Tlie fur trade in the Oanadian
North-West is somewhat depressed,
says an exchange. In the Hudson

stated thit whereas in 1874 the
average price of marten skins was
'27s. 6d., it is now only 7s. Id.
Mink lias fallen from lis. 4d. to

the change of fashion, those furs
being no longer worn by those
whose whims are law.

** A.'n exchange says : The English
postmaster-general, when asked why
England had no parcel post arrangement with the United States, had
to explain that the United States
alono among civilized nations had
no parcel post." He could hot explain why this was. Oourtesty
forbade. But had he been free to
do so he would have had to say that
the reason why the United States
had no parcel post is precisely
similar to the reason why it has no
postal telegraph, namely, that the
groat free nation is tyrannized over
by an aristocracy of monopolizing
corporations.
The Umpire says : There have
just been sentenced at Kew York
two murderers and the penalty im
posed was that of death. The judge
said they would be hanged on the
13th of next February. He forgot,.
however, that under the new law- of
New York state all executions after
January 1 are to be carried out by
electricity. These men cannot therefore be hanged. But the new law
also provides that criminals shall
only be "electrified" whose crimes
were committed after January 1.
These men cannot therefore be
electrified either. What is to be
done with them? They might be
sent to congress.
The Lowiston (Me.) Journal any0;
A caiin of remarkable endurance on
the pint of a hound was learned
Friday. This week a fox hound
belonging to Capt. Mark Percy, of
Cox's Head, near Fort Fopharn,
chased a fox for two days. The dog
was seen in pursuit of the fox aeveral times during the two days, and
his deep baying was frequently
heard. Finally the fox tired out
a.ici fell on the 'ground' sxbansted.
The dog, knowing that he had not
sufficient strength left to fight the
fox, sat down near him and watched
him. In this condition the fox and
the hound were found by a man who
lived near, and tho fox was so exhausted that the man easily killed
him with a club.
A story current in Washington
Inst winter in regard to Lord Sackville was that on one occasion early
in the season his trusted butler
asked for and obtained permission
to visit Baltimore for a few days.
Immediately on his arrival there he
drove to one of the leading hotels
and registered as Hon. Lionel Sackville West. An hour or two later
a note was handed to him, in which
the writer stated that although personally unacquainted with the British minister they were desirous of
extending to him the hospitality of
their house during his stay and
closed with an invitation that he
would be their guest ut dinner that
evening. This invitation was accepted by the butler, who arrayed
himself in full dress attire and
actually attended the dinner, where
throughout the evening he maintained his assumed character with
such cleverness that neither his
entertainer nor the guests asked in
his honor over suspected that he was
other than just what he represented
himself to be, the minister plenipotentiary from tho Oourt of St. James,
LOS DON MURDERS.
London, Jan. 4.-The frightful
murder and mutilation of a little boy
at Bradford last week, with attendant
atrocities, clearly copied from tlio
Whitechapel fiend, and whioh will apparently be fastened upon the local
milkman, has boen followed by tho
news of a terrible murder of a little
girl in a field close to a village road in
Somersetshire, with much tho name
general details. In the same paper,
which gives two columns to these, in
another column narrates the hangmir
of two lads under 20 years of age for
the murder at Tunbndge Wells, and
giving the facts regarding the inquest
on the body of the woman found
mysteriously murdered at Poplar.
The whole subject of murder has become so familiar during tho last couple
of weeks and has occupied such a pro-
doininent place in the public mind
that another Whitechapel murder now
would throw the community into a
frenzy of excitement Tho police nro
watching the whole east end of London with redoubled vigilance. Just
now, as heretofore, the crimes have
invariably happened during a new
moon.
ASOTltir-.lt MURDER.
Loonoon, Jan,, 4.—A young girl has
been found murdered In a field in Somersetshire, the body mutilated in the same
frightful manner as that of the little boy

CAUSED A SENSATION.
Paris, Jan. 4.—Gen. Boulangor's
spirili'd and aggressive addrees to the
electors of the department of Seine
causes a great sensation. It is received
with exultation by the general's supporters who arc to be found in all parties. Bepublican journals denounce
tlio manifesto with much bitterness.
They declare it is a tissue of calumny
and braggadocio unworthy of discussion, and then proceed to discuss it,
KUSKIN DANGEROUSLY ILL.
London, Jau. 4.—It is reported

SIR W5I, PEABCE'S WILL.
Thore are some men who ought to
bo ashamed to look an honest horse
in the faoe, says an exchange. None
of our domeatic animals, however
much they may suffer from neglect,
receive so much abuse as tho horse.
We refer more especially to the
work horse, on the farm and before
the cart and truck. There are many
exceptions, bnt the number of horses that fall under the head of the
abused is sufficient to establish * the
rule. Underfed, overworked, poorly
groomed, and often badly sheltered,
every point in the poor creature is
un expresion of patient suffering.
It is u painful sight to behold . a
horse with the sharp angles of its
bones sticking out in all directions
mul the ribs painfully easy to count,
tugging along In-fore a too-heavy
load, and the driver, with his feet
hanging over the end-board of the
waggon constantly applying the irritating lash to keep the poor creature
from dropping into a listless droning
gait; aud sometimes a team is so
far run down and exhausted that
oven the lash appears to make no
impression. At least, it fails to
quicken the pace or to awaken even
the faintest apparent recognition
from the poor jaded beast. But tho
lash keeps Hying through the air,
all tho same, and the sting of it
must add to tlie sufferings of the
stolid rack-o'-bones. This picture
is not overdrawn. It may be seen
in the streets of any city or large
village cvory working day of tlie
year,

sir it. mobier's defense.
Berlin, Jan.  3.—Sir Robert D.
Morier has caused to bo published his
correspondence  with  Count Herbert
Bismarck in reference to the charges
made by the Cologne Gazette that he
revealed German state secrets to the
French at the time of the Franco-
German   war.     Tho correspondence
shows that Sir Robert Morier wrote
Marshal Bazaine inquiring whether ho
had ever made the charge in a conversation, as allogod by tho  Gazette, to
the effect that the first news of the
Germans creasing the Moselle was con*
veyed to him by Sir Robert Morier.
Marshal Bazaine replied with an emphatic denial which was sent to Count
Herbert Bismarck with nn appeal that
he, as a man of honor, would cause an
immediate refutation of the charge to
be inserted in the  Gazette.   Count
Herbert, in his reply, regretted that
neither the contents nor the tone of his
communication enabled him to comply
with such astonishing demands and
outstep -the limits imposed by his official position in regard to the press.
Sir Robert responded that the only
course now open to him was to publish
the entire correspondence.   He added
thnt while he did not share the belief,
yet the belief was general, that the
contributor of the article to tho Gazette
derived his inspiration  from official
sources.

CHINESE EXCLUSION RILL.
Washinoton, Jan.   4.—The president sent to  tho  senute  to-day  the
following:   "I desire  to supplement,
my message of yesterday, sent to your
honorable body in response to the
senate executive resolution, date Sept,
25th,  1888,  asking transmission  of
certain- communications and correspondence on the subject of the recent
proposed convention with China, and
the' ropiMed failure ot the government
of China to finally agree to the same,
by adding to said  response  to telegrams I oinitlel    therefrom which
were sent iu cipher by  the secretary '
of Btato to our minister at Peking, and
which may be considered by the senate  .
relevant to the subject of its iuquiry.
On e of (ho said despatches is:  'Wash-
ins-ton, Sept, 24,1888.—Denby, minuter at Peking.   Rejection of treaty
is reported here,  what information
have you? (Signed) Bayard.'   Two replies to this despatch were made by
our miniHter to China, dated,  respectively, Sept. 5 and  Sept.   C,  1888.
They were, on Sept. 7, 1888,  sent to
the senate,   The other of said despatches is:   'Washington,  Sept,  18,
1888:—Denby,   minister at Peking.
Bill has passed both houses of congress for total exclusion of Chinese
and awaits the president's approval.
Publio feeling on the Pacific coast is
excited in favor of it,  and tho situation is critical.   Impress  upon the
government of China the necessity for
instant decision in interest of treaty
relations and amity.   (Signed) Bayard.'   The answer of our minuter at
Peking to this despatch,  dated Sept.
21,1888, was yesterday sent to the
senate with the message to which is
this supplement.   Matters herein contained are now transmissablo to the
end that they may, if deemed pertinent, be addressed to the response
already made to the senate resolution
of inquiry, nnd with the intent that
in nuy view of tho subject the answer
to the said resolution may he full and
complete.     (Signed)   Grover Clevo*
land."   The message of yesterday,  to
which tho president refers, contained
a despatch from  the  government  of
Chinn refusing  to  ratify  the  treaty
unless given sn opportunity to discuss
with a view of shortening the period
of tho exclusion stipulation, fixing the
restriction at 20 years.
THE WELLINGTON STRIKE.

long as it is a bad season of the year for

a crisis by tlie Knights of Labor," iaid
Mr. Dunsmuir, "and what thoy do with

HUNTINGTON WANTS  CHINESE.
New York, Jan. 4. — O. P. Huntington has written a letter to the
chambor of commerce which deals with
the drawbacks of the Chinese exclusion
bill and urges the chamber to take
some action toward having the bill
amended or nbrogated. Huntington
does not believe that honest peoplo in
America are opposed to the Chinete
trade, which, no ssys, ia falling off **ith
China because of the bill; and beside*
there is no good reason why China
should not retaliate. In tbat event,
he adds, the American trade now drifting to England and other powers
would be altogether lost.

frldsr Kaenlni. Jan. 4, 1889.
The Vancouver World the other
day, in tho courso of a loading ar*
tide, worked in tho following illus.
tration: "Back oast, in ono of tho
fairest of the Canadian provinces, a
oity of tho loyalists was endeavoring to get out of the old conservative
ruts, and make necessary civio improvements, such as water and light.
An eminent engineer was brought
over from Boston to report, and he
found that he had a good many
* mossbttcks' to deal with. At last,
wearied with their slowness, at a
meeting called to discuss matters,
he informed them that only ono
thing could be dono if they wished
to make their rising city worthy of
its possibilities. They had every
facility, ho said, for building up a
metropolis, a fine country to fall
back upon, easy street grades and
every convenience for a first-class
waterworks system—all they wanted
to accomplish their most sanguine
desires was about half a dozen funerals." The IForW is thankful that
the illustration does not apply to
Vanoouver. "We don't want, happily, any funerals in Vancouver,"
soys our cotemporary. "Wo havo
no small-fisted men and no growlers,
and what is more, we do not want
them. We are confident that for
us the paths lie in plasant places,
and that with a long pull, a strong
pull, and a pull altogether, we will
make Vancouver—the western terminus of the Canadian Pacifio Bail-
way—one of the most populous and
busy cities in tho Dominion." That's
tho way to talk. But, about Westminster 1 Bo we want any funerals
here I Wo trust not; but the question is a very suggestive and import'
ant one—a question that our citizens
themselves should answer.
France has become noted for being
a very restless country politically.
It has almost come to be accepted
that the particular form of govern,
ment whioh may for the time being
obtain in Frank-lund cannot bo expected to outlast many decades.
Prom monarchy to republic, and
vice versa, is lookod upon now as a
matter of course. Tho signs of a
crisis in France have been making
themselves moro and more manifest
during tho past few weeks, observes
an exchange. Almost a month ago
the indications of a disturbance
must have been tolerably clear to
thoso on tho spot, when tho Reactionaries, as the opponents of a ro-
public form of government arc called
in France, took the trouble to present addresses to their respective
leaders and manifestoes to tho people at largo. A deputation from
the monarchist party waited upon
the Oount of Paris and declared:
"Wo come to you because we
are wearied of the republic. It
oppresses and is ruining us. We
need a renovating government.
Landlords, farmers, workmen, we
are all tired of seeing the fruits of
our labor and our savings disappear
in the hands of people who seek in
power but the means of enriohing
themselves at our expense. We de.
sire to live and work in peace, under
a strong and respected government.
We will no longer have the republic.
Wo await your coming with impatience." And other forcible things
to the same effect. Tho count accepted the sentiments with duo interest and pleasure, but in replying
failed, so some of his supporters
think, to bo sufficiently explicit.
The Bonapartist managers issued a
manifesto demanding a plebiscite to
allow France to say whether or no
she will have her present form of
government. The Bonapartists promise to bow unreservedly to the
sovereign will of tho people, whatever it may be. Tho Panama Oanul
failure, taking with it as it has the
hardly earned savings of thousands
of Frenchmen, will not tend to diminish any dissatisfaction that may
exist with tho present state of
things, but would rather aid in precipitating a change. Except from
a spirit of unreasoning restlessness
ana general dissatisfaction, however,
ws do not believe that the Frenoh
people as a whole are at all ripe for
b monarchy, under the circumstances. If some young, chivalrous,
and courageous prince were to the
fore to appeal to the impulses and
siartial ardor of the nation, the  re-
{lublic would almost certainly bo
aid aside to cool for a season. Tho
young Prince Louis Napoleon,
who met such an inglorious and untimely fote at the hands of the Zulus,
while seeing the war in South
Africa, as a guest of the British,
would have filled the bill almost
perfectly, hnd he lived, and, with
hit mother's influence, would probably ere now have ascended the
slippery throne of the Frenoh monarch!. As it is, neither the Bourbons nor the Napoleons have any
particularly eligible representative
to advance the fortunes of their respective families to the necessary
point of inciting French enthusiasm
to tbe pitch of crying "Down with
the republiof "Long live the king!"
France, however, Is full of disturbing
elements, just now—not the least
Tho Victoria Timet of January
2nd, copies an item from tliis paper
relative to the new townsitc of Ladners, but very unnecessarily goes out
of its way to add an inviduous clause
to tiie paragraph in question. The
-Tillies says, referring to the village
of Ladners, "There is no reason why
it should not (blossom into a thriving
town), for it possesses greater advantages than New Westminster,
with tho exception of railway connection." We can alTord to smile
at our recklessly assertive cotemporary, and at the writer of tho
clause quoted abovo, who, Bitting in
his sanctum away down on an island
in tho Straits of Fuca, undertakes to
pen glib wisdom just as if he knew
what ho was writing about and had
carefully and impartially weighed
the subject so rashly and iguorantly
essayed. Westminster hus no quarrel with the townsito of Ladners,
nor shall wo quarrel with our cotemporary of tho Time's, nor oven argue
with it, until something besidos an
unsupported, bumptious, and self-
ovidently unconsidered assertion is
put forward. Wo may be permitted, however, to inquire into tho
motive which prompted this gratuitous and wholly unnecessary fling
at Westminstor. Straws are soul
to show which way the wind blows,
and the wish is often father to the
thought. May not this comparatively trivial expression of the
Times be interpreted by one or both
of tho above rules! What moro
natural than that our Victoria
friends would rejoice to see Ladners
split Westminster! Two small
towns on the Fraser thoy can endure; but one large and important
city—never ! We do not insist that
our Victoria brethren ontortain
such sentiments, but merely suggest
the possibility that such is tho case.
Our readers may judge for themselves. As we have already remarked, Westminster has no quarrel
with Ladners, such as tho Times
would apparently like to see, and
we wish the new townsite every
success. At the same time,we would
take this opportunity to remind our
Westminster readers that they cannot afford to view with indifference
the possibility of new rival towns
springing up adjacent to this city.
While such towns must bo a benefit
to us, if they do not grow at our expense, quito the reverse will be the
case if, through carelessness, stupidity, want of energy, alertness, or
patriotism, or from any othor imaginable cause, we allow our natural
growth to bo distributed and our
proper trade diverted to build up
these adjacent towns. We would
emphasize again, what we havo
called attention to moro than onco
before, that tho presont—heing, preeminently, a growing, a formative,
period iu the history of this province
—marks a critical epoch, not only
in the growth of our various cities,
but as fixing, to a large extent, their
comparative status for tho future—
their destiny in short. A mistake
made, an opportunity lost, an advantage forfeited, now, in matters
touching the city's advancement and
general welfare, will bo hard, if not
impossible, to recover. It is a neck-
and-neck struggle, and must be for
some time. If we fall behind, some
one else must win. Let us, as citizens, individually and collectively,
govern ourselves accordingly. We
have many advantages, but without
alertness and energy these will not
save us. Forward must bo our
watchword.

THE WAY OF LIFE.
(Various Causes Contributing to
Premature Dissolution,. -
Tho Bible speaks of throe scoro years and
I ten as tho age to which man may reasonably
I look forward. It seems as If, at least, bov-
\ enty equable, contented and happy years—
I full of such comfort and gratification ub the
J members of eaeh class in tho community
I hnvo severally a right to expect—should and
| might bo within tho reach of evory man and
I woman. Id somo countries, however, we
1 find this to be much moro nearly the caso
I than with us, says the Boston Herald. Amer-
I leans, as a rule, llvo too fast to llvo long.
I Every person Is originally endowed with
I about so large a stock of vitality out .of
I whioh to fashion his life. It amounts to
I nothing more nor less than the simplest of
I problems in arithmetic to show that If he
j lraws upon this stock twice as heavily as be
E ihould, the duration of bis existence will
[ -inly be one-half of what It was originally
I intended to be. Indeed, the matter stands
['much worse than tbls; his life is likely to
I bo at any moment suddenly cut off short
I long before reaching evon tho half. A steam*
I engine may use up Its fuel Iu two weeks or
I one, according to tho rate at whioh It Is
I driven; If It is sufficiently overworked the
I result may be a gcnerul " smash," or such
Ian injury as will necessitate a long and
I tedious "stopping fcr repairs," If, Indeod, it
I ever becomes "as good as new." We hardily seem ready to recognize the bounds cs-
Itubliflhctl by nature, but when we have
I reached them, tu our greed and ambition,
Ijwo summon our will, and, as tho expression
I runs, "live upon our nerve," congratulating
loursolves on our praiseworthy display of
I" American goahoadativenoBs." Unfortu-
I natcly nature has not yot become sufficlent-
I ly progressive in her ideas to manufacture
I constitutions expressly for tlio American
I market, and, hi the midst of our triumphant
I tour do force, click, something snaps, und
I wo vanish from tho stage, or break down
| for years, porhnpB for life.
What aro tho causes of sudden death-
I by a stroke of lightning) They aro not
I many when only tho so-called natural aeci-
I dents are considered. Death on the instant
■ may result from upoploxy, or bursting of
Ian anouriBm within tho chest oi- abdomen;
I it may bo caused by tho bursting of an au*
l-scoss within tlio chest. Great mental
Ishock—as from extreme anger or grief or
I oven joy—sometimes kills instantly through
I total paralysis of tho chief nerve centers.
I Coses of sudden death from hemorrhages
lof tho lungs aro on record, but thoy nro Tow
I In number. IMsonscs of tho heart render
I the subject liable to instant death,' ami tliuy
yv.ro tho most frequent causes.
Something may bo said descriptive of
| these accidents and diseases which will lu*
I tercst tho general vender. A correct under-
I Handing oil them might possibly render us
I less liable to thorn.  Apoplexy, or, as it Is
I sometimes colled, brain-stroke, is usually
I due to tho rupture of a blood-vessel within
I tho brain.  Instant death Is not tho common
I result of this Injury, and yet, us already
I stated, It sometimes occurs.  Moro often
I the victim ot a sovoro attack passes into a
I condition of stupor, called como, lu whioh
[holies for hours,or oven days,andthon
Ji dies or slowly recovers. There aro manv
I influences which are capable of giving rise
1 to this accident, which In a general way wc
L may attribute to ono of two causes: namely,
I either tho walls of the blood-vessel tu quos*
| tlon are weakened by dogonorative changes,
I and so rupture easily, or they aro whilo
I healthy subjected to an unusual and too
I great a pressure from a rush of blood into
f them, and give way In conscquouco.  The
I walla of tho blood-vesselB degenerate with
I age; as one grows old the liability of their
I rupture under sudden lncreaso ot blood*
[ pressure becomes greater.  Ago is not tbo
, only causo of these weakening changes-wo
! may expect them In all cases whero tho sys-
i; tern Is permanently enfeebled.  In an attack of apoplexy occurring ln a person who
1 has passed tho ago of sixty, wo should
uuturaily assume that tho bursting of tho
| blood-vessel was duo to degeneration of Its
walls. But in ono younger, whe had on*
I joyed fairly good health, wo should expect
" to find that tho direct causo ot tho rupture
I was too great a blood-pressuro.  Wo may
retard degeneration, although wo cannot
} block tho wheels of timo.  Bomo men nt
1 ninety   aro far   less liable to apoplexy
, tlian others of fifty.   In a groat degree tho
| liability is a question of general Health.
Hence tho foar of apoplexy should lead us
\ to undcavor to keep strong aud woll.    As
wo grow old wo should avoid those iufiu-
1 -mces whioh are likely to lnduoo sudden and
great rush of blood to tbe hood, such as in*
tense mental excitement — as In public
speaking or In a fit of anger—violent mus-
i'ulur effort, gluttony and drunkenness, oto,
Whilo one dines at popular cafes ho has but
to look about him aud ho Is quite sure to seo
habits Indulged provocative of apoplexy. A
iumillar sight is tho man about sixty years
old whose highest pleeiwe li ln tickling his
palate.   Be is ovor-weigM by fully fifty
pounds; his faco is rod and shining; he Is
full to bursting, and looks as though ovorv
important button on bts olothing was throat*
_  encd. Ono on a warm day gives such a
I   manes "wide a berth" as ho would a cook-
stove; he ts altogether too hot to sit near.
Ho commences his dinner with an appetizer
-generally a cocktail. Then ho deliberately
> "fills up," largely on meat and  other
"hearty." foods, all o! whlofcIM wasliod
down with one st least, end generally two,
bottles of lager beer. As he eats and arums
with one hand, he fans himself vigorously
1 with tho other, all tho time growing redder
and redder, and, finally, whon he hoists
himself out of hts chair, his faco takes a
purplish hue tn consequence of evon that
I  slight effort   Ho Is liko a violin whon tn
tone; every part ot his system is koyed up,
and something Is suro to brook tf tho unusual happens.   Let suoh a man, soon after
dinner, bocomo violently enraged or shocked
by some unexpected calamity,   and  the
chances are an attack ot apoplexy Is the
conBcquonco. Too much Importance has, it
ts truo, beon attributed to tbo so-called ap.
optectlo constitution, consisting of short*
ness of tho nook, with considerable embonpoint, and what Ib known aa full habit.
Theso characteristics do not mean that there
Is a decided tendency to apoplexy, and yot a
man so formed ought to llvo much differently than ho wbo is "lank and loan."
An aneurism ts a tumor formed by the
dilation of an artery, as tho result of the
bursting of Its Inner and middle coats. Itls
moro liable to occur in persons tn whom do*
generative changes in the arteries aro taking place, It may bo directly caused by
great mental excitement, violent oxertion,
lifting, etc., or local injury. Tho larger the
artery in which the aneurism forms tho
moro serious itls. If within the chest or
abdomon, there Is little chance ot recovery.
The progress of aneurism is slow; death is
sudden in a proportion of coses from rupture, Large abscesses in tho ohest havo
been known to burst and causo Immediate
suffocation. Such accidents are rare, and
so, also, as wo bave already said, is sudden
death from hemorrhage otthe lungs. „In
those cases death, doubtless, is also caused
by suffocation. Strong iraprCBBloua on the
mind will over reflect their Influence on
the vital functions, aud strengthen or prostrate their energies.' "Joy seldom Idlls," it
is true, and yet if tho subject bo of a delicate and sensitive constitution, and moro
especially it ho labors under any complaint
of tho heart, tho conBoquencofl on tho nervous systom of sudden ana immediato joy
will always bo attended with hazard. Many
Instances of fatal effects from that passion
aro recorded, and tho assertion has boon
mado by somo ablo writers on mental
hygiene that sudden joy Ib evon moro
haaardous to lifo than suddon grief. When
extravagant joy follows unexpectedly
terror or griof, tho danger from tho shock
to tho norvous system is heightened. That
fact bos boen illustrated by tho suddon
death of crlminule *.vho havo beon pardoned
at tho point of ex** ution. That'terror, grlof
and ongor aro somotltnes instantly fatal—
at onco paralyzing tho norvous system and
stopping the action of tho hoartr-aro woll
known t for tbo Instances havo boon many.
In disease of tho heart these powerful
emotions are potent agencies of evil. If
death does not occur from a sudden, intense
stiock, tho organ is enfeebled by every.such
experience.
In ull forms of heart discasa-death Ib liable to take place suddenly, and in a large
proportion of cases the evil comes aftor
violent over-exertion. "Heart trouble"
may exist tn a person for a long' timo—even
years—without Its presence being suspected. Such a one enjoying comparatively
good health, and not being conscious of tbo
tided of unusual core, la quite suro, sooner
or later, to mako somo violent * effort—"run
to catch tho train or tho like"—and "life's
thread is snapped." Rupture of tho heart
sometimes tokos pinch whon that organ has
suffered from what Is known as fatty defeneration, and its wulls havo been Weakened
thereby. Sueh an action rarely occurs in
persons under tho age of forty.
"Is it a quick death, a painless death I"
Ib a question which Ib frequently asked of
physicians. Wo bellove tbat in the majority of cases where death comes on tho Instant—as by a stroko of lightning-it is
painless. As has been said, pain is the
product of timo. To experience pain tho
Impression producing It must bo transmitted from tho injured part of tho living body
to the conscious center, must bo received
at the conscious center, ond be recognized by tho mind as a reception; the lust
act being in truth the conscious- act: In '.he
majority of deaths from natural dccldouts
thero ia not sufficient timo for tho accomplishment Of those progressive steps by
which tho consciousness of existence Ib the
first and last fact indicted upon tho stricken
organism, the destruction is so mighty, the
sense of tt is not revealed.

Ion-able W-uuiau of a Great Care.
Arlo Bates, in ono of his gossipy lett era to
tho Providence Journal, writes: There
dwrlls iu n seint-gonteel quarter a widow
wlui.i worth n quarter of a million; and
whose family consists of a pet dog, hersulf
and a smullson, tbe importune'1 of tho itu-ro
coming in about this order; in tuiycuau tin*
boy coinos lust. * * * About a ntotijlt
ugo tho pot, who was ot the Mm--horowi.li
hi->. mistress, was taken Ul. Mr**. Blank
sent for her physician, who was staying in
Huston, to como down to Mount Deal-it tc
sec tho dog. lie rofusod to loave his human patients for a brute ono, and so, although sho was very angry, sho was forced
to come to Boston with tbo invalid, because,
as she explained to an acquaintance, sho
"could not run tho risk of exposing Filomcl
to tbo chanco of being treated by a dootor
who (I'd not understand his constitution."
Arrived in town tho dog improved, but
tho widow's child, who had boon brought
along, began to sicken. Tho doctor ordered
tbo boy out of town, and as tbo widow was
too unxii-ua about her spaniel to leave It,
tbo sun was confided to tho core of his
nurse, who tool; him to the seashore, at a
place not so fur removed from Boston ns to
ho out of tho rnugo of tbo doctor's care.
The child, neglected by tho nurse, who fell
lulo a violent flirtation  with   tho head
alter of tho hotel whero they wero staying, grew worao. Ono aftornoon tbo doctor
took tbo train down to seo tbo child, and
found tho poor littlo fellow til in bed, and
left wholly alone, whilo tho nurse was out
walking with her friend, tho head waiter.
Tho doctor, who iB a man of somo determination, took tho Invalid tn a carriage
and drovo across tho country half a dozen
miles to the cottago of hts sister, into whose
cnro ho gave tho small sufferer. When ho
returned to town ond told tho mother of
what ho had dono, Bho said, effusively:

PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH.
Native-Born Americans Who Cling to tha
Customs or Tholr Fathers.
It is not generally known, oven by people
who havo visited America, that there Ib in
Pennsylvania, vory near the cities of Philadelphia and Now York, a population of
moro than two million Inhabitants which U
ln many respects strangely liko what r.s
rural ancestors woro in Germany more than
two centuries ago. Somo years since, says
tho Boston Tramcript, thore wore to be bocu
in a shop In Philadelphia several largo book-j
of Lutheran devotion, ln tho typo und spelling of 1540, bound In deeply-stamped whito
vellum, with heavy brass clasps. They did
not look like imitations of old books, thoy
seemed to bo "tho thing Itself;" but the date
was recent. "Thoy aro for tho Pennsylvania Dutch," sold tho bookseller. "Thoy
would not beltovo that tho Lord would hear
them tf thoy prayod to Him out of a modern
book. And thoso books, as you bco them,
havo been printed nnd bound In thut style
for nearly two hundred years for tho Pennsylvania Dutch market, Just as thoy wero
printed for their ancestors during the
Reformation."
Thoro Is probably no more striking Instance of conservatism to bo found any*
whero in Europe than this; but tho spirit
manifested by tho worthy "Dutchmen'" Is
carried out by them consistently in overy
thinggIbo. "Followthy father, good'ton,
and llvo as thy father before thoo haa done,''
Is tholr golden rulo of lifo. Firstly, tbey
always speak among tbomsolves a singular
patois called Pennsylvania Dutch, from the
word Doutseh. "It bolongs," soya Dr.
Bausman, in his edition of the poems of Dr.
H. Harbough, "to too South Germans
UalectB," and, while partaking of all, " it is
most closely olUod to the PfeUlsch'--tbut
Is, to tho Rhine Gorman of the Palatinate.
Io the valloy of tbe Busquehanns, and beyond tho Alloghany, tt is much mlugjAl
with English. Farther In tho wost wo and
in it traces of Scottish, Irish, Swedish and
Frenoh. It Is specially remarkable to Its
having retained groat numbers of old aud
curious German words, sueh as aro now to
bo hoard only ln tho remotest places of the
Fatherland. We find the induciico of the
unchangeable English nrtiolo tho in der.
Thus a man will say: "Hou—schorr dor

horse; wo will goto markstl"

frontage and wharves extending 460
feet directly in front of the milli, and
with plenty of water for heavy draught
vossola nothing stands in tho way, but,
on tho contrary, all is favorable, for
the company's future projects. A
considerable amount of money was
spent during tlie year in putting in
new nnd improved machinery, increasing the capacity of the mills aud in
building extensions made necessary by
the increase of business. The company has doubled tho number of men
in its employ within a year and now
keeps 90 hands steadily at work, whose
wages run from $20 to $75 por month,
with board. The str... Iris, owned hy.
the company, is employed in connection with the mill. During the year
just closed the Brunette Saw Mills
almost doubled its out-put in every
branch of its manufactures, and ao
large has been the increase that the
company is rapidly gaining a position
and namo equal to the best in the
country. The out-put for 1888 was
as follows.
Lumber 7,000,000 feet
Mouldings 2,500,000 "
Shingles  3,500,000
Laths  1,000,000
Fish boxes       60,000
A considerable quantity of the abovo
manufactures was shipped to the
interior and to the Northwest territories, where the oompany ia well aud
favorably known for its promptness in
business affairs and for the excellence
of its work. The local demand in the
past has been ao great that very little
effort was made by the management
to increase outside business, the mill
being taxed to its utmost to
fill orders, but a large addition to the
capacity of the mills is now contemplated, which, when completed, will
put the Brunette Mills in a position
to bid extensively for outside trade.
Mr. J. B. Kennedy is president of the
company and Mr. H. L. DeBeck, manager and secretary.
THE   INDUSTRY  EXTENDING.
The erection of several new saw mills
at New Westminster will take place
during the present year, the most noteworthy of which will be the Ross-McLaren mills, now under construction.
These mills will have a capacity of at
least 300,000 feet per day and probably
600,000 feet if certain timber limits are
secured. The mills will employ close
upon 1000 men, which means an immense addition to the wealth of the
city. The lumber cut by the Ross-McLaren company will be principally for
foreign market and vessels are expected to be loaded at the rate of one per
week during the whole year after the
mills are in operation. Another large
mill will be erected on Herring's point,
opposite the oity, by a number of local
ana Englsh capitalists, and work will be
commenced on it early in the spring.
Tbe output will be for both the local
and foreign markets.
On the whole, the outlook for the
coming year in the lumber industry is
exceedingly bright, and, by the extensive additions to be made to the mills
now in operation and the erection of
new mills, the progress of Westminster
will receive an additional impetus and
her prosperity thereby increased.

The attorney-general having absolutely ref nsed a new trial in the celebrated Dr. Griffin case, no argument

Seven carloads of live stock arrived
from the interior last evening. Conductor McKenzie and Engineer Sparrow brought in tho train, and being
questioned as to why they carried such
a large slipper on the u352" said that
the good wishes of their friends in the
way of slippers wore to strong that they
had to carry n large ono to announce
* that no moro will be received. They
have joined the noble army of benedicts quite recently.
With respect to Mayor Oppen-
heiiner's communication to Westminster oity council (a copy of whioh wo
have alao to acknowledge tho receipt
of), touching tho matter of organizing
a Fruit Growers' Aisociution, we arc
in a position to state that the question
is under consideration. Woitminster
haa already had some experience in
thia connection. We should imagine
that a provincial Fruit Growers' Asoci-
ation might very appropriately bo attached tu a branch institution to our
Provincial Agricultural Association.
In our advertising columns on this

Four ycung men, whoso names are

so many calls that they woro unablo to

Highway Bobbery.
Two strangors from England fit route
for Seattle, arrived in this city last
night on tho steamer Islander. They
wore met nt tho wharf by two men who
offered to carry their valises nnd blankets to ono of tho city hotels for the
sum of ono dollar. Not understanding
tlio distanco and wishing to bo guided
in a strange place, the strangers gave
thoir effects to ono of the men nnd
walked with the other. On Yates
Btreet the man walking with the
strangers demanded $1.50 for carrying
tho articles and stood arguing until the
man with the valises walked off with
thorn. The other man followed immediately and loft the strangers on the
street. The police wero notified and
found tho valises on board tho steamer,
rtiturncd by the thieves after they had
opened tliom. When tho highwaymen
were found this morning it was discovered that tho strangers had gone
across the Sound and no evidence
could be obtained to place the scoundrels on trial,—FtefoWa Times.
A Cowardly Gang,
Chief Sheppnrd and his corp of polico
are surely long suffering and slow to
wrath. On Now Year's morning about
1 o'olock, a gang of hoodlums began to
pester the band of tho Salvation Army;
some of the offenders were on horseback, and rode into the ranks of the
others. This bit of "fun'' was stopped
by the Chief, but Inter tho aamo lot of
toughs tried to get into the Army's
hall on Fort street, and whon refused
admission and stopped by tho police,
retaliated with the hoodlum's weapon,
stones, whioh How pretty lively for a
time. One of thorn struck Officer Abel,
and others whizzed by tho ears of Chief
Sheppard and Officer Levin in anything
but comfortable fashion. In many
cities such an attack on tho police by a
mob would have resulted in a severe
fight, and blood would probably have
been shed. It is hard to keep cool in
such cases, but trouble lias boon saved
by not being too hasty, although a good
"basting" would no doubt have an
effect on the gang who were so cowardly in their actions.--- Victoria Standard.

Kerry Cow.
Tho managers of the oil region circuit cannot be commended too highly
fur affording au Oil City audience the
pleasure of witnessing Mr. J. S. Murphy in the romantic Irish drama entitled "Kerry Gow." Those who did
not go missed tho richest dramatic
treat of the season, those who did go
woro delighted, and there was every
reason for their being so. "Kerry
Gow" opened a new path in a rich
field of fancy, which has only yet been
partially explored. To Falconer,
Bouoicault, and others the publio are
indebted for peeps into Irish life in
dramatic representation; but the
"Kerry Gow'- Ib of a quiet order,
turning upon incidents in connection
with families, the key of the whole
being love, the old theme, but which
ia ever new. There was not an inferior
actor in the company, but every member of the troop was an artist and a
favorite with the audience. Even old
"Romeo," who has held up his head
as a fast trotter in this community for
the Inst century, behaved with the
dignity of an old circus horse. Ho
walked up the main stairway, through
the opera house and stood upon the
stage as nicely as lie would in any
city smith shop. The forging of the
horse shoe upon tho stage and the
driving of it was a feat as natural as if
performed at a regular farrier's. Give
us more dramas like Kerry Gow and a
like company.—OU City, Pd,, Derrick.

Tho second session of tho third New
Westminster Teachers' Institute was
held in tho high school room yestorday
afternoon, Mr. H. M. Stramberg,
M.A., vice-president of tho institute,
took the chair at 2 o'clock. Mr, J.
McLennan read a lengthy and instructive paper on "Literature and its Do*
pnrtments," and was followed by Mr.
W. T. Kiuuey with a paper on "The
Teacher Out of School." Mr. Kinney
was happy in many of his suggestions
and his ever humorous utterances kept
the audienco in convulsions. A spirited discusiion followed which lasted
over an hour, after which tho election
ofofficorsfor the ensuing year took
place with the following result:—H.
M. Stramberg, M.A., president; Miss
McDougall and Mr. R. Law, B.A.,
Vancouver, vice-presidents; W, O.

Miss ChriBteo and Mr. W. T. Kenney
were added to the executive committee
The evening session commenced at
7:30 and lasted until 10. The attendance was larger on this occasion than
it was at any of the previous meetings
and much interest waa manifested in
the proceedings. Tho first item on
tho programmo was a paper by D, W.
Sutherland on "First Steps in Grammar," and was followed by Mr. Coatham with an essay on "Systematic
Teaching." A. 0. B. Jaok.M.A., also
gave an essay on "Higher Education."
All these papers were ably and carefully written and contained many valu-
able suggestions to teachers for imparting knowledge to their pupils

Over the lt'orH.
The Industry Still Branching Out and
the Prospect for the Present Year
Brighter Than Ever.
To tho lumber industry Westminster
probnbly owes ns much for its widespread notoriety and fame ns to the
fishing industry, nnd, though the revenue from tho latter is nt present tho
greater of the two, yot the manufacture of lumbor will in a few years outstrip it by long odds. The past year
has been tho most noteworthy on record in the lumber business of Now
Westminster, and the trade generally
has been of a much moro satisfactory
nature than heretofore. From a small
beginning tho mills havo grndunlly extended their scope from n purely local
buiinoss to an extonsivo nml continually growing foreign trade, Fraser
River lumber wns practically unknown
to tho outside world three years Ago,
but today, but to-day Soutli America,
Mexico, China, Australia and other
distant countries knows and appreciates its unequalled qualities and value.
From ull parts tho demand is increasing ntid from new points orders are
being continually received. That tho
fame of our lumber hns been so widely
spread abroad and that nu almost unlimited market is opening up for it, is
due very largely to the exertions and
enterprise of tho
ROYAL CITV PLANINO MILLS CO.
This company is tho largest lumber*
ing concern in the provinco and has
tho doublo advantage of being controlled by the best and most experienced business men in tho trade. "Business on businass principles' is thoir
motto and it iB carried out to the lost
letter. Tho mills and yards of the
Royal City Planing Mills aro situated
a short distanco west of tho railway
station, and cover in all somo 20 acres
of ground. Tho water frontage oxtends
a distance of 1600 foet and a lino of
wharves are built along tho whole
front. A largo whnrf, suitable for loading deep sea vessels, was built during
the past summer, and is more conveniently adapted for loading lumber than
any other in the province. The company is controlled by tho following
gentlemen, who are also its shareholders: John Hendry, president; D,
McNair, secretary; C. M. Beecher,
director; W. A. Duncan, cashier.
Prosperity has been the lot of tho
Royal City Mills during the past yenr,
and it was certainly deserved. To the
untiring and praiseworthy efforts of its
management the city of New Westminstor is indebted for tho port being
re-opened for sea going vessels, the
great benefits from which are already
appreciable. Business increased largely
in overy branch dining the year and
tho value nf tho output ia fully 50 per
cent, greater than that of 1837. The
output for tho year waa as follows:
Lumber 22,000,000 feet
Mouldings 6,000,000   "
Laths nnd pickets 0,000,000
Shingles 7,600,000
Windows manufactured     25,000
Doors       16,000
Total value of abovo manufactures,
$750,000.
Fully half of tho cut of lumber is
is manufactured into doors, windows,
laths, pickets, shingles, cabinet-work,
mantle-pieces, moulding, interior finishings, oto. It is from the re-manufacture of the lumber that the value is
derived, The company, ovor and
abovo tho items given, has done an
immense business in interior finishings
for expensive residences, not only
within the province but in tho eastern
portion of the Dominion and tlio United States. The demand for the beautifully grained cedar, fir and maple
manufactured by the company for interior finishing is constantly growing
and the result of these sales has added
largely to the year's revenue.'
All told the Royal City Mills employ
425 men, who earned during the year
nearly $200,000 in wages. Three
steamers are constantly employed in
towing rafts of logs from the logging
camps and in carrying supplies. During tho last six months fivo vessels
were loaded at the company's wharves
for foreign ports and three moro cargoes would have been exported but
for the scarcity of vessels soeking
freights.
The Royal City Mills furnished the
largest car manufacturing establishment in tho United Stntes, last year,
with several million feet of car timbers,
and bu much satisfaction has the timber given that tho company now wishes
to replace all other timbers with the
British Columbia product, and negotiations are now in in progress for a
year's supply. The shipments to the
Northwest during the year wore equal
to seven large shiploads—a greater
quantity than evor beforo.
Finding byoxperionco that vessels
iu these days of plentiful freights preferred ports whero pilotage and towing
fees are light, even though the conveniences for loading are inferior and
slower, the company has decided tu
build a large tug to further its foreign
trado and make itself perfectly independent of towing companies and their
oxhorbitant ratea, The tug, the keel
of which has already been laid, will be
equal to the beat on the Pacifio coast
and superior to anything in British
Columbia waters. Its dimonsiona will
bo as follows: Length ovor all, 122 ft.;
beam, 21 ft.; depth of hold, 11 ft.;
draught, 11 ft. It will be furnished
with triple-expansion engines and a
boiler to work under a pressure of 100
lbs, of steam. The engines will be manufactured at the company's now machine ahops, which ore managed by the
beat mechanical talent procurable.
During the present year tho manufacturing capacity of tho company will
bo largely increased and other changes
will bo introduced which will keep the
estftblisnmont where it now stands—nt
tho head of the lumber manufacturing
industry of British Columbia.
The Vanoouver branch mill of the
oompany is fully equipped and does
a very large local business in tho same
lines as those manufactured by the
Westminster mills. The value of its
manufactures during the year was the
largest since its establishment.
THB BRUNETTE SAW   HILLS CO.
These large mills aro situated nt the
extreme eastern end of the oity and
occupy a most convenient sito for receiving and shipping, both by rail and
by water. The company under the
careful management of Mr. H. L. De*
Beck, does a large and steadily increasing business, mostly local, and all of
a very satisfactory nature. It is the
intention of the company to branch
out shortly aud ship its manufactures
to tho foreign markets, and ita facilities for doing so arc as good as the
conditions require.    With a water
