COMOX is a district situated ,on the  east const of Vancouver Island, in  proximity with the Gulf of Georgia, and  distant'from.Nanaimo about sixty miles.  The earliest settlers came to this place  in 1862 from Australia. They left their  various homes and went lo Australia in  quest of gold, but not being satisfied with  their discoveries, turned their attention  e.ist towards British Columbia where the  gold discoveries attracted the notice of  all those interested in the treasures of the  mine. These men, on their way. to the-  much spoken of gold-fields, heard of a  vast tract of land known as Comox  ���������inhabited only by Indians���������and thither  wended their wav. c  Oh ! how dreary must have been the  prospect of these immigrants as they  sailed into the rude harbor of Comox,  ��������� their eyes resting on nothing but the vast  wilderness and a few Indian Huts. But  the hearts of the unmitr'rar.is were not to  -'be daunted;.they set to work and hewed  out' homes for themselves; but norhavirig  ihe desired implements took quite a time  to make a marl-ed improvement..  Not long afic'r their arrival a quarrel  broke out among the* * Indians; seme  northern tribe- canit- and c:amp"d along  the beach and in -ome way incurred the  hatred of the native Indians. A dispatch  , was tent to Esquirnalt, \.hich was responded to by a warship being sent up  to settle the difficulty. A meeting was  held, the result of which wfV.s favorable to  the foriegn Indians, the whites contending that it would be better to allow them  to remain as they would be useful in the  tillage of the soil.  .The settlers had -communication with  the remainder of the island by a boat,  The Douglas, which. turned her prow  towards this now growing region once in  three weeks; and if not an advantage in  one way'it cmainly was in another, for.  the incoming settler had time to. look  around and take up a claim; whereas if  the boat were to return;the same week he  would very likely leave for pastures  greener.  The Hudson Bay Company established  a store near the Indian Reserve, which  served its purpose for many years and is  still to be seen as a land mark of by-gone  days. .   ,'  Many changes have taken place within  the last twenty years;' and the Comox of  to-day has a bright prospect for the  future. With her rich agricultural lands,  her coal mines, and supposed ore mines  she bids fair to be one of the most prosperous districts on the Pacific coast.  On Comox harbor is situated a small  village known as The Bay which contains  stores, hotels bake.rv, etc. Lying at  anchor in the harbor is to be seen one of  Her Majesty's ships about two-thirds of  the time. Many people take a trip to  The Bay to visit these safe-guards of our  coast.and are shown around their various  apartments. There is good hunting in  this vicinity and the scenery is delightful.  A drive from here brings us in a short  time to Courtenay. On our way we pass  over a dyke built to prevent the waters of  tbe gulf from overspreading-' all the  low lying land. Courtenay, a small village, is situated on either bank oi the  Courtenay river, three miles from the  wharf, and on the road which leads  into the Settlement. It contains many  places of business besides many pretty  residences. It is the favorite resort of  the angler, hunter, pleasure seeker.  On driving into the Settlement one  passes neat farm-houses and well cultivated farms, which now reward the weary  farmer after many  years of toil and  pri-  TIGBE;   BI^AITDS  ALL KINDS, QUALITIES & SIZES  Just arrived from the (3ait  Knitting Mills, men's sizes rang  ing from 36 to 46.

On going six or seven miles  farther you pass over a'road with forest  trees 1 on either side. The ordorofthe  trees and flowers, the chirping of the  birds and the intense loneliness of the  place, impress one with a feeling of  pleasure mixed with awe.  Union, a coa J mining town or three  thousand inhabitants, is situated on the  foot hills of the Buford mountains, six  miles from Courtenay, and sixty from  Nanaimo. The mines of Union turn out  splendid coal, which is transferred over  the railway to Union wharf, from whence  it^ is shipped. Union contains many  business houses and is the market place  of the Comox farmer,  Comox  District is  represented  in the  1  Local Parliament by   Mr. J. Hunter, who ,  looks well after the needs  of the district  in the way of roads and bridges.  ��������� IF you want a knoby suit, call and  examine our stock of clothing from the  "celebrated" W. E.

Sharp 12, writing to a friend  m Union from Bennett Lake, Sept. 29th,  says:  "Just a line to let you  know I am   still  pushin.i.- on toward the land of gold.   Our  progress has been  slow; we   have  made  only   fifty miles since the 3th, of August,  when we disembarked  from the  steamer  Danube at Skagw,ty Bay.   We all expected hardships, but not near like what they  have been.   We have been working every  minute of daylight ever since we  started  ���������Sunday as well; in fact there is not one  man out of    tenon   the trail   that could  tell Sunday from any other day;  and you  will hardly .believe it when I tell you that  it is   not  at all   uncommon   to hear, two'  men arguring about the  day of the week,  and  neither  right.    Such   was the  case  to-day with J. Greaves and D. Ennis.     ������������������;  Great is the excitement.    Every one is  making for the lake   where we are  now.  They   must   be here , this   week or Will  probably have to stay here all this winter.  The winter has siarted   here in   earnest;  although the lakes   are   not   frozen   yet  there is a lot of snow.    \\ e HOPE to leave  here tomorrow evening, but   we  may get  stopped before we reach the Yukon river,  as it is liable to freeze at any time.  This is .the only letter I have written  since I left; we have been too busy for  anything, and it is forced work for me to  find time, as McGregorand Hugh Miller  are taking the tent down from over me  now.  It would be useless to attempt to  describe the trail w(i have passed over, as  all the sights would fill a good sized book.  ^^^All the rest of the party are well;  also Dave Young and Ed. Woods and  their crowd; they are all here." ,  Mr. R. Grant writes they have shot  four of their horses. The weather had  been bad, and if it did not improve they  might have to stav until the ice on the  lakes was frozen. They were not in a  rush to get to Dawson City, bur would  like to get their mail of which they had  received  mme since they had left here.  NOTE.���������There are   from 2000 to  3000  people at Bennett Lake, and all   who left  here at the same time   appear to be there  together and in good health and   spirits  ���������Ed.  For the Best Patterns in A i r-t i g h t  Stoves, sro to the Un-  ion Store.  CKftASTT&CO.,   vs. PIKET.  The now somewhat well-discussed case  of R. Grant & Co.,' vs. Mrs. Piket of the  Cumberland,  in   which    judgement  was  signed for $900.00 and 'the Sheriff placed  in possession under a warrant of execution,  rwas disposed of at Nanaimo oh Tuesday  last, when  judge   Harrison   ordered that  ihe summons and all  proceedings be'set  aside with  costs.    The argument  in the  matter lasted two days.    The point upon  which the decision was based, is that the  judgement was signed prematurely.    The  statute   provides   a' form    of   summons  which requires a defendant within   eight  days after personal service INCLUSIVE OP c  the day of such service to  appear.  The punted forms which were distributed  ,by the government ,to the several   Registrars throughout   the   Province   omit the  words "inclusive of the day of such  service."    This omission  has the effect  of giving  a  defendant  one  day  longer  than' the form in the  statute'intends.    In  signing judgement    the   plaintiffs   were  within the period of time  allowed'by the  statute but were  wrong.only in   so far as  that the  mistake  in the printing of the  form was not noticed oranticipated. Had  the plaintiffs in ether circumstances signed premature judgement ��������� they   might be  ��������� liable  for  damages.     Judge   Harrison's  order which we have seen reads that it is  made, upon the "defendant, by her Counsel   undertaking  to bring no  action for  damages by reason of any of the proceedings herein."    The defendant  is ordered  10 pav the fees of the ShetifPs  bailiff for  eight days by   way of set off against the  costs allowed against the plaintiffs.  The plaintiffs are  at liberty to bring a  new action.  ���������CaLL at Tarbell's store, if you want  a good air-tight stove. L: Quality of material, ;;nd workmanship guaranteed..

SOME INTERESTING INFORMATION IN  "THE PASTON  LETTERS."  UNION. B;C.  ' The "Week's Commercial Summary.  The stocks of, wheat at Toronto are  83,343 bushels as against 98,253 bushels  a year ago. ��������� ���������   ���������'"-���������  , There has been an advance of 5 per  cent, in the price of Dominion Bank  stock the past week.   ,  The local wheat market is very dull.  There is apparently no demand, while  offerings are limited.  The world's shipment of wheat laBt  week were 5,322,000 bushels as against  8,424,000 bushels a year ago.  At the annual meeting of the Toronto  Stock Exchange on Tuesday afternoon  Mr. A. E. Ames was re-elected president,  and Mr. G. T. Ferguson vice-president.  Manchester spinners'are encouraged by  prospects of ah increased demand for  goods from Bombay, where a Monsoon is  reported to have broken. Relief will also  be afforded famine stricken districts by,  these rains.    ; '.   ���������"'/'"'.%'....  Some of the best talent in wheat are  inclined to short the market on the promising crop outlook. Mail advices from  South Dakota districts denied that grass-'  hoppers had caused any material damage  to the wheat crop. Snow's crop summary  for the week spoke of the spring wheat  position as very favorable and estimated  the winter wheat prospects at 300,000,000  bushels against 265,000,000 bushels suggested by the Government.  The visible supply of wheat in the  United States and Canada Is 22,686,000  bushels, a decrease of 1,764,000 bushels  for the week. A year ago the total was  49,4S6,'000 bushels. The amount afloat to  Europe is 17,440,000 bushels, a. decrease  of 1,128,000 bushels for the week. A year  ago the total was 30,720,000. Total visible supply and amount on passage to  Europe is only 40,120,000 bushels a decrease of over 40,000,000 bushels as compared with a year ago.  Wholesale trade at Toronto shows some  Improvement this week. The summerlike  weather has been beneficial, the demand  for goods being.stimulated.thereby. General 6tocks of merchandise are comparatively light at country points,' and the  outlook is .more encouraging. Prices as a  rule are firm for the leading staples., Imports of dry goods during May were  larger than usual.' The railways are doing a large and increasing business, and  bank clearings show considerable improvement oyer the corresponding periods  of two or three years.  The atmospheric conditions In the  Montreal district have been of a rather  more favorable character since last report,  and with warm settled weather from this  out it is believed much of the delay in  farm work and vegetation could yet be  made up. The country roads are also  getting into fair shape, and there is a  little more feeling of encouragement, but  buying generally is being done on very  careful lines, and the volume of trade as  a whole shows no very appreciable increase. City retail trade in the dry goods  and clothing line is better, owing to the  finer weather.  Mr. Geo. Anderson, of Toronto, who  has been appointed by the Dominion  Government a commissioner to investigate the trade question between Canada  and Japan, has issued a circular to manufacturers throughout the Dominion asking for information regarding their products, with a view to future trade with  the Japanese people. No doubt there are  various lines of goods made in this country in which an export trade can be  done, and this is an excellent opportunity  to introduce them in a business like manner. Mr. Anderson is a practical business  man, well qualified for the position he  has been placed in, and it is hoped and  believed that his visit will result in the  extension of the trade of the   Dominion.  \  Here and There.  ���������     Can a bicycle pump be called   a wind-  fmill?

Commiuioni Which W'Vea G*re to Their  Husbands In the Fifteenth Century Have  'a Quaint Appearance In Tbif "Age���������Dame  FMtou ai a Eouewife, <  In the spring of ,1440 Dame Agnes  Paston wrote to her ''right worshipful and dear husband" in haste, the  Wedneidaynextafter,,i)eu8 qui erranti-  bus" (the collect for the third Sunday  after Easter). Having commended the  gracious mien of the young gentlewoman her son proposes to marry, she says:  "The parson of Stockton told me that  if ye would buy her a gown her motber  would , give thereto a goodly fur; the  gown needeth to be bad, and of color it,  would be a goodly blue or else a bright  sanguine.''  The Mistress Margaret Mauteby, for  whom this gown was "purveyed," became the wife of John Paston, and her  letters, covering nearly 50 years, are  noteworthy in that famous collection,  .'The'': Paston Letters,' which reveal so  ���������many secrets,of bygone statecraft, but,  what is of more worth to us now,, giving glimpses of household economy and,  by clear connotation, the inner life of  the women of tho period. Margaret Paston appears as an active, prudent housewife, looking into every, detail of her  large establishment and, from her husband's prolonged absences, forced to assume many masculine cares.' She managed the several farni3 of their estate in'  the Hundred of Tunstead, Norfolkshire.  She planned new buildings, armed and  defended her besieged hall, conducted  lawsuits and arranged the marriages of  her children and grandchildren. But,  withal, she was a very woman, and it  is interesting to note the "ewig wei-  bliche" running like a thread of gold  through a long series of letters.  The orders sent to her husband and  son, who were usually in London, for  various articles of apparel are curious  to examine. That in her youth she was  fond of all gauds may be guessed from  a letter written not long after her marriage, when,, inquiring.minutely of her  husband's health during some slight indisposition, she had "lever than a new  gowne, though it were of scarlette,"  tbat he recover. Her commissions are  usually very moderate and limited to  the plain necessities of everyday wear,  as for example:  "I pray you that ye would.vouchsafe  to buy me some frieze to make of your  children's gowns. Ye should have best  cheap and best.choice of Hay's wife, as1  it is told me. And that ye would buy a  yard of broad cloth of black, for one  hood for me, of 44d. or 4 shillings a  yard, for there is neither good cloth nor  good frieze in this town."  Yet this town was Norwich, the seat  of woolen factories from the time of  Henry I,, their crude work later improved by the skill of Pbilippa's Flemings. It was evidently the nearest market and the source of ordinary supplies,  for Dame Paston had but just written,  "May it please you to wit, I was at  Norwich this week to purvey such  things as needeth nie against this winter. " /  Worsted and its neighboring Kersey,  which gave their names to the fabrics  there made, were in the east of Norfolk. In reference to the products of  the former Sir John writes from London to "mine own dear sovereign lady:"  "I pray ye you will send me hither  two ells of worsted for doublets to  happe me this cold winter, and that ye  inquire where William Paston bought  his tippet of fine worsted, which is almost like silk, and if that be much  finer than that ye should buy me after  ? or 8 shilling's, then buy me a quarter  and the nail thereof for collars, though  it be dearer than the other, for I would  make my doublet all worsted for the  worship of Norfolk."  Sometimes a bit of feminine vanity  is seen, as when Lady Paston writes  her husband:  "I pray you that ye would do your  cost on me against Whitsuntide that I  may have' something for my neck. When  the queen was here, I borrowed my  cousin" Elizabeth Glere's device, for I  dared not for shame go with my beads  among so many fresh gentlewomen as  were here at that time. "  And Sir John's memory for domestic  commissions was like other men's, for  in the next letter his wife prays him  that he "vouchsafe to remember to purvey a thing for my neck and to do make  my girdle," and in still another, "I  thank you that ye vouchsafe to remember my girdle."  It shows a pleasant confidenoa and  the assurance of her absent husband's  interest in every side of her life that  she writes him minutely of her plans in  making her gowns, saying: "I pray you  that ye would vouchsafe to buy a piece  of black buckram for to line with a  gown for me. I should buy me a murrey gown to go in this summer and lay  in the collar the satin that ye gave me  tor a hood, and I can get none good  buckram in this town to line it with."  The letter of her son William, written in 1459, gives us an idea of the outfit for a boy at Eton:  "I beseech you send me a hose cloth,  one for the holy days of some color and  one for the working days (how coarse  soever it be maketh no matter) and a  stomacher aud two shirts and a pair of  slippers."  ____,  This masculine stomacher seems from  other scant mention thereof in early  writings to have been a sort of skeleton  inner waistcoat, perhaps not much more  than the chest protector of today.  There is no more , vivid appreciation  of ^existing conditions of society: than  that which springs from their Comparison with life relatively of the same de-  gree'iu another age and environment.  As a suggestion of such fruitful study is  this glimpse cf the shopping of Margaret, later Lady' Paston of Caiator  Manor. ���������New York Post. |,  i  ii  DISTRESSING RESULTS FOLLOWING VACCINATION.  A Young Daughter of David McHarciy, of  "Fcrjrus, the .Victim-���������Has Suffered the  .   Most Intense Agony���������Doctors JFailtd/to  Help Her.   ���������'���������*''". ���������-������������������,.  From the Fergus News-Record.   '.  Nearly every person in   this   section is  acquainted with   Mr.    David   McHardy,  ''the   popular   leader   of   St.     Andrew's'  church   choir, . Fergus.     Our     reporter  called upon. Mr. McHardy9at his home in  Upper Nichol   recently,   and   from   him  and his estimable wife   a tale of   terrible  suffering was elicited,   suffering that has  brought a once exceptionally strong   and  healthy child to the   verge   of the grave.  The     subject' of'    the     sketch,      Lena'  McHardy, is fourteen   years   of age, and.  her parents say   she   has not grown  any  since her illness   began   some . two years  and a half ago. ' Her   terrible   suffering  dates from the time she   was   vaccinated  in June, 1S94,   and   what   she has since  undergone has aroused the   deepest sympathy of all tne friends of the family. In  conversation with Mr. McHardy  and his  wife, the following  facts   were   elicited:  "Two years ago last June," said   the father, "Lena was   vaccinated   by a doctor  in Fergus.    The arm   was very sore and  swollen all summer, and became   so bad  that   it   was   a   mass  of sores from the  shoulder to the elbow.   In October, 1894,  a large lump appeared on her  back, over  one of her lungs.  The doctor who vaccinated her,   treated   her   all that summer,  calling very frequently, but the medicine  he'gave- her   did   no,   good and she was  growing weaker and weaker.   When   the  lump broke , out   on   her   back   another  doctor was consulted,   who 6aid she   was  in a very bad state of health.    Her   constitution appeared to be   completely   undermined, and her appetite had completely failed.    The last doofcor called  in gave'  some outward   applications,    and lanced  the gathering,   but   it   did  not give the  patient any benefit. Nine such gatherings  have appeared Eince   that time, but each  broke and disappeared of its own accord,  only however, to be followed by another.  The child became   very puny,   ana, little  or no food would remain on her stomach.  At night she would fairly   rave with the  pain in her   arm and    back,    and consequently her trouble was aggravated  by a  loss of sleep. She had the best of attendance but to no avail, and she was slowly  but surely  sinking.    Friends   advised   a  treatment with Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills  and as a last resort they were   tried.    To  the surprise of both parents and   friends  Lena began to improve soon after  beginning the   use of the pills.    Her   appetite  returned, sho became   .stronger   and   her  general    health   much   improved.     The  sores have not yet left her back and arm,  but. her   constitution   is   being   so  very  much improved under the treatment with  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that her parents  are looking   for   a   complete   cure.    Mr.  and Mrs.   Hardy   thank   Pink  Pills for  the present   improved   condition of their  child, as they have done   her   more good  than the   scores   of   bottles   of   doctor's  medicine which she took.

SIXES AND SEVENS.  *'My last day at Oxford!" sighed Mrs.  Homer as she lay back in tho punt and  put up her parasol. "Isn't it a shame,  Mr. Elsworth, that I have to go away oe  tbe first day of tbe 'eights?' "  Elsworth of Exeter, having moored the  punt carefully,' turned and sat down op-  , poslto Mrs. Romer, nursing his knees.  "Beastly shame," he said, with gloom  In his voice.    "But must you go?"  "Positively must," replied Mrs. Romer,  shifting her parasol and looking at hez  companion round the edge., "We've got  to go to a dinner party tomorrow night in  town and a theater und dance . the nexl  night, and���������oh���������something or other every  night till the- end-of-the season. Bui  . you're coming to see us In town, aren't  you?   You promised, you know."  Elsworth dug his heel into the floor ol  the punt. "You won't have any time to  spare for me in town���������like up here, you  know,".he said. gloomily. Then, mow  cheerfully: "We've seen a lot of each othei  the last week, haven't we? Seems as though  we'd know each other for���������foranyamounl  of time."  Mrs. Romer shifted her parasol again In  order to watch an eight paddling down tc  the starting point at Iffley.  "They look such nice, clean, wholesome  boys," she said. "That's what I like so  about Oxford. All the boys look as though  ���������well���������as though they hod a bath every  morning. What boat is tbat?"  - . "Oh, that's the House���������Christchurch, ]  mean.    But let's"��������� ,  . "And whois thatnttheend of thoboat?"  "That's Barclay. He's stroke, you know;  awful outsider."  "He looks nice, "said Mrs. Romer, following tho boat with her eyes.   -  "But, I say," said Elsworth, "can't  you cut the dinner party and stay on? We  could have such an awfully good time."  Mrs. Romer turned her eyes to Elswortb  and shook ber head. "I'm to be carried of!  by main force tonight," she said. "You  see, my husband is coming on from Birmingham this afternoon to pick me up,  and we positively must go to town by the  last train."  Mrs. Romer leaned back onhercushions  and sighed. "But you're not smoking,  Mr. Elsworth," she said. "I don't mind  your smoking, you know."  "I don't want to smoko," said Elsworth.  "I Eay," he continued after a pause,  "we've had a ripping good time this last  week, haven't we?"  "I've enjoyed myself Immensely," said  Mrs.  Romer.    "Everybody has   been  so  kind.    The Pethwicks are charming people and let ono do just as one likes, and"���������  "Yes," said Elsworth, "I shall always  be grateful to.the Pethwicks."  . "And you have simply devoted yourself  to me, an old married woman like me  * too!"  "What rot!" said Elsworth. "Why, I  don't believe you'ro more than���������than a  year or two older than I am."  "Ah, but I am," Mrs. Romer sighed;  shifted her parasol again and turned toward the river. "Wasn't that tho gun?"  she asked. "Does that mean that the race  is starting?"  "No. That's only the first gun," said  Elsworth. "But never mind the race.  Let's talk about���������I mean���������I want to tell  you"���������  "Don't be silly," said Mrs. Romer, sit-  ting .up and looking with great interest  down the course. "Of course J mind about  the race. That's just what I've come to  ������ee." ' ,\  "I believe you aro offended with  me,"  said Elsworth gloomily.    "I suppose I de-  , serve it.  I'd have begged your pardon last'  "EtigbtVniy I thought you didn't seem to  mind, you know."     ' l  "Mind!" said   Mrs. Romer, turning toward Els worth.   "Mind what?   I thought  you were particularly nice last night."  "Then you weren't offended���������really?"  "Why should I be offended?"  "At what���������what I did."  "Why, Mr. Elsworth, what did you do?"  Elsworth turned a puzzled face to Mrs.  Romer for a  moment.    Then, picking a  bit of fluff carefully from the knee of  his  flannels, "I mean,"he said, "Imean when  I kissod you."  "Ob!" said Mrs. Romer.  "I'm awfully sorry if it annoyed you,  but I did."  Elsworth looked up  boldly at Mrs. Romer, whose  eyes wandered vaguely round  ���������. the horizon.    Her eyebrows lifted.  "I don't remember," she said.  "Don't you  remember," pursued  Elsworth, "when we wore standing last night  ���������after supper at Brandon's���������looking into  the gardens? I was just behind you���������quite  ���������close-^-and"���������  "Yes?" said Mrs. Romer, quite gently,  as her eyes came to rest upon Elsworth's  face, which was still bent on the knee of  his flannels.  "Well, I couldn't help it, you know.  But you did know, didn't you?"  "I did not," said Mrs. Romer. "I  hadn't the least idea, and I can't understand"��������� '''."'  "I'm awfully sorry���������really," said Elsworth.  Mrs. Romer watched him in silence for  a few moments as he plucked at the knee  of his flannels. Then her brow wrinkled  a little. "Why are you so sorry?" she  asked.  "Because I'm sure you are angry, now,  ���������aren't you?"  Mrs. Romer reflected, rnjbblng the han  dle of her parasol gently agaimtfher cheek.  "Well, you see," she said after a pause,  "after all, I didn't know."  "But supposing you had known," said  Elsworth, looking suddenly up at her.,  "It would never have happened," said  Mrs. Romer firmly.  There was silenoe for a few moments,  Elsworth looking.moodily across the river  to the towing path, where the townsfolk  stood to view the races, and undergraduates were hurrying down to run with the  boats. ' Mrs. Romer" looked reflectively at  Elsworth.,  WI don't think it was very nice of you,  Mr. Elsworth," she said, "to���������to do that  sort of vbing without my knowing It.  Why did you do it?"  "There didn't seem to be���������any .other  way," replied Elsworth. Then, meeting  Mrs. Romef's eyes, he said: "But you  needn't laugh at a man. It's rough."  '- "I'm not laughing," said Mrs. Romer.  "I'm very much annoyed."  "But you said you weren't angry;" said  Elsworth.  "You havenlt told me why you did it,"  said Mrs. Romer. "And there's another  gun.    That's the start, fcn't it?"  "I couldn't help, it," said Elsworth.  "Don't you see, when a -man sees you every day���������talks to you���������and���������and all that,  doesn't it stand to reason, Vi���������I may call  you Violet?"  "Certainly not," said Mrs. Romer.  "Why, I'm old enough to be your mother  ���������very nearly."  "Oh,   rot!" said Elsworth.   "You look  awfully young and���������and jolly."  Mrs. Romer shook her bead.  "I put my complexion' on  every morning," she said.  "I don't believe it," said Elsworth.  "And I dye my hair," continued  Mrs.  Romer.  "I don't care," said Elsworth.'  "And I���������I'm married," said Mrs. Romer.  .Elsworth returned to tha obdurate bit  of fluff on his knee.  "I suppose," he said slowly, "that does  matter." Elsworth looked up straight  into Mrs. Romer's eyes. "You are laughing," he protested. "It's beastly rough  on a chap."  The shouts of the spectators on the  banks, on,the barges and in the boats grew  in volumo. A bell clanged, the, signal from  the bank that a boat was within bumping  distance of another. - Excited men tore  along the towing path with rattles and  shouted the names of their colleges in encouragement as the eights came up the  course. But Elsworth hoard none of these  things. He heard only the laughter that  bubbled from the lips of Mrs. Romer.  "Oh, you absurd boy!" she said. "There I  Exeter has made a bump, and you haven't  even cheered."  "I wasn't-thinking of the races," said  Elsworth. "A man doesn *t think of things  like that when he's"��������� r '  "We ought to be getting back," said  Mrs. Romer as she watched the eights  paddling back from the winning post to  their respective barges.  Elsworth unmoored tbe punt and began  punting up stream.- After a stroke or two  he stopped, and trailing tbe pole in the  water  behind   him   said,   "I   suppose   I'  mustn't come and eee you���������now."  "Why.not?" said Mrs. Romer. "I'was  hoping to see a lot of you when you came  up to town���������or down, you call'it, don't  you?"  .   ^'You mean it?" said Elsworth.    "Be-  oause, ,of course, I should   be���������-only the  thought   perhaps���������after   what   has   happened"���������  "What has happened?"  "I mean���������after   last  night   and���������and  what I've said today���������but I couldn't help  it, you know, but ,1 thought you might  find it a little awkward my meeting"���������  . "Oh, there's Dickon  the barge," sold  Mrs.   Romer.    She  waved   a welcoming  parasol, and a lifted straw hat on the Exeter barge identified Mr. Romer. Elsworth  punted alongside and was forthwith  introduced to Mr. Romer.   ���������  Mrs. Romer held Elsworfch's hand a moment at parting.   '  "You mustn't," she said, "take It too  seriously���������what-I said."  "You mean���������about���������about minding?"  "No," laughed Mrs. Romer, "about my  hair, and  so on.    Good by.    We shall see  you in town."  "Good looking boy," said Mr. Romer as  he walked up through Christchurch  meadows with his wife.  "Isn't he?" said Mrs. Romer. Then,  looking sideways up at her husband, she  proceeded: "And, oh, Dick, what do you  think? He's in love with me���������awfully in  love, poor boy!"  "What, another!   Really, Vi, the public  prosecutor ought to take you up."  "And���������Dick���������he kissed me!"  "Oh, Vi, come"���������began Mr. Romer.  "Ifc was such an absurd little kiss���������on  my back hair.    I could scarcely feel it,  and   I couldn't laugh  because���������beoause,  of course, ho thought I didn't knowj and  now he's so miserable about it."  "But why should he bo miserable," began Mr. Romer, "if he"���������  "Oh, don't be logical, Dick! You don't  mind, Dick, do you?"  "Mind," said Mr. Romer, selecting a  wignr from his case. "Of course not���������if  Lo doesn't."  They walked on for a little in silenoe,  Mr. Romer purring at his cigar.  "Well," he 6aid at length, "you're very  serious, Vi. What are you thinking of?

THE  RUSSIAN  CENSUS.  L.arjre   Increase   in   the  Population  Cities Shown by the Enumeration.  of  Russia is one of the few countries of  Europe in which statements of the population are based not upon official enumeration, but upon estimates sometimes  inaccurate. While, therefore, the population of a city, province or district of  Russia has been known in a general  way, an exact and detailed record, of the  number of Inhabitants at any given time,  such as is kept in London, Paris and  New York, has been lacking. Recently  there has been taken a census of the  population of, the large cities of Russia,  and the Novoe Vremya of Moscow gives  details of the preliminary count.  Fifteen years ago the population of  Russian cities was returned as follows:  St. Petersburg, 845,000; Moscow, 755,-  000; Warsaw, 430,000; Odessa, 240,000;  Riga, 170,000, .and Kharkoff, -165,000.  These were the six cities in Russia having more than 150,000 population each,  according to the estimates made at that  time. By the census just completed���������the  first regular census taken in Russia���������it  is seen that St. .Petersburg has a population of 1,250,000 or very little less than  the city of Vienna, and more than Tokyo,  Japan. This puts St. Petersburg seventh  in the list of cities of the world,' London  being first, the enlarged New York second, Paris third, Berlin fourth, Canton  fifth   and Vienna sixth.  Tho next largest European city after  St. Petersburg is Constantinople," tho  population of which has always been  somewhat, conjectural, for a detailed  enumeration of its inhabitants has never  been made, and, moreover, the number  of transients in Constantinople is at all  times considerable. The second largest  city of Russia is Moscow, the population  of which was returned by the recent  census as within a, small fraction of the  million mark���������997,937. Moscow is a much  older city than   St.   Petersburg,   and' it  Sas for many years the chief city of  nssia, but that distinction belongs to it  no longer; though, as may be seen, the  population of the old Russian capital is  largely on the increase. The third-largest  city of -Russia is Warsaw, with-a nopula-  tion of 550,000, and Odessa is fourth,  with a population of 350,000. Two Russian cities which have increased very  largely are Kiev and Lodz in Poland.  Fifteen years ago the population of Kiev  was 120,000, but it is now 200,000. Fifteen years ago the population of Lodz  was 10,000; it is now 150,000. Nineteen  Russian cities are returned as having upward of 100,000 inhabitants each.  Thirty-five cities in the empire have  more than 50.000 population. Samarkand  and Kokand occupy higher places in the  list than such ancient and important  centers as Tyer, Kursk and Poltava..  The complete results of the Russian  census will bo made known by the end  of-August. The marked growth in the  population of Russian cities in ascribable  in considerable measure to the increased  development of Russian railroads and to  the improved methods of communication  throughout the empire. The total popur  la tion of Russia, urban and rural, with  colonies included, is far in excess of 100,-  000,000, and the rate of increase is rapid.  ���������New York Sun.  ORGANIZED CHARITIES.  "Recovering- Copper From Water.  The Butte man   who   hit   on the idea  of   extracting   copper   from   the   waste  water of a mine deserved the fortune   he  is said to have made out of his discovery.  He noticed that the   water which flowed  from his workings was emerald   colored,  and he naturallly argued that if he could  precipitate the mineral which caused the  coloring, it would be to   his   advantage.  So, after the water had been allowed   to  run away for four or five years, he established   a plant   which   turned   it into a  handsome source of revenue.    He   afterward sold his   rights   and   the company  which   bought   them   is   now   realizing  $30,000 a   month at a cost of   about ������1,-  000 a month. Several acres of ground are  covered   with   wooden   vats, which   are  filled with old scrap iron.    In   this   way  the tons upon tons of old iron   the   company has been accumulating for  years is  profitably disposed of. Old hoisting cages,  water pipes, wheelbarrows, railroad iron,  or any old thing that   consists   of tin or  iron is appropriated to this service.    It ia  estimated that   for   every   pound of iron  put into a vat a pound of copper   is produced. The copper absorbs the iron completely within  three   weeks.    After   tha  precipitation   is   effected   the   water   ia  drawn off and the copper slime is   transferred to another tank.    This tank holds  about fifteen tons of copper,   which    has  the appearance of a   clayish    substance.  This is sacked into packages of about 100  pounds, and sent to   the   smelters.    The  product gives an average of 86   per cent,  pure copper.    The   iron   remaining in it  makes a fine flux, and when mixed with  other smelting ore it is said to bring the  ore up to a value of about ������300 a ton.  Of Course He Was Sick.

The mornings and evenings will be  devoted to papers and addresses of a general character in which all will be interested, while the afternoon meetings will  be given over to some six or eight sections, dealing with some special branches,  such as charity organization, childsav-  ing, the care   of   the , insane, municipal  /  5  1  ed and dependent children will be discussed at these meetings. Altogether the  gathering promises to be a most enjoy-  uble and instructive one. Special railway  arrangements are being made whereby  single tare rates can be secured, and it  is expected that many Canadians from  all parts of the country will attend this  - meeting. Hon. S. H. Blake is chairman  of the~iocal conjimittee, while the Secretaries are Dr. A. M. Roseburgh and Mr.  J. .7. Kelso.  Outside entirely of the benefit to be derived from the meeting, the opportunity  to make the acquaintance of so many  distinguished persons is,one that should  induce a great many Canadians to attend.

Matter   of  News   That   Made  Heart Leap Madly.   '  He was a frequent visitor at the home  of the young lady. He favorably impressed  her sisters and mother by his dignified behavior and sensible conversation. He  would probably have had the same gratifying effect upon her father, but as the  latter was completely immersed in his  business he was at home very little of the  time, and when he was he generally betook himself to his study in a quiet corner of the house. The young man had a  dim recollection of being introduced to  him once and speaking a word or so, but <  since that time had not seen him at all.  However, this didn't bother him much,  and his love affair came to a focus rapidly.  When heasked the young lady to become  his wife, she referred him to her father.  "I'll see him tomorrow, dear," he replied.  "No, I,don't think you can," she.answered ; "he's going out of town on a long  business trip tomorrow, evening, and so  will not be here when you come."  "tBy Jove, then," responded the young  man, "I'll drop in on him at the office."  The next day be turned up at the place  of business of his idol's father. He knew ,  he was president of the concern. He made  his way into the president's office and  there confronted a very busy gentleman  indeed. Asking for a moment of tbe latter's time, he said, "I have dome to ask you  for your daughter's hand."  The   man   addressed    stopped,   turned '  . around and looked at him a moment and  then said, ''I'm  sorry to tell you, young  man,  but my daughter was married a  week ago."  Without waiting for an explanation, the  horror stricken suitor rushed from the  building. He hailed a cab and drove  madly to the young ludy's home.  "What-^what   does   it all  mean?"  he  gasped  as soon as he saw her.    "Speak!  What does tit mean?. I have just seen your >.  father at his office, and' he says tbat you  were married a week ago!"  "Why, Henry," she ejaculated in a  tone of astonishment, "my father? Why  he left for New York last night."  A little further conversation revealed  the fact; that Henry had been talking to  his partner.���������Chicago Times-Herald.  Not Totally Depraved.

LEATHER
TUESDAY, OCT. 19th,    1897.
The Liberal convention which met at
New Westminster should have come out
in favor of a straight Liberal provincial
ticket or kept its hands off.
THE recall of Capt. Gen. Weyler from
Cuba, shows the Spanish government
has abandoned the destructive methods
heretofore pursued. Let us hope the
beginning of the end of the terrible
struggle is at hand.
WE ought to thank, Mr. McLagan,
manager of the Vancouver World, for
recommending, one who desired to, purchase a farm in British Columbia, to
come to Comox. It was a great compliment to our'agricultural .valley and to
Union as a splendid market town. And
we were able to sell, because no where
else could one do so well.
THE report brought down from' the
north by the U. S. Seamer Alb'-rtross
shows the necessity for helping home the
mi--guided Klondikers, who left too kre
last summer to get through the passes,
and are now, stranded on the Alaskan
Coast without the means to return. The
government should   send   up a se.imer to
their assistance.
WHO will be our next provincial member? 16 a question which many are asking.
But isn't it a little early to answer. Our
observation has been that to bring any
one out a long time before election is to
kill him off. Three months of discussion
and comparison of views is ample. W hen
the time comes we should consider what,
is best for the district.
We hear some criticism of the late
Exhibition at Courtenay because the
charge of admission was 50 cents. Members whose dues are $2.50 per annum
���did not pay to get in. 'We think the
charge was reasonable.. It is worth that,
and a.great deal more, to meet the pp.ople
of the district and see their exhibits. Let
us at least have 50 cents worth of public
spirit, and be done   with this' everlasting
carping.
We learn with pleasure that the direc-
torite of the Comox Agricultural and
Industural Association proposes to give
some entertainments in their hall next
winter. -Why not begin this fall ? By
all means let the farmers and their wives
meet and work together. Their is too
much isolation, too little social life among
them, and altogether too little public
spirit. A few have had to bear the whole
burden of the late exhibition. They
have worked hard and deserve great
credit.    The new   move   is   in  the  right
direction.
"EXHIBITION   NOTES.
' The fruit'exhibit was the  best we have
seen at the Fair here.
The heney exhibited by Mr. Bridges
was a little dark in color, but of fine
flavor.
We are "some pumpkins." If any one
doubts this he should remember the big
pumpkins shown on the 7th.
Among the leading butter makers Mrs.
Childs has taken a front position���none
better than the butter she makes.
The tomatoes exhibited show they will
ripen here very well. A good many from
Comox valley have been in the market
here this yea.i.
Grapes will ripen here under favorable
conditions, as witness the splendid specimens seen at the Show. No .California
grapes ever tasted half as good.
The exhibitof bread and cakes was a
pleasant feature. That of Mr. Lucas of
the Bay was for variety and show most
excellent, but the bread by him and also
by Morrochi Bros, left nothing to be
desired. In home made bread the ladies
were closely pressed by Mr. Bouler who
has "'bached" so long be knows a thing or
two about cooking. ��� '���

They Are Perfectly Hardy and a Valuable  '   ���������        Acquisition.  Her Majesty and the Emperor are  varieties, of the comparatively-, new  Btrain of hardy ((carnation'', flowering  pinks. .���������' These pinks are the subject of a  ���������letter written by an Ulster county (N.  Y.) correspondent to Country Gentleman.  He says:  Her Majesty and the Emperor are  ���������proving a valuable acquisition. All they.  ; ask is a small bit of ground room where  the sunshine and the rain alternate in  the usual way, and then these little  plants are sure to do the rest. They are  perfectly hardy,without winter protection here along the Hudson,.and the  plant is evergreen. For two successive  seasons they have bloomed profusely  with me, emerging from the severest  winter on record here in perfect condition without a particle of protection.  Her Majesty is pure white, fringed,  rery double and very fragrant, having  the much admired clove scent., -In size,  'fragrance, fullness and substance it rivals the finest carnation very closely indeed. It is a dwarf compact grower  with nile green foliage, and it never  sends up a long, sprawling flower stem;  blooms abundantly most of the summer.  Its only fault with me is a tendency to  burst the calyx, a trouble so prevalent  with'certain carnations. y  The Emperor is a dark scarlet form  of this hardy pink. It seems somewhat  less vigorous in growth, though just as  hardy as the other, and even more florif-  erous if possible, for it lasts until frost  cuts it off in the fall. The flower is not  as large as Her Majesty, nor so double,  but it remains fresh on the stem even  longer. It is, however, not as fragrant.  Like'the white form, it hasstiff stems  and needs no support. While not as valuable as the white variety, for the rear  sons mentioned, it is wholly.free from  the calyx split and should be grown for  its deep color and perpetual bloom.    !  There are now four or five other varieties of this hardy strain of pinks  which remain to be more fully tried.  One is white, fringed; another maroon  colored,, blotched with white; another  rosy carmine, veined with silver;: a cherry red, with pink and white variegations, and still another, white, tinted  with rose.  Dy cultivation or hoeing. until after  fruiting season. Apply a mulch of  coarse manure or straw, thick enough to  prevent the growth of the weeds, in and  about the hills and rows.  Berry boxes should be made before  the season begins. Clean, we']'V made  packages neatly stenciled on tue side  with name and residence soon become  your "trade mark."  for long shipment pick every day and  before the fruit is too ripe.. Never offer  poor,"berries for sale and never use a  dirty box or a poor case.  Let markets be as near as possible  and to regular customers. <,' ���������  SURPASSED.  RUSTIC WORK FOR THE LAWN  Artistic Flower Stands of Simple and In-  / expensive Construction.        ���������������������������-,''  It is hardly possible to beautify the  home "lawn, with too many flowers, but  fchere is ample opportunity for the display, of good taste and artistic effect in  their arrangement. Where, a9 is often  the case, the space is rather limited'and  the flowers cannot be massed in borders  or beds, some disposition ��������� of them like  that suggested in the . accompanying  sketch from American Gardening is resorted to.

The authority'quoted says that the endeavor  should be to keep the wood as nearly as  possible asit Comes from the saplings  and trees, as its fustic quality is its  chief attraction.

Crozy. Mrs. Pairman Rogers, introduced last year, scarlet banded with  yellow, seems to be extremely promising. We have had glowing reports of it  from New England. In spite of all the  new acquisitions, the old Ehemanni, a  tall growing variety bearing drooping  spikes of crimson pink blossoms, is still  worth growing. The flowers are very  beautiful. This is an excellent conservatory plant in the winter, says Rural  New Yorker, in this connection. A  "pink Ehemanni" was introduced last  .year.  Among red flowered sorts, Flamingo,  with its vivid coloring, continues to retain favor. Alphonse Bouvier bears  compact spikes of purplish carmine  < flowers. Chicago has dazzling vermilion  flowers.  A New Wbite Rose.  In the cut here reproduced from Rural  New Yorker is reprinted, greatly reduced, a new white hybrid perpetual  rose which originated in Ireland and  was introduced here under the name of  Marchioness of Londonderry.

Mr.   Burpee agrees   to    the  two first  named,  but would  substitute for the  others Mrs. Josephine Chamberlain and  Blanche  Burpee.   In  bulletin 127, descriptive of another year's tests at  Cornell, A. P. Wyman found the varieties  to rank in this order: Dark purple, Waverly, Duke of Clarence; striped purple,  Gray Friar, Juanita, Senator; lavender  color, Countess of Radnor, Lottie-Eckford; white, The Bride, Emily Henderson;   primrose,    Mrs..

Thayer,   Sparta,   Wis., gives  the following advice:  Look for  the  currant  borer at this  time.   When  the  leaves start, affected  oanes commence to wither and die. Cut  cut  the  affected canes below the black  center and burn at once.  .     All newly set plants should be  thoroughly cultivated.   Weeds must not be  allowed to grow, for they consume valuable plant food  and the  moisture so  necessary to the young plant.  ,k    The roots of currants and gooseberries  of  bearing age should not be disturbed  Codling Moth and Apple Maggot.  Popular notes are given by C. M. We,ed  in a bulletin from the New Hampshire  station of the two most destructive insects affecting the fruit of the apple in  New Hampshire, the codling moth and  the apple maggot. The first named insect has apparently not. increased in de-  structiveness during the past 20 years,  while the apple maggot is undoubtedly  increasing from year to year.  For the prevention of the codling  moth, spraying with paris green is recommended, applying the insecticide  when the apples are from the size of a  pea to that of a hickory nut. Two and  in case of very wet weather three applications are recommended. For the  apple maggot spraying does not prevent  injury, since the eggs are deposited beneath the skin of the fruit, and the destruction of windfalls and general clean  culture seem to be the best way of  keeping this insect in check.  Hardy June Roses.  Hardy June roses usually get enough  pruning when the blooms are cut. Of  course if we wish to induce a long sea-  eon of bloom, no flowers should be allowed to fade upon the plant, and this  care will also induce a scattering second  crop of bloom in the autumn, so we may  cut our roses with a clear conscience.  Mrs. John Laing, a charming pink, is  one of the best second crop roses. Indeed, it may be described as the best  hardy garden rose we grow.���������Rural  New Yorker.  When the future historian gits ready to  add the annals of San Buenaba'rdinb county, to the history, of the world, he'll want  to leave many pages fer the doin's at Bcbin-;  opolls. An when he takes his pen in hand  to write them, if-he jest roller's the brail of  Cap'n Jenkins, he'll ! hit on all the places  worth stoppin,;.:afc'<;!, ? We may point, with  pride today, ���������as Colonel Fegg'ers sed in his  , groat spoech last Fourth of July, to our  hoss car, our high school an our'lectric  lights; but, arter all, as he sed ���������ag'iri,'it's  men that makes a state, an it rollers that  it's men that makes a county or a town,  nn the world wants to know what them  men done. ���������'���������;���������.' . '���������'������������������,  Ev'rybody.knew that Jenkins an Garcia  had, it ''in for each;.. other. Jdnkinshad  spilled Garcia's family blood, havin wiped  out his fathor-in-law, Dunlnp, in a feud to  the death, nn Garcia had vowed vengeance  afore a hundred witnosses. If they should  fight in the open, we knowed that tho  cap'n 'd do him, fer all that he wuz only  'bout half Garcia's size, but Garcia wuz  sly an tricky, like all the Greasers, an we  wuz afeard that he'd.waylay tho oap'n  some dark night an stab him in the back.  . We warned the cap'n to'be on his guard,  but he didn't seem to take no stock in our  sespicions. The cap'n was a changed  man anyway fer a long time arter hia  feud with Dunlap, in which Dunlap,  had ' been sent over the river. He spent  a good deal of time at home with his  wiminin an childern, an seomed to' shun  his best friends. He wuz remark'bly slow  in axceptininvertations to likker, an wuz  even known' to shako his head when we  axed him to take.a hand at seven up.  This wuz a circumstance seen as none of  us had ever heered on afore, an.it made  us very sad.' ��������� !  , A lunger from Noo Yok, who bad planted out an orange ranch in Boomopolis fer  his health,' threatened to hev the cap'n ar-,  rested fer shootin Dunlap, an then" we all  looked fer trouble fer sure,  but the cap'n  only larfed when we told him.  That didn'  seem nateral at all.    But though all of us  boys   noticed   the   change   with    regrot,  yet   we    recognized    the   fac'   that   all  _- great men   has   their moods  an   tenses,  when   they   wants   to   nurse   their   private feelin's in  sollertude an when it's  the healthiest plan to let 'em alone. ' Still,  when  the cap'n  commenced to act more  like  himself,   we  wuz  tickled   'most   to  death, an ono day, when he licked a temporary barkeep at Doc Morey's fer puttin  too much sugar in his whisky, we all felt  as though  a great,   big  cloud had' been  rolled way from  the ��������� face of- the sun an  that nature wuz a-smilin ag'in.  ... Wew.uz the better pleased at this because  'nother 'lection wuz, a-comin ouan  Billy  Skinner, the marshal, and Johnny Burke,  the sheriff, wuz both willin to serve their  constitooents ag'in.   But the law an order  element,  so  called, wuz  dead  ag'in   'em  both, an it looked like wo wuz badly beat'  unless we could put up some kind of a job.'  This would hev been easy enough, with':a  leetle gun  play "fer a  bluff, if Garcia an  some of,his pals hadn't j'ined  in  with  them, law an order tenderfeet.    This com:  bination wuz  'bout as' reasonable as  the  devil an  holy water, but it seemed likely  , to; win, or at least to end in trubble. Now,  the cap'n wuz our right bower in a fight-  He weighed more on- sech 'casions than a  wagon load of  wildcats  oh   'count of  his  repertatioh'fer a dead shot.   A wave of his  hand, a  word, a  look, out of them  steel  . blue eyes of, his'n wuz enough nine times  ���������.���������in.ten,'. ,.   ;: .VS., .  But, as .bad luck would hev it, the cap'n  bad shook hands with Garcia an called the  feud off so fer as they wuz concerned.  This misfortune had come 'bout through  Jenkins' wife, who had sometimes a most  remark'ble control over him. She wuz a  strong minded woman, an' must hev been  a beauty when she wuz young, though a  trifle lank an lantern jawed now, arter 20'  years on the fronteer an 11 children. In  his softer moments, when he wuz a-tryln  to be good, she could wind the cap'n 'roun  her. little finger. It happened that she  went to Los Angeles to visit her ��������� second  cousin soon arter the shootin of Dunlap,  an afore she went she*got the cap'n an  Garcia together an made 'em shake hands  an agree that there shouldn't be no blood  lettin between 'em until she got back!'  The cap'n took the oath to please hiswife;  Garcia becauso hewuz a snake, in the grass  anyway an it suited him to lie low.  So,it seemed like our hands wuz tied in  the 'lection, an that half breed Greaser,  Garcia, knowin this, wuz as sassy as a  parson. As ,the day fer the 'lection come  along, some of the hints an remarks which  he throwed outaggervatod us sportin boys  so much that wo'd.a-kllled him in a minit  if ary one of us had had the slightest personal provocation. .But we couldn't in-  veegle him into a quarrel with any indl-  vidool. We went in a body to the cap'n  an stated the case an suggested that he  lay fer Garcia. But the cap'n only shook  his head. "I can't do it, boys," he said;  "I promised my wife." And the thought  of his helplessness in tbe premises cramped  him so that his eyes, filled with tears, like  a baby's when it hez the colic.  The siterwation wuz -certainly very un-  promisin. It looked like our liberties wuz  'bout to be snatched away from .us by  aliens. It hurt us "to think that the town  in which we lived���������long afore the cough-  in, orange growin tenderfoot arrived���������  would shet out them things which makes  life indurable���������a glass of whisky now an  then, a friendly game of keerds, an once in  Bwhile a hoss trot, to make room fer the  real estate auction, with its brass band  an free lunch, an the Salvation Army. If  We hadn't been so mad over it, we'd he?  wept. ���������-- '   ���������������������������  Waal, 'lection day come -'long in d,ae  course of time, an we wuz all on the kee  veevey. Us sportin boys polled our votes  bright an early an then sot down to count  fioses an bet on the result. The Law and  Order league had secured an injunction  closin all the saloons while the pools wus  open, but we had loaded up with bottles  fer the 'mergency, an so we wuzh't entirely disconsolate. They couldn't keep us  off the steps of Doc Morey's place, an that  wuz our headquarters. We kep' a-watchin  fer Garcia an his gang, but they didn't  appear till way 'long in the arternoon an  at that time we figgered that the 'lection  wuz 'bout a toss up.  I 6'pose success had swelled Garcia's  head an he couldn't stand prosperity. He  ���������lowed the world wuz a lookin at him that  day, an he wuz a-goin to git even fer all  past events an to cover hin-cplf with glory.  So he kep back his gang till the laetmlnlt,  In order to make a bigger show, an then  they marched to the polls in a body, bout  5*0 on em all told, with Garcia at their  head, walkin a trifle unstiddy, as though ho  might hev a jag on. The boys wuz simply  wild, an bout 20 of us lined up 'roun tho  polls, which wuz nek' door to Morey's.  The cap'n sauntered 'long with the rest,  cool as a cucumber.  i Now p'raps them Greasers might ho'v  been 'lowed to vote an go way ag'in if  Garcia hadn't took it into his head to insult the cap'n. But the drunken fool  waltzes up.to Jenkins .an shakes his fist  under his noso an says, '���������Cap'n Jenkins,  you old fraud, this is my day, d'ye see?"  An he waved his hand at his ragged gang  a-follerin, like a lieutenant of milisliay on  parade ������  "Stan baok," says tho cap'n very quietly. But,wo could see them leetle, blue  veins in his temple swell up like whipcords an'his shoulders come back square  with a jerk. ��������� Then he took two six shooters from his hip' pockets an a derringer  from under his belt an a dirk knife out of  bis boot an handed 'em all to me, an' then  he says: "Garcia, you see that I'm unarmed. I giv' my word to my wife that I  wouldn't kill you while she wuz gone, an  lucky fer you sho ain't got back yet. Now,  if you want to shoot, w'y shoot an be  damned, but be mighty keerful that you  don't make no false motions���������on 'count  of my friends here who haven't giv' their  Word to no lady." An the cap'n waved  bis hand roun at. us.  Garcia turned pale an red an palo ag'in.  He looked, roun at his. gang, but not one  - of 'em dared pull a gun. His law an ordor  friends wa'n't to be seen. They had been  true to their principles an had scattered  at the first sign of a row. Even the jedges  of 'lection, who wuz tod fur 'way to ketch  on to all that wuz a-goin on had ecrooched  down behind, the bar'ls on which their  ���������layout had been put. An the cap'n jest  looked Garcia squarely in tho eye.  "Now, then," he sed nt last In 'bout a  minit, w'ich seemed an hour, "I gin my  word to you, but not to them duffers with  you, an I swear to God that if ary ono of  your crowd tries to put a ballot into that  'ere box I'll shoot him full of holes. Now  you git put of here an take yer dirty rabble with you."  It wuz a Waterloo all right enough.  Garcia slipped back a pace or two an tried  to slide way out of range of the cap'n's  eye. But he didn't git off quite so dead  easy as that. Us boys raised a yell���������"Hurrah fer Cap'n Jenkins I"���������that shook the  bottles on Doc Morey's shelves, an then  we pulled our guns an fired A volley roun  Garcia's legs jest to see him dance. When  we wuz done with him, he sneaked way  like a big bulldog whipped by a yaller  fyee, an his gang follered him. Not a  mother's son of 'em offered to vote. When  they'd gone a,couple of hundred yards or  so, they got into a row 'niong themselves,  an * presently we see Garcia walk up to a  great, big, black browed, beetle eyed Mexican an smash him over the jaw, an the  feller pulled a knife an flung himself at  Garcia, but the others interfeerod an stood  him off. -An then they all lit out of sight  roun the corner of the plaza, swearin an  chatterin an hollerin like a pack of crazy  coyotes.  Waal, arter awhile 'twuz sundown  an  the votes wuz..counted, an we found that  the Law an Order league was snowed un-,  der by two votes.   I tell you us fellers felt  happy then.    Soon  as the result wuz declared Doc Morey, throwed his place wide  open an every man in the crowd insisted  on treatin the cap'n.    But in spite of his^  popularity with the boys the cap'n seemed  oneasy an dissatisfied. Ho kep' a-pacin up  an down the room, an half the time barely  touched his likker to his lips, an then sot  down the glass. We remonsterated at this,  an Cap'n Jenkins sed: "Boys, don't take  oo offense.    I don't s'pose you understan  'xactly how I feel, an langwidge fails me  to properly 'xpress myself.    I don't regret  what I done today, orrutherwhat I didn't  do.    The word of a Jenkins is a sacred  thing,   specially when  it's pledged to'a  ���������woman an that woman the woman who he  loves an hez swore to cherish an protect.  An yet the fac' stares me  in the face that  a sneakin, hulkin, skulkin Greaser shook  his dirty fist under my nose today an still  lives.    Boys, is this thing true?   Or be I  a-walkin in my sleep?"  We could all see that if this thing kep'  'long 'twould drive tho cap'n crazy. So,  jest to divert his mind, we started a game  of faro, an wo soon had the money rollin  high. I remember that I'd won $100 on  tbe 'lection an wuz feelin pretty good. We  all bet freoly, an being 'bliged to fix his  mind upon the game Cap'n Jenkins sorter  come to an acted a trifle moro liko himself.  The revelry wuz at its height when we  heered .two shots in quick succession.  There wuz a lot of money on the table.  The cap'n sprung from his cheer an spread  his hands out like the Prophet Samuel in  the Bible pictcrs an sed to the dealer:  "Jack, change in.    Garcia's dead."  We all rushed out of course an 'cross the  plaza an roun tho corner an into some  . vacant lots, an thero we found him���������dead.  Both shots had struck him, an either one  on :em would hev killed. There wuz a  hedge jest afore you come to the lots, an  behind it, as I wuz a-runnin 'long, I picked  up two empty shells, still a trifle warm.  'Twuz plain that some' one had waylaid  him.  The hull town soon collected on the  spot, but nobody teched the corpse till  Cap'n Jenkins took it by the shoulder an  turned it over. We all waited fer what he  wuz a-goin to say, an it wuz this: He lifted his hands .up toward the stars, like a  play actor in a theater, an sed in a deep  an solemn voice, "Thou hast escaped me,  O' mine enemfy I" Then he turned to me,  an speakin more like Cap'n Jenkins ha  remarked., "An.if.there'B revolvers in heav  en I'm agoin to shoot him right between  the eyes."-��������� William M.

REV. DR. TALMAGE   PAYS  A  HIGH  TRIBUTE TO THE BAR.  uexongs  He Treats the Profession of taw.From ai  Moral and Religious Standpoint���������Dnties  of the Christian "Lawyer���������Many Temptations.  Washington, June 27.���������Dr. : Talmage's  sermon to-day has a special interest for  lawyers, and all who expect to be, lawyers, and all who are the friends of  lawyers.- His text is Titus iii, 13, "Bring  Zenas the lawyer."  The profession of the law is here introduced, and within two days in the Capital City 303   young   men   joined it, and  at this season in   various,   parts :- of   the  land other hundreds'are takingtbeir   diplomas  for   that   illustrious   profession^  and is it not appropriate that   I   address  such young men from a moral   and   re-  ' ligious, standpoint, as upon them tiro now  [rolling the responsibilities of that calling  jl represented in   the, text   by   Zenas   the  I lawyer? .'.'.'���������������������������������������������     "'��������� 7:7  1 We all admire Jihu heroio and rigbus  side of Paul's nature, as when he stands  coolly deliberate on the deck of tho corn-  ship while the jack tars of the Mediterranean aro cowering in tho cyclone; as  when he stands undauncd amid the marbles of the palace before thick necked  Nero, surrounded with his 12 cruel lio-  tors; as when wo And him earning his  livelihood with his own needle, sewing  haircloth and rjroaching the gospel in tho  interstices; as when we find him ablo to  take-the 39 lashes, every stroko of which  fetched the blood, yet continuing in his  missionary woi'k; as when we find him,  regardless of the consequence to himself,  delivering a temperance lecture to Felix,  the government inebriate. But sometimes we catch a glimpse of the mild and  genial side of Paul's nature.' It seems  that he had a friond who was a barrister  by profession. His naino was Zenas, and  he wanted to see him. Perhaps he had  formed the acquaintance.of this lawyer  In the courtroom. Perhaps sometimes  when he wanted to ask some question  In regard to Roman law he went to this  Zenas the lawyer. At any rate he had a  warm attachment for the man, and he  provides for his comfortable escort and  entertainment as , h'e writes to Titus,  "Bring Zenas the lawyer."  This man of my text belonged to a  profession in which are many ardent supporters of Christ and tho gospel, among  them Blackstone, tho great commentator  on English law, and Wilberforce, tho  emancipator, and the late Benjamin F.  Butler, attorney-general of New York.  and the late Charles Chauncey, the leader of the Philadelphia bar,'and Chief  Justices Marshall and Tcntcrdcn and  Campbell and Sir Thomas More, who  died for the truth on the scaffo d, saying  to his aghast executioner: "Pluck up  courage, man, and do your duty. My  neck is very short. Bo careful therefore,  and do riot strike awry."  A Afiehty Pica.  Among the mightiest pleas that ever  have been made by tongue of barrister  have been pleas in behalf of the Bible  and Christianity, as when Daniel Webster stood in the supreme court at Washington pleading in the famous Girard  will case, denouncing any attempt to  educate the people without giving them  J at the same time moral sentiment as  j "low> ribald and vulgar   deism   and in-.  ��������� fidelity'; as when Samuel L. Southard of  j New Jersey, the leader of the forum in,  j his "day, stood on the platform at Prince-  ; ton college commencement advocating  I the literary excellency of the Scriptures;  ���������f as when Edmund Burke, in the famous  trial of Warren Hastings, not only iri behalf of the English government, but in  behalf of elevated morals, closed his  speech in the midst of the most august  assemblage ever gathered in Westminster  hall by saying: "I impeach Warren Hastings in the name of the House of Commons, whose national character he has  dishonored; I impeach him in the name  of the people of India, whose rights and  liberties he has subverted; I impeach  him in the name of human nature,  which he has disgraced. -In the name of  both sexes, and of every rank, and of  i every station, and of every situation in  ���������Sthe world, I impeach Warren Hastings."  Yet, notwithstanding all the pleas  .which that profession has made in behalf of God, and the church, and the  1 gospel, and the rights of   man, there has  ��������� come   down   through     the   generations  [ among   many   people   an   absurd    and  wicked prejudice against it. So long ago  j as in the time of Oliver Cromwell it was  I decided that lawyers -might not enter  i the parliament house as members, and  j they were called "sons of Zeruiah." The  ! learned   Dr. Johnson   wrote an   epitaph  for one of them in these words:���������  \    God works wonders now and then.  ''    Here lies a lawyer, an honest man 1  Two hundred years ago a treatise   was  issued with   tho   title, "Doomsday Approaching With Thunder and   Lightning  ' For Lawyers.''     A prominent clergyman  of the last  century wrote   in   regard   to  that profession these words:   " Thero is a  j society of men among   us   bred up from  . their youth in the art of proving, accord--  j ing as they are paid,   by   words   multiplied for the purpose that white is  black  , and black is white.    For example, if my  neighbor has a mind to my cow, ho hires  ' a lawyer to prove   that he ought to have  my cow from me.     I must   hire another  lawyer   to   defend   my   right, it   being  against all   rules   of   law   that   a   man  should speak for himself.      In   pleading  they do not dwell upon the merits of the  cause, but   upon   circumstances   foreign  | thereto.      For instance, they do not take  : the shortest method   to know what   title  ; my   adversary   has     to   my   cow,   but  ! whether the   cow   be   red or   black, her  j horns long or short, or   the like.     After  : that they adjourn the   cause   from   time  j to time and in 20   years they come to an  i issue.  This society likewise has a peculiar  cant or jargon of   their   own, in   which  all   their   laws   are   written, and   these  ', they   take   especial   care   to    multiply,  ! whereby they have so confounded   truth  and falsehood   that it will take 12   years  to decide whether the field left   to me bv  my ancestors   ���������,,.' -ions  to me or to one 300 miles off."     '  I say these things to show you that  there has been a prejudice going on down  against that profession from generation  to generation. I account for it on , the  ground that they compel men , to pay  debts that they do not want to pay, and  that they arraign criminals who want  to escape the consequences of thein crime,  and as long as that is so, and it always  will be so, justs so long there will bs  classes of men who will affect at any  rate, to despise thev legal profession. I  know hot how it, is iri other countries,  but I have had long arid wide acquaintance with men of that profession���������I have  found them in all my parishes, I tarriefl  in one of their offices for three years, where  there came real estate lawyers, insurance  lawyers, criminal lawyers, marine lawyers���������and I have ,yet to find a class of  men more genial or more straightforward. There are, in that occupation, as  in all our occupations, men utterly obnoxious to God and man. But if I were  on trial for my integrity or my life, and  I wanted even handed justice administered to me, I would rather havo nay  case submitted to a jury of 12 lawyers  ; than to. a jury of 12 clergymen. The  legal profession, I believe, has less violence of prejudice than is to.be found in  the sacred calling.  , .���������.-,   Temptations.  Thero is, however, no man who has  more temptations or graver responsibilities than the barrister, and ho who attempts to discharge the duties ' of his  position with only earthly resources is  making a very great mistake. Witness  the scores of men who have in that profession made eternal shipwreck. Witness  the man who, with the law of the land  under their arm, have violated every  statute of the eternal God. Witness the  men who Iiave argued placidly before  earthly tribunals, who shall shiver in  dismay before the Judge of quick and  dead. , Witness Lord Thurlow announcing his loyalty to earthly government in  the.sentence, "If I-forget my earthly  sovereign,r.may God forget,me," and yet  stooping to unaccountable meannesses.  Witness Lord Coke, the learned and the  reckless. Witness Sir^George McKenzie,  tho execrated of all Scotch Covenanters,  so that until this day, in Gray Friars',  churchyard, Edinburgh, the children  whistle through the bars of the tomb,  crying: ���������  Bloody Mackenzie, come out if you daur.  Lift the sneok and draw the bar.  No other profession more needs the  grace of God to deliver them in their  trials, to sustain them in the discharge  of their duty;. While I would have you  bring the merchant to Christ, and while  I would,have you bring the farmer to  Christ, and while I. would have you  bring the mechanio to Christ,I address  you now in the words of Paul to Titus,  "Bring Zenas the.lawyer." By so much  as his duties are delicate and great, by  so much does he need Christian stimulus  and safeguard. We all become clients. I  do not suppose there is a mari'50 years  of age who has been in active life who  has not been afflicted with a lawsuit.  Your name is assaulted, and you must  have legal protection. Your boundary  line is invaded, and tho courts must reestablish it. Your patent is infringed  upon, and you must make the offending  manufacturer vpay the penalty. Your  -treasures are taken, and the thief must  be apprehended. you want to^ make  your will and you do not want to follow  the example of those who, for the sake  of saving ������100 from an attorney, imperil  ������250.000, and keep tho generation for  20 years qiiarreling about the estate,  until it is all exhausted. You are struck  at by an-assassin, and you must invoke  for him the penitentiary. All classes of  persons in-course of time become clients,  and therefore they are all interested in  the morality and the ^Christian integrity  of the legal profssiom "Bring Zenas the  lawyer." '.'���������''.  Treatment of Clients. -  But how is an attorney to decide as to  what are the principles by which he  should conduct himself in regard to his  clients? On one extreme Lord Brougham  will appear, saying: "The innocence or  guilt of your client is'nothing to you.  You are to save your client regardless of  the torment, the suffering, the destruction of all others. "You are to know but  one man in the world���������your client. You  are to save him though you should bring  your country into confusion. At all hazards you must save your client." So says  Lord Brougham. But no right minded  lawyer could adopt that sentiment. On  the other extreme Cicero will come to  you and say, "You must never plead the  cause of a bad man," forgetful of the  fact that the greatest villain on earth  ought to have a   fair   trial   and that an  THE FERN GOLD MINING AND MILLING COMPANY,  LIMITED LIABILITY.

Q;  attorney cannot be judge and advocate  at the same time. It was grand when  Lord Erskine sacrificed his attorney generalship for the sake of defending  Thomas Paine in his publication of his  book called "The Rights of Man," while  at the same time he, the advocate, abhorred Thomas Paine's irreligious sentiments. Between these two opposite  theories of what is right, what shall the  attorney do? God alone can direct him.  To that chancery he must bo appellant,  and he will get an answer in an hour.  Blessed is that attorney between whose  offico and the throne of God there is perpetual, reverential and prayerful communication. That attorney will never  mako an irreparable mistake. True to  the habits of your profession you say  "Cite us some authority on the subject."  Well, I quote to you the decision of the  supreme court of heaven, "If any lack  wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth  to all men liberally and upbraideth not,  and it shall be given him."  What a scene is the office of a busy attorney ! In addition to the men who come  to you from right motives, bad men will  come to you. They will offer you a large  fee for counsel in the wrong direction.  They want to know from you how they  can escape from solemn martial obligation. They come to you wanting to know  how they can make the insurance company pay for a destroyed house which  they burned down with their own hands,  or they come to you on the simple errand  of wanting to escape payment of their  honest debts.  Mow, it is no easy thing to advise settlement, when by urging, litigation you  could strike a -mine of remuneration. It  is not a very easy thing to dampen the  ardor of an inflamed contestant, when  you know through a prolonged lawsuit  you could get from him whatever you  asked. It is no easy thing to attempt to  discourage the suit for the breaking of a  will in the surrogate's court because you  know, the testator was of'sound mind  and body when he signed the document.  It requires no small heroism to do as I  once heard an attorney do . in an office  in a western city. I overheard the conversation when he said, "John, you can  go on with this lawsuit, and 1 will see  you through as well as I can, but I want  to tell you before you start that a lawsuit is equal to a fire." Under the tremendous temptations that come upon the  legal profession there are scores of men  who have gone down, and some of them  froni being the pride of the highest tribunal of the state have become a disgrace  to the Tombs courtroom. Every attorney,  in addition to the innate sense of right,  wants the sustaining power of the old  fashioned religion of Jesus Christ. "Bring  Zenas the lawyer." c  Skepticism.  There are two or three forms of temptation to which the legal profession is  especially subject. The first of all is skepticism. Controversy is the lifetime business of that occupation. Controversy may  be incidental or accidental with us, but  with you it is perpetual. You get so used  to pushing the sharp question "Why?"  and making unaided reason superior to  the ernotions, that the religion of Jesus  Christ, which is a simple matter of faith  and above human reason, although not  contrary to it, has but little chance with  some of you. A brilliant orator wrote a  book on the first page of which ho announced this sentiment, "An honest God  is the noblest work of man I" Skepticism is the rfnghtiest temptation of the  legal profession, and that man who can  stand in that profession, resisting all  solicitations to infidelity, and can be as  brave as George Briggs of Massachusetts,  who stepped from the gubernatorial chsrtr  to the missionary convention, to plead  the cause of a dying race; then on his  way home from the convention, on a  cold day, took off his warm cloak and  threw it over the shoulders of a thinly  clad missionary, saying, "Take that and  wear it; it will do you more good than  it will me," or, like Judge John  McLean,, who can step from the supreme  court room of the United States on to  the anniversary platform of the American  Sunday School union, its most powerful  orator, deserves congratulation and encomium. Oh, men of the legal profession,  let me beg of you to quit asking questions in regard to religion and begin believing 1  The mighty men of your profession,  Story and Kent and Mansfield, became  Christians, not through their heads, but  through their hearts. "Except ye becoine  as a little child, ye shall in no wise enter  the kingdom of God." If you do not  become a Christian, O man of the legal  profession, until you can reason this  whole thing out in regard to God and  Christ and the immortality of the soul  you will never become a Christian at all.  Only believe. "Bring Zenas the lawyer."  SabbutH Breaking.  Another mighty temptation for the  legal profession is Sabbath breaking.  The trial has been going on for 10 or 15  days. The evidence is all in. It is Saturday night. The judge's gavel falls on the  desk, and he says, "Crier, adjourn Che  court until 10 o'clock Monday morning."  On Monday morning the counselor is to  sum up the case. Thousands of dollars,  yea, tho reputation and life of his client  may depend upon the success of his plea.  How will he spend the intervening Sunday? There is not one lawyer out of a  hundred that can withstand the temptation to break the Lord's day under such  circumstances, and yet if he does he  hurts his own soul. What, my brother,  you cannot do before 12 o'clock Saturday  night or after 12 o'clock Sunday night  God does not want you to do at all. Besides that, you want the 24 hours of Sabbath rest to give you that electrical and  magnetic force which will be worth  more to you before the jury than all the  elaboration of your case on the sacred  day. My intimate and lamented friend,  the late Judge Neilson, in his interesting  reminiscences of Rufus Choate, says that  during the last case that gentleman tried  in .New York the court adjourned from  Friday until Monday on account of the  illness of Mr. Choate. But the chronicler  says that on the intervening Sabbath he  saw Mr. Choate in the old , brick church  listening to the Rev. Dr. ' Gardiner  Springer. I do not know whether on the  following day Rufus Choate won his  cause or lost it, but I do know that his  Sabbath rest did not do him any harm.  Every lawyer is entitled to one day's rest  out of seven. If he surrenders that, he  robs three���������God, his own soul and his,  client. Lord Castlereagh and Sir Thomas  Romilly were the leaders of the bar in  their day. They both died suicides. Wil-  berforce accounts for their aberration of  intellect on the ground that they were  unintermittent in their work and they  never rested on Sunday. "Poor felidw!"  said Wilberforce in regard to Castlereagh;  "poor fellow, it was nonobservance of the  Sabbath." Chief Justice Hale says,  "When I do not properly keep the Lord's  day,'all the rest of the week is unhappy,  and unsuccessful in my worldly , employment. '' ,r  I quote to-day from the highest statute  book in   the   universe,   "Remember   the  Sabbath day to keep it holy."    The legal  gentleman who breaks that statute   may  seem for awhile to be advantaged,   but in  the long run the men who   observe   this  law of God will   have   larger   retainers,  vaster influence, greater professional suc-  cesF   ,than r those   men   who    break   the  statute.     Observance   of   the law of God  pays not only   spiritually   and eternally,  but it pays in hard dollars or bank bills.  Another   powerful   temptation   of the  legal profession is to artificial    stimulus.  No one except those who have   addressed  audiences knows   '-.bout   the nervous exhaustion that sometimes comes afterward.  The   temptation   of   strong    drink   approaches the legal profession at that very  point.  Then, a trial coming on.  Through  the ill-ventilated   courtroom   the   barrister^ health has been   depressed   for days  and for weeks.  He wants to rally his energy. He is tempted to resort to artificial  stimulus.    It is either   to get himself up  or lit himself down that this  temptation  comes   upon   him.    The   flower   of   the  American bar, ruined in   reputation and  ruined in   estate,    said   in    his last moments: "This is the end.   I am dying on  a borrowed bed, covered with a borrowed  sheet, in a house built by public charity.  Bury me under that tree in the middle of  the field, that I may not be   crowded.    I  always have been crowded."  The Great Future.  Another   powerful    temptation   of the  legal profession is to   allow   the absorbing   duties of the profession   *.o shut out  thoughts of the great future.    You know  very well that you   who   have   so   often  tried   others will after awhile   be put on  trial yourselves.  Death will serve on you  a writ of ejectment, and you will  be put  off these earthly premises.    On   that day  all the affairs of your life will be presented  in a "bill of particulars."' No  certiorari  from a higher court,. for this is the highest court.  The day when Lord Exeter was  tried for high treason;  the day when the  House of Commons   moved   for   the, impeachment of Lord Lovat; the days when  Charles I and Queen   Caroline   were put  upon trial; the day when Robert Emmet  was arraigned as an insurgent;    the   day  when Blennerhasset was brought into the  courtroom becauso   he   had tried to overthrow the   United   States   government,  and all tho other great trials of the world  are nothing   compared   with   the   great  trial in which   you   and   I shall appear,  summoned before the Judge of quick arid  dead.  There will   be   no pleading there "the  statute   of     limitations,"   no  "turning  state's evidence," trying to   get   off ourselves while others   suffer,   on   "moving  for a non-suit."    The   case will oome on  inexorably, and we shall be tried.     You,  my brother, who have so often been   advocate for others,   will then   need an advocate for yourself.    Have   you   selected  him, the   Lord   Chancellor   of the Universe?   If any man   sin, we have: an advocate���������Jesus Christ the righteous.   It is  uncertain when your case   will be called  on. "Be ye also ready.'  they be carried irffco the 'same room aud  laid down on sofas side by side that they  might talk over old times and talk over  the future. So they were carried in, and  lying there on opposite sofas they talked  over their old contests at the bar, and  when they talked of the future world,  upon which, they must soon enter. It was  said to have been a very affecting and  solemn interview between Mr. Wallace  and Lord Ashburton. My subject to-day  puts you side by side with those' not in  your profession who have departed this  life, some of them skeptical and rebellious, some of them penitent,, childlike  and Christian. ' Those were wandering  stars for whom is reserved the blackness  of darkness forever, while these others  went tip from the courtroom of earth to  the throne of eternal dominion. Through  Christ the advocate these got glorious  acquittal. In the other case it was a  hopeless lawsuit���������an unpardoned sinner  versus the Lord God Almighty.' Oh,  what disastrous litigation! Behold, he  comes! The Judge, the Judge, the clouds  of heaven, the judicial ermine, the great  white throne, the judicial bench, the  archangel's voice that shall wake the  dead; the crier, "Come, ye blessed; depart ye cursed!" the acquttial or the  (Condemnation. "And I saw the dead,,  small and great, stand before God, and  the books were opened."  A Everblooinlng- Plant. >  The new hardy climbing rose now being introduced under the name of Empress of China seems to be a really valu-*  able novelty. It is readily established  and grows very rapidly; its foliage is  dense, graceful and of a rich green oolor.  The plant begins to bloom the first season, and continues to grow and bloom  till after the coming ot frosts, and what  is especially commendable is the fact  that it is perfectly hardy. The prairie  roses are excellent climbers and produce  beautiful flowers, but their season is only  for a short period during midsummer.  The climbing hybrid perpetual roses  rarely make a satisfactory growth for a  pillar or wall and bloom but sparingly  during autumn. But here we have a  climbing rose that grows almost as freely  as a prairie rose, blooms continuously  from spring until late iri the autumn,  and will endure the winter with perfect  safety and be ready for serivce early in -  the spring, enlarging from year to year,  and yielding a display of flowers  throughout the season that elicits praise  and admiration from all observers.  The Empress of China, like other  China roses, is of medium size, but the  petals are rather broad and of good substance, and when full blown the form is  moderately full and the fragrance emitted is deliciously sweet. The buds' are  gracefully pointed and of a bright carmine rose color. As they develop, however, they change to tho beautiful rosy  white which is so much admired in the  lovely apple bloom. For the buttonhole  the half open bud with a spray of the  foliage is exquisite, and for a modest  hand boquet the vigorous clusters of buds  and flowers, with their accompanying  foliage, are all that could be desired.  "Grows like a morning glory and is as  hardy as a grapevine," writes ono enthusiastic florist. His enthusiasm may have  carried his,description too far, but this  new climbing rose is evidently one of  more than passing merit, and deserves  the attention of all who wish an ever  blooming, hardy climbing rose.-���������Woman's Home Companion.  Lord Ashburton and Mr. Wallace were  leading barristers in their day. They  died about the same time. A few months  before their decease they happened to be  in the same hotel in a village, the one  counsel going to Devonshire, the other  going to London. They had both been  seized upon by a disease which they knew  would be fatal, and   they requested that '  How to Clean Your Lamp.  "Do you want to know how to polish  the lens of your lamp?" asked the repair  man. '' If you do, here you are: First  clean the surface with a pad of cotton  waste and then cover tho pad with cotton velvet charged with fine rouge. This  will not only remove the scratches, but  will impart brillancy to the glass.  Lenses in lanterns should not only be  clean and clear, but should be brilliant  as well, and brilliancy comes partly from  polishing." <.���������  The stock of the Bank of England  notes which are paid in five years fills  13,400 boxes, which, if plaoed side by  side, would reach over two miles.

The road this   side    of Huwe's   is being  put to a short distance in good condition;   i  but the company    should get to  work and  straighten it'out   in front   of their row of  new cotages.  Last Saturday there were three men working ou the   Trunk   road   near   Roy's;_five  working   on the   road a little   beyond tne  the Trent river   bridge,    and tvo working  on the road a little   this   side of Howe's.  Unless gravel is put on the road from  the Trent river bridge through the wet  laud it will not be passable after the first  fall rain3. The road is well graded and  rounded up here but sofc and without  gravel; caa only be   used in   dry weather.  A bad link in a clnin spoils it; so with  the Roy road; the miserable corduroy ia  terribly rough and in places old and rotten. A little money would suffice to,cover it with dirt and an overlay of gravel.  With a littic attention ��������� th.<;re would be a  comfortable road rouud to Courtenay. It  will take so little to do this, and it has  been left so long undone, that we intend  to play upon this string until theje bad  places are put in fair condition.
