SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Great Show-Storms.—In an
investigation of 106 cases of rainfall ranging from nine to twelve
inches in eight hoars, Prof. E.
Loomis bus found the area of one
inch rainfall to have extended at
least 500 miles in length in ten
cases, and to have extended 700
miles in three oases; while the
entire rain-urea was frequently an
oval figure exceeding 1000 miles in
length by SOO miles in breadth.
Concerning these heavy rains the
following facts seem well established:
1. Ko great barometric depression
with steep gradients ever occurs
without considerable rain. This is
true not only for the United States,
but also for the cyclones of the
Wost Indies, the China Seo, India
and the Bay of Bengal. 2, In great
rainstorms the barometric pressure
generally diminishes, while the rainfall inereases. 3. Xhe greatest depression of the barometer generally
occurs about twelve hours after the
greatest rainfall. 4. A great fall
of rain is favorable to a rapid progress of the centre of least pressure,
while a small rainfall is generally
attended by a less rapid progress.
It is, however, plain that the rate
of progress of a low centre depends
partly upon other causes than
amount of rainfall.
The Women's Anthropological
Society of America, the first purely
scientific sooiety directed exclusively by women, was organised in
Washington in June, 1886, and has
since hold fortnightly meetings from
November to May. It now has
•') honorary, 11 corresponding, and
4G aotive members.
"Petragit" is a new German
explosive from molasses. It is said
to be three times as powerful as
nitro-glycerine.
M. Cornu believes that the light
of shooting stars cannot be due to
combustion or heat, as supposed,
hut is a phenomenon of static electricity developed by simple friction.
A Tally-Stick op History.—
The covered reservoirs of Carthage,
now being restored by an engineer
ing company of Tunis, are a remarka
He record of the ebb and flow of
civilisation in one historically
ancient spot. These great works
date back fully 2000 years, and
have been in use several. times at
widely separate periods. They, were
in full working order in the time of
Hannibal, were again repaired undor
tho emperor Hadrian, and until the
present time have been entirely
neglected since the occupation by
the Arabs in 697 A. D. These reservoirs cover a space 420 by 89J feet
and are divided into eighteen compartments.
A Novel Device.—An "electrio
valve," by means of which tho current can be sent in one direction but
not in the other, has been described
by a French electrician, M. Ney-
reneuf. With a voltameter constructed of two aluminium electrodes
dilute acid as electrolyte, and an
alternating current, pure hydrogen
was evolved at both electrodes; but
with one electrode of aluminium
and ono of mercury, using distilled
water as electrolyte, the current was
found to pass in one direction only,
The theory thst tetanus is derived
from the horse—as charbon, rabies
and glanders are communicated from
the lower animals to man—was first
advanced in 1885 by Prof. Vernouil,
who believes he has now fully substantiated this view. The malady
appears to be due to a bacillus,
which may come from the animal
direct, pr may lie dormant in pastures, stables, harnesses or carriages,
giving rise to the locked-jaw and
other symptoms on falling upon a
wound or other surface favorable for
development.
Col. Mujendie concludes that one
volume of liquid benzine will render
10,000 volumes of air inflammable
or 5000 violently explosive. Neither
a glowing coal, sparks from flint and
steel or a flameless fusee, however,
will ignite the most explosive mix
ture, actual flame or white heftt
being necessary.
. The Best Disinfectants.—After
giving a. long list of substances used,
Prof. Dujardan-Beaumetz declares
that tho one disinfectant above all
is moist heat when it reaches 230 ?
to 240 ° Farhenheit; but, as this
temperature cannot always be applied, liquid and gaseous disinfectants are also necessary. At the
head of the flrst is placed currosive
sublimate, which is without an equal;
then, sulphate of copper. Among
tho gaseous disinfectants are preferred sulphurous acid and chlorine.
In the juices of the empty
stomach Mons. J. E. Abolous has
found nine new forms of microbes
addition to seven previously
known. These microbes must play
an important part in digestion, but
their principal effect upon the food
seems to be after it has passed from
the stomach into the intestinal traot

rtJMHpil SAMOAN   SEWS.
San Francisco, April 20.—The following ib learned of tjte lituation at
Apia, Samoa, by tl^r arrival of the
steamer Umatilla thia morning:—The
Germans are iu one part of the town
aud the Americans in the other, but
still a patrol of German sailors has
constantly to keep guard over the
German quarters, as the  men  under
fing Mataafa, who now number nine
ousand all under arms, aro very bitter against them, and with the slight*
eBt provocation will exterminate them
all.
W. E. Bowio, one of the VancUHa's
survivors, was asked if he saw anything of Captain Schoonmaker. He
replied as follows: "Yes, I saw him
up to the moment of his death. The
captain was always on deck, but did
not seem to be as collected as Lieut.
Oarlin, who was Riving all tbe orders.
While standing there I saw a piece of
a spar fall and strike the captain, and
heard Lieut. Oarlin advise him to take
to the rigging. 'Oh, no', he replied\
'my place is on deck', and ho remained thore. In a short time I saw him
struck again by another piece of broken spar which felled him just as a big
swell washed over the ship, and he
went over into tho water. I watched
and saw him rise about sixty feet away
uud saw that he was too stunned to
make any effort to swim. I heard his
voice as he was borne out to sea and
while I am not sure I thought I distinguished the words 'Good bye' and
he disappeared from my sight."

AFTER THE LAND.
Arkansas City, Kansas, April 18.
—Four hundred and thirty-seven
families arrived here yesterday iu
wagons, and at least one thousand persons by the railroads. The trains
from the south brought quite a number of Pawnee and Atoe Indians from
the reservation south of this city. It

DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, April 18.*-The House was
engaged all day discussing the Atlantic
and Pacific Hteamahip subsidies. Hon.
Mr. Foster said the arrangement with
the Andersons for a twenty-knot Atlantic service was about completed.
The arrangements for tbe Japan service are known, hut nothing definite
about the Australian, Canada having
been uked to take the initiative. Mr.
Davis reid a letter from Victoria, urg
ing that the Japan steamships be compelled to call there. Hon. Mr. Foatei
■aid the Dominion Government had
not the power to make this condition,
the final arrangements resting with the
Britiih Government. Col. Prior said
he had received many letten urging
that Victoria be made a port of call.
The boardt of trade had pressed the
matter. Tbe steamen passed within
a short distance of the port, and now
the mails had to be taken to Vaucouver
and brought back again. Viotoria wai
willing to put her hand in her pocket
and construct suitable wharves to land
Csengersand mails. He had done
_ beit to get the government to make
thia a condition before paying the subsidy, but so far he had not had much
success. Tho service will be likely to

not onded when the house adjourned.
A FISHY YARN.
Chicago, April 10.—A Washington
special says ; "A veiy pretty little
story which promises to develop into
an interesting trial comes to Washington from Alaska It is tu the effect
that about five yean ago a man, named
McPherson, sailed from San Francisco
and eventually landed on one of the
Aleutian Islands off the coast of Alaska.
Mr. MoPhenon's entire outfit consisted of a luit of clothes and an American flag, together with a paper purporting to have been signed by Attor-
ney.General Garland appointing him
United States Commissioner. Ai soou
as ho landed on the Island he raised
the American flag with a great deal of
ceremony, took command of six hundred natives and compelled them to
address him as King McPherson. Each
season he exacted heavy tributes.
Things went along very smoothly
until a few months ago when the report states he had some difficulty with
three of his subjects, and, fearing that
there might be a mutiny, he determined to disposeof all those whodid not bow
before his authority. He arrested the
three offenden tried them by court-martial and sentenced them to be hanged.
He carried out the sentenco somehow
or other. A report of Mcpherson's
rule reached the treasury department
and a special agent was sent to hia
islands to investigate the matter. This
agent recently reported the facts to
Secretary Windom substantially aa
thoy are given above. Now it il laid
that a revenue cutter will be sent to
the island for the purpose of arresting
McPherson. It is the intention of the
authoritiea to bring him to San Francisco and try him for mnrder."

the Denmark's passengers.
London, April 20. -The steamship
Minnesota hu arrived at the mouth of
the Thames from Baltimore and reports she uw on the 17th inst a life
boat belonging to the Denmark, in lat.
50°, 18', long. 37°, 50* west The boat
bad tho name --Denmark, Copenhagen" on her stern. The boat wu
half full of water and looked as though
the occupants had been rescued, (mo
or two oan, some rope and tarpaulin
lay in the bottom of the boat. Three
rowlocks were in position and the
painter was coiled up on the head
pieces. Sugar boxes were seen in the
boat.
LATER.
Oapt. Blacklin, of the i. b. Minnesota, says he pioked up the .boat and
examined it closely. There wu an
oar in the boat and three rowlocks
were in position. There was every
appearance that the peoplo tn tho boat
had been rescued, and that they bad
abandoned it lustily. The 4th of April
wmj nsi four days before the City of
Chester fell in with the abandoned
Denmark, and this would go to show
that the abandonment wu a huty
one, or one which would usually follow a collision and panio. A mystery
appears to be in tbe fact that the officers left the vessel when she wu in a
condition to remain afloat for many
days. Shipping men express much
surprise that the officers did not remain on board until it became absolutely necessary to leave the vessel. They
uk the pertinent question: Did a
panic occur and did the passengers
compel the officen and crew by threats
of violence to launch the boats-and
rafts? If so, were not some lives lost
in the excitement, and, if not, where
are the passengen? If a collision took
place, where is the vessel tbat did the
damage, snd did she uve sll hands?
EXCEEDED  AUTHORITY.
Berlin, April 18.—A white book
regarding the Samoan question hu
been published under date of April
16, by Prince Bismarck and Herr
Stuebel, the present German consul
at Samoa. Herr Knappe, the late
German consul at Samoa, is censured
for his conduct throughout all troubles
at the islands. The white book dwells
upon the fact tbat Herr Knsppe's
actions were entirely unauthorized
and without necessity. It states that
he took measures oo December 17th
last which resulted in deplorable
deathi and effected an undesirable
change in the position of the planters
and which jeopardised tho puce between Germany and America, while
Suiescenoe would have preserved a
tuation that at leut would have been
tolerable. Princo Bismarck concludes
the report by declaring that Germany
hss nothing to do with the internal ,
attain at Samoa. German mission in
Samoa is restricted to protecting German citizens and enabling them to
develop their commercial interests.

Tbp'J/ew-U opposing tho proposed expenditure of §20,000 by
the Vancouver corporation for the
establishment of a city market, the
principal reason being that tho North
Arm bridges havo not yot been
built, and, consequently, according
to the yews, as it is "impossible for
the farmers to reach the city und
use a market, it would certainly
seem to be, injudicious to borrow
money to erect a building for which
there can be no use." The News
points out that, according to an
agreement entered into at tbe close
of the year 1887, between tbe city
of Vancouver, the O.P.R.Oo,, and
the municipality of Richmond, the
city has constructed its bridge across
False Oreek, at a cost of $22,000,
the railway company has built its
section of wagon road, as agreed,
but Richmond municipality has failed to do its part in having the north
arms of the Fraser bridged. Atten
tion is also called to a resolution,
paused at the lust meeting of the
Vancouver council, charging the
Richmond municipality with a
breach of public faith on its
part unless it at once provides
the means to perform its part
of the agreement, Tlio News, wo
. think, undor the circumstance,
is rather severe, to the point of
unreasonableness, upon the Richmond municipality, as that body is
not fairly chargeable with delaying
the construction of the bridges,
either wilfully or negligently. The
delay has rather been the result of
circumstances which the municipality could not have been expected
to control. As to what tho municipality is bound to do in the future
in the bridge matter is another question.
Erastus Wiman is an indefatigable and enthusiastic worker in
behalf of his favorite hobby, commercial union, with n strong "assimilation" aspect. He does a great
deal of specifying and-writing on
the subject—most of it, however,
from the American standpoint.
Wiman's article entitled "The
O rt'Atcr UaU of tlio OontiiiHnt," published in the North American Jieview
recently, and also in pamphlet form,
while written for the people of the
United States, primarily, to whet
their desires for "assimilating" the
Canadian i:plum," ^Utalj'&HSfflrh valuable mtiti-c-r for the consideration of
the patriotic Canadian—much well
fitted to stimulate Canadian patriotism. The writer starts out with an
expression of surprise that in this
j.'irk-'i of tire vi*-:; acquirement of
grnrt-raJ iaJwmiita'm bo little is known
t£ tjbe gt&ur iaZf rf the continent
-.■: y_.nh -Ajpseks, isduded within
Mit iiritiii pusses-dons, and compares Canada's 3,470,392 square
miles with the total area of the
United States (excluding Alaska) of
3,036,000.. Canada is shown further, by way of conveying some conception of its magnitude, to comprise very nearly forty per oent. of
the entire British empire, and to
contain, with its great lakes and
rivers ol enormous size and length,
more than, one-half of the fresh
water of the entire globe. "Such
broad generalities ns these," observes
Erastus Wiman, "may well excite-
the attention of the people of tho
United States, who, in view of the
magnificent, proportions of their own
cquntry, have been unconsciously
led to Mievu that it comprises all
that is worth having on the continent." Tlio impression, born of
ignorance, that the Dominion is a
region of frost and snow, etc, is conclusively shown   to  be  stupid and
* false, So far •■•• tho climate of Con-.
nda is oonueruuil, tho writer says, it
should nover lie forgotten that,
within the parallels of latitude
which include the greater portions
of the Dominion, the development
in the United States has been tbo
most marked. Illustrative of this
development, tbe following statement is quoted with respect to the
commerce of tho great lakes: That
the tonnage aud value of products
which passed through the Sauit Hie,
Marie Canal, compressed within
seven months of ttie season of navigation of 1888, equalled that which
passed through the Suez oanal in the
ontiro year. In connection with
this statement the reader is asked to
recall tho. fact that tho water communication of the lakes is competed
with by the most perfectly equipped
railway systems of the age, while
the' commerce of the Sues is practically without a competitor. The
above facts, the writer declares, are
a testimony to. the; advantages of a
not-horn climate that is impossible
to ignore. Wiman concludes this
paragraph as follows:   "Theplace
* that she (Ounada) should occupy, as
the greater and northern half of the
con^iuerit van, be no .longer denied to
^pr- A'-.ptaRV «».tlW«Fv will show
'G»n*&to--bBvft iCQ«fl|ry having few
equals in extent, none in riches of
nwouroe, iti aoceuibilitjr, easo of
interior communication, and, notwithstanding the smije that lightens up tho face, of the reader,,
none, superior to her,, lft the, ad-
vantag* of cUraate."  The wheat-j
producing area is shown to have
had a steady movement northward,
and within tbe Canadian territories,
it is stated,, are wheat areas possessing all the advantages of the regions
to the sooth, but in richness,  fertility and extent infinitely greater.
The climatic advantages of the northernmost  portions of  Canada, over
even latitudes much farther south, is
pointed out to be due to tbe often
forgotten circumstance that climate
is much more the result of* altitude
than it is of latitude.   By way of
comparison, Europe is  shown, according to Humboldt, to have a mean
elevation of 671 feet, North America   a mean of 748 feet, while the
Canadian portion of North America
has an  altitude of only 300 feet.
This  low altitude, iu  its influence
upon the climate, is second only to
the effect of  the marino currents,
which   are  singularly favorable to
Canada,   A peculiar ud vantage possessed by the wheat growing areas
of the Canadian Northwest is thus
described : "Ages of long winters,
continuous  and  often severe cold,
have   produced  a frost line in the
earth   far down below the surface,
which being thawed out during the
summer months is full of force. This
vast area of  ice, fur  enough below
the surface to permit the growth of
plants, holds in suspense and readiness for tho land abovo the needed
element  of moisture, constant and
assured,   which   in   other  regions
comes only in the rains and dews
that  fall from the sky."   Another
advantage   in   Canada's  northern
wheat  fields  is   discerned in the
greater length of the days ih those
latitudes, which gives on an average two hours per day more of sunshine during the period of the growth
of wheat than is vouchsafed in nny
other  locality where wheat can be
produced, which is an inestimable
advantage, not only helping rapidly
forward  the  ripening process, but
the heat is continuously sufficient to
cause un exudation of tho moisture
from tho ice in the ground beneath.
It   so   happens also, continues tho
writer, that tho soil which enjoys
these  advantages of  moisture beneath, and long, forceful rays from
above, is   particularly rich  and inexhaustible.   But it must not be inferred, it is added, that the climate
of Canada is represented by the regions   to the extreme north which
have just  been referred to.   Tho
Dominion, from its vast extent, as
has   been  truly said, "possesses all
the  climates of  Europe, from tbe
Mediterranean to the Arctic Ocean,
as might be expected, seeing that it
extends from the latitude of Rome,
in Italy, to that of the North Cape,
in Norway, and in of almost equal
urea."   The mild climate of British
Columbia is referred to, and the immense sea coast of this province, of
over  three thousand miles, us well
as the sea coast of  the entire Dominion, which is given, exclusive of
inland  seas, as over five thousand
five hundred miles, washed by waters
abounding  in  the   most   valuable
fishes of all kinds.   With regard to
the .Dominion  as a whole, Malto
Brun is quoted as saying: "Everything  is in proper keeping for the
development of the combined physical  and mental energies of  man.
There  are to be found at once the
hardihood of  character which conquers difficulties, tho climate which
stimulates exertion, and the natural
advantages which reward enterprise.
Nature has marked out this country
for exalted destinies." And Erastus
Wiman's best aspirntion for '-The
Greater Half of  tbe Continent" is
that  it  may be  assimilated—absorbed—by the lesser half!

MONEY IN HUMAN HAIR.
HrnUliy Employment Given lo G'lrla-

"Ono of tlio few markets for tv
woman's work which te not overcrowded an;l at wbiah compclout and
fairly inteLiscnt gills con earn good
wageBfromlhe flrBt day tlioy enter upon
the profession U that which incladcs the
working, cutting and general arrangement of ths hnmau hair," said
one of the leading tonsorial artists to n
reporter.
"At present the hair tvutZa, like
other businesses, is vory dull. Wearing ehort hair bnd a great deal to do
with the depression, but now it Ib
going ont of fashion, thank goodoessl
It used to tfilta six or ciRlit people cutting hair all da j to earn 610.
"The average wages for femalo
hair-dressers is 88 a week, rising (o
818 and sinking to £5. A girl
who understands tho whole business
thoroughly in all its branches can com*
maud 818 any whoro. Ono large artist
in this city used to employ HO girls,
and paid $700 weekly in wages,"
*• Where do the proflts of tho profession lie?"  -
"In the falso hair department. We
sell on the average threo wigs a day
even during dull times. Tho ladies
who have had thoir hair cut and aro
tired of it, buy, wigs and iwitches to
wear in tho street. Those whoso hair
is poor, or who suffer from baldness
wear tbem all the thne.
" Girls who confine their attention to
Imir-working alone, earn from 88 to
810 A week. It is an art that needs
some skill and no small amount of
patience snd perseverance to succeed
with.   -
" The hair with which the wigs are
made is collected by special drummers
in Germany nnd Franco. Kngiaod and
Belgium aro but.poor markets for hair,
not because of its scarcity, for both
English and Belgian women have tbe
finest heads of linir in the world, but
because they will uot sell it,
" When collected it is put through a
cleaning process severe enough to fetch
the dirt out of an elephant's hide, and
then dyed aoVoral times over. The
best hair-dressers never buy hair from
' the bead or from private hands."
"What is tlio rarest kind of
hair?"      '
i "Perfectly whito hair; it will com*
mand almost any price, Natural, curling hair isai3o of considerable valuo.
A good wig of white hair costs S-10.
The material of which these wigs are
made is clipped from the festive goat,
and seldom from tho human head. A
peculiarly soft, silky kind of snow-
white hair originates on the Angora
rabbit. ■*•***•■
- "A perfectly whito and abundant
wig of white human hair would cost
at least -J-J,000, which prioe few ladies
would bu willing to pay.
- •* Dead hair—that is hair cut from
thehead after drmth—is never used by
any tonBorial artist worthy of tho name.
Indeed, it cannot bo used to any advantage, as it will neither curl, twist,
nor manipulate.
"Hair out from a living head is not
dead, afact which can easily bo proved
by taking hair and stretching it out
to its utmost capacity. It will then
contract quietly to ita former position."

an "Arrant humbug.
The Idea That Ago lends flrnat Vuloe to
Winua Without Foundutton.
Now, what sro tho real facts about old
wines i asks tho Mirror. Aftor fermentation, which is a process of decay, wine will
deteriorate unless provonUva measures
are taken, such as keeping tho wino in a
i cool or even temperature* tho addition of
alcohol, boiling (tho vinum oottum of tho
Romans and tho vino ootto of modem Italians), and tho completo exclusion of tbo ordinary atmosphoro by good corks, by sealing-wax or by oil. The most common
method for preserving wino iu rood-ru
times Is by adding niconoi and 'b/rjoruiiig
and sealing. Tho alcohol in wines prepared
for England is often ln such proportions
that tbo wine ceases tobe any thing liko the
juice of the grape, and too ofton is as
strong as a glass of brandy and wator. But
with all these precautions thero is a timo
whan even tho best of wines lose tholr
character.
When I flrst went to reside In Portugal a
present was mado mo of a fow bottles of
port wino, of tho famous vintage of 1830,
Port wine, having naturally more sugar,
has consequently moro alcohol, and thus
more of resistance to decay and deterioration. Tbla port, whon I drank it, was in its
fiftieth yoar, and it had becomo tbo color of
sauterno, and was moro liko a liqueur, and
whiter than the port of the vinugo of 1S17.
About the samo timo I also tasted somo port
wino that was nearly seventy yeara old. It
was nearly white, and seemed to havo no
great wine character. In 1871 Mr, Itabollo,
Uio Brazilian Consul at Oporto, made mo a
present of sever*! bottles of port wino of
tho vintage of 1710, Mr. Rabello had board
oftho bre-hkug up of an old Portuguese
family where, from father to son, a certain
number of bottles of famous vintages had
boen banded down. I sont several of theso
aged wines to the late William Cullcn Bryant, remarking that tho bottlo of 1703 was,
according to tho oncyclopmdin, ot bis own
ago; but tho poet, in acknowledging tho reception of tho wino, stated thut it was bis
senior, and that ho should look up to It with
reverence.
Whon I mine to open my bottlo of 1703,1
found it (which onco had tbo dark rod ot
port) about tho color of water, and tho most
insipid stuff. Up to tho beginning of this
century it was not tho custom in any part
of Europe to put a lot of fiery alcohol into
any kind of wine, and wbon tboy did add
spirit to port wino it was a littlo of that
whleh hud been distilled from port This
1703 wino bad probably boen thus treated,
but with ull iho sealing wax and a ouce
good cork, tho boverago was as unvlnous
and tiir-ielcBs as it it had beon water dipped
up from a pond and bottled. Therefore I
doubt if tho Bavarian wines so sedulously
advertised in England as thoso of 1M0,
1010 and 1781 have any vlrtuo in thom, even
if thoy bo gonulno wines of thoso dates.
Thoy are roally insipid stuff not worth a
penny a gallon.
THB MYBTERY OF THE OOMB.
Use of This Aid to Penonal Appearance
ln Religions Service*
It would bo curious to know What mystic meaning our forefathers attached to
sosimpli* aunct as that of combing the
hnlr. Yet ws learn from old ohuroh history that the hair ot the priest or Bishop
wns thus combed several times during
divine servico by ono ot the Interior
clergy.
The comb is mentioned as one of tho essentials for use during a high mass when
sung by a Bishop, and both in English
aud foreign cathedrals they were reckoned among the costly possessions of the
ohurch. Some wero made of Ivory, some
were carved, others gemmed with precious t* tonus.
Among the combs specially known to
" history aro thoBO of St. Noot, St. Duustan,
and Mnlnchlas. That of St. Thomas the
Martyr ot Canterbury Is still to be seen
In tho Church ot St. Sepulchre, at.Thet*
ford, nnd that of St. Cuthbert at Durham
Cathedral.
From sundry references in old legends
to thn uso of the oomh In divination, ami
from -its appearance iu combination with
pag-iti i emblems on rudely sculptured
stones In various parts of Scotland, it
seems probable that this was one of the
objects of pagan veneration whioh early
Christian teachers deemed It prudent to
adopt, Investing It with some new eJgoifl*

ThcSea Serpent.
Capt. Hail, who arrived in Nnnaimo
on Tuesday evening from San Juan
island in a canoe, reports to the Courier having soon tho only eca serpent on
the Pacific coast. Monday afternoon
about 3 o'clock, the sen being smooth,
just a light breeze blowing, and the
captain snugly ottsconsed in the utern
of the canoo, lazily enjoying a pipo,
and visions of sea serpents and other
monsters of the salty deep being far
distant from his mind, ho was startled
by the foaming of the wator just in
front of his little vessel. Hastily looking U[) he saw not twenty feot distant
the tail of what he bolieved to be a
veritable sen serpent lushing the water
to a foam. He did not seo tho head
cf tho monster, it boing submerged in
the ocean. Tho animal, or whatever
it might be called, after disporting itself alongside nnd in front of the
canue, suddenly sank out of Bight und
was no more seen. Tbe captain states
that the caudal appendage of the serpent was fully twenty-live feet long
and glistened in the sun like burnished armor.

Between Brownsville and the hatchery
three miles of tbe road-bed is finished
and ready fur rails. Alargeforceofmen

14 miles from Brownsville, gangs of
men nro at work all along the lino, a
large portion of whioh will be ready
tor the rails in a few week.s Tho cutting away of the beaver dams, mentioned in The Columbian, two weeks ago,
has had a bettor effect than was anticipated. The water on tho flats has
been reduced by 5 feet and much laud,
whioh hss hitherto been uBeleso, can
now be oasily cultivated Yesterday
Mr. James Leamy the contractor for

The Draw tu be If ) Feel!
A meeting of the boird of trado was
held on Thursday to consider further
the proposal of Mr. Abbott to mnke
the draw in the Mission bridgo 72 ft,
After receiving the opinions of' river
captains and pilots the board reaffirmed
its previous resolution that the draw
ahould beat least 100 feet, and a
resolution to this effect was forwarded
to Mr. Abbott nnd to the minister of
marine. This afternoon the board roceived a telegram from Ottawa staling
that the C. P. R. had consented tu
make the draw 100 feet, and hnd given
tho Dominion government a guarantee
to that effect. This announcement
will be received with very great satisfaction by the people of this city and
district, as it is the opinion of nil practical men that a draw of only 60 feet
would seriously menace the navigation
of thu river. The board of trade took
tho initiatory in protesting against
the insufficiency of tho proposed draw
ni soon us its attention had been called
to tho circumstances, nnd it is a matter
for congratulation that a satisfactory
adjustment has been reached without
an appeal to the courts. The Columbian was the first to call tho public
attention to tho sine of the proposed
draw, and it wns the reiult of our article that protests from the board of
trade and council followed.        '.
A Croat Cricket Match.
The most interesting cricket match
that has been played in British Columbia in somo years came oft* yesterday at Hastings. It was a single
wicket mateh and tho contestants were
the Laird of Hastings and the governor of one of our provincial institutions.
Tha challenge came from the Laird,
who dared the Govornor to play for
refreshments for a crowd of some 70
or 80 people. The challenge was nccepted promptly and the plnyeia threw
off their coats and crossed ovor to the
field, followed by the entire populace
of Hastings. The Laird won the toss
and decided to bat first, thereby hoping to knock the leather about so lively as to wind his somewhat heavy opponent and weaken his hitting powers
when the innings changed. The Governor grasped the ball firmly, while
the Laird, after carefully measuring
his distance, nnd being properly coached to thejatumps, stood waiting the
first shot. A slight pause followed,
during whieh "there was silence deep
as death, and the boldest held hia
breath," and thon tho Governor's arm
was seen to make a fierce slash through
the air, which was followed by the
Laird striking frantically into space
and the centre stump turning three
Bomersaults in the diroetion of Westminster. Great was the tumult that
followed this brilliant shot, and the
Governors arm bo heartily wrung by
admiring friends that the referee considerately allowed him a few minutes
for recuperation before ho went in to
bat. When time was called, tho Laird
faced tho bat with a look of determination on his eountennroe, while his
opponent loosed smiling nnd cheerful.
The leather shot suddenly towards tho
wioket and was carefully caught on the
Governor's bat and urged into a neighboring thicket, where it remained
until the Governor "run it out" by
speoial request from the delighted
spectators. Scon, Governor 8, Laird
0. The ooiiditious of tho match wero
faithfully carried out, and a return
gamo was arranged for Thanksgiving
day.

Presentation.
When it was announced by tho
Venerable Archdeacon Woods that ho'
had decided to retire from tho rectorship of Holy Trinity church, thu leading lady members of tho congregation
niet together nnd determined to show
in some tangible manner the appreciation iu which th^ttfpndoacon's pastorate of over 20 years' duration was
held. Tho same kindly feelings of
the whole congregation towards Mrs.
Woods, of whom so little, unfortunately, has been seen of late, owing to ill-
health, suggested the advisibility of
making the presentation a double one*
and this wns finally deoidod' op.
A collecting committee was appointed, and the success it met with
speaks for itself in the handsome presentation made this afternoon. The
committee appointed to make the presentation wub composed by Mrs. J. A.
R. Homer, Mra. J. W. Harvey, Mrs,
Goo, Turner and Mrs. A. W. Herring,
who, by the way, weru tho most active
workers in bringirg this most pleasing
event to a .successful issue. To-day
having been considered a most
appropriate one, the gift to take
the form of an Easter presqntr, tho
above-mentioned Indies called at the
Rectory this afternoon, and were shortly followed by a dray on which was
loaded a very handsome set of drawing
room furniture, threo sots of luce and
tapeBtrie curtains and a large easy
chnir, tho latter for the special use of
Venerable Archdeacon. Before the
Archdeacon could very well grasp the
situation, the presentation was made
accompanied by the following address:
To Venerable Archdeacon and Mrs.
Woods;
The appended list of your congregation
beg your acceptance of tho Easter present herewith sent, and foel it only a very
slight recognition of the years of faithful
service spent among us; a servico, the
lirst value of whioh is only known to The
Master, whom wo all profess to servo.
Wo are very sorry that increasing years
and their attending infirmities have compelled yon to resign your rectorship,
from a conscientious fear of inability to
fulfil the ever*iucreasing neods of Holy
Trinity Church; and it is with great regret we bid you farewell.
We shall remember with speoial love
aud gratitude tho gentle intercourse
among ub of Mrs. Woods, which from
her continued ill-health 1ms been of
necessity, very limited for the last few
years,
We hope that for many years to come
you will both be our near and valued
neighbors, and that, ceasing to be your
congregation, our friendship will be as
firm and sincero ns ever.
For tho nature of our offering we would
say, that somo of us preferred plate,
which would have been engraved and
transmitted to children and grandchildren,
but tho majority thought tnat something
for your own use and comfort would
have more of common sense to recommend
it.
Hoping you and Mrs, Woods will
accept our offering iu the spirit of love
with whioh it is given we beg to remain
Yours in Loving Respect.
Here follows a list of tho subscribers
to the gifts.
So completely taken by surprise,
and so overcome by. emotion waa tho
venerable Archdeacon, that it was with
difficulty he found voice to repond to
the cordial address. On behalf of
himself and Mrs. Woods ho returned
most sincero thanks, and expressed
his deep regret that increasing years
made it necessary thut he should resign the reotorshi p of Holy Trinity,
Joseph Brisbois, of St. Emit ache,
Que., jumped into a well years ago and
was rescued. Twelve months later ho
he cut his throat with a razor but recovered. Thursday he hung himself
in a bam, but is not dead yet.
