The New York Times says that
the str. Yosemito, lately purchased
in the United Status to be used as a
fishing cruiser, orginally cost $140,-
000. She is. sound, and swift, and
splendidly fitted up, but she is vory
expensive to run. The government
is considered very fortunate in securing her for the vory modest sura
of $50,000, but tbo Times conjectures that it may lie found a somewhat costly possession after all.
Dr. McEaohran, managing director of the Walrond Cattle Handle
Company, says that the Canadian
Northwest ranohes are prospering
splendidly, while tliose in Montana,
Texas, and other parts of the United States are suffering from drought.
This shows how bad was the example and advice of Mr. Ives, the
unpatriotic Tory member for Richmond and Wolfe, who invested his
money, in a. Texas cattle ranche,
nnd issued circulars advising all tbe
other members of the house of commons to do likewise.—Ottawa free
Press.
■ People in England never fully
appreciate the sentiment of the
colonies towards the Queen. Not
only is she obeyed and respected for
her own surpassing inherent qualities of heart and mind, but she is
the recognized tie which unites us
to the mother country. We view
with comparative indifl'erence the
struggle of parties, we care little
for the Iiouse of commons; but to
the Queen we look as embodying
our connection witli tlie empire.
Under her command the armies and
navies of Britain go to battle; in
her name all treaties with foreign
powers are concluded; from her
hands* we seek distinction and reward for meritorious service to our
country. She is the fountain of
justice and mercy, and at the foot of
the throne we confidently repose our
petitions for redress of grievance
or wrong. Make England a republic to-inorrow, and the main binding
tie of the empire would be severed,
nnd every colonial legislature would
consider itself the equal of the congress that might assemble nt Westminster.—Sir A. T. Gait.
For ages the relative values of
gold and silver remained almost unchanged. The great discoveries of
gold in California and Australia did
not seem to affect the relation
much. Mexican dollars and British
shillings and the silver coins of
other nations remained of the same
weight and fineness as before, and
were everywhere received as worth
their face value. But for some
years past tlie production of gold
has diminished and the production
of silver has increased. The demonetization of silver in some countries has' lessened the demand for
that metal, The price of silver,
which some time ago was 60'} pence
sterling per ounce, lias continued to
fall until it has come down to 42
pence. The owners of silver mines
in the United States, appealing to
the protectionist principles of congress, succeeded in getting an act
passed making the silver dollar nf
old weight and fineness, a legal
tender, and requiring the United
States government to coin a cor
tain amount of silver every nionth,
whether the ooin went into oircula
tion or not. The market value of
the silver in one of the dollars is
now scarcely 80 cents. Tlie public
did not caro to accept such coins in
payment when it could be avoided.
Sales and contracts on n large scale
are made on such terms as require
payment in gold, and about 250
million dollars of tliis coinage hns
accumulated in the United States
treasury, against whioh, however,
there are some 80 millions of silver
certificates in circulation. It hns
been proposed at conferences held in
Europe, to substitute a bi-metallio
for u gold standard, but the difficulties in the way seemed insuperable. A. large party in the United
States contend that the depression
in business is due entirely to the
appreciation of gold, and insist that
as a means of putting an end to it
nnd "getting rid of many difficulties
silver should be made the standard,
and all obligations, public and private, should bo made payable in
silver dollars of the present weight
and fineness. This, some argue,
would be repudiation. At present a
great part of the customs and excise
duties are paid in silver. The
amount of coin in the treasury increases so fast that some solution nf
the difficulty must soon be found.
One reason why the price of wheat
has been so low for some time is
that silver coin is still received in
India as if it were fully worth its
nominal price.—Toronto Globe.

It is claimed by tliese and other
property holders tliere that the company, in building a bridge without
u draw, are impeding navigation,
and, consequently, interfering with
trade und commerce, wliich under
British law they can hnvo no authority for doing. Mr. Abbott, it is
sai'd, on being interviewed in regurd
to the matter, replied that the eoinpany could not entertain the idea
of constructing a draw bridge between its work shops und passenger
station. A resolution affecting this
matter, it will lie remembered, was
passed by the local legislature last
session. The resolution asked the
government to withhold its sanction
from any measure which would
have the effect of interfering with
navigation on this stream. Subsequently, however, a bill was passed
through the commons granting to
the railway company tlie privilege
of building the bridge, but whether
on the condition that they should
build i draw or not we are not in a
position to state. Very probably
no such condition was incorporated
into the measure. It is not known
what course will be adopted by
those who are opposed to the work,
and they are many, but there seems
to lie a prospect of trouble unless
the company's plans are changed.
We liclieve Messrs. Leiuiiy & Co.
ure contractors for the bridge work.
The Men or Gotham.
It may be doubted if ever a city
government exceeded that of New-
York in corruption. Thc ghosts of
Tweed and Sweeny, whose gigantic
frauds were exposed in 1871, and
who, fortunately, were made to suf-
ser for their villainy, seem still to
haunt the official sanctums of the
city. It was hoped that tho breaking up of the Tweed ring would release New York from further ring
rule, but this hope was futile.
Tammany Hall held too firm a grip
to be shaken off, nnd its wealth and
profits were too large to he abandoned without a struggle. Although the power of the ring was
weakened, and men became alive to
the danger of permitting this machine govemment to continue and
absorb the life of the city, it has
frequently asserted itself and reached
out for the old sway under which
the spoils of office were its own.
Under the present Democratic administration there are signs of lifo
among the Tammany crowd. Although President Cleveland has an
honorable record, and is personally
and officially opposed to the spoils
systems, he lias not the sympathy of
his party, and the work of reform
hangs fire. New. York corruption-
ists have been throwing off some of
the disguises made necessary by the
growth of a healthy public sentiment, and tliere is danger that their
boldness limy paralyze, by its show
of ■ authority, those who would
otherwise feel themselves strong
enough to resist it. A few days
ago a new piece of villainy was unearthed which caused a profound
sensation. On tho death of H. 0.
Thompson, who was a Democratic
leader, a letter which he held in
possession came to light through the
press. This letter was addressed to
Maurice B. Flynn by R. M. Squire,
who was at the head of thc public
Works department in the city. Squire
Writes: "In consideration of your
securing not less than four county
Democracy aldermen who shall vote
for my confirmation as commissioner
of public works, I hereby agree to
place iny resignation as commissioner, in case of confirmation, in your
hands whenever you may demand
the same, and to make no appointments to said office without your
approval, and to make such removals therein ns you suggest, and to
transact the business of said office
as you may direct." Ono could
hardly imagine a more striking caso
than this of a man selling himself
body und sleeves to the devil. In
his ollicial position Squire controlled
a considerable amount of patronage;
and for the sake of maintaining
that position and the emoluments
belonging to it, lie deliberately sells
himself nnd his office to an unscrupulous political scoundrel! It
is gratifying to know that on tho
appearance of this shameful letter
the grand jury indicted both the
person who wrote it and him to
whom it was addressed.

The withdrawal of Mr. Boecher's
name for collector throws tho office
open to contest. Under the. civil
service rules, democrats are not supposed to mnke that office a political
center, but the democrats will probably ignore the reform president's proclamation and follow their republican
predecessors in keeping a politician
there.*--Whatcom Reveille.
The Philadelphia Times publishes a
statoment about the sale and profits of
Gen. Grant's great hook. There have
been sold (100,00(1 copies, for $2,250,-
000. The cost of making and selling
theae books has been $1,350,000, leaving a balance of $000,000, of which
Mrs. Grant gets $030,000. It is estimated that 100,000 more books will be
sold, which' wilt bring Mrs. Grant's
whole receipts from this source up to
$840,000— a very handsome legacy
from her bankrupt husband.

After the Ouoan.—At the council
last night Councillors Lord and Elliott
denounced in very strong language
tho libelous attacks which have lately
been made upon them and other councillors by tho Guardian in connection
with corporation work. Any one who
has read tho organ's attacks need not
wonder at the vigorous language in
which theso gentlomen repelled the
libels.
Wedding Bells,—Mr. T. J. Trnpp,

On Saturday morning, on the invitation of the warden, Mr. A, H. McBride, Sir John and Lady Macdonald,
accompanied by Mayor Dickinson and
Mr. W. Norman Bole, M. P. P., paid
a visit to the penitentiary. The party
went through the building and drove
over tho grounds, and expressed very
groat pleasure at the perfect order and
neatness every where.

government house grounds, and also
over the main entraneo to tliu

to the building weru also decorated
with Hays. The mottoes on the penitentiary arch were "Hail tothe Chief,"
and "A Thousand Wolcomesl" Tho

"Grip's" Great Supplement. —
With its Midsummer Number, our
facetious contemporary, (kip, has issued a magnificent supplement, iu the
form of a lithograph plate, 18x24
inches, a group of Conservative leaders
Do not delay iu getting relief for tiie
little folks. Mother Craves' Worm Ex-
terminator is a pleasnut and safe dure.
If you lovo your child why do you let it
suffer whon a remedy is so noar at hand 1
It is one of the best tilings of this kind
ever attempted in Canada; and not
only all Conservatives, hut those on
the other side, will doubtless like to
secure it. The price, together with
Midsummer Grip, is only 25 cents, and
it will be forwarded to anyone enclosing that amount to the Company at
Toronto. In this connection we may
state thnt tho success of the enlargement of Grip (now 10 pages) has led
the Company te reduce the price of
Canada's Comic Weekly te $2. New
subscribers sending $1 (together with
5 cents for tube and postage of plate),
will get the paper for the last six
months of this year, to Dec. 31, and
have the Midsummer Number and its
fine Supplement Plate thrown in.
Chinese Stabbing Case.—Mr. C.
McMillan, an old hand upon the C. P.
R., haB recently been in charge of a
China gang near Shuswap Lake, Lately a dispute came up between tho
China bookman and Mr, McMillan,
respecting the time kept, the latter refusing to allow the time claimed to go
to dinner, the camp being distant and
the boss wantingthe men to bring their
dinner. The bookman, taking the
side of the Chinamen, grew angry with
Mr. McMillan. Some of the men
were willing to do as requested, but
others refused. Some time after the
bookman followed Mr, McMillan to
the store of Chase & Co. and wanted
to fight. Mr. McMillan gave the
bookman, as we learn, a shove and
ordered him away. At this the bookman used a knife he had and stabbed
McMillan three times in the rigtit
thigh. Mr, McMillan is in town, and
recovering. Officer Smith was sent
for and arrested the bookman, and he
was brought before Messrs, Edwards
and Jones, J. P.'s, to-day and committed for trial at next criminal court.
Mr, McM. has returned to Shuswap. -
Kamloopa Sentinel.
A Strange Proceeding.—On the
Oth inst. we copied from the News a
statement of the proceedings taken in
the Vancouver police court in connection with the case which caused so
much conflict ion of authority between
the two cities, lt will be remembered
that a man named Hay waa taken into
custody by u constable sent from this
oity with a warrant issued by Capt.
Pittendrigh. He applied for bail, and
Mayor MacLean, of Vancouver, admitted him to bail nnd appointed a
day to hear the case. Capt. Pittendrigh received no intimation of bail
having been accepted or of a time having been appointed for the hearing.
On the day appointed, the report says,
" the court remained sitting until 12
o'clook in order to give Capl. Pittendrigh an opportunity to appear in his
official capacity." But as no one appeared the prisoner was discharged.
Now, this is a rather singular action,
and certainly not very fair or courteous to our magistrate. Capt. Pittendrigh, as we have Baid already, knew
nothing about the proceedings, and
first heard that bail had been taken
and the man discharged from reading
the item in this paper.
Survival ok the Fittest,-—For
some time past the question of purity
in baking powders haa formed quite a
feature of newspaper discussions, and
eminent doctors of philosophy have
given opinions as to the ingredienta
which compose many of the articles
sold under that name. The investiga
tions have narrowed down to the limit
which awards thu Roynl Baking Powder the palm of purity, and several of
the most distinguished scientists have
testified to their conviction that no extraneous'or deleterious matter enters
into ite composition. The Royal Baking Powder Company have achieved a
world-wide reputation for the success
which has marked their preparation
of cream of tartar for baking purpoaea.
It is indisputably shown that they
have eliminated all elements of tartrate of lime, alum or other impurities, and present to the. public a healthful and chemically pure article. Such
widely known chemists as Henry Morten, E. G. Love, H. A. Mott, Wm.
McMurtrie and others have verified its
superiority over other manufactures,
aud testified, through practical experience, to its excellence. It is woll
for families to observe the faot that it
costs more to manufacture the Royal
Bilking Powder than any other, but it
ii, ns shown by chemical analysis, the
one " absolutely pure'1 baking powder
made. *

The True Philosophy of Medication
is not to dose for symptoms but to root
out disease. Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, tho
Great Blood Purifier, has proved itself
equal to the task. It is a most searching without being a violent remedy for
Constipation, Biliousness, and Indigestion. It is as well adapted to thc needs
and physical temperaments of delicate
females as to tlie more robust sex, and is
a preventive of disease as well as a remedy for it. ________

* 'White Bronze Mosuments.-• White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and lias come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for sta-
teary and monuments, tliat companies
havo been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, nnd St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
tliese companies, it lias been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite poriod—it is practically Indestructible, Wliite Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given tlieir sparkling appearance by the
Rami blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surfuce, but does uot adhere to it. A thin film of oxide whicli
forms on this bronze is indistructihle by
the elemunts: it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although thc film is so thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can tuke place.-- Ronton Journal of Commerce. Chus. J. Robson, Mew Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze

'I he annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will lie found
in another column. Tlie facta revealed
in tlio accounts^nd tlio Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner iu which tho Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income tho very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cont. A point attesting the soundness of thc finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
claims- -which in a company of the ngo of
the Confederation Life is something to he
proud of. The assets and liabilities nro
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, aftor making nllowauce for all
possible contingencies ond providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of $282,109
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in thc assets in the last yoar
was 92Q0,!M0, So- much for what can be
dime by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as tho true policy of
the Company, vitss—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
Special lo the Columbian.
New York, Aug. Hi.—The striking
cigar makers returned to work to-day;
the strippers, of whom thoro aro nearly 500, alao returned to their shops today; the butchers will go back to-morrow, and the rollers on Wednesday.
London, Aug. 10.—The succesB.ir of
the Marquis Tsing, Chinese ambassador, will be M. Liomfier, who will also
be accredited to the Vatican.
Dublin, Aug. 10.—At Dunyantion
to-day bands of nationalists paraded
the Protestant quarter of tho town,
shouting for homo rule and cursing the
queen. A riot broke out, and sovoral
pet-BOns wero injured. The police had
to force their way between Protestants and Catholics, thus preventing
desperate fighting. One nationalist
was arrested with a knifo in liis hand.
Havana, Aug. 10.— Sixty-eight
cigar factories, working i'artide tobacco, have been cloned, and 0,000
workmen hnve struck for higher wages.
The strike threatens to extend to
Vuelto Abajo. The factories havo
united to resist the demands of the
workingmen.
Chicago, Aug. 10.—All eastern
wires on the Cincinnati and Pittsburg
route are demoralized by storms. The
Pittsburg telegraph, otlice has been
burned out by lightning. Communication with the east is entirely lost.
A very heavy storm is now raging in
Cincinnati.
Denver, Aug. 16.—An Aspen, Cal.,
special to the News says: A double
assassination was committed near this
place yesterday evening, of the most
cold-blooded character. From what
can be learned it appears that Dan
Fen-ton had jumped the ranch of Harry
Burrows 13 miles from here, and employed Michael Ryan to work for him.
Yesterday morning they began cutting
hay. Burrows warned the men not to
cu tthe hay, as he would not permit
them to finish the work. Fenton
laughed at Burrows, who turned aud
went away. In about half an hour
Fenton and Ryan, who had continued
work, were shot in tho back, the
former through tho spino and abdomen. Thc shooting was done from
ambush, with Winchester rifles. Tho
men lived six hours, and before dying
made an ante-mortem statement claiming that Burrows and Doc White did
the killing- White was arrested. At
last accounts Burrows was at large,
with vigilantes in pursuit who will
probably lynch him if they succeed in
effecting his capture.
Belfast, Aug. 10 —Occasional shots
were tired throughout the day and
evening. The men from Queen's
Island while marching home sang " No
Home Rulo for Ireland," a parody on
" Ood Save Ireland." Thia maddened
the Catholics. The military iu charging tho mob Inat evening bayonetted
Magistrate Burke, wfir- was assisting
the wounded rioters. Burke was in
plain clothes, and consequently was
taken to the hospital.
London, Aug. 10.—The report of
the marriage uf Mme. Nilssmi is denied.
A fire in the theatre at Viena, Russia, caused a panic in which many persons were injured.
London. Aug. 10.-—Gen. Booth, of
the Salvation Army, leaves for America in Octobor.
London, Aus. 10.—The cabinet
hns decided to recall the Afghan
frontier commissiun at the earliest dato
possible, whether tlie deliberation be
tiniahed or not. The Standard, referring to thia decision, says it "will cause
uhqual|6ed satisfaction in hoth England and India, The truth is we are
weary of attempts to arrive at a clear
understanding uf thu boundary by ne*
gutiating with Russia.
San Frasuisuo, Alter. 10.—The
project to run a fast transcontinental
nassen-jjer train to cover the distance
iiutween Sau Franciaco and Chicago in
four days has been abandoned owing
to the refusal of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road to enter into
this arrangement. The latter road is
part of the Towa pool, and could not
got the consent of its associated roads
to euter this new combination.

|Jii}iinl on the Fisheries.
Baltimore, Aug. fl,- In his speech
last night, Secretary Bayard, after referring to the Cutting case, adverted to
the position taken by the govemment
ou tho fisheries question. He said
that as a matter of fact tlie State Department occupied more advanced
ground in this matter than that taken
by Webster, Abbott, Lawrence, and
Edward Everell, all of Massachusetts,
over thirty years ago, in bringing about
the Treaty of 1854. Under that treaty
Canadians aud New Englanders enjoyed reciprocity in fishing. But New
Englanders, becoming tired of Canadian competition, shut tho Canadians
out of their markets, and then thought
it very odd that Canadians would not
permit thom to fish within the three-
mile limit. The State department is
now endeavoring to obtain the privileges asked for by tho Now Englanders, notwithstanding the latter will
make uo concessions, and Secretary
Bayard thinks a fair construction of
tiie treaty of 1848 will give them tho
right to purchase bait, which is one of
the chief points in the controversy.
Notwithstanding the obstacles put in
way by Congress, the Department is
working vigorously to secure this concession, and with a fair prospect of
success, although the Briti.-ih Foreign
Office is greatly hampered by tho right
of Canada to impose such restrictions
upon American fishermen as aho may
see fit. In both fisheries and Mexican
affairs tlie State Department lias acted
with great promptness and vigor.

The Keely Motor Again.
Philadelphia Sunday Times.
John Worrell Keely, tho motor man,
gave an exhibition yesterday aftornoon
in his workshop, at 1422 North Twentieth street, of Ids big engine, whicli
lias just been completed after a year
of experiments, inventor Keely has
been giving mysterious entertainments
to capitalists, scientists and others for
tlio past dozen or fifteen yoars, but
none of the former exhibitions wero so
mysterious or so wondorful as the
scientific reception of yesterday. Mr. |
Keoly used aU tlio terms known to
science and ft littlo scientific vocabulary of his own in explaining to his
audience of thirty, how tlio thing was
dono. Tlie audienco, liko former audiences, nodded their heads in approval aud looked wise and as usual
knew just as much about Keely's secret
whon tho show was ovor as they did
boforo it began. Mr. Keely told those
presont that it was the first trial of his
now and biggest engine, and that ho
was just experimenting and didn't
know whether tho engine would run or
not. As ho wiped the trickling per-
spinition from liis facu ho added that
his brain was all confused, but ho
guessed everything would go all right,
as ho liad a chord of a mass and had
secured introductory impulse-
Tlie scientists and capitalists lookod
at each other helplessly and then
smiled at Mr. Keely, and a numbor
said in chorus: "Oh, yos, certainly."
Inventor Keely has heretofore given
his exhibitions with small machines,
and the funny-looking copper globe
forty-eight inches in diameter rilled
with "resonators," which he used yesterday, is about three times larger than
any machine ho has ever used. He
said that lie could produce 250 horse
power with what looked more like a
washing machine than anything else.
A hum of wonderment ran through
the little workshop and then Mr.
Keely put rosin on his fiddle bow,
tuned thc forks on the drum of his
"liberator," connected a copper tube
six feet long and one-eighth of an
inch in diameter with a seven-pint
cylinder and then connected a copper
tube a thirty-second of nn inch in
diameter and ten feet in length with
the engine from tho seven-pint cylinder. The sound liberated from tho
drum of the "liberator," passed
through the first tube into the cylinder
and then into thc smaller tube and
into the copper globe of tlio new machine. The bottled chords of the mass
whicli Mr. Keely had chosen for his
power yesterday would run the machine, he said. Something did run it.
Tho big copper globe forty-eight inches
in diameter, mado soven revolutions
every second, and an independent belt
wheel at one end of tlio copper globe,
which Mr. Keely said rah from the
sympathy of sound, made three hundred revolutions a minute, and it velocity frightened everybody in the room,
including Keely, who danced around
the shop and told everybody to keep
out of the way.
Tlie belt-wheel and the copper globe
wont around so fast that they made a
noise like the spinning of a huge top.*
Tho noise sounded, too, like the rushing, howling of a furious wind as the
copper globe eut tho atmosphere and
turned it into dripping water on the
floor beneath. The hot little workshop was chilled in two minutes, and
then as Keely, greatly excited, turned
tho cock of the vibrating tube and
made  the copper globe calm down to
almoBt a standstill the capitalists aud | Westminster'tiiat tiiey have bponed a
scientists clapped their hands and took
off their hats.
"Ain't that fine, gentlemen V asked
Keoly, smiling.
"Greatest on earth," answered Albert R. Eddy, the president of the
Keely Motor Company.
"Wonderful,"   camo   from a dozen ;
mouths, and thon Mr. Keely started {
the copper globe off again with all its
fury.    It  shook   the little workshop
from  cellar   to ceiling and rattled the
window panes.
■* I can make the screw of a stoamer
make 0,000 revolutions a minute with
this machine," shouted Keely through
the howling of the globe and the bait-
wheel.
" Thau we'll be able to gu to Europe
in one or two days before lung," remarked a man in the audience.
Mr, Keely stopped tho engine again
aud then made the globo revolvo in
either direction, just as lie pleased,
The buttled sound iu thu " liberator"
was just as strong when he --nit as
when he began, and he said tho machine would run on all day without I
changing the " liberator" again with a
sound from drawing the fiddle-bow
over the tuning fork.
Several tests wero mado with the 1
lever, which hive boon described fre*
quenity, When tho exhibition was
concluded L. H. Taylor, jr., the broker, moved that a vote of thanks be
tendered Mr. Keely. Everybody '
shouted " aye," and ringing applause
followed. Mr. Keoly will go away tomorrow for ton days' rest; then he
will return and study out tome vibra
tory sounds, so thnt he will have the
machine more thoroughly under his
control. He doesn't know how l»ng
it will tako hiin or what the next smp | PIOKFQING  $L  CO

Water Sfouts.—A wnter spout is a
ttmiill whirlwind ocourritifc on tlio sur
face of ft sea or lake. In tliu center
this whirlwind u slender cnlunni
water or dense vnpm- uppears, whicli is
the water spout proper. This column
when fully funned reaches from thu
sky to the surface of tlio water, whirling rapidly on its axis, mid borne forward by the wind tlmt may happen to
bo then blowing. Tliu water at the
baso of tho whirling vurtox is thrown
into violent commotion, and literally
"boils like a pot," Thero is a common
belief that the water of the sua is
sucked up in a solid mass by water
spouts, but iu fact the spray from the
broken waves alono is thus drawn up.
What are called "water spouts on
land" are only heavy falls of rain accompanied by whirling winds.
