Mas, Pa. Wilson and Mrs. Harris, of Vancouver, who hnvo been
spending a few weeks with Mr.
John Wilson, of Langley, brother
of MrB. Harris, drove down to
Cloverdnle on Wednesday to visit
Mrs. Galbraith an old-time neighbor. Tlie ladies were curious to
see a cream separator in operation,
nnd were escorted tn the adjoining
dniry of Messrs. Lyte A Whittnker,
where Mr. Lyte, with his customary
kindness, set tlie machine agoing,
and generally made tilings pleasant
for his visitors, who came away
greatly pleased.
A Qi'iKT wedding took place at
Holy Trinity Cathedral, New
Westminster on Tuesday morning,
at 11 o'clock, when the rector,
ltev. A. Shildrick, joined in holy
matrimony Mr. W. J. Moggridge,
of liclle Meade Farm, Hall's I'rairie,
and Miss Madeline Alexander, of
England, sister of Mrs. C. I). Moggridge. Only a few, including Mr.
and Mrs. C. D, Moggridge, witnessed the wedding, and there was no
bridesmaid or groomsman, After
tlio ceremony, the party brenkfast-
cd at the Hotel Gulchon, und the
happy couple left by the afternoon
train for Harrison Hot Springs,
where the honeymoon will be spent.
Surrey Times had n cull on
Wednesday from Mr. .1. T. Wilkinson, better known, perhaps, as the
"World Man on' the Wing," who
has been mnking the round of Surrey in the interest of the journal
he represents. Ilo is a most affable
quill-driver, arid after having hnd
experience of his genial und insinuating munnors, we do not wonder
at his success as a canvasser or the
esteem in which his services are
held by the World management
Along with his journalistic connection. Mr. Wilkinson is nn enthusiastic stock breeder, a trait in
which he follows his father; who is
one of the host known stockmen in
Eastern Canada, and noted for his
sheep and pigs. Lust year the
Berkshire herd of the elder Wilkinson won np loss than 95 first
prizes. J. T. Wilkinson was the
pioneer importer of thoroughbred
stock in Chilliwack, whero his home
is, and fornuiny yours he won every
prize hp competed for with his
Southdown sheep. This yenr he
made a fresh importation of Southdown sheep und Berkshire swine,
nnd in the latter it is probable lie
will make neighbor Shannon, of
Surrey, look after his laurels
at the exhibitions this fall.
Mr. Wilkinson also owns u number of standard bred trotting horses
of high merit.
We published last week the
times and places at which the
Travelling Dairy would be exhibited in Westminster District. According to that announcement,
which wns the same ns in the city
papers, Surrey Centre would be
visited on the 10th, 17th, nnd 18th
of September. Since then posters
have been received from the B. C.
Agricultural Association announcing that Prof. Robertson will accompany the Dairy to Victoria,
where it will be operated at the exhibition from Sept. 17th to 21st.
This, of course, conflicts with the
Surrey Centre appointment. The
Secretary of the Surrey Agricultural Society is endeavoring to ar-
range for the dairy to be u feature
of the Exhibition here on Sept.
The Idea ? *of Seneca G.
Ketchum I It is n decidedly bright
Idea, and is published weekly in
Vancouver. Two or three numbers
have reached our table and entire-
fill the idea of piquant and witty
presentation of things of interest to
everybody. We remember Seneca
when he was a very small "gaffer,"
though even at that early age the
orginator of a joke that became
school property, though the boys
didn't imngine then tliat the precocious humorist would develope into one of the cleverest of Canadian
journalistic wits, The title of "The
Idea ?" contains asuggestivequery,
but Seneca's friends need feel no
uneasiness. Long may he and his
Idea flourish.
Cloverdale is hemmed around
by grnin fields, nnd the harvesting
of them hns made a busy scene
the past ten days. All last week
the "click" of the binder kept
telling of a bountiful harvest, mude
more manifest by tlie wide arrny
of golden sheaves in stook. This
week, from our office door, could
be seen a half-dozen wagons busy
hauling the seasoned product of
the fields to cover in the barns,
The bulk is snfely gathered, but
Messrs. Lyte & Wnlttaker, who
fnrm over n hundred ncrcs, have
still a considerable quantity out,
Mr, Sam, Shannon left on our
table on Monday, a phenomenal
twig of delicious plums. The twig
was ten inches long, and was so
clustered about with fruit that no
part of the wood could be seen
The cluster weighed three pounds,
nnd wus of the green gage variety,
the best of all plums. The fruit
came from the orchard of Mr. Thos.
Shannon, adjoining Cloverdale.
Sohool Inspector Burns is on

Rev. Mu. Best, of Westminster,
who exchanged pulpits with Rev.
Mr. Bowell on Sunday last, had
good attendances nt tho Severn 1
stations of Tinehead Clayton, nnd
Cloverdnle, and, as usual, his sermons were much appreciated.

Major Hornby, of Nicomekl, hus
commenced the erection of u large
and commodious residence on his
property south of the Nicomekl
river. The lumber and other building material arrived some dnys
ngo, having been towed up the
river on scows to the railway crossing. The Major intends to enlarge
his hop yard, and will also devote
a considerable area to the culture
of small fruit.
Mr. Daxikl Johnston, of Mud
Bay, is nn. experienced cheese
maker, and also one of Surrey's
most progressive farmers. In talking over dniry matters Inst week,
he expressed his belief that something must be done this winter to
establish in Surrey either a creamery or cheese factory to opernte
next summer. "We must keep up
lo the times," he says, "und there
is no reason why an institution of
that kind could not be successfully
financed in Surrey."
About this time of yenr a good
many sports come over from ncross
the boundury to fish for trout in
the Nicomekl. Somo of them use
the legitimate appliances of the
angler, and are no doubt welcome
visitors to all who love the rod.
Others nro credited with using
dynamite and many other unlawful means to kill the fish, which
they take for market purposes, nnd
of these an effort should be made
to muke a few wholesome examples.

a drawback, Tlie way the Langley

a shame, The mail we should get

whereas if the mail service was
conducted right we would get it on
Saturday. All the other newspapers suffer the same unnecessary
delay, und there is not much satisfaction in our people taking papers
because the news is old before we

even more aggravating.

an Irishwoman named Mary MrMuhon
wus brought to tlie police court charged
with keeping whisky on promises which
wero unlicensed. Sergeant Jones deposed that ho went into tlio defendant's
house ami found a woman named Gray-

Upon searching her tho sergeant came
upon 00 bottles of porter and two bottles

of the spectators tho sergeant produced
the peccant garments in court. Each
petticoat was mado of courso sucking

He, however, who would fain find
amusing stories about running the blockade and smuggling contraband of war
through an enemy's lines may turn with
advantage to many transatlantic magazines which teem with urticles revealing
the illicit trade carried on during the
American civil war. Ladies of tho Belle
Boyd and Mra. Greenhow type were
caught trying to make their way down
south with countless boxes of copper
caps and packages of quinine stitched
into their crinolines. Captain Roberts,
better known under his mil name, Ho-
bart Pasha, tells us that he smuggled
great quantities of Cockle's pills into So-
cessia, but that the southerners, differing in taste from the lamented Colonel
Fred Burnaby, would have none of them.
A certain young lady, who appeared
to bo in delicate health, took ship at New
York for Havana, whence she hoped to
run the blockade into Mobile. Overpowered by seasickness during the voyage, she could not prevent tho stewardess from discovering that she was girt
round about with linen bandages, among
which many costly drugs were stowed.
Such is the complexion to which modern

She Fed the Dog.
An awfully swagger girl came into an
np town drug store the other day. She
led a tiny pug by a slender silver chain.
Her hut wus all a-bloom with purple
flowers, nnd un Alsatian bow of purple
ribbon was tied about puggie's neck so
big as to give tho impression that there
was more how than dog.
Miludy seated herself on a stool in
front of the soda fountain and tenderly
lifted his small canineship to another
seat beside her. The order was given
for chocolate ice cream soda. When it
wns served, this rather remarkable
young woman conveyed a tenspoonful of
the cream lirst to her own lips and then
to puggie's. This process was repeated
until not a drop wus left.
It developed during this interesting
episode thut the dog's name was Nig,
and to see Nig blink his eyes and lick
his small chops was very funny indeed.
"Ugh!" exclaimed a matter of fact
woman looking on. "How thut girl can
put thut spoon buck in her mouth after
thut dog hus licked it passes my comprehension. I think it is perfectly disgusting."
Dut Nig only blinked the moro knowingly, doubtless thanking the good Lord
thut all women were not made alike,—

Viva el ndelnntot" The shout of
welcome homage echoed through the
city of Santiago do Cuba (since known
aa Havana) when on tho last Saturday
in May, 1!>!18, tho gallant Hernando de
Solo landed with his princely retinuo.
threat preparations had been made by
the loyal inhabitants for nn imposing
reception, and the streets wore filled
with a curious crowd eager to behold
their new ruler. At length the discharge
of ordnance announced that tho procession had left tho waterside, nor was it
long beforo tho numerous retinue defiled
before tho applauding Cubans.
A band of pikemen led tho way, wearing iron corselets and bearing long pikes
with steel heads glittering in tho sun.
They wero followed by a band of archers with well filled quivers, and then
came a small band of the newly organized halberdiers, equipped in casque aud
plate armor. The trumpeters came next,
wearing their gorgeous state uniforms
and blowing fanfares upon their clarions, which were ornamented with silken
bannerols. After the trumpeters came
an esquire, bearing a banner on which
was embroidered De Soto's arms nnd
attended by 12 yeomen carrying maces.
And now loud shouts announced the advent of the "ndelanto."
Tho conqueror of Peru was then in the
prime of lifo und rodo with chivalrous
bearing upon the richly caparisoned
charger just presented to him. Ho woro
a full suit of polished steel armor richly
inlaid with gold, while about his neck
wus tho gorgeous collar of the order
of tho Golden Fleece, a gift from his
monarch. By his side mounted on an
ambling mule was Donna Isabella, his
noble bride, nnd following them came a
train of esqnires, pages r.ud men at arms
wearing the armorial bearing of the
"adelanto." A long column of knights
followed, their polished armor flashing
in the sunlight, their pennons ana
plumes floating in the air, and their An-
ualusiun chargers curveting along as if
panting for the contest. Never had such
a gallant body been seen in Santiago as
this brilliant retinue which escorted
Hernando do Soto to the cathedral,
whero a high mass was to be offered up
for their safe arrival from old Spain.
"Holy mother, but it is a glorious
sight." exclaimed a young girl, who had
stood in a large window in the Calle de
Ignacio, gazing through the ornamented
iron work at the glittering host as it defiled past. Nor could she but feel flattered at tho homage paid her by the
chevaliers as they passed—many of them
reining in their steeds to gaze at her
charms. Nor was this to be wondered
at, for her beauty was of that old Anda-
lusiun stamp, in which not even the gentleness of tlio fairer sex can quito conceal tho latent fire of the soul. Masses
of raven hair lay lightly upon her brow,
liko untwisted silk upon white velvet,
and were gathered together by a large
comb, which also secured a rich lace veil.
Her languid eyes were black as jet, her
lips poutlngly invited kisses, and in her
rounded chin was a dimple wherein
Cupid could havo rested with delight.
Her flexible form moved to and fro as if
swayed by tho south wind's breath,
whilo n tiny foot occasionally peeped
from beneath tho amplo skirts of her
white muslin robe, beating time to the

Vusco. Then, entering the court, he
soon occupied a place in the window.
Wo havo said that he had seen much
service and that his hair was turning
gray, yet he had not seen BO harvest
iu< ons, nor was thore a more graceful
cavalier at the ndelanto's balls.   Tall,
compactly built, with un electric black
eye and u winning smile, he was the
envy of many younger hidalgos, while
his broad acres made lilra the more attractive to matchmaking donnas. As
honorable us he was honest, and as faithful as he was brave, his dying comrade,
Don Autonio Gonzales, hud felt great
joy when he entrusted his daughter into
the bonds of so true a gentleman. And
Don Vasco, regarding the last wish of
his friend as a solemn duty, hud ever
used every exertion to rear tlio Donna
Inez us ho would havo brought up his
iwn daughter.
"And do yon not liko it?" inquired the
damsel us her guardian stepped upon the
window platform. "Do you not Iikothis
flashing armor, these spirited horses,
theso waving banners, theso bright suits

liko it. I should think that the echoing
rotes of these trumpets would make
your blood surge through your veins like
a maelstrom,"
"Yes, indeed. 1 havo decided to join
this expedition if De Soto will accept my
poor sword."
"What!" exclaimed Donna Inez, with
a look of uneasiness, "you go to the wars
againl Oh, for the sake of the Blessed
Virgin do not go,"
"Nay, nay, my fair ward, were you
not just admiring the scene?"
"Aye, but this is not the picture presented at the close of a hard fought battle, when brave knights lie suffering in
agony or die in despuir." Then after a
short pause and an evident struggle in
order to keep from bursting into tears
she added, "It was thero my father
breathed his last."
I    "True, but this expedition is not similar to a European campaign.   These hidalgos go in quest of adventure. I admit,
; bnt they expect to find great wealth and
I littlo if any opposition."
I    "But is tho gold there, guardian? Will
it not be like Ponco de Leon's voyage in
quest of the 'Fountain of Youth?*"
J    "I should like to find that fountain."
I    "And what good would it do you?"
asked Inez, the color mounting to her
■ "Ah," replied the knight, with a deep
sigh, "it might not avail me aught.
Seriously, though, my fair ward, I feel
I that honor calls mo to join tho expedi-
I tion. Tho lady ot tlio bravo De Soto
will remain here, and I feel confident
that she will far eclipso my poor services. So I now kiss your hand, aa I
must make tho necessary arrangements
for tho management of my estates during my absence, and should I fall, Inez,
remember that everything I possess will
be your dower.   Adios."
"My dower," exclaimed Inez, turning
from the window and speaking hurriedly to herself. "I shall be a bride of the
church, then, or earth will have no object that I can love." When she reached
her chamber, she bolted the door; then,
throwing herself upon her couch, wept
long and bitterly.
i For several weeks the city of Santiago
was a scene of jubilee. In the daytime
the cavaliers indulged in that national yet cruel amusement—bullfighting.
Mounted on tho choicest steeds and clad
in brilliant armor, tho gallant knights
contested for prizes of gold or for choice
embroidery presented by the fair ones,
whoso bright eyes graced their lists. At
night there were balls and masquerades,
where tho future invaders of Florida
mingled in the mazes of the dance.
De Soto, while he encouraged their diversions, which served to train his yonng
cavaliers in the use of arms and horsemanship, was not a participant in the
sports.   Anxiously awaiting the return
of a pilot whom he had sent to discover
a safo harbor for disembarkation, he oc- i
cupied himself in perfecting every ar-
rangoment, nor had he a more efficient
ally than Don   Vasco, whose martial j
spirit appeared rekindled with fiery zeal.
Equipping a well armed retinue of men I
from the vicinity of hia estate, be soon
had them the pride of the whole expedi-.
tion.   The excellence of their armature
and equipments, tho superiority of breed
and good grooming of their horses, and
tho confidence which they evidently possessed in their veteran leader, showed
that every battle must find them victori- j
ous or slain.
Bnt, to the great Borrow of Don Vasco
Donna Inez was never on the plaza to <
witness his troops at their daily guard
mounting, their floating plumes, polish-'
ed armor and glossy chargers now extending into line, then at the sound of
the trumpet closing into square.   Their i
pennon wns a scurf worked by the fair
lady for her guardian, but she had retired to a convent  in pursuance, she
said, of a vow.   Nay, she even refused to
see Don Vasco when the expedition was j
ready to sail, although she sent through '
her confessor a most pathetic entreaty.
This conduct, considering that she was
in truth the cause of her guardian's return to military life, was rather saddening, but he consoled himself with the
thought that perhaps ehe was praying
fur bis safety. I
The fact was, Don Vasco had fallen
desperately in love with his ward, although ho dared not urge his suit, lest
she should think that ho hud attempted
to take advantage of his position, and
her high spirit should rebel. She per-1
sisted in refusing to seo him, but on the
eve of his departure his page brought in
a package, "from the Donna Inez."
Tearing it open, the delighted cavalier
found a silken pennon, on which was
elaborately embroidered his armorial
bearings, with the Italian motto, "Che
sara, Bara," which may be interpreted,
"Whatever will be, will be." I

Florida! It was on the lost day of,
May, 1530, that De Soto and his chivalrio
band landed at what is now called Turn-1
pa bay and hoisted tho Spanish flag as
they took possession of the country in
the name of Charles V. Tho scene was
one of surpassing loveliness. A luxurious muss of laurels covered tho ground
beyond the narrow sandy beach, while
beyond them towered the mastliko palm,
the stately live oak and the gorgeous
magnolia. A long distance from the sea
groves of lemon and orange trees gavo to
the landscape the appearance of a flowery wilderness, here and there divided
by quiet lagoons, Huge vines clambered
from tree to tree, und a profusion of wild. I Jf PROVING THE OLD,
flowers bloomed on every hand. j  ^_	
But the aboriginal inhabitants of this
terrestial paradiso wero not disposed to
yield it without a struggle, and at length
a horde of them with deafening yells set
upon a party of Spaniards. The Euro*
peuns, unused to such warfure, retreated
to the boats, whero Don Vasco had just
landed. Hastily forming a section of his
horsemen, he boldly attacked tho Indians and soon drove them into the interior, shouting as he urgod on his charger, "Che sara, sara!" When the enemy
was routed, he returned to tho boats jubilant over his buccobs, but ero ho dismounted his steed staggered, then fell
dead. An arrow had passed through tho
saddle and buried itself deeply in tho
animal, inflicting a mortal wound,
"Never mind," exclaimed the don, "I
have been the first to raise the lance
against the infidels and have lost the first
horse.   'Che sara, saral'"
On reviewing his troops that afternoon Don Vasco was somewhat annoyed
to find that one of his most trusty men
at arms had brought a stripling sou to
share the perils of the expedition.
"May it please your grace," said the
man, "I wish to train him to the pursuit
of arms."
"But what can his slight arm do?"
angrily inquired the cavalier.
"Littlo now, I admit. But he knows

When official supervision Is efficient, it fs

Arsenic m ■ Cholera Hemedy.
Few subjects are Attracting more genera)

Arena Dr. It. B. Leach suggests a novel

virtues of arsenic taken In the form of
pills or hypodermically not as a cure, but
as a preventive. He regards Its use as a
guard ngniust cholera ns of equal value
with the use of vaccine matter as a preventive of smallpox.   He Argues:
"By taking arsenic we nre actually occupying the space And place demanded by the
cholera germ In which to fructify nnd de

vantage ground upon which to plant Hi
guns for cramping the adversary. Under

a song.   \
There next sounded some loud laughter,
a step ou tbe tiled path of tbe inn, then the
ainger spoke.
"I drink your health, my charmer," he
aald, "lu tho Rlvlngton brew." After tbat
he spoke lower, but the words reached She-
lab's ears:
"Vou got my note, Jenny, but you never
enme.   Why wns that?"
"I was afraidl And, oh, what wonld
fat in r say if he knew that you sent me that
note witb all those—those"— The musical
voice ended suddenly.
"Kisses, Jenny*" finished the horseman.
"Well, I don't know. I don't particularly
care. I.ovc Is altogether reckless. And for
you, my gypsy, I would risk anything
Now tell me, Jenny, when can you meet
me alone? It is a small favor for a lover to
ask.   Wben shall It be?"
Jenny was silent
"Jenny," said the rider seriously, "do you
lovo me?"
Holding bis breath, Shelah waited for the
answer.   It was inaudible.
"Come a littlo closer, Jenny," said the
horseman guyly; "kisses on paper are uotb
ing to kisses in"	
"Hush!" cried Jenny; "some one .scorning!"
lt was Sbelah. He rounded the corner In
tlmetoseoMr, Cyril Rlvingtonridlngaway.
With his head bowed, Shelah crossed the
threshold of thu Inn door. He was met Inside by a pretty, brown cheeked girl, whose
fuco hnd u heightened and rather unusual
bloom. At sight of Shelah she looked disconcerted.
"Jen, lass," ho said, "I want to apeak to
you.   I want to ask you aomethln."
"Well, theu," said Jenny, "Bay it quick.
What Is it?"
"It's this," said Shelah, and hi* voice
shook a little. "We ha' been sweetheartln
for n loug time, and I wnnt to know when
we are going to get married, Jen?"
"Never," sho said softly.
"Never?" ho repeated huskily.
"I should only make you wretched. 1
want you to give me up—to forget me, Sbelah."
"Give you up, Jen! Give you up, missl
Give up my life-ask me for that, Jen, but
don't ask me to give you up, sweetheart,
for I do bo love you, my dear,"
Jenny's lips quivered, and htr eye* began
to fill with tears, but she kept her face tc
tho window.
"It would break my heart to marry you,"
she said, "for I love some one else."
"You love some one else?" said Sbelah
"Yes, anil be Is going lo many me. So,
you see, Shelab, it would be wrong for me
to marry you. 1 should be always miserable, and wretched, and 1 should make you
miserable and wretched, too, so please, dear
Shelah, let me go and—and forget me."
White and still sat Shelah; then heavily
and wearily he rose. Jenny uncovered hor
face for a moment. At the sight of his she
hid il again.
"Forget yon, lass," he aald, "I nevei
can." Moved perhaps by the thought of
what might huve been, be leaned down
nnd gently pressed bis lips to her forehead.
"Hut if giving you up, hiss," he proceeded huskily, "will make you happy, why
Jen"—there was nn agonising ring in his
voico—"why, I give you up."
When she looked around again, he wns
All tbat night ft froze bard, nnd the calm
sea lay moaning like a dog on Its chain.
Shelah heard it ns he stood in the lonely
sentry box of the lifeboat lookout.
Ah usual Shelah culled nt the "Ship" for
Tom Reeks Ho had barely entered when
he beard u horse's hoofs on the bard rond.
A horseman reined up at thu Inn, and Shelab drew back into tho shadow.
"Shelah!" It was Jenny who spoke. Sbe
stood, white nud trembling, on the cellar
Steps.   "Will—will you take him this?"
.Strangely fascinated at being called upon
for such nn act, Shelah took from bur the
measure of sparkling ale,and like a man In
a dream carried it to tbu door. With his
bead down be walked up to tbe rider.
A loud "Ham!" caused him to start nnd
lookup. Instead of the youngbrewer.be
was facing tbe old one.
"No, my man," hu wild, "I don't care for
Anything uh curly as this. If you'll have
the goodness to bold my horse while I dismount-I want to see the landlord. Is be
illylllgton, Sr.. was a pleasant, chatty
old gentleman, nnd be soon disclosed the
object of his visit. A ball was going to be
held at Hcrrlngbotirne town hall, and be
wasdistrlbuting invitations to such of his
tenants as choose to attend. Ah he was
passing--quite by accident, he assured
them—ho felt be ought not to miss the
landlord of tho "Ship." There were the
tickets, and he hoped that Reeks and hla
daughter would attend.
"I forgot to mention," he said blandly,
as Reeks, after expressing his thanks, took
them up, "that this ball is to be held in
honor of my son Cyril's marriage. He ia
to be married this week to tbe daughter of
a very old friend of mine—a man of Kent."
Aa bo finished, a low sobbing cry startled
all but Shelab. A beer warmer had rattled to the floor, and Jenny stood vacantly
staring intoa littlelakeof tbespllledliquid
at her feet
"Why, what's the matter, lass?" said
Reeks, "you look as white as a ghost."
"Nothing, father," she answered faintly,
"nothing only the heat of the fire."
Sbelah Baxter came out of the "Ship"
and walked aimlessly down to hla boat.
The surf was boiling on the Scroby, and
great rollers with foaming crests were racing in and tumbling upon the sunlighted
He stood awhile Absently watching the
little fountains which their recoil left bubbling in the sand, then mounted the tall
hillock to look for Reeks. On the top he
started, and his tan cheeks grew pale.
At the base of the mound by a dwarf
clump of furze sat a girl sobbing violently.
She waa Jenny Reeks. He descended the
side she was on and gently touched her
Through her tear brimmed eyes sbe looked
tnto bia face. Not a word of reproach.
Only in bis eyes was the lovo tbat had been
ao constant and true.
With a little catching of her breath, Jenny rose and drew back. Theu, with a convulsive cry, she flung ber arms wildly
around his neck, and there sbe aobbeu until sbe could sob no more. When tbey went
back to tbe "Ship," Reeks met them at the
door Something in their attitude made
him softly whistle. It seemed as if Shelab
bad taken bis advice and plucked up at
last.—Chambers' Journal.
Cured by at Diet ot lleana.
Charley Haywood, the welt known commercial traveler, tells the following story
of hia remarkable cure without medicine:
He had been very ill for several weeks,
and the attending physicians gave up all
hope of hia recovery, the symptoms being
more and more unpromising dny by day.
The Information waa imparted to hia wife
that Charley waa past all remedial aid, but
the plucky little lady would bear none of
It and gave them to understand tbat if
their scientific skill had been exhausted she
Intended to try the magnetic powers of an
old fellow who lives in the western part of
this city. He had performed many remarkable cures after regular physicians had
failed, and although bearing the sobriquet
of the "dirty doctor" he waa sent for, and
without making any examination of the
patient inquired about the diet already prescribed, and also asked whether hla food
waa digested with comfort when eaten.
"No," said Charley, "the doctor won't
let me have what I want, and the stuff I
havo l>een forced to eat doea me no good."
This was apparent aa he waa reduced to a
perfect skeleton. "What do you want to
eat," asked hia new physician.
"Means, nothing but beans," waa the reply.
"You can have all yon want," aald the
doctor, and aoine baked beans were ordered
Tbe effect was magical. Tbe nervous system tbat hud been wrought up to such a
disordered condition rapidly changed in
character, and After a few days' diet on
beans alone Charley waa convalescent, despite the diagnosis of the learned sesculft-
plnns, nnd Charley Is today one of tbe
brightest and most active men In the city.

Not long since tbo mnnngor of a thriving lifo insuranco company satnt his desk
chatting with a Now York Herald reporter. In tbo middle of a discussion two
cards woro brought In. Tho caller ut onco
rune to go.    Tho ofllchil said:
"No. Sit down. I want you to stay for
a partloulur reason. I don't think you
hnvo evor hoard of solar biology,"
Aftor chatting a few minutes with
them, showing nn equally hopeful affability to both, tbo manager snid, tapping tho
papers ho bad tnkon 'from them: "Ob, by
tbo wny, whon wero you born? I mean,
how old are you? Glvo mo tbo date Wa
keep records, you know."
Thoy gnvo dates about six months apart
in tbe Hame year, Ho jotted them down
cnrofully, tbon snid, rising to bow thorn
out: "Coma hack tomorrow. I will buvo
luokcd you up fully by then nnd can glvu
you n definite answer."
When thoy woro out of hearing, ho suld:
''No doubt you think I mn going to rend
thu letters thoy huvo left with mo. So I
shall—after awhile—by way of finding out
how fur either of thom bus shown to those
ubout him his real nature"
"How will you discover thnt?"
By way of answer ho took u big bonk
out of a convenient drawer, run his eye
ovor Home tables In tbo bank of It, muttering to himself faintly as ho did so, then
drow out some letter sheets, printod ovor
witb queer marks and queerer symbols,
wrote hurriedly upon thorn, tbon leaned
hack In his chair, saying as ho sob hla Angers tip to tip:
'I'm sorry for thnt Pennsylvania lad,
I nm, truly. Ho wants tho placo badly,
but It would bo doing him an unkinduess
to glvo lt to him."
"How about tho Maine manf"
He laughed outright. "I wnnt him,"
ho said laconically. "Further, I would
glvo him tho placo If I had novor heard of
anybody that know him."
"Tho other Impressed mo a ahado tho
moro favorably," said the reporter.
"Please explain to mo what lt la thut gives
you hh different o view of him."
'-He la tho brighter of tbo two, not a
doubt of that," tho manager said, bending again ovor his book.   "For another
man's business—any a broker's, a publisher's, any place indeed that required only
faithful effort on bis own part—he would
do bettor than my mnn. Ho waa born
March 15, 1860. That puts bim In Pisces.
In solar biology Pisces, the feet of tho
grand man, stands metaphorically far tho
understanding. So far, bo good. Under-
standing is nil very well. But tho Pisces
man In shrinking. Ho does not want to
go at other people about anything, least
of all thoir own personal concerns. Ho
has good executive ability, but wholly
within hla own sphere. Mara in Pisces,
tho birth sign, doubloa tho potency of thu
earth. It weakens tho domestic Impulse
till lt Is almost nil. Naturally, tbon, n
man without a care for homo will not
succeed In Impressing others how vory
necessary It Is tbat they mako the provision for It, whioh la the basilar principle of
life Insurance.
''Now, hero Is my led from Maine, born
July 28, 1800. Tho earth tbon was In tha
homo sign, Loo, tho moon In Aries, which
turns all the thought ond Intelligence
mill moro In tbe domestic channels. Then
ho has Uronua in Capricorn, pre-eminently tbe sign of business, with both Jupiter
and Mercury In Scorpio, which Is tho firo
sign, tho place of potential energy. Thnt
gives bim enormous will force. Nobody
can stand upngnlnBt him who is not something In the same signs. He lovea home
and humanity, too, for horo la Venus, In
.Aquarius, exactly opposite the earth. Mars
In Taurus re-enforces still more tho dominant good will toward hla kind, nnd Saturn in Gominl makes bim feel It a sort
of religion to aave them from blundering
waste. So you can see he Is not an ideal
person, but very nearly an Ideal insurance
man.   I rejoice to have found him."
'Lots of business men do ns I do—ask

courscof the trial of purantln Sim
Francisco; nnd in (his Province,
a yenr or so niio, the cost of the
trial of Stroebel amounted ton tnx
out of all proportion to tlie public
revenue,   '('his is not to say that
Ihe expense should not be incurred
if necessary to secure the conviction
pf the guilty, but it is to say that
there is something radically wrong
in the system which render*' such
heavy charges necessary.   A little
further development in the same
Jinp will muke the trial of criminals
an  unbearable  burden upon the
State, if indeed it 1ms not already
reached thnt stage.
The old saying Unit "it is better
j score of the guilty should escape
than one innocent person be pun

do witli the opportunities thnt nre
now offered to the guilty of escaping, anfjpf mnking the lnwrabiding

hig to  interfere with  the vicious.
No doubt thp old snying appeals to
the kind hpart, but it is none the
less in exact opposition U> the fundamental nnd constant purpose of
Criminal law, tlie  sole intent nf
jvliich is in protect f-ociety.   Leaving out thp promptings of benevolence, and viewing Ibe matter with
Judicial  coldness, the  punishment
of one innocent is of less conse-
rjuenca to  society (Jinn  the escape
of one guilty.   In tlie case of the
grosser crimes jt is immeasurably
go, for while the capital punishment of an innocent man would be
a   cause   of regret   only   to the
general public, the escape of a man
of crime would lie a   menace to
(hat spine public; ami moreover
(be new crime of tlie escaped criminal might readily enough result in
vastly more hardship to innocent
parties than could pertain in the
ease of l|ie well-intended but mis-
(ii ken legal punishment of the innocent person we are presuming.
While presenting this hard view
of the interest of society in regard
to crime, it is, of course, fur from
our intention of advocating that
zeal for )he conviction of the guilty
should be permitted to weaken the
proper safeguards of the innocent,
though things ns harsh are doubtless known Jo existing judicature.
Hut tlie Length to which the business is being carried in the other
found a lclter from Mr. It. A.
Hratlci'., of Langley Prairie, com-
plaining of the arrangement made
by the postal authorities for supplying that important settlement
with mail facilities. Mr. Jlrndeii
doos not say whether the other
postofheefl in southern Lunglcy nre
aifectod by the faulty arrangement,
ul. no doubt thoy nro to some extent at least. The oholoe of Friday

TlMKB whs decided upon entirely
with ii view to promptly reaching
Ihe more distant postoliiceB of Surrey and Langley, all of which, we
believe, receive mails on Saturday,
It is only very Inlely that we have
learned tluvt our mail for Langley
municipality, which leaves here
by Friday's train and arrives at
Fqrt Lapgloy on Saturday, remains
over there till tho following Tuesday. We havo tlio consolation of
knowing, however, that other weekly papers, though published on other days, havo to submit to the same
The position   is that   Langley
Prairie has three mails  a week,
Tuesday, Thursday nnd Saturday,
an arrangement that is perfectly
satisfactory to the people served.
The service is from Fort Langley,
which has a daily mail,   Now, the
Langley I'rairie mail is forwarded
at noon, whereas the dajly mail
does  not reach Fort  Langley till
evening, so that one day's mail for
thp southern offices is necessarily
held over.    M". llraden contends
that the Langley  Prairie carrier
shoujd be timed so ns to take with
him tliiv latest mail, and tlu) advantage is so manifest, that oue
can hardly account at iirst (or it
being overlooked in a service so
careful of public convenience
that of thp postal department. The
explanation probably is, that if the
dispatching of the Langley Prairie
curripr was dphiyed ti|l evening it
would not then be practicable to
reach the more distant postoflices
of the municipality that day,
Then is there any remedy for the
state of things complained of ?
Certainly therp is. The distunce
from thp distributing office of Fort
Langley to Langley Prairie is the
same as from thp latter to the distributing office of Cloverdale. The
Great Northern railway carries the
mail to Cloverdnle, and the train
is due daily at 10.30 a. m. Hence
Langley Prairie and subject offices
could hp served from here at the
same hour and at (he same charge
as nt present, will) (he very impor
tant difference that no Langley
mail would be held over at the
Cloverdale office. Another very
important consideration is that the
service to Langley Prairie from
here would lie available at all seasons, whilp the Fort Langley service is interfered with hy ice in
winter and high water in summer,
to the serious inconvenience of the
Langley public.

St. Jphn's Nfjd., Aug. 22.-:-The
expected stoppage of the railway
by French warships causes great
excitement here. It is felt ' that
tliis is a cruicial point where England must make a determined
stand against French aggression or
else sacrifice Newfoundland's prosperity which chiefly depends upon
the development of her interna} resources niade available by the
completion of the railroad. Premier Whiteway has startgd for
Bay of Islands, where trouble is
expected to arise. The British
gunboat Buzzard leaves to-morrow
to re-inforce the flagship Cleopatra,
now near the disputed coast. Considerable correspondence is taking
place between the local Ministry
and tlie Salisbury Government rer
lating to the matter. England's
course is watched wjth anxiety.

The rumor that he hud been closeted

untrue. He merely happened to

body proved to be that of C. Leg-
gatt, a Canadian Pacific Railway
bridge foreman, who was drowned
during the flood, a year ago lust
June, by the capsizing of a boat.
The hend and both arms were
gone, but several witnesses were
able to swear to the boots and
clothing lieing exactly the same as
worn by Leggatt when he was
drowned, and there is no reaBon to
doubt the identity of the body,
which had been under water for
fourteen months. A verdict of
accidental drowning was returned
by the jurv, when all the evidence

London, Aug. 22.—A statement
of the condition of Oscar Wilde's
finances has just been issued. It
shows his liabilities to he £3,591,
with no available assets. His insolvency is ascribed by him to the
failure of his action for libel
against the Marquis of Queensberry,
who is now a petitioning creditor,
seeking the payment of the costs of
his defence, which the court ordered Wilde to pay. Wilde's income
has averaged £2,000 a year, chiefly
derived from his literary and dramatic works. He has been insolvent two yeurs, his expenditures
having greatly exceeded his income,
