In the Dumfries Sheriff Oourt
recently n case from Sanquhar,
arising out of a novel form of school
punishment, was heard. David
Hamilton, blacksmith, pleaded
guilty to assaulting T. G, Salmon,
schoolmaster, for having punished
two children of his by causing the
boy to put on the girl's pinafore and
the girl tlio boy's junket, aud so
exposing them to the ridicule of the
school. Tlio sheriff thought tho
punishment was both novel and
improper, and having regard to the
provocation, ho imposed a line of
10s.—th.      	
France, Austria, nnd Germany
have adopted smokeless gunpowder
for iheir armies, and aro conducting
experiments to get an explosive also
as nearly noiseless ns possible. A
fair degree of success lias been
reached, and experts hnvo no doubt
that by the time the nest European
war begins, the smoke u ml noise of
battle will have been clone away
with. It is allegod that die French
will sutler most by thi.;, an the men
of that nation are least able to withstand the torroriziiH;' effect of boing
mewed down by silent, missiles from
unseen enemies.
On tlio ile.y after the death of
the crowii' princo of Austniu, it
Vicuna undertaker was ordered to
have ah oat coffin readyfor uso at
tlie palace that samo day. He asked
for moro timo, but wns told that it
must be thero beforo night.
Enquiry doveloped tho fact that it
is it custom of the llapsburgs
always to have n coffin in the house.
The oak coffin ill which tho body of
tho crown princo lay was one that
had been made years before, after
the death of one of his relations,
and had waited for an occupant
ever Bince. Tho new coffin is now
waiting.
A young farm servant at Wilmington, U. S., came to an untimely
ond tho other day. Ho was opening
a chicken-coop, and was unfortunately shot by a Bpi'ing gun which
hail been arranged by the propiiotor
for the benefit of possiblo marauding thioves. It may bo well to
indicate to Canadian farmers that it
is illegal to seta "man trap" or a
spring gun. No doubt it is vexing
to loso chickens, but the mnn who
lixes n piece of machinery to shoot
lliievei lays himself open, by our
law, to ,t charge of manslaughter,
should his oontrivanco prove effectual.—Mail.
One of the most shocking, as well
its treacherous outrages evor perpetrated in tho South Seas wns that
of the murder of tho government
agent, Mr. Armstrong, by tho
natives of Mnnobn, the details of
which hnvo just been leceivetl in
this country. Mr. Armstrong wns
decoyed on shore, and then treacherously murdered. One of the chiefs
feigning to be ill, Mr, Armstrong
went on shore with a lotion to apply
to the injury. Ho had only one
nativo servant with him. They
wore attacked. The native escaped,
but poor Mr. Armstrong was butchered to death by spears and tomahawks. His comrades in a small
boat endeavored to recover the body,
but wore unsuccessful. It was afterwards ascertained that tho tiondish
natives ehopped off tho hoad and
log. of the unfortunate agent, and
carried them around to tho various
ohiofs of the island. It is said that
the outrage was committed in
retaliation for tho killing of somo of
tho islanders by tho crew of tho
"Young Dick," nnd thnt tho head
and legs of Mr. Armstrong were
thrown to tho chiefs who hud lest
men in thu "Young Dick" affray,
It was not stated whut subsequently
became of tho head and logs of the
governmentngent, but it was sail
that tlio body wns thrown by tho
natives into the sea,—Ex.

It wm only the otber day that the
despatches contained accounts of
terrific mow storms in several of the
eutern states. Here, we have been
enjoying spring-time since the beginning of February (striotly speaking though we have had no winter
during the past so called winter
tesuon.t all), and now, the first
week in April, we are luxuriating
in veritable June weather. The

attempting to make hit "bucking'
Pegasus clear an iambio pentameter

landscape in blank verte, but are
obliged to mutilate both in cold and
unfeeling prose. These considerations, together with the melancholy
''(ate of our. "spring poet," have
caused us up to date to refrain
from letting our thousands of reader, know how thoroughly and heart-
' lljr we endorse the weather, etc.
But it is almost too beautiful to lut

we must say something, or—"bust"
Having in view the fate, ef our

begin with about .five-foot strip of
the horizon and work down, tort of

the way round, it decidedly antra—
the regulation "Italian" tint. The
mountains are a deep bine—not the
color of "blue pills" or "blue devilt,"
but a cheerful, sunny ultramarine.
The trees and the underbrush, jutt

On the refusal of the Dominion
authorities to disallow the Jesuits'
Estates Act, the Evangelical Alliance memomlized her majesty the
queen, setting forth that the federal
government had failed to do its duty,
and asking the queen to interfere on
behalf of the Protesta.ntt«f Canada.
This'wai an nnwarrirH-tile and
rather foolish action, and the reply
of Lord Knntatord, secretary of state
for the colonies, In regard to tho
memorial, wu juit about what might
have been looked for. Lord Knuts-
ford uid the matter ratted entirely
with the Oanadian government, to
whom the memorial would be forwarded. An • eutern cofemporary
hu the following sensible remarks
on the tubjeot: "It hu been clear
all .along that whatever the upshot
of the Jesuit affair may be, it must
be settled among ourselves, that is,
if it il settled without being earned
to the privy council and treated like
any other intricate point of law.
Canada enjoyi self-government, and
the British parliament has no desire
to interfere in our affairs. It is
better that our people should occasionally make mistakes while enjoying the right of self-government than
that their legislation ihould be subjected to overhauling at the hands
of the Britiih authorities. The
Jesuit affair is one which concerns
Canada alone, and as Canada has a
{larliament of her own to deal with
t there is no reason, why officials on
the other, aide of the ocean should
interfere in the matter one way or the
other. They could not do so without
arousing the hostility of a large section of our people, and if they pleased the Protestant element to-day by
duallowing the Jeiuit Act, they
might displease it to-morrow, when
■ome other question arose. Let us
■ettle our own difficulties in our own
way, and not be, as Mr. Blake once
put it, subjeoti of the queen's subjects. Enjoying responsible government there is no reason for carrying
our diffioultiei to another country
when we have the power to settle
them ourselves." The .bove is sound
reasoning from a constitutional and
political standpoint irrespective altogether of tho morality or immorality of the objectionable measure,
or the desirability of having it
quathed, The British privy oouncil
comes in very good for settling
knotty point, of constitutional law
between the federal and provincial
authoritiet, and, so far, hu invariably upheld provincial right! in such
contests, so that the Evangelical
Alliance wu on the wrong tide of
the fence to expect redress from that
quarter, even if the subject had been
a proper one for imperial interference. No, we have ooniiderable
parliamentary machinery, and let us
uttle u many of our difficulties as
possible on this side of the "big
drink."

dJWOly JNOSES MADE TO ORDER,
Warranted to Hold Their Color
and to Wear Forever.
Tho Art of Molting- Artificial I'r.ra, Fingers, Teoth and Soft Palates Discussed
by One ot Its Host Export and
' Experienced Exponents.
"Tho discovery of xylonito has market! an
crn of improvement in tho art of making
falao noocs," said a noted Chicago doctor,
who supplies unfortunate peoplo with artificial proboacidea whon accident or tho ravages of diaoaso havo removed that very
prominent foaturo, to a Mall roporter.
"Beforo that time," ho continued,
had to mnko noses out of rubber and paint
thom to tho right color. Rubber ia not a
flesh color, and when tho paint began to
Bcalo off tho off eet was not at all good. A
rummy noso was a beauty bosido ono that
needed n now coat of paint. But xylonite
can bo mado to tako color vory easily, and
wc gat it in all shades of pink, to correspond with tho tint of the faco. It is light
and very hard. It is almost impo3siblo to
break it. Seo hore," and bo took a blank of
ih : material and daubed on tho door with
ali hia might. It was not in tbo least affected.
' For **, uo^o," said tho repairer of facial
dainagoe, "wbiflnd. out which way tho flesh,
on l bier 1 nc to naturally curved. Tlioro isn't:
i; man Ih lug, I suppose, whoso iios'jwns exactly in the middle of bis face. AVe Und out
from hiii friends what bis proper uppoar
unco was, and then wo malio a wax model
as noar like lifo as wo can. A plaster east)
is mado of tho model, and thon tho blank
xylonito is boated so as to soften it and!
pressed into tho mold by au Arcblmidoanj
screw. That forces it into tho proper place.
It is then polished up and attached either to
springs on a sponge cut button-shapo so it
will crowd into tho cavity and hold on with
enough forco to keep it from falling out. If
tho flush shall havo become sunken around
tho noso so much as to causo tho eyes toi
havo a staring look, spectacles aro worn toi
offset It. Of course, you understand that this
is not a practicable nose, as tho stage car*
pentor would say. It is for looks only.
Methuselah couldn't havo worn out sueh a
nose. It will last forever, and ".hut's us long
as any ono would want If midthoold doe-
tor chuckled at bis joko, •' A body wants toj
be careful how he goes into artmgh-aad-tum-
A MARVELOUS  BLIZZARD.
It limit ii Hoof or Ico nnd  Shut AVunder-
ers In IVoin the Storm.
"I was driving a buncb of cattlo from
Yankton lo Dcadwood," cald tho blizzard
export of tho Wow Orleans Tthat-Ikvixret,
"when wo saw signs of trouble ouo afternoon and mado for timber. Wo wero
luoky enough to strike a grovo of cotton-
woods boforo night, and soon had the -stock
in tho center of the grove. In the couplo
of hours loft boforor-dnrk wo fell to with
our axes and chopped down all tho trees wo
could, leaving them lio whoro thoy foil and
throwing tlio small branches lo the cattle.
■*V;'o builtnroaring flro, but tho wind
rose i.o high two of us had to stand by end
watch tho blazo all tho timo, while tho
other six whacked away at the cotton-
woods for dear life. Every tree would bo
blown down by tho wind beforo it was cut
more than halfway through, and wo hud
trouble in gotting tbo timber to full in u
circle arouud us nnd tho stock, which was
our object. But by nine o'clock wo wero
pretty well hemmed in, and tho enow,
whicli fell so fast it blinded you tea root
away from tho Are, quickly gathered on tho
limbs and dry leaves of our bulwark and
built a big, wtiito wall around uo, which
grew at last thick enough to shut out tho
gale entirely,
"There wore two hi;,* cotton woods, regular graiiddaddlos, iu the middle of iho tjr-
ral. Tlianiowgattiored ro thick en them
that they noon covered ur, like a real roul*.
und thoro wn.woro roofed iu nnd wailed in,
with our forty head of cattlo, as secure ua
if there wasn't a blizzard in the whole of
Dakota. And wo didn't have to wait Ing
el'.hor, for boforo morning the atom bad
turned into a regular blizzard, tlio famous
one of IflTU that frozo so many frontlorainou
and so muoh stock to death.
'•Boforo wo rolled into our blankets by
tbe lire it was clovon o'clock,, nnd tho wind,
which had blown at lirst from tho E--.it,
shifted uround to tbo Northwest and began
to roar liko n thousand stamp mills. En,!*!,
timo it shifted it banked our barricade
deeper and higher with snow, and by midnight wo couldn't seo over it. Tbo'oattle
huddled togothor under tho troe right noxt
to us. Thoy cbowod away at tho cotton-
wood as contented as you please. Tholr
warm breath mado a distinct cloud that
HC<:inod to hang around in tho two big trees
over the corral as if It woro too solid to bo
blown away. At this timo tho wind scorned
lo havo boen absolutely walled out from us;
we could hoar it high ovorhead, but wo
bio flght witb one"of thcmoulus'iaco, forliel 'b'dn't fool so much as on eddy.  I must con-
might got hia iioso knocked off.  He ought leMthutitgavomosomoalarmto boo tho
to holler: 'Here, you juBt wait a .spell till ij
put iny nose in my pocket.'"
" Do you ovor make artitluul outer
ears?"
" Nover had a call for ono yet, Thoy
could be made all right, but t, insert one
would bo to destroy tho hearing, which
would- bo too dear a price to pay for the
whlstto.
"Fingers and hands,though, are often
made. Tboy aro tho hardest things to get
right. Thoy aro mado of tho aamo material
—xylonito. Thojointaof tho wriat and Angers aro mado in what mechanics call thej
universal' joint. You often seo peoplo on
the atreet who always wear u glovo on ono
hand. That Is their nrtiflcinl hand. >'hc'
wcll-mado hand can cloao up the fingers so
that articles can bo -ioid almost as seem 'y,
as with the natural hand. Usually only cue j
articulation is mado In the fingers, as it is
very tedious to put in tho two joints. Aril*
ik-i-r foot I havo nover mado for patients,
I'-tluagh thoy would bo much easier than
iirtiflcial hands.
" Hero is something which might interest
wh-hi barricades all around ua growing to
bo in tall as tho tree-tops apparently.
" How long wo slopt I never know. Most
I blizzards last three days and nro worso on
tbo second. Whon wo woko up tho stock

wasn't u specie of snow visible on tho trees
or groan*!. Overhead, resting on tin top.-, of
thocottonwoods and curving down to tho
tops of the barricades wo had built and tho
storm had strengthened,was a conical roof of
solid ico that shut us in as completely from
tho storm that waged outsido as if wo woro
in a stone castlo. Tho boa1: of'.ho flro and ex
halations from the closely bunched steers
had surrounded us with a warm atmosphere,
whicli molted tho Ico In tho air aa fast as li

PANTHERS AT  LARGE.
Exciting Scene la One of tho Famou-f
Parks or Madras.
Two panthers recently escaped from confinement, and woro for a short timo at
largo In tho People's Fark, Madras, Mr.
Ellis, superintendent of tho park, found
oho of thom up a largo acacia tree, crouch-
nine regret from our wonderful corral.
That wah tho worst blizzard known in tho
West sinco'oil, wo heard along our way to
peudu'ood.   But wo didn't fool uny of it."
UNPLEASANT  PEOPLE,
Unt'oi-luimtes Who Aro Constant!}' !>oiii*j
tho Wi-on-f Thing.
They como liko a whirlwind aud they go
aa thoy como, Bays tho Loudon Quce.i. In
their prcsouco nil things fly, and tho luws
of cohesion and gravitation aro of no more
account than those ol ordor and prearranged
harmonies. When thoy como into a room
it te no if thoy brought with then a train of
stielcs and straws and a cloud of dust, like
the disjecta membra seen on tho outside of
a whirlpool. Thoy upset chairs and thoy
knock down ornaments; thoy put their hats
pn* the flowers iu tho vase, and thoy fling
tholr stick;- nnd umbrellas nmong tho Venetian glass. Thoy stumble ovor the hoad of
tho tiger-akin on tho floor, carrom against
rickety tables, mistuko tho mask of tho
looking-gla33 for a praoticablo door, sot
their teacups on tho boat-bound books,
crumble thoir buttered cake on the Pcrsiun
carpet; call Mrs. Brown, whom you wIbIi to
propitiato, Mrs. Smith, of whom she is tho
mortal enemy; contradict your favorite
philosopher, who Is accustomed too respectful nudienco in your houso; ond throw
scalding water over your friend, tho poet's
lust production, with bis wifo sitting lu
wrath aud amazement, grimly listening to
this blasphemous stream pouring headlong
from thoso uncontrollable lips,
When thoy greet you it Is uullko the greeting of any ouo else. Thoy disdain tho conventional formula and ask how you aro In
other words than thoso for tho most part
used. .Sometimes thoy do not ask at all, but
dash into tho room with thoir breezy ways
und ilast-laden atmosphere and break out
Ing on a thick branch. Ho wont (says tho -,v--h aWt 0f news thoy think will IntoroBt
Madras Moil) within thirty yards of tho you tn hoar. "I'vo como to toll you of my
trco, took aim and fired, bitting tho animal ainncrntMrB. Bo-and-SD'H," thoy say In a
juat abovo the left  shoulder. Tho shot'---■ -   •• •      	
proved fatal, and down dropped tho animal
dead. Boeing that tho animal had boon
billed, and not knowing that a second
panther was at largo, tho people who had
taken rofugoon tho trees jumped down,
aud all crowded round the doad panther
ami belabored It with thoir clubs and
sticks. Mr. Ellis thon reloaded his lillo
and went into tbo inclosuro, directing
tho park sergeant to follow him.
Mr. Ellis saw tho seoond panther
outsido tho.cage; so ho called out to the
peoplo to beware, and thoy immediately
ru:bed about outsido tho inclosuro,
^shouting. Mr. Ellis thon ran after tho
panther, which, instead of going into tho
cage, rushod away. Finding that it was
making Its way towards tho bridgo loading
to tho island whore tho monkeys aro kept,
and where a number of peoplo had taken
rcfugo in the treos, Mr. Ellis made his way
thither across tho kangaroo enclosure Iu a
(Erection opposite to that in wliich llio
paui-hor woo waning. Ho got within forty
yard:of the beast and halted. Ho thon
fired. Tho panther was wounded, though
not mortally, and, growling with rago,
rushed straight nt Mr. Ellis and knocked
him down. It then wont away again to*
wiirdii tho rhinocores pond, ran round tho
cage, and again mado for Mr, Ellis, who
hod regained bis foot, but was not prepared
for thcnttu'i'k. The pauthor seiz-cd hiin by
tho right foot and bit hfm severely on tlio
ankle, After calling loudly for help, Mr
Ellis atruck the panther with the butt ond
of bin riflo, stunning It. Tho wounded
nntmal lay against the wall of ono of tho
eager, groaning with pain, whon a mahout
pltuicd him against tho wall with his spoar,
and tbo sergeant dispatched him with a
bullet..     -_

theso superstitious, howovor; ho know why
hooncozed; he felt tho big draft tbat was
(n th-J l*rldcgvo9W's pockst* '
voico which would mnko Itself heard through
the fog as dourly as tho horn or tho steam
wblstlo. "Havo von hoard that story of
Lady Debt Kuch a good story; you must
hoar it." This is perhaps another profatial
address, tho rest of your friends looking on
in amazement, wondering what can bo the
terms of your acquaint unco with this free
and easy person whom thoy do not knowj
but who seems to know you so remarkably
woll.
Then, if thoy nro women, they are suro to
dress themselves tn a manner to make you
winco In prlvuto and to attract all oyes in
public Thoy do something queer with
their heads; wear tholr hats in an unauthorized fashion; put on startling colors; tio
hugo silk handkerchiefs about their shoulders - handkerchiefs as big and polychromatic as Joseph's coat; woar go wns that trail
a yard In tho dust, or that are so short ono
speculates on tho color or tholr "clocks"; or
in i:ome way manage to mako themselves
the object of every one's amazed attention,,
Then they hnvo fulfilled tho renson of theirt
being, and uro happy In proportion.

Hon. Mr. Tupper stated to an Empire representative recently that he
had brought to his attention the repre
sunUliona of the salmon packers on
tbe Fraser liver, relative to limiting
the number of boats to 350. 'Last year
he said complaints came from tlio packers on tho Fraser that the liver was
being over-fished-, and that, if regulations wero not adopted to limit the
number of boats, tho industry would
be ruined ; 350 was suggested as the
limit, aud now that the suggestion had
•been acceded to hero came a protest
that somo of the largo packers would
bo ruined if 500 boats, at tlio least,
wero not allowed fcr this naason. He

who is hotter acquainted with the

to tho effect that there was a valley lying between the Columbia and Fraser
rivers capable of supplying a million

All it requires is railway connection to
make it ono cf tho most productive

ciice to the matter came up during the

Orr taking the position that iho transfer of so much of the Province to private control was n matter which should

debts' court at Vancouver, restraining

stimtiimaliiy of the Small Debts Act
is attacked. It is claimed that under
tho B. N. A. Act the powers of appointment of tho judiciary of the different provinces rests solely with the
Dominion government, and that there**
fore tho act of this province is ultra
vires. Tho Small Debts Act is a similar enactment to the "Magistrates
Act," of Quebec, which, ns ie well

We understand that a movement is
on foot for the establishment of reduction works for the smelting of gold
mid silver ores, It is proposed to
form a joint stock compnny, with n
capital of 8100,000 for this purpose.
Several outside capitalists aro interested in the scheme, and we may expect before many months to have the
works in full operation. The discovery
of gold, silver and copper oros on
Texada Island, lias no doubt, been
largely instrumental in causing the
present movement to be set on foot.
Nanaimo has unexcelled facilities for
the establishment of numbers of industrial euterpiiecB, and we believe
that the proposed undertaking is a
most hopeful sign that tlio city is
awakening to a duo sense of its importance ns a future manufacturing
centre We can't havo too many now

Iienred. When arreted the prisoner
md a bottlo of whisky and several parcels of groceries in his possession and
the presonco of these goods probably
