Unit much damage has already been
done by high water, and what may follow no one cares to predict. A great
volume of water has fallen in this part of
the country in the past two days, and all
the streams are bank full. Telegraphic, telephone, and railroad conuminica-
cations are very seriously interfered with

at the rate of Ik feet per hour. Half a
dozen bridges have been swept away,

stand the strain, and that 228,000.000
feet of logs, valued at over five millions
of dollars, will be carried awav on the
flood, The river is rising rapidly here,
and by morning it will probably be 20
feet above low water mark. The Beech
Creek railroads have idreudy sustained
losses that will aggregate *.25,OO0.

WHERE IS TIIE EUROPEAN WAR-
CLOUD TO BURST f
This is a question which judging by
our European mail just to hand, is agitating not only tbo supersensitive Paris
Bourse, but bus also affected quite appreciably, thu greater political steadiness
of the London Stock Exchange. From u
private letter received from ono of the
members of which Institution and wbo
wus formerly a well-known resident in
British Columbia, wc learn tbat one of
tbe chief reasons tbat may be assigned for
this feeling of grave uneasiness, is the constantly recurring receipt of reports vague
enough in themselves, of impending difficulties between the Ameer of Aghanistan
and tbe Russians. Thoro is at nny rate
sufficient uncertainty about the situation
ia Central Asia, to make it perfectly possible for Bourse operators to avail themselves of It for tlieir own purposes.
The reports referred to como chiefly from
Russian sources, and a Russian source as
all the world knows is not a synonym
for a reliable source. Tho extreme "slop-
pine**" ol the statements that the Ameer
ig "taking measures -which clearly show
his ill-will to Russia," nnd his "breaking
off commercial relation^," is worthy of
the wolf in the fable, but it must bo admitted by all, that tbe further statement
that Russia will sooner or later (probably
sooner) be compelled te "take steps to
meet possible hostilities and repress any
attempt to disturb the peace" is not reassuring. Most of us whether bred in
Grout Britain or her colonies, know what
such "steps" mean, when Russia is the
stepper. The handful of men wbo for all
practical purposes mean Russia, know
well that their country's influence in the
lands bordering on Afghanistan is—in
spite of their much vaunted Trans-Caspian railway—ione of the strongest;
hence their desire to make as much show
oi authority as possible. The "steps
taken te meet possible hostilities" would
be not less effective as a warning to
Persia and Bokhara, than as n menaco
to Cabul and Candahar. Whether there
ia grave reason for apprehension or not,
this we at least know—if England's word
binds ber to-day as It has done in th*
past—that, whilo she will certainly not
back up the Autius In any ngres-
sive plans, she will have to
support him at any cost if he is attacked.
There are thoso who think that South
Best Europe may be the field where the
thnnder-cloud is to burst, and many signs
point to the fact that the fierce and final
contest botween the Turk and the Slav is
not far ofl.When It comes.wu have as little
doubt as to the victor as iu that other and
greater contest which must sooner or later
tako placo in the struggle for existence;
wo refer to tho deadly race hatred of the
whiteman for the yellow. These nre the
two points which seem to us the most
likely to be tho battlefield of the grent
Powers. That the possiblity of war ia
contemplated is most clearly shown by
England's action in offering such remarkable advantages, and in so urgent a manner to surgeons, with the view of inducing them to nt once, offer their professional services to both army and navy.

The Fast and the Loose.
I shall watch with deep concern the
future of the young writer of The Fast
and the Loose. Here we have an unflinching record of woman in her wildest
moods, great, golden, yet uncanny. The
chapter where Betsinda, with all her
lovers, commits suicide by leaping from
the old Indian ,Tumping-off Place, tbe
Leucadian Rock of Ithaca (New York
State), is unmatched in fiction. The flittering wings and the twittering voices of
the forgotten Sanowauiaa dead, of ancient braves and prehistoric equaws.
mingle with tlio kisses and the cries of
tho despairing heroine and her adorers;
the Civil Servant, the military man and
the Boss speculator. The scene, too,
where tbe beautiful Betsinda waters the
shares of the Topeka and Idaho Railway,
while they suddenly break verdantly
around her into fresh fragrance of flowers nnd melody of golden blossoms, is
equal to tbe purest idyl of Zola's,
though, porhups, too manifestly written
under the influence of Robert Louis
Stevenson. "The Revel in the Bowery," also, is a noble example of pure
romance, without any of that spasmodic
delight in mere bloodshed and butchery
for its own snke which is so infallible
nn evidence of literary feebleness. No;
here every stroke of the bowie-knife is a
stroke of genius.

where tbere were none a generation ago;
and till supply a greater abundance of
news than was ever got together before.
Here and there, too, the older journals
bave taken a better tone; but others are
sinking in character, and the most remarkable thing about tbe newspaper
press as a whole is the reintroduction of
of some of the worst vices that disgraced
it in bygone times, and its infection by
new ones.
It is not that, the newspaper press is
less clever than it used to be. Though
what was known as "weighty" writing
has almost disappeared from the daily
news-sheet, of cleverness there is plenty.
But, for the most part, it is a shallow,
flippant sort of cleverness, sometimes
mischievous in its inspiration, and we
own rather vulgar in its methods,. In a
brief article like this it is impossible to
show at length how true these accusations nro; but we think thai newspaper
readers will hold with us that demonstration js needless.

Every man now-a-dnys if he can rend
or write imagines himself a critic. The
old style of reviewing by mere professional critics ls clearly obsolete. It is
manifest that frtntio political agitators,
dukes, actors, interesting criminals, and
people ol every description, arc
the persons whoso opinions on books
nre really worth having.
We giye one or two samples of reviews
we have recently read iu the " Saturday" :—
I.
A Hundred to One.
The volcanic question of the nge is not
Divorce' It is Polygamy. Why have wo
so many single womon ? Can nothing
be done to previde them with some more
congenial Held lor their energies than
cuts, canaries, and general confiscation ?
To this question America, always a little
too far In the front oven for me, answers
" Yes." Ono, at least, of the States (or,
if I ana in error whon I say "State," let
me substitute Territory, Dominion.Demc,
Arrondissement, or what you will), one
at least of America's froo Communities
answers " Yes." Since the last novel I
reviewed none has been more apt to
shake ihe foundations ofsocioty tbun A
Hundred to Om (Smith & Biigjiam :
Utah, Bait Lake. 1889), A Hundred to
One ll by a young widow lady, herself
one of the eentury of widows whom
Deacon Jidbdiak Gowlbs has left to the
kind consideration tt the Mormon Community. The story shows, in graceful
style (somewhat under the influence ol
BobbbtLouis Stbvsesos), the inadequacy ef the polygamous family to satisfy the
yearnings ol woman and to secure the
happiness ef man. I would be the last
to speak severely of any lady's work, and
in Mrf. Gowlbb's Hundred to One I gladly recognize a genial humor snd a resolute
courage. But I most denonnco the glaring and unchristian character of hor doctrine, and I de this with the more satisfaction that, owing to my advanced
period of life, I do not expect to sec
" Polygamy" beeome a popular cry in the
England of my time. Mrs. Gowi.es

News of importance is by no means so
plentiful as wo could wish it; otherwise
we should have been deprived of the
pleasure of conferring a little cheap
notoriety on tho writer of a letter in the
Free Press, signing himself "Yank"—
though why he should adopt such a nom
de plume we nre nt u loss to imagine,
when we hnve ourselves repeatedly henrd
him claim to be an Irishman. His opening sentence, where be refuses to accept
the undoubted authority we gave lor the
accuracy of our quotation, reminds us of
a well-known resident in British Columbia, who on several acknowledged authorities in his particular profession being
quoted against his opinion, replied
"Damn the authorities." This Irish
"Yank" goes on to quote somewhat at
length from Dickens—whether his quotation has point or no, we aro willing to
leave to the verdict of our readers. Why
this pscudo "Yank" should assert that
we advocate "iree trado in whiskey" we
are at a loss to understand, unless it is
that he feels nettled that we attempted
to strip the peacock's feathers from one
who is but a very strry jackdaw. We
did not advocate any such thing as "free
whiskey," though from what we know of
our Jackdaw's past nnd present history,
we should have thought that he would
have shunned the subject of "free
whiskey," as the Father of Evil io said
to shun holy water. He, "Yank," hopes
that tlie CouniKR will be excluded from
tbe households of the good people of
Nanaimo on account of its pernicious
teachings. AU we can say as to the hope
is, tbat if the Courier should ever havo
the misfortune to be aB rigidly and as
justly excluded from any respectable
person's house as is "Yank," then indeed
we shall bavo renson lo despair.
A little paragraph which has beon going
the round ef thc English press tells ns of
the enormous multiplication of newspapers in (Great Britain. From It we
learn tbat theso numbers testify to a
vastly increased demand for the news of
the day, an enormously increasing
appetite for the discussion of public
affaire, and unlimited activity in satisfying both. Bnt whether the supply is a
wholoBome one is another matter, and a
very important one. Since we arc all so
much better informed than our. forefathers, and so much wiser in affairs
political and social, a nobler supply as
well as a moro abundant one might have
been expected. Or if the demand was
too urgent to be answered at once by a
uniformly better article, what we might
reasonably look for is improvement as
times go on; especially a s the standard of
education amongst newspaper readers
must be supposed to rise constantly and
in appreciable measure. But what nre
the facts? "Is the newspaper press of
Great Britain or America more respectable for taste, temper, nnd intelligence
than it was twenty or flve-and-twenty
years ago? Or if the newer journals
rise to no distinction for these qualities,
do they shine as before in the older
sheets? And at this moment is the general tendency upward or downard?
With the best will in the world to speak
well of modern journalism, it is impossible to answer all of these questions affirmatively." No doubt there are many
newspapers of a comparatively good kind

NYE   AT   NIAGARA.
■• Brs.es a Storm and Interview. Po-
comoco.
We visited tho falls oa the day of the blizzard
which wrecked Reading and which wound
np by tipping the suspension toot bridge at
Niagara Into the river below. The fall* have
been visited in summer and In winter, in the
broad glare of day and the soft and mellow
moonlight, but very few people have gone
there during a blizzard.
The day broke moist and measly at Buffalo, ■
but at noon the gray and choppy clouds scat- j
tered a little and a patch ot sky could now
and then be discovered.   Eating a hasty meal,
our party, arrayed in alpenstocks and con- j
sclous   rectitude,   began  tbe   ascent   from
Buffalo by a circuitous route.   We reached
Niagara Falls station, whence we proceeded
by drosky to our chalet.    Here we alighted. |
The chalet Is kept by a native American, and
after our long journey from Buffalo it was
good to once more hear the music of our own
language.   Hastily eating a light lunch, we :
put on our topcoats, and in charge of a John
Darin we proceeded by diligence towards tho i
falls via the American side.
Tho storm now burst upon us In all its
fury, and the rain descended in the wildest
profusion, saturating tho falls and rendering
tlioin well nigh Impassable. Our muleteer
covered himself with his pontoon, wrapped
his tarpaulin around his ears, and while our
slender diligence swayed in the blast he
drove us across to Goat Island. Tho thunder
of tho Immense volume of water was now
swallowed up by the mighty roar ot tho
bursting tempest, and then, as it died away
like tho wail of a perishing soul, one would
again hear the sullen thunder of the great
American dam site.
We now began tho descent on the sido of
Goat Island looking towards the Great Ilorso
Fall. The rain fell in torrents, and as our
umbrellas had boon turned wrong sido out by
the blast, wo were soon wet to the skin. There
we stood in the presence of the greatest spectacle America can produce, perhaps, outside
of congress. Like an egotistical author Niagara for centuries has been pouring over its
own works. It is really, however, beyond
criticism. I went thero thinking that If the
Falls really deserved scathing, I would scath
them through tho press and Injure their business; but I must say tbat, like Mr. Booth,
they deservo thoir great success, and I do not
blame them for respecting themselves and
having their pictures taken every littlo while
and gottlng their names in the papers. Thoy
deserve all tbe glory they have got, aud far
be it from me to put a straw in tbe way of
the progress of Niagara Falls.
We next went down to tho Whirlpool, and
on the way a detachment of John Dunns escorted us with an air of suspicion. Our
drosky driver, evidently' watched us every
moment like a cat. At the whirlpool we
alighted again, being narrowly watched by
tho driver and a John Darni from Cohoes.
Here as we reached |the brink of tho cliff
the blizzard struck us amidship, and the
great Niagara which has assisted so many
temperance lecturers In scaring to death the
moderate drinker seemed to become silent In
the presence of old Mi'. Blizzard, from the
wild and unkempt-west. Just then my high
■ilk hat, which I wear in ascending tho Alps
and doing the tourist act generally, went up
Into a large blue hole in the sky, and while I
was watching it the square red remark,
"Keep off the grass," with an iron rod on one
side, swatted me across tbe organ of alinien-
tivenees.
The storm was now at Its height Tho roof
of the hotel gently lifted with the breeze, and
through the fast falling rain we could see a
surprised gentleman In his room just emerging through the neck band of a bright new
shirt. With a look of horror and wondor be
tried to pull down the roof again and conceal
himself, but ho could not do so.
Tho storm now took off its coat and
shrieked, while tho Whirlpool was lashed to
it* greatest fury, and at tho Whirlpool bazar
genuine Indian moccasins, made in Connecticut, went down to (3 a pair. I mado a movement towards tbe brink of tho precipice, intending to peer down over it into tho boiling
waters, when I felt the grasp of a gendarme
on my shoulder and I was jerked back with
an oath which would have sworn In a whole
precinct of non-residents at a presidential
election.
"Monsieur fool heemself!" said tho John
Dorm in pure Buffalo French, with a slight
patois of the Rue de Main street. Then
grinding his teeth he managed to make me
understand that I had stated in Buffalo that
"I was going over tbe falls and through the
whirlpool," but that a nemesis was on my
trail. It Is very disagreeable to have your
trail stepped on by a nemesis, and so I explained that I meant to be flgurativo, and so,
when the John Darin had opened my overcoat and found that I was not dressed in
tights with double leaded bridge jumping
shoes, he allowed me to pass. It was here at
ths bazar that I met my old friend Foco-
moco, of the Flute tribe of Indians. "And
what are you doing hore, so far away from
home, Focomocol" I asked, in the light running domestic accents of the Piute tongue.
"I am here," he replied In the same language, "to procure our regular supply of
Indian relics for the coming year. We cannot compete any longer with Connecticut In
the manufacture of genuine Indian relics.
Bo wo como to Niagara Falls for them. We
alto get most of our ornamental bead work
dona in ifre}***, and our ornamental mas-

Senator Matt Ransom is back from North
Carolina, happy over his re-election and handsomer than ovor. His pose for the galleries
is strengthened by some now elements. A
brother senator who congratulated Ransom
on his re-election slipped back into tho cloak
room and told this story:
"I never seo Matt Ransom without thinking of an incident they tell about down in bis
own neighborhood. They bavo tho biggest
fair in tho stato there. One year a lank, lean
mountaineer brought a horse down to tbo
fair. It was blind, spavined and had the
glanders, A sorrier looking beast couldn't bo
found In tbat country. Tho horse dealer
showed his paces all around tho track.
" 'Take a look,' be cried, 'at the finest boss
in Northampton county.'
"He had gone half way around the track
when a man came up to bim and said:
"I'Look heah, stranger, that boss is blind.'
" 'Can't help It, it's tho finest boss in
Northampton county,'and tho mountaineer
passed on a littlo further. Somobody else
struck him and said:
" 'Hello, there, that boss is lame.'
"Still the mountaineer called out:
" 'Take a look at tlio finest boss In Northampton county.'
"He bad got around tbo circle when Matt
Ransom mot him. Thinking ho would have
somo fun the senator went up and said:
" 'That tho finest borso in Northampton
county! Why, it's lanio, blind, and wheezes
liko thunder.   What aro its good points?'
"The mountaineer sized tlio senator up,
changed bis cud of tobacco, and said:
" 'Can't help that, boss; its name is Matt
Ransom, and it's on stylo.   That makes
lt tho finest boss in Northampton county.' "—

""That piece of paper isn't worth shucks, is
It?" queried n stranger as bo handed a check

"No, sir," was tho reply aftor a brief

"It Is signed John Smith."
"I seo it Is."
"He's a fraud?"
"I think so. Whero did you get the
check?"
"At tho depot. Lent a party *20 to get off

"You have been conlldenced."
"I know it. I know it halt an hour ago.

said I'd lot somo one mako a fool of me."
"And you have,"
"I have. Turned out just as he said. Say,

A Cuiiliillnrj   Wife  Give*   Her   Husband  a
Genuine Surprise,
"1 bad not intended to tell you, BUligar,*1
said the young wife of Mr. McSwat, "but 1
cant keep a secret any longer."
"I* it possible, Lobelia," exclaimed BUllger,
mcredulously, "that you bave been able to
keep a secret at all?"
"It Is. And you would never guess lt,
either.''
"Been making me a dressing gown or on
embroidered night cap?"
"No."
"You haven't been running up a bill at
Spotcasb & Co.'si" he inquired, with a suspicions look and a cold feeling lu tbe region of
his spine.
"Guess again."
"Been taking lessons at a cooking school I"
be asked, paling visibly.
"No.   Guess again."
A clammy perspiration broke out all over
htm and he leaned against tne mantel for sup
port as ho gasped:
"Lobelia, is Aunt Jubilee coming to spend
tbe summer with us?"
The young wife laughed gleefully.
"No," she answered. "You'll bave to try
again, BUllger."
"Tell me what lt is," be said, with returning self command. "I feel as If I could stand
any disclosure now."
"I think you're real mean, BUllger, but 1
will tell you. A little poem of mine 1* going
to be published In the next Century Haga
zlno."
"Whew I"
(This is the time honored way in which a
long, low whistle of astonishment has always
been represented In print by the most successful wrestlers with tbe language, from the
Old Masters down to B. Rider Haggard. Tht
reader, tliereforo, will kindly understand
that Mr. BUllger McSwat gave utterance to
a loug, low whistle.)
"In the days of our courtship, Lobelia," be
continued, staring bard at the ceiling, "you
never told me you wrote poetry. I didn't
know you were addicted to it, or"—
"Or what?" she demanded, with some asperity.
"Nothing—nothing |" be exclaimed, hastily.
"And so you ai o*Jb have a contribution in
the next Century I How much is the editor
to pay you for it, Lobelia?"
*'I don't know. I haven't beard from bim
yet,"
"Then how do you know he ts going to
print itt"
"How do I know) Because be hasn't returned It. I sent tt to htm nearly two weeks
ago.**
"Ol Yon did I You Inclosed stamps for re-
turnpostage, of ocsB-sel"
"Why, rio,.Bllllgor. 1 never thought of
that   u it customary I"
"Er—nol That is, not always," replied tht
young husband, mastering tut emotion by a
desperate effort "It probably wasn't meal
sary tn the case of your poem, Lobelia And
you bave saved at least two cental"
Mrs. McSwat was not exactly ture whether
be was In earnest or not She looked at htm
with some suspicion, but his countenance
wore tbat look of unearthly gravity and Innocence that may sometimes be teen on the face
of a boy at school just after he had rolled a
double handful of bird shot over the floor.
"Lobelia," be said, after a pause, "you
haven't spoken of this—this poem of yours
that Is—er—ah—going to be printed next
month to anybody else besides me, have you I"
"No."
"Then dont do It, Lobelia," be said.   "If
an manage to bold In till tht poem Is
Ed, which" - and BUllger held hts
orchlof to bis face aad coughed convulsively in it for a few moments—"which wUl
be only two weeks longer, you know It will
be all tbe greater surprise to everybody. And
wben that poem is printed In tht magazine,
my dear, I'll make you a present of a pair of
diamond earrings."
The trusting young wife pillowed her bead
on his bosom m an ecstasy of gratitude, and
as BUllger McSwat smoothed her golden hair
and murmured In her ear soft assurances of
his willingness to bankrupt himself, if necessary, In order to give her costly presents as a
token of his prido and admiration—as soon as
the poem appeared—be could feel himself
growing meaner, and smaller, and more despicable every moment
O young wivesl Be warned in time.
When temptations to write poetry fox the
magazines assail your souls do not yield. Resist them. It is a terrible thing to do anything that causes young husbands to feel
themselves growing smaller than ther art

The Whole Town Caught the Idea When
It Was Too Late. ,
When I entered the village, situated among
tne hills of New York, nt 10 o'clock lu the
morning, all wa* peaceful and serene, and tho
pocket of every man who walked the streets
bad chink in It When I left, at 4 p. nt, an
excited mob bad possession of the main street
and every other man was dead broke.
About noon a man arrived from tho uorth
In a buggy. Ho said he Was a drover and
looking for bogs. He bought half a dozen l«v
fore be ate dinner, and it was astonishing
how closely be guessed at their livo weight.
He wss within two pounds on four of tbem
and only half a pound more on the others.
These had been an attraction for a crowd of
Idlers, and the general verdict was that the
drover wa* a* sharp as a barber's razor. Soon
after dinner a farmer looking boy drove a
hog Into town and staked him out in front of
the tavern. A* he wanted to sell and the
drover wanted to buy, .hey soon came together.
"Might take him on a pinch, but he's only
a nubbins," said the drover as be sized the
porker up.
"Hubblns! Why, that pig goes over 200
pounds!" exclaimed the owner.
"Can't staff me, boy I've been In the
business twenty years."
"No one want* to stuff. Tbat 'ere bog goes
toTttO." «j
"He does, ehl Wish your father had come
in. I'd liko to mado a bet with htm. Boy,
you ought to have better judgment That
hog won't pull down 180."
"Guess you are off, too," remarked a
stranger who had quietly driven up in a
buggy "I've raised hogs all my life, and
that boy hain't five pounds out of bis guess."
"Ain't he) Raised hogs, have youl Ever
raise any money!"
"A little."
"Perhaps you'd like to bet on that hog?"
"Perhaps."
"Have you got (20 as says he goes S00!"
"I have—fifty—a hundred 1"
"Tben let's chalk.   Anybody can blow."
It was a chance to make a dollar, and the
citizens Improved lt Tbe man In the buggy
was an accommodating chap, and somehow
or other the farmer boy managed to fish up
about a hundred doliarB from the hind pocket
of his overalls. The citizens stuck by tho
drover, having abundant proofs of his Judg
ment, and when every man In that town wbo
had a loose dollar or could borrow one had
made his bet the hog was driven to the scales
and weighed.
"Gentlemen," said the drover just beforo
the weighing, "I was never deceived in my
life.  IU* hog won't go to 100 pounds."
"I'U take even bets that he goes over SOO,"
replied the man In the buggy.
Tnts bluff rated out the last nickel tn the
crowd, and tbe hog was driven upon the
scales. The record was 211 pounds. He was
weighed and rewelghed, but the figures
stood.
"Well, ltt my flrst error In a hog," sold tho
drover, and all bets wero at once handed over.
The fanner boy slipped out, the two men
drove off tn the buggy, and half an hour had
elapsed before a church deacon, who had laid
his ten with the drover and lost, suddenly
declared that it was a put up job to skin the
fcwn.
"Duru my buttons If it haln'tl" yelled 200
men tn chorus, but it was too late. The town
had been skinned, and the trio had escaped.
All the mob could do was to turn loose and

"What are you doing here, my lad?"
"Tending swine, sir." "How much do you

have a much better salary." "Tbat may be,
but then I suppose you have more hogs under
your care." The shepherd was about retiring when the boy continued: "Say, can God
do anything I" "Yes, my boy." "Can ho
make a 2-year-old colt tn two minutes?"
"Why," said the astonished bishop, "he
would not wish to do tbat, my boy." "But
If he did want to, could hei" insisted the boy.
"Yes, certainly, If he wished to." "What:

A Scrauton bachelor, who boards at one of
the hotels and rooms outside, got so tired of
eating stale eggs a while ago that be thought
he would seo if he couldn't change the programme a little. So he bought three dozen
new laid eggs and took them to his lodgings,
and when lie went to tea that night he carried
a couple of the eggs in bis pocket and told
the pleasant faced waiter girl to have them
boiled sort. They came back as bard as rocks,
and tbo bachelor boarder declared that no
one in that kitchen know enough to boil an
egg Tho handsome waiter girl said sbe was
sorry that the cook hadn't done as she bad
ordered her to, and she volunteered to havo
two other oggs boiled s. jff; but tbe boarder
told ber she needn't The next morning he
took two more eggs over to tbe hotel and
gavo sjiecial directions as to how they should
bo boiled, und bo had to swear when he
opened them, for they were as hard as base
balls.
At supper that night he took throe eggs,
got another girl to take his orders, and gave
tho same directions. Ilesult: Three eggB as
unyielding as bullets. Tho bachelor said he
guessed it was timo for htm to change his
boarding place, and he uttered othor unpleasant remarks regarding the interior management of tho i Unary department of the
houso. But ho was on hand the next morning, and ho had throe nice largo fresh eggs in
his [locket. Catting his favorite waiter girl,
he said:
"Now, 1 want you to 0|«n these eggs, drop
tbem iu hot water and (touch them very soft,
and. my dear, 1 want you to stand by them
and see that they nro cooked right."
Sho said sho would and away sho went, but
in a minute or so she returned looking Bad,
and with tho three eggs in six halves on a
dish.
"I am sorry, sir," sho said, and her light
soprano voico trembled, "but these eggs were
already boiled as hard as they could be when
I broke them," aud sho placed them on the
table tn front of tho irate bachelor.
He smelted a rat right away, and he left
tho table at once and started out to verify his
suspicions. His Investigations were finished
by the middle df the forenoon, and what he
found out was this: A married friend of bis,
who lived in tho house where the bachelor
had his lodgings, is a practical joker of the
first order. He had taken oil of the eggs to
hts kitchen, boUed them as hard as he could,
and then placed them back in the bachelor's
basket
"It's till right," saiil tbe bachelor to another
friend, "but I'U lay for bim with a trick
that'll make him hate himself like Satan for a

Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis ..rowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindustan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is im.
ported into the country, antl we shall be
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 salct
wc fancy their sojum there will be hut
evanescent. We could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhre,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as general Sedative, that have occurred
u'ntJLt our personal observation, during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed ils controlling power. We
have never used '.ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Itrowne's. from a firm
conviction thai it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty wc owe lo ihe pro]
fession and the public, as we nre ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than ColHs Itrowne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OE THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE

Powder

Northfli-lit Illlnc.
Near
President Brainard of the Hamilton
Powder Works has finally decided that a
powder mill is to be constructed in the
vicinity ol the Northfield Mine. The
Company will manufacture various kinds
of explosives, including black powder
and dynamite. They have acquired a
considerable tract of land from the Vancouver Coal Company, and the work of
clearing will commence as soon as possible. A small settlement will necessarily assemble around the works as they
will employ many hands. Mr. Brainard
expressed himself as quite satisfied that
the Nanaimo Powder Works will, at no
distant date, be one oi the largest of the
kind on this side of the Eocky Mountains,
the locality being specially adapted for
the purpose owing to the vast mineral
wealth of British Columbia.
Knee Breeches.
It is said that a coterie of New York
bloods, representatives of Manhattan's
jeunnette aoree, are- getting up a petition
to Robert Lincoln, Minister to England,
praying him to adopt knee breeches at
the court of St. James, thus setting an
authoritative example for the drawing-
rooms'of the redoubtable 400.
Eepublican simplicity in the way of
attire has been the V0llst of American
Ministers abroad, ever since our Republic
was founded. Representatives of other
powers might deck themselves out in
satin breeches and silk stockings, with
all manner of gilt and lace trimmings,
gay ribbons and imposing decorations,
but a Minister of tbe United States of
America was satisfied with baggy
"pants," a shad-belly black coat and a
white choker. That's the way James
Buchanan and Edward Everett appeared
in "the scarlet courts of Westminster."
"When Benjamin Franklin was Minister to France the old philosopher became
quite gay, and decked himself out in so
much French finery as to offend some of
his more austere friends, but his example
has not been followed. Subsequent
Ministers to France have been quite
Bevere in the simplicity of their attire.
Whether Minister Lincoln will yield to
the call of our golden youth and become
the champion of social knee breeches
remains to be seen.—Te.ras Siftings.

PEES0NAL.
U'. H. Colby, test medium, gave an interesting lecture on Spiritualism last
night. He also answered various questions that were written on paper antl
handed to him. One question was,
"What is your idea of the "Single Tax
Question?" The lecturer said he believed it would raise man to a higher
point than lie had ever held beiore. That
is my idea of the Single Tax question. I
am a single tax mnn from the crown of
my head to the soles of my feet. There
are questions connected with the single
tax business that reach far into the future. Another question was, "How is
my departed relative?" To that quesiion
the lecturer made answer that, as his relative was in life so he was now, if happy
on earth, lie is happy in bis present
sphere.
On the subject of God, man, and immortality, the lecturer said that a man
being a" creative power, partook of the
immortality of God and the relations
they bear to one another nre so
closely combined that it would be difficult to dissever them. The God of the
Bible is a very different God to the one
wens spiritualists believe in. He (the
lecturer) did not wish to say anything to
intioy the Christian world, at the same
time he believed they had many errors
iu their mode of carrying out tlieir work
of Christianity.
The lecturer said it was difficult to get
anything in the shape of tests without
several cavillers saying that the medium
was acting in collusion with others in the
room or outside.
He preferred to do that sort of thing in
private as, though lie was a philanthop-
lst in his way and liked to give anvone
useful information, he also had a little
touch of tlie mercenary in him, and
wished to get as much of their money
possible for the information he supplied.
There is u name ringing in my ears,
said the Medium, it is that of Angus McMillan, does any one know him?
C- Lockhnrt supplied the information
that he died about ten years ago.
Again the Medium heard a name, this
time it was that of Edwin Gough. Somebody in the audience said lie died some
time ago.
Mr. Colby said it was impossible to go
through a meeting without making some
errors, and he was glad to hear that
some one had known Mr. Gough.
The next name mentioned by the
Medium was that of W. G, Hoy, whose
spirit seemed to hover somewhere about
a gentleman named Watson, who disclaimed all knowledge of him. No one in
the audience seemed to have heard of
him either.
The spirit of a lady named Hannah
Watts expressed a desire to supply some
information that no one else could, but ns
nobody knew her she had to keep it.
The Lecturer then said that to-morrow
(Saturday) he hoped to see a large audience composed of all the clergy and
Christians, Infidels and Spiritualists in
the town, and ho would endeavor to win
them to a belief in Spiritualism by
basing his lecture on the Bible.
A collection was taken up during the
evening.
The meeting then adjourned.

[From our Own Correspondent.J
J. A. McPhee, who has been sick for
some time, is now much better. He is
clearing several town lots near the sawmill, whicli are selling rapidly at about
$40 each.
Several new buildings are being built
in Coinox, and the town is increasing in
size considerably. The inhabitants say
they have great faith in Comox as being
one of the future important dties of B.C.
The Union Mines are being pushed ahead
and several new houses are being put up.
Our informant says that the baby show
did not come oil on the 24th of Mny owing there not being a jnan in Coinox
brave enough to accept the position of
of judge and Bland off the mothers of the
babies who did not come up to the standard.
F' Nunn, who is now staying in Coinox
and who has a ranche higher up the
coast, was for a long time the champion
long distance runner of Ireland, and the
various members of his family for several
years held that position.
Sea trout are reported us being very
plentiful at the month of Oyster River,
and several parties have enjoyed excellent sport there. Some very large fish
were taken one day last week. The fish
are described as biting very freely.
This may induce some of our local disciples of Izaac Walton to take a short
trip to that locality, and doubtless they
will be well rewarded. The sickness that
has prevailed for some time around
Comox has abated, and hopes are entertained that now summer has set in there
will be no repetition of it.
Mr. Kirby recently shot a large bear
near a swamp on his ranche.
The hay crop will be very large this
year if present prospects hold out.
Other crops, wheat, oats, potatoes, Ac
are all doing exceptionally well owing to
the wet spring which gave them a good
start.

The modes of death's approach arc various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the Throat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
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 the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to thc lungs
producing Consumption and to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
death. At the onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
attention is dangerous and may lost . .i
life. As soon as you feel that scmj.mng i
wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nost rds
obtain a bottle of Boschee's German Syrup.
It wiil give you immediate relief:

Two Good Stories.
Congressman John Allen, of Mississippi,
says that tho mendicants of Washington
amuse him very much, and that, while they
do not often "got away with bim," one did
prove too much for him the other day. "I
was sauntering down Pennsylvania avenue,"
saM th" humorous Allen—"I always love to
saunter when the weather will permit—and 1
was tackled by four beggars before I had
walked eight blocks. The flrst one addressed
me as 'captain.' But he didn't reach me.
The next one, who looked awfully troubled,
and who swore he hadn't had a mouthful to
eat all day, addressed me as 'major.' But
that wouldn't work. Then a fellow tenoned
me on tbe arm and.called me 'judge;' but he,
too, failed completely to reach my pocket-
book. Finally, just as I was wondering
whether I should go into the eenato chamber
and find out wbo were getting the big plums
under this administration, a twedylooking
fellow stepped right in front of mo and said:
" 'Senator, I won't detain you but a moment.   I am in hard luck'	
"And beforo I knew lt that little piece of
flattery had yanked a quarter of a dollar out
of my pocket."
"Thisepisode," continued the Mississlpplau,
"reminds me of a littlo colloquy between the
famous Bishop Polk of Tennessee, after having taken his seat at a table in a Washington
hotel, and tho waiter who was ever on the
alert for tips, and wbo know he had a dis
tiuguished man to serve.
" 'What kin I do for you, cap"nF he Inquired.
" 'I am not a captain,' sold tho bishop.
" 'Well, ls you a majab, sab?'
" 'No; I am not a major.'
" 'You mus' bo a gon'ral, deal"
" 'No; I om not a general.'
" 'You doesn't look like a judge, boss.'
" 'I am not a judge, either.'
" 'Well, fo' de Lawd, boss, what ts you any
wayf
" '1 am a bishop.1
" 'I know'd you was on de top of the pilo,
somewhere, fo' su'ah.' "—Washington Cor.
