to have been disturbed   by the sound of
their  hammering  at niylii.     The place
most frequetjted by the dwarfs seems to
have been Co/.umel island, alow, Hat reef,
about twoiity four niilos ju length, off the
cast shore of Yuoatan.
On this island still exist the rulus of
pigmy cities of considerable importance,
with temples built of carefully hewn

feat long and nine feet high, and less a
doorway three feet high and eighteen
inches wide, and near by are weii constructed triumphal arches nine feet high,
(in tbe neighboring coast are still to be

According to the Indian guide who led
Dr. and Mrs. Lo Plongeon to tho ruins,
and who professed lo have seen the
dwarfs frequently, they are very small
and quilo shy, appearing oily at night,

SATURDAY.'. March 27, 1S86
Auorv the middle of November last
this newspaper was first published and
it appeared regularly until lately. It
was started because of the persistent
manner in which the Free Press of this
city had abused, misrepresented and
slandered the proprietor of Westward
Ho! and because the Government led
by Sir John A. Macdonald had not at
that time in the Province a single sincere supporter. The local politics of
tha Province were ignored by us because of the conviction that until an
entirely different distribution of seats
could be effected any attempt to legislate in a spirit of fairness would prove
futile. We have never altered our
opinions. The improved appearance
of our contemporary and the leading
article of to-day's Free Press are some
consolation to us. If our contemporary will only go a little further and tell
how Sir John opposed the Island Railway and how the British Columbia
delegation insisted on it he will have
made the amende honorable. On the
seventeenth of January last the plant
of this office was rented by W. B.
Macdougall who was to have continued
the publication on the same lines as at
first established. No one regrets more
than we do the moral depravity that
led that person to sink everything in
whiskey. At last he abandoned the
business and we have to confront loss,
shame and discredit in order to vindicate our character. Until we can repair the injury done this establishment
by the departure of the late publisher,
we will issue a weekly.
We are glad to learn that twenty-seven
Crown grants are on their way to settlers
on the Island Railway Reserve.
WESTWARD HO !      ! personal reminiscences of jumbo*
luerdotea of the Great Klephant Tuld by
Hla Keeper, Matthew Scott.
I well remember when it was announced
)ii<hteen years ago, that, an African
dephant, with immense ears like folding
jarlor doors, would soon arrive, and the
managers decided to put me in charge of
iiini. There was great excitement when
Che boat arrived from Paris, and it seemed
as if all the boys and girls in London
turned out to see him. The little elephant
was a curiosity on account of his peculiar
shape and big ears, and the members of
several learned societies came to examine
him. The name I gave him, Jumbo, had
no particular significance; in fact, I don't
think I had ever heard it.
From the natives where he was captured
it was learned that Jumbo was 5 years
of age, and I took delight in telling the
visitors that he would grow to be the
biggest elephant in the world. This I
judged from the peculiar size and proportions of his bones In relation to the body,
and I resolved soon after that I would
make a study of feeding him. He was
then sickly and in a bad state of health
generally. Jumbo and myself were fast
friends the first time we met and he
would be governed by none of the other
keepers. He was like a great good-natured
boy, and he took a special fancy to children
and ladies, and was never so happy as
when he could carry a back-load of little
ones around the park. His passengers
Included children of royalty aud nobility,
and as he grew rapidly, a larger saddle
was necessary every few months,
One day as Jumbo was passing through
a crowd he suddenly stopped and would
not move an inch when I commanded him
to proceed. From my seat in the saddle I
observed that a lady below was miich
agitated as she came running toward
Jumbo. Leaning over the side of the
saddle, 1 saw that a child of 3 or H years
had fallen In our pathway, and was lying
betweenJumbo'H fore-feel .The beast would
not stir until he had taken up the infant
tenderly In his trunk and passed It over
to the Biothat,
JCMBO GETTING LONESOME,
Six years ago Jumbo had turns of fret-
ulness which alarmed the directors, and
hey even went so far as to purchase
blunderbusses with which to shoot him If
lie became mad and unmanageable. 1
old them that elephants were social
animals, and that what ailed Jumbo was
the want of society with his own species.
As Mr. Barnum had a score or two of
elephants In his great American show,
Mr. A. U. Bartlett, superintendent of the
Zoological gardens, advised the sale of
Jumbo at a greatly reduced price, Mr.
Barnum offered $10,000, aud the directors
accepted it, on the condition that he
should take him as he stood, as they
would run no risks of removing him. The
bargain was made and it was one of the
happiest days of my life when I found
that I was to accompany my old friend
across the water.
When Jumbo had got to be a good-sized
boy another African elephant was brought
to the Zoological gardens, This was a
female, and we named her Alice. She Is
now there, and her age is 90 years, four
years less than Jumbo's age. She is of
the same build, and very affectionate, but
does not display the same affection for
children.
Jumbo and Alice always went out together, and whenever he was taken for a
promenade she was uneasy unless she
could go too. Her affection for me was
very marked, and when I return to England I expect to be greeted by her with
cordial demonstrations of elephant pleasure. She was growing fast when I left
her, and she has six or seven years to grow
yet. The children call her now, as then,
Jumbo's wife.
Jumbo was unlike any other elephant
In Mr. Barnum's great herd. It would
never do to punish him or to force him to
obey. Mr. Arstingstall holds sway over
nearly fifty great animals (any one of
which might pick him up and hurl him as
a boy would a rat) solely because they
fear htm. Not so with Jumbo, He
minded me because he loved me. Many
years ago it was that he began to show his
affection for me, and he uevcr betrayed
the confidence I placed In hliu. Whenever 1 could make my wishes known to
lim, he always obeyed. Like a child, he
would sometimes be peevish and sullen,
but at such times ^« would solicit me to
pet him, and if I remained near, he would
soon get over his ill-feeling,
JUMBO'S SOCIAL TRAITS.
We have traveled many thousands of
miles together in the magnificent car
built expressly for our use. My sleeping
apartment was at one end of the car, ami
my bed was near Jumbo. Unless I waa
in it he would not go (to sleep, no matter
what hour of the night It might be. Sometimes I would take a short walk around
the city after the exhibition was over for
the day, and before the cars started.
Jumbo was. always awake, and waiting
for his bit of cake and beer, or whatever I
had. He always shared my beer at night.
Once I forgot to give him his portion, and
after I had dropped asleep he put his
trunk around me and lifted me out of my
bed. I then recollected the nip of beer I
had left in the mug, not enough to wet
the old fellow's throat, but as soon as he
got it he was satisfied.
He was mischievous, too, and oftentimes he would wait until I had fallen
asleep and then carefully take off my bedclothes without awakening me, If It was
cold weather I would find the quilts
crowded In the ventilator overhead. I recollect finding my coat and vest carefully
tucked into the grating of the oar, out of
my reach. I looked for them for half an
hour, while Jumbo swung his trunk like
an enormous pendulum, as he always did
when expressing his delight. Finally he
directed my attention to the grating, and
at my request gave them back. Many
times Jumbo has picked me up and
placed me out of danger of various kinds
to which he fancied I was exposed, and in
several instances he saved my life. When
the stampede of elephants took place last
year he caught me in his trunk and held
me a prisoner between his fore feet until
the general alarm had subsided.
I.argeat Flf Tree In the World.
The largest and probably tho oldest fig
< rec in the world, standing in the garden
ul' the Oapuoln monastery at Hoscoff, Is
about to be sold. It was planted in 1631.
Its branches cover a space of 48«> square
BWUas—suffleient to shelter 300 persons.
We have not seen the division list, but
venture to predict that the majority of
94 by which the government at Ottawa
has been sustained, was largely composed of Grit members of the House
who were sound on the Riel question.
A motion brought into the House at
Victoria relative to liquor licences elicited some amusing discussion. The
Temperance members hastened to place
on roo0r(i their approbation of whiskey
selling and the membtrs who have more
or less remote interests In whiskey explained how great an evil it is, but how
some particular circumstance made the
evil no evil in their particular districts.
In this connection we may say that
there are one or two houses dispensing
whiskey in Nanaimo that ought to be
suppressed in the interests of common
decency.

A curious feature of the present
season of strikes and war between employees and employers is that in the
United States, a highly protective
country the strikers are winning, whilst
in England there is no question of
strikes, but a question of "Bread or
Bullets." This is the argument that
appeals most forcibly to protectionists
in defence ot high custom* tariffs.

A. R Johnston.

The condition of affairs in England
is such as to give anyone the heart-ache,
who has looked upon that grand old
mother of nations as the highest type
of civilization. England has been a great
moral force in the world for centuries,
but it seems as if the sceptre was passing away from her. She is in the
throes of a fierce but silent revolution.
The evil of having grafted the Roman
or feudal system of government upon
the Teutonic is making itself felt and
it is possible that until tfi"e representative
institutions of the country are remodelled that there will be no surcease from
the troubles that cannot be directly
traced to over population.

Mr. James Ternay, in a letter to the
Guardian, speaking of the Granitje
Creek mines, says that a panful of dirt
taken out by one company contained
$30 in dust. Nearly all Cedar Creek
is staked off. There are at Granite
Creek thirteeii hotels and saloons, nine
groceries; two jewellers' stores, a shoemaker's and a drug store, two blank-
smiths' shops and one doctor. Scores
of new houses are building,
THE SITUATION AT BLACK DIAMOND.
O.i Monday evening the miners at
Black Diamond held an informal meeting at which they dlsdussed the subject
of wages received by them. Breastmen
are getting per contract $7 per yard.
They claim this enables them to make
$3 a day in slope No, 1, but only $1.75
in the new slope, No. a, recently
opened, where the vein is not so large.
The miners held another meeting yesterday afternoon at o!clock when the
matter was further discussed, but the
result of their meeting is not yet known,

themselves of the privi e;je, whereas now
COO out of Tl.'O gladly lake part iu it several
times a week. The children are baihed in
sections of six to nine, and as the}' immediately ret'rn to the hchoolroom aud
resume their lessons, no risk of catching
cold is ever incurred, while the refreshing
influence of the bath shows itself in a
greater energy and eagerness to study.
The health of the children is greatly promoted, especially those from the homes of
the poor.

YALE TO GRANITE CREEK.
A FAVOURABLE ROUTE LOCATED j
WEST OF ENGLAND OLOTHS.TWEEDS ANO
IMPORTED DIRECT,
Yale, March 34.—The exploring
party, in charge of Riley and Northup,
sent out by the citizens of Vale to get
the most feasible and shortest route to
Granite Creek mines, returned yesterday, having been very successful in
getting to the mines and returning by
the same trail. They report a trail can
be made at very little expense by the
way of Yale and Spuzzum, utilizing the
Cariboo waggon road to Suspension
Bridge and by making a trail from
Spuzzum across the country to Otter
Flat on the Tulameen river, a distance
of 25 miles, where it intersected the
Nicola trail, 7 miles from Granite creek
The country traversed from Spuzzum
to Otter Flat is very favorable for travelling, with good feed for stock along
the route, and can be kept open without any difficulty all the year. Now
that the citizens of Yale have gone to
considerable expense, and proved the
feasibility of the shortest and best route
to the mines, it behooves the government to see that a trail is constructed
without delay. This trail is 34 miles
shorter than any other.—Colonist.

Parents may  well afford to give time '
and  ntlc:itioa not only to the proper instruction   of   their  children, but to their
amusement at home.    Many a  boy and
girl would bave   been   saved   from  evil
associates and resulting miseries  if home
had been made as  attractive as it should i
have  been.    Children and young people
must  bave amusement,   and fathers and '
mothers are wise when they see that they
have this at home,   and   that, they are en
couraged to' invite the best of   their asso- 1
ciates   at   proper   times to assist in the '
merry-making.
One grcnt trouble with parents is that
they get old too soon and forget that they
ever were young. Just at the opening of
the season of K ng evenings, see that you
add to your own and your young people's
happiness by arranging for games and
i:ood times just as carefully as you ar
range for cords of dry wood, bushels of
potatoes, and barrels of Hour.
It is related of a great Kngllsli scholar
noted for his dignity iu public that at
home he enjoyed a regular romp with his
children. Lpon one occasion, when the ,
fun was boisterous and at its height, it was
observed that au eminent statesman was
approaching, when he remarked to the
children, "we must stop this, there is a
fool coming. " A pro. os to this a Chicago
gentleman relates that last winter he had
ocaslon to visit Governor Dick Oglesby I
nt his home and found him laid out Hat
on the floor and a troop of children playing leap frog and rolling over him.

I would not advise a young   man to enter the army.    I tell my  boys to get a bit
of land, make homes for themselves, and
settle down as honest farmers rather than <
follow a soldier's life; and so I would advise others.   To   be  tossed  about from
post to pillar and never have  any settled
home is the fate of all soldiers, and this is [
ono of  the  great  disadvantages of the '
army.    We never know today where we
■will be to-morrow.     We are constantly
expecting orders, and are often separated i
from our families for months  and  even
years at a time.   There  is  an unrest, a
constant expectation of disagreeable orders, a lack of bonis and home interests,
that to most men is intensely disagreeable. 1
No man in the army is for one moment
his own master; he is continually subject
to the orders of his superiors.    One says
go, and he goeth; another come, and   he
Cometh; no matter how inclement the sea-
sou, no matter  how great  the  distance, j
how long it may keep him, what reasons '
he may have for remaining at   home—a '
sick wife or child is hardly an excuse for
delaying to obey an order, and even when
sick himself the soldier will   often go on ;
duty.    If he were a citizen  he would go !
to bed. but as a soldier   there   is   a pride
about doing his duty which, causes him to !

Pangar* to Health 11 th< Overcoat.
[London Lanoat.) 1
It would be far better polioy to wear '
only one coat at a time, and to make -
whatever change may be necessary by re- j
moving a thin coat and replacing it by a '
thicker one when going out of doors, and
the reverse when coming ia   If  instead
of wearing overcoats people would wear
coats of different thicknesses, according
to the weather and conditions generally,
they would avoid the danger of cooling I
by evaporation; the garments saturated
with moisture would be renewed, and dry
off the body instead of on it.
We believe no inconsiderable proportion
of the colds, attacks of lumbago and even
more formidable results of what are popularly called chills, may be traced to the
practice of wearing overcoats, which
arrest the ordinary process of evaporation,
Cause the clothing within to be saturated
with accumulated perspiration, and are
then removed, when rapid cooling takes
place. The avoidance of this peril is to
l.e attained by such change of coats as the '
conditions requ'.''"
