Several years ago a French horse
Won the Derby. "Waterloo avenged!"
cried a Frenchman, rushing down tlie
course. "True," called out a Briton;
"In both cases lie ran very well!"
An Irishman, M. P. for Cork, was
forced to have his leg amputated. A
friend coining to liis bedside exclaimed: "Well, I'm very sorry for you."
"Why?" was the answer. "Because
now you can't stand for the eity." "Stiro
1 can't, can't IV All right, though, I
can at lens! slump the country."
The army museum lu Paris hns just
acquired a watch formerly belonging
to the bravest of the brave, Marshal
Ney. A history attaches to this watch,
which was given to Ney by Napoleon.
On the uioi'iilng of Austerlltz, so says
the tradition, Napoleon asked Ney tlie
time. "Ky your watch," replied the
Marshal, taking it out of his pocket,
"ll is the hour of victory."
And still one more, a Utile tale which
Is declared to be recorded in the journal of John Wesley, renowned father of
Methodism. This clergyman was
brought before the mayor of a certain
town, charged with having wrought
disturbance by street preaching. "Vou
ought to have known," said the mayor,
"that here ihis sort of thing is not permitted by tlie mob." "Pardon," said
Wesley, "bul I wasa't eveu aware Unit
tills town of yours wns governed by n
mob," There Is a grent subtlety in that
repartee.
Two rival manufacturers of French
coffee met beforen judge. Thelntteriook
up one of the contestant's empty cans.
"1 do not consider," affirmed the judge,
"that this is an honest label. On the
front you place, in large letters, 'Pure
French Coffee,' and on the buck, lu
small letters, in very small letters, you
print, 'A Compound of Chlcor . etc.
The person tints addressed mused for
a moment. 'Then he snld, quit, meekly: "But will your lordship kindly explain to the jury by what means you
distinguish between tlie front and back
of a round can?"
Some twenty years ago Depew and
Horace Porter took a little pleasure
trip lo Europe together. Soon after
their return home they met at a large
banquet at the Brunswick. Of course
the incidents of their trip afforded ench
of them abundant material for fun-
niaking. "1 uever knew how stingy
Depew really was," said General Porter, "until 1 crossed the ocean wllh
him. Why, gentlemen, he didn't offer
to buy a bottle of wine during the trip."
"What was Ihe use of my buying
wine?" retorted Depew, "when 1 could
have Porter for nothing."
A now famous physician relates tliat
early In his career lu the city where lie
was located there resided au elderly
physician, who was always ready to
give hlm wholesome advice. One
morning the young practitioner was
called to visit a man who wns very sick.
Ou his way he fortunately happened to
meet-hls old friend, llie doctor, and,
as usual, he had something of importance to say. He drew it out so long,
however, that the younger man grew
Impatient and finally said: "Doctor,
you will have to excuse me, I a:u on
my way lo visit a gentleman, who is
snld lo be dangerously ill." "Dninit
man," was the unexpected reply, "give
the ninn a chance," nnd the old fellow
resinned the subject he was discussing.
An Austrian princess once asked tlie
Duke of Wellington: "How is It thnt
we in Vienna speak French so much
better than you English?" To which
the duke replied: "Well, princess, if
Napoleon hnd twice visited London
with his armies, as lie lias Vienna, I
have no doubt we should be much more
familiar with tlie French language."
Louis Philippe of France Introduced
to the Duke of Wellington one of the
French marshals whom he had beaten
In the peninsula. The marshal partly
turned his bnck to the Duke, whicli
greatly displeased Louis Philippe, who
apologized to the Duke for his marshal's rudeness. "Forgive hlm, sire,"
said the Duke, "I taught him to do that
in the peninsula."
In a certain case, Mr, Balison wns a
young lawyer of a Western town, while
the opposing counsel, Mr, Carter, was
a much better known attorney of a
neighboring city. Mr. Babson was nd-
drcssliig the jury, and having explained a point of law to the jurors, he turned to Mr. Carter with the words: "Isn't
that right V" Mr. Carter thought that
he had a very verdant subject on his
hands, nud, wllh a smile of conscious
superiority, replied: "1 have an office
lu 0., and if you have any legal problems that you desire to have solved, I
shall be pleased to enlighten you, for a
financial consideration." Not In the
least abashed, Mr. Babson drew from
his pocket a 10-cent piece and held it
out toward Mr. Carter with the words:
"Here, tell us whnt you know and hand
back the change." In the roar of laughter whicli followed the court joined.
The Emperor of Germany was returning to Potsdam one evening last summer after a very long walk, and, feel-
lug very tired, he looked out In all directions for a carriage. However, tho
ouly vehicle in sight was a broken-
down farm wagon, In which sat a
young peasant woman. For lack of a
better conveyance the Emperor decided to ride back to Potsdam In this one,
nnd he requested the woman to give
him a seat. She looked at him rather
suspiciously, and, seeing tliat he was
covered with dust, she positively refused to let hlm get Into the wagon.
"I don't like his looks," she said, half
aloud, as Bhe urged her horse to a trot,
"and I Wouldn't feel easy with a fellow
Ilice that beside me." A hundred yards
further on slur met a soldier, who stopped her and asked. "Whnt did Ihe Emperor want of you':' "I duu't understand you," she replied. When he told
her that the dust-covered ollicer whom
she had treated with such scant courtesy was the ruler of Germany, she
trembled with fear, and at once lushed
her horse into a gallop and quickly dis.

GEORGE   WASHINGTON;
1799.
Yawn anil  Laugh Often.
It is not so very long ngo since 11 foreign scientist discoursed on tlie benefits of yawning.    This act, which    Is
generally regarded as partaking of the
nature of a tired condition ior symptoms of such a condition) of ihe respiration and of the need (or fresh air, Is
snld lo lie of great service in Clearing
Hie Eustachian tubes   of   the   ems.
These tubes lend from the back of the
mouth to the inner side of the eardrum, and a yawning Is looked upon
lu this light as a hygienic exercise
which benefits tlie structures in question.
Another scientist has no difficulty In
showing that wheu we laugh we Increase the piny of tension In our lungs.
One result of this Increased tension Is
to arrest the blood-flow in the lungs
nnd to Induce the taking of deep Inspirations. These latter nre healthful
tilings, for many pints of our lungs are
not culled info active use In ordinary
breathing. The apex, or top of the lung,
Is notably a part which does not actively participate in the movements of
breathing, untl ns this is tlie special
seat of consumption-attack, wc may
reasonably hold that the law of disuse
explains the greater liability of this
portion of flip organ to the onset of
disease. The free and active use of a
part, strengthening nud Inning it as It
were, Is an essential condition for
health. Hence laughter, by bringing
Into piny the whole of the lungs, or nt
least by favoring an Increase of lung
work. Is to be reckoned nn admirable
exercise.
Besides this physical effort of laughter, we have also to take into account
Its mental side. There is a certain
brain-stimulus to be noted, a psychic
rcsjajll, in addition to the physical effect, and It is pretty certain the mental
phase of a good, hearty laugh is, iu its
way, as healthful ns is its physical ns-
pect. Singing Is nlso praised as nu excellent lung exercise, and public speaking Is as effective a lung tonic ns one
mny wish for. Tlie only drawback to
tlie work of the speaker is the foul
condition of ihe atmosphere iu which
lie lias often to do liis work.

There seems to be a curious similarity In the early history of ship canals.
Estimates not merely of the cost of
their construction, but of their revenue,
seem always lo be erroneous. None of
tlie three European waterways which
have been opened within tlie last few
years has yet fulfilled the expectations
of its promoters. It is sometimes said
tliat the Manchester ship canal cannot
hope for success such ns has come to
tlie Suez canal, because the one is, as
it were, a blind alley and the oilier a
thoroughfare, but the present position
of the Nortli sea and Bailie canal and
of the Corinth Canal does not beat- out
llie theory that a wnterwuy connecting two seas Is more likely to attract
shipping than one which gives access
to 11 great manufacturing center. Thc
Nortli sen canal wns used Inst year by
2,000,000 tons of shipping—about *yie-
third of tlie official estimate, while the
receipts were only about one-fourth.
Tlie tonnage was slightly less than thnt
carried on the Manchester canal and
the revenue of the latter was nearly
four times ns large. The Corinth canal,
of course, is u much smaller affair, both
111 size and cost. But It loo is struggling wilh financial difficulties, increasing ils capital account and piling up
arrears of unpaid interest. Lust year
It did a Utile better and, on actual
working, earned 11 profit of £2,372.
Greece nnd Germany mny, however,
console themselves by remembering tlie
small beginnings of the Suez canal,
whicli hnd been open for live years before li attracted an annual tonnage of
2,000,000 and wns condemned as a fall-

Sheep Shearing by Wholesale.
At Greut Fulls, Mont., which bus be-
come the largest wool shipping point
of thc Northwest, great dilliculty has
often been experienced In disposing
within a given time of tlie shearing of
large shipments of sheep, This difficulty lias now been amply met by tliu
use of electricity, 'l'he shearing sheds
nre adjacent to lhe terminus of the
street railway company's line, and the
trolley current has been utilized to
drive the Shearing machines. The Insinuation Is of the simplest possible
description. A street: railway motor

small pulley, which wns belled to the
uiiiin over-head slinft. So Utile power
wnsneededthnt two rheostats lnnl lo lie
put In tlie circuit lo keep the speed

The foreman of tlie shearers, afier
only live minutes' instruction, took full
charge of the niolor, giving it all the
necessary attention lu oiling, starting
and stopping. After tlie machines
were stinted tlie maintaining of a uniform speed was easy aud within half
an hour the twenty machines were ripping off the fleece at a rate whicli broke
tlie record. Tiie power was transmitted to tlie shears, whieh resembled
horse clippers iu their operation,
through universal joints. In three
weeks 10.1S4 sheep were sheared by the
oue motor, averaging nenrly 100 sheep
per day for each machine.—Pittsburg

eelved by Ibe bare, often not loo ciean,

bugs nre open nl both ends, nnd, being
slightly longer than the loaf, the ends
are turned together with a twist as the

ARE AGAINST US,
Recording to the information fur-
■ilshen by our special correspondent in
Ottawa, which will bo found in another
polumn, It will be i?cn that both Mr.
Maxwrll aud Mr. Mclnnes are opposed
to the Kettle (live, Valley railway and
Mr. Maxwell is opposed to any railway
tjieipg built iplb the BiiUWlary coun'ry
fhat does pot run from Vancouver. I'
vvill be remembered that it was through
(he influence of the coast members that
y,*c* difj not £ et a railway last year. It is
very provoking to find that coast people
appear to think that tbey own the
JSotindary country, and seem to take it
f„, granted ihnt the people of this district are to have no say in their own
ppmmunity or about tticjr own
matters. Tlie gratuitous insolence ol
Victniia and Yancouver passes all understanding. That thsy should have
the cheek to say and dictate what railway the lioundary countiy is to have is
ppreadins it on a trifle too thick, The
people of the B**utidary ccuntry i*ho,*ld
fesent this and f-ive these chatter mongers to understand that if we cannot
have what we s,.ai*i we wi" not itaV-i 'he
y. V. & Eastern railway. As a matter
pf fact, thc V. V. S; E. has i;ot one
pbance out of a million of being built
for the next live or ten years and therefore the opposition of Mr. Maxwell and
Mr. Mcinnes is a dog inthe manger busi-
pesB. It will be a sorry dny for Victoiia
and Vancouver if thoy get thc people of
the intutior thoroughly .rroused against
them, which such prutsedings will necessarily lead to.
At present tj;e merchants of the
Boundary country and Kcttl? River
/alley are purchasing the greater portion of tii*;u supplies Irom those cities,
i>ut it through the opposition of Mr.
Maxwell and Mr. Mclnnes, a charter is
pot given to the Kettle River Valley
■railway, tho whol-rsj-ie merchant,, of
t>oth Vancouver sfid Victoria will find
iheir orders will gradually decrease,
and it will only be a matter ol time until not a dollars worth of business will
go to them lyotii this country. Already
the Grand Forks board of trade is moving |u tbe matter ami will call upop, the
prospectors, ranch™,,, mining and business ~e.i of the district to back them
lip fn tot; movement. The <,ci,er,;p ;s tq
boycotte all goods purchased in Victoria or Vancouver. Thus bring such a
piossure to bear upon any merchant
*,vho will persist in buying ihere that, he
ivill ruin his business.
He who lau„'u,j last laughs best, and
it will only be'a matter of time before
*,he wholesale merchants of tbe coast
will find out were the lavjgh comes in.
Now thot both sides ol the muddle
have inbmitted th-.ir case to the legislation, it is to be hoped that tbat body
will solve tbe problem.
The indications are that "incle Sam"
»nd Spain will come together over tbe
Elaine disaster.
SETTLE IT AT THE POLLS,
Thc action of the town council in
pending City Cler]f. Wo'laston to Victoria in the interest of municipal legislation is giving the "calamity howlers''
an opportunity to breal: out in a fresh
p'.acq. While it is admitted by all that
action of some kind is needed, the difficulty seems to be in suggesting what
lines it ought to take. It seems almost
impossible as things now are,
for the opposing factions to come to an
amicable understanding and lhe cynly
practical way o,;tof ihe difficulty, seem;
to be through tbc ballot box. We can
;»ee no good reason now, since tlie electors cannot agiec an a council among
themselves, why they should not join in
a request to the attorney g.neral asking that another election L,c held or. the
lines provided (or in tbe measure pre-
pared by Solicitor Cayley, at the request
of the town council, and hive the present contcniir.ii settled to the entire satisfaction of all--bul the defeale;', candidates. This once done, in 1,-ss than je
days there will be nc more talk as to
yvho shall constitute the town council.
Tiiii memorial prepared by thc city
founcil to thc attorney general asking
that he recommend a measure providing for the continuance cf the present
pouncil in power for thc current year,
tras signed by ratepayers wbo own
three-fourths of tbe taxable property
jvithin the  municipal corporation.
From   present  indications   it  would
!eem that the time of the dominion pur-
tatnent would be mostly consumed during the present session in passing acts
refering to Klondyke schemes.

THE CHARTER IN DANGER
Messrs, Maxwell and   Mclnnes Opposed to the Kettle River Valley   Railway.
Ottawa, Ont, Feb. 18. i898.-[Spe-
cial Correspodence.]—Owing to the provincial elections of Ontario taking place
on the first of March, nearly all of the
members from that province bave left
Ottawa to take part in the election and
will not return until the 2nd or 3rd of
March; therefore, nothing will be done
v.-ith the private bill, granting to tbe
Kettle River Valley railway a charter,
before the railway committee until the
first or second week in March:
Mr. Maxwell, M. P., from Vancouver,
is violently opposed to tbe Kettle River
Valley railway, in fact, to any railway
into the Boundary country that does not
run from Vancouver. Mr. Mclnnes is
also opposed to it, and in order that tbis
charter shall be granted, ai you will understand, it will be necessary to hare
the undivided support of the B. C. mem.
bers in the House of Commons, so thut
we mutt have both Mr. Maxwell and
Mr. Mclnnes' support or at the very
least one of them.
Mr. Corbin and Mr. Bowell are here,
having just returned from Montreal.
The G. T R. bave promised their support in behalf of the K R. V. K.
Dick Armstrong, sent by the city of
Grand Fork to watch their interest here,
arrived this week, and is doing some
good work in behalf of the Boundary
country. He is chuck full of valuable
information concerning the vast mineral
wealth and resources of tbis district,
which only need transportation facilities
to place it in tbe front ranks of the gold
producing sections of the province
Mr. Armstrong has already had several
interviews with Messa, Maxwell and
Mclnnes relativejto meir opposition to
the K, R. V. R„ and informs me that he
has hopes of convincing them of their
error and that they will fall in line before the matter comes up for consider*
tion. Mr. Armstrong has already done
some valuable work among the members
of the railway committee from Ontanio,
who have promised to support the bill
when it comes up in the committee, and
unless the B. C. delegation do not attack Mr. Corbin unj istly he will secure
the charter. But there is a very strong
feeling heriS against the American government which has engendered a strong
sentiment against the whole American
people, and if the B. C. members wish
to be unscrupulous they can use this prejudice with the result of kiling the
charter.
Duncan Ross, tbe talented editor of
the Boundary Creek Times, who is here
i|) bpbajf of the interest of (Ireenwood
in the struggle for a railway into the
Boundary country, is stopping at tbe
Russell House. Mr. P.oss is a persistent worker, and being one of the re*
eognited leaders of the liberal party in
B. C, places him in touch with the government, which is a great lever a in measure of tbis character.
J. C, Haas is also here as a representative from Midway, and as he is without
doubt the best posted man in the Boundary country, relative to the mineral resources of the district and is a walking
encyclopaedia of the mines and their
possibilites, is proving a valuable acquisition to the Boundray creek delegation.
It will be a full month before the matter
is disposed of, and the situation at present is purely guess work.
Tie Klondyke fever is for this year
completely   overshadowding B, C, and
(hj| spssipn of parliament is being called
a    Klondyke   session   as   there    are
enough Klondyke charters and schemes |
to occupy parliament the' entire session,'
It now appears almost certain that (rom .
,rio,ooo t§ 100,003  people   will  go into
Klondyke.   It is estimated by parties
just returning from Dawson City tbat in
the neighborhood of $40,000,000 will be
taken out this year,   If half tbat sum
should prove correct why there will be
nothing heard of but Klondyke.
Mr. Bostock introduced a bill today
to incorporate the Kettle River Valley
railway company. It was read tbe first
time. He also presented tbe petition of
tbe Columbia & Western railway com*:
pany, signet) by Mr. Heinze as president, for a Dominion charter,"
Col. Redpatb, one ot the owners of
the Le Roi mine, bas received assurance that thc government wil) not impose an export duty. If anytbingis done
)t will apply only to nickel ore,
The government has sent out the chief
inspector of hulls to British Columbia to
arrange for a rigid inspection of steam?
boats,
It is almost a foregone conclusion that
po cash bonus will be given any railway
thii session, as the feeling here js very
strong against any legislation pf that
character.
Greenwood camp. On the first named
property these gentlemen are doing a
large amount of development work under the direction of D. K. Campbell,
wbo is interested with them in the property, and be expressed himself in re
than pleased with the showing being
made there. It is their in ention, he
says, to continue work on this piopoity
right along as they are satisfied tbey
bave in it a mine.
In speaking of the chances of the
Boundary district getting a railway this
season he said "that he considered tbem
good. Tbe firm of Mann, Mickonzie &
Co., who now own the charter of the
Victoria Vancouver it Eastern, was
making an application to tiie provincial
legislature for tbe cash bonus of $4,000a
mile offered by the government at its
last session, and in the event of their be-
in; successful tbe work of construction
would be commenced at once and within the next two years would be completed from Victoria to the Boundary
country. In case the provincial government failed to give them the bonus,
work would be commenced on this line
anyway next year at the furthest.
"At present their firm had a large
force of men at work building a snow
road from Glenora to Teslin for tbe purpose of getting in supplies, tools and
materiil for tbe construction 0! the Yukon railway which they bad now under
contract with the dominion government
to build tbis season. All of their grading outfit together with several car loads
of horses were now being forwarded to
the front as rapid as possible and be
thought by the first of April they would
be ready to begin construction work.
"As to whether or not the Kettle
River Valley railway would be grunted
a charter, be was not in a position tn say
but owing to the bitter feeling which
at present exists against the American
government on account of the attitude
that country bad taken in tbe Alaska
matter, it was a question of some doubt
if a charter would oe granted to an
American line of railway at this time.
"Mr. Mackenzie expressed much enthusiasm as to the future of this district
and says that its steadily increasing
business will within a very short time
justify the construction of a railway
through it."
W. B. Davey'5 Plans.
He Has Embarked in Business at Grand
Forks,
W. B. Davey, the contractor, arrived
yesterday from the coast after an extended absence. He brought with him
his wife and daughter, Miss Ethel. It
is his intention to locate permanently at
Grand Forks, He has bought out the
firm of Averill & Co. at Grand Forks
and all its real estate holdings. The
stock of .*■ oods and realty of the company
is valued at about $50,000. Jt is Mr.
Davey's intention t jsettle down at Grand
Forks aid to conduct a large mercantile
business there. It is his intention to
concentrate a'l his resources at Grand
Forks; with that idea in view, he visited
the coast and disposed of all his holdings that he could and the rem under
will be sold as soon as an advantagous
opportunity presents itself. While it is
his intention to devote most of his time
to the general merchandise business he
will not confine himself to tbat alone.
As he has amassed a fortune as a contractor he will continue to take large
contracts whenever he sees a good
chance. He has great faith in the
Boundary country, which he thinks will
have an era of prosperity just as soon as
it is given proper railway transportation
facilities.
Sp-yakmg of thc coast, he stated that
it was a sight to see the steamers leaving
the docks at the several seaport towns
for the north. They are overcrowded
with passengers, and all sons of craft
are being pressed into the service, and
the wonder is that more disasters have
not occured, although they are more
plentiful than they should be. The effect of tbe craze, however, is beneficial
to the several towns, as a great deal of
money.is being left in them by the
miners in transit to the north. "They
can go to Klondyke if they desire to,"
said Mr. Davey, "but as far as I am concerned the (Cootenry country is good
enough lor me."—Rossland Mine.
KNOCKED   SPEECHLESS.
Chas. Van Ness and Jim Reeder Have an
Accident.
Chas. Van Ness and Jim Reeder made
a trip to Summit camp on Thursday
for the purpose of starting a force of
men to i/pork on some property they own
in that camp. On the return trip they
met with an J accident that came near
proving fatal as far as Van was concerned. As they were coming down one of
the steep grades, one of the horses shied
and before Jim, who was driving, could
get him under control got over the
fide of tbe bank. As :,it was some distance to the toot of tbe gulch, Van concluded that he would rather run his
chance by jumping than remaining with
the rig, and jump he did. This adventure wpuld have proven successful if
Reeder hadn't happened to remember the
story of "Yump, Oie yump," and juit as
Van left tbe sleigh Jim left too. Unfortunately Jim jumped the same
way Van did and when hejlit it was with
both feet in Van's side, and weighing
somewhere in the neighborhood of 200
pounds, scored a complete knock out
blow, and it was several minutes before
Van cquld speak. Fortunately the team
stopped and no more strri us damage was
done than to deprive Van of his talking
powers for a few minutes. Van says it
is tbe first time in his life he could not
say "come boys take a drink," if be
wanted to.

The usual monotonous proceedings ol
the   city council were enlivened by a
good natured lilt between the mayor, A,
I., Manly and Alderman Davis at the
special meeting last Tuesday afternoon,
which while furnishing* amusement for
the audience aid not add to the dignity
usually observe;! by town council boards.
The object of calling a special session of the council, tho mayor stated,
was for the purpose of determining
whether or not it was adviscab!e to send a
1 representative to Victoria In the interest
of legislation, whereby another election
might be held, thus putting an end to
the present state of affairs, which was
already having a telling effect against tho
prosperity of tbe city on the outside. He
stated that to his personal knowledge he
knew of one deal, involving many thousand dollais, bad been declared off for no
other reason than Petor McCallum had
written to the bank at Rossland. for the
purpose of tying up the city funds and
getting the city "balled up" m a worse
shape than at present. There was another reason why this matter should be
settled at once, The time had arrived
for the city to establish a tax rate fer
I898, and if there was any question as to
the rights of the old council to do buis-
n -Bs, it should be remedial at once.
L. A. Manly thought there was no
question about the legality of lhe old
council, and was in favor of letting the
matter go by default and the old board
continuing in power,
Allerman Davis spoke in opposition
to the sending of a min to Victoria and
thought that the cheapest way out of the
scrape would be to telegraph Mr. Gra
ham, who had the matter in charge, to
defer action until he had byon communicated with by the city council.
The mayor expressed the opinion that
as the session was well under way, the
wiBest plan was to have someone on the
ground to hasten matters, but if the
council thought that the desirod object
could be accomplished by correspondence it was satislactory to him.
L. A. Manly agreed wiib tho mayor
regarding the sending of some one to
Victoria, but was in favor cf the present
c runci! coninuing in office, andthat the
attorney general be requested to have a
measure to tha: effect put through the
legislature.
This struck Alderman Davis as being
just about tbe right thing, but lie was not
in favor cf the cily being put to what he
considered an unnecessary expense, by
sending some person to Victoria, to do
what could be done by letter j 1st as well.
L. A. Manly—It would be cheaper to
send a man to Victoria than to have a
private bill enacted. He had had some
experience in tbat line, and kn;w what
he was talking about.
Mayor Manly—Peter McCallum, Hay
and his crowd had sent their p.-tition to
Donald Graham, also a telegram, requesting him not to move in the matter
until lho petition had reached him. Mr.
Hay had left that morning for Victoria,
and while there would use his influence
in behalf ot the petition, by representing tbat it expressed thp wish of thp
people of Grand Foiks, when in fact it
only had been signed by a lot of -'soreheads" who did not represent $10,000
worth of taxable property in the city.
Jeff Davis—I don't believe anything
qf the kind, Mr. Hay says pqsitiyely
that he will not interfere in the matter
one vyay or the other.
Mayor Manly—He is such a confounded old prevaricator that you cannot put
any reliance in what be says.
Jeff Davis—He is not tbe only liar in
town.
Mayor Manly—That's no "josh" either.
I confess that I am somewhat of a liar
myself, but for right down, low and under handed stretching of the truth Hay
takes the cake.
L. A. Manly—We are not here for
the purpose of deciding who is the biggest liar in town, but whether or not
to send some person to Victoria,
Jeff Davis—How much will it cost,
L. A,. Manly—About $150 ought to be
enough to lot some person—.
Here Al was interrupted by Alderman Oavis wbo intimated that he, Al
Manly, bad butter go as he had such fine
diamonds and so much money to "blow
L. A. Manly—Thos: diamonds art
n it rented, but paid tor, and there is
monoy iu the bank behind tbem and
don't you forget it.
W. K. C. Manly, who had been quietly enjoying the sarcasm which had
been flowing so freely, stated that when
this matter was first brought up at the
last meeting of the council, he was op
posed to it on the ground of the expense
to the city it would ipvolvo. For one, he
was not 111 favor ol the useless cxpoidi-
ture of city money, but, as the exs'.ing
cord tion of affairs was injuring the city
on the outside, and unless it was settled
at once, would keep capital away from
the place. He believed, the quickest
and cheapest way to have the matter
adjaste I would a,: to send some person
to V.ctoria and let him stay with the pro?
position until it wn* finally disposed of
o ne way or the other.
Jeff Davis—That would bc alright if
it was certain that he could have the
matter adjusted,
\ix 4. r^anly-rlt was a gujc tb(ng thai
the otherside would make a strong fight
to have matters adjusted in their favor,
and if they expected to ac co*rplish anything steps should be taken at once to
do so.
J. K. Joh*son, s'iding a little furlher
down in his chair, said if ihey were go-
10 do anything in the matter, ihey bad
better get at it.
Mayor Manly supges'ed lhat someone had better make a motion.
It was then moved by L. A Manly and
seconded by W. IC. C Manly that some
person be sent to Victori 1 for the purpose of securing legislation authorizing
tbe pre-: ent council to hold office the remainder of the year, and failing in that
to try ?nd have the bill prepared by the
city council, providing for a tew election passed, and the exp:nscs of such
person not to exceed $ir,o.
The motion being put by the mayor
was carried, J, K Johnson, A. L. and W.
K. C. Manly voting for and Jeff Davis
against.
The question of who should go was
the next protlem lo solve.
The mayor asked Jeff ii he had anyone
of suggest. Mr. Davis replied that he
was opposed to sending anyone, therefore had no choice in th; matter
W. K. C, Manly movyd that Mr. Davis
bo sent.
This motion receiving no second, L.
A Manly suggested lhat either the
mayor or the city clerk would be the
proper person to go.
The mayor s-.aied that iu thr; first pla ce
it would be in bad taste for him to
go, and in the second place that ho had

wbich demanded his attention, therefore
as far as he w.is concerned it was out ol
the question. As Mr, Wollaston was

Seriously Hurt at thc B. C.   Mine.
Last Saturday morning an employe at
the IJ. C. mine nearly met death by tie
falling of a piece tf timber, which
dropped over one hundred feet upon
the unfortunate man striking him on the
back and side.
Dr. Jakes Jof Greenwood, vas immediately summoned, and on examination I mcnt tbe pio
found that at least one rib:ivas-ftirokcn
besides other external injuries. There
is no doubt lhat the timber in falling
r'own the shaft must have had its fall
broken before it struck its victim or it
would doubtless have killed j;im instantly. 	
"In the first place, the obj;:t of my
visit to tbe coast at this lime, is to look
after my private interests in Vancouver. Alter tbat is cared for I intend to run over to Victoria for a few
days and while there wiil press upon
the government the necessity of a railway being built into the lioundary
country, and unless one is bu'lt the present season, that it will mean ruination
to a majority of the present lu.idents of
the district who have spe.it their capital and energy in dyveloping and open*
r.g of the vast wealth of th s section
vhich, with adequate transportation facilities is certain to become one of tbe
greatest gold producing sections of the
province, but without, it the mineral resources of the district will be compelled
o lay dormant until such time as transportation facilities arc provided.
"With this in view I intend to try
and have the provincial government to
endorse tbe granting of a charter to
the Kettle River Valley railway, and
will urge upon them the fol!y ol giving
a bonus to any railway unless construction is commenced at once.

Hence lhe need nf discrimination on
the pari of those who engage iu either
oi these pleasing but unprofitable avocations, especially in Hie case of those
whose characteristics an- iu process nf
formation. The rector of Uu- Universl- |
ly or Vienna, al least, seems lo be duly
impressed wiih ihe Importance .•*' regulating even lounging, ns shown in the
following edict recently published for
ihe benefit of ihe students in ihe An--
ninn capital: "For the university year
of 1807 S the bummel, or lounging, will
be sanctioned under the following conditions: It must be practiced ou Sat- j
ill-days only and between the hours of
11 aud 12 a. in., in the Areadenhof. For ;
changing the hour or prolonging the
period of the aforesaid lounging a spe-
clal permission must be obtained from j
ihe rector. Students not attached to ]
the university are not allowed to par- !
llclpate in it. This permission Is grant-
ed on the understanding that nil corporations of students taking part 111 the |
snine shall avoid any action tending to
create n disturbance or cause annoyance in public places." To suppose that
the lounger, whether student or otherwise, would engage In aellons tending
lo disturbance or annoyance lu public
places would be to do violence to the
time-honored traditions of lounging.
Tlie students, however, may be supposed to be only amateurs In this elegant art and the rector of the University of Vienna is wise, therefore, in
guarding against tbe first approaches
toward loafing. But to lounge by rule
nnd on one specified hour of the week-
thai must be a peculiarly Austrian notion.
A writer iu tbo Arena makes the venerable Lafayette say In 1828, from the
balcony of nu old house, still standing
nt ihe corner of Park nnd Beacon
streets, In Boston, "Where are your
poor? Where are your poor? Iu this
assembly 1 see them not. Why have
Ihey uot come nlso'.'" Then some one
In the crowd replied, "We are all here,
rich and poor together." But with true
French gallantry the venerable Frenchman responded: "No; the poor are not
here. They are not anywhere In America. They arc In Europe." Upon the
basis of this little scene the writer remarks: "And that makes the difference
between an assembly of free men iu
1825 and an assembly of Inchoate paupers iu 1807." In ii native li'.be of barbarians there nre no poor and no rich.
In tho tribal stage of civilization members of the tribe nil share alike—hence
Ihere Is no poverty. But it does not
quite follow Hint this is the most desirable condition of existence. There are
very few men living who can remember
how nn average crowd on ihe streets of
Boston looked in 1825. That they looked better fed, heller dressed, or carried
more change In their pockets, few believe. Thnt there was more equality
is'ilue partly to the more elementary
character of trade r.nd Industry. It Is
always so, from the original Irlbe up
to the most complex civilization. But
it Is these complex conditions that call
out the displays of philanthropy tbat
wc see on Thanksgiving day nnd lu the
holiday season. Iu saying that there
were no poor lu Boslon in 1825 (If he
said iu, Lafayette was bound to be
polite, but we nil know better. Inequality increases ns society advances
from the elementary to the complex.
And so does philanthropy. But because of this are we prepared to return
lo the original tribal condition? Hardly. It is iii the effort to remove inequality and ameliorate Its effects that
should engage every good citizen, that
the whole moral nature of the community Is advanced with the increase
of its material wealth.

Dolly is lhe most maddening, tantalizing, perverse and charming—-I
might as well admit It; you'd soon have
found It out—young woman of my acquaintance. I've been lu love with her
for five years, and It's a wonder my
hair isn't while; sometimes 1 think It
Is turning gray: but when I spoke to
Dolly about It she said 1 was not to
bother; 1 was old enough to be gray,
anyway. Ahl that's where Dolly hurts,
nnd she knows It; for I am fifteen
years older tlinn she Is, and when that
willful young woman wishes to be particularly cruel she treats me with respect.
1 know Hint among my friends I am
considered lo have fairly good sense;
1 can talk rationally ou most subjects,
nnd 1 stand well enough in my profession, at least emtbling me to keep my
head above water. But when I'm with
Dolly, or In her presence, I'm an ass, a
driveling, foolish nss. A lunatic from
nn asylum would be a brilliant conversationalist compared to me. And,
nlns! Dolly knows that, too, and she
torments me nnd makes life an unutterable burden to me, I start to make
a sensible remark, when suddenly 1
meet Dolly's eye; then 1 stumble nnd
say the wrong thing, and she will remark, "Do you really think that?" with
Btich a wicked look lu her beautiful
blue eyes, while l dou't think at all,
but have just snld It. And so It goes
on until I wonder sometimes If I am
quite right. When we go to dances—I
sny we, for I'm always there if I know
she is going—things are a little worse
than usual, for Dolly dances past mo
witli cads of men, and I stand about the
wall watching her. She never will give
but two dances to me, so I have nothing to do iu the meantime but watch
her.
One night I was desperate. I hnd
sent her violets ns usual—she Is particularly fond of them, and most of my
money goes that way. Sometimes she
wears thera. nnd often carries them,
but this ulght they were nowhere to be
Been, nnd ln her hand was one large
red rose. I went up to her; appearing
to be sorry to see me was the particular form of torture whicli commended
Itself to her on this especial night.
"You here!" she snld, lifting her eyebrows Iu astonishment nnd without u
smile; nil put on, of course, because I
a in always where she Is.
"O, no, I'm not here; I'm somewhere
else," I snid, wittily.
She laughed Immodern(ely.
"You're-so—funny," she remarked,
choking.
"Yes," snld I, severely, "I suppose I
am funny, very funny. But where are
my violets?*'
"Why, had you—any—violets?" snid
she. "I didn't know-how should I
know?" She snld II seriously, but
there wns a look In bet' eyes that I wns
used to; I'd have liked to shake her.
"Dolly, you know exactly wnat 1
mean; where are my violets?"
"If yon iiicnn the vlolels you sent
me," she replied, with dignity, "I understood that after Ihey left you Ihey
belonged to me; do yon want them
back?"   This I'reezlngly.
"Oh, Dolly," I said, reduced once
more to my usual condition of nslnlulty,
"I didn't meiiii It, dear; 1 don't want
the d—1 beg your pardon; of course, I
don't wunt them; 1 only wanted you lo
wear them or carry thein, yon know,
darling."
Bul she saw thnt she had the best of
me, so she carried things with a high
hand.
"The rose was sent me hy n friend"—
she hesitated—"aud 1 suppose I have a
right to went- whnt I please. But sit
dowu; don't stand so long; you'll be
tired!" This wns nn allusion to my
age. nud 11 maddened me.
"You are exceedingly Hide!" I said,
turning nwny and leaving her.
It wns the most severe speech I hnd
ever made lo Dolly, and I suffered at
the thought of It. For four days I
dldu't go near her or send her violets
onco. It wns nu nwful four days; I
neither slept nor ate, but juat reviled
myself ns a fool for becoming estrang-
er from the only woman In the world,
ln my despair 1 even went so fnr as to
take Jane Hunt to a dance where Dolly
was sure to see ns, and she did. And
when I passed her she looked over my
bend wllh her small nose In the air;
1 wished Miss Hunt was ln—well,
somewhere else—that I might rush over
to Dolly, throw myself at hot- feet—
and kiss them! Yes. 1 acknowledge
that I have often wished that.
Finally I wrote her, fully conscious
tbat It was a very silly loiter, wherein
1 told her I was nearly angry at myself for not knowing she cared for red
roses, and I sent three dozen. Thc answer I received was characteristic:
"You are a silly old goose, and if you
bad only waited until 1 finished what I
was saying you would have discovered
lhat you sent the rose yourself with
the violets. 1 don't care at all for red
roses."
By which token I learned, uot that
Dolly was repentant, but that her violets had faded, and she wanted more.
So 1 sent tbem, hundreds of them,
hoping that willful and fascinntiug
youug woman would be appeased.
But the greatest of my misfortunes
hns not yet been set down. There wns
iiuother youug mnu, uu acquaintance
and admirer of Dolly's, with exactly
the same uuiiie as myself—Hlehard
Morton. I, of course, hud tukeu u
huge dislike to hlm; lu fact, I hated
hlm (for Dolly once remarked that he
was a nice fellow), und I don't think
be had un extraordinary affection for
me. We were uot related; I wus glad
Of that. A few days after I hud been
such a cad lo Dolly 1 culled upon her,
and, heaven favoring me, 1 found her
alone.
"Dolly, dearest," 1 began; "I am so
sorry "
"Don't," she suid; "that Incident is
closed. There are so many ulcer things
to talk about. Jane Hunt, for instance."
I shivered; I was about to be punished.
"Is she nicer?" said I.
"What do you really think of her?"
said Dolly, with rather nn anxious look,
1 thought; but, of course, 1 wns mistaken.
"O, she's a very good girl, very
good," with a desperate desire to make
Dolly jealous If I could, which I
couldn't.
"Is she?" Dolly tossed her head.
"Well, Mr, Morton, do you want to
know what I think she looks like?"
The "Mr. Morton" was ominous; I
shivered ngnln,
"I c-nn't Imagine," snld I, lightly,
thinking how very pretty Dolly was
with that pink spot In ench cheek.
"I think she looks like a cook!" she
declared, triumphantly, while 1, inwardly agreeing, protested.
"O, Dolly, a cook!"
"Yes," she went on spitefully, "and
not even like a good cook!"
"Dolly!   Not like a bad cook?"
"Yes," she went ou, like a very poor
eook!"
I wns obliged to laugh; I couldn't
help it.
"Splendid wife she'd make!" said I,
not meaning to rouse Dolly.
But suddenly she turned and said the
most terrible thing to me that she'd
ever said since I'd known her.
"Then you'd tetter marry her!" This
from Dolly!
"O!" I began, but she was gone, and
there was nothing for me to do but to
pick up my hat and go, whieh 1 did,
calling myself a beast nnd a brute as
1 weut.
That night when leaving the theater
we happened to meet a moment. She
was radiant and scornful.
"Dolly," I snld, resolving not to notice the contretemps of the afternoon,
"with whom are you going to dance
the cotillon at the Terry's to-morrow
night?"
"With Mr. Morton," she answered,
sweetly.
"Whnt a denr you are! 1 wns afraid
you'd promise somebody else."
Aud then she laughed.
"With the pleasant, agreeable Mr.
Morton," she continued, "who never
snys the wrong thing."
And theu I knew she meant the other
one! I'm afraid I snld a bad word;
her mocking laugh followed me in the
darkness, and echoed lu my dreams
that night. I wished 1 had never seen
her—and took It bnck Immediately.
I debated a long time wlthlu myself
whether or not I should go to the Ter-
rys', but, as usual, ended by going. I
could dunce stag nnd take Dolly out,
and—lovely Idea—perhaps she would
take me out! Then as I thought of the
way I had left her the night before
this beautiful hope faded. Whnt would
she want with a brute like me?
1 never saw her look better than that
night at the Terrys' dnnee; she was lu
white, whicli best became her, and she
seemed to me like an angel. And Hint
fellow Morton looked pretty well, too,
I had to admit to myself that he was
rather a well-appearing chap.
Sirs. Floyd-Hopkins, who aspires to
be something of a belle herself, slood
for a moment and followed the direction of my glance.
"Miss Dalrymple Is looking particularly well this evening," she said—a
very gracious speech, Indeed, for her.
"Very!" 1 replied, Inning Bcnse
enough left not to discuss Dolly with a
woman,
"But whnt uu awful flirt!" she went
ou. This left me gasping. "And engaged, I understand, to Mr. Morion nil
lho time."
"Who snld It?" I asked, hoarsely.
Dolly engaged—and to that—cad—with
my name.
"Oh, everybody snys so," and then
she looked at me with such nn unpleasant smile. "That's your name, too,
Isn't It?"
"Yes, 1 believe It Is," I snld, brilliantly, moving away from her.
Dolly engaged! I couldn't grasp the
full significance of It; the thought left
me dazed and bewildered. This very
night should decide It. I would go to
her and ask If there were nny truth lu
It. Just then she camo toward me as
If she were gol-g to take me out, but
something ln my face must have stopped her.
"Whnt Is the matter?' she asked,
turning a little white.
"Dolly," 1 suid, sternly, "will you give
me the first two dunces utter supper?"
"Of course, If yon wunt them; but
won't you dance now?" I never saw
Dolly so meek hefore.
"No," I answered, almost roughly,
"not uow." She left me with a strange
look on her sweet face.
It seemed centuries until supper; I
tried to think of what I slwuld Bay to
her, but my mind was in such a chaotic state that I decided to depend on
tbe inspiration of the moment.  ..
At last supper was over, and I found
her, tucked her arm in mine, aud
marching off to a quiet nook, put her
lu the only seat, and stood accusingly
before her.
•Dolly," I began, "look nt me!" This
she did, a little timidly, 1 thought, and
1 almost forgot what I was going to
say In the joy of looking at her.
"My darling," 1 went on, "I hnve
loved you so long, so well, and hoped
Hint iu lhe course of years you might
come lo care"—she dropped her eyes;
just then I remembered tbat horrible
gossip—"biit to-night, Dolly, I heard
something that turned my hi art to
stone."
"What was It?" she asked.
"Thnt you were engaged to "
"Who?" breathlessly,
"Morton," I gasped; "that wretched,
caddish—"
"Stop!" she said, with dignity.
"Tell me—you shall!" i grasped her
wrists.   Is It so?"
If it had been any woman In the
world but Dolly I should have said she
was embarrassed. She actually blushed.
"No," she said, slowly; "it Is not so;
but " Her hands went up and covered her fnce. Heaven! suppose she
should cry!
"But what?" I Insisted, cruelly;
"you're not engaged lo hlm, but you're
In love with lnm?" She look her bunds
nway, and her face was very red; If It
hnd not been such a serious moment I
should have said she had been laughing.
• Mr. Morton has—never- asked mc to
be his—wife; If he does-l simll—"
I was beside myself.
"And If lie does?" 1 hissed.
"I shall say yes"—very softly. A terrible silence ensued; the earth wus
sinking beneath my feet.
"You love lliis Mr. Morton'/" I asked,
sharply.
And then the very queerest thing in
the world happened. Dolly's face
whitened n little us she rose and put
out her hand.
"Yes, you old goose," slip snld, "I
love this Mr. Morion."
It didn't take me long to gather
Dolly into my arms. Tlie next live
minutes are not to appear lu this narrative,
"Dolly," snld I. blissfully, "did you
ever know such a stupid old fool as I
am?"
"Never in all my life," snld lhe sweetest of girls, her voice coining froni llie
vicinity of my coat collar.
"And do you suppose Hint woman
meant me when she told me that gossip, my darling?"
"Of course she—did," said the voice,
"and I'm glad she snld It: I don't believe you'll ever have asked otherwise."
My answer would not look well on
paper. ,
"Do yon know, Dick, that you never
hnve asked me before?"
And wheu I came to think of It I
never had.—"Tho Folks at Home."

"Mr. Grlnsmlth," began tbe landlady,
Icily, addressing the humorous boarder,
"1 very much dislike to sny anything

"Oh, don't mind me, Mrs. Hashover!"
Interrupted the young man, cheerily.
"I have been boarding for four years,
and my feelings ure entirely ossified."

my boarders as long as I can, but "
"I don't know that you really keep
'em any longer thnn common people,"
again Interjected Qrlnsmith, "but you
keep 'em so thin tbat tbey certainly
look longer."
"That will do, Mr. Grlnsmlth!" answered Mrs. Hashover, sternly. "What
1 was about to say was that It Is my
wish to preserve amicable relations
with all my Boarders, but there ls a
point where forbearance censes to be
a virtue. I have endured in silence
your alleged witticisms on tho viands
and listened to them more In sorrow
than In anger, but there Is nn end to all

A Chapter of Russian History.
Here ls 11 Utile bit of Russian history
tliat Is not told in the school books nnd
Is not generally known. When Catherine II. met her husband. Peter III.,
for the first time ills ugliness caused
her to fnlut. It was only her ambition to become czarina that enabled her
to go through with the wedding ceremony. Tlie terrible consequences were
inevitable. Catherine forced Teter to
aHlleate in her favor, nfter which she
murdered him. But before these events
had taken place Catherine had takeu
up with Count Soltlkoff, who wns
doubtless the father of Catherine's son
Paul, who succeeded to the throne,
only to be assassinated a few years
later. 	
When a man is a loafer, he ls put on
the rock pile; when a woman is a
loafer, she is put lu society.
