Chicago, July ii.--1.ate last nighl several detectives from tbe Central Station
took their prisoner to Harrison. Street
Station ami locked bim up. The greatest
secrecy was observed by the officers and
from tbeir actions it was evident that
they had made an important arrest.
Tbey refused to say who tbeir prisoner
was, or why be was arrested. It was
said tbat the prisoner was tbe man who
drove Cronin from Conklin's lo the Carlson Cottage. Efforts to see ibe prisoner
were futile. The man who drove Cronin
from his oflice and "J. B. Siininonds"
are both wanted, but so far neither of
them has been discovered. The authorities are doing their very best lo learn
who it is that is supplying Martin Burke
at Winnipeg with money for bis defence.
The desperate fight is being made to
prevent Burke's extradition convinces the
police and the State Attorney that he is
the man who can furnish the connecting
link between the investigators and the
financial backers of the crime and also
the actual assassins.

11AII.WAV MATTERS.
Boston, July 5.-The United States
Senate Committee on Interstate Commerce, which has under investigation
the the relation of Canadian railways to
the Interstate Commerce laws and the
United States railways, began ils session
in this city to-day. Senator Cullom presided, and Senators (ionium, Blair, Harris and Regan, of the Committee, woro
also present. Senator Cullom explained
the purposes of tne committee's visit and
bad read the resolution under which the
committee is acting. President Bliss, of
tbe Boston and Albany road, addressed
the committee. He thought ihe Canadian roads shoiilal not ho allowed te enter
United States territory unless under tbe
same regulations to which American
roads were subjected, unles-a they paid
duties, considering the greater length of
roads in Canadian territory, and oilier
existing conditions on both sides. If the
law were fairly enforced on both sides,
nnd both sides" carried out its provisions,
the business of American roads would be
so Increased as lo enable them to deliver
their commerce and travel Irom the West
into Boston, anal rice versa, cheaper than
they were now enabled to do, and cheaper than Canadian roads could alo it. A
large portion ol the shipments of "-few
England to China was carried over Canadian roads at much less rates Ihan on
American roa.ls. This business would
betaken by American roads were it nol
for the Intel state law. The only gooal
effect the law had, was to slop temporarily the building of railroads. The law
bad been but little benefit except in establishing the stability of the through
rates, ami he thought it could be better
obtained by regular pooling. He thought
the long und short haul clause was
wrong. Some system of pooling would
be the best thing.
THE  FINANCIAL   BITUATION.
New York, July fl.—Dun's Review says:
"Though there has been a dullness usual
in the holiday week, business has been
fairly maintained In volume and is gradually improving in prospects. Fall trade
is expected lo commence earlier (ban
usual, and the local Indications in all
parts of the country lead dealers to anticipate an active season. Prices of commodities, in spite ot the rise in some
speculative markets, have, on the whole,
fallen during thc month about 2 per cent.,
and are now hardly 1'.j per cent, above
the lowest average ever recorded; but
there are signs of substantial improvement in tho most branches of Industry,
which impress observers with confidence
in the future. The monetary situation,
though threatened by large exports of
specie demands, is as yet undisturbed.
Nevertheless the stock market, which is
by many considered an indicator of tbe
future, has been sinking. The average
of prices has now declined (.321 per share
since June 12th, and while the fear of a
monetary press hereafter has been a factor of some Importance, it is clear that
the wars of Western, and to some extent
o: Eastern railroads, have disbeartene I
many investors an 1 caused much Belling.
JOHN   I.,   ull.I.IVAN.
New Orleans, July 1.—Sullivan now
weighs 202 pounds and severe training
has been abandoned, though he will take
mora' cxerci-e than an ordinary man
could endure. This morning a football
filled with Hour or meal, weighing aboul
twenty-five pounds, was tossed for Sullivan to Muldoon and hack again at distance of twenty-five feet, Sullivan receiving lhe heavy hall for forty minutes
without u sign of weakness. Neither
Muldoon or Cleary could siaml it long,
so alternated In receiving the hall ami
tossing it back to Sullivan every ten
minutes. Sullivan finished perfectly
fresh after his stand against both of tbem.
Those who saw him hurl the bull
witb a velocity that made Muldoon
staged- as he received It, were reminded
of the'John L. Sullivan of old. After
two minutes' rest Sullivan began skipping the rope and skipped a thousand
times without slopping. Sullivan Is reported to be the only man who ever accomplished this i'a-af* Then after n uiiii-
uie's interval came dumb bells. This
was repeated fifty limes, causing Cleary
and Muldoon to pant and blow, while
Sullivan Bcarcely breathed bard. Sullivan cau hit as hard as ever, and has lost
none of his oldtime lightning rapidity.
Once he hit the ball so hard as to split
the leather. His friends say that il he
can get a couple of these right-handers
onKilrain's head, the fight will be pretty
near over.
The arrival of Sullivan and the enthusiasm of his friends here does not dampen
the ardor of Kilrain's friends, whose
numbers seem increasing. While the
central portion of the city side with Sullivan, the upper sections are largely in
favor of Kilrain. At the Southern
Athletic Club most of the members seem
confident that Kilrain will win. Other
members of the club, in support of their
opinion,said that men like Billy Madden,
Arthur Chambers, and Dominick Me-
Callery, all of whom know hot!, men
well, would not be found on the side of
Kilrain ii they did not know what tiny
were doing. According to reports received, Sullivan has not near the wind
that Kilrain has, and he is, besides, entirely too heavy about thc hips.

Our school examinations have passed
oil with great eclat. Quite a large number of visitors were present, and took
great interest in lhe proceedings, Miss

Mr. Sutherland. Parents of pupils arc

during the last term.
Last Friday morning Mr. Salmond shot
a magnificent panther, measuring Beven
fee.', ia length, after the veraa-ious brute
had succeeded In demolishing one of his
calves and nearly lulling two others. No
wonder that when skinned the animal
was found to have a lining of fat on the
breast which would have done no discredit to a prize Berkshire. If we could
manage to extirpate their destructive
"felines" by presenting some testimonial
to each of our neighbors, wbo sueeeded
in killing one of them, we might then
manage to "go in for" sheep-breeding
with some chance of success. As it is at
present what with dogs, panthers,
wolves, &e., this, the most profitable of
all the farmers resources is all but totally
denied us.

There was a pic-nic on Monday held at
the bridge which crosses the Courtenay
River, lt was most successful, both as
to number of visitors and their enjoyment. The day's pleasure was succeeded
by a grand ball in the evening which was
held In the Knights of Pythias' Hall.
The dancing was kept up until broad daylight, the scene being a most brilliant
one when the gaiety was at its height.
Many of the ladies' dresses were most
recherche, and thc hall itself was very
tastefully decorated with flowers, evergreens, etc.

The food which is most enjoyed is the
food wo call bread nnd fruit.   In all my
! long medical career, extending over
forty years, 1 have rarely known an ln-
rtanco in whloh a child has not preferred
fruit to animal food. I have many times
been called upon to treat children for
; stomachic disorders induced by pressing
upon them animal to the exclusion of
fruit diet, and have seen the best results
i occur from the practice of reverting to
the use of fruit in the dietary. I say it
without the least prejudice, as a lesson
learned from simple experience, that the
most natural diet for the young, after
the natural milk diet, is fruit and whole
meal bread, with milk and water for
drink.
The desire for this same mode of sustenance is often continual into after years,
as if the resort to flesh were a forced
anal artificial feeding, which required
long and persistent habit to establish its
permanency aa a part of tbe system of
every day life. How strongly this preference taste for fruit over animal food prevails is shown by the simple fact of the
retention of these foods in tbe mouth.
Fruit is retained to be tasted and relished. Animal food, to use a common
phrase, is "bolted." There is a natural
desiro to retain the delicious fruit for full
mastication; there is no such desire, except in the trained gourmand, for the retention of animal substance. Ono further
fact which I have observed—and that
too often to discard it, as a fact of great
moment—is that when a person of mature years has, for a time, given up voluntarily the use of animal food in favor
of vegetable, tbe sense of repugnance to
animal food is soon so markedly developed that a return to it is overcome with
the utmost difficulty.
Neither is this a mere fancy or fad peculiar to sensitive men or over Benti-
mental women. I have been surprised
to see it manifested in men who were
tiie very reverse of sentimental, and who
were, in fact, quite ashamed to admit
themselves guilty of any such weakness.
I have heard those who, gone over from
a mixed diet of animal and vegetable
food to a pure vegetable diet, speak of
feeling low under the new system, and
declare that tbey must needs give it up
in consequence; but I have found even
these (without exception) declare that
Ihey infinitely preferred the simpler,
purer, and. as it seemed to them, more
natural, food plucked from the prime
sourco of food—untainted by its passage
through another animal body.—Richardson in Longman's Magazine.

Standing in a prominent hardware
storo tho other day, the Stroller watched
a lady purchase a pair of shears. She
decided upon the size and stylo desired
and tried four or fivo pairs, rejecting them all because, sho said, they
"squeaked." But sbe was finally suited
with a pair that didn't "squeak" and
went her way. As the accepted pair
happened to bo ono of those first refused, the salesman was asked how the
metamorphosis was effected. "Tliat,"
said he, "is one of the very simplest secrets of the man who sells shears. Observe this." He picked up a pair of
scissors whieh "squeaked" wofully when
worked. Then he ran his thumb and
forefinger thoughtfully down the Bide of
his noso and rubbed them over the scissors, which camo together as gently and
noiselessly as though saturated with oil
"That's all thero is of it," ho said.
"You see, there is always a littlo oil collected in tbo comers on tbe outside of
your nostrils. Scrub your nose as hard
as you will, the oil will be back there in
fivo minutes. So when a customer comes
in, tries a pair of shears and complains
that tbey squeak and come together hard,
wo can oil tbem up and make them
run smooth without exciting suspicion.
What was tho oil put on the noso for!
To help tho hardware man out, I suppose. But tben what I have told you Is
a good thing for all nervous peoplo who
don't like squeaky shears to know."—
Chicago Journal.
At tbe North Cape.
At Troinsoe, the sheltered capital of
northern Norway, our steamer remained
just long enough to allow us to visit an
interesting encampment of Lapps, and
their reindeer in the neighborhood. The
company we visited had pitched their
tents on the sido of the mountain, and
about a dozen or more seemed to live
comfortably enough in a space we might
portion off for so many hens and chickens. Both men and women were remarkably short, seldom more than four
feet high, witb eyes wide apart, and flat
expressionless faces.
They woro reindeer garments, witb
leather hoots up totho knee, and bright
colored hats in form of sou'westera on
tlieir tangled locks. At our request the
men called loudly to tho Lapp-in-chief,
who wa3 waiting for a summons upon
tho hills to bring down his herd of rein-
alicr, and very soon tho cries of tho dogs
and the rattliug of tho horns of the deer
were to bo beard, as the beautiful cre»-
turcs answered to the call of their master and bounded down the hillsides toward us. The patriarchal Lapp, after
wo bad mado a few vain attempts at exchanging courtesies, signified hecxpected
a handsomo donation for his trouble, and
on saying "good by," wo noticed that
tho Norwegian sailors who accompanied
us each gavo his coin in turn, it being
considered unlucky to part with a Lapp
without offering somo small gift—Temple Bar.

It is worth $80 a gallon, and the fivecana
contained 158 pounds of oil, valued at
SS00, or a littlo over $5 a pound.
Black birch trees do not yield oil as
the maple trees run sap. Thero is work
in getting the tender twigs, and labor in
the process of extracting the oil. One
ton of twigs yields just three pounds of
oil, and it took nearly fifty-threo tons of
twigs to yield tho ten gallons. This oil
is used in giving the wintergreen flavor
to confections of all kinds.—New London Telegraph. THE   NANAIMO   COURIER,   SATURDAY,

present agitating the Lower House. Mr.
IIi..H).stiixi: and bis parly, says our telegram, have tvrnngfrom Lord Sai.i.-ih av's
Government thc appointment ofa Commission which shall settle upon what
principles all future grants nf public
funds to members of the Royal Family
shall be made. Our despatch goes on
to state that the concession of thij Committee was vming from the Conservative
.Ministry, and is looked upon ns a greal
Radical triumph. For many years back
we have seen clearly enough thai a gradual change was taking place in public
opinion with regard to these Royal grants.
Each succeeding Cabinet finds more ililli-
culty than did its predecessor in office
to coax the House into passin;: the necessary vote of supply. At last comes news
that a Commission has been appointed
to enquire into the matter. A fact tn be
remembered in connection with the
matter is this. Lord S.u.isiukv has
under ordinary conditions a working majority of aliout eighty, hut on this question of the Commission he. or rather hill
locum tennis Mr. W. H. Smith, is in a
minority. There is small wonder that

it was nt a charity dinner or luncheon,

T. ok tho SU'tli Out of Him.
You say that you do not think tliat a
dog lias intelligence? Well, you are
wrong, and if you had been up around
the corner of Stato and Twenty-ninth
streets the other morning you would
havo acknowledged that you aro wrong.
Up in that neighborhood, on ono of the
fashionable avenues, thero lives a lady
who does her marketing over on State
6treet. Her pet is a pretty littlo white
poodle dog whicli she keeps immaculately
clean This dog is a dainty little creature, as white ns the proverbial driven
snow, and always with a delicate pink
or blue ribbon adorning his neck. Well,
the hialy went to market on tho morning
in question and the da*.g was with her.
Tho streets were very niudaly and sloppy
and the poodle did somo very artistic
work in picking his way across the
streets and avoiding puddles. As he
crossed Stato street at the heels of his solicitous mistress his finicky actions were
jealously watched by a yellow mongrel
who eyed him from llio further corner.
This cur glared al him until ho disappeared in tho corner grocery. Then he
turned tail, took to his heels and disappeared down the alley back of Dearborn
street.
In a few minutes lhe mongrel cur returned to tbo corner. He was accompanied by a half dozen dogs, who looked
fully as tough ns he did. The crowd took
up a position in a group near tho curbstone nnd apparently eyed llio grocery
across the way very closely. Pretty soon
tho dainty poodle and his fond mistress
camo out and started across tho street
tho dog skipping puddles artistically.
Just about ns he reached tho middlo uf
the street tho signal was given. Tile
group of curs bounded into the muddy
street and mado a beo lino for the poodle.
Tlio largest dog took tlio lend and caught
tho pet amidships. He did not attempt
to bite him—just knocked him nbout ten
feet through the mud, amid tho wails of
his mistress. Every cur in tho crowd
took occasion to trample on tho poodle
with muddy feet, and then thoy gathered
on the opposite curb in a crowd, looked
back at their victim and appeared to
laugh. Tho victim was covered witli
mud nnd looked ns though some ono had
washed windows witli him. And tlie
big mongrel who put up the job looked
at his co-conspirators and appeared to
say. "Well, wo did that gay duck up in
fine shape, aud I guess wo'vo taught hiin
not to bo so gallus hereafter." Dogs are
intelligent—thero is no question about
that.—Chicago Herald.

Tho story of Minister Cushlng's experience at tho tablo of Iho wealthy Chinese
mandarin, and how, pointing to n particularly appetizing looking dish, be remarked in inquiring tones, "Quack,
quack?" onlv to receive the astounding
response, "Bow-wow!" is familiar to
every one. But the first genuine enso of
a free born American electing to eat a
piece of man's humble friend is relateal
in tho following true story:
Littlo Brent is a young hopeful of Kentucky ancestry who has spent his less
than three years in ono of tho suburbs of
Cincinnati, and has not that familiarity
with  tlio country  whicli   would make
liim familiar witli  all Iho domestic nni

daughters, Louise and Irene, named

just turning 9, is a perfect reproduction

which is a great source of consolation to
his mother. The "Little Phil" of the
family shows all the courage and equanimity of tlio "Littlo Phil" of history.

Among other absurdities wo have well
meaning husbands and wives harassing
ono another to dentil for no reason in tlie
world but the desire of conforming to
current notions regarding tlio proper
conduct of married people These victims nro expected to go about perpetually together, as If they wero a pair of
carriage horses; to bo forever holding
claims over one another, exacting or
making useless sacrifices, and generally
getting in ono another's way. Tho man
who marries finals that his liberty lias
gone, and tbo woman exchanges ono set
1 of restrictions for another. She thinks
herself neglected if tho husband does not
always return to her in tlio evenings, and
tho husband and society think her un-
dutiful, frivolous, and so forth, if she
does uot stay at homo alono trying to
sigh bim back again.
Tho luckless man finds his wifo so very ]
dutiful nnd domesticated, and so very
much confined to her "proper sphere.'
that she is, perchance, more exemplary
than entertaining. Still, she may look
injured anal resigned, but sho must not
seek society and occupation on her own'
, account, adding to the common mental |
store, bringing new interest and knowledge into tlio joint existence, and becoming  thus  a contented, cultivated  and
agreeable being.    No wonder that, while
i all this is forbidden, wo havo so many !
unhappy wives and bored husbands. The |
! more admirable tho wives tho moro pro-1
foundly bored' the husbands.—Herald of

Tho Mysterious Wrestler.
Iii Mr. A. C. Ounter's new book, "That
Frenchman,"  tbo sceno opens in Paris
during the last years of the second em-
| pire, changes to St. Petersburg and then
to tho German-Russian  frontier.   The
talo is melodramatic In character, as are
• Mr. Ounter's other books, but the author
states that ho has tried to dovelop more
; comedy.   Tho advance orders ho reports
I at 40,000.    Ho has introduced as ouo of
1 his characters "tlie wrestler in the mask,''
a man who produced a great sensation in
Paris in 1807 and '08.   This person was
j supposed to bo somo great nobleman who
! was fond of wrestling.    Ho was in tlie
habit of driving to tho sceno wrapped in
a long cloak, under which ho woro his
wrestling dress.    On his face ho had a
small, black silk mask.   Ho met all comers and was never defeated.    Naturally
ho was tho source of gossip, and the halls
or circus wns crowded when it was announced Hint ho was to appear.—Current

Somo amusing incidents happen at the
civil service examinations which tho laws
now require to bo passed by candidates
for official positions and clerkships, lt
was ut an examination hero in isoston
tJiat a young woman found herself eon-
fronted with the question:
"Aro you of good moral character?"
Sho was very  much  amused at the
question and in doubt how  to treat it. j
Calling tlio examiner to her desk sho said
about the question i
"I bavo tho  reputation  of being of j
good moral character.   But yen know i
'reputation' is what peoplo think of us,
whilo 'character'  is what God and tlie
angels know of us, and that I don't want

Rich   Kiirroainaliiigs   uf   Cabinet   Minister,
and Their Wives.
I often wonder whether it is, after all,
an evil for French ministries lo be short
lived—unless for the ministers and their
wives. If they were not often overthrown tho number of persons to taste
the sweets of oflice would be so much
less. The constant Bhuffling of the cards
and new deals have also the advantage
of preventing the formation ofa governmental caste, whieh would be the most
unendurably conservative ono that ever
existed, anil, I iloubt not, the must insolent and puffed up. You have no Idea in
England of the magnificence in which
■ members of French cabinets live They
are housed in palaces, at unci' handsome,
luxurious and snug—a rare combination.
Admirably trained  foot n ere thrown
iu with the palaces Lords chamberlain
and masters of the ceremonies might
tako lessons in deportment from the reserved, respectful im! self respecting
ushers in black, witSnteel chains round
their necks, who show visitors into the
presence of the minister on the ground
Iloor or uf the ministi'ess on the lirst floor.
The funiliire of n ministry is all very
handsome and Imposing in the ground
floor rooms. All this splendor takes
away the breath uf an Englishman fresh
to Paris, who has been used to the dingi-
ness of the Irish olliee, and the plain
brick houso at Whitehall in which tin
G. O. if. resided wlien in oflice. At n
French ministry, the foot sinks in winter
in the deep pile of the carpets. In Bummer the unk parquet floors aro beautifully polished, giving a charming sense
of coolness and dustlessness. Immense
windows uf lhe folding door model
thrown wide open, if tho weather be
sunny, afford prospects of velvety turf,
old trees, shrubberies and flowerbeds in
bright bloom, Tliere is not a ministerial
residence that has not a garden spacious
enough to deserve the namo of a park,
and the atmosphere of Paris is free from
smoke blacks.
The ministress lives generally on tho
first floor of the official residence, whieh
is just as spacious* and handsome, but
more gay and elegantly coquettish, than
the ground door rooms. Tho sitting
looms of the outgoing prune ministress—
the nicest one we havo had for an age j
— wero done up for the Duchess de Per-
slgny when she was running her curious
rig under tlie empire. For ber pleasure
tho Garde Mouble, whicli is an infinite
wealth of beautiful furniture, was rid
of some of its most lovely Eighteenth century treasures. The duchess was, on her
father's side, tlie granddaughter of Ney,
tho cooper's son. On her mother's side
sho stood in the same relation to Jacques
Lafittc, of financial celebrity, who came
to Paris with worn out shoes and an
empty pocket, but who won tho heart of
a miserly banker by stooping to pick up
a pin in his courtyard, and so was able
to mako his way to fortune.
Yet the duchess was as dainty as if j
her ancestors for centuries had been of the
due's class. A crumpled rose petal on her |
couch would have made her cry out.
Sho afterward had to slave ill tlio house
of her second husband in Egypt (Le-
moyne,  an   Orleans attorney)   liko her i
great-grandmother. The sitting rooms, I
tho uso of which time. Floquet enjoys,
are dono up with ran! uld brocades and;

Wo Wiint Self Defense.
A New Yorker old enough to know
better is reported in Tho Tribune ns having uttered theso terribly treasonable
protests against como modern improvements:
What with your murderous railroads,
your new i'angled bridges, your ten story
buildings and electric currents over and
under and on all sides of you, your life
isn't worth 11 penny at auy time or anywhere. If you walk in the middle of the
street, the pavement is just as likely as
not to shoot up into the air nud blow you
out of sight. Talk about coast defenses
and harbor defenses, what wo want is
self defense.—Boston Transcript.
I.ulia's Appeasement.
' 'Coward I Lying hearted man I" hissed
Lula d'Eftington botween her set teeth
when Richard Kurdaleeong replied that
she could only bo a Bister to him.
"Lula, you are excited. Your words
do not consist," replied Richard, calmly.
"TriQerl liaso ingiato, explain yourself!" was all tho outraged girl could
utter.
"If I uiu Richard tho lyin' hearted,
surely I am no coward."
Another moment nud he held the wan
corpse of Lula d'Efflngton prone at his
feet,—Bingham ton Republican.

A few evenings since a lady who was
giving a litt lo private party was saying
all manner of severe things about the
proposed lottery. In the midst of hei
pious indignation an old gentleman, sitting on tho opposite sido of tho table,
said quietly:
"Madame, did you not ouco sell mo
two tickets in a church raffle?'
Tho woman hesitated, and finally said:
"Perhaps I did."
"Fancy calco basket, wasn't it?"
Sho colorcal up, aud, afler an embarrassed cough, said feebly: "I believe60."
"Did the drawing ever como off, and.

HOW   tO  laCSl.
Dr. Jackson's Health Journal says n
cat is a sermon to nervous peoplo. Sho
finds tho quietest spot about tho place,
where it is cozy and sunny, or In summer shady, drops clown just as her flesh
will drop, with each muscle relaxed and
goes to sleep. The doctor's cat sermon
is that we Americans do not know how
to rest or sleep, or iiow to recuperate and
mako the most of life. What wo uood is
to know how to relax every time wo feel
tired or faggod, instead of pegging- on
under stimulus of tea or alcohol.
