Wife Number   Two.
Old Col. Poterficld was a hard roan. He
Worked his wife—a good, patient woman—to
death upon his plantation. On her deathbed,
when too late, his eyes were opened to the
great wrong he had done, and he begged her
forgiveness. "It ii easy enough for me to
forgive," she gasped, "but my forgiveness
will not cause coming punishment to be lessened, I feci that you are going to be punished on this earlh," Am! she turned her
face away f.om him anil died,
The Colonel's season of grief was riot long.
He soon put on his beat clothes and showed
himself at different plaoes of amusement, His
friends were shocked, but said nothing. Soon
there came into the neighborhood a graceful
woman, named Antoinette Pohvorth. The
Colonel met her and was charmed. He called
on her. She received him kindly, and eventually they were married, Six months of
almast unbroken happiness flew away, but
now the Colonel's face sometimes wore an
anxious appearance, His wife was no' so
fair as she had been, anil the Colonel had discovered that the waving hair which he had so
much admired was sometime at night hung
on a corner of the mantelpiece. He found,
also, that he had been deceived in other way-?,
and Ihe spirit of revenge arose in his injured
breast.
"Antoinette," the Colonel one day remarked, In a voice that had lost much of its
wonted gentleness, "Caroline Is ill to-day,
and I want you to go out and weave jeans.
I get a good price for the stuff, and I cannot
bear to see the loom standing idle."
"Well, then, don't look at it," Antoinette
carelessly answered.
The Colonel nibbled his lip and said,
"Woman I want no foolishness,"
"Don't have it, then," she responded.
"I won't. Go out there and weave, or
you'll feel the ungentle force of retributive
authority."
Antoinette laughed. The Colonel took
hold of her nose and gave it a turn as though
he would unscrew it. Antoinette put aside a
stocking she had been darning, knocked the
Colonel down with a lightning-like slap, put
one foot under him, threw him across the
room, sat down and resumed her peaceful .occupation. After a while the Colonel sat up
and gazed at her in astonishment.
"Antoinette," he said feebly.
"What my dear?'-' she answered.
"Vou needn't weave," he said.
"Thank you, my dear."
"You have convinced me that a woman
should havs some rights. Bli't say, how did
you do it? Where did you acquire the facts
which you have just embodied into such an
unanswerable argument?"
"Colonel, pardon me for not telling you
sooner. For many years I was the cannon-
ball woman and the iron-jawed woman in the
circus. Don't get excited, dear. I shall not
give you another exhibition until you attempt
to get a divorce from me. Then I will take
' you up in my teeth and shake you."
The Colonel went out, leaned on the horseblock and groaned. His first wife's prediction was vcrefied.
A TRAIN BURNED.
An Eastern Bound Express Consumed by
Flro.
A telegram was received in Victoria
on Friday night conveying the startling
imformation that a train on the Canadian Pacific Railway—believed to be
the first or second eastern bound express—was caught in a bush fire a short
distance on this side of Donald, and entirely consumed. All the passengers
escaped and the mails were saved. In
the absence of particulars, it is surmised
that the train in passing a bush fire became derailed in consequence of the
iron spreading, and thus unable to
move backward or forward, the cars took
fire and were burned. The loss will be
a heavy one to the company, as the
train was composed of elegant sleepers
and first-class cars.— Victoria Times.
In the year 1843 a small boy with tow
, hair, a bright eye ami a confidential manner,
, applied for employment at the office ofa tele-
.graph company  In   I'litsburg.    He had be--.
j sides a broad Scotch brogue,    He was only
I 13, and small even for that age, but he had
I already worked in a cotton mill and "fired
j an engine in a dirty  cJiar."    His canny
Scotch face pleased the manager, and he was
taken on as a messenger at $2 50 a week.
Thc boy's name was Andrew Carnegie. The
I snobs and the nobs and the titled people who
I are proud to be acquaintances of the once
I small boy pronounce  the name Car-nay-jie,
acqent on the '•nay."
The tow-headed boy of 184S is now the
millionaire manufacturer ,,f Pittsburg ami
New York, the most extensive producer of
steel rails, pig iron and coke in the world.
1'esides being a millionaire he is a philanthropist and brilliant author, His book on
America, "Triumphant Democracy," has attracted much attention 011 both side's of the
ocean. A man with a broad, level head like
that can do anything.
The boy Andrew In time became a telegraph operator, and he was a number one,
too. Whatever he went at he worked as
hard as he oiulrt at It, and devoted his leisure
time to learning something else. His eye
saw into things quickly, and he made some
valuable telegraphic suggestions to the company. Pefore long he was made division
superintendent of thc Pennsylvania Railroad.
Besides being shrewd ami energetic, he had
been economical, too, and saved his earnings.
He invested them in Pennsylvania oil lands,
which became immensely productive. Then
he engaged in iron manufacture, and the
Scotch hoy was a millionaire.
Tlest of all he Is as wisely benevolent as he
is rich. He gives away every year seven or
eight times as much money as he spends.
Hundreds of charitable and educational insti"
tutions have received his flowing gifts.
His latest plan is in connection with John
Jarrett to form a gigantic co-operative organization, in which workingmen alone shall be
stockholders. First a co-operative bank and
store will be started in Pittsburg. Next the
organization will feel its way to the establish
ment of great workshops and factories. The
ohject is to unite the interests of capital and
labor upon thc only basis where they can
meet in co-operation.
Woman's Best Friend,
A great deal of talk has been occasioned by
the mention of the fact that the President
always used new money. Some people laughed
at the idea that he handed a crisp new $100
bill to Dr. Sunderland for his marriage fee;
and, again, that he put a crisp new $5 bill in
thc collection plate at the Oakland church.
People said, "Why, the President must have
money made especially for him." Thc truth
is, the President always receives new notes
direct from the Treasury. He never gets old
notes, except in change when he pays a bill or
makes a purchase. The United States Treasurer, on the last day of each month, sends
the President his salary—$4,166 66—the odd
change in bright new silver and copper cents,
and the notes all new and of the latest issue.
Mr. Cleveland, like his predesessors, keeps a
private bank account with Riggs & Co., and
the day after he gets his salary he makes a deposit, reserving enough to pay current expenses. It is said that his account has showi.
as large a balance as $35,000, as he has an
income besides his official salary, llcfore he
entered public life he made from $10,000 to
$15,009 a year by his practice, and his ex-
pe ~es were not more than $2,500. He has
saved much of his first year's salary, but now
that he is married his expensess will increase.

Ex-Marshal Eazaine, "the Man of Met z,"
is now 75 years old, white-haired, bloated
and decrepit. H> never grows weary of
cursing Marshal MacMahon, and throwing
upon that gallant soldier the blame for all the
reverses of the "terrible year." His wife is
now in Mexico, trying to rake together some
remains of his former property there.
A clergyman, probably a retired missionary,
announces that cannibals will not touch the
flesh of a man who is addicted to the use of
tobacco. This will be decidedly comforting
to users of the weed, who, it maybe taken for
granted, have the usual prejudice against
being served up as an article of diet. As the
clergyman in question is a violent anti-tobacconist, it would seem that he escaped for some
other reason,
A hair-pin is a woman's best friend
say the Buffalo Commercial. It fits a
multiplicity of uses and she is never
without one. If her hair is short you
can depend upon it that in a recess of
her. purse or a pocket of her reticule you
will find the hair-pin, It1 she buttons
her shoes she use? her hair-pin, and
who ever saw a woman button her gloves
with anything else? If her head itches
does she scratch it with her finger?
Nonsense. She whips out her hairpin and relieves herself. Suppose a
nickle has dropped between the bars
of the wooden foot grate in
the street car. Does she soil
her fingers as a man would, and
then not get it? Certainly not. Out
comes the hair-pin, and the coin is lifted
out without trouble, If her shawl pin is lost,
where Is so good a substitute as the hairpin ?
If she eats a nut does she use a nut-pick ?
most assuredly not, The hair-pin again. It
is with the hair-pin that she rips open the uncut leaves of a book or magazine; it is a hairpin with which with which she marks her
progress in her favorite book; if her trunk
key is missing a hair-pin opens the refractory
lock as neatly as a burglar's skeleton key
would; with it she cleanses her finger nails
and, if it is a clean one, even picks her teeth.
Benefit of Sea-Bathing.
The Budget of the Indian Empire
shows a deficit of $1,700,000. The
protectorate of Afghaniston, the subjugation of Burmah, the increase of the
army in India by 10,000, nnd the costly camp of exercise at which all the
spare troops of India were gathered and
put through a sham battle in the presence of delegates from all the European powers and the native princes,
easily account for the extra expenditure.
Burmah is probably a good paying in •
vestment. We doubt whether as much
can be said of Afghanistan, which has
to be subsidized. A surplus is expected this year of nearly a million, The
Indian Empire is such a fine market
for England's manufactures that it pays
well to administer to it. India's deficits are small compared with Russia's
deficits; the last one announced was
that of 1884—the books are not balanced for later years yet. It was over
$200,000,000. The total liabilities
of India amount to $260,000,000,
against which there are assets of $208,-
000,000. About $200,000,000 of this
amount is in railway and public works
such as irrigation canals and tanks, and
it yields a return of over 5 per cent,
annually.
Halifax is to be made the greatest
naval station in the world, and the defences of British Columbia are to be
greatly improved, partly at the expense
of Canada and partly at the expense of
the Mother Country. Australia is also
strengthening herself upon her borders.
The Australians, by the way, have
a very respectable navy. At the present moment they are considering, upon
the invitation of the Imperial Government, the advisibility of uniting in the
establishment of a federal navy, supported by Great Britain and her dependencies. The Premiers of the
various colonies will meet and discuss
the matter with admiral Tyron shortly.
The Cape is also asked to join, and
Canada may probably be invited to
express an opinion upon the subject.
This would appear to be the first practical movement in the direction of Imperial Federation.
Thirty thousand people went lately to witness the performance of the immense bull circus at Nimes in the Department of Gard,
France. Thc electric lights went out soon
after the performance began, and owing to
defective apparatus could not be re-lit. The
people became enraged, tore down the fittings
of the circus and made a bonfire of them and
the furniture in the arena. Troops restored
order after a desperate conflict,
Most people who enjoy comparatively good
health ape benefitted by sea-bathing. For
delicate constitutions and for many of the
complaints of debility sea-bathing is a power,
ful tonic. It is medicinal for many individuals. The precaution of the sea temperature is an important or e for a safe beginning.
The wai|ermust be warp enough. A etiief
source of benefit of sea dr river bathing is,
indeed, the coolness of the temperature and
the consequent healthv glow of warmth caused
by the rushing of blood to the skin on leaving
the water. But all this is too active treatment for the invalid at the beginning. One
must be educated up to the Herance of the
cold bath. For bathing a calm, warm, sunny
day should be chosen; a windy day should be
particularly avoided, for the evaporation from
the clothes and body is then so rapid as to
chill the body oi) entering and leaving the
water, The best time of day is two or three
hours after eating, and preferable in the forenoon,
THE ELECTIONS IN ENGLAND.
NEW ADVERTISEMENTS
JOSEPH M. BROWN,
WATCHMAKER,
London, July 10.—The Right Hon.
George Otto Trevelyan, who, with
Chamberlain, resigned from the Cabinet
to oppose Gladstone's Irish policy, has
been defeated as a Unionist candidate
in Hawyek for Parliament, In the last
election Trevelyan was returned as a
Liberal from Hawick without opposition. This year John Dillon stumped
the district against him, denouncing
him for his opposition to the Premier's
policy towards Ireland, and pointing
out the unreasonableness of Trevelyan's
attitude, in view of the fact that he had
been Chief Secretary for Ireland, and
by actual observation knew the merits
of the issue. The result has been that
out of 5,016 votes polled at Hawick,
Brown, the Gladstone candidate, received a majority of thirty. The announcement of the result has produeed
a sensation throughout the country.
The Liberals are now predicting that
Hartington will also be defeated by the
Gladstonian candidate in Rosendale.
The Lancashire election takes place
next Monday. At the last election
Hartington was returned as a Liberal
by a majority of 1832, in a total poll
of 10,288.
Hartington's opposition to the Government's Irish policy induced the
Liberals to ask Michael Davitt to contest Rosendale. Davitt hesitated, and
finally declined, assuming that Lord
Hartin/ton's attitude was purely patriotic and disinterested. At the last
moment they determined to contest the
district.
The net Unionist gain is up to six
o'clock to-night, 17; 288 Tories, 61
Unionists, 145 Liberals, and 72 Par-
nellits had been elected.

If a farmer wishes to educate his boys that
they may become good and contented followers of his own calling, his first step should be
to educate himrelf. In order that he may

for farm-work.
A Connecticut peddler who had been selling clocks "like hot cakes" in Kentucky,
thc terms being $2 down and the buyers own

of business was to be explained by the fact
that the pi.rchasers thought they were each

WESTWARD HO!
WEDNESDAY July 14, 1886.
At the Rink.
We cannot be held responsible for
the ignorance, the prejudice, and the
mercenary motives of about half our
population. It is a fact beyond dispute, that a very large number of our
people look upon the possession of a
vote as they would upon a lottery
ticket, or a parcel of merchandise to
be traded off for coin, or some commodity having a tangible value. In
the recent election some novel transactions took place in voting. It must be
gratifying to his friends to know that
Dunsmuir's support came principally
from his own class, although not exactly the sort of people that confer respectability on a community. Having
conducted the campaign on our own
part without committees, canvassing,
or any of the orthodox resources of
politicians not knowing even now who
voted for us, or why they did so, we
look upon the 200 votes given us as a
distinct protest against the prevailing
low tone of politics in this country.
We regard that vote as a high compliment, and in thanking the unknown
contingent for their confidence we feel
more than ever convinced that there
exists in this community a substantial
element, that could easily be converted
into a majority whose opinions can not
be purchased, and whose aspirations
soar beyond the horizon of a beer barrel, or the narrow confines of a government office.
The most bare-faced corruption aud
bribery was practiced by old Dunsmuir and his agents during the last few
days of the campaign; but when we
have finished with him, he may have
reason to wish he had left his fate to
the judgement of an untampered
electorate.
The Wellington mines are yielding
at the present time coal that is very
unfair to what was produced a few
years ago. In a few years they will be
exhausted, and it is to be hoped that
the owners will then betake themselves
out of the district. When money is
advanced upon mining property, the
security is based on the productive
capacity of the mine. In the case of
the Wellington mine any appeal made
by the owners for advances by the
government to save Dunsmuir from
ruin secured by liens upon that mine,
or upon the Island Railway should be
flatly refused, because the security is
unreliable and is gradually decreasing
in value. We draw attention to this
point because it is quite palpable that
Dunsmuir intends to make another
haul upon the provincial treasury.
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher's Opinion ol
Gladstone.
Rev. Henry Ward lieecher was interviewed
last evening after the great Liberal mass meeting at Liverpool, and was asked what he
thought of Mr. Gladstone's speech. He said:
"Mr. Gladstone's speech was luminous and
powerful. It delighted me. I told Mr. Gladstone I was too much overcome to express
my appreciation of his speech, and that it had
given me a "greater insight into Irish affairs
than I ever had before." Mr, Gladstone said
in reply: "I take that as a compliment, for you
ore as capeble to judge as anybody."
The hair is a conductor of electricity to the
brain, and it never should be less than two
inches in length. Unless the facts are taught
in the schools so that the boys are warned,
in a few generations more we shall have a
general softening of the brain among our
masculine population.
None are truly happy but those who are
busy; for real happiness lies only in useful
work of some kind, either of the hand or
head, so long as over exertion of either is
avoided. It should be the aim of every one
to be employed. If all men and women were
kept in some useful employment, there would
be less sorrow and wickedness lu the world.
One more unfortunate,
Trusting the fates,
Rashly importunate,
Tried on the skates.
Pick her up tenderly,
Loosen the straps,
Fashioned so slenderly,
Unused to mishaps.
Oh, it was pitiful
That she should flop
Where a whole city full
Must see her drop-.
Pick her up tenderly,
Smooth out her dress,
Fashioned so slenderly,
Made to caress.
Out she struck trustfullv,
Skating galore,
Down she came bustfully
On the hard floor.
Pick her up tenderly,
So good and so true,
Fashioned so slenderly,
What could she do?
Bumping inhumanly,
Jolting the men,
She is pure womanly,
And tries it again.
Pick her up tenderly,
What docs she care?
Fashioned so benderly,
So pljhmp and so fair.!

A Cowboy Evangelist.
"Lampasas Jake," the cowboy evangelist,
who is holding revivals in New Mexico, can
beat Sam Jones as a vernacular preacher.
Here is an extract from one of his sermons:
"How many of you's ready to die now with
your boots on? Where'd you be to breakfast? Don't any of you drunken, swearing,
fighting, blaspheming, gambling, thieving,
tin horn, coffin paint, exterminating galoots
look at me ugly, because I know ye, I've
been through the drive, You're all in your
sins. You know a fat, well-fed, well-cared for,
thoroughly branded steer when you see one,
and you can tell whose it Is and where it belongs. There's a man that owns it, There's
a place for It to go, There's a law to protect It, Hut the maver|ck—who's is that?
You're all mavericks and worse, The maverick has no brand on him, He goes bellering
about until somebody takes him in and clasps
the branding iron on him. But you whelps,
you've got the devil's brand on you. You've
got his lariat about you. He lets you have
rope now, but he'll haul you in when he wants
firewood."—N. Y, Tribune.

Free Access to Windsor,
Art and fashion are involved with each
other now as never before. Not only do the
designers of elaborate toilets reasonably claim
to exercise artistic taste, for much originality
and beauty are often put into the work, but
genuine painters arc employed to decorate
dresses. Usage in the most pretentious New-
York circles authorizes thc wearing of exceedingly fine gowns at diriners, add the apparel
at the best balls hardly shows such unique
garments as are seen in dining-rooms on occasions of fashionable mating and drinking.
The aim is to wear si.1. .hing unlike any
body else's garb, and to effect this the silk or
satin of a dress is often painted by hand in
water-colours or oil. An artist acquaintance
of mine, whose works on canvas have trc-
qnently been good enough to be admitted to
the Academy of Design, was bewailing the
fact that American buyers prefer foreign or
native pictures, irrespective of merits.
"When a man has to go painting live
women instead of his own creations," he bitterly growled, "I think it is time for him to
throw down the brush and take up a shovel."
He explained thai he had taken several
commissions' to decorate women's dresses as a
means of subsistence, and that he was retained by a leading dressmaker for that sort
of work. But hi declared that he would
never again do what he did in one instance,
which was to use his brush on fabric ihat at
the time inclosed the owner. The belle had
insisted that the figures painted on the waist
of her dress, though they looked well in themselves, were not shaded so as to be effective
when she had it on. Therefore she wished
the artist to come to hsr house and touch up
his work while It was on her person. That
he regarded as humiliating, He could paint
a gown in his studio, but professional pride
forbade him to apply his brush to the person
of the patron,-^New York Letter.
I happened to visit Windsor the other day
when the Queen was holding an "investiture.
Several matters struck me with surprise. For
one thing, the remarkable freedom accorded
to the public of entry to the castle and its
appurtenances. All the open spaces within
the precincts, except the quadrangle itself
and the private garden, seemed to be free to
everybody. The Windsor children use as a
playground thc grassy slope in front of St.
George's chapel and the region about the
Windsor end of the Long Walk. There is not
a gentleman's scat in the kingdom where very
much greater seclusion is not maintained.
There are hlenty of sentries, but they do not
interest themselves in the people who lounge
about their beats. Here and there, at long
Intervals, is a benevolent-looking policeman
in uuiform, whose leading function seems to
be to gossip with anyone who will gossip with
him. With some practice in that sort of introspection, I could not spot a single detective in plain clothes.—London World.
Lately there died in an obscure part of St.
Louis a man with a most remarkable history.
This was James L. Birkey, who committed
suicide by taking a large dose of carbolic acid,
and thus at the age of 73 terminated a life
which at one time was full of promise. He
died in an almost penniless condition and unattended by any relative, although at one time
he was one of the wealthiest men in Ohio, a
large stockholder and director of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and thc owner of
thc huge coal fields in the south-cast portion
of Missouri.
Thc Lord Mayor of London entertained the
Prince ofWalesanda number of distinguished
colonists at the Mansion House last night.
The Prince of Wales made a speech, in which
he said that no occasion had given him
greater pleasure than did the present one.
The Colonial Exhibition would mark an epoch
in the Queen's reign. The greatest pride of
his life was to knit together in the bonds of
friendship the colonies and England. He
hoped to form a permanent colonial museum
in London. He declared that all had one
great desire at heart, namely, to preserve the
unity and strength of the Empire, (Cheers,)
Gen. Middleton responded to the toast "Canadian Militia," and the Marquis of Lome to
that of "The Colonial Empire."
As a matter of good taste the publishing of
a long list of wedding presents is question
able, but the list recently published in a coun
try paper is, in some sense, interesting, in
cludidg as it did: From father and mother of
the bride, one Jersey calfj. from bride to
groom, hair wreath made from hair of her
entire fomily, and also six fine shirts; from
brother Elias, one book of puems, one Dream
Book,  one  "Polite Letter Writer," and a
dog; from Aunt Harriet,  six hens and a
rooster,  also one jar tomato eatsup; from
cousin Sarah, one poem made up by herself,
on bride and groom, fifteen verses in all.'"—

It is stated that in consequence of
Fenian threats Joseph Chamberlain has
had his residence placed under guard
of detectives, and that he has detectives
armed with revolvers, accompanying
him on all his journeys between hiss

Sir John did a fine stroke of business
on Thursday by laying the corner stone
ofa Methodist Church, attending a
Masonic pic-nic, and making a speech

brief afternoon. He maybe old, but
he is spry, thank you, tolerably spry,
and deucedly sly.

Up to this time he has devoted all his

glad to see him try it on the rest of the

Hard Words—to Pronounce.
A Welsh poet has written some verses
on the Nicolini-Patli wedding. Here
is an extract: "Llanwcr wynwes hen
gwoniawe a cherddoral dan." These
be hard words, but they may be deserved, considering the way Patti and
Nicolini have been "carrying on" for
some years. Patti is no "chicken," and
it is rather ungallant to call her a
"wynwes hen."
An Irish journalist, mourning his
wife, tearfully exclaimed: "Faith, an'
she was a good woman; she always hit
me wid the soft end 0' the mop"
To reverse the saw: As the nights
begin to lengthen the heat begins to
strengthen; but the coal heap does not
look so small.

There was not enough Jameson in

The ship Nancy Pendleton has nearly

The recent rains have polluted the

dysentry is becoming common.
Fruit promises to be plentiful, but
probably the flavour will lose something

An amusing argument took place the
other evening on the side-walk as to
who was the prettiest man, Bates or
Harvey. It was finally decided that
Homer of Westminster was handsomer
than either.
Nanaimo wants a furniture store, a
lawyer, a livery stable, a foundry, a
grist-mill, another Mayor, a resident
Judge, a branch bank, a free hospital,
a few more men like the superintendents
of the Vancouver and East Wellington
collieries, and no more of the unprincipled classes such as have controlled
the affairs of the city and district up to
the present time,
STILL ANOTHER STEAL.
The desperate efforts put forth by
Dunsmuir & Co. to crush this paper,
whilst futile, indicates that another
steal is on foot. ,
The unusually wet spring and early
summer that we have just left behind
us, has been of great service to the
farmers of Vancouver island, whose
lands are generally light and porous,
but the crops on the low flat lands ' of
the Fraser Valley must have suffered
from excess of moisture. Cattle here
at Nanaimo are in fine condition.
The Hon. Thomas White, Minister
of the Interior, is in Victoria. We are
greatly mistaken if the servile element
of that notorious town succeed in pulling the wool over his eyes. Should he
visit Nanaimo, not as the guest of th
•:ity but as a private citizen, he will receive a kindly and honest welcome.
Otherwise he may not find much enthusiasm.

the prisoner to one month's hard labor.
