NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The back caso of a gold watch,
stamped with a crown and the monogram "N," has Iweu recovered from
tho Zulus. It belonged to the ill-
fated Prince Imperial.
There was a curious championship match in New York the other
day, contestants being the telegrogh
and the telephone. The test was,
the number of words transmitted in
in ten minutes, and the telephone
came out apparently ahead by sixteen words. But examination showed that many of,the words so sent
had'been Inobrrtctly received, while
the telegraph hod made no niistkes,
and to it, consequently, the ■ victory
was awarded! K
-A serious epidemic of small pox
at Preston, England, is bringing
modern ideas of the treatment of the
disease to the front.1 A sanitary
engineer urges the removal of all
patients from homes to temporary
sheds. He asserts that he has
[seen patients, in summer, of course,
placed under open sheds, lying upon
straw, and not one of them died,
neither did the disease spread.
Plenty of fresh air it the best thing
for the patients; and the possibility
of completely burning up the infec-
ed premises and everything in them,
is the only certain safeguard against
infection.
The Queen of Sweden1 is undergoing peculiar treatment to restore
her nerves to a normal condition.
Her doctors have ordered her to rise
early, make her own bed and dust
and sweep the room. She has to
take a walk in the garden before
breakfast, work among the flowers
afterwards, and lead an active outdoor existence all day long. Already the Queen has been benefited
by this curious«",o»re," the "chambermaid treatment," us it is called,
The same mode of life might benefit many a womon in this country
who has lost her grip on her norvet.
"That tired feeling" the advertisements speak of will succumb after
a time to a course in lad-making
aud dusting,
We confess to some surprise at
finding in this month'. Ohamberi
Journal an article in which it it
posityely asserted that there ire
several men in England who successfully practice the- finding of
water by the use of a '•divining rod."
Quite a string of instances of their
successful operations is given, and
the statement is made that they
have numerous testimonials from
"noblemen, parsons, bishops, officers
of th. army, engineer!, magistrates
and others." The writer asserts that
he himself hot held the rod and felt
it curl up in hit fingert as a stream
or pool of water wot crossed, and on
one occasion, when he used a pair
of pincers to prevent it froni turn-
ing, the ends (it was Y shaped)
split themselves in their effort to
curl! "-' ■' •
Dr. Lyman Abbot, writing of
American materialism says:—I do
not ask that men of wealth shall
give more money to the Church,
which is often stronger when it is
poor than when it is rich; nor to
the poor and thriftless, whom unearned money only keepa in poverty.
1 urgo that the power to make
money, like any other power, is a
trust bestowed on the possessor for
humanity. Tlie pretoher who
prenelies for his salary, not for the
spiritual well-being of his parishioners, is a mercenary; the physician
who practises for his fees, not to
cure the sick, is a mercenary; the law
ycr who pleads for his honorarium,
not for justice, is a mercenary; the
politician who enacts laws for what
lie can make, not for the community, is a mercenary; no loss tlie
manufacturer, the merchant, tlio
trader, the man on'change, who transacts his business to make money,
.not to give the community its meat
in clue season, it a mercenary 111
tlie history of the nineteenth ecu
tury, the doctrine that wealth is a
trust must stand by the side of the
doctrine that labour is an honour
and liberty is an obedience. The
materialism that threatens the
American Church, is not the materialism of Herbert Spencer. It it
the materialism of the railroad, the
factory, the shop; the materialism
that puts Ihinghood above manhood;
that does not know that' things
wero made for man, not man for
things—that God gives us, not Irishmen to build our railroads, but railroads to build Irishmen; not Hung-
garians to dig our mines, but mines
to develop mandood in Hungarians,

.London, Au«. H.--I11 regard to rho
action of Mr. Parnell the Pall Mall
Oasette says: "Mr. Faruell's trick
tenus to pleaso his supporters and has
disquieted hi. foe., but it resemble,
playing^ fast: and loose, and we doubt
whother it will do its contrivers iuy
good. If Mr. Parnell has discovered
the forger, who plauiicd the letters
published by the Times, Ihen it is no
trick, hut the execution of t determination long avowed; but his admirers'
groundwork I for applause is on the
trick by which he will be-devil the
commission of enquiry, Is this Mr.
Parnell's object lit is a false move
and Mr. Parnell. has changed front in
face of the enemy, which is dangerous.
The tardy adoption of the course which
he ref'ised to take when It would hare
been useful to hi. English allies will
not be understood. The commission
will proceed with the work and Mr,
Parnell cannot arrest it; if he refuses
to testify before it he will harm nobody so much as himself. As' Mr.
Parnell't esse stands he has no motive
to hold his tongte but to challenge inquiry." 1 rn

The spiritualistic humbug is receiving fresh set-backs in the states
oil'the'time. The spirit mediums,
too, are having an awful hard time
of ie-lately. A large 'number are
languishing in various jails through-
, out the country, charged with being
No..4,1- all-^wool-and-a-yard-wide
frauds^ audi sud to relate, the spirits
that eeiidbscended to bob around at
their beck and call seemed to have
retained enough of their human
characteristics to desert their medium! just when the latter needed
them most But the strong hand
of the law is not all that the mediums have to fear. Judging from
thoTeports in American papers from
districts ' where mediums most
abound, even the spirits themselves
are having troublous times. According to an American exchange,
at Chicago a few evenings since a
medium had succeeded in bringing
enough spirits out of a cabinet that,
if forinod into a procession, might
have taken twenty minutes in pasting a given point The' lower jaws
of die audience were resting in their
laps with awe, and all went well
until the spirit of Joan of Arc appeared and a fresh young man frac-
tared the icy stillness by blurting
out in a hoarse whisper, "There's a
rat just under the spirit's drapery."
Then the spirit of the valorous and
heroic Joan of Arc suddenly grabbed
for'the bottom of her skirts with' all
thHiandSsho had, and gathering
her feet together she jumped fully
four feet in the air with a
shriek that startled the audience out of their seats. The girlish spirit still further surprised the
audience by making a break for tlie
interior of the cabinet with so much
enthusiasm as to kick it clean over,
and when the lights were suddenly
turned up the Unfortunate materialized spirit of Joan of Arc Was seen
sprawling out on the floor nnd groan-
ing tthWftlry with the weight of tho
cabinet across the small of her back.
One of the spirits playing a week's
engagement with a western medium
also came to grief a few days ago.
The medium had won considerable
fame and dollars by causing spirits
to come out of her cabinet and float
in the air above the heads of the
audience. One evening when n particularly big spirit was sailing
gracefully about in mid-air, the wire
suddenly broke and the heavy weight
spirit fell down into the pale, upturned faces of twelve old gentlemen ol strong characteristics, but
weak necks, and knocked them silly.
The heel of the motherly spirit also
struck her self-confessed grandchild
in the mouth and knocked out four
of her front teeth. The old gentlemen were pulled from under the
spirit and sent homo in a carriage
in a more or less dilapidated state,

The regular periodic inundation!,
principally in the spring season, of
the valleys of th. Mississippi and of
the Ohio constitute a very serious
problem,'and one of national' im-
portahce, to the United States.
Ourreiulert have been made familiar in th. pott with the newspaper
accounts of the Hoods and sohie of
< their dire'rtWlts to life and properly;, at alto the suspension of all
aorta of traffic and communication
boUrbvlarttl.nd water in the districts affected, and a consequent
loss and inconvenience to the
whole country. In an entertaining
ant!iitthsKnivulnrtlole on "Rivers
*nd ▼HflfeyS," In WVitWt for Au
gust, Prof. N. S. Shaler discusses,
among other things, the causes leading to these damaging floods, and
the best means for remedying the
m,atter,:Rrtifictolly, so toisprak. The
valleys of uiojit rivers arSforest cludi"-
says the wribw, a self eSjitliiht pi'rtV-
position. Thjese fbrestsfwhrtlu-r in
the tropic,' temperate, or frigid
zones, and like or unlikn in
other characteristics, in nil cases
form beneath their branches, and
above the soil, a thick, spongy
coating, from a foot to two feet in
thickness;-which affords a natural
reservoir for the rain waters, capable
of holding in its interstices a rainfall of three or four inches in depth,
or from ono-sixth to one tenth the
ordinary annual supply. This wu-
ter is slowly yielded to tho brooks;
it often requires weeks for a single
torrential rain entirely to escape into
the open channels which bear it to
tho sea. Moreover, tho fallen
trunks and branches of tho trees
clog the forostshaded rivulets, mak
ing little pools which serve still
further to restrain the outgoing of
the waters. Thus, in .the natural
coudition of tlie JJortlt American
rivers, as well as those of most other
countries before man began to clear
away the forests, the woods constituted a great system of reservoirs,
in whioh the rains were retained into the period of intervening,
droughts. When man resorted to
the soil as the source of his food he
began to clear away the forests and
by tillage to destroy1 the spongy
covering of the earth they created,
and all the great valleys on the
northern., tempera to zone have been
ton.eonsiderablo extent deprived of
their forest covering. In this new
state of the surface, the rain-witter
is no longer held back as it was of
old, but runs quickly over the surface
of the soil and enters the water-ways,
with the result that, in times of flood
the water rises higher than of old
and spreads devastation over a, wide
area of the alluvial plains, while in
times of drought the streams shrink
within their waste of incumbering
sands and become unnavigable.' The
writer shows, too, that among other
evils, tlie surface of the soil is becoming impoverished by having its
substance washed into the streams.
Attention is called to the feet that,
as more than half of the original
forest'covering in ' the Mississippi
valley yet remains, only the begiti-
nirtg of the evils which may be exported has so fa* been s^en. It is
estimated that a small area,' perhaps not exceeding one-ienth of the
original forests, may lie retained in
their present shape, in order to afford supplies of timber. "It is
therefore neoessary," says' 'Prof.
Slhaler, if we have to control these
floods at all; to devise some means by
which, we may imitate'tho old- natural system of water storage which
the primeval woods afforded,' There
is but one method by which this
end may be accomplished, viz., by
creating artificial reservoirs in which
the waters may bo for a timo retained during theperiod otVfloods." The
writer adverts to ithe' scheme for
controlling the floods of the Mississippi valley proposed by the distinguished engineer, | Mr. Ohas. ■ Ellet,
some years ago. This' was a proposition to build certain large dams in
the upper waters of the Mississippi
system, in which during the times
of flood a considerable part of the'
flow might be impounded, to be discharged into the channels at such
times as was needed to obtain a
navigable depth of water, Prof.
Shaler shows that these may burst
in flood times, with peculiarly disastrous consequences, and suggests a
slight modification of Mr. Kllet's.
plan, as follows: "In place of half
a dozen great artificial lakes, we
should adopt the plan of having
many thousands, or tens of thou]
sands, of smaller reservoirs, bo arranged that no one would, by its
bursting, lead to the destruction of
any other.' We could by this means
retain on the surface of the land a
very considerable part of the flood
waters whioh now prove disastrous
to the vallnys below." Tho writer
estimates that a system controlling,
in the manner described, the floods
which ravage the valleys Of the
Mississippi and its. large tributaries
would probably require a total expenditure of over one hundred' mil-'
Hon dollars, and would cost annually for maintenance as much as ten
million dollars. As the forest con'
tinued to disappear, it would lie
necessary to extend still further the
area of the storage reservoirs;
"Whether this great task is to be
undertaken by the federal government or by associated commonwealths," concludes the writer,
"there can be no question that it
should be at once entered upon.
Every year increases the. magnitude
o( the necessities and the difficulty
of devising means to meet them."

Uracil fire Practice.
The Hyack Fire Company, "under
command of Chief. Corbett, paraded
for practice last night. The mutter
was a large one and the men were
active and fully up' to . their duties.
Only a few minutes were occupied in
getting up steam and soon a strong jet
of water was issuing from the nozzle of
the hose line. Capt. Peele't flag staff
wet the point of attack, but the victory was easy, as the stream of water
thot fully 40 feet into tho air above
tho weather-cock. A second stream
was turned on, which had the effect of
slightly reducing the force, but not to
any great extent. Columbia street received a much-needed drenching and
the buildings on either side wore nicely washed. On tho whole the practice
was most satisfactory and showed the
brigade to be thoroughly disciplined,
and able to copo with any lire not of
extraordinary proportions. .

Peel Ball Club.
A meeting of the foot ball club was
held last evening, at the court house
and was largely attended. Mr. Walker
occupied '• the chair. The election of
officers was the first business disposed
of and resulted as follows!: President,

presidents, Capt. Bole, (j. C.,M.P.P.,

communicate with the other club, of
the province in regard to a provincial
rugby union organisation.- The club
ha. now 25 members enrolled and 10

received. The fees are fixed at $2 entrance and 50 cents per- month. The

Next Saturday a cricket match will
be played between the Westminster and
Vancouver elevens on the cricket
grounds in this city. The Westminster club hat been most unfortunate in
its matches this summer, and the wish
is general that victory will crown her
efforts on this occasion. Unfortunately the members have devoted: very little attention to practice for several
weeks past, there being so many other
attractions to occupy their time. On
other occasions Westminster cannot be
said to have had her best team on the
field, but it is to be trusted all differences will be laid aside and that the
players selected for the coining match
are choaen only for their skill. The
following gentlemen will probably coin-
pose tho team: Coulthard, Miles, Wilson, Woods, Armstrong, Lewis, Green,
Chappell, Gilford, Raymond, and Hamber or Smith. This is the strongest
team that can be chosen from the club,
and it should be able to win the day.

Tlio name of Captain Bogardu. is a
household word in tho sporting circles
of every land. He is tho undisputed
greatest living marksman; in May,
1875, he carried awn? the cltnmpioii
medal of the world and all the honors
in a memorable contest. Since, through
u succession of twenty-five smoke
orowned encounters, ho list held -undisputed and victorious possostiou of
the everywhere coveted trophy. He
is the ouly man that ever killed 100
birds in as many shots, and who broke
1,000 glass ball, in 1,000 shots in all
in cue hour and six minutes. His remarkable record is without precedent
or parallel, and the most expert handlers of the shotgun have tried in vain
to equal the loast of his well-known
achievments. His oldest son is master
of the rifle and tlie^ifilun«wledged sur-
perior of the . most unerring shots
known to the sporting' world, tnd the
youngest, a boy of only twelve years,
while rapidly manoeuvering on roller
skates, hreakes gists balls (with his
rifle) held in his -lather's unprotected
hands, and supplements this amusing
performance by ringing a target bell,
at twenty paces, sixteen tunes in
twenty seconds. The most marvelous

At 8 o'clock on Tuesday evening
eleven of the thirteen gentlemen elected lo make a presentation to the Rev.
Father Horris were assembled in the
parlor of the Bishop's palace. Mr.
Chas. McDonough proposed that Mr.
John Uondry do tako tho chair. Carried unanimously- On the motion uf
Mr. A. J. McBride Mr. 0. A. Kelly
was elected secretary.
Tho chairman then addressed Father
Horris end tsid: "I have great pleasure in attending here to assure you that
I feelyou deserve the good wishes of our
fellow men. 1 havo known yon for
many years to ho a good kind friend to
all who required your aid. You stand
very high in public estimation. We
arc lissom bled here to present you with
uu address, and » purse which contains
sonic money that will bo useful to pay
expenses when you Icuvu us: but we
hope to see you again iu good health
turrounded by yuur friends in tho royal
city. The secretary will now read the
address
Mr. Kelly then read tlie  following:
Rev. Dkab Father Horhis:—We ro.
grot to hear that your physicians declare
a change of scene is necessary to restore
your health and that you arc forced to
leavens.
After so many years of cordial friendship we approach you now to say—farewell. The members of your church know
you arc a good priest and a true friend,
and tho: members of other churches in
this city know also that you wero always
a good kind hearted man and a christian
gentleman, Therefore all join lu wish-
Tug you a safe journey, and request you
to reoeivo at a small token of respect, the
donation presented herewith. Trusting
you will be speedily restored to health,
.and to see and hear yon again. We are
your sincere friends.
Here follows the names of seventy-five
well known citizens.
' Mr. Kelly—I am instructed by the
treasurer, Mr. Jos. Fitzsimnions, to
lay that up to this hour the subscriptions amount to 9018.
Mr.Fitssimmons-And boforeFather
Horris leaves to-morrow the amount
will exceed $050.
The chairman then took up the address nnd the purse and presented both
to Father Horris, who was evidently
overpowered by a feeling of gratitude.
Father McGucksn came to the resoue,
and said: -'Mr. Chairman and gentlemen: Father Horris is not in good
health. Ou his behalf I thank you
sincerely for your generous gift, and
for tho kind words of friendship contained iu your address. No member uf
our order is entitled tu havo or to own
property of any kind, hut in this case,
under the circumstances that compel
Father Horris to leave us fur a time,
you may rest assured that every cent
uf the money provided for him by you
shall be used exclusively for his own
use. The sum you have subscribed is
very large, but I am not surprised.
Every member of our order engaged in
missionary duties has been received
tnd assisted by men of all creeds and
classes iu the province, and in the most
generous maiinor. For favors received
our order it very much in debt to the
gent)nil'! public: I thank you Mr.
Chairman' and gentlemen for your
kindness on this occasion.
Father Horris who appeared to be
completely astonished by the kindness
of his friends, assured them that he was
grieved by the thought of parting with
them, hut he hoped to see them all
again, prosperous and happy.
At this stage of the proceedings a
brother entered bearing a tray on
which several 'bottles of wine were
shining. There were no wine glasses
but an abundant supply of water-goblets; into theso Father McGuokon,
with tho hand uf an Irishman, poured
the red wine, arid in a few minutes the
members of the deputation were eloquent. Mr. G. A. Kelly rose and
said—In such wine as this yuu could
drink the health of any man, and I say
gentlemen, it is our duty to drink the
health of our worthy chairman, Mr.
John Hendry; a representative man,
large hearted, and liberal-minded; he
employs and pays hundreds of men in
this province, and they all sty he is a
generous paymaster. His integrity and
business-like ability have placed him at
the head of 'pur commercial community, and he deserves npplauae, therefore
you will vith pleasure drink his health
—for he's a jolly good fellow. The
toast was drank with all the honors.
Mr. Hendry in response said: "Gen
tlemen, you' know I am not a speech-
maker; but I feel pleased in doing iny
duty, and I am well pleased to be here
with you to-night to compliment uur
eld friend, Fathe? Horris.
Mr. Chas. MoDonough then proposed, the health of "Our Protestant
Friends." Mr. A. J. McBride and
Mr. Peter Grant were called on.
Mr. Grant said that though he did
not represent any uf Iho churches in
tho community ho felt that in speaking
for himself in regard lo Father Horris
he was hut giving exproision to tho
feeling, of tho entire community, that
the rev. gentleman as a elurgyman and
a good citizen wub universally esteemed
and respected by all classes and creeds,
and he regretted very much the necessity for his retirement from tho field iu
which he hud so lung and faithfully
labored. But he trusted that a few
months' rest,breathing his native air in
the Emerald Isle would restore hiin tn
perfeot health and enable him tu return to his many friends on the Pacific
Coast.
Mr. McBride .aid: "I have the
honor to bo a brother ollicer uf the
Rev. Father Horris. All tho officers
in the penitentiary will miss him, and
no one more so than myself, for he is a
sincere, kind-hearted friend.
The company then commenced to
talk in undertones, and continued tu
be eloquent for a few minutes, when
the chairman laid: " Gentlemen, I
believe the buiinesi i. over, and I uuw
propose that we lay good-bye to
Father Horris and with him Godspeed." Then followed a general
handshaking, and in a few minutes
the proceedings terminated.
Before the train left to-day the purse
had been raised to the handsome sum
of W.00^ .
A, B, DcsRochors, Arthabaskaville,
P. Ij., writes i "Thirteen years ago I was
seized with a severe attack of rheumatism
in the head, from whioh 1 nearly constantly Buffered, until after having used
Dr. Thomas' Eoleutrio Oil for nine days,
bathing the head ftc, when I was com-
pletely cured, and have only used half

tVr«Me Kail Service;
The Canadian Pacific railway submitted two propesili to the Imperial
government for a service of fast
iteamorB between Vancouver, Shanghai and Hongkong. The first was for
a fortnightly service for which an annual subsidy uf £100,000 is required
for 10 yosrs. Tho other was for a
monthly service and the subsidy asked
for wa. £60,000 per annum. The
Canadian government content to give
£16,000 per annum towtrdi the latter.
The company claim that in grant uf
time they can equal all the new tervice
via Bundisi and Suez tu Hongkong,
that Ihe uew route will be one week
quickor lo Shanghai, and at least two
weeks quicker tn Yokohama. For tho
subsidy whioh has boon granted tho
company will curry tho mails between
an Atlantic pert and tho Pacific as well
at to and from Vancouvor. The company arc prepared tu pay the usual
penalty in case the times agreed upon
should be exceeded. The company
agree to build steamers to meet admiralty requirements, so that they may bo
available as armed cruisers within a
vety short time if so rcquirod. The
company stipulate that they will carry
men and small quantities uf materials
when required at coat price, and huge
quantities at lowest rates. It is
claimed on behalf uf the new arrangement that it would tike the fastest
British cruiser two months to reach
British Columbia from England and it
would not carry troops enough to be of
use for any purposes of war. By the
route via the 0. P. R., however, it is
asserted, crewt for vessels on the Australian coast could be delivered from
England in 28 to 30 days, and from
Vancouver in 16 to 17 days. The C.
P. R. company have, it is understood,
given the order for the building of iix
new steamers, and in the meantime
will use.temporary vessels.
