A HORRIBLE   OUTRAGE.
St. Louis, March 20.—Parly yesterday
morning masked  men entered the house
of  Mr.   and Mrs. John   Putnam,   near
Trenton, Mo., on the Ohio & Mississippi
Railway.    Being  dissatisfied   with   Hie I
amount of money secured, the robbers
maltreated the couple in a horrible man-1
ner.   Two servant girls who came to tin '•
rescue   were   similarly    treated,   being
marched about the bouse in their nighl
clothes, the  robbers  bul,ling cocked revolvers al their heals.   When  they bo
came satisfied Putnam had no money In
the house the  rullians   look the giri I  to
Iheir rooms and outraged them, then
bound and gagged tbe occupants and set
lire to the house and rode away. Luckily
tho nre died and ibe lives nf the unfortunates were saved.
Uott.ttt blurted to argue with th" man,
'.nit v.ns stopped with the information
that it was uscleis, an I he had but two
minutes in which to till out the check he-
fore him for $21,000 if he desired In live.
•Ir. Moffatt seeing no alternative tided om
the check, and was then ordered lotakj
It to the paving teller and get il cashed.
Mr. Moffatt left his office, "and thc man
followed b hind him with the revolver
nail iy cock, d under his overcoat and the
muz/.ie against M.,Halt's back, when the
president went behind thecounter and up
to the paying teller Keeley, with the re-
picst that the check be immediately
■nshed. They then reniaruhed into Mof-
I'utis office without attracting the attention
of tbe 15 or 20 clerks, who were busy at
".ork within two feet of where they pmsed,
\fter they nnd remained in the private
office three or four minutes, the robber
Informed Mr. Moffatt that they were wasting time and ho had better step to tho
door and motion the telierloeoms to him,
A-hich ho did. Moffatt ordered him to
bring the money into Ida office, and as
the latter turned to go away, the robber
told him he wane I 20 ffl.000 bills nnd
11,603 In gold. Tl e money was brought
in and handed to Ihe robber, w ho hacked
out ofthe front door raising bis hat a« he
repelled, the curbstone. He thai walked
tround the corner and disappeared. Tne

rlnd any trace of him. Moffatt is pi-js-
truted with the shock.
COLLIERIES SUIT DOWN,
Shamokin, Pa., March 20.—To-morrow
morning tho Nelson shaft will shut down
for a period of nearly six weeks, tin-owing
nearly 700 men idle. Half a dozen other
collieries owned by the Rending Company
and individual operators ore working
quarter time. Tho Henry Clay, operated
bv the Reading Company, employing
1600 banns, will be shut down in the near
future, if the coal trade remains in its
present inactive state. Hard times in
the cn.tl regions have set in and workmen
in   Schuylkill and   Reading are  flooding
1 Is district in quest of work, and miners
of this region invade western couuties
looking for work. Thousands of workmen
throng the streets daily, hoping for tho
.est. Large bodies of Hungarians and
Italians are leaving Ihe coul fields daily.
Storekeepers complain bitterly of hard
times

" To everything there is a season and :.
time for every purpose under Heaven.''
fSo said tlio "wise iiion." and the experience of some thousands of years bus nit
lioeii such as to invalidate the truth of
this statement. Hut tbe great fault with
a majority ot the people is tbnt tbev will
not seize the opportunity when it presents j
itself, and tbev take no thought nf time.
How many neglected opportunities have
we all had, and have taken no advantage
of them? How many times have we neglected to do that which wo were persuaded would be for our own and other's
good. And we let the time and season
Blip by, and eventually we found to our
B0WOW that a grievous mistake had been
made, nnd wo, with the greatest alacrity,
sprinkled ashes on our bends and put or
Back cloth, and moaned and lamented for
tho irrevocable, the " might have been."
And when we allowed another polder
opportunity to Blip by, we lei It Blip and
ngnin returned in the bitterness of om
hearts In our sack cloth nnd ashes. Well,
it is human nature so to do. We suppose,
and thus it probably will lie until the mil-
Ionium bus overtaken ns. and we shall
have attained that perfection of which we
rend but unfortunately seldom see.
It might seem superfluous to sav that
there is no time like the present to effcel
reforms or to inaugurate improvements.
■whether ns applied lo men or things. We
liavo tried to the host oi our ability to do
this city good and not barm by our discussion oiany subject that appertained to
Knnaimo's welfare. \Vo believe In the
future of the Pacific Province, and wc believe in the future of its cities.
Tt has been  tlio experience of men of
practical views, men  ot  hard common
sense, men who wore alive to the best interests oi their individual towns or cities,
flint one of the first considerations (or the
growth and success of anv town wns the
faith in the future, as shown hy the willingness of ils citizens to invest their enp-
Ital and in other ways to endeavor to
promote  the welfare   of   their abiding
places.   There are, alas! newspapers who,
in   their  ignorance,   self-conceit, shortsightedness and utter forgelfulness, lose
Right of everything but their own little,
narrow, selfish ends, and which endeavor
to retard the growth of a town and to keep
it on a par with their own growth(?) and
expansion.    Put  events move faster in I
those days than over before, ami though ;
people  slid   cling   to the   conservatism ,
of    tlie    past      they     must     awaken
to   tho   changed   condition   of   filings
'There is no doubt  that   the moans of
obtaining    a  livelihood   become  more
cramped and narrowed as each generation
goes by, but for all that, it  should be no
argument which men could  seize  as an
excuse for their apparent increased selfishness.   If it is true that each generation
grows wiser; if the thoughts of nun arc
widened with  the process of the suns.
surely we can hope (or something on n
broader and more elevating  scale,  than
characterized tho    actions,    aims   and
thoughts of our progenitors. Bocouse our
ancestors wore rude nnd   uncultivated,
know nothing of tho finer Influences oi

A corrkspondknt of the Newcastle,
(Eng ) Daily Chronicle of tlie 23rd January hnsa long letter in thai journal concerning flic eoal mines and the coal mining industry of Vancouver Island.
While a considerable amount of the information furnished l.y this correspondent to the readers of Ihe Chronicle is cor-
iv.-t in Ihe io,tin. there is much more
which is entirely misleading; and tt savors
of the writing of one who has been
"stuffed," the parlies doing tlio "stuffing" no doubt having nn object in view.
One of the statements made is that the
•oal mining operations of this Island are
likely to yield work to a groat many fresh
hand;! during the present year, besides
stimulating the enterprise of the capitalists in making further use of the vast
mineral resources of this province. Wo
sincerely trust that this is true, but in
view of the present situation Is it wise to
induce an influx of people who gi uorally
arriving with little or no means, must,
unless they procure employment, become
public charges. We do not helievo in tho
principle, while welcoming all who might
coino, did certain means of sustenance bo
assured them. Of course there Is n large
iunntily of fine agricultural lands inn
virgin slalc yet on this island, nnd to
those who have pome means, comfortable
homes could soon be theirs. But to artisans nnd "laborers" the situation Is different, and we do not believe it right, hut
i-atber a gross nnd wicked wrong to induce
people In emigrate this way. There are
other grave inaccuracies from Ihe pen of
this correspondent, bill they are so apparent ns not to need contradiction. Correspondents of foreign newspapers are loo
often reckless in their statements, but
they should not. nt nil events, bo too inaccurate and misleading.

TIIE BOOK AGENT.
Next to the long-suffering mother-
in-law, the book agent probably Is
made a target for more cheap wit, of
the average newspaper variety, than
nny other modern mortal, lie may
'deserve some of the opprobrium that
is cast upon him, for bin persistence in
the sale of his wares is not always of
the gentle and winning variety, but
after all we all inclined to consider
him one of the benefactors of humanity. Subscription books, even if
their contents are made to order, and
thi-ir bindings are bhiefly cheap and
glittering shoddy, arc better than no
books at all. and many a house in
America would lie as destitute of
books ns a Zulu's kraal were it nol * ,r
the insinuating blandishments of the
peripatetic booksell, r, At any r, I ,
we arc cbnvinc d that he id ■ ■
of much better than he usually rec< i -
from the public. Suppose I,.- does
ring your door-bell, goo ' hoitsewil .
when your hands are i:i the dough a:.?!
your cakes are frying, he is at 1 ., il
worthy of a | elite refusal, if you CO
not wish his wares, rather than I n
phorical slap in the face and an a- tual
slam of the door.
, A poor fellow who war, engaged in
this business said to us the otn :.l day,
"I can stand it no longer. I have
been so often abused and ill-treated
' and snubbed and all but kicked down
the steps that it has actually made me
sick. I am afraid to ring the door-bells
any longer, my feelings have been so
often hurt. I know of no other way
to earn an honest living, but I cannot
keep ou at this business.    If I wasn't
'a grown man, with a little of a man's
pride left in me,  I  should  go off and
' lie down and cry, as I sometimes did
when a little boy." Very likely this
was an extreme case of sensitiveness,
• but we are convinced that more than
one,  if equally frank,  would confess
'to the same experience.    Wc'well re-
' member a wealthy and distinguished
physician, whom we once observed as
,11c  was approached by a book agent,
.with the usual well committed tale
concerning his books, "J thank yon,"
replied the gentlt man (for be  was a
.thorough gentleman.) "I thank yotl
for giving me this opportunity to buy
your book, but I really am so busy today that I have not time to examine
its merits. Vou must excuse ms today." The book agent was so paralyzed
by this unaccustomed treatment that
he went away without another word. I
Similar treatment on  the  part of our
readers may produce cipi.iHv happy
effects,
AT A TAILOR'S.

"A perfect fit."
Ah, weally so it—bah Jove, if thfire

"Oh, no;  that's just a little natural
Eullness.   It doesn't show when vou

"NflW ?    Mighty glad.    I   couldn't

"Not the sixteenth of ar. inch."
"Nab?   Hah Jove, but I'm glad of

"Oh, yes; of course, of course."

"You're   mistaken.     They're   the

"You're sure of it, eh?   At least two

'Oh, the sleeves are all right,  Mr,
Jissybud."
'Gad, but I'm glad to hcah yotl say

'"'Oh, no; not all. They're a full
