"What certainly is one of the most valuable pianos in the world was made in 1808  by order of the Emperor Napoleon 'Bona-  Sarte, who presented it to the Empress  osephine. It was stolen during the sacking of the Tuileries, was afterwards sold  at a public auction and is now in the possession of a-great firm of pianoforte makers, Messrs. ( Erard.

His Pet Duck Columbia, Who Won tht  Hearts ofthe Hungry, Soldiers and Saved  Her "Life���������His Part In. the Escape of th*  Empress Eugenie. ,   *  When a party of visitors called at Dr.  Evans* house, near the Champs Elysees,  in Paris, some years ago, they heard  sounds from beneath the white marble'  stops where they stood as they rang the  bell, and directly alterward Dr. Evans  emerged from below in his shirt sleeves  covered with cobwebs, bub not in the least  disconcerted by being caught in such a  guise. He laughingly explained that he  was in search of his pet duck, Columbia,  which could not be found. , As he 6eemed  much distressed, his visitors followed him  through tho garden, peering hero and  there, but woro surprised at  pleasure with which he told the story of  the duck.  It seemed that when very young the  duck showed a strongi affection for Mrs.  Evans, following her about tho garden  and even into the house, where she perched  on the back of Mrs. Evans' chair during  meals and made herself quite at home in  the drawing room. The bird proved so intelligent and affectionate that Mrs. Evnna  devoted considerable time to;teaching her  different tricks and the proper manner.a  for police society till the duck finally became an acknowledged' member of the  family, much admired by all who camo to  the houso.  During the commune, when Paris wi*.***  starving, this adored'duck suddenly dipap-  penred, and great wasl the grief in the  Evans household. ��������� .Rewards were oft'eivd  and every effort made to discover tho thief,  but all to no purpose, and tho family  mourned the loss of the duck with sincere  grief,' trembling as to the probable fate of  , their pet: Sorao months afterward, while  entertaining a number of, friends at dinner, a servant whispered with much excitement that a soldier was outside who  said the duck had been .found. The good  news ran around the table. The man,was  brought into the room, and there perched  on his shoulder was Columbia, much bedraggled as to plumage and far from being  the sleek and haughty'bird of the past.  She blinked her eyes in the candlelight  and then, suddenly recognizing Mrs.  Evans', voice as the hostess called her  name, gave a joyful quack and'flapped  across the flower bedecked table to Mrs.  Evans' bare 6houlder, where she nestled,  rubbing her head' lovingly against hei  mistress' cheek. i  Then the history of the previous months  was explained. It seemed that, the, garden gate having been, left ajar one day,  the soldier spied Columbia waddlingcom-  fortably along the path, fat, sleek and to  his hungry eyes the embodiment of a  goodly meal. In a'trice he had the'duck  beneath his coat and was speeding down  the side street, stifling as best he could the.  indignant quacks of his prey, but on arriving at. the barracks and being set down  in the midst of the men Columbia straightway began her programme of tricks-  waltzing, bowing, kissing, etc., ending by  nestling lovingly aga'<T3t her captor's neck'  with a gurglo of satisfaction.' Her faith in  human kindness saved her life. The men  one and all voted to remain hungry rather  than eat so delightful a creature, a^d Columbia was their pet from that hour.  His story finished, the soldier received a  substantial reward, and all drank his  health with much laughter, while Columbia nodded approval from Mrs. Evans'  shoulder.  As Dr. Evans ceased speaking the, heroine of the tale emerged from beneath a lilac bush and came waddling across the  lawn to meet the visitor, stopping now  and then to bow deeply to her master with  much dignity. When she was quite near,  Dr. Evans began to whistle a waltz. Columbia stopped, then began to dance, keeping perfect time to the music, and surely  nothing was ever more irresistibty ludicrous than the awkward gravity with1  which she went through her steps, with  head cocked coquettishly on one side and  neck outstretched.  The host then led his visitors to the  house, stopping on the way to show his  aviary. When they entered the largo hall,  filled with palms, divans and eastern  lamps hanging from tho groined stone ceiling, he called attention to a small brasa  tablet set in the floor at the foot of the  stairs.  "It is there," he 6aid, "where the Empress Eugenie first learned she was no  longer an empress. She was a brave  woman."  From there he led the way to a long  gallery opening out on the garden and  filled with beautiful things. The walla  were hung with portraits of many of the1  crowned heads of Europe given to Dr.  Evans by the originals.  Before the visitors left ho showed them  the room up stairs where Eugenie dressed  for her flight. From a drawer ho drew out  the shabby plaid shawl, old fashioned  scoop bonnet and lace veil which she had  worn and which sho sent back afterward  as souvenirs. Dr. Evans said as he folded  them away: j  "Only twice in . my life have I actually !  known  fear.    The  first was when   I pro- ]  posed to my wife.    The' second was when j  I told the guard at the gate of  Paris that  I had a poor, mad woman with me whom  I was taking to her friends.    As bo knew  me he was not suspicious,  bub if he  had  so much as asked the enipress to. raise bar  veil neither of  our lives would  havo been.'  worth a 5 franc piece.    I  could  feel, her  trembling beside me and her breath coming in faint gasps, bub just then sho fainted, which'was the most sensible thing she  could have done.'.'    "  Tho conversation turned on the beauties  r The Wise Butterfly.,  King Solomon was ' one day strolling  outside the, palace, when he heard a butterfly say to his wife, "With- one stroke  of my wing I could knock down this  entire palace." Without waiting to hear  more King Solomon returned,to the palace, and summoning his councillors and  his officers of state he ordered the arrest  of the butterfly at once. Pale and trembling the butterfly was brought ., before the  king. Tho king charged him with the  treasonable remark. The butterfly pleaded guilty. "But, O great king," went on  the butterfly, "you are a married man  yourself! Can you not guess why I said  it? -My wife was unusually insubordinate  this morning, and ic was ..necessary, in  order to maintain any sort of discipline,  that ,1 prove . ito her how great was ,my  power. That, is ,why I said it, great king,  not , from treasonable motives, but ,.in  order to maintain my marital authority."  The story goes that the king dismissed  the butterfly wicnout even so much as-a  reproof. ' The story also goes that when,  theevident * ^aQ butterfly returned to his wife and she  asked, "Well, und what did the king  want?" he replied.

It states facts similar to those of  many cases here, all of which are well  known to our citizens.  It is refreshing to find such a prominent  and respected clergyman as Rev. Mr. Elliott  taking so pronounced a step as he has done,  in publicly recommending Dodd's Kidney  Pilis. His experience with this wonderful  medicine is exactly similar to that of  Aurora people There is no medicine to  be procured that can approach Dodd's  Kidney Pills, which never fail to cure.  Bright's Disease and Diabetes, so long  said to be incurable, are. cured by Dodd's  Kidney Pills as easily as a puff of wind  blows out a candle flame. Thoy have been  used in this town by scores of people who  were given up to die by their doctors, and  who surprised and delighted their friends  by their rapid-and thorough recovery after  having used these Heaven-sent pills.  There is no medicine on , earth that can  compare with. Dodd's Kidney Pills for  Rheumatism; Lumbago, Lime Back,Hoart  Disease, Paralysis, Gout, Gravel, Stonein  Bladder, Urinary Trouble.-*,'Blood'Impurities, Female Weakness and all other Kidney Diseases.

' When the white man pumps  it to make it work it screams. It comos  from somewhere, but no one knows from  whence.  Of a steam traction engine, seen when  the driver was oiling it, the Matabele said  that "it was a huge animal which had the  fever very badly, because the white man  poured in medicine at so many parts of its  ���������body."  .'Homo is that dear place where we art,  hot afraid to break crackers into our oyster'  soup.

"  year 1895, however, it was decided by the  ruling house of Stollberg and the prosperous Harz Tourist Club to erect a tower  ha /ing the shape r of a mammoth cross.  The structure, was erected at a cost of  $13,600, to which the family of Stollberg  contributed ,$6,250, the remainder being  raised by the' Harz Club from its members.    .,  Thousands of tourists havo climbed   to  the top since its   completion. "The   view  from the highest   platform  is one of rare  soeniq  grandeur.    A   panorama unfolds,  which, with the exception of the Brocken,  made so famous.by   Goethe   in  Faust, is  unequalled by that of   no   other observation tower in Europe. Far in the distance  is beheld the proud outline  of   the Kyff- ,  haenser monument, with   its stately and ]  masive pinnacle.,   Beyond that,one   get a  rare view of the Kyffflaenser  mountains,  at whose   base' are   the .rich and verdant  fields through which, like a silver thread,  the river Aue flows. Many thriving cities  and, charmingly   situated   villages,  surrounded by   green   fields and valleys, are  near. by.    The   conical   outlines of "Old  Brocken,"   so   beautifully   described   by  Heine,   towers   into   tho   sky   above his  smaller contemporaries.   At twilight   the  tourist beholds from the top of the tower  only dimly, the   indistinct  and   obscure  outlines of valleys, forests and the   ruins  of former'castles',   the   remnants of chivalry,: romance:'; and   of former Teutonic '  glory.

The herculean efforts made to  keep up these large circulations are evidence of their instability, and the vast  sums of money spent by the "groat"  dailies in advertising themselves show that  the demand for them is fictitious. These  journals in their vaulting ambition for  greatness have o'erleapt themselves and  fallen into the ditch.

TO  T*HE   EI/ECTOBS   OF   CQJiLOX.  DISTRICT,  Gentlemen;  Since my announcement  at the request of a number of electors of  the district as an Independent candidate  for -jour representative in the legislature, circumstances have changed, which  necessitates a modification of my own  position.. "Some of my professed supporters have taken steps, as I am informed lo" bring out an out-and-out opposition candidate to the government, thus  forcing an issue, I was inclined to avoid,  but must now meet I am also influenced  by the clear and satisfactory explanation  made by the Hon. J. H. turner of his  financial and railway "policy, in his  address here on June 2d.'' So far, as the  district is concerned, in which I am interested, he is evidently disposed to meet  its just demands in a fair spirit The  Nanaimo-Comox trunk road is to be  completed this season and the large force  now at work upon it justifies the belief  that this will be done. The old road  leading out of Cumberland, and across  the Big Meadow, formerly- known as the  Big Swamp is to remain open in defer-  ennce to the wishes of the people; and I  am satisfied all real grounds Which exist  for complaint locally, have arisen from a  want - of proper representation to the  government, owing to not having a resident member who is necessarily cognig  ant ofthe condition of locdl affairs. I  have therefore concluded after mature  consideration and consultation with  friends and supporters, who approve of  my course, to stand as a government  candidate. This is rendered, the more  easy from the open letter ofthe Premier  in which "he says he wishes the people to  vote for or against the government, not  as Liberals or Conservatives, but as  British Columbians. There are no Dominion politics involved.'*   It,'is simply a  1 j i  question of business administration, and  I prefer to trust Provincial affairs in  the hands of Mr. Turner and, such colleagues as he may select to aid him, than  to the untried men who are trying to  turn him out that they may get in.  In making this announcement I desire  it to be understood that I do not intend  to be the tool of anybody, but will so far  as I am able, if elected, protect all local  interests! alike, and act according to my  own judgement and conscience. I shall,  however, do my fightiner within the  government ranks, aiding it to avoid  mistakes, and so shape its course as to  subserve the best interests of this district  and Province.  On this  pUtform I respectfully  solicit  your support.  Faithfully yours,  ROBERT LAWRENCE.  >.jn. i..n i   wh.ij   ��������� ���������'  '  ������MWM  m MERCHANTS' BANK 01 HALIFAX  Espimait & toa-inm By J  Incorporated 186g  Capital paid np, $1500,000 :/; Reserve Fund, $1175,000  Head Office, Halifax, N.

It offers  greater attraction than all the arts heretofore introduced in popular form; for while  ,' it answers fully the requirement* of mechan  ' ical taste, it' offers constant opportunities  for the exercise of intellectual qualities.  Since the introduction of the hand came-  'ran, picture making has been so ayinplytied  that the possibilities  of photography rae  **' brought within tbe reach of all.   The ama������  teur photographer is now found among persons in nearly every walk of life.    The bus-  ��������� iness and professional man finds photography' a valuable assistant as  well as a pleas-  '  aat recreation.  To tub Tourist -  whether he travels by rail, boat/ or ever  popular bicycle, it affords a never ending  source of enjoyment.. To record with, accuracy the events aud scenes ot his tour is an  enjoyment at "the time, and a greater one  ��������� when he sees the finished phototogrsph.  Tew Spoetsmam    <*  will find the camera a valuable  companion.  Pictures of camp-life will prove intensely  * interesting to the friends at home, who are  thus enabled to catch'a glimpse of life in  tbe woods. Then, too, they are not " fish  stories " when you can show a photo of the  " catch;' A camping outfit,is not complete  without a camera. Surely there are no  more pleasant souvenirs of vaeationrambles  ' than ."photographs made' by oneself of the  various scenes and incidents connected with  one's outing. Many recollections are thus  ��������� preserved and the history of the pleasant  . holiday is brought to mind by a glance at  the Aniseed picture long afterwards. In  this district of ours we sen boast of a good  many amateurs and if fomeofour business  men woild undertake to handle a good line  of photographic, goods'"we' are oertain this  pleasant pastime would be taken up by a  great many more.  -.    -       " -      MAO-  SPANIARDS ARE GUERRILLAS  The Spanish tendency to irregular warfare is largely hereditary.  For 800 years the Spaniards were  in constant strife with the Moors,  whom they conquered at last. During  these   eight   centuries' there  < .were* noYregular campaign?, but  both sides, as a rule, split up into  'separate bands', whose, only object  was to continually harass and  eventually exterminate the other  side.    One of the  great disadvan-  ' tages under which tbe Spaniards  will fight will consist of the fact  that they will meet their superiors  in their favorite mode of warfare.  Spaniards have invariably succeeded as guerrillas up to the present  time. If they won no great battles, they at lease held their own  ground or prevented the enemy  from occupying it. In Cuba, how-^  ever, things have been different**  The Spaniards met their equals if  not their superiors in the insurgents. They have uniformly been  driven back, and in all of the bush  fighting have been regularly  whipped.  "TRAMWAY COMPANY INCORPC.  RATION  ACT," AND ABCEND-  BLENTS THEREOF.

"Belknap proved the right man in the  right place, and was soon   admitted into  , the Coterie. Next to come under the  favorable notice of Ezras, was John Burrill, who had come oyer from England  bringing with him some ill-gotten gains,  ^nd who set himself up in New York as  a- swell cracksman.  "Now, Burrill, tho English boor,   had  an ambition. In this easy-going America,  " he hoped'in some way to build himself  into an aristocrat, and to 'shine as one of  the lords of the land. To this end he  hoarded his share of .all the spoils, and,  adding it to the sum brought from England, he began- 'to find himself a rich  man. ,    .  "Meantime, Mr. Lamotte   had   specu-  ' lated a little too freely; he had built a  mansion, and built his factories. He had  been living like a prince, and some of his  late, ventures had failed.

Many have  Rendered at the process by which it has  come to pass, and for the 'first -time in  public place I'< state the three causes.  Many,years ago a young, man Who has  since become eminent' in hfs profession  Vina then studying law in a distant oity.  He came to mo and said that for lack of  funds ho must .stop his studying unless  through stenography I would give him  sketches of sermons, that he might by  tne sale of' them���������<;secure means*, for ths  completion of his education.    I positively  \declined, because it seemed to me an impossibility, 'but  aft'or - some   months had  < ,passed, and I had reflected upon the great  sadness for such a   brilliant , young man'  to be defeated   In .his "ambition 'for the  - legal profession, I- undertook to serve him,  ot course free of charge. Within three  peeks'there came a. request for those  stenographic reports from, many parts'of  the continent. 1,'*- \ t ���������*<. *," '-  , Time passed on, and soma ' gentlemen  of my own profession, evidently t thinking  ^that there was i hardly room for them and  ���������or myself , in , this   continent,' begun to  assail me, and became so violent in ,their  assault   that   the   chief    newspapers   of  America put special correspondents in my  church Sabbath ;,by Sabbath to take' down  , such reply as I might make. -I never made  * reply, except once for'about three minutes,  "but thoso correspondents could not waste  tiheir time, and so   they   telegraphed   ths  'sermons to their particular papers.   After  > awhile Dr. Louis-Klopsch >,of New York  '���������'systematized the work,' into' n . syndicate  until through   that   and other syndicates  he' has put the discourses * week' by week  before more   than   20,000,000   people   on  ��������� both sides 'tho ' sea.f   Thoro   have been so  many guesses on   this   subject/ 'many of  of Eurqpe declared that the .King of  Naples had made jt unsafe for. him to  wrifea on' any subject save natural history.,  Austria cpuW not bear Kossuth's journalistic pen pleading for the redemption of  Hungary. Napoleon I., wanting to keep  his iron heol on the ne"ck of nations, said  that the newspaper was the regent of'  kings and the only safe place to keep an  editor wa*s Am prison. But the great battle  for the freedom of the press was fought  in the court-rooms of England and the  United Sta-tas before this century began,  when Hamilton made his great speech in  behalf ofthe freedom of J. Peter Zengei"s  CStissette in America, and when Erskine  made his great speech in behalf of tho  freedom to   publish , Paine's   "Rights of  Man" in England.' Those we*������6the Marathon and t������he Thermopylae where the  battle was fought which decided the free-  dole of the press in England and Amei'icaj  and all Sbe powers Of earth and hell will  never again bo able to put upon the printing,press the handcuffs and the hopples of  "literary and political despotism.  It -is remarkable that Thomas Jefferson^  who wrote tho Declaration of Independ-  ence, also wrote these words,. "If I hao* to  choose between, a government without  newspapers and newspapers without' a  government, I would   prefer the latter."  Stung ,by, some -new fabrication in   print,    ^    wo come to write or speak about an "un- 'g^. na*ig  a\\ the itinerant "bores who corns'  field   and   drasvso.   clear   acuoss,   and the  newspaper gathers up the sheaves, setting:,  dowrq one sheaf, on tha breakfast table in-  the shape of a mornSag  newspaper,   and  putting down- another   sheaf   on   the tea  table in the shape of   an   evening newspaper, arid that   man , who neither reads  nor- takas a newspaper would   be  a Curiosity,    what vast progress since the days  w.hen   -Cardinal   Wolsey     declared    that  either the printing   press   must go dpwn  or the ^church   of' God   must go down to  this time, when the   printing  press   and,  the pulpit aro  in   hundreds   of   glorious  combination and alliance.  , Trials of tlie Editor. '  One of the great trials of this news*  paper profession is the fact that they are  compelled tor see more* of the shams of the  world than any other profession. Through  every newspaper office, day by day, go the  weakness of the world, the vanities that  want to be puffed, the revenges that want  to be wreaked, all the mistakes that want  to be corrected, all the dull speakers who  want to be thought eloquent, all tho  meanness that wants to get its wares  noticed gratis in the editorial columns in  order to save the tax of the advertising  column, all the men who want to be set  vighc who never were-right, all the craok  brained philosophers, with story as long  as their hair and as gloomy as  their fin<  .bridled printing press." , Our new book  ground up in unjust criticism, we come  to write or speak about the "unfair printing press." Perhaps through our own indistinctness of utterance we are reported  as saying jus* the opposite < of , what we  did say, and there is a small riot of semicolons and'hyphens and commas, and wo  come to write or talktaabuciibe-;?' " "  to stay five minutes and ston an hour.  From the editorial and reportorial rooms  all tho follies   aud   shams   of   tho world  " are* seen day by day, and the temptation  is to believe neither in God,"man, nor  woman. It is no surprise to me that in  your profession there are 'some  skeptical  [ men.    I   only   wonder   that  you beiievo  anything.    Unless an editor or a reporter  Bering printing* press,'!   or   wo lake up a   has in his,present or in  his early home a  newspaper full of' social   scandal   and of ' ni0del 0f earnest character,'or  he   throw  cases of divorce,   and   we   write , or,talk   himself upon the upholding grace of Gpd,  them inaccurate, that I now 'tell* the true  story. Lh'ave not improved the oppdrtun-  - ity as I ought, .but*; I feel the time has  oome when as a matter of common". jus:  tico to the newspaper pross I should make  this statement in a sermon commomora-  tive of the two thousandth full publication of sermons and''religious addresses,  saying nothing of fragmentary reports,  ^yhich would run up into many thousands  more.  Nothing but Points.  ; i  r There was one incident that I might  mention in this connection, showing how  an insignificant event might influonce us  tor a lifetime. Many years ago on a Sabbath morning on my way to church in  Brooklyn a representative of a prominent  newspaper met me and said, "Are you  going to give us any points to-day?" I  Said, "What do you mean by 'points?' "  Ho replied, "Anything we can remember.'' I said to myself, "We ought to-be  making 'points' all the time in our pulpits and not deal in platitudes and inanities." That one interrogation put to ma  that morning started4n mo tho   desire of  Siaking points all the time   and nothing  ut points.  And now how can I more appropriately  commemorate the two'thousandth publi-  iaation than by speaking of tho newspaper press as an ally of the pulpit and  mentioning some of the trials of newspaper men?  The newspaper is the great educator of  the nineteenth century. There is no force  compared with it. It is book, pulpit, platform, forum, all in ono. And there is not  an interest���������religious, literary, commercial, scientific, agricultural or meohanioal  ���������that is not within its grasp. All our  churches and schools and colleges and  asylums and art galleries feel the quaking  of the printing press.  The institution of newspapers aroso in  Italy. In Venice the first newspaper was  published, and monthly, during the time  Venice was warring againstt Solyman II.  In Dalrnutia, it was printed for the purpose of giving military and. commercial  information to the Venetians. .The first  newspaper published in England was in  1688 and culled the English Mercury.  !Who can .estimate the political, scientific,:  commercial and religious revolutions  Roused up in England for many years  past by tho" press?. .  The first attempt at this institution in  France was in 1691, by a physician, who.  published the News, for the amusement  and': health of his patients. The French  nation understood fully how to appreciate  this power. So early as in 1820 there were  in Paris 169 journals. But in tho United  States tho'newspaper has come.to unlimited sway. Though, in 1775 there wore but  87 in the whole country, tho number of  published journals is. now counted by  thousands,, and to-day���������we ,��������� may as well  acknowledge it as not���������tho religious and  'secular newspapers are the great educators  of. the country.  Power of tho Press.  But, alas, through what struggle the  newspaper has come to its present develop-  haentl Just as soon��������� as it "began to demon-*  fctrato its power superstition and tyranny  'shackled it. There is nothing that despotism so much fears and hates as tha  fcrin-ting press. A great writer in the south  about a -"filthy, scurrilous printing press."  But this morning I'ask you to consider  the immeasurable'arid everlasting-, blessing or a good newspaper.  ,   * \   -i Next to the Bible.       * /    ���������* ,  *" I find no difficulty   in   accounting' for *  the   world's advance. ,What has made the  change'?

In the clanking of the printing   pross as  the sheets fly out I hear the   voice of ths  Lord Almighty   proclaiming   to   all the  dead nations of the earth, "Lazarus, come  forth!" and to   the  retreating   surges of  darkness, "Let there be light I" In many  of our  oity   newspapers, * professing   no  more than secular information, there have  appeared during the past   80   years some  of tho grandest appeals in   behalf of religion and some of the most effective interpretations of   God's   government  among  the nations.      t  Two Kinds of Newspapers. '  There are only two kinds of newspapers  ���������the ono good, very good, the other bad,  very bad.    A   newspaper   may< be started  with an undecided character,  but after it  has been going   on   for  years  everybody  finds out just what it is,   and   it   is very  good or it is very   bad.    The   one   paper >  *a the embodiment  of   news,   the ally of  virtue, the foe of crime,    the   delectation  of elevated, taste, the mightest agency on  earth for making tho world   better.    The  other paper is a   brigand   among   moral  forces; it  is  a beslimer of   reputation, it  is the right arm of death   and   hell, it is  the mightiest agency in the   universe for  making * the   world   worse   and battling  against  the   cause   of   God,   the one an  angel of intelligence and mercy, the other  a fiend of darkness.    Between   this arch  angel and this fury is   to   be   fought the  great battle which is to decide tho fate of  tho world.    If   you have any doubt as to  which is to be victor, ask the prophecies,  ask God; the chief batteries   with   which  he would vindicate the right and thunder  down* the wrong   are   now   unlimbered  Tho great Armageddon of   the nations is  not to be fought with   swords,    but with  steel   pens; not   with   bullets,   but with  typo; not with carinpn, but with   lightning perfecting presses,   and the Sumters,  and the Moultries, and the Pulaskis, and  the Gibraltars of that conflict will bo tha  editorial   and   reportorial   rooms   of our  great newspaper establishments.    Men of  tho press, God has put a moro stupendous  responsibility upon . you   than   upon any  other class of persons.    What long strides  your profession has made in influence and  power since the   day when   Peter Sheffer  invonted cast metal type,, and becauso two  books were   found   just   alike   they were  ascribed to the   work   of    the   devil, and  books were printed on . strips'jjof bamboo,'  and Rev. Jesse Glover originated the first'  American printing   press, and   the   common council of   New    York,    in    solemn  resolution,    offered   $200    to any  printer  who., would .-come    there   and   livo.'alid  when the speaker of t'he House of Parliament in England announced with   indig-  natiou that the public prints   had   recognized some of their tioings, until in   this  day, when we have in this country many  newspapers   sending   out   copies   by the  billion.   Tho press and the telegraph have  gone down into the   same   great Jaarvest  field to reap, and   the   telegraph . aaya to  the   newspaper,   "I'll   rake,    while   you  bind," and tho iron aeethof the telegraph  are set down at one end   of   the   harvest  he may make temporal and  eternal shipwreck.    ,'  Demand* of the Public.  'Another, great   trial of the .newspaper  profession ,is   inadequate  compensation.  ,Since the days of . Hazlitt  and * Sheridan,  and John   Milton,   and, the  wailiugs of  Grub street,".London,   literary   toil, with  very few exceptions, has not been properly requited. ���������When Oliver   Goldsmith received a friend in his house, ho   (the author) had to sit on the  window,   because  there was only one chair.   Linnaeus sold  his .splendid work   for  a  ducat     Defoe,  the author of. so many volumes, died'penniless. The learned Johnson dined behind  a screen   because   his   cloches   were   too  shabby to 'allow   him   to   dine with the  gentlemen whoYon the other   side of th������i  screen, were applauding his works     And  so on down to the present   time   literary  toil,is a great struggle  for 'bread.    Tha  world seems to   have a grudge  against as  man who, as they say, gets his  living by"  his wits, and the day laborer says to   the  man of literary toil,   "You   come   down'  .here and*shove   a   plane  and   hammer a  shoe last and break cobblestones and earn  an honest living as I do instead of sitting  there in idleness scribbling 1"   But   there  are^no   harder, worked   men   in   all the  earth than the newspaper   people   of 'this  country.*  It**iis -not* a   matter of/hard  timos; it ,is * characteristic   at all-time's.'  Men have a better appreciation   for  'that  'which appeals   to   the   stomach than for  that which appeals to   the   brain     They  have no idea of the immense financial and  intellectual exhaustion of   tho newspaper  press.   Oh, men of   the press, it will be a  great help to you, if when you get   horns  late at night,   fagged   out   and   nervous  with your work,   you   would   just kneel  down'and commend   your   case   to God,  who has watched all the   fatigues   of the  day and the night, and who has promised  to bo   your   God   and   tho   God   of your  children forever!  Another great   trial   of   the newspaper  profession is the diseased appetite for unhealthy   intelligence.      You   blamo   the  i newspaper press for giving suc'i prominence to murdors and   scandals.    Do   yon  suppose' that so many papers   would give  prominence to those   things   if the people  did riot demand them?, If   I go   into tho  meat market of a foreign oity, and I find  that the butchers   hang   up   on the most  conspicuous hooks meat that   is   tainted,  > while the meat that is   fresh   and savory  is put away without any   special   care, I  oome to the conclusion that the people of  that city love tainted  meat.     You   know  very well that if the great mass of people  in this country goc hold   of   a newspaper  and there are in it no runaway   matches,  no broken up families,   no defamation of  men in high position, they pronounce the  paper insipid.   They say, "It is shooking-  ly dull to-night."    I   believe   it is ono of  the trial's of the newspaper press that the  people   of   this   country   demand   moral  slush instead of healthy and    intellectual  food.    Now,   you are a respectable   man,  an intelligent   man,   and   a paper comes  into your hand.    You   open it, and there  are three columns  of   splendidly written  editorial,   recommending     some     moral  sentiment   or   evolving   some    scientific  theory.    In   the   next   column there is a  miserable,   contemptible     divorce   case.  Which do you read first? You dip into the  editorial   long   enouah   to   say,    "Well,  that's very ably written,"   and" you read  'the-divorce case from the "long   primer"  type at the top to tho "nonpareil" typo at  the bottom, and then   you  ask your wife  if she has read itl Oh, it is only a case of  supply and demand!   Newspaper men aro  not   fools.    Thoy   know what you want,  and they give it to you.   I believe that if  the church and the world bought nothing  but pure, honest,   healthful   nowspapers,  nothing but pure, honest ,and   healthful  newspapers would, be ���������published.*;   If   you  should gather all the. editors and    tho reporters of this country in one   great convention, and ask of-them what kind  of a  paper they would prefer to publish, I believe they would   unanimously   say, "We  would   prefer   to -publish    an. .'.elevating  paper."  So long as there is an iniquitous  demand there   will be an iniquitous supply.    I make no apology for u  debauched'  newspaper,- but I aiu   saying these things  in order to divide the   responsibility    between those   who   print   and   those who  read.

At this juncture one of   tho druggists.of  Napanee,who had previously-compounded  many prescriptions, recommended   a trial  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.   It was thefl'  the first of June when we purchased three  boxes   and   commenced   the   treatment.

His strength , returned with  renewed vigor, and all signs of muscular  rheumatism had vanished and he steadily  regained a strong healthy color, and was  able to do considerable light work in the  harvest'field, such as riding the mower,  reaper or horse-rake. He has since attended school regularly and though a year has  elapsed, he has had no symptoms." Mrs.  Smith spoken to about the matter readily  'concurred in all that had been said relative to her son's case, and was very decided in *her views regarding the health  giving properties contained in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a blood  builder and nerve restorer. They supply  tho blood with its life and health-giving  properties, thus driving disease from the  system: There are numerous pink colored  imitations, against which the .public is  warned.

Viojr- of the War.    v  TheT-***, is a strong complaint   by  some newspapers, and others   also,  because    the     Hispano-American  war is not pushed more vigorously.  We do not suppose the war is being  waged by either nation just for the  gratification of individuals.    Spain  is persuing a   Fabian   policy   because it paust be concede^, it is   to  her interest to do so. \ And the United States when the war commenced had only a very small standing  army; and though she ha^L the material out of which to make a vast  army, yet, it necessarily   requires  tipaeto accomplish such   a   task.
