Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.
From Far Chi Uio tin.
Editor Columbian.—Dear sir: —In
your issue of Dec. 4th I noticed an article in regard to the Chilcotin country.
Now, in justice to all new comers, especially those who come to our great
province to make for themselves homes,
I think it only right to say that the
statement of Mr. McAllister is rather
exaggerated.
In the flrst place Mr. McAllister has
been a settler in Chilcotin barely Bix
mouths, and I for one do not know, or
think, that Mr. McAllister hns seen
more than two or three ranches in the
country: his time was occupied in the
hay field, I may say, exclusively. Our
buy meadows (great as thoy are) are
only good for hay, and not for grazing,
and of the lowlands certain portions
only are fit for cereals; and water is not
ao plentiful as he represents, as nearly
every ranch ran short of water last summer (the summer Mr. McAllister was
here.)
In regard to Mr. Joseph Mayer's fine
herd of beef cattle, we know that there
is a trader and tenant here by ttiat
name, but do not know of hiB having
even a branding iron, much less n fine
herd of beef cattle. Knowing every
rancher in Chilcotin, I fail to know Mr.
McAllister as having a ranch in the
Chilcotin, and don't know of a uew settler ou the Chilcotin River thiB year,
and I have lived here all summer before
Mr. McAllister's arrival. .
This is a fine country, but, we think!
in this country a settler cannot get a
start without money. We welcome anybody here with means to start ranching:
but, without means, our advice is, do
not come, as everything is very high,
and very little work for a man to get,
In regard to timber, there is lots of it
and no scarcity, such as iB needed iu the
country. Sawmills are only running
part of the time.
We send this, not for contradiction
sake, but to givo new settlers a true
idea of tho country.
Yours truly,
A Settlku.
The London Spectator (February 1) approves of the extradition treaty botween
Grent Britain and the United States. It
says that according to its reading of the
treaty anyone who has actually tnken
lifo or attempted to take it by maliciously exploding dynamite, will be liablo
to bo given up. The late Lord Chiof
Justice Cockburn. in the Clerkeuwell
explosion case, laid dowu thiB doctrine,
which the -Spectator thinks must bc hold
by American courts of law: "If a mnn
did an act, more especially if thnt wore
an illegal act, although its immediate
purpose might not bo to take life, yet if
it were Buch that life was necessarily endangered by it—if a man did bucIi nn
act, not with tbo purpose of taking lifo,
but with the knowledge or belief that
life was likoly to bo sacrificed by it—
that waB murder."

War, in replying to the question whether a recent article from tho pen of General Lord Wolseley, published in Harper's Magazine, was not an infraction of
the military regulations, expressed tho
opinion ttiat it was not. He had, however, communicated with Lord Wolseley
on the Subject and the latter bad answered that ho had not intended to infringe ou tho army regulations and assured him (Stanhope) that the act in
question would not be repeated.
Mr. Chamborlin said that ho should
decline to support Mr. Ackland's amendment regretting the failure of the Speech
from the Throne to mention freo primary education, boeauso it Implied a
want of confidonco in the Government.
A scene of disorder ensued during which
Sir William Harcourt taunted Mr.
Chamberlin with incosiatency. The
Irisli Catholic members voted with Ack-
land to disappoint the Govornmont who
expected thoir support. Mr. Ackland's
amendment was rejected. Mr. Smith

SURREY NOTES.

Tho weather has beon delghtful for
tho past week, bright sunny days and
dry froBty nights, just cold enough to be
healthy. Thore is quite a stir just now
about tho Victoria, WestminBter and

the schemo will be carried out in the
near future; a large number of sales of
real estate, and options for short terms
on other lands havo transpired during
tho last few days, along the Bhore of
Semiahmoo Bay, than which thore Ib
no placo on tho Pacific coast better adapted for a seaside summer resort; the
most enchanting views, delightful drives
and walks; tlie old traditional associations, (this being the home of the Semiahmoo tribo of Indiana and the scone of
aome of the most sanguinary conflicts
between tbem and the northern invaders who attacked and nearly exterminated them about 100 years ago;) there
aro also the remains ol tho old military

the boundary agitation by the American
and British troopa; the beautiful and
broad expanse of hard roads which,
wheu the tide is out, are clear and dry,
so that for boating &c, Somiahmoo Bay

FOREST PROTECTION.
CREED REVISION.
Tiik Columbian is pleaBed to noto that
our Provincial legislators are taking action in tlie matter of tlie better protec*
tionof the magnificent forest wealth of the
country againat that fell destroyer, summer fires, which' work such wasteful
havoc overy yoar. During tho interim
between the last and tbe present session
of tho Local Houae thia paper has on
more than one or two occasions called
attention to the fact of the great annual
waste of the invaluable timber resources
oftho Province by devastating forest
fires, and urged that a more stringent
and effective measure Bhould ho put upon tho statute books than the one existing. A persual of tho Bill introduced by
Mr. Croft, member for Cowichan, which
we publish in another column, aud which
will undoubtedly pass as to its substantial sections will show that our legislators are beginning to appreciate the
gravity of the matter and are determined
to provido more efficient deterrent legislation. As compared with the "Bush
Fire Act" of 1874, Mr. Croft's Bill is a
much more comprehensive and complete
measure, containing nine sections as.
againBt three, and providing a larger
pecuniary penalty by fifty dollars, and
also some means tending to the better
enforcement of the Act.
Considerable newspaper comment, for
and against, has been elicited by an
amendment to section 6 which the Premier, Hon. Mr. Robson, endeavored to
have inserted in the Bill (but which
.was lost), to the effect that all lines nnd
penoHies should go to the Crown, instead of one-half to the private prosecutor or informer. The Premier's remarks
on the subject, which we published
briefly the other day, show that he
does not place much faith in the system
of enforcing such a measure aB the
"Bush Fire Act" by means of unpaid,
voluntary informers- or spies, who
should lay information and act as prosecutor for half the fines, and there is
much to be aaid for this view of the
case. What is everybody's business is
nobody's business, is a truism that will
apply here with peculiar force, besides
which, as Mr. Robson showed, the grent
majority of honorable men have an unconquerable aversion to turning informer, especially for pay, even where the
action would be meritorious, which it
generally is, from a law-and-order aud
patriotic standpoint. If we catch the
drift of the Premier's ideas on the subject aright, from his remarks, he believes
tliat ttie law would be much better enforced (which of nourse, is tho main
thing, especially in so important a
matter, where thousands and even millions of dollars worth of timber are at
stake every year) by tho appointment
of regular forest guardians or detectives,
whose business it would bo to
watch against accident and gross
carelessness and to see that the law was
properly enforced, than by depending
upon the voluntary informer plan; and,
therefore, that the fines—which under
his proposal would obviously amount to
a much larger sum than under the voluntary system, owing to the more frequent prosecutions with a given number
of offences—should all go to the Provin-
, cial treasury, as a partial offset to the
the cost of properly enforcing the law.
But the House did not see it in that
light, and voted dowu the amendment!
As it is, however, the Bill, if it becomes
law in its present Bhape, will be likely
to prove more efficient than the Act
which it will replace on the Provincial
Statutes, aa the latter neither holds out
a reward to the informer nor provides
better means for punishing the offenders.
Our morning cotemporary iu this city,
which we were about to congratulate on
its improved appearance and tone of
late, lira recent issue appears to strain a
point, for what reason we kuow not, in
its criticism of Mr. Robson's amendment
referred to, and brings itaelf to the conclusion that "perhaps Mr. Robson and
" the Government are of the opinion
"that it ian trifling matter, and not
" worth becoming very.serious about."
It will be obvious, we think, from Mr,
Robson's amendment, taken in connection with his remarks, that bo considers
tbe matter a more serious one than all
those who opposed tho amendment, bo
seriouB, in fact, that he believes proper
machinery should be provided for the
enforcement of protective legislation,' instead of leaving this very necessary enforcement to loss business-like and more
haphazard, if cheaper, methods. It Is
almost certain that, when the explorations which tho Premier referred to on
the occasion of ttie discussion on the
"Bush Fire Act" have been carried out,
and the timber areas of tbe Province
have been accurately ascertained and
defined, proper machinery will he provided for the enforcement of whatever
protective legislation may be on the
statute books, and without which such
legislation would be little better than a
dead letter.
Bribp references have appeared in
the telegrams lately relative to the important discussion in the Now York
Presbytery on the subjeot of a revision
of the WestminBter Confession. After
a vigorous debate which lasted two
weeks, says tho Toronto Mail, reviewing
the discussion and itB reaults, the Presbytery decided by a vote of 67 to IB in
favor of the revision of the WestminBter
ConfeBSion, and subsequently determined upon the changes which it wished
made in that standard of tho Presbyterian faith. The leading advocates of
revision were Professors Hastings aud
Vincent, Union Theological Seminary,
and their chief opponents were Rev. Drs.
Hall and Paxton. The subject was, it
isncedlesB to say, ably and fully discussed, every aspect of it being carefully
presented for the consideration of the
Preabetery. Tho decision arrived at
was of the greatest importance because
the New York presbytery is conceded to
bc the most influential iu the General
Assembly and the strongest in the
United States, and many smaller presbyteries were waiting to see what course
the metropolitan body would pursue.
It may now be assumed, it Ib believed,
that a large majority of the 200 presbyteries to wliich the overture of the General Assembly was submitted laBt yeari
will declare in favor of revision. The
Chicago Presbytery haa already douo so,
as have alao some thirty-seven others
of tho fifty prcBbyterleB in tlie United
States that have voted upon tlie question.
The greater question that will arise
when the subject comes again before
the General Assembly is, what shall be
the extent of tho revision? Some favor
merely the alteration or modification of
what are styled the offensive portions of
the Westminster Confession, while
others desire the substitution of a new
and simpler creed. It is not at all improbable that, if it he found that revision ia certain to be carried in the As*
sembly, many of ita opponents will support the latter plan. At New York they
took the ground that any attempt at revision would open up religious questions
which it ia uot wiae to discuss, and
whicli had bettor be allowed to paas into
obscurity. Doubtless, therefore, they
would favor the adoption of some new
and simple statement of belief rather
than see any attempt made to settle
these questions in accordance with
modern religious ideas. The changes
recommended by the New York Presbytery are certainly of a radical character,
They are as follows:
"First-^-We desire that tho third chapter after first section be so recast aa to
include theae things only: The sovereignty of God in election; the general
love of God for all mankind; the salvation in Christ Jesus provided for all,
and to be preached to overy creature.''
"Secondly—We desire that the tenth
chapter bc so revised as not to appear to
discriminate concering infanta dying in
infancy, or so as to omit all reference to
them (section 3); and so aB to preclude
that explanation of section 4 which
makes it teacti the damnation of all the
heathen, or makes it deny that thero
are any elect heathen, who are regenerated and saved hy Christ through the
Spirit, and who endeavor to walk in
penitence and humility, according to
the measure of light wnich God had
been pleased to grant them."
It had also been proposed that some
modifications Bhould be made in the
references to the Roman Catholic Church
contained in the 24th and 25th chapters
of the Confession, but the Prcabytery
declared that, while it would be glad* to
see auch modifications, it would limit its
suggestions aa above. These suggestions, however, open up old questions
the settlement of wliich most Presby*
terians to-day believe to be nou-esBen*
tial to the stability of the Church, and
from the discission of whicli no good
can reault. There ie much, therefore,
to be said in favor of dropping the Confession altogether, and substituting for
it a shorter creed, positive and free in
statement of facts, which can boused
alike for public and private worship-
something similar, in short, to the
Apostles' or the Nicene Creed. ThiB, at
all events, is tlie view of many who feel
that there is need for modifications in
the standard of Presbyterian faith, but
who fear the results of any attempt to
revise it. On these lines the battle will,
no doubt, be fought in tho General Assembly, and it will be an exciting one.
The revision movement in the United
States is only one of many signs of tho
times. In the same country Congregationalism is in a state of unrest, caused
by internal differences as to points of
faith, and in hoth Scotland and England
Presbyterianism is similarly agitated.
What the outcome of all this disturbance will be cannot he surmised, hut
there are those who see in it a means
whereby the desired reunion of disunited
Protestantism may become more easy of
accomplishment. If this be so, then
what to many may now be a source of
the greatest anxiety may prove in the
end a blessing.
The Colonies and India Bays: Another
stand-up flght within the precincts of
the Sydney Parliament has to be recorded. Two members, Mr. Frank
Fariiell, son of the late J. S. Farnell,
ono time Premier of the colony, and Mr.
Ferguson, started wrangling in one of
the lobbies the other niglit, and eventually got to blows. Each member appears to have had a corner, and the fight
was carried to a finish before any police
arrived to interfere. The number of
rounds fought is not mentioned, but the
battle seems to have ended in a kind of
a double foul, the two combatants having
got locked together on the floor in a
deadly embrace. After a lot of trouble
the men were separated and taken
home.

The municipal elections which took
place in Salt Lake City on Monday,
Feb. 10, are regarded aB the most important ovor held in that city. The
issue was a straight one between
Mormonism and anti-MormoniBm,
fend the latter won a signal
victory. Tho Gentiles, or Liberals, claim
a majority of 1,000, while the Mormons
i.dmit that they are beaten by 400. This
is tho Becond electoral defeat that the
latter have experienced in six months,
und ns the government of Salt Lake
City Ib now in the hands of the Gentiles
it would seem as if tbe days of polygamy
were numbered in Utah. There is the
more reason therefore to fear that an
effort may be made to transplant it into

Not very long ago, according to tho
Cambridge (Maas.) Chronicle, Rev. Dr.
Phillip Brooks called on a friend in
that city who is the happy mother of
tliree children—two boys and a little
girl. Dr. Brooks Boon had all three of
tbe little folks about him ahd was questioning them in regard to their viewB of
an occupation when they should be
'grown up." One boy would be an
architect, he said, and plan Queen Anne
houses; the other thought he would be
a poet, like his late distinguished grandfather. "And what would you wish to
be, iny dear," said the clergyman to tho
littlo four-year-old daughter of the house.
" I think, sir?" she replied modestly, as
she caressed her doll, " that I Bhould
like to be a mother."
The marvellous influence wh..;h Stanley exercised, not only over his Zanzibar!
followers, but also over all the. natives
with whom he was brought into contact
during his trans-African expedition, is
attributed by hia European companions
to thcpeculiar expression of hiB eyes.
One of the latter describes them as follows: "He first looks at the natives as
if he waB going to eat them, and then
when they give in and do what he wants
he looks as if he had done ao, aud waB
grateful to them for the meal." HiB
eyes are Btated frequently to display
that strange far-away light which constituted the most striking characteristic
of the late General Gordon's personal
appearance. Gordon, like Stanley,
seemed to possess a supernatural influence over the natives of Africa, who regarded the puny and delicate-looking
littlo General with the same awe as
they inanifeat toward Stanley.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is somewhat surprising to learn
that the English Methodists are contemplating the organization of a "sisterhood." It is true, nevertheless, says an
exchange. Recognizing the good that
is being accomplished by women workers in other churehea under this system,
a call has been made for a thousand
women of good social position in Methodism to become "sisters of the people,"
and the next General Conference will be
asked to make provision for the carrying
on of their work.
It is probable, says Truth (London),
that the Emperor William will visit
France very shortly. The Grand Duke
of Mecklonburg-Schwerin, who is passing the winter at Cannes, in accordance with his usual custom, has had another relapse, and is again seriously ill,
and If he Bhould become worse the Emperor is going to see him, travelling by
way of Milan and Genoa. Every arrangement has ltoen privately made for
this expedition, during which the Emperor will preserve the strictest incognito.

AN UGLY CUSTOMER.
Hov Fred Harper Discovered the
Sheep Thief.
"I've stood this kind of business 'bout
as long as I Bhall," said Fred Harper
coining in from the pasture where the
sheep and lambs were kept.
"What troubles yoa now, Fred?" wked
his father, anxiously
"There's another sheep gone out of
the flock since I looked them up the first
of the week," replied Pred, ai he
scrubbed his faoe vigorously at tbe dink.
"Another one gone!" exclaimed Mra
Harper. "Something must bo catching
them. Perhaps a bear from Potter's
mountain baa come across Sucker brook
to our ridge."
"We've lost three sheep and a lamb
and Mr. Elklns has Inst his calf wtthln
ill weeks," Bald Fred, excitedly "It a
bear caught tbem 1 think 'tie strange f
can't find a trace of the plaoe whore he's
taken thom. Not a bit of wool or any
thing to show where they woro caught
and eaten can be found In that pasture."
"It does seem strango," assented his
father, aB he raised himself on his elbow
and looked outof tho window. "You'll
have to do tho l»jst you can, Fred; 1 oan
not be much help to you yet."
Mr Ilarper waB Just recovering from a
severe illness ana waB Btill too feeble to
worry much about tbe farm work.
About the disappearance of the sheep
Fred had his own opinion, which he waa
determined to verify that very night, tf
possible.
lie said nothing to his father, or Indeed to any one, of his intention, hut he
was resolved to watoh in the midst of
that flock of sheop every night until he
had satisfied himself the sheep were
taken in the day-time. Then it would
be time to make further investigations.
That evening, as tho plucky boy of
fifteen was leaving the shed with an axe
on his shoulder and an old robe to spread
on the ground under him, he encountered his Bister Nellio, a year younger
than himself.
"What are you doing, Fred?" asked
ahe,
"I'm going to camp up on the ridge
by tbat big, lone maple, where the sheep
oome at night," replied Fred, as he put
down the axe and began to roll up hiB
robe so as to oarry it easily.
"What makcB you do that?" asked
she, In astonishment. "I don't believe
mother would wnnt you to."
"1 am in hopes to find out who's stealing our Bheep at:d lambs," said Fred.
"I mistrust Hunk Qaroelon, and if I
. catch him at it I'll spoil his appetite for
mutton for one while."
"Oh, Fredl May he 'tis a hear after
all! I'm so 'fraid something'! 1 happen
to you. Can't I go, too?" entreat!ngly.
"Go, tool I should smilel Why, you'd
be scared to death befpre morning," returned he.
"No, I wouldn't either; and you'll he
dreadful lonesome up there all alone,
Fred. Can't I please go?* coaxed she.
"No, Indeed, Nellie, I couldn't let
you," said he, decldodly. "Tho houso
Ib not moro thun forty rods on* and all In
sight and hoarlng, und I can como down
If I got very sick of it. Don't tell
mothor, she'd worry so; but you see we
must save tho sheop to pay the doctor's
bill."
He again shouldered his axe and
marched off down tho road to tho pasture bars and up the steep lodgo to the
maplo, whoro he ensconced himself
under tho tree and In tho shadow ot a
huge pllo of cord wood, hauled there
and "yarded" tho winter beforo from
higher up on the rldgc, whon a new
clearing was being mado.
it was a bright moonlight night and ho
could see his home almost aB plainly as
in tho day-time.
Nellie went up to her room and raised
tbe window, "so as to koop Fred company," sho said to herself, and ltsoomcd
nearer to have tho window wido open.
.She had determined to keep watoh with
him evon if Bhe wore not permitted to
join him.
Tho sheep camo back and settled down
near tho dark shadow of the wood pilo
where Fred had disappeared, as If a
human companion were agreeable to
them, and all was quiet onco moro.
An hour passod and Nellie found herself nodding and rightly guessed tbat
Fredi tired with hia hard day's work
must be fast asleep.
It was now halt-past ton o'olock and
•he felt ft itrong inclination to retire,
but resisted because of the feeling that
It would be leaving Fred alono and in
danger!
She strained her eyea to catoh a
glimpse of him in the gloom that surrounded the shady Bide of that wood
pile.
Suddenly there was a scampering
among the sheep, and while Bhe held hor
breath and clung to the window in her
excitement there waa a frightened
scream followed by loud calls for help.
She waited for nothing more, but
sprang down the hack stairs and turned
Rover loose. The instant the intelligent dog was free he disappeared with
ft savago growl in the direction of tho
struggle, which now Bhe could plainly
hear.
Let us now roturn to Fred.
He waa awakened by the scattering of
the sheep and lay quite atill for a moment grasping his axo and looking to
see if it waa a bear or Hank Qarcelon, as
be had imagined, that was depleting the
flock.
What ailed that tree? Ho did not remember tbat either limit reached the
ground when he waa there thai morning
Now It waa sweeping the ground and
waving ln tho air moro than any of tho
otber limbs       ^
Great Soottl Look at those glittering
eyes! With thesoream Nellie bad beard
he sprang to hia feet to face the oscillating body oapped by tho horrible head
of an immenso snake!
The long limb of that tree had evolved
a great serpent!
Months bofore the story hod been circulated that a python had escaped from
a traveling monagerio whioh had been
exhibiting ln that vicinity, but peoplo
had laughed at the report as a good advertisement and alao a good excuse for
the absence from their exhibition ot the
interesting reptile.
Here he was to-night to answer for
himself, however. Nothing to laugh at,
either!
He had probably been colled undor
that pile of wood or quite possibly within
tbat very tree-top all through that hot
July day.   The coolness and quiet of
■ evening had tempted him out for recreation ur  plunder, and poor Fred hod
jihoaon tbe right timo and place to get a
fgood view of a "rare specimen," without
paying hia quarter!
Fred raised bis axe to strike, but before he could bring It down upon the
sleek, fat body of his dreadful antagonist there was a blood-curdling hiss, a
lightning-like glide along the short distanco between them, and the snake,
with one sweep of his lithe coll, had enveloped tho hoy's body and right arm ln
an ovor-tlghtenlng told that, without
immediate outsido interposition, would
soon have rendered this story too tragic
to be told.
Then rang out his cries for help from
those who would so gladly aid him did
tbey know hts peril.
As he struck away tbe distended jaws
and awaylng head, whtoh seemed to be
forever before hts faoe, and every moment to threaten him, his situation was
not unlike that of Laocoon of old-
Alt bis efforts seemed tc bo ln vain;
the awful, crushing constriction was fast
telling upon his Btrength and he fell on
one knee upon tne dotty oi tne python.
q He will never forget just  bow tt
seemed; the cold, slimy surface and its
ivory-like Impenetrability and resistance
to the touch ot his hands.
Could no one hear his cries, whtoh he
felt were growing fainter?
Juat as he was about to succumb to
hia fate, and the fierce compression of
that tense, steel-like coil, so cold, so revolting, had passed the limit of endurance, he heard Rover's savage growl
and with a last cry of: "Take him,
Rover! Take him, old fellow!" he
fainted.
As Nellie rushed down the road to the
pasture bars she encountered a two-
horso hay-rack loaded- with the paraphernalia of hay-making and with three
men on board; neighbors returning from
outtlng hay on a distant meadow.
Sho hastily summoned them to her
assistance.
Thoy arrived on the ridge just in time
to hear Fred's last ory, and see Rover
plunge dosperutely to tho rescue.
Whon Rover's sharp teeth olosed in the
snake's body, ho swopt one coll from
about tho boy, and turning like a flash
attacked the dog, hissing angrily.
Rover sprang back In affright, but,
still true to his young master, he immediately oharged upon hts foe with renewed vigor. But here the terror-
stricken spectators came to their senses;
and while ono pounded the audacious
cannibal with a pitch fork he had
brought with him from the wagon, another seized the axe Fred had dropped,
and out him Into a dozen pieces boforo
he would let go his vise-like grip upon
poor Fred, who now lay like one dead.
The boy was takon home, and hy their
united efforts waa finally restored to
consciousness. He looked around tho
room, at his nearly frantic mother; at
his father, pale and trembling, seated
beside tbe bed; took as long a breath as
his strength and the recent squeezing
ho had boen subjected to would admit,
and asked tn a votoe scarcely above a
whisper:
Am I dead, father? Did he getaway,
Mr. Burton?" turning to the rescuer,
who was rubbing his arm, which was
numb and powerless.
No," replied Burton. "We got there
just in time to prevent his getting away
with you Insido him.   He's dead."
All right, then," whispered Fred. "I
guess he broke a rib for me, hut I can
stand that as long as he'll never get a
chanco to steul another lamb."
Fred didn't rocover from that encounter for several days, and even now the
sight of ono of tho moat harmless of
snakes gives him an uncomfortable chill.
Uis friendi) thought he displayed good
oourago, but ho often asserted that In
tho supremo moment, when his arm waa
raised to strike, ho would gladly have
taken to his heels and fled if be could,
and that his part tn the battle was
wholly defensive.—Annlo L. Beal, in
Yankee Blade.

HIS LITTLE  MAJESTY.
Some -'feasant Stories About the Baby
King of Spain,
It would probably be hotly disputed
by millions of indignant households
if one should say that the Uttle three-
year-old King ot Spain is the best-beloved baby under the eye oi public
notice, but of a certainty he Ib the most
widely known. All his sayings and
doings are sufficiently interesting to be
put in print, and those who love babies
smile as they read, and declare, with
gracious tolerance, that he ts "almost as
nice a baby as ours."
Tho littlo King baa bad a happy summer at San Sebastian, where he enjoys
more freedom than at Madrid. Every
morning at eight o'olook he steps out on
the balcony of the royal chateau, where
crowds of children wait for him to ap*
pear. Many of them he knows by name,
and, leaning over the railing, he carries on tbe quaintest and moat familiar
of conversations with them all. Presently a littlo tap la heard on the window and hia Majesty retires, crying:
"Adiosaurmirf I must go. Mammals
watting for me."
Shortly after he appears on tho Bands,
whero be digs and paddles to his heart's
content
Whon he goes out to drive the royal
halberdiers range themselves on either
sido the stairs and, as soon as he is seated, ho turns to their chiof, saying, gravely, as ho has been instructed:
"Lot thom rottro."
Evidently young royalty ts prone to
forgot the restrictions of tlmo and place
as completely as ehildron not bound
about by coromony.
Genoral Juan do Cordova la a great
favorito of tho littlo King, who addresses him familiarly as "Juanito"
(littlo John) One day while seated bosido his mother at muss his Majosty
caught sight of thla friend knoellng In
tho nave ol tbe cathedral, and at onoe,
amid one of the solemn pauses, he he
gan to shout with great glee:
"Hollo, there's Junlatol Hello, there.
Juanito! Juanito!"

A RAZOR'S TEMPER.
In Host Init-anoM Xt Improves M th*
Blade Get! Older.
"How does tbat razor go?" queried a
well-known tonsorlal artist of a reporter a tew days ago as the latter was
being shaved.
"It pulls a little," was the reply.
"That's just what I thought," uttered
the barber, as he wiped the blade carefully and proceeded to strop another
which he selected from a number lying
on his shelf.
"Do you know," he continued, "that
razors are just as freaky and changeable as women? Why, that razor I just
put away, after a' good honing, will
sometimes shave twenty or thirty men
with only a slap or two over the strop
once in awhile, and perhaps some other
time the edge will be gone after I have
shaved two customers. Of course some
people olaim that the difference in
beards accounts for this, and that la In
a great measure true, but oftentimes
the edge will go back on a fellow while
shaving a man whose beard ta like silk.
"Another peculiar thing about them
is tbat they will not work for other people the same as for the man whose custom it Is to use them. Now, I would just
as soon think of throwing all those nico
blades you soe lying on the shelf away
as to lot some other man hone or strop
thom tor me. What's the roason? Well,
it lies just hero. There are many dlfforont kinds of edges, and only the man
who ts used to tho razor can know what
they will stand. Ho has to study them, of
course, and ho will know just what
stroke to mako on his oilstone and what
passes to mako on his strops. The razors
scorn to become acquainted with the
touch of tbo man who constantly bandies
them, and work well for him; when. If a
strango barber ahould take one, his
work with it would be likely to be
rather poor for some time—in fact, until
he had nursed the sensitive blade
around to hts ways and bts peculiar
touch."
"Whtoh do you consider the best razor
to buy—the most expensive or the
cheaper grades?"
"I was just coming to that No, I
don't tbink that as a rule expensive
razors are much better to use than those
of medium price and quality. Now
there ts a razor," satd he, taking one
with a horn handle down from the shelf,
"that I bought tn an auction room for
twenty-five cents. That was cheap
enough, you must confess, yet cheap
as It was, it ia now one of the best razors
on my shelf, it having turned out exactly as I would wish. This razor Ib good
on almost any face, while some othera
which I have, while I oan shave one man
with them with ease, another man may
Bit down tn my chair and that same
razor will pull so that the customer will
cry out with pain.
"Another Interesting fact about tbem
la that they improve with age, that ia,
tho temper will Improve, and I have had
razors in my possession whtoh were of
no earthly use to me, but after laying
them away for a year or two I would pick
thein up onoe more, when I would find
them flrst-class in every particular."—

JEFFERSON ON SNORING.
Incidents of nn Old-Time Hinge Journey
Across the Alleghanlun.
A short way from town there was a
long hill up which the horsos toiled, ao
this gave the inmates ot the coach time
to settle themselves down tor a quiet
nap. One snore after another announced
the accomplishment ot this feat, and in
a fow minutes at least six out of tho
nine passengers wore oblivious of thoir
miserablo condition. I never beforo had
s.0 fine an opportunity to study tho
philosophy ot snoring. A largo, fat man
opposito mo had a short, angry snoro;
at one timo he snored so loudly that he
wolto hlmaoU up, and ho had tho impudence to glare about at tbe company as
though he hopod that they would not
make that noise again. The old lady
who was crushing me up in tho corner
snored doepty and contentedly. Somo
ono off In a dark cornor, whom I could
not soe, had a genial wuy of joining in,
as though ho snorod morely to oblige
the passengers; but the grand, original
muacian ot tho party aat oppoalte me.
I nover heard any thing approaching
him, olthor for quality or for compass.
It waa a back-action snoro that began In
a bold agitato movement, suddenly
brought up with a jerk and terminated
In a low whistlo. As tho coach steadily
moved up the hill the band was tn full
play, The summit gained, there was a
sharp orook of tbe whip, the horses
started, and as every body was jerked
violently backward, tbe snoring gave
place to oaths and pshaws and jolting
about. As soon, however, as we got
used to this sensation, the chorus begun
again; and as I was quito overcomo and
tired, I joined in until the coach camo
to a full stop at the stable where the
horses were to be changed. The sun
now ros'o and oame tn at all aorta of
places, waking and blinding overy body
What a discontented and unhappy lot
we were! and how we all hated one another!
Breakfast at lost! Abl bot coffee, ham
and eggs and buckwheat cakes! The
meal was not half over before we were a
hand of brothers. We .could not do
enough for one another, and all waB
harmony and peace. Of course under
those conditions we became moro familiar, and one vied with another In
making tho time pass agreeable-

A VERY  NIOE WIFE.

tho hour was early In the small figures.
What ahould he do? lie had nover

The new rooms will be a credit to the
Club, and they will be furnished with
all the material necessary to make ifc a

The Latest Freight Order.
Tlie Winnipeg Commercial says that
the Canadian Pacific has just issued an
important order concerning freight traffic. This is to the effect that the mixed
carload regulations have beeu abolished.
Some months ago au order was issued
which permitted the shipment of car
lots ot goods of different kind*, at
straight carloads, provided of course
that the goods all belonged to the same
freight classification. Thia regulation
hns now beeu abolished, and in order to
tako advantage of carloads lefts, goods
will require to be of one line. As the
order was enforced without previous notice, it will likely inconvenience some
who have cars on the way. Carloads of
goods of a mixed nature, will hereafter
be charged rates for smaller quantities.

Different Arrangement! Wanted.
Harrison River Station on the C.P.R.
iB the point where people going to and
coming from Chilliwack and vicinity
leave and take the train. There ia no
telegraph office at this Station, and never
u fire in the waiting room, bo that travellers who have crossed the river in open
boats ure obliged to sit und shiver in tbe
cold waiting room until the train comes
along. Ab there are no means of learning whether or not the train is late,
travellers are always forced to be at the
Station on schedule time, and in the cold
waiting room they are often obliged to
wait for hours. And again when the
train arrives lute, and the night is too
stormy or dark to cross to Chilliwack,
ladies and children have frequently heen
forced to remain in this comfortless
apartment during the whole night, This
iB a matter that calls for the immediate
attention of Mr. Abbott, and we hope he
will not allow thia state of things to
remain an longer.

About daylight thia morning two suspicious men wero Been to enter the shed

Tho fact wob Immediately reported to

and investigated. He discovered a small
bundle stowed away in a corner, and on
opening it he found two good coats and
a vest, which, though worn, wore ull
fair looking garments antl much too
valuablo to oe given away or thrown
aside as unlit for further use. The
goods had evidently been stolon from
some house during the night, and if anyone has lost articles of this kind thev
can recover tliem ut ine locicup.
Chief Pearce remained iu tho vicinity
of the ice house for a couple of hours in
hopes thnt the men would turn up, for
they have heen identified uud will bear-
rested ou sight. But, of courac, the
rascals were too cunning to he caught

Import unt to  Farmers.
The summer of 1889 was not a favorable one iu some parts of tbe Dominion
for maturing a high quality of sued
grain. RuBt prevailed to Mich an extent
as to interfere with its usual develop
ment and plumpness. Where the rust
was severe the grain iB unusually light,
und its percentage of germinating powor
hna been considerably reduced. This is
especially the case with oats. Judging
from samples received for testing, this
injury has been greatest in the Maritime Provinces, und in some districts in
Ontario. The important bearing of well
developed, vigorous seed, of high germinating power, on good crops is now
recognized by nil thoughtful farmers,
and uo one who bus any Beed on bund,
the vitality of which is questionable,
should allow himself to remain long in
uncertainty ub to its value. The seed
testing department at the Central Experimental Farm is now in full operation, and every farmer iu the Dominion
Ib invited to send any samples of which
he may have doubt to this institution
for test. The time occupied lu testing
is usually about a fortnight; an ounce
or two is sufficient for the purpose.
Samples may be sent through the mail
to Wm. Saunders, Director Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, free of postage, and the returns will be made us
promptly as possible, and free of charge.
The name and address of the sender
should be written plainly, and accompany ench package.

HomotliliiK fur Parents.
About 4.30 o'clock yesterday afternoon
a man considerably under the influence of
liquor was passing down Mnry Streot
and when opposite the Methodist church
he met a number of boys and girls who
commenced to laugh at him and pass
rather impertinent remarks. The man
was exceedingly good-natured and after
saying a few amusing things to the
children proceeded to sing them a song.
When he concluded one of the little girla
cried out "Oh, you're crazy," and the
rest all roared and shrieked at the fellow, who feeling disgusted at this trentment, turned about and staggered down
the street. He - was not to get off so
easily, however, for the boys were ready
for him, and pelted him with snowballs.
The drunken man stood the attack
quietly for some momenta, but finally
became enraged and rushed after the
youngsters using very bad language und
threatening to shoot them, following the
threat by putting his hand In the hip
pocket of his trousers as if to draw a
revolver. Of course, tho boys run down
the lino aB fast ub their legs could curry
them, but the man was too unsteady on
his feet to mako quick progress, and the
lads escaped.
It would be well for parenta to caution
their children against annoying drunken
men. If the fellow above mentioned
had drawn a revolver iu a drunken rage
And shot one of the boys who annoyed
him, it would not have surprised the
half-dozen people  who witnessed the

Victoria, Feb. 22.—Crowds of people
stood to-duy at the corner of Government
and Fort Streets to see the electric cars
go past. Fuvoruble comments were
heard on every side und there ia little
doubt thut the enterprise und energy
which placed this great convenience at
the service of the Victoria public will be
richly rewarded. With the exception
of u few short excursions off the track,
which were expected, the cars hnve
worked splendidly. The manner in
which the curs took the curves and
switches was beautiful, and the rate of
speed attained on the straight was flattering in tbe highest degree. Invitations to attend the formal opening of the

TIMBER PROTECTION.
An Act to Prevent the Carelesi Uso of
Fire ln Woods nud Forests.
Following is the full text of the Bill
introduced into the Provincinl Assembly
by Mr. Croft, and whicli has been reported to the House complete with a
trifling amendment in section 8, providing that the Act shall not apply to city
municipalities:
1. The "Bush Fire Act, 1874" is hereby repealed.
2. Every person who shall, between

GOLDEN BRICKS.
The   First   nml   Only   Perfect   Test   or
Carllioo Ore.
By the last. Cariboo mail Mr. Joseph
Mason, senior M. P. P. for that district,
received two gold bricks, the result of
the treatment of one hundred tons of
quartz from the Black Jack mine, situated nenr Barkerville. The teat waa the
only complete one made of any mine by
the government reduction works before
their destruction by fire on the 4th inst.
The value of tho smaller bar is $405.21,
the gold beiug '837 fine, and is that saved on the plates from the free milling
ore. The larger brick is thnt extracted
by the chlorination process from the
concentrates, its value being $2,018.80,
thu gold ■01)0 fine. It is of a rich yellow
color, like unto the finest washed gold
from the surrounding creeks. The two
brickfl total $2,424.01. Included inthe
100 tons treated wero some 20 tons of
concentrates previously treated, but from
which only 00 per cent, of the gold had
bceu taken. These were ugaiu put
through the process, and another 30 per
cent., or about $325, secured* Tliis
would make the value of the Black Jack
ore per ton to be $21, a price at which it
would pay well to work. Ninety per
cent, of the gold contained in the concentrates was saved by the process.
The successful treatment of this Black
Jack quartz proves conclusively that the
ores of Cariboo will well repay the attention of capitalists, for thnt thoy cun ho
profitably worked is placed beyond quea-
1 ion. The Black Juck ledge was discovered after the earth had been washed
from the Black Jack hydraulic mine,
which, in the old golden days of Barkerville, wub mined by drifting and yielded
Urge returns. There nre few who will
question the belief that the milliona of
gold taken from the creeks and lulls of
Cariboo were the washings from the
quartz veins. In fact the quart/, gold
lound with that which has been washed
by centuries proves this to be the case.
The destruction of tho test works is
most unfortunate for Cariboo, for their
rebuilding will occupy a full year's time.
Miners who wero awaiting their turn to
have it test made of the ore from their
locations will be compelled to wait until the now worka nre completed. Howover, the one satisfactory test which has
beeu made has demonstrated that the
Cariboo ores arc workable, and that
profitably, und no doubt capital will be
attracted. As it is, English capitalists
through the uid of Rand Bros, agency,
have sent their engineer for n roport.
Hia report was most favorable, and since
it was placed before the directors a number of claims, including the Black Juck
mine, the B. C. M. &M. Co. properties,
tho Island Mountain, und u number of
othera, huve been handed to the company, whose intention it Ib lo develop
i.hem with the ultimate design of building extensive works for their treatment.
There is ulso the probability that a railway will penetrate Cariboo district to
Barkerville, und thus provido the one
thing lacking to develop tho mines—
rapid and cheap transportation nnd
•heap labor.
Everyone who bus visited tho mining
districts of Cariboo, and especially that
surrounding Barkerville. is amazed ut
the numerous ledges which ure met
with at every turn. There is sufficient
piartz hi sight contained in well-defined
ledges whicli would keep a great number of men and muuy milla working for
yeara to exhaust it. Owing to the
dense growth of shrubs and moss all
through the region hundreds and thous-
ttnds of veins yet remain to be uncovered. The results that would follow the
building of u rallwny into Cariboo are
beyond computation. From the old
worked placer mines on the various
creeks, from placors yet untouched and
from the veins of the district, wil) be
taken many millions of dollars, so much
bo that the past phenomenal output of
the fatnotiB William Creek and its tributaries, from Grouse, Mosquito and
Lightning Creek, will sink Into insigni-
ilcance,—Colonist,
