SCIENTIFIC MISCeLLANY.
Coffee Poisoning.—Chronic poisoning by coffee has been studied by
Guelliot, of Reims, who finds it
among well-to do over-fed individuals, while tea-poisoning occurs in
hard-worked and half starved womon. The symptoms of coffee-poisoning are want of appetite, sleeplessness, and nervous tremblings,
with various indications of indigestion mid torpor of liver. lea-
poisoning requires rest and nourishment; but the victim of ooffee excess
usually needs to unload his system
by exorcise on a low diet.
Fertilizing a Deseiit. — The
Ouoil Hir', now becoming one of the
most prosperous regions of Algeria,
is a great oasis in tho Sahara. It,
overlies a vast subterranean water
reservoir from two and one-half to
eight miles wide, which, in a distance of somo 78 miles from north
to south, is now tapped by about
1U Freiioh spouting wells and 492
native ones, with a total dischargo
of 03,425 gallons of water per
minute. Tho Oued Kir' has nearly
520,000 palm trees in bearing condition, and an annual date production of moro than $500,000. Tho
population, which, like the productive land, has more than doubled in
30 years, is about 13,000, distributed through 31 centres.
Electkic Pitt.xo-Pla.yinu.—Electricity has been invoked to supply a
substitute for a musical education.
Uy moans of the stephonium, or
"electric music interpreter," Mr. J.
0. McGee, of Edinburgh, proposes
to enable persons ignorant of music
to play the piano and other instruments of similar aotion. The music
sheet is placed behind wires spaced
to correspond with its scale, and
each successive note is sounded by
touching the wire over it with a
metallic pointer, which closes an
electric circuit, and strikes the proper bell or string. It is only necessary to follow the notes with eye and
hand until the piece is played, By
sliding tho sheet up or down the
wholo range of notes is quickly
transformed into another key. The
stephonium may be removed to any
distance from the piano or other
source of musical tones.
Luxg Expansion.—Assailing prevailing views, Dr. Thomas J. Mays
maintains that impure air has little
effect in producing pulmonary consumption, hut that the ..(lUeose
chietty results forn inactivity of the
lungs. Icelanders, coal-miners and
others spend much of their lives in
the foulest atmospheres, and yet
they nre comparatively free from
consumption. The benefit of a
mountain climate is not due to lack
of atmospheric bacilli but to tho enforced expansion of the lungs in the
rarefied air. The cure of the disease is simply a mechanical question
as to the best mode of expanding
the lungs, and especially the apices
of round-shouldered and Hut-chested
patients, of removing the infiltrated
products already existing, nnd of
enhancing the constitutional resistance. Ou the whole, the author
seems to favor treatment with inhalations of compressed and rarefied
air, combined with abundant gymnastics and inspirations calculated
to enlarge tho chest capacity.
An Astronomical Puzzle —
Since Jupiter's satellites were discovered by Galileo ill 1610, astronomers have beeu greatly mystified by
the phenomena of their transits
across the planet's disc. The fourth,
or farthest satellite grows rapidly
and increasingly fainter as it nears
the edge of the disc, shines with
moderate brilliancy for ten or fifteen
minutes after contact, then disappears altogether for a like period,
and lastly comes out ns a dark spot
which becomes darker and darker
until it equals the blacknoss of its
own shadow on the planet. The
second satellite, however, seems
nover to have been seen otherwise
than as pure white (luring transit.
The appearance of (he third and
lirst is different still, the former
having been seen as perfectly while,
and yet, oven ou the next succeeding revolution, so black as to be
mistaken for the fourth; while the
hitler is sometimes a steel gray and
sometimes a little darker. These
singular anomalies, says Nowcombe,
are very dillicult to account for except by supposing vory violent
changes constantly in progress on
the satellites' surfacos. After a
special study of some years, Mr. E.
J. Spittn, H,A S., reaches a different conclusion, attributing the ap-
inrient changes to idiosyncrasies of
nnr vision. These defects of the
oyer cmi.se a small illuminated object
crossing a Ini'snr to appear bright
when the light-refleoting capacity of
the former is tho higher,   area   for
Children Cryfor Rtcher|irCttf<>rfoc
area, and to seem dark when the
background is the superior in reflecting qualities. The edgo of the plan- j
et has less reflective power than the
centre, and opposite sides of tho
satellites may differ in this respect.

LAST NIGHT'S DKffPATCIUB.
HON. THOS.  WHITS DEAD.
Ottawa, April 21.—The Hon. Thos.
White, minister of the interior, died
at (1:45 to-night of pleuro-pneumonia,
after a week's illness. Bo was conscious until his death, and during the
evening bade an affectionate farewell
to all the members of his family. The
fatal disease was the result of a bad
cold. No arrangements have yet been
mode for tho funeral.
[Tho Hon. Thos. White. M. P. for
Cardwell, was born in Montreal Aug-
u.t 7th, 1830. He was first roturned
to parliament at tho general election,
1878, and was re-elected in 1882 and
1867. He was sworn in as a member
ot the privy council and appointed
minister of tho interior August Sth,
1885. He was prominent in both
newspaper and trade circles for many
years, and was a leading member of
the Dominion board of trade, and
edilor of the Montreal Ga-Me. As
minister of tho interior, Mr. White
proved himself to be the right man in
the right place, and that'department
has never been better managed tban
under his guidance.
AN   UNSETTLED COUNTRY.
London, April 21.—In spite of the
large majority secured by the French
cabinet in tho voto of confidence in the
government on Thursday, the general
state of affairs in France continues in
an acute crisis. The number of Republicans who formerly would not see
anything very dangerous in General
Boulsnger's proceedings now believe
him lo be tbe instrument of the royalists' restoration. Others, however,
behove that Boulanger is not so muoh
a would-be Monk aa a Ciusir. In the
large towns the moderate republicans
aud the communist element are as
loggerheads. Some of the socialists,
no doubt, are bitterly hostile to General Boulanger, but men like Rochefort,
who though reckless is not really a
communist, are, to the surprise of
all sensible republicans, still hand and
glove with the would be dictator. An-
other serious matter is that many republicans labor ander tho mistake that
their present difficulties are caused by
the secret dealings of tho German government, and that in General Boulsnger's recent oleotion by so largo a majority they see also the hand of Bismarck. Bismarck is known to be no
special friend either of parliamentary
government in his country or of the
principle of democratic institutions, as
a rule, but in reference to France he
unquestionably wishes the mainlen-
tenance of the republic, because in it
he sees a guarantee of peace. Monarchical restoration or a dicbtorship
would at once create a fresh danger of
an armed conflict. An unwarrantable
talk about Bismarck's alleged secret
dealings with the enemies of the republic is not apt to feed the flame of Chauvinism in France, and thus prepare the
way for a military dictatorship. It is
strungo that so many French republicans do not see this. They are actually laying trap, for themselves. But
their groundless assertions, while promoting Boulangeriun, at tho same
time help to make militarism a national necessity in Germany.

Mondw Evening, April ml,
If newspapers may always be implicitly beiioved (and it isn't often
they, lio), no one need wonder because of tho infatuation of the llor-
man Princess Victoria for Princo
Alexandor of Enttenborg. Tho London Times says of Princo Aloxandor:
"He3s. one of the. most brave, most
gentle, most valorous nnd most
handsome of living princes. In all
the iilyls of poirtry tlioro 1ufs not indeed been a more perfect hero. Tho
whole story of his campaign against
tho Servians sounds like nn epic."
Wc agroo with a number of our
cotempornrics who have expressed
approval of tho amendment just
mado to the municipalities act requiring travelling tradesmen to pay
a substantial license wherever they
may solicit business. Commercial
travellers from the east often do a
lot of business in the country that
belongs legitimately to the local
trader: but the trader is forced to
pay taxes,-while the othor escapes
free. During tho past twelve months
several tailors from tho east have
visited all the, important towns and
cities throughout this province, and
have gone homo with their pockets
full of ordors for clothing. They
paid no taxes, i For many reasons
un eastern tailor can make clothing
more cheaply than it onn be mode
in this country. Materials there
are all cheaper than with us, while
wages and all other expenses are
less. It is not fair that these people should ire permitted to compete
with our own workmen and escape
the taxes we have to pay.
In spite of opposition from all the
cities affected, clause 10 of the
school amendment act has been carried through the house. Wo notice
that the Victoria Colonist and Vancouver News nre the only newspn-i
pers which have defended this clause,'
and both of them seem to bo under
the expression that it is a portion of
the high school expenses, and not
the expenses of the public schools,
that is to be borne by tho cities.
If this is what the section proposed,;
our opposition would bo withdrawn
at once. We believe, and have
stated, thut any municipality enjoying the luxury of a high school ought
to pay at least a portion of the expense of maintaining it. But this;
is not what the bill proposes to do.1
The cities are to be taxed for a portion of tho. expenses of the public,
sohools, and if it is intended to Bet I
thit up as being equivalent to a portion of the high school expenses, we
should liko to know wby tho real
object of the extra tax is so carefully covered up by the bill, Why not
require all municipalities to bear a'
part of the expense of maintaining
high schools within their limits, and'
give trustees power to impose fees I
That would be a very simple arrange
ment, and the municipalities would
then know exactly what thoy wore
doing.
"Wehave lately, noticed several
letters complaining of the lack of
facilities for reaching tho settlement
which, during the past few years,
hu been established at Alberni.
Quite a number of settlers have gone
into that part of the country, where
there seems to be a considerable extent of very good agricultural land.
But the place is difficult of access,
A road, or trail, has been constructed by way of Nanaimo, but it is not
good enough for either freight or
passenger travel. The people complain very much of their isolation,
and seem to think the government
ought to subsidize a regular steamboat service between Victoria and
Alborni. We believe it is the duty
of the government to givo all reasonable encouragement to the settlement of the country, and to facilitate the construction of roruls everywhere as far as the revenue will per
mit But it has seemed to us questionable whether it is good policy to
encourage tho opening cf settlements
in places so remote from the market
at Alberni, until all other settlement! have been fairly developed.
Hr. i Halpenny, the government
guide, must have spent a good deal
of publio money making numerous
trips to Alberni with prospectors
and tjpttlers, and if it now becomes
neoessary to bonus a steamboat or
undertake a costly trunk road so as
ta enable these settlers to reach tho
markets, the work of opening up
this country and maintaining the
avenues of intercommunication is
going to be terribly expensive. It
seems to us people ought not to be
encouraged to go to these remote
placet, j, Ther should be directed to
lands that lie within, convenient
mob of the markets, or the estab-
lithtdavenuesoftrallic. Whcnthese
lands hare become quite filled up, it
will be time enough to open more
remote regions. The cost of making and. maintaining roads and
bridges in this province is already
very large. In the estimates now
before ths house it shows up at
|1B2,100. It persons are to be
planted in scattered settlements all
over the oountry, thit item of expenditure will toon swallow up most, of
the revenue.

I surrh young men. Edward Arkwright
was the only one who knew where I
kept that pocketlroo'r, and it hns disappeared,'' nnil Mr- llrnrinston pursed his
thin lips and shook ills head sadly.
"And will yo'i go to law about it?"
the doctor aslted.
".No. I shan't do lli.t. His fathor was
agootl Iriend o! niinr*. I'll dismis3 him
simply from my employ."
I'm sorry for hia:/' said Dr. Doriiflold,
simply, and then ilrovo on to seo his
next patient.
Dolly Dornfleld in tho mcniitiino was
soiiteil by tho cottaae door, pining pench-
in nnd looking now and then up and
down tho road.
r-lro began to hum a bar of a tender
love-song,' - when   I'Mwar.l   Arkwright
stepped out of tho shadow and confronted
her.
"Dolly I." bo called.
She paused and looked up, with a
smile on her face.
"Oh, it's you, eh'."'
"Yes. I was afraid you wouldn't epoak
to mo," ho faltered;
"And why not?" with wondering
eves.
"Uecauso peoplo think mo a liiicf."
. "I should as sririti helievo tli at  Mr.
Iltifcriiigton stole his own piieketi-oolc—
the cross-grained, o.liousotri wretch!"
"Thank you for thnt, Dolly," gasped
tho young man, ndvaii-ing hurrieniy to
her, and pressed his lips io the dimpled
. back of ono while poach-siainbd little
baud.
DdHyjmtttched it away with reddening cheeks. ■■'■■'■
■■Mr. Arkwright!"
"Forgive mo, Dolly; but I am going
abroad to-morrow."
"Is that any reason that you should
kiss my land."
"Dolly, I love you!" ho faltered.
"You have carried my heart dajiiilin*!
in that samo littlo hnnd theso many
weeks!"
"Oh," said the maiden, looking intently down at her pemli 11, "tlmt a i.uiur
another affair. How ran I help iliat."
"Won't you sny ttirrt yun lovo nro a

nud white in tint iut'inrry uf his emotion. ''Won't yon give nro a morsol—
tho merest crumb uf hope to livo on
while I am gone ?"
"*\'o, I won't," said Dolly, tossing her
pretty head. "How ridiculous ull this
is!"
"At all events, Dolly, you cannot pro-
vent my loving you.   I Blinll curry that
lovo in my heart wherever 1 go until I
hoar that you have given yoimself to
somo other man."
"You will do nothing of tho kind!"
''flashed out Dolly Dornliold, Indignantly.
"I will not allow it."
There aro some things, Dolly,  that
1 oven you have no power to niter," said
young Arkwright, Badly.   Good-bye 1"
Hhe heard his footsteps crushing down
the honey-sweet blossoms of the* whito
clover.   She heard him se.de the mossy
stone wall through the tumultuous bout-

■ sprang up, Battering, tho red freight of
' peaches right and left Into the grass. 2
"lidward—Mr. Arkwright!"
But it was too late—he was gone.    '
"Well, papa, is thero any news V" said
Dolly, her usual nightly question, as sho
snt down opposite the doctor to pour out

lighty swallow.   "At least I suppose

Numerous instances could Ire sighted to

the ennse of more troublo than any other
ono t ing, not excepting alcohol, for it
lends men to murder, suicide, ember/le-

Worried people cannot make good bargains: tlieir judgments becomo so warped
or twisted, through dwelling too.long on
the samo subject, with thoso subjects
they are no clearer ut the end of their

Tlie application wns based upon the fact
thnt dili'crent effects upon the negatives

brown nlmoftt black. Consequently,
whero figures or a namo had boon altered
with ink of a different hue from tbo

photographic Impression. The professor
trite i two instances, which happened of
lute, in which forgery was detected in

I have often woudored how gentlemen
roriiiTinlrered ladies to whom they had
just been introduced at balls whon hunting thorn up to dunce, I picked up a
programme from tho floor at the charity
ball which save somo light. The gentle-
nun had put beside the name of each
stranger a word suggesting something
distinguishing iu her toilette. But better was the programme of a gentleman
who Is visiting St. Paul, which I saw.
He sketches readily and had drawn the
pro'ilo of one lady, a diamond star which
blurred at the neck of another,' eye glasses for a third and so on. A ntroke or two
us he moved away and the fair lady wu
stumped upon his memory—rather his
programme..   . . —
—During a political lecture that was
being delivered a short time since in a
certain liadical constituency, a rather
amusing incident occurred. A number
of forms had been placed on each other
at the back of llie hall, and on them
soveral youths had taken up their position, One ol the forms wns pushod out

A vary interesting programme hns

The woolen mill, which has not been
in Operation for some time past, will
resume work to-morrow. A new manager has been secured and it is expected everything will ron smoother in the
future than in the past. Several very
large orders have been received within
tha nit week, which together with lucid oemands wilt keep the mill running
at full oapaoity throughout the remainder of the year.
Tha box that waa stolen from Wise's
wharf on Friday night has been recovered. The thieves evidently thought
tht oase contained something valuable,
and must have Buffered considerable
disappointment when they found its
contents ware paper collars. As paper
collars in large quantities are an encumbrance to the average thief, tbey
placed the box on a landing below
Okitttk^Ut .whe-w it was discovered

If you want to see a good game, aud.
the Royal City football team knocked
higher than a kite, take the morning
or noon train to Kew Westminster,
and you will Bee .that the Vancouver
boys have not their equals in tlie field.
—Vancouver Herald.
It is not long ago since tlm Herald
make itself ridiculous over a game of
football, and now it breaks out again
more silly than over. Surely tho Herald knows that any sort of brag ia very
bad taste, and not commonly indulged
iu by respectable journals. Hut the
Herald may not know this, so, perhaps, it should nob be too strongly censured. The defeat of Vancouver on
Saturday by tho Westminster ejiib
ought to bo a warning to our salt water
cotemporary not to allow its imagination auch wide scope, nnd thus avoid
becoming ridiculous.
Urnili »1 Hon. Tli oni a 4 While.
From our telegraphic columns it will
be seen that Hon. Thomas White,
minister of tho interior, died at Ottawa last Saturday night. For about
a week Mr. White has been ailing, but
very few had auy idea that his troublo
was of a serious or dangerous kind.
His death was, therefore, quite unexpected. Deceased was born in Montreal iu 1830, and during his life, before entering into politics, occupied
many responsible positions. At different times he edited three newspapers,
and was regarded as a very able writer.
After boing defeated in four contests,
ho was elected to the commons in 1878
by tho people of Cardwell, Ont., aud
held the seat until the time of his
death. In 1885 he entered the cabinet, und has been in many respects a
valuable minister. He visited this
provinco twice in his official capacity,
and has many admirers in British
Columbia. Mr. White had n groat
deal of practical common boiiso,
coupled with a large amount of business ability.
A Successful Sale.
Tho salo of city roaervos and gar-
dons by Mr, T. J. Trapp, at the Col-
anial hotel on Saturday night, was one
of the most successful yet held. All
but half a dozen of the lots offered for
salo wore disposed of, and everyone nt
a price in advance of the upset figures,
which shows people are beginning to
realize the splendid field for investment thore is in Westminster property.
Out of nil tho squares nnd gardens
there are now only twelve lots left to
be disposed of, und these will ho taken
unlike hot cukes the moment they ure
placed on the market. The total
amount of tho salo foo's up to tho
handsome sum of 88,185, which, with
the income from previous sales will, it
iBotpected, wipe out tho remaining
radway debentures before the end of
the year. Many of the purchasers of
lots on Saturday night havo nlready
been offered an advance on the figures
purchased at, but have refused to sell.

BETWEEN TWO FIKKH,
London, April 21.—Tho element of

which prevail among thu Roumanian
people. Tho existing crls's presents
Itself to their mind i im a choice between
Russia and AuBtriu-Hungary, and cir-

difficult for them to make such a
choice. Fow Roumanians havo forgot
