Malls and Routes.
Tho British Columbian; pu1)IiBhed.at
Now Westminster, British Columbia, of-
tlate May 30th, 188,-t, was received June
Sth, having been ten ilaya en route. New
Westminster it not over 120 miles from*
Seattle, and almost directly north. There
is now a direct postal route from here
established to within twenty miles of
New Westminster, directly down the
Sound. The route should bo .extended
to couneot that point with this, and thus.
form the shortest water route between
the Canadian and Northern Pacific-Kail
roads. Delegate Brents has alreridjfcapi.
iilied to tho Post Otlice Department at
Washington, for an extension of the
route, which it is very plain would lie
soon self-supporting, if not so at present
Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
The people of tliis oity will gladly'
assist uny movement for the purpose
of facilitating communication be
tweon British Columbia and Puget
Sound, Tlm international boundary
line separates two peoples whose laws
and habits and politics are in a great'
measure distinct; but in matters of
trade and intercommunication there
should be no conflicting interests and
no petty jealousies. Both communities seek tlio settlement and development of their respective territories.
We are inclined to believe that both
will be tilled with settlers, as. rupidly
as will bu consistent with healthy
progress, Immigrants by hundreds
and thousands are flocking to these
western shores, and those who comb
report that there are thousands pre
paring to follow. This' is the time
for preparing routes for traffic. Tho
channels of intorcommmumoation
now opened up will in all probability
become permanent, if wisely selected
and efficiently administered. We
believe tho establishment of .a regular and efficient mail service between
New Westminster and Seattle would
not only meet the necessities of commercial correspondence, but would
quickly develop a large and permanent trade which would bo mutually
advantageous to two communities.
The early completion of the Northern
Pacific Railway to Seattle will be an
event which must very materially
affect the trado of British Coiumbin.
Our eastern importations will certainly come over that road, und-it is
worth white for us to begin to consider by what means they will reach
New Westminster from Seattle. The
railway will be opened in September,
It is now nearly July, and two
months would be a short enough
period in which to arrange and perfect an efficient steamship line to
connect these two points. The merchants of the mainland 'have long
enough paid tribute to Victoria on
freight and passenger traffic. It is
time wo were looking for an independent route which would place us
on as good a cominotciul footing as
the people of Victoria. Until the
completion of the Canadian Pacific
Kailway our freight must continue
to come over American lines, and it
is for us to consider which route will
be the cheapest and most commodi-
-tljH. Updqubtpd-y t'lfl Northern
Pacific has advantages ovor all others for handling thu British Culttm ■
bia triple, and wo must be pi-epu'fed
to avail ourselves of the«o iiilvun-
ttigf-s its sunn its that road has heen
coiuph'ted to Si'Jt'ttlo. If a (hilly line
qf sti'ituiirrs between New Westminster nnd Seattle will nob pay, let us
havo it fU-iimer every other day, or
pyim twice a week. That would be
tm immense improvement on things
n% thoy now exist. And these steam-
{Hi-* should carry tlio mails. We he-
liovt) nn arrangement oould be made
without difficulty between the Canadian and United States governments
for joint action and u joint subsidy.
The peoplo of Seattle have already
petitioned their government on the
subject, and the New Westminster
Board of Trade have sent a merfiorial
to the Canadian government.. We
hope these representations, backed
up by our representatives in parliament, will be speedily successful.

Mysterious Wells.
ONE OF THE CURIOSITIES OF PERSIAN AN'
TIQUITY.
In the neighborhood of Sliiraz, on a
hill an hour's ride the north-east, the
traveller comes upon some wells which
would .also seem to date back to the
days of the Great King, for the labor
involved in their construction certainly
points tn a dynasty more magnificent
in its undertakings for tho royal pleasure thau either the Parthian, the Sas-
sanian, or tho.Arab. Near the top of
this very precipitous hill, with no tracts
of masonry to mark the site of fort or
palace, thero yawns un opening, perfectly rectangular, about 8 x 6 yards,
which is the mouth of a well going
down into tho bowels of the mountain,
The shaft is cut in the livo rock, the
sides are as perpendicular as the plumb
line could make them, and the depth,
as ascertained by the time of a falling
stone, something under 400 feet, the
bottom at present being dry. Within
a distance of 50 yards on the same hill
are- two other-similar wells, and local
tradition asserts that there is underground communication among the
throe. .This theory finds support in
tho fact that when a pistol is fired at
tho .mouth of one of these wells with a
view pf. disturbing the siesta of tho
pigeohs who Hock thither at tho noontide heats, the noise made by their
wings, at first very Joud, gets gradually
fainter, as though the birds were escaping through some internal galleries.
They certainly betake themselves in
some .manner away from tho perpendicular shaft without coming out at
the upper mouth, though there is no
evidence to prove; that their exit takes
placo through either of the other two
wells. The labor expended on the
boring of these wells must have been
enoynous. , If the object was merely
to secure the water supply for some
fort which originally crowned these
heights, one cannot see why a shaft 24
feet by 18,'and so accurately cut,
should have been required. Were they
indeed wells, or were.they intended as
passages for tho sudden exit of troops
from some fortress built here to hold
tho plain in awe ? In the latter case,
somo sort of ■ spiral staircase would
necessarily have beon attached to the
walls of the shaft, of which at tho
present day uo trace romaiiiB. Unfortunately for scionce, no traveller
has yot visited Shiran sufficiently enterprising to go down the 400 feet of
perpendicular<si'de with ropo or ladder.
Curious relics of bygone times might
certainly bo found at the bottom, but
without a proper windlass and better
ropes than those now made in Fars,
the risk of a broken neck would cool
the ardor of the most veutursome antiquary; and bo, up to the presont, the
pigeons alone enjoy the sight of the
secret treasures which possibly lie at
the bottom of these astounding shafts.
As we have Baid before, there is now
no vestigevof building left on the hill
to indicate in any way the dato of their
construction, nor is there any inscription apparent on the sides of any of
the welts to aid us in our investigations. Tradition, as usual iu.Persia in
the case-of anything out of the common, ascribes tlio work to Suleimon
ibn Baud and his Jiniis.
Whni tsuS|ion»e?
Scientists have wrestled long and
bitterly over the nature and origin of
a sponge. Up to uot many years ago
most of them agreed on classifying it
simply as one of the infinite series of
submarine vegetables.' Later scientific
opinion, however, sets down the sponge
as an animal, or rather a bunch of
iiiinpto animals of low organism, cell
shaped, equipped-with a stomach and
digestive machinery, throwing off from
their body .masSes of fecundated eggs,
nnd developing iu combination with
each other that fibrous mass which ultimately reaches our markets as thu
sponge of commerce. Take one of
these masses which we cull a sponge
and examine it moro critically. It will
be found to be a group of smull fibrous
cells which, after ramifying more or
less, connect with large round apertures penetrating far into the sponge
mass. By suction, or some more occult process, ihe sea water is drawn
through the smaller colls and their partitions. Tho living organism then takes
up from the passing fluid and devours
tho minute algae, oii which it is supposed to feed. The water then loaded
with excrement, pours outward in a
fionstimt current through tho larger
.orifices. Huockul, tho famous German
mt-tiiralist, contends 'but the sponge
sheds most luminous scientific light ou
the rtanoter methods of evolution*.- So
that'conteiiVJilating one'of "those inert
uiassos of'fibre hanging prosaically in
the drug'-store, evwlutiuiiists may regard it wiih something of the ruvuron-
tial regard duo to a protoplasmic an*
center.
eiihin's Warlike Tendencies,
If China does net fall into a war
with Franco, it is certain to run foul
of sotno other nation before long. (The
Govbrument of that vast region seems
to have waked un to a sense of tho
humiliations to wliich it lias beon subjected by the European nations. The
■defeats inflicted upon it havo beon
attributed, rightly or wrongly, to a
lack of organization and of modern
war appliances^. For'some time past
it,has been diligently at work repairing these defects.' It has introduced
something like discipline iu its armies,
and has provided itself with ironclads
and torpedoes. Tlio nation is oquip-
ped'for war, and as a matter of fact
has a chip on its shoulder, and has
long beon requesting somebody to
knock it off. A short time ago war
with Russia eeomed to be inevitable.
After, thut China appeared to have
selectod-Japan upon which to try her
Itewry-fouiid war-pnwers, Now the
indications aro that the row is to bo
with France. But, if it should como
off, there need not hu muoh speculation its to the result, if tho history of
thousands of years is't'o bo rolled upon. Tlie Chinese will not accomplish
much more with their repeating rifles
than thoy did with their matchlocks in
the wur with England in 184(1, nor
with .their ironclads than thoy did
with their junks in former wars, i'f tho
opinions of so <acute au observer ns

The Winnipeg Free Press very
emphatically condemns tho Dominion license bill. It states tlmt in
Manitoba more licenses will be granted under the new bill than at present exfet, it considers the accommodation required far below what it
should be, and it emphatically pro
nounces against the clauses permitting the licensing of saloons.
There has for some time been considerable apprehension respecting the
condition of Queen Victoria, Rumors of a serious nature havo been
flying about, and it has been stated
definitely that ahe would soon abdicate, and that the Prince of Wales
would take the reins of government.
Our special despatches to-day tend to
confirm the belief that her majesty's
physical condition is far from satisfactory, but whether it justifies the
telegraphic reports we cannot say.
A Special Session.
Saturday's Colonist advocates the
calling of a special session of the
provincial legislature to amend the
settlement act in accordance with
the wishes of the federal government. Unless there are stronger
grounds than we now know to exist
for such a course, we must differ
from the opinion of our contemporary. An extra session could not do
its work before the season had so
far advanced that the results would
be of comparatively little importance.
The postponement of the island railway for another season cannot seriously affect the province. The railway lands can be opened and the
dry-dock taken over without an extra session, as we believe there has
been no misunderstanding at all with
respect to these two points. It is
expected the Dominion parliament
will meet earlier next year, and if
the preliminaries are in the meantime arranged, us suggested by Sir
John, the delay will not embarrass
anybody. The island railway will
be of very little use until the Canadian Pacific Railway has been completed, and that will be three years
at least. The chief concern of this
province now is to have the railway
belt thrown open, and we have Sir
John's promise that that will be
done without delay. Wo do not
think the circumstances would justify the expenditure of from $15,000
to $20,000 for an extra session.
tion tho government should have the
country thoroughly examined by a
compent engineer, and let the best
route be adopted. There are many
people in this provinco who nro interested financially in Port Moody,
and those interests aro quite conflicting. Persons who own lots about
the end of tho north road have an
interest in making that road the
main thoroughfare to Port Moody.
There nre others who hold property
about the terminus, and at the head
of the inlet. Tliese have an interest
in seeing the permanent road terminate on their respective properties.
If the government undertake to say
whore the road shall bo, we hopo
they will employ au engineer who
has no interests to servo whioh might
prejudice his judgment. Let us not
have repeated tho blunder wliich tho
promoters of the Hastings road committed, and discover when too lato
that the road is just where it should
not be. If it is found necessary to
abandon tho north road to Port
Moody, let it be abandoned, if the
cost of a new road should possibly
run over the sum named by tho
petitioners. But wo nro of opinion
that tho holders of property at Port
Moody might fairly be asked to supplement tho government grant. Tbo
road would be built to some extent
on the faith of future developments.
The present community at Port
Moody would scarcely justify a large
expenditure of public money. Property holders profess to have the
fullest faith in tlie future of the
terminus. Let them show their faith
by their works. The opening up of
a good road would put money into
their pockets, and they should gladly
contribute some of the profits towards the construction of the road.
We hope this matter will be fairly
considered by the government and
the property holders, and that an
arrangement may speedily be made
wliich will give ns a first-class road
to Port Moody. And what is done
should be done without delay.
Road to Port Moody,
A petition is being circulated
throughout the city praying the government to appropriate $2000 for
the construction of a road to Port
Moody. We hope this petition will
receive favorable consideration. Although the distance from the river
to the terminus is not more thau 6
miles, it is at the present time impossible to cross with a conveyance
of any kind. There is a passable
road to the water, but from tho end
of that road to the railway station
(about H miles) there is no road at
all. We are not now going to discuss the probability of Port Moody
being the permanent terminus of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, It is now
the terminus, and we havo at present
no definite information which would
justify us in saying that the terminus will be changed. There are
but few actual settlers there yet, but
there are some, and the floating population is considerable. It is confidently believed that track-laying
will begin very soon, and Port Moody
will very shortly become the point
from which construction trains will
go up the road with the materials
necessary for road-bed and bridges,
Three ships have already come with
their cargoes of steel rails, and others are* on the way. Both railway
workers and ships should naturally
draw their supplies from New Westminster and the lower Fraser. Without a road it is impossible for us to
furnish these supplies, except at
great cost and inconvenience. Wo
think it is due to the people of this
oity and the surrounding settlements,
and to Fort Moody, that such a road
should be built. There have been
several routes mentioned. It is
evident to auy observer that the
north road has many disadvantages
whieh it would be very difficult to
overcome. The grades are very
heavy,/wid could not be materially
lightened without a large outlay of
money. There may be other more
feasible routes yet unknown. Before
any tsptaditun U made on oenikruo-
Canadian Indians,
About 105,000 Indians are now living within the Dominion of Canada.
Quebec contains 11,000; Ontario, 17,-
C00; British Columbia, 35,000; Manitoba and the great Northwest 37,000.
Of theso, 81,633 Indians aro living on
reserved land. They cultivate 07,500
acres of land, and own 14,955 horses,
5,708 cows, 1,552 oxen, 2,000 sheep,
6,183 pigs, etc. Last year thoy raised
303,000 bushels of grain, and '200,000
bushels of potatoes. Great encouragement has been given to the government
to assist the Indians with all kinds of
agricultural implements and teach them
the best methods of dealing with their
stock and arable land. And the Indians have been so quick to learn that
nothing liko tho same government expenditure will be henceforth required.
Enterprising Indians are now found to
catch up eagerly new inventions, and
imitate all the experiments which have
been tried with success by thoir moro
civilized neighbors. The extermination of the wild man before tho higher
race has always been a dark blot on
the civilized escutcheon. Perhaps with
more patience, and let us add, humanity, we may turn over a new leaf in
our dealings with tho savage. We
may incorporate hiin, raise him socially, industrially, morally, and instead
of teaching him, as we have hitherto
done, all our vices, impart to him some
of those virtues and arts by which ho
may become an independent citizon of
a larger and freer community than any
his forefathers evor dreamed of. —Echo.

Melancholy Accident.
DROWNED IN THE COQUITLAM RIVER.
Lost Saturday a very sad and painful accident occurred at tho Coquitlain
river, resulting iu the drowning of
-Maud Louisa Black, eldest daughter
of Mr. Geurgo Black, of Granville.
Miss Black had been attending school
at St. Ann's convent in this city, uud
on Saturday the school girls, accom-
Sanied by the Sisters, went out to Mr.
Hack's ranch on the Coquitlam for a
pic-nic. Tho day was boing spent
moat delightfully in roaming about
the fields-and enjoying the beauties
which everywhere attracted the happy
party. Miss Maud was in the best of
spirits, and as tho ranch belonged to
hor father she took great pleasure in
helping forward the various amusements aud seeing that the girls (whom
she considered her guests for the day)
had their till of enjoyment. Some
time in the afternoon they wont down
to tho river whero some of them proposed to bathe, They were wading
about tho edges when Nellie Ward
lost hur footing and fell into tho deep
wator. Maud immediately grabbed at
her und in doing so lost her balance
and fell into tho river. The two girls
struggled iu tho water, but could not
reach the shore. Two of the others
who could swim plunged in and managed to get hold of Nellie and take
her to a log whare she hung on till
rescued, but the current carried Maud
out of their sight. The screams of the
others soon brought Mr. Jos. Wise,
who happened to be working not very
far off. He lost no time in rescuing
Nellie from hor perilous position and
then proceeded to search for Maud.
After some timo he found her undor a
tree which had fallen into the river.
Sho was about 8 feet under water aud
he could not get her out. A messongor
was at onco despatched to Mr, Ed.
Atkins, who Uvea some distance away.
He enmo to tho spot with all haste,
and after a good deal of effort thu two
men succeeded in taking the body out
of the water. But the precious jewel
was gone, and there remained nothing
but the lifeless casket! The body had
been about an hour and n half in tho.
water, and the efforts mado to restore
animation were, of course, utterly
fruitless. The sad news soon spread
over the city and produced a most profound feeling of sympathy and regret.
The funeral took place on Monday
afternoon, when all that is left uf
Maud Louisa Black was committed
with solemn reverence to the silent
grave. The funeral procession was
very large, and the schoolmates of the
dead girl testified their attachment by
acting as pall-bearers. Maud Black
wns a very interesting girl of thirteen,
who gave much promise for the future;
but tho ways of Providence aro past
finding out. The bereaved family
have the heartfelt sympathy of the
whole community.
Among the Icebergs. — It leaked
out, just before'the steamship Bonita
sailed on Saturday, that Bho waa proceeding to the Arctic ocean under private orders. The appearance of Captain Murray, an experienced ice-pilot
on board, nnd the fact that the officers
and crow made extensive purchases of
winter clothing would lead to the opinion that the report is correct. The
steamship will bo absent between two
and three months, and during that
time will go through the Behrtng
Straits nnd into the Arctic Ocean.
Tho object of this trip among the icebergs and polar bears is at present a
profound mystery. Time will divulge

There is not much railway work going on at this place now, most of the
men having gono up towards Harrison
river, Thero are about 50 men working at tho bridges. Tho locomotive
brought up here some timo ago is
standing on the rails ready for work
as soon as the track is laid. I am informed that two steam shovels will be
put ut work to cut down the bonk
along the river front. The license
court met lost week, but it waa constituted solely of tho reeve. Thoro wore
3 applications for new licenses, but the
applicants were of opinion that the
court had not sufficient jurisdiction,
and did not press their claims, Crops
are looking well, and there iB a general
belief that Maple Ridge has a great
future before it. It is rumored that a
largo wharf wilt soon be put up at
Hammond's by the C. P. N. Co,, and
that the station will also be erected
there. There is even a rumor about
machine shops, but that is at least uncertain.

A Beautiful Place.
A correspondent of tho Seattle Post-
Intelligencer, writing from Semiahmoo,
says: - 'The citizens of Semiahmoo do
hope and pray that as other parts of
our beautiful Territory are being so
frequently spoken of, that your generous-minded paper will allow us to dig
up Semiahmoo and surrounding country. Wo know that our friends south
of us are uot partial to Semiahmoo,
but wu suppose as the Puget Sound
country is pretty well filled up now,
that wo will now and then soe a stranger up our way looking for a home.
Wo woll know that a suitable location
can bo found in a fow hours here if
desired, and not far from water communication either, It seems very
strange to us that we have not had an
extension of a mail line running to
British Columbia. New Westminstor
is about 30 miles from Semiahmoo by
water, and'18 or 20 by land, where by
the present rate of steamboat travel
the distance is some 290 miles, We
feel very much in need of steamer communication direct, through Whatcom
County, starting from Seattle and
making Semiahmoo Cityn port of entry.
We are well satisfied that our Government can see the necessity of such a
steamboat communication, and will
soon make Semiahmo a port uf entry.
In regard to new coiners wo would Bay
that when you have seen all you wish
to boo nf the country south of us, come
and soe us at Semiahmoo. We have
somothiug good to eat and a good country to show you. Semiahmoo town
site is beautifully situated and iB destined to bo one of tho greatest ports on
the coast. The harbor is beautiful
aud well protected from the winds prevailing usually, and in fact is almost
land-locked. On tho wost side iu that
fine shoot of water, the Gulf of Georgia, and to the northwest Boundary
Bay. Towing is uot so much needed
to get to Semiahmoo as to the down
Sound country, having moro water
and room. We are but a short distance from the terminus of the Canadian Puciilc Railroad, and there is
much talk of running a branch from
somewhere not far from Now Westminster to Semiahmoo Bay. Let it
come. It iB certain to come sooner or
later. These two grand trunks must
connect near the boundary line un tho
48th parallel, and Seminhmoo, with its
splendid harbor and natural advantages is most likely to be the point
fixed upon. We have fine timber, any
quantity nf salmon, in fact, all kinds
of fish. There is a cannery at Semiahmoo for canning salmon, and it will do
a good business, being carried on by
Messrs, Martin & Yarte- I hear tho
owner and proprietor of the townsite
(at present living in Seattle) offers the
donation of a mill site to any party or
parties who will guarantee putting up
a sawmill, of certain dimensions.
Those contemplating entering sueh a
business would do woll to avail themselves of thia opportunity."

Ottawa, June 15, — Part of the

London, June 16.—A terrible calamity, involving the death of 178
children, occurred in Sunderland,
county Durham, this evening. From
details it appears that an entertainment was given in Victoria hall by a
conjuror, which was attended almost
altogether by children, several thousand Doing in attendance. The accident occurred at the close of the performance, the body of the hall being
entirely cleared of occupants when
some 220 of the little ones camo rushing down stairs from the gallery. At
tho top of tho first flight of stairs was
a door whicli only opened about 20
inches, and thus but one child at a
time could get through. At this point,
while the mass of children were pushing forward, one of thein fell, ana was
unable to rise owing to others crowding. The result was that a great number were pushed down, trampled on
aud suffocated. The sceno was terrific. No effort could stop the mad
rush of affrighted children. They
came on pell-mell, though strangely
without muoh shouting, nnd somo 178
were It nocked down and suffocated to
deathly ..then* trampling on them.
The greater number of bodies, which
were badly mangled from trampling,
laid seven or eight deop. The excitement in town whon the news spread
was terrific. A groat crowd rushed to
the fccene until 20,000 people were surrounding the hall. The feeling was
intense. The authorities ordered out
the (18th infantry to preserve ordor.
The work of getting out the bodies was
begun immediately. They wero laid
out in the hall and the parents of those
killed were admitted to identfy their
children. Heartrending scenes transpired while identification was in progress, mothers of dead children constantly uttering piercing shrieks, nnd
many fainted on discovering the bodies
of their little ones.
ADVICE TO MOTIIEBH.
Are you disturbed at night and broken
of your rest by a sick child suffering and
crying with pain of cutting teeth! If
bo, send at once and get a bottle of Mrs.
Winslow's Soothing Syrup for Children Teething. Its value is incalculable.
It will relieve the poor little sufferer immediately. Depend upon it, mothers,
there is no mistake about it. It cures
dysentery and diarrhoea, regulates the
stomach and bowels, cures wind colic,
softens the gums, reduces inflammation,
and gives tone and energy to tho whole
system. Mrs. Winslow's Soothing
Syrup for Children Teething is pleasant to the taste, and is the prescription
of one of the oldest nnd best female physicians and nurses in the United States,
and is for sale by all druggists throughout the world. Price 25 cents a bottlo.

Roferring to America he said, "Permit
me to address a word to the artizau
classes of the United States, I am no
enemy of tho United States. I fought
her battlo in this country. (Cheers.)
I sympathize with hor as much now as
then. Almost ns much aa if I had been
born on hor soil. I believe tho question in the United States between protection and simply a revenue tariff is
Hearing its solution. The opinion is
growing that irresistible economic facts
nre offering themselves for tho consideration of every statesman and every
intelligent man in the great republic.
An extraordinary condition of things
exists there. No country of any ago
over experienced or dreamed of an actual surplus revenue of thirty millions
sterling. This fact is fatal to a high
protection party. The government
does not know well what to do with
it," After an eloquent allusion to the
war which abolished slavory, ho Baid,
"I believe tho noxt election for President will bo fought on free trudo linos.
Thu groat people of tho United States
will declare it to bo the inalienable
right of overy .American citizen to
spend his money in thu world's cheapest markets."

...■^ He Wanted to Know.
Old Mm, Peggy Pot tenon, a wealthy
old lady, who owns a large plantation
several milea helow the eity, oame to
town the other day,and vUitedher
favorite preooher, the Rev. Mr. Mul-
kittle.   The boy did not have a very
Sood ohanoe at her, lor her own volu-
illty precluded anything lite the pro-
aentatfon of a suitable occasion. He
only called her attontion to a few propositions, exhibiting such precocity
that the old lady had a desire to know
him more intimately. She manifested
a desire to be identified in the shaping
of the child's growing mind, and just
before ahe atarted home she implored
Mulkittle to allow the boy to accompany her. "I will bring him back in
• day's time," she said. "I would bo
enjoy taking him out among the sheep
and pigs, and listen to his charming
little comments. Oh, do please let
him oome. You would like to go with
nu, wouldn't youl" turning to the
boy.   "There, I knew you would.
Finally it was agreed that the boy
ahould accompany Mrs. Potteraon,
and very soon, aeated behind the kind-
hearted old lady, ho waa riding rapidly
down the river road. 	
"You are such a tine little follow,
aaid Mrs. Potteraon, "that I'd like for
you to come and live with me."
"Have you got any ducks)" aaked
the boy.
"Yea, I've got moro than a hundred." , .
"Ia your ducks the kmu that carries
mud around on thoir bills 1"
"Yea, somo of thein do."
"Which ones?"
"Oh, any of thom; it don't mako
any difference. You are suoh a bright
little boy," and ahe hugged the child.
"Have you got any goata""
"Yes, lots ot 'em.
"WUl they butt!"
"Yes, some of 'em."
"Which ones!"
"Oh, I don't know; just any ono
that takes a notion."
"Whioh one takes a notion!"
"Firat one or the other."
"Have you got little calves ?"
"The prettiest you ever saw."
"How many have you got 1"
"I don't know exactly."
"Why don't you know exactly) If
the calves had their way you oouldn't
get any milk from the cows, could
you I Did any of the cows evor kick
you 1"
"My little man, you ask so many
question! that I don't knew which one
to answer first,"
"Are you married ?"
"I was married, but my husband
waa killed in the army."
"WaB he mad!"
"I don't know."
"Then what did he want to fight
for!"
"You don't seem to understand.
There was a war between the North
and South, and my husband fought
for the South."
"Waa the Nortii and South mad at
each ether!"
"Yes, and tried to kill each other.'
"What did thoy get mad about 1"
"Why, the South went out of the
Union.'1
"An' did the North leavo the gate
open ao the South could got out 1"
"Hush now, Willie, we're getting
most home."
"But I wanter know. An' when
your husband went out the gate they
shot him, did they 1"
"You must huah, now, deary."
"But I wanter know. Did your
husband go to heaven!"
"Tm, he did."
"How do you know!"
"Because — whoa! come around
here!" and she turned around and began to drive rapidly toward the city.
"Where are you goin' 1" asked the
boy.
-'Going to tako you home. A saint
couldn't stand you. Git up, herel"
and the horso almost flew along the
road. "Git up!" and she struck the
horse with the whip. The dry Band
flew high in tho air. "Runaway!"
peoplo shouted as they rushed to their
front gates.
"What's the matter!" demanded
the Rev. Mr. Mulkittle, rushing to
the gate aa the horse, panting, knocked
down a panel of fence and stopped.
"Herel" cried Mm. Potteraon,
"take the boy. I've got enough of
him." And she lifted him from the
aeat.
"She's the ohariot of fire," aaid the
boy, aa the buggy dashed away.—

In this latter sum being W,G(>8,078.

Talking Tommy.
A PARROT WHO SPEAKS LIKE A HUMAN BEING.
Next to the moat garrulous woman
in Toronto, "Tommy/'ThomasScholee'
parrot, has perhaps the most to Bay, of
any biped. Mr. SoholeB keeps a hotel
in the west end, and having a fancy
for animals and birds, he has succeeded in educating a parrot to such a degree in language, that one would almost imagine, to hear it apeak, that it
was really possessed of the faculty of
understanding and conversing in the
English language. A News reporter
happened to drop in at the hotel the
other day and the proprietor brought
out hia poll for exhibition. "Tommy"
is a very handsome Bpecimen of a parrot; he is grey as far as the tail, the
underpart of which is of a beautiful
red color. Ho has a habit of keeping
himself very clean and neat, and as he
sat complacently on his owner's shoulder, he looked as neat as a pin, and as
wisB as Solomon. Besides being an
expert linguist, Tommy is a good gymnast, and can perform various tricks
one would hardly imagine a bird capable of. Mr. ScholeB, in speaking of
his bird, said that he was about four
years old. He got him when he was
about six months old. Tommy was
always quick to learn, and aftor a
year's training ho could Bay a great
deal. He used to hang above the bar,
but the languago of some of tho cb-
cheworB of the blue ribbon, who would
come in to slake their thirst, not being
too pioUB, Tommy was removed to the
moro sanctified atmusphore of the
kitchen, where profanity nover entered, and the bird's vernacular would
not be imperilled. The fame of the
bird spread abroad, and when Robinson's show came around here last fall,
his owner was offered 8500 for him,
This was refused, and Mr. Scholes said
that 81000 would not purchase him.
' 'Now, Tommy," Baid the proprietor,
"these gentlemen want to hoar you
speak. What havo you got to say for
yourself ?"
"Ovor the river," replied Tommy.
He was mad and perverse, for the
saloon wns cold, and besides he waB
suffering from n fall ho met with from
hia trapeze the day before.
His owner gave him a slight tap with
his finger, when Tommy yelled, "Stop
that,"
"Will you answer properly when
you're spoken to?"
"I will, nnd don't you forget it,'
answered Tommy.
"Say, Tommy, what does the cook s
fellow do when he comes to see her >"
"Smackl smack! smack!"
"He kisaos her, doos he; woll, that's
dreadful.   Now, what does she say V
"Get out."
"Now, Tommy, what will you have?
"Beer and whiskey."
"Supposing a dog barka what noise
does he make?"
"Bow wow, bow wow."
"Well, Tommy, when I want to go
down town what do I do ?"
"Take a drink."
This was an injudicious miatake on
Tommy's part, and tho proprietor assured the spectators that it was lack of
attention on the parrot's part in hearing the question that caused tho mistake. Everybody acquiesced with a
smile, and the question was repeated.
"Whistle for the car."
A sories of other questions were
given him, all of which were answered
in a remarkably clever manner.
Ono feature in the bird's voice was
its freedom from the jarring shrillness
characteristic of the parrot's note; and
every word he uttered was as distinct
as though it were uttered by a human
being. Tommy was then put through
a series of gymnastics. He climbed up
a rope at his master's bidding, hand
ovor Lund, came down head first;
walked along a horizontal bar, on
whicli he turned back and forward
somersaults; made an astonishitig leap
from a bar to another ring, and then
let loose a rope that was attached to
the ring by a clasp. An astonishing
feature of this was tho fact that the
rope weighed considerably more thnn
the bird himself. Finally ho ended
the performance by striking a fire
alarm with his beak ou a glass globe.
A spectator was asked to give tho
number of any box. Thirty-four was
chosen.
"Strike three, Tommy."
"One-two-three."
"Now strike four."
"One-two-three-four."
The spectators, of whom thero woro
quite a number by this time, were delighted and astonished at his preco-
ciouanesB on the bird's part, but Tommy took the compliments with the
serenity of a judge.
His owner seemed justly proud of
him, and Tommy is considered the
biggest man in that house.—Toronto

Torpedo Warfare.
Torpedo attack iu warfare is receiving pretty closo study abroad, and
English authorities are viewing the
subject in alrnoBt every possible light.
Altogether, it seems that the attack
has considerably the beat uf the defence in thia case, for nfter summing
up all the known methods of resisting
torpedo-boat attack, there seems to be
comparatively littlo comfort to be gained. Torpedo nettings, the use of torpedoes from the ship whioh is attacked,
machine guns and direct fire uf largo
artillery are all considered, and in each
case the verdict has been that there is
more uncertainty than is dosirable.
The fast torpedo boats capable of discharging either long projectiles or torpedoes having enormous bursting
charge are decidedly ugly customers,
and no certain plan has bo far beon suggested by whioh their attack may be
diverted, It is all the more unsatisfactory because tha small torpedo boats
can easily discharge such missiles at a
speed considerably greater than that
of the fastest ironclads and he able to
keep up a speed of twenty miles an
hour at a time while but few, if any,
of the ironclads will be able to make
anything like that speed after having
beon at sea two or threo months, The
final outcome of all the suggestions
seems to be that Galling guns of 1 -inch
bore are, so far aa known, the most
effective weapon against torpedo boats.
