ton Brass band were drawn up at onc
side of the platform and alternated with
patriotic airs during the progress of the
reception. As the special drew up it was
greeted with enthusiastic cheering. The
appearance of the distinguished guests
was the signal for the chorus of childrens
voices to join in "God save the Queen".
Arrived on the platform the Governor
General and Lady Aberdeen listened to
an appropriate address read by Mr. J.
B. Hugo in behalf of the Committee.
Miss. M. Anderson, sister-in-law of
Mr. Alexander Sharp, master of Ceremonies, then presented the Countess
wilh a boquet and Lady Margone Gordon received a similiar token from the
hands of Little Miss Jennie Bryden.
His Excellency responded to the ad-
oress as follows; Yonr Honor, Mr.
Dunsmuir, Ltdies, and Gentlemen,���
It is a happy and appropuate circumstance lhat at the terminal point of the
railway over which we have enjoyed a
most agreeable and interesting trip, we
should be received by this loyal and cord
ial demonstration. I can assure ynu
that we value such a manifestation and
shall nnt forget it. This indication of
public spirit, cordiality, antl charcteristic
British Columbia hospitality is certainly something that reflects credit upon the people of this enterprising locality
and city. I can assure you that we have
looked forward wiih much interest to this
part of the tour, which, as the address
remarks, we have been enabled to make
through the Province of British Columbia, and the impression which we have
formed of the resources of the country,
and what is still more, of the determination of the people to develop those resources, makes us more than ever proud tobe
associated in this great work of delelop-
ing and building up more aud more the
prosperity of this important part ofthe
great British Empire; [applause] and ladies and gentlemen while 1 refer to what
may be called the official and public aspects of this occasion I need scarcely assure you that this makes of none the less
value those kindly personal sentiments
which are here conveyed. It is not only
gratifying, it shonld, I think be encouraging to those who are called upon to nil
anv public position to find that any endeavors they may have made to do their
duty in that position are so kindly and
heartily recognized; and therefore I thank
you again for the manner in which, in an
admirably short compass, ynu have contrived tc indicatethose various expressions
to which you have made reference. I will
not detain you longer. I am all the more
desirous of curtailing my remarks, because
we shall wish to make the most of our opportunities of visiting Wellington, (applause.) His Excellency then addressed a few words to the children. Among
other things he reminded them that the
town was called after the great Duke of
Wellington, whose example of devotion
to duty and to lis country he urged ihem
to emulate. He alto expressed his pleasure at seeing the members of the boys
Brigade He impressed upon them the
fact that the object was to encourage true
christian manliness in the best sense of
the wcrd and habits of punctuality, rei;- I
ularity, discipline, and good order. His '
Excellency also pointed out to the boys
amidst expressions of hearty applause the
great value of perseverance and drill; and
the time when this virtue was most requisite was when they feel that drill was tedious and were inclined to grow weary of
application. He then announced that he
would be glad to offer a prize for the boy
with the best record fo-i regularity, general efficiency and punctuality. Subsequently His Excellency* said: I must explain that as we have to be at Vancouver
where we have an engagement this evening, I hope yon will forgive ni if oar visit
is brief. I mail offer oar testimony regard.

Clearing the Com Stubble.
Tho neat farmer who loves to aee his
fields clean auJ free from trash that ia un-
sightly ( nnd it may be said that whatever
is thus disagreoablo is squally uadeslrible
in other ways) alwaya objects to the ap-
pearauce of the corn Btubble in tlie Isnd

the Bering crops. They nro not ouly unpleasant lolookat.butthcy arein the wayof

Immediate good uso. A liar of atrong oak
timber ��ix Inches wido and three thick has
a tongue iiited Into it in the uBUbl way,
nnd fa furnished With a number of curved
teeth mado of half inch steel bar. The
teeth are sharpened bo that thoy take faat
hold of tlie stuba bolow ilie tmrface of Lhe
������round and tcAr thom out, and alao gather
thom as they pull thum out of tlio noil. Aa
a load ia collected, the rake is lifted by a
pair of handles fastened tu the bar. The
shape of tho teeth is shown, aud these are
beat made with a thread on the top for a
tint to faaten them in tho bar. The bar
may he made &a long or short as may be
thought proper. The moat effect ia gained
by going diaronally noroBa the rowa so that
the ifi'th will lake good hold of the stubs.
Tho beat timo to do tho work is after the
ground haB been softened by the rain, but
not until tbo soil is dry enough for clean
work. The teeth ahould bo not leas than
four inches apart. In turning at the end
of the rowa it will be safest to Tift the bar
clear of the ground to avoid bonding the
teeth. When tho gathered trash ia dry it
may bo burned and the ashes spread at
Cheese Making at Home.
Cheese making has always seemed to me
to belong to tho occult arts, aud I have regarded with awe and reverence the woman
who could mako cheese at homo with even
good conveniences, writes a correspondent.
But after many trials I have learned how
to make cheese with tho commonest kind
of implements, ond have good reeuUs, The
milk from siv cowa aaved nig lit and morning
will mako a cheese weighing about ten
pounds when done. If one doea not have
enough milk, it is a good plan to elub together with a neighbor and divide the
cheese or tho profits therefrom after mak*
ing. A thermometer is needed for cheese
making, Ono of the commonest causes of
tough cheeso is having the milk at a wrong
temporuture, eighty degrees being right,
Une cannot toll how warm the milk is by
trying it with tho hand, a temperature of
eighty degrees will often seem cold. The
first thi t'He I assisted in making, I had the
niilk too warm, and although the curd
formed speedily, the choose was very tough
and poor. Having tho temperature right,
dissolve and add oue small rennet tablet for
the milk from six cows.atir up and let stand
till it thickens; the time required will be
from forty minutes upward. I have an
idea that tlio longer it takes to thicken,the
better the cheese, but thiB may be a notion.
When well thickened, take a knife and :ut
down throng)) it in squares, then wait for
tho whey to 1-egin to come up on top. When
it scparates,lay a checBO cloth over the top
of tin: curd and dip the whey off. A boiler
will do to have the milk in and a cheesecloth
a yard aud a half or two yards in length will
do to put ovor it to extract the whey. All
handling must bo dono gently, as tho rougher tho handling the more cream is loat in
the whuy. Save a little whey for aftor use,
After dipping off part of tho whey, stir the
curd very gently with tho hands, break it
up, and this will eliminate more whey; this
should be repeated until the whey is all
separated from the curd. Next take a
olothes basket, Hprcad tlio cheeso cloth in it,
and place tho basket over a tub. Carefully
put tlie curd into the cloth and work a
little with tho handa till it begins to seem
fine and the whey is woll drained out. If
tho whey does not separate easily, the milk
should havo stood a little longer to thicken,
Much will be learned iu making one cheese.
After tho curd ia worked aa abovo, heat
ubout a quart of whey ao that it will foel
warm to tlio hand, and poi.r over the curd,
work a little, and if tho curd squeaks while
handling it is ready to salt, but if there is
no squeaky sound, heat a little more whey
and pour over ; it taken vory little heat to
harden tlio curd so that it will squeak;
if it becomes too "squeaky," the cheeae
will be hard and tough. II the milk was
too warm to begin with, tho curd will
"squeak" beforo tho warm whey ia poured
over it, and it should be omitted. Allow
four or fivo good tablospoonfula of salt for
the milk from six cows, and work in lightly,
taste,and if not sallcnoughadd attttlemore,
work the curd up, aud havo lho press ready.
This may bo improvised. A round hoop
from a peck measure will do, that is, a
cook measure with no bottom in. Lay a
cloth in this, sot it up with a clean board
under 11, put a cloth over tho top of the measure,put thoctird on the oloth and let It press
tho cloth down into llu* measure. Have a
cover that will fit insidu the measure,
bring tho cloth ovor tho top of the curd aa
smoothly as possible, put tlio oover down
and press by means of a lever or with
weigluH, Tbe weight needed in not ex*
Ireu.e, bccauio if pressed too hard the
cheese will nut be aa good. To makea
good cheese tlio following points must be
remembered : First, do not have tho milk
tun warm, eighty degrees being right;

In 1759 General Wolfe anchored off

him at the Post Office, also asking at what
time it would bo convenient to evacuate the
placo. The reply camo back from (ioneral
Montcalm, sn able French General, that
there was no mail for the General, but if
Wolfe was dissatisfied with tbe report he
might run up personally and look over tho
Wolfe did ao, taking hia troops up hy an
unknown cow-path on the off-side of the
mountain during the night, and at daylight-
stood in battle-array on tha Plains of

surprise. At the third firo Wolfe wa
fatally wounded, and as ho w&s carried

Montcalm had a similar experience. Ho

" Wo do," replied tho man.
"Then bo much the better," said Montcalm, as his oye lighted up, "for I shall not

The  lmllratl<-ii��  Point  la  n Short Crop
This fear All Over lhe World.
In tins couutry potatoes are rising iu
rank as an agricultural product. A few
years ago it was only iu certain sections,
especially adapted to potato-growing, that
farmers spared the land to raise any considerable surplus upon. On the ordinary
farm five acres waa doemed an unduly large
plantation. In the interior the greater part
of the excess over producers' wants wa3
distributed at home, in our towns and
cities. The exports were maintained by
the Maritime Provinces, the vastly groater
portion of them by Princo Edward Island,
This has been pretty much tho cose up to tho
preaent, but that is owing to restrictions iu
the way of trade rather thau to the relative
value of potatoes, which has been going up
in recent years. If Ontario farmers during
tho last three years havo not grown more
for export than thoy used to raise, it is
becauso tho duty shut thom out troin the
most convenient market. If admission to
the United States had beon easy, moro
would have been grown to send thore.
Formerly potato-patches ou tho average
Ontario tarin were small for tlio reason
that lho land could be moro profitably employed raising
But since wheat has suffered such a
dumbfounding decline, and while barley has
been without a market, the return from
those two grains does not put to shame the
return from potatoes. If tho United States
tariff had not onoped up tho supply in this
province the crop here would undoubtedly
nave expanded in correspondence with tho
increase in its comparative market value.
The ohange in duty now makes it possible
to export potatoes to tho States, tlie rate
being reduced from 2.'.;, to 15c. per bushel
of 01) lbs. A shortage in the crop produced
thi* year on tho other sido of the border
tends to create a vacuum and a rise in price
there. ThiB Ib a aecond condition that
should turn spare potatoes from thia country to the United StatcB. But hero we are
to have a smaller crop than last yoar, if the
estimates of our agricultural contemporary,
Farm, Ranch, at 'l Orchard, arc near thc
mark, That paper places the aggregate
crop of Canada this year at 4 i,S,"i4,01)0 bushels, as against a yield last year of 02,407,000
bushels. Our average yield per acre is estimated at 94 bushels, as against 112 bushels
last year. According to the aamo authority
cropa all over Kuropo are to be
than they wero last. This would aeem to
point to higher prices all around. Just
now car loads command about ii0 c. a bag
here, but if production has fallen off ao
much aa it is supposed to havo done, that
price must bo materially improved on before shipping weather ia past. When potatoes are high on this side of the ocean,
thero is usually a rush of supplies from
Scotland, Ireland or Continental countries*,
but shortage there must koep such shipments within limits. Howovor, ocoan
IreightB are now very low. It looks, at
all eventa, as if all tho potatoes raised in
Canada this year would bo saleable at
pricea remunerative lo tlio growers. Ontario growers will not find themselves
cramped for a market as in past yoars.
Then they had to soil at home nearly all
they raised, and their home markets was
made amullor by tho fact that nearly every
non-agricultural householders outside of
tho citiea had his own littio plot under
potatoes. Now the price is likely io be a
fairly good one, until navigation closes
water-freights will be low, and the duty at
the United States frontier Is 10 o. a bushel
less than it was last year. Unless tho out-
look ia deceptive, potatoes should mako bo
good a roturn this year as to induce our
farmers to plant a larger acreage next

Whito on hla way to grand lodjie Rev. Mr.

with Mr. Belts turned iu that direction,
when he told the World that he had that
day met an old friend whoso experience
was a most remarkable one. Tlio friend
alluded to is Mr. John Sobjr, for many years
proprietor of one of the leading hotels of

of lovo ami happiness seen in a bride's eyes

"Hero alio is, uncle," cried Edie, who

aa ho drew his child to his breast *" and am

"Oh, ho happy, father; to content at

"Eh? what���what'.'" cried the admiral
"heaving tiomc and you."

If they had not spoiled bim by getting

sadly, "It was no nonsense. Whatever

"Ut the past reat, dear," said Myra

"she has a strange Guest In her eye���

"Don't Myra dear. Kiss Unole and
como back to your room,"and after a loving
embrace between father and daughter the
bridesmaid carried oil the bride to the room
where lhe traveling trunks lay ready packed, tho bridal veil on a chair ; and after the
last touches had been given to the bride's
toilot, the cousins were left alono,
" Now, Myra darling, any moro commands for mo about uncle? We may not

" No, dear," said the bride thoughtfully.

"Hush, dear���Don't���pray don't talk
about It."
" I can't help it, Myra ; my tongue will
talk thia morning. Oh, I am so glad that
it will bo all right this time,"
Myra's brow contracted a little, but her
cousin rattled on.
"It has always seemed to me such stuff
to talk of you aa a widow. Oh, Myra,
don't look like lhat. What a stupid,
thoughtless thing I am."
She flung her arms about hor cousin, and
was again bursting into tears whon thoro
was a tap at the door, and aho shrank away.
" Como in."
One of the lady's maids appearod.
" Sir Mark says, ma'am, that tha carriages aro waiting, and Miss Jerrold will
not come up."
Myra took her bouquet andtnrnedamiih;
to her   cousin as the maid burst out w
" Ood   bless yon,   Miss Myra���I in

The Bcoond maid wub at hand to second
the wish, and tho pair performed a duot in
sobs as the cousina swept down tho broad
staircase to the admiral's room,
" Timo, my dear, timo," cried Sir Mark
jovially. " Come, Edith, aunt will be furious if you keep her any longer."
Edie took her arm, but dropped it again
to inn btio kisB her cousin ence agaiu.
Then tripping to the old man's sido ho led
her down t tie broad staireaso and across the

and the servants in the background to seo

A carriage was in wailing, with a tall,
stern looking, gray lady inside.
" Late, Mark," sho said sharply. "Como
Edio, my child, and let's get it over."
" You're all alike," aaid tho admiral, as
the bridesmaid took her plaoe, the carriage
started, and with head ereot the old sailor
strode back, seeing nobody, aud went up to

of whispering, proudly leading down lho

himself, " They haven't Been such a bride

Quite a little crowd followed to the
hotel door, there was a general waving of
handkerchiefs, and ono lady throw a boquet

The Tramp's See-Saw.
A tramp with a blase manner lackadlsl-
cally walked up to tho rear entrance of a
farmhouse and gently tapped the door with
his finger tips. Tho door was opened by a
sharp faced vision, who Inquired what thc
gentleman of loisura desired,
"Madam," he said with a very profound
bow, "I have a request lo prefer."
" Well, sir, be quick about it," was the
not encouraging reply,
"Madam I would fain oat."
"Do you boo that wood,sir?" aha replied,
pointing to a large pile of timber which had
not been shot tenod to tho required stovo
Slowly ho turned his head and lookod in
the direction of tho pointing finger, then
with as much calmness as ha oould command ho spake thus:���
"Madam, you aaw mo acu the wood, but
you won't seo me saw tbo wood."
Before tho woman had recovered from

The beaming if t. mole and dockyard at
Gibraltar shows that the British Admiralty
ia determine j to answer very promptly by
practical action criticisms on the lack of
facilities at that place for the repair of a
great fleet.
The hypothesis put forth by aome experts
ia that of a great battle fought near the
mouth of the Mediterranean for the control
of that sea iu which a Freuoh fleet should
get tho better of the Knglish. It ia shown
that auch a result Is not impossible, on
account of the iuiu.-ior line possessed by
France, which might allow her Toulon and
Brest fleets to conccntratn against the
English vessels on the Mediterranean
station before they could be reinforced by
the home fleet trom Portamouth. In oase
0f suoh a def'Mit, the British squadron
would, it is aai lie in a bad position, since
at Gibraltar would not have adequate
resources for    fitting.
There haB boon two views aa to England's
policy in the Mediterranean, in view of tho
requirement a for maintaining Englioh
power thero, under tho possible attack of
and threatening tha English coast as well
as the British lleot In tho Mediterranean.
Some have argued that the wisest plan for
England iu mch a caae would be to leave
Egypt to take care of herself. W, Laird
Clowes, a well-known writer on naval
toplos, has even advised not waiting for tho
contingency of war, but of exchanging
Gibraltar in advance for a new and better
naval atation in Morooco on the other side
of the straits. Spain, of oourse, would be
only too glad to effect auoh a change, and
the ground on which it Is supported by Mr.
Clowes is that a fleet taking refuge at
Gibraltar would be under Are from land
batteries on Spanish territory, and hence
would be imperilled either by tho alliance
of Spain with England's enemies or by the
forcible seizure of Spanish territory around
Gibraltar by the latter. Mr. Clowea has
also quite recently dwelt upon the advantages possessed by Toulon over Malta and
Gibraltar. He declares it to be the finest
naval and military base on the Mediterranean. He says that Toulon "can exist
indefinitely in its full power, even if all the
fleas around France be strongly held by thi
most comprehensive combination of enemies." One great advantage whioh It has
ovor Malta and Gibraltar is that it draws
ita supplies from a great country at Ub
back, whereas the English ports depend
upon what is brought by sea. Again,in its
splendid shipbuilding plants it is superior
to thorn, and oan thus turn out floating
defences for its own purposes,
Admiral Colomb, in this year's number
uf Lord Brassey's " Naval Annual," has
discussed at much length tho question of
England's supremacy io the Mediterranean.
Hia conclusion ia that she must maintain it
there, if alio wished to rule the waves beyond. It has sometimes been pointed out
that it is very expensive to keep in that sea
a British naval force
combined with tho possibilities of Russia,
But Admiral Colomb does not consider such
a force in time of peace a matter of prime
importance, provided the entire available
force u* Great Britain is equal to that of
those two countries combined. In tact, if
England should keop a very large fleet iu
the Mediterranean, an enemy might ba
tempted to m&ka a mere feint there and
change its real attack to tho Channel. The
advantage of keeping tho main British
fleet in Koine waters is a double ono, because
it not only makes a very largo number of
vessels available for service anywhere
where it is scon that they aro needed, but
saves also tho great expense of keeping an
enormous fleet in tho Mediterranean. This
he believes to bo all tho sounder policy
from the high speed and rapid mobilization
now practicable, while be has little faith in
the possibility of crushing a British fleet in
tho Mediterranean by a single unexpected
Aa to the Suez Canal, Admiral Colomb
says that "it is very well to use it in peace
time, but should war arise between the
British empire and'any strong combination
of European powers we ought to blow up
and destroy the canal, evacuate Egypt and
bestow tho wholo of our powor in maintaining intaot tho tino oourse ot our commerce
around the capo." Of course, apart from
the strategic importance of theMeditorran-
ean tho commercial value of it to Great
Britain is of tho highest consequence,
The construction of the mole and dock
yard at (iibralthr appears, therefore, to be
thoroughly justified by the necessities of
the case. If England is to maintain her
command of the Mediterranean ehe must
havo adequate repair and coaling facilities
there. Willi audi accommodations she can
venture to koep a smaller lleot there in time
of poaco than alio would liko to rely upon in
a combination of two great navies against
Paper From Sunflowers.
It ia possiblo to mako paper out of nearly
anything, aud tho latest material suggested
is the stalk of tho aim flower, says tho Man
chester Courier.  Some few weeks ago the
experiment was tried at a factory in the
Thames valley, firat with hammer and an
anvil, and afterwards with regular paper
making machinery. In tho latter instance
somo 500 pounds of pulp were tested, and
they produced about 1120 pounda of paper.
The substance, howovor, was of a coarse
texture, and far hotter suited for wrapping
up parcels than for taking   printers'   ink.
in fact, lho conclusion was that sunflower
stalks aro too short in fibre to make a good
papor without the addition of some foreign
material like rags. What is mora, the in*
grcdlent would havo to bo nearly fifty per
cent, ot tho wholo pulp. Accordingly,
sunflower piper hardly aeema practicable,
unless, indeed, its title gavo it a fancy
value to tho survivors of tho aesthetic
school. Unfortunately, they havo become
ao reduced tha'. tho market would bo extremely limited.
Plot for a Novel.
In consequence of a mental malady, a
Georgia lady conceived It her duty to live
apart from her husband, and, in order that
he might apply for a divorco, forged documents which would give him cause. The
husband knowing they wore not true, but
thinking that to humor his wifo would cure
hor malady, presented tho papers to tho
legul authorities, and a divorce was granted. Tho ex-husband immediately began to
make lovo to his former wife again, and
proposed marriage iu duo form, but, although sho appeared happy in his company
and would go with him to the theatre and
liko places, she absolutely ref used Ins proffer
of marriage, and expressed a wish that he
would wed a girl whom sho named. Now
tho man is sicking to have tho dcoroo of
divorco set asido,
Cold In the Head.
What is commonly called "a cold in th
head" ia the iuflammation of the mucous
membrane lining the oavity of the nose,
and ib characterized by a mucous secretion,
generally of short duration, but which in
aome oircumstancea may last indefinitely.
The principal cause of the latter condition
ta the existence of ulceration covered with
scabs, the secretion of whioh undergoes
decomposition and gives rise to the characteristic odour. The difficult point in the
treatment of all eases of this sort is to freo
the nose completly by means of nasal irrigation nf the matter covering the damaged
mucoua membrane, and thia the patient ia
usually unable to do; for this reason thiB
oondition often requires treatment for
which the patient ia obliged to have recourse
to specialists. But according tu M. Muse*
hold, of Berlin, this complex treatment
may be noticeably simplified by means of
applications of glycerine, which on account
of the hygroscopic propertiea of Una substance, rapidly softens the cruita in the
noao and render their removal vary eaay,
In order that the patient may be in a
position to make those applications personally, M. Musehold proscribes glycerine and
borax diluted with water until it oan be
used in a small Bpray. Tho sprays should
bo dire-ind into eaoh of the nasal cavities
two or ihreo times a day. A fow minutes
aftor thia Ilttlo operation lho crusts are
aullicioiitly softened to be easily removed
by moans of u nasal irrigation. Under tho
influence of this treatment It is claimed
that alt the disagreeable symptoms of the
disorder improve or disappear rapidly.
Fop the Invalids.
Thickened milk is one of the moat nourishing foods we have, and is particularly
valuable bb a remedy for diarrha-a and
kindred diseases. Tie a bowl full of flour
in a oloth and boil for aeveral houra (im-
mersed in water). When the oloth is re.
moved the flour will be a hard ball. Pare
off the crust and grate the flour down aa
wanted. Aa the flour ia already cooked, It
only needs to boll up enough to thicken the
milk when wanted.
Barley water is a favorite drink with
many invalids. Wash two ounces of pearl
barley and put It In half a pint of boiling
water ; boil about five minutes and drain
the water off and pour over it two quarts
of boiling water ; boil away half the water
then atrain. Sweeten and flavor with
lemon juice.
Another drink that will Bustain life
when nothing else oan be taken is coffeo,
prepared as follows : Makea atrong cup of
coffee, put in cream and sugar (a little
more sugar than for ordinary drinking)
and pour over a thoroughly beaten egg,
after bringing the prepared coffee to a
boilii-g host, so that it would cook the egg
when poured over it.
Cream-ofrice Soup: Wash two table
spoonfuls of rice, let it stand in cold water
foran hour, and then put in a double boiler
half a pint of chicken broth, half a pint of
milk, a scant salt spoon of salt aud tbe
drained rice. Cook one and one-half hours,
rub through a flue sieve and replace over
tha fire. When it comes to tho boiling
point poar it on the beaten whito of an egg
and stir thoroughly; serve hot.
Turkish Baths.
There are three grand maxims that all
who use Turkish baths should rigidly observe. First, never to return to the frigi-
darium until after the douche or plunge ;
secondly, to avoid all undue excitement
and thirdly, to retain aa far as poasible the
horizontal position. Conversation should
be sparingly indulged in at every stage
of lho bath, oven in the final one ; but it Ib
especially to bo deprecated in the hot
chambers, where, it carried on at all, it
should be in an undertone and quite desultorily. Physical exercise of any kind ia
obj.-ol humble, and no disturbing influence
whatever should ba permitted to interrupt

A Scientist Hay* that Man Is Leslies;  the
Use efflls Nose.
We are a discontented race, alwaya
grumbling at the limitations of our knowledge, and not satisfied with the senses wo
admittedly possess. Wo are on the lookout
for various new or nascent avenues to the
mind from the outer world. And all the
e we are quietly letting drop through
disuse one of the few a-jnaca we actually
have. Tho most prominent features in our
faoe does not avail to remind us sufficiently
of tbe " neglected sense" whioh appears to
be steadily retiriug into nullity. In the
Nineteenth Century Mr. Edward Dilliou
calls attention to thia singular fact, " In
man," ho says, " the nerves and brain
centrea that subserve the sense of smell are
poorly developed, in some degree vestigial
structures. It would not be too strong u
statement lo make that in civilized man.
and especially in tho Englishman of tho
present day, the senso remains merely as
the vestige of a vestige,"
THK ART Of l-BHl-miK**..
It Is intensely keen iu several of tho
lower animala. The Japanese, as shown
in their beautiful game of diverse fragrant
wooda, appear to havo developed tho sense
to a higher point than Western nations
havo any conception of. Vet" the olfactory sensations seem to havo an unusually direot path to tho inner working of tho
nervous system." A great part of thc
pleasure ami pain of taste���the aroma of
wine, the flavor of spices���ought to be
credited to the sense of smell. The story
Is toldol a Broton peasant "who invented
an 'art uf perfumes' while musing ovor tho
scents of tho flowers of his native fields.
He claimed to have discovered lho harmonious relation existing between odors.
He oame to Paria with a perfume box of
many compartments, to givo a 'concert of
perfumes,' passed, however, fora madman,
and returning to his native home died in
obscurity. Again, more than ono ingenioua
person has constructed a scale of perfumes,
finding parallels between different scents
and the notes of an octave."
There are, indeed, points of resemblance
between the terminations of tho olfactory
nerve and of the nerve of hearing. "No
sense has a stronger power of suggestion
than smell," and Mr. billion hints that tho
color school ot poets might find connections
between sounds aud scents. He evidently
thinks wo don't get half the good we might
out of our noses. We pay little hoed to the
pleasures to be derived from smell, and are
oareful only to avoid the pains of unpleasant odor, We use our noses not indeed
so much as instruments of enjoyment, but
rather aa a sort of nuisance inspector.

The English I-rlHOiii- Are Declining an

" Full schools mean empty prisons" is
the motto of the writer of an artiole In the
current number of the .Schoolmaster, and
It must be confessed, aays the London News,
that the array of facts and figures with
whioh he furbishes his readers yields abundant support to this emiuently encouraging
doctrine. Far and wide we can see, nay,
cannot if we would help seeing, that our
prisons are, to a considerable extent, disappearing, their sites being for the most
part taken for the erection of model lodging
houses for the poorer classes. " The gaols
havo failed," as some ono has tersely put it*
"for wantof adequatoaupport from the orim"
iual classes, ''and It is significant that they
began to bo iu a bad way when tho Schoo
Hoard Act came Into active operation, and
have gone on declining step by atop as the
number of ohildren on the roll of the primary schools has increased. In 1870, with a
population under 2:1,000,000, wa had io
England and Wales 12,000 primary schools.
Then the number of prisons reached 113.
In 1890 tho population had increased to
nearly 20,000,000, and the primary schoola
to 29,0(0, whilo tho number of prisons had
fallen to less than 00. Roughly speaking,
while the number of ohildren in the primary
aohools had increased in tho period referred
to about threefold the number of thieves or
suspected persons on the roll of the police
records had diminished by nearly one-third,
and this in the faeo of a largo increase In
the population. Well may the writer ask,
who In 1870 would not have looked on the
man as a dreamer who had ventured to
predict that in the ahort space of a quarter
of a century, within a radius of little more
than a milo from Westminster palace, gaols
would bo transformed into play places for

Many People ,4rc Ignorant of Ihe rropr-r
Preeaalloas lo ba Taken.
Every now ani again the report is made
of alleged poisoning from partaking of canned goods, Twice within a short time
reports have oome from Montreal tolling of
poisoning from eating canned tomatoes.
These reports of poisoning from canned
goods are most likely to bo duo to the caro-
less use of tho food. A short time ago the
reported poisoning of a family at Montreal
from eating canned tomales, was trac.nl to
a brass spoon which had been left standing
in the tomatoes over night. Tho tomatoes
were eaten tho first day without injury,
but thoso who partook of the aamo food the
following day were poisoned, thua showing
that the contents of the can wore wholesome when first opened. Investigation
showed that a brass spoon had beon left
standing in the tomatoes ovor night, and
the chemical action of the acid upon tho
spoon waa undoubtedly tho cause of tho
poisoning. It is surprising, after all tbat
has been written about lho uao of canned
goods, how many peoplo are ignorant of
the proper precautions to bo taken in tin*
uso of such commodities. Tho public arc
continually being warned against allowing
tho contents to remain in the cans after
opening, but a great many peoplo will stilt
uso part of tho contents of a can, and set
the oan away for future uao. Canned goods
should bo emptied as soon as opened into a
glass or poroelain vesael. Canned goods
are kept fresh by being perfectly air tight.
As soon as the can is opened and tho contents aro exposed to the air, fermentation
begins, and this acta upou the tin of tho
cans, after which the contents aro not safe
for food. If the cans wore emptied at once
into a glass or porcelain vessel, this danger
would be avoided, and muoh less would be
heard about poisoning from canned goods.
Packers ahould print theso precautions up.

Thc action of the Dominion Government in ordering the suspension ofthe

with thc Victoria post office after they

but that discipline must be maintained,
and that it would have been wiser for the
clerks to have appeared by committee
before the Hoard ol Trade in llie first iu
stance and have obtained their assistance;
nevertheless aa tlie force had returned to
lheir duty, voluntarily, their mistake
should have been condoned, Harshness
to the illy paid clerks and carriers wilj
not commend itself to lhe people whose

members from Victoria should have insisted on fair treatment ofthe post office
employees in the first instance. If tliey
had demanded justice as the price of
their fealty to partv lhey would have obtained it long since. Blind partisan support is what is injuring British Columbia,

and was a protection measure in principle, although not in degree. Cleveland
and his followers stood manfully by the
national platform. The people returned
thc party to power on the pledge of a
tariff for revenue only, and free raw material. The Democratic Senate fought
the Wilson bill, kept the country for a
long period in a state of suspense, des^
troying thc manufacturing industry and
paralysing commence. On Tuesday lhe
people revenged themselves, nnd Democracy lies wallowing in thc mire of a
well deserved defeat, and the doom of

Thc new Exhibition I bill is in great de
mand. On the evening of the 23rd of
November���one week Irom next Friday
���there will be an entertainment in the
hall by thc Courienay and Puntiedge
schools. There will be some novel features introduced, the young girl pupils being organized into a drill brigade forming
a division of the Queen's Own. Gre.il
interest is being manefestcd in the affair,
and as the parents will naturally be on
hand and thc teachers are both deservedly popular, we predict a tremendous turnout. It is safe to predict an entertainment of unusual merit, We believe the
admission will be 50 cents for gentlemen
ancl half that amount for the ladies. The
proceeds of the entcriainmcnt will be
used for obtaining some necessary furniture and appliances for lhe two   schools.
