Went Up in Smoke at
New Westminster on
Tuesday Last.
Tuesday afternoon, fire was discovered in Kirkpatrick's shingle
mill, in the west end of Westminster,
The firemen directed their efforts to
saving nearby buildings as the mill
could not be saved, and the flames
were kept away from the Westminster Packing Company's cannery,
the Fraser River Lumber Company's shingle mill and the Cross
Bros.' floating dry dock.
The residence of W. H. Vianen,
a well-known cacnerynian, was totally destroyed, and his loss will be
about $1,500. At the dry dock was
the ocean-going tug Phoenix, and
the new tug Vid a, and it was thought
at first that they might catch fire
from the sparks, but the dock was
immediately flooded and the phoenix
started her own pumps going and
kept the decks flushed'
The mill employed about seventy
men, of whom three-fourths were
Chltiese and Japanese. Two years
ago, when owned by Mr. Welch,
the same mill was burned, but rebuilt. Thomas Kirkpatrick, of Vancouver, is the present owner, and
the loss, as far as at present known
will be in the neighborhood of
")5so,ooo. The amont of insurance is
not stated and tha orgin of the
fire is unknown, but Chief Watson, of the fire department, is now
making an investigation.
Mrs. Wni. Asbury, sr., died at
her home, Mountain View Farm,
East Delta, on Saturday last. A
week previous she was taken suddenly ill and Dr. King was summoned. A few days later, Dr.
Walker, of New Westminster, was
called for consultation. Both doctors agreed that at her advanced
age aad condition of health nothing could be done to save her life.
Her death was due to gangrene
caused by a blood-clot completely
blocking the femoral artery and
thus stopping all circulation in the
leg. She suffered intensely, but
her end was peace.
The funeral took place on Sunday when a large number of friends
hem Westminster, Mud Bay and
Delta assembled to pay their last
honors to one who was held in <he
very highest esteem by all who
knew her.
The funeral service, both at the
house and grave, was conducted
by her pastor. Rev. A. N. Miller.
The pall bearers were: Messrs. J.
Weaver, J. Oliver, M.P.P.. R. McKee, W. Smillie, B. Everett and ���

On Sanday night, while the
excursion train was proceeding
from Sidney to Victoria, one of tbe
cars left the track, presumably oa
account   of   the   rails  spreading.
Henry Eickhoff, of the Victorian,
thinking something terrible was
about to happen, jumped, and by
so doing is now suffering with a

Among the passengers on the car
at the time were: Mrs. W. H Ladner, H. Burr and family, H. J.

London, May 26.���Never in the
history of British emigration has
there been such a rush as is now
taking place to the farm lands of
Western Canada. At the rate of
over 2,000 a week some of the
most enterprisitig citizens of the
United Kingdom are being driven
by hard times and the scarcity of
work to seek their fortunes in the
undeveloped lands of the greatNorth
American Dominion.
I wonder whether we realize how
much of our ordinary talk consists
of criticism? There is no doubt
that it is immensely interesting to
watch people, to study their characters and ways, and to communicate our impressions about them to
others. Take away the element of
personal criticism and couverMtion,
one must admit, would lose a
good deal of its interest. Yet
is it not a little disturbing sometimes to reflect, after leaving a
house where you have been entertained for half an hour by sprightly and witty comments on mutual
acquaintances, that in all probability your own personality is
furnishing a text for a similar entertainment with the next group of
callers? It is better to be kindly
than to be amusing; it is better
to pass over a good deal that does
not quite commend itself to us (so
long* as no principal is involved)
than to be always making a fight
for one's own way of doing thitigs
at the cost of friction and disagreement. Hundreds of years before
the Christian era, when an Eastern
poet wished to sum up his impressions of perfect womanhood,
he closed his ideal portrait
with these words: "She openeth
her mouth with wisdom, and in her
tongue is the law of kindness."���

London, May 27.���The Sha��hai-
kwan correspondent of tha Daily
Chronicle sends a report received
from New Chwang that on May 23,
thinking that the Japanese had Retired from Fengwangcheng, 15,000
Russians from Haicheng and Liao-
yang marched towards Fengwangcheng.    They were surprised ay
30,000 Japanese in the Tatting pass.
The Russian casualties were 4,000,
and over a thousand surrendered.
The report does not state th*e Japanese losses.
London, May 27.���The Tokio
correspondent of the Daily Express
says it is reported, unofficially, that
the Japanese have captured Kin-
cbou and are now attacking Dalny.
London, May 27.���The Tokio
correspondent of the Daily Mail,
under date of May 26, says: "According to a reliable report the Japanese occupied Kinchou to-day."
St. Petersburg, May 26.��� While
no news has been received fram
General Stoessel, commander of the
Russian troops at Port Arthur, the
war office is inclined to believe that
severe fighting is in progress in the
southern part of the Liaotung peninsula. The general staff denies
the rumors of the final evacuation
of New Chwang, and says the
heavy guns were not taken back
when the town was reoccapied in
Chefoo, May 26.���A letter received here from a 'Japanese correspondent says tbe Japanese landed
troops at Kerr Bay (northeast of
Talienwan Bay, Liaotung peninsula), May 19. After the occupation of Kinchou to-day, the Rus-
sians retired in good order to tbe
heights further south, which were
attacked by the full Japanese force
and carried after a stubborn resistance.
Brown���"Why do you want me
to pay in advance? Are you afraid I
won't bring the horse back?" Liveryman���"No, no; not at all. But,
you see, the horse might come back
withD.it you. "���Atlanta Journal.
St. Petersburg, May 26.���The
general staff is not in a position tonight to confirm or deny the Tokio
report that the Japanese have occupied Kinchou.
The latest official information regarding fighting in that vicinity
was conveyed in General Kttropat-
kin's telegram, which said that the
Japanese had lost 700 men on May
The opinion of the best authorities is that if the Japanese rush
Kinchou, by a frontal attack unsupported by heavy guns, which it
is not believed they possess, the capture of the place must have been
] effected at a tremendous loss to the
1 attacking army.
London, May 26.���The Standard
publishes a despatch from a Russian correspondent, in whom the
paper says it places great confidence, containing most sensational
statements regarding the alarming
condition of Rnssia as to the outcome of the war. Tbe correspondent asserts that disturbances in
various cities have been followed
by wholesale executions without
any civil trial. It is stated that 60
persons have been hanged in Warsaw alone, and that many others
have been hanged at Cronstadt and
Moscow. At the latter place the
troops buried 80 coffins containing
the remains ot those who had been
hanged. The bodies were buried
secretly at the dead of night, presumably in the woods.
The Standard, in an editorial,
says it publishes this correspondent's statements under ail reserve,
but thinks there are many indications, such, for instance, as the sinking of the battleship Orel, that tht
normal disaffections of the people
of Russia has been greatly Stimnlafar
ed by tbe war.

By referring to the article at the
fsbot of this-ccilumni entitled "The
Warble-Fly and Its Woek," it will
be seen tbat we are asked to upset
our eld theories as to bow the egg
of the warble-fly is deposited and
(the insect developed.
Our. fathers have ever taught us
tjhat the egg is deposited in the
springtime on tbe top of tbe animal's back. The hide being punctured for that purpose by tbe fly,
causing the beast to tear off like
mad for the brush, in the hope that
$ xiight remove tbe fly. That tbe
egg being deposited in the hide it
germinates and develops into the
(rub which depreciates the value ot
the hide.
Wbich theory appeals to common
sense, this ot our fathers or that of
Dr. N. S. Mayo, as contained in
tbe article referred to.
We would liko to bear from- anyone, of oar readers- ou this subject,
whick is oi importance to each and
ttveryone of us. Persons sending
in. communications on this subject
zoay uso their initials for publication providing the full name is
given for our own information..
ary. In February or March, these
larva or grubs work their way out
through the small hole in the skin,
fall to* the ground, burrow into din
or litter, pupate, and, some weeks
later, transform into adult flies.
"In rS95, it was estimated that
sixty per cent, ofthe cattle in Kansas were affected with warbles, an.
'the financial loss by damaged hide
was   estimated,    for    the   United
States, ��t from, fifty to sixty millioi
dollars.    Grubby hides are usually
'docked* about one-third.
"Warbles are more prevalent in
tbe western part ef the State and
attack young animals more severely
than older cattle.
"As the adolt flies do not travel
far, tbe cattle owner caw free bis
;herd pretty well from these pests by
treating them at this season of the
prear. If other cattle in the immediate vicinity are affected, the
adnlt flies will travel far enough to
infest neighboring cattle. All cattle
owners should unite to destroy this
"Treatment should begin as soon
as tbe warbles are noticed npon the
animals' backs. Most of the
warbles or grubs can be destroyed
,by putting turpentine, kerosene,
crude petroleum or mercurial ointment in or on the- opening through
the- skin directly over the warble.
If the opening is very small, it
should be enlarged by using a
smooth, pointed stick. A machinist's oil-can having a siender nozzle
furnishes an excellent method o!
applying the medicine- By running the cattle through a chute,
they can-be tueated rapidly. Ca.tle
should be examined in ten day.,
and any escaping the previous
treatment should be destroyed by a
second; or, better, squeezed out and
crushed; or they can be crushed beneath the skin by pinching the
lump, or killed by inserting a pointed wire or large blunt-pointed
'needle. It is important tbat any
grubs squeezed out or escaping
nataral'y should be destroyed, or
they will transform into adult flies."

By a Persistent Cough, but Permanently Cared by Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Mr. H. P.. Burbage, a student at
law i�� Greenville, S. C, had been
troubled for tour ot five years with
a continuous cough which he says,
."greatly alarmed me, causing me
!to fear that I was in the- first stage
of consumption." Mr. Burbage
having seen Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy advertised, concluded to
try it. Now read what he says of
it: "I soon felt a remarkable
ichange and after using two bottles
of the twenty-five cent size, was
'permanently ctued."���Snid, by FJ.

Another moment of hesitation, and than
Lalla draw asida aha silken curtain and
swept In.
Th* palmist was attired In ��� long Crimean domino, with a long black mask, and
wa* apparently about to leave tbe tent by
a'tooond opening to enjoy her well earned
rest and tea. On seeing Leila sbe turned
back and scanned with deep interest tha
curious, imperious face.
"I wl*h,*"" mid tbe fair Intruder, break-
teg silence with difficulty���"I wish you

Imperatively. "It Is only for a few minutes I want these things. Do, do give

By alternate determination and persuasion the self willed girl got her own way,
and th* reluctant palmist retired and
stood oloea against tha tent outside, determined te bear what would be the result
of this strange whim. Leila aoftly stole
to tb* curtain, pulled it aside and said
sweetly: *'You needn't wait. Thank you.
I am all right now."
"I���my���my drees was caught," murmured tbe other, quaking.

Five o'elock rang out ln sonorous pauls
from tha tells of tit. .Simeon's steeple, and

' pulled arid* the curtains and came In
with an air of awkwardness and defiance,
feeling and looking Ilka a guilty person

Leila assumed a low, gentle void*, and,
Mating herself ou one of the pulmlst's

for Sir Felix.
"Yets with to know your past, present

"Yas, If you please."

He obeyed, and held out two well marked palms for ber Inspection. Leila gently

"Well, yea, I'm fairly tidy," said Sir

"You ara quite eorseot.*
