Ho Still Lives.
Ho stood on the steps of the City Hall
; yesterday and blew his nose and wiped
his eyes and steadied himself by one of
the stone columns, and when ho was
asked if he were 111 he replied;
"You bet I'm Ull   'Tafn't In the body,
but right hero—right here in the heart!"
"Are you subject to heart trouble?"
"You betl Heart's alius beeu troubled.
That's why I drink."
"Have you been drinking?"
"'Course  I  have.   I'm  three drinks
, high.   That's why I cry.   When 1 get
j about half drunk I feel so sad and lone-
i somo that I wouldu'   give a frozen ba-
I nana to live another day."
"Do you feel that way now?"
'■I do.   I don't caro to live another

i stretched arms!"
"Poor man!"
"Don't!   Sympathy alius  breaks me
down.   Three drinks and  a few kind
words make a child of me.    Please go
j away and let me stand here and freeze to
death.   I'm no good on earth.   I want
i to die."
The policeman ou duty In tho lower
corridor was informed of the case, and
he went out and gave tho man the collar. Presto change! He had scarcely
got hold of bim when the sorrowful
hearted began to resist in the most vigorous manner, and as he was finally
landed in the patrol wagon he called
out: "Old fel, I'vo got my eye ou you,

lieu. .Sherman At tlio  Play.
Most people aro aware that Gen. W. T.
Sherman is a resident of Now York, and
that ho Is ono of tho most tireless of
theatro goers. He is a first nighter, and
usually a conspicuous figure on an aisle
seat or in a proscenium box. A peculiarity of the general's is thatheseems to
forget that any one besides himself Is In
tho theatre. He talks to his companion
about the people on the stage In a tone of
voice easily audible up in the balcony.
He coughs, clears his throat, blows hi?
nose witb n sound like n steam whistle,
and actually bellows out his remarks
without regard of his surroundings. The
other night at ono of the fashionable
houses he broke in upon a perfectly silent bit of stago action, which was being
worked out by a young actress, with the
stentorian praise of:
"She's going to make an actress."
Everybody near bim stared and thei
laughed. Tho general did not appear to
bo aware ho had been heard, coughed,
blew his nose audibly, and then settle*
back Into bis big collar with a loud grunt
of utter contentment. At that theatre,
where everybody knows the old warrior,
his rumbling interruptions are accepted
good uaturedly.— Now York Letter t«

REPORTS Ol'  COMMITTEES.
Aid. Abrams—1 spoke to the Chairman
of the Street Committee regarding the
feasibility of procuring gravel from the
Nanaimci river and he was of tbe opinion
that just as good zrnvel could be obtained
in this city, that is to say in the proposed
cut in {Fit**-William Street. He would
put a man to screen it just as a test.
Aid. Nightingale—It is already understood that the Street Committee has
power to cut through the hill on Fits
William Street and so on through Lubbock Square to let the water oil' the
place known as Cornish Town, nnd the
gravel might as well lie utilized. There
is a great deal of gravel in the proposed
cut, but we may strike "hardpan" near
the Occidental Hotel.
Aid. Hilbert thought the scheme an
excellent one, as the Council would kill
two birds with one stone.
The report was received and the matter deferred until next meeting.
THE STREET COMMITTEE'S  1*11*0X1.
The workmen nre employed grading
and removing stumps on the Esplanade.
The work is progressing favorably. Mr.
Baker and his men are employed on Gillespie Street cutting brush anil clearing
out small stumriB so that teams can get
in.
Aid. Nightingale—We are seined to
Btart anv fires on account ol the dryness
that pervades everything but if a little
fain should fall we can burn the brush
and stumps on the Esplanade. Tlie report was received and adopted.
Aid. Nightingale said he had consulted
with the firemen on tbe hose cart question and and tbey had decided to purchase one marked No. 1, but wanted a
bell with it. The price of the cart without tlie bell is $185. The bell would probable cost about $1*..
Aid. Abrams uioveal, seconded by Aid.
"Nightingale, that the Cily Clerk be empowered to purchase the bone cart and
bell.   Motion carried.
Aid. Nightingale—I am proud to say
we bave as smart a lot of firemen an any
city in the Province and they take an interest in the work. They will show the
Victoria men or the firemen of any other
city wbat they are made of.
Aid. Nightingale—Is there any news
about the public scales for Victoria Crescent'.'
The City Clerk—It is ordered aad will
arrive. There is some trouble about the
freight.   I am expecting a letter soon.
Aid. Nightingale—I move tbat tenders
be called for to rebuild Commercial
street sidewalk on tbe water side, .leaving
out that portion in front of Wilson's
store. I have given notice that no more
verandah posts must be placed on the
sidowalk aB they arc a decided nuisance.
Tho Mayor wished to know what would
be done about the Crescent sidewalks.
Aid. Nightingale thought that they had
bettor confine tbemselves to one job at a
time.
Aid. Hilbert thought it would be advisable to extend a sidewalk up Nicol Street
as far as tbe new store. It is a new industry in that part of tbe city.
Aid. Nightingale thought it was a considerable industry; he hnd beard money
jingling in the back room.
Aid. Abrams—I move that a committee
be sent to enquire of the Trustees of the
English School wbnt they will let us have
about 30 feet of their property for, so that
we can widen Church Street. Aid. Baker
seconded fce motion, which carried.
At thie juncture Aid. Abrams, who had
to attend another meeting, left and soon

A   SKNSVTIMN'Al.   AKTU.'l.l:.
London, July 29.—An anonvmous article on papacy, tatbe Contemporary Re-
rieir for August, created a decided sensation here. Besides his startling disclosure
ub to the Monatgneur Perslco, th-- writer
throws a flood of light upon the purpose
of ths recent sea'ret consistory nt Rome,
regarding which speculation has been
rampant, and his statements on this point
are equally sensational. He asserts that
the Pope at this consistory declared to
tbe Cardinals that he bail received an
autograph letter from Emperor Francis
Joseph of Austria, offering bim an asylum in case it Bhould become necessary
for Austria to notify Italy that tbelatter's
forcible seizure of papal palaces was regarded by Austria as a casus belli.
The Pall Mall Gazelle to-day comments
upon this article at some length, referring to tbe writer's evident conviction
that an English speaking Pope must be
elected lo succeed Leo XII. The Gatettc
says:—"If either Cardinal Gibbons or
Cardinal Manning is elected the Church
will be in a position to make u gallant
attempt to reconquer the world, but the
leadership of mankind is beyond the
reach of nn Italian, pre-occupied with
grievances over Italian domination.1'
FRENCH   POLITICS.
Paris, July 20.-—General elections were
held throughout France yesterday. Boulanger contesteil 451 cantons out of 1429.
He waa returned in Bordeaux bv a vote
of 3310 to 2091. He was defeated in
Montpelisr nnd Rouen. Other returne
are still incomplete.
Yesterday the time expired within
which Boulanger, Dillon and Rochefort
I were summoned to answer before the
high court of the Senate the charges preferred against tlieni. The accused having failed to respond, the decree of the
court was read before the residences of
the expelled persons, ordering them
to appear within ten days, and in the
event of them failing so to do, sequestering their property and depriving them of
tlieir citi/.eiiBhip.
The publication yesterday by the Boulangist organ Lu Concorde of some of the
high court of the Senate which was to
try Boulanger, causes a great sensation in
Paris, as the depositions published are
onlv such as were favorable to the accused. The Government wns very much incensed and last night, by order of tbe
ministery M. Mermiex, editor of the
paper, was taken into custody. Other
arrests are expected to follow.
LATEST.
Retuma from 813 cantons show that
468 Republicans, 245 Conservatives aud
only eleven Boulangists were elected and
in 98 cantons second ballots will be necessary. Further returns indicate tbat the
Boulangists have succeeded in electing
but 12 candidates in 1200 cantons. The
Government supporters and officials are
jubilant. The Conservatives have gained
200 seats. M. M. Wilson and I.'Herisse
are defeated.
VICTORIA   WON'T ABDICATE,
Loudon, July 29.—It was rumored in
the lobbies of the Commons vesterdav
that the Prince of Wales is anxious that
the Queen should abdicate, as be believes,
that be could secure a more favorable
civil list at the present time, while, if bis
ascent of the throne should be deferred
for any considerable number of years
this would become exceedingly doubttul.
The Queen herself, it is said, while recognizing tbe force of these considerations,
is unwilling to take such a step as long
as her health remains good.

critical condition. Mrs. Diraock waa
arrested and claims she meant to shoot
one of the women and ber husband interfered and Bhe accidentally Bhot him.
Diniock corroborated this storv while the
women of the hoRBe say she deliberately
shot her husband.
A   SEVERE  STORM.
Ashland, Wis., July 29.—The severest
storm ever known here struck this city
about two o'clock Saturday afternoon. It
came in the shape of a lowering cloud
that seemed to burst over the city accompanied by a terrific wind which filled
the air witb all kinds of loose matter.
Trees were torn up and twisted from
their roots. A bouse was carried from
its foundation and wrecked. The Superior Lumber Company's refuse burner
was blown down and the smokestack of
another mill wrecked. Nearly 200,000
feet of lumber was blown off the dock into
the bav.

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the Throat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in 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, snd
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
Jcath. At the onset you must act witk
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
attention is dangerous and may lost ; ..

Over 75,000 monkeys were killed in Brazil
lost year and tbe pelts shipped to London to
be mado Into furs. If the fashion continues
tho monkey race will be thinned ont amazingly in tho next two or three years.
An African trader has so trained a young
gorilla that tt follows him around like s dog.
It recently accompanied him on a tramp of
twenty miles. The animal does numerous
tricks, and is so docile that Its master doesn't
hesitate to allow It to sleep with him.
Testimony haa just been given before the
grand jury at Russell villa', Ey., that a farmer recently had an old ox he wss driving
stick fast in the mud, whereupon he skinned
the animal alive, aud, taking the hide, left
tho poor brute to die in lingering agony.
At Charleston harbor, 8. O., a blackbird
was seen to dive into water his own depth
and bring out a live crab as large aa a silver
dollar. He flung tho crustacean on the
beach, and picked and shook him until he
killed bim, and then made a breakfast on
him.
Information comes from London that ths
proper dog now is the greyhound. Greyhound pups have recently fetched as high as
850 guineas, that price having been paid at a
London auction for the puppy Fullerton.
Sixty to seventy guineas is said to be a common price for young dogs with sny claim to
blood.
C. C, Brown, of Duluth, Minn., recently
unearthed a genuine freak in the shape of a
mammoth cochin rooster, which has four distinct wings, two In their natural places and
one at the knee joint of each leg. The bird
weighs about sixteen pounds, is alive and
Well, and usee all four wings when dying.
An offer of $2.10, made by a Chicago party,
was refused, and the bird will be exhibited
throughout the country.
Clusters of acorns, gilt, silvered or Oronsed,
and wired to a light chain, are pretty to hang
below a bracket or picture, or to entsrtwine
with tho ribbon looping back draperies of
Madras muslin.
F. (recti vo portieres can be crocheted or knit
of rags, if sufficient care is given to their
preparation. Of course the coarsest needles
nt wood or bone should be used, and dns regard shown to harmony or contrsst of color.
In art embroidery tho tendency is to go
away from painfully short and close stitches
to those long slant ones that give much tho
effect of brush strokes, with tbe further advantage of being much more quickly exe-
cuteal. THE :-: MANAIMO x__COOHIEB

Among other teachings of the goody-
goody sort which wc at one time were
ready to accept Implicitly on the word of
the Sunday School teacher and moral
essayist, bul which n wider experience
of the world is continually discrediting,
is the saying that there is no such thing
ua luck. "Prosperity," we have been
ml,I a thousand times, "ia merely the
reward of bard work, sobriety, steady
application. Luck is a delusion, It is For. Nanaimo Dii
pluck that wins." lt is just as well to Passage Apply t
give young men these incentives to exertion, and warn them against relying mii
luck, but it is nonsense to assert that it
is not a very considerable fa,'lor in the
struggle. Who does not know men who
systematically violate all the rules of
copy booh morality—who are neither industrious, nor saving, nor honest, nor |
clever—who nevertheless succeed in life, J
push their way and become wealth)' and
therefore respectable? Everything seems
lo favor them. Tbev lose situations because of carelessness or incompetence,
and inside of a week drop into better
ones, while it hundred of tbe plodding,
industrious and steady fellowsare seekiug
for a chance in vain. The lucky man
buys a house, and hefore the ink is drv
on the agreement some man conies along
and gives bim a thousand dollars on his
bargain. He fails in business not without ti strong suspicion of crooked dealing and  everybody  Hunks   lie  is done
for,    but   be     cets     a'redit     iu     some
mysterious   manner anal  in  a month or
so is on his feet again.   Everything he
touches seems to  turn out well,   though
tliere is no single element  in the man's
character which seems either to deserve
or invite success.   According to all the
rules of Benjamin  Franklin and others
who   have   attempted  to  formulate the
I'onditions of success in  life, he ought to
come to poverty and disgrace. But sonie-
hew he doesn't.   It is unaccountable ex-
1'ept  nn   the ground   of luck.   Oh ihe
otlier   hand   how  many men  there  are
who nre apparently born unlucky, who
are chronic failures In whatever they undertake, through no fault of their own.
Whenever they  buy the market   is sure
to fall.    When  they lake a partner or
employ-  an   agent   be   swindles   them.
Strive and save as they   may the  battle
goes against tbem and the only  reason
that can be  fairly  assigned   is  ill-luck.
One of the Rorusi iiii.oh' is said to  have
made It a rule  never lo have dealings
with an unlucky man.   Harsh and arbi
trary as such a determination seems i
indicates a go<«l deal of shrewd  worldly
wisdom.    There   are   unlucky   men in

Luke   Sharp Meets   a Stranger Wlio Talks
About John R. Fell owe.
The other day I sat down to dinner In tho
Oalt house at Lout-,villa Next to me sat a
gentlema.ii whom at flrst sight I thought I
knew. The Becond look and hia own -dance
of unrecognltion at me showed me that I
was mistaken. After a few moments I saw
wby it was that I thought I recognized Mm,
He bore a singular likeness to the cartoons of
Mr. John R. Fellows, the district attorney of
New York. Fellows' picture had appeared
in many of the comic papers, and my neighbor at the dinner table bore a great resemblance to the cartoons.   At last I said:
"Do you know that you look very much
like John R. Fellows, of New York!"
"Yes," he answered; "I have often been
taken for him.   Po you know him!"
"No, I do not-but I have seen a good many
pictures of him In the papers. Do you know
bimr
"I am slightly acquainted with him, I regret to say."
"Then he is not a friend of yoursf'
"On the contrary, an enemy."
"Well, it must be rather embarrassing to
look like a person's worst enemy."
"Oh, I don't know that Fellows Is my
worst enemy, although perhaps ho Is."
"Then 1 imagine you didn't vote for him on
the occasion of that memorable strugglol"
"No, sir; I did not Still, I did not vote
for Mr. Nicoll, so It is a sort of 'saw off' between Fellows and myself."
"Well, I would, have gone further. I would
bave voted for Nicoll. My sympathies were
with him In tho contest."
"Then you are not a New York manf"
"No, I'm from Detroit"
'Ah I I did not think a local election would
have had any Interest bo far west."
"Far west! Bless you, Detroit is not for
nest Detroit is an eastern city. It has the
stability of the cast, with the enterprise of
tbe west"
"Must be a wonderful town,"
"Oh, it is.   What is Nicoli doing now!"
"I believe ho ta practicing law. He is a
good lawyer."
"I should think you would havo been sorry
you did not vote for him when you must have
felt that it was the right thing to do."
"Well, none of us do as wo should, /ou
know. Besides, a person seems to see these
things clearer after they are over than he
does at the time. Anyhow, it would not have
made any difference with the result."
"That's so. By the way, what sort of a district attorney is Fellows making! How does
the average man regard him!"
"Well, it's like thia Fellows is very much
like tho rest of us. Ho hi neithor as good aa
his friends try to make him out, nor is ho aa
bad as you or i might think him to be. In a
word, he's human. Ho likca his friends and
trios to give bis enemies as good as they
send.1'
"I supposo you know that!"
"Well, I ought to. Fellows has done me a
good deal of barm in bis time, and yet I will
nay this for bim, that if I wanted a dollar 1
don't know any man who would let ma have
it quicker than John i\. Follows."
"I don't wonder a man liko that is popular/
"That's tho sort of man he Is. Now, ho
knows very well what 1 think of him, yet ho
would just aa scion tuku a drink with mo as
with you."
The stranger nml myself then talked on
other subjects. 1 found him to be a very
well informed mnn and a most fascinating
talker. He was In fact one of the most geniul
men I ever mot
The nest day I was paralyzed to read the
following item in tho Courier-Journal:
"Johu It Fellows, tho district attorney of
New York city, passetl through Louisvillo
yesterday on Ills way east He stopped at
tbe Gait houso and left on theL. and N, train
at midnight. Mr. Fellows has boon visiting

Where Woman Excels.
When a woman has a hen to drive into the
coop, sho takes hold of her skirts with both
hands, shakes them quietly at tho delinquent
and says: "Shoo, therel" Tho hen takes one
look at the object to assuro herself that lt ls a
woman, and theu stalks majestically into the
coop. A man doesn't do It that way. He
goes outdoors saving: "It's singular nobody
can drive a hen but mo 1" and picking upa
stick of wood, hurls tt at the offending biped
and yells: "Got In thero, you thief 1" Tho
hen Immediately loses ber reason and dashes
to the other end of the yard. The man
plunges after her. She comes back with her
iiead down, her wings out and followed by a
miscellaneous assortment of stove wood,
fruit cons, clinkers, and a very mad mau In
tbe rear.
Then sho skims under the barn and over a
fence or two and around the house back to
the coop again, oil tbe whilo talking as only
nn excited hen can talk, and all the while followed by things convenient for throwing,
and by a man whose coat Is on tho snwbuct,
whose hat is on the ground and whose per-
splration is limitless. By this timo the other
hens bavo como out to take a hand In the debate and help dodge missiles. Tho man vows
that overy ben on tho placo shall bo sold at
once, puts on bis hat and coat and goes down
town. The woman comes out, goes right to
work and has every one of thoso hens housed
and counted Inside of two minutes. ---Mobilo

The Two Html, of Death.
Tlie Medical News lias an article upon
resuscitation after death which, If exten-
dvoly read by the laity, is sure to occa-
iion doubt and anxiety in tho minds of
many persons. After showing that two
kinds of death—somatio and cellular—
.like place before life has completely
faded from the body to be recalled, the
irticle points out the importance of
physicians properly distinguishing between the two and renewing or abandoning their efforts at resuscitation as circumstances direct. Somatic death may
be briefly described as the failure of the
main organs of the body, the brain, heart
■ind lungs, to perform their functions,
while cellular deuth is where the cells or
tissues of the body die Both may occur
at the same time, but, the writer urges,
tho former may take place without the
1 latter, and often does, and in all such
cases there is a chance of resuscitating
tho dead person until cellular death supervenes.
Authcntio Instances of such resuscita-
tation aro given—among others, tho case
of a man  whose body  remained at the
bottom of a shallow stream for fully half
an hour beforo it wns taken out.   He was
resuscitated after several hours of unremitting labor.    But a moro remarkable
case waa that vouched for by Professor
1 Armor.    A friend of his died from In-
diau   hemp  poisoning.   Tho physician
! racked his brain for moro than an hour
for some means of restoring his friend to
lifo while he lay dead in his presenco,
and at leugtn called to his aid a sturdy
' negro.   They worked manfully for four
i hours.    During all that time there waa
not tho slightest sign of life, but at its
expiration a slight movement of the lips
, was detected, and tho stethoscope dis-
I closed   "an   occasional   light,   muffled
j sound over   the  heart."   Tlieir  efforts
wero doubled, with tho result that respi-
I ration and circulation wero very slowly
, re-established and consciousness returned
1 after many hours.   Tho man lived for
| many years afterward—indeed, up to a
I few years ago, and was n prominent New
\ England  banker.—New   Orleans  Pica-
i yune.

Tho popular ballad, "Listen to tbo Mocking Bird," was written nntl lirst published in
i8S5, by Septimus Winner, of Philadelphia,
under tbo nom do pliuno of "Alice Hawthorne?," hia mother's maiden namo. It was
suggested Incidentally by listening to a colored man, Dick Milburn, known as ""Whistling Dick," who wandered about the city
whistling in imitation of a mocking bird, at
tho sumo timo strumming an accompaniment
upou tho guitar. Struck by his remarkablo
pori'ormauco as n warbler Mr, W. said to
him ono day, half in jest, "Dick, I'll write
you a song for your mocking bird." The
compass of tho oolored man's voice waa
hardly an octave, aud, as will bo observed,
tho melody was made Very simple, so as not
to bo beyond his reach, Tho words, "Listen
to tho Mocking Bird," which ran higher,
wero to bo spoken by him, not sung, except
whero they came within his compass, followed by Iho whistler's nvirvelous imitation
af tho bird.
Tho man was a vory good natural fellow,
but of so littlo intellectual capacity that
though ho camo to Mr. Winner's music store
night after niglit to learn the words of tho
song- he wns nover able to master more than
)iio verso of it. Such, however, was his
sense of tho comto and such his facility in improvising lines to tho music, suggesting ridiculous fancies to attract tho crowd, that his
"Mocking Hird" soon addod greatly to Dick's
local reputation. Tbo song was published in
ballad form, and at onco becamo»vory popular,
and such is ita hold upon tlio public fancy that
although it has been sung and whistled and
played tho country ovor for an avorage lifetime, it still retains itsplncoas asougof national reputation,—Philadelphia Uooord.

Ate Firo Dozen Raw Egs-ii,
A boiler maker named Howe astonished tho
epicures at Schcffer & Kerlingor's restaurant,
Baltimore, by offering to hot $5 that he could
oat, without Intermission, flvo dozen raw
eggs, shells and all. A doubting Thomas accepted tbo offer, and tho freshest chicken
fruit obtainable was placed before tho boilor
maker. Tho latter, a halo and lusty mechanic,
unbuttoned his vest anil prepared for business. Tho lirst two dozen disappeared within
half an hour, tho eater apparently enjoying
his meal. Ho was uot so fresh getting away
with tho third dozen, and took more timo,
still swallowing tlie fourth. Ho kept at work,
however, and finally succeeded in dispatching the Inst twelve, though not without an
effort.
His method was a peculiar ouo. Ho took
j up one egg after the otlier, and, after sucking
It dry, tossed tho sholl Into his mouth, and,
after crunching it Into powder, swallowed
that also. When ho had finished liis job hu
drew from Ms pocket a beer bottle filled with
alcohol, used in a spirit lamp, and drank
down tho fluid, Turning to tho astou ished
spectators, ho offered to eft seven dozen more
without tho shell, but no ono took him up. -

Ono day an old woman carrying a
heavy basket entered the station at
T . Approaching the clerk, she addressed him thus: "Fan will Iget a train
to Aberdeen?" "In about an hour," was
tho reply. The old woman seated herself, but after about ten minutes had
elapsed she repeated her question: 'Fan
will I get a train to Aberdeen?" "Didn't
I tell you already in about an hour?" replied the clerk, very sharply, at tho
samo time slamming the window of the
ticket box in the face of the old woman.
Nothing daunted after a few minutes,
she for the third time approached the
ticket box. When the window was
drawn up she repeated her question,
making sure at the same time that the
clerk would not treat her as on the last
occasion by inserting her basket in the
aperture. Tlie clerk, now irritated by
hor persistence, answered in a moro dignified manner than ever, upon which the
old woman, eyeing him steadily, said:
"Div' ye ken fa yo min' me o'?" "No,"
said the clerk, drawing himself up to his
full height and pulling his mustache vigorously, expecting, no doubt, to hear
that he bore a striking resemblance to

A minister's little daughter, who had
been to church for tho Urst time and
heard her father preach, was questioned
by him on reaching home as to how she
liked his sermon. Thero was an embarrassed silence. Then the little maid,
tired out with the long strain of "being
good," and yet anxious not to offend In
any wise, made answer with a long
drawn breath of patient resignation:

Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of con- '
gratulating you upon thc wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J,
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all. over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
m\*id to hear of it*, finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, arc now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhoe,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as.. general Sedative, that have occurred
und-t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, wc
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used .ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
Conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
aUo from a sense of duty we owe to the proJJ.
fession and the public, as wc ire ofthe j
opinion tnat the substitution of any other1
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART j
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members uf
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His j
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION. — Vice-Cnancellor Sir \V.

wherever his l,,t may hereafter l nst,
the Bincere well wishes of liis whilom co-
laborers tor his future prosperitv and

we echo the sentiments <>f a majority of
the people ,,f Nanaimo.
We suppose it is necessary, owing io a
long-established  custom  among   news-
th.
•di-
papers, ior us, upon assuming
torial control and proprietorsliip of the
C.iiiiikii. to say a tew   words regarding
our future ,'Otirse. and to map out a line
ot duty tor ourself. This line of duty, in
too many Instances, is lived up to just »,,
long as the circumstances which gave ii
birth continue to exist. We have no
grandiloquent promises to make. We
have taken charge of this paper us n
business proposition—the same a* any
business man would take charge ,,i a
mercantile concern. We believe there is
a Held in Nanaimo for ;t lire, energetic and
go-aktod newspaper. Such we shall uso
our best endeavors ft make theCouKiKB.
Nanaimo'8 Interests shall be our interests; and our interests, like that of every
other business man and property-holder
iii this section ofthe island, shall be the
growth, the extension and the prosperity
uf Nanaimo. Politically, the Courier
will well guard the interests ol the ,-oin-
nuinity and will not lie in the least Htraiit
t,, rap any obnoxious lien,l that may pop

to rewind or enemies to punish, und
shall well survey the lield and weigh thc

We may say this much, in conclusion,
and hope it will be the lasl time we may
have occasion to refer to it, thai we are
the 'nle proprietor ol the Coubieb, and ils
policy will be dictated by us. and no ,,ne
else.
LUC K.
Among other teachings of the goody-
good; sort which we at one lime were
ready to accept Implicitly on the word of
the Sunday School teacher and moral
essayist, but which a wider experience
of the world is continually discrediting, ]
is the saying that there is no such thing
as luck. "Prosperity," wh hare been
told a thousand times, "is merely thei
reward of linril work, sobriety, steady
application. Link is a delusion, It is
pluck that wins." It is just as well to
give young men these incentives tt, exec- j
tion and warn them against relying on
luck, but it Is nonsense to assert that it
iB not a very considerable factor in the
struggle. Who does not know men who
systematically violate nil thc rules of
copy book morality—who are neither Industrious, nor saving, nor In,nest, nor
clever—who nevertheless succeed in life,
push their way and become wealthy and
therefore respectable? Everything seems
to favor them. Thev lose situations because of carelessness or Incompetence,
and inside of a week drop into better
ones, while a hundred nf the plodding,
industrious and steady fellows are srekiu*;
for a chance In vain. The lucky man
buys a house, and before the ink is drv
on the agreement some man comes along
and gives liim a thousand dollars on his
bargain. He fails in business not without a strong suspicion of crooked dealing and everybody thinks he is dime
for, hut he nets credit in some
mysterious manner anal In a month or
ao is nn his feet again. Everything he
toui'ltes seems to turn out well, though
there is no single element in the man's
character whicli seems either to deserve
or invite success. According tn all the
rules of Benjamin Franklin and others
who have attempted to formulate the
conditions of success in life, he ought tn
come to poverty and disgrace. But some-
hew he doesn't, ll is unaccountable except on the ground nl luck. On the
other hand how many men there are
who are apparently horn unlucky, who
nre chronic failures in whatever they undertake, through no fault of their own.
Whenever they buy the market is sure
to fall. When they lake a partner or
employ au agent he swindles them.
Strive and save as they may the battle
goes against them anal the only reason
that can be fairly assigneal is Ill-luck.
One of the Rn'i'itsciiii.ns'is said to have
made it a rule never to have dealings
with an unlucky man. Harsh and arbitrary as such a determination seems it
indicates a good deal of shrewd worldly
wisdom. There are unlucky men In
whose hands nothing prospers. It is
folly, of course, for any man to rely on
his luck to the neglect of the ordinary
aonditions of success. Other things being equal prudence, industry and integrity are sure to tell, anil the thrifty
and persevering man as a rule is able to
command success in thc long run. Bnt
the rule has many exceptions and the
element of luck frequently upsets the
balance and bailies all calculations.
The female suffragists have met the
women's protest in the  Nineteenth   Cen-
, tury against women's suffrage by a I'onii-
ter declaration in favor oi ft, whicli is
published ill the Fortnightly. This latter
is signet! by all the priestesses and  high'
' priesteBses of ihe cult. For all practical
purposes Ihey might have saved themselves the trouble, for Iheir views on the
subject were already fully known. The
vast majority of the female sex prefer to
remain women, and have no ma,re desire
to crowd rotinil the ballot-box than to
beeome hansom-drivers. Mrs. l-'awvett
and Mrs. Ashton Dllke publish articles in
thd .Vineteenth Century in which they denounce all women who diMer from then,
on the question, and they give many
feminine reasons why the opinion! of
such women should be Ignored. Having
thus deall with open enemies they turn
upon those enemies within Ihe temple,
who   are   not   prepared   lo admit  that,
although un political distinction ought In
be recognised between the Bexes,   female
' iiifTnige should be ,'online,1  to girls,  old
maids and widows.     In this they have
some difficulty, because they cannot really slate the reason   which   induces  Ihem
to make the distinction.     It   is our old
friend the thin end of the wedge.    If all
women ha.l  votes,  women  would  rule,
for  there   would   be  mure   female than
male voters.     The wumen's-right ladies,
therefore, aleein it more expedient to ask.
at lirsl, that girls, old maids and widows
should   alone   be granted  the suffrage,
though why   Miss Jones  should   lorn-  it
when she bee,,mes Mrs. Smith, and only
regain it when she has buried Mr. Smilh.
i nn male mind  can   understand.     There
. are, perhaps, one hundred women In the
| United Kingdein   with masculine minds,
; and who would very  possibly make good
j legislature.     They are the exceptions  lo
the rule:   the  black  swans.     They are
women by accident, and really it   is impossible for us to alter the entire relation
■between men and women,  and t,, make
i petticoats supreme in the State, in order
; to enable lhese hundred black  swans  to
' play the part of men ; and we are triad to
i think tbat the enormous majority nf  women entirely agree with this view.

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die fraim diseases of the Throat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle Germs inlo the
system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extenal to the lungs
producing Camsumption anal to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all ii dangerous, and
if allowed tn proceed will in time cause
death. At the onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a cold tn gai without
attention is alangerous and may losa

Lake  Sharp Meets   a Stranger Who Tajka
About John I;. Fellows.
Tbe other day I sat down to dinner In too
Halt bouse at Loulsvillo. Next to me sat a
gentleman wbom at flrst sight I thought I
knew. Tbe second look and his own glance
of unrecognition at me showed me that I
was mistaken. Ait-er a few moments I saw
wby it was tbat I thought I recognized him.
He bore a singular likeness to the cartoons of
Mr. John R, Fellows, the district attorney of
New York. Fellows' picture had appeared
In many of the comlo papers, and my neighbor at the dinner table bore a great resemblance to the cartoons.   At last I said:
"Do you know that you look very much
like John R, Fellows, of New York!"
'*Yes," he answered; "I have often been
taken for him.   Do you know himf"
"No, I do not; but I have seen a good many
pictures of him in the papers. Do you kuow
him*"
"I am slightly acquainted with him, I regret to say."
"Then he is not a friend of yoursf
"On the contrary, an onemy."
"Well, it must be rather embarrassing to
look like a person's worst enemy."
"Ob, I don't know that Fellows is my
worst enemy, although perhaps he is."
"Then I imagine you didn't vote ior him. on
the occasion of that memorable struggle!"
"No, sir; I did not Still, I did not vote
for Mr, Nicoll, so It ls a sort of 'saw off' botween Fellows and myself."
"Well, 1 would have goneiurther. I would
bave voted for Nicoll. My sympathies were
with him in tho contest"
"Then you aro not a New York manf"
"No, I'm from Detroit"
"Ah I I did not think a local election would
have had any interest so far west."
"Far west! Bless you, Detroit Is not for
west Detroit is an eastern city. It has tbe
stability of the cast, with the enterprise of
tbe west"
"Must be a wonderful towu."
"Oh, it is.   What is Nicoll doing nowl"
"I believo be Is practicing law. He U a
good lawyer."
"I should tbink you would have been sorry
you did not vote for him wheu you must have
felt that it was tbe right thing to do."
"Well, none of us do as wo Bhould, /ou
know. Besides, a person seems to see these
things clearer after they are over than he
does at tbe time. Anyhow, it would not have
made auy difference with the result"
"That's so. By the way, what sort of a district attorney Is Fellows making? How does
the averago man regard bim!"
"Well, It's like thia Fellows is very much
like tho rest of us. He is neither as good as
his friends try to make bim out, nor is he as
bad as you or 1 might tbink him to be. In a
word, he's human. lie likes his friends and
trios to give his enemies as good as they
send.1'
"I suppoao you know tbat!"
''Weil, I ought to. Fellows has done me a
good deal of harm tn lm time, and yet I will
way tbls for him, that if I wanted a dollar 1
don't know any man who would let mo have
it quicker than John 11. Fellows."
"I don't wonder a man like that is popular. *"
"That's tho sort of man he is. Now, ho
knows very well what 1 think of him, yet ho
would just as soon tako a drink with me as
with you."
The stranger nnd myself theu talked ou
other subjects, i found him to be a very
well informed man nnd a most fascinating
talker. Ho was in fact one of the most gonial
men I ever mot
The nest day 1 was paralyzed to read thy
following item in tho Courier-Journal:
"Jobu It. Fellows, tho dtstrlot attorney of
Now York city, passed through Louisville
yesterday on Ids way east. He stopped at
the Gait bouse and left on tbe L. and N. train
at midnight. Mr. Fellows has been visiting
his family, who havespent the winter at Now
Orleaus. Ho thinks Louisville is a wonderful
city, witb u groat future. Ho said tliat he
regretted vory much not having had timo to
meet somo of the city's prominent men, but
added tbat ho bad been very much entertained by a Detroit man wbom ho had tho
pleasure of meeting at the Gait yesterday at
dinner."—Luko Bharpm Detroit Free Press.
Where Woman Excels.
When a woman has a hen to drive into tho
coop, she takes hold of her skirts with both
I muds, shakes them quietly at tho delinquent
and says: "Shoo, therel" Tho hon takes one
look at tho object to assure herself that lt is a
woman, and then stalks majestically into the
coop. A man doesn't do it that way. He
goes outdoors saying: "It's singular nobody
can drive a hen but mo 1" and picking upa
stick of wood, burls It at tho offending biped
and yells: "Got In thero, you thief I" Tbo
ben immediately loses her reason and dashes
to the other end of tbe yard. The man
plunges after her. She comes back with her
head down, her wings out and followed by a
miscellaneous assortment of stove wood,
fruit cans, clinkers, and a very mad man in
the rear.
Then sho skims uuder the barn and over a
fence or two and around the house back to
tbe coop again, all the whilo talking as only
un excited hen can talk, and all the while followed by things convenient for throwing,
and by a man whose coat is ou tho sawbuck,
whoso bat is on the ground and whoso perspiration ts limitless. By this timo the other
hens bavo como out to take a hand In the debate and help dodge missiles. Tho man vows
that overy hen on the placo shall bo sold at
once, puts on his bat and coat and goes down
town. The woman comes out, goes right to
work and has every ono of thoso hens housed
and counted Inside of two minutes.*— Mobilo

Ono Way to Toast.
Crimsonbeak—I see that tbey toasted your
Triend Bacon the other night.
Yeast—Is that a fact!
"Yes, 1 read it in last night's paper."
"At tbo alumni dinner, I suppose!"
"No; It was out In Wyoming."

Yonkers Statesman.
Newspaper   Offices   Flooded with Requests
for a  *''i.mc,-* to Draw a Blank.
"I think every young man and young
woman in this town wants to go Into journalism.''
The speaker was one of the best known
; managing editors in New York city, and he
, passed his hand orer his troubled brow as be
moka
"I get aliout forty applications per day
from men and women who want to become
journnlists. und the proprietor of this paper
gets twice as many more. A young man
whom I know to bu making #100 per week
in tbo dry goods business came to mo and
offered to work for $23 per week as a re-
I porter It makes mo a trifle weary, if these
j young men and women knew how many
\ blanks thero uro in this lottery and how few
prizes drawn they would quit"
This managing editor was in a bad humor,
but ho was ail right as to facts. Thero isn't
1 a newspaper ofiico in town that isn't flooded
j witb applications for work. Tho prizes in
New York journalism are few. You are
j reasonably suro of drawing a blank pretty
I nearly every time, Thero aro more than
11,000 bard working newspaper men In New
I York eity. Outside of thoir own offices and
j thu New York Press club not two dozen of
I them are known to the general public. Those
i who aro well known outside of New York
j could almost bo counted upon tho fingers of a
I single hand
Tho men who havo drawn prizes cannot
themselves tell you how they did it All
they know is that they started at tho li-ottcro
and got thero—somehow
This is not intended to encourage printexV
devils to throw tyjio around, but OS an illustration.
Charles A. Dana Is. perhaps, the most fa-
muus of tho men who nave drawn prizes. As
editor of The Sun he dra ws u salary of $28,000
per year, and from othor sources his income is
melled to about $150,001) per year, upon which
be manages to livo very cumlortubly, aided by
a French cook, whoso Income income is bigger than (that of a congressman. Dana started
du Tho New York Tribune ut a salary of £>&
per week. He started in a small way from a
town in the interior of Ohio. Joseph Pulitzer,
rf Tho World, Is said to clear Sli.OGO per day.
Iio is not a working Journalist now, but not
tnany years ngo ho was an ordinary reporter
in St. Louis, and they say he was a hustler,
too. Whitelaw Reid, as a matter of form,
draws a salary of somo $15,000 par year from
Tho Tribune, but his income from bis stock
in tbo paper is several times this amount,
John A. Cockerill is ouo of tho working
managing editors and newspaper men, and
draws n salary of $15,000 per year from
Iho World, and has an interest in it
besides, Cockerill was * typo, and fought his
way up from tho rank*, Amos Cummings is
Baid to have an Incorai oJ .$15,000 per year.
Ho was a compositor and a private in tho
Union army during the rebellion, and ho,
too, came from tbe bottom up to where ho is
now. Chester A. Lord, tho managing oditor
of The Sun, has a salary of $7/-00 per year,
lie started on a small paper in tho interior of
this state, and bad to work hard for success.
But be is littlo known outside of Now York.
Georgo F. Spinney, as managing editor of
The Now York Times, litis a salary of about
$7,000 per year. But ho has been a hard
working journalist ail his life, aud the salary
is not so much. He, too, is littlo known out-
sido of New York.
There aro probably fifty or siity men wbo
wo simply  writers,  liko  Blakcly  Hall and
Julian Ralph, who earn anywhere from $50
to $160 per weok, but, with tho exception of

are never beard or spoken of except in their
I own homes and circles.

Origin of a Popular Soiij;.
The popular ballad, "Listen to tho Mocking Bird," was written and lirst published in
1855, by Septimus W timer, of Philadelphia,
under tho nom do plumo of "Alice Hawthorne," hia mother's maiden namo. It was
suggested incidentally by listening to a colored man, Dick Milburu, known as "Whistling Dick," wbo wandered about tho city
whistling In Imitation of a mocking bird, at
tho samo timo strumming an accompaniment
! upon tho guitar. Struck by his remarkablo
performance as a warbler Mr. W. said to
hhn ono day, half In jest, "Dick, I'll write
you a song for your mocking bird" The
Compass of the colored man's voico was
hardly an octave, aud, ns will be observed,
tbo melody was made very simple, so as not
to bo beyond his roach. Tho words, "Listen
to tho Mocking Bird," which ran higher,
wero to bo spoken by him, not sung, except
whero they camo within his compass, followed by lhe whistler's marvelous imitation
of tbo bird.
Tho man was n very good natured fellow,
but of so littlo Intellectual capacity that
though lie camo to Mr. Winner's music store
night after night to loan, the words of the
long, he was nover able to master more than
ano verso of it. Such, however, was his
sense of tho comlo and such his facility in Improvising lines to tbo music, suggesting ridiculous fancies to attract tho crowd, that his
"Mocking Bird" soon added greatly to Dick's
local reputation. Tho song was published in
ballad form, and at once becamo-very popular,
and such is its hold upou tho publio fancy that
although it has been sung und whistled aud
played tho country ovor for dn average lifetime, it still retains its place as a song of national reputation.—Philadelphia Rooarrt.
Ato Fivo Dozen  Itnw Eggs.
A boiler maker named Howe astonished tbo
epicures at Schoffcr & Xerlinger's restaurant,
Ualtinioro, by offering to bet $5 tbat be could
oat, without intermission, flvo dozen raw
1 egg*, shells and nil. A doubting Thomas uc*
{ copied tho offer, and tho freshest chicken
fruit obtainable was placed before tho boilar
I maker. Tho latter, a halo and lusty mechanic,
unbuttoned his vest aud prepared for business. Tho first, two dozen disappeared within
half an hour, tho eater apparently enjoying
his meal. He was not so fresh getting away
with the third doaen, and took more timo,
still swallowing tlie fourth. He kept at work,
however, and fuuUly succeeded in dispatching thc Inst twelve, though not without nn
effort
His method was a peculiar ouo. Ho took
up one egg after tbo other, and, after sucking
it dry, tossed tho sholl into bis mouth, anil,
after crunching it into powder, swallowed
that nlso. When ho had finished his job hu
drew from his pocket a beer bottle filled with
alcohol, used in a spirit lamp, and drank
down the llu id. Turning to tho astonished
spectators, he offered to et»t Sevan dozeu mort1
without tho shell, but no ono took him up.-
Baltimore Dispatch,
The Two Rinds of Death.
Tbe Medical News haa an article upon
resuscitation after death which. If extensively read by the laity, is sure to occasion doubt and anxiety in the minds of
■nany persons. After showing that two
kinds of death—somatio and cellular—
:ake place before life has completely
faded from the body to be recalled, the
irticle points out the importance of
physicians properly distinguishing between the two and renewing or abandoning their efforts at resuscitation as circumstances direct. Somatic death may
be briefly described as the failure of the
main organs of the body, the brain, heart
and lungs, to perform their functions,
while cellular death is where the cells or
tissues of the body die Both may occur
at the same time, but, the writer urges,
tho former may take place without the
latter, and often does, and in all such
cases there is a chance of resuscitating
tho dead person until cellular death supervenes.
Authentic instances of such resusclta-
tal ion are given-—among others, the case
of a man  whose body  remained at the
bottom of a shallow stream for fully half
an hour beforo it wus taken out.    He was
resuscitated after several hours of unremitting labor.    Gut a more remarkable
case was that vouched for by Professor
Armor.    A friend of his died from Indian   hemp  poisoning.    Tho phyBician
racked his brain for moro than an hour
for some means of restoring his friend to
lifo whilo he lay dead in his presence,
audut leugtn called to his aid a sturdy
negro.   They worked manfully for four
hours.    During all that time there was
not the slightest sign of life, but at its
expiration a slight movement of the lips
was detected, and tho stethoscope disclosed   "an   occasional   light,   muffled
sound over   the   heart.'    Tlieir  efforts
were doubled, with the result that respiration and circulation wore very slowly
re-established and consciousness returned
after many hours.   Tho man lived for
many years afterward—indeed, up to a
few years ago, and was a prominent New
England  banker.—New   Orleans  Picayune. _______^__^

Ono day an old woman carrying a
heavy basket entered the station at
T . Approaching tho clerk, sho addressed hhn thus: "Fan will Iget atrain
to Aberdeen?" "In about an hour," was
tho reply. The old woman seated herself, but after about ten minutes had
elapsed sho repeated her question: 'Fan
will I get a train to Aberdeen?" "Didn't
I tell you already In about an hour?" replied the clerk, very sharply, at tho
samo time slamming the window of the
ticket box in the face of the old woman.
Nothing daunted after a few minutes,
she for the third time approached the
ticket box. When the window was
drawn up she repeated her question,
making sure at the samo time that the
clerk would not treat her as on the last
occasion by inserting her basket in the
aperture. Tlie clerk, now irritated by
her persistence, answered in a more dignified manner than ever, upon wbich the
old woman, eyeing him steadily, said:
"Div' ye ken fa ye min' me o'?" "No,"
said the clerk, drawing himself up to his
full height and pulling Ills mustache vigorously, expecting, no doubt, to hear
that he bore a striking resemblance to
tho Prince of "Wales or somo other great
man. "Weel," said the old lady, "ye
just pit me in min' o' the sweep that

A Curious Stualy of Human Habit
Wliy do theatro goers prefer seats on
the right of the house? When you are
on the street on which side of the walk
do you keep? On the right, don't you?
Of courso you do; and yon, look to the
left, eh? If you don't you aro different
from every one elso, Well, you walk to
tho right and you look to tho left.
Twenty-live or thirty years of this sort
of thing naturally gets one accustomed
to it. Now, when you sit for two hours
and a half or threo hours in ono position,
if you havo to keep your eyes to the
right, you will find that it tires the
muscles of the eyes quite perceptibly.—
Albany Argus.
Marvelou. Fortitude.
A minister's little daughter, who had
been to church for the first timo and
heard her father preach, was questioned
by him on reaching homo as to how she
liked his sermon. There was on embarrassed silence. Then the little maid,
tired out with the long strain of "being
good," and yet anxious not to offend in
any wise, made answer with a long
drawn breath of pattens resignation:

beared it."—Harper's Young People.

From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical

1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Creat
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of con-'
gratuiating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all. over
the East. Asa remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we '
are happy tu say, arc now relegated lo the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrho*,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as v general Sedative, that have occurred
und-.. our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Dinrrhiea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, wc
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used .ny other foim of this '
medicine than Collis I'.rowne's, from a lirm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the projj
fesilon and the public, as wc ire ofthe
Opinion tnat the substitution of aay other !
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE I

very linu oil painting of 11 horse. For
style and execution this production deserves great praise and has, already,
while on exhibition in Whitfield Bros.,
window, attracted considerable attention.
(Ireat credit is due Mr. Fenton for the
attention he has bestowed upon the painting as he is at present working in the
Wellington Colliery. Mc has also executed
very fine portraits that will compare favorably with any work done on the Island

It is Duly gratifying to notice the number of young residents of Nanaimo who
have figured successfully in the late examinations for teacher's certificates held
in Victoria. First and foremost, we notice the name of J. A. Galloway, of tbe
Nauaimo High School, who has secured
a Second Class B; next comes Miss Lena
Botting with u Third Class Grade P., and
then Marniadiike ('. Reynard, Herbert
D. R. Stewart and Mary Paulina Haarer
with certificates of standing. Mr. John
F. Smith (teacher at the 'labriola South
School) obtained a First Class Grade B
certificate, Miss Minerva G. McKay;
teacher at Easl. Wellington) took a Third
Class Grade A and Miss Lucy A. Mobine j
1 teacher at the Boys' School, Naaaimo)
gained a Third Class Grade B certificate.
Vll of these obtained good averages in.|
the several classes they essayed, whicli
reflects great credit on this city, which

Victoria Crescent, This runt, though
one of the latest additions to tba city,
has shewn much push and enterprise as
to be already a by-word among citizens
for cheapness and the attentive manner
of employees to customers.
Miss Randle, who has charge of  tbe
millinery department, has one of the
finest selections of ladies furnishings to
he obtained in the province and, over
and above the large slock at her disposal, Miss Handle is credited with an
eye for the blending of colors and general effect that should be one of the first
requisites to be looked for in a milliner.
The whole store is decorated in such a
manner as to attract the attention of
persons who have been accustomed to
seeing neat and artistic show windows in
large cities.
