SCIENTIFIC! MISCELLANY.
Water of Woods.—The proportion of water held by different woods
varies greatly. According to
Scheubler and Hurtig, freshly-cut
horn-beam contains 18.6 per cent of
water; willow, 26. per cent.; ash,
28.7 per oent; birch, 30.8 per cent.;
oak, 34.7 per oent; pino, 39.7 per
cent; red beeoh, 39.7 per cent; elm,
44.5 per cent; larch, 48.6 per cent;
and white poplar, 50.6 per cent.
An Akoieot Chair.—What is
probably the most venerable piece
of furniture in existence has just
been deposited in the British museum, It is the throne of Queen
Hatasu, who reigned in the Nile
Valley some 1600 years bofore
Christ and 29 years before Moses.
This now dilapidated object seems
to be of lignumvitae, the carvings of the legs being inlaid with
gold, and those of the back with
silver.
One of the Sea's Dangers.—A
curious acoustic phenomenon, sometimes observed at sea, has been
termed by M. Fizcau the "mirage of
sound," from its anology to certain
well-known phenomena of light.
The sound-waves are defected up
ward to a very marked extent under the influince of strata of air of
various temperatures, and to this
effect are ascribed numerous collisions between vessels having powerful fog-signals.
Finder Lengths.—A comparison
of the lengths of the first and third
fingers has been many years in pio-

gross. Ancient Greek ait.seemi
have found tne greater beauty in a
longer fore-finger, but in the Apollo
Belvidere there, is no appreciable
difference in the lengths of the two.
Gorillas, orang outangs and bush-
men have a longer third finger, while
among European! and Americans
the longer finger is sometimes the
first, sometimes the third, and sometimes troth appear of equal length.
"Russian Sanitation.—In an aggregate population of 100,000,000
in Russia, according to Dr. Rubnofi',
there are only about 5000 medical
men, while no working sanitary
system cap be sail-to .taut,, inr the
empire. In some districts the death-
rate ranges from 60 to 80 per 1000,
and in spite of a high birth-rate the
population of the country is increasing only at the rate of 1 per cent
That a frightful penalty in human
lives is paid for neglect of publio
health is shown by the fact that of
the total of some 2,800,000 yearly
deaths something like 1,000,000 may
fairly be traced to preventable
causes.
A Sanitary Instrument.—An
apparatus for measuring the proportion of oorbonic acid in the air cf a
room has been patented by Prof.
Wolpert, of Nurnberg. By means
of a siphon-arrangement, a drop of
red liquid—soda-solution with plie-
nol-phtbalein—is made to trickle
down a prepared white thread, about
a foot and a half long, every 100
seconds. In pure air the drop continues red down to the bottom, but
it loses its color by the action of car-
bonio acid, the quickness of the effect varying with the amount of that
gas prtsent. Air is assumed to bo
distinctly unwholesome when its
carbonic acid exceeds I part in 1000;
and the scale placed behind the
thread gives indications from '-pure
air" (up to 0.7 per 1000) to "extre
niely Ind" (from 4 to 7 or more per
1000).
Comet-Seeking and Its Profits.
—Comet seeking is recommended by
Mr. W. F. Denning, the English
astronomer, as attractive work for
amateurs with telescopes of four to
ten inohes in aperture. No systematic search for comets is mane in
Europe, and the fame and spoils of
comet-finding are chiefly won by
two indefatigable American observers—Barnard at Nashville, Tenn.,
and Brooks at Phelps, N.Y. Each
of these astronomers hits discovered
nine comets in six years, and of the
Warner prises—which have added
muoh to the interest of this depart-
ment of astronomy—they havo received over $2700. Many comets
of course elude discovery, but the
number of thoie detected haa great,
ly inoreased during recent years,
having been only fourteen in the decade 1827 to 1836 and 49 in the decade 1877 to 1886.

THE BATTLE FLAG RESOLUTION.
Washington, Jan. 30. The war department's reply to Congressman
Boutelle's battle flag resolution is about
completed and will probably be forwarded to the house early this week.
Army officers say that the answer will
show the resolution to have developed
into a boomerang. It will show that
if any law has been violated by this
administration the by return of captured
trophies some of the former secretaries'
of war are equally guilty,for lists compiled, and which will form part of the
department's reply, show thot
many more flags wore delivered by
Secretary Stanton and some of his
successors than under the present
regime.
HOPE THERE 13 NO TROTH   IN IT.
Montreal, Jan. 30.— The celebrated
libel case of the Montreal athletic association against the evening Post, in
connection wilh the articles published
last September alleging that certain
members of the Montreal club sold a
game, began this morning. The principal witness was Irving Jenkins, a
saloon keeper of McGill atreet, who
testifled that Brady, McNaughton and
Patterson, of the Montrealers, agreed
to make their club lose three straight
games for 50 per cent, of the monoy
won by betting on tho event, and that
they paid $25 ns a forfeit for tho faithful carrying out of the agreement.
The scheme una hatched by himself
and Flannigan, a livery stable keeper,
and Detective Pahey, now under ar-
Ttst, was also in it. Uo made ubout
$400 by tho transaction. His testimony was partly corroborated by John
McLaughlin, bur-keeper at the Balmoral House. The trial is proceeding.
the famous wire-puller.
London, Jan. 30.—Schandhorst, the
famous liberal wire-puller and electoral
manager, is to run for parliament in
the first borough iu which the liberals
have uny show of electing their man.
It is not quite a year since Mr, Schandhorst was presented with a check for
£10,000 for his efficient servicos to the
liberals during last winter's campaign.
HEAVY SNOW FALL.
London, Jan. 30.-A hoavy fall of
snow is reported in tho Rievera.
eVciente,
Berlin, Jan. 30.— Tho Princess
Auguste Victoria, wife of Prinoe
William of Prussia, is oncionte.
THE GREAT TOWER.
London, Jan. 30.—And now wiseacres of Paris are congratulating themselves that they gave expression to
their Incredulity when Engineer Eiffel
proposed his stupendous tower. Yesterday afternoon tho promoters of the
project were thrown into a state of
consternation by a report that the
tower was in serious danger of falling.
The new danger is due to the bursting
of a big water pipe at the base of the
tower. M. Eiffel himself admits the
necessity of strengthening the structure and will proceed with this plan in
view. A committee of engineers are
consulting ubout the feasibility of attempting to bnild a tower 1000 feet
high nnd it is likely that a negative
conclusion will be reached.
NOTED CANADIANS   AD1IOAD.
Toronto, Jan. 30.— The principal
event in tlio central bank on Saturday
was the departure of C. K. Humphries
(belter known ns "the judge"), Cox's
coiitiiKttitia' clerk. This swell, the
nnnibt-r of departures to seven. "The
judge" told a friend that ho would
probably visit Now Orleans lo attend
Mnrtli ili-as festivities bofore his return. It is thought that Humphries
is the mysterious "Peter" mentioned
frrquemly in the cipher despatches
that passed between Cox and Allen
prior to tho brink's suspension. The
addresses of tho absent ones are as
follows: David Blain, Tift Houso,
Buffalo; A. A. Allen, West House,
Minneapolis; E.S. Cox, WaddelHouse,
Cleveland; R. O. T. Burnett and S.
Magnus Davis, New York. D. Mitchell MacDonald was seen in Omaha on
Friday en route to California.
ROSSA ADVOCATES MORE DYNAMITE.
New York, Jan. 20.—The Irish
volunteers held a meeting to-night at
which 0'Donovan Rossi nnd Frank
O'Bryno wero tho principal speakers.
Both advised Irishmen to imitate the
men who killed Cavendish nntl Burke,
and urged that the Lord Lieutenants,
the Chief Secretaries and the Judges
in Irelniid should be assassinated. The
use ni dynamite wns advocated, and
the Irish woro advised to trust their
leaders and supply them with funds to
urge war on England.
CARDINAL OlllllONS   AND THE POPE.
London, Jan, 30.—The CnromWe
prints a despatch from Paris thia mom-
ing which states that Cardinal Gibbons
has written another letter to the pope
urging the Vatican not to condemn
the writings of Henry George who, the
Cardinal says, simply follows the theories of Herbert Spencer and John
Stuart Mill and that it will be best to
allow thorn to die a natural death.
A despatch from Damascus stales
that Turkish soldiers invaded Ihe
French Consulate nt that place, and
arrested nn Algerian for whom they
were seeking. The French government demands satisfaction for Iho act,
but the Porte in reply claim, that thi
Algerians are Turkish subjects and
that the soldiers had a right to arrest
the man where they found him,

THE MINERS GRIEVANCES.
■ Washington, San. 31.—Tha oon-
mittee which claims to represent 82,-
000 striking coal miners in Pennsylvania, present to the house this afternoon a petition which says the Reading and Lehigh Valley Railroad and
coal companies and others have conspired to force up coal to unreasonable
figures and have enforoed a lookout to
prevent raining. They ask for the appointment of a commission to investigate the matter.
FATAL COLLISION.
O'Dissa, Jan. 31.-In a collision
between a mail and freight train yesterday near Mickailouke, three persons were killed and 36 hurt.
THE FISHERIES   COMMISSION.
Washington, Jan. 31.—The im*
pression prevails that tile fisheries
commission has, after all, reached some
agreement satisfactory to the Ameri'
can negotiators. What that agreement is it is impossible to ascertain*
though it may include the surrender
of one or two minor points by Bayard.
This statement is based on a remark
made by Secretary Bayard to Re'
presentative Dingley, of Maine. It
has been the intention of Dingley to
report favorably from common ways
and means today a bill prohibiting
fishing by foreign vessels in American
waters. The bill is primarily intended
to deprive Canadian fishermen of the
Srivileges now onjoyed by them.
ringley broached the subject to Bayard and the latter asked him in the
most urgent manner to delay the report of. th«JiUl,t9.^.*«u|sa>hfliig>t
seriously endanger the success of pending negotiations, which were about
coming to a close. ■'■
Like all Sterling Remedies, Northrop ft Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Cure deserves a fair trial.
It would be absurd to suppose tbat this
or any othor medicine of kindred nature
could produco instantaneous effects. '
For the thorough rcmoiol of Chronic
Dyspepsia, Constipation, Liver Complaint, and other ailments to which it is
adapted, its use should be continued
some time, even after the chief symptoms
are relieved. That it then effects complete cures is a fact established by ample
and respectable evidence.
THIS AFTEKJfOON'S DESFiTOtM.
THE SHARON  DIVORCE CASE.
San Franoisco, Jan. 31.—The supreme court has just affirmed Judge
Sullivan's decision in the celebrated
divorce oase, exoept as to Reynold's
counsel's fees.
AN EXPERIMENT WITH AMMONIA.
Calumet, Mioh., Jan. 30.—President Agassis has decided to send 25
tons of concentrated ammonia down
the burning shafts of the Calumet and
Heels mines at once to put out the fin
completely if possible.
ITALY IN THE SOUDAN.
Rome, Jan. 31.—It is officially announced from Massowah that the Italians will occupy Ssati to-morrow, and
that General San Mara, commander-is-
chief of the Italian expedition army
corps, will transfer his headquarters
thither.
THE ICY EAST,
Nantucket, Mass., Jan. 31.—It la
two weeks since any mail haa been received here. The sound is full of ice
which exends seaward as far as the eye
can reach. There ib no suffering
on this island as yet, although
there is a scarcity of fuel and other
necessaries. The weather ia moderating.
SUSPICIOUS MOVEMENTS.
Vienna, Jan. 31.—The report of a
diversion of Russian troops towards
Bessarabia is confirmed. Roumanians
fear that the Russians will cross tho
Prouth in overwhelming numbers before the Austrian troops can co-operata
with tho Roumanians.
ROYALTY'S SIMPLE   WAYS,
New York, Jan. 31. — Edmund
Yules' London cable to the Tribune
sny, the Princess Louise and Lord
Lome arc staying in Naples where
thoy livo in a simple unortentatious
fashion, dining at the publio table and
otherwise practising rigid economy.
The princess and her husband travelled incognito, and on their arrival at
Naples walked to the hotel. The manager, however, recognised the princess and offered her a suite of apartments on the first floor reserved for
notables. These were declined as wu
also the suggestion that the illustrious
guests could eat in private.
ANOTHER STRIKE THREATENED.
McKebsport, Jan. 31.—The national tube works, a oompany operating
four thousand, men, We posted »
notico ordering a reduction of ten por
cent in the wagos of all employees.
If the reduction is net accepted the
firm threatens lo shut down the ontire
establishment Similar aotion hu
beon taken by the Continnental and
Penna tube works companies. Tho
men say they will not submit lo uy
reduction in wages. A general atriko
would throw over six thousand men
out of work in this district alone.

The Victoria Times intimates that
another change is contemplated in
the present mail service. Passengers over tho C.P.R. to aud from
California are to a large extent
availing themselves of tho overland
route from Tacoma to San Francisco, via the Oregon <Ss California
Railway. Hy this route they avoid
the long water voyago of 900 uiilos
which to mnny people is very objectionable. Tho efficiency of this
route, the Times says, is to be increased by a daily lino of steamers
between Vancouver and Tacoma,
and it further intimates that the
Pacific coast mails will go by thnt
line. In this event mails botwecn
Victoria and tho Pacific stales will
go via Vancouver, and tho present
mail subsidy betwoen Pugot Sound
and Victoria will by withdrawn.
This change, if it takes place, will
greatly increase the facilities for intercourse between the mainland of
Britisli Columbia end the Pacific
states, but very likely the people of
Victoria will kick ngainst it. They
may always be counted on to kick
at any change by whioh it is proposed to giro increased accommodation to any part of British Columbia
unless the advantages are to be
shared by Victoria as well.
A new authority has come to tho
surface in connection with the case
of the crown prince of Germany.
A London specialist of the name of
Dr. Hovell is said to have made a
careful diagnosis of the troublesome
throat, and. comos to the conclusion
that there is no cancer. This man
is a friend of Sir Morell Mackenzie,
whose opinion his diagnosis confirms. Dr. Hovell, having convinced himself of the nature of the
trouble, began a course of treatment
in accordance with his theory, and
this treatment is said to hove proved
entirely sjtisfactory. The crown
prince began to show evident signs
of improvement, and with the approval of Dr. Mackenzie the course
of treatment has been continued.
It is said that the best medical
authorities of London agree that
the disease is not cancer, and the
opinion prevails very extensively
that tho princo will recover and be
able to return to Cermnny in the
spring. Cancer, it is said, cannot
be cured. If it is cut out, it is sure
to return again, and the pntient
does not improve, but keeps on constantly growing worse. If these
two eminent London physicians
should succeed in affecting a cure in
this case, everybody will rejoice, and
the fact will be one of peculiar satisfaction to the British people.
The slowness cf official machinery
is proverbial. It is now u week
since the Fraser Iii ver was sufficiently clear of ice to permit steamers to
reach this eity, but, so far as we
know, nothing has yet been done
towards replaoing Uio buoys. At
a millitary station in India a military pic-nic was held in a shady
grove, where a platform had been
erected for dancing. Whilo the
company were at luncheon, a large
tiger planted himself on this platform. As the gathering was under
military auspices, and the commanding officer happened to be absent,
no one felt at liberty, without regular orders, to interfere with the
tiger, A messenger was despatched
to the nearest telegraph office and a
telegram was sent to the military
headquarters at Bombay: "Tiger
on the planforni: awaiting instructions." From Bombay the despatch
went to Calcutta, and after hunting
up the person authorized to act in
such matters, in about two days a
reply oame back: "Shoot the tigor."
The displacement of the buoys at
the mouth of the ri set renders navigation difficult, and may result in
disaster. There ought to be authority enough vested in somo local
official to order the replacement of
these buoys immediately, lt is a
case of the utmost urgency. If it is
necessary to obtain instructions first
from Ottawa, no one knows what
may happen before the difficulty is
removed. If one of our steamers
should happen to strike on the
sandheads and go to pieces, then we
suppose the officials would wake up
and put the buoys in place.
The programme which Mr. Humphreys seems to have marked out
for himself in the provincial legislature is evidence of an aggressive
policy. He is laying out work for
himself, for the house, and for the
printing department regardless of
cost. Soma of the questions asked
were anticipated and answered in
the speech from the throne; others
worn to us frivolous; and some are
donbtleu intended to embarrass the
adminstiftion. Tbo rights and liberties of tho people's representatives
are very large, and ought not to be
curtailed without very good reason,
It must be clear, however, that
compliance with all the foolish requests ol members whose ohief object's not the public interest but
•elf-glorifioation and a determinion
to bothefthe government by evory
possible dorice, may lead to domor-
alitation. When the imperial house
of commons bund the obstructive
Ucties of ,tke ItorfUtet were bring-
ing it into contempt, ~i wtorfenng
unnecessarily with the progress of
public business, tho rules of tho
houso wore changed so as to meet
the emergency. Last year and the
year previous a number- of returns
wero asked for by members of our
legislature tlie preparation and
printing of which cost the country
many hundreds of dollars without
accomplishing any useful purposo.
If the first day's proceedings may
be accepted as a fair index of what
is to como, the cost of preparing and
printing returns asked for by members who are fishing about in the
hopo of boing able by some chance
to trip up the government will
come to be a very large item in the
public accounts. Whilo tho rights
of members should bo carefully
guarded, therefore, so also should
the interests of tho country; nnd the
house should refuse to entertain enquiries which, while involving expense, are evidently not intended
to promote the public interest.
Mr. C. E. Riggins, Beanrsville, writes:
"A customer who tried n bottle of
Northrop b Lyman's Vegetable Dis*
covery says it is the best thing ho ever
used; to quote his own words, 'It just
seemed to touch the spot affected.'
Abont a yoar ago ho had an attack of
bilious fever, and was afraid he was in
for another, when I recommended this
valuable medicine with suoh happy
results,"
Constipation
It a universal and most troublesome disorder. It causes Headache, Mental Depression, impairs tlio Sight and Hearing,
destroys the Appetite, ond, when long
continued, causes Enlargement of tho
Liver, Inflammation of the Bowels, and
Piles*. Constipation is speedily cured
by Ayer's Pills.
For a number of months I was
troubled with Costivcnoss, in consequence of which I suffered from Loss of
Appetite. Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled mo. I was
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, wns unable to bear exposure to the light.  I was entirely
CURED BY USING
tiiree boxes of Ayer's Pills. I have no
hesitation in pronouncing this medicino
to be the best cathartic ever made. —
James Eccles, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, con**
sequently, from Headacho, Indigestion,
and Piles, for years. Ayer's Pills, which
I took at the suggestioniof a friend, havo
given me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, the removal of which has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and ercatly improved my general health.—W. Keeler,
Amherst, Mass.
I Buffered from Constipation, which
assumed such an obstinate form that I
feared a stoppage of the bowels. Two
boxes of Ayer's Pills cured mo, completely.—Di Burke, Saco, Me.        tt

"LilliMl   Dam little Lillian I" '
SheHfted herhctd, and her ahjr brown
evet met those of the speaker. A dan-
' sernualv handsome man, Lloyd Middle*
ton knew how to use his power, and tbo
childish little creature whoso soft eyes
drooped before his gaze, waa a woman
worth «inning.
For Lillian Raldgh.was; tht only
chilrl of a very* nato****** who fairly'ww-'
shiped hia uMKerleanflaughierv (and
Lillian had never knoans caw, or»wish
unriratelied. But her guardian angel
must have trembled to see her so completely in tho toils of the man at her
side.
It was a pretty scent. A long stretch
of sandy whito beach; tht daneiig
wav«t oi a romantio Southern lake rolling it aUh.ii* feet, at tbey sat. btMttb
i tha shade of a widfsnneading oak tree:
while; ''tht old, oldT story wat told
again."
"Vou lovt me, Lillian f"
A vivid crimson Sew into her fair
I cheeks.   She turned her head away, but
her arnnll hand tiremMad. Lloyd Middle-
ton raised it to his lips, as she faltered
timidly:
"Veal"
"My. darling 1" he- whispered, In bit
eyea a look ol triumph.
There was-no room for donbt Every
look anil action betrayed Lillian Raleigh's heart, i-he loved him with all
the Rtr.'iigtli of a lint lore—wild, unrea-
sonini: --ami she would love him until
death rami', or that which is worse than
death-disillusion.
Hebtnt his head, and Sl*hold ty»s
gazed Mo her face,
"May I speak to your father, Lillian,
tnd beg him to give me his treasure?"
the sort, seductive voice went on.
A richer tinge of crimson overspread
the girlish face, bnt therowns consent in
the soft brown eyctwbiirh mtt hie tot an
instant, thetdroopediN-siii.i-He.atQoptd
and kissedi the •wsekredr lips.
"Heaven Mess you, my darling I" ho
**h spared.
An I Lillian went straight to jaradise,
and remained there half an hour perhaps, which is more bliss tban most
mortals are permitted to experience.
The awakening came in the shape of a
. pretty boat, which bounded over the
f waves like a white.wioged bird; it's sole
occupant, a msn o'roint: five-mrd-twenty
years, with a thoughtful face, and kindly
itray eyes. Those eyes fell upon the pair
beneath the oak tree, and lie began at
once 'tacking' for shore.
I.loyd Miildletonirowned darkly.
"Confound the ffllow I" he muttered
behind bis heavy black mustache. Turning to Lillian, he observed) with aa muoh
carelessness:
There's Tom Hunter coming to land!
Lily, he does not like me—he never did 1
Don't let him become between us, my
darling!"
r One quick, impetuous glance from the
big, brown eyes, and Uoyd Middltton
was satisfied.
she loved him, ud shews, as tra* as
steel.
The boat drew near, and Tom Hunter's
clear voice called gayly:
"Come, Miss lJilian. I want to take
you for a sail! Yon know you promised me the pleasure I" "
Again that Irown darkened Uoyd Mid-
p dleton's handsome face.
"Go, if you wish It, LilUnu," he laid in
low tone,  "I can trust you.  For I
m know that he is going to try and prejudice you against me. You will be true 1"
"Hli I -lio!-'

Rt. Andrew's Ward Elect Ion.
Nominations for the new elections in
St. Andrew's ward will take1 place tomorrow betweon 12 and 2 p. ni., and
polls will be opened on Feb. 4th at 10
a. m. and cIobo at 4 p. m. The nominations are expected to be the same as
at the last election, and it is very unlikely other candidates will enter the
field. That tho contest will be close
and exciting there can be no doubt,
but whether the results will bo tho
same as at last election is a matter of
great uncertainty. Tho friends of all
the candidates are prepared to make a
hot flght of it, and there will bo but fow
votes in the ward not cast when the
polls close.
Who Is He t
About two weeks ago information
was given to the polico hero that an
old man who was living iu a shack near
Mr. Lawrence's ranch, about 16 miles
west of town, was in a destitute condition. Supt. Mcllree sent out and had
the man brought to the barracks here.
It was found that his bauds and feet
were badly frozen, and, although he
was given the best of treatment in the
public hospital, he died last night. His
name was not known. Ho himself
gave his name as both Marsh aad Scott,
Ho will be buried in the Calgary cemetery, and the public are endeavoring to
find out something of his antecedents.

The steamer K. de K. came to grief

It appears that somo time after the
the cold snap commenced one of the
exhaust pipes filled with water, froze
and finally burst. When tho weather
moderated tho pipe thawed and being
below the water mark tho water ran in,
and escaping through tho leak soon
filled the steamer and sank her, Tho
K. de K. now lics'in a forlorn looking
condition, her hull and upper works
being almost submerged. The water
is high in the river at present and
nothing can be done to restore the K

The Coal Mines shut Down.
The str. Dunsmuir, Capt. Rogers,
from Nanaimo, arrived in port last
night. Capt. Rogers reports everything quiet in Nanaimo and Wellington, the miners not having returned
to work since the explosion last week.
It is stated the miners have decided to
do no more work until a thorough
examination is made of the mines, and
the cause for the numerous explosions
explained. In consequence of this decision all the mines are shut down and
not an ounce of coal is being brought
to tho surface. Six sailing vessels und
two steamships are lying in Nanaimo
awaiting cargoes, but thore is no telling how long they will have to wait.
Capt. lingers could not get suflicient
coal fur tho round trip and has been
obliged to ptirchaao wood for the return
trip. The last explosiun has hod a bad
offect on the miners and thoy aro very
nervous as to the future.
A -faille Ulna's Love.
Dr. W. W. Orton married Miss Cal-
lie Page in Portland, Oregon, a few
dayB ago. One condition made by the
young lady before the marriage was
that the venerable cattle king should
give Miss Page $2G,0C3. He gave tho
young lady $1,000 in gold and a check
for 825.000. Hardly had (he last word
of the marriage rites been uttered
when a telegram was brought to the
brido by a telegraph boy, who was out
of breath. This telegram conveyed
tho sad intelligence that a near relative
was on the point of death at Seattle.
Luckily, tho bride said, the Sound
train started in a few minutes. Mrs.
Orton just caught the train, and only
had timo to bid Mr. Orton a hasty
good-bye, sweet-heart good-bye. Mrs.
Orton, however, did not oven in the
height of her excitement over tbe sad
intelligence forget tbe $20,000 which
had been given her. Tho $1,0CJ in
coin and 825,000 check were in hor
satchel when she boarded the train.
When Dr. Orton had time to recover
his breath aud to consider the matter,
ho concluded that he had been victimized, aud left for San Francisco.—

I'arewcll Words,
There was a large crowd at Olivet
Baptist Church on Sunday night tu
hear the farewell sermon of Rov. Robt
Lennie, who has resigned his position
os pastor. Tho Rev. gentleman took
for his text Ex. 1*1:15 "And the Lord
said unto Moses, Wherefore criost tlum
to mo? Spoak unto the children of
Israel that they go forward." Aftor
referring to the circumstances under
whicli the words were spoken, tho
speakor said there woro times when
prayer alone was not sufficient, but
should bo accompanied by action. We
must oet in obedionco to God at all
hazards, ond such action will always
result in success. After elaborating
the text and applying it, tho rev. gentleman gave a brief account of his own
life as a minister of the gospel, and tho
marked success which had attended his
labors for the Master in England, Scotland and Eastern Canada, a success
whieh ho attributed to his trust in God
for a blessing on his lobors. In September, 1884, he came to this coast on
account of failing health, and spent
four months at Whatcom, W. T. In
January, 1885, ho arrived at Westminster. Here ho found tho scattered
fragment of a church, numbering four
mouthers, who had had no kind of a
meeting for more than a year. For
nearly two years lie preached in the
court houBe. Theso, said the preacher,
were times of much anxietyand not a
little labor. Theso shoulders carried
almost every burden. Pastor of tho
church, superintendent of the Sobbath
School, teacher of the bible class, financial agent, treasurer and chairman of
the building committee woro all in one.
At last our new house of worship Was
commenced, finished, dedicated. It
cost about 8G.0CD. Of thot sum he
himself had raised and paid into the
fund (including his own personal subscription) .between §1200 and 81300
—ovor one-fifth of the whole amount,
Besides, he hod secured a pulpit sofa
worth $25 (iho gift of a personal friond
in Toronto), ond a communion set
worth $30, tho gift of the Jorvis street
prayer meeting, Toronto. ■ During tho
three years of his ministry horo he had
given tho hand of fellowship to 52 now
members, and at this moment, allowing for all deductions, 52 names remained on the roll. During the progress of the work many eyes had been
watching. From the east he had received many lottors of congratulation.
Men from the east, und missionary societies, havo praised our work. Rev.
J. C. Barker, lote superintendent of
missions, wrote: "There is nothing
better on tho Pacific Coast." The
Columhian, referring to tbe dedication
services, spoke of our " phenomenal
success." And while he would ever
regret the disturbance of harmony ond
consequent dissolving of the relation
existing between them ns pastor and
peoplo, his duty was clear. " Go forward " was tho word; and so he would
go out into the future, with no definite
plan, having no source of income but
his character and brains. But the Lord
God omnipotent reignoth, and at His
command ho was ready to march into
the sea, with his large aud preciods
family, believing that He would lead
them through. May His cau-c prosper ! For the people of Westminster,
he said, he would cherish a tendor regard. For their kind appreciation of
any little public service thoy had his
warmest thanks. He said his family
would remain hero, and perhaps they
would mako this their permanent
home; and any service he could render
would be cheerfully given to any good
cause. Perhaps his voice would never
again be heord in this house—the houso
which had coat him more labor and
sorrow and anxiety and money thon
any other house of worship. He did
not imiore the help of the building
committee, of the members of the
church. All had done well towards tho
material structure, which wos now entirely freo from debt; but those living
now, ond coming generations, would
never know what this house, and tho
church meeting in it, hod cost him in
mental strain, in nervous force, in deep
anxiety and solicitude. " Go forward !
Will some one lift np the weight that
hangs upon my spirit to-night," Baid
the speaker, '' by going forward to the
cross 1 There i3 lifo in a look at the
crucified one."

Walla Walla, Jan. 28. — Fivo
prisoners in the county jail broke out
this morning about 11 o'clock by sawing a bar to get into the outside window,'and then by digging through the
brick wall, Their names aro James
O'Brien, who was lately discharged
from the penitentiary after having
served two years for robbery; was in
county jail for resisting an officer.
Geo. Rodenbarger, a prisoner from
Garfield county, and Ed. DeWitt, H.
Olgood and Joseph Mason, in for burglary. None have yet been apprehended, but no doubt tbey will be, as the
officers aro on their track.
New Yokk, Jan. 29.—In the hospital for the ruptured and crippled, at
Lexington avonue and 42nd stroet,
thore are 103 crippled children under
treatment. About 6:45 this evening
the younger of these children were in
bed, others were preparing to retire,
and a few of the older children were
eating their supper in the basement,
Two of tho latter, Louisa Fohlig, aged
12, and Mary Greeley, aged 10, started
upstairs to go to bed. Ou reaching
the second floor they were suddenly
enveloped in clouds of smoke. Both
children are suffering from spinal disease, and can walk only will difficulty.
Without Bcreaming or manifesting
fright iu any way they hurried as
rapidly as possible to the third floor,
found a nurse, Helen Dougherty, and
told her tbe building was on fire. The
nurse told them not to tell any of the
children, and sont them to their rooms.
She then sont out word by an assistant
to Matron Webber, who in turn noti
ficd Dr. Gibney, through whom the
alarm was sent as rapidly as possible.
Doctors, nurses, the police ond firemen
as well as a number of citizens, carried
the children from the building. Tho
guests in the Vanderbilt Hotel, opposite, gave up thoir rooms, and 143 of
the littlo sufferers were put in bed
there; others found shelter in private
houses iu the vicinity. There was
much excitement among the spectators
in the street, among whom it wos rumored that sevoral of tho children bad
been burned to death, Fortunately,
all the children wore removed in safety. Meanwhile the firemen fought the
flames, and, after a stubborn battle,
subdued thero. The fire had originated
in a bath-room on the first floor, from
some unknown cause, The damage
done is estimated at $2500. When the
fire had been extinguished the lifeless
body of Mary Donnelly, cook of the
hospital, 45 years old, was found in her
room on the fifth floor, where she had
died from suffocation.
