The Benwell Murder.
Niagara Falls, Ont., Marcli 18.—The
Benwell murder case was resumed today. Tbe court room was packed with
people. Soon after court opened in the
town hall, Mrs. Burchell was arraigned.
The magistrate announced that she was
charged with being accessory to tho
murder and he was ready to hear any
evidence. Tho detectives had none to
offer, and the magistrate remanded her
to the same custody she had been in
since her arrest. Burchell waB then
brought up. He looked unconcerned
aud smiled at the crowd which stared at
him. Several witnesses were sworn,
and most of the'evidence was merely a
resume of that taken at the coroner's
inquest.
New evidence was introduced, when
George Phemster, telegraph manager
at Niagara Falls, produced three telegrams, one of which was sent from Niagara Falls on February 27, addressed
to "Polly, Stafford house, Buffalo," and
said, "Arrive at Buffalo at 8 o'clock.
Must remain there night." Signed
"Bastelle." Phemister could not identify the sender and could not say if it
was Burchell. In this message tne supposed Burchell's name was misspelled
by the operator or himself knowingly.
Another telegram from Buffalo February
27, directed to Burchell and signed Stafford, said "telegram and letter Bent yesterday to Fifth Avenue hotel, New
York." Tho third telegram waB from
New York, March 1, and evidently from
Polly, though not signed. "Benwell
not here," was all it said. That closed
the testimony.
When asked if he had anything to say.
Burchell, after consulting'with his lawyer, said: "I have nothing to say at this
particular time." Magistrate Hill then
held him for trial in October at Wood
stock.       -___-^^____

In his report to the Government on
the fisheries protection service for the
season of 1880, Commander Gordon, of
the Government steamer Acadia, says
that only one American vessel was
seized last year and she was released on
payment of a fine. American vessels
generally took out licenses under the
modus vivendi. The mackerel fishery
appears to be on tbe decline. The quantity caught by the United States vessels
in Canadian waters has declined from
330,000 barrels in 1886, to $40,000 barrels
in 1888, and 17,794 barrels in 1889. The
catches by Canadians aggregated 148,450
barrels iu 1885 and only 65,000 last year.
Commander Gordon urges that international regulations be adopted for the
purpose of suppressing the practice of
purse seining, and protecting the mackerel fisheries generally. He also recommends that a system of propagating lobsters by artificial means be introduced.
The Government has acceded to the
wishes of tbe members of the geological

for by the Civil Service act.

A Grand Idea.
It is now proposed to send Queen All;
gelino, daughter of old Chief Seattle,
around the world with George Francis
Train. Shu is at present living iu this
city, aud if not the fairest, is tho oldest
daughter of the city, aud the only living
representative of the famous old chief
after whom tho city is named. Tho
proposition to send the dusky maiden
around the world was first proposed yesterday aitcrnoon amongst a half dozen
citizens. They were so taken with the
scheme that tficy immediately pledged,
between them, something over $1,200 to
defray tho expenses of the trip, and today the matter will be laid before others,
and it is thought that enough money can
be raised in a few hours to warrant the
undertaking. Queen Angeline is a well-
known figure on the streets of Senttle.
Site is a typical representative of her
race, and although between 80 and 00
years of ago, is still lively enough to
walk around over tbo hills of Seattle,
which she has known so well for half a
century or more, She is short of stature,
not being over four feet and a half high,
nnd her round shoulders and bent form
make her seem soveral inches shortor
than she really is. She goes barefooted
and bareheaded the year round, and her
clothes consist of ill-fitting and ill-looking garments. Over her Bbouldcrs she
■wears a big shawl, and over her back is
often hung u rude basket, into which
she throws such trinkets as she is given
by her friends around tho city. Her
faco is brown and swarthy, ami sh<
more than tho average intelligence of
the Hi wash. Many limes she has 1-oeu
photographed, aud even painters havo
succeeded in getting good likenesses of
her, which are on exhibition in several
Btores in the city, She sneaks English

not familiar with Chinook jargon,—Post-

IRELAND'S DAY.
To-day is St. Patrick's day, and Irish
Nationalists, in whatever part of the
world found, will not fail to celebrate
the event. St. Patrick's day is not a re-
ligious festival alone, and to-night in
the Imperial Parliament English Lib'
erals equally with Irish Catholics will
do honor to the 17th of Ireland by the
wearing of the "green," thus evincing
their sympathy for that patriotism
which is perhaps the strongest characteristic of the Irishman,
Whitaker states that 160 monarchs
ruled Ireland between tbe year B. C.
1285 and the Christian era, only 15 of
whom died comfortably in their beds,
With such a fine long list of kings, all
more or loss of a bellicose nature, it Ib
strange that the national saint (unlike
St. George of England) was not only not
a warrior, but a poor enslaved boy who
tended sheep on the mountains of Antrim. At tho age of twenty, being set
free, he entered the school of Martin nt
Tours, where he remained until he was
forty, at the end of which time ho returned to Ireland, having meanwhile
been created a 'bishop by Pope CeleB<
tine. For sixty years he devoted him
self to the work. of Christianizing Ire>
land, and bis efforts appear to have met
with most extraordinary success, many
warrior chiefs and their people abjuring
heathenism for Christianity. At Tara
he encountered the Druids, and seems
to have given them rather a bad time,
and in A. D. 402 ho died nt Sabhull,
County Down, being then more than
one hundred years of age.
Although a Roman by birth, St. Pat'
rick must have been a thorough Irishman in bis affection for tho "firstgem of
" tliosea," and itisBmall wonder that
bis name is deeply venerated. If only
we look at the material results of his
zeal, there is great cause for satisfaction,
for owing to him Ireland sent missionaries to neighboring lands, and it is to
Irishmen is due the credit of raising
Glastonbury, Lindisfarne and Malmea-
bury Abbeys, as well as that of Ripson,
buildings of great architectural beauty
rnd structural skill, of which all Christianity may well feel proud.
Intense and ardent love of country
reaches the enthuiasin point in every
Irishman worthy of the name,, and
wherever Pat is found, there we maybe
Bure that Ireland is well remembered.
There is, too, another quality in the
Irishman's character, frequently lost
sight of. He has been charged with disloyalty, whereas it is the plainest fact
in tho world that many of his troubles
have arisen from his disinclination to
throw over the cause he had once espoused.
Had Irishmen studied their own interests, tbey would have thrown their loyalty to tho Stuarts to the four windB of
heaven aud shouted, like Englishmen,
for the risitig star of King William, In
Intter days they have remained stedfast-
ly loyal to the cause of their country,
despite betrayal from their leaders, and
almost unceasing coercion on the part
of their masters. It was never until
Pamell succeeded in organizing his
party that Ireland saw hope, and yet
she was ready and willing to trust O'-
Connell even in his feebler days, when
he was no longer lit to lead her. Sadlier
and Keogh were trusted until they
basely dcBerted the people who had
been so loyal to them, and both Isaac
Butt and Shaw were given the fullest
confidence of a warm-hearted and patriotic people. Of the present leader of
the Irish people, Charles Stewart Par-
nell, nothing need be said here, except
that he has proved himself the worthy
leader of a nation which has given to
tlie world the great names of Sheridan,
Burke, Grattan, Moore, and innumerable others.
To-night all Irishmen join bands to
remember the glories of tho old land beyond the Bca, and to the lips of rich and
poor alike will rise .the patriotic M'lsh
God bless  Ireland,
whilst from the backwoods of our own
fair land will arise the song—
"Deep in Canadian woods we've met,
Prom one bright Island flown,
Orent is tho land wo tread, hut yot
Our hearts are with our own;
And ere we leave this idianty email,
While fades St. Patrick's day,
We'll toast old Ireland,
Dear old Ireland,
Ireland,1-oyn, hurrah!"
in time which the opening of this canal
would mean to the farmers of the large
and rich Bectton of country interested, in
getting to their market, is a moBt important consideration. At present it is
just about as convenient, cheap, and
easy for the farmers of the district in
question to ship their produce to and
do their trading with Vancouver, and
even Victoria, as to make this city their
market and supply point. With the
proposed canal in operation, not only
would the farmers of one of the richest
and most progressive and promising agricultural sections of the Province been-
abled to market their produce, at less
than half the cost and in a quarter of the
time imposed by present conditions, but
Westminster would obviously possess
overwhelming advantages as the trading
centre for the district in question.
The matter is one which plainly interests the Surrey people, as, through
their Council, they have asked tlie
Dominion Government to take the advantages of the proposed canal to navigation into consideration, and aid tbe
scheme. Hon, E. Dewdney, Minister
of the Interior, it will have been Been
by the last report of the Surrey Council
proceedings, has acknowledged the receipt of the communication from the
Council on the subject, and, we are Informed, has promised to use his Influence to a favorable consideration of
tho matter by the Government. It is
hardly necessary, we think, to urge that
this canal scheme Ib one in which this
city should take a deep and prompt interest, and aid financially, if necessary.
There is not one of our energetic rival
cities but would eagerly jump at such an
opportunity to permanently secure tho
trade of such an extensive and rich
agricultural area as the canal in question would make tributary. But to
Westminster atone, by virtue of her
central position and other enviable
natural advantages, come opportunities
like this. Let her citizens see to it that
they arc not despised, but promptly and
energetically grasped and improved
and there is no time like the present to
act in this matter.
that gun-cotten—which gives out only
transparent gases and water-vapor,
while gunpowder yields 50 per cent, by
weight of opaque solid products—is unexcelled for BmokelessneBs, and believeB
that tbe difficulties which have been
found in its use for military purposes
will Boon be completely overcome. Various powders—though far frem perfect-
are now produced from it by German and
English makers. Mr. AlfredNobel, the
inventer of dynamite, appears to have
made with gun-cotton and nitroglycerine, treated with camphor, an absolutely
smokeless powder of superior ballistic
properties, stability and uniformity. It
is being tried in Italy for small arms aud
by Krupp for cannon.

SCIENTIFIC   MISCELLANY.
A GREAT SCHEME.
We print a letter to-day from a Surrey
correspondent on the subject of the
Boundary Bay and Fraser River Canal.
The canal scheme iu question has been
referred to and briefly described more
than once in these columns within the
last year or two. As Its title Implies,
the proposed canal would connect
Boundary Bay and the Fraser River, and
by a abort cut of about six miles, striking the Fraser just opposite Annacls Island, n short distance below this city,
thus affecting a saving of over fifty
. miles, as our correspondent shows, in
the communication by water between
thiB city aud tho great rich and fertile
tract of country comprising large portions of tho three municipalities of Surrey, Delta and Langley, which, by means
of the Serpentine, Nlcomokl and Campbell Rivers and short connections by
wagon roads, would, be directly tributary
to the canal and by this means brought
Within easy and cheap communication
with their natural market, to the mutual
advantage of both.
A persual of our correspondent's letter
will give an idea of the extent and Importance of the trade which the canal
would give an outlet to outlet to at pros-
out, and of the vast development to be
expected in the near future, as well as
of the great saving—at least one-half-
to the producer in the item of freights
alone.   The convenience and tho saving
The increase of capacity of the Suez
Canal resulting from the use of the electric light for night passages Ib equivalent
to widening the canal from Us present
bottom width of 22 metres to 32 niotrcs
—an operation which would cost at least
$2,000,000.
It is now proposed that London shall
dig the deepest hole. The pit would
have an elevator and be lighted by electricity, nnd in eacli stratum would be
excavated a museum for exhibiting
speciments of the minerals, fossils, etc.,
afforded by it.
Actinometric observations. made' at
Kiol during tho past two years lead to
the conclusion that 03.5 per cent of the
annual solar heat is absorbed by our
atmosphere, only 36,5 reaching the
ground. In October the percentage received is 41; in January and February.
28.
Compound locomotives are to be the
railway engines of the future, iu the
opinion of Mr. T. Urquhart, of the Loudon Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
In competitive trials a compound locomotive consumed 22 per cent, less fuel
than nn ordinary locomotive running
under exactly the same conditions.
Hatch/no Fish in Darkness.—At a
French agricultural station, the experiment of hatching trout ova in complete
darkness has been made. Tlie process
was delayed fifteen days by the darkness. The prolonged incubation is
claimed to give young fry greater vigor,
to produce fewer monstrosities, and to
bring the creatures into the world when
the brooks afford more food than at an
earlier period in the spring.
Friction . Instead or Quinine.—
Through a Vienna medical journal, Dr.
A, Fenykovy advises treating intermittent fever with friction along the spine.
Many yeara ago bo many cases of intermittent fever occurred in his regiment,
stationed in Servia, that the quinine
supply was failing, when rubbing the
back twice daily with simple ointment
was ordered for certaid patients. The
day afterward tho usual attack did not
appear. The treatment has been frequently employed since, and three-
fourths of this physician's cases have
dono very well without any quinine at
all.
Density or the Etheb.—The existence and possible thinness of ether
are considered by M. Him, a French
physicist, in a work on the "Constitution of Space." One of his curious conclusions is to the effect that a pound of
matter would have to be uniformly distributed throughout a space of about
140,000 square miles to give tho density
of a medium capable, by its resistance,
of causing a secular acceleration of half
a second in the mean velocity of tbe
moon. An ether of such density would
be one million times rarer than u
Crookcs vacuum of a millionth of au atmosphere.
Glass and National Development.—
In reviewing tlie history of glass-making,
Prof. Gustav Gehriug remarks that this
beautiful aud noble art has changed its
abode of supremacy with tho destinies
of tuitions, passing down the peoples of
earth iu chronological order of their
highest development. It passed from
the Egyptians to the Arabs, to the
Greeks and Romans, then during the
fourth century to Constantinople, which,
at that period, was the most luxurious
capital on the faco of tho earth, and
then to Venice. There were resuscitated the processes of the Greeks and Ro
mans, who themselves wore but disciples
of the Egyptians. Finally, it passed to
tho Bohemians, who instructed tho
French, and thoy In turn the English.
A great future now seems to be opening
for it on the western side of the Atlantic, in tho land which is "already first
In agriculture, In mining, in the packing
and exportation of meat, in tho industry
of milling and exportation of flour, and
first even in tho manufacture of iron."
Smokeless Explosives. —Since tho
discovery of gun-cotton in 1840, smokeless explosives have been much Bought,
but wero first seriously considered after
the reports about four years ago of tho
remarkable performances in Franco of
such a powder for the Sebel magazine
rifle. Notwithstanding the secresy observed, It Is now pretty certain, according to Sir Frederic Abel, tho leading
English authority on the subject, that
this and other French explosives depend
upon picric acid, which is very unstable
and unreliable.  This author declares

BRAZIL'S CHIEF PRODUCT.
Introduction and Cultivation or the Coffee Plant South of the Amazon,
As soon as the Brazilian revolution
' broke out the coffee markets of New
York, Baltimore, Havre and London
were greatly agitated. Nothing was
more natural, slnoe it Is known that
Brazil alone produces more 'than half
the coffee erop in the world. It has been
said also, wrongly or rightly, that the
emancipation of the slaves, upon whom
coffee cultivation mainly depended, had
a great deal to do with the revolution
itself. It appears, fortunately, that
neither the emancipation nor the revolution will exercise any harmful influence upon the production of the great
staple of Brazil.
Although the country was discovered
380 years ago, on April 22, ISOO, by tho
Portuguese Admiral Pedro Alvarez Ca-
bral, more than 200 years elapsed before
coffee was known in Brazil, Tbe first
trees were imported from Cayenne to
Para, in 1727, by Major Palheta, who received them as a present from Mrs.
Claude d'Orviliers, of the Frenoh colony
In Guiana. Export duties prevented,
however, extensive cultivation of the
tree until the year 1761, when the export duties were abolished. At the
same time Chancellor Castello Brarico
' brought to Rio Janeiro some coffee
trees, which furnished the seed for
the Fazendas, or plantations of
Rezende and Sao Gonzalo, whence
the cultivation spread In most districts
of the province of Rio Janeiro, and afterward In the provinces of Sao Paulo and
Mlnas Geraes. In 1770 coffee was imported In tho Maranhao, and tbo first
trees in tho province of Bahia grew
from seed offered by the Capuchin friars
of Rio to a planter of Villa Vlcosca, The
great national product was created, and
statistics have repeatedly furnished the
figures attained In its further develop*
ment. The number of coffee bags,
something like six millions and a hall
yoarly, Ib about the same as that of the
cotton bales produced In the United
States. One hundred and twenty-eight
years of the persistent work of Brazil
has sufficed to bring about such a splendid result, which can not be altered by
political disturbances to any appreciable
extent, That Is made evident by a review of the attention and great care
necessary for coffee cultivation; and if
tills has been successful and progressive
up to tho present timo, it has been due
ovidontly to Individual qualities, whioh
Brazilians aro not likely to lose In tho
future. Tho cultivation of coffee is not
an oasy matter. The soil Is soon worn
out and requires continuous attention In
order to maintain It in good condition,
Inasmuch as fertilizers are not as yet In
use and tho only kind of manure or fertilizing agent is found in the leaves of
tbe tree.
Anothor difficulty Is that the plant
begins to produce beans only when it is
two or threo years old. From the sixth
year tho crop keeps on steadily enlarging, until tho sixteenth year. From
that timo until it attains its twenty-
fifth year tho crop is good and bud alternately. Botweon the twonty-flfth
and thirty-fifth your beans can bo gathered only at intervals varying from two
to tbroe years; aftor tne tin.ty-tirth
yoar a crop is given occasionally, but
only by trees planted in first-class
ground. Coffee is cultivated with profit
on hillsides, looking toward tho rising
sun, which aro proteutod against the
cold sou thorn winds of that ausLral country. Such grounds are to ho found all
ovor Brazil, and explains how coffee
cultivation extends all over the now
great American republic, from tho Amazon down to tho southern boundary of
tbo provlnco of Sao Paulo, though tho
production Is the most considerable in
the provinces of Rio Janeiro, Minas
Geraes and Sao Paulo.— N. Y, Trlbuno.
CREDULOUS   LONDONERS.
the
A Successful Hoax I'erpot rated oi
Ilrltlsh ruhllti Many Years Ago.
Ono of the colobratod hoaxes of history took pluuo In London, January in,
1749. Some unknown person advertised
that he would on that evonlng, in tho
Haymarkot Theater, play on a common
walking oano tho muslo of evory instrument then used; that ho would while
on tho stage get Into a common quart
bottle, and while Inside would sing several songs and permit any person to
handle tho bottle; that ho would, if any
of tho spectators oamo masked, tell who
thoy were, and that in a private room
ho would produce tho representation or
any dead person and make him speak.
In spite of tho absurdity of thU advertisement tho houso was crowded. The
Duke of Cumberland was ono of tho distinguished fools present, Tho people
waited patiently for tho phonomonal
performer to arrive, but whon ho failed
to appear thoy began to got angry.
They hissed and shouted until a person
connected with tho theater came forward and announced that If thero was
no performance tho .money would bo refunded. Somebody In the gallery suggested that It tho spectators would pay
douhlo prices of admission tho conjurer
would go into a pint bottle. Tho crowd
laughed, but soon made a charge upon
fcbostngo. Cumberland was In a fury,
and wanted tho theater pulled down.
Ho drew his sword, but somohody
wrested tho weapon out of bis hand.
Most of tho audienoo rushed out of the
theater poll-moll, many losing their
hats, cloaks, wigs and swords, but some
remained inside nnd gave vent to their
rage by tearing up tho benches, smashing tbe scenery and pulling down tho
boxes.hringing tho dobrls into tho street,
whoro thoy mado a big bonflroof it.
Tbo curtain was .misted ovor tho blazing pile as a flag. It was never known
why tho hoax was perpetrated. Tho
proprietor of tbo theater wus honest in
his Intention to refund tho admission
money, and ho would havo dono so bad
not tho crowd destroyed his property.
It Is thought tho conjuror simply meant
to test tbo credulity of tho public-

QUARRYING ONYX.
How It Is Takon from the Mezlcnn Minim
In HlWlM.
Some raro specimens of Mexican onyx
and mosaic agato from Southern Mexico
may bo soon In ono of tho Colemnn Houso
parlors, Thoy are tbo property of Will-
tain Cooper, a gentleman who has traveled almost tho entire globe. Ho has a
passion for exploring, and ho found this
beautiful colleotlou In tho volcano of
Zenipoalteputl, in tho extreme southern
part of Mexico, ono hundred and eighty
miles south from tho nearest station on
tho Mexican railroad.
Mexican onyx la a form of stalagmite,
and its colors aro formed of oxides of
metals in tho earth ovor the oaves
through which calcareous water passes.
Gold Is represented by purple, silver hy
yellow, Iron by red, copper by green and
anionic and lino by wbito. Volcanic
eruptions and earthquakes havo almost
dostroyod the oaves in which onyx exists, and the natlvo Indians who mlno
It havo to out through masses of ruins.
Blocks ot tho material aro quarried in
a primitive way, in ordor not to shatter
tbe substance. Deep round holes are
drilled by hand on a line. In oaoh holo
is Inserted a snug-flttlng plooe of wood,
which has boon groovod from ond to
and. Hot water Is poured Into tho
grooves at night This swells the wood
and tho blook la split along the line
without damage. The natives then saw
the block Into slabs and polish the surface by hand. Eaohpioco is transparent,
and when placed between the eyes and a
strong light prosents a remarkably beautiful effect In form and oolor.-N. Y.
MENDING) AND   DARNING.
A Taek That is Not sus Easily Performed
as Many Heein to Think.
In mending gloves let the silk match
tho oolor as nearly as possible, and over-
seam for a rip; for a tear, button-hole
stitch closely around the edges of the
hole onoe, twice, or thrice, as the size of
the hole may demand; then join together with button-hole stitches, thus
Ailing up the bole and strengthening
the edges of the rent.
When darning stockings leave a small
loop at each end of the thread, for the
stocking will stretch and the thread
will not, and In filling up do bo closely,
hut not heavily, taking up and leaving
alternate threads. A good deal may be
saved hy cutting down for children's use
silk and lisle thread stockings which
their olders havo outworn. Whero this
is dono tho soams should be sewed up
by hand, for tho sewing-machine cuts
tho throads and they break away very
soon.
Whon shirt bosoms break stitch a
narrow linen tapo down the yielding
seam on tho right sido; or, if the bosom
is in several plaits, lino the front from
armhole toarmhole and darn the breaks.
Beforo doing this have all the starch
washed out or the darning will be a difficult matter. Never use strong, new
cotton oloth for patching old linen;
worn oloth Is best, or cheap, thin, domestic cloth with the starch washed'
out Whon the cuffs rub out at the edges
turn them In and stitch neatly on the
sewlng-machino. Whon tho neck-bands
break put on new, ones; a ragged neckband, stiffly starched, is absolute tort-
uro to the wearor. Shoots woar thin
first in tho middle; to mend them, tear
thorn down tho center, and stitch tho
outside odges up together with a fiat
seam, then patch and hem tn tbe torn
shies. If very budly worn, tako out tho
middle part altogether; making either
one shoot for a single bod or two for a
crib. When pillow cases begin to split
make new ones and take the old ones
for clean rags, always needed In a
household. Never throw away a scrap
of flannel or linen. Havo'the starch
washed out of the latter, and koep both
whoro they may be easily got at In
caso of sickness. If your supply grows
unnodossarily largo for tho neods of
your own household, tho hospitals will
bo glad of al 1 you can spare.
Darn tublo linen us neatly as possible,
with fine linen thread; und when table-
cloths aro* past mending cut thorn down
into tray cloths or napkins for common
use. Worn-out napkins are useful only
as old linon. When merino undorwear
breaks, darn it as you do stockings, and
bind anew with flannel binding when
odges fray. Tho worn edges of coat
sleeves aro best bound with coat bind*
ing; the boLtom of pantaloon-legs
should he turned in on both edges,
basted and neatly oversoamod.
Iu nietiding drossos a great deal de-
ponds upon tho ingonulty.of tho needlewoman. A bit of trimming may easily
sorve as a putch upon occasion. Thus,
a puff around tlie elbow may cover up a
holo in an ornamental way; or a deep
cuff may sorve tho same purpose lowor
down., A plastron will cover a worn
front, and so on.
When you oarn a rone in cloth or
cashmere dampen and press tho darn
when done; indeed, mending of all
kinds is improved by careful pressing.—

CROCKS  AND JARS.
They Aro Mado of Potter's Clay and Must
Ho i'lishloned Carefully.
Stonowaro is mado of potter's clay,
which is of a bluish gray color, very
hoavy, free (torn grit, and found in
many parts of tho world. It is found in
considerable quantities In Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and Maryland. It Is
usually noar tho surface, just below the
common yellow clay.- A stratum of it
ten to fifteen feet thick Is not uncommon, and it i3 gonorally easily mined.
Before it is roady for use it haB to be
ground in a mill. Some mills havo a
combination of large knives and crushing wheels, and aro run by stoam power.
When tho grinding Is completed the
clay is made into large, square blocks,
ami placed in a collar whero they will
keep moist. From hero It is taken as
needed und mudo Into smaller balls,
proportioned to tho size of tho crock or
jar to bo made.
Tho "tumor" takes ono of theso halls
of clay and places It flrmlyon tho contor
of his "wheel," a motal disk about
eighteen Indies in diameter, running
horizontally, and worked with a foofc
treadle. As the wheel revolves rapidly
ho dexterously fashions the ball of clay
Into tho desired shape. By passing a
flue wiro between tbe bottom of tho jar
und tho surface of tho wheel, they aro
separated, and tho jar Is gently lifted
and set on a board. When the board Is
full of jars it is taken to the drying-
room, whore a regular network of scaffolds holds up tho boards full of ware.
In a few days tho ware Is dry enough
to glazo Insldo, and to decorate or "blue,"
as tho workmen call it This decorating Is sometimes dono hy hand with a
camel's hair brush, and also by the use'
of stencils cut out of sweat cloth. The
ware Is now ready for tho kiln, whioh is
built of stone and lined inside with
bricks. It Is about twelve or fifteen
foot high, round, with arched or conical
top, At tho bottom are tbe flues whet.)
tho flro is placed. When the kiln Ib full
of waro tho door is walled up and a fire
is started underneath which Is gradually
Increased until the blaze comes out
through tho holes In the top of the kiln.
This heat Is Intense; the "burning"
lasts about threo days. Then the flro Is
allowed to die, and In a few days the
waro can bo removed.
Tho outsido glazing on stonowaro la
accomplished by throwing salt Into the
kiln just before the burning Is completed. Tbe inside glazing Is a solution
of "slip clay" applied with a force pump
boforo the ware Is burned.—Treasure

WANTED TO SMOKE.
A Young Albanian's Unparalleled Exhibition of Nerve,
"I saw a fine exhibition of honest,
unadulterated nerve the other night,'
remarked a young man about town to an
Albany Argus man. "I was going down
State street," ho continued, "when a
well-dressed young fellow, a stranger,
stoppod me.
" 'I beg your pardon,' he remarked,
'but I want tb ask you a question.'
" 'Well, whatdo you wish to ask?'
" 'I want to know whether you have a
real good cigar about you?1
" 'Yes, I have several,' I remarked.
" 'Then, If you will, I wish you would
give ma one,' said the follow, coolly.
" 'Why Bhould you ask me for a oigar?
I never even saw you beforo.1
" 'I am well aware ot that, but I really
want a good Binoko. I haven't a cent
and nothing elso, except a ticket to take
mo down to Mew York, where I live.'
"I looked at him. I admired the frank
ooolnosBof tbe follow and I took out my
cigar-caso and gavo him his choice. Fe
took ono out, asked me for a light, got
It, remarking: '1 am really obliged to
you,' bade me good-night and walked off
smoking veryoontcntodly." *
COLOGNE DRUNKARDS.
How Some Women Get an Idea of Whisky
and Water.
"Did you notice that woman who just
went out?" asked the olerk In a Washington street drug-store of a reporter recently.
"Yes," was the reply, "and a very
pretty woman she was, too."
"Oh, as for that," said the clerk, "she's
pretty enough, but did you notice what
she bought?"
' 'Not particularly," was the reply,' *but
I thought it was cologne or perfume of
some kind."
"So it was," said the olerk, "hut she
does not buy the cologne for perfuming
purposes, although she buys much more
of it than any other half-dozen persons
who trade at this store,"
"What, then, does she do with It if she
does not uselt for perfuming purposes?"
ventured tbe reporter.
"To get drunk on," was the laconic an-
Bwer,
"To get drunk on!"
"Yes, that's what I said. You never
have heard of cologne drunkards, then.
Well, that woman Ib a cologne drunkard, and one of the worst of them, too.
She buyB from one to two dozen of those
long, slim bottles of 4711 cologne overy
week, and she takes It entirely herself."
"How does she take It?"
"As a rule on lump's of sugar; at least
I suppose sho doos, for that Is the usual
custom of cologne takers. They saturate
a number of lumps of sugar with tho
fluid and carry thorn about with them.
When (as is the ease with a whisky
drunkard) they feel as It they needed a
drink they will take one or two lumps
ot sugar, and, lotting It dissolve In the
mouth, they will get a sort of an Imitation of perfumed whisky and sugar and
water. You know, of course, that the
base of the cologne Ib alcohol, and for
most people alcohol is altogether too
strong to be takon raw, and this is one
of tbe reasons why the sugar Is used.
"Another reason, I suppose, Ib because
it Is easier to carry about end can be
takon without detection when on the
sugar. Some of tho cologne users—and
there arc a great many—can drink their
liquid raw, and those who have arrived
at that stage can drink pure alcohol, or
almost any thing else except perhaps,
sulphuric or some kindred acid."
"Are many men addicted to the
habit?" was asked.
"No, I have never heard of a single
case ot a man taking cologne, but there
aro many women who make a regular
practice of It, and a groat many of the
drug stores have regular customers
whom they supply with different brands
of cologne and perfume. By far the
greater portion of them, however, use
this 4711, 'which Is made In Germany,
and has a very fragrant refreshing and
lasting odor.
"I have Bat- In the theater many a
night and watched elegantly-dressed
ladles, whose husbands had perhaps
gono out between tho acts, slyly open
their reticules and extract the sweet*
smelling cubos of sugar. • After several
of these had boon dissolvod the lady
would havo what tho boys call a 'a still'
on, that is, she would bo sort of quietly
drunk, and her husband, who had been
out soveral times himself 'to see a man,'
would nover notice It as his own libations had dulled his senses a bit.
"Oh, yes, it's a groat scheme for the
ladles, for It perfumes their breath as
well as gets them full, but It would lie
fur bettor for their constitutions if thoy
were to drink whisky, brandy, gin or
any other kind of liquor, as nono is
nearly so injurious in Its effect as is tho
aologne."—Boston Globe.

HOME  HINTS AND  HELPS
—A teaspoonful of granulated sugar
moistened with pure vinegar will generally romedy that annoying complaint,
hiccough.   -.
•-Three slmplo meals a day and dally
labor, warm clothIng.KuUlctont food, sun
and air aro tho main comtit.ons upon
which health can ho onjoyed.
—An old recommendation often given
young housekeepers is to use tea leaves
In swooping carpets, but their use on
delicate colors should be avoided, at
they will surely stain light carpets.
—Silk, of all grades and colors, can
bo washed in clear water which is poured
off from grated raw potatoes. Dip tho
pieces of silk In this water and wipe
them on both sides with a coarse towel.
—One little dish alone, varied ouch
day, of dainty preparation and inviting
nature, with an accompaniment of bread
and butter and a relish, will do more to
preserve the complexion than all tho so-
called "plain food" under which our
tables groan In unoosthetic superabundance.
—Hop Sirup.—Take four handfnlsof
hops, put In a porcelain kettle .with ono
quart of cold water, simmer to a pint;
pare and slice two lemons; put thorn In
a pitcher or howl with ono and a half
pounds of granulated sugar; then strain
the pint of boiling hop-extract In tho
lemon and sugar, stirring till tho sugar
Is thoroughly dissolved. This sirup is
anodyne and expectorant, pleasant to
take and excellent in disposing of a
troublesome cough.—N. Y. Journal
—A wrong and over-Indulgent conduct
of parents to children la the greatest
cruelty to them; for If they never meet
with a contradiction till they are of ago
to engage in tho great concerns of life,
how will they be able to sustain tho
disappointments and mortifications
they must encounter in thiB world?
But a perverse, Injudicious manner of
contradicting a'nd thwarting tbetn, and
very severe corrections for trifles, does
them almost as much harm as a universal indulgence.
—Russian Salad,—This consists of
boiled carrots, hunts, turnips and purs-
nips out In small round pieces by means
of a tin cylinder, and inch-lengths of
boiled Btriug beans. All tho vegetables
aro separately boiled In salted boiling'
water, only, until tender, drained, and
then Immediately plunged into cold
water to sot tholr color; after thoy .aro
dried upon a soft clean oloth they will
be ready to dress like any vegetable
salad, with salt, pepper, oil and vinegar.
This salad Is oxcollent with any roast.-

A fltory of the shah.
It Is told of Nasr-ed-Deon that on ono
occasion he conceived tbe Idea of imitating Haroun-el-Raschid, and going
about hy night in disguise and unattended through the streets of Teheran. On
leaving the oastle the sentinel, dozing
in his box, let him pass two nights without hindrance, whereupon the Shah had
the sleepy sentinel flogged. The third
sight another soldier stood on guard,
and he stopped the Shah, and forced
him, dosplto all his protestations, to
spend tho rest of the night in tho sentry-box, barring ogress with hla bayonet The next morning the Shah, after
having been liberated, first hod tho unaccommodating soldier bastinadoed and
then sent him a purse with a sum equal
to 9150 and a robe of honor, but the Shah
was cured of his love for nightly excursions.—London Spectator.

A meeting will be held in theHyack
Hall to-morrow evening at 8 o'clock for
the purpose of forming a fish and game
jrotection society. Such a society is
badly needed in this section of the District in view of the fact that game is in*
descriminately slaughtered at all seasons of the year, ana frequently not for
the sport of it, but out of pure wantonness. The promoters of the organization are all men who are imbued with
the spirit of true sportsmen, and in their
hands the fish and game hereabouts will
be better protected in the future than in
the paBt. Every one is welcome to attend the meeting, and enroll theirnames
on the membership roll. The meeting
should attract every true sportsman. in
the city.

The Fisheries.
Mr. Mowat's office to-dry was probably
the best patronized place in town. The
room, hall and stairway were lined with
fishermen both morning and afternoon,
all anxious to get their licenses. To a
Columbian representative Mr. Mowat
said that he had orders to allot the licenses to the fishermen according to
seniority, which means that all the old
hands will be served first and the newcomers next. Mr. J. E. Lord, as a
market fisherman, has been awarded
three licenses, and the freezers and
other market fishermen will be dealt
with according to the rules governing
the issue received from the department,
The fishermen are generally well satisfied with the new regulations, though
many of them would prefer u different
weekly close time.

Vancouver is only one place In tho Province, and hy no means more important

talented lecturer showed thut there was
a Intimate connection botwoen the health
of the physical and tho well-being of
the moral and spiritual man, and made
clear the fact that a great deal of avoidable misery and sin was caused by ignorance aud carelossuesB with regard to
tho food of the human race, this
evil being not second, in the lecturer's
opinion, to the evils of the liquor traffic.
Dr, Baldwin gavo her audience many
valuable hints on the suhject which, if
remembered and acted upon, cannot
fall to do much good.
From Osuoyos.
Capt. Pittendrigh has received a letter
from hiB sou Henry 8. Pittendrigh,
manager of the estate of the late Judge
Haines, in Osooyos, in which the writer
states the winter has been very severe,
in fact the coldest in the memory of the
oldest settler. During the month of
February the thermometer ranged continually below zero, but at the date of
writing, March 2nd, the cold waB Icbs
severe, with every indication of milder
weather. . The cattle on the Haines
ranch escaped without Iosb, the supply
of hay on hand being sufficient to feed
the animals through the coldest weather.
Neighboring ranches, however, have not
fared so well, and Mr. Pittendrigh writes
that in some instances the loss will be
almost total. The ranchers are all
hoping earnestly for an early spring,
for if the cold weather lasts another
month the losses will be immense all
over the district.
A Great Sale.
Mr. T. J. Trapp's sale of real estate on
Saturday night was most satisfactory in
evory way and the prices realized were
much better than ever before, showing
that Westminster property is still advancing in value. The suburban property sold at remarkably high figures,
and lots that a year ago would not sell
at $20 bought from $100 to $150 each.
Following is the list of properties sold
Lots 5 and 0, sub-div. of lot 25, block 6,
suburban, $585 for the two; lot 47, block
0, suburban,'$5,100; subdivision of lot
10, block 13, lots 21 and 22, $210 each;

Construction Ke-oommenoed.
Mr. Janes, C. E., of the Westminster,
Fairhaven & Southern Railway, completed the new location of the Hue from
the Nicomekl to Blaine last week. The
right of way arrangements were also
concluded us well as other necessary details. This morning Mr. James Loamy,
contractor of the construction of the
line, sent out a large force of men to
commence the work of grading iuto
Blaine. They will turn the first sod tomorrow morning and push construction
as rapidly as possible till it is completed.
The rood bed will he finished to Blaino
within six weeks, and ready for the
rails, which are expected to arrive at
Westminster before that time. Rail
laying will be inaugurated as soon us
the first vessel arrives. From all that
can be learned, active operations on the
road between Fairhaven and Westminster may now he said to have set in, and
the original intention of having the line
ready for the first train ou July 1st will
undoubtedly be carried out. Whdrf
building and other important works in
connection with the termini arrange,
ments will soon he commenced, and then
look out for a business rush such txt
Westminster has nevor before experienced,

Pulloe Matters.
On Saturday evening the police made
a raid on a Chinese gambling den in the
swamp, and arrested tho keeper, Joe
Pan, and took him, together with the
gambling paraphrenaliu, to tho lockup.
The haul in the shape of cash was small,
but the book of accounts was large, and
would take some months to translate
accurately. The case came beforo the
police magistrate thiB morning and by
request was adjourned till Thursday
morning. From all that can be learned
concerning the style of defence, it is
very probable this will be the most interesting case over heard before the
police court in this city. Mr. Morrison,
of the legal firm of Thornton Fell, will
conduct the defence. The game will be
fully explained In court on Thursday,
and, no doubt, will attract a largo
audience.
A case of assault was to have come
before the court, but the defendant, a
man named Dunn, failed to put in an
appearance and a bench warrant was
issued for his arrest. The plaintiff, a
Celestial named Ah Chin, was present,
and certainly the highly colored fresco
work over his left optic proved that his
head had been in collision with something harder than soap suds. The case
will be finished to-morrow morning.
An Indian woman applied for aud obtained a warrant for the arrest of a
Siwash named Christopher Columbus,
who, Bhe swears, called her a great many
unpleasant names on Front street yesterday afternoon, The warrant has
been issued for the great discoverer's
arrest, and he wilt have to answer for
his unseemly conduct at court to-morrow.

Very Much MUrepreienled.
Rev. Dr. Warren, the newly appointed
Presbyterian minister at Ladners, called
at this office to-day, and stated that the
report of his sermon, by a Ladners correspondent, which appeared in The
Daily Coi.umaian of the 12th inst. was
complete misrepresentation of the
discourse. The letter in question, it
will lie remembered, although it
did not mention the name of preacher,
stated where and when tho sermon was
delivered, nnd represents the preacher
as sotting forth heterodox doctrines with regard to the resurrection, baptism, etc. Dr. Warren very
reasonably shows that, as ho preached
at the time and place and on the subject
mentioned hy our correspondent, he is
clearly pointed to and injured by the
false report, He states also that many
who heard the sermon are indignant
that it should have been misrepresented.
Dr. Warren has the notes of the sermon, and, from his brief explanation nt
this ofllce of what he did set forth on
the subject on the occasion wo mentioned, we are forced to the conclusion that
our correspondent has takon an altogether unwarranted and mistaken impression from the sermon and embodied
that impression .in his report, which we,
therefore, regret having published. We
might state here that wo have also received a letter from a resident of Ladners,
asking us to furnish the name of the
writer of the report in question, as the
latter greatly misrepresented the
preacher. ThiB request, however, we
cannot comply with, although we are
glud to give space to the fullest correction of tlie report.

Mendelssohn Quintette Club Concert.
The concert given by the Mendelssohn
Quintette Club of Boston at the College
of Music last night was attended by a
thoroughly appreciative and critical audience. Mozart's clarionet quintette, a
favorite with amateurs on account of the
spontaneous melody of its first and last
movements, and the expressive beauty
of its slow movements, was first played
as a whole in Toronto a few years ago,
at the Monday Popular Concerts, and
was repeated later in the same season in
response to a desire of a majority of the
subscribers. Last night, the minuet,
with its two trios, was omitted. In thiB
composition the clarionet has the principal part, and as it waB a favorite instrument witb Mozart, judging from the way
lie has treated it in his scores, it will be
understood that ample opportunities are
given in tho quintette for au effective
display of the performers' artiBtic powers. Tlie clarionet was taken by Mr.
Ryan, the veteran organizer, manager,
and member of the club; and from him
it is scarcely necessary to state the principal part received a judicious andmu-
sicianiy interpretation. Tho second
number consisted of a couple of solos for
the violincello by Mr. Max Droge. The
first, the "Adagio," by Hoffman, gave the,
soloist the opportunity of displacing a
broad winging tone to advantage, while
in the second, a characteristic dance in
the Spanish style, by Popper, permitted
a play of fancy and an exhibition of a
certain amount of virtuosity which Mr,
Droge availed himself of to advantage,
The next number, Snrasate's concert
fantasia for violin on Gounod's "Faust/
played by Mr. Ohliger, won the great
success of the evening. The solo is one
bristling with what De Beriot would
have called "trauscedeutal" difficulties.
Its principal feature is the ingenious
manner in which Sarusute has treated
and elaborated Mephistopheles' song of
the "Golden Calf," which he has made
almost more bizarre and satanic than
the original. Although Mr. Ohliger was
Buffering from indisposition he played
the piece with great brilliancy and fire,
displaying exceptional resources both in
the technique of the left hand and the
''mechanism" of the bow. In cantabile
movements Mr. Ohliger produces a
powerful, searching tone from his instrument, and IiIb style is generally virile and free from undue sentimentality.
This solo created quite a, furore, and the
applause was thoroughly spontaneous
and enthusiastic. The soloist was evidently gratified at such a marked recognition from so. critical au audience, and
responded willingly with an encore
number.—Toronto Mail Reserved seats
for this concert, next Friday evening,
are on sale at Lyai's book store.
VICTORIA NOTES.
THK  BOUNDARY  BAY  AND FKASKll
RIVER CANAL.
Editor Columbian—Sir—Were this
highly Important public work constructed, it would be of immense advantage
to the city of New Westminster, in many
wayB. For instance, it would bring the
whole of the traffic from the fertile
valley of the Serpentine, Nicomekl and
Campbell rivers, including the settlements of Mud Bay, Elgin, Clover Valley,
Clayton, Langley Prairie, St. Leonard's,
Hall's Prairie, Sydenham,Boundary Bay,
and a considerable portion of Delta, to
say nothing of of the trade likely to be
developed with the American side when
the city of Blaine shall have become a
Sort of entry. Its construction will re-
uce the distance from the settlements
to the city by fifty miles or more, and
will also avoid the necessity of sailing
around Point Roberts to leach the
mouth of the river.
The estimated amount of grain raised
during the past season would amount
(in the district to be benefited by the
canal) to fully 1,000 tons, with not'n
tithe of the land available under crop,
and when the Serpentine drainage and
dyking scheme has beeu brought to a
successful issue, there will be several
thousands of acres moro land made
available for cultivation and put under
crop during the present season; thus
the amount raised will be immensely
increased.
One will oasily observe the saving it
would be to the farmers in the matter
of freights alone. At present it costs
from two to three dollars, or more, per
ton to ship freight under tho existing
system to New Westminster, but wero
the canal constructed the freights would
not cost more than half as much, thus
saving a very considerable sum to the
producer.
There is also another question to be
considered iu connection with this matter, and that is the establishment of a
market in the city of Westminster, with
regular market days, so that farmers
bringing produce to town may be sure
of selling what they have. Westminster to-day holds the first position over
anycity in the Province; still, to retain
that position Bhe will have to provide
modern systems of trading and maintaining her advantage. The largest and
best agricultural districts are certainly
being brought into closer connection
with her, and us tlie various avenueB for
trade are being steadily developed Westminster will become tho centre of the
farming district of the lower mainland.

off.
The wrestling matches under the auspices of the Victoria Athletic Club at the
