Aiitificial Hi'o.niies. — A new
sponge iiiilustry is being dtivelopml
on the const of Dnluratin as an outcome of experiments by Prof. Oieur
Schmidt, of Styriu. Prof. Schmidt
planted in favorable spots very small
cutting of live sponge, and in threo
years' Was rewarded with a fine drap
of large spopges. The expense was
small, the total cost of 4000 sponges
being not more than "J2."i francs,
DlPHTOKSlA' IS t lltKEVS.— Di*.
l'nulinis mentions an epidemic of
diphtheria, in 1881, whicli followed
the arrival of a flock of turkeys in
Skiatos, one of the Grecian isles,
where no case of the disease hnd
previously been known for thirty,
years. Some of the turkeys were'
aick, and it is believed that the
diphtheritic germs were conveyed
from them through the air to the
first human victim.'    ' '
Coloring Metals.—By means of
a bath consisting of 300 grains of
acetate of lead, 600 grains of hyposulphite of soda and one quart of
water, it is said that eleven different
colors may be imparted to well-
cleaned copper, and eight to nickel-
plated objects.. After the salts are
dissolved, the solution is heated to
boiling, and the metal is afterward
immersed therein. At first a gray
color is obtained, and this, on the
immersions being continued, passes
successfully to violet, maroon, red,
etc., andfinalllytoblue.    >:
Another Undiscovered Germ.—
The reports whieh came, not many
months ago, from Mexico and Brazil, stating that the yellow fever
germ had been discovered and cultivated, and that inoculations with it
prevented the disease, have been investigated for the United States
government by.JDr. Geo. M, Sternberg, a physician" and biologist of
groat experience. He has become
convinced that the yellow fever
microbe has not yet been found, and
that the inoculations made have
really increased the effects of the
disease instead ot lessening them.
His researches have been made under somewhat unfavorable conditions, however, and further experiments will be made.
Base-Ball Science.—Lovers of
hose-ball may find it convenient to
keep in mind this explanation of the
pitcher's curve from Mr. R. A. Proctor: If the ball ia advancing without spin, or is spinning on an axil
lying along its' count, the cushion
of compressed air named forward
by it is conical—or rather conoidal
—and therefore resiUs the progress
of the ball equally on all sides, affecting only the velocity. But in
the case of the curve, where the ball
iB spinning on an axis square to its
oourse, the air in front of the advancing side of the spinning surface
cannot escape so readily as if there
were no spin, and escapes more
readily on the other side. Hence
rthe resisting cushion of air is thrown
toward that aide of the ball where
the spin is forward, and removed
from the other side, and the ball is
deflected from the region of greatest
resistance.
Wiiebk Will Discovery OiaseI-
Whether all science has limits, so
that at the present rate of progress
all discoverable thing* nay have become known, a few generations
hence, is a question that must have
been suggested to many. Concerning the future of systematic chemistry, Dr. Edward Schunk bu concluded that in the course of time
this prolific Seld of today will he
worked out All possible compounds—or nearly all—will have
been prepared, all the moat important chemical facts will bave been,
discovered, and pure chemistry will
be practically exhausted, and have
arrived at the same condition as systematic botany and mineralogy,
with only rarely a new plant or
mineral to be determined, now are.
Chemical science will not cease
there, however, for, as the botanist
is still fully employed in investigations in plant physiology, so will
the chemist find opportunities—probably far beyond our present conception—for research in suoh investigations as those of the processes
by whioh organio compounds are
produced in the growth and decay
of plants and animals.
A very pretty little girl, only
three yean old, attracted the attention of passengers in a Naw York
train for this city the other day,
and Anally one gentleman succeeded
in getting her upon hie knees. "Where
are you going, sissy!" he inquired.
"I'm doin' to Hartford," said the
child, adding eagerly; "I've dat on a
new pair ot flannel draweti! Did
you ever have a pair of flannel drawers I" Further inquiries were smothered in tbe laughter of everybody
within hearing.—Harford Timet.

Bostus, May 30.—About 4000 people
witnessed the 3-mile race this afternoon
between Teemer and daudaur. At the
Point of Pines thero was a considerable
swell on at tho ii'vertised time of start-
i'lj, but at ii o'clock the water had calmed nml nt II minutes post 5 o'clock n strrrt
was made. Both took tho water tit tlio
same time, Teenier rowiug 38 strokes per
minute, tinuilaur 3*2. Teemer gained one
length in all eighth of. a mile and g -mlii-
ally increased it to the fint turn whicli
he made at 5.10 p.m., half a minute
ahead of Oandanr. The return to tho
starting point was made in 3 J minutes,
both taming together. The third stake
was turned by Teemer at». 18, Gaudaur
5.18J, Teenier finished at 6122, Gaudanr
2J lengths behind. The Bine was 16
minutes. To the uninitiated the event
was somewhat interesting, but to those
more experienced It savored of what is
'nquently termed a "put up job." K»
—"L   -— '       '      ithi
real work was done by either man,
Teemer taking hla ease throughout.

THE OOOD OLD WAY.
Montreal, May 30.—Some time
ago two young medical students at
Bishop's College had a qualtel about a
lady. Disdaining the vulgar process
of fists as a mode of adjustment, Ibey
delermined to seek mutual "satisfaction" by pistols. Friends emptied the
pistols and swords were next decided
upon. Friends then got the principals
bound over to keep the peace. A
touch ol sentiment is now . interposed
in the announcement that*the youug
gentleman who so promptly resented
what seemed an aggression upon ths
lady is about to prove his fidelity by
leading her to the alter. The marriage
takes place within a month.
RucoJinia strained.
Berun, May 30.—The North German Ocasite, in an inspired article,
says that the recent passport regulation iu relation to French people entering Alsace-Lorraine are not repris-
sls for certain frontier incidents, but
are the outcome of a policy for consolidation of all interests looking to the
reaequisition of the Keicbland. This
object is presented by the serious incitements and by the preparations
which the French are making for a war
of revenge, and also by the espionage
of agitators whioh serve tp heighten
Frenchmen's hostility towards Germany. "France," continues the Oa-
sttte, "in order to strengthen herself
fostered rather then sought to lessen
the national hatred the increase of
which prevents the Germans from entering France without danger to their
lives, I The fsctof Germany's moderation and caution may hot, it is true,
produce good results. It nevertheless
does not create warlike feelings. It is,
however, desirable to restrict the intercourse botween tho two nations.
Therefore we will not regret if France
excludes Germans from her borders,
as interstate friction will thus, as far
as possible, be avoided. In all events
Germany's action In regard to the
Reichlknd Will serve the cause of
peace."

last Words.
With this issue the writer severs
all connection with The Columbian.
For nearly seven yeors we have been
associated with the staff of this paper, and for over five years have had
charge of the editorial and business
management. Soven years ago this
journal (then the Dominion Pacific
Herald) was published only twice a
week as a 2-1-coluiiiu paper. No
regular press telegrams were then
received by it or any other paper in
the province. On the 1st of January, 1882, it was enlarged to 28
columns, and its name was changed
to the Bbitisu Columbian*. 4*n
the 16th of May, in the following
year, it was again enlarged to 32
columns. On the 31st July, 1886,
the first number of the Daily Co-
- lumbian made its appearance, It
cannot be said, therefore, that The
Columbian has not mado steady and
substantial advancement during tbe
period of the writer's connection
with it, and there is a great deal of
satisfaction in the reflection that the
concern is now handed over to tbe
new management in a healthy and
prosperous condition, commanding
very extensive influence and large
patronage throughout the province.
The history of a live newspaper represents to a great extent the history of the community in which it
is published, and the progress and
development which have been so
conspicuous in The Columbian during the past seven years are scarcely
less remarkable than the progress
and development of this oity and
province. Ih 1881 there were only
two daily papers published in British Columbia: now there are six.
In 1881 the only route by which
traffic from eastern Canada could
reach this province was via San
Francisco: now we have the choice
of five different transcontinental
railways, one of which lies wholly
within Canadian territory and has
one of its western termini in this
city. In 1881 the white population
of Westminster was not over 2000:
now it is probably more than
double that figure and is
increasing very rapidly. In 1881
we had a mail service twice
a week via Victoria and twice a
week to the river settlements and
the interior: now we have a daily
mail both ways. In 1881 we had
neither gas nor telephone service,
and our only telegraph service was
over the precarious wires of the
Western Union*, to-day our streets
and public buildings are lighted with
gas, we hsve a very extensive telephone system reaching to both Vancouver and Fort Moody, and this is
the central oflice and provincial
headquarters of the 0. P. R. and
Postal-Union telegraph companies.
Not only has, our population doubled
within these seven years, but our
business establishments bave more
than doubled, and we have grown
from n; city of one-story wooden
houses to one with as tine brick
blocks as can be found anywhere in
the country. We have assumed, a
real metropolitan character and a
commercial importance which seems
destined to make us first among the
cities of Britisli Columbia. Besides
being tbe fresh water terminus of the O.P.R., we are upon the
eve of becoming the western terminus ofthe'railway line which is to
unite the Canadian and American
railway systems on the Pacific coast
and bring us into immediate con
neetion with Puget Sound, Oregen,
California, and the whole western
states, It is not too muoh to presume that before the close of another
year, too, the Fraser River improvements will have been so far advanced
as to permit sea-going vessels to
come up as far as Westminster for
lumber and other products of the
district.' These und many other
projects aftbeting tho interests of this
city and province have received the
cordial support of The Columbian,
and it is with pleasure that wo perceive how surely thoy are going forward to completion. In the course
of our journalistic career in this city
we have endeavored always to make
TiieUolumbian's influence felt on
the side of right and moral reform,
and it Has sometimes seemed to us
proper to advocate schemes and
principles which in certain quarters
have meet with disapproval. But
we areablato resign theeditorialclmir
with the consciousness that if nny
mistakes bave been made, tbey were
errors of judgment, and not the result
of an intention to wrongany one whose
notions became the subject of criticism—and wo have. to acknowledge
with gratitude the words of Ii6.iity
commendation whieh have frequently come to us, and sometimes from
most unexpected sources'. With
these last words we take leave of
the roaden of Tub Columbian, mud
hope that it and they may enjoy increased anti uninterrupted sacr-ww.

begin.
-' A great clapping announced LaTonta
,0s Bbi* entered quickly from a side door,
and stood facing tho mirror.   Tomysur-
Srise she Writ a. tall, thin, ungraceful,
adly-formed, and slattern-looking gypsy
woman, by no means young.
She was attired in a long yellow calico
gown hanging loosely about her, much
the worse for wear and not overclenn.
She wore black kid slippers and white
cotton stockings. Her skin waa dark like
all aotnen of her race, and her eyes largo
arid luminous. Her mass of jet-black
hair wai caught in a twist behind, ths
Whole decorated with blossoms of the
tuberose.
I looked at Mateo in surprise, but his
expression was too earnest and his admiration too sincere.' He evidently did
not agree with me in my estimation -of
La Tone. He laid bis hand upon my
knee and said, "Walt!" ;
At tbls instant a stout gypsey ia his
shirt sleeves, who had been beating time
with bis cane, and who appeared to be
master ol ceremonies, cleared the lloor,
pressing everybody back against the
wall.
La Tonta stood surveying herself in the
mirror which hung over the mantel. She
nodded to Mateo, and began rolling up
her soiled calico sleeves quite to her
shoulders, revealing a thin, though well
proportioned and not altogether unattractive pair of arms. She then stripped
the cheap tinsel bracelets Irom her
wrists, and hid them in her bosom.
As the music increased iu volume she
shut her eyes and stretched out her long
nrms ns a pantbor sometimes does; then
lilted them above tier head, and instantly they fell into tbe'fHylhm' ol the
music- Her -leet how began to move,
und a peculiar swaying motion started as
if from her heels, ran up through her
limbs, back, and neck, and undulated
through her long arms, and lost itsell In
her linger-tipe; ■-..'•-
Thia was repeated again and again,
each movement increasing in intensity *,
her eyes (lashing with a light rare even
in n i-panialr gypsy. She stamped her
feet swayed her body backward and forward, almost touched the Noor.witli her
hair, and then suddenly rushed forward,
appealing to you with Iter outstretched
arms.
Tbe music seemed to possess her like a
spell. Sbe became grace itself, her movements sylphlike—and, if yon will believe
II, positively beautiful. As the music
quickened,' her gestures became mors
violent; as it died away, you could hardly believe she moved—and she did not,
except the sli.ht shuffling of her leet
which kept up the spell within her.
Tbe effect on the audience was startling. Men rose to their feet bending
forward and watching her every motion.
The' women clapped their hands, encouraging her with cries of "Oils I ollel
Bravo, ba Tonta I" Suddenly the inuii c
chased, and La Tonta stood perfectly still.
Her eyes opened, her arn_s fell limp, beside her, her back straightened, and sht
woke as if from a trance: Giving a
quick glance around, she. gathered her
skirts in her hand, and limped rather
than walked through the hall and. out
into the side room, if anything _uior.
awkward than when shs entered.

Your Children
Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to the throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral*. promptly administered, affords speedy relief and cure.
Aa a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
aflkted, we used, during the past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation the most efficacious of all the medicines which have
corns to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst. Preceptress, Home for Little
Winterers, Doneatter, Md.
Hy Ohildren have been peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
nn'd any effectivo remedy until I commenced administering Ayor's Chorry
Peotoral. This preparation relieves the
difficulty ot breathing and Invariably
onres the complaint—David O. Storks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I haire used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
In my family for, maty years, and
have found it especially valuablo ln
Whooping Cough. Thb medicine allays
all Ittltation, prevents inflammation from
extending to the lungs, aad quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.

I find no medlolne-so-effeotlTt, for

This commodious local traffic river
steamer, Cnpt. Young, arrived from
the North Arm1 to-day at noon. She
brought about ten passongers, two tons
of hay, three tons of oats und 78 sacks
of potatoes, and also a quantity of furniture from Vancouver. The Richmond was built very lately by Capt.
Stewart, and runs betweon tho North
Arm, Vancouver and Westminster.
She is kept continually busy with a
paying business, and affords much appreciated facilities for farmers and
others on her route.

At the police court thia morning
Charlie, the Indian charged with supplying liquor to a kloochman named
Mary, was dismissed for want of evidence. Moody, whoso name is registered on the police records as many
tiroes as there are weeka in tho'year,
was fined $5 and costs for being drunk
and incapable. The police are on the
track of the parties who sold the liquor
to Moody and if they are apprehended it will go badly with them. Tho
authorities are determined' that the
practice of selling liquor to Indians
must be put down, which guilty parties
in future will find to their cost.

All lovers of Scottish songs and
musio will shortly havo an opportunity
of enjoying a night with the world renowned Bairnsfather family. The
Bairnsfather's liave earned a reputation evon superior to the Kennedy's,
who were considered the finest Scottish
vocalists of the century. Tho leading
papers of Canada unite in giving the
palm to the Bairnsfather's nnd pronounce their concert, the* best ever
given in Canada. With these flattering recommendations it is beyond
doubt the concert will be all that is
expected of it, and that the entertainment will be well patronized goes without saying. Tho Bairnsfather's expect
to appear  in  Westminster  on  Juno

On and after to-morrow, Jano 1st,
all freight from and to the east aud
from and to the intorlor, via C. P.R.,
will be received and shipped from Vancouver, the officials of the company
being of the opinion that the freight
can be handled from Vancouver by the
staff thero without extra cost, thus saving the wagea of ths stall employed in
the freight department in this city.
It is not known yet whether llio surplus members of uie staff ut present
employed in this city will be removed
to Vancouver or discharged. Mr.
Carleton, the eneraetic freight agent
of tho C.P.N.C'o., will remove with hrs

The examination uf candidates fur
.entrance into tho high school iu this
city terminated this afternoon. Iu all
there wero IS applicants for admission;
of which four were from Port Moody,
eight from Mill Roger's division, Westminster public school, and six from
Mr. Coatham's department (boys) of
the same institution. The papers will
bo forwarded to-morrow to Mr. Pope,
superintendent of education, for examination,' and the result! will bo known
at the end of the present school term.
The mid-summer examinaliuu of the
high school commenced yesterday
morning and is still going on. It will
probably occupy tho remainder of tho
week.
The storm oxpocted lust night or today scorns tu liave given us tho slip as
indications now point towards fino
weather again. Capt. Peele says tho
storm passed uver this valley but will
be severely felt east of the mountains.
The slight shower of this morning wus
only sufficient to lay the dust and did
not penetrate the ground to any, extent. Tho weather in the interior hns
been much warmer than on the coast,
some localities reporting as high as 92°
in Ihe shade. Mr. James Wilson,
supt. of C. P. R. telegraphs, wires
from Clinton to Oapt Peele as follows:
"The thermometer at Olinton'Titu registered frum 80° tu 80° in the shade
forthe past five dnys. The Fhtsor
rivor rose four foot in twelve hours,
ending Sunday morning, at Lillooet
Ferry." It is just possible we will
have a few local showers within the
next 24 hours.
People whn are often compelled to
visit Sapperton complain that a vicious
dog, in the nighborhood of the pene-
tentiary gate, proves a source of great
annoyance and even danger to them.
The dog will run after pedestrians and
it is with much difficulty, on some
occasions, theanimal has been prevented
from biting. Following vehicles seems
to be it* favorito source of amusement,
and ladiea driving in that vicinity complain that they have had several narrow escapes from a runaway from the
horse becoming unruly at the persistent worrying and snarling of the dog
round the. horse's heels, The other
day a lady hed her dress badly torn by
the brute, and might have suffered
seriouB injuries had she not reoeived
assistance. The owner of the dog
shonld boar in mind that such animals
can be destroyed as a publio nuisance,
and that thb owners are responsible for
any damages caused by such animals.

Stagnation would appear to be the
lust thing thought about by the progressive nnd prosperous farming community of the North Arm. Indeed it
is doubtful if the word could be fuund
in their dictionaries. What with entertainments, bear hunting, and the
ereotiun of now and elegant dwellings,
to say nothing of the pleasurable excitement afforded the fair sex by conjecturing who may be asked to occupy
some of these prospective Edens, a
healthy ebb and flow U maintained in
the social currents of the North Arm.
Tho ladios pf the W.C.T.U., givo an
entertainment on Tuesday next, June
5th, which, frum past experience, ox-
cite, pleasurable anticipation!.
Frank Evans killed a very large
bear with his rifle-last Saturday, and
some une else wounded another a few
days after, but' failed to secure it.
They uro said to be very numerous
down there-this season.
Mr. Thos. Errington has gut well
under way a particularly fino new residence, and Mr. J. \V. Sexiuith and
Capt. Stewart are following suit. It
is openly insinuated that Capt. Stowart intends to capture a "bird" for his
attractive cage, and tho gallant tap-
tain doea not deny it.
We are informod that tho crops in
the North Arm section, particularly
the hay and grain,promise excellently,
and that previous years will he completely surpassed both in quantity and

A Broken Dream.
The merry jingle of bells on the ice
wagon, as it makes its journeys over
tho city delivering congealed water lo
our parboiled citizens, sometimes carries us back to days gone by and scenes
far distant. While sitting in uur
sanctum this morning wrestling witii a
report Ofthe terrific heat in tho interior, tho perspiration ooring from every
pore and our whole person much resembling a man who has just been accidentally thrown into tha river, we
heard a strangely familiar sound, and
presently our mind wandered bnck lo
the days whon our moustache could not
boast of anything like tlio elegant proportions it has since attained. The
jinglo of the bolls wss iii our ears,
shiver moandcred down our spinal
column aud quite involuntary we
turned up our coat collar and gave our
toes n twist tn find if llrey were cold.
The night was fine and minis good, tho
horse fast,-our best girl was with us,
and we wan out for au old-fashioned
sleigh-ride—one of the kind that never
fodea from fond memory.. How bright
the stars were, how crisp tho snow,
huw pretty was the face and rosy the
cheeks uf Ihe charming creature bt-sides
us, and hor eyes how they sparkled in
tho starlight with pleasure and oxcile

a i'lido opening of the door carried us
3000 miles away in less than a second,
and a heavy voice snarled out, ''Du
you want any ice to-dny!" The paste
pot struck within au inch of his jugular
vein nnd the scissor, penetrated thai
door in u direct line with the mis-
oroant'. heart. Before the ink bottle

Professor Menzies, the' magnetic
healer, of Victoria, and well known in
this city, hal got himself into trouble
at the capital city. It appears ho got
possession of two Chinese girls, who
had been rescued from a life of ehame
and had afterwards been placed in the
"home," and all attempts at finding
them proved fruitless. On the 7th of
this month, along with a Chinaman,
ho went to the residence of tho Rev.
Mr. Starr and asked him to marry
Ah Chee, the Chinaman, to Ah Lin,
one of tho girls. Mr. Starr refused to
perform the ceremuny, and after attempting the same scheme with nnothor minister, Menzies gavo the idea
up and handed the girl over to Ah
Cheo, saying the marriago certificate
was enough and that they wero married. Ah Ohoo paid $150 for the girl.
Ah Clioe not long after discovered the
imposition, and in the hope of having
the marriage porfnrlned and a refund
of the $160 made, Ah Chee produced
the receipts and the marriage license,
one of the former of which reads:
"Victoria, April Sth, 1888. Received
of Ah Poy the sum of fifty dollars as
part payment of expense of Ah Lin.
(signed) Walter Menzies." The other:
"Viotoria, May 7th, 1888. Received of
Ah Chee in full uf all charges for expenses of Ah Lin to date, she being
married to tho said Ah Chee, (signed)
W. R. Menzies." Menzies managed
to get the other girl across the boundary and all trace of her has been lost
What action the city intends taking in
the matter has not transpired.
