MiillT.
Afler _lcir]iing for some time I awoke
suililenly and completely, with n vivid
Ki'iiHi- upon mc of not t-nag alone in the
room. 1 opened my eyes and stun-il
round, Lut without lifting my head
from the pillow. Soniotimi-s on waking
up in a .1 range room it has taken me a
influent or two lo reeolleet when- I
whs, hut in I his MM I   IfOOgnixad the
nr anil its   furniiure in  an instant.
The candle hail burnt low and was beginning to gutter. A t-uarter of an
hour more ami I ahould he left in.lark
iii-s". All waa silent, with a deathlike, oppresssivo silence anch as one
never experiences, nave in lonely
eountry plat-m, such as the town knows
nothing of. Not a lirenth of w-iiul to
stir the la-ranches ouiside, not the
timid scratching of a mouse behind the
wainscot, not even the faint friendly
thud of far-oil' hoofs on the frosty
high road. Nature, animate and inanimate, might have lieen struck with
eternal death, and I the lust man left
alive in a world of shadows. I shivered involuntarily, and drew the Iinl-
clothes more closely nl.rnit. me.
As 1 have already said, there was a
vivid sense upon me at the moment of
waking of not lieing alone iu the room.
I hail a feeling as if some one had lieen
Lending ovr ma and breathing lightly
on my forehead. 1 could feel the terror that shone out of my eyes in that
lirst waking Btarn round the room,
while my glance travelled from the
clothes i-upliiiai'd on one side, with the
chair still in front of it thai I hail put
there, to the locked door on the other
side.
Hut when nothing met my view
suve the commonplace room nnd its
commonplace furniture—as like a hun
dred other inn rooms 1 had slept in at
various times as one pea is like another
—and when with a quick Bwish I had
i lush ed hack the curtains at Ihe head
of the lied and had satisfied myself
that no one was hidden behind them—
the terror that had gripped my heart
but a moment before began to loosen
its hold. Another minute, and I
dropped back with a rebound into the
world of work-a-ilay realities, in whicli
uch things as ghostly fancies and midnight tremors are either unknown or
known only to be ridiculed. With a
shrug and   a  yawn 1   nestled   down
UUIUllUSt  in V   ullluwb, una  ui'iU'r I.    Ul.i.-
tal ,„p,..o--....iu.ii never io rat potwu
trout for supper again. A minute or
two later the death-like silence was
broken by the faint chiming of some
faraway clock. I put forth a lazy
hand.found my watch under the pillow,
aud drew it out to ascertain the time.
It was exactly half past one. I was
1 putting my watch back and was con
-ratulating myself that f had still
seven cozy hour3 of bed before me,
when my wandering glance was caught
and fixed by a strange and sinister-1
looking shadow on the ceiling   of my
room.
1 stared at it with  wide-open eyes;
and, as I stared, so vivid and  realistic
did it look, my heart for a moment   or
two seemed to stand still in dread   ex
.cctaiiey, and 1 felt as if I were aliout
for   a   moment—th.	
swallowed ine up.
As a rule the impressions which print
themselves ou our mental tablet. .Iin
j ing the dark hours, bowevM vivid thev
may seem at the lime, look but dim
and faded reproduction, of thems. h . ,
in the clear light of morning Bo it
was in the present caw. The recollection of my midnight faucii _ served
as food for a smile over breakfast ; then
more serious matters claimed me, and
I put In.-in aside as so many other
IriHes an- put aside, to Is- remembered
pi-rchaiie.', at some odd moment now
and thin, or, perchance, forgotten for
ever.
Two days   later I  found   myself  in
London,    where   some   terrible   news
awaitad me.    My dear   friend,   Osric
lmray, had lieen  murdered—murdered
and robbed while travelling by railway.
It appeared   that   hehad   been   from
home, transacting certain business con
Dented with the bank, and   was on his
return journey, having in his possession
a large sum in notes and drafts, when
be met his sad fate.     He  had bribed
the guard to lock the door of his compart ment and so keep otlier passengers
out, but atacortainsrationhewasfound
stabbed to the  heart.   The   bag that
had contained his property was missing
and the   carriage  door   was unlocked.
Purse, meton, jewellery—all were gone.
It   was   evident   that th-.   murderer,,
whoever he might be, must have quitted
his own compartment while   the train
wnstn route,   have obtained   access Io
lmray's compartment,   probably  while
the latter was asleep,   and having  ac
complished his dreadful purpose,  have
gone back along the foot-boards of the
carriages to   his own  seat.    A daring
deed to do.   without a doubt, but  certainly not au  impossibility.     At  the
next station the murderer   had doubtless left   the   train like   any ordinary
passenger, and had  mingled wiih,  and
been lost among the   crowd before the
discovery of   his crime.    So effectually
had he taken his   precautions that all
efforts to trace him proved   utterly unavailing.    Gradually, as time  went on
the excitement of the public wore itself
out, and the attention of the police became absorbed   in other and    more im
media'e duties.
To all appearance, lmray's murder
was destined to add one more to the
long list of undiscovered crinns. I
mourned my friend long and sincerely.
If any recollection of the foolish  c.pju.
lin,.t, nrp lu'l •"'"•J-1 '   .'.„,„.'i-.,    It   was
speedily dismissed as something unworthy of serious thought. But it
cerlainly did strike mo as a singular
coincidence that tho murder took place
on the very morning and, as nearly as
could be calculated, at the very hour
that I had been startled by that strange
shadow on the ceiling of my bedroom.
It struck me as a singular coincidence,
but as nothing more.
Some six or seven months had passed

Ihe bed, projected by the light of tht
candle on to the ceiling, but distorted
in the act, as shadows often are distorted, beyond ordinary recognition.
Bnt all bough I was perfectly satisfied
in my own mind as to the cause of the
shadow, I was none the less impressed
by tin. singularity of the effect thus
obtained. What I Baw was the representation of n man, cloaked and wearing a slouched hat—of a man with a
remarkably hooked and parrotlike
nose- in the act of stooping over some
one or something unseen, and striking
down at the same moment with a knife
or short dagger. Although nothing
but a shadow, it seemed instinct will
a sinister and murderous purpose. Lit
seemed to breathe from its every curve.
You almost felt as if you could see the
victim An instant more and thit
Jagger woultl descend.
1 stretched forth my hand and moved
the candlestick a couple of inches
further to the right. At once the
eff.ct was gone. The shadow was si ill
there, but it was a shadow without
meaning or purpose. The slouched
hat was gone, the hooked nose was
gone, the dagger was gone. Then I
moved the candlestick a few inches to
the eft, the result lieing the production of another unmeaning shadow
like nothing I had ever seen before.
I   replaced the   candlestick
hills   sleeping    around,   whose   sacn
silence  we seemed so rudely to disturb.
I let   down the  window to   obtain a
breath of   fresh air.    A minute   later
the train shot into a tunnel.
From my seat close to the open
window 1 could see the clear relleetion
of each lighted compartinent on the
black damp wall of the tunnel. There,
too, was my own shadow, sharply
focu.sed on the wall, as I sat peering
forward with the peak of my uavelling
cap pulled well over my brows. And
there too, as I lived, and emanating
,„._,,. from the next compart ment, was a
with second shadow   still more   sharplv d

where it had first stood.    1 wanted to
reproduce the first shadow, but the re
suit was something altogether different.
Slightly piqued  at my   ill-success,   I
moved ihe candlestick here and tbere,
_ constantly varying the   shape   of  the

ONC. P. E. RIGHT OF WAY. Then, all ai ouce, the candle flared out
lined than   mine—the twin  shudow of
that   other   shadow   1 had   soon   six
months   before   in my inn   bedroom !
Ho   well   did I   remember   its  every!
feature—if  a shadow   can be   said to
have features-that it was   impossible
for me to be  mistaken.    There, as  be
fore,   was   the   cloaked and   stooping
figure,   the  slouched hat, the   parrotlike nose, and there, above all, was the
uplifted arm and the baud that clutched
a dagger.    1   seemed   to  freeze  as  I
looked.    Not   to have   saved   my life
could I have either  stirred or  spoken
during those few moment..    As before,
the shadow was   motionless,   or would
have been hut for the slight o-icillaiioii
of the train.   The   tragedy, if such it

dagger did not fall—the unseen victim
put forth no arm in self-defence.
Another minute and we were out of
the tunnel, and the shadow, focussed
no longer on the black enclosing walls,
radiated into space and vanished. I
was more disturbed iu my mind than
I would have cared to own. What
did tho second appearance of this
same ominous shadow protend
it sent as a warning, or aa
Was
good proof thai my mental equipoise
was not quite so finely adjusted asi hud
fondly imagined it to be. Had I laid
the ease liefore iny doctor, his verdict
would have been that I had overworked
myself, anil that nil 1 needed was rest
and change of   scene.
About this time I received a   commission (o paint a   picture illustrative
of a certain phase of low—clans I. m i in
life.    In my search for types and faces
to embody in mv picture, I found   myself after nightfall ou several   occasions
in some of the lowest   neighbourhoods,
and among some of the vilest dent, that
the metropolis had at that time reason
to be    ashamed     of.     1 had     several
i.ci'unintanoos    among    the      police,
and  under   iheir   sheltering   wings   I
visiter! sundry   places   into   which   it
wonld not have been   safe   for   me lo
venture  alone.
Said   one   of   these   acquaintances,
Sergeant Smith, to me one night,  after
we had been lhe round of several queer
places:   "There's oftenaruui lot in here,
sir, though mostly foreigners.   Suppose
wc finish up by taking a prep at them."
The place he spoke of was a mean aud
dingy-looking cafe, situated in a moan
and dingy   atreet   somewhere   in   the
purlieus of Snho aud Leicester Square.
We pushed   open   the swing-door and
and went in, and at once I could   have
fancied that I was hundreds   of  miles
from London, and that I had   lost my
self in some low   neighborhood   of the
Quartier Latin.    Out   with   the place
and the   people   found   there I   have
nothing here to do—or   rather, 1 have
to do with one person only.    I did not
sec him   when I fiist   wem in, nor till
after I had sat down and ordered a cup
of coffee.    But   as   soon   as I did see
him, or   rather,  as   soon  as I caught
sight of the shadow   reflected on   the
wall beyond htm, I started lo  my feet
with   an   exclamation   that   turned a
do.en suspicious pairs of eyes on nie in
a   moment.      On   the   coarse   .'■bite-

The Standard gives an outline of the

a special jury list "draan from classes
not liable to intimidation" shall be
framed for the trial of u certain class
of offenders. A provision will give
the authorities of crime "without any
charge being madv in public court."
This looks like business ihat will be
followed at once by martial law and
murder. When Sir Michael Hicks

the bill he was surprised and proposed

reasonable to liclieve that he bribed
the fourteen dishonest slaves who

is one of the fourteen, because his sou
is employed by the government : no
one was surprised by Ned's conduct,
hut Lieut.-Col. Baker, of Kootenay,

The pious people of Chilliwhack
have presented a petition to the local

petition contains a suggestion to commit a robbery ; but the settlers forget
that the Indian's title to land is the
best in the Province. Thesspious thiives
believe that might is right, and we are
all amazed when we hear that au

The Indians are tame, and therefore

Tlie shocking exhibition of Thursday
last, must have created a strong feeling
throughout the country against a system
of Government that permits men like
Mr. Robson to hold the honorable position of minister. It must have occurred
to those who were present in the House,
or even those who read the very meagre
reports, that a (iovernment composed
of men like Mr. Robson must be destructive to the welfare of any community, and that no one can be surprised
if such measures as the Kootenay Bill,
the Settlement Bill, and the gift of the
public domain to the Railway Comiiany
for s*>eculalive purposes, should be the
result. If men like Mr. Kobson are a
misfortune for the country, which they
pretend to goverh, their presence in the
Executive Council must be valuable to
some persons who procure their elevation, and know how to appreciate their
services. 'I'he charges enumerated in
the motion of Mr. Orr were evidently
considered with much care, and were
well sup)>orted by facts, not only in the
sha|>c of documentary evidence but the
testimony of the mover and seconder
who heard Mr. Robson make the statements, repeatedly, upon which the motion was based. In a House of Assembly where the members are supposed,
if not actually, to be, at least, conduct
themselves like, gentlemen, the defense
of Mr. Robson must have rendered
such an hypothesis untenable. It may
be well to remind those members on
the Government side, who covered the
retreat of Mr. Robson by their votes, of
the old Spanish proverb, " Show me
the man and I'll judge hiin by his com
pany." Of course, those amongst them
who are endowed with a certain amount
of self res*>ect, will try to shield themselves by saying that it looked like persecution, that it was an attack on the
Government, through one of its mem
bers ; that Mr. Robson's extraordinary
conduct and language were evoked by
the strong feeling of injustice in being
selected for the constant object of at
tack by the opposition. This is the
merest nonsence and is very discreditable
to the persons who stoop to use it as an
excuse for shutting their eyes to the
real merits of the case. So far from
trying to cover up and stifle the accusations brought against Mr. Robson, they
should have carefully investigated every
charge and purged themselves of the
onus which must rest upon them of
being particeps criminis. If Mr. Rob-
| alleged to have been committed by him,
he would not have given expression to
language which even our local journals
thought it prudent to suppress; he
would have insisted upoa having a
searching investigation in order to make
the charges recoil upon the heads of his
traducers. But, this he did not do;
his conscious guilt left him nothing but
personal abuse and the vilest invective,
that would have disgraced the entire
Province had it been published. We
have heard it stated, that the Government members had a meeting in caucus
and came to the conclusion that in
order to save the Government, it would
be necessary to swallow the horrible
mess prepared for them by Mr. Robson,
and simply vote down the motion. The
Victoria Times commenting on Mr.
Robson's defense, says :—
" His spn.ch was disgraceful la the extreme, as well'for its unblushing coiif.»sion
mm for its outrageous insolence aud venomous
abuse. Kor the oredit of oar legislative mm
•embty, and the good name of our public
men. it is sincerely to be hoped that sueh a
tirade of Billingsgate may never be heard
again.
" The opposition proved to the House and
to the country, during the discussion, that
it matters not how reprehensible or illegal
the actions of members of the (iovernment
may be, the supporters are ever ready to
form themselves into a whitewashing committee, such as voted yesterday, to retain
men in their position who bave set the laws
of the provinco at defiance. It wu intimated by Mr. Bole, while addressing the
house, that the " Committee " wonld
quire to have on hand a large stock of
brushes and whitewash between now aud
the end of the session. Our opiuiou is that
the " Committee " is equal to the task
The speech of Mr. Bole was quite
worthy »f that gentleman's acknowledged
talent as a debater, and will raise him
greatly in the estimation ol the public.
His language, though cuttingly severe,
was appropriate, and presented nothing
that the profunctory defencers of Mr.
Robson could refer to as unfair. They
were reduced to sneers or the usual
lawyers' weapons—the efforts to twist
some descisions of Ottawa judges into
precedents for Mr. Robson's conduct.
In fairness to the Attorney General, we
again quote from the Times .—
" We felt some commiseration for the Attorney (jeneral, who was consciously weak
in his defence of his colleague. The exigency of the position preclmloil silence on
his part, and hence he had to make the best
of a bad case. But he damned the Provincial Secretary with faint praise, and sought
to justify by quoting precedents, the debasement nf the electorate by wholesale bribery.
Alex. E. B. Davie is net the man we take
him to be if he would not sooner cut off hia
right arm   rather  than do a "dishonorable
thing to secure his own election ; how then
can he justify tbe purchase of a constituency
with public muuey. Surely be does uot
care ao much lor office, or for tbe retention
of Hon. John Robaon in the cabinet, thst he
is prepared to defend in another what he
would condemn in himaelf *"
The ordeal was a terrible one for the
Government, and has certainly inflicted
a wound that cannot be cured. It has
been proved that one of its most im*)or-
tani members gained his seat by what
has been denounced as bribery and corruption. In this Province, we are
aware, that these charges are not looked
upon as the heinous crimes, deserving of
prompt political death, they would be
regarded in the Old Country', hut they
will, nevertheless, be felt by the people
of British Columbia, as disgraceful to
their l-egislatiire and nothing emanating
from Mr. Robson will ever be regarded
with favor. The paltry little bids of
Mr, Robson and his friend Mr. Higgins,
for popular favor, such as woman suffrage, women as school trustees, |ieti
tions industriously worked up in various localities, on the subject of temperance and licenses, will all fall to the
ground, owing to the knowledge of their
origin. It is much to be regretted lhat
laudable efforts like those made by the
advocates of temperance and moral
observances, cannot find a better exponent that Mr. Robson ; however good
the suggestion may be, inviting legislation, the mouthpiece at once invites
criticism and involuntary opposition.
'The advocacy ot Mr. Robson always
recalls to the mind, hypocrisy and political clap-trap. We mention these
facts to show how heavily the Government is handicapped by the presence of
Mr. Robson as a member of the Cabinet, and how utterly impossible it will
be to continue, under such circumstances, to struggle against popular
opinion. We recommend the Attorney
General and his colleagues to hand in
their checks while they have a small
vestige of reputation left ; the revelations to come, may affect more than
Mr. Robson.

Mr. Robaon made his budget speech on
Monday last aod would seem to have lieen
revenging himself for the exposure to which
he was subjected a few days liefore. If this
was his, object he certainly succeeded very
well, for he informed the people of British
Columbia, that the result of his four years
management of our affairs is simply bauk
ruptcy. He has managed to pile on deficiency after deficiency until we are about half
uu 'Ktne igu4*lA^t.fd. as the reyenue under
would be very difficult to aay what we may
owe if he ia permitted to handle the money
for another four year*. Thoae facta are self
evident, aa also, his cool effrontery. How
does he recommend ua to get out of our diffi
oulty I By allowing him to borrow a million
and add considerably to our taxes I Our
readers mnst remember the inflated bombast
he indulged in, the laat time ho made a bud
get speech, and how absurdly extravagant he
was in hia statements about the wealth that
waa about to flow into our provincial exchequer. His trash about t'ie millions we
were to realize from the Vancouver lots
which have done little more than pay the
cost of mapping, surveying and selling.
We have surely learned enough about Mr.
Robson's baseless statements to hesitate hefore giving him the power to pledge our
oredit for another million ; when that is
spent another million will be aaked for and
new taxes imposed to provide for interest
and sinking fund. It may be quite tnie
that he has a banal of servile followers who
are prepared to vote anything ho may ask
for, but that fact ahould not prevent the
people putting in sueh a decided protest
that minuter, and majority alike would be
stopped in their wasteful career. The cooking of publio accounts ia a well-known pro-
cess and we ara not to know what becomes
of the funds. All we know is that nur
noble Finance Minister wants tn borrow
another million to be spent aa he and hia
colleagues deem beat, and that we are to
pay additional taxes io oonsequence. We
ahould recommend a halt being called.
What are onr ministers doing about the
1250,000 from the railway company ? If that
sum ia recoverable, all right; that will help
our finance minister to tide over his worst
difficulties, and hia flattering picture of the
increasing wealth of the Province ought at
least, to enable him to creep out of hia poverty. If the money cannot be recovered, the
deed conveying the aix thousand acres oan
he cancelled and the land would doubtless
realize a considerable aum, If Mr. Robson's
statements have the slightest foundation.
The people of thia Provinoe must not allow
themselves to be fleeced with impunity nor
deceived by a finance minister wbo may in
aome way desire to screen the railway company. If our ministers have given away
the public land without consideration in any
font, thay ought to be impeached and made
as far as possible, personally responsible.
No one can now doubt that the land at English Bay was given for speculative purposes
in which the Province was to be made a
partner; but the speculation haa utterly
failed, and aa It waa entered into without
the consent of our people—the latter being
the only sufferers—we must insist upon
being recouped aa far as possible. One
thing must be very dear, that, if we must
provide funds to carry on the Oovernment,
we must have men in office in whom we can
have some faith. Tlie present ministry took
office with a great flourish of trumpet, aud
their constant cry daring tbeir entire career
waa the wonderful contrast their able management exhibited when compared with that
of their predecessors. We now find that they
are unmitigated humbugs and have landed
us in bankruptcy besides giving awsy our
lands.

erected wooden barracks for an unlimited number of men ; that they are
rapidly concentrating troops near the
frontier, and that the new repeating
rifle has lieen furnished to a great |>or-
tion of the army. We learn ih.it the
German troops arc being nutdc familiar
with the new wea|Min, thai tbe requisite
additions have been made tn the respective branches of the forcer*, and
that generally the Fatherland is bristling
with bayonets all round. W'e lean: that
Russian Poland is Imle better than a
great ramp and that Austria la timing
the forts, coneentraiing ti.n>;.s Uld constructing railways lo hei (lallician frontier. We learn that Bulgaria ami Knu-
mania are calling out theii respective
armies; that Turkey, having already a
great force under anus, has called out
the reserves. Wc arc luld that the
Ameer of Afghanistan is creating a
great army to oppose another great
army of his reliellious subjects and that
British troops are going to help the
Ameer. We notice that a Chinaman
lately arrived in bis native land, inluiins
his friends on this continent thai the
Chinese Government prohibits the emigration of any more Chinamen, because
they are all wanted for soldieis; in such
a case, China will have a pretty big
army, the population being somewhere
about three hundred millions. England is recruiting and building and hiring fast cruisers, as tjuickly as she can.
In fact all the World is, and has been,
preparing for a great war, and lhat is
all we can learn. In olden times a
moderate amoutit of preparation sufficed
before war was commenced, and the
rest of the business was done during
the progress of hostilities. No one
seems to know what the coming war is
to be about. We know very well that
Russia wants Constantinople ; she bas
been wanting that place for the last
hundred years and it is quite likely she
will be without it another hundred years.
But Russia never goes to war when
people expect her to do so; she generally begins when she thinks other [iow
ers are unprepared ; so that, acrording
to that system she is not likely to go lo

ut massing troops in various ui.__.;on
may be devised simply to tire out her
neighbors with evpense ami then she
will assure them of her peaceful disposition and induce them to disband their
troops. The Czar will visit all the sover
eigns, embrace and kiss them all round
then go home and commence war On
somebody. Germany since the septen
nate has been granted, has forgotten all
about France, and is making a lion ol
Del-esseps; who knows if the two nations—Germany and France—will not
shake hands and swear eternal friendship ? As for the Chinese and AITghans
they often appear on the Stage in their
war paint and then retire into private
life to cut one another's throats at their
leisure. If we look al matters general*
ly in this light, we might safely predict
that there will be no war for some time
to couue. We really think that the
Governments of the countries likely to
come to blows would rather lie excused
but for reasons which they arc .li.in
clined to admit, but which will bring
about a collision somewhere and when
people least expect il. We have before
pointed to the wave of democracy and
socialism which ia undermining society,
destroying all the social liJcmaiks and
uprooting molality in every form. To
allow this decomposition of social unlet
to proceed, would lie lo throw the world
back to barbarism and general chaos.
It is evident that religion has lost
much of its hold upon the masses, and
if there was no change to take place
and people went on increasing whilst
the means of gaining a livelihood continued to decrease, life and property
would soon be not worth an limir's purchase. The present war when it breaks
out will not be merely to gain a kingdom, to save a throne, to satisfy revenge
or to preserve a province ; it will be to
preserve civilization from the all destroying mob led by worthless vagabonds, who love anarchy for itself and
hate social order, law, and everything
that restrains vice and universal plunder. Thus the Governments have no
choice; to stand still with great armies
to provide for, is impossible, but they
dare not disband them, because they
would only be providing trained soldiers
for revolution; and the pretense for
war abroad is still too thin; none of
them could furnish an excuse that the
majority would deem valid. The old
Russian trick of fomenting a rebellion
and then sending an army to *iut it
down, is thoroughly worn out, and the
only chance for her will be to get
France and Germany engaged and then
volved in the war when it begins, and it
will be prosecuted with the vigor thai.
in waging war, each nation is endeavor.

societies and kindred brotherhoods wil'
be silenced for years to come. A hy.

when they think they have had enough

dhl their h-est under the circmnsUnceH, to
parry the blows, but their -lefcnw was very
weak and only made people think thst the
ohastteaaMSt wan well merited.
Mr. Orant, Mr. Heaven and Mr. S«>mlin,
asiiiiitetl iu the flagellation, the latter effectively, aud although his cat-like tenacity to
political existence may give Mr. Kobson the
.Appearance of a perfect survival, he will
never be himself again iu the House.
The House adjourned till Friday.
Fkiuay, March 11th.
Ily way of diversion, Mr. Turner referred
to the Udlot obliteration afiair, but was told
by the Speaker that that subject hsd lieen
disposed of by the report furnished to the
House.
Mr. Dunsmuir in a weak attempt to annoy
the enemy, proposed tho i e -appointment of
the committee. Such tactics are not very
creditable to a House of Assembly.
Mr. Orr moved for correspondence and
papera connected with the peace preservation forcoat Vancouver.
The Attorney-General said that it would
not be advisable to produce documents
in the present stage of  the proceeding...
On division the motion was voted down.
Mr. Martin moved tor correspondence re
Utive to laud in the rear of lot 204 ou the
north side of Burrard Inlet.    Passed.
Some bills wt.ru read a first time.
Mr. McLeese called the attention of the
Government to the state of the Ashcroft
bridge which was iu danger of being carried
away.
The Jury bill was reported complete with
amendments.
Mr. Ilobson moved the second reading of
his bill to add another unworkable chapter
to his education hodge podge. Really this
education buHinesB is lH-coming disgusting.
So far an it eau be made availahle,it is turned
into a political machine and about a third of
the actual revenue ts npent upon it. The
people of this Province must put a stop ti
thin vicious and unnatural system ; we have
other uses for our money besides educating
the children of people who can well atford to
pay for private tuition.
After a great waste of time the Home ad
journed till Monday when the estimates will
be tnL.cn up,
Tukhdav, March 15.
A petition was presented from tho resi
dents of Chilliwhack suggesting tliat ."-,;. 10
acres of laud were occupied by 50 Indian
fauiilief). Of counte, the meaning of this is
that a large portion of the land would Im
better occupied by white families.
Mr.  Grant   resumed   the   debate ou the
budget and scarified the Finance Ministei
he made some very good hits at Dnasmuir.
Mr. Scmlin made au excellent speech and
although the Colonist, as in duty bound, suppressed it, there can be little doubt it made
a deep impression ou the House. Ue clearly
demonstrated the untrustworthy character
of the Government aud tho suspicious alloc
tion of its inervile follower... He showed
that if the Government continues to pile
loan upon loan, the whole revenue of the
Province will be required to pay iuterest.
He gave conclusive evidence that not one
dollar of the $250,000 Dry Dock refund had
been -spent nn the mainland. The $750,000
given by the Federal Government to settle
all claims against it, and which belonged to
the Province generally, had been given lor
tho Island railway, and the $250,000 received
for the Dry Dock and promised to tbe mainland as its share, waa also used on tbe
Island. Mr. Scmlin referring to the large
grant of land to Baillie Grohman, said tbat
the Provincial Government had interfered
with matters that belonged particularly to
the Dominion Government, viz. dealing
with dams and navigable streams. He said,
looking at the record of the present Government, he certainly would not be one to en
trust them with the expenditure of another
million of the people's money.
The Donne adjourned.till evening.
Ou resuming Mr. Semlin concluded a very
eloquent speech, which has raised him considerably iu the estimation of the House.
Mr. Martin, who is one of the faithful and
useful {members of the Government following, made a long oration which was intended
to neutra'ise the ell'cct of Mr. Semliu's
peech, but it utterly failed in its object,
Mr. Orr very aptly described the Government's system of asking for a loan, spending
it, and then coming to the House to oak for
another. He pointedly criticised the ab-
mirdity of the Finance Minister's statements
in relation to the sums he expected to realise
from tin; sale of lots at Vancouver and
strongly denounced the injustice lutlictod ou
Now Westminster District iu the distribu
tion of the public fuuds.
Mr. Alien, another of the Government
lackeys, endeavored to belittle the speech of
Mr. Semlin,which, it was generally felt, had
iurticted a heavy blow on thu Government,
but as everyone will conclude, he miserably
failed.
The Attorney-General then attempted a
gtmeral reply to the opposition speakers, but
it was so very general that it did not affect
the poiuta made by the opposition in the
slightest.
Sir. Anderson said something in support
of his party.
The House then adjourned,
Wk])NK.-*imy, March 16.
Mr. Kobson brought in some more of his
temperance petitions which are becoming
disgusting tothe House.
Mr. Martin moved for a grant to provide
water for irrigation; it is highly probable
that more than enough of water will be furnished to the farmers, this year.
Col. Baktr asked for a geological survey
at the expense of the Uomiuion Government.
He might ns well ask for something witty
from Mr. Higgins.
Mr. Stenhouse asked the Government why
they had dismissed a useful and efficient
constable at Comox.
Tin. AttorueyGeneral Baid it waa for
economy. He once excused hia discharging
the son of one of his faithful followers on
the plea that the appointment had been a
"political" one (i.e.) to buy votes. The discharge of the Comox constable arose probably because his vote was not to be purchased.
Mr. Orr's bill to amend the Vancouver
Act of Incorporation passed a second reading aud was to be taken up in committee on
Friday. The Vancouver incorporation Act
requires a grnat deal of amendment, and
when it is amended it will be found to be
very little better than an abortion.
The Fireman's bill passed a second reading !
after much discussion that amused the
-.peakers interested, but nobodv else. The
Athalwsca railway bdl occupied the r-emsin-
derofthe day and did not elicit any very
sptrkling eloquence or brilliant ideas.    It is
one of thoae bills which are brought into the
House every session aud are profitable very
often, to tbeir promoters.
The House adjourned till Thursday.
A T&AJTOB IN OUS MIDST.
On Frida> U*t, the Kobs.mun daily published un .ii tide which has a great deal of
the honest John style aboat it; it is limply
a renewal of the attempt to destroy this city
io order to build up Vancouver. It would
appear that all hope of the branch or extension from Port Moody to Vancouver is about
exhausted, and in despair, it is attempted to
accustom the pooplc of this city to regard a
construction of the line from this branch to
Vancouver, as a possible event. Now everv
one cogniz-iut of the facts is fully aware
that a continuation of the branch" to thi*.
city, carried to Vancouver, would reduce
New Westminster to the status of a way
station and a very small oue at that. While
the branch terminates bere, we shall have
the C. P. X. steamers coming to this port
regularly, but if the line was continued to
Vancouver, there would btMMMMMfr
sity for them here. The specious attflWUi.
to make a case by lugging in tbe iutersUte
law receutly enacted in the United state*,
plainly shows tbat the writer o! the article
referred to, Iwlieve* the people uf this city to
be an Ignorant tet of fools. Some of our
readers must have observed that Mr. tlds,
the traffic manager of the C. P, IX., has given
notice that all contractu for through freight
to the I nited State--, will he cancelled ou and
after lit April next, and that, con'-equcutly,
so far from there being an increase of traffic
from tho United States over the C. P. K., It
is likely to be very much reducedL The
traffic from the Sound to the C. P. EL will
In a very short time disappear entirely. The
Northern Pacitic Company are fully alivo to
the desire of the C. P. R. to divert their
traffic, and they are in every way, meeting
the views of shipper.-* und passengers ; so
much so, that, instead of the C. P. K. attracting any of the traffic this way, they are
more than likely to lose Home of their own.
The N. P. Co. will have a powerful ally In
the G rand Trunk Company, w ho, it is understood, will reach the Pacific over the N. P.
line. The N. P. Co. are hurrying tho construction of the tunnel that will give them
vastly increased facilities for traffic to Taeo
mu, and they will in this way neutralize the
advantages claimed for the C. P. H. Their
proposed branch to the Sound, from the C.P.
U, was to start from somewhere about Hope,
so that it would in no way help this city.
All the ridiculous balderdash of the writer
in the local daily, is simply to throw dust in
the eyes of our citizens so as to prevent as
far as possible, any objection being raised to
the roubery of their birthright. They arc
expeeted to sit quietly by and see the trade
transferred from themselves to Vancouver ;
to sec their property rendered worthless.
The writer of the article talks about the line
from Ladner'a to Popcuin, as being likely to
help this city by having a station on the opposite side of the river. It in evident that the
writer is an unprincipled traitor, becauso he
must know that there is a toad from I-adner's
to Vancouver and that a petition bus been
largely signed during the last week to ex
pend more money iu making tbe road available for all the traffic of the North Arm
being carried to Vancouver. So that, if
these -make*, in the grass succeed with their
schemes, this city will be stripped of overy
voitigcof trade or travel ou the railway from
Popcum will carry all the produce to Vancouver via the road across Lulu and Bto
Islands, aud the farmer*- and traders from
the whole of the south side of the Fraser will
goto Vancouver for their supplies. In regard to the unprofitable character of tbis
branch, we have no concern ; the company
made a bargain which they no doubt,thought
wss a good one at the time ; wo promptly
carried out our part of the agreement M our
ratepayers have efcry reason to know, and
we expect that the company will comply
with the conditions of the contract. Our
branch being our own, must terminate iu
tbis city aud auy attempt to extern! it must
be stopped by injunctions. Tbe reference
to Port Moody and the suggestion that connection with that place may bo closed, gives
us the impression that the article in question
was written by honest John himself—bo-
cause the wish is father to the thought.
Kveryoue knowing anything about the C. P.
Railway Act must know thut Port Moody is
the statutory terminus and that connection
with that place,could not, if it was even desired, lie closed. On the contrary, when
further profit from the sale of lots at Vancouver, is supposed to he at an end, the
works will be commenced at Port Moody
and that place will be the real support of
this city. All attempts of honest John and
his companion speculators, will be unavailing to bolster up Vancouver, and thu unfortunate property holders will be sacrificed in
consequence of the failure of the speculation. The article, altogether, is a most
shameful attempt to impose upon the citizens
of New Westminster, and if any doubt existed as to tho motive of the writer, the
smallest amount of consideration should dispel it. The base ingratitude of a paper, of
the worthless character of this fraudulent
daily, which some of the people here pay
such an absurd price for, in taking the
money of our citizens and impudently betray ing tbem at the same time, exceeds auy*
thing in our experience. If the paper is
supported,after the article of Friday eveniug
last, onr citizens will ouly have to thank
themselve.- if disastrous consequences ahould
follow th** lalse impression created hy its

liy inirieiihi'il tsxatiou. He says it is proposed to ask power tn negotiate a loan of
one million dollars and to float half that
sum at once ; lint it is evident that he intends to Isy his hands on the whole sum at
ouce. Ho tells the people that the credit of
tho Province is good, that money oan l*u
got in the Knglish market uow oo very
favorable terms but no one kuowB how soon
these conditions may be changed—the nations of Europe may be involved in war and
then it would be impossible to float a loan at
all. He is evidently resolved to get
the million dollars, but if we are to
judge of the future by the past this
Isrge sum will not be expended in useful improvements but wasted in improving
the real estate of political partisans. Real
property tax, personal property tax, and
wild land tax, are all to bo increased. Au
In iiii'sl. ininisli-i- would present thu public »ith
estimate and a well defined record of the
public works to be oxecuted with this
million dollars, but the honorable John presents no estimate ; he merely says "wo owe
half a million and want another half million :
ond wc intend to get it too, and give the
Province as security for the loan." Smithe,
Robson and Davie can do as they please
bsoked by fonrteen servile representative, of
self-interest, and the people ought to be
thankful because "only onk .miu.ios" is de
mondod. If the trio declared that it is
necessary to borrow rive millions their hun.-

several days ago, and, walki.iu ou Broad

man who claimed his se.iuaiiit.in.a. He
called the count I.y his right name and title

was ami said su. "Why, cunt," said the
stranger,    "I  have often met   vou  at   my
allele's house in Washington.    Mv u  1-
Manning. I mu the nephew of toa Banco,
tary." Thestranger established his idaottty
beyond a doubt 111 tlie mind of the count by
telling of the secretary's paralytic attack.
The count hail not lead the pu-icrs, and,
being startled by the information, w as led at
once iuto a general conversation with the
.windier. "I'.y the way, count," said the
stranger, "I have just drawn a prize in a
lottery. It calls for two sets of 'Bancroft's
History of the United States.' I have no
use but for one, and I beg of you to accept
the other set.'' The count permitted himself to be persuaded to go with "Mr. Manning" to a house on Twenty-thin) street,
w-here they found several men playing cards
and drinking mild drinks. The count's
Washington frieud took a hand at a game
Uld tho count WM invited to play, but declined. His new-made friend soon exhibited
winnings of $250, but the count still declined
to take a hand. The alleged "nephew' now
began to lose, and the banker ,-all.rd on him
to square up, but he had uothing lets, than
a $100 bill.
The count was asked if he could change a
$100 bill. He said ho could not, as he had
only *-_n with him. "Mr. Manning'' then
said : "Well, let me have that ; 1 will get
this bill changed when wo go outside." lhe
count handed over his $20, aud "Manning"
played and lost everything he had, even his
9100 hill. The count now 1-egau to suspect
that he was being swindled, and said if his
money was not returned he would go to |the
police. The bunko man who had brought
In 111 allict'-il great indignation and suid:
"f)o you know, sir, who I am? Do you
know that you are talking to the nephew of
the .Secretary of the Treasury! I will have
you to understand that no man can call me a
scoundrel and live." The count replied
that he was a thief.
Some one cried out 1 "llon't have any
row with the fellow, ilive him his money
and lut him go," The first bunko mini then
suid, "We had belter settle this," and
shoved two bills into the hand of the count,
who left, but on reaching the sidewalk
found that Ile had received only two $1 hills.
He thought he would not storm the lltiusc
for the other SIS and w-cnt back to his
hotel.

shoulders ami lifting his hat said ; "Sir,
you will have to excuse me ; I do not understand your Knglish"—and with this he
passed on. — ''or. A'. )'.  ll'orlil.
At what hour of the day is a titan at his
strongest, and so fitted to do hard work with
the least weariness * The answer returned
by 1'r. Huch, from the restiltcs of his experiments mode with the dynamometer, is
that a man is at his liest when he turns out
of lied. The muscle force is greatly increased by breakfast, and it attains to its
highest point after the midday meal. It
then sinks for a few hours, rises iigoiu to-
wnitls the evening, but steadily declines
Iron night to morning. It is probable that
there is some confusion here. No doubt n
sudden and powerful etfort, such as is regis-
tered by the dynamometer, is better made
after the muscles have been for some time in
use, and auy products of their disintegration
which may have accumulated during the
night an.l sleep have been washed away by
the improved circulation that follows
waking ; but we can entertain little doubt
that sustained cfrort, whether mental Dr
bodily, could l>e best performed during the
mnruing, and not after the midday meal.
Dr. r.u.li ia, however, right in maintaining
that the two chief foes of muscular force are
overwork and idleness. Sweating whilst
working deteriorates muscle fi.rce. Many
of the greatest workers ill tin- world, thouau
not all, have been enily risers. Qui early
rising according to Dr. Huch, ought always
to be supplemented hy early breakt.i-.lin |

Mr. Bole. —Tlie rcaolution before the
Ituus* is oar ol considerable influence, an.l
nue which slmul.l demand st our bauds a
full aad iar.-fiil .It-bat*-. It had, how.-.«i,
two asr-iects, namely, a husinew* aspect, and
a serin comic one, suit according ta. principle,
he would take the business lirst, the plea
sur* afterward*. The charge involve.!, was
a grave one, namely, l-rilx-ty, anil endue in-
tiuence during an election, and that by a
Minister of tin- Crown. To the allegation*
made by the Honorable mtmehtt ■ N. w
Westminster City aud District that Mr.
Kobaou had agaiu and again told the .lectin-
that he had JIOO.OOO ol the Dry I lock money
still in the Treasury and it would lie spent
iu the District and Nauoiuio, if JMnMMMB.
uieinliers were returned, and tlir.-riti-n.-.l
them with a withdrawal of patronage ii opposition in.'ii were returned, Mr. Koheon
only gave bis own denial and some crooked
reports from his owu paper, the C/dinnlmm —
indeed in one instance even the . lemmtmuns
report stated that Mr. Itnh.nu added thi
Dry Hock nioiiey was now being *r,ent on
the mainland aud that the balauc.r would I"
spent there and an uuoiiymous li-tu-r writ
ten by some babouu utirshipp-'r who stigmatized Urr. I-iduer aud Bole as bsre faced
liars. Anonymous letters sre the w eapons
of cowards, who would fain stab in llu* dark.
aod the expressions used were those of
blackguardism aud us the receiver wss us
bad as the thief, the action of the provincial
secretary in readiug such a letter was both
cowardly and blackguardly. Ite seemed to
think his word was all "Hiwerful and that
when be made a deuial that settled the matter. Thu public accounts showud that Mr.
Kobson hail given orders for $1,000 for public
work, duriug his election and there was no
pretense, whatever, that he had any formal
or proper authority from the chief c-oinmi*-
siouerof public works, no gazette notice was
evi published, as re,[unci by law. Mr.
Robson's denial amounted to very little as it
would be in the recollection of the house
that it often happened that Mr, l.i.b-
snn made e statement on the floor
of the House—and within the hour
denied having ever made it. If the
ease were liefore a jury of fair men they
would aay ou tho evidence produced, guilty
on all counts. Mr. Robson got iu by
wheedling the Vancouvor vote to plump for
him and then he showed his gratitiulc by be
lug the first to give that city n peace pre-
servation act and damage her fair name
throughout the world, but it was ever thus:
Mr. Robson always bit the haml that fed
biro. The charge was sustained and ought
to be understood fully. The comic part of
the affair was tho Secretary lecturing on
christian charity, "the devil reproving Sin."
He rated his colleagues with being animated
by ill-feeling against him, when at the same
time he made an exhibition of ungovcrnuble
temper, the like of which was never
equalled on the floor of the House. But
anger is short madness, and in his wrutli
Mr. Robson forgot his discretion when he
taunted Mr. Orr about the Canadian Pacific
Railway Burvey, as he would no doubt find
out when Mr. Orr came to reply, but lie had
no wish to go into those matters with which
Mr. Orr was so much moro intimately uc
quaiuted. As tothe Hon. gentlemau proach
ing, he had better keep that for himself, as
on the opposition side they would none of it.
When thev wanted good advice tliey would
not trouble "Honest John"—whom thoy
knew so well. The Hon. member concluded
an eloquent address by expressing a hope
that the government majority wouhl vote
intelligently and not as a whitewashing
brigade. The opposition could not keep tli
majority from doing wrong, but if they
were determined to do dirty work for the-
govorumunt, the opposition would sec that
they had plenty of it to do.

SCORPIONS' EVES.
Scorpions have two kinds of eyes. Close
together, near the middle line of tho Hhiehl
that covers the head, there is a pair called
the medium eyes. At the outer edge of the
same shield, not far from ita outer anterior
angle, on each side there are two, three, four
or live that are called lateral eyes. Different
scorpions may have six, eight, ten or twelve
eyes, according to tbe species. The two
kinds of eyes differ to some extent, 'ihey
do not originate alike in the embryo. Lateral eyes begin with a sinking of the dermal
covering or skin, forming a little pit. Iu
this sunken portion the skin thickens ami
changes its structure somewhat to liecome
the lens, retina, eto., of the eye, which is
thus formed of a single thickness of the skin.
In the case of a medium eye there is also a
sinking of the portion necessary for tlio
organ, but the sunken portion turns to one
Bide under the other skin, which closes over
the pit; in this manner the skin in folded in
three thicknesses, out of which the eye is
then developed very much as in the spiders.

A three-pint dog with a five-quart muzzle of
heavy wire was laboriously trudging along a
New York street, recently, just after tha
rain, when he came to a small excavation.
This he mistook for an ordinary puddle, and
walked into it. The heavy muzzle carried
his nose to the Is.ttom, und only his tail
remained visible The spectacle of a dog's
tail furiously lashing the water attracted the
attention of a neighboring apple-woman.
After satisfying herself that it was not the
sea-serpent, she caught hold of it and set

Tbe genesis of military titles is peculiar.
But when once applied they stick, as many
other adhesive matters will. Probably the
following manner uf acquiring the title of
"major" will bo now to many : An insurance company in bringing an action, in one
of the Federal courts sitting in San EranciBoo,
against ono William Kedeker. Plaintiff
placed James (alias Major) Wells ou the
stand, to rebut certaiu testimony. "Are
yon a major!" asked Attorney Taylor.
Witness admitted that he had registered as
"Major Wells." The attorney asked:
"Where did you get your title!" Witness
displayed some reluctance in answering, but
on being pressed replied : "I never was in
the army, but I was once drum major in a
brass band.
Isaac Barnes, of Boston, had a wife who
was a devoted Baptist. Now, the Baptists
were about to build a chapel, and Mrs.
Barnes was interested iu procuring sob-
scriptious to that end. She spoke to Mr.
Barnes about it, aud as he intimated a willingness to subscribe, she sent a collector to
urge him further. The collector said ho
understood that Mr. Barnes was willing to
subscribe. Mr. Barnes said he was, "I
may as wi 11 say at once," aaid he, "that my
subscription will be five thousand dollars."
This fairly took the collector's breath away.
"That is a splendid gift," ho managed to
say, after a while ; "we shall lie very deeply
obliged." "Not at all," said Barnes ; "but,'
he added, "there is a condition tn the gift."
"Oil," said the collector, "I'm sure any

about that," said Barnes ; "the c lit ion in

course, these practices did nnt escape the
attention of President Kirkland, ao ho went
up to the old hostelry and asked to see the

was greatly disturbed, as be know he should

Dr. Kirkland, in a grave tone, "I understand iny young men oome up bere and

Tbere is a custom practiced in northern
China of Using hot water every morning to
wash the face and hands. Men, women,
aud children must have a basin of clean hot
water when they get up, or before they
eat their breakfast, in which to batb. feet
and hands at least. Even beggar* bave hot
water or use none at all. Seasons do not
affect the custom, lu summer, when one
wuiil'l think a cold bath would be grateful,
hot water is used all the same. No one
would insult his guest by offering cold water
to wash iu. The water it almost scalding
hot, ami the towel for wiping ia first used as
a wash-rag. City people use little cakes of
aoap, which removes dirt better than foreign
soap. Country people are often too poor to
buy it, or it is not convenient to get. Foreigners think this hot-water bathing weakens
the eyes. Certainly no one cue live in
China without noticing the nomlier of sore
eyes which he sees. — The Artntnr/tit.
In city life the health of the house is in
the pipes, and if anything ia wrong in them
there is death in the cup. But many a

way, ami yet suspects a leak that may be
letting iu diptliena and typhoid air ou her
family, let her buy a vial of oil of pepper-

pointed others to follow the course of the
pipes through other parts of the house, let
her go herself to the topmost basin of the
topmost floor, close the door of the room
before uocorkiug the vial, fill the basin
there full of sodding water, into which her
peppermint oil shall be poured, and then pull
up thu stopper and let the contents of the
bardu escape as usual, if the other people,
who are following the course of the pipes,
detect uowhere at the remaining basins, or
along the walls, or at any exposed points,

lie tolerably sure that there is no leak in the
pipes. For where there is the most iufiui-

A New York editor had a curious experience a number of years ago, when the
Tweed ring and the corrupt judges, Barnard,
Cardozo uud McCuun, were being vigorously
exposed. This editor was particularly
savage upon Barnard, who waB an excited.
ingly popular man among his own court
ollicers, all of whom were of rough natures
—dangerous men. Oue day Tweed sent a
note to this editor, asking to see him, and
on going to the office he was told by Tweed
that there was a plan on foot to "sand-bag"
him if ho did not stop the exposures uf
Barnard. Tweed begged the editor to atop,
and told him he had better look out for his
life, and finally begged him to be cautious,
because if any harm came to him the blame
would fall upon his (Tweed's) head. "No
harm can oome to me after that," said the
editor. "Why not!" asked Tweed. "Because ub booh as I return to my office I shall
write out the facts of your threats to have
me assiuated—" "My threats !" exclaimed
Tweed. "To have me assinated by Barnard's men ; and I shall place copies In the
biiinls of law officers to lie opened in case
anything happens to mo." Aud he not only
did this, but sent a copy to Tweed. A few
days later Tweed sent him word that he
need not fear, and the editor found, whenever he went into Barnard's court, that hi-
officers were particularly polite to him. One
of theso kept a road house, which Barnard's
followers frequented, and here, too, the
threatened editor always found himself fully

ACU1.E FOR DIPHTHERIA,
R Munch, proprietor of a drug establishment in Leipsic, Saxony, publishes in the
Pli/irrnaehist., a medical paper, a remedy for
dipththcria, which has had surprising success. He urgently presses all physicians to
try it for the benefit of all patients suffering
from tho disease, and also requests the press
to publish it.
He says | "My little daughter, seven
years of ago, has had tho diphtheria twice
within some weeks, with severe fever, about
105 fiihreiiheit. Wc gave with great success rectified oil of turpentine (oleum
terebinthinae rectificatum). Dose, one
teaapoouful in tho morning and the same at
evening."
Adults should take one teuspoonful.
Afterward drink a little lukewarm milk to
alley the burning in tho throat.
For children the second doBC can be
mixed with milk, which will render it easier
to take.
The result is really marvelous. The
inflammation of the abnormal diphtheritic
spots in the throat grows lighter at the edges
and in tins way they gradually shrink until
in twenty-four hours they disappear entirely
leaving no Bign,
To quiet tho inflamed tonsils the throat
was gargled at first every two hours, and
then every threo hours, with the followihg
gurgle: One ounce chlorate of potash to
forty ounces of distilled water.
This remedy has been used with perfect
satisfaction both by adults and children,
not one case ending fatally. The Milwaukee
VolksliU/tt quoted this remedy from a German paper, and afterward received a letter
from a subscriber iu Mitchell County, Iowa,
saying that "a child iu the writer's family
was attacked by diphtheria, treated by local
physicians, and died ; then four other members ot the same family were similarly
attacked, treated by this remedy, and, I am
huppy to tell you, all recovered."
A New York physician Bays that there Is
nothing better for the treatment of diphtheria than tar smoke. It has been used by
tuatiy physicians ill New York, and found
moat efficacious. The method consists in
closing the room tightly and burning a
quantity of pitch on a red-hot stove or
shovol. Thu smoke dissolves the fibrous
matter that chokes the patient, and gives
almost instant relief, A remedy so easy to
try is certainly worth remembering.
A BRIGHT IDEA.

"Veil, dot fellow dot comes by my house
and robs me from iny f run."
"Robs you of your'frau,' What kind of

whoae knowledge of the German language
wan very limited.
"My fran vos no animal. She vos a lady.
She vim my wifo."
"Ohi Oh! She's your wife, oh! Well, my
friend, I am sorry, but I can't help you,"
said tho kind-hearted guardian.
Tho Oerman lookod nonplussed for several
minutes, and finally a smile lit up his round
face and a bright glitter appeared in his

haa not been ascet-taiued.

WHY THE NIGHTINGALE MINI'S.
Tb* Westpheliaun have a carious explanatory myth regarding the nightingale.
Thev iiuajrio* that the bird's song may he-
rendered in the syllables of human speech :
Is tit, is tit, is tit, lo wit, to wit,—Trizy,
Trixy, Trizy, to bucht, to bucht. But tlie
but syllabi*, are the usual shepherd's cry
to bis dog when he wishes the sheep col-
I*, ted. Therefore Trixy must be the name
of the dog te whom the cry to bucht is
addrened. Therefore the nightingale must
have been a shepherdess, whom a shepherd
cursed because she always postponed the
marriage she had promised. He uttered the
wish thst she might not sleep till the day of
judgment. Nor does ahe, for may not her
voice «till be beard at night as she cries tr.
bucht, to bucht, to bucht to her good dog
Trizy!   The same people give a strange >\-
Slanation of th* face of the shun), or
-under, which is all awry, with its eyes on
one sad* of it* face instead of being straight,
like the eyes of most other fish. Originally
ita face was a straight and sensible fish fane,
but on* day it insulted a passing herring and
mad* a Booking face at it, lor which, as a
punishment, it wa* never able to draw its
t-oe back to ita original position.— 77,.

THE  MABVHLS  OF   PHOTOGRAPHY
TO BK APPLIED TO ASTRONOMY.
Can we wonder, if astronomers should
already boldly entertain the thought of
making a complete survey of tho heavens by
means of photography ! Admiral Mouohez
has shown that, In the course of ten years,
fully 16,000,000 of stars might be made to
record their exact position and true relative
brightness in a series of large photographic
charts I Nothing done by man since astronomy wa* a science, cau be compared with
such a work as this, whicli yet might be
well accomplished in a decade of years. But
even all this, wonderful as it is, seems less
impressive than what has been done and
what astronomers are even now planning to
do iu applying t'ie photographic eye of
science to analyzing tho structure of remote
suns. Already they have made the waves
of light from many of the leading stars
record their story on tbe tiny shore of photographic ;film, alter journeying millions of
millions of mile* through space. But now
a oomplete survey is to be made iu this way.
A giant eye, ao constructed that not only
will it gather, but it will sift the light from
multitudes of stars at once, will be directed
in succession to different parts of the
heavens. For an hour at each view will
thi* monstrous eye, more wonderful hy far
than the ichthyoaauriu eye with which we
began, gaze analyzingly on many hundreds
of (stars at onoe, leaving ou record at tho
close of it* survey the photographic speoter
of all those star*, by which the eleineuta
present in them, nay, the very condition in
which theae elements exist, will be written
down in letter* and word* which (for the
astronomer) ther* is no mistaking. Truly,
a wonderful era of astronomical research Is
now beginning. Probably the next half-
century will reveal more about the millions
of tenant* of interstellar space thau all the
year* which hav* elapsed aince Ilipparchua,
noticing a new star, waa led to form the
first known star catalogues.--/ 'on/hill Mi/.ia-
STORY OF   THE  AMERICAN    MAIL
SERVICE.
The early history of the postal service between thia country aud its "plantations"
across the Atlantic is ourioua and interesting.
In the first attempt to establish such a service it wa* proposed that the packet boats
should sail irom tbe Isle of Wight. On the
25 of January, 170S, the lords of trade reported to the Earl of Nottingham on a proposal mad* by Sir Jolfry Jeffreys for establishing a regular aervice of packet boats between that Island and New York. The
lords conferred with Jeffreys anil learned
the exact nature of bis proposals, which
were to place on the Hue two ships, for sailing or rowing, each of 160 tons burden and
carrying fourteen gun* and a crew of forty
men. One of these ships, would, he said, he
ready to "part" a few days after entering
into sn agreement, and sail direct to New
York, remain there thirty days and then return. The next jacket was to start two
mouth* after the tint. Jeffreys reserved the
right of taking passengers and fifty tons of
merchandise on each voyage. For remuneration he aaked th* sum of £300 kinonth.and
stipulated that the ship* should receive
"effectual protection.''
The aot of 1710 give* us a curious insight
into one of the moat frequent cauBes of delay in the conveyance of letter* from one
part of America to another. This was the
rapacity of the ferryman in levying blackmail on the post boys, so aa to speak, notwithstanding that the ferries were to have
been free for the post. So it was enacted
that any delay on a ferryman's part of a
longer time than half an hour should be punished by * fln* of £6. By the act of 1710 an
increase in tlie]po8tagc,'rate was made, and
the following scale fixed, so far aa concerned
New York: For a "single" letter, one
shilling; "doable," two shillings; and
"treble," three shillings; a letter of an
ounce weight being carried tor the modest
sum of four shilling*. The postage to New
York remained at the same exhorpitant rate
foryeara. Thn* it happened that when in 1760
a certain American divine aent to a friend at
Lambeth two tract* of his own composition,
the recipient acknowledged them in these
words: "Good, Dr Johnson, I am greatly
obliged for the two tracts, but the postage
on them amounted to thirty-five shillings."
