ftom a chemical point of view,
man is composed of thirteen elements, of which five are gusoa and
eight are solids. If we consider the
chemical composition of n man of
tho average weight of 154 pounds,
wo will find that he is composed in
large part of oxygen, whioh is in a
state of oxtreme compression. * In
foot, a man weighing 154 pounds
contains ninety-seven pounds of oxygen, the volume of which, ut ordinary temperature, would exceed 980
cubic foet. The hydrogen is much
less in quanity, there being less
than fifteen pounds, but which, in a
free state, would ocupy a volume of
2,800 cubic feet. The three other
gases aro nitrogen, nearly four
pounds; cMorim, about twenty-six
ounces; and Jlourine, threo and a
quarter ounces. Of tho solids, carom stands at tho head of the metalloids, thore being forty-eight pounds.
Next comes phosphorus, twenty-six
ounces, and sulphur, three and a
quarter ounces; sodium, two and a
quarter ounces; and lastly, iron, one
aud a quarter ounces. It is needless to say that the various combinations made hy these thirteen elements are almost innumerable. —
Ie Practicien.
War has come to bo moro a tiial
of skill rather than of strength, and
the chief elicit of combatants is
rather to dostroy. each other's works
than eaeh other's men. Tho tendency has therefore been to make-
stronger defences, and more powerful weapons. Every eighth of an
inch added to the thickness of the
iron plates of steamships has necessitated a development in tho powers
of the guns used to destroy them;
so that instruments of war have in
this way beoame exceedingly unwieldy. Of this we hare just had
two proofs. One was tho collision
of tho British ironclads Ajax and
Devastation, both double screw, iron
turret, armor plated ships; and the
othor was the dismounting! by its
own charge, of a new eight-inch gun
on its first trial on the United
States inan-ot'-wnr Atlanta. This
was the largest gun in our Navy.
Another item of news which reported that lightning had struch u warship and mode a hole through it,
suggests another danger to which
they are especially exposed, and a
possible remedy to the unwieldi-
ness of presont innovations in destructive warfare-another kind of
thunder-bolt to take the place of the
presont "thunder-bolts of war." Who
shall say that electricity cannot be
made available in the arts of war as
woll as in thoso of peace?— N. Y.

Canning fruit iu salicylic acid,
and especially for exhibition purposes, was recently referred to in
these columns by A. T. Grant,
Worchester County, Mass. In reply to an inquiry for detailed information as to tlie process, our correspondent kindly forwarded tlio following statement: "Use no heat.
The fruit should be put into the
glass cans fresh and just ns picked,
and for looks be shaken down as
solid aa possible, but not to bruise
the fruit, us berries shrink some,
but not nearly as much as when
dono the old way by cooking. Then
prepare a solution of salicylic acid,
thirty-live grains, sugar eight ounces,
with ono quart of water, and /when
dissolved pour ovor the fruit. After
about one hour a little more of tho
solution may be added, seeing that
the cans are full, then seal ns usual.
Of course the cans cannot lie tight
the same ns when sealed hot, because the shrinkage while cooling
causes a suction so don't fear if tho
cans leak, as they certainly will a
little. Nothing can be finer than
fruit thus put up 'for tho fair' und
similar uses, For tho table we hnve
decided to uso pint cans so as to eat
the entire contents of a oan when
first opened, Then one can count
on putting up strawberries, raspberries and blackberries and find them
good, but blueberries aro not as
good as shavings. Corn, beans and
peas aro put up a little different,
but as wc did not succeed with them,
cannot advise trying them."—Popular Cardcning.

WRECKED UV A CVCLONE.
Chicago, Aug. 14.—A spepial from
Fort Madiaon, Iowa, says the Catholic
church at St. Paul, 18 miles west of
there, wns wrecked by a cyclone this
evening.   Much damage was done.
MOKE ADOUT THE WRECKED TRAIN.
Chicago, Aug. 14.—An Inter-Ocean
Forrest, 111., special says: Your correspondent has found a number of men
at Piper City who positively contradict the testimony of Timothy Cough-
Ian, section boss, that he and his gang
put out all fires along the track before
they left their work Wednesday.
These men were of the party whioh
went from Piper City to the wreck on
a hand car. They Bay as thoy passed
along the track east of the wreck they
saw tire burning in hedges and grass
all tho way along. Tho best evidence
obtainable is that the fire was built by
section liands within 100 rods of the
burning bridgo where it was left.
Thoro is a general sentiment among
residents hero that the seotion men
woro largely to blame. Very few
peoplo, except officials of the road,
givo any credence to the incendiary
theory. Thero was not nearly bo
much robbing at tho wreck as at lira,
supposed. \Vntchcs nnd rings thought
to havo been stolon nro being found
among tho debris as it is cleared away.
A NARROW ESCAPE.
Nebraska City, Neb., Aug. 14.—A
report haa just been received in town
co-day of another fiendish attempt to
wreck a train on tho the B. & M.
road. At a place 10 miles west of the
city last night as the passenger train
was crossing a trestle bridge across a
deep ravine the woodwork wu discovered ou lire. An investigation disclosed tiro fact that the stringers and
braces wero entirely consumed and the
bridge was in a shaky condition. < The
fact that the train was an unusually
light one prevented a fearful catastrophe. Detectives aro working up the'
matter.
SUULUNG RAOE.
Svracc.se, N.V., Aug. 14.—A sculling race for a $300 badge and a purse
of $500 was rowed on Ouandaga Lake
this afternoon. The course was li
miles and return. The water was
smooth as glass. Hamm drew first,
Bubear Becond, Courtney third, Row
fourth and Henley fifth place. Henley
caught tbe water first and rowing
furiously at 37 strokes a minute, shut
ahead, Bubear was close up with
Courtney trailing in thenar, Henley's
pace was too tiemeudous to be kept
up nnd Hnniin and Courtney and Ross
gradually forged ahead. At tho first
quarter-mileCourtney led by onelenuth
ahead. Ross lapped Hamm by half a
length, Those positions were kent up
to the first mile, when. Ross and Hamm
gained on Courtney, passing him. At
the mile and a quarter Ilinrini now
spurted with 34 strokes and made a
turn of two lengths ahead of Courtney
and Ross. Courtney tamed the inside
stake and rowod in poor form the remainder of tlie way. Hamm increased
his lead and won four lengths ahead of
Roea, who was second, Courtney 3rd,
a length and a half behind Robb, and
Henley 4th nnd Bubear 5th. Time,
18:20, but it was concedod that the
course was fully a minute slow.
Courlney claimed bis seat broke and
thnt ho tried to remedy it when ho was
making a turn. In the pools Courtney waa a favorite selling even against
tho favorites. Courtney to-night challenged Hamm to row fur 8500 rrsido
within three weeks. Hamm will accept. Hamm rows O'Connor at Toronto on the 23rd.
THE POPE'S .H'llILEE.
Rome, Aug. 14.—Tho Oasette■ liItalia states that King Humbert, thiuiigh
his chaplain, is sounding tlie Pope to
ascertain whether ho will accept a jubilee presont from tho king. The
nucoll of Portugal and Princess Clo-
tildo send bountiful presents,
IIIIITISH POLITICAL AFFAIRS.
London, Aug. 14.—A whip has heen
issued calling upon Pnrnellito mem-
burs to attend tho commons Thursday
noxt. \V. H. Smith is expect wl to
announce in tho commons Mondny
that the tithes bill will be abandoned.
Mathews, home secretary, refused to
interfere in tho case of tho Jew
Lipske, nnd the solicitor of the condemned man hns consequently sont a
telegram to the queen imploring hor

Ferdinand's enthusiastic reception.
Rustchuk, Aug. 14.—A vaat multitude assembled to moot Prince Ferdinand to-day and extraordinary enthusiasm was displayed. At the banquet
in the evening M. Mckifforoff, who
was one of the leaders of the conspiracy whioh resulted in the deposition of
Princo Alexander, said: "Wo will
cover the Balkans with corpses rnthor
than allow our enemies to enter our
country.        %
THE VTE INDIANS.
Denver, Aug. 14.— The situation
near Meeker, whore renegade Whit*
River Utes wore reported as having
taken the war path, remains the same
as far as can bo learned. No news
has been received from the scene of
trouble since laat night. Adjt.-Oen.
West arrived at Glonwood to-night
and will look over the ground in the
morning and report to dor. Adams
later iu ll e day. Gov. Adams received .
no wore from Washington yet advising him what action will be taken.
Ho, however, received a telegram
from Gen. Ray, commandant of tho
post at Omaha, inquiring tbe nearest
railway point wliere Indians are supposed to be camped. Capt Goalin
and a company of state militia composed of 60 men arrived at Olenwood
from Aspen this evening and wen
joined by the adjt.-general.
TEEMER beats hanlan.
Toronto, Aug. 14.—More than 15,-
000 persons saw the Hanlan-Teemer
race to-day. Thero was no betting to
speak of. Every one wanted to bet
on Hanlan. Toemer's few friends
hung bock unless they got long odds,
and even at that there were few beta
made; 300 to 200 on Hanlan waa repeatedly offered but there were no
takers. At 6:05 the race began. Teemer shot ahead, pulling 33 strokes to
Hanlon's32. Teemer amidst intense
excitement forged ahead and waa soon
leading by nearly 2 lengths, He kept
ahead, pulling a strong, vigoroua and
steady stroke, and although Hanlan
did his level best he could not get In
line with him. When about a mile
had been covered Teemer went slightly
out of hia course but quickly discovered his mistake. Hanlan kept straight
for his buoy and at this time it wu
thought he was leading, but when
Teemer got into hia own water again
those who thought so were quiokly un-
deceived. At the turning of the
buoys both went too far south and
Teemer struck his buoy, which lost
him a fen' strokes. He turned his
buoy five seconds ahead of Hanlan,
who lost ground by going too far
south, and on the home stretch Teemer was leading .by three lengths.
Teemer at this time was pulling 34
and Hanlan 29. About 200 yarda past
tho turning buoy a yacht accidentally
fouled Teemer and he again lost four
or live strokes. About 500 yards from
finish Hanlan appeared to make a
final effort, but it wu no use. Teemer
kept the lead and finished 2 lengths
ahead of Hanlan. Official time given
was 19:20, although... some peruana .
made it from 19:31 to i9:34. There
was was little or no cheering at the
finish, people seeming thoroughly disappointed and amazed at the result;
and so ended a great nee, making
John Teemer champion oarsman of
America.

Provincial Exhibition.
An official announcement respecting the annual exhibition of the
British Columbia Agricultural Association appears in another column.
As our readers already doubtless
know, the exhibition is to be held
this year at Chilliwhack, on the
28th, 29th and 30th of September.
The Chilliwhack people, at whose
solicitation this new departure was
made, are showing a great deal of
enterprise in connection with the
affair, and declare that they mean
to make it a success. They have
greatly extended the agricultural
grounds owned by the Chilliwhack
Agricultural Society, ond are eroding a very commodious building for
the exhibits, and a large extent of
pens for the accommodation of stock.
As this is the first time the provincial ihow has been granted to Chilliwhack, the directors are very anxious to make it first-class, and hope
to have the aid ol all agriculturists
and producers throughout the province. The prize list has not yet
been issued, which is certainly very
unfortunate, as it ought to have
been distributed early this mouth.
The directors announce, however,
that it will be ready in a few days,
and we hope the announcement is
made upon reliable information. We
need not again refer to the great
importance of these exhibitions. A
few weeks ago we drew attention
to the special importance of making
this exposition especially good. This
province has of late been profusely
advertised over the whole world,
and many people will visit the show
for the purpose of satisfying themselves by personal inspection whether our resources are equal to the
report of them that has gone abroad.
The Indian Tax.
Then seems to be a general impression that Indians in this province should be exempt from all taxes,
even when engaged in employments
where they come directly into com
petition with white labor. This
opinion is based on the fact that
the lands now possessed by the
whites once belonged to the Indians,
or at least was occupied by them;
and that these Indians receive no
bounties from the government. We
are by no means certain that the
imposition of an Indian tax would
be an act of wisdom, but at the
same time it must be admitted that
the present position of these people
with respect to the provincial government is not quite satisfactory.
It is estimated that about one-third
of the entire cost of the administration of justice in this province is
on account of the Indians. Considerable numbers of them are always found in the gaols, and the
whole expense of keeping them falls
upon the province. The very fines
imposed upon these people under
the Indian act are lost to us, because they go into the federal treasury. At tbe same time the Indians
enjoy the same protection from the
administrators of the law as are enjoyed by others who contribute
largely to tho revenue. It is manifestly unfair .that this province
should be compelled to provide ample protection for the Indians, and
pay large sums for the administration of justice to them, while they
contribute nothing at all to the provincial treasury. At least one third
of the population of this country is
composed of Indians, who are not
revenue-producing, and under pros-
ant circumstances the other two-
thirds are forced to bear the whole
expense of the provincial government. Some time ago these facts
were brought under the notice of
Sir John Macdonald, and he sug
gested that under the circumstances
the Indians who were off their reserves and competing in the labor
market ought to be taxed. We suppose the action of the provincial
authorities in imposing a native tax
this year waa the result of that suggestion. The matter was brought
to the notice of Hon. Thos. White
by a deputation from the board of
trade which waited on him a few
days ago in this city, but Mr. White
expressed no opinion as to the wisdom at the practice. Unquestionably many of the Indians in this
country are exceedingly valuable as
Workers, and if those who have
learned to make themselves useful
vera forced . to remain on the re-
•erves, it would be a gnat misfortune. But we think if the Indians
an to be exempted from taxation
thia province haa very excellent
ground upon whioh to make a claim
against the federal government for
a special allowance to meet the
special circumstances. In no other
province of tho Dominion do similar
circumstances exist, and if our government decides to abandon the Indian tax (which we think would be
wise), it ought to apply at once for
such a grant from the Dominion as
would recoup it for the enormous
expanse involved lta the administration of justice among these wards
of thenafon,,     ,    . ,       .. .

MARSHAL NEY.
. Beet tie aiMp is, north Carolina t
BT PIlOF. J. D. nODQES.
On the flrl ot May 1887 the remains ot
Peter Stuart Ney, a soldier of tho French
devolution, und, more recently, a school-
(eriirher in a retired portion of North
I 'niolinsr, whose mysterious demeanor and
history were such as to rivet tho universal conviction, among his pupils and
put mns, that he was none other than the
illustrious Warelinl Ney, were disinterred
for expert examination.
The day was a line one, and hundreds
of tho leading citizens ot this (Rowan)
and adjoining counties, including a number of Key's old pupils, press reporters, a
modeler; Ney's biographer, and a corps of
physicians, were here at the cemetery,
which is two miles from Third Creek Station, on the Western North Carolina
Iluilroail and ten miles Irom Salisbury,
tho county Bite.
Before stating the result of the investigation, it is deemed not inappropriate to
sketch, in brief, a few incidents of the life
ol r. S. Ney, since his arrival in this
country, as gathered from his pupils and
culled from various newspaper accounts.
Peter Stuart Ney landed at Charleston,
S. C, on the 20th ol January, 1816. After
remaining in South Carolina a short time
Ire removed to Virginia, where he resided
until about the year 1820. when he came
to Davie County, North Carolina, and en-
gaged in school-teaching. He taught tho
Greek and the Latin language, as well aa
the English. He was exceptionally good
in mathematics, ot which ho seemed to be
very fond. Ho was a man of splendid
executive ability, and a rigid disciplinarian. However, he easily secured the
love, amounting almost to veneration, of
his pupils, who, in the language of one of
them, "would nave fought for him and
■lied for him had it been necessary."
"He was a man a little under six feet in
bight." (His length was found to be flvo
feet ten inches, by. actual measurement,
made by the corps of physicians, in May.)
"Ho was not very fleshy, but quite muscular, and weighed about two hundred
pounds. His head was nearly bald, and
showed a scar on ono side—the lett—extending from the temple toward the center of the crown. His face was slightly
marked with small-pox."
On one occasion, he communicated to a
pupil, Col. T. F. Huston, tho particulars
of tl o Russian campaign, recounting the
'iillculticB of the retreat, and the hardships endured, and narrating how Napo-
icon embraced him and called him 'the
bravest of the brave." He gave to Colonel Huston the secret of his escape. He
stated that the platoon detailed to do the
bloody work were soldiers of his com-
inadd; that they had been aacretly in-
si r noted to 'aim high'; that he refused to
.rllow tho bandage to be placed over his
I'vcs; that he himself gave the command
io 'Are' j that they fired and he fell and
was pronounced dead by the attending
I'lrysicians who where in the conspiracy;
' init his body was at once turned over to
nis friends who secretly conveyed him to
Bordeaux, whence he sailed for America.
Colonel Huston narrates that some
years since he met, near Sedalia, Mo., his
present home, a Frenchman named Phillip Petrie, and that this Frenchman related to him the following storv:
"I once belonged to Marehal Ney's command. After the fall of Napoleon and
'.he capture of Ney, I deserted the French
army, and making my way to Bordeaux
in December 1815, shipped as a seaman
ou board a vessel bound for Charleston;
S. C. When several days out, I noticed
ri man on board whose appearance struck
mo forcibly, and I thought I knew him.
Upon reflection, I concluded it must be
Marshal Ney. when seeing him a second
time I accosted him, and told him I
i bought I knew him, 'Who dou you think
I am ?' he questioned. I replied: 'My
old commander, Marshal Ney.' In a very
giulf tone he responded: 'Marshal Ney
was shot in Paris, sir,! and turning upon
Iris heel he went to hu cabin, and I saw
him no more, though we were thirty five
days reaching Charleston."
From a letter to The landmark, written
May 27th, 1880, by Burgess Galther, Esq.,
into member of the General Assembly
of North Carolina,- from Davie County, I
■ |note substantially: "I was myself apu-
j.rl ol Mr. Ney in 1832. One day I saw
liim have a large manuscript in his hand,
which wo had just completed, and which
lie said he would leavo in his trunk to tell
us who he was shauld ho die in this country. Soon after this, he told me he
thought he would soon be permitted to
return to France; that young Napoleon
was about coming to manhood, and would
noon bo Emperor of France; that then he
could return to his native land; that he
would be Marshal Nov; that people
thought Marshal Ney had been shot;
that Louis had ordered old veterans to
shoot him; that on the way to the place
of execution an officer whispered to him
to fall at the word 'Are,' and leave the
rest to hia friends; that he did aa directed, the balls all passing over him, struck
the planking, in his rear, at the proper
hight."
The Rev. Mr. Albea, an aged but at
one time a prominent minister ol the
Methodist Church, saya:
"I waa one of Ney's pupils. He was a
noble-looking man, and snowed his military training in his every step and movement. I do not hesitate to say that in
my opinion he was none other than the
great Marshal of-the Empire."
Mrs. M. 0. Dalton, a lady now living,
of unusual intelligence and information,
at whoso father's house Mr. Ney boarded
for several sessions, says:
"I am in thoroughly convinced oi the
last that he waa Marshal Ney aa I am of
my own existence .... I saw him once,
whon he had been drinking perhaps,
tuken up from the road in a stupor and
i laid across a horse to be carried to the
house. This aroused him, and hia involuntary expression, aa I well remember,
was: 'What I put. the Duke of Elchingon
on a horse like a sack 1 Put me down? 1"
r    Dr. J. B. R. Adams says:
"I have been entirely satisfied In my
own mind since 1842 that P. S. Ney, who
I aught school within a few hundred yards
of my residence for two years or more
and is now buried in Third Creek Church-
vard, was the veritable Marshal Ney."
Wilford Lumer, Esq., of Turnersburg,
a large cotton manufacturer, universally
respected says:
'1 went to school to Peter Stuart Ney
i in 1826 and '26, and knew him well.   I
have no doubt that ho was Marehal Ney."
Mr. 0. G. Foard, than whom no man in
North Carolina stands higher or is more
respected, at whose houso Mr. Ney died,
Inrlievcs him to have been the great
Marshal and none other.   Mr. Foard
says when Ney waa on hla death-bed, ho
several times in flts of delirium exclaimed:
"Oh, France) France.my Country; why
lould I not, like Besslerea die for theo" I
Ills laat words, saya Mr. Foard, were:
"Bcssleros has fallen, and the old guard
1 is defeated- now let mo die" I
Dr. Draper, President of the Historical
Society of Wisconsin, having learned ol
the incidents narrated in this paper, has
Instituted an extended and systematic
; plan of correspondence, to the end that he
' may ascertain, as far as possible, the (acts
that may establish the identity ol Petel
Stuart Ney with that of Napoleon's great
Marshal, or the contrary, as the facts may
indicate. Having learned that Marsha)
Ney, at one time, had undergone the operation 61 trephining, Dr. Draper wrote
J. G. Ramsay, M. D., a prominent man
and one of the foremost physicians in this
section of tlio country, requesting that the
body of P. S. Ney, whicli has been buried
in Third Creek Churchyard, Rowan
County, since November, 18-10, be disinterred and tlie skull examined with refer-
ence to the operation said to havo been
performed. Accordingliy, Dr. Ramsay
issued a notice in the local press inviting
his brethren of the medical profession tc
meet him at tlio grave of P. a. Ney, May
tlie 3rd, 1887.
' An an early hour that morning, the
writer was at lire grave, finding that hundreds of others had preceded him.
The marble slap, 00 inches x 24 inches
x 2 inches, standing at tho head of the
grave, contained the following inscription:
In memory
of
Peter Stewart Nev,
A native of France
and soldier of the French Revolution
under
Napoleon Bonaparte,
who departed this life,
November 15th, 1840,
Aged 77 years.    ,
At about 2 o'clock, P. M., tho vault
which had been closed forty-two years
was reopened.   The skull on the right side
was fairly well preserved, the frontal,
parietal aud temporal bones still adhering.   Tho occipital bone had dropped
apart.
Ou the left side of tho skull, tho frontal
and parietal bones still adhered, hut the
temporal had dropped from its place. On
this side, the loft, a portion of the skull
was gone—decayed.
The following is the report of the examining physicians:
"Third Creek Church, 1
r Rowan County       \
May 3rd, 1887.      S
"The undersigned physicians wish to
state that according to previous notice, we
did to-day causo to De exhumed the body
of P. S. jjey, In the presence of a great
number of witnesses, somo of them from
Washington, D. C, Raleigh, and other
parts of the country.   Wo found some of
the bones only, and there in state of such
decay wo cannot state positively whether
the skull had ever been trephined or not.
We made deligent searcli for bullets said
to have been lodged in the body but
found none.   Wo, however, succeeded so
far as to ascertain that the skeleton was
about five feet ten inches long, and the
skull around nbout the eyes about twenty-
four inches in circumference.

f     DELIRIUM TREMENS.
Browne, in the work on 'The Medical
Jurisprudence of Insanity," arranges all
drunkards in ono or other of the following
classes:
Pint. Tho Accidental; as children
who, unconscious of tho oflects of alcoholic liquors, drink to excess; and men
led away by joy, by friends, by physical
feelings, and unintentionally drinking tc
excess.
Second. Tho Regular; ho who geb
inebriated whenever it - suits - him, al
stated, regular times and seasons. He
is a sano drunkard; his passion is un*
der control, but when ho will he throws
the rein on its neck and lets it go. When
he chooses he can refuse to look 'upon the
wine when it is red, when it giveth his
color to the cup, when it moveth itsell
aright;' and ho does refuse when he
thinks tho serpent's bite and the adder's
sting will be too sharp and venomous foi
his present purpose; but at other times
he cares not for woo or sorrow, contentions or babblings, wounds or redness ol
eyes.
Third. The Tippler; one almost, but
not altogether, a drunkard; one evei
drinking, but never drunk. He oftener
obtrudes hissoaked and spirit-logged body
upon the physician than his deeds upon
the lawyer. Ho agrees not with the
Japanese maxim, 'to drink seldom, but
heartily when at it, is better than to tip.
le frequently and in small quantities.'
Fourth. The Habitual: through repeated indulgences the habit to indulge be-
becomes stronger, tho bodily craving
grows in strength and other motives lose
their weight In this way tho moral sense
becomes obscured, tho seli-respect and
the self-restraint which depend so much
upon tho moral estimate oi one's worth
are no longer guiding principles of life;
the man has become the slave of an artificial eppetite, and is no longer the free
ruler of his own conduct. His organism
rules ova him, and the rule is not that ol
a constitutional monarch who is governing in conformity with tho laws of health,
but the tyranny of a despot who is ruling
with the caprice of disease. Here we
pass from habitual drunkenness to dipsomania. Dr. Crichton Brown says, 'The
essential distinction appears to mo to be
that in habitual drunkenness tho indulgence of the propensity is voluntary, and
may bo foregone, and in dipsomania it is
not so. Tho drunkard, as a rule, urges
somo external excuso for his debauch,
whereas wit tho dipsomaniac it is tho internal craving. With tlio dipsomaniac it
is the tit) a tergo, with tho drunkard it is
the vit a fronts. Tho dipsomaniac is
driven Into the debauch by an impulse;
tho drunkard seeks the intoxicating ef-
Fifty team a<io an Amorican visiting
in Loudon nnd who saw tho Queen shortly beforo her coronation describod her
thus: "She is a dainty little maiden, only
4 feet 10 inches in height, with a delicate
figure, flower-like face, a slender arm and
exquisitely poised hoad. The faco was a
little pensive, but nevertheless mirthful,
the corners of the mouth turning up decidedly. Tho tendency of the upper
lipp was to curl, and like most English
people she held her lips slightly open,
allowing a mere suggestion of whito teoth
to appear. She wore a simple gown of
soft white India muslin, bound round the
waist with a satin ribbon. Her waist was
an English one, long and slender. Tho
dross was embroidered with field daisies
and strings of pearls were around about
her throat. Her arms were quite hare
and without ornaments, nnd sho wore no
rings on her slim lingers." This is a
charming picture, and it seems too bad
thnt time should havo reversed and
blurred the outlines. Thore is only ono
feature of that charming girl whlcn the
Queen yet retains, and that is the really
regal bearing; the erect figure, uplifted
head and firm step sho still retains, which
made tho spectators declare her a tall
woman as sho entered Westminster Abbey fifty years ago leading that triumphal
procession.—The World.

More Brick Blocks.—Wo learn today that Messrs. Beckett ifc^Co., of

for the erection of two moro brick

We understand that as soon as arrangements can be made several other
buildings will be erected on other lots
in this city belonging to tho same
estate. And so tiio work of improvement goes on.

son ol a former chief priest and rabbi
in Jerusalem, highly educated and has
made an enviable reputation in tho
United States by tlioso cnlortaiincnts
on the customs and manners of the
orientals. Aa a speaker on tho subjects announoed he has no equal and
in Polland he gave the most successful ci u se of lectures ever delivered ra
that city under any auspices. The
Y. M. 0. A. authorities take pleasure
in commending him to both Jews and
Gentiles and believe the community
will appreciate the pains they have
taken to secure this great oriental
traveller and explorer. He iB pro.
nounced to be quickwitted, original,
fresh and humorous, and these facts
together with the tableaux illustrations by twenty persons of this community, all in costume, ought to bo
sufficient to secure the patronage of
all who appreciate valuable information as woll as a very pleasing entertainment. Wad el Ward and wile are
the only persons of Palestine and of
the Levitical tribe who have ever appeared in America.

A Suggestion.
Editoh Columbian. —X notice aome
of our largo coutructora have introduced a custom practised in all well
regulated cities whero extensive works
are carried on, both public and pri
vute, und tlie fact of its being u very
old custom goes to provo it is not done
at a loss to thoso practising it. I refer
to the quiting of the mechanics and
laborers on publio and private works
at 4 o'clock on Saturday. I do not
think our board of works would lose
anything by allowing the men at work
for the corporation to quit at 4 o'clock
on Saturday. There is muoh to bo
said in favor of it, and very little
against. The men employed usually
are faithful workmen, and a wook'B
boiling in the sun deserves 2 hours
grace to cool off. I would ask the
council to give this a trial, feeling assured there would be uo loss to tlio
city by so doing,       John E. Lord.

By Telegraph.
Berlin, Aug. 14.—With Princo BiB-
marck's return from Varzin the report
of diplomatic circles, unbroken for
weeks, has been succeeded hy a commotion. His coming conference with
Count Kalnaky at KiBsingen is expected to lead to new developments in the
polioy of the Austria-German alliance
against Russia, The overtures made
by Russia through Count Schowvaloff,
Russian ambassador at Berlin, who is
to take part in tho conference, were
coldly received, and were not pushed.
Instead of conferring with the the
Russian representative, Princo Bismarck, during his stay at Kissingen,
will receive the envoy of tho Italian
government. It is said the meeting
will result in a renewal of tlie Italian
alliance, and its public announcement
concurrent with a renewal of the in-
tenia cordiale between Italy and Austria will appear significant. Iu official
circles it is looked upon as Battled
that immediately upon the meeting of
reichstag a special tariff of reprisals
will be proposed. Among othor incidents in connection with Russian hostility is Denmark's extension of the
fortifications at Copenhagen. Danish
official papers asaort that the new
works are undertaken solely to complete the defences in accordance with
old flans, aud that this does not indicate any intention on the part of Denmark to interfere if Germany engages
iu war with Russia or France. The
facts are tho fortifications are being
constructed vigorously under Russian
prompting, and on a scale hitherto unknown in Denmark. Public interest
during the past two weeks has been
centered more in the personal movements of Eroperot William and Prince
Bismarck than in European politics.
The emperor was received in Babels-
burg yesterday in an unprecedented
manner, and said he had never derived
more enjoyment and benefit from his
stay at Gnstein than this time. He
looks forward to a sojourn there next
year. Shortly after hiB arrival the
emperor inspected tho Potsdam and
Berlin guards. The-17th anniversary
ot the battle of Gravelotto will bo observed on tho 18th inst., culminating
in a review and display at Potsdam.
An imperial decree issued to-night
directs that the ceremony of the consecration of the colors of four new infantry regiments and three new batal-
lions of railway corps shall take place
on that occasion. Prince William
will be in command. On tlio same day
there will be a coWbration of the victory on tho battlefield itself which will
be attended by thousands of people
from all parts of tho empire. Veterans
from every military society in Germany
will go to Gravelotte and St. Private
to participate in tho ceremonies.
Eight hundred members of Saxon
Kreigsverein arrived at Weiseinbor-
ough today and visited the battlefields
placing wreaths upon the graves where
many of their comrades fell, lu the
next fow days a special train will take
other veterans to perform similar rites
on every battlefield in Alsace-Lorraine.
These demonstrations are not intended
as aimless annoyances to the peoplo cf
Franco; they are meant as an expression of renewed hostilities under
menaces from the French, designed to
show that Germany is ready to fight to
retain that which her victories gave
her. Officials in Alsace-Lorraine report more hopefully in regard to the
abatement of tho French malcontent
agitation, although it is still occasionally necessary to resort to expulsion.
