"Modern conveniences," in caso of accident,
often cause more trouble than tho want of
tbem. Here Is a ludicrous example tbat
illustrates it—or at least it shows that people
who wado in rubber pantaloons must keep
rightsideup. TheHarrisburg (Pn.l Telegraph
tells tho story at tho expense of a well known
minister who is vary fond of trout fishing:
A friend mado bim a present of rubber
trousers, attached to which wero heavy boots,
tho wholo arrangement forming ono piece. I
Ho waaletl In tho streams and  fished,   and ;
guyod tho other fishermen who didn't oavn :
gum trousers, and had lots of sport.
At night, when thoy camo In tired and :
hungry, tbo dominie would bo nico and dry, j

Ono morning thoy woro aU standing on the '
bank, watching him wading in deep water,
and envying him, when all of a sudden be
stepped on a slippery stono, his feot went up, j
and ho went in over bead.
They fished bim out, and found ho weighed
about a ton, ths water having filled up his
boots and trousers to tbo waist. Tho funny
part of it was that they couldn't pull off tho
combined boots and trousers, and so they had
tostandhimonhlahead against a treo until
tho water all ran out.
It was a very undignified and uncomfortable position for a minister, mode moro so by

London, July 21.—Balfour will go to
Scotland in November on a stumping
tour to ofset in a measure the effect of
Parnell's visit to Edinburgh. The Irish
leader's triumph in that city ie the sole
topic of conversation at clubs and elsewhere. Tories and Liberals alike express astonishment at tbe warmth with
which he wss received.
Besides Labourchere there is only one
member on the Royal Grants Committee
who refuses to sign the committee's report, liis name is Thomas Bait, Radical
member of Morfeth. Despite this practical unamnity, however, the report is
certain to rouse the most violent storm
against the royal  family that has been
also Muldoon. Cridge was anxious to
pay over the money on Friday, but those
moEt intereetetl in the disposal of the
stakes aaid there was no need of hurrying.
Sullivan has already received $41100 ol
this sum ; $1000 was his bet with Kilrain
on entering the ring, and $3000 being his
share of the excursion money and pate
receipts. Of this sum he has, in all probability paid out fully $2000. When the
B'uke money is disposed of Sullivan will
receive $10,000, whicli will bring up his
total receipts to $14,000. His backers
will receive the other $10,000, whicli will

Old Circus Trick..
Now that I am out of the circus line I do
not mind telling you one of the secrets of the
business. It Is one of tbe cutest tricks in the
profession of a ticket seller. While wo were
down south and in small towns where the
people were unsophisticated, wo would advertise our big elephant, our dens of lions, tigers,
bears and other animals, when we only had
horses and mules. That was years ago, bo tt
ever, and the peoplo now have to see all tho
animals in tho street before they patronize
the show. One fake which every one In the
show was "on to" was the red ticket. A man
with a young lady would walk boldly up to
the ticket stand, and to Impress his lady
companion would pull out a roll of money
The ticket seller would see it, and after returning the wrong change and ticket, would
put one of these red slips into the man's hatband, saying, at tho same time, that it would
take him "clear through ths menagerie, circus and concert." It was but a mark for tho
other follows, and that man would be bored
to death by the candy, peanut, lemonade,
concert and song book man, and when they
got through he would still be a mark for the
pickpockets. If ho got out of the tent with
any of that roll he went In with lt was not
his fault.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
drowning*. Courtship.
It Is rather startling to see a journal In the
modern Athens gravely announce that
"Browning wrote 'Lady Oeroldlne's Courtship' in two consecutive hours." As it was
written by Elizabeth Barrett some years before she becomo Mrs. Browning it is not quite
clear how it should bo ascribed to her bus-
band. It was, moreover, written by Miss
Barrett in twelve hours, which, though six
times tho "two hours" of our Boston contemporary, was so swift that its production
will always bo recorded among the excep
tlonal literary achievements. In this poem
(written by Miss Barrett before she had ever
seen her future husband) she alludes too book
of poems ho had Just published under the title
of "Bells and Promegrnnntes," in a line tbat

accomplish by this manoeuvre is not
quite clear. The matter has been brought

Paris, July 21.—The international
labor congress held a session to-day and
Mr. Bowen of America, Knight of Labor,
made a speech explaining the operation
of trusts and pointing out the danger
which they are threatening workingmen
everywhere. The congress passed a series
of resolutions requseting all governments
to oppose monopolies in raw material
and urging workingmen to organize
against trusts. Next session of the congress will be held in Brussels. The congress to-day decided to hold a demonstration in every country in Europe and in
America in favor of eight hours for a
working day. The demonstration is
fixed for May 1st, 1890.
Cairo, July 22.—A reinforcement of
800 British troops have been sent to Assouan.
London, July 22.—The British iron
steamship Altnacre, from Iloloa for an
American port, with a cargo of sugar,

American ehip Rosie Welt, from

been wrecked in Bramble Bay Straits.
London, July 22.—William O'Brien

that the Jury that returned a verdict in

Superior, Wis., July 22.—All is quiet
among the striking laborers. The militia
is null here awaiting developments. It
is generally believed the men will return
to work in a day or two, as the prospects
are unfavorable to them for the demanded advance of wages, and many familia-s
are in destitute circumstances. Officials
are still on guard, and taking every precaution against serious results should
there be an outbreak. The trial of men
arrt'stcal for leading the rioters is set for
July 30th.
Cutler. Me., July 22.—The Spanish

all during the last week. The men are
still working on the Esplanade. The

Tlie Mayor remarked that as all the
men were working on the Esplanaale
they *aould get through all the quicker.

that the construction ol fifty-two war
ships had been begun during the current

Telegraphing Cheaper Than Writing.
There has lately been invented a new system ot synchronism which, it is claimed, will
make it cheaper to telegraph messages than
to mail  them.   Dr.  J.   Harris Rogers, of
Washington, D. C, is the inventor, and he
claims that the world will be almost revolutionized by his discovery.   Tho now system,
Mr. Rogersaays, reduces tho English alphabet
to ten elementary characters.   The messages
are prepared by means of a machine resembling a typewriter and manipulated In the

A determined attempt at highway robbery was made last Friday evening about
seven o'clock by two men on the Hasting Road, Van-Oliver. At the hour
named Mr. Johnson, the Proprietor of
the Retreat Saloon, waa driving home
from Hastings accompanied by his wife.
When near the most easterly of what are
known as the "Three Bridges" on the road
a|»hort distance beyond the brewery, two
men were met who ordered him to stop
and threatening him demanded his
money. Mrs. Johnson attempted to get-
out of the buggy and take refuge in
another vehicle whicli came along but
thi men prevented this. The noise and

Aid. Baker—It was passed in the City
Council some time ago that the Esplanaale he attended to, antl now Aid. Abrams
wished to put the men to work on Cooi-
mercial Street. Tlie gravel taken from the
beach won't assimilate well with that already on the Btreets. We have tried it
ou Bastion Street and it was a failure.
Aid. Peck gave it as bis opinion that
gravel from the river would "set" well,
antl that Aid. Baker was wrong when he
thought the gravel was to he brought
from tlie beach.
Aid. Abrams' motion was then put to

Aid. Mahrer hoped that some would be

The Mayor appointed Aldermen Abrams, Mahrer and Webb to final out the

Aid. Webb—What is ta. be done with

it of any account?
Aid. Peck—Put it on Mill Street.
The Mayor—We were told a short time
ago that we could use whatever was available and would receive a rebate on the
balance that was worthless.
Aid. Baker—Mr. Hunter told me when

that the railway crossings should be fixed

Webb, that the Council resolve itself into
a Committee af tbe Whole to consider

Mayor Bate was voted into the Chair.
The committee, afte. hearing the bill
read, rose and reported the bill complete

On Aid. Mahrer's motion the bill was
read a third time by title.
The Mayor—In view of the possible
danger ot fire wo ought to keep a good
supply of water on hand, and also see
that the hydrants are clear and ready for

Aid, Mahrer—I am informed that some
of the hydrants are ont of repair. The

Toys for Great Britain.
Great Britain gets about £600,000 worth of
foreign toys every year. Now, as it is reckoned that there are rather moro than 15,000,-
000 of children In the United Kingdom
15 years old and under, it follows that the
outlay for foreign toys is not much more
than 9 pence per child. Most of these articles
como from Germany, which sends to British
dealers toys of tbo value of £320,000 a year.
Holland is second, with £125,000 worth;
France follows with £90,000 worth, while
Belgium is a fairly good fourth with £70,000
worth. Considering how clever the Americans are, lt Is singular that tho United States
supply only £8,000 worth of these Joys of the
children's heart Yankee inventors do not
care to waste their smartness on the trivial
toy.—New York Telegram.
Americans and Money.
The American Is constantly accused by
Europeans of worshiping the "almighty dollar," and great was my curiosity to Judge for
myself of the Justice of this charge. After
calm observation of the ways of men in
America, I came to the conclusion that the
dollar was certainly not only the unit of the
monetary system, but that lt was also the
unit of the metrical system. However, I
soon saw that, if the dollar was coveted and
held In great respect, it was not so much for
itself as for tho luxury it was the key to; in
other words, that avarice was a ice almost
unknown in tho land. There is a lavishness
in tho American's way of expending his
money that redeems his trick of taking off
his hat to it whenever he sees it—Max
Photographing the Sky.
Professor William H. Pickering has succeeded in detecting a number of new nebula?
by means of photography. The region sur-
roundiug tho nebula of Orion was selected for
these experiments, and from the results the
author concludes that, by photographing tho
entire sky, four or five thousand such objects
may be discovered. Only in case the large
nebula of Orion should prove to embrace all
the now nebula- In its limits, this proportio
would not hold good. The experiments show,

We have recently had occasion i" notice the feeling in the New England stales
among worldngmen against unrestricted

similar agitation in at leasi one of the

have emigrated lo newer countries in the
hope of gelling "ne ire elbow room," only

wages of the artisan or laborer. The
Secretary of the Melbourne Chamber of
Commerce writes to the London Chamber: "There if ample scope in this Island-
Continent for tho energies oi a population whose requirements would give em-t
ploymeiii to,-ill ihe factories of thc mother
country by occupying and developing the
immense tracts now lying waste in Australia.'' Unfortunately botl
and lhe I'nited States the majority ofthe
immigrants prefer to stay in Ihe large
I'ities, rather Ihan carve a home and com
potency out of the wilderness, thereby
serving to glut the market for lahor. It
is, we admit, both a selfish and an un
tenable position lo take up—that newcomers on landing must in effect "move
on." In England we know that hand:
are idle, and hearts are hopeless in the
very heart of an  Empire which  holds
forth in the far distance the future of j
warmth, food, comfort, power, and  prosperity.   In England, if we are  to judge
from  newspaper  reports,  agriculture  is i
rendered   unprofitable  by  foreign  and |
colonial   competition,    land   is    going;
out   of   Cultivation,     and    her    maim-
lecturers are   threatened   by  the pre-
valence    of    acute   distress.     But    if
she     '-an      send      her      unemployed
hands lo Canada,  Australia, or  Soiilh
Africa, they become  doubly profitable.
By their absence from home they relieve
congestion, and by their presence in the
colonies, they are developing units of a
cumulative value,  improving their land
and—tor many years to come at any rate
—buying  British  manufactures to the
amount of $40  or  -"50 annually.    We|
have said that we heartily sympathize
with the colonial artisan  in this matter,
and vet it is not easy to find the remedy.
Here lies the Paradise, yonder the To-
phet of ground-down misery; here the
sunlit skies and open expanse of veldt or
prairie, yonder the reeking unwholesome
state of crowded towns. British Columbia, like Australia, is badly in need of
population,  and like Australia, for the
want of it, resembles a ship  underman-
ned.   We have land to offer to all such
at a merely nominal cost, but woe betide
the leader who places himself at the head
of nn indiscriminate mob of emigrants
on an unknown errand in a new and insufficiently explored region. His followers, always sanguine at first, would soon
rebel and clamour Ior the  fleshpotS of

bondage.   II England, as appears from | LoNI)ON 0rrlCR-a Cornhill, ondon.    Branches

A gentleman who has but recently returned i
from  (California   was met at   the Weddell
boose yesterday    Ho Is an Interesting con* i
versatiunullst, and a master of the Spanish
language.   "The letter 'J' In Spanish," said i
he, "is a puzzler to those who first attempt to
learn the language.    I will tell you a story
which 1 read in a California paper that will
Illustrate this."   The story ran something as
follow*!   "A few days since a stranger from
tho unconverted  wilds  of  tho east,  where j
mugwuin.iery was born and tender feet attain [
their highest stato of sensitiveness, came out
to Pasadena to visit a friend.    Whilo walking ]
along Fair Oa lea avenue one day  ho said to j
his friend:
*l'Thero goes a man  1 met at  La Junto,1
giving the 'J' Its natural sound.
You mean l-a Hunta,' replied hia friend.
repulsive application of raw veal, and the discomfort of masks and poultices. Many of
these devices sound anything but cleanly; yet
the end to be attained was deemed worthy of
any inconvenience or suffering.
Tho constant and pet-severing uso of wator
only, had theso ancient domes but known it,
would havo effected tho desired transformation far more thoroughly; hut a fixed article
of belief with them in securing a good complexion was to abstain from washing tbo face
This idea Is said by a keen writer to havo had
fiomo grains of sense in It, as, when tho dogma
prevailed, bathing tho body was not practised
to any extent, and had the faco alone been
favored with ablutions tho unclogged pores
would speedily havo brought to tlio surface
the impurities that should havo escaped
through tho numerous outlets kept hi working order by the daily bath.
This error prevailed a long timo ago; but
even now a traditional woman, somebody's
grandmother or great grandmother, who
must have bad something feline In her nature, is brought to tho front with her bit of
flannel, which sho never even dampened,
merely polishing off her pretty face with it
every morning; and because of this habit—
we say in spite of it—sho had a complexion
-of lilies and roses I
It is quito possible to go to the other extreme, and utterly ruin the skin with soap
and water. A handsome brunette declared
that she owed her rich clear coloring and
satin texture to a liberal use of common
brown soap; but as this soap is the coarsest
and strongest of alkali preparations, nature
had probably'been extra generous in this
case, and given a complexion that remained
beautiful in spito of tho most ignorant at*
tempts to spoil it. Twice a week is often
enough for the use of soup, which should bo
of the purest and most delicate kind; and
just beforo retiring is tho host timo to apply it.
A lady who retained hor fine, fresh complexion as long ussho lived, which was some
years over 70, always washed her faco at
night with very warm water, using white
Castile soap once ortwicoa week. Her hands
did tho work of a wash rag and the snap was
rinsed off with a softspongo. The complexion
should never bo exposed to tho outside ah*
nor to tho fire within an hour after washing,
and the samo timo should elapse after a wnlk
or drive beforo applying water to tlio face.
It should at all times bo protected from wind
and sun by n veil, the thicker (hu better, nud
green and gray aro tho best colors to use, ns
blue draws tho sun and causes freckles.
Sleeping in a mask can scarcely l»o called a
comfortable proceeding, but It is said to bo a
marvelous whltener of the complexion, and
two or threo hundred j-cars ago it was in
common uso among the Kronen court ladies.
Tho fashion has been revived In the "cosmetic
masks" so often advertisod, and used with
very powerful applications. But soft water
and a closely fitted faco covering of quilted
cotton or chamois skin are more efficacious
than theso olaborato^ and expensive appliances, and thoy aro certainly harmless.
A clear, fresh complexion gives a look of
cleanliness to the person possessing it, and
tho practicoof cleanliness will best accomplish this result, as thero ia no heautillei
equal to tho daily tepid bath. But any water
will not do, aud hard water U almost worse
than none. If not naturally soft, it should
bo mado bo with ammonia or borax. That
wonderful old lady, Diana of Poitiers, who
persisted in being beautiful at such an uu-
, reasonable ago, Is 6aid to havo used no cosmetic but a daily bath of ruin water. This
is a wonderful preserver and freshener of the
complexion, but at tho present day it is a
somewhat inaccessible remedy. A handful
of bran to a basin of water 1ms n very cloans-
ing and softening effect, and oatmeal is
equally good.
Tho ancient Egyptian women of tho higher
class, whoso complexions were of roso loaf
texture and coloring, bathed aot only daily,
but almost hourly, and never woro then* linen
a second time without washing. As frequent
a change of underclothing as possiblo Is a
decided beautifier of tho complexion, and this
luxury, once indulged in, is not easily given
up. Diluted lotos water was the favorite
hath in tho land of the pyramids, but our
owu Klorida and roso waters nro considered
even better.
A salt bath, too, lapxcellcnt; and it Is not'
necessary to go to the sea shore for lt, as a
fow cents' worth of rock salt will supply the
luxury for a month. A good sized lump dissolved iu a basin of water is all that is needed
for a single application. Besides Invigorating
the system, this bath is said to freshen the
complexion and restore tho appearanco of
youthfulness. Ono certainly "feels good"
Many simplo purifiers, grently in vogue two
generations ago, when cosmetics wero considered "Biuful," have lost nono of theu* active
virtues. Among these old fashioned romedies
a tablespoonful of sulphur, with as much
molasses as is needed to mix It, taken every
other morning for a week, and then, with an
Interval of three days, resumed again for another week, has quito a magical effect on a
muddy or eruptivo skin. Cream of tartar is
also good; milk, if it does not disagree with
the stomach, is a very beautifying beverage;
and grape juice, pure and simple, gives the
loveliest of tints, becauso it makes the purest
A glass of hot water, as near tho boiling
point as can be tolerated, taken about an hour
before each meal, helps greatly to keep the
complexion In order; and half a lemon may
bo added if desired, but no sugar. Powdered
charcoal Is often efficacious. A teaspoonfui
mixed with water should be taken three
nights in succession, and then followed by
citrate of. magnesia to remove it from the
system. *

cure; and a proper or improper diet is suro to

throne sho was too young and too inexperi- I
enced to formulate a new code of ceremonial i
costume. She did not devise a court dress,
but she found one. It was essentially of the
bare shouldered sort, but the "nudite des
gorges" which prevailed in 181.8, and for several years afterward, had a perfectly Innocent motive. Few iadies who "follow the
fashions," or who consult the hundred and
one fashion periodicals pnured out from the
press every month and every week, have any
Idea of tho extreme simplicity of the patterns
of female attire which were in vogue fifty
and oven forty years u(;o. It is sufficient to
say that the bodice and tho skirt of a dross
were generally in one piece; that tho gown
fastened by hooks and eyes behind; that the
skirts wero never "draped," and tbat their
sole ornamentation was flounces. The only
practical way in which a lady could show
that she was In full dress waa to wear a low
necked dress and to bare her arms. Moreover, bodices were, wben made low, universally cut horizontally Instead of on a bias,
and the female novelists of the last generation found unfailing material of fun iu depicting the torments undergone by growing
girls at evening parties in their endeavors to
prevent their low necked frocks from slipping
off their shoulders.
When a lady went to court she glorified
herself with a train, a tall "panache" of
plumes, and as many diamonds as fortune
had favored her with; otherwise tbe cut of
her gown did uot materially differ from that
of the school girl's low necked muslin frock.
Nowadays everything In this direction is altered. The bodice of a fashionable ball or
dinner dress has as many angles and curves
as the diagram of an advanced problem in
Euclid; while the skirt, with or without a
•rain, is an elaborate and delightful puzzle of
puffs, panels, folds and furbelows. The charm
of modern female dress lies chiefly in the fact
that, if a lady so chooses, sho con go as bare
necked as Neil Gwynne at Hampton court, or
as discreetly veiled up to tho throat as Mary
Tudor, and be still in evening dress; that she
can exhibit her shoulder hlades to the utmost
by wearing a bodice cut behind In a V shape,
and that, In front, she may open or close her
corsago, depress it, or make it ascend, just as
she likes. At court, hitherto, no such lati
tilde has been allowed. Low necked dresses
bave been adhered to year after year, to the
generation of innumerable colds and coughs
among the ladies who bave had to sit shivering tn their carriages in tbo Mall, and In tho
bleakest early spring weather, before they
could reach Buckingham palace on drawing
room days. To these sufferers from tho grim
exigencies of etiquette tbe new "high court
dress" rescript will come as a most gracious
and graceful boon. Health, common sense
and good taste will alike benefit by this timely
concession, which is modified only by the
harmless requirement that tho "fichu" of the
bodice shall pass "under u stomacher such as
was worn in the Eighteenth century." The
"Eighteenth century" is an elastic term, antl
tho court dressmakers may be depended upon
to make It suit their own notions of a tasteful
■•high court dress."—London Standard.
Advising Gen. Grunt.
Private soldiers have theu- own privato
opinions, even about tho behavior of their
commanding officers, and now and tben they
cannot help expressing them. The historian
of the Ninety-sixth Ohio regiment cites an
instance, at tho siegt* of Vicksburg. At 9
o'clock overy morning, fn full view of tho
three forts, and always over tho same course,
Gen, A J. Smith could bo seen riding the
same black pacer at lightning speed.
At that hour, therefore, the Confederate
artillerists stood to their pieces, knowing
they should have a chance to shoot at tho
"old white hat" which tho general always
woro. As a consequence tho boys came to
expect a daily battlo shower at precisely 9
Gen. Grant, too, made his daily investigations, at first riding about with his staff, apparently paying no attention to consequences, individual or collective. At last he
seemed to discover that his appearing with so
many attendants caused an unnecessary exposure of his men, and next day he came
alono. This did not lessen tbe enemy's attentions, and on tho following morning he appeared without insignia of rank and mounted
on a mule.
He halted in the rear of the Ninety-sixth
Ohio, surveyed tho position In open view of
the enemy, and, Intent on knowledge, coolly
drew his field glass, took a steady survey,
apparently not being aware of the well aimed
shot and shell that whizzed past or exploded
above and around bim.
This play of fireworks over to the soldiers In
the trenches was a Uttle trying to their
nerves, and one of the men became thoroughly indignant.
"See here, you old fool," he shouted to the
distinguished observer, who was only a few
rods distant, "if you don't get off that mule,
you'll get shot I"
Some one informed the man who it was to
whom he was administering such peremptory
"Well, I don't care]" he retorted. "What's

Uow to Make Frtendn with a Dog.
A goal many peoplo aro bitten by dogs,
when very few need bo. In tbo first place
people should not meddle with dogs wbo do
dot know them. Every uow and theu some
body startles a dog by laying a strange Laud
upon him, pokes him with a stick or pushes
him with the foot and "is bitten by a vi-.-i-.ui*
dog."   Why not let tbe dog alono!
There are people with the bad habit of
meddling with what does not concern them,
and there are children wbo have beeu taught
no better than to touch, if they can, whatever takes their fancy. These are the people
bitten by dogs. Not once in ten thousand
times does a dog molest a person who minds
bis own business, no matter how crabbed the
dog may bo.
If, however, you are bound to approach
and touch a dog, do It properly. There is
only one way. It Is this: Put out your hand
easily and confidently to the dog, so that he
may smell it. Put it to hts noso. If he sniffs
at U and wags bis tail or otherwise shows
friendliness then you may speak to him and
pat him on tho head if you like, and perhaps
use other familiarities; but if, when you
offer your band, the dog remains sullen and
passive, the sooner you take away your hand
tbe better. Never approach a strange dog
witb either timidity or menace; but, as we
have said, the best way is to let all strange
dogs alone, and get auy desired information
about tbem from those who havo the honor
of their personal friendship.—Our Dumb
Antpials. _^

From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Greal
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 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, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salel
we fancy their soj'.irn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr, Collis itrowne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhea,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a*., general Sedative, that have ot-bURed
uno^t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diurrhara, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used '.ny other iotul of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly ihe best, and
also from a sense ol duty we owe to the pro]
fession .and the public, as we nre ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of

Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnancellor Sir VV.

I not play at all, had the visitors at once
| conveyed to the cricket ground where thc
"Nanaimo Junior Uand" enlivened matter* considerably by tlieir spirited play-
1 iug. A large number of ladies, liesides
j many trousered spectators, witnessed thc

i and the necessary preliminaries finally
arranged, the light was too had to allow
of anything approaching good wicket to
be played, so the pro tern. Nanaimo Captain decided merely to have a little
friendly practice for an hour or two—the
real match to take place to-day—wickets to be pitched at 11 ' o'clock
a. ni. in order to give the visitors
an opportunity of getting away by the
Rustler in the evening which, by the
way. was specially chartered to tako
them back to Vancouver by the Nanaimo
Club, as the Rainbow was unable to delay her return trip. Tbo home team
went to the wickets first, and some half

visitors were sent in to give an exhibition of what was to be expected to'day.
The Kev. Mr. Clinton played a splendid
game as well he may, when we remember that he is allowed to be "one of the
hest bats in Canada," besides having
been captain of his college eleven at Oxford. It was a rare treat to old cricketers
to see his easy, graceful style. After
scoring some thirty runs he was bowled
by Stokes with as line a bull as we could
wish to see. Two or three other Vancouver men's wicket were obtained before
tlie|stiimps were drawn for the night. It iB
only just to call attention to a fine catch
made by Miller who held a ball driven
hard by Dr. Lowson. Stokes' bowling
was all that could be wished. On a really
good ground it would be very deadly, ana
he is indeed one of the Nanaimo teams'
strong men, aB his batting is also far
above the average, On the conclusion
of thc game the visitors were conveyed
to the Windsor House where dinner was
served to the players composing the two
elevens, besides other members of the
club. Dr. Praeger fCaptain) took
the chair. The dinner which reflected
the highest, credit upon Mr. Dempsey,
especially as it was got ready at so short
a notice, being finished, the following
toasts were proposed by the chairman
and his vice, all of which were enthusiastically responded to: "The Queen and
Royal family," "Cricket, our National
(iame—long may it flourish," "The Rev.
Clinton, the best bat in Canada," "The
Church"; Mr. S. M. Robins,Superintend-
ent of the V. C. O, to whose generosity
the chairman bore witness in glowing
terms, stating that the very existence of
the ti. 0, C. was entirely owing to his
liberal aud kindly aid. Next came
"Prosperity to the coal mines of Nanaimo
and to the miners," "The Press," "The
Ladies," "The Host and Hostess" (Mr.
Dempsey and Mrs. Perche). The chairman was twice toasted in terms which to
him must have indeed been gratifying.

A survey has been made from the Texada Iron Mines to a point 4 miles distant
that will be more convenient for the shipment of ore than the place at present in

greatly to the value of the property of the
Iron Mining Company.
Several English capitalists have been
looking over the property of the Texada
Iron Mining Company, with a view to
purchasing it and running the works in

The capitalists express themselves as
