident pleasure. Ho onco
caught a grilse on his own account, and bis
usually good opinion of himself was raised
considerably by this exploit. It happened
In t.tiis way: I wus passing a small rivor in
Suthorlandsh.ro. accompanied by my canine
friend, when a grilse ran up tho stream,
malting u great flutter in tho shallow water.
Sharp rushed aftor tha fish, and catching it
by tho head killed it.
Ho always displayed a groat fondness for
boating, aud, indeed, took a deep interest iu
evory thingthut concerned his mastor. Ho
would attempt to carry out my wishes In
every particular, and on tho wholo ho was
most successful in his efforts, On being
asked te speak ho would utter a series of
sounds which was clearly an imitation of
tho bumau voico.
Sharp had a strong regard for children,
and It was touchlugly beautiful to observe
thu studied earo which ho evinced for the
little ones, as well as tho kindly Intorest he
took lu their movements. On ono occasion
I was specially impressed with his bonovo*
lenuo to thom, nnd I can novor forgot tho
incident. Tho children belonging to n fam
liy in whleh I lived for a brief period woro
amusing themselves on tho green ground iu
front of tho houso. The two older ones
went off, In tholr innocent frolics, somo
diatuueo from tho youngest child, a boy
about two yoars old, who wus left in churgo
of Sharp. At length tho toddling littlo mun
lost his balance and fell, and, being unwilling or unable to rise, set up ti loud rear of
distress. Tlie dog was ab his side in an Instant. He looked around about in great
perplexity, And perceiving no one, for l was
partially concealed Irom view, he promptly-
went to the aid of the child. Ho caught lhe
little follow gently by tho dress and tried to
raise] him, but instead of improving mutters, the child vented his grief in louder
tones than boforo. Sharp was in a sud
dilemma, and seeing he could not render
assistance to the child tbo poor dog began
to cry in a most affecting manner. Both
tho child and tho dog wept together. I havo
soon tho collie at different times shedding
tears of anguish when punished for misdeeds, but this sight was as unexpected as
it was extraordinary. Sharp was subsequently known to shed Loan along with the
children in their little sorrows, and it was
observed his happinCss wis completo ,*.vhon
thoy woro happy. In liRo manner mi partook of tho sadness of his master, and- from
constant fellowship with-man and careful
training ho undoubtedly was no stranger
to tho workings of tho human heart'.
THE  BUSTLE'S HISTORY.
[ntllsputublu Views of the Highest Authorities on Costume.
Until US25 tho fomalo waist- was ordained
by drcBsmafcors to bo just under the nrin-
pita; and n bustle, whon such a stylo of
feminine costume prevailed, would huvo
been uot u dross Improver, but a hump.
Short wuists possessed also one substantial ndviuilugo—thoy put an end for u timo
to tight lacing, and sixty years ago a pair
of stays was tlio most Innocent of bodices.
Tho highest authorities on costume, snys
tho Aryonaut, soem to have inclined tot he
opinion that the hustle, which undeniably
camo from Purls, was a reaction uniting the
Indies of tho Fronoh aristoWacy against the
psoudo-elusslc robes of tho revolution and
the Empire. ....
The hidioii of tho courts of Josephine and
Mario Louise dressed much 11101% decently
than thu mnrvcllousos oftho directuire hud
done, still David and tho artists of his school
wero tho real arbiters of fnshion until 1015;
nor could short waists and dresses clinging
to tho limbs bo entirely eradicated from tho
femalo fashiquablo wardrobe until tho restoration wns waning. Tho buttlo was fought
and tho victory won, a year or two boforo
tho deposition of Charles X., and as regards
tho garments of tho fair sox, tho change almost amounted to a metamorphosis; the
waist descending from its bad altitude between tho shoulders to its natural position nt tho hips; sleeves hitherto tight
wero suddenly puffed out to pretentious
amplitude; and the pear-shaped, balloon-
shaped or leg-of-mutton sleeve was, in
process of timo, succeeded by a wider and
looser sleeve, which English dressmakers
dubbed "the bishop." Unfortunately, long
waists effected tho revival of the mischievous practice of tight lacing, and stays bo-
camo real instruments of torture. The
dross improver ran its courso and declined
as suddenly as it had appeared Tho "Princess" robe banished bustles for four or live
years, but tho bustle came back with short
walking skirts, nnd it thrives and will
thrive, and will dio ngain, wo suppose, no

INSECT  GENERALSHIP.
Curious Stories of IIiiIHuh lli-tween Wasps
and Tliolr Knomtus.
"A story which uppcarcd a few days ago
concerning a light between a wasp nnd 11
spidor reminded mo of a siinlla.i* bailie
which I witnessed a short time ago. 1 wus
walking across a field, when I suw u spider's
web on tlio grass and noticed thut a wasp -
hnd just been caught in its meshes. Thu
spider was on tho watch, ond showed unmistakable signs of delight as its victim
buzzed and struggled in tho vain endeavor
to set itself freo. The ugly creature sat at
the bottom of tho web, holding the ropes that
wero to bind its prey. When the wasp censed
to struggle the spider approached. But lhe
winged insect had not given up. As it saw
Its captor it showed light und exerted itself
to the utmost to got near enough lo use its
sting. Tho spidor retreated 11 little, but ap
parently only for the purpose of tightening
tho strings that held tho prisoner.
"A moment later tho wasp was turned
over and bound moro firmly than ever. 1:
seemed as If tho spider took advantage 0'
each movement ot its adversary to wind an
ot ho- rope about its legs and tio them jet
moro firmly. The skill displayed was a rev
elation to mo—1 had no idea insects knew lo
much. FlnaUy,whon tho wasp was so hound
that it could neither kick nor sting, the ■ \i-
dcr jumped upon it, killed it almost Instuiuiy
by biting, und then proceeded to feast upon
tho enrcass.
"At another time I witnessed a fierce
strugglo between a largo hornet and a colony of wasps whleh had built a neat in ihe
window of un old shop. Tim hornet craw.ed
up the glass toward tho nest, aud when ilia
wasps saw him thoy formed iu battle array
to defend their homo. Tho intruder moved
onward, whon a wasp darted from the
ranks to sting him. But tho courageous
littlo fellow hardly seemed to touch his
enemy boforo falling dead upon the window
sill. At this the wasps retreated in a bailv
to the other side of the nost to lay pinna for
battle, sending out a spy now and then 10
reconnoitcr. 'As tho hornet came closer ull
suddenly rushed toward him in a body. A
largo wasp stepped out of the ranks, flaw
over tho homot aud alighted beyond him.
Thu invader halted, anil the little army also
stood still, watching him. The unequal forces
eyed cutfh othor for somo time, when suddenly it appeared as If tlio largo wasp gavo
a signal and his companions rushed forward, making quick work of tbo enemy.
Several wasps fell dead beforo tho hornet
was conquered, and the survivors did unt
venture to approach thoir prostrated foo
until he had bceu dead for several minutes."
Tho nbovo tales wero told to a Dispatch reporter by unintelligent Pittsburgh mechanic,
for whom tho study of insect life seems to
havo a peculiar fascination.
Uso of tlio Mosquito*
The uso of tbo mosquito baa at lost beon
discovered. Prof. Webster toys that in-
juroua organic matter tn the water, instead
of decomposing nnd poisionfng people, ia
changed into "wiggle nils," which In duo
timo becomo mosquitoes, nnd the winged
matter files away, leaving tho water purified to tho extent of their ability to remove
tho Impurities. If fish aro kopt in tho
water they eat tho "wiggle talis," und
grow lnrgo enough to servo as food for
man. Thus tho poisonous ingredients of
impure water become healthful food. Without mosquitoes, most marshy or swampy
land would he dangerously salubrious,

More Advertising Required.
Mr. J. Hi Fell, one of the engineers
on tho Southern Railway right of way,
a few days ago received a letter from
his father iuj)Southport, England, stating he would bu cabling somo important news in a fow weeks, und to make
arrangements at Vancouvor to have the
message forwarded to Westminstor,
Tho letter further stated that the
writer hnd endeavored to ascertain if
thoro wero a telegraph office in Westminster, but the cable company professed not to know, and aaid the mes-
eage would linve to bu sunt to Vancouver, It is to be hoped the foregoing
incident was not the result of intentional misrepresentation. Westminster
is the head olfico of thu C. P. R. Telegraph Co. for British Columbia, and as
such should bo properly advertised. A
Utile more enterprise in advertising
would tint damage tho company to nny
serious extent.
Ran Away hem Uoiue,
A youthful runaway arrived iu tho
city at the beginning of laat week, and
brought a rather pitiful story with him
which enlisted the sympathies of a
number of city youths, who probably
hnd an idea how they would feel, or
possibly hud felt, under Bimilar circumstances. Tho boy Baid he came from
the Nortii Arm where his father lived,
and that he had ran awny becauso life
wns miserable snd unbearable ut
homo. His father, the boy snid, was
in thu habit of frequently heating his
better half, and ho (tho boy) being too
young and uuall to tako his mother's
part preferred to run away rather than
stay at home and witness such unpleasant occurrences. Tho boys he
met and formed acquaintance with in
this city clubbed together and managed to rig the little chap nut in several suits of warm clothing, and overy
day they supplied him with ample
muck-a-muck to fend off starvation.
The boy slept under a building on
Front street, and claimed to havo
fairly comfortable quarters. Yesterday
tho father of tho boy arrived in town,
captured hia runaway son nnd heir and
took him home, much to the disgust of
the romantic youths who hud como to
look upon the North Arm boy as n pure
and unadulterated hero.

Ex-Senator Oanfield, of Whatcom-.
Mr. P. Dickinson, of Now Turk, and
Mr. Chas. King-general manager ot
the N. W. B. Bi -ft'8. R. R., arrived
in the city yesterday to complete the
business of tho ' transfer of the
Southern Railway to the management
of the Northern Pacific Railway, and
to arrange othor important matters.
This morning a meeting of theso gentlemen was held with tlie directors of
the Southern Railway and the results
were iu overy wny satisfactory.
Mr. P. Dickinson accorded an
interview to a representative of Thk
Columbian, tho results of which will
bo most pleasing to our readers. The
Northern Pacific, ho said, hns secured
temporary control of the whole line
from Senttlo to Now Westminstor and
will build nnd equip it in tho most
thorough manner. To make good this
statement, Mr. Dickinson Baid it had
already been decided to expend ?250,-
000 more thnu tho lirst estimate on
construction. The bonds of the rond
hnvu all been taken up and thu papers
wero sent to New York 10 days ngo
for signature. Within a few days the
proceeds from the snle of tho bonds
will bo at thu disposal of the company
and thou "work' will be tho order
of the dny all along tho line Speaking about the ferry steamer, Mr.
Dickinson said both the city nnd the
railway company required a bridge and
not n ferry. A bridge will have to be
built within a few years anyway, and
it would be more profitable tu build it
now than later on, If tho city is
willing to bonus a bridge to the extent
of §100,000 it will be immediately
built. Thu workshops will be commenced within two weeks, and, if
the company obtains a grant of
five hundred ncres of land at the
hend of Lulu Island, it will build tho
bridge uud approaches thereto and
maintain thom in good condition at no
expense to the city. All tho freight
cars, coal cars analog trucks will be
built iu Westminster, and all necessary
repairs will bo made at the workshops
hero.
"What do think of our pospects 1"
nsked The Columbian man.
"I think," said Mr. Dickinson, "the
people of Now Westminster hive no
idea of tho brilliant future in store for
this city. You will seethe population
of the city trebled within « very short
time, and instead of n slow slumbering
town you will wnkeii up some morriiig
and find it an active bustling city."

Mr, James Leamy, who has the contract for grading tlie railway line to

this morning from Mr. King to proceed directly with the work. In a few
hours he Imd 100 men jmtfmi-cd together und shipped them over oh the str.
Gladys to Herring's point, where they
will begin work to-morrow morning.
Moro men will be sent over to-morrow
nnd 500 will probably be at work beforo the end uf tho week. Mr. King
lias aU the qualities and ability necessary to tho successful management of
thu rond, nnd, under hisnble direction,
its construction will bo rapidly performed.

woro present mayor Hendry nnd tho

THE CHURCHES.
Wlint Was Spoken al Some or the lily
Sanctuaries Yesterday.
ST. Paul's church.
The Rev. Thos. Haddon conducted
the services at the Reformed Episcopal
church last evening and spoke, from
Rov. 21 chap, part of 6v.—"Behold 1
make all things now"—substantially as
follows;---The book of Revelations *ia
ono of the most mysterious of ttie
whole Bible, as it duals with the
world's future history and strengthened nnd enforced the prophesies of the
old testament, whicli pointed to the
millenium which thu church through
its darkest dnys nnd greatest struggles
bad always looked forward to. Tho
Lord gnvo to John on Pat mos a view,
under a figure uf tho now Jerusalem
descending, and with it gsvo the promise "Behold I. mako all things nuw,"
when tlioru shall be univorsal peaco
and happiness, and righteousness shall
cover the earth na the waters cover the
deep. There wore two theories with
regard tu tho millenium. Tlie first wns,
Christ coming personally to reign ou
tbe earth, suddenly bursting in view
in the clouds of Heaven, and miraculously causing a ojinploto truusligurtt.-
tion—n complete re-creation—nnd thnt
all things both nbove nnd below shnll
be made new. Thu second nud spiritual theory is that tho figures usud in
tho Revelation are symbolic, thnt tho
earth as it is will bu cleared of sin,
thnt there would bo a universal spiritual reign of Chi'isttanty, when wars
shall cease, and sin be abolished, and
all become as originally when God
oreated the world, and it was the aecond view of tho second coming of
Christ that it was the design uf the
Gospel to effect. Christ hnd thus
used symbolically seed, on the principle
that it spreads, beginning by regunera
tion; the spirit of God touches and
awakens the soul to tho truth, to the
consequences of sin and creates tbo do-
Bire for holiness, changing the character as of Paul from a persecutor to a
saint, and the same is. true with all
men changed, and thore is overy manifestation that this is tho tiue system;
Paul, on Mars Hill, declared to the
men of Athens that thoy were men of
ono blood from the creation—the old
barbarism died and a now principle
created by Ohristanity took its place,
and this new principle works tho
same changes to-dny. Missionaries
in the Pacific bad, in teaching it, turned the cannibals into a Christum nation,
and in the east, where Confucius nnd
Buddnh' had held sway, new institutions, now trades, new customs, founded on Ohristanity, hogin to show
themselves : the progress is apparent
everywhere where Christianity is
adopted, nnd the nearer a populaeo
lives to God the nearer their surround-
ings will assume the Eden like state
before tho fall. 1800 yenrs ago Christianity was sown into, terribly hard
soil, the Christains were a small people
among the nations, and  when Christ
came he fonnd nun sadly degenerated.
Man was diseased, oppressed, and tortured by evil-spirits. Imperial monsters wore ruling at Rome, orgies of
the worst type, aod superstitions of
the basest kind prevailed, and it was
into this ground that Christ and his
apostles had to sow seed amidst violent
opposition; all the forces of Judaism
and paganism, after the crucifixion of
Christ, persecuted His apostles, ia the
hope that iu killing the founder and
His few followers they would crush out
the principles He aud they taught; but
what wns sown was a living seed, and
despite their efforts it grew, the blood
of martyrs watered it, and for three
long centuries it stood like "tbe bush
on Hureb, and was not consumed."
Noble lives and heroic deaths wrought
a change in tho persecutors, until
Cn-snr himself was bowed, and by imperial decree placed Christianity on
the throne. But afterward Rome got
tho power and darkness reigned until
the loth century, and yet through all
thia time, while there had been many
changes, Christianity had lived, and at
last succoeded in throwing off the pall,
and hnd introduced these latter days of
blessing, und what it had done for tho
world for the last four hundred
years
cannot bo estimated; the revolution of
social life and influences was so great
that if those who hnd passed this state
a hundred years ago could return they
would declare that it was not the same
earth. May we bo made new, nnd may
our hearts be ohanged, and if we are
changed then nil about us will feel the
influence and generate progress nn^iiid
in attaining that end the Gospel poiiits
to, "When nil things shall be made,'
new."
Tho church is getting too cramped
forthe congregation, which ia growing
perceptibly.
ST. ANDREW'S CIIUKCH,
Rev. R. McKay, late of Vancouver,
prenclicd at the Presbyterian churoh
last night, taking for his text, 1st Cor,;
8c, 13v.*—"Wherefore, if meat make
my brother to offend, I will eat no
flesh while the world standeth, lest I
make my brother to offend "—and
Baid: This is one of the beautiful sayings of the Apostle Paul which remind ub of his greatness of soul.
Judging by this, and one othor statement of Paul's, he seems to have been
the greatest of all mon—-the most
magnanimous, nt least. Just look at
another text, Romans, 9c. 3v.—"For
I could wIbIi that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren,
my kinsmen according to the flesh."
And indeed the translators seemed almost to be afraid lo give thia statement
of Paul's its full force; they might.have
rendered it, "I did wish myself accursed," &c. Just think uf those two
sayings. Can you conceive of anything that illustrates the greatness of
soul of a man moro strongly thnu this 1
I know of only one parallel, tbat of
Moses, found in Exodus, 32c. 32v,,
when Muses prays God for forgiveness
for the Israelites, and adds: "And if
not, blot me, I pray thee, out of Thy
book which Thou hast written." That
wns ono other case, to my mind, similar to tho two statements of Paul.
But let us inquire into Iho meaning,
let us try and find out what the principles nre involved, and, if possible, apply those principles to ourselves, to our
conduct ns Christians. "If meat make
my brother to offend," &c., Paul referred here to ment that had been sacrificed to idols. In thoae heathen sacrifices, one part of tho meat wu
burned, another given to tho priests
who served at tho altar, nnd the third
waa the property of him who offered
the sacrifice. Sometimes thia meat
thnt wns kept by the owner was sold;
sometimes it wns taken home nnd eaten
in private. Tho question was, with
tbe Christian convert from heathenism:
Is it right tu partake of such meat at nil?
Paul could do so, without violating hia
conscience, because ho knew that nn
idol was nothing, but Borne of tho
Corinthian converts imagined thut it
would bo a sin to partake of. meat that
had been offered to idols. Seeing Paul
do so, might offend their weak consciences; it might even lead them to
violate their consciences and eat of tho
meat, on the strength of Paul's example. Therefore Paul deoided that,
while it was an indifferent matter to
him, neither a moral nor an immoral
aot, for the sake of his weaker brother,
he would cat nu meat while the world
should stand. The speuaer said there
were three things in modern society—
iu the ohuroh—which ho considered
bore a similar relation to Christian
men and women in theae days as tho
eating of tho meat did to tho Apustlu
Paul. Tbey were curd playing, dancing, and drinking intoxicating liquor.
White with some Christiana these
things might hnvo nu mural ur immoral
quality in themselves, a goud mnny
Christians considered that sin wns involved in indulging in any of them.
Those who wished to follow iho ex*
ample of Paul—and it wns a good example to follow—would do the same in
theso matters as did tho apostle with
regard to eating meat. Paul argued,
"But meat oommendeth ua not to
God; fur neither if wo eal ure we the
bettor, neither if wo ent not are wo the
worse," So.withrespecttonnyaciioii,
besides the question, la it right? we
might very properly ask ourselves two
other questions: Will It do me uny
good to do so! Wilt it do me nny
harm to refrain? If both theao qui h-
tions can be answered in tho negative,
we should, like Paul, be prepared to
say: I will do none of those things
while the world standoth, lest I make
my brother to offend.
