hen for publishing extracts of the lute
Emperor Frederick's diary, states that if
it had been known. Prof. Geffehen alone

many of those whom we observe traveling the streets with chains aboul tbem.
have not committed nny grievous wrong,
yet they are placed with the hardest of
criminals, and what little manhood they
have left soon becomes lost to tbem and
lost to the world. And what Is there-
suit? At tlie expiration of their term of
incarceration tbev are turned loose on the
world, and too often, we believe, that the
degradation they have Buffered is such :■-
to render them Ishmaelites, in fact their
names, their reputation gone; their hand
is turned against every man's, ami every
man,s against them. Tl is too true. Why
do we boast of our civilization and felicitate ourselves upon the strides we have
taken in the last one hundred years? Ts
our boasted civilization a failure, or
are we the veriest hypocrite!
who would pose as humanitarians, while
our very acts condemn ub? We will
speak plainly on this subject, for we
think that the occasion demands it. Is il
conducive to the moral welfare of anv city
that a band of so-culled felons parade the
streets of a city each day? Are the wivi s
ami hildren of our citizens benefitted in
nny way by this spec! n'le which dailv
meets their eyes.
Are not the young likely to become
used (0 the sight? Will they not become
case-hardened, and look upon tbe prisoners as they are daily marched to nnd
from Iheir work, with indifference, aud
not with tlie holy horror which might be
expected. The reason is obvious. Familiarity, It is of ten said, breeds contempt,
and Ihe very sight of the prisoners parading the streets will naturally lend the
young to look upon il ns a matter of
course, and us something which is not lo
lie wondered at.
But here lies the very marrow of the
mutter. Laws are supposed to set a salutary example to evil-doers, but, if the
innocent become thus early lamiliarized
with crime, what can bo expected? Not
a bi^U or ennobling sense of tbe duty
whidi man owes to bis neighbor man, to
say the least. But (here is another and
totally different view to be taken of tho
matter. Wc are all more or less sentimentalists, But sontimentalism, while
sounding very good in the average
novel seldom stands the test of every day
life. Therefore as regards the em]
ment of prisoners upon public worl
wish to enter our protests agalnsl it. It
is not iu keeping with the civilization
of the nineteenth century. II prostitutes
the few remaining"good Instincts which
nre inherent in tbo breast of the most hardened criminal, nnd after he lias done bis
duty in the treadmill, it sends him forth
branded with an indelible brand, as a
criminal and a vagabond. Ho feels he Is
an outcast fioin society, no matter how
trivial was the offence for which ho was
imprisoned. He has been marched out |
among nearly all classes of criminals, thc
public eye has been upon bim, tlie clank
of the chain has beeu heard, and tlie
prison garb has been seen upon him and
is it any wonder that he feels himself—a
pariah—an outcast. Lot reasonable people view this mutter in its proper light,
and we feel assured they will think upon
this subject as wc do. Let the people of
this province demand in the name of humanity that the unfortunate prisoners
shall no longer be employed in public
work of any kind. Let the government
of this country provide suitable employment for them within the prison precincts,
nnd it will be found Hint a man after scrv
ing his sentence apart from the public
gaze, will not come out worse, as is now
the case, than when he. went in. The
present system is a relic, of barbarism,
and the sooner it is stamped out of existence, the better will it be for the fair fame
of British Colombia*
are somen hat laughable, and are  so absurd that comment is needless.
In conclusion we will say that the province is not lo he congratulated upon the
hroadmindedness of tlie majority of her
representatives in the local House. Many
men have outlived their usefulness, and I
the best thing the majority of Her Majesty's loyal representatives can do is 10 re-1
sign the trust placed In their hands, and
give way to men who have the courage of '•
their convictions. There are too many j
"Punchi s and .Indies" In our Legislature.

I there in the afternoon,   when  I was1
' counting Ihe   money  over,  to order
j some coal, and the sight had been loo
| much  for his   avaricious   old   eys.
Minutes went by; I strained   erery
nerve to catch any  remark thut would
convict him:       Thc old fellow went
about his work evidently with great
caution and method.
"X200," he muttered, "not so bad.
All in gold, too; no chance of being
found out here; you can't trace these
shining beauties."
The old scamp was evidently counting the gold in my safe, and calmly
appropriating it in the most matter-of-
fact way.
It is curious the rush of thought that
flitted through my brain as I stood
there, almost breathless, with the receiver in my hand, eagerly awaiting the
next move. I thought ef my men going to get their usual wages, and getting none. What an awful row there
would be when they found they would
have to go away penniless! I was not
a rich man myself, and the loss of my
.C200 wouid be a very serious matter.
Eagerly I strained to catch every sound.
I cocld hear distinctly the chink of the
sovereigns .is he dropped them back in
the small leather bags provided by the
bank, and the chuckle of satisfaction
he gave every now aril then.
"Now he has finished," I think,

A few years ago I went down in
' Wales, where I have a  small colliery
turning out about seventy tons of coal
a day.    The colliery was  some five
miles away from my private house, and
! to save the trouble and expense of re-
i peated journeys I had a telephone laid I suppose he will trouble about the nalt.y

j scene. Many and many a weary tram p
[or cold drive through the sleet and
[snow has that slight thread of wire
fsavtd me. The instrument was so
] clear that any considerable noise made
l.in the room at either terminus could be
{heard without difficulty at the other
lend of the wire.
My coai was cssentiallya steam coal.
Ilike most in Wales, and  my business
Ilay principally among the iron and tin
[plate workers, whom I supplied as far
(S my limited output would permit.    I
Occasionally sold to farmers in the district, but only to a sm 11 extent, and I
fiever depended on them for regular
wders.    1  had, however, one fairly
. rge cusromer from among the farmer
fclass.   He was a man named Evans
l.'nd was a sort of middleman, wh.had
Imassed a very large fortune by his
lienurious living and miserlv dealings.
He was as rich as he well could be,
ind yet he would beat me down in
Irice, haggling .ver twopence as though
It were a small fortune.   It was said »f
lira that he never went about with less
Lin _ioo upon his person, and hi. re-
tilted wealth was fabulous.
One evening I was sitting in my
n-kingroom.    I  remember   it    as
plough it was but yesterday.   It was a
Vosty evening, and my payments were
*|j be made the next day at the colliery.
I had taken the money in the morn-
and locked it away in the safe in
be office at the works.   I don't know
[hat started me thinking,  but it oc-
Ltred all at once that I had left the
[*y in the safe—a gross piece of care-
fssness—but it did not disturb me
_uch becanse I knew my clerk would
in the office, and I would ask him
• keep it until to-morrow.
''No, by Jove, will he though!" I
fowled.    "It is past five, and he will
ave looked up and gone by this time.
11 wonder i f he had noticed that key?"
jl hastily got up, and put my car to
U telephone, listening for any move-
tent to show that Jones was still there.
fNo sound came back; all was silent
1 possible.   I strained my ears with-
result.     No, he  had   evidently
»ne.   I wondered if he had the key
Id whether all was safe.   I wished I
Lid have seen along that wire.
I Hark! what   is that?    A   strange,
Jsping,  scraping    noise,   as   though
f.ne one were scratching on a slate;
peculiar sort of  uncanny   sound,
|iich made me feel very uneasy.
'I don't like this," I think to my-
If; "some one is at that window."
■Still the scraping goes on.   Bye-and-
le I hear a crack and then a slight
lash.
"What can I do?   I am five miles
fay from the colliery; it would take
1 quite an hour to get t» the office
, then it would be too late to stop
-AND
■ 1 » r »».
'earth is he up to?" I heard a loud
ciash of what seems to me half-a-
dozen panes of glass. He is demolishing the whole office to giv it the ap-
pearrnci- of a clumsy burglary—such a
robbery as would most probably be
attempted by the colliers themselves,
and so throw suspicion upon them.
I waited to hear no more. Rushing
for my hat, I was at the magistrate's in
ten minutes, and had procured a warrant for the arrest of Richard Evans
on a charge of burglary, and had the
satisfaction of knowing that two of the
trusty officers had gone to execute it.
Nothing r mains now to H" told,
except il ni F.vnns got his d S"rts in a
long htm of imprisnntni nt, my money
and the bank bags Iv ing found in his
possession. The bank, under th- eir-
(.unistani'i s, gave me an ov. rdraft for
£200. My men were all paid and I
got my money back safely. But now
I never take the wages up to the colliery until the actual pay-day, and
never leave until the men are paid.

From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
18S0: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Strccl, Bloonisbury, London, Dear
Sir:—Wc embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon Ihe wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we niurh question whether a belter is imported into the country, and wc shall be
glad tu hear of ils linding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The oilier brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to tha
native bazaars, and judging from their sale,
wc fancy iheir snjurn there will be but
evanescent. \\"e could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhoea
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Yoniiting of Pregnancy, and
as general Sedative, that have oeeancd
und,. r our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even in
the more terrible forms of Choleta itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used Miy other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that il is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro;
fession and the public, as wc ore of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OK FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
thc Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Exccllancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-CnancelJor Sir Vt,

from the north end. On this claim there

Lecture  On  The   Above   Subject By
The Eev. J. W, Porter, B. P. B. L.,
at Wellington.
The services were opened with singing
by the choir, in which the audience heartily joined.
Prayer was offered by Ihe Rev. F.
Chamberlain.
The following is a brief synopsis of the
speaker's remarks:
Mr. Poiter said that he wished lo tender his sincere thanks to the people lor
the great kindness shown him since in
their midst, He knew of no better way
of describing it than the language of the
poet:
"Such then ihn reverence lu a Rueit
That fellesl toe might juiti thc feuli
Ami fiom hi> deadliest foreman's iloor
I. lH|uestiuiieil turn the banquet o'er."
To the ladies especially was he truly
grateful, for he was a firm believer in tlie
old proverb "That the hand that rocks
the cradle is the hand that moves the
world." He had been accused of speaking too much tothe ladies; but he thought
he was amply justified from the fact that
his mother and two sisters were all three
women; all three ladies: nnd thanks to
the Most High, all three Christians. He
wished it well understood that he was
not here to defend Christian practices.
Christ constituted Christianityjand Christians at best are but humble" followers of
Its declared doctrines, He had no right
to judge a principle or a cause by the delinquencies of its followers. It conies
wilh very bad grace, especially when this
reproach came from an unbeliever, and
reminded him of an anecdote of Edgar
Allen Too, who, being grunted at by a
hog while drunk in a ditch, replied: "I'm
a hogto-nifilit, but you are a hog nil the
lime." Neither wns he here to defend
tbe ministers, though he only wished
himself half as good. He knew that it
was claimed that tho preachers were
rather thick headed, and he hoped that
the Rev. Brother by bis side would pardon the anecdote that he hud once heard
of the little boy who, after having made a
church and preacher out of mud, was
asked whv he had not made the preacher
replied that his mind was not thick
enough. The speaker then dwelt nt
length upon tlie origin of evil and the
necessity of Christianity. He believed
God to have been the Creator of evil, and
that it was necessary so tbnt man might
haven free choice, nnd love God of Ids
own will. Such being tlie ense, the sinner hnd no right to grumble at his own
choosing, but rather say amen to his own
condemnation. A brief history of Ihe
origin and growtli of Christianity was
then given. He then asked what the infidel had done for the world. The life and
denth of Hume, Volney nnd Paine were
uiven, He claimed that every infidel was
essentially selfish. Infidels were advised
to get upon the highest mountain top and
shout aloud like the voice of one crying
in the wilderness, "Here wo are everyone for himself," and the echo would return the "devil for yon all." The speaker
said that he was aware that unbelievers
advocated morality. He offered them n
religion that would keep them instead of
them keeping their morality. The moral
man was like the carpenter who helps to
build the ark but was not saved in it.
Moral men ought to do good—hut death
alone would change the spots of the leopard. Their resolve reminded him of the
rhyme
When ihe devil is sick the devil a saint would lie,
But when the devil is well, the devil of a saint is he,
The infidels were invited to examine
their doubts, and they would find that
spring from a hot-bed of sin, Infidels
could believe anything but the Bible—
they had etiffiient faith if rightly exercised, to make devout Christians. He
had seen among the infidels more faith
than he had found in all Israel. Most
infidels couldn't tell why they were such,
and could give no better reason lor their
opinions than the little darkey who
upon being asked why he wns nn infidel,
said- "Dunno sir, hut I is one." Here
is a religion which is founded in faith,
reared in reason, nnd sealed by the blood j
of a crucified Christ. Here is it religion'
which has stood Hie test of time, has linen |
found sufficient In life, soothing nnd sustaining in death of which no man has ever
yet repented in life or In death. Here is a
religion under which this great nation bus
so long lived and is still moving on to a I
final fulfilment of its great and glorious
destiny, so that to-day wherever tlouis the j
folds of its flag, wherever thai Sag is kissed by heavens breath, the name ol Union
Jack is loved, honored and feared, He
asked what infidels had lo offer as u sub-1
slitulefor this religion? It. wns doubl,
darkness and difficulty in life, and everlasting death, lie did not envy that man
his opinion or life who could believe thut
ho would never again meet the departed
dead. For his own part he would rather
bear the mark of Cain, and go down to
death and dust, rather tbnn ngain relapse
into infidelity. He likened it to a wild
wilderness of woe and desolation. He
compared religion to the Japan current
which kissed with kindly warmth our
wandering waters. He closed with an
earnest appeal to the unconverted. A
hearty vote of thanks wns tendered tho
speaker. The lecturer commanded the entire attention of Ids audience which was
quite large. The meeting rvns then dismissed with a few appropriate remarks by Mr.
Chamberlain.

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the Throat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages llioy extend lo thc lungs J
producing Consumption and to the head, I
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed lo proceed will in time cause
dentil. At the onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go withou
attention is dangerous and may lose ,.a
life. As soon is you feel that soincining I
wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrir
obtain a bottle of Boschee's Germ an Syrup
It will give you immediate relief;
