THE SUGAR INDUSTRY.
Congress should go slow about
taking off the duties on sugar. The
argument is that tho industry in the
United States cannot hope to com
pete with the product of the Cuban
plantations and the European beet
sugar factories. The latter, parti
cularly, have been exhausting the
resources of seienco and art, under
the protection of Government boun
ties, to compete with cane-sugar.
Russia pay a bounty of about tliiity
dollars a ton on beet-sugur. France
pays f torn $3," to 810 a ton, and
these demands on the treasuries of
those couuliies which show an an
nual deficit nro ctcating opposition.
Tho sugar producers arc warned that
they must begin to look out for them
selves. An international conference
has been proposed to consider the
bounty question with a view of
doing away with tho system. In
that case the competition will be
much reduced. Meantime our
grow cis, who have been struggling
with debt and woiuing with inferior
appliances, are feeling their way
towanl new methods, llio "diffu
sion" process has proved a success
experimentally, and projects are
now afoot for strong syndicates to
erect works at central points in the
cane-growing districts, and cheapen
production by means of improved
mechanical and business methods.
Rich sugar lands are being opened
to cultivation by tho great drainage
enterprises now approaching comple
tion in Florida, and experiments in
California hold out the hope of suc
cessful cultivation of the cane in our
river bottoms. Nor is there any
reason to doubt that with our
superior soil and climate wo can dis
tance Europe in growing sugar-beets,
and, by the application of our in
ventiveness to inipiovo processes,
can make up for the diffnencc in the
price of labor, if proper protection
is afforded the industry. The
Alvarado factory is now turning out
2,500,000 pounds of beet-sugar a
year. In view of these present and
prospective conditions, there is no
reason for gratuitously giving up a
business which promises so well for
the future. S. F. Bulletin.
HOW A STROKE OF LIGHTNING AF
I can pretty truly say 1 was
struck by lightning, aud tiic sensa
tion is a peculiar one. Two years
ago I was standing on a 15-foot
ladder adjusting the lower carbon
of the electric light, when the cur
rent caught inc. I carry a large
scar to this day as a reminder. Hut
then I did not know what happened
me. I was practically dead, as far
as consciousness is concerned, for
nine days, at the end of which time
I awoke iu (ho hospital. Duiing
that time they tell me I had been
violent, but I know absolutely noth
ing of what occurred. When I
awoko I gave a scream. I had
been tied down with live straps, but
I broke tluce of them and flung the
bed against tiie door. After that I
was two months laid up. My
troubles were principally shooting
pains through the loins, sometimes
through the back. I have recovered
and buffered no evil consequences,
except that I am not aide to do day
work, the sun affecting me as it
would one who had lcccivcd a sun
stroke. The company was extremely
kind to me, aud I now make my
rounds at night. I nm very careful,
of course. A Line Repairer iu St.
A CO-OPERATIVE SUCCESS.
One of the most successful coope
rative stores in tho country is that
of the Arlington Cooperative Asso
ciation nt Lawrence, Mass. The
eighth quarterly statement is an ex
hibit that any business niiqht bo
satislled with. The number of mem
bers on October 1, 1880, was 351,
and tho sharo capital paid up was
$-5,755. Tito avorngo capital in use
for the year ending October 1st,
were $45,381.94; tho gross profits
$3,060.51; tho expenses, including
salaries and interests, $4,209.10;
the net proilts, $3,770.32 ; the divi
dend divided among purchasers was
$3,118.40; the amount carried to
Sinking fund, $051. 92; the intcicst
paid on capital at 5 por cent was
192.o7, and the total return on the
average capital employed was 83,
9G2.39, or 103 19-100 per cent.
Tho gross proilts were 17 70-100 per
cent on sales ; the year before they
were 10 2-100 per cent. Tho ex

on sales ; tho year boforo they wcro

Sir Lewis Polly. M. P., presided
at a meeting held at the Milduiay
Park Conservative Club on Nov. 8,
when a lecture was delivered by Mr.
Albert Lucas on "The Federation
of the British Empire is it practic
able?" Tho lecturer stated that in
his opinion tho "federation of de
fence" was impracticable because of
tin ciioi moils cost which would ho
thrown upon Great Miilain iu the
purchase of war vessels ; but a com
mercial federation was not only
possible, but desirable. The chair
man said ho thought that Mr.
Lucas had placed too much stress
on the particular form of federation
the lcaguo desired. What the league
really wished were that tho wills,
views, spirit, and interests of the
foity-cight colonics, and in some
respects our Indian Empire, should
be thoroughly ascertained. They
had no particular prejudice iu re
gard to the manner it should be ob
tained. Let them favour us with
their views, and lie was sure they
would bo caiefully considered. Ills
ow u notion was that for tho time
being the Central Federation League
should remain requiescent. It would
be unwise to let the colonists feel
that we wished to weld them to
gether in any particular form.
They should find out a right con
sensus of opinion, and thereby ar
rive at some method by which they
might, both in respect to finance
and defence, confederate the whole
of tho English-speaking laces, for
they should bear in mind that they
had the time in their favour, aud
truth and the interests of civilization
wcio also with them.

Near tho village of Zuihigilorf, In
Lower Austria, live Maria linns, an In.
tclllgunt ami Industrliiuii woman, whoso
story of physical sullcrhig and tlnalio
lief, mh related by heiNclf, is of Interest
to English women. " I was employcil,"
bIiu snye, " iu the work of a largo latni
houso. Over.woik brought on ulek
hciuliuiiu, followed by a deathly faint
ing and sli.knos of the stomach, until I
was unnblc to roUln either food or
drink. I was eoinpllid to tnko to my
bed for bovcral wuk. Gelling a Utile
better from luH and quiui, I sought i
do komc work, liui was soon taken with
a puln in my Ride, which In a little
while teemed to spread over my whole
body, and throbbed In my cveiy limb.
ThU was followed by a cough and
fthortuc! of breath, until llually I could
not suw, and 1 took to my bed foi the
becoud, and, an 1 thought, for the last
tlmo. My friend told im tliut my time
had nearly come, and that 1 could not
live longer than when thotiees put on
Ihelr green nee more. Then 1 happen
ed to get one of tho bclgel pamphlet".
I read It, and my dear mother bought
me a bottle of fcclgel's Syiup, wliluii I
took exactly nrooiding lo directions,
and I had not taken the whole of it be
fore I felt a gieai chiingu for the better.
My lust illness began June , lt8J, and
continued to August Dili, when 1 begun
to take tho Syrup. Very hoon 1 could
do a little l'ght work. The cough left
me, and I was no more troubled in
h cithlug. Now 1 am perfectly euted.
And oh, bow happy I ami 1 cannot ex
press gratitude enough for Seigol's
Syrup. Now 1 must tHI you that the
docto h iu our district distributed hand
bills cautioning people against the
medicine, telling them it would do them
no good, and many were thereby inllu
diced to destroy tho Sclgel pamphlets;
but now, wherever ono is to bu found, it
is kept like a relic. The fou preserved
are borrowed to read, and tlmu lent
mint lor six miles mound our district.
I'evple have come eighteen miles to get
inu to buy 111 medliiiiic for them, know,
lug thai it cured me, and to bu sure to
get thu light kind. 1 know a woman
who was looking like death, and who
told them there was no help for her,
that she had consulted several doctors,
but uouc could, help her. I told her of
Scigcl's Siup, and wrote the name
down foi her thai she might make no
mistake, blit! took my advice and Mie

and the people around us are amazed.
The medicine bus mule such pioj;rcss

they don't want thu doctor tiny more,
