The Canadian Government recently sent an appraiser to the principal bicycle factories in this country, to determine the exact value of various makes for import into Canada. After an exhaustive investigation, his report to his Government rated Columbia Bicycles 7Vs per cent, higher than any other make and they & pay duty accordingly. This but confirms the popular verdict. Ccl- umbias are <?• <* J* STANDARD CF T " v v Unequalled, U:..,:•''—•• A RAID IN CHINATOWN. Quan Yiok Nam Helps New York POlloo Ferret Out Gambling Dens.

The police, aided by Quan 1'ick Nam, an Americanized Cliluaman, raided a mumber of gambling; houses, and incidentally Najn shot a countryman jn the loc* The rnidero, who left tie station house nt 0:30 o'clock, were headed by, Cant, Young, and besides Quan Nam there were a dozen policemen in citi van's clothes. At No. 11 Motts street Nnra struck a lottery game and the police succeeded in capturing ten m*n. The raiders next visited 17 Mott street, whore there was another lottery m full blast, but the police only succeeded in capturing Ah Louis, the iilleged proprietor, and one Chinaman. . The next place on the programme was the policy shop on the upper floor nt SS Mott street, Nam went ahead to tet the evidence, but by mistake, ho entered the tenement at No. IS, and going to u rear room on the right side of the first floor, he found nbout £0 men gathered about a lottery game. After he had bought n. ticket, which he was go- in- to keep for evidence, he seixed the lavout. and shouted: "Stop the game!" "What's that?" asked Ah Chung, the proprietor. "The police are here," said >am, but when lie opened the door and shouted, no one answered the call. Ah Chung seized a carving knife, and, jumping over the counter behind which he stood, he made a drive at Nam. The blow grazed the spy's shoulder, and before Fie had time to move a. step another Chinaman struck him a heavy blow over the right eye with a stool. The infuriated Chinamen then crowded about Nam and kicked him nnd punched him until he nenrlv fainted. At last he managed to draw his pistol, and, aiming low at the circle of legs about him, he fired B shot. There was a wild yell nnd a scampering of mur.y feet, nnd when Nam wiped the blood from Ins ey«fl he found no one in the room with him except one Chinaman, who was shot in the thi!?h. Nam seized the carving- knife and stood guard ovor him. Tn the meantime Capt. Young and his men had gone to 23 Mott street where they captured ten men. When they did not"flnd Nam on the top floor the raid- crs returned to the street, The noise of the row and sound of the pistol shot in No. IS aroused the whole neighborhood, and the raiders charged down the street double quick time. They found N;\m with his face battered and scratched and his Chinese clothes hong- ing in tatters about him, still guarding the wounded roan. Then the, reserves and the patrol wagon came, and the work of gathering up tluj prisoners began. Several stone--! were tUrowr nt the raiders, but none was injured. The prisoners were all locked up in the station house. Quan Yick Nam came to this city from San. Francisco, where he had given valuable nid to the chief of police in cleaning out the gambling dens of the western Chinatown. Finally the gamblers made it so hot for him that he was obliged to leave the Pacific slope, and two years ago ho came to New York. He volunteered his assistance to the police, nnd they have all but killed the gambling in Mott nnd Pell streets. On several occasions Nam has been assaulted while walking through the streets of Chinatown, and once/not long ngo, he was severe- •WEST BOUND. ,. . Lculs limited dnlly, 'ol 'old .. )v :!

The importance 'of our army pistol bcin"- given 'more stopping power is well illustrated by u. case alluded to by Col. Fosbery which occurred in one of the actions fought during the Indian mutiny, says the United Service Gn- zctte. An officer who especially prided himself on his pistol shooting was attacked by a stalwart mutineer, armed with a heavy sword. The officer, unfortunately for himself, carried a Colt d •navy pistol, which was of small caliber. fired a sharp-pointed picket bullet of CO to the pound and a heavy charge of powder, its range being at least 000 yards. This he proceeded to empty mlo the Sepoy as he advanced, but, having done this, be waited just one second too long to see the effect of the shooting, nnd was cloven to the teeth by his antagonist. who then dropped down dead beside him. Five out of the six bullets bed struck the Sepoy close together in Ihc chest, and had all passed through him and out at his back. Hero was an accurate weapon used with deliberation and skill, having long range and great oem-tration, and all to no purpose. Ihc enemy was killed, it was true, but not stopped until he had been able to inflict a' fatal wo'und upon his slayer. SULTAN A SICK MAN, Knler of Turkey"s^a" to Be Suffering; with Tumor of the Splno. Keliable advices from Constantinople are to the effect that the sultan is suffering f rod tumor of the spine. His physicians wanted to perform an oper- eration on him, but when he was told that it could only be performed at the risk of his life, he declined to permit the physicians to operate. It appears that at the Selamlik on Friday, the Moslem Sabbath, when the sultan drives Iri state from the palace *° «>e mosque to perform hi» religious duties, his face -was paintod In order to conceal from the spectators the ravages caused by hia illnesa. • _ IB there any reason 'for dodging and ignoring a Rreat and vital fact simply because a few prejudiced, misguided •(people have anti' quated ideus of what constitutes morality and modesty? Reason and honesty say —certainly not. Men and women are attracted to each other because they are men and .women and because it is right and necessary that they should be so attracted. The things that make a man attractive are the characteristics caused by hia inherent -manli- 'ness—by the strength which makes him a perfect man. Tht same is true of wo man. There is strong, attractiveness in perfect health. There is fascination and magnetism in it. A wo- 'man cannot be entirely womanly—she cannot be a perfect woman—if she is not in perfect health. In ^ ^ just so much as her ikkness affects the organs that make her a woman, in just BO much she loses attractiveness This it the vital part of her healtb. If anything wronn there it may result m all manner of ills all over the body Careless, or too busy, physicians frequently treat the 'symptoms of this kind of disorder as •cparate and distinct ailments. The symptoms are many and varied, so much so that when a woman is sick in any way, the first thought should be given to the organs distinctly feminine. About 9 hmes in 10 the cause of the trouble will be found there Dr Pierct's Favorite Prescription cures all disorders of this kind. There is no guesswork about it. There is no chance about it. It is a fact that has been demonstrated in 30 •olid years of extensive practice. thousands of women have written grateful letters, who have wished the whole world of women to know the wonderful things tha " Prescription" bas done tot them. THE HORSE OF THE CENTURY. Wonderful Career or the Great Trotter Uextor. Mr. Jonas Hawkins, of Ora.nge county, obtained from a strolling gypsy band a brown mare, 15.2 hands, witm four white feet. He used her, says Scribncr's Magazine, lor a family nng. nnd by Seeley's American Star got a black filly, foaled in 1S4S, which was named Clara. The filly bftcnmo the property of his son, Jonathan Hawkins, and s,he grew into a m;ire of 14.3 hands. She had u star, snip and three white feet, and was driven pretty hard on the country roads by her young m« s ter. In 1357, by Kysdvk's ITnmble- toni.in, she had the paragon. Dexter. The brown gelding, with blaze and four white feet, was purchased by Mr. George B. Alley, for HOO, and be subsequently became the property of Mr. A. F. Fnwcett. Dexter, under the tutorship of Hiram Woodruff, made.his first public apprnrance at Fashiou Course, May 4, 1SG4, He met and defeated, during his short but brilliant turf career, Buch horses as Gen. Butler, George II. Patclien, Jr., Lady Thome and Goldsmith Maid, and ho probably was in the enjoyment of more world-wide fame lion any horse foaled on American soil. He brought Build Doble into public notice, and the sight of the white-faced g-cldtag coming w th tremendous force down the home-stretch Inspired the loftiest dreams. The people swung their hats and shouted: "Hurrah for Dcxt&r! Long live the horse of the century!" HIS GREATEST' SOLICITUDE. Tempest To«e<l Mariner Wnntel to Hear from tho Game.

Wltu AN! llone«» Who Nursed it Puppy-Tho Cat jlilld Her ClllviuM». ;- ; Auiumle form very strong and very strange friendships, nays t.hc Xuw York Journal. Thus, for rnxmiw. a lioness from Sornc'likind has rceeatJy taken uu-. tier lior mo«t tender protection a youthful bull-wrier, which -sin' treats as well «s if he were her own son and htir. Curi- ciisly enough, she will have nothing whatever to do with h? r young friend's n.ffectiona.te brothers nnd iristers, ajid vliile the favorite reposes securely under her protecting paw, she hafi nothing but u very suggestive sjiarl for nirthe rest. Again, there, is a young Maltese cat, which, on finding out in some mysterious manner that a. nestf ul of tiny chickens were left motherless, took the orphaned family at once in hand ('or, laiheos pa.w) and the Huffy party made themselves immediately at home in the warm fur coat of tha strange foster- mother. If, we are told, one of (he ba» bies ever happens to stray too far afield, the furry foster-moriicr reoalls it at once with a plaintiff mew. An equally curious case is told by M. Bellet of a terrisr awl a cat, both 'of whom were the mothers of happy families in the same stables, exchanging their progeny and nursing and tending their u-dopled children with the utmost care. At the Jardin des Mantes, in Paris, a lioness aim! a hound live in thi.' same cage in perfect peace and friendship, and in a corner in north Germany a giLjnek^epor has recently reared a mixed litter of pups and fox nanion, the American vi . a friend, put off from the Calpo-Rowing club piers to visit her.. As they clambered up the ship* gadder 0h*&r-WH* welcomed by the captain, a jolly Yankee from Plymouth, and by hisrathf-.r rlooroy crew. "Captain, arc you in trouble?

She Couldn't Walt. When Mme. Welba was in Washington, recently she met Speaker Reed in the capitol. "Why don't you have a fight here?", she said to him, in Laughing protest, "I would much rather see a fight than hear a speech." "Then, why didn't you let me know you were coming?" said Speaker R*ed, gallantly. "I would have had a fight for your special delight, and if you will only wait I will go on the floor and start a row this minute," But.Mmc.-Melba couldn't wait, and the speaker's offer came to naught. ^ / Just for the 8i«bi of BJood. Every bull, killed in o. Mexican bull fight is allowed to gore two horses"!f he will. The Mexicans love the sight of blood and applaud frantically when the poor horses are torn open. The horses used for the purpose are a most miser- nble lot. The owner pats' three dollaw in Mexican money for each horse sent into the ring and $12 additional if the animal Is killed. A Mexican dollar is •worth about 55 cents in 'American money. A COLD CLIMATE. A Candle FiniM It Hard Work to Keep • Warm In the Arctics Cold is merely a relative term. The resident «f the strni-tropical countries shivers when the thermometer falls V> ,10 degrees, while the Laplander and Eskimo think it is comfortable at zero. For real cold, and plenty of it, or.o must go to the polnr regions. Think of living where the mercury goes down to 36 degrees below zero in the house, in spite of the stove. Of course, in such a case, fur garments are piled on until a man looks like a great bundle of skins. Dr. Moss, of the polar expedition of 1S75-7C, among other things, tells ot the effect of cold on. a wax candle which he burned there. The temperature was 35 degrees below zero, ar.d the doctor must have been considerably discouraged when, looking at his candle, rediscovered that the flame had all it, could do to keep warm. It was so cold that the flame coulil not melt all the wax o£ the candle, but was forced to cut its way down, leav- fng a sort of skeleton o*' the candk- standing. There was heat enough, however, to melt oddly-shaped holes in the thin xvalls of wax, and the result was a beautiful lace-like cylinder of white, with a tongue of yellow flame burning inside of it and sending out-into (he darkness many streaks of Sight. . V.v . A BIG BEAVER. Discovery of tho Skull of a Monster of tho yunrtcrnnry Age. One of the rarest of fossi) remains has been unearthed in Michigan, near the Indiana, state line, and is now in the Tjossesion of George -A. Baker, of South Bend, Ind., says the Cincinnati Com- mercial-Oaxettc. It is the skull ol a mammoth beaver, a monster of the quaternary age, existing coutempora.- noously with" the mastodon and mega- therium. In only five other instances in the United States, and in this country alone, have any portion of the. remains of a mnrnmoth beaver been found, and these were- always of tlw ti'«th or skull, but generally of only the teeth. The first discovery was at Nashport. Licking county, 0.. by. Prof. Foster, whose nnd, a skull, is described in American Rocnti by Prof. Allen, and a. cast of which was, taken by Prof. Agassiz, and the cast alone remains. The skull possessed by Mr. Baker is l2'/.inches long, is about 6 inches wide, and" stands about 5 inches high. It has the teeth and also the great incisors used in tree-cutting; the incisors lire about 9 inches long and 1% inches in diameter. It was -found in a bog and ij-om comparisons with other specimens it is th« largest and finest ow known to exist. The live ani-uial could not have weighed less than 400 pounds, _____ Kins Humbert anil His Soldiers. King Humbert, in the name of himself ot Queen Margherita, and of the princes of the royal famil/ of Italy, has o-ivcn to the government for the families of the dead and wounded soldiers in Africa the sum of 4,000,000 francs. This sum is to 'be distributed without distinction between the Italian and the nativfsoldiers. who fought side by side no-ainst the Abyssiniaus. King Humbert has also expressed his intention of furnishing, if necessary, another sum of l.OOO.U'OO francs, in his r.nme and that of the queer., to be divided among the \vovmded. __ A Travollnd Crcmntory. \ traveling military crematory has b~en ; n vented to dispose of the bodies of soldiers killed in battle.
