On Thursday, one  of their cows strayed away and was; lost.   On  the next morning, before breakfast, two  of  them started out to take a look for the missing  animal.   Alter travelling up the ravine for  Borne distance, they discovered the cow lying  among the brush.   Thinking she wa  a deep  -they went up to start her home ; but  t ap  pears the cow bad been killed by a grizzly  who was at this time lying at her side.   A  tbe men approached the bear ^^  the foremost one, and throwing him toje.  ground, tore out his entrails, and then e������  the second, caught his head in his mouth, and  hit it entirely off, mangling it fearfully.   The  hear then resumed his PO������W?n^rJfc������2  of the dead cow.   The man who was fast at  tacked did not die immediately,  but  mg  enough strength left to drag himself a short  distance from the spot.  In the meantime the man left at the camp  having prepared breakfast, went out to om  up his companions.   Finding their toil he  followed it until he saw the cow lying w W  bushes; and thinking he would drive her  home, he approached the spot, when the bear,  spring upon him,  instantly^\^  mangling him in the most horrible manner.  The Butvivkig victim, whewas lying in ������*  brush at a short distance from the scene, witnessed his approach and-death, ^waB w  , terribly wounded that ho was unable to giv.  any warning. -  -��������� WelseSobnamks���������The frequent occurrence  among the Welsh of suggestively Jewish sur_  names is date'to the fact that it was at one  lime the custom among the people for the son  to assume the christian name of his father as  his own surname.   The son of Levi Williams  took Levi for his surname; sinking the pater-  nab Williams.   In like manner arose such  names as Solomon, Davids, and in a few instances" even Moses, as the cognomens of un-  deuiably Welsh families. Afterward the practice of assuming the father's christian as a surname fell completely into disuetude, but it  has lasted long enough to leave a very enduring mark upon Welsh family names.  have, ithe majority'of i?theii members'of i the  Legislative Council elective." i  ,���������; I am notiiri favor of any: such amendment  as referred Ho in the, latter part iofi Clause 1^;  but I will support m. one' of the conditions oT  union; the��������� introductioni of a free, form. of; %oyr  ���������erRm^ntiOn'airespohsible ibasisSgivirigitb tlie  people, with union, the management .of, their  own'local-affairs.' ���������������������������:A~::"l        :^.x,.x...,y, :..-:..,:-���������  .

Plaintiff alleged that Mcpherson had been  a member of the Ottawa co. ; that he (plaintiff) had paid assessments for him on the understanding that he would not press for'repayment; that ample time would be given to  do so, but now plaintiff claimed that although*  he never would have sued McPherson, he  onght to be acknowledged as a creditor of  the estate of deceased on account of said assessments.  The defence was that plaintiff offered to  pay the assessments and would reimburse  himself from the profits of the mine. Defendant, who was secretary and a member of the  company, was present.when the company was  reorganised, and McPherson said, he would  like to remain in the company, bnt hie could  no t pay assessments.

Also,  Had not the original plans of Napoleon in  regard to his marriage been frustrated by tbe  Austrian Court, his life ;might have^kena  verv different course,and there mighfcnow>e  no necessity of his despairingly be-waihng the  fact that through foreign counsels U has al-  lowed himself to be mined.   He wished to  marry his cousin, the Princess Wasa, grand-  daughter of the Grand Duchess Stephanie of  Baden, and had already offered her h������:-hand  ou the occasion of a visit to Baden-Baden.  His salt was accepted, but with the condition  thai Prince Wasa, the father of. the Princess,  who lived in Vienna apart from his wife,  should give his consent ^Napoleon ttereupon  turned W the Emperor of Austria with the re.  onest that he should undertake the wooing of  the bride from Prince Wasa but he received  an answer to the effect that this was notper-  mittedby the laws of etiquette, inasmuch^  the, Prince was only a colonel in! the Austrian  army. ' * .  This, however, was merely an excuse, since  Franz' Joseph was determined to prevent the  proposed match at any price, He, therefore,  c mtinued tolnfiuence Prince Wasa to post-  tively refuse his consent; and, .while Napoleon still hoped on, a match between the  Crown Prince of Saxony and the Princess  was quick!? brought about by the intrigues  of the Austrian court. Napoleon was very  deeply moved and exasperated at this, and  upon first learning that this, his darling project, had been frustrated, he gave utterance  to tbe memorable words, ������ The princes of Europe shall have cause to thick of me."  It is true that at a later day tbe Emperor of  Austria had only too much cause for regretting the share which he had taken in this affair ��������� but for "Napoleon the result was much  worse from having perhaps the only real  heartfelt desire he ever experienced repressed  in this rude way. Even though the woman  ���������whom he had desired to make Empress of the  French had bv no means distinguished herself for eminent qualities, yet her modest,  bashful, almost dependent nature would have  beenazuaranteethat she would never have  endeavored to   overstep   the  limit ot  her  duties. :   Coffer���������The Coffee prepared by WILLSON  v R1CKMAN Fort street.
