[Our readers will be interested in the following letter, writteu by a little Los Angeles girl, who gives, in a quaint aud naive style, her experiences and observa tions during ber stay iv Montreal.— Editors Herald.] Montreal, Can., February 15, 1887. — I thought, two years i.go, tbat the grand' st sight I bad ever seen wns tbe procession of R< x, iv New Orleans, and I shall never forg"t it. But what I bave seen here in Montreal during the past few duys far surpasses that, al though it whs wholly d.fferent, and you can have no idea from what I wriie of its "spectacular proper lions"—l quote these two last words beciuse I got them from a friend who is kindly helping me write this letter. On the 10 h we visited nil tbe tobog gau slidts, the R'nk, tbe Maze, tbe Roy al Arch, the Camp, and the Ice Palace. The attack on the Ice Palace at night by the Snow-shoe Club was the most ex citing aud mignifio'nt sight I ever saw. Oar room at tbe Windsor—which is the grandest hotel I know of, not excepting the Palace in San Fran cisco—looked out on. Dominion square, which contained 30,000 people. There aro five toboggan slides owned by the Montreal clnb, the Lansdowne, the Park, Jacques Cartier, aud the Fugue Blrue—the latter I bave been made au honorary member and had a pioture taken in my costume. The Maze is made of ice, like everything else, and win n you reach the top you hnd ladies serving tea and coffee. The center of the Ice Palace has a skating rink of real ice, of course, aud there are booths iv which tea and coffe are served. We had a box right near tbat of the Gover nor-General, and ne irly everybody had on skates, and hundreds of splendidly dressed ladies and gentlemen waltzed aud danced the " Lanciers" just as in a ballroom at home, ouly they all did these dances on skates. Another great sight was the procession of sleighs, from four-borse ones down to one-hone ones. Some had three horses abreast, and they have music and In's of fun. Everything is on runners, iron) the street-cars down to the baby carriages. Just think of it! Nurses ou' with babies and tbe thermometer 20" below zero. That was the figure this afternoon, and I wont out sleighing up the St. Lawrence and didn't feel cold, aud I born among the orange groves of Los Angeles—and I'm telling you the truth about the weather. Tbis morning I went tobogganing down the deepest slide nt the "Montreal," but there is no fun in coming here if yon oan'ttake a hand in everything. You feel when coming down tbo slide as if you were being shit out of a oannnn, oi hud dropped from the too of the Wash ingtou Monument, but it's great fun, all tho same. The weather bas been beau liful all the time, except that it snowed ' one day. But I see by the papers that it bns snowed in San Francisco, This is all I have to say. i Gkoroie Truman. P.

S nut law is consid ered necessary to deal with French emissaries, press correspondents and others who.it is claimed, bave been acting as electoral agents, inciting malcontents, freely visiting fortifications, and doing work of spies. The advocates of effect ive Germamxition desire the temporary suspension of electoral rights in Alsace- Lorraine, German education in primary schools, nnd government administration in the place of municipal councils. The Hanoverischer Courier siys: "Alsatians must blame themselves if one result of the eleotious be an application to their provinces of laws of absolute dic titorship. When mads tjto un derstand that another war with France would be tbe complete ruin of tbe provinces, Aleutians will per haps be ready to vote for Germrn can didates," Ou tbe other band the Boersen Courier contends that tbe real conquest of the provinces must be the work of a generation and demands patience.

V., February 28.— Roxabuia Drake, who murdered her hus band, George Druse, in December, 1884. was banged for tbe crime at noon to day. Alter services last evening, Mrs. Druse remained up until about 11:30. Deputy Sheriff Mauion, with Mr. and Mrs. Waterman, were with her. The death watch induced her to lie down, and she slept about four hours of quiet sleep. Sbo awakened with a start, and upon arising begau to write letiers aa calmly as she had at any time during her incarceration. Iv one of these she thanked the Sheriff for his kindness to her, and asked that her body might be given to her sister for Christian burial. After writing she lay down again and fell iuto a doze. She was attacked with hysteria in a violent form, nnd it required considerable effort upon the part of tbe watchers to calm her. During the night she a:e one of the heartiest meals she had e.rten since she was a prisoner. She had about two bouts' rest after 4 a. m., but did not sleep soundly at any t mo. Key. Dr. Powell visited Mrs. Druse about 9, and did all in his power to calm her and pre pare her for the awful moment. The execution was witnessed by twenty-live persons, including the officers. Just before going to tlie scaffold Mrs. Druse made affidavit declarirg tbat her daughter Mary, now cocfiaed iv Onon daga penitentiary, bad nothing whatever to do with the killing of her lather. Yesterday morning Mra. Druse made a confession to Dr. Powell, her spiritual adviser, in which she declared that Charles Gates had instigated her to com mit the murder, and tbat be provided ber wiih the revolver. She declared that after she fired the first shot Gates fired the three succeeding shots from a window. She confessed to having cut up her husband's body. According to ber statement Gates took the fragments away and burned them. She claimed that she killed Druse b cause he"had treated her cruelly aud brutally. At 11:42 Mrs. Druse and Dr. Powell knelt on tbe fioor of the scaffold under the rope. Mrs. Druse held her daugh ter's bonnet in her band, and closed ber eyes while Dr. Powell offered a prayer. The pri-ouer was dressed in a black cashmere dress, with lnoed neck and sleeves. She wore a small shawl over ber shoulders. The woman maintained ber composure on tbe so It'dd until the cap was drawn over her face. Then she began to moan, and finally screamed so , loudly that the noise could be heard in 1 the street adjoining the jail. After the trap was sprung and she had fallen, she made but oue convulsive movement. AMUSEMENTS. What the People May Expect tss the Near Future.
