SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Nkw Zealakd Spobt.—New
Zealand now contains groat numbers
of wild cattle, which have desponded
from those lost by the farmers during the Maori wars whicli ended in
1868. Hunting these animals is a
dangorous and exciting sport. The
game is not easily secured, as the
animals hover—seemingly for protection—about thickets tilled with
long twining creepers, in which pro
gression is very difficult. Into these
vines they dash ut the slightest alarm, seeming fully aware that neither horse nor man can follow then).
A SclENTiFH! oddity. — The
model of an earthquake is a unique
piece of apparatus that has been
constructed liy a Tokio seismologist
Patiently and laboriously following
out the accurate records of a modern
seismograph, Prof. Sekina has succeeded in shaking a long coil of copper wire so as to represent, with the
utmost precision, the intricate path
deseribed by a shaken spot of the
earth's surface. The model magnifies fifty times the ground's absolute
motion during seventy-two seconds,
and resembles a ball of twine unwound and thrown down in a confused heap. Numbered togs show
the progress of the shock for eaoh
second of time.
The Egyptian Lake.—The government of Egypt has been persuaded to make surveys whioh prove
the existence of a depressed region
nearly sixty miles long by twenty
miles wide, reaching a depth of 250
to 300 feet below high Nile. This
depression has for several years been
hold by Mr. D. Cope Whitehouse to
be the site of the wonderful arti
ficial lake Moeris described by
Herodotus—fictitiously many have
believed—with a circumference of
450 miles. The interest' at last
aroused in Egypt makes it probable
that the Nile will soon be admitted
to this valley by a canal eleven
miles long, The creation or restoration of this great artificial lako
will give fertility to a wide area,
and will reduce the annual inundations of the Nile, while storing
water to replenish the river in dry
Wind-Made Sou.—Wator is not
the only physical agent concerned
in carrying the earth's solid materials
from place to place, modern investigations proving that the dust carried
by the wind produces astonishing
changes iu tbe configuration of the
land. The thick deposits covering
ancient ruins are now believed to
to have been largely brought by the
air. A French geographer, M.
Violet d'Aouest, after referring to
to liichthofen's description of a vast
aerial soil-formation in China, mentions having seen on the flanks of
high mountains in Mexico clay
strata not deposited by the' wators
nor by the decomposition of the
rocks, but produced by the dust
raised from the plains by tbe winds
and left on tho hills. These deposits vary from 100 to 300 feet in
thickness, growing finer with increase in height, and ceasing at tho
limit of vegetation,
The Uxineiisal Solvent,—Three
things were sought by tho ane'ent
alchemist—the philosopher's stone,
the elixir of life, and the universal
solvent. The last of these, though
long known to modern chemistry,
has just been separated, but, cannot
bo retained simply because it attacks
or destroys everything. "This fury
of the chemical world," says Mr. W.
Mattieu Williams, "is the element
ltusrine; it exists peacefully in company with calcium in fluor spar and
also iu a few other compounds, but
whon isolated, tu it recently has
been by M. Henri Moissan, is a
rabid gas that nothing can resist. It
combines wilh all tho metals, explosively with some, or if they are
already combined with some other
non-metallic element, it tears them
from it and takes them to itself. In
uniting with sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and aluminium,
the metals become heated even to
redness by the fervor of its embrace.
Iron tilings, slightly warmed, burst
into brilliant scintillations when exposed to it, manganose the same.
Even tin* noble metals, which even
at a melting heat proudly resist the
fascinations of oxygen, succumb to
this chemical siren at moderate
temperatures. Glass is devoured
at mice, and wator ceases to be
water by contract with this gas,
which combining with its hydrogen,
at tlio same moment forms the acid
glass-dissolving hydro-fluoric acid,
and liberates ozone."
A. Mnytrco, Merchant, Wrtrkworth,
writes! "1 hnvn .old some hundreds of
laittli'H of Ih1. Thomas' K.:lerrtri.! Oil, and

A TEUUIIlt srOKM.
Boston, March lis—The Boston
Htrald sends out the following: The
storm has been raging incessantly for
two days all over Kew England, as far
as our scanty communications can
reaoh. Every railroad out of the city
is blockaded completely and tho only
.telegraphic communication wo have is
by the Commercial Cable Co.'s line to
Rookport, Maine, and thence by cable
to London. Never before was there
such a complete prostration of business
and the damage to property must
amount to an enormous sum. It is 60
years since Boston has boon so affected
by a storm.
Canada's cbedit.
London, March 14.—The Canadian
Garette says that the next time that
Canada wants a loan she may evidently
issue at 3 per cent. Provincial and
municipal bonds and railway stocks
and bonds also show increased value
except in the case of Grand Trunk
stocks. Bad traffic returns caused a
heavy decline in this stook. In connection with the city of Quebec corporation loan it is noted that British cor
poration stocks now yield barely 3| per
cent., or about li less than these new
Quebec bonds. This points to a successful issue.
THK BLIZZABU AT WASHINOTON.
Washinoton, Maroh 14. —The
blockade of the oity growing out of
Sunday night's blizzard was partly
raised to-day. Two trains oame through
from Portland, and one that started
from New York early Monday morning
came in late to-night. Direct telegraph
service between Washington and Baltimore has improved slightly during
the day. No mail has been received
at the postoffice here from New York
and the Bast until late to-night since
Monday night when the train which
left New York on Sunday night, that
was twenty hours on the way, arrived
here.
the storm and the stuxips.
New York, March U.-The Fall
Kivor Steamboat line is the only line
open between New York and Boston,
and there is a great rush for passenger
and freight transportation. The company was obliged to shut down the
sales of tickets long before the usual
hour. The steamer Bristol left Fall
River at 1 o'clock this morning and
arrived here at 1 o'clock this afternoon,
bringing passengers and freight from
Bonton and other eastern points, and
86 bags of mail from Boston. The
steamer Providence left this evening
on its regular trip, carrying all mails
for Boston and other eastern points
which have been accumlating in thia
city and vicinity for the past 48 hours.

Wo expressed tho opinion tho
other day that the refusal of the
council to name the city "Wcst-
miiater" in the new charter was
not in accordance with the wishes
of the citizens. This opinion has
been proved correct by subsequent
events. The expression given by
the large and influential meeting on
Wednesday night left no room for
doubt. Yesterday a petition to the
legislature, asking for the change
mentioned, was circulated through
the business part of the city, and
was signed by nearly ovory person
to whom it was presented. No ono
has yet put forward any good reason why the change shonld not be
made, and we are sure the fow who
object to it will very soon como to
coincide with tho opinion of tho
majority.

typed plates. It is the worst kind
of monopoly, because it is the result of a spirit which for purely selfish purposes would sweep all labor-
saving appliances out of existence.
The Kamloops Sentinel publishes
a letter from Messrs. Clarke b Co.,
of that place, in which exception is
takon to tho notice given by the
Winnipeg Commercial. It is pointed out that many of the principal
institutions and commercial concerns
of the town were omitted from the
Winnipeg paper's summary, and
others of less note were inserted.
For example, Mr. J. A. Mara's largo
commercial business, one of the
most extensive in the province, is
passed by without any notice whatever. It is stated as a probable explanation that these firms which received no mention wore simply being, punished because they declined
to subscribe forthe Commercial, nnd
this explanation is very probably
correct. In adopting this method
the Commercial is simply following
a very objectionable practice which,
we regret to say, has becomo too
common with outside papers which
undertake to write np particular
localities. The same plan was pursued by the San Francisco Journal
of Commerce in its British Columbia
number. It professed to set out the
resources and commercial advantages of British Columbia; but it
ignored such places and such concerns as refused to givo it advertisements or bonuses, and thus did great
injustico by its selfish discrimination. This is very unfair, and leads
us to the observation that in nearly
every instance the results of such
schemes are disappointing, and the
benefits fall far short of the representations made by the canvassing
agents. It may be taken as a settled fact that outside publishers undertake such schemes solely for their
own profit. They have no personal
interest in advertising the places in
which for the moment they profess
to have such wonderful affection,
and their notices extend just as far
as to cover the fee demanded. If
any one starts out with a proposal
to write up British Cotumbia and
confines his work to those places
only where he gets large bonuses,
he does a great injustice to the country, and deserves no encouragement
A deputation of printers is Baid
to have waited on the government
at Ottawa some days ago for the
purpose of asking protection. Thero
are in the United States several establishments which produce large
numbers of stereotyped metal or celluloid plates for printing purposes.
These plates are thin and comparatively inexpensive, and they are
used quite extensively both in the
United States and Canada by newspapers. The cost of these plates is
less than half the cost of setting up
an equal quantity of type. This is
the point of objection. By means
of these plates many publishers aro
enabled to give their readers a much
larger quantity of reading matter
than would be possible without
them. But some of tho printers
think that the use of plates is interfering with their craft. If thero
were no plates, they think, publisher! would be forced to use more
type, and printers would, therefore,
find more employment. They rule
the government to prevont the im-
portation of American stereotyped
newt plates by imposing upon them
a prohibitory duty. This may bo
legitimate protection, but it is certainly one of the very worst phases
ot it. So far aa we know, there are
no stereotyped news plates manufactured in Oanada; and if they are
to be got anywhere, publishers must
go to the United States for them.
The same principle carried out in
other things would put an end to
invention and progress. The stereo
typed plates are to type-setters what
reaping machinery ia to the wielder
of the tickle; and the apirit that
would prevent the use of these plates
by publishers, would strike out of
existence all labor-saving devices
and compel a return to, the "good
old days'whon steam power and
machinery were unknown. It is to
be hoped the Ottawa government
will not listen for a moment to any
thing M outrageous. Not long ago
three printers connected with this
offioe invented and patented an automatic perforator, which* enables a
pressman to print and perforate a
aheet by one operation, and is, con-
aequently, a great savor of labor.
But pressmen would have just as
good ground to ask the government
to forbid tha manufacture of theso

Scrofula
ta one of the most fatal scourges which

and various other causes. Chronic Sores,

Tbe skull he found lo he that of a man.
Tlio under jaw is or mammoth alio, easily receiving the hen i of an ordinary man
williiu its sides. The teeth are enormous molors or double teeth all around,
an I in n perfect slain of preservation.
The surprise and gvalrllealion were great
in trsiner when he examined the v'erie-
Inse. It is of immense sirre, and the
Kiriiigo thing about ilis that instead or'
leiiuiiiatiug abrup'.ly, as in the ordinary
man, it is prolonce.l for eight or t n inches beyond, describing a graceful curve to
tho rear. While lim main vertebrae is
tir miy set the caudal appendage is flexible. At its juncture with' the backbone
prjper, at the usual location of the cocyx,
it measures four and ouo half inches
wide, but it narrows rapidly toward tho
end. Considerable of the tail hns disappeared, probably by decomposition, but
sufficient remains tn domousipitte beyond
a doubt that,at last.the longsolight'mah
with «tail has been found in the mys-
1 l"iir,us old cavern ot Northwest Texas.

The Cleopatra Bath Rolls.
The woman who has tbe money and
time to be Intensely and altogether fosh-
' rouahle usually racks her brain and
I draws heavily upon her purse in a struggle for novelty. The newest development in this line is called the Cleopatra
bath robe. Even in the bouses of the
rich the bathroom is nothing like the
porgeoiu bathing apartments of the
ancient Romans and Egyptians, but in
some eases it is something like a small
■rcctioiioi theancieatsplenuors. Whether
the mistress of a line house has a gorge-
oisly tiled bathroom or only theordi-
, nary thing, abe can be luxurious in her
.use of it.   To that ond she may now en-
1 velop herself, after her lavatory indulgence, in a garment made of a thick but
sot and fleecy blanket, such as are often
brought to the East from the Pacifio
const, and which cost at retail from $10
to r'M. The garment isloosely fashioned
out of this material, and it has a toga-
' like appearance, with its clonic drapery.
Hut iis white woollen surface is not left
as clear and primitive as were those garments. There are two methods of
decoration in vogue for these bath robes.
(lire is to embroider them, and the other
is to paint them. In either case con-
si lorablo of really skillful art may be
employed in decorating the robe with
Cowers.   Kibbonsnnd fringes may also
< be ultachod, and altogether the wearer,
'.hough only attired for seclusion, and
I y nil the laws of propriety bound to
si room and run If discovered by masculine eyes, is really arrayed in about as
much splendor, of its kind, as though
yoing to a ball.    • •• -—-- •—.

The Rt. Louis (llobe-Democmt says: tt
Is astonishing to observe how few people
■ un ierslnnd the common rules of measure-
in. nt in purchasing wearing apparel.
I or instance, a man will buy a coat that
> is n "s so" too small or too lane. A "size"
nriiri ler or a "size" larger Is what he
pr.'h.ibly needs, but he docs not know
u bat a "size" is. Well, a "size" in a coat
' in nn inch, a "size" in underwear is two
in lies, a "size" in a took is one inch, in
a collar one half ah inch, in a shirt one-
hail an inch, in shoes one sixth of an
inch, pants one inch, gloves one fourth
o. »u inch, and in hats one-eighth of an
inch. Very few purchasers ever underhand tho schedule named.   -*>

the hn pitality of th.ir owners, or on account ol the prominence of.the families

According to that "veteran observer"
of the South, Bill Arp, a new industry
has arisen in South Carolina. He says,
in one of his letters to the -dllati'ii lon-
tlitul ell :
'Thero is one product at Anderson
that I novor saw beforo iii tho up-
country, anrl that is rice. I saw ono lot
of *25ll bushels grown by ono farmer, and
lie sold it for $1.25 a bushel. It is in the
bull ami Is all shipped to Savannah and
Charleston for seed. Tbe low-country
rico is mixed with a noxious growth,
just liko wheat is mixed with cheat and
cockle, but this up-countryjrice is pure,
nml hence commands a higher price
than their own. Tho farmers around
Anderson grow a great deal of rice, making from sixty to eighty bushels per aero
ou their meadows and meadow lauds.
Why do not our Georgia farmers try it,
for there is just such land on almost
every hum in this up-country 1",

"Thero again you nro in orror," said*
tho ono and only, "our best colored help

by Ayor's Pills.

compelled to wear a shade over them,

I took at the suggestion of a friend, havo
given me effectual relief. I commonced
taking this remedy two months ago, and

The entertainment to be given by
the ladies of Vancouver to-morrow
night in Herring's opera house is attracting considerable attention, nnd,
no doubt will be largely attended. The
concert will be the same as given by
them in Vancouver on Tuesday night,
on whioh occasion there was barely
standing room, the audience being so
great. The ladies nre of the opinion
that they should bo largely patronized
in Westminster, as they declare they
all turned out to the concert given iu
Vancouver by our Choral Union. Tho
programme contains many novel features, and it is safe to say tho wholo
entertainment will bo a decided treat.

it was decided to establish an employment office in connection with the association for tho convenience of persons coming to the city in search of

thoso who are lucking for situations,
and it is desirable that farmers and
others everywhere who need help
should notify the association so that
enquirers may be furnished with placea
as speedily as possible This department may prove of tho greatest benefit both to the employers of labor and
employees, but it can be mado successful only by the hearty co-operation of

Late Despatches.
tub hunch it eg est.
New York, March 12.—The Berlin
correspondence New York Tribune
says: Princo William, the eldest son
of tho crown prince, and tho future
heir to tho German throne, received
the title of major-general as a birthday present from the emperor, on Jan.
27. The advanced ago of the monarch
and the frail condition of tho crown
prince's health havo certainly had
much to do with the grandson's rapid
promotion. Two years ago—he Ib now
twenty-nine—Prince William ranked
only ns a major, and peoplo in general
spoke with surprise ut tho slowness
with which he advanced, yet all praised the thoroughness of his military
education. Innumerable princelings
were then above him, as well us untitled men of not muoh longer service,
for a Prussian prince receives his
straps at the ago of ten! He was compelled to wurk like the rest of his comrades, equally subject to military discipline. Early and lato ho was with
his regiment, ordered about as an ordinary major,'saluting his superiors,
with little or no attention—in a military way—paid to his royal rank. But
all this is changed, and he wears now
the brilliant insignia of n Prussian
major-general. The emporor appointed him by telegraph—he being stationed at Potsdam—and a few hours later
ho presented himself to his grandsire
in his new regimentals, beamingly happy at his increased importance.
Princo William is a young looking
Major General. He lacks the prominent rugged features of his father, and
the handsome lines of his grandsire.
The Hoheuzollerna have no hereditary
physical characteristics. Even Professor Virchow failed to find any cranial ones in his scientific examination of
the ancestral skulls. They have never
intermarried, having tho purest blood
of all royal families—a custom which
tends to preserve und intensify
peculiarities, Princo Willi im has lim
appearance of a young man of 25. His
upper lip shows a sparse blond moustache, his nose is slightly Roman, with
a medium forehead, and hair stands
back like Beethoven's But despite
the comparatively weak chin, his cold
blue eyo has a brave, daring expression
which reminds one a littlo of the Grout
Frederick, whom he is fondly said to
resemble in character. Hu is plunder
in build, and shorter in ataturo than
hisbruthor, the "naval Uohenzollorn."
His right hand ia badly cripplod, aud
his i ight nrm at least t wo inches
shorter than his left; n defect which
has caused as much annoyance and
mental pain as ovor Byron's deformity
did. Hu tries upon every occasion to
conceal it, but tries, of course, in vain,
Yet, tho skill ho possesses is remarkable Ho carries his rvvord upon
parade as woll as any offici-v, nnd has
become u most excellent fencer, rides
liko a Cossack, nnd mi cflicor in the
army is more popular tlmu this royal
scion and none more clever. No wonder that his mon aro attached to him.
He has a pleasant word for all, and
cracks his joke with tho common man
as though he wero ono of his number,

Ottawa, March 14.—The debate on
Sir R. Cartwright's motion for Froo Trado
was tho great event in the house to-day.
Sir Richard opened tho debate by going

and that industries wero being ruined
and trado confined by tlie tariff policy,
Hs advocated fullor independence to the
provincial legislatures, the abolition of

etrioted freo trado with the United States,
Tho latter, he contended, was the most

greatly to the ndvttntago of Canada as
well as of the States, Ho made a speech
of about 4 hours' duration and was fob
lowed by the Hon. Thomas White.
