SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
A constant and disagreeable sweet
taste has been reported in one case
as a result of the substitution of
saccharin for sugar.
Europe now has 23 crematories,
ten of them added within the past
year, while no less than 600 bodies
have be burned in Oernuny and
800 in Italy. The United States
has seven crematories, with six building. Thus it seems that prejudice
against cremation is fast abating.
Vienna is to have an electrical
laboratory at which the public, for
certain fixed fees, may have tested
the power and efficiency of dynamos, the candle-power and economical working of arc and incandescent
lamps, the working of primary and
secondary batteries, the calibration
of measuring instruments, etc.
One of the three finest collections
of butter-dies in the world—the two
othen belonging to the British museum and a Paris institution—has
been made by Mr. fierthold Neu-
moegen, of the Kew York stock exchange. It contains 100,000 specimens, and has cost twenty yeara in
time and 135,000 in money. Livingstone, Stanley, Schwatka and
other explorers have contributed to
it.
Snow-Oai-uht Birds.—A curious
danger to birds has been observed
by a Belgian game-keeper. Warming the feet in the nearest body of
open water during very cold wea
ther, the tail-feathers become wet,
and, dragging over the snow, soon
form balls so large as to seriously
impede progress. Partridges are
thus made ready victims to stronger
birds. It is probable, however, that
this singular loading of birds is not
of frequent occurrence.
Best Views of Mabs.-
Mars and the sun occupy op[
places in the heavens our near planetary neighbor is seen at its best,
This occurs once in 780 days, but,
on account of the ellipticity of the
orbits of the earth and Man, the
two planets come nearest together
only once in fifteen yean. Man was
in opposition in April of this year;
it will make its olosest approach in
1892, when it will be only 35,000,-
000 miles away. The memorable
discovery of the two tiny moons was
made during the opposition of 1877.
The World's Quisike. — The
yearly production of quinine it estimated to be about 1,500,000 ounces.
This is chiefly furnished by eighteen
factories—one in Holland, two in
England, two in Italy, three in
France, four in the United States,
and six in Germany. Quinine is also supplied by the government plantations in India; and experiments
in producing it in the vicinity of
Fiflis, in the Caucasus, have been
so successful that the Russian government is arranging for the cultivation of cinchona on an immense
scale,
Cooking and Diqestibii.it*.. —
Experiments by Or. N. Butiagin, a
St. Petersburg medical student,
show that the saliva is less active
in digesting starch foods in invalids
and weak persons than in the
healthy, and that compensation for
this may be had in the increased digestibility given the starchy sub'
stances by prolonged cooking. The
saliva of a weak and nervous woman, with 88 per cent of the normal activity, digested rice and peas
which had been cooked three houn
with the same readiness that healthy
saliva digested the some foods alter
cooking one hour, It wss further
found that the difference between
the effects of healthy and unhealthy
saliva becomes greatly lessened
when the starch ii cooked a long
time,
Tm Elements.— The naturalist
often finds himself at a lou to draw
the dividing line between closely-
allied species; and in the chemical
world are now known certain substances presenting slight variations
that make it difficult to determino
where the element ceases and the
compound begins. Further than
this, it seems that a vast array of
intermediate bodies — ■- meta-ele-
ments "—must be recognised. From
these facts Mr. Wm. Orookes, F. R.
8., draws support for his theory of
the origin of all matter in one form
of atoms, conjecturing that the
chemical elements were formed from
knots and voids gradually created
in a primitive formless fluid, and
given different degrees of energy represented by their atomic weights.
He supposes that heat vibrations
were, in somo unknown manner,
transformed into the essential motions of chemical atoms.

gcttpSSho of thosKfearftll onAavofi'-.
derful editorials which have almost
become quito a fcaturo in his journal.

' our  esteemed  salt water cotempo-
"rkrygets on to h'subjcot affecting
the;interests of  this city, and oil
..sucV occasions  he invariably dis-
,'plays a wonderful faculty for  disguising his real purpose.   In to-day's
issue he   writes  n  whole  column
rwhiob is summed up in this comprehensive sentence: *'It is  also vory
probable that for some time to come
it will uot bo' possible to  obtain  a
sum en bloc sufficiently large to com
plete the improvements in, the time
that they would be effected provided . the money required was nvail-
-able."   We  are  sure no one will
Ventura  to  dispute a self evident
fact so lucidly and logically expressed, or underestimate the vigor with
■which the robust mental faculties'of
. our cotemporary jerked these great,
burning principles from the wonderful intei1 jotual storehouse where for
weeks past they have been expand-
■ ing into perfect and symmetrical proportions !
A few days ago we stated that
arrangements had beon practically
completed by which the city would
get possession of. the public park at
the east end. Yesterday Mayor
Dickinson received a telegram from
Hon. Jno. Bobson stating that an
order-in-council had been passed
conveying this piece of land to tbe
city of Westminster for the purpose
of a park and pleasure grounds.
The quantity of land embraced in
this conveyance is about 87 uores,
which is amply sufficient for present
needs at least, and will give room
enough for all the associations organized for the promotion of outdoor sports' and passtimes. The
.park is situated where it can bo
easily reached, as nearly all our
principal streets lead directly to it.
Then wilh be la wide entrance from
Columbia street, east of Mrs. Homer's residence, which will eventually become a fine avenue with stately
trees on each side. The view is
very pretty from almost every part
of tho park. Possession of (his lino
tract of land having been secured,
we very much hope our citizens will
lose no time in taking such stops as
maybe deemed necessary to put it
in proper shape. Such a piece of
hnd cannot be transformed from its
.Wii? state into attractive pleasure
grounds  in  a day or a year.   The
■ trees may soon be out down, and the
surface, levelled, but tho growth of
ornamental trees and the formation
of soil are the work of time; and
the longer o commencement is delayed" tho 'longer will it be before
the final result is reached. Beforo
entering upon tbe work, a competent landsoapc gardener should be
employed to prepare plans, so that
we shall not have to undo after-
warda what wo do at first. The expenditure of a few thousand dollars
should make a wonderful transformation, and in the course of a few
years Westminster may be able to
pride lierwitf on-possessing the finest
park in Britisli Columbia.
The Ottawa correspondent of the
Toronto Mail says-that Senator Mclnnes, of thife.city, has been'waking
some 'vory disturbing statements
about the exodus of Canadians to
the United States.'in dealing with
this subject the senator said he had
taken, the trouble. to address a circular letter to ' one hundred and
twnlve United States consular agents
In tha Dominion, nsking.for a state-
Inept of the' number of consular
certificates granted to the heads of
families who were moving with their
household goods to the United
States. He Jiad recoived replies
IWFffut theST They covered the
years' 1886, 1886 and 1887. It
showed that in the year 1885 thore

thesej84 consular districts; in 1886,

■The Probable Origin of His Namo—Some
Legends AUpptm^
' There in no doubt or ambiguity frith regard to the earliest partof Judas laoariot'n
name, Judas Is merely the Greek or Heir
lenistic form of tho Hobrew !'Judnb,''
familiar to everybody. But "Iscariot" Is,
as it has always been, a puzzle.
At least half a dozen interpretations of
the word havo been suggested by philologists, but no one of them Is In aU respects
satisfactory.. The most seeming of their
number Is that tho worn is a condensed or
corrupted form of the two Hebrew words,
'■'Ish Ker loth," 'leaning "the man of
Ki-rioth," Kerioth being a village in
Southern Palestine, where perhaps Judas
or hfs family had their origin.
The name, however, is of no consequence
for our present purpose; and we have remarked ib Only to show the mystery attaching io the man in every phase of his
I ou rrn-.un lings.
"With regard to his birth, legend and
myth are ns copious as is conjecture with
regard to his name. Here are twoof them,
for which we are immediately Indebted to
Moncuro Conway:
.In tho apocryphal "Gospel cf tho In-
fancy,"it la related that a demoniacal boy, <
brought to thu child Jesus, strikes him,
whereupon Jesus weeps, and Satan cornea
out of the boy iu the shape of a furious
dog.   This boy was Judas.
According,to another legend, Judas'
mot ber. had a dream *!)efore his birth that
her sou would murder, his father and* sell
> his God,  To avert this, the child was sunk.
in the sea, but was cast on shore.   He was
ndopted by t\ king and queen, who had a
iiiir, whom Judas slew.   He fled to Judea,
beeame the page of Pilate, and, after tho
| predes' Ined murder of his father, learned
I from ids mother her dream.   In terror
L and cmitrition Judas hears of a prophet
f who forgives siiiB.; y^en he throws liiuK
[ Belf iit HIS feet, JeSus, recognizing his predestined betrayer, accepts, him as a dls-
L ciple, and intrusts him with the purse so;

A Sblnn.lt Mill Burned.
Mr. Wolford, of Surrey, who was in
town yesterday, brings tho intelligence
that Mr. John Elwood's shingle mill
on tho SomiuhnmoD spit was burnod
last Monday. This mill employed
about ten men, and was turning out a
large quantity of shingles. A house
adjacent was also destroyed, and soveral othor buildings, including a boarding house and store, had a narrow escape. We have not learned how tho
fire originated. This mill, wesre told,
belonged to the Murne estate. It will
bo remembered that Murne met a
tragic fate in this city last year at the
hands of Shearer.

The Juvenile Opera Co. opened in

age of the actors. Yesterday afternoon
Pinafore was put on the stage and last
evening the Mikado, both of which
performances were largely attended.
The company scored a complete success and will meet with a warm reception should they ever return. The arrangements regarding the Bents were
not generally understood and much
dissatisfaction was oxpressed on all
sides

Tarns np In LaniIcy.
A narrator informs lis that last Friday night a lively panther chase ensued at Langley Prairio. A buy informed Mr. Wm. Murray's household
that a wild-cat was up a treo n short
distanco from the house. Tho young
men with some neighbors and their
doge end guns immediately advanced
on the enemy, which turned out to bo
an immense panther, according to our
informant, with a "head as big as a
water-pail and a tail six-foot long!"
Before the dogs renched the tree the
animal made a tmmendoua spring and,
gaining the ground, disappeared in the
woods, with the men nnd dogs after
him. Tho indefatigable hunters continued tho chnso until a late hour, but
their game oluded them fur the time.
Onr narrator informed ns that it wns
the intention of tbe young men to organize a grand hunt fur tho 24th, when
tbey hoped to bo morn successful.
This huge beast ami hisussuciates have
destroyed many calves in Langloy
Prairie, and ho is probably mine other
than the "patriarchal cougar" uf Surroy. It is to be hoped tho hunt-men
of Langley may "settle his hash."
Oar Visitor. Yesterday.
Probably there were not less than
1000 visitors in this cily yesterday,
and a great many of these saw the
royal city for the first timo. lt is unnecessary to say that, as a rule, they
were greatly delighted with their visit.
In many respects the sports undoubtedly fell short of tho expectations
of some; but wo pointed out a few duys
ago that all tho arrangements had to
be made hastily in consequence of the
lato date at which it was determined
to hold any public celebration at all.
In some circles thero have been coin-
plaints because no formal reception was
given to tho people who eamo over
from Vancouver to join in the festivities, and some of our oitisens hsve been
drawing contrasts between this and
the reception accorded to Westminster
on tho occasion of hor last visit to
Vancouver. But these persons overlook the fact that the circumstances
were vory different. On the former
occasion Vaucouver city council sent a
formal invitation to the eity counoil
and oitizons of Westminster, whereas
yesterday there had been no such invitation. The people of Vancouver
cauio over of thoir own freo choice,
ond wore welcomed in the same way as
peoplo from any other part of the
provinoo. All are welcome at sll times
to como to uur city, but iu the absence
of u speolal invitation they come as individuals snd cannot look for ao offi
cial reception. We are sure there
oould not have been any respectable
number of people from Vanconver
yesterday who approved of the reference to this matter contained in the
New* this morning. The person who
wrote lhat complaint could nut hnvo
been aware of the circumstances, or he
must have a strange conception cf propriety. Our city officials know well
enough how to receive and entertain
those whom they invite to be guests
of tho city, but thoy oannot bo expected tu meet evei/ train and every
stoamer and every trip of the ferry-boat
to look after visitors who have come
lo lis of .their own accord without
official invitation.

QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY
How the Day wag Spent In
Westminster.
Fluer weather for the celebration nf
her majesty's birthday than Westmin*
ster wu bletscd wittl .yesterday, eoUld
not haVo boon ashed. Tho day broke
bright and cloar, and although the sun
shone out warm, the cooling breeze
helped to modorute the heat, which
was not oppressive at any time during
dsy. No particular attempt was made
at decorating tbe city, though- flags
wetc flying from every mast and a few
establishments brightened up the appearance of Columbia street by the
judicious use of evergreens. A great
majority of our citizens stayed in the
city and no organized excursions took
placo to outsido points, tho attractions
in town nnd tho visitors front other
oities being sufficient inducement to
keep peoplo at homo- The bulk of tho
visitors eamo from Vanconver, it boing
estimated that fully 700 peoplo of that
place arrived during tho day. The
train that arrived shortly after 11 o'clock
contained about 400 people, the 1
o'clock train brought 200 more and the
2:30 train another 100. The oars were
packed with people, both seats and
aisles being occupied, but although the
comfort in travelling in this way was
not great, few complaint! were heard,
and, as u rulo, the passengers took
everything good-naturedly. Around
town tho streets looked very lively ull
day. Ladies and ohildren dressed in
their best and escorted by husbands,
fathers and sweethearts aided the
general appearance of things, and thoir
pretty and attractiyo dresses helped to
brighten the streets and made the
want of decorations not so observable.
The Grit attraction of tho day was the
shooting match at Brownsville. About
35 mombers went over on the K. de K.
at 7 o'clock, the largest number that
ever attended a prize meeting of the
association. Only the first mstches
were shot as it was impossible to finish
the programme without interfering
with the general arrangements of the
day. The shooting was fair though
not as good as usual, which waa probably owing to the disordered state of
the nerves brought about by such an
oarly start in tho morning. The following were the successful competitors
and their scores:
MAIDEN  STAKES.
Open to mombers of the association
who have never won a prize at any
previous meeting. Range, 200 yards.
5 shots.
M. Mowat, 20 points—Pair gold
sleeve buttons.

R. Bonson, 17—Straw hat.
C. W. Homer, 10—Penknife.
J. McMurphy, 15—Water carrier.
It. Lister, 15—Pound tobacco.
S. T. Tidy, 12—Pound tobacco.
f"1,"""".si.x*ii*Nii:jaWn;
Open to all members of the association. Banges, 200 and 400 yards.
5 shots at each range. Entranco fee,
50 cents.
O. B. Ackerman, 38 points—Silver

L. F. Bonson, 35 — Meerschaum

A. F. Cotton, 35—90 hat.
W. Wolfenden, 34—Pair vases.
J. H. Sharpe, 33—Ham.
Geo. Turnbull, 32—Pencil cose.
Serat. Smith, 32—Briar pipe,
0. Hnmbor, 32—Pair slippers.
The remaining two matches will bo
fired on Saturday afternoon.
Tho basobsll match, Vsncnuver vs.
Westminster, cummeiteed almost immediately after the arrival of the 9
o'clock train. Tlie teams wore very
evenly matched and tho gume was one
of tho best ever played iu British Columbia, lu their lirst innings Westminster took 5 runs, but tho Vancou-
vorites soon settled down to play and
overy base secured after tho first innings was well earned. Tho pitchers
and catchers were well up to their
work though it was noticeable that
Westminster had the advantage ovor
its opponents in this particular department. The base keeping and holding
were excellent on both sides. The
teams were composed as follows:
Westminster—Baker, Upper, Spencer,
Greig, Working, Cunningham, White,
Wilson, Winters.
Vancouver—Lang, Flannigan, Bro-
phy, Metz, Larwill, Allan, Tuck, Mo-
Lell.it), Norval.
At the closo of tho Oth inning r the
umpire declared tho gamo finished in
order to allow tho cricket match to
commence, which was supposed to begin at 11 o'clock. When tho game
was called Westminster stood winner
with a score of 0 to Vancouver's 8.
Mr, Mott acted as umpire to the satisfaction of both teams.
Stumps wore pitched by the cricketers shortly after 11 o'clook and playing commenced immediately. As a
wholo Vnncouver showed tbo best
play, aud mure particularly in wicket-
keeping uud fielding. Fur Vancouver
Nelson's wirrkut keeping was grand,
nnd Preiser's bowling wns unusually
id, and for Westminster Miles and
ickrill did exoellent work. Although
Vanoouver won by 55 runs tho defeit
can not be called a bad one, and when
tho clubs meet again tho gap will not
be so wide, The best individual scoro
was made by Miles for Westminster,
who ran up 21 runs before ho wss
bowled.   The following is the score:

Vaulting, a tie between M Mowat
and B Eickhoff.
The tag o' war, between teams chosen from Vancouver and Westminster,
was won by the latter after a hard
struggle. Messrs. Buie, Webb, Bonson and Tietjen deserves muoh credit
for the satisfactory manner in which
the sports were conducted.
The sailing and canoe races attracted
at least a couplo of thousand people
to Front St., and tho spectators manifested a deep interest and displayed
much enthusiasm over the different
events. The sailing was contested by
Mr. Chas. Coutts' host and the Mayflower, tho latter winning after a good
contest The Indian's race, 15 paddles
to a canoe, was won by the crow from
Chilliwhack, of which a Siwash named
Joo was the proud captain. The 11
paddles race was contested by canoes
from Hope, Masquim and Harrison.
The first two fouled, and while they
wero getting disentangled the Harrison
canoe settled the race by crossing tho
line. The boat races wero managed
by Messrs. Johnston, Punch, Laidlaw
and Ewen, and were very successfully
carried out.
At noon a detachment of men from
the artillery, under Oapt. Bole, Lieut.
McNaughten and Lieut. Mowut, fired
a salute of 21 guns from the battery
opposlto the crescent, in the presence
of a large number of people, the majority of whom were ladies, The men
looked well and served the guns like
veterans. Tha members of the Vancouver cricket club were dined by the
Westminstor club aftor the match had
been concluded. ■ A very jolly time
waa spent in speeoh-making, otc. The
Vancouver baseball boys were also well
entertained by the homo club. During
the day tha Westminster band rand
Vancouver band played selections'
and assisted greatly in putting life
into the occasion. The latter band
is au excellent one and would bo a
credit to auy city, and tho people nf
Westminster owe them a dobt of gratitude for tbeir kindliest in e-niing over
and playing so frequently during Ibe
day, without eumpeiisatiou aud under
a bulling sun. Alderman Ovons had
charge of the visitors nnd was careful
to see thoy lacked nothing procurnhlo
in the shape of eating snd drinking.
Tho bulk of tho visitors returned to
Vancouver ou the 8:30 train and by 10
o'clock the city had once more resumed
its customary quiet. The day, on the
whole, was a great success and the people of Westminster may feel proud of
tho manner in which her majesty's
natal day wns celebrated in the royal
city.
Mayor Dickinson and tbe members
of the council were round town all day
nnd aided iu every possible way tho nr-
rangomeuts of tho celebration.
