The subject t^f  Mr*.

This  Hives him occasion lo level a charge of  favoritism against Chief Bain hy say-,  ing "the matter was 'not Loo petty  when it was my case, but when Messrs.

SWEAT SHOP SLAVERY.  Low Wages the Source   of Increasing,  Immorality.  Low wages is (ho source of   Lhe largest .-hare of iniriioralil y.     It is so easy  to talk platitudes when   you've  had  a  good    dinner    and     sit     comfortably  clothed and wai m in your  snuir   room.  Hut think of youth and fresh girlhood,  fading day after- day in   the   dim , precincts of fa dory and sweatshop; think  of every   hope   slowly   dyin-jr,   of the  want and despair and  pinching  out of  all the meagre' gray days.   -And  side  hy side   with   this   tou-ibk-.   existence  place   the    temptations    tint   always  come to poor youth and poor girlhood.*  How ninny   of us   who   sue  bel.lei off  would keep to'the straight iind narrow  path wore,we iu a like  case,   while the  broad highway on which lie  the pleasures and luxuiiosof life shines so near.

T shall he glad if you Mill kindly give  facility to your readers I'm ' the enclosed information.  The College, Calgary, which was'  founded ,on April loth, 1893, hy the  Key. William Eugene Pen in, of St.  John's college, Cimhi idge, commences  the 2nd ter.n of its lifth year on September LSth. Eoundi cl during a time  of liiiiinciiil depression, the college has  steadily hold its own and proved its  need, and the solid work' it has lur-ned  out and the ������nccess it has hitherto1  gained will be continued in the I.it ure.  The collog ��������� list of visiters, comprises  many wed known citizens, which  speak- well for the character of the  institutio i. The college is conducted  as a high class .school. The pupils aie  thoroughly prepaiod for the universities, rnil.lary or naval .services, the  law, medical iind lonmiercial examinations.    The oliject at which   itaiins'is  Persistent Law Breaking.  As wc go to press   we   have   information that Chinamen are  again   working in the Dunsinuir   mine   al   Extension.      It     is,   hut   a   few   days   since  Assistant     Attorney-General   .McLein  went to Extension   upon   in foi maiion  laid hy   Mine  Inspector   -Morgan,   and  turned the Chinamen out.      The .management     allowed     their    Mongolian  scabs to go without  resistance.     They  knew they wore breaking  the l.i'w'and  wished   to ��������� avoid   trouble.       BuL   no  sooner was the assistant  altorney-gen-  '���������'oral oyt'of the way  than they sent the  Asiatics underground again.    The.lime  has   come,   it   appears,     to   iind   out  whether  the   Diinsmuirs   do   actually  own   this   country   or   'not.    Who aie  they? or what slanding do they have in  this,province that.Ihey presume  to sol  themselves above the law?   , It   it-   indeed amazing; for sheer* effrontery and  disregard of law this action stands unequalled.1'    Such   criniinalily    on   the  part of ,<i \yorkiiigmau   would   be  punished   with   severest    penalties;     but  when Ihe criminals are the Duiisiiiuiis,  what?   There is only one. way  to ileal  with such   deliberate   attempts   to set  the law at deliance, and  lhat i.s lo take  prompt iiclion to   bring   the   olienders  to     justice.      We     demand,    in     the  name     of     all    white      underground  ���������workers, and iii the name, of   the out  raged law of the  province,   that   those  men    who   are   so   determined , to i un  counter to that law, be piinisned  without delay.      They,   should   not lie per -  milted merely to withdraw   their pestilent hlacklegs,   as   they   did   ihe-ia.st  time, hiit   they   should    be 'lateen into  court   and   publicly    branded   as'the  shameless sweaters and public enemies'  that they are.      Here   is   a.chance'for  Attorney-General Henderson   to  show  that he is^vorlhy   of   die trust  which  has .been   placed .in    him.

KirgiM-,  Dr. Sol- ,  Jicr and De Y.-irigny, have collected niiilc-  ri.-il that could be reached upon this point  ,'   and published it in a pamphlet issued in  1 "iii-is.     Naturally   the   material   is   but  ,  scant,, but  nevertheless furnishes 5j.11 in-  , teiTStin;,' contribution to the great issue���������,  the moment of death.  The I'Ycncl) piihlicntimi gives a number  ' of .stateiiK'iils by  intelligent iind  ob^erv-  ',", ing pei sous who were rescued from death  at  the last   moment.    These siatemeiits  lire coui'incd, to aceidt nts and do not refer  to exhaustion i*esullin*,r from old age. but  ���������   even in,the case of lhe latter the experts  claim to,bo jUMilietl in the assertion (hat  where lhe power of life gradually fades  " away denthjjs no more painful  than in  'the'case of jicojile who in tlie fullness of  vitality, confront the great destroyer.  A 1111111 her of the instances cited in the  ��������� publication  are  connected .wilh   the e'x-  -^pcriences of lion hunters in Algiers, who  Imve been actually within' the grasp of  the claws and the terrible teeth of the  ting of nriitu-ils.  'Similar experiences nre related by per-'  boiis .who were in imminent danger of  drowning,  One of lheni', a physician liim-  ' self, tells how,his'biint capsized in a ru-h-  ing stream and how he. after heroic but  fruitless.efforts to  save hinistjlf.   redou-  ' bled by the knowledge that he \v;is nipitl-  ly carried'"toward a' roaring cataract,  drifted unresistingly in a smt of peaceful semiconsciousness until rescue crime.  In rall these instances, where accident  brought poople,M)f welt, balanced mind  suddenly face to face with death, (here is  the olio consensus oi' thought that before'  the mind's eye of such" people nil (lie important events of their life, almost their  entire life, sp to say. passes"iu a moment. ,  This is in accordance "ith life in .1  dream, where a single iiist*iiit,'su!lic*i*s to,  comprise an almost endless chain of  cvents.r  ' . Professor Heine of the Zurich university,   an   indefnligiibli!   mountain ���������climber,  ' hfld llio experience of 11 fall into a steep  abyss. lie was rescued by what seemed  to bo a miracle, and ho imniediati'ly sot  to work to gather the experiences of others who hah been in the same position.  'They- all agreed.  "What lct'elt in the few seconds of my  full," says Professor Heine, -'wouldtiike  .hours to vol ate. .All Uionghts and mind  pictures were of a marvelo*:s distinctness  and clearness. A long train of means'to  break the tremendous rush of (he fall  occurred to.mo first, and next there jiass-  ed before,my mind all the events of my  life, realistic .is in n-Uinelnscopc,"  Whympcr. nn Kngiish Alpine tourist cof  renown, fell from a" Height of'over 200  feet. "I was perfectly .conscious of what  happened to inc." he states, '-and I counted every jolt I got from protruding cliffs.  . but, like a chloroformed patient, I felt no  pnin. Each rimentetl jolt of' course was'  greater than trie pieced ing ono, nnd I remember quite- weil how I calculated that  if the next'jolt should bo still more severe the end would come.. Hut the most  wonderful experience was .that in 'this  tremendous rush through space the air  pressure, which 'must ..nve boon terrible,  was not nt nil,disagreeable.'  Admir.il Beaufort of the British navy  relates what he felt when he 'once fell  overboard. "From (he moment my efforts   to  save  myself  ceased."  lie  said.  ."the nwful thought of death |>.*issod away  like magic nnd gave'pi,-ice to perfect rest.  This was apathy, pit re mul simple, run!'  ��������� not resignation, ,for it never occurred to  m'c that drowning was a inisfui time. 1  did not think of rescue, and yet I did not  ' suffer.' ,On thc contrary, my sensations  were rather plcnsant."  Darwin, who as a competent observer  has few peers if any, 1 elates that he once  fell from a garden wall only seven of  eight feet Inrrh. and be says that n reproduction of the thoughts which passed his  mind in , (he brief moment of the , fall  would fill a volume.  If these phenomena of pnnorninic views  of past life are closer, examined, (ho  French scientists say., the conclusion is  irresistible that the visions are limited tn  n few scenes which are Inter on enlarged  by tlio imagination. Childien,.whose life  comprises less numerous a n't! clearer cle-  , merits., never bare these reniini-cences.  Almost-invariably theii only tlimiglit is  that-thoy will not see their parents again.  Dr. Sollicr repiuts the case of" n confirmed opium cater, a gill of unusual  brightness in her sober moments. He  treated hor after the method which cuts  off (he use of thc drug at once ami which  involves repeated stages of unconsciousness of the outer world. After each return to hor senses tho. patient, who was  firmly convinced lhat. she must die, stated  that her sensations were not only free  from-pain, hut positively beautiful.  Usually the death strii'.'gle is pnin less.  Tlie dying complain rnrely. Kveti if  consciousness npjie.-rrs to be clear, tho dying nre in the past rather than in the  present, 'and the jier-fect rest which is  often taken ns a product of a strong will  power is in reality a sign of absolute insensibility.

POULTRY POINTERS.  A full" grown goose picked regularly  will yield a pound of feathers.  One,way of making poultry pay is always to have something to sell. ,   ,  , Chickens fill ten  fnster on cooked  food  than   on   raw,   because   it   is   easier   digested.  Though turkeys arc good forager's, it  will not pay to let 'them go without  proper feeding daily.  Paralysis in  chickens is due0 to over-r  feeding nnd  lack'of exercise.  'Give less  food  nnd  make the fowls'���������scratch  for a  part of their living.       , '  It i.s rnrely .the enso' that it is advisable  to stimulate eirg production by the use of  'irritating .condiments. Plenty of wholesome nutritious' food is what1 is needed.  Tho profits from poultry are often  wasted by "feeding more fowls than  Hhould be kept. When'a lien is not lay-"  ing, she is expensive.
