WILL RUSSIA YIELD?    -  London, Aug. 20.-r-You inay expect to hear next week   that   England and Russia have come to a de-  cisionas to their future   relations:  but the   nature  of the  decision!  <���������peace or war���������to-day   hangs   in  the balance.   I hear  on   excellent  authority that Lord Salsbury falls  back upon his original position,and  if Russia refuses to bring herself to  remain within' the   limits   agreed  upon, she must take the consequences.   The British fleet is ready   at  the moment for hostilities.   Officers  on leave have been warned to   hold  themselves   ready   to   join    their  ships on sudden summons.   In the  meantime Lord Salsbury is waiting  for Russia's   decision; but   Russia  has not yet made up her mind. ���������  MORE KLONDIKE GOLD.  Nanaimo, Aug. 20.���������S. S. Dirigo  arrived this afternoon from , Klondike with  forty   passengers;   and  over $200,000 between them. They  report that Skagway has been completely deserted by the male population who have gone to   the   new  gold fields in Pine Creek and   Ta-.  gish Lake.  THE THUNDERER TALKS.  London, Aug. 20.���������The Times  this morning says it foresees circumstances which may compel the  United States to a permanent occupation of Cuba; and adds if Amer.  ica is prepared to undertake the responsibility of the government of  the whole of the Phillipines, it is  hard to see how any other power  could interfere. If the United  States repudiates such responsibil  ity, a very perilous state of' things  might ensue, because it would not  be any easy dispute as to the right of  other powers to terminate the state  of anarchy. In any case no European power need reason upon finding the United States as easy to coerce as Japan.  /  The Grants Home  :Iust five minutes 9C>|ur o,dpck jesterr  day (Mooday)^ carriage drove up to the  residenc������o4 Mr, Akx.

The papers there,apprised them pretty fully of the Trent river disaster.    Hence, as soon as possible  they took the train   for   Nanaimo,   and  were kindly driven over to Wellington by  Mr. McCutcheon where they found   Kil-  patrick,s carriage in   waiting, and   were  taken over the south end of  the   Nanai-  mo-Comox truek road, which   they   des^  cribe as a "daisy"���������and a very big   and  beautiful one at that���������"Why it was   delightful to drive over it" said one of them  "If we had such roads here���������"  "Yes, I know, but when did   you   get  to Big Qualicum?"

Wharf Notes  Last week it was a sad sight when almost  the entire population followed the cofSs-,of  young Walter Work to the steamor.  On Thursday the new coke barge' came in  with 12 C. P. R. can, towed by the tug  Cur. After these were landed to be filled  the barge was towed back to Vancouver,  and was expected .to return to the wharf on  Monday night with 12 more empties, and  take over 12 cars filled with coke.  On 8unday, H. M. S. flagship Imperieine  accompanied with a torpedo boat passed up  to Comox Bay where was anchored another vessel of Her Majesty's navy.  Some vessels, bound north, have stopped  here for coal but could not of course be  supplied.  The City of Grand Rapids came in on  Monday morning with a party bound north  They appeared in no hurry to get away.  The family of Mr. R. B. Anderson, who  has been summering here for a few weeks,  left for their home in Cumberland, the first  of this week.  Note.���������The C. P. R. cars used to convey the coke are quite large and hold by  tested weight 20 tons each. The barge  is known as Transfer "No. 1.  Immediately after the the accident on  Wednesday.Mr. Enoch Walker and Win  Bell, who wert- at work under the bridge,  did what was possible for the survivors, as  did also Mrs. Harwood who was early present: but practically nothing could be done  in exhuming the bodies buriepVin the wreck.  until the arrival o������ the wrecking car. jpW^Pa^lwjiaw ���������*  *fj  THE CUMBERLAND NEWS  A REAL BOSTONIAN.  *   CAREFULLY   DRAWN    PICTURE   OF  THE  HUB'S TYPICAL CITIZEN.  Built on Straight lanes and Follows a  Regular Schedule From Birth to Death.  His Mortal Horror of "New Yorkers and  That Class of People."  It is tho custom of those who do not  livo in Boston to regard tho Hub and those  who do livo in it with' humorous tolerance. Tho typical Bostonian is publicly  supposed to habitually wear spectacles,  subsist wholly upon baked beans, garnish  his daily talk with archaic forms of speech  and, becauso ho pronounces tho "a" broad,  to be possessed of lurking Anglomaniacal  tendencies. Not one of theso suppositions  is correct. Tho typical Boston man differs  only in one rospoct from thoso who hull  from other cities." Tho Bostonian is insular to tho core. He judges the universe  from tho standpoint of his bringing up,  and tho fact that this standpoint exists  only in Boston bothers him not at all..  , Boston is so geographically situated that5  tho tide of commercial travel does not pass  through it. No ono goes to Boston in order to get anywhero except to Boston, and,  as a result, tho average Bostonian is  brought littlo in contact with the outside  world. Thero exist in Boston young men  and women of tho best'.families who have  never been-farther from that city than  '   Capo Cod, and novor will go farther.  ' Tho career of a young Bostonian is planned for him in advance. At tho ago of 10  ' he goes to Miss Hannah Adams'school,  en Chestnut street; at the ago of< 15 he  #ocs to Mr. Hopkinson's school, also on  Chestnut street, and at 19 ho enters Harvard college, where he joins eithor the  Porcellian or the A. D. club. After graduation he takes a hurried trip through the  i principal capitals of Europe, glancing casually at tho stock sights and comparing  them unfavorably with his native town.  Ho gets home as quickly as he possibly  can.  Certain forms of commercial occupation  aro open to him and others are not. For  , example, coal is permissible, whilo leather  is "low." A very well known Bostonian,  now dead, never spoke to a leather merchant and always left tho room whenono  ontored. In tho meantime tho young man  has joined tho Somerset and the Country  clubs. Ho then marries a girl, noedless\to  eay of 'soino "good old Boston family,"  and this girl ho has usually known from  infancy. He has danced with her at the  "Friday afternoon" class at Papantic, and  together they have climbed tho rocks at  Nahant in search of tho mythical '.'fairy  food" which is supposed to exist there and  doesn't.  Together, then, this young- couplo settle  down to live on tho sunny side of eithor  Beacon'street or Commonwealth avenue.  Mark, the sunny side. Doubtless some very  worthy persons live on tho shady side of  theso thoroughfares, but���������well, the good,  thoroughgoing Pfstonian always choose?  tho sunny side and leaves the shady side  to bo inhabited-by "Now Yorkers and that  class of people, "as an elderly maiden lady  in Boston once put it. With matrimony  tho orderly existence of tho true Bostonian  continues upon its well ordered way. He  fjets up every morning at 8 o'clock and  breakfasts at half past. At 9 ho walks up  Beacon hill, meeting and gathering with"  him as ho goes friends who lead exactly  tlie samo well regulated life that he docs.  The y o'clock march of the business men  of Boston up Beacon hill is a feature of  tho city's daily life.  At 1 o'clock they all go to luncheon at  the Exchange club, which, like the Somerset-. Puritan and Algonquin clubs, has a  ladies' dining room, where tho feminine  relatives of tho members can lunch and  lino and "chargo" tho bill to tho members. At 4 o'clock all tho business offices  are deserted, and the business man goes to  his! club, where he stays till 0:30. meantime drinking two Martin cocktails made  very dry���������never more than two.  At 6:30, in company with the same men  with whom ho walked up Beacon hill in  the morning, he walks down Beacon hill  at night. At 7o'clock ho dines. At 10:30  ho takes a nightcap of whisky At 11  o'clock ho goes to bed.  On tho 20th of May tho true Bostonian  moves himself and his belongings to Beverly or Nahant. It is popularly supposed  that all well to do BosLonians always move  out of town on tho 29th day of April in  order to dodge taxes.    No ono over did.  Beverly haf, been invaded more or less  by "New Yorkers and that class of people." but Nahant retains its Boston purity.-  Thoiatc Thomas App'.eton well named  it "cold roast Boston." Tho steamer  - leaves Nahant at 8 o'clock every ninrnin-.',.  and at 8 o'clock' the true Bostonian, in  company with the same men with whom;  ho has walked up and down Beacon hill  all winter, takes the steamor ' and--plays'  hearts in tho smoking room for an hour.  At 5 o'clock ho takes the same steamer and  plays whist with- tho samo men for an  hour. Why hearts in the morning and.  whist in the afternoon has never been explained.  Tho true Bostonian seldom 4. as out in  the evening either in the city or the country. In Beverly bo can't go out, even if he  wishes to. Tho distances are.so great that  horses are necessary, and tho avenues are  so steep and so dark and so winding-that-  ���������horses are impossible. But the truo Bostonian does not go ont at night. Every  now and then he docs go out, and when  he does he���������well, to put it mildly, he un-t  bends. It is related of a very well known  and very typical Bostonian of the olden  school that ho onco walked into tho Somerset club and saw a strango face.  "Who's that?" he said.  "Why, that's a stranger," said ono of  the members.  "Punch his head," said tho typical Bostonian laconically.  A great friend of this samo Bostonian  moved into the suburbs of Boston to a spot  about as far away from Boston as Jersey  City is from tho city hall in New York.  Years passed and tho friends never met.  "Why don't you go and see So-and-so?"  somo ono said to tho typical Bostonian.  "You know I never travel," he answered  T-DENY IT.  The frWk testimony of a  famous physician..  When Dr. Aycr announced his Sarsapa-  rilla to the world, he, at, once found the  physicians his friends. ��������� Such a remedy  was what they had looked for, and they  were prompt to appreciate its merits and  prescribe it. Perhaps no medicine���������known  as a patent medicine ���������is so geri'erally administered and prescribed by phj*siciauH������i*  Dr Ayer's Sarsaparilla forblooddiseafce^,:  and diseases of the skin that indicate a  tainted condition of the blood.

The testimonials received from physicians  to the value of this remedy would fill a.  volume. Here is one leaf signed by Rich'd  H. Lawrence, M- D., Baltimore, Md.  "It affords me pleasure to bear testimony  to the success which your preparation of  Sarsaparilla has had in the treatment of  cutaneous and other diseases arising from  ������ vitiated condition of the blood.
