Unjust Awards at the New
Westminster Show,
From several letters which have
appeared in tbo columns of the
New Wcstir.i.uilei' pnpors during
the p.'.tl fow days oouoerning the
awards for plants and ferns at
lbe lato exhibition in that city,
it would appear that the diBoi.se
called "doodling" bad made its
���ippuni-uiw,,, ttiM'o, The writers
complain that the energetic seure
i.tn-y of t'.o i-how carried off all the
prizes in the amateur classes for
ferns and flowers, to be gathered
or growii by bona Gdo amateur
e&bibitoi'p. It is complained thai
the genilcniiin who look ull the
honors was not ontilled to tbem,
as thero were better exhibits
shown, and that bad be cot been
an active member of tbo show
he would not have ob'ained first
place. This alone would be a
serious charge; but, tbo writers
also Slate that tho gentleman did
not obey the rules and regulations
which be, as secretary, presumably drew up, which plainly Stated
that lbe ferns should be gathered
and the flowers grown by the
exhibitor, Neither ef Ihe-e rules,
say lbe waiters, was observed by
tho secretary, as I.e bought most
of ihe terns at different times
prior to the show, and tl.o fact
of bis keeping a prof.ssio' al gardener would debar him from competing in the umukur e'ass for
flowers, If these nccus-.lions are
true it iB to be hope I the secretin')

A Boston Fish Story
Several months ugo a lady residing on Beacon street took off
a number of rings from her fingers
and laid tbem upon her dressing
table. After washing her ham's
she returned to the room to replace her rings, whon to her
astonishment one of tbem, a
diamond ring, was missing. Sbo
wus certain lhat she took the
ring from her finger, and equally
certain tint no ono coull havo
entered the room without her
knowledge during tbo fi vo
minotes she was in the b ali-room,
A ii.ohI rigid search was msti-.
lilted, but the missing ring,
valued at 82'JU, was not found.
A Ii-w weeks since tho lady was
much aim .yed hy .nice. Almost
nightly they held their revels,
t'he-y not only destroyed ber
deep hut choice l.-c-.-s were muti-
luted, The lady procured a trap,
o'.e of llie old-fashioned kiud,
and having baited it with a temps
ling hitol cheese, pi,iced it near
the scene of il -pred.itions On
tlio following morning she had
threo tine silky mica of various
sizes. One of them wis so peculiarly const ruotcd ihal it attracted
her attention, ag it appearod to
h.jre a string tied around its
body, The servant girl was in-
structeil to drown the captives
and reset tbe trap, and she was
about throwing the dead mice into the dirt barrel when her eye
was attracted by a sparkle from
what proved to bo the lost diamond ring, which was not perceptible when tbe mouse was
alive, but which came to light
after the severe soaking which
tho mouso received. Il is sup.
posed that in his baste to get
away be ran l.is heal through
.he ring, ami subsequent struggles only forced il over his lore-
legs, where it remained. Tbis is
a tough story, but we give as it

When fie 0. V. R. Co. changed

by the Provincial Government, the
litter claiming tbat Mr, Greer had
no right to it, it being an Indian

that it was a forgery and th.it he had

Was issuod, but exeontion was delayed while tho railway company
endeavored to make au arrangement
with Mr. Greer, offering bim, it is
said, as much as ��5,00!) to give up
possession.   Failing in the.e negotiations, the sl:oriT was ordered to

officers, and as he passed the window
he saw Greer pick up a gnu. AT i
knocking, Armstrong said, "Ope:

could mnko out, the reply was, " Oo

The Dominion's export of eggs
to England is, by reaeon of the
excellent refrigerating nrrungo*
motits provided en routo, proving
highly successful, and thus competing fairly with the French
and even tho Irish consignment
of eggs to England. No leos than
9,000,000 Canadian eggs were
thus shipped to tho Old Country
in tho first threo months of the
present season, most of them
going to Liverpool and the .Vorth.
This is, at least, a satisfactory bo-
ginning, though the Canadian egg
