Czar's Visit in France Creates a
Deep Impression In England.
An English, Fropch and Russian
Agreement Looked Upon
As the Only I'ractlcnbjo MeocV f or Ena
, land ti Escape Uer -mpotenco'ln face '
of the So-CAlled Co'acoriot l!u
rope on tho Eastern Question.
London, Oct io. Tho week's events
in Paris, attendant upon tho reception
of tho czar havo created a deep impres
sion in England, where there is an in
creasing deslro (or an agreement with
Franco and Russia regarding the east
ern question. During his visit tho czar
has personally enhanced his reputation.
Ho says little, but that llttlo is very
Bonslblo. All his speeches have been
delivered with a quiet confidence that
betokens that ho fully appreciates tho
tremendous power ho wields, whilo at
the sumo time his remarks confirm tho
belief that this power will be wielded
for the maintenance of peace.
With regard to an English, French
and Russian agreement, it can bo said
that this is now looked upon as tho
only practicable means foe England to
escape her impotence in face of the so
called concert of Europo on tho east
ern question. In view of this tho suc
cession of growls from Berlin upon tho
Egyptian question, generally taking
tho form of" semi-official hints that
Franco and Russia intend to make
early trouble for England in regard
to Egypt, and that Germany will look
with a benevolent eye upon the pro
cess, is regarded here as merely a .dis
play of spite.
Tho belief is that Franco and Eng
land, with tho assistance of Russia,
are ncaring a rapprochement respect
ing tho Egyptian difficulty, and that
while Franco Is preparing to frankly
recognize the British occupation, sho
will obtain substantial compensation
elsewnfere. It is worth nothing ot
present that the German press is be
ginning to point out, in view of tho im
portance of Germany's colonies and
commercial interests, that tho uncon
ditional neutrality of tho Suez
canal is to her a matter, of
the utmost importance, and that
if tho neutrality of tho canal was guar
anteed by the powers, Germany might
not object to tho sultan's suzerainty
over Egypt passing into othor hands.
Lord Salisbury himself proposed tho
convention of 1SS7. securing the neu
tralization of Egypt, but the present
sultan, after much delay, refused to
sign. As that arrangement would
have loft the suzerainty of tho sultan,
thcro is not tho remotest chanco of

Mr. Thomas Wemyss Reed, editor 61
tho Speaker, tho liberal' organ, says
in an articlo.ln the paper that tho posi
tion of liberalism is graver now than
it has been in a generation. Ho extols
Lord Rosebcry's honorable conduct,
and concludes by declaring that Sir
Wm. Vernon Harcourt's chances of
leading a united liberal party aro abso
lutely nil, adding that somo startling
displays of antipathy f6r him havo
already come from unexpected quar
ters. There is a possibility that the
National Liberal club, which has been
tho headquarters of progressiva poli
ticians hero for ten years, may bo
without a home. Tho club was started
as a company bSfore tho liberal split
and many of the largest shareholders
are now liberal unionists, includ
ing tho duke of Westminster, Lord
James, of Hereford, and Mr. Chamber
lain. After this lapso of years, it
seems that somo of these gentlemen
refuse to continuo to Invest money in
o, cause of which they entirely disap
prove. Besides they havo found their
strongest denouncers in tho members
of this club. The liberals are in a ma
jority on tho directorate, of which Mr.
Herbert Gladstone is a member.

From Entlng Cooked Castor llcani.

supper, he gathered a quantity and
took them homo to his wife. As he
had moro than enough for his family,
consisting of himself, wife and a seven-year-old
6on, he gave half to a Mrs.
Cook, a neighbor. At supper Mrs.
Cook and her son, aged 13, and daugh
ter, aged 14, and tho Leonards par
took freely of the beans, which made a
delicious dish when cooked.
An hour later they were scl.ed with
horrible pains and Dr. John Halton
was sent for. The physician worked
with the unfortunates all night and in
the morning pronounecd them out of
danger, whilo admitting that it was
almost a miracle that all had survived.
The castor oil bean is a largo plant
frequently seen in gardens and on
lawns. Jt is very poisonous and Is use
