To the Ediloi:---  Sir. ��� It , is somewhat puerile to  suppose that 'parasites'---as you  bluntly term ihein���-can be exterminated by'the drastic measures you  suggest in your last issue, besides,  in these enlightened days; it is impossible to iulcrlere with ihe liberties of the free-born subjects, how-  evci insignificant they may appear.  And, in this country of all others,  where Jack is as good as his master  mid 'something' better! you surely  cannot question the rights of people  to live just as ihcy please, whether  they labor or not, or indulge in  throwing dice, or grafting, or-rapacious trade, 'or money-grubbing?  Why, Sir, you would turn the constitution of this noble province upside-down and in-side-out, and  make a terrible mess of things!  Does not all modern Socialistic philosophy point to the wisdom of tending and helping indolent people iu  consideration of their being less  harmful citizens, than some of their  busy���yet more mischievous neighbors?  'Jerry Jingle.'  'Nohall',  Nowhere, B. C. ���  Chance led to the discovery of a  remedy which will cause burns to  cease from being painful and also  causes injured flesh to heal speedily:  Dr. Thierry, a Pans physician, was  in the habit of using picric acid as  an anti-sceptic, so that his hands  were impregnated with the solution.  He dropped a lighted match on his  hand but fell no pain. A short  time after he accidentally dropped a  piece,of burning sealing wax on his  hand and though it burned the skin  he fell no pain. He began-experi-  menls in healing burns with a saturated solution of picric acid. All  pain instantly ceased, no blisters  formed and a cure was affected in  four or five days. Don't forget  this.  The Week, a Victoria publication  cf good, common sense and judgment, predicts a great future for the  Hon. Richard McBride.  Mr. McBride is still a young man  on the sunny side of forly. He has  taken a firm stand against the exorbitant demands of railway corporations. His attitude 011 the "better  terms" is well known and received  the'-approval of an--overwhelming'  majority of the-'people of the province.  Disintegration of the liberal government is already beginning to  show at Ottawa. When the final  moment arrives it will demand a  man, the man of proved capacity,  of energy, and of personal magnetism. Mr. Borden possesses these  qualifications only in a minor  degree, and 110 man in the party  possesses all of them lo the same  extent as Mr. McBride. The Week  pi edicts that the Hon. McBride will  be Premier of Canada in less than  ten \ears, and   possibly within five.  Fresh  line ol staple groceries on  hand at li. L. Pillman's.
