Last Wednesday the coal train started  out from No.5 shaft and when near the  lower end of the Big Meadow, the brake-  man jumped off to close the switch, which  was open. The train going fuse he was  unable to reach it; the engineer signalled  to slow up���������put on the brakes���������not  knowing the brakeman had left the train.  As the signal'was not heeded, and know-  "the switch'was open,hejumped in-time to  save   himself.    At that  point   the  road'  crosses a small stream or ravine,   spaned -  by a smaU bridge.    Into  this  the engine  crashed, breaking ties and badly splinter- ���������  ing   others.

On Friday the repairs had  been made, <ind the. palace car conveyed  ihe paasanxers as usual to' the-,wharf."' In  explanation if may be said that the regular brakeman took in the excursion, and  a yqung boy was acting in his  place. Instead of putting on the brakes,  to slow down, he jumped off and ran as  hard as he could to reach the switch, but  the tram out-ran him.

According to all the evidence, the  Chicago negro who has been sentenced  to 100 years' imprisonment for burglary deserves to live out his full term.  If Nevada only follows up the advantage she has gained we see 110 ve.-i-  .60U why that State, uhouid not capture the fly-by-night Jivorc'������ industry  also.!'

The women do not possess full suffrage in Kansas, but they secured more  public offices in the last election than  did the women of Utah or Colorado���������'  twenty county superintendences of  public instruction, and all the offices,  ���������from Mayor to Chief of Police, in two  cities.  Judge Ewing, 'of Chicago, the other  day, in sentencing a burglar who stood  convicted on five counts, imposed a  '���������penalty of twenty years' imprisonment  on each of them, and directed that as  soon as the prisoner had completed one  ���������term he should begin another. The  'burglar, whose crimes were peculiarly  desperate and atrocious,' will doubtless agree that there is a great deal,  of vitality in Chicago justice, after all.  j The vast crop of corn is perplexing  fthe Nebraska farmers, because it is  difficult to take care of so much of even  a good thing. But with the cribbing  and the shipping it.is keeping all hands  employed now, and when the -returns  come in there will be compensation in the feasting and frolic which  properly follow an abundant harvest.  ;The corn crop is a great boon, because  it gives employment to a vast ariny of  iwilling hands in harvesting and shipping. The year just closed was a good  one for Nebraska, but.the coming one  promises even better results.  The statistics of crime in 1S96 do not  improve the reputation of the past year  -as a rather dark period in our history,  though the record is not altogether un-  tfavorableby comparison with previous  years. There were 122 legal executions during the year and.. 131 lyneh-  ings, which is a rather startling commentary on the methods by which the  'law is executed and defied in this country. That neither lynching������ nor legal  executions serve to check the crime  of murder is shown by the statement  that there were no less than 10,052.  murders committed during the year.  This is a shocking exhibit.  A token of world-wide esteem should  ���������be presented to the man who it is alleged has invented a device for opening soft boiled eggs in such a way  that the contents can be transferred to  a cup without the previous burning of  the fingers and the dropping of the  shell with its contents. A soft boiled  ,egg is always too hot to handle without breaking several scriptural mandates and it always insists on escaping from the fingers at the critical mo-  unent when its fall means a liberal application of egg on the outside of the  shell. The only way known to open  one of these eggs successfully up to  the present has been to have some one  else do it, and if any man has an indention that-will obviate the difficulties he deserves a large reward.  A model for an electric vessel for  which a really marvelous speed is  promised by the inventor has been constructed at Providence, R. I. It is a  ��������� -distinct novelty in very many respects,  ���������.and, if as successful as its promoters  confidently expect, will scarcely fail  ���������to play some havoc with modern ship-  "bullding methods.

A speed of forty  '���������knots an hour is designed for passenger  The remarkable increase of cancer in  Great Britain is attracting the attention of the physicians of that country.  According to the last issued report of  the Registrar General the death rate  from this source has exceeded every  previous record, and the proportional  mortality' at present is four times  greater than it was fifty years ago.  an 1840 there were but 2.7SG deaths  from cancer in England or about 1 in  5,040 of the total population. In 1S94  there were nearly 22,000 deaths from  the same cause, or 1 out of 1,403 of  the population and 1 out of 23 of the  mortality. In the investigations on  this subject the curious discovery was  made that the decline in the death rate  from consumption and other tuberculous diseases coincided with the increase in the mortality from cancer.  The theory is advanced that a large  proportion of those who recover from  tuberculous complaints eventually perish from cancer or insanity. The mat  ter is receiving careful investigation.  r<$$)<������  ' The press of Bolivia is,much excited  over the l-eports that Peru is "making  formidable efforts in the ways of arm  ing'" and  the"Bolivian  Govern  ment to bestir .itself and get ready  for possible war. This seems to be  an unnecessary expense at this time.  These South American ware do not  call for the formalities that are common in European contests.

Bolivia need  not know anything about it if the press j a favorite parrot-  will only keep quiet until the war is all  over and not even then, unless it chooses to go to the trouble to ascertain the  details.    Peru could enjoy its war for  the customary period of about a week,  and then wait until Bolivia is'given-a  chance at its leisure to hold a war to'.  even things up.    The mere detail of!

It is oyerpoweringly depressing ,to  hear that Gibraltar is ho longer invincible, if not practically defenseless.  The Governor of the "rock," Sir Robert Biddulph, says that the garrison  could be shelled out of it with ease  now by the Spaniards, and a special  commission has been appointed to hear  his report and devise means for reforti-  fying within a year. By the aid of  the modern long-range guns and projectiles of great penetration.with which  Spain has been equipping her batteries  at Algeeiras, six miles away across  Gibraltar Bay, the once unapproachable has been brought within reach,  and the impregnable has been made  vulnerable. England can refortrfy.  and, of course, will, but the peculiar  strength of this historic spot has disappeared, and it is on the same basis  of defense as other exposed eminences^  The world would little mourn if ��������� England should be dislodged from this  vantage,  even  by  her    rival    robber  "Hi! Hi! All right! Now  we sha'n't be long!" said the  gray parrot.  ,'I regret to say that the Irrepressible young man that  brings the daily milk is. the  tutor of my parrot in the latest up-to-  date slang of the day.  I am an old sea captain���������at least, not  old, perhaps the word slipped out unawares. I am on the right side of 50,  anyhow; but being In receipt of a pension and a small private income to boot,  I have cast anchor in my present abode  in the expectation of weathering many  a winter's storm yet.  Being without a known relation In  the world, I willingly fell in with the  suggestion that I should pick up my  moorings alongside my old friend and  messmate, Capt. Travers, late R. N���������  who, having left one of his legs on the  west coast of Africa while capturing a  slaver, was pensioned off at an even  earlier.age than myself, and now lived  with his sister���������a most comfortable  party, fat, fair, and 40, or thereabouts  ���������in the adjoining house to mine in the  neighborhood of London. We had always got on well together, our tastes  and dispositions were similar, and we  had often met during our naval careers.  His sister I had not previously been  acquainted with, but, being in many  respects like her brother, we were soon  firm friends.  Capt. Travers and myself had each  his the com mon. African gray, with a red-tipped tail, and  mine the purer variety, without a trace  of color, but otherwise similar.  I had not long settled down In my  new quarters, and got everything shipshape, or what seemed so to me���������a very  important difference, as I know to-day  ���������when, almost unconsciously at first,  I began to feel what a lonely old bachelor I was and what a set-off to all my  other belongings the figure of Miss  Rachel Travers would be by my fireside. But just here the course of my  life began began to make itself felt.  Inherent shyness in the presence-of-the,  opposite sex had dogged my footsteps  from my earliest recollections. Give  ihe a gale of wind in tlie bay of Biscay,  a tornado In the tropics, or twenty  hours' duty on deck, wet through to the  skin, and Capt. Manley, late of the P.  and O. service, will thank you for it,  and consider life well worth living; but.  as dispenser of delicate attentions to  the fair sex. intensely as he inwardly  admires their pretty ways, Capt. Man-  ley does not, no, he certainly does not,  show up to advantage.v  Although fond of pets generally, I  have an antipathy to cats, especially at  night. I am hot aware that our neighborhood was particularly beneficial in  its aspect or other, qualifications to  feline constitution, but ,1 know that until I was inhuman enough to start, an  air-gun cannonade on my numerous  nocturnal visitors, I was frequently unable to get a respectable night's rest.  One Infernal black and white Tom defied mv finest, efforts.    If average cats  wears a crown," sang some poet, who,  I expect, never wore anything harder  than a nightcap, but, true as it may be,  compared to the torture of my mind,  now launched on a course of duplicity,  it would be a bed of roses.  It was toward the end of the following week that 1 happened to be out iu  the garden and saw my old friend eonie  stumping down the path of his own  garden In hia dot-and-carry-one atyle,  and, seeing me on the fence, cried:  "Holloa! Captain, you're quite a  stranger! What's been up? Rachel has  been talking about coming In to inquire about your health, as she was  afraid something must be wrong."  "Yes, I have been a bit poorly," said  I. Oh, how easily the words slipped out,  although I had been as right as nine-  pence���������why that particular sum. should  be endued with more rectitude than Its  fellows I have never been able to discover���������this by the way.  "A bit of cold, perhaps," said Capt.  Travers. "Well, come over the fence  and have a dish of tea in the summer  house, and Rachel shall come in after-'  ward and make you a good glass of  something stiff for a nightcap."  Punctually at 5 o'clock I donned my  sprucest attire, and with a smart flower In' my buttonhole���������gay dog that I  was���������slipped oyer the fence. Miss  Rachel was there, looking as fresh as a  spring cabbage with the dew ou It,  which I consider a very pretty simile,  and she bade me welcome with one of  her beaming smiles. There, too, was the  unlucky parrot in its cage, and standing just outside the summer house. I  had noticed that it had been set out to  sun itself as usual on all fine days, and  as far as I could see nothing bad transpired to make me think they had any  cause to suspect my imposition.  I purposely sat with my back fo it,  and avoided taking notice of It in any  way whatever. '  Tea went off all right; my old friend  was very cheery and .Miss Rachel  showed me great attention.

Prof. G. Stanley Hall, of Clark University, has been collecting facts concerning the fears of children. The fears  of children, he says, are generally created by parents. Prof: Hall found that  1,701 children had 0,450 fears, the leading'ones being the fear of lightning  and thunder, reptiles, strangers, the  dark, death, domestic animals, disease,  wild animals, water, ghosts, insects,  rats and mice, robbers, high winds, etc.  A few of these fears are rational. In  New Jersey no children were found to j  be afraid of high winds, but in the  West that fear naturally leads all others. At Trenton, however, sixty-two  children were found who dreaded the  end of the world, a fear created entirely by adult, teaching. The table shows  what education can do in this respect.  No child was found to be afraid of the j  devil. Two hundred yea re ago and less i  that fear would have led all the rest, j  Few were found who were afraid oi j  ghosts, a fear which would have stood  high on the list not long ago. At Cambridge. Mass., only 155 out of 500 boys  were a fraid of thunder storms and only  230 out of 500 girls. The fear of robbers and of wild animals is a survival,  though robbers have not disappeared  as completely as the wild animals. Forty-six New Jersey children were afraid  of being buried alive, a monstrous  thing to inculcate in the child mind.  Fear will always be one of the strongest influences in human life, but at  least it is possible by teaching what  real danger consists of to eradicate  groundless fears.

But after all it must have been  my bad marksmanship, for one afternoon I saw ray. enemy quietly walking  up the low fence that divided my back  garden from Capt. Travers'.  The opportunity was too good to be  lost, and quietly getting my airgun I  took a steady aim and fired. There was  no mistake this time, and without a  sound poor puss dropped on to my flower bed as dead as the proverbial door  nail.  My exultation, however, was of short  duration, for to my horror and dismay,  on proceeding to pick up his unfortunate carcass and give it decent burial,  I saw that my shot had passed right  through the unlucky animal and killed  my neighbor's parrot, which had been  put out to sun itself in a little summer-  house that stood at the bottom of the  garden.  I was staggered at my position; I  knew the parrot was a supreme favorite with Miss Travers, and how I could  ever explain my carelessness I could  not imagine. Suddenly a way out of  my dilemma presented itself to my  mind, and I hastened to put it into  execution. I knew that the Traverses  were out, and would not be back for  some little time, so hurrying Indoors  and taking my own parrot from its  cage I carefully painted the end of its  tail with red ink in Imitation of its deceased comrade, and finding no one  was about I stepped.lightly over the  fence and substituted the living for the  dead bird, which I buried, together  with the cat, in my own garden. I  knew that my parrot would not readily  talk before strangers, arid I hoped that  by the time it had got used to Its new  surroundings it would have forgotten  its former accomplishments; at any  rate, I must risk it.

I have not seen It out in  the garden lately."  I felt my heart beating a bit faster,  but with every semblance of outward  calm I said:  "No; the fact Is, it's not been at all  well; in fact, it is dead."  "Dead!" she exclaimed. "Well, I  never.   What did it die of?"  "I really don't know," I replied. "It  died quite suddenly about a week ago."  "I hope our Polly isn't going.to follow  suit," she continued. "She has been  very dull and quiet the last few days,  but seems a bit more lively this evening. I don't think she has spoken a  word all the week."  ("Thank goodness!" I Inwardly ejaculated.  Things were beginning to look a bit  awkward, and I cast about for something to change the course of conversation. I am not a quick thinker,  however, and before I could collect my  wits Miss Travers continued:  "Dear, dear, to think your poor Polly's dead! Well, I am sorry! I should  be sorry to lose you, Polly, dear," she  said, addressing the parrot. "But, really, Capt. Manley," looking me straight  In the face, "I can't make our Polly  out Sometimes I could almost believe  she was a different bird. She hasn't  once seemed pleased to see me all the  week."  I felt the blood rapidly rising to my  cheeks and forehead, but I trusted to  my tanned complexion for It not to  show. I feebly replied: "Perhaps she's  moulting."  It was an unlucky slip. "Well, now  I come to think," said Miss Travers,  "I noticed that its^ tail looked much  paler after its bath'the other morning,  and the water was quite red. Is that  a sign of moulting?"  "Yes, I often used to notice it about  my own parrot."  "But I thought your bird had no red  about it," she pursued.  "Confound the woman's persistence,"  I thought, but I stammered; "I mean-  that is to say���������you see���������I've noticed it  In all red parrots I have ever come  across.'. They shouldn't be bathed at  all; it injures their constitution."  "Oh! I thought you recommended it,"  she said.  So I had, dozens of times. "Only for  the gray ones," I said, forming a convenient distinction on the spur of the  moment.  Miss Travers didn't seem inclined to  pursue the subject further, much to my  satisfaction, and then there was a dead  pause.  During the whole of our conversation  the subject of it had not ceased to continue its antics in the wire sage.  Whether it was the sound- of my voice"  that caused It to be thus excited 1 do.  not know, but at this opportunity it  burst in,with "Hi, hi!"  I was getting desperate, and could  think of nothing to change the subject;  and yet if I didn't say something .1  was terribly afraid the parrot would.  A bicycle bell sounded ' down the-  road.  "Are you thinking of getting a bicycle, Miss Travers?" I said.  '"No, certainly not," she replied; "how-  can you ask such a question?"  Another awful pause, during which?  I mopped the perspiration from my  brow.  "Ra���������Ra���������Rachel, I love you!" came*  In clear tones from behind my back.  The wretched bird had caught the exact tone,of my voice.  "Capt. Manley! Sir!" said Miss Travers, raising herself to her full five feet  one and one-iialf Inches. "Did you address that remark to me, sir?"  I had, however, utterly collapsed,,  and, burying my head In my bands, I  leaned down on the little round table..  Whether the sight of the poor old ship-  In distress touched her tender heart, I  don't know, but she added,, in softer  tones: '    ,  "This is very unexpected, Capt. Man-  ley."  ,   I could hold out no longer.  "Miss Rachel," I cried, "I'm a thundering old hypocrite. My parrot isn'r  dead at all; there it Is In that cage; it'&  yours,that's dead���������I shot it I didn't  .mean to. Can you forgive me for alii  the-lies-1 told you?"  "All right! Airrlght!" said the solemn,  voice of the parrot behind me.  "It was Polly that made that remark; .  Just now, hot I. Believe me, she speaks--  the truth, If I don't.   Rachel, I do really love you." .  I ventured to look up.   Tears  were-  standing In her eyes, and the expres- ���������'  sion on her face made me hope that I.  did not look quite such a big booby in  , her eyes as I felt I did in my own.  Moving nearer, I clasped her hand,,  and, as it was not withdrawn, I put:  one arm gently round her ample waist.. *.  "Now, we sha'n't be long," said the*  gray parrot.���������Tit-Bits.-  A Chinese New Year's.  Chinatown of San Francisco was-,  keeping holiday, and all was gaiety and.  .bustle. vV' .    '.���������",.'"������������������..  ..-.j''  The narrow,'picturesque streets were-  decorated with brightly-colored lanterns, while overhead above the rooftops, the yellow dragon-flags floated*  against a blue California sky.  It was a sunny day in February; and.  the streets were swarming with a multitude of Chinese���������men, women and;,  children���������all arrayed in their richest:,  holiday attire. The children especially,,  with their bright faces and black eyes,,  and in their pretty costumes, formed a  most pleasing and interesting feature-  of tills living Oriental picture!  Everybody seemed to be happy and! .  good-natured; and ever and anon, as a.  group of friends met, they stopped andi  amid much ceremonious bowing exchanged the compliments of the season;,  for this festive occasion was nothing:  more nor less than the celebration of  the Chinese New Year.  The idea of celebrating New Year's.  Day in February may strike some of  my readers as odd. But, since this has.  been the Chinese custom from time immemorial, and is older, by several thousand years, than our acceptance of the-  first of January as the proper time, the  Chinese, perhaps, are not far wrong  In supposing themselves to be at least  as much In the right as ourselves. This-  question, however, was of no concern to*  this merry holiday throng. They were  quite satisfied with the arrangement;  and, with the utmost belief in their own,  superiority, they felt at heart an inborn  contempt���������common to all Chinese���������for  "outside barbarians."

AN interesting series of episodes is  represented by the inaugurals of  the various Presidents of the Unit-  ������d States, for the administering of the  oath of office to the chief magistrate, from  ��������� ,the father of his country down to the present incumbent, has been attended *��������� by  many incidents that go to form part of  our national history. ��������� The scenes 'from  some of these bygone pageants are unique  and impressive.'" They cover the triumphal progress of the first President to  his installation that put the new nation  ������n  its  feet,   the "Jeffersonian   simplicity  WASHINGTON COMES TO NEW YORK.  that won by its quiet and correct dignity,  the Jacksonian tinge of "the wild and  ���������woolly wesf'thatmade Old Hickory famous, the attendance of guards armed with  ��������� rifles to protect the new chief .magistrate  - on one occasion, and grand aud formal,  plain and cheerful, quiet and uproarious  Inaugurations, according us circumstances  and enthusiasm ruled the time.  The,first Wednesday in  March,  1789,  was the 4th, and it has ever since been  regarded  as inauuguration  day.     In the  case of Washington, however, the installation became "a postponed event."   The  old continental congress failed to meet at  a time assigned, and the result was that  our first President was not officially notified of his election until April 14.    People  traveled slowly in those days, and it was  not until the 23d, after a week through  which   he   received   all   possible   honors  from the people, that Washington reached Elizabethtown Point, on the New Jersey shore, opposite New York City.    Here  he was met by a committee of Congress  and   a  deputation   of   local   officials.     A  ��������� bargehad been prepared to carry Washington to the city and was waiting under  the command of Commodore Nicholson. It  was manned by thirteen sailors in white.  The sailors pushed off, other barges fell in  behind, and a striking procession made its  <way.   The ships in the harbor were gaily  flecorated, and as the long procession moved through them with music and song it  ���������was  saluted by cannon  and  cheers  that  -shook the echoes.    The preparations for  the formal inaugural, however, were not  yet  complete and the  proceedings   were  postponed for a week.   The 30th opened a  bright; and cheering day.   A national salute   was  fired  and  the   city   bells   were  rung.   At 9 o'clock the people were summoned to the churches  in  thanksgiving,  and to offer up prayers for the success of  the Government.  At Federal Hall the troops were formed on both sides and -Washington walked  between,the lines to the Senate chamber.  He was dressed in a suit of broadcloth of  American manufacture throughout. His  white silk stockings were spun and wove  ra America, and his shoes were ornamented with plain silver buckles.    His head  was less a welcome to the new executive  than a farewell to the old.  The ball was filled, and it is related that  there was scarcely a dry eye save only  those of Washington. To Mr. Adams  it seemed that Washington 'was triumphing over him. "His look seemed to me,"  wrote Mr. Adams to his wife, "to say:  'I am fairly out, and you are fairly in.' "  The general towered above all those about  him, showing in his worn but calm features the touch of care that had been  heavy upon him, and <=thnt he was the  central figure of the event there can be no  doubt. ,  The ungracious absence'of the acting  President marred "the installation of,  Thomas Jefferson. Washington had al-  reay set the precedent that the outgoing  President should attend his successor  during the ceremony of taking the oath,  when he did the honors at Adams' inauguration. But before dawn of March 4,  1801, Adams had left Washington. The  day throughout the United States was  celebrated like a new Fourth of July. In  some places the defeated Federalists made  hostile show pf their' chagrin, but the  rejoicing seemed practically universal.  With Jefferson came an era of simplicity  that.took, its character'from him. He  had objected to the pomp marking previous inaugurations. His own was totally  freefrom this element. He had no establishment in Washington. He had no  coach. So Jefferson rode to the Capitol  on horseback unheralded and without escort, tied his horse to the palings of a  convenient fence, and- entering, took the  oath. His dress was as plain as tailor  could devise. The second inauguration  was as devoid of display, but it was under  more pleasant auspices. Jefferson had  been elected by 162 .votes, against but-14  for his opponent, and the electoral college had no new failure to record.  James Madison seemed content to continue the era of simplicity J His dress at  his, inauguration was of homespun, a circumstance in itself sufficient to excite  great enthusiasm. So vast was the concourse that it seemed the whole population had turned out. The escort of cavalry with difficulty pressed its way  through the mass.     Ladies fainted,  and  outdid that witnessed at the Capitol.  Orange punch had been provided by the  barrel. The adherents of Jackson, crowded to the presidential residence. They  shouted. .They stood on damask chairs,  leaving there the imprint of muddy boots.  "Go it, Andy; we put you there," they  yelled. "Give 'em fits, Andy." And the  general smiled. All the men carried hickory sticks. Many of the,women wore necklaces made of hickory nuts strung together. It was the wildest scene that ever had  the White House for its setting, and  those who viewed it carried the memory  of it long.  March 4, 1837, the date of the Van  Buren inauguration, was as perfect as  could have been desired.. Much of the  good-will shown was for the retiring President Jackson, tall and erect as ever, but  with hair silver white and deep marks of  care upon his face. Old and worn he.  was, and, as with Van Buren by his side  he passed along the line, cheers were for  him. .The two rode in Jackson's phaeton,  a gift made of wood from the old frigate  Constitution. Van Buren's address was  an effort of oratory, and was listened to  intently.'  For days before the inauguration of  William Henry Harrison the city had  been filling with .visitors, many of them  from a distance. - The military feature of  the parade ,was the finest that had ever  been seen at Washington. "Tippecanoe  and Tyler, too!" was the cry of the day.  Mr. Harrison rode a' white horse.. He  was attended by seven citizen marshals,  all handsomely" mounted. ��������� There were  unique figures in the parade. A log cabin  on wheels, drawn by four horses, was the  creation of some of the many Tippecanoe  clubs. It was applauded from one end  of the line to the other, for this was tbe  triumphant close of the Log Cabin campaign.  Exactly one month after he had taken  the oath of office as Vice-President John  Tyler was, called from .Williamsburg to  assume the duties of the presidency. William Henry Harrison lived but thirty days  after having taken a'place in the White  House. When Tyler arrived an effort  was made to induce him to take an oath  as acting. President, but this he refused  to do. His refusal was constitutional,  and was accepted later as a precedent in  the cases .of- Fillmore, Johnson and Arthur.  eji. The address was delivered at the  eastern portico of the Capitol to an immense crowd, that as the towering form  of Buchanan appeared cheered with much  enthusiasm. The oath was administered  by the venerable Chief Justice Taney and  salutes were fired.  The inauguration of Abraham Lincoln,  March 4, 1861, was the opening of an  epoch, the turning'of a page in history.  For the first time a President-elect of the  United States was forced to seek the Capitol with people about him to guard him  from the violence of assassins, unheralded and by night so that murderous designs against him might be bafiied. President Buchanan got into the same carriage  with the President-elect, and the two were  driven through the narrow lane left on  Pennsylvania avemie belween pressing  lines of citizens. It was feared that an  attempt would be made to assassinate  him on his way to the Capitol, and in addition to the escort sharpshooters were  posted on the buildings with orders to  shoot anyone who should draw a weapon,  but no untoward events occurred.   ,  The second inauguration was under circumstances far different. The United  States Government seemed no longer  threatened with dissolution, but the end o.f  the struggle was "uearing. Lincoln was  looked upon as the savior of tlie country.  His address, as before, was one of courte-  "Are you acquainted with any society people?" "Oh, yes, I know a tiling  or two."���������Life.  "Did you take the waters at Saratoga. Col. Kentuck?".

Chancellor  Livingston repeated the oath of office and  Washington kissed the page. "It is done,"  ������aid  the Chancellor.    Then  waving his  {land he shouted to the multitude: "Long  ive George Washington, President of the  United States!"  When Washington for the second time  iook the oath of office there was less public demonstration than on the first occasion. The seat of government had by that  time been removed to Philadelphia, and  the inaugural was held in Congress Hall.  The inauguration of John Adams was  aotable chiefly for its dual character.    It  the gentlemen accompanying them had to  fight to guard them against the jostling,  trampling throng, all eager to press near  the platform. In the outskirts of the  crowd .there were a number of encounters  between rowdies. One Tory who had the  temerity to shout his sentiments that  "Jim Madison ought to be hanged" was  set upon and nearly beaten to death, escaping finally with bruises and the loss of  an eye. ,   ' . ���������  Before the time came for the inauguration of Monroe the British had burned the  Capitol.     The  inaugural   took  place   in  Congress Hall  and the public ceremony,  occurred on a platform near the site upon  which.a new structure was being erected.  The'military feature was impressive.    As  Monroe took the oath a single gun announced the stage of proceedings and military salutes followed in quick succession  from the navy yard and different organizations that had participated in the march.  When John Quincy Adams was inaugurated little remained of the Jeffersonian  simplicity of a quarter of a century before.    At about noon Mr. Adams left the  door of his residence, with his predecessor, in a carriage.   The escort was largely  military,   and  the  many  handsome   uniforms  lent  color  to an  imposing  array.  Mr.  Adams,  dressed  in  a  plain  suit  of  black,  ascended to the Speaker's chair,  the chief justice just in front.   Then the  new President read his address, occupying  forty minutes in its delivery.   Among the  prominent people present was Gen. Andrew Jackson, and the apparent cordiality  of the handclasp between the two was  much commented upon.  There was turmoil in Washington the  day that Andrew Jackson became President. The inauguration was not the comparatively quiet and orderly affair to  which the public had grown accustomed.  The vicinity of the Capitol was like a dark  and troubled sea. When Jackson appeared thousands' of heads were bared, and  thousands of faces turning upward changed the aspect of the sea in an instant. But  the clamor of the White House reception  There was the usual great concourse of  people to attend the inauguration of Polk,  so great being the rush that a bed was a  luxury. All the arrangements were admirable, but the weather could hardly  have been worse. While it permitted Polk  and Tyler to ride in an open carriage, an  umbrella was held over the former while  he delivered his address to an ocean of  other umbrellas. The pavements.were so  slippery that many of the soldiers fell in-  gloripusly during.the parade.  The inauguration of Zaehary Taylor  was not marked by unusual features. The  procession Was headed by twelve volunteer companies. A special guard that  kept the crowd back from the carriage  was composed of 100 young men mounted  on spirited horses. A prominent feature  of the parade was the number of "Rough  and Ready" clubs, so named from the title  the general had won at the head of his  command. At the conclusion of .the inaugural address bells rang, cannon were  fired and the cheering was prolonged.  Millard Fillaiore was the second to assume an executive chair made vacant by  death. July 10, 1S50, the day after Taylor had passed away, Mr. Fillmore. Vice-  President, appeared at the capitol. Senate and House were in joint session. He  went before the body, took the oath of  office and left the building unattended.  The crowd attracted to the capital to  witness the inauguration of Franklin  Pierce had a strong western element in it.  The day was raw and cold. The guard of  the President was composed of mounted  young men, and a fine display was made  by the army and nary. Mr. Pierce delivered his address from memory, the manuscript in his hand net being looked at. Before he had finished snow was falling.  As he took the oath of office, far away  before the American consul in Cuba, Wm.  R. King took the oa.h of Vice-President.  March 4, 1S57, vas foggy and cold in  the early morning, but as the cannon announcing the approaching inauguration of  Buchanan began t������ boom the fog rolled  away. Once more Yfashington was crowd-  ous firmness.   Chief Justice Chase administered the oath. '  After the death'of Lincoln, April 15,  Andrew Johnson succeeded to the presidency. The oath was administered by  Chief Justice Chase in the presence of  the cabinet. President Johnson made a  brief address, but there was in it no demonstration.  A striking feature of- the first inauguration of Ulysses S. Grant as President was  the number of veterans in the crowd.  Grant and the-retiring President rode in  an open landau, Johnson looking sour, and  grim, Grant calm and' content. Behind  them stretched-back a long array of political organizations bedecked in the uniforms  they had worn during the' campaign.  There were Tanners, Invincibles, Wide  Awakes and' Grant and Colfax Clubs.  Colored Republican clubs were also numerous. In the, evening the city was illuminated. Fireworks were set off. and  there was noise made of a hilarious sort.  The ball was a heroic social affair. So  cold was the ballrooms that ladies retained their wraps and gentlemen their coats.'  The ice cream froze " solid, but nobody  cared; warm drinks were in demand. Mrs.  Grant shivered bravely in white silk, but  the guests went early, and by midnight  the hall was deserted.  The inauguration of R. B. Hayes was  peculiar. Mr. Hayes took the oath of  office twice. Saturday, March 3, Gov.  and Mrs. Hayes were guests at the White  House. They withdrew from the other  guests, their purpose being unknown, and  entered the Red Room with President  Grant. There Gov. Hayes first took the  oath-. Once more the ceremony was performed, this time Chief Justice Waite  publicly administering the oath in the  presence of Senate. House and visitors.  The inaugural address was delivered from  the usual stand. In the evening a reception was given at the White House, a  collation having been provided by Mrs.  Grant.    -  The inauguration of James A. Garfield  was marked by the enthusiasm and display that had become by this time a part  of each recurring event As he began the  delivery of his address the sun broke  through the clouds, and it seemed to all a  happy omen. When he had finished, and  applause was'yet ringing in his ears, the  President turned and kissed his mother,  who had sat unspeakably proud of her  son. and then kissed his wife.-*  Again death; was the usher, and Chester  A. Arthur was called to the presidency  when his chief lay on the bier. He was in  New York when notified of the necessity  of qualifying, and at once took the oath as  President.   This was Sept. 20, 1SS1.  The inauguration of Cleveland in 1S85  and of Harrison the second in 1SS9 are  too recent to need more than a mention  to recall them to the reader. It was done  in a minute, the actual making and  un  making of Presidents. At these installations the usual formalities were rigorously observed and the usual throngs were  present. Perhaps the inaugural ball  which signalized Cleveland's second inauguration was as impressive an event as  had characterized such a function for  many years. It was preceded by a magnificent parade, and the ballroom contained 10,000 persons representing the Dower  of America's sous and daughters. The  ceremonies had a ^certain military tinge  from beginning to end that lent unusual  brilliancy to the event.  A  demy  inches.  folio  volume  Is  18  by  11  still a young-looking  Topics.

The, Postmaster General in reply  to our member Mr. Mclnnes,said tenders'  had been duly called for by advertisement' and that only one had* been sent in  which was for $10,460 which the depart  rhent deeming excessive, had declined.  It.should be remembered that cost of  transportation of mails in- the east,'"where  it is, seldom done by steamer, is very  much less than in British Columbia. The  postal authorities do not appear to understand the cost of running a steamer in  this,part of the western coast, and will  not'pay for an extra trip.  It is not likely that anything further  will be done about the. matter until the  completion of the Nanaimo-Comox-Trunk  road, when an every-other-day service  can doubtless be had. This road is;expected to be .finished next year, and as  twelve months will soon roll around, we  should possess our souls in patience.  A Court Martial.  The Light Brigade of Billville is in a mighty  muss���������  The boys went to a barbecue that .ended in  a fuss ;  An' we're havin' a court martial   that's   a-  settin' day an' night,  And these here are the charges that' they're  makin' left an' right:  Sergeant Slattery,  'Sault and battery;  Colonel Boker,  Playin' Poker.*  Captain Kidders,  Huggin' widders;  Major Mazes,  Full as blaze3.

THE COMING CONTEST  Jt is evident from the tone of the Pro  vincial papers, which, doubtless, reflect  public sentiment, that next year's politica,  contest in British Columbia will be fought  out on the old lines, the Ins against the Outs  The campaign may be said to be already  begun. The Government forces are bold  ly challenging the Opposition, which at  present is not well organized  or acting in harmony. There  is no politics in the contest, in the usual  acceptation of that term. It means simply what set of men shall administer the  affairs of the Province for the   next   four  years. Neither free trade or protection  enters into the question. Men from both  parties are among the Ins and the Outs.  Who the men will be at the helm if the'  Ins remain is pretty well known, but in  case the Outs succeed, we cannot tell  who will be premier, or who will fill any  particular position. We know of what  material they have to choose, but not who  will lead. It is a case in which the best  men should win. Will what is best be  realized?  QiTTEEK,.  "Queer, isn't it?"

There are some moral plague  spots  in  Union, and we are glad that  the  officers  made the arrests which they did.    To  be  more precise, there are  two  places  that  need wiping out, and it's  a   shame   they  have been permitted   to   exist   so   long  The process of the law,   surely   must   be  efficient to protect the community against  a stench which is offensive to all respectable people.    Let arrest follow arrest  until the violators  of the  law,- shall  either  be deterred from their evil ways, or  shall  seek some more congenial location.    But  in removing these plague spots  from our  midst, let the officers have the encouragement of all law abiding citizens.  British Columbia Directory.

Is there a city  *f the same size, 10,000, in this  nation under license that can show such results?.  n When  only 54 arrests.per year are made  in a city of 10,000 people,  it  demonstrates  pretty thoroughly that prohibition does prohibit where it is given a fair chance.

MODERN ARCHITECTURE.  Ideas���������Its  Its   Tendency  to   Engl is tt  Utilitarianism-.  There is one feature common to many  Euglish private houses that is seldom  found in American residences, at least  under the same name: This is the "office." One frequently finds mention of  this in descriptions of English residences, even in the statelj- country  houses, and the term often confounds  the uninitiated. The word "office" has  a large latitude in America, and is generally applied indiscriminately to any  place where business is transacted, doing duty equally for the English "chamber" and "shop." But the one use it  never has in this country is that cor-  ���������responding to its use in the English  private room of the master or the mistress of the house, where business letters are written and filed, where ser-;  vants are engaged or instructed, where  ���������.tenants are received, or where the,hundred and one odds of business, appertaining' to every household, are transacted.    There are comparatively  few  DONE TO DEATH IN A SPANISH DUNGEON.  men of leisure in this country,    and  many details that the English gentleman is compelled to look1 after in his  own home are here cared for at the  regular place of* business of the head  of the household. , But still much remains to be done at home, and the various cases and troubleinents are met  and conquered in the "library," or if  the householder is blessed with such a  room, in what we have designated with  very questionable taste, the   master's  "den.", In many cases the word may  be appropriate, enough, but it has too  much suggestion of the brute creation.  "Office" is infinitely better, being more  significant of the uses of the room, as  well as more euphonious.  But whether we risk the charge of  Anglo-mania, or stick to the thoroughly American "den," the thing itself is  TftAMPS OE SIBERIA.  FUGITIVES FROM   JUSTICE IN  BARREN LAND.

RICARDO RUIZ, the American citizen whose mysterious death in n  Spanish dungeon at Guanabacoa, Cuba, stirred the State Department, is a  graduate of a Philadelphia dental college, which gave him a diploma in 187S.  The doctor spent six years in the United States and became so attached to America  and Americans that he decided to become a citizen, and when he returned to  Cuba- he took his papers of naturalization with him. He opened a dentist's office  and was living peaceably with, his wife and children when he was arrested by the  Spanish authorities and thrown into the prison from which he was never to come  forth alive. The charge on which the doctor was arrested is asserted to be false  by even those who sympathize with the cause of Spain. Ruiz had no connection  whatever with the Cubans. His1 associates were all Spaniards. Even his wife is  > a Castilian. He was charged with having aided several insurgents in wrecking a  Spanish military train a short distance outside of Guanabacoa. If the Spaniards  had raised the merest show of inquiry, they would have found that it'was impossible for the doctor to have been present at ;the train wrecking. On the night of  the deed he attended a reception just across the way from his own house, and left  it at lO.o' clock to-return home! Three Spanish gentlemen, accompanied him, and  stayed at his house chatting until after 11 o'clock. As the train was wrecked at  10:30 o'clock that night at was impossible for Ruiz to have been one of the wrecking party. When he left the.United States Dr. Ruiz took with him a lot of books  which were his" favorites.. Among these were the "Life of Patrick Henry," "Life  of Washington," "Webster's Speeches" and "Cooley's Constitutional Limitations."  The doctor was a native of Cuba and at the time of death was 46 years old:  World's  Worst   Vajrrants.  The very worst tramps in the world  are the outcome of the penal system  of Siberia.

And what  ���������a fearful freedom=it is! A never ending, struggle in a. murderous climate,  with, the tortures of hunger and a constant hiding from pursuit, to end in  finally being caught, put into irons and  sent, back to the mines from which  he has escaped. Such is the career of  the "bradiaga:" Sometimes a whole  life is thus spent in tramping, being  caught, brought back and running  away again, and so on until death liberates the unfortunate one from the  burden of life and society from a dangerous pariah. ���������   ,  ,  To discourage these frequent attempts at escape the government has  granted the lawful privilege to any  one of either capturing or shooting  down the bradiaga on sight; and, in  astonishes one most is ihe comblna-.  tion of the most hardened crime with:  some religious ideas, and also a certain degree of humility, born of severe  discipline of hard labor, of the mines,  which produces a show of pity toward  the ��������� victim they are ��������� destroying in the  most cold-blooded manner.

TRAMPS UNDER ARREST.  rir-st Floor  assuming a marked importance in our  architecture. Almost every house that  is built with more pretentions than a.  cottage contains a "den," and while the  room is generally small, it frequently  occupies one of the choicest and most  prominent places in the house. Not uncommonly a great deal of care and expense is lavished upon the finishing and  furnishing of the "den."   It is felt that  this corner of the house should reflect  the taste of the masculine element, even  though all the rest be given over to the  feminine influence. For this reason the  den sometimes degenerates into a mere  smoking room, and blazes '.with all of  the barbaric colors of the Orient.  The design illustrating this article  clearly defines the English idea of the  office room. The den is shown connecting with library, the "evening" room of  the house, with outside entrance from  rear porch.  A brief description of this design we  give as,follows:  General Dimensions: Extreme width,  including veranda, 36 feet 2 inches;  depth, including veranda, 48 feet.

While crossing  these buriat settlements the bradiaga is  afraid to reveal himself, even for obtaining food, and is invariably forced  through hunger to commit theft.  Their mode of attack is simple. Travelers are. never molested in the daytime.    It is only at night that these  blackguards attempt their   nefa rious  work.   The most dangerous hou rs are  between 3 and 6 a. m., when travelers  who have been on the qui viye all night  somewhat relax    their    vigilance.

The Countess' husband is  the director of the German army���������ia  the successor of Von Moltke, in fact,  and the Countess herself is the person-'  al friend and adviser of the German  emperor and his wife. Her influence in  Imperial politics is therefore as great  as that of any one person ��������� other than ���������  the Emperor, himself.'* Even Bismarck  ���������helped hiniself .out of power by being'  hostile to the American  woman and  her plans.   The father of the, Countess  was a New York grocer, who retired '  and left only a small fortune to hia  widow.  Mrs. Lee'went to Stuttgart to  live and educate her children.   There  she met and married a German diplomat, Baron Waechter, afterward am- ,  .bassador to France..In 1864 her daughter, Mary Esther, married Prince Frederick of Schleswig-Holstein, who saw  her 'by accident in <a hotel.   The prince  was immensely rich and 70i   Miss Lee  was poor and 27.   On the wedding trip  to Palestine she persuaded him to make  over to her his entire fortune.' He did  so and died six months later.   Not lonjj  afterwardL the widowed princess   was  married  to Count Waldersee, then a  rising soldier.   Prince William married  a grand niece of Prince Frederick; Augusta Victoria.     That young woman  was ungainly and awkward, but under  the spell of the fair and tactful American she soon became one of the most ,  polished women in Europe.    The tuition given her by the Countess, and its  quick results, charmed the prince, who  was soon to become Emperor.    When  William ascended to the throne, when  *secor\d Floor  room.

The rooms  are so arranged as to show, with every advantage of light, the works of art  that are exhibited in them. It has been finished at a cost, including the site, of almost $1,000,000,. and the best judges of the*e enterprises say that nothing was left  undone and no feature forgotten that would render the building suitable for the  i purpose for which it was created. The architecture of the exterior is of the Neo-  Grecian style. The interior is finished in pink granite, Georgia white marble and  .Indiana limestone generally, and the whole structure is perfectly fireproof. The  sculptures are perhaps the most interesting contents of the gallery. The collection of bronzes is an exceptionally fine one. The floors of the rooms in which the  statuary is placed are of oak or mosaic in marble. The second floor, in which are  hung the pictures, is finished in white marble. On the upper floor there are eight  large rooms for the exhibition of pictures,- and one of these rooms has been set  aside for the works of American painters. The building is lighted by electricity  and heated by steam. A feature of the gallery is a large auditorium with a seating  capacity of 250, for the use of the Corcoran School of Art.

In many sections of the country  the cost should be less.  Copyright, 1S97.    Poor Man.

The tree is  of the type common in many parts of  California, but there are several queer  things about it and its surroundings.  The place where this one grows is a  most unusual one for its species, which  naturally requires considerable moisture. The fact of a tree being rooted  in a barren rock is also unusual in California, on account', of the long, dry  summers, during which young sprouts  usually perish unless there is considerable moisture in the soil. The location of this botanical curiosity is a few  hundred feet east of the trail to the top  of Tamalpais. The general appearance  of the tree is unusual, and it is undoubtedly very old.  tho,  The Dancer'Sigrn Up.  He���������Ah, a veritable "Spirit of  Storm!"

And only Paine's celery compound!  For it is nature's remedy.  Do not for a moment confound it  with any of the ignorant, catchpenny,  short-lived patent' remedies���������sarsapa-  rillas, nervines and tonics that bear as  much resemblance to Paine's celery  compound as the parasite .vines do to  the oaks that they live on.  Paine's- celery compound cures disease. It makes people well. ��������� It has  saved the ��������� Uvea of thousands of sufferers.    It makes the weak strong.  It purines the blood and enriches the  nerves.';  Every condition of winter life has  been detrimental to health. r There'has  been a steady decline in nervous vigor.  Now that spring comes the body is ready  to cast off unhealthy tissues if it is only  given a. chance. This opportunity comes  when tlie (excretory organs, kidneys,  skin and bowels are. made to work actively and the nerves are able to furnish sufficient energy to the  organs. '  digestive  No remedy in the world accomplishes  these results like Paine's .celery compound. It nourishes, regulates and invigorates the entire nervous system1  from the brain to the minutest nerve  filament. It causes an increased appetite and tones up ,the stomach to deal  with the increased food. Its hourish-  ing, action is immediately manifest in  a clearing up of the muddy, unhealthy  skin, an increase in weight and more  refreshing sleep.  First discovered after' laborious,  scientific research by the ablest physician America has produced, Prof. Edward E. Phelps, M. D.r LL. D., of  Dartmouth college, it is prescribed and  publicly indorsed by the best practitioners in every city in America. It  has been so enthusiastically recommended, by grateful men. and women  in every walk of life that it is today in  every ..-sense the most popular-remedy  the world ever knew.  It has .proven itself the greatest of all  spring medicines.'  '   In New York, Chicago, Philadelphia,  Boston,  o  St. Louis   and   two  or  three  other large cities,, the leading newspapers, making their own canvasses again  this year, have found that the demand  for Paine's celery compound surpasses,  that of all other remedies together!  Paine's celery compound, taken during the early spring days, has even  more than its usual remarkable efficiency in* making people well. It  makes short work of disease. It rapidly drives' but neuralgia, sleeplessness,"  dyspepsia and rheumatism from the  system. It ,��������� removes,, that ..lassitude, or  "tired feeling," which betokens weakened nerves and poor blood.  Women working in close offices, saleswomen tire&out and nervous from long,  hours' standing on their feet and waiting on impatient, irritating customers;  overworked, worrier! and disheartened  men and women everywhere will be  astonished to find how much happier  life becomes1 when their nerves have  been strengthened and their blood purified by means of this great remedy.  No other remedy has the hearty approval of a like body of educated men  and women and professional men, nor  has there ever  been a remedy that was  welcomed in. so many intelligent, prudent homes where pains is taken to get  only the best in so vital a matter. In  such families all over the country  Paine's celery compound is the. first*,  last and' only remedy used.   '      ,  Prof. Phelps had- studied the nerves  in health and disease, when well'  nourished and when under-nourished,  in men and women and children years  before he looked for the remedy. Paine's  celery compound is the outcome; of his  entire professional life. It is the one  remedy that the world could not .lose  today at any price. ',     ���������  Paine's celery compound induces the  body to take on solid flesh.  < Physicians recognize Paine's celery-  compound as the one scientific spring  remedy, and it is universally prescribed  by them - wherever there is great need  of a vigorous and prompt restoring of  health and strength to the worn-out  system."  " Paine's  celery compound is the best'  spring ��������� remedy because-it is more than  a mere spring remedy.    It brings about  a healthy appetite, complete digestion,  regular  action of the bowels  and the  other excretory organs whenever taken,  whether in summer' or in winter, but  as the greatest of spring remedies it has  extraordinary opportunities for inducing tlie body to throw off morbid bn-  mors that poison it and cause rheumatism, neuralgia, iieart trouble and a  general low state ,of the health, as in  spring the system is ��������� more pliable and  chronic diseases so securely lodged in,  the' system that they are with difficulty  ousted, become more tractable.  Thousands-of men and women have  found from personal experience that  Paine's celery compound makes people  well, and keeps all from sickness who  take it in the spring. ,  Many a father and mother have noticed,the unmistakableimprovement in'  the health1 of, their' children" from taking Paine's celery compound in the  spring.' It is the one scientifically ao-  curate remedy fitted by its composition  to thoroughly purify the blood and dispel that exhausted feeling and get rid  of skin diseases, headache and fits of depression - with which children with  weak, nervous systems, as well as grown  people, are afflicted.

Only a few years ago a process was  discovered by means of which the armor ...plates of war ships could be so  hardened on the face that the best projectiles   were  shattered   on   striking  them.  This was regarded as a decisive  victory for armor over guns.   Recently,  however, the tables have been turned  once more.    The first step, according  to,. the ,-Scientific .American, - was   the  placing of a cap of soft steel on 'the  point of the projectile.    This enabled  the shot to penetrate the armor, plate  by preventing the   breaking    of    the  point.   Then   increased   velocity   was  given to the shot by the use of improved  powder.   The result wasthat a six-inch  solid shot was sent through ten inches  of face-hardened steel, twelve inches of  oak-backing     and     three     additional  plates,   each  seven-sixteenths    of    an  inch thick, after which the.shot practically unimpaired, buried itself eight  feet in a bank of sand.

Gladness Comes  With a better understanding of the  transient nature of the many physical ills, which vanish before proper efforts���������gentle efforts���������pleasant efforts���������  rightly directed.    There is comfort in  the knowledge, that so many forms of  sickness are not due to any actual disease, but simply to a Constipated condition of the system, which the pleasant  family laxative, Syrup of Figs, promptly removes.   That is why it is the only  remedy with millions of families, and is  everywhere esteemed so highly by all  who value good health.    Its beneficial  effects are due to the fact, that it is the  one remedy .which ''promotes internal  cleanliness   without  debilitating  the  organs'on;which' it acts. It is therefore.1  all important, in order to get its beneficial  effects, to note when you purchase, that you have the g-enuine article, which is manufactured by the California Fig 'Syrup Co. only and sold by-  all reputable druggists.  If in the enjoyment of good health,  and the system is regular, laxatives or  other remedies are then .not needed. If  afflicted with any actual disease, one  may be commended to the most skillful  physicians, but if in need of a laxative,  one should have the best, and with tlie  well-informed everywhere, Syrup of  Figs stands highest and is most largely  v*ed and .gives most general satisfaction.'

See tb.e  (n.ew) of. silverware at Lei.ser/s..  stock I  WHO MADE IT P  Editor The Ne\ys:  Very few people of this district, perhaps, know thei'e are remarkable remains  near the village of Comox. It may be  some of those who have lived here all  their lives never saw or heard of it; but  nevertheless there it is, whether the  Indians or white men are its builders.  I was shown the place by Farther  Durand, who believes it to have been  the work of Indians while camping at  this spot, and from the amount of clam  shells he thinks they must have made a  long stay. He suggest it may have been  constructed as a protection against  attacks of hostile tribes.  The-remains in question consist'of  three rows of intrenchments, in the shape  of a half circle, and cover a space of  about 'hree acres. The ends of the outer.  circle commence at the edge of the bank  above the bay, and curve inland (inclosing the space before mentioned. This  space must at some time have- been  larger, there being signsjofa landslide.  The ttves have the appearance of having  o-rown since the intrenchments were dug,  o  some trees which have grown up inside  of the trenches, show no signs of having  been dug around, and seem to be as old  as fifty or sixty years. At the present  time the trenches are from two to five  feet deep; each row is about four feet  apart. ' l!  Can any one tell how these intrenchments came there? .Perhaps white men  dug them to shield themselves against  the red men at some early date in tlvs  century.  I was told there has never been heard  of a similar work on the island. I feel  sure the story of how this Work came  there would be interesting; or may be it  would be only a story of a crowd camping  there daring' the summer, long before  Camp Bonita came into favor.

When   persons   go   out   to   camp by  themselves or-in little, parlies, they should  not be intruded  upon,  but some  other  place  be  selected.    Some  campers  like  those   at   Camp   Bonita   have   secured  written authority from  the owners of the  land.    This   is .the best   way, unless  for.  hunters or fishermen, who are only in one  place for a day or so.    Campers have'ihe  right' to  choose  their   companions   and  neighbors as well as others.    Get a written licence from the land owner for some  location   apart   from   others, and   invite  such friends as you choose.    Don't make  the:' mistake of "supposing that  any   one  campiusj out is pleased, to feed the multitude.    They are  not there' for that ��������� purpose, but for  rest, quiet, and   recreation.  When you go"'out take your own luncheon  and  if. you make  a call, let  it be  short,  and don't permit the ladies to leave tlieir  hammocks to  get you' tea.    Too often it  happens that somebody  is coming'every  hour or two during the day, and the ladies  art simply made slaves of in cooking or  getting tea for others, and  after, awhile,  tired oil)., and disgusted,  go home- wheie  the rights of privacy are respected. ���������    ���������  Espimalt & Ifanaimo By*  Time   Table   No.   28,  To take effect at 8 a.m. on Monday Mar.  29 th 1897.
