WII.I. ABOLISH   IllK  VJOB-BOYAI.TY 01'
IRKI.Allli.
I.mitlnn, May 11.—It is now regarded
as absolutely certain that the Government will make no proposals with reference to  the olliee of  Viceroy of Ireland
until the ministry moves a Local Government Kill for Ireland in the House nf
Commons next year. Then the oflice
will probably I* abolished and the Government of the country placed in the
hands ol' the Chief Secretary fnr Ireland,
who will be promoted to the dignity of
Secretary of Slate. Meanwhile efforts
are to be continued to induce a member
of tho royal family to accept tbe position
of Lord Lieutenant of Ireland for a year,
ami there is every likelihood of thoir
being successful, it is saitl tbe Prince of
Wales has intimated he would not be
averse to residing in Dublin half the time,
and this hint has been widely circulated
as evidence that His Royal Highness
will lie the next Viceroy of Ireland. All
of the Irish leaders, who have as yet publicly passed tlieir opiuion on the subject,
avow their belief that the Prince of \\ ales
would exercise his power with more fairness and generosity toward the Irish
peasantry than any man who has yet
served or likely lie asked by the Tories to
serve in this capacity, and bis acceptance
of the office even for tbe brief period
mentioned would give general satisfaction.
AFRAID OP TIIK STRIKERS,
Berlin, Mav 14.—Krupp, Stumin and
other large iron workers fearing thut

PRESS  OI'INIONS.
Paris, May 14.—The Hied/ states that
the Court of Senators empowered to try
Con. Boulanger, cannot frame a Specified
charge against tbe General ami it is proposed to outer a nolle prosequi in his
case.   The Journal believes that the case
against General Boulanger will fail and
the prosecution of Henry Rochefort will
lie abandoned.
TUB ATTEMPT  TO   K1I.I, TIIK  CiiAR.
London, May 14.—A despatch from
Vienna gives another version of the attempt to tako Ibe life of the Czar at
Gatohino last Friday, news of which was
telegraphed from Paris yestertlay. The
story in circulation in Vienna ls that the
Czar was walking in the garden of the
palace when he was attacked hy an olli-
cer, who tired a revolver at bim, slightly
wounding him in the forearm. The
guards near at band rushed forward to
seize the assassin, but before thoy could
catch him bo placed the pistol to Ids
temple ami shot himself.
LUTHERAN liRIKVAKCKR.
London, May 14.—The Czar has ordered M. De (Hers, a brother of the Russian
Minister of Foreign Affairs, to proceed to
Livonia anil report to him personally the
attitude of the Lutherans in that district,
and the causes of their discontent wilh

OUR OITY FATHERS.
tConti Imcii  Irom   yesterday.)
Aid. Mahrer, on behalf of the Committee saitl they hail appointed H.Chanibers
as caretaker of the cemetery with the
understanding that be solicited aid from
those interested in the graveyard. He
recommended thr.t a man lie given him
liy the Council to help put the paths in
order.
JAld. Peck wished to know if H. Chambers were expected tn go cadging $5
from bereaved families. I propose we
pay a niaii to do the work.
Aid. Nightingale thought it unreasonable tbat the Corporation should pay a
tniin tn do the work while Hugh Chambers wont around Kolicitingsubscriptions.
The motion to place H. Chambers as
caretaker nf the cemetery was carried.
Aid. Baker next asked if the eity wore
supposed to have gas Whether there was
a moon or not. Siinietimes it was pitch
dark and no gus lit. They scut in their
bill very regularly al ihe end of tho
mouth. 1 have spoken tn Lolghton and
only received a grin. The matter was
left to the lighting company.
Aid. Mahrer wished In <fr.iv. attention
lo the fact thai Dr. Prayer had not reported CR8CB of contagious disease. Several families had eases nf diphtheria
among them and yet they associated wilh
olher persons.
Aid. Nightingale—They should be reported within 12 hours ei' lirst discovery.
There is a lino of not loss than $26, nor
moro than $100 incase of failure to do so.
The Mayor saitl tbe stench on Commercial street on the lee side was
horrible.
Aid. Mahrer suggested flushing under
the buildings.
Tho Mayor—You might wash some
away. There are some defects in the
by-law.
Aid. Baker saitl ho was one of tbe Sanitary Committee and had been around
several times. Where is the water to come
from to carry out Aid. Mahror's scheme.
Aid. Mahrer wished to call Dr. Pneger's
attention to the clause concerning contagious diseases.
The Mayor then saitl the Assessment
Roll was due, but after it was produced,
owing to tho lateness of the hour the
meeting adjourned.

LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
Koirnit Coi itiKit:—1 am glad to Bee
you taking notice of the "Salvation
Army," ami its manner of conducting its
very peculiar drill* in this city, and I am
happy to think thai your ideas nl' its ridiculous impersonation of religion, coincide
exactly with my own.
I have not narrow views regarding the
various works in which .Ministers of different ladiefs, whether Episcopalian.
Presbyterian, Methodist, or Roman
Catholic, endeavor to carry out their j
different  ideas  to get   their  hearers to
Heaven, so long as they keep their pulpits, ami mete nut the bread uf  life tn j
tlieir Hocks iu a decent manner, whether j
we  believe  in   their words or not.    We. ]
usu rule, art- under the  impression that
they are sincere, antl, if  no other good
I is done, the iniprossivcness n( their sol- :
j vices, conveys to sav   ibe least   of  it,  a 1
j good moral tone, especially to  tin- rising
generation,   Alas, now different is the
■ state of affairs  when we consider the
! actions of this self-styled Salvation Army? J
With its trumpets blowing and its
drums heating, and young lads hooting

i cession of some savage tribe of the "Dark
\ Continent," striking its tom-toms audi
making all kinds of liideous noises on its
way tn some cannibalistic least. And
Sir. what must the mothers ami
fathers ot' the little sick ones,
struck down by some fatal disease, and
waiting and watching only for the entl to
eoine, so tbat tbev may be able to closi
the eyes of tlieir dear ones, think of
the conduct of such fanatics who. under
tho cloak of religion, come with their
fiendish yells to lake away, probably,
the last chance of life whicli may be left,
and to cause themselves from such an
excessive strain upon thoir nerves to be
left in such an utter stato of prostration
as to be quite incapable of engaging in
the last rites which it is their duty to do
towards tlieir loved ones?
I have even  heard of the
this badly named "Salvation'
the occasion of a late alarm of
city, beating its drums and yelling more
furiously than over before, so much so,
Indeed, as to drown  the sound of the
alarm  bell,  antl when   reproached by
citizens lor so doing,  instead of helping
to extinguish the fire,  after a moment,
led on by the  gallant   lady (?) captain,
yelled out, Hallelujah I   Praise the Lord!
I venture to make these few remarks
because I feel convinced that this conduct will ultimately lead to a breach of
the peace, antl the sooner the city fathers
tako a hand in the game the better it will
be for their constituents.

Editor Coirier:—Well, in these dull
times, it is a relief to read your very
readable editorials in the Courier this
morning. Easy reading means bard
preparations. A man must have himself
read extensively, travelled wide, digested
thoroughly what be has both seen, beard
ami perused, and have a clear head and
well balanced mind to enable him to
write easily, clearly and to the point. Ho
must have drawn deeply Irom "those
wells of English uiidclilod" that have
made such men as Gladstone and Bright
such facile unrivalled orators and writers
as all the world acknowledges them to
lie in their respective lines of thought
and action. Why do the Times and other
greal publishing houses of London pay
such large sums to men who furnish
them periodically with only a limited
amount of matter for their several productions—be it daily, weekly, or quarterly issue? Is it not because such
writers are limited in number, and can
demand tlieir own terms? What thoy
write is marked with lucidity, grace and
charming crispness, and of such reading
that one almost fails to detect thc art
that conceals art.
Sneaking of the great popular tribune
of the people, John Bright, who to uso
bis own term, has'no w departed "to join
the majority of kindred souls; what
simple, nervous ami most admirable
Saxon was at his command and fell like
a silver shower from his mobile lips.
He was one who knew how to speak in a
language understanded of the people.
What an admirable foil to 1hb unvarnished mother tongue one could cite
from the editorial column of your evening contemporary of only yesterday's
(late. The subject chosen fiir comment
was ol the greatest importance, ami the
Editor was quite within his province in
drawing the attention of this community
to its importance—the projected Aus-
tialian Steamship line. But what nonsense lie unwittingly made of the theme
in hand. If he bad been content to
write what wc may call Brigliloiiian, instead of Johnstonion English-ho would
never have rendered himself amenable to
correction by a third rate pupil of our
publlo school. Here is Ibe quotation:—
"A regular monthly service between
Canada ami Australia, the two most important colonies ol the Hritish Empire,
will be of iiilinotisimal value, commercially," According to thi* wonderful
wind cninago of bis, Ibe value would be
at Ibo vanishing point. Why then did
he not simply use the term—greatest—
which was whal be wished to convey;
bnl inlinotisiiuiil, or as it might tu he
written, "Infinitesimal," soiiiuIb like a
distant echo from the "Old Man of the
Mountain," and is of a kind which is
verily ol infinitesimal importance,
  Jot.
Editor Ootmaa i From tbe report of
the proceedings of the Council, published
iti (he Free Press, I see that Alderman
Mahrer has been grumbling because 1
hnvo not sent a report to the Council us
to the prevalence of diphtheria. If
Alderman Mahrer has read the newspapers lately, he should know tbat making nny such report would be a work of
supererogation on my part, inasmuch as
diphtheria bus been prevalent and exceedingly fatal throughout the world, and I
regret to say that it has been forcibly
brought home to many of us that the
disease has oxistotl for several months in
this eity.
If Alderman Mahrer does not know,
he ought to know that my appointment
is honorary, that I havo hail frequent
consultations with the Mayor and
Sanitary Committee, that precautions
havo lieen taken, and that there is no
by-law which gives me the power to
quarantine a building, and that oven had
I authority to tio so, it would he necessary for men to be stationed outside tho
quarantined house night und tiny lo enforce the regulation.

The Royce A Ijuising Musical Comedy
Company gave a performance last evening iu the Institute, the hall of which
was running over with surplus audience.
It would be an invidious task to particularize individuals where aii were so good.
As for Mr. Ray Royce, ho, in our opinion,
stands as far above tbo ordinary ran of
actors who drift Nanaimo-wards, as does
the Colossus of Rhodes above the stature
of ordinarv mon. He is simply inimitable in bit impersonations—almost, if
not quite, thc equal of tbe once famed
Frederick Maccabe, and in some respects
might be favorably compared with the
great J. L. Toole himself. If any of our
rentiers think such praise extravagant,
let them go ami judge for themselves
whenever they may get the chance. We
me usually sparing of our adjectives, hut
the extreme pleasure afforded to us by
the entertainment given by the Rovce,
Lansing Co., individually and collectively, was such that we fool to Btiot the
praise would be both niggardly and unjust. Should they favor us again with a
second performance, we can promise
them such a "bouse" as Nanaimo bus

OUR   VANCOUVEU  MAIL.
The cry is gettim,; rapidly loader and
more frequent for a direct daily mail
from Vancouver; the want of which is
severely felt in Namiimo. Thero is
no safer indication of the prosperity and
good government of a country, than its
postal and telegraph facilities, Macuuley
has told us thut he draws the line between civilisation ami barbarism at the
tooth-brush. Might his lordship not
have drawn it with' eiiuul justice, at a
point which separates a direct doily from
an indirect tri-weekly, iiitiil service—
wherever (as in this ease) it is possible
to adopt the former. (inverninents which
only give reluctantly what thev are at
last obliged to give nolens volent, lose quite
half the gratitude they would otherwise
obtain. That a direct dally mail service
between this, the third town of importance in the province, ami Vancouver
must come, and that shortly, goes without
saying. What we would urge upon the
present administration is, that they
should do voluntarily and gracefully,
what ere long they must do perforce. It
is careless injustice of this sort, that so
frequently causes—owing to smouldering
discontent—the ''liny rift within the
lute" to widen, until the rift becomes a
gap, aud the lute itself fulls to pieces.
DOMESTIC  SERVANTS'
An endless  Bubject for  conversation
among the mistresses of households has
long lieen that of the shortcomings of
tlieir servants.   Here in British Columbia, well trained,  thoroughly  efficient
girls willing to act as domestic servants,
are so rarely to be met with that those
who would only bo too glad to have such
help are obliged to fall buck upon the
much-maligned Chinaman or else do ull
their own work-   We know well tbat the
servant frequently   has  just   as  much
cause for complaint as the mistress.  Unnecessary ringing of bells requiring ut-
tandance, possibly up it somewhat   long
flight of stairs—arbitrary orders given
in harsh   and  over-hearing tones—the |
permitting the children of tbo house to
give orders in a manner ao peremptory
that they cannot fail to be a source of annoyance   to tbe girl who is not infrequently! qhite   as well educated us ber
mistress—sometimes   n truer  lady— all
these, and many other causes too numerous to catalogue, have long been silently
at work with thertnevitiible result tbnt
"domestic service   is  by  nn   mouns   so
popular with   tlie  girls  who must per
force endeavor to earn their own living,
aa it  should   be.    The  training   such
an   occupation    affords   tbem,    would
render them especially fit to take charge
ofa home of their own when  the time
comes for so doing, besides she,   as well
as he, who has first learnt bow to  obey,
will in turn  best know bow lo govern.
We tail to see why the employer should
feel indignant because tho servant asks
minutely as to privileges.    After all it is
but a contract for service, and should  be
.entirely divested of its sentimental side
in order to be established on  a  satisfactory footing.    Wo think the typo of Ibe
old-fashioned   confidential   servant,  as
described  by   Miss   Brandon  or  "The
Duchess," is fast becoming us extinct us
ig the Dodo.   When such becomes nn nc-
complishedfact, then we predict,and not
uatil then, will domestic service be placed
upon a thoroughly satisfactory basis.

A vi:u\ important case was decided in
tlie Supremo Court nt Wufihington, yesterday, A suit was brought to tesl tlie
constitutionality ol the Scott Chinese exclusion law. An appeal was made from
the United States circitil miirl of California. The Appellant was a resident of
the United Stales, and under a previous
law. he hnd obtained  tr  the Collector
of the porl al San Francisco, a certificate,
unting him the right to visit China,
and return to the United States. During
his absence the Scott law was enacted,
ami umler ila provisions his certificate
was cancelled, Ho brought suit against
the Collector at San Francisco, to compel
him lo honor it. However, the Supreme
Court affirmed the validity of Ihe low.
The opinion recites the different treaties
between the United States nnd China.
the legislation of Congress, effect of
Chinese labor union of California, competition between Chincso ami American
laborers, antl the disturbances following
from their presence, llu: laws of Congress
of 1882 and 1884 requiring evidence of
former residence. It considers and
affirms the power of Congress to abrogate
a treaty, citing authorities of the court on
the Bubject; holding thet tbo propriety
of such action is not a matter of judicial
recognizance, but a matter for the poltti-
eal department. The power uf (JongreSB
is affirmed to exclude aliens ilrotn the

In a Loudon telei/rum which we were
unable to print last night [or luck of
space we read that a member of Parliament from his place in the House asked
whether the (Joveriiment would, after
the retirement of 1/ird Londonderry,
appoint a Royal Prince to the position
of Viceroy of Ireland with 11 suitable
residence and retinue. Surely tins is
rather like throwinn a sop—und lint a
very littlo sop—to Cerberus. Tn Mr.
Parnell and his clientele, it is tlio tjift of u
■tone, when they ask for bread. Unfortunately, the uncrowned Kinicif Ireland not
only wants bread, but un large 11 slice
that it would, we fear, go fur to spoil the
whole loaf. The Rt. Hon. Edward
Heneaxe bud yet another sop or stone (?)
to offer. He would abolish entirely the
office of Viceroy, and suggested Hie transference of tha duties of that official to tbe
OWef Secretary for Ireland. Mr. W. H.
Smith, the Government leader in the
lower House, promised consideration of
both the .Questions. We think Mr.
Heneage haa struck the nail squarely on
the head.
Fboii St. Petersburg we learn thnt the
Ozarewitch is'to marry the Princess
Helen of Montenegro. On the face of it
this appears but a verv harmless announcement, inasmuch as Montenegro,
as its name signifies, is little bnt a black,
•j. et rugged mountain. Its capital--
Cettlnje—is composed of miserably
squalid housee^st|hatched roofs being the
rule. The Ptimo's house is by no means
■ejus, in appearance at least, to those in
which onr better class merchants or pro-
feaalonal men We. The total population
Of Montenegro dHttB not nearly equal that
of a second rate English city ; and yet
those who have followed European events
closely during the last 20 years, will
readily be able to read between the lines

The venerable snake catcher does not like
it hi the winter months, and passes ua much
timo aa ho can away from it. leaving his wifo
and the snakes t" keep each other company
They hibernate together, the serpents Bleeping
in the cold buck room and tlio uld woman
dozing before tho wood lire, which burns
night aud day when tbo snow ia on the
ground. Old Zack, as he Is usually called, is
generally pursuing his slippery trade pr doing his share of slumbering before a barroom
stovo in ono of tho numerous small villages or
settlements at tho foot of the mountain. He
was engaged in tho latter avocation a few
days ago, whon tho reporter aroused him and
asked him how he felt. Ho said he was well,
but rheumatic, and added that tho reptile
business was brisk.
"It's always a sight safer in winter than in
summer," he said, when he had taken boiuc-
thiug to wash down Ills sleepiness, "and
though 1 don't get as many snakes 1 like It
hotter. In summer the it it tiers and tho copperheads stand acbiiiicoVof catcbJu* you instead of your trappin' them, Vou see, they're
always wide awake and keeptn1 thoir eyes
peeled for danger. I can Ibid thorn ready
enough, but to get them into llio leather bag
I carry is u horse of another color. I have all
sort of ways of catch in' them. Sometimes. 1
set traps for them, mid that's a heap the
safest way. Tho trap is only un open basket
with a lot of red flannel Insido. Hnukea,
unless they're disturbed, will always go back
to thelrJold aloeplri'ground when the sun is
high. When 1 find ;i kii ike track I follow it
until I come either t ■ (liu serpent or hts
bod. If It's the seipat, I try to pin
his neck to tho ground with a forked
stick that I carry. That's mighty dangerous work if ho'sn mule.),, for I must go
very close to him, and i'f'I miss him at; the
first jab I'll bo apt to l.e elnser in a second.
However, I nover missed yet, and 1 don't
supixwo I over willn-.w, I'm that experienced,
Whon I have him down 1 take him with my
band, close behind tho.fork, so that ho can't
turn his head to bite tne, aud drop (lira into
the bag. But if the snake hasn't gone to bed,
and I don't hnd bim, I go back about fifty
yards along the track, and lay the basket
down with the lid open. Ihen I hunt more
serpents. When 1 conic to tho basket again,
in two hoursoi* y», 1. civ.'p up from behind
and slam the cover slui:.. Tho snake is generally inside, mixed up with the flannel. He's
found tho place too comfortable to get out of
it in a hurry. Tho serpent may be the wisest
boost of tho field, but he's a luxurious cuss,
and ho don't value bis life nowhere as compared With his comfort.
"When I flndabole witlir-nake marks about
its mouth 1 just hang a running noose of catgut over It, and fasten tho single cud ton
stick liko n fishing rod. Then I put a lump of
soft bread soaked in milk before tho bole, and,
goin' back, I hold the rod iu my hand. Nearly
all snakes aro dead set. on milk, und tho smell
of tho bait is protty sure to ilriw tho ono I'm
after out of tho hole. Ho must pass his head
through tho loop to reach the bread, and when
he does that I jerk tho rod, tighten the noose,
and I havo him.    It's just like fishin'.
"Then there's my dog, Viper. Iio catches
a lot of snakes ni id helps mo to catch more.
In tho summer, when ho finds a snake, ho'U
walk around him until he makes him dizzy
trying to keep his ugly eyes p'iuted at the
danger. At last he'll cither drop his head
or make a turn the other way to tukq thu
kinks out of his body. Thou Viper Is on him
as quick as a wink. Ho grabs him by tho
back of the neck, out of reach of his fangs,
and brings him to rael without hurting
him. In tho winter he eaa't catch tho
snakes himself, but ho leads mo to holes In
trees and othor Bnug places whero they lie.
Just to bo on tho safo side, I push a stick into
thoir bedrooms flrst; but thoy'ro always as
good as dead, thoy'roso sound asleep, nnd I
can pull them out with my hand, covered
with a thick cloth glove. I havo to use a
good deal ofcether to stupefy my snakes when
I'm movln' |bem from ono bo:*, or bag to another.
"Who buys my serpents? Well, I'll tell
you. Circuses and small museums, as well as
oldfossilsof naturalists, who aro always want*
in' curiosities, and when I catch a snake with
two heads, or two tails, which I do about
throe times a year, I get a good price—often
as much as $100—for him. Tho common reptiles aro worth only a fow dollars each.
Hollo, horo's Viper. Whero havo you been,
sir f There's up snakes down hero, you know."
An ill looking dog, with only ono eye,
trotted up to the stovo and lay down bofora
his master, His worth as a serpent chaser
may have been abovo estimate, but his market value was clearly below par,—New York

Chances of Life.
Some very interesting statistics respecting
tho death rate of tho French troops stationed
In tho different, colonics havo just beon supplied to «Uio Academy of Scionco by Dr.
Lagnoau, says a Paris correspondent The
mortality of the soldiers hi tho mother country averages from 0 to 11 per 1,000, In Algo*
Halt ranges from 11 to 13 per 1,000, and in
Tunis it is merely n fraction higher. In
Cochin China, however, tho death rate
doubles, and at Pondlcherry it trebles tho
normal rato in Franco; while in Tonqulu hi
1885 it attained tho figure of 00 per 1,000; nor
is this all, for many soldiers sent home Invalided either dio ou tho journey or after
Franco has boon reached Sonogal and Gut-
ana ore extremely unhealthy colonies. In
tho former the mortality among tho troops
averages 73 per 1,000, while in tho latter in
bad years it has attained tho terriblo figure
of 337 per 1,000. In Reunion, where the
moan death rate is 30 per 1,000, it rose during
the Madagascar expedition to UIJ per 1,ihm.
On tho other hand, Otalieito and New Caledonia aro oven moro healthy than tho mother
country, tho mortality being estimated at
only 8 to 0 per 1,000. - Boston 1 lerald.

A Wounded Duck ^rovc« Too Much for
Three Largo Ciiglcs.
A Memphis sportsman told the following
interesting story to a reporter of Tbo Appeal:
From my blind in tho willows I heard the
whiz of a duck's wings ta my left. I turned
hastily, and at tho sarai time threw my gun
to a ready. It was a cross-flyer, "green-
winged" teal, going liko he was sent for tho
doctor.   1   fired   immediately  aud   "wing-
ilipped" bim. Tho speed with which ho was
going landed him far tteyond tho reach of
' ray second barrel. As soon as he struck the
water be began to swim toward tho middle
. of the lake.    Iu   less  than  two  minutes I
i heard tho scream of afl eagle. Turning ray
eyes toward the sound I SAW, at a great alti-
i tudo above tho timber, an immonao bald
eagle.
1     "Now you'll soo fun," remarked tho native
. with me; "but he'll never catch him," he con-
eluded, as he took an extra pull on his strong
: oid pipe.
j By this time tho eaglo had begun to circle
over the wounded duck. Nearer and nearer
ho drew toward tho Beared bird as he diminished the circlo at every flight.
The duck, with bis sharp eyes fixed on the
; eagle, swam round nnd round. Jus* as his adversary flow.    When nbout fifty yards above
his prey tho groat bird littered a scream, as
if to put the terrified duck on his guard, nnd
mado a dart, with his talons outstretched,
t directly at bim.   On camo the eaglo with the
i tmeed of an arrow, and I expected to seo tho
' wounded duck borne away by the "king of
. birds" without any chance for bia lifo what
; ever.
;     "Seo him divol" cried tho nalivo, as tbo
j duck went out of sight beneath tho placid
I waters.   'Tho eagle, realizing the fact that lie
; bad missed his prey, shot upward iu tho air
to mako another onslaught   Aj ho did bo be
again utterod a scream.
"Dur, man; ho has yelled for his mate, nn'
! de two of 'em will do up dat little duel; if he
j don't git out of dat open water and hide in de
1 grass," remarked tho negro paddler.
{Scarcely hod tho Sound nf the eagle's call
i died away when I eaw its mate flying
swiftly toward the battlo ground. I imagined
I could soo feathers on the wounded duck rise
as the3o two Immense birds circled above it.
After a preliminary understanding between
them eagle No. 1 mado another dive at the
duck, whllo eaglo No. 3 circled close enough
bo tho water to catch tho duck a3 soon as it
showed its head after its first divo from No.
I. I saw tho play and watched tho fight for
lifo of tho littlo duck with intense interest,
and wished that they would pass near enough
to mo to bo placed passe de combat by a load
from my gun.
"Look! lookl ho makin' for do cover.''
cried tho negro, as tho duck showed itself
fully 100 yards nearer 11 e grass. Down went
eagle No 3 and down went tho duck under
tho water, as I scored the fifth clean miss foi
the hungry birds.
As tho maddened eagle rose to givo ita
mato another chance it also uttered u piercing scream, which, as if by magic, brought
forth another ono of Its kind.
"Dor, now, if dem 'fro great big birds ain't
'gwine to fight dat one lit.llu duck, den I'm a
sinner," again spoke tho negro. And so they
did, taking turn about as before, but with
no better success, as every divo tho duck
would make brought him closer to the grass.
Onco under cover, they gavo up the fight,
and the wouudod bird was spared until the
shades uf night, when he would havo to do
battle for his life with coons, mink and
other prowling varmints that nightly patrol
the marsh and feeding grounds by which
Wapanoee lako is surrounded. Mo intent
was 1 on watching- Ihe light that I missed
several good shots while the battlo went on,
and ended my day's sport a few minutes
later by stepping oil'my blind inlo tho lako.
Of course 1 Immediately returned to tho
olub house for repairs and a little bracing

rolling Cattle,
Tho practice of removing tho horns of
dairy cattle, which was recently introduced
ou tho milk forms of New Vork nnd New
Jersey, has grown rapidly into favor. The
process is known as "polling" cattle, and the
object is to deprive vicious animals of an
offensive weapon, dangerous to man and
beast.
It is stated that 200 persons are killed in the
United States every year by ill tempered
farm cattle. Perhaps tlywa large figures are
unwarranted, but It is a recognized truth
that fatal or painful casualties of this character are of frequent ooourrenoe in tho dairy
districts. A vicious hull at certain seasons
is scarcely less fierce and dangerous than tho
Hon or tiger of tho African junglo. Aside
from the injuries to persons, cattle gore ono
another, and every dairyman counts upon
losing a considerable sum annually iu consequence of mutual injuries inflicted by tho
sharp horns of his herd,
In polling an animal tho horn is cut off
with a fine saw about threo-fonrths of an
inch from the head. It cannot bo denied that
the loss of tho horns is a serious disfigurement of somo of tho fancy breeds of cattle.
For this reason, and becauso of an alleged
impairment of tho health of tho animals operated on, somo dairymen strongly oppose
tho practice, denouncing it us cruel and barbarous. But tho experience of tho dairymen
of tho Orango county mill; region decidedly
favors tho practice. There aro nt least fifty
farmers fn this county who havo had a part
or tho wholo of their cattlo polled. Tho
unanimous verdict of these experimenters is
that whero tho operation of removing tho
horns is done by an expert it is attended by
UO serious pain or subsequent suffering to tho
animal, as is evidenced by tho fact, Jn tho
ease of a milch cow, that sho will tako her
feud as usual, and that there is no diminution
of the flow of milk.
Tho advantages vouched for are exceed
iugly Important. In tho first place, taking
tho extreme case of a vioiotis bull, tho operation serves to tamo his ferocity as well as to
deprive him of tho ability to do serious harm.
Tho polled cattlo nt once become quiet and
orderly. They do not goro ono another, nor
do. thoy injure tho hones, or other stook kept
with them on thu farm. There is comparatively no contention or unrest, but more
milk and fatness, iu tho herd. When tho
dairyman offers on animal for solo it is not
disllgurodby horn wounds or scratohos. The
butcher will pay an extra prico for it he-
cause its flush is not bruised, nor is its hide
damaged by scan or wounds.—Middletown

Gun wads*
A new stylo of gunwad is making a stir In
England, It comes from Swedon and is
mado of paper pulp. It is mado cup shaped,
the hollow being placed In tho cartridge next
tp the powder. It follows that the powder
gases press tho edge of this cup against the
barrel and so keep themselves from mingling
with tho shot. Extended experiments show
an increased number of shot placed within
tho standard thirty inch circle, an improved
spread of tho shot, and an increased penetration. Tho recoil of the gnu was naturally increased at tho same time, it is pretty plain
from" thoso trials that thu .ordinary gun wads,
even when they fit the barrel snugly and are
a half inch thick, do uot wholly prevent the
gases from mingling with and so scattering
the shot. —Chicago Times

STORY OF   HIS   EARLY   LIFE,  WHICH
HAS   BUT   LATELY   COME   OUT.
He    Loved   uud    WtV*    Jilted,    thu    Aflair
BndJnsj Most   Trasirally— Left    His Teu-
nnnrnT Dome  and   Wi>nt  to Texa*—Bis
Participation in the Matlnem War,
There have been a great many stories
written said published of tho famous Jack
Hays, the Texas ranger, whose name and
fame is as well known in Texas us in California, but I have never yet seen anything in
print iu regffrd to tho lifw or history of Hays
before ho como to Texas. Most of the stories
about Jack Bays say he was a stranger when
ho camo to Texas, in 1630, und but littlo was
known of his history beforo that lime. I have
recently had the pleasure of meeting an old
Tennesseeon, Capt. Frank liishop, who gavo
mo a littlo piece of Jack Iluys' history, which
ho says accounts  for   Hays' appearance in
; Texas, and whicl .vill no doubt bo interesting to tbo many friends and admirers of the
memory of tho redoubtable Texas ranger, for
there aro few left now of those who loved
and honored him in life.
Hays was born near tbe Hermitage, Old
Hickory's place hj Tennessee, and Capt.
Bishop was born and raised on the adjoining
farm. IPs father served under Gen. Coffee,
for whom Jael;   Hays   was   [tartly   named
I (John Colfee Bays was his full name), and
Frank Bishop and tfaoli  Hays were boys to-
, gether, sharing hi the same sports, attending
the same school lo winter, bunting squirrels,
! coons and 'possumi together and growing up
to manhood in close companionship aud en
tortuinlng for each Other the warmest friend*
Bhip, which was only broken by tho death of
; Col. Haya
LOVE ANU  ItlKLKS.
When Hays was about S3 years old he fell hi
, lovo with Ictus Hetty Donaldson, tho daughter
I of a neighboring farmer, and for a time the
young lady seamed to return his ardent attachment. For a year or moro sho received
his attentions and plighted him her troth.
Preparations for their marriage were being
mado when thero appeared in tho neighborhood a young man named Talbot, from
Mount Vernon, Ky., who was reputed to be
immensely wealthy, and, who, besides being
well educated, was a handsomo and accomplished gentleman of pleasing address and
polished manners, well schooled in all those
art's which go so far in helping a man to win
the good opinion of tho fair sex.
Now, althi uigh Hays was a handsome
young fellow, and was considered the best
rider, tho best dancer aud tho hest shot among
the youth of the country, Miss Donaldson
took n great pleasure in showing him that
the attentions of Mr. Talbot wero not distasteful to her—in fact, that sho rather preferred them to those of young Hays. Now,
Jack Hays was not the man, oven nt that
early age, to tamely submit to a slight or a
wrong from either man or woman. Ho was
a man of ardent temperament, aud could hoi
brook tho idea of being second in anything.
As was said of him a good many years later,
"ho nover failed a friend 01' foo," and he
quickly informed Miss Hetty that ho would
have 110 double dealing; she must cither re
member her plighted word to him and cease
to receive attentions from Mr. Talbot, or she
must recall hor vows and coquette with and
marry whom she pleased. Miss Donaldson
was a young lady Of spirit, and. besides
being piqued at being taken to task by her
lover, was, after the manner of women, much,
taken with tho handsomo face, fine words and
pleasant manners of young Talbot, and so it
ouly required a lew moments and a few sharp
words to givo Mr. Jack Hays his conge and
to announce her determination of marrying
Mr. Talbot.
Hays recognized her right to do as she
pleased In this matter and there would have
been no trouble about it had not Mr. Talbot,
elated by lib; success in winning the affections
of Hays' sweetheart away from him, boasted
of his conquest on overy occasion. At a party
in tho neighborhood shortly after tho rupture
of tho engagement between Hays and Miss
Donaldson, Talbot taunted Hays with his defeat and the result was that Talbot was
knocked down and soundly whipped by tho
disappointed lover, who, though much smaller than his successful rival, was moro than n
match for him iu agility and grit, two characteristics which afterword rendered him famous.
Smarting under his cho-stisemeut, Talbot
sent a challenge to Hays, whicli was, of
course, promptly accepted, and tho preliminaries of tho meeting were quickly arranged.
Hays selected rifles as the weapons aud Capt.
Frank Bishop, my informant, acted ns his
second.
Tho duel took place at sunriso on a bright
Juno morning, about two miles from tho
Hermitage, In a secluded spot. Tho distance
was twenty paces, aud Talliot was shot
through tho heart, never speaking after tho
crack of Hays' rifle, and dying almost instantly.
THK SPIRIT OK ItKMOnSE.
Hays and his second, Bishop, left the
country immediately, and after a great deal
of wandering finally landed in New Orleans,
where they remained for nearly a year, and,
as Bishop says, had "lots of fun." They
were well supplied with money, and thoy
won a great deal while In tho Crescent City,
both at cards and horse racing, a penchant
for tho latter sport being always a noted
characteristic of Jack Hays, though he foreswore cards, and it is said ho waa never
known to hazard a cent at any gamo of cards
during his career in Texas.
After remaining nearly a year in New Orleans nays and Ids companion went home.
Hays remained there a littlo over a year, and
was never indicted or arrested for tho killing
of Talbot. It Beamed to bo the impression of
the people of the community that ho had
done tho fair thing in tho matter, and ho
was not molested. Capt. Bishop says that
Miss Donaldson and her family mado overtures to Hays for a reconciliation, but that
the latter would not hoar It, saying thut Miss
Betty had been tho cause of his killing a follow man, and thnt he could never bo happy
with her or mako her happy.
Capt Bishop says that Hays suffered keenly from remorse for tho killing of Talbot; a
spirit of unrest seemed to take possession of
bim, and ho finally decided to como to Texas,
Mid seek In this uow country forgetfulnoss of
his early troubles in tho homo of his youth.
Whether ho ovor found "surcease of sorrow"
is not known, but that ho found ad\cnture in
plenty, and went through enough to mako
any ono almost "cease to romember," is n
matter of history. Certain it Is that tho unerring aim which enabled bbn to kill Ids antagonist never failed him iu his hour of need,
and that he .sent many an Indian to the happy
hunting grounds, and many a Mexican went
into tho presence of Ids maker, without tho
benefit of clorgy, when Jack Hays drew a
bead on him and his finger pressed the trigger, though ho never, as far as known, slew a
man save In fair uud manly battle.— Texas

They Mole a Move.
In one of our recent issues we called lo
tbe notice of our readers the prevalence
of cigarette smoking among children,
and cfted as examples the two young
Cadre boys, who were arrested in \ ictoria for' stealing some small articles
whilst looking at cigarette holders. These
same vouths have come beiore tbe
Beuks on a more serious charge, that of
stealing a Stove from the steamer Amelia
and a small anchor, which Ihey had
casually picked up. These youngBteiS
don't swin to know what right is, or
possibly their training niaj account for
a great deal, at anvrate the Victoriu
magistrates were wise iu keeping them
in confinement for a day or so to consider
the course they would' pursue towards
them.

Ghost stories are now rather scarce so
possibly a little one might he accepted,
especially as it concerns one whom we all
know well. The truth of the matter is
one of our young Medicos was out late
one night, or rather early one morning,
on a particularly interesting errand,
when just as he entered Inside the gate
af the house he intended to visit lie discovered something whitu like a man with
bia arms outstretched. All the hobgoblin
stories of his childhood arose beiore him
and he shrank into the shadow of Ihe
fence. Tlie object approached at times
and then seemed to recede, bul our
Medico dared not move. At last losing
all self-control he sprang forward and
made a rush towards the gate, tripped,
fell forward and in his terror Clutching
at anything dragged to the ground a long
night thirt.
I was taking my usual after noon walk
around town a day or so ago and was
amused to see another local Medico biking, a supply of stones into his buggy. At
once imagining that business was slack I
hurried up, and followed the Knight of
the Lance thinking that he was about to
make, a subject for himself to
operate on. To my disgust when I
overtook him lie merely said he was carry i|« them, to kill dots with. There is
no dpuht about it, Nauaimo dogs are a
nuisance. 'They follow funerals, hark at
horses, anil only seem to respect the
Salvation Army. They can't compete
with that body and they know it.
