Guards, and at them'"    All   the Gen
eral said wae,   it seems,      Now,    men,
get reaaly," or something to that effect
Possibly    but if   so   it   should   have
been kept dark.    "Up. Guards, and at
them!"    The eyes of the boys  of   my
day glistened   when   they   heard   the
tale.     "England," said   Nelson, "expects every man to do his duty,"    Oh
dear no ; nothing of the   sort.      Any
young fellow of thirteen   can  tell   you
that there is good ground for believing
that NeUon  never   used   those words.
All I can say is that the boy  of   forty
years ago would have stood up for the
phrase as long as he could  see  out   of
either eye.    Only thin summer  it  wag
discovered,   apparently   to the delight
of everyone,   that   the   Queen   never
pointed to a   Bible   when  aaked bv  a
foreign potentate what, was "the secret
of England's greatness."    Yet  the engraving that illustrates this incident  is
perhaps the most popular of   all   pictures iu the houses of the   poor,   and
thousands of children have got   their
tirat, sermon from it.     However,   thoy
will know better now. Our boys under
stand history as we never did.      They
Iind it difficult   to believe    that    their
fathers, in theit young   days, accepted
for a moment the story of Tell and the
apple.    There never was such a person
as Willian Tell.     It was a "myth" not
improbably   connected, somehow, avith
the Sun God.    Here is   an instructive
proof that our boys will have   no more
of these old legends,     Until lately  the
most popular of the "shooting galleries"
at fairs was the   "William   Tell."    In
this a avooilen figure of a human   being
represented Tells son, and it stood at
the back of a tent avith a   ball pointed
liko an apple on its head.    The marks
man fired at the apple    or ball if   you
will—and if he knocked it   oil In- got a
cigar.    This used to appeal   efl'ectively
to the boyish imagination, and  1 kno
(hat we practised till we become   Tells
in point of aim, and I dare  say   made
ourselves very   sick   with   lhe   cigars
afterwards     Our boys, however,   have
"iliafl'ed" the "William Tell" showman
out of livelihood.    They prefer   to fire
at a glass bottle suspended by a siring;
and when they hii   it  they   insist   on
getting a different, uort of pri-e, because
"allow" cigars are never good.       Fancy

bled the books abom until I asked him
whal he avauted.     He   avanted W A S
in the "Encyclopaedia 'UriUmuca."    I
found   it for him , but  after   he   had
iimn- a, .ih Iln Ian I; Ir,   aaaa    not   satis
fieil.     "Are any of   George    Washington's relatives living yet?" he inquired.
Why was he so curious I    Hehad   his
doubts about   the story of Washington
ami the hatchet,   and thought   of aa rit
ing to the hero's family    to   clear   up
the point.     1  could   have   boxed   bis
ears (Heavens! how   he   would   have
been startled), and, as it waa,   bundled
him out of the room.     And yet 1    sup
pose it was greatly to his   credit.      It
showed an intelligent   interest   in   hia
studies, and what an age of research  it
ial    Ohildren used   to   revel   in   the
stories told   them   by    their   mothers.
These   stories  were   a    link    between
mother    and   child;   artists    painted
them together as the tale was being un
folded, and noons laughed because the
child was represenied listening  breathlessly.      Many   books were   wiitten,
under such titles as "Tell me a Story,"
for assisting the mother'a   imagination.
Some of theae stories are told still,  but
it is hardly worth   while to  narraiate
them.    The children take   them  as  a
matter of courae, and   anticipate   the
end.    They don't believe for a moment
that the wolf  ate  little   Red   Riding
Hood's   grandmother; and   the   very
fact that Jack It small and  the   giants
very large lets them know at once that
h.-will overcome them all     1   attempt
siory-telling myself; but it is no good.
There are so   many    wonderful   books
for boys that my finest conceptions fall
fiat.    I take my hero into  the   depths
of the forest     It is night, and his only
weapon ia a penknife.     Dark shadows
glide past, which he knows to bewolaea. ]
There   is   the   roar   of  the  lion, the
monarch of the forest, in the distance.
Monkeys leap from tree to tree ; per

surely piling it ou pretty high ; but my

1 <aas nil A visit to my old friend

the Berkshire hills in Massachusetts.
Kur a good ninny years he had not foi
lowed his profession, but he nag still

ringers. Ir was a warm evening in tlii*
early part of September, and after
dinner I followed the doctor and his
wife on to the many-pillared, creeper
covered | verandah, that wss broad
tnough for a coaoh-and-four. The
night was cloudless, and the white
moonlight lay upon the lawn, and on
the open spaces between the clumpa of
limber in the undulating park-like
land beyond. Moths and fire-flies were
out in force, and the air was lively with
lire chirruping of jjrnss-hoppers and the
bird-like whistlings of the frogs. We
sat and smoked, made a few observations, and sunendered ourselves to
the soft bewitching loveliness of the
night. After a while Mrs. Martin
retired within, leaving us two old
cronies to ourselves. We had discussed medical matters, theology, and
politics for a considerable time, when
the chances of conversation led me to
remark that i> waa astonishing how
little of romance there was in teal life.
1 aaas aware that the observation Was
neither brilliant nor oiiginal, but then
neither was it absolutely ri liculous.

After thinking a bit, 1 answered,
"Oh yes; a few. But they came to
nothing.    They died in ihe bud."

garden of romance your prosaic life
would hive been!" lie sai.l, laughing*,

Tilt   Do,.Toll's STOI-.I
1 avas a young fledgeling physician
fr.--.li from the schools I had studied
in Edinburgh, Dublin, Paris, and
Vienna 1 was well equipped with
medals and parchments . ami
having been oflii uilly told so by half-
»-do-en learned bodies, 1 had no doubt
that I was a remarkable cleaei voung
man, destined to he oneof lhe darling.
of fortune and an orament to the pro
fession Meanwhile I was poor, and
fortune lit her coy way was holding
Iwek. My mother and sister lived in
a quite genteel way, in a pretty little
cottage in the country . My mother
had almost beggared herself to educate
me in the style my father had mapped
out before he died. I was not at all
inclined to limit the claims she had
upon me.for it was entirelydue to her af
fection and self sacrifice that I was bred
nobly to a noble profession, instead of
being meanly taught a mean trade.
When the time came for fortune to
open her reticule and make men present
of a good practice , I must say she did
not show to advantage. Thejade threw
in my way nothing more tempting than
a position aa assistant to a metropolitan
doctor, whoae practice was large but
not very remunerative, as it lay mainly
in poor quarters of the city Still,
money apart, the position had certain
advantages in the matter of experience ;
and more especially that, owing to
parchments and medals, 1 was enabled
to obtainan appointment on the visiting
medical staff of Bellevue Hospital.
This brought me in to contact with most
of the leading surgeons and physicians ;
onto which waters I hopefullycast every
crum of bread I could raise, in view of
the promise so well known to all needy
waiters on the banks of the river of
One day I went into the fever ward
to see a patient in whom I was interested. The poor fellow, an Englishman
was delirious, and crying piteously to
his mother, ns he imagined the nurse
to be, to forgive hun for running away
and leaving her to go into the workhouse, somewhere in Shropshire. The
nurse was evidently touched, anil did
her Ire-it to sooth him. As I drew near
she drew back. Having made my
examination, I turned to leave, and then
for the first time did 1 behold the
purse with the eyes of a man, instead
of avith the somewhat supercilious eyes
of a visiting physician. Tall, with
black hair and eyes, a face pale but
curiously refilled and full of infinite
attraction, she stood gracefully, avith
her hands clasped in front of her ; and
in her plain well-fitting dress of grey
stuff, with white linen collar and cutis,
she made, I thought, a marvellously
striking picture. 1 bowed to her, but
1 did not pass on. On the contrary, 1
engaged her in conversation about my
patient. She was quite self-possessed,
answered my questions intelligently,
and in some of her remarks suggested
a knowledge that is not often found in
a hospital nurse. Her voice was
singularly pure and sweet, and them
was a certain something iu her manner
that hinted of high breeding.
"I   have   not   seen   you    before, 1
think?" I said at last
"No, sir ; I think not."
"Have you been here long ?"
"Six weeks only ; but I am not aery
regular,     1 miss   a day or a night now
and then "
"Do you enjoy being here '.'"
She smiled slightly, as she answered,
"It is   hardly a  place   of   enjoyment,
Still, it interests me greatly."
"May I inquire vour name, please '"

"Thank you very much.    I think the

Doctors do not, as a rule, shake
hands with nurses 1 kneaa it, and
she also knew it For a moment she
hesitated, then, giving me a quick
glance, she touched my hand, while u
faint color crept, into her face Some
hours later 1 saw my patient again, but
the nurse had gone off duty. The case
in question avas an ordinary case of
typhoid fever, but of a sudden its
features must have changed, 1 think,
for I found it, advisable to note its
character three times a day for several
BUccessiae days. And yet Miss Van
Meter was never on duty. Considered
as a syuitom of the case in hand, 1
found that her absence was much to be
regretted. At last 1 resorted to the
matron, and from her I learned that
Miss Van Meter had, at her own request been transferred to the consumptive ward.
"Is she a New   Yorker I"    I asked.
"I do not,   know, sir.    She is   not a
paid nurse ; she gives ber service for the
sake of the experience."
"Will you let me have her town address, please'!"
"Certainly, Dr. Martin ; with
pleasure," answered, the matron, turn
ing and bending over her desk to hide
her look of amusement.
I took the address, thanked her, and
went and made sure that Miss Van
Meter was on duty ; then I aaeut out
to explore her address, 1 hail a notion
that I should find her home to be more
in accord with her person than avith
her assumed station in life, She avas
questionless a lady of wealt", and could

woman wealing a purple velvet ,lt.ss
and a kit. hen apron answered the dooi
Now I submit that a purple velvet
dress is hardly in keeping with the heat
room of such a house, and in the uaen-
ing ; but in the morning, when all the
housework is being done, and un_!eraii
apron- well, I fear my manner was a
trifle brusque
"Does Miss Van    Meter live here i"
"Yes, sir, she does "

"Indeed I 1 did nol know thai.
Has she been with you long?'
"Nig! on three months. She comes
from Massachusetts way, from all that
1 can learn But she ain't very talka-
tive, sir."
1 asked one or two more questions,
withheld my name which I was invited to leave, and wished the royally
arrayed daughter of the people good
morning. I did not return to the
hospiial that day ; and as I sat smoking
iu my den at night, I atli-ctcd the part
of the sadder but the wiser man. I
runmnliiluicil inv-flf on the n.-iu way
iu which 1 had at the start pricked my
little painted bladder of romance. I
rated myself soundly for my idiotic
susceptibility ; 1 took a vow of callousness in the future , I called upon my
stars to write me down an ass if ever I
looked at a girl again until I had made
sure she was an heiress nt the least
Thus did I put on a giant's uruiour,
forgetting that my natural stature was
was not heroic. For two days 1 was
brave — that is to say, I kept out of the
I fight; I avoided the hospital altogether.
On the third day I wanted to* see the
senior house-surgeon on an important
matter. I went into his office, and
there I found Miss Van Meter. She
was looking out ofthe window, and as I
entered she turned and bowed. I went
up to her and shook hands.
"I avant to see Dr. Hoare ; is he
within?" I asked, looking towards a
door that led into a large consultation-
"Yes ; he has been engaged for some
time now 1 don't think he will be
long. 1 am waiting to see him also, but
I am not in a gieat hurry. You may
see him lirst if yon wish, sir," she said,
and her voice sounded like music. I

Profcesor Saunders came all the avay

a myth, and the Oar. it is well-known,

in a moment of despair, become embroiled in a great war. It is a well-
known naiiini avith great statesmen that
aalicn affairs at home become dcs'icrate
,, foreign a-ar is the Irest alterative, and
this aii iv nf the .asc may be adopted liy

Count   I uliaiii.ff  avho is   c*i|sji'ted,  no
doubt, in adopt tlie views of the Emperor .villi ({renterfacility than M. DeGlen.
This is, i" lay the least, an unpromising
prospect, because tho policy of M. Dc-
Gieri wai always conciliation,     The
pa|ici rouble which is nominally worth
aliout sia, shillings, has fallen to about
one shilling and tenpence. As it is
quite a mailer of uncertainty where the
Oar may fix upon a* the pro|ier point
ol attack, Germany and Austria are
both carefully watching events and are
fully prepared. Affairs have now-
reached that point avhen all- even assumed indifference, is out ot place,
and both German statesmen and newspapers are engaged in courting the
good opinion of England. The Britisli
Government from her peculiar parliamentary institutions, renders her foreign
policy of the most uncertain character.
For instance, if Lord Salisbury was to
lie displaced to-morrow by Mr. Gladstone, the present foreign policy of the
Uritish Government would be completely changed, and England avould at once
lake a hack scat, much to her degradation and loss. But this uncertainty in
her diplomatic relations, is almost an
advantage, because any Government
may point to that fact, as an excuse for
avoiding entangling alliances, and she is
thus left free to throw in her weight,
where and avhen it is likely to be most
effective and advantageous. 'I'he state
of feeling in England on lhe present
phase of affairs in Europe, can be readily judged from the state of the stock
market : consols have now reached the
enormous price of 102 to 102^.
Money for temporary loans, appears
plentiful, berause there is really no demand for it. Meantime, every effort is
being made to place the forces of the
country in a stale of readiness for any
unexpected turn in the affairs of the
European continent. France is in a
similar position to Russia ; her finances
arc in a deplorable condition and wc
fear her change of ministry will not improve her position. M. DeFreycinet
avas probably her best statesman and
he had really the best interests of the
country at heart. He dreaded a quarrel with Germany and did all in his
power to avert it. His little scheme of
diverting public attention from a war of
revenge, by sending M. Herbette to try
and induce the German Chancellor to
join France in demanding the evacuation of Egypt by the English, utterly
(ailed. His object was only to draw
the bellicose feeling of the French army
from Germany to England, because he
knew that England would stand a good
deal, rather than quarrel with France,
lie intended, no doubt, had M. Herbette succeeded, to have acted Bom
bastes up to a certain point, and then,
if possible, hinting that the country
would be appeased if England would
permit the annexation ol the New Hebrides by France. Whether Gen. Bou-
l.ingei who, we observe, is chosen by
every aspirant for the leadership, is
Minister of War, has had anything to
do with the fall of M. DeFreycinet, we
ate unable to say, but it looks very like
il and slums plainly lhat the army is
determined «1 a quarrel avith Germany.
All this is perfectly clear to Bismarck,

The pacification of Burmah is now
going forward in earnest, and Daunts,

note that some agreement has been
come lo between England and China
in view of possible hostilities with Russia. The Chinese have many cause; of
quarrel avith the Muscovites and a good
excuse for attack can be created at
any time. This for England, is a very
good card lo have in her hands, as,
should Russia attempt anything on the
Indian frontier, the Chinese can easily
sweep the Cossacks from Kuldja and
vicinity, and so give the Czar plenty to
do at that point.

Everyone knows that these l»o essentia] desiderata ior the preservation of the
health of our  cituens  should be constantly kept before the attention of our
citizens.    We are well aware that they
are costly improvements  and require a
very large outlay at first; but these facts
would have no terror for good business
men,  who could understand that they
are reproductive  and more likely to be
a source of wealth  to the city besides
being a source of health to our citizens.
It must be borne in mind that our \io\i-
ulation is   rapidly increasing  and that
the sale of our squares and o|ien spaces,
in accordance with the original plan of
the eity, is causing that  increase to be
confined  to a certain limited  space in
the centre of '.he town.    The dwellings,
belore these sales, were much scattered,
and  the wells  in many cases  shallow-,
and supplied for the most part with stn-
facc water,   were  still   comparatively
wholesome.     But the  matter is  vera
different now.     The strata upon which
this city is built  is principally  gravel
and very porous ;   the  consequence is
that being on a gentle slot,*: the dwellings in the lower part of the city receive
the  moisture  into  their   wells   which
drains from the dwellings above.     This
is a very   serious   matter   and   if not
promptly attended to may cause a great
deal  of disease,  and  from  being the
healthiest and  most agreeable place of
residence in the Province, it may come
to be  regarded as quite the reverse.
Some feeling with regard to the condition of the  wells must have  impressed
some of our citizens, to say nothing of
the fact that, in dry weather, the wells
become dry, and an attempt was made
to get over the difficulty by obtaining
water through  pipes,   from  the upper
portion of the townsite ; but this was a
frail and very imperfect resource for the
much needed  supply, as the water was
little  better than that in the old wells
and the quantity very deficient.    It is
quite evident that anything less than a
copious supply from some never failing
source—such  as the upper Coquitlam,
is merely trifling with a very great danger and  may  cause  lasting  regret to
everyone in this community, if the difficulty is  not  met  in a proper manner.
We are sure there is no one amongst us
even in the case of those possessing real
spring  wells  who   would  grudge   the
price of a good supply of wholesome
water, hence the  introduction of pure
water from an exhaustless source would
be a very profitable enterprise.     We
should  certainly  recommend that the
water supply belong to the corporation,
because as the city expands and alterations are  required,  these can be made
in the most convenient  manner and to
the best advantage for all concerned.
But, can we depend on the honesty and
business   capacity   of  our   municipal
councils?   There lies the rub.    If we
should  be pestered  with boodle aldermen and  lacqueys to   future   honest
Johns, we had  better  leave it  in the
hands  of a company and  secure ourselves by the careful insertion of clauses
in the charter which would prevent any
imposition.    With regard to sewerage,
which is equally necessary  with a good
supply ot  water,  the  progress of construction must be carefully considered,
and effected as  rapidly as the city revenue may permit.      The sewers should
be commenced   where  they arc most
urgently required and a certain portion
completed  every year  upon a well digested plan.     The  beautiful site of the
city, on a gentle slope, affords the most
••cried  form of drainage ; and, if the
city is blessed  with an exhaustless supply of water,  such  as  we   described
above,    the   sewers   when   completed
could  be  flushed  from  time to time
making this one of the healthiest cities
in the  world.    The peddling and nonsense of recent  city councils has been
very   contemptible.      Filling   tip   the
streets with sawdust and buying a great
toy like our steam  fire engine, are not
very business like transactions.    Had
our city councillors  been  wise,   they
would have  adopted the recommendations which appeared in the columns of
this journal,    years ago,  and   placed
large tanks at  the rear of the city with
pipes laid in the principal streets fitted
with fire plugs.    The force of the water
descending from the tanks would have
greater power than a dozen of the best
steam fire engines.

ment, if it duly take them into account, to

Bteainers just mentioned ; and if it fails to do
so, the imperial nrlvnntngcs of tho new
route during war iu aaliieh (iteat Britain is
involved with one or more lirst or second-
class naval Powers may not be half a. great
as tbey otherwise avould be. Lastly, the
ini'HTial aspects of the new route to .lapan,
China, nnd Australia are greatly enhanced
by the probability that nn alternative submarine cable will he provided to Australia.
Tho only cubic connection with the mother
country and her Australian coloniea is via
the Red Sen, India, and .lava, by two lines belonging to the Eastern Extension Telegraph
Company. Until these were accideutly
severed a few week. ago. During war the
enemy can easily cut them. The importance
of nn alternative cable in an opposite direct-
tion is therefore self-evident. I understand
that comiiiiiuicatiolis have tnkeu place between the Canadian nnd Imperial Covern
ire-ills an, I between both and the Covern-
ments of Australia und New Zealand ua to
the laying down of a cnhle between Port
Moody and New Zealand, with stations on

he haa done uny year Mince the beginning of

whom I -"-poke assured me that more than
100,000 French .'■tn.uli._m_ had been brought
back from the United Statea aince 1880.
He anid it waa owing to thin fact that the
French Canadians had eo suddenly become
a political power in the Protestant province
of Ontario. 'From being a handful a few
years ago,' he said, 'the French Canadians
now number 130,000 souls iu that province,'
Pamphlets in large quantities are, he told

The occasion of Premier Preycinet's resignation was comparatively trivial, but the
difficulty of forming a new cabinet cannot be
unrelated to the agitated ami expectant stat"
of public feeling acrosB the line. The
Chamber of Deputies insisted, notwithstanding the remonstrance of the Ministry, .upon
the abolition of sub-prefectures. The' ad

robbery and murder. It is of uo une to recount these ; the guilty paiUcr* are moutly
slain. Certainly they are not the lufTerora
by the present warfare.

who live by tbe army : the desperadoes ami
outlaws who have, found a refuge in tht--'
wild territory, after oven the tolerably law
less life of other western regions became loo
orderly for them ; and the adventurous
pioneers, Mexicau and American, who have
been attempting for year* to develop the
agricultural and mineral nspurooa <rf the lei
ritory. The latter class deserve» protection,
and has failed to receive it. hsrge districts
of Arizona, rtcttlod by the Mexican*, a hun
died years ago, and once full of protparoui
ram-hen. have been depopulated by the lu
dian wars, and have lapsed into driert
-iolttades. At present, the .ill. i ■ arc
mostly gathered (except mi tba lower Gila,
and in a narrow atrip of country along the
Colorado) in a few principal town*., and even
here they do not feel sale. Whilo traveling
on tbe main highway*, i- perilous indeed, M

The reservation syaleiu, thus tar as ajv
plied to the Apaches, is apparently a failure. They aro not an organized community
capable of concluding and keeping treaties,
and there is positive evidenco that they use
the reservations and rations provided by the
Government as the basis ol their hostile
operations. This is tho rosult partly of the
character of the Indian-* themsolves, partly
of the criminal laxity of the agent*, of the
■Government, and of a collision of policy he
tween the War and Indian departments, in
the highest degree unfortunate. Nothing
could be worse, m dealing with such navagcn
than to feed them with one haml and light
tbem with the other. Miles skirmishing
and Gereuimo killing, naturally led tho
Apaches to continue their courae of alternate
plunder and pow-wow.
But the army in Arizona needs Momething
besides reinforcements or supplies . namely,
an improvement in discipline and morals,
especially amougst officers. The manner in
which many behave is calculated to make
any government policy unsuccessful. I'he
grand jury of this county, in it-*, official report recently, made the following presentation :—
" We find that the habit of beastly
drunkdifhess generally prevailed with few
marked exceptions among the ollicers commanding at the various military posts iu
this county ; that the rations iisucd to the
Indians have been misappropriated j that
one quartermaster of the U*o. A. suid he made
a surplus of 10,000 pounds of corn tn issuing
rations tothe Indians of camp Uoodwin.
We liud that a commanding officer at camp
Apache gave limior to thu Apaohe Indiana,
and got beastly drunk with them from
whiskey belonging to the hospital department of the (I. S. tiovernment: that omceis
ofthe U. S. army at those camp*' where the
Indians are fed are in the hand ol uting
their official position tn destroy tbe ohaotlty
of the Indian women, etA etc."'
If this is the behavior ol our officers no
wonder soldiers Hct-ieit, and the Apuchoi
both hate ami despise us,
The outside world arc led to believe, now
that Geronimo and his followers are capturud
and aafolin Florida, that the depredation** of
the red devil are at au end; but in thir
they are sadlv mistaken. There are hun
dreds of ambitious red-skins iu this territory
only watting a chance to "diatinguish
themselves try an attack on some dcfencelrHH
community, and, wheu leant nupcctcd, the
country will be appulled by another masaa-
ore. There will be annMicr chase after
them by the U. >S. tunqpa, ending, of course,
in "conditional surrender;" after which they
will probably be placed on a reservation
again, and fed and clothed like prince, until
they feel like, another "hunt."    Same result
Indian affairs in the United State* may
not interest British readers much, but my
object in writing on this subject is to illustrate the contrast of nature between the red
man of this territory and the "siwash" of

have long BUtabefed about a hundred. It
was lun hastily assumed in some .(nui tt ia.

To German Clerics Is, moreover, the time
seems ripn for the German empire in Its
collective capacity to be represented by an
Ambassador at the Vatican. The kingdom
of Prussia has for some years cntiseuted to
treat with Pope Leo through a Minister,
but Bitnuaick has refused lo send au Am*
hast-ador on bshalf of the empire, on the plea
that, although some of tb inMitnent State*-
are Catholic, othera arc Lutheran or Kvau
geHcal. Dnt this objection is much weakened by the fact that Prnsnia, the chief of
the non-CalliollcHt-ntc*., has at road y ho far
yielded to the wishes of its Catholic subjects as lo maintain an Knvoy at the Vatican.
It is not likely that a question of raising
this representative a grade or two in diplo*
ni.Mii' rank,*and of giving him credentials
from tbt* German empire instead of the
Pni-sian Kingdom, will cause a hitch in the
important negotiations going forward between Bismarck and the Clericals. If Germany really needs more soldiers, the Chancellor will have to pay whatever price Herr

done something else, for, instead of shedding
oceans of human blood, he has cured his

and   oImwi vations in   his owu way as iw-arty
as we aaa recollect it     He aaid :—
" Thr party I aUrtod out with consisted
of elrien peraoua. We weut hy the l>yay
I'm.*, traveling the aame route made famous
hy Schwatka. Tbe first difficulty we had to
eneouuter was a financial uue, vis ; the
enormous ooat uf packing iood audnecerwary
material to the gold digging*. The Indians
lor this aervice charge as much as the first
eoatot the articles. The legion traveled is
wild and ragged and tbe divide preoeuta
magnificent aceuic effects in precipitous
eliMiuis and snow-clad peaks. The first
strutm we struck was the Salmon river, not
more than two teet wldo, but gradually in
creasing iu volume oa it neared the groat
Yukou. At its junction with that river we
made our first diggings. Here our little
party broke up, the majority guiug ahead to
prospect the Stewart river, another tiibu
tary of the Yukon. More *thau sufficient
gold to pay expenses was taken out^of Hal
mon river—in fact we|uever made a prospect
that did not show enough to pay expenses
during the time we were in the country. At
every aand bar down the Salmon river we
gut good pro-jpects, and theae had been
worked the year before by other parties. I
spent my first summer working ou the
Salmon bars ; thence I went tu the mouth
of the Stewart. The second summer I
worked ou the Stewart river. Men working
at tbe mouth of the Stewart averaged from
IT to 99 per day. Here great trouble was
exnei ionced in trying to save the fine ur flour
gold, as it it> called. If some means can be
invented to save it, there are fortunes in it.
1 experimented three months in trying to devise some means to save this flour gold and
succeeded, in a measure. I am now going
down to diggings in Oregon, wheio I understand they have discovered a process tliat is
successful. When we had to abut down for
the season, the diggings were paying $60 per
day to the man. Nut withstand ing the
rigoruusly ould winters, ami the widespread
reporta that the season was too short to
make enough to pay expeuoes, it lasts fully
six months, aud the poorest diggings struck
would do much more than that. Aud as to
the climate, I would rather winter there
than in southeastern Alaska. The cold ie
iuteuae, averaging 40 degrees below zero
duriug the winter months, and getting down
as low as 70 and 60 occasionally. But when
the cold is so great there ia a perfect dead
calm —-as calm as it bi in your room— and at
night the stars are at clear that thev seem to
hang out from the sky. The absence of
wiud duriug the winter readily accounts for
our uot suffering much from the cold. We
found plenty of game while we were there,
along and in the neighborhood nf the river,
hut it ia becoming scarcer each season, and
It is generally beet to lie independent of the
resources of the country iu that particular.
I haven't any doubt that richer diggings
arc yet to be found in that region. The part
of it we traveled over did not embrace more
thau 550 miles in alt, including the feeders,
tho Salmon and Stewart rivers. Thericheat
^■({Si"^ *"•■■ undoubtedly br found along
the headwaters of the Yukon. At tha head
of tha Stewart river fltO diggings ware discovered by Messrs. Bozwell and Krater.
There are about 75 men who will winter at
Fort Nelson near the junction of the Stewart
and Yukon. Fort Nelson, by the way, la
named after a Signal Service observer of
that name who has made himself famous in
tlte scientific world by his important and interesting collections from Alaska. Quite a
settlement is here established, consisting of
several substantial stora buildings and tbe
houses of the miners. It is a beautiful loca-
t inn and evinces an eye for business and
beauty on the part of the locator. Very
little prospecting for quart* haa been done
so far, miners confining their attention principally tn placers. I nave heard of but one
ledge., discovered accidentally, specimens of
which aasayed $2,000 per ton. We found
gold iu every stream we prospoctod, and
from other miners wbo have traveled over a
greater extent of territory tban I have, am
informed that gold ia found over a wider
range in northern Alaska than in'any State
or Territory on the pacific Coast. There is
no doubt that we have tn Alaska the largest
quart*, ledge that was ever found, and recent
information proves that we have also the
most extensive placer diggings in the world.
1 haven't done very well myself—have very
little to nhow for my two season's work,
only $1,284 after paying iny expenses—but
there are othara who have made as high aa
$6,000 in lens time. 1 am going back next
spring, and witli new machinery and the experience 1 have already sained I expect to
dean up from $5,000 to $10,000. The general appearance of the country is oa if it had
all been placed on end, and would cover aa
much territory as the United States if it
were spread out flat. It is mountainous in
the truest sense—broken, jagged and rugged,
with very littie softness of outline. There
are stretches of fiat land along the river, the
result uf ice and water erosion. Theae flats
are well timbered, and, aa far as I oould per*
ceive, just as good timber as is found anywhere in Southeastern Alaska, with one ad-
ditioual feature that lent a glory and a
beauty to the landscape in autumn not aeen
anywhere except in tne Kast, and that waa
the superabundance of small annuals, whoae
foliage become a blase of color when the
frost king hcgnii hia artistic work. Of these
annuals tlie cottonwood waa the moat abun
dant. In spring and early summer the number, variety and beauty of the wild flowers
waa Ik* wilder ing. It waa a perfect feaat of
color, aud many of the flowers delicately
perfumed. It was a perfect paradise for a
painter. The auroral lights were something
grander than I had ever before aeen. They
always seemed far away, but now they came
down in streams of gorgeous light right over
me. I felt as if they were atmospheric glacier-**, only that they ruahed through space
with lightning velocity and cleaved the
calmer, warmer air about me, making a siz-
/Hug noise as of something burning. I think
it is caused hy intensely cold air, or a wedge
of cold air coming in contact or forcing its
way into a warmer strata near the earth.
Once, when one ot these brilliant pillars of
light seemed to come right down upon me, I
felt a shock, taking iny breath fora moment;
then it passed away. I saw the lights frequently, but only hod that pereonol contact preparations to defend tbeir property. The

In the Reich,U« during tho debate on the
first reading of the Military bill, the Progressionists signified their willingness to vol.-

the period of service from three to two yeara.
This the Government refuacd to consent to.
Gen. Bronsart vou Sohellendorf, Minister of
War, said: Germany, may, within a
measurable time, be involved in war. It is
moat natural that we should compare our
war strength with that of France. With lew.
inhabitant, than Germany, France has a
higher peaoe effective force. Shall we allow
ourselves to be outstripped by a neighbor
ing State in which we cannot perceive that
peaceful disposition necesaary to enable us

urgent character. The Reiohstag must pass
thu measure before Christinas if tho purpose
ofthe Government is to be attained. [Sensation.] The Government ia in earnest. It
does uot aak for more than it intends to
acoept." Herr Rlchter said he could uot
admit that the sitnation was so threatening.
Thanks to tbe policy of Bismarck, the
alliance with Austria remained a fact.    Tho
Suerition before them was not the .acute
anger of war, but the perpetual additions to
the ourdens of the people. An exhaustive
examination of the Government's financial
proposals should precede acceptance of the
bill, Gen. von Schellendorf, in the courae
of his reply, said that the Government had

for the military bill to come into force. Herr
Saldern spoke in favor of the bill, and
recommended that it he adopted without
amendment, l
Germany's flag is now fluttering over
muoh real estate in East Africa to which
the Sultan of Zanzibar says he can shoav a
clear title. He is accused of compassing
the death of two Germans who were scratching the virgin soil of Uaagara with imported
hoe*. It ia also said that with a few yards
ofoloth and souie bottles of gin he has induced some of Germany's new subjects to
haul down tbe flag of their adopted sovereign
and raise the colors of Zanzibar. Germnny
has now set apart a few -.unboats and a
little gunpowder with which she proposes to
make a demonstration in the harbor of Zanzibar, and convince Bargash ben Said that
something dreadful will nappen if he does
not quit poaching in Germany's East African
preserver,, which now embrace a region
about as large as the State of New York.
Millions of natives are doubtleaa unaware aa
yet, that in the recent scramble for Africa
they have become the subjects of European
powers. When that fact dawns upon them
the yoke of allegiance does not seem to gall
their shoulders very much, Miandara, the
ono-eyed potentate of Kilimanjaro, for instance, haa been flying the Saga of Germany
or of Zanzibar according as the emissaries of
one or the other of thoae powers happened
to be in hla neighborhood. The French announced with a alight flourish ot trumpets a
while ago that they had annexed the Comero
Islands. The Sultan of Comero, however,
haa juat slammed the door In the face of
some French colonists on the ground that he
merely agreed to reoeive French protection,
and doe* not want any immigrant*.

wa* met with a refusal by the inhabitants of

began to pillage tbe town. The merchants

" Your name may Haunt a titled trail,
Proud as a cockerel's rainbow tail ;
And mine as brief appendix wear
As Tarn O'Shauter'a luckless mare ;
To-day, uld friend, remember atill
That I am Joe and you are Bill !
" You've won  the great world', envied
And grand you look in people'a eyes,
Withfl 0.;N. andLL.D.,
in big, brave lettera, fair to see I
Vour fiat, old fellow !" off they go I
" How are you, Bill V " How are you Joe?
" You've worn the judge'- ermiue robe ■
You've taught your name to half the globe;
You've sung mankind a deathleas strain
You've uiudi- the dead past live again.
The world may call you what It will,
But you and I are Joe and Bill."
The chaffing young folka stare aud say,
" See those old buffers, bent and gray ;
They talk like fellows in their teens.
Mad,   poor   old   boys!     That's what It
And shake their heads     They little know
The throbbing hearts of Bill aud Joe !
Uow Bill forgets his hour of pride
While Joe sits smiling at his aide ;
How Joe, in spite of time's disguise,
Finds the old schoolmate in his eyes—
Those calm, stern eyes that melt and fill
As Joe look* fondly up at Bill,
Ah ! pensive scholar, what is fatnef
A fitful tongue of leaping flame—
A giddy avhii Iwiiid's fickle gust
That lifts a pinch of mortal duat!
A few swift years, and who can show
Which duat was Bill, and avhich waa Jos?"
The weary idol takes his stand,
Holds out liis bruised and aching hand.
While gaping thousands come and go---
How vain it seems, thia empty show !
Till all at once his pnlses thrill—-
Tii, poor old Joe's " Iind blesH you, Bill I"
And shall wc breathe iu happier bpheres
The names that pleased our mortal ears,
In some sweet lull of harp ai.d song,
For earth-lioru spirits none too loug,
Just ivhi-pering of the world below,
Where this was Bill and that was Joe *•
No matter; avltile our home ia here
No sounding mime is half so dear.
When lades at length our lingering day,
Who cn i-ii what pompoua tombstones s_y *
lie.id on the hearts that love us still i
Hie jnent Joe !    Hie jacet Bill !
A curious diiliculty bos arisen with tha
law student, Mr. Stanbury Eardley, wbo
wan convicted at the Solihull Police Court
recently of assaulting biH father's coachman
and the policeman who arrested him, and
was si-iili-iii ial to four months' imprisonment. The prisoner, it wilt be retnemdered,
disputed the jurisdiction of the magistrate*
on the gruuiid that a question of property
right was involved in the proceedings, aud
when his objection waa overruled he became
very violent and abusive. Sirtoe his removal to Wiusou-green Gaol, the priaoner
has emphasized his protest against hi* con.
viction by setting all the rules of prison
discipline at di'liain e, refusing to avear th*
nnliiiia v convict clothing, and claiming to
be treated as a first-class misdemeanant.
He has not submitted to the cropping of hia
hair, and he avill not take food nf any kind.
The clothes were eventually forced ou liim
by the united exertions of nine stoutwsrder*,
but us soon ns his gaolers had retired the
prisoner stripped himself and lay all night
stark naked. Hu refused to take any food
until his "'.mi clothes avere restored to him,
and his meals remained untouched. The
following duy the clothe* avere forced uu him
again, together witli a restraint jacket, and
it avas then deemed advisable to remove him
to a padded cell. Here he was seen and remonstrated with by two visiting justices,
but nil to no purpose. The food remained
untested and the prisouer refused to take
part in the ordinary exercises required of
prisoners who are not doing hard labor. He
continued obstinate during the whole of
Saturday, and on Sunday the authorttiea
began to be alarmed for hla health. He had
then had no food since the previous Tuesday,
and he continued tn declare that be would
not take any till his condition* were complied with. Under medical advice he waa
then -eized and, despite his attempts to free
himself, he was rendered quite passive. His
mouth avas then forced open by mean* of a
gag, and the assistant-surgeon pumped into
his stomach a good meal of milk. After
this operation prisoner resumed hia last,and
up to Tuesday had not taken any more food.
An attempt was made to induce him to take
part in the usual walking exercises, and he
wa, carried into the courtyard. The nine
or ten men, however, who carried him into
the yard were not able to make him walk.
When they got him there, he lay down and
doggedly refused to movo an Inch. He waa
eventually carried back to the cell.
