one of the sailors that the Indians had
threatened they would kill him if they
saw they were "lieing taken to Sitka. On
his coming ashore he hail reported the
facts of the case to Vice-Consul Marvin,
to whom he handed over all documents.
Mr. Marvin had telegraphed the particulars to Washington, and also to Consul
Stevens nt San Francisco.
the UATB'S ACCOUNT,

The weather was dirty up to the 10th,
when it cleared up and the cuaoes went
out. On the Uth the weather was again
fair, the fog having lifted during the
morning. We were right among the
seals, and there was every prospect of a
good catch. About three o'clock 1
sighted the Rush bearing down upou us,
and at once ordered sail to be made. We
got under way though our canoes were

and was ordered to heave to a second and
a third time, and then the Rush steamed
across my bews, compelling me to lay-to.
At the time I was about 35 miles from
land. It was about four o'clock when
two boats containing Lieut. Tuttle, three
officers ancl about ten men boarded my
schooner. So far as 1 could see, they

again askod me to deliver up my papers,
and I again declined. The Lieutenant
then suid he would have to use force if I
did not hand over the paperB, und 1 told
liim that was the onlv way he could get
them. Ho asked for the key ot the
locker, and being refused, he called for
liis master-at-arms and instructed him to
unscrew the door of the locker, which he
llid and took my papers. The men had
during this time removed the salted skins

Ihe latter they left behind.
Lieutenant Tuttle then placed on board
my  schooner John  Hawkins, an  ablo
seaman     of    lhe    Rush,   with    written   instructions   to  take  the  schooner
to    Sitka     and     deliver     her     over
to the customs collector, detaining myself and  mate Cold, and releasing crew
and Indians.    I  lold Lieut. Tuttle that
unless he placed a crew on board tho
schooner would not be taken to Sitka by
inc.   To this he did net reply.   The cutter then steamed away, having told me
that they bad Btrict instructions to seize
every schooner found sealing within the
waters of Behring Sea.   I first sailed the
Black Diamond to the entrance of Ounalaska harbor, hoping to lind thc British
war  vessels  there, .then 1 would  ask
their protection.   On the wny in to Ouaa-

1 was successful in neither.   1 spoke the
schooner Kate on the 28th with -ill seals

Bail direct for Victoria.   When we were
out three days the American bluejacket
noticed where we were going.   Previous
to this, having heard threats from the
Indians that they woulal murder him tl
we headed for Sitka, he auagested that
wo had better take tbem home, but after

Hawkins went ashore without saying a
word.    As  Mr. Frank, the owner of the
schooner is awtiv, 1 don't know what action to take, hut have reported  my arrival to Collector  llamley.    This concluded the captain's story, and Mr. Stanton, secretary of Licut.-Uovernor Nelson,
arrived.   He took Capt. Thomas' name,
und a statement of the seizure, and then
left to report to his honor.
Captain Thomas ia a short, well-built
man, about thirty ycais of age. He did
not seem to think that he had done anything remarkable, and was somewhat
astonished with thc congratulations that
were showered on him for his pluck in
making n bold stroke nnd bringing his
vessel to Victoria, instead of sailing into
Sitka witb one American bluejacket on
board.

Mr. Fax. jumped away with the air of a
man w-ho did not understand a word that had

of uouiething steaming hot, which he set on

began to whistle aneoulfar call and the yellowish snup moved restlessly in the bowl. A

Mr. Fan. removed the dishes. He wanted to

was a revelation. It was aromatic and the
flavor delicious, and if there luul not been a

would have been thoroughly enjoyable. This
ended the dinner.

Wad-El-S-Jnmi Killed and His Band
of Followers Completely Exterminated—How Fanatics Fight.
London, Aug. 0.—England ia drawing
a long breath ul relief lo-day after tbe
news of the complete rout of her enemies
in Egypt on the banks ef the Nile early
yesterday morning. Further details of
the buttle received here to-day describe a
scene of revolting slaughter, bucIi aa
could scarcely occur where both coin-
lintants are civilized soldiers. Nor does
the responsibility for the butchery rest
on the English troops and their Egyptian
allies. Long after the fate of the day had
been decided, after all hope of recovering
their lost ground must have lieen abandoned by tbe fanatical dervishes
they continued to hurl themselves
foot anal tho shoo dropped into j ,,p011       their      foea,      only      to      be
 '' l""'"i li:;''" leeotmc, mercilessly mowed down.   They refused
all quarter and gave none, but with a
grim determination to win or die, with
shout ot "Victory or death," they fought
as bravely and stubbornly when the
deadly fire of their enemies had cut great
swatlia in their ranks, and when every
movement was hampered by piled up
bodies of their own dead, as when firat
with unbroken front and confident of victory they faced their foes. It was while
leading the scattered remnant of his
brave warriors on thiB forlorn hope that
the Dervish leader, Wad-El-N-Jumi,
fell, pierced by a bullet in his brain. His
followers, nothing daunted liy bis fall,
daahed themselves over and over again
upon the pitiless and unbroken line of
rifle barrels in front of tbem, and kept up
the light long alter every vestige of organization among them had been destroyed,
und when nothing was left for the scat'

dearly as possible. So it came that fully
one-half of the invaders' force waa left
denal upon the field. The small number
of fighting men which Wad-El-N-Jumi
brought into the engagement is a complete surprise. All estimates heretofore
credited him an available force of no less
than 0,000 men, while it turns out that
he couid not at. any time have had more
than half that number. The whole Dervish force is now completely wiped out,
and all immediate danger of au invasion
Irom that quarter is at an end.
Cairo, Aug. 5.—The official report of
General Grenfell of the battle near
Toski vesterdav haB been received here.
According to this report tbe Dervishes
wore themselves out by desperate and
repeated charges. The blunt of the
assault was borne hy the infantry line of
the Twentieth Hussars; but tbe Egyptian
cavalry and Egyptian heavy artillery
rendered excellent service. The report
places the number of fighting men
brought into the engagement by Wad-El-
N-Jumi ns 3,000.
The British troops will return to Cairo
at once, there being no further need for

Cp m that neighborhood, on one of the
fashionable avenues, thero lives :t lady
who does her marketing over on State
street. Her pet is a pretty little while
poodle dog which she keeps immaculately
clean This dog is a dainty little creature, as white as the proverbial driven
mow. and always wilh a delicate pink
or blue ribbon adorning his neck. Well,
the lady went to market on the morning
in question and the dog was with her.
The streets were very muddy and sloppy
and the poodle did some very artistic
work in picking his way across the
streets and avoiding puddles. As he
crossed State street at the heels of his solicitous mistress his finicky actions were
jealously watched by a yellow mongrel
who eyed him from the further corner.
This cur glared at him until he disappeared in lhe corner grocery. Then he
turned tail. t<x>k to his beeis and disappeared alown the alley hack of Dearborn
street.
In a few minutes tlie mongrel cur returned to the corner. He was accompanied by a half dozen ilogs, who looked
fully as tough as he did. The crowd took
up a posilinu iu n group near the curbstone und apparently eyed the grocery
across the way vory closely. Pretty soon
the dainty poodle and his fond mistress
came out nnd started across the street
the dog skipping puddles artistically.
Just about as he reached tho middle of
the street the signal was given. The
group of curs hounded into the muddy
Btreet and made a bee line forthe poodle.
Tlie largest dog took the lead and caught
tho pet amidships. He did not attempt
to bite him—just knocked htm about ten
feet through the mud, amid the walls of
his mistress. Every cur in tbe crowtl
took occasion to trample on the poodle
with muddy feet, and then they gathered
on the opposite curb in a crowd, lookeai
back nt their victim and appeared to
laugh. Tho victim was covered with
mud anal looked as though some one had
washed windows with him. And the
big mongrel whn put up tbe job looked
at bis co-conapirators and appeared to
say: "Well, we did that gay duck up In
line shape, and I guess we ve taught him
not to be so gallns hereafter*'' Dogs are
intelligent—tliere is no question about
that.—Chicago Herald.

Lit Utile has heen heard of lute about
Ihe progress nl the work upon Ihe
Nicaragua canal. Il appeals, however,
that thr work on the canal iB progressing
favorably. There are aboul seven hundred men at. work on theoanal, and with
very few exceptions Ihey are in good
health. The terminus of the construction railroad ot Greytown has heen laid
out, anil engineers' quarters are being
erected around if. There have hs-ati reports of trouble hei ween Nicuraugus and
Costa Rica in reference io lhc canal, bul
the misunderstanding is not regarded as
serious.    As regards Ihe pushing forward

What a Boy Did.
A few days ago a horse attached to i
<i press wagon   went   racing   pasl   i;
.irtuid   "Pacific.   The  animal  had  ei
deiitly been feeding and became frig:
sued, for he had no bit in his mouth in
uls bridle bung on liis neck.   As tbe ro
s»ay   rushed   furiously  across   Llu
•i rcet and west on Jackson a young I..
.uinped forward, caught the tailboard i
'.he wagon and climbed in.   He had i
souner got there than the vehicle st rm
a cab and careened sufficiently to thro
he  boy  out.   He  picked  himself
piickly and climbed back once more in
die wagon.   While the horse waB si.
running at full speed the boy ventur
»ut on to the shafts, readied the horse
'lead and managed to stop the aninu
/■ftt before Fifth avenue was reached
I'wo policemen stood on  the corner  nl
Lickson and Clark and saw tbe  hm
rush by, but made only slight effort-- <
■l-sack him.    For all this one of thc bnhi
iluecoatssaid to the other: "That was
nave attempt you made to stop thai
horse, Jim;  your -life   was  in   dangai
•■very minute."   "That'strue, Dan, that's
rue; and  I never would have had tin
jourage to do what 1 did had I not boci
tlio bravery you showed  flrst.    It wus

The artistic arrangement of the lawn
is, to the owner of every country place,
a matter of the first importance, or
should be. Timo was when flower beds
plentifully besprinkled ita green surface
and made of even the smallest plat a
very garden of brilliant coloring, ot-
trooting the eye of every beholder. But
the fashions change hero as elsewhere,
and behold, now the popular taste would
point toward the larger expanse of green l
with its modicum of shrub and tree,
while the old time flower bed and its oc-
oupanls smile nt you through tho garden
fence.
Care should be taken to have a firm,
beautiful sod in the first piaoe, to which
end a thorough preparation is essential,
and, whether it is to ho sodded or 60wn,
frequent top dressing will insure its con-
tinned beauty, especially If cut close ami
often.
As to the arrangement, a continuous I
variety in form,   color and expression
would lend  themselves to the eye nud
hand of the true lover of artistic beauty, j
Here a certain species of tree, dainty and
delicate hi nature, yet perfectly hardy, i
would   form   a  beautiful  mass   when
grouped, like the dwarf arbor vitie and I
Irish juniper, while there are tor separate   planting   the   varieties of Norway
spruce, white spruce and hemlock, the
larger varieties to be kept within bounds
by cutting back, while thedwarfishkinds
may follow tbeir will.—Vick'a Magazine

tbo manager* of there place-; ure women.
The mealfl are served by clean-looking and
neatly dressed girls, who are exceedingly polite to r-trnnger-*, espacially
foreigner*, and courtesy as be wi tellingly a., tho milk maid iu "Patience."
The manager binds himself to supply tbe publio with good aud well-prepared food, cold or warm, including coftee,
tea, cocoa, mineral water, cigars, etc., ou
his own account Ho further biuds himself
to '•ell spiritous liquors and wines only for
cash paid on tbe spot; not to soil to persons
••fuddled witb drink, or underage;" not to
go on selling spirits tu persons who "require
several drams in succession, or who pay renewed visit* to tbo public house withiu

casks containing tbe liquor must bo so kept
as to bo under strict control. No liquor can
eveu be servo! in any but tha regulation

HOW IT   WOBKB.
Onco a week tbe manager is bound to pay
the company for nil tbo spirits be has ra-
t-eivod for sale, whether sold -according to
tbe tariff or still remaining as stock on
baud. He is bound also to soil bis stores aa
he receives them; bo may add no in-
Krodleuts, or otherwise niter their quality.
He may not without >p.-**i;*.l permi-ssion introduce musical entertuinment-f. This does
away with all the lower-grade concert dena,
though good music aud entertainment can
be bod ut tbe .summer gardens and authorised mimic balk Should the manager broak
any of tbo provisions under which he (or
•ho Us appointed, he for sbe) can be dis
missed at onco without compensation.
Accompanied by Mr. Rubonson, I visits 1
at loast half of tbo public houses of Gothenburg, aud wo found them uniformly clean,
orderly, airy and decent. During tho first
hour of our tour they ware filled with work-
Ingmen enjoying tbeir drams {almost indispensable before dinner to the Swede) nnd
such dinners as thu*u described above. 1
was struck with the civility and attention,
bestowed upon all customers by the raana*
goi*-* and their not infrequently fascinating
assistants. Without entering into tbe question as to whether or not this systoin could
be successfully introduced iuto tbo United
States, it must be udmitted that it bas
worked most satisfactorily in Scandinavia.
In some recent reports made by tbo governors of other province i, tho testimony is
unanimous that tbe Gotlionburg system has
lessened drunkenness nnd been beneficial to
tbo communes adopting it. Iu Norway it
has been legally adopto i, aud some time ago
its principles wero adopted in the greatur
uumber of such commune;! as bad tho right
to do so. A committee of tbo British house
of lords, appointed to inquire into tbo mean'
of preventing tbo increase of intomporanco,
after examining various proposals, expressed themselves in favor of this system
and recommended its adoption iu England.
Tbo Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, the
Radical loader, is also a strong and able advocate of this system for Jiirmiugbam, nnd
1 believe before many yoar.s it will be on hV
trial in England.

A thousand times tbe words came back
And thee witli them they brought.
Where thou art now 1 cannot tell -

Or near, hut wheresoe'er thou be,
Thou'rt ever in my heart.
Mayhap of me thou thinkest not.

Yet every hour of day nnd night,

Perchance 'tis hest I seo thee not;

A I'lvcr's {experience.
In searching for the bodies of drownasd
persons, I havo oiperioncod some great shocks
from vary slmplo oc 'irrences, porhapa the
most notable of which was at tho St. Charloa
bridge disaster. Among the inifoKiri/dtaw
bad seen a tramp who had gone down with
Ihe avreck. I thought I had all tho bodies
mil, nntl had been blasting for about two
tveek**, when, whilo Leaning over the side of
a ;,muil boat, a white, ghastly, and nearly
nude corpse shot light up in the air, somo
feet a'loar of the water, grazing my faco aa it
passed. At first I thought it an apparition.
Siisiiililcn and unexpected did tho horrid
thing burst on iny sight that it completely
unnerved mo, and Cor days I was prostrated.
Tho explanation wius simple. Tho body hud
been pinned alown until decomposition had
gena't'atod gases and inualo the corpse so light
that it naturally longed to got out of the
water, until tho specillc gravity had been
rendered so much less thasi that of tho surrounding element, that the longing hnd been
Intensified to a degree that overcame the retaining influence, anal it got free and shot
upwards. Bodies gain a remarkable forcoby
continued expansion. I havo known them to
bring up au amount of sand and mud almost
beyond belief.—St. Louis Globo-Democnit.

lady who is the mother of thirty children.
A few yoar.i since thero died a woman of tlio

Thero is now living at the county hospital

unintelligible jargon. He iu quite acting
and retains moat of his faculties to a remarkable degree. Last season a man born in the
year 1800 assisted me on a ranch to hive n
number of swarms of bees. He would run
up to tho top of a live oak troa, crawl out on
a limb where tho buos were, aud saving it
off, would lowou it to me, when I \ou!d
placo the hive over tho bees.
Longevity does not seom to bo confined to
the human specios altogether in this land of
sunshine and flower*--. At Iho stato fair,
two years since, I saw a horse :iH yenrs old
led in the stock cavalcade that showed the
activity of a 4-year-old colt. The adage
that "anything soon ripe is moo rotten" doe-)
uot seem to hold good here. Both the animal aud vegetable croation mature at a
wonderfully oarly period. Heifers become
mothers at from 15 to lb months, and mares
at '4 years of ago. Fruit trees boar in two
to three years after planting;. Nor is the
tenacity of lifo conlinod to tbe animal kingdom. In hoeing weeds, if one adheres tn
the soil by tho loast fibrous root it will live
and thrive. If a cutting of most any troo
or shrub be made and stuck into tho moist
soil, It will grow. Notwithstanding the
eight months of dry woathc-r last season,
wlth only a few light sho war j during the
winter, followed by nearly six mouths »f
dry weather this year, all planted and cul
tivati-d crops look green and flourishing.
This is owing to tho largo amount of
humidity in the air.

Multiplication of Drugs,
A Baltimore physician in a paper published
In a local medical journal denounces with
'■■ lively earnestness the tendency to tho multiplication of useless drugs.     Tho writer as-
; sorts that in tho index to tho fifteenth edl-
| tion of the "United States Dlspeasatory" Is a
[ list of about 17,000 names of medicinal substances, which, allowing for duplication and
repetition,   ho   estimates   represents   about
[ 11,000 remedies.    Tkcee of  acknowledged
merit In this enormous bulk are aptly eoni-
i parod to Gratiauo's reasons, "two grains of
! wheat hid iu  two bushels of  chaff."   Tho
j very existence of this vast armory of thera-
1 pontic weapons demonstrates   tho  doctor's
weakness in his strugglo with disease.   The
I conquerors of this world-are the men of few
; weapons; the needless elaboration of arras is
i the vain resort of tho f-seble.— Analyst.

Payment to singers has sometimes taken
an odd form. When Mil. Zeile, a vocalist
from the Theatre Lyriquo at Paris, was
making a profest-ional tour round the world
some years ago, she gavo a concert in the
Society islands. She agreed to sing an air
from "Norma" and a fow other songs, and
was to got a third of the recoipts. Whor
counted, tbo prima donna's share was found
to consist of throe pigs, twenty-three
turkoys, forty.four chickens, 3,000 cocoa-
nuts, bosldea a quantity of bananas, lemons
and manges.

assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate the circulating systems ofthe body,
you will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by Dr. J. Collis
Browne (lato Army Medical Staff), to which
he gave the name of CHLORODVNE, nnd
which is admitted by the profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE is the beat remedy
known for Coughs- Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhoea, and is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.

Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir*—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not unly in Hindostan, but all over
the East. 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 ils finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy tu say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could mull ipi) instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy uf
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrlur,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Nciralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, thai have ott-..,rred
und..'our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhira, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used *>ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro]
fession and the public, as wt *■■* ofthe,
opinion mat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OE FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His j
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnancellor Sir \\.

Through the courtesy of Mr. A, G.
Home, local agent of the Dominion Savings Hank, we arc enabled to furnish the
following statement of the business ofthe
Nanaimo Branch. Deposits for the fiscal
vear ending June 30th, 1889, *119,7l'l,
the withdrawals for the same period being $92,513.(11. The total amount due
depositors on June 80th, 1880, was $288,-
744.94. The business for the last month
(Julv) was the highest yet reached in the
Nannimo Branch, the deposits being $16,-
444, .and the withdraws Ifl2,042. As
these large figures are the aggrogaUs of
numerous small sums, an idea of the immense amount of work entailed on Ihe
local agent can be readily obtained.
Mr. Home has also received notice that
commencing on October 1st the Savings
Bank interest will be reduced from 4 per

Tbe Coipor.ition workmen are engaged
grading the Esplanade and makiag ssnie
repairs to sidewalks in different parts of
the city. Mr. Baker's men have completed tlie work on Qillespie street, which
will allow teams to get in with building

cleaned. A crossing has also been built
from Franklyn stre»t to Kennedy street
to allow builders' material to he taken up.
Report received and filed.
Aid. Nightingale, as chairman of ihe
Street Committee, said that hod*' had
met Rev. J. B. flood in regard to the
matter of obtaining a strip of the church
properly for the purpose of widening
Church Street, anal it is now merely a
matter ol" how many feel Ihe Trustees
will relinquish.
Aid. Hilbert moved lhat Chapel street
be widened at the same time. Let the
Committee be empowered to interview
owners of properly on Chapel street. I
think the properly necessary could be tc-
qnlred at a reasonable figure.
Aid. Mahrer seconded the mslisti.
The Mayor—It is itnilertteoil that the
Council can widen any street at pleasure.
Aid. Baker—I would like tossy a word

Aid. Nightingale—The reason the men
were taken away was because we could
