, At length the session of tbe Dominion Parliament has closed and with it
the Parliament itself comes to ,,n end
This Parliament will always be re
membered, both on account of its exceptional longth, and from the number
of unusual incidents whicli have occurred during the period of its existence. Itis scarcely probable that it
will ever happen again that with one
party iii power throughout the entire
Parliament, it should be led by no less
than four Premiers, Sou reel v had lint
House met than it was realised that
the life work of its leader, Sir John A.
Macdouald, was well nigh done.
Scarcely live years have elapsed since
those bright June days, when the
tho ights of all Canadians were turned
to Ottawa, and from the Atlantic to
the Pacific men were anxiously watching for the reports from the sick room
in Irl irnsclilC') and hoping against hope
that the ''Old Chieftau" might still be
spared to tbem. Antl when at last on
that Saturday evening the word came
��� ������He is dead"-the people could
scarcely realise that it was true and
that, the familiar face ami ligure would
never moro be seen iu tlie old haunts.
But uu one then could have imagined
what havoc deatlt was to work ill the
ranks of tlie members of that Parliament, and hoc before it came to a
close two other successors of Sir John
were also to pass away, and another
ol bis old colleagues, in tbe last hours
of ils last session, should signify that.

their being.
A writer in the Washington I'ost
says: "Alaska is easily entitled to
the blue ribbon for having the meanest
eliinate iii creation." In winter the
thermometer sinks to (iO below zero.
In summer it is as hot as the equator,
the mercury climbing to 100, The
journey from Sitka is made by wagon
or on foot, 100 miles, to the Yukon
region. Here tlie travellers are still
25 miles from tbo gold mines. They
must cut down (reus and build rude
rafts to float them down the river to
ivitnnapplb tbo diggings, The gold is found in
creeks and streams.
The trip can scarcely be made at all
in winter by white men. But so soon
as the suns rays melt the snow and ice
in spring there come millions upon
millions of mosquitoes, midges und tho
worst insect pests known to man. The
writer in the Post says they sometimes
drive men insane. All the same, we
shall subdue these obstacles. We
shall build a railway which shall do
away with the terrible wagon journey
over the divide. Aa to mosquitoes, it
has been found that a plentiful sprinkling of kerosene will not only drive
tbem away, but kill them.
The somewhat, peculiar natno of the
society is explained by the fact that it
was adopted at a time when the severance into sects and classes was so wide
that persons aiming at social union
and mutual help wero a marked exception to the general rule. Traces of the
recorded business of the society can be
found for 151 years back.
Our gathering hero to-night is, as I
have suid, for tlie purpose of celebrating the 77th anniversary of the introduction ami establishment of the order
iu the new world, where the principles
of our society have spread with such
rapidity that it now rivals in membership and influence tlie great I'rateimil
orders   in   tliu world.    In a few mure
world, of one so wide and powerful in
its influence for all that is good and
noble, may well therefore be publicly
and duly celebrated in this enlightened
19th century. It is, alas, almost a
fruitless task for ine to-night to attempt to represent the blessings that
havo been reaped by brothers of the
mystic tie in the days of adversity and
tribulation during the past 77 years.

"What mean ye by this Service." ���
Ex. 12cli., 2(i verse.
It is quite evident that God desires
that all who acknowledge him should
also be intelligent worshippers. He is
not satisfied with tlie mere prostrate
form, or with stupid solemnity and
awe. He asks that his people should
adore Hiin, and also thut they should
understand what they are doing whenever tbey come into His presence.
Therefore, when through the great
lawgiver, Moses, He gave dirtCtions
concerning the annual observance of
tbe great Jewish festival. He hilly
expected that the curiosity of tlie
young anil the uninitiated would be
aroused, and He made provision for
this laudable and intelligent curiosity
to be gratilied. He arranged that
their interest should he a wakened by a
pictorial drama enacted before tliein.
Tne whole family was to gather annually around the family altar, und
thore circumstances occurred whicli
st l'l'cd up the mind of the onlookers to
enquire of those conversant with the
mystic rites and ceremonies: "What
mean yo by this service?"
In replv to such a question some
aged and respected member of each
Hebrew family would then recite tlie
history ol that proud time, when
Egypt wiih all its attendant hardships
and miseries was left behind and the
Hebrew nation went forth free under
the protection of their God. It wus
indeed a night much to be observed
unto the Lord.
You, my brothers of tliu Independent
tinier of Oddfellows, who aro gathered
hero to-night to celebrate tho 77th
anniversary of the inception of Odd-
fellowsltip in America are simply conforming thereby to uu ancient, laudable and pious custom. We come as a
fraternal body, whose organization is
fast  enveloping  this globe, to bow to-
when the wonderful adaptation to tlte
wants of mankind which tbe Order of
Oddfcllowship has acquired is mure
generally known, there will be no reason for any sensible mini to ask lhe
question of my text to-night, concern-
any of its future commemorative
.services, "What mean ye by this
The   words   of the following hymn
must, I   think, fittingly   express   the
feelings   of   every true brother of our
blessed order here to-night:
O praise our God to-day,
His constant mercy bless,
Whose love hath helped us ou our way
And grunted us success,
0 happiest work below,
Earnest of joy above,
To sweeten many a cup of woe,
By deeds of holy love.
I said wlien commencing my sermon
to-night, that God desires all who enters His courts to render Him intelligent service and worship. For the
furtherance of such au end in connec-
t on with our special meeting tonight
1 would here state briefly some of the
great duties of that order whose 77th
anniversary is being appropriately observed by prayer and praise tu '.hat
God under whose guidance and govern
atice till things exist. That apostle
who in lho most beautiful and forcible
muniier taught the world that most
impottant lesson of fraternity, namely,
that all men are of one family uud
that God as revealed to us in His Son
Jesus Christ is our common Father.
That same apostle has given Christian
communities wherever they exist the
following commandment for their observance : "Bear yo one another's
burdens, and so fulfil the law of
In our secret endeavor as a society
to fulfil as far as iu us lies that great
est oft all commandments, we have imposed upon our members, for the improvement and exaltation of their
character the following five Christian
duties so prominently taught in holy
scriptures, namely :
To visit the sick.
To relievo the distressed.
To bury tlie dead.
To educate the orphan.
To aid the widow.
The time was when a largo majority
of people looked with suspicion and
listriist upon all secret societies. They
could not believo that any secret order
could be entirely allied with purity
and innocence. And yet such people
had only to look around ut the material world which surrounded tliein, and
think of that Col whom they professed
men, who are well worthy of the sacred
trust committed to th dr charge ���a
trust which even grim death cannot
dissolve. Ah, who amongst us tonight can presume to tell of the want,
destitution and misery that bus been
averted from thousandsupoii thousands
of homes since ihe introduction of our
fraternal benevolent society, Who
-hull tell us to-night of the tears that
have been wiped away and dried, or of
tho comforts that have come to many
tl widowed and orphaned home through
the secret but bounteous channel of
our mystic order. Could we but see
the widow on bended knee, pouring
out heartfelt gratitude to God as the
claims of our brotherhood descended
to her fatherless children, then might
we be duly impressed witli the far-
reaching influence for good io mankind
which Oddfcllowship has attained.
Such a sight would in itself call forth
tbe coininemoration,praise and thanksgiving from even thosu who are unacquainted with tlio solemn and sublime truths taught within tiie ii" er

Editor Goi.liEN Kit a r
Dear Sir. Iii your issue of April
4th, there is a very interestinu article
by Mr. Leake on the Vermont Creek
bismuth ore.
Last summer at the request of a
gentleman who was likely to acquire
an interest in tlie property, I made a
series of experiments on this ore. The
lesult of several assays showed the
percentage of bismuth to vary Irom 25
per cent to 0 per cent. Iu only one
instance did I fail to find bismuth
though in several others the percentage
was very small.
These determinations were made
from fairly large quantities of ore carefully sampled-the wet method being
use* and the bismuth estimated as the
lu tuy opinion the mineral iu question is Jatnesonite. The aiitydious
sulphide of lend and antimony having the formula 2Sb-S'' + 'lPliS and the
specific gravity 5.5, this contains in
mechanical admixture the sulphide of
bismuth - bisinutlieuite, whicli has a
specific gravity of 15.6. Thedillcrei.ee
of these specific gravities would militate agaitt.-t the true hamogeny of the
mass of mineral, and would, I think
account for the variation in the percentage ol bismuth in the ore.
I next turned my attention to the
profitable extraction of the bismuth
from this combination, but circumstances prevented n.e from proceeding
as fur in this matter as I should have
In one case I succeeded in extracting
bismuth in the pure state, but ou estimating the cost of plant and working
expenses lor this process, I found they
would be prohibitive and so was
obliged to abandon the method.
This ore has, I understand, been
submitted to various experts iu England, Germany ami America with a
view of finding a suitable process for
reducing the bismuth but without
It is to be hoped, now Mr. Leake
has taken up the subject, that tlie
matter will attract tbe attention of the
metallurgists of this province and
some fresh light bethrown out iie much
vexed question of what is locally
known as the "conundrum ore."
Believe me, Sir,
Yours faithfully,
W. .1. Hdoke CoWGIjIj.
