The short supply of strawberries
tliis season resulted in fair prices
being obtained by those who had
any to sell. Othpr fruits are likely
to bring poor prices, as the crop is
large and the market limited. The
average price of small fruit during
the past few years has been too
low to warrant its cultivation.

Victoria by way of Vancouver.
Tiik house-fly, as everyone
knows, is 11 great nuisance, especially during the month of August,
when their numbers increase tremendously and they become very
aggressive, Fresh broods are
hatched out every day by the
warm sun, and the nuisance is
then very difficult to check. One
fly destroyed in June or early July,
before tlie eggs are deposited, is
equivalent to the destruction of a
thousand in August. Ten cents'
worth of fresh fly-paper put out
early In the season and attended
to, will free the house from flies
for the balance of the year, and
without the filth of tlie dead and
dying insects being noticeable. If
not attended to till late In the season, no remedy is satisfactory.
Dealers recommend a disgusting
preparation called "tangle foot,"
because there is ten times as much
money in it for them, hut the old-
fashioned arsenic fly-paper will do
the work satisfactorily and at a
trifling charge if resorted to in time.
The poisoned paper, however, must
be freshly made, and not old stock
carried over.
At tlio Surrey Agricultural Exhibition next September, Ihe first

Westminster, At the time of giving the prize Mr. Godfrey said that
ho was arranging for something
specially upat to offer, but could
not then give details. In a letter
to tho secretary of the Association
yesterday, Mr. Godfrey describes
liis premium as a water set consisting of four tumblers, jug and tray.
The name of the winner anil what
Ihe prizi; was awarded for, uijil also
of Ihe Association, will be engraved
on the jug, thus constituting it a
diploma as well as a handsome
prize. The value of the set without the engraving is sj*t>. We are
.lire Mr.Godfrey's gift will bo highly appreciated, and there will no
doubt be keen competition for it.

There was an unnusually small
attendance at the annual school
meeting on Saturday. Mr. John
Bond was appointed chairman and
Mr. A. Milton secretary. The annual report of I lie Trustees was submitted and approved, The election

A Fraudulent Banker.
Tho other evening a stylish and gen-
tlomanly looking individual stopped into ono of the leading restaurants in Paris, took his scat at a table and ordered
a dinner tros rochcrcho. When it was
served up, he tackled tho dishes with
the placid delight of a genuine epieuro.
Whon ho was half way through the dessert, a closed cab drew up at the door
of tho establishment, and a very grave
looking gentleman requested permission
to look through tho premises, as be expected to find thero n lradulent hanker,
whom ho ns a detective was instructed
to take into custody. Of oourso his demand was complied with, ami no sooner
had lie entered the dining room than he
pointed to tho luxurious reveler and
whispered in tlio landlord's ear:
"You see, our information was correct. Thero ho is. But for your own
suko wo prefer to avoid a row. Please
tell tho gentleman thnt his friend Baron
jL is outside und wishes tospuak to him
for half n minute."
Ou receiving tho message our gastronomist immediately roso from the table
aud went out on the boulevard, whore
ho wus taken possession of by tbe detective, who put him into tho cab and
drove off with him Next day the res*
tauraut keeper went to tho nearest police oiTico to recover payment for the
"fraudulent banker's" dinner, amounting to about GO francs. But neither tbe

show that as many die from fright and

Some strange things get into the sewers of London, nnd now and again babies have been found. Such are some
of tbe most important features of a section of tbe great machinery of tbe metropolis, which never rests, never sleeps.
Notwithstanding the room which exists
for further improvement In the disposal
of its sewage, the reduction which has
been brought about in the death rate of
London in modern times is as noteworthy as it is satisfactory. In the latter
half of the seventeenth century tbe average mortality of London is said to
havo been not less than 80 per 1,000,
at the end of the eighteenth century it
had dropped to 00 per 1,000, while in
1800 it bud fallen to 10.8 per 1,000.
Tho main intercepting and principal
branch sewers which have been constructed for tbe conveyance of the sow-
ago of London to tbe two outfalls into
tbe river Thames at Barking and Crossness respectively measure about 80 English miles. As illustrating tbe magnitude of London, it has been computed
that the streets and roads within tbe
metropolis, if placed end to end in ono
continuous line, would measure about
2,500 miles, equal to the distance from
London to Land's End, thence across
tho Atlantic ocean to the mouth of the
gulf of St. Lawrence in Canada on the
west, or going eastward would extend
across the entire continent of Europe

The Hauiage Machlue.
Tho Chicago girl had been unusually
manifest. Sho had told them all about
tho Auditorium—not mentioning its external dirtiness—and tho waterworks
building, which Oscar Wilde describes
as looking like a choice collection of
pepper pots, and sho had naively and
casually referred to ono World's fair.
When tho New York girl said something about a municipality npon the
island of Manhattan, tho Chicagoun assumed a blank expression and remarked: "Oh, yes, I remember; wo bad to'
pass through it on our way to Europo."
Then she began to boast of ono of Chicago's proudest works of art, not wholly
unknown to the others, ns, indeed, what
is thero belonging to Chicngo tbat is
permitted to remain unknown? It was a
sansngo machine of somo sort, nnd it
wns remarkable forits celerity. "Why,
yon put tho live pig iu at tho top,''
bragged the Chicago girl, "and in less
than ten minutes tho loveliest link sausages that you ever saw como dropping
out below."
Even tho placid sonl of tho Philadelphia maiden was stirred at this. "Indeed," sho said calmly, "Well, onr
qniot Quaker City methods go nhead of
thnt. Wo hnvo a machine in Philadelphia whero you pnt tho loveliest link
sausagos that yon over snw in at tbe top,

Tile newsgatheror on his daily searuh
for Items of interest often comes across
happenings of more than passing note.
It was during u recent conversation
with Mr. A. H. Crausby, the well-
known commorcial traveler, with the
(loohrun Lumber Company, that a reporter of the Commercial learned of a
wonderful mine. Mr. Oranaby is well
known iu Memphis and surrounding
country, nud now residos at I.IN Kerr
"JnBt ton years ago," said he, "my
wife noticed a small lump In hor
breast. She thought nothing of it, but
it increased iu size rapidly, aud soon
broke through tbo skin, aud commenced to discharge. She was put
under treatment of the best physicians,
but tbey very soon found that they
could do her no good, and simply prescribed antiseptics to keep the placo
clean. Both her grandmother aud
annt, by the way, had died with cancer, and when apprised of this fact,
the doctors told me that thoy would
not attempt to save her; that she was
inenrable. Although the cancer had
by this time beconio deep seated, and
hor health very low, I had one of the
moat noted specialists of Now York to
treat her. After treating her awhile,
this doctor admitted that the case was
hopeless and further treatment useless.
It is difficult to imagine how despondent we all became, knowing that she
must die, and unablo to givo her any
relief. I had spent over five hundred
dollars with the best medical skill to
be had, and felt that there was no further hope.
"One day I happened to read nn advertisement of 8. 8. S., rceommending
this remedy for cancer, and In view of
tho failure of the moat eminent physicians in the country I confess I had lit'
tie faith left in any human agency.
However, I purchased a bottlo of 8. 8.
8., and tn my delight it seemed to lien
ofit her; after she had taken a couple
of bottles, tbe cancer began to heal,
and as astonishing as it may seem a
few bottles more cured her entirely.
You can probably better understand
how remarkable this cure was when 1
explain that the cancer had eaten two
holes in the breast two inches deep.
These healed op entirely and although
ten years have elapsod, not a sign of
tho disease has ever returned and we
are assured of the permanence of tbe
euro, whioh we at first doubted.
"1 certainly regard 8. 8. 8. as the
most wonderful remedy in the world,
and it is truly a (Jod-sond to those
afflicted with this terrible disease. Yes,
sir," he conoludcd, "you may bo sure
that 1 shall always be grateful to that
remedy, for without it my homo would
now be desolate and my children
motherloss."— Memphis, Tenn., Commercial.

The Age uf Animals.
A butterfly lives only a few weeks, a
crow may live more than n century, and
swans are said to live sometimes over
800 years. An eminent naturalist tells
of a falcon that was 162 yoars old. A
white headed vulture, caught in 1700,
died in 1826 in the aviary of the palace
of Schonbrunn. neur Vienna, where it
had been in captivity 118 years.
Again, parrots and ravens think nothing of tumbling about tho world for
a hundred years or more, and some of
the sea birds and water fowl outlive
several generations of human beings. To
come down to some well known birds,
the ordinary cock lives from 20 to 25
years, aud a pigeon lives for about 10.
A nightingale may live 10 yenrs in captivity and a thrush 15, but when free
tbey live much longer.
Of quadrupeds the elephant lives much
longer than any of his friends and brethren. He may reach the ago of 400 years.
And, you will think, he looks as if he
was made to last a long time. A camel
Is old at 40, a horse or a bull ut 25, a
lion and a bear at 20. As for tbe whale,
it disports itself iu tbe sea for some 300
years, and no tortoise is considered to
have attained a ripe old ago before it
reaches 00 years.—Exchange.
A Young Violinist.
Miss Leonora Jackson, the young girl
whose beautiful playing on the violin
has attracted much attention of late, is
a Chicago girl whose talent must some
day make her renowned. During ber recent sojourn of 10 days in her native
city she so captivated the select audiences before which she appeared that
some of Chicago's most influential society leaders have become interested in
her. A brilliant future is predicted for
this little artist by all who have had un
opportunity to judge of her gifts. She is
still a child, with unassuming, childlike
ways. Her health is perfect, and with
her rare talent she combines a strong
character—energy, patience and determination.—Chicago Post.

Here is the latest episode of Parisian
life. Tbo cold weather of Into hus been
rather severe on the simian population
of tbo gay capital, and It wns keenly
felt by Maurice, tbo ornng-outung of
the Jurdlun d'Acclimntation. Wben
Maurice fell ill, It was decided by the
mnnngers of theJardin that inasmuch
as Maurice possessed far more resemblance to a mun than to nn nuiimil, a
regular doctor should bo summoned
and accordingly the services of a physician were invoked. On his arrival how-
over, tho doctor declared thnt, as the
patient occupied an intermediary place
between tbo qundrumsnes nnd tho humane*, its treatment should devolve
npon a veterinary surgeon, who. bow-
ever, hesitated to assume the responsibility on the ground tbat Man-
rico was moro human than beast.
While tbo discussion was in progress
between the two medicos the monkey
died.—Boston Herald.

A lottor recently published In tlio
pltawn l.'iiizi'ii by Joseph Martin,
iM. P, for Winnipeg, puis tlm Manitoba school legislation of 1800 In
a very different light from that in
which it in generally viewed hy the
people, of this Province. Mr. Mar-
Iin was Premier Green way's first
Attorney-General, and it was he
who drafted tlie now famous school
legislation, of which he was nlso
credited with being the prime mover, and much censured accordingly
by (he weak Opposition for his
"godless" schools. His utterances
upon tlie subject may therefore be
taken to be authoritative, and it
iviil no doubt lie n surprise to
many, as it has been to this writer,
lo leiim that tho legislation of 181)0
did not provide for non-Bectarion
schools, but for Protestant schools,
and those not acceptable to the
wholo Protestant body. It will he
even more surprising to learn that
at the time of introducing the legislation Mr. Martin considered it unjust to the Roman Catholics, and
indeed savoring of "rank tyranny."
Tlie Attorney-General, it appears,
favored purely secular schools, but
seems to have been overruled by
his colleagues, and rather than
surrender his portfolio, consented
lo introduce legislation that he esteemed unjust to a large minority
of the population. This is certainly not very creditable to Mr. Jos.
Tbe letter referred to was a response to certain views published
in a previous number of the Citizen
and said to lie held, by Col. Ouimet
representing Catholic sentiment.
Mr. Martin, after quoting these
views, proceeds as follows:
"There has been all along a
serious misunderstanding between
tbe Roman Catholic church and
■Ihe people of Manitoba if the above
is an accurate statement of the
position of the church.
"I suppose, however, that we
must take for granted that Col.
Ouimet Is in a position to formulate tlie wishfis of Roman CatholicB
in connection with this question.
If so then I may say at once that
there is no need of any remedial
legislation in order to bring about
such a state of affairs, i believe
I bat the people of Manitoba would
be willing to give to the Roman
Catholics all that is asked for,
Everybody wishes that a solution
of the question may be found without any coercion on the part of the
Jioniinion parliament and if the
demands of the minority are correctly expressed by the minister, I
:im very much at sea in my acquaintance with the views of the
Manitoba people if they will not
bring about of their own accord all
that is asked.
"When I introduced the school
bill of 1890,1 pointed out that in
fo far an it provided for religious
exercises in tlie schools it was in
my opinion, defective. I am one
of those who deny the right of the
state to interfere in any respect, in
matters of religion. 1 said then,
nnd I still think that the clause of
llm 1800 act, which provides for
certain religious exercises is most
unjust to lloman Catholics. If the
state is to recognize religion in its
school legislation^ such a recognition as is acceptable to Protestants
•inly, and, in fact, only to a majority of Protestants, is to my
mind rank tyranny. The desire of
those with whom I think in this
matter is to eliminate every question of a religious nature from the
school laws and to make the schools
jiurcly secular.
"This lias not been done in
Manitoba and that course is apparently not supported by a majority of Ihe people there. That
being so, surely it will be admitted
that the nature of religious exercises
or religious teaching (I am unable
to make any clear distinction between the two) shoubd be such as
i.- agreeable to the consciences of
those  whoso  money is  taken to
support the schools.
"i havo sufficient faith in tho
liberality of Manitoba peoplo to
declare on thoir behalf that if a
final settlement of tliis question
can be reached upon /he lines suggested hy Col. Ouimet, they will
do their'part. What Manitoba
has insisted upon is that tbe lloman Catholics shall not have a
system of separate schools such us
existed prior to 1800. whioh were
exempt from tlie several laws as
to ellicienoy. If tbe Roman
Catholics are willing ti) accept the
schools as they exist at present,
and as tbey may from time to time
be modified wilh the the addition of
such religious toaohingas {.hoy may
desire, then there would bo no difficulty in reaching a settlement of
ibe whole question without any
leglslnti in the part of tlie Dominion parliament."
PnoFEsson Huxley, tho greatest
biologist of 11)0 century, died peacefully at his home In England u few
days ago. The dead scientist will
be mourned all over tlie world, and
tho force of his mind will bo a power while civilization lasts. lie was
great in science, great jn contriver-
:y, a master In everything he
touched, and lie had the art, possessed in like degree by none of his
scientific contpmporarlos. of being
ablo lo write on abstruse subjects
wilh a chiinu of style and a clearness of expression absolutely de-
ligblful to his lay readers. The
wide acceptance of the theories of
tlie late Mr. Darwin was due tp a
very large extent to Ihe advocacy
of Prof. Iluxlev.
Tiik Victoria Times professes to
believe that that country is the
most prosperous against whioh the
balance of trade is largest. That,
for Instance, a country that buys
i million dollars worth pi goods
and sells five dollars worth, is in a
better way than (lie country that
buys five dollars' worth and sells
a million dollars' worth. Anyone
that thinks different tlm Times sets
down as a, ''preposterous/' "old
fashioned economist.'' For twenty
years the editor of this paper lias
been wrestling with the idea of
prosperity contended for by the
Times without being able to discover any truth in it. If it is
true, then the fact of so much butter, eggs, hay, potatoes, etc., being
shipped into IS. C. and so littlo of
anything shipped out, would be
positive evidence of prosperity, and
the larger the imports the richer
our people would become. Under
the theory, Ihe efforts that are
being made to encourage the production in the Province of the sup-
plios needed by the Province is
mere "old fashioned" economy, and
should cease in deference to the
newer economy of supplying all
our needs by foreign purchase and
getting prosperous by virtue of the
balance of trade against us 111
Neither is the Times happy in
taking England as an example of
a country constantly growing richer under an adverse balance of
trade. A. retired man pf wealth
may be absolutely wasteful in his
expenditure, and still be well with
in his income. England is in that
position, and though a loser in
trade relations with other countries
may still, and no doubt does, grow
richer by reason of the huge income
received from all civilized nations
on account of loans and other investments not reckoned in the trade
Again, the argument from the
profit realized by the British mer
chant who traded a cargo of hardware at New Orleans for a cargo of
cotton, is a fallacy. Of course,
the cost of carriage both ways by
a British ship increased to that ex
tent Britain's wealth. As to the
exchange of goods, Ihe merchant
at New Orleans probably gained as
much as his British confrere, and
in both cases the profit necessarily
came from the consumers of the
goods. Jf the cargoes were ex-
changed at just values there could
be no profit in the simple transaction, but presumably the merchants, acting as middlemen, ar
ranged the trade to profit them
selves, and this profit was paid to
the British merchant by the British
public and to the New Orleans man
by the American public. Neither
nation was richer or poorer. It
was a simple case of taking money
out of one pocket and putting it in
the other. The nation can only
gain in trade by having more value
to export than she needs to import.
Tliis may be "old fashioned" economy—indeed it undoubtedly is, for
(here is reason to believe that the
ancient Egyptians had an idea that
a man who consumed more than he
produced could not get rich on
those lines.
Ottawa, July 2.—All Ibe British
Columbia members were present
yesterday al the unveiling ceremony of ilie.Macilonald monument.
The statute was unveiled by the
Premier, and speeches were made
by Sir Adolphe Caron, Lieut. Governor Kirkpatrick, of Ontario,
Llput. Governor Daly, of Nova
Scotia, and Lieut. Govornor llmv-
htnd, of Prince Edward Island.
Tho following is from tho Columbian and as the item referred to also
appeared in SurbeV Timks, it is
only just that wo should likewise
publish the correction : "Mr. Tims.
Morrison writes from Langley with
roferonco to the Horn which appeared in these columns on tho
]()th inst., regarding tho alleged
"mysterious disappearance" of a
loam loft in his charge by John
Montgomery, whon Messrs. Morrison and Montgomery came to tho
city on the 18th inst. Mr. Morrison writes that tbe I cum was bis
own, and, consequently, he had
the right to do with it as he pleased.
What induced Montgomery to report to the police that the team
was his, is bard to Imagine Mr.
.Morrison is justly annoyed over
the affair."
Toronto, June 28.—A London

Blake's subscription of £1,000 to

jund the action is favorably com-
■ inented on by the Irish press.
Stabbing Affray in Vancouver.
From Woiliusdiiy's Nows-A'lvortlsor.
Frank .Sutherland and David
McDonald, both well-connected
young men residing in Westminster, camo over lo Vancouver last
Monday to take In Ihe eelebralMn,
and now tho fii'St-ninned is lying
in a precarious condition at his
home in Westminster with four
knife wounds in the leg and two in
the back, while his companion lies
at tbe point of death in the St.
Paul's hospital wounded twice in
tlie back, one of the stabs having
penetrated a lung.    An absolutely
Identic recital of the facts leading to thp tragedy could not be obtained, but as is by no means uncommon in affairs of this nature, it
is pretty certain there werp women
in it.
The two young men were, in fact
accompanied by one or mare disciples of the demi-monde and in the
course of their nocturnal rambles
they reached the savory npighbor-
hood of Columbia avenue, and
there encountered a third male
party, whose identity is doubtful.
The entire party had been drinking
not wisely but too well, and the
conversation ranging from grave to
gay, from lively to severe, culminated in an affray in which the
third male party woundpd both
young men in thp manner previously stated.
Both afterwards managed to
reach the Boulder saloon, while one
of the women ran towards Abbott
street, hailed a hack, and the
woundpd men wpre subsequently
conveyed to the office of Dr. Langis
who dressed the wounds. It waB
then found that McDonald's condition wus serious in the pxtreme,
while Sutherland, though badly
hurt, was in a fit condition to be
conveyed to Westminster in a hack
early yesterday morning.
Officers Butler and McLpan were
the first to learn of the affray,
somewhere between 2 and 3 o'clock
yesterday morning. Officer Butler made a thorough investigation,
which resulted in his ascertaining
the circumstances above narrated.
Some time before, about mid-night,
he noticed a woman running in
the direction pf Abbott street; saw
hpr hail the hack and then return
in the direction of the Boulder. He
also traced bloodstains from the
latter to the scene of the affray,
where he found a dollar and 15
cents in silver on the ground, also
a cuff and collar button and a hat
on the other side of a fence on a
vacant lot. He identified the
hackman and learned from him
that one of the men had been taken
to the hospital and that the other
had been conveyed to Westminster
accompanied by the lady in question. The evident intention of all
the parties implicated was to keep
the matter as quiet as possible,
Bince no information whatever was
given to the police.
However, with the foregoing data to work on—the wounded man
denying all knowledge of his assailant—the acting Chief set to
work, with the result that at 7 p.
m. yesterday a rather tough char-
actor known as George Green was
"annexed " on a warrant by acting
Chief Johnston and Officer Purday
in the Glasgow Hotel. The Chief
was not prepared to state fully the
grounds for this arrest, but it is
understood that he can produce a
witness whose statement will make
a strong case against the prisoner.
A probable and charitable assumption is that tlie assailant—whether
Green or some other person—was
trying conclusions with McDonald
and Sutherland and used a knife
in self-defence.
McDonald is a nephew of McRae,
a tailor in New Westminster, and
Sutherland was at one time Captain of the tug Brunette.
l.oclislov II. Lucas, of Ladners,
well known to many people here,
wus arrested at Westminster on
Saturday last, on the strength of a
warrant charging bim with obtaining money under false pretenses.
Thp charge is that he gave aoheque
for *i2fi on the Bunk of British Columbia, in which lie had niiaceount
anj no funds, to Mr. Atilay Morrison. The chargo if, laid under
that section of the Criminal Code
which gives a remedy against a
person who obtains valuable security under false pretences. Mr. Atkinson, Police Magistrate, fixed
bail at $2,01X1, of which $1,000 is
personal, and two sureties of $r,(M)
each. On Wednesday, Lucas was
oojnmittefl for trial.
Edward Bilield died at Comox,
Saturday night, in convulsions,
the supposed result of a tight with
A. .1. Lepla. On Tuesday, tho two
men, who hud been drinking iu
the 101k Hotel, hud a fight upstairs,
They were parted, and Bilield
was locked in a separate room.
Whether as a result of tho lig|it
with Lepla, or from some other
cause, Iiifield was taken with convulsions and fell or jumped out of
tho window of the room. He wus
picked ttii and put to bed, but
never rallied, and died Saturday
night. Chief of Police Hutchison
immediately arrested Lepla, pending the result of the inquest.
London, July 1.—Professor Huxley is dead. The end was very
peaceful and quiet, being perfectly
in keeping with the retirement
which he had sought when he took
up his residence near Eastbourn.
His failing health became noticc-
able about March 1st, Bronchitis
followed an attack of influenza.
The lungs and kidneys were then
affected, He rallied several times,
but sustained a severe rplapse, and
since that time there has been no
hope for permanent improvement.
His wife and daughter were present at his deathbed, but his son
arrived too late. During his
dying moments Professor Huxley
displayed great fortitude and resignation.
Washington, July 3—The United States Consul at Santiago de
Cuba reports cholera on the increase
there. He says it is impossible to
give the number of cases, owing to
thp fact that physicians in private
practice do not report cases. He
says nineteen deaths occurred in
the city from this cause during the
week ending July 22nd.
