One Cause of Hard Times. Kev.'Or. Mears, President of Hamil ton College, recently delivered an ad dress on the subject of drink as a cause for hard tiiues, from which we are in debted to the Rural Home for the follow ing extracts: What is the secret of a large part of the depression and distress which Un civilized world is suffering I War, in deed, and enormous standing armies, es pecially in the Old World, are in a large part to blame, and the consequences of civil war in our own country are doubt less still felt, and enter largely into our present suffering. But how can a people extricate themselves from such embar rassments when it is actually spending six hundred millions a year for what is at least a needless indulgence, and a source, of incalculable waste ami loss ? You must actually double these figures to get at the cost in money alone of the liquor traffic, to say nothing of the de struction of physical, mental and moral force, which cannot be put into figures, but which is...

Beecher and a Barber. One time Henry Ward Beeclier went down to Boston to lecture. In the af ternoon lie went into a barber shop of great tone and refinement to be shaved. The barber was a garrulous little fellow who entertained Mr. Beeclier, while he lathered his face, with intellectual con versation. He asked, "are you going to the lecture this evening? Going to the lecture 1" "Oh," Mr. Beeclier rejilied wearily, as a man who didn't take much stock in lectures. "I don't know; who's going to lecture V "Why,'' tip' amazed barber exclaimed, "Rev.

Winning the Widow. "Oli, what a handsome man!" cried Mrs. Hunter; "and such a charming foreign accent, too." Mm. Hunter was a widow—rich, childless, fair and thirty-five—and she Wttde the remark above recorded to Mr. Bunting, bachelor, who had come to pay an afternoon call, apropos of the de parture of Prof. La Fontaine, who had, according to the etiquette, taken his departure on the arrival of Mr. Bunting. "Don't like to contradict a lady," said Mr. Bunting, "but I can't say I agree with you; and these foreigners are gen ■erally imposters, too." Mrs. Hunter shook her head coquet ishly. She was rather eoquetish and rather gushing for her age. "Oh, you gentlemen! you gentlemen!" she said, "I can't see that you ever do justice to each other." And then she rang the bell and or dered the servants to bring tea, and pressed bachelor Bunting to stay and partake of it. There was a maiden aunt of eighty in the house, to play propriety, and allow her the privilege of having as many bachelors ...

"Habit" is a thing to overcome. If you take oil'the first letter it docs not change "a bit." If you take off an other, you still have* a "bit" left. If you take off still another, the whole of "it" remains. If you take off another it is not "t" totally used up. All of which goes to show that, if you wish to be rid of a "habit," you must throw it off altogether. Ashland. —The fire which occurred at Ashland on the lltii inst. destroyed tlit main business portion of the city.

Training Trick Horses, What • Tfiliw Bays About It—The Diff erence mood Haltee la the Intelligence •f Horace. Before New York is out of bed, the circus ring at Gilmore's Gardens is in a lively state of agitation. Stallions, straight-limbed and fiery eyed, make the sawdust fly in their rapid evolutions around the course.

He is breaking a stud of horses, and to the handsome and valuable horses that day and night delight hundreds of young children and children of larger growth. A reporter visited the ring yesterday morning.

VANCOtJ VE K 1N DEPE N DEM T. THURSDAY, APRIL 10. 1879. The Southern planters are being verv much astonished by a sudden •migration movement of the blacks into Northern and Western states. The negro laborers and their families are emigrating by hundreds and thousands, and already the planters experience a great scarcity of labor ing men. This is the legitimate re sult of the policy of bulldozing the nigger and depriving him of his politi cal rights. In a few years if this movement continues the southern fire eaters will be left alone amidst the rank weeds and ruinous desolation of their plantations, a lit punishment for their inhumanity to their laborers. All reports from business centres in the eastern states concur in the view that business in nearly all lines it very decidedly reviving, and that a laj-ger spring trade than usual is fairlv begun. It may be said that improvement of business is positive and promises to be permanent. Pur chases in eastern markets for the west ern tra...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 1ST!). The greenback party in Congress, of which great things were expected, exhibited its usual wisdom in per mitting itself to be ''swallowed with out greasing" bv the Democratic party. The New York Tribune of April 7 very properly illustrates the situation, and says "that by the course which they have adopted in voting with the Democrats, the greenbaek ers have virtually disbanded, and as political managers the) - have made themselves a laughing-stock of both parties." Another special says "the greenback party in the house is in a bad way. It has sold out to the de mocracy, and has been cheated out of the price which it expected to re ceive. Another caucus will now probably be held for the purpose of determining what course shall be pursued in the future. Many mem bers are indignant at what they call the perfidy of the Democrats." A small band of Indians, who a few davs since killed and scalped Private Leo Hader, of the 'id cavalry, and ...
