Tlio practice- of oromution is
Bpreadhitf rapidly in Italy. In forty-
two communities it has been adopted
to tho oxcluoion of every other
method of disposing of dead human
bodies, In twenty-one communities
furnaces liavo been in operation for
sevoral yeaars. In ninteon communities the authorities are trying to
raise money for the erection of
crematories.
Probably no more gorgeous* entertainment by ti private person has
been given in England than the
soiree in honor of the Shah given by
Sir Albert Sasoon. He took the
Empire Theatre, hung it with
flowers, and invited 1,500 guests,
who turned out in their most expensive style and mado an unprecedented company. Sir Albert is a
Bombay Jew.—Ex.
A friend of mine tell me, says a
writer in tho Epoch, that ho once
asked n man who for twenty-five
years kept a gambling house in one
of the New England States whether
tlie house played n fair game. The
reply wns:—"No ■ we had a spring
by whioh the roulette ball could be
pushed into red or black, odd or
oven. Wo nevor intended to play
fair, but we couldn't always help
ourselves, for that spring would get
out of ordor."
Says an exchange: Thoso who
arc acquainted with tho peculiar virtuos of a pillow made from
pitio straw in relieving sufferers
from lung or bronchial troubles may
not be suprised to learn that fino
soft pine-shavings are an cxcollant
substitute. People afflicted with
coughs, asthmatic and bronchial
complaints have derived much benefit from sleeping for a fow nights on
pillows or mattresses filled with
pi no-shavings.
Red rain fell recently in tho province of Lublin, Russian Poland. The
shower lasted for about ten miuutes.
The peasants, who mistook the red
liquid for blood, became panic stricken, and crowded to tho churches,
where they were quieted by the
priests. Several bottles of the red
rain wero sent to chemists and
mici-oscopists in Warsaw fpr examination. Eor several days aftor the
shower nil the surfaco water in
Lublin was a dark pink color.
Jim Garfield, as the late president
used to call his favorite son, Jamos
11., is in training for politics, and
his alliance with Miss Helen Newell,
of Chicago, daughter of President
John Newell, of the Lake Shore
road, whill not handicap him on any
sido. Jim is tho brainiest of the
boys Gen. Garfield left behind him,
and resembles tho early pictures of
his father very strikingly, with the
exception that ho wears glasses,
while his father did not. He is a
fine scholar, a fair orator, and is developing into a good lawyer.
How happy are tho Mussulman
students at tho University of Fez!
Says tho Revue Francaise. True,
they havo to riso nt 2.30 a. m. in
summer nnd fi a. in, in winter, and
their labors nro not over till 9.30
p. in. j thoy have but one holiday in
the wook, nnd on that they aro expected to practiso total abstineiico
both from studios and food. But
in revenge thoy have no oxaminn-
tions. Each professor knows how to
distinguish thoso of his hearers
whoso qualities render thom worthy
of a diplomn, which diploma is
highly valued, and gives thoso who
possess it a veritable prostiga in the
Mussulman world.
For years, says tho Philadelphia
Ledger, a herd of buffaloes have been
known to roam the Red Desert, in
Wyoming Territory, but for some
reason or other tho animals wero not
mueh disturbed by hunters. Lately,
howevtu', two ranchers, brothers
namod Williams, started out with
soveral cowboys to capturo the
beasts. The hunt lasted nearly
three days, and wns very exciting.
Two full-grown cows wero captured
tho first day, a big bull the next,
while a bull and a pair of females
rewarded tho hunters the third day.
They struggled fearfully, but eaoh
was finally pared with a heavy
work ox. Ono of tine captives, a
mastodon male, in bucking fell nud
broko bis neck. Steve Williams bad
a narrow escape the second day out.
A mail bull gored his horse,
lifting rider, saddle, nnd animal high in tho air. Ono of the
cowboys sent a rille ball into the
infuriated bruto's shoulder. Tho
hunters say thero aro botween 40
and HO full grown bison and a fow
calves in the hord.

Monday thero was a prizo light in the

in tlio ring ut 6 o'clock. Many spectators were present. The gladiators
shook hands aud then proceeded tu he-
labor each other, and not according to
any known rules. After the lint
round was concluded John Connors,
brother of ono of the pugilists, stooped
down and picked up something. Instantly ho wns shot in tho hoad by
Lewis Euo, brother of tho other combatant. This broke up the tight, a
doctor wtfa summoned, and the wound
dressed, Lowis Eno was arrested and
is now awaiting trial. John Conners
said he only picked up a small piece of
refuse, hut tho others thought it was a
stone. Eno says tho revolver was discharged prematurely nud shows a shattered tingor as evidence, v
A DOCTOU'S MISTAKE.
Montreal, Aug. 8—A one-year-
old infant died last week, and the doctor certified that it died from tuberculosis. Investigation reveals a remarkable state of affairs. It appears that
the medical man who attended the
child, by mistake prescribed bisulphate
of morphino, believing that was meant,
The child died from the effects of the
poison and tho doctor's mistake was
discovered, Ib wna then arranged
that the doctor should givo tho parents
$1000 and the druggists S5D to keep
tho affair a secret. This was done and
a cc r tiii cat j givon ns stated. The facts,
however, leaked out aud an investigation has been ordered.

A LONE TRAIN ROBBER.
Chippewa Falls, WiB., Aug. 8.—As
the Wisconsin Central train from the
east pulled into Cadott, twelvo miles
east of this city, a masked robber
beamed the train and proceeded to intimidate the porter. Tho conductor
was asleep and was robbod of his watch.
About a dozen passengers were in tho
Milwaukee sleeper, and several watches
and about 8150 wero scoured. The
Chicago sleeper was not entered, Tho
robber pulled tho bell-rope, nnd taking
a blanket from the coach jumped from
the train and disappeared. He is described as a small man, and the description of the robber tallies with that of
tho man who robbed the Milwaukee
and Northern train at Ellis junction
some days ago.
WELL DONE SFKECKLES,
San Fhancisco, Aug. 8.-Privato
letters received here show that Glaus
Spreckles, of tho California sugar refinery, was responsible for the recent
failure of tho great MadgeBburg Bugar
syndicate. When Spreckles waB in Germany recently prominent bankers ot
Berlin and Hamburg, who had agreed
to back the syndicate with several
millions, asked Spreckles what were
the chances for cornering the sugar
aupply of the world. Spreckles replied bluntly it shouldn't be done so
long as be Btayed in the field and controlled large cane plantations on Sandwich Island, and the beet sugar product of California. The German
bankers then declined to advance the
coin, whereupon the Magdesburg syu
dicate was forced to appeal to tho
American sugar trust, and thus tho details of the scheme to defraud the revenue by artificial coloring was exposed. Spreckles is straining every none
to increase the output of beet sugar in
California, and there is no question
that next season will seo a famous crop
raised, and uo less than two beet sugar
refineries constructed, ono in San Diego
comity nnd the other in Shasta or
Thama. The present refinery at Wat-
sonville will run throughout the year
when crop comes in this fall, whilo the
output of tho Sandwich Islands, of
which Spreckles controls nearly two-
thirds, will be larger than for many
years.

SOME PARTICULARS   OF   THE   SPOKANE
Tax.
Spokane Falls, Aug. O.—The scene
at the fire was appaling and beggars
description. There waa insufficient
water. A few bucketsful applied whon
the fire started wonld bave saved the
city, The fire literally burned itself out,
and so rapidly that all was over in a
four hours. On Post Btreet the Pacific hotel was the first building of importance to succumb. Tho flames
leaped across First street, going north
on eaoh side of Post atreet, burning
blook after block. Thon it was that
buildings were blown up with powder
in the course of the flames to check the
tire, but the wind became more violent
and a heavy gale blew in a northwesterly direction, filling the air with burning embers, which Boon ignited several

ihu river on tlio nortii and Washington street on tho east. Tho C, and C.,
the Echo Roller, the oatmeal mill*-.,
and tho immense system of lumber
nulls and lumber yards, all located
along tho river in tho burnt district,
were only saved by the magnificent
firo apparatus with whioh eaoh one is
supplied. The Pacific, Windsor,Graml,
Washington, Keystone and United
States hotels, nnd every restaurant aro
ashes. Tho Spokane National
Bank, the First National Bank, Exchange National, Citizens' National,
Traders' National, Bank of Spokane,
Brown National and Spokane Savings,
aro all in ashes. Six of tho banks
have resumed business in temporary
quarters. Among the largo structures
that lay in ruins are the Frankfoit,
Washington, Eagle, Tull, Post oflice
Block, Hyde, Wolverton, Van Durn
and Bentley, Keats, Ides and tho Arlington, with a largo number of other
large and substantial brick and stone
structures in courso of construction
which will bo torn down and rebuilt,
owing to the damage. For a fow days
there may bo sumo suffering, but as
soon as provisions arrive it is thought
all the suffering will bo rolicvod. The
insurance, as far as ia ascertained
amounts to nbout $2,500,000, which
is thought to bc about one-fourth tho
amount of the losses sustained.

London, Aug. 7.—Tho Emperor

emperor, in responding, spoko in high
praise of tho British fleet, which, ho
said, was the linest in tlie world.

fully equal to her wants, and if the
British fleet as fully met the deminds

Sails $ritteh Columbian
Thnrwlaj Evening, August 8,1880.
Queer paper, the Times.   It admits to be somewhat astonished that
Tub Columbian should be ''good-
natured, evon cordial,"   "notwithstanding tho disastrous consequences
wliich attended The Columbian's
analogical deal."   Our bump of sympathy is certainly pretty protuberant, but  our   cotemporary   surely
does not expect us to go into sackcloth and ashes becauso it has had
a disastrous engagement with "an
analogy."   Then the Times proceeds
to draw comparisons between that
paper nnd this, with tho object of
trying to prove that tlio Times is an
independent paper and The Columbian isn't,    "if it was the habit of
The Columbian to take tho government to task occasionally," says our
cotemporary, "we might tako somo
stock in Its alleged independence,
but sinco it swears by John, John
can do no wrong, wo nro bound to
infer that it is ns much the slave to
political interests as it accuses tho
Times of being."   "John" is our co-
temporary's  familiar   nnd  elegant
way of  referring to tho provincial
secretary and new premier.   Well,
this same ""John"—only we haven't
referred to the honorable gentleman
iu those terms (which is probably
the reason why the Times has never
noticed it)—has como in for considerable adverse criticism, directly or as
to his policy in certain matters, in
these columns, during tho last year.
Of course, wo havo not gono about
it in tho rabid way which characterizes tho Times1 partisan attacks.   If
wo woro nn opposition organ, and
blackguarded  tho government, and
particularly "John," every day in
the week, we could get a first-class
diploma from  the Times for being
"the most independent paper in the
province."   Such  is evidently our
cotemporary's   idea of journalistic
independence.    "Independent" op
position journals of that sort aro the
material for the most abject, "thii"
aild-thin"   government   supporters
when   their   party changes place-'
with tho "ins."   There's no independence nbout them ; but they get
n good deal of credit for independence, or boldness, for the reason
that attacks upon the "powers that
bo," particularly if  tho   "powers'
"havo boon" for a considerable term,
are more or less popular with not a
few.   After stating that it "is tho
most independent paper in the province," tho Times begins to make excuses for itself as follows • "If it has
not assailed the opposition it is bo
cause tho opposition litis made no
mistakes, is responsible for no bad
legislation."   It is rather amusing
to  hear the Times talking in this
way.    Wo uro not going to arraign
the   opposition, it is hardly a live
question just now, but wo venture
to say that if loss benign oyes than
thoso of the Times wore to look into
their record, a few "mistakes" would
bo found.    Thore is this to be said
for tho  opposition,   however, and
which provokes another smile at tho
Times* naivete, and that is that tho
"loyal opposition" in this pVovince
hnvo beon so terribly reduced during
the last half a decade--numbering
only six   or  seven   in  a house of
twenty-seven—that they lmve been
happily beyond doing much mischief.
So the Times, not being a very good
marksman,   may   be   excused   for
doing   all   its tiring at the much
broader mark presented by the government  and their largo working
majority, with the certainty of hitting a man, nt least, threo times to
every one   that it  could score a
similar mark   if  its gatting were
directed against tho forlorn opposition ranks.   There is a saying thai
there are no good Indians but dead
ones.    Perhaps tho opposition may
claim  n similar posthumous reputation.
Were tho Times telling the gospel truth, something to which that
journal is not vory much addicted,
when it advanced the rather amusing argument that the members of
the present provincial government
wero lapsing into n state of "senile
decay" und "abandoning the use of
their faculties," there would still bo
the most rainbow-colored prospects
for the administration. Dr. Brown-
Sequard's remarkable discovery,
according to ull accounts, will soon
leave no excuse for a man, or woman either, to grow old. Tho discoverer, or inventor, of tho rejuven-
ator in question, which threatens to
mako him the most famous man
living or dead, has been for a number of years, it is stated, conducting
a number of puthological experiments upon animals, with a view 0f
ascertaining tho affects upon their
systems of a certain distillation of
animal properties diffused through
their arteries by moans of hypodermic injection. Tho result of his in
vestigations, it is declared, reads
like n page from a weird tale of the
old necromancers und othors who
sought all their livos for tho elixir
of lifo. Br. Brown-Sequard has,
according to the accounts of the
Parisian pross, solved tho problom
of maintaining perpetual youth,
We are henceforth not to understand the meaning of pain, and the
next generation will reao] with wonder and a fooling of scornful pity
tho accounts of the  physical   ailments and tortures by which the
minds of many of the world's greatest men havo been hampered and
dragged to earth.   The doctor has
experimented upon himself and he
now surnrises his friends,   He was
an enfeebled septuagenarian, racked
with tho diseases to which old age
is prono, and enwrapped   with nn
iiulifloronce   to   worldly    matters
wliich comes with   tho   knowledge
that participation is onco and forever impossible.   Now this   is all
changed.    His   step   is   light,   his
form as erect, nnd his oyc3 ns bright
asa man in the glory of his manhood.
He is as active as a. four-year-old
colt.    He has entered again   with
zest into the diversions and occupations of society, in which  in   his
youth ho was seldom seen but always  welcome, and   it is rumored
that his good lady begins to think
bim .so fascinating that sho is positively uneasy whon any fair demoiselles aro visiting at his residence.
Indued, tho old man himself is so
youthful  and   vivacious   that   tho
charm of  cotemporary   femininity
lias declined for him, and ho feels
all the enthusiasm for a beautiful
woman that he experienced in his
golden  youth.    Thero is no doubt
about it, his elixir has certainly ro*
juvenatod him, and Madame Brown-
Sequard has already discharged two
attractive    housemaids   in   consequence of tho paternal appreciative
spirit displayed   towards   thom by
her spouse, when thoy opened the
front door to him upon his return
from a gallop in tho Bois de Boulogne, or a visit   to  somo  of his
youthful  medical   brethren.     Tlio
old gentleman has resumed his acquaintance with the opera and tho
fashionable-resorts of Paris, and he
invariable wears a most   becoming
houtonkrre in his coat,    It was dis
covering her spouse in tho act of
transferring his dainty bunch of carnations from his own button-hole to
the bosom of one of his devoted domestics that convinced Madame that
it would   be better  to havo more
elderly servants about  tbo   houso,
Tho doctor was indignant, and tho
girls tearful, but Madame was inexorable.     All   pleasantries    aside,
however, this alleged discovery, at
last, of tlm "elixir of life" is attracting tho serious attention of the savants   of   tho  civilized   world, and
their   pronunoiamiehto    will    bo
awaited with interest, if notanxioty.
Tho exact nature of tho "elixir" and
its manner of application is described
as follows;    Tlio discoverer cuts out
certain parts of living animals, such
as guinea pigs, and tho pieces of
guinea pigs, and the pieces of quivering flesh, pounded  together by the
postle und mortar of pharmaceutical
oommerce, aro made into a kind of
paste with water.   The essence of
this   compound    is   then  injected
tinder the skin of tho pationt with
a syringe similar to that employed
by tho votaries of morphine.    Not
a very nice compound -,or process,
perhaps, to fastidious minds, but
thoso who will quarrel with it on
thoso accounts will be precious few,
if it is authoritatively demonstrated
that   it  will   accomplish   what is
claimed for it.

THE CHEVALIER'S TALE.
AH its Artistically Lurid Effects
Were "Wasted.
Several yenrs ago whilo traveling through
i sparsely-Bottled portion of Nebraska, Ihad
ho misfoi-tuno to miss conncctiomi at an
iui>oi-tho-way junction, and was compelled,
villi perhaps twonly-iivo other passengers,
0 spend seven hours in tho dingy waiting*
uom of a typical frontier railway station.
Iy companions in misfortuno wero garru-
Diis liind-scelccrsandcowboys-and, deapitfi
larupat effort, I did not succeed iu changing
lie topic of their rude conversation.
Toward eight o'clock the rain, whioh had
icon pouring down in sheets, ceased, and I
lought refuge on tho narrow platform. Tho
rain which was to carry mo to ray destino-
ionwasduo atOilOp.m. I had hod noth*
ng to eat sinco bIx o'clock in tho morning,
uut my promenade in tho cool evening air
lid not lessen tho pang of hunger by any
m-aiis, I folt at outs with ovory thing and
ivory body. A quarrel, no matter what
night have been its consequences, would
iavo proved a welcome diversion.
I thought of all tho disagreeable things
hat had ovor cast a shadow ovor my happi-
icss, and planned all sorts of reveugetul
clicines, whoa I was npproaohed by a dark-
hinued stranger, dressed in a conventional
nit of black, whoso presence among tha
(■lateralis crowd in tho waiting-room I
ml not noticed.
Curiosity, which In mo is developed to a
iiirprifijng extent, now superseded my less
i-rrccnblo train of thought, and whon tho
ciillcman In black saluted mo hy raising
Is lint and bowing politely X began to won*
ler what ho might bo doing in tho wilds of
[ohruska.
"Monsieur," asked tho stranger, "you
bad French?"
"I do," I replied, after returning his sanations.
"Then you will oblige mo hy reading this
i iiimsiTipt"—hero ho handed me an envoi-
pe containing thirty-live or forty sheets of
apor—1'and disposing of its contents as you
eo fit."
After utterlug theso words the mystori-
tis stranger wbo, despite his perfoot En-
hah, Kivmcd to mo a foreigner, again
owed and disappeared.
At tho Bamo moment tho train for which
had been waiting so long arrived at the
Latlon. X found a comfortable seat near
no of tho car lamps, and, actuated by curl-
sity and a personal Intorest In the mag*
ctio writer, X began reading the manu-
cript intrusted to me.
Tho document was n confession—a con*
sssion of crimes bo incredible, so start*
ng, that oven aftor arriving at my dostl*
ation I could And no rest; and for many
;hls hideous nightmares disturbed my

1 mado desperate efforts to And tbo
runner, but without success; and, finally,
soling convinced that ho had terminated
is existence violently, concluded to pub-
■h suoh portions of tho manuscript as
light bo of interest to tho publio, and par-
cutarly to peace ofllcors, who aro fro-
lently unablo to fathom tho mysteries

' THE CONFESSION.
"My namo is Prosper do Belamy. X was

"At last X was in a position to begin tho

burban gardens at night.
"Do not for n moment think, howovor,

"For four months, perhaps tha happiest
rind of my life, I led a vagabond's exist*

o Charlos Dickons' funny charaotor, 'for

polled you to confide In mo tbootoryol

Honoro, and you havo beon my tool over
since. * * * At firBt X mado yon perform all sorts of. silly tricks iu yonr room.
By and by I sent you on fools'errands to
different parts of tho houso. You acted
like a somnambulist, but always porformoil
tho duties required by mo. * * * As my
induonco over you grow, my desire for furthor experiments becamo a craze; and from
foolery I led you to crlmo.  * * *
" -In my youthful days I had beon jilted b*.
a youug woman. My lovo for her hnd
changed into hatred. For years I had
waited for an opportunity to revenge myself. Tlio opportunity camo with you. 1
Imbued you with tho idea to kill thi-:
woman's only surviving child, a girl su
teen years of ago. X guided your stops
through the streets loading to her"house,
and you performed tho deed as I wished i1
to bo performed. I will not enter iuto the
details of tlio crlmo which afforded mo moro
genuine pleasure than I had felt for. years.
You rcliiruL'd to your room, whero I ltopi
you in a semi cataleptic stnto, until my do
Biro for revenge, which had grown after
tho slaughter of its first victim, compelled
mo to sond you ou a second mission. * «
* This timo you plunged o dagger in the
heart of tho woman's husband. Once morn
I allowed you to rest-only to prepare you
for a third crime. AU Paris was horror-
stricken whoa it hoard that Mino. R—,
tho only survivor of a family whoso othor
members hud beon assassinated within
four mouths, had been found dead in her
bod with a pohjard In her bosom, ^pugg*,
mice had been initio, I was satisfied, both
with my powor over you'and tho results It
Intd accomplished. I freed you from bond-
ago. You became a popular physician, u
successful politician, a favorito of society.
I was glad of your buccobb, for as I grow
older I began to repent of ray wicked deeds,
and now, on tho brink of tho gravo, I I'col
it iny duty to communicate to you tho part
you played as an instrument to my revenge.
" 'Morally, myyoungfriend, you nro guiltless of tho crimes committed by your hands.
I am convinced of that, after carefully considering tho mattor. But would tho law
look upou tho deeds in this light? I doubt
it. My rcvengo was cruel, but my anguish
at this moment is moro terrible than wob
tno physical pain experienced by my, by
your victims.
'Prosper, forgive my selfishness. Beck
a refuge in some far-away land and pray
for tho soul of tho man who betrayed you!1
* * * "And now I am aimlessly tramping through the frontier territories ol
America. Tho last of Simon's blood-money
is spent. My lifo, nfailurefrom its start,
is drawing to its close. May ho who raids
theso linos judgo me mercifully. In ull
thoso deeds of wickedness X was but the
unconscious instrument. And yet they
havo brought mo to want, to misery, to
degradation, from which thero is no oscapu
but doath. Before another sun sets I will

Woro I a sonsatioual or untruthful story
toller, I would closo my narrative with tho
Chevalier do Bolamy's slgnaturo, uud allow
tho reader to pondor over lho sad fato of n
wrecked lifo. Truth, however, compels mo
to add another chapter,
A fow montha aftor Ihad prepared this
story for publication, and while tho Iinnres-
bIous created by tho confession wero yot
fresh in my memory, I visited n friend ii
Movillo, In tho courso of my rambler*
through tho streets of that beautiful city .1
eutorod tho lobby of tbe principal hotel for
tho purposo of buying a cigar.
Imngino ray surprise wJieti I bohald loaning against tho cashier's desk 1 ho form ut' r

this moment the man turned his head.
HiB oyos mot mine, and I knew tlmt 1 lind
mado no mistake Had tho unfortunate
fellow repented his aulcldal resolution and
had ho concludod to resume tho struggle
for existence? Tbeso woro tho questions
which presented tbomselvos to mo. While
thoughts liko this wero rushing through
my head tho Frenchman approached nio,
and bowing with'tho samo graco that had
characterized him at tho Nebraska railway
station, said:
"Glad to moot you again, bIi\"
I will not punish tho reador by ropoatin*:
our conversation, which was closed with the
following remarks:
"When I met you in NobraBkn I mistook
you for n tenderfoot from tho East who hud
como Wcstto invest In land. After liandhlg
you my confession—an excellent document,
as you will admit—I followed you to your
destination. I stopped at your hotel," in a
room adjoining yours. Tho noxt mdriilng J
found out that X had been a fool—in other
words, that instead of being a capitalist you
woro nothing but a poor scribbler. I know
that it would bo useless to try and blood
you. You cau't squeeze blood out of a
turnip, you know. I avoided you, regretting tho loss of my neatly-written manuscript. Two days later I mado tho acquaintance of n young man after my own
heart, who—it is hardly necessary to say—
rolicvcd iny misery and my cousclcnco by
applying a plaster of greenbacks. Ab I my

I was too astonished to reply to the
rogue's glib talk. But beforo ho loft mo 1
managed to ask:
"Then you aro not a'FrenchmanI You
aro not tho Chovalier doBoluuiyl"
"No," ho ropllcd, bowing nonchalantly,

LADIES   LOSING WATCHES.
An Iiivostlgutliig Itt-portor Toll! WIic-m-
They Should Wear Thom,
Going Into somo of tho largo stores up
town ono may notico that many of tlto
young womon behind tho counters who are
so fortunate as to ponsoau wtitohon hnve the
rings at tho stems of their tlmo-pleee-
drawn through holos ln their jerseys and
fastened down securely by a button, so thai
a watch could not bo removed without qui to
an effort, and certainly not without its
wearer knowing about It This is n scheme
of wearing a watch that has gono into f ash-
lon in tho stores, nnd it' has a subsiautiiil
and sonsiblo basis. Recently a groat many
watches havo boen stolon or lost, and in the
lost and iound columns of the Hurnld t
larger numbor than usual havo boon report
" From tho Bmoll number reported no
found compared with the largo num her imported as lost, it is apparent that cither.' ■<■
honesty of the people who have been find i,:
watches on tlio curbstones lately is m a \ er,,
low standard, or elso tho watches woro
really not lost in the eonso intended Uy tlio
advertisers, bnt stolon. It has been qulio
fashionable for ladies, especially f^r lliono
engaged in tho stores, towcar tlicir watuh
os in thoir bosoms, with fobclitun i hanging out of tho button-holes of thoir Jcrsuyu.
In most of tho cases whoro watches have
boon lost tbo wearers had grown cureless,
and to savo timo and to hnvo tho time-
pieces as available an mon havo theirs,
thoy had juBt tucked them iu between ! he\v
coi'BOt covers and tho corsets, Instead o!
inside tho corsets as most ladles, it i-t believed, do. Thus worn, thoy wero tin invi
tattou loa pickpocket, and in tho crowdi.
on the horoo-cara uud forrles just after
tlio closing hours of tho stores it was an
easy matter for an export thief to plaits n
"haul." A lady who lives at tho othor end
of Beacon stroet had ihumlsfortuno loti mi
a watoh on ono of tho slroots down town
tho othor duy, and sho advertised It In Ihu
Herald. Tho applicants who callod right
away after tho appoarnnoo of tho advci'tiaO'
incut were bo numerous that It wnsaper-
Bon's work to attend tho door. The lndy

The Smoke Nuisance.
Tho smoky condition of the atmosphere to-day was a genuine nuisance,
being so dense that tho sun looked ua
if it wns undergoing a prolonged and
indefinite eclipae. Objocta at over
200 yards distance presented a blurred
and rather "groggy" appearance, and
during the wholo forenoon tho opposite
sido of tho rivor could not bo distinguished. Tho ntoamors leaving port
this morning kept the echoes vory busy
tossing tho whistlo Bounds from one
bank of tho river to the other and
buck again, Vancouver is nfllictod
just as badly as tho royal city, and
chief uf polico Stewart telephoned
over this morning imploring Cnpt.
Peelo to bring about a rain storm with
the least possiblo delay, Our Victoria
despatches announce that tho gulf,
straits and capital city itself is enveloped iu a cloud nf dense smoko,
which is likely to seriously interfere
with navigation. All reports from
Washington Territory Bay that the
bush fires aro not decreasing iu volume
but aro rather on tho increase, and
tho amount of valuable timber being
destroyed is sor-iothing tremendous.
Tho telegraph service still continues iu
a very disordered state.
Col. E. G. Prior, M. P., returned to
Victoria last night on the steamship
Islander from his three weeks' trip to
Kamloops and the surrounding districts. He went from Kamloops to
Okuuagan- and then through tho
wholo of tho ralley and tho Indian
reservation. Tho valley is looking
splendid, and on the whole tho yield
uf the crops will bo excellent. The
discovery of a new valloy has boen reported forty miles from Okanogan,
which the Indians say is equal, it not
superior to Okanngan itself. At Clinton tho crops are very poor, en account of tho scarcity uf water this
seasun. Tho heat throughout th'
Kamloops district ia intense at tho
present time, ond old settlers say that
it is tho hottest summer they have experienced for soveral years,—Wednesdays Colonist.
Successful Iiu rain ey.
Last uight, between 10 and 12
o'clock, tho drug stare of Campbell it
Co., at the cornor of Douglas and Fort
streets, waa forcibly entered through a
back window, and the safe rifled of
most of its cash, Mr. Campbell left
the storo about 0;30 and returned
again shortly after twelve to count and
put away tho cash iu the till, when he
found that the inner eufo door had
been unlocked and §207-25 in coin and
bills had been taken. Tho small cash
boxes which contained the money
were on the floor in front of the safe,
one of (hiin having a few dollars in
silver and thu other ten or twelve doi
lars in gold unci notes. Tlio failure of
the burglar to take all tlio monoy in
sight, and to go through tho money
drawer in the counter, is pretty clear
proof that hu was disturbed before ho
had got through with his search after
treasure. The outer door of the safe
(which is a small ono with a combination luck) bad boon left open until
tho proceeds of tho day's sales wero
put away; and it is quite evident that
the burglar was provided with the
right kind of a koy, nno of peculiar do-
sign, to unlock the inner iron dour.
Ho is cither a professional at the business or elso ho is familiar with tho
placo and the safe, for which a special
key was required,— Wednesday's Times.

The Black Diamond.
A representative of the Colonist saw
Mr. Frank, of the firm of Guttmnn &
Frank, ou Tuesday after his return
from San Francisco. Ho said: "I
wasn't very greatly surprised to find
tlio Black Diamond in harbor when 1
returned from San Francisco. The
action of Capt. TJiomas was only what
I wouldhiivucxpectedutiderthocircum-
stances. Ho had orders from us to resist any rubbery on tbe hif'h seas. You
will remember that two years ago onr
schooner, the Alfred Adams, was captured in precisely lho sumo manner by
tho Rush, and escaped iu the samo
way. I look un tho action of tho
American oflicers iii breaking opon the
Inciter of tho cabin of tho Diamond
and abstracting tho captain's papers aa
nothing short of piracy. I would juat
ns soon have had the vessel sunk right
awny as tho surest moans of bringing
the question to a head. To-monow
thu Black Diamond will como along
aide of the wharf, and I will then tako
poflseasiou of all her papors, and get
the crow to make uflidavita regarding
tho circumstances of tho seizure, so
that 1 can have a substantial claim for
tho damages I intend to try to get
from tho American government. Tn
Sail Francisco, whore 1 havo beon for
six weeks, it is contended by tho authorities that tbo United States revenue
cutters huvo boon givon carte blanche
to deal with scaling schooners ns thoy
liko. 1 don't boliove this. 1 will get
tho crew to mako their affidavit to-day
and I'll loan no time in [tutting iu my
chum for substantial damages."
