strikers' wives ON Ul'ARII.
I'itreburg. July 13.—A special from
Homestead Bays, strikers do not havo
much hope that amicable settlement will
be effected at the conference with mill
officials in Pittsburg this afternoon. Last
night 200 women relieved the men on
guard duty while the latter went home
aad secured much needed rest. The
strikers are all on guard to-day pending
the result of the conference, but every'
thing is quiet and orderly. The leaders
of the strike were in conference with the
officials ot tlie Amalgamated Association
all mroning and had not adjourned at
noon. In Pittsburg, nearly all of the 124
deputy sheriffs were excused until 4
o'clock this afternoon, pending the result
of the conference between tbe officials of
the Amalgamated Association and the
Homestead Mill management. They are
under orders to report for service at 4
p. ni. and will be sent to Homestead immediately if the settlement is not effected.
At 3 o'clock this afternoon the conference between the mill and the Amalgamated officials in this city, had not yet

held for further orders. One carload waB
also side tracked at Fort Wayne depot in

whether they were workmen or Pinker-
tun detectives, all that could be learned
about them was that they were bound

EXCITING) SUICIDES.
Munich, July 13.—This city is tremendously excited over two suicides
which occurred to-day and which, although occurring at different time and
places, evidently proceeded from the
same cause. Lady Acton, sister of Count
Von Arco Valley, Minister to the United
States, ended her life by jumping into
Tegernesee Lake, about twenty miles
south of here, and drowning herself. She
had recently exhibited signs of mental
disorder and her husband having died a
short time ago, her vagaries were attributed to her brooding over her bereavement. The suicide of Lady Acton created
a great excitement, but the feeling developed into positive excitement when it
becaj-se known that Lieut.-Colonel
Count Waldemar Von Blumenthal, Military Attachee of the Prussian Legation,
had shot himself dead with a revolver.
The cause of his suicide can only be con
jectured, but it is quite generally believed
he was engaged to be married to Lady-
Acton and that the two had a serious
quarrel under the excitement of which
both ended their lives.
SAMOAN   NEWS.
Washington, June 13.—The Navy
Department received advices to June 19tu
from rear Admiral Kimberly at Apia,
Samoa, He reports that though the
natives are hard pressed for food, they
have commenced planting and as fruits
will soon be ripe the danger of famine is
passed. The Nipsic was expected at
Honolulu late this morning. The coal
purchased for her by Commander Green
of the Alert, at Honolulu is to be delivered on board at Fanning Island by
the 15th July. The island is 1,050 miles
south of Honolulu and about seven days
passage for sailing vessels from that
place. The Alert will return to Fanning
Island so as to accompany the Nipsic to
Honolulu, All guns and gun carriages of
the Trenton and Vandalia, except one flinch gun belonging to the latter vessel,
been recovered and packed on shore at
Apia. There is nothing left on either
ship ot any real value to tlie Government except the machinery. The Secretary of the Navy has designated January
7th as the day upon which the Trenton
and Vandalia, shall be considered as having been out of commission and stricken
from the navy list.
MURDEB AND SUICIDE.
Boston, July 13—Dr. W. P. White,
aged60. an electric physician at 4, Jefferson Place, off Bennett street, during a
quarrell with his wife this afternoon shut
her and instantly killed her. He then
committed suicide by shooting himself in
the head.
SUICIDES UALORE.
New York, July 13.—Three suicides
to-day, two by a rope and one by poison.
Hiss Dane, a typewriter, from Toronto,
took carbolic acid. She had been here
three months and soon would have become a mother. Ellen E. Malloney, an
aged spinster, hanged herself from a hook
In the celling; she was deranged. Henry
Loose, a tailor, hung himself to the top
of a door. He left papers that $350 be
given to his daughter, also how he wished to be buried, In Brooklyn, Emii Pe-
dino, a barber, aged 36, hung himself in
hin shop.   Business troubles the cause.
WRANQL1NO OVER BELIEF PIJND8.
Johnstown, July 13.—An indignation
meeting this afternoon was largely attended. The following resolutions were
unanimously apopted:
Resolved, That we repudiate as insulting to the manhood ancl intelligence of
our citizens, now that the avenues of
trade are opened up, the imputation that
they cannot and will not wisely and
economically disburse any funds placed
in their hands, and because of this imputation, the arrogant assumption that
guardians must supervise our expenditures, control our disbursements, purchase our supplies and make our
contracts.
Resolved, Tliat, of the statements imputed to his Excellency Gov. Beaver,
that a million and a half dollars have
already been expended in Johnstown and
its vicinity, has no foundation. Only by
gross extravagance and carelessness
could such a sum have been expended
here, and people have received no adequate return tor tbe expenditure of so
large an amount.
Resolved, Tliat the disbursement of the
fund subscribed for tlie direct relief of
sufferers will stimulate business and provide work for our builders and trade for
our merchants. It will provide labor for
our artisans, and will tend to restore confidence in the community, and will thus
directly and indirectly help those for
whom the fund was intended; while any
other course at this day savors of jobs.
Resolved, That it is unfair and unjust
to exact an oatli as to private income and
relief before the bounteous charity of our
countrymen can be distributed to its
beneficiaries.
Resolved, That we hereby appeal to the
custodians of funds at Philadelphia, New
York, Pittsburg and other localities, to
transmit funds in their hands intended
for Conemaugh Valley sufferers direct to
the local finance committee, to bo distributed by their committee immediately,
in cash, upon requisitions of the board of
inquiry upon such a fair nnd equitable
basis as may be adopted.
Resolved, That our citizens have entire
confidence in the good faith, skill and
judgment of tbe board of enquiry ap-
{lointed at tbe citizens' meeting, and the
ocal board which they called to their assistance ; and this meeting cannot look
with pleasure on any attempt of strangers
to supervise their work, perhaps reverse
their findings, and bv exacting extra
judicial oaths inquisitorial inquiries as to
income and other relief, reflect on the
proceedings of the board.
Resolved, That this meeting express its
profound gratitude to many of our own
and otlier lands who have so spontaneously nud generously contributed to the relief of our people.and only now venture on
this expression of opinion, because those
here assembled believe they arc in this
way but expressing the sentiment of the
generous donors of so bounteous a fund,
as they are sure they express those of I lie
intended beneficiaries.

*  . A	
lee Cold Milk Shake at Pimbury's. »
London, July 13.- One of the beBt informed correspondents in Servia telegraphs from Belgrade this afternoon that
the political outlook in .Servia is daily
becoming more serious. There can no
longer be any doubt as to the attitude of
Servia on the outbreak of an Atistro-
Bussian war. The alliance of Servia to
Bussia is an accomplished fact. The
Czar's famous toast to Prince Nikita, ot
Montenegro, ie regarded In Servia as an
open designation of that Prince as tlie
future czarot the Southern Slavs, and the
reuniter of all the Servian race under a
single sceptre. It is also taken to indicate that the great struggle,which everyone knows is preparing between Austria
and the great Slavonic power, is near at
hand. BoBnia is a new Lombardy, and
Austria is deliberately courting the situation similar to that which cost her the
valley of the Po. An extraordinary infatuation seems to have seized upon her
rulers. All concessions of the Bosnian
side are scornfnlly rejected, and hardly a
day passes but tbat some influential organ
at Vienna or Budda-Pesth threatens
THE OCCUPATION Or SERVIA.
Among the highest Austrian and Hungarian officials it is understood the military strength of the monarchy is such as
to enable it to crush Bussia single-handed. The information received by opponents of the Russian policy in Southeastern Europe is of a very different tenor. It is considered, for example,
certain by the best informed Russian
observers that many of the Slavonic regiments of Austria" will lay down their
arms in the face of tlie Russian army,
and that the Roumanian contingent will
follow their example. An insurrection
will inevitably break out in Bosnia on
the declaration of war with Russia, and
the chances are that it will spread to the
old military frontier of Crotia and Slavo-
nia. In Transylvania, Roumanian peasants who have lieen
BRUTALLY  ori'lttssicl)
by their Hungarian landlords, are at auy
moment ready to repeat the Jacquinie of
1848 and of the time of Joseph II. Of
the strength of the anti-Austrian feeling
in the Balkan peninsula itself, perhaps
the best evidence is to be found in the
fact that the Begs of Upper Albania, thc
hereditary foes of Montenegro, have promised to lend their warlike clansmen to
Prince Nikita's assistance In the event
of a "Swabian" invasion of the Black
Mountains. There can be no doubt that
the situation is big with menace, and
tbat either Austria and Russia can force
war with the greatest ease. If so inclined, Austria can force it by bringing a
single regiment into Servia. Bussia cau
force it by bringing about the coronation
of Prince Nikita. Austria entered Herzegovina and kept the way open herself
to Novi-Bazar mainly in order to prevent
the union of Montenegro and Servia.
and it is practically certain that she will
resist their union now. The monstrous
folly of Austria's
OCCUPATION   OF BOSNIA
and Herzegovinia is now clearly seen
The example of Bulgaria haB proved that
if Servia had grown up naturally under
her friendly patronage it would have
been anything but Russian in feeling and
could have been relied on as a barrier
against Russia. But in obedience to that
Wind land-hunger which has always distinguished her, Austria made it her business to steal part of Servin's heritage
and to reduce the rest to weakness and
defence. She has had her reward in
making an enemy of every patriotic Servian, and in saddling herself with a couple
of Irelands in the shape of Bosnia and
Herzegovinia. Bvents certainly point toward the appearance of
PRINCE  NIKITA ON  THE SCENE
at no alislniit date. Servians may very
possibly regard it as to their interest to
bring about a breach now when they are
pretty sure nf the support of Russia, but
Biissii, seeing the formidable oalals
against her, is perhaps not so confident.
She will surely have Germany, anal almost certainly Italy, to deal with as well
as Austria, and a number of signs go to
show that Lord Salisbury will make a
desperate effort to drag England into a
quarrel which does not concern her.
Mr. Si'hnadhorst, the English Liberal
caucus chief, speaking on the latter possibility to-day, said: "Such action on
tlie part of Loral Salisbury would lie
A BLINDER   ANll A CRIME,
but it would divert attention from the
awkward aiuestions at borne, and from
the point of view of a temporary party
advantage Salisbury may think, aiial perhaps rightly, that it would be asueeess."
Salisbury is a fanatical hater of Russia,
and an equally fanatical friend of Austria,
and Bismarck has an extraordinary influence over his mind. In plunging
England into the struggle he would be I
gratifying at once bis convictions and bis
partisanship. Tlie line taken of late by
the Standard, which is believed tn be
much in his confidence, points clearly in I
this direction, nnd has been so interpreted abroad.   ~

with a view to obtaining tlieir signatures
thereto. Several of the signers were
confined in prison us "political criminals"
when the petition was brought round for
signatures. Moreover, in many cases
the same signaUneB appear in three or
more places at the foot of the so-called
memorial. On receipting the expression
of loyalty, as manifested in the "spontaneous" petition ol" tlie Armenians of
Van, who are so overjoyed with the
paternal government of the Porte, the
Sultan ordered the immediate release of

bus ceased to be much noticed in London.
It is due to him to say, however, that he
makes no obvions effort at self-advertisement. He has discovered that every one
is willing to give him credit for the'beet
of intentions. No person of political importance will in any way ally himself
with a pretender seeking to upset the
friendly government of Prance. Under
this condition he bus found it impossible
to make any real headway in London
society and has abandoned any effort in
that direction. He speaks English fairly
well to those whom he.meets. He speaks
of his sojourn here as tolerable and discusses, somewhat freely, his political
plans. In short Boulanger's pregramme
seems to be the Americanization of the
French Republic. He has evidently
studied the Washington system with its
cabinet fixed tor the term oi the President's tenure, the respective functions of
the French chambers and of Congress,
and is clearly of the opinion that n revision, as a remedy for the instability of
the government in France, must take ite
shape from an American pattern.
A . e.
••use II..va! Beds.
Clarence House, tbe residence of the
Duchess of Edinburgh, is one of the most
comfortable houses in London, and is famous for its good beds, for tho only
daughter of Alexander II, of Russia is,
like many Moscovite ladies, very particular about her beds, and will tolerate in
her house none but the very best. Even
when n mere child, and long before her
marriage, Bhe was so particnlar about
this very important item in domestic
comfort that, to insure the sheets being
tightly stretched over the mattress, she
used to have them sewn down, for even
the slightest crease or wrinkle would entirely destroy the repose of this imperial
spoilt child for tho night.
Her royal highness used to be greatly
chaffed about this weakness by members
ot our royal family when first sho came
to this country, but tlie Queen, who is
also very particular about her beds" stuck
up for her, and although now the sheets
are no longer sewn down to the mattresses, they are composed of the most exquisite white linen tliat can be procured,
and stretched like a tight-rope over the
most perfect mattresses that can bo
manufactured in Paris, in which capital
the ranking of mnttresses has been
brought up to the level of the fine nrtfl.

With regard to the proposed new railroad to connect Victoria with New Westminster, the Colonist says: Besides, as
we have already stated, all the advantages which are promised Victoria by
the Saanich road cau be obtained more
readily and more cheaply by othermeans.
Tho Island Railway Company have for
some time entertained the project of
making the routetothe mainland shorter
by establishing a ferry between a point
near Chemainus, and Vancouver. The
distance to Osborne Buy by the Island
railway is aliout thirty-three miles, and
'he distance from that harbor to Vancouver is thirty-three miles, Tlie. sixty-
six miles, half by rail and half by water,
can easily be covered in three hours and
a quarter, The gain in time by this route
will, we have no doubt, be very nearly if
not quite as great as that by the Saanich
route. The citizens of Victoria have
here an alternative Bcheme which does
not require the construction of a new
road, and by which they will not be
asked to hamper themselves by a heavy
liability. The whole subject is worthy of
their most serious consiileration.

American Capital In Mexico.
11 Is estimated that tbe railroad mileage
o! Mexico owned by Americans Is nearly
three thousand miles, and that the capital
thus invested ts upward ot 180,000,000. The
amount of American capital Invested In
mines is thought to be nearly 120,000,000. In
ISTSthe Imports of Mexico were 120,186,0111,
and only t5,£31,*!55 of this came from the
United States, and of this latter amount only
a very small proportion went across tbe
frontier. Last year the exports from this
country to Mexico were about 110,000,000, ot
which more than half went by American
railways to the border and thence by rail to
interior points. The International company
o! Lower California haa a grant, *■**■--«■-*

LOVE   OF   SPORT   IN   ENGLISH-
SPEAKING COUNTRIES.
The publication of so large a number
of sporting novels oi more than average
merit, may be accepted as conclusive
proof that the literature ot Held sports
bus lost none ot its popularity. Knglisb-
speaklng people, no matter whether they
call themselves Britons, Americans,
Canadians or Australians are distinguished among all other nations for tbeir ln-
lense love of field sports, and it is the
conviction oi many einiiienl writers Ilia!
in this inborn taste is to lie attributed
much of the success which undoubtedly
attends our race. We are quite willing
to admit tbat this love of sport may be
carried to excess and bus caused many
u carefully trained boy to devclope inio a
blackguard, and yet we have known instance"*, both in this country ami others,
where shy and nervous youths, who
have been broughl up at their mother's
apron strings, have been converted, by
the Influence oi field spoils, into open,
manly characters, losing all their silliness while retaining all their modesty,
If a certain amount of "roughing it" is
good Ior every human being, then ii is
undeniable that to thousands ii comes
through the medium of field sports,wbobut
for this seductive bait would never have
encountered it at all; and if it is further
admitted that under our present dispensation, the qualities of hardihood, endurance, and intrepidity arc essential to tlie
welfare of our Province, then it is equally
indispensable that field sports are for Ibe
present entitled to our sympathy
support. We would not have our position mistaken in this matter
o
tnd
our
we heartily
endorse the opinions expressed by yesterday's   Colonist as  to  the  disgusting
brutality of such an exhibit ion of sport (?)
as the Sullivan-Kilrain prize light; bul it
is not to such-like so-called sport that we
refer, but rather to the pursuit and destruction of wild animals by various means,
as well as racing, rowing, baseball, cricket
and football, which are, or were, nearly
peculiar to English-speaking countries.
We have seen it stated that the reason why
England and her off-shoots bave grown
into nations of sportsmen is owing to the
fuel that tbey originally  intended their
approval of manly, invigoratingexercises
io show a  kind  oi   lingering  protest'
against the Puritanism which turned up
the whites of it eyes  at   the   /JooA' of
Sports.    In addition to its other uses Ihis
love  of sport  is  most  useful in its tendency lo bring classes together, so that
each may recognize tbe good qualities of
the  other.    We   remember   reading a
characteristic  anecdote  in  the Life of
.Montalumbert, of his astonishment when
the leader of the  Protestant   interest in
the House of Commons was pointed out
to him at Kpsom  examining tbe  points
of the favorite with a critical  eye, nnd
thus exhibiting in bis own  person  that
peculiar combination nf qualities which
would  make  many  an  honest   Saxon
rather canonise his horee than acknowl*
tbe Pope.  Perhaps tbe sceue at Lords' on
n public school day, or along the banks of
the Thames at the Oxford and Cambridge
boatrace, is to be witnessed nowhere but
in  England.   Indeed any great cricket
match In that country wherever  it is
played, brings together large crowds who
have no other motive in what tbey come
to see than is inspired by love of the game.
Cricket clubs, it seems to us, are popular
institutions  whicli  should   always   be
cherished and extended,   They certainly
bring all classes  together in  a friendly
trial ot skill whieh lias nothing mercenary about it.   Perhaps horse racing cannot show quite so clean a sheet and yet
the vast majority of the crowds   which
always floe!.- to "tlie races" don't bet a
cent.   To give our readers some idea of
the intense interest taken by Australians
in horBe-racing, it is merely necessary ',o
state that we have ourselves seen one
hundred and twenty thousand persons on
the Melbourne race course, viewing the
contest  for   "the cup,"    Kept  within
bouids then, it is our firm belief lhal this
uniyersal passion makes for good  rather |
than harm, and that as we have before
said it should be encourageil and fostered
by all right-minded persons.
MOSCOW OVER
race should shave their beads in Mahout-j.

tuft of bair by which  the  Faithful are \
supposed to be drawn up to heaven when j
they  die.   The Chinese, artistic  in all
they do, converted tbe ridiculous sbaygy

now the Chinaman's greatest delight and
priale.    ll  is also a most suitable headgear ior I'ekin. where, in spite ol continual  brusbings, a European's bair ig always filled with dust.
Willi u few exceptions, hardly worth
noting, Mk. iih Windt met with nothing
but civility and kindness iu (lie Celestial
Empire. Ii was on crossing tlie Great
Wall, making bis way through the Mongolian trilies, and traversing ihe sombre
desert nf liobi, tliat tbe traveller's miseries began in earnest, In Siberia tlie
drunkenness and bestiality of the people
were more degrading than anything he
had ever witnessed among lhc most depraved savages of Borneo. The blond-
curdling accounts of the cruelties practised on Russian exiles are, Ma. he
Wixin tells us, much exaggerated. Nihilists end conspirators are certainly not I
treated with undue tenderness; but the
prisoners convicted of ordinary crimes ■

are generally led to believe.. Their

a quicksilver mine in the lehole of Sibe- i
ria." Sometimes an impecunious officer
of the Guards finds himself exchanged
into a marching regiment quartered in
Siberia; there is but one way out of the j

meantime    they   get    tlieir   liv-

■ one bul ;i lunatic would think of
lo escape ont rigid from Siberia.
"During their absence the gallant officer
draws tbe money for tlieir rations, etc,
and   discharges   his   jus!   debts."   The
KamchatdnlfS exude "ancient and iisb-
like smells." but are friendly, hospitable
fellows, very well disposed to strangers.
The Koriaks, on the contrary, are fierce,
savage,    and   sn   inordinately   jealous,
that their wives are never allowed  lo
wash   themselves   for   fear   that   their
ablutions may liave a beautifying effect.
They are even  obliged lo anoint their
liodies with a rancid oil so as to keep any
intending lovers at a safe distance. While
in Siberia Mr. in: Windt me!  with  very
rude and offensive treatment in a restaurant   because be  inadvertently  entered
the room without takint; off bis lull  lo a
picture nf the Czar.   Our traveller found
the   Russian   language   less  difficult lo
learn than is generally  represented;  in
less than a month be  was able  to converse fairly well, and to ask ior whatever
he wanted, though he confesses that bis
grammar  might   have  lieen somewhat
risky,    'flie   Russians   themselves   he
found  invariably   kind,   courteous   ami
obliging;  but this does no! blind him lo
the  fact tbat   Russian  enterprise and
aggressiveness   ure   not   to   be thought
lightly  of.   "For," he says,  "when a
Russian, be he nobleman or moujik, says
'1  will do such and such a thing,' you
may depend upon tt that he will do il,
even at the eosl of his life."   Our author
was most favorably impressed  with the
beauty,   magnificence  and  comfort   of
Moscow; but Warsaw was the brightest
spot in liis generally melancholy journey.
He Saw more pretty  women  In Moscow
in five minutes than nny oilier European
capital,  including London, eoiilal show
him in half an hour.   Prom Warsaw he
proceeded to Vienna, and  from thence,!

to him for having taught us so much that

FROM PEKIN  TO
LAN J i.
It being quite certain to my mind lhat I
I the prosperity of this country is inextricably bound up with the popularity of
| cricket, I hope that local clubs all over
the country will lake notice of one or
two growls that have lately gone up!
against tbe extravagant cost of the
modern cricket luncheon. At the best,1
cricket is an expensive business. If you ;
make luncheon a matter of three or four
shillings without liquor, you practically
close the game to all bnt men of very
comfortable means You probably do
more than thai. A correspondent of a
sporting paper pointed oul the other dav
that the fashionable elnliorate cricket-
luncheon exercises a very prejudicial
influence on the quality of the play. This
is quite natural, for when a young man is
charged lis. lid. for a meal, he feels it a
sort of dntv lo consume his money's
worth—if not more. Keen cricketers,

A AIiinh uf Ambergris.
The fact tbat a schooner, wbich hud in-
rived at Gloucester, had-picked up off Cape
Sable a mass of ambergris, weighing l'J"i
pounds, has started inquiry as to tht, nutm-o
and market value of the substance. Its use
in Europe and tho United 8*ntefl ie entirely
confined to perfumery, although it formerly
occupied no inconsiderable place in medicine.
In the east it is used in pharmucy und as n
flavoring material in cookery, ils value is
from $ln to $!*5 per ounce, aocoi-ding to
quality. It is a solid, fatty, iiiHiuuiiiable
substance, of dull gray or blackish color, the
shades being variegated like murble, anil
possessing a peculiar sweet, earthy otior.
This substance is formed iu tho intestines
of tho spermaceti whale, being morbidly secreted, and floats on the water. Vessels pick
it up in the Atlantic oceuti, on the a'oasts of
Brazil and Madagascar, on thc i-oast of
Africa, East Indies, Chiuu, Japan, the Ba*
hama Islands and sometimes on the North
American coast. The largest lump ever
heretofore fouud weighed \H2 pounds. The
whales in whicli it has been discovered were
either dead or much wasted, and evidently in
a sickly condition. But it is believed that
ambergris, from tho position iu which it exists and its chemical constitution, is u biliary
concretion unalagous to what is found in
other mammals.—Boston Transcript.

Superstition on the stui;*'.
"There is as much superstition umong actors as there is umong suilors," remarked u
member of the profession to a reporter.
"They are forever on the lookout for signs,
and these ure construed into nil kinds of
meanings. The placing of a chair ou tho
stage in u peculiar ix-sltion will be taken to
mean something iu connection with Mieir success, while the uction of a single iudi vidtial iu
the audience will have a decided effect upon
their future course.
"It is while rehearsing a ueav play that thu
greatest amount of superstition is indulged
iu with actors aud munugcrs.
"One of the most noticeable is the etrect of
tho lines upon tho members of the company,
if a laugh or even a smilo is provoked by the
witticism of the author it is regarded as u
bad omen for the success of the piece. If a
pathetic passago causes a remark regarding
its beauty, the conclusion is at once reached
that the play will no* be a 'go,' anal when the
effect is in the opposite direction tlieir spirits
rise aud tho belief is entertained that all will
bo well with tho play. There aro probably
100 other signs upon which uctors hung the
fate of themselves or the play to bo produced. "—Philadelphia Bulletin.
Interesting;  Poker   Story wltb  an Abrupt End.
They wero sitting ill a hotel corridor, and
an oltl man, who spoke iu un intense but deliberate manner, was telling of a great poker
game. As the story went ou his listeners
drew their chairs closer around the narrator.
Every mau wus leuning forward with an
eager glitter iu his eye. Half smoked cigars
fell unnoticed to the iloor. There was scarcely
a movement in the littlo group.
The old man was evidently a master at
story telling, lie had beeu, too, If one might
judge by his lively description of tbe game
which he was describing, an expert player
himself. He began witb the beginning of the
jackpot, went carefully over the deal, the
draw and the preliminary betting. And
when he got to the lirst bet of the opener
there was a breathless silence around him,
save for his quiet, measured tones, as be told
of the game. Tbe game, as he described it,
had been played in a train and be bad been a
witness of it.
"John," he said, tilting bis chair back a
little and then oauslng it to sway with a
rhythmic motion of his body, "bet ISO.
The man next to him ran his cards over completely aud raised him $30. The next man
saw the raise. John raised $100 again. The
next man again ran his cards over carefully,
placed a crisp $100 note on tbe table, hesitated a moment and then, adding another ona
to it, pushed tbem both iuto the pot without
a word. The third man laid down his cards,
leaving John to bet next. Ue saw the raise
and placed $1,000 beside lt, whistling softly
to himself. His opponent laid down bit
cards and pulled a long pooketbook from his
pooket. He took out a roll of bills end
counted them over very deliberately. Then
ho picked up his cards and run them over
again. His face was pale, but calm. He
said nothlug."
.There wus au intense strulu iu the absorbed
silence of the group now. The man drew a
long breath. Another moved uneasily In
bis chair, but no one said u word.
'The man counted out $1,000," continued
the narrator, "then he counted out another
thousand, and another and another until five
piles lay before him. John looked at him a
moment aud weut down into his pocket. The
hands of both tho players were trembling
slightly, but both looked confldent."
One of the listeners now tapped his foot
Impatiently ou the floor.
"The mail slowly pushed tho flvo rolls te
the center of the tahle," Iio went ou. "John's
eyebrows came together. Ho took his wallet
and placed it besido the bills."
A flutter ran through tho group, followed
by a sualden bush. Tbe narrator stopped in
his story, and bringing his chair down to the
floor, reached for a match. He struck it,
waited for tho sulphur to burn out, and re
lighted his cigar. For a moment he puffed
away silently. "And then)" said one of his
hearers nervously.
"Oh, theu the train stopped at my station
and I bad to get off."—New York Tribune.
Cuuse. of Premature Death.
Most of thoso who dio between25 nual 00,
unless they die by accident, die by some indiscretion. It ls the over inditlgcuco of appetite, or tho neglect of fooal wlien neetled, or
tho overstrain of business, or uxiKisure to
a-hunges of temperature without corresponding change of clothing. Most peoplo of
these ages ure conscious of the error after it
has been mado, or others are conscious of it
for them. Without unduo oaptlousness wo
cau note changed conditions, and atlapt ourselves thereto. Multitudes die prematurely
by reason of an indiscretion whicli might
have been easily avoided, lt is intelligent
caution that saves sickness, and this caution
ought to be lu possessis**. and exercise before
middle life. It is so much easier to prevent
serious sickness than it is to secure recovery
from it. Hence lt is that so many that are
deficient in vigor iu early lifo outlive the
vigorous aud the careless. Necessity com
pels them to study their changing conditions
of health, and so teaches them thu benetlts of
tadaptiveuess to conditions and circunistani'es.

Not a Good Memory.
For some reason, I dou't know why, people
expect to hear sensational testimony whenever I'm put on the stand iu a political case.
But they don't hear it for a very good reason: I am so peculiarly constituted that in a
political campaign I never remember a transaction in which I am concernod for twenty-
four hours afterward. I never write letters,
I always burn those I receive, and I don't
make notes in a memorandum book or diary.

A gentleman In Columbus, Oa., has a

years. It bears a close resemblance to a
broad ax, but does good service yet, and
may cut many a whisker before lt is finally

or used for trimming corns.
An amusing misadventure happened the
other day to a well known artist In Paris.
He had purchased an old helmet in a bric-a-
brac shop, aud when be got home tbe idea
occurred to try It on. It went on easily
enough, but when he wanted to take it off
he found it impossible to do so. Finally he
was forced to go to a neighboring gunsmith's
to have lt removed. His appearance on the
street wearing this mediaeval relic produced
a decided sensation.
"What are tbe four great lakes between
Canada and the Gulf of Mexico!" asked a
Lewistou, Me., mother of her youngest and
only, whose geography she waa conning.
"Water," said the boy. The mother pondered a moment and looked Into the geography again and found herself in error. She
should have asked, "Which are tho four
great lakes!" etc. This question repeated, the
boy answered correctly. It's a smart 7-year-

A False Alabu.—A Chicago correspond
ent dropped in on us the other day for a
brief visit, and after showiug him our Washington baud-press, six varioties of job type
And two bundles ot print paper, we took bim
out for a survey of the town. The news bad
gone abroad that he was a Chicago detective,
and lt was laughable to note the effect upon
our leading citizens. A dozen or more broke
for the sage brush, without stopping for
clean shirts, and so many others cut off tbeir
whiskers or donned false ones that we walked
the whole length of Apache avenue without
meeting a man we could recognize at flrst
glance.
While there is nothing tneau about us, tbls
ls a feature we are going to work about twice
a month on this towu. It will keep tbe boys
unsettled and anxious, and may be the means
of converting some of them from the error of
their ways. It's an awful good feeling to feel
that you are the only man in a town of 8,000
people whose liver don't kick the breath out
of him every time a stranger comes along
and takes a second look at the bridge of your
nose.

and publisher sent for us yesterday to examine his books and figure up bis circulation.
We made the astounding discovery that he
has a bona fide circulation of 103 copies.

all hazards. When we are wrong we let go
and come down. We were wrong In this
case. We come down. The Howling Coyote
and Weekly Wish-Wash will please accept
our humble apology.
Don't Forget It.—In addition to tbe
grocery lu our frout room, which is rapidly
securing the cream of trade, we have established a tin shop in tbe rear of the shanty and
propose to do all sorts of repairing. Later
on we may and a harness shop aud other
needed enterprises. If we build in tbe spring,
as we uow figure ou, we shall put in a marble
shop and furnish gravestones cheaper than
has ever been heard of In Arizona. We may

We were humming along at the rate of
thirty miles an hour ou a train bound Into
Nashville, when I spotted a couple of three
card monte men iu tbe car. They had madr
up to a farmer like chap and had things alt
their own way. One of them tossed the cards
and the other acted as a capper and made a
hit of |20 the flrst thing. This waste egg the
farmer on, and he was willing to be egged.
"Reckon I've got a leetle money that says 1

"She's the one."
"And which is it!"
"This ar" the one,"
"And you bet (80 on itt"
"I do."
The card was turned over, and lol it was
tha ace of hearts and the old man had won.
He pocketed the money and the monte men
retired in disgust. Later on I asked the
thrower how he came to make such a mis-
take.

From Symes A Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread repu.
tation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned foi
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a betler is im-
portcal into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salct
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of thc cxtiaoidinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have oeeairred
unda-t 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 iny 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 thc proj
fession and the public, as we nre of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERA*"E
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnancellor Sir W.

prices charged tor admission are very

i in Thursday morning at 11:30 the
strike was finally settled by the contractors meeting with the ileuianals of the
men. The nine hour system is concealed
lor all contractors' men, and three hours
off on Saturday afternoon will be allowed
the carpenters in the mills. All men employed since the strike began, it was
stipulated, were to be discharged before
the old men went back to work. The
committee rooms have been closed, the
strikers are at work again,and everything
is peaceful as of yore.
The men are to be congratulated upon
the success of their efforts. The strike,
which lias just been ended, is one of thc
few strikes in Canada which have suc-

the demands of tbe men complied with,

Hacked Doit...
Chief Engineer Deasy and Capt. F.
Hinds, of the Victoriu hose team, arrived
here yesterday in order to perfect the arrangements for the much-talked of hose
race between the Victoria and "Vancouver
hose teams. They went to the Mayor's
office, according to agreement, to meet
the Yancouverites, who failed to connect
our American cousins oi the tourist
; persuasion paid lis a visit in force yesterday ou the steamer Corona, anal thoroughly "did" tbe town. I was considerably amused at the easy manner in
I which they took in the sights,
not being in the least bashful uor
afraid of hurting anyone's feelings.
I, who am rather thick-skinned, I suppose, did not mind about thirty of them,
at the time appointed, and after waiting, male and female, standing outside a cer-

The Victoria men returned by the

The steamer Corona arrived yesterday
morning from Alaska witli an excursion
partv numbering ninety-eight.
The excursionists report a very enjoyable trip and line weather, and say the
ellicient manner in which Capt. Carroll
and liis officers carried out tbe programme of tbe excursion deserves great
praise.   Several of the.passengers went; Ilf),.    , th , ff hen about twenty

One of the Vancouver photograph's

very different from what sbe thought
tbey were. Did she think they went
around dressed in a primitive waist-cloth,
nr worse still wearing a fig leaf to protect
them from the almost tropical rays ofthe
summer sun'.' I don't know. Perhaps
some of the officers of tho Corona bad
been describing the natives to her in
glowing terms, or else she may bave
read, "Lost in the woods on the shores
of Vancouver Island" which appears in
line of the Primers. It is only fair that

There was u larger gathering of spectators yesterday afternoon on the Cricket
ground than upon any previous Saturday. It appears probable that as In England, our Nanaimo Cricket ground is to
be the fashionable resort on holidays and
field-days, judging from the number of
ladies who graced the match with their
presence. The opposing elevens were
captained respectively by Messrs. Hawthornthwaite and lung, the players to
represent Nanaimo versus Vancouver in
the match next Friday to bo chosen alter
the game by Mr. Hawthornthwaite. It
will be seen from the appended score
that for Mr. King's side Dr. Eberts and
M. Duffle offered the mosl resistance to
their opponents' bowling, with scores of
9 and 6: A. Potts doing the most execution with the ball. For Mr. Ilawthornth-
wuite's eleven II. Cooper batted in bis
usual plucky style, scoring nineteen;
Hovelaque not out fifteen. Pafford sixteen, Millar eleven, whilst E. Potts and
Dr. Praeger each contributed an useful
eight. Messrs, II. Johnston and llnw-
tliointliwaitp. Shared the bowling and the
wickets. As usual Sykos Thompson's
wlcket-kecping left little to he desired.

ind some others went for a bathe in the
sea near the Indian graveyard. Deceased
was anxious to go lo another place where
the wuter was shallower but 1 said 1 preferred to 8tny where the beach was sandy.
Deceased who could only swim a little
"dog fashion" swam out into the current
of the Nanainio River nnd on returning
said he was getting rather tired and did
not think he could teach the shore. He
cried out to Tom (iordon for help, saying,
"Come and help me Tom, I'm drowning." I was the nearest to the deceased
at the time of the accident, but was
afraid to go to bis assistance ns 1 can not
swim well owing to my leg having recently been broken. The deceased was

To tlie Jury—Nobody went io
slstance when he shouted for help. He
did not seem to be taken with cramps,
It would have been dangerous for any of
us lo have tried to save him. Johnny
Frew, who was on shore, went for a
canoe.
V. Goss, sworn—1 wns about 200 yards
away from where 1 henrd the deceased
call for help and immediately went to hiR
assistance, but he sunk when I was 100
yards from him, but came to the surfnee
again and after a short struggle sank for
the last time. 1 swam around the place
where I had last seen him but could detect no sign of his body. I think it
would have lieen dangerous for the others
to have endeavored to save him; Gilbert
could not owing to his leg having been
broken lately,
Henry Ryan, sworn—Said he knew
deceased, who was a native of Pennsylvania, but had lived in California. When
I heard he was drowned I procured a
drag and some giant powder. I fired
two shots whicli, I think, caused the
body to rise to shallow water. The body
was found by Alex. Durham and a Siwash.
Tlie Jury retired and in a few moments returned with the following verdict: We find the deceased came to his
deatli by accidental drowning, and we
commend Frederick Goss for his untiring efforts to save the deceased.
