WHO ARE OVERWORKED.
Every now and then we bear expressions of Sympathy for some class which
earns its living bv mental rather than
manual labor, which if Bald to lie overworked. This remark applies more especially to women, as the approximate
wages paid women for the amount of
work done is said, and with truth, to be
much lower than that paid men for corresponding work. The duties of man are
not less laborious than those of woman.
and it follows that if the strain upon
them is not so great they must la1 better
fitted for the work, or, at least, better able
to bear the burden. This, if we admit
Ihe overwork premise, is a branch of the
topic which might be profitably discussed,
but we are ol the opinion that in the
great majority of eases in which mental
toilers are said to suffer from overwork
there is, when tasks are self-imposed,
cither no such suffering, or it is the result
of inadnptibility, with its consequent
•worry.   This is also largely true of mini-  the mind of

This world is going forward, not back-: nailV
ward.    Its  onward  movement  will be1 r    -'
helped by getting rid of wrong ideas and
getting hold of right ones.
One wrong idea is the one as to overwork. It spiings from the fact that so
many persons nre wrongly placed. Take
the occupation .ut school teaching. The
man or woman of the requisite scholi stic
attainments, with proper tact, temper,
teaching nnd governing abilities, finds the
work not a burden, but 11 source of enjoyment. It is not without some drudgery, but the capable teacher will make
light of this as a mere incident. And this
is true of all professions nnd of all callings, beyond that of the unskilled
laborer. There . are in the country
preachers, doctors, lawyers by the hundred, who can never reach mediocrity in
their profession, and it is not because of
luck of work. They have no aptitude for
their profession, and their tasks arc.
therefore^ Irksome. There is net a man
who does not know of failures in pursuits
Wherein the cause was utter lack of capacity.
Take the great statesmen of the world.
Think of the vast amount of labor they
have done. Look at the men who are at
thc top of any profession—tlie place
where, it has been well Bald, Ihere is
always room. They have been veritable
giants among workers, but Ihe work, and
thereiri the secret lies, was such as they
ile'.igljfeit to do. The men of eminence in
any .calling—manufacturers, merchants,
builders, artisans—nre men who love
their iro*k for tin; work's sake, In even
eomniunily there nre men now enjoying a
vigorous old age, and who have all Iheir
lives been workers—sometimes, as the
libnls* goes, the hardest, kind of workers. I
Hut those who have been most successful
have worked easily, by no means I
leisurely, brjt without that effort which
wears men out.
Ab a rule, as we have   said,  Ihe  over-;
worked are they who are engaged in occu- j
pations for which they are unsnited.   The
conscientious man nr woman who bus an i
inner hatred of his or her daily toil is sub- j
ject to greater worry than the one who is
callous.   The person who, with a marked :
distote for a calling into   which accident
has lend or thrust him, has a strong liking for another, is bound, soon or late, lo ,
get where his inclinations direct him, and
lie  is tho more contented.   The bugbear
of overwork disappears when one has thai j
to do which he enjoys doing.
Tne  suggestion   that  has often been!
made to parents,   and   it  cannot he too j
often repented,   Hint   thoy should study j
well the tastes and Inclinations of  their
children.    When   the   time  comes that
they must earn their own living.it will he

THEPOINI'AT WHICH   OVJklNAgTICS BE;
CAMD b.WOEROUS TO FAMIIA
DISCIPLINE.
"This 'ere athletics and gymnasiums
is nil wrong," snid the old man, as he
la'd down his paper and began to
Bht|:!c a three-ply peanut. "I've had a
fnmple.of it in my own family, and I
know how it works,"
"Don't you believe In such exercise
for a voung man?"
"Wall, the exercise may be all right,
but the fellers git false ideas in their
heads.    Take my son Cyrus, fr instance.     Oy «aia leetlc inclined to
r.insnmption and I rayther encouraged
gymnastics,      It wasn't three weeks i
afore he begun to git sassy.     I gave !
him a lickin' one (hy,  md I could see j
that he didn't take it kindly.     He began to put on airs over his mother, and
when I cum to inquire around a leetl
I found that Cy was on the b 'j*.      II
was   a-holdin'   up   his    dukes   am!
knockin'  the  boys  right and left.    I
overheard him talkin' to our Bill about
[position',     'guard.'    'break    away,
'knock out,'and sich, and   everyday
he got sassier and sassier.     He was iS
years old,   but I   alius lick my boys
till they are past 20.   I saw that Cy
wasgoin'to buck.    Thar'was Bill and
Tom  and Jerry  to be affected by his
example, and I  felt   that   somethin'
orter be done.    One day we was hot in'
corn, and Cy was off.     I didn't  mind
it fur awhile, but bine-by I got riled
and said:
"Seems to me you ar'achin'fur a
lickin'.'
" 'Mebbe I am, father,' he replies,
as cool as ice, 'but Islian'tgii it. I've
bin licked fur the list lime.'
" ''Cause why?' I as'ccd.
" ''Cause I won't allow it.'
"Then  I  knew  that lhc lime had,
come  when   he'd got to have sunthin' j
stronger than boss medicine.   Ilt'd got
the big head on him tremenjns, and ii
was then or never.
"Suppose we walk  over to the barn,
Cy?' I kecrltisl/ remaik'dnsl finished 1
a row.
"He said he was my huc'tlebSrry,!
and we dropped  our hoes and went.
When we got inside both began to peel j
by mutual consent, and Cy '-arried a'
grin all over his face.     He'd been put
on  to a new  upper-cut two or three
days before, antl he was calkelalin' on

Tliurkfluy,  April 4th, I8.B
LOCAL AND GENERAL,
A Pleasant  Bubpbise—Last evening
about 7:30  o'clock Rev.   Mr.  and  Mrs. I
Hall were agreeably surprised by a party !
of friends lo the number of thirty or forty,
who having brought with them well laden
baskets, tool, possession of Hie l'nrsoiin. e
and in due season a most   sumptuous repast wns   spread.   Ample   justiVo haying
lieen done  to tbe   [rood things   provided,
the remainder of   the evening   was spent
right socially, and all o s 'on tne hour for
separating arrived.   Mr. and  Mrs. Hall
having been away for some   weeks, those
of their friends who H ere able to ho pre. -1
uut,   took this  method of indicating the I
pjcafuro  it afforded tbem to  have them
hack to the Parsonage again. Such tokens
of heartfelt approciat'o i   do   much to'
smooth the t atllway of tlie faithful pastor,
nnd give   him to feel   that   bis   lines are
fallen in pleasant places,
A rioATiNii Cm n Wanted,—The first
Temark of a stranger coming to Nanaimo
is, what a beautiful harbor, and what
facilities for boating I And yet with all
<nr natural advantages wo have no organized lioating club. Most towns that have
only a river running through them sport
n boating club or some association that
has for its object the encouragement of
aquatics. Nanaimo could always (in the
case oi her owning a boating club*,; find
worthy antagonists in tbe cities of Victoria or New Westminster. We have undoubtedly tho men, and boats could easily be acquired. The 24th of May is approaching. Let ns endeavor in all things
to equal the other cities of the west coast
of Canada.
•wssession of one mare, one set of hui«
o is, hammer ami driver, a pair oi shafts
nni tour kegs.
Mr. Seoular appeared for defendant,and
admitted possession of all tbe articles but
wo kegs.
Tho evidence adduced by the plaintiff
: showed that lie had leased the brewery
j from defendant, nnd the defendant had
afterwards taken possession of the prom-
■ isi'K and articles now sued for, in default
. of payment of rent, and still led pos-
| session of them.
Mr. D. Smith said he bad sold the mare
I to Cawthorne, but before receiving the
money for It, the defendant hud tnkon tl e
mare oat of bis possession, and then
Cawthorne had refused to pay for il. He
estimated ibe value ot the goods retained
to bo about $180, The defendant stated
that be was tbo proprietor of the l.uns-
downi' brewery, nml that be luul leased it
to the pi lintill' last May for a period of
three days. He also stated that Mr.
Smith told liim to retail! tlie goods and
chattels.   Defendant also snid Unit Caw-
1 thorn? told him that Smith said he could
ll e the mare.
Mr. Smith was recalled and d 'iiied having told Cawthorne  to   use the inure, or
! that he luul told him lo keep ibe harness,
slini'is, _<•., for his pay.
Mr. R, M. Ynrwood appeared  for the
j |ilainiiir.

Reduciio; In Mixers' Waobs—The
Oilman, Franklin, Black Diamond and
t'edar Mountain Mining Companies, in
Washington Territory, decided on March
15th to make a reduction of li percent.
•>n the wanes of their employes. The
miners would not agree to Ibe 'reduction
at lirsl, hut finally decided to accept the
terms on Thursday Inst. The cause of the
cut on wages was tbe reduction in tlio
price of coal In San Francisco. The miners recognized the fact that the mine own-
•ett could continue to pay the old rate of
wages, so consented to the reduction.
The average wages of mil ccs under the
old rate were J8.48 per day and under the
new rate they will be reduced to about if:l |
per day.

Letters From the People.
Editor Courier:—The report of the
fotnmittee of the House appointed to visit
the Victoria gaol dwells in one clause
upon the desirability of keeping the prisoners engaged upon some useful employment within the walls. Let tne quote the
ixact phraseology of the report. ''Your
committee recommend that the prisoners
be employed upon the gaol property IU
place of [upon] work outside of the gaol
precincts." Why the gaol of the city of
Victoria should be especially singled out
for inspection by a committee of the
House and the rest of the eaols allowed
to take their usual course without any inspection, one is ut a loss to understand.
The work of the committee should have
lieeu extended to embrace New Westminster and Nanaimo, if any inspection by
such committee was necessary. The suggestion of the committee that" the prisoners (I will not call them "chain gang,')
should be employed within the gaol pre-
cincst is a good one, and should, I think,
extend to the gaol of this city. The unpleasant sight of a number of "our fellow-
beings, with leg irons and so forth attached to them, marching through our
streets, is repugnant to Ihe feelings of any
person who bus a spark of manliness or
humanity aboul him. Quite a number of
these men have found their way to the
gaol through bitch which are of common
i-very-duy occurrence, and many, again,
are there on account of their inability to
pay a paltry fine of u few dollars for some
