"A military character—one who hat
done wonders in three revolution!."
"Ab 1 see n trj you mean tbat black
rascal, my cook."
'The very pereon. He hat tormented me neatly out of my sentes to take
him with me," I antweied.
"1 wish you had told ,we this bef"rc,
—the ftt rascal. What I have done for
him—f>r be quarrels with most of his
employer.— nnuld take too long to tell.
He get! good wages, very good wages;
and now that he is used to the place,
he wanti to go off."
"I think this tort of thing is tbe fash
ion all the world ovei; but I sh' uld
never have taken the man. I don't
like him," I replied.
•'When ynu are fairly gone, I will
speak to him about hi* conduct. He
never naked my permission, or hinted,
even that he wanted lo leave," returned
Mr. Bahl, with great indignation.
There was not a chance of our being
fairly gnnr yet a«hile; for the boat was
Dot in sight, and there were no preparation* going on either in office or
store; is far as I could see, to expedite
matters. I ventured to remark that it
was getting late.
On ye«," returned the consul; "we
don't mind for an hour or so here. You
so'ii fall into lhe custom of thp
country. There is no fuss and fiVrv,
and things, in tbe long-iun, turn oui
just as well. One of the boatmen has
not come round, but it will all be well.
Just sit down in the office, and wait a
little."
So I tat in the office, and Eduardo
hied to the steps, and was soon in high
gossip with all the loungeri in Amapala.
Anoth :r half-hour passed, and then
the little clerk, seeing that I was getting iinpnlitiit, came from behind his
railed off space, and intornied me that
the boat would be ready very soon; he
hsd heaid ihe boatman's voice. Wouhl
1 not, in the meantime, lake a glass of
beer) Mr. Bahl had desired him to
offer it.
1 wan very bot, and drank the small
glass of Haas's ale with relish; and I was
fuiiht'i quite mollified on seeing the
boat at the landing-place, and Eduardo
pulling in the luggage. There was a
guod deal ut delay uetora all w.,n ready,
but at last Pvniytklng wat on board, and
we were MttMl in the boat ami bound
f r Aceituna.
"You will not be able to get on today," were tbe consul's last words;
"better stay it Aceituna fur the night
and start at day-break to-morrow.
Good-bye. Take care of the Inly
Eduardo." Su saying, the kindly
gcntleimn turned into his office.
Eduardo showed me his contract
paper as we went alung. I had the
origin d in my pocket, havrng signed it,
as well as he, lhe first thing after arriving at the office.
"Mine it a copy, I know; but the
<:• nsul gave it to me, because I want to
show it to my friends when we arrive
ai Comayagua," thn lad Bnid. "I hope
vou will stay a day at Comayagua,
Hino'a,"
"I hope s : vou will hi, able to go
to your friends foi i few hount," I replied.
And if I serve you well, will you
keep me when we arrive at San Pedro
Sul.1"
That I cannot promise; but you
mav be ture tbat 1 will do what I can
to help you. If I cannot retain you, I
daresay other people will require your
services.''
We had now got into the open ire,
and only tbe red roof* and tufted p,lm
trees of Amapala could be seen in the
distance, Tnere was a light wind, and
the fresh air was most invigorating, as
we skirted the mountanout land, which
in some partt wat thickly overgrown
with brushwood and dark herbage; in
others the coast was nearly bare.
The place looked so bleak and
solitary, that I was prompted to ask
one of the boatmen if any wild animals
existed tbere.
"Ob yei," he replied, there are some;
muy malos muy malos" (very evil, very
evilV
"What are tbeir rainesl" I inquired;
for 1 thought here might prove the
solution of the tiger question.
"Serpents—one or two very bad
kindt—and other creaturet."
"What are tbe names of tbe 'other
ortttores'l"
"Tigers  of   the  mountain!.    Ah! I
should not lik» to   walk in   that brush
wood, would yoo, Oandidof
laid   the mm, appealing to hii   fellow-
labourer.
I afterwards learned, from reliable
authority, that what are designated
'tigrei ofthe mountain," are, in reality,
small leopards. But they are 6erce
enough, and in many instances bave
taken human life. The skin of the-e
animals is very beautiful, and forma
sometimes the chief ornament of a
Hondureian house.
Afler an hour's good rowing, the boat
waa turned into a narrow cieek, bordered on either aide with overhanging
treet. This was, in a measure a relief
from the beat of tl* ion, »hich. in
ipite of tbe awning, wai   beginning to
pei.etraie through my bat. Here was
little to interest us, save Himetimet Ibe
having lo exert ounelves in order t"
keep the buuKhs of tbe trees out uf our
facet. The cre-k grew nanower, aire!
at length a abort point of land gave
evi lence that we were in front of lhe
custom-lioute al Aceituna.
CHAPTER   VI.
Mr. Z , ibe cu>toniliouie officer, handed me out of the boat and conducted
me into his dwelling. This wa. a low
lhatched bou-e. separated only by a
moun 1 and a damp patch of grass from
tbe edge of the creek. The entrance
opened upon ihe principal room, which
.as t c mliln.lion of reception and store
room. The udes of the boarded walls
were fitt.d up with tieis of wooden
Mhelvet, and on these lay packages of
all shapes and sizes, bales of cocoa-
nut fibre seemed to predominate; and
several layers of cow-hides made gio»t
«how anil on the l,w shelves. Bushels
of what I supposed to be grain, or seeds
were huddled here and tbere; and a
ureal heap ol white beans, and a
measure on the lop of it, entirely tilled
one corner.
The ground was lhe usual earthen
floor, alamped aa hard as iron, and depressed here and ihere; so much so, that
it required some attention .to walk
safely over it.
A handiOine hammock, ilung from
the rafters of the roofing, and a wooden
lable, were all the furniiuie of this deli, ilinent. For ornament there was
hanging on a nail a large-sized em
broidery frame; upon the canvas of ihis
was in course of representation a very
gav macaw conieiuplaiing some r,-
markably line grapeH. A Berliu-wool-
woik pattern was displayed open on a
nail higher up, and thus could be teen
in its entirety the magnitude of lhe
macaw's temptation.
The custirm-house officer, following;
the direction of my eye, said. "Mi
sposa,—that is her work " Somebody
came to die aperture which divided ihis
apartment fnm an innei one. This
was mi sposa. a preity Indian giil, who
appealed to be many year* younger
than her lord, and who was followed
by a still younger girl, »hom ahe presented to me as her sister. They both
wo,eihe nagua costume, though it differed a little from the stifot Mexican
style. Tne nagua costume consists of a
chrniise, very fully plaited at lhe aims
and lound the shoulders, leaving lhe
thioat bate. A thick strand of hair
generally furnishe- the back expanse
between the nape nf the neck and the
shoulders, and a lh*pelj bodice of some
blight coloui covers the person lo lhe
waist. The Mexican girl here indulges
in petticoats of vniioun leng'.hs lill the
feet are reiiche !, but th"-e Hondoralsn
wi men were content with one short
garment,   comely   enough, but   net s„
pictur sque; and they licked the s Iver
ornament! and embroidery which add
so much to the "makeup" ofthe Mexican lady.
The beautiful eyes arid shapely feet
of the custom house officer's wife, however, were attractive enough; .nd her
cultivaled voice and elegant pronunciation showed that shr had reciveil some
education. I pointed lo her work
frame, and asked her where she had
learned t" embroider.
"A la escuela, muy buena escuela,"
she replied (at t-chool a very good school)
and added, in her beautiful idiom, "my
husband is Knglish; he married me because 1 have had some education."
And foi mor., than tbat, ib'Uglit I,
at I glanced at this elegant cr-Ntnre;
but 1 louk-d very serious and practical,
and remarked in reply that "education
is a grand thug for everyhody."
"Ab, yes," cut in ihe younger sister,
"when it i* properly applied."
I was so astonish, J at ihis remark,
from such a person and in such a place
that I was startled into asking her what
she meant.
I mean that very wicked things are
often done bv   educated   people,"   re
turned the   damsel, wiih a   jeik of her
head.    ' I  have my reasons,"   she con
tinned, "but I will not say more."
"Very wicked things are often d ine,"
I replied, "by people who profes* much
religion, we must not judge by individuals. These matters must be
viewed in abroad and general way."
"No doubt the Senora is right," was
the answer, 'but I have my reasons
Ah, I have heard tome fine tales, about
people from Europe too!"
I daresay she bad; but the subject
dropped as the sister ask"d me to go
into her room and take off my hat.
"You will sleep here " taid she, indicating tbe hammock with her hand, "an I
the guarda casta will look lo yoaxmozo,"
"The guarda costa—what is that!"
•See here," ahe answered, openine
lhe door, which had been kept fist
closed for coolness' «ake; "ihese are
tbo guarda cosla (coast-guard.)
A few very fine-looking men, iome
in ihirtt and drawers, some with jackets
in addition, and all bearing muskets of
a very old-fashioned pattern, were
walking to and fro. One of them, a
temarkably strong-looking man, kept
leuular pace, anil trmiped up .md do n
wiih the rek-ularitv of a Biitisb   sentinel.
M,. Z. here joined us. He said.
"This is the man I propose to send
with you to-mo,row. Will you speak
with me when you bare taken off your
hail I wtnt to tell you what I b«ve
done for the journey."
I retiied with the Senora. Her bed-
mom wu boarded   off from  tbe  room
we had qui'.ted, and quite as miserable
in its accuinmodationa as tie ie>t ofthe
dwell ing.
On reluming to the outer loom, Mr.
Z. asked me to buy    the   animal*   required   fur the journey, and   r
price, which even I, in mv inexperience,
knew to be exorbitant, anil sairl ►,,.
The piice of mules has risen considerably,' urged Mr Z.; "ihej aie
-o much lequiied in ibe mining dis-
iiic*" now "
"Very   possible,  but I will   not buy
unv mules;   I  shall be   happy to  hire
ihose ynu   lime   ns   far us Ariim-sii,'
Mr. Bahl told you in his note the price
I ought to give."

this, and the wife proposed that we
should 00 out and see the aniin.tls.
A coast giuird-niuii brought round
a small chestnut, mare, a nice-looking
creature, but "weedy'' withal.
"Then'," said the euttom-boTJU
officer, "is the one I have arranged
that you shall ride. That belongs to
mi sposa; il is a great pet; mi Iposa often
goes long distances on her without at-
tendance.
In the meadow was a very nice looking macho (male mule), which was
puinted out as being the one fur Edu-
Urdu's use.
"Whew is the baggage-uui1.,■'" I in-
i[uirod.
"Oh, he would oome rrumrl in llie
morning, He was resting in a stable
dote by." Abel, the man who wai to
go with us, grinned. I thought there
wits tome mystery here.
The early dawn, which is lovely in
ihis e,,untrv, brought with its first
glimmer coast guard-men, tlie mare,
the mule, and the baggage.mule; the
latter we were particularly delighted
to sec    To    iny   ainiseineiit    Mr.    '/..
offered t,, sell me the three at a eon
liderable abatement, of the price urged
the ilav before. Fortuiiutely J ad
bored to my resolution of hiring only.
On being mounted, I found that the
pommel of the saddle was fixed im
movably nn the left side. There wai
no time to alter this, and in consequence, on setting >,tl', 1 began to
realise thai it was anything bul pleasant to ride faster tlmn a   walk at lirst.
"Never four. Senora,'' sairl Abe] nt

and if we are to arrive ut   Arimesine

l'eirig no,-list,,ii,ed, or nearly so, to
the motion induced by the difference
between the English  and Spanish way
of mounting, ray confidei   returned,
and I declared myself ready to increase
the speed.
"Wail till we turn off to the left,
Senora; there will be mure shade, and
then we can get on well," Abel re
marked encouragingly.
Eduardo had ridden a good deal in
idvano ■: ns he neared the road turning
tothe left, we saw tbe baggage-mule
suddenly break loose from hii hold, and
dart al" full   s| d   among   the lies.
Eduardo following aa hard ash ruld
gallop.
This made the   mare a little restive,
but Abel's strong linn subdued her.
"Let us turn into the   left path," said
he; "ynu will have to dismount and
wail whilst I go on. The baggage-mule
has bolted.'
Tuning into the road on the left,
which war. n little more than a bridle
path through shrubs and nice sof I grasi
the man dismounted me, at tbe same
time tying the mare to a low bus)
There "was plenty of grass, and so this
one of the   party,   at least,    was   very
much nt ease.
"You won't mind being left a short
time," said Abel: "it is quite safe. 1
iiad better tollow Eduardo quick. Ah.
it was time," he said, returning with
tomething in his hand. It was m>
dressing-comb, tn two parts, and full
of dirt and sand.
I iicciniipanied him a little way, and
had the pleasure of picking up one of
mjr slippers, part of a little book, and
nianv    other    thing!    with    which ,ny
handbag had been packed. Further on
lay inv long tin box, unfastened, in
deed, but stove in by what was un
mistakably a violently kick in the
wrong direction.
"Ah." said Abel, contemplating this.
:-the mule is wild; lie hns rushed against
the trees, and the baggage has got
loose: I hope there is no accident
Senora, 1 am sorry to leave you alone,
but 1 had   better' get on to Eduardo."
So he sped away at a dying swing-
trot, and I was left literally to pick up
he pieces.
A little farther on was what 1 re
cognized to he a shirt which I had
ought at Senor Bald's store to present
to Eduardo. The boy was so delighted
■vith it, that lie had said he would wear
it when he nrrived at Coniayagnn to
visit his friends. Here it was. then,
ia pieces, and a part of it torn quite
out. The ground bore marks of hoofs
in all directions.
All the little things I had collected
for refreshment on the road were de
stroyed without mercy. Here some
biscuits ground to powder, and amalgamating freely with mother earth;
there some plantains and bananos reduced to pulp; in another place was
my tin of portable soup, stove in, and
nlmost unrecognisable.
Fortunately, perhaps, 1 hail so much
to do in getting these fragments together, that I had scarcely time to
think how unlucky this first start of
mine had been. Two hours at least
would have  been wasted,   and there
which jutted out on the principal path
came iwo quiet-looking men towards
me. Lifting his sombrero (that ugly
thing the hat proper, is unknown in
Honduras), the elder of thein said:
"We are sent to help you, Senora,
English lady. We have met Abel and
the mow. Mule very bad—very savage; won't allow itself to be loaded
again. Abel thought you would alio.,
us to take you on. We are woodcutter.-,
and Abel knows us.''
I turned to mount, the younger lad
helping me.   As I did so. I expressed
u hope that Eduardo was not hurt.
"No; he is a good rider, and the other
mule behaved well. But how are you
to get on—oi.ien salt.-' That the mule
is eldemomo himself."
The men took the long box between
them, and a panel was made of the
dibris. We soon reached Abel and the
Ind, who were Eitting on a little bank.
The riding mule was browsing calmly
enough: the baggagc-aiiiiual was tied to
a tree, and   was   still   stamping   with
rage.
"What are we to do?" I inquired
in   despair.   "Had we not better go
back'"
"We will try and see if the baggage
inul" will bear loading again," said
Ab,!; "it -would be such a loss to return.    We will try."
The four men approached the offender, and were most gentle in their
treatment. All was to no purpose
As toon as be bit the load on his buck,
he started violently, and rushed against
the tree, with the determined purpose
ni pushing it off. Abel now pulled out
ins  naiKiKerctier ana   Dundfolded tho
ahiiii.il.
This had the effect of quieting it,
and as it was nearly exhausted from
kicking, the load was replaced without much exhibition ,,f feeling on the
sufferer's part.
Everything being packed, we went
on our wiry, one of the woodoutt, rs un
dertaking to 1 ad the refractory mule.
As lung as we went slowly all was satisfactory; but the moment we attempted to gel „ut of a walk the mule
showed light. Ecu the baggage was
of ii" ro rul.
The woodcutters were obliged to
leave us; they had their work in an
other direction, und they could not
l,,sc time, "1 am very sorry—very
inn. h ashamed," said tne elder, with
em] ha ;- oi tic !ast word, "thai the
custom bou ■" officer should have let
you hire that beast It is a c
the mull is not half bnrki n: it is quite
young, and I do nol think il has carried a load more than thrice in its
life."
"Al el hns ii"' told me that," saiii
I.
"How should he.'   lie is   a
and ho bas to obej the custon
he must   nol spi rik: bm be  knowi u
well as 1 do that tl nature doei nol
belong I" tli.- customs oilier. Scimr
'/,. hns hired it from a oharcoal burni i
who lives near him, and I haw no
doubt lie has made a good thing of it.
You have paid beforehand!"
"Ves; 1 have hind those three animals to take us to Arimesine."
"May you get there to night! Adws,
Senora; muehas gracias," as 1 put a
irille in his hand. Thus speaking, our
two assistants wended their way.
The situation was certainly very unsatisfactory, and Abel's replies to my
inquiries did not te-ul to enliven mat
ters. "At this rate," the man said.
"Wc shall never reach Arimesine tonight: and J am under orders to bring
back the animals early to-morrow
morning.'
'•But the delay is entirely your master's fault; he had no right to give me
an unbroken animal to carry the baggage. If we cannot reach Arimesine
to-night, what are we to do!"
"We must stay at a place called
tJoascaron; the head man there will
take vou in. He is at Italian doctor,
and keeps a store. Oh, my iruta—mv
hula'." ihorrid brute) broke off' Abel,
as the mule turned sharp round and
literally ploughed up the earth with its
feet, refusing to stir, though Eduardo
dragged it with all his strength.
Here was a nice state of things! It
was equally impossible to advance or
retire. Fortunately, as we were consulting whether we really ought to return to Aceituna, we met a countryman, who was riding a nice-looking
mule. To him Abel hastened with all
speed. A short conference, and matters
were to go on well-oiled wheels I hoped.
The baggage was transferred from the
refractory baggage-mule to the consul's riding-mule, and the countryman
lent his animals for our use.

Mr. Edgar Vincent, the brother
Howard Vincent, the recently retired

M. Vrignot, a smart young Parisian
thief, finding himself discovered when
intent on lead stealing promptly entered a bouse by a skylight and requested
a young woman at her sewing machine
to save him. ''I'll sit bere and peel
these potatoes, and when tbe pollen
come tney will conclude that ,' am your
lover." At ihis Interesting juncture
the police oame, and oue collared blin
on "spec," exclaiming, "tint you nt
last, my hoy."    "You hear,   my   pel,"
saul Vrignot; "these gentlemen mistake
tno for some other fellow." Miss Melanin, however, wbo "was not fascinated
with her Impromptu adorer, muintaim d
an ominous silence,, and the would-be
lover was led off to jail.
Tbe Kussi.in cemetery at Sebaatopol
would he considered a handsome necropolis anywhere. The men me laid
away in batches in great graves, hut i he
officers lie in separate ones. The tjinhs
in many instances are veritable monuments, Among tbem are a column and
bust over the remains, of Prince Qoft-
chakoff, Commander-in-Chief of ths
I,'us-ian foroei iii the Crimea, who died
in Warsaw tn 1801, bnt who "desired to
be buried rrmiu those defenders of their
country who did not permit the enemy
to enter their fatherland further than
where their graves stand." Bul tbs
most conspicuous object in the cemetery
is a magnificent memorial chapel ,.f
granite, mari,in, and bronze, in tha form
of a pyramid, over 106 feet high, lhe
walls of which, inside ami out, are covered will, tho names of u I wh , look

Sonic time ago a well-known English
sportsman, who is u devout Roman Catholic, was married to a wealthy Protestant. L,ly. It was agreed that the
children (of whom there were several)
should be educated in the Komuii Catholic faith, The gentleman's speculations on the turf proving extremely unfortunate, be was compelled to ask bis
wife for assistance. This slip consented
to render on condition that the r,on and
heir was brougnl up in the Established
Church. After some demur this was
agreed to, the father consoling himself
with the reflection thnt the other children would be left to him. Hut ill fortune still pursued him, and after another loss he bad to apply to his wife
again, with the same result, viz., the
surrender of another olive branch.
Still the luck did not turn, and at a
recent race meeting, ifter a series of
reverses, he was beard shouting excitedly, "Outsider   wins!   Outsider   wins!
good heaven, I sha'n't have one d d
little Catholic left!"
There was a time, not long ago, when
the elegant belle slept with greased
bands in old gloves, and by day kept
chein carefully hidden from the sun, as
a fashion writer puts it, "like mushrooms growing white In a cellar, so that
tbey may look and feel us though they
had never come in contact with anything rougher than satin." It is wholly
different now. Athletic sports are in
high approval. The daughter of wealth
grasps oars, tennis bats, bridle reins, and
tricycle handle bars, all without gloves;
and she is proud of the callous palms
which ensue, and tbe red-rosiness of
the knuckles that used to be the hue of
the Mly. Her liking for outdoor exercise
has not yet taken ber into tbe base-boll
field, where her fingers might get permanently deisfigurcd by breakage, and
so the hands are not becoming distorted
though they will never again be quite
as small and soft as tbey were.

experience in passing through the great

fully twenty minutes. The tulnborons
fuiur's from ibe engines render the confined atmosphere injurious to persons
with delicate lungs. The company re-
onested their engineers t" submit plans
for engines that w<«ul,l be capable of
passing through without using lire. Two
- tperimental locomotives, just completed, am provided with steam and water
that Is heated bj u stationary bolter al
each mid of (he tnnnel. The s1,•arn
thus generated is passed by means of a
current of hoi air, which li set in motion by the working of tlie engine, over
an alkaline liquid, confined in s special
chamber, and by tbis means is entirely
absorbed after having communicated its
power to tbe machinery, so thai n i vapor at all escapes into tbe atmosphere
of tin- tunnel.
It was found that the floor of the gallery in the Louvre, at Paris, which held
the famous Venus,,! Mllo had so suffered from damp that Immediate  repairs
were necessary. The Statues were removed, and it was proposed to set up tbe
Venus In the Halle Deoase, A fttosl*
mile in plaster was actually put there
to see how the real statue would look,
but tlie relatival ofthe donor ofthe collection Decaze objected to tbe sculpture
lining mixed with pictures, and another
site had in be decided on. inthe meantime the statue was overhauled. The
square of marble on which it stood has
been let into a circular plinth, with   an
Improvement of effect. The surface
has b. on carefully cleaned, and the result Is very Striking. 'I he lace and torso
air- white, while lhe drapery remain a
lull color. The Statue seems to have
gained Iii refinement, and perhaps to
huve lost a little in force. Its changed
appearance is else due to the different
light in which it is seen.
The diriiiiniul beds of liuliia und Minus
(ierncs, in Brazil, are very similar in
character as regards the minerals composing Ibein and their plateau form, or
situation on watercourses. Anew bed
bus been recently opened on the Hio
I'm.In, in n.ihiri, which presents some
differeiice to those hitherto known in
Brazil. The country around is low,
ui.n.liv, and covered with forests, The

Visitors to Frankfort-on tlie-Main this
summer will find that oue of the sights marked for them to see in the guide honks has
disappeared, The Judengasse, of whieh
there has only been one side standing since
1872, is now under a final sentence of destruction. The street was interesting historically, dating back to the middle of the fifteenth century, when it was the exclusive
Jew's quarter, and was safely walbd in, the
gates being shut on Sundays and holidays,
as well as on the occasions of the Emperor's
visits to the city, It was only iu 1808 that
these gates were demolished and the restrictions of the Jews removed. Since then the
Frankfort Jew! have spread throughout the
city. Only the poorest and most wretched
were left in lhe Judengasse, and its destruc-
tiou will be an undoubted sanitary improvement.
In the Sydney Legislative Assembly a
menihcr was angry at tiie abridgement of
his speeches, and he joined with others in
demanding that full reports he given. The
reporter revengefully gave his remarks verbatim: "Tho reporters ought not to—tho
reporters might not to be the only judges of
what is important, not to say what should
be left ont- hut- the niemherouly can judge
what is importaut—as I—as my speeches—

■Mr, mill was evidently iliapuseil to **B]
p issesaioii of every unoccupied aero
within twelve miles nf tie- leii'l of the
Inlet. The great road will terminate
at Port Moody, but it is quite pnssilil,-
that a branch line will go b* liuriiiiliv
Lake to Coal Harbor. That is the
bait lie will usejrvitli thr- Lurnl (Invorn
in,-,,I to get from tbem the unoccupied
acres on both sirb-s nf the Inlet. The
Prriviiieial Secretary and several Other
disinterested patriots have farmed n
Syndicate and own laud at Coal 11 nr
bor, and therefore—Van Home can
have every unoccupied acre iu the Pro
vince if he will only promise to give
one of the termini to enrich the local
land grabbers commonly called "ministers."
At Thunder Ray the Syndicate
wharves are fourteen miles long ; and
Van Horn says that the railway will
be taken on both sides of Port Moody
to the arm, and that the whole of the
Inlet from English Bay to the mud
flats, will be required for the ships to
be employed by the traffic of a railway
four thousand miles in length,
The Town Council of Victoria propose to borrow $100,000 for improvements. They may drain the city and
make it beautiful, but tbey may ruin
it, and would surely do so if they could
borrow the Town Council of New West-
minsUr. Ignorance is a comical engineer and a wealth waster.
In a leading article published in the
"Colonist" on Wednesday last, we find
the following interesting sentence with
reference to Port Moody : "The fear is
expressed that the private interests of
the Provincial Secretary will br allowed
to overbalance the interests of the pub
lie." There is no doubt about it. The
Provincial Secretary will take care of
his own interests. He does not believe
that any other interests deserve his
notice.
The Hon. Mr. Chapleau and the
Hon. Mr. Church, appointed to hold
an enquiry in this Province with reference to Chinese Immigration, were entertained on Sunday evening in San
Francisco by several capitalists, who
believe that cheap labour is required in
every part of the world.
A close observer who resides in Victoria, has ascertained that a goose
drinks water a hundred times a day ;
and the important fact is announced
in that nonsensical column of the

THE UNITED STATES
In the United States a man can ge,
as many wives as he wishes to keep.
He must pay for his whiskey but a wife
can be had for the asking. Last week
a corn doctor was arrested at Richmond
on a charge of bigamy. It appeared by
the evidence that he had travel ed all
over the stales tepairing ankles and re
moving corns and that he had married
a wife in every town. He was remanded; and the number of his wives ihat
have arrived to give evidence against
him would make a very handsome pro
cession at r. funeral The increase of
popu'ation threatens decency. It aids
universal suffrage as a leveller, and in a
few years the history of men and the
history of rabbits will bear to each other
a striking resemblance.
THE UNITED KINGDOM.
Waddington the Ambassador who
represented France at the London conference was not received wiih applause
when he returned to Paris. The French
people say he displayed little energy
against the spread of English power.
French newspapers say "France must
vindicate her rights; and they hope that
laient conflict wiil not pass into open
hostility." France abandoned her lights
when she refused to join England in
taking possession If she has rights
they will be respecced, but England
must keep possession. The land of
the Pharoah's is part ol the empiie.

A telegram to London on the 5th inst.
says. War between France and China

A passenger train on the Manchester

the 261I1. It was going at the rate ol
forty miles an hour when the axle of a

and forty seriously injured. The car

THE PRESIDENCY.
Some enthusiastic admirers of Mr.
Blaine are tossing up their caps in anticipation of what they esteem his certain return to the White House. Such
credulous, excitable people arc wholly
ignorant of American politics or are
purposely blind. There were, no
doubt, equally enthusiastic admirers of
Henry Clay, of Calhoun, of Daniel
Webster, who were equally certain of
their return, for the selfsame reason,
that they wero men of great ability,
and certain, from that fact, of being returned.    The truth is, that the posses-
■jw.i uf 0*.*U 4*lAa.. am   £•«>...   polllrl—1
power, is the greatest obstacle, in fact,
an insurmountable obstacle, to being
elected President ofthe United States.
The reason is very simple ; the Presi
dent is supposed to have just sufficient
talent to hold the balance fairly between the great political parties ; any
appearance of holding fixed opinions or
possessing political influence, implies a
strong bias to particular opinions 0"
kinds of policy, which may produce political revolution at least, if nothing
worse. Thus it will be seen that the
American people are wise, and by having a politically colorless President tliey
retain untrammelled, the power of the
popular will in the Government. The
greatest political crisis in England occurred when the sovereign attempted
to exercise his personal influence in
matters political. The best idea of
what a President sliould bo is demonstrated in a small way by our Lieut-
Governors, who merely act on the advice of their ministers for the time being, but who never interfere unless
some action on the part of ministers is
clearly unconstitutional or the popular
voice is unmistakably against them. Of
course Blaine knows all this, and he
has really less confidence in hi* success
than his noisy admirers. He is ambitious, nevertheless, and with his wann,
Irish blood he will fight for tho Presidency till the last, but wo do not think
he will be elected. If he was elected,
a new era would be commenced in the
United States—the era of Ciesarism.
Grant made a miserable attempt at it,
but he had no ability and only made
himself ridiculous. Blaine is quite
another kind of man, he. has considerable ability and would know how to
wield power for his own advantage. He
is perfectly unscrupulous and would
soon be beyond the control of Congress
and the Senate. There are plenty of
men possessing a good deal of brains
and very little money or principle, in
the United States, who would be but
too glad to carry out tlie behests of
Blaine for the sake of the plunder it
would place within their reach. With
this great body of power armed with
the giant strength contained in the
United States Treasury, nothing but
bloody civil war would unseat Mr.
Blaine if even that. However apparently, the South'. 111 troubles may
be skinned over, and everything connected with the late civil war smoothed
away, it would take very little to tear
open the wounds afresh, and set the
two sections of the country face to faoe
in deadly strife. Tho election of Blaine
would infallibly produce such a dire
eatastrophy which   might   end in   the
disintegration of the great republic.
With Grover Cleveland, all this may
be avoided ; he is a good, steady, sen
sible man, wbo will perform his duties creditably and I'-an to no party.
He is nominally a democrat, but of
the mildest kind. He is eminently respectable and will be supporti-d not
only by the wealthy classes, but by
all those who love order and the due
administration of the law. He will
be supported by all true Americans
who love their country and true republican institutions. Time was when
politicians were ininpelled to degrade
themselves by crawling servility—during the election—to the low order of
Irish nnd Germans. That time has
passed. The noisy "dimierat" of yore
bas been transformed by prosperity
bto the wealth*/ trader with flashily
dressed wife and daughters, who des-
plstV the class from which he sprung.
Fortunate miners, contractors, mer
chants, stock gamblers, and so forth,
have been creating a rapidly augmenting class, that now wields great political influence, and who will assuredly
cast in their lot with Cleveland. If
Butler comes out ho will inflict the
most serious injury on Blaine, because
he would split the Irish vote, which
would go wholly to Blaine in the event
of his being only opposed by Cleveland. Thus, between these two Celtic-
blooded rivals, Cleveland would decidedly have the best chance. But
aside from all party feelings it must be
the earnest wish of every true patriot
and every well wisher to the cause of
liberty and human progress that Cleveland should be elected. The present
state of the political barometer
throughout the world, is particularly
sensitive. The proud position of the
United States at this moment is mainly due toher abstention from meddling
in foreign politics, and, while guarding
the honor of America in every part of
the world, avoiding any cause of offense
which might involve a quarrel with any
European power. To depart from this
wise course by attempting a policy of
"bluff" would involve the United States
in troubles that would afford the highest gratification to several European
powers. —.Guardidn.

HONEST JOHN AT CHILLIWHACK.
"Let the ^allod lads wince."
The linniwk i>w seems tr. hjivo hero
very careful to reproduce what he is
supposed (0 have said at Chilliwhack,
for his paper, but he could not afford
to report for his friend Mr. Orr, so he
lets him slide with two or three words,
to the effect that he buttered up the
Government. That is to say, that the
honest one wishes it to be understood
that he takes Mr, Orr with him to these
meetings to praise the Government, and
having done his duty it is not necessary to say any more,    The honest onp
besmeared   the Ohilliwhaokians   with
praise for having made so much progress under his government; he wanted
them to understand that they could not
have made so much progress under any
other. He told them they did not
know how to manage th, ir municipal
affairs, and that they had committed n
great sin by allowing a man to sell
whiskey in their settlement. He then
went on to retail all his stock arguments aliout. the Settlement bill nnd
other absurdities of his Government,
all of which we have refuted a score
of times. But he aimed at killing two
birds with ono Etone ; ho tickled the
ears of his hearers with nfl'airs that they
neither knew nor cared anything about,
ami it gave him the opportunity— his
chief aim—to make aspeeeh for his pa-
per,in which ho makes a stupid attempt
to reply to the criticisms iu the Guardian. As for the people of Chilliwhack, he does not care a rap for their
opinion ; he appears to think that he
can say or do1 what he likes with thorn ;
they may or may not understand his
"policy" (save, the mark) but they cannot do anything else than vote for him
when it suits him to come and ask
them. They are a sort of pocket borough that he can1 do what he likes
with. He took tho opportunity to
crow about his handiwork in electing
Truthful James and in telling that Mr.
Armstrong never offered anything but
a factious opposition - not a very flattering description of that gentleman.
He painted out bow he, Jim Orr and
the Truthful, could pull together in harmony, which is very true, so long as
there are loaves and fishes to divide.
By way of introducing the main object
of his speech—a snarl at the Guardian—he threw them some taffy about
their volunteer corps. Ho then commenced the kind of subject that is most
akin to his nature—tho spurting of
mud ; but his mind is too acrid to make
it effectual; his illnaturo is so excessive that its productions always fail in
their object. His defense of the very
ugly gift to his friends, of a large piece
of township four, was only possible with
an audience such as that he could find
at Chilliwhack ; not one of his hearers
had the pluck to ask him why be and
his colleagues dared to give away the
people's property, because it suited
them to think the land was worthless 1
To show that this impudent story about
the Und being worthless is mere nonsense, one of our citiiens—amongst
others, who had been eagerly waiting to
purchase 160 acres of this worthless
land whenever it suited our Local Government to open it for settlement—
rushed to the laud oliice the moment he
found the reserve had been removed, to
find that the lind had been all given
away. This, unfortunately, is not a
solitary case ; it has been repeated over
and over again many times that wo
know of, but how many times that we
know not of, it would be hard to say.
His defence of the Burrard Inlet re-
servo murky uffair, was equally tame
and equally impudent. It is no business of his whether the land is worth-
less for cultivation or not—we happen
to know, however, that tbe land is very
fair agricultural land—it is his duty to
allow the settlers to judge for themselves. His story about the land lie
ing eagerly grabbed at prices ranging
from (100 tu -?o00 per acre, is mere
iiioonhine ; if it ever realizes sueh
prices during the reign of honest John
it will be the last ever heard about the
money; it will no doubt be judiciously
expended. But honest John knows
very well that it will never come into
the market while he has an acre for sale
in the vicinity, and we do not believe
the fictitious boom now being attempted, will last long enough for that. Thus,
in order to suit his own convenience,
the unfortunate settlers that he lured
here by misleading pamphlets, may
starve or go elsewhere for what he
cares. Does he not deserve his namel
honest John— and is he not happy in
having an audience at Chilliwhack to
talk a speech to, that he can publish 1
His rage when he came to treat of the
"unscrupulous press" that exposed all
his peccadilloes, was something terrible,
although he said, with a demoniac grin,
that he liked it. Yes, he likes it as
much as the offending sailor likes the
cat-o'-ninetails. He. would like to be
allowed to play out his little game in
peace, but his shallow mind and blinding conceit completely close his eyes to
the fact that he holds a place of trust
from the people, who  are  paying him
mnre money for Ills hftt.rayal nf his duty
than he ever could have hoped to acquire in any other legitimate way.
How even the most illiterate people can
be imposed upon by such a mountebank, is something very extraordinary,
and says very little' for our rural population. The time is fast approaching,
however, when the influx of new comers will bring to us intelligent citizens
who will not allow themselves to lie imposed upon; such patent humbug as
honest John's will only do for tho present. We have evidently one satisfac
tion at least ; we have penetrated the
very thick cuticle of this man who assumes to be a minister, and it is a confession that the truths we lay before
the public respecting hiin, are appreciated by some. — Guurdian

was decided tu build a large null,

an iroe '10x PJ.'i feet aud a solnl foundation of
piles and square timbers, it is located just
west of the old irtill site, ami iu the water at
high tide, situs answering the purpose of n

C.P.R. Construction.— Wuiuipeg Free
Press: Tracklaying was commenced this
season at a point about three miles beyond
Laggau and 7 or 8 miles havo been laid up to
tho present time. The road bed has been
completed for a oonsiderable distance beyond
this and the remaining 45 miles to tho < 'olum
bia river will be covered by rails during the
next three mouths. After crossing tho Columbia the line follows the river bank northward for about 40 miles, and this portion
will l»c easy to build, very little roca cutting being necessary. The line then turns
sharply and runs southwesterly down Mo*
berly Creek for tin miles where it crosses thu
Columbia the second time. Then it runs
through the Cold Range by the Eagle Pass,
crosses Valley Lake and parses down the
shores of Thompson River to Kamloops where
it will connect with the western division.
The distance from Laggan to Kamloops is
270 miles. The rock cutting has been pretty
heavy work, the cuts in some places being
25 feet deep. From the head of Kicking
Horse Lake to the Columbia the work is also
heavy. The Tunnel Mountain tunnel ia progressing rapidly. The distance to be tun
noled through the side of the mountain is
about 200 feet. Work has been pushed
from both ends and iu the middle and thi.
difficult task will soon he completed the
force of men now employed numbers upwards
of 5,000 and this number wilt be increased
as the work progresses.

(From our own POITespoudont*)
Hew Vork, July 28th,   18S4.
The Presidential campaign it; fairly opened,
and four EUohmOnds are in the field.    There
are Hlaiue nnd  Cleveland—the   party men;
there   is   Ceneral   Itutler, nominee   of the
Labor League, greenbacksrs, and anti-monopolists, while the prohibitionists   have   Mr.
St. John, of Iowa.    Iteretnfore   those   platforms have been undecided  and   scattering,
and although   their   supporters   have   been
good, earnest men, they have  a   reputation
for crankiness just as have all who tried   to
initiate reform.    Ami although the people of
this   country   have   not   yet made up their
minds against the liipmr trade, and perhaps
never will, .it ill it moot he admitted that the
hall is increasing iu size as it   rolls.      There
will ho n pretty strong Prohibition vote there
is no doubt.    My own opinion about   prohibition—which does not amount to  much—is
that if ever liquor be abolished,   something
worse will take its place, such as   opium   or
quinine, a stimulating drug more common in
Now York than you  would imagine.    Still,
as I have said, Mr. St. John will poi' a large
vote. As for General butler, lie looms up more
ominously between   the regular  candidates
each day.    He has not yet issued his   letter
of acceptance; he Is waiting to find out what
Mr. Cleveland will say, and govern   himself
according,    All the chances are against   his
election, but thero is no reckoning with tuoli
an extraordinary character as   Butler.    The
great   question   now   to   he solved, ia as to
which party he will take most votes   from.
The wiseacres and  wirepullers say   ho   will
carry Xew York, New Jersey,   ami   Hnssn-

will certainly throw affairs political into the

bedevilled   and   bespattered   by   the mud
stingers, and now it is Cleveland's turn.    The
first shot against his character has been fired.
A Buffalo paper—Republican,   of   course—
haa come out with the assertion that he   betrayed oue Mary Hnlpen, of that city, some
dozen years ago, ami refused to maintain his
own child.    An action at law has   been   instituted against the paper,  and   the   editor
says he is prepared toestablish proofs. Rhine-
lander's   lawyers   are   trying   to   establish
the plea of insanity.    But perhaps you do not
remember Rhinelander.    He belongs to  one
of the m mt aristocratic and wealthy families
in New York.    He is a young man, who,   a
few years ago, married a pretty  Irish girl,
not of high connection, but, as recent events
have shown, quitea lady in manners and   as j

THK ATTEMPT TO COERCE
THK LORDS,
The nias-i meeting held in London on Monday was the most Imposing demonstration
of the popular uill that has been lean in
Kngland since the agitation which extorted
the repel of the Corn laws. As the huge
procession passed Whitehall, it must have
reminded the onlookers of the similar uprising that preceded the Knglish civil war,
when the men of the northern counties
matched to London and emboldened the defenders of popular rights in the Cong Parliament to begin the struggle with the King.
The moral influence exerted hy such a display of force can hardly fail to be deep ami
lasting, and should like demonstrations be;
organized in Manchester and other great
centres of industry, the Peers may beeene
panic stricken, and objure their intention
of deferring the extension of the franchise.
It is nevertheless true that, by resorting
to mass meetings and the machinery of intimidation at this juncture, the Liberals have
dealt the upper House what Lord Salisbury
will be justified in 0nSl*Ag a foul blow,
Thero are times when the coercion of a recalcitrant majority of tho Peers wouhl be
necessary anil, so to speak, oonatitutional ;
but it cannot seriously he argued tha' tin
present crisis is one of them. The British
Constitution looks to the ballot box, and
uot to the i:; ^rancc of assemblies largely
composed of aoa-votan, us a means of ascertaining the national verdict. The plea
hitherto advauccd, alike by Liberals and by
Conservatives, for a second legislative chamber, i:' that it averts precipitate action and
assures the exercise of a thoroughly uifoimed,
deliberate judgment. By permitting the
Lords to reject a bill passed by the Commons
the B.itish Constitution virtually provide
for a 8pei;i.•■- of referundum like that practised
bi '' 'iiferi nci u an sceompfohe I fact Bul
the i' inference has rejoci rd I ird < Irani ills i
programme, or rather the i
a bieh would ri n f- r it snufui ible I v tbs
British nation. It evinced, ol course, »
cheerful readiness to sanction the proposal
to curtail the interest on Kuglanas canal
abates, and all the Continental powers M ; re
sented seemed to shan the eagerness ol
Frame to limit the stay oi the British
troopi in Ggypt, It waa not unwilli
to approve some minor palliatives "t" the present fiscal difficulty, such as i suspension if
the Egyptian nnktr£ fund, thi Imposition
of a tax upon tbe property of foreigners In
the Nile valley, and the creation ofa tobacco
monopoly, wolon wouhl sensibly increase tho
Khedive! revenueo. But it refused by a vote
which, "ith the exception ef England, was
unanimous, to net-mil any curtailment of tbe
interest on the Egyptian debt, or any renin
tion ofthe land tax. on which the foreign
bondholders moat mainly depend for the
payment of dividends on their secmrtics.
It is possible that the alternative QXpedi-
ents recommended by the CoofeMlM will
place sufficient resoaroes nt the dlspoeaiof
the Kgvpti.tn Covernment |o rnable it to
borrow UlB 140,000,000 needed to meet its
most pressing liabilities. But if the SUvUm
effected hy a mspenskm of the sinking fund,
and the new revenue** accruing from a tax
on foreign property ami a t-obacoo in nopoly
are mortgaged for the new loan, there will
still be a heavy deficit in the annual budget,
the income having been for some time inade-
.jU.ite to meet the ordinary expenses of the
Qovarsunant, including the interest on the
foreign debt. Thus in a few years tbe slate
of thint's will be just as bail as it is now,
even if no extraordinary expenses should l>e
incurred for a Soudan expedition, or for defending Kgypt proper against the Mahdi.

From New Guinea comes the news of the
dit-covcry ot a river about seventeen 'uiles inland, which will probably turn out to be a
lontinuatiou of the Hii,In, whose mouth was
found iu Wi'.l, but whose course has ever
since remained a matter of conp-ftinv. Tlie
lai^'e village ol Nini, with upward* of a
hundred bouses and a |K,puhitioii of 000,
gave ruireut travellers u most enthusiastic
reception, and no doubt the iiiliabitnuts wi

Frencli school* have lately been
taking to object lessons on u very large
scale, the authorities having come t,
the conclusion that Iln- bw way of
teaching children about foreign count
ries is to let them sit thoM OOUDtrl*
for tlieniHelvcS. At several of the Parisian schools n preliminary course of
study iu the political iiml Industrial history of the countries to he visited is
first gone through, and then the pupils
iiicinki'ii en mass tbo see what they have
been learning about. One school, the
Kcole Monge, has just re urncl from a
tour in Switzerland and Italy, und another, the Kcnle des Hautes Etudes
Conimereinles, from a tour in England.

The Chinese farm house is a cnrious-
loo'iing abode. Usually it is sheltered
with groves of feathery bamboo anil
thick-Spreading banyans. The walls
are of clay or wood, and the interior of
the house consists of one main room,
extending from the Moor to the tiled
roof, with closet looking apartments in
the corners fnr sleeping rooms. There
is a sliding window on the roof made of
cut oyster sliells, arranged in rows,
while tlie side windows are mere wooden
shutters. The Hour is lhe bare earth,
whereat nightfall there often gathers
togethers a miscellaneous family of dirty
children, fowls, ducks, pigeons, and a
litt»r of pigs, all living together in de-
lighful harmony. In some districts infested by marauding ban,Is houses are
strongly fortified with high walls, containing apertures for lire-arnis, and protected by a moat, ciossed by a rude
drawbridge.
Tho skirmishing drill of the Third
Dragoons and Fifteenth Hussars in the
recent London tournament is regarded
us an idea which may have Important
developments. Both regiments linve
practised, though in different ways, the
principles of Kurey, ami applied them
to an objectneverdreamtnf before. The
troopers have trained their horses to
lie down and remain in that position,
even when volleys are fired over them.
At a signal tliey rise, mail and hois"

iug enemy comes within fifty yards.
Tho fog signal apparatus is now constructed in such a manner that, in calm
weather, its sound may be heard twenty miles. This power is gained by
means of two slotted cylinders, one fixed and the other revolving in it. The
slots, as they pass one another, stop or
cut off the passage of the compressed
air or steam, and thus cause n series of
vibrations, and, consequently, a musical
note, the pitch of which depends upon
the Bpecd ofthe revolving cylinder.   In
order to vary tho note, it is only necessary to control this velocity. The double
note horn is formed with a casing within which is n fixed slotted cylinder and
a revolving cylinder moving upon a
spindle. The slots are foriied in each
cylinder at opposite Inclined angles, so
that the motive (lnid impinging sgalnsl
a number of Inclined pUnes causes the
inner cylinder to revolve with great ra-
rapidily, carrying with it two diiks. attached to the common spindle, and upon
their peripheries are pressed livers,

of which compressed air is admitted,

Paris has found a bird charmer named
Picard. A bet was made between him
and Loizey, who was skeptical. the
conditions were that Loizey should furnish a dozen birds, which were W be ut
the disposal of Ihe charmer for fifteen
minutes. At the end of that time Pi-
card was to open the cage which contained them, and each I.i nl was lo alight
upon a certain arbutus, brought upon
the ground by him and placed at a distance of fifty feet from tlie point where
they were liberated. For each bird
which did not obey the charm within u
riunrter of an hour Picard was to pav
fifty francs, and for each bird which
did I/Oizey was to pay the same sum
So large and so curious a crowd gathered on the Champs de Mars that it was
impossible to maintain the needful
space. Thirty feet was nil the distance
that could be secured. The results,
therefore, were not accepted as determining the bet, and another trial will
be made. The birds, however—released
under these conditions-flew one by
one to the arbutus and perched on its
branches. Plcard's charm consists, it
is believed, in impregnating these
branches with a colorless liquid, the
secret of which is as yet his own.
Two muscular young fellows, brutish
in visage and savage in manner, travelled through the country in John L.
Sullivan's company of pugilists. In
their part ofthe exhibition they got to
work without an instant's delay, banging their gloved fists into each other's
faces, writhing in momentary wrestling
matehes, and frequently dealing knockdown blows. There was hardly any
sparring or employment of skill, but
merely a show of strength and endurance. This is what an expert says:
"Fight bo blowed. That ain't no fight,
It's a h'act—that's what it is. Didn.t
you know it?" What he meant was
that the encounter was a prearranged
performance—an act, in theatrical parlance—with nothing left to chance.
"Them boys 'ave been scrapping together more'n twoyears.'' he explained.
"They've worked" up their 'business'
till they've got It down pretty fine. Old
sporting men don't dron to it. There
ain't a particle of real sparring in all
they do—it's merely a succession of
jumps, hits, and attitudes. Hard blowB?
Sometimes, but mostly between gloves,
with loud spats that make the spectators
think a nose is knocked off or a cheek
split open. Then the man what seems
to be hit gives a big grunt, as if the
wind was banged out of 'im. Tbey get
$50 a week for the pair of 'em, or likely
$10 apiece for a little snap of this
kind."

At a notable Chinese diuner lately sen ed in

Mr. IT. P. rturke, in '•Business and
pleasure in Brazil," gives the following
account of the mode in which betting
on racing is iniiinigeil in Brazil: "The
professional betters are locked up in a
large building with grated windows at
intervals, at which they bet with the
public giving tickets to record the transaction and attest the receipt of tlie money; when the race i» over, Ihe winners
repair to another window, and, on pr--
tenting their tickets, they are paid
their winnings."
The courts in Loudon have decided
that n man may not keep in his back
yard a dug which barks and how Is. The
Judge Stated that the best protection
against thieves and binglars wus a small
■log inside the house, which would
quickly alarm the inmates, and was infinitely more feared bv the frate'iiity.
Neithei was it lawful for hand organs
lo play when forbidden, nor for parties

Mr. Isaac Cume, a rich shoemaker of
Liverpool, who left his property to public charities, opened his lirst shop opposite the building where he bud been a
servant, and pat np a sign which read,
"I name—from over the way." Somewhat like this was the sign of a tavern
keeper named Dsngtr,o*-srBarnbridge,
who, having been driven out of his
house, built another opposite, ami inscribed on it "Danger from over the
way.'' The successor then retorted liy
putting up a new inscription. "There
is no danger here now.
Women havo some pretty substantial
rights in China. This appears by the
recent decision of a court in Foochow.
A man being convinced   that   bis   wife
was unfaithful to him prepared to kill
her—a remedy which the law sanctions.
Bis unworthy spouse, bowsver, was too
quick for him, and, instead of allowing
her husband to kill her, she killed him.
Tbis also waB rec.ignizeil by the court
as one of the rights which belong to
condemned wives, when they can exercise them; and, on the. conclusion of
the trial the woman was dismissed with
a reprimand for not having immediately informed the authorities of her
husband's death, and thus made arrangements for his burial.

The emerald green poison, us Alfred de

Iu a town in Normandy lives an aged lady
named Marie Duranl, much visited, who is

Dr. French, in a recent work, "Nineteen Centuries of Drink iu England,"
says that mead was tbe intoxicant,if the
ancient Briton, The Romans Introdno-
id wine,   rider was known at an early
late, but the Saxons, Danes, and Normans brought in the secret of stronger
beverages. Distilled liquors were introduced under the Pliintugenets, and
cleigymen toon begun lo tipple. In the
sixth ceiunry men of all degrees "slumbered away their time in drunkenness "
The prevalent intemperance of the
seventeenth century iBsabl to be due to
the Act to Encourage Dlstiljsttoo, the
exhaustion of light wines, the influences of the court, nnd the development of toasting and club life. Dr.
French predicts thut moderation will
increase until intoxicating beverages
shall be used and not abused, and   thus
become one of our blessings.
A Frenchman who has recently visited
•Switzerland tells with astonishment the story
of a young Swiss lady who, at a certain
table d'hote, refused to take any intoxicating drink lareause she had "signed." No-
ticing the look of amazed inquiry on the
Frenchman's face at her announcement, she
acquainted him with the meaning ofthe t* m
und induced him to glance at tiie statistics
ol the Swiss Temperance Society, whicii
showed that up to December the Society,
which has only boen formed very recently,
counted no le.s than '2,884 members, 1,470
of whom were men, 997 women, and the
rest children. Such self abnegation the
Frenchman had never found at home, for
France although sober if considered as a country, is not a land of temperance societies
nor is she improving in tbis respect. The
Parisian of 1830 consumed 100 litres of wine
every year; the present generation drinks
more than twice the <juantity, and thn five
litres of beer and other liquors have increased to eleven.
A wcll-kown Paris picture dealer has
published an interesting and useful
pamphlet on Sham Old Masters. He says
that the commonest mode of counterfeiting an old picture is to over a new
one—painted of course, for the purpose
—with a certain transparent paste,
which, when exposed to slight
artificial heat, cracks and becomes
brown. If a sufficiently venerable tint
has not been produced, the canvas is
washed with a mixture of lampblack
and liquorice juice. The picture is next
exposed for some hours to the smoke of
a wood fire, and, the loose soot having
been brushed away, is rubbed here and
there with a rag which has been dipped
in n very dilute sulphuric acid. This
operation gives a mouldy appearance to
those parts which have been touched.
The work is finally sprinkled, by means
of a tooth brush and a hairpin, with
minute Boots of a solution of sepia in
gum water, to imitate fly specks, and it
is then leady for the market. Signatures are imitated by experts, who are
known as monogrammistes, and who
devote their exclusive attention to such
matters; and one of these mm, wbo
died recently, and was known to be tbe
author of the pamphlet, confened to
I the forgery of no fewer than 11,000 signatures of the Italian masters alone,
j and said he had for years made a large
I income by the exercise of his art.
