ced that the services will be held as follows ;-

fixed upon for the funeral of Queen Victoria. The
only exception to this-rule hi this city wi!l be the
Coffee Exchange and the Mercantile Exchange,
which will open their doors as usual unless con-
trary action is taken later. The Managers of the
Mercantile Exchange explain that it would be
quite impossible for the Exchange to close on that
day, as the members handle perishable goods, and
the railroads will deliver freight on that day.
The doors of the Metal Exchange will be open,
but there will be no calls, and therefore no busi-
ness. The Stock and Cotton Exchanges will be
closed. The Maritime Exchange will be open for
th1.- pii-lig of maritime news only.

closed on Saturday, the Exchanges of New Orleans,

Wt' the request of some of the members of the
Mcnlih.*iit'- Association of New York the officers
of that organization communicated with a number
of houses asking them if they would close their
places of business at 12 o'clock Saturday next as
a t.- tiiiniial in honour of the memory of the late
Quein Vitoitia. A number have already signi-
fied thliiir hilt ntiiu-- to do so.
Many of the newspapers, in their references to
Queen Victoria's death, have mentioned, as one
of her best known portraits, that painted near the
beginning of her reign by Thomas Sully for the
St. George's Society of Philadelphia. A letter
written by a daughter of Sully's in 1838 tells the
story of the last sitting for this picture, including
perhaps the only case in history where an Ameri-
can girl personated a queen in the queen's- own
presence and by her consent. It seems that Sully
wished to have the royal jewels to paint from, and
the Queen kindly proposed to put them on ; but.
he protested that the sitting would be too long
and tedious, and suggested that lie be allowe.l to
bring his daughter as his model. The Queen as-1
sented, and the next day he brought Miss Blanche
Sully to the palace. They were ushered into a
room where, near a window, was a dais covered
with crimson, and the Queen's throne chair of
crimson and gold mounted on it. One of the
ladies-in-waiting helped deck the young American
girl in the diamond ear-rings, the collar of St.
George, and the other jewels, and pose her on the
throne. A moment later Queen Victoria ap-
As the Queen approached," said the girl in
d..-.' inliigi tHi.. scene to lIr fuiiol-, I descended
from the throne in my borrowed plumes and made
a low obeisanice. Her Majesty returned it, and
immediately entered into conversation with me,
asking various questions, such as, how I liked it,
etc.; then asked my father my age, and after chat-
ting and looking at the picture, withdrew-not,
however, before my father had requested her au-
Afterward the Queen sent by a lady-in-waiting
an autograph addressed to Mr. Sully and one to
Miss Blanche, with a little head of herself model-
led in silver, showing her as she looked while
Princess Victoria, which she requested the girl to
accept as a souvenir of the visit. A few days la-
ter, Sully took his daughter to pose for him in the

coronation robe. They were furnished with pro-
per credentials addressed to the Queen's robe-ma-
ker, and Miss Blanche had to play the Queen
again. The great robe she described as six yards
long, of velvet, lined with ermine, and so heavy
that she was heartily glad when her father had
finished his sketches.

WVeathi(r Maps.

We are indebted to the kindness of Mr. S. H.
A. Greet, Acting Local Superintendent of the
Halifax and Bermudas Cable Coy., for a v ew of
copies of the weather maps issued daily by the
U. S. weather bureau. The observations are
taken at 8 a. m. and at 8 p. in. every day, and
include the maximum and miiinium ntempera-
tures for 24 hours, direction and force of wind,
andl barometric readings. Ti.e maps are clearly
printed ; the markings are easily intelligible ; and
a forecast of the weather for the next 24 hours
accompanies each. The importance of Bermuda
as a station is fully recognized at last, and our
little capital stands fifth on the list of North At-
an.tic and European R eporst.




Therefore we may pass without revnlsiin to
the second clause of the herald's cry. Loni i'r,
the King.
The new century Ihas opened full of .-:ni-
ficance. The new reign opens -li Itin-*lhv 1) the-
very threshold of it. Strange tlam t in. reignr
of the good Victoria should end almost w;ith
the century. the Centuinry with hliich her
name will ever be, perhaps before an. other name,
associated. ThIe new occupant of the throne,
while hlie succeeds to the most glorious heritage
I known in history, inherits also a mighty responsi-
bility. The solid success of the past reign is in
some some sort the measure of the duties of this.
Let us pray for our King that the effectuul fer-
vent prayer of Solomon may give the key to his
own petitions : Give me now wisdom and know-
ledge, that I may ,o out and come in before this
people : for who can judge this thy people that is
so great."
Long live lhlA KW',!
The most prominent movement now agitating
the minds of British Subjects is that of imperial-
ism, and it is capable of the noblest and richest
fruits. But as it exists, it is and must be a cause
of great alarm to those who believe most deeply
in the iru1 Christian mission of 'our Anglo-Saxon
race. It is extraordinarily without moral anxie-
ty : it is very deaf to moral appeals. It is or may
easily become the worship of our own "unregene-
rate British selves." If it expresses itself religious-
ly it appears to be crying Is not this great Bab-
ylon that wv have builded?" Let us call to
mind the words of one who at all events lacks
not patriotism.
For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard
All valiant dust that builds on dust
And, guarding, calls not Thee to guard
Judge of the nations spare us yet !
Lest we forget Lest we forget!

In response to the request of our correspondent,
Pewrenter, we have much pleasure in publishing
below the sermon preached by the Reverend W.
I. Yates in the Parish Church. Pembroke, last
Sunday. The illness under which the Reverend is suffering at present has rendered the
task of revision one of much difficulty.
We understand that Mr. Yates has severed his
connection with the Church in Bermuda and ex-
pects to leave within a few weeks.
Sermon on the death of Her Majes-
ty Quieeni Victoria, delivered In
Pembroke Parish Church by
the Rev. W. I T Yates.

I PETER. iv. 17.-Honour the King.
The Queen is dead Long live the Ki6rg i.
How it startles us by its seeming brutality!
Hlow instinctively the moral sense of us revolts
What a shudder of unspeakable horror steals over
us like the exquisite tretmble-inexplicable, of
which we say, "some one walked over my grave."
Why should the triumph so soon succeed the
wail ? Why. almost before the one lies cold,
should another be proclaimed with all the pomp
and pageantry which in our poignant grief and
to our overstrung nerves, seems hollow mockery ?
Surely here, if anywhere, we: should expect no
shocking of the moral sense, no lack of decency
and fittingness. t,,, I
And yet-and yet- the offence is but seeming,
time and tide wait not, the grey old world must
move on, this aggregate of phenomena and condi-
tions, and events, this human mob which inhabits
it with its complex life, and manners and custom
and law, these in their manifold correspondence
and correlation-this ship of state, for example,
the embodiment of control, coherence, govern-
ment, must be steered, and guided and captained.
Some one must be at the helm. It must not be
let go for a moment, lest the vessel drift on the
wild resistless sea, lest perchance even she go
down in the black seething mass of waters.
The cry of the herald, then seemingly so brutal,
so hard, callous, and almost eerie, is but like un-
to and well nigh imperative as-that other which
we heard but a day agone, Ring out the old, ring
in the new.
The Queen is dead! Yesterday a sorrowing peo-
ple took their long sad farewell, to-morrow a
heart broken family will lay her body to rest, ash-
es to ashes, dust to dust; in sure and certain hope
of the Resurection to eternal life, through our
Lord Jesus Christ : Who shall change-not our
vile body" as in the Burial Service, but as the
Greek has it-" this body of our humiliation,"
that it may.v le likeunto His glorious body, ac-
cording to the mighty working whereby He is able
to subdue all things to Himself.
The Queen. is dead! The herald's cry rings
sharply in our ears, we cannot-how can we-rzal-
I ize the awful void which exists, and will for long
time exist in out Empire's life. Of her noble life
itself, all that from this place could be said, has
been said-how for well nigh sixty-four years the
highest office entrusted to human being, that of
supreme rule over the world's greatest empire, dur-
ing a period of unparalleled prosperity, has been
held by one, who in all attributes of noble cha-
racter stands for ever an example to posterity.
It has been said by perhaps the greatest writer
of English prose in all time that "a good woman
only, does not destroy where she passes" that
after her footsteps the flowers bloom into new and
richer life. If that is true of all good women, it was
preeminentriv trie of our late beloved Queen. The
lightof her life has gone out from us, and we are
bereaved indeed. ''
"Hush the Dead March wails in the people's
S ears :
The dark crowd moves, and there are sobs and
The black earth yawns the mortal disappears :
Ashes'to ashes, dust to-dust;
S 10- i1- i on.'e %I.. -eemed so great-
Gone : lint nothing can bereave her
Of the for.:e she made her own
Being here; -and we believe her
Something far advanced in state
And that she wears a truer crown
Than any wreath that man can weave her.
Speak no more of her renown,
Lay your earthly fancies down,
And in the vast Cathedral leave her
God accept her, Christ receive her."
The Queen is dead! But that is only a popular
phrase, it is only our brusque English way of ex-
pressing it. Do you know or care to remember
the beautiful annual custom of the early Chris-
tians, how they were wont to meet at the tombs
of the saints and martyrs in catacombs, and else-
where, on the anniversary and keep-not the
death-day, but, as they beautifully called it-the
birthday? The soul had gone home, they,
and the day of its release from the bondage of the
flesh was the day of its birth into liberty, and the
infinite lipo.-ibilities of the "many mansions."
The soul had gone home-home to the God whole
gave it, to a place of refreshment, light, and
peace, poetically," the bosom of Abraham where
sorrow and sighing are banished away, and the
hghtof God 's countenance ever .lhueth. The
same thought of home is finely expressed in what
is perhaps the most exquisite snatch of poetry of
all written by thIe late R L. Stevenson--written
to be placed on his grave.
Under thie wide and starry sky
Lay me down and let me lie
Glad did I live, and gladly die,
And I lay nme down with a will.
This be the verse yon grave for me,
Here he rests where hIe longed to be.
Home is the sailor home from the -.a 1I
And the hunter home from thIe hill."
The Queen lices !' lives, thank God, both in that
other world amnd here. ThIe wish of her own fa-
vourite poet laureate, that shie shonuhl leaxe us
rulers of her blood has been fulfilled. One hilidle
of her love takes up her sceptre and its diu.-,
she lives in him, and thIe highest wish that henart
can wish, or thought can frame, is, that like .\-
thur's knights of old, lie may be '" stamped illi
the iriage of thIe Queen."

piece of railing aft on the Ooamo, was smnished by
a sea. Two men went to make good the breach,
one of whom seeing that a rope was necessary to
ensure their safety whilst doing the repairs went
to get it, telling the other, a Norwegian named
Pederson, to wait till he came back. Pederson,
however, paid no, heed; and soon after the cry
of "man overboard" was raised. The ship put
about but it was 9 o'clock at night, dark, and a
heavy sea running. The Ocamo cruised around
for some time to no purpose, and then stood for
Bermuda where she reported having lost a man
overboard at 9 p. m. on Saturday, February 2nd.

The conception of imperialism is a glorious one,
but we must remember the source of our great-
ness and its purpose. We must remember the
rock whence we were hewn, the eternal purposes
of God for which our splendid destiny was vouch-
safed. Tire conception is, I repeat, a glorious one,
and capable of the most splendid fruition. But
it requires to be c'lristianiizedi. We are accustom-
ed to speak of England'? greatness in connection
with the Bible. It i ,1uite true that that first
grand out-budding of oair whole national exis-
tence," called the Reformation gave to us our no-
ble English translation of God's word, that this
well of English undefiled gave birth to the
writings of England's greatest Son, and to a new
English literature. And it is also true that in the
days of trouble, invasion, conquest and coloniza-
tion which succeeded, the 'neni who laid the foun-
dation of England's greatness by land and sea,
were men of deep personal piety, as well as of
courage and resolution. The kharki-fever is
undoubtedly a splendid disease, but we need to
christianize it. We want the patriotism but we
need the piety also. God grant that under the
rule of King Edward the Seventh our most san-
guine hopes nay be realized ; that the noble ideal
of imperialisni milay, ot lie niarreil by party spi-
rit, narrow excln'siveitess, or racial selfishness.
Long live the A/M y.
Never have social problems been so thoroughly
studied as during the past reign. I have lived
for more than seventy years," says one worthy of
our trust, "and I can remember the time when to
have required emnploy(-,r., to consider, in fixing
wages, in arranging workshop., in building cot-
tages, in determining tlir hour >of labour, not only
profits, but also, and more, the physical, moral,
and spiritual welfare of eoi king men, would have
been looked upon as a kind of lunacy. Christ
might indeed have said that one human soul was
of more value than the whole world, but that, no
doubt was a kind of Oriental figure, and at any
rate it was no concern of those who took the trou-
ble :of prosecuting worldly labours in order t#
make* money. No change whatever has been
made in the words of Christ, but how much more
those words have come to mean to us, through the
reluctant recognition which has been forced upon
all, partly by the teaching of great humanitarians,
and partly by the combination of labourers, that
after all man is nore than money, that chara-ter
is greater than possessions, that human truth and
honour, purity and love are more than all the vic-
tories of war or the accumulations of peace.",
It must not however be forgotten, that even
now, where men most do congregate, humin be-
ings made in the image of God, live-no exist
under terrible conditions. Hood's "Song of the
Shirt," Kingsley's "(Cheap clothes and nasty,"
Alton Locke and Yea't are as fundamentally true
to-day as when they were written, but without
thie power of novel ty. In some respects also the
tyranny and selfishness, the rapacity and greed
which once were the prerogatives of evil employ-
ers and capitalists have passed over to those or-
ganized unions of labour which came into exist-
ence only to fight these evils. I speak from
personal experience, I have seen not seldom
labour organizing itself apart from God, in oppo-
sition to existing law,: socialistic without -be-
ing Christian in its aimns. almost anarchic in its
attitude to the rights of property and imperilling
of social order. ,.
Never does organized oppression wear so ugly
a look as when it is practised by those who in-
scribe liberty and fraternity on their banner ; and
never does the contemptible"cry, Rem quocunque
modo rem sound so forbiddingly, as when it comes
from the lips which have cursed so bitterly the un-
scrupulous greed of the employer." We so often
forget that we are to seek not our own but another's
wealth. How truly the words of Christ are
needed,-" Why dost thou w ronm'. tiy brother,"
on the one side, and-,,Why dQst t/..,i set at
nought ithy brother." on the other side : and, .1,
addressed to both, Take heed, and hteware of coi-
vetousness." We pray today fir our' king a, erst-
while we prayedfor our Queen in health .rinl
wealth long to live."' The old I nlishi word
wealth means well-being. That nation ik rich-
est which produces the greatest numb.-r tof
healthy, bright-eyed, full-breatlhed, hl;ppy lnhuman
beings. That nation is richest which produces
the greatest number of souls of g)dl quality. "

In younr iss-ie of yesterday, publishing the press
,leOpatwhe- relating to the funeral of Her late Ma-
je-ty Queen Vicutoria, there appears an excerpt
troim the Dai y News giving an account of the Na-
val Pageant ; tIhe writer, a person named Hales, a
correspondent of the Daily News, comments in a
most insulting and cruel way on the absence of
the American Flag in the Naval show ; had he
taken the least trouble to look for an explanation,
he would have easily found that the .nearest
American war-ship was three thousand miles
from England, rendering it impossible for the
United States to have had a war-ship present, but
this correspondent preferred, in order that hlie
might round out a fine sounding sentence, to
make a mean fling at a friendly nation. I trust
that the services of such a dirty fellow will be
promptly dispensed with by his employer, and
write this, hoping that you will publish it and so
remove from the minds of the citizens of Bernmu-
da any feeling of soreness which the offensive pa-
ragraph might easily have caused.

held a meeting in the Public Buildings on Wed-
nesday last, the lion. R. D. Darrell in the chair.
It was decided to hold the next Exhibition at'
Rosebank Grounds, -Hamilton, kindly placed by
William Bluck, Esq, at the disposal of the Asso-
ciation on Thursday and Friday, April 25th and
2tith, on the same lines as last year. It was,
thought by the Committee that, if the press would
kI ,eip mi'l.'- proi,nmineutly before the public thir ..I-.
jects of th, -. exhibitions, they would be attended
with greater -tuccess. We shall supply details
later on.
A few ,'I'O incurred in our New York corre-

the puri-n:ihate of the Pennsylvania Coal Company's
Stock. The shareholderss have received 752 per
cent, but -l"'i li cent of that is a first distribu-
tion of ie-iened treasury assets. J. P. Morgan &
Co, paid .l',".* per cent on $5,000,000= $27,600,000
not 4 N,I0M,or as stated. The Pennsylvania
Coal Company only paid 12 per cent in the years
following the crisis of 1876. Their ordinary divi-
dend wai after that 16 per cent which, in five
million dollar. capital stock amounted to g.1',iiii,.
LPrevion-ly their dividend was 20 per cent, one
million dollar~-annually which would now have
been paid had thie old state of things continued.

WHEREAS I the Governor have received from
the Right Hon. the Secretary of State for the Col-
onies a despatch by cable conveying by command
of His Majesty the King a message to His Majes-
ty's subjects beyond the seas, I do hereby publish
and proclaim.the same within*these Islands.
By His Excellency's Command,
Acting Colonial Secretary.
The countless messages of loyal sympathy which
I have received from every partcof my dominions
over the seas testify to the universal grief in which
the whole Empire now mourns the loss of my be-
loved mother. In the welfare and prosperity of
her subjects throughout Greater Britain the Queen
ever evinced a heartfelt interest.J'She saw with
thankfulness the steady progress;which ;under a
wide extension of self government they had made
during her reign. She warmly appreciated their
unfailing loyalty to her throne and person and
was proud to think of those who hadj so nobly
fought and died for the Empire's cause in South
Africa. I have already declared that it will be
my constant endeavour to follow the great ex-
ample which has been bequeathed to me. In these
endeavours I shall have a confident trust in the
Sevotion and sympathy of the people and of their
several representative Assemblies throughout my
vast Colonial Dominions. With such loyal sup-
port I will with God's blessing solemnly work for
the promotion of the common welfare and security
of the Great Empire over,"which I have now been
called to reign. EDWARD R. AND I.

Mr WILLIAM THOMPSON, of 31, Station
Road, Harlesden, N.W., writes :-" In Septem.
ber I had no holiday, and as a consequence be-
came very much run down from overwork-
Whenever I stood up I would feel severe pains in
my limbs, and my nerves were very much out
of order. I lost my appetite completely, and was
totally unable to do anything. I had to give up
work on account of general weakness and neural-
gia, which was terrible, the pain in m'y head,
face, and neck being almost unbearable at times.
I was very low indeed, and my whole system was
out of order. While at home unable to go out or
to attend to mny duties, I noticed an advertise-
ment of Phosferine, and also noticed that this
medicine was recommended by 'Science Siftings.'
I then got a bottle. It brought me immediate
relief and after a few days I was nearly well
again. I got other bottles, and in a week or two
was able to return to my work. Before taking
Phosferine I had been under a doctor, but he did
me no good. I consider Phosferine a wonderful
restorative medicine, and I can gladly recommend
it to all who suffered as I did."
