Dechuanttland is the paradise of the
workingman.    In  the course of our so
journ we never saw a beggar or a starving person.    Masons in Bechuanaland
were getting wages of 15s. to£lperdiem,
and this with meat at 5d. a pound.   Natives in the coal pita wero getting 0s. a
day.   When we consider that a Kaffir's
food, consisting of Boer meal pap, costs
from Sd. to Oil. a day, there is a good mar
gin for saving.    We had Baralongs and
Baeutos working for us,   The former we
found clever with their fingers, but very
poor  in  physique,   with  a great  disinclination for hard work.   Tho Basutos
are a fine race, magnificently propor
tloned,  and excellent workers, willing
and intelligent.   The superiority of the
Basuto and the Zulu is shown indisput
ably by the fact that from them are re
cruited the police and the searchers ol
the diamond fields.   Somo think It probable that tho native races of South Africa

Chicago, June 18.—An afternoon paper
says: "A sensational development In the
Cronin case  is  being prepared )>y the
' officials and is liable at any moment to
j reach that stage where the use of it must
i be made in Blich a manner a" to compel
its publicity. It is nothing else than the
turning state's evidence of one of the
tools of the conspirators ami a revelation
Ivy him of all he knows of the plot, and
the surrender to the police of the names
of the principals and instigators ol the
crime, so far as he knows, or litis reason
to suspect. II is said that the man cannot be held as more than an accessory, as
his knowledge of the diabolical intents of
the men for whom ha tlitl common-place
and apparently innocent favors, did not
come to him until he learned of Cronin's
death through the newspapers and the
manner of his assassination, then the
fear of the penitentiary or gallows sealed
his lips. Then, tori, be was seen
by certain persons supposed tn have
been the chief conspirators and assured
not only of their innocence but
ample protection for himself, and as
consequence he has kept silent. The
discovery of Burke has unnerved this
man and ho is almost ready to talk, It
is claimed he knows all about the renting of tbe cottage, how the men lured
Cronin to death, knew of lhe O'Sullivftn
contract ami other details, it is said
that the men who rented Carlson Cottage were made known to him, as persons here on a mission, at least not so
foul as the murder of Dr. Cronin, ami
that lie hail no idea that Dr. Cronin was
the victim aimed at. His confession,:
authorities think, is a matter of a short |
time. Up to this time he has been hesi
fating and protesting his ignorance of
any detail ot the crime. But as circumstances, pointing tn his guilt anil knowledge, crowd together day after day, he is
growing worried ami the end is not far
off. The hint of his indentity cannot be
given nt (his time.

When Gen. Clarko was subduing hostile

feared no man. Clarke treated him with
contempt, accused him of being a squaw

MR.
•GENERAL"   BOOTH   ANU
SALVATION
The Inst general report of the Salvation Army contained a piteous appeal for
funds, for as the worthy "General1
justly observes, in his somewhat gasping
style, " We must have money." So say
we all; for of course we admit that soup
kitchens and salvation must be paid for.
But if Mr. Booth would give up bis at
tempt to counteract the efforts of genuitn
philanthropists by injudicious almsgiv-
i ng to the poor of London and elsewhere,
we don't see why he should want money.
As the London newspapers very justly
point out, "hundreds of men ami women in the great cities, quite unconnected with the Salvation Army, work for
the poor every week of their lives, and
never expect to receive a farthing for
tlieir services." If thc " brave and devoted " Salvationists, who are ready to
" toll and to suffer privation ami hardship," in order to bring " the lost to tho
Saviour," require adequate remuneration
ns nn inducement, well nnd good. So
long us they are supported by voluntary
contributions nobody has a right to complain. But in that, case we fail to see
why they should be regarded as martyrs,
or why they should look with lofty scorn
upon the race of beneficed clergymen. It
is estimated in the "General's" report
that sixty thousand pounds will be re-
quired for the expenses of the ensuing
twelve months, and that of this sum
£17,600 must go to the "General maintenance fund," which includes the "support of the headquarters staff." There
seems to lie worse trades than that which
Mr. Booth chooses to call "salvation."
We quite admit that these strictures are
by no means applicable to the mere rank
anil file of the "Army," the majority of
whom are doubtless sincere and earnest
enough according to their lights. But
let us look ior a moment at the items of
expenditure: "Slum Work—Amounts
handed to Major Cooke to help meet the
heavy expenses attending the carrying on
o! this work." What nre thev and why
should they be heavy? We should be
glad to think that making a row was expensive. But, we say it with deep regret,
it is not. This is, however, a mere nia.t-
ter of detail. Those who are not deterred from contributing to the Salvation
Army by its own proceedings, and by
the unanswerable criticisms of the Rev.
Llewellyn Da vies will not trouble themselves to ask what "Major" Cooke does
with the cash confided to him. We have
no wish to quote Dean Swift's unnecessarily brutal comments ns to the results to
which religious excitement muy lead, but
the experience of doctors nnd clergymen
could "nn it would," throw a flood of
light upon the harm wrought on impressionable girls and boys by this species
of mono-mania. So far as Mr. Booth's
"soup" is concerned, we feel inclined to
side with the "General" iu the attacks
inadoupon him liy the London press. On
the value of conversion by soup wc,
like Mr. Booth, feel no scruple
nnd admit of no doubt. "A
book which has survived Voltaire,
and will survive Mr. Booth, contains a
a frequent warning to the class of persons who think that they shall be heard
for tbeir much speaking. The Salvationists have improved upon the doctrine of
tlieir spiritual progenitors, for they know
that they shall be heartl for their much
shouting." "Very hearty wasn't it?
asked an enthusiastic disciple of Mr.
EVANGELIST Moon r after the entertainment was over. The person addressed
was a clergyman, and he replied with becoming gravity, "My friend, God knows
whether it was hearty, it was very
noisy." Mr. Booth with graceful anil
easy piety, asks his antagonist Mr.
Davies for a list of the souls which he
(Mr. Davies) has been the means of saving." This we suppose was a reply to
the courteous request of the clergyman—
that some evidence might be furnished
of the existence of persons reclaimed by
the Army from a disreputable, to a respectable life. However, we are at a
loss to imagine how Mr. Davies can reply to the question put to him. Of this
at least we feel sure, namely, that Mr.
Booth's clerical opponent struck home
when he described this operation of
"saving souls" as a "boisterous war
against sobriety of manner, sanity and
common-sense, against a charity which
discriminates and does not confound,
against rational religion and faith in
' ion's laws."
and her name respected. There has been
frequent discussion of late both in and
out of the Imperial Parliament, with
respect to the defences of coaling stations
and harbors for British shipping; and In
the near future there is great probability
that something more than mere discussion will be done. There may be some
doubt as to the value of the modern man-
of-war, but there is still more, we think,
as to tlie value of modern fortifications.
Apparently every kind of land defence
requires another defence behind it.
Mines require to be covered by machine-
guns, and these again to be really eflec-
tivc, require to be backed by heavy
fortifications containing big cannon.
Finally nobody seems to know what
effect the new explosives—the invention
of which our European mail constantly
reminds us—is to have upon any kind of
fortifications we may erect. Mines, too,
I have a trifling drawback to their
I efficiency when we reflect that if they
serve to keep out the enemy's ships from
our harbours and river mouths, they
also serve to keep our own ships in. It
would be well for tbe British Government
to recognize once for all the truth that
lor harbours such as Esquimalt, it
would be absolutely fatal for us to be reduced to depend on fortifications at all?
If ever British war-ships allow an
enemy's cruisers to hang about our coast
for as long a time as will ennble them to
burn even a trading sloop, or bombard
even anything at all, the game is as good
as up. Ellicient guard-ships we must
have, and with tbem we are well content
to let "fortifications" "slide."
MISCELLANEOUS   NOTES.
Ir is a well-known fact that numbers
of Chinese nre married to European
women in Ihe Australian Colonies, and
this is one nf the sores which rankle in
the hearts of the European male inhabitants of that country ; but it is perhaps
not so well-known that the treatment
such women may expect nt the bands of
their Celestial husbands upon their return to the Flowery Kingdom, is anything but pleasant. Were it otherwise,
there would, we think, be fewer marriages between such very opposite
peoples. Whilst in Australia a Chinaman
will to some extent adapt himself to
European ideas, nnd will at least allow
his very much better half to live as
she was wont to do. All differences in
manners and customs the poor mistaken
creature may notice in her husband, sho
will perhaps think strange, but romantic.
The illusion is dispelled, however, as
soon as she reaches the "ancestral halls."
There she is. we understand, t rented as
are all Chinese wives—shut tip, and
enlously guarded from the outer world.
She has lo adopt the Chinese customs,
live in a miserable hovel, eat food sbe
has been totally unaccustomed lo, and
mix witb people whose very conversation must, providing she understands it,
seem strange aud hateful to her. We
have ourselves frequently seen Chinamen with these European wives, both ill
Brisbane and Sydney; the resulting
families being not infrequently large.
We hnve long wondered why the Australian authorities did not take some
steps to warn the ignorant women of the
class from which these wives are drawn,
as to what they may ultimately expect In
the  event   of their taking   "John"   for
better or for worse.
OUR   FORTIFICATIONS.
There are vague rumors floating about
as to the intentions ofthe I'nited States
Government, in the event ofthe dispute
regarding Behring Sea nntl the Alaskan
boundary not turning out as tbey could
wish. From Ottawa and Toronto papers
we infer the existence of considerable irritation on the part of our countrymen in
Eastern Canada with the Imperial Government, in that they refuse to take a
more decided stand. Unlike our Eastern
confreres, the knowledge whicli we possess
of the matter is not of such kind as to
warrant us in giving an opinion upon the
subject, though of this we feel well assured, that Canada's interests are safe in the
hands of 1/jrd Salisbury, and that'when
the right time comes, England will now
as .ever.know how lo make her power felt
It has been saitl tbat the greatest benefactor of the human race would be he
who could enable men to drink an unlimited quantity of wine without getting
drunk. Such a man has been found.
Dr. Bell invented the telephone, Imi its
wonders pale before the telegastograph.
This is an electrical machine by which
the palate can be tickled and pleased by

without fear of indigestion or of inebriety.
By putting soup or lisb or wine into a

bon-ricants. They hnve only to put lhe
wire in their months, nntl then seem to
be eating and drinking. Thev may get
drunk or over-fed; but the moment the
contact is broken the evil effects pass off,
and nothing remains but n "delightful
exhilaration." The inventor, however,
keeps the modus operandi aBlrict secret
and wishes to perfect his discovery before
he discloses il to the world.
If our Chemainus and Comox friends
will allow us to make a suggestion, we
would say procure three or four brace of
California quail and turn them oul. The
cost is but trifling, as this grand little
game-bird is comparaiively abundant in
Victoria, The bird lays from lli to 20
eggs, so that the pace at which coveys
increase is something alarming. We
ourselves hold that there is no finer
shooting in the country than quail, Hint
is to sny. where the under-brush is not
too thick, nnd when the shooter owns a
gootl dog. About 10 yours ngo 4 brace
were placed on an Island in the Gulf of
Georgia: within siz years they seemed
almost ubiquitous. Iu one "flock" we
counted 111! as they hopped through a
picket fence. True, the severe Winter of
three years ngo killed n great number, but our renders will remember thnt
the lengthened duration of the frost nntl
the abnormal depth of the snow were
such as to excuse a much hardier bird
than the California quail in declining
the struggle for existence.

SAMOAN    HURRICANES.
Wind-Storm. That Are Fresjnentls- Accompanied bj Kartliquake..
Captain Richard W. Meade, the
United States naval officer who commanded the Narragansett in Samoan
waters in 1872 and now commandant
of the Washington Navy Yard, said:
"The harbor of Apia, in Opolu, is a
coral reef harbor with an entrance
about 1,500 yards wide, and open to
the north. It is not large and the anchorage ground is limited. During the
yearly hurricane season, which lasts
through December, January, February, March and April, it is considered
rather a risk to remain in Apia, while
Pago-Pago, in the neighboring island
of Tuitilla, is perfectly safe, being
land-locked and otherwise sheltered.
Hurricanes, however, are not very
frequent at the Samoan islands,
though they occur frequently at the
Tonga group. They generally sweep
up through the belt of ocean between
Tonga and the Samoan groups. In
April, 18o0, and in January,
1870, the islands were visited
by terrific hurricanes which destroyed the banana and breadfruit crops, reducing the natives
to the verge of starvation for
several weeks. These hurricanes are
often accompanied by earthquakes, and
the conjunction of the two work terrible injury. On the 26th of March,
1883, all vessols in Apia harbor except
one small schooner were driven out to
sea and lost. This was attributed at
the time to a series of heavy tidal
waves caused by an earthquake. Considerable damage was done on shore
also. On the wholo the climate of the
Samoan islands, though variable, is
very pleasant, bad weather only occurring during the winter months. At tills
time there are long and heavy rains,
attended sometimes by high winds and
northerly gales. Ordinarily the winds
are light and variable, with frequent
and sudden squalls. For tho rest of
the year tho weather is very fine, and
from May to November the trade wind
blows steadily from the southeast.
Except Captain Mullnn, of the Nipsic,
it is not known that any of the American commanding officers had ever had
experience in these Islands, or knew
of the risks attending an attempt to
ride out a hurricane inside the reef."

SUCCESS    AND     FAILURE.
Why It Is t.'nju.t to Judge a Man*. Life liy
It. K.ceptlons.
A single brick, if it be an exceptional brick, is not "a fair testof the whole
structure." This is true whether the
brick is far above or far below the
average. Because u man has once in
his life sunk down below his true
character, if he has risen again never
moro to sink, it is not fair to sneeringly
single out that blemish as 11 specimen
of his manhood; and because a man
has risen onco in his life lo extraordinary lofty achievement, if helms
fallen buck to his own level never
more to rise, it is not fair to refer with
pride to that achievement as a specimen of his strength. While it is true
thut a muu is no stronger than his
weakest poinl, when that point is involved in the testing, yet that weakest
point may he now entirely eliminated
from his character. leaving behind
nothing but the ugly surface-blemish
on his record; and whilo it is
true thut whal we have done once we
can generally do again, yet if, as a
mutter of fact, we bave nover succeeded in doing it again, it is not fair
to credit ourselves with 11 present
ability which does not in reality appear to exist. To ferret out past mistakes antl fasten Cera on another's
character as its label, or to herald an
isolated past achievement as a sample
of our present power, is to reverse the
flrst principle of truth, and make the
exception the rule. How much harm
■ and Injustice nre done by such unsound
judgment! To be fair, and to make
legitimate deductions, one must judge
a character, a principle, a tendency, at
its normal best, not from the highly
forced single success—still less from

Jokes to Let By the Hour.
"Jokes to Let" Is a sign that may he
read on some oflice door before long If
a young man who thinks he has got an
inspiration carries out his threat. He
revealed his scheme one night recently
to a person whom ho happened to
meet. Said he: "I hnvo got un idea
that is going to make my fortune, and
a big one at that. 1 am going to start
a joke shop and a funny story factory.
You see, I am something of a hand at
making jokes myself, and 1 oan hire
two or three others to get up funny
Btories for me. Then 1 intend to advertise for patrons, and I'll get them
easy enough. There are plenty of
young men who like to ^nenr clever,
when they really are no mc o clever
than a cow. When they go out in
company with a party of their felloWB
they want to say something smart or
tell a story that will delight the girlB.
Now to remedy tho inability of most
young men to do this is 11 long felt
want. This is just what 1 propose to
fill. I will simply contract to allow
them to use the jokes or stories, one,
twice or three times, or as often as
they care to pay for it. In fact I will
rent them my jokes. If they violate
my confidence I will expose them; that

PUBLICATION    OF    LAWS.
How Blemishes, Are oiten Engrafted I'tse"
Our StatuU'-Book..
The laws are published in various
forms.    They are  first published separately in sheet form, as "slip laws,"

the fair sex. If not this, they are order of their receipt. When so pub-
shrewd enough to tighten the coils of lishetl the slip laws are given to the
monopolistic power chiefly about those editor of the laws (a competent per-
articles that are in demand for their son elected from the legal profession

any rate, there is no trust among the ly employed for that purpose), who

the makers of watches and silverware i legislation, arranges the acts and res-
practically seek to dietato tho minutia j olutlons by "chapters," and prepares a
of our business in so far as those I suitable Index; and under his editorial
articles are concerned. In such art- j care at the end of the session of Collides as rings, brooches, pins and trink- [ (frees, they appear again in pamphlet
ets there is a generous rivalry among | form as "session laws." Lastly, at the
manufacturers, which has tended to j close of a Congress, the laws of each
be beneficial both In enhancing quality ; session are gathered by the editor into
and in  reducing cost.    The man who i a single  volume and bound as "Slat-
utes-at-Large." The numerous readings given to the printed "proof," and
the careful comparison with the text
of the originals, effectually guard
against discrepancies. The manner in
which the department performs its
duty is thoroughly creditable; the
manner in which Congress dismisses
^^^^^^^^ its own work Is, in many instances,
been made to fuel its influence. Most j absolutely disgraceful. Some of the
of us had our proillH greatly reduced | rolls received at the department are
and not a few have been run out, of ■ disfigured by erasures, interlineations
the business. I will venture to say , and blots, by errors in orthography,
that when the Merrill anti-trust bill | capitalization and punctuation, and by
was introduced into the House there j hieroglyphic mangling that suggest
were few Jewelers In the State who I the "masterpieces" of school-boy
wero not wishing it would pass, so us art. These and more serious itnper-
tn bring the needed relief.   The Amer-| factions, once placed upon tho parch-
buys jewelry to-day of a dealer who
does not demand an exorbitant margin
of profit pays pretty nearly a normal
price for what he gets.
"With articles of utility, however,
the matter Is different For four years
the watch trust has been growing in
power, and most dealers, especially
the  proprietors of   small stores, have
icau Watch Manufacturers' Association and  the Jobbers" Association, by
a system of rules and a policy of suspensions and boycotting, have held an
iron hand over us to such an extent
tlm! the amount of our purchases, the
places at which we deal, tho rates
at which we sell, the discount we allow and ovon the time we sell on are
dictated to us. Retail jewelers are
forced to buy of the jobbers unless
they can make a lirst purchase of
$5,000 not anil buy ill least $20,000
worth of goods during the year. If
they ran make such purchases they
are regarded as jobbers ami can profit
by Ihe manufacturers' prices, and jobbers nre discountenanced and expelled
from thc trust if they sell at :i lower
rate of profit than 2,"i per eenl. In
short, the whole purpose of the trust
is to keep up prices and secure patronage to the members ofthe trust. In
doing this the smaller dealers are
frozen out remorselessly.
"In tin' matter of silverware, the
trust, 1 think, is not so Iniquitous,
There are few styles in the market,
however, which are not in some
way or other covered by monopolies. Thai is one of the great
reasons why novelties in silver
come so high. il is one of tho
latest fails for young ladies to decorate
their dresses with all sorts of fancy
pieces, the styles of wii It are constantly changing and th,' prices oi
which are consequently far beyond
the actual value of the goods. With
watches the cases and the movements
alike conic under the power of lhe
trust, but with silverware it is only
the designs that the trust has control
of. While I think that watches and
silverware are much lower than they
used to be, 1 am certain that the minimum price consistent with good
workmanship and quality is not yet
reached, and that it would be vastly
for the benefit of the public, as also
for lhe dealers In jewelry, if some
scheme could bo devised or law passed
by which competition could have its
natural Influence and we dealers be
freed from leading-strings."- —Chicago

THE   COMMON    HOUSE    FLY.
tYltimnntl Where It Breeds niul llotv It
Pusses Through the Winter.
The common house By (Mttsca do-
iiteslica) is one of the most widely distributed insects, and yet very little is
known of its life history. Prof. Packard, in his great work, "Guide to the
Study of Insects," says: "No one has
traced tho transformations of this Hy in
this country.*' He then proceeds to
copy II few lilies from a European work
iu regard to the form of the larva, but
the information given iu regard to its
early stages is meager and unsatisfactory. Flgulei'i in his magnificent
illustrated work, "The Insect World,"
ttfter briclly describing the house fly
says: "Every one knows how annoying il is toward tho end of summer,
and especially so in the south of
Trance during the hot season." But
ho gives no information iu regard to
its habits, where it breeds or lives in
I he larva or grub state. Wo have also
consulted a number of ontoinological
works published in this country in recent years without discovering any
additional in formation in regard to the
lifo history of the house liy. It is supposed, however, that tho females do-
posit their eggs in all kind of filth or
decaying vegetables nnd animal substance, where they hatch, and the
grubs feetl until they aro transformed
Into reddish-brown pupa1, from which
the perfect Hies isstioduring the warm
weather in summer and autumn.
Whether the eggs laid late in the
season puss the winter safely or after
becoming grubs remain half or wholly
dormant until spring is at present
unknown, lint as houso files are found
in their perfect state In houses and
other buildings during tho winter, lt
may be that tho entire summer broods
are thc progeny of those few indivldu-
aU curried over from one season to the
next. -ST. V. Sun.

the blunder, however mischievous the
distortion or omission, the State Department is powerless to add a connecting dot. or stroke. Mistakes made
hy Congressional enrollingclerkshave
undone legislation accomplished by
Congress after hours of debate. An
Item of half a million dollars for public purposes was bodily left out In the
enrollment of a recent appropriation
act; and the substitution of a comma
for a hyphen in transcribing a tariff
measure some years ago caused a loss
to the Government of thousands of
dollars before the error was detected
and further loss arrested by the passage of another act. These are but
specimen cases. It is humiliating to
think that a sleepy or incompetent
clerk should be able to frustrate the
legislative will ofa Nation, and startling Ui reflect on the opportunities for
fraud by deliberate tampering with the
public rolls. Blemishes enough are
engrafted upon our statute-books by
the legislators themselves, in the shape
of careless or unwise enactments:
surely, if wc can not always have clear

clear penmanship In the parchment

PEANUTS    FOR    INSOMNIA.
Illftlmp l.yiuttn Mays That tt Hutf-l'int Dole
Dally Btreet. a Cure.
Dr. Theodore B. Lyman. Episcopal
Bishop of North Carolina, has written
the following letter to the Kalelgh
Daily News and Courier:
"I think I have made a very valuable discovery, and 1 am anxious that
others should also enjoy the benefit of
it. For nearly two years 1 have been
suffering greatly from sleeplessness at
night. I have tried a great number of
proposed remedies, some of which
have helped me a little, but not for
any length of time. A little more than
a fortnight ago, while staying at the
house of a friend in the country, my
good hostess brought into the parlor,
quite late in the evening, a bountiful
supply of peanuts. As I am very fond
of them, when they are not too much
cooked, I ate quite freely of them, and
soon after retired to bed, I found tho
next morning that I had enjoyed the
best sleep I had experienced for over a
month. I attributed this at once to
the peanuts, and determined to try
them again the following evening, i
did so, and also drank a glass ot fresh,
sweet milk after I had finished the
peanuts. Thnt night I slept still
better, and how, for a fortnight, I
have partaken of the peanuts and milk
every night, and have not only slept
remarkably well, but have also fully
recovered from a slight attack of Indigestion whloh had t Alibied tne before. 1 now dnd that peanuts, carefully roasted and not overdone, so as
to be at all burnt, are surely a remedy
for sleeplessness and also for that form
of indigestion which produces sleeplessness.
"There is a popular impression that
peanuts are indigestible, but I have
never found them so unless they were
too muoh roasted or had been roasted
many days before. When too much
cooked or when stale thoy certainly
nre indigestible, but when carefully
rousted and fresh they promote digestion. They should be eaten shortly
before going to bed. and not more than
a half pint should be taken. They
should be rousted before they are
shelled, and shelled only as they aro
eaten. A half pint of shelled nuts
would be too many. I commend this
remedy with great confidence to those
who are alllicled with insomnia, particularly if indigestion is In part Ihe
cause of it. The peanut is a very val- I
liable article of food when carefully ]
roasted and partaken of in moderation, j
I hopo none of my readers will imagine
that 1 hale slatted a peanut farm, and
am wishing to create tt boom III that
article, but I shall be rejoiced if what
I have written should ho the means of
bestowing on any others the great j
benefit which I have derived from Ihis
simple agency.'

RELIEF    SOCIETIES.
One Way uf Preventing Labor Trouble, eat
tireat Kalli oittl System..
Seeing as we do the many lines ia
the country grouped into large systems whose ownership will no doubt
remain stable in years to come, permanence of employment and stability
of position is easy to be guaranteed
and the corporations can now better
secure their own rights and strengthen
themselves against the encroachments
of the public by drawing their employes more closely to them, showing
that paternal care and solicitude for
them which tend to establish good
feeling and community of interest-
Relief associations under the guidance of the companies will do this.
They are flourishing on the Baltimore
& Ohio anil the Pennsylvania railroads.
The organization on those roads may
be taken xs the type of what other
companies should do. On the former,
the scheme originated with the elder
Garrett nearly ten years ago. At its
organization all employes could join
without regard to age. After a short
period those over forty-five years and
those who could not pass a medical
examination were not allowed to join.
All persons employed regularly by the
company are required to pass a medical examination, must be under forty-
five years of age, and must join the
relief association. Thus it will be
seen that nearly all their employes are
members. The compulsory feature
I looks to an outsider like a hardship,
j but the obligation is on him only who
| seeks employment.
The employes are divided into two
classes—hazardous and non-hazardous:
and these two classes are divided
into five others who pay into a
fund certain fixed sums each month,
according to tho amount of wages
regularly received. Benefits are
paid in weekly indemnities in
cases of sickness and disablements and
a gross sum to the beneficiary wheu
death occurs. They vary according to
the amount contributed. Free medical
and surgical attendance is given;
hospitals are established; physicians
are appointed at convenient places
along the line. The company has contributed $100,000, the interest of which
at six per cent, goes into the fund
yearly. It also puts $20,000 a year
into a superannuation fund. A building loan association has also become
quite popular.
There are many other liberal features
of which limited space will not permit
an enumeration.
The Peniruylvania Railroad Company
has also adopted a system of relief
similar to that of the Baltimore &
Ohio, but not so extensive. It is entirely voluntary and numbers over
20,000. It rapidly increases in popularity as its benefits become more appreciated.
In both companies the employes are
rapidly leaving the local benevolent
associations; they find they can insure
themselves with the aid of a solvent
nnd powerful company for much lees
money than in the thousand and one
local lodges whose solvency depends
on the honesty of a secretary or a
treasurer.
Other systems of relief, but to a
minor extent, havo been adopted by
the railway companies—notably free
hospital service for the sick and disabled upon the Santa Fe and Missouri
Pacific, all of which materially lessens
the number of claims for damages and
subsequent costly trials and judgments
in the courts.—!.. O. Goddard, in
Century.
m * A
NORWEGIAN    LEGENDS.
Fautn.tic   Tale.   Originating    with    th.
Norsemen or Yore.
Strange legends hover over these
regions; the mountains were trolls
(giants), who at one time had been
courting, and who, when rejected oi
when driven to jealousy, pursued each
other, rolled mighty rocks upon each
other, or hurled them in each other's
path, and ended by being enchanted
into stones themselves by some mightier trolls. These legends are immense,
as If they treated about folding the
City of New York together like a carpet, carrying tt off across the Atlantic
nnd unfolding it again upon the plains
of Normandy, without a bouse, a child
or n cup being broken on the way.
These regions had at one time a poet,
Peter Dass (contracted from the
Scotch Dundiis), who died In 1708. He
described tn original verses this part
of Norway—Nordland—and the love
and the Imagination of the people
have clung to him to such a degree
that now the worthy Nordland olorgy-
mnn is to them as a giant of Solomon's
height in the tales of the East. He tied
down the devil as you would bind and
tame a dog. Satan was always at
his beck and call, and had to bring
him every thing he wished for and to
carry him wherever he wanted to go.
One Christmas Eve Peter Dass sailed
on a millstone down to the King ol
Denmark, where he was right royally
entertained, but next day he delivered
his Christmas sermon in his little
parish church in the north, hundreds
of miles away. In tho same way that
they have endowed him, these people,
whoso imagination has been reared by
the wild, weird nnture around them
during several months of continuous
light, night and day, during an equally
long period of continuous darkness,
with the wild restless rays of the
aurora borealis across the canopy ol
the heavens, and in tho fantastic life
at sea, with the lish shoals under them
and millions of birds hovering above
them, they will probably in a century
or two similarly endow those who today have won their love or their
h at red. —Bjornstjerno Bjornsou,

In a BOi'did vestibule, whose walls
are covered with torn matting, th6
jailer smokes his pipo filled with
kiff, that slightly opiated plant which
takes the place of tobacco In these
parts. Threo women, draped in their
Itaik, arc weeping near a grated opening in the prison dour: and In the interior dnrknessn human face is scarcely discernible. As we approach, the
women -tand aside, and n lean arm Is
passed through the grating and
stretched toward us suppliantly. without a word being uttered. I put a
silver piece in thc hand: Immediately
one of th,: women takes the money and
hurries away Inward the town, doubtless to buy bread. I look through the
grating, and distinguish a vast foul-
smelling and Bomber room, without
air. in which arc human forms crowding and crouching, with the noise nf
chains, ami the lamentable and sinister
murmur of words uttered In a low-
voice. The criminals in this prison
arc perhaps none but people accused
of possessing a few douros which they
never even saw, and who are now
wailing in the horror of Ihis black boll
until the efforts of their parents or the
charity of some traveler like myself
shall help them by degrees to make
lip the sum of their ransom!
In presence of Biich misery as Ihis
one can understand how the ardent
imagination of these nations is
exalted by religion, and how they
seek in religion comfort, consolation

a bat. It was suggestive of bedbugs,
lice and various other unpleasant,
things to eat. No. ii, rare old eggs,
had a loud and suggestive smell, and
as the compradore would not swear
what they were pickled in, I took but
a precious small bit of this very expensive dish. Nos. (i and 7 I slightly
sampled and was about wading into
No. 8, rats in disguise, when f heard
one of the guests, who was familiar
with Chinese fare, hint the nature of
the dish, and I preferred to be so impolite as not to eat it. I concluded
that No. 9 was too rich for me. and
waited for the next course, which
looked quite tempting. 1 took a piece
of whito meat, when my Chinese host
remarked: "Why you no go down inside? That more better." f supposed
that there must be some delicacy
"down below," and, after a blind lish
with my chop sticks, got a grip on
something which proved, on bringing
to the surface, to be the alimentary
canal of the fowl. I then unconditionally passed this dish. No. 11 was
quite good, and 1 managed to do
something with that. No. 12
looked suspicious. I had decided
not to tackle tt, even before
I learned the nature of the dish. Tlio
next course was the best of the dinner, and we all partook heartily of it.
I will not vouch for the correctness of
thc name of No. 14, but it looked suspicious, and my friend assured mo that
it was genuine dog. bul. as it was not
very old, and had not yet acquired tlie
vices of experienced dogs, he thought i exteni from

comprehend these peoples attaching
themselves with fierce faith to tlieir
belief in God and iu a future life, and
being proof against the atheistic skepticism whicli hovers over the Western
world. They have need of God more
than tho citizens of Europe; they want
a Master and a Judge abovo their
earthly judges and masters.

a black-faced Hercules, who is perorating with a profusion of gestures and
much volubility as he points to a poor
fellow crouching at his side in n posture oi terror that does not even dare to
take the form of a prayer for mercy.
What can he hope for? The least possible number of lashes, lhe least number of days or of months to live in

College Men In Politics.
The people who say that college
men are at a discount in the world of
politics don't strike tlie bull's-oye of
truth. For instance, live out of the
eight members of the Cabinet—John
W. Noble, Secretary of the Interior;
Attorney-General Miller, Secretary of
War Proctor, Secretary of the Navy
Tracy and Secretary Blaine arc college
graduates. President Harrison himself is a college graduate. When it is
remembered, in addition, that fifteen
out of twenty-three Presidents, fourteen out of twenty-four Vice-Presidents, nineteen out of twenty-nine
Secretaries of State, sixteen out of
twenty-six Speakers of the House,
thirty out of forty Judges of the Supreme Court and fiveoutof thesix Chief
Justices have been college graduates,
it would seem that the American colleges give their students a sort ol
mortgago upon fat places in polities,
Perhaps all this is explained by the
fact that the brightest minds seek
a    college    education. —Philadelphia

melting wrought
iron with carbon iu clay crucible-..
This process is used to some extent
yet. In 1722 the direct process of
making steel by immersing malleable
iron in a bath of cast-iron was first
discovered by Reamur, and this was
really the beginning of the manufacture of steel in France. In the early
part of this century important improvements in this manufacture were
made by Mushat and Lucas, and the
eminent metallurgist Heath first successfully melted the ingredients of
cast steel on the open hearth of the
reverheratory furnace about 1839. In
18-lo ho patented his process, but it
was not regarded as successful until
practical conditions were furnished
for it by the invention of the Siemens
regenerative gas-furnace in 1862. As
it was shown by two chemists, the
brothers Martin, several years later,
that the addition of manganese at
a certain stage "of the manufacture was essontlnl to tho production
of practically malleable steel, the regenerative furnace process, us now
used, is known as the Siemens-Martin
process. The first patent of the Bessemer process was obtained in I86fi,
but it was not regarded as a complete
success until some years later, when
the improvement of adding splegel-
eisen, or white iron, had been made by
the Chemist Mushat. By the Bessemer
process, which is now the most generally used, twenty Ions of crude iron
have been converted into cast-steel in
twenty-three minutes. Sir Henry
Bessemer has received iu royally on
this process some $10,000,000. Tungsten
steel was made in (lermany in 18,'iH.
and in France In 1861 M, Fretny invented a process lor making steel by
bringing red-hot iron in contact wilh
carbonate of ammonia. In 1880 an
Knglish linn patented a process for
converting iron ore into fine steel by
lining the furnace with radial bricks
of inngnosian limestone and adding
eold basis material, phosphorus being
thereby removed. The manufacture
of steel has been carried to the highest
perfection In the United States, where
the most improved appliances are !
used. Thc output of American steel !
works is about 000,000 tons yearly.— i

Editor Courier
Victoria Weekly Times for June the 14th
is a stall' written article on the Single Tax
which is somewhat misleading, and as 1
am a firm believer in the justness and effl-
cicaciousncss of the tax I cannot let it
pass to the public without comment.
Thc author of the article begins by apologizing for his ignorance of the subject.
He believes the single tax movement to
be a mere fiscal change, ii not a spoliation of the rich by the poor. The Single
Tax movement, is a religious movement,
or it is nothing. Its glory and its sure
warrant of success are in tlie fact that it
is no cold-blooded scheme of mere fiscal
reform. We contend that thi'.: planet
was created not for tlie few that own it,
but for all the teeming millioiiB that live
on it, and we believe, the only way to
sident of theima'ie every man, woman and child a
of New York ' Part owni'*' thereof, is to tax the land according to its value, exclusive of improvements.
Now, Mr. Henry George, does nowhere,
as the Timet would have us believe in
Ins writing mention, that it is the only
reform necessary, but that it would open
the way for ' other reforms, which
would not be permanent nnd of little
avail. Your contemporary says the plan
sounds well and he likes it. Why then
ridicule it? He subscribes to it with his
heart but not with his head; forgetting
that emotion is tlie highest development
of reason. He states that the faculty of
acquisition is normal. True, but why is
land the most desirable acquisition?
Man seeks to gratify his desires with the
least exertion. And the acquisition
of land will nol alone gratify all my desire, bat will enable mc, as material progress goes on, to accumulate an immense
fortune out of other peoples' toil. For a
landlord, a man who does nothing with
hand or brain, or with bis capital is a
non-producer, a man that this world is
better off without. Land is under our
present svstem the only real security,
because a' value attaches to land through
thc growth of population and the general
progress ol" society, and as this growth is
continual, especially In a new country
like our own, it is only reasonable to expect a general increase in land values.
But bave you ever asked yourself bow
just it is for an individual tu appropriate
to himself a value created by the whole
community. Vou, having the advantage
of living in a new country, ought, above
anyone else, not to be ignorant of how-
rent is devouring the earnings ol* both
labor nnd capital. Consider what rent
is. it docs not spring out of the ground
nor does it fall down from the heavens,
it is the toll  charged  capital  and labor,
for the privilege ot applying themselves
to Nature's store bouse.

many caramels I took?" "Yes, Edith."

From our own Correspondent.
A proposed meeting at which the election of School Trustees for Oyster Bay
division was to have taken place, has
fallen through, owing to the lack oi interest displayed, not a solitary member of
the "Public" being present, hence Mr.
Porter will continue to hold his Trusteeship for another vear. We understand,
however, that the Trustees expressed
themselves as more than satisfied with
the progress of scholars during the year
just passed, and thank the teachers for
their unfailing courtesy ami assiduous attention to their duties.
We understand the Chemainus Sawmill will be "closed down" in a few days,
preparatory to undergoing extensive
alterations' and a complete overhauling.
Mr. Pcaliody, tlie acting Manager of
the Sawmill (Victoria Lumber & Maim-
t'acturing Co.), has gone to New Vork for
a holiday. He scarcely expects to be
amongst" as again until the fall of tlie
year. We till hope he may have a "good
time."
Mr. Sam (Mayor) Gray's sloopa dav or
two ago grounded on her anchor,   with
the result that she speedily lillcil.
Worship the Mayor" docs not anti
much trouble in putting bis pretty
craft into business-like trim again.
Mr. Gray also informed us that he intends giving a grand "bouse warning" on
the occasion of opening his line new
hotel at Lcwisville, which is fast approaching completion,
The Kev. Mr. Roberts reports unusually line crops. The yield of bay and clover on bis farm at Kuper Island is the
heaviest yet grown there. Root crops
also promise an abundant yield, though
in the earlier part of tbe year the frequent rains caused "tops" to be rather
too rank ; however tbe recent dry spell
has done much to improve tlie growth of
carrots, potatoes and swedes, though tbe
"fly" is somewhat troublesome to the
last named.
I (rouse are reported on all sides to be
unusually plentiful, a fact whicli warms
the heart of all in this neighborhood, for
it means large numbers of tourists.
Our popular voung stock raiser, Mr.
Sitwell,(Thetis Island) goes to Victoria in
a dny or two to meet his father and sister
on their wav ont from England. It is
understood "that Miss Sitwell niay become a permanent resident in this locality.
Wo understand that there is lo be a
species of impromptu athletic festival
held at Duncan's on Dominion Day. Mr.
Lomas (Indian Agent) is, we believe, the
prime mover in the alfair. A wind-up in
the evening with a dance is spoken of as
a certainty.
Messrs. McDonald and Fry have received a carload oi freight, including all
kinds of general merchandise, with which
they intend to open a store at Duncan's
almost immediately.
