Great Railroad Systems.
Seeing as we do tlie many lines in
the country grouped inlo large systems whose ownership will no douht
remain stable iu years to come, permanence of employment and stability
of position is easy to be guaranteed
and the corporations can now better
secure their own rights and strengthen
themselves against the encroachments
of the public by drawing their employes more closely lo them, showing
that paternal caro and solicitude for
thoiu which tend to establish good
feeling and community of interest.
Relief associations under tho guidance of the companies will do this.
They ace flourishing ou the Baltimore
& Ohio and the Pennsylvania railroads.
Tho organization on those roads may
be taken as tho type of what othor
companies should do. On thc 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 thoso ovor forty-five years and
those, who could not pass a medical
examination were not allowed to join.
; All persons employed regularly by the
i company are required to pass a medical examination, must be under forty-
five years of age, and must join the
rolief association. Thus it will be
seen that nearly all thoiremployes aro
members. The compulsory feature
looks to an outsider like a hardship,
but tho 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 livo others who pay into a
fund certain fixed sums each month,
according to the amount of wages
regularly received. Benefits are
paid in woekly indemnities in
cases of sickness and disablements and
a gross sum to tho beneficiary when
death occurs. They vary according lo
the amount contributed. Free medical
and surgical attendance is given;
hospitals are established; physicians
are appointed at convenient places
along the Hue. Tho company has contributed $100,000, the interest of which
at six per cent, goes into the fund
yoarly. It also puts 1125,000 a year
into a superannuation fund. A building loan association has also become
quite popular.
There are many other liberal features
uf which limited space will not permit
an enumeration.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company
has also adoptod a system of reliel
similar to that of the Baltimore aS
Ohio, but not so extensive. It is entirely voluntary and numbers oVor
20,000. It rapidly increases in popularity as its benefits becomo moro appreciated.
In both companies the employes are
rapidly leaving the local bouevolunt
associations; they find they can insure
themselves with the aid of a solvent
and powerful company for much less
money than in lhc thousand and one
local lodges whoso solvency depends
on the honesty of a secretary or a
treasurer.
Other systems of relief, but to a
minor extent, have been adopted by
the railway companies—notably free
hospital service for the sick and disabled upon the Santa Fe und Missouri
Pacific, all of which materially lessens
the number of claims for damages uud
subsequent costly trials and judgments
in the courts.—L, O. Goddard, in
Century.

NORWEGIAN    LEGENDS.
Fmili.Mtii'   Tales   Originating-    Wltb    til.
Norsemen of Yore.
Strange legends hover over these
regions; tho mountains were trolls
(giants), who ut one time had been
courting, and who, when rejected or
when driven to jealousy, pursued each
other, rolled mighty rocks upon each
other, or hurled them in each other's
path, and ended by being enchanted
into stones tliotusolvos by some mightier trolls. Those legends aro immense,
as if they treated about folding tho
City ol New York together Uko a carpet, currying it olT across the Atlantic
and unfolding It again upon the plains
of Normandy, without a houso. a child
or a cup being broken on tho way.
Those regions had at ono time a pool,
Peter Uass (contracted from the
Scotch Dunlins), who died In 1708. He
described iu original verses this part
of Norway -Nordland -and tho love
and thc imagination of the people
have clung to him to such a degree
that now the worthy Nordland clergyman is to thorn as a giant of Solomon's
height in tho talos of the East. Ho tied
down tho devil as you would bind and
tamo a dog. Sutan was always at
his bock and call, and had to bring
him every thing he wished for and to
carry him wherever he wanted to go.
Ono Christmas Eve Peter Dass sailed
on a millstone down to tho King ol
Denmark, where he was right royally
entertained, bnt noxt day ho delivered
his Christmas sermon in his little
parish church in tho north, hundreds
of miles away. In the same way that
thoy have endowed him, theso peoplo,
whoso imagination has beon roared by
the wild, weird nature around thorn
during several months of continuous
light, night und day, during an equally
long period of continuous darkness,
with the wild restless rays of the
unrora boroalls across the canopy ol
the heavens, and In the fantastic life
at sea, with the lish shoals under thorn
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.— Bjornstjerno Bjornson, In

AITER  THK   llAILWAVB.
Chicago, Ang. 2.—Chairman Walker of
the Inter-Stnte Commerce Railway Association and an acknowledged authority
on railway law, to-day rendered a decision, declaring illegal the tarifl' of the
Alton Railroad in which it attempted to
quoto through rates on live stock from
points on the Rock Island line west of the
Missouri river, accepting for the haul
from Kansas Cily to Chicago, the difference between the Rock Island through
rate from Kansas points to Chicago and
at the local rate from the point ef origin
to the Missouri river. The greatest importance is attached to this decision, for
the reason that the articles ot agreement
of the Interstate Commerce Railway Association compel that organization to
prosecute any road charged with violating the law before the Interstate Commerce Association, and the penalty for
such violation is. under the amended Interstate Act,imprisonment oraheavy fine.

Albany, N. V., Aug. -.-The southbound Delaware at Hudson through train
ran through an open switch at Kenvood
junction, near here this afternoon, and
into the northbound West Shore train
due here at 4: '10. The drawing room car
"Argvla" and two passenger coaches of
the Delaware at Hudson train were
thrown from the Irti'-k. A passenger on
tho West Shore named Thos. Conitl', residing here, was killed and several others

A H1I.I.V OUSTOV.
New York, Aug 1.—Thos. Uobius,aged
12 years, was pushed off the pier at the
footof W. Twenty-Sixth street into North
River to-duy by i'ul rick Casey, aged 14,
and was drowned. Casey wus arrested.
Tne first Friday in August is known
among the boys that frequent the river
trout ns "Launching Day." For more
than a generation it has been the custom
of bovs on that day to euga.re in the
promiscuous ducking of one another at
the piers. While a parly of lads were
thus "launching" each" other to-day,
Casey approached Robins and asked him
if he could swim. Robins said he could
not, but Casev either misunderstood or
disregarded tlie answer, and began
wrestling with Robins, who wus finally
pushed into the river. II* sunk ut once
and was drowned before help could reach
him. This is the first fatality connected
with "Launching Day," as far back as
any of those h,miliar with the custom can
remember. It will probably cause lhe
police tu break up the practice.
I T.t.lZ;.N«   NIAGARA   FALLS.
Washington, Aug, 2.—An important
meeting of tlie al'rectorsand stockho'ders
of the Niagara Hydraulic Electric Company was he'd In-day at Ihe'r office iu
Alexandria, Virginia, for lhc  purpose of
I receiving reports and perfecting plans to
utilize the water power of Niagara Falls.
This Company have secured the grant
from the Ontario Government to use the
I water at Horseshoe  Falls on  the Canu-
] dinn   side.   The   Hamilton   patents for
i mechanics Improvement) whieh regulate
the flow of water and control   the  situation of the  [lower   are   owned   by this
company.
Eminent engineers have approved the
pians whicli prov'de lor tnnnellini!
through the rocks st a point several hundred feet above the falls under tho bed
of Niagara river, thereby seeming a
plentiful supply of water for the power
needed, nnd without dlfigurlng or interfering with the beauty of the scenerv at
ibe falls.
It is proposeal to construct a roailway
leading from the Old Maid of the Mist
landing to the mouth of (lie proposed
tunnel so that the massive machinery required can be put in plaie without occasioning any inconvenience to visiting
tourists or residents of the locality.
Witli the water power secured it is intended by means of electrical dynamos
capable of transmitting strong currents
of electricity long distinces, to furniBh
light, power and heat to various points
with a radius of forty miles. Electrical
railroads will be built to Buffalo, Lock-
port, Hatavia and intermediate
points and on the Canadian
side lo Clifton, Hamilton und other
p'aces. A syndicate of American and
Canadian capitalists have undertaken the
construction of tbe work. An adjourned
meeting of stockholders will be held at
the Hotel Bartholdi in New York on
Tuesday, Aug. 6th, to complete arrangements.

San Francisco, July 31.— The steamer
Dora arrived from Behring Sen last night
and brought the first detailed account nf
the capture of the British sealer Black
Diamond, hy the I'nited StateB
revenue cutter Richard Rush, July
11th. Tho Rush overtook the
Black Diamond and ordered her
to heave lo. Thu captain of the ltlnck
Diamond refused to do this. Thereupon
the captain of the Rush ordered the
lowering of the ports and running oul of
the guns, which caused the schooner to
heave to. Capl. Sheppard and Lieut.
Tuttlc boarded the Knirlish craft and
asked for her papers. The officers of Ihe
Black Diamond offered no armed resistance hut refused lo deliver the ship's
papers. Cupt. Sheppard al once broko
open lhe cabin unal forced the hinges oil'
the strong box anil tha' t-uptiun's chest,
thereby securing the papers which he
wanted. A search of the vessel discluseal
103 sealskins wbich bad beeu taken in
Behring Sea. Captain Sheppard placed
a non-commissioned officer from the
Rush in charge of the Black Diamond
and oralered the vessel taken to Sitka to
await further instructions. The captain
of the Black Diamond made a statement
that when in Victoria he was oralered to
pay no attention in caso he was overtaken by the RubIi and oralered to lay to.
He says" he would uot have surrendered
if the Rush had had an inferior force to
that of his own.
A passenger who arrived here on the
steamer Dora last night saial:
"On ouiywny down from St. Paul's
islnnd we saw six Sealers and the Rush
was closely in pursuit of them. We lefl
St. Paul's' island July 14, and on the
following day saw the Rush iu pursuit of
her prey. Undoubtedly by Hub time the
Hush has made additional captures."

KA18KP.   ANll   lll'KKN.
London, Aug. 2.—According to programme the Prince of Wales left Ports-
month Harbor in his yacht, the Osborne,
at 12:30 to-day and proceeded outside the
Solent to await the arrival of the Emperor of Germany on board the Imperial
yacht Hohenzollern. As the yacht
steaineal out of the harbor she was saluted
by the guns on shore and on board the
assembled war vessels. Shortly before
the departure of the royal yacht the
German squadron was sighted steaming
slowlv towards Portsmouth, and pilots
were immediately despatched to take
charge of their movements. The weather
at Portsmouth was superb, the bright
sunshine lining tempered by u cooling
breeze. Everything was in readiness
for the arrival of the German Emperor
and the crowds whicli came by every
available means far surpassed in numbers
that which marked anv previous Spithead nianeaeuvres. The enormous Government llotilla. and numerous private
crafts, as well as all available space
on shore, was packed with sight-seers.
As the yacht Osborne approached the
Hohenzollern, the Princo of Wales signalled his greetings to the Kaiser, to
which the latter responded. The Osborne then iicrotnpanied the Hohenzollern with her escort through
the lines of war vessels drawn
up in "parade" lo receive her.
Every vessel, both German and English, was in bolliilay attire, anil the spectacle as the German fleet steamed slowly
through the narrow aisle left between the
gaily decked war ships—the flower of the
British navy—was imposing in the extreme. As the imperial yacht passed
each ship sbe wus saluted by loud hurrahs from tars spread out upon tbe
yards or ranged upon the deck, followed
by the booming of the ships' guns, which
shot out their tongues of flame again and
again, until the Hohenzollern was hidden
by smoke. Then others took up the welcoming huzzahs and other cannons
Doomed forth thunderous greetings.
Through this gauntlet of fire and smoke
the Hohenzollern passed with '.he ironclads Deutchland, Kaiser, Preussen and
Frederick, with Der t Irosse and the frigate Zeiten in her wake. Ofl'Cowes Admiral Sir Edward Commell went on
board tho Hohenzollern, while Vice-Admiral Baird and other flag offia'ers, with
Geueral Sir L. Smith awaited the Kaiser's landing at Trinity pier. Ilis Majesty disembarked and proceeded to the
Osborne, where he was welcomed by his
grandmother, thc Queen. The Emperor
will dine with the Queen ut Osborne
this evening. The spectacle attracted to
the shoreof thc Solent hundreds of thousands of people, while the water was literally covered with every conceivable form
of craft bearing sightseers, most of which,
as did all of the war vessels and trans-
Atlantic liners set vingas excursion steamers displayed the German flag.
ill the conclusion of the naval displays
at Spithead, Emperor William will leave
for Aldersbot to witness the military
review, arriving there on Wednesday.
He will return to Osborne in lhe evening
to pay a farewell visit to the Queen, and
will rejoin his fleet on tho following day
for his homeward voyage,,
The Kiiiperiir's proposed visit to the
Sultan occasions considerable uneasiness
in St. Petersburg, where reports "I immense war preparations on the par! of
Turkey have already had the effect ol
quickening Russian senaibilltv. t'nless
sonic satisfactory explanation is given by
Turkey of her warlike attitude, it la extremely doubtful if Kinperor William wi'l
care to assume the risk of offending the
Czar bv visiting Constantinople at this
time.
Emperor William was to-day appointed
to au honorary admlrulship in the Hriiish
navy.

URS.   MAYBRICK I'ROBABI.Y ACQUITTED.
London, Aug. 2.—The interest in the
sensational Maybrick trial, now going oa
in Liverpool, grows daily and newspapers
here print many columns of evidence,
morning aud evening. When Mrs.
Maybrick was first arrested the damaging
disclosures made of her relations with
Alfred Brierley, set popular feeling
against ber and little douht was expressed
in ony quarter of her guilt and her ultimate conviction on the charge of poisoning her husband.
Sir Chas. Russell's admirable p-epara-
tion of her case has, however, completely
revolutionized public sentiment and if
his work produces upon the jury anything like an impression it has already
made on the public, conviction is out of
the question. It is generally believed
she will be acquitted or even at the worst
that the jury will fail to agree.
The medical testimony introduced by
the crown is very weak and is far from
supporting the theory of the prosecution.
Dr8. Humphreys and Carter, who attended deceased in his last illness and npon
whose testimony the prosecution relied
very largely, flatly contradicted one another on the stand on some very material
points, and upon their cross-examination
by Sir Chas. Russell both became confused.

The excursion to Vicioria to-day, under the auspices of Court Nanaimo For-
I esters' Home, No. ">S80, promises to be
un unqualified success as a number of
' people have intimated their intention of
availing themselves of the opportunity to
■ participate in the Foresters' revels.  Besides the regular train at nine o'clock
there will he also a special leaving Nan-
< aimo nt eight a. in. which is timed to ar-
'■ rive in Victoria at 12 noon.   A  very at-
I tractive programme has been arranged
lo entertain tlie visitors.    One of the
! principal features of the day will be the
I public marriage on  the (-rounds  which
! lias some very peculiar features attached
to it.     It seems   that   the bridegroom
of     to-day     advertised    for   a   wife
with success and she met him yesterday
at Vancouver and the happy pair arrived
iu Victoria thc same day to lie on hand
for the momentous occasion.
The Nanainio Junior Brass Band will
accompany the excursionists from this

MODERN   TU A VIA..
A wuNiiKHi'i i. change haa been created
in (he conditions surrounding travel,
even within tlie memory of those who
are still comparative]!- young. The
effects of the ultilizutiiiii of steam arete
be enjoyed by the luxurious coaches ol
our railroads or cabins of our steamships.
while the use of the telegraph an.', cable,
the telephone ami the Immensely Increased facilities for correspondence, combine
to render travel a pleasure in itself.where,
not so very long ago. il was ilisconil'i.rt
endured for the sake of whal might be
seen  and visited.
In the summer season the Canadian or
United States tourists   hnd  little more
difficulty in running over i" the United
Kingdom nr otlier parts af Europe than
the Englishman or Frenchman once experienced in crossing the channel, while
the Australian  colonist can  come Irom
the  antipodes   over   thirteen   thousand
miles     of       land       and       water       in
lets time than would have  been   necessary fifty years ago to cross the ocean
separating the American continent from
Europe.   Everything worth seeing can
now be enjoyed by thefortnnate traveller
who is blessed with a 'lue share  uf this
world's  goods, without having to endure
the constant delays, dangers and difficulties  of half a century since.    Luxurious
steamers will carry him  to  Europe,   lip
the   Mediterranean,    through   the   far-
famed straits of the Dardanelles, into the
Black sea, and land him on the coast  of
the  Russian Empire, or it wjll take him
past the shores of Ancient   Egypt,   or
through  the Suez a anal tc the shores nf
Hindustan, with  its myriad  population
and   wonderful   history,   or  to the new
world  of  Australia,  with   ils  modern
wealth and progress, or alown lhe shores
of Africa,  past the  many plaaes where'
British aud   European   civilisation  are.
trying to force their way to the mulli-j
tudes of the Dark Continent,   Comfortable   railway trains will convey him almost anywhere in the Old World,through
many parts of India and Asia, of Ans-
ralitt and of Africa, though a recent  des-
eription of the terminus of the   Delagoa
Bay railway in South Africa would give:
us an insight   into some  not  altogether
delightful  details aif African  travelling.!
Thc  traveller,   a   well-known    English
politician, is said to have taken a trip  as!
far as the terminus of this road at thei
Portuguese frontier, and ta have found
upou reaching his destination that it was
surrounded  by alligators, and that thei
station-master,    porter   and    telegraph
operator, were all upon the roof of the
station, not irom  fear of the alligators,!
who were always with tlieni. but in order I
to avoid the attentions of a  lion,   which!
had been pacing lhe platform duri.ig the
forenoon,
This incidant, however, must be some- i
what exceptional.    For the British tour- j
ist.  who  has seen  enough   of  the   Old i
World, and wishes new scenes and experiences, what can be more pleasant and
interesting than having recourse tn the
hew great route for the world's travel,
a trip across the Dominion, over its many
phases of natural grandeur, through lake j
and river and mountain till he comes to
the Pacific coast,   where be encounters I
the boundless ocean, whicli he can cross!
in comfort to the  new  Australia or  the
ancient East?
A.-.MMAV1   Ski 'SKTARY   lilli'HKI.I.KK.   of
the United States Treasury Department,
is credited wilh this unique assertion:—
"At certain times «f the year they [the
seals]disappear. No one kuovis where
they ao. perhaps out in deep water
again. They are seen in ihe sea far from
shore. That is where they are killed by
these poachers."' We would offer the
suggestion that, te somewhat avoid future
trouble, the United states Government
catch and brand the Behring Sea .pais
with a hie* "U. S.i" sn that il" they are encountered nil' the coast of China, 01 the
Sandwich Islands, or in mid-ocean, seal-
hunters will know that they are the
private property of Brother Jonathan
and govern themselves accordingly.
This aisertion, however, is valuable as

A Water Color Bed Quilt.
Several Lyme (Conn.) ladies and their
friends have made for a church fair in Florida
a block designed for a bed quilt, representing
the state of Connecticut by counties, each
county having some reminiscence elaborately
executed in water colors on silk. Litchfield
county shows a largo clock in one corner and
u clookmaker with his kitof tools, suggestive
of Connecticut's first clock, which was made
in that county Hartford county has the coat

Bomely painted, and the thirteen stars show
iug Connecticut one of the thirteen original
-taicx Tolland county bas the birthplace of
N*iUi-tii Halo. Windham county represents
tbe "battle of the frogs." Middlesex county
has a view of Long island sound and the
1,-ndy Fen wick tomb. New Haven county is
a humorous representation of tbe old blue
laws and a view of the steeples on tho groeu
at New Hareu. Fairfield county represents
Putnam's ride, and New London county
shows Groton monument and Fort Griswold.

Telegraphing Cheaper Than Writing.
Thoro has lately been invented a new system of synchronism which, it is claimed, will
make it cheaper to telegraph massages than
to mail them. Dr. J. Harris Rogers, of
Washington, D. C, is the inventor, and he
claims that the world will be almost revotu
tionized by his discovery. The new system,
Mr. Rogers says, reduces the English alphabet
to ten elementary characters. The message,
aro prepared by means of n machine resem
bling a typewriter anil manipulated in the
same manner. With the use of ten keys, one
for each character, any desirable message can
be written. A test of the new apparatus was
held in New York, aud a message of seventy-
six words sent orer in twenty-five seconds
and printed upon a tape in plain Roman characters. The inventor says that he can by this
system make one wire do the work that ten
alo now by the system in vogue.—Frank L«s

Tors for Great Britain.
Great Britain gets about £600,000 worth of
foreign toys every year. Now, as lt is reck
oned that there are rather moro than 15,000,
000 of children in tho United Kingdom
15 years old and under, it follows that ths
outlay for foreign toys is not much more
than 9 pence per child. Most of these articles
come from Germany, which sends to British
dealers toys of the value of £31*0,000 a year.
Holland is second, with £125,000 worth.
France follows with £00,000 worth, while
Belgium is a fairly gawd fourth witb £70,000
worth. Considering how clever the Amen
cans are, it is singular that tho United Btates
supply only £8,0M worth of these joys of the
chlldreu's heart Ynnkee inventors do not
caro to waste their smartness on the trivial
toy.—New York Telegram.

Tiia consumption of claret in Edinburgh was so enormous » hundred years
ago that during the French Revolution
tlie Town Council, in passing a resolution
that "the Bordeaux wine" should no:
longer be drunk, either at their banquets
or at private entertainments, regarded
the measure as lieing likely to prove the
rain ef the French traale.

another day his Majesty is to dine with

Oca despatches ihis morning from

British legation at that place will lay ths
matter of the recent seizure of British
sealers in Behring Sea before Ih* Slate
department in about a month or so. This
will indeed be rapial work. But in the
meantime what is going to b* done to
prevent lhe remaining twenty odd British sealers from being seized and confiscated and their crew* imprisoned?
Would it not be a good bleu for British or

American, anil Mouoy.
The American is constantly accused by
Europeans of worshiping tbe "almighty dollar," and great was my curiosity to judge for
myself of tbe Justice of this charge. After
calm observation of tbe ways of men lu i
America, I came to the conclusion that the
alollar was certainly not only the unit of the
monetary system, but that It was also the
unit of the metrical system. However, 1
soon saw that, if the dollar was coveted and
beld in great respect, it was not so much for
itself as for the luxury it wss the key to; in !
other words, that avarice was a vice almost
uiikiioavii in tbe land. There is a lavishue*.

Tlio Secretary I.Inl.
The secretary bird of South Africa feeds
upon rats, mice, lizards and oven insects, but
it is especially fond of snakes. So valuable
uro its services that tho white settlers levy a
heavy fino on any one who kills ono of these
birds. Its name, secretary, was suggested
by tho fact that tho large feathers projecting
from the apex of its head suggests a clerk,
or secretary, with several quill pens stuck
behind his ears.
It is about four fee* tu height, uud its
hawk liko bill is a formidable weapon, capable of splitting tho head of a large snake
at a single blow. As snakes do not willingly submit to the operation long and exciting lights often take placo beforo tho bird
cleaves its opponent's head. Parker Gilmore
saw ouo of these contests, and doscribes It in
his "Hunter's Arcadia."
Whilo stalking springbok ho discovered a
secretary bird fighting with a snake seven or
eight feet long, called by tho Boors "ring-
kual," from the whito ring or stripe around
its neck. It is an active serpent, endowed
with tho power of spitting Its venom six feet
or more.
For several minutes tho activity of tho
belligerents displayed itself in feints and
blows. Tho bird then withdrew and uttered
a prolonged harsh noto. In a minuto it was
joined by ant .uer secretary bird. Both birds
then attacked tho suako, which, being unablo to faco both ways at tho samo time, ro-
ceived frequent blows from its assailants1
strong wings.
Ono blowstupeiled the snake, Instontlyone
bird seized tho serpent near the neck and tho
othor further back, and bore it, wriggling,
struggling, aloft a hundred yards and then
dropped it. With closed wings, the birds descended so rapidly ns to reach the ground as
soon as tho snake. Quick as thought a bird
struck tho serpent u blow upon tho head
which killed it.
As is generally tho case, tho allies, having
conquered, began disputing as to tho booty.
Tho dispute led to a fight, during which tho
hunter, who wanted tho snoko as a specimen,
slipped in and took the booty. He convoyed
tho ringkual to his wagon, where it continued
to distill clear poison for an hour.-—Philadelphia Times.
To ft nro In Bokhara.
Tho report that tho ameer of Bokhara has
ordered tho abolition of torture in his kingdom, in honor of tho czar's escapo from death
In a railway accident, will suggest painful
memories to Englishmen. The commonest
form of torture in Bokhara is confinement in
tho "black well," whero the luckless victim
is devoured by vermin. This was the fate of
Stoddnrt, who was afterward put to death
along with Couolly by tho present ameer'a
grandfather. Other cruelties, too, wero practiced by "Tho Butcher," as ho was fitly
called. Men wero thrown down from high
walls or towers, wero flayed olive, or roasted
In ovens.
Mr. George Curzon, at the meeting of thc
Royal Geographical society, showed a photograph of tho tower from which criminals are
still flung, and ho expressed a hopo that this
barbarous punishment would before long be
abolished. Torture i*-" by no means uucomiion
in tho Indian nativo stat-pa; indeed, Si: Lepel
Griffln describes it as a recognized form of
judicial procedure. He mentions tho cose
of a ruling chief who was openly accused of
having tho acrid juico of chillies squeezed
into the eyes of reluctant witnessea "He
was an old gentleman," Sir Lepol says, "of
tho most soft and courteous manners, and
tho idea that chillies could bo objected to as
a means of judicial investigation did not
Beetn to have occurred to him,"—St. James
Gazette.
A Retired Supreme Justice.
William Strong Is often referred to as the
most sensible man in Washington. Ho served
ten yours on the supremo bench, and then
proved wiso enough to take advantage of the
law that allows him to retire on full pay. Ho
was born on tho 0th of May, 1808, in Somers,
Conn. After graduating from Yale he taught
for u timo and studied law. He was admitted
to the bar in Pennsylvania in 1883. He served
In congress during soveral terms, running tu
overy olectiou on tho Democratic ticket. In
1857 he was appointed justice on tho supremo
bench of Pennsylvania, and in 1870 ho received his commission as a member of lhe
United States supremo court. In 1880 ho resigned and has since lived quietly iu Washington, lecturing occasionally, and performing faithfully tho ono duty that tho law requires of him. Whenever tho supremo court
is required to tako part in auy public ceremonies Judge Strong put* on his robo and
walks with them In tho procession. In consideration of this aud his past services he receives $10,000 annually from Undo Sam's
treasury.—Louisville Courier-Journal.

Advice :o invalids—If you vAtsh to uuaain
quiet refreshing sleep, free from headache,
relief from pain and anguish, lo calm and
assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate the circulating systems ofthe body,
you will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by Dr. J. Collis
Browne (late Army Medical Staff), to which
he gave the name of CHLORODYNE, and
which is admitted by the profession to be lhe
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE is the hest remedy
known for Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhcea, and is lhe only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.
CHLORODYNE is the only palliative in
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Cancer,
Toothache, Meningitis, &-., 4c.
I'rom Symes A Co., Pharmaceutical

1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. ].
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned foi
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is im-
porteal inlo the country, and wc 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, nnd judging from their salel
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrha*,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, lhe Vomiting of Pregnancy, anal
as. general Sedative, thai have occurred
und..' our personal observation aluring many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have wilnessed ils controlling power. Wc
have never used '.ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj
fession and the public, as we ire ofthe
ovsinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERA-TE
BREACH OE KAIT1I ON THE PART
OK THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of

Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.

In tho case of the young men charged

Later in the day they were brought

not pushed against them, gave them a

This may have the effect of putting a

"Well, sir, the natives went wild over it.
Nickels, dimes and quarters showered down
tho hungry mouths ot the little Jugs and remained there, for thoy could not have been
taken out if the collectors had so desired
without breaking tho receptacle in which
Ihey were put. At a certain date the members all collected at tho church. Thero were
exercises of various kinds, concluding with
the breaking of tho jugs. It wns then found
that nearly $300 had been collected by the

a few moments, lest tho cow go into fits.
Sho will cry, moan and take on liko tt human
being if it is out of her sight for a moment.
Sho is evidently uuder thu delusion that It is

a stone round tho dog's head and threav him
into the water. The animal sauk at once, but
during his struggles the ropo slipped the
stone, and he again rose to the surfnee and
tried to get back intai tho boat. His 'master,
however, continued to push him back, but as
the dog perasvered he lost his patience, and,
striking at him with his oar, lost his footing
and fell iuto the water himself. He was unable to swim, but tho dog, seizing him by the
coat, succeeded In bringing him to the land,
after having been washed away by the current The dog's life was spared, we uro
happy to say.—Hall's Journal of Health.
