Wo havo just received a handsomely hound copy of MoKim's

all tlie Canadian papers are included

every success,and hope every newspaper in the country will lend it a

that lino on the oontiueut, taking
into consideration the fact that it is
a maiden effort. From an urticlii on
lhe first neuspapeis published in
Canada we extract the following iu-
teresting item  concerning B.C.:���
"British Columbia anticipated
Manitoba by about' two years ip the
establishment of He first newspaper,
It is worthy of notice that there is
not to-day a Preach journal in that
province, yet the first paper was
issued in lhat language���its publisher
being the Komau Catholic bishop,
Dr. Demers. The editor was a
French count, Paul de Garo, who
had been oblineil to fly from France
duriug the Napoleon III. troubles.
Lauding at San Francisco he fouud
his way to Victoria, where lie was
engaged by the bishop to edit the
paper, of which only a few numbers
were published. The type aud c.ises
were of a quaint old French style,
and the press must have been nearly
a hundred years old thee, It is still
to be found in the office of the
Kamloops Sentinel, and to look at it,
says Mr. Higgius, "would bring to
the modern printer's lace a smile of
pity for our fathers in journalism."
When the bishop dropped tho paper,
Count de Garo, after idling about
town for a time, took ii position as
waiter in a restaurant, and thither,
we are told, tho young swells "qscd
to flock solely lor the purpose of
haviug it to say that they were

18b'l the count, along witli many
others, was smitten with tho gold-
fever, aud took passage ih an old
steamer called the Cariboo Fly,
bound for the Cariboo gold mines.
As tho vessel was clearing the
harbour she was blown np, and
among the bodies recovered was
that oi the count. Th,ns died the

A peculiar circumstance is reported

Lake Station, 16 miles to the east, a
place having no telephone connection
with either Tappen Sidiug or Salmon
Arm, Several persons were present,
among whom was Mr, H. D, Hume,

On Wednesday afternoou an Icelander named E. Sainuelsou, about
30 yours of age, met his death by
fulling into the Columbia Biver
from the top of the C. P. R. bridge
at Revelstoke, a distauco of over
lilty feet. He was ouo of Mr. J.
Foley's sectiou gaug, which has been
engaged for thu past iveek or two iu
placing rock around the base of the
piers as protection against the swift
aud turgid current. Ho struck the
wutor on his back, and theu disappeared in the middle of tho deep
eddy just below the bridge, Ou
coining to the surlace he was seen
making frautic efforts to reach oue
of the piers, but before any assistance oouhl be roudt-red he weut doivn
again and did not reappear. By
this time a rope had beeu fetched,
and had ho como to the surface
once more there is no doubt he
would havo boen rescued, but tho
water at that spot is deep aud broken
by a series of eddies, or small whirlpools. Probably the fall knocked
tho breath out of him aud the movements noticed as be came up wero
the dying struggles, Grapnel irons
were used without effect and several
charges of dynamiio were exploded
at tho bottom of the river, but the
ouly result was tbe appearance of a
few dead liah. Darkness coming on,
operations wero suspended till next
morning, when a boat with live men
and two grapnels coutiuued thu

belief is tbat tho body will bo fouud

Feeling in the Bones.
Pooplo usually imagine that iheir bones
are of sol,lid mineral construction, without
any feeling iu them. No one who has ever
had a leg or an arm cut oil' is likely to in-
dulgo in such a mistaken notion. Comparatively speaking, little pain is fell when the

individual hair is u hollow tube whose life

Snails for Consumption,
Many of the alleged discoveries in medicine are after all litlle more than revivals
of very old theories, says a fit. Louis doctor. One of the latest fads for the treatment of consumption is the snail cure,
which is said to have been tried and found
successful. There is nothing new in this,
for in an old medical work, published in
17411. copies of which are still to be found in
several libraries, there is a long account of
a mixture of garden snails and earth worms

books the fact can be gleaned that this very
objectionable remedy has been popular in
thc South of England nml in Wales for
years, being regarded as superior in every
respect to di inking cod liver oil.

In the Imperial House of Commons on
Monday ou a motion to go into committee
of supply, the Hon. Sir Henry Stafford
Northcote, Conservative member for Exeter,
took occasion to move that the House of
Commons urge upon the Government the
necessity of immediate steps to complete the
harbor of protection at Esquimault, British
Columbia, which is the station for Her
Majesty's fleet in that section of the Pacific.
Sir Henry argued that the route from Great
Britain to Asia by way of the Canadian
Pacific route would not be secure unless
steps should be taken to make Esquimault
harbor safe for the protection of commerce.
Rear Admiral Edward Field, Conservative
member for Eastbourne, supported the motion of Sir Henry, urghig that the defence
of British-Canadian interests imperatively
required that the Government push to a completion the work at Esquimault.
Mr. William H, K. Redmond, Nationalist
member for Fermanagh, said that the defence of Esquimault was of more importance
to England than to Canada, ami that England's action had not been generous toward
the Canadians in insisting that they should
stand a share of the burden in excess of what
they thought to be fair.
Col. Thomas Waring, Conservative, ridiculed the statement of Mr, Redmond and
defended the Government.
The Right Hon, George Osborne Morgan,
Liberal, snid that in behalf of the Opposition
he desired to approve the extremely fair
attitude of the Government,
Secretary for War Stanhope, replying to
Sir Henry Stafford Northcote, said lie regretted that thc fortification of Esquimault
was not yet completed, and the more so for
the reason that this made it an exception to
other foreign stations, whose fortifications,
with the single exception of Esquimault,
have been brought to completion. The delay had been due to the reluctance of Canada to stand a fair share of the cost. Under
the circumstances the Government would be
unable lo accept the motion,
Sir Henry withdrew his motion in deference to the wishes of the Government as expressed by the Secretary for War.
Thc discussion created a decided sensation, owing to��� the excitement on the Be-
bring sea issue. It is believed that the
object in putting forward the motion was to
got the sense of the House as to how far the
Government would be supported in a firm
attitude us to the seal fisheries.
Another cablegram says that the British
Admiralty has received a private report
from Admiral Watson of the North American station giving a detailed account of the
United States commerce, ship and engine
building, and construction facilities. The
shipbuilding firms, he states, in the interior
of the United States, especially at Diduth,
Milwaukee, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland,
Pufl'alo, Erie, and Bay City, could all be
called upon in a short time to build ships
which could be easily converted into ships
of war, Admiral Watson's attention was
called m tnis by Canadian shipbuilders who
state that by the agreement of 1817 they are
unable to provide for war. He suggests,
therefore that the Admiralty throw a sop
to the Canadians and build dockyards along
the lakes, giving them the same advantages
as Americans.
To this the Admiralty has replied:
" Pooh I pooh I it is plenty of time to look
into the matter when the United States
show itself unfriendly. At present is no indication of unfriendliness, and the British
Government is not going to throw away
money merely tor the purpose of aggravating the United States Government and
causing a speedy abrogation of the treaty.''

It is said that the "cutters" in Franco

at present it is hardly possible in the whole

How False Hair is Obtained,
The best false hair comes from France,
where it is sold by the gramme at prices
which vary according to quality and color.
The most expensive false hair is the silver
white variety, which is in great demand and
very difficult to find. This is due to the
fact that men grow bald in a majority of
cases Iklure their hair reaches the silver
white stage, and women, whether bald or
not, are not disposed to seli their while hair
at any price,   They need it themselves.
Still women growing bald must have
white hair to match the scant allowance advancing age has left I hem. The chemists
have taken the matter in hand and are abel
to produce by decoloration of hair ol any
color a tolerable grade of white hair which,
however, has a bluish tint not at all ap-
pi-oai lung in beauty the silvery softness of
hair which has been bleached by nature
False hair of the ordinary shades is obtained in two ways. The better and more
expensive kind is cut directly from the heads
ol peasanl women', who sell their silken
i lometimes for a more song and sometimes for a fair price, according as they have
learned wisdom. Every year the whole
territory of France is travelled over by men
whose business il is to persuade village
maidens, iheir mothers and their aunts to
pari with theii hairfor financial ccisidera-

Tl,,' ,'|,-lining ni' this rofuso hair Is an
operation which requires careful attention,
It is certainly to be deplored that my-
one should have a favorite vice, but it may
be thought a matter of entire congratulation
that he should have a favorite virtue. Of
course, we do not look for perfection, we
cannot expect that anyone will have that
entire balance of character that gives to
each excellence its exact proportion and betrays no preference for one above the other,
save as its importance justifies it. Indeed,
deficiencies are so numerous and so prominent that we are rejoiced when we sec any
virtue pronounced enough and prized
enough to be esteemed a favorite.
Neverthclesss, the use sometimes made
a favorite virtue is by no means calculated to win for it from others the love
and esteem in which itisheld by its possessor,
.Sometimes it is made to duty for a host of
shortcomings. How often do we hear it
said, " If I am nothing else I am sincere,"
or " Whatever faults I have I am not ungrateful," and so on through a li03t of characteristics, each of which is supposed to be
so valuable in itself as to counterbalance
many acknowledged defects. .Sometime,
this favorite virtue, thus isolated, isslrained
to so unnatural an extreme as to lose all its
attractiveness. Sincerity, for example, is a
sterling and noble quality, and one all too
rare in the world ; but, divorced from kind
feeling and sympathy, it often degenerates
into mere blindness and rudeness. He who
makes it his boast is almost certian to use it
in some way prejudicial to his neighbors.
He will call attention to their faults or disadvantages, or will express quite needlessly
his disapproval or dislike, tints exciting unpleasant or resentful feelings, and losing his
influence ovor them. Often the favorite
virtue is one of minor impoitance, and its
prominence is made to sacrifice much that is
more valuable than itself. Order is an excellent, thing ; it is an instrument of comfort,
pleasure and beauty; it saves time and
nerves ; favors dispatch ; it aids success. 1 n
the ollice and in the factory, in the city
street and the country farm, in out-door life
and in the home its presence is invaluable.
Yet, after all, it is but a means to an end-
happiness, With some persons it seems to
bean and in itself, to which all other things
must be scarified!. Not content with being
orderly themselves, and recommeiiuiug it by
example and suggestion to others, they insist upon it, in season and out of season:
they fret and scold at every slight deviation,
thus producing distress and annoyance to
all concerned. Is it worth the price? Far
more admirable and effective is that sense
of order which recognizes its use and its
limits: which conforms itself to the comfort
of others, overlooking many failures, quietly
supplying their lack and abstain ing from reproach or censure.
I well remember seeing two lads, on a
journey from Devonshire to London many
years ago, eating their luncheon in the railway carriage at the station. The luncheon
was spread out on a damask cloth laid on a
seat between the two boys, and Prince
George was busy cutting up a dainty bit of
game for his elder brother, who had not
been overwell, and was leaning back rather
wearily against the cushions.
I saw him years later, a tall, line young
sailor, bronzed with travel,but bright eyed
and light hearted as ever.
The lads spent a great portion of their
time at Sandringliani, the country seat of
the Prince of Wales, where so far as it is
possible formality is cast aside. Not a
peasant or a squire's son in the country but
knows Prince George of the merry laugh
and witty, kindly speech. The three Princesses, Louise, Victoria and Maude, have
been taught every housewifely accomplishment. They can " bake and brew," like
the girl in the old ballad, " make well a
feather bed," and few Belgravian dressmakers can fit and fashion a gown as well as
these sisters. Apart from these homely acquirements, they have of course, had
masters in various branches; music and
languages being specially considered, since
of course, the society they have in court life
at home or abroad, is cosmopolitan.
Princess Maude, the youngest sister, is
not, only the prettiest of the trio, but is
said to be lhe cleverest. But she has for
some years been very delicate, and great
care has to be taken of her.
The Duchess of Fife is a woman of sound
common sense and exquisite tact, iu her new
home this quality has been most apparent,
for she has been obliged to cast aside some
of the state in which she was born and bred,
and yet to hold her own as the Prince's
The second of the three sisters, Princess
Viotoria is an ardent lover of out of door
sports, fond of the country, never so happy
as when al Saudi Ingham. At the house of
one of the few intimate friends of the young
Princesses I remember seeing charming
photographs, amateur work, of this Princess with her dogs about her. She bad evidently been out for a long ramble or scamper, as her dress wis rather " rough and
tumble," her jacket buttoned crooked and
her sailor hat somewhat awry, but the
bright sweet face ,as very pleasant to look
upon, just as the girl herself is when one
sees her in the park dit ing the sunny London season.
All three are plain likeness of their still
beantifll' mother ; yet they are bonny looking, fresh and clear eyed, with upright figures, well poised heads and a graceful carriage    They have   not  what  are  called
"households " of their own.   Since schoolroom days arc over each has a lady companion and a "dresser" or maid, each her
own special  apartments  in  .Marlborough
house and at Sanilringhani, while a special
" major domo " and a page are on duty for
I the two Princesses now at home    They are

Doubtful Friendship,
While not admiring the classical phraseo*
ogy of the last sentence in the following
editorial extract from the Toronto Telegram
we cannot refrain from saying that the extract itself hits a good-sized nail plump on
the head:
The New York Sun speaks approvingly of
onr friends the Liberals." Its -ensure is
more to be coveted by a Canadian pa.'ty than
its praise. It is the brightest ot American
newspapers, but even those who admire its
ibility despise the spirit that makes it the
unreasoning enemy of Britain; llm foe of
every party that makes the nation's greatness its first care, and the friend of every
fuel imi that troubles tho empire,
The Sun isiitpyical American newspaper.
Never, even by accident, is it just to Britain, and not a good word for the greatest
of countries appears in its editorial columns
from year's end lo year's end.
This is the journal that speaks of "our
friends the Liberals."
Thai parly through the errorsof its wrong
headed leaders has earned the approbation
ul journals that hale Canada and fear Britain, When Canada is ohoosing botween its
own parlies, approval from tho cultured
Foiilaulsin of the New York Sun is a poor
recommendation for the faction that has
earned its praise,
The idea that the Sun's praise i nelpiii!
to "our friends the Liberals "is an , ntirely
Blip iriluous proof of that journal': ignorance
of Canada and the Canadians. The popularity of tho Opposition in the United States

The Bluebird.
You may expect him any time after the
sun passes the winter solstice. In his
musical engagements it is ml a matter of
dates, hut opportunity. It is never a matter of importunity. Who ever heard a
bluebird's song out of seas' n? It may be
cold and snowy to-morrow, but bis wings
tremble in the nervous ecstasy of the present, and he sings ol the bit of spring that
now is. When the storm comes then he is
silent. He may dee before its breath, or,
if it is late iu the season, he will fold his
wing, unstring his lute, and uncomplainingly wait till the vernal sun and wind shall
come again. But let the merest slit of sunlight gash the cloud, ami he warbles forth
his greetings. He has been accused of trying to force the season.   But it is not that.
I found a group once shivering against a
March snow-storm, late as the sun was
sinking, and stopped to watch them, inlying iheir distress. Suddenly there "was
some commotion, which I attributed to my
presence am' scrutiny���a low conversational chatter, a quivering of wings, a few Hitting changes of position, and then a gurgle
of spring melody among the snow-drops.
Astonished, I turned to where tho sun
should be, and there, on the horizon's rim,
its half-disk was burning like a beacon.
Two minutes later it was out of sight, the
air was gloomy, the snow fell on, but the
morrow was a bluebird day, indeed.
Progress of the Bible.
Nothing In the triumphs of science or in
the history of literature matches the progress of the Bible. How it was originally devised no one knows. Commentators cannot
authenticate beyouu cavil a page of its
contents. Its age is wholly unknown. The
identity of the authorship ot many of its
chapters remains unsuspected. No other
work has been so critically tested. No
other has suffered equally from ignorance
and superstition. Yet age after age it has
progressed in the world. Cherished by the
early Christians, manual labor delighted in
reproducing its sacred texts and artistic
hands in numberless cloisters illuminated
its margins. Diverse as must have been
the fountains whence its streams have
(lowed, it been ne the great well of modern
religious thought. Full of apparent contradictions, the church of the middle ages
made it the basis of comprehensive sacred
science, and by logi ��� surpassing the skill of
antiquity deduced from it a compact and
formidable body of dogmatic creed which
continues to hold its place in - practical
world. When revolt oi-er.ook the ancient
church every seceder iron her dominion
carried the Bible along as hi, dearest treasure, When printing became tho preserver
and disseminator of literature lhe Bible became the most popular of bocks. It is now.
There is every reason for believing that it

In Many Cases llie Same Impulses Control
Tlu-lr Anions.
The impulses and motives which lead to
the commission of crimes are essentially the
same in beasts and in man, and students olf
penal jurisprudence are just beginning to
iearn that the psychology of criminality in
civilized society can never be fully under
stood except by a careful scientific study of
it, not only in savages, but also in the lower
animals. Many actions, such as the killing
of deformed or sickly infants and of
old and infirm individuals, are common to barbarians and to beasts
and are regarded as right because
they contribute to the collective strength
and consequent safety of the tribe or herd ;
but with tlie civilization of man and the domestication of the brute this precaution is
no longer needed and the primitive practice
is abandoned. Mice tako excellent care of
their aged, blind, or otherwise helpless kin,
concealing them in safe places and providing them with food. It must be remembered, however, that the mouse has lived in a
semi-domestic state as the companion of
man from time immemorial. In the development and organization of social and civic-
life the bee and the ant held the foremost place among articulates, corresponding
to that of man among vertebrates.   They

mney : cussing problems which no rir.ite mind can
oseow, the | solve.   And, after all, we do know the two
great causes which act as the principal factors in turning birds twice a year into feathered pilgrims.   One cause is climate,  the
other cause is food.   A bird like the fieldfare, although hardier than its first cousin,
thrush, is nevertheless unable to bear
rigors of a northern  winter, and  so
j travels southward as soon as  the  leaves
: begin to fall.   .Sometimes even our winter is
[ too severe for its constitution, and then it
travels farther still, and spends just a few
days with us on its return journey in the
spring.   The swift, on the' other baud, a
native of Northern Africa, can not endure
the heat of a tropical summer, and so flies
away northward in time to escape the pitiless scorching of an almost equatorial sun.
Probably no bird is so sensitive to extremes
of heat and cold.   It leaves its  home to
avoid ihe heat, and yet sutlers terribly if
the air be chill in the land of its temporary
sojourn.   Often and often have swifts been
picked up dying and dead in the later days
of an English spring, chilled through and
through by a biting northerly  wind, or
frozen by lhe cold blast which comes with
tlie hail of a vernal thunder stoim.
The question of food, of course, is dependent upon that of climete. Autumn frosts
begin, anil the insects disappear, and so the
birds which prey upon those insects are
perforce obliged to depart, driven hence not
only by stress of weather, but also by want
of food. But again, although our British
Islands can not supply the swallow, and the
swift, and the nightjar with the insects
which they need, they can supply the redwing and the fieldfare with worms, and
snails, and slugs, and hips and haws. And
so we extend hospitality, as it were, to one
class of birds, although compelled to refuse
it to another, and the autumnal exodus is
balanced by an autumnal immigration.
Much the same order is preserved by these
travelling birds, both in their arrival and
departure. The chiff-chaff and the willow-
warbler ("hay-bird," the rustics call him)
are generally the first to come, and usually
the last to go. .Sometimes one sees them
even in the gusty days of March, and they
linger on until the "first frosts of autumn
bring down the last remaining leaves from
the trees. Close upon them follows the
active little sand-martin, bound for the
steep, saft-walled quarries wherein it can
scoop out its odd little burrows with little
exertion, and not much fear of molestation.
i Then one notices a house-martin or two,
pioneers of the host which will appear a few
days later ; and then the fork-tailed swallows come ; and last of all lhe swifts, which
are seldom to be seen before lhe latter end
of May.
The old ideas about these birds and their
"hibernation" still linger, it seems, in some
country districts. "One here" (Konigs-
berg), wrote Master George Boukeley somewhere about the year 1620, "iu bis net drew
up a company or heape of swallows as big
as a bushel, fastened by the legs and bills
in one, which, being carried to their stoves,
quickened and fie

The swift is one of the very few birds

as actively as If it had just left its nest after

physique is scarcely susceptible of fatigue,
and the untiring muscles arc like so many

Mr,-Kellio's suggestion to incorporate,
wo- do' not think the Um i is quite
ripo'for'tbut yot. At tho end of tho
coining- 'Spmmer wb' shtdl bo in ti
lielte-'jiusitii'i' to decide on thisques-

spread'herself; this season will cer-
tninly sec the "inception of that pro

'the gateway, for all Canadian trnllic
ut least, into the rich Kootenay mines
ought lu encourage us lo take an
optimistic view of its future. Yv'hen
"the good time coming" is really
come ���Yo shofild lose no time in getting incorporated tiud goiug ahead
With our water supply scheme, grade
our'streets, erect lamps'or electric
light poles; give our tire brigade n

generally.   Bnt let's wait till then.
"My dear sir,���I have been trying
to get nn appropriation to fix up a
good road Irom Iievelstoke to lho
station, but so 'far huve not received
much encouragement. I woidd advise the1 people of Eevelstoke to get
Incorporated, nnd then they could expend on improving the town and
streets whut revenue thoy would raise
from licenses, real estate, eto. This
would amount tio a considerable sum
annually. Please call tho attention
of the'oitizeus 16 ihis matter, What
money is spent this year on lhn road
to the station will havo to coilio oul
