A petition will shortly be circulated
and forwarded to the government asking for the street on the river
hank to be opened up. It is the intention to make a thirty-three foot street,
instead of sixty-six feet, so as to overcome some of the difficulties of people
having houses on the line of Btreet. The
opening up of this street is a good move
and is a thoroughfare that will give access to valuable property, besides cleaning out a few of the dens run by the
Chinese. A move is also being made to
straighten out the affairs of the street
running past Uren's blacksmith shop
nn which in Hurley's house and barn.
Witli the advancement now going on
why does the government not have the
townsite affairs put in shape, so the residents and property holders will know
the true state of affaire.
In another column we publish a communication from Kamloops, "An Appeal." While not agreeing altogether
with the views we publish same in fairness of the opinions on this question
now being so actively discussed by the
general public.
At last a move has been made in (he
matter concerning the cemetery and we
hope the work will continue. While the
question ie now warm it would be advis-
uhle for the committee to start in at
once in the subscriptions and repairs.
A, W. Smith, M. P. P., lias introduced
a bill in the legislature to amend the
Landlord and Tenant Act.
THE   SCHOOL    BILL.
The debate on the School Bill was resumed
liy Mr. Denis Murphy. The bill could not he
considered without also considering the p.ct
amending the Assessment Act. The hill proposed extending the system inaugurated in
1803, in the case of the coast cities, to the
other cities anil towns of the province, anil
this could not be done without a readjustment
of the taxation. This would most affect the
coast cities, and the leader of the opposition
hail piotested that it would increase Vancouver's burden by $3,000 and probably increase
lhat of other cities.
With regard to the revenue tax, the principle could not be wrong anil oppressive, 01
Mr. Martin would have repealed it when he
had the opportunity, lie could not stigmatise
it as the nefarious thing which some newspapers popularly believed lo voice his opinions
declared it to be, without stultifying himself.
lie said it was wrung because it taxed the peo-
pie least able to pay taxes—the laboring
classes. In that he was wrong. The province must hav money for public works, rail
ways and general development: there must be
increased taxation.    But the government did

ot start by imposing this revenue tax. Last
session they imposed a tax on coal and the
inineraljoulputjandduring the recess theyjabol-
ished lhe rebate on lumber, Mr. Robins, of
the New Vancouver Coal Company, begged
lhe goveinmnnt not to impose tlie tax on coal;
it would ruin the industry. Othei industries
protested against being taxed. Mine-owners
and lumbermen declared they could not stand
it. Tlie member for Rossland vehemently
opposed putting a tax on minerals; in fact,
every person whose pocket was affected cried
loudly against being taxed, lie was glad that
the government had had the courage to take
a determined stand. Every tax is opposed, no
matter what class it touches, and the increase
in the revenue lax must meet with opposition,
like those which w'ent before it. [Applause.]
No one would venture to say that the government hail not expended lhe money derived by
those taxations to the best advanthgc, or lhat
they had spent a dollar unnecessarily. It was
absurd for him and hisfcllow-membcrs to come
to the house and ask large appropriations for
their constituencies, and then, when taxation
was proposed, oppose it. The ordinary citizen would blame the supporters of the bill for
assisting the government to impose this new
tax of $2, but in time all would come lo acknowledge its justness. Mr. Martin owned
that tlie tax had some good qualities; it would
reach the Chinese and Japs, lie was informed
by the members from Cariboo that the miners there would be willing to have the old free
millers' tax re-imposed in order lo make the
Chinese and Japanese pay their share of the
taxes. The opposition argument that it
would full on the poor man was unfair. Property owners paid on their real estate and other
property, What would thc oppositon propose? Would they still further tax the industries of the country? The proposed tax was
a just one, and was calculated to reach just
[hat class which could not be reached in any
other way, those persons who, enjoying the
benefits of established institutions, protected
in their life and property, shirk paying their
just share of the expenditure. The schools
benefit the poor perhaps more than the rich,
for the latter can afford to pay for their children's education at private schools and colleges.
Why should nol the poor man contribute to
the general revenue? Was it not better that
men should pay a tax of $5 than be saddled
with an immense bonded indebtedness? [Applause.]
The people of British Columbia were
peculiarly situated. Today a man might
be a laborer; tomorrow, by a stroke of
fortune, a millionaire. No other country
presented Bucb possibilities. Fortunes
were to be made at every turn, and all
had an equal chance, but the development of the country by roads and railways would would increase those
chances, and be felt sure that no one
would object to contribute to such development.   (Applause.)
Wages in British Columbia were high-
et than in any other part of Canada.
The man who paid $1 tax 111 Ontario was
actually paying more than the one who
paid $5 tax here. In Ontario the government paid laborers $1 a day; here they
got $2.50 a day. Give tbeaveruge laborer here the alternative of working in Ontario for $1 a day nnd pay no taxes, or
e.irn $2.i50 here and pav $5 a year taxes,
and how many would accept? (Applause.) Tbe revenue tax was not tbo
terrible thing some people would like to
make it. It is not wrong In principle,
Il reaches the Chinese, it reaches everybody, and no one can claim that it is too
heavy.   (Applause.)
Bourassa  Crushed.
An Ottawa despatch says: In tbe
house by a vote of 144 against 3, for Mr.
Ilourassa's resolution on tbe Sumh African war was defeated. Those who voted
for were: Messrs. Bourassa, Angers and
Monet. The retolution was to tlie effect
that Canada bad the right to participate
in the settlement; that an honorable
peace ahould be effected, and that enlistment of Baden-Powell's Police should
be stopped. Mr. BouraBsa made a long
speech iu support of his motion.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in reply, pointed
ont how inconsistent it was for Mr.
Bourassa to be wanting to participate in
the settlement of the South African
problem, seeing that he rcliisi'il to take
any part in sending a contingent. Sir
Wilfrid made an eloquent speech, showing bow just the war was on the part of
the Briiish and bow the wh le fault of
the outbreak of hosiili'ies wns due to
Mr. Kruger and his insolent ultimatum,
In conclusion the premier said that
either the Dutch or English would have
to rule iu South Africa, and he preferred
English civilization to the 200-year old
methods of the Dutch. Whnt was desir-
ab'e in South ifrioa was confederation
similar to Canada, under tbe British
Hag.
Mr. Borden said that it did not require
the eloqueht speech of the premier lo
persuade him to vote againBt the resolution.

The Bend'Or mill has been running
for the paFt month very satisfactorily,

the mine shows it up as good as ever.
The Bend'Or will run continuously until tbe end of the season.

before Mr. Justice Walkem lust week at
Victoria, the plaintiff abandoned liis
case, after one witness had been examined and judgment was entered for the
defendants, with costs.
In K. T. Ward vs. Bank of B. N. A.
and Cran, a similar case, which has
been going on for two days, judgment reserved.      	
The Pan-American Inhibition.
Toe provincial government bave practically decided to have a mineral exhibit
at the Tironto fair owing to the large
number ot visitors who will be there
from the Pan-American exhibition at
Buffalo. Mr. Smith Curtis is urging
that there be an exhibition at the latter
fair also, as a recent visit by him to New
York convinced him that capital in the
near future will come from there for
British Columbia mines rather than
from England. It is also urged that a
newspaper man, because of biB tamiliar-
ity wiih the best methods ot advertising
and using tbe press, be advisable in the
appointment of a commissioner. If the
appointment is made it is believed that
Mr. C. II. Gibbons of the Province will
likely be the choice.
Denis is All  Right.
Mr. Denis Murphy's speech on the
school bill has evoked many high encomiums. Tbe member for West Yale bas a
pretty trick of oratory, as one might ex.
pect from liis name. When Dame Fortune was distributing her favors, she
evidently upset Der basket of eloquence
over the Einercld Isle, and sometimes
we think that she thought tbat was
enough for one place, and carried her
store of happiness elsewhere. But, be
this as it may, Mr. Murphy, in his
speech referred, to showed that be possesses more than the faculty of saying
things well. It disclosed him ns one
who thins; out a difficult subject and
handle it convincingly. He possesses
also the inestimable quality of youth
and if lie has not a career before him,
we shall be much mistaken. He is spec-
tally fortunate in being wise enough not
to apeak when he has nothing to say.—

A New Province for Canada.
Tbe Calgary Albertan has the following despatch from Ottawa: " It is stated here authoritatively that as soon as
the census returns a:e all in from the
territories steps will bo taken to divide
the present Noith vest Territories. Tlie
proposal is to incorporate all east of the
third meridian with Manitoba and constitute a new province of the weBtern
portion under the name of Alberta. The
capital of the new province will be Calgary."	
Here is the latest conundrum—"Why
does Kruger wear thick boots." Tlie
answer we are told, is obvious—"To
keep du Wei from defeat."
AN   APPEAL.
To the Working Men OF B. C:
A bill is now before the Provincial Legislature asking for the increase of the present
$3.00 revenue tax to $5.00. This falls as a
direct tax upon lalior, and should not be tolerated for an instant by the workingmen of this
province. Wc have already suffered long,
and submitted paitently to the many indignities thrust upon us by bungling Legislators
in the past, and now patience has ceased to be
a virtue. We have been deprived of just
representations in the legislature; this same revenue tax has very often been taken from us by
stealth, by drawing our wages to the amount
without our consent or knowledge. And
worst of all, while our heads have been bent
in toil, the public domain has been stolen
from us in large quantities by charter mongers
and company promoters, thieves, in collusion
with the men to whom we foolishly trusted to
guard our interests. Let us rise in our might
and put a stop to this sort of thing at once and
for ever. We can do it this way: If this
bill is defeated in the house well and good.
Don't forget the members who opposed it;
they will be deserving of the support of the
people at the next election. If the bill is carried, as it is likely 10 do, then this appeal is a
call to action. A copy is being sent to every
constituency in thc province lhat it is possible
to speedily reach, and you are urged to call
public meetings in each riding, pass resolutions
condemning the act, and ask for its repeal.
Many of the members will have voted
against it, and Ihey would have their hands
strengthened by such resolutions. To those
who voted for it, we can only say, " It's time
you found out lhat you arc our servant, and
that if we say so, you must repeal this act or
lie dismissed, just the same as any servant
who refuses to do his master's request. We
claim it is better for a few to swallow their
pride than for the whole province to be bound
in the bonds of iniquity. There are a few
good men in every constituency whom this appeal will call to arms, like a bugle to the
battle field. Do not wait; but go ahead, and
call a public meeting in the most populous
centre: get a few live speakers from among
yourselves, and present the question fairly to
the people and have resolutions passed condemning the act, and call upon the members
for that district to urge and vote for the repeal
of the act. If it is possible, and in accordance with public sentiment, pass an addbiona!
resolution asking him or them to advocate a
tax of three or live per cent, per annum upon
thc present selling values of the land, including mineral, with periodic valuations. This is
a just method of raising public revenue, and
has made New Zealand the most prosperous
country in all the earth. Fellow workmen!
brothers! arise! Do not let this thing pass
unnoticed, or we will be still further oppressed
oppressed by our self-imposed taskmaster. It
is in our power to repeal this unjust measure.
Strike! While the iron is hot. Strike! for
our homes and little ones, and—liberty.

_*x-F»resl_ent Harrison Dead.
Indianapolis, March 13.—Gen. Benjamin
Harrison died at 4:45 this afternoon without
regaining conciousness. His death was quiet
and painless, there being a gradual sinking
tin till the end came, which was marked by a
single gasp for breath, as life departed from
the great statesman. The relatives, with few
exceptions, and several of his old and tried
friends, were at the former president's bedside
when be passed away.
Benjamin Harrison, tbe twenty-third president of the United States and grandson of the
ninth president, was born at North Bend,
Ohio, August 20, 1833, He graduated from
Miami university, Ohio, in 1852, and after
studying law, began practice at Indianapolis
in 1854. In 1862 he entered the United
States army in the civil war and assisted in
raising the 70th Indiana regiment of which he
was made colonel. In 1S64 ho was placed in
command of a brigade and made the campaign with Gen. Hooper's corps from Chattanooga to Atlanta. For ability and galantry
he was given 'he rank of brevet brigadier general of volunteers in 1S65.
It is announced that the landing of Strathcona Horse, fully equipped, in South Africa,

Professor Vang of the University of
C.uef, Switzerland, entertains groat
fears concerning the future of our
lower Limbs. This sage is of tlie opinion thut within the next thousand
years human beings will have forgotten how to use their legs, and that
these limbs, If evolution will not do
awny with them, will serve as mere
ornaments to the rest of the body.
Professor Yung states that at the
present age human beings show a de-
elded aversion to personal or physical
locomotion, and this is more mauifest
every time a new automatic traveling
. Instrument Is invented and rendered
practical. Steam, electricity, cable
power and the different velocipede machines all bear an Influence over us
and create n dislike for walking, and
the future generations will likely have
the convenience of steerable airships
at their wludows aud electric automobiles at their doors, aud these conveyances will be so cheap that almost
every oue can own them, and this
means the doom of our legs.
The latter will be regarded as super-
lltious appendages, no use will be made
of them, and who knows but that they
may disappear altogether? But so
much more will our arms develop in
length and strength. These are the
cruel laws of evolution, nud It will be
due to their pmuks that future generations will again resemble the apes.
There will come another epoch of short
legs and long arms.
Compiled Wltb the Law.
"A certain well known Mobile lawyer, who was lame and bad something
of n reputation us n lighter," said a
southern geutlemau, "was ut one time
attorney 111 a suit Hint caused much 111
feeling. He won the suit for his clieut.
and lhe loser vowed vengeance. 'In
pursuance of thnt same,' lu the language of Truthful James, he oue day
went Into the lawyer's otHce and subjected lilm to- a tirade of abuse that
would have caused a salt water captain to die from pure envy, such was
ids talent in vituperation.
"The lawyer answered him nothing,
to the surprise of two or three men
who were present, but, getting out of
his chair, began to hobble backward.
Ills enemy, thiuking ho was retreating,
followed lilm up, with more abuse aud
threatening  gestures.
"The lawyer's foot finally struck
against the wall, when be suddenly
straightened up and saying, '(ieutle-
men, I call on you to witness that, on
account of tills wall, I have retreated
as far as possible' (the general law of
nomicidc), drew out a derringer and
shot his opponent

witnesses being the men present at the
time of the killing, who testified to the
lawyer's having retreated ns far as
possible."

In his prime the late Mr. John Cook,
the great tourist agent, wns a man of

alarming symptoms, he made a discovery that may be worth giving to
lhe public, lie found that the threatened trouble, something spinal, disappeared when lie no longer sat with
Ids hack to the engine, ne always
thereafter faced It, and that the principle Is sound will be borne out by
others whom lie advised to do the
saute. All who are called upon to do
much railway traveling will lie wise to

A  Synopsis of  This  Imj ortant Law
Now In For.e.
We publish below a complete synopsis of tlie Manitoba Elevator bill,
giving all the salient points und
provisions  of  the same:
Sections 1 to 13 are of an interpretation character, citing the tale
of ihe act and limiting its operations to the inspection district of
Man it oba, providing for the appointment ami defining the duties uf
tlie warehouse commissioner, whose
heuh office is located at Winnipeg,
and weighmaster, and fixing fees for
weighing grain. The fees are, for
each carload, 25 cents, and each cargo,   per   1,000   bushels,   30  cents.
Sections 11 lo 28 deal with terminal elevators and warehouses, the
managers of Which must procure a
license from the commissioner. Provision is made that, such terminal elevators shall receive for storage any
grain, dry and in a suit able condition for warehousing, that is tendered in the usual maimer in which
elevators are accustomed to receive
grain in the ordinary and usual
course of business, not making any
discriminat Ion between persons desiring to avail themselves of warehouse facilities-such grain to be in
all cases inspected and graded by a
duly authorized inspector, and to be
sLored wiih grain of a similar
grade. In no case shall grain of a
different grades be mixed together
while  in store.
Sections 2V> to 42 are of more general interest to the public, as relating to country elevators, flat warehouses and loading platforms. All
elevators and warehouses are declared to be public, and must secure an
annual license, as also being subject
to the government and control of
the rules and regulations promulgated by the governor-in-counwl.
Section 34 states lhat "the person
operating such country elevator or
warehouse shall keep a true and correct account in writ ing, in proper
books, of all grain received, stored
and shipped at such elevator or
warehouse, stating the weight,
grade and dockage for dirt or other
cause of each lot of grain received in
store for sale, storage or chip-
ment, except as hereinafter provided, and shall, upon the request of
any person delivering grain for storage or shipment, receive such grain,
w thout discrimination us to persons, during reasonable and proper
business hours, and shall insure it
against loss by lire while in his elevator or warehouse, and shall, upon
request, deliver to such person a
warehouse receipt or receipts therefor, dateil the day the grain was received and specifying upon its face
the gross and net weight of such
grain, the dockage for dirt or oiher
cause, and the grade of such gra in
when graded conformably to the
grade fixed by law and in force at
terminal points; and every such receipt shall stat*' upon its face that
the grain mentioned in such receipt
has been received into store and that
upon the return of such receipt, and
upon payment or tender of payment
of all lawful charges for receiving,

A CURIOUS CLIENT.
Ah Unexpected Verrtlet on a, Picture
Tainted by Col.
While the late David Col, the great
Antwerp painter, was at work in Ids studio one day many years ago there enter
ed a farmer who requested him to palut
his father's portrait. The artist, not being overburdened with wealth at that
time, gladly agreed to do the work and
Hiiid that he would he pleased to sec the
old gentleman at any time. Thereupon
the farmer Baid mournfully:
"Oh, you can't see him, sir, for he's
dead."
"Then how on eavth do you expect me
to paint his portrait?" asked the artist,
with a nigh.
"Oh, you're fooling me, sir!" fiiild the
farmer. "Just tell ino whose picture that
)s on the easel there."
"Thot Is a portrait of St. Anthony,"
was the answer.
"Is that really St, Anthony?"
"Yes,"
"Did he sit to you?"
"Of course not."
"Well, then, isn't that a clear proof
that you are able to make the portrait of
a dead man?"
Col, who wanted money badly, allowed
himself to be persuaded by this novel
argument, nnd, therefore, he obtained
from the farmer as many particulars
about tbe dead man as he cuuld, and
then, after making a sketch of the boh,
because he said that he closely resembled
his father, be began work on the portrait.
When it was finished, he sent for the
farmer and showed it to him. To his
Burprise, the man fell ou his knees und
bugnn to cry bitterly, his eyes meanwhile
fixed on the portrait. Col flattered him
self that he had made a lifelike portrait
and that it was the wonderful rescin
bluuce which caused the son to grieve
■o sorely.
"Why do you cry so much?" he asked
trying to comfort lilm.
"Oh, my dear sir," was the unexpected
reply. "I never thought that any one
Could change so much In such a shorl
time! Dear me, how terribly ugly my
poor father has becomeI"
A THRILLING RESCUE
OUT OF THE VERY JAWS OF DEATH
WAS HE SNATCHED.
An Old Whaleman'! Exciting Star*?
of n Race Fop Life Thnt Mnde Ills
Utttr Torn Gray end C'uused Him tu
Quit tbe Business,
"It was in 1875," said the old sea captain, "and I was au able seaman on the
whaler ltivenoak looking for blubber in
the south Atlantic, with a seat in the
second mate's whuleboat. We had had
the boats ready to lower and the mastheads manned for over three weeks before we sighted grease, and when the
cry, 'There she blows!' rang out from
the fore skysnil yard tht' old mnn went
wild with delight. 'Sperm whale sure!'
he bawled. 'Down from aloft, every
one! Stand by to lower 1' We got the
bouts off iu good shape, and our boat took
the lead, which we held till we camp up
with the whale. The boat header let go
his harpoon, sending it out of sight into
the side of the monster, which started off
at a rate of speed that made the boat
hum through the water. She kept this
up for 20 minutes, and we soon lost sight
of the Rlvenoak and the other boats.
And then, as though tiring of pulling UK
along, she suddenly showed Unices and
began to make for the bottom like a
load of pig lead. The rope, one end of
which was attached to tlie harpoon in
the whale's back, ran out of the boat ho
fust that it looked like a thread of blue
BtnoliQ.
' 'Cut that rope if It fouls,' cried the
mate, tossing me a hatchet, 'and lose no
time  about  it!    If you  don't,  Cod  help
! The beast is going to sound 100
fathoms, sure!'
1 had just leaned forward to pick up
the implement when there was a -sudden jerk, a crashing, whirring sound, and
I knew that the rope had fouled. The
next ml mi to 1 felt myself drawn down
through the ocean like a shot from a gun
1 entlght a brief glimpse of the longboat
Hashing through the water, a number ol
btniggling forms, and then 1 began tu
come up. It seemed ages before 1 reach
ed lhe surface and those blue skies never
seemed so welcome before. Only one of
Uiy comrades succeeded in getting uut of
the bout, and he was flouting about on a
long plank which had been stored In the
bottom of the boat for just such a purpose. I swam up and caught hold of the
other end of it. Luckily the wnter wa
calm and the plank kept our heads well
out of water. Not a sign of oil ship oi
small hunts did we see, however, and the
thought came over me that we might just
ns well have been pulled to the bottom by
the whale as to die by indies. The hours
wore on. however, and we began to grow
weak and it got to he a question of how
liuch longer we could hold out.
"Just ns we were about to despair n'
■ver being rescued, my companion. Hi!
Royce, gave n shout of joy aud poluteil

Royce, tlint we were very lucky, nnd re
ci iving no reply 1 turned to look ut him.
"1 have never seen such a look in n
man's face before nor since. It was n-
white as a sheet, his eyes seemed t'e
bulge out of his head anil his teeth nil

my look aud in reply pointed off in tin
direction opposite to that from which tin

whispered. "They have been attracted b)

"I saw but one shark. Tie was quite ;:

leisurely way. The men on the warship
saw it too and realized our danger. A
single dull boom was heard, and a sold
shot struck ahout HO feet to one side of
the man eater, which paid no attention
to the compliment hut continued to make
for us with a slightly increased speed.
Behind him, about 30 feet in the rear,
was another shark. Roth were quite
near now.   So was the warship.
"Wo could hear the crew manning the
davits and fails; we could hear the
splash as the small boat took to the water. Again the gun boomed from the
warship, hut this lime the shot went
clear over the sharks and struck the water a quarter of a mile beyond. Nearer
aud nearer eame the first shark, uud we
now saw that the small boat could, not
reach us in time.
"The beast made straight for Royce.
who screamed with terror. Over on his
buck turned the shark, with his cavern
Otis mouth open and his long, cruel teeth
reeking with froth. The boat was sill
20 yards off. Itoyce in sheer terror lit
go  iiis hold ou  tlie  plank  and  tried   to
swim for it. The next instant the shark
was upon him. I closed my eyes, heard
a shriek from Royce. and when I looked
the wiiter was stained with blood, but
Royce wns gone. It was my turn now.
The second shark was nlmost upou me,
ami I caught a glimpse uf his little swinish eyes as he turned over on his back.
The yards of the warship were thronged,
and nothing could he heard but the splash
of the approaching boat. 1 was paralyzed. I could not have left the plank to
save my sou!. Nearer came the shark,
and again I shut my eyes. I could even
hear the snuffling of the beast, aud then
came the clear, coo! command: 'Steady,
men! Aim! Fire!' A volley of musketry awoke the stillness, and then I lost
consciousness. When I came to, 1 was
on  the deck  of the  United  States ship
 .    The jackies in  the rowboat  had
shot the shark when it was within three
feet of me.

It was a friend of Uuskin's mother,
Mrs. John Simon, who told tho story.
She was traveling by night in the early
days of the Great Western railway from
Plymouth to London:
"When I had taken off my cloak and
smoothed my plumes and generally settled myself, I looked up to see the most
wonderful eyes I ever saw steadily, luminously, clairvoyant ly, kindly, paternally
looking at me. The hat was over the
forehead, the mouth aud chin buried in
the brown velvet coat collar of the brown
greatcoat. Well, we went or., and the
storm went on more nnd more, until we

My old gentleman rubbed the side window witli liis coat cuff in vain, attacked
the center window, again in vain, so blurred and blotted was it with the torrents
of rain. A moment's hesitation and
then:
" 'Young lady, would yon mind my putting down this window?'
" 'Oh, no, not nt all.'

out go the old gentleman's head and
shoulders, and there they stay for 1 suppose nearly nine minutes; then he drew
them in, and I snid:
" 'Oh. please let me look.'
" 'Now, you will he drenched.' Rut he
half opened the window for mo to see.
Such a sight, such ii chaos of elemental
and artificial lights and noises. I never

TOOMBS AND STEPHENS.
A Friendship Thnt Wns of Grent Die
i'i tlie Former.
Dr. F. H. Orine told me several good
stories about our old time statesmen.
Among oilier anecdotes nnd incidents the
doctor gave me some piquant rciuinis-
ceuci'H of Toombs and Stephens.
Toombs always tried to impress people
with the belief that bis genius made him
equal to nny emergency, Even when
lie studied hard ur availed himself of the
labor of others be eucouraged the iden
I lint his nupst splendid efforts were Ibi
result of the Inspiration nt' tba moment,
entirely offhand, without tiny special prep
ai'ulhui for the occasion,
Once, when a very important debati
was going 011 in the t'ederul congress
T. tiuilis made a magnificent speech wliicli
attracted everybody's attention.
It was nut ouly an eloquent speech, but
it was remarkable fur its masterly array
of fuels nud figures and its convincing arguments.
"Yuii must have devoted considerable
time to its preparation." said one uf the
statesmen's admirers.
"Well, I gave nbout two hours to it,"
Tnonilis replied, with u careless. Indifferent air.
Somebody repented this to Stephens in
the presence of several congressmen.
"Two hours!" he exclaimed, somewhat
irritably. ''Prepared that speech in two
hours, did lie? 1 spent two weeks on it
Thai's all I cure to say."
Stephens had patiently nnil laboriously
c.illeeteil   the st ill isl ies,  nnd  Toombs  hnd
merely ailiied the flourishes.
Tbe two great Georgians uttended n nn
tioual Democratic convention shortly before the wnr, it ml Stephens was confined
to bis bed just when be could leilst afford
tn be laid   up.
After an important caucus Toombs vis-
bcil bis friend and snt down by bis bedside,
"Aleck," lie said, "it was proposed to
nominate you fur vice president, but I
told tIn-ill thnt you did not want the office
and would decline tlie nomination, so
they look the other man."

A PAINTER'S VISION.
The Story of One of Mnnkneiy's Fa-
moan  PlliiilliiHS.
Many an Incident in the career of
Michael Schroeder—created Baron Mun-
kaczy in the Hungarian nobility—was
a pitiless Illustration of the truth of
Dryden's line that great wits are sure to
1.1 i'lness near allied ami thin partitions
murk tlie bounds of separation.
His marvelous and fantastical career
both as man and ns artist was marked
by a hundred episodes that might have
been construed us evidence of an unbalanced mind, but it was nut until his reason became hopelessly clouded that the
World realized in how tremulous a balance bad hung the intellect which hail
given it three pictures which won for
tbeir painter fame, riches, decorations,
titles and n devoted regard such as is
bestowed upon very few men in any walk
of life.
His weird methods of conceiving und
working out his pictures never had a
more startling illustration than i.i the
case of bis must famous canvas, "Christ
Before Pilate." This picture, which Is 20
feet long nnd 12 feet high, contains more
than 40 figures. All the figures save one
were sketched In with u rapidity almost
maniacal between dtiwn anil twilight of
one day. 'The one space remaining empty
wns that reserved fur the figure nf .lesus,
nnd it remained so ninny dnys while
Mnnkaczy worked on the other figures,
he approached the oasis of white canvas left untouched by his blazing colors
the artistic and devotional fervor grew
upon him, and he shut himself nway
from the sight of man tlint lie might iu
perfect solitude and silence realize his
conception of the linn of Sorrows.
When the picture was finished and had
brought him worldwide funic, be always
insisted that while lie was sitting nlnno
and lust in a profound reverie n white
vision flouted before liis eyes and passed
into the iinpninted space on the canvas.
The painter, shaking with excitement,
sprang forward and with trembling hands
painted in tlie figure which hnd come to
him like the phantasmagoria uf a dream.
However lhe inspiration for that dead
white figure, sot iimid resplendent ci'iin-
suns and purples, came to him, wc all
know what its effect upon the world was
It is estimated that 2.000,000 people saw
it In the course of Its triumphant tour
among nations. Courts, emliassles, clergy, pagans, .lews. Mnbnmtnednns, Christians, the very humble and the very
great, crowded to see it. Some were
moved to tears; others sank unou their
knees and prayed.
The Tnllp CraBt*.
About the middle of the seventeenth
century the tulip boeauio known In
Germany, nud a scientist named 'Ua
ner gives tbe first description of this
flower. First only the yellow variety
was known, and then other colors were
produced b.v crossing. The Dutch, particularly tbe citizens of Haarlem, produced the most wonderful varieties of
this flower and obtained enormous
prices for tbum.
Ill 1(134 the trade lu tulips assumed a
peculiar turn. It degenerated into a
sort of a game of chance, so thnt in
KI7.3 the authorities Mt called upon to
Interfere and to Issue edicts against
extravagance In tulips, as thoy formerly bad against trains and laces. This
Interference would seem to bo justified
if one reads thnt in 1G00 n single flower
of this sort, called the Vlccori. wns
paid for with two cargoes of whnt,
four cargoes of rye, four fat oxen,
eight fat hogs, 12 fat sheep, two c,nsks
of wine, four barrels of beer, two tons
of butter, 1.000 pounds of cheese, a
complete bed, a suit of clothing aud a
silver tankard.
Another bulb, the Romper Augustus,
was paid for with 4,(100 gold guilders
and a coach with a double Until of
horses. In Haarlem the tulip craze
reached Its height In the decade from
1030 to 1040. when a price of 12.000
gold guilders (about $!).0OO American
money) Is recorded for a single bulb.

coululus the mortal renin.ns of oue of
tho old Crusaders. In molderlng effigy he Is depleted on the tomb, while
by bis side in cold eloquence Is Imaged
the form of his wife. It will be noticed
by even tbe casual observer tbat the
female Image Is bereft of one of tbe
hands, and the story runs that the
Crusader, while lighting lu the east,
was made a prisoner of war antl
brought before Snlodin, who, before
executing jiidgmer.i upon him, asked
hliu If there was any reason why be
should not be put *o death. To this
the knight replied that be was but
young, and would leave a newly wedded
wife, who would bitterly mourn bis
loss.
"Tbe love of woman Is as a fleeting
breath." retorted the sultan. "Your
Wife will forget tbat you have ever
lived; she will love again nnd marry
another." To this the sad knight
could only reply that on ber fidelity
he could rest bis soul. "Well, then,"
replied Saladln, "1 will promise ou iny

ii CHEAT REPUTATION
HAS   BEEN  ACHIEVED  BY  DE.
WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS.
Not only In Canada, But In Every Civilized
Country Throughout lhe World—M.rlt
Alone hns Glvt n This Sle.llc-ine Its
Great Prominence Over Competitors
Everywhere.
The reputation achieved by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills not only in
Canada, but throughout the world,
rests upon a very solid basis, which
may be summed up in two words—
sterling merit. The Enterprise has
had occasion to investigate a number of cures effected by this medicine, and knows that in some instances at least these cures wero
wrought after other medicines had
failed even to give relief. Recently another cure enme under our notice that cannot fail to Increase tbe
popularity of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills iu tltc locality in which it occurred, and as we can vouch for tho
facts, it may well bring hope te
sufferers elsewhere.
Mr. Walter If. Johnson is one of
the best known residents of lite
northern section of Queen's county.
He resides in tho town of Caledonia,
where be keeps an hotel, and also
runs a stage that carries passengers
and mail between tbat town and
Liverpool, a distance ot some thirty
miles. Mr. Johnson was in Bridge-
water recently, on which occasion lie
gave a reporter of this paper thu
following facts: About three years
ago he was taken very ill. He bad
tho best of medical attendance, but
made very little progress towards recovery, and the doctor told him
there was very little hope that he
would be able to return to his former work. Tbe trouble appeared to
have located itself in liis kidneys,
and for eight weeks or more ho was
confined to bed. Ho suffered greatly
from constant pains in the back, his
appetite became impaired and bis
constitution generally appeared to bo
shattered. At this juncture he derided to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and got a half dozen boxus. In the
course of a couplo of weeks he noticed an improvement in his condition and he continued the use of the
pills until ho had taken some ten or
twelve boxes, when he not only felt
that his cure was complete, but also
felt that in all respects bis health
was better than it bad been for
.vein's. Since that time he has been
continually driving his coach between Caledonia and Liverpool, and
has not bad the slightest return of
tlio trouble, nol withstanding that
he has to face at times very inclement weather, that might well bring
on a return of the trouble bad not
his system been so strongly fort ilied
against it through the use of Dr.
Williams'  Pink Pills.
If the blond i.s pure and wholesome disease cannot exist. Tlie reason why Dr. Williams' rink Pills
cure so many forms of disease is
that they act directly upon the blood
and nerves, thus re-aching the root, of
the trouble. Other medicines act
only upon the symptoms of the
trouble, and tbat is the reason
the trouble always returns when you
cease these medicines. Dr. Williams
Pink Pills make permanent cure-s in
kidney troubles, rheumatism, erysipelas, anaemia and kindred diseases.
Dut be sure you get the genuine
which bear the full name Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Teoplo on

We heard a story the other day that
will bear repeating. The gentleman
who told it had just returned from a
visit to Kansas City, Mo., and the tale
is as follows: " I had heen up town to
the theatre and took the Twelfth street
car to the hotel at which I w&e staying.
The car was full of passengers, one of
thein a big fat nego woman wilh a child
in her arms which was crying and she
win trying to console il, hut it wouldn't
console. " Stop dat cryin' chile! doan
you see yo' mammy getting out yo' supper? With this remark she offered the
breust to the child, but it wouldn't take
it. Coaxint'ly she said; "Hush yo'
sqnalin,' yo' little black rascal, an' take
yo'supper, if yo' don't I's a-gwine ter
give it ta de coudui-tnh." Tlie roar that
went up in the car was deafening. The
conductor got off at the next Btop.
An Eaiy Winner.
A minister was one uay walking along
a road, and to his astonishment he saw
a crowd of boys Bitting in front of a ring
with a Email dog in the center. When
lie came up to them he put the following
question: " What are you doing to the
dog?" One little boy said, "Whoever
tells the biggest lie winB it." "Oh,"
said the minister, " I'm surprised at vou
little boys, for when I was like you 1
never told lies." There was silence for a
while, until one of the boys shouted
" Hand him up the dog."
