from an unknown locality in southern Mexico measures 4 by 3 by I

in tho interior it is so plentiful ns to
bo used for making firos.
Including thn Pasteur Institute

According to Mr. Phincas S,
Abraham, there can bo but little
doiibt that leprosy is really inoreas-
ing in parts of India, in south Africa, and in somo of the West Indian colonics, but it is making little
or no progress, or is even disappearing, iu Australia, New Zealand and
Canada. Tho census of 1881 gavo
131,018 lepers for British India,
but the number is thought to have
been much too low.
I'loniiNO A Pest.—In Cypress
tho eggs of locusts are gathered, and
the developed insects aro caught in
systems of screens. The quautity
of eggs collected was 37 J tons in
187!), 236 tona ill 1880 and 1330
tons in 1881. More than 6,000
Screens were used in 1882, .196,000,-
000,000 insects were destroyed;
whilo in 1886 there were moro than
11,000 soreens and 13,000 traps,
the former representing an aggregate length of about 315 miles.
A BiiONzrt Buijdiia.—Tho largest
and most remarkable of the anciont
bronze images of Japan is at Nara,
a little to the east of Kioto, This
is about 800 years old, is 53^ feet
high and more than 28 feet across
tho shoulders. It has 066 curls on
its bead, and is surrounded by a
halo 78 feet in diamoter, bearing 16
images each 8 feet long. The figure
is said to consist of 500 pounds of
gold, 16,287 pounds of tin, 1!)54
pounds of mercury und 986,080
pounds of copper. Two smaller
images, each 25 feet high, stand
beforo tho larger one.
Ooloh of Eves and Hair.—
From M. Topinard's observations on
the color of eyes and hair in 180,-
000 persons in Franco many interesting results have been deduced.
Ono of the most curious is that a
raco formed from a mixture of
blondes and brunettes shows tho
hereditary blonde element in the
eyos, the brunette in tho hair, this
tendency accounting for tho variety
of a combination of light hair and
dark eyes. The assertion thnt tho
Amerioans—a preeminently mixed
race— are fast becoming a dark-
haired and blue-eyed nation is in
accordance with this law.

Germination Undkh Eleotrio
Influence,—In experiments by Mr.
H. N. Warren, pads of cotton were
saturated with a dilute saline solution nml sown over tho surface with
common mustard seed, then placed
upon platinum plates connected with
four constant ferric chloride cells.
Germination over the positive plates
becamo distinctly visible in less
than twenty four hours, and the
(-rowtli was more than nn inch and
of intensity grcon color at the end
of n week. The germination over
the neuitavo plato scarcculy commonced in the week and was almost
whito. On reversing tho eurront,
the ■jreen plates withered, and the
othors nourished for a time and then
also faded. The bleaching is belioved to have been due to thu liberation of chlorine, and not to tho
direct notion of tho current.
Duhauimtv ov Oolohs.—A study
of ihe action of light on water-colors
hau been made by Dr. Russell and
Oapt. Alnoy. They find that blue
light hits the greatest effect, green
less, nnd red rays the minimum in*
fluencc. Dampness hastens fading,
but heat does not appear to atlect it,
aud ull pigments are permanent in
a vacuum. Mineral colors are far
moro stable than vegetable. Of
thirty nino single colors examined,
twelve woro not acted upon by light,
viz: Yellow ocher, Indian reel, Venetian red, burnt sienna, chromo yellow, lemon yellow, raw sienna, terra
verte, chromium oxide, Prussian
blue, cobalt, French blue, and ultramarine ash—all except Prussian
bluo being purely mineral pigments.
Permanent mixtures were; Raw
sinna and Venetian red, raw sienna
and Antwerp blue, cobalt and Indian red. Carmine, crimson and
scarlet Inke, Payne's grnyand Naples
yollow wore the moat fugitive of
colors examined.

INHUllltRCriON A'1' HONOLULU.
San PitAKOisco, Aug. 10,-—News
hu-* reached hero of » desperate attempt to overthrow the government of
the Sanwioh Inlands. The Paiijk

of July IIIhI miya: Two half whito

Boyd, who bud beuu t-mit ul the gov*
ernmuut's expimBe to ba educated at
an Italian m iii tat y sc1h>'>1, hud been
plotting an insurrection lor some time,
but current rumors wore littlo heeded
until the movement culminated iu an
iirnieil bund of about a hundred and
fifty nntives marching from Put mini to
Honolulu nml entering the palace
ground.-, arriving at Man I; a gatppf the
palaco at four in tho morning. The
Fttlama rioter-- wero joined by othur

rebels knocked at the pulace gates and
demanded admittance, uud finally
forced their way inside the gates.
Then they demanded thu surrender of
tho palace of L. S. Parker, but ho rofused. Seeing this stubborn resistance many rebols deserted, but Wii-
cox maintained his position with the
150 who remained. A general alarm
was spread through the city by tele*
phono and the Honolulu rifles were
ordered to repott at their armory. A
cabinet couucil wus held early in the
forenoon, ut which weru determined
vigorous measures. Col. V. V. Ash-
ford was appointed to command the
government forces. Ho went to the
King street entrance of the palace
grounds, but not before several shots
hud been exchanged between the rebels nnd tho Honolulu rifles. The
rioters had turned a field pieco on the
sharpshooters, who had found a lodgment in the opera house commanding
the pulace ground. The field pieces were
soon silenced by the fire of the sharpshooters. Byelevonin the morning
the rebels had all tikcn shelter in a
bungalo iu the palace grounds, and
thu tire, of tho rifles Imd slackened to an
occasional shot as a rioter came iu
range. The afternoon advanced, and
deserters from the rebels began to
como in who gave nows that demoralization had sot in among thB rebels.
About thirty surrendered at one
o'clock. At half past five giant powder bombs were thrown at buildings
where tho rebels were hid, and after an
hour's bombardment, they surrendered
and were locked up.

on the terms mentioned and payment
of occured costi.

General Boulanger before lho high

that General Boulanger heli- a veritable political court at Cluiiient-l-'er-

wrote to the war ofirce disclaiming
any peraonul connection with wiuu ],ad
been done in his mime. Che pro*
eureur wub hero interrupted by vigorous protests from tho senator of tho
right against the severity of his language. But ho was Btill mo;o aevore
when allowod tu proceed. Tho documents before the court, he said, marked General Boulanger's downward
path from insubordination to intrigue,
falsehood and conspiracy, Tho evidence showed that General Boulanger
tried to have Prince Bismarck informed that he (Boulanger) only ( estr'ed to
be appointed consul for life.

Wo have not heard of a writ being
issued yet for tho election which
will be necessary in Lillooet district
to fill tbo vacancy occasioned by tho
death of tho late Hon. A. £ fi,
Davie, but tbe document will be out
shortly, wo suppose. In the meantime the electors of Lillooet should
be ensting about them for a lit and
propor person from among themselves to represent them in tho legislature. It is moro than probable
that such an ono enn be found, nnd
it will obviate tho rather humiliating and undesirable expedient of be
stowing their suffrages upon nn absentee, a non-residont, one whoso
interests are all elsewhere than in
the district ho would thus represent (?) Thero may hnvo been some
excuse for tliis sort of thing in pnst
years in the province, but thoro is
none now. In all cases mainland mon
at least should represent mainland
constituencies. The only exception
thut should be tolerated to this rule
is in the case of members of the
cabinet, who must, of course, reside
ut the capital, wherever their constituencies might be. With this
necessary exception, howover, we
hope to seo tho principle wo have
urged obtaining in all elections in
tho provinco in future.
Dr. Milne has consented to aot as
a sounder for the opposition shallows, and will try conclusions with
Mr. Theodore Davie in Victoria.
Dr. Milne is generally conceded to
bo quite eligible as a candidate, nnd
would make a good representative,
but it is very difficult to imagine on
what grounds the electors of the
capital would refuse to re-elect Mr.
Davio and return his opponent,
whon tho former would give his constituents representation both in the
houso aud tho government, and the
latter must, for tho remainder of
this parliament at least, rest under
the disability of the very cold shades
of a forlorn opposition. It is quito
a foregone conclusion that Mr. Davie
will bo returned. He has shown no
disloyalty to his constituency in tho
paat and may be counted on to zealously furthor its interests in the
future, We confess wo can see no
sense in the new attorney-general's
Itombustics about tho "Northern
Railway," but then, his constituents,
ucct-pting the spirit of that utterance, will probably love him all the
better for it. We have been considering Mr. Davie's candidature
from the point of view of the electorate to which ho is diroctly responsible, and can seo no reason why he
should not have practically a walkover. From a provincial standpoint,
viewing him as attorney-general and
n member of the government, there
can lio no doubt, we think, that a
better, though perhaps not an abler,
man has gono before. However,
Mr. Theo. Davio was undoubtedly
tho best material at the government's
disposal, nnd his standing as a lawyer, particularly as a criminal lawyer, is n guaranteo of his sufficiency
for l bo specific duties of his portfolio. As to the new cabinot as a
whole, it is, as over, composed of
picked men, and the most casual
observer having any acquaintance
with men nnd measures in British
Columbia must admit that the provincial government is still a strong
model too many young mon try to
follow. They scoff at religion, because it is .manly* they plunge
into dissipation, because it is
manly, and they deny the dictates of thoir conscience, because
they fear to withstand tho ridicule
of the egoists they worship. These
may seem exaggerated words, but
we have only to look about us to
verify them. The actions of the
young men in our colleges prove it,
the habits of the young men in our
cities demonstrate it. There ean
be no doubt that a spirit of selfish
disregard of tho nobler sentiments
is taking a fast hold upon the young
men of tho period. The fad philosophies of cotemporary popularity
fan this spirit of egotistic agnosticism, aud the seeming inability of
the cIuutJ ito counteract the teachings
of tho modern European casuist
prevents the formation of a healthy
reactionary movement. The young
men of tho nation must themselves
cast off these evil influences and
come to a truo understanding of
their duty to themselves and
others. Tho enemy lies not so
much iu temptation of the flesh,
as in the cynical pessimism! which
is prevuding society, scoffing at
sincerity, undermining moral sense,
and obscuring tlnty. It is an evil
for which tho philosophers of modern Europe are responsible, and if
we Auu'ricans are to be national in
our sentiment, wo must uproot the
seeds of this alien philosophy and
develop a spirit of reverence for
truth, morality, and God,
The present age is ono of almost
open agnosticism. Thero is a
marked yearly increaso of unbelief
among the younger members of the
community, remarks America, an
_ independant secular magazine, published in Chicago, which is noted
for its outspokenness on all questions affecting tho American commonwealth. It is co be feared that
its remarks on thn subject will apply in a measure elsewhere than in
the States, and its comments which
follow are certainty worthy of being
read and pondered by tho young
everywhere. We do not refer to the
middle und lower classes so much as
to tho so-called upper class—tho
young men of wealth, education,
and position—continues America,
and adds: The skepticism they
display is, indeed, alarming; and
unless measures are taken to check
its i-proad, tbe most serious consequences will onsuo. Ko irreligious
. people can be long prosperous; the
lack of faith of some sort is destruction to morality and honor, as believing in no supreme power there
aro no ties of belief to curb the passions of tho agnostic or infidel, The
desire which young mon feel to be
classed as mon of the world is
another of the ovil influences which
are at work insiduously undermining
the morals of tho republic. The
Idol they erect is a creature without
manly instinct or feeling, a being
whoso entire organization is of selfish composition, and who views
lifo merely ns an egoist. He is an
apostle of Epicurus, whose sole
ambition is to experience pleasure-
ablo sensations, and who omploys
any tnouns to gain his ends, Truth, I
honor, virture, uud sentiment nro
scorned by him as unworthy of the
nan of tho world.   This is the
Most peoplo like to indulge more
or less in ice wator during the warm
weather, but a good many aro
restrained from a fear that it is not
just safe. The editor of a sanitary
journal is of the opinion that there
is a great deal of sentiment and
many opinions regarding the use of
ice water that vanish when the light
of reason and experience is turned
upon them, and continues as follows:
The fact* is that ice water, drank
slowly and in moderate quantities,
constitutes n healthful and invigorating drink. Thero is no doubt that
ice is a great sanitary agent, and
every family ought to be provided
with it during the warmer months
of tho year. It is truo that the inordinate use of ice water, or its use
under some special conditions and
circumstances, is attended with
great danger; so is the improper use
of any other drink or food. The assumption thnt iced water is dangerous, and that iced tea, or iced collee,
or iced lemonade is a harmless substitute, is simply a delusion. As
the source of danger feared hy some
is the degree of cold, wo fail lo see
clonrly how flavor modifies the ellect
of temperature. There aro individuals, undoubtedly, who cannot
drink ice water without injury, and
who ought never to use it, but to a
great majority of persons it is refreshing and healthful. Its use,
temperate and discreet, is in no way
to bo condemned, which cannot bo
said of some of its substitutes.

GBANDPA'S STORY/
to Tells a Very Good One All
About Himself.
" So It seems Fred Hayes has finally jilted
annv Howo," said Grandpa West, ono
liny morning, as ho stood shaking the
raps from his great coat on our kitchen
■;ovo.
" Yes," replied I, ns I filled a pan with apes and prepared to eut tbem, " and moro
tamo to him, too. Brought her clear up to
i ongngemont, nnd thon left town with
-.other girl, and without ono word to Fan."
"Shame ["repeated good Grandpa West,
ith an indignant Hash from eyes blue and
oarasat twenty-one; "It's adlsgracoto
iy Christian church to let one of its raom-
ji's go on so. Timo was when ho wouldn't
We gono scot freo as ho has now."
"But what could havo beon done!" Iin-
lircd.
"Dono! He'd havohad tho full broadside
! church discipline ou his shoulders fifty
:ura ago. Ho ought to bo dealt with as
armon page was," concluded grandpa,
editativoly. i
"How was that!" inquired I, interested
> onco.
"I wonder if you ovor hoard that story!"
iid lio, with a curious glance understood
otter afterwards* "Soo here, it's a rainy
iy, nnd mother won't bo expecting mo
ome. Hand ovor a knife and I'll help you
itn your apples and tell that yarn at tbo
imetime."
Woll pleased with tho plan, I took anothor
in, and our fingers liew as grandpa wont
i with tho truo and authentic history of
armon Pago,
"You see," he began, "all this happened
Tty years ago, and Amltyvlllo wasn't thon
io blow-going; dull littlo placo it is now.
wns comparatively now, and was as lively
id enterprising as tho now places of tho
"est nro to-day. Thero woro a good many
d aristocratic families, though, and I tell
o they hold thoir bonds high, Tho vory
oet in' houso slips had to bo gauged ao-
rdin' to tho rank of tho buyor, and I toll
ou old Deacon Avory would novor havo got
ie scowl out of his forrard if Squiro Pago
ad happened to had a seat in front of his.
"Deueon Avory hod a daughter—a quiet,
ontlo girl, with a slight, graceful 'figure
ad a faco—well, you don't soo such faces
owndays; a clear, fine complexion, with a
olicute pink trembling up into her lips
ben sho was spoken to. Her oyes wero
reat limpid wolls, changing with overy
nought, and hor hair was a soft chestnut
rowu, waving about hor faco in its own
tay ward stylo,
"Sho was a lovely girl, b*>camoa profossor
oung, and was always to be soon In ttio ond
t tho deacon's pew ovory Sunday, rain or
liitio. She'd novor had muoh company, for
lero was a kind of dignified reserve about
sr that kopt tho fellows at a distanco. But
-hen Bho was long'bout eighteen or twenty
[armon Pago began to go with hor.
Ho was a handsome, high-spirited chap,
veiy and full of talk, and as different from
[orcy Avery as two porsons could bo. But
ley loved each other; thero's no doubt
hout that. Uanv's the timo I'vo soon hor
rand eyes sparkle and pretty chocks fluBh
t Harmon's witty speeches, till sho was
mlly brilliant. And ho, with all his proud
ilrit, always grew strangely gontlo with
orcy.
"Bo, in spite of tho rivalry that had ol*
■ays existed between tho two famillos, no
no would have disturbed tho two, had it
ot been for Virginia Wake She was a
-main of Colonel Ford's first wife and
tune thoro visltln' from tho South.
Virginia was called a handsomo girl,
:1th hor brunette face, flashing blook eyes,
lid heavy black curls sho was novor tired
f jingling around ber nook. She bad a
ood deal, too, of what you call 'stylo,' and
imityvillo folks who didn't know as much
f tho ways of tho world as thoy do now,
ere complotly fascinated with her taking
uys. Tho young follows In particular
ovnred around hor liko moths Around a
audio.
All oxcopt Harmon Pago. He hod on-
agod hiiiiHolf to Moray, and at flrat gavo
io now comor tho go-by. Tho Pages and
ordB hud a family feud of a good many
oars' standing, which kopt them apart for
no thing, and Virginia had plenty of com*
any besides Harmon.
"Uut I supposo Harmon's indifference
ilqued tho girl, and sho snubbed tho othor
loys and exerted all hor charms on Harmon.
" Sho camo in tbe fall, and along nbout
Christmas timo the neighbors began to no-
,lce that Virginia was mighty thick at the
Niges.
"The two houses wero pretty near to*
■other, and sho used to run ovor to Mother
hif-c'B on somo oxouso or other twenty
Inioa a day. Perhaps 'twa'nt strange that
iarmon began to bo flattered by it. Ho hod
ob good a turnout as any chap in tho place,
ind ho got ln tho habit of taking Virginia
loiiBidorablo.
" You seo position's every thing in moro
loses than one, and Virginia was right thero
iiimly,, whilo Mercy lived at tho top of ono
f our old-fashioned Connecticut hills, with
droadful hard road loading to it.
" Whothor sho know how mueh Harmon
vas taking tho other girl wasn't known;
omo thought not.  Sho didn't get out much,
ixcept to meotln' that winter, and sho had
enough of her father's spunk about hor not
to lot on that Bhe saw Harmon f oolin' with
Virginia Wako at tho noomn's.
" Thoro was splondid sleighing that sea-
in—tho kind wo don't havo thoso days-
and some of tho young folks wanted to havo
a general sleigh ride.  It was put oft from
thnu to time, till 'twas finally eet for ouo
Thursday night
11 It waB tho night of tho regular weekly
prayor meeting, ond uftor tho time ot tho
rido was all settled Harmon, who was tho
only profossor In tho party, tried n littlo to
havo it changed. But Virginia Wako declared, with a wicked shako of thoso jingling curls, that sho could say her prayers
just as woll in a sleigh as Bhe could cooped
up in that stupid barn of a mooting houso.
"Evory body thought of torwards that Bhe
fixed the rido for Uut night to show Morey
Avory tho power sho bad over Harmon
Pago.
" Well, tho party Btarted from Amityvillo
'long about fivo o'clock. Thoy wero all in a
big two-horse load except Virginia and Harmon.
"Sho had arranged for them to go ahead
in his cutter alone, and I'll admit thoy wore
a splondid looking couplo—he with his lino
eyes and teoth, and sho in a rich crimson
hood that set off her dark beauty to perfection.
"Our routo—for I was ono of tho party-
lay straight up tho hill towards Deacon
Avery's. Just ns wo turned into it wiio
should wo meet but tho deacon and Mercy.
"Thoy woro lato, for tho mooting was
alus appointed for early candlo lighting;
but Mercy had probably waited awhile for
Harmon, who for n year back had takon hov
to Tliuvaday nieetin' as regular as the day
cut;]*., round.
Sho sat up straight and queonly beside
hov ful hor as thoy passed, and seemed not
to hoar tho malicious Bally Virginia called
out to hev.
" Wo, in tho bnck tentn, woro near onough
to entch tho scornful glance sho throw from
those deep oyes, gray ns steel thnt night.
"As for Harmon, ho turnod whito to the
lips, and for a milo hardly answered tho
banter that Virginia kept up. Aftor Unit
ho seemed to grow perfectly rockless,
laughed atid^jokod louder than any of tho
-•est, nnd was so careless thnt ho drovo on
aatono wall; nnd wo, following, woro nil
upset in a heap together, and had hard
work to got tied up so as to make our way
homo towards morniug moro doad than
alive.
It wns n sorry day for Harmon Page.
Ha wns waited upon by n churoh committee, hoitdcd by Deacon Avory, who denounced lili) wholo conduct towards Morey
as unchristian and highly inconsistent in a
church mombor.
Ho didn't havo much to say for himsolf, und thoy churched him on tho spot.
Ho was pretty down in tho mouth, but Itop t
up somo hopo till ho saw Morey Avory.
" Ilo had rofusod to soo Virginia Wako,
and that night ho went up tho familiar hill
to Deacon Avery's stono houso.
•'Mercy horBolf camo totho door cnlm and
go)f-posso3£icd, as If nothing had happened,
nnd ..allowed him into tho sitting-room.
Thoro wns n steady light in hor gray eyes,
though, that mado Harmon tromblo, and,
without heating about tho- bush n bit, lio
camo right to tho' point, and asked if all
might bo forgiven and forgotten, nnd thoy
l)ecomo as good friends as boforo. Ho
worked himsolf into a passion, cried and
like a child, thoy said,
law, it didn't movo her an atom,
tho genuine old Avory grit, if she
wns mild mannered, and sho told him that,
as long us tho churoh bad put him out, Bho
of courso in conscience couldn't tako bim
back.
"Ho pleaded and entreated until ton
o'clock nt night, a lato hour in them days,
but it didn't mako a mito of difference. Sho
wouldn't overlook what tho church hnd considered u gross breach of faith. Ho wont
out a crushed man, and from thnt timo his
spirit soomod to leavo hlm utterly.
"And what about Virginia Wakoi" I interrupted, unconsciously cutting my linger
in my eager interest.
"Oh, after tho girl hod dono all tbe mischief possiblo, publio opinion toward hor
changed 'mnzin quick, and she loft town in
a fow days, and was nover heard from in
thoso parts again."
"And Harmon Page—wbat becamo of
Ural"
Ho nover got ovor tho shock. Ho becamo silent and melancholy, and finally had
to bo takon to tho Rotroat. He grow worso,
and tho sight of a handsomo woman with
red chcoks and black curls would always
throw him into his most violent tantrums.
Ho died in the asylum at lust."
" Now, I think that was real moan," sold
I, wrathfully, winding cotton arouud my
bleeding thumb. " If Mercy Avory hadn't
turned him off hia lifo might not havo onded
so sadly. I think sho ought to liavo taken
him baok."
'Ah, hu," said Grandpa West, quizzically,
"doyou mean thatl"
"Certainly-*1 said I, with dignity, "why
sbouldn'tH"
Ob,nothing," ho replied, "only if sho
had, Harmon Pago would have boon your
grandfather instead of me."
"My grandfather—why, thon," said I, in
somo confusion, "Morey Avery must be—"
Mercy Wost, your grandmother," said
grandpa, chuckling mo under the chin.
"Confoss now that 'all's woll thut ends
woll.'"
"I supposo so," sold I, reluctantly.—Nets

UNDERGROUND  CHAPEL.
IntcreHlfnj; Discovery ln un Old Mino ln
Northern Mexico.
An interesting discovery has beon mado
in nu old Spanish mino ou the property of
tho Corralitos Cattle and Mining Company,
on tho Casn Grnndo rivor, in Northovn
Chihuahuu, an immonso estato belonging to
Ei Paso and Now York partios. Tho mine
is callod tho Snn Pedro, und thoro is on it
an old inclino going into tho mountain nt an
anglo of forty-fivo degrees and evidently
following tho richest oro streak in a zigzng
manner. At tbo ond of this inclino a subterranean chamber was found whicli hnd
been fashioned ovidontly with groat labor
and troublo Into a regular Catholio chapel,
Tho chamber is somo thirty feot in diameter
and about twenty foot high. Seats havo
boon cut from tho solid rook running all
around tho chapel, and so has boen an altar
and a pulpit. Tho wholo was found neatly
whitewashed, and presents a peculiar nnd
weird aspect. Tho ancient chapel could bo
used at a momont's notico aa a placo of worship.
A tradition Ib found to oxist among tho
natives living in tbo neighborhood that
mnny yoars ago n regiment of Spanish cavalry was stationed at tho presidio of Janos,
somo twouty-fivo miles distant from tho
mines, and thnt tho Indians disclosed tho
oxistenco of tho mino totho priost, who was
in spiritual chargo of tho regiment. This
priest wont into partnership with tho
Colonol, und thoy employed tbo soldiers of
the command in working tho mine, which
was found exceedingly rich. After n whilo
complaints wero mado about this enforced
labor at headquarters in Spain, and tho
Colonel was called homo to answer the
chargo. Beforo leaving, ho and tho priest
divided tho silvor, and tho Colonel's sharo
won HiiOlclont to load eighty inula*, whioh
ho took with him across tho country to Vera
Cruz, whoro ho took ship for Spain.
Tho whole country adjacent to tbo Casa
Qrando and Santa Marin rivers is full of objects of interest to thearchtcologistandnaturalist. Prohistorlc ruins are found everywhere, many of them clearly traceable to
tho Aztecs, but others evidently antedate
any authentic records of history. A richor
flold of exploration and investigation can
not bo found anywhere in North America.
Dialifliis mul thu Clcrj-ymim.
Says Jntnos I'ayii in tho Independent;
"Dickons used to tell n story of mooting
with it clergyman In a railway train who
hold forth to his fellow-travelers ovor su
long upon tho novelist's privnto fallings.
'Dickons Is an atheist, air, as 1 happcu to
know; ho is also a gambler, nnd, I regret to
say, drinks,' nnd so on. 'Doar ine, how
sad. Hnvo you over aeon linn drunk!'
asked Dickens, 'Woll, not exactly drunk;
no, but certainly overtaken by liquor.'
'Havo you ever soon him sober?' 'Well,
thut is too much to say. Ob, yos, 1 have
■eon him sober.' 'Often!' 'Yes, often.*
'No, sir; only twice. You see him now for
tho first time.''"
Uow to Smoko a Cigar,
Au old Bmokorsnys that to givo somo persons good cigars is liko casting pearls boforo Bwlno, because thoy do not know how
to light thom. Tho bost "Havana" that is
"imported" from Florida or Connecticut
will ylold but a vile, unsatisfactory smoko

"binder," is of a poorer grndo whilo tho
bulk of tho cigar, tho "filler," is tho poor-
ost. Thoy are assorted with tho Intent that
thoy bo burnod togothor. Whon this is
done tho rosult Ib a delimit© and gratifying

he hopes by means of aitificiid  propagation to mako salmon ai  plentiful iu

lias inspected   tho  hatchery on   tho

Olaokomnfl otation ia the most favorably Bit anted on the coast, in regard to
collection of eggs,   but not so  well

Ho hopes to eslabl'sh   McCloud   nud
Clackamas hatchories ns central stations
for collection of eggs, and to establish '
auxiliary stations on tho head   waters
of tho various streams, whero eggs can
bo hatched and iish put in water.  Col.
McDonald intends making a  visit to
Alnsk'. next year, and hopes  to have
Boniesi reams reaorvod by the  government, especially for furnishing salmon

Tlio well  known stoamor K do K,
I of tlio Westminster aud   Brownsville
Navigation Co., loft th-s  port yesterday morning, outward bound, with a
large number of passengers on   board.
The morning, as our readers are well
aware,   was   desperately foggy and
smoky, but as  tho  steamers'  of  tin's
company have never been  known to
miss a trip, no mattor how tho weather
blows, the gallant  ciplniu, when the
hour of departure airifod stepped on
tho bridge, gave tho command   'Cast
oil" everything!'1 nnd rang to the engine
room "Full speed ahead,"   In a  few
seconds the K do K, was lost  -dg it  of
in tho fog, and that was the  last seen
of the fine vessel for  many an  hour.
Through tlio fog and smoko the vessel
ploughed her wuy, leaving tho bubbles
behind nt her usual speed of 22 knots
in hour.   Tiio morning air was  damp
mil cold, which induced the  passenger;- to gather in tbo saloon and thero
iiKiko themselves comfortable  ou llij
gorgeous seats and cushions with whieh
tlio wholo vessel is furnished.   Among
tho moat prominent of the passengers
were u well known  scientist,  one  nf
our leading legal light*-, two civil  on*
glneot'i. a  captain  of  the  Canadian
mijitia, with a squad of men,  and two
prominent Victoria marksmen. Everything won t merry as a marriage bell
till tho vessel had boen seven minutes
out, whon the chief oflicer entered tlio
•minim hastily and requested tho scientific; gentleman to join tho captain  on
thu bridge. Ho left tho cabin and in a
few minutes the word wub passed round
that the gallant K do K wns lost in tho
fog.    General  consternation was the
result, and everybody rushed  on duck
iu momentary expectation of a calain*
ity iu tho ahapo of a collision with  a
fishing bout or a  sunken  reef.   Tho
Victoria  marksmen   fastened  them*
selves to a.heap of iifu  preservers, determined   that they should float even
if everything else went to the bottom, i
The legal genlloman  took a scat  on
tho capstan and hastily wrote  out tbo

A despatch  from  Detroit,   Mich.,
says that a fow days ago Patrick Gallagher, a resident of that city, prepared to smoko his pipo after his supper.
Ho searched in his vest pocket, where
.-.^   ho usually kept tho pipo, but failing to
'jjj-..   find   it,   bo sworo frightfully.    His
,392   wife remonstrated with him for losing
hia temper ovor euch a trifling matter-,
when ho said;
"1 don't care. I hopo the Almighty
will paralyze tho man who took that
pipe," nt the time raising his hand to
ward heaven.
Hardly had the words passed his
lips when ho complained of a violent
pain in his side. A doctor wan sent
for, uud when bo arrived ho saw at a
glance that Gallagher had boon stricken
with paralysis. The unfortunate man
becamo rapidly worso, and in twelve
hours after the stroke ho was a corpso.
Tho family at first were disinclined
to connect his death with tbo awful
wish be had uttered; but nfter the fun-
oral, whilo searching tho dead man's
clothes, thoy wero horrified to find the
very pipo ho bad missed in one of the
outsido pockets of his coat, whoro ho
himself had placed it in a moment of
forgetful ness.
There is much oxcitoment in Dotroit
over Gallagher's awful death
