MENACE TO  UXITKIl STATES.
San Francisco, May 20.—Two morning
papers have editorials on the despatch
from London, giving the debate in  ihe
House   of Lords  upon  the defenses of
Esquimau, at the southern extremity of
Vancouver Island.   The Chronicle say:—
"We are certainly quite as much interested in the Straits of Juan  De  Fuea as
Great Britain andjCanada cau be, and if a
British fort, at or near Esquimau,  can
command those straits, Puget Sound will
become a close sea in the strictest sense
of the term.   Should we ever have war
with Great Britain, is it our place to sit
quietly   by  and   see  a   foreign   nation
fortify its frontier without taking steps to
meet fortifications   with   fortifications;
and cannon with cannon? If it is necessary for Great Britain to fortify, is it not
equally necessary for lis to do the same
thing?"   The  Call  soys:—"Esquimau
fortifications  are   intended   for   service
against the United States.    They cannot
be used against any other nation, and
they are naturally an invitation to, and
provocation of war.   It is u good tiene
now that we have a cash surplus in the
Treasury, and that there are men in our
great cities, who would  like no bettor
employment than enlisting for a war, to
ask our   ally    and   neighbor,  whether
these works at Ksquimalt are not  really
intended to do us a mischief some day;
and if they are, whether, wise foresight
does not require that we should protest
against tlieir further construction."

FREN0H   GREEK   NEWS.
We received some news yesterday from
French Creek that may be of interest to
our readers.
The run of dog lish is as yet small and
very few are engaged  in their capture
The settlers nre clearing a large qiian
tity of land and crops are looking promising. The farms lying more iu the Interior near the Alberni roail are being
worked considerably and as they mostly
consist of large swamps covered with wild
grass, there will not he much dilliculty
inputting a considerable acreage under
cultivation. The principal drawback
hitherto has been the am.Mini of water
vinti on them, but several large drams
itiiM Men cut and that obstacle lias been
removed.
The farmer* have lately Inst a great
inaiiv pigs, chickens and sheep through
the depredations of two panthers, one
of the iiuiinals is described as very large
and the other is probably a cub, as the
foot prints of the two brutes differ greatly
in size. The settlers know pretty well
where the animals stay during the day,
which is in a large swamp, and intend to-
organize n grand hunting party and rid
the county of the pests. Parties of two
and three have already made some abortive attempts to shoot the animals, but
they aro hard to tree without sufficient
men and dogs.
Deer are rather numerous and don't
spare the tender shoots of wheat and oats.
They are alBO partial to the young buds
nnd branches of fruit trees.
Several of the farmers have lately had
their land surveyed hy T. A. Pope, C. E.
Trout are biting freely in tho streams,
and most of the settlers are enthusiastic
fishermen. We heard a tale of an enormous catch made hy a party of three.
A. Tranfield has caught several lieaver
and as the skins are valuable he no doubt
is doing very well.
The Great Rush.—Owing to the un
mease number of purchasers visiting MR.
Bullock's establishment on Saturday
anxious to take advantage uf his disposal of
ll stock at cost, he and his clerks were untile to attend toa great number of customers.
He regrets that so many went away unserved, and if possible he would advise some
of his friends to shop in the morning when
hey cc.uld be better waited upon.
Iced MttK Shake nt Pimbury's,     *
The regular weekly meeting of tlie City
Council was held lasl night.
Present His Worship Mavor Bate ami
Aldermen Nightingale, Webb, Peek,
Abrams, linker ami Mahrer.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
COMMI XICATIUN.
A letter was received, signed ('has. E.
Pooley, thanking the Mavm ami Aldermen on behalf of Mrs. Robert Dunsmuir
for their letter of sympathy in her late
bereavement.
Letter wns received and Sled,
A reply was read from T. Drake, solicitor, Victoria, in regard to the matter of
tlie pie^e of laud required bv the II. C
Tanning Co. He said that the propertv
in question was not freehold, and the
Corporation could not lease it much less
sell it, The frontage appeared to he
vested in tlie Vancouver Coal Co.
Communication received ami filed.
Aid. Nightingale said Unit Mr. Robins
told him he would deed the property over
to the Corporation to do what they wished witli it There is not as much wate r
on the properly as is shewn on the plan.
The Mayor—-A portion of it is, I believe,
called tidal land.
Aid. AhraniB—I would venture to satin- tide conies within 5 feet.
Aid. Mahrer—We have do right to it,
let the Tanning Co. and Mr. Robins
settle il.
Aid. Baker—There is one portion of
the lot Would help in building Mill Street.
If Mr. Robins gives it to us it will bring
something towards building streets.
Aid. Abrams—All this will onlv cause
delay.
Aid. Mahrer—If we leased the propertv we could only get a paltry sum, say
$5 a month, and we may delay "the company two or three months.
Aid. Nightingale—If we can get the
power to dispose of tlie land, it will give
us a right lo do what we like with the
stone wall. It would cost $000 to grade
that bill. We have no right to give the
property away.
Aid. Baker—Aid. Mahrer has complained considerably about Mill street
with very good reasou too. If we have a
claim on the property we can make a
road. To take that wall down will cost
over $500. As Mr. Robins has offered
to transfer the property to us it
would be better to let it go through our
hands.
Aid. Abrams assured the Council that
there would be no trouble with the company in regard to the street.
Aid. Mahrer—I understood that the
street would not lie meddled with.
The Mayor—The city has rights to he
maintained as well as Individuals. All
business of that kind sTrould be done
through the City Council.
Aid. Abrams—If things go on in this
way it may he six months before everything is settled. Appoint a committee
and let the company appoint one as well.
Mayor — Whatever assurances Mr.
Robins makes the Council,   the Council
will give tu "ie company.
Alii.   Abrams—The   Vancouver
Coul
Company won't lease Ihe foreshore
Aid. Peck—Does the foreshore belong
to the Vancouver Coal Company?
The Mayor—We believe it does.
Aid. Nightingale and Baker were appointed us a coiuinitee to represent
the Council.
A letter was then read from the Secretary of the Board of Trade to discover on
what terms the Board could obtain the
use of the Council Chamber to bold their
meetings.
Aid. Webb moved that the Board he
allowed the us. nf the Chamber forthe
sum oi fl per month.
Aid. Baker thought Ihe price too small.
People would want the Chamber for 50c.
Better charge $2 every sitting.
Aid. Nightingale would sooner give it
them free than take *1. He requested
Aid. Baker to make a motion to let the
Board of Trade have tbe use of the Council Chamber free, with the use of the
gas, for one year.
Motion passed.
A letter was then read from Mayor
Grant and the City Clerk nf Victoria inviting the Corporation of Nanainio to
visit Victoria on the 24th of May, and
enclosing tickets to the ball to be held on
the 26th inst.
The City Clerk wus instructed to thank
thc Corporation of Victoria and say they
were sorry to have to refuse their kind
offer, hut'us Nanaimo had such an attractive programme on that date, thev would
have to stay here. ■

Report received and filed.
Aid. Al.rams wished to know if the
sidewalk on Albert street were to be pro*

Aid. Nightingale said some of thereat-
lents did not wisli u sidewalk. 1 also
spoke to Ruwbottoin nbout Farquhnr 8t,
sidewalk, nml he snid he would take his
fence down when Manson takes down
his. 1 move that the contract stop right
where it is now. If the City Council
wishes to go on with the Albert street
sidewalk, alright, lot tbem do it.
Aid. Abrams—If the residents don't
want it, don't build it.
Aid. Baker—They don't want it on the
right-hand side, anil liefore it can lie laid
on the left side of the street several
stumps, etc., will have to lie extracted.
Aid. Nightingale—I will cost $75 to
$100 to do it.
Aid. Mahrer—It would be well to ascertain if Rowbottoni and Manson occupy
thc road with thoir fences.
Aid. Webb wished them notified to look
into the matter.
Aid. Baker—There are three crossings
wanted also on some of the streets.
Aid. Abrams wished to move that W.
Trounce's salary us niglitwatchiunn be

several of those who had promised to pay
him so much a month hnd failed tu do so.
The Mayor and Aldermen all spoko
Aery highly of Trounce's services and the
motion was passed.
The Mayor said that ii would be necessary to introduce a by-law allowing pet-
sons who thought they were over-asses-
gad to be heard" and decisions given.
Aid. Mahrer—1 have looked over the
Contagious Disease Act and find the by
law  is Incomplete,   I have been blackguarded through the papers and asked to
apologize.   1   will  move for an amend-,
ment giving  the   Health   Officer   morel
power.   I think that some energetic steps
ought to be taken to stamp «•■■ t disease, i
I  thought   it was the duty of the Health \
Officer to quarantine all infected persons.
The by-law at present only states smallpox us ii contagious disease,   therefore!
patients suffering from diphtheria were
nol isolated.    Dr.  Prmger  said   he  had
several  times consulted the Citv Council
on the subject.
Aid. Aliriiins—Ab a member of tbe
Sanitary Committee, he has never spoken
to me.
Aid. Webb—Nor to me.
The Maym said that Dr. l'neger hud
spoken to Iii nt on the subject [bough a
long time ago.
Aid. Mahrer—I am askeil to apologize
and I won't. I was averse to his not receiving pav for his services, from the
lirst.
Aid. Nightingale understood thut in
any case of Dr. Pricger being specially
called he would semi iu his bill.
Aid. Webb—lie has been called out
several times this vear ami has not sent
in a bill.
Aid. Mahrer—Newcastle townsite is
aliout to be fenced, and Departure Bay
will be cut off from communication wltb
Nanaimo unless a gang of men is sent at
once to grade a fresh road.
Aid. Nightingale though! the work
would suit the chaingang, He afterwards
moved that tenders be culled for the
work. His friend Roxy, of the S. A.,
would be a tenderer. " Let us call tho
street Stewart street. Constable Stewart
has travelled it often enough—Motion
passed.
The   Mayor   said  there   would   be  a
special  meeting to night (Tuesday) at
seven o'clock to consider the Assessment,
business.
The Council then adjourned.

HEALTHFUL SLEEP.
Lie With Tour Head to ths West and
Feet to the East.
American Analyst.
The sleep-with-your-head-to-the-north
idea had quite a run a few years ago, and
there are still a great many people who,
perhaps, rather from force of habit than
otherwise, range their beds so that thev
stand in line with the parallels of longitude, and sleep with their " feet to the
equator." or as near as they can get to it.
Habits are strong in such a matter. But
the editor of a Western uewspaperrelntes
that be was greatly troubled with sleeplessness and headache at night. Finally
he bethought himself that it always made
him ill when he travelled on the railroad
if he rode backwards, or if he lay in a
sleeping-car berth Wltb his head to the
engiue; and that, on the other hand, if
he sat facing the engine, or slept in bis
berth with his feet to the engine, he slept
well.   The reflection   led hiui tojanit!
mo , .V).,....... ,., sae cut,,  nWii,  wok n
is a sort of great railroad car, whirling
along from west to east at the rate ol
about 1,000 miles an hour.
He proceeded to arrange his bed so
that when he lay upon it, his head was to
the west und his feet to the east, and
after that he hail no more restlessness or
headache, but slept profoundly and
sweetly, with his "feet to the engine."
He commends his discovery to all sleepless and nervous people, and does not
doubt that he has hit upon a hit of knowledge whicli will prove infinitely valuable
to human kind. But what about Unpeople who would just as lief ride backwards on ruilroad trains, nnd who sleep
better with their heads to the engines of
trains and the bows of vessels?
A friend once strongly advised us always to sleep when travelling, with our
head to the engine or the bow, and gave
sonic very plausible reasons for his philosophy. "The movement of a train," he
said, "tends to force your blood in thc
opposite direction from' the way the train
is going, that is to say, being liquid and
under the influence In Bomedegree of the
forces of gravitation ami inertia, the
blood fs not carried forward so fast as the
solid parts of the body, and tends to
collect in the end which is for the time
being, toward the rear.J Now, il" yonr feet
are toward the engine, the blood will
collect in your head and give you unpleasant dreams nnd sleeplessness. Have
the blood in your feet, on the other
band, and you will sleep nil the better
for having it there." "But," we asked,
"does not your being ou a cur constitute,
us it were, a new center of motion, and
every part of the body being carried along
us fast as any other part, prevent any
collecting of the blood in the extremity
which is in the 'aft?' " "The fact that
you aro on the train," replied tlie theorist, "does not prevent the force of
gravitation irom winking independently
of the train, and the principle of inertia
certainly carries the blood toward your
bead every time the train starts. Try it
wilh u spirit   level  and you will sec the
bubble hug the aftermost end of the
tube."

more persons die from diseases of the Throat

that everyone, without except.-*-,, receives
vast numtiers of Tutwrcle Germs into thc
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 thc throat and if allowed to con*

producing Consumption and to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause

THE
DBONE"    OF
SOCIETY.
COLONIAL
We are indebted to ii writer in a paper
published in Nagasaki for the text of the
present article.   Oddly enough the "far
East," where life is lived under such different conditions from Uiat which we
know in British Columbia, appears just
at present to be afflicted with aconiplaint
which has long been acknowledged an
unmitigated evil in each one oi the British Colonies in which il has been our lot
to live. The evil to which we have reference, is a peculiar and remarkable type
of humanity, which residents cannot
have failed to notice. The Individual
who represents this type, and who has
acquired the unenviable name of 'loafer,"
is neither exactly a knave or it tool, although it is quite true that the elements
of knavery and folly, are Inherent in bis
nature. Loulers arc either professional
or accidental, and are of all stations of
life. The broken-down gentlemen loafer
is perhapB the most contemptible—
though at the same time the most pitiable—specimen of his class. lie may be
described as a parasitical dependent who
owing to bis indolence, and often dissipated habits, has lost his position, and
who then quietly attaches himself to
some confiding friend into whose ears he
pourBout his imaginary ills. In a country such aB ours where there is—with Very
few exceptions—no leisured class, but
where one and all must work for their
living—there can be naturally but slight
Bympathy for such. His (the loafers)
chief grievances, are ustiully adverse
luck, nnd the miserable condition of the
particular country in whicli he happens
to reside ut the time. Men such as these,
do new countries incalculable harm in the
initial stages of their development—
partly by writing letters home, partly by
what they say to newcomers, as to the
prospectB ahead of them. Seldom is tin-
loafer colonial born, for some occult reason which we admit our inability to understand. He has but one object
in life, it is to lind some one to
administer to bis animal wants. As a
rule, he is easy and compliant In disposition, pleasant us to his address, nnd fre-
tion. Such is the type whicli we have
met wherever Englishmen congregate
abroad. Frequently we have known
cases where the unfortunate friend to
whom the "loafer" links himself—being
somewhat characterless—really writhes
under the agony inflicted on him, though
he patiently lieurs with tlie bore, i ml
lives in daily hope that something will
happen to break his fetters. To us we
confess, it seems that people who foster
these worthless drones are culpable in
the highest degree, for not only are they
offering a premium to indolence and vice,
but they are assisting to swell the ranks
of a most pernicious class of people. The
habitual 'loafer' is a detestalde character;
the aceioViilaf, a very pitiable one. It is
true that in the case of the latter, the re-
Bult of untoward circumstances may
have caused him to cease to become a
working bee, but :n nine cases out of
every ten there is no excuse for loafing,
especially in these more favored countries
where population is not congested as in
Europe, and the East, nnd where land is
not entirely in the bands of a tow monopolists. Were matters strictly investigated,
we should generally discover that every
stone has not been unturned in the
search for employment, and it is on this
account that we endeavor to the best of
our ability to check what—if Hritish
Columbia progresses, us have done other
of Great Britain's Colonies—bills fair to
become a growing evil.

who as yesterday's Colonist very rightlj
says, "attack private or pnl.li- men of

writer's facts and arguments that tlie

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
A Kimi of rice which is grown in dry
land, instead of being sown in, or transplanted to, fields covered with water, is,
we learn, being largely cultivated in
Hawniia and China, and is said to yield
very good crops of a quality not at. all
ferior to that grown in liquid mud. This
fact though its importance may not be
immediately apparent to each of our
readers, yet bears directly upon the food
supply of the world, if rice can be cultivated in similar fashion to wheat,
doubtless a much larger area of land will
become available for its production, with
the natural   sequence—when   coupled
Sth cheap labor—of a reduction In price.
ce has—for probably three thousand
years—been the chief food staple of mankind. It continues to be ho to-ilny. The
number of those of whose diet rice forms
the piece de resistance, largely exceeds
that of the bread-eatera of the world.
The cultivation of this dry land rice, has
already been attended with success in
Senegal, and threatens to supersede the
ordinary mode of paddy culture. Doubt-
leSB the Government of India which is
always laudably anxious concerning tlie
welfare of that Empire, will turn its
attention to practical experiments of tlie
kind, and if the experiments turn out a
success, then at last the first step will
have been made (and not a short one
either) towards preventing the fearful
famines which occur periodically both in
India, and China.
We have long held the opinion that
the man or woman who hud DO sense of
humor, missed quite hall the enjoyment
f life. Not infrequently we come across
persons well-educated, and quick enough
in all other respects at what is-on ibis
continent—known as "catching on"—yet
who take everything seriously; persons
who see nothing at whicli to smile In
Swift's superb satire ef Oulliver's Travels,
or Cervnnte's Inimitable   Don  Quixote.
We are inclined to tl pinion that the
sense of humor is not strongly developed
among the English, and Scotch. Trans-
Atlantic wit lias carved a line ior itself,
and has become as distinctly "American,"
as have the physical appearance, and
general idiosyncrasies of our neighbors.
The Irish, certainly are both credited
with, and deserve, an innate fund of this
Invaluable quality. We remember once
to have enjoyed a hearty laugh over an
Irishman's repartee, which was we venture to think, quite as good as many
which go the round of our papers. A
doctor practising in Manchester, addressed rather brusquely an Irish artisan
wbo was waiting in his hall—"Hallo, you j
fellow, do you Want me?" The answer
was neat—"No yer honm-r, 1 am wailing
for H gentleman ' "
Tin: Empire says:—ft is the impression
in well Informed circles that the maximum size of ocean vessels has almost
been reached.   The difficulty in the way
of water a vessel can carry Into port.
Were lighters used, then- would practically be no limit to the size of vessels
adapted to the open ocean, and vessels
of the carrying capacity of the Greal
Eastern, might ultimately be regarded as
diminutive pieces of naval architecture.
The spi-i'.l of veBSels, as of horses, also
seems to be closely approaching its limit.
The gains of recent years have been Increased by minutes, and not by hours, or
even days as in former years. The lasl.
record, that of the City of Paris, however,
beat the next record, that of the Etruria,
by nearly three hours, and for the lirsl
time in the history of transatlantic vov-
iges got within the six day limit, the
ideal at. which all the most enterprising
shipbuilders bave been aiming.
Bv telegram we learn to-night thai the
Anglo-Japan Steamship Company have
decided to shortly pit! on a line of steamers, to run between Valparaiso, ami British Columbia, connecting with the Canadian Pacific Railway. The importance
of this news can scarcely be over-estimated. Our report says this decision
has been arrived at, owing to tho anxiety
ofthe company to gain faBter, and cheaper
transportation [nelHties. No details
aro as yi-t In hand, bul il is easy to see
tbe material gain to Hritish Columbia
generally, when the Chili, Peruvian, and
Central American trade comes to Vancouver, for transportation over the
Canadian Pacific, Doubtless Nanainio
will benefit both directly and indirectly
aH there will of course be a new market
for our coal, in addition to other advantages.

aid that It Bpeedily found its way into
Tun Tory Lord High Chancellor of
England advocates a bill low before llio
House of Lords, >i.. I aims In extinguish
the last vestige of primogeniture in
England. As the law now stands in
England, the landed property of a man
dying intestate and without children, but
with nephews, goes to his oldest nephew,
Subject to his widow's right of dower;
that is, a life interest in one-third of the
estate. On the death of the widow, her
third of the cslale reverts to lhc heir.
The bill of llu- Lord Chancellor of England, should it become a law, would put
an end to the creation of estates in tail,
and transform existing fees in tail into
fees simple, and moreover, would invest
tlie personal representatives of a deceased
person with the same powers in regard
to real estate as they now possess with
respect to personal property.
Tub West Indian cricketers who toin-
ed in Canada and the Slates in 18Hli, have
written to several Canadian gentlemen
asking tbem to organize un eleven to tour
through the Indies next winter. Such
an excursion would be a delightful break
in the monotony of a Canadian winter.
The Philadelphions who went down last
winter enjoyed themselves very much,
although they made the mistake of taking
a comparatively weak eleven with them.
Any Ontariau eleven Which may go
down should be fairly strong. Some of
the West Indians played rattling good
Cricket, notably Burke, Far inharson and
Lees.

"Why, yes. I didn't intend to, but the sub

"Very likely.   I was In great haste."
"Signed 'Constant Reader,' I supposo?"
"Yos, sir, I have taken your valuable paper

BineflU of Co-Oporatlve Banking.
Speaking of the benefits of the co-operative
bank system, one who ls familiar with Its
workings and results sayst "Tho savings of
the mechanic and laboring man are necessarily limited, aud, tn tho ordinary way of
laying by a littlo now and then, they may get
discouraged on account of tho length of time
necessary to accumulate sufficient to accomplish their desiros, and aro very likely to give
up In despair when year after year passes and
thoy still see the object for off. But with the
assistance rendered by the union of Individuals exactly In the same condition of life
with himself, he can command, in the beginning of practical life, tho means which,
without this union, would require years of
toll and self denial; and then he would only
arrive at tho Ideal of his mind when
bis capacity for Its enjoyment would
bave passed the meridian, and his pathway,
in consequence of years of toil, Is necessarily
downward Here ho begins at the end, as it
were, and secures tho benefits of years of
saving before he has nuido any accumulation; and tn liquidating bis engagements
with the association only returns thereto
what he would havo to pay a landlord for
rental, while feeling that only for a short
time is this necessary, and then his obligations are ended, renders ita comparatively
easy task; for he ls working to tho ond ho
wishes to attain, and there is positive, mc?#l
certainty that be will and can reach it How
much better, then, for every man who is
within reach of thoso great and good institutions to connect himself therewith and secure
his own Indopendonco, and thus feel con*
scious that his energies have not beon ox-
ponded in producing an Income for the sup
port of another to tho exclusion of bis own
person and family."—Boston Herald.

It was held In Antrim, N. II., In 1777. The

A Young American.
A good way to learn to love any country Is
to be born In It At any rate, children born
in America, no matter what their foreign
parentage, are usually decided little Amcri
cans. They soon get "digested Into" American life as Wendell Phillips used to phrase It
—which is the best possible thing for all
parties concerned.
The editor of Our Youth says he was one
day seated In the barber's chair, while the
knight of the scissors was waving his weapons over his head, when a little boy came
into the room.
Tbe barber spoke to the lad In German;
the boy answered in English, whereupon tbe
said, "I oaf to lick that little poy to make

They accept Invitations from mere boys to

ElTorts, i ills* and Correct, Co Make tbo
Skin Beautiful Foolish Practice* That
Do More Harm Than Good—Clew, Soft
Wai•■«  the Hest of All.
Of all tho gifts that go to tlio making up of
beauty, nothing catches the eye so distinctively and instantaneously as tlieclear rod and
whito tints that render the most ordinary
face an attractive ono. The lack of at least a
good complexion dims all other beauties, and
with a coarse oi* dingy skin Llio most perfect
Grecian profile excites po admiration.
Therefore* It Is tbat from tho beginning of
history women have resorted to all sorts of
devises Tor Improving thoir complexions, from
the pleasant und luxurious milk bath to tho
repulsive application <>f raw vuu), and the discomfort of nia*kn and poultices, Many of
theso devices sound anything but cleanly; yet
tho end Lo be attained was deemed worthy of
any Inconvonioneoor HUlfoiing.
Tho uonstant and persevering uso of water
only, hud LIjcso ancient dunies but known it,
would have effected tlio desired transformation far moro thoroughly. hut n fixed article
of belief with tbem in securing a good com
plexion was to ulisiaiu from washing tho fnce
This idea Is said by a keen writer to bavo bad
noma grains of sense in it, as, whon the dogma
prevailed, bathing the body was not practised
to any extent, and had tho face alono been
favored with ablutions tho unclogged pores
would speedily havo brought to the surface
tho impurities that should bavo escaped
through tho numerousoutlets kept in work
ing order by Llio daily bath.
just a mttlk soap,
Th id error prevailed a long timo ago; but
even now a traditional woman, somebody's
grandmother or great grandmother, who
must havo bad something folino in ber na
ture, Is brought to tho front with her bit of
flannel, which she nover oven dampened,
merely polishing off her pretty faco with it
overy morning; and bocauseof this habit—
we say in spite of it—sho had a complexion
of lilies and roses!
tt is quite possihlo to go to tho other extreme, and utterly rum tho skin with soap
und water. A handsome brunette declared
tiiatsbe owed hor rich clear coloring ond
satin texturo to a liberal uso of common
brown soap; but as this soap is tho coarsest
and strongest of alkali preparations, nuturt
had probably been extra generous In this
case, and given a complexion that remained
beautiful in 6pito of tho most ignorant attempts to spoil it Twice a week Is often
enough for the use of soap, which should U«
of the purest and most delicate kind; and
just before retiring is tho best timo to apply it.
A lndy who retained her line, fresh com-
ploxiou as long ossho lived, which was sum-5
years over 70, always washed hor face at
night with very warm water, using white
Castile soap once or twice a week. Her bunds
did tho work of a wash rag and the soap wus
rinsed off with a soft sponge. Tho complexion
6hould never bo exposed to tho outside, air
nor to tho fire within an hour after washing,
and tho samu tiruo should elnpso after n walk
or drive before applying water to tho face.
It should nt all times bo protected from wind
and sun by a veil, tho thicker tho better, and
green ami gray aro tho best colors to uso, as
bluo draws tho sun and causes freckles,
Bleeping in a mask can scarcely ho called a
comfortublo proceeding, but it U said to be a
marvelous whltenerof tho complexion, and
two or threo hundred years ago it was in
common uso among tho French court ladles,
Tho fashion has beon rovived in tho ''cosmetic
masks" so often advertised, and used with
very powerful applications. But soft water
and a closely fitted faco covering of quilted
cotton or chamois skin aro moro efficacious
than theso elaborate and oxpensivo applf
auces, and thoy are cortainly harmless.
EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL TREATMENTS.
A clear, fresh complexion gives a look of
cleanliness to tho person possessing it, and
the practice of cleanliness will best accomplish this result, as thero is no bcautiflef
equal to tho daily tepid bath. But any water
will not do, and hard water is almost worse
than none. If not naturally soft, it should
bo inndo so with ammonia or borax. Thut
wonderful old lady, Diana of Poitiers, who
persisted In being beautiful at such an unreasonable age, Is said to bavo used no cosmetic but a daily bath of rain water. This
is a wonderful preserver and freshener of tho
complexion, but at tho present day it is a
somewhat inaccessible remedy. A handful
of bran to a basin of water has a very cleansing and softening effect, and oatmeal is
equally good.
Tho ancient Egyptian women of the higher
class, whoso complexions wero of roso leaf
texturo and coloring, bathed uot only daily,
but almost hourly, nnd never wore their linen
a second time without washing. As frequent
a change of uuderclothing as possiblo ls a
decided beautifler of tho complexion, and this
luxury, once indulged in, is not easily given
up. Diluted lotos water was tho favorite
bath in the land of the pyramids, but our
own Florida and roso waters aro considered
even better.
A salt bath, too, is excellent; and it is not
necessary to go to tho sea shore for it, as a
few cents' worth of rock salt will supply the
luxury for a month. A good sized lump dissolved In a basin of water is nil that is needed
for a single application. Besides invigorating
the system, this bath is said to freshen the
complexion and restoro the appearance of
youthfillness. One certainly "feels good''
after It
Many simple purifiers, greatly hi vogue two
generations ago, when cosmetics were considered ''sinful," have lost none of their active
virtues. Among theso old fashioned remedies
a tablespoonful of sulphur, with as much
molasses as is needed to mix it, taken every
other morning for a week, and then, with an
Interval of three days, resumed again for an*
othor week, has quite a magical elToct on a
muddy or eruptive skin. Cream of tartar is
also good; milk, If it .does not disagree with
the stomach, is a veryH>eautifying beverage;
and grape juice, pure and simple, gives the
lovollost of tints, because It makes tho purest
blood.
A glass of hot water, as near the boiling
point as can be tolerated, taken about an horn*
before each meal, helps greatly to keep tlie
complexion tn order; and half a lemon may
be added If desired, but no sugar. Powdered
charcoal U often efficacious. A teospoonful
mixed with water should bo taken three
nights In succession, mid then followed by
citrate of magnesia to remove it from tho
Bystem.
Prevention, however, Is always better than
cure; mid a proper or improper diot is sure U>
tell upon the complexion.—-Harper's Bazar

Telegraphing Cheaper Than Writing.
There has lately been Invented a new system of synchronism which, it is claimed, will
make it cheaper to telegraph messages than
to mail them. Dr. J. Harris Rogers, of
Washington, D. C, Is the inventor, and he
claims that the world will be almost revolu
lionized by his discovery. The new system,
Mr. Hogerssays, reduces the English alphabet
to ten elementary characters. Tho messages
are prepared by means of a machine resem
tiling a typewriter and manipulated In the
same manner. With the uso of ten keys, one
for each character, any desirable message can
be written. A test of tho new apparatus was
held in New York, and a message of seventy'
six words sent over In twenty-five, seconds
aud printed upon a tape In plain Roman characters. The inventor says that he can by this
system make one wire do the work that ten
do now by tbe system In vogue.--Frank Leslie's Newspaper.
Toys for Great Britain.
Great Britain gets about £600,000 worth of
foreign toys every year. Now, as it Is reckoned that there are rather more than 16,000,
000 of children In the United Kingdom
15 years old and under, it follows that the
outlay for foreign toys is not much more
than 0 ponce per child. Most of these articles
come from Germany, which sends to British
dealers toys of the value of £320,000 a year.
Holland Is second, with £125,000 worth,
France follows with £90,000 worth, while
Belgium is a fairly good fourth with £70,000
worth. Considering how clever tbe Americans are, it is singular that the United States
supply only £8,000 worth of these joys of the
children's heart Yankee inventors do not

Americans and Money.
Tho American ls constantly accused by
Europeans of worshiping tho "almighty dollar," and great was my curiosity to judge, for
ruyself of the justice of this charge. Aftor
calm observation of tho ways of men in
America, I camo to tho conclusion that the
dollar was certainly not only the unit of the
monetary Bystem, but that It was also the
unit of the metrical system. However, I
soon saw that, if tho dollar was coveted and
held in great respect, it was not so much for
itself as for tbe luxury It was tbe key to; In
other words, that avarice was a vice almost
unknown In tha land. There Is a lavishnees
in tho American's way of expending his
money that redeems his trick of taking off
his hat to it whenever be sees it—Max

Photographing the Sky.
Professor William H. Pickering has succeeded In detecting a number of new nebula?
by means of photography. The region sur

author concludes that, by photographing the
entire sky, four or fivo thousand such objects
may be discovered. Only In case the large
nebula of Orion should prove to embrace all
tho new nebula? In Its limits, this proportio
would not hold good. The experiments show,
however, that tho method ie well adapted to

Don't Like the Plan.
The Medico-Legal society has now made Its
report as to tbo method that should be adopted for electric execution, and the would be
murderer can now acquaint himself as to the
details of the manner in which he will be disposed of If he should receive a sentence of
capital punishment We must frankly admit that the plan does not commend itself to
our notions of decency or propriety. An
electrical execution will, perhaps, be less
sloppy than one by guillotine or by blowing
from guns, but it will not be less ghastly in
Ita attendant circumstances. — Electrical

"Modern conveniences," in case of accident,

illustrates it—or at least it shows that people
who wado in rubber pantaloons must keep

minister who is very fond of trout fishing:
A friend made him a present of rubber
trousers, attached to which were heavy boots,
the wholo arrangement forming ono piece.
He waded in tlio streams and fished, and
guyed tho other fishermen who didn't own
gum trousers, and hud lots of sport.
At night, when they came in tired und
hungry, the dominio would be nice and dry,
while tho other fellows would bo more or less
wot, according to their mishaps, and, i -f
course, would bo chaffed by tho minister.
One morning tboy wero ull standing on tho
bank, watching him wading in deep watt r,
and envying bim, when all of a sudden lie
stepped on a slippery stone, his feet went up,
and he wont in over head.
They fished him out, and found ho weighed
about a ton, the water having filled up hi-
boots and trousers to the waist. The funiiv
part of it was that they couldn't pull oil- tin
Combined bouts and trousers, and so they had
to stand liim ou his bead against d tree until

"LITTLE HORACE" HOVAN  AND HI8
NUMEROUS  ROBBERIES.
A Mother In the Play.
Borne queer mistakes happen to actresses,
due to tbo muny roles thoy enact upon tlie
stage. Recently Miss Kathryn Kidder, who
Is playing tho part of mother to Littlo Lord
Fauntleroy at the Broadway theatre, attended a reception. Tho hostess introduced
ber to a lady, with this remark: "She is tbo
mother of Little Lord Fauntleroy." Some
bow the lady interpreted the remark literally and began to question Miss Kidder about
the age of ber little son and when sho permitted him to go on thu stage. It was an
embarrassing moment, whon the young no
tress explained that sho was only tlie
mother in the play and not in real
life. Miss Kidder is young and hasark-h
father, who ls willing to star her any I inn-
she desires. She told a reporter tbat sho pre
ferred to work patiently and becomo a star
in the legitimate course of her career rather
than start out prematurely and run the risk
of not making a financial success. As she wus
only 80 years old, she averred that sho could
wait Miss Kidder began hor stage career
when she was only 10 years old, and mado n
success with Mayo in "Nordeck"and in Oil
lotto's "Held by the Enemy." She is not ut
all superstitious, but yet one season sho pus
sessed a peacock fan which the manager do
clarod brought bad luck to the door receipts.
One night Miss Kidder deliberately laid the
peacock fan in the mlddlo of the street and
left it there. Business improved from that
hour.—New York Mail and Express.
Old Circus Tricks.
Now that I am out of the circus line I do
not mind telling you one of the secrets of the
business. It is one of tbe cutest tricks in the
profession of a ticket seller. While wo were
down south and In small towns whore the
people were unsophisticated, we would adver-
tise our big elephant, our dons of lions, tigers,
bears and other animals, when wo only had
horses and mules. That was years ago, how
ever, and the peopla now have to seo all the
animals In the street before thoy patronize
the show. One fake which every one in the
show was "on to" was the red ticket. A mnn
with a young lady would walk boldly up to
the ticket stand, and to Impress his lady
companion would pull out a roll of money
The ticket seller would see it, snd after returning the wrong change and ticket, would
put one of these red slips into the man's hatband, saying, at the same time, that it would

Browning's Courtship.
It Is rather startling to see a journal in tlie
modern Athens gravely announce that
"Browning wrote 'Lady Geraldlne's Court.
ship' in two consecutive hours." As it wns
written by Elizabeth Barrett some years lie
fore she become Mra Browning it is not qui:.-
clear how it should be ascribed to her bus
band. It wss, moreover, written by Miss
Barrett In twelve hours, which, though six
times the "two hours" of our Boston contemporary, was so swift tbat its production
will always be recorded among the excoji-
tional literary achievements. In this poem
(written by Miss Barrett before she had ever
seen her future husband; she alludes toa book
of poems he bad just published under tbe title
of "Bells and Fromegranates," in a line thai
ruiii!
Or from Browning some pomegranate, which, if
cut down In the middle,
Shows a heart within, blood tinctured, of a veined
humanity.
It Is related that the first meeting between
Miss Barrett and Mr. Browning was brought
about by his calling to thank hor for thlsallu
sion to his poems.—Boston Traveler.

Brain Weight of Boys and Girls.
In the final result of tho comparison of tho
two sexes tn the human race, anatomienl re
searches will form an Important factor
Many anatomists bavo recognised this fact,
and have instituted comparisons between t lie
sexesfrom various points of view. M. Gustnvu
Io Bon reviews the work of M. Mauouvi-ler
and that of M. Budin, both of whom aver
that "sex has no Influence on brain weight
With them the influence of sex Is nothing
more than the influence of height; and if the
females, as a whole, exceed tho males in brain
weight, It is simply becauso the weight of thc
body in the females b much below that of tho
males." M. lo Bon puts tho theory of his adversaries to the tost in a very ingenious manner by comparing the brains of males and
females having about tho saiuo weight By
this investigation it is shown that hi tbo great
majority of cases the malo children surpass
tho females of the same weight in their cranial
circumference. At the somo ago, hoight, and
weight of body, the female brain ls notably
smaller than that of the male. —Herald of

An Affable, ili uUcinanly Felon, Who Would
Not Harm a Mouse—Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Stolen From Ranks.
Why Ho Cannot Reform.       '
Two genteelly dressed men walked Into the
.People's Savings and Deposit bank, in Denver,
Colo. It was shortly after the noon hour,
and most of tho officials were at dinner. Only
tho cashier remained, and ho approached the
wicket window to converse with one of the
callers, who wished to mako arrangements to
become a depositor.
Suddenly a noise in tbe rear of the bank
caught tho cashier's ear. He turned to see tho
other stranger at the door of the big open
vault. Quick us a flash the official ran to the
safe, seizing, as ho passed the counter, a revolver.
Throwing tho cocked weapon Into tho face
of the robber, ho mode him put up his hands.
The prisoner quietly submitted to arrest,
while hts companion hastily left by tbo street
door.
Whoii turned over to tho police the man
pleaded that it was his first offense and begged
for morcy. His name was James Metz, and
bo was n merchant, broken down by reverses
and trouble, who fell when confronted with
tbe opportunity to rob the bank. His address
and appearanco seemed to confirm his story,
A dark, heavy mustache mid full beard nearly
covered his thin, sallow face. Ho was rather
small and Blender of stature. One feature of
bis attire, however, deepened tho suspicions
of the police. He woro heavy felt shoes, but
thou he urged that he was a consumptive,
and thoy were to protect bis feet from dampness.
IT WAS "UTTLE HORACE."
Four days later Robert and William Piuk-
ertou, the celebrated detectives, happened to
stop over in Denver. Tho authorities had as
yet beon baffled in discovering the Identity of
"Mr, Alotz," mid decided to call on those
chiefs of thief takers.
"Littlo Horace I" exclaimed Bob Pmkerton
asfioon us bo clapped his eyes on the prisoner.
Metz wus silent for a moment, and then
frankly, admitted he was none other than
Horace Hovon, one of the most celebrated
and successful bank sneaks the world ever
know.
Whon reminded of his arrest by Mr. Pinker-
ton for thorobbery of the Middletown (Conn.)
bank In 1879, out of which ho secured $100,*
000 in bonds, Little Horace admitted that
such was the fact.
Talking with Detective Pinkerton, Hovan
gave a brief sketch of his career, and it is certainly a most interesting account of the life
of a criminal.
Littlo Horace has been associated with tho
best bank sneaks in tbe country, and his lines
have frequently thrown him with other noted
crooks whoso specialties difFored from his. In
appearanco ho is very gentlemanly looking,
of slender build and of genteel appearance
and dress. He is tho last mun whom any one
would suspect of being a dangerous criminal
He is possessed of tho greatest nerve of any
man In tho world, and, up to eight or ten
years ago, was most successful Unlike most
professional criminals, ho Is very steady la
his habits; outside of associating with them in
his profession ho nover associates with them,
nor resorts to places frequented by criminals.
Although iio has boon engaged for u number
of years as a professional criminal, he is very
little known to polico officials. Ho is domestic
in his habits, always selects a quiet residence,
and stops around homo. Ho is in no way a
desperate criminal, and when cornered he
will endeavor to sneak or run away. Ho
has never been known to carry weapons of
any kind, and ho not only abhors such things,
but will even refuse to work with any one
whom ho thinks would attempt to do any one
an injury. In polico circles this is considered
ono of tho best traits of his character. He
never allows any one to visit himself or his
family, and never lots any one know where
he Uvea
ONCE A THIEF ALWAYS A THIEF.
In 1870, in company with a man who lm>
since reformed, and whols now living hon
estly, and Big Ed Rice, Littlo Horace stole
$20,000 from a Halifax (N. S.) bank. Hovan
and tho man before mentioned wore arrested,
but Rice got away with the money. Both
men wero released, as the money was returned to the bank. In 1878 Hovan was convicted for a sneak job in Pittsburg and sentenced to two years and eleven months in tho
Western penitentiary at Allegheny City. He
got away, and Robert Pinkorton arrested
him shortly afterward for the robbery of u
vault of tho Middletown (Conn.) bank, where
hosecurod over $100,000 in government, stato
antl county bonds. Tho bonds wore returned
and ho was released. In 1881 he was arrested
in Philadelphia with Frank Buck for the larceny of $ 10,050 iu securities from a broker's
safe in thut city. He was convicted of burglary and sentenced to three years in tho
Eastern penitentiary. He was pardoned out
hi 1883 on condition that he would go to
Washington and testify against somo officials
who wero on trial. Ho agreed to do so on
condition that an old caso against him in
Charleston, 8. C, should bo settled, and tho
authorities agreed to his terms. He gave hi.s
testimony, which was uot credited by the
jury, and in 1884 ho was discharged, A
mouth after his releaso hu and Buck Taylor
were arrested in Boston, but as nothing could
bo proved against him ho was simply ordered
out of the city.
In the fall of 1885 ho was detected in abstracting a package of bank notes from a
sufo tn an English banker's office and was
sentenced to three years' imprisonment.
Alter he had servod bis timo abroad bo returned to this couutry via Cunadu, and camo
to Chicago aud livod for a while at the Tro
;mint house. Ho thou left and went west by
wav of Kansas City.
Tho crook then summarized bis career as he
chatted with tho detective: "Why don't you
reform, as I once advised youf' asked tho de
tectivo.
"I would only be too willing to do so if any
one would givo mo employment thnt my
health would stand, but whero could a man
like mo got work? Vou onco advised me to
make an honest living and I determined to
accept your advice. I went toy* city to settle
down and get employiuout A detective came
along, identified me and Informed tho police.
Although my family offered a bond for my
good behavior, tbey went afraid to lot me live
thero. If they had let me alone I'd been an
honest man today. I had a family to support
and had to do something. The detectives
hunted mo down so that I could get no employment There's nothing in a criminal's
career but misery for himself and family. I
know that better than any one. No matter
what ho gets, ho is a pauper in the end. It is
from one prison to another; no sooner out
than back again. I know not a single man of
my associates, all of whom bave handled
thousands, that is in a position of comfort today. If I could get honest employment I
would be only too glad to take it My health
Is broken down from imprisonment, and I
havo a cough that means death."—Ciucuinati

Sir:— We embrace this opportunity of con-
gratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J,
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a Iwtter is imported Into the country, and we shall l»e
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. Thc other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
wc fancy their sojurn there will be hut
evanescent. We could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary 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 occurred
und*.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 %ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Hrownc's, from a turn
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj
fession and thc public, as wc are ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE

and, in the first impulse of then' sorrow
at his diiath offered to build a Grant
monument at a cost of hall a million
dollars. The family yielded to their
appearand the people acquiesced in their
decision. But the universal wish, outside
of New York, was that the city of Washington should be chosen for the interment and for the monument, and the
total failure of the New Yorkers to fulfill
their promise is a proof that Ihe people
were right. The place where General
Grant's remains lie, is bard to reach, and
the tomb is a shabby one. The half-
million monument will never be erected,
and the Draper thing to do is to remove
the honored remains to the national

What might bave been a serious accident occurred on Sunday afternoon. As
Dr. and Mrs. Prieger attempted to drive
up the incline leading Irom their stable-
yard ont into Bastion street, one ofthe
traces broke, followed immediately by its
fellow; the rest of the harness which attaches horse to buggy, at once collapsed
out of svmpathy, or the unusual strain.
The result may better be imagined than
described. Thc horse walked quietly
forward, the buggy ran quickly backwards. The occupants fortunately retained both nerve and presence of mind.
The consequence was that no harm followed. The situation was not without
its humorous side, especially to the looker-on.

■ Two youngsters engaged iii a fistic encounter near the Occidental Hotel yesterday afternoon, much to the delight of several "big boys" who egged them on. The
fight lasted fully half an hour wben the
irate mother of one of the youngsters bore
down down upon the party causing the
onlookers to flee from her wrath. She
grabbed her son and administered a
couple of blows to the other youth. She
would make a good policeman if one may
judge by the way the crowd scattered on
her appearance.

Why Bid He Not mention It.
A company of soldiers were marching
through the town, when the captain observed that one of the drummers did not
beat, and sent the lieutenant to ask the
reason of it. The drummer whispered in
his ear: "I have got a goose and a turkey
in the drum, and the turkey is for bis
honor." When the captain was Informed
of this, he called out aloud, "Very well;
why did not that fellow tell me before that
he nad tha rheumatism'.'"
