0ARLYLE ON HOME RULE,
"A Pearl of English Rhetoric," irom
the pen of Tlu.nias Carlyle, has been
published by Messrs. Field and Titer, of
the Leadenhall Press. As explained in a
prefatory note by "P.E.N.," the article
now presented to the public was writtvi
by Thomas Carlyle in the spring of IH-ls,
but is not to be found among any at his
republished works. In the spriHg of
1848 O'Connell Introduced Into parliament his celebrated Bill lor tbe ''Repeal
ofthe Union" as it means thut would, ut
all events, in some degree alleviate or pul
the Irish people in the way of alleviating their woes. The paper now published
is Ouriyle's answer to Hie outcry for repeal, aiid few who read it can doubt, as
''P.E.N.'' says,that "Ouriyle'sobjections
to 'Repeal' arc ofthe weightiest, and bis
profound and thoughtful
are .entitled to respectful
tion by those even who
differ most widely from tbem.
says:—"Let Irish patriots seek
other remedy than repealing the Union;
let all men cease to talk and speculate on
that. Bince once for ail it cannot he done.
In no conceivable circumstances could,
or durst, a British Minister propose to
concede such a thing. The British Minister that proposed it would deserve to be
Impeached as a traitor to his high post,
and to lose bis worthless head. Nay, if,
in tlie present cowardly humor of most
Ministers and governing persons, and
loud insane babble of anarchist men, a
traitorous Minister did consent to help
himself over the evil hour by yielding to
it and conceding its mad demand—even
he, whether be saved his traitorous head
or lost it, would have done nothing towards the repeal of the Union. A law
higher than that of Parliament, as we
have said, an eternal law proclaims the Union unrepeatable in
these counturies. Great Britain's
work, whatever her Ministers be, till all
her citizens likewise cease, recptires to be
done. While a British citizen is left,
there is left a protestor against out-
country being occupied by foreigners, a
repealer of the Repeal. Not while
British men walk erect in this island can
Ledru Rollins, American sympathizers,
Parisian organisuteiirs, and an anarchic
canaille be left at ritte practice in the
other. Never, in my opinion; clearly
never. And so were Repeal conceded,
Repeal would at all moments, by niglit
and by day, cry irrepressibly to be revoked—perhaps in a final way that time.

The Islander, under command of Commodore John Irving, with Capt, Hicks
as pilot, will leave for northern waters
to-morrow, culling at Port Simpson with
freight ami-seven fishing bouts left behind by the Sardonyx. At Vancouver
Dr. Seaward Webb," president of the
Wagner Car Company, and n party of
New Yorkers will be taken aboard. This
distinguished patty expect to have the sole
use of the steamer for ten days, pitying
therefore *4(i0 per day. This does not
include provisions and wine. The fastidious tastes of the party will be attended
to by a corps of servants, and a specialty
is their eatables, which they themselves
provide with their own cook. The
Islander has been thoroughly cleaned
lioth externally and internally, and presents a beautiful aspect as viewed lo-day.
The stearner returned from Nanaimo last
night whither Bhe had been to receive a
new propeller and coal necessary for the
round trip. To-day she was taking on

It may be safely said, that with the

Hubert,
The   Ifc-Tpla    Alliance - Buffalo   Bill
in Paris—Child Marriage iu
India Discussed.
'Ihe single line passes through n-
iiiiineruble tunnels, any one of which
might he blown up after a successful
landing. Many intelligent Italians see
these things und doubt whether In spite
of the vast expenditure on the national
armaments, thut any adequate return is
to be hoped for from a policy which may
place tlieir richest coast lands at the
mercy of a French descent, Thorough
going "Irredentists" on the other hand,
are indignant at an alliance which virtually resigns Italian claims to the city for
whicli tbev long, Trieste. The sincere
believers in
NATIONAL FREEDOM
are disgusted at a secret compact concluded with re-actionary and repressive
elements, and liy which tlie rising liberties of the Balkan States are deliberately
sacrificed to Hapsburg land hunger.
Lord Cross, Secretary of State (or India, hits just formulated' a reply to Ragtt-
natha Rao respecting child marriages in
India, which in effect slates that notwithstanding there is a distinct, growth
ot public feeding in India against the system of
CHILD MARRIAGE,
it iB not yet strong enough to enable the
British Government to take any legislative action. The difficulty of the problem
resides in tbe fact that it is a custom enly,
and has no justification in the sacred
books of llindostun. There is no re.ison
to suppose that in Vedic, India, girls
were married, as tbey now arc, almost
in the cradle. How this haa come about
is a matter of ari'liielogiciil Interest and
probably such nominal unions served
useful purposes once. Ragunutha Rao,
who is a distinguished Hindoo, recently
called upon the British Government to
put down the system, as it has put down
Bravery   and  other   evils,     lie   sayB:
Hritish blood and money may have
flowed like water in the efforts to stamp
out slavery iu other countries, yet in
Iniliii the British Government sits with
folded hands while the father is permitted to Bell in marriage Ids infant daughter of eight to a man of forty-live, already
rendered notorious by his marital tyranny. This child wife' is then separated
from the companionship of her own sex,
and is so persecuted und terrorized that,
child us she is, she is driven to attempt
suicide rather than submit herself any
longer to the capricious tyranny and
odious intimacy of her so-called husband,
and yet the Itritish magistrate is compelled lo state in open court that he has no
power to restrain a revolting oppression
of this character and it is justified Inlaw." This protest is made apropos of
the recent charge against Ilolkuris boii-
in-law. The case of Rukiiiuliui, wlio is
now in England, shows another phase of
the same evil. It has been pointed out
to Rao that is no reason lo despair of a
change in tlie Indian custom, [or in Great
Britain two centuries ago the age at which
children were married would now be regarded as scandalous. Mary Countess of
Buccleuch married at the age of eleven.
The affair caused commotion, and the
young lady was placed under
the charge of .General Monk
and bis wife until the commissary Court
passed judgement which they did by
nullifying the marriage on the ground
that Scotch law fixed marriageable age at
twelve for girls und fifteen for boys
Several even stranger Instances of child
marriages in Lancashire and Cheshire
were cited. Tito daughter of that grave
and reverend Prelate Bishop t'liadcrton
was so young when married that al the
ceremony she hud to beheld up to tlio
altar. The remembrance that such an
incident uureproved was passable in
"Good Queen Bess' golden davs" may
make Rao hope that the forces now at
work will pin an end to child marriage
in India and all the cruelty which the
system involves.
" The Sugar Bounties Convention is in a
bad way, but Baron Do Worms and his
adherents are working vigorously in
another direction, nnd wilh every prospect of success. Tbe quoBlion of importation (five or regulated) of foreign
cattle Ib again becoming prominent. It
need hardlv he slated that a desire to
guard both flocks and herds against In.
feci'on from abroad is univiP'til. Theagrl
cultural interest in a national interest of
the fli'Sl importance, and stock breeders
have a right to demand thai reasonable
precautious shall bo adopted against the
importation ot infectious disease. But
the Chamber ol Agriculture goes far be-
youd this, and the hot controversy of
some lew years ago, seems likely to be revived.
London, May 18.—Tbe leading statesmen and politicians who recently made a
tour ot Italy state that however brilliant
the reception given to King Humbert by
the Emperor tuny he, it will have little
or no ellect In checking the strong feeling
which bus set in among Ihe Italian people
against a German alliance. All the
financial evils thai now threaten Italy are
laid at thc door ot the Triple Alliance,
and popular discontent at the
CKEMAN YOKE
is so nipidlv increasing thai the full of
the new Crispi cabinet and the advent of
a pro-French ministry arc now freely predicted. No doubt the price offered to
Italy for the huge sacrifices she is now
making is considerable. In return for
her active co-operation with Germany
and Austria in the event of a war with
France and Russia, it is believed that
Nice and Savoy are the reward on one
side and Trentino on the oilier, though
it is difficult to believe that ilapsburg
will ever voluntarily consent to the surrender of the city of Trent itself, but
meantime these promised acquisitions
abroad are remote and visionary, while
beggary within her doors
S'l'AUCS   ITALY   IN   THE   EACH.
The fortune of war is never certain, but
itis highly probable that even in ibe
event oi the final triumph oi the three
allied powers, a large part ol the Italian
coast would for some time lie at the
mercy of the French fleet. Despite their
i lossal Ironclads, it is very doubtful, iu
the event of war with France, that
Italians will he able lo cope with the
French navy. The experience of the
Lissa is certainly not encouraging tothoi 6
who put faith in leviathans, and
HUOE ITALIAN V El SELS
will always run the risk ol being outmanoeuvred by much smaller craft. The
loss of a single engagement at the outf
break of a war would entail the annihilation of a whole plan of mobilization.
The principal coast cities on the West,
Genoa, Naples and Palermo arc wholly
undefended. The direct railway between
Rome and Genoa, Incredible its the fact
may appear, consists of a single line of
rails. A defeat, in Itself, would throw
almost insuperable obstacles in the way
of any rapid mobilization oi troops on a
large scale between Spc/.zi and Genoa,
and onward toward the French frontier.
In March last the Privy Council, which
cannot he suspected of any desire to
favor the consumer at the expense of
home producers of meat, came to the
conclusion that the official ban upon
Dutch cattle might safely lie removed.
Il was known that foot and mouth disease existed in Germany, hut the Department would be satisfied that the Government of thc Netherlands, which could
show a clean bill of health for the territory
within its own jurisdiction, bad established a sanitary cordon on thc frontier,
winch might be accepted as a sure
guarantee  to   (liter   through   from   tbe
neighboring   empire.    Obviously   the
Dutch might he thoroughly trusted to
keeps
V1U1LAKT  LOOKOUT
on the frontier. These considerations
seemed to the Privy Council to carry
convincing weight, and an order was
issued directing that animals from
Holland should he admitted into English
ports after June the first without either
slaughter or quarantine restrictions. The
Chamber of Agriculture at once took
alarm, and tbe powerful influence which
they are able to command waB brought
into action with characteristic energy.
The Government has been obliged to
retreat, and the operation til the order
has been postponed to Sept. 1st.
Lord Salisbury's efforts lo obtain the
Duke of Abcrcorn's services as
I.OllU-l.IEITENANT  OF    IRELAND.
are likely to be successful. The Duke's
father was very popular in that
office, and he himself stands just in the
right rank, being not one of those who
would raise an Inconvenient claim to lie
admitted to the cabinet, which is out of
the question, while the Chief Secretary
and Lord Chancellor of Ireland are of
that select body. In addition to very
great possessions the Duke is the only
one of the first order ol nobility who
holds a peerage In three kingdoms.
Some amusement lias been caused at
the Admiralty Olliee, and In geographical
circles at the recent announcement of
the discovery of a "new mouth"
or  THE   ZAMBESI,
The mouths of the Zambesi arc perfectly well known, and fully laid down,
both on Portuguese and English Admiralty churls, us well us Raveuslein's
map of 1881.
Mr. Rankin's conimiinications to the
British Foreign Office and Admiralty,
bave been critically examined, and it is
officially stated that it is simply an old
mouth, the hunks of which have shifted.
DREW  A REVOLVER,
London, May 18.—Henri Rochefort
and Pilotel, II French artist, met face to
face to-night in Regent Street for tlio
lirst lime since Rocbcfort's arrival in
London. Angry words were exchanged,
and Rochefort drew a revolver. A bystander seized tlie weapon in time to
prevent it h.'ing discharged and both
were arrested, The affair grew out of
a savage criticism in Rocbefort's paper
of Pilotel's caricature of Boulanger.
Pilotel challenged Rochefort to light a
duel, but Rochefort declined to meet
him, whereupon Pilotel publicly declined
he would thrash Rochefort al tbe lirst
opportunity.

holders are feeling decidedly uneasy over
the matter. They say that Trussel has
not carried away much of their money,
most of which was paid into the
Treasury. . It is known, however, that
two gentlemen have paid bim $10,000

EUAN     INTERVIEWED    ON    CRONIN's    D1SAP-
I'EAP.NCE.       '
Chicago, May 18.—Patrick Egun, ex-
President of the I,and league, before
starting for Chili, when inked his opinion
of Dr. Cronin's disappearance, replied,
"I discovered justrn atom of foundation
on which to base the assumption that he
bus been removed. That he was made
away with because of some knowledge
of crookedness in Dr. O'Bellley's account
with tlie Parnell fund, is more preposterous than probable. Chicago funds
which it is said were misappropriated,
did not go through Dr. O'Reilly's hands,
but were held by Dennis O'Connor, of
this city. I think souse Irishmen of this
city arc trying rashly to assume that
Cronin was murder I. This is going to
offend the comii'ittc >, and they ought tn
show better reasons for pronouncing the
case one of that sorl. Dr. O'Reilly said
it was iihsu'd to connect Cronin's disappearance with the business of hiB office,
ami flatly denied all insinuations of that
character, tinder hiB system of keeping
the accounts, it would lie entirely impossible to have done anything of the
kind intimated.
FELL FROM   A  SCAFFOLD.
Buffalo, May 18.—While two roofers
named Alex. Fraser and George Eddy
were roofiug fie dome oi the new
elevator of the Island, the scaffold gave
way and the men fell one hundred feet,
Striking on the roof of the boiler bouse.
Both were fatally injured.
The illness of Miss Maty Anderson and
Edwin Booth takes thc two brightest
stars out of the theatrical heaven ia
which we were to revel, but the man who
lee Is it most is Manager Dayman. Miss
Anderson was to reiipon the Grand Opera
House, after il had been newly fitted out,
and Booth and Barret were to open the
New California Theatre, but it looks now
as if be will have to rustle in order to
have good attractions for the opening
nights of his theatres.
The superiority in point of morals of
the American stage over that of any other
country has lieen curiously shown in the
past n'iBter in New York.' Of the five
chief successes, "Captain Swift" and
"Sweet Lavender," from Loudon, had to
be altered a good bit to suit American
modesty, a Parisian would scarcely
recognise "The Surprises of Divorce" as
chastened to the Yankee ear, and "The
Old Homestead" and "Little Fauntltf
roy," as successful as anv of them, are
purely American and Americanly pure.
A story which is going the rounds of
the London papers avers thatM.Coquelm
bus become infatuated with Mary Jensen.
"They met," says a British contemporary, ' 'at a dinner given to M. Coque-
lin by Colonel McCauil,, aud since that
time the eminent French actor has beep
madly in love with tbe pretty American
burlesque actrcBs." ThiB pleasing anecdote, has brought iorth ninny denials from
American correspondents, and induces
one New York writer to make Ihe gallant
announcement that he is "in a position
to slate that M. Cuquulin does not know
Mary .laiisen at nil, Md under any cir-
cumstanuos she is amply provided lor in
Ibe way of infatuation."

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
(JAMRLlNO.
Among the many vices which are common to mankind—without distinction of
race or country—is that of gambling.    It*
is usually during the houis of the nighl,
that   the votaries of this especial  vice
indulge in their favorite pastime, which
fact alone, causes gambling to frequently
become the primary cause of employment
for our police court.   Men  who—when
once the poison is in their blood, so to |
say—have "played" much, too frequent- j
ly become so Infatuated with the passion,
that they ure willing to risk tlieir all, on
the turn of u card, or the throw of a die.
It ia   needless  for  us to po;'it  out   the
fearful ill this vicious habit entails upon
the families of thos.' who habitually indulge in it. Pale-faced wives, or mothers,
sitting up for husband, or son; .trembling
children,   who   may perhaps receive a
caress, perhaps a blow, according to the
"luck"  experienced  by    the  gambler.
These, though bad enough in themselves,
are yet among the least of the evils entailed.   Money that should find its way
into the bauds of the storekeeper, has a
far different outlet.   The man himself is
distinctly lowered in tone, largely by his
associations and surroundings ;  and with
loss of self-respect comes a rapid descent
towards    misery,     and      degradation.
Granted that some one must win, yet
money  so  obtained,   never   seems   to
"stick," aa does the reward of honest
work.   It comes easily, and goes easily;
and comes most easily of ull to the "professional" gambler, who of necessity has
odds in his favor, as the "professional"
must always  have  when  pitted  against
the "amateur."   Besides all this, there
are surrounding evils accompanying this
card-playing for money, concerning which
we have neither space or time to touch
upon    at   present,     but    which     will
make themselves readily apparent to tbe
meanest apprehension.   If we were not
fearful of treading ujioii delicate ground,
we would ask our ministers to denounce
this hideous vice from the pulpit, for thai
it ia a vice flourishing iu our very midst,
is a fact patent to all.    Wc have no wish
to pas-i any strictures upon the conduct
of the authorities concerning the   suppression of tliiB crying evil—ull we ask is,
that the intelligent public should  take
the matter up in earnest, not in tile halfhearted fashion  in which the few spasmodic attempts at suppression, has been
carried on hitherto.     The  ultimate appeal is always to the people; the remedy
lies in their own   hands.   The   voice of
public opinion  now-a-duys is all-powerful; even "vested interests" quail  before
it, and we venture to think  that  if our
citizens—both men, and  women—would
earnestly use their best endeavors to put
down what has so long luen a disgrace
to nearly all tho towns  on  this Coast,
since the first "gold  rush" took  pi
the "authorities"  would soon see their
way to make the law not quite so inoperative as it appeaas to be at present.   Tbe
puling,   weak-kneed raids  occasionally
made upon gamblers,  appears   to have
hod nearly as much effect as wonld the
galvanising of a dead horse.     Wo fully
absolve  those who "enforce"   the   law
from blame.   The initial step is not with
them, It must originate with the people,
and power to check the crying evil must
be delegated to our magistrates, with the
sterti understanding that they do their
duty disinterestedly, and fearlessly.
TIIE   ABUSE   OF  HONEY.
The advice given by the sage old
Quaker to his son, "It's what thec'll
spend my lioy, not what Ihce'll make,
which will decide whether thce's to be
rich or not"—Is applicable to a large
number of young men, (and we fear
many who count gray hairs in their
heads as well), now in our midst. Most
good things have been said before, and
as such may be held as a species of
plagiarism. Tlie advice lias been given
in effect already by FRANKLIN, when he
wrote: "Take care of the pence and the
pounds wiil take care of themselves."
We have more than once heard sneers
made by our "old-timers," at the expense
of the "saving habit" of the Eastern
Canadian. This we bold to be both unjust and foolish. There is nothing admirable in itself, in the mere fact of
throwing one's money about. There is
perhaps no single circumstance which
bears so directly upon the character of a
man, us the use he makes of his money.
Niggardliness, all men with good red
blood in their veins, despise. But the
rightful use of money—and ils use cannot be rightful, unless duly economical
also—is a quality of which the possessors
are by no means so numerous as could be
wished. Men, far more than women, are
continually indulging in needless, if
small expenses, Buying to themselves,
that "it's only a trifle," yet forgetting
tbat the aggregate is serious. Ten cents
we grunt, seemB a paltry little sum in itself, hardly worth a second thought,
nevertheless when one reflects a moment,
wc are mildly astonished to find that
small ob tbe sum is, if one such coin per
day is saved the sum of $30 and a half is
realised nt the end of the year. The man
who wisHes to be rich, has won quite
half the battle when he has succeeded in
"saving" ten thousand dollars. We
mean that Bum mast be "saved," not
gained by inheritance or otherwise. How
many spend ten thousand dollars in a
few years in needless expenses, and then
J i in um; from .Mr.Go-i hen's recent speech
on the Budget, we arc led to believe lhat
at last the speck of blue has appeared in
tlie commercial sky, indicative of a
rigorous, and sustained revival of trade.
We think it will be allowed that when
trade Is bad in Great Britain, it i-; seldom
very good in her Colonies; and vice versa,
owing lo their inter-dependent relations.
Perhaps wo ought to make an exception
in tlie case of countries so young as our
own. The great staples of commerce
have been (with temporary fluctuations!
for years at an abnormally low ebb,
Sugar, wool, flout, and cotton have each
Buffered heavily—either from over-production of tbe raw material, or ruinous
competition upon tho pari of the manufacturer. Tho "bull" and "boar" operations of speculators, though they have
had much to do with tlie occasional
fluctuations in the markets of the world,
cannot reasonably be held to have had
any mal trial permanent effect upon the
excessively low prices which have ruled
for so many years. When ivcrelicct lhal
air. Goscben tells us that in the year
just dosed, the total receipts of the Exchequer amounted to tss,47u,uii,i or
.tl,ti4ii,0,iu in excess of the Estimates,
while the expenditure has amounted lo
£85,673,000 nr £041,000 less than the
charges which he (Mr. Goscben) assumed the Treasury would have to mod
twelve months ago." This looks very
much as though lhc "silver lining" luul
at last appeared. True Ihe surplus is lo
be swallowed up in Naval expenditure—
but what splendid figures lo play with!
Poor France, however—or rather rich
France—has bad lo raise an annual
revenue of about £112,000,800 (we quote
from memory only) since its death-struggle with Germany.

We neve una bit* tn iv'r.uii from a
smile, on reading an article headed, "A
wretched lot," in yesterday's Colonist.
The writer complains in a wounded manner, that Lord Lonsdale who lias been
i'doing" Canada, and the States, is guilty
of telling untruths, aa to bis adventures
iu tlie Arctic regions, lie appears to
have hoaxed the reporters shamefully,
telling them that he "penetrated almost to the pole."—We wonder he did
not describe its appearance. Occasionally
lie "went without loud for four Hays at a
tune'V-mtra&iVe dictul His Lordship
iuhhI be a veritable Pr. T.\NNi:it. We
think there are those ot' our readers wlio
will judge his Lordship leniently, when
they reflect how tempting it must be to
answer in some such manner as did the
nobleman in question, when "interviewers" without end, insisted on pestering
him with their presence, and plying him
with their questions, Whai man could
help "humbugging" his torturers under
such circumstances. The joke of the
whole thing is that the Colonint writer
fails to see where the joke cottios in.

PurcliiULTS Pay Well for tho Privilege of
Securing Goods on Time.
In a general way the monthly payment
stores afford a good index of tbo prosperity
of the middle and lower classes. Hard times
and lack of employment invariably make
themselves felt In delay or stoppage of payments, and the duration of stringent circumstances can readily bo measured by tho way
tbo payments aro resumed. A furniture
dealer was interviewed by a reporter:
"What course do you tako in coso of delinquency in payment?"
"There is only one advisable course, and
that is to tide over those who can't take up
their monthly notes. Tho public, I think, has
distorted views about the monthly payment
stores. Thero aro, doubtless, some sharks
among us, but most of us aim to do a fair,
legitimate business, charging but 10 per ceut.
more for our goods tbat tbo nieu who sell for
cash do. Taking back of goods is always
avoided, for there is no money in a sale if the
stock bos to bo taken back and turned over to
the auction stores. It Is only tbo monthly
payment stores whloh keep second hand furniture that can profit by the utter failure of
their patrons. Wo liavo families that we
have carried along a year, and I doubt not
that other monthly puynientstores luivu likewise. To harass patrons would ue to work
against our own inloreat. So fur us rates of
profit aro concerned, tho only clement of injustice In them Is one of which tho publlo
rarely thinks. If tbo account runs a year the
10 per cont. extra wo eluirgo is fair, for tho
risk, the cost of collection, and the loss of interest from having money outstanding is fully
oqual to tho additional into of profit we
charge. Our margin of profit is computed so
as to include a year's interest ou the regular
prices of the goods, but many, possibly the
greatest number, of our accounts are closed
in a shorter time—six months, say Thus on
a purchase of $00 or $75 worth of goods, arranged so as to bo settled in six months, tho
buyer pays 20 per cent. Interest on the
amount of the bill for tbe whole period, while
he actually makes a payment of a sixth of the
bill when begets the goods and a similar payment every succeeding month. When tbe account rune for a year the burden Is not so
heavy. If people can pay cash they should,
and every honest dealer in our line of business will toll them so.
"It Is unquestionably true that the form of
payment la a temptation to purchase beyond
the means to pay. We havo no trouble in
selling. Our greatest difficulty is to keep tho
bill down to what we consider a safo limit.
Pooplo do not stop to think that they pay for
their privilege of making installments at a
tolerably high rate. One reason ot this lack
of judgment is probably becauso women do
so much of tho buying at the monthly payment stores. Thoy often fail to estimate
carefully what they can do, aud tho result is
that they become a sourco of trouble to
themselves and us. Often, too, men who
were drawing good salaries at tho time of the
purchase, got out of work soon after, and
any miscalculation on their part makes payment an uphill work, Tho spread of the
payment stores has been suprldng. Almost
overy large city now has a number of 6uch
concerns, which seem to do more than
their ordinary share of business. In Chicago I doubt if thero aro as many
as there wero two or threo years
ago. The reason of this Is not that the scheme
does not work successfully, or that tboro havo
sprung up too many for tho population. Tho
capital required for such a business ls much
greater than tbat which ls roquisitoforacash
trado. It was a common pructico for dealers
to roaltzo on tlieir monthly notes at 3 or 3 per
cont. a month. Thoy wero unablo to carry
their own paper, or borrow at legal rates, and
tho result wus that a number of concerns have
failed during tho last year or two. I think it
Is all nonsenso to talk of tho monthly pay-
mout stores cutting into tho regular trado
disastrously. Wo catch n class of patrons
who would not deal ot a cash storo, since they
would uot bo likely to savo up tho necessary
monoy. I believo that monthly payment
stores aro an inccntivo to thrift and economy,
second only to tho building associations."—

Our Postal System.
If there Is any point on which our postal
system docs not Btand In need of Improvement It ia lu tho cheapness of postage. Our
newspapers aro carried within tho county of
their publication for nothing, and ovory-
whero elso for next to nothing, and a letter
of an ouuco weight is transported from any
point to any other ot om- enormous area of
3,000,000 square miles for tho smallest unit of
lotter postage known in Christendom. But a
far moro important matter, and one wholly
neglected, Is that of postal delivery. In other
civilized countries tho postoffice, receiving a
lotter from tho writer, undertakes to deliver
it to the person addressed.
In our own happy land tho postoffice receives tbo letter, aud (except iu the case of a
privileged 20 per cent, of tho people) undertakes to carry It to within five or ton miles of
tbo person addressed, and keep It there till
called for. This ls tho mero barbarism ot
postal service, worthy of tho dark ages before
Rowland Hill. Tho enormous cost mid loss
which it involves becomo obvious to any ono,

Distrusted Because The'.*- Search Unearths Nothing "Outrage *•.»."
Ono sloppy morning, several weeks ago,
two young women living on Uso Hill met ai
tho home of one of them for the purpose ol
dissecting their fellow men anij women, comparing uotes und exchanging ex-perlences, and
In duo time made a mutual discovery that life
in St. Paul was decidedly fiat aud stale, If not
altogether unprofitable.
"Now, In Now Vork," yawned Marlon,
wearily, "wben society begins to pall, the
girls go slumming and do nice things like
that.'' Marion is a blonde, and looks as it
her spirit walked only In the sunlight of
angels' wings. "But here the most exciting
thing we ever do is to give a masquerade,
which makes us a lot of worry aud work and
expense, and when it Is over we find we have
only succeeded iu making ourselves perfectly
hideous by a misguided selection of costume,
and have had nothing but a dancing party
after all."
Maudo thought they ought to be able to do-
vise something that would have at least a
grain of splco. "What do you say to going
to the dime museum!" she said abruptly.
"Thero might bo something in it"
"There is," exclaimed Maude triumphantly,
"und It's a 'Human Balloon.' I read so lu
tbe morning paper."
"1 suppose he would have a few clotbei
on I" remarked Marlon doubtfully.
"Oh, of course; tights anyway.    Let's go.'
And so it happened that the two daring
young ladles concealed their urlstocratlo features behind thick veils, and trusting tlieir
lives to the Integrity of the cable (as tho first
step in their reckless adventure, perhaps),
camo down by the common route and sneaked
—aye, verily, sneaked into thedlme museum.
"Heavens! What smells sot" gasped Ma
rion at the top of the stairs.
"It's tho aroma of novelty, machere. You
may change, you may alter the house if you
will, but the scent of the freak will cling
round It still."
"That sounds as If you had been here before," aud Marion cast an eye of suspicion
upon her friend.
"Well, I haven't, but I went Into a side
show once at a circus. Marlon Hilltop," she
whispered, grasping that young woman's arm
with a black-and-bluo clutch, "I actually believe that man ls in his skin I"
"Nonsense! Let go my arm. It's pink
silk, and not much of a fit either; but It does
look a little like skin at first."
The human balloon rose and spoke bis little
niece; then drawing a prolonged Inspiration
no expanded hts chest and stomach until bis
body was more than twice the original size,
held it a moment, and with a slow expiration gradually decreased to his normal proportions.
"It makes me sick," declared Marion.
"I believe it's a trick," rejoined Maude.
"I'll bet anything it's some kind of a rubber
arrangement that ho blows up some way
with air.    Let's look at tbe monkeys."
"Thanks; I meet too many English apes
capering around in society to And anything
amusing in tbe African species. Maude, whal
do you stsjpose the men are looking at
through those round holes over there on tba
side!"
"Well, I'vo beon watching, and there hasn't
a slnglo woman gono over yet. I expect It's
something pretty bad. Would you dare lookl
Merciful goodness I   Is tbe place on Urol"
"No, mom," responded a bystander, eject-
lug a stream of tobacco juice from a swollen
jaw. "it's the crowd a-rushtn' down to set
tho seals."
THEY TAKE HI TBE SHOW.
Tho two girls, determined to seo It all, followed the unsavory tbroug, and to this day
the possible impropriety tbat hid beyond that
row of bull's eye holes remains a tantalizing
mystery to tbem. Tho performance of trained
seals thoy found really Interesting. Tbe
jnvenile seal was quite as kittenish as the
stage juvenile always Is; the topical song
seal sang tho usual number of verses with
the traditional lack of voice, and received the
sauio old encores; the funny business boro tho
authorativo stamp ot ripe old age, and on the
wholo tho entertainment was just as well
worth seeing as two-thirds of the combinations put upon the regular boards, and hada
decided advantage over the latter In that the
porformers were seals aud not persona.
"I didn't seo any fur on them that looked
like my sealskin coat," commented Marion as
tho curtain fell.
"Perhaps they've shed their costs. I think
I've read tbat some animals do shed their outside skin when they gat in a warmer climate."
"No, I think you're wrong, Maude, about
that But perhaps the fur grows on tbe Inside. I shouldn't wonder if it did, because if
it was on tho outside it would got so stuck
with Ico crawling around on Icebergs"	
"How do you know tbey doP' Interrupted
Maude.
"Because, don't you remember, the picture
In our geographies always represented seals
as sunning themselves on icebergs*'
At the toot of the stairs tbey found a man
selling tickets for "a flrst class theatrical performance by the English Novelty company
of celebrated artiste; gentleman will please
remove their hats."
"A variety show," whispered Marlon.
"I'vo always been dying to go to ono. I
guess we won't buy reserved seats, but stand
back hero.   We may bave to leave."
And a "variety" snow it was, but absolutely tree from any impropriety. Tbey found
it sufficiently interesting to remain to the
close, although considerably disappointed at
the absence of anything sensational Hie
vocalists had bettor voices than ths average
singer in flrst class burlesque, and wen costumed rather moro modestly. The jokes, if
somewhat moss grown, were at least not unpleasantly suggestive, and tbs specialties
wero all cleverly done The artist who played
popular airs on a violin with nny thing under
the light of the sun from a washboard to an
old shoe, as Maude afterward said, gave better music than Hooy does with bit peculiar
instrument In "A Parlor Match," to say
nothing nf tho man who proved that real
melody can bo extracted from a penny whistle in tho hands—or mouth, rather—of a
genius.
"Well, wo haven't seen or heard a single
thing the least bit outrageous, have wet" remarked Marion, In a disgusted tone, as tbey
walked down Seventh street "But It's been
a great lark. Wonder it any one saw us.
Suppose wo wind off with blue points and a
pint bottle!"
Maude hesitated. "1 would, but 1 want to
be at home by S, and I've got to change my
gown, and curl my bang, and"—
"Maude Anthony, you have an engagement
with ; oh, you sly thingl   Well, I'll go
over to the Ryan and make a call. Tra-Ia-

woman to whom he could confide bis deeper

"Discounting."
In the old haggling way of trado which
baa, lo this country, ut least, happily gone
out for the most part) nnd been replaced by
the more honest one price system, in which a
dealer puts a fair profit upon his goods and
sticks to that, it was customary to demand a
great deal more than tho askor hoped to get.
One time on tho Texas frontier a man came
into a camp riding an old mule.
"How much for the mule?" asked a bystander.
"Jin a hunderd dollars," answered the
rider.
'Til give you fivo dollars," said the other.
The lider stopped short, as If in amazement, and then slowly dismounted.
"Stranger," said ho, "I ain't a-golii' to let a
Uttle matter of uinety-flvo dollars stand botween me and a mule trade. Tho initio's
yourn."
Another story, somewhat of tho same sort,
ls related of an old tenant farmer who, on
paying his rent, told his landlord that he
wanted some timber to build a house, and
would be much obliged if he would give him
permission to cut down what would answer
for the purpose.
"Nol" said the landlord, sharply.
"Well, then, sir," tho farmer went on,
"will you give me enough to build abarn?"
"No."
"To make a gate, then?"
"Yea."
"That's all I wanted," said tho farmer,
"and more than I expected."—Youth's Companion.	
Philanthropy or Advertising?
"Do good by stealth and blush to find it
fame" may have been excellent advice when
Mr. Pope wroto, but it would require resbap-
ing'to bring it into harmony with modern requirements. A Yorkshire coal dealer who
has been doing good by stealth ou quite an
extensive scale, now has cause to blush at
finding himself fined by a police magistrate.
This philanthropic trader owns a weighing
machine which gives bis customers twenty-
one pounds overweight on every hundred
weight Somo time ago his attention was
officially drawn to tho fact, and he rucdved
solemn warning that if ho continued his sinful benevolence he would bo summoned. A
weighing machine that gives overwoight Is as
illegal as one that does tho other thing, tho
law demanding a perfect adjustment of bal
anee. This coolly Samaritan rof used to believe, however, that his stealthy benefactions
were punishable, and so persisted in adding
the little bonus to every hundred weight of
blaek diamonds that left his shop. A fine of
0b, -md costs is tho result, the bench expressing tbo opinion that it looked a little hard to
punish a man for cheating himself to benefit
his customers. It does look hard, no doubt,
but what a splendid advertisement!—London

Danger Be hi oil tho Boards.
In many old country houses thoro are wide
mouthed, discarded flreptaees thnt havo been
walled in temporarily or permanently, not
with brick and mortar, but with boards, Tho
droppings of soot and ashes from tho flues of
the chimney throat soon accumulate inn combustible heap on tho old hearth, liable, any
hour, when thero is fire in any stove leading
into the flue, to ignite by a falling spark or
cinder and set lire to this woodon partition
of a, perhaps, unused room, and the press
haa another mysterious incendiarism to report
The only safe way is to brick such (ire-
places, or, if this Is impracticable, tho old
hearthstone to be spared for occasional warming, its flreboard should be often removed
and its walls and base stones brushed clean
of soot and dust filled ashes, that are so readily
ignited, else, somo night may find your home
cremated.—Good Housekeeping.
Itemedy for the White Grub.
The use of benzino has been found effectual
In Prance in destroying the whito grubs (tho
larva? of tho May or dor bug), which often
do immoiiBo damage, especially in dry sen-
sons, to lawns, strawberry plants, seedling
plants and other nursery stock. Holes nre
made in the ground Infested with tho grubs
with one of the sharp iron dibbles used sometimes in transplanting smull plants, mii 1 the
benzine Is poured into thorn. Fifty grains of
benzine are used to tho 'square yard, and em'e
is taken to insert it above tho piano of thc
feeding ground of tho grubs. In an experiment recently mado by one of tho French
forest officers, and reported at a meeting of
the National Agricultural society, tbe grubs
on twelve acres were destroyed at a cost of
only $3.30 per acre,—New York Telegram.
Men and Gloves.
The American has no time to wear gloves
unlesB for the purpose of keeping his hands
warm. Even the "gentleman" outfora walk
will carry his gloves in one hand when the
air ts warm. There aro too many men in a
hurry to permit tho glovo wearer to be us
frequent a sight as the bare handed man.
Men are careless, too, and others have white,
tapering fingers that thoy want to show, or
they wear big rings thut will not let a glovo
go over them, while other men havo to wash
their hands so often tbat gloves would bo a
nuisance to tbem. Society plays and society
novels always make their gentlemen fulfill all
the requirements of the glovo code, but it will
have to be some future generation that lives
up to the mandate thereof.—Good Housekeeping. 	
A New Chinese Railway-
It ia reported that tbe Dank of Hong Kong
and Shanghai Is to float for tho Chinese government a 5 pei' cent loan of £500,000, to
enable the government to construct a railway from Tientsin to Pekln, an enterprise
long contemplated, the total cost of which is
estimated at £2,500.000. Tbo first and ouly
Chinese railway uow in existence—tbat from
Taku to Tientsen—is aid to be doing remarkably well The results of that experiment
have surpassed the expectations of tho gov
woment—Monitour dee Interets Materiel.

The president nf the French Republic
Mauagc-i to Live on 8'JO,OOO a Month.
YV'Sat People Eat and Drink at the Rig
I5:ilis—The Luxembourg Palace.
For a consideration of 100,000 francs per
month, with houso rent free, and numerous
perquisites, Mens, Carnot consented to assume tho responsibilities of chief of the French
republic. Beforo fortune, more fickle in
France than elsewhere, smiled on him, hts
only inheritance was a good historic name—
for bis father hud rendered the state trim aud
laudable service—and his solo encumbrance a
wifo and small income. Now, a grateful
people allow him nearly $20,000 per ifcontb
for his individual expenses, and a free list,
suillcient to cover nil outlays for balls, state
dinners and receptions. It presupposes unusual tact and strength of character to be
launched suddenly from homespun to royal
purple without displaying tb1? marks of birthright. No one in Europe receives more graciously than tho president. There is a distinguishing porsonnlity about him, whether clud
in tbo regalia of the Legion of Honor, standing in tho midst of the distinguished men of
France, or walking nbout t\\c grounds of tho
exposition, conversing with tho workmen.
Thero ia nothing striking in tbe foco; it Is the
general bearing of tho man that impresses
ono    Ho seems to tho manor born.
THE  THESDENT'S  RESIDENCE.
Even though tho Elysue, erected by Molet
in HIS, has counted among its residents the
Comtod'Evroux, tho Pompadour, tho Duchess
of Bourbon, Murat, Napoleon I, Louis Bona
parte, Emperor Alexander I of Russia, tho
Duko do Berry and Napoleon III, it may be
reserved for Carnot to carve out a career of
usefulness more enduring than any of these.
Tlie palace ts separated from tho Champa
Elysoefl by u large, well cared for garden,
aud but for the memories clustering around
it has nothing especial to commend it to tho
tourist. Two sentinels from tho Garde Republican stand at tho main gateway, and but
for this tho English embassy, a littlo farther
down, might very well bo taken for the Palais
d'Elysco. Tho internal arrangements were
much improved under Napoleon III, but
even yet tho homo of tho president is an exceedingly modest affair. There are scores of
privato hotels In the immediate vicinity far
handsomer In overy way. Tho largo drawing room is not as imposing as tho ono In tho
White Houso, and the general reception
rooms aro not as cheerful and bright as nro
those of tho presidential mansion in Washington. Still, with an excellent service, a
Quo larder, with tho best of wine cellars and
a-good stablo, M. Carnot ekes nut a comfortable existence.
Threo balls given during tho winter are
paid for by tho city of Paris. To each ball
from 4,000 to 0,000 invitations aro sent out.
Motley is tbo only wear. Bacchus nnd Psycho
aro tho Penates that grace tho open fireplaces
of this magnificent building. Bacchus at tho
last ball dispensed 00,000 glosses of beer, 1,200
quarts champagne, 1,800 quarts Bordeaux,
4,000 sandwiches, besides equally largo quan
tities of turkoy, lobster salad, pate do foio
gras, etc., etc. Psycho kopt tho young people
actively employed until 0 in the morning, and
tho chief of police, who snoozed comfortably
In bis office, was not called upou to preserve
tho peaco. Floquet, the Blaine of Franco, tho
premier nnd chief of tho cabinet, receives a
salary of 100,000 francs per year. In addition
to this ho hns a Inrgo secret fund at his disposal, upon which ho can draw whenever ho
likes. His drafts upon it aro largo and frequent.
Tho president of thosenato has only a small
salary, but in lieu thereof tho government
gives him tlio Palace of tho Luxembourg to
livoin. Up to Juno, 1701. when tho Count
of Provence, afterwards Louis XVIII, left
it, this hnd always been a royal residence,
having been built for Mario do Medicis.
Passing through various stages of stato prison,
lu which wero confined Beauharnais, Josephine, Desmoulins, Donton and Robespierre
—of tho Palais du Directorio, Palnis du Con-
sulat, Palais du Senat-Conscrvatour and Palais du Senut, tho Petit-Luxembourg has bo-
conio tho home of tho president of tho senate

EXPENSES WIDER THE RErUBUC.
Relatively, tho oxpenses have decreased
very considerably under tbo republic. Tho
civil list alono has been cut down 20,000,000
francs. Individual extravagance was much
moro exaggerated under tho empiro. There
was a centralization of wealth as well as of
power. Now both wealth and power ore
more evenly distributed. Tho general expenses of tbo country are, of course, larger,
becauso tho general necessities aro much more
urgent. But tho general expenses under the
ropublie, hi view of tho general necessities of
a largo standing army, an expensive navy,
aro much less than were tho general expenses
under tho empire, when such necessities were
less widespread. Tho absolute governmental
expenses hnvo been cut down ovor ono-quar-
ter, for tbo budget is not handicapped with
a long list of poverty stricken and dissipated
aristocracy drawing enormous pensions.
Tako tho Boulanger-Jacques political campaign as an Instance. Tho ontiro expense
was covered by private subscriptions, not a
penny being taken from tho public purse.
Tho Republicans in behalf of their candidate,
Jacques, expended 1,000,000 francs, whllo thc
Boulangor clique paid out somewhat over
twice that amount
Thus nearly $600,000 was put hi general
circulation In Paris, all of which camo from
tho pockets of Republicans, Royalists and
Imperialists. Tho empire encouraged lavish
display among its representatives; tho ropublie enjoins modesty and economy. Tbo
expenses of running tho foreign olllco have
been diminished one-half. Tho general expenses of tbo war department aro large, becauso a staudiug army of tho sizo thnt today
obtains in Franco necessitates tbo expenditure of largo amounts. Tho individual expenses of tbo general, staff antl lino offices
are very much less than under tho empiro.
Relatively speaking, tho budget is less than
under tho empire, and I am not at all suro
that it is not actually less, if wo add to tho
necessary outlay tho Individual expenses of
tho emperor's favorites, which wero paid for
out of tho war budget,—Cor. Boston Globe.
Death Rate In England.
Tho death rate in England for 1SSS, tho
statistics of which havo roccntly been published, shows tho romarkablo fact that it was
tho lowest average sinco 1837, when tho government first undertook tho keeping of accurate records. In IS87 tho ratio of deaths
was 18.8 to tbo thousand, and this was tho
lowest known till that time. But for 18S8 a
still better showing is mado, the ratio being but
17.8 to tho thousand. What this decrease in
tho death rate moans can bo better understood from tho fact that moro than half a
million persons wero alive in England nnd
Wales at tho end of 1SS3 whose deaths would
Ifavo boon recorded during tho eight years
18S1-88 had tho rate of mortality in thoso
years equaled that which prevailed during
tho ten years 1871-80.—San Francisco Chron-
late.

which is admitted by the profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy evei

known for Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE arts like a charm in

Sir: We embrace this opportunity of con*
grattilntlng you upon the wide-spread repudiation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J,
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over |
the East, As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, ami wc shall be
glad to bear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
nre happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
wc fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances

decry Nanaimo and say sho Is away behind the times. She may be, but if one
easts his eyes around and views tlie
number of new buildings going up, for
instance back of the station and on tlie
Hospital hill, also the clearing and building being done on the Newcastle townsite
he would be apt to change his opinion.
We very frequently bear the expression
from those who have been away from
Nanaimo for a short lime "Ilow the place
has changed!"

Constable Q. A. Keir, of Cowiehan,
arrived to-duy with a prisoner named
Harry Franklyn, charged with breaking
into the house oj F. 11.- McCarthy, railroad employe, on the loth inst., and
stealing therefrom u green silk handkerchief. Thojirisouer was committed for
trial; but as the theft was committed in
the district of Victoria it is probable the
prisoner will be sent to tile Capital to
avoid having to obtain a change of venue.
