London, April 26.—Reports concerning the departure of M, Henri Rochefort
from Brussels and his arrival in England
have been conflicting and without doubt
were designedly no. It was given out at
lirst that be hail been left behind ih
Brussels, when Boulanger and his companions in exile left Belgium. Later—It
was reported that Valiant, editor, accompanied his chief in his English invasion
and still Inter this was denied. The facts
are that Rochefort wils left in Brussels and
came over yesterday, stealing into London last night very quietly and going
unobserved toMmliuni' Dieudonne's hotel
in Rider street. The reason for so much
secrecy and caution is that Rochefort feared a rough reception at the hands of an
English mob on account of tine numerous
anti-English utterances to which he has
given expression in his paper during the
lust 12 years or so. He was afraid his
delicate wish that the Mahdi might annihilate Gen. Wolseley and Mb command,
when the latter was conducting the
Egyptian campaign would stir up unpleasant resentment in English hearts
and cause his arrival on English soil to
be decidedly disagreeable. Rochefort had
a consultation with Gen. Boulanger this
morning at the hitter's hotel and remained with him for some time. Another
danger threatened Rochefort. Artist
Piloted, who lives, in London prepares to
renew the hostilities against him which
were broken oil' Inst February. I'ilotell
wanted to fight n duel with Rochefort,
because the latter wrote an insulting article critieisising Pilotell's caricature of
Boulanger. Rochefort would not fight
hut now the artist has him oh his own
ground, he may succeed in making it
lively lor the trenchant editor..

blow reaching Patsy's breast after which

Another clinch followed, both pounding

Cardiff looked tired.
Fourth round—Jackson's left came out
but was neatly stopped. He followed it
up by a jab 011 Cardiff's ribs. The battle
now waged hot, Jackson rushing the

on the stomach and head. Cardiff endeavored to return the hard compliments,
but bis blows were of slight effect.
Fifth round—The Australian again
opened the round with, two quick, lint
weak left bunders. Both men gave evidence of distress. Patsy did good work

of a jabbing nature. It was, however,
any man's tight at tbe end ol this round.

press itKi'Dirrs.
The time has about arrived when the
preBB of British Columbia should take
some action toward improving the quality of the press reports received by them.
These reports cost the press of this province a good round sum each month, and
we do not err when wc say that they me
not worth the price put upon tbem. The
cable news is the best, on the whole, and
but very little can lie said in its favor.
The veriest "rot," in many Instances, is
sent over the wires, and the newspapers
noUnt volent must use it, and the reading
public won't rend it after it hns been
printed. What does the general public
care if Princess So-and-So is betrothed to
Prince Stick-in-the-Minl, or that tbe
Duchess of Thingumbob has added to the
population of a little German squiredom.
It wont do. When a newspaper pays
for newB it wants news. It wants something interesting for its readers, and not
the nonsensical and often bald reports
which it receives.
As far as the American press report is
concerned, there is often much of what is
interesting to the reading public contained therein, and there are often many
things which neither Canadians or Americana care a fig nbout. As a matter of
fact being a province of the Dominion of
Canada, we are naturally interested in
whatever appertains to Canada, but unless the papers in the province have a
special Bervice, hardly a word of Eastern
Canadian news is received. Special services cost a good deal of money, and thus
the newspapers Is compelled to pay extra
for what it should by right receive. Some
steps should be taken by the press of the
province towards remedying the existing
state of affairs. We are not prepared to
Bay at this time what should lie done,
suffice it to say that we are satisfied that
united action should be taken, and if this
were done, we feel assured that u better
and much more satisfactory service could
be obtained. But so long as no effort is
made in this direction, so long will wc
labor under the disadvantages and annoyances which exist. A better service
is demanded, it is our right, and as we
have said with united action, it might be
had. The press of (his province is enterprising and energetic, the different newspapers are alike creditable to their
proprietors, to their constituencies nnd
to the country. And there is no renson
why their influence in the matter to
which we have reierred, could not bring
about thedesired change—a change which
all will agree is absolutely necessary.
An eastern exchange has the following
to say concerning the appropriation of
the term "American," us applied to our
cousins across the border:—"Thc men
who designated 'the country to Hie
south of us" the United States have
filched down from the Inhabitants thereof their good name. The citizen of England is an Englishman, of Scotland a
Scotchman, of Ireland an Irishman, of
Germany a German, etc., etc., but the
poor denizen of a country "nt our very
doors" is absolutely nothing. In recent
years they have been trying to monopolize the name of American, but we
who own the larger half of the continent
have at least an equal claim to the title.
It is a wonder that some eagle-screaming
Congressman has not brought in a bill
to baptize the people Americans. Inasmuch as Canadians have n very pretty
name oi their own It is hardly probable
that they should reveiit the appropriation. Here is a chance for Bntlerworlh
or Ilitt.

The newspapers of this province should
lorm a presB association. Their power
for good and their influence would be
greatly increased, were an association
formed. Those fraternal feelings which
ought to exist among the brethern of tlie
fourth estate, could be cultivated to considerable advantage at the meetings whiib
would be held yearly and good would result to all. The press of the province is
strong and influential enough to form an
Association. We wait for some of our
elders to move in the mutter ami hope to
see them do so, and that speedily.

The street lines of Nanaimo arc in a
very unsatisfactory condition, and it is
the opinion of many that the sooner steps
are taken to have a re-survey af the city
made, and the street lines properly established, the better will it 1«3 for all concerned. As the matter now stands, we
believe there have been a number t( surveys made no two ol which agree. Real
estate is enhancing in value, nnd the trouble can be arranged now, on a much more
equitable basis for all concerned, than it
can be five years hence. A proper and
authorised survey of the city ft demanded
and then it might be possible to settle nil
points of difference by a compromise that
would be satisfactory to all.
Thb Assembly of New York has passed
a bill making it a misdemeanor to sell
tobacco In any form to children under 10
years of age. What this law is intended
to do is to prevent children using tobacco. What It really will do, if it ever
goes into operation, will be to mnke the
children lie. .
What nature cannot do, the Legislature of New York may as well make ap
its mind that it cannot do either. Nature
has a penal law against the use of tobacco by infants, and enforces it pretty
strictly. It checks the evil, but it does
not extirpate it.   And the renson is that

I Imve observed for years how money is
I swallowed up in the vortex of speculation.
II am continually going to Wall street—I
I feel proof against its temptations—as I like
f to watch its currents and study hum an uat-
| ure, of which it is an excellent school.   I
meet acquaintances thero from every part
of the Union. One day I encounter Smith,
of Denver, and I Inquire after Jones, of
} Omaha, who told mo, throe months before,
, that he had cleared £">O0,00U hy his operations.
"Jones?   Oh, they'vo scalped  him.   That
► hot 1 tear attack on the market cleaned him
' out completely.   Heunsgono home without
anything; and ho had t40t>t000 or 1500,000,
• made by land speculation, when became to
New York two years ago."
"I aim very sorry for Jones," I reply. "Ho
was a good fellow a. id full of energy."
"Ho was all of that," remarks Smith.
"But be wasn't quite smart enough for Wall
' street. I told him last spring how ho was
going, but lie wouldn't believe mo. Now
he wishes, I fancy, that ho hnd taken my
advice, A man has lo get up pretty early in
the morning to stand the racket down hero.
"Aren't you afraid, Smith, thnt they'll get
your scalp one of these days?'
"Not a hit. They've tried it often; but I
"Wear all my hair yet. I know their ways.
I'm too old a bird to bo caught."
Somo months later I ran upon Brown, of
Chicago, and after a. littlo chat I express tho
hope thnt Smith is flourishing,
"Flourishing 1 Not exnctly. Haven't you
heard what happened to biml No, Ho wont
Blunt on Reading and be got 'busted'in short
orilcr. He's so poor that he's in a cheap
boarding houso in Harlem. You remember
what a Ugure be used to cut at the Windsor?
I Vising to got up again; but ho never
can. His father left him a handsome for-
Lune ten years ago, and be couldn't raise WOO
today. He's too hopeful, too reckless. Ho
doesn't know When to take in sail."
"Uut mayn't you bo in tho same condition
somo time? Tho tffcodk Exchange is the most
uncertain of places. A man of your pur-
| Buita is always living on a mine."
"Don't bother about me. I watch thoso
thieves. They can't hurt me, I always sleep
with ono eye open, and thoy know it. Chicago is sharper than New York.  A man edu-

A Wounded Dtick I*rov09 Too Much
Three Lar^c Eaclen.
A SJcmphis sportsman told tho following
interesting story to a reporter of Tho Appeal:
From ray blind in tho willows I heard the
wbis of a duck's wings i o my left. I turned
hastily, and at tho same time throw my gun
to ft ready. It was a cross-flyer, "grceu-
wlnged" teal, going liko he was sent for tho
doctor. 1 fired immediately and "wing-
tipped" him. Tho speen with which he waa
going landed him tor beyond tho reach of
my second barrel. As soon as ho struck tho
water ho began to swim toward tho middle
of the lake. In less than two minutes I
beard tho scream of nu eagle. Turning my
eyes toward tlie sound 1 saw, at a groat nlti-
tudo abovo tho timber, nn Immense bald
eaglo.
"Now you'll see fun," remarked tho native
with mo; "but ho'll never catoh him," ho concluded, as ho took an extra pull on lus strong
old pipe.
Cy this time tbo eagle bod begun to circle
over tho wounded thick.    Nearer and nearer ;
ho drew toward the scared bird as ho dimin- '
ished tho circlo at every Might.
Thc duck, with his sharp eyes fixed on the
eagle, swam round and round, Jus* as his adversary flow. When about fifty yards above
his prey the great bird uttered a scream, as
if to put tho terrified duclc ou Ills guard, ami
made a dart, with bis talons outstretched,
directly at him. Oo pome tho eagle with the
speed of an arrow, and 1 expected to soothe
wounded duck borne away by the "king of
birds" without any chance lor hid life what
ever.
"See him dive I" cried the native, as tbo
duck wont out of sight beneath thoplaold
waters. 'Tho eagle, realizing tho fact thai be
had missed his prey, shot upward Iu tho air
to mako another onslaught As ho did so ho
again uttered a scroani.
"Dor. man; ho has yelled for his mate, an*
de two of 'om will do up dot littlo duck if ho
don't git out of dot open water and hide in do
grass," remarked tbo uogro poddler,
Scarcely hod the sound of tho eoglo'scall
dlod away when I saw Its it into flying
swiftly toward tho battlo ground. I imagined
I could soo feathers on the wounded duck rise
OB theso two Immense birds circled abovo it.
After n preliminary understanding betweon
them eagle No. tmodo another dive nt the.
duck, while eagle No. 2 ciroled closo enough j
to tho water to catch tho duck as soon as it
showed its head after its first dive from No.
L 1 saw tho play and watched tho fight for
life of tho littlo duck with Intense interest,
and wished that they would pass near enough
to mo to bo placed passe de combat by a load
from my gun.
"LookI lookl ho makin' for tie cover,"
cried tho negro,as thoduok showed itself
fully 100 yards nearer 1 l'o grass.   Down went I
sated there can get on anywhere.   Robinson | eaglo No a nnd down went tho duck under
anil I—you know Robinson, of St. Louis—
haven't got caught yet, and we don't intend
to be. we're as wide awake as any of tho
hoys, and they know it."
Six months Inter I am shaking hands with
Hobinson in Exchange place, and refer to
Brown, hoping be is still prosperous
tho water, as I scored tho fifth clean miss for
the hungry birds.
As the maddened eaglo rose to glvo Its
mato another chance it also uttered a piercing scream, which, as if by magic, brought;
forth another one of its kind.
"Dor, now, if dent 'fro great big birds ain't
■£ wish he were; but tho fact is that he is : 'gwine to fight dat Olio little duck, den I'm a
broken down.   That big tumble in Western j sinner," again spoke tho negro.    And so they
Union hurt him irreparably, and ho hnd a aid, taking turn about as before, but with
itroke of paralysis the next week, and ho ! no better  success, as overy dive tho  duck

only, but it makes Brown look old.   He's :    Once under cover, they gave up the fight,
grown fifteen years older since last Juno, j ,ina tho wounded bird was spared until tho
His sudden success turned his head, and
he went in too deep. I'm afraid ho hasn't
much left. A man in Wall street has to
learn when to be bold and when to be cautious, and Brown never learned this. It was
one of the first lessons that I learned, und I
learned it thoroughly. I've boon operating
here six or seven years, and In that thno I'vo
seen scores of follows ruined. Rut l'vo never
been crippled even, anil I ascribe my uniform
success to judgment. Some people call it
luck.    Rah, thorn's no such thing as luck."
"Rut is not your judgment fallible-.1 Ono
can not always keep on tho right side of
tho market?"
"Few can; but I am ono of tho few."
One evening, just after a week of great
disturbance in stocks, a disturbance almost
approaching panic, I ran upon a well known
broker, many of whoso customers aro from
thu west. We foil to tallttng of the disasters
ofthe week, and ho mentioned that Robinson
had lost u lot of money on Manhattan, and
his margined stocks had been sold ont. "He
must have lost several hundred thousand dollars, may bo $r>00,000. Ho Is going to St.
Louis to dispose of some real estate belonging to his wife, who has entire confidence in
him ami his ability, and with tho new H*wfco
ho will outer tho street again."
"You havo been a stock broker n long
while," I asked an acquaintance lately,
"what do you candidly think of speculationf
What is tho result of your observation? Is
much money made in Wall street?"
"Almost nothing. Men who make in ono
thing lose in another. I've been twonty-flvo
years in tho street, and of tho hundreds who
have operated on margins through mo I can
scarcely recall hulf a dozen who have not
suffered in tho long run. The truth is nine
teen out of every twenty men—perhaps
thirty-nine out of forty—aro gamblers by
constitution. And whon thoy begin gambling they don't know whon to leave off. No
ono can imagine what misery and crimo
Wall street causes unless he is on the inside.
I often wish 1 had gone into somo other
business. I havo soon bo much of tho ovil of
speculation that I never •peculate myself."
Since thou my broker friend has failed by
his rash attempt to keep up a line of stocks
that had been drooping for months, and it is
doubtful if ho can resume. He Is reported to
mo as a desperate speculator for a innn of his
means, though for many years ho was ono of
tho most conservative members of the board,
Tho worst thing about Wall street is that it
ruins men morally not less than financially.
Tho habit of speculating is as bad as dram
drinking or opium eating. No ono knows,
when ho begins, whero ho will end. A full
course of Wall street is apt to sap the foundations of character, debauch tho sentiments,
overthrow every principle. It begets with
the successful a lust of greed which nothing
cuu satisfy, and with the unsuccessful self
contempt, morbid anxiety, shattered nerves,
the agony of alternating hope and despair.
Wall street, puts human nature in the gutter,
and keeps, it there.—Junius Henri Browne in

Waponooe lake is surrounded. So intent

Polling Cattle.
Tho practice of removing tho horns of
dairy cattle, which was recently Introduced
on tho milk farms of Now York and Now
'< Jersey, has grown rapidly into favor. Tho
i process is known as "polling" cattle, aud tho
; object is to deprive vicious animals of an
! offensive weapon, dangerous to man nnd
j beast.
I    It is stated that 200 persons aro killed in tho
'. United   States every year by  ill tempered
! farm cattle.   Perhaps thoso largo figures are
> unwarranted, but it is a recognized  truth
J that fatal or painful casualties of this char-
i actor aro of frequent ooourrenoo in tho dairy
j districts.   A vicious bull at certain seasons
! is scarcely loss fierce and dangerous than tho
I lion or tiger of tho African jungle.   Aside
j from tho injuries to persons, cattle gore ono
i another, ami overy dairyman counts upon
j losing n considerable sum annually in COnse-
I queued of   mutual injuries inflicted by tho
1 sharp horns of his herd.
|    In polling an animal tho horn is cut off
" with a fine saw about three-fourths of an
I inch from tho head.   It cannot be denied that
! tho loss of the horns is a serious disfigurement of somo of tho fancy breeds of cattle,
For this reason, nnd because of nn alleged
impairment of tho health of tho animals operated on, somo dairymen strongly oppose
i tho practice, denouncing it as cruol and bar-
I bnrous.   But the experience of tho dairymen
| of tho Orange county milk region decidedly
I favors tho practice.   Thero nro at least fifty
i farmers In this county who havo had a part
I or tho wholo of  their eottlo polled,    Tho
j unanimous verdict of these experimenters is
! lhat whero tho operation of removing tho
horns is done by nn expert it Is attended by
no serious pain or subsequent suffering to the
animal, nB Is evidenced by tho fact, In the
case of a milch cow, thnt sho will take hor
feed as usual, and that there is no diminution
of tho flow of milk.
Tho advantages vouched for aro exceedingly important. In tho first place, taking
tho extromo case of a vicious bull, the operation serves to tamo his ferocity as woll as to
deprive him of tho ability to do serious harm.
Tho polled cattle at once become quiet and
orderly. They do not goro ono another, nor
do thoy injure tho horses or other Btock kept
with them on tho farm, Thero is comparatively no contention or unrest, but more
milk aud fatness, in tho herd. Whon tho
dairyman odors an auinml for sale It is not
disfigured by horn wounds or soratohos. Tho
butcher will pay an extra price for It bo-
cause its flesh is not bruised, nor is its hide
damaged by scars or wounds.—Mfddlotown

Gunvmds.
A now stylo of gunwad Is making a stir in
England. It comes from Sweden and is
made of paper pulp. It is made cup shapod,
tho hollow being placed in tho cartridge next
to the powder. It follows that tho powdor
gases press the edge of this cup ngainst tho
barrel and so keep themselves from mingling
with tho shot. Extended experiments <hOW

tho standard thirty Inch circlo, an Improved
spread of tho shot, aud an increased penetration. Tho recoil of tho gun was naturally Increased at tho same time. It Is pretty plain
from these trials that the ordinary gunwads,
even when thoy flt tho barrel snugly and ore

nn eye witness, in fact?
Tlie recollections of one autumn week will
last me to my dying day. It was one of
thoso calm, sunshiny days, aud I wns numbered in company with a quartot of sport
loving young fellow.; who went forth, eager
to scour tho grand, boundless prairies in
search of the toothsome duck or hen, antelope, or, perhaps, a .stray buffalo, which aro
now very scarce.
TIIUEE DATS  WITHOUT  WATER,.
We started out without taking the precaution of preparing for a;iv emergencies what'
ever, as we placed explicit confidence, in our
ability as good sportsman to supply tho needs
of tho body. We sorely regretted not doing
so tho next day That whole day wo wan
dored nimlo-sly about over the endless
prairies, and not so much as an htslgnijleunt
gopher made its appearance to fall before
our shotguns. Tho craving,; or hunger ami
thirst now began to assert themselves, and in
our frenzied wanderings tho truth dawned
upon us that wo wore I st. LoUl Lost, Indeed, upon a scorching in*, tine that seemed to
have no outlet, no tre . no water, no green
grass,'and not a fowl or animal In sight.
The situation was horrible to contemplate.
Our faithful horses' tongues wero lolling
from their mouth0., nnd wo wero so weak
from hunger that it was with groat difficulty
wo remained in tho Bttddloft.
Two day.i without water is harder on a
human being than going without food for a
week, and we saw starvation and death
gauntly staring us iu the face, How wo managed to drag til rough the hours of that awful
night I can never relate. It was well on to
noon before wo considered ourselves sufficiently rested to resume tho hunt for a sign
of civilization. The sun's burning rays
seemed to bo hotter and moro relentless than
ever. Wo soon stopped, as wo wore too
fatigued to proceed any farther. Simultaneously it dawned upon us all that this was to
bo our last day upon earth, aud with ii
brotherly shako of the hand wo lay prone
upon tho ground awaiting tho now welcome
coming of death.
Harry Halo suddenly sprung upon his foet,
grabbed his shotgun, placed tho muzzlo to
his brain, and would have pujlod tho trigger
and ended his earthly troubles but for my
timely interference.
POOR HARRY'S VATBJ.
IIo thon rushed to one of the horsesand shot
it dead. Hardly had tho animal fallen before
Halo, with childish glee, pounced upon tho
prostrate body, slashed Its throat with his
hunting knife, and applied his mputb to the
hot, gushing Ulopd. drinking it down with a
gluttonous npberifi}.
Tho sight of flowing blood nerved us to
almost desperation, and we crowded to the
yet dying horSo. rougnly pushed Hale aside,
and eagerly sacked tho ebbing life's blood.
I believe to this day that nothing hns ever
tasted better in my lifo. Our existence was
prolonged now for at least a short period,
and our lips moved in grateful prayer.
A wild, maniacal shout from Halo at
t racted my attention. Groat heavens I Tho
madman was mounted on one of tho horses
and tearing away. He was glancing back
.md pointing nhoad and screaming at the top
of his lungs: "Water I Water I" Ono of us
must bo left behind. One horse was dead,
and three persona could not rldo upon the
two animals, that wero now very weak. 1
looked in the direction of Halo, and, suro
enough, what appeared to bo water was seen
in the distance. I hastened to acquaint my
: companions of tho joyful discovery. Halo
kept galloping madly on, looking neither
way, but furiously lashing his horse. A steep
precipice loomed before the rider, but ho
heeded it not, and spurred bis oxhaustod
animal to still greatorspoed. The poor horse
attempted to sworvo from its oourso and
avoid tho yawning chasm, but Hale noticed
nothing but tho fascinating dance of water
on tho horizon. Thoy wero now but a few
rods from tho precipice.
Still   tho   horse was   spureed   on.     He
neighed  piteously,   plunged  forward,   and
just nt its brink stopped stock still and tho
rider flow ovor his head Into the bottomless
: pit.   To say that wo wero horrified would bu
putting it rather mild.   Wo hastened to tho
i scene of tho catastrophe.   The horso stood
I on tho edge, troinbling in terror from boad
; to foot.   I carefully approached tho brink
: and  peered  into tho  black pit.    Nothing
could bo discerned; all was pitchy darkuoss.
I soizod a largo rock and hurled it to tho bottom.   Presently  I heard  a  faint  sound-
deep, deep down into tho very bowels of tho
earth.   Poor Halo's death camo very easy,
j though terribly unexpected, and no human
i Icing could make that descent without death
. ensuing half way down.
THB DANCING  WATERS.
With heavy hearts wo once moro Baddlod
i our tired horses and followed tho alluring
lake.   An hour passed, but it scorned as if wo
Were  just  as far  away   as  on  tho start.
■ Another hour, another, and another, and
. still the waters kept dancing and glistening
in tho sunlight an apparently short distance
; ahead. We ooutlnued tho tedious trip, and
; happening to look up iva discovered to our dismay that tho supposed lake had entirely van-
| ished. But a moro welcomo sight greeted
! us.   Not many miles to tho east tho city from

Wo traveled and traveled, but It was Impossible to approach tlio town.   Then, as if
by magic, tho wholo scono disappeared from

Tlio tired, faithful steeds refused to budge

Tho pangs of hunger knew no bounds, so 1
; resolved to slay another horse, I got up and,
i to my horror, tho animals had strayed away,
, probably in search of fodder, My companions
i groaned feebly, but wo wero nil too weak to

■ tho grim destroyer would soon come and ro-
: liovo us. Well, ho did not como, pr I would
j never havo written this sketch. While in a
{ comatose condition I was shaken gently, and
j friendly hands applied a cooling flask to my
i heated lips. This snmo oillco Was also admin-

How couU Ope live through a day like this,
Street: were < >ne not with his books or in lover
I am both: I am happy; with that dear bliss
Of lovers who have no faith to prove,
Of readers who have no task for heeding,
But read from the sheer, sweet love of reading
Tlie mm is dead, and the clouds hang low,
Anil the winds are weeping a dirge. What though
My hie is full: hi my heart I know
Ti.s only distance keepeth tho kiss
On thy lips frum mine,
Ou my lips from thine;
No ta.-k to learn, no faith to prove—
Oh, how could one live through a day like this,
Sweet! wen- one nut with his books or lu love?

The Mourning; of the Poor.
Nothing is more pitiful than theemblemi
of mourning of tho very poor. On one sid«
of tho doorway of one of the most poverty
stricken ami repellant tenement houses a bit
of white mourning fluttered in the bittel
winter air. It was cheap mourning, and
therefore moro mournful than any other.
Composed of a rosette of coarse muslin, with
a painfully small knot of the poorest whit*
satin ribbon, it told its story of destitution
more forcibly than languago could possibly
portray it. The hall was a mass of snow and
ice. Its door stood wide open, and no tunnel
could be collier. Every window in the miserable building waB dark and dirty as n coal
mine. Yet, within thoso hideous walk] human
beings lived, suffered and died. Who could
help looking upon that pathetic bit of mourning nnd keep from saying: "It is well with
the child. He will walk in no evil ways; he
will know no evil thought; ho will do no evil
deed."—New York Press "Every Day Talk."
Tho Eskimo's Meehuulcal Ingenuity.
In the mutter of mechanical ability, for
Instance, examine the tool box of an Eskimo
whon ho considers it well furnished, and what
does it contain i A well worn fllo, an indifferent saw, a few rusty nails, a cheap penknife,
and a very inferior sheath knife. What
would tho ordinary mechanic of civilization
accomplish with such implements as these)
Yet with theso poor tools the Eskimo will
repair the locks of their guns, make harpoons
and spears, put together their kayaks and
umiaks, and manufacture all sorts of things
out of walrus ivory. They will take the
blade out of one penknife, alter it so as to be
of suitable size, antl place it iu another handle,
drilling with a broken needle the hole for the
pin ou which tho blade turns, having first by
means of fire carefully untompcred the part
of tho blade to bo drilled.—J. Macdonald

years, and each year from fifty to seventy-
five go back to China with from $2,000 to
$5,000, a fortune for them. Most Ohinese
miners work over old mines, and are very expert at cleaning up every particle Of gold;

Neither Posters Nor Umlgeri.
Ono of the shrewdest and most successful
of advertisers is John Wauamaker, the great
Philadelphia merchant, who accounts for his
success in this way: "I nover in my life used
such a thing as a poster, a dodger or a hand
bill. My plan for fifteen years has been to
buy so much space iu a newspaper, and fill
it up with what I wanted. I would not give
an advertisement in a newspaper, even of but
•1WJ circulation, for 5,000 dodgers.—New Orleans Times-Democrat.
A Psychical Incident.
A well known artist of this city tells a
story which will be of interest to any one
i fond of psychical investigations.   He was
sitting in his sleeping chamber late at night
i reading a French novel, when his wife, who
! had  retired  some  hours  before, suddenly
awoke and related a dream which she bad
1 just had.   Tho dream was on exact counter-
i part—oven to details—of  the  plot  ot the
I novel, which the lady had never read.—New
j York Evening World.

Novel Way of Advertising.
A passenger and ticket agent of a Florida
railroad, at Jacksonville, Fie., has a novel
way of advertising his line. He has a rack
made of wire, filled with the choicest
oranges, and on each orango Is stamped an
Advertisement. When any one comes into
his ticket oflice seeking information about
bis line, especially if ho is from the north, ho

A Singular Error.
A singular error is the use of the word
"cocoanut" which, botanical authorities
urge, should be "coconut" The wrong
spelling is charged upon Dr. Johnson, who
is said to havo confused tbe "coconut" with
"cocoa," which Is tho product of the cacao

False.
The following which appeared in the
free Prett last evening is unqualifiedly
false. "The report in the Couribii this
morning severely censuring tlie employes
oltheE. & N. Railway for Inhuman
treatment is entirely uncalled for, ami it
wohIcI be more to the credit of our m. C,
if they obtained the true facts ol such
cases before running into print, etc, etc."
The employes of the 10. & N. Railway
were not even mentioned, niiich less being teverely censured, and the report of
the accident was entirely oorreot. Tlie
scribbler on the Free Press must be hard
up for something to write about.
Attempted suicide,
It is stated on good authority
Wednesday evening a deliberat
to commit suicide wus made by
tender of a well-known Johns
hotel, who sought relief from the troubles
oi life by takinga large doseof laudanum.
Fortunately bis actions n few minutes
later attracted suspicion, and a medical
man being called in, bis life was saved.
Tbe would-be suicide is very popular
among all bis acquaintances, and bus
been only n short time married to a
young woman also employed at the hotel.
A prolonged spree is the cause assigned
for the attempt at self-destruction,—Colonist.
.     ABOUND TOWN.
Although Nanaimo is not very large,
and one soon grows familiar with all Ihe
sights, there is still something new to be
seen each day by an observant eye. The
flower gardens and orchards are in full
bloom—and by the way it is a pity there
aro not more of them—and they present
a truly delightful appearance. The finest
I have observed m the city is that of
John Pawson, Esq., onFltzWilliam street.
It is tastefully arranged and well kept,
and altogether charming. I wonder thai
more of our citizens do not give attention
to the cultivation of trees and flowers.
The very sight of tbem makes one feel
better, and the man who loves Mowers is
not wholly bad.
A small boy, a dog, and a tin kettle attached to the canine's narrative afforded
a great deal or amusement for a crowd of
urchins yesterday, nntl considerable
agony for the poor dog. Our children
should be taught to have a regard for the
feelings of the poor dumb creatures, who
are powerless against tlie attacks of the
superior ( ?) creation. There is enough
evil inherent in all of US, and we should
certainly endeavor to cultivate the good
instincts of the human breast, and not.
try to smother them.
I was asked yesterday, if I knew who
were likely to be candidates for the seal
in the local house, made vacant by the
death of the Hon. It. Dunsmuir, Not
being a politician, I could not answer the
question. It has been my experience
extending now over quite a number of
years, that the crop of politicians, like the
product called fools never fails—no reflect-
tion is intended on the former class. The
man who monkeys with politics, is in
my opinion, unless he be born for place
and power, like the man who fools with
a buzz saw—be won't get tbe best of   It.
Touch   aud   Va.
A SiwaBh went on a "burst" yesterday
in company with a bottle of square face
gin. He had a high old time all alone,
and then thinking that he was too warm
proceeded to the beach to cool himself.
He lay down near the edge of the water
which quickly covered him and hu was
in very great danger of drowning in
six incheB of water when he was rescued.
The man who pulled him ashore says
that the apathetic manner in which the
Indian acted was ludicrous, He refused
to help himself and it was only hy dint
ol Bheer strength that the good Samaritan
saved his soul for luture exigencies.

I. O. O. V. Ball and Supper.
The ball and supper last night in Institute Hall, under the auspices ot" the
brethren of the triple links, was well attended. About sixty couples were present, and it is sale" to say that a more
pleasant or successlul entertainment of
the kind was never held in Nanainio.
The Hall was decorated with flags kindly
loaned by Captain Farnbam, of the Rums ,E Wood, evergreens and mottoes,
appropriate to the Order. The supper,
which was provided by D. Morrello, of
the Palace Hotel, was a model of taste
and elegance. The menu was a most
elaborate one, and reflected the highest
credit upon tlie skillful caterer anil his
efficient aides. Seventy-live couples sat
down te the repast, and the spread was
pronounced to lie the most elaborate
ever prepared in Nanaimo.
After supper the happy throng again
repaired to the Hall, where dancing !•
the music of the Nanaimo String Hand,
was indulged In until the "wee mini'
hom-H."
Mr. W. H. Morton proved himself an
efficient floor manager, and be was ablv
seconded hy Mr. W. Miller. Black Dili
inond Lodge No. It and the committee in
charge ofthe arrangements, are to.be
congratulated upon the grand success of
their anniversary ball.
Kditok Coiuiiiit:—What is the matter
with the editor ofthe Nauaimo Fne Press.
X think he has grown bilious. First be
says that the many residents oi Nanaimo,
Wellington and the surrounding districts
who have for years past received all the
local, provincial and latest telegraphic
dispatches will still be enabled to promptly receive thc news as formerly. Is that
not surprising?
I thought the editor oi the Free Press
had retired from business as his brains
must be heavily taxed to get up
such a lively sheet as he does, for I see
vou have more news in your daily paper
than there is in the Free Press in one
week. Then he offers to give the people
a freo "ad." in his paper that he calls Ids
semi-weekly. Why does he do it? Because be has nothing else to put ill it and
then he says he will give them the paper
for $," per year. Why? Does be think
that we would pay \S for a paper when
there is nothing but advertisements in it
when we can get one with more news in
one issue than bis paper has in six
months for if- a year. And the pubic
will subscribe to the paper thai has reading matter iu il ami the business people
will advertise in the paper that the pub-
lie take. I see that the "old nmu" feels
Oh ! so deeply, for the stall' of the M. 0.
when Ihey received no less than thirty-
six invitations to drink. The old man
must feel badly, as be is of a thirsty disposition himself, generally whon he can
get it cheap, but he has not got quite as
many friends to call him up. Poor old
man, 1 am sorry for him thai he did not
gel amongst the wags and save himself
$7. I think the "old man" must have
lost favor lately since a live paper like
yours started.
I remain, vours,
Sam.

Disposal of Stock.—Tlie last few 'days
have witnessed the purchasing of a large
amount of dry goods, millinery and mens
furnishings from the cost price sale at
Arthur Bullock's. We always contend
that in small towns it is impossible to
humbug the public as to prices, as they
are well aware when an article is offered
much below its value, and hence the
reason of the crowd of customers lo be
seen at Bullock's at all hours of the day.

The modes of death's approach are var-
otis, and statistics show conclusively lhat
more persons die from diseases of thc 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
Bensation in the throat and if allowed to continue Iheir ravages they extend to Ihe lungs
producing Consumption and to lhc head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in lime cause
death. At the onset you must act wilh
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
attention is dangerous and may lose yjur
life. As soon as you feel that BOfndUUng is
wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils
obtain a bottle of lioschee's German Syrup.
It will give you immediate relief*.

My experience with that dangerous article—polities—bus not been of a rusente
hue, and perhaps that's what makes
mo sour. 1 wns invited to run for Mayor
a few years ago in a little Dakota town.
I was assured that my great popularity
antl my winning ways'and last, but not
least, my well known gall, would insure
my certain election by a large majority.
In a moment of weakness I consented. I
wns duly nominated, and 1 was as duly
elected—to stay at home by a majority of
four to one. The man who defeated me
was a red-headed, one-eyed beggar too.
But he got there. It was rather rough '
on me, but it spoke volumes for the!
good sense of the people of that little
Dakota town. This is why I have no use
for politics. I don't want any more in
mine.
.Nanaimo can boast o[ having three of
the fattest Aldermen of nny city in British Columbia, to-wit: Aldermen Peck,
Baker and Abrams. It is said that a fat
man is always good natured, and a glance
nt the countenances of the three 1 have
named, would lead one to believe that
the saying was true. But because a man
isn't blessed with lots of adipose tissue,
it doesn't follow that he is cross-
grained. Not at all. I believe all the
Nanaimo Aldermen—fat or lean—are
thoroughly good-natured—and modest. I
am lean myself. M. Dash.

This is not a fish story. We would
scorn to defile our new paper with an
ordinary common piscatorial story. Yet
if at any time anyone has a real good
lively fish story we want it. But now we
merely wish to mention that two of our
local sports went fishing. They were
careful of the Inner man, so carried
basket oi edibles, also a "little brown jug"
containing a trifle of the seductive fluid.
They arrived at their destination after
a considerable amount of perspiration
being expended and considered that the
jug might lie sampled. The jug wns accordingly taken from the basket and one
of them produced a glass when a Blight
breaking of branches wns heard, nccoin
panied by a noise resembling distant
thunder—(to use their own words). It
proved to be something more terrestrial
thongh in the shape of an irate bull.
Trees were handy and our piscatorial
friends took advantage of tliem nntl
roosted among the boughs like crows,
while the bull investigated the contents
of the basket, tipped over the jug of
whiskey which, in their hurry, Ihey had
not recorked, trod on the fishing rods
and then liking the situation decided to
camp there. After a couple ol hours repose be sought fresh fields and pastures
new, and our fishermen descended to
terra fir ma and returned to town by back
roads wiser and sadder men. They
bribed the rancher's boy, who saw them,
not to give it away, but he thought it was
too rich to keep.

HAS RUMOVKD TO
Jews 111 Australia.
The number of Jews at present in the
colonies is probably between 13,00(1 and
14,000. The last census gave 5,000 to the
Colony of Victoria and about the similar
number to New South Wales jthe residue
are scattered over the remaining different
settlements. Ofthe Jewish inhabitants
of New South Wales—the premier colony
—hy far the greater number reside in
Sydney, the capital. Here the Jews
deservedly bold an honorable position.
Conspicuous among eminent men, whose
talents have received public recognition,
nre Sir Saul Samuel and Mr. Julian
Solomons, Q. 0. Both these gentlemen
hear n high reputation for character and
ability. Sir Saul is the Agent-General
for the colony in London, and has earned
the heighest encomiums for the manner
in which he represents his country. Mr.
Julian Solomons is a leading and distinguished lawyer, who was some little
time ago offered ihe Chief Justiceship,
which he, Indeed, hail accepted, hut
immediately after resigned. But for his
health thnt gentleman would, in all pro-
bnlility, be destined to occupy tbe foremost political post in the country. As it
is' he is the first legal authority, nnd
not a few laws on the statute book are
tine to his dear luminous intellect.—
