SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
A spring of natural cologne—
whose liquid has not been analyzed,
but has tlie odor of patchouli—is a
new wonder said to have appeared
in Algiers,
At the intelligence bureau of the
U.S. Navy Department a large map
shows by colored tags the present
locution of tho world's war-vessels,
which include about 150 belonging
to Great Britain, 100 to France, 40
to Germany, and 40 to tho United
States.
Large quantities of corn husks
ore now used in Austria for making
coarse cloth and very tough and
ilurable paper. Wood, also, is made
into cloth, Mitachorlich having
devised a process by which tho fibre
may be strengthened and prepared
^ir spinning.
Experiments made sinco the late
explosion of ii petroleum vessel in a
French harbor show that a mixture
of ono part of petroleum vapor to
livo or less of air does not explode.
With six parts of air the mixture is
feebly explosive, with seven to
twelvo parts violently so, with sixteen parts feebly explosive, and
with twenty parts of air is not
likely to explode.
Cumous Parasitism .The greenish color of certain sloths was found
somo years ago to be duo to a
parasitio growth of algae upon tho
hair. Two genera and threo species
of these minute plants—one genus
green, ond the other, with its two
species, violet—have since been
described by Madam Weber von
Bosse. A single hair may have
upon it from 150,000 to 200,000
individuals.

Washikoion, March il.—Tho scnato

Harrison is bcaieged by cullers and
cabinet making advisers. Many called
to pay their respects and Senator
Stookbridge called to protest ajrainat
the appointment of Senator Palmer
as aeoretary of agriculture. Gen. B.
F. Tracey, of Brooklyn, was at the
Arlington receiving congratulations on
his certain appointment to the navy.
About 11 o'clock Harrison, accompanied by his aon Russell and Private
Secretary Halford, slipped oft" nnd
visited Cleveland at the White houae.
Cleveland trill return the call this
afternoon. Tin, haa been tbo busiest
day tor Harrison since his arrival, but
it is believed he has undoubtedly finally determined on the members of his
cabinot whicli will be as follows:

Koaoberry, when Mr. Phelps com
plained of the harshness of the enforcement of ils proviaiona, said it was perfectly fair. Continuing, he contrasted
the endorsation of the liberal opposition of the fishery policy three years
ago with their talk of the government's
brag, blow and bluster.
The resolution was defeated by 43

Light-Weight Motors. -- Some
electric motors made by M. Trouve
for aeronautical experiments are
remarkable for their lightness. One
—made of aluminium, except the
magnets—weighs but a little more
tlian threo ounces, and develops
onu fortieth of a horse-power, lifting
itself seventy-two feet in one second.
Constructed on tho same scale, a
one-horse motor would weigh less
than eight pounds.
OOMPRESBIBILITY  OP    WaiIBR.  —
At a roce'nt meeting of tho Royal
Society at Edinburgh, Prof. Tait
showod theoretically that water
could be compressed to about three-
fourths of its original bulk. The
compressibility of sea-water is 92
of that of fresh water. If the
water of the ocean were suddenly

cent of tho habitable land of tho
globo would be submerged, because
tho mean depth of water would   be
increased 11G feot.
A New Sodium Process.—A
Russian chemist, Mr. N. N. Becktov,
hits sought to produce sodium by
electrolysis from common silt-
believing that such a method might
provo butter than either of the two
now in use-—the Leblano and the
ammonium processes. A current
sent through fused salt, having a
temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit, caused rapid and complete
decomposition, and indicated tbat
this method would be practicable
and economical on a commercial
scale.
A Valuable Cement.—A new
cement has been used to renovate
many stone buildings of Paris, and
is likely to prove useful for various
purposes. A powder is made of
two parts of oxide of zinc, two of
crushed hard limestone, and one of
pulverized grit, with a certain proportion of ochre as a coloring agent.
A liquid to use with tbo powder consists of six parts of zinc dissolved in
commercial muriatic acid, with one
part of sal amoniac, the whole
diluted with two-thirds of its volume
of water. A pound of powder to
two and a half pints of liquid gives
a very strong cement.
A Grand Institution. — A
German organization of scientific
men has for its chief object tho
spread of astronomical, geographical
and physical knowledge. The
society is called "Urania," and it
has begun its work by establishing
a unique popular observatory, with
an illustrated journal in connection.
Instruction will commenco in the
scientific theatre, where will be
represented eclipses, the motions
and appearances of planets, coiuots,
meteors, etc. In an exhibition hall
the phenomena of sound, heat, light
and electricity will be explained by
a variety of apparatus, models of
many machines will be shown,
together with instruments of precision, and fifty microscopes will aid
the knowledge-seeking publio. A
lecture-room and a reading-room are
provided. The observatory proper
will contain a number of smaller
instruments, and in addition will
have the most powerful telescope in
Borlin—a refractor with a lens
twelve inches in diameter.
W. W. MoLellin, Lynn, K. S., writes:
"I was afflicted with rheumatism, and
had given up all hopes of a cure. By
chance I mw Dr, Thomas' Eclectric Oil
recommended. 1 immediately sent
(fifty miles) and purchased tour bottles,
and with only two applications I was
able to got around, and although I have
not used one bottle, I am nearly well.
The other three bottles I gave around to
my neighbors, and I havu had so .miny
calls for more, that I feel bound to re*
Ueve tho afflicted by writing to you for
a supply."

WHOLESALE  HYDROPHOBIA.
White River,   Ind., March 2.—A
wholesale outbreak oi hydrophobia has
taken place and there is great excitement. A few weeks ago a mad do;; bit
a number of animals, including suvcral
cattle belonging to Fanner Sutton.
The cattle were killed and tho carcasses
burned iu one huge pile. The smull
of burtiini! meat attracted all the dugs
in the neighborhood, who feasted un
tho meat. Nearly all tho dogs in the
place are now mad and a number of
cattle have been bitten. The loss by
the destruction of the latter is heavy.

DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, March 1.—Mr. Charlton
read a despatch from Congressman R.
Hill stating thut the resolution introduced by him in favor of commercial
reciprocity with Canada has boen
adopted almost unanimously by tho
house of representatives.
Mr. O'Brien announced his intention of introducing n resolution respecting tho disallowance of tho Jesnits
Estate Bill. He intends, it is surmised,
to proposo a vote of want of confidence in tho government
Mr. McDonald (Huron) suppurtod
the resolution in n viitorous speech.
Mr. Jouos (Halifax) followed in tho
tame view, speaking for three qu-iiters
of au hour. He claimed that thu recent elections won by tho liberals bad
been carried on thu programme iu
favnr of closer trade relations with tlm
United States. Proceeding, he dwelt
on the immense market that would be
open to the Canadian fisheries nud
under reciprocity tho United States,
he claimed, would bo Canada's best
customer.
Thu discussion hub tosumed upon
Mr. Lauher's resolution in favur of
direct negotiations by Canada wiih tlio
United Stutes looking to the settlement of the fisheries question on tho
basis of extended trade relations. Hon.
Fetor Mitchell indulged in a great
attack upon tho government's fisheries
policy, and the commercial policy of
the government brought in n severe
attack upon the present administration. Hewasunocommeicial unionist,"
although ho had pledged himself in
favor of closer trade relations with tho
United States. After arraigning Lord
Salisbury's government for their. ignorant interference in North American
affairs, Mr. Mitchell went on to show
that the policy of protection is preventing Canada from enjoying prosperity.
In conclusion Mr. Mitchell counselled
moderation toward the United States,
particularly in regard to the fishery
queition.
Sir John S. D. Thompson, tho
miniiter of justice, followed. After
juitifyintt the policy of the conservative government on tho fishery question during the past 30years, ho showed the moderation adopted iu 1886 to
bring about an amicable settlement.
The stories that Canada had put an unwarrantable interpretation on the
treaty of 1818 wero false. It was as a
niatter of fact the same interpretation
that wu put on it by the provincial
government, and backed up by tho
"llllien" Maintains His Original View*.
Editor Columbian.—Your criticism
on my views of the admission of Sapperton into the corporation of Westminster
is rather far fetched.   It does not follow,
because I object to the present admission
of an extension of the city limits, that I
would also favor the division of the present townstte into ward governments, or
that a man of a vaoilatiag turn of mind
should cut himself in twain.   I maintain
that, in the ease of- Vancouver, it would
bo much- better for  both parties in the
present quarrel to sue for a divorce, on
the ground that their interests aro not
identical, and I also maintain that Westminster,   under   the   present circumstances, will not be benefitted by annexing  Sapperton, because their interests
will not be identical,   with the penitentiary and asylum grounds between, you
never can  unite  Sapperton's interests
with the royal city, but, on tho contrary,
there must ever be an adverse pull.   The
location of tho penitentiary was an outrage on the people who cast their lots on
what they had a right to believo was to
be the seat of government for B.C. for all
time to come, and only that tho provincial  government wished to wipe out all
traces of the original seat of government
at Now Westminster, such an institution
as a penal settlement would never have
been thought of in such close proximity
to the chief eity on the mainland.   Victoria's selfish  interests   prompted  the
deed, and it has been carried out with a
high hand.   The giving away of the old
government grounds for a penitentiary
was a case of vandalism hard to equal in
this 19th century.   It introduced a bar-
rior  to  the extension  of Westminster
eastward that the old citizens and early
pioneers will never look upon but with
abhorrence, and any attempt to build up
a rival town beyond that barrier, at the
expense of the old  royal oity, will be
looked upon with suspicion by every truo
friend of Westminster.   From foes without and foes within this city has been
well nigh crushed on several occasions.
The only foe  that  can now hurt her is
that of hor own household.   It should
not he forgotten that a uiajority of our
citizens havo pledged themselves heavily

Madrid, March 1.—An Englishman
who registered in a hotel here ai Ronald Pooaonby was placed under arrest
to-day and committed suicided before

There seems to be no doubt that

evidently chose a name whose initials

According to :i Washington
patch published yesterday, our
American cousins appear in it new
attitude toward "commercial union."
Tlio senatorial mouth-pieces of tlie
ropublic, who havo figured prominently as gazing over Canada's
back fence, with their mouths
watering for the "ripening" of tliu
Canadian plum, have been credited
with declaring tlmt the United
States would have nothin:!; to do
with the Dominion, in the way of
closer trade relations,until the latter
was prepared to surrender unconditionally. If our despatch of yesterday bo true, however, the United
States would appear to be only too
willing to do its share toward establishing commercial union with
Canada. Either tho nsserti ve
senators misrepresented American
sentiment on tho question, or
American sentiment has experienced a very sudden change. This
expression from the American capital in favor of international reciprocity will play right into the
hands of the Canadian commercial
unionists, and give them a fresh
start. Comniereiul'union, however,
carried out in its fullest sense, between Canada and tlie United
States, would mean, practically, a
severing of all the bonds that connect Canada with Great Brifain,and
the political assimilation of Canada
by the States would almost certainly
follow. Commercial union, as the
Americans fully appreciate, is n
short step to annexation.
B,
at7t8Q o'clock, goal
ally Invited. Hiimli
Our correspondent "Oitizcn"   returns to the Sapperton annexation
question in tliis issue.    It will  not
be profitable for us to re-state   our
views     on     the     question,    but
we   may   bu permitted    to   touch
upon n fow points   in   this   seoond
letter.    As before "Citizen"   urges
as the chief drawback to the union
the fact that the penitentiary  mid
asylum   grounds   inti-rvcue,     We
admitted the other day   tlmt   this
was a drawback to  a   certain   extent, but not necessarily nn insuperable objection,    What strikes us ns
peculiar, however, is the   fact  that
__Westin;nster has   been^niniing  nt
several years, nnd tlio "only   opposition that  wo   can   recollect   has
come from the Sappertnnites.    Tho
matter has been before   tho   public
recently for nearly   a   month,   and
tho lirst public   expression against
the proposed union   was   contained
in "Citizen's'1 letter of   Thursday.
If there is really nny public   sentiment in this city against   the   annexation of Sapperton, or any good
nud SLifllcient reason why that  suburb should not be taken in, it ia remarkable   that,   while proceedings
looking to the aunexntion in question havo been going forward with
the utmost publicity, nothing like a
public proicst has been made against
the movement.   The apparent una
niratty that prevailed in favor of the
union, nnd the fact that Westminster hus long desired it, would appear to show that, notwithstanding
auy   drawbacks   that   havo   been
mentioned, the annexation of   Sapperton Ims been generally considered
to bo in the interests of tho city, at
least.    If there are nny other objections at this   eleventh   hour,  that
havo not yot been mooted,   as  our
correspondent would seem to   hint,
it is full time (if  not   almost past
time) tbat they  wuro brought   forward and acted upon.    We heartily
ngrco with our correspondent   "Citizen," that it will go hard with  any
man or men who would "attempt to
speculate on the people's credit" and
that the peoplo «f this city will insist,
as they have the   undoubted   right
to oxpeut, that not only the   letter,
but tho true spirit, of the Southern
Railway compact shnll   be   carried
out.
Tho ferment and confusion which
the rather startling outcome of   tho
Parnell commission  has   produced,
in a journalistic, political, and  even
social,   sense,    iu   tho   immediate
arena of the conflict, can hardly  bo
estimaU?d or understood at this distance from the actual   scene.     Tho
Timcx, in tho first placo,   has  beon
terribly demoralized and discredited
by the (to many)   unexpected  turn
of things.   Tho great "Thunderor"
finds itself in a dilemma from which
it cannot possibly  escape   without
sorious damago and   discredit.   On
ono horn or the other it must inevitably bo tranBtixed.     The   Var-
ftelUres   und    their   sympathizers
charge it with conspiracy and com
plicityintho criminal attempt to
■   ruin, not only  the  character  nml
future of innocent men, but to subvert a nation's hope by endeavoring
to oast an everlasting stigma on tlio
Home Rule movement, which would
have blighted it for a generation, if
not for ever. Those, who tako tho
most friendly view of tho caso for
the Times are forced to admit that
that journal, if it wns not in tho
conspiracy, showed a most unaccountable and discreditable look of
journalistic acumon, not to say of
ordinary    business   prudence,  in    Mllrcll lHl( m
launching upon so serious and hazardous an undertaking with no better foundation than tho word of
such men as it should have suspec
ted LcCaron and Pigott to bo. Tho
responsibility thus assumed was
fearful, and from the natural consideration that the Times could
hardly havu been satisfied with tho
grounds for its terrible charges, the
conclusion is almost forced that its
articles on "Parnellism and Crime"
must have been a desperate venture,
in collusion with others, for interested and political ends. However
this may be, the dilemma Btands,
and, as worso than knave, or most
dangerous of fools, the Times must
be content to figure before the
world, as the result of its now
famous—infamous—arraignment of
tho Irish Home Rulers, under the
boldly significant title of "Pnrnell-
isin and Crime." But the ill odor
of the signal defeat of wholesale
calumny does not rest only upon
the head of tho most public and
prominent offender; the 2'imes, but
hovers around the government
camp, from whicli it is likely to
be difficult of dislodgement, even if
subsequent inquiry does not cause
it to materialize into something
more tangible. Should Parnell act
on tho hint oi conspiracy thrown
ont by Sir Chas. Russoll, which
seems probable, disclosures muy. be
made thnt will only stop short of
shaking tho queen on her throne.
Sir liichard Webster, ' attorney-
genorol and counsel for the Times,
has fallen into ill odor on account
of his connection with the now infamous prosecution before tiic coin-
mission, nnd his reputation and fortune are likely to suffer sovercly.
Pigott, the forger, perjurer, and betrayer, whom we incidentally
likened to Judas, the other day,
would appear, according to tho despatches, to havo precipitated himself upon Judas' fate. Nothing but
discredit and disgrace would seem
to be in storo for all who have in
any way been connected with the
attempt to blacken and ruin Parnell and his associates. The proverb has been justified: Tho curse
causeless shall not come, but shall
descend upon tho .heads of thom
that sont it forth, Those that
have digged tho pit have fallen
into it themselves. But, if one
side has gone down, the other has
gone up proportionately, and tho
crest of tlie rising wave, that darkly
menaces the already shattered Conservative hark, bears aloft tlio triumphant Liberal ship, with the
Home Rulo crew, the "Grand Old
Man" on the quarter-deck,
and the "Uncrowned King" at the
helm. This^nuy be considered too
sanguine :i picture. Nevertheless
i(. may he realized, mid timt shortly.
The Imperial parliament is now in
session, opening on tho 21st of last
month, the debate on the address is
in progress, advantages are almost
sure to bo gained by tho Liberals
and PtirnelHteSj a trial of strength
may bo precipitated at any time,and
sweeping revolutions may bo inaugurated in the twinkling of an
eye. No ono can say just what will
course of events with intorest.

In overy city there nre individual
examples of men whose connections
with its businoss pursuits, whpse
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
and Untiring industry, make thom
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
antl respected, such a man have we
in tho subject of this sketch, Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this oity in 1862 and
has, through all the vicissitudes of
twenty seven years' trade, maintained the oven tenor of his way.
His transactions have increased
year by year, and the circle of his
customers nnd patrons gradually
widening and his firm extending until he now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in British Columbia. His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. A'l this spaco is filled
with a complete and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, houso furnishings,
iron pipe and fittings. This house
also manufactures tinwa.ro of all
kinds nnd dors every variety of
shoot-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. Thore is no
house in the trado which carries a
more complete stock or whose facilities surpass thoso of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods nt lowest quotations,
The length of timo this gentleman
has been in business and the success he has attained are better
recommendations than the loudest
praise wo could possibly give. We
may mention, however, to our readers who havo not yet become acquainted with this linn, that none
in the Northwest has a better reputation for fair aud honorable dealing.

dnhiito WIGS AND WIG-MAKING,
All About False Hair aud Where
Zt la Procured.
Tbo German ond Norman Peasant Girls
Finn hh Most of tbe Supply-What Thoy
Are Fold for Their Tresses-The
Cost of First-Close Wigs,
Thero is more poetry and romance woven
into tho history of an auburn wig, more
tender sentiment twisted into tbo traditions of a blonde toupee, says tho New
York Sun, than the bald-headed man who
wears them ever dreams of. The soft
locks tnat Bhelter hia poll from tho draught
that chills and the migratory fly that fain
would choose his shiny pate for the scene
of its revels and wanderings, once waved
above tho bright eyes of some fair German
peasant maiden or saucy, sparkling Norman lassio, who bartered them for a
trinket of gold or silver for hor Sabbath-
day adorning. Juat why these peasant
women possess such abundant tresses has
never yet been satisfactorily explained,
but tbo foreign women, particularly the
French and Gorman, who toil in the fields,
shielded from tho sun only by the small
close cap which covers their hair, hut
does not shade thoir faces, invariably
havo beautiful, fine, soft hair, and it
is from them that all tho best hair iu tho
market is obtained, in the following manner. Most of the women havo too much
hair to ho covered entirely by the close oap
without being so tightly braided or twisted
as to ba uncomfortable. Accordingly the
itinerant hair buyer fills his pockets and
pack with bright ribbons, fine caps, heads
aud trinkets, and wanders through the
fields whero tho women work. Wbon the
noon-tldolunchhos been eaten ho spreads
his tempting wares beneath some .shelter'
fug tree, and the shy, bright-eyed lassies
steal up timidly and pick out tho brooch or
long ear-rings or pretty ribbons for tholr
Sunday nip for which tboy long, thon snatch
off tho Utile caps from their hair, unbraid
and shako out all its shining beauty for the
peddler's inspection, and when a bargain is
mndo they sit down on tho ground whilo ho
carefully snips out hero and there a tress
bo cunningly that it is never missed. Usually a girl sells about half hor hair, but if it
bo very heavy two-thirds of it is sometimes
out out, leaving tho remainder long and
smooth, to bo braided up with no trouble
and wound about her head. Pure white
hulr is most expensive becauso extremely
rare. A woman old enough to have white
hair has usually very little loft, and that
Is short, yellow at tho ends, and split and
broken. After this tho yellow blonde hair
is most difficult to find, auburn hair, and
wbat hair-dressers designate as drab
shades. J-1
Tho art of wig-making is dignified with
the most ancient of histories. Thero is a
periwig In tho British Museum of
Egyptian origin supposed to be 4,000 years
old, andXenophon mentions that Astyagcs
woro un immense wig. Roman Emperors
supplied tho lack of natural hair with
artificial substilutos,the wigof the Emperor
Commodus being highly perfumed and
sprinkled with gold dust; and even tho
South Sea Islanders understand tho art of
wig-making. After tho decline of tho
popular fashion of Louis XIII.'s establishment, that no gentleman could appear without. & wig, wigs were rarely worn at all,
becauso they wore so crudely fashioned aa
to deceive no ono as to thoir purpose, but
Mri RmichfusB, tho oldest wig-maker in the
city, luworts that thero is now a revival
of tlio custom and a continually increasing
demand for wigs and toupees, though this
Is not i loticeable, becauso thoro aro so many
ihoro1 aid-headed men than formerly that
tho pci'fioutaga of wig weavers is small aud
wigs i re so cunningly made as to defy detection. PhysloianB frequently recommend
tho wi tiring of wigs ns a preventive of or
cure tor catarrh and neuralgia and influenza.
"All kinds of poople wear them," Mr.
Slouch fuss asserts, "from the fastidious
muit ol" unlimited means, who buys a new
wig citing twenty-flvo - dollKa,l.'or..jyijrty
ilollhra as often as once a month, to the
man who only can afford one onco a year,
and then takes a wig that some fussy man
hus discarded after once or twice wearing
because the color didn't please him or something lu tho stylo didn't quite suit. Theso
wc Bell cheaper, like the misfits iu the
tailors' establishments; but we never mako
any real misfits." |    #     ■-,.•,,,-.. , [
"How often does any ono need a how
Wig!"
"Onco in threo or six months, according
to tho caro thoy give it. Peoplo with wigs
are with wigs just as they are with clothing. Seme mon will wear a suit und look
drc&scd in it when you can seo your face in
tlio buck of tho coat and carry u valise iu
tho knee of the trousers. St is tho neat
way tboy put it ou and tho cure they givo
it. Just so with a wig."
, "How do you fasten on toupees!"
"With a peculiar preparation liko paste,
which comes In a long stick and is hard until a small piece is broken off and worked in
the lingers liko putty. Three or four of
theso pieces will fasten a toupeo on so a
blizzard can't blow it off, but It loosens easily
with tho lingers when we wish to remove it." - ■
"What Is tho most expensive wig model"
" A pure white ventilated wig costs 140 or
ISO, and a plain weft wig in a color comes as
low ns t-ifl. Toupees run from 810 to $15.
Of course, ladies' wigs aro moro expensive,
sometimes going as high as $100, according
to tho length and color of tho hair. But
very few ladies wear wigs, for thero are so
many little devices by which women conceal
their Lack of hair; and they are cunning
enough in tho arrangement, of the few
tresses they have to make the most of
them."
K "Which ure hardest to please, women or
ment"
'"There's very Uttle difference. Tboy are
both hard to please at first. They are accustomed to seeing little or no hair and
any thing we can make looks unnatural.
Old wig wearers havo thoir particular hobbies, but they are easily satisfied. Ono of
my customers wears a toupee that weighs
four ounces, one-quarter of a pound, you
•oc, when a wholo wig only weighs an ounce
and a quarter. That's becauso ho woro it
years ago when thoy mado wigs liko floor
mats, booauso they didn't know any better.
There's ono advantage that wig-makers
have, und tbat is they keep their customers.
A man that puts on a wig oan never tako it
off. IIo would us soon think of dressing
himself without his coat as without his wig,
and ho would feel as strange without it as
othor men would feel hi tho street without
any bat It looks easy to mako a wig, but It
Isn't, and not evory man can mako tbem,
Wig-makers aro born, uot made, just like
artists in other professions."
Grant'*. Memory for Faces, I .. _
On his return from the tour around tho
world at the reception tendered him in New
York, General Grant Invited the Bishop of
Minnesota to receive with him. Peoplo by
tho thousands streamed by, mostly unknown
to tho General. Ono lady especially attracted his attention as she approached
"General," Bho Baid,"you do not remember
mo." " Yes, madaine, I do; I met you at a
momentous crisis in my lifo; wait, do not
tell mo when," and he paused to think; then
witli flashing oyo, as if echoes of booming
cannon stirred Ids soul; " It was just beforo the last engagement at Vicksburg, and
prior to the surrender; I stopped you as
you wore hurrying from tho city ns I np
. proached it on foot. I asked you somo quos
lions whioh you answered in a considerate
manner, betraying your good breeding aud
Southern sympathies, but not your cause."
* A Feathered Surgeon,
A farmer recently discovered In his barn
a bird's nest containing a pair of young
swallows. On taking one young bird up
in bis hand, he was astonished to soo in tog
Tory thoroughly bandaged with horsehair.
Having carefully removed the hairs one by
one, he was still moro astonished to find tho
poor nestling's leg was broken. Hemming
to look at tho patient again noxt day, tho
leg was found bandaged ns boforo. The
nost was not again Interfered with fora

COLONEL BOWIE'S KNIFE.
It Is .us popular as Ever,  But Nut  fur
tiueliiig Purposes,
A reporter of the New York Evening
Post was talking with 'ono of the proprietors of a big down-town cutlery-houso
when a customer entered and said bo
wished to see somo bowie-knives. A varied
assortment was shown to him, and he
selected ono, paid for it, and went out.
"What on earth is ho going to do with
that,!" asked tho reporter, as tho customer
disappeared through tha doorway. "Fight
a duel or what?" "Scarcely," laughed tho
proprietor, us he took up one of the keen
blades and ran his thumb-nail over it. "Men
don't fight duels with bowie-knives nowadays. He will probably use that knife iu
hunting,"
"Aro there many bowies sold for that
purpose?"
" Lots of thom. Tho bowio is ono of tbo
mos I useful articles that a sportsman who
is going for big gamo can carry, for it
serves a number of purposes. With it a
hunter can kill and hkin his gamo, as woll
uo cut wood for his camp firo. Thobo.vi.-
knife of to-day is little used as a woap nt of
offense or defense, as it "has uo show"
when pitted against tho self-cooking re-
volver or repeating rifle. Tho kulvo-i wo
sell ure well mado in both blade aud 1. imllo.
The finest steel is used and great caro is
taken in finishing them. The handles i-ms't
used nro buckhorn, but somo sportsmen
prefer deor's-foot or Ivory, silvor mounted,
and for such thoy pay a fancy price, often
us high us fifteen or sixteen dollars."
" Whero aro bowie-knives manufactured I"
"Mostly in England, although thoy ni-o
mado to some extent in Connecticut. Tho
Yankee knives are fully tho equal of their
English competitors. Several firms in the
city impoi't bowie-knives, but no one house
ma!:os un exclusive business of it, ns it
wouldn't pay. Mostof tho knives that are
sent out of tbo city go to the West nud
South. Sinco stringent laws wcroipaaaed
in tiic South, however, making thocp-rying
of:; bowio a criminal offense, tho tftdo In
that region has fallen off considerably A1
grout muny are sent to Cuba and 8<juih
America, although in thoso couniri s tho
machete, a larger and hoavier knife, la moro
popular."
"is the present bowie-knife of tho sumo
sh.ipo us tho first ones mado?"
"The genuine bowio has but oue blupo,
whioh hus nover changed. The famous
Colonel Bowio, you know, from whom tho
knife received its name, invented it uy accident, his sword breaking off in n fight.
Ho was so pleased with the shapo and size
of the fragment which remained in bis
hand that ho had a knife made precisely
like it. Lots of peoplo will call any large,
struigbt-blndcd knifo a bowio, but tho genuine artido nlways has a 'clip' point, whioh
extends about one-third the length of the
blade. When bowio-knives flrat became
popular, their blades wero mado from
twelve to fifteen inches long, two inches
broad nud thiok in proportion. Now the
blades vary in length from flvo to twelve
inches, rarely exceeding tho latter."
'•What 13 tho cost of bowie-kiilvos?"
'Tho flvo-inchknife sells at $1.(50rotnil
and:; 13 u dozen wholesale. Tbo iwolve-iueh
knives uro about $83 a dozen wholesale, und
a good ono at retail will cost about H Tho
intermediate sizes bring .prices in proportion. The figures givon include the sboaths,
Which nro mado of strong leather, tipped
with wtccl and furnished with a loop by
which they may bo suspended from the
wai.-.t. Bowie-knives notUBed for bunting
aro carried in various ways, the most popular, becauso tho handiest lu case of emergency, being to suspend the knife under
tho  left arm, securing tho sheath to tbo
of tho armhole of tho vest by a spring
MERIT AND  "LUCK."
According lu Goettio the Twit Aro Very
Closely Uiiltu-I.
Tlio cbupter of accidents," it hti3 been
well and forcibly said, "is tlio Biblo of tho
j''remarks tbo author of tlie Way to
Fortune, This is ono of those sayings
tvbieh are apt only to seem smart nud
'strlkiiiir.lntt aro really deeper than they
look, if the world und all its affairs proceed according to purpose and moral law,
then it is clour tbat causation und uot iicol-
doni. obtains in the smallest thing as well
us in tho greatest, ouly wo aro purblind and
do nob perceive it, any more than the
senses, prisoned in thia "muddy vesture of
decay," can perceive the celestial music of
tho spheres which, indeed, is, after ull,
onothor and more poetical name for causation. Dean .Swift says: "Tho power of
fortune hcon tossed only by tho miserable,
for the happy impute all thoir success to
prudence or morlt."
"liiiailow men," says Emerson, "believe
in luck, believe in circumstance.; it was
somebody's niune, or it happened to be
thero at tho lime, or ho was so then, and
uiioiber day it would havo been otherwise.
Strong men believe iu cause and effect."
A nd a "ii in:
"AlUuecessfulmeii havo agreed in one
thiugT-thoy woro causation is ts. Tbey lio-
licvni I'liitlhiiiga wont uot by luck hut by
law; tnat lucre was not a weak or u cracked
link in tlio ohaln thut joins the lirst and last
of things."
Of all men tho poet should bo inclined to
'ccognizo some kind of propitious influence
as controlling tho destiny of Individuals, and
yet tbo greatest and most successful poets
have practically taught that tbey butievod
in uo such thing. And iu this reaped, if iu
uo other, pobtry has advanced from what
tho positivists would call tho motapliysical
to tho real or positive stage. No poet nowadays dooms of addressing himself for help
to tuut abstract and perfect personage, tlie
muse, who figured so prominently in poetry
(rom the days of Homer down to a coin; utva-
tively recent porlod. The poets lmve
learned self help. They not only believe,
but aot on tho belief lhat the inspiration is
within, and that only energy and sincerity
to self can develop thoir genius. So, therefore, Goethe declares that Industry U uitie-
teuthsof genius, and adds to it tliis axiom

Conscience and Kroutiari.
Maria Theresa, of Austria, was groatly
addicted to gambling, and played for exceedingly high stakes. Tho court functionaries did all in their power to overcome this
passion, but to no purposo. They finally
appealed to tho Empress's confessor, who
induced tho imperial gamester not to give
up curds, but to play for only a copper
kreutzer a point. Tho cunning Empress,
howover, ordered her jeweler to make her
100 kreutzers inn peculiar manner so thnt
eaoh ono could bo opened in tho middle and
a ducat inserted Tho two pieces woro put
together bo that only the Initiated know
that thoy were not what they soothed. Thui
tho Empress kept the letter of lhe confessor's demand and at tho same time on*
joyed the excitemontinwhiohsho delighted.

Tho Salt Lake Tribune tolls tho following
story about Brlgham Young: A good Lftt>
tor-day Saint says he remembers very well
how Brother Brlgham used to sent) over to
tho city hall whon ho was short, to seo
how much money thore was in the treat.
ury, that the samo might be loaned to the
Lord. Tho relator told bow ono day the
Bee-Hive Houso messonger came into the
hall with the exclamation: "Well, boys,
how muoh oash is thero to-day in the
treasury!" '-About eight thousand dollars," said tho treasurer. "Well, pack It
up, tho old mnn wants It," and tko eight
thousand dollars was "packed up," without any ado, and laid at tho feet of Brother
Brighum. Thore was no collateral of any
kind put up; tho loan was to tho Lord our
God, and tho Lord our God was Brlgham.
RoadorB who doubt the obovo may bo convinced by turning to Mrs. Btenhouso'a
book, and loam how Brother Brlgham ordered two hundred and seventy-five dollars' worth of bonnots of. her for his wives,
and then wrote on tho bottom of tho bill:
''You will bo credited this amount on your.

Tho members of Westminster football club have decided not to tako nny
part in tho match, Island vs. Mainland.
The majority of tho members consider
lhat Vancouvor assumed tou much in
challenging tlie islanders, on behalf of
the mainland, without first consulting
with the Westminster club, and therefore will take no part iii the proposed
match. Another gtiovance was tho
choice of tho team, in which Westminster may bo said to have had no
voice. What course the Vandouveritos
will now pursue is not known.

The work in whicli the collectors will

which undoubtedly they will.
A Correct Prediction.
Capt. Peole telegraphed to Donald
that snow and mud slides might be expected iu thu mountain division. On
tho following day the slides commenced
which resulted in tho detention of tho
Pacific express for two dnys. Capt.
Poole's observations and his knowledge
of the weather in general enabled him
to make this correct forecast. It is to
ho hoped the Dominion government
will Bee the advantage of establishing
a weather bureau at this point, whero.
(he mo3t accurate observations can be
taken for both coast and interior. It
might bo noted that Capt. Peelo's
close study and long experience in
tins connection eminently lit him for
the position of signal officor.
The Srioiv-sllileM,
From a paaaengor who arrived on
the delayed train thia morning tlio
causo uf tho detontion was learned.
On Tuesday a large anuwalido occurred
4 miles weat of Illecillewaet station
which struck a passing freight train,
badly wrecking two of the cars. Tho
engiuo and throo cars wero completely
hidden by tho snow, but no ono was
injured nnd no further damage done
than that mentioned abovo. A largo
gang of men wero soon work un the
"beautiful" and the track was clear
again on Thursday night. A few
smaller snow-slides occurred but did
net cauBe any lengthy delay. The
weather in the interior is warm and
tho snow is disappearing fast. Tho
streams are mimr and the proapoctB
are that the high water duo in Juno
will be less formidable than usual.
The flnndhead!. Channel.
Tho snagbout Samson haa returned
from the mouth uf tho river where ahe
was employed in replacing the channel
buoys which had been carried out of
their proper positions. Buoy No 2
was found to havo drifted close to No
1, at tho edge of tho golf. Buoy No G
was nearly full ef water and in a sinking condition. It had been Btruck by
tho propellor of a Bteamer and a hole
12x4 inches stove in tho small end.
Tho othor bouys were iu proper cendi-
tiou but rorjuiroa freah coat of paint.
Captain Grant sounded tho water on
tlie bar across tho Bandheads and found
lots of wator. It is a matter uf
general congratulation that tho department of public works haa placed the
channel buoys in charge of Capt. Grant,
who has a thorough knowledge uf all
that is required fur tho safety of navigation, nnd who, by the way, discovered
the new channel. Ho is the right man
in the right pluce.
