Marlborongh (formerly Mrs. Hameraley, of

timbered with grand old trees."
Mme. Allemandi, who died a few days
ago in Paris,   left   $8,000  to  the Swiss
fovernmenfc^ $20,000 to the city of Basel,
6,000 to the Canton Basel, and $4,000 to
the Canton Solothurn.    The interest of the
money is to be used in paying for the wedding outfits of the daughters of poor Swiss
: laborers.
The regulation India shawl that is Queen
Victoria's stock gift to those brides _, sha

majesty upon the recent marriage of
Princess Marie, of Edinburgh, to the crown

. diadem of diamonds.
COLUMBIAN ECHOES.
^stated that there will be 50,000 ex-
. bibitors at the world's fair.
The JDuke of Veragua, a direct descendant, of Columbus, has been invited by congress to visit the world's fair as the * guest
i.'.of the government.      The invitation has
,v been accepted, and the duke will- probably
d»ail about the middle of April.
Queen Victoria has decided to send-to
|   Chicago in addition to sketches of her own
of Spot,  her terrier,  and Prince Henry's
of the United States with his fine lecture
on "Money and Morals." Here are some
of the lecturer's best sayings:
A man told me last winter that he had
heard I was going to talk on "Money
and Morals" and not having very much of
either he had concluded to come and
hear me.
Money, like everything else in life,
but love and duty, is relative.
A man who has $100,000 of income and
$1^0,000 of wants is worse off than the
fellow who has nothing and wants his
dinner.
Money is the first great material fact
of which life is composed.
I'd about as soon be myself as a gold
mine, for all the good money can do me.
I should hate to think that money is a
positive bar to salvation.
Real life is full of examples of great
expectations come to naught by realization. <*.
Nobody ever made a silk purse of a
bow's ear, though some young people
think it can be done.
We are constantly looking on something tangible in life that, if attained
would make us the most wretched of
creatures.
Success in life is happiness. Happiness
is a creation of the mind and not of the
pocket or of the stomach.
I don't believe that every man who
has come short in his accounts is a scoundrel; In case of official misdemeanor
how often it all comes because the pub

The Slocan Times evidently wants
to get the Fire Wardens of its tows
in trouble, judging from a recent
law-bespattered article on fire protection. A few parties own lots in the j Revelstoke
town that are not cleared and the J.
P. editor thinks they should be cleared, or the owners fined. He is probably fishing for a job to fine some
person, and win back the laurels he
lost when he tried the brick case.
^The editor of this paper owns one
of the lots in question, and desires to
leave the trees standing, so. that .q<ibI-u^AJN1 AYB. ; -

the Narrows, provided the government will guarantee loss against hog

It is dangerous to wear a nightshirt
in a railroad camp. A man attired
in one of those garments of civilization was taken for a ghost in a camp
a5: Wilson creek a few nights ago.
He got uu during thr- night, and a
wakeful railroader pelted him with
boots under the impression  that he
. was a spook who had come down
with Gable's rain, as nothing: of the
- kind had been seen in any ofthe
camps since the road began.
Byron White, J, A. Finch, and
several other mining men were here
