London, July -.'.—When the anjloniu -)•'
ment was made lasl night that tha' eldest
(ion of the Prince of Wales hiul been bc-l
trothed to the sister of tlie  Emperor of •
Germany, it was  accompanied  hy  the
statement that the Queen would give the
Prince a marriage settlement and the.', ;
Parliament would not he askcal to make
provision for him.   This statement was '
received with undisguised satisfaction at
the time in all quarters, as  it, was  felt!
that the Queen could well afforil 'to look j
after the young Prince's housekeeping; j
but it seems that the taxpayers' joy was |
just a little premature,   fn the Commons
to-day the Speaker read messages from
the Queen commending to tlie House a
provision for Prince Albeit Victor and
Princess Victoria.   The reading of the
messages caused   considerable   surprise
among members.   Mr. W. Henry Smith
intimated that the   Government would
be prepared to consider messages next
Thursday.   Mr. Labouchere gave notice
that he would opposo all votes of .money
if made before the appointment of  a
Commission ou Koyal Grants to inquire
into the whole matter.
A  GENEROUS  H.  R.  NtlCSIDENi'.
Cincinnati, July 2.—A special to tne

that President McKean. of the Vandalia
Line, has made a proposition to operators to take their coal to Chicago *at ten
cents per ton less than present rate if
the operators will give ten cents mote to

points a way out of the present difficulty.
It has not been learned yet what action
the operators have taken.
DISTRIBUTION OF n*!.,rt00,f.l)l) AT JoltNsTinVN.
Johnstown, July 2.—Judge Cutnmings,
who has charge of the ilieliibiilion of the
money collected for the benefit! of the
sufferers hy the flood, arrived this morning. JudgnCumni'iii-a* C>'«i Uctkkw :vi»
ference with the local finance committee
in regard to tlie manner in which money
now at his command amounting to }•>,*
000,000 or over should be distributed,
After the conference the Judge stated
that no serious difficulty wus anticipated
in making an equitable distribution. My
ideas coincide with the local committee
except in one particular, 1 bad arranged
for tne applicants to swear to lhe amount
of tlieir liminctul damage. The local
committee is right inl hlnklng that when
a man is making his own statement he
will mako it bb Strong as possible. Precautions must therefore bo devised to
guard against this. Each applicant will
probably receive a certain percentage of
the amount of his losses. Only needy
sufl'erers are to receive compensation,
and some time must necessarily elapse to
ascertain who the needy really are,

Nn I'lnttcry,
A lady went into a Bostou millinery store
Llio othor day to havo some Alterations mado
in a bonnet sho hud lately purchased there.
Hot littlo daughter of 4 yearn, who went
ivlth ber, soon found her way iu among tho
workers In tho "hack store,''whero sho fell
into admiring wonder over tbe pretty materials they wero handling and making up Into
hats antl bonnet*
Seeing thi.s, and gacjng also that her mamma would bo obliged to wait gouig time, tbo
working girl.s gavo her somo scraps of the
materials, together with an old hat and bonnet frame, telling her sho, too, might sit
down and trim with them. She watched
them quietly for a timo ond theu eot at work.
Tho quickncf.3 with whieh she caught the art
nnd imitate.! what sho had seen -was quito
surprising.
Finally ebb got the things trimmed somewhat to her liking nuti held them up for inspection.
Tho milliners all began to praise tho work
extravagantly, telling her that it was beauti-
f ol and as well dono as they could do it
Tho little ono listened a moment, drewher-
I self up haughtily and looked offended.   Sbe
I -tried to check tho praiso and evidently strug*
j gled^or suitablo words.
"I don't liko you to talk that way," sho
\ zcid'," at last,
"Why not, dear?1' asked tbe rnilliners.
"Becaii'-e," answered the child, "it doesn't
| sound as if you meant it. | It's tho first time
I'vo trimmed,   and—and—well, I'd   rather
I you'd bo mojo cross than so pleasant about
it."
; Sho did not final just tlio fight words, but
: sho made two things quito clear to her hear-

rim-,- wh. i took advantage oi the opportunity io viih Vancouver on Dominion
Day had a mosl favorable trip owing to
good accomodation un the Steamer Yose-
init" an.l tho lovely weather that prevailed. As far as I know only about 300
persons from Nanaimo availed themselves
ni this chance to visit the Infant City
oi' Britisli.Colutubin while-celebrating the
great dav.
Thi' Yo*-i'inile if- a large anal commodious cess. 1 anil her otlio-ni showed the
graa'.est atttsOtihn to the w'ants of their
passengei-6. The crowd on thc bout was
a mosl orderly one, very little horseplay
anil skylarking taking place, though oil
the trip over several Jumping matches
tool; place on the lower deck between
our local sports. The Nanaimo Junior
lirasa Hand were aboard the boat and
discoursed sweet strains iu a most liberal
manner, as without much intermission
they played nearly all the way oyer to
Vancouver. 1 may mention en passant
that while wandering around the city of
Vancouver, I heard some very complimentary remarks passed about the playing of tlie Junior Band, persons saying
how well they played in unison considering the short lime I hey had been organized.
Owing to some delay in starting from
Nanainio. the Yosemite did not arrive at
Vancouver until too late to witness the
procession of the various trades anal industries which was spoken oi as TSoing
very interesting.
The Pacific squadron was in English
Bay niul presented a verv imposing appearance, ami several persons availed
themselves of the kindness of tho oflieers'
and visiteat the vessels, nnd came ashore
very much impressed with the majestv of
England's navy.
liie ooat races between the Jack Tars
of the various men-of-wai in the harbor
were v.atclieit with great interest, as the
sailors seemed to enter so heartily into
the fun of the thingand pulled lustily.
A great deal of time was wasted, as
usual, liefore getting the events started,
noticeably so in the Fire Brigade .Sports,
whieh were timed lo take place at 1 p.
in., and did nol start until 1:50 p. in.,
and there were frightfully long intervals
between beats.
There was a gri at ileal of kicking over
thc hose reel i-oiilest whicli wus won by
Vancouver Hojse Company No. L', in 34

Thc Baseball game was won bv the
Kamloops team easily by 14 to l.on'd lhe
Cricket and Lacrosse matches were won
by Victoria. Tlie Sports, though very
elaborately gol up ami everything had
been done lo make Ihem attractive, did
not seem to attract muoh attention, the
the principal part of lhe visitors contented themselves wandering around the citv
admiring its stores and expatiating on it's
general growth.
The Reception Committee were very
attentive to their numerous visitors and
acquitted themselves oi their arduous
task in :i most public spirited manner,
taking care llial their guests saw everything that was possible to be seen.
One great feature of the day's amusement, to me, was the Art Exhibition,
which showed Ihe great, enterprise
of the i-ilizens of Vancouver, nearly
all the exhibits being the outcome of local talent. One painting of two little
girls was remarkably good, and another
scene. 1 think of the Narrows, near
English Bay. would have done credit
to a city of a much larger growth.
Quite il friendly hop was given
in the Hall during the evening and
was thoroughly enjoyed by those
present, even a Japanese suit ol armor
unbent under the genial influence of the
"light fantastic," and endeavored to join
in the general hilarity. This very enjoyable exhibition will be repeated every
three months and will represent the local
art productions for that period.
During the evening the wrestling match
Johnston v. Cameron, attracted considerable attention even though it took place
so Ear oul ol town. The match was one
hour catch-as-cotch-can, Johnston's favorite hold and one,hour sialc hold,
Cameron's preference, the man who
gains tin'mosl [alls to win ihe match.
In the lirsl hunt Cameron, who is a powerfully luiilt, big man, threw his opponent comparatively oasily with a body
hold in live minutes eleven s,vends.
The second bout, sido hold was decided
in favor of Cameron in live minutes
thirty seconds, and during the third
bout Johnston's hi,mis claimed a foul,
Which was not allow,-il. and Ihey withdrew Iheir man. Afler the match was
over Cameron said lie would he willing
to make a match with McLeod, of Nauaimo, and it would probably be one of the
finest wrestling exhibitions that has been
seen lor Some time iu British Columbia,
hot us endeavor lo havo it come olf in
Nanainio.
During the evening several lire balloons were sent up and created quid' a
lot of amusement, as every one walked
along with his or her bead high in the
air watching them, and many ludicrous
cn,-ai,niters look place, and .some few excursionists walked off the high sidewalks,
ranch to the detriment of Iheir tempers
anal to tlie amusement of the spectators.
The greatest attraction of tbe evening
was undoubtedly the Citizens Ball in the
Imperial Opera House which was well
patronised and deservedly so. The floor
was in magnificent order, thc. hull
spacious and thi- hand very good. I imagine about "DO couples danced on Ihe
floor, and of course tliera- were several
wallflowers as usual. Nanainio was well
represented, in fact o:,eof the committee
tolil mo that Nanaimo had contributed
"youth, bcaulv and knickerbockers."
The Nanainioilcs Were especially fortunate in being able to slay to the finish,
or nearly so, owing lo ttie kindness of
Captain Rudlin, who caused notice to be
given that the boat would not leavo until
8a.m. Everything at the hall was very
good, probably even the sandwiches
which constituted tlie supper if onoj
could have managed to dissect, tbem, hut
1 had tin' mistortune to fall foul of one
tliat  wns  totally   impracticable,  being'
built on tlie bra*s bound railway sandwich principle. I struggled hard with it
for a long while and then went outside
and picked the pointing out of a brick
building with the corners. I have it with
nie now and am intending to donate it to
the Nanaimo Museum when it starts in
commemoration of a very pleasant day.
It won't need petrifying.
A great many Nanainioites were so attracted by the pleasures of Vancouver
that they decided to stay fsr a few dava
and take in everything.
It was a weary, pleasure-spent crowd
that committed themselves to Captain
Riiallin's charge in thc early rooming,
but c. great deal of ehafl' and'amusement
took place on the return
trip, there b«iiig an almost
total absence of tliat species of animal
known as "drunks." Tbe band played

The recent police raid made on gamblers in a fashionable London West End
Club, and lhe fresh impel us given to the
agitation against the gambling tables al

Wi: wvri' agreeably siiprised to see the
vast improvement that has taken place
I ill tbo City of Vancouver since our  last
visit.    Our neighbors have indeed shown
great enterprise and deaerve the highest

eriain influential French Statesmen have i,..ti,ii     ,i  , ,       , .  ,' ™,

interest and importance a subject lhat,
so long as a love of speculation remains
Inherent in human nature, must always
lie attractive, names of cards in which
-any player may hold a bank are yet extremely popular, despite ihi' numerous
want to have everything in their city lirst
class, and they appear to he just the people to have what they wanl, When one
considers lhal only u few years ago the
site of Vancouver was a howling wilderness and also that since its inception it
has been totally destroyed by lire, one
can but marvel al tin urage and grit
of Its Inhabitants.
FflOil advices just to hand il would ap-
pear that all reason for anxiety on behalf j
of Ml'. It. M. Stanley Hie African erplo-
rer is not yet entirely removed. A son
of one of (he most powerful of the half,

broughl no news ofthe intrepid traveller |
whose friends cling to lhe hope that he
has gone round the south end of Victoria

station of I'salala where letters and provisions were awaiting him. Those British subjects who have trading interests
beyond the great lakes arc eagerly waiting for news as lo the whereabouts of
Mr. Stanley, as ihey are relying solely
upon Ihe greal American lo checkmate
the eilorts of the Germans who arc striving to monopolise the trade of this portion of the "dark continent"—a portion
so vast in extent, and so rich in palm
oil, gold dust, and ivory, that they may i
well feel that it's loss would be almost
irreparable in lhese hitler days when

markets of the world is so keen.

instances  ol   cheating,  which,   judging m „ ;„, ,, ;,....   „,-',- .,    .,
,,   ,. ,       ... '        r  The Inhabitants ol  Vancouver evidently
irom English and American newspapers,
are of such constant occurrence.   The
gambling tables as they are "run" in the
great cities of the States and of Europe,
offer strong inducements to, and are distinctly in favour of the.professional gambler, or of persons who, without having
lost lhc status of gentlemen, have taken
in play or the turf as all aid to their income.   Hence unless some exceptionally
big gambler concerning whose honour no
question can arise takes the bank, it must
fall into lhe hands of professionals, or of
those who resemble a professional as a
gentleman-rider does a jockey, a solicitor
an attorney, or an  alligator a crocodile,
and who know every point of the game;
lor instance, why it is better to lay the
odds of live to two after the lirsl game of
a rubber of whist is  won, than lo take
them, for the simple reason lhat if il be
even betting on every game it is three lo
one, and not live to two, against either
side winning two coups in succession, which the side having lost the
lirst game in n rubber must do iij order
io win. That it is always three to one
againsl two events on each of which the
hotting is even is easily demonstrated
thus: put one piece of money down on a
table: suppose the event won and add
another piece; put both pieces on lhc
second winning event and cover with
two others. The result is four pieces,
including the original slake of the hacker,
who lms thus won three pieces hy staking one. Odds in many games may be
calculated In this simple way. Our aim
in writing this article is not to give instruction as to the proper method of calculating the odds at a card table or race
course, but to show our readers lhat in
gambling as in all other pursuits and callings legitimate or otherwise, the profess-
ional must always have an advantage over
the amateur. Nothing can he moreexnef
than the method given above as to the
reckoning of odds and yet in nothing are
amateur hackers of horses more easily
fobbed oil'by professionals with less than
Ihe legitimate odds, thu'i in backing
double and triple events and two or more
horses against the field. Most ol" us have
no doubt read how the famous Lord Chesterfield once broke all three hanks at
Crock!ordsand howcorttdn English noble
men or Russian Princes occasionally
clean out lhe German tables in a successful tour. There is however, always a
little doubt about those stories; for thc
tables go on like the bookmakers on theturf
while the noblemen and Princes die beggared and in exile. Admitting that Iheluw
suppressing public gaming-houses in England stamped out much of the card playing fever, yet we feel that such a desirable
result would not have been attained
had the English authorities winked ut
tbe illegal practice of this vice alter the
manner of certain authorities much
nearer home. We are quite ready to
admit that gambling, like more than one
oilier vice whicli we could mention, will
so   long as  men  arc constituted  as al
present, continue to nourish to some extent. Our contention is merely thai ibis
law against gambling should endeavor to
make itself respected in British Columbia
as it tins done in Great Britain. Many
of our renders will remember tho paroxysm some twenty years ago, which caused
nu eruption of belting-shops all over
London and other greal cilies of Ureal
Britain. Al many of these an errand
hoy could risk hall'-a-crown or even a
shilling, on a running horse, or on one
which did not run. The effect of this
fatal facility was deplorable.    Thc police
courts  were continually copied  with
caHes of embezzlement. Clerks and shop
hoys emulated the vices of Iheir social
superiors in speculating with money
which was not their own. When u run
of bad hick set in Iheir defalcation could
not be made good, and Ihey passed into
the ranks of criminals, tt, was the old
story, that man and hoy are rather weak
thou wicked. We would urge upon lhe
public the extreme advisability of attempting to check this monstrous gambling evil which lurks in our midst. Let
us learn wisdom from the experience
of others. When we see countries as well
governed, rich and populous as Franco
and England, doing Iheir Utmost to kill,
not scotch, this social viper, we too may
well take heed.
Wi: notice rather a good story iu May-
fair, which that paper says comes from
the West of England. Tho agent of a
great brewery firm, finding himself with
:i largo quantity 0[ beer that had -'gone
off," and himself on the verge of an arrangement wilh his creditors in consequence, determined lo advertise this beer i
as a special brand prepared and flavoured
to suit aldermen and invalids. Having
widely advertised in all lhe local papers,
he next sent for an analytical chemist*
stated the ease, and asked him what was lo
be done. Thechemist considered the matter, and recommended a process of treatment which would restore the lone of tlie
beer, although still leaving il witb a peculiar taste. The beer was accordingly
treated as advised, when orders for enormous quantities readied the brewer of
this peculiar "Ionic ale." The beer is
now one of Ihe most popular in the West
of England, thoroughly believed in by
the public, and praised hy thc faculty,
although before il was chemically treated
it was nol worth a hit a hogshead, and
the brewer merely called 111 the chemist
ami lhe newspapers as an alternative to I
a Hat, in bankruptcy.
To see a woman drive a   tack is something  worth  observing.   She   will  lirst !
proceed to lill her mouth with material,
then lake a tack, slick it in the offending j
carpet, and firmly clutching lhe hammer
iu her right hand, prepare to come down
on the innocent  little nail.    But— alas!
for female calculation—she misses it and j
poiijuls her lingers instead ! The hammer
Is dropped,  and the Injured  member Is
thrust inlo llu' feminine mouth. The offspring at her skirts is slapped, and other
feminine means are found with which to
relieve ber pent lip feelings.when again the i
lack is stuck in its place. This time mieabile \
dictn, tho hammer hits it, hut knocks it on [
one side—a blow being given side  ways
to straighten It, which knocks tho point
off.   Another Is tried,-and after a sue-j
cession of thumping—sometimes on  the;
linger, soiiieliines on Ihe floor, and occasionally on the tack—it is  finally driven j
In.   And so  the  operation is repeated,
until the carpet Is down, and a dishevelled female with red and aching lingers,
crimson   lace,    and   impaired   temper,
stands proudly erect looking at her work,
and   congratulates   herself    on    having

ajiresat Itiaih ,.;a,l System..
Seeing as we do the many lines in
the country grouped into large systems whose ownership will no doubt
remain stable in years to come, permanence of employment and stability
of position is easy to be guaranteed
. and the corporations can now bettor
secure their own rights and strengthen
themselves against the encroachments
Ofthe public by drawing their employes more closely to them, showing
that paternal oare and solicitude for
them whloh lend to establish good
feeling and community of interest.
Belief associations under the guld-
ance of the  companies   will   do   this. ■
They aro nourishing on the Baltimore
ai Ohio and the Pennsylvania railroads.
The organization on those roads may
be taken as the type of what other
companies should do. On the former,
the scheme originated with the elder!
Garrett nearly ten years ago. At its
organization all employes could join
without regard to age. After a short
period those over forty-live years and
those who could not pass a medical
examination were not allowed to join.
All persons employed regularly by the j
company are required to pass a medical examination, must be under forty-
live years of age, and must join the
relief association. Thus il will bo
seen that nearly all their employes are
members. The compulsory feature
looks to an outsider like a hardship,
but the obligation is on him only who
seeks employment.
The employes are divided into two
classes—hazardous and non-hazardous:
and these two classes are divided
into live others who pay into a
fund certain fixed sums each month,
according to the amount of wages
regularly received. Benefits nre
paid in weekly indemnities in
cases of sickness and disablements and
a gross sum to the beneficiary when
death occurs. They vary according to
the amouni contributed. Free medical
and surgical attendance is given:
hospitals are established; physicians
are appointed at convenient places
along the line. The company has contributed $100,000, the interest of which
at six per cent, goes into the fund
yearly. Tt also puis $25,000 a year
into a superannuation fund. A building loan association bus also become
quite popular.
There are many other liberal features
of which limited space will not permit
an enumeration.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company
has also adopted a system of reliel
similar to thnt of the Baltimore at
Ohio, but not so extensive. It is entirely voluntary and numbers over
20,000. ll rapidly increases In popularity as its benefits become more appreciated.
In both companies the employes arc
rapidly leaving the local benevolent
associations: tbey Hnd they can insure
themselves with the aid of a solvent
and powerful company for much less
money than in the thousand and one
local lodges whose solvency depends
on the honesty of a secretary or a
treasurer.
Other systems of relief, bul to a
minor extent, have been adopted by
the railway companies—notably free
hospital service for the sick and disabled upon the Santa Ee and Missouri
Pacific, all of which materially lesseii!

subsequent I'ostly trials and judgments

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES.
There arc many well-meaning persons
who seem to be conscientiously opposed
to the clause in the penal law of Great
Britain and some of the American States,
that makes attempt at suicide u felony
punishable by imprisonment and fine.
If the law is properly enforced, tbe lr. S.
authorities should keep their eyes on individuals Hitch as the one who is reported
to be preparing for a trip over Niagara
Falls in a barrel.   If be does not escape

Strange legends bover over these
regions; the mountains were trolls
(giants), who at one time had been
courting, und who, when rejected oi
when driven to jealousy, pursued euch
other, rolled mighty rocks upon each
other, or hurled them in each other's
path, and ended by being cnehantod
into stones themselves by somo mightier trolls. These legends are immense,
as If they treated about folding the
City of New York together like a carpet, carrying it off across tho Atlantic
and unfolding it again upon the plains
of Normandy, without a house, a child
or a cup being broken on the way.
These regions had nt one time a poet,
Peter Dass (contracted from the
Scotch Dtindas), who died in 1708. He
described in original verses this pari
of Norway—Nordland-and the love
und the imagination of the people
have clung to him to such a degree
that now tbe worthy Nordland clergyman is to them as a giant of Solomon's
height in the tales of the East. He tied
down the devil as you would bind and
tame n dog. Satan was always at
his hajelc und call, and had to bring
him every thing he wished for and to
earry him wherever he wanted to go.
One Christmas Eve Peter Dass sailed
on a millstone down to the King ol
Denmark, where he was right royally
entertained, but next day he delivered
his Christmas sermon in his little
parish church in the north, hundreds
of miles away. In the same way that
they have endowed him, these people,
whose imagination has been reared by
tbe wild, weird nature around them
during several months of continuous
light, night and day, during an equally
long period of continuous darkness,
with the wild restless rays of the
aurora borealis across the canopy oi
the heavens, and in the fantastic life
ut sea, with the fish shoals under them
and millions of birds hovering above
them, they will probably in a century
or two similarly endow those who today have won their love or their
hatred.—Bjornstjerne Bjornson, In

Bow    tlio   Tallest    Artificial   Structure   ou
Iho Ilui-tl,  Looks.
Tho monstrous tower designed by Engineer Eiffel for tho Paris exposition has
threo atones or divisions. Tho first story
is sixty meters high (a meter is equal to
thirty-nine inches) and rests on the arches
which join tho four foundation columns
that carry upon them tho entire weight
of tho hugo tower.
The tower has four distinct sections.
Each wing is provided with a refreshment saloon that may bo reached by
means a,I winding staircases tinder the
foundation piers. Notwithstanding the
center of the upaco has been set apart for
the elevator, there still remain 4,200
square meters of Iloor room for the accommodation of visitors who may desire
to priiini-iiada' and enjoy a view of the
city from lhat height.
'I'll,- apartments ure very roomy, and
precautious have been taken to insure
the visitors agoinstall possibility of acci-
' dent
An iron railing, ubout four feet high,
with an arched roof to exclude tho intense rays of the sun, surrounds the extreme edge of tlio platform, us it may be
culled, whloh has been reserved us a
promenade for those who desire to walk
about. The requirements for the com*
■ fort of tho inner man, too, have nol
been forgotten. Kitchens, storerooms,
ico chests and tho liko havo been fitted up
ill tho most handy manner imaginable.
Each ono of tho four cufes is provided
| with a cellar capable of storing 200 tuns
of wine.
Everything about tho structure ia absolutely fireproof, for iron is Iho ouly
material that has been used in its construction. Two thousand parsons per
hour can ascend and descend tho staircases lending to the platform, nnd 4,000
can find scats to rest upon in the cafes
at ouo time.
Tho second story, which is sixty meters
abovo tho lirst one. is also reached by
four staircases built inside of tho supporting columns which mako a sharp
inward curve, leaving but 1.400 square
meters of surface for the platform and
promenade, Here, too, in the commodious and handsomely decorated cafe
tho thirsty and tired sightseer may find
something moro potent than Seine water
to recuperate his strength.
This story is uincty-ono meters above
tho tip of tho Notre Dame steeple, and
higher Hum the tower of tho palaco of
tlio Trocadcro, on the other sido of the
river, and, as may easily bo imagined,
tho view of tho surrounding country to
bo had from such an altitudo is almost
indescribable. From hero on tho columns of thu tower fall ill toward each
other until they ascend a distauco of 878
meters abovo tho ground, where the
third anal last story is situated.
Only ono staircase lcaids to tho thir.i
story, whloh ia for tho exclusivo use ail
tho persona employed ill the tower, am I
all visitors nro expected to uso tho el.-
valors,  two in number,  to roach  thu
point.   Tlio platform is eighteen metui
square, still largo enough to erect ther.
on a conifortnbly sized dwelling.   Tb
view hero is simply superb.    Tho sto,
is equipped witb reflecting mirrors tin
a largo supply of field glasses forth"
aa ho wish to uso them.    It has been obi
mutual thut tho ordinary oyo can disco1

The tower terminates in what is knoaa
as tho lantern, twenty-five meters ulm
tho third scctiou, but this placo has bei

A I,eider Tells How the 1'u.iue.B Is Afl'ei-toaf
liy Mon.or.olle..
Iii recounting tbe difficulties of th*
jewelry business a dealer said: "It
would seem that manufacturers were
bent upon minimizing the expenses
incident to the personal adornment of
the fair sex. If not this, they are
shrewd enough to tighten the coils of
monopolistic power chiefly about those
articles that are in demand for their
utility aa well aa for their beauty. At
any rate, tlu-re is no trust among the
manufacturers of jewelry proper, but
the makers of watches and silverware
practically seek to dictate the minutia
of our business in ao far us those
articles arc concerned. In such articles as rings, brooches, pins and trinkets there is a generous rivalry among
manufacturers, which has tended to
be beneficial both in enhancing quality
and In reducing cost. The man who
buys jewelry to-day of a dealer who
does not demand un exorbitant margin
of profit pays pretty nearly a normal
price for what he gets.
"With articles of utility, however,
the matter is different. For four years
the watch trust has been growing in
power, nnd most dealers, especially
the proprietors of small stores, have
been made to feel ita influence. Most
of us had our profits greatly reduced
and not a few have been run out of
the business. I wilt venture to say
that when the Merritt anti-trust bill
was introduced into the House there
were few jewelers in the State who
were not wishing it would pass, so us
to bring the needed relief. The American Watch Manufacturers' Association and the Jobbers' Association, by
a system of rules and u policy of suspensions and boycotting, have held an
iron hand over us to such an extent
that tho amount of our purchases, the
places at which we deal, the rates
at which we sell, the discount we allow and even the time we sell on are
dictated to us. Retail jewelers are
forced to buy of the jobbers unless
thoy can make a first purchase of
15,000 net and buy at least $20,000
worth of goods during the year. If
they can make such purchases they
are regarded as jobbers and can profit
by the manufacturers' prices, and job
bers are discountenanced and expelled
from the trust if they sell at a lower
rate of profit than 25 per cent. In
short, the whole purpose of the trust
is lo keep up prices and secure patron'
age to the members of the trust. In
doing this the smaller dealers are
frozen out remorselessly.
"In the matter of silverware, the
trust, I think, is uot so iniquitous.
There are few styles in the market,
however, which are not in some
way or otlier covered by monopolies. That is one of the great
reasons why novelties tn silver
come so high. It ls one of the
latest fads for young ladles to decorate
their dresses with all sorts of fancy
pieces, the styles of wh h are constantly changing and the prices ol
which ure consequently far beyond
tlio actual value of the goods. With
watches the oases und tbe movements
alike come under the power of the
trust, but with silverware it is only
the designs that the trust has contrcl
of. While I think that watches und
silverware are much lower than they
used to bo, I am certain that the iniii
imum price consistent with good
workmanship and quality is not yet
reached, und thut It would be vastly
for the benefit of the public, as also
for the dealers in jewelry, if some
scheme could be devised or law passed
by which competition could have Its
natural influence and we dealers be
freed from leading-strings."—Chicago

PUBLICATION    OF    LAWS.
How llleiuishes Aro Often l-'ugl-uftt-al L'poB
Our Statute-Books.
The laws are published in various
formB. They are first published separately in sheet form, as "slip laws,"
as soon as possible after being received
by the bureau and numbered iu the
order of their receipt. When so published the slip laws aro given to the
editor of the laws (a competent person elected from tho legal profession
by the Secretary of State and privately employed for that purpose), who
notes marginal references to previous
legislation, arranges the acts and resolutions by "chapters," nnd prepares a
suitable index: nnd under his editorial
care at the end of the session of ( (ingress, they appear again in pamphlet
form aa "session laws." Lastly, at the
close of a Congress, the laws of each
session are gathered by the editor into
a single, volume and bound as "Stat-
utea-ut-I.arge." The numerous readings given to the printed "proof." und
the careful comparison with the text
of the originals, effectually guard
against discrepancies. Thomannor in
which the department performs its
duty is thoroughly creditable; the
manner In which Congress dismisses
its own work is, iu many instances,
absolutely disgraceful. Some of the
rolls received ut tho department are
disfigured by erasures, interlineations
and blots, by errors iu orthography,
capitalization and punctuation, and by
hieroglyphic mangling that suggest
the "masterpieces" of school-boy
art. These and more serious imperfections, once placed upon tho parchment roll, are law. However glaring
the blunder, however mischievous the
distortion or omission, tho Slate !>.-
partment is powerless to add a connecting dot or stroke. Mistakes made
by Congressional enrolling clerks have
undone legislation accomplished by
Congress after hours of debute. An
item of half a million dollars for public purposes wus bodily left out in the
enrollment of a recent appropriation
act; and the substitution of a comma
for a hyphen in transcribing a tariff
measure some years ago caused a loss
to the Government of thousands of
dollars before the error was detected
and further loss arrested by the pus-
sage of another act. These are but
specimen cases, it is humiliating to
think that a sleepy or Incompetent
^elerk should be able to frustrate the
legislative will of a Nation, and startling to reflect on the opportunities for
fraud by deliberate tampering with the
public rolls. Blemishes enough are
engrafted upon our statute-books by
the legislators themselves, in the shape
of careless or unwiso enactments:
surely, if we cannot always have clear
statesmanship, we should have at least
clear penmanship In the parchment
record of our laws. The blame, like
the remedy, rests with Congress.—
Edmund Alton, in St. Nicholas.

THE   COMMON   HOUSE   FLY.
When nml  IH.aire It Bind, suid How It
Passes Ttiroufii th. Wlntstr.
The common house fly (Musca do-
! iitcitica) Is one of the most widely dis-
I tributed insects, and yet very little is
known of its life history.   Prof. Pack-
j ard, in his great work, "Guide to th*
! Study of Insects," says:   "No one haa
I traced the transformations of this fly in
j this country."   He then proceeds to
i copy a few lines from a European work
in regard to the form of the larva, but
j the information given in regard to its
' early   stages is meager aad unsatisfactory.   Figuier,  in his magnificent
i illustrated work, "Tbe Insect World,"
j after briefly describing the house fly
I says:   "Every one knows how annoy-
; Ing it is toward the end of summer,
and   especially   so   in   the   south   of
France during the hot season."   But
he gives no information in regard to
its habits, where it breeds or lives in
tlio larva or grub state.   We have also
consultod a number of entomological
works published in this country In re-
cont years   without discovering any
additional information lu regard to the
life history of the house fly.  It is supposed, however, that the females deposit iheir eggs in all kind of filth or
decaying vosjetttbles and animal substance,  where they  hatch, and  the
grubs feed until they are transformed
into reddish-brown pupae, from which
the perfect Hies issue during the warm
weather    in   summer   and   autumn.
Whether the  eggs  laid late in the
season pass the winter safely or after
becoming grubs remain half or wholly
dormant until spring  ls at  present
unknown.  But as house Hies are found
in their perfect state in houses and
other buildings during the winter, it
may be that tho entire summer broods
are the progeny of those few individuals carried over from one season to the
next.—N. Y. Sun.

Dr. Theodore B. Lyman. Kpisa-op'il
Bishop of North Carolina, has written
the following lot tor to the Saleigb
Daily News ami Courier:
"I think I havo niiulo a vory valuable discovery, nml I nni anxious that
others should also enjoy the benefit of
it. For nearly two years 1 have been
suffering greatly from sleeplessness at
night. 1 have tried a great number of
proposed remedies, some of whieh
have helped me a little, but not for
any length of time. A little more tlinn
a fortnight ago, while staying' at the
house of a friend in the country, my
good hostess brought into the parlor,
quite late in the evening, a bountiful
supply of peanuts. As 1 am very fond
of them, when they are not Ion much
cooked, I ate quite freely of Ihem, and
soon after retired lo bed, 1 found Ihe
next morning that I had enjoyed lhe
best sleep 1 had experienced for over a
month. I attributed this at once to
the peanuts, and determined to try
them again the following evening. I
did so, and also drank a glass of fresh,
sweet milk after'I had finished tho
peanuts. That night I slept si ill
better, aud now, for a fortnight, I
have partaken of the peanuts and milk
every night, and have not only slept
remarkably well, bnt havo also fully
recovered from a slight attack of indigestion whieh had troubled mo before. I now find lhat peanuts, carefully roasted and not overdone, so as
to be at all burnt, are sorely a remedy
for sleeplessness and also for that fo.'m
of indigestion whicli produoes sleeplessness.
"Thoro is a popular impression that
peanuts are indigestible, but 1 have
never found them so unless Ihey wero
too much roasted or had beon roasted
many days before. When too much
cooked or when stale they certainly
are Indigestible, bul when carefully
roasted and fresh tbey promote digestion. Thoy should be eaten shortly
before going to bed, nml not more than
a half pint should be taken. They
should be roasted before they nro
shelled, and shelled only as they are
eaten. A half pint of shelled nuts
would be too many. I commend this
remedy with groat confidence to those
who are afflicted with insomnia, particularly if Indigestion is in part the
cause of it. The peanut is a very valuable article of food when carefully
roasted and partaken of in moderation.
I hope none of my readers will imagine
that 1 have started a peanut farm, and
am wishing to create a boom in that
article, bul I shall be rejoiced if what
I have written should bo the means of
bestowing on any others tho great
benefit which I hnvo dorived from this
simple agency."

Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Deal
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 fur
itself, not only in Hindustan, but all over
the East. As a remedy nf general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported Into tha country, and we shall be
glad ti- hf.u of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home, The other brands, we
are happy In say. are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy iheir snj.irn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhoe,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps, '
Neuralgia, lhe Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have otenrred
unit., t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if!
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used ihy other form of this l
medicine than Collis I'-rowne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duly we owe to the pro]
fession and the public, as we nre ot?the
opinion tnat thc substitution of any other
than Collis Brpwne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THK PART,
