or the Queer   Blunder. That Are  Made
Dally—The Letters That Never Come—A j
Pnvty of Italian. I'fty a VI.lt.
It ls a fact worthy ot mention tliat among j
tlie 80,000 persons who daily visit the postoffice
not a slnglo professional thief, pickpocket or |
swindler Ls over allowed to enter the corridors. The watchmen know thein all by sight
and most of them byname, and the entrance,
oro guarded with a caro that saves many an
honest dollar from finding Its avay into dishonest palms.
Tho postofflco Is the largest aud most popular club house la this country. Here every
day business appointments aro made, engagements oro fixed, calls from out of town visitors are received, goods aro bargained for,
stocks aro bought and sold, real estate Is
traded In, letters are written, papers are
read, telegrams are sent and messages are
brought back. Every phase of life shown In
this big town Is here presented dally. It is
tho people's club house, and yet In spit© of
the jumblo of interests, tho crushing of
crowds and tho diversity of errands, there is
no more orderly spot In New York, nor is
there a more interesting place to observe
what metropolitan life really is. Let us
stand in this corridor for an hour or two and
watch tho scene.
KB WANTED A BOOM.
This is not the busiest hour of the post-
office day, but it Is sufficiently busy to keep
one's Interest from Sagging. A long line of
men and boys file slowly past the stamp window in the Broadway corridor. The leader
Is a fashionable Fifth avenue clergyman
behind him Is a messenger boy; next follows
a corpulent man who Is trying to make
amends by trampling on the messenger's
heels In his haste, for neglecting to post a
tatter given to hhn by his wife Uttle less than
a week ago, A gambler comes next, his
studied attire and flashing diamond pin contrasting strongly with the shabby dress of the
man who follows, holding his lost two cents
in his hand to mail an answer to an advertisement thnt may bring him work and bread,
and clothes to the wife and little ones at
home. A bowlegged tailor, a sloppily shod
boot maker, a politician, a nervous, dyspeptic
man who drops his glasses, fumbles over
his change, asks for stamps he doesn't want,
and keeps the Line waiting until his mistakes
are rectified, are part of the line that ls never
longer and never shorter, and continually
changing.
"What kin you do fer me today!"
A tall man, with boots too big, trousers too
short, coat too tight and hat too large, has
placed his carpetsack on the stone floor In
front of tho registered letter window.
"What do you want!" asks the clerk.
""What In thunder do you s'poso I want) A
room not too all fired high up, and I ain't particular about tho price, for I am going to
be".
"Across the street. Oo out the door just
behind you, one block down on the right
ask and you'll be accommodated.*1
The man had mistaken the postoffice for
the Astor House—by no means an uncommon
blunder.
"Is there a letter for me!"
A Uttle woman, painfully thin and pallid
as to her face, and dressed in a suit that had
been brushed, turned and made over so many
times that ita poverty and Its neatness were
Us chief features, stands beforo one of tho
general delivery windows. She is one of the
5,000 persons who ask at these two windows
every day for the 1,000 letters that are given
out
"Name!"
"Margaret Sylvester."
"Nothing."
The look ot hope that had softened a few of
the careworn wrinkles in her pale face into
comparative smoothness dies out.
"When do you get the next mall from
Pueblo, Colo.!"
"Three o'clock."
And she gives way to the man—a Uttle old
man, a bent and crooked Uttlo old man—who
comes every day, rain or sunshine, snow or
boll, to ask for the letter that wiU never
come, and he In turn is f oUowed by others.
FOR BUSINESS AND PLXASDBB.
Here comes a man who Is looking for some
one. He walks through tho crowded corridor gazing intently into every face that he
meets. At last he espies the object of bis
search In a far end of the corridor, and a
moment later they are Immersed In business.
Here an insurance agent Ues In wait for a
prospective customer who promised to meet
him in tho Park row corridor at 11 o'clock,
and they retire into a corner for a half hour',
exhibition of deUberato cruelty on the one
hand and patient heroism on the other worthy
of the victims of the Spanish Inquisition In
its palmiest days. Now come two flashily
dressed women, who walk down the corridor
casting glances to the right and to the left
Two young men leave the crowd ana address
them, and tha quartet pass out of the building into the street.
This ls a tired Uttle woman, worn ont with
a trip from her home in Nsw Jersey, and tbls
Is her husband. Hs haa run over from his
office to meet her in tbe people's club house
and take her out to lunch before she start*
uptown to an afternoon of shopping.
This man, who rushes through the main
entrance at breakneck speed and dashes up
the stairs that lead to tho second floor, ls evidently tn a hurry. Aud he has need to be.
Ho wants to catch an elevated train.
"Where's the ticket office!" be gasps breathlessly to the gray haired watchman at the
head of the stairs.
"What ticket offlcot"
"What do you suppose! I want the Third
Avenue elevated, and I'm In a hurry. Where
la It!"
The watchman smiles and directs the man
to the city hall station. It is the second time
this mistake has happened within the past
week, and as a rule it occurs once a week tha
year through.
"Can you toll me where the mayor's room
Is!" asks a corpulent man from out of town
of the watchman.
"You will find lt In the city hall, one block
farther on. Ask the flrst poUceman you
meet," and the deputy custodian turns away
to direct two anxious women which car they
should take to reach the States Island ferry.
Who are these callers! They are certainly
strangers to the postoffice attendants. Tben
are Ave In the party. The leader is tall,
bronzed and clad in the picturesque costume
ot au Italian peasant. Behind him la a woman
carrying a crowing baby In her arms. After
them came another man, a stripling and a
girl As they enter the corridor the men
reverently remove their broad brimmed hats,
the woman silences the crowing baby, and
the party mako the sign ot the cross upon
their breasts and bow their knees as they
pass the threshold of the door.
Thoy are direct from Castle Garden, and
have walked up Broadway on their way to
friends In Mulberry street They have mistaken the postoffice tor a cathedral, and have
stopped In to pay their devotions.
And thus the panorama of life ls presented
iuBe to pay tli
out ii possible.

T'UE MARITIME CONtERENCK.
Washington, July28.—TV. K. Wharton,
acting Secretary of State, said to-day,
speaking of the statement made in the
House of Commons yesterday by Sir Jas.
Ferguson, Parliamentary Secretary for
the Foreign Office, that no agreement
has yet been made with the American
Government for the programme of a
Maritime Conference to bo held in
Washington, October 10th next, that it
referred only to the routine of the Conference. England has accepted the invitation of the United States to participate
in the Conference, Mr. Wharton said,
with the proviso that the programme of
Bubjects to be discussed was satisfactory.
This programme bas been drawn up by
Commissioners of the United States and
submitted to the English Government.
No answer has yet been received. The
programme covers a great many subjects
under the general head of navigation of
vessels, for regulation of which the Conference was called. It can be modified,
and probably will be, as it is largely
suggestive in character. There is no
reason to suppose that England will not
take part in the Conference. Several
smaller nations, however, have not yet
accepted the invitation to send Commissioners, and are probably waiting until
England takes final action in the
premises.
rABNELI.  ON   1IOYAI,  URANTS.
London, July 23.—The position which
Parnell nnd his contingent of Irish Home
Rulers in tbe Commons are likely to
assume toward the proposal to increase
the allowances to members of the royal
family is a subject for much speculation
here. Parnell was interviewed to-day
and said that Sexton and himself were
in this matter influenced very largely by
the peat respect they entertained for Mr.
Gladstone, whom they were anxious to
support in all matters not affecting the
welfare ot Ireland. For his own part
Parnell says he has no strong feeling on
this question and his only concern is to
make his action on the subject ot grants
entirely harmonious with his ideas on
autonomy and local self government.
Viewing the matter in this light, and
considering the question as one of purely
English politics, he naturally will throw
his influence on the side most acceptable
to the people of England and he is willing
to accept Gladstone as the exponent of
public opinion iu England. Ho does not
imagine that a solid Irish vote in favor of
the grants will havo the effect oi alienating the sympathies of Irishmen in any
quarter ofthe globe, for although it may
be true that the Irish have not been
reared to adore the queen or the English
royal family, they are too sensible to insist that tlieir prejudices should be
allowed to stand in the way ot Ireland's
best interests. This whole business is,
however, so entirely apart from his own
main object iu life, the improvement of
the condition of Ireland, that he is entirely willing to he guided by his desire
to co-operate with Gladstone, for whom
the Irish are filled with gratitude for his
kindness to them and his sacrifices for
Ireland.
SUIT  EOR  INFRINGEMENTS.
Chicago, July 23.—Another phase ot
the litisation over the Vestibule Car
patent will be presented in the I'nited
States Courts. The Pullman Palace Car
Company this morning commenced
another suit against the Wagner Palace
Car Company and Michigan Central
Railway for infringements of the Vestibule Cn- Patents.

DROWNED    BEFORE    UIS    FAMILY'S     EYES.
Anderson, Ind., July 23.—On Friday
evening while bathing in White River,
west of here, Scott Todd and Charlie
Hosier, aged 10 and 11 yenrs, were
drowned. Ou Sunday evening nearly
five hundred people, among whom was
Mr. Bilby, were on the river banks hunting for the bodies, a rope was stretched
across stream, to this rope Bilby was
hanging in mid stream when he lost his
hold, he was carried under in a swirl of
the water and drowned in the presence
of his wife and two children.
COAL HEAVERS ON A STRIKE.
Duluth, Minn., July 23— All the eoal
heavers on the Duluth docks struck yesterday, joining those out at West
Superior in their demands for an increase
from 40 to 50 cents an hour. The Pioneer
Fuel Co., acceded to the demands of Its
men and they returned to work. The

HEAVY STORM.
Denver, Col., July 23.—A very heavy
rain fell here last night, considerably
damaging Btreets and flooding cellars.
The storm was general throughout the
State, and great damage was done to
crops and fences. Railroads also suffered
and no trains left Denver or arrived until
late this afternoon. The Santa Fe and
Rio Grande Roads are washed out between here and Pueblo, and trains on the
former line have to come in over the Denver, TexaB & Fort Worth, which did not
suffer by the storm.
A MOB OVERAWED.
Superior, Wis., July 23.—The rioters
paraded the streets all day yesterday,
and if it were not for the presence of the
militia some wild scenes would certainly
have been enacted. Yesterday morning
the mob went down to Conner's Point,
where it was said some men were al
work unloading a coal schooner. The
militia was called out and so completely
awed the rioters that no violence was attempted further than throwing some missiles and jeering the men who were at
work. The Mayor yeBterdav gave orders
to have the regular police of the city
mounted and fifty new men sworn in,
which was promptly done. The strikers
are an ignorant, brutal mob, none of
whom can speak English, and if it hail
not been for the timely action of the authorities it is hard to tell what would
have happened.
CONDEMNED TO DEATH FOR l'RACTICING
CHRISTIANITY.
Nashville, Tenn., July 23.—Information has just reached here that Mrs. Hattie (jrihson Heron is under sentence of
death inCorofl fotteaching the doctrines
of Christianity. Her Husband, the Rev.
David Heron, a well-known Presbyterian
clergyman, formerly of Jonesboro.Tenn.,
went to Corea about three yenrs ago, his
wife following soon after. Mrs. Heron
preached the Gospel as well as her husband and converted a Corean nobleman,
who began preaching Christianity. MrB.
Heron waB impriBolied by the direction
of the Emperor. Her case was examined
into and she was sentenced to death.
Mrs. Heron waB known aB the most beautiful woman in Upper East Tennesee.
PARNELL  EXAMINED.
London, July 23.—At the opening of
the Parnell Commission to-day Parnell
was called to the witness stand to answer
questions. The Irish leader denied that
any letters between himself and Mr.
Harris had been withheld when he submitted his correspondence to the Timet'
counsel. All letters had been given to
the solicitor, Soames. Attorney General
Webster intimated that he would call to
the stand every witness whose testimony
was necessary "to assist him in tracing
the books of the Land League. Parnell deposed that he had instructed his solicitor,
Mr. Lewis, to sub-puma Maloney to produce the books. The witness was unable
to say what amount of League money
Egan and other trustees of the League
had invested in his nntne in France. In
October, 18S2, Egan sent witness accounts of the Relief Fund showing the
expenditures to be £50,000, leaving a
balance of £31,800. Witness said he had
taken no steps to discuver the documents
relating to the Ladies League nor would
he, Henry Labouchere, he said, had
brought from America, from Egan, valuable clues regarding the Pigott forireries,
Presiding Justice Haunan here ask.'il
witness: "Would you instruct your
Paris bankers to produce the account of
the trust fund." Mr. Parnell said: "I
decline to give any information concerning such funil to either friend or foe."
HE  bELLS  A  WAD  OF  STOCK.
New York, July 23.—C. P. Huntington mr.de the following statement to-day
in reference to the sale of 100,0. )0 shares
of Chesapeake and Ohio a 'union slock
announced this morning:—' I have sola!
100,000 shares of Chesapeake and Ohio
common stock to Soever av. Co. for
$"1,600,000. I do not know Whether ii
wns for Drexel, Morgan A Co, or not.
Other parties are now trying to buy
100,000 shares more from me. I expect
in time to sell all my interests on the
east side uf the Mississippi, because my
interests west ot the river arc so large
that they will take up all inytiini*. I do
not, however, intend to sell my interests
at Newport News ut present, where I am
building three of the largest ship yards
in America."
President Ingalls, of the recently organized Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago
aSt St. Louis Road, is also President of
the Chesapeake ai Ohio, and it iH understood that both roads will be joined into
a single system under his management.
A  CURIOUS  CHINESE  QUESTION.
Washington, July 23.—Another peculiar question connected with the Chinese
Exclusion Law has beon presented to the
Secretary of the Treasury for settlement.
A number of officers on board thc United
States vessels wrecked at Samoa had
Chinese servants who regularly enlisted
aboard and received pay from the Government. These servants, with most ot
the officers and men of the wrecked vessels, are now at San Francisco, and there
Is no further uso for them, the Navy Department wishes to discharge them but
finds itself confronted by the Chinese Exclusion Act. Whether Chinese, as enlisted men of the United States Navy,
will be allowed to go free In this country
is the question that the Acting Secretary of the Navy has presented to the
Treasury Department for settlement. It
will probably be referred to the Attorney-
General, who also haB awaiting hiB decision  the   case of   the twelve Chinese

and awe. The latter was, usually,
acollurlcss, uncouth individual more
or less given to plug tobacco and pro
fanity. The budge of his authority
was a red handkerchief tied loosely
around his throat. Primarily, his occupation was, upon a given signal,
to liing himself in fantastic gyrations
around the iron brake wheel, and his
contortions upon the front platform
in the discharge of his duty were at
once the wonder and the admiration
of the station loungers of that period.

FROM THE SEALING «.IiOlMl*.
The Wanderer Arrive. Wilb tbe Heal
kkln. From the Fleet.
At three o'clock this afternoon the
schooner Wanderer arrive.] from Sand
Point with a large cargo of seal skins
from thc B. C. sealing fleet. Capt. Keefe
reports all well on board the sealers.
Every schooner on the
fair catch.
The American sealing schooner Webster, owned by parties residing in Seattle,
ran ashore on the northern coast and is a
total wreck. The captain and one of tbe
crew arrived in the city this afternoon on
the Wanderer. No lives were lost. The
balance of the crew were transferred to
the schooner Mollie Adams.
His hands were big and coarse and
calloused. There were invariably
grimy circles around his eyes. Wlien
ne called out the name of a station
lo the occupants of tho front car the
people in tne rear end of the train
could hear his voice, but the nearest
passenger could not tell what he said.
When he assisted a lady to alight he
helped her down from the high stepsas
though she was so much baled nay.
His regard for baskets containing eggs
or crockery amounted to absolute contempt. His business was to help run
the train.
The passenger brakeman of the present ia a symphony in blue broadcloth
and brass buttons. He is at once ornamental and useful. Tho old iron
brake wheel still looms up on the
front platform, but ho rarely finds it
necessary to touch it. Ho is the object of envy and admiration to the
small boy at the Queen Anne station
houses. It is his duty and pleasure to
cultivate a graceful carriage, and the

Capt. Keefe says the sealers were unmolested up to the time his vessed sailed
and he does not think any seizures will
be made this year. A large number of
parties intetestcd in the sealing fleet
were on Wharf street this afternoon, but
were very reticent about the catch made
by the vessels.
The Wanderer brought down 5,500 aeal
skins. The catch of the schooner Maggie Mnc amounted to 780 skins when the
Wanderer left.— Times.

Long live tho passenger brakeman
of today, the courteous, affable, accommodating young gentleman who is
worthy the newest style in the way of
a railroad uniform that the directors
and their tailor can devise.—Philadelphia Press.	
Tlio Maharajah at Home.
He is a charming old gentleman,
very kind, and deservedly popular in
Benares, but lie is keeuly" sensitive to
his failing sight The spacious room"
into which his guests are ushered has
on such occasions but little furniture—
little moro than an Indian carpet and
a few tables in the corners, besides on
one side two rows of chairs to accommodate all tho guests and retainers invited. In the front row, among the
guests, sits the maharajah and his
adopted son and grandson, all of them
magnificently dressed; just behind is
a whole retinue of attendants, and tho
proceedings are eyed with interest by
the servants, who stand round at the
sides. The otherwise empty center of
the room is occupied by a royal pigeon
dyed crimson, with a black tail, winch
struts about ou a small table and looks
very self important, and the only other
disputant of the floor is a hookah lazily
puffed at by the venerable host. If
once the luckless bird should venture
to stir off his rest, the commotion
among the attendants is that of stern
and helpless despair.
Presently three musicians squat down
before the assembly, and play several
plaintive tunes on Hindoo guitars and

RANKERS.
offii
(Jo into almost any
the Hritish service an.l you will find there
some one man who strikes you as being
a little uncomfortable and out of place,
and if you ask a question as to who he is.
lhe answer probably will be.  "Oh, he is
so-and-so, a very  good fellow, wbo i-ame
to us from another regiment."   Vou are
nol likely to he told anything more, for
iu  matters of this   kind the  loyalty of
brother officers to each other conies out
very strong: bul thc real fai'ts are thai he
is a "Ranker," who has  been  promoted
from another regiment, ami  that he, not
from his own  fault  or anyone else's, is
leading, as a reward for his gooal service!
about the most uncomfortable life thai a
nian could lead.  The ordinary man, who
has not been born a gentleman, but by
long service, or some act of special gallantry, has been given a combatant commission from the ranks, is  much  tp be
pitied,   It is the fault of that dear Hritish
Public, which is always clamoring about
things they do not understand, that so
many worthy men each year are placed in ; nlreadv
a position   which  Ihey .'an  not afford,
ami which, after a time, Ihey loathe, and
until   tho T>.   P.   bus  It thoroughly  explained   to   them  why Ihey  are  wrong
they will go on clamoring.    I.usl year
some forty combatant commissions were
given  from  thc ranks, ol  wbich more
than half probably  went to those  wild
young gentlemen who find that their
only way into tho a-oinniissinneal ranks is
by carrying a lance, a sabre, or a rifle, aiul
who :iro oi a different class altogether;
but of the remainder, the true "Rankers,"
I believe thai if the question was asked,
a couple of years after gaining their commissions, of whether they would like to
be   back agai:   in   their  old
mess,    they    would    all    sua-     "Yet

; the Canadians will follow suit.    It might

so. lhe mere fact that thc policy involves

justice, need not, 1 think, necessarily be
' an objection.

.T011.N SAMPSON,
with every   Bideration in  their new
mess, much beit-***, in feet, Hum ii Ihey
werepooi gentlemen; officers, who arc
in,i usuulh sociable, pul themselves out
of their way to be civil to them ; they are j
told, in a way that will not burl their;
Feelings, that certain subscriptions will!
not be expected of them—a thought fulness, for which the officers deserve all •
credit, is shown Ihem; but still they
are dreadfully uncomfortable. After having saluted a body of incn for some fifteen or twenty years to be suddenly
placed in a position of equality with I
them, takes some time getting over; and I
Ihe "Banker" always knows that the
N". C. O.'s and rank and file never look
on him as tbey tlo on a man who has
reached his commission through Sand-
hurst or tbo Militia, and be is continually suspecting thut some covert iniper-
tlnence exists when il is not meant.
There arc, of course, the expenses of the
officers' mess lo be met, most of which
he cannot avoid, though everything has
been clone to help him ; nn.l il happens:
too frequently thai after a time his old
companions of the Sergeants' mess see '
more of him than is consistent with dis-1
lipline, and a sharp reprimand from the
Colonel is added to his other troubles.
So many good soldiers have found their
commission to be a curse instead of a help
lo them thai it is a great pity thai some
other reward cannot be found for them.
As warrant officers Ihey would get at
least os. per ilay, which rovers their expenses easily, clothing, rations, the use
of the regimental school for their children, nnd a dozen other small advantages; while as officers they will always
be fish out of water, ami very badly-off
lisb, too. The only commission that a
real "Ranker" should accept Is a (,'uar-
ter-Master-sbip, and even that now-a-
days is no great catch; ho gets better
quarters antl has less expenses than any
other officer, anal he has a better pension
to look forward to than if ho were a Sergeant-Major nr a Quarter-Master Sergeant; but that is all.
The wild young gentlemen, who have
passed the time they should have been
doing work at college, or crammer's, in
studying society at the Pelican, the Corinthian, antl the Gardenia, are not to be
pitied at all. They go through some
salutary discipline in working their way
up through the ranks, and when after
some years tbey do gel their lieutenancy,
they are probably better soldiers than if
Ihey had never slept in a barrack-room.
Tbey slip easily enough inlo their places
in society, and as they all have money,
they do not have to face the disagreeables
that wait on the poor man in the service;
but the ordinary "Ranker" is as much to
be pitied for gaining a commission as he
is to be admired for having deseived its
lile. As soon as you feel that

I'reoiou. Water.
Ascension Island cannot ba a very de-
' sirablo place in wbich to live, if one may
: judge from tho following description of
tho difficulty of procuring fresh water.
i A. B. Ellis at  the island meets an old
friend, who shook hands, reached down
a coat from a peg and put it on, saying:
"Excuse ray  not  putting on a shirt,
. will you?"
"Of course, ot course.   Take on more
of your clothes, if you'll feel more com-
' fortable."
"N-no, it's not; that, hut the fact is that
j 1 haven't a sliirt clean enough to put on."
I   could only  murmur my supriso at
I this 6trango circumstance, and endeavor
I to look sympathetic.    Ho went on: "I
md  availably.   As mat- | .iar0 sav T'm,  think  it odd that I don't
ot the people rush ho-no j hav£) tnem waahedj.i
I thought perhaps he hail had somo
difficulty with his laundress, had not paid
her bill, but I could not say that, so I in-
quiredi "Why don't you?"
Ho unfolded a. horrible talo to the
effect that tbo water supply of tbo island
consists principally of what Is distilled
by a condenser, a small quantity being
obtained from Dampier's Drips and
Brandreth Wells. That water was always so scarce that it was served out
liko a ration of rum, only more sparing-
ly, tho allowance in prosperous times
being two gallons a day per man.
When clothes wero sent to the wash,
j tho water for washing them had to bo :
! sent with tbem. That tho condenser hnd
! now boon out of order for somo nine or
I ten days, and everybody on the island
I had been put on Bhort allowance, so that
! thoy had not enough for drinking, much
less for washing cither themselves or
their clothes.—Youth's Companion.

Pronounce it according to iu derivation,

when cheap fares are more general, and

opening to tho north so many escapes from
tho sharp handling of winter that all olas-e;
will soon avail themselves of it.
"Undoubtedly tho most sonslblo method of

Ono of our famous actors has a small hut,

Relaxation and recroation are two very
different things. Many peoplo supposo be- ]
causo thoy rolax once tn twonty-four hours |
thoy are doing all nature requires of thoin.
They say they can leave business at tlio
storo. Yes, aud then enter into vacuity, a I
state of nonontty for tho rest of tho day.
Suoh mon grow pinched, aud pinch others;
thoy have a ring to them that is liko an empty barrol; thoy look around with a sort oi
Interrogation they havo not life enough to
utter, but if it did get expression would be:
"What Is life but business? Rocrention
must conjoin with relaxation. Such mon if
thoy loso their proporty commit suicide, or
■ have softening of tlio brain. Wifo and children and the round world full of sun and
trees counts for nothing with them. They
aro lonoly with nature. The trees have no
personality for tliotu, and there is no companionship but in pilos ot cotton goods,
bales of coats and pantaloons, or paints and
varnishes. Did you over study tho run of
business men in and out of their stores? In-
sido they lit tn tbeir wortr; the momont they
step outside thoyseem as out of place as a
painted cavalier that should step out of his
panel.
We may bo sure of this, however, thai
the present drift of American life to yoarly
spurts of recuperation is all wrong, and
must be given up for a more sensible plan.
Where tbe drain nnd oxhaustion is daily the
balance must be dally secured. Not one out
of ten of our public men or business mon
but makes a daily draft on his strength a
little beyond his physical Income. This be
compensates with stimulants or endures the
tax until tho nnnual vacation onco more
enables him to replaco in part what he has
ombezzled from his constitution and moral
energy. But this Is a dishonest tnakoskift,
and we are suro to degenorate uuder iti
influence.
Contact with nature iu the fullest sense of
the word has a power in it that is subtle,
probable too subtle for superficial peoplo to
understand. Old Dr. Johnson disliked trees,
and liked better to roll up and down Cheap,
sido in tho crowd. This Is obvious with
other persons of the samo sort; cannibalistic
oreatures thoy are absorbing, devouring
other people. Doctors forbid us to allow
children or nervous people to sleep with
older or moro rugged peoplo. It destroy*
thorn. The samo infi'ionce iu less degree
goes on in tlio daytime under loan alow contact A few gross ones grow stout on the
rest. Constant human intercourse ia
very destructive to most. The re-
cuperattvo forces - aro hi nature.
Companionship with trees is always invigorating and vitalizing. Tho value of Bow.

medicinal and physical. It is not moroly
mental pleasure that tho paling woman
gathers from tho rosebush, but medicament.
The same is true ot .lowers di-tributei in
hospitals. High lifo can only be lived when
the whole being is sternly protectoJ against
corrosive influences. Moral lifo is not something separate from the rest of our life, but
a part of the physical.
Tbe happiest feature of the l-ocroative
tendency is that it bas taken hold of the
poorer classes. There is no povorty left in
the civilized world as bad as that ot tbe
middle ages. Tho railroad will not allow it
Famines can not get such a grip on any section of tho world. We can get away from
choleras and pestilences. History will
never again show such rocords of wholesale
deaths as tho black scourge brought on Europe This is not only owing to sanitation
and more knowledge; It is owing to speedy
transit.
Workmen in reality rusticate nowadays
more than the capitalists. They eat more,
eat better food, better cooked, sleep more,
and wear out more slowly. Besidos, they
get a good deal moro out of a week's lay-off.
The rich man is never ablo to get f roe from

[Chicago [Herald.]
According to an old resident of New Orleans, the cold-weather drink known as
Tom and .lorry was first compounded in
that city sixty years ago. Pierce Egan's
play was produced at the Old Lamp Stroot
theatre, Feb. S3, 1U20. He adds: "The name
of Tom and Jerry was given to a kind of
eggnog drink, whloh was concocted by a
dealer on St, Charles street, near the location of Sam's oyster saloon, whloh was
established many years after. The drink
became popular, and for many years survived the recollection ot this play to which
It owed iu origin."
"Did you ever hear of a deaf and dumb
telegraph operator! Don't believe it? Why,
man, I taught a deaf and dumb boy his first

facts and a Uttlo story with It, off hand like,

Tomatoes in  England.
Americans, accustomed to seo tomatoes
iu somo sliapo on tlio table nearly overy
alay of tbo year, will scarcely appreciato
how nearly that familiar vegetable comes
to  being  a  rare delicacy in England.
Ten years ago it wasanexooption to find
this delightful l'ruit on tho tables of any
but tho wealthy; but today they aro to
bo found in most houses during the season, their extensivo cultivation having j
brought down tho prico so as to make |
them como within tho reach of all.   The [
tomato, or love applo; as it was formerly j
called,   originally   camo   from   South |
America, but it was not until the climate
of tho United States was found to bo
eminently adapted to their growth that
they camo into general uso, the taste for
tho samo spreading to Europe.
It is, in addition to its valuable hy- j
gienio qualities, ono of tho most profit-
able fruits to cultivate, aud we know of
one private geutlcman who sends no less
than one ton to market dally In the early
season, tho prico paid for tho same aver-

the peoplo becamo accustomed to the

excited mob bad possession of the main street
and every other man was dead broke.
About noon a man arrived from the north
in a buggy. He said he was a drover and
looking for hogs. He bought half a dozen before he ate dinner, and It was astonishing
how closely he guessed at their live weight.
Ho was within two pounds on four of them
and only half a pound more on tbe others.
These had beeu au attraction for a crowd of
idlers, and the general verdict was that the
drover was as sharp as a barber's razor. Boon
after dinner a farmer looking boy drovo a
hog Into town and Btaked him out in front of
the tavern. As he wanted to sell and tbe
drover wanted to buy, ihey soon came together.
"Might take hhn on a pinch, but he's only
a nubbins," said the drover as he sized the
porker up.
"Nubbins! Why, that pig goes over SOO
pounds!" exclaimed the owner.
"Can't stuff me, boy. I've been In tbe
business twenty years."
"No one wants to stuff. That 'ere hog goes
to 210."
"He does, eht Wish your father had come
in. I'd like to made a bet with hhn. Boy,
you ought to have better judgment. That
hog won't pull down 180."
"Guess you aro off, too," remarked a
stranger wbo had quietly driven up hi a
buggy. "I'vo raised hogs all my life, and
that boy hain't five pounds out of his guess."
"•Ain't ho! Raised hogs, havo youl Ever
raise any money!"
"A little."
"Perhaps you'd like to bet on that hog?"

other night, and Col. Grannlss told one
of his. Ho mado tho trip through tho
southern country horo Just after tho road
had been opened. The festive cowboy
had just begun to enjoy tho sport of
running tho train in tho rough region,
and at one of tho stations a formidable
specimen of that tough human buarded
tho cars. The conductor camo ulong
punching llio tickets, and this cowboy
did uot pay auy attention to bim. At
last tho conductor laid his hand on tho
cowboy's shoulder and said, "Ticket
please." The cowboy turned in true
cowboy style, pulled out his revolver
and pointed it at the oonductor.
"Hero's my ticket."
Tho conductor walked on and punched
everybody else's coupon. Then he disappeared. The littlo incident had been
forgotten by almost everybody on the
car. Tho cowboy was in a quiescent
stato and the car wus quite still when
tho conductor camo in. Ho walked leisurely up tho aislo and suddenly stopped
beforo tho cowboy, placed a great big
knife dangerously contiguous to his vital
part and said, quietly:
"Lemmo see that ticket again."
The cowboy paid his faro.—San Francisco Chronicle.
"Have you got $20 as says he goes 200!"
"I have—fifty—a hundredl"
"Then let's chalk.   Anybody can blow."
lt was a chance to make a dollar, and the
citizens improved it, Tho man in the buggy
was an accommodating chap, and somehow
or other the farmer boy managed to fish up
about a hundred dollars from the hind pocket
of bis overalls. Tho citizens stuck by tho
drover, having abundant proofs of his Judgment, and when every man In that town who
had a loose dollar or could borrow one had
mado his bet the hog was driven to the scales
and weighed.
"Gentlemen," said tho drover Just before
tho weighing, "I was never deceived in my
lifo.   This hog won't go to 100 pounds."
"I'll take oven bets that he goes over 200,'"
replied tho man in the buggy.
This bluff raked out the last nickel iu the
crowd, and the hog wns driven upon the
scales. The record was 211 pounds. He was
weighed and reweighetl, but tho figures
stood.
"Well, it's my first error In a hog," said the
drover, and all bets wero at once handed over.
The farmer boy clipped out, tbe two men
drove off In the buggy, and half an hour had
elapsed before a church deacon, who had laid
bis ten with the drover and lost, suddenly
declared that It was a put up Job to skin the
town.
•'Dura my buttons if lt haln'tl" yelled 200
men In chorus, but lt was too late. Tho town
had been skinned, and the trio bad escaped.
All the mob could do was to turn loose and
wreck an old vinegar factory and pass a resolution to the effect tbat liberty was a sham

tho door bell produced no response. The
only sound indoors was that of the dog's
tail gently thumping against the rug,
but after a time that ceased. Tbe dog
bad recognized his friends and refused
to bark. When ull efforts to enter
seomed fruitless, tho door,was opened by
a sleepy servant accompanied by a very
wide awako dog. It seemed that this
friend of tho family had made his way
to tho servant's room and had gently
awakened her to a realization of the sit
uation. As ho had never been permitted
to enter tho room beforo it is evident
that his sense of the needs of the occasion had shown him that he should not
wait for a ceremonious invitation.—Boston Journal
The Bishop and the Boy.
"What aro you doing here, my ladr"
"Tending swine, sir." "How much do yon
get!" "One florin a week, sir." "I also am
a shepherd," continued the bishop, "but I
have a much better salary." "That may bo,
but then I suppose you have more hogs under
your caro." Tbe shepherd was about retiring when the boy continued: "Say, can God
 Yes, my boy."    "Can he
mako a 2-year-old colt In two minutes!"
"Why," said the astonished bishop, "he
would not wish to do tbat, my boy." "But
If he did want to, could ho!" Insisted the boy.
"Yes, certainly, if he wished to." "What!
tn two minutes!" "Yes, In two minutes."
"Well, then, he wouldn't be 3 years old,

What Oar Weather Costa V*.
The United States pays $000,000 a year
ter its weather service, Great Britain
(80,000, Germany $50,000, Bussia $85,-
000, Austria $10,000, Switzerland $6,000,
France $00,000. And, though no European nation attempts to do as much as
we do, or takes general observations
moro than once a day, the percentage of
verification of predictions is rising there,
which is hardly the caso in this country.
Our weather service, with its great cost
and thorough organization, ought to be
the best in the world.—Detroit Free

Bon She Dlstlugul.hed Her Plea.
An old lady who lived In a New England
town baked a mince and apple pie every
Saturday. But after they were baked they
were as bad as the "Two Dromios"—nobody
knew which was which. Sbe was not lacking, however, hi the fertile Ingenuity of her

quick pulsntions of tho little brass armature
beneath his sensitive touch.
"It was well along into tho Ice harvest of;
winter that one day Col. Tracy, agent in the
town for one of the larger ice companies, tho
chief industry of the town, entered the office
and after a cheery greeting, announced the
fact that $1,000 in greenbacks was expected
on the evening express, to bo used by him in
paying the hands on the morrow. 'And,
boys,' ho added, 'as 1 suppose you don't care
to keep that amount over night, perhapf
you'd better deliver it to me at tho house;
then I'll lock It hi my safe and be ready with
the pay roll in the morning, for the men will
be anxious for their scrip.' We wero willing
to please tho colonel, and readily consented
to do as he wished. During that afternoon a
furious storm of snow sot in. Trains were
delayed, and, in consequence, It was after 9
In the evening when tho express parcels, anc*
among tbem the precious bundle of cash, arrived at tho oflice. Ours was a small office
supporting no delivery team, and as one
of us must act as messenger, my brothei
proposed doing so whilo I settled up tht
day's business. Had there beeu a thought ol
danger in the orrand to disturb us I novel
should have consented to his going alone
being none, I gavo a gesture of thanks as hi
buttoned tightly his coat about him, seized
tho parcel and stepped out into the storm.
Alone In the oflice, tho day's busines was soon
put to order and tho few express parcels
checked from tho way bill. Then, seated in
my brother's chair, 1 fell into a reverie upou
tho courage of tho poor boy who sat there,
day after day, deaf to all savo the busy in
struments—until arousetl by an unusual stir
at the office door. They were bringing him
In, my poor boy; his clajthes in disorder and
stained by the storm and, yes, blood. What
could have happened! Ilis poor right hand,
which could have told in place of speech,
hung useless at his sitle, tho arm disabled by
a blow.
"What is It, man!" No nnswer, savo that
they had found him struggling through the
storm, and, recognizing him, had brought
him here. Whllo plying the questions 1 had
clasped the wounded hoy In my arms and
supported hhu to his accustomed scat beside
tho instrument. 'Wo have need of a doctor
here greatly,' raising tlio injured arm. One
of the men Immediately started in search of a
physician.
" 'What Is It, dear boy!' I askod aloud.
For answer ho grasped quickly my right
hand with his uninjured left, and with his
fingers spelled out tho words iu the familiar
Morse alphabet, which 1 read from tho slm-
plo strokes of his fingers, 'llol-bedl Robbed!
Two Mufllei figures. Struck mo down.
Clung to money pnekugo to tho last—till—till
they broke my arm. Oh, cruel, cruel—two
poor boys, to rob them of so much.'
"A severe scalp wound, the result of a blow
from some blunt Instrument, and arm not
broken, but badly hurt Such was the ver
diet of the physician after an examination.
"The long winter season at last grew Into
spring, tben Hummer, ond the sun danced
again on tho waves of the Kennebec, My
brother was back onco more In his old time
seat, fully recovered from his Injuries nnd
busily working the wire as before. Yet no
trace of tbe stolen money nor tho robbers.
"It was noon, and our telegraph messenger's dinner hour, wheu one eventful day
there came a messago of special Importance,
requiring immediate delivery. Our established reputation for promptness must not
suffer this to wait the messenger's return, so
thrusting tho telegram into tho pocket of my
coat, I rushed off on delivery duty. I have
said that my brother's appearanco so closely
resembled my own as to cause uncertainty
even among our friends in distinguishing one
from another.
"Now, as my course lay down toward the
river among the ice houses, I noticed two
Idlers of vagabond appearance sitting cooling
their heels upon one of tho long shutes whicli
project out into the river, used in hauling the
Ice from Its bod up the great incline plane to
tho entrance of the houso. As I camo oppo
site and almost within arm's length of tho
two worthies, one turning to the othor exclaimed: 'Hero come, tho alitmmy, Bill, He's
got our mark on hhn 1' In an instant lt flashod
upon me, now was the timo for action. To
denounce them later as the robbers would be
hazardous.
" 'At last I've got you,' and wilb the words,
followed by a cry for help, turned, and
sprang directly at tho throat of tho first
speaker. There was an answering cry of
surprise from tho villain ere my fingers encircled his throat, antl the next moment wo
were rolling over and over, each struggling
for tho mastery. Tho other, evidently a
weaker spirit, took to his heels and abandoned his comrado. Soon my mad cries
brought help aud the robber was secured.
Then, after directing some to follow tho fugitive, I. denounced them both os tho express
robbers. That night both—the runaway captured—were safe within the walls of tho village lockup.
T'At the trial which followed, tho weaker
spirit quailed, and, to secure the clemency of
the court, mado a full confession, likowise
disclosing the biding place of tho stolen
money, which, loss somo $"."00, was unearthed
and secured to the oxpress company. The reward of $300 for the arrest and conviction of
the robbers enabled us to make good tbe
wholo amount."—Lewiston (Me.) Journal

From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Est)., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of con'
gratulating you upon the wide-spread rcpu
tation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all ovci
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall he
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
nre happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Cullis Browne's Chlorodyne In Diarrhte,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, thc Vomiling of Pregnancy, and
as general Sedative, that have occurred
untl-1 our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhrea, 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 thc best, and
also from a sense ol duty we owe to the prai*
fession and thc public, as we'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 are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members ul
thc Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnanccllor Sir W,

••imr Cricket   Visitors."
In the Free Press oi yesterday under
the liea.ling '"our cricket visitors," the
Gditor ol that journal in referring tai a
dinner given to tbe Vancouver cricketers
at the Windsor House has the following
remarkable sentence.   "Thebanquet waa
kept up till after midnight, hut as (he
parties having Hie management, for an
obvious reason, failed to extend the usual
courtesy so as to enable the Fret Press fo
semi a representative to the banquet, we
have Ac."   Surely the Free Press editor
need scarcely have tolal dwellers in  Nanaimo that lie was not invited to a private tlinner given by gentlemen in gentlemen.   The reason i< Indeed, as lit*  so
naively remarks, obvious, bill then why,
.■li! why. Mr. Editor, try  to make this
reason   more obvious (il such n  thing
were  possible)   than   il    otherwise is
In   order    to    soothe    this   person's
wounded feelings we will just add that
what he calls the  "banquet"  was given
by only a few members of thc Nanaimo
Cricket Club, wbo chose this method of
extending  hospitality lo n  team of as
first-rate fellows as ever set   foot   In   Nanaimo.   Besides this it was very generally felt Unit for the credit ofthe city Ihey
[the cricketers] should endeavor its far as
as  In   them lay I" induce these  Vancouver gentlemen to think  that lhc insulting ami foolish article which appeared
in the Free Press about their "backing
.lown" because they couldn't  make arrangements to get here last Friday,  was
not endorsed by any single person, man,

was evolved  entirely   from   Free /'

Quite 11 thrill of excitement was caused
near the boat bouses by the report that
Uircc Indians had arrived In a sloop containing several barrels nf whiskey. On
proceeding to the spot it was learned that
three Indians, while on their way to New
Westminster lo take part in the salmon
fishing, luul, while nil'Coal Island, sighted a sloop half submerged and on its side.
They promptly towed her ashore, and
after baling the water out commenced to
investigate, with the result that Ihey
found the slnnp to contain 1". kegs of
whiskey and 1 case of bitters. There
were 7 "ten-gallon and ii five-gallon kegs.
When the craft was discovered all sails
were set, m if she hail been capsized in a
squall. The Indians, after righting the
sloop, sailed her into Nanaimo Harbor,
where she was taken in charge, with her
cargo, by Constable Stewart. Besides
the whiskey and case of bitters there
were several cooking utensils, a stove
and a Winchester rifle, The kegs were
jammed in very tightly, which possibly
accounts for tbeir remaining in the l"..*it
after she was capsized.
The sloop is a very neat  i lei and, as
she is heavily rigged, ,i- prfihnbly n fast

A hung wa; started in one of the kegs
1 ;oi nighl aud those wbo were allowed to
smell lhc contents pronounced ii "Injun
oison" of the woral kind. The kegs and
case wero addressed "J. A. Hobinson,
Locus Island." It is very probable lhat
the ultimate destination of the liquor wa.
lo Indian camps on the northern coast.
Earlier in the day it was reported lhat
a sloop belonging to three young American prospectors was lust near Cowiihiin
Gap early yesterday morning. The
three young men arc snid tn have gone
ashore near Chemainus iti a small boat,
leaving ihe sloop ai anchor, and that
when thoy returned the sloop bad disappeared. When the Blnop containing the
whiskey was found the anchor was
.-towed aboard, nml so it Ib probably not
lhc same boat.

the Nanaimo eleven, having won the

bowling was entrusted to Hodgson and

Morgan went in tirst, the former being
speedily caught by Hodgson from a good
ball by Stokes. He was succeeded by

Keefe arrived in Victoria at 3 o'clock
Monday afternoon from the North Pacific
ocean. She had on board almost tho entire catch of lhe British schooners now
in northern watew, totalling about 5.820
skins.
The Wanderer brought down us passengers the captain, mate and (wo of tbe
crew ot tbe American schooner Webster,
owned in Seattle, which, during one of
the rough nights of last month, struck a
reef and went to the bottom. Fortunately
no lives were lost. Several nf the crew

it is painful to comtemplate the figures
which probably would have been obtained. Dixon's sixteen runs were obtained
by plucky and sound play, and he received a deservedly hearty ovation on his
retirement.
No time was lost by Mr. (Ireen who

Hodgson, the innings realising with seven

bowler who puzzled the batsmen sorely

is coiled. About seven or eight pounds
of powder are used in the rocket. There
were three tests made, and in each case
a line was carried between nine hundred

invention was so pronounced that the

thc single toast at lunc'ionn, namely,"Our j
Guests." Mr. (ireen—captain of the
Vancouver eleven—replied In his quiet
and humorous manner. The match
caused much enthusiasm among the
spectators of both sexes, nud as each sue-
cessivc run was made when tbe two i
scores began to approximate, the soft
collision of applauding gloves was seen
on all sides whilst loud and excited
shouts of encouragement burst from the!
male onlookers. Upon the con-1
elusion of the match the usual
compliments ot each team cheering its
opponent was duly gone through when
the visitors were driven to the Windsor
House where they dined. It was then ;
found that owing to a misunderstanding
the Rustler, which was supposed to be
chartered by the Nanaimo members who j
had previously entertained tlieir guests
at dinner, was instead of getting upsteam
prior to leaving for Vancouver, getting it
up to go to Texada. No money inducement could niter her captain's" decision.
Capt. Bendrodt of the Isabel was then
tried, with a like result. Finally a special train was procured and the visiting
eleven got safely aboard bound for Vancouver via Victoria about I) o'clock p. m.
Each of the visitors expressed warm
admiration for thc picturesque situation
of our city and stated that they hoped to
