THAT INTERESTING TRIAL.
London, Oct. 18.—Nearly 200 ad-
itional policemen arrivod at Marybor*
ough from Dublin this morning, and
though the popular excitement'continued, the court proceeded with tho
work of selecting a jury to try Father
McFadden and his associates for the
murder of Police Inspector Marlin in
February last. The oourt room was
filled wilh police, and the indignant parishioners of Father McFadden, whose
violence yesterday compelled the court
to adjourn, were excluded. The main
object of tbe Crown attorney appears
to be to blacken the oharactor of tbe ao*
cused priest and to destroy hiB popularity with his people. An admission
made to-day by one of tho Crown witnesses, a police official, who took part
in the fighting in whioh the police inspector lost his life, is regarded as of
the highest importance by the counsel
for the defence. This man admitted
that beforo Martin was strack at all, he
saw Father McFadden with blood run*
ning down his face, evidently from a
wound in the head.
Cariboo Waattt.
British Columbia furnishes a protty
good illustration of the wages question
as raised in tho tariff interest In
18G1 the gold mining excitement was
at its height. At Cariboo that year
carpenters wore paid $16 a day and
laborers $22 a day. It was high pay,
tho result entirely of the natural obstruction—rit*., the abience of roadi—
to tho entrance of outside labor into
tho country. But the agenoy that put
up the rato of wages also iucrcased
the cost of living. A meal cost 92.50,
Flour, bacon and sugar were 92.50 per
pound. A shovel or a pick cost $14,
a pair of boots $36, and an ordinary
cooking stove $350. It ia a question
whether $16 a day at Cariboo at that
timo was not pooler pay than $1.50 at

The Alert Amove.
Shortly after noon yesterday, Mr.
Thos. Earle received the following
telegram from Nanaimo, concerning
a mishap to the Alert Bay Canning
Co.'s now steamer Alert at a point
about five miles from the coal city.
"Alert ashore at Dod'a narrows. Soow
ooal laden filled and sank," Immediately upon receipt of tho despatch
the steamer Yosemite, Capt. Jagers in
command, was aent to the rescue, and
has not yet returned. The meagre information furnished by the telegram
contains nothing in regard to the injuries, if any, received by the steamer.
"Dod's narrows" is a small and vory
treacherous channel lying between
Gabriola and Vancouver Islands. It
is supposed tho scow, a very large ono,
carrying 200 tons of coal, became unmanageable in the strong current, and
swung the steamer on the rooky shore.

A writer in search of a subject
would lind ouo capable of filling a
volume in the rotation of art to advertising.   Advertising to bo a success must be systematic uud persistent.     Without,   thirfif!  i|imlili(--*
great benefit is hardly tu be looked
for.   In addition to this, if the advertiser   can   bit   upon n striking
m ean a of tuHinit lho public whut he
hua to sell, bo much llio better, but
this is not an essential, as witness
the cuso of Hollo-way's pills.   Tiie
success of thnt pntent medicine is
due, wo may say, entirely to persistent nnd methodical advertising,
in season and out; but, nt nny rato
until recently, tho announcements
io the papers were of tho ordinary
kind, and thero was no attempt at
unusual display in tho wny of cuts.
But tho advertisement was always
there, hence its success, for a person
might  lie  sure that ns soon as he
took up his morning or evening paper he would find the announcement
of Holloway's Pills staring him in
the fa.-e.   When tho persistent advertiser sails in the aid of art, he is
doubly itemed, and almost forces the
public to look at what ho has to inform f hem, and in tho majority of
cases ho man who leaks onco looks
a second, and perhaps many, timos,
and tl.o ond of it is that he buys the
article advertised "to son if there is
any g--oii in it anyway."   It is only
of lat > years that the master hands
of iir t rate artists hnve been called
into r (pisition to aid tbe merchant
in bringing .hie goods prominently
before tiie public •■yet; but iti is astonishing with   what   rapidity the
idea   haa spread.     When Messrs.
Pears commissioned Mr. Marks, It,
A., to paint hia well known picture
■'Oleai.Iittoss i-- next to Godliness,"
and then placarded overy hoarding
in London with excellent reproductions tf tho work, peoplo shook their
heads ind said that fools and their
money were soon parted.  Sinco then
the same firm have had no reason
to regret thoir venture, but or. the
contrary, so successful was it .that
again and again have some of the
greatest living painters and sculptor."' been called into requisition to
assist them.   Thousands of tine stewl
engravings  of   various notabilities
havo been scattered  broadcast, and
Mi*. Marks'picture 1ms been followed
by others, afc immense cost, including Sir Everett Millius' portrait of
hi.*   li tie   grandson, a fac simile of
which is at the present timo to be
seen ir- every drug store in tho city.
What this one firm  bus done on a
large settle, others bave dono in a
les-i degree, until it 1ms becomo the
proper thing for artists of repute to
lyssif-ti tho advertiser.   Only rocently,
at grealj cost, another soap maker
bought n picture from the walls of
Burl in'it'll i House, and  lias issued
the   engraving   under the title of
"So-clean," thus furnishing us with
a, lirst -class  work of   art   by Mr.
Frith. Wo may mgard this departure
as being a decided stop forward in
the work of education, for few mon
can long be familiar with good pictures without being tho better for it,
and the assertion that "(lowers and
pictures are the most humanizing
thinga men can possess," although
perhaps a Mile exaggerated, is not
without truth.
is drawn by lhe Almighty- ft is,
therefore, tt sin to break through it.
To prevent the break social relations
must bo avoided, and to avoid social
relations tho colored people must not
be given a footing equal to tbat of
tho whites iu the churoh. Tliis
gentleman must have been one of
the pro slavery preachers who found
in the Bible not only a justification
of the restriction of human liberty
aud tlio traffic in humanity, but
positive commands that tho colored
race be enslaved. In the Southern
Congregational church, also, tho
race question is prominent. In
Georgia the church is divided into
two Congregational bodies. One is
called the Congregational association, and is colored; the other is
called the Congregational conference,
and is whito. The former is ready
to unite with tho latter; but the
conference declines union with the'
ohurch of the ostruciBed race. An
eastern cotemporary, commenting on
this state of things, says: "In all
tha ohurohes concerned the chief
cause of lhe trouble isprejudico, an
unchristian feeling born of tbe wicked noss that made the colored people
involuntary servants. It will take
years to overcome this intolerance.
Woro the good Christians who entertain it to look back to tho ancient
churoh and to remember that some
of its lending men—among thorn, in
all probability, Athauasius—wero
colored, they would feel that, insido
the churuh nt least, thoy have something in common with the other
nice.'
One of the ticklish  questions to
be settled by the Episcopal convention now in session at New York is
thn position of the colored race in
tho church.    In two dioceses colored
represent nti vps havo been declared
ineligible   to  sit in synod.   It is
hardly necessary to   sny that  the
diocesoi iu question aro in tho Soutli.
A low weeks ago tho colored Episcopalians mot nud deoided to osk
the cluing convention  to declaro
whether or not these dioceses had
acted j roperly.  'vis it in accordance
with   tho doctrines taught by thu
church," nuked  tho colored clergymen, '-l.hh.ti when   men   have onco
been admitted  to the sacred ministry or communion of tho church any
restriction should  be made in the
spiritual   or   legislative rights of a
colored   man   which would not bo
made  in thoso of  a white man 1"
Tho Episcnpnl churoh. however, is
not alone in its color line difficulty.
Nothing   but   the   color   question
keeps tho Presbytorian churches of
the North and .South nsimder.   The
Northern church favors tho recognition of both races.   Tho Southern
ohuroh, .on-the other hand, will only
receive colored ministers provisionally, or until an independent colored
Presbytorian churoh bo organized.
No colored man has complete legislative rights in tho Southern church,
and Rev. Dr. Vaughan, o( "Virginia,
explains   why.     fto says:   "The
number of the colored poople in tho
South will give them the constitutional control of   the property and
the  constitutional  government of
the ohuroh if organized on the principle of a mixed church.    It will
also be followed by a certain amount
of social mixture, which in lapse of
timo will bo followed  by a mixture
of blood, with all its degrading and
disastrous consequences,"   Another
clergyman argues that the color line
SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.

Japan has 31 schools of medicine,
ono of dentistry, and two of veteri
nary surgery. The University of
Tokio graduates an averago of 100
medical students yearly. Tokio
alone has over !i0 hospitals and numerous active medical societies,
At the late British Association
meeting, Mr. J. A. London called
attention to fibrous peat as a material for brown paper, wrappers and
millboards, stating that live mills
aro now usjng it. The cost of the
fiber is 50 per cent. loss than wood,
and it is very much stronger.
M. Ortolan states that the proportion of nicotine in tobacco is less
when the stalks grow elose together
and tho leaves ure numerous ; and
that is the reason why the Frenchman poisons himself more than the
German, who is a greater smoker.
Tlie number of leaves to the stalk-
is limited by government in France,
and French tobacco has as much as
six per cent, of nicotine.

An Ancient Monster,—-According l. Nilsson, the great Greenland
or right whale (Baleur mysticetus, L)
weighs over 100 tons— as much as
88 elephants or 440 bears. Yet tho
remains of the fossil whale (/S.prlsca)
found ou the coast of Ystiul, in the
Baltic, indicate that the ancient
animal, although not moro than 60
or 60 feet long must have had
body 27 times larger and heavier
than that of the common or right
whale.
A Table Lighted uy a Fountain.—The novel display at the
Paris Exhibition is likely to lead
decorators to make much use of
luminous fountains—that is fountains lighted up in various colors by
electric lamps conccealed beneath.
The Grand Hotel at Paris has already adopted the idea ; snd now an
ingenious amateur in scienco, M.
Gaston Menier, who had already
distinguished himself by making an
electric railway serve at table in the
place of waiters, has placed a beautifully illumined fountain, surrounded
by flowers, in tho centro of his dining table.
Spontaneous Combustion of the
Body.—Dr. G. Archie Stockwell, Jf.
rA, S,, states that, within a period cf
two centuries, some 70 cases of
mtacaum ebriosug—-the disease of
so-called spontaneous human combustion—-havo beon reported in medical
and medico-legal literature. Many
circumstances are connected with
theso cases tlmt aro mysterious,, to
say the least, und unliko thoso of
ordinary accidents by firo. This
combustion, for instance, is chiefly
confined to the fluid repositories of
the body—abdomen, ohost and
head ; the clothing, instead of being
destroyed, suffers only an immediate
contact with the fire; and tho residue of cntacusis is of peculiar character, resembling tho product of distillation rather than of direct combustion. In most cases the evidenco
points rather to oxtornal than to
spontaneous ignition, tho body being
in fi combustible state. The acoum
hited crises—including several within the last five or six yoars—have
served to establish beyond cavil tho
fact that an abnormal combustibility of the body may supervene as
the result of morbid changes, but
this does not necessarily imply spontaneity or even ordinary ignitabil-
ity, It has been shown that mere
saturation with alcohol docs not
mako the animal tissues inflammable.
Of the many othor explanations that
have been suggested, that of tho
generation of inflammable hydrogen
compounds by decomposition—which
has been known to commence before
doath—seems to bo supported by
considerable evidonco.
THE RAT'S WORST FOE.

Bomo queer atorlcs of lho relations of tho

derision of a retired rat-catcher—or rather

calling in all tho largo cities of the country

by tho Government to clean out thu United
S,talcs Treasury building at Washington.
"X see," ho said, iu telling his version of
ferret vs. rat, "that some ono has tt iscovored
tliat a rat won't light a ferret, and that tho
moment tho ferret gets closo to him tho rat
gives up. Thai's n queer yarn for a trulh-
tollcsr. Como along and Fillet you seo for
yourself. I'm out of tho businoss, but 1 havo
a couplo of terrets, and I've an ocoommo
dating friend who'll lend mo a Couple of
rats."
Tho two went to tho cx-rat-catehof's residence, whoro ho brought from tlio cellar n
cage similar to thoso in which rat**e:itoi*mi-
uators carry their ferrets. Looking through
tho holes in tho top of it nil tlmt could bo
scon wore two pairs of smal.1 eye-*, a brilliant, baloful green. Thoybolongcd to two
brown ferrets of English stock, and were
said by their owner to bo of a superior breed.
Wrapping tho box in n pieco of paper for
appearance's sake, ami punching Somo holes
in it for tho animals' sake, the ox-professor
set out with tho reporter for tho rosidonco
of tho friend who had rata in stock. On tho
way to tho thoaterof oxporiineut tho man
learned hi forrcts and rats doscauted on lho
miiiutiteof his calling.
"You know a rat doesn't havo to bo
langlit thut a ferret is his natural enemy,
and lie has a mortal terror of tho littlo
beast. If thero is a ferret within a rod of a
swarm of rats they'll all clear out and keep
going for a milo to get to other quarters.
Yon must know, too, that whilo a ferret's
botiy looks big his hoad is the biggest part
of liim, aud wherever his head can go the
rest can follow easily.
"A ferret doesn't often catch a rat inn
run. for tlie rat is fust and tho ferret very
slow. Sometimes they do catch ono, and
then it's hard work to got that ferret back.
Ho'll loud up on tho rat's blood nud go loafing around, instead of attending to business;
stay in there, perhaps, to do some hunting
on Ins own account. I'vo lost ferrets in
stables, whoro they hnvo wandered on into
side runs, caught n rat or two, and laid out
ft future for themselves on tlio premises.
Sometimes a ferret will como to his owner's
whistlo, but generally wo havo to keep a
sharp lookout nnd pick them up ns thoy follow tho rata out oftho holo. Well, horo wo
are."
Tiie two men entered a sporting resort; it
was In the Kensington district. Tlio ratter
remarked: "Hilly, I want to show this gon-
tlL-iinui an experiment; lot's have tho littlo
room." The little room .wns an apartment
olglit feet long nnd six feet wide, and utterly without furniture. The window-Bills
wero high and broad, nnd theso woro used
for seats;    *
Tiio proprietor of tho establishment ab.
sealed himsolf a minuto or two and returned wilh a largo rat in his leatlior*
gloved hand and when tho door was closed
iropped it squeaking on the lloor. From a.
box on hia Jap tlio ratter, also with his
right hand In a leather glovo, drew a ferret
ami dropped it on tho lloor. Tho three
watchers of tho impending tragedy wore
Bitting witli tholr feet swinging u foot uud
a huli from the bare, unincumbered floor.
When the rat had lirst beon released it
had scampered around lho wainscoting,
oklug for escape, hut when the ferret wns
'opped it stopped a mouiciitiia if in consternation end then mndo for the corner
furthest from tho enemy. As the ferret
advanced, stealthily, his neck stretched
and his noso protruding, the rat mado a
bvoalc arid f*ut, fai-tbur away, Ttio ferret
had some difficulty in following tho rapid
motions of tlio rat on account of tho room
being light- but ho kept tlio trailing process
upuntll within four or fivo minutes from
tho start tlio rat was In a corner uml whichever way ho turned tho ferret turuotl, too,
to head him off. This process was kept up
until not moro than ft foot separated lliem,
and then tho rat deliberately raised ou Us
haunches and prepared to light. Tho ferret
drew nearer until thoy woro eix inches
apart, and, rearing up ns the other had,
thero was nn actual sparring match. Tho
ferret mado a plunge for tho rat's jugular,
but the latter dodged aud bit back viciously.
In an instant the two fought ferociously,
the rat malting no attempt at escape, but
fighting for dehr lifo. They separated and
iigj-m on tholr hnunchoB had another sparring bout. Tlio rat left nn opening, and,
quick as an expert boxer, the ferret took
advantage of it, made a rattlesnake sort of
dart with his headj and seized tlio rat just
behind tho car. There wan n, livoiy wrest-

To tho visitor who ij-. seeking resemblances

Tho now Senators havo displaced sovoral

A MODERN LEANDER.
Uuiquo But Rather Damp Court*
ship of a Romantic Fair.
A fow ovcntags ago, as I was walking
down Wall Btreet to tuke tlio ferry for
Brooklyn, my attontion was arroBtod by a
young gontloman going tlio Bamo wny on
lite ot Iter sido of that tlioroughf uro. His faco
wns ImtulBomorthan common, his stop wub
as graceful as a young fawn's, his hair,
which was long and inclined to curl, gnrc
lilm vnllioraplcturowiuolook. Ho woro n
suit of darlr blue which iP,tod him perfectly.
Uut theso woro not tho things whioh caused
mo to keep my oyos flxod upon him. It
Unshod upon mo as I sighted him that his
(Itti'lt bluo Bult concealed atiother of an unusual sort. Thoro wus that ln tho way ho
curried himself, notwithstanding hia spriug-
in:*sup, which suggested somo concealed
panoply. I aonjootured tlmt tto might ho
bound for Brooklyn to attend a luustjuorado
party, and that having thrown aside* his
bluo suit in tbo dressing-room ho would
appear in tho drawing-room as Richard
Ctcur do Lion or ono of tho ltulghts that
fought nt Aglneourt. Whilo I WOB thus
-peculating tho young fellow and I reached
lho wharf. But ho didn't outer tho terry*
house; ho turned nnd walked up tho dock.
Ho I dismissed him from my mind, bought
my ticket and wont on tho boat. Protty
r.oon thoro was a commotion. Bomothlng
in tho water nrfoated tho attention of
pn-staengors whoso oyos woro sharp. Gazing whoro thoy pointed I beheld tho young
fellow from whom I had parted a fow
minutes previous lustily swimming out in
tho direction of Brooklyn, Ho was perhaps
ono liundrcd foot north of tho ferry-boat;
lio took a long, slow stroke and it must
huvo boon evident oven to the dullest ob-
noi'ver that ho would huvo resented any as-
r i..tuucc. 1 noticed thnt tho mon who wore
in charge of tho boat seemed to tako but a
htiiguid interest in tho Bpeotaclo, Ono
mi'jht luivo thought that a man swimming
from Now York to Brooklyn was an everyday sight to thom. Addressing the ono
who Bcemed tho best naturcd, I inquired If
ho knew wbo tbo swimmer was, if bo bad
ovor Been him boforo)
"No," was tho reply, "I don't know who
ho is, but j for tho lust fow weeks I've
several times seen him going to Brooklyn
that way."
"Perhaps," I suggested, "ho is a professional diver whoso work takoB him into tho
Nortb rivor but whoao homo is Jn Brooklyn.
By swimming across tho Hast rivor ho
sovca fcrringo." ■
"Ho ain't no divor," remarked my companion, In decided tones. "If you got a
closo look at hlm you'll soo that ho looks a
blanked sight moro liko 6, professional
dude."
By this time tho boat was entering tho
slip on the Brooklyn Bide. My curiosity
having becomo thoroughly aroused, I determined, If possible, to find out who tho
swimmer was and what made him do it.
Accordingly, leaving tho boat, I took my
position on tho HcightBJust abovo thofor-
ry-iiinding waiting for tho bold swimmer
to land. When I reached tho Heights ho
seemed to be about -half way over, Presently tho Bhadowa gathorod over the river
and X lost sight of him. I bad gono to Brooklyn for two objects, ono of business for tho
Tribune and ono of pleasure for myself.
Having transacted bybuainossl hastouod
to a reception which was being given at tho
houso of ono of my old frionds on avenue. I hadn't boen long in tho houso boforo
I noticed au immensely protty girl. And
when I glanced enviously into tho faco of
tho young fellow upon whoso arm aho was
lightly leaning, Ifiaw, to my amazement, that
ho was'tho swimmer whom I had lately loft
in tho Eostrivor. Naturally, I lost no timo
in getting to my hostess to Hud out who this
mysterious mormau was, and why ho did It,
and ull about it.
Tho particulars which Mrs. •— Imparted
to me woro so novel and interesting that
I urged hor to allow mo to print thom. At
lirst -tho stoutly demurred, but finally consented on my agreeing to suppress names,
'rids Is substantially what she told mo; I
give her own lauguago, as far as I can recall It;
"The young man'_ name la Wchard —.
Ho livos on Madison avenuo, Now York. He
graduated at ■ • College, class of 183*1-.
If you aro familiar with boating matters,
you will recollect that ho pulled the stroke
oar In tbe crew of that year. Hia fondnosa
for all sorts of athletic sports would seem
to bo as great to-day as it ovor was. Last
summer ho mot tho young lady wilh whom
you saw him this ovening, Novor mind hor
name—wo'll call hor Juliet. Hor fathor
was at ono timo profossor of Persian litcraturo in an English college, and I am told
was essentially a dreamer and a mystic.
Her mother, tho daughter of a famous prima
douna, waa born in Prance, within sight of
the Bouon Cathedral.
"Juliet, boysoir, was born at Patmoo.
Prom bis earliest youth bor father had
yearned for tho opportunity of visiting tho
island who. con tho apostlo bad had his
sublimo and magnificont vision. His imagination kindled whoncvor he thought of tko
island and tlio first year or two of his married life ho spent cruising about tho Grecian
Archipelago, with headquarters at PatmoB,
imiong the simple fishermen.
' 'Perhaps it is not so Btrango, considering
her parentage and her birthplace, that tho
girl should be such „ romantic creature.
Of courso all nico girls aro moro or loss romantic, but Juliet has as positive a passion
for romance ns—well, ub Edison has for
scientific discovery. -.-;•
"Her mother bas beon a widow for a
numbor of years, and it was while mothor
and daughter wore summering on Capo
Ann, near Pigeon Cove, last summer, that
Richard becamo acquainted with them. He
fell in lovo with Juliet—all tho young mon
who wero on tbo Capo that season woro
wild about ber. But it was by no means bo
certain that Juliet loved Richard. Ho must
have looked romantic enough, to bo suro,
with his brilliant eyes and his long hair,
Uut Hit-hard is not what might bo called a
rcmautio talker; hia conversation looks
frescoes and his profession (ho is a lawyer)
is not at all BuggOBtlvo of romance, I have
sometimes suspected that Richard might
havo won hor directly after meeting ber
had ha hired a vessel and borne hor forcibly
away from Cape Ann without stopping to
ask hor own or her mother's opinion of suoh
proseeding. Of courso after the vessel
had got well under way bo wuuld have
fall*' i othor foot ond sworn that tt was the
mip t of hor fair beauty that mado bim do
it, and tbat ho would proceed to
pluugo a dagger lu his heart and jump
o.li nonrdif sbo did not consent to allow
bim. to mako for tbo nearestport and marry
hor. But bo didn't perform this romantic
coup d'etat and bo didn't get hor. How-
ovor, none of tho otber fellows got ber. In
Be.-, i ember sho returned to Brooklyn, and
ho to Now York. Ho saw a good deal of
bev during tbe fall and winter, and I have
good reason for believing that tbo more he
saw her tho moro surely ho became convinced that sho was his fate, and tbat he
could uot win hor In any conventional way,
But just what todo ho couldn't think. He
was a good deal puzzled, but' by no means
hopeless. Ho realized tbat sho muBt know
* that ho lovod hor and tho faet that suoh
knowledge did not induce her to rebuff blm
ho interpreted In his favor. It seemed as
clear as it bad boon at Cape Ann that no
man was preferred beforo him.
11 Woll, suoh wero tho circumstances when,
ono ovening In tho flrst week ln May, ho
oamo ovor from Now Yorkand accompanied
ner to a mooting of a reading and dramatic
elub. Brooklyn has a numbor of such organizations, you know. During the ovonlug
Juliet was asked to rood something, and
conoontod, of ter a littlo urging, to do so. A
voiumo of Hood lay on tho tablo bosido hor,
Bho is a beautiful reader, ond gavo tlio
poem which sbo selected with inimitable
spirit. I had tho ploasuraof listonlng to hor
und wasobarmod. Boinganowspapcrman,
nnd newspaper mon knowing overy thing,
you aro doubtlqaa familiar with tlie poem.
Itls tho soliloquy of a discontented damsel,
who has discovered, or thinks sho has dis-
- iv- ml, that romanco has vanished from
the on rl h, Evory verso, and thoro area
gootl many of tbem, ends with hor sigh:
There's no romanco fn thatl
As Juliet wns rending it occurred to Richard
that the poom waa meant for hlm, Boforo
Bho had finished a dazzling pU*m of winning
her Hashed upon him, and tho more Uc
thought it over the batter it pleased him.
So nt ho bade Juliot adieu that evening he
laid to her: 'Miss-—, I thoroughly ap-
prove of Iho sentiments of tho poem wliich
you road, und I havo determined to do what
I enn, in my own poor way, to revive tho
spirit of romanco. Hereafter, when you
permit mo the honor of coming to seo you, I
-hall uso neither tho conventional ferryboat nor tho prosaic bridgo. I shall cross
I lie Eaat river an Leaudor used to oroBS tlie
Hellespont wlion ho wentoolllngupon Hero.1
"li Juliet had not been do thoroughly enamored ol romanco this spoocb of Richard's
must havo. struck her as just a shado
funny. An it wan Bho was Immensely do-
Ugbtod.
"'Howperfectly Jovolyl1 sho exclaimed
when Richard had unfolded his now
nohomo of romantic, If not rapid transit.
'Lcauder has always boen ono of my
heroes. Hew truo aad strong must havo
been his lovo for Hero to Inspiro him for
iior unite to bravo tho mad currents oftho
Collcspont night aftor night. You mti3t
admit. Mr,—, that tbo figure which that
iIauntlc-,3 youth prosonts to ono's fancy is
Infinitely moro winning than that of tlto
modorn young gentleman who is transported to his lady-lovo hanging to tho i-tra*)
of a car or crushed in tbo motley crowd of a
ferryboat.' \
"'1 don't believo,' Richard replied,'that
LouiuIct over would havo been equal to tha
feat if ho hadn't beon nuro that Horo cared
for blm.' You mny well bollovo tliuro was
alightinRiclmrd'a oyos os ho spuhoihat
waa not tobe mistaken. It was as though ho
had declared, 'if you don't lovo mo or won't
lovo nm, Juliot, then I shall only be ablo to
drown ita 1 como swimming to you through
thu East -.'Ivor. But if you lovo mo the
swimming of a ciozon ICast rivers to reach
your sida v.-ould bo an easy task.'
"'Of eoui'flO Horo cared for hlm,' answered Juliot, with her oyos firmly (ixod on
tho chandelier over their beads. 'Nono but
tho bravo deserve tho fair, aud I imagine
that thoy generally get their deserts,' Thon
hor oyes oamo down from tho chandelier
and mot his a moment. And ilred by thoir
tender glauccs 1 am suro that Richard folt
onualto swimming tho ontiro thrco-quar-
torB of tho earth's nurfaco, whlcjt, if I ro-
mombor my geography correctly, is all
water. And so you understand why It happened that you saw my young friend in tho
East river this evening. Sinco tbo Ilth of
May, whon ho had this conversation with
Juliot, ho has como ovor to soo hor frequently and ovory timo ho has swum ovor
from New York, Hprhomois on the Heights
just over tho wator, not far from --■ street.
Aftor leaving tho rlvor a quick run of
throo minutes brings him to tho garden in
lho rear of tho houso, In tho garden ia a
bit of an arbor, which bo has appropriated
aud turned into a dressing-room. Heentors
it n dripping merman; ho emerges in oven-
lag dress, with a llower in his buttonhole,
and greets Juliet, whom ho finds walling
for him just beyond on tho broad pluzsa.
"Well, that's about all there Is to tell.
Her mothor nnd sho go abroad in tho fail
and our young friends, in accordance wltli
Juliet's conception of llio romaiitlo proprieties, uro to bo married at Romo next
Christinas l.vo. I asked hor tho other day
why slio chose that thne and place. She
replied lhat Italy wns tho land oT romance,
nud J-hat Rome wns tho Queen of Italy, nnd
that Christmas Evo was tho loveliest ovo in
tho calendar. Just now sho is wild about
falconry and Richard has proinlaod her to
dovoto a portion of their honeymoon to
teaching hor to hunt with a hawk, Thon,
of coiu'so, sho will have her portrait painted
withafalcon on ber wrist, Porkaps you rend
tho other day in tho Brooklyn Eagloauae-
counttiCa correspondence whiclnvus being
carried on by a Brooklyn belle and Iter Now
York lover by means of oawior-ptgooiifl, lio
names woro raontlonod, but I happen to
know that Juliet and Richard wero tho per.
Bona roferrcd to. Ho himsolf told mo Of lho
origin of tho corrospou donee. A fow woolts
ago, In courso of a fervent protest againat
tho prosaic, Juliot quoted to him a vctso
from that poem of Hood of which I npoko.
I think I can givo you tho linos, Lct'uBce:

"Tbo result was that Richard concluded
that instead of sending It by tbo post bo
would orgnnizo a romantic curricr-jilijcon
service."
Buch, iu substance, woro tho facts of this
Interesting opisodo of Now York and
Brooklyn life which I obtained from Mrs,
—, and which, wilh hor kind permission, are printed in tho Tribune. Naturally
I asked her how sha cumo to know so much
of tho affair, Bho replied that nho had
known both of theso young peoplo since
they woro children and that they wero ooti *

with a laugh, "I nm lilto Dean Swift's servant, I'm good at drawing inferences."--

THE SHARK'S   MAtJITS.
Tho Fish Is it Great Cimur.1 In tlto Pn--
(1110** Of l.ivili;.'   M(III.
Tho author of "Ou Bltio Water," a man
-vho had sailed mueh on tropical seaiiaaill'iiil
iinuy opportunities for studying the nature
md habits of fish, treats the common bo-
ief that the shark is a man-eater as n
•upcrslitlou, Man decs not have his dwelling In tho water, und lt Is only rarely thai,
by accident or design, ho exposon himself
o tho attacks of tho shark. It in not
ikely, therefore, that ho wuu intended lo
bo tho nalurnl and preferred food of tho
lish. Tlio writer referral lo nbovo says
that ho had never conversed with any one
who bad seen' a living man attacked by a
ilinrk. Ho gives an amusing account nf 'i
-nooting bctwoon a black sailor and a shark,
ivhioh mnkes it appear that this Hah Is a
groat coward in tho presence of man.
Ills ship, an English one, was lying iu
Bombay harbor. An enormous while Bhark
'ny plugglsbly on the surface cf the water
miy a fow feet from the ship's side. Tho,
rnilors were making sueh remarks ns "11 o's
.■■otitis oyo on ua for supper," aud when
this opinion wns doubted, thoy challenged
iho incredulous lo put a foot In tho water
within llio shark's reach.
A negro made a bet of a pound or tobacco
lint ho would jump into tho wator just an
Ito wns. Tlto bot wns talcett; uud, without
omovlng any of his clothing, tho man
jumped from tho rail plump upon lho monitor's bnck. Tho lish was largo onough to
have swallowed two men, but his fright
jvorcamo any longing for human llosh. The
inrrator Bays:
"I havo seldom soon any thing so scared
is that shark was; ho plunged off, half his
tody out of lho water at times, leaving a
.•iiko liko a paddle-boat behind him which
■ould bo traced for threo or four hundred
■ ards where ho dived, and nover showed
limsolf alongsldo our ship attain."
This Instanco would, porhaps.bo mot with
■ha objection thnt sharks show a prefer*
nico for whito mon to feed upon. Thin
lommon notion has been adoptod fromob-
■erving that the colored South Bealsluiid-
■ra spend much of their timo lu tho water,
wholly indiffcront to tho sharks which h wlm
iroiiiid litem. If tho shark is roally partial
'.o while victims, ho probably selects thom
from sight, not from tnsto.
Whon tho shark gets a tnsto of human

COLUM IIIA    STREKT,
IVcw Westminster, B. (\
Hryan O'Lynn had no toots for to wear,
So he came to Westminster to buy him a pair.
" I'll have one pair of thick ones and one pair of thin,
- If I can find J. Rousseau's," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He hunted the stores all along the main route,
Says he, "The right one I've not yet found out.
I want J. Rousseau—I'll buy only from him,
For he sells the cheapest," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He stepped a little west of McKenzie street,
He met Rousseau's sign—sure it was a great treat;
He lifted the latch, and Jim stood within.
" I've found it at last," says Bryan O'Lynn.
We showed him both Calf Boots, Kip and Cowhide,
The ones we praise mostly, without seams at the side.
Wc have Boots of all kinds, from Quebec and Berlin;
" Sure you have boots for the million," says Bryan O'Lynn.
lie bought him his boots, which of course were no trash,
He paid down the money, for wc sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "lie not taken in,
But buy from J. Rousseau," says Bryan O'Lynn.
" If there is a leak in the toe or side of your shoe,
Just take it to Rousseau, that's all you need do;
He will peg it or patch it just while you are in,
And the charge seems like nothing," says Bryan O'Lynn.

Tlie llnfcliery.
Tho hatchery is now receiving aud
storing salmon ova at the ruts vt half
a million per woek, but thi- number
will bo largely increased between now
and tho finish of stripping operations.
Tho number of ova in the hatchery at
present ia 1,750,000. Some difficulty
has boon experienced with lho high
water ou Harrison River, where tho
ova i3 scoured. A very Urge numbor
of fish entered lho traps but high water followed immediately afterwards,
Hooding tho enclosure and allowing
many of tho fish to oscape. Thoro are,
however, plenty of fish now in tho
traps to supply tho 7,000,000 ova
which it is the intention to hatch this
your. Mr. Mux Mowat is in charge of
tho stripping operntiona, nnd hopes to
finish his labors before the disagreeable
weather acta in.

Tho Methodist missionary board, tifc

whereas it bus come to tho knowledge
of this board that out of threo educational institutions established In British Columbia by tho Dominion government two have boon placed undor-tho
supervision of the Roman Catholic
church aud the other under tho Angl:
can, while the Methodist church, with
aa many Indiana undor ita cure aa tho
forui'r nnd fur moro than the latter,
has been ignored altogether, be it resolved that we enter a most earnest
protest at this action of tbe Indian department at Ottawa." After a little
discussion relative to tho facts of the
oaso tho motion carried without rlis-
pont.

The llynrlis* Uric trance.
Tho members of tho Hyack Fire
company uro exceedingly annoyed at
the action of the celebration committee
in reducing the nmount of the prizes,
claimed by them, from $475 to $250.
They cad much to any on this subject
on tlio stroots til-day, and many of the
members openly declared that the
whole company would resign nnd tho
city would bo left without a fire brigade in Icds than n week. Tliu public
feeling seems to bo that tho nmount
sot asido for tho firemen tit tho meeting Inst night was quito aullicient undor the circumstances, whon it is considered that no temna except the Hyacks entered for tho contests. If tlio
firemen can ahow that they have a
genuine grievance against tho committeo tho citizens will soo that they obtain ample justico, but it would bu
vory ill-advised under tho circumatan-
cea to resign beforo submitting thoir
case for publio consideration.

The team from tho N. W. R. A.,

Acr-m-dln-*; lo Agreement.
Some people, wo aro informed, have
questioned tho right, as woll as tho
propriety, of thu notion of the celebration committoe, lust night, in voting
tho sum of §200 to Mr. S. T. Mac*
kiutojh for hiB services as general secretary of the celebratiun committee,
and also for making a tmall appropriation to present a testimonial to Mr. J.
S. C. Fraaer, treasurer of the committoe. With respect to tho §200 paid to
Mr. Mackintosh, ns secretary, no fault
cnu bo found, as that was the Biliary
agreod upon when Llio appointment
wns mndo. For two months preceding
tho celebration a vast amount of work
hnd to bc dono to insure success, A
thoroughly good and efficient secretary, who should make the celebration
hia chiof business for the timo being,
was a necessity. That Mr. Mackintosh
proved himself all that could be desired
in that capacity, ia questioned by no
ono, and tho voting of tho compensation agreed upon for his services was
certainly perfectly in order, Mr.
Fruser, as treasurer of tho genoral
fund, devoted a great deal of time,
zeal and supererogatory service towards furthering tho bucccqs of the
colobration in many ways. Although
no salary wns attached to his office,
the testimonial voted laat night wns
well-earned and deserved.
Tbe Larsest leek.
Mr. Josh Curry, of Hnliburton Ht.,
brought to our sanctum specimens of
leeks grown by him in his garden.
They aro of immense si-*o, nnd would
make a Welshman smile all over his
faco. Tho plants aro 4j in length, the
whito part being over 12 inches. At
tho rout the bulb measured 10 inches
in circumference. Sovoral Welsh gentlemen who havo seen tho roots pronounce them much larger, firmer and
clearer than any they had Been in
Wales or nny other country. The leek
is regarded as a -national emblem of
Wnles, and is highly prized ns an article of food.—Free Press.
The Celebration Committee.
The mooting of the celebration com*
mitteo at tho city hall last night was
not largely attonded, nnd a numbor of
roporta thnt should hnvo boen handed
in failed to materialize, consequently
tho meeting only accomplished half its
object. Mayor Townaond occupied
the chair and reported verbally for the
executive aud reception committees,
stating that everything had been sutis-
factorilly carried out. Tho printing
committee reported having exceeded
tho amount of their appropriation by
a small sum. Tins was not considered a serious matter nnd tho report
passed. Tho procession committee
showed a surplus over oxponses, as
did also tho boating and sailing committee. The sports committeo alao
Eowed a small balance to tho good, but
tho muaio and dancing managers proclaimed a deficit, whicli wus occusioncd
by tho financial fail uro of the citizons'
ball. Tho horao ncing coin-
mittoo showed a hnnclsomo eiirolus,
whilo tho decoration committeo was
forced tn exceed tho nmount of its
appropriations. Tlio fireworks committee kept within tho nmount allotted
it, nnd, together with tbo foregoing roports, wna adopted. The billeting
committee's icport wns not considered
satisfactory and it was referred bnck.
The bill for tho erection of the judges'
stand, §02.00, woo ordered paid, ns
wna nlso the secretary's salary. A do-
ficit of 8291, in connection with tho
graud stand, was ordered paid. On
motion the grand stand was handed, /
over to tho city on the understanding
that tho clubs have freo uso of it when
matches are on. Tho firemen's tournament occasioned soveral hot disputes and u great many long speeches,
Tho matter wna finally disposed of by
tho passage of a motion granting tho
firemen $250, and ovon this amount
many thought Bhould not bo paid, owing to the fact that the contests wero
between the mon of tho same company; and they had decided to equally
divide the prizo money, irrespective of
winnora. The treasurer's roport, showing a small surplus, was read and
adoptod. It was the genoral opinion
that tho hard work performed by Mr,
Fraser, on bohalf of tho celebratiun,
wns deserving of recognition, and a
committee, consisting of Messrs.
Thompson, Eckstein, Grant, Mcintosh and Whyte, was appointed to
arrange for a presentation to tako
place on Tuesday evening noxt. After
passing a heaity voto of thanks to
Mayor Townaond for his efforts on behalf of thu celebratiun, the meeting
adjourned.
