One of the fancies of the king of
Wurtemberg is to ascertain whether
the moon is inhabited, by causing
photographs to be taken of that
luminary and then magnifying the
negatives a hundred thousand-fold.
The pictures produced by this process show nebulae with little dots,
and the king declares the dots to be
men and women. He hopes eventually to get some of them into
distinct shape,
i An exchange says: At a railroad
station in Portsmouth, Va., one of
the watch dogs was killed by being
run over. His mate went to the
place where he was buried, dug him
up, laid a piece of meat by his side
and then went away. No wonder
a fool dog like this went away, and
the probabilites are that he hid
himself for shame. A dog of this
cranky description really knows but
little more than a Chinaman.
An amateur pugilist in California
not long since pounded a regular
member of the "perfesh" into a pulp.
This is a sensation in fistic circles,
and the defeated professional admits
that he has never been so surprised
during the whole course of his
career. But then these amateur
lighters don't know any bettor than
to lick people. "How not to do if
seems as much tbo motto of the professional pugilist as it is of the professional "statesman" and detective.
At one of the recent Moody
revival meetings on the Pacifio
const the customary request was
made that those suffering from any
particularly heavy burden should
stand up and ask for tho prayers of
the assembled multitude. After a
few moment's silence, a tall, meek-
looking man arose, and in a voioe
choked with emotion asked that the
prayers'of the congregation might
be offered for his mother-in-law.
Instead of praying, the congregation
first began to titter, and finally
roared into laughter..—Ex.

It is known as the Jenneni estate,
and has been playing the part of an
ignis fatuus for a very long time.
Tne original Jennens claimant, having spent all his means trying to get
possession of hia supposed rights,
spent his last days in an almshouse,
Now a Jennens estate association is
being formed in the United States
of persons who do not pretend to
have a shadow of claim to the money
themselves, but who wish to speculate upon the chances of being able
to secure it for somebody else, with
the understanding that if they succeed they are to receive one-third of
the plunder. They are to invest
their money nominally to help a
man to secure his rights, but really
for the chance of making a big haul
for themselves.
The Pall Mall Gazette reports a
strange tale of the sea from the
Baltic. More than a hundred years
ago two vessels went to the bottom
of the Gulf of Finland, the cargo of
one of which consisted of glittering
silver. Two diving companies at
Revel have lately begun to explore
the submarine regions near Jussaro,
where the vessels sank, and the
divers have now really come upon
them. But, like the castle in which
tlie Sleeping Beauty lay, the hulls
had all been overgrown by a century's growth of seaweeds and tang.
Nbw a way haa been cut through
this wet wall of weeds, but as yet
the interior of the vessel has not
been explored, as th. divers fear
that the deck ia too rotten to carry
them. Of th. treasures of silver
nothing has so far come to hand, but
the remains of apples, cucumbers,
buckles, coffee pots, and shoes with
pointed toes have been brought to
the light of day, together with some
well corked bottles, all of which,
however, burst as aoon as the "air of
heaven" touched them. The second
vessel Ilea further but'at aba; on its
deck lies t great heavy stone, whioh
is evidently part of the cargo. As
soon as the Gulf of Finland throws
off ita coat of ice tbe investigation,
will be resumed.

TROUBLE FEiKED AT I'iNiMA
New Yobk, Mar. 7.—An officer at
the navy yard has received a letter
from an officer on the cruiser Atlanta
at Aapinwall, which says that trouble
can hardly be averted when work on

March 15th. The Colombian authorities and commanders of the U S. vessels Ussipee and Atlanta, and the British and French war vessels, have made
preparations to meet it The writer
says there has been a gradual reduction in the force, until now there are
but 10,000 men left These are living
in camps along the canal. It is feared
they will not only try to take possession of the Panama railroad, but that
the revolution reported brewing in the
interior may break out at the same
timo.

members of the firm of H. & A. Allen
says that should the government ac-
ccept theii proposition for quick Atlantic service it will entail an outlay
of £1,000,000 sterling for steamers,
and all the eastern paper are rejoicing over tbe proposal of the" government as announced in Foster's budget
speech to sudsidiae the Atlantic and
Paoific mail steamers.
Hon. John Haggart, postmatter-
gonersl, has given notice of a resolution providing that the sum payable,
for the registration of letters, unquestionably containing valuable matter,
shall in default of being presented for
registration, be charged as though regularly registered, that postage on loud or drop letters shall be two cents
per ounce, on periodicals issued less
frequently than every seven days from
lhe office of publication one cent per
pound.
Determined opposition is being organised Igainat the bill authorizing the
O.P.R. to consolidate their bonds, inclusive of those on new extensions.
The interests opposed to the syndicate
view, if is said, with extreme alarm
the granting of such unlimited powers
to a corporation already so powerful.
The proposed legislstion will enable
them to borrow 920,000,000 or 91,600
per mile, while the annual fixed
charges remain the same. The Grand
Trunk Railway is opposiug the bill and
a lively time in the house is expected.
Col. Prior has b„en to see the minister of militia and defence relative to
"0" battery barracks. It will oust
935,000 to complete Ihe barracks snd
this amount Col. Prior has asked to be
put in the supplementary estimates
for the purpose named. Sir Adolpho
Caron has informed him that he did
not think the government could appropriate this amount this year but a
part of the amount at least would be
provided.
Ia regard to the Oanadian Pacific
Railway Company's steamer, calling st
Victoiii en route from Vancouver to
China and Japan very little hopes sre
entertained of this beieg accomplished.
The government contends that the Imperial government will have to take

R, & N, Co.'s steamers who received
more than- sixty dollars per month,

of this a general strike occurred yesterday. The oompany thereupon agreed
not to carry the reduction into effect
and the men resumed work. No steamer arrived here from the sound hut
night but the str. North Pacific arrived this morning bringing the delayed mail* and passengers. The Olympian will arrive on schedule time this
evening.»

HE WILL FIX SAMOA.
Berlin, March 7.—Consul Stabel,
who succeeds Knapp at Samoa, haa
been made imperial commiuion.r,with
power to restore order in Samoa, and
to that end will have control of the
German squadron. He is a man of
experience and confirmed ability in
diplomacy.
THB SAMOAN AFFAIR.
London, March 7.—In th. house of
commons to-day Sir James Ferguson,
political secretary of the foreign office,
said in answer to a question that the
government had not heard of a truce
between tbe German consul in Samoa
and King Mataafa. England had no
right to interfere in the matter. He
had no doubt Germany had treated the
Ex-King Malietoa well.
THE ABDICATION.
London, March 7.—The abdication
of King Milan will create considerabli
uneasiness on the continent, chiefly
because M. Ristico, wbo is left in
charge, has no majority at the back
of him either in the Skuptcbina or the
country, and has intrigued equally
with Russia and Austria. Every effort
hss been made on the part of Austris
to keep King Milan up to the task of
kingship, and his abdication now is regarded in the Austrian capital as
meaning that Queen Natalie will be
bock in a month and Servia wilt be
fully under the Russian wing before
summer. Of course, suoh a situation
may easily precipitate a crash, aud
certainly will if Austria is encouraged
by her allies, Germany and Italy, to
interfere against Russian ascendancy
at Belgrade. As for King Milan himself, he has been for years the scandal
of royalty, and personally all will be
glad to ae e bim disappear. It is taken
for granted he will live in Paris with
the woman who wu responsible for
his rupture with Queen Natalie. It is
said the Arch-Duke Rudolph's suicide
is what prompted him to take this resolve to quit the throne. The new
king of Servia is a lad in his thirteenth
year. He is said to be an exception,
ally bright aud good boy, but the
chances are that when he comes to
yean of discretion there will be no
Servia for him to rule.
DIFFERENT VIEWS.
London, March 7.—In the correspondence on the Sackville affair to be
»*ralt*edWparnament, Lord Salisbury maintains that a minister should
remain at hia- post until his government considers his usefulness is impaired. .Mr. Bayard takes the opposite view.
AUSTRIA ALARMED.
The Austrian cabinet is alarmed at
Milan's abdication, fearing it wiil
throw Servia into the arms of Russia.
The North German Goalie takes a
favoiable view of the situation with
its results.

rARNELL COMMISSION.
London, Mar. 7.—The Parnell commission resumed this morning. Cole-
nun, an ex. American fenian from
Ontario, employed on the Pacific Railroad, detailed numerous outrages in
which he had token part while he lived in Ireland. He said McAuley told
him that the National League gave
him £200 for shooting Burke. On
cross-examination witness said he came
from America of his own accord to
testify. Nobody had promised him
any money for doing so, he admitted
he received £1000 from the government for acting as a spy in America.
He bought property at Winnipeg with
the money. Soames the rimes solicitor, then took the stand and testified
that a man named Walsh bad said he
eould produce documents to prove
Parnell snd O'Kelly were connected
with the importing of arms into Ireland, but did not know Ihe whereabouts of Walsh. This lut statement
caused on outburst of laughter in the
court. The commission adjourned until Tuesday.
ANOTHER TWO WEEKS.
London, Mar. 7.—There is reuon
to believe the Times will finish its osae

Thursday Evening, March 7. 1889.
Tlio people of thn " prairio province" nro still determined to have
a northern railway outlot to Hudson's Bay, but tliey are prudently
drawing in their horns us to tho
amount of government aid to bo
offered the undertaking. The polioy
of tho government toward tho enterprise is announced in tho following
notice of motion, made by Premier
Greenway in the legislature last
week: "Whereas, the legislature of
Manitoba did, during the session of
1888, pass an act authorizing the
lieutenant-governor in council, under
certain conditions, to grant aid to
the Winnipeg &■ Hudson's Buy Railway and Steamship Oompany by
guaranteeing interest on the bonds
of the company not exceeding $4,-
500,000; and wheroas, it is now believed that the maximum of such
guarantee for suoh purpose is too
great a liability for the province to
assume; and whereas, a cash bonus
instead of a guarantee of bonds is a
preferable mode of assisting railways; and whereas, for said reasons
it is desirable that the province
should assist to a reasonable amount
the construction of a railway to
Hudson's Bay; be it resolved, that
.this houso is of opinion that aid
should be granted to the company
if they are prepared to construct
and operate a railway from Winnipeg to Hudson's Bay in a sum not
exceeding 8*2,000 per mile as a cash
bonus for that portion of tho main
line of said railway within the
limits of this province, not exceeding in all 300 miles, such aid to be
paid on completion and operation,
or in instalments as the work progresses, providing tho company
furnislws guarantees satisfactory to
this house of its ability to complete
and operate said road. And this
house is further of the opinion that
before any aid be given by the
province tho company should secure tho payment of the principal
and interest of tho bonds already issued in aid of said railway. And
this house is further of the opinion
that this oil'or should be open for
acceptance until tutf* next regular
session of the legislature; and in case
an offer is accepted by the company
under conditions satisfactory to tho
lieutenant-governor in council, this
house should be fortmvra. BU&moneq
to consider the provisions of a contract to he entered into by the company on the foregoing basis."
It is ten years in November, observes an exchange, since Stanley,
returning from his groat journey
down the Congo, was met at Marseilles by two representatives of the
King of the Belgians, who was
anxious to enlist the services of the
distinguished explorer in furthering
his plans for establishing a now
African slate. Since that date much
has been done to carry out King
Leopold's great enterprise, and the
result of the ten year's labor has
been thus summed up by an officer
of tho state: The Lower Congo has
been opened up to navigation by
large vessels as far as Bonin, soundings have been made and the course
marked out by buoys, a cadastral
survey (a detailed survey of tho
lands) of the Lower Congo has boen
made as a step toward the preparation of a genoral map of the entire
region, justice is regularly administered in the Lower Congo, and a
trustworthy and cheap postal service has been established. Iu addition, registries of births, marriages
and deaths hnve been established for
the non-nativo population, and it is
expected that soon the natives near
the stations will also be brought
within the scopo of the registrar's
returns. At Banana, Boma, and
Leopold ville medical establishments
under tlie direotion of Belgian doc-
tore have been founded, and a considerable armed force of blacks,
officered by Europeans, has been
called into existence. The caravan
route between Matadi and Leopold-
ville is as free from danger as a
European road, and a completo service of porterage by natives has been
established. A railway has been
projected and the route almost entirely surveyed. The stato has established herds of cattlo var
tous stations, and in the very
heart of Africa, on the waters of the
Upper Congo, there is a fleet of
Bteamere every year increasing in
number. A loan of 150,000,000f.
has been authorized, and the first
issuo subscribed. Many of the more
intelligent natives from the country
drained hy the Upper Congo havo
taken service with the state, and
numeroui trading factories have been
established as for up the river as
BingAla and Louebo. In addition,
several private companies havo boen
' formed for developing the country,
and, finally, geographical discoveries

The Liberal party of Canada,
which contains in its ranks many of
tlio foremost and abler mon of the
Dominion, appears to have become
somewhat soured on its luck, and
otherwise demoralized, by its protracted, and seldom intermitted, sojourn in the cold shades of opposition. In the twenty-one years of
confederation, ending on the 30th
of June last, the Conservatives, under their victorious chief, Sir John
Macdonald, havo basked in tho sunshine of power and patronage for a
trifle over sixteen years, while their
political opponents, under Hon.
Alexander Mackenzie, than whom
an honester man never breathed
(which cannot bo said about somo
more successful politicians), havo
tasted tho sweets of office for the
short period of a little less than five
years—from Nov. 7, 1873, to Oct.
16, 1878. At the last general, election, in the early spring of 1887,
tho Liberals, under the doughty Edward Blake, mado a strong rally to
oust their opponents nnd savo the
country from their "ruinous extravagance" and mistaken policy on
tariff and othor questions. But the
country obstinately refused to be
saved, and the Conservatives didn't
oust worth a cent. The groat Blake,
from ill-health and a sense of failure
and his country's ingratitude .oppressing him, resigned the leadership
shortly afterwards, since which time
the Liberal party has been, measurably, in tho position of sheep having
no shepherd. Not that, the party
has been without a figure-bead alto
•Tether. But tho Liberal party is
plainly suffering to-day for lack of a
leader in tho true sense of the word—
a popular, tactful, magnetio chief,like
Sir John Macdonald, who can win
and hold not only the allegiance of
his party, but arouse the sympathy
and enthusiasm of tho country as
well, Given this much, if the
Liberal party ever expects to regain
power, except through tho blunders,
misgovornment, or decadence of its
opponents, ib must identify itself
with some definite and popular
policy. Recognizing the necessity
for n party cry and rallying point,
tho Liberal leaders would appear to
have grown desperate of lato, and
have cominittod the party to "commercial union," with a strong "annexation" aspect. If the intention
was, as appears probable, to "make
a spoon or spoil a horn," in a political sense, it is to be feared that tho
latter event utility hus been compassed
so far as the Liberal party's prospects
aro concerned. A revision of the
tariff, free trade, reciprocity, under
certain conditions, any Canadian
might consider with favor, but commercial union, or annexation, no
true Oanadian will listen to. In
identifying itsolf with such movements, the Liberal party has not, to
say the least, enhanced its credit
with the country nor hastened its
return to power. The treatment
which Sir Itiohard Cartwright's motion for the commercial treaty making'power for Canada received in the
house a short time ago is not a bad
index to the sentiment of the country on the larger question of commercial union, which Cartwright's
motion was, of course, intended to
lead up to us a sort of feeler. The
motion, as every one knows, was
badly defeated, and the debate on
tho question actually fizzled in the
house for want of interest.in it as a
live issue. The grand old Liberal
party in Canada, with its present
commercial union-annexation fad
and pro-American affectation generally, is rapidly going down hill.
Some strong leader is required to
give the word, "halt; right about
face!"

in the subject of this sketch, Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1862 and
has, through all the vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trade, maintained the even tenor of his way.
His translations have increased

mw XtmVHattltB. HISTOBY OF NIAGARA.
The Past and Future of tbe Unparalleled Cataract
Geological and Scientific Facts Concern-
lag the Falls Collected by Prof. Julius
Fohlmao-Chaages Wrought Within Forty-Five Years.
Prof. Julius Pohlman, ex-president of the
Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences, has
mado a thorough research into tho geological and solenttftc history of Niagara Falls,
vith ipecial reference to the time occupied
by natural changes In the cataract, their nature, effect and probable future character.
He has prepared a paper embodying all
these points, which, says tho New York
Tribune, will be found interesting reading.
Below is given an abstract of the report:.
The first sclentiflc survey of the Falls wu
mode ln 1843 by Prof. James Hall, the State
geologist of New York, and all of our exact
knowledge dates from bis maps. Prof. Hail
then gave the height of tho American Fall
90 W feet and of the Horseshoe Fall us 158
feet, counting theelmntlons from the waters' edge en October 4,1643, and he admits
that this starting point can vary from four
to twenty feot with tho rise and fall of the
water below tho Falls, He gavo the width
of the American Fall as 600 feet and that of
the Horseshoe Fall as 1,800 feet.
The Lake survey wont over tho ground
again iu 1875, and in tbeso thirty-three years
tho 'southernmost point of the Horseshoe
Fall bad receded ICO feet, while on the brink
of the American Fall differences of forty
feet were apparent.
Whon tbe American Association for the
Advancement of Science met here in 1886
the section of geology decided to
Niagara the problem ol the session, and for
that purpose Prof, Woodward, of Washing*
ton, and some of his assistants surveyed
tho brink of the Falls again. They found
an average recession for the whole face of
tho Fulls of about two and one-half feet per
annum, but'as the central parts of the
curve, whero the water Is deepest, retreated faster than the edges, the southern*
most point of the Horseshoe Fall was found
to have traveled south about 200 feet since
1875, or about 300 feet sinco 1842, nearly
nine feet every j-ear. tn view of such rapid
changes it seems highly probable that the
older pictures of the Falls, which always
place the Horseshoe Fall considerably
nearer than they are to-day, are practically,
or at least partially correct.
If the rate of retrocession remains during
the noxt Ave hundred years as it has been
for the last forty-fivo years, the Inner edge
of the Horseshoe Fall will have passed to
the cast of Goat Island, and as the line of
deepest water is near the Canadian shore
all.tbo waters of tbo river will pass over
the Horseshoe Fall, obliterating the American fall entirely and transforming Goat
Island. into a peninsula, on which the
smaller islands of to-day, Bath, Luna,
Chapin, etc., will appear as littlo hilltops.
The fall will then perhaps- be higher tban
to-day becauso tbo present descent of fifty
feet over tbe rapids will be added to tbe
height of the cataract, minus the namber of
feet needed to give tho necessary current
to the river below, which at present Is fifteen feet to the mile. Considering that
even now the Horseshoe Fall no longer recedes south but more east tban south,which
recession will be more easterly yet In the
course of time, it will have to travel about
fivo miles in that direction beforo the Niagara shale, which now occupies the lower
half of the face of tub fall, is under water'
and the. retrocession by means of undermining Is stopped. For at present the
changes that tako place are due to the foot
that tho upper eighty foet of tho face is
formed of a hard limestone, while the
lower eighty foet is composed of soft,
easily crumbling shale, which the spray
can wash away with easo to such an extent
that the overlying limestones lose their support, break off and tumble down with a corresponding change in tbe appearance of the
edge of the falls. Then tho changes will be
accomplished simply bj-tho eroding pqwer
of the wator and too fsJlairUrrcmsuu near-f,
tho northern end ot Grand Island for a
practically unlimited time. We thus seo
that after-the falls of to-day have receded,
Erasps three-quarters of a mile, there
only will ond fall;' when that'one
fall, bat traveled eut and south
four miles more and reaches Grand
Islandi It will again be divided into
an American and a Canadian cataract,
this time separated by Grand Island, and,
I Ike the falls of tp-Aay, the western branch
will carry the largest amount ot water, wili
recede futerand.be the lower of the two in
height. The hope of finally having the falls
at Buffalo must be abandoned, for from that
point of Grand Island to tho oity of Buffalo
only rapids can exist on account of the nature of the underlying rook, which is soft.
As the retrocession of the Falls of Niagara
began In what may be called, geologically,
tho most recent period, tho time necessary
for It to arrive at its present site has had a
very important bearing upon the question
of the ago of man on the American continent. As tong as it wu considered necessary to claim several hundred thousand
i years for the age ot Niagara alone, the age
i of the human race bad to bo computed at
perhaps half a million of years; no matter
how little such high figures agreed with
other discoveries, the rocky gorge of the
Niagara always presented au Insurmountable obstacle against any reduction of time.
But since we havo discovered tbat after all
the work of excavation oould bave boen accomplished In perhaps 8,000 years, our computation of the age of the human race bu
settled down to reasonable figures, whtch
give to the beds of sand and gravel in which
tho oldest human implements bave been
found an age; of perhaps 40,000 tb 60,000
years, and anthropologists claim that all the
facttrto far collected agree well with the
latter figure.^	
SOME COINCIDENCES.
Good Stories Oftiilieniil In a Washington
Hotel Lobby.
'Talking about coincidences," satd a
young man to a group in a hotel lobby the
other evening, within earshot of a Washington Mat man, "reminds me otaomethlng
rather remarkable Iti that line which happened to me tho other, day. You havo
noticed, perhaps,'- ha continued, "that Several Washington young mon'wear Egyptian
scarabs u watch ebarms, similar to this
one on my chain. Well, I met one of these
young mon tbe other day on tbe avenue,
and in course of conversation, noticing tbls
Uttle antique, he said: 'Do you know I
_ hove lost my scarab, uud I am mighty sorry
for It, too. It wu a genuine antique, and I
can't replace it. I thought at flrst that I
would recover it, as I tost it in a sleeping-
car coming from New York to Washington,
but all my efforts were fruitless, and so I
have ffiven it up.' Nbw, hero comes tho
strangopart ot it," continued the speaker.
--The- very next day I stopped on the avenue to have a moment's ohat with amutual
friend, a well-known official at tho Capitol.
Noticing my charm, ho said; ' 'What Is this
little trinket!' I explained, and he continued: 'Well, do you know, I found one
like that tbo otber day, and I thought at
first it, wu a mystical society badge of twino
kind, luid slipped It In my pocket" and never
thought any thing moro about It. I Mind
it under rather peculiar circumstances. I
went to New York the othor night, andl
wu tho last passenger to leavo tho sleeper
tn Jersey City., I made a hurried toilet, but
something hurt rayfoot, so that I had to
take off my shoe, And tbe little stone dropped.
out I couldn't lraogine whero it came from,:
and wu going to throw it away, but nolle.
Ing tho carved Inscription, changed my
mind, and slipped ft in my pocket.' -
" 'I think I know tbe owner,' I satd, and
soon hud the loser, and tbe finder talking
tssugh the telephone to eac^ other, and
ifpriuoriiu Wjelojd to bo»rof there,
ebry of hi»'loU ecsMb. Now* although
thoy wero well acquainted, nothing would
ever oome of It at all If both hadn't noticed
my charm and told of tbe loss and find."
'-Now, that's equal to a coincidence that
I knew of several years ago," satd the
Colonel, '.-ana it wu right hire In this hotel
oflice. Ibod in appoint ment ono evening to
meet an army captain who bod just arrived
that morning from New York. Henna
protty high liver and wu liable to take a
that he hod what he called a 'jag on1 the
night beforo. He was full before ho loft
Nov; York, and got fuller with some friends;
beforo lio turned in on tho sleeper. In the1
moruiiifr he was somewhat unsteady, but
dressed hurriedly and came up town. He
was very busy during tbe day, and although tic walked a good deal he hadn't noticed until dinner that he had been wearing another fellow's boots, and they were
at least a size too large for htm. Ho bad
just explained all this to me in answer to a
question as to how he wu, when I saw
him look steadily at a gentleman
who had stopped in the middle of the
office to light a cigar. All of a sudden he
jumped up, hurried across, and, slapping
the otber man on the shoulder, exclaimed:
''Why, B—, old boy, how are youl I
haven't seen you for ten years.' It appeared
they were old friends, who hod drifted
apart in the changing army life- He
brought his newly-found friend over aud
Introduced him. In the course of conversation the latter said: 'A funny and
rather disagreeable thing happened to mo
last night, and ram suffering from it still.
I camo over from New York on tho night
train.  Whilo getting dressed this morninp,
I called- tbe porter and aaid: 'These
aren't my boots.' 'Dey is de onttst ones
lef, boss, all do udder gents is gone, an' dey
inns' bo you ru.' There was nothing to lio
dono but wear them. Although too small
I managed to got them on, and have worn
thom all day. They seem to be shrinking
every hour, though, and hurt like tho
deuce.'
" It was a study to watch the faco of my
friend, tlie Captain. He looked from the
boots to tho man's face while ho was telling_
tbe story, and when tt wu finished, he ex*'
claimed: 'Well, I'll be dashed if you
aren't wearing my boots!' Explanations ■
and drinks were in order."
AN ARTFUL DODGE.
How Two Strangers Mad* Enough Money
to Pay for Tliolr Next Mf-iil.
A seedy-looking man entered an uptown
bar-room tho other evening, snys Mr.
Grundy. In his band he carried a hand-
somo Malacca walking-cane, with a heavy
oxidized silver head. " Excuse me, gentlemen," ho said, as he approached a number
of well-dressed men standing at the
bar, "but do any of" you wish to
buy a tino stick.' TMb is a remnant of
other days, when I wu happy and rich,"
and he choked down a huge sob. "I
wouldn't think of selling this little relic if
I wasn't in need of bread, The pawnbroker
around the corner offered me fifty cents on
it, but that isn't enough for my immediate
wants. Perhaps one of' you gentlemen
would like to have it for two dollars and a
half l"
The cano was handed around, and a man
who seemed interested in the unfortunate
bought it from him for two dollars.'
While tbe men were discussing the bargain their friend had made a stranger entered. Ho was of fine appearance, gentlemanly bearing, .and looked like a wealthy
clubman. After taking a drink lie walked
up and down the room a few times. At
last, as ho casually approached the group
atthe bar bo suddenly started back, then
hurried forward ahd grasped tho cane.
"Why, why," he ejaoulatcd, m surprise,
"I never thought I should see this ugnin."
Tiic man who had just bought {-lie -cane
turned around In amazement when he saw
tbo stranger lay hands on his property.
"What do you mean, slrl" said'he; "that's
my stick."
You muat be laboring under a delusion,
my- dear sir," replied the courteous stranger
ina wonderfully suavo tone of voico "I
would know this cane In a thousand and
couldn't be mistaken. My friend,TomOchil-'
trce, brought ft from London tho lust time
ho wus there nnd presented it to. ine. I
wouldn't have lost it/or nil the world I con
prove it Is my property, for by touching
this spring tbe head opens, aud discloses a
match-safe."
It was just as the stranger described.
The man who had paid tbe two do! lore looked
lather, crestfallen as he explained, how tbo
stick had come Into his possession.
i y Wus tho fellow wbo sold it to you a tall,
spare, semi-genteel chap!" uked the
stranger,
"Yes," replied the man.
"Just as I thought," responded the stranger, t'l employed that fellow u my valet
just out of charity, and this is tbo way he
has repaid, mo. I'm awfully muoh obliged to
you for aiding me tn recovering tho cane,"
and. the handsome stranger bowed- himself
out-   l
Tho stranger metthosccdy-looliing man
around tho corner and they whacked up the
two dollars.      ■>'
SUPERFLUOUS  HAIR,
How Chicago Society Ladles Bave Theli
Whltkari Fulled.
Few, perhaps, realize the., expense and
discomfort tbat society ladles incur in tko
intercut of good looks. Tlio mortilkaUmi
and mental torture endured by nbello or
comely matron with incipient side-wliisltera
or a well-defined mustache can never be-
fully comprehended except from experience. What will ahe not do to gat rid of
tho disfigurement! Said a State street
physician, who iu no wise poses as a
"supcrliuous-halr extractor," to a Chicago
Ntm reporter:
"I hove regularly from twelve to* fifteen
ladies who nro undergoing treatment, coining every other day for from two to threo
mouths, according to the sfxeaf the beard
be extracted. They aro the most patient
and persistent patrons a physician has, and,
as a rule, the best paying. [ You see, we
never turn away a slok person, even though
ho have littlo or no money, but theso other
eases aredlfferent and we tuck on the price.
Personal vanity is what makes ladies piiy
from fifty dollars to five ihubdred dollars
for a smooth face.
" The process now most in vogue Is electrical. Mechanical electricity won't do; a
chemical current is necessary. Tho modus
operandi is to apply tbo negative pole of the
battery to the root of tho hair, having the
?itient hold the positive pole In her hand,
he hair cell is decomposed in about the
time you can count fifteen, and can then ho
lifted out without pain, If the positive polo
wero, applied to tho hair tht sola about iba
cell would bo disooterWi thrhlng dark
brown .or black-a permanent disfigure
ment We always favor the ladiw.by deadening the seuBlbillty of the skin with- ether
beforo operating, so that tho process Is
practically painless.
" You can readily understand that even
then Itls a big undertaking. Every hair has
to be removed separately, and tt takes
about an hour to remove a dozen. The pa.
tlent usually comes every other day - for a
slttingof an hour or two. We have to tulce
out a hair here and a hair .there, partly for
the sake of tbo lady's looks and partly to
avoid local inflammation: It is pleasing lo
note tho patient's manifest delight assho
gradually loses her hirsute appearance, nnd
becomes, us sho terms it, 'less m,ascu line.'
I know of one. lady wbo for three cousceu
live years went to ber physician regularly
tohavoadosen or two hairs removed at a
Bitting, und her face is-now. u-smut tins,
she could .desire, since no scar Is left by
tho .process. Birth-marks in, the form of
discolored blotches are removed in tho
same way that Buperfttious hairs aro extracted."'   _*; '

. Thew lm not boeo a case of nny
kind before the polico magistrate this
week, aud only two "drunks" wore up
for correction last wook. Westminster
.has always' been a rather uncomfortable plaoe for bad characters, but during tne last few months these disreput-

disheartened by the vigil-moo of the
police, and have left in twos and threes

High Water.
Reports from Chilliwack say the
water iu the Fraser rose 12 inches, on
Tuesday, at that -point This is nn
evidence of mild weather in the interior and the thawing of the snow on
tho mountains. The usual driftwood,
which accompanies high water, was
observed passing down the river today, and tho water was vory muddy.
There is a great possibility that the
usual Juno high water will bo of much
•smaller volume than for many yeara,

The regular semi-monthly meeting
of tho council of the board of trade
was held yoatcrday afternoon. Among
other businoss the secretary was instructed to telegraph Mr. Chisholm
asking him to strongly urge upon the
government the necessity of having
the dredging dono in Westminster harbor before tho high water in June. It
is to be hoped ftfr. Chisholm will be
successful in his application, as the
shipping interests of the city will suffer greatly if tho work is allowed to
stand over until after high water.
A loitragconi Act.
Word was brought down by tho
steamer Rustier of a very courageous
act performed at BlanoyV camp on
Gortcz Island. It Booms that tl logger
named C. W. Birdaell, who was employed in making up a boom of logs
was carrying about 80 poundB of
chains over his shoulder when ho fell
off the boom into the water which nt
that point was about 20 feet deep. The
weight of the chaina immediately carried Birdaell to the bottom and despito
his utmost efforts he could not get free
from them. Mr. Fred Childs, who
witnessed tho accident and knowing
the predicament in whioh his companion was placed, dove to the bottom
and unhooked thcchains,removed them
from Birdaell and brought him to tho
surface, thus saving Iub lifo. The act
was certainly one of tho moat courageous that haa boen performed in the
provinco, iw fow indeed would venture
within reach of a drowning man and
remove a heavy chain.-—JfaiMimo Free

vessel into English Bay where she lay
at anchor for 24 hours. Captain McAllister brought the vessel across the
bar at three quarters fiood tide* taking
frequent soundings during the cross*
ing. The shallowest water found was
*H fathoma or 27 foot; and Captain McAllister says he is fully
confident that any merchant vessel in theso waters can be brought safely into Westminster, and he is willing
to risk his roputation on it. The gallant captain received many handshakes
from numerous old friends who assembled on tho Royal City Mills
wharf to Bee the Malay docked.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Fnrncll anil Pigott.
Editor Columbian.—Yon will please
allow mc to make a few remarks on a correspondence to tho JWirs dated 4th
March, and signed "Subscriber." The
writer seems very much displeased with
tho tone of tho World on tlio two articles
ancut Parnell and Cardinal Newman.
And, although the commission has failed
to convict anybody, but, on tho contrary,
exposes a deep plot to ruin the character
of Mv. Parnell and others, yet "Sub*
scriber" ia not satisfied with the result ot
the commission, and scorns disappointed
and chagrined to find that Parnell Ib
not in irons in somo of the dungeons prepared for political offenders. "Subscriber" is very much like a citizen of
the Hoyitl burgh who maintains that
Parnell's friends must have bribed Pigott
to commit suicide.
