SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
It is not yet known why the shell
of tho lobster turni red on being
boiled.
Tho question is asked, why women
always (with exceedingly rare exceptions) button from right to left
and men from left to right.
A Vienna theatre has an electric
organ, which is placed at the back
of the stage and connected by a
cable with a key-board in the orchestra.
Experiments have been made in
Russiu on the culture of minute
parasitic plants for the destruction
of injurious insects. Caterpillars
feeding on the beet root wore abundantly destroyed. Various such
parasites have been known to produce epidemics in insects.
A tribe called Oafusos has sprung
up in Brazil from crossing between
the long, stiff-haired natives and the
imported negro slaves. The admixture of such extremes has produced
extraordinary hair, which rises perpendicularly in close curly masses,
and forms an enormous wig.
Meat Sweetness.—Prof. Gustav
Ciehring states that 5,038,000,000
pounds of cane sugar and 5,588,-
000,000 pounds of beet sugar are
produced annually: All plants contain sugar, but only four others, the
sugar palm of the Indies, the maple
tree, the sorghum, and the sugar
com—are at all used industrially for
its extraction; and from these four
the total quantity of sugar obtained
is comparatively insignificant.
Thunder.—According to M. Hirn,
the column of air suddenly heated
and expanded by a flash of lightning —proiiwirig. the sound known
as thunder **W sonfetimes several
miles long, and as the duration of
the flash is not even a millionth of
a second, it follows that the noise
bursts forth at onco from the whole
column, though for an observer at
any one place it commences where
the lightning is at the least distance.
The beginning of the thunder clap
thus gives us the minimum distance
of the lightning, and the length of
the thunder clap gives us the length
of the column.
Regulation of the Body'b Furnace.—In a paper read before the
American Neurological Association
at Washington, J)r. Isaac Ott showed
by cases uof disease that there are
points in the brain—on the surface
nnd at the base—whose function it
is to preside over and keep constant
tlio heat of the body, He mentioned recorded cases of a bodily
temperature as high as 128° ¥.,
explaining how nervous disease may
produco such great changes. He
described fever as a disease of the
nervous system chiefly, resulting in
increased chemical change in the
bodily tissues, with consequent ele
vation of temperature.
Muscle for the Ocean Ferry.
—In his address as president of the
British Association for the Advancement of Science, Sir Frederick
Bramwell considered the elevating
influence of prime movers as a substitute for hand labor requiring no
intelligence, and said: " Compare a
galley, a veuel propelled by oan,
with tho modern Atlantic liner; und
first let us assume that prime movers
are lion existent and that this vessel
is to be propelled galley-fashion.
Take her length as somo COO feet,
and assume that placo be found for
as many as four hundred oars on
each side, each oar worked by three
men, or 2400 men; and allow that
six mon under these conditions
could develop work equal to 1 h, p.,
wo should have -100 li. p. Double
the number of men, and we should
have 800 h. p., with 4800 men at
work, and at least the same number
in reserve if tlio journey is to bo
continuous. Contrast the puny result thus obtained with the 19,500
ll. p. given forth by n large prime
mover of the present day, suoh u
power requiring on the above inorlo
of calculation, 117,000 men nt work
nnd 117,000 in reserve; anil these to
be carried in a vessel less thm 600
feot long, Even if it were possible
to carry this number of men in sueli
a vessel, by no conceivable means
could their power be utilized so as to
impart to it a speed of 20 knots au
hour. This illustrates how a prime
mover may not only be a mere substitute for muscular work, but may
afford tho means of attaining an end
that could not by any possibility be
attained by muscular exertion, no
matter what money was expended
or what galley-slave sufleringwas inflicted.
1'. M, Markell, West Jeddoro, N. S„
writes: "I wish to inform you of the
wonderful qualities of Dr. Thomas' Kolee-
trio Oil. 1 had n hone io lame that he
could scarcely walk} the trouble was in
the knee; anil two or three applications
completely cured him."

Sitsrdiv Evening. Oct. 13. 1881.
The Empire it boing taken to task
by a portion of tho eastern press for
persisting in publishing Mr. Wiman's
volunteered disclosures on the progress of commercial and political
union in tho II. S. senate, after he
had sent another telegram requesting
the withdrawal of the first. Tho
Empire's critics, of whom there are
also some in thil province, maintain
that the action of that paper was
unjust to Mr. Wiman, on tlio
grounda that he hnd been mistaken
or rather misled whon he telegraphed
tbe information to tho press of Canada; but, as Mr. Wiman said that
" information had reached him of a
reliable character," no doubt tho
the Empire (from its own knowledge
of tho circumstances) believed that
the information was reliable, and
concluded that the public should
know what was going on in the
secret chambers of the senate committee with regard to the ultimate
destiny of Canada. This agitation,
whioh is very much affecting the
peace and prosperity of the whole
Dominion, should not be looked upon
as a party political question, and although the Empire may be the organ of a political party in Canada,
and from a party standpoint may
have been only too willing to publish
what the opposing party would have
preferred to keep secret, wo still
maintain that the Empire acted in
the public good by publishing wlut
appears to have been substantially
the truth, if Mr. Wiman's own judgment be "reliable'' in such matters.
In upholding the Empire in this
matter, wo do not by any means
endorso all that the Empire may do
and say on that or any other subject. Political organs and papers,
and individuals, that tako sides in
party polities aro obliged to say and
do many things contrary to, or beyond their own convictions, but
sometimes they may be in the right
and may serve tho public interests,
intentionally or unintentionally, as
in the preient instance. Mr. Wiman, it ia true, is Canadian born,
and although he has lived long in
the United States and amassed a
fortune in business without becoming an American citizen, he may,
nevertheless, be working in this
matter more in the the interest of
America than of hit native country.
" Where the treasure is there will
the heart be also," is pretty true of
every relation in life. The Columbian's attitude on this as on other
questions is taken from a perfectly
unbiased and impartial standpoint,
with a sincere desire to get at the
truth of the matter, for the truth's
lake and in the public interest.
The Columbian does not care three
straws for any party, nor for the
opinions, public or private, of any
party disciple, uve in so far aa they
may contain a modicum of truth
which cap. be sifted from the chaff
ot party prejudice and lop-sidedness.
and Von Moltko as instruments to
form the German Empire. It appeals that the crown prince was
imbued with the idea of tho feasibility of the foundation of the (Ionium
Empire by his father-in-law, the
Prince Consort of England, and it
may be taken for granted that the
Princess Royal of England, who had
been carefully instructed in politics
by her father, gave her husband
full sympathy and support. Anything nobler was never recorded of a
prince than that, while conducting
a groat and successful campaign and
while planning an empire which
should result from it, his chief
thought was how best and soonest
to establish liberal, constitutional
and responsible government in that
empire. That was to havo been his
life work. It would seem u misfortune for Germany, says au exchange,
that the Emperor William did not
die within a year of his triumph at
Versailles. His work was then
done, and his presence on the scone
hindered, if it did not altogether
prevent, the work of a far greater
' man. That the real founder of tho
empire and one who had such magnificent plans, should have only
reigned a couple of months, and that
in n dying condition, seems inscrutable. Had he been prevented By
intrigue from ascending the throne
at all, the people of Germany might
well have been driven into revolution
by the revelations of the diary,which
would have showed the extent of
the ingratitude of his son William
and Bismarck who, it is suid, were
not unwilling thnt Frederick should
abdicate. As is natural, the publication of this diary, with the disclosures it makes, has arousod the
ire of Bismarck (whose prestige has
been hurt) and his political supporters, who declare that it is a forgory.
In tlie excess of their indignation
thoy cvon descend to vilification of
tlie late Emperor Frederick, Bismarck has obtained the consent of
Emperor William to prosecute the
publishers of tlio paper publishing
tlio diary, for revealing state secrets
(although if they are forgeries it is
difficult to see how they can be considered state secrets), and an interesting time is expected.
The Proprietors of Parmolec's Pills are
constantly rccoiving letters similar to
the following, winch explains itself,
Mr. John A. Beam, Waterloo, Out,,
writes: "I never used any medicine that

The relief experienced aftor using them
was wonderful." As a safe family medicine Parmelee's Vegetable Pills can be

Ayer's Sarsaparilla has effected, in our

The late Emperor Frederick is
spoken of by his well-earned and universally conceded title ol Frederick
the Good. He bids lair to go down
to posterity as Frederick tho Great
also, If the extracts recently published by a German newspaper as
portions of the Emperor Frederick's
diary be authentic, ai they have
every appearance of being, a revelation regarding the foundation of the
German Empire has been made
whioh will cause a revolution in the
ideas of all men as to the importance
of the actors in thut great scene at
Versailles. The Emperor William,
Prince Biimarek and Count Von
Moltke have not only been represented sb tho chief actors, but their'a
have almost been regarded as the
only wills which brought abont the
drama. During the nearly two decades that have elapsed since that
time they have had all the credit
due to men who hive welded separate states into a mighty empire.
There can be no doubt had it not
been for the sagacity and dignity of
the Emperor William, tlie energy,
determination and diplomacy of
Prinoe Bismarck,the army-constructing and strategical powers of Von
Moltke, that the Gorman Empire
would not to-day have existed. But
it is none the less true, if the diary
extracts be true, that had it not been
for tho lofty wisdom and firmness of
the Emperor Frederick, then Grown
Prinoe of Prussia, the empire would
not have been formed. King William was not only opposed to the attempt being made at that time, but
it appears that he had no confidence
in th. project; he did not regard it
at feasible, and was satisfied to be
King of Prussia. Prince Bismarck
wm afraid that th. South German
•tatea, and especially Bavaria, would
throw themselves into the arms of
Austria rather than come into the
German Empire. Count Von Moltke
had no opinion, The crown prinoe,
It appears, after arguing with Prince
Biimarek in vain, aisumed an authoritative manner and compelled
th. chancellor to act. There have
bean thou who have regarded Frederick u an amiable, well meaning,
but rather weak man. It il a revelation even to those who knew
that he wai a strong man to find
that he bent the will of the man of
blood and of iron to hii purpoie and
that he possessed the master mind

which might never have cone again,

Graphic Description of a Creature Whose
Power To Destroy Is Awful.
There are eight varieties of him {tho
fer de-lance), the most common being the
gray speckled with black, precisely tho
color that enables the monster to hide
himself among the roots of the tree by
simply coiling about them aud concealipg
hist;'.angular head.
Sometimes ho la a beautiful flower
yellow; then ho mny never be distinguished from tho hunch of bright bananas among which he bang*-coiled, or he
may be a dark yellow, or a yellowish
brawn, or tho color of wine lees speckled
with pink and black, or a perfect ash tint,
or black wlih a yellowish belly, or black
with a rose belly—all hues of tropical
mould, of old bark, of putrefying trees, of
forest detritus.
Tic Iris of the eye Is orange, with red
flashes; nt night it glows liko incandescent charcoal.
A.id the fer-de-lance reigns absolute
kin-; over the mountains and the ravines;
he Is lord of the forests nud tlie solitiulus
by day, and hy night he extends his dominion over tho public roads, tlie familial*
paths, the pirks, tho pleasure resorts.
Peoplo must remain at homo after dark
unless they dwell in tlio city itself: if you
happen to he out visiting after sunset,
only a mile from town, your friends will
caution you anxiously not to follow the
boulevard as you go back, and to keep ns
closely as possible to the very centre of
the path.
Even ln the brightest moon you cannot
venture to enter the woods unescorted;
you cannot trust your eyes to detect danger; at any moment a seeming branch, a
knot of lianas, a pink or gray root, n
clump of pendent yellow fruit, may suddenly take life, writhe, swell, (-cratch,
spring, strike.
Then you will need u'd iudeed.and most
quickly; for within tho space of 11 few
heart-beats the stricken flesh eh ills, tumefies, softens, changes eclor, .spots viola*

through all the blood. If the j-hyslr-tau or

SUNDAY WORK IN GERMANY.

Busy Seven Days a Woek,
The extent to whioh Sunday labor is
carried on in Germany, as Bhowu In a report of the United States consul at Lelp*
•le, will probably surprise even thoso
who have hitherto observed tho tendency
In this direct!op.
In tbe Prussian districts, from whioh
tbe fullest returns were obtained, it appears that of 500,156 establishments, employing 1,582,591 hands, 289,031 establishments are kept opeu on Sundays, and
668,027 of the hands are employed on that
day, the percentage of establishments
kept open being 57.75, and tho percentage
of employes workiug on Sunday 42.25.
In trade and transportation the report
shows that 77 per cent, of the establishments are kept open and M por cent, of
the hands employed.
It wonld, of course, be Interesting to
knowwhatcorrespondence there has been
between seven-day labor and tbe production and trade of the empire for a series
ot years.
The attempt to dlspenso with one day
of rest In every seven days has often been
made ln the past, bnt never with success,
although a temporary advantage has
been gained in Increased production. Inferior workmanship, however, has been
sure to follow, and it is doubtful if Germany's experiment In the face ot the experience of tho world Will ultimately sue-

grandfather. He's broken so ninny

But tho boy hesitated, and ilowly said:

For a number ot months I wu
troubled with Coetlveness, in consequence of whioh I suffered from Lou of
Appetite, Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled me. I wis
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, was unable to bear exposure to the light. I was entirely

Alox. Cameron, a Rock Creek miner,
arrived in this city yesterday from the
interior and brings the latest news concerning the Rock Creek mines. He
says the ledges nre undoubtedly rich
and will pay woll when developed, but
as the capital necessary for working
the claims could not be obtained the
majority of the miners have been
forced to turn their attention elsewhere
for the present. Thero aro now only
12 miners on Rock Creek. The discovery of a very rich silver quartz ledgo
within a short distance of Keremeos
haa caused great excitement among tho
prospectors and a rush is now being
made for that vicinity. The ledge discovered is 14 feet wide aud gives promise of wonderful richness. An effort
will be made to secure the necessary
cnpital for its immediate development.
Good News.
An official report from the Walworth
settlement last night brings the good
news that all real danger from the
small-pox is at an end. The patients
whose lives were still in danger when
the laat report was sent iu have now
passed the critical period, nnd arson
the fair road to recovery. No new
cases have developed, and, with the
exception of two, the patients are convalescent. Mrs. Van Luren, the lady
who has worked so heroically for the
afflicted family, and who it was feared
would be attacked by the disease, has
recovered her health and bravely sticks
to her dangerous post. Dr. McLean
and Mr. James Ellard arc in good
health and feel confident they have
the epidemic under full control. Apart
from the precautions taken by the government the municipality of Surrey
has enforced strict quarantine and
there is little or no ehance of the
disease spreading beyond Ihe Walworth settlomont.
A Melancholy Accident.
Several weeks ago a miner at Toad
mountain named J. Armstrong, and
two friends went out hunting for cariboo, They separated, and one of the
party shortly afterwards saw what he
supposed to the head of a cariboo and
fired. It was Armstrong, however,
who fell forward, having been killed
instantly. His friend had mistaken
the brown fur felt hat and check shirt
of poor Armstrong for a cariboo and
killed him. This sad occurrence took
place ton miles from camp, to which
the dead man was conveyed and buried
amidst general mourning. The deceased was about 3D years old, and a magnificent specimen of manhood, tall and
broad-shouldered and of a kindly disposition. He was respected by all who
came in contact with him. Ho was a
lumberman by trade, and originally
came from eastern Canada, though he
hnd worked for many years in Michigan, and lately nt Colville, W. T. He
hud heen prospecting during tho summer, and nt tho time of his death was
engaged in getting out timber and
waking shingles for tho house being
built in camp.—Colonist.

(From an Occasional Correspondent.)
British Columbia soon becomes home
to one who lives there, Tho scenes of
other hinds have no power to efface
from the mind her scenes of beauty
and grandeur. At the mention of her
name the mind flies back across the
vast prairies, scales tho stupendous
Rockies, rushes through the mighty
canyons of the Casoades, descends her
slopes to the shoies washed by tho
waters of tho great heaving Pacific,
and thoro feels the kiss of the warm
breezo thnt comes with reviving power
to her resplendent vales. In thought
those vales are walked again, while on
every hand tho snow-capped towers
stand liko giant sentinels to guard tho
enchanting land. Those thoughts
arose when British Columbia's exhibit
was spoken of by Toronto papers, But
the picture faded as tho exhibit was
aeon. The exhibit may hnvo been all
right; but it did not represent British
Columbia. Thero is n mystery in regard lo that even yet, after much
study and thought. Tho impression
was that Vancouver is a big place. Tho
puzzle is to oxplain the phenomena of
its rapid growth. It may be that all
tho people who formerly lived outside
of the oity, in other parts of the province have moved into the eity; or, if
not, then the oitizens must have extended the city limits bo as to inolude
the whole country. If it be the latter
way, tho first hint that the outside
world had was at Toronto's show.
Neither of these satisfy, for New Westminster must still exist as a separate
institution, because she was represent*
ed by twenty-four bottles of lager beer,
Well, what about the beer ? It looked
so lonely after coming so far, the effect
was depressing. Several bottles had
wandered from their weeping companions as If seeking protection. Or, maybe,
some sympathetic visitor tried to console them and forgot to put them back.
That infant industry should have beon
provided with a special nurse by the
city fathers. It was also in stone
bottles, and could not be seen. Were
there no glaas bottles, or was it too
poor to show ? Visitors wero warned
not to touch it. It could not bo seen
or tasted, only smelt, and it smelt like
ratz. If the exhibitor had been liberal and had sent a few hundred bar*
rels with taps and glasses the effect on
tho visitors' spirits might have been
very different. But, as it was, the effect was very sad and depressing. There
is no doubt in some minds but what
Vancouver was trying to boom at New
Westminster's expense. There wore
twenty-four cans of salmon by Ewen tt
Co.; but these were put up six miles
from the city. If Vancouver is the
Phumix that rose from her own ashes
she cannot hinder .No**;.[Westminster
from being-What she isdestined to be.
Her' inherent vitality is even now
manifesting itself by breaking the
shackles which may havo bound her in
tho past, and she will soon dii turns Irate
to the woild tlmt she in a city on a hill
and cannot be hid. She sits on the
fairest spot of tho queen province of
the Dominion, nnd oven Van Homo
cannot outwit or crush her. Even now
her doors are opening to tho commerce
of China, India, and the great republics stretching across two continents to
tho south. Those who are intercs ed
in Toronto's great show, and did not
see it, will have already learned from
the daily papers, that it was a success.
They have reported it well, and it is
not necessary to attempt to describe it
in a letter. But, it* 'justjee to New
Westminster, it seemed necessary to
say something. She can show more
than twenty-four bottles of beer if
Bhe tries. A Visitor.
Our correspondent, who is a former
and well-known British Columbian,
adds the following in a privato note,
which we take the liberty of publishing :
It seemed as if the Vancouver people
were trying to gobble up everything
and boom their own town at the expense of New Westminster. There
are others who do not think all was
fair. I went to Toronto's fair mainly
to see what B. O. sent, but was disappointed to find things as they were.
Vancouver had a very nicely written
pamphlet which was scattered around
among the exhibits. Vancouver waa
written in bold letters across the cover
and it would naturally lead many to
think many of the things which were
not labelled were from that city. Fruit
that never grew in Vancouver had
these looks alongside of it. Fair play
is all right, but I do not believe this
was, Minerals marked Vancouver
were shown, but surely they must
havo been from Vancouver Island.
Police Court.
Ilefore T.O. Atkinson, P.M., and P. MoTiernan, J. V.
Capt. George, a Harrison river Indian, wus charged with being drunk
within tho city limits. The captain is
a nnted character and has long held
the honored position of special con
stable and detective to tho various Indian tribes along the river. Goorge
wus also noted for sobriety and a general horror for anything in tho shape
of strong drink, but in a weak moment
the tempter induced him to indulge in
a glass of beer, and now ho mourns the
loss of self-respect and good character.
The captain udmitted being drunk, but
said he had only taken four glasses of
beor and six glasses of whisky—a moat
moderate allowance in his opinion.
Considering the previous good character of the nccuaed thn court imposed
the small fino of $10 which was
promptly paid.
John Donough, chargod with supplying intoxicants to Indians, pleaded not
guilty. The evidence adduced clearly
proved that Donough was guilty of the
aot charged, and, despite his protestations of innocence he was ordered to
pay a fine of 912.60 or go to jail for 14
days. John decided it would be more
profitable to servo 14 days than pay
the fino.
Annie, a Harrison river Indian woman, eh&rged with being drunk, pleaded guilty and was fined 85.
Johnny, a Fort Langley Siwash was
charged with having an intoxicant in
his possession, but as the evidence
against htm was not conclusive the
case was dismissed,
