A corre b p ondent, com munication to this pa Bays per during the f e w past months s o written of much has been said and Western Canada, and the new provinces forming It, he has been led to give the subject some Inquiry, and he has been shown letters written to the Canadian jçovernment from delegates sent out by friends to inspect the country. One of these delegates who was sent to Western Canada says: "In under taking to give a description I fear I shall not be able to give It justice, for 1 hardly know where to begin or when to end. For a plea for my judgment, 1 will assume, for an Illustration, the experience of a man who went from place to place in search of a wife, and finding so many of good Qualities and attractions, was unable to determine which to choose, so in looking for a home In Western Canada I like the country well, and two of my boys are going this fall (they have since gone, and each has a homestead), where I am satisfied they will do well. The lands which I have seen are far supe vlor In every respect and beyond my expectations. Lakes and streams to be found in all districts abound with innu merable kinds of water fowl, while fish are very abundant. On all sides we see innumerable stacks of grain, proving beyond doubt the fertility of the soil. On either side of the track can be seen In addition to the grain herds of cattle, horses and flocks of sheep. I have traveled over a great portion of the Western states and I have seen nothing to compare with this country. One hundred and sixty acres of land are given free to actual settlers, and I saw cases where as high as $20 per acre had been cleared In one year. I do not wish to advise anyone, but as for myself I shall leave as soon as I can arrange my affairs." The agents of the Canadian Government are now at work organi zing excursion parties, and the Depart ment of the Interior at Ottawa, Canada, will be pleased to supply the informa tion to those who are not within reach of an agent.

No class of people i§ 80 liable to throat trouble as the great class who make up the Gospel ministry. The strain put upon the vocal organs by constant exercise; the •uddeu change from a heated building to the cool air when the vocal organs are in a state of complete relaxation; the fact that a minister feels impelled to use his voice when actors and lecturers would take the needed rest; these are among the reasons why "Clergymen's sore throat" is known as a special disease.

T is one thing to hunt the tiger and quite another thing to have the tiger hunt you. When 'Stripes,' hunting on his own account, pounces upon a man the victim has a poor chance for his life. That there are few men who can tell of such an experience Is need less to say," said Capt. lï. A. Arbuthnot. After the cigars had been lighted a guest who had known him twenty years before in India had pressed him to tell the story of his tiger adventure there and the captain had consented. "The thing occurred In the Dabrah Doolah district In Assam, where I had gone with the idea of becoming a tea planter," continued the captain. "The beginning of the adventure, to tell the story completely, was my meeting a eliikari named Oassa Balhua on the morning of the day when I fell in with the tiger. The word shikari, you will understand, means native hunter, a tiger hunter in particular. 1 was on my way that day to look over a tract of Jungly land which I thought of buying and clearing for cultiva' ion, when on passing Dassa Bulhua's house I saw him sitting in the doorway and he was in a peck of trouble. "His old East Indian company's army musket, the gun with which he hunted, was lying across his lap, and he was fumbling at the lock. He wanted to go out Into the jungle that day, and here was his gun hammer out of gear, so that when he pulled it back it would not catch and stay at full cock. I saw at once what was wrong with the lock, and chancing to have with me a watch maker's file, I set the thing right in five minutes. Balhua was very grate ! ful, and Icode on, leaving him careful ly loading the gun. I don't wish to get ahead of my btory, but will say here that my stopping to help Balhua out of his trouble was the means of saving my own life that day. "This meeting with the shikari oc curred about an hour after daybreak. I went on my way, and by the middle of the afternoon I had seen all I cared to of the tract of land I came to view, and was ready to return to my bunga low. Of the two servants who accom panied me, I had left one with my horse a mile back where there was some shade and grass. The other, who was with me, I sent to the man in the ! rear directing that they bring the horse round by the road to a point where I would meet them. The man started off on a run, and after watching him out of sight, I took my way along a jungle path toward the point on the road where I had appointed to meet them. "The jungle growth through which the path led was made up largely of J m <rw r>. YA m 4~ : •Î' BW *r I ' THE TIGER HAD ME. bamboo grass taller than my head. In terspersed with the grass were clumps of bushes, low-topped korinda trees, and here aucl there a taller tree. Now that I was alone the thought came to me that I should feel more comfortable if I had kept my rifle by me, for it being rather heavy to carry, I had left it with the servant, who had charge of the horse. But I was not much dis turbed by anticipations of danger as I strolled along the path, taking my time, for I expected to have to wait for my men at the roadside. "The thing came suddenly, without warning. There was a strange moving of the grass and hushes a few feet away to one side of the path, the tall grass parted to left and right in the furrow that came straight toward me there was aloud, deep-throated roar—and the tiger had me. I was standing stock still staring at the moving grass, for there •was no use in running away, for he came out on me. There was one glimpse of paws, jaws, and white breast all plunging for me, and then I was flat on my back in the path, with the tiger crouching upon me, his claws set in my left shoulder and right side. The long feelers at his nose brushed my face as he set his teeth into my shoulder in one sharp, crushing bite, apparently to make sure that I would lie still. "If the tiger had been alarmed or wounded, if he had overtaken me run ning away, or had I struggled—I should have been killed outright. I certainly expected nothing else, but the tiger, not repeating the bite, lifted his head as if listening. Some sound in the road may have made him fearful of losing his prey, for, seizing me by the should er, he swung me clear of the ground and started away through the jungle in long, swift leaps. I weighed at that time 135 pounds, and the tiger carried me along as easily as a cat would carry a squirrel. "It will probably sound strange to you, although a similar experience has been related by others, when I say that from the moment the tiger leaped on I me I felt no pain from teeth or claws. Neither did I, after once the brute had seized me, feel any keen sense of fear, although perfectly conscious of all that was going on and of what seemed the certainty that I should be immediate i ly killed. Perhaps the best expression of my condition while I was in the tiger's power would be to say that I was in a hypnotic state, for I can com pare my sensation with nothing else. "The tiger ran perhaps fifty yarös, then stopped, laid me down and crouefced, watching me. Presently he picked me up again and started on through the jungle, this time walking, bearing me along with my legs drag ging upon the ground. Coming to an open space he laid me down, and, back ing away for a distance of two or three yards, lay crouched, watching me in tently, after the manner of a cat that plays with a mouse. "Prom the position in Which t lay Î could look straight Into his yellow eyes and could see the curling In and out of the tip of the supple tail. Then as with every second I expected the tiger to leap upon me and tear me, there crash ed in the jungle's stillness the loud re port of a gun, close at hand. I saw the liger leap to his feet, whirl toward the found, and he roared once as he rear ed himself almost upright on his hind legs; then fell over on his side strug gling. "It was from tile old firelock that. I had set In order that morning—the East Indian company musket of Dassa Balhua that the shot had come which saved my life. The shikari had found the path the tiger was accustomed to take in going from his den to the near est water course to drink. In a thick leaved tree overlooking this path he had built a platform, and from this he had watched dally for a chance to shoot at the brute. Waiting here this day he saw the tiger come into view from an unexpected quarter dragging me along by the shoulder. When he saw the tiger drop me in the open space and lay himself down at a little distance away, the shikari fired at him, aiming at the head, for he knew that if not killed the first act of the brute would be to kill me. The tiger, struck In the ear by the heavy bullet, died almost in his tracks. "After the shot was fired I lay still, not feeling sure that the tiger was real ly done for, until I saw Dassa Balhua come toward me from the tree. When I lifted my head the shikari was startled for he had thought that I was dead. But he came to me and lifted me by the shoulders so that by turn ing my head I could see the tiger lying stretched on his side. " 'He can trouble you no more, sah ib,' said the shikari. 'The tiger Is dead.' "The shikari opened my jacket and examined my wounds, and then went down to the road to intercept my ser vants. By the time he came back with them my wounds were getting painful. While one of the servants rode to the nearest bungalow for men and a litter, I lay watching the shikari skin the tiger. It was a young animal, full grown, with a glossy, beautifully marked skin, and terrible teeth and claws. With the skin and the govern ment bounty and the hundred rupees that I gave him, Dassa Balhua had no reason to complain of his day's fortune. I was taken out of the jungle that night, and to my home the next day. I had a bad shoulder, with fever, that kept me laid up for three or four weeks and I did not regain the full use of my right arm for years. But I think I got oft well." ACCURACY. It Is a Good Tiling bnt Sometimes It Becomes Painful. Accuracy is the most desirable thing on ordinary occasions, but there are times when it palls, says the Wash ington Star. It Is soothing to hear the English language spoken with confidence and unerring grammar, which betoken intelligence and good breeding, and especially so when it is uttered in public places by uniformed persons from whom you ordinarily hear such remarks as "Hi!" "Get a move on yer" and "Can't you look where ye're goin'?" A middle-aged man who had ma.ls his way through the mob of depot em ployes who use this style of vocabu lary was happy to find the conductor on the sleeping car a young man with a gentle voice and a deliberate and re fined manner. He was more than gratified when he saw him, later on the journey, take a copy of one of the Latin classics from his pocket and be gin to read. His pleasure at the spec tacle made him almost forget that in his haste to catch the train he had neg lected to eat any luncheon. Approach ing the conductor, he endeavored to mingle knowledge with agreeable in tercourse. "Have you been on this road long?" he inquired. "No," the conductor answered, without looking up. "This is my first week." 'Do you like the work?" "All labor is distasteful. But I endeavor not to allow my mind to dwell on the irk some phases of my duty." The conductor had not taken his eyes from the book and his questioner abandoned all idea of sociability and proceeded with the matter nearest to tils heart. "Will you tell me," he asked, "when and for how long this train slops for dinner?" "Not at all." "Are you sure of that?" came the in quiry in tones of protesting anguish. "Yes," the gentle voiced conductor re plied, as he leisurely turned a leaf, "I am quite sure. The train does not eat." Artemua Ward's Joke. Artemus Ward was traveling. A man approached him, and said: "Did you hear that last about Horace Greeley?" "Greeley? Greeley?" said Artemus; "Horace Greeley? Who is he?" The man was quiet a few min utes, and then asked: "What do you think about Gen. Grant's chances for the Presidency?" "Grant? Grant? Man," said Artemus, "you appear to know more strangers than any one I ever saw." The man was furious. He walked off, but returned and said: "You ignoramus, did you ever hear of Adam?" Artemus looked up and ask ed: "What was his other name?" Died, Kevlved and Died. It was thought last Tuesday that Mrs. Robert Drew, reputed to be the wealthiest woman in Niagara county, N.

The woman revived and recovered con sciousness. She lived twenty-four hours and then died. First London Directory. The first London directory was print ed in 1670.

From the reign of Bolesias the Great to the crime of 1772 (the partition of Poland), the chivalry of Poland re pelled ninety-one Tartar invasions, any one of which, if successful, would have at least jeopardized the existence of European civilization, says the Amer ican Catholic Review. For many cen turies that chivalry was the sole bar rier of Europe against the triumph of Muscovite ambition, and the reason-of tile Polish success is to be found, not in the unquestionable valor of the Po lish heart, not in any solidity of the government which directed that valor, but in the religious tie which bound the Poles together—the only tie which this restive people have ever regarded as unbreakable. This is the most sal ient fact in all Polish history. The political constitution of Poland was the most faulty in Christendom, prob ably in the world; and precisely be cause of that constitution her history is that of an almost continual civil war —a condition of things which in any other land would have rendered for eign invasion synonymous with nation al ruin. But, so long as the religious tie remained, Poland could have 100, 000 masters in the persons of her frac tious nobles; the entire people could be serfs; and there would be but one law and one country for every Polander. For many centuries the battle hymn of this warlike race was a beautiful canticle in honor of our lady, which had been composed by the martyr St. Adalbert, the first apostle of Northern Poland; and to mention only one of the many customs which show how the Catholic spirit was identified with Po lish patriotism, what a lesson the Po lish boy received when, while assist ing at mass, he noticed that at the reading of the gospel every noble drew his sword half-way out of the scab bard, In sign of his sworn devotion to the faith, even unto death. "POT BOILERS EMERGING.' And Red Wine Coming In at the Doors of tlie Studio. After weeks in the forest of Fon tainebleau it is difficult to realize its monotonous amplitude, its endless rep etition of similar prospects, says the Saturday Review. And yet as a for est it has no surpassing beauty. One may compare it with Dartmoor—Dart moor pared of its highest tors and set thickly with young trees growing close as the moss on a boulder. It is a roll ing upland with a scanty mantle of soil, through the frequent gaps in which the broken gray bowlders of the naked earth sometimes rise in fantas tic heaps, sometimes line concavities a mile across, or fringe the gaping lips of long ravines. Like Dartmoor, the surface is arid, and you may tramp miles and see never a pool; and yet, on every side, you may descend from the forest by green valleys into green plains and find brooks leading mirac ulously from the dusty rocks to dip under fringing willows. It is to these happy skirts of the forest that the painters' villages cling; Barbizon, ad vertised by Stevenson and now aban doned to the cultured tourist; Cernay, with its great village square; Marlotte, smothered under masses of lilacs like a child laughing in new-mown hay; Moret, on the Seine, with its tower flanked, steep-pitched bridge, its mills and ruined castles and spreading river: and a dozen others. The simplest of them turn austere faces to the solemn spaciousness of the forest, but thjir sweet gardens give access to the green comforts of the plain; an image, may be, of the artists themselves; high, un profitable aims in the salon; pot boilers emerging and red wine coming in by the studio doors.

The subject of this sketch is flfty-slx years of age, and actively engaged in farming. When seventeen years old he hurt his shoulder and a few years after, commenced to have rheumatic pains in it. On taking a Blight cold or the least strain, sometimes without any apparent cause whatever, the trouble would start and he would suiter the most excruciating pains. He suffered for over thirty years, and the last decade has suffered so much that he was unable to do any work. To this the frequent occurrences of dizzy spells were added, making him almost a helpless in valid. m y/, 'y In All Sorts of Weather. He tried the best physicians but without Aelng benefitted ana he used several specific rheumatic cures, but was not helped. About one year and six months ago he read in thi6 paper of a cose somewhat similar to his which was cured by Dr. Williams Pink Pills and concluded to try this remedy. After taking the first box he felt some what better, and after using threo boxes, the pains entirely disappeared, the dizzi ness left him, and he has now for over a year been entirely free from all his former trouble and enjoys better health than he has had since his boyhood. He is loud In his praises of Dr. AVilliams' Pink Pills for Pale People and will gladly corroborate the above statements. His post office address is Lorenzo Neeley, Horton, Jackson County, Michigan.
