Imperial Engagement and Royal Wedding.
Cobdkq, April 21.���The betrothal of the
Grand Duke Nicholas,Czarewitch of Russia,
to Princess Alix, of Hesse, is announced.
The Prince of Wales has joined the St.
John's Lodge of Free Masons of Gotha. In
doing so the Piiuce expressed the hope that
there would be olose and personal relations
between the German and English Free
Masons.
It had originally been intended , that the
Royal marriage should be c.leLr ;oed in the
Moritz Kirche, the pi inoipal churoh of t he
town, but at the request of Queen VioU ria,
it was deoided at a family council that the
ceremony should be solemnized in the palace
chapel. This had been magnificently decorated with royal standards and flowers, and
the magnificent toilets of the ladies, combined with the brilliant military uniforms
of the guests, created a magnificent
ensemble, The oeremony was after the rites
of the Lutheran church. Grouped around
the altar were Queen Victoria, the Emperor
William, the Empress Augusta Victoria.tho
Empress Frederick, King Albert of Saxony,
King William of Wurtemburg, Prinoe
Regent Luitpnld of Bavaria, the Grand
Duke of Stxe-Weimar, the Grand Duke of
Baden and the Grand Duke Vladimir of
Russia. The King and Queen of the Belgians were represented by Prince and Princess Philip of Saxe-CoburgGotba and the
King and Qui en of the Hellenes by the
Duke and Duches of Sparta, l'he Grand
Duke and Duchess Serge specially represented the imperial family of Russia. The
bridal costume was of white crded Bilk,*
deoollette, with immense puffed sleeves
tand elaborately trimmed with historic
laces. The texture of the tulle veil was almost entirely shrouded with orange
blossoms.
At the wedding breakfast which followed
the otremony Queen Victoria proposed the
health of the newly wedded oouple. The
young couple left for the Chateau of
Roseuau, the birthplaoe of Prince Albert,
Queen Victoria's husband.
Yesterday they entered Darmstadt in
state. 	
General Martins' Terms of Peaoe.
London, April 21.���A Buenos Ayres despatch to the Times yesterday saya that the
envoy from President-eleot Mores has held
a conference here with the insurgent General
Marlins, for the purpose of arranging peace
in the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
General Martins'terms of peace were that
the Governor of Rio Grande do Sul be deposed; that a new electiou be held in Brazil;
that insurgent officers be reinstated in the
posts they formerly held and that amnesty
be granted to all. It ia stated that Da
Gama will be landed at Buenos Ayres today. It is reported ihat General Saraiva,
with 5,000 of his insurgents, are on the
northwestern frontier of Rio Grande do Sul.
House of Commons last evening that the
annuity of ��10,000, drawn by the Duke of
Saie-Coburg-Gotha in his capacity of Duke
of Edinburgh, be abolished.
Mr. Labouchere seconded the motion.
From Coburg, a rioh Principality, he said,
the Prince drew ��30,C30 yearly. By his
marriage he had obtained ��15,000 yearly.
The Duke, moreover, was a foreign sovereign.
As suoh he might at any time find his obligations opposed to the interests of Great
Britain. There was no valid reason why
England should support the Duke of S.ix ���
Cobuig-Gotha. She might just as wel] p��y
the expenses of the Emperur of China or tlie
L una of Thib.jt. The groui.ds usually given
tut a graut of tiiis surt were not applicable
io a toreign sovereign. The usual argument
for a Royal grant was that the English
prinoes were expected to make a certain display and fulfil certain social functions: Any
reason of this kind could hardly be made to
bolster the claims of a prince who lived and
ruled in a foreign land.
Lord Randolph   Churchill   attacked Mr,
Morton's motion warmly.
Sir William Harcourt, Chancellor of the
Exchequer, defended the grant.
Mr. Morton's motion was defeated on a
division by a vote of 298 to 67.

Th*i operators at the Phelps & Stanley

and the mill is now temporarily idle. The
fort.tnau not being satisfied with the services
of one of the employees, discharged him.
Tbe other employees demanded to know
why the man was discharged. The foreman, in substance, said it was none of their
busiuess, and then the employees insisted
upon a reinstatement of the discharged man.
This was refused, the employees were
promptly paid off and a man sent to Seattle
after a new orew.
Torriblo Earthquake in Greece.
London, April 21.���A despatch from
Athens to the Times says: That an official
telegram has been received from Thebes
stating that the earthquake whioh was felt
thr ugh Greece totally destroyed that town.
The inhabitants are in a sad oondition, be-

Port Townsend, April 21.���The Evangel
reports the successful raising of the steamer
Success, which sunk at her dock in Friday
Harbor one night last week. The vessel
was floated by a peculiar process. Slings
were arranged, and by a double tackle
fastened to a stump puller. Tiie entire
population took hold, and the combined efforts brought the vessel to the surface, l'he
Success carried the mail between Friday
Harbor and Anacortes.
Catterlln's Hasty Departure.
Several business men of this city are bemoaning the hasty and abrupt departure of
a clever confidence operator named S. E.
Catterlin, who came here three weeks ago
from Portland. He made the acquaintance
of several young meu and proposed working
that ancient skin game known as the note
proposition, whereby much returns were
sure to accrue from small investments.
About $100 worth of notes were sold, and
last night, whon the drawing was advertised
to, take place, Catterlin was missing, to
ge* her with his alleged wife, a dashing in
dividual known as "Jennie." He will not
be lookedup, as no one will confess to having heen "flimflamnied."
Fairhaven Coal Probably Best.
Whatcom, April 21.���The United States
gunboat Yorktown arrived to make a test
of the Whatcom county coal with a view to
its possible use by government vessels on
this coast, Secretary Bloedel and Engineer
Donovan, of the mining company, will accompany some of the officers of the York-
town on a visit to the mine. Tests of the
Blue Canyon coal and that from the Fair-
haven Land Company's mine in Skagit
valley will also be made, thirty tons from
each mine having been taken out on lighters
this afternoon. Most of it is now aboard,
and Commander Folger expects to leave
about 11 o'clock to-morrow to take a running test on a nip out I he Straits. He says
the preliminary tests made iu Seattle
indicate that the Kan-haven coal is the best
for steamer purposes on the Sound, Blue
Canyon second aud Black Diamond I bird.
Black Diamond was used on the trip from
Seattle, the vessel averaging twelve knots
and the wheal not varying five revolutions.
If the running test of local coals proves
them to be superior to Black Diamond it ia
considered probable that the Yorktown will
return herein a few days and that the Behring
Sea fleet will coal here. After this test is
made the Yorktown will devote two days to
target practice and then go to Seattle,
where Commander Folger will give a dinner
to Governor McGraw.
Tacoma, April 21.���The breaking of
ground for the interstate fair has been
ordered by the Board of Trustees
and instructions were given for the
work to begin immediately. Mr. Buoey is
the accredited originator of the interstate
fair idea, whioh iB to have the states of the
Northwest and British Columbia join in an
interstate fair, the governors or other
au* hon ties to appoint commissioners to
meet with the local managers and complete
the details, and all sections of the Northwest to be allowed to participate on an
equal footing, and all local features, so far
as catering to Tacoma, to be eliminated.
Two Rather Curious Cases.
Sbattle, April 21.���Before Judge Osborn
the suit of J. W. Godwin against the Seattle
Automatic Refrigerator Company is being
tried. In this action the plaintiff alleges
that 510 boxes of apples, which he had
plaoed in the defendant's cold storage ware-
honse to be kept at a uniform temperature
of 32 to 34 degrees Fahrenheit, were frozen
and rendered worthless, and he sues to recover their value, $906.33.
It is not very often that a bright little
chap, the joy of a hard working mother, is
held as security for a board bill, yet such a
case happened here, and before the matter
was amicably adjusted, the services of L. C.
Gilman, Deputy Proseouting Attorney Bass
and Detective Cudihee were oalled iu. When
the little one was returned to it's mother's
arms she shod tears of joy, and it is said
that Mr. Bass turned away   to  conceal   his
emotion.

Flashes from 'Frisco.
San Francisco, April 21.���The Industrial Army is still stranded here, all roads
refusing to carry them unless for full passenger rates.
The United States ship, Alert, whioh has
been overhauled at the Mare Island Navy
yard, in order to fit her for the Behring Sea
cruise, went out to sea this morning for a
trial trip.
The jury in the Fredericks murder case
brought in a verdict of murder in the first
degree after 15 minutes' absence from the
court. Next Thursday morning, at 1*9
o'clock, is the time set for passing sentence.
Fredericks heard the verdiot unmoved.
Freight rates on the Pacific Mail line
went flying up again, the opposition being
at an end. On general merchandise to
Panama, the rate was raised to $8 a ton, on
flour $7.50, and on lumber $15 a thousand.
While it is thought that there may be another increase, there is not muoh fear of the
old rates being reached. The Panama R.R.
Oo. will meet the advance when the steamer
Saturn returns to Panama on her next
down trip.
William E. Hall, just dismissed for cause
as clerk of the board of police commissioners
makes a sensational disclosure of what he
claims are the blackmail methods performed
by certain police officers upon gamblers and
other petty malefactors who desire immunity from police interference. Hall tells a
circumstantial story of the elevation of a
policeman named Robinson to be a sergeant
a month since by mysterious means, and
then of an offer of Robinson to Hall to
"graft" certain Chinatown gamblers, giving
him (Hall) one-half the prooeeds. Robinson
played the spy on other policemen and
claimed to Hall to havo found out. just how
they are making handsome additions to
their regular pay, and he thought it was a
bonanza be and Hall should not overlook.
Hall agreed. Their operations proceeded
on this basis. Five sergeants of police, it is
said, are to be dismissed for corruption.
Chief of Police Crowley, although much distressed over the state of affairs among those
in whom he has placed such implicit confidence, still expresses his determination to
probe the scandal to the bottom and asserts
in the most positive manner that every man
connected with the ring of boodlers will
have to go.
Getting Back at His Father.
Col. Breckinridge has a family of grownup children, three girls and two boys, one a
lawyer, aiding iu the defence of his father.
The other, named for his grandfather, Robert J. Breckinridge, is of a wild disposition.
Just before the breaking out of the Breckinridge- Pollard scaudal, Bob got on a spree
aud had several fights. Col. Breckinridge
telegraphed from Washington to put him in
jail and keep htm there until he returned,
which instructions were folio iod. It was
decided to send Bob oo a sea voyage, and
just as he was boarding a vessel he read an
account of the old gentleman's doings with
Miss Pollard, and wired his brother: "Put
the old man in jail and keep him until I return, three years hence."���Alalanta Constitution.

doubt a large number of our Nanaimo ladies
will take advantage of the reduced rates
and thus eecure a competency in the shape
of an endowment policy. They also insure

NANAIMO, B. C, SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 1894.
SiAMP COLLECTORS.
THERE ARE ALREADY OVER 5,000,000
OF THEM-
llie loomoni Value of Some Collections
���One of Them Worth #000,000 - The
Cost of Some Single 9pwim��iu ��� Stamp
Collector. Mot Toole.
Five millions ot postage-stamp collectors, among whom are their Royal Highnesses the Duke of York and the Duke of
Saxe-Coburg, have caused philately to advance in popular favor by leaps and
bounds, says the London Telegraph. So
great is the competition for rare issues
that ��340 has heen paid for a single specimen. PoBt.'ige-stanip collecting is no longer
a mere pastime or hobby, it is a science, as
philatelists say, and, at all events, they
make of it a very serious pursuit.
There are stili people who hold to the
belief that the passion for preserving postage stamps is nothing but a mania, excusable during bnyhopd, for it is supposed
to be useful in teaching lads geography
and the extent of the Britisu Empire, but
when meu devote their time to collecting
foreign, colonial or English issues they are
frequently looked upon as harmless lunatics, to whom the old adage may be appropriately applied: "Fools and their
money are soon parted." Philatelists,
however, are possessed of considerable
common sense, and much method underlies their madness. In truth, stamp collecting has developed an important feature,
fin*, as a correspondent points out, it has
become the recognized medium of investment on the part ot thousands of professional and business men, who are oontent
to forego immediate dividends upon their
capital in order to realize compound interest at a high rate.
Members of the Stock Exobange���from
a love of speculation���barristers, doctors,
army officers very largely, and the clergy
to some extent are to be found gravely
ai)d systematically collecting stamps to-
4ay. Many of them possess collections
numbering tens of thousands of specimens, and some of these are of great value,
and are duly insured at Lloyd's. It is
probable, however, that no British philatelist cau vie with Von Ferrary, of Paris,
whose treasures are said to Oe worth ��100,���
000. Important collections have been
made in Australia, and it is stated that
during tbe lute bank crisis more than one
house of business saved its mercantile
credit by raising money on rare postage
sumps which were held by the partners.
How very extensive the interests of
stain]! collectors have become in Lo.dnn
is demonstrated by the fact that there are
nearly forty firms engaged as dealers in the
City and West Eiui. Last season two
auctioneers iu the metropolis turned over
nearly ��15.000, and a third firm is supposed to have de wt with stamps to the
value of about ��10,il00 more nt public sale.
These figures aie sign licant when it is re
collected thai slam, auction sales are comparatively of recent introduction, and that
they are entirely supplementary to the
methods of distribution and exchange
which have been In operation since stamp
collecting first became a fashionable hobby
in 1H01.
Beit Dog to  Keep.
I have often been asked to advise as to
the best dog to keep, and in answer I have
always said that everything depended upon
where and how the prospective dog owner
lived. To keep a large dog with a heavy-
coat iu a town house always struck me as
cruel. Large dogs need exercise, else they
get too fat and then fall ill. In town a fox
terrier and the sluggish pug are tr. be preferred, or any of the littie toy dogs, In
the country any kind of dog may be kept,
the selection depending upon tlie taste of
the owner. The pointer and setter are
both most companionable, and if there is
anything to shoot in the neighborhood
they are most valuable. All "f the spaniels, on account of their i: tv! igettce, are
interesting, ami the tn istifl is mi invalu

But any purely bred, we.l u*.i..eil dug.
where titer.- U room for * x
his keep in a thousand dili
least of which is that aliV
that remains always true,
be subjected to neglect,
and even active abuse.���John

Told of Ellen Terry.
Here 1b a story illustrating the ready
tact of Ellen Terry, the actress. She had
promised to introduce a man to Mr. Irving,
but had forgotten his name. Ou the pretext, as the story goes, that she and Mr.
Irving had had a little dispute about the
way the man's name was Bpelled, making a
bet about it she got him to write it on a
slip of paper. Of course that saved lier.
If Miss Terry did this she wsb more fortunate than another clever woman about
whom a similar story is told. She, too,
when she hail forgotten a name, said that
she wished to settle a dispute about the
spelling of the name by having it written
out for her. The man then gravely scrib-
bled his name. It was u uatia- that is not
spelled ill more than a dozen different
ways.    It was Jones I
Bail for SucrwU.
One of the most striking phenomena of
the Adirondack region is the oarrying
power of thu human voice in still weather
upon the lakes, great aud small. Persons
ashore easily hear the ordinary conversation of others who are so far out upon the
lake as tu be uiulistitiguishalile, and as a
great many Adirondack visitors habitually
violate the luw touching the slaughter of
deer, all such offenders are extremely careful not even to whisper a word that might
betray their guilt when rowing upon the
lake..	
Tonnage of Warships.
The total tonnage of warships launched
dnring 1893 by tbe most aotive naval powers waa as follows: France, 52,183; United States, 40,030; Great Britain, 28,2110,
and Russia, 17,320.
Where the Ark Heated.
Mount Ararat, the resting place of the
Soriptural ark, is in reality two mountains
separated by a valley. The higher peak is
17,210 feet and the lesser 18,000 feet above
the sea level
A Legend.
According to Scandinavian legends, the
swallow hovered over the cross, singing,
"Svalal Svalal" (Cheer up! Cheer up!)
and lienoe it receives the name of svala,
or swallow, "Use bird ot consolation."

Tfc�� Way to Learn   to Aot Is foy   Aetlng���
Lillian Uiiaac-H's Ailvlob   to As p. I rants.
The young girl, if she has strength to
oarry hers,-It safely in any Be*If supporting
walk of life, need nevi-i- hesitate to take np
the stage as a proff-sion. The cant ot
stage perils is every whit as foolish as ths
cant of the stage as M mural agent.
How shall wi* go about it?
There is no literature on the art of aot-
ing. There are biograplii"H and autobiographies by the snore. They may throw a
little light on the secret of stage success,
but it is a confused and unsa*.iffiutory way
of getting an education in the art of act
ing.    After all one learns t** uot by acting.
I.do not think any oue oan i;ivu any valid
advice to an aspirant f**r stage success.
The way to succeed, is to succeed, and no
individual oase can be set up   for a model.
People of serious intellects, wno always
want to know why they are amused, aro
much given to bemoaning the fact that
beauty is such au Important part of a successful artist's equipment. But it is the
artist herself who is the canvas on which
she paints. One might as well quarrel
with the painter for d siring the best materials. Some one says tuat beauty is
genius���on tho stage. There is a half
truth in the remark. At all events beauty
is the roost efficient aid talent can have.
"It doesn't seem to be an easy life," this
typical young girl remarks, rather gloomily. Indeed it is not. But then it iB a life
full of color and the excitement whioh is
inevitable from all creative or interpretative art.
"Aud the rewards, Miss Russell?"
And when the young girl asks this qiies
tion I think it all over���the hard work, the
interest, the triumph, the seclusion and 1
might almost say the exclusion of the ar
tmt's life. Yes, the re vards are great, but
one pays a great prioe. The artist whose
medium is her voice, her beauty,
in a word herself, is forced to lead
a life of exclusion. She excludes the flippancies of society, the "joie de vivre,"
everything which might tend to impair
the ciiuriii of her art medium.
There are no audi* r.ties nowadays? My
dear auj typical yut.ilig girl, .V"U will find
au auch'.rite hidden uniier thu splendid
stage gaiety of every great artist. She
cannot i.fl! ,nl to ludu ge in the diwi.patloiiB
of society. She uoiinot atfuiu tu fritter
aw,i_v uer unarm in little ploa.-mr* s. Iu almost all cases her home Ufa is that of a
r* clu��e, her life uu 1 he stage, a triumph
it may be, nut an arduous triumph.
Aud the renown? Yes, thai is undoubtedly great. But the reward is for the few
and tne hard work and disappointments
are fur the ���"���. ��� PMIrtdehi i   Press,

WE NEED MONEY.
Up to the present we have not pressed

others felt the pressure of the prevailing
h��rd times, but the tine has arrived when
we must have the amount due us. We
hope this notice will be sufficient, and t**at

settle at once,
THE   MARCH   OF   THE   COMMON-
WEALERS.
The news published every day in the
American newspapers about the doiugs of
the Cotrimonwealers is one of the most remarkable signs of the times umong our
neighbors on the south. So-called armies
under the direction of so-called generals ure
assembling at various points in the States,
all proposing to march on Washington. The
armies are mostly made up of tramps, reinforced By unemployed men, and their leaders without exception are ignorant and mis-
chievou* demagogues, who are simply taking
advantage of the occasion, and whom the
American Government will have to deal
with sternly, if the crazy proceedings in
which they and their deluded followers are
engaged are carried much further. Coxey
and Frye are two of the most prominent of
these leadeis, Kelley is another, and one of
the latest whose name It .e appeared bears
the euphonious appellation of "General
'Jumbo' Cantwell," of Tmoma. It is doubtful if any of these men really want work, or
would accept it if it were offered them, with
reasonable wages to boot. We see it stated
in a Seattle paper that East St. Louis offered
Frye's meu $1,50 a day each and regular
employment, for a time at least, and they
refused it. We also see it stated that the
farmers on the Atlautic seaboard find it impossible to secure help, and have to send for
newly-arrived immigrants; and that a similar condition of things prevails in the Middle
Western States. Why do not these idle
tramps, who are vaporing around the country in semi-military array, living
on the contributions they can manage I
to oollect in the towns along their |
route, go to work fur the farmers and
do something useful for their living?
The answer is that they don't want employment, and don't want tu work. They
prefer to live on the fruits of other men's
labor, rather than to labor themselves. So
at least respectable American newspapers
say, and it must be confessed that they appear to have reason for saying it. Coxey's
notion of what is to be done when he and
his men arrive at Washington is worthy of a
bedlamite. To call him a demagogue, although he is undoubtedly playing the part
of one, would be to compliment him far
more than he deserves. He boasts that he
and his followers will have a bill introduced
in Congress providing for the issue of $500,-
000,000, to be distributed pro rata among
the Stat* s at the rate of $20,000,000 each
per annum, and that will create good times.
It also appears that he expects the Federal
Government to furnish his men with steady
employment at good wages, with short
hours. A very different reception is being
prepared for him and them by the authorities at the national capital. The Government has not the smallest idea of providing
work for the vagrants at any wages, good
or bad, much less of making a vast issue of
greenbacks for their benefit. Tnere is an
old law in force in the District of Columbia,
making it penal to bring any parson there
wbo is likely to become a public charge,
Coxey on hia arrival is bound to be arrested
under this law, and locked up till his followers disperse. "Of oourse," says an
American   contemporary, 'the   D.'s'rict of|
Columbia cannot take charge of and support
several thousand tramps, but it can and will
arrest their leaders nnder the district law
which fully reaches their case." The New
York Sun's Washington dispatch says:
" In addition to the very broad vagrancy
" law of the district, and another law which
" will effectually prevent the Common-
" wealers from holding their proposed meet-
" ing on the steps of the capitol building,
" Chief of the Police Moore has found two
" more statutes which apply to the case.
" Under the provisions of one of these
" Citizen Coxey, despite hiB alleged atllu-
" ence, can be arrested, as he undoubtedly
" will be, and fined or imprisoned. This
" law makes it an offense for any person or
" personB to bring into the District of Co-
" lumbia any person or persons likely to
" become a charge on the community, and
" it clearly comprehends Coxey's case. The
" penalty imposed for violations of the law
" is small, but its imposition will be suffi-
" cient to keep the chief Commonwealerand
" his lieutenants in durance uutil his sol-
" diers are disposed of in a manner that will
" relieve apprehension as to their danger to
" the city and citizens. The other law
" which Major Moore thinks he may be
" called on to enforce provides that no per-
" sons shall congregate on the public high
" ways nor around the executive mansion,
" the capitol nor the other public buildings
" in Washington."
It is pretty clear that a big disappointment awaits "General" Coxey and his men
on their arrival at Washington, and that
they stand a fair chance of being taught a
practical lesson in political economy, of
which, to all appearance, many thousands of
persons in the United Slates are much in
need at present. If the police at Washington are uot strong enough to enforce the
lesson, the militia will undoubtedly be called
out to help them.
The presenting of a petition to the Queen
on the subject of the Manitoba School Act
by the Roman Catholic prelates of Canada,
as stated in a recent issue of the French
Canadian paper La Presse, of Montreal, is
an unexpected mo* e on their pirt. It will
be interesting to watch what comes of it.
The question is not one tliat the Imperial
Government will care to meddle with, and
petitioning the Queen on the subject is
virtually to petition the Ministry, by whose
advice she will of course be guided.
The Brazilian revolt is ended completely
at last. On Thursday afternoon Senor Mendonca, the Brazilian Minister at Washington, received a de-spa'ch officially informing
him tha- the rebellion was over. It appears
that'he Aquidaban has been Bunk by a
torpedo boat of the Brazilian Government
in the harbor of Santa Catarena, and that
Admiral Mello went to Buenos Ayres with
the cruiser Republiea and four mher vessels
and asked and obtained asylum, saying that
he had abandoned the contest for lack of
resources. He delivered his vessels to the
Argentine government. This ends the
whole affair. Mello is now blamed for deserting Da Gama, and the latter, it, is said,
will challenge him to mortal combat. But
if Peixoto gets hold of either, he will render
that unnecessary, for he would have him
shot forthwith.
It is pleasant to note that. General
Herbert in his annual report ou the condition of the militia Hjieaku iii commendatory
terms of the British Columbia artillery.
General Herbert, however, i�� far from being
satisfied with the militia generally. He
wants the number on paper reduced, and
the force made efficient. General Herbert,
who is a practical soldeir, is no doubt right
in this; but we fear that French influence in
the cabinet, will be too strong for him, and
that the money which should go to establish
and maintain a reli ible force of citizen
soldiers that oould be depended on if called
out for action iu the field, say to defend the
country in the cane of invasion by some
foreign foe or to quell domestic insurrection,
will be wafted as heretofore on phantom
French regiments from Quebec province,
which in the hour of need would probably
be found to be non est for the most part. It
is an un'ortnnate circumslance that our
national defences should be, as they are, at
the mercy practically of a !o* of scheming
politicians, who value nothing bu*. party
success, and who nre ulwa}*** ready to sacri*
ficewhat. ough to be regarded as the dearest
interests of the oountry to obtain it.

NATURE MAKES GLASS.
m\ the Pi-omm She Meaaurae lAstimmmmf*
Dlaiuvter.
Did yon ever see tlie diameter of a light
ning flash measured ? asked a geologist.
Well, hero is tiie chsb which onoe enclosed
a flash of lightning, fitting it exactly, su
that yon oan just see how liig it was. This
is called a "fulgurite," or "lightninghole,'
and the material it is made of is glass. I
will tell you how it was manufactured.
though it took only a fraction of a second
to turn it out.
When a bolt of lightning strikes h
bed of sand it plunges downward Into
the sand for a distance, l.*ss or
greater, transforming simultaneous!
into glass the silica in the material through
which it paBses. Thus, by its great heat;
it forms (it '.moe a glass tube of precisely
its own size.
Now and then such a tube, known as a
"fulgurite," is fonnd and dug np. Fill
gurites have been followed into tlie sum!
by excuvatious for nearly thirty feet. Tl:.;*
vary In interior diameter from ttie siz**> u
a quill to three inches or more, aocordin .*
to the bore of the flash.
But fulgurites are not alone produced in
sand ; they are found also in solid rocks.
though very naturally of slight depth a:.*,
frequently existing merely as a thin glass,,
coating on the surface. Such fulgurites
occur in astonishing abundance on the
summit of Little Ararat, in Armenia.
The rock is soft and so porous that a
block a foot long can be obtained perforated in all directions by little tubes filled
with bottle green glass formed iroiu the
fused rock. There is a small specimen it*
the National Museum which has the a"
pearance of having beeu bored by ti*
toredo, the holes made by the worm su.
sequeutly filled with glass. I am indebted
to the "Washington Star" for the foregoing
accounts,
I may add that Charles Darwin mentions
these fulgurites in his book of travels am:
Humboldt found some on the high Neva*!.*
de Zoluca, in Mexico. Humboldt ascended this precipitous peak at the risk of his
own life.
Opals Hecomin-f Less Unpopular.
The prejudices against opals seems to be
disappearing. Anyhow they are popular.
There are several varieties of opal am
therefore several degress of merit. The
precious, or noble, or oriental opal is till;
supreme. This has all the oolors, a
when these colors are broken Into spangle
it is then called the harlequin opal. Thei.

Mexico. The common, or semi opals, an*
non-opalescent. The hydroplane, ur UCU-
lus in an *1 i, is noiitraiisimreiit, but be
oomes so by immersion in water or any
transparent fluid. The eaohaloug is near
ly opaque and of a bluish while color
The hyalite is odorless, pellucid and white.
The opal jasper or wood opal is the petvi
faction of wood, opalescent, but without
the coloring which makes the "noble" gem
so precious. ��� Lewistou Journal.

' CHAPTER 1
AT THE MARINEli'S JOT.
I was lazing on the rotten balcony before the busy front of the Mariner's Jot
when I first saw Taras. He came from
Ferryboat alley, the passage running
between the Joy and Baxter's wharf and
leading to the steps where the old ferry
used to ply. between that part of Shad-
well and Kotheihithe, and another man
���was with him mimed Drigo. Taraawas
:a fine, big man, fair, with a long tawny
������mustache, and a short beard. He was
dressed like a workman in a dark gray
.suit, a flannel shirt and a bine handkerchief for a tie. but he didn't look like a
workninn for nil th:i-t���at any rate not
such as yon see down Sludwell way.
lie was too clean aud active for that.
I li'Jgo was not a bit like him, beingroid-
flle aged, meager, with a stoop in his
shi'tildcrs, and having a yellow face,
with high cheek bones, a sparse black
b: ard and slanting eyes. Men like him
aro common enough about Wapping
and the Highway.
They walked down to the stairs, and
Drigo pointed across toward the Commercial docks, but I could not make out
what he said. Taras nodded, and they
turned round and looked attentively at
the Mariner's Joy and then at Baxter's
wharf on the right and Johnson's yard
nt the left, Drigo talking with great
earnestness in a low voice all the while
and Taras listening gravely as he
smoked his pipe and replying only with
a word or a notl of his head from time
to time. I couldn't make ont wliattliev
found to interest them, for Baxter's
wharf was shut up���and had been shut
ill* for years���and there was nothing in
Johnson's yard but a great heap of rust
ing boilers and old iron. As for the
>..,liner's Joy, with its broken windows,
the gaping planks, of its bay front a:id
the rotten balcony projecting over the
muddy foreshore, there was nothing in
that to attract attention. They saw me,
and Drigo i i.le a joke at my expense, 1
believe for he chuckled as he stared at
me, but Taras smoked on gravely aud
never smiled.
At length they quitted the steps and
came up Ferryboat alley, and a minute
or two afterward I heard them open the
door in Sweet Apple lane and enter the
sanded bar. Iwentiu through the bar
parlor to serve them.
"Give us some gin, miss," said Drigo,
speaking with an odd accent.
"We ain't got no gin. We're lost our
license," I answered.
"That's a good sign," said Drigo in a
low tone, nudging Taras.
"What do you people drink hereT"
Taras asked.
"Pongelo���four half gen'lly."
They decided to have some "four
half," and while I was drawing it Taras
said:
"Can to have a room here for a few
daysr
'* Taint likely, None at the rooms
ain't furnished, ceptin the parlor, and
the bloke Bleeps in that."
"Where is t lie bloke!"
"GorneiI out."
"When will ho belnf
"Don't know. Preapa five minutes,
preaps not afore shuttin up time."
All that I know now has boon acquired since that time Then I spoke
like a savage and was little better than
a savage in any way, having lived from
my earliest days friendless and utterly
neglected.
Taras and Drigo spoke together in a
.tongue unknown to me, ,.ua that gave
lue au opportunity of looking tit them
more closely. Taras was about 83then,
and as I have said a fine, large man.
'there was resolution anil RliYiigtli in
his chin and nose, but great kindness in
his month and clear, deep I lue eyes. I
could see tin n that lie was to in* loved and
feared as will. Not so Drigo. There
was nothing to love iu his lace. His
deep sunk black eyes wero crafty: his
mouth was brutal: his mustache was
clipped, aud bristling out nd ed to the
ferocity of tin* lower parr of hisfaee.
Two front teeth were missing, and the
rest were blaok. His face was deeply
marked by the smallpox, That typo of
man was not unknown to me.
"I suppo*-*" we may wait here till tbe
���the bloki .(���turns'*'' Taras said.
"You ken if you like."
"Is he your father?" asked Drigo,
seating hiuisulf on the bench facing the
bar.        .,
"No,"
"Your hnsbamir
"No."
"What then?"
"What's that to your I iwliM.
"What is it to any one?" I asked myself as I made my way through the bar
parlor to my fo mer place on the balcony. ' \\ hat does it matter to any one
who 1 am or what I am'/ A homeless
dog would find more friends than I; a
drowning cat would get more pity.
W hat good am I to any oue? What
good is life to me?"
Such thoughts as these were passing
through my mind as I lolled upon the
sodden handrail of the platform, looking
i*:il at the thick, dun water that slug
'gisHly lapped the slimy shore, when
feeling the presence of some one I turn
ed my head and perceived Tarus standing near with a notebook and a pencil
in his hands. He bad found his way
ont there by the passage and was amus
ing himself by sketching me, leaning
against fteww}, with his pipe in his
11.1rati). I thought he was "taking me
o.f." finding something in my face to
ridicule like every ono else, and I turned
n,y back ou him. Not that I minded
whether he made sport of me or not���I
Was too accustomed to serve as the butt
of course jest and heartless sarcasm to
1 ��� od io ii'.In r shaft1, more or less, even
Linn i.iie v. * *> seemed less brutal tban
tiie rest���but 1 had no desire to add to
the anir.-'itient of my natural enemies.
"Do yt i mind standing a�� you stood
just now';' lie asked.
"Gain mvy," I replied, turning on
him spitefully. "Who d'ye think y're
ii "(tin at? D'ye think I don't know
\rghine?    D'ye   think   I'm   going   to
stand for you to make fun 6f me? " I'm
as ugly aa sin and not so pleasant���
there y'are.    I know what I am."
"Ugly!" he said, with an accent of astonishment.
"Yes. ugly. Else why do they eall
me the kipper?"
��� 'The kipper?   That is the  fish with
warm, reddish brown color���the color
of your hair."
"No, it ain't. They call me goldin
surrup' and 'treacle when they're gettin
at the color of my hair, a.id they call
me 'kipper' because I'm so skinny and
flat. They can call mi anything they
likes to lay their tongue to���I don't
mind, but I ain't goiu to be drawed and
Btuck up for all the lot to laugh at���not
me!"
Just then I heard the front door open,
and going into the bar I met the bloke
���Putty was his name���who had returned. He was all right���quite sober
���for a wonder. I gave him the money
I had taken, and nodding at Drigo
said.
" These parties is a-waitin to see you."
He had not yet noticed Drigo' who
sat up in a dark corner watching him as
if to finll out what sort of a man they
had to deal with. Putty now examined
him in the same way. and then turning
to Taras, who had entered from the
passage, treated him to a long stare.
"We want to know if you can let us
have the use of a room for a few nights,"
said Taras.
" For a private purpose," added Drigo.
rising, and dropping his voice as he
came closer said, with a wink, "unbeknown to outsiders, you understand."
Putty nodded, and addressing me said.
"Hi***1: it." as he took down a pot and
drew himself some beer. Taras gave me
a pleasant nod as 1 slunk out by the
front door That altered my destiny.
It was not an uncommon thing for me
to be sent out of the way when Putty
had business affairs to talk about with
his customers across the bar of the Joy,
and I never troubled myself even to
wonder what his secret dealings were
but that kindly look in the face of
Taras excited a strange feeling of inter
est in my mind, which made me curious
to know what business he had to trans
act with such a rascal as the bloke.
I slipped down Ferryboat alley to the
shore climbed up the rotten timbers on
to the balcony, and edged myself into
the bar parlor, where I could hear pretty
distinctly all that was said in the bar.
Drigo was speaking, but bis broken
English and the low. crafty tone of his
voice made what he said unintelligible
to me. It seemed to perplex Putty also,
for presently interrupting him he said
with irritation:
"Here! It's no manner of use your
being so cussed sly over this here busi-
ness. I must know all the particlers
str.iightforard afore I go into it. Here.
1 likes your looks butter 'an what I do
your pardner's, mate. Lemme hear
what you've got to say."
"The matter's simple enough," replied
Taras, "Three friends have left their
country for certain reasons. To do so
they engaged themselves as sailors on
board a vessel bound for London. Their
contract bint's them to return with the
ship to their country, and they cannot
openly break the contract without making themselves liable to be taken back
by force. But they intend to desert,
and our object is to provide a place of
refuge to which we may convey them by
night from their ship as soon as it arrives, and where they may change their

HOUSE CLE___TI_TGI-
WITH ALL ITS JOY AND MISERY.
All men look upon housecleaning as an evil derived for their special discomfort by the other sex. All women look
upon housecleaning as an evil likewise, but they know it to be a necessary one.
Housecleaning is unest apable. It must come to all���rich and poor, high and low. Twice a year does every grade
of womanhood meet upon common ground.
Festivals and vacations and journeys and other human happenings may be postponed - even done away with altogether. But housecleaning! Fate itself is not less unavoidable, and with the budding and falling of each year's leaves
does it as certainly loom before us, the great twin horror of the year.
Draperies require renewing, lounges and chairs recovered, etc., etc. Now we carry an immense line of House Furnishing Goods, and only yesterday opened up another shipment of Lace Curtains, which we have only added charges to���
when marking���so they are therefore very cheap Then we have Art Muslins, Cretonnes and Fringes, Table Linnens and
Napkins, and a big stock of Sheeting and Pillow Cotton.
