Urawned out *r Water.
Cincinnati, May 10.—One ofthe
strangest cases of accidental death
ever known, and said to be the only
one of its kind on record, occurred
hero Tuesday. The victim was
Willie Buchrwein, aged two and a
half years. The littlo toddler went
to a hydrant in the yard, and, standing upon his toes, managed to close
his lips over the end of the nozzle of
the hydrant. Then he turned on
the water to its fullest force. The
child's lips seemed glued to the noE-
zlo with such cohesivenoss that his
little body hung suspended from it,
Meanwhile the stream of water
forced itself into his stomach and
lungs, : causing suffocation. His
dreadful predicament was witnessed
by his mother, who, when she attempted to lift him, found to her
horror that 'she could not, I Horror
stricken, she fairly wrenched her
babe from the spout, the violent
separation tearing the skin inside
the mouth. A stream of blood and
water flowed from between his lips
as she lifted him in her arms. A
physician was summoned and found
the ohild beyond aid. The little
fellow died within five minutes, having literally drowned out of water.
The theory advanoed that obtains
the most credence is that the sudden rush of water paralyzed the
muscles of the throat so that the
child could not open its mouth.

New Yobk, May 13.—Mr.G. W.
Smalley telegraphs as follows from
London to the Tribune, under date
May 12: The warlike rumors of
last week have died away, as is the
habit of such rumors. Macedonia
is quiet, the Turkish minister remains at Athens, and the. czar sits,
brooding at St Petersburg oveV his
plans, unable to decide whether the
moment has come for springing the
mine which he has so long been preparing. The German emperor is
again better, and that adds one
more to the many reasons for delay.
As for Gen. Boulanger, he is very
busy with a big book on - the last
war, as dull as it is big, and with a
journey into the department of the
Nord, done in his wonted spectacular way. The papal rescript againit
the plan of campaign and boycotting is still the foremost topio in Ireland. Archbishop Walsh has issued
a kind of anti-rescript, highly respectful in form, but strongly hostile in substance, to the polioy of
Rome. He asks the Irish people
to accept his assurance that neither
the nationalist movement nor the
national league is in the smallest
degree affected by the circular. They
would like to, but they doubt The
Times publishes side by side with
Archbishop Walsh's impassioned letter a telegiam from Home, which
reads like a semiofficial exposition
cf the pope's decree. If, says this
telegiam, any bishop refuses to publish the decree as ordered to his
clergy, he will be subject to the discipline of the church; if tho clergy
charged by the bishop do not publish it to the people, they in turn
are subject to the admonitions of the
bishop; and onoe the publication is
made, no priest can give absolution
to a member of his flock who persists in the practice of boycotting or
the plan of campaign. Any bishop
who opposes the decree will have a
chance to explain his position to tho
pope in person. Not one ecclesiastic in Eome is in doubt as to the
fato that any attempt to argue tho
question will meet.
Tke •■Arrlaa Kni.tr.
London, May U.—The Pott Mall
Gazette, has an account of an interview at Charlottenburg castle between Mr. Stead and Dr. Mackenzie. Dr. Mackenzie looked worn
and anxious, and showed traces of
the long vigils he has maintained in
his attendance upon the emperor.
During tlie interview he was repeatedly summoned to the emperor's
room by an electric bell. He statod
to Mr. Stead that his patient is all
that could bo desired in the way of
temper, patience and cheerfulness.
He is obedient and trustful and as
well dispositioned as a ohild. He
bears pain bravely and does not indulge in needless worrying. The
rumors that he had uskod the chaplain to pray for his release from his
sufferings and that ho longed for
death were untrue It ia by no means
certain, said the doctor, that he has
made up his mind that ho is dying.
He does not suffer from the canula,
nlrhough inflammation and the
sloughing awny of dead cartilage
cause him inconvenience. The reports of the bad odor pervading the
sink rami are gross exaggerations.
Until his majesty's recent severo
ntiaiik nf illness he sat at the   table
at meal times with his family, and
went about, and he did not discommode anyone. The doctor said that
if the emperor's strength improved,
he hoped he could be removed shortly to Potsdam, The emperor is in
the habit of mind common to all
chronics, who alternate between the
belief that they will live a couple of
years when they mentally plan for
the future, and the fear that all will
be over with them in a few days.
Although apparently robust, bis
majesty has not much recuperative
power, and this circumstance would
have rendered fatal tbe operation
proposed in May of last yejw. Dr.
Mackenzie said ra conclusion: 'The
emperor is certainly suffering from
perichondritis, whioh, with disease
of the cartilages, is very dangerous,
though not necessarily fatal. If he
also has career, that will necessarily
prove fatal, sooner or later."

A VKTEItiN   DEAD.
Monikkal, May 20.—One "of the
city's oldest residents, Col. Lovelace,
died on Saturday morning, aged 82.
He began his military career in the
62nd Foot, exchanged into the 18th
and came to Canada, where ha decided
to settle, bought a farm in the eastern
townships, conducted it successfully,
and when the Crimean war broke out
waa the first Canadian volunteer whose
services were accepted, and proceeded
to England and took a leading part in
organising the Imperial Turkish cavalry. He was also commandant and
British consul at Varna. He remained in Turkey till the doss of the
war, when he returned to Montreal.
$t the Fenian raid, though 67, he
volunteered for active service and went
to the front ih command of the Montreal cavalry. Among his decorations
were two Turkish medals, the Crimean
medal, the Victoria Oross, and four
othen.
OERHAN KEPHISAI*. ON   RUNCE.
London, May 91.—The Stondeirrl'i
correspondent at Berlin is informed
upon unquestionable authority that the
imperialdecreethreateningimpositionof
reprisals upon the French, the imminence of whioh wss reported laat week,
will be officially published in the
lisufaannue on Wednesday. The object of the proclamation is to put an
end to the close relations between the
Frenoh and the Alsatians, which hat
become intensely objectionable to the
German government. The emperor
affixed hit tiznature to the decree before Prince Bismarck took his departure for Vtrzin, but the publication hat
been delayed in Ihe hope that the
French authorities would take advantage of the lemi-ollicial hints of Ger-
many't intention to terminate the offensive practices on the frontier, and
thus render the iaiuance of the pro-
cltmation unnccesnry. The lateit
outrage complained of it the causeless
detention by force of a German
traveler named Littaner, wheae treatment at the handt of hia French custodians is said to have been exceedingly brutal and it is this case which
hat decided tho German authorities to
immediately promulgate the decree.
The tension between Germany aud
Ruttia alio inereatea daily. Germany
now propoaea an enormoua tax on
Russian bonds, ao heavy indeed that it
ia difficult to arrive at a concluaion
that ita imposition will not entirely exclude these bondt from tho Geruiau
markets. That thit it the direct result ol the heavy Ruaaian tax on iron,
there ia no doubt, and additional hardships at tho handt of Ruttia may re a-
suitably be looked for by the German
manufacturera. The two empirea
are meanwhile drifting further apart
through a variety of causes.

Editor Columbian.—In looking over
yonr columns last evening, I found
amongat other things that yon advised
the cltizeni to olean up -their primlsss
before the 24th, so that visitors on that
day would admire the «dy appearance of
the royal eity, te. Y'eattrday I had oe.
cation to walk along Front atreet ta tha
vicinity ot the ferry landing and. looking,
at that row of honaea occupied bythe
Chlneae, I could not help eicUImlag,
"What adiagmoeful tight!" Ia former
days this wu the chief hntiaau (art of
tha old Royal City, and would be again

people) wonld put up good tmlldlafB.
Two of theu fandloida, I an told, are
memben of parliament. Than alterable lcproui • looking tenement! are
perhaps more remunerative to their landlords than any other In the oity, and just
ao long u ths tax-gatherer can collect lbs
"spondullos" then honorable ftntleaua
are content.   And be It remembered thn

that country is estimated at a million and a half, and the process of
manumit ion is to be gradual. In 10
years it. is. expected the whole of
theso bondmen will be free, and
o»o»^>no**»-thffprinoiplea of liberty
involved in the Christian faith will
have seored a signal victory. The
area of slavery is steadily decreasing, nnd • ono may confidently look
for' the total suppression of tho
traffic in human beings before tho
closo of the present century. When
that time uoines, and tbe still worse
trailic in intoxicating drinks bus
been squelched,- this world of
oura may. reasonably be looking out
for the millennium.
The American secretary of war
has sent a letter to the senate urging the importance of fortifying
Puget Sound. This, we presume,
is intended us a sort of oftset to the
contemplated fortifications at Esqui-
mdt,w5iich some America*, journals
ha^e..pretended lo believe were the
expression of » hostile feeling towards* the United States. Our friends
acriSs^ the sound may dismiss from
their minds any such foolish delusion. There is about us much probability of Great Britain using her
military forces for.; the purpose of
attacking the United States ns there
is of orgahiaing Wris-tol expedition
ngaihst tho ;nian. in the nioon—so
long arii-the peoplfrof the United
States bohavo themselves. Thero
needbetiO'liarm in "fortifying the
sound, however .."Wo hope to seo
th<K.iiin_e when a closo alliance
among-thei entire Anglo-Saxon family
throughout the world will make it
no longer necessary for Great Britain and Canada to regard the
United 8tat**« iVith* either suspicion
or enVy, ttkid*tlien all tliese fortifications will become a common power
of defence' ior .the confederation.
When this.'result lias been reached
the rest of the world may-take notice of the -fact that the Anglo
Saxon confederacy is afraid of nothing, and will not permit any power
whatever to trifle with its interests..
If 'tfiewKoleof Puget Sound were
to become a vast system- of fortifica-
tioni, we shall feel just ns safe as if
it did not1'mount a single gun.
Th***, never can "be war between
Great' Britain and the United
Sta|es.' .
The 17th inst. was generally observed throughout .Manitoba ns Arbor' Say. In that prairie region
tree* -are both ornamental and useful, and nothing could be more appropriate than the setting apart of
one day in the year for the planting
of trees. But tree planting last
Thdreday'lVai'tiy,ho means confined
to the planting of shade or ornamental.! trees.. Many peoplo took
advantage of the occasion to set out
fruit trees, or to beautify thrir
premises in someway; ahd not a
few spent the day in such amusements na they chose. We aro not
sure but the establishment of an
arbor day in this province would be
productive of excellent results. Ill
this .district, wo liave trees in abundance, but in some sections the landscape oould lie greatly improved and
beautified;: Besides, the time will
come in this country, as it lias como
in moat other countries, when the
natural forests will fall .before advancing, civilisation, und when the
shade slid, protection of planted
trees will bo most grateful, lt has
beon proven beyond doubt that tbo
absence 6f trees materially changes
the climate of nny country, and
affect* especially the quantity of
moisture precipitated; and it will
lie most unsafe for us to permit the
country • to bo denuded of forest
without'taking oftirctivc measures to
restore at least a part of the requisite foliage. In the interior, whore
large tracts of prairie are found, the
importance of this matter oan scarcely be overestimated. Wo huvo
several timet suggested that some of
our enterprising fanners should test
the ' qualities nnd. adaptability of
various kinds of trees in this country. i.Thtre are a large number of
valuable kinds which Nourish in the
east, and which, it is generally be-
lieved, would also flourish here. In
eastern Canac|a they-have the walnut, the butternut, the hickory nut,
and others... Then trees are not
only valuable for their fruit, but in
twenty or thirty, years they would
become exceedingly valuable for
timber. Wo have practically no
hardwood on this coast, and for,
many purpose* it has to be imported
at great expento. i But altogether
apart from tree-planting, the establishment of erbor day might produce
excellent remits. Men now-a diys,
snd npecially in this country, have
become auMwitic machines. They
work from early morning until lato
at night with intermission enough
to swallow 'their meat); and when
the dey'e duties arc ended, they nre
roadyipr sleep. Tlie cases' are es-
eepti«MM|l:Avhiire this constant drudgery to* neeetsary. A holiday once

both health and happiness, aud llrey

"Where docs mustard come from?" replied
a h Imlesit'e spice dealer to 'a reporter's in*
i-iiity. "Most everywhere. It is of two
varieties. One is white and the other* is
lilnck. The lirst is called English and the
oilier mns(;UL'iiiJes under, a score of other
tit us. The English is full of Hour, lacks
pungency and is seldom used alone.- The
other kind contains a large amount of oil,
said to average twenty-five to thirty per cent.
The?best variety comes from Italy and is
known as Trieste.---  '
There Wo many varieties of this kind
grown in California of every shade and
quality, also in other States. That known as
Kentucky is very pungent." ,,_
"Do farmers generally raise It?" *""'
"If they don't it it their own fault.   They
con.   It requires little or no cultivation, but
most Of it Is not worth handling," m
"How is.it prepared?" '"*
"Usually by eomprcsBfng the seed to extract the oil, because the need is much, more
easily worked when the oil is out, mid be**'
cause thero Is now a ready market for tlie
oil as Hiilail oil. it being in many respects
equal to (he olive oil. To extract the oil
requires very powerful hydraulic prcssiire,
mui a suitalife press would cost from
$1,500 to _i,tm. Large dealers id tlioprjnci-
. pal cities operate in the seed or crude stock
and press it and supply the trade with what
is known as mustard cake, formed by the
process of extracting the-oil, and which
contain* everything except the oil—the same
precisely as linseed cake. After this the
pressed freed is separated from tho bran to
extract tbe flour. Pure mustard cannot be
ground in mills, and unless it is very much
. adulterated it cannot be ground at all, on
account of the oil retained in the cake. The
usual process therefore, is to take say 100
. pounds and'put a quantity of the broken
cake in a pot or mortar and pound and sift
it so ns to ex tract .about, iiity per oent. The
machinery used ior. pounding, the mustard is
a simple contrivance, culled souietihics 'ft
stamp mill', ''being'a battery of pounders
ranging in i.umber from two up to sixteen.
The proem is slow,, but very simple. After'
passing iluOugh the pounders tho mustard
cake—now. reduced to the consistency,of soft
middlings—is transferred to u series of
I sieves, ti.e fine falling into a receptacle be-
• low. This bolted Hour of mu&tanl is strictly

nteiibure-i were taken to ascertain the cause
i of ii it .trouble. It was finally located in ihe:
Mlouf of the creamery building, -Although
l Ui.mil care had been taken to keep it cieim

I under similar circumstances like trouble
linay be expected in any creamiuy or dairy

It is evident that wood Is not a.suitablo

Caterers to Cat*. ^J--
Kobert P. Porter says r There are in Ion-
on at least 3,000 men and womcn«who earn
pry comfortable livings as caterers to cats,

ie West End, does not flourish in the
rcidthy neighborhoods,- where the cats are
ften fed with dainty scraps from tbe table.

ciiigs closely packed in single rooms in

-Our cats get no dainties. The old man or

A vast majority therefore, of tho half
nlllou or more of London cats have to livo

HONITON LACE.
Whero and, now Queen. Vletorla'S Wed-
Jj   ding Dress-Was Made. ,'
Honiton lace is said to havo been first
introduced by tho Flemish, who took
refuge in England to escape the persecutions of the Duke of Alva. Many Flemish names are still to be found in the neighborhood of Honiton—namely, Stockor,
Murch, Maynard, Trump, ete.
In 1660 thore was such a demand for It
that France thought It necessary to issue
aroyal ordinance providing that a mark
should bo affixed to Imported Knglish
thread lace.
Two great fires at Honiton in 1756 and
1767 gave the first great check to its pro*
duction. Queen Adelaide tried to revive
It after 30 years of severe depression by
ordering a skirt made of sprigs, copies of
natural flowers, commencing with the
initials of her name, for a very debased
and hideous sot of patterns had come in.
This does not seem to have produced a
great revival of the'trade, and when
Queen Victoria required hor wedding lace
it was found difficult to. provide the
workers; but eventually a dress worth
$5,000 was mado at the small fishing village of Beer. -
The English royal family have been tho
most constant patrons of Honiton lace,
and have done immense good In keeping
the trade alive.
A Tramp's Bustle*
A tramp called at a residence the other

clothes were very much the worse for

economically nsed in preparing his toilet.
The lady of the houae fixed him up a
lunch' Ui a paper and handed it to him at
the door. He repaired to a grassy seat i n
the yard and unfolded a bundle which he
had witii him, and stowed away in said
bundle was a variety of victuals. He assorted the viands and began to store them
away in tbe back lining ot his coat, biscuit, potatoes, cake, etc.! until It looked
as If he had on a bustle.
He hud prepared himself for a long

, ■.; Th» World's Steam Power*
The Bureau of Statistics in Berlin has
recently issued some curious Information
with regard to tho number of steam engines lu use tn the chief countries of the
world and the amount of motive force
which they represent.. The United States
stand flrst with a total bone power of
7,500,000; next come* Great Britain with
(SOO.OOO less; Germany has 4,500,000; France
8,600,000, and Austria 1,500,000. In these
figures the motive power ot the locomotives, which number 105,000 throughout
the world, Is not Included. Tbey represent
collectively a total of 8,000,000 horse power,
Summarizing these figures, and remembering tbat a steum horse power Is equal
to the power of three actual horses, and
that th$ strength of a living horse Is equal
to that ot seven men, we arrivo at the fol
lowing result: the steam engines of tho

A lliinilHome Offer.
Mr. Hendry, president of the Royal
City Mills, has generously offered the
city council sufficient slabs and sawdust to build up portions of several
streets in the swamp, extensions to
which are badly needed. . The mills
will deliver the material at the spots
required, free of cost, and tho only expense the oity will be pat to, ia tke payment of labor to make the road. It is
hardly necessary to add the council
lost no time in accepting this handsome offer, and the necessary extensions of several streets will be proceeded with immediately.

The inquest on the remains of the
late Ct^t. Sinclair was held at Hastings yesterday afternoon. The evidence was not important, but it went
to,show that there could be no doubt
as to the identity of the remains. Dr.
McG uigan, • i V ancouver,' conducted the
inquest, and Dr. Laugis made a post
mortem examination which, however,
proved nothing. The jury brought in
a verdict to the effect thu tho deceased
came to his death in the burned shanty, but thore was no evidence to show
whether the cause was accidental or
otherwise. The jury paid Mr. Moresby a well-deserved compliment for
efforts he mado towards solving the
mystery in connection with Sinclair's
death.

At the annual meeting of this association, hold in Toronto on the 20th
March, the annual report showed very
satisfactory progress. Tho policies in
force at the close of tho year represented tho large sum of 915,704,31)7,
an inorease of over a million dollan
during the year. The assets have also
increased from $2,032,710 to §2,202,-
300. Death claims during the year
were unusually heavy, amounting to
9124,300, but hot withstand ing " this
lorge payment, in addition to maiuml
endowments, sutretidcrud policies, btc.,
aggregating 432,271, the company was
able to add $280,033 to its reserve nnd
carry a largo sum to surplus account.
From auch a showing as this, oue must

agent, retur iwl to-day from an official
visit to tho inferior. He reports business matters throughout the interior
as inclined to bu dull, but a very hopeful feeling exists in all circles, In
Kamloops the confidence in the coal
discovery still is strong, and the two
seams that are now being worked give
abundant promise of rich returns. In
Nicola everyone is satisfied that the
gold claims there will pan out well
when active operations are commenced.
Mr. Higginson says ho never saw the

Last night there was assembled, in
Hart's Opera House, about the largest
audience it ever contained, to witness
the long looked for Juvenile Opera
Company in "Olivette," and in every
respect this youthful company sustained the reputation that lias heralded it,
and kept the audionce in delight from
beginning to -end. The greatest aptitude and most charming naivete were
displayed in all tbe parts, which probably could not be acted with greater
fitness by the most talented ndult
actors. Miss Camille Cleveland as
Olivette had a charming sole to play
and played it in a most charming manner. Miss Binma Berg, who has a
voice of much volume and richness,
acted the "Countess" with great huc-
eeas. The sailors' hornpipe, bv very
"Little Stotia May" gave immense
satisfaction, ns also the, inimitable
comic doling of Toddy Gamble as
Cotjuelicot. The -Juveniles produce
Olivette to-morrow night at Herring's

A FINE ESTABLISHMENT.
The (Unrtltn of Eden—Strawberries hy
the Ton, and Maspherrles by the Acre,
aad elemej Oram bj the Pailful.
What is Going on In the lab*
arbs of Oar City.
Possibly few of our readers are
aware that in the suburbs of Westminster, within ten minutes walk of
tho postollice, may be seen ono of the
finest gardens in British Columbia, or,
perhaps, in Canada. This garden is
tho property of Mr. Thomas Cunningham, and comprises nearly five nores
of ground fronting on Polham street.
Two or threo years ago Mr. Cunningham found this property rpugh and
uneven, partly covered with natural
trees, and partly disfigured by unsym-
metrical stumps. He put a large gang
of men on it, cut down the trees,
grubbed out the stumps, gathered up
the stones, levelled down the knolls,
and had it dug up and heavily manured. Tho outlay in preparation was
large, but any person who looks at tho
splendid property now must boo that
it wus capital well invested. In all
Mr. Cunningham spent upwards nf
$10,000 on tho lot, and to-day it presents a sight such as' can be seen no-
whore else in the province. Of the
five acres, two are in strawberries.
These are planted in long rows, and
are of several different varieties,
among which are the Sharplcss, Vick's
Best, Wilson's Albany, Jumbo, Triumph de Gand, Jucunda, and Monarch of the West. There are about
40,000 plants in all, and it is estimated
that they will yield this year about
SIX TONS OF STRAWBEBIUBH.
The plants show tho effects of high
culture.. The leaves are rich and luxuriant, and there is an immense show
of fruit' When these berries nre ripe,
the work of gathering them will givo
employment to a considerable number
of plokers, nnd the luscious fruit will
go to make happy the lives of many of
our citizens. But Mr. Cunningham
haB a great mnny things besides strawberries in his garden. Here we find
an aero and a half Bet out with raspberries— Cuthberts, Grcigs, Hansells,
Red AntwcrpB, and Shaffers. These
bushes are also in long rows, and they
present a vigorous growth, and will
this yenr yield and enormouB crop. In
blackberries there is three-quarters of
an acre, embracing the best varieties,
Lawton, Kittntiney, Wilson's Early,
and Taylor. Most of the blackberry
bushes are too young to show much
fruit, but nbout 100 of them will produce largely thia yenr. There nre
about 500 gooaoberry bushes—Down-
ings, Champion, and Champion of
Oregon, and although nenrly all planted last year, they w\\\ produce a very
fair crop. In currants thero aro Fay's
Prolific, Red Cherry, White Grape,
Victoria, White and Rod Dutch, in
all about 400 bushes, and many of
them nro loaded down with fruit. Besides these there nre
TUBUS AND  VINES.
adding still further variety to the product. About 100 grape vines aro now
beginning to bear. Thero aro 110
cherry trees, 100 plum and prune
trees, 80 pear trees, besides apples, ap-
pricots, crahupples, etc., in all about
450 trees. Quite a number of these
are now beginning to bear. In about
tivo years this splendid garden and
orchard will produce an immense quantity of fruit, largo and snnll, and will
become a source of very great profit to
its. enterprising .owner. But Mr.
Cunningham's enterprise has reached
beyond gardening. On the sumo lot
he has a well-appointed dairying establishment from which rich milk,
cream and butter nro supplied to the
citixons. Here there nro 21 cows, of
which 1G ure high .grade Jerseys, so
widely noted for the richness of their
milk and tho large quantity of butter
they produce. Some of theso cows uro
beauties, and ouo of them has n record
of 17 lbs. 6 oz. of butter per week—
equal to over $5. There are also two
thoroughbred Jersey bulls on the establishment. One of these ia Gov.
Moody, bred by the governor of Oregon, and claimed to be the finest animal of the kind in British Columbia.
The other is Chcmn Prince, a year old.
This splendid animal was bred by Mr.
D. S. Loomy, of Oregon, whose herd
took first prize at the Oregon state
fair.   There are also four calves almost

Mr. Cunningham, who is among the
early pioneers of this province, and
one of tho early settlers in this eity,
deserves great praise for the enterprise he has displayed in connection
with this establish ment, and wc hope
aud believe his enterprise will meet
with the reward it deserves. At Crescent Farm, near Agassi/ station, on
the C. V. It, Mr. Cunningham is nlso
making preparations to establish a
fruit aud stoek farm. This farm,
which he owns, consists of 200 acres,
well adapted for fruit culture. Horo
he proposes to send hU young stock,
nud he will urndunlly increiiso his herd,
keeping only the best -sorts. Thero is
scarcely any limit to tho market for
choice fruit and well bred stock raised
in this district, as we havo splendid
facilities for shipping in all directions,
east, west nr southland the two industries can be carried on conjointly
with great economy nnd sneces*).
