B<>b Burdette C’oiutECTs a General
Mistake of Travelers.
If there is one passage in the U-:fe’s ol
American travelers in Europe more lire*
than another it is this: ‘‘During our
six weeks 1 stop in Paris we did not see a
single drunken person, 11 Then they travel
through Switzerland, Germany, Ansfiin,
Italy and Spain, and all France, and still
they do not see a single drunken person.
They attribute the sobriety of the people
to the fact that everybody drinks wine
nud beer, drinks it all the time, and lots
of it, with no high license and prohibition
nonsense to bother them; consequently
they never get drunk.
Well, now, the only inference one can
draw from these remarkable letters Is either
that the writers were themselves blind
drunk all the time «b°y were in Palis, or
that the Parisian drunkard is n most suc
cessful bider. Because, while our travell
ers last year did not sec one instance of
drunkenness in Puns the official police re
cords state that the police of Paris saw
and arrested, on an average, 150 people
every clay, between lannnry 1 and April
30 for being drunk on the streets.
6o many drunkards are not arrested in
New York, and y«l these travelers of ours
always contrast the sobriety of Europe
with the excesses of America. It is just
as well to bear in mind 'ho official report
while reading these letters, and, perhaps,
if the writers of the letters drank h-ss and
thought more they would remember that
official return# wi'l not alw-iys agree with
letters written from the guide book.

The pencil an I opri tot trees were not
touched, thou (b, by this unwelcome vis
itor, and gave pi nurse of heavy l>oar
ing. With attentjnu and study the rais
ing of these fru'ts will become one of the
agriniltutal industries «>f these islands,

offers even greater inducements to the
cultivator; the “succes ol the crop be
ing more regular, and driers being les*

The islands lay in the same latitude as
those famous vim yards of southern
Franco where brndeanx and other wines
are made; the nights are no colder, the
st.Miners no hotter, and the winters no
more severe than in that lar-famed wine
region. The great thing nec-ssi ry io wx**
pcriel o coupled with patience and the
tight variety ol vin.; and oa some ol these
mountain slop s hereabouts will some day
be seen vineyards extensive and valuable-
It goes with out saying that the finest va
rit ti sof apples, pears ami plums here
grow, and io the hands of competent grow
ers.iire even now proving the fact that they
are golden. But when a man plants out
a young orchard and raises an exc Rent
timothy and c ovet crop on the same
ho must expact to partially, at au, rate,
ruin his young trees. Hay can bo raised
on the same ground provided the clover
or grass is not idlowed to grow within
throe feet ol the-trees. The best Way to
plant a young orchard is to uiaKe the
vegetable garden in the center nf the
rows formed by the trees, not approaching
them too closely. Mulching is very nec
essary fur the that three or font- years.

There are excellent cranberry swamps,
good farming lands, and plenty of good
grazing lands yet vacant. And there an
many farmers who are willing to sel

Two new families have jnst located on
Orms Island, one in the Crow Valley and
the other near West Sound.
The strawberry crop has been very suc

East Sound, with its favorable b..thing

Lnngui’s ranch, will some day ere long be
come the Newport o( Puget Sound, It is
within easy access for yachters.
The steamers Rustler, with the mail,
the Idaho and Evangel, all call here, and
when the demand arises, better accom
modation can easily be provided. A'
present there can bo no more delightful
trip, for people not in a huny, than to
take the inside route on tiie steamers
Washington, Monroe or Idaho, as far as
Anacortes or Whatcom, and change at one
of the places named above for East Sound.
—Post Intelligencer.
The Province of British Columbia is
being examined thoroughly by h mninjz
and civil engineer lor the purpose of
learning the extent and value ol its ruin'
dais. Fur this purpose the Dominion
and Provincial governments have each
appropriated $2,500. The work is pro»
dressing under the directions of Mr. Amos
Bowman, ot the Dominion Geological
Survey. Mr. Bowman is examining the
various mining districts in Cariboo. The
design is to map out the placer mines
where worked and denote them on a map
with amounts of gold taken out, and also
to locate arid determine the extent and
worth of quartz ledges. The direction
and extent of (he gravel formations will
bo gathered, and every information that
will be of use in mining will bo r loariy
shown in map dorm. Districts that have
been worked will be mainly followed.
The benches ol the Fraser will also he
examined. These weio undoubtedly a
lake country and extended Into the moun
tains to gravel deposits, some ot which
contain gold, while others do not .
Another feature that will be demonstrated
it is tjmueht, is that the rich mineral de
posits which prevail south, also exist in
the districts ot the. Province and north
ward to Alaska. Of course, this will
all have *o he determined, whether ter
tiary, glacial, volcanic or a later period*
and it will be shown when and bow
deposits were placed in Cariboo. The
reports will be printed and given to the
public as quickly as made., and the means
at the disposal of the survey are .such that
this can b© readily done.—-West Shore.'

bread and butter. * He is a poor smith whe
is afraid of his own sharks; there’s some
discomfort in all trades except chimney
sweeping. If sailors give up going to sea
because of the wet; if bakers left off bak
ing bread because it is hard work; if plough
men would not plough because ot cold, and
tailors would not moke our clothes for fea*
of pricking their fingers, what a pass we
would come to. Nonsense, my fine fellow,
there’s no shame about any honest calling ;
don’t be afraid of soiling your hands, there’s
plenty of soap to be had.
All trades are good to good traders. Lu
cifer matches pay well if yon soli enough of
them. You cannot get honey if you are
frightened at bees, nor plant oorn if you
are afraid of getting mud on your boots.
When bars of iron melt under the south
wind; when you can dig the fields with
toothpicks; blow ships along with fans:
manure the crops with lavender water, and
grow plum cases in flower pots, there will
be a fine time for dandies; but until tbs
millennium comes we shall all have a deal
