either butter or cheese on improved
principles in order to keep up with

frost seems to quicken everybody, Vou

thick heavy mints nil day; quiet, unlet,
no sound save the drip from the moisture
laden boughs and the sad fall of leaves—
all the world dying. Hui on II sudden everything Is changed, Von awaku ono
morning. Outsiile your window a warren
Is sieging a song with but two nolOB, Thu
BUR has come out; Ihe mists have gone; it
Ih crisp aud cold; the witter cntcklcHin the

Down stairs everything is warm; the

Vou know now the frenzy Is beginning.

All uf which menus that tho rituals are

and now a good, hard front will make life

If you mil's the maids, you may know
they aro trying Iho ice on the moat with

might think something dreadful was hup

ami scolded because he had noma thought
of spoiling thn leu by pulling his boat
through. "It Is closed. Let il stay closed,"
they cry, ami he gives in, whether to public
opinion nr bis own desire who shall say?
And ho tt freescssteadily for a week,
quietly and smilingly, without wind, thu
ono ami only enemy to skating In Holland. Several hoys, in thu nieuntlme, too
venturesome, have been lugged out of the
canal and kicked ami cuffed for spoiling
the Ice. And then ouo morning It Is fro*
/.en .solid, and ull Iho Jlolhmdmi ure happy.
In the summer, for tho pi asant. It hns
been nothing but grind, with the exception of n few days' klrmess, which leaves
nn aching head ami empty pocket. Now
there Is pleasure without paying. Vou
may go tu tho uttermost parts of thu
earth or Holland, which Is the sume to
them, for nothing, and so tlitre nre happy
junketings on the Ice, distant friends aud
relatives to be visited-—else never seen—
and engagements to be kept which were
made tho winter before.
Tho whole country Is a network of cn-
nals, and they servo three purposes—no,
four—as means of communication, ono
canal leading into another* uh drains to
keep the land dry and habitable; In placo
of walks or fences or hedges, and, tho
fourth purpose, to skate upon.
Herein lies thu fascitis! ion of skating In
Holland—you can go somewhere, anywhere, everywhere. And incredible is the
speed nnd endurance of thu Dutch ou
skates — although Donoghuc did beat
them. Donoghuc, like Ohnuis, Is a genius
—all Dutchmen cannot win the diamond
sculls—but I doubt If In long distances
nny American enn outspeed the Hollander. We flkote better—that Ih to say, wo
dn things on ourskatesn Dutchman would
never dream of doing, hut for long distances tbe Dutch would outlast uh.
Near the village it Ih like 11 scene from

women, all guy and boisterous, nil in a
maze of delightful color—gold and silver,
Inco covered head dresses—surmounted,
alas, too often by hideous modern bonnets
—bright skirts, gaudy aprons and colored
cloaks among thu women. The mon more
somber, but none the less picturesque.
Most of tbe men nro In slippers. If you
nre new to the sight, you will look with

everywhere.   You wonder If thuy nre go

An Incident Which I «-i to nn .Explanation
of the SiijMTHtitiiiik.
In India thore Is n common superstition
to the effect thnt tho Jeweled cobra, a most
poisonous reptile, can never be found
without Its precious stone. Tho MXttvefl
assort that us soon as a cobra loses its
stone or bus it taken away It eventually
dies a lingering death or oouiniltaauloldo.
These sunken are rather rare; otherwise
thla superstition would have ceased to exist. However, au entomologist of an inquiring turn of mindland a dabbler in electricity, recently returned Irom India, tells
tlie following Incident, showing how electricity can even serve tlm double purpose
of exploding mines ami false theories:
It appears that hu was anxious to catch
a number of Indian llrellles, aud as a decoy he used a half candle power Incandescent lamp, current being furnished hy a
(.mall sulphate of mercury primary battery, The battery ami lamp hu deposited
upon tbu ground lu a neighboring thicket
or jaiiglu and awaited developments. It
should here be mentioned that ouly thu
male fly Ih provided with the brilliant
light, white thu female gives but a faint
glow and iloes ind. leave die ground,
The first night that the lamp remained
ou thu ground very few of tlie mule (lies
came near It. This he surmised to bittlun
lo the fact of Hie light being so Intense,
Ho the next night bu set (lie decoy aguin,
dimming tho lump, however, hy covering
It with some tissue paper, lie laid this
down hy a tree, uml net In hand awaited
tlie coming of the male IHch,
They came, loo, In short order, nml In
qUltO a little while he hnd secured a lot of
Bpi'clmona,   Suddenly, however, the air
WIIB freo from fllOS, They disappeared uh
if by magic, .lust then tlie entomologist,
thinking that the cnusuof I heir Midden
departure must be due lo something unusual, looked down lo sie if ihe lamp was
stilt burning. It had gone out. Stooping
d»m n In thu darkness, he placed his baud
where hu thought the lamp ought to be,
and to IiIh great horror ho found that he
had touched the molstsklnof a living
cobra. The reptile had swallowed the
lump, thinking It to be n cobra's jewel.
It Is almost needless to say I hat there
was a mutual surprise, but it was comparatively easy to tell which was the more
Irightfiicd. Tlie snake slurred off, ami uh
the battery huh a little loo heavy for him
lo drag along, tbe wires being strong, the
lump wns forcibly removed from IiIh
This Incident led tnun investigation,
nml It was found that tlie cobra while
young makes a search for a phosphorescent pebble. compOHcd probably of barium
sulphide, which, upon being slightly heated, produces a light which resembles that
emanating from the female lire!!,v. This
lie lays upon the gruund Immediately In
front of his mouth, and as the winged Insects approach they become nt) easy prey
to this most venomous reptlie—Klectrical

Jiat, If tho whole bruin is locked up In
deep, there is no dream. If a portion of
it. is emancipated, thoughts peculiar to
1 hat portion arise, and those thoughts are
dreams. According to Ur. David Hartley,
ihey are nothing buttle imaginations,
fancies or reveries of a sleeping person,
ind urn duo to houio peculiar statoof the
itomach or brain, to impressions received
while awake, or to tbe effect of association.
In thn same vein Andrew Baxter declares that most of the representations offered to tho soul In sleep ure not ouly not
produced by It, but there 1h no consciousness of any action of thu will to introduce them. They nro Involuntarily obtruded upon tt. Uu cannot oonoelvo of auy<
Ihlug more absurd than to suppose thnt
the soul, ns lu a nightmare, would lay n

minietit of those who contend thnt dreams
Indicate thu activity of the soul separate
from ami Independent of the body, Dr.
Priestly asked 1 Why does not this Independent entity contemplate thu slate of
the body nnd brain during steep, which
might well afford It mutter enough for
reason and reduction^
Ho, too, Dr. Cromwell, In his work on
Tbo Soul and thu Future l.lfc," assorts
Ihnl- drcuuiH lake plueu only when the
ilei'p Is unsound nnd arise from part lal returns of activity of the brain Itself. These
views fairly reflect tho consensus of opinion regarding I ho origin nud character of
the phenomena,
on tho other hand, thero is authority
us eminent for the belief I hut all dreams
an not bo Mitlsfnotnrily explained on the
it-rounds above staled—that them Is ■
something left out which it Ih of the high-
^t consequence to iiiiilcrstniul before a
posliivu Judgment can bu pronounced.
The student of Xenophon will recall thu
remarkable passage which the historian
puts into thu mouth of the dying Cyrus
tho Klder: "Nor do I feel convinced that
the soul will ho devoid of sense when It Is
Hcpnruted from tlm senseless body, hut it la
probable that when the mind is separated,
unmixed nod pure, It is then also most
intelligent. When thu frnmeof man la
dissolved, every part of him Ih seen returning to that which is of the same nut ure as
Itself, except thu soul, which alone Ih seen
neither present nor departing. Hullect.
too, that nothing more closely resembles
the death of mnn than sleep, hut It Is In
sleep that the soul of man appears most
divine, and It Is then that it foresees something of the future, for then, as it seems,
it Ih most nt liberty."
The let tern of tho great Kuler to a tier-
man princess contain the following statement: "Sleep furnishes something tike an
example of the state of tho soul after
death, ns tbe union of the soul nnd body
Is then, In a great measure, interrupted,
and tho soul censes uot from activity, being employed In tho production of dreams.
These ure usually disturbed by the remaining Influence which the senses exercise, snd we know by experience that the
more this Influence Is suspended, which Is
the case In profound sleep, the moro regular nnd connected are our dreams."
Hlakcwell affirms thnt to lie able to see
without the eye, to hear with tbu ear and
to feel without touching objects, as we do
In dreams, are facts which afford direct
proof that the percipient principle Is independent nf the organs of sense nnd lead
to tho inference tbat tbe material organisation of the brain, by which tbe impressions of external objects are originally
conveyed to the mind, must lie distinct
from tho power that receives and retains
these Impressions; otherwise it would 1ms
Impossible to account for the activity of
the perceptive powcrduring the time when
the brain censes to bold any direct communication with the material world. Lord
Brougham cites thn Inconceivable rapidity of the mind's operations ss a proof of
Its independence of matter and capacity
to exist without It, and after adducing a
multitude of facta chiefly connected with
tbo phenomena of dreams suysthtit "nothing can bo conceived better calculated
than these facta to demonstrate tbe extreme agility of tho mental powers, tbelr
total diversity from nny material substance or action. Nothing better adapted
to satisfy us that the nature of tho mind
is consistent with Its existence apart from
tbo body."
There Is no denial by the advocates of
the latter view tbst drennia cun ordinarily lie accounted for on tho hypothecs generally accepted by medical men. Impaired
digestion, a feverish condition of the body,
Intense nervous strain, snd other physical causes, it ia admitted, may lw reasonably adduced to explain the phenomena.
Hut there nre well authenticated cases of
dreams of a character so remarkable ss to
render the theory of physical causes wholly inapplicable to them. Tbey seem to
demonstrate the power of the soul, during
sleep, to evolve clear Ideas ami new development* of thought which nre not the
result of automatic or unconscious sclles

Tho reoonl nppolntmout by Iho
Govornmont of two ot three nf the
long promised log seniors, calls lo
miiitl the faroloal examination nf
log mon thnt was hold in Vancouver about n year nun. Although
[t has been known for that length
of time who were the successful
candidates at the so-oalled examination, uml although the need of appointing offiolol scalers had been
agreed to hy the Government years
before, still it is a fact that tho appointments were not made till the
other day, the reason being Unit
the Government was afraid to face
tho music while the memory of
that wretched "examination" was
still fresh in the minds of tho public of the  Province.
Let us recall some of tho particulars, so that Ministers at Victoria
may rejoice in their appointments.
There were Some forty applicants
from all over the Province gathered
at Mr. Skinner's office that first
day, to be examined i'egarding
their knowledge of measuring lumber in the log. The writer was
one of the number, and was the
only candidate present who might
fairly he called a "green" hand.
The others consisted for the most
part of mon whose business had
been for years the buying or selling
of saw logs. All came in good
faith, and almost all left Mr. Skinner's office with a realizing sense of
the fact that they were not wanted
there. The first exercise was tho
computing of the amount of lumber
in a certain number of logs according to ti printed table of scales.
The principle upon which logs are
measured was never referred to. In
this exercise, which required only
rapid exactness in transferring and
adding figures, those few scalers already engaged about the mills of
'•nurse had a walk over. In that
game practice is everything, and a
Working scaler would walk over a
mathematical professor. Moreover, the candidates were not
pleased with the manner in which
the business was sprung upon them
in Mr. Skinner's office. The remainder of tbe examination consisted of the "practical test." A
number of old and condemned logs,
Were put into a boom at the Hastings Mill, and the candidates invited to scale them. No such boom
was ever seen in B. C. waters before,
nnr will likely ever be again: Almost nil the logs were culls, and it
was current at the time that the
examiners themselves had great
llifliciilty in arriving at a lumber
value for the boom, and, even then,
tif course, it could only be tin arbitrary one. As two of the three
examiners represented mill companies, the candidate was placed
In this ililema : that most of the
logs being Unmistakably oilllSj if
he allowed anything for lliem be
Would practically be accusing the
mills of robbing  loggers in times
past, while if bo tlid not allot" anything for them bo would be antagonizing the very spirit of Ihe
Log Scalers Act. Men frotn a distance were put upon the boom first,
and of course its peculiar inakc-up
was entirely new to them, and they

bame hist, and as the "circus" had
been in progress for somo two!
weeks; with a holiday for (he boom |
•very  wet  day  and  Sunday;  the
city candidates had not only time
lo obtain pointers where thoy J
L»mldi but also opportunity to crlrc-'
"illy go over the boom time and

''tion was that one man from Nnni-

country, and all the rest (six, we
believe) belonged' to Vancouver,
Thirty old ami experienced log-
gors were thrown out, nftor being
put to tin expense of probably
threo or four hundred dollars, upon
it "fool's errand."
Ho  it understood,  that  no ono
disputes the qualifications of the
mon who have now been appointed
scalers. Indeed, at that first meeting in Mr, Skinner's office, tbey
woro freely oritised as tho coming
appointees, and while many loggers
openly Intimate a "put up game,"
this writer has no inclination to
urge anything worse than a bungling examination, The examiners
were obliging and courteous from
start to finish, but it surely was a
mistake lo so arrange the method,

and they will bear that in mind
when election time comes again.
A laic despatch from London re-
spectingtrade returnslnakcs things
appear a trifle awkward for our
sprightly cotemporary, tho Victoria Times. That journal is an
ardent admirer of free trade doctrine, and being over zealous in
tho caUse of Mr. Laurier, is disposed occasionally to view happenings in a porverBe light, so that its
utterances are Hot always discreet.
Some weeks ago a Paris despatch
stated as follows:
"The director of customs at Paris
reports Unit during the first five
months of Ibe present year French
imports decreased 240,000,000
francs as compared with the cor
responding period of 1894. On the
other hand exports increased 100,-
000,000 francs during tho first five
months of 1895."
The Times, with a peculiar bins,
presented the above item to its
readers Under the headirtg "Protection Causes an Enormous Adverse
Balance of Trnde ill France."
SubrbV Timks took exception to
that Way of viewing the matter nnd
endenvored to show thnt nn increase of exports anil decrease of
imports was a national benefit, and
shortly afterwards the Times entertained its renders with an article
teaching that a bnlnnco of trnde
against a nation is a sure token of
prosperity. Now Something has
transpired thnt tbe Times did not
reckon upon when it permitted
over zenlous pnrtisnnship to bias
its judgement and lend it from the
path of plain common sense. It is
this, the identical same thing thnt
happened in protective France has
happened in free trnde England,
ns witness the following telegmm :
"London, Aug; 10.—The Times
financial article' this morning remarks that the great increase of
British exports to America for the
Inst month is indicated by the Board
of Trade returns amounting to £5,-
32(i;(i73 over 1864, while the imports have decreased £2,900,179 for
the same period."
To be consistent our Victorin
cotemporaay must now nnnolincC
to its renders that "Free Trnde
Causes nn Enormous Adverse Bnlnnco of Trnde in England)" and
that whereas the American imports of England do not equal the
exports, therefore Englnnd is being
impoverished and A mericii is getting
rich by virtue of these transactions.

" gross carelessness and negligence,

" from to escape on to any adjoin-

" mary manner, and, in default of
" payment thereof, shall bo im-
" imprisoned for any poriod nol
" exceeding three months." Half
the lino is to go to tho informer,
nod besides the minimum fine of
$50, the offending party is liable
to civil suit for damages. Our
Westminster cotemporary, doubt-
Icbb without due consideration of
all the circumstances, urges that
the law should bo enforced, ami
recommends au increase of the fine
and of the defaulting penalty. No
doubt, as the Columbian says, the
smoky atmosphere is very disagreeable, but in this regard oyes and
nostrils are just as sensitive in the
country ns in the city, whilo in the
former the risk is very much greal-
ter from forest fires. Yot in tho
country, people accept tbe smoke
with perfect equanimity, because
they know the August fires menn
incrensed ncrenge of cultivated
W« hnvo talked on this question
witli some of tho oldest and best
settlers In Surrey, and all agree
that if they are to be in any way
hampered or made liable to penalties for burning their "slashings"
during the dry months, the only
senson nt which they enn be burned) then it is time to pull up stnkes
and get out. As a matter of fact,
August has always been, and is
noW) the accepted season in this
country, for putting fire through
the "slashings" the first time preparatory to logging, and nccessnr-
ily bo, because at other seasons the
fire would not run. The question
of damage to Standing timber is si
small matter compared to the advantage of bringing land under
cultivation: In the settled district
of the B. C; coast country, timber
is a burden on the face of the earth
nnd the one one grent. evil fnrmers
have to contend with. It can only
be handled by fire, and the sooner
it goes up in Smoke the better for
all concerrned. Severe penalties
against fires in Manitoba are undoubtedly wise, for there the flames
trnvel with Ihe wind over hundreds
of square miles of territory in a
night. It is absurd to make similar laws for Ibis province where
fire rarely leaves the brush hespfc
and will not run ih the heavy forests. There nre records that a wide
forest fire once raged in Westminster District, but the oldest inhabitant cannot state  tbe time, nnd
like soiling goods under fnlse pro-
toncos. Tho provision of "gross
carelessness" needs to be defined
beforo it cun bo said to protect the
industrious settlor who "slashes" in
the winter and'burns in the sum-
mer. Surely there should be no
ill-considered legislation placed in
Ihe way of the cloaring of the land.

The C. P. R. Mail Subsidy.
Ottawa, Aug. 8.—Tho following
reply has been mude by tho Postmaster-General to the criticisms in
the Liberal press on tho recent arrangement of the Government subsidy to tho 0. P. It.: "Tho proper
time to discuss tho reasons for an
expenditure of tbo public money is
when Parliament is asked to voto
that money and it would bo altogether irregular to discuss in advance reasons which might influence
the Government in asking Parliament for a grant of money which
may ho required in a future session.
The relations between the Post
Office Department and railways in
so far ns the carriage of mails is
concerned, nro clearly defined by
Statute The Postinasler-llcncral
has power to require every railway
to carry the mails on such terms
and conditions and under surh
regulations as nro niatlo by the
(lovernor-in-Council nnd there is
no instance on record in which any
arrangement of this kind bits been
discussed iu Parliament Until Parliament was asked to vote the
money required to cai'ry it on.
The action of tho Postmaster-General has been in strict accordance
with the law and whon Parliament
is asked to provide the money required, the Postmaster-General
will be in a position to defend his
action in the matter. Wben Sir
Richard Cartwright, (Hiring the
discussion on the Estimates, asked
how much was paid for tho railway
mall service, the information was
was given at once) and the
Postmaster-General was quite
correct in stating on the 12th
of July that there was no increase
in the amount for which he was
then asking."

The Westminster Columbian of
Saturday last contains an article
under the above bending treating
of the law in regard to bush fires
and the desirability of enforcing it.
Sl'iniKV Timks, as representing a
purely agricultural community,
feels in duly bound lo take exception to Suggestions contained in
that article.
Our concern is with fires set nut
for the purpose of clearing agricultural lands. The Columbian quotes
the law as providing thut "Any per-
" son who shall, (luting the months
" of Mliy, June, Jiily, August; Sop-
" lembtfr or October, ignite in the
" open air, in nriv forest or Woods,
" being the property of nny person
" or the property iif the Crbwn, any
" mHummithl" mmerinl) and shall j
is bound to get into these combus
tilde precincts, nnd wo are not Sure
but the less delay the better.
The law us quoted by the Colilm-
bian, is an iniquity so far us it applies to fires BUI out to clear lands
for agricultural purpose. Neither
do we believe thnt it is law)
only a pnrotli of it
place, tbe right of a mun to set out
lire on his own property for his
own legitimate benefit, without
malicious intent, is an underlying
principle of the laws by which we
hold property ; nnd such u mnn is
under no obligation to extend perennial protection to his neighbor's
property, by letting his own lay
wild and waste or otherwise. AgniOJ
the Government disposed of the
agricultural lands of thn Province
upon conditions, always implied
nnd frequently stipulated, that a
certain pnrt of them should be
elctired for cultivation, nnd to then
step in and say that the settler is
liable to a penalty if he clears at
the only time he "can dean looks
