Union Flashes
The Topic went below lo Vancouver
with a cargo of coal for the C. P. K.
The Glory of the Seas is at Union
Wharf,
The Detroit is in the Dry Dock at Esquimalt, but will be up this week,
On Saturday the Mineola and thc
Keewanaw both arrived at Union wharf.
Mr. Frank Parks and family, formerly
ofthe International, Nanaimo, have taken rooms in the Grant block.
The Tepic was in agaiu on Monday
for a cargo of coal for the C. P. R. and
the Vancouver Sugar Refinery.
The social dance at the Cumberland
Hotel, although no invitations were sent
out, was well attended and is spoken of
as a most enjoyable affair.
From Hornby Island, we noticed the
genial f.ice of the Postmaster Geo.
Ford, and also Miss Nellie Wilson, thc
new teacher of that "sea girt isle."
The Thursday trips of the Joan between Nanaimo and Union Wharf and
Comox will be discontinued. Commen-
ing with September she will run once a
month to Valdez.
Mrs. John Reyh of Vancouuer was up
last Thursday and rented the store of the
new building of Messrs Adderton & Row
botham. He will open up with a stock
of boots and shoes about the middle of
the month, He will make and repair be
ing a practical workman.
A tram of 16 cars made a run from
Union to the wharf���13 miles in 19 minutes. This is good speed and shows
that the track is in good repair; but then
it is in charge of an old C. P. R. boy���
J. Harwood.
Mrs. Llewellyn and tier daughter have
been up looking over the situation and
finding the outlook so promising, have
rented the vacant store in the lately erected Williams Block where Mrs. Llewellyn
will open about the 20th inst, with millinery, dry goods apd notions. She is
from Whntcomb, Wash.
Sept. 1 Mr. David Jones retired as
telegraph operator at Union and was
succeeded by Mr. Thom.15 Home,of Na
namin, popularly known as Tommy.
Mr. Jones has been here for about a year
and has made many friends by his uniform urbanity. We trust he may continue in our midst. His successor is "'an
old hand at the bellows," having had six
years experience.
Simon Leber was up Wednesday and
Thursday last. He is business all over
and we have never seen him
"Where tho brook and river meet"
fishing, or on the mountain heights pursuing thc in -untain goat, but when it
comes to business he is there every lime.
Wheu we looked into his store we fflund
they were pushing sales in ladies' and
childreiis1 clothing. And goods seemed
way up but thc prices were way down. I
found an importation of 16 ores of dry
goods direct from England. And this in
a mining camp! Ah! but its the best
camp in the Province; and with its splen
did agricultural and timber backing, it is
as much more than a,camp as��� well,���a
good deal more, and to spare.
There was quite an influx of visitors-
came up on the City of Nanaimo, Friday evening and went bark on Sunday.
There was Jas. Rumsay, representing,
Rumsay Bros., confectioners; Gerald H.
Cross, grain commission agent, representing principally J. H. Todd & Son,
Victoria; John Prentice, representing F.
R. Stewart, Vancouver; A. O. Campbell,
representing Campbell & Anderson,
hardware, New Westminster, and Geo.
G. Curne, the brilliant correspondent and
attache ofthe Vancouver World. Thev
came over from the Bay in one of Smith
& McKenzie*1 rigs, and were guests at
the Waverly House They were a gentlemanly, enterprising, go-ahead set; but
were not a little disappointed in finding
some of the leading men absent on the
excursion. This attraction had carried
off Mr, James McKim and his junior
partner Mr. Ed. McKim, Mr. Robert
Grant of the mill, and Mr, Alex. Grant
ofMcLary stove fame, and in fact so
many that the usually lively streets looked deserted.
CARD OF THANKS.

began a tour of ioapeetion. Pint I sized
up the cr wd. They were nothing to Mow
about; anritndew*, I wu almoet aihwd
Co be ku in it Hearing that dinner wu
ready I tumbled below, being u 1 happened
to have my appetite along with me, and believe me when I tell you I needed it. 1
made good aee of it I ww a gang going
into another room, and of ooune I followed
There wu a flaw dinner Mt Nt I thought
it wu a Fourth of July treat and did my
beet to olean my plate, when, ob, horror!

had eaten a heavy dinner ia the iteerage.
and followed down her* when 1 hadn't got
���oouldn't eat���20 oente worth. Then wu
ao help for it, ao I gave up a quarter, and
going up on deok proceeded tu point ont
the different landmarketo a kid who bed
never been on this journey before. I failed
to tell him that I hadn't either. The kid
turned out to be quite a musician, pitying
the gaiter, fiddle, banjo, birmonioon, ao-
cordeon, etc. almoet u well, but not quite,
u I oonld tbe fool. In ful be wonld mako
almoet any imtrument be got hii ting-ire on
speak right out in tnuaioal numbers. We,
therefore, organised a band. The kid took
a guitar. A sailer bad my aooordeon. The
hatcher got a banjo, and I prooeeded
to do the mouth ut on my harmonies. Ai
they didn't appear to appreciate my moiioal
abilitce, I watched my opportunity to turn
the scales; so when they played "The Camp
belli are coming" I joined witb, "We'll
paint the town nd." Then a fender came
in eollirion with my craninm, and I went on
a strike. Shortly after thii a little girl
���ang, "The ehip that never returned," and
I happened to paw a euual remark whioh
wu not welt received concluded to decamp.
Well, all went along in the usual way until one evening when we were well ont in
the Pacific and the long swell reminded me
of the unuiinees I need to feel after eating
green apple*. Being uneasy I unntered a-
round and wound up by coming into the
ladiea cabin where a very plain blonde riv-
ited her large uuoer ehaped eyee on me
and kept them there. I of course Btarted a
liv-ily conversation with ber and every one
within hearing. Thia rather ataggered tlie
uilor tough and a couple of bit onuma when
we formed what may be called a jawing
match. It wu pretty hard for mi to jaw
tbe three of th-im, but I kept at it until my
jaw wu tired, and I guess tbe othtra were
also. Finely the sailor tough walked out
thoroughly pai-eJiied, while I unntered to
and fro master of the field. As it wu get-
ting late 1 aoon went in quest of a bunk,
which 1 got after aome trouble, end turned
in intending to have a good night'a rut I
gueee I muit have alept about thru hours
when I wu suddenly awakened by a ripping, tearing noiae with the feeling that X
wu being whirled into apace. Ialaooanght
sight of a man along between the row of
bunka, but he toon disappeared and ao did
I. Iwu thrown agaiut the chap below
but partially uved myaelf by catching my*
���elf at the canvu of my own bunk; when I
found that the bottom canvu of my bunk
aid been out by eome one wbo wu looking
for trouble. I hustled around, looking for
rope aod made aueh a noise that I awoke
half tbe boyi, ao of oouras then wu lota of
kicking, but I didn't care. I found a coil
of bail rope, cut off about 20 feet and tied
up my hunk and wu aoon wund aaleep. I
had my opinion of who cut it but didn't aay
anything, I blamed the tailor Tough,
The next moraine the Dutch flonkie
wu going to pummel me fnr tearing the
bunk but u he wu only about S feet tell at
moat be concluded to keep hia flannel on.
It wu Sunday. I mined thi church agood
deal. I had no book*-, but Moody and Sen-
keya'a work and I eomehow forgot all a-
bout that, but the dinner I did not forget a-
bout. Tha ladiea bad plum doff, and on
our tablo wu diab water soup, and aa ancient logging camp rout; or wu it a bro*-
kin down expreaa horae bake* Well the
ladiea table wu right off the end of oure
Jut before tbe bell rang one of our boyi
ineaked over and collared a plum duff
Thinking hia example a good one I followed
it but did not atop at thn plum duff bat helped
myaelf liberally to whatever I wanted.
When thi (unkiea arrived with thi diab*
water aoup and anapiciona bake I wu pretty well ontaide of the plum doff etc. but
my exemplar's pooketa bulged terribly.
The ladiea didn't uem to notico or care for
their lou, bnt my atomach got a terribli
strain and-ixouu me; I don't want anymore plum duff, Wi hid aome good mu*
lie to ceuaole me, and for a change, uilor
Tough and myaelf commenced another jaw.
I fancied I got a little thi beat of it; at any
nta tbe hearer* did. One ot tbem ailed
mi obi aide and told me that if I would
put a atop to tbat fellow's chinning the oth-
in would we fair ply. 80 that afternoon
when hii jaw oommenoed to grind out ita
muaio I waan't alow in joining in. At one
point he thought I bad gone a little too far
and gave ml a ringing alap on tin aide of
hud and  tumid away  witb a   laugh.

Milk Formation.
Much discussion of late liaa been devoted
tu lhe influence which the fojil given to
dairy cowa has over Lhe milk. That the
quality and quantity of the milk produced
by a 'cow ia largely dependent upou tlie
amount and kiuds of food given there fa
little doubt, how much the proportionate
amount of butter fat in the milk ia affected
ia atill a matter of doubt. A careful analysts
of that white opaque fluid ao familiar to
all, called milk, ahowa that it derives iu
whiteness aud opacity from the presence ol
nuumberable globules of very minute size
floating in a watery-like fluid or serum,
These globules compose the butter fats
they are the morphological portion of the
milk. The fluid iu which these float Is
composed of casein, sugar of milk and
various aalts io aolution. Our general con
elusion reapecting milk muat be, according
tu minute observations, that il is a physiological product possessing a morphological
element whioh gives us those nuaUttll >������"���
peculiarities whioh render it ho agreeattli
aud essential to civilized man, that the
-.ecofi-nilion of this morphological eleinuul
and ita various cliangus ia the key to much
that m difficult to understand in practical
dairying; that through ita atudy tlie dairy
mau can improve his product by u justdis
uriiniualion, and tlie breeder can breed for
certain with the same certainty of accom
plishiug hia desires as the grazier haa iu
breeding to external form.
Iiy means of a microscopic atudy of milk,
the experienced worker can judge of the
butler value ofa milk, andean quickly
t-uparate from a herd those cowa which
produce an unprofitable milk for the butter
manufacturer. He can alao sepaiate those
milks which are the leaat valuable to the
cheeae maker from thoao which are the
mosl valuable. He can alao tell to a certain
extent what fooda will make his milk best
for hia purpose. It will be understood that
other questions whioh may influence this
decision may be considered apart from the
information derived from the microscope,
as that of breeds, the effect of the preparatory method pursued with the cream, any
especial oi.d sudden change of food, disease,
etc. Yet for a aimilar breed under timilar
circumstances, tho microscope will give a
definite answer iu definite terms, and
it. canuot lie misunderstand except
through ignorance or a wilful negligence ol thought. Water is the product
evidently of a trausudalive process, and accordingly the prcBeticc of waler has little
influence on tho total amount of butter
yet it can change the percentage equivalent
of tlio butter element in the milk. The
huttor of the milk cau also be increased
I'u.li usu theoretical and practical fact hy
the presence of material in the blood upou
which thc cells of the milk gltuds can exercise a selectivo or structural action, aud
thus iulluencu their owu growth. The
obtaining of this composition of the blood
or lhe nutritive process is aided by ihc
chemical composition of lhe food. The
lend must nut only ht of a nature audi as
we call digestible, but the presence of
tain saline constituents 1ms a large effect in
promoting digestion, absorption, usiimila-
lu.n, ult;., in truth these constituents are
the chief, if not the only media for the
transference of trgunic mailer from pli
to place in lhe animal body.
Excessive Fat.
it has not heen very long since it was
considered not only desirable, bui most
ptolilablu, to make the hog ils fut us poasible before marketing. This in many cases
���cd to the lei-tiim- of hogs for excessive
weights, hut this, iu a measure at loast, has
been chan-jed, and the carcass must contain
A better proportion of lean. Excessive fal
either in a hog, a beef or a mutton, is a
detriment rather than a benefit. A medium
animal, younjz, vigorous and thrifty,
marketed when matured, of a medium
weight, will bring a higher price per pouud
than a larger, older or fatter animal.
'J he feoding must be done in a way that
will secure a vigorous, thrifty growth from
the start, giving a ration that will secure
a good growth und development of bone aud
muscle, keeping in such a oondition that
only a short feed on agood fattening ration
will be all that is necessary to properly fit
for market. In addition to the belter price
it is possible to receive for this class of
animals is the fact that there is a loas risk of
loss. All oxcessively fat animal of auy kind
is genurally an unhealthy one.
With ail classes of stock up to a certain
stage a rapid nam can he realized. After
that lhe gain is much slower iu proportion
to the amount of food supplied, it requires
goo i judgment on the part of the feeder to
determine when thiB stage has lieen reaohed
and when it is best to sell. < ieneially with
hogs uu aveiage of '2D.I pounds will give
-in-ni and a bolter profit than a larger
weight. Under what may he considered
reasonably fair conditions of feeding this
weight can be secured when they are eight
months old, Wilh cattle from I,-Mil to
1,000 pounds weight, secured by thc time
the cattle ure not more than thirty moil till
ohl, will return abettor profit than to keep
until they are pusl three years old uud per
hips four, and secure u larger weight.
T-iure Is something in the breed, but more
iu tne feed and management in securing a
fair distribution of loan in counectiou with
tbe ful. When un animal haa boen kept in
whal may he considered a poor condition
during growth, uml ia then fattened, the
(at will not l>c evenly distributed through
the meat, but thero will he an excess in
bome portions and a deficiency iu others.
A good animal, fed so as to anouro a vigor1
ous, thrifty growth, and un curly maturity,
is essentia! to a good quulity of meat.
Damming- the Irish Channel.
A Stupendous schema has recently heen
seriously sugt/csted tor the utilization iu
Unt iili wutors of the energy ef uceau cur
routs for the purpose of distribution of
power ami light by means of electrioily to
centres oi population at a distance of hundreds ot miles from tho source. This ii
nothing less thuu tbe proposition to dam
the Irish Channel at tho Mull of (.'untire,
wiiero the distance between the Scotch and
Irish shores is only fifteen miles, and where
the energy of the current from the north fa.
so far as human requirements go, infinite--
thai is, would havo to bo expressed in
������cores of millions of horse-power,
Thut this proposition is being regard*
with some degree of seriousness may bo

THE ISLAND OF ST. HELENA.      '

Au achievement which the world hailed
as one of tbe crowning triumphs of this
century brought poverty aud distress to a
famous and once prosperous little island.
I'iie five thousand people of Si. Helena
uever dreamed, in the days when most of
the shipping that rounded the<!apeol t!oo I
llope invariably called at their thriving
port, that the wharves of Jamestown would
become grass-grown aud ita shop* would
dose for lack of tr��vle. The year round
an average of four vessels a day had dropped into port to replenish their supplies of
freah provisions and water. St. Helena
waa the great refreshment Btatlou on the
ocean highway of tiie Mouth Atlantic.
Kurope had utilized il aa the prison of her
greitoi-t enemy. The world looked upon
it as a blessing lo the aeafarer and a convenience to trade ; and the natives thought
the sun of prosperity would never let upon
their litllo volcauio rook. Rut it did aet on
lhe day that the Kmpress Kugenie opened
the Suez Canal. Jamestown haa never
been herself aince that day. Where were
the buyers of ship's stoios and garden stuff
who were wont to make the long, narrow
ravine in which tho town is built, a scene
of busy traffic? Where were the liidiumeii,
and tlie ships ot America, Spain, and the
Netherlands? Few of them havo aoon St,
Helena since the new route to the Orient
was opened. The number of voaiels calling at the island has steadily dwindled,
and Jumestowu sees only oue foreign ship
to*day for every aix that used to sail into
her harbor.
Al lasl a ory of distress hai arisen, and
the liritish public are answering the appeal
for aid. The island is only a apeck In the
ocean, far removed from most of the interests of the world, Ita people knew not
whut to do when the means of subsistence
ou which thuy had confidently relied proved
elusive ami linally deserted them entirely.
Soon tiie population began to decrease.
Many of the able-liodied men went to the
Cape of tiood Hope to seek oil ploy ment. In
spite of every elfort, however, the condition
of the islanders has gone from bad to worse.
In August, two years ago, the distress became so great that the pant's of hunger had
begun to be felt when a British man-of-war
opportunely arrived and relieved the moat
pressing necessity. The problem now is
not merely to extend temporary relief, but
to provide tho natives with the means and
training required to make them self-sustaining. The islandera have tried to develop
their fisheries, but havo failed, owing to
their inexperience. But fish abound in their
waters, and it is believed that the fidi-
L-iiriuj-f industry may be made an adequate
means of livelihood. The "St. Helena Helief
Fund" has been opened fn London for
the purpose of raising about 815,000, with
which to buy a number of suitable boats
with nets anil gear, to enj-aae for a time
the services of experienced fish enters, and
to establish a school for the training of the
islanders in this industry. The Government
has donated the uae ot certain public
building** iu Ht. Helena for thia purpose.
This is not the first time that a handful of
poople, in some isolated corner of the
world, have needed succor, and, we believe,
they have never appealed in vain. The
few hundred residents on the island of
Tristan da Cunha found themselves in sore
straits after the decline ofthe Antarctic
whaliii-.' and scaling industry, and two
years ago, the natives of Watling's Island,
where Columbus lirst set foot on American
soil, asked for aid to buy a small vessel to
carry their product- to market. These little
communities have not the advantage of the
great variety of resource! usually open to
industrious men, and it is fitting, if need
he, that the great world outside their narrow sphere ahould help them to ways of
better helping themselves,

The Department of Agriculture has juat
issued Bulletin No. 2o, of the Central Experimental   Farm,   Ottawa,  dealing with
tuberculosis.   It begins  by   slating that
tuberculosis in cattle anil consumption  in
the human family are one and   the same
thing.   It is a diaeaae entirely distinct from
pi euro-pneumonia,    aud   occurs in   cattle
wherever lhey are kept tu domestication.
All animals, even *to fowls, are more or less
subject to it.
It haa loin; been known that tubercle
contained virus or poison which if injected
iuto the tissues of animala was capable of
producing t uberculoBis, hut the exact nature
of this material waa unknown uutil \AH2,
when 1'rofessor Koohof Germany announced
his discovery of tho germ of tuberculosis,
a bacillus known as bacillus tuberculoma,
whioh is now admitted by all soieutitic investigators to be the sole cause of this
disease, This germ in a vegetable parasitic
mioro-orgaiiisin which, undent high magnifying powor, appears us a line rod, often
slightly bent or curved, about one-teulh as
broad as lung, and measuring about one
seven thousandth of an inch iulength. When
thia bacillus finds lodgment in au animal
under favorable conditions it multiplies
with great rapidity. Within this minute
organism small oval spores are formed
which are fast liberated and develop i"t���
mature forms like tlm pared. As a result
of the multiplication of these bacilli lit
auy of the internal organs small nodular bodies are formed called tjbercles
These iu their curly Btagea are about
the si/e of a millet seed, but soon increase
iu number and size, and uniting form larger
diseased masses. As theso grow older a
process af suppuratiou takes place, the
tubercle becomes yellow, gradually softens
and forma a cheesy mass. Thia mass oi
cheese-like consistence may soften still
more and become of the consistency of
cream, or from the deposition of time salts
in it, the moss may become quite hard.
When present in any quantity in the interior of auch organs as the lung or liver,
tubercle is moat frequently soft, or tluEd,
forming what is known aa a tubercular
abscess, but whore the diaoase a fleets the
aurface of an organ, or attacks a membrane the growth is usually harder and
nodular.
Those tubercles or portions of tubercle
near the surface of a diseased area contain
the largest number of active bacilli and
these are thus in a favorable position to
invade the surrounding healthy tissue, or
to be carried by the circulation to other
parts of the body and begin thoro the formation of further tuberculous musses.
MODES OK ATTACK.
The bacillus of tuberculosis may enter
the body and bring on this disease of the
animal by being taken with lhe air into
the lungs, by being swallowed with food
and thus introduced into the digestive
system, or in rare cases by the accidental
application of disease germs to cuts,
wounds nr other excoriated surfaces.
Once introduced into lhe system the disease may become general or may only develop locally, by attacking a .single organ.
In aome instances its action is very rapid
producing what ia knowu as "galloping
consumption." In cattle the lungs, the
glands iu the thorax, the pleura and the
airius membrance which cavers the walls
of the thorax and abdomen, are the parts
most usually affected by the disease. The
glands in the cheat, behind the lungs, are
very commonly diseased and often muoh
enlarged.
The tubercle bacillus is contained in very
large numbers in the matter expectorated
by individuals su tiering from thia disease,
alao by cows who are aaid to discharge this
material through ihe uusal organs, nnd
these bacilli remain actively virulent for a
very long time. Experiments have been
tried by drying such i*jp*ctorated matter
for many months, and ulso by alternately
wetting an 1 drying the material; the bacilli
have also been exposed for a considerable
time to cold, as low as IS degrees of frosl
and to temperatures as high as 108��F. without affecting their vitality. When animals
have been inoculated with material ao
treated, tho bacilli have shown unimpaired
vigor, uud have rapidly brought about
diseased conditions. It js evident then that
such discharges wheu allowed to dry, or in
the stalls or sheds of animals suffering from
the disease, become a source of danger to
all about them, both men aud auiinalB
No reliable remedy has yet boen discovered for this disease, and tlie only way
known of freoing a herd of cattle from it is
by the prompt destruction of all atfocted
animals. From the absence of outward
symptoms the detection of tuberculosis in
its early stages by the ordinary methoda of
examination is very difficult, and in many
cases practically impossible, and by the
time the disease has progressed far enough
to he readily detected there is danger that
the affected animal has already conveyed
it. to others. A cow attacked by tuberculosis may die in a few weeki, or may livo
for many months, and sometimes for sever*
al yean. The percentage of milking animala affected is usually greatest in tlie
neighborhood of cities where they are
housed for the greater part of the year.
Hence tho importance of sanitary measures
auoh as proper ventilation, pure water sup
ply, adequate disinfection of stalls whore
tuueruulous animals have been kept, and
prompt isolation cf all suspected caaea,
TIIE DIAGNOSIS OP THIS  UIHK.SK,

most Impossible, a more trustworthy method
haa been sought, and found in Koch lymph
or tuberculin. This is prepare.i fay first
making an artificial culture of the disease
germ known as the bacillus of tuberculosis
and allowing it to stand until the material
has become highly charged with the bacilli.
A proportion of glycerine is added with a
little carbolic acid. It is then filtered
through porous porcelain to separate the
germs and the filtered fluid raised to a tern*
poraturo high enough to destroy any remaining germs which may be in the fluid,
70 degrees Centigrade equal to 158 o of
Fahrenheit is about the temperature used
for this purpose. An exposure of ten minutes to such heat is said to destroy all
traces of vitality in theso germs. The
sterilized fluid is next evaporated at a low
temperature ir. a vacuum until it is sufficiently concentrated when it is put up in
small bottles each containing tive cubic
centimeters equal to about 80 minims, anil
usually sold in New York at ubout $10

MiS
limattt It ha-i, uevertheleas, beeu loug
known that tuberculosis exists to a certain
extent in diiierent parts of Canada among
cattle kept tha greater part of the year in
confimnent, or when closely bred. Prior
to 1888 the subject was much discussed,
and during the session of thi House of
Commons in that year a Bub-committee was
appointed tor the purpose of considering
the question of certain contagious diseases
in cattle and their communicability toman
aud animals with special reference to tuberculosis.
The committee presented a report to tbe
House in April, 1889, in whioh much useful
information is given regarding thii diaeaae
and tbe means by whioh it ia spread. After |
a careful consideration of all the evidence
which the committee had obtained from
physicians and veterinary surgeons in
different parts of the Dominion, the members
expressed the opinion that the disease known
aa tuberculosis then existed among cattle
in Canada to a muoh greater extent than
waB generally recognized. In thia report
reference waa made to the contagious
character of tho disease, that it waa el* ays
due solely to the presence of the tubercle
bacilli, and to the faot of ita beiug communicable from animals to man. The committee
also recommended that the milk obtained
from all suspected animals should be boiled
before using, and that the meat where used
ahould be thoroughly oookod ao as to dea-
troy any bacilli which might be preaent.

MARRIED A CENTURY.
.1* imple In Haa cary Celebrate Their Hun
ilrrilib Wedding Anniversary!
We have all heard of tin weddings,
celebrated after ton years of marriage) of
oryatal weddings after fifteen years) of china
weddings, after twenty; of silver, after
twenty-five* of gold after fifty, aud of
diamond after seventy-five, or, u some
folk celebrate It, after sixty years, Rut
the scale of celebration doea not seem to
ex tend any farther, and one wonders what
firoeious thing would be selected to give
ts name to a wedding recently celebrated
in Hungary���the 100th anniversary of the
marriage of Jean Szathmary and his wife,
Thia appears to be a circumstance which
is entirely impossible. Rut the marriage
of this aged pair is duly and officially
recorded as having taken place in May,
1704, at whioh time, according to the record,
they were of marriageable age. As in
Hungary at that time a bridegroom must
have reached the age of 20 and the bride
that of lS,the pair must now be at leut 190
and 115 years old respectively.
The 100th anniversary wu celebrated at
the town of Zsombolyi, in the town of
Banat, whioh hu, for a long time, allowed
lhe venerable couple a pension in recognition
f their groat age and fidelity to eaoh other.
Even the oldest residents of Zsombolyi
have no other recollection of Jean Szathmary and his wife than as old people.
Not ono relation of either survives. Their
century of wedded life is so well and
officially attested that many notables and
Hungarian officials attended the anniversary celebration and gave them many
presents.

Living With Their Heads Off.
Most perioua of an observing turn of
mind are aware of the fact that there are
several species of insects that will continue
to live without seeming inconvenience for
some timeaf ter decapitation, theexact knowledge of the length of time whioh the various
species ot insects would survive auch
mutilation being somewhat vague.
Prof, Conestrini once undertook a series
of experiments with a view of determining
that aod other facta in rotation to the
wonderful vitality of suoh oreaturns. Io
eaoh oase the head was smoothly removed
with a pair of thin-bladed foroepa, aud
when spontaneous movements of wings and
legs ceased he employed sundry irritating
devices, auch aa pricking, squeezing, aud
btowing tobacco smoke over the insect.
Aa a result of theso experiments he ascertained that members of the beetle family
at onoe showed signs of suffering, while
such u ths ants, bees, wasps etc., remained
for hours unaffected. Some which seemed
atunued from the effects of the operation
lecovered altera time, and continued to
live and enjoy a headless existence for
several days. Butterflies and moths aeemed
but little affected by the guillotining proceaa,
and the common flies (diptera) appeared to
regard the operation aa a huge joke.
"The common house fly," says our experi-
menter, "appeared to be in full possession
of hia aenses (rather paradoxical, when in
all probabilities the canary bad swallowed
head, sense, and Ul) thirty-six hours
afterward."
The bodies of aome species of butterlliee
aurvived as long u eighteen daya after the
head had been removed, but the head itaelf
seldom ahowed signs of life longer than aix
houra alter decapitation. In the general
summary of these huge experiments we are
informed that the lut aigns of life were
manifeated either in the middle or last pair
of legs; and that the myriopods showed
great tenacity of life "and appeared wholly
indifferent to the loss of their heads."

���    Vancouver. THE DEAN AND HIS DAUGHTER
CHAPTER  XXV.
I waa walking dowi the High Street one
day looking In at the ahop windows, rather
thau about me, wheu, for somereason or other,
1 threw my eyee aeroas the road, and saw
approaching me on the other aide of the
way ths Very Reverend the Dean of
Salchester accompanied by do less or other
an eccieaiaatio thau the Very Reverend the
Dean of Southwick, and my eyes met those
of the two.
I made a bow which waa tnoat unmls-
akably directed tothe Dean of Salchester
atone, aud intended to exclude his com*
pauioa, and then quiekeuin." my pace
walked iuto tlie very Krai shop whioh gave
me a chance of retreat, and which, providentially, was a milliner's and ladiea
drapers.
Here I made several small purchases,
loitoriug over them until 1 could see tbat
tbe const wai perfectly clear, aud than I
tallied nut, and, as quickly as 1 oould,
hurried home.
What was 1 to d��! I did nnt want to leave
Salchester if 1 could possibly help it. The
Meadowsweet trouble if I may ao term it,
was most probably doomed lo a natural
death aa soon at it was aeen that Mr,
Meadowsweet aud myself continued friends
ii earliest aud not lit seeming merely.
Rut my father would be cariaiu, out of
mere malice, to tell the story from hii own
poim of view, and wllli his own embellishments, to the Dean aud to everybody else.
Ue would prefer them to the cruelly
misleading reports in the papers, of whioh
1 felt certain tbat hla vanit / had prompted
him to make an album, if only fnr the value
of the sentence iu #hi-di the reporters
dsioribodthe manifest emotion aud positive
anguish with which he had given his evidence, And, when 1 came to recollect it what
a malignant tiaiue of lies that evidence
had lieen, and how craftily framed to
discredit me to the utmost possible extent.
This much I might take (or granted.
Then came the question what would follow,
and here I was fairly puzzled.
For the world, as an old proverb runs, ia
divided into men, women, and priests, and
if the two first are apt at times to puzzle
you, ynu can certainly say Of. ecclesiastics
as a class, that it ia utterly impossible ever
to tell how they wi.l act under any given
set of circumstances, or even whether they
will act at all.
So I went back to my lodgings in a most
unpleasant stale of uncertainly. I waa uot
going to illow myself io lu distressed at the
matter, let it turn out how it might; hut it
would he a distinct affectation to pretend for
a moment that I was not vury bitterly
annoyed.
Early next morning, while I was still
wondering what might happen, I waa, 1
cannot hul confess, astonished to be told
that the Dean himself���not the Dean of
Southwick,but the Doan of Salchester itself
���would be glad lo see mo if I were disengaged. I, of course, replied that I should
be delighted to aee him, and in hs came.
1 have hitherto omitted to describe Dr.
Proper t, and I may perhaps conveniently do
eo at this point. Unlike my father, he had
taken a high University degree, and had
for aome yeara acunl as a Fellow and Tutor
nf his College. In this capacity he had
preached several Uui ersity sermons, which
without being markedly heterodox or mlli-
tantly orthodox, had yet (riven rise to eon-
siderable discussion of a character entirely
favorable to their author.
After this he had beeu invited to preach
what I i-olk've are termed ahow sermons to
fashiouable and critical London oongrega-
tiona, who, like the Athenians fn the days
of Paul, ure always seeking after something
new. This had led to his gracious notice
by a certain most exalted personage,
through whose personal influence he had
beeu elevated to the Deanery of Salchester,
with the entire concurrence not only of the
fashionable world, but of Printiug House
Square, the inspired voice of which pro-
uounoed him to lie, in these daya of doubt
and difficulty, perhaps the very best man
that oould have been selected for the pre-
oiss piece of preferment in question, and
hi<l gone on to draw a moat learned and
interesting parallel between him and Cyril
of Alexandria, and TUlotaon, and Keble,
and a dozen or au of othor eminent ecclesiastics.
Personally, fortune had favored Dr. Pro-
part. He was a man of tine presence, if
uot altogether of handsome features, and
would bave made a capital field oflloer of
Foot Quarda. He was now, to all appear
anoes, just about the wrong side of fifty,
but by very little, and now that lam recalling these details, 1 may as well add that
he had a faultless aeat iu the saddle, and in
many other respects contrasted more than
favorably with the county squires of the
neighborhood.
After a little exchange of sentences about
nothing in particular, the Dean told me,
aa 1 had expected, that he oame to speak
to me as a mai'.tr of duty, upou a very
painful aud difficult eubjeot,
I lud guessed aa much, ami I told him
so,
"That ia why," he continued, I have
taken the perhaps unuaual course of calling
alone, becauso I wish, if you desire it, that
what passes between us should be known
to no one but ourselves, unless you think
fit to make it public on your own account."
"I ahall certainty reapeot your onli-
dence," I answered, " whatever it may be
that you have to aay."
" You are very kind,"he replied "and
I think you will be acting prudently. Of
course ynu saw me yesterday with your
father, who was somewhat surprised at
seeing you here, and from whom I gathered with astonishment, and 1 muat alao
admit not without a considerable amount
of pain, that you had been stopping amongst
us under a name, whioh you possibly acting
under mistaken advice, had been led to
assume with thu view of concealing your
past history.
"Under suoh circumstances I oould have
had but one opinion if you had In any way
misled us by any positive ami direct untruth. But it would be most unfair to
suggest for a moment that you have attempted to do ao. I have heard, more
than once, that you have alwaya spoken of
your past life as having been aad and
sorrowful and havo begged to be excused
from makiug any reference to it, This
shows au honorable intention on your part,
but if there has been no sitr/f-es/io/a/si,there
has certainly been a supprtmo vert, whioh
very nearly approaches to it,
"Vou have, for instance, (not that I put
the poiot as influencing my own judgment,
but as one whioh might very well preaent
itaelf moat unfavorably to the judgment of
others), allowed yourself to publicly partake ot the most (acred ordinances of tho
Church. That you should have done so is
entirely matter for your own conscience. I
do not presume to question your conduct,
or to impute to you for a moment any unworthy motive. lJui other ministers of
the Church might very woll take a different
view, and probably would,
" I am aure you will acquit me," he
went on, "cf any desire to judge harshly
of your conduct, cr to in any way dictate
to you. Rut I cannot help thinking, you
��� will upon reflection agree with myself,
that ii is advisable that you should leave
Salchester. Personally, I ahall be sorry to
Jose you, and I may say the same most
-unreservedly for my wife. But you will,
I oannot bat feel, see that by stopping
here you will place many members of the
Chapter, together with their families, in a
position of the greatest dilliculty and
embarrassment; and thia, as a mere matter
of good feeling, if not indeed of positive
duty, yon ought to do your beat at any
personal sacrifice to avoid."
It is refreshing to meet a gentleman,
even though ho may be bigoted. And 1
doubt, after all, �� bother clergymen are by
any means ao bigoted aa it Is the custom to
represent them. And onoe again I could
not help thinking of my father, and reflect-
ing how meanly and shabbily he had be
haved, not only all through hia pitiful his
lory, but in this last miserable incident in
ita course.
Had there been a spark of manhood in
hia soul ho would have bitten off his tongue
aooner than have uaed it of deliberate malice to drive me out of my little harbor of
refuge.
"You are very kind," I aaid, looking him
frankly in the face, " aud I am very grateful to you for the interest yau have evinced
in me, I think, upon the whole, you are
right, and I promise you, although of course
I am in no way bound to do ao, tbat 1 will
leave Saloheater as soon aa 1 can possibly
make the necessary arrangements. 1 shall
be very aorry to no, and still more aorry to
lose several among you whom I have already
learned to consider as my friends ; but I almost agree with you tint whether up to now
I have been acting rightly or wrongly.thare
is now, at any rate, hut on - ourso open to
me."
"Relieve me, it is so," he answered.
"Obviously I shall keep my own counsel,1
I continued, "as to the causes of my departures ; and in return for tils promise, I have
one favor to ask nf you, aud that is lo let
me now, and here, shortly tell you the true
story of my marriage, and of my divorce,
ami to form your own opinion ou it aa to my
father's ahars in the events it contains."
"You have a dear right to aak that of
me," he answered, but with an air of evident relief at seeing the business end aa he
had wiahed, "It ia my duty, under the
eiruuinstances, to hear and to thoroughly
consider and test anything you may have
to say. "
Would any woman have done otherwise
than I did T I told him the whole story
from beginning to end, leaving out nothing
that told against me, and carefully doing
justice, aa I alwaya have done and alwaya
ahall do in my own mind, to the highly
honorable and dignified manner in which
my huahaud had noted throughout.
I spoke of him without a word of bitterness, I spoke of him in fact as I had
alwaya found him���honorable, and, but for
his foibles ; a man to be admired. Of
George Sabine I also told the truth. Of
my father I alao told the truth, without
concealing any portion of it, aud carefully
avoiding anything that might be construed
into vlndiotivenees. And I then added,
what of courao he knew, that I had come to
Saloheater solely to hide mysolf and to
rest.
"And now,Mr.Dean," Iconoluded,riaing
and offering my hand, " I must seek rest
and a hiding-place elsewhere. I ahall go as
soon aa possible, and I can only hope that I
ahall be as aoon as possible forgotten,"
The Dean was cordial in hia manner, but
evidently relieved at the tarn affairs had
taken.
" You will certainly not be forgotten at
the Deanery, Lady Craven," he said. " I
have no aecreta from iny wife, but she and
1 will alwaya think well aud kindly of you.
I can anawer for her as certainly aa for my-
aelf. Should chance bring ub anywhere
together again, pray remember that we
oonalder you our friend, aud hold you in the
list of our irit-ii.ii. 1 am sure you are right
ID going, and were I you, I ahould riot
needlessly defer my departure. Let ine
again assure you of my full belief in all you
have told me, aud of my aorrow and sympathy.
Ho ahook bauds very cordially aud took
his leave, and aome two houra afterwards
his gardener brought round a lovely bouquet
of flowers, attach-iil to whioh waa Mrs.
Propert'a card, and the Intimation in her
autograph that they came with her kindest
regards.
I saw the messenger myself, and with a
heavy heart sent back a message of thanks.
By noon next day 1 had completed all my
arrangements, paid all my bills, disposed
of my pony and carriage, and taken an affectionate farewell of my little maid, whose
aorrow at having to leave me wai ouly
equalled by her astonishment at the unexpected present of a Post Office savings hank
deposit book, assuring her of the fact that
fivo pounds stood to her credit. I took her
round to the Post Office myself, and went
through the necessary formalities.
The poor child was fairly amazed, but I
am aure tbat the preaent had nothing
whatever to do with her manifestations of
regret at my departure, which were very
sincere and, in spite of herself, demonstrative. She was a nice bright girl, and I hope
ahe hu married or will marry a good husband,
1 had written to Mr. Meadowsweet a re
quest which he could hardly refuse, that he
ahould be at the station to aee me off. He
waa there as boldly and as regard lesaly of
possible Salchester opinion as need be. And
he also was armed with aome hot-houae
flowers which 1 knew must have eome down
from London, and with a copy of the
Christian Year,
He aaw me Into ray carriage, remained
talking to me at the door, did not finally
ahake hands until the train had begun to
move, and then atood watching it front the
platform until it turned a curve before
reaching tht bridge over tbe river, and so
hid him from eight.
I put the flowers by and opened the book.
Right across the title-page he had written
In his owu bold, clear hand,' * Lady Craven,
from Sebastian Meadowsweet, with every
hearty good wish,".
He at any rate was not ashamed that,
so far as I was joncerued, all the world
ahould know we had been the closest of
friends and possibly even more.
1 do not mind confessing that I kissed
the volume aod put it tenderly by in my
travelling bag before turning to a yellow
covered eoclesiutlual novel of Trollopo's
whioh I had purchased at the bookstall aa
being more or less appropriate to the occasion,   >
So the train���it waa the express���tore
on through the pleasant oountry until we
began to reach canals, and then brick-fields,
and then suburbs, and at last drew up in
that busy focin of life, the (Ireat Western
Terminus at Paddingtou.
A brougham, (or which I had written, waa
waiting for me, and I very quickly found
myself again within the hospitable portals
of Kawlings*, tired with my journey, ready
for supper, and a little annoyed that it wu
too late that night to go to the play.
I badly missed my little maid, but there
nu my supper at any pate, and there are
worse things after a long journey thau a
good English mutton outlet and a glus of
champagne. My sleep that night was aound
and it wu put ten o'clock the next morning before I rang f jr my ohooolate,
CHAPTER XXVI.
After a couple of days again devoted to
maps and guide-books, with their corresponding proa and cons, I decided upon
Kasthampton u my future abode,
1 was very much in the position of a
chess-player who apparently has all the
board open to bim, while in reality every
square is hopelessly blocked. There are
plenty of foreign watering-places but in
every one of them ihere waa tho Certainty,
rather than the risk, that my husband
would be perfectly well known by reputation at any rate, aud that I myself should
be recognized.
England wu my better chance, though
even in England there were difficulties.
At one time 1 almost thought of the Channel Islands, where, ao long u you pay your
bills onoe a week with regularity, nobody
' cares who you are, what you are, or what
may lie your destination, either in this
world or the next. But the Channel Islands,
except for a very few weeks in each year,
are practically as remote from civilization
as the Sonth Sea Archipelago itself, and far
certainly less enjoyable.
So I gave the preference to England,and,
as 1 have said, pitched upon Euthampton,
ot whioh I could say, with even more truth
than the Tichborne Claimant Baid nf Wap-
fling, that I had never been mere iu my
ife, but had beard that it wu a very respectable place,
Raathampton is on the South Cout,anme-
where between the Solent on the east, and
Plymouth on tbe weat. It wu originally a
tubing village, aod that too, not ao many
yeara ago, A London nhyaician liked the
air and built himself a Swiss chalet there.
Little by little he began to buy np the land
"u an oi lloketh up the graaa ofthe field."
Then he built one or two pleaaant villas,
which he let, on distinctly advantageous
terms, to brother medical men. It was then
discovered for the first time that the air of
Keatharapton would arreat consumption in
its earlieat stages, and wu an abeolute specific for all infantile diseases.
Fashionable valetudinarians flocked to it.
The railway opened a branch line. Old
.-Kieulopius wu wise in his generation : he
intended to be a baronet, and to found a
family. There were three hotels in the
plaoe : but he would only allow one public-
house, and sternly refused so much as a
rood of land for a dissenting conventicle of
any denomination whatever.
The old laud jobber's wealth grew like
that of Jacob Astor himsa-lf. The fore-
ahore, whioh he had purohuad by the acre,
he let out oc building, leases by the square
foot, Aa there were no poor in the plaoe,
no poor-rate,aud nothing even remotely
approximating to a slum, the average mortality wes astonishingly low. And at lut
a pier was built, not for the vulgar purposes
of commerce, but to afford a p omenade
and a lauding place for yaohta.
For me Easthampton had this great advantage���that I ahould not be likely to be
identified unless I went into society In my
own name, which I had no Intention of doing, and also that, although the plaoe was
expensive, it was yet quite within my
meana.
Accordingly I took Sea View Bungalow���
aooal led, Iauppoaebeoauielt had no veranda,
a second floor, and a set of garrets over that
���and I furnished it modestly aud unpre-
tentioualy, but very prettily, although laay
it, gave my laate full scope. I also, ot course,
started not a pony-basket, but a respectable
victoria, with a strong sedate cob. I took
three seats in the parish church, and subscribed liberally to all the charities; but
carefully avoided acquaintance of the ministers of the altar, who, with their wives
and daughters, knew their " Crockford" u
well u the members of the Irish peerage
knew their "Debrett,"
My exercise beyond the bungalow garden
wu a daily drive. If I wanted a walk I
drove a mile out up into the country, dis-"
missed my carnage witb inductions to ths
coachman to meet me again, and took my
walk by myself among the lanes.
It was a dull life and yet a very pleasant
one. I had my flowers. I took to breeding
canaries, and I had a regular supply of
books from London through the railway
bookstall. I thua bad enough to do ; and
if I am told that my days must have hung
heavily on my hands, I can ouly answer
that I was busy and happy u compared
with what I had been either at Ossutston,
or In St. James's Square, or even at Sal-
cheater.
dwell upou all this, because I might
otherwiae aeem to ba hurrying my atory.
But fur the present, at auy rate, 1 am in
an uneventful pint of it. Had 1 kept a
diary it would have been a blank for day
after day, little better or inoie significant
than the wooden cross of Robinson Crusoe,
with its aix consecutive abort notches
regularly followed by a deep one.
At lut, however, the time came. The
barracks wero finished, and the cavalry, a
regiment* of Dragoons, and the infantry, a
battalion from a double hattlion Line
regiment, oame down to their new quarters,
filling the wholo place with animation and
bustle.
As soon u they had settled down comfortably, it began to be known that the
Queen's Musketeer's intended giving a
ball and Inviting all the residents who
were what might be officially described u
upon the local Court Directory. 1 need not
aay that Mra. Oucoigne���that is to aay,
myself���wu among the numbsr of those
who received a card of Invitation.
1 hesitated for aome time. Then I decided to accept but not to go, and to plead a
sick headache as au excuse, if I should ever
hereatte; be asked my reason for alay-
ing away. When the evening oame, either
I must have thought better of the sick
headache, or else must have forgotten it, for
I moat certainly dressed myself very carefully and went.
I Want to describe my dress. It wu a
high-cut black velvet of that kind which
announces its excellence by the way In
whioh ita folds hang. It wu tilmmed with
polnt-lace, and my jewels were my favorite
pearls. Beyond those I wore no jewelry
whatever, except a large fire opal. The
stone (a not one whioh ladiea u a rule affect;
but. for myaelf, I have alwaya had a sort of
superstitious fancy for it.
I knew u I entered the room that thore
wu not a woman in it better dressed than
myself, or, to speak quite candidly, with
anything like my taste, Aud men have an
instinct over Us te in a woman's dress exactly
as women have au instinct over wine, although wholly ignorant of vintage!, and
even of brands.
1 danced most of the square dauoea, declined the round dances, waa taken down
to supper by the major himself, and yielded to hii entreaties that after supper I
would join the cotillon. I was then driven
rapidly home and went to bed with the
proud consciousness that I had scored a
distinct triumph among the men, while giving the women as little occasion for jealousy
u possible.
(TOBKOONTINUKP.)
Found Saxon Coins.
A mau working the other day at the
foundatiou of a houae which is being erected in Derby road, Douglas, Isle of Man,
unearthed a stone receptacle containing a
large quantity of coins, rings, and bangles.
The man, being short-sighted, did not observe what bis find wu until soms of the
bystanders seined aome of ths coins and
oruamsnts and appropriated them. He
then took possession of u many as he could,
nearly a shovelful. They were apparently
alt of silver. Tbe spot whero they were
found is about six yards from the high
road, and about one foot below the surface.
The coins are silver akeatta or pennies, the
common Saxon coinage. Suoh as have been
examined proved to be of the period A. D.

I WON'T SNEAK.
It was such a smooth, lovely lake, the
shore was ao nice and pebbly, it was so
shady and pleasant and the water so warm,
it realty seemed a pity, Douglas could not
go iii wading. Mr. Kinsman aud Miss
Mermon, who were spending a few weeks
at this little, quiet sleepy place, were going down to the lake this afternoon and
had uked Douglas and Ernest to go witb
them. Ernest wu from Lho next street
and both boys were spending the summer
here with their mothers. They had both
been there two months, but had never visited the lake or the woods so much u in
the few days since Mr. Kinsman and Miss
Mermon, win* were old friends of Ernest,
had appeared.
Douglas' mamma said he might go but u
he had a bad cold, she thought it beat for
linn not to go in wading. This was especially hard, because Ernest's mamma laid no
such restriction on him. Hut Douglas
wisely concluded to take all the pleasure he
oould, and cheerfully assisted in carrying
the numerous parcels necessary for thia
party to spend an hour or two out door*
It waa utonishlng how many it took.
First, there was the hammock for Miss
Mormon's older sister who had come down
from the city to spend a day, and win
going with them ; then there wu a satchel,
which Ernest wu sure contained something good, white Douglas being moro of
a stranger, wondered as to ita contents.
Then there wu Miss Marion's sketch book
and a book to read loud and finally, para-
sola, for though the walk to the lake was
not a long one, it wu down a dusty road
where the sun shore very hot.
As they neared the lake, the water looked very blue and tempting and Douglas
oould not help saying. "1 wish I could go
in wading."
"Never mind, you can go aome other
time," said hia friend.
"1 suppose I could go now,"said Douglas,
" if I ahould sneak, but I won't do that,"
"No Indeed," said she.
After reaching the shore, they followed
the shady path, whioh wu quite a relief
from the sun, tilt they reached a pleasant
spot looking out over the lake, where there
were trees on which lo hang the hammock,
and some one had left their row boat securely fastened The hammock waa hung up,
tne artist produced her book aud sketched,
and the satchel waa found to contain
peaches, to the great delight of Douglas,
who expressed a desire to eat a thousand.
After performing numerous gymnutic feats
on the hammock, eating peaches and amusing himself in various ways, Douglas got
into the boat, which Ernest, wading around
in the water, wu pushing about. Perhaps
he should not have gone so near to that
beautiful water, but Douglas wu not a boy
to he tempted.
While the boys were thu? engaged, jumping from one seat of the boat to another,
the artiat having finished her sketch strolled further back to the line of wild black*
berry bushes, on which the berries grew
plentifully. An opening in the bushes
afforded a view of the whole lovely scene ;
the trees, the ahore, the blue waler of the
lake, the green woods on the opposite shore,
aud in the fore ground, the boat moored to
the edge, and atill nearer, tbe hammock
idly awiugiug.
Just at that instant, aa plash in the direction of the boat, brought a startled look
to her faoe and well it might, Douglas
literally eat in the water clinging with both
hands and feet to lhe aides ofthe boat,
while Ernest was saying, "please, Mr.
Kinsman, take Douglas out."
You may be aure Mr. Kinsman lost no
time in doing this, aud u Douglas stood ou
tho ground, with the water dripping from
him in streams he certainly presented a
funny appearance. The accident waa not
really serious, as the water wu not up
to his waist and the day wu very warm.
But Mr, Kinsman thought best to hurry
home u rapidly u possible to avoid the
possibility of taking cold, while the others
followed, bringing the various articles.
"Will you explain to mamma how it
happened 1" said Ernest.
"Whyl"
"Because I am afraid sho will think it
wu my fault," aaid Ernest, who seemed to
think because he was with Douglas he muat
be concerned In the matter.
"How did it happen, Douglas T"
"I jumped on a seat and lost my balance
and went over," aaid he,
Douglas' papa was at home and speedily
put him inside of some dry olothes, ao he
appeared at supper, freah aud bright as
ever, non ethe worse for his wetting. No
harm aeemed to result from his experience,
but Douglas wu very glad he had not
thought of "sneaking" and that it had not
resulted from any wrong doing on his part,
which wu much better than if there had
been a memory of an act of disobedience to
mar the day. A wrong act, though repented of, always leaves a soar on the heart.

Sending a Message Round the World.
One day lut April a telegram wu put
into the hands of the courteous chief engi
neer nf the British Postal Service, Mr. W.
H. Preece, with the request that he would
say whether it could lie aent round the
world by a certain route, and if so what
it would coat per word. Whon the writer
of thia artiole went a few daya later to look
after the progress of the telegram, Mr,
Preece shook h'a head, "Tho whole
foreign Department are at it," he aaid,
"aod they are tearing their hair and protesting, but you shall have it soon."
The route planned waa rather erratic.
It uked that the message be sent by a circuit whioh would take in the entire tele
graphic field of the world, touching at the
most remote points, but never leaving the
land line or the cable ; that is never being
transferred by post or messenger from one
point to another. Starting at San Francisco,
the route ran across the continent to Now
York by Vancouver and Montreal. From
New York It followed the world'a northern
telegraphic boundaries through England,
Norway, Sweden, Russia and Siberia Going
south, it touched at Naguaki in Japan,
Hong Kong In China, Singapore, .lava and
Sumatra, crossed Australia and landed in
New Zealand. Returning to Singapore, it
crossed to Bombay, made a detour to Ceylon, then on to Aden, rounded the Cape of
Good Hope, leaving the line at Zanzibar tc
call at Seychellea and Mauritius, mounted
the West African coast to St, Lou is in Senegal, crossed the South Atlantic to Pernatu
buco, traversed South America from Buenos
Ayres to Valparaiso, and then went north
through Mexico to New York. In a few
days, true to his promise, Mr, Preece had
the answer ready. The tolegram could be
sent. It would require ahout Jift.y wix
hours, and would cost about 90 francs (SlH)
per word.

ONTARIO'S WHEAT CROP.
It Wm b�� ��leasldterabli in KxcfssarThai
or Lail Year.
Recently communications were sent out
to the members of tho Dominion Millers'
Association in Ontario, making inquiries
regarding the winter wheat ctop now being
harvested, the prospect of the spring wheat
crop, and the area sown with winter and
spring wheat. Replies have beeu received
from 95 representative millers, situated in
all parts of the provinoe, and they contain
facta wlrch will interest not only the milling trade, but   the whole businesa  public.
How nuch an acre will our wheat fields
yield ? ia the question which most readily
cornea to the tongue of the businesa men.
Other iuleieata have developed largely iu
late years, notably dairying, but wheat
raising is atill one of our buic industries,
aud a large or abort yield haa an important
bearing upou the trade of the province.
A collatiou of the data goes to indicate
that the yield per acre of both winter aud
spring wheat will be considerably in exceas
of that of last year's crop. The average
yield of winter wheat isestimaled at 21 25-
39, as against 19 last year, and of spring
wheat, lil;, as against l*-*-. lut year. Out
of 1l."i districts covered by the replies,
winter wheat was grown in "8 of them,and
spring wheat in 43 of them. The general
run of the replies estimate the yield of
winter wheat trom -0 to 25 bushels per
acre, but In aeveral Inalan-jes superabundant yields are reported. Several points
in tho county of Grey report a yield of .10
bushels per acre. Several points in the
county of Simcou a thirty bushel per aorc
yield, and at one point 35 buahela per
acre ia expected. Around Hespeler, in
Waterloo county, the yield is put down to
25 to 30 bushels per acre. Haldimand is
stated to have an acreage 5 per cent, greater
than that of lut year, a yield of 30 bushols
per acre. In the district around Tavistock
there will also be a largo yield, estimated
at 28 buahela per acre. The crop jn Oreo-
ville if reported muoh better than that of
last year. The acreage ia about the same
aud tho yield of winter wheat ia estimated
at2*i bushels, as against 10 bushels last
year, and of spring at 20 bushels, as against
8 last year,
Tlio enquiry haa brought out the fact
that lhe far-ret* of Ontario are dropping
wheat raising, and are turning their attention to linos that will yield them a
better return. Ont of 95 replica, 34 are to
the effect that the acreage of winter wheat
is from 5 to 75 per cent, leaa than that of
last year, and in only five instances are
increases reported. Out of the aame number there were 29 instances of decreasea
in the spring whea; acieage, and only two
of increase. Tbo increases in -tinier wheat
are in the counties of Brant, Durham,
Simcoe, Peel and North Ontario. Tho
acreage in spring wheat is reported to
have increased iu Hastings and some parts
of Grenville, The decreases in tho acreages
of spring wheat range from 20 to lOOporcent.
In the vicinity of Burlington, county of
Hilton, the farmers are reported to have
dropped cultivationof apring wheat entirely,
though lut year there wu a fair quantity
grown there.

HERE IS A MYSTERY.

A despatch from Ironwood ,Mioh., aaya:
���The remains of an unknown mm were
fo.ind in a lonely part of tho forest
two milea north of this city on Thursday.
A homesteader named .lobe Morris, while
going througli the woods near hia home,
discovered the skeleton of a man, and immediately reportetl it to the authorities.
Tho remains were brought to the oity, but
no one wu able lo identify thum. Tho
body had been burned by the foroat tire
that puaed ovir that aection about six
weeka ago, and only a few bones and aorapa
of clothing remaintd. Near the body wu
found a handsome gold watch and chain,
and solid gold ring. To the chain was
attached a locket, with a fine cameo set
ting and an English sovereign of 1K90 min
tagu. The caae of the watch wu numbered
555,509, and the works which were costly,
were numbered 43(1,659 None of the
arctiolea were marked in any way, ao can
not lead to any identification. The place
whore the body lay wns cut over by wood

would have concealed the remains. No one
has been missed from this or any of the
neighboring cities, and it is a deep mystery

Grim Presents for the Czar.
Tho Czar has had a good many uupleas-

and it was impossible to discover how it
had found a place on the Czar's table. A

one of the bedrooms, on the frontal bone of
which was written "Alexander." Oen.

LAND FOR THE ASKING
Bat H |�� Wortbli'.-i When- Irritation Is
I ni limn I lilc. ,
In Ruasiu Central Asia laud may be had
for the asking, but water is almost price
less. Tliis immense region would be yellow
and white with grain and cotton at every
barveat time if the essential element ef
moisture were not lacking. The land i
worthless where irrigation ia impossible.
Water is the basis of transactions in real
estate, and wo may readily imagine how
vital the water question ia to the many people at Bokhara aod Samarkand. One of
the fertile islauda in lhe vast aea of thirsty
wute lauds ia the villey of the Zerafshan
River, which rise-i among snowy mouuuiua-
and, after a long western course, is swallowed up in desert aauda. In thia valley
were built the two famous capitals of Central Asia, Samarkand aud Bokhara. It la
a curious fact that, for many centuries,
that capital possessing the greater polictioal
prominence wu blessed with more water,
aud consequently the greater prosperity,
than ita rival. The most powerful Rmir in
the region, whoever he happened to bo,
carefully provided that hia favorite town
ahould have plenty of water, no matter if
the other capital went thirsty. There was
one exception to this rule, for when Tamer*
lane made Samarkand the only capital of
his vast empire he was hroadmfnded
enough toordar that the waters of the Zer-
afshan be equally distributed between the
two oues.
It hu been decided to look in another
direction to fulfill the needs of Bokhara
and to give all the water the Xarafahan
leads from the mountains to the diatriot of
Samarkand. Russia hu completed, or is
carrying out in Asia, aome of the most
stupendous projects of the century, and
among them will be the great canal she
proposes to dig to take the waters of the
Oxus, the largest river of Central Asia, tar
across the northern sands to the fates of
Bokhara. When this stupendous project is
completed tha fainoua centre of Mohammedan learning will never again be reduced
to extremitiea for lack ot water to give life
and verdure to her fields. The route of the
canal has beon studied, and is found   to
?resent no great, engineering difficulties
t will, however, be nearly two hundred
miles long, and the work practically involves the creation of a river course through
a desert region. It is indeed a colossal undertaking, and It will be among the
inouuments that will testify mosteloquently
to the genius of this century, Tbe digging
of the canal will soon begin, and it is
thought that it will be done in three years,
For the greater part of thia century Bokhara was more powerful, politically.insisted
upon having the lion's share of the water,
and thua flourished at the expense of Samarkand, All this is now changed. Samarkand was, for years, a part of Russia's
possessions, while Bokhara, waa atill, nominally, independent. Along the valley
Russia haa been developing a number of
Russian towns, and while their plantations
have grown rich orops, and the immigrants
from Europe have found happiness and good
fortuue iu their new homes, Bokhara hu
almost perished of thirst. The representative men of the country have pleaded with
the officials nf theCxarand with the Russian
court itself lo stay the decadence of their
city and give them the water without which
they caunot live. Their pleadings have
received much attention, but the remedy
for the evil is yet to be provided. We may
readily understand Russia's dilemma. A
while ago one of the Ministers of the Government waa sent to the valley of the
Zerafshan to consult with Russian engineers
and see what might bo done to remedy Bukhara's grievance. Mr. Kdouard Blanc, the
well-known French traveller, who wu
preaent, and tells the story, aaya the Chief
Engineer escorted the Minister to the new
Russian settlements, whose prosperous condition inspired tbe distinguished visitor
with pleasure and admiration. Then the
engineer opened a map and said, u he
pointed to Bokhara and the new settlements:
" You may take your choice, Give B-ikhara
what she demands, if you will. But at the
same time you will consign to ruin uur compatriots who are here only because we told
them that in this valley they would find
prosperity."
Slaves to Imagination.
Many of the actual misfortunes of life
msy bo inevitable, but tho miseiy we cause
ourselves by forebodings of evil is not irremediable. True manliueas oan greatly
reduce it if not banish it altogether. Some
of ua who would scorn to be slaves to our
appetitea or passions, yield ourselves in
willing slavery to our imaginations. Wo
think and brood over the evils which surround ua and those which may possibly
overtake ua ; we draw picturea of troubles
and perplexities, mishaps and failures,
shipwrecks and ruin, uud persist in gazing
on ihem. We ponder on and exaggerate
the frown of our party or clique, the derisive amile of a fashionable acquaintance, the
misinterpretation whioh a friend may put
upon our action. Now, if.as hu been said,
those prospective evils are never ao bad u
we fanoy, but often diminish or even melt
away upon near approach���if those which
do come to ub bring with them freah courage and new strength, aurely most of ua
have sufficient Intelligence and sell-control
to subdue those imaginings and turn our
thoughta into aome other and purer channels. If the dreams of happiness are seldom
fully realized, neither are the forbodingH of
woe. It la safe to say that there is more
sorrow in the imagination of misfortune
than in the misfortune itself. The vision
of pain connected with the dentist's chair
is often moro vivid and pregnant than the
actual pain endured while sitting in it. So
it is wiih most human Buffering : it is exaggerated by anticipation. The sum of
philosophy in this respect is to lie found in
the old-time apothegm that we should never
bid a certain aable gentleman " good -morrow " until wn meet him.
They Hake Good Soldiers.
A country that can produce good sol
diers ought to be uble to raise good olli-
eors. That Canada can do the former
an American of considerable experience
n war haa testified. Major Edmund
Mulct aaid the other day iu Boaton that
Canadians make the beat soldiers physically that he hu ever seen. In his company, the Hlat New York Volunteer
Infantry, in the late war, he had forty-fiv e
of them, and no hardships could dampen
thur gay spirits nor toil exhaust their
hard frames. In thoso terrible forced
inarchcB ofthe army of the Potomac in tho
Peninsula, with the thermometer far up in
the ni titles and the dust a foot deep, when
thousands uf men tell uul by tho road-side,
many of them never to march again,
these Canadians trudged along cheerily,
beguiling lhe weary way with joke and
song.

Household.
Economy in the Home.
These be hard times, when new methods
of economy are eagerly sought. A great
deal of unnecessary expense may be saved
without depiiving the family of the best the
market afforda by a systematic course o
borrowing prime articles of butter, tea, cof
fee, etc., from the neighbors, and repaying
the samo with goods of an inexpensive character, or the act nf repayment may be
omitted altogether with profit for a limited
period. As a general thiug, however, it is
good economy to pay debta of thia kiud in
the manner suggested.
One very considerable economy needs the
cooperation of another family. Let two
young people gel engaged, aud uo marketing to speak of need be done* Tbe engagement need ouly be temjwrary, but every
oue is expected to givo a dinner to tbe
iiappy pair prospective. It the honeymoon
ever rises for said pair, it will probably be
spent in taking sure cures for dyspepsia.
That reminds me that ia far better to pay
thu butcher than the doctor, lu fact, il is better to pay any one than the doctor. Therefore, if a member of the family fall ill, it is
clearly improvident to waste money in the
employment of physician, or upon drugs
and medicines, instead, rather spend the
money upon prime outs of meat aud artificially raised trims and vegetables. If tbe
aick person cannot cat of theu luxuries, the
well ones, including yourself, can eat them;
bo that not only is monoy aaved but there
ia a distinct aud acceptable gain to you in
manner and diet.
Speaking of food, it is pour economy to
buy fancy patented food for water-bugs and
roaches. The household pots thrive quite
aB woll on crumbs and bits of meat, and the
expense is hardly appreciable. Besides,
some of theso paleul foods might be poisonous, and you might get into trouble with
thu sooiety whose business it is to protect
animals.
And while I am on the subject of petaand
food, let me remind you that it is -* mistaken idea that children Bhould not be allowed
to psrtakeofsweetauutiltheaubatantial parte
of a meal have been disposed of. By permitting lhe little ones to indulge freely iu
saccharine foods at the outset their stomachs
wiil become oloyed, rendering it impossible
for them to partake largely of other articles,
and thus will your meat bill be, iu mora
thun one way, sensibly diminished.
Home Hade Awnings.
Got for the frames of your home-made
awnings two round pieoes of wood, like
broom handles. These will do nicely if
you have enough of them. Put a screw
eye through the end of the broom handle
and futen it to the side of the window by
running a book through it. Pinch the
hook shut so that the eye will not slip out.
Now futen to the top of the window casing at the sides two similar ati'-ks, but
longer, u they must reach out to the outside edge of the awnings. Place another
round stick betweo the end of the stick
which you put in the lower part of the
window and iho end which you put in the
upper part, and you have thu awning frame
when you have done thia ou both aides of
the window. It is ever ao euy. And if
you do not understand, look at au awning
aud you will Bee for yourself.
A little sail cloth may be bought und the
awniug part made and sewed on. Of
course, aa planned, thore are no side pieces
to the awnings. But this is Immaterial
and is preferred by many, as it shields
Without shutting out the view. A little
ingenuity and arranging of strings running
over the window will lift up the awnings.
One woman I know was so ingenious lhat
Bho got the idea of lifting the awnings
above the casing after they were closed.
And maybe other women will see how to
do this, Ttie screw eye theu runs upon a
rod placod perpendicularly on the window
casing.
A Bunch of Recipes.
Capor Sauce.���Two tablespoonfuls of
Hour and a half cupful of butter beaten to
a cream ; then add a pint of boiling water.
Set the mixture ou the lire and stir it continually uutil heated to the boiliug point;
then aid salt and pepper lo taste, three
tableBpoonfuls of capers and one tablespoonful of lemon juice. This is the best
sauce to serve wiih lamb.
Mint Sauce, ���Pick, wuh and shred fine
some fresh mint, put on it a tableapoonful
of sugar and four tablespoonfuls of vineger.
Nice with mutton and lamb,
Egg Sauce for Fish.���Take one cupful of
butter, rub into it one tablespoouful of
flour, half a talliespoonful of salt, and a
quarter of a tor-spoonful of black pepper ;
then add a pint of cold water. Heat it,
stirring all the timo; when it begins to
simmer, remove it from tho fire, and add
two hard-boiled eggs chopped fine.
Irish Potato Puff.���Stir two cupfuls of
muhed potatoes, two tablespoonfuls of
melted butter and Bome salt, to a fine,
light, creamy condition ; then add two eggs
well beaten, separately, and six tablespoonfuls of cream ; beat the whole lightly
together, then pile it tn rocky form on a
dish, and bake it in a quick ovon until
nicely browned. Il will tiecome quite
light.
Potato Snow,���Select large Irish pole*
loea of uniform size, and boil in their skins
iu salt water until perfectly done. The
great art of boiling Irish potatoes ia not to
allow them to remain in the water a minute
after they are done, and if they are nnt
properly cooked, the dish will be a failure.
When the potatoes are done, drain dry
an 1 peel tbem. Then rub ihem through a
coarse sieve upon a hot dish on the atove.
Thia muBt be the dish that goea to tbe
table, u it will never do to touch them
after the Hakes fall into thc dish. Let the
cover of the dish be hot before it is put on.
Serve immediately.
Baked Cabbage.���Cook a cabbage till
perfeally done in salted waler. Takeitup
with a skimmer, so as to drain out llm
water aa much as (.ossible. Put it Into a
dish, cut it up fine, season lo your taste
with butter and pepper, adding a little
more salt if necessary ; then add a cup of
rich sweet milk���loss, if the cabbage is
small. Put tho whole In a baking disti aud
cover tho top a quarter uf an inch thick
with rolled crackers or fine bread crumbs,
on which put minute pioces of butter here
and there. As soon as it browns it is done.
Servo in the samo dish, This is the most
delicious way cabbage was over cooked,
Tho rolled crackers are put over it to absorb
the moisture.
Pineapple Pie.���Take the weight of one
grated pineapple in sugar, and half lis
weight iu butler. Cream the butter and
stipar together, add lhe well beaten yolks
of five eggs, then a cup of sweet milk and
iho pineapple ; lastly the whites ot the
eggs beaten to a froth. Bake in one crust
only.    Kal the pies cold.

MORAL TONE  OF SOCIETY.
The moral tone of society must be kept
Up or things are bound to go to the bad.
We often see people of respectability
winking at things in others which they
���vould be ashamed to do themselves. Society ought to he so constructed that one
who would steal, or get drunk, or disregard the ties of marriage would find himself outside of the pale of respecubility.
There should be a line drawn somewhere, or even the most poluted character* will hai e the same standing as the
best. We do draw the line but at a very
lnw mark. A murderer even, if allowed
to be at large, would probably be shun*
cd; but we freely fraternize with those
who openly and flagrantly violate the
fundamental principles upon which re-
t pec table society is based, not simply in
a business nay, but in a social way. A
halt will have to be called, or almost total want of restraint, will so pollute theso
Cial atmosphere which we breathe, that
uo family can escape its withering blight.
FRASER RIVER RELIEF.
It is a great pity that politics have
crept in to create acrimony in so noble a
work as ilic distribution of relief to the
Kisser Kiver sufferers. A great charity
has been dispensed by the Government.
Doubtless mistakes have been made. In
an emergency it is impossible to investigate every case with such rare as to prevent imposition and fraud. All will there
fore, not be dealt with alike. Some necessarily receive relief who are abundantly able to take care of themselves, while
others will not be aided to the extent to
which lhey are justly entitled. Hut so
far as possible each person should take
care of himself. Thc mere fact that one
has lost heavily does not entitle him to
help provided he has enough left to get
along without suffering. Neither do we
think the people of the Province should
seek in public way for alms abroad so
long as the Government here is ready
and willing to extend all proper help.
Above all things it is cowardly to attempt
to lake advantage ofthe situation to gain
a political end. Let there be t��ome decency in politics.
THE POLITICAL SEASON.
From Montreal Star.
The political season is open again in
Canada. Sir John Thompson has come
down from the pure air and passionless
qi'iet of the Muskoka lakes to be trundled about Toronto, and then he will
hurry on to Ottawa to attend a Cabinet
meeting. Mr Laurier began a picnic
campaign at St. Lin and Montenl last
week, and is now moving out to the west.
There he will be bothered about the
Manitoba school question, and asked
why his party did not move tariff amendments last session. The Conservatives
of Cardwell are preparing to chcose a
candidate for the long-threatened by
election there, and we are warned lhat
ihe lightening may strike at Lisgar, Man
about the same time. The political holiday is apparently over, and another year
uf party feeling begins. The Government will naturally be anxious to do
something lo offset the Laurier-Uavie
lour io the West, and they can do nothing half so effective as a little governing.
After all, the business of thc politicians
���ii office is to govern the country. The
j repression might easily grow up that it
was something quite different-- a sort of
an alteration between "dishing the Grits"
and dishing it up tn the Tories��� but a
ralm study of thc spirit and purpose of
the constitution would convince the most
excited partisan that the first duty of the
men who make up a government is to
govern. And there is an abundant
chance to do some great governing in
this country jusl now. That marvellous
piece of misgovern ment* ihe Curran
bridge fiasco, is still left largely unexposed and unpunished, and it is a fitting errand for governors to study thc methods of those who have baulked their best
endeavors in thc past that thev may be
oh guard in lhe future, may get rid of un
faithful and incapable servants, and may
blacklist dangerous friends.
The Laurier picnic puts the Mail ina
reminiscent mood, and it tells again the
story of Sir John Macdonald's famous
picnicking tour prior to the elections of
-78 when the campaign proved so effec-
tevc. Laurier probably remembers the
methods of his conqueror and proposes
to apply the knowledge learned of his
Matter.

What is an Insurance Sale?
So many people ask the question.   We shall explain:������
After the late disasterous fire in Nanaimo the Insurance Companies cancelled a large number of policies in some blocks.   We
have just $10,000.00 to place Just at present in any other Company.
Now we cannot afford to carry over large stock without sufficient insurance. Consequently we are compelled to unload. To do
this quickly we have put the prices lower on everything in our immense stock���than Dry Goods have ever been bought before���less
than cost in nearly every instance. See price lists which we have
sent out.
