Washinotox,  Nov.  21.���M-.  Thurston,
the Hawaiian Miniater, thia  evening   (rave
ont the following statement in reply   to the
report of Mr. Blount: "I am urged to make
a statement for   publication,   setting forth
what the position and claims of the Hawaiian
Government   are.    It   would,   however, be
contrary to diplomatic   courtesy   for  me to
publish a statement on such a  subject prior
to informing the United States Government
of the same.    A large portion   of   the published extracts  from   Mr.   Blount's   report
consisted, however, of personal attacks upon
me and   those   associated   with me   in the
Provisional     Government,   impugning   our
veracity, good faith and courage, and charging us with fraud and duplicity.    I  deem it
proper, therefore, to make a personal   reply
to such charges,   confining myself   to statements of fact, of which,  as   principal actor,
I    am     prepared    to    testify     to     before     any      impartial      tribunal.      First,
before stating such facts,  I  desire   to call
attention to Mr. Blount's   method   of   con
structing his report.  Although he in several
places states that I was the leader of the
revolutionary movement, he has never asked
me a question   concerning   the same.    Nor
has he given me opportunity to  make   any
statement, although I have at all times been
ready and willing to do so.     The same is
trie of a large number of other   men   who
took   a   leading   part in the movement   of
January last.    In the second place, his evidence consists   exclusively of prepared affidavits or  of answers  to leading questions
put   by   himself,   at   private   interviews,
no    one    else    being    present    but   the
stenographer.     In no   instance has   there
been any cross   examination   of  witnesses,
opportunity given   to contradict or explain
evidenoe, or to present other evidence.    A
brief examination of the published   portions
of the   reports   shows   numerous   incorrect
statements.        I   shall   endeavor   for   the
present, however, to answer the more salient
points   only.    First,   Mr.    Blount   charges
that the American troops worn landed under
a pre-arranged agreement  wiih   the   committee of saCety, that they   ihould   so land
their troops and assist in t'i,.,..'.verthrnw  of
the   Queen.    In   reply   thereto,   I  hereby
state that at no time did   Mr.   Stevens
Captain Wiltse assure me or the committee
of safety,  or   any   sub-committee   thereof,
that the United States   troops would assist
in    overthrowing   the   Queen,    or   establishing   the   Provisional   Government   and
as a matter of fact that   they   did   not   so
assist, I can prodnce witnesses in support of
this statement of the highest responsibility
in overwhelming numbers, but  Mr.  Blount
has rendered it unnecessary to do so.      The
statements of Mr.   Wundeuburg   and   Mr.
Damon   have   been   put   forward   as    the
strongest evidence in support of Mr. Blount's
contention.    In Mr.   Wundenberg's   statement he says that when  the   committee   of
safety told   Mr.   Stevens   they   were   not
ready to act, he replied:    "Gentlemen,  the
troops of   the   Boston   will   land   at   five
o'clock   whether   you   are   ready or   not."
Their reason for this   reply   and the subsequent landing of the troops is manifest. The
troops were   landed   to   proteot American
oitizens and property in the event of the impending and inevitable oonfiiot between the
Queen and the citizens andjnot to co-operate
with the committee in carrying out its plans.
In faot, the troops did not   oo-operate with
the committee  and   the   committee had no
more knowledge than did the   Queen's Government where the troops   were   going, nor
what they were going to do. The whole gist of
Mr. Damon's long examination is likewise
contained in his statement that when, after
the organization   and   proclamation of   the
new Government, the request was made for
the support of the Uni'.ed  States troops, it
was refused, Lieut. -Commander Swineburne,
the commanding officer sending back  word,

Smith, the Queen was denounced in the
strongest terms, armed resistance and a
counter revolution was opeuly advocated
and ihe Queen's minister of the interior
John Colburn, addressed the meeting, asking their armed support against the Queen.
The Queen's attorney general, Mr. Pater-
son, and her attorney Paul Neuman were
both present taking part in the meeting.
The committee of safety, was publicly then
und there named, and pioceeded forthwith
to organize.
3. At six o'clock on Sunday morning
the 15th, I told Mr. Peterson and Mr. Colburn, two members of the Queen's cabinet,
that the committee intended to depose the
Queen, and establish 'a Provisional Government, that if they would take charge of the
movement, well and good; otherwise thu
committee intended to take aotion on its
own account. They asked for twenty-four
houis in' which to consider the matter. I
declined to wait stating to them that the
oommittee intended to proceed forthwith.
4. The committee met openly that
morning at 10 o'clock with the full knowledge of tihe government of the place of its
meeting. It remained in session during the
greater part of the day. While several
police kept watch on the building from the

had ample military force with which to'have
moved the committee and that but for the
support, of the United States representatives
and troops, the establishment of the Provisional Government would hare beeu impossible. In reply thereto, I hereby
���late that although the presence of
the American troops had a quieting
effeot on the rough characters in the city,
and may have prevented some bloodshed,
they were not essential to and did not
assist in the overthrow of the Queen. The
result of the movement would have been
eventually the same if there had not been a
marine within a thousand miles of Honolulu. In support of this statement, I cite
the following facts:
1. The troops did not land till Monday
night, the 16th of January, after the revolution had been in full progress sinoe the
afternoon of Saturday the 14th, during
whioh time the committee of safety was
openly organizing for the avowd purpose of
overthrowing the Queen.
2. There was absolutely no attempt at
concealment from the Government of the
objections and intentions of the* committee.
3. The Queen, her cabinet and their
supporters were utterly demoralized, suspicious of one another and devoid of leadership.
4. The committee of safety and their
supporters were united; had ample force to
execute their purposes; knew precisely
what they wanted and proceeded with intelligent deliberation, thoroughness and confidence to do it.

mittee without any attempt at concealment
met in my office within two hundred feet of
the police station, Marshal Wilson's headquarters, where the entire police force was
stationed. While the meeting was in progress Wilson came to the office, and asked
to speak to nie privately, and we went into
an adjoining room. Our conversation was
substantially as follows: ���Wilson said, "I
want this meeting stopped," referring to
mass meeting for that afternoon. I replied,
"It cannot be stopped, it is too late." He
said, "Cannot this thing be fixed up in
some way!" I replied, "No, it cannot; it
has gone too far." He said, "The Queen
has abandoned her new constitution idea."
I replied, "How do we know that she will
not tbke it up again as she said she would?"
He said she would not. "1 will guarantee
that she will not, even if have to lock her up
in a i oom to keep her from doing it. And
I'll do it too, if necessary." I replied, "We
are not willing to accept that guarantee as
sufficient. This thing had gone on from bad
to worse, until we are not going to stand it
any longer. We are going to take no chances
in the matter, but settle it now, once
and for all." Wilson than left the office.
He had since stated that he immediately reported to the cabinet and advised the arrest
of the committee, but the cabinet were
afraid and refused to allow it.
6. At two o'clock on the afternoon of
Monday the 16th, a mass meeting of 30,000
unarmed people was held within a block of
the Palace. The meeting was addressed by
a number ot speakers, all denouncing the
Queen. The meeting with tremendous
cheering and enthusiasm unanimously
adopted resolutions declaring the Queen to
be in revolution aud authorizing the committee to proceed to do whatever was nec-
cesBary. The police were present, but no
attempt was made to interfere with the
meeting or to make any arrests. The meeting adjourned ailmist the most intense excitement and the citizens dispersed throughout the town awaiting the further call of the
committee. While this meeting had been
in progress anol her was being held by the
Royalists in the street, within a block of
the armory, which adopted resolutions in
support of the Queen. Never in the history
of Hawaii has there been such a tense condition of mind, or a more imminent expectation of bloodshed and conflict than there
was immediately after the adjournment of
these two radical opposite meetings. Mr.
Blount's statement that the community was
at peace and quiet was grossly inaccurate.
It was at this juncture, two hours after the
adjournment of the above meetings, that
Captain Wiltse and Mr. Stevens, acting
upon their own responsibilities and discre
tion and irrespective of the request or ac
liens of the committee, lauded the troops,
which were distributed iu three parts of the
city, instead of being massed at one point,
as stated by Mr. Blount. The reason that
the Queen's Government took no action
against the committee or its supporters
was that they were overwhelmed by the
unanimous display of indignation and determination shown by the citizens, and were
cowed into submission in the same manner
that the King and his supporters were oowed
under precisely similar circumstances by the
same citizens in June 1887. In support of
the third proposition, that the Queen and
her supporters were demoralized and devoid
of leadership, I submit the following:
1. DuriDg the few weeks prior to the
revolution, Mr, Colburn Minister of the Interior, at the time of the revolution, had
been one of the leaders of the political party
opposed to myself and openly and bitterly
hostile to me personally. My first intimation of the revolutionary intention of the
Queen, was at 9 o'clock on the morning of
Saturday, the 14th, when Mr. Colburn came
to me greatly excited. He told me of the
Queen's intention to promulgate a new constitution and asked my advice. I said to
him, "Why do you not go to the members
of your ewn party." He replied, "I have
no party. Those who have been our supporters are supporting the Queen. The
down town people (referring to the merchants,) have got no use for me, and unless tbe
members of your party and other oitizens
will support us, we are going to resign right
2. At one o'olook on the same day
I met all the members of the cabinet at the
Attorney-General's office. They had just
come from an interview with the Queen, at
which she had announced her" intention of
promalgatiug a new constitution and demanded theii
their support.    They stated that
going out by a separate
entrance. While we weft talking a messenger came from the Queen, requesting
them lo immediately return to the palace.
Peterson and Colburn positively refused to
do so, stating that they did not consider
their lives to be safe there. I shortly after
left them and started down town. After I
had gone about two blocks I was overtaken
by a messenger from ihe cabinet, asking me
to return, which I did. They asked me to
ascertain what support they could expeot
from the citizens, aud formally authorized
me to state tbe condition of affairs to leading citizens and in their behalf to oall for
armed volunteers to resist the Queen. I
immediately proceeded to comply with their
request and wiih the assistance of others
within au hour or two thereafter about
eight leading citizens had sigued a written
statement agreeing to support the cabinet
against the Queen by force.
3. Later the same afternoon, Mr.
Colburn informed me that they had finally
gone to the palace aud held a stormy interview with the Queen lasting over two hours.
He told me he nad no confidence in his colleague, Mr. Peterson, who he believed was
playing double with him and told me to beware of tellingPeterson any thing further. As
a reason for bis doubt s, he said that he knew
nothing of the intention to promulgate a
new constitution, but that while they were
discussing the matter with the Queen she
said, in reply to an objection made by Peterson, "why did you not make this objection before? You had this constitution in
your possession for a month, and raised no
objection to it. Colburn said also that in
reply to an objection made by Mr. Parker,
minister of foreign affairs, she said: "why
did you not tell me this last night
when we were talking over the subjeot."
Colburn further stated to me that at a caucus of their party on the previous Friday
night one of the members of the Legislature,
Koluna by name, had said that if he could
establish the new constitution he would die
happy if he could kill some other man before dying.
4. The Queen was furiously angry
at the refusal of the cabinet to join her ia
promulgating the constitution.
5. When the Queen made the announcement of her failure to promulgate the
oons'itu'ion two of the leading Royalist
members of the Legislature, one in the
I hrone room in the palace and one upon the
stepB of the building addressed the assembled crowd, denounced the Dabinet as
traitors and said that they wanted to shed
blood. One of the members included the
Queen in his denunciation.
6. During    the   entire    time    between
noon of Saturday, i he 14th, and   tin afternoon of" Tuesday  the  17th, when  the Provisional   Government was   proclaimed   the
Queen's cabinet was without a plan of action
and did practically nothing but rush about
the city consulting   with   various   foreign
representatives and citizens of all  parts as
to what they had  better  do, beginning by
asking the American Minister for the sap-
port of   the   American   troops against the
oommittee   of   safety   and   securing  from
the   Queen    of   a  declaration    that   she
would      not     agaiu     attempt   to     abrogate     the     constitution      which      they
hurried into print   and   distributed   broadcast to try and appease the indignation   of
the citizens and break up the proposed mass
meeting."   In support of   the   fourth proposition, that the committee and their   supporters were united, had ample force to  execute  thiir   purpose   and   proceeded   with
deliberation   and   confidence   to do so, Mr.
Thurston      aays      that      an      essential
factor   in     judging   whether     the    force
of the   committee was   sufficient and   their
confidence   in    themselves    well    founded
is to know that the same men under similar
conditions have done so upon previous occasions.    He then reoites the events   of   1887
aud 1889 in Hawaii, when the Royalists and
the organizations of the Provisional Government came into conflict and the latter were
victorious through their own unaided efforts
and says that under such  circumstances the
burden of proof   is   upon   those who claim
that the leaders of the Provisional   Government are cowards, or that   they   are incompetent to organize or successfully  carry out
a revolution against the Royalists in Hawaii.
Thurston Will Get His Passport.
New York, Nov. 22.���A Sun special
from Washington says the reply of Minister
Thurston to some of the more flagrant misstatements contained in the Blount report
and his bold accusations of untruthfulness
against the ex-commissioner have given
great offence to certain officials of the administration who are supposed to represent
the views of the President and Secretary of
State. The indignation of these gentlemen
is so great that they do not hesitate to intimate to friends that Mr. Thurston's passports will be returned by the President. He
is accused of violating all the kuown rules
of diplomatic etiquette and there is a loud
demand from the State Department clique
for his punishment. It c mid not bs learned
last nigh', what ateps the administration
proposes to take, if any, to discipline the
plain-spoken representative of the Provisional Government.
Islands  of Manilla Again  Visited and
Many Lives Los..
Victoria, Nov. 21.���Manilla newspapers
received by the steamship Empress of China-
this morning are full of reports of earth
quake and volcano. "The history of early
October" they say, "is written in streams
of lava. The terrors of the dreadful week
subsequent to Ootober fifth were those of
seventy one and last summer intensified tenfold, for to the people of Albay and Tobaco
the very heavens seemed to be vomiting fire
and destruction aud the terrified inhabitants ran helpless hither and thither
or orouched white and trembling
expecting each moment to be overwhelmed.
The first signs of impending danger were
apparent during the afternoon, when subterranean thunders alarmed the city of
Albay. At half-past seven that evening the
crater of Mayon was seen to be in flames,
and lava and ashes poured in torrents from a
new outlet to the north of the old one but
not so near the summit, threatening the
homes ot those who in fancied security had

Advance Guard of Foreigners Arrive-
Everythlng Points to a Most Successful Exhibition.
Sah Francisco, Nov. 20.���Ground has
been broken for the Anne Hathaway oot-
tage at the Midwinter Fair, which will be
the British headquarters. The site is on
tbe south arm of the fair grounds, whioh
extends along the borders of Strawberry
lake on the south. The grounds will be laid
out in an artistic manner, and as nearly
identical with old English ideas and practices as possible." The box hedges have
already been arranged for, and on
the quaintly designed flower beds
will be planted marigolds, daffodils,
sweet-williams, lads and lassies, and other
flowers that Shakespeare knew. Bards of
Arab merchants, coiiBpicuous by their red
fez, were some of the earliest arrivals from
Chicago this morning. Hadji Raphael
Jackeot Abmajor and Lebin Boubarker are
all most prominent among the merchants
giving their residence as "Cairo street,"
Chicago, and as might be expected they are
here to participate in the Midwinter Fair.
The party represents the advance of a
general pilgrimage from Chicago to Golden
Gate Park of men of all nations. They are
ooming hither in crowds and before the
week iB over it is expected that the oity will
be full of strange looking people from
Europe, Asia, Africa and various Islands.
The demand for roomB in the different hotels
is increasing daily, and accommodations will
soon be exhausted if the advanced demands
continue. The Commissioner General for
Japan, Frank A. Joinsuami, and his private
secretary, Sola, have arrived in the oity and
are making arrangements aa far as possible
for their exhibits at the Midwinter Fair.
Their plans are very comprehensible and require close attention to the details, and it
may be several days will elapse before they
can get into working order.
U. S. Ways and Means Committee.
Washington, Fov. 18.���In the Ways and
Means Committee room this morning all of
the majority members were present for the
first time since the adjournment of Congress.
To-day's deliberations, like those that have
preceded them, were secret. It is understood, however, that the committee first
called up the report ot the subcommittee,
having in oharge the international revenue
schedule. This schedule forms the basis of
the proposed bill and the first business of
the committee was to decide what shall be
done with it. The discussion which followed brought out the fact that there was not
only a diversity of opinion regarding the
proposition to tax incomes, but as to
the amount that might be collected
under a given rate. It was finally deoided
to refer the matter to the treasury officials
for a report, both as to the method of col
lection during and after the war and the
revenue accruing therefrom. The reports
submitted by the various sub committees
referred mainly to the additions that, in
their judgment, may be made to the free
list. It was reported at the oapitol this
afternoon that the committee was likely to
substitute a specific for a mixed duty on all
lines of gloves imported into this country.
The Storms Work.
London, Nov. 21.���Norwegian bark
Mossenben was towed into Yarmouth. She
was found at sea a derelict. Three of her
crew found dead on board, the others are
missing. Reports are received of a number
of persons having perished from Arundel,
Sussex, Peterborough, Northampton, Banbury, Oxford and Cuckley, near Gloucester.
Calais, Nov. 21.���Since yesterday the
bodies of 40 persons who lost their lives
in the storm have been picked up on the
Mexican's on the War Path.
Torreton, Mexico, Nov. 21.���A message
has been received here from Jimmez, on the
line of the Mexican Central Railway stating
that an armed body of Mexicans numbering
390 had left there for the scene of the revolutionary troubles near the Rio Grande
border where they will j oin the insurgents.
It is believed here that the uprising will be
quickly quelled as Federal troops are being
rushed to the front in large numbers.
Want a Shilling More.
Glasgow, Nov. 21.���Sootch miners have
taken heart at tbe success won by their English brethren in their long and bitter fight
against a reduction of wages and at a meeting of the miners' delegates held here to-day
it was deoided that all Scotch miners shall
stop work to-morrow unless the mine owners
agree to an advance in their wages of one
shilling a day.
Influenza Epidemic.
Berlin, Nov. 21.���An epidemic of influenza is prevailing in Upper Silesia. Twenty-
seven deaths from the disease have occurred
at Appleton and at Zeigenhatz the seminary

More Railway Suits.
Denver, Col., Nov. 20���The trial of the
suit of ex-Governor Evans and other stockholders in the consolidated Union Pacific,
Denver and Gulf railway corporations
against the Union Pacific calling for an accounting under an existing agreement, the
awarding of damages and the appointment of a receiver pending the
suit, was begun this moraine before Judge
Hallett, of tbe United States Circuit Court.
Attorneys representing the two railroad
corporations and the United States Government were in attendance to participate in
the contest. Hon. R. W. Bonynge opened
the case by reading the voluminous complaint, which includes the various agreements upon which the suit is brought. In
brief, the claim is made that the Union
Pacific violated these agreements in many
ways, to the serious financial loss of the
stockholders of the plaintiff corporations.
Further Reports of the Storm.
London, Nov. 20.���Reports received from
many points along the coast this evening
show that the gale has spent its fury, although heavy seas are still running. The
list of disasters grows rapidly. Between
Calais and Dunkirk fifty-eight vessels were
ashore at 6 o'clock. Most of them are fishing boats, but two are steamers and seven
or eight are barques. Along the coast near
Calais 17 more dead bodies were recovered this
afternoon. Many houses were unroofed last
night in Calais and Dunkirk, and the streets
were swept clean of obstructions. A lifeboat went out from Dover this afternoon
and rescued eight men from a sinking
schooner. The barque Johanne Marie, sank
off Dungeneas this morning. At Scarborough, on the Yorkshire coast, several houses
were blown down and many were unroofed.
Fifiteen fishing smacks are missing from that
town. The Swedish schooner Djil Mar
foundered near land this morning, but" the
crew were saved.
Powderly Vindicated.
Philadelphia, Nov. 20.���The Powderly
Hayes fight in the general assembly of the
Knights of Labor reached a climax this
afternoon, when the general seoratary-treas-
urer, Hayes, openly withdrew his charges
of malfeasance in office against the Grand
Master Workman and his colleagues, and
the executive board, A. W. Wright and
John Devlin. The general assembly will,

committe's report, which will be reported,
declare the offioe of secretary-treasurer va
oant and vindicate the accused officials.
Lobenguela Wants Peaoe.
Oape Town, Nov. 20.��� Despatches from
Fort Victoria say that Lobenguela has sent a
letter to Major Goold Adams, concerning
the termination of the Matebele war. The
king admits that he himself is willing to
discuss the terms of his surrender. His
young Matebele warriors, however, are still
anxious to fight, and he feels that he may
not be able to restrain them. Major Goold
Adams expressed strong hopes that a settlement will be reached without further hostilities.

THE O. A.'C.
A Plan by Which Old Shrubs May be Renewed ��� Tricking; the Wet-da ���The
Fpnce Question���Value of Regularity
In Milking.
Some farmers doubt whether it would pay
to keep sheep for mutton alone, but experiments recently made at the Ontario Ag*ri-
cultural College demonstrate that sheep may
be kept for mutton alone, with profit, but as
wool is a necessary adjunct to the sheep, a
source of profit is in that direction also.
In the experiments made accounts were
kept of all the items of cost, including the
shepherd's care, original cost of animals, the
use of the mother ewes and the value of their
fleeces, ns well as of food, shelter and interest
of capital, until the sheep were over one
year old. Grades and half bloods were used
for experiments. A half-blood Southdown
cost $11 and sheared six pounds of wool valued
at JS.40. Its carcass weighed 147 pounds
live weight, which sold at six and a half
cents per pound, or S10.20, which shows a
profit of $6.60. A half-blood Shropshire
cost |7 and sheared nine pounds of wool
which sold for $3.40, the carcass weighing 1(10 pounds, its net profit for mutton and wool being $0.32. A half-blood Oxford weighed 187 pounds and sheared eight
pounds of wool, it giving a total profit of
16.02. A half-blood Cotswold weighed 109
pounds, but as it is not a strictly mutton
breed only five cents a pound was obtained
for it, its wool weighing nine pounds, the net
profit being only *ii.75. The common native
cost only $3, sheared five pounds of wool,
weighed ISO pounds, and gave a net profit of
The sheop paid well, even the native show
ing a fair record; but, had wool been the object, a loss would have resulted. The cost
of the native being but f 3, is the only advantage in its favor; but the next smallest cost
and largest profit was with the Southdown.
The experiments show that mutton pays far
better than wool, but they also demonstrate
that a linlf-blood sheep will give nearly
twice as much profit as a native, and that to
raise mutton for the market profitably the
best breeds must be employed.
Renewing Old Shrubs.
In many gardens there are old shrubs that
have evidently seen their best, days, but
which the owner does not like to dig up and
throw away. Why not try the renewal plan >.
Select the best shoot the plant has, and cut
away all the rest of it. Dig about the plant
and remove most of the exhausted roots.
Enrich the soil and make it mellow and
light. In nine cases out of ten you can
secure a healthy plant from the old one in
this way. I know a fanner who renovated
an old row of currants in this way. He cut
out all the old wood and primed the roots.
He spaded up the soil well, and worked manure Into it. Then ho put old mortar, sand
stud the like about the bushes to keep the
weeds from getting a start. He allowed the
hens to wallow in this, nnd they kept the
worms from depositing eggs in the soil and
preying upon the bushes. The first seasou
the canes made a growth of two or three
feet. Only four were left to a plnnt. The
second year he picked off all the blossoms,
and nipped off the ends of the bushes. They
sent out ninny branches, and the third year
be bad a good crop of fine, healthy fruit.
Perhaps it would have been as well to start
new bushes, but he is under the impression
that he gained something by saving a portion of tne old ones.
Unfashionable Hogs,
The kind of hogs that require three or four
yearn to mature, and in that time will attain
enormous size and weight, are going out of
fashion. We do not see so many extra heavy
weights reported in the local papers as we
used to. Insti'.'id. the laudable ambition of
Most fanner *> et pigs that at eight or
nine month.- d ill give a pound of pork
for each day i animal's life.   To do"this
requires good lew ling, not alternate starving
and then surfeiting Kith corn. It is the
pork made by continuous growth at all
times that is most palatable and healthful,
and is most in demand in the market.
THeking the Weeds.
One of the greatest drawbacks to the growing of carrots and parsnips is the slow germination of the seeds, which permits the
young weeds to take possession of the ground
before the carrots and parsnips appear. As
the rows are thereby obliterated it is difficult
to use the hoe. To obviate this sow radish
seed in tho rows with the seed of carrots and
parsnips. As the radish will quickly appear
the rows will be plainly seen, and can be
worked. When the radishes are large enough
they can be pulled out and used on the table.
The Fence QuesttO|l.
All fences likely to cause snowdrifts in
roads should be either movable or so made
that they can be taken down every fall. In
a great majority of 'cases such fences, once
down would stay down. Farmers are every
year learning how to dispense with fences
which ,for the stock that most of them keep,
cost more to maintain than the expense of
soiling the stock would be.
Value of Regularity in Milking.
As much regularity as possible should bs
preserved in milking a cow, both as to time
and in having the job done always by tbe
same person. Each milker has a somewhat
different way of handling the teat, and any
difference is sure to be noticed by the cow,
and affect her quietude and the amount of
milk she will give. Some very nervous cows,
and these are often the best, hold up their
milk wheu a stranger does the milking. This
milk remaining in the udder is absorbed, and
the consequence is that the cow goes dry
sooner than she otherwise would.
Farm Notes.
Mulch your plants with light material that
the air can easily penetrate.
Sheep fatten well in winter, for the farmer has more time to attend to them and
to watch their condition. Wethers should
be kept through the winter and turned off in
early spring.
One cause of failure to secure blooms is injudicious watering, deluging at one time
and withholding at another and paying no
attention to the needs of tbe different varieties.
Washing the trees iu strong soap-suds and
giving them thick coats of whitewash not
only add to the appearance of an orchard,
but is also beneficial to the trees.
The autumn demand for fat Iambs is always good and steady, and they can be disposed of at fair prices at a season of the year
when the farmers are in need of a little
Farmers do not ridge up their land so much
as was common before the days of improved
harvesting machinery. "****"

SAMUEL M. ROBINS, Superintendent
A Northern New York Elder's Reply to a
Committee of Church Folks.
Early in the winter a leading railroad-man
of Cincinnati gave a dinner party, Around
the board were several New Yorkers, who
toward the end of the feast told stories out
of their religious experiences.
"Up in Lawrence County," said a grim-
looking party, grizzly of hair, square of jaw,
and deliberate, as if addressing a jury,
"there was once a worthy elder of the
church named Joe Parker. Joo was a Godfearing man, a good husband and father,
upright in his business as a farmer, and
a most respectable citizen every way.
One day be hitched his team, loaded it with
produce, and went to Potsdam. Night fell,
but Joe did not come home. His family were
greatly alarmed. His son posted with all
haste to Potsdam, only to learn that his
father sold his beans and potatoes and started off homeward a little beforo dusk.
"Search proved unavailing, but the next
afternoon up drove Joe's horse to the gate,
broken-winded and all of a lather. His
master slowly descended to the ground���a
sorry spectacle���his clothes torn, his face
badly bruised, part of bis front scalp missing.
With unsteady steps Joe found his room.
Next day the minister and the other elders of the church called upon him.
"' Brother Parker,' said the man of God
'we visit you to have some explanation or
the extraordinary events which have overtaken you this week.'
'.' 'How long hev I bin a member of the
ohurch, boy and man?'
" 'Forty-six years, my brother.'
" 'Ain't I walked in the ways of the Lord
pootv perpendickler doorin' that time?'
" 'Yea, my brother, few have been privileged to serve the Lord as well.'
" 'Six-and-forty year is a pooty good while,
ain't it?'
" 'Tea, my brother.'
" 'Wa'll, I thought so too, and so I kinder
thought I'd take a day off.'"
The story teller was Thomas Q. Shearman,
the whilom superintendent of Plymouth
Sunday-school.���New York Sun.
Old and Young.
Old age is a relative term. Some men are
old at 40, and others are young at 70. Much
depends upon health, and more, perhaps,
upon temjieranient. The Boston Transcript
describes au amusing little scene in a railway car, as the train was nearing the city.
A gray-haired man, bent with age, took up
his overcoat, hesitated, and glanced nervously about. Then he spoke to a fellow passenger across the aisle.
"I shall be much obliged," he said, "if
you will help me on with my coat."
"Certainly," answered the man thus addressed, as he rose quickly.
"There���owl I'm a little stiff. Thank
you," said the old man. "You are very
kind. Some day you may be old yourself,
and then you will be glad of a younger
man's assistance."
The other passenger laughed. "Perhaps,
sir," he said, "you wouldn't object to telling
me how old you are."
"II Oh no. I'm 63���almost 64," answered the old man, with a sigh.
"Indeed 1" said the other. "So old as thatf
Well, well 11 shall be 71 on my next birthday."
He spoke the truth, but the man of 63
went out of the oar looking as If ho thought
himself the victim of a very poor joke.

"The Iron Port of the World."
Escanaba is the county seat of Delta county, Michigan. It lies at the foot of the great
pine forests, and overlooks Littlo Bay de No-
quet, the headwaters of Green Bay. Five
years since it was practically a village in the
wilderness. To-day finds it a city with a
population of 8,000, lighted by electricity,
having a well-equipped tiro brigade, waterworks with a capacity of 4,000,000 gallons
per day, a high school and three other schools,
six churches, three newspapers, a railway
station where 216 trains arrive and depart
daily, and it will shortly have au electric
street railway in full work. Its annual
retail trade is estimated at $3,000,000, and
its wholesale trade, including iron ore, pig-
iron, lumber, and coal, at about 125,000,000.
According to Mr. Nursey's carefully written report, capable of the f ullost verification,
Escanaba is the greatest iron-port of the
world. He tells us that during the naviga
tiou season of 1800 it shipped 3,700,000 tons ot
Iron ore, or nearly double that of all the ore
ports of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota combined. Its lumber output amounted
to about 120,000,000 feet, while the freight
eapacity of the vessels entering and clearing
from its port exceeded 8,000,000 tons. This
compares with the tonnages of the greatest
seaports of the world, which are: (1) London,
19,000,000; (2) Liverpool, 14,000,000; (3) New
York, 11,000.000, and next comes Escanaba
with 0,000,000 tons���Iron.

Great interest is being manifested In the
Hawaiian question. Yesterday we published a full report of Minister Blount's message
to Secretary Gresham in which he charged
Minister Stevens with having assisted the
revolutionary party in Hawaii to depose thu
Queen by landing American troops and
stationing them in a threatening position
about the palace and Government buildings. This report has brought forth
a reply from Mr. Thurston, the representative of the Provisional Government at
Washington who gives a most emphatic
denial to every count in Mr. Blount's report.
It must be remembered, however, that Mr.
Thurston was one of the ringleaders, if not
the chief, of the revolutionists, and that as
a reward for his services in assisting to
establish the Provisional Government
he was provided with a comfortable billet at Washington. Oo
the other hand Mr. Blount was sent to the
Islands to report on the state of affairs there
in connection with the establishment of the
new Government, iu order that the executive at Washington might know exactly
where the American Government stands in
relation to the whole affair. If Mr. Blount
were at all inclined to be dishonest in the
matter it would certainly not have been in
favor of the Queen's party in Hawaii became
in that case his Government would
have everything to lose and nothing
to gain. The movement against the Royalist,
party in Hawaii seems to have been direct
ed by a lot of ad\ jnturers in the hopo of
gaining wealth and position through the
successful termination of their sohemes.
From what has transpired during the past
few days it is evident that they were on-
oouraged and assisted by the representative
of the United States with the full knowledge and consent of President Harrison
and Secretary FoBter. This unwarranted
interference on the part of tbe United States
with the rights and independence of a friendly power not numerically strong enough to
successfully combat the forces of auch a
powerful nation was a contemptible piece of
business io say the least. It is satisfactory
to note, however, that it has not the sanction of the whole of the American
people and the action of President
Cleveland in restoring Hawaii to
its former political status while it may
not now be received with general favor
in the United States will commend itself to
all right thinking honest men. The result
of tbe Republican form of government in
small nations has not been satisfao
tory. The only exception to this
statement is perhaps Switzerland
Brazil enjoyed undisturbed quiet
and happiness under a monarchy; since its
downfall she has experienced almost a
ohronic state of revolution. And so it has
been with South and Central America
Once in the possession of the political
schemers who are ever plotting for personal
aggrandisement, security of peace and happiness seems to vanish.
Ever since January last, ships leaving
Yokohama for Japaneae and foreign porta
have frequently sufferad from theft, says
the Gazette. Numerous reports had reached
the authorities of passengers losing their
money or artioles. Indeed in May, while
Mr. Amano Ko, a member of the Japaneae
Commission at the World's Fair, who was
about to leave for America, waa bidding
farewell on deck to his friends who had
oome to see him off, his Gladstone bag,
whioh he had left in the cabin, disappeared,
and as it oontained his passport, chequebook, and other important articles, he was
nnable to leave by that ship, and had to
wait for the next mail. In tha same
month a foreigner was served in a similar
manner. A strict searoh was made for
the onlprit and not long ago a book, known
to have been stolen from a foreigner on
board, was discovered by a detective at a
aeoondhand dealer's, Endo Ko's, in Hatsu-
necho, in this oity. With this due, tbe
thief was successfully traced, as Endo confessed he had got the book from Tsujimura
Senzo, of Snyeyoshicho. Senzo lives in a
respectable style. His house is of medium
size; and he has a long array of plants in
pots, and is said to live like a gentleman.
The freedom with whioh he spent his money
had exposed him to the suspicion of the
polioe, but as they had no proof against him
ei any doubtful nature, he was unmolested.
As, however, he was traced as the thief who
stole from ships, he was arrested on Snnday.
He has confessed his crimes,and also admits
that many of the stolen articles are still in
his house.
The Montreal Gazette points out that the
platform of the Ottawa Liberal Convention
is rejected even by the Liberals. Only a
littla time ago the Montreal Herald spoke
out in favor of a Dominon manhood suffrage
law with simple registration, which was
very muoh opposed to the declaration of the
convention on the franchise issue. Now,
Mr. J. X. Perreault, also a good Liberal, in
a letter on the federal surplus, putB in a
plea for the maintenance of such a tariff aa
will prevent the workingmen of Canada
from being brought down "to the level of
the starving and famished laborers of the
old countries." He further characterizes as
a patriotic policy the maintenance of a
tariff that will "protect home labor against
foreign competition." Mr. Perreault is evon
more radically opposed to the convention's
tariff idea than the Herald is to the suffrage
Li Minerve deals with the attacks of
La Patrie upon the Sulpicians in the
proper vein. The seminary is being abused
beoause it contributed funds for the maintenance of British troops during
the Napoleonic wars. La Minerve
points out that this was merely the fulfilment of a patriotic duty on the part
of a body owing allegiance to the crown of
England. "That crown," it says, "has
gsven us a larger sum of liberty than France
could give then or now offer us. Under its
protection we have been able to remain
Catholics, and still reflect credit on the old
French blood." La Minerve, we are persuaded, represents the best sentiment of
A French phycisian claims to have discovered a method whereby tobacco may be
rendered harmless to the person who may
use it. His process is as follows: "A piece
of cotton wool steeped in a solution of
pyrogallic acid inserted in the pipe or cigar-
holder' will neutralise any possible effect of
the nicotine. In this way not only may the
generally admitted effects of smoking be
prevented but cirrhosis of the liver, headache and furring of the tongue may be
The fact that the English sloop-of-war
Champion sailed from Esquimau on the 8th
for Honolulu shows that John Bull ia not

vacillation about doing it as has been shown
by the Cleveland Administration. ��� San

built upon the mountain side. Smoke was
seen issuing from the old crater and most
alarming subterranean noises were heard
on every hand. It seemed as though
the very earth would split in twain.
The eruptions reached their greatest height
inclining in a south westerly direction and
the torrent of devaBtatiou continued to flow
with unabated fury until the eighth. Over
Albay that morning all was darkness,
broken only by the great torohlight of May-
on, for the cloud of ashes hid the sky. The
accumulation of lava up the mountain side
reached and grew above the limit
line of former years and like a terrible
serpent commenced a descent upon the village of Banquerahan beneath. The inhabitants seemed for the most part petrified by
terror, aud watched with staring eyes the
great molten mass creep nearer and nearer,
A few of the braver spirits moving among
them exhorted them to flee for their lives,
and these were in a great measure successful
in their efforts, for the destruction moved
slowly. Little property was saved, however, and the greater part of the town now
lies beneath an uneven lake of cooling
lava, where a few weeks since was a
busy town and prosperous settlement, The
whole surface of the mountain by the
eleventh was buried deeply in ashes and
lava; one large stream had spread to the
westward and another south-east. Tbe sky
was obscured by ashes and smoke but the
eruption was decreasing in intensity though
subterranean thunders were still audible.
At last advices, on the morning of the
twelfth the eruption was practically over
though there were signs of a re-oontinuance.
No statement, even approximate, coald be
formed as to the fatalities. The loss of life,
however, is not thought to be more thau
one hundred souls.

London, Nov. 21.���In the House of Commons to-day, Sidney Buxton, parliamentary

wonld be treated with consideration if he
Mr. Walter McLaren, memhcj for the
Crewe division of Cheshirs, who is a Radical
in favor ot political and religious equality
without distinction of sex or creed, moved
to include among the electors mentioned
in the Parish Councils Bill, that
married women would be entitled
to vote if they were single. The Right
Hon. Henry Fowler, local Government
president of the Board, made a counter proposition to disqualify married women except
when they are duly qualified as rate-payers.
The Right Hon. Leonard H. Courtney
(Unionist) member for the Bodmin division
of Cornwall said he thought Mr. Fowler's
proposition commendable for its simplicity.
The Right Hon. Sir Henry James, Unionist
member for Bury, said that though hitherto
he had opposed the giving of tbe
privilege to vote to women for
party purposes, he sonsidered the
proposal moderate, as before a woman could
obtain the right to vote she must be rated.
If �� woman lived with her husband, the
latter must be rated. They were, therefore,
dealing with the question of married women
living apart from their husbands. The
Bight Hon. A. J. Balfour, Conservative
leader in tbe House, held that the change
proposed was an important departure. If
the House assented to the Government pro
posal, it would give up all hope of drawing a
distinction between married and single
women, not only in relation to munioipal
franchises, but in relation to parliamentary
matters.   Mr. Fowler withdrew his motion.

The officials do not believe that Pendleton
stole the money, but think that it was some
of his olerks who made away with the
13,600. Pendleton is just getting sobered
up, and he insists that the most he ever
spent in one day was 91-25, It is expected
that othr arrests will soon be made.

French Chamber of Deputies.
Paris, Nov. 21.���At the opening of todays session of the Chamber of Deputies, M.
Cociesem Peirra, president cf the House,
made a short speech of congratulation upon
the franco-Russian alliance. M. Dupuy
then read the government programme. The
ministry, he said, would oppose the proposition for the separation of church and
state, the country not having returned a
majority in its favor, it would also combat
tbe re-establishing of the system of voting
by list, justifying this stand on the results
obtained by the district voting and would
oppose an inquisitory progressive income
tax. Continuing M. Dupuy said that the
government would oppose seralists and
other collectivists who are aspirsing to substitute tyranny for individual liberty,
It would allow no change to be made
in the education or military laws, which
were leading features of the Republican
legislation, and were necessary to support
the laws. The Prime Minister promised
that bills would be introduced providing for
hygienic reforms; the care of abandoned
children; the establishment of co-operative
serais in which laborers should share in the
profits; the conversion of -U per cent.
rentes, part for the reform of the alcohol
tax; for the settlement of the Bank of
France question; for a reorganization of the
police, so as to give the public solid guarantees against the anarchists, and for the
regulation of the manufacture, sale
and transportation of explosives.
Measures respecting the liberty
of association were also promised. The programme is an essentially moderate progressive one and its announcement was greeted
with cheers by the supporters of the Government. M. Dupuy, upon finishing his
reading, invited the chamber to immediately discuss the programme. A vote was
taken on the question and it was cairied,
291 to 221. M. Jaures, Socialist, opened
the discussion. The statements just made
by the Prime Minister were, he said, a
declaration, not a programme. M. Dupuy
had merely announoed a war against the

��� New Ilrnnch of the Florist's Buslnesa���
Roses Cheap at (ilbraltar.
There is a sign over the door of a
florist in New York which says: "Flowers by Telegraph to All Parts of the
World." This sign seems sufficiently
extraordinary to warrant inquiry into
its exact meaning. The Rental eye
saw baskets of roses whizzing across
the country, so the owner of the flower
store was interviewed by a World
writer upon the subject, and he said:
"Yes, flowers by telegraph sounds
strange, but it is nevertheless quite possible, and done in a perfectly simple
way. Here is how it is managed: We
have arranged with one of the leading
florists in every city in this country and
Europe, so that when any of our customers come, write or telegraph to us
and tell us to send flowers to some
friend in another city we at once telegraph the order to our correspondent
and have it filled immediately. We
charge the cost of telegraphing or
cabling to our customer. The scheme
has only just been started, but its
working has surprised and delighted
both* ourselves and our customers. My
partner is in Europe now establishing
new stations, and we hope to have a
complete belt around the world soon.
"An amusing incident happened in
Gibraltar. A young woman had sailed
from New York on an Italian steamer
and an admirer wanted a bunch of roses
sent to the ship when she arrived off
Gibraltar. Ten dollars was the amount
he invested. I telegraphed my correspondent to go out in the boat with the
flowers and have them handed over the
side of the ship. Now it seems that
flowers are very abundant in Gibraltar,
and the florist had never received so
large an order before. 1 forget how
many dozen roses were secured, but
they almost filled the small rowboat,
aud the effect was as if a flower bed
were floating out from the rock. The
boat attracted great attention from the
ship, and all the passengers flocked to
the side to watch the flowers approach.
Of course there was great curiosity to
know whom all this floral display was
for, and when the name of Miss Evans,
I believe that was the young lady's
name, was called out, she became uncomfortably conspicuous. Devotion
represented by a boat load of flowers
must be that of something more than
friendship. The young lady was an object of interest the rest of the voyage."

Here is the latest hunting story as related by a correspondent of Fopest and
Stream: "That reminds me of the way
they catch rabbits in the upper peninsula of Michigan. The hunter goes out
just at dusk and builds a large fire at
the edge of a cedar swamp, then retires. The rabbits, seeing the light,
are attracted in large numbers. Finding the fire warm and agreeable, they
sit around until the fire burns out.
The snow, being warmed and melted,
freezes rapidly, and very soon the rabbits find themselves frozen fast. In
the morning the hunter comes armed
with a club and knocks them on the

Tagless Dogs.
Complaints have been frequently made of
the dog nuisance. Our streets are filled
with useless curs, and better bred ones too,
who make a practice of rushing out and
barking at every paaeing vehicle. On Monday nifcht this habit ntarly led to a very
serious accident. A curly coated retriever
���prang out at a pastiing horse and buggy,
barking with all his might. The horse took
a sudden sby and nearly landed the occupants of the buegy in the street. It was,
therefore, with great satisfaction that the
general public saw Mr. Enoch Sage, pound-
keeper, armed with tho necessary implements of his offioe, starting out yeaterday on a general round up of taglesa
and unlicensed doga. One of the first dogs
to come within the grip of the persuading
hook was "JNii*." But this canine has qualities peculiar to himself and is keenly alive
to any alight imposed upon him. "Nik"
made good his escape but enquiries resulted
in showing that his tag waa paid for, though
not attached to his collar. A lordly St.
Bernard escaped confinement by his master
redeeming him with the payment of a
license. Other dogs did not fare so well.
Legion was the number of those that were
gathered in. It is to be hoped that the
good work so well begun will daily continue
until this dog nnisance is efficiently put a
���top to.

S. M, when the deposition* taken by Mr.
McCrae will be simply read over to him but
the prisoner will be given the opportunity
of cross examining the witness. Should
Mr. Planta decide that s.prima facie case
has been made out and that the prisoner
must be sent for trial, Shuck will probably
be next taken before His Honor Judge Harrison who will interrogate the prisoner as to
whether it is his wish to be tried summarily
before His Honor or be sent up for trial to
the General Court of Oyer and Terminer
and General Gaol delivery. Mr. C. H.
Barker will appear for the prisoner.
An Important Capture.
Chas. Robinson, a notorious thief, was
captured last night by Sergeant Gibbs and
placed in the cells for safe keeping. Three
weeks ago two dozen pairs of rubbers were
stolen from the N. B. P. Sooiety's store,
and again on Saturday night last coats
were taken, The matter was placed in the
hands of the city police, with the result as
stated above. Strgt. Gibbs, upon receiving
the information, was not long in locating
his man, as he had had the same gentleman
under casual surveillance for some time past.
When arrested several articles stolen by
Robinson were iound on hia person and in
his room, together with the twelve price
tickets of the coats taken from the Cooperative Store. The evidence was so
strong against the prisoner that he admitted
his guilt at once. A short time ago Robinson served sixty days in Victoria for desertion from H.M.S. Royal Arthur. He is
alio wanted at Duncan's for theft. Sergeant
Gibbs deserves credit for the prompt manner in which he captured hia man.
Texada Island Minerals.
Mr. Alfred Raper has adopted a novel
and effective way of bringing before the
public notice the rich deposits said to exist
Upon Texadr, Island. He has placed on
view at the "Windsor" a small collection of
minerals, within a neat cabinet, representing the undeveloped wealth of Texada Island. Among tne collection are specimens
of gold, silver, lead, copper, galena, zinc,
Iron, arsenic, tin and not least among them
black marble whioh is said to be without its
equal on the coast. Mr. Raper knows aa
much, probably, concerning these deposits
as anyone in this country. He had done
considerable prospecting and has had many
assays made of these deposits, some of which
have been of great richness. He is very
sanguine of ultimate success and says that it
is only a matter of time when all he haa
written and spoken of Texada Island will be
an accomplished fact.
Words and Signs Have Been Known to
Make Strong Men Faint.
A great deal has recently been said
about the discomposure of the British
commander in chief in Malta at the
presence of a eat. This is no novelty,
for, according- to the Illustrated London
News, some of the bravest and most distinguished men the world has ever seen
have entertained a similar antipathy.
The Emperor Ferdinand would bleed at
the nose if he heard a eat mew. Henry
III. of France and the duke of Sehom-
berg- had similar weaknesses. This dislike to the gentlest anil most domestic
of animals is unaccountable. But there
have been much stronger aversions.
Erasmus, though he lived at Rotterdam, was thrown into a fever if he
smelled fish. Joseph Sealiger had a perfect horror of milk. Casaan grew sick
at the sight of eggs, however fresh.
I'l-ulislaus, king of Poland, was similarly affected if he saw an apple. Boyle
could not listen to the sound of water
running through a pipe; his house was
probably unprovided with the newest
improvements. La Mothe de Vayer
could not endure music, though "he
took the liveliest pleasure in thunder."
John Rol, of Alcantara, would swoon
if he heard the word lana (wool) pronounced, though he had no objection to
the material itself. The author of "The
Turkish Spy," tells us he would rather
meet a lion face to face than feel a
spider crawling over him in the dark.
This he humorously attributes to transmigration. "Before I came into my
present body," he says, "perhaps I was
a fly." This is quite as reasonable an
explanation of his antipathy as can be
given by any of them. Even Shakespeare, though he gives several examples
of this riddle, offers no solution of it.
New Temperance Society.
Meeting to-night, at St. Alban's Hall, to
organize a branoh of the Churoh of England
Temperance Society. Thia society includes
two sections: Those who are pledged to promote Temperance, and those who pledge
themselves to total abstinence from intoxicating liquors. The meeting and society
are open to all whether belonging to the
Church of England or not.
Proclaimed Emperor of Brazil.
London, Nov. 20.���The Debats newspaper
Paris, announced to-day that Prince Pierre,
Dom Pedro's grandson, who ia said to have
been proclaimed Emperor of Brazil by
Admiral Mello, took a train from the St,
Lazara station at 11:30 yesterday morning
for St. Nazaire, where he waa to embark for
Brazil. The Prince was accompanied,
acoording to the Debats, by a suite of 25.
The United Press oorrespondent in Vienna
telegraphs that the story published by the
Debats is probably incorrect. Prinoe
Pierre ia said to have been seen this morn'
ing at the Nedustadt military school, whioh
he has attended regularly for some time.
The United Press oorrespondent in Vienna
went to Nedustadt military school this afternoon and in company with the Governor,
Count Blome, visited Prince Pierre in his
apartments. The prince, the correspondent
says, is a lively, healthy young man, with
dark hair aod eyes. His left arm ia
weak and almost as useless as the
German Emperor's. To-day he wore the
ichool uniform. Count Blome said he was
subjected to the same striot dioipline as iB
maintained amongst the other cadets.    He
goes out once a week on some excursion with
is cousin and fellow pupil, Prince Emmanuel, ion of the Duke D'Alenoon. All other
excursions or vilits are forebidden. Prince
Pierre doei not follow politica and he is
quite uninformed concerning the course of
events in Brazil. He frequently receives
letters from his parents, but these letters do
not refer to publio affairs. The prinoe ia a
favorite amongst the instructors. At present
he is learning the Polish language.

Some Reasons Why Guests Are Compelled
to Pay High Pricea.
Leading American hotels carry upon
their annual expense account from one
thousand to fifteen hundred dollars
chargeable to paper, envelopes, matches
and toothpicks supplied to guests and
strangers. Strangers use more of them
than the guests. A square box, in which
are kept a dozen necessary things���such
as cards, matches, envel opes and toothpicks���stands on the counters of most
hotels. This box has to be constantly
replenished. The proprietor of a large
city hotel furnishes some interesting
information regarding the way in which
his hotel is systematically robbed by
guests and strangers. Five hundred
envelopes and one thousand sheets of
paper are required daily. Strangers appear at the desk, and with the utmost
coolness ask for writing materials,
which are usually furnished if the person is respectable in appearance. It
is a common thing to see strangers enter a hotel writing-room and till their
fountain pens from the ink bottles.
Blotting-paper given away costs ten
dollars a month. Every visitor to the
hotel believes himself entitled to toothpicks and matches. He takes a handful of the former and fills his pocket
matchbox with the latter. It costs fifteen dollars a month to supply these
trifling articles. Pens and penholders
and ink bottles disappear at the rate of
a dozen a day. Everyone seems to consider that hotels and their belongings
are their property, and that the proprietors have no rights worth considering.
Women who are models of thrift and
neatness in their own homes are constantly careless here. I have seen a mother stand her children upon fifty-dollar
chairs to look out of the windows, and
laugh at them when they jump up and
down on two hundred-dollar sofas.
Furniture upholstered in the most delicate colors and textures will be used in
the most reckless manner. A woman
will slam her street shoes or damp umbrella on it; put empty plates on it
when meals are served in her rooms; or
throw oranges or bananas on it when
she comes from the dining-room���it is
all the same. Did you ever notice what
a distinctly weary appearance hotel
furniture soon assumes? These are
some of the reasons why hotel bills
come high.
The  Six  Methods   by   Whloli   the   Sweet
Odors Aro Ohtnmed.
Six methods of extracting perfumes
are known, says the Soieuoe Monthly.
The first is expression by means of a
special press, which is applicable without too great loss to fruit skins rich in
essential oils, such as orange and citron peel, previously grated. Another
method is that of distillation, which
consists of heading flowers with water
in a boiler. The essential oil is volatilized nnd is condensed with the vapor of
water in a worm and Florentine receiver. The water usually goes to the
bottom and the oil floats. The oils of
neroli, rose, patchouli, geranium, lavender, caraway, etc., are obtained in
this way. The process is not applicable to the delicate perfumes of the
mignonette and the violet, and for
them recourse is had to maceration of
the flowers in animal fat or mineral
oils, which have the property of absorbing odorous substances, and are then
washed in alcohol. The flowers are
usually heated in the fat or the oil for
a variable number of hours. For perfumes which cannot endure a high temperature the petals are placed between
framt s of glass coated with fat. This
is the process of enfleurage. The pneumatic process, which consists in causing a current of perfumed air or carbonic acid to be absorbed by coatings of
lard on glass plates, appears not to
have given satisfactory results. Another process consists in dissolving perfumes in very volatile liquids, like sul-
phuret of carbon, chloroform, naphtha,
ether or chloride of methyl, and volatilizing the solvents, which can be done
at a low temperature in a vacuum. The
last method has given very satisfactory
results in the extreme delicaCy and
great accuracy of its returns.

Th. Hardy Chrysanthemum   Exhibition.
this Fall.
The chrysanthemum bears the same relation to November as the rose does to June,
and is justly termed tbe queen of autumn.
Ten year- ago the popularity of the chrysanthemum was confined to Europe, Japau
and Chiua, but since that time great strides
have been made in the cultivation of the
beautiful flower in this country. Europe's
careful cultivation has been infectious, end
it is doubtful if the flowers of Canada and
the United states, as exhibited at the shows
this fall, havo been much surpassed the wide
world over.
At the T.irouto show���the first held in the
province���the variety and beauty of the
plants shown were beyond all praise. In all
tbe old and well known varieties the show
was a success, while in new ones
auch as the Louis Boehmer, the ThiBtlo,
the Blanc, the Fabiau de Mediana
mads a great show. That illustrated is the
new type of the Japanese anemone chrysanthemum, a white flower with a yellow centre, and is distinct from all other varieties
In having low pendant filaments. The cultivation of these beautiful flowers Is becoming more popular day by day.

An Eccentric Editor.
There is an editor of a certain morning
paper who is nothing if not original, and who
���corns the hackneyed vernacular of his
brethren of the press. Even the pigeonholes which surmount his desk show symptoms of this idiosyncrasy. Instead of being
labeled, as is usually the case, "Accepted M
a" and "Rejected MB." they aro marked
"Hades" "Purgatory"aud "Paradise." It is
significant to note that, while "Hades" is
generally full to overflowing, the manuscripts
in "Purgatory" (i. e. for further consideration) srow beautifully less, while those in
"Paradise" quite appropriately recall thp
visits of tho lieings who people heavenly regions, inasmuch as they are few aud far between.���[New York Commercial Advertiser.

Gleanings From Various Fields,
A correspondent, who asked for the best
aud cheapest way to utilize bones for fertilizing a clayey soil, was answered as follows by the Farmers.' Advocute:
Take a hogshead or large box, or any
other receptacle of suitable dimensions,
oover tbe bottom say two inches deep with
wood ashes, then put ou a layer uf bones,
then more usbes, using enough to keep the
boues from touching each otber, or, iu other
words, having each inilivulu.il boue completely surrounded by ashes, tnen more boues
and' so on until the receptucle is tilled, or
the desired amount obtained. Let this stand
six months, or uutil the bones will crumble
easy, aud apply anywhere from leu to
tweuty bushels per ucre us muy be desired
or required. It must be understood thut
'his is u special aud not a complete fertiliser, containing only ph ospboiic acid and
potash, uud will only prove beneficial to
leguminous plants, unless the soil already
contains sufficient nitrogen, or is applied iu
conjunction with nitrogenous immures.
It is very easy to be misled by tbe experience of others in the matter of special
fertilizers, as what proves beneficial on
oue soil may not do so on auother. A complete fertilizer, such as baru-yard manure, is
beneficial to all soils, as no difference what
may be deiicient, the complete fertilizer^
wiil supply it, while the special fertilizer
may coutam what the soil most requires, or,
on the other hand, what it least requires.
Iu the case of clayey land, as that of our
correspondent, it is more than likely that
nitrogenous niauures would be required in
connection with tbe bones and ashes, but
that could only be determined by au examination of the soil or by experiment. 11 the soil
is of a dark color, tbe experiment is well
worth trying, aud if a leguminous crop, as
peas, beans, clover, etc., is to be grown, the
ashes and bones would prove beneficial, as
these pianis seem to be ubie to draw sufficient nitrogen from the atmosphere, when
supplied with sufficient phospuonc acid aud
potash. This was never limy conceded by
agricultural scientists uutil the recent experiments of Sir J. B. Lawes and Dr. Gilbert, confirmed by the Herman investigators.
Professor Hellriegel and Dr. Wilfarth
demonstrated it so fully that there was little
room left for doubt.
Protection oi Fruit Trees.
M. W. Murphy writes to the Prairie Farm.
er giving an account of the remedy he has
used for excludiug mice and rabbits fiom
his 4U0 trees, since which he has had ou
of them injured. He makes u wash of half
a gallon of soft soap aud half a pound of
sulphur to a pail of water, and puts it ou
with a cloth by tbe baud.
Home twenty yeais ago, the late M. B.
Bateham published his remedy for the
peach grub, consisting of carbolic soap. He
dissolved five pounds of the soap in eight
gallons of hot water, and then a barrel of
water was added, 'ibis was enough for a
thousand trees, at a cost of half a cent a
tree. It was applied early in July. He
used it with entire success ou 3,0011 trees.
Auother remedy is to use paper coated with
grattiug wax, which is applicable only to
young trees. The paper is wrapped about
tbe stem so as to reach a foot high. The
wax causes it to adhere to the stem without
tying. Any grubs must be taken out before the wrapping is performed. It may
be applied to young trees before setting
them out. It may be reuewed every spring.
Uulike tarred paper, it cannot injure the
trees.       ��� __
Since We Must Die.
Though we must die, I would not die
When fields are brown and bleak,
Wheu wild geese stream across the sky,
And the cart lodge timbers creak,
For it would be so lone and drear
To sleep beneath the  snow,
When children carol Christmas  cheer,
And Christmas rafters glow.
Nor would I die, though we must die,
When weanlings blindly bleat,
When cuckoo laughs, and lovers sigh,
Aud 0, to live is sweetl
When cowslips come again and Spring
is winsome with their breath,
And Life's in love with everything.
With everything but Death.
Let me not die, though we must die
When bowls are brimmed with cream,
When milch cows in the meadows lie,
Or wade amid the stream;
Wheu dewy-dimpled rotes smile
To see the face of June, -
And lad and lass meet at the stile,
Or roam beneath the moon,
lince we must die, then let me die
Wheu flows the harvest ale.
When the reaper lays the sickle by
And taketh down the flail;
When all we prized and all we planned,
Is ripe and stored at last,
And Autumn looks across tht land,
And ponders on tht put:
Then let ma die.
The First Panorama.
The panorama was invented by a Scotchman named Robert Barker, who obtained a
license in London in 1787 and erected a
rotunda on Leicester Square. He was associated with Robert Fulton, the practical inventor of the steamboat, who introduced
panoramas into Paris in 170(1, but resigned in
favor of Thayer, perhaps iu order to give his
attention to the application of steam to
boats. Thayer raised a rotunda on the
Boulevard Montmartre, whence comes the
name of tho Passage des Panoramas,
Bonaparte caused plans to be drawn
up for eight panoramas in which
hit conquests were to be shown to
Parisians, whom he always tried to imprest
with the magnitude of his achievements
in order to keep them faithful to his star.
But these projects were never realised. The
legend of Robert Barker is us follows: He
was imprisoned for debt at Edinburgh in a
cell with one opening <>uly, and that in one
corner of the roof of the dungeon. It was so
dark that he could not see to read, but sV
found that by placing the paper near tha
narrow shaft of light that fell through tht
hole in the ceiling the letters of the writing
became surprisingly distinct. This set him
thinking, aud after he was released he began
experiments on pictures strongly ligbj|at

I'd go without my "feed" for htr<
I'd shoot for her,

Fuoh is tbe love I leal far her:

But haug me if I'd die tor her.

For Safe Keeping.
Mr. H. Hilton was placed under restraint
last  evening���in   the   gaol.    It  is pretty
generally known that for some time past he
as been suffering from mental aberration.
It was not thought, however, that his mental iafiimity would give riBe to any trouble.
On Tuesday night Mr. Hilton having some
financial grievance against a neighbor whom
he imagined was in some deep plot against
his welfare. His indignation against hie
neighbor found practical exemplification in
demolishing his windows and so forth. To
prevent any further damage being done and
as much as anything in the interests of the
unfortunate gentleman himself he was last
night conveyed by Constable Brown on
authority of a warrant to the Provincial
gaol. In past years Mr. Hilton was known
as an honest upright gentleman and his
many friends will regret to learn of the
oalamity which has befallen him.
Last night at the Opera House the curtain
rang up on the play "The Little Maverick,
Katie Putnam in the leading role. The
Little Maverick is a melodrama in four acts
sparkling with humor and ending in pathos.
Miss Putnam did exceeding well in the leading character and fully sustained her well
deserved reputation. The other parte were
all well represented especially by Messrs.
Hart, Cohase and Cora Findlay in their respective characters of "Peter Bunker a
Texan Rancher," Hans Stransa a German
servant and Hiram Corson the Villain in the
play. The house was well filled and frequently contributed with well merited applause.
Katie I'ntnam ia a guest at  the Windsor.
Joseph Hunter, M.P.P., it at the Wilson.
"The Story of a Kiss" is conceded to be
the greatest comedy drama ever written.
Madeline Merli certainly possesses the divine spark, which is fanned to a perfect
flame in the quarrel scene. Rage, hate,
emotion, pride, keen sarcasm, jealousy and
love she portrays in less than seven minutes.
But, like many Italians, she possesses a
wonderful amount oi feeling and power, and
is equal to the task.
The time is fast approaching when really
successful plays must deal with some great
question of the day. "The Story of a Kiss,"
which Madeline Merli and company will
present next Friday is a play with a moral.
Miss Merli claims it is not what we do but
what we resist that is a test of morality; the
question iB admirably handled in Emile
Zola's play, and it should of itself command
a full houee, regardless of Miaa Merli's
talent and beauty. Reserved seats on sale

Bank Defalcations.
Seattle, Nov. 21. ���C. M. Atkins, cashier First National Bank, W hat.com,was before
U. S. Commissioner Sprigge, in this city
this morning in answer to a charge of
embazzlement for $3,600 hundred. During
the financial depression last summer tht
bank became insolvent and the comptroller
appointed a receiver for the bank. The
receiver investigated the affairs of the bank
and stated that the former cashier could not
satisfactorily account for some of the transactions. An order was received to begin
legal proceeding! and Deputy Marshall Mediums acting under Commissioner
Spriggs ordered Atkins arrested. He
went before Ii. S. Commissioner Williams
of Whatcom and gave bail in the sum of
$1,000. Full complaint waa continued for
one week. Atkins gave a new bond in the
sum of $3,600. The witnesses for the Government were allowed to go on their own
recognizances. Percy Lloyd, formerly assistant cashier of the bank, was placed
under $500 bonds with surety for his appearance as witness for the Government at
the trial next Tuesday.
Boom Burst.
Seattle, Nov. 21.���A Spokane special
eaya: The scene at Shantytown has changed.
Ont of the thousands of armtd men, determined to protect property at the cost of
somebody's life, few remain. A few boomers are scattered over the land. Occasionally a man is sitting in front of a half built
shack with a Winchester looking as determined as last night. Occasionally a woman
can be Been with a half frozen baby in her arms
and one or two more holding on to her skirts
and complaining bitterly of the cold, while
the husband and father is nailing up the side
of his house. About fifty families are left
who have suffered terribly from the cold and
snow, Lawyers went up again this morning
but there was no such harvest for them, as
there was yesterday. Twelve hundred transfers have been made so far not one of which
is worth a cent. A despatch from St. Paul
says there is no question about the railroad
company's title to the property. The great
majority of the boomers are swearing vengeance on the men who started the boom.
There may be trouble in setting those hold-
ing property off it, but auy danger of a
riot ia practically over.
