Tramps, Dou't Come West.
A Montrealer who has just
returned from a trip through the
Western Slates and the Canadian
North.Wesl says, according to an
Eastern exchange, that never ia
his life bad he seen so muob destitution an'4 begging and so many
tramps as in tho Toeomn and
Seattle district. "From the time
ho left glenforks till he passed
Tacorna, tramps surrounded the
dining car at every station, beg
ging for money and food. At
ono station in partipalar, just
before crossic- the Columbia
river, three tramps were hung np
in effigy to a sign post, with a
notice posted above them that
any tramps found around the
neighborhood wonld be treated in
the manner represented,"

The Piratical   Mate  of  the
Betsy June.
It wan tlie schooner Belsv Jane,
For Boston from Q'linceo,
And the sk;pper had hobbled down
To take his rye whiskeo.
Rod was his nose as a carrot tip,
His breath of potations told,
And tho only use for water ho swore
Was to Bail his vessol bold,
The skipper ho turn'd np from below
With a new light in his eye ;
And lie looked aloft uud ho looked
And he gazed at tho evening sky.
"A good fair wind and an easy sea,
And a fust-rate mate I've got:
I'll finish that bottle of rye," said he,
And his vessel he soon forgot.
Ch, woe for the skipper who filled so
full i
The mate was a pirate hold;
And he took a deep oath on a marlin-
That his aim was gore and gold.
He had read of the deeds of Morgan
and Toaoh,
And he revelled in Captain Kidd,
And he had spent a year on Squau-
tum beach
In searching for treasures hid.
He laughed to soorn tho winds and
"I'm the Sea King, ond I'll fix
This vessel up as a pirate oraft "���
(She was loaded then with bricks)
Oh, the chaste full moon looked
down that night
On a lad of royal mien
Who stood at the helm of the Betsy
Aged just about thirteen.
He  aimed to rival tho Boy Buo-
And he cautiously looked around,
Aud matured his plaus as the vessel
From Quiuoy to Boston town.
He would take the Betsy Jane to

And the   Florida  Keys   and   the
And hurrah for tho Betsy Jane I
He would make the skipper walk the
And a pluiik he accordingly fixed ;
He would stand on the end and tilt
it up���
Oh, he knew the pirates' tricks.
So he called the skipper up from

To the waters of the bay,

of 15 soldiers nf tho war of 1U2,

Valuable to tlio Empire.
Tho font of the Canadian Pacific
Railroad in getting the mails
through from Japan to England
within a possible 21 day., astonishes tbo British press. The St,
Jamoa Gazette, in a leading
editorial, declares that Canada is
the most valuable highway to tho
East, and that England must keep
her withiu the Empire at any
cost. Tho fact cannot bo ignored
that Canada has not boon doing
well. Modified free trade has boon
a failure; ber inhabitants desert
her for tho United Stateg owing
to her wretched trade policy.
The Government is Urged to pro.
pose a commercial union, which
will save Canada from grasping
tho arm lhat Washington
roaches out to her.
Drove the oaptain to hia doom ;
He tumbled him over into the Bea,
Abaft of tho main jibboom.
Then loudly laughed the pirate bold
And again he laughed in glee,
"Through Shirloy Gut the Betsy

Edward Giiiis, nine yeers old,
'���van horribly and fatally mangled
at Wheeling, Wost Virgins, last
Sunday evening. Young Gillis
was playjng in tho street, and
near at hand was a dog'toeunel,
in which were confined six huge
m.istifis. While playing, Gfillis
begun teasing ihe dogs nnd they
became fearfully enraged. One
ot Lhe dogs broke down tho door
and the six ferocious brutes made
a fierce attack upon tho boy.
Ho was knocked down at tho first
onslaught and all tho dogs began
biting and chewing him. Over
twenty people wero in Bight at
tho lime and a crowd quickly
gathered, but so groat was the
foar of the ferocious brutes, wh
scemod utterly mad from the
taste of blood, that il was fully
five minutes before aid reached
tho unfortunate youth. Policeman James Carney, assistod by
William Robinson, armed with
revolvors and crowbars, finally
roached tho infuriated animals,
but it was impossible to make
them loosen their hold on the
child, and Carnoy shot five dogs
doad whilo thoy wero still chewing and biting thoir victim, The
sixth brute escaped. Carney
wus Bovorcly bitten. GllliB'
woutfds are terrible, His eyes,
cars and noso wero literally billon out, while his body, has no
fowor than GO wounds. Tho dogs
that wero killed wore valued al

Fruit ��� Growing  in   iievelstoke.
Sir,���Although not an old resident
ol thu ton n, or oven ef the Province,
I have often thought what -.'.and
facilities there are in Revelstoke for
fruitgrowing. It6oemsto me that
everything iu nature combine to this
1 In tbo first place, the soil is just
the right kind, according to my experience, for nearly all out-door
fruits, apples, peais, aud plums
especially. I have seen fine crops
produced iu some parts of Ontario
where the soil approaches very
nearly to this, but ns a rule the
trouble with tic Ontario Foil is that
it contains too much sand, mailing
it so light that in many cases, where
tho roots bad not obtained a deep
hold, I havo seen the trees, with
iheir heavy drops, although well
propped, blown right over by just
an ordinary wind. The soil here is
not so loo o as that, and I have no
doubt of its being rich in nil the
ingredients required for good frnit-
ruising bind.
In the second p'uee, the country
to the north being comparatively
Open for some miles, tho suu is not
obscured from Ihe lime he rises over
the mouutaiu tups to tho east until
lie sinks to rest behind the big hill
just across the river; while the
mountains'to tho north and northeast arc close, thus cutting off the
liiting, fruit-destroying wind which
iuvariublj comes from those points
of tbe compass, and protecting the
blossoms Irein being roughly handled by tho blustering northerly and
north-easterly breezes of the early
spring ; aud ..ho acting in a similar
capacity in warding off that northern
Intruder, Juok 1'iost, when the fruit
is ripening.
Another thing I notice, and that
is the exoepti ually large huckleberries which abound iu this loeil-
ity. Why thev are almost as large
again as the berries which grow
wild iu the winds ot Ontario. The
noil uin.-t be prolirio to produce
such berries without any of those
artificial aids whi.-h fruit-grower*
know how to UjC with success.
I have heard it stated that the
climate is too dry for mo^t fruits.
Now this objee-tijn should not bold
good for a moment. With sneh a
splendid water supply as the
Columbia furnishes, it tvould require very litlle labor, or ex
either, to provide a system of lrri-1
gatiun uot to be excelled
But I uiUBt -ay that in my opinion ,
the opp.  ite side of the river, with
its virgin soil impregnated with just i
euough luoist'ue, presents the appearance of an apple-grower s. pum-

John Powdjo, former cJiio/ of
the Chippewa tribo of Indians,
lives ou lhe banks of Si. Mary's
river at Siiult Sic Marie, aud acts
as a guide for hunting parties.
Lust Saturday three Cincinnati
men engaged him for a day's
hunt. Tiny started to cross the
river this morning, and when
nearly across they noticed a,
large bird flying high in the air
The Indian said it waB an eagle,
and suggested that he should
row back lo the American shore,
so as to be within gun shot of the
bird if it should desoend. Ilo did
so, and the bird came down within a mile of the ].o;iil wl.oro the
party landed. They then started
for a Liiu shot distunce. J'ow.lic's
Btjuuw meantime hud gone do'wn
lo lhe river to get somo water,
leaving hor three - mouihs uld
papoose ticl to the usual board
and leaning against tlie side of
her hul. The tugle spied the
child uud Blowly descepded to
tho earth. When about 200 feet
li'om tho ground the bird mado a
swoop on lhe helpless child. The
squaw saw the descent ot the bird
and supposed that it wus alter a
chicken, but she was horrified a
moment later te see lhc eagio ribo
v\ilh the child in ils talons
When about ten feet from the
ground the eagle dropped its
load, but immediately swooped
down on it again. Failing in un
attempt to pick up tho child, the
eagle pecked at ils throat and
eyes, gouging one eye out and
lacerating its body, The squaw
soon reached Iho spot aud
attempted lo drive tbo eagle oil
with sticks, bm lhe bird turned
ou hoi and pocked at her, infliclx
ing a serious gash. It then roso
in the air about 100 feet, but apparently changed iiu miud,
swooped down again. ' At this
moment tho sound oi two distant
rifle shots was heard, and the
bird leil to the ground, A
minute later Fowdjc und party
rushed up to make sure of thoir
giime. l'ovvdji! scarcely reached
ihe eagle when he heard a shriek
lre.ni his .-quaw, and discovered
that his child had been killed.
It is not known whether the
child was killed by It'. fall or by
the ioBs oi blood lioui its wound.
The eagle was one oi the bald -
