THE prejudices of -Caucasian
world were shocked the other day by
the announcement that a Chinaman
of Victoria , B. C. , was about to wed
an intelligent and refined young lady ,
with the consent of her parents. The
world will recover from its painful
thrill of disgust when it learns that
the celestial is the possessor of prop
erty to the amount of $2,000,000 , and
overcame the parental objection with
a quarter of a million.

AFTER years of what is called the
"religion of humanity , " the Rev. 0.
B. Frothingham gave up his patched
creed and decided that he had accom
plished nothing. Mr. Underwood is
engaged in much the same business. ,
He is spending a great deal of time .
in making himself generally useless.
A lecture of the sort he delivers ac
complishes no good. It simply un
settles weak people. It is made up of
the old generalities and the old con
tradictions. It is simply the seed of
a spiritual uneasiness. Mr. Under
wood can prove nothing. He can on
ly take the weaknesses of * orthodoxy
and by attacking them , destroy what
peace there is in it for people who do
not care for the refinements of the ig
norance on a great topic which he
gives them. It is not a good business
for any man to be in. Mr. Under
wood is more to be respected than
Ingersoll , because he has more brains
and is not'as coarse. But it is to be
deprecated that he is engaged in his
present business. He should not
strive to tell people what he does not
know himself. He should not use the
tricks of thought to capture the men
who never think. .He should not put
chance sentences into mouths that
have no connection with a brain. "We
can conceive of nothing more horrible
than the lecture of an infidel. Dan
gerous disbelief has an odd fascina
tion for fools , and they go wandering
down "the dim and perilous way , " ,
with no guide of knowledge or rea
son. Infidelity in ignorance results
only in a soggy blasphemy. Most
people are ignorant , and therefore a
man who simply objects , but who has
no remedy , should keep his objections
to himself. He cannot teach intelli
gence , and he can only unsettle ig
norance. The latter ambition is not
a large one. Denver News.
BOB INGERSOLL rehashed his old
lecture once more and delivered it
Friday night at Kansas City , at a net
profit of § 1,000. He has put some
new features into it , and cut out some
of the best portions. As usual his
tribute to what is good fell upon ears
of lead , but flouts , jeers and flings at
religion were greeted with great ap
plause. From what Bob says of mod
ern preachers we guess he has no
personal acquaintance among them.
ONE of the most horrible crimes
ever committed was the. deliberate
murder of Beverly Taylor and wife
and their adopted child , Eliza Jane
Cramer , by two negroes , for the pur
pose of selling their bodies to the
medical college. The murderers have
been arrested , and one of them has
made a full confession. They have
been engaged for several months in
furnishing subjects for the "dissecting
IT was in a Halifax book store recently
that serious-minded asked
cently a - lady
ed a youthful salesman for a copy of
'Eucharistica. " And the young man
responded with a glow of innocent
solicitude on his ingenious face : "We
haven't it , ma'am , but I can give you
Hoyle's games. You'll find it in there"
with the rest of 'em. " Detroit Free
REAM , who made the mod
el for Lincoln's statute at "Washing
ton , has recently modeled a little
baby so perfect that visitors imagine
that they can hear it cry.
