SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
The Swiss Lakes of Ncucliatel
and Bienno liavo yielded more than
19,500 bronze relies of the lake-
dwellers.
Spain furnishes nearly a third of
the world's production of lead. Tho
deposits are extremely numerous,
and the oro is of exceptional purity.
It is suggested that sounds too
high for our oars would be reeorded
by the phonograph, and might be
made audible by reproducing at a
lower speed of the instrument.
For about six years the Eastern
Railway of Franco has used spring
traces on horses employed in shifting
freight cats. Tho-oars start without jerk, with loss fatigue to the
horses mid less injury to the harness than before,.
An international Congress of Geographers is to be hold in Paris during the summer. Notices of the
geographical achievements of each
of their respective countries during
the last hundred years have been
invited from tho geographical societies of the world.
Tho microscope is usually supposed to have been invented iu 1621
by Cornelius Drebbel, a Dutchman;
but M. Govi has found an old book,
published in 1610, which proves
that Galileo must havo originated
this instrument as well as the tele*
scope. Galileo himself seems to
have referred to the microscope
in 1614.
Varieties of Maize.—There ore,
according to Rev. Geo. Henslowe,
more than 100 varieties of maize,
which'differ among themselves more
than thoso of any other cereal.
Some come to maturity in two
months; others require seven. Some
are as many feet high as others aro
in<.'hc3. Some have kernels eleven
times largor than others. They
vary similarly in shape and size of
ears, color of grain, and also in
physical and chemical composition.
Silv mi-Toned Rocks. — Near
Dinan, France, in a picturesque
spot on tho shore of the Arcompound
aro somo boulders of amphibolo (a
compound silicato of iron, tnan-
ganze nnd lime) which aro remark-
nble for the clear silvery sounds
which may be obtained on striking
them with a piece of iron or a fragment of stone. The most sonorous
of the specimens weighs some sov-
cnty-five tons, and from a spur on1
one end may be* mado to emit the
tones of a great bell struck with a
soft mallet. The sound is less from
other parts, and varies in musical
quality to the dull thud. The rocks
appear to have been derived from
nn underlying stratum.
Potent Pills.—Chinese medicines
ure said to be usually very cheap
and vory nasty; but the physicians
have great confidence in the healing
properties of certain precious stones,
which they compound into some
unique ana expensive preparations,
A mixture of white and red coral,
rubies and jacinth, pearls, emeralds,
musk, and one or two earths, all
pulverized and made into pills with
gum and rose-water and ooated with
gold-leaf, is considered an infallible
euro for small-pox, measles, scarlet
fever, and all eruptive diseases. It
is affirmed that men in their death
struggles havo been brought baok to
strength by the wonderful powers
of this extraordinary  prescription.
An Englishman's Suggestion,—
Tho National Museum at Washington having announced an intention
of opening a department for exhibiting balloons and apparatus for traveling in the air, Mr. F. W. Brearey,
Secretary of die Aeronautical Society of Great Britain, questions tho
value of the plan, for the reason
that tho instructive results contained
in unsuccessful models are not
likely to be displayed by the disappointed experimenters. He recom-
monds that Congress endow n committee to conduct experiments upon
the most promising suggestions for
support and propulsion in the air,
believing that such work, under the
auspices of the world-respeclcd
Smithsonian Institution, would bo
the most efl'ective aid thai could lie
rendered toward solving the problems
of aerial navigation.
Nowaok'b Old PitouAiiiLira_.—
Great possibilities lie in the well-
known sensitiveness to slight influences possessed by many plants,
and it was but natural to suspect
such vegetation of some weather-
indicating capabilities. Quite astonishing, however, are the results
lately recorded by Mr. J. F. Nowaok,
an Australian chemist, after three
yean of itudy of a sensitive plant
from tho tropics. The leaves of this
plant are in pain on oppoiite sidei
of the stem, and with varying
atmospheric conditions they describe
many.dill'eront angles and curves,
from which rain, fair or clearing
weather, increasing or decreasing
cloudiness, coming thunderstorms,
earthquakes, winds and even their
form and direction, as woll as riling
and falling temperature, have been
predicted with surprising accuracy
for at lesat two days in advance.
Prof, Weiss, of Prague, has traced
this sensitiveness to a hitherto unknown substance in the cells on tho
upper sido of the leaves.

American vessel bnund from Zanzibar
to Madagascar. Tho Herald has an
editorial headed "Is Germany mad."
The Sim says ''German intrigue Is sim
ply getting ready to throw off its mask.
It is not a question of Germany violating an agreement mado with the U.S.
but that Germany's action infringes
our rights under our treaty with Samoa. It is our business and if we
don't look after it nobody will." Carl
Schurz says: "I don't think there will
be a war. A rupture between two
countries like the U. S. and Germany
would be so serious and disastrous a
thing that one can hardly conceive it
possible, aud 1 do not hesitate to express the opinion that it will surely be
averted by discrete management."

"Jaok the Ripper." Her attempted
assassin was frightened before he had
completed his hellish work and trade
his escape by a rope he improvised by
tying together linen towels he had
found in the bath room where the attack was made. The man was heavy
set, above medium height and with
great strength. He seized his vie ira
by the throat, bound her hands aud
limbs with stout cord and with a
scalpel cut off her hair and inflicted a
deep gash ou the scalp. He hissed between his closed teeth, "I didn't catch
ycu lost night, but to-night you must
die. Ha! lin! You aro in my power
and to-night you must die. 1 will
come lo-morrow and finish the watchman." Ho then began to beat her
bare arms nnd limbs and Miss Eisen*
hart became unconscious. He also
jumped on her and kicked her in the
abdomen. When he first grabbed her
by the throat he asked her for money.
Sho told him she didn't have any, but
gave hiin her valuable gold watch.
No traco of the villain has yet been
obtained.

Washington, Jan. 22.—At this

English tin-plate manufacturers and
merchants to defeat the clause in the
senate tariff bill imposing a duty un
tin plate, nud this sum had been
judiciously placed in tho hands of
lobbyists for that purpose In the
event of the passage of tho bill tho industry will likely be wound up in England and many workers will flock to
this country.

THE UREAT ELECTION IN   F-UMCI.
Paris, Jan. 26,-Tha political excitement continues unabated and It it
reiterated on good authority this morning that the government Is making extensive amngementa to suppress any
outbreak whioh may occur to-morrow,
nnd to maintain order. Any penon
crying "Vive Boulanger" will be summarily nrrested. Detachments of cav•
nlty will patrol tho streets during the
day and night. A last manifesto of
Boulanger posted at an early hour this
morning appears everywhere throughout Paris to day. Opinions as to the
result of tomorrow's election ar*> u
usual divided,,perhaps none.of them is
worth much. The whole department
will poll about 400,000 and of these
not more than 100,000 are properly
conservative and General Boulanger
must therefore draw moro thanauother
10,000 from the republican ranks to
win. It is not clear how he is going
to do it. M. Jacques has the support
of the municipal counoil whioh usually
controlls the radical vote. He too is
a weak candidate; a good man of business but has no political experience. If
General Boulanger be not the man to
attack the republic neither il M.
Jacques the man to defend it. He
was selected as the least likely to offend any body, but he ia too radical.
for the conservatives and too conservative for the extreme radicals. Those
gentlemen are supposed to intend to
play any anarchist's part. What Geo.
Boulanger and frienas say is that the
communists and other reds will voto
for Gen. Boulanger in order to give a
slap in the face, to Mr. Floquet for not
being red enough. That is what in
Franco they call serious politics. It
is politics of the nursery. Most of the
people who dwell in what may be
called foreign quarters of Paris believe
or say Gen. Boulanger will be elected.
Merchants, shop-keepers, bankers and
the amiable old ladies who sell you
papers in Kiosques on the boulevard-
are all of this mind. Republicans
higher up in politics admit the contest
is likely to be close. They predict
Gen. Boulanger will be beaten. There
is much talk of disturbances. Bou*
langists electors there are, I suppose,
people who believe these tales,

THE BAST AFRICAN BILL.
Berlin, Jan. 26.—The debate on
the East Africa bill began in the reichstag this morning. In anticipation of
the event tbe chamber waa crowded
with an eager throng. Count Herbert
Bismarck, foreign secretary of itate,
rose at 11 o'olook to speak upon the
bill. Ho explained the government's
reason for introducing the measure
and urged its passage. Captain Win*
msnn, who had been requested to appear before the reichstag in support of
the bill, then followed the count. He
spoke at length detailing the advantages to be derived from tho measure,
and urged the members of the reichstag
to accept it. He asked the memben
to rely upon his experience regarding
Africa gained in his eight yean wanderings in that country. Prince Bis-
marc!* entered tbe chamber during
Capt. Wissmann's speech and took hll
usual seat. When Oapt. Winmann
had finished speaking, Herr Bamberger
arose and strongly opposed the
measure.
BOULANGER'S   RECEPTION.
Paris, Jan. 26.—Gen. Boulanger
held a continuous reception all day
yesterday. His hotel was thrown open
to the public until late into the night.
Everybody was admitted and the
general had a word for all. Visiton
came singly, in groups and by committee's and deputations from all parts
of the city and suburb*. Many and
various wore the views presented and
requests made. Among the deputations was one from employees who
asked him to use his influenee to bring
about the abolition of registry cflloen
and to obtain pardon for penons who
were imprisoned for having attaaked
and wrecked those offices during the
labor troubles in Paris. Gen. Boulan*
ger replied that the deputation should
not count too much upon his power,
but his sympathy wu efer with the oppressed and he would do ersiything
possible. ^^^_^^^^^

A late number of the Colonist
contained as a supplement the list
of subscribers to tho Jubilee Hospital proposed to be built at Victoria, and also a summing up of tho
amounts collected and the amount
yet required over and above subscriptions to complete the building
according to the original design.
The total amount contributed, according to the above mentioned list,
is $18,139.37, of which 617,350.67
was subscribed hy Victoria city,
the remainder being secured from
various places in the province, San
Francisco and Glasgow being down
for $5 and $25 respectivcly.the only
foreign subscriptions. The total of
subscriptions, $18,139.37, has been
brought up to $20,000 by the addition of $1,860.63, "guaranteed at
the general committee meeting of
26th June, 1888," and this has been
supplemented by a grant of $20,-
000 from tho provincial government,
making a total amount available of
$40,000. The contract for the
building-has been awarded to Mr.
J. F. Elford for the sum of $50,558,
all the preliminaries arranged, and
active operations have commenced.
A further sum of $10,558 will be
required to complete the undertaking free of debt, and a continuation
of donations, &_., will be thankfully
received by Wm. M. Ohudley, hon.
secretary. The statement shows that
there are subscriptions still unpaid,
including $200 promised by the
order of Foresters, of $681.25, and
that J. P. Pemberton has made a
donation of land, "value unknown,"
nt the head of Fort street, for the
site of tho building. The report
adds that every want has been taken
into consideration, aided by an efficient sub-committee, such as a
female ward, infectious disease
wards, quite apart from the main
building, and good accommodation
for pay patients; and it is confidently hoped, on completion of the
building, towards the close of the
present year, that the board of directors will be ablo to offer facilities
unequalled on the Pacific Coast.
We are forced to tho unpleasant
task of bringing our  well-meaning,
but at times rather  hasty-spoken,
cotemporary of tho World back to
tho point, from which it is  fuin  to
wander, in tho matter of its recent
foolish charges against the returning
officer re the civic elections held in
this city the other day.    We will
repeat tho charge as contained  in
the World immediately  after the
election:   "The World's representative was refused admittance to the
polling booth by    the   returning
officer. .Shortly  afterwards a policeman admitted him, but he  waa
ordered to  withdraw.     A  representative of The Columbia!.,   howover, was allowed inside, and to that
penon the returning officer handed
a paper with the  reiult, fully  ten
minutei before he nnnounced it  to
the public."    PThe   World might,
perhaps, have been excused, on the
plea of ignorance,   for expressing
indignation that its  representative
had been excluded, while The Columbian's had been admitted; but
it had no right to make the charge
in the first placo, which it certainly
did without the slightest evidence,
that "the returning  officer handed
a paper with the result, to The Columbia*! representative,  fully  ten
minutes before ho announced it  to
the public."   We have already told
the World, what it should have   ascertained before committing itself,
that Tug  Columbian's representative on that occusion was Mr. Thos.
Cunningham's sworn election agent,
and as such had a perfect right to
admittance to tho  polling  booth;
and that he secured the figures liim-
lelf, ai he had a right to do, several
minutes before the deputies made
their official statement  to  the  returning Officer.     Instead  of  beating about the bush, as it does in its
issue of yesterday, and  saying, in
referenco to tho serious accusation
againat  the  returning officer, "no
■uoh thought entered our mind," the
World would, have shown moro honesty and tunicas if it had unqualifiedly retracted tho charge and admitted its mistake.   The point for
which it pretends to be contending

An eastern cotemporary gives
some interesting figures about London's paupers. The ratepayers of
tho British metropolis, it says,
support today about 100,000 "legal
poor," that is to say, persons for
whom special relief is provided in
asylums of various sorts and at their
homes, and the mojority of whom
are poor through misfortune and unable to work. The amount raised
in London on poor rates is nearly
£3,000,000 sterling, over two-thirds
of whioh is devoted to the support
of the "legal poor," the remainder
covering other payments. Two
classes .ome under the category
mentioned—tho "indoor" and the
"outdoor" poor. The former number about C0,000, and they are
housed in workhouses, sick infirmaries, orphan asylums, and other
relief institutions. Tho able-bodied
adults among them are only 8,000
in number, a littlo over half of them
being men, Tho "unablo" consist
of 31,000 sick and infirm in the
work-houses, 13,000 children, all of
tender age, in tho schools, 1,000
vagrants, and somo 6,000 chronic,
harmless lunatics. This is.tho extent of London's indoor pauperism,
exclusive of lunatics in the asylums.
The outdoor poor number about 40,-
000, and aro nearly all of the "unable" classes. Out-relief is given
only where in-relief would not bo
applicable. Families are assisted
in oase of the sickness of the father
or mother, or of urgent and sudden
necessity by reason of accident to
limb, infirmity of some member of
the family, or death. Adult women
receive aid when they are widows
left with children; and wives of
soldiers, sailors, wives of prisoners,
and orphan children in the care of
friends are relieved in special cases.
It is a remarkable fact that, notwithstanding the rapid growth of
the city—tho increase in population
being about 70,000 a year—its
pauperism is diminishing. In 1871
as many as 36 in each 1,000 were
on the outdoor relief list; now the
number is less than twelve. In
1886, when the population was
under 3,000,000, the whole number of paupers on the rates at one
time was over 100,000 and tiiere
was a pauperism "off and on" tlie
rates of nearly us many more, making nearly double the pauperism of
to-day, when tho population is aliout
4,000,000. A few years ago tho number of actuul paupers on the rates at
ono time came to as many as 181,-
000. Twenty years ago tho proportion of paupers ranged from 36
to 55 in the thousand of population,
while to-day it moves between 24
and 25 in the thousand. The
method of dealing with poverty has
also been greatly improved. Prior
to 1867, when the Metropolitan
Poor Act was passed, the "local
government system," by which each
parish was made an independent
centre of administration was in
vogue. -Tot only was this system
faulty, but in many localities its
administration was wretchedly
bad. All this has been changed
during the past two decades, the
local centres now being under one
common control, and the treatment
of pauperism being conducted on
settled lines and in accordance with
well-defined principles. To this may
be partly due the decrease in - the
number of "legal poor," but there
oan be no doubt that the figures
quoted furnish, as the Times says,
"a remarkable testimony to the
growing thrift and independence of
tho immense population in the: capital of Europe."

The refinements of the ancients varied In
-most overy way from thoae of a modern
igo, except, perhaps, ln some of the uses
■appertaining tothe toilet, and the Script-
ires, as well as other records of ancient
mstoms, heart tesUmbny tbat baths and
:loan linen, perfumes and sweet odors,
**ere regarded quite aa muoh of a luxury
,hon as now. Few are, perhaps, aware
;hat the origin of the use of manufactured
wr funics had a sacred character, yet they
rvcre an invention of the priests who officiated at the sacrificial altars in tho olden
temples; and, doubtless, great necessity
oust have been the mother of Invention, for
[rom the slaughtered beasts must havo
irlsen most noxious emanations, which all
tho wator in the land would not havo
washed clean without tho uid of tho perfumes of Arabia.
Opinions, says a writer) in tho Chicago
Herald, differ about the use and abuse of
Bweet scents. Certainly thoro is an incon-
r-rulty in their use hy mon, but a woman
who loaves behind her a subtle sense of
redolonco carries always a double charm.
Strong, active, onorgetio natures aro apt to
jcorn an indulgence in what la bo grateful
to thoir opposite-—languid, luxury-loving
people. Yet the natural odor of flowers
about tho house are grateful to all for their
j-iweetncss, as well as for their beauty, and
to thoso flowers to which Mother Earth has
refused a fragrance we givo but half tho
care whioh is showered upon those that can
-•ratify a double senso. To sorao poor unfortunates the Bcent of certain odors, and
evon of flowers, is distasteful, and not always from association. Even further than
Unit, tho disliked odors render some persons quite UL With ago tho senso of smell
is affecto.! and, like the other senses, grows
weak, nnd aome elderly ladies, especially
thoso who have beon beautiful, worldly
women, much flattered and admired, absolutely reek with tho strong bouquet of
some perfumery.
Thoir 'unconsciousness Is pitiable, their
vanity deplorable, for it would wound them
I too greatly to suggest a lessening of their
Indulgence, and thoy must bo allowed to
reckon. Tho olfactory nerves are capricious things,' and the aroma which makes
I'lom dilate with pleasure at ono tlmeia
[ luito disagreeable at another. They easily
hocorao surfeited with an overdose
f A gentleman who waa particularly fond
[of tho fragrance of the violet, both "au
naturol" and artificial, and used a delicate-
scentabout hia. person: and olothing in all
possible ways, never permitting it to pass
a faint, subtle point, grew to abhor it utterly because his negro butler had evidently
tho samo propensity, which lio gratified not
only by Indulging constantly iu his master's
essences, but In stronger and loss carefully
prepared extracts of'his own. Especially
was it discovered to bo his habit to scatter
vi-lot wator all ovor hia clothing just as ho
waa preparing to servo dinner, and whon
he took up his place behind hia master's
chair tlio odor was overpowering. As a
consequence the gentleman becomes quito
111 at only standing near a lady who wears
violets. Another gentleman who was devoted to, a certain old-fashioned prcpara*
on of lavender was affected ln much tho
•ime manner by the accidental breaking of
, largo bottle in his trunk and the coase-
luent saturation of hia clothing with the
itrong perfume, which it was impossible to
■eniove. Sinco then any scent la distaste*
'ul to htm.
Women generally havo a habit of tucking
I'ttlo bags of Baohet powder in their bureau
Irawers and pinning then in their dresses*,
ut thoy as generally are Indiscriminate lu
ihoosing tho odors, sometimes buying helio-
-ropo, sometimes violet and again rose,
[■here Is much more refinement nnd dainti-
icss of feeling, beside a quaint and certain-
y sweet coquetry in keeping always a per-
umeof one's own; it becomes then almost
partof one's own being. If one la fond
f the fragrance of tho rose an Investment
1 a few of the long, peculiar viola contaiA-
ig attar of roses and keeping them in
arious places amid tho possessions is a
auch more enduring way of perfuming
ban using sachet powder. However, tho
■est way of using sachet powder is to make
thm pad the size of each buroau drawer
ind trunk tray, of thin silk or cotton and
mo layer of cotton wadding, over which tho
lachot powder is sprinkled, leaving one end
nit loosely sown, so that the scont may bo
utfilT renewed. The faint-tinted cheese
.loths which como now aro very good for
:,his purpose. If a dozen of these pods aro
piado at some leisure time the si_e of one's
trunk they will be found extremely con-
-'onlent to lay between drosses. It Is also a
food plan when ft new dress-comes home to
iavo a tiny bag of scent at onco sown Into
be waist New beginuors at concocting tho
' atpourri for the rose-jars aro apt to uso too
much spice; essential oils aro muoh better
ban any sploes.
Our grandmothers vroil knew tbe delight
>f stealing the perfume from the flowers,
and their •» itilWwoft,"' whero were all con-
renionces for this, was a part of the ma*
■hinory of every homo. In our country
vast quantities of flowers go to waste and
we send to France tor our perfumes, yet
lothtng is easier nor more womanly than to
mako tho perfumes from flowers which we
-te. Into a large, flat, clean earthenwaro
vossel pour some purified fat lard and suet
•nixed, warmed aufficiently to make it liquid.
Throw into It as many scented flowers of
no kind as it will contain. Let remain
twenty-four hours covered, then strain off
iho fat and add more flowers, repeating tho
process overy day for a week. The method
of liberating tills cssonco of flowers from
the fat Is very simple. Permit it to harden,
cutit into small cubes and put into spirits
of wine, The delicate odor immediately
transfers itself from tho coarse fut to the
spirituous solvent, and such a strength of
perfume Ib procured with littlo trouble ns
would cost a great deal at a perfumer's.
Mr. Gladstone's library.
Mr. Gladstone's study at Hawardon Castle Ib rather curiously arranged. Tho wells
are covered with books, and volumes are
also massed in large shelves jutting out
from tbo walls Into the room. Between
each partition of books thore is room te
walk; thus the saving of space ln arranging tho library In this manner is enormous.
Tho stock of books, perhaps, exceeds 15,000
volumes, aad notwithstanding this largo
| number Mr. GHsdBtono has littlo diffloulty
In placing his hand upon any volomo that
ho may i*e*_ttire; There ere three writing-
desks in the room; ono Is chiefly reserved
for correspondence of a political nature, and
another Is used by Mrs. Gladstone.' Look*

might be Interested In my case, for I can relate an experience that seems to bo phenomenal.
"I am twenty-seven years old; robust
and sound, and I never know of promaliiro
ago coming upon any of my people. Y.i I
am gray and old far beyond my years, it
all came about in a single night When I
was a boy, hungry, poor und forlorn, I was
tempted into oi-imo, I'saw in a window
open packages of rich candles. By stopping Inside tho door and watching my op*
portunlty I could reach one of them. 1
thought nobody was looking, but when 1
snatched ono and fled I ran straight into
the arms of a policeman on the pavement
outside I hod a good mother, and the
thought came that I had betrayed her and
ruined myself. I was almost crazed with
remorse I begged to be released, ItjnMho
officer did his duty, Noxt day when I was
brought from jail and put on trial I caw
among tho motloy crowd in tho police court
a man who did not eoom to belong Uioro.
Hoprovctito bo tho.ownor of:ithc ot-oro
from which 1 had stolen tho candy. When
I found this out my-fright was increased..
You can imaglno my surpriso that this
gentleman, when called as a wltnosB, withdrew all charges against mo, and asked tlio
court ns n personal favor to discharge mc.
Thia request was granted. * My now friend
called mo to oho,sido after the trial, hcui-d
my story pad seemed to havo faith In my
promises, fie oven took Uo into his more
and advanced ine from ono position to un-'
other a:- tlio years rolled on, and dually

. "One night, just a year ago, I found myself down atitbo store- ava late hour. V *-■
had received a largo ■ atom of money nfU'r
banking hours, and this had beon placed in
tho safe In my keeping. For somo reason ll
was tempted to go down town that night. I
wandered into the store, sat around awhile
and finally opened tho safe I wus trembling
violently all tho time-why I would not confess until tha conviction forced itself upon
mo that I was about to commit my second
burglary. An Infernal dosirdif-ir'that money
had complete control of mo. 'Finally I toolt
out tho money, put It in my pockets and
locked up tho safe. Then I went to work Iri
a clumsy manner to conceal iho crime I
thought I could pry off tho lock and thus
make believe that tho safe had been robbed
by exports, I was sweating at the felonious
task when I hoard- a step behind mo, followed by a voice: 'What in tha world aro
you doing, Johu?'
" It was tho voice of my employer and old'
friend—tho man who had saved me from
prison and who hod given tno a chance in
tho world. Great heavens I how I suffered.
Cold blood-sweat stood out on me, and the
thought of my treachery was agonizing beyond human endurance. 1 was suffering all
the torture that Dr, Jekyll must have
known in being transformed into Mr. Hyde.
I felt the very elements of my body changing. 01 glorious relief, sweet delight, whon
1 found that all of thia roal suffering hud
been iu nightmare only, and that I was still
the trusted employe of a juat man.' Yot
when I looked iuto ihe glass noxt morning
I found thut tho snow which comes upon
ordinary mortals in old ago had whitened
my head during that struggle in my sloop."
DROWNING  SWIMMEHS.
What a TJ.V8t.ver  Says  to Them and
What They Say to Him.
"Whydo good swimmora drown tn tho
seal" was asked by an Atlantic City correspondent of life-saving young* Ed O'Biicn,
who has become somewhat famous along tho
coastthoro.
t"Iwill toll you," ho answered. "The
men' who tiro good swimmers, and who
drown while in bathing hero, are freshwater swimmers. They are good swimmers in smooth water, but when they tuck le
the sea they are no good. A good many,
when ln the water, go out too far to show off.
Then whon it comes to swimming back they
give out and go down. Thoso fresh-water
swimmers have un idea that they must got
■jack on & straight lino. Thoy know nothing
'about tides or currents, and they strike out
to get back to shore by tbe shortest route
instead of finding out the current and
swimming with it. Tho flrst thing thoy
know thoy get Into a wave that twists them
all lip. They don't know when to cut
through it, and all of a sudden thoy lose
their head, get out of wind, booorac scared
and then comes the cry for help.'-"'-*, freshwater-swimmer coming to any beach ou;,-lit
first to study tbe currents and .tides before
ho ventures out. No one should vculur
out beyond tbe safety lino unless he is
thoroughly posted, no matter how good n
swimmer ho is in still water. If ho knows
tho current and the tido thorougltly ho will
find it an- easy matter to get back to shore
In hia own good time."
"What do you first say to a drowning
man when you reach him I"
"I sing out to hun as loud as I can that I
havo him safe. If I am in a boat I lirst
throw him a rope, Whon I go for a drowning man 1 always think dfialifo fopn.ife.
It is always best to-keep a-drowning limn
off from you until you**!m**b*hiniquieted
down. If an excited man gots the best of
you in tho water tho chances aro both of you
will bo lost."
"What Is the first thing a saved man will
generally say to youl"
" Aftor ho gets out and gets hts wits bock
again, tho first thing a man generally does
is to smile, shako his hood, and any 'that
was a narrow escape, sure.- Thon liu'il
thank me over and over again, and if he
owned tho world he'd givo threo-fout th& of
it to mo, A good many X havo saved rewarded me liberally, but. I have helped out
somo men who promised, me much, but never
kept tbelr promises,"
Borne Striking Contrasts. I j
An English lady living temporarily In tho
United States notices thut tho house servants doadoal moro work here than in tho old
country; yet that our servants aro relieved
of somo work that is -necessary thbro-ilio
taking of hot and cold water to sleeping-
roonv- in some '.louses, and tho care of a uro
in overy room by reason of no funuiiv in
tho collar. Bho Insists upon' tho supurlorify
of stoves horo over fire-places In- Bnglund
in cold weather, and soys that the, kitchen
stove hero burns much Icbb coal than it
does there. Tho uso of bituminous coal In
England Is ono cause ot some of these
troubles. Tbe independence of the domes'jo
servants In America Ib another noticeable
fact, as might bo expected In a democratic,
country. As a sample of tbe greater conveniences hero, the carpet sweeper Is mentioned; with Its dustless work, 1111)1000 of a

The Serpentine Flnla Ovcrllnw.
Travel over the Serpentine Flats via
the Yalo wagon road in impeded at
present by an overflow of water. The
Serpentine and Nicomekl canal improvements, whioh have been made by
the Dominion government, have done
muoh good and the overflow this season
is much less than in former years. If
the government makes a suitable ap*
propriation at the coming session of
parliament to complete the work thero
is no reason why these fertile flats
should over again be aubject to the
damaging overflows. It iB understood
Mr. D. Chisholm, M.P., will urge a
large  appropriation  to complete the
work.

Sunday -School Entertainment.
The Methodist Sunday school au*
niversaiy entertainment which took
place in the Methodist ohurch last night
was in every respect a creditable buc*
cess. In the early part of the evening
about 150 children assembled in the
basement of the building where they
partook of tho various edibles furnished
in the way of refreshments for the occasion. After all had satisfied themselves with these good things they adjourned to the auditorium where the
intellectual wit of the programme was
carried out. T! _ little ones were all
neatly dressed, and as they assembled
on tho platform around the pulpit presented a scene suggestive of the descent
of whito robed innocence upon the
earth. Mr. H. L. DeBeck, superintendent of the school, had charge of
the management of the affair, whilst
Mr. T. R. Pearson conducted the singing with Mrs. Chamberlain and Mrs,
Major and one or two others leading in
different parts. Thu entertainment
was opened st 8 o'clock with a sacred
chorus in the singing of which all the
children joined. A number of recitations and songs given by the youngsters
in turn were well rendered, whilst a
few sacred selections were suug in
chorus. A very amusing feature of
the programme was the breaking of the
jugs, the contents of which add 9100 00
to tho fund for paying off the debt contracted by placing seats in the Suuday
school room. The proceedings were
brought to a clone by the singing of the
national anthem

enterprising firm has gradually extended its business till it now equals that
of nny in the province. In the cabinet
making and finishing departments
from 12 to 1C practical furniture-makers
and upholsterers are constantly employed, aud the work turned out by
them can be made as expensive as the
domand calls for. The furniture for
Mr. G. E. Corbould'a private library,
consisting of handsomely carved and
finished cupboards, boukcasos and
stands, is at present receiving its finishing touches in the factory. The ma*
chinory used in the various lines manufactured consists of a turning lathe,

Wintemute Bros, is 60x100 ft. and
three stories high. The show rooms are
always filled with furniture from the
common grades to the most handsome
and expensive Hues. The firm does a
large and constantly increasing jobbing
trade, for which it is in a good position
to complete. The stock room, 30x80
ft, always contains full  lines of the
frades whioh are most in demand,
he manufacture of picture frames is
also an important item in the buatnesB
of the establishment. Wintemute

of machinery in order to keep abreast
of their rapidly increasing trado,
When these arrive and are put in place
the factory will be the moat complete

and to subdivide it into several electoral
districts.
Moved by G. Chadsey, seconded by
S. Milliard:
Resolved, that the government be asked to appoint some suitable person in
each municipality to. act-as collector of
provincial taxes, whioh "would be more
convenient, and also be tho means of collecting more revenue from persons who
would evade a collector who is a stranger
to the district.
Moved by D. McGillivray, seconded
by W. II. Tornan:  ,
Resolved, that it is expedient to
change the provincial law, making it
compulsory to count tho ballots at each

by Goo. Chadsey:
Resolved, that the jury law bo changed
to make provision for paying jurors summoned and attending, but not being

money in the hands of the registrar to
secure the expenses of jurymen summoned and attending.
Moved by A. Davidson, seconded by
W. H. Cawley:
Resolved, that the government's attention be called to the fact that the
Vedder creek bridge on tho trunk road
is still unconatructed, and the stream
impassable (causing the trunk road to be
of littlo use and a great inconvenience to
the travelling public), also that portion

CORRESPONDENCE.
Voaihfai B*Mm.
Ebrron Columbian: Sir, as I notico
that your paper ia always ready to advocate what is right and put down what ia
wrong, I wish through your columns to
draw publio attention to the fact that
unless prompt and severe measures are
speedily taken, New Westminster will
soon be notorious for juvenile hoodlum-
ism. One instance will suffice: to-day a
boy, apparently 10 or 12 years old, began
deliberately chopping up the new sidewalk in front of iny nouse, and on one
of my children remonBtratins with him
he raised the hatchet and said, "If you
open your mouth I'll chop your toes off."
Juat then some men coming In sight the
young ruffian ran away. Sueh an occurrence Bhould be impossible and would
never happen in any well regulated city,
Itls to bo hoped that under our new
council the law will be more strictly enforced than has lately been the ease.

A SEHIOUS KAKTHQUAKE.
Denver, Col,, Jan. 25.--Advices
from Routt, Col., describe a remark-
ablo earthquake on the 16th, inst.
Thero were soveral severo shocks,
shaking the buildings, detaching large
masses of rock from the mountains and
eauaing fissures in the earth through
which not water and gas rushed forth,
accompanied by sulphurous fumes
which made the people ill and caused
the birds to drop to the ground.
Thunder preceded the shocks but there
was no rain. When the convulsions
ceased the water receded and there
was a roaring sound which seemed to
be caused by the rushing of a subterranean river.
TUB l'i-NAMA CANAL. ,
Washinoton, Jan. 25.—The state
department to-day received from the
United States consul-general at Panama, despatches dated January 15th,
whioh state that on tho previous
day the oanal contractors at Cutebra
reduced the wages of the laborers to
91:20 per day in debased coin, equivalent to 80 cents in American money.
The men, most of whom wero negroes,
refused to work and informed the
police that they intended to resort to
robbery for a living. In tho efforts oi
the police to quell the disturbance
revolvers were used and a serious riot
was threatened, but at the date of the
despatches quiet had boen restored hy
the arrival of the soldiery. The department also received a despatch from
the United States consul at Colon
dated January 13th. It stated that
10,000 workmen are employed on the
canal and that twice as many hangers
on theie of a very bad class. 'Many
rumors were current as to the possible
solution of the canal problem, but no
current impression of the probabilities
was obtainable. At the date of the
despatch a French man-of-war and n
small English war vessel, the Lily,
were in Colon harbor.
