to bo feared that speculators, laborers, men without auy particular occupation, too many traders aud soon
will form a largo proportion of those
making the rush. Thore are uo internal resources iu the Kooteuay district sufficiently developed as yet lo
support a largo population, which

" Well, fattier, what kind of a inci-tin'
did you have last night ? " asked Fanner
Lowe's wife.
" Jest splendid, mother ; the limise was
chuck full. '
" Uow was llie order'; Any hettcr'n
-��� No. I don't knew its it was. Them
young scalawags as have been carrying on
so high played oil'sonic o' their capers agin
lasl night, They took a quilt onto' l'cto
Riley's wagon and wrapped il round one o'
me muddy wheels and then sot ihe brakes
on : and llie samo buys look Tom Sanders'
tine span o' nudes out o' his wagon and put
Joe Wood's old oxen in. It does look's if
.Satan's a-gnin' to have his share up thar."
''llear, dear! 1 do hope them wicked
boys'll be brought into the fold before the
meetin' closes," .Mrs. Lowe said.
" 1 want you to go up to-night, mother;
thar is lo be a new preacher thar. I think
Jennie's cold is we'll enough to t' wont hurt
"A new preacher?   What's his name?"
" They gin it out as Johnson."
"Johnson! Wonder if it's our Johnson,
" I thought o1 that, but it's not likely.
Johnson isa common name."
"Well, I'll go up to-night, It's only a
quarter of a mile there, and 1 don't think it'll
hurt Jennie a bit."
The above conversation took placo in
Farmer Lowe's kitchen. The protracted
meetings now being held at " Union Meeting House" had been in pro-Trees for about
two weeks,and were gathering great crowds.
But the conduct of some nf the large boys
caused no little trouble and anxiety. Efforts
had been made lo find out who the guilty-
ones were, but they were cunning, and bv
some means had avoided detection so far.
Farmer Lowe's family consisted of himself,
his son Calvin, and littlo daughter Jennie,
seven years nf age. Ho was one of the stand-
bys of the neighborhood, Tolerably well to
do, kind, and of cheerful disposition, always
ready and willing to hold out a helping
hand, his friends numbered many.
His son Calvin was fifteen years old He
was oik- of these easy-going sort of people
in whom there lies great capaoityfor good
or evil, when that dormant power is once
fully roused. As yet no one seemed to have
any particular influence ever him unless I
was jjjj litde sister Jennie. She had always
bcei'. a delicate child, but of a most lovely
disposition, and in her Calvin's d epesl
atiections were centered. No sacrifice was
too great to secure her comfort,and he found
his greatest enjoyment in ministi ring
" Calvin, your pa wants you to go over to
Greeley's and take that n-oss-cut saw home
before you go to the meetin'," said Mrs.
Lowe that evening, as she brushed oul
ni"'- curls.
" All right, mother: I'll be
minute,   Good   y,
again till 1 ������ tote j
back after meetin     ti       I

When Lowe, lis v

" GneBs I'd bottor go In, boys, Much

"Oh, let thn goody-goody fellow alone,
Jack ! We hain't got no iibo for cowards
out here,' said Alf Lay, one of the young
ruffian's irucstfollowcis.
11 Don't you call mo no coward, Alf Lay,
for I might nuke you change your mind!''
Aud in a twinkling Alf felt a grasp of iron
on his shoulder,
'No offence meant, Calvin; can't you
take a joke';" said Alt, in a tone of voice
that plainly showed what kind of material
he wus made of.
1 lie careful who you joke with and how
you joke, then, or you may make trouble for
yourself," said Calvin, as he turned his back
on the crowd.
Hut again he was stoppod by Jack, who
said in a persuasive voice,���

in with us this once, and see if you don't get
more real fun out here in one night than
you do in there in a week."
" Oh, 1 couldn't, Jack ; you mustn't ask
me,"said Calvin, drawing buck from Jack's
hand, which had been laid on his arm.
" Now, Calvin, confess you're just a
leetle bit afraid to join us," said Jack, in a
sneering tone. " Come, don't be a booby,
but show the boys that you can be us brave
as them."
" But that's not brave, boys, to do as you

The new preacher had come in a buggy,
and the boys' evil plan was to take all the
nuts that held the vehicle in place off the
ends of the axles, and then hide themselves
and watch the result. The moon didn't rise
till late, and in the darkness the thing could
be easily done without fear of detection.
"I don't feel a bit rightabout it boys.
For a little I'd go and put them nuts back
again ;" said Calvin, while they were waiting on the roaiL.dc for the fun to begin.
The boys had beeu sufficiently cunning to
put the greater part of their work upon
Calvin and a hard enough time had they of
it : too hard to bo balked of their sport,

said Jack, laying a detaining hand on his

During the long, sad days and nights
when the young life hung between this and
another world, poor Calvin suffered agonies
of mind us keen as the bodily sufferings endured lay his little sister. His white face
an i anguished eyes were seldom absent from
her bedside, and his grief was so touching
that it drew forth the deepest sympathy of
the many friends and neighbors who came
He had sinned, and swift and terrible
came the punishment, the justice of which
he could not deny. Often during those sad
days and nights would he ask himseli, with
almost intolerable regret, why he had allowed himself to yield to such influonoo. Why,
ah, why will we be so weak when wo should
be strong?
Though Calvin lived to be a good and
famous man, he carried through his life the
marks of that last greatest sin of his. It
casta cloud over him that he ielt till his
last day.
Jennie lived, but she was a helpless cripple all her days. Calvin devoted his life
to her care, Never was it brother more devoted to a sister, and ho was rewarded by
her deepest love and gratitude, In him
she saw perfection. She never knew the
part he had in the work of that terrible
night. No one ever knew but his father and
mother and his companions in sin, The boys,
even among themselves, never spoke of lhe
terrible results of their conduct, but by
tacit consent agreed that thoy had gone far
enough in tlie pursuit of wicked pleasure.
And never again did the poople of Union
Meeting House have cause to complain of
bad conduct.

(.a inc.
The only really dangerous game of this
continent, says Theodore Roosevelt, is the
grizzly bear. It is true that the cougar will
under very exceptional circumstances assail
the hunter, and so will ths bull moose if bis
pursuer blunders too near him ; but with
both of these animals the element of danger
is so small that it may be practically disregarded. Willi the grizzly it is different,
Any man who makes it practice of hunting
this great shaggy mountain king must make
up his mind that on certain occasions he will
have to show nerve and good shooting in
order to bring down a charging bear. Still,
the danger has become much exaggerated.
The average grizzly has but one idea when
he sees a man, and that is to get away ; it
will run as ipiickly as a rabbit. Even when
wounded a great many bears absolutely refuse to light, seeking refuge only in flight.
Nevertheless, there are
PLENTY OK (illlZZl.ll's
that will light when cornered, and there arc
a very few which will take the offensive
themselves without any particular provocation.
Personally 1 have never been charged but
once, and Ihis was by a grizzly which I had
twice wounded and had approached In wilhin forty yards of, late one evening when I
had strolled away from camp more with the
hope of knocking off the head of it grouse
than with the expectation of seeing any
larger game. This bear came at me most
resolutely, although one of my shots nicked
tho point of his heart, and although one of
the four bullets which I put into him would
have ultimately proved mortal.
All of the other bears I have killed start.-d
to run or fell at the first fire, so thai thoy
had no chance ot showing tight. It is, however, very unsafe for a man to generalize ill
any kind of shooting, and particularly in
bear shooting, merely from his own experience. Thus, I know one gentleman, an officer of the army, who has killed six grizzlies
three of them charging him before they were
wounded or even fired al.
of the three charges were curiously al ke,
that is, he stumbled on the bear in each ease
at tolerably close quarters, at from ten to
twenty yards away from hiin, and each lime
the instant, the animal saw him it galloped
toward him like a locomotive, only to be
rolled over by a well-placed rifle ball.
The grizzly is very tenacious of life, and
so great are his vitality and pugnacity that
a (killing bear will continue charging when
its body is fairly riddled with bullets. A
shot in the brain or spine will of course bring
one down ill its tracks, but even a bullet
through llie heart will not prevent an enraged grizzly from making good its charge
at close quarters.
A man was once killed near my ranch hy
a grizzly under peculiar circumstances. He
wus one of a couple of men who had been
coming down the Little Missouri on a raft
in the time of the freshets. They stopped
at our ranch to get lunch. Both of them
were rather hard-looking customers. When
they had eaten their fill they pushed off
their raft again and continued down stream;
but a couple of days later one of them turnod up with the information that the other
had been
KILLED  l'.V .1  I1K.IR.
They had seen the animal and had followed
it into a little basin or valley less than a
hundred yards across and filled with dense
underbrush. Their utmost endeavors failed
to enable litem to catch a glimpse of the
bear in thi* thick cover, und after circling
round and round and throwing stones into
it to no purpose, one of the men announced his intention of crawling in after
the bear. His companion remonstrated
with him in vain, and in he went on all fours,
dragging his rifle after him and peering
ahead in the gloom among the dark, twisted
stems of the young growth, Before he bad
gone a dozen yards he came right on the
bear, so close at hand that he had neither
time to shoot nor so much as call out before
the great paw of the bear smashed in his
skull iikoan eggshell, His companion finally got the body out, but the bear eseapod
sera toilless.
The best way to hunt the grizzly is with a
pack of thoroughly trained large and fierce
dogs. Ordinary hounds not specially trained for the work are valueless, being entirely
unable to hold the great animal at bay; and
it is exceedingly difficult to eetapack which
can do really effective work. In fact, I know
of but one or two such packs. The only
legitimise methods of hunting the bear ordinarily in vogue are still-hunting propor.itnd
lying iu wait al a bait, In still-hunt ing one
goes abroad early ill the morning or lato in

where the bear is likely to be found feeding,

In spile of the great bulk, formidable teeth

one who did nol possess the clue of Ariadne.
The slopes by which we ascended were

When the shaft was carried away the seit

The literary career of .Miss Sara Jeanette
Duncan (now .Mrs. Cotes), commenced with
newspaper work undertaken as a stepping-
stone to something higher. She Iirst wrote
descriptive letters from New Orleans, the
year of the Cotton Centennial, for the Toronto Globe, the Buffalo Courier, the Memphis Appeal and other papers; she afterwards had the benefit of actual experience
on the editorial stall'of the Washington Post,
whose editor often " slushed " and severely
criticised her most aspiring copy. At the
end of a year in Washington, .Miss Duncan
went to Toronto, where she was on the staff
of the Globe. She afterwards spent a season
at Ottawa as special correspondent of the
Montreal Star.
.Miss Duncan was born twenty-nine years
ago in I'.riuitford, Out., and was educated
in thc public school and Collegiate Institute
of her own native town. Her father is a
prosperous merchant of Brantford, and a
man of keen intelligence and wide reading.
Her mother, from whom Miss Duncan's
faculty of humor is inherited, is quickwitted
and Irish. Their family is a large one, und
their homo a high, pleasant, old-fashioned

A famous Brooklyn clergyman was once
addressing a Sunday school on lhe lesson of
the day, which happened to be "Jacob's
Ladder," He gol along swimmingly until
it littlo urchin in ono of tho back seals
squeaked out i "Why did the angels have
to have a ladder when lliey bad wings."
After the Inevitable laugh had subsided,

Texas, Colorado, Massachusetts and New
Hampshire joined together. Yet it has
been all but overlooked by man, and may be
said to be an empire with only one waggon
road, and that is but a blind artery halting
in the middle of the country. Hut whoever
follows this necessarily incomplete survey of
what man has found that region to be, and
of what his yet puny hands have drawn
from it, will dismiss the popular and natural
suspicion that it is a wilderness worth of its
present fate. Until the whole globe is
bunded with steel rails and yields to the
plough we will continue to regard whatever
region lies beyond our doors as wasteland,
and to fancy that evey line of latitude has
its own unvarying climatic characteristics.
There is an opulent civilization in what we
once were taught was " the Great American
Desert," and far up at Edmonton, on the
Peace river, farming flourishes despite the
fact that it is where our school-books located a zone of perpetual snow.
Farther along we shall study a country
crossed by the same parallels of latitude
that dissect inhospitable Labrador, and we
shall discover that as great a difference exists between the two shores of the continent
on that zone as that which distinguishes
California from .Massachusetts. Upon the
coast of this neglected corner of the world
we shall see that a climate like that of Eng-
land is produced, ns England's is, by a warm
current in the sea; in the southern half of
the interior wc shall discover valleys as inviting as those of New England; and far
north, at I'ort Simpson, just below the down-
reaching claw of Alaska, we shall find such
a climate as Halifax enjoys.

For the informal ion of readers generally,
and more especially those in the country
who may have never seen the great M-lro-
polis, a tew facts about "lhe first oity in the
world," will prove interesting, Loudon
muy be said to be a little world iu itself, for
there are men ot all countries and climes iu
it. Vou meet with every variety of human
opinion and human oharaoter within its vast
Oiroumferenoe, and there is no other Metropolis in the world which can, in this respect,
' e compared with it. It is computed thai
there are, on an average, nearly 500,000
strangers at all times, slaying only for a few
days, in London. The number of Scotchmen
supposed to be in London, is 250,000, being
within a few thousand of the population of
inbiirgh. The number of Irishmen is
computed al 450,000, being nearly equal to
the population of Dublin, The number of
foreigners in the Metropolis is calculated to
be about iiOO.OOO.
We have often been struck with the circumstance of meeting with so few persons,
comparatively, who were born ill the Metropolis. Take any fifty grown np individuals
witli whom you happen to be in company,
and the probability is you will not Hint moro
than one or two who Iirst drew their breath
in London. So very few is the number of
those born in the Metropolis, compared with
those who have coino from some other part
of the world to settle in it, that, if two persons chance to be speaking about a third,
the one is sure, as a matter of course, to ask
the other what part of the country he comes
from, provided he supposes his friend citn
furnish him with the desired information.
Perhaps there is no place iu the world
which so frequently changes its inhabitants as London. They are constantly shifting. It is computed that on an
average a hundred thousand people enter il
daily, while nearly an equal number depart
from it, conveyed in 2,200 trains, the number
which leaves London every twenty-four
i hours. It is like a great voitex, drawing
! persons from all parts of the world into it,
and, after whirling Litem about a short time,
1 again throwing them out. Cue large class
j of persons come to it on business, and when
| that is done, return Is the country. Others
i come in quest of employment, and, not
being successful in the search, quit it for
some other part of tho kingdom or of the
world. A third class visit the Metropolis
for purposes of pleasure, and probably remain in it as long as iheir money lasts
which few men of pleasure find to be any
very lengthened period, aud then return
home, to lament their folly, with the addition, it may be, of a shattered frame to an
empty pocket; while there is a very large
class of persons who come to it from every
part of the country on their way to the
various quarters of the globe, because it
has facilities peculiar to itself, for starting
to every spot of the habitable world. Supposing a person were to walk up and down
Cheapside for a whole day, and it were possible for him to have a perfect recollection
of the distinctive features of every human
face he saw, he would be surprised, on repeating the task a month afterwards, at
the vast disproportion of the persons he had
seen before and those who now passed him
fer the first time.
Two acquaintances maybe in London for
forty or fifty years without ever meeting
together by accident in the streets. I myself know persons, who in their schoolboy
days in the country were bosom companions,
who have been forty years in town without
once crossing each other's paths. In 1881,
the population of London, i. e.. the Registrar-General's area, amounted to 3,815,-
514, and at present it is no less than 4,201,-
156. This total does not include the population of the suburban districts of London,
which though not in the Registrar-General's
area, are ycl within the police district. Including the suburbs, the population is 5,-
637,332. As to the wealth of London, there
exists no data for coining to a positive conclusion ; but a conjecture may be made on
the subject when we mention that the yearly rental exceeds .'ill million pounds. The
houses in London are almost all built of
bricks of a dark-brown colour. The only
exceptions are the churches, and some
others of the principal public edifices, which
are built of Portland and other stone.
Generally speaking, the houses are plainly
built, and no attempt is made at ornamenting the exterior. The height does not
usually exceed three or four stories, and the
rooms are mostly small. The walls are remarkable for their thinness. One cannot
help wondering that with such slender walls
the houses should last, as they often do, for
upwards of two hundred years.

Woit'lorful Progress.
The Rev. Wilberforce Leo went out to
West Central Afrioa nearly two years ago
after completing his college studies in this'
city. I,:i-.i Bummer, .Miss Agnes Carter, of
Cowansville, his promised wife, sailed for
Africa with Mr. and a\lrs. Fay, returning
missionaries of the American Hoard. The
wedding took place on landing. Mrs. Fay
describes the ceremony in a letter published
in Life and Light:
M r, Lee and M iss Cart er were married I bu
day we arrived (Aug. 1(1), and a more novel
wedding I never witnessed. First we had a
great time getting baggage on t of the Custom
1 rouse, for, of course, the bride wanted her
wedding dress at least. We arrived at Ben-
giiella at 11 a. ill., and at .'i p. m. the bride
was arrayed for the occasion, looking very
sweet in white muslin and orange blossoms.
We all went to the Governor's house, and he
performed the ceremony according to the
Portuguese law. He read it few articles out
of a big book, asking Mr. Sanders to interpret as he read, which .Mr. Sanders did.
aS'one of us knew whether this was the ceremony, or whether he was explaining what the
ceremony was to be. Mr. Sanders thinking
that perhaps it was the ceremony, motioned Miss (.'alter, who was seated on tho
lounge, to stand, which she did; Mr. Lee
was already standing, The Governor immediately motioned her to be seated again, so
we all concluded it was not the ceremony
after all. liut after more reading out of the
big book the Governor informed us that the
ceremony was over. Of course we all smiled, some of us audibly, but none of us could
yet realize that Miss Carter had been transformed into Mrs Lee. All that remained
was for the bride and groom to sign their
names in a book giving the names of their
parents and grandparents. The Governor
then invited us all into his music room,
where the bride was invited to play on the
piano, and the groom followed by playing
the wedding march. Then the Governor
asked ns all to sing, but wc were obliged to
decline, not feeling very well prepared for
the occasion. He then sat at the piano to
do his part of the entertaining, and this ended lhe first part of the ceremony.
In the evening the Christian part was performed by Mr. Fay. This time the bride
and groom both stood, and alter the usual
marriage ceremony was over il was easier for
us all to believe that they were really married. The Governor and others of the elite
of Beuguolla came in for refreshments, consisting of custard, and collee, and the wedding cake brought from America, The tired
wedding party were glad enough when, at
last, the Governor was ready to take his departure, as we had spent theovening singing
for his benefit and listening to his playing
on the baby organ.
The next day we went right to work getting the Lees ready for their trip inland, and
after they wero gone, the same preparations
of baking, packing, etc., for ourselves.
In the Missionary Herald Mr. Lee describes the journey inland to Chisaniba, thc station occupied by Canadian missionaries. He
says i���
" From Bailundu to Chisambu took up. a
week, travelling by easy stages. We had
several African thunderstorms during lhat
time, but, being well equipped for such emergencies, did not suffer from them, terrific
though they were Our arrival at Chisamba
was a real ovation, by Mr. Currie, his boys,
and Chisambites, and as were both in the
bestof health and spirits wo much enjoyed it.
It made us feel that notonly were we glad to
have arrived safely at our African home, but
also that our arrival was hailed with
delight by all interested. I should have said
that in addition to taking a good supply of
wholesome food from Benguella, we were
unusually fortunate in being able to buy
plenty of chickens, eggs, sweet potatoes,
and bananas on the road. At Ocipeta the
chief presented us, on our visiting his
ombalit (head village,) with a fine goat, so
so that ourselves and men might have a feast
of fresh meat.
"I wish 1 could give you some idea of
the changes wrought in this station during
my absence, but to do justice to that subject will require another letter. All I can
now say is that, though I expected great
improvement and progress, and had heard
reports of much that had been done, I had
no idea that I should find such grand signs
of thorough progress as I have witnessed. I
could not have believed it possible for one
man to have accomplished what Mr. Currie
Iiii3 succeeded in doing. If our friends at
home could only see with their own eyes the
progress made in building, draining, gardening, iu the school and evangelistic work,
and in thc large medical work, their hearts
would go up to God in joyful praise ami
thankfulness, their appreciation of
Currie would be greatly increased,
their purse-strings opened widely for
assisting of this glorious work."

Rat Piucr.tiiK, Ont,, Jan,���Two Indians
hunting noar the Lake of the \V Is came
across a band of moose, consisting of an old
bull and a cow and twoeulves. The Indians
were armed with old gnus and knives. Ono
shot at the bull moose and hit the animal
iu the shoulder, wounding him in such it
manner that he could not run fast. Thoy
ran afler him, firing again and again, but
with no success, until at hist the moose
turned upon them, and as they had followed closely, they had but little time get out
of his way.
The moose rushed at the Indians, and one
of them, as he turned to get away, tripped
on a root and fell at the feet of the ei raged
brute. He nl once trampled and cut the
mun with his hoofs in a most terrible
manlier, and did not leave him until life
wus extinct. Meanwhile the other Indian
wus doing ull in his [lower to save his companion and was stabbing the moose with his
knife, having discarded the gun as being
useless for fear it might hurl the man who
was down.

It is only a few nnnllis since Prince Ru-

In China suicide has been a fine art for
several centuries. If a Mandarin is guilty
of misconduct he is requested to put himself out of the laud of the living. There is
a distinction, too, in the manner in which
the Oriental may die. If he is of exalted
rank, and entitled to wear the peacock
feather, he is privileged to choke himself
to death with gold leaf.
This is regarded asa distinguished manner
of ending life. If the Mandarin is only of
the rank that is entitled to wear the red
button, he must be content with strangling
himself with a silken cord. Such are the
distinctions of easte. One of the most remarkable cases of suicide was that of thc
King of l'ulaha on the West Coast of Africa.
The king was attacked by a Mohammedan
force, and, finding resistance impossible, he
assembled his family and principal officers,
and, after addressing them and intimating
his determination never to accept Mohammedanism, and inviting those who did not
agree with him to go away, he applied a
light to a large quantity of gunpowder collected for the purpose, and
Suicides among the aristocracy in England are rather numerous. The suicide of
the Duke of Bedford in January last shocked society circles of both continents. H
was one of the largest landed proprietors in
England, immensely wealthy, and was
seventy-two years of age. Lying on a sick
bed, from which he had no promise of immediate recovery, he succumbel to the
agony of the moment and sought relief in
death. The fact thut it was a suicide was
carefully concealed from the newspapers,
but the secret leaked out after the body had
been cremated. Lord Congleton, who was
Mr. Pamell's great-uncle, hanged himself in
184'.'. In the same year the Earl of Monster shot himself in the head. In 1SII9 Lord
Cloncurry, the last of his house, jumped

Commercial disaster to any member of the
