Interesting Ecclesiastical Trial In Mon-
The case of the widow Gulbord against
the cure and church wardens of the Roman
Catholic parish church of Montreal, being
a suit brought to compel the ecclesiastical
authorities to give the remains of her hus-
band burial in the Roman Cathollo ceme-
tery, has attracted great attention on both
sides of the Atlantic, and has importance
as a precedent defining the power of the
civil authorities in Canada in their rela-
tions with the Church.
In November, 1889, a printer named
Guibord died in Montreal, and bis widow
made application to the cure of the parish
of Notre Dame to have his remains inter
red in the Roman Catholic Cemetenr of la
Cote de Neiges. Guibord was a Roman
Catholic, but he belonged to a literary so-
ciety called the Canadian Institute, which
was under the ban of the Church because
its library and reading-room contained
books and newspapers condemned by the
olergy. Under these circumstances the
cure wrote for instructions to the Vicar-
General, who' represented the Bishop in
the absence of the latter, and received a re-
ply In which it was said that there was an
order from the Bishop to refuse absolution
to those who belonged to the Canadian In-
stitute unless they renounced their mem-
bership, and that after such instructions he
could not permit the ecclesiastical burial
The Cemesery ot la Cote de Neiges con<
sists of two parts, the one known as con-
secrated ground and the other as ''the pot-
ter's field," the latter being used as the
burial place for suicides ana other uncon-
fessed sinners. The cure was willing to
accord the body of Guibord a resting-place
in the potter's-field, but not in consecrated
ground. The widow refused to agree to
this, and finding a temporary place for her
husband's remains in a Protestant ceme-
tery, she brought suit, as already said, to
compel the church authorities to bury the
body in consecrated ground. Her cause
was espoused by eminent counsel, Mr.
orange*, nuts. After this poetical repast.
Miss Kellogg played on the banjo, and
sang "The Yellow Girl Dressed In Blue."
As this is the best time of the year for
planting the roots of the beautifQl white

four roots planted in a half barrel, in which
Mack loam, woll rotted manure, and a
covering of water have been placed, will
grow In the cellar during the winter, if
properly re-watered, and be ready for
transplantation to any place of shallow
water In the spring.

A breach of promise oase In Canaan,

plaintiff is a gentleman whose head has

and upon the cheek of the defendant the

bloomed tind laded. She owned a snug
little farm, whloh he has tilled for her sev-
eral years, but lately It was advertised and
sold at auction. Then was revealed the
fact that he would and she wouldn't, and
the strong hand of the law came down
with the action, stopping the transfer of
the form till the case should be decided.

' The proceedings adopted on behalf of
the widow consisted in an application for a
writ of mandamus ordering the burial of
Guibord's remains. Seventeen days were
occupied in argument , which were heard
by Mr. Justice Mondelet, since Judge of
the Supreme Court for Lower Canada. It
was contended on the part of the Church
authorities that by the terms of the cession
of Canada to Great Britain it was stipu-
lated that the worship of the Catholic re-
ligion, according to the rites of Rome,
should always remain free without inter-
ference from any source, and without con-
trol from either civil or military authori-
ties. On the other hand, It was contended
that the right to an ecclesiastical burial
was a civil right which the church author-
ities could not deny.
Judge Mondelet, after hearing the ar-
guments, delivered an elaborate opinion
sustaining the views advanced by the
counsel lor the applicant, and quoted
various cases bearing on the powers of the
clergy as precedents In support of his
opinion. He likewise quoted an opinion
of Sir George Cartier to show that the
cure of the parish of Notre Dame could be
constrained by Judgment of the courts to
solemnize baptisms, marriages, and buri-
als In which his parishioners were con-
cerned, and to make the necessary entries
in the parish register. The Judge also
decided that the Instructions of his eccle-
siastical superiors afforded the cure no
valid defense for his refusal to give the re-
mains of Guibord an ecclesiastical burial;
and, finally, he ordered a peremptory writ
of mandamus to issue, commanding the
cure and church wardens to bury the de-
ceased within six days, and to report the
execution of the writ.
From this decision the church appealed
and the case was taken to the Court oi
Review, consisting of Judges Berthelot,
McKay and Torrance, who -reversed the
decision of Judge Mondelet and dismissed
the application upon the technical ground
that the action should have been brought
against the cure personally, and because
the writ was informal. An appeal to the

Court of Queen's Bench was then taken

Important case was one of curious inter-
est. At the opening of the December
term (1870) of tne oourt to which the case
had been appealed, Counsellor Doutre
challenged tne four Roman Catholic
judges as being disqualified on the ground
that they belonged to the Church ofRoine,
which had, by the syllabus of 1884, pro-
mulgated various dogmas, among which
were the following: That the ecclesias-
tical authority was exercised independ-
ently of any permission or consent of the
civil government; that the State, even
when it is governed by a Protestant sov-
ereign, possesses no authority, even
indirectly, over matters of religion;
that in matters of conflict between
the State and the ecclesiastical authority
the latter prevails In preference to the
State; and that the Immunity of the
Roman Church and of ecclesiastical
persons has no origin in the civil law.
When the last day of the term arrived
the five Judges—four Roman Catholics
and one Protestant—concurred In a judg-
ment declaring the petitions inadmissible
inasmuch as the charges contained in
them amounted to accusations against the
Judges of treason and perjury, whereupon
Mr. Doutre moved for an appeal to her
"" ' ;y's Privy Council.
whole matter was finally carried to
that tribunal, and the tesult has already
been given in our columns. Guibord was
declared entitled to ecclesiastical rights,
and burial was ordered In consecrated
ground. This decision created much ex-
cltemen-when it reached Montreal. Far
ther Rousselot, the cure of the Parish of
ted ground In the principal cemetery, and
that he would go to priBon rather than
bury them in consecrated ground. What
the result will be remains to be seen; but
the decision can hardly fell to intensify
the unhappy feeling of animosity already
existing between Roman Catholics and
Protestants In the Dominion.
IN the Lady Washington miue, near
Virginia City, a blast was arranged and
thenise lighted. Two miners got Into the
bucket to be hoisted two hundred feet up
the shaft, the fuse being long enough to
give ample time under ordinary circum-
stances. In this lnstanoe, however, the
ascent was delayed by some disarrange-
ment of the machinery, and the men were
suspended In awflil danger with no means
of averting it. They laid themselves In
the bottom of the bucket and awaited in
terror of the explosion, "It seemed like
an hour," said one of them, but It was
reolly five minutes. When the blast did
explode, the bucket was lifted several feet
by the rush of air, and as It fell back with
a violent shock, a shower of shattered
rook rained on the cowering miners.
They were hauled up at length Inseusible
with cut* and bruise*, but they "will re-

for soda biscuits, only adding a little more
lard to make It shorter. Take a bit of
dough out on the knrading-board and after
kneading roll this as for pie-crust. Then
cut in pieces long enough to cover an ap-

n 2 of your apple halves, sweeten accord-
ing to taste, and cover apple and sugar
with dough. Lay the dumplings in your

On account ot the popularity oí the
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machines, par-
ties have been largely engaged in pur-
chasing old and secondhand machines of "
that make, and imposed upon the public
by selling them as new machines. The
Wheeler & Wilson Company begs to ad-
vise the public that any one desiring to
buy their second-hand maahines can be
supplied by that Company direct, on bet-
ter terms than others can afford them,
and be assured of what they are buying.

Hi. &. Walker's California Yln-
egar Hitters are a piiruiy Vegetable
preparation, made chiefly from the na-
tive herbs found en the, lower ranges of
the Sierra Nevada mountains of Califor-
nia, the medicinal properties of which
are extracted therofrom without tho use
of Albohol. Tlie question is almost
daily asked, "What is the cause of the
unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit-
rEiist" Our answer s, that they remove
the cause of dlsejise^ and tlie patient re-
covers bis health. They are the great
Mood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Renovator and Invigorator
of the system. Never before in the
'uistory of the world haa a medicino beca
compounded possessing the remarkable
qualities of Vinkoab Bitters in healins the
t.ck of every disease man is heir to. They
are a gentle Purgative as well as a Tonic,
relieving Congestion or Inflammation of
the Liver and Viscei
The properties of Dr. Walker's
Vikeoar bittkrs are Aperient, Diaphoretic,
Carminative, Nutritious, Laxative, Diaretio
Sedative, Counter-irritant, Sudori&i, Altera,

stroyed by mineral poison or other
means, and vital organs wasted beyond

mittent 1 evers, which are so preva-

those of the Mifissippi, Ohio, Missouri,
Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan-
sas, Red, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande,
Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro-
anoke, James, and many others, with
their vast tributaries, throughout our
entire country during the Summer and
Autumn, and remarkably so during sea-
sons of unusual heat and dryness, are
invariably accompanied by extensive de-
rangements of the stomach and liver,.
and other aoaominal viscera. In their
treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow-
erful influence upon these various or-
gans, is essentially necessary. There
is no cathartic for the purpose equal to
Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters,
as they will speedily remove the dark-
•jolored viscid matter with which the
bowels are loaded, at the same time
stimulating the secretions of the liver,
and generally restoring the healthy
functions of the digestive organs.
Fortify the body against disease
by purifying all its fluids with Vinegar
Bitters. No epidemic can take hoij
of a system thus fore-armed.

In these, as in ail other constitutional Dis-
eases, "Walkbr's Vinboar Bittkrs have
shown their great curative powers in the
most obstinate and intractable eases.
For Inflammatory and Chronic
Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit-
tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of
the Blood, Liver, Eidneys and Bladder,
these Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases
are caused by Vitiated Blood.
Mechanical Diseases.—Persons en-
caged in Paints and Minerals, such as
. lumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and
Miners, us they advance in life, are subject
to paralysis of the Bowels. To guard
against this, take a dose ef Walkkr's Vin-
egar Bitters occasionally.
For Skin Diseases, Eruptions, Tet-
ter, Salt-Kheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples,
Pustules, Boils, CaVbuncles, King-worms,
Scald-bead, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch,
Scurfs, Discolorations of the Skin, Bumors
and Diseases of the Skin of whatever name
or natnre, are literally dug up and carried
ont of the'syBtem in a short time by the use
of these Bitters.
Pin, Tape, and other Worms,
lurking in the system of so many thousands,
are eflectually destroyed and remoVed. No
svstem of medicine, no vermifuges, no an-
thelminitics will free the .ystem from worms
like these Bitters.
For Female Complaints, in young
or old, married or single, at the dawn of wo-
manhood, or the turn of life, these Tonic
Bittern display so decided an influence that
improvement is soon pereeptible.
Cleanse the Vitiated Blood when-
ever yon find its impurities bursting through
the skjn in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sores;
cleanse it when you find it obstructed and
sluggish in the veins; cleanse it when it is
fool; your feelings will tell you when. Keep
the blood pure, and the health of the system
