I.-W W.BlmlnBtcr,
Somk time ago, in 0UI cor-
rpspondance, reference was made
to the excellence of the nursery,
stuck put out by the 11. C. Nursory
ot Vancouver. Later Mr. Brand-
rith, nf that city, published a letter in this paper discrediting the
very existence of the It. C. Nursery. Since then othor information has been received attbis olllce,
showing conclusively that the It.
0, Nursery exists only on paper,
it follows that tho agents who sell
stock representing it to be grown
by tbe ll. C, Nursery are doing
business on false pretences, and
ranchers should beware of tlicni.
The trees may be good enough, or
they may not be. They have so
far boon purchased partly from II.
C, nurseries and partly in Oregon.
Parties who deal in trees morcly
as merchandise naturally drive
close bargains with the nurseries,
and as the nurseries are not responsible to tho ranchers either
for tho quality of trees or mis-
representation of agents, and as
thoy are obliged to out prices very
low, it follows that they do not
supply thoir beBt stock to transient
dealers. Our home nurseries arc
well deserving of support, and the
stock from them is most likely to
suit tho local conditions. Hy inlying from them direct, tlie ranchers
are dealing with responsible men,
who aro in the business to slay,
and who have to make and keep a
reputation for straight dealing,
The Oddfellows' Concert.
By our Spoclal llonnrlur.
The concert in aid of the fond
of the Cloverdale Oddfellows, 'and
held in their hall, Friday evening
last, proved a 'most brilliant success. Tlie large hall was more
than comfortably seated, and the
platform supplied standing room
for late comers.' The presence of
the many strangers spoke well for
thp enterprise of the ladies of' Surrey who had it in hand, and who
worked so indefatjgably to insure
success. Nothing'was lacking that
could have added tp the enjoyment 0/ the evening. The' stage
was tastefully arranged arid had
(piite a drawing room effect. The
curtain was rolled up shortly after
pight,
Dr. .Sutherland ably acted as
chairman. On behalf of the' Oddfellows, ho thanked all those who
bad so kindly lent thoir assistance
to make the programme the interesting pup he felt sijre it would
bp. Ho would not make 11 lengthy
speech 11s 11 desire had been expressed to go through wjth the
programme as quickly as possible,
to makp room for the dance which

timp heartiness and responded to
thp pneorp with two versps of "Ye
Bunks nnd Braes."
A Stump Spepch was given by

after which the second iiart of the
programme was proceeded with.
Sung—"Kiss and let us make
Up," by tho Misses MeCiillum, wus
sweetly rendered und well received.
A recitation by Mr. Drinkwater

Langley Township.
Cortoanondeace suhbey Timrb.
The Municipal Council met in
Kiddcll" and Davidjjon.'s Hall at
Murray's Corners, Langley Prairie,
on Saturday, the 1st' instant, und
hnd under. j.-onsidcratjon the letting
of a large number M contracts fijr
various worses throughout the township. ' A large amount of labor tpis
been' afrangod for, which ivlien
finished will leave the thorgugh-
fare(j mu.ch improved, and add
mui,lj \t) the convenience 0/ the
traffic. The statptp labor has commenced, nnd the weather being
favorable is likely to be got through
during the' allotpd time. In this
connpctjpn it may be well to call
attention to the importance of arranging for the systematic gravelling of the thoroughfares, or a
portjpn ,0/ them, nnnunlly, so a{j by
degrpps to make the roadways h^rd
and permanent. If a few milps
were done well eacl) year beginning
with the trunk road, in a short
timp a large part of fhe rates now
sppnt yeup by year in necessity
repairs oq fhe softer portions of the
highways, .yoiild becomp available
for further improvements, nnd
perhaps al)o% pf a reduction in the
rate of taxatinp. For it js clear
that unti( the roads are built nf a
more permanent character t|||(ii at
present, the municipal lponies
must be spent ovpr and ovpr again,
from year to ypar, to maintain
them in even moderate condition.
The expenditure on tho roads sjnee
the incorporation of the municipality, it js allowed has bpen suf-
ficpnt to have formed fyrst class
roads in most eases, throughout
thp district, and jt is for thp interest of thp ratepayers that 11
systematic plan for the milking of
the roads and bridges on 11 more
permanent basis should be devised
as soon as possible, and actpd upon
continuously from year to ypar by
successive councils, and thus beni-
fil the ratepayers and promote the
prosperity of the district, as  bud
ropds binder settlement.

T|nchead, which is nn abbreviation of tbe bending tn this sketch,

This beautiful district butts up
against thp Fraser and reaches

is nf every variety, from gravel and
sand to heavy black loam, nnd except the rich bottom lauds of the
Scrpontino, the whole of it is splendidly adapted for fruit culture.
Tho sottlors ore well satisfied
with their ranches, und are displaying commendable enterprise ami

A littic west of the Const Mcridinn
is the charming location of our old

Just north of the school bouse,
on an elevation commanding it
wide view, i,s the handsome resi:
dencpof Mr. 1). M. Robertson. This
is one of tbe finest buildings in
Surrey, and is finished from top to
bottom in thorough city style. The
rooms are heated' by radiators, and
arc supplied with hot pnd cold
water. On the ground floor arc
the living rpomB, each commanding
special views of beautiful landscape.
Back of these are scullery, bathroom, etc., fitted with all modern
conveniences, while below is a
noble basement, used for cold storage and work shop but easily transformed |nto a brilliant and commodious ball-room, as has already
occurred on more than one occasion, for Mr. and Mr*. Robertson
keep hospitable house and delight
in entertaining their guests. The
house is surrounded by forty acres
of clearing, and )iere during the
past throe years a start has been
made |ri founding a nursery that
beforo many years may reach large
proportions. As yet but a small
area has been worked into nursery
row, but the plants look vigorous
and healthy and everything is kept
clean and thoroughly worked. Besides small fruit, there are about
K,O0O standard trees which will be
ready for delivery next fall, while
over 100,000 applp and pear stocks
show up l|kp hedge rows, to be used
later for grafting purposes. Mr.
Robertson is an experienced nur-
scrymun, having spent twpnty-tive

George Francis Train's fmuous attempts   to introduce   tramways   iu  thu
British towns iu l sstio <Utl not neglect
Birmingham, says Dr, Albert Shaw hi
his "Municipal (lovernmont In Great
Britain." Mr. Train was grau tod an ox-
periniental oonoossiou, whioh ho fulled
to utilizes aud in I sc 1 thu corporation
itself ohtuiuod pnrliumontury authority
to build tramways, ltut nothing was
dono until after thu general tramways
nut of into wus pnssod.
At length, iii lH~!i, thu council laid
the first lltlO at u  cost uf  #7."i,nnu innl
leased it for sovon years toon operating
company. From time to time othor lines
havu I until built und leased, but tlio corporation'* limits inuludttd only n,-,ho
acres until Nov. u, 1801( when thoy
wero hioreosod to 13,866 oores by tho
annexation of suburbs then containing
Homo .00,001) people. Thus whon thu
corporation's street railway system was
under construction tho avoruga distance
from tho con tor to tho circumfor-
oueo of Birmingham was only two miles,
anil i'j miles of tram linos uro tho total
extent of tho municipal ownership. Out-
sido of tho city's jurisdiction tho oporat-
ing companies hnvo extended the lines
by a still greuter mileage. In the future
undoubtedly thoso extensions will be acquired by tho Birmingham corporation
at a fair valuation, in accordance with
tho methods prescribed in tho general
tramways act. The present municipal
linos nro operated iu part by horse power and iu part bystoam, with cable and
oloorrioity also introduced ou certain
routes.
The terms of rental aro worthy of
mentiou: I, Tho leasing companies
agree to pay 4 per cent on tho full municipal investment for the first 14 years
of tlio lease and 6 per cent for the re*
maining seven yoars. 2. Tho companies
also pay an annual sum which at compound interest will accumulate a fund
equal to thu whole capital outlay at tho
end of the 21 years' lease. It is calculated and agreed that 4 por cent for 14
yoars nnd 5 por cent fir tho remaining
seven years will sufflco to raiso the full
amount of capital, Meanwhile also tho
companies pay all current charges for
repairs and maintenance of the lines
upon receiving bills certified by the city
surveyor. It should bo remembered that
Birmingham is able to borrow at very
low rates, and it is clear that these
terms are profitable to tho municipality.
At tho end of tho 31 yoars tho earning
value of the franchises will have increased, and new louses can bu executed
on terms still more advantageous to the
city. Hut while Birmingham has thus
protected tho ratepayers so handsomely
it has necom pi lulled even moro in tho
guarding of thu interests of thn traveling public. Every detail as to ratos of
faro and character ofsorvlco is described
in the bylaws and regulations thnt tho
companies havo to accept. Tho minuteness of tho requirements touching duties

There ure several ways of rendering
tho growth of plants both nudiblu und
visible, but thu modus operandi lu tho
"latest improved" experiments Is as
follows: In ordur to make tho growth
of a very vigorous plant visible, a line
platinum wire should lie ourufully attached to tho growing part. Tho other
end uf this wire should bu attached to a
pencil pressing gently against a drum
which is being driven by clock work. If
thu growth bu uniform a straight line
is marked ou tho paper, but tlio very
slightest increoso is shown by inclined
tracing.
A slight modification of this arrangement renders the growth audible. Iu
thi>- experiment tho drum must bo covered with platinum foils of a certain
width uud separated from ouch othur by
spaces of about one -eighth of an inch.
These strips of platinum should bn
mado to complete tho circuit of a gal
vanie battery, to which au oluotrio bull
is attached. In this enso tho boll is
kept continually ringing while tho
plant is growing tho height of tho width
uf thu strips used uud Is silent, while the
pointer Is passing over the spares between the strips nf metal. Tho growing
of corn may ho heard direct by moans
of thu microphone, and there am thoso
who tluelaru that they hnvo heard it

in tho highest part of a largo and imposing building, situated on tho street
Chntissoo-d'Antin, a young mun of tho
name of Passeraud perched liko a sparrow on tho topmost brunch uf a poplar
treo. Tbu manners of this young man
were peaceful and orderly; his temper
wns gentle; his bearing modest; his
clothes wero patched. The janitor had
expressly forbidden this insignificant
tenant to huve in his possession a dog,
a violin, a sowing machine—anything,
no matter what, which wus cumbersome
or noisy. Ho was enjoined to come in
very early at night. It was a question
in the neighborhood how ho managed
to keep his hands clean, for tho janitor
had forbidden him to take up any water, because this liquid, carried carelessly in jugs by his youthful hands,
might dampen the stairs. However, by
good will and good humor, Passoraud
had succeeded in making his presence
supportable, although only a poor devil
in n houso inhabited by bankers, favor-
ito tenors, diplomats and commissioners
of accounts.
He had recently left tho Ecolo Cen-
tralo with an honorable standing, nnd
almost immediately the Calcium Mining company of tho upper Peloponnesus
bad ottered him a position—$100 a
month to begin with—which would
huve put him out of tho reach of want,
but us ho dreamed of inventing an automatic brake, which would prevent
locomotives from coming into collision
ou tho ruilroad or at least would re*
duce the force of the shock, ho had refused thoutfursof tbe mining company,
to givo himself night and day to tho
drawing of innumerable diagrams of
the brake in question. Therefore he
looked forward to glory and fortune,
but while ho waited ho wns dying of
hunger. That mattered not to him; his
invention—ho was absolutely sure of
that—his invention wus on tho point of
succeeding.
Ono day on the first flight of tho staircase he encountered a young girl, blond
and exquisitely dressed nnd so graceful
that a scholar would immediately havo
called ber a goddess—as shown by her
bearing. She went forward and disappeared, light and supple, leaving behind her a subtilo odor of lemon verbena, and Passeraud, astonished, remained motionless in tho middle of the
landing for fivomfnutcs with his mouth
open, as though ho expected that the
vision of his peerless neighbor would
present itself to bim anew.
Tho next day, by n coincidence
which wo would like to believe quito
fortuitous, Passeraud wus on tho samo
landing exactly at tho same hour again.
Tho young girl passed, and as it seemed
blushed In passing. Fearing that he
had wounded her, Passeraud resolved
never to como down tho staircase ut
that hour again.
Tho following day, however, ho remembered that urgent business compelled him to go out at a moment exactly identical with that when leaving
tho houso was quite forbidden him by
his decision of thu day before. He took
up his hut, nunoyed at thin business
which exposed him to tho danger of
embuiriissitig with his presenco a person whom ho would not buvo troubled
for tho world. Whnt ho dreaded happened; a new meeting took place, nnd
Passeraud was inconsolable, tho fair
maid having blushed more than before.
Hu was accordingly enraged agiiinst
himself; thu unknown oue, scundullzcd
at being thus followed, would very
probably tako steps to keep herself out
of his way. Iu order to convince himself of this misfortune, Passeraud sought
tho samo place evory day at thu same
hour, and every day drew aside on tho
stnlrcaso to let his neighbor pass,
Hi-might up politely by bis mother, ho
bowed at each meeting. At tho und of
Homo timo it seemed lo him that the
slight inclinntlon of tho head which bu
received In return took ou an luqiuct almost friendly.
Having noticed this, he went to look
at himself in tho mirror of a shop—In
his room thero was nothing of thu sort
—In order to know if his person was
such that It might pluuso ho accomplished a young girl. Then hu saw
that, oven though tlio cut of his overcoat was bad, thero was nothing repulsive about his looks, Nuxt ho inquired
with caution concerning thu first name
ul tho pretty young ludy uf tho flret
floor. He did nut know why, but be
bud a strong deslro to know ber first
naine. When ho hud learned that it
was Valentino, he was quite enchanted.
These coinings nnd goings were not
of advantage to thu aiitouiatlo brake;
tho diagrams were neglected.
At last Pusseruiid took a decided
step; ho dressed himself as well ns po%
nihil-, went down to thu apartments of
Valentino's father, who wus no less u
persumige than M. I.umumln, owner of
the largo and Imposing building, und
said to him, "Sir. I havu tbo honor to
usk fur your daughter's hand."
"My daughter's hand!" said tho astonished old gentleman, eying Passu-
rnud from head, to foot, "For whom, If
you please?"
"For myself, sir."
"For yourself I Why, are you not my
little tenant of tbe garret, up (Here under the roof?"
"Yes, sir."
"Then what do you moan? My
daughter has $800,000. I am willing
to inform you of that fact. Do you
tako it in? Eight hundred thousand.
And you, what huve you?"
Tho engineer answered frankly; then
bo added:
"I am not actually rich, but if you
givo mo Mile. Valentino believe mo
that my work, my humble acquirements"	
"Stop talking! Your conversation is
of no interest to me. Will you pluaso
to tako your departure at once? It
makes me die of laughing to have you
como to ask mo for my daughter. 1
buvo only to add, Voud evening.' "
"But, sir, if 1 do not present my suit
until ufter my automatic brake has
mado me a millionaire, I risk finding
Mile. Valentino muiried to another.
Now, sir, I do not wish to run any such
risk."
"So much the worse. What do you
want mo to do about it?"
Passeraud retired in much distress.
Dunging thu doors ufter him, M, Lnmuu-
tin exclaimed i
"Not a centl No position 1 Asks
for my daughter. Ah, really, it is quito
interesting."
This visit, which bud such an unfavorable result as logards our friend, left
very slight traces on the mind of M.
Lamantin. What brought, soverul
days later, au anxious look to tbe lat-
ter's faco was simply tho fact that Ms
parlor chimney smoked.
In thu middle of tho month of December and just as bo was preparing
to urrangu a reception in honor of his
daughter's nineteenth birthday his parlor chimney began to smoke. A householder could scurecly have had u more
disagreeable thing happen to him. M.
Lamantin sent fur his architect, who
hastened to come, smelling un order.
"Is that alt?" ho said, vexed when ho
learned whnt tho mutter wus.
"I think thnt is quito enough. It is
not amusing to own a chimney that
makes my wifu aud myself weep ull
day long, like a family recently alllict-
ed."
"Your chimney was built on my
plans.   Thnt means it dues uot smoke."
"But it does sinoko."
"Bocauso you burn Monscoul. Don't
burn Mous. Bum wood, and you will
have a clear fire."
"Perhaps you aro right."
Tho change to wood in placo of coal
did not mako tho chimney's breathing
easier. M. Lamantin, who was a rcso-
luto man, sent for tho best architect in
Paris and begged him to deign to come
in person to study thu question.
The artist, after having minutely examined the chimney, did not scruple to
restrain this cruel reflection on his
brother in art, "What ass built this
chimney?"
"It was Ledento, my architect."
"It was well said; un ass. Have the
flue mude four inches higher, in order
to increase the draft. It will be all
right then."
"What a simple matter it is, after
all!"
"It only needed n littlo thought."
Tho operation completed, tho chimney smoked us before. But tho great
architect took care of bis bill.
"Hang it, what a bill!" M. Lamantin could not help signing as be paid it.
Disgusted with architects, tho householder turned to bricklayers. Tho first
one called in ordered the addition to
tho flue of a piece of sheet iron in tho
form of a serpent.
Tbo chimney continued tu send out
its smoke into thu parlor.
A second bricklayer arrived; with
disgust ho bud his colleague's serpent
removed and substituted for it a sort of
helmet of tho sumo material.
Thu chimney did not pay any attention to tbo helmet, but smoked worse
than ever.
But hero tho concierge interposed
with these consoling words: "Sir, you
are wrong to despair. 1 was just this
moment talking of this matter with
ono of the tenants—oh, I must sny It,
such u nice tenant! Ho tub! mo thnt
ho would undertake to disenchant your
chimney iu fivo minutes."
"Let him come to mo instantly, or 1
givo him notice to leave."
As quick as lightning Passeraud put
himself ut tbe orders uf M. Lamantin,
Ho found his landlord trnmpingup and
down bis parlor, which was as cold as
ice.
"Ah, It Is you, young mun, who flat-
tor yourself you can euro in live minutes chimneys Incurably ill. Try; 1
am curious to sou you do It."
"Fivo minutes is a llttlu too short n
time, sir.    1 want an hour."
"Very well—SO hour. Here is a
chimney given up by all tho doctors.
If you make It agree to scud its smoke
up Into tho skies instead of dowu into
my apartments, I will givu you what
you wish, I am quito out of patience,
I do not wish to bargain. Name your
price."
"Htr,"ans\vcicd Passoraud, with dig-
nlty, "yon will givo mu-tho hand of
Mile, Valentino. Thnt Is my price-
to be paid only alter I hnvo succeeded."
"For a chimney! You waudur iu
four talk, my dear sir,"
"This chimney, sir? Send fur M.
Muriiler, the architect of the opera; add.
to him a plaited jury of engineers,
chemists, members of tho institute, professors fiom the P.colo des Hautes
Ktudca, and If those gentlemen can do

"Tho bund of my duugbterl That Is

do possess such a secret, you will be
able tu make money, n gruut deal of
money, and"	
"I have a secret iu reality, and lis]
hnvoo high opinion of It you will give

this parlor for an hour, nud you will
glvu me your word nut to look through
the keyhole. I only go to work on that
condition."
"As you pleaBe. But why have you
not simply taken out a patent? You
would avoid these childish precautions."
"I am not rich enough to pay tbe
first premium on a patent."
"Borrow the money. This is a cuse
for borrowing, if ever there was one."
"Sir, I hate borrowing.".
"Woll, I am going, Perform your
mysterious operations in peace and
tranquillity."
"You will not look through tho keyhole?"
"I give you my most solemn promise."
"And—I have your word—if 1 succeed?"
" We will see. I do not wnnt to yield
on compulsion, but I am a just man."
Onco alone, Passeraud wasted no
time in foolish proceedings rather out
of place, the gravity of the circumstances considered. An attentive spectator—but Passoraud had banished
spectators—would have beard bim hum
the uir:
Cost Icl quo Row respire!
The same surprised spectator would
have seen him go frum one piece of furniture to another with n delighted air,
walking as in a dream among tho beautiful furniture, extend himself at full
length upon tbe sofa—here Valentino
must have sut!—then install himself in
u small chair—this low seat is without doubt tho ono sho prefers!—then
gazo for a long while nt a young girl's
portrait—that is her dear picture,—-and
throw kisses to it—to you, ovon to youl
These frivolous proceedings having consumed tho appointed 110 minutes, Passeraud opened the doors and called every ono.
"Have a firo made, sir."
Passeraud was obeyed. Tho chimney
had now a clear, strong draft. A gentle
warmth breathed through tho chilled
and frosty room. Thero was not tho
least smoke. Passeraud's genius shone
out like tbo sun; bu who could not see
it was blind.
"It is too delightful!" exclaimed M.
Lamantin radiantly. " Valentino, this
dear young mun is a great engineer.
He shall bo my son-in-law, with your
consent."
A year after these miraculous events
Mine. Passeraud—nee Lamantin—had
a son as beautiful as tho morning. Upon this occasion M. Lamantin made the
following speech:
"My dear son, explain one thing to
me. Three months ago the railroad
companies adopted your automatic
bruko; gold showers upon you from all
sides; tho right to uso your patent is
purchased in England, America, Italy,
Australia, tbe Indies and Spain. You
are now rich, not from your wife's
dowry, but of yourself. Does not that
make you think seriously? But to come
to what is troubling me; you have on
hand another invention, and you do
nothing with it."
"To what invention do vou allude,
sir?"
"Why, what else could it be but your
secret for preventing chimneys from
smoking. Ah! you aro uot going to
tell me now that you aro too poor to
pay tho premium?"
" Pshaw! that would not bring much."
"It would be a spoke in tho wheel;
why neglect a profit ready to your
hand?"
"Father, do not let us talk about It."
"Yes, yes; I wish to."
"Father, you will oblige me to tell
you things I would rather keep to myself."
"Speak out, speak out."
" Well, then, know that I did not core
your chimney of smoking; simply
stopped muking it smoke. There is a
shadoof difference between these two
things. My room was then under tbe
roof. I had only to put out my band
to check tho druft by placing something, no matter what, over the Hue—
a plate, for example. It wus your

A French profeusor told the recent
ncieutiflo congress in Rome that "all
mountains will vanish off the face of the
earth iu courso of timo." We do not
doubt it, for it is divinely foretold that
the earth itself will disappear at the end
of time. However, the Frenchman's
prophecy is already in course of realization. The Ardennes, tho Pyrenees and
tho mountains of Provence ore going to
peicos by degrees in our own age. The
mighty Himalayas, as if weary of "rearing their forms sublime" through so
many generations, noddod their heads
in one placo two years ago and hurled
into the valleys below a moss of debris
whioh was estimated at 800,000,000
tons. Tho largest locomotive on tho fast
trains of tho Hudson River railway
weighs only 03 tons. That Asiatic
mountain slide, therefore,caused an nvu-
lanche oquivuluut to the tumble of about
13,000,000 suoh locomotives off a bridge
10,000 fuet high. Little wonder that
"tbo noise was terrific" and that "the
natives were frightened." Masses of
rock wore hurlud a mile away, and
"many blocks of dolomitio limestone,
weighing from III) to 60 tons, woro sout
liko camion balls through tho air."
In 1881, in tho Alps, there was au
immense hill fall, caused by Its human
undermining in order to obtain sluto for

In 1870 tho Plattcuhorkoph split ucross
its crown, und ufter progressive enlargements for years, which caused comment
uud forebodings, it fell in tho year
named. This oatastropho preuipituted
about 12,000,000 oubio yards of rook
1.476* fuet downward into tho valley.
Tho debris ricochottod ucross tho volley
and rolled UUfifeut up thu opposite slope,
whuro it was canted ovor sideways, und
then poured liko liquid over a horizontal piano of about 0,700,000 square feet
and to a depth of from 35 to 70 foot.
One-half of tho village of Elm was
overwhelmed, aud it was so swiftly
cleft by tho resistluss mass that tho line
was sharply defined, and one boose was
cut in two. Ono hundred and fifteen
peoplo were buried. One home was loft
on tho very verge, of whioh the doors
were open, the firo burned, the table
was sot, tho coffee was hot, but no living soul was left The head of the
household was saved, but his entire family, who were out looking at the mountain fall, were lost The debris dammed
up a river, for which a channel was
blasted afresh. Now soil was carried into tho valley, and spread over tbe ruins
whoro harvests now smile again, and
tho people go about their work as if
thero woro no such thing as on ava-
laucho iu this humbling and crumbling
world.
Tho process of change In earth levels
in all lauds is illustrated in your un-
paved book yard or village street after
heavy rains. Each tinyrlvnlet no larger
than yonr little finger has its floods, its
narrower limits where it runs in its
squnro foot of harder soil, and is thereby pinched sideways, its sudden shallow
ing and widening where tbo soil is soft*
er, and tbe panic stricken ants or bedraggled beetles are oaught in theii
miniuturo world aud routed as men are
on a larger scale. Ten feet square ot
back yard may illustrate the succession
of ovents which make seas shallower
and mountains lower. The snroharged
warm cloud gets a chill as it caresses the
head of some dignified peak, the sudden
condensation upsets the shower ont of
the atmosphere's myriad cell buckets,
aud the torrent rushes down the breasts
and limbs of the mountains bo swiftly
that tho surprised soil catches the spirit
of punio and forgets to obey gravitation
until it finds itself at sea aud almost out
of sight of shorn That transfer of earth
leaves tho hills thinner and deposits
that which makes the river or bay or
sua somewhat less deep. People live in
tho lowlands near their grain and fruits,
and these thrive on the alluvium washed down by torrents and flood. That
theft of matter makes tho mountains
barubeudod and puts the valley nudor
obligation to the storms whluh feed tho
crops with plant nutriment stolen from
above. Like man, tho harvests lift their
eyes to the hills, whence their help
comes. Tho mountains are being carried
into tho sea, aud man demands tribute
au they pass.
Tbe foroos of nature and tbe elements
in buttle, like tho gospel, aro levelors.
Thoy bring tlowu thu mighty and lift up
tbu lowly. Ono of these days thu earth
must bu resurvuyed. Tho aspirations of
tho hills will have been reduced; thu
depths of thu rlvurs, bays and oceans
will bo less. Mun who journey by water
may return to thu plana and proportions
that best suited thoso who built the ark,
and they may see that Noah knew something about shipbuilding, notwithstanding our Amurlcnns, Auranias aud Campania*. David may havo bad a thought
of till this when hs said, "Tho hills
molted like was at thu presenco uf tho
Lord." Isaiah wrote, "Tho mountains
flowed down nt thy presence." Kzuklol
said, "Thu mountain shall bo thrown
down, nud the steep places shall fall."
If those Alpine dwellers at Elm read
their liiblos, they must havu thought of
these passages aftor they recovered from
their surprise. —Northwestern Christian

The flood of negro talk that has discolored our recent literature is not a dialect. It consists chiefly of tho vulgarism,

tho survivul of old forms nud usages.
Nor is it duo iu utiy appreciable dogroo

Hugo of our lowest classes, with small
distinction on account of rucouud color.
It is kitchen tulk, us'distinguished

may occasionally otter us a word or

And yet Ihe null lingo is not half so

From lie ArgUJi Alpcnii, Mich.]
We have lung known .Mrs. Jus, M.
Todd, of Long Hapids, Alpena Co.|
Mich. She has boon n sad cripple.
Many of her friends know tho story of
her recovery; for the benefit of those
who do not we publish it todny.
Kiptht years uk<> >die wus taken with
nervous pi-ostrutiuu, and in n few
muutlis with muscular und inflammatory rlieiimutism. It nffootod her heart,
then ber head. Hor foot become so
swollen she could wonr nothing on
them. Her bunds wero drawn ull nut
of shape, Her eyes went BWOlloU shut
moro tbiiii hull' of tlm time, her knee
joints turribly swoUon uud for oightooti
months she bad tn bo hold up to bo
dressed. Ouo limb became entirely
helpless, uud the skin wus so dry nud
cracked that it would bleed. During
these night yours sho had been treated
by u score of physicians, uud bus also
spent much timo nt Ann Arbor under
best medical advice All said hor
trouble was brought on by hard work
und that medicine would uot euro, and
that rest wus the ouly thing which
would ouso hor. After going to live
with her daughter she became entirely
helpless and could not even raise hor
arms to cover herself nt night. Tho
interesting part of her story follows in
her own words:
"I Was urged to try Dr \Y;llinms'
Pink Pills for Palo People und nt last
did so. In three days after I commenced
taking Pink Pills I could sit up nud
dross myself, and ufter using them six
weeks I went homo and commenced
working. 1 continued taking the pills,
until now I begin to forget my crutches,
and eau go up and down stops without
aid. I am truly a living wonder, walking out of doors without assistance."
"Now, if I can say anything to iu-
duco those who huvo suffered ns I
hnvo, to try Pink Pills, I shall gladly
do ho. If othor liko sufferers will try
Pink Pills according to directions, thoy
will huvo reason to thank God for
creating men who uro able to conquer
thnt torrbilu disease, rheumatism. I
havo in my own neighborhood recommended Pink Pills for tho after effects
of lu grippe, und weak women with
impure blood, uud with good results."
Mrs. Todd is very strong in hor faith
in tho curative powers of Pink Pills,
und says they havo brought a poor, helpless cripple buck to dn her own milking, churning, washing, sewing, knitting, uud iu fuet about all of her household duties, thanks to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain ull
tho elements necessary tu givo now life
and richness to tlto blood and rcstoro
shuttered nerves. Thoy aro for sale by

THE GREAT BALTIC CANAL IS NEARLY COMPLETED.
To Be Formally Opened With Great Festivities the First Week lit June—It In
Expected to Revolution 17.0 the Cum-
mereo of Northern Europe.
It Is a big ditch that tho GormariH aro
just completing between Brunsbuttel, on
thu river Klbu, 0 tow miles from tho
North sen, und Kiel, on tho Halite, but In
some respects this canal, nlthuuyh a vory
big ono and destined to bo of great Importance both In tbu commercial and thu naval future of Europe, is not so much of a
thing as thu canal nuw being dug for tho
double purpose of carrying nwuy tho sewage of Chicago und furnishing moans of
navigation between tho great lakes nnd
tlio Mississippi.
Tho ftnltlo canal Is OS miles long, while
thn Chicago canal proper will roach only
about UO miles, but couii ting the improve-
montS along tho Illinois river that will
virtually bu un extension of tho navigable
channel Its total length will bo about U-!0
miles. In some places tho German channel
will bu I19H feci wide nt the surfacu, but Us
general width will bo only Sim foot, while
tlm general width of thu Chluugo ditch Ih
1)00 feot ut tho surfneu In nil but thu rock
cuttings, nnd Its width at thn bottom Is
everywhere Hid feut, or considerably In excess of the bottom width of tlie canal between Mruiiflbuttul and Kiel, Tho uust of
thu Chicago canal will tie somewhat greater than that of thu <termini one, just how
much will nut bu apparent, however, according tu nil American precedents, until
thu work Is completed. It may bo sot

In many thingB which make life burden-
BOUte, it is not merely ttio discomforts we
feel, but the loss of timo and money.
Among minor accidents, none are more
liable to cause this than a sprain. Very
many serious cases are known tbut huv
oobta life-time of misery and very much in
tiniB and money. Ml.cn of this is owing
to neglect. St. Jacobs O.I, used promptly
on the worst cuse uf sprain, will cure it us
surely us it is used. It is the best and
needs only the cure und attention uf applying it in good time to make the cure eneo*
live and permanent.

imis will oat up more money thnn tho estimates cnll for, but thu German channel,
wo uro assured, will bu finished ut an expense well within tho original estimate
of till),000,000.
It scorns certain, too, thnt tho Hal tic canal will bo finished by tho time sot by the
engineers, and all Gormany Is now preparing to celebrate its opening during tho
first wcok In Juno. Hamburg, Kiel and
ovory town and village lying along the
lino will bo brilliant with flags und alive
with visitors during the festivities. Before
tho formal opening Emperor William, in
his yacht, followed by a squadron of Gorman warships, will make u tour ot official
Inspection, and evory nation In tho world
possessed of a navy worth ment liming will
mako It a point to be represented by somo
of Its vory best ships. Just what the United Stutos will do In this direction hns not
yot boon fully decided upon, nnd thoro bus
boon considerable discussion as to how big
our naval display shall be,
The Importance of tho new cnnal from
ovory standpoint con hnrdly bo overestimated. Whon It Is finished, German men-
of-war can puss from one sea to tho other
without Bulling through foreign waters,
find It will then be possible quickly tocon-
cimtrnto tho on tire German navy upon
either tho north or thu west cnast. To tho
merchant marine the now channel will bo
hnrdly less Important. Tbo having In time
Olid distance will bo vory considerable.
Fur ships plying between the llaltlc and
points south of Hull tho new course will
bo 2118 miles shorter than tho old ono.
Bremen ships will save 833 miles and
Hamburg ships 434, but o still greater
gain will be made In respect of safety, for
thu passage between Jutland, thu northernmost part of Denmark and tho Scandinavian peninsula, which Is now the only
available ono for vossols In tho Baltic sea
trade, Is counted one of tho most dangerous In Europe, more than S00 crafts being
annually lost upon Its trc.icborous coasts,
Tho now canal stretches cress tho Prussian province of Holsteln. Along nearly
Its entire course thu soil Is fuvoinblo to
canal building, although tn some pluoaB It
hus boon found difficult to make a good
bed, becausu of boggy and marshy ground.
But newborn have the builders of this
canal encountered any suoh abnormal formations of bind or rook or suoh rushing
torrents oh confronted thoso who undertook tho Panama canal or suob trencher-
ous sand as hnd to be overcome by Do Los-
sops In oieuvatlng tbe .Suez canal. At no
placo la tho soil more than 80 feet above
tbo sea level, nnd therefore It has not been
necessary to construct looks ut any point
excepting at oaoh end.
Thoso looks form a vory Important nnd
costly fenturu of the Baltic canal. Their
construction has boon necessary because of
the differences botweun the tide levels of
the two connected sous. Tho look nt tbo
Baltic end will not havu to bo used more
than ur. or UO times a year, slnco thu rise
nud full of the tide upon the Baltic Is vory
■light. Thu rise and full of thu Nurth sea
tide, however, Is so great that but fur tho
look tho depth of water In thu canal
would vary frum 10 to 37] a feot. Thu lock
tt Brunsbuttel will therefore havu tu be
kept closed must of tbu lime.
Thu two looks aru thu largest In tho
world, with Ihe exception of that at Hn.un-
erhiivon, near tbu river Wimur's mouth.
Each consists nf two obnmhers, parallel
nnd contiguous. Euch chamber hus nn
available length of 4011 foot aud n width nf
HU feet. Nlncu thu North German Lloyds'
largest transatlantic steamers are tint 4(111
feut long and fitf tout wide, nnd thu largest
Ironclad In the present German navy Is
HMD long and (14 font wide, It will bu seen
that thu luck capacity Is amply sufficient
fur the largest craft that will 1st ualled to
pass through thu canal, while several
stenmors nnd sailing ships of ordinary

It was about (100 years ago thnt tho
•ubuinu fur this canal wns first broached,
hut It wns not until 1H78 thnt thu first
definite plans wore made. For years nftor
that thu project languished on account uf
thu opposition of thu military niithorltlun
Of tluwimplru. But In 1HH0 the veuerablu
Kmperor William, Prime Btsmarek und
General von Multku uaob gave udhorciioa
to thu plan, and shortly thereafter thu bill
fur thu ennui's construction was poshed by
thu relehstag. On dune 11, 1HH7, the work
wns formally Inaugurated by the present
ompornr's grandfather.
The peoplo of Hamburg have been moro
enthusiastic about this cnnal than tlioito of
nny other city, since thuy believe thnt It
will mnku their town the supply tlopot of
all northern Europe, nssumu nnohus snid,
a veritable "Chicago on thu Elbe," but
there are others who think Hamburg will
ploy thu part of St. Louis, so to speak, to

vluw.

CLOVERDALE, JUNE 14,1895.
A REVENUE  TABIPF.
.lusl now the Li Loral papers ore
making tlio most they can ot Sir
Riohard Cartwright's amendment
to llic (ii)vvrniiieiilK'Supply resolution in tho Dominion Parliament.
It is true there isn't vory much to
make, tlie simple fuet being thnt
the amendment, which called for a
tariff for revenue only, was ovcr-
whelmly defeated ; but then, the
Liberal party is so accustomed to
being defeated, that it is able to
measure degrees of success that to
ti party moro favored by the people
Would appear onlvas blank failure.
However, a little sketch of the
record of a revenue tariff in Canada
may be of interest to some of our
readers at this lime : When the
Dominion of Canada was organized
the peoplo nf the Mnratimc Provinces took their measures on business principles) and amongst other
things it was implicitly agreed that
a customs tariff of 15 per cent.
Bhould he sufficient to provide
necessary revenue, and that therefore the Canadian duty should not
\ye increased above that rate, except under conditions out of ordinary. Up to 18711, the Conserva
lives held the reins of power, and
Ihe 16 per cent, duty wttB deemed
Sufficient for the needs of the country, the one purpose boing to collect
from the people only sufficient
money to carry on the administration of the Government. In 1873,
the Liberals were elected to office,
and the control of the finances was
entrusted to Sir Richard Cartwright
Who theiij as now, was the greal
financier of the party. Almost
immediately a series of deficits
commenced that alarmed the Canadian public. Tlie Liberals were
not able to meet expenses with a
lo per cent tariff, and the genius of
Cartwright was hopelessly at fault.
When in opposition, the leaders of
Ihe Liberal party, after the identical same manner as they are doing
now, had assured the [ifiople that
the public fluids were lieing wasted
and that when ihey came into power
retrenchment would lie the order
lit the ilnyi and economies would
lie effected that would immediately
result in an easy treasury.
All the snme, the Liberals amid
hot collect enough revenue, under
the 15 per' cent tariff-, to pay the
charges of Government as administered by themselves. Millions of
dollars W8re required tb meet accumulated deficits. Then the Liberals
look radical measures. They did
not reduce tbe expenditure, but
they increased the revenue by adding 2{ per cent, to tbe tariff) con
(rnry to pledges made to the Mnra-
liiue Provinces. Thus, it was Hone
Other llinn the Liberals themselves,
With all Ibeir frei1 trade talk) who
first Increased the Canadian tariff.
Moreoverj they tailed mnny articles
'if general consumption since i le
tree, for there was no thoughl of nn
Incidental policy of protection, and
the now tariff Ot 17J per cent was
aimed directly nud avowedly nt
tbe pockets of the people.
Although the Incapable financing
'if the Liberals lost the parly the
bonfldence of the people, as was
lininistakoably shown at Ihe next
general election, still the increase
hi tariff did not receive the general
condemnation that was probably
contemplated by those who made
It. The people ml doubt realized
that more itioney had to hC raised
to conduct the Government under
ulberal mitriagfimont) arid consider-
"il that an indirect tux was better
llbtn it direct one. Tho increase of
tllriff gave Ihe Liberals but a inoa-
"Hi'fc of Hnancial relief, and if thoy
burl been onttttnasd in nrtkri there
is every likelihood that another
increase would soon havo been required for revenue purposes. It
will be seen, then, that when Sir.
Cartwright moved for a "tariff for
revenue only," it is hard to Bay
what rate of duty that would imply. When in office formerly, be
adopted l".| per cent, as the proper
thing, but when going out of office
it was manifest to the general public that a '20 per cent tariff would
fit the case better, and if ho and
his colleagues had continued to
operate the Government machine
a still higher figure might have had
to be struck "for revenue only."
The Conservative party when In
opposition, shrewdly inquired Into
the operation of the increased tariff
of the Liberals. They discovered
that the collection of sufficient rev
enue could be made incidentally
the means of encouraging all sorts
of manufactures in Canada without adding to the burdens of the
people. The scheme was elaborated
and was familiarized to the public
as tho "National Policy." In 1878
the Canadian electorate was asked
to choose between tho Liberal tariff
for revenue as they were then experiencing it, and the proposed
National Policy of the Conservatives. - The electors Swept the Liberal Administration out of existence. They had had enough of
Liberal revenue tariff; by the evidence they had already had enough
to satisfy them of it for twenty
years, and dear knows how many
years longer.

days ago. The roof was on lire as
the train was passing, and Engineer Cooper not only whistled an

he and Conductor Sullivan carried
water from tho engine and after a
smart effort Hucceeded in extinguishing the flames, which Was certainly a very neighborly turn on
