PARNELL.  EXAMINED.
When Mr. Parnell appeared to-day lie-
fore the Parnell Commission he surprised
thc court by staling that be wished to
make a correction in tlie testimony he
had given last Friday, where
he stated that . ho bad intentionally misled tlie House of
Commons in regard to secret societies
in Ireland. Mr. Parnell said tbat upon
referring to Hansard's report of the
House of Commons, ol the speech in
question lie found that tlie remarks
which Sir Richard Webster quoted on
Friday referred particularly to Ribbon-
ism und Ribbon societies, nnd not to
secret conspiracies generally. "Therefore," said Mr. Parnell, "the statement 1
made in the House of Commons was
fairly accurate. The facts ure that Rib-
bonism practically did not exist at that
time." This statement caused quite a
sensation in court. Sir Richard Webster then proceeded with tlie cross-examination of the witness. Mr. Parnell
said that ho had never heard that one
hundred guineas had lieen paid lor
the defence of the Moonlighters at thr.
Cork Assizes in 1882. If he linn
lieen asked to make such payments, the
witness said that in those days he would
havo approved of doing so fof the defense
of the men. If he had reason to believe
that tlie law was being strained against u
man. As a general rule, liowover, he
would limit such payments ns far as possible. The witness reimbursed Mr.
Harris, who made himself responsible
for tlie defense of a prisoner. At the
same tiuie be instructed Mr. Hiuris not
to undertake like defenses in the  future
Parnell said he hud sometimes paid
out money Irom his own private a (count
in behalf of the league. lie had no objection whatsoever to the inspection of
his private accounts. In answer to a
question regarding physical force, he said
tho majority of the physical torce party
were utter strangers to him, He had
never heard that Mr. Egan had joined
the Clan-na-Gael, and would regret exceedingly to find thut gentleman rejoining
the ranks ol Ihe physical forces. Parnell
said he could not accept the reports of
his American speeches published in the
Irish World as in any degree accurate.
Mr. Ford, editor ot that paper, garbled
speeches to suit the taste of tlie readers
ofthe World,

AROUND TOWN.
1 am always amused at tbe dry wit and
humor displayed by Aid. Nightingale
in the City Council. When that august
body holds its weekly sittings, there is
always a ripple of mirth to relieve tlie
monotony of the proceedings, and Aid.
Nightingale is generally the cause. As n
champion of the Salvation Army he
shows up exceedingly well, and his caustic remarks on various subjects often
have u beneficial effect—they bring the
Council proceedings to a close. If I felt
inclined to be sarcastic I might find a
good deal of fault with our city fathers,
and haul them over the coals for the
manner in which they do business, but
I ween they are only mortal and the
work done by tbem will compare favorably with tbat of any other municipal
hotly in tlie province.
It does seem that Aid. Mahrer docs not
like tlie methods which the Salvation
Army employ in order to pluck brands
from the burning. The worthy alderman
is sincere without doubt, anil what he
means he says and what lie says he
means. The Salvation Army disturbs me
sometimes, but I have to grin ami bear
their "manifestations, "hoping all thing*,
believing all things and enduring all
things. At the same time I do sometimes feel that if they were a little more
subdued they would confer a favor upon
others aa well ns myself. But then
when one is fighting tlie devil one hns to
employ peculiar methods.

The twenty-fourth of May sports promise to lie a "success notwithstanding thc
counter atti actions elsewhere. The programme for the occasion is a good one,
and it ought to present sufficient attractions to our people to enable them stay
at home and enjoy themselves. A whole
lot of fun can he hail at home. Of that I
am assured, ami 1 believe that those of
our citizens wlio stay at home will not
be disappointed either in the quantity or
tlie quality of the sport offered them.
One feature which was omitted from the
sports programme was a single scull race
for ladies. 1 notice that we have some
lady scullers who would put the blush of
shame, as far as handling the oars is concerned, upon the bronzed cheek ef yours
truly. But there, I um a fervent admirer
of the weaker sex, and nut wont to look
upon them with a paternal eye which
excuses any defects, and which, perhaps,
also exaggerates their numerous good
qualities. But there ore some daisy
scullers among the ladies of Nanaimo. 1
have watched them handle the oars myself—and shall I say it—with envy.

from enterprising travellers the fault will
lie with ourselves nntl we will miss the
last ami only chance to purchase tlie
"balm" which a kind Providence bus

hereafter through u lack of foresight on
our part, in not availing ourselves of the

terrible wail, saying to ourselves the
"fakirs" are gone, the spring time is

RAILWAY COMMISSIONERS.
Washington. May 7.—Representatives
of 25 or more railroad companies, whose
lines extend west of Chicago, appeared
before the Interstate Commerce Commission to-day to answer an inquiry of
the commissioners on the sale of tickets,
it appeared from the statement submitted that most of these roads aro paying
commissions, about HI per cent. They
are and have lieen working since the first
of last February. They are under agreement with the Western States Passenger
Association. They pay these commissions
to accredited agents "of connecting lines
only, and do no business whatever with
ticket brokers. It was stated by some of
the officials present to-day tbat none of
the railways paid commissions on tickets
east of Chicago.
WILL   WIND   UP.
New York, May 7.—The New York
Equitable Fire Insurance Co., of 58 Wall
Street, has resolved to wind up ita affairs
forthwith. The company was incorporated in 1883. The capital of the company
ia $219,000, and the surplus over all liabilities on January 1st, 1889, was $290,-
873.37, The Board of Directors has passed resolutions declaring a dividend of one
hundred per cent, anil appointing committees to wind up the affairs ofthe

the Fire" insurance business is stated to
lie the cause for this movement.

TRYING   UORSE  OWNERS.
Chicago, May 7.—The Board of Appeals
ol the American Trotting Association
begun its annual session this morning at
the Sherman House. The members
ol the board present were: President
Charles Green, of St. Louis; Secretary
J. H. Steiner, of Detroit, and Directors
C. L. Benjamin, Saginaw; W. P. J.
James, Terrc Haute, Ind.; Edward C.
Lewis, Ottawa, 111., and John Farley,
Toledo. Tbo secretary reported 38 cases
on the docket for adjudication. The
morning session was devoted whollv to
the hearing of testimony in thecaBes. At
the scBBion this afternoon other cases are
lieing taken up, and with the completion
of the hearing it is probable tbat the
board will go into an executive session
to puss judgment upon the cases. The
first case heard to-day was that of J mlgc
Walter C. Hayes and C. A. Williams, of
Iowa, who made an appeal to the board
for a reversal of the decision of tbe judges
of the Iowa State Association in 1888 in
the case of the horse Axtell, which the
judges protested us trotting out of his
class. E. H. Broadhead and Irwin John
Green, of Milwaukee, who were suspended by the Eau Claire Association for nonpayment of entries, make the claim that
they made no entries at the meeting in
question, antl were therefore unjustly
suspended. The last and most important
case of the morning was of the well
known horsemen the Sire Bros., owners
of Harry Hilkcs antl other liorseB. They
were expelled from the association for
false entries of Lexington at St. Louis
and Kansas City last fall. They introduced men and additional evidence,
John Hambrick, of Buffalo, who was suspended at the same time and for tlie
same reason, joined iu the petition.

applied for a pension as a widow of Alexander McNeil, who while engaged in a

CANADA  AND  JAPAN.
Thb interview published in the Courier
ol yesterday with Mr. James Tboi p, Her
Britannic Majesty's Consul al Yokohama,
Japan, is an interesting one. Mr. Troup
is a man wlio has studied the conditions
olthat country and who is thoroughly
conversant with the varied phases of
life ut present obtaining In that country.
We are sure that the views of that gentleman on the existing conditions of
affairB in Japan are worthy of impartial
consideration by all who are interested in
Canada's present and future welfare. Until the establishment of direct communication between the Dominion and the
far East little was known oi Japan or its
products. Now the trade between the
two countries is assuming proportions,
which a few years ago were entirely undreamed oi. To the philanthropist and
tlie optimist the strides which this hitherto benighted country is making must
give unbounded satisfaction. Emerging
as it is from a state of comparative barbarism, to the full fledged light of civilization and progress, there ie ample cause
for congratulation, and the hope of the
future is that Japan once freed from tlie
absolutism and exclusion which has
marked its former history will in the
near future be a land of great expectations and one wherein the latent powers,
repressed necessarily by narrow minded-
ness and prejudice, will under the beneficent influences of European and American civilization and enterprise be fraught
with the richest blessings to that hitherto
comparatively unknown land. The
Japanese, while conservative, nre
not nearly so much so us tbe
Chinese. Tlie former are far more
enterprising, they having seen and tasted of the sweets of civilizalien, and having freely intermingled with foreigners
are anxious to partake of the advantages
which such civilization and progress
bring, and to this end they are gradually
throwing down every barrier of exclusion
which has prevailed from time immemorial. The statement of Mr. Troup that
one third of tlie ten exported from Japan
comes to Canada is surely worthy of consideration, and it also shows the possibilities which the future has in store for
the development of a trade between the
two countries. Canada hits within her
borders just these commodities which
Japan locks, and the latter is enabled to
supply the former with commodities
which it is impossible for this country lo
produce. It will not be far fetched when
we say that Japan as a field where Canadian products may find a field to-day
stands unrivalled among the countries
with which Canada bus commercial relations. The commercial connection is yet
in its infancy, and we may reasonably
expect that the next few years will build
up a magnificent trade between the two
countries. According to Consul Titoup,
the United States at present enjoys a
comparative monoply of the carrying
trade. The exports of that country find
a good market nnd a ready sale, and an
ever increasing trade is developing between these nations. But we also
gather from that gentleman's remarks
that it is not the intention of the Japanese Government—which is liberal und
progressive—to give any one power a
monoply of privileges. Equal
rights are to be granted to
all, and, of course, Canada
with her present facilities of commanding
trade will reap its share of the utlvun-
tages accruing from the opening up and
development of the trade of the land of
tbe Rising Sun. That the Canadian Pacific directorate are alive to the importance of the trade between Canada and
East is apparent from the efforts being
made to establish a paying industry, und
one which while bringing profit to the
promoters and which will be of
incalculable benefit to all of the
Dominion. We live in an age oi progress and enterprises are to-day conceived
and inaugurated, which a very few years
ago would be considered as tlie very
acme of madness, and the promoters
would have been denounced us fools and
madmen. Our country is young, its
vast resources are only just becoming
known, and, the next decade will no
doubt witness developments which to
day if they were mooted would be pronounced ridiculous in the extreme. The
links which bind the Occidental with the
Oriental are made of no common stuff;
they are destined to be na permanent as
the everlasting hills, and the small beginning of tlie present.will, in the future,
assume a magnitude at present undreamed or unthotigbt of. Our future is
assured, and it remains with us to he
true to ourselves, nlive toour own interests and to the country of our birth or
adoption.
THE   BOARD   OF   TRADE.
many and varied. If the functions oi
the Board be properly acknowledged, ami
i ita legitimate objects andoitns be properly
carried out we havo no hesitation in saying that the benetiis accruing  from  Ibis
i otTOtrhsttion must he !;real. and the influence which il must exert on the city's
destiny will be fob not only in the future
but in years to come. There is much
work for the Board to do. The policy of
inaction which has too long characterized
everything appertainingto this city must
be rflegated to the past; anew departure
must be made and we may confidently
predict that anew em has sel in, liring-
imjuith it the elements which go to
make a city enterprise and progression
—and we may hope that the material of
which the Hoard is composed will not
be slow in taking advantage of everything
that is lo the advantage of Nnnaimo. Tlie
various questions which from time to
time are constantly arising, and which
di reel ly und indirectly affect the city's
Interests, will receive the attention ofthe
lloar-1. The recommendations of a Board
of Trade and its influence with Ihe local
ami federal parliaments is not Inconsiderable, while its voice on all questions of
local import must be felt. We therefore
look confidently forward to the good
work, as far as the city's progress is concerned, which the new Board will accomplish. It is representative; ils officers
ure broad, liberal minded men, ami they
are also practical, a consideration
which must not be overlooked. They
are, we believe, true friends of the city,
and as such we have no hesitation in saying tbat their aims will be lout all limes
advance any object which has for ils aim
Nanaimo's benefit, due word more
and we have done. There is plenty of
work to be done, and tbe newly constituted Board has touch todobefore il. They
should not allow any apathy to be shown
in their work, and with Ihe wise and pro
gressive course which wt feel they will
pursue, there will be u grand impetus
given to the varied resources of Nanaimo
and Ihe entire district.

the same gentleman remark somewhere that
"Our parses should be proud, our garments

"But he didn't live In New York, papa, and
go to Delmonlco balls" And then poor papa,
being nothing but a meek American millionaire, grumbled and fumed a littlo, and
finally put two erlsp greenbacks Into a little
rosebud band, aad, with a kiss as light as
thistle down aud after calling him "you
darling old dear," she ran away.
An unwilling but interested listener to the
Interesting conversation, I began to wonder what tt cost to dress a young lady of
fashion. At the rata of (200 a week It would
be over $10,000 a year, and us my Income was
only halt that and my lady lovs a person of
fashion I pondered. 1 asked a young married man at tha club how much bis wife
spent a year on her clothes. I know I put
the question meekly, but be howled at me to
"go to thunder with my impertinence,"
and so 1 went—or, rather, I Weut to visit
an aged female relative. She told mo
tbat olotbaa had gotten beyond her, and said
all she know was that ber granddaughter
could "dance • 1900 ball dress to ribbons in
a night" Then I became frightened, uud so
consulted a nice little debutante who volunteered to post me ou clothes.
"Of course there is no limit to tho amount
you can spend on clothes," she began. "It
you want to go to Worth and Plngat, or, in
fact, to any of the fashionable Paris dressmakers, you will be obliged to pay a protty
reasonable price. I havo a very nice word-
robs this year, and it cost papa just $3,000.
Whsn we came noma from Europo I brought
Just two Parts dresses, because, don't you
know, if you can't say, 'Borne of my things
are Imported,' you are really nobody. One
was a perfect love of a ball dress, you kuow.
1 wore It the other night, that pale yellow
tulle, all embroidered In silver, with tbe big
yellow sash and satin bodice. It looked very
simple, but it cost me $300, and tben papa
had lots of duty to pay ou It It was made
from a special design und the design destroyed, so that It could not be duplicated.
"Then 1 brought over a carriage dress. 1
haven't worn it yet—I'm waiting until the
other girls wear theirs, then I shall come out
In mine. It was quite a cheap gown; only
cost $150. It is tn four shades of fawu and
of silk and velvet, made In one of those long
directoiro rodingotes that are so much worn,
with a sash of crimson. It was made for tbe
Princess Somebody, I believe, but she would
not pay ber last bill, so they sold it to me for
half price. You ueed not say anything
about that, though."
Bei o she paused for a moment and I asked
bar if her dresses were as costly as those of
the Misses de fiatteur up tbe avenue.
"I should hops sol Why, those girls employ a $5 dressmakor, and do all the plain
tewing themselves, and their father dresses
tbe whole five of them ou $3,000 a year! I
do not inluk I am nt all extravagant, but I
could not dress on $000 a year."
Than we came back to tbe subject of her
clothes and what they cost
"Soma sweet Uttlo dancing gowns, one for
each of the Delmonlco balls, only cost me $100
each. 1 have a specially nice one for the

A Beautiful Veuug Lady Mysteriously
Murdered In Atlanta, Go., During the
War—Found Dead on Her Bed, Arrayed
In Gay Attire.
During the Sherman siege of Atlanta In
1864 n tragedy occurred which has ever since
been enveloped In mystery, and which at the
time almost caused the besieged people to
forget tbe great army which was pressing
iuto tbo city. Tho population of the city
was reduced to less than 5,000 civilians, who
lived in bomb proofs frequently and who,
being cut off from the world, formed a community of its own. This community for the
most part was formed of women and children, the men being absent in tliearmy. The
officers and soldiers nf tho garrison, between
tbe general engagements, would enjoy social
reunion with tbo citizens, and many dances
wero given by tho young ladies for the
amusemoiit of their military admirers.
Before tbe circle around the city was complete thore camo into Atlanta by tbe West
Point roud a young lady giving her name as
Miss Jane Moorehead, from Mobile, Ala.
Her arrival was somewhat mysterious, as
well us her stay in the city. She at once
sought occupation in tho hospitals, where sho
came to bo regarded as an angel of mercy.
ANC1KL Or TUB UOBPITAU
Hor beauty ls described as having been
great, aud she bad many accomplishments
aud was evidently of gentle breeding. She
would never refer to ber past lifo, but it
came to bo believed that her love had died
ou one of the battlefields of Virginia, and
that she had simply resolved to devote her
lifo to the alleviation of the sufferings of the
soldiers In the hospitals.
Later on and nearlug tbo end of the siege a
ball was announced to take place in one of
the houses on Walton street Miss Moore
bead, who never went to a place of amusement, was urged by a captain whom she bad
met in the hospital to go to the ball. The
ladles of her acquaintance also Joined In and
urged her to take this recreation. She finally
consented. When tbe captain called for her
bo found her in a full bridal costume, with
valuable and brilliant jewelry. It was the
first time she had ever so appeared. At tbe
ball sho was one ot the gayest, and teemed
so unlike the tad hospital visitant tbat it attracted general remark. At 3 In tbe morning the ball ended and tbe guest* scattered
for their homes.
When Miss Moorehead failed to arise by 8
a. m. it did not surprise the lady wltb whom
she boarded, but when 10 o'olook came with
no sign of bar the door was opened. There
Miss Moorehead was found fully drafted as
alio lay across the bed, her face toward the
waUL
STABBED TO THK HSAB.T.
A call did not arouse ber, and a touch told
that tho was dead. Two stabs had pierced
ber heart, and were so closely made as
scarcely to make a oraose In her drees. The
sensation which followed was intense. Her
fidelity to the wounded soldiers made every
one ot them feel that she was a titter. The
fears of tbe ladles were aroused at the mysterious assassination.
Who cculd have been her murderer, and
what was his motive! The captain woo had
been her escort the night before had left ber
safely at home, and no one thought of suspecting him at tho time. The chamber win
iluw opened upou the garden. Footstep* leading up thereto showed that II wet through
this window tbat the murderer made hi* way.
Tho fact that not a jewel hod been misplaced
showed that it could uot have been a robber
who bad done the deed. There war* those
who Invented all manner of theories. Tbe
one most generally accepted wat that tome
ouo, struck by her beauty while at tbe ball,
had entered the chamber in the manner described with improper motive, and, finding
himself repulsed, quickly dispatched ber.
Others believed that the oaptaln, wbo had
urged her to marry him, and finding bar obdurate, had committed tbe deed to prevent
her from falling Into other hands. While
the Mutation among the beleaguered people
was at Its height Sherman's forest tutored
the city, scattered the people and prevented
investigation; but when the peopfc a fear
later returned to their homes th* talk of thc
tragedy wat renewed. The captain Dad been
killed meantime In the battle of Jooeeboro,
and tbe tragedy passed Into memory, and to
this day is frequently spoken of—Atlanta

"What are you doing theref"
The man to whom it is addressed ls a short,
thick set man; there is nothing about him
to attract attention. lie is tbe most commonplace man I have met for some ttme. He
is simply leaning against a pile of boxes,
trunks and the liko at a railroad station.
Upon the first glance he looks like a sleepy
old fellow, who may have drunk more than
a flagon of rum, or he may have walked a
long distance, and therefore he is fatigued.
As any one upproached bim iu the crowd ho
looked sharply and then seemed to become
oblivious.
That man is ouo of tbo sharpest detectives
in the state of Massachusetts.
"What are you doing there!" Is the question again.
Quickly, without moving a muscle, without
loosing up again, heauswere Inn low, distinct
voice: "Don't speak tn mo now. I'm watching a mau."   1 moved away.
Presently the crowd grows thicker. Tbe
sleepy gentleman by tho trunks become* suddenly aroused. He moves about very rapidly
among tho people.    What will he dot
Hardly is thero time to walk ton paces
when he has disappeared. The train thunders
into tbe station aud the people get aboard.
The man was nowhere.

Coloring Agates.
A suitable agate, after being thoroughly
dried, is Immersed In a mixture of botiey
and water or lu olive oil, and kept thu* at
least threo days, exposed to a moderate beat
It is then washed, dried and put in a vessel
containing enough sulphuric oold to cover It
The vessel ls thereafter exposed toa gentle
beat for a varying number of hours, when
the porous layers are found to have become
much darker In color. The reason of this is
that these layers, having become saturated
with oil, are acted upou by the sulphuric
acid, which decomposes the sugary or oily
constituent, and forms In its place a deposit
of carbon. It Is in this way that banded
agate is converted Into the onyx, with its
black and white layers, used lu the production of cameos and intaglios.
Exposure to strong sunlight was long ago
found to give a reddish tint to gray colored
agates, and this suggested the burning of
such stones so as to convert them Into car-
nelians. At Oborsteln, likely stones for this
purpose are first dried thoroughly, then saturated In sulphurlo acid and afterward exposed in an earthenware crucible to red heat
They are allowed to cool slowly, and are
then seen to be of a light red color. Not
content with Imitating the rarer natural varieties of agate, suoh as onyx and carneliuu,
German manufacturers have taken to staining agates blue, and all other sort* of colors
unknown to the natural stone. Aniline dyes,
as unnatural as thoy are fugitive, have also
lately been used for agate staining.—Jeweller's Review.
Eat Plenty o.' Onions*
No family ought to Iw without onious the
whole year round. Plant old onious In the
fall, and thoy will come up at least three
weeks earlier iu the spring than by spring
planting. Give children of all ages a few of
them raw, as soon as they are fit to bo eaten;
do not miss treating them with a mess of raw
onions three or four times a week. When
thoy get too large and strong to be eaten raw,
then boll or roast them. During unhealthy
seasons, when diphtheria and like contagious
diseases prevail, onions ought to be eaten in
the spring of the yeur at loast once a week.
Onions aro invigorating and prophylactic
beyond description. Children do not die of
diphtheria or scarlatina, anglnosa, etc., where
onions are freely eaten.—Ball's Journal of

CATCHING  A  BUUOLAB,
That night one of the boldest burglars was
arrested and lodged In Jail. Ho was arrested
on that train and by tho sleepy man.
The arrest was accomplished thus: As a
rough looking man with a tinpail in hissfaand
walked quickly from the depot to the train
tbe detective followed him closely, and Just
as he was about to put his foot on the steps he
tripped and fell to the platform. In an Instant the detective fell on him.
The two men were assisted Into tbe car,
and then the detective apologized for having
fallen on him They tat down together in
the smoking car, tbe old fashioned detective
took out of bit pocket a lot of cakes and ap
pies, and tbey began to eat and talk about
the newa
"Tbat wat a bad bit of work thoso fellows
don* there in Boston. Did you it* tba evening jpapertf'
"What do you mean." said the man,
"Why, that nf* burglary last night"
"Wat there a burglaryt"
"Yea; didn't you hear of ltl Why, they
stole over $100,000 worth of cash securities
and bonds from the bank."
"Indoedl   Any arrests!"
"Not yet, but the officers ore olose on the
track of the leader of the gang."
"Are they! Do they th.uk they bare the
right man!"
''Yet, the/ are watching a man In East
Boston by tbe name of Rldgewood, a noted
burglar."
Just at this moment a mau arose trom tho
seat behind and walked out of ths oar. He
passed on into tbe next car.
"That's our man," whispered the detective
to bis apparently injured companion. The
two men arose and passed Into the next car
after th* fellow who had arisen.
They caught up to the man at be wat going
out of the next car. The train was stopping
at a small station. The man got off. He v
arrested.
"How did you know that was Rldgewood!"
was asked of ths detective.

we fell tbo man did not notice us, but hurried
to the cars; all the other people stopped and
looked on.
SIGNIFICANT BIGHT FOOT WALE.
"The man went directly to thasmoker aud
lit a oigar nervously; lie drow his bat over hit
eyes and nestled down in his seat, apparently
engrossed iu his newspaper. Ths man read
the tamo paper for a long time; be did not
seem to be interested In It at all, although hit
eyes were intently upou it. Thoy ware only
on one spot. We sat down in front Of bim
and began to eat apples and talk. When
mentioned the name Ridgowood he started
from his reverie. I looked him square In the
eye. He got up and left tho car. He waa our
man.
"Ob, about the eight foot walk! Well, you
see, an old criminal wbo has done time will
never get out of the habit of walking up and
down as be has done so long in bis cell. He
will only go about eight feet; that It the
regulation length of cells. Ho does this unconsciously, and even though he may guard
himself against it, beiore be knows it be will
begin to walk up and down.
"Of course," said tlio detective, "no man
gives himself up to justice—no criminal tells
the detectivo that ho is the man. We are
compelled to judge from our experience. A
criminal has a certain look; a peculiar way
of moving secretly, oven iu tlio public places
—in hotels, at theatres, all over. No ouo but
a skillful man In criminal work can toll the
difference, but their actions are readily apparent—they becomo a larger part of a
criminal's nature; he cannot oast off himself.
"Then there are other things certain well
known criminals have," be added, "a distinct style ot work. Tbo crime is always
carefully Investigated and tlio detectives
learn the methods of ihe different men. It is
a school. I cannot explain It to you unless
you are a close observer of human nature
"A criminal In walking along the street
will unconsciously turn his head aud give a
quick glance backward almost every so
often, generally with every hundred steps. I
can tell a man Instantly when I enter a
crowd. That's why these fellows hide away.
They know that if they appear in public they
will be recognised."--Burton Record.

Tb* Inoculation uf Cattle.
The experiments made in New Boulh Wales
by tb* agonta ol M. Paatour, wltb the objoot
of combating that malignant malady in
cattle and sheep known as the "Cumberland
disease," which takes the form of a carbuncle, accompanied with gangrenn of the
cellular tissue, are reported to be brilliantly
success!ill. It Is estimated that the inoculation process now saves in Now South Wales
alone no tower than 300,000 sheep and 40,000
cattle every year, all of whloh would havo
bean destroyed If Pasteur had not como to
tbe rescue. Tbe charge (or inoculating a
sheep is 2d., and for a cow or a steered.,
which amount* to a considerable tax, but the

1880: To J, T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Hloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of con- \
gratulating you upon the wide-spread repu* I
tation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J. I
Collis ..rowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
Itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the Kast. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is im- j
ported into the country, and wc shall 1*
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurt. there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Dlarrnoe,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
["Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a&. general Sedative, that have occurred
untUt 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 '.ny other foim 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 «<*e Ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE TART
OE THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE

Peddling Ml.ii.kcj-.
A rancher from thc Cowichun district
had rather an exciting tune of it yesterday. Thinking he was a born trader he
procured a bottle of square face gin and
offered to sell it to a BiWRSb for *ei. Tlie
Indian bought the liipior and consumed
it, then wanting another lie tendered a
smaller sum of money which being refused he promptly went to inform the
constable. The rancher seeing how things
stood jumped into his skill snd pulled
out from shore. There was a still' breeze
blowing, hut before he could hoist sail it
was necessary to pass Hear Point. The
Indian returning from his search of the
constable saw the fugitive and with three
others took a canoe and soon overhauled
him. The whiskey peddler gave up
without a struggle' and was towed to
shore u captive.

An incident occurred on the Sardonyx
just after striking a rock at Aberdeen,
Skeena river, a couple of weeks ago, which
illustrates the want of proper knowledge
of some people respecting the fastening
ol life-preservers on their bodies. A well
known ex-politician, who was a passenger
at the time, became unduly alarmed at
the vessel's action after striking, and
seizing a life-dreserver asked the question, ''How is it to he fastened on?" A
practical joker near by Instructed the ex-
politician to fasten it to his legs. We are
told by an eye witness that the experienced prospector actually did as directed.
Luckily there was no need of the preparations, otherwise the consequences might
have proved serious.—Timet.

A M.i.i who Triad to Adopt Bpemsn utile*
to English.
A gentleman u-hohas hut recently returned
from California was met at the Weddoll
houso yesterday. Ho Is an Interesting conversationalist, and a master of the Spanish
language. "Tho letter 'J' in Spanish,'' said
ho, "is a puzzler to those who first attempt to
learn the language. 1 will tell you a story
which 1 read in a California paper that will
illustrate this." Tho story ran something as
folIowB: "A fow days since a stranger from
the unconverted wilds (tf the east, where
niugwinnpery was born and tenderfeet attain
their highest stato of seusttfvoness, came out
to Pasadena to visit a friend. While w alking
along Fair Oalcs avenue one day ho said to
his friend:
" 'There goes a man I met at La Junta,'
giviug the 'J' its natural sound.
" 'You mean I.a lluiiia,' replied his friend.
•That Is a Spanish name, aud in that language "J" takes the sound of "II." '
"'Is that sol Well, 1 must try U> catch on
to that.' After strolling along a short dis
toncu further he asked:
''Where are tho caves of La Jolla. which
I seo so much aliout in the papers!
" 'You should say I^i Iloya caves. They
aro about three miles this side of San Diego.'
" 'Darn tho language, It breaks me all up.
That's a pretty nice house ovor there—that's
Armijo's house, isn't it'" And again he guvo
tlio 'J' ils proper pronunciation.
" 'You mean the Armebo house, Yes, it's
a good one, too.'
" 'Damsieliu way of abusing tho English
alphabet. I reckon, tlien, that must bo
llovene's store which   I slopped at   in  Los
Angelas? .
" 'No, that is not a Spanish name. I think
It is Fronch. However, it is pronounced as
spelled, Jevene.'
" 'Well, how in Santa Fe is a fellow going
to toll what is Spanish and what isn't? Why
couldn't they build their languago on the
original plant1
" 'Oh, you'll soon catch It. You will find
it safest to give the Spanish pronunciation to
nearly everything here.'
"An hour later he sat down at the table of
tho elegantly furnished Carlton hotel, and,
after scanning tho bill of faro, the stranger
said to tho waiter:
" 'You may bring rue a uico lmicy pieco of
roast beef, some pig's how 1 with caper sauce,
some fricasseed hack rabbit, some pork with
apple helly, somo boiled potatoes with currant ja—I mean currant bam, and, ah,
some'	
"At this point tho waiter swooned aud tho
guests iu tho room let out. a roar of laughter
that gave tho chandeliers thochills and fever.
Tins mado the stranger mail, and ho leaped
to his feet dike a crazy man, took off his coat
aud threw it dowu on the lloor, stamped ou
it aud how-led:
" 'You fellows aro trying to play mo for a
sucker, but, by tho eternal, you bnvo struck
tho wrong snag. 1 am a disguised cyclone
from Illlnoy and can lick tho wholo crowd.
Spanish? I can sling moro Spanish in a holy
miuuto than Montezuma could in u whole
year. Let some idiot pull off his haekct and
hump Into me, and the lirst timo I hit bun
ho will think hohas the himhanis. Spanish)

dander's up I'm a ravin' hyena. You played
mo for a sucker, but you musii't budge a man
by his looks. Whoop! go rouud tho hubileo.
Somebody come out and faco me. Let some
hiiucrow galoot como to tho front and criticise my Spanish hnrgon.'
"His friends got hold of him and took him
from tho room, and es ho weut through the
door he remarked:
" 'I can take a hoke, but it makes me inad
for a lot of backosses to play too for a
greeny.' "—Cleveland Leader.
An Accessory lo the Fart.
Clone to .lull.
William Jackson, sentenced to two
years in the penitentiary for larceny, was
yesterday taken to New Westminster
jail in care of Constable Stewart. The
prisoner was quite cheerful and seemed
anxious to get to his destination. Probably finding that his crocodilo'tears had
no effect on an unsympathethic public
he decided to brazen it out. Sympathy
is wasted on gentry like Ihis and yet
there are numberless Instances of persons, principally women, making small
heroes out of criminals who make a pretence of penitence in the dock. Tears
are cheap.

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the 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
sensation in the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to the lungs
producing Consumption and to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
lcath. At the onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
tltention is dangerous and may lost , ..r
life. As soon as you feci that soiue.fting is
wrong with your Throat, Lungs 01 Nosu.lt
obtain a bottle of Hoschee's German Syrup.
