The hearing took place bedim! closed doors, Mr. Russell Simpson  appearing      for   the  prosecution  Mr. Martin of     Nanaimo for the defence.  A plea of--   not guilty was entered  Ijy hotb lads.  Mr.  D.  Nicholson was called     and  gave evidence as follows:  "My name is Donald Nicholson and  I am lessee of the Ladysmith Opera  Mouse. I have a large number of  chairs in the Opera House. On Friday last a lady came to my house  and said she had seen three chairs in  the yard by the Opera'House. 4This  was about eight o'clock in the evening. The lady was Mrs. McNeil,  who resides on Hunter's property.  I then went out and looked for the  chairs    but could     not find any.     1  as  T.'   "   At  this point Mr. Martin  said     he Was  obliged to object     to'  this part being token as evidence as'  the Constable had not     warned th������  accused 'before     he got this information.  Witness:     "f had not yet arrested  the^Jboys     when  I got this  information.       Proceeding,     he said he had  asked    Sfcre   how     many chairs he  took,and the boy had said he did not  know.    Again counsel for .the defence  arose, saying he still objected to this  evidence being taken, and asked their  Worships  to note    ojbjeclion.        HIb'j  asked the court if they would rule oiy  object on now.     He understood from  his learned friend that, tliere was no  ���������  other   evidence to be taken, and contending that the Constable's evidence  could     not be    taken- on the grounds  previously stated, he^moved that the  court dismiss the case.   : Proceeding, .  the counsel read, from a law book a  section which stated that ukiess such  a warning    was given the statement  made by the   accused to the constable when arrested ��������� could not be used  the pro-  She said that on Jan. 1st Mr. John  ) son had      killed a chicken  and fifteen  minutes later     had found there were  two dead  instead of one.

The stout hearted  pioneers were too busy hewing- paths  and' blazing trails to cultivate life's  finer side. Thcir's  was  the rough  work of field and camp, of hanumar  and saw. But times, men and'manners, have changed, and a new conception of dress has sprang up. Especial:)', yoiiaig men recognize the  direct relation of correct dress in  business and social preferment. The  well dressed man carries his introduction -with him���������he is master of  himself and of the situation. He.  commands the respect of others because he shows that he respects him  self.  It is true that there are some men  of wealth tuul position who slur  their clothes and oven some who  feign to scorn the niceties of dress.  The habits of a careless youth have  left their imprint o������ such men,, and  it isqiiitc certain that their disdain  of dress played no part in their success and detracts measurably  from their enjoyment of it, for, after., all, the ripest fruit of success is  (' e esteem of one's fellows, and who  c.-.n esto-'in the sloven?

I  could get     no iufrmation iintil i\ was  going- home     to. supper,  when  I saw  saw    Robbie     SiiM c   and  asked him  what  he    had done with  the     chairs  which lie had    taken   from   the  Opera  House.      lie said     he  bad not  taken  them, but; directly afterward   he said  'Martin  W'oodburn   look some as well  sponsible in such a case. What they  had done was simply out of mischief. They meant no harm. Look  at this lad, " pointing to one oi the  accused, " his eyes are sparkling  with mischief and if he took the  chairs he Was merely talcing ihem for  fun, meaning aj:psoliitely no harm, but  being deliberately incited to enact a  crime, by an elderly man, whose detestable method, of encouraging the  boys wasby purchasing rroin them  the stolen goods."  Mr. Simpson did not agree with  his learned friend. The clause referred to by the defence says, that  when arrested a person should, be  warned that what he said would be  taken as evidence against him, but  when the boy made; the statement  referred to he was Jrot in custody, so  no warning was. necessary.  The argument continued on these  lines for some time, when the coyrt  decided to adjourn for a few. minutes  to consider the question. Upon reopening .Mr. Matheson announced  that the information was dismissed.  He said that he and his colleague  were of the opinion that parents  were in a large measure to blame for  such bother as this. They should  keep boys in at night and not allow  1 ivm to run the streets. It was, in.  their opinion mainly on account of  iK-glect on. their part .that boys were  continually getting into trouble.

It was not  ,i)J(til the music was finished that Ir-  .ving asked him his terms.  "Your    term's',are   mine,"   replied  .the young comPosor.   Whereupon Irving turned tp Bram Stoker,      who  .was standing by, and asked'  "How much did you pay Sullivan  and Mackenzie?"  Both  these  composicrs  had  reached  the top of the ladder and      were receiving enormous  prices  for      thai  compositions.    When  Irving  was told  the price, he said to German'  "You will receive the same."  It is always said of Irving that lie  never required more  of the members  of his company than he had' a right  to expect  in proportion to the   salary paid.   Ho knew better than most  actor-managers the market value  of  talent, and he paid accordingly.  One  day when superintending Lyceum   rehearsals a super intensely      annoyed  him.    The super had one  line to say  which was: "The enemy are upon us"  The .tone of Voice this super assumed saon got on Irving's nerves.  "For heaven's sake," he exclaimed,  "speak as if the enemy were in the  wing.    They   might  bo  miles     away  from the way you say it."  "If I could say itibetter I should  be earning more than 25 shillings a  week," he retorted.        b  "Is that ail you get?" asked Sir  Henry. "Yes, and I hawe others besides myself to keep."  "Very well, then, speak it as you  like," but before the first night the  super ,was speaking, his lines as "the  governor" wished him to, and the  Lyceum exchequer was debited with  more than  25  shillings a week      in  consequence.  *   *   *  FAME'S  PATHWAY.

In' the November number of North  A.ufjiican     Review  Frederic  C.   Pen-  licid, who recently paid a visit of several  months     to Japan     and China,  writes of "Japan's Commercial Aspirations'."   The'     determination   of   the  Japanese     people  lo take advantage  of the opportunity now presented to  them :s well-nigh  unanimous,  though  they are wen aware that they cannot  uvako the   ��������� most of it without an ..immense amount of     hard work.     The  natural resources     of Japan arc considerable.      Agriculturally,. Japan  is  nearly as unproductive as Areece   or  Norway, and Japan cannot be consul  ered a producer     of .minerals of sulli-  cicnt importance to aspire to a profitable .career   through   them,   though  the situation may be changed to some  'extpnt when  she has had time to tle-  vtii.M the    vast beds of coal and iron  :   l..c southern     portion of SaghaMn.  ... I Japan aspires to  he the Asiatic  equivalent of Great Britain, and it is  known to he her plan to colonize Co-  ica and Manchuria, in which,,.because  of certain advantages  of geographical  position and of allinity with the population,  she   must,   despite  the  open  door,  achieve and maintain commercial primacy in competition with oth  er nations.      One'outstanding  ambition of the Japanese people is to create an ocean commerce great enough  to,make them the carriers of the Or  ient and the mercantile fleets now  flying their flags, and the shipyards  now in operation, give good promise  that \this ambition will be (uliy .realized. In that case the dream of  'sanguine Americans that the stars  and stripcst will dominate the Pacific, will be unfulfilled.- But, even so,  the United States will be an active  partner in the trade of the Far East  for the workshops and mills of Japan must look to America for the  greater part of the raw material on  which they are to employ themselves.  Mr.  Pcnfield says:  "In  1894 Japan     had only C57,2(i!)  tons of     merchant shipping; - she has  now upwards of a million tons,- represented by   five  thousand, registered  vessels.   Almost     half the steamers  entering     Japanese     ports fly     the  Rising Sun, and Japan's tonnage at  this time is greater than that      of  Russia,   Austria,   Sweden,  Denmark,  or Holland.   In the  matter ol oversea tonnage Japan is far ahead     of  the United States.   One fleet of 'Japanese mail steamers, the Nippon Yii-  son   Kaisha,   whose  president,   Rem-  pei  Kondo,  is  one of Japan's most  progressive  men,   is, numerically  and  in     tonnage larger  than any ocean1  line under the stars and stripes.    It  has  seventy ships,  aggregating  236,-  000     tons.    A  dozen  of its vessels,  making the service between  Yokohama and   . London, are fourteen-kiiot  ships.

C.  AN  EYE TO      BUSINESSS  Royalty often assumes the role of a  shop assistant. Princess LoulKe,  Duchess of Argylll, takes endless  pains in suiting her bazaar customers; the duchess of Connaught also  does brisk business * and Princess  Christian  is   a tireless   worker.  It is now nearly twenty years ago  since the late Lady Granville Gordon started a hat shop.  Countess  Fabhricott,   a pretty  Englishwoman, \% among  the latest recruits  to  our  socity  milliners;  among others are Mrs.  "Bertie'' Dormer, .   cousin  of  Lord   Dormer,  and  Lady Rachel Byng,.. daughter of'Lord  Strafford.   The  Hon.  Algernon Burke  brother'of the     Earl of Mayno, has  started  a bric-a-brac   bus mess   in  Venice: the     Hon.   Sirs. Granville Knox  ���������who  began  her  business,, career  as  a-manicurist���������was   un  in      a smart shop that  sold Italian  furniture in London.    It is an open  .secret that Lady Wimborne is     tho  chief  proprietor  of  a hiook shop     in  Dover     street.    Then   Mrs.   Patrick  Heron  Maxwell   i uns   a florist's  business with success, and Miss Kerr, an  unmarried daughter oi 'the late lord  Frederick      Kerr,    keeps  a servants'  registry in     Lower Belgrave street.  The Countess of Warwick no longer  maintains  a tngeric  shop in      Bond  street, but the hotel,in Reading now  affords  ample  proof  of .her    plucky,  enterprising    charatter.   The Duchess  of Abcrcorn has a creamery near Ba-  eonscouit;    Lady     Essex is said   to  i jivc started a laundry near Loaion,  a-d the     Hon. Frances  Woiesiey has  a svhcol  for   women  gardeners       at  Giynde,, in Sussex.      '   ,o���������   Russia is rapidly advancing in the  direction of civilization. And the  fight with the heathen pigmy is responsible for it. That country has  new decided among many other things  (o adopt T.ne Gregorian calendar in  place of the Julian. This means that  cne of these nights, when the Russian  rc-op'ic retire, to their beds for their  night's rest, the new calendar win  permit thirteen days to slip by instead cf one. Russia is the only  country in Europe that has persisted  in using  the old style.  Ipostors. . The father of the elderly  iliidy who told tiie story was himself a deacon of the church, and he  had a "powerful weakness" for the  beer that was brewed at a small  brewery  in  the  ncigliLorhood.  One afternoon he chanced to he  walking along the road, when he  saw Dr. Hopkins come out of lift  brewery, place a jug under the' seat  of his buggy and climb in. The deacon accosted him and asked for a  ride to town. The request was  tgranted. As soon as the horse had  an'd resumed its even trot down the  road the deacon said:  "Well, parson, you arc discovered.  I saw you put something suspicious  under the scat of the buggy, but 1  promise nob to ttn it you will divide with me."  The eminent divine tu,-ned upoa'him  ir7uiWTatcTy!aben1!snan,t smile-;as he sai(1:   "So  ���������<   ���������_i.i  Tj-n....    you "&ve caught me practicing  what  I preach.   '  I say it is a matter  for  each  man's   conscience.    Now   I feel  that I am  justified in getting     that  jug  from the brewery.  I shall       not  drink  a drop of  it.    I got  it  for my  wife;  but if you   want a drink you are  welcome  lo all you can lake     from  the mouth /of the jug. I  ha^'e no cup"  "Thank you, parson," the deacon   returned.   "If your  wife drinks beer,  1  am pure you will not tell on me. Let  me have the jug  when   we reach yon-  Elrong  pull.    Suddenly he  began     to  cough,  sneeze  and splutter,   while    a  torrent    of  bubbling     brewer's yeast  ���������spread averjiis face, his hair and his '  clothing.    It  ran   down   the  back  of  his coat and the  front of h.s  shirt,   i  it got into his eyes,  his  ears and'his  nose;   but  the  parson comforted   him  by saying:  sunshine  urnac  "You see,   I never drink it.  it lot my wife.''  I   got  MAKE  YOURSELF  KNOWN.  How professional men  make       acquaintances can be illustrated by the  story of two men whom I know. One  of   them,   a dentist,   had   a practical  father,  who taught him how good an  investment good clothes   and     many  friends might  be.    This  doctor  lived  for many years at leading hotels and  al evening mingled socially with  the  guests.   There was never a pleasant-  er man  than  he at these leisure times,  nor  a man  of  better appearance,  although during  the  eaaly  years     he  was constantly in debt to his father,  and   in all this    social life he  never  mentioned his profession or his  work  unless such  personal talk  came  naturally  into   the  conversation.    Each  year he went t0 Europe and dined al  the captain's table,  always in iioma-  culate evening clothes.   Sometimes he  went and returned  by the    same ship  for there was little to gain by stay-  der clump  of trees,    that will screen'ing   abroad.       Everybody  liked him,  us from view.
