A very serious bush fire haa been
raging this week in tho neighborhood
of Canyon Creek and within the timber limits of the Golden Lumber Co.
The fire has really been burning for
several weeks past, but as it did not
amount to anything no attention was
paid to it. On Tuesday afternoon
however, it assumed vast proportions
and a large quantity of valuable timber
waa destroyed. A strong wind started to blow about nine o'clock Tuesday
night, driving the fire back, which
with the heavy raiu that followed
brought the fire, to a certain extent,
into subjection, If the Lumber Co.
have sustsined any serious loss from
ths effects of the fire they can put it
down to their own carelessness as they

A Farewell Supper.
A farewell supper was given by the
Donald Gun Club and citizens on
Saturday evening last, in honor of Mr.
A. P. Cummins, on the occasion of his
leaving the town to resume the practice of his profession of surveying.
Twenty-seven sat down to supper
such as has, probably, never been ex-
colled in this part of the Province,
provided by Mr. and Mrs. Nellis; the
table was beautifully decorated for the
occasion by Mrs. Nellis.
The health of the guest of the evening (Mr. Cummins), was proposed by
the vice-president of the Gun Club
(Dr. Symonds) who alluded to the
inauguration of the-club by Mr. Cummins, to its success, present prosperity
and to the fact that as Mr. Cummins
remains its president, the club hopes
to retain his help in the management
and in the field. The toast was accompanied by musical honors.
The health of Sheriff Redgrave was

SATURDAY, AUG. 10, 1895.
Mr. Luther Beasley walked among,
but not of, the festive crowd. He
-was, in fact, taking his conscience to
the circus���and it wus a grevious task
He deeply regretted that his day's
work lay in such a waste part of the
vineyard ; and he feared, too, that his
motives for going there might bo misunderstood. Already he had beon recognized and gleefully pointed out by
certain of the unregenerato But he
was sure that he was in the line of
his duty ���that straight nnd tenuous
line of which, if ono may say so, ho
walked as on a tight-rope toward thn
better world. He was satisfied with
himself; and perhaps he hnd some
reason to be, for he obeyed every command of his rigid sense of right. Also
his conscience, not having enough to
do at home, had taken out a roving
commission to interfere with other
people's affairs. One morning on the
way down town he had been shocked
by the sight of tho colored posters of a
circus, which, ranged along a fence
offered a panorama of wonders. Among
these was a picture of The Rescue of
Little Rosalie the Prairie Flower. It
represented u very small girl iu very
short pink skirts held high in the
arms of a woman who stood upon the
back of a galloping horse, pursued by
mounted Sioux, The scene excited tho
perfect disapproval of Mr. Beasley; it
struck him us indecorous, u tempting
of Providence, and a cruelty toward a
child, who, though undoubtedly reprobate, had yet a poor perishable body
that ought to be protected from broken
bones. Then and there he decided to
visit the circus and try to save this
brand from the burning. Being aware
that brands ure apt to rub off blackly,
he did not propose to bring the child
into contact with his own offspring,
spotless as clean pocket handkerchiefs,
but to place her in some institution
where she would be strictly looked
He went grimly on, past the fakirs,
the peanut sellers, the tubs of lemonade, where his face wus reflected acidulous aud yellowish. Those who
knew him did wrong to jeer; they
ought to have seeu by the droop ol his
alpaca coat how his shoulders wero
burdened by his strange duty. Others
had turned out in groups, half a dozen
grown persons us escort to u child ;
but Mr. Beasley walked alone with
his conscience. Ho paltered with his
mission so far as to enter the sideshow,
hoping that this might in some way-
dispense him from going into tbe main
tent. In the sideshow were to be seen
Wonders of Nature; Mr. Beasley had
always distrusted nature as the antithesis of grace, but uow she seemed to
him at least half way removed from
absolute evil. The big ring was, to
his mind, s truly infernal circle. And
he hated sin with a rigor and vigor
tbat let off a lot of the angry passions
which will rise in the best of humans.
The ticket-taker eyed Mr. Beasley
curiously : "Looks like a Sunday-
school superintendent���but if so,
where's the kids? Ho come all by
himself for a blow out."
The first freak that dawned upon
Mr. Beasley was tho Tattooed Woman.
She sat upon a platform, with a sullen
and discouraged air.offering her photo*
graphs to the crowd, who did not buy
them. Her dtess wus modest enough,
though iu Mr. Beaslev's opinion it
begun too lute and ended too early,
displaying the tattoood figures aud
lines upon her shoulders, arms and
ankles. Then he reflected that she
was probably a native of some heathen
land, and that her costume was no
doubt an advance upon that of her
fomalo ancestors. He approached the
new woman with the intent to speak
to her.
"Want a photograph?" she asked
Mr. Beasley waved it away. "No,
no," he said, "certainly not. I should
like to talk with you for a few moments."
"Taik is cheap," said she.
"And yet it may have precious results. Are you from one of the isles
of the sea���a converted idolater in
"I was born on Long Island, if that's
what you mean."
"Ah, Long Island, near the city of
New York! Yes. Then I assume
that you have at some time been a
missionary, and received your���geometrical designs in the course of your
. "Missionary nothing! I earn my
salary as a freak! and uo thanks to
them who don't buy my photographs
"But, iny Christian friend, you are
a woman, and it is sad to see you
was'e your life in these ungodly surroundings."
"Circus folks are as good as other
folks. And they mind their own
"You might be the virtuous wife of
un exemplary husband, educating your
children" ���
Her eyes flashed; she sprang to her
feet. Mr. Beasley retreated a few steps
"I am a respectable woman. And I
am not the wife of a fool���which is
more than your wife can say. My
man is the best of husbands, and it is
not his fault if he is laid up. And I'm
bringing up Rosalie to live honest and
earn her bread. Aud you clear out!"
Mr. Beasley was not an unkind man
he was only narrow aud bigoted. He
answered her pacifically "I did not intend to say that yuu were not respectable. Only I am sorry that you have
not chosen a better profession. It is
uot seemly for a woman to exhibit
herself as you do. But I have spoken
only for yeur own good. I abhor sin,
but" -
"Well, I'm no freak in that line. I
do about us well as I kuow how, if
folks don't make ine too mad," she
told him. She recognized that he was
sincere, and began to find him rather
Do you   say   that Rosalie is your
"Sho is."
"Then I offer you a blessed opportunity.   Let me take the girl."
-���You ���take my chiid!" Her look
of anger and fright was indescribable.
"What do you mean? What right
have you to take away our Rosalie?"
"The right of ono wbo earnestly desires to make a serious snd useful
woman of this unfortunate little
mountebank. I know," be went on,
not understanding that she wss silent
fiom pure rsge, that it is hard to part
from your offspring. ' But the carnal
affections must be crushed. I should
place her in a reformatory Institution,
where her eternal welfare will be the
object of prayerful attention. Of course
I shall refer you to iny pastor snd
other persons of high standing in the
community, who will tell you that I
am s proper custodian for tbe child."
The woman's eyes darted fire, she
spoke between her clenched teeth. "If
ever you dare to touch Rosalie, I'll
knife you! 'I will follow you until I
can kill you!   Now, go!"
Even Mr. Beasley could realize that
this infuriated mother was terrible
and superb. A tigress defending her
young was of this woman's kind. The
over righteous man was cowed. "I���
I���you must excuse me���but I meant
it all for your good and hers."
The woman had seated herself again
she was trying to regain calm. Her
face had become first red, then white,
with anger; the tat.ooings seemed to
blacken with the ebb and flow of hot
blood behind them. "Certainly, I
will excuse you this time," said the
astonishing creature. "I have not
travelled inside a trunk. I have seen
the world���and there's all sorts in it.
And you are not half a bad sort. ' But
you have got to learn that there are
people outside of your Sunday-school.
I am willing to be friendly, I will present you with my photograph, gratis,
for keeps. And now and then you
must look at it and remember what I
tell you about there being more than
several kinds of peoplo in the world.
And the Lord made them all. He
knows why, and can judge them. You
can't. Now, you go! I'm not taking
back tbat if ever you touch Rosalie
I'll kill you.   Now go in peace."
The woman leaned back in her chair
her eyelids dropped; her fingers unclenched softly upon her knees, she
appeared half drowsy, like a wild animal .whose fury is spent. Mr. Beasley
departed. As he passed the ticket-
taker the latter said: "Polly Murray
has been talking to you, hasn't she?"
'���The tattooed woman?"
'���That is Mrs. Murray, and a good
one she is. She needs all her grit. I
tell Polly she ought to have a soft seat
in tbe next world, for she has got it
hard in this, You interested to hear
about her?"   i ij  ���' ���
"Very much so," answered Mr.
Beasley, who began to have a dim
sense-one doubts whether he will
ever formulate it enough to do hiin
any good���that there aie virtues
which flourish in strange habitats-
irregular virtues, of course, yet perhaps they count for something above.
"Well, it was like this. A year
ago; Polly and her husband, Joe Murray���they were billed aa Signor Moret-
tini aud Mile. Zephirine���earned the
biggest pay in the show. They drew
like a team of four horses and a mustard plaster. Trapexe act. Handsomest act you ever did see. They
kept the little girl choice, she wasn't
in the show, and nothing rough was
ever heard or seen by Rosy. Well,
sir, one evening they were going ou
fine, away up to tbe top of the tent,
and Joe was ready to catch Polly on
the fly, when somehow he lost his
grip and fell. The net was all right,
of course, but he didn't get his turn in
the air, snd he came down wrong.
Polly, she saw how it was, and dropped down quick after him. She gave
one scream as if the soul was being
torn out of her body."
"Was the man killed?" asked Mr.
Beasley, who felt a sudden unwarrantable solicitude for these outcasts.
"No sir. But I don't know but he
might ss well have been. He queered
his spine. The doctors ssy with care
which spell* money���he may get well
In s yesr or two. Of course he will
never climb atrsr-exe sgain. But
there will be s place for him in this
show ss long ss he wsnts it, for he is
s good man, and wss hurt in ths line
of his duty."
Duty! Mr. Beasley disliked to hear
the word in such s connection.
"You don't see it that way? I tell
you, sir, Joe was in his duty, working
to support his family. A square man,
always cheerful and lively, never
drunk. Yes, sir, we've got s use for
Joe Murrsy in this show every time,
if it's only to twiddle hi* thumbs for
Mr. Beasley felt his criterions slipping away from him. Would he bs
so warmly regarded among his neighbors?   The ticket taker continued:
"Polly, she lost her nervs for good
that time. Joe said it was no matter,
he would not have let her play such
dangerous acts with any man but him.
So she went and got herself tattooed.
She doesn't make large pay by that,
she is no great of a freak. So she sew*
every minute she can get, day and
night, too, I guess, on the costumes
and mending, and earns that way.
But to afford Joe the treatment in the
hospital nnd extra comforts that he
needs, Polly has had to put Rosalie
into the ring. Polly ain't a rider, she
had to hand tho kid to Mrs. Grover -
Mme. Celestine on the bills���snd Polly
says, 'Louisa Grover, I trust mv baby
to you. If she gets hurt I'll shoot you
dead as you ride out of the ring.' And
the tears came right iuto Louisa's eyes
and she puts her arms lovingly around
Polly aud kisses her, and says she, 'I
am a mother myself, I promise you I
promise you I will take better care of
your baby than I would of my own.'
Polly was all broke up, and she says,
very meek, ' You must forgive me
Louisa, for talking like that to you.'
And Louisa says, 'I wouldn't have
thought much of you it you hadn't felt
that way.' But it is awful to see how
anxious Polly is until Louisa comes
riding out after the act, with Rosy
safe and laughing in her arms. Rosy
likes it. I asked Polly one day, 'Why
do you try to earn bo much? Take
Rosy out of the ring and you wouldn't
be scared to death twice a day, st 3:46
and 9:15 sharp.' Polly's face went
dead white snd her eyes burned like
electric lights, but sho answered me
quiet. 'No,' says she, 'that can't be.
You know how I lore my baby, but
you don't know how I love my man.
If Rosy was to break her neck, Joe
shall have the best of cure.' And then
she fell to sobbing and cursed herself
for a bad mother to say such things.
But you could see thut she wss really
thinking of Joe. Yes sir, Polly Murray is a good woman, aud I'm glad
you take r.n interest, in her. The boss
is giving them a benefit to-night;
everything after the bare expenses sre
paid, and we are all chipping in our
night's pay. Won't you urge your
fritnds to come?"
Mr. Beasley's conscience would not
permit that. But ho con tri bu ted five
dollars���which he put down in his
cash account as For the Heathen. He
sometimes feels ss if he knew either

Sbeeklng  Masanere of Christians In
Shanghai, Aug..3.���Advices just received from Foo Chow are that a telegram was received there on the 3rd.
which says that a fearful massacre of
Christians occurred at Ku Cheng,
Five foreign lsdies sre amongst the
murdered. No other particulars have
yet been learned.
Washington, Ang. a���The state department has received a cablegram
from United States Consul Jernigau,
at Shanghai, stating that one American female missionary was wounded
and four British female missionaries
killed at the mission of Kiuchang.
No further details are given iu the
The place described is believed to be
in the province of Hupe, far up the
banks of the Yang Tse River, beyond
the reach of the men-of-war, and about
400 miles north of Cheng Tu, where
the last missionary riots occurred.
The state department will take steps
in the matter at once. ������- ''
Fierce Forest Fires.
Marinette, Wis,., Aug. 3.���The probability is thst one hundred residents
of Beaver Island, located, in Green
Bay, at the entrance of' the Straits of
Mackinaw, have bean burned to death
in the forest fires, which have desolated the entire island during the last few
days. Csptsin Young of the steamer
Ci}hs, which arrived here yesterday,
reported tbat Bearer Island on Wednesday night wss enveloped in flames,
which could be seen many miles out on
Lake Michigan. The inhabitants employed in fishing snd lumbering, nuin-
ber-bout 100. The island is fifty
miles from the mainland and it is not
believed sid could have been secured in
time to save life and property,
Charlevoix, Mich., Aug. 3.���The reports of the devastation of Beaver
Island are not credited. There are
forest fires on the island but tbe reports
are believed to bs greatly exaggerated.
Miners Entombed.
Glasgow, Ang. 2.��� The Aachen
Hsrvie Colliery at Saltcoats, a town
on the Bay of Ayr, twenty-four miles
southwest of here, hss been flooded.
Sixty men have been rescued snd fourteen sre entombed in the mine snd it is
believed thst they have perished.
Searching parti *�� have been formed,
but sre unable te penetrate to the
point where tbe unfortunate victims
are. There were many narrow escapes ,
on the part of those who succeeded in
getting out of the doomed mine in
time. One boy was drowned while
venturing into the pit to wsrn bis
comrades of their dsnger. There is a
scene of intense excitement st the pit's
mouth where the wives, mothers and
families of the entombed miuers sre
gathered, wringing their hands snd
giving sll sorts of manifestations of
grief and despair. Many refute to
give up hope of the imprisoned miners
being saved, and their agonising sus-'
pens* is no less distressing to see thsn the loud clamour of those who thus
show their despair. Those wbo were
rescued arrived at the surface in a
most 'exhausted condition sud many

The Belleville Sun gives gpofl advic^
as follows : More towns die for lack
of confidence on the part of business
men nnd lack of spirit than from any
other cause. When a man in search
of a home or business location goes
into a town and finds everything brimful of hope and enthusiasm over the
prospects of tho place, and all earnestly at work to build il up, he soon becomes imbued wjth the sume spitit,
and as a result drives down his stakes
and goes to work with the snnie interest. When,��� however, he goes to a
town where everyone expresses doutjt
and apprehension of the future prosperity of the place, moping about and
indulging in mournful complaints, he
naturally feels that this is no place for
him, and at once shakes the dust off
his feet, while he pulls out with all
possible speed for some orher place.
Consequently try to make a live, energetic town out of the one in which
you live. When ydtfjare working for
or saying a good thing for your town
you are accomplishing ull themore for
