Felix Adler Point, to tUo Meaiis or Dl-
vei'tlue It from Evil l*urpose«.
Every nook and corner of Cbickering
hall was occupied wben Felix Adler rose
to deliver his leeturo nn "Tho Struggle
Against Temptation." The audienco
listened to Mr. Adler with rapt attention
and at tho conclusion of tho address applauded loudly.
After tho usual singing by tho choir
Mr. Adler said that human desiro was at
tlio bottom of nearly all tbo good and
ovil in the world; tho desiro for knowledge fostered the pursuit of science, tlio
desire for tho beautiful bad created tho
arts, and virtue would bo unknown if
thero was not within man 11 groping for
moral harmony.
"Thero aro also within us," he con-
tlnucal, "certain gross appetites and
cravings, and when these occupy tho
Hold of tho mind thoy crowd out tlie better thoughts and drown tho soft, sweet
voice of virtue. The voico of duty has
been called still nnd small, and to hear it
wo must havo tho faculty of stilling our
"Certain natural desires are beBt dealt
with by satisfying them, particularly in
children, whoso appetites are only sharpened for pleasure when it is denied them.
Many children, denied what is perfectly
legitimate in youth, particularly tlie
sous of clergymen, go to excesses the
moment they gain their liberty.
"It iatho normal rulo to weaken desires by satisfying them, but thero nre
, certain desires which wo cannot and
others which wo must not gratify. No
desiro is justified because it is natural, if
it interferes with higher considerations;
and all desire must be suppressed when
it does interfere with these considerations. The object of desire lias power
over ua in proportion as its mental image
is sharply defined. Consequently, when
such desires do impress themselves upon
our mind, we must at once turn our
thoughts in another direction.
"Human will is freo, let doubters Bay
thocontrary.notwithstanding.   Thlstho-
i ory to tho contrary is tha outcome of ob-
j scuro metaphysics.    Wo must, neverthe-
, less, understand tho limits in which we
I aro free.    Let no man believe that ho
' can harbor ovil thoughts without being
j tho worse for it.    Wo are, however, free
j to throw off these thoughts when they
1 enter, and iu making this effort lies our
redemption.   This throwing oft must be
complete and Immediate, else  it only
lead3 to renewed moral degradation. We
must force our  thoughts Into a new
channel when evil ones assail us, but by
forbidding them  wo ouly moke tlio de-
siro more intense.   Jesus illustrates this
when   ho says 'Get  thee  behind   me,
"By some it is ni'guual that this system
< is cowardly and that avo should boldly
faco ovil.   It is true that we ought to bo
ablo lo face it; but it is also true that
wo  aro   unablo to do bo successfully.
You hear of  tho great Bocial sin, thc
moral   filth of   which   is  spread   over
our  city.    How   can   men  who  have
mothers and sisters forget tho sanctity of
women and profit by this sin?   It is desiro that curses them and makes their
i vision narrow, nnd  they apologize for
i themselves by saying that tlie desiro is
natural.   Weaklings all, over ready to
appeal to nature.    Let each man havo a
task for himself   throughout life, and
liko Ulysses ho will Bail past tlio sirens
toward tho shining goal.
"Tho two great helps toward this end
aro tho society of good and truo men,
and particularly that of cultivated and
refined women, and tlieideal companionship of thoso loved <vies who havo passed
"In tho first wo find those things which
wo have been striving for taken for
granted, and in tho second wo can do
nothing wrong hi tho radiant beauty of
thoso sweet faces which have gono to the
life of infinite peace." — New York
Time Is IHoney.
Time well employed produces money
or on equivalent gain of some kind. Time
idled away or wasted away upon Borne
unnecessary or useless labors not only
yields no return, but represents a loss of
opportunity that cannot be replaced. One
may regain any other thing that is squandered save timo. Onco gone, it is gone
for ail eternity. No moro important lesson can be given to tbe young than that
on the value of time. It may be passed
by unheeded, for on this subject more
than any other men seem determined to
learn by experience; but warnings Bhould
nevertheless bo given, that there may be
as early un awakening as may bo to the
irreparable loss of wasted time.
Even the best of men arrived at uiul-
dlo ago are suro to have regrets for lost
opportunities, for wasted time. Looking
back with tlio knowledge gained by experience, tbey can seo how mucli better
they might have ordered their lives il
they had made the best possible use of
their timo. Such knowledge cannot be
expected in younger men. The time will
come when thoy, too, will look back witli
regret; but they should be given early
warning from tha experience of others,
and be taught as well as may be that
time is money, not in tho vulgar sense,
but in that higher one which represents
money as merely n symbol of things that
ore good to have.—Baltimore Sun.
A l'oitnl Card Well Filled.
When some antiquarian of the future
reports that a citizen of Belfast wrote
on a postal card the whole of one of the
annual messages of President Cleveland
the Inference will be that President
Cleveland was a man of few words, but
the inference will he wrong. Tho message contained 1S,000 words, yet Mr.
Rila Klttredge got it all on the card with
a steel pen and ink, each letter, as seen
through n microscope, being beautifully
formed, Moreover, a border three-
eighths of an inch wide is placed around
tho card, representing a string of beads,
fifty-two in number, each three-sixteenths of on inch in diameter, and most
of them containing tho Lord's prayer;
4,000 words are put into this border.
Mr. Klttredge is 77 years old, and says
he could get 18,000 words on a postal
card. It took him forty-fivo days to
write this one.—Lowistou (Me.) Journal.

London. July ;lll.—Lord Randolph
Churchill made a speech at Walsall last
evening, and to-alny Liberals nnd Conservatives alike helal up their hands In holy
horror at the sentiments expressed. In
the lirst place he advocated a change in
the land laws so that the owner of land
would be deprived of Ibe right to be-
queath it to anyone after his death.
Next he advocated the purchase by municipalities under the rights of eminent
domain of large tracts of land within the
limits of tlieir cities and the erection
thereon of model dwellings for workmen,
these to be rented at such figures as shall
return a fair interest on the cost of erecting tlie houses, but no return whatever
for the cost of the land itself, lie advocated further local option In tlio treatment of the liquor question, so that each
town shall be permitted to decide for
itself whether or not licenses for the sale
of liquor should be granted. Finally he
avowed'.is adhesion to the ultra radical
doctrine ol the reguiuo.'.;. of hours of
labour by the government,, not ulune lor
woman and children, but for adult males
as well.

A IVouiiin's Wltoli,   Life Was   Changed by
as lied Bat with a Dull  It--,? Plume.
Thero was once a lady, sober in mind
and sedate in manner, whoso plain dress
exactly represented her desire to be inconspicuous, to do good, to improve
every day of her life hi actions that
should benefit ber kind. Rhe was a serious person, inclined to improving conversation, to tho rending of hound books
that cost at least a dollar and n i ml f (fifteen
cents of which she gladly contributed to
the author), and sha' had a distaste for
the gay society which was mainly a (hitter of ribbons nnd talk and pretty faces;
und when sho meditated, as she did in
her spare moments, her heart was sore
over the frivolity ot life and tbo emptiness of fashion she longed to make the
world belter, and without any priggisb-
ness she set it an example of simplicity
and sobriety, of oheorfulacquiescence in
plainness and InconspicuousnesB.
One day, it avas in the autumn, this
lualy had occasion to buy a new bat.
From u great number offered to ber she
selected a red one with a dull red plume.
It did not agree with tho rest of her apparel; it did not fit her apparent charac-
, ter. What impulse led to this selection
i sho could uot explain. She was not
tired of being good, but something in the
jauntiness of tho hat and the color
pleased her. If it wero a temptation Bhe
did not intend to yield to it, but sbe
thought sbe would take tbo bat home
and try it. Perhaps her nature felt the
j need of a littlo warmth Tho hat pleased
j her still moro when bIio j^ot it home and
I put it on and surveyed herself iu the
| mirror. Indeed, there was a now expression in her face licit corresponded to
the bat. She put it oil and looked at it.
There was something almost humanly
winning and temptations in it. In short,
sho kept it, nnd when sho woro it abroad
sho was not conscious of its Incongruity
to herself or to her dress, but of tho incongruity of tho rest of her apparel to
tho hat, which seeined to have a sort of
intelligence of its own, nt least a power
of changing ani conforming tilings to
itself. By degrees ouo article after
another in tho lady's wardrobe was laid
aside and another substituted for it answered to tho demanding spirit of the
In a little whilo this plain lady was not
plain any more, but most gorgeously
dressed and possessed with tlie desire to
bo in the height of the fashion. It came
to this that sho had a tea gown madoout
of a window curtain with a flamboyant
pr, I tern. Solomon in ull his glory would
havo been ashamed of himself in her

Sho did not any more (Slink of going
about lining enoil, hot. of .'uul'sing herself. She read nothing but stifles in
paper covers. In place of being sedat"
and Bober minded sho wus frivolous to
excess; she spent most of her timo witli
avomen who liked to "frivol." Sho kept
Lent ill tho most expensive way, so as to
make tho impression upon everybody
that she was better than tho extremest
kind of Leut. From liking tho sedatest
company she passed to liking the gayest
nticiety and tho most fashionable method
of getting rid of her timo. Nothing
whatever had happened to her, and she
is now an ornament to society.—Charles
Dudley "Warner in Harper's.

Of living in Paris outside of a hotel 1
know but little, except that a gentleman
who has spent a great deal of time here
and seen a good deal of society said to
mo that in no city can one live so absolutely as ho pleases as in Paris and still
bo respectable and fashionable, It was
somo time before New Yorkers took
kindly to modern flats, with their possible improvement and convenience.
High lifo of that kind was uot to their
taste. But here you find tho best people
living upon some narrow street, and you
.limb up flight and flight of winding
stairs until the fourth and fifth and
sometimes the sixth stago is reached,
where you 6top to breatho aud wonder
how any American could havo pitched
his tent so high.
But once inside tho tent your wonder
ceases, or rather takes another channel,
:is you find yourself in tho large, airy
and handsomely furnished rooms where
sa> many of our peoplo live quito as coni-
fortablo and with far less caro than they
.•an at home. "I would not go back to
America again, with all the worries of
housekeeping, for tlio world," I heard a
laalysay.whilohei'coinpanion, fresh from
l ho worries of American housekeeping,
avas ready to take them again, nnd woulal
not stay hero for nil the world. Antl so
opinions differ. But of the two 1 think
iho Parisian housekeeper has the best of
it, with better servants, smaller wages
and so many troublesome things done
outside—no washing or ironing, for this
is dono by thalancllisseuso, and no bread-
making, for tho bakers furnish all that,
and of nn excellent kind, too.—Cor.

An Hour's Snooze.
During cold weather somo of tho
paupers resort to somo very odd tricks to
get into somo houso whero thoy can
warm their chilled bodies by the generous bent from a Uro or steam register.
Tlio other Sunday, when it was quito
cold, n middle aged man of scraggy
beard, unkempt hair, wearing worn out
boots e.nd seedy coat and ragged pantaloons, and presenting a most repulsive
and dirty appearance, entered tho door
of St. John's Methodist church quietly,
and took a seat near tlio rear part of the
room. When tbo congregation struck
up a hymn the miserable tramp joined
in the singing with apparently as good
time as auy of the choristers. It was at
first supposed that ho had drifted in to
hear tho Gospel expounded—nnd may bo
(to did—but after reclining his head on
tho seat during prayer, ho fell asleep and
slept soundly during the entire sermon.
He didn't hear any Gospel expounded,
it least, and somo peoplo were cynical
enough to say that ho had entered the
.-hurcli for no other reason than to get
i snug, warm corner, where bo could
sleep for an hour.—St. Louis C.lobe-

The Ittlcsi uewa from Kebring Sea is
to the effort that United states revenue
colters are in hot pursuit of what tbey
ure pleased to term poachers upon the
preserves uf the Alaska Commercial Company. Tbo gHnbual llichanl Rush had
already eapturet] the Rritish sealer Black
Diamond and confiscated the vessel and
ber I'argo of skins Hon many inure
have been seized ainee, iberc :ue no
means at present available nf knowing;
but iIn- Inference in that, unless ihe
United States authorities meet with it
vigorous and pointed protest from Admiral Hknkaor, of the British North I'a-
cifie squadron, now in those waters, this
character of authorized pirac* will be
continued until our sealers are either all
confiscated or driven from Behring Sen.
By all tenets ,,i international maritime
law, three marine miles from land toward
the open sen constitutes the boundary of
the jtiristlii'tion of any nation. Outside
ol litis limit tbe sea is open to the free
and undisputed use of all nations. Hence
we contend that the seizure of these vessels sixty or .evenly miles Irom land,
upon tlie open sea, is its illi-j^nl as the
same act \r,mill be if perpetrated in lhe
middle of the I'aeilie ocean. The silly
contention put forth by the United Slates
that because ihey purchased Alaska they
obtained the exclusive ownership andl
control of Behring Sen, will not bold i*oi„l
in any international conference composed
of oven third-rate statesmen ol ibe present day. As well may England shv lhal
because she owns Gibraltar sbe has the;
ri;:ht to close the Mediterranean Sea lo i
ihe legitimate commerce of a friendly !
nation and seize and confiscate its vessels j
and iheir cargoes
If I'.iitisb Columbia did nol occupy
such tut isolated position—so far removed
from the sent of British authority—we
have no doubt this whole question would
have been settled long ago; in fact tit*,
i'nited sttttes government would never
hnve dared to set itself up na the autocrat
ofthe sens ami turn its "navy" into al
police squadron to forage upon ibe llgltl-
mate industries of other nations.
Then, again, the contention is raised
that British sealers had  no business In
Behring Sea this season,  because tbey
had been warned by proclamation duly '
issued by the Presidenl oi the   United
Mates   nol   Hj    ''trespass"   upon   thofletif
waters fur lite  purpose of  killing Seals.
The question naturally arJsQ** what authority has the  f'Kileil Slnles lo forbid j
persons or vessels from trespassing upon I
priitipi'iy whieh il does nol  own or over j
^whicli it   has  legally   no  jurisdiction?
The   position   of  our   cicit   republican |
neighbor in this respect is untenable,
and wr hope and trits.l the rights of our
sealers to the use of the open waters of
Behring Sea will be speedily enforced by
tbe British and Canadian governments.
Auoxa the new England complaints
against the policy of Interfering witli the
Canadian railways in the United States
Was one fraini Portland. The chief cily
of Maine would be seriously injured by
the trade of the Canadiau railways going
to Canadian seaports. Tbe commercial
independenae of Canada is very well exhibited by the alarm fell by tbe American
pttple themselves over the dei'lared inlen-
tion of their politicians to crush Canadian
railways. As lhe Halifax Herald puts it:
"Canada baa undoubtedly gained in self-
respect by declining to yield to the I'nited Slates wbru the puerile threal of retaliation was made. The evidence given
before the Senate's committee   indicates
that our neighbors now realize that the ; reasonable rales.     Spe

I iipliiasniit Sensations tht, llesult uf u Lack
uf Voutllatlon—'lhc Destroying Element,
Impure Air, Continually Sapping Our
urn niooil.
The atmosphere we breatho lias in its
natural stato a nearly uniform composition of oxygen, nitrogen, carbonic acid
and watery vapor. It is conceded that
in eacli inspiration four cubic inches is
taken into tbe lungs, one-half of which
disappears in tbo act of inspiration. This
consumption of oxygen Is greater when
the temperature is low than when It is
high, and during digestion it is greater
than when tho stomach is empty.
Hiding in tliosteam and horso cars, wo
nro compelled to breatho not only the air
from people's lungs, but tho exhalations
from tbeir skins and clothing. Fancy
riding in tho 6team cars for a long distance in winter timo, with two largo
stoves heated almost rod hot with anthracite coal, in a cpaco say of 15 feet
wido and 10 feet high. This space will
contain about eighty people, and is
closely shut up. Every ono knows tho
stovo uses up oxygen with great rapidity,
and what is left is breathed over and
over again by tho people, who aro giving
out from their lungs constantly a gas utterly unfit to bo breathed.
Is it any wonder headache and nausea
steal over tbem? They must either sit iu
a draught or enduro tbo poison, as tho
ventUators nro not enough to carry off
tho foul air.
Visit somo school bouses after a walk
in tbo fresh air and tbo odor is something
disgusting. Theso unpleasant sensations
como from want of greater ventilation.
Hero again the air is vitiated by the
breaths, clothing; many of tho pupils
scarcely know tbo luxury of a good bath
and plenty of clean underclothing. Now,
can tho air bo anything but bail under
such circumstances? If tlio windows aro
opened long tho teacher and children
tako cold, and some are afraid anal think
they cannot stanal the smallest breath of
fresh air.
A Bchoolroom 80 feet square and 8 feet
high contains 7,200 feet of cubic air.
This room will seat sixty pupils. Allowing ten cubic feet of air to each pupil
per minute, all tho air in tbo room will
be vitiated in twelve minutes. Now,
granting that every means is used regarding ventilation, and a goodly supply
of soap and water to scrub the floors instead of sweeping. A recess of fivo minutes ought to bo given overy hour, so
that tbo children could move about, havo
the windows anil aloors wido open, and
lot them breathe in freely tbo pure air of
lature, to repair their mental and phy-
lical condition.
Effects are proportioned lo causes, anal
if an atmosphere filled with 5 per cent,
of carbonic acial will produce death in a
fow minutes, what must bo the effect of
breathing for ten, twenty or forty years
tlio much smaller proportion which must
bo present in every Inhabited room where
there is not a constant incoming and out-
Sling of air? It must and does lower the
standard of health and shorten our lives.
Let a person who is in good health, witb
a sound nasal organ, tako a brisk walk
In tho open air, tben como at ouco into
the inhabited room, aud if there is any
unpleasant odor tho air of that room is
How many dwellings, sittiug rooms or
bedrooms would pass such on ordeal in
tbo early morning after being occupied
all night?
Bad air being heavy always sinks to
the floor, and to bo got rid of must bo
drawn from tbo floor, cither by open fireplaces or some means of ventilation. A
room 10 by 13 by 12 contains 1,440 cubio
feet of air, tho available oxygen of which
is used up hy ono person in half an hour.
What to breatho then becomes the great
question, especially for persons unacquainted witb tho only way of producing good health and long life. Breath is
our lifo—moro to us than food. Breatho
puro fresh air day and niglit. You cannot get too much of it. Fresh air is tho
ono mighty disinfectant. It certainly is
its own purifier; nothing can tako tlio
placo of puro ventilation.
Wo suffer most in winter for want of
ventilation; tho outsido cold makes us
closo all tbo apertures in tbo rooms,
whilo in summer tlio beat makes us open
all tho doors and windows. I tbink it
preferablo from my standpoint to bavo
less heat in tbo rooms, to air them every
'■vo hours, to get rid of tho furnaco
*ases, ant' in tbo evenings to get away
with tho deadly carbon from our gas
jets. Let cleanliness bo tho watchword
in every home, from attio to cellar.
Keep plenty of disinfectants around tho
washbowls and water closets. Iu damp
cellars keep charcoal ahv.ays. It is simple and cheap. Lot iu tbo blessed sunlight every whero you can. Nover mind
the fading of furnituro or carpets; better than tbat our lives and thoso of our
children bo tbo forfoit.
Sunshino not only gladdens our hearts,
but it steals iuto tho corners and makes
the surroundings pure. Whero sunshino
enters, every room will bo healthy. Get
the musty odor out of your offices,
stores, overy placo of business. Bettor
stand cold air than breatho slow death.
Livo in open air all you can, Take a
brisk walk eountrywards every day.
Qo to the hill tops, but remember "tiod
breathed into your nostrils tho breath of
life." So learn to keep your mouths
closed. 'Tis a good thing to practice.
Breatho through your nose at all times,
as mouth breathing is only an acquired
habit and brings thousands of ovils.—Boston Globe.

A   Figure* Th.it Pulll Out    IU   Watch aud

Professor Charles ltk-tn-1. tbo inventor of
iho (Jying machine  which created so much
interest a few yenrs ago, is just completing a
i mechanical wonder wbich is an astonishing
piece of meohaa ism.    It promises to create a
great furor throughout tlio country.    He ban
been ovor a year experimenting with it, and
has at last achieved results which at the out*
start seemed Impossible.   He was given carte
blanche from a watch manufacturing concern
to get up tho novelty, time and expense being a secondary  consideration.     Professor
j Michel has kept tho matter secret, and has
j permitted no one to enter his study except-
j Ing one or two intimate friends.    A reporter
j was given a private view last evening.
I     Tho entrance to the studio is by way of a
j dark staircase on John street.    Double doors,
I a screen and a heavy curtain shut out the
j daylight.    Electrio lights aro used to work
j by.   Thero are all sorts of grotesque heads,
j arms and bits of plaster anatomy banging
urouud tbo room, aud upon the work bench
are brass molds and a variety of fine tools
for tho purposo of working in steel and brass
!     Tho new wonder is a lifo sized youth of per
I Imps sixteen years of age.    Ho is a fine loot:
I ing lad, in perfect imitation of tho average
! boy of tho present ilay.    Tho   figure  stands
I upon the floor, und is uttired in ICuickerbock
'  ts and laced shoes, vest, coat, etc.—toallap
, |iearances a living boy.    Professor RIcheldid
: uot approach tho figure, but spoke to it, eay
j ing, " Good evening,  Bobby;   what thno is
j iff"   The figure turned its head and bowed
I *.li;;litly. and with Its left hand pulled back
! ho coat.    The right bund, which had been
liangtng at tho side, was lifted up to tho vest
pocket and drew out a watch. The watch was
then carried up to tho ear, at the same timo
tho bead turned so us to bring the ear down
iu a listening attitude, while tho eyes closed
Whon the silent youth was assured that the
watch was ticking tho band dropped slightly
lorwurd; the head turned so as to bring the
Inco to look full at tho watch, the eyes opened
and a pleased smile spread over the features.
I'ho head was then tin-own back, tho hand
which held  tho watch   between the thumb
nud index finger returnod the watch to tho
vest pocket and was then gracefully strung
tack  into its resting position   hy tho Bide.
I ho  mouth  opened,   and   with a pleasant
laugh tho figure said:   "It's just half pasta,
So naturally wns all this performed that
ior an instant it seemed as if tho figure wus
ni actual living being. Thero was no jerky
movement, nor tho slightest jar or noiso. Tho
■yes opened and closed nud the head moved
ibouttoall appearances like a living one.
Professor Rlchol laughed and said, "Whatdo
you think of it?" and then proceeded to ex
plain how it was operated Inside tho figure
is an electrio motor. This had been sot in op
'ration by touching a coucealod button in the
iloor several feet away whero the professor
had been standing. Afterwards he opened
iho chest of the figure and exposed where
■ ho cams, springs, weight balances, spirals
and levers which had caused tho arms and
nead to move. The cleverest parts are thoso
whloh cause the wrist, thumb and fingers to
uove. The articulatory mechanism Is very
-miliar to that employed in a phonograph.—

Emperor William-h Swords.
The late Emperor William only used two
swords and ono saber throughout his long
fighting career. Tho flrstsword was his boyish
weapon, carried from 1810 to 1834, the sec
ond was a present from the Czar Nicholas,
which served him from 1834 to the time of
the war with Austria In 1800. On the mem
orable day of Sadown the emperor adopted
an infantry saber, which ho wore to the lost,
find on which ho had engraved the names of
all his victories in the Austrian and Franco
Prussian campaign* These historical weapons aro to bo stored tu tlio Berlin museum,
together with tho saber belonging to the
emperor's father, Frederick William III,
which always stood by tho sido of his writing
' table in his study. —Boston Transcript.

When tho men of MD came to California
they ware suddenly out off from many of the
habits, usages and customs of tho older com-
munltiaa in which they had been born and
bred. They found themselves umong a new
*ot of neighbors from many countries who
bad in similar manner i»eeu *-o cutoff. All
bad been turned out of ruts of thought which
' had existed for generation*, and  itit-> which
aid communities always settle.
Tho literary men of old coimtwes can write
: dullness and a rehash of other men's thoughts
for generations beforo (hey aro found out.
Children aro taught directly or indirectly to
regard with reverence the emanations of
lODie sL'iit-fossilizod brain, although in such
emanations they are neither interested nor
amused. But they must know certain things,
(>r protend to know tbem or admire them, anil
why! Because they would bo call Ignorant
If they did not.
Now, when men ure turned loose in such a
great pasture ns was California thirty-nine
yenrs ago and find themselves even for u
' short timo beyond tho dictation of college*
und universities and B A.'u and LL.D.'s,
there come3 a tendency on their part to kick
up their heels and run rampant for a time tu
tho intellectual sense.
They seem infected with the wild, unsubdued nature around them, and hi their first
sense of freedom they tlo many wild, grotesque and even Improper things. That ia
why your ancestors, the argonauts, gavesu'h
dreadful names to these towns—such au
; "Hang town," "Murderers' Bar," "Shirtail
Canyon," and the like, it was a reaction
trotn-fi.e pretentious stylo so long practiced iu
tho eastern states aud older countries. Thf
! tendency to call somo ono horse town—Rome,
I 01* Athens, or Ithaca—names generally suggested by some village literary pomposity,
too, shows bis classical education. Reveling
in iheir freedom tho argonauts iu the eurlier
days invented within a couple of years a now
sot of terms, almost a now language, bred out
.if the country itself und the now conditions
and modes of lifo above them—such as
"Panned out," "Givo up the flume," "Broke,"
".Strapped," "Busted" and "Petered out."
Men liked to talk improperly and iu au oui>
landish fashion, becauso In the older states
the schoolmaster's rod first and too rod of
; popular opinion afterward had been so long
! hold over them to inako them talk properly.
They havo beeu mado so to do in so far as
thoy did not out of love, but fear, nud anything learned out of fear will ho rejected af-
: terward for a time, oven though it bo a good
thing.   It is a luxury for a boy to wade
through a mud puddlo and soil his    i thes
when at homo he has been from first to last
I licked into clean garments, und the first aui
last thought associated  with a pair of cleou
< pantaloons is his mother's threat tliat if he soils
them he will bo punished.   California gave her
first settlers liberty to dress, talk and act in
many things about as thoy pleased.  Of courso
j when mon first havo liberty in anything they
1 are apt to abuse it, or rather make a bad Uao
; of it.    But liberty they've got f i have somo
■ Lime or other beforo they can learn to make a
: proper uso of it. You can't mako an expert
' horseman unless you givo  him  full liberty
with tho horse. That Is a verv shaky kind of
goodness or virtue which always does the
L'omnieudublo thing 1 ecu use some one else
jays it is the thing to du. That kind of goodness is very often deep down In the depths
wanting to do the forbidden thing, but not
| daring to do it for luck of opportunity.
Many of your solid cltteens of today, nil-
; lavs of church, state and society,  during
, their earlier years in California weut for
things forbidden In the older states "flat
footed."   They went Tor tho fandango, for
, faro, for monte, for tho bar—for anything
■ and everything which tho Now England Sun*
i day school said was wrong. They went and
j saw, and tried and tasted, and drank to the
dregs, and found tho cup bitter, and ths-ac-
) count, when footed up lu the ledger of
1 health, to bo a losing ono, and being men of
I judgment, balance and common sense, they
I put away tho evil thing onco and for-
' sver, having satisfied thomsolvej out of their
-jwn experience that tho evil thing did not
i pay, and they really wanted no more of lt.
Thoy could then .ass tbo gilded portals of
■ danger without caring to go In, and that Is
j probably moro than over they could have
i done had they remained In the older states
[and trod nearly the same path their fathers
; trod.
X believe thoroughly that it Is far better
for ono to sin mid tin in good earnest softs to
know tho evil that comes of it than not to sin
and yet hnvo always a covert desire to do so.
Bomo of our very good girls and boys, both
of smaller and larger growths, covet a great
deal. Thoy would dare tell no one, hardly
themselves. The result Is, I Imagine, that
they may keep on coveting and live coveting
aud dio coveting and go to glory coveting,
and if it bo truo that there no thing can be
hid, and "oven to tho tooth and forehead of
our faults we must give in evidence against
ourselves" wo may havo some difficulty in
getting within the golden gates and getting
imr checks cashed at the bank of eternal
But this is a danger that the old seasoned
argonaut who has seen for himself aud tried
for himself need not fear.
In other words tho 'forty-niners had a
better chance to bo natural than in'tho older
communities. It may lu some cases havo
been a disorderly kind of naturalness, but
was it not better than no naturalness at all?
Brown, of Tuolumne, used to say at times,
"I do wish I could lie consistently and per-
iistently. Alas I I cannot. The truth will
fall out of my mouth at times In spite of all
my efforts to provont it, and at the very time
It most hurts my business."
Thoro was a noble honesty in this. You
dread a man far less when ho says to you, "I
am a thief. I will steal at times. I can't
help it.   You must bo on guard against me."
Such a man hangs out his sign and gives
you a chanco to guard yourself against him.

Anglo-Indian home. 'I'he other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to tlie
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances,

Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhu*,

as, general Sedative, that have otc-irred

years. In Cholt.aic Diarrhoea, and even if
thc*more terrible forms of Cholera itself, wc
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 best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj]
fession and the public, as we -"fe ofthe

than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE

I the 1 Ith of July a steamer  was  sighted
from the deck of the Triumph and Capt.
McLean at once concluded that the  ves-i
sel was a United Slates cutter, either the

The steamer followed iu his wake for two

complete Chinook dictionary which will
enable us in future to keep up with the
Indian news ol the district. We have
been informed by the "Old Man of the

experienee born of long association, that
it, is impossible for 11 tenderfoot to move
iu the society of the Hyas Tyees of the
northern part of the Island and vicinity
without a thorough knowlege of Chinook,
hence wc would recommend strangers to
go straightway to Kaper, Raper A Co.,
and purchase this open sesame to the
Chinook dialect.

On Saturday morning about ."> o'clock
the boat-builders on the water front near
the foot of Gamble street heard the report
of a pistol, but dial not pay much attention tn it. Some little tune after a man
named McDonald, working oil the
Moodyville Company's wharf, at the foot
of Gamble street) found a straw hat with
blood stains upon it and .1 revolver lying
near the edge of the wharf. On loosing
into the water he saw Ihe body oi a man
floating on lhe surface. He immediately
telephoned for Ihe police.
The body wus brought lo shore and
was discovered to be all that remained
nf a man named John Robertson. In
his pockets were $12 in cash and a
couple of bank books showing *!K>0 to

The Columbian of Saturday says:—
The salmon catch lasl nighl was by long
odds the largest sines the run commenced.
Soins of the boats fishing opposite the
city netted nearly 300 tisb between live
o'clock last night and five o'clock this
morning, but many boats near theniouth
of the river heat these figures with ease.
At noon to-duy the nets were hauled out,
and will remain till Monday morning at
six o'clock, which will give the fish every
opportunity to find their way inland,
Millions of fish will pass up the river
during the two days, and it seems, from
a shortsighted standpoint, at least.nl-
niost a pity that they should pass un-
eaught. The salmon pack for the past
week is estimated by competent judges
to be fully 80,000 cases, snd the total
pack so fa"r for the season fully 100,000
cases. The canneries are as busy as tbey
can possibly b«, and there are 110 complaints now of a lack of material to
work on.
