Hob water is the best thing that
can bo used to heal a sprain or
bruise. The wounded part should
be placed in water as hot as can be
borne for fifteen or twenty minutes,
and in all ordinary cases the pain
will graduully disappear. Hot water
applied by means of cloths is a sovereign remedy for neuralgia or
pleurisy pains. For burns or scalds
apply cloths well saturated with
cool alum water, kecpm-* tho injured
parts covered from tho air.

An exchange says : The interest
taken in the composition and future
operations of the new county councils in England continues to be very
great. People of note, as has been
mentioned before, are overy where
consenting to come forward as candidates. Tho London Presbytery
wns asked to express its opinion
whether it was "component, desirable, or in tho interest of
religion" that a minister of the
Presbyterian Ohurch of England
should represent a constituency in
tho county council or in Parliament.
After deliberation the Presbytery
declined to pronounce upon tho
matter in any way.

An exchange says : New York
buys thousands of Christmas trees
in Maino during the first half of
December, a large crew of men are
employed iu various part of Iho
state cutting the big town's supply,
A Christmas tree is valued first
according to its symmetry, second
ns to its size. The ideal tree is
anywhere from ten to fifteen feet
in height, with stout branches at
regular intervals. Some trees have
too few hrauches, whilo others have
so many as to hide the articles hung
upon them. Whole steamer loads
of Christmas trees, cut in the western part of tlie state, are shipped
from Portland to New York, and
one man in Camden, ou Penobscot
Iky, is getting out 30,000 trees for
the metropolitan market.
Bays an exchange: The governess in the novels is badly paid
and meek, treated with little consideration und leading a miserable
existence altogether. That is the
theory. In practice it works out
rather differently. A caso has just
been decided at Grimsby, England,
where Miss Thomas, a governess,
claimed damages for assaults alleged
to have been committed upon her
by tho children she was engaged to
teach. They refused to obey her,
and, although complaints were mado
to their mother, no notice was taken
of them. Tho littlo pots, who must
have been most promising infants,
burned sulphur in their governess*
room and dashed water upon her
while she lay in bed. In the novels
tho young preceptress would havo
meekly borne this and posed as a
martyr. Tlio lady was not constructed aftor that pattern. She
took legnl action, and the jury, after
five minutes' deliberation, awarded
tho full amount claimed and  costs.
America says : The Christmas
number of the London Truth con
tains a cartoon of international interest. Tt represents an auction
sale, at which the eligible lordlings
of Britain are being knocked down
to tho highest American bidder.
The Prince of Wales is auctioneer,
aud the American fathers are vying
with eaeh other in paying out hard-
earned American dollars for popinjay dukes and barons. It is questionable which is the more disgraceful, to sell titles or to buy them,
hut this is of secondary importance,
Thn fact I hat Americans sell themselves in order that the may become
members of a so-called nobility,
should mako all honest Americans
turn from them with loathing.
Marringofor mouny or position is
but logalizod prostitution, and the
woman wiio bocomos a pnrty to
sueh u bargain has sunk fnr lower
inthosoolal scale than the poor
crmture who becomes an outcast
merely because she has trusted in
jiiic villain's sense of honor.

500 WOMEN aO ON STRIKE.
New Yoiik, Jan. 8.—Five hundred
cmployeea, mostly women, bf-E. S.
Higgins & Co.'s carpet factory, struck
tins morning because tho firm did not
restore the old rates of wages and,
promise there should bo no more reductions. Members of the firm auy tho
reduction wns necessary aud that .thoy
lost money last year and desired to
mako n profit thia year. About 500
employeca refused to join the strikers
and still remain at work. Tho cm
ployera say they can operate their
works independent of the strikers.
THE "Q" STRIKE.
Chicago, Jan. 8.—A. It. Caveruer,
chairman of tho committee of nine that
settled the "Q" strike, said to a reporter
this morning, "I think tho rumor that
Arthur will resign office in tho brotherhood has no foundation* Arthur has
been dissatisfied for a long timo and tho
outcome of tho "Q" Btrike is an addition*
al thorn in his flesh. I sec in a morning
paper that Arthur is not satisfied with
the settlement of the "Q" strike because
he was opposed to it from the stmt. That
statement is false. Arthur worked for
Bix months prior to tho strike on the
road to bring that result about. After
he had given hia consent to the strike and
four-weeks had passed ho began to get
nervous and wanted to declare the strike
off. This the members of the orgnniza*
tion would not agree to, and because of
hia attitude the committee was appointed
at the Richmond convention."

Special to Tho Columbian.!
Seattle, Jan. 7.—Alfred Scliaficr, a
Bohemian, fired a heavy charge of giant
powder, with malioious intent, under, tbo
house  of v-Jeorge Bodala,   at Oilman*
thirty miles east of Seattle at 4.30 thia
iuornin«,   instantly   killing  John  and
Michael Sherrlok and Anna, tho D-year-
old child of Bodala, and badly wounding
Bodala,   hia  wife  and  little  eo.i  aud
daughter,    Laat spring Bodala caused
the arrest of Scliaffer on the charge of
criminal assault upon his wife.   JjphafTeu
waa sentenced to a short term of imprisonment in tho county jail and when
rolcascd   made  such   scnous   threats
against the life of Bodala that ho was
again arrested and incarcerated in jail
for  ninety  daya,   When released,  he
returned to Gilman, and since then has
lost no opportunity of  attempting to
injure Bodala, who naturally began, to
fear greatly for his personal safety,' -and
made arrangements. to  remove  to San
Francisco.   Christinas night an attempt
was made to blow upBodala's house with
ordinary powder, but it failed.   Bodala
got the two Merrick brothers to stop at
his houae and was to leave this morning
for Sau FranciBco.   At 4.30, nowevijr;
Schatfcr fired the giant powder under the
house while the inmates slept, entirely
demolishing tho building and scattering
tho timbers to a distance of GOO feet.
Tho Sherrick brothers and the little girl
were instantly killed.   Sleepers in adjoining houses wero thrown out of bed,
and glass was broken, resulting in widespread  consternation   in , the vicinity.
Bodala waa brought to the hospital in
Seattle and ia in a dangerous condition.'
Mrs. Bodala will not recover,   Few, if
any, of the inmates escaping inatont
death are expected to recover.   Scliaffer
was found by the people of Gilman in his
own house.   After the explosion, every
indication pointing to him as the perpetrator of the deed, he was placed under,
arreat and shut in tho Knights of Labor
hall  until tho  arrival  of the sheriff.
Whilo tho latter was eating'dinner, one
hundred men broke open the door of the
house where Scliaffer was confined aad
took him to a tree opposite the railroad
depot ahd placed au inch noose around
hia nock.   Thoy'hoisted bim up once to
induce a confession.   He refused and was
again raised and lowered.   Still keeping
silent he was raised a third and kst timo
and waa not cut down until the u.Ti, ;■
arrived   about 15  minutes ' ufterv-;--:.1-.

only another indication of the bitter-1

Germany. It would have been wiser

subject, but nothing can justify tho
insolence.of Count Herbert Bismarck'**
reply. 'It is only ono'of the many

considered thero.: The emperor's angel*

feelings of the Emperor Frederick.
The strong English proclivities of the
empress nnd the Mackenzio incident
added fuel to the flame and we may
look out for a good deal more .of German insolence before we seo the end of
the'friction. The visit of the'Prince
of Wales to Berlin did not improve'
matters. He saw many things df which
he did not approve and ventured to
criticize and give advice. He wu not
too civilly told to look nearer home before he gave advice.

The ceremony of presenting wedding

The Clgary ffmi/i/, commenting
on the malt of the municipal election recently held at that place,
sayi I "The people of Calgary have
good reuon to congratulate them-
telve. upon the teniible, practical
mult of Monday', nomination*.
When tht elector, of the town can
unite and return a full council by
acclamation it mutt be recognized
by the outside world tbat Oalgarians
oan link party.differences when the
welfare of the community io at
•take. Thii proof of union in the
public intereit ii alio welcome at
Indicating that we have reached
that stage in our career when our
citizens can bring themselves to forget past differences and rue luperior to thote bitter factional prejudices, which havo prevailed in the
put, greatly to the disadvantage of
the town." We are not acquainted
with the particular oircumitancea
under which our neighbor city of
the prairies returned a council by
acclamation, and mutt take our
cotemporary's word for it that the
action wai justifiable and highly
commendable; but Calgary ii to be
congratulated, if not envied, if it
hai really "reached that stage in its
career when ita citizen! can bring
themselves to forget put difference!
and rise superior to thote bitter
factional prejudices which have prevailed in the put," greatly to the
diiadvantage of any town, Calgary
may now be laid to have fairly
•merged from the village stage, for
it is to that stage that petty difference! and bitter factional prejudice! in public matters belong, and
until these an laid aside, or have
beon outgrown, very little satisfactory progress can be looked for.
Some towns of greater age and
larger pretension! than Calgary
havo not yet got rid of their swaddling clothes in this respect, but the
indications are all favorable for
ivch a happy consummation. 'Til
devoutly to be wished that it may
not be long delayed.
Oity electon will take notice of
the two advertisements in another
column announcing the civic and
firedepartment elections respectively
to take place at the Oouncil Chambers, Hyack Hall, on Monday next,
the 14th inst. Instructions are
given respecting the forms of nomination, of which thote interested will
do well to make a note and govern
themselves accordingly, M that no
hitch or irregularity may occur. It
will be Men that there ii no election
by wards this year, but a mayor and
nine aldermen are to be elected to
represent the entire city, so that,
in the event of a poll which will be
held, if necessary, on Monday, the
21st int., every elector will have
ten votet—one for mayor and one
etch for the nine aldermen. It ii
to be hoped that thil exceptional
franchise may be exercised wisely
and for the general welfare, without
personal favor or prejudice. Whoever aik. the suffrage! of the elector! ihould justify hii requeat by
defining hii poiition on all mitten
of importance relating to the city's
preient and future interest!. No
one hostile to our railway and other
enterprise* and to a policy of genenl progression should be allowed
to creep into nn alderman's chair
unchallenged. Important interests
an it stake. The year upon which
we have entered will be one in
which much can be done, for either
good or ill, according to the manner
of men we elect to our municipal council, and It become!
•Jl the mon important .oii
the electon should know for whom
to vote, and why they vote for
whom. To this end, every candidate ihould itand on hii own bottom, tnd, in Mme public way, declare hii intention!. No one would
think of soliciting the suffrages of a
constituency for a Seat in either the
provincial or Dominion houie without giving his reaioni for so doing
and defining his policy. When a
man Is the recipient of a numerously signed requisition uking him to
accept a certain position, he may be
excused, perhaps, from particularly
declaring his   platform,    on   the
S»nd that hu fellow-townsmen
ve shown their confidence in him
try Uking him to represent them.
It may lis trgued, tab, that, in our
civic election, the electon an mil-
ficiently acquainted with- the general polio- tnd lwnings of any one
who lu or may appear u a candidate for .Merman, not to require an
explicit declaration of principles
from each Mpmnt for civic honor..
Something my be allowed for the
truth of this jiwposltion; bat yet It
iimueh safer, and wholly unob-
jtuttonablt at the aatte time, that
ctt-Mttei*•*»*•/ Wistta of' truw

Immediately eut of the mountain!, u well ai in thii province,
the railway era hu set in. Tho
Calgary Bulletin says there is every
prospect thtt next season will lie
one of marked progress in the railway development of the Northwest,
It appears to be finally settled that
the long proposed line between
Lethbridge end Benton will be
completed early in the season. Already the nils have been purchased,
the ties are being taken out, and the
contractor for the grading hu made
a penonal inspection of the ground.
This line will connect the N, W. 0.
4 N. Co.'s line, which connects with
the 0. P. R. at Dunmore, with a
branch of the Northern Pacific at
Montana, and will make Lethbridge
the coal depot for Montana. The
immediate effect on the town of
Lethbridge will certainly be great,
and throughout all southern Alberta
as well. Settlen within and capitalist! without the Northwest will
feel and tee thtt they are no longer
at the mercy of a single railway
company, and that confidence that
hu been so sadly lacking in the
paitfew yean and which is so
necessary to the development of the
country, will be restored and largely
increased. Another hopeful sign is
that the C. P.R. has take-* hold of
the Regina at Long Lake railway
and is now surveying a line to Saskatoon and Battleford, with the
apparrent intention of commencing
construction in the spring. With
disallowance disallowed in Manitoba
and monopoly broken in Alberta,
the 0. P, R. doubtless sees the necessity of occupying the fertile Saskatchewan iu advance of all competitors, If this is the view of the
case taken by the company there
can be no doubt thtt they will push
Construction at once, u there can be
hone of their ability to do so. No
part of the Saskatchewan would
benefit more by the construction of
this line, or even merely the certain
prospectof its construction, than
Edmonton. A road to Battleford
from Regina, passing through a
fertile but sparsely wooded country,
would make a market for Edmonton
coal and lumber, tbe two most valuable natural resources of the region
west and north of us, which are as
yet almost undeveloped for lack of
an outlet. Other important railway
charters are being asked for, notably
one for a line from Calgary to the
boundary, with a prospective extension to Edmonton, and another
from Swift Current to Peace River
by way of Edmonton, which at tlio
least will direct favorable attention
towards this part of the country.
The prospects of general railway
construction in the Northwest which
have been held out from yoar to
year have so often proved illusive
that people are slow to believo that
business is meant for next summer,
but there can be scarcely any doubt
that in the cues of the Gait Company and the 0. P. R, it is meant
In view of this almost certainty of
early railway construction it is
worthy of mention that the Saskatchewan country u a whole and
northern Alberta in particular
stands on an entirely different level
in the estimation of the eastern public from what they did a few years
ago. When the northern route of
the 0. P, R. was abandoned for the
present one it wu taken as proof
that the change wu made because
the southern wu better than the
northern country. That impression
has been proven to be a mistake and
now the tendency is to look to the
Sukatchewan country as the
true fertile belt, and every railway
now in prospect bu some part of
the great river u its objective
point

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Elector* of New Westminster City ;
Lames and Gentlemen,—
Atthe request of a number of friends I
have consented to placo my name ln
nomination for the position of alderman
at the coming election, fully realizing the
importance and duties of tho office. If
elected I will endeavor to the boat of my
ability, to place our cily In the front runic
of the cities of B. C. Tho following important questions will have my careful
attention:
1. RAILWAY.-Iwilluseevory legitimate
means In my power to bring to a successful termination the building and com-
{detionof the Southern Railroad, and will
reat liberally any projected railway
which may wish to run Into our city,
alwaya carefully guarding tho best interests of the eity. And It is my opinion
If we are true to ourselves and bury nny
little differences that may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, we can make New
Weatmlnater the greatest railway center
and moat Important city between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Water Supply.—I am In favor of tbe
city owning Its own watef works, for there
is a very large revenue to be derived from
this source, ft properly conducted, and, if
elected, I will at once take up this finest Ion
and deal with It on business principle.*-,
Water rate debentures when issued, hear
their own value and will not bo ono dollar's tax on the ratepayers,
8. Sewerage.—This la one of tho most
Important questions that the new council
will have to grapple with, nnd, as there Is
bound to be a large emigration here this
year, It behooves us to be alive nnd get
our city well advanced so as to keep uway
those dread diseases which we so mercifully escaped lost year. And I have no
doubt if you elect the right men a scheme
can be got up whereby tho city can be
fut'perly sewered,and tlie revenue derived
rom the sale of water bo mado to pay the
Interest nnd sinking fund for both water
works and sewerage.
4. Streets -Something must bo dono
at once to open up all streets ln the city
so as to give workingmen and mechanics
a chance to get to their loin and buildings,
aud, if elected, I will give this subject uncareful attention and hearty support.
5. City Kali,.—If any proposition Is
brought forward for the erection of a suitable city ball, and If tho finances of tho
city will allow It, I will give it my warmest support.
0. Street Liriitino.-I will favor the
extending and Improving of our system of
street lighting, for there Is no doubt It will
stand considerable Improvement.
7. Park.—In order to make the coming
agricultural show a success wo must nut a
portion of tho city park In a fit condition
with suitable buildings, etc. If elected I
will do my best to make the grounds a
credit to the royal city, I am also In favor
of removing tho unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent and planting a few shade
trees to replace the stumps. Nature has
done much for our city and it only wants
touching up a tittle to make It perfect.
9. Public I.imtAnY.-Thcro Is no doubt
a new building Is wanted to replace the
delapldated one now occupying a valuable lot, and there Is no doubt In my mind,
but that a suitable one could be erected
with stores underneath nud library nbove;
and the rents from aaid stores would more
than pay for Interest and sinking fund,
and leave a balance for keeping tbe library In proper condition.
9. MANUEAcrnREHH,-I will encourage
any manufacturers that contemplate star*
ting business In this city, treating them
In a liberal manner, and will uso every
effort to show them the advantage of doing
business here, It Is well known that manufactures are tbe backbone of any city,
10. Communications.—I will urge upon
our representative tho necessity of the
Dominion government subsidizing aidally
boat between here and Richmond nnd
alao between here and Ladners Landing.
We must alao get better connections with
tho surrounding district.
11. Letter 11oxk<*.-I will alsoendcnvor
to have the postal authorities supply and

NEW WEWMINSTBR. SCHOOLS IN TURKEY. '
How 7ounff Moslems Aro Taught
to Acquire Knowledge.
I'hey SU AU Day on a Mat and Yell at tlio
lops of Their Voices-Committing
Whole Books to   Memory—
Peculiar Customs.
If tho stranger in a Moslem country in
pussing through tho streets is attracted by
u ndlso for which ho can not satisfactorily
account toward tho building in which tho
school is hold, ho will, on looking in, probably see a long and narrow room, at ono
end of which is seated a man with a long
board (schoolmasters retain;their bcardB
even when whiskers only are sanctioned hy
general usage), whilo tho sides arc lined'
with littlo boys at various ages squatted
upon their heels on the floor, which is generally covered with a thick mat, in addition
to wiiich thoso parents who can afford it
provido their sons with a bit of carpet or
felt in Persia, or with a cushion in Turkey,
to place between thorn and tho mat Some
of the older boys go so far aa to obtain &
cushion to introduce between thoir backs
mid tho wall, but this luxury is rather discountenanced by tho masters as an en-
eroachmout on their own peculiar dignities.
All tho boys havo tholr hoods covered, but
they are without thoir shoos, which aro left
near tho door, so mingled and so similar In
shape and color that it would seem difficult
for each to find his own; buton tho breaking up overy one seomB to slip his foet into
his own shoes without any of that individual
hesitation or genoral confusion which might
uo expected.
Whon tbe boys are learning their lessons,
ar repeating thorn to their master, tbey do
so all at onco with a loud voico, and with a
continual sco-suw of tho body, without
which movement thoy seem to conceive it
impossible, that anything can be learned.
The scene which this affords is extremely ludicrous to a European, particularly as tho zeal of the learner ia estimated
by tho loudness of bis voice and the violence
of his seesaw; aud hence, when conscious
ot the approach of a person whom tho master or pupils wish to impress with a favorable opinion of thoir application and progress tho noise iu tho school-room, which
may previously havo sunk into a low hum,
rises abruptly to tho clamorous uproar of
many voices. It seoms that in reading all
at once to tho master the elder boys, iu tho
school at largo, are expected to glvo somo
attention to tho others near thorn. The
muster can not, in such a noise, distinguish
the individual accuracy of each reader, and
Ills attention is therefore directed to observe tbat time is as nearly as may bo kept
by tho voices, and, in some measure, in the
motions also of tho pupils. This object
seems but poorly attained. This style of
reading is most unnatural. It is a drawling
chant, uttered in a very loud voico.
In tho Kast generally tho tone of tho
voice Is very high, even in common conversation, but in reading it Is raised to screaming. Some Arabs desired a friend of mino
to let them hear him read, writes a correspondent of tho London Standard. He
complied, on which thoy exclaimed: "You
are uot reading, you arc talking!" The faet,
however, Jb that except among thoso of j
tho learned professions, fow of those i
who have professedly learned to rood
in the schools can or do exorcise tho ac*|
qnii'cmeut iu after life; and tho few who do
icimiiu actually qualified to read with facility rarely do so without somo stimulus incomparably stronger than would bo ro-
ili-ii-cd in this or, perhaps, any European
country. After a residence of several years
among Mohammedan people, 1 do not recollect more than throe instances In which I
havo seen persons quietly engaged lu road-,
tug a book to themselves, all tbo actions of j
their ordinary lifo are much more exposed I
to public notice than can well be imagined
in this country.
Theso facts are easily explained. Books
ure expensive articles of luxury in Mohum-
medau countries, and this is alone sufiloieut
to account for much that wo have stated.
'More the introduction of tho art of printing the state of kuowlodgo among tho people was uot moro favorable in this country
than it Ib in Persia now. Thero is also
another less obvious circumstance, which
would have groat influence oven woro tho
manuscript books much more common and
cheap than they arc. This iB tho difficulty
of reading manuscript. This difficulty
should not bo underrated. Even in this
country most educated persons would require considerable stimulus to induce them
to go through a manuscript volumo, Thoso
only whose duty It is to examine manuscripts and to prepare thorn for tho press
enu descrlbo the tediousness of tho opera-
. tion. It Ib not one of tho least advantages
of printing that it has tended to simplify
the character employed iu tho preparation
if hooks and to render it uniform. This
comparison very imperfectly Illustrates our
meaning, for our manuscripts are fur moro
legible to us than those of tho East aro to
an Oriental.
Among ourselves many persons who can
write shorthand with facility aro unablo to
read It with ease; an Oriontal manuscript is
a sort of shorthand which many more persons are able to write than read. The
words are abbreviated, aa in shorthand, by
the omission of vowels, and when tho words
are deciphered tho want of punctuation
renders it often difficult to discover at onco
tho meaning of tho phrases. Whon to thia
it is added that thore are soveral different
stylos of writing, besides the difference occasioned In tbe several manuscripts by the
variety of individual hands and flourishes,
It will he perceived that a person can not
read with facility without more practice
than the state of litcraturo and knowledge
encourages any considerable number of
students to seek or enables them to obtain.
A stranger Is very liable to bo deceived in
estimating tho competency of a Mohammedan to read. A very large part of common
education consists lu learning by heart a
considerable portion of current litcraturo,
particularly of tho Koran. Ho Is, therefore,
ablo to repeat by rote tho most striking passages of almost any of tho vory limited
number of books which are likely to ho
placed before him. Ho will turn ovor its
leaves until ho can find some passage with
which ho is acquainted, and will repeat it
correctly us if from tho book; but, if suddenly Interrupted, ho is afterward quito
unable to indicate tho part of tho page at
which tho interruption took place,
GRACEFUL WALKING.
An Art UndBMtoiMl by Fow nml Practiced
by a Still -Smaller Number.
Did you over bave on opportunity to observe carefully tho walk .or gait of a large
number of people! asks a writer In the St.
Louis BipubHc. There aro gaits and gaits,
yet how few really know how to'walk.
This lack of grace is especially noticeable tn
tha feminine portion of the crowd. To be
sure tho ladies havo a great deal to contend
with during tho present mode of dross.
What with tight lacing, big bustles, ox-
tenders and pointed-toed, high-heeled Oxford ties, it is a hard matter for them to
manage to sustain their equilibrium oven.
Now, men lmve nothing of all this to cope
with. Theynocd not wear tho abovo-mon-
tlonod articles and still'be* In stylo. That
littlo flvo-lettored word I How many have
died martyrs to iti
Naturally tho first thing to bo considered
is tho dross. To begin with tho shoes;
They must neither bo too long nor too abort,
too wldo nor too narrow, too light nor too
heavy. They must bo juBt right. Yjur
feot will bo blistered aliko if your shoes are
too heavy or too light Havo n medium-
weight, flexible, broad-heeled shoo, It depends entirely on the shape of tho foot
whether tho heol should bo high or low. A
mCdlum high broad heel Is the best I think.
Now for the walk. Throw your shoulders
well baok; hold your head up, with your
chin drawn In; throwyour whole body from
tho hips up slightly forward. Now stop out,
moving >bo logs from tho hips with tho
slightest posslblo bond in tho knee, to prevent a stiff-legged appearance Take steps
of moderate length, with the toes turned
out. Whon walkiug, the best position for
tho arm Is to let It hang easily at the Hide.
Do not swing them, but flo not hold them
BKfesttrjUK' -
THE STEAM   HAMMER.
■Somntiilug About u Powerful Mm-hlm;
and its Inventor.
The roll of modern iuveptors contains no
moro attractive name than that of tho
sturdy Scot who invented the murvclou--
steum hammer. Tho lifo of James Na&myth,
Bays Harpers Young People, was a romance.
Hia achievements were uoble, his success
was brilliant and his character was so
cheerful, sunny, upright uud happy that it
is a delight to dwell upon It.
He himself has told us, In words of simple,
hearty enthusiasm, the story of bis boyhood
and one of the triumphs of his manhood. It
is curious that his very name had a history
in striking contrast with-tho' actual facts ol
his lifo. Ono of his ancestors, It Is Bold, in
trying to CBcapo from the onomy on abattlc*
field, assumed the disguise of a blacksmith*.
Ho was caught, after a sharp race, when
his captor, perceiving his disguise, exclaimed: ""Why, you aro nae smyth" (no
smith); whence enmo tho family name of
Nasmyth. Now no greater smith over lived
than this James of tho contrary name, who
made the steam hammer. The old warlike
family motto, too, "Nou arte, sed marte"
(Not by art, but by war), was so entirely
contradictory to James Nasmyth's pursuits
that ho turned it entirely around, and made
it "Non marte, sod arte" (Not by war, but
by art). It was, indeed, by his masterful
art that ho achieved triumphs moro endur-
lug for tho good of mankind than any war
hus ever been. Lot us boo what au unusual UiuU of a boy James NaBmyth was.
Ho soon conceived a groat interest In
chemistry. The father of ono of his school
mutes had a chciineul laboratory at Loith, r
mile or so distant from Edinburgh, and tc
llils laboratory young Nasmyth was freolj
admitted. When some Interesting experiment was about to ho made, Tom Smith.
Nasmyth's young friend, would hoist i
white Hug. on a pole in tho garden at Lcilh,
whereat Nasmyth eagerly ran down and
took part in the cxpor'niont The hoys not
only had ii hand in the exycriments, but
taught thcmsolvea lioiv to make each substance used hi them, instead of buying the
.iuhstances in tho shops. Thus Nasmyth
won becajnc a voity skillful practical Chemist.'
At tho ago of seventeen yo'ing Nismylk
began to turn his mechanical talents to
practical account. He mado u littlo steam
engine for grinding his fathor'scolors^he
constructed somo workshop engines and
tho model of a condensing engine to be
used at mechanics* institutes, and aftor attending for four or llvo years the Edinburgh School of Arts, made tho model of a
steam carriage for railway purposes. Vol'
it was just at that time, when Nasmyth wns
niuctocu, that the possibility of applying
steam to lnnd travel was on tho point of being proved. It took Nasmyth four months
of absorbing labor to comploto his steam
carriage, and when (lone It was run successfully on tho Qucensbury road, near Edinburgh, carrying eight passengors, who
sat upon low Beats only three feet from tho
ground. This seems to ub now a very rudo
and uncouth way of traveling, but when
Nasmyth's steam engine proved to be a
success It was looked upon as a.ffontlcr of
wondors,
Ono of tho most Important events of
young Nasmyth's lifo was whon ho was admitted to the famous works of Henry
JIaudsloy, in London. Mr. Maudslcy was
an eccentric but kind-hearted man, and Very
shrewd in mechanical work, and his reputation was world-wide. Ho bad long refused
to admit any moro pupils in his works; but
ho was bo Btruck with tlio genius Bbown in
tho models which Nasmyth displayed to bim
that ho not only accepted tho young Scot as
a pupil, but took hiin into hi-- own private
workshop. "Hero I wish you to work,''
said Maudslcy, ■•beside me, as my assistant" Nasmyth remained with this generous patron two years, wlieu Maudslcy
died.
Nasmyth was now fully equipped for his
lifo work. Ho took charge of a large
foundry near Manchester, where ho soon
acquired moro than u competence.
Ho was one of those who hud the rare
privilege of witnessing tho opening of the
first railway, that between Manchester and
Liverpool, and to -see I Stephenson's
"Hockot" draw tho lirst train out of Manchester. The establishment of railways
gavo abundance of work to Nasmyth, who
now mado locomotives for tlio new companies which rapidly sprang up.
Hut tho groat nehiovement of Nasmyth's
life was the invention of that powerful
steam hummer which still continues to be a
marvel to all who cee its operation, nt onco
mighty mid dollcufo. It la said of this machine Hint il can chip un egg resting on au
anvil without breaking it, while It can also
deliver a twelve-ton blow which will make
n whole township tremble We cau not do
bet or than lo r-uoto Nusmyth'B own description of this crowning mechanical triumph of hia life:
"it, cons-sled of, lirst, a massive anvil ou
which lo rest tho work; second, a block of
iron constituting tho hammer or blow-glv-
lug portion, and third, an inverted steam
cylinder, to whoso piston-rod tho hammer-
block wus attached. All that was then required to produco a most ciToctivo hummer
was cltnply lo admit sveun of sufficient
pressure into Ihe cylinder so as to act ou
the umlur sido of tho piston, and thus to
raise the Immmor block attached to tbo cud
of the piston-rod. By a vory simple arrangement of a slido valve, under tho control of nn ut tend ml, the steam was allowed
to escape, and thus permit the massive
block of iron rapidly to descend by its own
gravity upon the work on tho anvil. Thus,
by a more or leas rapid m inner In which
the attendant allows tlie steam to enter or
escape from tho cylinder, nny required
number or any Intensity of blows could bo
delivered."
One of the first uses to which tho steam -
hammer was put was thut of tho driving
of piles. Thoro*woro many mechanics
who did not believo that it would drive
piles faster or hotter than was done by
tho old method. So Nasmyth resolved to
havo a match bctwoon his steam-hammer
and tho ordinary pile-driver. Two lm*,
incuse logs wero selected, and the two machines begun work at tho samo moment.
Tho result wns tbat whilo It took tho old*
fu&hluiiud machine twelve hour*, to drive its
log to tho proper depth, the steam-hum-
mer hud finished Its task in four and a half
minutes,
Tho Invention of tho stcam-hammor not
only mndo Nnsmyth famous wherever in
tho world tho mechaulcs arts aro practiced,
but added quickly nudlatgoly to his worldly wealth. He was only thirty-one years of
ago, und had already achieved a groat lifo
work.
Illiteracy of Criminals.
The illiteracy of criminals Is illustrated
by Dr. Scoullor, of tho Illinois Reform
School, thus: "Whilo tho State of Illinois
has les3 than fl per cent, unable to read and
write, the -commitments to the Reform
School show nearly 25 per cent, unable to
road aud TO per cont. unable to write.

The council at their last meeting,
held on Saturday, deoided to surrender their charter, in consequence of
there not being sufficient candidates
eligible to serve as councillors during
the coming year and givo fair representation to all the wards. Thia will delay the elections for some time, but
was caused through the stringency of
the qualifications for a reeve and councillors, ns amended at tho last session
of the house. Two bylaws and. two

This enterprising llvm commenced
business a few ycni-a ngo in a most un
pietensioua style, opening first as general blacksmiths and carriago repairers
in a small way. Thoy lacked capital
to develop the business rapidly, but
wero rich in energy nud determination!,
und, being also blessed with a well-
developed bump of ciiutiou8iieas, have
finally succeeded in making their establishment what it now is~n credit
both to themselves and the oity, Tho
building occupied by this firm is 00x120
feet and two Btories high. The front
part of tho ground floor is occupied by
the blacksmith and machine Bliops, in
which eight practical men aro constantly employed. The machines nt present in uso aro: 2 boring machines, 1
lathe nnd 2 fans, for which motive
power is furnished by a 12 horse-power
engine A planer, steam hammer and
other valuable machinery arc now under order and when these aro received
aud placed in position Messrs. Reid &
Currie intend to push business in other
portions of the province. During the
past year $3,000 was spent in new machinery. All aorta of machine work is
built and repaired in the shops and tho
rapid manner in which this branch of
tho buaineas is developing speaks volumes for the confidence the publio
have in thoir workmanship. Adjoining the machine shop is the foundry,
which wns added to tho establishment
during lust summer. In this building
throe firat-cluss moulders are employed
nnd their labors rosult in about 3,000
lbs. of mouldings being turned out
every day. Since the lirst blast the
foundry has beon ovorrun with orders
nnd nn idle day lins, so far, been unknown, Tho carriage* making department occupies the rear half of tho
building proper nnd tho whole of the
second story. All sorts of vehicles are
here nianufacltired* and repairs and
painting also cornea within the dutiea
of tlio workmen. During the past
year some 50 vehicles were built and
over 200 underwent repairs. The business of the firm doubled during tho
year and Messrs. Reid & Currie are
sanguine that 1880 will add 100 per
cent, to the grand total of 1888, which
was within a fraction of $50,000,
THOMAS OVENS,
Alderman Thos. Ovens established a
a general blacksmith and repair shop
in 1875 and has, consequently, beon
beforo the public for 15 years. Increased business induced Mr. Ovens
to build during last summer n fine
threo story building on Douglas street,
which ho now occupies. Being a practical machinist nud u thorough master
of his trade Mr. Ovens has always been
favored with plenty of business, especially in finer branches of machine work.
He is now making nvrangements to
furnish his new bunding with a full
lino of working tools for machine making and repairing and expects to have
thia new branch in full working order
some time during the coming summer.
Business during 1888, he reports, waa
greatly in excess of any previous year,
and, with the increased facilities which
the contemplated changes will give, ho
confidently hopes to make 1880 the
banner year since hia establishment.
NEW WESTMINISTER FOUNDRY.
The Now Westminstor Foundry and
Maclnno shops, Mr. Robert Law,
manager, is the oldest and largest establishment of its kind in the city, aud
does an extensive business in the city
and district generally. The businesa has
been greatly increased during the past
year and tho value of tho work done
at the new WeBtminster Foundry will
compare favorably with other concerns
of tho kind. An addition to the
foundry 50x25 feet and 2 Btories
high, has lately been built and is now
being furnished with machinery. Tho
first floor will bo used ns a machine
shop nnd tho second as a pattern and
wood-work room. Othor improvements
nro also in prospect which will add to
the general efficiency of tho establishment.

Tho semi-annual examination of the
children of the Hopo school took placo
ou Thursday, Dec. 20th, 1888, and
showed that thoro had been a very
marked improvement in the progress
made in tho various subjects of tuition
during tho past six months. Tho examination was held by tho teachor,Mr.
Frank Morrison, who proved by his
skillful handling aud tho prompt answers of the pupils that ho is well
qualified for the position ho holds, and
gave general satisfaction to all concerned in the art of education. On
Saturday, Dec, 22, u vnrioty entertain*
tainiuent was given, tho first part comprising songs nnd recitations given by
the school children, who one and all
did their parts with great credit to
themselves, as woll as to their instructor. Special mention ahould be
made of Miss Grace Fraser and Miss
Ethel and Hopo Wardle in the singing
department, and Master Samuel Ryder
and Masters James and Alexander McDonald for their respective recitations,
which wero admirably rendered. The
second part consisted ot a magic lantern entertain ment, which waa very
amusing to tho little ones. Tho 3rd
part nnd tho most important one (especially to the children) was the Christmas tree, which was well covered with
valuable prosents, thero being over
$50 worth of very useful articles, subscribed to by the residents of tho town.
The treo was dressed and the presents
arranged, under the able management
of the ladies' committee, who all
earned great praise for their untiring
efforts. Especially, are thanks due to
Mrs. W. L. Flood and Mrs. D. A.
McDonald. Santa Glaus arrived by
the 16:45 train and descended in tho
rear part of tho building at au angle of
45 degrees, and at onco proceeded to
distribute the gifts to tho lucky prize
winners, who ono and all wero well
pleased with what she or he received.
Groat praise is due to the untiring exertions of Mr. W. L, Flood, the hon.
sec. aud treasury, and all tho ladies
nud gentlemen of tho committee. Tho
programme ended about 10:30 p.m.,
when all retired to their respective
homes, seemingly well pleased with
their evening's enjoyment.
Tho weather here has been delightful
for the last month, wo havo had no snow,
