and in the steps be'i t.gken toke bring

what manner a re-union will be ac-

agreement. There can be no doubt
that the unity of the Order will soon
bring back this body to its normal
condition of a "great power for good,"
and we trust that no obstacle will be
thrown in the way of such a result by
a recurrence to old .gi iuvances.

THE GOOD *TEMPLAR LAWSUIT.
The reference in the case, Lees v.
Malins, adjourned from the 13th June
last, came before the special referee, Al-'
fred Wills, Esq., Q.C., in the Queen's
Bench Division of the High Court of
Justice on Thursday last, October 27.
Mr. Digby Seymour, Q.0., Mr. Gains-
ford Bruce, and Mr. Macdonnell appear-
ed for the plaintiff; and Mr. Barler,
and Mr. Strachan for the defendant.
The examinatil.,u of Mr. Win. Stock-
bridge was resumed by Mr. Bruce, and:
the cross-examination was entered upon.
by Mr. Strachan. It having been clearly
brought out by Mr. Stockbridge that,
while Mr. Malins was addressing the
Grand Lodge of England Session in
London, in July, 1875, charging the Right
Worthy Grand Lodge with neglecting
to make a provision for the introducing
of the negro into the Order, he neglected
to inform the members there a:. that he had, at'the previous Session of
the Bight Worthy Grand Lodge (in
May, 1875, given notice to "i es,-.iUt the
very resoluti,:,n adopted by that body,
by which the ne-gro had been and could
be admitted into the Order in those
parts where %\f'. Malius ail,..:! he had
beeun exeTuded. The withholilin.v- ofthis
important iiiforuation of which Mr.
Stockbridge comphin.id, and which led
to the false i-sue of N-.'-ro Ex-lu-i:ti-"
Sbeing raised, induced the interposition
S'of the le iint-dl referee, who, after putting
questions to the witu .--i. whL clearly
brought out the true position of matters,
stopped the cross-examination, and, ad-


dressing the learned counsel, strongly
urged an amicable settlement with a
view to re-union. After hearing the
learned counsel, the referee suggested a
private interview, and they retired with
him, accompanied by Mr. Stoekbridge
and Mr. C :. representing the solicit-
ors of the parties. After an absence of
an hour the following recommendations
were, with the consent of Dr. Lees and
Mr. Malins, adopted and signed by their f
leading counsel 3
RECOMMENDATIONS.
1. That both parties accept the advice ]
and suggestions of the referee, as to the
desirability of re-union, on the following
basis:
2. That it is admitted that both sides
are equally anxious to uphold the prin-
ciple of the absolute equality of the
white manr aidthe negro, as regards ad-
mission to the Order.
3. That the parties endeavor to pro- a
cure the appointment of a Couulmitt-ee
of Conference-seven on: each side-to
consider and prepare a scheme of re-
union and settlement of-differences.
4. That it be iunders-tood that the con-
templated re-union involve the restora-
tion of the connection between the Right
Worthy Grand Lodge and the whole of
the Good Templars in England.
,5. That such a restoration be subject
to the adoption by Right Worthy Grand
Lodge of such amendments of constitu-
tion, or thl:r me:i ^ures, asmay be neces-
sary to carry out the recommendations
of the Committee of Conference.
6. Mr. Wills, Q.C., at the urgent re-
quest of the parties, consents to preside
at the Conference, and to report. The
Committee to meet on December 28, inu
London.

DOES THE WORLD MISS ANY
ONE?
Not long. The best and most use-
hul of us will soon 1he fofgotten. Those
who to-day are filling a ; large place
in the world's regard will pass away
from the remembrance of man in a few
months, or at farthest, in a few years
after the grave has closed upon their
remains.
We are shedding tears above a new-
ly made grave and wildly crying out in
our grief that our loss is irreparable,
yet, in a short time, tendrils of love
have entwined around other supports,
and we npo longer miss the one who
has gone.
So passes the world. But there
are those to whom a loss is beyond
repair. There are men from whose
memories no woman's smile can chase
recollections of the sweet face that
has given up all its beauty at death's
icy touch. There are women whose
blighted faith extends beyond the
grave, and drives away as profane
those who would entice them from a
worship of their buried lovers.
Such loyalty, however, is hidden
away from the public gaze. The
world sweeps on beside and around
them and cares not to look in upon
this unobtruding grief. It carves a
Line and rears a stone over the dead
and hastens away to offer homage to
the living.
INTEMPERANCE THE CAUSE OF
CRIME.
Our murders, whence do they come ?
Come they not, generally, on account of
strong ,drink? ,Who .denies ? Suote
whiskey makers and some whiskey ven-
ders. But what are the facts in the
case ? Sorrowing wives, desolate moth-
ers and orphaned children, if allowed to
speak, could tell a wonderful story on
this subject. The morning papers say,
he was killed last i.iglit at a certain
saloon, he took- his own, life--had been
on a spree for. a week, etc. Wiat was
the cause of his death? Whiskey. What
caused that noble young man to fall, and
thus. give up his manhood, and throw a
stigma upon the name of his family?
Whiskey ;: y.hisky did it. What causes
our prisons to ijlti!,.! and our taxes to
increase annually ? Whiskey is at the
bottom of it. What causes such squalid
poverty in many of our large cities to-
day ? Whiskey is the one powerful un-
derlying cause. The bloated faces, red
eyes and pimpled noses, whence come
they? There can be but one answer
-strong drink. Do our people know
these facts? Certainly they do. Why,
then, is this evil tolerated ? Because
of thb money there is in it. Thereby
many live easy, though the earnings are
often snatched away from the innocent
and helpless. Christian people, touch
not, except in in \\ ig out the evil.

SCIENCE,-
Granite begins to yield at a tempe-
rature between 700 aikd 800 sand-
stones show greater power of endu-
rence, massive limestones still greater
and marble the greatest. Conglome-
rates are among the weakest stones.
Pap-er belting is used with success
in the machinery liall of an exhibition
now held in Japan. It is stated that
the belting made of paper has been
tested ;unj founld'to be much stronger
than that made of oidinzary leather.

The storm which passed over this vil-

take the mortgage offi a single one of them.

A boy was asked which was the greatest
evil, hurting another's feeling or his finger.

That theological professors can some-
times make mistakes as easily as other
people is shown by the remarkable one
made by one of these gentlemen in a
sermon delivered a few Sundays ago.
He was telling his congregation some-
thing about hope. In the course of his
remarks he said that the representation
of hope by an anchor was first intro-
duced by the poet Spenser, and that
other poets followed him in its use." He
further declared that an anchor is by no
means the best emblem that could have
'been selected, although he omitted to
Essay what would have made a better one;
He was oblivious of the fact that the ex-
pression occurs in the sixth chapter of
the Epistle to the Hebrews, "which
- hope we have as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stb dfast. Some of the
hearere of this learned man suggested
that he should become better acquainted
with the New Testament.
HISTORICAL.
Charles I. died on the scaffold.
Charles II. died suddenly-it is said of
apoplexy.
SJames I died from drinking and the ef-
fects of vice.
William Rntus died the death of thIe poor
- stags which he hunted.
The first sun dial was erected in Rome in
the year of the city 447.
\ illi.im III. died of consumptive habits
iof body and froam the stumbling of his
L horse.
S William the Conqueror died from enor-
ntous fat, from dritik, and 'r,:i the violence
Sof his passions, .
Among the Anulo-Sxons the science of
medicine and of the law was monpolized by
e the clergy.
T'he question of the Hanoverian succes-
sion to the throne of England was carried
Sby a single vote.
tonoe.coffins occur among the A:,lo-
s Saxons as early as 695, and were not quite
d obsolete before the reign of Henry VIII,


I, t is said that the word bumper"takes
r its origin from the grace p. Our Roman
C (atholic ucestors. afterr their meals, drank
i the Pope's health. "Au boan pere."
Hence the corruption.


Farm aand Household.
CIIAPPRD HANDS.-A simple mixture of
qual qiianiities of rich cream and stroPig
vinegarr will make'a compound which, if
ised on the hands after washing them, will
cure'chap.
To C.E-N Ciora,.-The best way is to
.teep them in warm water for half aian r,
then use borax soup, rubbing it free on
the most soiled part fiinaly washing wqll
with very hot water. Afterwards rinse in'
cold water.
CMANING KNIVvs.-Knives, after using,
should be wiped wi It soft papar, removing
the grease, etc., then placed in a deep can
or vessel, keeping the handles above water,
lukewarm, until washed clean, fiten throuh-
ly dried.'
To WAsH QUILT&-A lady writes t
"To wash quilts, comfortable, tickings,
sackings, etc., soak in pure cold water
twenty tour hours or more, then rub
through warm water with a little soap, and
rinse well." It is worth trying.
To I ESSON FRICTION FOR FURNITURE.-
Black lead is excellent to lesson friction
between two pieces of wurk. The sides
and iests of desks or bureau drawers may
be made to move easily by spreading com-
mon stove-blacking evenly with a cloth or
the linger over their surfaces. Time and
patience may thus be saved.
ITRATING THE OvES.-Jt the over is too hot
when ready to bNike cake, lay a large wire
grate on the oven bottom, or place some
nails or old pieces of iron on the bottom
of the oven. Puat a piece of paper over
the cake. Take one or two covers half oft,
till the oven is cooled off ; but never open
the oven door. That will make the cake
fall. Close the drafts, but they should be
partially opened always while baking.
When cake seems to be done, try it with a
clean straw or splint from a broom, or,
better s ill, keep a long knittingneedle for
that pur|poe. Then 0one is sure it is al-
ways c ean. It is not pleasant to think
of using a splint from a broom, not know-
ing what it may have been used forilast.-
If this comes out of the cake dry' amd
clean the cake is done, but if they are any
doubts leave it in a few minutes longer.
MAXIMS FOR FARMERS.
It is worth while for all farmers, every.
where, to remember that thorough culture
is better thau three mortgages -on their
farms.
That more stock perish from famine
than fodder.
That a horse that lays his ears back and
looks lightning when any one approaches
him is vicious. Don't buy him.
That over-fed fowls won't lay eggs.
That educating children properly isa
money lent at one hundred per cent.
That one evening spent at home iti
study is more profitable than ten lounging
around country taverns,
That 'ows should always be milked re-
gularly and clean.
That it is the duty of every man to take.
a good, reliable, entertaiing paper, and
pay for it promptly, of course.

FURNISIHNG A HOME.
In buying our furniture, we mnst try to
suit it to the shape of the room for which
it is designed : thit, indeed, is the secret of
tasteful furnishing. One.can readily im-
agine that the table, n d couch, and chiff-
onneire which mighL look remarkably well
in a large and lofty room, would appear
heavy for and would overcrowd one of
small dimensions. As a rule, therefore, no
large piece of furniture should be brought
into a small room; at the same time it
must be re:itembered that it is a possible
error to go to the other extreme. and hav-
ing everything on too diminutive a scale.
A correspondent writes ; I lately went in-
to a parlor wherein were six little stands,
and thechairs were all of such a slight and
elegant style that I ran my eye around the
room, wonlrring on hic, I dare venture
to sit (ownt. A few days afterward, I
found in ,lf in a much humabler room, but
one which \ua, lturnikhed far more to my
t.I-t. than thle t heir. It, was a small apart-
menat, freslly I.'linted and newly papered,
with a narrow l'ack w:dinut moulding to
receive the iwf'tamc I,, lks. It had a cheer-
fuil ingraiin carpet ; fresh white curtains at
the windows thIt bok over a imeadow to
the mountains I evt, ,1d; two or three
hair-eloth rockers, and some pretty camp-
chairs and ottainais ; a small centre "table
for books and the t'rc'i.c''CAlpe ; a few pie-
tures, and a profusion of iniagim i',ts filled
with i uiin'g vines. This h;ai the simple
furnitnre of the room, that a iboudy could
lum and artnanue; and ye.t it hnil a charm
that we ha'e mit..ed -Mi'n..limi"s t'rom sit'e-


ly |p;arhrs--a chanlrn with which artistic

the West Indies, went out that morn-
ing in an open skiff, to fish in the
neighborhood of the reefs opposite
Baliey's lay. The forepart of the day
was fine, but in tle afternoon the wind
suddenly veered to the north, and be-
came violent, causing the waters to
roll roughly. The inmates of thle boat
