I( I.s a fact pateni to every observer, however casual he may be, of the present political situation in B. C. tiiat unless some

excellent. Mr. Wawn made a name
ior himself as a performer of high rank

ihe house, as he. himself expressed ii
'brick bo brick.' Mr. J. 8. Bell was at
his best; which is saying a good deal
fur his share of the program. Mr. anal
Mrs Uren are nlwayu popular entertainers. Mrs. Reed rendered 'Annie EituHe'
in her usual good style. Miss McDonald, who han an exceedingly rice ami
well trained contralto voice, was in
splendid form and gave the audience _
genuine treat. Miss Clarke rendered
really invaluable service as accompanist.

was presented most txcellently. At.

Washington, Sept. 8.— In this discourse Dr. Talmage shows the folly
of allowing the forebodings to iiiilu-
ence us and how expectation of evil
weakness ami destroys; text, Matthew vi, 34, "Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof."
Tho life of every man, woman anil
chihl is as closely under the divine
care as though such person were the
only man, woman or child. There
nre no accidents. Au there is a law
of storms in the natural world, so
there is a law of trouble, a law of
disaster, a law of misfortune; but
the majority of troubles of life are
imaginary, and the most of those
anticipated never come. At any
rate, there is no cause of complaint
against God. See how much he has
done to make you happy, his sunshine filling the earth with glory,
making rainbow for the storm and
halo for the mountain, greenness for
the moss, saffron for the cloud and
crystal for tlie billow and procession
of bannered flame through the opening gates of the morning, chaffinches
to sing, rivers to glitter, seas to
chant and springs to blossoms, and
overpowering all other sounds with
its song and overarching all other
splendor with its triumph, covering
up all other beauty with its garlands and outflashing all thrones
with its dominion—deliverance for a
lost world through the Great Redeemer.
1 discourse of the sin of borrowing trouble.
First, such a habit of mind and
heart is wrong, because it puts one
into a despondency that ill tits him
for duty. I planted two rosebushes
in my garden; the one thrived beautifully, the other perished. 1 found
the dead one on the shady side of
the house. Our dispositions, like
our plants, need sunshine. Expectancy of repulse is the cause of many
secular and religious failures. Fear
of bankruptcy lias up torn many a
line business and sent the man dodging among the note shavers. Fear
of slander and abuse has often invited all the long beaked vultures of
scorn and backbiting. Many of tlio
misfortunes of lifo, like hyenas, flee
if you courageously meet them.
How poorly prepared for religious
duty is a man who sits down under
the gloom of expected misfortune!
If he prays, he says, "1 "do not think
I shall bo answered." If he gives,
he says, "I expect, they will steal the
money." Helen Chalmers told me
that her father. Thomas Chalmers,
in the darkest hour of the Iii- ry of
the Free Church of Scotland and
when the woes of the land seemed to
Weigh upon his heart said to, his
children, "Come, let us go out and
play ball or fly kite," and tho only
difficulty in the play was that tho
children could not keep up with their
father. The McCheynes and the
Summerflclds of tho church who did
the most good toiled in the sunlight. Away with the horrors!
They distill poison; they dig graves,
and if they could climb so high they
would drown the rejoicings of heaven
with sobs and   wailing.
You will have nothing but misfortune in the future if yon sedulously
watch for it. How shall a man
catch the right kind of lish if he arranges his lino and hook and bait to
catch lizards and water serpents?
Hunt for bats and hawks, and bats
and hawks you will find. Hunt for
robin redbreasts, and you will And
robin redbreasts. One night an
eagle and an owl got into a fierce
battle. The eagle, unused to the
night, was no match for the owl,
which is most at home in the darkness, and the king of the air fell
helpless. But the morning rose.
and with it rose the eagle, and the
owls and the night hawks and the
bats came a second time to the combat. Now, tlie eaglo in the sunlight, with a stroke of his talons
and a great cry, cleared the air, and
his enemies, with torn feathers and
splashed with blood, tumbled into
the thickets. Ye are the children of
light. in the night of despondency
you will have no chance against
your enemies that (lock up from beneath; but, trusting in Cod and
standing in the sunshine of the
promises, you shall '"renew your
youth  like the eagle."
Again, tho habit of borrowing
trouble is wrong because it has a
tendency to make us overlook present blessing. To slake man's thirst
the rock is cleft, and cool waters
leap into his brimming cup. To feed
his hunger the fields how down with
bonding wheat, and the rattle come
down from the clover pastures to
give him milk, and the orchards yellow anil rlppen, casting their juicy
fruits into his lap. Alas, that
amid such exuberance of blessing
man should growl as though he were
a soldier on half rations or a sailor
on short allowance; that a man
•should stand neck deep in harvests
looking forward to famine; that one
should feel tho strong pulses of
health marching with regular tread
through all thc avenues of life and
yet tremble at the expected assault
of sickness; that a man should sit
in liis pleasant home, fearful that
ruthless want will some day rattle
the broken window* sash with tempest and sweep the coals from thc
hearth and pour hunger into the
bread trny; that a man fed by him
who owns all the harvests should expect to starve; that one whom Cod
loves and surrounds with benediction and attends with angelic escort and hovers i ver with more than
motherly fondness should be looking
for a heritage of tears! Has God
been      hard     with    thee  that     thou
shouldst     he  foreboding?     lias     he

All good trainers and all good
competitors agree on the rule tlmt
abstinence from alcoholic lluids and
beverages is absolutely necessary. I
nm myself an abstainer, because by
being one I am stronger, lighter and
better thnn If I were not, and can
get through much work, mental and
physical, with ease and pleasure. 1
also teach the practice of abstinence unhesitatingly and boldly for
the personal reasons named, and for
many oilier reasons resting on scientific  data.
'' a this does not Influence tne in
what I um now teaching. Athletic4

I felt that alcoholic fluids would, as
drinks, help the athlete under any
circumstances. I would say use
thein exceptionally, just as I might
say in cases of disease. No, what

gained long before 1 was an abstainer. 1 knew tiie value of abstinence during the priod of training
and    the danger of indulgence.     So
long as you are in course of preparation touch not the hurtful thing:
it will be sure to undermine all
the qualities on which vou depend
for success. It will injure your
precision, your decision, your presence of mind and your endurance.
The famous trftiner who taught me
tho four qualities put me up to that.
lie was not well when lie was himself training for a great rare. and
finding him below par in the matter
of circulatory power. I advised him
to indulge in a little alcohol to help
him through. He resented this m
once. It would take away every
chance, as it did in tho case of one
of his opponents. Weston gave the
same testimony. When lie walked
400 miles in live days ho abstained
totally: and when he walked the 5.-
000 miles in 100 days lie abstained
totally: and when he walked his lone,
nnd uninterrupted course from
Brighton to London he assured me
that a single gloss of sherry or u
nip of brandy would reduce his activity. He was not, regularly an
abstainer, When he was at liberty
he enjoyed ns a luxury a glass of
wine or a tumbler of ale. but when
he was in competition it was absolutely necessary for him to refrain
alt ogether.

"I have been often asked why railway engineers disregard their instructions and tlie warning signals along the
i.iie of their road," said the general superintendent of a railroad to a man,
"and I have summed It up that it Is human nature fer men to take chances in
their business and that engineers ure
no exception to the general run.
"Sometimes they cannot give a satisfactory reason why they do so. I will
give yotl an authentic instance of this
habit which made me live 10 years in
30 minutes.
"On a road I was at the time connected with was a lung trestle over a bay
several miles in length, with a drawbridge in the center. Tlie draw had
been opened, and ns a tugboat was
passing through the bridge men beard
the nimble of a fast, heavily laden
passenger train as il struck the bridge
a mile awny. Knowing that (he red
danger signals were set with the opening of the draw, they supposed that the
engineer would slow up or stop, as
might be necessary. Instead, to their
consternation, the train came along at
regular speed, and a frightful accident
appeared Inevitable. They yelled to the
captain of the tugboat to go at full
speed, nml as the boat glided through
the draw In tlie darkness they exerted
themselves lo swing the draw Into the
locking bolts before the train could get
to the point where the rails separated.
"The engineer, however, disregarded
the last danger signal, a few hundred
yards from the draw, and came on. By
a remarkable coincidence of time and
position the draw, which wns of course
fn motion, swung so that the rails of
the east bound track were In juxtaposition witli tho west bound track, upon
which the train was running, and the
heavy engine and one of tlie passenger
coaches, striking tlie east bound rails,
glided upon tbe draw and stuck there,
the remaining portion of the train being on the west bound track, making
almost a figure S of the coaches.
"If the draw bad moved the thirtieth
part of a second faster or slower, the
east bound rails would not bave been
opposite tbe west bound rails at the
very instant that the groat engine
struck them, nnd a frightful disaster
would havo resulted. When I got out
on the bridge a few minutes later, 1
fully expected to find tho train In the
bottom of the bay nnd the draw smashed Into splinters. I discharged the engineer on tlie spot nnd asked blm why
he had not observed the signals. He
admitted that bo saw them, but could
not give a satisfactory reason for falling to observe them. lie evidently took
his chances of finding the draw closed
when he reached it.
"The engineer of today is a sober,
steady, nervy man. especially on the
fast express trains on the big roads. It
is nerve that makes ono man carry a
limited express train through the darkness of the night, fog, sleet and blinding snow nt 00 miles an hour. The stories we read about of an engineer losing bis nerve alter nn accident aro
largely fiction. In 27 years of active
railroad life I have bad but ono or two

for we do not wish In our employ careless men. This is true with all of tlie

fleuiant Story Told of Ills Father, a Mho
of Muny Avocations
The late Senator Allan, says The
Hamilton Times, was a native and
a life-long resident of Toronto, benevolent, industrious and uniformly
courteous. His lifo, and that of his
father, Hon. Willaim Allan, who
died in 1853, cover the term of Ihe
Whole history of Toronto, and,
indeed, of the Province of Upper Canada, or Ontario. The books of biography say tbat Hon. William Allan
"was a pioneer settler who took up
his abode in York during Governor
Sinicoe's term of oflice," that is
some time between 1792 nnd 1700.
He was tho first postmaster and the
first custom collector In York, now
Toronto. In the Canadian nrcly'ves
of 1898 Mr. Douglas Brymner bus
copied a letter, probably written
about the year 1827, designed to express tho popular discontent nt tho
monopolization wf ull the public offices by a few families. The letter,
which was anonymous, wns addressed to Lord Bathurst and dated nt
Montreal in August (no year), and
purported to give the experience of
an Oswego man who visited Toronto
and met lion. William Allan at every
turn. Tho story i.s in these words:
Thc following vary pleasant story
was related to me a few days t go
by an acquaintance on wlio.se veracity 1 placed confidence. A gentleman
crossed to York from Oswego: on
arriving at the little capital he inquired for the custom house as tie
had some goods aboard to enter at
that oflice: he wns shown the place
hard by the qutfy. The collector proved to be a very mild, good-nnt.urod
gentleman as might be; quite a man
of business, too, very conversant
with figures, in short a man very
well known on 'Change, as the saying is, he was Mr. William Allan. On
opening his trunk Mr. Z. found
some of his letters were to be left at
the postoffice of York; he inquired
where it was located nnd in the
postmaster recognized—Mr. William
Allan, lie hnd some bills which lie
wished to discount, had them properly endorsed, posted oil' to '.he
Bank of Upper Canada, was shown
the President of that institution,
and that president was the indefatigable — Mr. William Allan. A day
or two after he was accompanying a
friend, who hnd come to town to
pay some money for a store and
tavern licenses; on arriving at the
oliice of Inspector of Licenses. be
was amazed to find that functionary
also in the person of Mr. William
Allan. A review of the militia took
place while he stayed; he had the
curiosity to go to see it, and recognized in the colonel his (now) old
acquaintance — Mr. William Allan.
A row took place in the hotel whore
he lodged, his evidence wns wanted,
and the acting magistrate was —Mr.
William Allan. Taking tip a paper to
amuse himself, he read the names of
the society for strangers in distress,
the treasurer was — Mr. William
I Allan. Walking witli a friend to tie
hospital, he was iold the names of
the trustees; one of them was — Mr.
William Allan. He happened to over-
hoar a debute about a properly
which hnd been forfuitod by a man
who run away iu tlie time of war:
the names of the commissioners were
mentioned in tlie course of tlie argument, und one of them was — Ur.
William Allan. Another day ho met
a friend from Niagara in doleful
mood, inquired the cause, end was
informed that the commissioners for
war losses had cut elf half bis claim.
Who are the commissioners? asked
he ot Oswego. Tlie reply wns A. it..
(J. 1). and — Mr. William Allan. He
sold some of his goods to a merchant, who gave him an order i n
the treasurer of the district. The
treasurer vvas — .Mr. William Allan.
He had occasion io inquire for a
black chip hat and was directed for
a good one to apply at the store of
—Mr. Willaim Allan". Ilu could hold
no longer, but amazed, astonished
and confounded, exclaimed: Ilow I
pity tbe poor man. this Mr. William
Allan, if lie does the duty of so
many situations his life must surely
bo a burden to himself, nnd if be
docs not how 1 pity a country, the
laws of which allow one man to hold
j such a number of important trusts
at one and  the same  time. I'oh!
said my Uncle Sim, who lives near
President Allan, in the same street.

Government. The Colonel is an Ab-

was the reply, a townsman of thc
Hon. and Rev. Br. Strachan, owner
of tlie palace there, a real Man of
business and worth a plum, in short
he is—he is—Mr. William Allan. (Q.
3.37-1 p.  111.)
This, Mr. Brymner says, is no
doubt a fair sample of the method
of criticising the actions of the lul-
ing party in the Province. The fact
appears to have been that William
Allan was a man of more than ordinary ability, and possessed a good
education, which was an advantage
rather uncommon in those crrly
days. He married a daughter of Dr.
John Gamble, who belonged to a
prominent U. E. Loyalist family, and
had been a surgeon in the Queen's
Hangers. Thus he was qualified to
perform the many varieties of work
which fell to his share.
The son inherited the father's ability and fondness for public life, end
had in addition a large fortune,
which tho growth of tho city md
country had brought to those who
were fortunate in tho selection and
acquirement of lands. It cannot ba
said of Senator G. W. Allan that he
was a grasping man, adding dollar
to dollar and acre to acre. Rather
he appears to have been one who
felt that his wealth and position involved a duty to the country, and
especially to the community in which
he lived. Thus he won and retained
the respect of his contemporaries,
and his name will be held in h.nor
by coming generations.

my mind friends whose son was at
great causai of anxiety and trouble on
account of i.i.i drunken habits. 1
strongly urged the friends to try tho
remedy I saw advertised in the Toronto Globe. They did so. It was
the Samaria Remedy that was ad-

iorm the* company tho medicine was
helpful; the young man has not

From the Review, Windsor,  Ont.
JNlr.  Thomas  Cada,   of Pike  Creek,
a small village in Essex county,   is
known    to    almost everyone In   that
section.     Uo   is a son of Mr.   John
Cada, mill  owner,  and  a  prominent
politician in his locality.      A   representative   of   the   Windsor   Review,
who had known that some time previously llr. Cada was in poor health,
recently  met  him    looking  anything
but an invalid, and naturally asked
what had restored   him    to health.
"Dr. Williams' Fink I'iils," promptly
replied Air. Cada.   When asked if he
would givo the particulars for publication, Mr. Cada said  "certainly, if
you think it worth while;  but there
is nothing very wonderful about my

my  nerves seemed to  be all  shattcr-
ed,  and I was unable to stand hard
work.   Tn    fact,    work  of  any  kind
left me badly used up.   There did not
seem to be any  organic  trouble,    it
was just a case of being run  down
and worn out.   I felt myself   gradually  getting worse,  however,  and I
[began  taking medicine.   I tried   several   advertised   remedies,  but    they
' did  not.   help  me,     indeed  some     of
i them did mo more harm than good.
'.Ilast then I ra'ual of a case much like
j mine cured  by  the  use   of Dr.    Williams'  Fink Fills, and I purchased a
few boxes.   Very soon 1 noticed a do-
I cided   improvement   in  my  condition
: antl   in tlie course  of a few   weeks I
was   feeling my  old-time self.    I  can
'now  eaat heartily,    do  a good  day's
work   with   no   unusual   fatigue,   anal
in  fatet feel     thoroughly renewed    in
health    and   strength.     Naturally I
think    Dr.    Williams'    Pink  Fills    a
great  medicine  for     those 'who     are
weak or ailing."
If you aro feeling   run down    and
I easily tired, you need a tonic to put
[you  right—to make you feel  bright,
active nntl  slrong,   and  the only always  reliable tonic  is Dr.  Williams'
I Fink    Fills  for    Fale People.      Hive
these pills a fair trial and you  will
find  that their curative powers have
not been over-praised.     Sold by    all

Amid a sound of whining viagi
And . j read into a graceful line

The Bunlcse day seemed dark no more.

And echoed round the sljure.

But they were doomed, and all that diy

The dead tnd dying lay.

There Are TlioaHun.l. of Them In the
Inilinn  Ocean,
If you sliottlil want nn island—tlmt Is,
an uninhabited island—for the purposn
of occupying it alone, Robinson Crusoe
like, or to use it for romantic fiction or
for any other purpose, to the exclusion
uf all others in the world, you need have
i:o trouble in finding oue if you see lit
to make a journey to tbe Indian ocean.
In the waters between Madagascar and
India you can find more than 15,000 of
them, where there is not a human lie-
iiiK and where you can, if you will, be
monarch of all you survey.
An English traveler lias recently been
ainout? the small islands that dot tbe
western end of tbe Indian ocean to
make an inventory of tbem and reports that be counted 10,100 and found
only about 000 of them Inhabited.
Now, there Is a good chance for any
one who may want an island.
These particular islands arc not htr.ire,
ns Islands go, but very many of them
are sufilcleut for the purpose of a I.ob-
inson Crusoe or any other novel hero
or for even a small colony of shipwrecked mariners or other persons who
mijllit be cast on one of them or seek |
for the purpose of making a home pretty much out of the busy world.
Some of them are only an acre or
two, well elevated above the tide, while
others are a quarter of a mile in diameter and running from that up to a mile
or two in length atid a quarter or less
of the length In breadth. Many of
them are granitic structures that rise
steeply from '20 to 100 feet, well covered wiib rich soil, through which small
fresh water streams luirry to tbe sea,
which they reach alter flowing over
beaches of glistening calcareous sand
ihat are begirt by coral reel's, which
form walls about tlie islands.

Many  Deaths Largely  Duo  to Ignorance on the Part of Mothers.
Tin' disorders of children seem to

This point of view cm the part of
parents has boon the cause of the
loss of thousands of baby livos.
Yon will always find that the
mothers who are successful in bringing up families of hearty, happy
children with scarecely a day's sickness, aro always (host' who an'cartful in note the slightesl evidence of
illness and to chock the difficulty at
Thoy tlo not belong to the class of
mothers that stupefy their children
with sleeping draughts and similar
medicines  containing opiates.
They stick to tho purely vegetable,
healthful medicines which euro infantile disorders quickly, and of
these Baby s Own Tablets are the
best  of all.
For colic, simple fevers, croup,
constipation, diarrhoea, irritation
when teething, Indigestion and sleeplessness, these tablets nro a quick,
effective, never-failing cure. Dissolved In water the smallest baby
will take (hem without tho slightest
objection, I>o not trifle with medicines concerning which you know
nothing, when here is a time-tried
remedy which is used constantly and
with the best results in thousands ol
Mrs, ii. u. Pox, Orange Ridge,
Man., says ; "I have found Baby's
Own Tablets a perfect medicine for
children of all ages, and would not
be without them In the house. They
are truly a baby comfort and mother's friend." Daby's Own Table's
can be found at drug stores, or will

Another One of IIi» Astonishing Do-
nicNMf Die-cover leu,
Sherlock Holmes, Jr., clutched his coin-
paniun's arm nud in low, distinct tones
"Hist, hist!"
"Why?" the other asked, looking
•round, mystified.
"There," the great amateur detective
replied, pointing at n middle aged man
who was crossing the street just ahead of
them, "is one whose wife went away
last night to rest iu some nice, cool, quiet
place, leaving him to stay at home and
get his own meals."
"Is he some friend of yours?"
"1 never saw him before. This is
merely another of my astuuishing deductions."
""Holmes, you are a constant source of
wonder to me. I can't convince myself
that you are not possessed of occult powers. You must have second sight or
something of that kind. I am getting so
that I almost hate to think when I am
with you, fearing that you will know
what 1 am thinking about."
Sherlock gave his shoulders a slight
shrug and continued in a careless way,
as if it really didn't amouut to much:
"Xo, I am not supernatural. Honestly,
I wouldn't lie to you about a thing of
this kind. It's merely my wonderful -_:ift
of deducing. I ought to have mentioned,
too. that ho gets his meals on a gas stove.
JSow I will tell you how I know all this,
because I see that you want to find out.
Notice, please, that he twists his mustache up at the ends and that he shaves
regularly. A married man who has to
get his own meals right along when his
wife is at home soon lets his heard grow,
partly to save time and partly because he
gets discouraged and doesn't care to keep
on looking handsome. So it is clear that
this man is his own cook ouly temporarily."
MBut how do you know he is his own
cook, that he uses a gas stove and that
his wife went awny last night?"
"Ah, there is where my deduction
comes in. Vou see, you didn't notice
wh^n he passed us that his eyebrows
were singed off. That tells the whole
story. lie turned on thc gas and then
looked for a match. A man always does
that when he starts t<» get his first meal,
but never afterward."
"This is wonderful," said the man who
had heen listening. "Come in and have
a cigar."
While lighting his panatella at the
swinging gas jet the great amateur detective got to thinking of something else
am\ singed off the smith end of his left
eyebrow, after which he went out to
look around and make more deductions.—
