in London will "peter out" within a fort- | Oollectedi
nighl in spite of the fact that the General
hns been the recipient of a number of Invitations to dinners and receptions. It is
significant that not one of them has
come from a social or political leader,
nor has a simile person of social oi political distinction visited him. Tlie hulk
of his callers and woulJ-he entertainers
are of a class denominated "tuft hunters" who see a possibility of achieving
notoriety, liesides this it is stated that
an account of the matter of the expulsion
of the Orleans princes from France while
Boulanger was minister of war, wherein
Boulanger's own letter to the Due 1)'-
Auniale, proves him to be both ungrateful and untruthful is to be republished
in some of the London papers. Such a
course on the part his enemies can but
have the effect of excluding him from a
great many of the clubs as well us to
close the doors of most of the hest houses
against him.

THE   VESSELS   ARE   SAFE.
San Francisco, April 25.—The anxiety
expressed in despatches us existing in the
navy department about the safety of the
Monouguhclii is not shared in by officers
at Mare Island navy yard. School master
Williams, late of Ibe" Vandalia. now on
the receiving ship Independence, at Mare
Island, says on the second day after the
Alameda left Apia, from the deck of thfs
steamer he distinctly saw two large vessels, evidently for Samoa, and one of
them lie judges was the Monongnhela,
the other he supposed was the merchant
vessel which lelt San Francisco nearly
two mouths ago with a mixed cargo of
stores for the same destination. It may
lie therefore considered almost certain
that the Monongahala arrived at Apia a
few days after the departure from there
of the Alameda.
Among the passengers of the steamer
City of Rio Janeiro, from Hong Kong today was Lieut-General Gorden Cameron,

THE NORTHERN PACIFIC BACK OUT.
New York, April 25—The Northern
Pacific Railway directors to-day withdrew
from the agreement for a harmonious
operation of roads on the Pacific northwest. This throws the burden of the
Oregon Navigation lease on the Union
Pacific. Brnyton Ives,a leading Northern
Pacific director has resigned the vice-
presidency of the Oregon Transcontinental system. This is taken to mean that
the Northern Pacific has severed its relations with the Villard interest and it is
expected thst the hitter's representatives
on the Northern Pacific board will retire
from the proposition to operate tlie Wisconsin Central on a percentage of thc
earnings,
ELECTION OF    DIRECTORS.
New Vork, April 20.—At a meeting of
the Manitoba directors in tiiis city to day
Sir George Stephen and Sir Donald
Smith were elected directors at the office
of the company, Much secrecy was observed and the names of the retiring
directors were refused. II is stated however, ihat_ ^6,000,000  of   the Manitoba
and Quincy Railroad, two years ago, nas
been resold to the original holders. The
new directors were in the Manitoba board
when the sale of the stock occurred, but
retired to make room for representatives
of purchasers in August '87.
IHE  CHARLESTON    LAID   UC.
San Francisco, April 25.—An evening
ptqier savs that the reason why the trial
trip of the cruiser Charleston has been
so long delayed is because ot a very
serious defect having been discovered in
her machinery. It was found when the
test was made the other day that the
Charleston's air pipes did not create the
desired and expected vacuum, instead
of the vacuum being 28 inches it was only
10 inches. So now they are being slowlv
and painfully adjusted. The official
Union Iron Works cruiser builders, when
spoken to regarding the publication, ie-
fused to make any statement whatever.
A man named Wolcott, who arrived
from Colorado a few days ago was discovered to be afflicted with smallpox to-day
and was removed to the pest-house.
THE   HURRICANE'S   WORK.
San Francisco, April 28—The ship
John D. Peters is now ont 110 days from
Newcastle, N. S. W„ coal laden for this
city. The consignors have no hopes of
ever receiving tidings from her, ns undoubtedly she is another of the victims
of the hurricane, which devastated Samoa
and was so destructive to the shipping in
the South Pacific. Capt. T. P. H. White-
law, the wrecker, has sent up a corps of
divers, engineers and helpers to Yaquina
Bav, and operations on the wrecked
steamer of that name will begin at once.
There is a possibility that the steamer
mav bo again floated. She cost originally
1200,000 and Wbitelaw bought the hull
and machinery for less than $3,000.

CORPS.
We are pleased to note that n movement is on foot, having for its object the
formation of a volunteer corps for Nanaimo. The idea is a good one and it
should receive the hearty support of our
citizens. Tlie warlike spirit is not so
strong as in former days, neither is
there the same need for the cultivation
of it in these "piping times of
peace," still there is a grand field for the
formation of a volunteer corps in this
city which would be a credit to the youtl i,
the bone and sinew of the country. If must
necessarily be the outcome of hard and
indefatigable lalior, if such an institution
is formed in Nanaimo. There are a few-
points in our favor which might lie
briefly mentioned. We have numbers of
young men, the very flower of youth,
who, when properly drilled, would form
a most creditable corps, and one of which
any city might feel proud. There is no reason why Nanaimo should not get to the
front in this matter, and with a little
united action we are assured that such a
desirable consummation could be brought
about. Time has lieen when this city
was asked how many men she could forward for the defence of the country,
and the answer sent hack on that ocas-
siou waa not an uncertain one. We
need such a military organization; our
position is one which demands consideration at the hands of the Federal Government, and it is to be believed were
the matter to be placed before them in a
proper manner, they would respond to
the necessity existing and provide u
grant hy which the corps could be placed
in a proper state of efficiency.
Nanaimo occupies a commanding position on the Gulf, anil were there any
difficulty with another.nation, she would
be the first to feel the force of the hostile power,
Action on the part of our citizens is in-
dispensible in order to make the present
movement a success. It needs the support of all classes, and that of the pulpit
and the press. In connection with
this we may say that the cultivation
of athletic sports would be given an impetus, our young men having something
»&..Iffi.JiyTeW,^
Hence great good would be done in that
direction alone. The saloon or street
Would not be the only place in which
to wile away the hours, which hang
heavily on their hands. A manly independence, a pride and love of the
country and its institutions would also
follow, and a healthy vigorous moral
sentiment would be engendered. And
last but not least, there would be planted
the nucleus around which, might gather
other attractions which would be of
great and lasting good to all, who took a
part in this object. Now is a good time
to act. Procrastination being the thief
of time, there is no opportunity like the
present, tojset affairs in motion and
bring about the consumation of this desirable organization. Our citizens will,
we feel assured, give every encouragement towards the accomplishment of
this object. Let some of them get to
work and Bet the ball rolling and the end
will be assured.
were confiscated to the Slate. This is not
tlie distinction between single tax men
limited and single tax men unlimited.
There is a school who would confine all
taxation to real estate, that is to land and
improvements; but these are not single
tax men. A tux on real estate is a double
tax, not n single tax. It is in part a land
value tax, and iu part a labor tax—all
that part which falls on the improvements being a tax on labor.
The single tax man limited is one who
believes in concentrating all taxation on
the value of land as the best mode of collecting public revenues; while the single
tax man unlimited is one who believes
in concentrating all taxation on land
values, not alone as the hest mode of collecting public revenues, but also as a
means of destroying the monopoly of
land which now prevents freedom of contract between employer and employee,
and diverts to private use what is of
right a common revenue. There is no
dispute between the two classes of single
tax men as to what shall be taxed.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
What Iihs become of the athletic club
which was to have been formed in this
city T. The time in ripe, and the opportunity excellent and there are lots of material.
Etiry day instances of cruelty to animals are apparent in this city, and no
steps are taken whereby those Inflicting
sruelty upon the dumb creation
may be punished. There is the
most urgent need for the formation
ofa branch of the Society for the l'reven-
tion of Cruelty to AnimalB in this city.
Will not the pastors of the difl'erent
churches take hold of this matter, and
with the influence they could exert, a
society might be formed. We are
humanitarian aud the Courier will give
what support it can towards tho formation of this society.
Local government in England appears
to be only in its infancy. The syslem
just inaugurated is to he expanded as
circumstances require. Mr. Ritchie
speaking at Leicester a few days ago, in
Unrated aa much in announcing that tlio
bill for the creation of district councils
would be taken up this year, while in the
future it would be the aim of tbo government to extend the powers of county
councils, in order to more and more decentralize the administration of tho country.
The stogie tax question, which is coming into prominence, is occupying n considerable amount of attention from the
press of the United States. An explanation of the single tax lias been going the
rounds of the preBS, says the New York
Standard, and it is an explanation that
does not explain. It sayB: "It classes
those who support the single tax into two
divisions—single tax men limited and
single tax men unlimited. The former,
it is laid, would put all tax on land and
its improvements, while the latter would
not even tax improvements, but would
tax land values alone until all land values

HYSTERIA MAJOR.
■XTHAORD1HARY RESULTS OF f HI
6XPERIMENT8 OF PROF. CHAROOT.
Be Hakes the Nerres of His SutJocU Bis
Kajthtnga—A Ctrl Who Smiled an One
fide   of   Her    Faoo—Amusing    Instruc-
Professor Charcot, tha renewed specialist
of diseases of tbe nervous system, perlorroej}
tome striking experiments on hysterical subjects la the course ot a lecture delivered at
the rjajpotriero asylum. About 200 students
Were present.
The attendants introduced Into the amphitheatre two women stretched on cots and
perfectly unconscious. One was a pale faced
$jn, with abundant black hair and a hand-
cCme faco. As she lay helpless against tho
whits pillow, her long lashes curving over
fajt dosed eyas, sho suggested tbo sleeping
bOguty. Her companion was a large woman,
aWift fifty years of age, with coarse florid
features.   The contrast between tbem was
Sets,
distinguished specialist began byex-
ng that tho two subjects before him
in different stages of hysteria major,
der woman was afflicted with paralysis
of tbe legs, which had kept her in bed for
years. Boo was at present in a profound
hysterical sleep, which bad already lasted
eighteen days, and from which human science knew no means of rousing her. She
might remain In this condition for weeks or
months, during which time sho would only
receive In the way of food certain nutritive
liquids, which she swallowed automatically.
Professor Charcot here directed an attendant to administer somo milk to tho patient.
This she did, and holding the glass with ono
hand while she raised the woman's head with
the other, she waited until the ontlre contents of tbo goblet had been slowly swallowed.
Several times during tbe soanco the patent
bent slowly and heavily forward with a
swaying motion, for no apparent reason, as
if to salute tho audience, and always accompanying the movement with a hoarse, inarticulate sound, somewhat liko tho snarl of a
dog. there was something ghastly In this to
one not hardened to dissecting room horrors.
Various tests were made to demonstrate tbe
impossibility of waking the woman. A largo
brass gong was sounded with almost deafening din directly over her head. Her nostrils
were tickled with a feather, and she was
made to Inhale ammonia. Nothing bad the
slightest effect. Her eyes remained closed,
and she gave no sign of sensibility.
Then the professor called attention to tbo
remarkable condition of her muscular system.
Ber arms would remain rigid In any position
in which they were placed, nor would they
leave It until sheer physical fatiguo overcame tbe automatio resistance. The joints
of her fingers, wrists, elbows and shoulder!
were moved In a variety of ways, and In
every cose the poor woman was powerless to
change their position. She was like a well
made, wooden jointed doll.
Next came tho turn of the lethargic girl,
who is ono of Professor Charcot's pet subjects. She remains constantly In tbe hospital,
and on speeial occasions tho savant demonstrates the wonderful power ho has over ber.
So sensitive Is her temperament that he can
at bis will throw her into the profound
lethargy in which she lay on this occasion.
Be first stated that this young woman was
in a stago of hysteria radically different from
that of her companion. Sho was like an inert mass; her musclos wero all relaxed and it
wee impossible for any member of her body
to retain a fixed position without support.
There was also n marked difference In the
condition of the nervous systems cf tho two
women. The one was keenly sensitive, tho
other apparently dead. In each case the professor pressed a poncil upon tho facial norvo,
which lies directly in front of the ear. This
had not tbo slightest effect upon the woman
iu the hysterical sloop, whereas the face of the
young girl instantly lighted up in a smile.
Curiously onough, sho only smiled on the
side where tho pressure was applied.
It was the same with other nerves. The
lethargic girl would raise hat hand when the
operator pressed upon the radial nerve above
the elbow joint when the mesial nerve,
near tho former, was touched, her arm would
spring up in t pugilistic attitude, with Vbe
fit) tightly olenohsd, and on applying tbe
penoil to what ia vulgarly known as the
"fuihy bone" she would lift her arm as if
pronouncing a benediction, tha first and
second ftjpgers of the hand being raised
kaaf eaward. Nothing of IBs sort had any
•feet upon tho otbar subjoot.
An experiment with the gong, wbioh bad
bees, vainly Beaten above toa first patient,
SoduoVl a startling effect In this case. The
isf de Clliilrjtie had struek but a single
Mow oa tne sounding brass when the young
girl storMd up as by an eloctrlo shook. She
sat straight up, with her eyelwide open, and
bat for their fixed, stony gate one might
havo fancied her awake. She had passed in
as Instant from the state of lethargy Into
that of catalepsy. She neither moved nsr
spoke.
Professor Charcot prooeoded. to show that
pressure upon the nerves no longer produced
muscular contraction. We were In the {Me-
enco of a new sot of phenomena. The professor lifted tbe girl's right hand to her lips,
as if she were throwing u kiss. Instantly the
unconscious assoolatioo of ideas caused the
right side of tbe face to smile. It was the
same when tbe left buna was raised, sod
when both hands touched her lips tba entire
face radiated tha mind'a happy thought
The young gentlemen present enjoyed this
greatly.
A frown was produced with equal facility.
Clenching one of tho fists caused a scowl to
pass over tho corresponding side of the face,
and tbe professor succeeded by combining
tbe two processes in making her smile oo ono
side and crown on tho other. No one who saw
this extraordinary oontortlon could for a
moment question the genuineness of tha demonstration.
Still mors extraordinary was the facility
with wxdeh Professor Charcot made his patient pus bask bom catalepsy to lethargy.
This be oodompUshcd by simply closing the
lids andprssslng gently on one or both of her
eyas. By. touching tho right eye he ohanged
the girl's right side into the lethargio condition while leaving the left side under the influence of oetulopsy.
Be demonstrated to the satisfaction of all
that such -was really tbo esse.. Tho right aye
was closed, while the left remained staring
open. Tba nerves oa tho right side responded
to pressure, whilo those on the left remained
dead. One side of the body was rigid while the
other was Inert. Through all this the patient
never uttered a sound. Bavlng sufficiently
established tho existence of this dual state the
professor pressed simultaneously upon both
of the girl's eyes, when she fell back on the
pillow like a lump of load.
The final experiment consisted in waking
the lethargic girl This was easily dono by
breathing sharply in her face. Hue started
up, glanced about her in a dated way, and
than realizing that sho wns only halt dressed
before a crowd 'of Jovial medical students, she
seized her scattered garments niul disappeared
from tho scene with iwlnuishlnp; rapidity.
The attendants wheeled cut thc other patient,
who calmly continued hor hysterical sleep.—

There Are Chose Who Ate ttesarred and
Others Who Show their Lara.
The plesaaptest things tbat oome to writers
ere the letters from stringers, who know us
only through our published thought*. They
are frequently letters full of appreciation
and sympathy, tAat cheer afjd wans our
hearts and set us to sharpening our pencils
to a finer point
Strangers, did I say? It would have been
better to have written acquaintances instead,
for who knows us so well as a sympathetic
reuderl
Writers are often shy about expressing
their thoughts by tbo tip of their tongues,
but give tbem a pencil and a bit of paper and
they can no moro help dropping a bit of
their heart's blood on It than a bird can fly
among flowers of spring and not sing a song
to them.
And that drop of heart's blood I how it
widens and spreads, and what maglo antl
magnetism thero is in Iti "Just so my heart
has blod," writes somo one from a little town
el. wo by, and "just so my heart has bled,"
writes another from a distant city, and "Just

"Poohl" said a shallow woman to me ono
day, "you can't niako mo bcliovo that you
writers feel what you write." "I shall not
try," I answered languidly, "life Is too short
and your brain is too narrow."
Sho cut mo tlead tho nost timo sho met ma

cold, fishy sort of woman anyhow, and hor
hand is as limp as an oystor. Thank heaven!
I shall never bo obliged to shako it again, its
owner, asit were, having shaken me]
There- is a saying that "it is better to have
tho good will than tho ill will of even a dog,"
hut it is not a saying of mine. It is a posi-
livo luxury to me to feel that certain peoplo
dislike mo as heartily as I dislike them.
There is a flavor about it, and I Uko a flavor
in dislike as well as iu love.
If nil of us would come square out in our
likes and dislikes I bcllove tbe world would
bo happier for it. Such an honest arrangement would certainly save us from much
boredomo and from a few big lies and many
littlo ones; and save us too from the pain of
misunderstanding and doubting the friendship of our friends. Give me an enemy with
a flaming torch in his hand and I will move
out of my straw bouso Into a bouse of brick.
Give me an enemy with a shotgun in his
hand, and I will run around the Comer | but

slings umler her kisses, or an enemy who
gives mo a glass of wlno .vIth ooison in it, or
a sllcoof bread raised hy the yeast of slander,
nnd I havo no way to prjtect myself.
Giro mo a friend who says frankly, "I love
you;" who shows It In her glad smile when
wo meet, makes mo feel it In the warm clasp
of her hand, and who docs not leave me in
doubt of hor sympathy when the sunshine of
happiness brightens my pathway, or the
thunders of troublo roll ovor my head.
Such a friend, full of demonstrative tenderness, is a day-spring of delight and not to
bo swapped off for many Worth costumes o|*
much flue gold.
But tho friend whoso eyes never brighten
at my approach, whoso lips never say "I am
glad for your gladness, sad for your sadness;''
whoso hands aro never stretched out to break
my fall iuto trouble, and who turns away Ills
faco lest I should discover that he sym
pathizes with mo—pshaw I such an undemou
6trutivo friend as that should bo laid across
the lap ot neglect and spnuked with a duty.
If there is one law that sits high up on .1
bench abovo all tho other laws, with a shining
countenance, dressed In the gorgeous apparel
of a judgo of tho United States supreme
court, the nanio of that law Is "Love vo ono
another," and I often wonder why the loving
Lord of love did not add—and tell each
other so.
For what earthly good is a deaf and dumb
friendship to anybody I Lovelanotaitarvo-
ling. He is represented as a well nourished,
chubby, dimpled littlo boy with wings, and
he files away from tbo heart that does not
feed him well with tender words and kisses,
and Lovo Is wise to do it
Tho pusillanimous, knock kneed, pigeon
toed, humpbacked, deaf aud dumb, idiotic
weakling that has not strength enough to
climb up out of tbe heart and peep through

of his presence, is not Love, bat a miserable
caricature on that divine little god, who has
but tho one Infirmity of'being blind.

A Delightful Pet.
The Jumping mouse, If ono may believe a
writer bi Korost and Stream, can he made a
delightful pet. Ho Is a great Jumper, and in
leaping takes a course, in zigzags, clearing
two or three yards at a time, springing with
Its bind feet, but landing on its fore feet at
each bound. Audubon says that it is certainly the most agile of animals in the entire
world's fauna. Fanners sometimes plow it
up In their wheat fields, whon it makes off in
magnificent leaps. It feeds on grain and
various kinds of seeds, but rarely does muoh
damage. Strictly nocturnal in its habits, it
may be found haunting either the woods or
the open cultivated fields.

READING   FOR   RESV.
1.(recti or the ileatfal Hook—The Ueej. if
Studies to Be Considered Work.
Nothing is more restful to the mind than a
wisely selected work of travels, description
or a. judiciously selected romance. The romances most common are too weak, and
their wit sinks too near to the line of silli-
ness, to offer much repose to a person familiar with the best writers, and tho effect of
such productions is to deprave the tasto 01
to excite irritation. A restful book to a I it-e< I
brain must produce In the mind of the reader
a sense of satisfaction with moderate stimulus. A tamo moral essay, a story iu winch
all behave well, go to sleep every night at 0
and rise every morning at 5 to listen to the
birds sing, will not suffice; and, on tho other
hand, a narrative that requires tho closest
analysis, and which appears to be constructcl
upon tbe principle of leaving tbe readers in
doubt as to the character of the heroes, is
hut a piece of intellectual dissection in dis*
guise, and would better be read for work
than for rest.
Everything that relates to history, science,
philosophy and the deeper studies of human
nature should be bandied as work. Yet
nature rewards the worker by making In the
end what at first was difficult, a charm to
him. So that tbe speoialist must be upon his
guard lest he neglect the work of reading
what he knows he needs for the more congenial occupation of reading what to others
would be work, bat to him has become
pleasure. Tho life of Charles Darwin, just
published, shows that ho brought on a pine
tidal "atrophy of tho brain," utterly changed
his tastes, and became the slave of lines of
association to which he had surrendered himself wholly.
What is work for one person may be rest
for another; and it is equally important to
consider that what may bo work for a person at ono time may bo rest at another.
Newspapers require no work, and ho who
reads them exclusively will in a few years
he unable to do Intellectual work. Many
books of a literary character require little or
110 work. Books made to oell belong generally to the class tbat can bo read as fust as
the eye can discern the letters. Every person should select his standard authors without regard to their popularity. It is rare
that a really good book, to bo mastered hy
work, has a large sale. Restful books, from
their very nature, may boeeme popular,
except among those who make utility their
god and restrict tho definition of utility to
what con be turned to practical use, or has a
technical or commercial value, and those
whose Intellects are so small and sensibilities
so abnormally large that they need exhausting excitement to hallucinate them into tbo
belief that they ore happy.—Rev. J. M.
Buckley in The Chautauquan.

As Bail v*» a Man.
Did you over encounter a demonstratively
drunken woman in a street conveyance, where
you could not relievo yourself of her presence
within a certain time without Inconvenience £
I did, the other day—or rather the other
night, for I was on my way to a down town
theatre. She was a young woman—perhaps
25. Her dress was neat enough, but tawdry,
and she carried a pretty babe ih her arms,
which could not havo been more than 6 mouths
old. The car was well filled, but not so well
as she was. Suddenly she removed a stony
stare from a fat man in the corner, and endeavored to look out of tho window behind
her, maintain the upright and hold the baby
simultaneously.
"Won'er where we arei"' she said aloud.
"Guess we'll be late homo, baby. Oo you
hear, mamma's pot. Who cares I Hoop la.
Everything goes—don't it, baby, hey?"
Three or four whisky laden kisses here attested the mother's affection. The ladies
present shuddered, the gentlemen scowled,
and the young man who was smoking a bad
cigar on the rear platform grinned, while a
newsboy engaged in stealing a ride peered
through the glass and tried to flirt with the
infant. For a few moments the exhilarated
female seemed lost in thought, during which
time the little one was only saved from a
descent to the floor by a kindly disposed
neighbor. Then she made a sudden dive for
her pocket.
"Hullo—ain't got my night key. I say,
baby, whatyou think o' thatf We've lost
tho key. Well, everything goes, and I suppose we've got to make a racket to get tn.
Whoop I It's all right any ho w-ain't it, baby.
Say, conductor"	
Hero she glared at the man with a bad
j.gar, and he stopped grinning and looked
another way.
"Hullo, this Is a bobtail. No conductor on
bobtail. Forgotall'twutthat-ha! ha! Well,
that's funny, too, ain't it, baby. But everything goes, so'a all right. Whoop I Say,
mister, w here's Houston street—I wanter get
off at Houston street. This is—that's all
right Come along, baby. Won'er where that
key's gone, anyhow?   'Souse- mo."
Hero she nearly sat down on the fat man.
Tho ladies present drew back as she paused
them, and tho men looked the other way.
The man with the bad cigar said: "Where
yer getttn'to—brace up," when she staggered
against him and nearly dropped the baby.
Tho newsboy got off tho step, seised ber arm,
piloted her to tho curb, whistled at tbe baby
and waited for the next car.—"Clara Belle"
in Now Orleans Times-Democrat.
The Guide and tbe Grluliei.
While I believe that a grizzly bear will, in
a majority of cases, wait for a fight with a
man, and take pains to get in the way of one,
there are times when it will seem to think
better of it and back out. A remarkable instance of this kind I heard of once, where a
famous Manitoba guide courageously advanced upon throe grizzlies, an old she ono
and two half grown young bears, and by a
series of ridiculous monkey shines and acrobatic maneuvers on the ground within a
rod or two of the bears filled thorn with such
astonishment and apparent fear that the
tbreo retreated Into the woods with all rapidity. The guide's gun had snapped in both
barrels, he having drawn on the old bear before tho young ones appeared. He afterward
Bald that it was a fit of desporation that ho
tried the turning of a handspring, and jumping up and down, flopping his hands, and resorting to other unhunterliku measures. Ha
had been told once that a hunter had frightened & mountain Hon away by similar absurd movements, and he found that it worked
to perfection in tho cose of the bears, although he d.d not encourage any one to go
hunting grizzlies armed with nothing more
than a capacity to turn somersaults.—New

Asiatic Tribes Whose Land la Aim oat a
Seali-fl Hook to the White Man—Sahara
Lands — South America — The Polar
Region*.
It is likely that within tho next twenty or
thirty yean all the areas that are still wholly
unknown, except  perhaps within the polar
circles,  will   have yielded their secrete  to
daring explorers.    Inhospitable tribes now
rear more barriers than nature does to retard
the progress of discovery. While geographers
have for years disputed over tbo conundrum
whether tho greut Banoo river of Thibet i«
the headquarters of the Urahmaputra or of
tho Irruwadi rivers, the fierce little Mishiui
tribe has guarded tbe secret, killed the adventurers who dared to Intrude amoug their
mountains   and   left   tho   geographers   to
wrangle.    It was only last year that their
country was crossed at last, and it is now
evident that tho Brahmaputra is a thousand
miles longer than some authorities admitted.
A  littlo northeast of India is Kufiristuu,
whoso lovely valleys are densely peopled by
tribes that are physically umong the band-
' somest of Asiatics.   Their country is almost
a sealed book to us, for only ono white man,
Mr. McNair, has succeeded iu crossing their
threshold.   About four yearn ago, staining
bis skin with walnut juice and in theguisoof
an Indian doctor, he pushed somo way iuto
tho country until the suspicious natives became so inquisitive that lie thought it prudent to retreat.    No scientific traveler hus
ever reached Lhasa, the capitul  of Thibet
! aud tho Rome of tbe Buddhists,  or penetrated far into southern Thibet, though many
notable attempts have been made.    Recently
\ Prejevalsky has tried twice in vain to reach
i Lhasa, and last year Mr.   McCauley, after
| elaborate   preparations  and  after   he   had
| spent a year iu getting tho permission of the
I Chinese and Thibetan authorities  to   visit
j Lhasa, was finally turned back before he had
; crossed the frontier.    The only reason that
I tho southern half of Thibet aud a large part
, of Napuul aud the Himalayas arc not u white
! space or a mere jumble ou our maps, is that
j native Indians have  been  trained to tho
| work of exploration by the Indian survey
i and sent north to travel as mendicants or
j merchants.    They can   rarely   carry   with
I them scientific   instruments   larger  than a
compass, and their work, though very valu-
I able, is far from being thorough and satisfactory.    So fearful   is  tho Indian  survey
that the real business of its native explorers
will be discovered that their own friends do
not know where they aro sent, and   their
names are not connected with their explorations until after thoy have retired from uc-
! tivo service.
!    Similar impediments embarrass the trav-
j eler In all parts of  Mohammedan Africa.
j Grandly as Bartb, Hohlfs, Nuchtigal, Lenz
and  a half dozen   others have served tlie
I cause of geography in the Sahara desert, our
khowledge of that mountainous and elevated
region is anything but thorough and udu-
uuiite.    He truly  tukes his life in his hand
who ventures umong the Tuaregs and other
fierce nomads of the (Sahara.   Unless he can
tulk Arabic like a native, and can skillfully
assume tho guise of a Mohammedan, he is al-
nlast certain to meet the fate of Mile. Turns

j men who have reached Timbuotoo, attempted

I The great basin of tihe Congo has been
more prolific of geographical surprises within tbe past five years than any other part of
tho world in this century. And yet the work
i thero has only begun. In this vast area
there has been very little exploration except
along the water courses, and even the river
banks have for tho most part received only
a cursory and preliminary survey. Wiss-
muiin Is now crossing tho continent from
sea to sea, across the southern part of the
Congo basin; Kund and Tappeubeck havo
made a short journoy overland from river
to river, but generally speaking the vast
regions between the rivers are still almost
wholly unknown.
It Is not difficult to see one good reason
why South America has been comparatively
neglected by travelers, while, on the other
bund, Africa has been running over with
them. Neither oommerco, science, nor missionary ardor have seen in South America
the same promise of rich rewards that have
allured them to the uplands of inner Africa.
Still such journeys as Dr. Von Stoinen and
his comrades recently made on the great
Xiugu tributary of the Amazon, when they
discovered curious and wholly unknown
tribes and other things of much interest,
show that these regions are a fine field for thu
explorer.
The Brazilians know less of a large part uf
their empire than they might easily learn of
Nova Zambia, and in Ecuador and some
othor states Whymper and other travelers
! say that tbe government maps are hopeless I y
| inaccurate. The best and most interesting
explorations in South America aro now carried oo by the Argentine Republic. Among
their pampas and cordilleras, iu tho valleys
of Patagonia and on the grassy plains of
Terra del Fuego, these researches, now hi
full progross, have been prolific of geographical sensation. Good, honest exploration up
sets hundreds of theories and fanciful stories
that have come to be accepted facts.
It is In the lofty regions of inner Asia that
tlm greatest works of discovery still remain
to bu achieved. The Russian explorers aro
among tho best trained and most competent
travelers in the world, and thoir government
it. today doing far more than any other nu
tion to promote geographical discoveries.
The Antarctic regions will probably bo the
next field of polar Inquiry, and no.no steps
Ui this ond have been tal.on both iu Great
Britain aud Australia. As the south polar
region is not, liko tho Arctic zone, crowded
wilh islands and urchipelagoes, it is of muck
moro importance In the study of ocean currents.
BtrnngO as it may seem, tho Pacific ocean
is Mill far from well known. When Wilfred

Talk of originality. It was original und

was showing to her friends a very handsome
ring her husband had given her. It was un
oval of diamonds, with three pretty litllo
opaque bluish whito stones in the center.
Nobody could tell what those stones were,
and everybody got curious to know. Sho did
not know herself. Her husband had not told
her.   They insisted on his telling.

I.lie Insurance.
The Mutual Life Insurance Company,
of New York, is the largest Life Insurance Company in the world. Mr. Reiil,
General Solicitor for tho Company, is
now in Nanaimo, and he has been doing
a land olliee business. This Company
needs no recommendation.
AROUND TOWN,
A walk around the city reveals the fact
that despite the present temporary depression improvements ol" various "kinds
are being Inaugurated; The streets are
receiving numerous repairs; new sidewalks are being laid, and new buildings
of a substantial kind are going up on
every side. While our merchants Complain somewhat of Ihe present dullness,
there is still a healthy and buoyant feeling, ami all consider that the business
prospects of the future are good. A few
months time will make n great difference
in business of all kinds in the Black Diamond citv.
Rome wasn't built in a day, and Nanaimo will require many days before she
will be a Rome. Soine'of the sidewalks
especially about Victoria Crescent would
be the better for some repairs, In their
present condition they are somewhat uncertain ami exceedingly shaky.

The Downward Path.
Judge Patrick G. Duffy, ot Toronto,
the well-known police magistrate, has
been making some philosophical ami
moral observations on thc descent of
woman—meaning, of course, woman ns
she reveals herself in the Police Court.
"Do you know," he saitl, "what is the
principle thing that brings women into
this court? It is love of dress. There are
men with money constantly on the lookout for such women," continued the
Judge, "and the result is thc oft-told tale
For a time the woman has fine clothes,
diamonds and wine suppers. It is very
fine, but it doesn't last. From wine the
woman drops to whiskey; from whiskey
to beer—but what is the use of going any
further?   The rest ran be imagined.
We need a branch of the S. P, C. A.
A case ill point. On Sunday last a cow
was struck by a locomotive on tlio E. &
N. R. R., near the East Wellington
crossing. One of its legs wns broken
and a horn torn off. The animal has
been left In that suffering condition ever
since, unable lo help itself. We protest
against such an exhibition [of cruelty.
Whei-cari! the humanitarians of Nannimo ?
There are too many instances of cruelty
to animals occurring every day which
need remedying, nntl the best way to
mitigate such cruelty is to form a branch
of the S. P. C. A. '
Since writing tlie above we learn that
the injured animal referred to, will, today, be put out of its misery. It's a long
time though for a poor dumb boast to suffer before the "happy dispatch" being
performed.
What has become of Alderman Peck's
ifliO.OOO loan by-law? Can the genial
alderman explainjwhy something hasn't
been beard of it? A sixty thousand dollar loan would be a pretty good thing for
Manaimo if Alderman 1'eck, by exercising
somo of his silver-tongued oratory, could
induce the ratepayers lo pass it. But
"there's the rub."
Speaking of Aldermen leads me to
say that Alderman Nightingale makes a
very efficient chairman of the Street Committee. He is plain spoken and practical
and looks after the streets with a fatherly
eye. It's a pity he hail not more funds
at his disposal. If he had they would lie
wisely used.
A   false  Statement.
In the public meeting held on the 16th
instant, reference was made to a statement made by a Mr. Joseph.of Sun Francisco, that he had not reeefved pay for
badges aad caps furnished by him to the
Nanaimo fire department. Mr. A. Rnper
states that the statement was unqualifiedly false. Mr. Joseph agreed to furnish
badges of « certain size for a specified
sum.::The-Badges wore sent but were
not of the size agreed upon, und the only
delay in payment was caused by the act
of Mr. Joseph himself in not fulfilling

T. O'Connell returned yesterday from
his trip down the line as far us Somenos.
He had been hunting for the sneak thief,
who robbed R. Evans of his   valuables.
Officer O'Connell is  rather  wroth that
tbo fugitive was allowed to slip   through
the  fingers of sonis of the residents  of
Chemainus district, who hail him   bo  to
speak conralled.' He was asked if there
was a warrant "issued for the arrest of the
tile! and'in some.places the inhabitants
oud  not even  know  of  the   robbery
O'Connell is most energetic in  his  endeavors to capture the runaway and stay

A colored case in the police court yesterday amused me somewhat. Judge
Planta is wise and thoroughly magisterial.
He is full of wise saws anil modern instances, and he is not a lover of law, but
of peace, and many a good sermon falls
unconsciously from his lips. His honeyed
eloquence ditl not settle the dark case
yesterday, however, nntl it will again occupy the attention of the worthy judge.
It was an amusing Bight this afternoon
lo see one of our most "potent, grave and
reverend seigniors" making a frantic endeavor to catch his hat, which the wind
luul lifted from his shinning pate. The
hat is flotsam and jetsoin somewhere

The route of tbe travelers lay past Ulm,
once tho great Imperial free city, an 1 a fortress from the earliest times. Its magnificent
cathedral, begun over 500 years ago, Is still
unfinished, but oven incomplete ls oneot tho
finest church buildings to be found In
Europe. We need not, however, go back to
tho foundation of the cathedral to find history
made in and about Ulm, for in sight of tho
cathedral towers Marshal Ney gained the
great victory which gavo Napoleon absolute
control over this part of Austria. The only
rello of Vim's former strnteglo importance is
seen in tho forts which still rise round the
city and protect It against a possible f'lturo
invasion, but tho victories now won at TJlm
are those of commerce, for the pipes of Ulm
aro famous all over Germany, and tbe reputation of tbo Ulmer bread has extended as far
as that of tbo Wienerwurst.
Past Neuberg went tho travelers, and
Schonbuechel, and Durreusteln, the famous
castle where Richard I was imprisoned, and
where his faithful servant, after traversing
tho whole of Europe, and visiting every castle
of importance, in tho vain effort to discover
his Imprisoned king, nt length found bim by
singing under his window the old chanson
which was tho favorite of Napoleon I, "0,

Passau they went, situated on the peninsula
where tho Inn and the lis mix their waters
with those of tho Danube. Liko Ulm, Passau
has been a tort for untold ages, for here the
Germans had a fortress before tho Romans
Invaded tho land, and Fort Oborbaus, which
crowns a mountain on tho loft bank of the
Danube, was once a racdlmval castle, now remodeled into a modern fortification and
forming one of the strongest c'ladels in
South Europe.
But Passau docs not rely altogether on the
old Qberhaus castle for Its protection, for
almost within tbe city ls the Nlederbaus
castle, and a dozen other forts at various
points in the neighborhood attest tbe value
placed upon it by tha Austrian government.
In truth, it ls a beautiful town, rising like an
amphitheater on the peninsula, well built In

Jos. Rndello nn old enterprising resident of Comox, has plotted a town site
aliout a quarter of a mile from the steamboat landing. He is erecting a number
of houses, nntl his lots nre being sold
rapidly.
Mr. McPbee, one of our live business
men has, also plotted an addition adjoining that of Mr. Rudello, anil he is putting
the lols on the market.
The merchants report trade fairly good,
and Comox is expected to forge ahead in
a surprising manner the present year,

all restored, and it is now among tbe best
armed cities in Central Europe. The playing
cords of Austria aro made bore, and some even
exported to North Germany, but tbe queer
old city derives tbo moat of its fame from
the university, no longer there, but ages ago
removed to Munich, and the university itself
would bave been forgotten hundreds of years
since had it not been for one Dr. Rbegius, a
poot apd philosopher, known in tbe drama
and opera as Dr. Faustus. His tomb stand-
in ono of the churches, and his memory ban
boon embalmed by the dramatists and
librettists.
Past Aggstein went they, where tho famous ghost has haunted tho castle for many
generations. Like tho White Lady of Dublin, tho Aggsteiu ghost appears prior to tho
death of one of tho family owning the castle,
and wanders about its halls, shrieking and
moaning in such a way as to strike terror
Into tho hearts of all the survivors. Leaving tbe Aggsteiu castle aud specter, tho
travelers went op post tho Strudel, a magnificent gorge in the Upper Danube, whero the
stream, confined In a narrow channel between precipitous banks, doubles tbo velocity
of its current and sweeps along with an overwhelming force botween two castle crowned
hills, hoary with historic associations.
Next comes Ratlsbon, In tho Bavarian
province of Oborpfalz, at the mouth of the
Ragen, the most medlreval city In Europe,
for at ovory turn its temptors, moats, gates,
drawbridges, crooked streets, overhanging
houses, projecting whitlows, clusters of old
fashlonod chimneys, doors with hugo knockers, lack of paving, narrow passways through
which it is impossible for a vehicle to pass,
dark passages under tbo houses, all remind
one of cities of 000 years ago. Now gono to
deoay, Ratlsbon wna once tho most nourishing oity of southern Germany. Its onthodral,
begun In tho Elovonth century and finished
less than 100 years ago, is one of tha finest
specimens V>f Gothic architecture In tho
world. Ratlsbon is noted for nothing but its
antiquity, but It hns any quantity of that,
and to spare.
Tben into Hungary flows tho Danube, past
Prosburg, tho former capital of Hungary
after Buda-Pesth had been taken by the
Turks. As old as Ratlsbon is Fresburg, but
it does not show its ago so plainly; still one
may hero rovol in tbe associations of tho past,
for hero is tho cathedral where for hundreds
of years the Hungarian kings were crowned
and where the most of thorn lie burled.
Here, too, ls the Hill of Coronation, made ol
earth brought from every provinco of tbe
empire, and after tbo ceremonies In tbe cathedral wero concluded, up this bill rode
Maria Theresa, tho crown upon her bead, the
orb of empiro in ono hand and the royal
sword In tbe other, dnd pointing her weapon
in turn to tbe four points of the compass,
bade defiance to the whole world, for this
was the practice of tbe Hungarian kings after
their coronation.—Cor. St Louis Globo-Dem-
