SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Procuebs ok Dental Cauies.—
Russian observations have shown
that teeth decay in a quite regular
ordor, the lower third molar being
first attacked, then the upper, then
the lower fourth molar, and so
on, the lower incisors and canine
teeth being the hist ail'ected. Upper teeth as a rule are more durable
than lower, right than left, those of
dark persons than those of blondes,
those of short persons than those of
the tall.
PnoTooitAPmc Meteorology.—
M. Jansen, the French physicist,
considers the.camera a valuable addition to the instruments of the
meteorologist. He has exhibited to
the Academy of Sciences some line
pictures illustrating the characteristics of mountain clouds at the different hours of the dny. Tho "sea
of down" of early morning undergoes interesting changes through the
action of air-currents set in motion
by the sun.
The Oyster in France.—While
oyster-culture is dclining in Great
Britain, it is being remai'kablydeve-
loped in France. In 1857 the Bay
Arcachon had twenty oyster-beds;
in 1865 the number was 297, with
an annual production of 10,000,000
oysters; and thero are now 15,000
acres of beds, with a yearly yield of
300,000,000 oysters. In a decade
the product of Anray has increased
from 7,000,000 to 70,000,000
oysters per annum.
Mountain-Makino. — A new
theory the information of mountains
has beon offered by Mr. T. Mellard
Reade, tho well-known English
geologist. He supposes that the
periods of great sedimentary deposit tlfst. have preceded the birth
of every largo mountain range have
been followed by a great, elevation
of temperature, producing expansions of the strata, with consequent
forcing up of ridges. Laboratory experiments with the various
rocks show that heating would give
such results.
Diamond-Bearino Meteors.—
Carbon has now been yielded by
meteorites in three stages of development. TJncrystallized graphite
has long been known as a constituent of meteoric irons and stones,
and graphite orystals were recently
found in a meteoric iron from Western Australia, while the report hns
just been mnde that small diamond
corpuscles have been obtained from
a meteoric stone which fell in Russia in 1886. It is suggested that
these discoveries may point out the
road to the artificial production of
the diamond.
Leaks in Farmers' Purses.—
Among the sources of preventable
loss to British agriculturists. Prof.
W. Freame mentions the following:
The imperfect working of the soil,
which is a very common cause of
failure; the use of bad seeds, or
those mixed with seeds of weeds
and parasites; the encouragement of
weeds; which not only rob the soil
but nourish insect pests that may
be awaiting the more valuable
plants; the deterioration of grasslands, which embrace three-sevenths
of the urea of the British Islos, and
of nature of whose herbage ninoty-
nine out of a hundred farmers are
utterly ignorant: the insect and
fungi pests, whose maintenance is
often a severe drain; the diseases of
live-stock, somo of which may be
prevented or greatly redncod; and
injudicious expenditure. The need
of the British farmer, Prof. Freame
concludes, is sound technical instruction in agriculture, whereby his loss
es would bo greatly lessened and his
gains correspondingly augmented.
Co-operation ok the Senses.—
Some curious experiments have led
Dr. Urbanschitsch of Vienna, to
the conclusion that the exciting of
one sense-organ increases the acutc-
ness of the others, tho different sensations seeming to re-enforce one
another. Hearing a sound will
bring out tho just indistinguishable
color of a distant disc. Tho ticking of a watch is heard more plainly
with open than closed eyes, the fact
that we listen to musio or speaking
with the eyes closed being due to
other reasons. The sight of red und
green increases perceptions of sound;
that of green and red weakens
them. These colors affect sensations of smell, taste, and touch iu
like manner. Touch and temperature act reciprocally. Whon tlio
skin is tickled and plunged into
warm water, the tickling ceases;
when into cold, the tickling brings
out the feeling of cold. Theso ob
servntions offer an explanation of
the singular associations between
colors and sounds that somo individuals retain.

CHURCHILL AND GENRAI, IONATIEFF.
St. Petersburg, Jan, 16.—Lord
Randolph Churchill visited General
Ignatieff and said he was happy to
make the acquaintance of a statesman

were no political parties in Russia, but
that ho represented the national sentiment.
IT LOOKS SUSPICIOUS.
Berlin, Jan. 10.— Several Italian
staff officers aro here consulting with

tho event of war.
TUB   HARRISON   GOVERNMENT RESIGNS.
Winnipeg, Man., Jan. 16.—The
announcement of Premier Harrison's
resignation was a surprise to the liberals but they took it with good grace.
Tho ministers will formally resign today and Mr. Greenway will commence
the formation of a new cabinet; bnt
whether he will be successful in selecting a strongor ticket than that of
tho lato government is a matter of
doubt. Atmost Groenway can only
count 18 votes to the conservatives 16,
and unless further defections occur
from tho ranks of the latter a general
desortion is probable. When Green-
way announces his cabinet, legislature
will adjourn for a few weeks in order
to give tho new ministers a chance of
appealing to thoir constituents. Green-
way as premier, Martin as attorney-
general, Pendorgast as provincial seoretary. and Jones as provincial treasurer, is lookod upon aa the strongest
cabinet tho liberals can form. All are
members of the legislature except
Jones, who is mayor of Winnipeg.
A NEW PHASE IN THE STRIKE.
Philadelphia, Jan. 10.—For several
days there has been under consideration, by tho loading men in the order of
the Knights of Labor, the advisability of
bringing suit by commonwealth,through
the Attorney General, against the Phlfa*
delphiaand Heading Railroad and the
Cual and Iron Company, to compel them
to do certain things which tt is alleged
they are obliged to do undor the charter
and various privetleges granted by the
state. One oharge is that the.. Com-
panics, by refusing to settle with the men,
arc "cornering" coal and other, necessaries for the purpose of enhancing thoir
rallies, and extorting oxhorbitant prices
from the community.

W+JOlJf[ -"iV;
.., ,,.*< 'nrn'ir.ff v 'rtr-'HtV pt. Sails British Columbian
Hcaday K.tnlni. Jan. Id, isss.
It wis stilted on Saturday that,
in the opinion of some persons, the
tire under the Koyal Oity Planing
Mills dry-house was the result of
Spontaneous combustion among the
sawdust that had been lying there
for many years. We are inclined
to think this opinion is merely a
guess, and that it will be found
without foundation. But if it should,
unfortunately, be found correct, the
situation of that part of the city
known as the "swamp" is anything
but reassuring. A large part of it
has boen filled up to a depth of
several feet with sawdust and refuse from the mill, and if this waste
material is subject to spontaneous
combustion, it will continue to be a
constant source of danger. Long
ago we took occasion to question
the propriety of making streets and
lots with sawdust. Wo are afraid
in the end it will be found to be a
case of false economy. When that
part of the city comes to be thickly
settled it is possible the gases coming from this mass of decaying matter will become a standing menace
to the health of the city. This is a
very serious question, and ought to
be well considered beforo too late.
The Victoria Times says: "A
pleasing feature of the mayoralty
contest was the good temper that
characterized bptli sides in polling
their votes. Nothing of an unpleasant nature occurred, and although the candidates worked vigorously all day long, and were assisted by their friends, the proceedings during the polling and subsequently when the result was known,
were unmarked by any act or ex
prenion that could give offense to
either party." The same observation applies to the municipal contest in this city. Although it was
fought out in a most spirited way
thoughout, so far as we have heard
there was no unpleasantness on
either side. This is a matter for
congratulation. We have seen contents elsewhere in which a very
different spirit was manifested. In
older lands it is not uncommon to
find such bitterness developed during election times as will cling to
individuals throughout a lifetime.
This is especially the case where
. party feelings run high. But such
a spirit is exceedingly to bo regretted, and we are very glad to know
that it does not prevail in this
country to anything like the samo
extent as elsewhere. Of late years
some of our political elections in
British Columbia, however, have
been disfigured by words and acts
which we hope may not bo repeated. And we are not sure that our
very excellent cotemporary of tho
Kmesisnotone of the agencies which
f must be held responsible for this
' p^tiwlng evil. We have seen in our
cotemporary, during a political contest, expressions which we are sure
he would not think of employing
under other circumstances. Thore
is no reason why people should become abusive and boisterous during
an election, and say things that are
mean and ungentlemanly and untrue. It is to be hoped the harmonious methods which prevailed
during the municipal contest in this
oity and Victoria last Thursday
may have the effect of inducing politicians to discard forever the objectionable methods which some
have been thoughtlessly seeking to
introduce.
It is pretty generally believed
that the Hon. Theodore Davie is
one of the members of the provincial legislature to whom the opposition has been looking with much
expectancy, Although Mr. Davie
has always been a consistent supporter of the present government,
yet for some reason the opposition
has been clinging to the hope that
be might be induced to join it some
day and give his voto for a change
of administration. We are inclined
to think that Mr. Davie, who is
fond of a joke, never put himself
Wt of the way to destroy this impression, and thut ho thoroughly
enjoyed the situation. This explains the surprise of the party
when it became known that Mr.
Davie had accepted a place in the
oabinet, and that he was actually
willing to do so without salary from
the government. How large a superstructure had been erected upon
this foundation by the opposition
we have no means of knowing. We
shall not be surprised if it is discovered that Mr. Davie's was one
of the -14 names said to be under
the thumb of the editor of tho opposition organ in this city, pledged
to vote against the government as
•Don as the house meets. It is no
wonder, therefore, that the organ
experienced a feeling of genuine
disgust and surprise at the announcement of the ohanges made in the
oabinet. And, ex uno, disce omnesl

I ROBSON, Manager. A JOYFUL DAY.
"Rob!"    -
It' was a pretty young lady who sprang
through ths open door 0( Tlie tansies,
ind joined her mint, Mias Doris DiMrtfei
apon the green iriwn—though it might
ituve been o.p utoil that a boy would
iirnrrver the summons. No, Dr. Robert
Harford had given his daughter his own
mime us nearly iii ho could, and trailed
her Roberta, a title soon shortened to
"Kob" by loving lips.
Sire wasa ch.irrriinggirl, with the bloom
nnd spontnnl'ousuesd of sixteen, and almost snatched tli.r letter from her aunts
band in her exu.ution.' -   - '
"It's come! 1 tuuught she never would
write. 'Oh, Aunt Uoris, is ttiamrhd An-
nerly coming to ourvpatty ?'--:-'   '-■ '■•'"
Miss Deano s-.uilingly bowed assent,
nnd Kob quickly devoured tbe lett.r.
"Yes," she cried joyously. "Oil, Aunt
Doris, Bhe is so beautiful, and sweet, and
gracious—n perfect princess! And to
think of her railing here to this unpretentious place,' When she is welcome
everywhere' among' h6r wide circle of
friends."
"it will be very plcassLt," replied Aunt
Doris. -    -tan ■■ ■■■■■■■■
With n cry of delight tho young girl
sprang away to put lresh touches to the
guest's 'chamber, to lilt' the window-Bills
with flowers, to take counsel witii old
Sally as to cerUin dainty dishes to be
prepared for the tablo. -■■'■'-■
Slio was a warm-hearted ambitious
creature, craving much in lifo thut had
hitherto-been denied her, especially
congenial conip.iftlijnsliip, and Jildnchs
Annerley was her ideal of all that was
beautiful. ' '■■'■'■ '
But all that she bad dreamed of ber
did not equal Blanche Annerley's beauty
when Bhe came. There was a dignity, a
witness, a harmony about ber impossible
to describe     -,;»-.. r
Rob's evident worship she received
with a stnile: of indulgence, and she
seemed to ttml pleasure in her little
cousin's compan onsuip. ■ *
Thri pretty cottage gig, which wns Itob'8
solo luxury, took ihem about tire pleasant
neighborhood, along winding roads, under
mellow skies, past brown irirrn-houses,
bright with crimson woodbine, over
breezy uplands, dotted with cuttle, and
along the plum I lako.
The slmplic.ty and peaco soomed to
suit the beaut i.ii iierres-i strangely.
"And you uro r.ally not bored, Cousin
Blanche V" asked Hob sweetly one duy.
"NoT dear."
r "Korlville is such a dull little place!"
"Isit?" slid Blanche. "Alter four
years abroad, I am not pining for novelty,
Hob," ' °     "	
"Pcrhapi not. Wttt you very happy
•broad fr   '
Tbe question seemed to sink Uko a
stone into a bottomless lake. The shadow
of some groat emotion passed over Blanche
Annerley's mobile face.
"I was very happy," she uid.
"I never knew uut onetfefson who had
been abroad;'"said RdB. "ltwas Mr.
Paul Ellory, one of onr neighbors,
Blanche. What is the matter?-What
did you see?   Was It a tjnake'7"
"No," said Blanche Annerley, recovering her bttath. "It wfcbnly the brown
root ot .'* tun* .1 .wan a little startled:
Did yon say the gentleman wis oue of
your neighbors?"
"Yes. Mr. Ellery came home last
spring. The Ellerys are musical people,
and Paul is the eldest son. He Went
abroad for instruction. It is a pretty
place. They havo a grand piano there.
1 liko to visit there once iii a while.
Mrs. Helen Ellery ii an old friend of
Aunt Doris'." •'•> ' ■'
Hob's beautiful cousin made no reply.
Only the soft bloom did not return lo her
face during the remainder of the drive,
and at dinner she excused herself on plea
ui n headache.
But no one under the roof ot Pansy
Cottage suspected the truth—that the
existence! of the'man for whom Blanche
Annerley's heart was breaking had that
day been rovealed"to'her?"-* •■■   "*r-'
But tbat evening she followed the line
of Rob's forefinger closely when the latter pointed out the Elleiy- mansion,
rising grey and stately among the oaks
and pines, and a soft light came Into her
eyea. ' ■"•"■ ■■;—-•■«-, t   "   •-■■■

The redaud white chased themselves
over Blanche's face, but she wu silent.

Extract from tho London Telegraph:
"It is a uusing what absurd statements
our contemporaries have madh with regard to llullalo Bill. This distjinguishuil
personage, we learn from u trustworthy
source, was ut ono time n planter id
Cleveland, Ohio, where during runny
years he raised banana.- and a peculiar
sort of fruit ■width the Americans call
squash. After selling out his 'fur.'u in
tJlovelanrl, he went further enst to st,
'Louis, where he began tlie Rortrewli.it
dangerous litr riness of hear trapping. His
fi st exploit of any moment was hh fight
witii General Custer, whom h • in rlaily
wounded. Ue was, after this, in the
wholesale jewelry busines with lion.
Jesse .lames, governor of Missouri. But
he never gave" promise of greatness until
after lie went into tlie war between Kentucky and Mexico.   lie commanded the
right wing of the Kentuckians and received Santa Anna's sword at Sbiloh. A
detailed history of his life might make nn
interesting book, especially his adventures
among the Missourians."
Too Muoh Scandal.
In a littlo village in Now York the
minister is middle-aged, good-natured,
and a favorite. Jt was his custom every
Sunday to give an estimable lady
parishioner a seat in the familv carriage,*
so tlrat she would not have io "walk half
a mile to tire church. One Siindav tin)
dominie's carriage drew lip in front of
the lady's rlnor. She wns waiting, and
hustled down preparer! to get in, declining the pastor's proffered aid. Suddenly
sho noticed thut he was alone.
"Whore is your wife?" she asked
abruptly.
"She is not well enough to go to church
to-rlny," was the reply.
"Where is your daughter?" wu the
lady's next query.
"Slier stayed at homo to tako care of
her mother," was the answer.
An instant of hesitation followed.
Then Ihe lady turned her hack upon her
pastor, saying,—
"I guess I won't go to church with
you; - there is so muoh scandal nowadays."
She is ninety years of ago I

Little Ethel had a bachelor uncle and
she had noticed that when he wanted to
be'1 very emphatic he used a' certain
monosyllabic word of four letters. Not
long ago Ethel wu afflicted with quite a
severe pain under her little' apron, the
result of too free an indulgence in the
toothsome cucumber. When Uncle Jack
came home at supper time he was informed of the grievous plight of his littlo
favorite, and hastened to her comfort.
""Weil, Ethel, my dear," he bald, advancing to the sofa, "bow do you feel
now?"
"Pretty d—n miserable, thank you,
Uncle Jack," she replied, with an air of
havidg said quite the proper thing under
thi drctlmstances.—Chicago Irilmne.

FACTS:—
The Security offered to oolloy holders is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, but the
well*establlflbed lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every Item of Income and how expen-
Its poBitlonlsascertained annually from
a detailed valuation ln which every Item
of liability Is Included,
Its progress has been unexampled In
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are indisputable after three
years, and nonforfeitable after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon an equitable oasis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
tbe uniform bonus plan of distribution.

It is rumored a couple of protests
will be entered against the civic elections in St. George's and St. Andrew's
wards. Tho exact grounds on which
the protests will be entered have not
come to light yet.
When the eyes become weak or the
lids inflamed and sore, a disordered
system or a scrofulous condition of the
blood is indicated, for which Ayer's SarsapariUa is the best remedy. It invigorates and vitalizes the blood and expels
all humors.

Eruption.
It seems to be almost certain the interior of Mount Baker is in a disturbed state and that there has been a volcano
there in days gone by. Last evening,
about 7 o'clock, peoplo living on tho
hill saw sparks of fire being thrown
into tho air just above Mount Baker.
Tho eruption only lasted a few minutes but Was quite perceptible during

A I'aluful Accident.
On Saturday afternoon, during tho
firo at tho Royal City Planing Mills,
Councillor Reid met with an accident
that will confine him to the house for
a few duys. He was assisting to move

A Hiiunre Figlit.
Messrs. Carmichael and Robertson
have withdrawn thoir candidature for
the seat in tho local legislature made
vacant by the resignation of Mr. Prior,
and Mr. R. T. Williams becomes tho

therefore, to bo n square fight, Mr.
Duck running as a supporter of the

oppositionist. Mr. Duck, it is said,
has already been defeated thrice, aud
his opponent has twice suffered tlio
same misfortune.

water was highly charged with gases
and on picking the syphon up Mr.
Julian gave it a shake which caused
tho vessel to explode, scattering the
glass in every direction. One poico
of tho Hying glass struck Mr. -Julian
on the left eye cutting tho lid right
across, but not injuring tho ball, and
inflicting a very dangerous wound on
the eyebrow. Dr. Cooper was sont
for and dressed the wound and tho
patient iB now doing well.

havo IobI confidence. Accordingly, on
the day mentioned, about 100 of thorn

him a prisoner while they helped themselves t-i the contents of his store.
This proceeding was promptly interrupted by Officer Kirkup, of tho provincial police, who shut the contractor
up in the court house for safe keeping

Tlie Crofters.
During an interview in Toronto,
being asked about tho condition of the
Crofters, Mr. Chamberlain replied:
"I seo since I havo beon here a statement to iho effect that Mr. Morrison
is coming from Stornway, tho capital
of tho Lewsis, to inquire into the cli
mate and soil uf British Columbia and
the Northwest Territories, along tho
lino of tho C. P. R., with a view to
founding a crofter colony. Ho is a
thoroughly practical and sensible man,
who speaks fiaclic well, and has tho
confidence of the crofters, who will
likely net on his recommendation. Lew-
sis Island, tn an outsider, looks almost
impossible of cultivation. Thero are
fisheries established on the island, but
their productiveness has of lato years
materially declined. At presont tho
soil is absolutely unable to support tho
population, even if tho people were
allowed to cultivato the whole land
area of the island. A largo portion of
it is devoted to.sheep farms nnd deer
forests. There is a strong feeling
among the Islanders that these deer
parks and forests should be divided up
amongst the inhabitants for agricultural purposes. They nro a very fine
raco of mon, averaging 6ft lOin. in
height, handsome, pleasant-looking
fellows. Thoy form at tho present

London, Jan. 14.—Increasing interest is taken in ministerial circles in
the movements of Lnrd Randolph
Churchill, and a general impression
exists that they will hnvo sensational,
if not particularly useful, results.
Lord Randolph i3 reported to havo
expressed in very strong terms before
leaving England his own conviction
that tho war rumors were mere ficttonB
invented in Berlin partly for financial
purposes and partly to help the Gorman chancellor in some neat move in
the diplomatic game. What Lord
Randolph's views may have been as to
the nature of this move ib a matter of
surmise. Rut it is certain that, before leaving for tho continent, he regarded tho Bupposod policy nf Germany
with suspicion, and even with disapprobation. Unlesa the statesmen of
St. Petersburg have lost their old dexterity, he is not likely to learn anything in his intercourse with them
calculated to change the bont of his
sympathies, To put the matter briefly, there ia a 3trong apprehension
among official conservatives who know
the curious mental fluctuations to
which the ex-chancellor of tho exchequer, is liable, that he may como back
with not only pro-Russian views as to
tho situation, but with a disposition tu
give them utterance at a timo that
would virtually inconvenience tho
government. If the general suspicion
that Lord Salisbury's foreign policy
has been tending of lato in tho direction of a definite co-operation with the
central European powers be correct,
and Lord Rnndolph should satisfy himself on this point, he will havo a tempting op* orluuity when he returns of
limiting n -rensatiou either by a speech
in publio or by intervening in thn discussion on our foreign policy which is
expected to take place on the addro-'s.
At all events, thore ia nn Unmistakable
apprehension thnt he will give his
old friends a bad quarter of an hour
somehow.
1,0111) SALISBURY   AT MVBIU'OuI,.
LorniON, Jan. 14.—Lord Salisbury's
announcements respecting foreign nf-
f-iirs at Liverpool were cautiously reassuring, but liq confined himself to
common places, The gist of his remarks was that thu foreign office knew
of no special ground for the alarm
which is felt just now, but war may
como at nny time, and that it will como
suddenly when it does como. The
moral which may bo drawn from this
is that England must be ready for any
emergoncy. But Lord Salisbury is not
sufficiently explicit. It has been widely stated during thu last few weeks
that tho government has committed
England to tho support of the triple
alliance, if that is true, then every
event ou iho continent has a vital interest for England, fur a war which
involves Germany nnd Austria may also involve the English fleet ou tho
Mediterranean. The mero rumor of
such a policy is alarming. It implies
a departure from the rule which prevents English statesmen from interfering in foreign affairs except such us
immediately concern the interests of
England, or a dependency of England.
It may he quite untrue, but it has remained long uncontradicted, and Iho
premier said nothing ou Thursday at
tho Liverpool banquet Upon tho part
which England is now playing in
foreign politics. When parliament reassembles this will be among ono (if
tho first questions forced upon tho
government,
Thero la' nothing equal to Mother
■Graves' Worm Exterminator for destroying worms. No article of its kind lias
given such satisfaction.
Police Court.
Edward Curran Charged with Committing a Beach ol the Bunday Observance By-Law.
Before W. D. Ferris, J. P.
Mr. Atkinson in addressing His
Honor said he would not enter into a
resume of the evidence adduced in
this case, but he would bo satisfied if
the decision went against the city so
that the caso might be carried to
the Supreme Court forthwith
where a decision might be given which
would settle the validity of the Sunday
Observance By-law for all time.
Mr. McColl Baid ho considered his
learned friend hnd taken a very wise
course, as it would be better that the
cuso go before the Supremo Cuurt
without being prejudged. Tho counsel thon went over a number of ob-
jections to tho validity of tho by-law
which attacked tho right of the govornment to grant tho by-law and tho right
uf tho municipality to pass it. He
would consider it the wisost course to
let the case go over to' the Supreme
Court.
His Honor thanked tho learned
counsel for enlightening him on so
many points connected with the caso.
He felt as they did that it would be
better to let it go before tho Supreme
Court without being prejudged.
Ruled accordingly.
