SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Ice crumbles undor saw and
chisel, uut is said to be more capable than wood of being smoothed
and shaped by the plane.
Minute doses of corrosive sublimate—one of the most powerful
poisons known—have been given for
cholera, with remarkable success, by
a French doctor in Tonquin.
No less than forty-nine con.
grosses for the consideration of important subjects—largely scientific
—havo been authorised by a committee of the Paris Exhibition.
Prof. Haddon, of Dublin, declares
that a species of fish (Pcriophtlta.
mut) of Torres Straits breathes
largely through its tail-fin. Though
living much out of water, it was
not affected byprolonged submersion,
but soon died when its tail had been
varnished.
The Society for the Promotion of
Industry, ia Germany, has offered
21,000 marks in prizes for solutions
of various problems. The largest
prize—600 marks and a silver medal
—is to be given for the best essay
on the extent to whioh the chemical
composition of steel is n standard
for the usefulness  of edgod  tools.
Possible Height op Briok
Walls.—In a number of tests applied to masonry, according to
Prof. Baker of Illinois University,
piers of ordinary brick and common
lime mortar stood a pressure of a
little over 1500 pounds per squaro
inch, whioh is equal to the weight
of a column of brick 2000 feet high,
with ordinary Portland cement
mortar the strength was somewhat
more than 2500 pounds per square
inch, or tbe weight of a column of
brick masonry 3600 feet high.
A Primitive Industry. — In
Colombia the American aloe—known
there as "figve"—is of groat importance on account of its fibre, which
is used for sandals, sacks, ropes,
girths, pack saddles, etc. These
manufacturers are among the most
important of the country,- the yearly
value being variously estimated at
from $10,000,000 to $30,000,000.
No part of the plant except the fibre
is used, and this is now extracted by
so slow and laborious a processs that
a skilled laborer oan produce only
about ten pounds of fibre daily.
Poisoned Air,—Last year's researches of Messrs. Brown-Sequard
mid d' Arsonval, showing that a
poisonous substance is expelled from
the lungs with the breath, have
been confirmed by further investigations. Small quantities of the
substance quickly cause the death of
rabbits. The experimenters have
proven that this is the poison that
produces the harmful effects of
breathing in a confined spaoe, and
thut air containing a large proportion of tho usually criminated carbonic acid may be breathed with no
serious result.
Flour-Making: bv Wind-Power,
—- A recent writer states that in
many parts of the United States
unprovided with water-power it
would be not only possible but
profitable to use wind-power for
milling. In European countries
wind-driven flour mills, even of considerable extent, aro no uncommon
sight; and one firm is said to have
a mill operated by steam and another
operated by wind, and to have found
the latter the more successful financially. To get the bost results, this
author asserts that the mill should
have a capacity of 150 to 200 barrels,
and would need a wind wheel at
least 85 or 90 feet in diameter,
which should not approach nearer
than 15 feet to the ground.
Use of Salt.—The United
Kingdom, according to Mr. P. L.
Simmonds, produces 2,200,000 tons
of salt annually, tho other countries
of Europe about 3,000,000, North
America, rather over 1,000,000,
Asia and Africa about another 1,-
000,000, making a total of 7,200,-
000 tons. Salt is vory extensively
used in the arts, and it is remarkable as being the only mineral voluntarily oaten by man, Its use with
food is universal with all nations,
the consumption per head in different
countries being stated as follows:
United States, 50 pounds; England,
40; France, 30; Italy, 20; Russia,
18; lielguim, 16}; Austria, 16;
Prussia, 14; Madras, 13; Bengal, 13;
Spain, 12; Bombay, 20J; Switzerland, 8 J.
TiiElIiiLM Wind.—During recent
yeara some scientific attention has
been given to the singular meteorological phenomenon known as the
Helm wind, which ocours only on
the Cross Fell rango of mountains,
in England. This range is 2900
feet high, ond drops off abruptly to
the west from 1000 to 1500 foet in
a mile add a half. With an easterly wind, a cloud forms.on the summit of the range, whilo parallel with
it at a distance of two or threo
milos a slender roll of dark cloud—
called tho Helm bar—appears in
mid-air. A cold wind blows down
the sides of the Fell until nearly
under the bar, when it suddenly
ceases. The Helm wind proves to
be less rare than has been supposed,
the bar having been observed 41
times in 1885, 63 in 1886, and 19
in 1887.
It was stated yesterday at Montreal
that the general, or one of the highest
dignitaries in the Jesuit order, would
oome .cross to give evidence on the
Jesuits' oath in the Mail libel suit.

ANOTHER PRIZE  FIGHT.
Providence, Mar. 30.—Jack Ash-
ton and Joe Lannon fought at Burrill-
villc, about 25 miles from here, early
this morning. For 15 rounds, the fighting was very light and honors even.
The articles called for but 19 rounds,
but though a misunderstanding another was called by referee Frank Moran
of Bridgeport, Conn. In opening
Aahton forced tho work and catching
Lannon under witn the left tumbled
him to the floor, the tint knock down
of the battle. Joe came to his feot instantly had barely squared away before Ashton swung his right and catching Lannon this time on the jaw sont
him down again; he got up in a dazed
condition. Ashton went for him forcing him by a succession of blows to
tbe ropes where lie pinioned him and
peppered at his wind nnd head for several seconds, Lannon collapsing whero
ho stood aud falling full length on the
door. Ashton retired to his cornor
and the ten seconds allowed by rulo

the BUI respectidg the re-conveyance
of certain lands to the Province of
British Columbia. He explained that
by this Act it was proposed to mako a
recover]* to the Province of British
Oolumbia of 45,000 acres of land which
owing to a misunderstanding of the
railway grant belonged to that Pro*
vince. Theae lands were not, as supposed, within the railway belt and
they had been taken over by the Dominion on that understanding.
Hon. Charles H. Tupper introduced
a bill to amend the Steamboat Inspection Act. He explained chat under thu
Act as it was at present, there is a formula for testing boilers, This prevented engines built in England, though
up to the standard of the British Board
of Trade, from being passed by the
steamboat inspectors under this aet.
The object of this bill was to give the
Governor-General in Council puwer to
amend the Act from time to time so as
to render such engines in steamships
admissable for inspection.
Gladstone's eulogy.
London, March 29.—In the houso
of commons this evening Mr. Gladstone delivered an oration ou the life
and services of the late Mr. John
Bright. Mr. Bright's life, ho said,
had been happy in a remarkable degree, even to the moment of his departure. He had lived to see the
triumph of almost every great cause to
whioh he had especially devoted his
heart and mind. He had established
a special claim to the admiration of
those who had otherwise differed with
him by his concurrences with them
upon the prominent questions of the
hour. Though he had separated himself from the great bulk of the liberals
on the Irish question, there had never
been a word of disparagement on
either side. Mr. Bright's views with
regard to tho Crimean war he, Mr.
Gladstone, had been unable to agree
with, but he had never felt profoundly
what must have been the moral elevation of those who had all their lives
been nurtured in the temple of popular
approval, yet who cuuld at a moment's
notice consent to part with the whole
of that favor they enjoyed and which,
their opponents might think, was the
very breath of their nostrils. During
the crisis of 1868 when the fate of the
Irish ohuroh hung in the balance, Mr.
Gladstone said it waa a difficult task for
him to induce Mr. Bright to enter the
ministry, so little did office attract him.
Mr. Bright's eloquence and courage
were shown when in 1861, foreseeing
the issue of the struggle in Amerioa,
he stood as the representative of a
exceedingly small portion of the educated community of tbe country,
though he undoubtedly represented a
large part of the national sentiment.
All causes having his powerful advocacy made a distinct advance in the estimation of the world. Pursuing his
enconium Mr. Gladstone concluded by
saying that Mr. Bright's name was indelibly written in the annals of time
upou tho hearts of the great overspreading race to which he belonged,
whoae wide extension he rejoiced to
see, snd whose power and prominence
he believed were full of promience and
glory for the best interests of mankind.
Eulogistic seeches were also made
by Mr. W. H. Smith, Lord Harting-
ton, Mr. Chamberlain and Mr, Justin
McCarthy. Mr. McCarthy said that
he heartily endorsed the noble speech
of Mr. Gladstone. His memory of
Irish events carried htm back to the
time whon Mr. Bright had championed the Irish cause and therefore he
claimed the right of Ireland to lay a
wreath of immortelles upon that statesman's grave.
Texada Mews.
Tho str. Muriel arrived this afternoon from Texada with a number of
passengers. The latest advices are
that the now company which is composed almost entirely of Vanoonver
capitalists will immediately take over
a large crew of men, and commence
the development of tho mine. It is
the intention of the new company to
construct a wharf at an early dato so
as to faciliate tho shipment of on to
tho Vancouver smelter. The Muriel
brought down about half a ton of ore
which ia to be taken to Vancouver.
Mr. Hugh Kirke, the discoverer of
the ledges on whieh are situated tho
Gladstone, Sally Bray, Waddle, North
Star and the Nut Cracker claims arrived by Ihe Muriel to-day, and left
at this offloe a sample of dirt and broken rook from tho Nut Cracker claim
recorded by Mr. Dugdale now bonded
to Mr. Robert Evans and Hugh James
of this oity. In the dirt can be seen
large pieces of gold. The sample indicates a very rich ledge, tho liko of
which has nover before been seen in
British Columbia. Mr. Kirke and
the other owners are to be congratulated on tho fortune that now awaits
thom In the development of this ledge.

London, March .30.—Tho Oxford'
Cambridge boat race was rowed to-day.
on tho old course from Putney to
Mortlakc. An immense number of
people witnessed the race snd the excitement and enthusiasm were intense.
As usual the dark blues were the favor*
ites. Altera magnificent race.Cambridge won by several lengths. The
weather which promised a fair day
early, settled into a heavy rain before
the race came off and created great
discomfort among the vast crowds who
lined tbe river bank, and those who
were afloat in every conceivable kind
of craft. The crews made an excellent
start at 1. 13 p. m. The Cambridge
crew took the lead immediately Snd
passed under Hammersmith bridge, a
boat length ahead of the Oxford crew,
which was working hard. Both crews
were rowing well as they passed the
bridge but Oxford shortly afterwards
became maddened and woro put out of
trim by bad steering. Tbe men be- ,
gan splashing and almost collapsed at
Barneabridge. Near tbe end of the
course they made a final spurt and did
some good work, but it was too late
aud failed to win the race. The Cambridge crew rowed smoothly and well
throughout and came in 4 lengths
ahead. The time of the' Cambridge
orew was 20 minutes, 14 seconds.
STEAMSHIP  OCT  IN TWO.
London, March 30.—The Oatend

Comptesse Flanders were drowned.
The Flanders was out in halves and the
forepart sank immediately. The Henrietta after rescuing the remainder of
the ill-fated vessel orew and passengers
fastened a line to the after part of the
ship and began towing it towards Os-
tend. It soon apsized, however, and
sank. Among the rescued passengers
of tho Flanders was Prinoe Jerome
Bonaparte. There was a dense fog at
the time.

FULL PARTICULARS.
Auckland, Maroh 30.—A hurricane
at Apia on March 15th drove every
vessel in the harbor on shore, exoept
the English man-of-war Calliope, whioh
!ot to sea. The Trenton and Van-
alia aro total losses. The Nipsic is
beached with her rudder gone and may
be saved, but the chances are against
it. Sho will be sent to Auckland if
possible. The Vandalia lost four officers and 39 men. All were saved
from the Trenton. The Trenton and
Vandatia's crews aro on shore, and the
Nipsio's are on board. All stores
possible were saved. The German
ships Adler and Eber an total losses;

Later dispatches about the hurricane
in Samoa, in whioh the American and
German war vessels wen wrecked,
state the storm occurred on the 15th
of this month. At the fint approach
of tbe hurricane the vessels all -*at*
pted to put to sea, but ths English man-of-war Calliope was the only
one able to get out of the harbor, The

CUMARCK LIVES.
Berlin, Maroh 29.—During the
discussion of tho Aged Workingmen's
Insurance bill in the Reichstag to-day.
Van Boettichen, the imperial minister
of the interior, described as offensive
the insinuation that Princo Bismarck
attached nu importance to the measure.
Princo Bismarck Baid that he had
only been provented from attending
the meetings of tho committee having
charge of tbo bill by the state of business of great importance. "Those
who consider that I am dying," he
said, '-are very much mistaken.
Foreign politics claim my principal attention."

Saturday Evealng. March 30, 1889.
It is plainly recognized to be in
the lino of progress for cities to extend their corporate limits, and
bring their suburbs nil under one
general civic administration. A
proposal is taking shape juat now
in the New York legislature to ex
tend the limits of the city of NowYork, so us to embrace not only
New York and Brooklyn, bul also
Staton Island, the whole of King's
County, and the towns of Flushing,
Newton, Jamaica, nnd Westchester, The city thus constituted would
take rank as the second city of population, and rs one of the very largest in exteut. The space covered
wouldbe 320 square miles, and tho
population embraced in the limits
■ would be about three millions. Jersey City, Newark and Hoboken aro
, left out, though essentially a part of
Xew York. Of course, the ampler
sspeaB wooM not relieve the present
KW-wdtail liOEU&tioa of the present
«&•$,, ii*fm*g&. m ao far as a general
Upvatraing- Swiy tor the whole area
mijjjifc ba row* likely than the separ-
ii£t!.:-ta.iM„iI_: uq;v existing to extend
yiDiffujilUtrnfoc travel between the
-.'imor-ii m-as and the outlying parts
by dlie (-riii-flion of bridges and other
wiie*. The area of cities varies
jgroaH; and with little regard to
nombers. London, in one definition
of tbe term, embraces the amplo
space of 690 square miles for a population of five millions; Philadelphia, with its million of inhabitants
and its tens of thousands of detached
residences, covers one hundred and
thirty square miles. Toronto, with
its 170,000 people to sixteen square
miles, is not quite so liberal iu space,
but is vastly more roomy than Paris
or Copenhagen or thnn Berlin,
which, with about 1,300,000 inhabitants, is credited with a superficies
of only twenty-eight square miles.
An   eastern   exchange  does not
agree with the opinion of a cotemporary to the effect that oratory is
declining in both the United States
aad Canada, if by "oratory" is meant
ibe cJe&r and forcible expression of
-eijffinSan in public by intelligent antl
fiidfUHii smil and supports its views
_* CaJknis:  Tbe formation of debat*
ina**; $;■«■•-*:«-,, -ather on the parlia-
menlaiy model or ou political lines,
tbe fact that literary societies exist
ai  all  the universities and muuy
leading educational institutions, that
it is qqite common for young people's
associations in connection with the
various churches to have a debating
circle, are facts which point to quite
a different conclusion than that of
the decline   of  oratory.   How far
success  is attained in these praiseworthy attempts is of course another
mutter, but there does not seem to
be any doubt that public speaking is
being cultivated in and out of our
legislatures with a fair measure of
snecess.   It is not alone men more
or loss devoted to the professions or
to   literary   pursuits   who  evince
ability to address audiences with
skill and vigor, but among the ranks
of commercial men are to be found
an increasing number who can express their views in choice languago,
and make their points with marked
power.   The number of   societies,
leagues and gatherings of every sort
hus been growing so rapidly of late
years that it would appear but reasonable to  assume that tho amount
of  speechifying required   at  their
meetings would have produced a curtain  supply   of  speakers, and as
almost every man belongs to at least
one of these organizations, it is easy
to test the truth of tho assertion we
mako that there is a great improvement  in  public speaking of  late
years, and that (lunula has no cause
to be at nit ashamed of her progress
in this respect.    Jf by oratory is intended only the most ambitious efforts, then it muy be snid thnt oratory, liko  other things, is being in-
. fluenced   by modern   ideas.   Long
speeches nro going out of  fashion.
Some of tho best parliamentary efforts are  now mndo in an hour or
,   two   instead of  being spread over
several  hours  and  delivered to a
semi-Bomnolent audience.   Condensation of thought nnd cogency of argument  combined   nre  now much
■ought after, and no one will deny
that  the  speaker  who  cultivates
these qualities necessarily excludes
himself from the use of tbe finest
arti of eloquence.   The age has no
time for set  orations of  appalling
i length when the samo thing oan bo
•aid in leu space; both on the platform and  in the pulpit orators are
consulting the wishes of tbe listeners
fa this respeot. and losing nothing
'.' by it.  Pulpit eloquence is as effect-
, ive now as in past days, and statesmen do not lack tor attentive audi*
•noas, showing that thero is node,
eline in the general desire to encourage public speaking.   On the whole,
.. Canada haa reason to be proud of
the orators of high class she pos>
Mites, as well as  the  very  lartte
number who may be more modestly
designated   as   excellent    public
speakers. 	
Postmastcr-l..enoral Haggart's al*
leged improvements in the postal
service of tho country are not meeting with approval, but, on the contrary, aro tho subject of vory general
ad verso criticism. Nothing can be
said against the proposed ohango of
increasing the weight of ordinary
letters from .3 conts per half-ounce
to 3 cents per ounce, but the provisions with respect to drop letters
and for registration are particularly
objectionable. Drop lotters it is
proposed to make 2 cents por ounce
instead of 1 cent per half-ounce. As
tho great majority of drop letters
would come under the half-ounce
weight, it is difficult to see any advantage to the public in this regulation. The proposed increase in registration from two to ten cents (a
uniform rate to all postal union countries) docs not, either, appear, on the
face of it, to have been designed in
the public interest, although all
these changes tend to greater simplicity nnd ease of manipulation in
the postal machinery of the country,
which is a point not to be ignored
altogether, and for the extra registration additional security will no
doubt, be given. The measure will,
of course, tend to put a Btop to the
registration of letters carrying small
amounts. An eastern journal criticizes tho proposed increase in registration as follows: "When it is
bomo in mind that the total nnmber
of letters passing through tho mails
during every twelve months is over
seventy-five millions and the number of postal cards over sixteen millions is not to be wondered nt that
a proportion of them go astray.
Letters go astray from many causes,
usually by tho fanlt of the sender,
who either does not address them
properly or does not stnmp thom
sufficiently. Among the letters returned from the dead letter office nt
Ottawa were no fewer than 13,928
registered letters, besides 2665
letters containing enclosures of value
that were not registered. Of the
letters lost or stolen while pussing
through the post office 204 were
registered, while 273 containing
money but not registered went the
same way, no trace of them being
found. The postal department would
greatly prefer if every letter containing money were registered, so
that in the event of it going astray
tbey would have some means of
tracing it, but for all this many
people continuo to take their
chances of the letter reaching its
destination, not feeling disposed to
pay tho two cents registration fee.
How it will be when the postal department increases the registration
lee, as it purposes doing? If people
will not register their letters when
the fee is only two cents it may be
taken for granted that thoy will not
register them when tho fee is not
two, but ten, and thus thero will be
more letters of value lost than
ever. It would be interesting to
know on what ground tho department justifies tho proposed increase."
The ground, or grounds, are, probably, in the first place, to simplify
the workings of the postal machinery
by having a uniform registration
rate for all postal union countries,
which is the same, too, wo believe as
that of the United States, and, fui-
ther, to be enabled. to give greater
security for valuable letters that the
senders can well afford, for this consideration, to pay the higher registration rato on, Although the
higher proposed changes may not be
popular, it will be seen that thero
are compensatory advantages involved.

The Extraordinary Romance of a
Secret Marriage.
A Couple Lire Apart for Twenty-Five
Tears and Find Eaeh Other by Mere
Accident—An Occurrence
Thy Beads Like Fie t lou.
One of those remarkable occurrences
which read more liko fiction than fact has
taken place in this city during tho last fourteen days, says \he Chicago Tribune.
Tbe commencement of this wonderful
narrative in tbe lives of two nersons dates
back twenty-live years, when John L.
Smitn and Catherine Brady were secretly
married in County Cavan, Ireland. Smith
was a poor boy, while Miss Brady's father
was a well-to-do farmer, owning bis own
jaunting-car and putting on considerable
style when ho drove to town market day or
to the parish church Sunday, whilo the
HmltU family had to content themselves
with shank's mare. As may be easily imagined Mi*. Brady was furious when he dis*
covered that his daughter Catherine had
married without bis cousent, and still
worse to a man not her social equal. So enraged did Brady become that he refused to
recognize Smith as his son-in-law or permit
hia daughter to livo with the man whom
nho bad married.
Smarting under this indignity, young.
Smith resolvod to emigrate to the United
States, and thore by the sweat of Ids brow
earn sufficient money to send for his wife
and take hor away from her hard-hearted
father. Wltb this object in view Smith bade
good-bye to his wife and relatives, and
soiled for New York. As misfortune would
have it, the vessel upon which he sailed was
wrecked off Newfoundland and a good many
of the passengers were drowned, Smith's
name appearing among those Which were
published at the time, But in this thero
was a mistake, as Smith survived and arrived at that haven of rest, Castle Garden.
Be lost no time after landing in finding his
way into Brie County, Fa., where he
obtained work on a farm. There he la*
bored hard and saved his money, in hopes
of soon having sufficient to send for his
wife. He wrote to her, but received no
answer. This discouraged him, and after a*
year or two be came to tho conclusion- that
she had been sufficiently influenced by her
father to discard him. Consequently he
■learned to forgot her, and after some years,
considering himself a free man, ho married
and started West, settlingin Oregon, where
he owns a fine farm of land and quite a supply of live stook.
During all this time Miss Brady, or rather
Mrs. Smith, had her trouble and trials.
The letters written to her by her husband
from the United States never reached her.
Whether they were suppressed by her
father or not she never knew. At all events,
she came to the conclusion that Smith had
deserted her, and to getaway from her associates, .who wero accustomed to gibe her
on being neither maid, miss, nor widow, sho
resolved to go to tho farthest part of the
earth, where no ono would know her nor
any of her troubles.
Ascertaining tbat an emigrant vessel was
\ about to sail from Ireland for New South
Wales, she packed her trunks and started,
arriving in Sydney after a five-months' voyage There she went to work as a domestic
at £1 a week. Bemg a flne-lookinir, strapping young woman, sho soon attracted an
admirer, named Vaughan, who hold a good
position in a surveyor's offlco. Vaughan and
i Miss Brady—for she still retained her maiden name, considering hor marriage with
Smith something liko a dream—woro married and lived comfortably on Elizabeth
street, Sydney. After twelve or fourteen
years of married lifo Vaughan, while on a
surveying expedition in Queensland, was
killed by the natives, leaving his wife childless and with but little means. In this condition she struggled along for some years,
and finally came to San Francisco upon tho
advice of a Mrs. Randall, whom Bhe had
known in Sydney. On her arrival here she
roomed with Mrs. Randall
A few weeks ago Mrs, Randall, her son,
a young man, and Mrs.Vaughan went to the
Alcazar. On one of tho sido seats close by
whoro tho trio sat was a countrified-looking
man with gray hair and a weather-beaten
face. He watched tho play during tho flrst
two acts with all tho Intensity of a farmer
who but seldom has a chance to visit the
theater. During the Intermission between
the second and third acts, howover, young
Randall vacated his soat, This brought the
country farmer in full view of Mrs. Randall
and Mrs. Vaughan. Tho farmer saw Mrs,
Vaughau's face, ho paid attention to her
voice, and heard her laugh at some remarks
made by Mrs. Randall. After this the
stage had no more attraction for him. Ho
kept his eyes riveted upon the woman. He
was magnetized. Ho watched and waited
Impatiently until tho play was over. When
the audience stood up to leave he kept as
near Mrs. Vaughan as ho could until the
sidewalk was gained, when he excused
himself to the ladies and"boldly asked Mrs.
Vaughan If her maiden namo was not Catharine Brady, and it she was dot from tho
County Cavan, Ireland. Bhe answered yes,
but wished to know why he asked such a
question. He said if. she would give bim her
address he would call and inform her why
he did so.
He was furnished with the address, and
true enough he called tho next day and
mado himself known. It was then discovered that tho young couple who wero married in Ireland twenty-five years ago met,
, as it were, by providential means In this
citv. Smith being a widower, as hu wife
had died about two years ago, and Mrs.
Vaughan being a widow fora number of
years, a seoond marriage was deemed not
necessary, and the old ties were simply renewed, Mr, and Mrs. Smith are now upon
their ranch, where no haughty father can
step between them, and where thoy can entertain euch other for some time recounting tho story of their livos and vicissitudes.        	
THE 8TANFORD TOMB.
A California MUllonalre'Senator's Hagntfl-
ctut Mausoleum.
The architect who planned the magnificent mausoleum of Senator Stanford at San
Francisco was In Washington tho other
dny, writes a correspondent of the Philadelphia Press. Ho soys that It will bo tbe
most elaborate repository tor the dead ever
Duilt in tnis country. Tho beautiful mausoleum of Jay Gould at Woodluwn and ihe
magnificent tomb of tho Vnndcrbilts at
Huguenots, Btateu Island, will bo eclipsed
by this work of monumental art.
In stylo of architecture tho simple, but
effective, methods of the ancient Egyptians
will bo followed. Mass-vo imperishable
granite, of a light shade of gray, with an
interior lining of the finest Italian marble
will be employed. The item of expense has
nol been considered, tho designers Doing
given carte blanche as to cost, and directed
to secure the best of material and workmanship io be had. Tho total outlay necessary to complote the tomb and prepare tbe
surroundings will reach $100,000, and may
considerably exceed that amount, Tho item
of transportation alone will be a large one,
as tho granite will all oo shipped from Vermont nnd tho marble from Italy.
The site selected Is a beautiful four-acre
plot in the tjonator's grounds just outside
of San Francisco. It already contains handsome shrubbery,: and occupies an altitude
commanding a magnificent view of tho bay.
A driveway sixty feet wido will bo made,
circling around a slight elevation, on tho
brow of which will bo tho tomb. Tho nrt of
tho landscape gardener will bo employed to
beautify tho approaches, and render oven
moro offoetive tho vistas of the park.
The structure will bein tho form of a temple and will be twooty-flvo feet square.
There will be a doublo row of massive granite columns supporting the partico roof at
the front, On each side of the entrance
will bo a majestic sphinx,carved from a single block of granite. Heavy bronzo gates
close the entrance and within aro solid
doors of pollaliod granite. Tho roof and
sides uro also of granite, and aro to be built
In tbo most substantial manner.' Tho stone
employed Is the Barro granite, from Bar re,
Vt, It hu a slight bluish-gray tint, wbloh
shows delicate carving to advantage, and
rotaini itt color.without Qbug& Each block
was out the requisite shape at the quarry
and marked to designate its position. Thoy
wero then boxed to prevent Injury, and
shipped lo San Francisco. All of Uio main
portions of tho struoture have been sonton,
and work on tho oxcava'ions of tho tomb
havo been commenced. The carving of tho
shpinxes and tho more delicate portions of
tho stonp work havo been done in this city.
The two majestic sphinxes aro admirably
done, and as worthy guardians of tbo ashes
of an American monoy king as their prototypes wore of the remains of the ancient
Ptolemies.
The interir of the mauseloum will be done
in white marble. The celling will bo a single arch of marble with a span of twenty-
five feet. There will be no crypts or vaults,
and provision will be made for the remains
of only threo persons—those ol the Senator
and Mrs. Stanford and the son. Theso will
occupy sarcophagi placed on the three sides
of tho chamber. The body of the son, over
whleli Dr. Tolmago preached tho funeral
oration nearly two yoars ago, ie now ln a receiving vault in San Francisco awaiting the
completion of tho tomb. The sarcophagi
aro boing made in Italy. Eaoh one will bo
hown from a single blook of tho purest
whito marble. The lid will be made of a
separate pieco, and the exterior ornamented
with tho most exquisite serving. Tho caskets containing the bodies will be inclosed
In a leaden casing beforo being placed in
tho sarcophagus. Bach receptacle will
contain an appropriate inscription, and tho
name "Stanford" will appear over tho
entrance.	
GORGEOUS C08TUMES.
Dresses, Gowns  and Cloaks  That Coil
Handsome Fortunes.
Worth, the (treat dressmaker of Paris, in
a recent conversation with a reporter, said:
■'Thoso ladies are wisest who leave the
choice ontlrely to us. By so doing, tbey are
olwaya better pleased in the end, and tho
reputation of tho bouse is sustained. Curiously enough, tho persons who realize this
fact most clearly are precisely those whom
you might fancy the most difficult to pleaso.
For example, a telegram comes-from the
Empress of Russia: 'Send me a dinner
dress.' Nothing more. We are left absolute freedom as to style and material. Not
that tho Empress is indifferent In the matter of dross. Quite the contrary. Bhe will
sometimes require that all the ladies' costumes at a certain ball be pink, or red, or
bluo, And hor own toilets are always master-pieces of elegante. Tho point Ib that
sho trusts our judgement rather than her
own. In tho same way, during the last few
days, wo havo received ovor twenty telegrams from Madrid for ball dresses, and we
shall mako thom up as we think best."
■ "How long does tt take to All these telegraphic orders?"
"Why,we genorallywantaweek,but if
necessary wo can finish a costume in twenty-four hours. Wo have hod French ladies
order a dross in the morning and dance in
it c at night. I remember once making a
gown for the Empress Eugenie ln three
hours and a half. Of course suoh rapidity
would be impossible if elaborate work was
required. It often takes weeks to completo
an embroidered gown. At the timo of the
coronation of the present Emperor of Russia we had girls working night and day for
six weeks on a court train for tho Empress,
wh'ch was covered with magnificent embroidery in real silver. That train alone
cost 35,000 francs, and will be preserved iu
the State Musoum as a historical curiosity.
"You ask mo if fabulous sums are sometimes paid for dresses, It is quite impossible to mako any estimate as to that, If
you begin putting on gold thread, jewels,
etc., of courso there Is no limit to tho cost
Some years ago a Peruvian heiress paid
us 120,000 francs for a single gown, 113,000
francs being tho cost of tho laco alone.
Bomo timo ago we sold a cloak for 45,000
francs, of which 44,000 francs went for the
fur.
" Oh, yes, wo count among our patrons
the ladies of all the courts in the civilized
world, tbat is, all with a singlo exception,
Queen Victoria has never honored ub with
hor patronage."	
PINS IN  HIS MOUTH.
The Peculiar Habits or on Old California
Colored Han.
A tall, stoop-shouldered colored man
came along the street the other day.
A pack of small boys stood at a street corner waiting for him to come up. As ho
got to the corner one of them greeted him
with:
"Hello, All"
"Hullo yo'self, chile," retorted Al.
"Giramo a pin, All"
"Sartinly."
The aged negro screwed his mouth '_to
half a dozen shapes, inserted his thumb and
forefinger into tho capacious cavity, shut
ono eye and openod tho other wido, liko a
man feeling of a soro tooth, hunted around
iu hiB mouth and then drew out a pin, which
bo banded to the youngster.
"Hyar, boy," ho said to another of the
gamins, "hyar's another," and he went
through a like performance aud brought
out a second phi.
Tho operation was repeated until the puck
of seven or eight urchins had all got one.
"They call him -Nigger Al."'said the
constablowho told a Stockton Mall reporter
about the street-corner scene, " and thoy
say ho sleeps with them pins in his mouth.
He's dono that sort of thing for fifty years,
I guess, becauso nobody ever knew Al to
run short of pins, and it's likely he learned
tho trick when he was a boy, and now ho'd
feel lonesome If he didn't havo a lot of 'em
in his mouth. I've seen that samo thing
happen twenty times, I reckon. Every boy
ln town knows Nigger Al, and whenever
they see him coining they stop and ask him
for a pin.
" Butthe funniest thing is, he sleeps with
them in his mouth, that's what tho colored
people say. I suppose his lungs must be
chock full of rosty pins, sticking around
inside of his lights like porcupine quills.
Bomo of 'em work out through tho skin occasionally, and it bothers the old man to put
on his clothes in the morning-finding a
miscellaneous assortment of pins sticking
out of his body and hooking onto his shirt,
that way, so ho can't get it on without ripping something."
A Kentucky Apology*
When a man makes an apology there is no
use in doing It half-way, A citizen of
Breckinridge County, Ky., wroto on article
and published it in tho Brecklnrldgt News.
Ho was waited upon by some of tho persons to whom ho had mado allusion, and in
a subsequent issue of tho- samo papor ho
mado tho following retraction, which ap-
pears to cover tho wholo ground: "In that
artltlo X made charges which aro falso and
malicious. Of this I am satisfied after duo
reflection and examination. Baid artlolo 1
rotract in toto, collectively and Individually, as a premeditated, malacious and willful falsehood. Also aU former charges
made, verbal or written, derogatory to tho
character of the abovo-named gentlemen
are withdrawn at falso and without any
foundation. The article was prompted by
envy, mallco and solflshnoss to injure the
good name ot tha abovo-named parties."
The Coarse of True Love. s
About sovon years ago Miss Jennie
Rlcho and Lee Estet, both of Council Bluff t,
la., flnt met, and in a short Ume were on-
gaged to he married, but quarreled, and
Lee began giving his attention to Jennie's
sister, and Jennie found another comforter.
Matters remained thus until a few days
ago, when Leo finally came to the conclusion that he still loved Jennie more than he
did her lister. He colled on her, but received a cold " snub," ahd ho then declared
that if the wouldn't come to terms ho
would devour a box of poison. Jennie then
took compassion on him, and they are now
married and happy as two big sunflowers,
and ttie would-be suicide has postponed operationi until somo future time.
The Alaska Purchase.
Prosldont Johnson wan abused for the
purchase of Alaska as muoh at Jefferson
was when ho bought Louisiana. Tho price
paid was (7,000,000. Tho Alaska Commercial Company has already paid about Efi,-
000,000 in seal rout for tho Islands of Bt
Paul and St George, and the products of .
the Torritory last year lit officially stated to

would be cancelled. John Hamilton,

Yesterday afternoon the polico wore
notified that John Walker, barkeeper
of the Beehive Saloon, Fort Btreet,
was lying dead in his bed at Mr. J.
Levy's Restaurant and Logding House,
Government street. The officers wont
to the restaurant, burst open the door
of Walker's room, and there found tho
body aa reported. Medical assistance
was obtained and Dr. Redmond inado
an examination of the body. Ho gave
his opinion that deceased hnd been
dead about 36 hours, and the remains
wero already becoming decomposed.
A morphine injector, with a sponge
saturated with the drug and a partially
filled bottle, were found in .the room
and the presumption is that the unfortunate man, who was known to be in
the habit of using morphine hypoder-
mically, hud over-dosed himself, with
tho result that death ensued. Mr.

John Rogers was arrested by Officer
Levin about 7:30 o'clock last evening
charged with entering tho R. 0. Cathedral on View Btreet, and stealing
therefrom two candlesticks and four
prayer books. Rodgera is the same
muu who was arrested a fow days ago
on suspicion of being one of the men
who entered Mr. Gage's residence, but
was discharged for want of sufficient
evidence Tho accused pawned the
prayer books and one of the candlesticks at A. A. Aaronson's, who noticing the names of the owners on tho flyleaf uf the books, at once concluded
the articles were stolen, and accordingly notified the police. After quite n
search for Rodgers, Officer Levin found
him near the cathedral and took him*
to the police station. Upon being
soached, the second candlestick was
fouqd in his possession. The clergy
were unaware of tho rubbery until nott*
by the pulice officer. Rodger says
that tho articles were dropped by
another man and that ho had picked
them up ou the street. Ho will have
a hearing before the police magistrate
to-day.—Colonist.

LOCAL PARLIAMENT
lVittrrdny'it Proceedings In llie Pravlu-
clal Legislature
VicToitiA, March 29.—Tho speaker
took thu chair at 2 p. in.. Prayers
wero rend by Rev. Mr. Beanlanda.
Mr. Ladner presented the report of
tho select committee appointed to enquire iuto the artesian well boring.
Thu committee ib of opinion thut one
test is not sufficient and that others
should be made. The report was
adopted.
The provincial secretary brought
down the government bill in respect of
grants of land for charities.
Mr. Ladner moved that "whereas
great anxiety ia now felt with regard
to the width of tho draw in tho proposed bridgo nt St, Mary's Mission
owing to the draw being only 60 foet
wide and some Btemners on the Fraser
hnvo a width of 41 feet thus leaving
only ',)_ feet on eaeh side, the river at
that point also having a very strong
current: Bo it therefore resolved, that
a respectful addres- be presented to
tho lieutenant-governor requesting
him to call the attention of the Dominion government to the question
and urge that the above bridge be bo
constructed ns not to interfero with
tho safe navigation uf theriver." The
mover satd thnt this bridge question
wns of interest to tho country nnd
should receive tho attention of the
government. He spoke of several
boats plying on tho river which were
very wide ono being wider than the
proposed draw. If tho bridge is left
as planned, it would interfere greatly
with river navigation. There was a
swift current nt this point of the river.
The draw was too narrow nnd he hoped that some pressure would be
brought to bear on tho Dominion government to have the draw widened.
The chief commissioner of works
thought tho'resolution a very wise one
as 60 feet for a draw seemed very narrow in n river like tho Fraser. He
pointed out that no plans Imd boon
sent to the provincial government concerning the bridge.
Mr. Dunsmuir said he was . not euro
but what it might bo better that the
draw should bo sixty feot in width.
The resolution wus carried.
The house then wetit into committeo,
Mr. Hit-gins in the chnir, on tho supply
bill. The committee rose nnd reported
tho bill complete with amendments.
On motion to receive the report
Mr. Grant spoke against it, stating
that if the government got their supplies, they could closo the house at any
time.
The provincial secretary said that
tho government had repeatedly stated
that it had no such intention.
The report was roceived, adopted,
read the third time and passed.
Tlie house then went into committee, Mr. Duck inthe chair, to consider
the Vancouver incorporation act
amendment act. The bill wns reported
complete with amendments to be considered on Monday.
The provincial secretary moved the
Becond reading of tho bill granting a
subsidy to tho Kootenay Railway Co.
After ubout an hour's debato the second reading was carried. The house
went into committee on tho bill, Mr.
Mason in tho chair. Ab 6 o'clock the
committee roso, reported progress and
aiked leave to sit again, Tho house
then adjourned till 7:30.
The speaker again took the chair nt
7:30p. m. ,J1(  ._,,,,   -,
The Kootenay Railway Company
bill was read a third time nnd passed,
. Tho mineral bill was read n third
time and passed.
The Canadian Western Railway bill
passed its second reading. Tho bill
granting lands in Lulu Island to tho
city of Westminster, passed its aecond
rending. The medical and- surgery
bill wus read a third time and passed.
The house then adjourned till Moo-

CORRESPONDENCE.
Chlldrifl Cf]f for Pitcher'J Castoria (pntat-vy a few days ago, is dead.
No Innovation--.
Editor Colum man .—If report be true
how are we degenerating. Ia it contact
with the dusky brethern or have we been
contaminated by the Heathen Chinee;
Or ia climatic influence at work and iB
tbe good old fashioned way of love making a failure ? Surely no, Although ono
from whom
"The graces of my youth bath fled
Willi all the hairs that once adorned ray
head,"
Yot my heart is not bo dead to beauty
that I ahould be content to kisa the ond
of n stick aud pass it up to the lady of
my lovo and feel pleased to Bee her accept, in this manner, what ought to have
been placed direct upon her rosy lips.
Ah, Mr. Editor, some of your knights
of the pen havo been unable to Bee much
good In tho old country or its old fashioned ways, but with nil due deference
to you Canadians, permit me to retain,
at leant, this one custom of my native
land.
The grenteBt authorities in all ages on
thia subject have boen tho poets, nnd
England s greatest pastoral bard says,
"For why? becauso tbe good old rule
HuOlcotli them-tbo simple plan-
That nmialit ahould over come between
Tbe lips of maid and mnn."
And with reference to letter writing in
love making, a prnctico that I nm sorry
to Bay this ngo of travel has compelled
many to resort to, to toll tho old old
story, a poet of my own country saya that
the lasses
"Wa'd rather ha'ot by word o* mouth
In oor kail yard,"
And why? Because it could be otnplia*
bI/ciI hy tlio sweetest and purest pleasure
that love sick youth and inaidou can in-
dulit-o in.   So away with your stick for
thin purpose, but If it must be used bring
it lustily over the back of oue who muBt
be flrst cousin to Mr, Verdant Green,
Yours, eto.,
Ardent Though Aucd Lover.
[We do not wish to be accused of dense-
nesa, especially in the matter of love,
but our "Ardent though aged lover"
must excuse ub whon wo acknowledge
the drift of this letter is as meaningless
to the editor as tlie hieroglyphics on an
Aztec tombstone. At tho same time we
are perfectly willing that our correspondent should transact his love affairs in
any manner suited to Iub own tastes,
and he may rest perfectly assured thai
ho will not be opposed in any way by
tho Ed.]
