The home of Mr. and Mrs. D. J.'
McDonald, on Tuesday morning, was
the scene of the very interesting ceremony which united in the holy bonds
of matrimony two of Goldon's most
popular young people, Miss Florence'
McDonald, second daughter of Mr.
Angus McDonald, Lindsay, Ont., and '
Mr. Michael B. Carlin ; Rev. Father
Petuvion, of Kamloops, officiated. At
10 n.m. the groom, supported by Master
Harold McDonald, entered aud took
their places, followed a few minutes
later by thc bride, accompanied by her
neioe, Miss May McDonald, as bridesmaid. The bride, who was given
away by her brother, Mr. D. J. McDonald, wore a handsome travelling
dross of seal brown goat hail- cloth,
trimmed with satin and real lace.
She carried a beautiful boquet ol
roses and ferns. Miss May
McDonald wore cream silk and carried
n botiuet. After the ceremony a wedding breakfast was served at which
only the most intimate friends of the
bride and groom were present. The
sterling qualities of the groom and his
charming bride have won them a very
wide circle of friends, who testified
their appreciation in tangible form, in
the lovely and costly presents sent the
bride, many of tbem from the east.
The  happy couple left on No. 2 for
Winnipeg, Toronto, and other eastern
cities, followed by the good wishes of
their many friends in Golden.
In addition to " Betsy's " remarks
wo might say that the town turned
out en masse to witness the departure
of the newly wedded couple for the
eust. As the train pulled out a royal
salute Was given them, the discharging of fire arms, fire crackers, etc.,
and the whistling of the passenger
and work train engines, must ctrtainly
have struck terror into the hearts of
the passengers on the express, who no
doubt thought their time had come.
The Eua joins in congratulations.
There is an old saying that "One
wedding makes many,'' and Dame
Rumor has it that several more will
take place shortly.
Another happy wedding was solemnized on Friday, May iilst, at the
residence of Rev. E. D. McLaren,
Vancouver, B.C., when R. D. Da vies,
the popular manager of the C.P.R.,
telegraphs at Donald, and Miss Kate
Knowdell, daughter of C. V. Knowdell,
Vancouver, were pronounced man and
wife. The newly wedded couple left
for Victoria on their honey moon trip,
they will spend a few days in Vancouver and Kamloops before returning
to their future home. The Era joins
in tendering congratulations.

It i-r ritinored that the Canadian Pacific has withdrawn its objection to
tbe British Columbia .Southern building k road through Crow's Nest pass,
and that one of the directors of the
Liter company is now in New York
negotiating with a syndicate to build
the road. The British Columbia
Southern has already been voted the
Dominion subsidy of S3200 a mile for
thirty-two miles, and it is not improbable that tbe roud will get the subsidy
for its entire length. The charter
calls for a road from the eastern boundary of British Columbia, to a suitable
terminus on Burrard inlet, to be built
in three sections. The eastern section
ends at Kootenay river, in East Kootenay ; tbe centre section at a point on
Kootenay lake, probably Pilot Bay;
the western section at any point, on
Burrard inlet. Tho eastern section
must be constructed and equipped by
December 31st, 181)11, tho central section, by December 31st, 1897; and the
western section by December 31st,
1898. Connection will be made at tho
eastern end with an extension of the
Lethbridge brunch of tho Canadian
Pacific, which is already graded for
about fifiy miles west of Macleod. At

Dan-ran to Young Men.
Somo residents of cultured Boston
who are woll on in years and who
have wenthcrod the storms of adversity
nnd temptation recently expressed their
views on tho dangers which most
threaten tho young man of to-day.
Mr. Seth Bryant, u well-known merchant, who has reached tbe venerable
ago of 95, snys that tho greatest of
these evils is tho lack of a desire for
accumulation. Tbe yonng mnn of today in passing a store with 95 in his
pocket is possessed of a consuming
desire to spend it thnt very moment.
However small bis earnings be should
lay up something, nnd always have a
little money on hand. This rule observed in his own case has led to for-
tuno and Independence.
Hon. Soth J. Thomas, tho Nestor of
tho Boston bar, says that tho greatest
peril of tho yonng man of the present
is a tendency to spend too much money
Horo ho only imitates tho vicious example sot by olditr men. If a young
mnn with nn income t.f SI,000 spends
$2,000, ho is in a bad wny, which if
persisted in will constantly lend troui
bad to worso. He is living at somebody else's loss nnd expense, and is
neither honest with himself nor with
others. Ho has to resort to all sorts
of shifts and contrivancies, borrowing
first of Peter to pay Paul, and then of
Paul lo pay Peter. His life is a falsehood. Another great fault of our
young men is a rudeness, a coarseness
of manners, a lack of civility to and
opportunities for all kindly and elegant
culture, it should be corrected.
Joseph A. Willard, of tbo Supremo
court believes that the majority of
yonng men are too eager for pleasure;
that duty and an earnest purpose
occupy only a secondary place in their
thoughts. Another danger is their
thirst for a position obtained through
wealth rather than through education
and adherence to principle.
John L. Baker, harbor commissioner
regards as the greatest evil threatening
young men to-day tbo increasing tendency to a freo uso of intoxicants -a
tendency that brings evils vast and
many in its train.
Hon. (Jeciiio Curtis is of tho same
opinion. Ho says that there never
bus lieen u time when the liquor habit
had greater power to ruin young lives
than the present. Ho believes that in
every young man who frequents the
saloons, and in tbem or elsewhere takes
into bis stomach an enemy that steals
away bis bruins, thero is n potential
robber, murderer, or other criminal.
He thinks that in the intoxicants of
to-day and the methods cf drinking
tbem there is something which renders
young men incapable lor controlling
their evil passions.
George F. Angell, president of the
S.P.C.A., believes that one great evil
which today threatens our young
men is an increasing disregard for the
gentler sentimemts of humanity. This
is seeu in tho barbarity of athletic
contests, especially those of our school
and colleges, which develop tho savage
when if rightly conducted they would
keep it in subjection. It also has
many other manifestations. But the
modern spirit upon the whole is reformatory and humanitarian. Let onr
young men imbibe higher planes of
thinking and living.

Jeddah, .May SI.���Tho following
particulars have lieen obtained of the
assassination of the British vice-consul
here and the wounding of other foreign consular officers yesterday. Mr.
W,. S. Richardson, British consul and
M. Dorville, secretary of the French
consulate, were taking a walk together
near this town, when apparently without any provocation they were assailed
by eight Bedouin Arabs. The British
vice-consul was so badly wounded
that he expired ten minutes after. Mr
Richardson was badly wounded. Mr-
Brandt's jaw was broken and his nose
cut away. Dorville alone escaped
serious injurv. The recovery of Messrs
Richardson and Brandt is doubtful.
Fifteen arrests have beon mado, and
thu greatest excitement prevails here,
which is intensified by the fact that
several British warships are expected
at this port shortly, in order to inquire
into thc outrage and insist on the
punishment of the offenders.
Constantinople, May 31.���Three
British war ships have lieen ordered to
Ji.'ihliih with instructions to protect
the lives of foreigners and investigate
tho killing of tho British vice consul
and wounding of other consular officer
Later reports from physicians in nt-
teudnnco on tho wounded officers show
that Dorville was more seriously
wounded than at first expected and it
is feared he also will tlio from tho
result ol his injuries.

tri.llii.it Disaster.
San Francisco, Juno 1.���The forebodings ot the friends of the passengers
and crew ol I ho Colimn are exceedingly
gloomy und few cherish any hopo of
the survival of thoso hitherto unaccounted for, and tlio Pacific Mail
company declares that it had received
absolutely no word from tho scene ot
the disaster. The latest news received
here up to 5 o'clock yesterday was
contained in the lollowing message:
Colima, Mexico, May 31.-Six survivors of the steamer Colima have
reached here. They are John Thornton, K. E. Chilbem, of Seattle, cabin
passengers; Peters and Vindor and
Seamen Gonzales and Johnston. They
are snid to have reached shore on a
raft and another raft with five men is
reported from Sun Tolino. The survivors state that the women and children were all iu the state room and all
went down with the steamer. The
survivors also report that Purser
Waiter was seen ill n well manned
boat pulling away from the sinking
steamer towards shore. It is supposed
that this bout is still afloat.

time in the morning, which he declares
oents any alarm clock that ever was

to retire hc calls np the central office
and requests the operator to call him
up at a designated hour, in order to
find if the "phone" works pioperly.
Promptly at that hour the bell rings
loudly, nnd ho is awakened with neatness and dispatch. He claims that
tho service thus rendered is alone

You looked very much troubled as
you wondered why it wns that your

lov for his home. Wo were having
ont of those cozy 'hat* that women

wero singled out and discussed. You
had been telling me about yonr pretty
little daughter, bow woll she was doing
at school, how she excelled in music,
and tho dainty bit of embroidery in
yonr band was something that you were
milking for her nest of a room. Evidently your little Florence satisfied every
desire of your heart. And then 1 had
"And Harry?"
It is my weakness that a boy has a
charm for me that no one else can possess in my eyes.
"Harry is doing very well at school,"
you answered. "He is well, und quite
large for his age. Indeed it makes him
awkward. In fact be is just at the awkward age, wheu he Is all arms and legs.
You know how clumsy boys are when
they get nt thnt stage. But I feel quit��
worried sometimes when I Bee How littlo
he cures for his home. He seems fond
enough of us all; it isn't that be doesn't
love us, but he is always restless when
he is at home, and wants to be off somewhere else spending bis evenings."
"Where does he go!" I asked, with a
little anxiety.
"Oh, he is safe enough," and you
laughed "He goes to see his Sunday-
school teacher, and I suppose he Is just
exactly as well nil there, if not bettor,

great comfort to know that Hurry is so

to ue. Now when he got the photograph craze last winter, I just put iny
foot down on it His uncle sent him a
���rainern, and of course Harry wanted me
to rig up somo kind of a dark room for
him. I knew just what that would
amount to, stains and musses all over
tbe house, so I told bim that if he hud
to have a dark room he must find some
boy who had one and uso his. He fretted over it for a day or to, and then discovered that Mrs. Warren wonld just
as soon havo him use her dark room as
not, for she is quite an amateur photographer, and has everything of that
kind ready for use; so he goes over
there for his plates, and fusses over
them, perfectly happy with his messing,
and I am clear of it all. Boys are queer
things. If be was only a girl now, I
would enjoy him so much more. Ah,
there comes Florence from school. You
-will not wonder ut your prido in your
graceful, pretty daughter who came
sedately into tbo tho room, knowing
that I bad arrived when she saw my
umbrella In tho hall rack. Sho spoke
politely to me when her mother introduced her and sut down and began to
talk with the ease of any grown-up
woman. I did not wonder at hor self-
possession and gracefully assured manner, as I noticed how courteous you
were to hor; how, underneath your love,
there was n recognition of hor individuality, her right-to tho courtesy thut you
would show to any stranger within your
gates, a courtesy which is too often forgotten or ignored. I was charmed with
your littlo daughter, but even lieyond

Florence took me up to see her room
after a while. On tho way we passed a
small hall bedroom. I bad a wnimsical
fancy thnt it was a convict's cell, it was
so perfectly bare and cheerless. The
walls were white and bnre of ornament
of any kind. There was a small iron
bedstead, a chair, a table with the
necessary toilet appurtenances upon it
1 and a glass hanging over all. mat was
all. absolutely all. There was not even
a pretense at beautifying it.
"That is Harry's room," explained
Florence, and then she opened the door
of tho large sunny room over tho porch,
and I uttered un involuntary exclamation of delight. It was such a dainty
nest for a young girl. Tho walls were
a delicate blue, and tbo undo was decorated with trailing vines of morning
glories, painted by my friend's skilful
hands I recognized ber touch as soon
as 1 looked ut tbe graceful daintily-tinted bells. Tho little bedstead was an
iron one, bnt it was painted with white
enamel aud touched up wilh gold, while
a palo cauopy over it in ado it look like a
-let-ping Beauty. I need not tell you
nil tlio trilles that wont to make up
tho beauty of tho room. With skill,
taste ami love, one does not need a verv
loin. p'.".o to make a charming boudoir.

not bol.i a little jealous feeling for tlio
sou of tiio iioitso, as' wo went past tha
cheerless slip of n room.
"Oh. IIitry doesn't cure about his
room." Florence sai.l lightly, as I made
somo coiiune.it. "Boys don't, you
know. 1 am so glnd I am not a boy.

a look of love and triumphant trust

Somo of yon may, perhaps, in tho
greenhouse or in a collection of orchids,
but il is n rare sight oven thero, and Is
seldom soon in ull its beauty except in Its
native land. It was thorn that 1 sr.w it
first, on thc Isthmus tif Paniima.
It is not n common plant, being found
in curtain sections only and iu isolated
clumps. It does not liko high, dry soils,
hut low, marshy spots springing up from
decayed logs or from crevices in tho
To describe this beautiful flowor, after a
fashion, is easy enough, but to fully realize its peculiar loveliness ant', the marvelous accuracy of Its sliapo ono must sec it.
Tho larger and oldor bulbs frequently
send up leaf stalks six or seven foot in
height, and from those, which arc joined,
bread lnncooluiod leaves uro thrown out
in pairs.
Tho plant is an annual, and in Juno,
July and August tho flowor stalks start
up from tho huso of tho bulb, devoting
all their energies to tho formation of tlio
buds. Tho buds arc arranged on tho stalks
much liko those of the hyacinth, tho
usual number for a well-grown Btalk to
bear being from twelve to llfteon. Tho
loaves tiro vory pnlo green in color, as
though in harmony with tho dolicato
purity of tho blossom.
The blossom is of alabaster whiteness,
much like tbo uld-stylo Kngltsh pulpit
This, of itself, is strikingly curious, but
it fwlcs into Insignificance when ono looks
into tho centre of that strange blossom,
fer there, nestling in Its very heart, is tho
perfect inn-go of u dove. It requires no
lnuigituition to seo it. No one could mistake it for anything else, for no human
skill could fashion its shiifo mure perfectly, no artist could adorn it with moro
delicate tints, and no perfumer could on-
dow it witli a more delicate fragrance.
Bight In lliu cup of tlio blossom, with
tlio snow-white canopy nbout It, rests
this wondrous Image, Its delicately molded wings drooping, half extended at Its
side, its gold-tinted head bent slightly
forward, and Its tiny, crluisim-tippod bill
almost touching its snowy breast.

Is there, beyond dispute, so does nu expression pervade the imago, an expression

It is not in tlio least to bo wondered at
that tho early Spanish Catholics,
brought up in ignornnt superstition und

before this strange dweller of tlio forests
and bowed down boforo it, reverently calling it tho " Flor dol Kspirltu Santo," or
