Large railway orders  trom Japan are
being given in England, nne of which includes ten engines, about 100 carriages,
antl many thousand casks of cement;
whilo a cargo of steel rails is on itB way
out and many orders in various stages
of completion. The curious point of this
is that for three years past although the
Japanese have been construct ing railways
with extraordinary activity, scarcely" a
single order for railway material has been
placed in Great Britain although prior to
hat time they all came here. They
stopped suddenly for two Or three years
and are now beginning quite as suddenly
again. The secret of the matter is, all
Japanese railways are either Government lines, or constructed under a Government  guarantee.    Three yenrs ago

From our London letter  published  in
to-day's telegraphic news, we learn that
Japan is buying railway material very
largely ill the English markets. This is
the more gratifying, owing to the tact
thai four years ago when   this   thirst for
railway construction set in, the orders
chiefly went to France and Germany,
thereby causing English Protectionists tu
cry out that her Free Trade Policy was an
utter failure, inasmuch as English
manufacturers were unable to compete in
the markets of the world  with  commercial rivals, each of which—at  any rate
Germany—was  "protected   up to the
eyes."   At last comes the explanation of
a   fact    whicli    puzzled    the    Political
Economists sorely.   The Japanese Government sent their orders for locomotives,
cars, rails, &C, to French nnd German
makers, in order to curry favour with the
Ministers representing those nations at
Yokohama.     A   conference  was   being
held at the time, and the wily Japanese
evidently thought  that a "sop to Cerberus'' was the best way to make friends.
Xow that the particular need of friendly
nfllcps by tbe representatives of the two
great European Powers is at an end. back
come the orders to Great Britain.    From
this    we   are   led    to    infer   that  in
markets   where   there   is   no   favour
shown, England can yet rather   more
than hold her own, and may truly boast
that in her hold   over eastern  markets
• sbe has not yet ceased to be mistress.
Japan has made enormous strides during
the last few years in what we may call
"Western civilization," and only just recently has extorted the right, so long
denied   them,    of    trying     foreigners
before native tribunals; a privilege lirst
granted by the Government ofthe United
States     though   Lord   Salisbury   wns
quickly forced to follow suit, on ing to
tlie fact that the Japanese Government
in return for this privilege.nllowetl trailers
to prosecute their business with absolute
safety hi parts of Japan which hail to all
intents  and  purposes  been previously
closed against them.
scene of action—to sec what a general impression appears to prevail among the
press of tiretit Britain that the time is fast
j approaching when Russia means to show
her hand.   Each paper that we pick up
refers in Bomoshapeto Russian intrigues
and consequent war-scares, though as te
these latter we have more than a suspicion that they are  invented antl stimulated  very largely by speculative Stock
Exchange operators.    Lord  Beaeonsfield
once told his bearers at a Mansion House
dinner, that "Russia was not ajpower to
be dreaded  hy Croat   Britain  until her
finances were in better order."   As each
year  conies  round, she borrows fresh
capital to pay oil arrears of interest, antl
now-a-days   great   bankers such as the
Rothschilds or Barings have not a little to
sny in the matter of a nation going to war,
when that nation's credit is by no means
of 1 lie best.    Lord Salisbury who has told
his brother peers that if they would take
the trouble   to  study a decent  map of
South-Western  and  Central   Asia, they
would cease to  feel the constant alarms,
to allay which he bus found so troublesome  a matter—might  we think   have
fairly   Included   those   who   write   for
the great   London dailies as well.   The
prevailing notion,   so  far us were are
able   to  understand it,  among English
writers is, tbat Russia will  very  shortly
make a descent on Turkey,  under the
pretense   of   restoring oiiler   either (in
Bulgaria or  Itouinnnia.   Then as a set
off ti) possible English interference in the
Black Sea,a diversion is to be made in the
form of an expedition which  is to start
from   Astrakan   by way of the Trans-
Caspian Railroad to Herat, and so on to
Cabiil, until the mountains of the Hindoo
Koosh are reached,   Wc are not of those
who believe fur one moment  that—supposing a  Russian army ever succeeded
in crossing the waterless deserts whicli
would   have   to  he traversed  on  foot,
anil succeeded in forcing its way through
the hostile and mountainous country of
Afghanistan, that even then it could succeed in endangering our Indian Empire,
ever though we allow also that they succeed
ed in forcing any one of tlie three passes
which  are  the only practicable routes
which  an   invading  army  could take.
Our belief is, and we express it most emphatically, that tlreat Britain is a waxing
power; that her sun is not yet in its
zenith; just  as  we firmly believe that
Russia is on the other hand a waning
power,   inasmuch   as her  vast Empire
contains within itself all the seeds necessary to breed disruption.

An article headed "A Needed Fire
Alalia," which appeared In the E'eee
Press of Friday, urges upon I lie City
Council the necessity of taking steps to
provide Nanaimo with u fire alarm, the
nature of which is outlined by the writer.
Doubtless tho plan suggested is bette.i
than nothing, and we give the due
meed of praise to the proprietor of the
'•veiling paper in question for his happy
thought, but we fear that if ihe safely of
the eity from destruction by fire,depended
upon the successful currying out of this
scheme, that Nanaimo would soon lie but
a name. We make no comment other
than to ask any business man accustomed to giving and receiving
replies on the telephone. what
he thinks of the plan suggested,
an extract from which reads as follows:
"Should a lire occur at any distance
from the engine house nil that would be
necessary would be to go to the nearest
telephone and call up the central oflice,
and as a person is on duty there night
and day, a prompt reply would be ns-
sured. The central office would ring the
alarm gong (which could be heard for a
block) in the engine house, and any person hearing it would ring the bell. In
the meantime the central would call up
the Royal Hotel, etc,"
Without wishing to say one word
against the management of the telephone
company, wo yet venture to think the
"proposed Bystem" would hardly work
when put to (he test. Whilst giving our
evening contemporary credit for at least
meaning well In this mnttei'.yet we think
flint if a fire alarm is to be adopted we
might ns well have one that we know is
really effective when put lo the text. The
gisi nf ibe whole matter lies ill
these few italicised words. Why not
use fire-alarm boxes placed at the corner
of certain thorough-fares, as tlo the
people of San Francisco. The system is
comparatively inexpensive, simple, certain nntl efficacious, aiid'sntisticsourCali-
forniau friends, which fact nf itself counts
for something, [n the 'vent of our
Aldermen taking up the matter we think
they might with advantage to all concerned, iitjlenst inquire into the working
niul cost of the Ran Franciscan lire-
alarms, antl also into oilier methods for
attaining the same end.

Some few days ago we published
among our telegraphic news an item to
the effect that a secret treaty had been
arranged between the Shah of Persia and
the Czar of Russia, by which Russia, under certain conditions, which were not
stated, would annex Persia, at least temporarily. This intelligence must, if
trustworthy, he the cause of considerable
uneasiness to those persons who have
kept "in touch" with matters pertaining
to our Indian Empire. There would lie
nothing extraordinary in these constantly recurring war scares were it not forthe
anxious pooh-poohing of official Russian
organs. Allowing for disquieting tumours it is amazing to us—perhaps because we nre at a sufficient distance to

Au amusing story was told a few day age
regarding tho young suns of tho emperor,
who aro continually getting iuto uiisehiot
During tho afternoon games tlio chamherlaln
bad introduced them into tlio mysteries ot
tho opera hat, which pleased, tho children,
"because," as tho martini crown prince said,
"it goes oft! liko a camion and will ho a good
thing with whicli to frighten mamma,"
Shortly afterward they were in tho reception room with their father, when the court
preacher, Dr. KogeJ, wus announced, He
wus nskod to enter, aud tlio children, after
greeting him, were sent to the corridor to
await tho audience's end, Hero they espied
the court preacher's high hat, and, believing
all such appendages possessed of tho qualities
of tho ohapeau claque, considered it a fit object for experiment.
Littlo Eitel Fritz, tho most adventurous of
tho four, took it in bis small arms aud pressed
itagainst his breast with all his might. But
it would not grow loss, tho expected report
failed to come, and tho little fellow lugged
away in vain. '•! cannot do it," ho cried,
looking for advice to thu older brother, who
stood uniformed at his side. The crown prince
drew his sword, and, straightening up as a
soldier, commanded at once, as the brilliant
thought came into his head, "Sit upou iti"
Straightway It was done. The hat waa
crushed and Eitel Fritz rolled upon tho floor.
The uproarious laughter which followed the
accomplishment of this feat brought the emperor from tho room, asking what was tht
causo of tho unusual hilarity. Tho crown
princo pointed to tho dilapidated remains of
tho court preacher's hat and said: ''It would
not go off at flrst, but I commanded Eitel
Fritz to sit upon it, and theu it cracked just
like tho others." Tlio emperor could not forbear to laugh, while scolding the children for
tbeir pranks, Ho presented the hat to Dr.
Kegel us a memento of his future ruler, and
sent tho servant to purchase a new one. Dr.
Kogel uow treasures both.—Berlin Letter in

It is now somo years since Mr. Alfred Cel-
lier wrote- his yawning song—an invitation
to drowsiness not less potent than the best
after dinner speech of a magistrate or ths
good old threo decker scriuou. Yawning has
genorally been associated with comedy,
Thero have even been coarso wags who, iu
reference to tho well known "catching"
power of yawning, havo evolved the proverb, "What is mine is yawn,"—a confusion
of "mourn" and "tuum," only defensible in
tho case of a sleep walker. But reports from
Cambridge city, in Indiana, put a tragic
color upon this institution. In that town
ono Mr. Lackey, having indulged in a large
yawn, ruptured somo of the cords lu the
vertebra.', and "remains nt present in n critical condition." Tin's regrettable incident
should bo a warning to all lazy folk. Yawning is a vico which is of all vices most sympathetic. Tho terrible maxims about "ex*
ample" apply to it with fatal pertinence.
Is there not oven tho case of tho lounger
in tho British museum who, standing opposite to ono of tho triumphs of Assyrian
sculpture, was provoked hy tho silence
and tho attitude of t ho monster's Jaw
into what is believed to havo boon tho most
capacious yawn on record! Still, tho yawn
must be recognized as a valuable social instrument. What is so couvonient to got rid
of a wearisome intruder as that littlo motion of tho hand to tho mouth, which, liko a
chorus lady's costume, suggests what it does
not reveal, lt is a standing maxim in tho
hand books of "Ktiquette for tho drawing
room" that yawning must on no account be
permitted. As nu offense it is ranked with
the kindred offonscs of eating soup hastily or
shoveling peas to tho mouth with a knife.
But not all tho maxims of hand books will
orer ostracise that most convenient form ot
dismissal, which intimates by a yawn what
words oaunot express.—London Globe.

tho subject of tho part played by North
America In literature His opinion is that
tho main hmdranco to tho literary and bcI*

found in tho want of a great central university, and in "tho slipshod character of the

A  Diver's Experience,
In searching for the bodies of drowned
persons, I have experienced Bome great shocks
from very simple occurrences, perhaps tho
most notable of which was at tho St. Charles
bridge disaster. Among the unfortuiAtss
had beeu a tramp who had gone down with
tho wreck. I thought [had alt the bodies
out, and had beeu blasting for about two
weeks, when, while leaning over the side of
a small boat, a white, ghastly, and nearly
mid.: corpse shot right up In the air, some
feet clear of tho water, grazing my faco as ft
passed. At flrst I thought It an apparition.
So sudden and uuoxpected did the horrid
thing burst ou my sight that It completely
unnerved me, nud for days I was prostrated.
Tho explanation was simple The bod}' had
been pinned down until decomposition had
generated gases and made tho corpse so light
that it naturally longed to get out of the
water, until tho specific gravity had beeu
rendered so much less than that of the surrounding eletneut, thnt the longiug had been
intensified to a degree that overcame the retaining influence, and it got free and shot
upwards. Bodies gain a remarkable force by
continued expansion. I have known them to
bring up an amount of sand and mud almost
beyond belief.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Atomic   Nature. |
Nature works everywhere with an Infinite
number of small magnitudes which can only
bo perceived[by our obtuse organs of sense,
when in infinite masses. For example, a
granule of common salt that we aro hardly
able to taste, contains myriads of groups of
atoms invisible to mortal eyes. Three mille-
grammes, thirteen sixty-fifths of a grain,
blown into a [room containing sixty cubio
meters of [air will, in a few minutes, show
6odium lines in a flame, standing some distance away, easily distinguished by the naked
eye. Darwin states the astonishing fact that
one twenty-millionth part of a grain of ammonia sulphate will induce changes in a
gland sufficient to cause a motor impulse to
be sent the wholo length of tho tentacle of
an insectivorous plant. Stropin, when diluted more than a million fold, will produce
contractions in the pupil of tho eye.—Kansas City Journal.
Multip.H'ittJoii of Drugs.
A Baltimore physician In a paper published
in a local medical journal denounces with
lively earnestness the tendency to tbe multiplication of useless drugs. Tho writer asserts that in the index to tho fifteenth edition of tho "United States Dispensatory" ie a
list of about 17,000 names of medicinal substances, which, allowing for duplication and
repetition, tie estimates represents about
11,000 remedies. Those of acknowledged
merit in this enormous bulk are aptly compared to Gratiano's reasons, "two grains of
wheat hid in two bushels of chaff." Tho
very existence of this vast armory of therapeutic weapons demonstrates the doctor's
weakness in his struggle with disease. The
couquorors of this world- are tho men of few
weapons; the needless elaboration of arms is
the vain resort of tho feeble.—Analyst

stress is laid upon the requirement hi most

One sloppy morning, sever-*! weeks ago,
two young women living on tilo Hill met at
the home of one of them for the purpose of
dissecting their fellow men aw* women, comparing notes and exchang ing ex'perieuces, and
In due time madea mutual discovery that iifu
In St. Paul was decidedly flat and stale, if nol I
altogether unprofitable.
"Now, in   Now  York,"   yawned   Marion,
wearily, "when society  begin*- to pall,  the
girls go slumming and do nice things like !
tbat."   Marion is a blonde, and looks as if '
her spirit walked only in   Ue sunlight of
angels'. wings.    "But here the most exciting!
thing wo ever do is to givo a masquerade, i
which makes us a lot of worry aud work and 1
expense, and when It is over wo find we have 1
only succeeded iu making ourselves perfectly |
hideous by a misguided selection of costume,
and havo hud  nothing but a Glancing parly
after all."
Maude thought thoy ought to be able to de
vise something that would havo at least u
grain of Bpico. "What do you say to going
to tho dime museum?" sho said abruptly
"Thero might bo something in It '
"Thero is," exclaimed Maude triumphantly,
"aud it's a 'Human Balloon.' I read so In
the morning paper."
"1 suppose he would havo a fow clothe,
on?" remarked Marion doubtfully.
"Oh, of courso; tights anyway.    Let's go.'
And so it happened that the two daring
young ladies concealed their aristocratic features behind thick veils, and trusting their
lives to the Integrity of the cablo (as tho first
step In their reckless adventure, perhaps),
came down by the common route and sneaked
—aye, verily, sneaked into tho dime museum.
"HeavensI What smells so?" gasped Ma
rion at the top of the stairs.
"It's the aroma of novelty, machere. You
may change, you may alter the house if you
will, but the scent of tho freak will cling
round it still."
"That sounds as if you had been here before," and Marlon cost an eye of suspicion
upon her friend.
"Well, I haven't, but 1 weut iuto a side
show once at a circus. Marion Hilltop," she
whispered, grasping that young woman's arm
with a black-and-blue clutch, "I actually believe that man is in his skint"
"Nonsense! Let go my arm. It's pink
silk, and not much of n fit either; but it does
look a little like skin at first."
The human balloon roso aud spoke his little
piece; then drawing a prolonged inspiration
he expanded his chest and stomach until his
body was more than twice the original size,
held it a moment, and with a slow expiration gradually decreased to his normal proportions.
"It makes me sick," declared Marion.
"I believe it's a trick," rejoined Maude.
"I'll bet anything it's somo kind of a rubber
arrangement that he blows up some way
with air.    Let's look at tho monkeys."
"Thanks; I meet too many English apes
capering around in society to find anything
amusing in tho African species. Maude, what
do you suppose the men ure looking at

"Well, I've heen watching, and thero hasn't
a Blngle woman gono over yet. I expect it's
something pretty bad. Would you dare look!
Merciful goodness!   Is the place on fire?"
"No, mom," responded a bystander, ejecting a stream of tobacco juice from a swollen
jaw. "It's tho crowd a-rashin' down to set
the seals."
Tho two girls, determined to beo It all, followed the unsavory throng, and to this day
the possible impropriety that hid beyond that
row of bull's eye holes remains a tantalizing
mystery to them. The performance of trained
seals they found really interesting. Tho
jnvenlleseal was quite ns kittenish as the
stage juvenile always is; tho topical song
seal sang tho usual number of verses with
tho traditional lack of voice, and received the
same old encores; the funny business bore tho
authoratlve stump of ripe old age, und on tho
wholo the entertainment was just us well l
worth seeing as two-thirds of tho coinbina-■
tions put upou the regular boards, and had a
decided advantage over tho latter in that tho |
performers wero seals and not persons.
"I didn't see any fur on them that looked
like my sealskin coat," commented Marion aa
the curtain fell
"Perhaps they've shed their coats, I think
I've read that some animals do shed their outside skin when Ihey get in a warmer climate."
"No, I think you're wrong, Maude, about
that. But perhaps the fur grows on the inside. I shouldn't wonder ii lt did, becauso if
it was ou the outside it would got so stuck
with Ice crawling around on Icebergs"	
"Sow do you know they do?" interrupted
"Because, don't you remember, tho picture
in our geographies always represented seals
as sunning themselves on icebergsr'
At the foot of tho stairs they found a man
selling tickets for "a first class theatrical performance by the English Novelty company
of celebrated artists; gentleman will please
remove their hats."
"A variety show," whispered Marion.
"I've always been dying to go to one, I
guess we won't buy reserved seats, but stand
back here.   We may havo to leave."
And a "variety" show it was, but absolutely free from any impropriety. They found
lt sufficiently interesting to remain to tho
close, although considerably disappointed at
the absence of anything sensational The
vocalists had better voices than tho average
■lager In first class burlesque, and were costumed rather more modestly. The jokes, if
somewhat moss grown, were at least not unpleasantly suggestive, and the specialties
Were all cleverly done. The artist who played
popular airs on a violin with anything under
the light of the sun from a washboard to on
old shoe, as Maude afterward said, gave better music than Hoey does with his peculiar
Instrument in "A Parlor Match," to say
nothing of the man who proved that real
melody can be extracted from a penny whistle in the hands—or mouth, rather—of 0
"Well, we haven't soeu or heard a single

walked down Seventh street. "But it's been
a great lark. Wonder if any one saw us.

In a general way the monthly payment
stores afford a goal index of tho prosperity
of tho middle and lower classes. Hard times
and luck of employment invariably mako
themselves felt in delay or stoppage of payments, and tlm duration of stringent circumstances can readily bo measured by the way
the payments aro resumed. A furniture
dealer was interviewed by a reporter'
"What course do you tako in rase*.f delinquency in payments"'
"Thero is only ono advisable course, and
that is to tide over thoso who can't tako up
tlieir monthly notes. Tho public, I think, has
distorted views about the monthly payment
stores. Thero are, doubtless, somo sharks
among us, but most of us aim to do a fair,
legitimate business, charging but 10 per cent,
more for our goods that tho men who sell for
cash do. Taking back of goods is always
avoided, for thero is no money iu a sale if tho
stock haa to lie taken back and turned over to
tho auction stores. It is only the monthly
payment stores which keep second hand furniture that can profit by tho utter failure of
their patrons. Wo havo families that we
have carried along a year, and I doubt uot
that other monthly payment stores havo likewise. To harass patrons would be to work
against our owu interest. So fur as rates of
profit aro concerned, tho only element of Injustice in tbem Is ono of which tho public
rarely thinks. If the account runs a year tlio
10 per cent, extra wo charge is fair, for tho
risk, tho cost of collection, aud tho loss of interest from having money outstanding is fully
equal to tho additional rate of profit wo
Charge. Our margin of profit is computed so
as to include a year's interest on the regular
prices of the goods, but muny, possibly the
greatest number, of our acco.mts are closed
in a shorter time—six months, say Thus on
a purchase of $00 or $75 worth of goods, arranged so as to ho settled in six months, tbe
buyer pays 20 per cent, interest on tho
amount of tho bill for tho wholo period, whilo
be actually makes a payment of a sixth of the
bill when begets the goods and a similar payment every succeeding month. When the account runs for a year the burden is not so
heavy. If peoplo can pay cash thoy should,
and overy houest dealer in our lino of busi
ness will tell them so.
"It is unquestionably true that tho form of
payment is a temptation to purchase beyond
the means to pay. We havo uo trouble iu
selling. Our greatest difficulty is to keep the
hill down to what wo consider a safe limit.
People do uot stop to think that they pay for
then' privilege of making Installments at a
tolerably high rate. One reason of this lack
of judgment is probably becauso women do
so much of tho buying at tho monthly payment stores. They often fail to estimate
carefully what they can do, and tho result is
that thoy become a source of trouble to
themselves and us. Often, too, men who
wero drawing good salaries at the tune of the
purchase, get out of work soou after, and
any miscalculation on tlieir part makes payment nn uphill work. Tho spread of tho
payment stores has been suprising. Almost
every largo city now has a number of such
concerns, which seem to do more than
their ordinary share of business. In Chicago I doubt if there nro ns many
as there were two or three years
ago. The reason of this is not that the scheme
does not work successfully, or that there have
sprung up too many for tho population. Tho
capital required for such a business is much
greater than that which is requisite for a cash
trade. It was a common practico for dealers
to realize on their monthly notes at Ii or 3 per
cent, a month. They were unablo t;> carry
their own paper, or borrow at legal rates, and
tho result was that a number of concerns havo
failed during tho last year or two. I think it
is aU nonsense to talk of tho monthly payment Btoros cutting into the regular trade
disastrously. Wo catch a class of patrons
who wonld not deal at a cash store, since they
would not bo likely to save up the necessary
money. I believo that monthly payment
stores are on incentive to thrift and economy,
second only to the building associations."—

Om- Postal System.
If thoro Is any point on which our postal
system does not stand iu need of Improvement it Is In the cheapness of postage. Our
newspapers aro carried within the county of
their publication for nothing, nud everywhere-eUo for next to nothing, and a letter
of an ounce weight Is transported from any
point to any other of our enormous area of
3,000,000 square miles for the smallest unit of
letter postage known in Christendom. But a
far moro important matter, and ono wholly
neglected, is that of postal delivery. In other
civilized countries tho postoffice, receiving a
letter from tho writer, undertakes to deliver
it to the person addressed.
Iu our own happy land tho postoffice receives tho letter, and (except in the case of a
privileged 20 per cent, of tho peoplo) undertakes to carry it to within five or ten miles of
tho person addressed, and keep it there till
called for. This ia tho mero barbarism of
postal service, worthy of tho dark ages before
Rowland Hill. Tho enormous cost and loss
which it involves becomo obvious to any one,
on a fow minutes'reflection. For example:
A man living threo miles from tho postoffice
Is anxiously expecting a letter of great Importance, which may arrive any time within
a. fortnight. Ho goes daily to look for it, and
on tho sixth dny ho gots it. That letter cost
him twelve hours of walking, or six hours of
travel for himself and horse. In other words,
tho postage on tbat lotter hns been virtually
$3.03, or moro. Tho government does not get
tho money, but tho citizen loses it.—Dr. Bacon
In Forum.
Hot Water.
"Tho soothiug effects of hot water are not
fully appreciated," said a physician the other
day. "I recommend it to many of my pa-
tints who suffer from insomnia, produced by
nervous irritation of tho stomach, and also
for certain forms of indigestion. Many of
tbem object to it, ut flrst, but soon come to
liko it and aro generally much benefited by
it. A glass of hot water now aud then will
work no appreciable good, of course, but a
steady habit uf hot wntor drinking ouce
formed, and sustained regularly for a fow
months, works wonders with certain constitutions. I generally recommend its uso just
beforo going to bed. It is a great soother.

was only external.11—New York Tribune.

Ice Cold Milk Shake at Pimbury's,
An inquest was held yesterday by .1.
.1. Planta, Coroner for the district, on the
body of J. Kemp, of Departure Bay, who
came tn his death through injuries received from being thrown out of his
buggy on Friday night. The following
jury was empanelled; D. Hoggan (foreman), E. Williams, L, Page, J. Dever.
Walter Thompson and W. Norris,
The Coroner and jury proceeded to
Departure Bay to view the body nntl
after being sworn in repaired lo tbe
schoolhouse. Mrs. Kale Austin, sworn,
testified that that her husband, Henry
Austin, worked on the Departure Bay
wharf, but at present was away prospecting. Last Friday I assisted deceased
to pack up some articles left in Mr.
Dunsniuir's house and alter placing them
on the steamer Isabel to be taken to Victoria deceased and I drove to town in a
buggy, towing a carriage behind. The
carriage was also to be sent down to
Victoria on the steamer Isabel but could
not be placed on board at Departure Bay.
After placing the carriage on the wharf
deceased discovered he had forgotten a
valise which was to be sent to Victoria so
while he was taking it to the steamer |I
drove the buggy to the Palace Hotel and
a man tied tbe horse to a post for me.
Mrs. Morrell accompanied me to a druggists store and then I returned with her
to the hotel and wc went up stairs and
had some beer. Deceased was talking to
a man in the hallway when we returned.
Deceased and I then'drove out to the new
cemetery and afterwards to the Half-Way
House, where we had a glass of beer each.
I leceaseil was sober. We then drove on
with the intention of calling at Godfrey's
ranch which is past the Somerset House.
We could not find the place so turned
hack as it was getting dark. On our return, wben near the Somerset, deceased
asked me to hold the horse while he got
out. As be got into the buggy the horse
turned and his foot slipped, but he did
not get hurt there. We then called at
the Somerset, and he had u glass of beer,
and I drank soda water. Wo then drove
on to the Comox road at a moderate
pace, and in turning to enter the Departure Bay road the buggy upset and we
were thrown out. I was knocked sense-
leas and wben 1 regained consciousness
I found myself between the wheels of the
iiuggy. I gradually pulled myself out
and said, "Kemp, where arc you?" I
received no answer, but heard heavy
breathing like a snore. He was lying on
the road, not entangled with the buggy.
1 shook him antl then moved him a little
for fear the horse might get restive, but
he did not speak. He was alivo. bul not
conscious. I then ran to the Wellington
Hotel for help which was quickly sent
from the hotel. Tb" buggv capmed (0
the right.
To the Foreman—There was nothing
that I know of for tbe bugs* to strike.
To the Coroner—The deceased was
taken to Dr. Ebert's residence in the
same buggy that we drove in.
The inquest was then adjourned till tomorrow at 4 p. m.
The Coroner and Jury then drove to |
Dr. Ebert's residence at Wellington and
were informed by the Doctor that a post
mortem examination  was necessary to i
determine if   deceased's   brain  was  injured.
The po3t mortem will take place to-.lay
nt Departure Bay.
A scratch match was played yesterday
afternoon in the field, near Chinatown',
lent by Mr. Robins for the purpose.
Messrs. Hawthornthwaite and I'ilking-
ton captained the opposing teams. The
bowling of Messrs. Hodgson and Hawthornthwaite on the one sitle, and Messrs.
l'ilkington and Harvey Johnson on the
other, was of a high order, and would
doubtless be very effective on a ground
I in fairly good condition.
Mr. il. Cooper's graceful style of but—
i ting was the subject of much comment,
| and hit] score of IS was the highest obtained by the players on his side. Mr.
Hawthornthwaite also made two or three
fine drives. For the other side Messrs.
l'ilkington and Dixon scored 8 and Iii
respectively. Mr. Hawlhorntlnvaite's
eleven ultimately won the match by two
runs.   The full scores being 4ft and 47.
There was a fairly large gathering of
spectators, the sombre hues of male garments lieing enlivened by the brighter
colours worn by the sprinkling of ladies
who were present. The field, as a whole,
is admirably suited for a cricket ground,
but will require much rolling and turfing
before il is a safe, or pleasant one, on
which lo play. The pitch to-day was
simply execrable, in spite of the eoeoa
matting laid down, antl we fear that the
only plan by which a really good club can
be created is to raise and sod a square of
at least thirty yards, as "swampland,"
besides being very "dead," is subject to
"lifting nnd falling," owing to the action
of frost and heat.

me at the thought.    I was young and in

low nothing to make me look  like a tow-
ard in the eyes of MacDermott.     "Yes, j
sir," 1  answered  most laconically.     "1
will do it." It would take me two'nights
and a day to reach "Walba Vale."    We |
were to start at sundown that night, rest
the whole of the next day in the heat,

daybreak of tlio following morning; so it

Tweed, a splendid collie  1 had brought
from the old country.
Sundown came, and off we set in a respectable and orderly   manner,   Tweed,
like the colonel, eyeing his  corps with
keen criticism.     For  the first six hours
wo marched well.   It  was  nearly  full
moon at this time, and  1 could not help
fancying,   as   the   moon would now and
again emerge from a cloud, that there
were either ghosts, phantoms, or images
of shadow-land of some kind dodging our
Steps.     1 even thought I saw and heard
figures of some kind flittering near us,
but called myself a coward and a fool for
my pains. Tweed, however, did not seem
altogether at his ease; he kept  close  to
my heels, whining now antl then with a
dissatisfied expression. The sheep looked
tired, so about one in the morning, as wc
reached a clearing, down we all camped
for an hour or two.     Fortunately, water
was near, as it was tdose to sn artificial
tank put there for the beenfit of travellers
like ourselves.   1 lit my lire,   1   lit   my
pipe,   gave  Tweed   directions about the
sheep, and, soon   lost   in the thought of
home and old companions, I fell into a
light sleep.     I  was suddenly awakened
by  a  long   low growl from Tweed, and
looking round, I could hardly have imagined
a more weird-looking scene.    The tall, bare
trunks of the Australian trees environed   us,
each one looking like a ghosl in thc moonlight,   and  surely—yes,  surely—'.here  were
figures  appearing  antl disappearing with  a
i light fantastic sort of step that set my weak
i heart heatiig most uncomfortably; but soon
I all was ]>crfectly still, and again I chastised
! myself mentally.
The night had deen airless and hot, and a
horrible sense of thc near presence of unseen j
enemies seemed   to   suffocate  me.     I  had
taken the precaution of loading two rounds j
of my revolver.    If it was a native ambush !
that dogged  my steps,   I would be  ready, j
and the unknown power of firearms was the
one  thing that   kept  them in check by the
settlers.     Again  wc camped,    The sheep,
very  tired,   were soon   perfectly   it'll,   but |
nothing would satisfy Tweed.     He lay close
at my feet, giving restless moans and whines.
I lit my tire anil pipe, but could  not sleep.
Again the fond faces of home came before eiy
vision,   when   ah!   Tweed!    what was the
matter with him?    He crept closer to me,
a spring;
and 1 knew that, whatever happened, Tweed
must keep close to me, or it would be death !
to kin.  "Down, Tweed, down," I whispered, i
raising   myself oa   one knee, and  looking
cautiously round, one hand grasping his neck,
and the other my revolver.    What kail happened to the  trees?  They almost seemed ttt
move,  aad looked so thick antl black in the
moonlight,   till—awful   revelation!—I   saw
that each one had a native behind it!
Silence now was my role, antl wailing. I [
would not be the first to attack. I looked al
the sheep for a moment, antl saw that the
Ambush lay around them, and in that mo-
meat the first advaice was made. A little, i
delermined-lookiog savage stepped out, followed by a band of sooty followers. "Down,
Tweed, down," .gain 1 whispered; or he
would have beea at their throats in an instant.
Brandishing their weapons, on they came,
uncertain whether I had firearms or not.
"Patience," I said to myself, ultcr'y astonished at the coolness now that had taken
possession of nc. "Don't kill a man if you
can kelp it;" but with a war-yell that resounded through the busk, on came the
leader frantic with rage and gesticulation.
Quickly rising to my feet, with one steady
aim I fired, tnd down dropped the man at t'.ic
leader's side. Consternation took possession
of tke band, and they quickly retired, dragging their comrade's body away, and I as
quickly reloaded, patted Tweed, and agaii
waited. Oh, the agony of that moment!
Would I never see home again, seemed lobe
my one thought, and it goaded mc to action
and determination to sell my life dearly.
Half an hour had not passed before
back came the frantic little leader, supported by a big bodyguard of followers.
I had my six chambers loaded, pretty
sure I would need tbem all, and at a de-
tarmined advance again I fired, once!
twice! three! till tbe still morning air
was filled with the terrible yells of dying
men. Again they retired, dragging their
dead eomrrdes with them, andl took my
remaining time nml strength to reload. I
saw clearly how that these savages would I . ,~
be utterly disorganised if their leader A house In the middle ward with five

to aim for him at once. Daylight now jCorrtiKii Office,
was coming in, anil once more back they
mustered, the leader in front ns before.
Once! twice! three! again 1 fired, and
as often a man dropped, but
still there in the front was that furious
little demoniacal-looking object coming
on straight in the teeth of my revolver.
Looking liim full in thc face I fired.
Good heavens! bad it missed, hung fire,
or what? and it was my last shot. 1 felt
his breath hot on my face, when, in a
moment he was rolling nt my feet in
death agonies. What was it or who wns
it thnt was grasping bis throat like a
vice? Ah, Tweed, my noble dog! now
was his time for action and he did not
spare mv enemy.
A rustling in the scrub? or was it only
the sighing of the wind through branchless trees? or oh! was it the enemy at
our heels again? No, it was none of
these things; but presently I heard a
long low whistle, and then, plunging out
of a thicket beside me came Maida,
Mackintosh's dog. In another moment
the dear old fellow himself caught me in
bis arms, and   I   was  surrounded   by
