Agricultural prospects are the best in many  years, and farmers are jubilant.  Ranching is much stimulated      by  thc sudden advance in cattle to four  cents  for export.

He isrno longer the exhuberant young  man who made the buildings in  which he spoke ring with laughter.  His nights and days of prayer and  introspection have aged him greatly  and changed his brightness into  something approaching ascetisism,  and his addresses are ndw" marked  by strange outbursts of feverish excitement.   One of the most extraor-  Nl  in Seattle revealed the fact that allj 1in.ar?. ������n_c������de.nts,o-������-_is-mission" oc-  the     Chinamen  here are his  "cousins."     The term simply means    his  *m' friends.  '1-  "\      Yuen's funeral   will   be  held  some  \-?  time this week,  and  will be one of  "V  W  ������> the largest ever held  in Seattle.   It  \y has been more than a year since     a  r^f   Chinaman was  buried  here with full  |;'   honors of the Chinese Masonic lodge.  The     place from where the funeral  will  be held has not i been selected,  but it is probable that the principal  part of the ceremonies will be held  f in   the.'street near  the Chinese joss  * house o.T'Main street.  '     The'preparation pf the ,body of the  .Chinaman for burial  is one of       the  jjfc most important   features of the fun-  f eral service.   A message .to some im-  l& mortal  is written on  parchment and  'M.placed in the shoe of the dead  man..  X/Money is also put into thc coffin to  | pay his way across  to the      other  i world. The body is clad in the  .jcostliesl of raiment. Money is not  ^spared in the preparation of thc re-  ['mains.  j'j"   The ceremonies  of the funeral ser-  l vice  resemble" somewhat an old-fash-  Mohed  wake.   Every kind of Chinese  indelicacy is cooked.  A  pig is roasted  j*-! whole and is taken to the grave with  Jfthc   casket.    Following   the  funeral  ^procession is a wagon load of small  l^bits of,/*papcr.   Each bit of paper is  i'/torn ^in the centre, aud.it is the :be-  |?jjjlief of    the Chinaman  that  the evil  inspirit -has to  pass   through  each  of  |y'Uie holes before it can ovcrta-kc   the  Mi'eatl  man.   The  bits  are strewn  on  jv'i.he ground as  thc funeral procession  Impasses along.     There will be Chinese  f'hiiisic  in  plenty at  the funeral,  for  [v'uiise,  the Chinese, believe, will scare  lliway  the devil.  <*���������  BANK  NOTES  SHOW UP.  fa, OST  Ifjf Eighty-four years ago there -was/  Considerable agitation as to the advisability of the Bank of England issuing a .������1 note, mid the directors  )')ad four specimens printed.  $ But they were never issued, and  [trt'ero put away in the archives of  '���������he bank. Very ,soon afterwards two  of thc four notes mysteriously disap  teired. Every effort was made to  /race them, but in vain.  S A few days ago, however, says a  v^spalch from London, the two notes  ,'^-ere brought to jtbe Daily Mirror of-  jc^ce. The slory of their discovery af-  fcv the lapse of eighty-four years is  M interesting one. A man offered  Hem ��������� for sale at Mr. O'Hara's curio  "top in Euston Road, and the curio  ^aler, having bought them for 12s.  i'v. apiece, sent, his assistant to pre.  ���������!Jit them u( the bank.  |*i;The cashier stared at  them iu  nazc-rnent, exclaiming,   "They're not  circulation."    One  of   the  governs   examined  them  and   recognizer!  taem ,as the Long-lost notes. The authorities  wished  to  keep  them,    but  lit-.   O'Hara would, not    submit  to  curred- this week at    Blaenanerch in  Carmarthenshire which place he suddenly     and unexpectedly decided   to  visit after resting for a period at his  home    at  Lo.glior.        At the    commencement of the service he accused  a youth  iu the gallery of mock   cry,  and then broke do*wn in agonized sobbing.   Three boys thereupon rose ana  "con fossil rt"  bitv the musdoneiv   declared that the mocker was not   one  of the three.    Later another strange  incident occurred.    "The  missioner's  soul,"  to quote an observer, "seemed steeped     in agony,"  because    he  said a man in the chapel  was   deny  ing the     Divine inspiration of     the  Bible.     Nobody rose to confess, and  after an interval of the greatest tension Mr. Roberts     leaped up sayinb,  "God has revealed the name and  the  age of the man.    He is twenty-three.  Oh,  Lord  forgive.'"   A  few   minutes  later,  the evangelist smiled joyfully,  for,   he said,   the man had     changed  his views and there was no need  for  him      to confess  publicly.     Mr.   Roberts, after speaking briefly  .against  the sin scepticism, startled nis hearers     by declaring that there was    a  man present who had committed   sacrilege.   This created a   painful sensation, which was brought to an end  hy the missioner saying that the man  ���������mist  make three-fold  restitution  and  confess     to his   church.       Later he  threw out a challenge to     one   who,  he said,  doubted  the  revelation     of  God  in the Scriptures.     If  the scriptures were false, then might he,  (the  missioner) be removed; if true,   then  might     the doubter    suffer removal.  Nothing of miraculous nature happened,  but  the evangelist,  who  by  this  time had  worked himself up  into     a  state of great excitement,  concluded  a memorial service by predicting terrible  times  which  the people   would  understand a month hence. The   Rev.  Tudor   Jones,   Unitarian   minister   of  Swansea, discussing     the nature    of  Mr. Roberts' recent utterances, in an  interview,   said:  "I cannot find that these fits of  Jlr. Roberts' have taught hiia many  of the virtues found in the gospel. I  think that the supernatural pretensions which the past few weeks have  revealee? will do more harm to religion than any good the revival may  have done."  A strange ...ciclent occurred at St.  Ge'rgeVs Hall ballad concert on Wednesday evening. According to the  programme an entertainer named Mr.  Ash-lyn stood up, and to his audience  Mr. Ashlyn said: "Ladies and gentlemen. I am unable to give my us--  rial entertainment; the fact is I have  recently been converted to God at  the Albeit Hall mission and I feel  that my life must be spent not in  amusing people who arc, many of  them, orr thc road Jbo hell, but in the  service of the Saviour  who  died   for  ceival as any detection would tax  the facilities of the immigration station far be>oad its limit.

The  year* ' company alleged  that he owed $.10,-  000, and started a suit for it. Scott  refused  last night at thc jail to talk  about thc case.    President John Tat-  ler, of     thc  Washington  Life Insurance Company., said at his-home that  the issue     was an involved one and  that it was impossible to  tell     exactly how much Scott owed the company     because there were so many  matters  at issue, and so much confusion.   He declared that Scott's accounts j were much involved.  I    A    despatch     from Portland, Ore.,  ,says:    Blair  T.

It seems   to me  that .woman's excellence  (and  1 have  been  using      the  word  always  in its  proper meaning  to denote superiority)  lies    in three  things:    A  certain   fineness  and  delicacy   of   physical   organization       and  balance;    a certain      line   and   moral  sympathy;      and   a certain   linn   and  gentle , faculty ol sncial  order       and  rule.    I  believe, that  nature gives the  germ and potency of  these things in  her  more fully and   more richly   than  to   man, at   the  beginning of life.  I  believe  that  they are native,and    inherent capacities wherein   the normal  feminine excels  the normal masculine  .But   that  is   not   the   point,   and  so  we may .evade for the present      the  somewhat  fierce and  perilous discussion which'swirls around'if. Whether  these  excellences  are  inherent -or acquired,   I hey  are certainly  desirable.  .They /il and adorn a woman If or the  place and   Ihe  privileges  which     belong to her  in civilized society.   And  the  course  of  life,   the   method       of  training  and   education, which develops  these tilings in a girl is  the way  to womanhood.���������Henry Van Dyke,  in |  Harper's  Bazar.  ^S^S^^sSf^st^^h,  VICTORIA,   B.C.  :;"ss3sssssssssssi'^.^^sa^s^ss.
