Though late in having their Christmas  Tree, the Sunday School classes of Trinity Church made a happy group of wee  ones on Sunday evening. The children  rendered some pretty songs and good re.  citations. Miss Chambers had taken  pains in preparing the little ones, who ful  ly repaid her by presenting in good style  the short but pleasing program. Dr.  Lawrence, Superintendent of the Sunday  School, acted as chairman and delivered  a most interesting  address.

W7llfe  The Largest   Bear.  Dr! C. Hurt Merriam, oi' Washington,  has recently published a scientific account ol* the bears "of North America, in  which he states that the largest bears  of any species now living are tlie "Kn-  '- diak bears,-' which inhabit'"north western Alaska. They differ from ail "other  American species. ;���������  RICHARD  PARKS  BLAND.  A "VViae  Bird.  The same little captive described in  the preceding paragraph gave an  amusing proof of the excellence of its  memory and the quickness of its observation. The first time it saw a large  brown ant it seized the insect and,mulled it in its mouth, but finding the taste  disagreeable, instantly rejected the  morsel.    "The next' day the bird  was  . taken to the same tree, ancl on perceiving a second ant of the same species,  eyed it closely and deliberately, and  then-'shook its head and vigorously  wiped its beak with unmistakable signs  7 of recollection."  A Peep Polar Sea.  Doctor Nansen, who returned last  Bummer'baflled in his attempt to reach  the north pole, although he got nearer,,  to it than anyone else has ever been,  ' reports a fact which upsets old ideas  about the Polar Sea. He found that  the sea north of Siberia is shallow in  its southern portion, averaging only  00 fathoms deep, but that above latitude 79 degrees, it suddenly becomes  profound, the bottom falling to a depth  of 1,G00 to 1,900 fathoms. If *this applies co the entire polar basin, thon.the  north pole does not lie in shallow  water, as many have supposed, but is  situated in the midst of .a deep sea���������a  fact which has a bearing upon the  problem of now best to reach the pole.  Defeated  for   the Presidential Nomination, He Goes Buck to Conjrress.  Richard Parks Bland, of Missouri, is  perhaps congratulating himself now  that the eloquent Xebraskan snatched  the Democratic nomination for,President from him at Chicago. It will 'be  remembered that up to the time Bryan  made his memorable convention speech,  Blaud appeared to have the nomination  already in hand. Bryan's eloquence  turned the tide the other way. An effort to make Bland tlie vice:pre������iden-  tial nominee also failed: A few weeks  Later his friends at home nominated  him for Congress aud he was elected.  After an absence of two years Bland  therefore returns to the capital, where  for twenty years he was tlie most conspicuous advocate of free silver, lie  is the author of many free silver bills,  notably that which was merged in the  Bland-Allison act of 1S7S. The silver  bill 'of 1S90, which passed the House  and led to the Sherman compromise,  .also bore Bland's name.    He has been  warm. This water communicates with  the receptacle in the heel of the shoe,  and derives its ��������� heat from the heated  substance located there.  "Whn the owner of a pair of heatable  shoes wishes to go out intfi the cold and  sloppy street he opens the receptacle  Microbes Leap   Niasrara. '  Professor Frankland told some very  interesting things about microbes in  'water during a recent lecture at the  ���������Royal Institution. He said that these  little organisms sent into the Niagara  River from the';sewcrs of Buffalo take  the tremendous leap over the great  falls, and pass through the fearful turmoil of the rapids ancl whirlpools beneath 'with little or no harm. But  after they have reached tho placid  waters of Lake Ontario they rapidly  perish, and almost entirely disappear.  This and many other similar facts  were adduced to show that quiet subsidence in undisturbed water is far  more fatal to bacterial life than the  most violent agitation in contact with  atmospheric air. Hence Professor  Frankland argues that the storage of  water in reservoirs is an excellent  method of freeing it from microbes.  Floating Metals.  If a small rod of iron���������a straight  piece of wire, for instance���������be greased,  it can be made to float on water. The  grease apparently prevents the breaking of the surface of the water, ancl  the iron lies cradled in a slight depression, or trough. Recently Dr. A.  M. Mayer, experimenting with rods'  and rings of irou, tin, copper, brass,  platinum, aluminum, German silver,  etc.. found that" all metals, even the  densest; "will float on water when their  surfaces are chemically clean. A per-  f ecth'-'Jlean piece of copper or platinum  wire, fprdnstance,. forms a trough for  . itself on'the surface of water just as  if it were, greased. The same is true of  a small.,,rod:: of glass. Doctor Mayer  believes the floatingis due to a film of  air condensed, on the surface of the  glass or metal, because if the rod l>e  .heated to redness, and as soon as it  cools be placed on water, it will sink;  7but if it be exposed to the air for a  short time it will float. ���������  How Gold PcTictrnt.es Lead.  Very wonderful are the experiments  of Prof. Roberts-Austen on the "cliffu-  fiion of soLid metals." The professor  has proved, Cor instance, that gold,  without being melted, will diffuse its  atoms through a mass of solid lead. Of  course the amount of tlie diffusion is  slight, but it is easily measurable. In  isome of the experiments cylinders of  lead about two and three-quarters  ���������Inches in length, with gold placed atthe  lottom, were kept at a high tempcra-  ���������iure���������but not high enough to melt either  iof the metals���������for Vx?ripus periods of  i-tlme. In these days enough gold had  ���������passed upward through the solid lead  to be detected at the ton of the cylinders! Gold and lead kept pressed together for four days, without being  'heated above ordinary temperatures.  ,*were strongly united. Solid gold also  diffuses in solid silver and solid copper.  These facts are regarded as furnishing  confirmation of the view long held by  Prof. Graham that "the three conditions of matter, solid, liquid and gaseous, probably always exist in every  liquid or solid substance, but that oue  ���������predominates over the others."  EICHABD P. BLAND.  rightly called "the father of free coinage."  Bland was born on a Kentucky farm  in 1835. His father died when he was  7, his mother a few years later, but  the boy, dependent on his own resources, worked his way through  school. He managed to get au academic  training and then taught school in Kentucky and-Missouri. _ In 1S55 lie went to  California and spent ten years teaching  school, Studying law, '��������� practicing law  and fighting Indians. ' In" 1SG5 he returned'to "Missouri and in 1808 settled  on a farm at Lebanon, his present  home. In 1S72 he was elected to Congress'and served continuously, until the  close of the Fifty-tliird Congress, wheu,  having been defeated in the landslide of  1S94, he retired to his farm.  FIREMEN  ON   WHEELS.  Inventor   Arranges a Novel   Machine  for Use in Fire Departments.  An inventor of Racine has secured a  patent for a new bicycle fire engine  which will be of value at places where  there are good roads. The machine itself is very simple, yet it-is a complete  chemical engine. It is a three-wheeled  affair, but otherwise is built much on  the plan- of the modern bicycle. The  seat and handle bars are -arranged as  on an ordinary bicycle. Between, the  two forward wheels, resting on the  axle, is a .thirty-two gallon aluminum  tank, in which is the chemically prepared water for use at the fire. The  tank is galvanized and ��������� made rust  proof, ancl is covered with a heavy  brass jacket. The machine is fitted  with pneumatic tires and ,the frame is  made of heavy bicycling tubing. At  the top of the tank there is a pressure  gauge.    Fifty feet of hose is carried,  GOING   TO A   FrRE.  the hose being wound around the tank.  When ready for use the engine machine, without the rider, weighs 225  pounds. Several tandem bicycle engines are now being built on the same  lines. Each machine is equipped with  lanterns, fire axes, crow bars and pike-  poles.       ^   NO  MORE COLD   FEET.  Inventive     G-enius     Now    Gives ' Us  Heated Shoes for   Winter.  Paul "Wonneberger, a resident of  Dresden, the capital of Saxony, has  devised a beatable shoe, which will  cause his name to be blessed wherever  mortals suffer from cold feat- during  the winter season. The apparatus'consists of a tiny boiler and furnace in  the heel and sole of the shoe, which  causes a continuous circulation of  warm water around the extremities.  Within the heel of the heatable shoe,  which is hollowed out for the purpose,  the inventor has placed a glowing substance similar in its nature to that used  In the familiar Japanese hand warmers. The soles of the shoes are hollowed out for the reception of a rubber  bag covered with asbestos, and containing the water that keeps the feet  STORY OF THE RAVEN.

Walking keeps the?  water, circulating, and at every, step  the grateful warmth is felt, the upper,  as well.as the lower surface of the feet  feeling its' effects.' The shoes, are a  trifle heavier than the ordinary ones.  The sole is but very little thicker than  that of the ordinary wet weather shoe.  LOST ART OF CHINESE POTTERS  The   Wonderful   Peachblow   Vase   Li  Sent to Mr. Wharton iiarker.  While Mr. Wharton Barker���������,the Phil-  adelphia'financier and agent, was negotiating for valuable concessions with  the Chinese Government,'Li Hung  Chang, to mark the importance of the  negotiations, sent Ma Kiet Chang as  special envoy to Mr.- Barker; also a  present commensurate with the magnitude of the undertaking���������the celebrated  peachblow vase.

Haste Wastes Time.  A gentleman who had an impediment  in his speech was dining in a restaurant, and was being served���������a great  favor���������by the proprietor of the establishment. This man was a bustling,  nervous person, with an exaggerated  opinion of the value of his time.  Soup was served. The guest waited  a moment, and at the, first opportunity,  began to say to the restaurant-keeper:  "I c-c-c-au't e-e-e-ea "  "Well, what is it, sir?" asked the  restaurant-keeper,  impatiently.

The story ot the growth of any notable thing is always a matter of common interest. Even to-day the -minds  of the great historians have pondered  over the mysteries of creation; have  attempted to deduce -the processes by  which the dewdrop, xthe quartz crystal,  the blade of_.grass, or the universe  came to be what they are. So, too, in  the literary world there has always  been a keen study of motives and influences as they have been at work in  the formation of this or that masterpiece of rhyme,  reason  or, fancy.  It is sometimes more than the mere  inquisitiveness ' of the child who attempts to get at the works of a watch  that inspires literary students to solve  If they can the mental processes which  have produced the ��������� world's masterpieces in literature. But, after all, the  two inquiries have something in common; and, as men are but children of  a larger growth, even those who do  not pretend to literary insight or  knowledge take keen pleasure In hearing for the'first time the story of somo  literary work which has become a recognized product of genius. For that  reason it is likely that an article which  appeared in the Bachelor of Arts recently under the title of "The .Writing  of the Raven" is likely to' attract a  common interest among all.classes of  readers.   ,  From the story, as told by F. A.  Mathews, it appears that the fancy of,  Poe had long been pursued ^by -��������� the  thought of the perpetual melancholy  of the raven's croak. Ever since Poe'a  boyish days at school In Stoke-Newing-  ton he seemed]to dislike the raven and '  to hear "the sordid flap, of Its wings."  This recollection appears to have been  brought back to Poe's mind by the figure of the raven in "Barnaby Rudge,"  which had then been recently presented to the public. The poet confessed  something of this to Cornelius Mathews, from whose lips the story has  been handed down. The conversation  took place in the old Park theater in  New York, and the poet's friend was  surprised to find him .hardly an hour  later standing on a street corner In a  dreary winter raiii scribbling on a  piece of paper.   ' -   .      -  It was in that bitterly cold storm  that the poet's fancy had at last found  utterance, and there,* in the shrieking  winds and.the/jtinging sleet of the almost deseiS'ecf'. street, the , poet ��������� read  aloud "The 7 Raven.",, The brooding  thoughts of months had at last grown  into- something at which the world'of  letters still marvels,' _ for, despite, its  evident weaknesses, which verge dangerously near the incoherent, "The  Raven" is a strong poem', and will.live  much longer than many of the pass-,  lug fads of the present generation.-1,  Boston Advertiser.

''  _, There is one proprietary medicine in  use in this city, the name of which'hat  beoome a household word and'thatis  the preparation known as- "Pink Pilla'  for Pale People."^ Shakespeare said,-  "a rose by any other name would smell  as sweet./' That may be so, but  pills put up by any other, name would  not have the same attraction-norjpopu-  lar sales that Pink Pills have in -Spokane, Wash. .  .    ,  A representative of- the Minneapolit  Journal started out the other day-to investigate the merits of this popular and  ���������widely-sold household medioine. The  evidence was on every hand. Hamilton B. Merrill, a young money loauer  of Spokane, was seen by the newspaper  .man. Mr. Merrill made no secret of  his remarkable ���������oure by these little  pellets.  "Do  I   know  the   effloaoy of Pink  Pills?" lie reiterated.    "I should rather think I do, they have been a blessing  to me.    I am not in the habit of praising  proprietary medicine, but I  must  say that  Pink  Pills  as far as my case  goes  have no  equal in   the world.    A  little over, a'year ago I began ailing and  commenced to lose, flesh rapidly.    The  doctor told me to' stop  smoking; this I*  did, but   the  result   was  eveii worse. 7  My heart beats,deoreased   to less  than  forty a minute. . I was prescribed for  by  my doctor, but' without - reqeiving'  any   benefit   whatever. .   I   continued"  daily toc_row worse and my parents became alarmed over my condition".  Some  one  suggested Pink Pills; I thought I  would   try them   anyway.    And I tell '  you I oannot endorse them too highly;  they worked   likeva. charm in my case."''  TMy heart  soon became normal again,7  my^flesh increased and I felt like a new-  man7\ To tell   you the truth I am still'  taking\them.    I have  a   sort of fondness  for\ them yet  and I  am loath "to  give them up.  "I know of a young lady living in  this city, whose condition was even  worse Mian mine, she took Pink Pills  andiiKone of society's gayest young  lj-tdies now. I wish I were at liberty  tta give her name, as I am sure she would"  only be too' delighted to give them a'  hearty send off. I believe Pink Pills  cannot be too highly recommended.  They are gems, indeed!"  Mr. Merrill is a young, man of 22 or  88 years of age and today is the pink,  of health. He has a splendid complexion and would be the last person to be '  taken for one who has been so seriously  ill only a few months ago. He is a  splendid athleto besides ,, and moves in  the best ciroles of society here.

Shoremen, or shorewor leers, th������y  sometimes call themselves, but their  most familiar appellation is "toshers,"  and the articles they pick up "tosh."  They really belong to another well-  known class, the mudlarks, but con-  sidei^themseh-es a grade or two above  these latter, for the' genuine tosher  does not confine himself as they do,  traveling throug-li the Thames mud and  picking up odd pieces of coal or wood,  copper, nails, bolls, iron aud old rope.  The tosher, when the coast is clear of  the police, makes his way into the sewers.-and will venture sometimes for  miles in quest of valuables that ocen-  'sionally find their way into them by the  kitchen sink or thcTstreot grating.  When about io enter the sewers these  men provide themselves with a-pole  seven or eight feet long; on one end of  which there is a large iron noe, a bag  carried- on the back, a canvas apron  . tied around them, and a dark lantern,  similar to a policeman's. This they  strap ou their right breast, so that  while walking upright through the  large sewers the light is thrown straight  in front. When they come to the  branch sewers and have to stoop, the  light is'thrown directly at their feet.  As they make their way they use their  hoe in the mud at their feet and in the  crevices of-the brickwork,-and .occasionally, shillings,and silvcrTspoon-s find  ������ a temporary resting place in the bag at  ��������� 7 their 'back or in-their 'capacious coat  ^..pockets.-     *  ."       /.L   r  -,-, 'rx"_o toshers generally go in gangs of  '-���������three.or four, both for the sake of coni-  -pany and .to be able to defend thein-  'n selves'from" the  rats  with  which'the  sewers, swarm.   When they come near  a street grating they close their   lanterns and watch an opportunity to slip  past' unnoticed, for otherwise a crowd,  of people might collect at the grating,  whoso presence would put the police on  the,alort.  They find great quantities of  ��������� money, copper money especially, in the  creA'iccs of the brickwork a little below  the grating, and not infrequently shillings, half-crowns and sixpences, with  an occasional sovereign or half-sovereign.  *��������� When "in luck" they find many articles of plate, spoons, ladles, silver-handled knives andjlorks, mugs and drinking cups,,and now and then articles of  , jewelry. They generally also manage  to fill their bags with the more bulky  , articles found, in the-search, such as old  metal, bones-and ropes.

K.   l-KATT,  " There sre very intelligent men and  women who still prefer open fires to  steam pipes and furnaces.  But only a very shallow-minded person would deliberately'choose an -old-  fashioned remedy in case of sickness.  Sufferers from neuralgia, rheum a:  tism or kidney trouble-want the .eisrest  and most advanced remedy science can  give them. r Getting well is not a matter, of sentiment, but,the most seriously  practical matter.

The Masonic banquet given last week  by Cumberland Lodge was a. credit to  the order. .Wine was excluded out of  deference to the wishes of the ladies. In  the east when ladies attend, the toasts  at banquets are announced as sentiments,  and the chairman calls upon some gentleman for a response which is given by  song or speech. There is no rising to  drink or touching of glasses, which is not  considered good form���������suitable only in a  gentleman's banquet. is  God bless the Queen and  ladies too,  God bless the Masons one and all;  For all of worth our minds recall  Our praise but feebly sounds their  due.  THE ISLE OF BOREDOM.  As yon sail through life ' take pains  and  , steer '  Away from the island that lies too near  The Island of Boredom,  which all  me*,  fear.  The island sets np like a shelf of rock,  Bat woe to the sailor who lands at the  dook,  And offers the people a chance to talk.  For they talk all night, and  they talk all  dayi , ���������  And try as you will to gst away,  t, r  They pin you  down,  and they  make yon  stay. I ,  They talk of things they have done  and.  said,  They talk yen awake, and they talk you  ���������   to bed,  Till you almost wish they would talk you  dead.  And   the   queerest   thing,    and   one   to  deplore,  About the dwellers about that shore,  Not one of them knows that he is a bore.  So steer away from this island ehelf,.^  That in governed  they say  by a  wioked  elf, '_. '     ^        .  Lest you be  a  bore   and  not know  it  A   yourself.  ���������Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

The price of what our Comox farmers get  for their farm products is determined by  what it can be laid down here from the  o her sid������ of the boundary.  Mr.G.H.Hadwen of Duncan, Secretary  of  the    Dairy    Association   of   British  Columbia, has received an  invitation for  all who are interested  in the tariff to ex.  press their views.    Mr.Hidwen suggests  that   agricultural societies   take  action,  through   their   directors or committees  preparing   resolutions,   expressing   their  views, submitting them to general  meeting of their members, and  for approval.  These could be forwarded to Mr. Hadwen  or sent direct to Ottawa.  Let the Comox Agricultural Association Directors meet and consider the  matter. They need to look after their  interests as well as other people, and  m*w is the time. Mr. Roe, the Custom's  ������fleer would meet with them or furnish  ail seeded information as to tariff schedules on articles aiTecting them. Without  a tariff on farm products the farms of  Comox would loose half their vaJue.  HEWS REVIEWED.  Gilbert Parker,' the Canadian novelist is  out in defence of the Turk....

NOTES  Women Who Drink Secretly.  -. .Dr.C.F.Coley,     writing     of    solitary,  secret drinking says:   This is a danger to  which women  are  far  more  open   than  anen.    For the most par. a man's  strongest temptation  to drink is   ompany; she  draeks alone.. A man drinks for pleasure,  a woman drinks to  escape from  pain or  distress.   Hence it happens that inebriety  is- so frequently   the  result  of a  habit  begun at the  recommendation  of some  ���������medical adviser, more commonly amateur  than   professional.   " I   h_ve   no   words  sufficiently strong to condemn the abom  iaable practice of administering  spirits to  . young women   for the   relief of neuralgia  and Other pains wbich are naturally liable  to   last  long- or recur  frequently.    Few  such case escape  without  at  some   time  being exposed to the  temptation  to seek'  respite from  suffering, by   this  doubtful  and dangerous 'means.    Il h /veil for the  victim, if the  wholesome leaching  of the  Baud of Hope leads  her to rufn.se it, or if  she is protected   byojudicious' parents, or  a conscientious-medical adviser.  ,,A.

The reign of Queen' Victoria, which  now has been longer than that of any  other sovereign of Great Britain and its  dependencies, spans by far the mos.t interesting period of the same duration in  the history of humanity. Its striking-  events include most.of those which  have substantially revolutionized , the  business and social life of the civilized  world. It should be a matter of pride  to those concerned that by far the  greater number of discoveries and advances that have contributed toward  this result have been the work of representatives of the two great English-  speaking nations���������Great Britain and  the United States.

"Just as a big wave came curling toward the lost vessel, Gunner Raehn requested tbe men to join in singing the  national anthem. They grasped one  another's hands, and with their voices  mingling with the howling of the storm,  they went down to death in the sea."  So reads the closing paragraph in the  account of the recent loss of tlie German gunboat litis, in the Orient. Bravery born of patriotism does not need  the .stimulus of an enemy of fiesh and  blood. These German sailors died for  their country as bravely and as truly as  though they had met death in battle.

The .j'Teipts fell a little more  than eight ��������� million dollars short of  meeting the expenditures. This deficiency is less by sixteen hundred  thousand dollars than that for the preceding year. As the volume of mail  matter constitutes a kind of barometer  of business conditions, it is interesting  to notice that there was an increase of  about seven per cent, in the receipts for  postage over the current fiscal year.  The first quarter of the current fiscal  year showed a falling off in receipts.  The commercial community of Chicago is made up largely of young and  forceful men.

The  idea upon which tbe inventor 'worked  is that moving trains could be made to  automatically generate sufficient electricity while- running down grades to  help the locomotives to overcome the  resistance encountered on steep grades.  He has made some experiments, and is  satisfied that a dynamo operated automatically by a car can send enough  energy info a storage battery to overcome the resistance at an adverse grade  equal in length to the down grade upon  which the electricity is generated. In  operating this contrivance, the train  hands would have to use the dynamo  as a generator whenever the trains are  on down grades, and switch the current  back through.the dynamo and use the  latter as a motor when there is any  climbing of grades to be done. If this  contrivance will do all that its inventor  claims for if, the electrical apparatus  will probably be used by railroads that,  have heavy grades on their lines. The  supplemental force would reduce the  wear and tear on the engine and also  cause a reductionn in the amount af  fuel consumed. These items of cost are  important, and if an-j economy could  be wrought in regard'to them the railroads would gladly avail themselves of  it. It would seem as though the movement of a train could be utilized to the  extent at least of providing a safe light,  by the means of storage batteries.  splendid portrait of-the plowman poet's  features.

Social life is crowded with unsocial  people.  Story of, a .Par.-1-sol.  In tbe history of the umbrella is told  a story,,of a beautiful fringed greens'* Ik parasol of the time of the French  Restoration.  One summer afternoon more than  seventy years ago two pleasant-looking  people sat in rented chairs in the  Champs watching tho passers-by and  enjoying the beautiful day. The gentleman looked as if he might be a prosperous tradesman; the young' woman  was beautifully dressed and very attractive in appearance.  When they rose to-go away the gentleman found that he had no "money.  The woman who owned the chairs  stormed and scolded, and denounced  them as swindlers, until, to pacify her,  the gentleman took the lady's parasol,  an exquisite affair of green silk, fringe,  and with a rosewood handle, and gave  It to her. He handed her one.of the  lady's yellow.gloves also, and said:  "Keep the parsol as a pledge of what  E owe you, and do not give it up to anyone unless he shows you the, mate to  that glove."  Then he and the lady walked away  across the Place de la Revolution and  the Boulevard de la Madeleine. Suddenly rain began to fall. There were  no carriages passing. The couple hurried into a doorway. ..............  Immediately the concierge' of the  house came out. and invited them into  his office. He gave them chairs. and:  offered them, if they did not wish to  wait until the rain was over, the loan  of,his fine green-serge umbrella. Tbe  gentleman accepted these attentions  gratefully, and he and the lady made  their way through the rain under the  borrowed umbrella.  An hour later a footman in livery returned to the good-natured concierge  his umbrella, with a gift of several  bank-notes and the compliments of the  Due de Bern, nephew of the king.  Then going to the Champs Elysees,  the footman sought,out the ungracious.*,  renters of chairs, and, displaying a yellow glove, said, "You recognize this  glove, madameV Here are eight sous,  sent you by the Due de Bern to redeem  the Princess Caroline's parasol."

Gazley  did the same in Mineral township during the corresponding period.   *  ,    Squire  Bonner,   however,   seems  to  ., have been,the only one of the lot who  made any  special effort to discharge  '   the duties of his office.  Justice, as ho impersonated her, was  ' not merely a blind goddess, standing  " with balances and sword, by her,altar,  ready to1 hear the plaints of tbe afflicted.  Far from it.

Realizing that but little business  would' come to him at Holmes' Hole,  on Rush Creek, where he resided,  "Squire Bonner put his "justice shop"  on "Wheels, metaphorically speaking,'  and traveled from camp to camp in  search of controversies upon which to  adjudicate and collect the fees.  Many aro the tales that the old-timers love to 'recount of-this worthy justice and his pioneer methods of dispensing. "gilt-e<"*--ed"_ law to tho guileless miner.  On" one occasion, fully equipped, he  made.bis appearance at Nelson Pdint'.<  and announced himself as prepared' to  , deal out justice with" a "liberal hand to  all who felt themselves in need of the  commodity.  Before his Honor promptly appeared  one Ramsliire. wiio wished to sue for  a writ of restitution and the recovery  of $500 damages, the defendant being  an individual who held adverse possession of a mining claim to which the  plaintiff felt  himself entitled.  The arrival of the wandering "J. r."  at the particular time in question served to prevent a personal encounter between the rival claimants, for they  were on the point of setting the question of ownership on the field of honor  when Bonner made his appearance on  the scene.  The two men then wisely decided to  let the law take its course and the suit  was duly,commenced, to the great dissatisfaction, however, of many of the  miners, who bad been accustomed to  see all difficulties settled among themselves, and therefore looked upon the  invasion of tbe migratory justice with  rather unfriendly- eyes.  J.ust here it should be stated that it  was one of the inflexible rules of Bonder's court that the fees must be paid.  That was what be held court for, he  said, and unless the costs of court were  ���������promptly liquidated there could be no  joy in life.for the 7 worthy <justice.   '' ������������������'  To make it absolutely certain that  he should not work in* vain, it was his  custom to decide against the, party  whom he judged was best able to pay  the costs. Taking bis somewhat peculiar view of things, good business principles would not permit him to do otherwise.  It so happened that as the Ramshire  case progressed his Honor began to  feel uneasy about the costs.  He had understood at the beginning  that the plaintiff had nothing, and he  ���������early deteijmined, therefore, to decide  In his favor, and thus throw the costs  upon the defendant. But something  caused him to fear that even from the  latter he would be unable to collect his  fees.      -      ".    '  He therefore made an order that the  defendant give bonds for costs of suit  and $500 damages, thinking thus to  insure himself against the possibility  of disappointment.  But this made the -defendant suspicious, and as he was not overanxious,  anyhow, to have the trial proceed, he  refused to furnish the required sureties. .  In the meantime the miners composing the large crowd which had.assembled to witness the trial had early become indignant at Bonner's methods,  and when the mandate in regard to the  bonds were issued their anger increased.  It was decided to appeal to the people at large, and a meeting was at once  called that this might be, done. After  considerable debate a committee was  appointed to wait upon the dignified  justice and request him to adjourn his  court sine die.  The members of the committee, which  consisted of J. H." Whitlock, chairman,  Dr. Vaughan, John Bass, Dr. Lewis  and 1-Jiram Walker, walked. into the  court and the chairman thus addressed the worthy magistrate:   .  "May it please your Honor, I have  been instructed by. the people of this  camp to say to you that we can find  no,precedent in law'by which the defendant in a civil suit can be compelled to give security either for .costs  or damages in advance of judgment."  "Have you finished, sir?" demanded  Bonner, adding, in a towering rage:  "This court would like to know w'horn  you represent in this tcase, sir?"  "I represent the people," coolly responded the spokesman of the miners.  "The people have nothing to do with  the case," shouted* Bonner.    "My ruling must-be complied .with or the par-"  ties will be bound over in contempt of,  court."' '7  . "If this court chooses to place itself  In contempt of the people," answered  the miners' champion, "it must take  the consequences. In the name of the  people I now command you to adjourn  this court and not to convene it again."  The uproar which followed was- tur  ner's behalf proved too great for the  valiant constable and he soon resigned.  Soon after he made his way to Victoria, where he became involved in a  difficulty with,an English sailor, whom  he killed, being in (due time banged  for the crime.-  Squire Bonner's own official career  was brought to an abrupt end upon  the formal organization of Plumas  County.  Then he took to literature, and in 1S5G  wrote a history of the life of James  Beokworth,- the noted mountaineer and  trapper of early days, the, volume  ���������abounding with, stories of mountain  life and adventure. Soon after publishing this book Bonner left- for the  southern portion of the State, and in  that congenial clime passed the rest of  bis eventful life in peace and quiet:  3������r  Morals of the Bathtub.  "It is very easy to find a direct connection between tbe cleanliness of a  people and their moral standard,''  writes Edward W. Bok, editorially, ol  "The Morals of' the Bathtub,"' in the  Ladies' Home Journal. "Of all the external aids to a moral life none is.se  potent as tidiness! An untidy man oi  woman soon becomes a moral sloven.  Let a man be careless of his surroundings, of, his companionships, of his  dress, his general appearance and ol  his bodily habits, and it is not long, before the same carelessness extends inta  the realm of his morals. We are al!  creatures of our surroundings, and.we  work and act as we feel. If a man lives  iii a home where carelessness or untidiness in his dress is overlooked, he very  soon goes from one inexactitude to another. He very quickly loses himself;  The moral fibre of a man, fine of itself,  can soon become coarse if the influence  of his external,surroundings is coarse.  I believe thoroughly in'7the effect of-a  man's dress.'and. habits .of person upon  his moral character. I do not say that  neatness of appearance and cleanliness  rifle and long continued.  fact,  was nearly supper time before something like order was restored. Then  tbe justice's voice was heard above the-  roar of the crowd ordering an adjournment until 10 o'clock the following  morning.  During the night, however, Bonner  evidently came to the conclusion that  discretion was the better part of yalor,  for long before tbe hour fixed for the  resumption of the trial the careful  judge was seen ascending the mountain, his legs dangling on either side of  a;"patient packiriule. -.7  7-He had a seat of justice in Onion  Valley, many feet higher in the air  than the river, and this he called his  "higher court," wmere lie sat to bear  appeals .'fromhis own decisions in the  lower tribunals.  Here he'- continued the case without,  the presence of the  defendant,    and  gave judgment, but was unable to enforce it or to collect the desired costs.  At another time Bonner undertook  to hold court at Rock Bar, but he there  so infuriated the miners that ne was  obliged to even more hastily adjourn  proceedings to bis higher court in Onion Valley.  Bonner sent his constable, Tom  Schooley, to Rich Bar in 1852, to serve  a summons and attachment on a miner  living there.  After considerable difficulty Schooley  found his man, and, having made  known his business, proceeded to read  his papers.  Tbe defendant was surrounded at  the time by a number of fellow miners, who, one and all, laid down their  implements and listened to the reading. When it was finished they told  the constable, in the expressive language of the miners, to "git."  After some hesitation he accepted  the advice, but, as he started away,  was foolish enough to drop some offensive remark. Instantly the miners  started for him with sticks and stones,  arid, it Is asserted, even to the present  day, that the very best record of a trip  up Rich Bar hill was that there and  then made by Tom Schooley.  The trials and tribulations attendant upon bis services in Squire Bon-  of person constitute the gentleman or  the man of honor. But I do say that  they are potent helps: And I' would  like to emphasize tbe importance of  this belief upon tbe" women of our  homes. For it- is given them to be an  important factor in these helps to the  betterment of the world's morality.'  * * * The man who makes a point of  keeping himself clean, and whose  clothes look neat, no matter how moderate of cost they may be, works better, . feels better, and is in every sense  a better business man than his fellow-  worker, who is disregardf ul of both his  body and dress, or either. He works'at  a distinct advantage. Tbe external  man unquestionably influences tbe internal-man. I would give far more for  the work done by a man who has the  invigorating moral tonic of a morning  bath and the feeling of clean linen than  I would for the work done by a man  who scarcely washes, and rushes intc  his clothes. * * * The time spent  upon our bodies is never wasted; on the  contrary, it Is time well invested. A  machine of metal and steel must be  clean before it can do good work. So,  too, the human machine. A disregard  of the body and disorder in dress soon  grow into moral slovenliness."  Should Sleep in Dark Rooms.  Children should be accustomed as  soon as possible to sleep in a dark room.  Unless they have learned to be afraid  of it the darkness is soothing to the  nerves, and the rest is more profound  and refreshing than when there is the  unconscious stimulation of light. It is  particularly desirable for children of  a nervous temperament that light  should be excluded, yet it is most often  the nervous, sensitive child whose imagination has been filled with fears of  the shapes the dark may hide.���������Ladies'  Home Journal.  When a girl comes home from school,  and is as nice and modest as a girl  who has not been away to school, it is  a sign that she has extra good sense.  The only way to take time easy is to  take it by the forelock.  ^c^^������^  '��������� *  j",  i   hi'  5 .1  ,������TlflOSB who have never been  I    down   to   their  last   dollar,   who  -**- have never been forced unwillingly to borrow, and have never pursued that process with the ^'private  bankers" of a large city, little appreciate the experience of those who have  worried by day and tossed sleepless-  ly by night, puzzling over a financial  problem uppermost in mind���������not a ratio of 1G to 1, but at a rate of 5 per cent,  a month safely clinched to the satisfaction of the money lender by a mortgage on the bit of property of the uneasy student of finance.  To all upon whom the disagreeable  necessity, for some reason or other,  has devolved, a day among the Shy-  locks of Chicago will be ,no novelty,  and they never forget the ordeal that  is'undergone.  To sit in a well-appointed office, the  furnishings of which bespeak opulence, and barter for a loan with men  hardened to withstand the distress of  others, who steel themselves against  any feeling of pity that might come  upon them, and calmly���������one almost  might say cruelly���������state in sharp yet  polite,, terms their rates for ! the use  of their gold, is an experience few people might choose to undergo, and yet,  day by day, the chroniclers of news announce the results of the relentless en-  gether with the first month's interest,,  is deducted from the gross sum. The  borrower receives generally about  ninety dollars, and is lucky if by some  hocus-pocus he has not been persuaded to pay an- average of 7 or 8 per  cent; for the ensuing six months.  These money sharks loan on all kinds  of personal property.. Occasionally  they cash an exceedingly well indorsed  note���������oftener they loan on watches,  diamonds, silverware. If money is advanced on a piano alone, they demand  possession," and here comes., in * their  new charge for "storage." Once a victim is in their clutches, they try to  keep him there, and when the first  'mortgage runs' out threaten' to foreclose and sell the security at a sacrifice, unless a liberal renewal fee is  paid.' Cases are known where in an  instance of this kind a bbrrower was  frightened and forced into paying'  what amounted to 38 per cent, a month.  When the shylock finds his customer  behind in his interest, he gives no  warning of his intentions. He sends  trusty, but unscrupulous employes,  who' seize the furniture, if such is the  security, hurry it- away into hiding,1  and when the owner has managed to  obtain the money to redeem it, he, is  either told that it has been sold according  to  law   to  satisfy   the  mbrt������  il   A  llillflttiill  yyyyyyyyfsfk  '$MyyyW&0.  ,������������������&:���������  i-a  i  ife  7������  Al  ���������hit\  m  "I WILL CHARGE TOU EIGHT PER CENT. INTEREST PER MONTH."  ergy of the usurers. A short time ago  an account was published of the commitment of a young man to an insane  asylum.- Friends and relatives of the  poor unfortunate did not hesitate to  assert that his mind had become unbalanced owing to his inability to meet  certain obligations due as interest on  borrowed money at the ruinous rate  of S per cent, per month.  When a customer approaches one  of the shylocks, he is made to feel  that money is scarce, that it is no favor to loan it even at exorbitant interest, and the money lender invariably shrugs liis shoulder dubiously,  even if the security offered is unquestionable. Should the applicant want  $100 on household furniture- the same  must have cost at least five times the  amount desired. He must execute a  cut-throat chattel mortgage upon it,  signed by his wife as well as himself;  he must insure it for half its value  and transfer the policy to the lender,  and the mortgage is so drawn that  the mortgagee practically owns the security, and can take possession of it,  if the borrower fails to pay interest  or principal to the minute agreed upon.  The usual charge advertised is 2%  per cent, a month. When the applicant comes to the point, he is informed that "this especial money belongs  to a client," who insists on double  that amount. Then the loaner must  make his com mission���������there is. besides  the insurance charges, a fee for drawing up the mortgage, a further fee  for recording it. and this amount, to-  gage, or is compelled to settle.on a.  basis of foreclosure charges, moving  charges, storage .charges, custodian's  charges, release charges, until a review of the cost of the entire transactions shows that he has very nearly  paid cent for cent for the use of his  money for less than a year.  "iXX-  An Indian C jntortionist.  There is an Indian 3*oga entertaining  the people of London now who is said  to be worth crossing the sea to behold.  He is a Brahman, according to one of  his admirers and celebrants; one of  the old, old sect of cave worshipers,  whose ancestors were practically intelligent men in times when ours ran  wild in the woods and stained themselves with wood. His elaborate contortions take the shapes of flowers,  fruits, animals and even buildings, and  he is the master of no fewer than'  eighty-four definite postures, every one  of which would be a painful impossibility to any ordinary contortionist.

Quite a surprise awaited the guests who  accepted the kind invitation of Mr. Hall to  the Chinese Mission House, on New Year's  eve, \n the splendid entertainment given by  Mr. Hall's boy3 as he effectionately calls  them. The hall had' been very tastefully  deoorated for the occasion, with Chinese  lanterns and artificial flowers made by themselves, and the programme consisted of a  musical treat in the first place, in which the  Chinese converts took a prominent part,  singing well known hymns in both their  own and the English language. Mrs. Jeffs,  Mr. and Mrs. Logan and Miss Orchard also  contributed in a very pleasing manner. All  present numbering about forty, were then  asked to sit down to table, where the viands  were ot such quality, trariety and abundaac^  as is seldom excelled in onr own banquets.  It is needless to say that the company  present did ample justice to the splendid' feast,  which, a3 Mr. Hall explained, had been given by his boys entirely out of gtatitude  for  the teachings 1 hey  had recemd  fr. m time  to time.    During   the  evening "the  history  and progress of the Mission were  reviewed  and the satisfactory results cou'd^be noted  in the number of co "vert-i pe<se:u,   and   thi  general look of   intelligence   visible  in   tho  countenances a contrast to the dull, stobd.  a.id expressionless f'aee of the  aver-ige��������� Chi-,  naman.

C. MuUo.-a'.d,    Miss  Orchard,  Mrs. L'jgan,, Dr.   Lawrence   and  others.    All were   loud  in   their   praise for  the   handsome  entertainmeut  provided'.  Some more hymns  by  the boy3 under the  leadership of Mr. Hall, brought a well spent  ���������vening to a close.at; eleven  o'clock.    Mr.  Hall,���������the missionary in   charge���������is a   very  quiet, unasumiug, energetic  servant  of   his  Master, and has won the confidence and   respect of the European residents of the place,  as well as of the Chinese   among   whom   he  labours.    Tho brunt of the battle necessari-  falls upon   his  shoulders,   but  he  receives  able assistance from all the afore mentioned  besides    others     whom    space    does    not  permit of  noting  and  he  gladly welcome!  all who take an interest in the work.
