NTABTUHO HUMOttM.
' Pabis, Dec. 23.-There was a sudden mul myiterious Bcnsutiuu in Paris
tu day over a report that tlio king of
Greece had abdicated, Since the sudden change of the government iu Bra*
uil, Europeans nre ready to accept al-
Inost any roport of revolution and
bhange of dynasty, uo matter how unheralded or, inexplicable, Tlio old
notion thut governments that have
eon seriously opposed tire secure
i'inniedti-lo oy'vHlii'ow.'recoivod a
severe shook when Dom Pedro fell.
The report in regard to Greece, however, proved unfounded. Hardly had
it been disproved before another Ben-
BAtion wns caused by aiumor that the
Empress of Austria had committed suicide. Thli alao proved to be a canard.
The Parisians aro consequently in such
a skeptical mood they are now disinclined to believo' any news whatever.
Just who has been amusing himsolf
by hoaxing them is, not known. It is
singular that the falBe reports were
not purrent in any other capital.
jt]  THBBMITH SLAVIN KIOHT.
London, :Ddo. ' 28.—It is considered
doubtful in sporting circles just ut
present thut the fight between Slavin
and Smith will take place at ull.
There has been, something dubious
about all the arrangements, and if tho
intention was to work up an advertising aud IH ppodromery schemo the very
beat possible plan was adoptod for that
purposo. Still there is so much un*
certainty about sporting events that
no one. is rash enough to say that positively tho fight will come off, ond
there is a large party of believers ia
the genuineness of the affair.
STILL PROSPERING.
Londos, Dec. 23.—Buffalo Bill's
ahow is having remarkable success nt
Barcelona. Tho Spanish fancy has
been caught by a new feature wliich
hits been introduced in shape of a spectacle representing tho discovering of
America by Columbus,and his Spanish
fleet
MILITARY OlU'EltS.
London, Deo. 23.--The coniman-
dors of the western military districts of
Russia have bean ordered to fnrm
plans for the mobilization of thoir
forces.
int. peter's fate.
Berlin,  Deo.   23.—The   German
£rcss are not yet ready to admit that
Jr. Paters, of tho African relief expedition, is dead. Many papers urgo
the government to send an exploring
party to clear up the doubts as to Dr.
Peter's tate.
erally are becoming sceptical of the
continued professions of peace made
from day to day by the rulers of the
central European powers and their
prime ministers. They say thero is
too much talk of peace. Only the
other day the czar assured tho world
that he did not believe that "peace
would bo broken," whilo the week bo-
fore, talking of Italy, he wub even
more optimistic. But these potentates
do not give an earnest evidence of
their convictions by disbanding a pur-
tiuii of their enormous armies. If
there were less said about peace by the
masters of the very big battalions the
people of Europe would be more hopeful. A few days before the outbreak
of the Franco-German war, Lord Granville, who waa then foreign secretary,
declared that thoro waa uot a cloud on
'the political sky. The fact is that any
ono of a thousand possible accidents
might precipitate Europe into war any
week. Cisai-a, emperors and kings ore
at the mercy of circumstances and
though for tho moment circumstances
tend toward peace, while the potentates aro expressing suoh pacific sentiments their soldiers are armed to the
ti*uth and all tho powers of the state
are employed in daily preparing for
immediate war,

succumbed to an attack of influenza
complicated with au old affection of

VEHY   UNCERTAIN.
Lisbon, Dec. 23.—Uneasiness prevails among bankers and merchants
here because of the evident untrust-
worthiness of advices frum Brazil. A
private cablegram received in cipher,
from the northwest coast, at London,
quotes different figures for exchange
from that allowed to puss the the censorship ut Rto for direct cabling to Lis-
bou. It ii difficult to calculate a basis
for commercial transactions, mid the
actual situation in Brazil is left in uncertainty.
A Ult ANU FIZZLE.
Burqes, Dec 23.—Jem Smith am?
Frank Slavin fought ou private grounds
three milea from here this morning.
Tho friends of both parties squabbled
from (he outsot. The Smith patty
seemed inclined to prevent thu mooting and placed overy iibstnoje they
could in tho way of bniigltig the uiun
together. At the ring oido tho proceedings woro disgraceful, and the ring
was finally broken up and the light declared a draw, lu tiio first and second
rounds Slavin fotcod the fiirhi, and got
in some heavy blows on Smith's chesl
and head; both men fell together at
tho end of tho second round and Slu-
vin arose bleeding from the mouth,
Iu the third round Smith sont his
right and loft home with telling effect,
and Slavin ended the round by knocking Smith down. In the fourth and
fifth rounds the fighting was fait and
furious. In tho (1th Slavin landed
a terrific blow on Smith's
eye; Smith fought Slavin to
theropos. In the 7th some of the
crowd kicked Slavin several times.
Neithor Slavin nor hii seconds mado a
protest against this action. In tlio 8th
round Slavin knocked Smith completely off his pins ; tho spectators in tho
9th round struck« Slavin repeatedly.
In the Ilth Slavin again sent Smith
to grass.   In the 13th the Smith sym-
Sathizers again attacked Slavin, Smith
aving been knocked down. In the
Uth round Slavin mado an appeal to
the crowd for fair play; sympathizers
of Smith derided Mm by raising tho
cry of ''Police" and bolted. Smith also
fled but Slavin remained in tha ring.
The alarm of polioe proving falso,
Smith returned with hii followers but
the referee refused to allow the fight
to go on. He said it was impossiblo
to obtain fair play and declared tho
fight a draw. Slavin showed very
little effect! of punishment at the ond,
and was as full of fight ai at the shrl.

OF JEWISH   DESCENT.
London, Deo. 21.—It may not be
generally known that Emin Pasha is,
or was, a member of the Jewish faith.
He was born at Oppen, in Prussia, In
the year 1840, and iu tho register of
tho Jewish congregation his birth is
registered thus: "The child of Isank,
son of Lebel Schwitzer, born on Sun*
day, bBing on tho 24th of tho month
Adar, (29th March) of the year of the
world B00O." In tho civil register his
father's name appears as Louia and his
own as Edward. ' His father died when
Emin was five years of age, und his
mother, nee Pauline Schwitzer, daughter of a Jewish banker of Keisse, iu
Silesia, soon nftewards became a convert to Christianity. The future
Emin, after service in Turkey, embraced the Mahomedan faith and married a daughter of the govornor of
Janina. It was this Jewish origin that
led some of tho anti-Semitic journals
In Germany to oppose the tobcuo expedition on its first being proposed.
Emin, who is by profession a medical
man, has with him an apothecary from
Tunis, whom Stanley calls Vita Pasha.
This man is a Jew; his real name is,
Haim, of which Vita is an equivalent.
SINGULAR CIRCUMSTANCE.
Tom's River, N. J., Doc. 21.—The
mixing house in the United Statea
Dynamite Company's works, about two
miles north of here, was burned this
morning. Wm. Thompson was burned
to death, Robt. Madkifl seriously
burned, and his recovery doubtful.
The building watt a mere shell and
contained several hundred pounds of
dynamite which burned instead of ex*
plotting. Thompson was taken from
the ruins burned to a crisp, the brains
being exposed. Mattkiff was found
outside tho building, near the door,
where ho probably fell while trying to
escape. His face and arms were frightfully burned. Both men reside at
Tom's river and have families. The
causo of the fire cannot be ascertained,
but it was supposed that in mixing tho
dynamite compound it caught tiro and
Hashing, instead of exploding, set firo
tr> the building. The loss to the company will nut exceed $1,000.
POWDERLY IN TROUBLE..
Scranton, Pa., Dec. 21.—Constable
Thomas Washabang, of Greensburg,
commissoued to arrest General Master
Workman T, \. Powderly, on a charge
of conspiracy made by ex-Representative Callaghan, arrived here to-day.
He went at once to the office of Alderman Fuller nnd asked him to endorse
the warrant. This Mr. Fuller refused
to do as tho warrant did not set forth
thu charge. Washabang protested,
but to no purposo. Washabang then
wont to Judgo Archibald's oilice, but
tho magistrate not only endorsed
Aldermen Fuller's action, but warned
tho cu nst 1 bio uot to attempt to arrest
anybody on a warrant which did not
set forth the offence. It is supposed
that Washabang then loft the town.
Mr. Powderly lias determined to begin
an notion against Callaghan for libel.
All his correspondence with Callaghan
has already been submitted to his at*
tornoys. Mr. Powderly claims that
tho matter contained in Caltnghau's
letter to him and the charges which
Callaghan has made public from time
to time in tho papers, furnishes him
with ntnplo grounds for an action for
libel.

It is learned that ex-Major McLeod

Archbishop Walsh delivered an address at the DeLasalle institute, Toronto, on Friday, on the subject of
Catholic education. It was true, he
said, that a crusade was being made
againat the Catholic minority in Upper
Canada; but he had full confidence in
the sense of justice of the Ontario
people, and believed that this wave of
fanaticism would not sweep them into
any act of injustice towards the minority.
The Ontario Alliance spent Thursday morning diiouasing the new party
question. Rev. Dr. Sutherland's
straight new party amendment was declared out of order. The chairman's
ruling on this point being objected to,
it waB put to a vote and the ruling was
sustained. Alderman John McMillan,
tho prospective opponent of Mayor
Olark for the mayoralty, moved that
Sutherland's amendment be modified
ao aa to keep the new party question
out of any contest in which either of
the old parties accepts its platform,
and this compromise was accepted al*
most unanimously. The convention
then adjourned to attend the. funeral
of Rov. Dr. Williams.

Tbe British Oolumbia papers have
made a statement, which is denied by
the Hon. Edward Stanley, eldest son
of tho governor-general, to tho effect
that the injury to tho British war vessel Amphion wai caused by the desire
expreiscd by Lsdy Stanley to have a
closer inspection of the bold scenery
along the shore, but that her captain
wai too manly to make this defence.
The denial Bays that there wat a dense
fog at the time of the accident, and
that it would have been impossiblo to

desire was expressed by any of tho

Children Cryfor Pitcher's Castoria
The Columbian aide-de-camp detached for special Christmas duty
started down town this morning ou the
hunt for descriptive articles in relation
to local commerce. Tbe snow served
to brighten up the streets considerably
and give them the true Christmas aspect. All that was wanted was the',
tinkling of the sleigh belts to complete
tho acene. The first store tackled was
that known to everybody is
AU BON MAKCHB. .
This house is making a very excellent
display of Christmas presentation goods
iu leather, plush, out glass, brass, oxidized silver and in all the prettiest
forms of use and ornament, English
dolmans and ladies' jackets- are also
specialties, with the firm, ranging in
pw»;fion(i die cheapest to the most
-expensive. - They have also -a fine display of silks in moire antique,brocaded,
watered, surah and watered striped
velvet.; The selection of gents' furnishing goods is excellent and includes
everything from walking sticks to hats.
In winter underwear there is a wide
range, also in furs, mantel cloths,
Indies' jerseys, fans, sealette coats,
silk handkerchiefs, fancy table coven,
ribbons, blankets and comforters. The
store is large and well-lighted and a
staff of courteous clerks are present to
attend to the wants of the customers.
The window ahow wade by tbo Au
Bon Marehe is very creditable, and will
attract many to visit the still moro interesting interior. The prices at this
well known establishment are folly' in
keeping with its distinguishing .title,
au ooh marehe, tho placo for good
bargains.
J. E. PHILLIPS
Has many things of interest to show
his customers this season. One of
them is his great Uno of trunks and
valises, portmanteaux," walking sticks .
and umbrellas, and, indeed, all manner
of travelling gooda. Neckwear for
gentlemen and all the fine haberdashery peculiar to them, Mr. Phillips is
displaying in strong Christmas ranges
that must attract attention from all
standing in need of these goods.
Ready made olothing is another prominent feature in this establishment
that is sure to attract wide attention.
Mr. Phillips hss laid in a comprehensive stock of these goods to suit all
tastes. In hats he can supply anything
from the stately stovepipe to tlie humble crown-patch, in every style and
prico. Gentlemen's underwear is also
one of Mr. Phillips's.heavy specialties,
and ho refuses to stand seoond to any
houie in town in this respect. Courteous treatment of and prompt attention to customers has been and is the
motto of this enterprising merchant,
and all visiting hit store will find the
visit profitable.
CHAS. MCDONOUGH,
One of our pioneer merchants, is
making a display inthe lines of goods
handled by him that is second to none
in tho city. It was difficult to approach
him this morning, not that he discovered any reserve in manner, but hia
large establishment was already filled
with customers and Mr. McDonough
wus personally attending to their
wants. Mr. McDonough is pretty
proud of his latsat importation of
cheese and creamery butter, direct
from the beat factories in the eastern
townships. A nibble at the oheeto
and a taste of the butter convinced the
reporter ot their genuineness, for the
Bcribe lived for years where these
goods were manufactured and know
what the quality ought to be. Mr.
McDonough also carries splendid lines
of staple and fancy groceries, all good
Btook, and the makes of the moat noted
manufacturers. In fancy crockery and
glassware, he carries a number of lines
that are peculiarly suitable for Christmas gifts, as an inspection of them will
prove to the satisfaction of all.
H. HOBBY & CO.
claim, with considerable grounds for
justification, to have the largest stock
of toys in the city. The diiplay tbey
make is well calculated to send the
juvenile mind into ecstacies of delight;
there are toys of every kind and of
every material, wood, tin, iron and
rubber, and ingenuity seems to have
exhausted itself in their production.
Albums are one of Morey & Co'a extra
strong displays; they are in wonderful variety. In hand painted cards,
plush goods, smoker's sets, tea sets
and fancy stationery, pspetries, the
house makes a grand showing. Those
inolined to athletics aud "the manly,"
can here get a natty little pair of
swinging clubs or a fine set of boxing
gloves wherewith to indulge these propensities; Messrs Morey & Oo. have
them iu several grades. Individual
cups and eaucors finely decorated and
very suitable for gifts are in great variety, alio presentation volumes of
Shskeapearo, Dante and other great
works, with illustrations by famous
artist), The artistic eye of tho reporter waa instinctively attracted to
several sketches in water colors, whioh
turned out to be signed artist's proofs
on satin, of Shakespeare's home aud
surroundings. These delightful pieces
of tine art should sell well. In all
other departments of Christmas goods
Morey & Oo. are well In the front rank
and one of their speoial lines iu particular is musical instruments of which
they have an immense variety at modest prices,
MISS PEEBLES
has some ohoioe lines of fine boxed
stationery whioh she takes pleasure in
showing; there is an ample variety to
choose from, the (goods ranging from
the ordinary qualities up to Pirie's and
Crane's very best ln fancy needlework of every description Miss Peebles
Is without a rival in the province, in
fact her's is the only fancy needlework
atore in Britiih Columbia. She hu a
splendid display of embroidered silk,
crewel and Mont Mellic work, something quite new, stamped and embroidered linen, and a score of other specialties in this line enough of them-
■elvei to make an art oxhibition. Misa
Peoble's show of Ohinese goode ie
worth attention and is very interesting.
Toys, plush, leather, brass and ailver

The institution of Christmas us a
purely Christian festival is attributed to Tolesphorus, who flourished
A, D. 138 to 161, but tho firstcer-
tain traces are to be found in tho
time of the Emperor Commodus
(180-192 A. D.). A littlo more
than a century later, whilst Diocletian was keeping court in Nicooio-
dia, word was brought to him that
the Christians were celebrating the
birthday of Josus in ono of thoir
churches, The tyrant at once ordered
every doortobesecured,aiulthe building tired, which being dono, every inmate was burned to death. In the
earlier centuries of the Christian
era Christmas appears to have been
a very movable feast, but gradually
a number of other ohurch festivals
of importance grouped themselves
around that of tho Nativity, and
for the sake of convenience, probably, Christmas day was made a
fixture in the calendar. It is very
improbable, however, that we keep
the correct day, as December 25th
in Judea is in the midst of the rainy
season, and it is very unlikely that
at that time shepherds would have
been watching their flocks by night
on the open plains.
The heathen nations of Europe
formerly regarded the winter sol-
stico as being a most important part
of their yoar. Many of them were
fire worshippers, and when they
became Christianized some of their
customs still remained, and ancient
heathen superstitions are today
found in the social peculiarities of
the Germans, English, Swedes and
othors. Tho yulo log and the
Christmas tree, the mistletoe and
snapdragon, all probably are more
or less connected with the old heathen superstitions of Europe. Thus,
tho yule log is beyond question a
relic of the sun worshippers, and in
former times great pomp and rejoicing marked its ignition. Hopes
were attached to tho log and it was
dragged by tho guests until deposited on tho open hearth. Then it wus
lighted by a torch preserved from
tho log of the previous year. Unless
this happened, there could be no
luck for the house, and therefore it
was most necessary that the tiro to
ignite the yule log should be conveyed only by a brand kept from tho
festivities of the previous year.
Christmas as a religious festival
is ls-pt with great solemnity by the
Rqmun, Creek and Anglican
churches, hut the remainder of
Christendom has never shown much
disposition to follow this lead, pre-
fcring rather to make it a purely
homo and social day of great rejoic
ing. The Puritans, indeed, at one
timo went farther, actually forbidding ail rejoicing on Christmas day,
and ordering its observance as a day
of humiliation. England, howover,
even in her most Puritan days, never
look kindly to a curtailment of
Christmas fun, and with the restoration of Oharles II., the "good old
times" wero not merely revived, but
somo utterly bad new customs inaugurated tocelebrate them. Gradually these have boen eliminated, and
today Christmas is a time of innocent mirth, of kindliness, and of
home gatherings. Many of the old
customs have gone, before matt1, r of
fact modern civilization, but some
still remain. Thus, we believe, it is
still the custom for the ohoir of
Ohrist Ohurch, Oxford, to mount to
the top of their college at daybreak
and thero sing a selection of hymns,
whilst another college celebrates the
day by dining oil' boar's head, conveyed into the refectory with much
pomp of begowned dons and surpliced
undergraduates, marching in solemn
procession and singing the while,
The Christmas carol singing,
which once seemed likely to die out,
has, during the past thirty years,
boen resuscitated, and in England,
upon every Christmas eve, nearly
every parish sends out its ehoir to
chant in the silence of tha night,
. ^J'Hark the horald angels sing,"
'.S^ThHst'iittle children peep from
tholr casements to seo the singing
biys-oineaih their windows. This
earol sltiging custom is certainly
very ancient, and one very quaint
old German legend tells that King
Wcnceskus set of! one Christmas
ove through the snow to feed the
poor, his servant following him; but,
complaining of tho cold, he was told
hy the good king to walk in his
footsteps, and upon doing so the ser-
van^ng longer felt the chill. The
niorajTiipriyoyed seems to be that, if
oue doN geod to others, like Wen-
caftan, did he will feel the benefit
of it'himself, This sentiment we find
co-ttttnTj*' cropping up in Christmas
lite'Jturp, and that great modern
apoJMe,'. o(' yuletido, who so well
praotisc*f.what ho preached in this
rr»p#t,, Oharles Dickens, never
Ural of- inculcating very much the
■me do-ttrine. May the spirit of
iWsy'jfet to come, whioh turn-
Jgo from a miserly our-
nimtgepn.'into a human being, help
u«V*>o, .'nil may it be said of us, as
it wt» af him, that we know how to
keep-. Christmas wttfflit any men
alive posies, that knowledge."
Till! grand Auditorium at Chicago,
which was dedicated a little over a
week ago in presence of President
Harrison and many othor of tho
most distinguished men of the coun-
toy, is beyond comparison, observes
an exchange, the largest and grandest operatic structure in tho world,
and in respect to the particular purpose for which it was intended is declared to bo the grandest achievement of human art and ingenuity in
any age. The prime objects of a
structure of this kind are that the
music—low and high notes alike—
may be distinctly heard, and that
performers and spectators alike may
distinctly seo and be seen, In the
Auditorium five thousand brilliant
electric lights made the vast interior
in its every part as bi.^ht as a sunlight day, and over tho borders of
the stage, the exquisite proscenium
arch, tho immense orgau and tho
grand foyor, blazed a chain of incandescent lights more than a thousand
in number. The sceno was magically beautiful. As to acoustic effect, tho science of sound has been
exhausted in this case. The Auditorium proper is a marvel in this respect, boing modeled after the speaking trumpet, tho stage being the
apex of a hollow cone, the walls
gradually diverging and again converging toward the arched roof, with
the result that every gentlest tone is
caught and distinctly hoard, and
every impulse in the heaviest volume of sound is reverberated. The
architecture of tbe exterior and the
artistio effects of the interior are in
elegant keeping with tho admiral
arrangements for spectacular and
operatic effects, and the whole bears
high tribute to nineteenth century
progress. It will be hard to produce at the World's Pair, wherever
it may be held, a prouder exhibit of
American enterprise, art, skill,
soience and taste than is furnished
by this great structure, to match
which the world may with safety
be challenged, and allowed an indefinite period fornnattempt toexcel
it. And the Auditorium is but one
of the many outgrowths of Chicago's
incomparable energy and determined
capacity,

SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
A French physician has been successful with a much larger percentage of va c<: inn lions on the leg than
on tho arm.
Tho discovery of an ocean current coming from the unexplored
region beyond Spitzborgen is the
subject of a communication to be
considered by the Bremen Geo
graphical Society. Tho current was
encountered during tho summer by
Drs. Kukenthnl and Walker, and
was vory Btrong from the middlo of
July to the middle of August, steaming through the entire Olga Strait
from north to south, and turning
southeastward off King Oharles
Land.
In a catalogue of Mexican meteorites prepared by M, Antonio del
Castillo, ono mass is mentioned
which was broken up and fell in
widely dispersed frogrneut3, portions
boing found in three places at the
angles of a triangle whose two longer sides were some 55 miles and 35
miles. In one of these places two
plates were discovered about 250
yards apart, having evidently formed ono huge plato, weighing more
than 80 tons, which broke near the
ground.
Unlike fog, haze commonly occurs during an unusually dry state
of the lower air. In considering its
cause, Mr. F. A. E, Russell suggests that the small quantity of non-
transparent matter required to produce the dimming effect should bo
borne in mind. If tho eyo can observe tho color produoed in a drop
of water by the fifty-millionth of a
gramme of fuchsine, possibly a
weight of water or dust not much
greater would suffice for visibility in
a column of air 1000 feet long. The
air is at all times charged with dust-
partiolee to a degree difficult to
realize. The purest air tested by
Mr. Aitkin previous to his measurements on the top of Ben Nevis contained about 34,000 dust-particles
to the cubic inch, which would give
35,232,000 particles to every cubic
foot, or 35,232,000 to a horizontal
column of 1000 feet. Itis manifest
that a condensation upon a small
proportion of these, or an agglomeration of asmall proportion into larger
groups, or a momentary adhesion by
electrio attraction, would suffice to
produce optical effects.

THE GREAT DECLARATION.
Where Its signers Were Born and What
PiofeMioni Tbey Followed,
The signers of the great Declaration
of Independence, the colonies they represented, their nativities and professions were as follows:	
Wlm mi wlwrt
bales of people who go on tremendous
iproes every few months, These sprees
aro lurid while they last, hut once ended
eho drunkard resumes hia normal condign as a sober, respectable citizen. Well,
I have been out with a company whose
manager la subject to'periodicals,* not
of intoxication, but of insane ambition
to'runashow.' His name is F—, and he
accumulates the money lie squanders on
.tho road as a Philadelphia real-estate
agent. Our party was got together,
in this oity by an old actor who
had become the owner of a play re-
Hcmbllng 'Zo Zo, tho Magic Queen/ ln its
details. Because of his long experience
behind the footlights the ancient Thespian, who was both star and proprietor, put
ibis name in big letters on the bills and
addod this quotation: -In my time I
have done the State some service.' As
a result wherever we played during the
first week out the audiences and tiie
papers assumed that he was an ox-convict who blazoned his shame for advertising purposes. Business was very bad
and when we opened on Saturday night
at Nashua, N. E, only 817 had gone Into
the box office. Wo couldn't stay ovor
Sunday, pay hotel bills and get back to
Now York on that and what little
was left of the star's capital, tut oor employer was full of resource. He ordered
every one to paok his luggage and be
road*}- to leave on the nine p. m. train.
Thon he bought a decayed fish and hired
abootblaok for a quarter to take it into
the gallery, and in the middle of the
lecond aot throw it atthe leading lady.
Che fish was thrown,, the curtain went
town, and the star stepped out to pro-
-est against the 'outrage.' By tho time
he had quit talking we were In the depot. He joined ns just as the train
started. When the audience went away
I don't know.
Well, ln New York our employer met
F and dumped the whole outfit on him
■—contracts, scenery actors and drama.
F— decided on a Southern tour, and we
gradually worked down to the Gulf, not
playing to muoh business, but getting
salaries regularly, for awhile at least.
The crash oamo at a town about fifty
miles from Mobile. We got off the train
at three in the afternoon, and were met
by a delegation of citizens whose spokesman told us the only thing undecided
was whether we should be lynched or
simply tarred and feathered. Kettles
and ropes were both at hand, and, as our
hosts all oarried arms, the prospeot was
not a pleasant, one.- To say we were
astonished but feebly expresses the situation. We had never boon In the town
before, and could imagine no way by
whioh we could have incurred suoh demonstrative ill will. F—managed to
got in a word or so and asked an explanation. Then it came out that our
advance agent was running the jim-jams
a closo race, and that, not content with
billing the town, he had gone out the
previous evening and covered the tombstones and monument in the Confederate
soldiers* cemetery with three-sheet
posters. That was why the people wero
mad. They awoke to find the records of
thoir heroic dead plastered over with
gaudy pictures of young women u
tights, and they Immediately knocked
in the head ot a tar barrel and waited
'for us. After a deal of talking we got
away, but they oaught our advance agent
that night."
"What became of him?'
"I don't know. Wo never stopped to
inquire. The experience sobered us up,
> and F— took an account of stook. Ho
figured that he had dropped 81,500 and
decided to quit managerial business for
awhile. He bough c us tickets to Now
York, sent us hom-j and here we are,"-—

AUTOMATIC FOG SIGNAL.
f Electricity Sounds the Steam Whistle and
* Record* the Bcsult.
A new fog-signaling apparatus has
lately been perfooted In England which
is of sufficient merit to attract the attontion of all those interested in the
saving of life and property at sea. It
calls into use eleotrioity, whioh admits
of the signals being automatically
workod and at the same time records
every signal as It is given on a band of
graduated paper. This paper forms a
completo register of the signals, and Is
documentary evidonco incase of dispute
as to whether or not a vessel was signaling when a collision occurred.
The apparatus consists of a single
switch whleh is placed on the vessel's
bridge, so that the signaling oan be controlled by the officer on watoh, When
lt Is desired to blow the signal whistle
or to begin the automatic signaling,
whatever its nature may be, tiie lover
ls turned to the "under way" notch if
the vessel bo moving, and the eleotrio
current at once boglns working the
valvo of the steam whistle at regular
Intervals, conforming to what tho law
specifies. Should the vessel be at anchor the switch Is turnod to "at anchor," and the bell is rung In the same
way. The register consists of the band
of paper properly subdivided and movod
along by olook-work. A traveling
pointer, actuated by an electro-magnet,
pricks the paper at evory sound of the
. boll or whistle. Tho signaling can also
' bo mado at will entirely Independent
of the automatic mechanism by simply
pressing a button which closes the circuit leading to the bell or whistlo,—

' A Home tn the Pantry
A certain old man used to say to his
granddaughter when she was out of temper or naughty in any way: -'Mary,
Mary, take care, there's* mouse inthe
pantry!" She would often cease crying
at this, and stand wondering to herself
what he meant, and then run to the pantry to see if there really was a mouse in
the trap; but she never found one, -One
day she said: "Grandfather, I don't
know what you mean; I haven't a pantry,
and there aro no mice in mother's, because I have looked so often."   He

In several instances it has been difficult to state preolsely the occupations
of the signers. Take the caso of
Samuel Adams. He studied for the
ministry, was a merchant, and became
the ablest writer of his time on publio
questions. The word "farmor" is used
in several places where landed proprietor or planter would be moro fit.
One caso, a signer—Roger Shorman, of
Connecticut—was a shoemaker until he
was twenty-one yoars old, and then forsook the bench for the bar. It is dillicult to determine just what profession
to honor with the name of Richard
Henry Lee. Charles Carroll, of Carroll-
■ton, considered the wealthiest man in
the colonies, was a lawyer by profession.
In regard to the nativities of the signers
lt will be understood that, while many
were natives of Amerioa, their fathers
were of European birth. For example,
William Hooper, of North Carolina, was
born in Boston, and his father was a
Scotchman, and the father of Georgo
Read was an Irishman. So far as possible the biographies have, been care-
Icllj consulted, and the table givon Ib
believed to be substantially accurate.—

SUCCESS IN LITERATURE
nooks That Oame Into Vigorous Being Almost by Chance.
There have been cases in whioh literary renown has boen won unawares.   In
affirming this suon instances as thoso of
Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle
Tom's Cabin," Mr. Black's "Daughter of
Hoth," and Rider Haggard's "King Solomon's Minos," examples of astonishing
success achieved at a stroke, aro not in
mind, but Sir Walter Scott kept "Wa*
verly'i by him in manuscript nino years,
fearing that by its publication it might
put in peril tho reputation whioh was
already his in virtue of his poems.
It is most unlikely that Master Samuel Popys dreamed of the immortality
his "Diary" was to give him. MIbs Fer-
rior, the writer of the striking stories,
"The Inheritance" and "Destiny," has
herself stated that her flrst work was
"begun at tho urgent desire of a friend,
and with a promise of assistance, whioh,
however, failed long before the end of
the flrst volumo. The work was thrown
aside, and resumed some years later. It
afforded occupation and amusement for
Idle and solitary hours and was published in the belief that tho author's
name would novor be guessed at or tho
work heard of beyond a very limited
sphere." As a final and recent instance,
Prof- Henry Drummond and his widely-
circulated "Natural Law In the Spiritual
World" may be quoted. Tho professor
has told his readers that that fascinating book "was never formally written.
It oame into boing almost by chanco."—

HUMAN  EXISTENCE.
Sensible and Encouraging Comments on
the Problem of Living,
Are not tho lives of most ot us a matter difficult of solution? We drift along
aimlessly with the tide, or we rush along
ln the oiirrent, and if we strike a whirlpool the waters close over us and wo ar©
lost Bight of forever. Whioh U best, to
drift, or run tho risk ot the rapids? In
an easy, aimless lite, wo nro ot no special
use; we slip away ana Uiuuluuu we havo
filled Is bo small that it is entirely lost
to Bight, but we escape a great amount
of care and worry. The disheartening
defoats whioh arise from ambitious resolves are wholly unknown to us, and wo
are quietly content. On the other hand
tvo struggle. We are continually "kicking against the pricks." Sometimes wo
grow defiant, and if disappointments
harden our nature, then it were bettor
had we drifted with the tide, Is lt not
tho most difficult part of the problem to
be able to adjust our lives that thoy may
fit the groove made for them, to be help*
ful to others at the samo time we aro
working for our own oause? To havo
charity tor the sinful while wo condemn
vice, to so adjust our pleasures that they
get in and nibble away at the good, and
that makes you sometimes cross and
peevish and fretful. To keep them out
you muBt set a trap—the trap of watchfulness."—United Presbyterian,
—Two Frenchmen recently made a
stringe wager. One was positive that
his cook could prepare a dish the chiof
ingredients of whioh tho other, a renowned epicure, oould not name aftor
eating. When the dish, a vory savory
one, was placed before the epicure, ho
tnpted. smacked hll lips, sniffed, but
wns perolexed. He guessed "chicken,"
"frogs, *' "tripe," "calfs head," and
half a dozen other dishes. At last, whon
ho was Informed that he had not
guessed aright, and confessed himself
utterly bewildered, he was Informed
that the dish waa oomposed of old white
)dd gloves. --

The best opportunities and the best
results come from people ot the middle
olass, The very poor, from the faot of
their poverty, have no chanco to study
this problem. Life to them moans
imply to exist A daily struggle for
the maintenance of the body gives no
timo for other matters, and they drift
becauso thoy are obliged to.
To most people of wealth, life Is but a
pleasure trip. They Bail along pleasantly In sunny hours, and in storms
havo a safo harbor for refuge. Their
hours are spent In planning how they
shall got tho most enjoyment out of tho
space of timo allotted them on this
earth. Whilo their life is to bo preferred to poverty, yot it Is not an oasy
ono. Do we not better onjoy the good
that comes to us if wo have striven and
toiled for It?—Home.

Broken Promises.
Arthur Quinton, who has figured
rather conspicuously in polico matters
during tho past year, was up again this
morning on a charge of being drunk
and using foul and obscene language
on tho btreets. Ab usual ho waa very
penitent and mado all sorts of promises
to reform if ho was givon another
chanco. If released, he snid ho would
go straight to the Y. M. C. A. nud Bign
a pledge of total abstinence for life.
The court hnd trusted in Quinton's
promises beforo nnd could not bo induced to listen to his pleadings on this
occasion. Ho was ordered to pay a
line ot §10 or go to gaol for 00 days.
A While (lirJstiii-i--.
Snow commenced to fall yesterday
afternoon, bub in such n flirting undecided way at first that few had any
confidence in its lasting qualities. As
tho night wore on the ''beautiful" foil
with inoronsed vigor, and before morn*
ing tho shabby earth and everything
on it was covered with a handsome
snowy mantle, whioh completely covered up the defects left visible by Inst
fall's harvesting operations, the board
of works and the last rain storm. All
day to-day the Bnow continued to fall,
and although much of it melted aB soon
as it reached the earth, still thero is
sufficient stock on hnnd now to. guarantee a whito Christmas. It will sur-
priae no one to hoar the merry jingle of
the sleigh bells to-morrow.

What Bus Hatchery Is Doing,
Tho Fraser river hatchery did a
Inrgo business this fall in preparing
for the*hatching sosson, tho quantity
of ova laid in reaching tho enormous
figuro of 0,233,000. A shipment of
500,000 eyed ova was sent to Nanaimo
about a week ago, and will bo hatched
uut within a month. In tho Cowichan
river next woek there will bo set froo
500,000 more ; this is likely all the
eyed ovo that will bo sont n way from
tho hatchery this season. Had theso
two consignments been kept in stock
the Fraser river hatchery would have
boon seriously overcrowded. Tbo output in tho Fraser this season amounted
to 4,410,500 ova, Theso wero all deposited in the Fraser and tributnrio".
The shipments which woro despatched
to tho island are expected to produco
great results, but aro not to bc taken
us a precedent, as it wns merely tho
surplus of the hatchery that was sont
and nothing that would in tiny wny deplete tho regular stock.
Mr. Max Mowat is expected to roturn in about two months from his
northern expedition, and the most
sitisfaotoiy results are anticipated
from the work which ho has gone to
execute. There is a great demand for
butcheries all over the province, nnd
the people at tho Skeena nnd Nass
rivers seem to have gone crazy to bo-
come possessed of this kind of piscn-
torialnursoty. In view of thisand many
other request* for hatcheries tho department of fisheries has issued a new
application form for tho ubo of persons
wishing young fish and fry. The form
contains much valuable information
and useful directions for breeders.

This enterprising and old established

fouud busy putting the finishing
touohos to a magnificent assortment of
emeralds, rubies, sapphires, c.its'-eyos,
amethysts, blood-stones, gorgeously
set iu rings of gold, this morning by
tho roportor. Mr. Crake has got in
an immense stoek of clocks of evory
description from tho loud-voiced morning agitator, known as tho alarum, up
to the mellow-toned, splendid timepiece, that announces tho march of the
enemy in Parisian French chimes, Iu

and fine confectionery imported direct
frum tho east for this season's trade,
Tho perfumery is put up in fino cut
glnsa bottles tastefully ornnmontod with
ribbons and enclosed in lovely ornamental eases that look good enough to
hold jewels. In the lino of toilet articles, bucIi ns brushes, combs, teoth-
powdors nnd pastes, manicure nnd
chiropndical implements, shaving
mugs, razors, razor strops aud shaver's
appurtenances, Messrs. Muir & Co.

also a rich and varied display, almost
every known species of tho soap tribo
figuring iu their cases, from the princely Pears' down to tho common castile.
Messrs. Muir & Co.'s window show
is second to none in tho city,
mid great artistic skill has been
exhibited iu its arrangement; it is a
work of art worthy of tho finest professional window dresser.
MACPHEltaON & THOMSON.
A gust of sweet odors of many kinds
blended into onu saluted the nostrils
of tho repottor as ho entered this fino

bottled fruits nnd vegetables and confectionery. The display of crockery
nnd earthenware is first-class, and several of the dinner sets nro gems in their
way. If not tho largest stuck of this
kind in tho city it is one of tho best
chosen and enters to a rather moro
cultivntod taste than tho ordinary.
Of fresh fruits Mr. Armstrong has a
handsomo display, while in nil kinds of
