ULADST0N1"  ON   ROYAL GRANTS.
London July 25.—Iu the House of
Commons last night Gladstone said lie
elt no disposition to criticise those ot his
friends who differed from him in tlie
treatment of the Royal Grants question
and wbo were disposed to view it altogether from the standpoint of a cold and
calculating utility, but for liis own part
he wns not ashamed to confess that it was
impossible to look upon this as purely
a question of pounds, shillings and pence.
He was charged with giving way to sentiment.   So let it be.
Tbe long years whicli have rolled up a
| history   for   the   British   Crown,    its
! achievements, its splendor, its traditions,
i its dignity, were all a sentiment; but not
| a sentiment he wished to   obliterate.
Rather did he wish to see it take firmer
root in the hearts of his  countrymen.
He did not wish to see the traditions of
the Crown forgotten or the lustre dimmed, and it pained him more than he
could express, to see this house turned
into a market place where royalty must
dicker and baggie for what was rightly
its due.
MORLEY  FOLLOWED GLADSTONE
, and opposed the government proposals.
The extravagant grants of former reigns,
I he said, did not excuse their repetition.
I He could not support the substitute of
Labouchere, to the effect that the Queen
should provide for her grandchildren out
of her present income, because the message, which it contemplated sending to
the Queen, was not such an one, nBin his
opinion ought to be sent; and besides he
was desirous of upholding the good tradition, which clung about the throne. On
Monday, however, he would himself I
offer an amendment which he hoped!
would bring the whole subject in its'
broadest aspect before the House.

IKISII  UEMBERS HOLD  A  CAUCUS.
Irish Nationalist members had a meeting this afternoon to discuss their attitude toward the question of grants, and
although there was no attempt to bring
about united action on the subject, a very
pronounced majority committed themselves to the course which Parnell has
cut out for himself. A small section of
the Irish party will follow the lead of
O'Connor in opposition to the Government's proposals.

Several casualties occurred this morning to the war ships assembling to take

Mischievous I'rluces.
An amusing story was told a few day ago
regarding the young sons of tho emperor,
who are continually getting into mischief.
During the afternoon games the chamberlain
had introduced them Into tho mysteries ol
tho opera hat, which pleased the children,
"because," as tho martial crown prince Bold,
I "it goes off like a catinon and will bo a good
! thing with which to frighten mamma,"
Shortly afterward they wero in tho reccp.
i tion rajom with thoir father, when the court
prooohor. Dr. KoeeL was announced. Ha
was asked to enter, and the children, after
greeting him, wero sent to the corridor to
await the audience's end. Here they espied
tho court preacher's high hat, and, believing
all such appendages possessed of the qualities
of the chapeau claque, considered it a fit object for experiment.
Littlo Eitel Fritz, tho most adventurous ol
tho four, took it In his small armsand pressed
it against his breast with all his might But
it would not grow less, tho expected report
failed to como, and the Uttle foUow tugged
away In vain. "1 cannot do lt," he cried,
looking for advice to the 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 camo Into his head, "Sit upon iti"
Straightway It was done. The hat was
crushed and Eitel Fritz rolled upon the floor.
The uproarious laughter which foUowed the
accomplishment of this feat brought the emperor from tho room, asking what was tht
cause of the unusual hilarity. The crown
prince pointed to the dilapidated remains of
the court preacher's hat and uld: "It would
not go off at first, but I commanded Eitel
Fritz to sit upon It, and then it cracked just
like tbe others." The emperor could not forbear to laugh, whUo scolding the children for
their pranks, He presented tho hat to Dr.
Rogel as a memento of his future ruler, and
sent the servant to purchase a new one. Dr.

TUB COMMISSION ADJOURNS.
London, July 25.—The Parnell Commission has adjourned until October
24th. When the Commission opened
this morning, Mr. Hardcastle, the accountant of the National Bank, testified
that the bank books belonging to the
Land League, which had been produced
in court, covered the whole period of the
League's existence. The witness could
not say that the £75,000 which was unaccounted for, owing to the absence of
the books of the LadieB' League, hnd
been misappropriated. Solicitor Soames,
of the Times' counsel, then took the
stand, while Sexton, for tho Pamellites,
asked him to state the amount paid by
the Times to tho witnesses it had called!
in tho caBe. Mr. Soames said he was
unable to Btate the amount paid within
£10,000. The sum was a very large one,
he admitted. This concluded the evi-'
dence. Presiding Justice Sir James!

It ls now some yenrs since Mr. Alfred Collier wrote his yawning song—an Invitation
to drowsiness not less potent than the best
after dinner speech of a magistrate or th.
apod old three decker sermon.   Yawning haa
generaUy   been   associated   with   comedy.
Thero have oven been coarse wags who, in
reference   to   tho  weU  known  "catching"
I power ot yawning, hove evolved the pro-
j verb, "What ls mine is yawn,"—a confu»ion
j of "meum" and "tuum," only defensible in
the case of a sleep walker.   But reports from
Cambridge city, in Indiana, put a traglo
color upon this institution.    In thot town
ono Mr. Lackey, having indulged In a large
i yawn, ruptured somo of tbe cords In  the

should be a warning to all lazy folk.   Yawning is a vice which is of all vices most sym-
l«ithotic.    The terrible maxims about "example" apply to It with fatal  pertinence.

Much is nowadays written by scientific
men as to the mosl effective agents capable of arresting that constanl expenditure of energy which results from the
proper employment of our faculties.
Perhaps It may be said thai in sparsely
populated countries Bitch as British Columbia this strain is not nearly so severe
as that which results in the great cities
.ii the United states and oi Europe. This
toacertaln extent is true, though the
struggle for existence like the possession
of happiness is probably nearly "sqared."

country wa' reside. It is. however, toills
arising Irom the strain upon the city
workers that so many leaders of science
have lately turned their attention. The
more important of these may he briefly
summarized: excessive and persistent
brain work without sulliiicnt rest: brain-
work in persons incapable by nature; or
by reason of imperfect training; the endeavor to carry on simultaneously several
occupations; and lastly, over anxiety antl
worry connected with daily life, striving
after success, Ac. A high authority has
told us repeatedly in his popular science
lectures to the people of London that
it is of but little use looking to the Slate
or society in general for amelioration ot
these evils. It is the Individual man or
woman who must each adopt such measures ns will either prevent or mitigate
"wear and tear," and which will serve to
combat their untoward results when once
developed. Let ns turn for one moment
to nn instance recently referred to in a
speech by Mr. Oladstose, viz., the management of liusiness in lhe House of
Commons. This, at lhe present day. is
such that diligent attendance dining a
-ingle session is sufficient to wear out lhe
physical nntl mental powers ol' the strongest man. "The late hours, the long
sittings, the frivolous questionings, the
weariness and emptiness of many of lhe
debates, furnish an ample explanation of
the want of lone of many of those who
endeavor lo tlo their duly." The London
Spectator in referring In this subject assorts that al any rate the endurance of
the racket of society is altogether voluntary, und infers therefore lhal il could be
dispensed with.   Wc take exception to

that of the former, an increased measure
of success is followed by more imperious
demands on the purl nf society. If advantages are to be retained, their possessor must show that he is able to bear
the popular gaze, ami the exhibition
flatters those whose support will tend   to
bring further successes within reach.    If
society-haunting afforded the necessary
relaxation  to  the over-worked bruin,  it
might be excused on  that  ground;  but
unfortunately a heavy price is often paid
by  men   who  give   In  society— i. '..   in
great cities—the time which  ought to be
devoted to rest or relaxation.     We have
often been told lhat ill-health from overwork among American children is attributed,  not to school   pressure,   but  to
parental ambition and to lhe "society engagements" ol the pupils.    Iii the primitive state of society thc more important
of the laws of health a-e unconsciously

obedience is not possible  for the net ive
workers   in   large  cities.    As  Professor
Huxley hns pointed onl, men.s capaci-,
tics fnr work differ as much as their fen- '
tnres.   One of the best   tests, we are na-
sured, as to whether hard mental  toil is |
producing mischief or not, is capacity for I

nearly  equal nature, the   state  of  the j

A forrespondent has ftilleal my attention to a case recently heard before the

for calling a boy. The master's defence
was that the boy had disobeyed orders,
and tin* magistrates dismissed lhe ease
with the remark that they were wrong.
It buys must be caned, lhe fane ought to

mind, If the mother's evidence be correct,
il alters the case altogether. If the cane

the boy is certain to resent it—not to

'The WouiU'rful Meteoric Slltmatr of 18*13.
Theories a. to the Cnuse and Effect—A
Child's Wonderment at tho Scene—Superstitious Awe of Colored  People.
Ono of the earliest and most vivid of j
[coy personal recollections is of the grand
I neteoric shower of Nov.  13,  1833.    A
Jmilar occurrence is recorded as happen- j
ling in northern Europe near the close of
■the last century.    But no meteorological i
l.lisplay has equaled that of 1833 in ex- j
[tent and duration from the beginning of
Rhe historic period.
VEXED QUESTIONS.
With  reference lo the origin of these
Juieteors thero have been divers conjee-
Mures, most of which aro nt best Lap-
kiazard speculations. Anuiuberofastron- i
imers hnvo regarded them as fragments
I ,>f an exploded planet small in size, but I
I of a liko sort with tbo hundred and odd
asteroids that have been discovered be-
I tween the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
Kepler   himself   thought   that a   Iarg6
■alauet wns needed in this vast Interplant*
Lry space to perfect tbo rhythm of the
Bides and tho fabled music of the spheres.
I The subsequent discoveries of Piazzi aud
' Olbers nntl tlieir successors havo fully
I justified  this  opinion.    This old astronomical fancy of a lost Pleiad likewise
j |inds its vindication, it may be in  these
Sjsteroidsand in the far moro numerous
uicleoroids which havo since boon seen in
| all parts of tbo world.   Whether they be,
j is suggested,  the disjecta membra of
■J, peine errant und  wrecked orb doomed
Band damned  for somo earlier Adamic
] transgression,  they certainly occupy a
definite placo iu our system.
Their periodical occurrence with greater or lesser brilliancy in May and Novem-
•ber and likewise In August and December, establish tho facts that atthese dates
[ our earth in its annual  travel conies In
[ frequent contact with a meteoric zone.
It may require another century of investigation with the aid of mightier itistru-
pents than that of the Link observatory
i determino whether, as   is   probable,
tese meteoric exhibitions result from a
Vast volume of nebulous matter revolving around the sun, and itself tho nur-
'sery of embryonio planets.
Whatever our conclusion on these
vexed questions, it was certainly not
I only the privilege of a lifetime, but a
millennium, to be nn eye witness of such a
I stupendous and resplendent spectacle. I
I distinctly remember being aroused about
I 4 o'clock in tho morning by the weird
1 outcries of tho domestic servants. They
[ seemed possessed with the idea that the
I day of judgment was at hand, and 1 read-
' ily recall tho efforts of my father to quiet
I the uproar by assuring tbem that there
I was no causo of alarm.
Of course, I know nothing of scientific
Import. My impressions wero thoso of
elation rather than fright. To mo the
whole scene was nbout what I have
since conceived of tho pyrotechnic displays of tho Vauxhall garden or a full
fledged Chinese feast of lanterns. A boy
.reader will best understand the aspect ol
['things when I add that aside from thc
fizz and tho pop it waa like a thousand
Chrlstmases condensed into ouo.
ScientiOc observers hnvo slnco told us
that theso moteoroids all seemed to pro-
(ceed from a point in tho constellation
Leo. For this reason they have been
since called Leonids. My boyish remem-
.brance accords witb this statement of
the scientists. Usually they issued singly,
but nt times they bad tho appearanco of
a stream of lire. A few that I observed
were very large, ono or moro not unlike
the nucleus of Halloy's comet in 183*i,
when it was receding from the sun.
READY iron "A WORD OF PRATER."
They nearly all seemed falling directly
to tho earth, and it was a matter of childish wonderment to me that tbey did not
cover the ground as I had seen falling
snow flakes do at other times. The splen-
' dor of these celestial fireworks gradually
waned as the dawn approached, very
much to my personal regret.
A great many stories are still current
In regard to tbe general consternation
produced by this marvelous phenomenon.
In somo Instances persons were frightened Into convulsions, and several deaths
were reported from different parts of the
* country.
In my boyhood tbere was a story current of a wealthy slaveholder in western
Georgia, who was besides something of
a philosopher.    He resided in the center
I  of a  large  negro  quarter,  and being
wakened by the shrieks and yells of
"irly ono hundred slaves, he hurriedly
iped himself in pants and slippers
tpped out on his front piazza.   He
* surrounded with a largo uiim-
ves who were frantic with tcr-
'uio ho surveyed the heavens
... of painful apprehension.
b ,A?-j- j the crowd an old negro
R*\ v.- NVAv, in whose piety ho had much
confidence, ho addressed him in this wise:
("Uncle Joe, do you watch tho 'seven
stars' and 'the ell and yard,' and when
you see them start come Into the 'big
house' and wo will have o word of
prayer."
Of course the Pleiades were immovable, nor did the empyreal suns that blaze
In tbe belt of Orion "shoot madly from
their spheres." As a consequence the
hypothetical "word of prayer" was unspoken. The return of daylight blotted
out the meteors and calmed the superstitious fears of master and slave.
Most astronomers tell us that another
such spectacle will probably never be
witnessed again through all the generations of men, St. John, who was a
prisoner in Patmos, says: "I beheld
when he had opened the sixth seal" that
"the sun became as blood; and the stars
of heaven fell unto the earth, even as n
flg tree casteth her untimely figs when
she is shaken of a mighty wind."—Rev.

somo terror of tho onl, standing ready to run
away with liis tongue, has caused many n
Japanese youth to speak the truth.
The Japanese havo a horror of tlio darkness; they always keep a light burning to
ward off ghosts. Tho junkmen believe in a
ghost who comes to them and politely asks
to borrow a dipper.    The answer decides tho

the bottom can bo knocked out and thrown
at him he disappears. In this last case
the act must be accompanied by an incantation, or tho ghost turns into a sea cappa—a
many clawed monster—who will drag tho
junk to the bottom.
The Japanese aro a gentle, sensitive race,
very much under the influence of tbeir emotions. Love with them is a serious matter,
often one of life or death. Disappointment
in lovo or desertion frequently ends in suicide. Sometimes the girl becomes an avenger
and implores tho gods to curso or visit with
death tho destroyer of her peaco. Tho passions which thrill and torment tho human
■soul aro as intense in far away heathen Japan
as hi those lands which boast a higher civili-
zfilion.— Philadelphia Press.
A Cold Storugo Sociable.
A well known Chicago attorney, who has
musical and literary tastes, accompanied his
wifo tho other night, under protest, to a
"sociable" at her church, in one of the fashionable southern suburbs. Tho young enthusiast who hod in charge tho music and
literary programme was dead onto him as
soon as ho entered, and ho asked him to favor
tho company with a piano solo. There was
no way out of it, so he had to chase himself
over the keys for a brief period. At the wind
upjof the regular programme tho young enthusiast uroso, and, in tho manner of all
young church enthusiasts, said; "Wo havo all
been delighted this evening by tho piano solo
of our dear brother , and venture to say
that ho will favor us at our next sociable
with a brief paper upon an Interesting and
appropriate subject, and 1 think I may promise that ho will do bo." Well, the lawyer
found himself caught between th bases and
ho bad to lie down. Dit-t ho got beautifully
oven. lie did road n paper at the next socla-
blo, and its subject was "Cold Storage." Ho
argued that a vast refrigerating Btore house
could bo connected by a system of under*
grouud pipes with tho various church sociables iu tho city and suburbs, and that tho extreme coldness generated at theso gatherings
could bo piped to tho store house for the
preservation of eggs, fruit, meat and vegetables. It wa3 a masterly effort, though It
was not*, fully appreciated.*—New York Star.
Tlio Return Editor.
One of the curiosities of monthly literature
i:; the editor who rends and rejects inauu*
scripts. He is usually a man of profound
knowledge, deep sympathetic feeling and
other literary attributes. His salary and perquisites aro large, for ou him devolves the
duty of selecting articles for a magazine that
(8 mado up three years in advance. Personal
fooling does not sway his judgment, other-
wise tho number of persistent literary attempts would be smaller.
The literary style makes up in forco and
cL'iiruoss what It lacks in delicacy and re*
linement. He Is a guardian of tho Immortals
*and an obscurer of reputations.
Ho has different ways of allaying the sting
of rejection. In many cases contribution!
aro received with thanks and declined in the
Eomo manner. He often requests that tho
nbsenco of criticism bo excused, and usually
obtains his request. During a long, unclouded literary career the writer has received the
manuscript of several articles, which, from
their originality or somo other inexplicable
causo, could not bo used. The letters accompanying these roturns, stripped of verbiage,
would equal, In substance, tho following note:

Photography In Science.
We have said that photography owes more
to chemistry and chemists than to the opticians. Fairly good pictures can bo taken
without a lens, through a more pin hole In the
shutter of a dark room. Such pictures, ho w-
evor, require nn exposure of from half au
horn* to nn hour, whereas with a lens the
timo of exposure need not be longer than a
second for tho mmt- ubjeot. Cb*»|i Iom**.
not costing moro than three or four dollars,
can bo made to give surprisingly good pictures when managed properly. The optician,
however, has It in his power to greatly enhance- tho perfection of tho photographer's
work, especially in portraiture, in instantaneous photography, and in astronomical work.
One can think of-glass as a plastic material
which tho optical sculptor mold a and forms so
that the rays of light in passing through the
surfaces shall not form distorted Images of objects on tho sensitive plate. The want of perfection of the optical surfaces is not so apparent
in landscape photography as In the photography of the stars. In astronomy the objects
which nro photographed are comparatively
simple, and any distortion of figure Is readily
recognized. In this science, therefore, the
highest degree of skill Is required of the op
tician.—Professor John Trowbridge In Scrib-
nor's.

amount of the bill for the whole period, while
bo actually makes a payment of a sixth of the
bill when he gets the goods and a similar payment every succeeding month. When the account runs for a year the burden is not so
heavy. If people can pay cosh they should,
and every honest dealer In our line of business will tell them so.
"It Is unquestionably true that the form of
payment is a temptation to purchase beyond
the means to pay. "We have no trouble In
selling. Our greatest difficulty Is to keep the
bill down to what we consider a safe limit.
People do not stop to think that they pay for
their privilege of making installments at a
tolerably high rate. One reason of this lack
of judgment is probably because women do
so much of the buying at the monthly payment stores. They often fall to estimate
carefully what they can do, and the result Is
that they become a source of trouble to
thomselves and ua Often, too, men who
avero drawing good salaries at tbe timo of the
purchase, get out of work soon after, and
any miscalculation on their part makes payment an uphill work. The Bpreatl of the
payment stores has been suprlslng. Almost
every large city now has a number of such
concerns, which seem to do more than
thoir ordinary share of business. In Chicago I doubt if there are as many
as there wero two or threo years
ago. The reason of this Is not that the scheme
does not work successfully, or that there havo
sprung up too many for the population. The
capital required for such a business is much
greater than that which is requisite for a cosh
trade. It was a common practice for dealers
to realize on their monthly notes at 2 or 8 per
cent, a month. Thoy wero unable to carry
their own paper, or borrow at legal rates, and
the result was that a number of concerns have
failed during tho last year ortwo. I think lt
Is all nonsense to talk of the monthly payment stores cutting into the regular trade
disastrously. We catch a class of patrons
who would uot deal at a cash store, since they
would uot bo likely to save up tho necessary
money. I believo that monthly payment
stores aro au Incentive to thrift and economy,

Our Postal System.
If there ls any point on which our postal
system does not stand In need of Improvement lt is In tbe cheapness of postage. Our
newspapers are carried within the county of
their publication for nothing, and everywhere else for next to nothing, and a letter
of an ounce weight Is transported from any
point to any other ot our enormous area of
3,600,000 square miles for the smallest unit of
letter postage known In Christendom. But a
Tar moro Important matter, and ono wholly
neglected, Is that of postal delivery. In other
civilized countries the postofflco, receiving a
letter from the writer, undertakes to deliver
it to the person addressed.
In our own happy land tbe postoffice receives the letter, and (except In the case of a
privileged SO per cent, of the people) undertakes to carry lt to within five or ton miles of
tho person addressed, and keep it there till
called for. This is the mere barbarism of
postal service, worthy of the dark ages before
Rowland Hill. The enormous cost and loss
which lt Involves become obvious to any one,
on a few minutes'reflection. For example:
A man living three miles from the postofflco
Is anxiously expecting a letter of great importance, which may arrive any time within
a fortnight He goes dally to look for lt, and
on the sixth day he gets it That letter cost
him twelve hours of walking, or six hours of
travel for himself and horse, In othor words,
tho postago on that letter has been virtually
$2.03, or more. Tho government does not got
the money, but the citizen loses it—Dr. Bacon

"Ike"   IXutcliinHun'ri   Adventure   wilh    Hit
Father lu Carry in-*-- Lathi.
Mr. B. P. Hutchinson has a promising son
Isaac, of whom this story is told: "Old
Hutch," as tho world onlls hhn, was seated
one afternoon on the fence surrounding a
piece of his property upon which a comfortable dwelling house was being put up. The
veteran merchant was whittling a stick of
wood and superintending the actions of "Ike,"
who, under his instructions, was transferring
a lot of laths from tho open air to the interior
of the unfinished house in a wheelbarrow. It
was not an easy task. Anybody who has
tried it knows how hard It is to wheel a barrow up a single plank. But "Young Hutch"
was performing the job creditably.
Old Hutch watched and whittled for
awhile in silence. Then on idea struck him,
and ho lumbered down off the fence and approached his perspiring son.
"Die," said ho, "you know as much as an
oyster."
Ike mado no reply, but looked a littlo sulky.
"See here," went on tho old man, "don't
you see that you can get twice as many lathi
onto that wheelbarrow if you pile them
crosswiso instead of lengthwise, as you've
been doing? Just watch me, and see the load
I'll take In there."
The boy silently watched his father laboriously pile up tho sticks. When ho started
the wheelbarrow slowly up tho plank a bystander might have perceived a huge grin ot
delight spreading itself over "Young Hutch's-"
features.
When Old Hutch reached the brick doorway ho stopped. Why I Well, because whon
piled crosswise the laths wero too long to permit the wheelbarrow to enter. Tho old man
turned slowly round aud mopped his brow
with a red silk handkerchief.
Old Hutch lookod at Young Hutch.
Young Hutch looked at Old Hutch.
"Father," said tho younger of the twain,
deliberately, "you don't know as much as tbe
shell of an oyster."
XI10 old man told the Century club crowd
all about It the next day, and vowed, as hi
related the clrcu instance, that Ike would bi
a bigger man than his brother Charley some
day.—-Chicago Tribuno.
Veil,   Verily.
What doth it profit a man!
Ia the morning ho ariseth and putteth on
his new spring overcoat and goeth forth humming a jocund lay.
And when noon Is come, lol the wind
riseth and prevalleth over all that region
round about
And the pre valency with which it prevalleth Is more prevalent than any other prev
rdency that hath prevailed In all time.
And the wind beateth upon that man, yea,
it smiteth him sore.
Also doth it rain, and when even is come,
lot the coat is spoiled I
And the man taketh unto himself a cold,
and wist not what he is going to do about lt
Now, on the morrow, ho putteth on the
winter overcoat, lest, per ad venture, it bi
cold even yet again and snoweth.
And, even as on the preceding day, the
weather shifteth itself about and waxeth very
hot
And tho man doeth likewise, even as the
weather waxeth he hot
And many days and many nights doth thii
thing continue, and no man knoweth the day
nor the hour when the weather changeth.—

From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is im*
ported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, arc now relegated to thc
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of thc extiaordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have occurred
und, t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used *.ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro]
fession and the public, as wc "re of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We arc sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, Hia
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnancellor Sir \\.

the petitioners say, hy the dam at Beaver

Under thc above heading an article
appeared in the Free Press of yesterday
in which alter giving the particulars of
an accident which happened to a little
girl of seven years, named Alico Thomas,
it was statedthat "Dr. Eberts, the Wellington Colliery Surgeon, was .sent for
and quickly arrived. He found, etc."
This statement is incorrect. Dr. Eberts
was ho( "sent for" consequently he did
not "quickly arrive" or "attend to the
child's injuries." Once more we would
suggest te our evening contemporary
that oae of the main features in the
items of any newspaper should be veracity. Vague, unverified reports should
be the abhorred of all newspaper editors.
As n matter of fact, Dr. Praeger, tho Colliery Surgeon, attended the child in
question. We would just wish to add
a word of caution to our esteemed con-
temporarv, viz., to exercise a little more
caution in the future as to its facts,
otherwise a long suffering public will at
laBt begin to detect the unreliability of
its news.
