It is our sad duty to chronicle another
of those sad drowning accidents that recur with fatal precision with the advent
of summer.     Yesterday four young men
ot this city,  named Harry Lester,  Herbert   Green.   J.    Davis    and    William
Cooper went for a sail In the Bay.   They
hired a capacious lioat of Messrs. Foreman & Campbell, and one of them, Hei-
bert Green,  hail frequently  procured a
boat from the same firm.   The morning
was a very line one for sailing, as the
wind   was off the land,     liefore   they
startetl Mr. Foreman warned tbem to be
careful, as the weather was very uncertain, the wind coming in pufls and then
dying down to a complete calm.  As tbey
were leaving the harbor with the sail set,
it suddenly jibed, and Mr. Foreman again
shouted to them  to look out.    He afterwards followed them a short way in a
boat, but saw  everything was ull  right
aud they were sailing with a fair wind.
That was the last seen  by anyone on
shore   of   Herbert  Green" and   Harry
Lester.   The boRt Bped along at a good
rate,   till   they   got  outside   Protection
Island, jwhen the wind died down to a dead
calm.   Suddenly a gust of wind struck
the sail, causing it to jibe, and upset the
boat.    Harry   Lester was thrown clear
off the craft altogether, and Green, who
was an expert swimmer,   immediately
weat to his rescue; but before he could
catch hold of him, Lester sunk ami did
not riBe again.     The other two men,
Davis and Cooper, clung onto the edge of
the lioat, which was thrown on its side
and only partially   submerged.   Green
retained to the boat after Ids fruitless attempt to save his friend, and for a short
time also clung to the boat; but thought
that the boat would not   support  the
three long, so struck out for Protection
Island, which was about a mile distant.
He throw off his coat and vest while in
the water.   Green soon discovered that,
despite his abilities as a swimmer, he
could not reach Protection Island with
his heavy clinging clothes on; so returned
to the boat. Things now began to assume
a serious aspect to tbe three survivors of
the mishap.    The   lioat   again   showed
signs of sinking with its added burden,
when Green, in a most heroic manner,
said, "Boys, she won't save the three ol
us,  I'll   try   and   reach that buoy out
there;" at the same time pointing to a
black object   in   the   water.    He then
startetl out on his perilous swim of over
half a mile, and reached the object referred to, which turned out to be a log.
His companions, who were watching him
anxiously, in the hopes of seeing him get
onto the supposed buoy and make signals
of distress, saw   him make several ineffectual efforts to climb onto it, as the log
rolled around at every attempt.   Ureen
then finding tliat he could not stay there,
turned round and again  made for Ihe
partially  submerged   lioat;  but ere he
reached it, his companions to tlieir dismay, saw him throw up bis  bands and
sink.   The case of the   remaining two
was   now   getting   desperate,   ns their
chances of being seen by any  passing
craft was small; and their bodies were
only slightly above tho water, and at
every roll of the boat the waves broke
over   them.    At this  juncture  one of
them   spied a canoe tilled with Indians
coming from the Mainland, nnd having
a hat with a colored lining he waved it in
the air; and was fortunately seen.   The
Indians  paddled quickly to Protection
Islnnd, landed tlieir women, and returned
for the two survivors of the catastrophe.
Tbey took them into the canoe and towing ' them safelv  to Protection  Island..|
The kloochmen, in the meantime, had
built a fire, at which the two rescued
white   men, J.  Davis and  VV, Cooper,
dried their clothing before, being brought
to this city.   Tbe names of the Indians
have not as yet been ascertained,  but
Messrs. Davis aad Cooper are most warm
in praise of their conduct anil kindness
to them.   They intend to visit them today and recompense them ns much as
lies in their power.
The drowned men Herbert Green, aged
28, and Harry Lester, aged 23, were both
members of the Methodist Church Choir,
and were very much likctl liy their fellow
miners. The bodies were not recovered,
and as the tide runs very fast in that particular part of the gulf, it is rather improbable tbnt tbey ever nill lie. (Jreen
was n native of London, England, and
Lester was a native of Cumberland, England. They were both single, though
Lester's family is staying in  Nanaimo.

A     VVAKM.MJ.
Thc modes of death's approach arc 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 antl is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in thc throat and 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. Al thc onset you mast act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
Ittention is dangerous and may los< ; a
lite. As soon as you feel that s.mc.i.ing 1
wrong w|th your Throat, Lungs ui Nostr.ls
obtain a bottle of l'.oschee's German Syrup.
It will give you immediate relief:

the Arctic regions in order to make soo-
ogical researches.

IN
Holloway's Pills & Ointment
THIS INCOMPARABLE MEDICINE
has secured for itself an imperishable
fame throughout the world for the alleviation
and cure of most diseases to which humanity
is heir.
THE    PILLS
The position taken by the Ptess of San
Francisco, us given in our telegraphic
news of yesterday, is surely 11 most inadmissible one.   If this is not unadulterated bluster, we should like to knov what
is: "Tbe Esquimall fortifications are intended for  service against the  United
States.   It is 11 good time, now that we
have a cash surplus in the treasury, and
that there are  men   in our great eities,
who would like no better employment
than enlisting for a war, to ask our ally
and neighbor whether   these works at
Esquimau are not really intended lo do
us a mischief some day: and if tbey are,
whether wise foresight does not require
tbat we should protest against their further construction."   Thus, the most influential—because tbe most widely read
—portion of the Press of the Pacific coast.
There is something almost ridiculous, in
the thought that our fortifications at Ksquimalt are a standing menace, either to
the United States, or any other country.
If Bucb "buncombe" as this was held to
be sound   and   logical   reasoning,  then
would most of the great Powers of the
earth have a casus belli aaainst  Great
Britain.    Spain  would   threaten   war,
with immeasurably greater reason in ber
favor for bo doing, unless we relaxed our
iron grip on Gibraltar.  Italy would bonsl
—not of surplus millions in her treasury
vaults certainly—but of, say—her enormous standing army, and the splendid
equipment of her comparatively small,
though select navy, unless we made her
a present of Malta.   The power which
wields the most perfect military machine
which  the world  lias  ever seen—tier-
many—Bhe too with  more reason than
has the United States—might argue that
our retention of Heligoland was a "standing menace" to ber, inasmuch as it practically commands the mouth of the Kibe,
and would be a serious obstacle to tbe
movement of hostile ships seeking the
waters of the Baltic.   Numbers of other
instances occur to us, but It is hardly
necessary for our purpose to quote more
than  we have already cited.   The San
Francisco Press fails to remember thai
Great Britain's interests lie scattered all
over   the  world    The   interests of  the
United   States   lie  almost   exclusively
in North America.   Hence Hritish ships
must  have  n base of operations with
coaling stations at baud, otherwise her
enemies   might   easily    wound    her—
Achilles- like—in   ber vulnerable  heel.
We do not think   that   il   is seriously
worth  while discussing the subject at
greater length, as especially when we reflect that it is but some few months ago
that a portion of the New Vork press appealed to Great Britain for assistance, in
the event of trouble arising  wilb  I lermany in reference to the Samoan affair,
Those of us also who have resided on this
coast during the last six or eight yenrs,
will remember the wild scare which shot
through the City of San Francisco, when
trouble was anticipated  wilb Chili.    A
power by no means to be despised by a
nation which prefers to count its millions
stored safely away in the treasury vaults,
rather  than put them   Into tbe costly
and experimental ironclads of the present.
day.   We would not be misunderstood
upon    this   matter—we   have   not   the
slightest fear of serious trouble occurring
between the United States,  and  Great
Britain, either upon this or any other subject.   We have a common ancestry, common literature, common traditions, common law, and fortunately  lor England a
common language   When  we consider
all this, we feel well assured that in the
ages yet to follow, be of Great  Britain,
will stand shoulder to shoulder  with he
of the Great American Republic, where
outsiders ure concerned; though   tbey
will go  on   to the end of tbe chapter,
squabbling and bickering between themselves,   over  wbnt   nre   comparatively
trifles; just  ns  near  relations  who  frequently quarrel among themselves, will
yet speedily "flop," if an outsider joins
in the affray.   We suppose we must seek
the explanation in the fact lhal "blood
is thicker than water."    We repeat then
—tbe San Francisco press notwithstanding—that in our opinion the day  is  far
off in the "dim anddislantfuture"when
Great   liritain nnd the   United  Stales,
shall each "cry havoc! and let  loose  the
dogs of war" against each other.

by special train and special Bteamer, and
now hiring a mansion in a fashionable

Laboucbere, "docs he gel tbe cash to do

senior member for Northampton, who
spent many years In I he Northwnst Territories, as tbey were then, of the United

In a recently published work on Algiers the writer refers to tbe ravages of
locusts iii tbat colony, and to the efforts
that are being made to abate I his scourge.
He says that three limes in three years
their propagation hsB been favored by it-
disastrous drought. In 1888 all efforts
seemed of no avail to stem the enormous
floods which moved forward with irresistible force, destroying all vegetation in
their progress over an urea of about 750,-
000 acres, containing a population of 700,-
000 souls. The estimated amount of loss
caused by this disaster is 24,880,OOOL, or
nbout three times as much as during
1887. The unfortunate colonists saw the
labors of years obliterated, while thousands Of Arabs found themselves without
the means of existence, and bail to sell
their cattle for any sum that could be obtained, as every scrap of pasturage in
their country was consumed. Hitherto
the Government of the colony have been
groping in Ibe dark in a vain endeavor to
destroy the locusts, being ignorant ol
their habits, of their natural history, and
even of the regions whence they come,
In a recent report of thc American
Consfil-General at, Metamoras, referring
to a possible exodus of Mormons from
Utah to Mexico, slates thai many colonies bave been sent down Into New Mexico nnd Arizona nnd lately into old Mexico, and the lands for colonizing purposes
have been carefully exmninetl in Sonorn
and Chihuahua, and considerable progress lias been made towards establishing
strong colonies there. This having been
commented on by Ibe Mexican Press, the
Mormon agent in Mexico lias written to
one of the papers denying thai the
"Church in Utah" is making any effort
to increase the colonies in Mexico, and
giving the number of families there as
150 und the lands already purchased a*-
200,00il acres in extent, instead of 4,000,-
000 acres ns reported. "I am satisfied,
however," says the Consul, "that there
is now and lias been for over two years a
very strong effort by men who stand very
close to and are of the 'Church' to buy
lands and got, good concessions in Mex
ico. I believe tbey are likely to succeed.
nnd that within a few years tbey will

might answer limply, "Oul." (Yes.) But

and would receive the countersign, "Ella

FromtEe tune ot his departure Napoleon
was toasted as Corp. or Gen. Violet Bis
friends wore rings and ribbonsof violet color.
A popular design was a group of violets so
drawn that a practiced eye could discover in
two large ones the likenesses of Napoleon and
Marie Louise, while a smaller one displayed
the features of their son, "tbe King of Roma"
After the battle of Waterloo the wearing of
violets was considered treasonable. It has
bean well said of the flower that, "springing
In obscurity, and retaining Its perfume in
death, It was a wonderful emblem of him
who rose from the valleys of Corsica to the
throne of the golden lilies, and whose name
has been a spell of power long after he ceased
tu breathe the air of earth."
THI HOTOKB AND TBX CORDrLOWKB.
The fondness of tbe late Emperor William
of Germany for the blue cornflower has
caused It to bo commonly known by tbe
name of Kalserblunw (tho Emperor's flower).
It was associated with tender memories ot his
noble mother, Louisa of Prussia. Her
enemy. Napoleon, expressed hut opinion of
ber taunts when be characterised her as "the
only man in the family," and said on hearing
the news of her death t "Tbe King of
Prussia has lost ills beat minister." When
fleeing to Meinel with her children after the
battle of Jena, an accident to the carriage
obliged tham to wait awhile by the roadside
To divert the tired and hungry children from
f thsir discomfort, she set them

ni never forgot, and that
lday when he humbled the power
* ry from wblclt she had endured
sc muoh i and the old monarch In the glories
of bit triumph was heard to murmur: "My
mother, thou art avenged."
Long ago. wben surnames were rare and
changing, the haughty family of Plantagenet
took then* name from the broom, plante-de-
genet It Is said that one of the early counts
ef Anjou did penance by receiving a severe
flagellation, and adopted for his badge the
broom plant frqm which tho whips were
made, that thus he might be ever reminded
of tbe punishment which is sure to follow sin.
We have the choice of adopting a more pleasant story—that Geoffrey, of Anjou, the husband of "Dame Maud," daughter ot Henry
I of Kngland, when climbing a steep pass
was much impressed by the sight ot the
broom plants clinging to tho stones. "See,"
cried he, "that golden flowered plant, so
firmly rooted among the rooks, and giving
support to ihe soul Tbat humblo flower
shall henceforth be my cognisance."

THE    WISDOM    OF    THE   MULE.
Scotland's national flower, the thistle, bears
tbe proud motto whoso truth ber foes have
often proved, Nemo me impune lacesslt (No
one injures me with Impunity). Tradition
tells us the emblem was chosen In memory of
Its service long ago during an invasion of the
Danes. They had planned a night attack
and as they stole in the darkness toward the
Scottish camp one of tbem Inadvertently
ata|ned upon a thistle. Losing command of
sVlmtelf, oe uttered a cry of pain. This
aroused toe sleeping Soots, wbo sprung to
arms and routed tbe enemy.

Is it love tbat makes me think of tliee
through all the sunless day,
Wherever I may chaoce to be,
And thou—afar away!
A thousand times I told my heart
That truly love was not;
A thousand times the words came back
And thee with them they brought
Where thou art now 1 cannot tell—
We may be far apart,
Or near, but wheresoe'er thou be,
Thou'rt ever In my heart.
Mayhap of me thou thickest not,
Nor ever breathe my name,
Yet every hour of day and night,
Thou tlirlllest me the same.
Perchance 'tls best 1 see thee not;
Thou mayst be proud and cold.
For In thy ears gay cavaliers
May honeyed vows have told.
O pride would spoil the winsome face
That was so dear to me;
So In my heart 1 hold thee still
As thou wert wout to be.

A Diver's Experience.
In searching for the bodies ot drowned
persons, I have experienced some great shocks
from very simple occurrences, perhaps the
most notable of which was at tho St, Charles
bridge disaster. Among tho unfortut/ates
bod been a tramp who had gone down with
the wreck. I thought I had all the bodies
out, and hod been blasting for about two
weeks, when, while leaning over tho side of
a small boat, a white, ghastly, and nearly
nude corpse shot right up In the air, somo
feet clear of the water, grazing my face as It
passed. At first I thought it an apparition.
So sudden and unexpected did the horrid
thing burst on my sight that it completely
unnerved me, and for days I was prostruted.
The. explanation was simple. Tbe body had
been pinned down until decomposition had
generated gases and mado the corpse so light
that It naturally longed to get out of the
water, until the specific gravity had been
rendered so much less than that of tho sur
rounding element, that the longing hod been
Intensified to a degroe that overcame the retaining Influence, and it got free and shot
upwards. Bodies gain a remarkable force by
continued expansion. I bave known them to
bring up an amount of sand and mud almost
beyond belief.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Atomic Nature.
Nature works everywhere with an Infinite
number of small magnitudes which can only
be perceived by our obtuse organs of sense,
wben In Infinite masses. For example, a
granule of common salt that wo are hardly
able to taste, contains myriads of groups of
atoms Invisible to mortal eyes. Three mille
grammes, thirteen sixty-fifths of a grain,
blown Into a [room containing sixty cubic
meters of [air will, In a few minutes, show
sodium lines In a flame, standing somo distance away, easily distinguished by tbe nuked
eye. Darwin states the astonishing fact that
ono twenty-millionth part of a grain of ammonia sulphate, will induce changes in a
gland Btimcient to cause a motor impulse to
be sent the wholo length of the tentacle of
an insectivorous plant. Stropin, when diluted more than a million fold, will produce
contractions in tho pupil of the eye.—Kansas City Journal
Multiplication of Drugs.
A Baltimore physician iu a paper published
in a local medical journal denounces with
lively earnestness tho tendency to the multiplication of useless drugs. The writer asserts that In the index to the fifteenth edition of the "United States Dispensatory" ia a
list of about 17,000 names of medicinal substances, which, allowing for duplication and
repetition, he estimates represents about
11,000 remedies. Tbceo of acknowledged
merit In this enormous bulk are aptly compared to Gratiano's reasons, "two grains of
wheat hid in two bushels of chaff." The
very existence of this vast armory of therapeutist weapons demonstrates the doctor's
weakness in his struggle with disease. The
conquerors of this world are tho men of few
weapons; the needless elaboration ot arms Is
tbo vain resort of tbe feeble. —Analyst
No Call for Dudes.
A Washington paper which asked its lady
readers for replies to the question, "What
kind of a husband do you wantl" bos been
overwhelmed with answers. Many of the
fair eligibles would like to marry men of
wealth, but the majority prefer business
men. Some want handsome men, but marked
stress ls laid upon the requirement hi most
esses that whether the objects of their choice
be rich or handsome, tbey must be smart, intelligent, energetio and ol' good habits. As
for the "dude," no quarter is anywhere given
to what seems to be conddered on all hands

sensible girl has any use.—Chicago News

Soubrettes and leading ladles frequently
lose their dnantonds and other valuables,
either by theft or through carelessness, If the
reports given to the public by managers and
press agents are true, but It is very seldom
that an actress loses any money. The reason
Is that very few of tho actresses of highest
rank carry any money, as a rule. It is a
well known fact tbat Adelina Paul rarely
handles any cash excepting a few gold pocket
pieces or charms, and that wherever she goes
on a shopping tour her private secretary follows her with a pocketful of bank notes to
pay the bills.
It ls apparently a pet ambition of nearly
every leading actress to open a personal bank
account, but very few of them have any considerable sum of money In their pooketbooks,

DON'T ENOW BOW A QUsUUtBACI LOOKS.
Mrs. Langtry has a business like way of
paying the many small bills aba dolly Incurs
for odds and ends. She has had thousands of
dollars placed to her credit during the past
six or eight years, but she has as little knowledge of what a greenback or a national bank
blil looks like as a child. It Is said that she
ia superstitious about handling money. All
that she pretends to carry is a long, knitted
purse, filled with sliver coins, which are carried more for ornament than use. All her
little bills are attended to by ber factotum,
Bmithers. It Is difficult to define the exact
office Smithors holds. He plays minor parts
la Mrs. Langtry1* company and he purchases
all the new scenery, but be likes to be known
as the privy chamberlain to her ladyship.
Smithers* task Is not an easy one by any
means. Be has to be out of Rod early every
morning to carry out the orders of bis mistress, who generally has planned a full day's
work for him on tho night previous. A, long
list of purchases Is carefully jotted down', and
when the memorandum bills have been obtained from the stores at which the goods
were bought, aad the Items are checked off,
they are turned over to Smithers. Then
comes a tedious succession of visits to the
places where Mrs. Langtry haa called, and
Smithers' geographical knowledge of Manhattan Island is so complete that it would insure aim a lucrative position as an expert
guide or courier.
During the flrst week of every month a
morning Is set apart for tbe auditing of tbe
more important accounts, but ohesb are only
given to reputable tradesmen, end then seldom for smaller amounts than ♦4*0. It Is
disagreeable to Mrs. 1 jingtry to be asked, as
she is almost every day, for an Indorsement
of a face powder or something of the sort,
which she may never use. She u determined
never to sign a check which may be used as
an advertisement of her patronage. This
whim adds to Smithers' duties, for Els list of
calls is necessarily increased, and it is very
nigh nightfall on "pay day" before his labors
are ended.
SMITHERS ON 8BTTLINO DAY.
It Is, however, on tho eve of Mrs. Langtry'a
departure from the city that Smithers is over
loaded with business. Then be Is obliged to
hurry around to get all the petty accounts
together. Be makes bis flrst appeal to the
newsdealer around the corner, for, from past
experience, bo knows that the man ls the
most dilatory individual with whom he ever
had any business transactions. Be tries to
coax, and then to command, and generally
ends with an appeal: "Well, my dear fellah,
hurry up your score, like»a good chappy, for
the madam ls going sway, you know, and
you cant get your money, you know."
To which his listener will reply, "That's all
right, old man. I'm not afraid t she* good
for any amount"
Then Bmithers goes to hurry op tbe milk
merchant hi the same block who fas a little
account. Then ho must travel to Harlem, to
hunt up some market gardener. Then he remembers that the bank closes at B p. tn., and
he has to stake good time to get toe cj"

Porter— A Dose of "Kougb on Bats."
"I notice that you gave my wife a shot
yesterday," said a young North Side man lust .
evening. "You wrote her up as having luiil
out, through the aid of a shovel, tbe colored
janitor up at our Clark street flats. Well, she j
did, because be pinched her arm. Be has a
habit, as you said, of pinching the arms of
the servant girls wbo go out on tkebaek
piazzas after coal. My wife hit him u"'t!l *he
shovel, as you said, and she thought she luul
killed him, but fortunately he revived. She j
has been greatly bothered with a big, shaggy
black dog who has n habit of running up into
our hall at night and taking a comfortablo
nap on a soft rug which we havo in front of
our outer door. In the morning bo would
arise, take the rug between his teeth and remove it to tho lower hall or tho sidewalk.
Once or twice tbe postman and mllkiiiun
brought It up to us, and wo did not know hut
that wo might some time loso it nitoguther.
It worried us greatly."
"One day after the recreant mat had lieen
returned from tbo middle of tho street by the ;
patrolman," continued the youug man, "my
wife became disgusted. We wei-o having turkey for dinner that day, and my wife took
tho cooked heart of thu turkey, split it open
and filled It with 'rough on rats.' Then she
pinned It together with n woodeu toothpick
and put It by tho door mat. Sho wanted to
poison the dog. Along aliout 5 p. m. up cuiue
the colored janitor to light tho gas ou our
floor. My wife heard h tin monkeying around, j
She didn't like him, and sho wont out mid
asked him what he was about. Ho told her.
Thon she went back to the preparation of our
little supper. Pretty soon she paused aud- i
denly In her work and rushed out Into the
hall. She bad remembered that when she !
talked to tbe janitor sho bad noticed he was !
picking bis teeth with a wooden toothpieU.
Sho looked all around but could not find thc
poisoned turkey heart, and she concluded
that she had at last killed the colored janitor.
Hastily sho donned her bonnet and shawl
and started out In search of the unfortunate
negro. Be wss nowhere to be found, and
her heart began to sink. Along about tho
same hour the next afternoon be turned up
again to light the gas My wife rushed out
and almost embraced him. She asked him
where he bad been, and he said: 'Oh, I'm:
been awful sick.' She looked at bis pale face
and responded: 'You ought to be sick, you
big fool; you ate that turkey heart I left for
tho dog and it was full of 'rough on ruts.'
The bleached out darky feelingly caressed
hts overworked stomach and said: 'I don'
know* whether it wus rough on rats or not,
missy, but I kin tell yo' it wuz rough on mo.'
It is only a question of time when my wife
kills that janitor."—Chicago Herald
Mischievous Princes.
As amusing story was told a few day ago
regarding the young sons of the emperor,
who are continually getting Into mischief.
During the afternoon gomes the chamberlain
hod Introduced tbem Into the mysteries ol
the opera hat, which pleased tho children,
"because," as the martial crown prince sold,
"it goes off like a cannon and will be a good
thing with which to frighten mamma."
Shortly afterward they were in the recep
tion room with their fathor, when tho court
preacher, Dr. Kogel, was announced. He
was asked to enter, aud the children, after
greeting him, were sent to the corridor to
await the audience's end. Here tbey espied
the court preacher's high hat, and, believing
ail such appendages possessed of the qualities
of the chapeau claque, considered it a fit object for experiment.

It would not grow less, tho expected report

Yawning.
It Is now some years since Mr. Alfred Collier wrote his yawning song—an invitation
to drowsiness not less potent than the best
after dinner speech of a magistrate or ths
good old three decker sermon. Yawning haa
generally beon associated with comedy.
There have even been coarse wags who, In
reference to the well known "catching"
power of yawning, bave evolved the Proverb, "What la mine is yawn,"—a confusion
of "meum" and "tunm," only defensible in
the case of a sleep walker. But reports from
Cambridge city, in Indiana, put a tragic.
color upon this Institution. In that town
one Mr. Lackey, having Indulged in a large
fawn, ruptured some of tho cords in the
vertebras, and "remains at present in a critical eandmon." This regrettable Incident
should be a warning to alllasy folk. Yawning la a vice which is of all vices most sympathetic. The terrible maxims about "example" apply to it with fatal pertinence.
Is toere not even the case of the lounger
In the British museum who, standing opposite to one of tho triumphs of Assyrian
sculpture, was provoked by the silence
and the attitude of the monster's jaw
Into whet ts believed to have been the most
capacious yawn on record! Still, the yawn
must be recognized as a valuable social instrument. What is so convenient to get rid
of a wearisome Intruder as that little motion of the bond to the mouth, which, like a
chorus lady's costume, suggests what it does
not reveal It la a standing maxim in the
band books of "Etiquette for the drawing
room" that yawning must on no account be
permitted. As an offense it is tanked with
the kindred offenses of eating soup hastily or
shoveling pens to thu mouth with a knife,
fiat not all the maxims of hand books will
ever ostracise that most convenient form of
dlamf***'. which Intimates by a yawn what
words cannot express. — London Globe.
A Learned Gentleman's Opinion*
Professor Von Dollnger has been studying
tbe subject of tho part played by North
America in literature. His opinion is that
the main hlndronco to thu literary and scientific progress of the United States is to be
found In the went of n great central university, and in "tho slipshod character of the
American nowspapet- press." Notwithstanding these great drawbacks, however, tho

Every age, sex and tint tonality has its own
weakness, which is observed and played upon
by the crafty. A certain salesman says that
when he particularly wishes to dispose of
some article of dress, ho states it to be of
French origin.
"These French shoulders aro very becoming to you, madam," he exclaims, admiringly, as some portly dame dons a peculiarly cut
garment. "I don't believe a lady could be
found, out of Paris, who could wear them to
such advantage."
The consequence of such a speech often is
that the purchaser feels herself to be a worthy
type of Parisian dames, and snaps up the
bargain.
However, humbug of any sort is likely at
some time to meet with a check. One day,
this clover salesman saw a modestly dressed
woman examining somo wraps in his department, and stepping briskly up to her remarked:
"Thirty-five dollars, madam. A new
French design. That plaiting at the back is
the newest invention of a great French
houso."

LOCAL AND GENEBAL,
nretsuar of Employee* ol «Ue V. 0. «'. ;
A meeting of employees of the Vancouver Coal Company was called yesterday afternoon to discuss tlie question ol
the reported laxitv of attendance by the
Colliery Burgeon, Pr- E. A. Prieger |
upon D. Evans, who was lately injured
in one of the Company's mines.
T. Mills was elected Chairman, and
W. Wagstall' was appointed  Secretary.
The Chairman briefly stated the reason
of the meeting being tailed, and snid a
committee of three miners had been
selected to call upon the Superintendent,
Mr. Robins, in regard to the matter, lie
then requested II. Jones, one of the committee, to step forward and acquaint tlie
meeting with what Mr. Robins had said
on the mutter.
H. Jones said—".Mr. Bohins lol.l us
that Dr. l'neger did not get ibe telephone
message till 11 o'clock the day following
Ihe accident, but it is a mystery to me
why Dr. l'neger bad not been to seethe
injured man liefore 2 o'clock the same
day. Mr. Robins also said thai the telephone message on the subjecl between
I)r. Prieger and the Hospital Steward,
hud been written down, lie produced
tlie message which lead much as follows:
Hospital Steward—"IIr. l'neger, I have
a man here [or you; lie is not much hurt
I think, and mav be around when you
arrive. Dr. Prieger wished to know if
he were a man named Mourns who
was hurt some days previously, and
was informed lie was uot.
Some of the miners were highly incensed at the action taken by the steward,
and wished to know whether he luul the
right to diagnose a patient's euse.
The committee also informed the meeting that Mr. Robins had said there
would lie u direct communication by telephone from the oflice to the Doctor's
residence, and gave orders for the line to
be run at once. He did not ask us if we
desired Dr. Prteger to remain here.
Several of the miners again reverted
to the subject of the Hospital Steward,
and were told by the Chairman that the
meeting was called to find out it Dr.
Prteger was guilty of neglect of tluty or
not.
A speaker whose name we were unable
to discover, said that Dr. Prnieger had
led the people to believe that he had
visited the patient by his letter to the
Col-bibb. He also said that Dr. Prieger
had told Aitken's wife he could not neglect hie practice to attend their children.
A miner named Ross said he had
nothing against Dr. Prieger, but thought
that a sliow of hands should be taken to
arrive at a decision regarding the approval
or disapproval, of the miners ami others,
regarding the doctor's conduct. Then it
would just rest with the majority what
course to pursue. He wished to sny that
ii he were sick he would not call Dr.
Prteger.
Palmer said that the meeting present
did not fairly represent the employees of
the V. C. C.
An Italian miner elated that a short
time previously he luul been hurt hy a
fall of coal, some of which stuck in the
bridge of his nose. He had gone to Dr.
Praeger to have it extracted, and was told
that a piece of sticking plaster was good
enough for him. He afterwads went to
Dr. Davis. Once before an Italian
hurt and we complained of the Doi
non-attendance. The Doctor does not
care for the likes of us.
The Chairman—You see there has
been a complaint hefore.
A miner said that the steward of the
Hospital was more to blame than Dr.
Prseger in the case of Evans, as he had
made light of his injuries.
T. Boss replied that as a professional
man Dr, Prteger ought not to have attended to what the Steward said. He does not
deny having the message. Appoint a
committee to investigate the first, charge.
He was telephoned for at 11 o'clock ami
did not get to the hospital till 2 p. m.
Mr. Aitken said he had nothing against
Dr. Priegar except that he was impudent to his wife and said he could not
neglect bis practice to attend "that
thing."
The Chairman—It would be hard to
find a Doctor to suit every one.
A voice—He might try to gain the
good will of a majority.
One man said he had requested Dr.
Prseger to attend his wife who was sick,
but was told to send her round at 10
o'clock the following tlay.
Another miner said lie had requested
Dr. Prieger to attend his child who was
suffering with an abscess in the neck.
He said it was only a case of mumps,
and turned his wife out of the office.
A committee of two hail been sent to
request Dr. Pncger's attendance, antl
they now returned and reported that
they could not find the Doctor, and were
tola to call again. The report of the
committee was adopted.
It was moved and Becontled that two
men be selected from each mine to carry
round a petition for the miners and other
employees of the V, C. 0. to sign for and
against Dr, Pneger.   Motion carried,
Messrs. G. Ramsay and M. Dunsmere
were selected to represent No. 8 shaft; J.
Bradley and Bone No. 1 shaft, and R.
Lamb and H. Souden Southfield mine.
The delegates to No. 1 shaft will also
see the men working in tin: machine
shops.
A_ miner said that it was usual tor it
colliery surgeon on leaving the town on
a visit to notiiy the men who would lake
his place during his absence.
Another miner said that Dr. l'neger
had done so ir the case of bis wife who
was tick.
The committee of six were empowered
to call a meeting when thoy vtvru prepared to do so.
The meeting then adjourned.

number the "pit" is to bold 450, whilst

We admit that we had not thought, previously to bearing Mr. Maher'a statement, that so large n number of persons
could find admittance, and in our inner
consciousness had believed that our new
theatre was decidedly too small for the
rapidly growing requirements of Nanaimo. Now that we are more fully instructed upon tho matter we "take it all

was held last night tor the purpose of
considering the assessment business.
Present Mayor Hale and Aldermen
Webb, Nightingale, Abrams, Hilbert and
Baker.
With the exception of a few small
changes in tlie assessments very little
business was done.
A very wise motion wus moved by Aid.
Abrams who considered that those who
let their property lay idle for speculation
should be assessed the same as those who
had already improved their property.
The meeting adjourned at 8:16 till 3
o'clock to-day.
 •«•	
Correction.
Aid. Abrams is reported in yesterday's
issuo of the CouBIBit, to have said at the
Council meeting thnt—"The Vancouver
Coal Company won't lease the foreshore."
What Mr. Abrams really wished to say
was—"The Vancouver Coal Co.  would
not  dispose of the 1'oie-shore, but would
lease it."
 .♦.	
Sseuincr   Improvements.
Captain Hughes, of the steamer Ferndale, informs us that b.s steamer has undergone several improvements, principal
among which may be cited the shipping
of two new wheels, which give to the
boat an increase of speed amounting to
throe knots an hour.
OTICEIS HEREBY GIVEN THAT

blacksmith business to John Pnll-
niil. All debts will be paid by the undersigned.

In the ranks, and by his ability and gallantry won the appointment of commander in 1880. His bravery in early
