A   DANGEROUS   EXPERIMENT.
Don't, Says   Uuidette,  Try   to   Stop   Yonr
Husband from Smoking;.
A woman, whom she once met oa tho train,
told Lydia Jackson Lamphere bow sho kept
her husband from smoking. "On our wedding day," sho said, "I made what I called
a declaration of principles to my husband.
I said to him that it was my purpose to make
his conduct my guide in all respects; that in
our family thero would bo no separate standards and whatever ho would think right for
himself should be right for mo.'' You seo
what was coming. "Oneevening supper was
over, the shades drawn and the lamp lighted,
and wo were seated for an evening of reading
or sewing, when my husband took up his
pipo for an evening smoke. Seeing this, I
calmly drew from my pocket a pipe, which 1
began to All with tobacco exactly as ho was
doing. As he proceeded, so did I. I coolly
scratched a match, lighted tho pipe and took
a whiff."
Well, bj the woman told Lydia tho story—
the husband of course gave up. Good story,
as far as it goes, but I can't help thinking
what, oh, suffering sisturs, what would have
happened if that kind hearted husband had
not relented, but had kept on smoking, and
permitted—invited—nay, urged his wife to
Join him? What kind of an evening would
they—that is, what kind of an evening would
she havo enjoyed? Oh, sisters, never, no
matter what Lydia Lamphero's friend teUs
you, nover try that cure on your husbands—
your respective husbands, that is. Ii wou't
work, with all men. It would cure ono of
you of smoking; that I am sure of, but it
wouldn't bo him. You may safely try it, if
you are fond of excitement of a rather limp
and stringy kind; it won't kill you, even if
you do take your first smoke with a brier
pipe and nigger head tobacco. But you can
produce the same effect upon yourself with a
milder drug.
I tremble—especially about the shoulders—
when I think what awful scenes may be precipitated in happy homes by the fallacious
theories taught in this story. Why, sister, I
have seen a boy, a great, strong, rough boy,
14 years old, so wrought upon by a mild five
cent cigar, not more thtuVhalf smoked, that
he has stretched himself supinely upon the
cold bosom of the inhospitable earth and
waited, with an unconcern that would chill
your blood for death, his father or the doctor
to como along, and he didn't care a cent
which got the lirst whack at him. And when
you think of a grown up woman, a married
woman, mother of children, may be, starting
In on a pipo—well, I don't want to think of
it, that's all. I've got to go to bed some time
to-night, and I can rest just as well without
the nightmare as I can with it and not "holler," till I wake up the whole house. But I
cannot close without a parting word of warning. Don't you listen to Lydia Lamphere on
this question, for she's your friend, and I
don't want you to turn against her.
You take the advice of a man who knows
more about pipes than you do about
husbands, and don't gou go to smoking in order to break him off it.
JSven if you don't die, you might learn
to like it as he does, and then where would
you be, if he should want to quit i Don't you
smoke pipes; you chew gum, if you must do
something wicked. You can worry the immortal life out of him with that if you'll only
keep at lt, and talk and chew a great deal at
tbe same time. That's v.-rv effect* *•<-■ Vou
keep uie quia and your jaws going • and he'll
give up drinking, chewing, smoking, betting,
awe—no, he'll grow worse about tbat, but
he'll give up everything else. Unless, in a
furious spasm of insanity, he breaks your
laws with a cricket bat and jumps off the
bridge at the end of tho third week.—Ilobert

A TERRIBLE FLOOD,
New Florence, Pa., June 1.—John McCartney, who lives in Johnstown, reached here this morning. He left Johnstown
yesterday at 4:30 and says the scene was
indescribable. The people had been warned early in the morning to move to high
lands, but did not heed the warning,
although it was repeated a number of
times up to 1 o'clock, when the water
poured into the streets several feet deep.
Then the houses began rocking to and
fro, finally the force of the current carried buildings across the streets into
vacant lots und dashed them against each
other breaking them into fragments.
Those buildings were freighted with poor
wretched people, who, shortly before,
laughed at the cry of danger. McCartney
says in some cases he counted fifteen
persons clinging to buildings. It was impossible to get to Johnstown proper today in any manner except hy a row bout,
and the hope is to get within two miles
of Johnstown by special train or by hand
car. The banks on both sides of the
river are crowded with anxious watchers,
and with horrifying frequency their vigils
are rewarded by the discovery of a dead
body.
Johnstown, Juno 1.—It is impossible
to describe briefly the suddenness with
whicli the disaster came. A warning
sound was heard at Coremaugh's a few
minutes before the rush of waters came,
but it was attributed to some meteorological disturbance, As tbe low rumbling
noise increased in volume, however, nnd
came nearer, the suspicion of danger began to force itself, even upon the bravest,
whicli was increased to certainty a few
minutes later, when with a rush, the
mighty stream spread out in width, and
then there was no time to do anything
to save themselves. Many of the unfortunates were whirled into the midst of
the stream before tbey could turn around.
At Johnstown a similar scene was enacted only on a larger scale. Thc population was greater and the sweeping
Whirlpool rushed into n denser muss of
humanity. The imagination of the reader can  better depict the spectacle than
n-i"~; >'*"•(• it.   .Itwasfthen liaUt,
and the gathering shinies oi e.c.iug
dosed in on a panorama of horrors that
lias few parallels in the history of disutilities.
At II :30 this morning, the Coroner of
Westmoreland county sent a message
saying thnt 100 bodies were recovered at
Nineveh. Sober minded people do not
hesitate to say that 1200 is a moderate
estimate of those drowned.
FUfiTlIEH PARTICULARS.
Pittsburg, June 1.—Dead bodies from
the scene of the disaster bave begun to
arrive here. The body of an old woman
was taken from the river near this city
this morning. Four other bodies were
seen, but owing to the mass of wreckage
coming down the river tbey could not be
recovered and were allowed to paBS down
the Ohio River. A citizen's meeting lias
been called to discuss the r. cans tn aid
the sufferers.
DENIAL  OF   FRENCH   CNDFRSTANDINO   WITH

Washington, June 1.—Admiral Gerhard*., of the South Atlantic Squadron,
who has just returned from Hayti on the

Speaking of the situation there, the Admiral said be did not think there was
any truth in the rumor of a treaty lw-
tween France oud General Legitime, but
he thought, it probable that the hitter's
representatives in Paris hud made some
such proposition to tlie French Government. The Admiral thought that General
Hippolite would triumph in the contest
and overthrow General Legitime und his
followers. The Admiral believed it to be
good policy to keep one or two vessels nn
hand there, but he docs not look for
French interference.

endorsed it as lieing the original Book of
the Law, but prophesied falsely in reference to the death of King Josiah. The
lecturer then asked, "If oneof the prophesies were false why not tlie other?"
One hundred and fifty years later Kzra
informs us that thc law'waa burned, and
he, commissioned by God, with the aid
of five scribes wrote it over again. To
this we are indebted for our Bible and on
these grounds the speaker repudiated the
whole thing, and challenged anyone who
dared risk their reputation sas scholars to
deny it.

that he would give one test which wae to

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.     ■
Editor Courier:—I should like to
know what waB the matter with the
lamps on Franklyn street at 11 o'clock
on Saturday niglit. There was no lamp
lit on that street, and I believe that the
city is paying for these lamps, so whv do
the Lighting Committee allow this kind
of way to continue? I was glad to see
that our City Fathers ure trying to abate
the Chinese nuisance, but they should
clcsn out tbe ditch now that they have
stopped the offensive matter from being
run into it. By bo doing they will gain
good   wishes   of   the citizens, and

acting is. Would it not be possible to
induce Modjeska and ber "supports" to
pav Nanaimo a visit'.' It seems u'most
too good a thing to "come off." but, such
a chance of seeing so superb an actress
as Modjeska may not occur again for
years. If sonic enterprising local entrepreneur would take up the matter, he
would find there would be money in it.
Why nol make the lowest charge if!, with
say a few scats ut a still higher llgure?
Tlie Institute would be crammed for at
least three nights if thc affair was duly
advertised and the people of Nanaimo

splendid chance that was presented to
Ihem ol at lust seeing an actress and ucl-
ors of world-wide fame.

Unnrlus oi. the Green ivverj Alternate Salnrday Nisrbt.
The enterprising young men mentioned last week in the Coirier, who have
taken in hand tlie Bubject of having a
dance on tbe Green on every alternate
Saturday night, have at lust succeeded in
bringing their scheme to a head.
Mr. Robins, Superintendent of the
Vancouver Coal Co., has kindly given
them permission to use the Green with
the express stipulation that no spiritusus
liquors are to be sold there during the
evening.
The services of the Nanaimo Junior
.Band have been secured, and the members have agreed to accept whatever ie
over after expenses have been paid, as
their reward.
Mr. Robins hns taken a considerable
interest in tbe matter, and says he is
always willing to help thc youth of this
town lo secure any harmless amusement.
It was thought that it wonld be necessary
to obtain tbe consent of the City Council
to use the platform, hut subsequent inquiry discovered that the platform was
built by public subscription, und so now
having the consent of Mr. Robins there
is nothing to binder them Irom going
a head with their plans at once.
The lirst dunce is advertized for Saturday, June loth. Gentlemen will lie
charged 50 cents for the use of the flsor
during the whole evening from 8 to 12
p. in.; ladies will be admitted free.
The names of the orginators of the
scheme arc as follows:—T. Wallace, H,
Johnson, I), McKenale, W. Cook, .1.

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
EdwardCummings,a 'coming"American novelist, in a recent description of the
inland rivers of Georgia gives an interesting sketch of the history of the fresh water
pearl. He says: People who have dealings with country storekeepers may have
noticed a statement on their letter heads,
to the effect that thoy buy and sell fresh
water pearls. The river fishermen are
the men that collect this new article of
commerce. In Borne counties in the
"back country" statistics show that the
pearling industry haa clone more to enrich certain counties than any other
commerce.
The fishermen choose a mussel bed of
the desired quality and then begins the
work of opening mussels. The most
favorable localities are generally in the
neighborhood of fine sand and shallow
water. The pearl is formed, according
to the discovery of the river naturalists,
by fine sand, working in between the
glands of the mussel's biceps which produces a secretion that ultimately results
in a pearl. A perfect pearl is smooth,
opaque and hard. Their value depends
upon their clearness and "grain."
The fisherman himself, however, is
more worthy our attention. His optimism is ever topmost; his good nature and
jollity are characteristic. Times may be
hard with the bricklayer, the carpenter,
and the farmer, but the marketB are always open for fish, nnd when an unseasonable time comes, he knows of its
coming, andean, if he wish, prepare for it.
To have the use of a telephone is not
an altogether unmixed good. There are
times when from some inexplicable
cause we cannot make ourself understood
Bhout as we may, and there are others
when the telephone rings us up, but has
nothing to say to us when rung. We believe that three times out of four this is
the fault of those using the instrument
rather than of the instrument itself.
However this may be, we feel glad that
there are others who appear, from a paia-
graph in the Globe-Democrat, to be no
cleverer than we are ourselves:
" While the telephone in the drug
store is a useful and essential feature of
an accommodation to tbe public than as
an aid to the druggist. Like tho Directory, the telephone has become a pharmaceutical fixture, and no drug store is
considered complete without both a telephone and a City Directory. The Direc-
otry usually speaks for itself, but not so
the telephone. The average lady who
comes in to use the instrument is ignorant of its mechanism, and courtesy compels the druggist to assist her if not to do
the talking. I never saw a lady yet who
could walk in and work the telephone
without some assistance.
" It is really funny to observe how u
lady goes to work at the instrument. If
she can call np the party she wishes to
talk to, she usually does it in this way,
after the connection haB been made: "Is
that Mr. So and So? No. Won't you
please tell him to come to the telephone,
I would like to see him a minute ?" The
lady always wants to "see" the person
she desires to talk to, although the person may be miles away. Really, the
public haB no idea of the time and
patience it requires from a druggist to attend to the telephone in his store. Not
only does he have to answer thousands
of questions for those who come in to use
it, but he is expected to receive mesBages
and deliver them to neighbors in his
locality. Oh, the telephone is a great
institutien, but it often makes the
druggist wish it had never been invented."
Wnn regard to a paragraph in the
London World entitled, "Literary Notes"
on the subject of the gains of novelists
a well known member of a great English
publishing firm writes: "I believe you
are right in stating that the highest price
ever paid for an English work of fiction
was |the £12,000 which Lord Beacons-
field received from Messrs. Longman for
"Endymion," and, by the way, they
made a very bad bargain. He also obtained from the same firm nearly as big
a price for "Lothair." George Eliot,
who received £7,000 for "Romola,"
made, from first to last, quite £10,000 by
by at least one of her novels, in which
she retained a large share of the copyright. Including American and foreign
rights, Dickens was to have received
£9,000 for "Edwin Drood." Wilkie
Collins received £5,250 for "Armadale."
Of Sir Walter Scott's novels, "Woodstock" produced about £8,200, and as
he was writing nt the same time the
"Life of Napoleon," thc first and Becond
editions of which realized £18,000, he
made (including sums received for reviews and other minor works) £28,000 in
the course of eighteen months! Thackeray was to have received a very high
price for "Denis Duval," the story he
was writing when he died; but thc
largest sum he ever was paid was, I be-
live, a trifle under £5,000, which he obtained for "The Newcomes." Going
back a hundred years, we find Miss Bur-
ney obtaining 2,000 guineas for "Cecilia,"
her second work, and this w.as probably
the highest price paid until the Waverley
era.
It is now conceded we believe on all
hands that the action oi the Eucalyptus
tree in improving unhealthy districts and
dissipating miasmatic influences, is simply invaluable. Twenty-five years ago it
was impossible for the workmen at the
great iron mines of Mokta el Hadid, in
Algeria, to remain there during the
summer; those who attempted to do so
died. Great numbers of children were
also carried off by various forms of fever
and blood poisoning in that district.
From 1808 to 1870 the Company owning
the mines planted 100,000 Eucalyptus
trees, and now the workmen nnd their
families are al.de to live all the year
through on the Ecene of their labour.
This is merely one instance out. of many
which we know, either by hearsay, or of
our personal knowledge. Rome has become a comparatively healthy city since
the marshy plain surrounding it has been
i planted with the Australian Blue Gum.
i The growth of this tree is remarkably
rapid, and though of course a native of a
much warmer climate than ours of Vancouver Island, yet we have seen it flourish where sharp frosts are by no means
unknown. We have seen the Eucalyptus tree growing in great luxuriance near
a house on one of the lower slopes of Table mountain (South Africa.. The night
we spent there (it wus midwinter) thi
thermometer registered several degrees
of frost. New Zealand has its snowcapped mountains and its winter rains
much as we have ourselves; yet the Eucalyptus thrives in many places in that
Britain of the Southern World. Msnv
years ago we sent some of the seed to
England from Melbourne, with tho result that a rather sickly looking tree is at
present growing in the ope,, air in Devonshire. True we arc informed that it is
sheltered from winds by a high wall, bul
il is alive, and England—even beautii'nl
Devonshire—is a trying climate either
for man or tree. A friend in the isle of
Anglesey (North WaleB), also raised
from seed sent to liim by us, two Eucalyptus trees which did fairly well for the
first four or five years of their existence
in that favored part of Great Britain;
though an unusually severe frost eventually killed them both. The owner,
who took much interest in his "Gums,"
had taken the precaution to swathe the
bark in an artificial covering of some
kind, on account of the extreme severity
of the frost, but his care v aa of no avail.
Our winters are we think, so far as our
memory serves us, milder fur than those
of the northern half of England, so that
possibly tbo experiment might be worth
trying, as to whether it—the Eucalyptus
globulus—would grow ilong our strcetB.
If such an experimen. were made and
should succeed, there can be little doubt
that a wholesome Lilluence would be exercised upon at least :'oine of the diseaBeB
which help to fi'l our "silent city." As
we most of us know, these trees would
be easily obtainable in California, where
the}' appear to flourish as though they
were indigenous.
POETRY IN " NEW" COUNTRIES.
President, or whatever other title the
head of the newly-formed government
might take. We think that many of the
opponents of this so-called Home Rule
party are prone to under-rate the extreme
ability of the famous Irish leader. That
he has ability and that of a high, if not
thc highest order, we think has been
very clearly demonstated.

ap's-im
Is it not a little odd that new countries
never breed poets? Of course the United
States can hardly be considered a new
country, with its vast population and
numberless men of leisure; though even
there one could easily count the poetB
who have attained anything like fame on
the fingers of one hand. Australia has
produced not a single poet worthy of the
name, unless we except Gordon, whose
" Sick Stock-Rider " received highly
eulogistic criticism from the London press
some time ago. Very cold countries are,
we believe, also non-incubators of the
poetic fire. We remember reading somewhere that the nearest approach to
poetry which the inhabitants of Spitsbergen  bad reached, was in tbe lines:—
" Whales to eat are tough when old,
Jimini crimini, isn't it cold."
We once heard of a professional obituary poet in a thriving prairie town in the
States, from whose specimens which we
saw in the local Necropolis, we infer tbat
a flat, uninteresting country, is not conducive to the possession of the divine
afflatus, any more than a land of eternal
snow and ice. Surely such poetry (?)
as the following, bears out our theory:—
" AMliction sore
Long time she bore:
Physicians were in vain I
Lock-jaw ketched her,
Death it fetched her,
Gone to rise again."
If not that, then perhaps this:—
" A perfect female folks did consider her,
" She's gone and left n weepin' widower."
Or this:—
'* On earth could not stay Marier,
S<> she died and -went up higher."
MR.    PARNELL.
The news which reached ub yesterday
of a Bank Manager and his Assistant
being shot dead at Ballymena, Ireland,
lends emphnsis to the proceedings of the
Paknei.i, Commission. Mr. Parnell's
cross-examination in the witness box iB
somewhat lengthy, nnd occasionally
tedious, us reported"*!! the London Times.
He—Parnei.i.—distinctly asserts that he
has done all in hiB power to discountenance outrage and crime among his countrymen, though we think any impartial
person reading the evidence, must come
to quite an opposite conclusion. We
very much doubt, however, if the arm of
the law will be able to reach this cool
calculating astute man. The only Irish
leader who hns been able to retain his
hold over his followers for any length of
time. Mr. Fabnei.i, is by no means eloquent, hns but little sense of humor, and
is not even impassioned in his delivery,
Aa we have listened to bim, we have
found ourselves wondering wherein lay
the man's charm for, and power over his
adherents. His characteristics are essentially those of the Anglo-Saxon, rather
than of the true Milesian; he is not even
a Catholic, which means much whore
three-fourths of Ireland aro concerned.
Notwithstanding these draw-backs, we
believe that if Ireland received Homo
Rule to-morrow, she would unanimously
elect Mr. Pahnem,, Prime Minister,  or
Contractor and Builder.

Ouo day a half grown chicken got its foot

home.
"It hollered and hollered," she Bald "and

Where They Discourage Tramps.
The regular' tramp of tho north ls hardly to
be found In the Carolina**. 'Now and then n
negro who haa hod to "skip" from somo neighborhood goes wandering about until run iu
by a constable, but the sight of a white tramp
in the country is very rare. I was out looking ovor a plantation one day when one of thc
hands como up and reported a whito man
asleep on the roadside. A dozen of tho laborers were summoned and we inarched down to
the spot. Ho was a sure enough whito tramp,
and he hod stretched out for a snooze. Each
negro cut a switch from a bit of swamp, anil
the wanderer was then aroused.
"Where aro you from?" was asked.
"Ohio."
"What brought you here?"
"Travollng for my health."
"Is your health good I"
"Tolerably fair."
"Aud what's your gate?"
"Three miles an hour ou tho average."
"Well, we'll give you a send off up the hill.
Put on a tonic, boys."
They laid tbo switches on to him with
hearty good will, following him for forty rods,
and he never looked back as be rose the hill.
The next day I saw him at a railroad station
eleven miles away, ami while the train was
waiting a constable collared him, hoaded him
down the track and started liim off with a
"lift" which loosened the roots of bis hair.
Twenty rods away the man halted long
enough to shout back:
"If thar's ary Yankee on that train, 1
want him to tako notico of how northern capitalists seeking Investments In this country
are mado to feel to home aud taken to tbe
bosom of tho peoplel"—Detroit Free Press.
It Works Both Ways.
First Detective—I'vo got the two men who
committed that murder. Their names are
Chinks and Kinks.
Second Detective—You don't say sol How
did you discover them?
"I ran across Chinks ouo day, and charged
him with tho crime.h
"Yes.   How did ho tako It?"
"He changed color—a suro sign that ho is
guilty."
"True—and tho othor?"
"I saw Kinks soon after, and boldly
charged him with tho crime."
"Good!   How did ho act?"
"He did uot ohango color at all—a sure
sign that he is a hardened criminal."—London Tld-Bite.
Feminine Flnessa*
A little [gUi hearing her mother read a
mmlster's|ozperienco, as to how fresh roasted
peanuts had cured him of insomnia, asked:
"Ma, what is insomnia?"
Her mother explained to her that it was
when a person could not sleep sound.
During tho day, having some peanuts, she
was approached by her littlo brother, who
asked bor for some. To keep from sharing
with lrini and still show a generous disposition, she said:
"Brother, I am suffering awfully from insomnia, and very much afraid tf you take
any there will not be enough left to cure mo."

A Good Thing.
"What's this fence up bore for?" he asked
of tho ticket taker at one of tho gates in the
Third street depot.
"To prevent mistakes."
"Howl"
"Why, to prevent a man from getting on

"Suro Enough."
'Twas at the usual try sting place,
The usual summer breeze was blowing;
With anxious thoughts I scanned her face
For one sweet glance of love bestowing;
I.vowed by moon—I vowed by stars—
I vowed by Venus, Saturn, Mars.
(These stars were shining at tho time.)
But when I strove to run the flame
Of fickle lovo—and bag the game!
Alas! I met with this rebuff—
(To all my eloquence sublime)
She coyly questional, "Sure enough!"
I pleaded long, 1 pleaded hard,
whllo yet the summer breeze was sighing,
I played my very best trump card
And swore a constancy undying.
I searched her eyes—I -searched her face—
I searched for e'en tho slightest trace
(The oak leaves trombled in the breeze)
Of love returned— a glance—a token.
Ah, me I that I had ever spoken.
She coolly rearranged her cuff
(Misplaced by surreptitious squeeze),
And softly murmured, "Sure enough!1"
I gazed into her dark brown eyes
And sought to solve thoso words perplexing,
Stupidity! uot to surmise
That ber own heart she was indexing.
1 clasped her close—I held her fast—
Her lips pressed close to mine at last.
(What mattered it U tho moon was shining?)
Her meaning now to mo was plain,
For when she spoke thoso words again
I saw that she'd been playing bluff
(Her littlo hand In mine confining)
When she had questioned "Suro enough*"
I've flirted with tho Yankee maid
Who, when you pload, says: "You don't say I"
I've loved the western girl-^afraid
To tell her in tho usual way.
Both types are dear, and each can play
Tbo deuce with hearts the livelong day
(Whether or uot the stars aro shining),
But sweeter, moro distracting—these-
Whispered by southern girl to tease
Man's heart, e'en given in rebuff,
(When heart is sore nnd love repining:)
These artless, sweet words, "Suro enough."

Sometimes an oldt mun comes to me und

it vhas.   lt vhas pleasure for mo to say:
"Dot man who vims feefty years old und haf

himself by n girl of eighteen."
Dot oldt man says bo vhas eater so much

Therefore, it vims better for mo if I tell him:

Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as general Sedative, that have ott.ured
und*,t our personal observation during many

thc more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used -.ny other foim of this,
medicine than Collis I Jrowne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly thc best, and
also from a sense of duty wc owe lo the projj

The steamer Rustler arrived yesterday
morning from Jarvis Inlet with a boom
of logs containing 60,000 feet. The logs
were cut and placed in the water by
Indians.
In passing over the rocks near Carpenter's wharf, the Rustler struck owing
to the low tide. The crew claim that the
Rustler has always followed the same
course near the buoy, and so the only
reason to be given for her striking is that
the tide was exceptionally low.
She only staved on the rock a few
hours, the rising tide soon Holding her.
No damage was done ns Immediately she

not let the whiteman go in the village.

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of thc Throat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
■ensation in the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to thc lungs
producing Consumption and to thc head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
death. At the onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
attention is dangerous and may lost -i
life. As soon as you feel that souie.t..r.g l
wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils
obtain a bottle of Boschee's German Syrup.
It will give you immediate relief:

' A recent French tale has the following
&rneBome plot:—"A lover who has lost
is mistress by death passes a night in
the cemetery where she is buried, and
witnesses a general resurrection, in
which all the dead rectify their own epitaphs, candidly telling the truth about
themselves, however uncomplimentary
it may be. The spectator of this scene
has tne happiness of seeing his dead love
inscribe upon her own tombstone the
confession that the cold of which she
died was taken while deceiving her
lover."
A largely attended meeting of the employees of the Vancouver Coal Company
was held lard night on the Green, to hear
the report of the Committee appointed
to obtain the signatures of tje employees
of the Company for and against retain-j
ing the services of Dr. Praeger, Colliery
Surgeon.
James Gordon was elected Chairman,
and Harry Jones, Secretary.
The meeting wns opened by receiving
the reports of the Committee appointed
at last meeting.
11. Lamb read out the numbers of signatures of employees at the various
mines belonging to' the Company. They
stood as follows:
No. 1 shaft, 'A2 for retaining tlie services of Dr. Praeger, and 34 against.
Southfield— .13 for and 43 against.
No. 3 shaft, 3 for and 54 against.
Leaving a majority against Dr. Praeger
of 03.
The report of the Committee was
adopted and the Committee thanked and
dismissed.
A motion was made to appoint a Committee of three to wait on Mr. Robins
and acquaint him with the result of the
meeting and ask for Dr. Praeger's dismissal.
Tlie Chairman said that wus going rather too far. It is well known that every
Colliery has to have a Doctor, and lo ask
for Dr. Praeaer's withdrawal would be
intruding on tbe Company's rights. Better put it that the men are dissatisfied
with Dr. Praeger.
Ramsay—I claim that the men have a
perfect right to a Doctor's services for
the $1 a month tbey pay to the Medical
fund. A majority of the men are against
Dr. Praeger and Mr. Robins will understand what that means. If Mr. Robins
wishes to retain his services, all right.
A Miner—I should say give the matter
a fair a fair trial here, and let all speak
out.
A man on the outside said lie had a
great grievance against Dr. Praeger. I had
a boy who was very sick. I asked Dr.
Praeger to come and see him. He said
he could not come as it was out of hours.
He asked me where 1 lived, and I said
on Haliburton Street. He replied I
can't go there, I have been on Haliburton
Street twice already, I have other things
to look after. My son was very sick; it
might have been diphtheria for all I
knew. His bread and butter depends on
our $1 a month, and yet he can't attend
to colliers owing to outside practice.
The Chairman—A motion was made
that a committee of three be appointed
to wait on Mr, Robins and notify bim
that the men want Dr. Praeger removed.
T. McLay said that under different circumstances the majority one way or the
other might be large. Very few had
signed.
A Miner—1 think the funds collected ought to be in the bands
of the men. A medical committee
should be appointed from among the
men and bosses to receive the funds and
appoint a doctor.
A voice in the audience said that if
Mr. Robins hired a doctor himself it was
probably because he understands more
about it than we do. Dr. Praeger is only
the servant of tbls body of men, not a
master, but il he be allowed to conduct
himself as heretofore, he verv soon will
be.
J. Bradley said that only a portion of
the men had signed the petition, over 300
had not signed it at all. Some prefer the
ballot. Let us take a ballot on pay day.
T. McLay said a Doctor can't suit
everyone. Why should not 1 mid others
who may wish to do so, give our $1 to
other doctors. Dr. Praeger is too busy,
evidently.
R. liooth didn't think that scheme
would work as some would pay to one
and others to another, and a great many
would not pay at all. A colliery Doctor
is supposed to be kept \iy the contributions of miners.
Tbe Chairman here remarked that God
Almighty could not please everybody.
T. McLay Baid that a colliery surgeon
ought to have the good will of a majority
of employees,which we know Dr. Praeger
has not.
The Chairman said that the miners
must be al'raid that there is something
behind the signing of names, as so few
had done so.
A miner said it was hard tbat men bad
to have a doctor that they had no use ior.
If tlie full amount collected in the office
were put into a fund it would soon accumulate, and people would know what
was being done with it.
The Chairman said tbat this talking
was all out of order. A motion was
before the House that a Committee of
three be appointed to see -Mr. Robins.
Bradley said that this business had
not properly tested the feeling of thc
men.
A niiner said that tlie man who wished
to vote one way or the other ought to
have done so.
T. McLay—Yes, they ought to have
taken sufficient interest in the matter to
have done so.
It was moved and seconded that all action previously taken in the meeting be
rescinded.    Carried.
J.Ramsay moved that tbe feeling of
thc V. C. Company on the subject of Dr.
Praeger be ascertained by secret ballot.
R. Booth Baid be was in favor of
having a fresh doctor though he had not
voted as yet and would nol vote secretly.
He though an action like that would leave
tbe men without a  doctor.
T. McLay said he was sorry to hear
Mr. liooth speak that way, every one
ought to take an interest in the mutter.
The motion carried.
A motion was then made tbat a committee be appointed to see Mr. Robins
and find out it he be agreeable that the
money that is collected at the office for
medical purposes, be placed in a fund.
An amendment was submitted that a
permanent Medical Committee be appointed to look after the Medical Fund ;
the same committee to wait on Mr.
Robins to find out if be be willing that
the money should go into a common fund
to employ a Colliery Surgeon. Motion
carried,
J. Bradley. II. Ramsay and W. Ross
wero appointed to attend to the Secret
Ballot business next pay day.
R. Booth, R. Lamb and II. Jones were
appointed as a Medical Committee.
i£,The meeting then adjourned.
We believo that the employees of the
V. C. Co. number at present, somewhere
about G00 bunds, so that those who took
part in tbe voting, as given above, made
about one-third of tbe total.

around a lectio I found that Cy was on the box.
Ho was a-holdin' up his dukes and knockin'
tho boys right and left. I overheard
him talkiu' to our Bill about 'position,'
'guard,' 'break away,' 'knock out' nnd sick,
and every day ho got sassier and sassier. Ho
was 18 year's old, but I alius lick my boys till

to buck. Thar' was Bill and Tom and Jerry
to bo affected by his example, and I felt that
sunthin' orter bo done. Ono day we was
hoein' corn, and Cy was off. I didn't mind it
fur awhile, but bino by I got riled aud said:
" 'Seems to mo you nr' achln' fur a lickin.'
" 'Mebbo 1 am, father,' bo roplies, as cool
as ico, 'but I shan't git it I'vo bin licked fur
the last time.'
" ' 'Causo why?' I asked.
" ' 'Causo I won't allow it.'
"Then I know tbat tho thno had como

He'd bin put on to a new upper cut two or
threo days beforo, and ho was calkelatin' on
spilin' my chawin' machine at tho fust blow.
He looked the jim dandy as ho squared off,
and I rayther anticipated tho wust. I never
fit iu my life, but when we squared off I was
bound to down Cyrus.   Says I:
" 'Cy, will yo quit yer sass aud knuckle if 1
don't lick yo'l'
"And ho snid: 'Father, ralsoyer dukes a
lectio higher, and look out fur me!'
"With that ho tapped mo on tho storeroom
with ono hand and cuffed my ear with tho
other, apdl sailed in. Ho givo mo oaoon
