BILL NYE DESCRIBES HOW THE DUKE
OF CONNAUGHT WAS TREATED.
What . Be and the Duchess Want and
What the Duke Had to Say for Him
selfIlia Opinion of Our Principal
Copyright by Edar W. Nye.
According to the leat information we
can get bold of, the people of Billtong,
B. C, made a great effort to entertain
the Duke of Oonnaught and wife recently,
and succeeded fairly well considering
that Billtong is & comparatively new
town. The duke said that he was not a
litjle surprised to find that Billtong was
yet in so crude a state while marked
B. C. .
Two days were then given for medita
tion and subsequent mirth.
The duke wore an English made suit
of all wool clothes which fitted him in
a desultory way, and which would not
cost a bob over one and ten. He wore a
Norfolk jacket aud duck gaiters. Fear
ing the cold weather, his feet were en
cased in gunnysacks, tied with rag
carpet warp, but the duchess made him
take them oil for fear his feet would be
trained down too much by that course.
One of his feet already has inflammation
of the liver, and the left lobe of the
other foot is greatly enlarged. He has
large, intellectual heels, which extend
back to about the time of Queen Anne.
He has made several efforts, through the
aid of surgical institutions, to rectify his
feet so as to have the instep on the top
of the foot instead of giving the hollow
of the foot a convex appearance. He has
also spent a good deal of money in his
efforts to precede the calves of his legs,
but all to no purpose. He has also had
Beveral unsuccessful operations on his
, feet for strabismus. He wore an African
explorer's helmet with mosquito netting
on to it; and had a leather field glass at
tached to his person by means of a strap.
Once he lost the cork out of his field
glass while at Victoria, and had to get it
refilled at a measly public house.
The duchess wore a barege dress, with
duchess tatting at the wrists and throat,
The panels were held in place by basting
threads of a contrasting shade, and the
revers were draped over illusion and
looped back with passementerie. Over
all this she wore a Mackintosh and car
ried a dinner pail in one hand. She wore
a fore and aft checked steamer hat and a
The duke has been 1 raveling so much
that he is looking somewhat mussed np
and degage. In conversation with a
newspaper man of Port Townsend he
said that he had been eating railroad
victuals so much that he feared his liver
was affected, and that possibly he had
Don on his stomach.
The duke is a fine conversationist.
NYE SEES THE DCKE.
; The duchess brought her work with
her, and will stay in Billtong some
time, they say. She sings some, and
since her arrival has made the perspira
tion stand out on the brow of the hotel
piano in a way which has alarmed the
proprietor a good deal. Her grace sings
the ballad "Sing, Sweet Bird," with
much skill, hopping into the high notes
with great precision and a flushed face.
Her grace also sings and plays the bal
lad entitled "O, bury me not in the
deep, deep sea." It ia quite a sad song,
and quite a number of gents who heard
her at the hotel went down to the bar to
wipe their overcharged orbs on the row
of towels which hang from the edge of
tha nonnter; also to enlarge their over
charged floating debt at the same time.
The duke take this trip in order to
get much needed rest prior to going
back and at once beginning the arduous
task of being Duke of Coanaught and
Strathearn; also Earl of S11s.se x after
noons and Duke of Saxony and Prince of
Saxe-Cobourg and Ootha Tuesdays and
1 On arrival at the pier seven lads,
ranging from six to seventeen years of
age, who had been bathing at the time,
and had not had time even to put back
the cotton in their ears, on hearing the
t -.iproach came forward in full dress
to welcome the duke and give him the
freedom of the town. They then vocally
requested God to save the queen, unless
otllcr arrangements had been made, and
afterward resumed their bathing.
The military guard of honor, wearing
brief but highly inflamed coats, now
presented arms, and the mayor read a
short address of welcome, while the duke
was looking after his luggage. He does
not fancy being entertained by the
provinces, and says he wishes they would
let np on it.
In conversation with a reporter he
said: "At Bungola, Canada, a petty offi
cial whose name at this moment escapes
me asked the duchess and myself to
dine at his house. He said it would be
Tery quiet no one else there, you know,
and all that. I told him I was tired and
so was duch; but no, nothing would do
but I must just drop in quietly and eat
a little dinner with them. It would
only take a few minutes and they would
never forget it. When we got there the
kraal was full ollunkheads that had
been asked in to see the show, and a
coarse tradesman with whiskers in his
era was holding a photograph album
cn his knees as if it was a new born
- child. He was a great coarse man, with
open face and pores. lie was an under
taker, and gave me his card. It seems
that ice is very high where he lives. His
card I still have with mo. It reads as
UNDERTAKE.. EMBALM Eft AND
DEALER IN ICE AT BOTTOM PHtCES.
"tlVt AM) LIT LWt S fir MOTTO'
ft&KlN 'CI SOSSAariy Ane HlOOUXr A VIClAiTT,
"We had to wait an hour for a guest
who was a member of 'parliament from
np in the woods somewhere. He had
been delayed because he couldn't get his
milking done on time, as a bright little
red heifer had presented him with an
other proof of her affection. So he had
to stop awhile and see that mother and
child were comfortable.
"Just as we sat down one of the host's
children fell into the ice cream, and got
quite, chilled before Jhe relief expedition
could get there. On my right Thai a
freshman I think he was a freshman.
Anyway, he asked methejriceof every
thing I wore, but did not know that 1
Henry M. Stanley was the first man to
put salt on the tail of the equator and
forcibly rescue Emin Bey.
"We had cracked wheat with con
densed milk, pap, pemmican, fried mush,
hot house applesdried in a hot house,
I mean kippered herring, skippered
cheese, lemon squash, pie plant pie,
prune sauce with umbrella sap, slum
gullion and speeches.
"At a late hour I went home, and tak
ing a large goblet of smoke tanned Irish
whisky I got my valet to kick me into
a comatose condition and dropped into a
"I had to respond to a toast also. I
said: 'Mr. President and gentlemen, 1
am honored by being ta. repository of
your crude victuals to-night, and am
now asked to make a bright Bpeech as a
partial recompense therefor. I did not
wish to come, as I told your honorable
body, for both her royal symmetry and
myself were fatigued, having visited the
jail and other thriving industries of the
place. We had addressed the primary
schools and seen your growing brick
yard, spent an hour at your great cen
tral hello office, visited your principal
job printing eJablishments and spent a
few hours at the round house. So we
were exhausted, and really needed rest
more than we did to mix in t?ie great
vortex of society.
'We came to this country for rest
mostly, and not to be fawned over and
fed, or to sit np late of nights and eat
caraway seed cookies on an empty stom
ach. Of course society has its claims on
us and we will not ignore them; but I
am not a copious speaker, and fear now
that after these few little remarks that
I still owe you something, although I did
not eat any prunes and my cracked
wheat is just as good as ever it was.
" 'In closing, however, let me say that
I have a cigar with me, so that you will
not be out on that, and rather than ex
tend my remarks any further I will
leave my cheese also. The duchess has
not touched her pap, and so if you will
call it square I will now close. "
The duke then took the arm of his
high bred consort and moseyed out of
the room, to nse his own words. "Of
course," says he, "I ought not to expect
too much of the provincial jveople one
finds both in Canada and the United
States but if one is going to entertain
one should have some crude ideas about
entertainment, at least they should be
cordial, even if they have nothing but
macadamized pie and soft shell dough
nuts. "I do not go in for good victuals alone,
far I can rough it very well, but the host
I hate is the one, don't you know, that
asks me to his house because I am a
duke. Such a host has no more idea of
hospitality than a Congo debutante has
of Delsarte. I don't mind a little that is
crude, very crude in fact, if it is a wel
come, but if it's just a hippodrome, with
duke in the middle and ginger ale on the
side, I ask to be excused.
"There are too many such folks, not
only in the western hemisphere, but jn
England also. Look at the way Stanley
is paying for his provender. He already
wishes he was back in the deepest jungle
of Africa, with a jug of spoopju and the
silence of the forest. He says that Af
rica is at times socially dull, but he don't
have to sit up like a spitz dog and speak
before he can get his cookie. He says
that some of the receptions on the Dark
Continent are extremely informal, and
that a few bonmots addressed to the
principal wives of the host, a compli
ment perhaps to the hostess on the beauty
of her surcingle, then a good-by at the
door to the daughter as he pulls with her
the wishbone of a missionary, then out
into the tropical night, and the exercises
"It seems odd to him, I judge, to re
turn and be made much of by a great
many people who desire only to get to
the front, as you say, by barking be
tween bis roars. Meantime Hank's
victuals don't agree with him, and it
keeps him all het np trying to think of
new pieces to speak. The papers print
what he says, and other explorers keep a
scrap book and compare notes, and real
ly there's nothingn it, don't you know.
"People with titles and people of prom
inence are often good at heart, but silly
and selfish people, with oily words and
each his little ax to grind, have ground
and bore on and rode on these folks till
they go about concealing their real sen
timents from all but their wives, and
wishing they could get among a troupe
of well fed cannibals for a few months
just for a change.
The duke was greaSy pleased with
the general growth of America, and
spoke especially of New York, Boston,
Philadelphia, Chicago and San Francis
co, of which cities he seemed to have
quite a general idea.
"New York," said he, "has arrived at
that very advanced stage of develop
ment when she criticises herself so se
verely that she doesn't leave anything
else for her enemies to say. She is a su-
Srior city with an inferior government,
le bare mention of politics makes her
best citisjos fairly gag, and the men who
write the best articles on the importance
of a wise ballot themselves forget to
vote. rew York is full of hogs who will
partially disappear, with more room on
the streets aud better and more rapid
"Boston is unruffled, quite English,
eats good victuals, takes plenty of time
to do it, drinks good rum first buying
a biscuit to eat with it, don't you know,
and afterward turning it in and getting
credit for it on the drink, bo that an
other man can use it later on. Boston
is a good place to live in, and an English
man does not feel quite so put about and
hustled and knocked down and dragged
out, you see, as he does in New York.
"Philadelphia is like the gentle odor of
tansy and dill on a quiet Sabbath morn
ing. She is so demure, and so touchful
and so prim that she reminds me of a
sweet young widow I once took on a
straw ride when I was a young man.
She had lost her husband by death only
a few months before. He had been sitting
in a third story window, as it was in the
prime of summer time, and doing a lit
tle cbiropodizing on his own hook, when
he lost his balance and fell ta the pave
ment below, where he and his corn per
ished together. She had his features
gathered np and sadly laid away, to be
more carefully rearranged on the Resur
rection day by more competent hands.
On the straw ride I was at first afraid to
converse with her on current topics for
fear of touching her great grief, but ere
we got home she had milked a strange
cow, smoked a cigar, stolen eight water
melons and put a split stick on the tail
of the bull dog that was left to guard the
"Chicago is a great town, and has so ar
ranged it that you can't honorably cross
the continent without stopping in to see
her. She does not need anybody's sym
pathy in the World's fair matter, and
hasn't asked for it yet. The hotels in
Chicago, however, as a general rule need
airing. Most of them bought their fur
niture during the war, and should buy
some more now. They will have to im
prove greatly before TO or visitors to the
fair will makej3hort stops. A great
many of the English, Cnermansand
French have money invest d in Chicago
and railroads centering there. . "They
will come in '92 to see their property.
"San Francisco is the American Borne
of ancient times, the Ame ican Paris of
the present time, and soi ae say looks
like the American Jerusalem of olden
times. She is what Alf. Tennyson would
call a corker. She lives well, dresses
well and makes money inci lentally. She
essentially lives up to the motto of that
celebrated neighbor of yo irson Staten
Island who owns a picnio grove, at the
entrance of which stands the crisp re
mark: . CNJOY LIFE WHILE Ylio Live.

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by consiitutit nal remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con

ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling soun 1 or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
bearing will be destroyed forever. Nine
