Speaking of the toll gate near th*
'pool, whloh was the last on the old Boston and Albany line to be torn down, recalls to memory an amusing incident
which old Dr. Straw, its keeper, used to
relate.
Shaw used to travel with an old ventriloquist by the name of Potter somo
years before he began to tend tbe gate,
and he was a pretty clever magician, the
doctor was. so tlie two hitched up well
together.
Well, the story goes that Potter and
Shaw were riding in 'Iteub' Underwood's
coach over the Mormon aad Southbrldge
line, and the vehicle was crowded with
passengers who considered themselves
pretty high toned folks, and I guess they
really were.
At any rate when tho stage arrived
at Southbrldge tbey ail got out and went
Into the tavern there to get dinner. The
party sat down at the tablo and Potter,
tbe ventriloquist, who was a stranger to
all excepting Shaw, camo in after taking
• sip of "toddy" aud sat down also at the
same table. A roast pig was brought in
on a platter by the servant and set upon
tbe table, and just alter one member of
tha party had finished saying grace and
began carving the pig, lt squealed terrifically, and the majority of the members of the party not knowing that
Potter wo* a ventriloquist, as I said,
thought for a moment that the pig was
alive, and after screeching and screaming, the carver simultaneously throwing
his knife and fork across the dining
room, got up and left the table, leaving
Potter and Shaw to finish the pig.—

He Still Uvea.
He stood on the steps of the City Hall
yesterday and blew Ida nose and wiped
his eyes and steadied himself by one of
the stone columns, and when he waa
asked if ba were ill ho replied;
"Vou b«t I'm ill! 'Tain't in the body,
but right here—right here in the heart!"
"Are you subject to heart trouble?"
"Youbetl Heart's alius been troubled.
That's why I drink."
"Bave you been drinking*"
•"Course I have. I'm three drinks
high. That's why I cry. When 1 get
about half drunk I feel so sad and lonesome that I wouldn' give a frozen banana to live another day."
"Do you feel that way now?"
'■I do. I don't care to live another
minute. I'd welcome death'with outstretched arma!"
"Poor tnaol"
'■Dontl Sympathy alius breaks me
down. Three drinks and a few Und
words make a child of me. Please go
away and let me stand here and freeze to
death. I'm no good on earth. I want
to die,"
The policeman on duty in the lower
corridor was informed of the case, and
he went out and gavo the man the collar. Presto changol He had scarcely
got bold of him when the sorrowful
hearted began to resist In the most vigorous m inner, and as he waa finally
landed in the patrol wagon he called
out: "Old fel, I've got my eye on you,
and I want to live a thousand years to
get even!"—Detroit Free Press.
Gen. Sherman at the  Play.
Most peoplo are aware tbat Gen. W. T.
Sherman Is a resident of New York, and
She id one of the most tireless of
te goers. He Is a flrst nighter, and
ly a conspicuous figure on an aisle
or In a proscenium box. A pecu-
of the general's is that be seems to
that any one besides himself is in
theatre. He talks to his companion
about the people on the stage in a tone of
voice easily audible up in the balcony.
He coughs, clears his throat, blows hi*
nose with a sound like a steam whistle,
and actually bellows out his remark,
without regard of his surroundings. The
other night st one of the fashionable
house* he broke m upon a perfectly silent bit of stage action, which was being
worked out by a young actress, with the
stentorian praise of:
"She's going to make an actress."
Everybody near him stared and the*
laughed. The general did not appear to
be aware he had been heard, coughed,
blew his nose audibly, and then settle!
back into his big collar with a bud grunt
of utter contentment. At that theatre,
where everybody knows the old warrior,
his rumbling interruptions are accepted
good naturedly.— New York Letter to

RETRENCHMENT IM FOREIGN OFFICE.
London, May 28.—In the House of
Commons this evening Edmund Robertson, Liberal member from Dundee,moved
to reduce the Foreign Office vote. The
purpose of tbe motion being to take judgment of the House in the mutter of
the absence of Lord Lytton, British Ambassador to France, Irom the opening
ceremonies of the Paris Exposition. The
withdrawal of Mr. Robertson it is
thought, was the result of a pre-arrange-
ment in view of ths simultaneous action
of representatives of other powers ordering their representatives to hold aloof
from the ceremonies.
LORD LYTTON EXCUSED.
Sir Jus. Ferguson, Under Secretary for
Foreign Affairs, denied that Lord Lytton V
absence was due to any pre-arrangement
with the Continental Governments. The
House, he said, was of the opinion tbat
England should not take part in the
celebration of the Centenary of a Revolution regarding which parties in France
remained bitterly divided. When factions
were unanimous in the celebration of a
great event, there was no impropriety
in the Queen's representative lieing
present. As in the cifse of the celebra-
t'on of the Centenary of the Independence of America, but there was no
analogy between France and America.
Furthermore there was no.disBntisfaction
in France at tlie absence of Lord Lytton
fromthe opening ofthe Exhibition. Gladstone-said he acquitted the Government
of acting in concert with the other
powers in the matter, but thought the
Government wns blamable for its error
of judgment. Lord Lytton ought to have
been present.  Motion rejected 283 to 190.

Sun Francisco, May 28,—A dispatch
from Victoria to-day, stating that the entire British fleet now in British Columbian waters will shortly proceed to Behring Sea created considerable discussion
among naval officers here. The Chronicle thinks that President Harrison's
proclamation declaring the eastern half
of Behring Sea a closed sea docs not warrant Great Britain in sending men-of-
war into that sea to defend Britisli sealers by force of arms. "All the seals that
ever were, or will be taken in Behring
Sea" it says, "are not worth the risk ol
a serious rupture with England, and yet
if so grave u matter is committed to the
care of subordinates who can do nothing
but obey orders wc may find ourselves
involved in actual war before we know
it."

Chicago, Muy 28.—Tbe Grand Jury
after seven hours in session, indicted
Detective Coughlin, P. 0. Sullivan, a
Lakcview iceman, and F. Black, for tbe
wilful murder of Dr. Cronin.
Chicago, May 28.—Later advires say,
on absolute authority, that the police
have become certain that instead of only
a few lieing connected with Dr. Cronin's
murder, there are
AT   LEAST   A   SCORE   IMPLICATED.
Among these are eight of the most prominent Irish Nationalists in the city.
These men are shadowed day and night.
Among the best known is Alexander
Sullivan, ex-President of thc
IRISH   NATIONAL   LAND   LEAGUE
of America, This Sullivan is closely
watched wherever be goes. The Chief
of Police says there is only a single fact
among ull the indirect evidence that
points to Sullivan as being implicated.
His friends say the talu is fabricated by
men whom be has opposed in secret circles for years. Tha New York Herald
reiterates the charge as to the Clan nu
Gael removing Cronin on tbe ground of
being u British spy after u formal trial
and conviction. It is known a trial committee was rnipaniielled though no name
transpired, only evidence given. The
utmost secrecy is observed in choosing a
committee. ('barges were preferred
against Cronin of being a British spy.
He was found guilty by n unanimous vote

REVELATION   CONCERNING   DR.   CKON1.N.
Chicago, May 28.—it uow appears
that Peter McGeebau was at Pullman
the night of Cronin's murder and could
not bave taken part in the crime. Tin-re
are a liumborol i'ullinaii ami Kensington
people who say that they saw McGoehuii
on the night of pr, Cronin's' disappearance. That the statement of P. O. Sulli-
viiii, the Luke View ice man, who made
a full confession yesterday concerning
his connection with the murder of Dr. P.
B. Cronin and gave to the police the
names of several persoiiB who were im*
plicated in the awful crime, was con-
tinned this morning. Captain Shaack
when asked aliout the matter hesitated,
and finally Baid: "Well, there is no use
in denying it, Sullivan gave ue a good
many valuable pointers but We cannot
give them out now without hurting our
case," Chief Hubbard was questioned
in regard to thc matter, and admitted
that a well known man was being alreadv
watehed, and that while he is at liberty
to go where he chooses in this city, he ia
practically under arrest, and auv attempt
on his part to leave the, c|ty woidd result
in bis being placed twhind the burs.
Chief Hubbard was at wark all night and
wai ut his desk early this morning. He
refused to say whether there luis been
any arreBt made sllico P, O. Sullivan wof
taken into custody, bul from his aianner
it waB inferred that several arrests were
made last night,
l'» Victoria ler Trial.
The man named Franklin who was
brought here fromCowichan last week on
a charge of house breaking was taken to
Victoria vesterday by Constable Stewart
to stand bis trial.

THE   CRAZE FOR JOURNALISTIC
PERSONAL OOSSIP.
One of the annoyances with which famous writers of books have now-n-duys
to put up with, is the infliction of seeing
dally paragraphs of insulting and mendacious tattle on the writer's private affairs. In order to givo offence to "these
minor reptiles of the press," the book-
writer has but to succeed. Frances Hodgson Burnett, in a letter to the New York
Critic, complains of the way in which
these "parographers" have treated her.
We wish we had space and time to make
more lengthy extracts frem the letter to
which we refer. "Even my" (Mrs. Burnett's; "little boys are assailed, as if it
mattered to any human being whether
they" "throw stones at cats" "or not."
"Unhappily," to quote a recent writer in
a great English Review—"remarks which
would sting an honest man or woman
like a blow, only amuse the creatures
who pen or publish their daily tale of
dull malice. To them there is no use in
appealing. The common paragraph-
maker likes to be insulted; he thinks
that it proves he has made himself felt."
"Is it, or is it nol"—asks Mrs. Burnett—
of consequence that a statement published and copied all over the English-speaking countries, is untrue in every word
and detail. Does it, or does it not matter
in the least, that a man or woman who
has done honest and respectable work,
should on that account feel that his other character, good taste, and good manners, may be impugned at so much a line
in any newspaper? Does it not matter
that such an individual cannot live a life
so simple, so Beclnded, and so well-meaning as to escape the most grotesque misrepresentations? I ask these questions
not only for myself, but for a number of
modest, respectable persons who have
had the misfortune to write a popular
book or play, or to occupy a prominent
position." MrB. Burnett goes on to ask
—"when an article is presented at an
editorial office, is its truth or untruth,
its justice or patent malignity, entirely
indifferent to the purchaser ? Will some
journalist of established reputation answer this question? I put it with all
modesty, and respect for journalism."
We have seen it stated that the "best
copy" is gossip; the more personal, the
"better copy." The remedy is not easy
to find, unless prominent"1 men and women eschew such papers as are likely to
contain their names. We have beard of
a pleasure party in a boat being caught in
a storm. "Are you afraid?" said a man
to a little boy. "No," answered the
child; "if I'm drowned my name will
be in the papers." Perhaps, as the ra-
conteur says, this was an extreme instance of the consolation which posthumous fame and the prospect of it can
minister.
A telegram received yesterday states
that the Superintendent of tbe Southern
Pacific Railroad Company complained to
a reporter that business was not nearly
so good as it should be at this time of the
year. ''One ofthe chief causes," be says
"is the competition of tbe Canadian
Pucific." This statement, simple as it is,
shows most conclusively that if the absolute supremacy of '.Sun Francisco as Ihe
city of the Pacific Coast, is not actually
threatened in the near future, yet that
the carrying trade has not yet settled
itself into grooves of any depth. Thero
is talk of fresh lines of steamships to
connect British Columbia with Australia
and Valparaiso. Trade with the Far East
is rapidly Increasing In volume. Looking
these facts in the face, wc think tbat it is
no chimerical dream on the part of the
vice-President of the Canadian Pacific
Railroad, wbon he said years ago that the
largest city on this coast north of San
Francisco would be in British Columbia,
IMPERIAL FEDERA TION.
English telegrams express great hopes
as to tbe future achievements of Earl
Uunraven's yacht "Valkyrie," which it
is fondly hoped may win "tbe cup" from
the United States this year. Her trials
have been remarkably satisfactory. Each
time tbat she has been raced she has
completely out-distanced her competitors,
her time record being also remarkably
good when the state of the weather which
she experienced is taken into account.
Englishmen—it comes to us more naturally than Britons—the world over take
the greatest possible interest in these
periodical contests, though the result has
so far bean rather disheartening. In spite
of repeater I defeats in former years, the
accounts which reach us by wire of the
doings of Earl Dunraven's yacht cause us
to hope that this year the British flag
may pass the judge, ahead of the Stars
nnd Stripes.
Our telegraphic despatches offer no
explanation as to why W. Irving Bishop's
wife offered no opposition at the time, to
the surgeon's autopsy on thc body of ber
husband. If no such opposition were
made, wo don't cpjite see how the case
can be n conflict of medical testimony
during the inquest now pending—We
grant that. There is something horrible
in thc idea put forward by the relatives of
Bishop that he was carved up by the surgeons while alive, although in a trance
so complete as to elude scientific skill.
The only reasons for supposing that this
condition was mistaken for actual death
are that Bishop's mother and sister were
both subject to cataleptic trances, and
his mother in one of them beard preparations being made for her own funeral,
but fortunately recovered sensibility in
time to prevent being buried alive.
Bishop himself lias been known to go
inlo one of those trances, so that there is
a possibility ef the autopsy having been
held too hastily.

HAWTHORNTHWAITE   &   CO.
Loan Brassey has frequently endeavored to make it plain both in Great
Britain and her colonies, that they could
make a better business of it by staying
together, than by flying apart. He has
attempted to show that Canada obtains
an amount of protection as a portion of
the Empire, which it could never get
from it* own strength, sad :.-. return gives
a* the treatment of Um dmst* savored
nation. Australia—be a3«o teJls us—
might cover the flank of India and does
in the meantime treat us a* well as its
Protectionist policy allows it to treat anybody. Lord Brassey is a man who has
been everywhere and done everything,
sxA the seeing and doing has convinced
bim that "union is good, and even closer
anujn is to be desired." This may be all
very well but would be still better if
Loan Bbassey or any of those wbo tbink
with him upon this matter of Imperial
Federation would tell us how it is to be
done. We—and doubtless most of our
readers—have read numberless speeches
and printed articles advocating this
measure, but in no single instance have
we found anyone who can extract this
most valuable information from the Imperial Federation League. Of courso all
are agreed that the union of the Empire
i* to be cherished. But—as-iias been
well pointed out by Lord Brasbky's
critics—how is the Union to be made
closer than it is, and put under a common
Government in which all parts will have
a share ? Suppose that Canada comes to
an open rupture with the United State*
over the Fishery question and that Australia becomes thoroughly aroused over
the Chinese Immigration difficulty.
Great Britain cannot afford to forego her
friendly relations with either America or
China, the latter of which great Powers
■Bay not improbably in the near future,
prove an invaluable ally in the Far East.
The situation may arise at any moment.
If it does, how would Lord Brassey and
his League deal with it? No one nt present, we imagine, wishes for separation,
but, Imperial Federation League notwithstanding, we believe that so far from thc
Mother country binding her Colonies to
her more closely—the tendency is quite
the other way and that at no distant date
a variance of interests will cause those of
her offspring which are the most advanced, to cut the last connecting link
which binds them to Great Britain, and
set up as did the United States of
America, entirely on their own accord.

"Great heavensi What ls tha matterl
Lily, my darling, what is iti Oh, Mr. Buskin, what has happened!"
These words wero uttered by William G.
Simpson aa he entered tbe luxuriously furnished drawing room of Jamas P. Buskin, of
the firm ot Sock ft Buskin, the great theatrical managers. Ha had been engaged to the
lovely daughter of tbe house for only one
week, but, oh, how blissful that period had
been I
And now, what had occurred! His fiancee
was ta teen, and ber father was in the room
to meet him, with sternness upon his brow.
Had the misfortune of William G. Simpson',
earlier life, the awful secret of his youth,
been discovered! He trembled at tht
thought
His worst suspicions were confirmed when
the father spoke.
"Mr. Simpson," he said, "all Is over between you and my daughter. You have
kept back from us a part of your life. Tou
have been accused of orlme."
William Simpson fell upon hla knees, "1
was Innocentl" he cried. "I deolare before
Heaven that I was innocentl"
"That may be," responded the stern old
man; "but my che-Ud shall not go through
life with her name linked to tbat of a man
against whom one breath of suspicion lingers.
Prove your innocence, William G. Simpson,
and all may yet be well What was the
crime of which you were accused!"
"It waa," sobbed the young man, "of—o*
atealing Mile. Blanche de Ballet's diamonds.1'
"My son, my son I How could I ever have
doubted you!" cried James P. Buskin, as ha
fell upou tbe other's neck. "You are innocentl We were advertising her for a summer tour."
"William, my own darling, my love, my
life!" cried Lily, as ber lover pressed her tc
his bosom.—Life.
Precious Water.
Ascension Island cannot be a very desirable place in which to live, if one may
judge from tho following description of
the difficulty of procuring fresh water.
A. B. Kills at the island meets an old
friend, who shook hands, reached down
a coat from a peg and put it on, saying:
"Excuse my not putting on a shirt,
will you?"
"Of course, of course. Take off more
of your clothes, if you'll feel more comfortable."
"N-no, it's not that, but the fact is that
I haven't a shirt clean enough to put on."
I could only murmur my suprlse at
this strange circumstance, and endeavor
to look sympathetic. He went on: "I
dare say you think it odd that I don't
have them washed?"
I thought perhaps he had had some
difficulty with his laundress, had not paid
ber bill, but I could not say that, so I inquired: "Why don't you'r"
He unfolded a horrible tale to the
effect tbat the water supply of tbe island
consists principally of what Is distilled
by a condenser, a small quantity being
obtained from Dampler's Drips and
Brandreth Wells. That water was always so scarce that it waB served out
like a ration of rum, only more sparingly, the allowance in prosperous times
being two gallons a day per man.
When clothes were sent to tbe wash,
the water for washing them had to be
sent wltb tbem. That the condenser had
now been out of order for some nine or
ten days, and everybody on tbe island
had been put on short allowance, so that
they had not enough for drinking, much
less fpr washing either themselves or
their clothes.—Youth's Companion.
Tomatoes lu England.
Americans, accustomed to see tomatoes
In some shape on the table nearly every
day of the year, will scarcely appreciate
how nearly that familiar vegetable comes
to being a rare delicacy In England.
Ten years ago it was an exception to find
this delightful fruit on the tables of any
but the wealthy; but today they are to
be found In most houses during the season, their extensive cultivation having
brought down the price so as to make
them come within the reach of all. The
tomato, or love apple, as it was formerly
called, originally came from South
America, but lt was not until the climate
of the United States was found to be
eminently adapted to their growth that
tbey came into general use, the taste for
the same spreading to Europe.
It is, in addition to its valuable hy-
glenlo qualities, one of the most profitable fruits to cultivate, and we know of
one private gentleman who sends no less
than one ton to market daily in the early
season, the price paid for the same averaging Od. per pound, all of them being
grown under glass. Few come to perfection in the open air, owing to tho
short duration of sunshine in England.
Like the olive, it was a long time before
the people became accustomed to the
peculiar and delicate flavor, but each
day tbey grew in popularity, so muoh so,
Indeed, that Capo Town has been requisitioned for a supply of the same when
tjroy are out of season here.—London

REDEYE'S DEEP GRATITUDE.
How tha Editor of a Paper Won Him aa
a Ufa bang rrlahd.
The great truth tbat position In a newspaper, aa in life, is everything, was brought
home to me very forcibly several years ago,
while acting as editor on a frontier daily
which bad the largest circulation and chattel
mortgage in the territory, which latter fact
has never been successfully contradicted to
this day. The fall crop ol local nominations
were just In, and the nominee for sheriff on
the opposition had a reputation so tough that
44 bullets would flatten against it I felt it
Incumbent on me as a newly laid editor to
point out wherein he was not a suitable man
for the office. I told in a caustic double leaded editorial how he had, while previously
holding some office, taken money from criminals wbo were amateurs compared with himself, and allowed them to escape to Manitoba
or the Northwest territory.
I showed bun up as a thief, a blackmailer
and a gambler, and stated that if rumor ia
not hopelessly wrong he had long had the
run of the ranges as an unconvicted horse
thief. As a man with whom murder was a
pastime, and all round crime a mere relief
from tbe monotony of dispensing poison over
a bar, I believed him unworthy of the con-
fidenceofour best people, and therefore urged
his defeat at the polls. As the editorial waa
a little strong, 1 ventured to show it to the
proprietor. He read it, and said: "H'm; you
can run this If you choose, but you must assume all personal responsibility."
"Certainly," I answered. "I will do so,
but in view of Redeye's record I dont think
there Is any libel suit in it"
"I am not afraid of that and will take all
financial responsibility, but you must shoulder tbe personal responsibility." Ha emphasized the word "personal" ao much that 1
wondered. He then shook hands with me in
a fervid though mournful manner, a proceeding that was unusual, and quietly went out,
as I learned afterward, and telegraphed back
east to St Paul to have another editor tent
on at once. He was a prudent proprietor,
and trusted that the new man would arrive
In time to handle my obsequies and make a
good story out of It We met the next morning at the office, much to hla surprise. Ha
grasped my hand again and asked if I bad
heard from Col Redeye yet There were
several others of the force present. At (hat
instant tbe colonel's voice was beard in the
hallway. It was a moment of sprightly
activity. The meeting dissipated itself with
a suddenness only equaled by tbo adjournment of a female convention wben a mouse
takes tho floor. Every one believed it was a
jose of the quick or the dead, and they proteased to indulge In the former. All remembered somo overdue appointment, to nits
which might cause great monetary loss, and
ono in his haste took tbe window sash wife
him. I was left alono In Innocent tenderfoot
calmness, and the colonel entered.
"You the editor!"
I bad that honor.
"Well, young feller, you're a Mend ol
mine, and I'm not so low down aa to forejit a
friend or forgive an enemy, aa the post saya
Of course you hod to say something ag'in me,
uot being of my party, but you put your little game of talk on tbe inside of aa editorial
If you had put It on the front page, with,
black type for a starter, I might have felt it
my duty to Ull you. But at it is, I appreciate the favor, and nothtn' in my plea* It too
good for you.   Come down and eee ue."
This little event opened ay eyes tp th*
value of the front page as an advartWaf
position, something which Q*n, Boulaaaar

Sbe was very sick and her husband sent for
th* doctor. I think that ladies have so little
to do nowadays that it la a kind of way they
have of amusing themselves—getting sick
and sending for the doctor. I don't believ.
w* will ever bave female doctors to any extent If we dolt will be mainly for children.
Men will never take kindly to female doo-
tors. I suppose it may be an unjust opinion,
but I cant fancy a man being very spoony
with a doctor. Then is a distinct prejudice
in mankind against a woman who has anything ol a practical nature except about th.
house.
He doesn't mind If she can hang pictures
and nail down carpets and sew on buttons,
but a scientific woman ls always viewed with
suspicion. A mala doctor, for instance, al-
waya says it is the liver or the stomach; a female doctor would probably aay tt was the
heart, and ah* would very often be right
The ladles don't want a female doctor. Itii

th* doctor was called In, and, ol course, immediately wrote out a prescription. It was

BUI ICya'a Surprising Adventures Id Com-
pan? with Sir. Riley Hag-gurd.
Many southern people come to St. Paul and
Minneapolis, it is said, in order to escape the
rigors of their own winter. Tbe banana belt,
extending from Dulutb to Winnipeg, reminds
one of tropical Africa. Last week Mr Riley
Haggard and I started out for a little quiet
elephant shooting in the country. Bidding
farewell to tbe concierge at the hotel, we
packed our heavy express rifles and smooth
boro elephant guns, penetrated as far as
th* sleeping car could convey us, and, bidding farewell to our faithful Wan Wunga,
who caressed us both with a whisk broom to
the value of twenty scudi, we hired an elephant apiece and began to permeate tbo jungle, preceded by our trusty bird dog.
At the kraal or livery stable where we engaged our elephants we were told that game
was very plenty about thirty miles across the
dlnglelow, and that in a small forest of jing-
sang trees and hoola bushes quite a covey of
quagga and elephants had been scared up by
a Boer who had penetrated tho jungle accompanied by bis brakje or dog.
The flrst night we camped beneath tbo shade
of a Vienna bread fruit tree ou tho borders of
tbe Karroo, and preventing the escape of our
trusty elephants by attaching their trunks,
we began to prepare our evening meal. 1
read the directions from a book of African
travel, and my very faithful comrade, Mr
Riley Haggard, did tbe cooking.
First refreshing ourselves with a long
draught from a gourd of spoopju from
Peoria, marked 1842, so called because lt is
placed on the market eighteen hours uud
forty-two minutes after it is made, our faithful gun bearer, Ylang Viang, began to carve
the bultong, Meiboss, and jerked muskrat for
the evening meal Making a bright tiro of
karroo bushes and fresh train figs, a wad of
mealies was soon simmering over the coals,
whilo the odor of Cincinnati bultong pervaded the tropical forest.
Ylang Ylang, our faithful valet, who has
made hts name a household word because ot
his search after Schwatka and One Night
Stanley, said that according to the books on
African exploration it was now time to bed
down the elephants. After doing this he returned and proceeded with the cuisine.
We had hardly swallowed our supper, and
Mr. Riley Haggard was about to climb a
date palm to secure a few luscious lecture
dates, when our ears were saluted by a most
unearthly and ear piercing roar from the
heart of the jungle. At this moment our
faithful Ylang Ylang came in with eyes
sticking out like a sore thumb to announce
that our bird dog hod flushed a large Abyssinian lion.
Hurriedly putting a little Mayonnaise
dressing on our faithful Ylang Ylang, we
tent him out to parley with the hon while we
put on our telegraph climbers, and filling our
pockets with bultong we ascended a Dulutb
palm tree.
We had not long to wait I The wang-wanga
bushes parted and a low, heavy set performing lion crept softly Into the open Karroo,
preceded at a distance of about three-quarters
of an inch by our faithful Ylang Ylang. As
the poor fellow jumped a low Kirdish bush,
I heard a crunching sound such as I never
hope to .hear again, and turned away my
head rather then Bee our trusty gun bearer
in the act of backing Into a lion.
As soon as 1 could regain my courage by a
■mall nip of spoopju, I looked back at the
sickening spectacle. All was still save tbe
distant song of the red breasted blim-blam In
Ih* Koojoo bushes.
Suddenly remembering how I bad once
teen a lion tamer make a lion quail, I de-
toended from the tree and, taking a small
riding whip with me, I said, "Hit" and
Whipping him across the forolegs, in the
avian time frequently making the remark
"fill" I drove bim away from there Out of
the kraal, down the sloot or dry water
course and across the Karroo lands be sped
tad to on back to Winnipeg, where he joined
hk congress of rare wild beasts, as I afterwards learned.
Hastily saddling our elephants and slnchlng
them tightly, ao that the howdah could not
•lip around under tbe stomach of the noble
Beast, ws mounted by means of a freight car
.tending near by and returned across the
trantvaal, whatever that Is, and hiring a
diligence, we packed our remaining supply
of bultong, elephant tusks, spoopju, pemmi-
ean, elephant blubber, sacred cow meat, dried
yak, kroollejam, Milwaukee Heldsieck and
a glossary ot hard words from Rider Haggard, and took tbtfears at Stanley Pool, re-
Wring to penetrate still further into the

Dall Room Manners.
A society woman writes deprecatingly
of the want of manners that so many
people exhibit at bulls and other social
entertainments, and of the ruthlesinesa
with which they will interrupt an interesting conversation. How are they to
know that It is interesting? Well, if
tbey bave only a little discrimination
they will be able to see for themselves.
"Once upon a time," she says, "it waa
understood that opportunities were to be
waited for, and tete-a-tetes were not abruptly broken in upon." But sucb a
state of things—if it ever existed—exists
no longer. A woman will beckon to a
man across the drawing room, and lol
he will arise and go, leaving the woman
be had been talking to all alone, and
perhaps she knows no ono else in the
room. Another woman will cross the
room and enter into conversation with a
man who is enjoying a quiet talk with
another woman, whom she does not
know. But it is so easy to Ignore the
other woman! A man will seek out another man who has retired to a secluded
corner with a pretty girl, and, not knowing the girl, will tell his friend he wonts
to introduce him to a certain lady. If
you are a woman, your host or hostess
comes up and carries off the man to
whom you ore talking, in order to Introduce him to some one elso, and you are
left standing alone, perhaps in the middle of the room. These are actual occurrences.—Philadelphia Press.

A Strange Featliei-ed Cannibal.
A remarkable bird, about the size of a
robin and much resembling a kingfisher
without tbe prominent tuft of feathers,
attracted considerable attention on a
street in Kennebec, Me., recently. Flying along to an English sparrow, with
one dart of his hooked beak he killed the
little bird, and then, placing one foot
upon his victim's breast, proceeded to
tear in pieces and devour bim. A stage
driver picked up the feathered cannibal
and his prey and carried them into a
near by store, where, perched upon the
counter, he devoured the sparrow with
apparent relish. The bird seemed to
have no fear of any one, and showed no
antipathy against anything but the
sparrows, several of which he killed during the afternoon. His species waa unknown to any who saw him, but it is
thought he is one of the variety known
as butcher bird.—Maine Paper.
Fraudulent Fawn Tickets.
A gang of swindlers whose specialty
in crime was the fraudulent imitation of
Mont de Pieto pledges, or pawn tickets,
has just been discovered. Avuncular
guarantees of this description have frequently been falsified In Paris by a process Imown among those who live by
their wits as tbe lavage des taffes. But
the knights of industry who have been
captured went further than this and bodily fabricated fictitious pledges, which
they sold in large quantities to purchasers or marchands do reconnaissances du
Mont de Piote. The swindlers had succeeded In realizing about £1,000 between
them by their transactions when pounced
upon by tbo police. At their headquarters in the Faubourg St. Martin was found
a complete manufactory of false tickets,

Dickens' Name.
Discoveries of what has been already
discovered are not infrequent. One of
the latest cases in point is that of Mr.
Kltton, the high priest of English Dickens worship. Mr. Kitton declares "it is
not generally known that the name ot
Charles was entered In the baptismal
register of St. Mary's (tho parish church
of Portsea) as Charles John Huffham
Dickens." If it is not generally known,
it Is not the fault ot the great novelist's
biographers. Dickens dropped the John
Huffham early, despite the tact that it
waa ihe name of his father's old friend.

Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis ..rowne's Chlorodyne, has earned foi
itself, not only in Hindoslan, but all over
the Kast. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to tht
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojum there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne'fl Chlorodyne in Diarrhea-,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as . general .Sedative, that have oecitrred
und*. ( our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used '-ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the Iwst, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj
fession   and   thc   public,   as   we ire ofthe        _   ,..   „

WEDNESDAY,   MAY   29,    1S89.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
DCEEl-i   v.   MO   MOO.
This case wae adjourned irom last week
and was brought for an infringement of
the Nuisance bylaw.
The adjourned case was withdraw n and
fresh information was laid by Constable
O'Connell.
Dr. Prieger sworn, said I am a registered Phvsicisn of this Provinoe and Medical Officer for the City of Nanaimo. I
have seen the drain on Franklyn Street
leading from Mo Woo's laundry. It is a
great danger to the public health. There
are pools of stagnant water and the
soapy water is lodging in places. There
were little dams in the drain damming
the water back. I spoke to defendant
about the matter, and also verbally notified tbe Sanitary Committee and constables about it either last August or
September. I do not think the dram
is properly constructed. The liottles produced contains soapy water. Tho state
of the drain would be dangerous to public health in hot weather.
Cross-examined by E. Yarwood—
Soapy water is the most dangerous.
A. Shaw sworn, said he was Station
Master at Nanaimo. Knew the defendant had a laundry on Franklyn Street
and visited it on the evoning of the 27th
inst. A very offensive smell arises from
the drain. I saw the bottles produced
filled from the soapy water In the drain.
To E. M. Yarwood—The drain empties
under a bridge.
To the Court—The drain is oflensive
and the public schools are near it.
A. Anderson sworn, testified that he'
lived on Franklyn Street. He saw some
■aapy water coming from the drain leading from the laundry. I recognize the bottle produced as the
one filled by Constable O'Connell
last evening from water flowing through
the ditch. I also saw him fill another
bottle later. I went with the constable
to the laundry and heard him ask defendant, " What for you let water go 1" The
defendant answered, "I no care, J. Gum-
mell tell me let 'em go all time." There
was a great smell coming from the drain.
The door of my house is about eight feet
from the drain.
Constable O'Connell, sworn, testified:
That he had visited the drain leading
from defendant's laundry on Franklyn
Btreet. I saw soapy water coming from
the defendant's laundry, and filled thc
bottle produced marked li, with water.
It is mixed with fresh water that flows
from above the laundry. Later in the
evening I again visited the place and
filled tie bottle marked A, with water
from the drain. This placo iB one of the
greatest nuisances I have seen in this or
any other city I have visited, in fact persons living in the vicinity say they will
send their families away if it be not
abated. I spoke to Mo Woo about it and
he said "J. Gammell all time talkee me
let 'em go." The nuisance is particularly
Kiat in the'evening1 and early morning.
ere were complaints made about it last
August, I think.
H. S. Gough, City Clerk, sworn: Produced a certified copy of the Nuisance
By-Law, and also a copy of 13. C. Gazette,
in which the said by-law was published.
He said he thought the laundry had been
Duni-inur on tin l.i'cii.
Half a dozen young meu of this city
have put their heads together and have
come to the conclusion that it would be
a very enjoyable way of spending Saturday evening to have regular weekly
dances on the platform on the "('reen."
In order to do this it is, of course, necessary to obtain the consent of the owners
of the ''Green" and to negotiate for the
use of the Nanaimo Band. Their idea is
to make a subscription dance of the
affair, charging 10 cents a dance or 50
cents for the whole evening's programme.
Nothing but temperance drinks will be
dispensed during the evening's amusement and order will prevail. Most
of the originators of the scheme seem to
have been connected with similar affairs
in the east, und predict that if they can
obtain the consent of the owners of the
"Green" to uso it for a nominal sum that
the affair will be self-sustaining. The
charges that will be made will be utilized
to pay the musicians and rent. The idea
is, to sav the least of it, a very harmless
one anil would keep many young men
away from more vicious pursuits. Most
other cities have some kind of place
where young people Can enjoy themselves
in a harmless manner, but here the only
resort of youth seems to be to the Salvation Army, and doubtless most of our
readers would enjoy the dance more than
the bill of fare held out by the latter.

Six Days on a Haft.
James Mcliarry, one of the victims of
the Alaskan disaster, lias arrived at Coos
Bay, Oregon, having had a terrible time.
For six days he was tossed ubout on a
raft 10x4 feet, exposed to the elements
with nothing to shelter him, and with
not a mouthful of food. As it was stormy
and raining nearly the wholo time, he
managed to catch' a little rain water on a
board to moisten his parched tongue, and
this was the only refreshment he had until he was finally washed ashore, when
he obtained a little clam soup from a
Chinaman. It will be some time beforo
he regains his health. His limbs are
frightfully swollen and chafed from his
enforced position on the raft. Nothing
has yet lieen heard of the missing men
who were in one of thc boats, and it is
now feared that they have found a watery
grave.—Colonist.

Back from \ Unlets,
The steamer Islander, iu command of
Capt. John Irving, arrived at the outer
wharf at 2.30 o'clock this morning from
Alaska via Vancouver. The trip is the
fastest on record. The Islander brought
down Capt. Carroll as a passenger, as
well as the Webb party. The millionaire
tourists will spend a day or two in Victoria seeing the sights before returning
east by way of California. The trip just
made by the Islander proves her the
fastest steamer plying in the Northern
Pacific waters.—Colonist.

T. O'Connell, constable, pressed for the

E. M. Yarwood made nn able defense
stating that the by-law was not applicable

The Pacific Squadron for the Behring
Seas — Great Excitement  io
the  Capital.
Victoria, May 28.—Reliable information has been received to-day that
Admiral Heneage has instructions to
proceed to Behrings Sea. He will sail
on or about June 15th. He will take the
flagship Swiftsure and the war ships
Amphiou,Icarus, Champion (now en route
to Ksquimalt). snd the two torpedo boats.
The latter are very swift. Great excitement prevails over the statement. It is
reliably known that before clearing for
Behrings Sea the masters of sealing
schooners had assurances from the Admiral that they would receive protection,
and that if any seizures were attempted
by the American cruisers, England would
prevent it. The blue jackets and marines
have been busy for sometime fitting the
ships for a long cruise, Three months
patent fuel, etc., has been taken aboard.
There are great speculations aa to the
outcome.

SPORTING   NOTES.
Steamship Idalio's Movements.
The steamship Idaho, plying between
Portland and Puget Sound points, will
strike her regular schedule, leaving Portland at 10 p. m. June 3rd, and thereafter
regularly every twelve days. Her route
will be as follows: Portland to Victoria;
thence to Nanaimo, Vancouver, New
Westminster, Roche Harbor, Whatcom,
genome, Seattle, Port Townsend, Port
Angeles; thence to Portland. The time
from Portland to Victoria will be about
thirty-two hours, making it quite practicable for our merchants to ship fruit and
Other perishable freights, arriving here
in good condition, as all such freights
will be carried on the upper deck, giving
it access to free air, which will keep it in
prime condition. The Idaho will discharge and receive freight at Turner,
Beeton it Co.'s dock instead of landing at
the outer wharf.
It ia expected by the management of
the O. II. & N. Co. to place another
steamer on the route as soon as the
traffic will justify. A regular printed
schedule, giving sailing dates and arrivals
will be placed in the shippers' hands in a
few days.—Colonist.

Katertalumeut at Wellington.
A very enjoyable entertainment was
given on Monday night at Wellington
under the auspices of the Methodist
Church. Mr. Evans was elected to the
chair and filled it ably.
The first part of the programme wus,
we are informed, a tea which had been
prepared by the ladies of Wellington and
which received considerable attention at
the hands of the assembled people. It
waa pronounced excellent and great
credit waa due to those who had tlie
management of the affair. A very interesting programme was submitted to the
approval of tbe audience, and consisted
of trios, duets and solos, which were ably
rendered bv tbe performers.
We received our report of the entertainment too late on the night of the
27th inst., to send it to press and so now
only make a mention of it.
opinion of your article. I may speak for
a section of our community who are like-
minded with myself, but it is altogether
too absurd to think of me holding a brief
at the same time for the opposite side. If
I were asked my opinion on the point I
would be inclined to say that it was a
bid for the support of the liquor interest.
But that aspect of the question was not
beforo me on the occasion referred to,
and whether you have or have not
secured that support does nol in any way
modify the offensiveness of the article.
The cheap bluster of the remainder of
your article to-day, imputing to me
threats of the withdrawal of our support,
is too ridiculous to be treated seriously.
Yours, etc.,
James Millar.
We have again looked over the notes
referred to and the only possible construction of whicli they admit, seems to
Us the one which we have already placed
upon them. For the rest we are quite
ready to accept Mr. Millar's denial as to
his utterance of the words with which he
was credited. The latter part of our
article of yesterday, which the above
letter characterises as " bluster," did not
refer to our estimable and respected correspondent in any way. We wish further
to add that for the future we shall by no
means fee! ourselves bound to insert
letters relating to Editorial matter. Wc

opinions he may choose to hold. All we

PRIZE FIOHT BETWEEN   LA   BLANCHE    ANU
LUCIE.
San Francisco, Mav 18.—Mike Lucie,
of Troy, N. Y., was defeated by Geo. La
Blanche ("the Marine"), of Boston, before fifteen hundred members of the
California Athletic Club, this evening, in
thirteen rounds. The battle was one of
the best exhibitions ever witnessed in
San Francisco. Hiram Cook acted as
referee. Lucie was seconded by Tommy
Warren and Jack Welch, while Paddy
Gorman and Frank Murphy did the
honors for "the Marine." The contest
up to the ending of the ninth round was
clearly in favor of Lucie, who made the
fighting and who seldom failed to land
on "the Marine's" nose or stomach.
First blood was given Lucie in the 3rd
round by a terrific right bander on La
Blanche's mouth. La Blanche scored the
first knock down in the 10th round by
chance blow on Lucie's jaw, which seemed
to completely change the tide of battle,
The 11th round was in favor of "the
Marine." The call of time at the end of
the 12th round only saved Lucie from a
complete knock out which occurred in the
following round.

Hallway Accidents.
The returns for accidents on the railways of the United Kingdom during the
year 1S88 are interesting. Eleven passengers were killed and 549 injured, as
against 25 passengers killed and 538 injured in 1887. There were 96 injured
from other causes than those due to collisions und mechanical defects. Of servants of the companies, there were 389
deaths and 21 injuries. Fifty-three persona perished at grade crossings, The
total is nearly 1,000 killed and 9,000 injured in connection one way or other
with the railway system. There were
35 collisions between passenger trains
and 54 between passenger and freight
trains. There were 288 failures of axles,
the greater part belonging to engines.
In 1872 the railway deaths were one in
18,000,000 passengers carried. It is now
one in 70,000,000.

Hard to Swim For It.
Two men went ior a sail yesterday and
after landing on Protection Island took a
stroll around. When they returned they
discovered to their dismay that their
boat was adrift. After consulting a short
while tbey finally decided to toss who
should swim after the boat which by
this time was a considerable distance
away. The loser said the water was very
cold and the next time he goes boating
be will take an anchor.

An exciting runaway occurred yesterday on Commercial Street. The horse
attached to Adderton & Irving's baker's

and started down the street at a great

delivery of the staff of life has been seen.
Neither the horse nor cart sustained
any serious damage.

A WARSISG,
The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the Throat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in thc throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to the lungs
producing Consumption and to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in lime cause
death. At the onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
attention is dangerous and may losr ._, n
life. As soon as you feel that scmeinilig I
wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostr.ls
obtain a bottle of Boscbee's German Syrup.
it will give yOU immediate relief;
Jena, to undertake another journey to
tbe Arctic regions in order to make zoo-
ogical researches.
