I am Well pleased with Loe business i have done lev the past year and run More firmly resolved Ilion Ever to keep All classes of goods the i Rade in f if r style Quality amp prices. I never will keep anything but Good honest reliable goods a fishing with children. A Koi St. in tho autumn of 1870, 1 was living in the Interior of Bengal and i wont to spend Christmas with my Friend major Daly. The majors Bungalow was on tho Banks of the Ganges near Cawn Pora to had lived there a Good Many years being chief of the Quarter masters department at that station and had a Groat Many natives elephants Bullock carts and soldiers under his command. On tho morning after my arrival after a cup of Early Tea often taken before Daylight in India sat smoking with my Friend in tho veranda of his Bungalow looking out upon tho windings of the sacred River. And directly i asked the major about his children a boy and a girl whom i had never yet soon and begged to know when i should Seo them. A a soup Ramany has taken them out Lish ing a said their father. A a Why Isnit soup Ramany your great War elephant ? a i cried. A exactly so. You cannot have forgotten soup Ramany a a a of course not. I was Here you know when he had that fight with the elephant who wont mad while loading a transport with bags of Rico Down yonder. 1 saw the mad. Elephant when to suddenly began to fling the Rice into the River. His a a Manhout a tried to Stop him and he killed the Manhout. The Nativo soldiers ran away to hide themselves and tho mad elephant trumpeting charged into this enclosure. Old soup Ramany was Here and so was Jim and Bessy. When to saw the mad elephant he threw himself Between him and the children. The Limilo ones and their nurses had just time to get a to the House when the fight a a ye3,�?� said the major a old soup was a indred years old. He had been trained to War and to fight the Rhinoceros but he was too old to Hunt a a and yer a said i becoming animated by the recollection of that Day a a Whaff a Gallant Light it was. Do you remember How we All stood on this porch and watched it not daring to five a shot lest to should hit old soup Ramany ? a you remember too his look when to Drew off after fighting an hour and a half leaving his adversary dying in the dust and walked straight to the a Corral a shaking his great ears which had been badly torn with his head bruised and a great piece broken from Ono of his tusks i a a a yes indeed a said the major. A a will since then he is More devoted to my dear Little ones than Ever. He takes them out whole Days and i am perfectly Content to have them under his charge. I done to like trusting children to the Caro of natives but with old soup i know they can come to no a a what Trust children under ten years of age to soup without any further Protection 1 a a Lido a replied tho major. A come along with to if you doubt and we will Stirp Riso them at their i followed major Daly and after walking half a mile along the wooded Banks of the River we came upon a Little group. Tho two children Jim the elder being about 10�?both sat still and silent for a wonder each holding a Rod with line Cork Hook and bait anxiously watching the Gay corks Bobbing in the water. Beside them stood old soup with a extremely Largo Bamboo Rod in his trunk with line Hook bait and Cork like the children s. I need not say 1 took Small notice of the children hut turned All my attention to their big companion. I had not watched him Long before he had a bite for As the religion of tho Hindoos forbids Thorn to Lake life the River swarms with fishes. Tho old fellow did not stir his Little eyes watched his line eagerly he was no Novice in the a gentle he was waiting till it was time to draw in his fenian in Arsis. The new York heralds Syracuse correspondent telegraphs As follows colonel Mulligan of Chicago one of the leading officers under general o Neill commander of the fenian forces in the United states arrived in this City to Day for the purpose of organizing and equipping a fenian Force in this City to assist in making a raid on cauda in the event of War Between England and Russia. Colonel Mulligan declares that in the event of a raid on Canada fully 100,000 men Well drilled and armed with Remington rifles could be relied upon to March on Canada on thirty hours notice. To reports that in Buffalo 2,000 men Are armed and equipped and ready for immediate action. In Cleveland Thoro Are 1,500 enrolled and armed and now on duty awaiting orders. In St. Louis and Chicago Largo forces of men Are armed and drilling night and Day awaiting the signal for marching. Should War be declared Between England and Russia the fenian propose to raid Canada in three columns by Way of Ogdensburg Trout River and fort Erie. Tho presence of colonel Mulligan in this City aroused the fenian organization to a pitch of enthusiasm quite unparalleled. Colonel Mulligan proposed to quietly visit the leaders of tho organization for the purpose of ascertaining their condition and giving them information concerning the proposed raid. His presence in Syracuse became known to the masses and fully 150 fenian gathered round him in a Short Timo eager to be enrolled in the army of patriots. They proceeded in a body to the seventh Ward where they were seen and interviewed by our correspondent. They Are enthusiastic and claim that they Are ready to March on Canada at a moments notice. To Morrow the fenian organization of Syracuse meets at the Headquarters for the transaction of important business. The fenian of Syracuse number Over 250 men All of whom Are armed with Breech loaders. In a few Days however they will receive direct from Cleveland a full stand of Remington rifles. The organization has already been quietly drilling and the meeting to be hold to Morrow is for the purpose of securing a suitable Hall for drilling and transacting other important business. It is proposed to open a recruiting office at once. The society claims to Havo plenty of funds and have advices from St Lonis and other Western cities which state that they can have All the Money they want. A prominent citizen of Cleveland has contributed $25.000 towards the Purchase of arms. Col. Mulligan left for Oswego to night. He proposes to visit every Largo City to a certain How Many men can to relied on and How Many Remington rifles will be needed. Farmers Anil the National policy. In telling How the Tariff that John a. Macdonald s soul loves affects the United states Farmers or. Wood made a calculation in the Washington Senate which May Well startle Liliose of our Farmers who Aro in Darter of being entrapped by the tory itinerant. Or. Wood said we give his Renu is the prominence their nature and value entitles them to the Farmer whose whole mind is Bent of his agricultural pursuits has neither the time nor Epport entity to investigate the influence of the Tariff Tux on his household expenses it is a fact however a Bat every article he uses is either directly subject to a Tariff or enhanced by the Tariff. Let us enumerate Josh Billings on Beer. Why he believes it will not intoxicate �?i1is famous peek testing act. I Hay finally cum to the conclusion that lager Beer As a beverage is not intoxicating. I have been told by a German who said he had drunk it All Nite Long just to try the Experiment and was obliged to go Home entirely sober in the morning. I have seen this Man drink eighteen glasses and if he was drunk it was in German and nobody could understand it it is proper enough to state that Titis Mau kept a lager Beer Saloon and could have no object in stating what was not strictly thus. I believe him to tho full extent of my ability. I never drank but three glasses of lager in my life and that made my head unt Wist As tho it had been Hung on the end of a string but i was told that it was owing to my big bile being out of place and i guess that it was to for i never filed Over wus than i did when l got Homo that Nite. My wife Thot that j was going to die and 1 was afraid i for it seemed As tho everything i had Ever oaten in my life was coming to the surface and believe t hat if my wife Hadnot pulled off my boots just As she did they would have come thundering up too. Of How sick i Wiz 14 years ago and i can taste it now. 1 never had so much experience in so Short a time. If any Man shut Tell me that lager Beer these burdens the Farmers House in the was not intoxicating i shut Bel have him we where Lum or is e Caree pays either a it. Of jj0 sj0l,i� Tell me that i Wasny to a direct or enhanced tax of 20 per centum on the lumber his House is built of a tax of 36 per centum on the paint it is painted with of 90 per centum on the nails of 53 acid sell hem at the i West figures. Ordered work prom pay attended to. Repairing neatly done. W. T. A get. Bowmanville feb a 8, 1878. 29. An underground Forest. The authors of the newly published Book a two thousand Miles in Texas on horseback a a tall a wonderful Story about the subterranean forests which they observed on tho Prairies lying near tho River Concho in the Western part of the stale. Riding Over these vast Prairies thus the Story runs though you will see no Trees yet you will often see a tender switch of the Ines nit shooting a few feet above tho ground. Now Stop at one of these and strike at its Root with a pick axe you will expect nothing hut tender fibrous roots but instead of these the pick comes in Contact with a heavy solid body a surprised you remove the thin covering of Earth and you find a living log As thick As a Many a leg extending you know not How far. Exploring further around tho same Little shoot you find Many logs of tho Samo size and an infinite number of branches extending from them. Thus each Little Twig yields you from a Quarter to half a co d of fuel Wood not equalled for that purpose by any other Wood within my knowledge. Thus the treeless Plains Are filled with fuel almost equal in its Supply to the heaviest forests. These shoots do not increase in size but after attaining a certain dimension Loo Small to be dreaded by an uru in they either stand at that or die and give place to others. Tho branches of the Large roots loft in the ground speedily Supply tho loss by other roots As Large As those taken away. A various theories Are put Forward to account for tho oxi3tenoe of these underground forests but none cited by tho narrators of the store Aro satisfactory. It is said by some that the burning heat of the Sun has prevented the growth of Trees above ground. Others urge that the scar Oitt of rain in the Region induced lie phenomenon and again that it is owing to frequency of the Prairie tired which Consumo the vegetation exposed to its wifi cts. But the same influences have nowhere else produced the Sauric remarkable results. Per centum on the screws of 30 per centum on the door locks of from 35 to 40 per centum on the binges of 35 per centum on the Wall paper of from 00 to 70 per centum on his carpet of 40 per centum on his crockery of 38 per centum on his Iron hollow Ware of 35 per centum on the Linen he uses in his household of 51 per centum on the common Castile soap he uses of 40 per centum on the when he goes into his stable barn or workshop he will find that he pays 35 per centum on the Iron he uses 03 per centum on the Halter chains 45 per centum on the files and rasps he May use 47 per centum on the buc saws 49 per centum on Cross Cut saw 38 per centum on the Handsaw and 35 per centum on any Sheet Iron he May use. On his medicines to pays 20 per centum on quinine pills he swallows 50 per centum on Blue Pill 40 per centum and 40 per centum on any medicinal preparations. The female portion of his House cannot even go into hysteria without paying tax of 20 per centum on As Safee Tida required to quiet their excited nerves. On his sugar ii pays a tax of at least 60 per centum. As for the clothing 1 0 and his family uses let to a numb Ralo the tax separately. On his Wool hat he pays from 60 to 80 per centum on his fur hat from 45 to 60 per centum on his suit of Woolen clothes some 55 per centum on the leather for Bis boots and shoes 25 per centum on his hosiery 35 per centum on ins wife a and daughters common Alpaca dress he pays 65 to 70 per centum and on Needles 35 per this is a wholesome looking list of Burden but sir John and his agent or. Fraser Call upon the banners of Canada to submit to it in the interest of the tory party. But it is contended of course that by a duly on grains this is duly recouped to him. That is that the Money taken out of Bis pocket by this process is to to recouped to him by a like amount of Money being taken out of other Peoples pockets under the National policy and put into his. Evon if this were tho Case it would be simply a hocus pocus Gaino by drunk that , but that Ray stomach was out of order i shut ask him to state Over in a few words just How a Man Felt and acted when he was set up. If i warn to drunk that Nite i had some of the most natural Sim tums that a Man Ever had and kept sober. In the first place it is about eighty rods from where i drank the lager Beer to i House and i was jest Over two hours on the Road and a Hole busted through each one of i Pantaloon need and i did no to have any hat and tried to open the door by the Bell poll and hic used awfully and saw everything in the room trying to get around on the Back Side of me and sitting Down on a chair i did not. Wait Long enough for it to get exactly under to when i Wiz going round and i sat Down a Little to soon and missed the chair about twelve inches and i get up soon enough to take the next one that Camo along and that ainu to awl i wife sed i Wiz drunk As a beast and As i sed before i began to spin up things freely. If lager Beer is not intoxicating it used me almighty mean that t know. Still i hardly think that lager Beer is intoxicating fur i have been told so and 1 am probably tho Only Man living who Ever drunk any when his liver was not plumb. 1 done to want to say anything against a harmless Temperance beverage but if i Ever do drink any More it will he with i hands tied behind and i Mouth pried open. I done to think lager Beer is intoxicating but if i remember rite i think it tasted to me like a Glass of soap suds that a Pickle had been put Tew soak in. The Haidest agricultural work on a farm a raising the mortgage. Calcutta India has a new methodist Church which seats two thousand people. Moke than 50 per copt. Of the population of great Britain Are dependent upon foreign food. Man lives not in the present but in the future. At 7 . To looks for noon at 1 . He begins to sigh for 6 of clock. Which under a exp Eusivo system of Tariff. Jln �x0l lot t,1 it Southern negroes to legislation the Farmer would lose Money i i a oru Manceo. The ship Azor Ney on the i a hand Ai d regain it in the other. But tho very cry that the tories Are raising for what they tall agricultural Protection shows that this is not the ease. Why do they ask for a tax on Grain in this country their assertion is that the Western Farmers sent into Canada wheat Oats and Indian Corn at less prices than they Are offered for Here Aud so undersell our Farmers. To prevent them from underselling our Farmers it is demanded that their produce shall be taxed. But if the. Undersell our Farmers that simply proves that they Are getting less prices for their produce at Home than is obtainable Here. If for instance Oats can be purchased in the Western states the Carriage paid on them for hundreds of Nile of freight by rail and water and then sold in cauda at less prices than ordinarily Rule Here it is obvious that the Price which the states Farmer obtains for that article must to very in my a indeed. The same holds Good with regard to his wheat and Indian Corn. To bring those articles to this country costs a Good Deal of Money in the Way of freight expenses and if As the tories claim they Are after their arrival a a slaughtered in the Canadian Market then it is the Western Farmer who loses by the operation. So that the National policy As it operates in the states burdens tho Farmer there with heavy taxation in every conceivable shape while at the same time his produce secures such Low and unsatisfactory prices that to has after paying the Cost of trans portion to this country to sacrifice his products Here in order to realize on them at All. To pays the highest prices for what he has to Purchase and obtains the lowest prices for what he has to times. Prize. At the end of his line Asho Drew it up was dangling one of those Golden Tench so abundant in the Ganges. When soup Ramany perceived what Fine fish he had caught he uttered one of those Long Low gurgling notes of satisfaction by which an elephant expresses Joy and to waited patiently expecting Jim to take his prize off the Heok and put on some More bait for him. But Jim the Little Rascal sometimes liked to plague old soup. He nodded to us As much As to say a look out and you la see fun now a then he took off the fish which he threw into a water Jar placed there for the purpose and went Hack to his place without putting any bait on old soups Hook. The intelligent animal did not attempt to throw his line into the water. He tried to move Jim by Low pleading cries. It was curious to see what tender tones he a domed to try to give his voice. Seeing that Jim paid no attention to his Calls but sat and laughed As he handled his own line old soup went up to him and with his trunk tried to turn his head in the direction of tho bait Box. At last when he found that All to could do would not induce his wilful Friend to help him he turned round As if struck by a sudden thought and snatching up in his trunk the Box that hold the bait came and Laid it Down at the major s feet then picking up his Rod he held it out to Hia master. A a what do you want me to do with this old soup 1 a a said the major. The creature lifted one great foot after the other and began to utter his plaintive Ory. Out of mischief i took Jimmy a part and picking up the Baic Box pral tended to run with it. The elephant Wasj the Portland press knows a boy who not going to be teased he to.
