R. Ridgeway vs.  P. P. Collier. This is a qui tam  'ac'ion, in which the plaintiff, in his  own name and in the name of the  King, seeks to have a penalty imposed on the defendant for alleged  neglect to register hisbusiness.  The defendant filed an exception  to'the fo'rm_ on. the ground that the  writ, while, mentioning that the  proceeding's are taken in the name  of the King, does not state what  king, and it might mean the King  of Belgium or Spain, as well as the  King of Britain.'   .  The court dismissed the exception, and held that, although by  courtesy we may recognise, other  kings, for ns Canadians there is  but oue king, legally speaking, arid  the words " The King," used in a  legal document, mean the King of  England aud no other.  p   WEDDING    BELLS. *,      * '  u '  "   On Thursday last, at Sandwich:,^,  the  marriage  tobk  place  of -Miss ...

It is     i:o  -w.onder.' therefore,     that the medical  " 'fraternity    has at last .awakened    to  ' the fact that the most,urgent means  must be taken'to prevent its further  spread and to  teach the public .that  ��������� while.the disease is readily communi-  , cated from one person to anotner, it  is   no.   necessarily   inherited,   though  the  tendency,to  it  may  be.      It   ..is  {thcicforc   of'the    utmost  importance.  /that   people with weak lungs should  ' take the greatest care of themselves  to prevent consumption taking a  hold upon them. Pure, out-of-door  air, lot-, of sunshine, wholesome food  and a good tonic medicine to keep  .the blood rich, red aud pure,will enable anyone to resist the inroads of  the disease. As a blood forming  tome, there is no medicine the equal  of Di Williams' Pink Rills. These  pills where freely and fairly usee],  will strengthen the weakest constitution, and have cured many * cases  of consumption when taken in its  early stages. Proof of th;s is __:\t'n  in tho .case of Mrs. Abram Henry, of  Charlottetown,  P. B. I.    To a repor-  ' ter of the Islander who called upon  her. Mrs. Ilonry said :, "A few years  ago 1 found myself growing weak  and pale and emaciated. I took  various medicines on the advice of  fi iends, but none of them appeared  to do m'e any good, and two years  aao my condition became so mu.h  \\oi'.*-o that 1 was obliged to take to  my bed and call in a doctor, who  said that my lungs were affected,  and that I was going into consumption, and he told my "mother, who  was mostly in attendance upon mo,  that my recovery was very doubtful.  I grew gradually weaker and weaker.  I could not sit up for five mihtitc'S.':.'  my lungs pained me ; I. coughed; severely, lost almost all 'desire for  food," and when I'did cat I found it  diiTicult to .retain food on my stomach.    I fell away in weight from '1-1-8  ! pounus to 100 pounds, and. I do not  think any of my friends expected to  see mo get'better. But some of them  'urged'me to try Dr.' Williams' Pink  Pills, and'I-decided to do so. I bo^  gaa by taking one pill a day, for my  stomach was .very, weak, but I was  soon able to increase this to three  pills a day. and, finally as my  strength was increasing under their  use,    I   took nine /pills  a day.

J,_  Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills  have, produced  such remarkable  cures, as'the  above, because'   they * are ** wholly; unlike ' ordinary medicines,   which   only  act upon the symptoms.

About a century or so ago, when the  commissioners who had in charge the selection of a. site for Bowdoin college were  attending to this duty, they pitched upon  New Gloucester, Me., as combining more  advantages than any other place they had  visited, but the owner of the land refused  to part with it if it was to be used as the  site of a college, though willing enough to  sell it if it was to be put to any other use.  The reason that he gave was that the  students would steal the apples in an  orchard in which he took great pride. So  it seems that this is the reason why New  Gloucester Is noted for its apple*, rather  than as being the seat of Bowdoin college.    Value n_celved.

Wax   figures,   splendidly  got up and clothed in the garments  which were fashionable in medieval |  times, ' are being shown in Norfolk  House for the*1 benefit of those modern nobles who have no notion of  these antique trappings now revived  for the coronation.

There is likely, even yet,  however,  to be   -considerable change in   "   the  dresses  of   peeresses  for   the  corona-  .   ���������'--* ���������*- tion.      It has  been pointed out     to  the  Queen how  excessively  ugly  and  i unbecoming  the costume selected   is,  and it is by Her Majesty's wish that  the Duke of* Norfolk has announced a  change is likely to be made.     Everybody   is   simply  delighted, -for  never  was  there a more general consensus  of opinion than that as - to the hide-  .   ousness of the velvet robes and kir-  tle.  The  coining   coronation  means    , a  ' great deal of work for the King,    as  well as the earl marshal.      Bis    Majesty  devotes  a considerable portion  of    each    day    to    consideration   of  questions      in        connection with  the ceremony. There are a number of interesting "rights" still unsettled. - ^  , Lord Kingsdale and Lord Forrester both enjoy the favor of keeping  * their hats on in the presence of the  King. This was a favor granted by  King John to Lord Kingsdale anc'  which was exercised by the twenty-  third peer in the pieser.ee of King  William III. His predecessor did  q the same in the presence of both  King George II. and George .IV..  but the privilege was never exorcised  in. the presence of Queen Victoria.  Lord Forrester obtained the right  from King  Henry  VIII.  Lord Inchequin has the privilege of  using scarlet liveries, the same as  worn by the royal servants, on account of the descent from the royal  line of Thomond, princes of Ireland.  But of all the claims raised with  regard to the coronation service tlie  prettiest is undoubtedly that of Hear  .Admiral Fell owes, on behalf of . his  niece,   _fiss  Beatrice  Fellowes,        to  perform the office of hcrb-strcwer. It  is recorded that at the coi onaiion  of George VI. a Miss Fell owes ex-  ercised this1 office. Accompanied by  six maids, bearing baskets of flowers and sweet herbs, she walked  before the King in the procession to  Westminster Abbey, strewing'the way  before him. There are iii-.ny  are hoping'this service will "be'  lowed, as it would bo-such, a  turesque addition. * '> ' ��������� ',  The Prince of.

A member of a firm of wholesale merchants in a southern -city .declares that  women make better drummers than men  in some respects. ' "The fact' is," he says,  "that'when it comes to certain lines the  women who have an aptitude .can do  much more than men.  was only a few years  generally believpd that a woman could  not sell anything on the road except  books and certain articles of wearing apparel peculiar, to her sex. The operations  of the female drummer were for a long  time1 confined _to a very limited field:  But in recent years she has branched out  somewhat, and I simply state an open  secret when I say that she may be regarded as a success on the road. In some  instances she has proved herself n more  valuable member than a man.  "Take certain lines.- like tea, coffee,  spices and things of ,that sort, and in a  majority-of instances she will place more  goods than a man will in the same length,  of time. This is probably true of these  articles because she can talk more intelligently about them."���������Washington  Star.  rA  Great  Traveler.

Probably ..the queerest and one which at  first thought seems the most objectionable  is skunk  farming.   This  little animal is  really   very   interesting   and   inoffensive  when understood and properly'bandled.  j     The scent sacs can be removed without  ! trouble from the young, and,old animals  : will   not   use   their   scent   unless   badly  frightened.

He  blamed the Govern men t-for having  ' prevented'the building of the Coast  . Ko'ote.nay railway.   Mr Curtis clos-  ed his address by moving a set'of ���������  .  resolutions stating 'that  "the'proposed contract signed by the Canada Northern  Railway Co.. is  not'  satisfactory" and that "the build-  ,.r;.       *,- ��������� ,.-.*-  *  ing of the Coast-Kooteriay Railway  y as a government work bf'u compe-  titive.line should be arranged for,  and the work of construction   if  at  all possible will be begun during  the coming summer."     After some  noisy wrangling, the motion for the  adjournment   of   the   debate   was  carried.    On  Thursday the debate  on the address was continued  and  again adjourned to give the Speaker  time to   give" his   ruling   on ' an  amendment proposed by Mr Curtis.  The Oriental Immigration Question  was then brought before the House  in a set of resolutions proposed by  Mr Helmcken. requesting His Honor, the Lieut.-Governor to communicate With the Premier of Canada,  asking '������������������O.im   to   bring   before   the  proposed   Conference   of   Colonial  Premiers in the City of London, the  question of the admission into Canada of the citizens of  the Empires  of Japan   and  China,   and  to use  their influence to cause the Imperial Government, to take such  steps  with ��������� the   Governments   of   China  and Japan as will enable the quos  tion to be governed in such manner  as will best accomplish this object.  The-resolution  met With the support of the House.    The debate was  adjourned  on   motion   of  Mr Mc-  Innes,   who"   wished    to   offer , an  amendment which'would place'the  case of the Province in the strongest  possible light.      On Thursday Col.  Prior, Minister of  Mines, made an  explanation with regard to  a  personal attack  made on   him in  the  Victoria Times with regard to the  reservation of seats in the ladies'  gallery, which was satisfactory explained.

Mr  rotables, (Atlin) was glad to see the  hopeful reference toi the mining in-  . industry in the. speechr from .the  Throne.  ���������.
