PERSONAL.
At 3:30 yesterday morning Hon. Alex.
Ei B. Davie, Attorney-General and
Premier of British Columbia passed
peacefully away at his residence in Victoria, surrounded by his family and relatives. Deceaseil wiis born in Somersetshire, England, in 184(5, and came to this
country in 1802 with his father. He was
educated at Silcoate's school, near Wakefield Garkshire. He was articled as a
clerk in Drake it Jackson's office. He
was admitted ns an attorney in 1808, and
was culled to the bar of the province in
1873. He lived for a time in Cariboo
practicing at his profession. He was law
clerk for the legislative assembly from
1872 to 1874, and in 1875 was elected as a
member for Cariboo district, In May,
1877, he became u member of tbo executive council of the Elliott government,
and going before his constituents for reelection in August of the Bttme year he
waa defeated. In 1879 he (orme.i a law
partnership with Mr. Chas. E. Pooley,
present speaker of the local legislature,
which has existed up to the present
time, tbe firm enjoying u very lurge and
profitable practice. At the general election in 18S2, Mr. Davie was elected for
Lillooet, and when the late Mr. W.
Smith was culleal upon to form a ministry
in 1883 he Selected the deceased as his
attorney-general, u position he occupied
up to the day of his death. On 21st September, 1883, he was made Q, C. On
the death of the lute Mr. Smithe in
Mai'h, 1887, th. deceased succeeded that
gentleman as premier and president of
tlie council, and retained the confidence
of a large majority of the members of the
legislature.
During the fall of 1887, through close
application to the duties of bis position,
and of his business, his health failed,
and so serious n pbnse alial his illness
assume that in the following spring his
physician ordered a change of air. In
company with his wife he visiteil Barker-
villc ami in the bracing air of the mountains his health considerably improved,
and he returned to Victoria and again
engaged in work. Early in the winter,
however, his illness again strongly manifested itself, and Mr. anil Mrs. Davie
spent several months in California and
Colorado. Returning after the session of
1888, again largely benefitted by tbe
change, he remained in Victoria altiring
the fall and winter, aual was present during the session lust spring. His Bystem,
however, was fast succumbing to the
ravages of consumption, uud though he
spoke at length on several occasions, it
required great ctTort on his part. When
the Houso separated at the end of the
session, every member felt that they
were parting with their lirst minister for
the last time. Their fear bus proved
true. Mr. Davie daily attendeal to his
duties at his office after the session, hut
he gradually declined in health and wub
finally compelled to take to Ins bed, and
since then has gradually become weaker
until he pusseal uwav yesterday morning
to Ilis eternal reward, confidant that there
awaited him a better life in the world
beyond.
The deceased was married ou December 3rd, 1874, to Constance l.utigfonl.

Mr. Theodore Duvie, I". C, Mr. William
Davie and Mr. Horace Davie.
A      WAR.MMI.
The model   of death's approach arc various,   and   statistics  show   conclusively   that
more persons die from diseases of the Throat
anal Lungs than any other.      It   is probable
that everyone,  without  exception   icceives
vast   numbers  of Tubercle Germs into  the
system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life   anal  develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight   tickling
sensation in the throat anal if allowed to continue   their  ravages they extend to the lungs
producing  Consumption   and to  the  head,
causing Catarrh.    Now all is dangerous, and
if   allowed   to proceed   will in time cause
leath.      At  the onset  you must  act  with
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
\ttention is   dangerous   and   may   los.

A short time ago Mr. E. Quennell, of
the Cosmopolitan Meat Market, imported several sheep of good breed wbich he
allowed to run at large on tbe "green,"
but in counting over his flock one day he
missed a unit of the number and following out the Biblical idea he thought more
of the one lost sheep than of the "ninety
and nine" that remained. But all his
thinking would not restore the errant
mutton, and so he wisely held his peace
and was rewnrded by receiving an anonymous letter assuring him tbat a Chinaman, answering to the sobriquet of Jumbo,
who is employed by the Vancouver Coai
Company,could furnish him with information respecting the "lost sheep." Acting on this anonymous advice Mr. Quennell soon unearthed the thief who pleaded so hard for mercy that the tenderhearted butcher decided to let him off
this time if he promised not to do itagain.

August tbe 1st has passed and still
Nnnaimo rears itself on the shores of the
Gulf of Georgia, despite Mrs. Sampson's

posed here us a test medium, was kind
enough to foretell that the whole of the
eastern portion of Commercial street,
from the fireball to the Long Bridge,
would he destroyed by fire yesterday. It
is not probable that this prediction
troubled very many of our citizens and
those to whom it did cause some uneasiness would be proof against such char-
lutanisn in the future.

ANOTHER   PREMIER GONE:
In the death of Hon. A.  E. B.   Davh,
we have another exemplification of the j
old addoga that    "death  loves a  shining j
mark."    He avas a   wan  who  hrld  thei
confidence and esteem of all with whom
be came in contact; n man above reproach in private or public life, and one
whom  the province can illy afford to i
1 ise lioin  its council  chambers  al   this
particular time.     Duriu-r his leng career'
of public life, his most unforgiving political  enemy will admit lhat   his conduct
was always that of an honest, upright I
ami   conscientious  gentleman.    There
was no low.   pettyfoguing  political  jobbery connected  with any ofthe acts of I
Alex. E. B. Davis.   The country placed ,
implicit confidence iu him. and it ha. the j
satisfaction ol knowing that, so far us he
was  concerned,   that   confidence   was j
never violated.    He goes  to   his eternal I
rest honored by   a  grateful  country  for J
the noble acts of self-sacrifice rendered in ,
itt behalf, and well may  our people say, ]
with one accord,'Well done, thou good
and faithful servant."
which a few years ago were so bitter.
have become warmer from the glow ef
national good feeling, ami now are most
cordial in their expression-. Every occasion brings forth such expressions.
At the time of the Conemaugh flood and
the Seattle fire the London Times showed
the change in that public opinion by
passing beyond the simple expression
of sympathy to speak of "the indomitable
people." to direct admiration lo their
courage aud promptitude in repairing
the great ruin, and finally by uttering
this sentiment: "We cannot forget, and
it is satisfactory to ace that our countrymen have not forgotten, that the people of
America are our brethren and that sot-
rows and sufferings which make the
whole world kin are entitled to special
and active sympathy from ourselves."
These friendly expressions at the time
were noticed by the United States press
and reciprocated. Tliere seems to be
nothing that can or ought to mur these
relations of sympathy, or prevent their
growth in the future an in the past. It
is now hard lo say what changes time
may bring about between thu English-
speaking races of the two continents.
Bnt that there is u noticeable change by
whii'h expressions ef the most friendly
sympathy has taken the place of bitter
censure impute evident.

A   PASTORAL.
PROVINCIAL POLITICS.
Now thut the Hon. A. 15. B. Davik lias
been called lo a higher parliament, ihere
is some anxiety in political circles tai
know upon whose shoulders his mantle
will fall. There is no gainsaying the
fact that this vacancy iu the Executive
Council leaves the Government in a
rather embarrasaing position. Since the
general elections of three years ago, three
of the most prominent leaders of the
present Government have been called to
their long home. Premier Smith**, the
head and front of the party, was the first
to go. His ileath somewhat staggered
them, for he was a shrewd political
leader, and kept the party well together.
Then followed the demise of the Hon.
Robert Dins-hir, President ofthe Ex-
BCUtiveCouncil, a man of sound judgment.
and extensive political experience. And
now that their remaining mainstay,Hon,
All-x. Davik, has been taken from them,
we are not prepared to say, with any
degree of certainty, that the Government
as at present constituted, will hold together through another general election.
There are many uud serious deflections
from the party in Victoria,notably Mr.D.
W. HiGOiNs,wbo carries with him considerable influence. We also hear of numerous desertions on the Mainland, principally through Ihe shabby treatment of
certain districts of the Government.
These are potentious omens whicli point
the direction of popular sentiment, and
if the present rulers of the province wish
to obtain another lease of lif« they will
have to be extremely careful during the
next year.
Regarding tlie present vacancy in the
Executive Council, we presume the duties of Premier will fall upon the Hon.
John Rouson, Provincial Secretary, an
aBtute politician and withal a good pnblic
servant, but who has of late lost much of
his old-time popularity in New Westminster District, which place gave Hm his
seat. Without doubt Mr. TfltODORE
Davik, brother of the dead Premier, will
be chosen as Attorney-General, in which
event he will be required to go before the
electors of Victoria for endorsement, and
will probably be returned, unless some
very popular man is pitted against him
by the Opposition. It has been asserted
(with what amount of truth we cannot
say), that Mr. Theodore Davie has a
leaning toward joining Mr. Hion ss and
foining the nucleus of a tb'rd party, independent of both the present Government
and Opposition, in which case they would
be joined hy many supporters of the
party now in power, especially those
from the Mainland. However, in whatever Course political events muy shape
themselves in the near future, it is an acknowledged fact,   admitted   hy  its  own
supporter., that the preient Government
is in a shaky position, and will require
strong bracing up to carry it through the
next hustings.

Wild summer roses of faint perfume,
Tho white I sued lior, kept hushed, and uearkone*
TIU shades hm! darkened from Klosa to gloom
Bhe toucheal my shoulder aa tin fearful finger;
Sho said: "Wo linger; wo must not stay;
My flock's iu danger, my sheep will wander:
Behold them yonder—how far they .tray?"
I answered bolder: ".Nay, lot mo hear you.
And still be near you, and still adore;
No wolf nor stranger will touch one yearling:
All! slay, my dnrllng. a moment more."
She whispered, sighing: "There will he sorrow
Beyond to-morrow, if 1 lose today;
Hy fold unguarded, my Hook unfolded,
I shall be scolded, and sent away."
Said 1, replying. "If they do miss you.
They ought to kiss you wheu you get home;
And well rewarded by frlond and neighbor,
Should he the labor from which you come."
'They might remember," she answered meekly
"That lambs ore weakly and sheep are wild;
But, If they love me. It's none bo fervent;
I am a servant, and not a chltal"
Then each hot ember glowed quick within me,
And love did win me to savin* reply;
"Ah l do but prove me, and none shall blind you.
Mor fray, nor find you, until I die."
Bhe blushed and started, and stood awaiting,
As If debating in dreams divine;
But I did brave them—I told ber plainly
She doubted vainly; she must be mine
So we twin hearted, from all the valley
Did chase snd rally her nibbling ewes,
And homeward drove them, we two together,
Through blooming heather and gleaming dews
That simple duty from grace did lend her-
My Doris tender, my Doris true;
That I, her warder, did always blest her.
And often press her to take her due.
And now In beauty she Alls mr dwelling—
With love excelling, and undeflled;
And love doth guard her, both fast and fervent—
No more a servant, nor yet a child.

TUV, ENGLISH  SPEAKING RUE
The recent speech delivered in   Massa-:
chusetts by General Buttlei, in which he
expressed tbe idea that the English speaking races of the world should  stand  together as tbe promoters of peace and the '
uncompromising opponents of  war,  has
elicited a gieat ileal  of favorable comment, and is acknowledged a step in advance ol the line of pnblic opinion  belli
in tbe United Slates and Bngland.   British statesmen still have their eyes upon
continental  alliances,   and continue to
build   up their  navies smi   consolidate
their insular strength that they may continue   to play an Imperial  part   in the
affairs of the world. Dnitoal States states-
men still continue to cling lo the spirit of
the Munroe doctrine, and view with suspicion European entanglements and even
go slight an entanglement us the relations
assumed by the United States to Samoa.
Yet in spite of all this, it is not difficult:
to see that the relations of the United
States to England are growing closer at a :
rate that might give ground even for the ,
coolest judgment to predict the condition
of friendship and alliance portrayed so
glowingly by Gen.  Butler.    Since the J
clese of the civil war Americans and the"
British people have come to  know each '
other better and to take a greater inter-
eat in each other's affairs, and this mutual  understanding and   interest  seems
to increase.    The press of both nations,

STANLEY'S WRATH.
SOME   EXPERIENCES   OF   THE   HIGH
SPIRITED    EXPLORER.
A   DAY    IN   WINTER.
Scheming Esquimaux.
1 havo had a great deal of experience In
whaling fn tho Northern seas, and, asa result,
I nover credit any stories as to what tho Esquimaux, or natives, havo seen. They* can
seo anything that anybody wants thorn to see.
and will do so for a small quantity of broad
or provisions. Thoy aro frequently employed
on whaling vessels, being picked up at the bo-
ginning of tho season aud dropped whon tho
vessels aro returning, or, if tho weather is too
severo, carried on t*o San Francisco and returned at tbe beginning of tho nest season.
Iu this way many of them have learned to
speak English, but iu tweuty-two seasons' ex-
t*t*rienco in whaling I havo nover found it to
do them any good. Ouo instance as to their
reliability will bo sufficient. I had one of
four vessels caught in tho ice, nud I had
to work my way luO miles through
It. Mino was tho only boat that
got through, though 1 took the crow off of
one of the others and tho crow of another
found their way to safety aud were picked
up. Tho fourth boat, however, has never
been heard of, nor has any of her crew. Tho
next season we took a large amount of pro
visions, and wero on tho lookout for any of
the crew or the boat. Wo wero boarded by
un InteUigent native, who told us of three
ships off a point and a-way into tho ice. There
were men on two of them, while the other
was uninhabited. The story was told in n
remarkably straight manner- and impressed
us with its truth. One of our ships, a
steamer, was loaded up and seat off on the
perilous trip, whilo the native was sent away
rejoicing with a heavy load of Oread provisions. Tho story, though, was found to be a
myth. Tho native had been carried to San
Francisco, had there Inaatl of the loss of the
ships, and had mado liis story to (ll, even to
the point of having ono of the ships abandoned, as we had taken her crew off.—Ocean
Captain In GIobo-Demoerat.
RUfttlJglltS*
In tho summer tho very old ami tho very
young, with other feeble persons, wero employed in cutting rushes, the best kind for
condlo making being tho common soft juu-
cus conglomerate. Theso grow best by
river banks ond iu marshy pastures. The
longest and plumpest were selected and deprived of tho outer green covering, a pTOCeef
facilitated by. lirst steeping them in water.
Ono very narrow strip alono was left from
top to bottom ns a support for tho pith, or
two if the dip was intended for a night light,
when it burned slowly and with a feebla
flame. After being peeled the,'rushes were
bleached on tho grass and then dried in the
sun.
Six pounds of grease were allowed to n
pound of rushes; thoso last required to cool
between each immersion in tho boiling fat,
and were dipped again and again uutil of
sufficient size. Whero bees wero kept, a smali
quantity of wax was added to tho tallow, the
candles ocquiring greater consistency thereby,
but mutton fat was considered to answer the
samo purpose. Tho rushlights thus formed
burned from half an hour to forty minutes ou
on average. A curiously shaped candlesti-.it
was used to hold them, and similar ones ar*
still employed for the purpose by somo of th«
Connaugbt peasants. Machine made candles,
however, aro now so cheap, and parafflne oij
is in such general uso, that only in the remotest districts does one seo a 'home made
rushlight.--Blackwood's Magazine.
A Beautiful Itofinltlon.
A dear child called Mary Cooper had road
her ullotted pieco with such appropriate emphasis and such sympathy of expression thai
tho inspector said to her in his kind, sincere
manner; "That was really beautiful, my
child! And now," ho added, "if you can tell
me tho meaning of that word'turf I shall
give you my very best mark." Meanings of
words aro mountains of difficulty to some
children, and tho tears almost started to
Mary's eyes because she realized that the In*
spector had chanced to drop on a word
whose meaning sho had not lately studied.
Poor child I I wonder how often she
had frolicked and tripped over nature's emerald carpeting I Possibly nover! But Mary
had plenty of determination; she felt that
her very life almost depended on giving an
answer; and sho lost uo time in exercising
her littlo brain to tho utmost for some kind
of a definition; and, just as tho inspector
was saying, "Well, never mind, child, I will
pass on," sho eagerly exclaimed: "Turf, sir,
ls grass and clean dirt stuck together by
God." "A most excellent definition," said
the inspector; "in fact the answer I looked
for was not nearly so precise as that. Vou
havo gained my highest mark."—Longman'i
Magazine
Tho Gentle Japanese.
As illustrating his claim that tho Japanese
aro a more civilized people than tho Americans, a gentleman at a recent Boston diuner
tablo cited Professor Morso's statement that if,
tn a Japanese city, ono picks up a stono to throw
at a dog, tho dog does not run, becauso he \n»
nevor had n stone thrown at him and does uot
know what tho action means. "Manifestly,"
comments tho Boston Transcript, "if 6uch a
state of universal gentleness and kindness
prevails In Japan that uot oven a stono ii
thrown at u dog by a boy, tho fact is to In
taken as an excellent Item of ovldenco in mak*
ing out a case of high civilization for the
Japanese, And It is a significant fact that it
was reserve-.! for our own European-American
civilization to introduce tho completest reiluo
inenta of cruelty to animals,"—Detroit Fret
Press.
Origin of » Familiar Phrase.
. That familiar phrase in tho Episcopal burial
aervice, "In the midst of life wo aro in death,"
is derived from a Latin antiphon, composed
by Notken, a monk of St. Gall, in Oil, while
watching somo workmen building abridge at
Martin's Bruecko, in peril of their lives.—St.
Louis Kenublic.

Tho following facts concerning Henry
II.  Stanley have never been  in print.
, They were given to me by William Bmd-
; ford, tho  tnarfhe artist and  Arctic explorer.
In the year 187:1 Mr. Bradford, returned from liis Greenland explorations,
waa in London publishing his sumptuous
volume on "The Arctic Regions." It
waa brought out under the patronage of
. Queen Victoria at $125 per copy. At
this time ho met Stanley, who was in n
towering rage.
'•He waa just  back," said  the artist,
"from rinding Livingstone, anil waa now
very angry at the cavalier way in which
ho had been treated about publishing hia
book through   Murray     It seema that
Jolin Murray wa3 away, and tho partner
i present bad received  Stanley quito nonchalantly, and said he waa uot quite sum
whether they coulal publish his book or
| not, and. anyway, nothing could bo dono
i about it  until  Mr. Murray's return.    I
! said to  him, 'Mr. Stanley, are you par-
I ticular   to   havo   Murray publish   your
book:'   'No.'   'Well, I can tell you of
1 somo very good publishers, who, I think,
ivoiild bo glad to publish it, and that is
! lhe firm of Sampson, Low & Co.   They
| aro publishing my  book, and, I think,
i woulal be glad to get hold of yours.    If
j you wish, 1 will seo them about it.'    'Do
I so, Mr. Bradford; I'll  bo glad to have
you.'
A LIBERAL PUBLISHER.
"So I went down and saw Mr. Marston, of the firm, and said to him, 'Mr.
Marston,   would  you  like  to   publish
I Stanley's new  book on  Africa?'   'Yes,
I sir, indeed  wo  would;   but   I   thought
| Murray avas going to have it.'   'No, 1
guess not.    Would you like to seo Mr.
j Stanley?'   'Certainly,  sir.'   'Very well,
I I'll bring him down this afternoon.'   As
I I was goiug out ho said. 'Mr. Bradford,
Jo you suppose that Mr, Stanley is ready
j to consialer an  offer for his book?'   'I
i lliink so, sir.'
"I took Stanley down to see them, and
i Mr. Marston asked him if ho was prepared to consider an offer then and there
•Yes, sir.' 'Well, Mr. Stanley, wo will
give you $10,000 for it, and a liberal
share of tho profits.'
" 'I'll do it,1 said Stanley. And a happier man you've seldom seen. 'Now,
Mr. Stanley,' said Mr, Marston, 'when
can you begin to furnish us copy?' 'Tomorrow morning, sir, and overy day
thereafter till It's done.' 'Just one word
more, Mr. Stanley. Will you please say
nothing about this for four weeks? I've
a special reason for asking.' 'Yes, sir;
that suits me,' said Stanley. And so
Ihe bargain waa closed, and Sampson
Low & Marston havo been Stanley's
publishers ever since.
"A few weeks later Stanley went in
to seo John Murray, and tho following
conversation occurred: 'Mr Murray, I've
como to seo about your publishing my
book. Do you wish to?' 'Yes, I think
that wo may bo ablo to, Mr. Stanley.
| But wo cannot afford to givo you much
for it, .aa it is a kind of experiment. But
we'll publish it, Mr. Stanley.'
" 'No you won't,' broko in Stanley,
with an oath, and, turning on his heel,
left tho great English publisher astounded
at the young African explorer's audacity.
EASY CHAIR GEOGRAPHERS.
"On another occasion," says Mr. Bradford, "I was sitting at a great banquet
of the British association at Brighton.
It was In tho evening after the 'African
afternoon,' so called. Stanley had been
down for a speech lato iu the afternoon,
after several English geographers had
spoken. But I noticed during the second
speech, by Mr. C. U. Markbani, of the
Royal Geographical society, that Stanley's wrath was rising. Tho speaker, in
alluding to Livingstone, had just said a
word reflecting upon him. As soon as
Markham was dono, Stanley, at two
bounds, was in the center of the platform, and leaning forward and stretcnlrjg
out his forefinger with concentrated scorn
towardMarkham, began: 'You easy chair
geographers, sitting on your cushioned
velvet carpets, what do you know about
it? Livingstone, after a long, arduous,
perilous march, says: "I think I have
found the sources of tho Nile." But you,
from tho seclusion of your libraries, declare: "Wo know that he has not."
What right havo you to decide such a
question?' And then ho gavo it to them
hot. And yet in fifteen minutes ho had
them all, ladies and gentlemen, on their
feet crying, 'Hear, hear, heart' The
Baroness Burdett-Coutts waved her
handkerchief, and oven the Emperor
Napoleon, who was present with the
Empress Eugenic, arose and handed
Stanloy their card. I tell you, Stanley
waa tlio most scathing man I ever listened to when ho was mad over Living-
stono.
"So, in tho ovening, before going to
tho banquet, I said to him: 'Now, Stanloy, keep your temper. Don't disgrace
yourself. Don't say a word to-night.'
For I knew this very Markham was going to preside. Well, Stanley promised
that ho wouldn't say a; word. But thoy
placed him at Markham's right hand. I
sat across tho table whero I could seo
him. Pretty soon I noticed that he and
Markham wero talking earnestly. Then
tho bulldog look camo Into Stanley'!
face. And then ho jumped up and off ho
went.
"It seemed that Markham had urged
him to speak, but Stanley had declined,
when the following conversation ensued;
'But, Mr. Stanley, you must speak, That
is tho purpose for which they Invited
you hero.' 'Is that the reason thoy invited ma here?' 'Certainly, Mr. Stanley;
we expect you to favor us with a speech.'
'Well, I won't. But' — tluiisting his
hand deep into his pocket—'hero's a
guinea for my dinner.' And off he
stalked in a towering rage."—Rev. F. H.

Nothing ii mow pitiful than theemblemi
of mourning of the very poor. On one sidi
of the doorway of one of the most poverty
striekeu and repellant tenement houses a Int
of white mourning fluttered in the bittei
winter air. It was cheap mourning, and
therefore more mournful than any other. .
Composed of a rosette of coarse muslin, witb
n painfully small knot of tlio poorest white
satin ribbon, it told its story of destitution
more forcibly than language could possibly
portray it. The ball was a mass of snow and
ice. Its door stood wide open, aud no tunnel
CODld bo colder. Every window in the miserable building was dark and dirty as a coal
in!uc Yet, within these hideous walls human
beings lived, Buffered and died. Who could
help looking upon that pathetic bit of mourning and keep from saying: "It is well wltb ,
the child. Ho will walk in no evil ways; he1
will kuow no evil thought: ho will do no evil <
deed."—New York Press *'Every Day Talk."
Tbe Efcbinio'A Mccbanlcal Ingenuity.
In the matter of mechanical ability, for
instance, examine the tool box of an Eskimo .
: when he considers it well furnished, and what
does it contain? A well worn file, au indiffer-
j ent saw, a few rusty nails, a cheap penknife.
{ ,tnd a  very  inferior  sheath knife.   What'
j would the ordinary mechanic of civilization {
. accomplish witb such implements as thesel j
| Yet witb these poor tools the Eskimo wii]!
repair the locks of their guns, make harpoons |
and spears, put together tbeir kayaks and !
umiaks, and manufacture all sorts of things;
out of walrus ivory.    They will take the I
blade out of one penknife, alter it so as to be '
of suitable size, and place it in another handle,
drilling with a broken needle tho hole for tha '
pin ou which the blade turns, having first by [
means of fire carefully untempered tho part i
of  the blade to be drilled.—J. Macdonald t
Oxley in American Magazine.
A Chinese Mining Camp.
Thc largest Chinese mining camp In tht I
northwest is at Warren, I. T. Hundreds of
Chinese have been at work there for several
years, and each year from fifty to seventy-
five go back to China witb from $2,000 to
$5,000, a fortune for them. Most Chinese
miners work over old mines, and are very expert at cleaning up every particle Of gold;
but at Warren they are on new ground, and
their careful system results in large yields.—

Neither Posters Nor Dodger*.
One of the shrewdest and most successful
of advertisers is John Wanamaker, the great
Philadelphia merchant, who accounts for his
success In tbis way: "I nevor In my life used
such a thing as a poster, a dodger or a hand
bill. My plan for fifteen years has been to
buy so much space in a newspaper, and fill
it up with what I wanted. I would not give
an advertisement in a newspaper, even of but
400 circulation, for 5,000 dodgers.—New Orleans Times-Democrat.
A Psychical Incident.
A well known artist of Vhls city tells a
story which will be of interest to any one
fond of psychical investigations. He was
sitting in his sleeping chamber late at night
reading a French novel, when his wife, who
had retired some hours before, suddenly
awoke and related a dream which she had
just had. The dream was an exact counterpart—even to details—of the plot of the
novel, which tho lady had never read.—New
York Evening World.
Food for Reflection.
There is plenty of food for reflection in tbe
fact that five-sevenths of the prisoners in
Sing Sing prison are 30 years of age or less,
If the influences surrounding them were such
as to reform instead of to harden, there
would be a good chance of turning them into
useful citizens. The probabilities now are
that most of them will pursue criminal
careers for the rest of their Uvea.—Now York
Tribune.      	
Novel Way of Advertising.
A passenger and ticket agent of a Florida
railroad, at Jacksonville, Fla., has a novel i
way of advertising bis line. He has a rack
made of wire, filled with the choicest
oranges, and on each orange is stamped an
advertisement. When any one comes into
his ticket office seeking information about
his line, especially if he is from the north, he
ts invited to take an orange or two.—Chicago
Herald.       	
A Singular Error.
A singular error is the use of the word
"cocoanut" which, botanical authorities
urge, should be "coconut." The wrong
spelling is charged upon Dr. Johnson, wbo
is said to have confused the "coconut" with
"cocoa,''which is the product of the cacao
tree.— Arkansaw Traveler.

Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Deai
Sir:--We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindustan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear uf its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
arc happy to (.ay, arc now relegated tn the
native bazaars, and judging from their salcl
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instance-!
infinitum of the extraordinary eflicacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrna-,
tnd 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Crampts,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a*, general Sedative, that have oecarred
und-.'our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhrea, and eves if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, wc
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used r.ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction tbat it is decidedly thc best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj]
fession and the public, as we are ofthe I
opinion tnat the substitution of aay other flnfinTTITTlflrnifll Rtrpfit
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE , U U UU1 m ° l U ldl ^Teei

The masculine summer hat has always
been a failure. Even the ventilated hats
are not cool. A really comfortable hat
should not touch the head at all, but
should be supported from the shoulders,
leaving the head bare to the breezes and
always in the shaale. This new hat has
not yet been invented, and hald-heiialcd
men may raise a cry against it, hut it
must come.

lip to a late hour last night the
Alberni mail carrier had failed to put in
au appearance owing, it is  supposed,   to
the bad stats ot the roads occasioned by
the hush fires which are very prevalent
at present. Thc mail carrier ought to
have arrived on Wednesday afternooa
and bis non appearance has caused considerable uneasiness in the city as the
Alberni road is said lo be iu a very dangerous condition owing to burning trees
falling across it.

What might have been a serious accident occurred last night on I'rideat'x
street bridge. It seems that a youngster
named TbomaB Thompson, aged ahout
10 years, was attempting to do the Blon-
din act on the handrail of Prideaux street
bridge, and was rather unsuccessful as
his foot slipped, precipitating him te the
bottom of the ravine, a distance of ahout
-.'0 feet. He was picked up and carried
home where it was ascertained that no
bones were broken. Tommy lias quit
the c'r-cus business for a time".

A   I'lr.s.nl   Trip.
The sloop Rover cleared yesterday
morning ahout S o'clock for a pleasure
and prospecting trip north. The party
consisted of only four persons, J. Norton,
X. Harinan. Leslie Jones and Pierre
Hovelaque. They intend to be
absent about two months, but
will prolong the trip if necessary. They
will first visit tbe Seychelle Islands and
then cruise up the Gulf to Bute Inlet,
where bears are reported to exist in great
numbers. Failing in the capture of
bruin at this place, thc Rover will he
steered for points north ol Alert Bay and
thence to the Queen Charlotte Islands.
The boat is well provisioned and possesses
an armament that should strike terror
into the hearts of even the redoubtable
"grizzly" wbo will in his turn he hunted
on the mountains of the Mainland. The
crew were busily engaged yesterday
morning before starting in throwing ballast overboard to make room for cartridges, which, in itself, is a guarantee
that the partv is sufficiently well protected.

A Haul of nathera.
The community has lately been disturbed in its mind over the disgusting
scenes that have been enacted by men
bathing in close proximity to the boat
houses and wharves, but yesterday the
City Constable made a successful haul of
these yonng men, raking in seven, and
they have been requested to appear before
themagistrates to-day to answer to the
charge of indecent exposure. The Constable's attention was alrawn to the occurrence yesterday by seeing one man,
aboua 20 yenrs of age, clothed only In an
assumed "air of modesty, tripping lightly
across Cameron Island, only a few yards
from the boat houses. Ihe custodian of
the peace jumped into a boat and rowed
over to the Island, capturing the major
porl ion of the crowd.
