The following is the list of names of

appeal for aid to the sufl'erers by the
late disaster in Seattle.
Thc amount already collected is a
guarantee that the citizens of Nanaimo
have not forgotten the help thoy received
from neighboring towns during their
own troubles.
The present list will be increased considerably when the collectors have visited the balance of the persons residing in
the various wards.
The collectors in the North Ward, J.
Abrams and A. Haslem, owing to n pressure of business, have not been able to
give as much timo to collecting as they
would wish, but say that their subscription list already shows over $100.
The lists will be printed every day:

AMERICAN  DIPLOMATS  SCORE.
Loudon, June 18—The Koelmsoli /.ei-
tung, commenting on the Samoan question, says "that it is nol of the slightest
importance lo Germany who reigns in
Samoa."
The chief point which German delegates had to consider was that proper
provision he made for Ihe safety of Ibe
lives and propertv of German subjects.
These questions German delegates mny
be trusted to solve. It is considered significant that this article which may be
accepted as more or less as really in-
' j spired, contains no reference to German
I claims for Indemnity, which has constituted one important element of discord
in the Conference. This omission is regarded as foreshadowing the withdrawal
of Germany from her position which up
to this time she has stoutly maintained
and indicates a triumph for American
Diplomacy.
RULED A FAMILY.
Paris, June 13.—A shocking tragedy

A   HOPELESS  VIEW.
A gentleman once overheard two mo-1
cbanics in Hyde Park having the most
sensible conversation on baldness that he !
ever listened to. They were talking of
some advertisement of a balsam for the
hair, and one oi them said to thc other,
"Balsam, be hanged I Do you suppose the
Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge would be both as bald as bell
handles if money could save 'cm'."'
EXPULSION FROM SWITZERLAND.
Berlin, June 13.—It is reported here
that Ihe German government will not
oreak off diplomatic relations with Switzerland on account of the expulsion from
Switzerland of the German Police Inspector Wahlgemutl.
It is the consensus of opinion that Ihe
incident is closed, but that Germany may
perhaps apply vexatious measures in regard to frontier regulations.
ASKKn io DUAL HARSHLY WITH ANARCHISTS.
London, June 13.-The governments
of Russia, Germany and Austria have
sent an identical note to Ihe Swiss government, asking the latter lo deal in a

nppeared for the defendant, and in his
address to the Bench said that the defendant was drunk on the day in question
and didn't know what took' place. Defendant said he was a deck bund on the
steamer R. Dunsmuir, and ou the evening previous to the alleged robbery had
worked till long after midnight. ' Next
morning he, in company with one of his
mates, went io the Commercial Hotel

He didn't know if he were in any other

The Bench ordered the deieudant to
pay costs and to enter into recognizances
to keep the peace and to appear for

JOHNSTOWN NEWS.
Johnstown, June 13.—Edward Swine-
ford, of Sf. Louis, who has been here
seurchingsl'or the liodies of bis wile and
mother who were lost on the express
train, has been sent home a raving maniac. The knowledge of the fate of his
wife and aged mother robbed him of his
senses. A telegram from New York was
received at noon to-day stating that 1,000
Italians were en mute to Johnstown to
work on the wreck. That was very welcome news to contractors who are convinced that they will get very little work
out of Ihe men now on the ground. Two
more bodies were recovered this afternoon and taken to the morgue. They
are not yet identified at this writing.
Work commenced this morning on a
large frame building which will be used
as the Cambria Iron Works Co's Store
and Meat Market. Drummers representing all branches of business are here in
droves making arrangements to get their
former customers started in business.
Nobody who is anxious to get started in
business again will have any difficulty
in getting a stock of goods and all the
time they want to pay for them.
iIblldren mid More Eyes.
The large number of children wearing
spectacles whom one meets in the streets
and parks in this city frequently suggests the enquiry, "Is the average eyesight of Young America deteriorating, or
is the wisdom of caring for the eye becoming more apparent to the average
American parent ?" "Certainly the trade
in spectacles has grown amazingly in the
last few years said a Broadway oculist
the other day, "and parents pay more
attention to sore or weary eyes from their
children than they used to. In my
youth people thought il all nonsense to
put spectacles on children, and little
waB known, comparatively, of the
proper methods of grading the glasses
to the eye. Now the science is in a high
state of development, and probably as
many parents put glasses on their children as a mere preventative of serious
damage tu (he sight as for actual present
I necessity." And yet,on the other hand,
j one cannot walk in thc parks nnd streets
without seeing hundreds of babies in
perambulators wheeled by careless
nurses, who allow Ihe sun lo stream inlo
the faces of their little charges, heedless
of the serious results which must follow.
One sees the hapless babies turning and
twisting their necks in an endeavor to
rest Iheir tired orbs from lhc pitiless
glare, all to no purpose. The better class
of perambulators have shinies, ii is true,
bul nurses seldom bother to adjust them
al an angle where Ihey do any good—

THE  CRONIN  CASE.
Chicago, June 13.—The grand jury m
the Cronin case to-day heard the testimony of a large number of witnesses, all
of whom had given evidence before the
coroner's jury. It is not thought probable that body will be ready to consider
the indictment until the middle of next
week. Alex. Sullivan remained quietly
in his cell all day, refusing to see visitors.
He will be taken to court at one o'clock
to-morrow morning, when Judge Tulley
will render his decision on the question
of admitting bim to bail. Luke Dillon
leaves for Philadelphia to-night on the
ground that be had business to attend to,
that bis business is suffering and that he
must be at home. The State Attorney is
not at all pleased with the step and is
said to have told Dillon so in forcible
language. He considers that he should

Ihe Governor of Illinois for the surrender
of Maroney and McDonald, chargod with

was presented that the accused are guilty

"THE   GREATEST OF THESE   IS
CHARITY."
We merely refer in this article to ibe
charity which consists in tbe giving to
those who are in  need.    Wo nre by no j
means sure that the practice of this yir- j
tue of charity, in the sense in.whicli we
use it, is as commendable as it would be !
ii   used   in   its   broader,  nobler sense ;j
however, that may   be,   the   generous
offer of help to those who arc in worse
plight than ourselves, is a pleasant thing j
to contemplate, inasmuch us it not only !
warms the heart of tbe recipient towards
the giver, but it also helps to weave a:
subtle bond of kindly friendship in the'
hearts of the givers themselves.    Cynics '
have toid us that if we would lose the
affection of a friend the readiest method
compile)- such end is to j
| of the matter when he asserted that the
j "world was composed of men and women, mostly fools." We repeat, the
world likes to be humbugged. Nor does
I it feel any ill-will towards the showmen,
who. when detected, cry with Mrs. Clup-
riN.s: " My Lord 1 will not deceive you.
It's only the old snake with a new coat
of paint." We have read somewhere
that the best remarks of great writers
have been made with an almost affected
want of emphasis. But now-a-days emphasis is the one thing needful. " Protend," says Mr. Leslie Stephen, "to
have special information, and you will be
credited with originality for stating tbat
the earth is round. Communicate accurate and attainable information in a
straightforward manner, and you will be
sel down as an ignoramus.
MISCELLANEOUS     NOTES.
A recent case just decided in tbe Queen's
Bench Division (London) has, besides giving rise to much toothsome scandal
among the "Upper Crust" of English
society, raised both difficult and delicate
questions of morals and law. The following comments are from the Spectator:
"The action brought by Messrs. Head,
of Sloane street, against  Mr.   Powell,
formerly a lieutenant in the 11th Hussars,
has ended very  fortunately for Messrs.
Head.   Tbey had no doubt a large bill,
I and tbey wore entitled to be paid bv some
with winch to accomplish such end is to j onp     m ^^ ^ ^.^    • s ^
do him a favor.   W e are  by  no means n ,   notwithstandi     the vcrdict 0,
prepared to take such a pessimistic view the tQ consi(lemble doubt  No
incline toj
of life, but on the otherjhnnd incine i» j question has been more often before the
the belief that prompt and generous aid j CoU].b t,mn fte Mmiy Q, R luls)>lmd for
j debts contracted by bis wife.   Since the
given to those in distress, leaves behind
it a lasting effect which long survives
both the memory of tho distress and its
causes. Such aid as Seattle and other
American cities sent to Nanainio at the
time of the last great explosion, did
more towards drawing closer the bonds
of friendship and liking between us and
and our generous neighbors, than any
"Commercial I'nion" or mutually advantageous treaty could ever hope to accomplish. Recognizing this fact, we bail
with pleasure tbe open-hearted generosity which has distinguished our citizens,
as evidenced in the published lists of the
sums subscribed in aid of Ibe sufferers
by the Seattle fire. It is the recollection
of generous deeds such as this,which will
tend to allay irritation in the event of
friction arising between the two great
English-speaking nations; anil we need
uot be students of history to find out that
where the people of two countries entertain warm feelings of respect and liking
for one another, that governments, no
matter how tbey may blunder, or malcontents, no matter how tbey may try
from interested motives to fan I be
smouldering flame6 have but little chance
of success in tlieir endeavors. Wo know
well that the sum of money which Nanaimo and district will send to Seattle,
acceptable though it may be, will yet nol
be valued half so dearly as the evidence
of tbe warm-hearted sympathy of our
citizens, of which it is the unmistakable
evidence and practical outcome. Especially is this kindly feeling between our
great neighbors and ourselves valuable
at the present moment. Events might
arise in the near future, either on this
coast or on the Atlantic, tbe record of
which would so inflame men's minds that
war might possibly be tbe result, ll is
then that this feeling of which we speak
would be doubly valuable. This feeling
that as we are already indissolubly connected by blood, traditions, history, laws,
language and literature with the people
of the United States, so we are connected
by yet one more link in the chain which
binds together the two greatest nations
upon earth—the link of warm-hearted
brotherly sympathy for each other's
troubles. Madame DE Staei. has tohl
us tbat "self abnegation is higher than
all the efforts of genius;" and ber famous
apophthegm should be written iu letters
of gold, though in justice to the people
of Seattle and Nanaimo, we feel bound to
add that the spirit of the great Frenchwoman's saying is both appreciated and
practised by them.
WHOLESOME  IG SOU ANCE.
"A certain amount of wholesome ignorance is necessary to the enjoyment,
or even tbe toleration of existence." So
writes Dean Church. There is more
truth than we are apt lo suspect in this
aphorism. One's friends—we say it
boldly—are tbe happier in that tbey
sometimes think they are sipping wine at
*u0 per doz., when in reality the composition over whicli they smack their
lips might not have cost a third part of
that sum. The same remark applies
equally we have noticed lo the consumption of cigars. Wc know men to whom j Enginer,
if you give a cigar which tbey believe to j Washin
be of a specially line brand and great
price, appear to enjoy it with infinitely
more gusto than if you were to acknowledge it's lowly origin—say Chinese
manufacture, price 10 cents. This
"wholesome ignorance" being taken for
granted, what right have our friends to
complain when tbey cannot detect the
flavour or the importation ? We have
been led inlo these somewhat discursive
remarks owing to tlie fact that we have
frequently observed thnt those persons
wbo "get along" the best, are those wbo
are not afraid of sounding their own
praises. He who will stand up in the
market place and proclaim to passers-by
bow wise, witty, and  wonderful  a man
effect of recent legislation has been to
give a married woman as complete control
of her own property as if sbe were single,
it is only fair that the other side should
be free from the weight of obligations not
deliberately and voluntarily incurred. It
has indeed been held, quite independently of the Married Women's Property
Acts, that if a wife has no authority from
her husband to pledge his credit, and if
she is sufficiently supplied with necessaries according to her position in life, a
tradesman who chooBes to trust her must
take his chance of her being able to pay
him. This view of the law has sometimes
operated hardly upon shopkeepers. But
it lias more often protected rich men,
and men not rich, from demands which
bad no semblance of justice, except on
the plea that the plaintiff ought not to
go without hiB money. Mr. Powell was
uot even tbe husband of the lady, who
ordered gold tabliers and "crepe de Chine
embroidered metallic 'fronts.' and a
"guipure lace and jet embroidered
flounce,'' and similar articles of universal
wear, trom Messrs. Head. Sbe resided
with him in Berkely Square, and passed
under his name, and Messrs. Head's
foreman, who seems to have kept himself
singularly unspotted from the world,
trusted her because of the locality in
which she lived. There is, no doubt,
much to be snid for holding that Miss
Ni'n.n, to give the lady ber real name,
was liable for these luxurious ornaments
of the person. But against Mr. Powell
there was no particular evidence, except
that be had seen ber wearing them, and
bad not directed them to be sent back
where tbey came from. On the other
band, he had given her credit with
another firm to the extent of two hundred pounds, while she in ber turn had
other friends who gave her presents from
time to time. That Mr. Powell's practical wisdom is not much may be gathered from tin' fact that when be took
Miss Nunn to the librarians', and gave a
general order for theatrical tickets, lie
threw a thousand pound note on the
counter, and walked away without waiting for ihe change. The jury may have
thought, and may have been right in
thinking, that a young gentleman who
treated money after Biich an insane
fashion did not deserve any particular
indulgence. Tbey may iiIbo, as Btern
moralists, have objected to his mode oi
life altogether. But immorality does not
deprive a man of bis legal rights as a
citizen, even if be pushes vice so far as to
play skittle-pool and drink something
stronger than tea. Juries are very fond
of acting upon the principle of "my aunt's
case," and taking care that, if goods have
been supplied, somebody shall pay fer
tbem, no matter who. Rut these benevolent aberrations ought to be judicially
checked."
third in what tbey call cloth, that is I
prints and bright-coloured stuff. Seeing
tbat the nativeB feed themselves and that
the cloth is valued at 25c. (about) a yard,
its original cost being about four, it must
be allowed that the labour does not cost
much. The earnings of tlie workpeople
vary somewhat, as the amount mentioned is contingent on each pair (a man
and his wife) bringing in and preparing
4,000 nuts a month, an increase in this
number being paid accordingly. The
value of.a ton of copra delivered at San
Francisco is about $60, and is equivalent
to about 4,300 cocoauuts. The amount
gathered last year amounted to about
180 tons, so taking tbe salaries of the
manager and natives at ">1,700 (the manager gets $60 a month and all found), the
profit per annum should be about $0,000
—£1,800. The schooner that takes the
copra pays her own way by bringing
down goods to trade. The soil of the
island seemed to be very fertile though
based on a foundation of coral.

So much has been written of late
about Samoa, that a short description
of its chief article of export may be of interest to such of our readers as may not

ton Island belongs to Messrs.
Greig. llicknell ii Co., of Honolulu, and
Is under Hritish protection. Its main produce is copra, or the inside of cocoanuts.
There are on the island, besides Mr.
BriggS, 10 men, -0 women and some half
a dozen children, all natives ol Peru, an
island in (he Kingsmill group, further to
tbe west, whence tbey are brought on a
three years' engagement. The method
of preparing the copra is as follows:—The
men collect the nuts, a certain area being
assigned in which they must work dur-
the different days. They are not allowed
to pick from tbe trees but must confine
themselves to taking the nuts from the
ground when tbey fall. This is in order
to prevent waste, as a man in getting up
be is, will find probably to his own J u eocoanut tree might cut down unripe
amazement, that the public bave actually i fruit with the others, which unripe nuts

course each one of us says: "AllI this ] fruit is picked up the husks are stripped

Mr. John Dillon, Sir Thomas Esmonds
and Mr. Deasy, envoys from the National
league in Ireland to Australia, have arrived there safely. Mr. Dillon adopted
an unusually mild tone in his exposition
of the wrongs and grievances of his native
country. He and his brother envoys had
not, he said, come to beg, hut rather to
seek the moral support and sympathy of
tlieir fellow-countrymen at the Antipodes.
He asserted that he and his friends desired no more than was enjoyed by Australians, namely the right to govern
themselves. Surely our readers will
agree with us that there is but slight
analogy between the two cases of Australia and Ireland, so far as self government is concerned. The one insuperable
objection which the English Ministry has
to offer against Ireland having not only
self government, but a king or queen all
to themselves, is the geographical position of the Emerald Isle. Were Ireland
in the Southern ocean, then Mr. Dillon's
argument would have some point. Australian advices state that "no political
significance whatever can be attached to
the movement the Irish envoys are so
anxious to inaugurate, and none bul
Irish Catholics appear to take the
slightest interest in the proceedings."

"l'u, I want f500 for ru# Patriarch's ball
dress,*1
"Thitaderl mv dear. Didn't you get a new
ono for tbo Assembly ball! Do you want a
now gown every week! When your mother
was n girl sho woro a wliito muslin frock to
every bull of tho sonsou."
"Yes, papa dear, but you know Shakespeare says, 'Costly thy habit as thy purse
can buy,'" and it's my first season, nnd you
wouldn't have mo look iiUe a fright."
"Oh, yes, that is very pretty, but doesn't
ibo same gentleman remark somewhere that
'Our purses should bo proud, our garments
poor."1
'■But ho didn't livo in New York, papa, and
go to Dt'linonico balls." And then poor papa,
bring nothing but u lueeli American millionaire, grumbled and fumed a little, aad
Dually put two crisp greenbacks into a little
rosebud hand, and, witb a kiss as light as
Ihistlo down and after calling him "you
darling old dear," sbe ran away.
An unwilling but interested listener to tho
interesting conversation, 1 began to wonder what It cost to dross a young lady of
fashion. At tho rato of $200 a week it would
Iio over s-10,000 a year, and as my income was
only hulf that and my lady love a person of
fashion I pondered, 1 asked a young married man at tho club how much his wifo
spent a year on her clothes. I kuow I put
tbo question meekly, but he howled at me to
"go to thunder with my impertinence,"
and so 1 went—or, rather, I weut to visit
au aged female relative. Sho told mo
thnt clothes had gotten beyond her, and said
all sho know was that her granddaughter
could "diiuco a f 300 ball dress to ribbons in
>i niglit." Then 1 became frightened, and so
consulted a nice littlo debutante who volun-
leered to post me on clothes,
"Of course tbero is no limit to the amount
you cau spend on clothes," sho began. "If
you want to go to "Worth and Pingat, or, in
fact, to any of tho fash ionablo Paris dress-
makors, you will be obliged to pay n pretty
reasonable price. 1 have a very nico ward-
robo this year, and it cost papa just S'J.OOO.
When wo camo home from Europe I brought
just two Paris dresses, because, don't you
know, if you can't say, 'Some of my things
nro imported,' you are really nobod}'. One
was a perfect lovo of a ball dress, you kuow.
I woro it tbo othor night, that palo yellow
tulle, all embroidered in silver, with the big
yellow sash and Batin bodice, lt looked very
simple, but it cost mo $300, uud then papa
bad lots of duty to pay on it. It wus made
from a special design and tho design destroyed, so that it could not bo duplicated.
"Then I brought over a carriage dross. 1
haven't worn it yet—I'm waiting until the
other girls wear theirs, tben I shall come out
in mine. It wasquitoa cheap gown; only
OOst $150, It is in four shades of fnwu aud
of silk and velvet, made in ono of thoso loug
directoiro redingotcs tbat are so much worn,
with a sash of crimson. It was made for the
Princess Somebody, I believe, but sbe would
not pay her last bill, so tbey sold it to mo for
half price. You need not say anything
about that, though."
Hei o sho paused for a moment and I nsked
her if her dresses wero as costly as thoso of
tho Misses de Batteur up the avenue.
"1 should hopo so! Why, those girls employ a $■> dressmaker, and do all iho plain
sewing themselves, nnd iheir father drosses
tho whole five of them on $3,000 a year! 1
do not mink 1 am nt all extravagant, but I
could uot dress on $000 a year."
Then v. o camo baei; lo tho subject of ber
clothes and what they cost.
"Somo sweet littlo dancing gowns, olio for
each nf the Delmonico halls, only cost mo $100
each. 1 bavo a specially nice one for tbo
Patriarchs to-morrow—a wliito silk cropo
lolse. with an accordion plaited skirt all
tucked wilh whito satin ribbon, and a jar-,
dlnleroof lilies of tbo valley down ono sido
uud about the waist of tho brocade, aud an
empire sash of cl.itb of silver. Obormloy
made that.
"Then theio is ouo for tho New Year's ball,
of light red Brussels net, nil caught up with
liny black humming birds, nud ouo for tbe
last assembly, of roso pink gauze, made a la
Qrecque—awfully sweet gownl I bavo just
seven of tbem. 1 need n fresh ouo for each
ball, you know, und tben 1 wear eaoh ouo
four or five times ut small dances and the
opera and dinners. Witb my imported
dress, thut nialtes only eight ball dresses—
not at ull extravagant, do you think!"
After assuring her that I would uot dosuch
u tbiug, wo proceeded.
"Well, you see, I needed two new street
costumes, so 1 weut down to Redferu, aud
be turned mo out two beauties for $160 each,
both with hats and jackets to match. One
iu that dark green and black cloth gown that
fits like n glovo. I woro it j esterday, you
remember—big buttons dowu the front
and long, straight flaps to the polonaise.
Directoiro, you know. Kverytbiug iSj directoiro and empire this year. I have a plaiu
cloth jacket with that and a littlo velvet
toque, with a prince's feather in it This
blue cloth, touched up with tho silver braid,
is tbo other dross.  1 wear it with a long boa."
But when I asked about tho coat to go witb
it I was informed that nono was required,
because tho gown wns lined all through
with chamois skin, and was us warm as
ii sealskin without Iho bulk of tho lat-
tor. So do not imagine when you seo one
of your feminine friends walking about without a jaoket, and tho thermometer down to
Mro, that she is silently freezing. She isn't.
If sho hasn't a chamois lining to her dress she
has one of cotton batting; but this latter
ouly iu case she is very thiu, when it serves a
twofold purpose of giving her warmth and
rounding out hernnglos.
".My tea gowns wero nuirvelousJy cheap.
You know that green niul pink brocade, all
bordered with bumming birds' wings, so
blzarrot" continued.my tutor. "Well, I
only paid $82 for that, A perfect bargain I
call it. Then 1 havo that morning dress of
pink and whito fiatmel mado Marguorito
fashion, und tho ouo of pearl gray cashmere.
Tbey cost mo $30 each. 1 bail them made ut
home. I should liko two moro tea gowns. 1
hear ouo of Iho Van Vantry girls has seven,
but I cannot afford it this year, shoes and
stocking-: cost so much, you know."
It wns quite shocking to hear that hull
slippers of sntln were l<12npair, and you
could pay more for thoiu If you wished.
Swell walking shoes, witb patent loather
tips, woro either $5 or $8, aud houso slippers
$2, nud as for silken stockings, $3 and *-*
wero tho prices always paid for plain ones,
aud I was told you could dance a hole In the
heels in ono ovonlng without much trouble.
A church dress is quite necessary. It ls
the fashion to bo very plain at church, and
tho women, 1 behove, try to see who can
dress tbe plainest. A black alpaca, with a
vary quiet short seal jacket or a cloth with
scroll braid, Is tho corroot thing, aud a small
velvet or cloth bonnet, without strings. This
rig, without tho saoque, can bo procured for
something liko $50—New York Herald.

with 200. Somo peoplo absolutely won't see

OVERWORK THAI' KILLS.
A DISEASE THAT   IS  BLIGHTING  THE
LIVE6   OF   BUSY   MEN.
It It Incurable, but Men ol Small Jli-ui,-.;
C-Ulber N«ed Not Fear It—Women Fur
nlibLcMThan One Per Cent, of tbe Case**.
Vo Otl.-tr r.uu-l So Curbed  by It.
Few we»ks go by now in which  the community is uot btartled by iho intelligence
that some oiuii cf prominence has suddenly
become insane.    Some act of sudden and unreasonable violence or the demonstration cf
: mom astounding delusion compels attention
: to his condition,   Then, .Mends and relatives
remember he has been for some time "acting
queerly" and the question,  'How long boa
; his mind been affected.''' Is one that awakens
' much excited interest, e-speciail}' among t bote
having business relations trltll him, m* con*
' earned in bis estate.    "Beat aud quiet will
speedily restore him,;' say bli friends, and .so
physicians profess to hope.    He is secluded
in au asylum, or iu somo private rural m-
■ treat.   Tbe next that ll beard of bjin is tbat
experts  iu  cerebral   affect ions   nave  pro-
, nouncedhlsdiseaso "paresis."   I'a re •*!-*■:   The
I horror of tbe age; u slow death in life; a
malady as incurable and  inevitably fatal Oil
leprosy—tbat i* pun-Hi*-.
Perchance, after a time,  thi' victim may
seem to rally, to regain  his mental control,
: and hopeful friends «ill doubt the correol
uess of the physicians' diagnosis.    Hut in a
: few months the reaction comes, darker ami
j darker  the  cloud   wttloa  down   upon  tbo
afflicted mind, more and more feeble grows
: tbe body, slowly and surely life fades out
. How many iustauces of ibis fatal progression
! might be cited, among men not only locally
i prominent, but of   national   reputation  as
playwrights, actors, merchants and  financiers, were it desirable to call the painful
roll!   At least three, whose names are known
1 all over rhe laud,  are now  in or near New
j York, awaiting tho certain oud, nnd there Is
' not an insane  asylum   in   the   country, iu
1 which tbero are not numerous cases, of per-
■ sons of minor individual Importance, doomed
to death by paresis.
Generally the disease runs its course iu
! about three years from the time that it unquestionably declares itself, but there nro
cases—where it is induced altogether by alcoholism—in which the end Is delayed as
much as ten years, the greater pun of which
time the victim is n flaccid, paralyzed, drooling, helpless and hopeless imbecile or tortured by the saddest hallucinations—a condition from which death would seem to be a
happy release.
THK HISTORY  OF PARESIS.
As long ago as 1GTJ this peculiar variety of
cerebral affection was observed, but until
fifteen years ago it was rare nnd bad not been
so closely studied, accurately dcflued and the
knowledge concerning it so systematized as
now. WiJuin ten years it has constantly and
witb alarming rapidity increased iu the
United States, until now it i** uot too much to
say that it is our national terror, lu uo
othor part of the world is it so frequent. And
its blight is most apt to fall upon thoso who
are brightest, most mentally active. Stupid
people bave little reason to fear it, If they
keep sober, nor have women. Xot one per
cent, of tlie cases ure those of female.'--. The
average womau does not dangerously strain
her brain, but many men, in tlio eager competition, rapid life uud over excitation of
brain and nerves common to American existence, do so—and invito paresis.
Dr. Allan McLane Hamilton, who is recognized as ono of tho highest authorities upon
mental diseases iu this country-when consulted a fow days ago upon tbo subject of
paresis, for the purpOBeof this article, said:
ul see a great deal of It, In various asylums
and institutions, aa well as in my privato
practice, aud recogui.ee tbo fact, that it has
been, during ten years past, steadily nud
alarmingly increasing. It is a disease incident to tho rapid life of tbls country. Inn
majority of cases it is directly dependent
upon vice aud uot upon actual overwork
alone, lt is tbo fashion nowadays to call all
forms of structural disease of iho brain, witb
mental disturbance, 'general paresis,' but the
geueral uauie, dementia paralytica, is thc
proper term. Asn rule the disease attacks
persons who nro primarily dissipated, nnd
witb tbat dissipation have a certain amount,
probably excessive, of irregular mental work,
Nearly always it begins with somo depression,
despondency, or, very often, hypochondriasis.
After the period of depression- which lasts
Xora variable time, ensues extravagauco of
Ideas, which is an important feature of the
disease.
FURTHER DEVKI.OPMENTS.
"The so called 'illusions of grandeur' uow
entertained are of tbe most extravagant
character, the victims having vast confldenco
in their own powers. Somo of them claim
to possess tho entire wealth of the world aud
—more or less governed by this delusion—
give away presents most extravagantly,
spend their money in the most reckless way
ani cherish tho wildest schemes. Others
believe tbat tbey are specially appointed by
God to perform tremendous deeds, or achieve
great things, such as the establishment of
new faiths, or tho founding of new orders,
and deem themselves endowed with the
power of working miracles. Their schemes
are always colossal. Tho character of Colonel Sellers is simply an example of modified
paresis. His eye water scheme is distinctively that. Another notable fact is that
these vast illusions are meant for the good of
humanity; that those cherish iug thorn desire
to be great benefactors, and thoy aro foud of
conferring imaginary honors and grandiose
titles.
"While the patient is under tbe domination of these different illusions he is more or
less influenced by his surroundings, and Is
very apt to becomo violent ami abusivo when
bis Illusions are questioned or bis powers
doubted.
As the disease progresses in the brain, tbo
body wastes away, becomes foeblo, tlio
muscles are powerless and a condition of
paralysis sets in. Toward the eud the patient,
incapable of motion or consciousness, drools
saliva from bis open mouth, sees nothing
witb bis lack luster eyes, and gradually fades
away. At last comes death.—New York

There is a horse in the town of Sprague belonging to Allen Williams that has to be put
to bed to be shod. As blacksmiths do not
have beds in their shops for thu accomodation of such eccentric animals, Mr. Williams
has to carry a mattress and pillows to tho

not like to go to bed, and as it takes good
management to throw him dowu ou to n mattress, and get him into a mood aud a position
to have tbe blioea put on his hoofs, few blacksmiths like to undertake the job. A Norwich
man has done tbe job repeatedly, and almost
always the horse is driven to this city to
have new shoes put upou him. The horse is
thrown down und held on tho mattress by

on having the horses head bolstered up inn

thev can do to keep ahead of the laborers.
The road as so far located is very satisfactory, and though it will be necessary
to carry the new line under the E. ei N.
R. 11.,'it is hoped thereby to save a considerable amount of rutting through cou-
glamerate rock.
At the point where thc Northfleld hue
will puss under the E. A Y K. R. there
Ib at present a stream running, which it
will be necessary to turn in order to insure the stability of the road bed. Thc
Vancouver Coal Company has a great
many hands employed on the construction of the road, which, it is expected,
will be finished thiB summer,
The Chinamen who an' working on thc
line are camped on the Departure Bay
road und in their usual style bave constructed several sheds around which tbey
havo suspended strings of dried lish and
scraps of pork.
It is a great loss to Nanainio that a
feasible route for thc railroad could not
have been found leading to town. Thc
original Idea wus to bring the line out to
Carpenter's wharf but on surveying the
route it was found Impracticable as there
was some difficulty in procuring a crossing on tin' K. A N'. li. R. near lown.

this place and shirting for his home at
Alberni,Little again "bushed" himself,
and might never have returned alive, as
lie was in a very weak condition, had he
not been found by 11. Edwards some lew
miles bey 1 Alberni, who brought   him
to the Nannimo Hospital.
Wc expect thatonhis complete restoration to health Mr. Little will be able to
spin some yarns that will serve to cause
many a man to heap more fuel on the
camp lire before retiring, as he was lost
in a country abounding in panthers,
wolves and hears. Very few men have
been lost for so long and returned to
their friends without the consequences
being very seven1 and lusting, and Mr.
Little is to he congratulated on his lucky
escape.
Train I.mc
The midday train was 4fi minutes late
yesterday and various conjectures arose
as to the reason of the delay, the most
prominent of which was the belief that
r red Wcldon wus chasing another fawn.
This idea gained ground so fast that one
young lady was heard requesting her
escort to procure the animal lor her. She
wus horribly disappointed when told that
excess of freight caused the delay, Tlie
train is usually so punctual that several
persons were under the Impression that
their watches were wrong. This speaks
volumes for the manner in which the
line is conducted.

Two very strange fish arc on exhibition
at Macintosh's James Bay boat house
They were brought from Cowiohan Lake
yesterday, and anyone who can name
them properly will receive them as a
present, and will get a chroino besides,
The one fish is nbout four inches long,
with thc main building ol its body apparently bone and sinew, just like other
lish, and wings on the side built on the
principle of the jelly fish. The other
curious fish has a beak like a bird, und a
head like a California horned toad.
Anyone who is an expert in fish may
possibly name thc two reptiles, but they
are strangers to the majority of common
