A  SENSATIONAl   STATEMENT.

Malloy, Home' Rule member of the commons for Berry, in a speech atMarlebone
last evening, stated that Parnellites possessed undoubted evidence of the existence of a conspiracy behind Pigott, of

when published, as it will be at thc proper time. It was intended, he said, to
ay all factB before the Parnell Commission, where they could be thoroughly
sifted by counsel on both sides, and their
importance duly weighed; but Judge
Hannen's outrageous ruling prevented
this plan from being carried out.
THE RIVAL LIBOR CONQRE8SES.
The Possibilists met again at Paris today and continued the discussion of yesterday, when the condition of the working classes in the different countries of
the civilized world was taken up. Tomorrow the subject of international legislation for the amelioration of the condition of wage-workers will be taken up.
The Marxists devoted the greater part
of to-day's session to the reading of reports from various nations represented
upon the progress made by the Socialists'
propaganda within the year. The two
tactions still meet in separate balls, and
the prospect is that thev will continue to
do so, there being apparently some insur

A .'leuarch ot the f'oreat.
The San Francisco Alto says i On Friday last, near the weBt bank oi Austin
creek, the ruthless woodman's axe laid
low one of nature's kingliest growths.
For a thousand years his vegetable majesty had lifted his proud head annually
nearer to the clouds, and taken upon
himself month by month, more and more
of that colossal bulk whicli marks the
true forest king. It measured thirty-
eight feet in girth three feet above the
ground, and was 310 feet high. It took
two accomplished axemen, with the best
of modern tools, nearly a day and a quarter to cut it away to a point where its
own vast weight caused it to topple to its
fall.
With that wonderful skill which only
long experience gives, these western axe
men, under the direction of Foreman
Soper, laid the monster so exactly as to
drive a stake previously set 200 feet from
its base, on the bank of the creek. Even
at that point the great tree was over 20
feet around, and the upper 100 feet
crashed down across the creek, swept
down the telegraph line, snapped two
telegraph poles short off, and fell across
the railway track of the North Pacific
Coast railroad. The fall shook the earth
in a local earthquake felt half a mile oft,
sent up clouds of dust, completely obscuring the great trunk, and sent forth a
report like heavy artillery.

WILL VISIT ENGLAND.
Washington, D.C., July 18.—Sir Juliau
Paunceforte, British Minister, was at the
State Department to-day bidding goodbye to Acting Secretary Wharton and to
Walker Blaine, preparatory to leaving
the city for New York, from whence he
sails on Saturday for England. While in
his own country Sir Julian will arrange
his affairs and in the fall will return to
America with his family. He speaks
highly of tne United States and of the
manner in which he has been entertained
while here.
BubU Fire ou Newcastle Towusite.
The fire that is burning on Newcastle
Townsite is not reported as dangerous,
as if it follows the direction it is at preB-
ent taking the worst it can do is to burn
down the Siwash shanties and, well, perhaps no one would grumble very much
at that, especially the owners of the
property.
A   CHK'AGu   BHD?   VAHD.
Chicago, July 18.—O. W. Pottei oi the
Illinois Steel Co., said yesterday, concerning the proposed ship yard for Chicago : "The Illinois Steel Co. aims at a diversity of the product and does hope to
aid in the construction of steel ships in
Chicago, but our plans have not taken
definite shape. Mr. Morse has been east
attending negotiations and on his return
he will tell you just what has been accomplished. But the Minnesota Iron Co.
has not appointed any man to superintend the work here. We have not got so
far along as that. The company is in
Bhape to ship one million tons of ore a
year, and as moot of this ore goes to the
east it ia shipped by water to Lake Erie
ports. It needs large ships to carry this
ore, and has concluded that it must have
them. We think these vessels might as
well be built in Chicago as in Detroit or
Cleveland, and a yard will probably be
located at South Chicago.
CAR SHOPS BURNER.
Wabash, Ind., July 18.—At Butler yesterday a fire almost entirely destroyed
the extensive car shops ofthe Wabash
road. Valuable machinery and several
fine cars were also consumed. The loss
will reach nearly $100,000. Over one
hundred men are thrown out of work.
NO DIVIDEND.
New Yoik, July 18—The Northern
Pacific directors, at their monthly meeting to-day, did not declare a dividend on
preferred stock, but agreed to formulate
a promise of a dividend, such as was
made in 1887,when the stockholders consented to accept an issue of three
mortgage bonds in lieu of dividends.
The plan is to iBSue "Ho.000,000 of new
bondB, but no details will be given out at
present.
RAILROAD   PURCHASED.
New York, July 18.—It was asserted in
Wall Street to-day that the Missouri-
Pacific had actually bought the Alton,
and that $2,000,000 of the purchase money
had already been paid over to bind the
bargain. Bankers through whom the deal
ia supposed to be in progress, refused to
talk on the subject. The report was sufficiently believed, however, to cause a
decline iu Richmond Terminal, which
has hitherto received the business of the
Gould system for carriage east of the Mississippi. It is rumored that Gould recently sold his 60,000 shares of Terminal.
FATAL BOILER EXPLOSION.
Chicago, July 18.—About 8;30 this
morning a boiler connected with R. B.
Hone & Co.'s planing mill, Blue Island
and Hayne avenues, exploded. The following workmen were instantly killed:
Jefferson King, fireman; Albert Dollar,
laborer; FredBeiffle,teamster. A Jloien
men around the place were burned and
cut, but none of them are thought to be
fatally hurt. The building in which the
boiler was located was blown to pieces and
the windows in tho neighboring buildingB

Association tor anproval.
NEWSPAPERS  CANNOT  REPORT EXECUTIONS.
St. Paul, July 18.—At the request of
Governor Merriam, Attorney-General
Clapp has rendered au opinion upon the
John Day Smith law to regulate executions, and he pronounces it constitutional. The law becomes of interest, as it
will be tested for the first time on Friday
when Albert Bulow will be hanged at
Little Falls. The law proviales that no
newspaper lie represented at executions,
and that no paper shall print any facts
about them except the hour of the oc-
I currence. -Newspapers have arranged to
print extended reports.
TO  BE    DECIDED    BY    A    SEUIIET    BALLOT.
Brazil, Ind., July 18.—The executive
I committee of the striking coal miners has

| ference with the operators with a eteret
j ballot of the miners taken from the different mines to-day.    Numerous  complaints of intimidation are made of tbe
: vote taken some days ago.   It is believed
that a secret ballot will end the strike.

DIDN'T KNOW IT WAB LOADED.
Oakland, July 18—John Curley, thirteen years of age, has been arrested
charged with the murder of Albert Wagner, the butcher who was found dead
near a saloon with a bullet wound in his
breast yesterday afternoon. The boy has
confessed to the killing of Wagner. He
says the latter came into the saloon
where he (the boy) is employed, and on
being refuseil a drink, commenced to
abuse him. Curley took a gun, pointed
it at Wagner and pulled the trigger, supposing the gun was not loaded, as he
thought it had been discharged a few
days before. The boy is much affected
over the crime he has committed.

THE CUPID SINEB AT SSA.
New York. July 18.—Capt. Munro, of
the bark Belt, from Windsor, N.S., arrived to-day from Loudon. He reports
that on June 25th, in latitude 44 deg. 28
min,, longitude 30 deg. 40 min., he fell in
with the bark Cupid, Norwegian, from
Bowick Head, Scotland, in ballast for
Weymouth, N. S., in a sinking condition,
she having eight feet of water in her
hold,  and took off the captain and his
gift. The request of Lord Dunraven for

NANAIMO AS  A   FIELD  FOR   INVESTMENT.
Few towns on ibis coast—al least uut-
si..!.' the territory of the United States-
have made more rapid strides during tlio
last few years than has Nanaimo. Fortunately the remarkable improvemenl In
nude which has been going on tor the
past four or live years, bas nut been accompanied by anything approaching wild
.-peculation, such, for Instance, as under
similar conditions, has occurred in Winnipeg, or to go South, in Los Angeles or
San Diego. "Booms" invariably have an
ultimately retarding effect upon the progress of the town a,r district iu which
they have their birth. Sooner or later
the crash comes, followed by enormous
loss and misery to the majority, I hough,
uf course, some few of l lie land-sharks
clear nut with whole-skins and I'ull-
pocketB. Unquestionably the steady development of the natural resources of any
place will give a far more enduring basis
to its prosperity in the long run. than
any amount of hot-house forcing. Any
person who knew the Nanaimo of say
seven or eight years ago, would lind it,
difficult to realise that the Nanai ino of today is the same place. New and broad
streets hove been literally carved out of
the primeval forest. Substantial and
tastefully-built dwelling bouses have
sprung up on all sides. New stores are
being constantly opened, this latter fact
counting for more in our city's prosperity
than mav at lirst be imagined. The old
order nf things is fast dying out. II is
not sn very long ago that Nanaimo had
the reputation of beingn very expensive
town in which to live, owing to the high
prices charged both for llio necessaries
and luxuries nf life. As we have said,
this state of things is fast becoming a
tradition. Store-keepers have been
forced by competition and the Increased
facilities of communication to be largely
ruled by Victoria prices. So soon as we
get daily communication with Vancouver
—and the day is al baud—prices must
perforce be regulated by those obtaining
in the C. P. R. terminus. This, so far
from injuring our merchants and
traders, will, wc contend, hove quite the
contrary effect. In communities such as
this, where all are more or less working
bees, many peoplo who have to consider
ways ami means, have in the past " gone
by " our local tradesmen anal purchased
their requirements elsewhere. Now there
is but small occasion ior tbem lo resort
in such measures, and in the near future,
as we have said, there will be still less.
This stea.lv decrease in the cost of living
is one nf the most important factors, we
believe, in the ultimate advancement ol
this or any other lown, and as soon as
the railroad is pushed on to Comox there
will be an almost immediate influx of
people, who must of necessity draw the
chief part of their supplies from Nanaimo. Railway building in this Province
is still in its infancy, which means, of
course, that ere long there will be a
steady demand for iron and steel, and
what locality offers the same advantages
for their production ns does our own ?
The value of the transfers nf real estate
constantly shows an increase over the
corresponding periods of previous years.
Hitherto capital, that sine ytia non in the
development of new countries, has been
only obtainable at abnormally high rates
of interest. Tn a certain extent this is
still the case, though money is fast finding ils level here os elsewhere, and enn
now be borrowed on fairly reasonable
terms. Beyond all manner of doubt the
purely commercial conditions of Nanaimo are highly favorable. Trade, as we
have said, is improving in all directions;
railway earnings are increasing at a rapid
rate (and tbere is nn better tost of a
country's prosperity); confidence in the
future is high. One fact alone speaks
volumes for the financial stability of our
citizens, namely, the abnormally few
failures which have taken place. Ill nd-
ilitinn tn the advantages recapitulated
above, Nanaimo has the added merit, regarded ns a place nt residence, of picturesque scenery, an unsurpassed harbor, a
salubrious climate, ami unbounded
mineral resources j whilst those wishing
lo enjoy the recreation of spoil, cither on
water or in forest or meadow, can easily
procure such enjoyment tn their fill,
sentence. No doubt, ii a man wlio was
helplessly intoxicated staggered against
another, and knocked him down, whereby lie was killed, ii would not be murder;
bin il is probable thai in such a case the
push would nol be the prisoner's act, and
that he would not be guilt}' of felony at
all.   Short of this, drunkenness would
[ make no difference.    If one man shoots
, another, aiming at him intentionally, and
kills him, that is murder, though tbe
criminal may ba' -n drunk as to know
j nothing oi whal he is doing, and remember nothing of il  afterwards.     Mr.
i Justice Cave'* doctrine is full of dangerous possibilities.    A less serious matter
j engaged Mr. D'Etncoubt'h alleiition at
the Westminster Police Court. A drayman,   who   bad  been  three  months  in
hospital, stated that his wife bod taken
j advantage nf his enforced absence to give
l him a cause oi action in the Divorce Division of the High Court, and lie wanted
i relief from his marriage bonds, lie was
told that he must go to the High Court,
ami thai il would cosl him .£10. He sig-
I nilied that lhc Ull) was as great an obstacle to him as the 41,700 was in Mr.
I Justice Main's famous bigamist, and
left the Court In despair, it certainly
ought to be possible to gel a divorce,
I when the fads are admitted, at a lower
'figure; though perhaps in some parts of
I the I'nited States the low-makers have
j goiif to the opposite extreme.
OUR CIVIL SERVANTS.
Then, is a tradition—a tolerably old
one we believe—which requires that
whoever speaks of the Civil Servants of
this or any other country should take it
for grained thai there are too many of
them, that they do too little, and are
paid too much, The victims of theBe
jokes never sn far as we know, come forward to contradict them; doubtless feeling secure in the palpable absurdity of
such charges, more especially with regard
to pay, at least within the Dominion of
Canada. A considerable portion of the
public always has grumbled and always
will. Neither does il see any reason
why it should not, as regarding itself as
the Employer il considers it has the
right to criticize. It niar be that occa-
Bionol irritation is caused even by the
older and most faithful servants, who like
all members of that important body,
though they do Iheir work well, persist
in doing it their own wav. Though it
may occasionally grumble, the country
knows in the main it ia well served. The
proof of its confidence is that it is—like
all new countries—constantly adding lo
the number of its officers and clerks.
For the rest, Civil Servants do uot appear to us to have cause to complain
very bitterly. If they do not reach such
prizes as successful lawyers, or lucky
tradesmen, they have what no profession can give—which is security. Besides, how many lawyers are raised to
the Bench ? how many business men
gain large fortunes'.'—and, finally, how
many Civil Servants would have come to
the front rank in the scramble of a profession or trade? In this country, if not
in the States, the Civil Servant at least
knows that accident or foiling health
neeal not mean ruin to him as it might
to the lawyer or merchant. He has a
first claim on thc revenue during good
behaviour. In spite of these advantages,
he is fully entitled to be thanked for the
good work be does. Readiness to do
extra work at a pinch, absolute loyalty
to the office, ond to felio'V-servants, are
qualities whicli all can admire and esteem. Occasionally we admit that in England there ore to be found in the public
offices employees who find more difficulty in holding their longues than in
j the capacity to do the work required of
them.     Perhaps   in    this  country   the
' knowledge   of   bow  to be  silent is uot
I quite so absolute a necessity as in those
of more importance, where critics some-
| times complain that Cabinet Ministers
are only the mouthpieces of their oflice.
How far this charge is true may perhaps
be best estimated by tlie perceptible difference between the solidity of some honorable gentlemen when in office and tbeir
extreme vacuity when out of it.
M ISC EL L A NEOI IS NO TBS.
ENGLISH    VERSUS   UNITED
STATES   LAW.
II has become such a stereotyped remark in Great Britain and ber anionics
that justice is administered with a more
even hand in those countries which acknowledge Queen Victoria as their sovereign than in the Stoles, that one is apt
lo accept such statements as true without
first enquiring if tills is really the case.
Let us take one or two caBea of the administration of justice In England and
see whether they bear oul Ibe well-known
formula that "Law is the epitome of common sense''. A man was recently tried
at Warwick Assizes before Mr. Justice
Cave on a charge nf murder—counsel for
the prisoner suggested that be (the prisoner; was drunk at the lime of the
shooting, and the Judge is reported to
have said: "Drunkenness may in some
cases reduce the crime tn manslaughter,
if the prisoner is so drunk as not to know
what lie is doing; but mere excitement
from drink is not sufficient." We should
very much like lo know Mr, Justice
Cave's authority fnr the first part nf this
At last Australia has evolved a great
singer—the critics say a possible rival to
"Patti. Madame Melba, the new prima
donna, has recently appeared at the
Grand Opera House ir. Paris with remarkable success. Melba is a nom de
theatre, formed of a portion of the name
of her native city, Melbourne, just as
! that of Madame Albani was taken from
Albany, her birthplace. Madame Melba
is a daughter of Mr. David Mitchell, of
Melbourne, and is married to Mr. Chas.
Armstrong, » younger son of a titled
family. Madame Melba is not only a vn-
i-nliHt and operatic artist of phenomenal
powers, but is n thorough musician and
an excellent pianist und organist. She
was educated at the PreHbyterian Ladies'
Collego, Easl Melbourne, where the lady
who instructed her iu singing failed lo
discover tbe remarkable talent and quality ol' voice possessed by ber pupil, and
actually taught her contralto songs.
Every public appearance made by her
intensitieil the impression already produced, and caused judicious friends to

exercise of her talent by going to Europe.
This she did about three years ago. The
result has been on Unqualified success.

mats, it is divided into two compartments by a strong stone wall; Iwo large
tigers, brother and sister, ocenpyingone
port, and iw.. females and a male living
iii the other. Al the side of the dividing
wall is a little iron gate, protected by a
door of ihe same material. When this
door is drawn aside the animals in cither
compartment are enabled lo see and feel
each other. Recently they have been
allowed this privilege. On Friday afternoon, May 17, lhc large male tiger wns
peacefully enjoying his dinner near thc
small gale, when one of the females in
the adjoining cage brought her bones
and meal up lo the bars on the other
side. Stretching out bis paw the mole
tiger endeavored to obtain the
meat of bis companion. Not siia'-
ceeding, be waxed wrath, and exerting all bis Immense strength,
he lure the gale bodily oul of the wall,
seized Ihe female and dragged her into
his den. Striking his opponent a terrific
blow with his paw, which caused hor lo
roll on the Iloor, he put his two paws
firmly a>n the body, and bit her severely
just above the eye, causing a wound
about two inches deep. At thii juncture
the keepers, judging by the roar of the
beasts thnt there was something wrong,
ran up, and by means of poles separated
the infuriated animals. Tbe female tiger
maile a gallant effort to rise, then with a
groan fell back. In about 10 minutes
from the beginning of the affray the animal died. Dr. Minchin says that the
iron door has been drawn aside for breeding purposes nn several previous occasions, and no accident had occurred. In
the present case no one is to blame. The
animal killed was a present from tbe
municipal council of Madras. Four tigers
are now left, which is considered a sufficient number. It is a curious fact tfcat
neither of the deceased's friends came to
her assistance, while the otlier tiger received the support of his sister. The
museum will be presented with the body
of the dead animal.

There is iu one of the corset manuf actoriea
of Now York a little blonde haired woman ,
who has for many years made a specialty of
men's corsets, and has established an extensive business In a western city.   She had a
man trained to take the measures and fit the
corsets, and frequently she or ber forewoman
never saw the customers for whom they !
made corsets regularly.   It is a very paying :
business, for men rarely question the price !
of an article they wish  to purchase, and '
men's corsets are always made to order and
never kept in stock.   A woman tho shape of ,
a tub and a woman the shape of a broomstick

sizes, and somehow fit herself Into them; but

They do not differ materially from a worn- I
ati's corset in construction, being made of the j
same material, only with heavier bones and !
stronger steels.   They differ very materially ,
in shape, however, being shorter aud nearly
straight up and tlown, though the constant
wearing of the corsets conduces to add fullness of   chest,   which compensates for the
pretty  bust curve and slope to a woman's
waist.   They are usually made of gray sateen

Two tiood Stories.
Congressman John Alien, of Mississippi,
says that tho mendicants of Washington
uumca. hint very much, and thnt, while they
do not often "get uway with him," one did
prove too much for htm the other day. "I
was sauntering down Pennsylvania avenue,1'

saunter when the weather will permit—and 1
was tackled by four beggars before I had
walked eight biocks. The first >ne addressed
mo as 'captain.' But ho didn't reach me.
Tbo next ono, who looked awfully troubled,
and who sworo ho hadn't had a mouthful to
eat all day, addressed me as "major.* But
that wouldn't work. Then a fellow touched
me on the arm and called me 'judge;' bnt ho,
too, failed completely to reach my pocket-
book. Finally, just as I was wondering
whether I should go Into the senate chamber
and find out who were getting the big plums
under this administration, a seedy looking
fellow stepped right in front of me and said:
" 'Senator, I won't detain you bnt a moment.   1 am iu hard luck'	
"And before I know it that little piece of
flattery had yanked a quarter of a dollar out

measure* which Is taken very carefully; one
for the fitting, when only half the bones are
In and the steels basted in place, and one for
the final examination, when everything ls
finished. After one perfectly fitting corset
has been made, however, only one fitting is
required.
Corsets ore worn most by actors, the fit of
whose garments furnishes at present a large
proportion of their stock lu trade. Then
there are clerks who sit bending over desks
all day and half the night, to whom corsets
are frequently recommended by their physicians as a help toward straightening their
curved spines, men who from some injury or
physical imperfections are obliged to wear
them, and a fair percentage of dudes who rejoice in a small waist and a smoothly fitting
i coat. An ambitious cutter in one of the
swoll establishments, where a suit of clothes
may be purchased for the price of a brown
stono block, has an idea of winning an heiress
for his wife at some popular summer resort
where he spends his vacations, and accordingly arrays himselt In all the elegance the
establishment affords, hooks himself into a
double boned corset, and lays siege to the
hearts of the fair ones. Before he adopted
tbe corset be buckled a broad belt of heavy
leather about his body at the waist, but as he
grew stout tbls expedient lost Its efficacy.
A man's corsets are as readily detected by
his fellow men as the faintest touch of ronge
on a woman's faco u always discovered by
her sister woman. Gentlemen say that a man
In corsets* goes up elniraa Ittn a woman and
walks differently, and that if you observe
hlgs> closely for a few minutes he will give a
little peculiar hitch to bis shoulders, as if he
were endeavoring to pull himself up out of
tho corsets. It wss by watching Berry Wall
mount a flight of stairs that lt was fully determined thet he was laced Into a snugly
fitting corset. His wife accompanied him,
and they mode the same motions in the ascent.
Both the king dude and his roily poly little
chum wore corsets regularly on important
occasions. It was at Mme. Griswald's ou
Broadway that the pink haired dude returned
a pair of baby blue satin corsets trimmed
with lace, after they had been fitted three
times, to have them made a half an inch
smaller, and bis anxious perplexity was very
amusing to the mischievous merry maiden
who fitted them on.
THK PRINCE W -IBS THEU.
It is no secret tbat Osmond Tearle wore
corsets, and that Eyrie Bellew wears them
still. The noble Antony has them made In
London In a little shop in Conduit street.
They aro not trimmed with pink lace or embellished with embroidery, which is the only
surprising thing about them, but they are
delklously small and very short, not more
than six or eight Inches up and down.
Tn the same shop the Duke of Beaufort has
pink satin, lace edged corsets, which he
makes no secret of wearing, manufactured
and embroidered with his monogram surmounted by a ducal coronet. He ls an old,
decrepit man, with a wrinkled yellow face
and a fringe ot white whiskers, and so bent
over with age that the line of his corsets Is
plainly discernible through his dress coat.
It Is said that the Prince ot Wales affects
them, too, and that that Is why he has abandoned horseback riding. Corsets are worn
quite extensively by men in Paris, and all
the handsome officers hi tha German army
wear corsets under their uniforms.
Though corsets are worn by men In New
York, It ls extremely difficult to find out
where they are made There ls no special
manufactory for them, and though most of
the first class corset places receive orders for
them occasionally, they are very reticent on
the subject, for any publicity given to the
fact would destroy the burin.as altogether.
There ls one bright woman corset maker on
Fourteenth street wbo advertises to make a
specialty of men's corset* and receives a
great many orders, which she fills simply by
taking women's corsets of large else and removing the gores In the bust and taking out
some of the fullness at the hips. Merchant
tailors would hall with delight the general use
of com/is. as they would render the fitting ot
garments much easier, and enable them to
keep smooth and In shape much longer.
It Is the stout men who take to tbem most
kindly and who suffer most In wearing them,
aud it la hinted that two of the handsomest
"drees coat actors" In New York resort tc
their use on the stage. Watch the man wbo
never leans back comfortably In his chair,
whose coat does not pull tn lines at every
button or gradually work up toward hh
shoulders, and whose chert Is unusually
round and full, and lt he seems at interval!
to be pulling himselt up out of his garments
by the shoulders and goes upstairs with an
Inflexible back, you may safely infer that h.

[Dr. L. H. Wat-ion In Poi'iilar Science Month.,-.] i
The kind of food to be eaten  varies with j
the coiiditLoii.    If an old person needi build- |
ing up, tho more nutritive  foods, that   is,
thou    containing    the   greatest    amount
of nourishment to  a  given   volume,   the j
greatest proportion of assimilative matter. '
If, on the contrary, it ii necessary to encourage the digestive action, we should select stimulating food.   Coffee is a natural
drink for the aged,    its mildly stimulating,
soothing qualities directly indicate  it as a
beverage for the old.    Gasparin tells us that
coffee has ;the  property  of   rendering   ele
ment-i of the body more stable, and thus, if
not affording nourishment, it diminishes the
waste-t going on.
The origin of many dyspepsias iu the old
will be found in 'he lack of the propel
means for tbe complete mastication of their
food. The loss of their teeth will often entail a long train of ills. A set of false teeth
will sometimes remove dispeptlc troubles ot
long standing. Mastication must be well
performed, even if the food is not very
solid. The one golden rule is to eat slowly.
Home old people bave peculiar fancies
about certain foods, which must not be
overlooked. Milk Is one of the most easily
digested of foods, on account of its various
constituents, and can be taken when notb
ing else is perinfcsable. Eggs, soft boiled or
raw, are easily digested. Oysters, Hah and
lamb follow fn about the order named. Beef,
mutton and fowls and wheaten bread occupy
about tbe same time in digestion.
The two forms of dyspepsia most frequently met iu old people are the acid form,
where there U an excess of acid found in
the stomaou, and the atonic form, wheir
there is a sluggish action of tbe mucus
tnembrance of Lhe stomach, and the time for
digestion is greatly lengthened. In acid
dyspepsia Dr. Ringer recommends the use
of glycerine, stating that an old gentleman,
learning that glycerine prevented milk from
turning sour, concluded that it would bt*
just tbe thing to prevent himself from turn*
Ing sour. Glycerine, combined with powdered charcoal, has achieved success in
remedying this form of dyspepsia. Artificial acids immediately after meals, breaking
up the weaker acids and affording the natural acids of the stomach, is an exceedingly
useful remedy.
Tho atonic form of dyspepsia, combined
with loss of appetite, requires a different
treatment The stomach is feeble aud need}
stimulating. Two or three grains of capsicum, with one-half grain of aloes, in tx cap.
sole, will excite it to action, The constipation wbich often accompanies this form will
be obviated. When there are accumulations of gas, charcoal tablets, an hour 01
two after meals, generally give relief, but it
Is not a good plan to keep up their use permanently, as It tends somewhat toward*
constipation.
Electricity is a great tonic for these debilitated, relaxed stomachs. The apathetic
condition of the intestinal track is dissipated, the liver pours out its bile and life
seems to move on again. Alkalies taken be
fore meals stimulate the flow of the gastric
Juices. Slight fatigue often spoils the appetite and lowers the digestive power.
Couldn't Eat Corn from a Cob.
[San Francisco Chronicle.]
There was a little dinner party the other
night, and the fresh cobs of smiling corn
were very tempting. Tbey were handed
round. One young gentleman started
vigorously in to eat it from the cob. There
was a kind of a lull all around the table.
There was a little hesitancy about touching
that corn. The young gentleman kept on
joying it immensely. This went on for a
long time, and finally one lady took a cot
and began cutting It off.
"I like to cut it off first with a knife,"
said.
"So do i," said nearly everybody else, and
good humor immediately reigned.
"I think corn tastes much better," said a
man on one side of the table, "when you cul
it.    I never could eat corn from the cob."
"Nor I," was a little chorus.
"Beside?, it does not look nice."
"No."
The young gentleman who had been eat*
ing It straight grew slightly uneasy. But a
quiet fellow who was away at the other end
said in a kind of adiving-beli voice: "I can1!
•at corn from the cob, either, because I've
got two false teeth, and T can never tell tbe
corn from the teeth."
And everybody got red in tha face aud
laughed "Ha, ha."
A •35,000 Painting.
[The Current.]
The picture by Melssonier called "The Vedette," which recently brought $35,000 in
Chicago, gets much of itst distinction from
being larger than most of the successful
French painter's productions. The vedette
is on his horse, aud the horse b exactly
facing the spectator. Tho picture of tbe animal is excellent—great—but strikes a western man as portraying a more valuable
hone than any picket would be likely to
want Tbe painting might be cut down in
tite to small dimensions, as it gets most of
its compass through a background and sky
which are devoid of the slightest interest
and could not have cost the artist an hour's
work. The picture is made large on the
theory, supposably, that a dramatic effect
is produced by the baldness of the surround-
iug*-. It is a good theory for Melssonier.
and has prevailed, It seems, in the artistic
world.        	
A Georgia Snake Story.
[Eastman <.Qa.) Journal.]
A coach whip was perched upou a limb iu
a tall tree. Perched upon another limb,
thirteen feet above the snake, was a squirrel.
All of a sudden the snake's head shot up
Into tbe air, and he not only took in the
squirrel but snapped the limb, three inches
in diameter, in two. The limb, which held
a nest containing eleven young hawks, fell
to the ground, aud the hawks were all
gulped down by the snake's mate, which
was lying concealed at the foot of the tree.

the East.     As a remedy of general  utility, 1	
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 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 Diarrho;,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
NV'iralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a* „ general Sedative, that have oenarred
und^T our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used cny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj
fession and the public, as we ire ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE

The Vancouver syndicate have ultimately decided not to go on with the

sincere regret that such a decision should I j0e the project carried

throw a damper upon till other mining
claims upon the islan.l. Tha' thirteen
men employed by the syndicate have
done very little real work on tlie

one of Vianen's nets, cutting ii

in charge nol being able to read
learn the name of the tug, and being
stupid sort of fellows could give no positive description of it.
The entire fishing lleet wa- at work
sharp at ('. o'clock this morning, and although the big run cannot be said lo
have commenced, still the result of the
• lav's work has been very satisfactory.
Una'of Vianen's boats captured seventy-
one beauties on tlie lirst drift, and many
others were equally as lucky. Reports
from the fleet this afternoon say lhal few
ui the bouts had caught less than 180 fish.
The big run is expected within three or
four .lavs.

Alaska is not only taking tb'- lead in
mining enterprises, but the superior
quality of fish 18 attracting universal attraction from all parts of the United
Stale.-,. The salmon industry is a very
important feature, an.l during Ihe past
year a large number of new canneries
have been established all along the
Alaskan coasl by companies representing
a large capital. It is safe to say lhat the
present yield of Alaska fisheries will be
Ibe greatest eve" known, and Alaska salmon will find a reaily sale in till lhc markets of the world.

Tbe "Lancashire Lass" was played last
night by tbe above company 10 a very
enthusiastic audience. Miss Bcllelnman,
as usual, carried her audience wilb her,
and deservedly sn. Mr. Devlin's impersonation of a tli'iinken man was very good
indeed, and the words "I wish 1 Inula
match," seemed to take the faucy of tlie
audience immensely. To make special
mention of any other individuals would
be invidious, as all deserve praise, but.
we would wisli 10 call attention to the
excellent manner in which Mr. ('. Patterson sustained the role of Mr- Danville.
"A Lancashire Lass" was decidedly
a success.

The fire bell sounded an alarm yestertlay whieh was promptly responded to by
the firemen, wbo came running up  the
slreet  evidently  thinking that   if a lire
started in town, wilb so much wind to as- J
sist it, not much of the city would be left.,
Great relief was experienced when it was
announced lhal ibe cause of the alarm
was   beyond    the   city   limits   on    the
property of a family named Calverly.
The lire originated in the  hush   three'
days ago and had been smoldering ever
since, until the high winds of yesterday
fanned it  Into a  lieive sheet   of flame
whicli licked up everthing, except  large i
logs, iii its course.
After Ihe firemen bad assembled and
the hose cart had been run  out. people [
remembered thai I here was no water in j
the vicinity, lhe streams being airy,  and
although tile main from the water works ;
runs in that direction it was uot tapped.
Afler suggesting lhal lhe hand engine be
run out Ihere, which suggestion did noti
seem lo meet nitli the approval nf Ihe '
men who would have the  task  of drag-
gins the concern over miles ni  bad. billy
roads, it was decided to abandon the idea
of taking any 'if the apparatus io thei
scene of conflagration and several uf the
firemen aiul  citizens  proceeded to  lend
what assistance lay in tlieir power, to the '
unfortunate owners of tho burning property.   On arriving then- it was discovered that pari of lhe fence,  ibe gardon
antl two outhouses belonging to W.  Cal-;
verley bad been burned, and in order to
save the dwelling bouses of W. Calverley ;
and bis brothers the rescueiug party went
to work immediately piling wet earth on i
the roofs and  around  lhc  sides of  lhc |
buildings and to further check the ravages i
of the (ire it was deemed necessary to pull j
down another fence and a portion of another Otithouse.    Hail it  nol been fur lhe
energetic measures adopted by ibe lire-.
I men anil others about fifteen in number),
both dwelling bouses   would  have  been
assuredly destroyed.   Late lasl night the
fire was still travelling south-east, being!
I urged on by a strong wind.     All  danger ■
I is passed, if Ibe wind does nol change,
Three deep wells were emptied  by  lhe
I firemen and Iheir assistants, who deserve
1 great praise ior the prompt  manner iu
which they decided lu go tu the scene of I
the lire, whieh was a long way oul of the ■
cily limits.
