A fossil tortoise found in the ait;
of Perpignan, in the Pyrenees, is
over four feet long and thirteen feet
in circumference, and is the largest
specimen in existence.
Frpm 100,000 to 150,000 infants
died yearly in France from hunger,
neglect, and like preventable
causes, and the evil is growing,
Tho (irst-year death-rate waa 16.9
per cent in 18.0-4., and is now 26
per cent
Since 1884 observations have
been made all over France for the
purpose of detecting any variations
in the level of the land. The northeastern part appears to be sinking
about an inch a year—a change that
must produce serious results in a
few centuries if it continues.
Transparent paper for supporting
the sensitive 61ms used for photographic negatives haa not been
entirely satisfactory. 'For several
years thin celluloid plates have been
tried, and Mr, Jno. Carbutt states
that during the past year these
havo been made a perfect lightweight substitute for plates of glass,
Abeard over 7J feet long is worn
by Louis Coulon" a mechanio 63
years old, living in Montlucon,
France. M. Coulon had to shave
when twelve years old, but soon
gave up tho razor, and at fourteen
was made conspicuous by a beard a
foot-long, He is less than 5i feet
tall, and coils his beard - round his
neok.
Sore throats may be prevented,
according to Mr. H. V.. Knaggs, by
the continuous wearing of from ten
to twenty threads of Berlin wool.
These should be kept around the
neck except during ablutions, and
left off gradually by removing one
thread daily. The remedy is supposed to act npon the ring of skin
as a slight counter irritant.
India-rubber is being tried for
paving streets in several German
towns. The first pavement of tho
kind was laid by Herro Ilusse, of
Linde, on the Ooethe Bridge, in
Hanover, in 1887. Tho material is
claimed to combine the elastricity
of rubber with the resistance of
stone, and to be perfectly noiseless,
unaffected by heat or cold, and less
slippery than asphslto.
State Weather BoREAtjs.—The
establishment of a weather service
in each State, to co-operate with the
National servico, is urged by Prof.
F. _.. Niplwr,- -Swh or_*anizations
could letter study local climate, and
could thoroughly distribute the
predictions required by local industries. In 1893 the telephone
will become publio property, when
every farm may bo put in communication with the country seat at
small expense,,.find may receive
weather intelligence promptly.
Prof. Nipher believes that this will
be dono, and that it can best be
dono through plans worked out by
Stato directors..
A Wail op Fiies.—Among fly-
pests, the Band*flios of the Egyptian
deserts ore described by a late writer
as taking the palm. This observer
passed Fort Tel-el*kebir on the day
after the battle there iii 1882; and
asserts that he was compelled to
force his way through a wall of flies
which was a mile long, ten yards
high, and forty yard, wide, with
"the flies so thickly massed that they
might be said to be riding ono on
top of the other and brushing each
other side by side." The blaok wall
covered the line of dead Egyptians.
The sound was deafening, and a
heavy pressure was felt on the
terrified pony whioh was with the
greatest difficult]* made to struggle
through the mass.
The Great Fossil Mammals. -
Some of the largest mammals known
to have existed «on the earth are
ranked by La Nature in the order
of their si_e as follows: 1. Z>.no-
therium gitjanteum of the upper
miocene of Attica. From the size
of a tibia or skin-bone that has been
found, it is estimated that this
animal must have attained a height
of 14 J feet at the shoulders and 16
feot at the top of the head. 2.
Elcphas anliamts of the quaternary
of Ute environs of Paris. A humerus of this animal indicates that it
must have reached 13 feet ut the
shoulders and 14J at the top of the
head. 3. fflephae meridionalis of
the upper pliocene of Durfort. The
largest entire skeleton of a fossil
mammal thus far known is one of
this animal in tho Paris Museum.
Hia 12J- feet in height at the
shoulder bones, 13} at the top of
the head, and 21 feet in length
from tho end of the tusks to (he
back of the pelvis. 4, Mastodon
Americamis of the quaternary of
the United States, 8. Bkphat
iirimigcnius (tho mammoth) of the
qunrternary of Siberia, and the
present elephants. The skeleton of
the famcua mammoth whose entire
carcass was found on the Lena in
17991s IU feet in height to the top
of the head, It is' not likely, is
added, that man has seen tha
dinotherium, but it is certain that
he has come (see to face with the
Bleiiluts anliquus and the mammoth.
In order to tight them, he had but
atone axes, and yet he conquered
tbem. This allows us to believe
that our ancestors of quarternary
times had spirit and courage.

fireman, he was badly bruised .and was
taken tothe hospital. Willing h-anii, are

DOMIKION r-KMAMBHT.
Ottawa, Feb.  1.—The house of
commons'adopted an address in reply
to the ipeech from tbe throne to-day.
Members of both sides of the house
listened for two hours and a half to
badinage and* an exchange of graceful
compliments,   Mr. It, White, M. P.,
for Uardwell, made an oxcellent speech
iu moving the adoption of the address.
He justified the action of the Dominion
government in reverting to tho treaty
of 1818, and said it had no other alternative in view of the rejection  by
the United State, senate of the fisheries treaty negotiated at Washington
last year.     Mr.  Whito, continuing
showed the vest possibilities of Canadian trade when the Dominion government oarried out its trans-Atlantic
and trans-Pacific  steamship  projects.
Hon. W, Laurier congratulated   Mr.
White upon hi. ablo speech and: went
ou to short that the policy of tho  Dominion government was one. of procrastination.     Sir   John Macdonald
sought to develop trade with the  Antipodes while he failed to knock nt the
door of our nearest neighbor.   If: protective duties were abandoned, Canada
would enjoy unprecedented prosperity.
He .thought the government hud presented a scanty bill of fare so far us
legislation was  concerned.   He  condemned what he called the arbitrary
and hostile conduct of Canadian officials in refusing to grant ordinary
privilege, to American fishing vessels
oompelled to seek shelter iu Canadian
ports.   Sir John Macdonald  warmly
replied, overhauling the Liberal leader
in a manner which brought down  the
house. . He never appeared in better
health, form and apirits.   He said the
confidence that tho people showed for
his party was the best evidence of the
soundness of his government and principles.   His speech throughout was
humorous.   He declined to sccept the
advice of the liberal leader, because if
he did so he would soon find himself
on the opposition benches.   The address iu reply to the speech was then
adopted.   The consideration of the
speech-in the senate wns postponed
until Monday.

BaUrday Uveal-*, 1-b. I, im.
One does not expect to find much
in tho ordinary "speech from the
throne," nor even so much in the
document  so ycleped  which   the
lieutenant-governor  reads   in   the
name and stead of Her Majesty, as
in   the  more    pretentious    affair
enounced by vice-royalty at Ottawa,
and one is not often disappointed.
The speech delivered hy his honor
Lieutenant-Governor    Nelson,    at
Victoria, on Thursday last, does not
■hook   one's preconceived notions
about suoh documents. As a review
of the past year it is admirable, but
as a forecast of what is likely to be
done at the session now in progress,
—well it is probably intended as r
sort of diplomatic and masterly concealment.   The review part of the
speech, however, brings before the
public notice a happy state of things
which might otherwise have escaped
particular attention, as the "public"
is a notoriously ungrateful animal,
and apt rather to find fault than to
be thankful for mercies received.  It
is eminently satisfactory, for instance, to be  told  that  "the past
year has been one of general prosperity," and one's mind instinctively
reverts to the paternal government
that's at the bottom of it all—well,
perhaps not all, but a good deal.
Equally satisfactory in kind is the
statement that  "the yield of our
coal  mines exceeds any  previous
year," and the hint of "great expansion in this important industry" in
the future is most encouraging. But
when we read that "the revenue for
the last fiscal year considerably exceeded the estimates," and plumped
right on top of that again, before we
have had time to catch our breath,
the cheerful  assurance  that  "the
present year promises still further
increase," one has to hold himself
down hard to keep from rushing
forth and  shaking both hands of
every one he meets.    After adverting to the wholesome effect which
the display of  brawn and striped
trousers by "O" battery is likely to
produce for all time among the "remote and semi-barbarous tribes" of
the upper Skeena, his honor promises the assembly two pretty fat
oysters for their delectation later on,
to-wit, "papers" would be laid before
them concerning a mission of one of
the ministers to Ottawa, and also, it
was  expected, the  decision of the
"judicial committee of .Her Majesty's privy council" on the "Minerals case."   Before the oysters are
fairly disposed  of in -anticipation,
the   "assembled   wisdom" have to
swallow a solid wad on top of the
juicy bivalves, relative to the "consolidation of the statutes," the combined effect of which is fitted to
produce incurable nightmare. When
they have reached this semi-somnambulistic state, the unhappy legislators are  to be "invited to consider
whether the time has not arrived
for the establishment in the prov-
.*..__ ._•_ juveniie reformatory"—
considerations, weleavothat branch bf
the subject, but thall touch briefly
on other points in connection with
the exhibition. We are assured
that all our Westminster readers,
at least, are agreed with us that the
exhibition mutt be made a grand
success—something in the show line
tbat will be altogether unprecedented in this province, and, at the same
time, that wilt be very hard to beat
in the near future. To do this, we
shall require assistance from various
sources. As our readers know, the
agricultural association has already
applied to the provincial government
for an appropriation towards erecting exhibition buildings on the public park. As the exhibition is a
provincial affair, and a really good
exhibition—which has never been
held yet in the province—cannot
fail of being a vast provincial as well
as local benefit, it is to be hoped
that tho government may make a
liberal appropriation. The city
council, too, should be asked to
devote a liberal sum to putting the
grounds in condition, both for exhibition purposes, recreation
grounds, and as a public park. By
a report in Tub Columbus of
Wednesday, of the meeting in this
city of the directors of the B. O.
Agricultural Association, it will
have been seen that the directors
have arranged to meet again on the
the 19th of February, to prepare a
prise list. This is a .good early
start, quite different from past
methods. The only fear is that
the prise liBt will be prepared before enough money has been guaranteed to justify the directors in
devising it on a sufficiently liberal
scale. If onr citizens wish to insure the unqualified success of the
approaching exhibition, there should
be no more "backwardness about
coming forward."

and then, to the consideration of the
"public accounts and the estimates,"
and the "faithful" and the "loyal"
are left to their "deliberations,"
where we will leave them for the
present, also.
At the risk ot wearying our
readers, we must return to the subject of the exhibition fund, and
respectfully present a few considerations that, in our opinion, ought to
weigh about a ton in inducing our
citizens to subscribe liberally and at
once toward the fund mentioned.
We have no doubt that a good many
intend to give liberal financial assistance towards making a brilliant
success of the forthcoming exhibition at this city, but prefer that
their names should not be published,
lest the people should think they
were trying to make personal capital out of the fact. We think, however, that such should forego their
modesty for the sake of the good
effects that will result from the
publication of a large and constantly
increasing subscription list. As
the list grows and attains respectable proportions, many both in the
eity and diitrict will be stimulated
to help swell the amount, that otherwise would "not think it worth
while." In this way a large aggregate
amount will be secured, and the
success of the exhibition by so much
assured. Then, tbe list itself, for
which we will wittingly donate spaco
ih both the daily and weekly Colum
man, even if it should get "as big
as a house," will constitute a very
effective standing advertisement,
nolfenly of the enterprise of Westminster eity and distriot, but of the
coining exhibition as well.    This
'., will work two ways: People will be
forced to the conclusion that Westminster has got both wealth and
enterprise, and that the exhibition
is gang to be a grand affair, sure
enough, which will insure a widespread interest in, and a flockiug to
both th. oity and the exhibition.
And the assured fact that the exhibition will b_ devised and carried

duoU, manufactures, *o. With these
There are not wanting people in
the neighboring republic, and elsewhere, who have affected to despise
the good old English custom of wearing gowns  and wigs  in courts of
law.   These  decorous   and   somewhat imposing    appendages    are
rarely, if ever, seen in  American
halls of justice, with the exception,
perhaps, of the very highest courts,
where the judges have retained the
gown.    But there would appear to
be a sort of half-smothered hanker
ing after these things—an aching
void, so to speak, in the Yankee
judicial    breast—which     clamors
louder than words for a return, at
least, to   the  old-time  gown;  the
wig will probably  follow in  good
time—borne in on the orest of some
great  Anglo-phile  wave   in that
happy time in the near future when
the  American   constitution   shall
have been  amended, and presidential elections have become fewer and
farther between,   According to an
American  exchange, the Pennsylvania supreme court justices have
returned to the-old-fashioned gowns,
an action which our Yankee co-
temporary characterizes as a "pleasing and useful devotion' to appearances," and continues in' this style:
"The dignity of a court of justice is
something worthy of visual recognition, and bench and bar are more
likely to observe the sanctity of
official rank when judges are clothed
in a distinctive costume.   The judge
who puts his feet on hii desk and
chewB tobacco to steady his attention to the lawyers below him, may
dispense  exactly the same degree
and equality of justice that bis mora
decorous brother in silk gown does,
but the appearances are against
him,   The justices of the supreme
court of the United States have always worn black gowns, and once
tbey  were variegated by  scarlet
facings.   These were abandoned together with the old-fashioned wigs,
as savoring too strongly of the English  custom.   The graceful, heavy
silk gown was, however, retained aa
being neither national nor provincial in its symbolism, but the costume everywhere that law is con*
strued by judges.    From an artistie
standpoint it is immeasurably better than the plainer garbs of the
every-day citizen.    To this painters
and sculptors complainingly testify.
Nothing is more dangerous to the
sculptor than the dress-coat on his
statue; nothing  so comfortable as
the flowing judicial robe.   So the
judge  who  wishes  to endow his
bench with respect and hii  statue
with grace should adopt the silk
gown.   The day may come when
the judicial  silk  will rustle from
Maine to Washington Territory."
Bravo, friend Jonathan! And if you
can only manage to smuggle in a
little   genuine British justice and
enforcement of and respect for law
in the folds of the "judicial silk,"
why the time may come when we
may think it safe to annex you, and
then you won't need any navy, and
we'll show yon how to get away with
that awful bugbear of a "surplus"
that is worrying you so at present.

*-****M A PIANO-TUNER'S TALK.
Be Talks About, the strange things He
... Encounters in His Trade.
"Look out for that rati" was'the eicla-
~" n©1 a piano-tuner of thia city to a w-
' sa*foaal(efltoodwatohing
.to i-N»n iayi tho New
~iowordli had hardly been
_ i leaii rat'jtimpedont'o-.
the instrument and scampered across the
room and out of an open door. While he
was dexterously removing the rat's nest
from inside the piano the reporter asked if
rata were usually part and parcel of pianos.
Tho tuner remarked that while probably
two-thirds of the instruments in residences
were free from toe ndente tho other third
wero infeated with them*; at least thai has
been his experience during twenty years of
his lifo. Thote In tho country, especially In
well-to-do formers' houses, were generally
inhabited by rats, and in dozens of cases
fully half a bushel of small scraps of paper
that had boen carried thero by the pests
had been discovered. The paper and tbe
nests were not so bad, but rats very frequently did the instrument much damage.
Rata pay bavoo with the felta in tbo action, and he had repaired pianos where the
•' felta had all been eaten away; Occasionally a hungry rat is discovered that shows
light, and the wielding of a broomstick,
with the accompanying screaming by the
women folk, is necessary to get rid of the
animal.    l     r ' '■"'■ > ■
Children oftentimes cause pianos to get
out of order, but'while tho troublo caused
by thom is usually quickly repaired, thero
are times when they do more damage than
rats. Left alone in the room with an open
instrument the spirit of mischief comes
. over tbem and a cane or a book is poked in
under ir among the strings; Tbe owner'
returns to tftay on tho piano and then finds
it at sixes and sevens. Aa every thing was
all right but ft few minutes before, the
oause of the trouble can not be understood,
and then there is bluster about the house.
Should the piano be a new one the maker
Is blamed) fhe Instrument is condemned
and a -.harp letter is forwarded to the
seller, 'nie repairer with fear and trembling hastens to tbo scene, the trouble is
found, and after apologies, the whipping ol
the small boy who did the mischief and the
payment of the bill for repairs, the piano is
left to its fate.
Picking up a five-cent piece lying on tbe
action, the tuner said: ''Here is something,
• .too, I find, as well aa rata' nests and the
'work of children. To be sure, money is not
found frequently, especially in any considerable amount, but the finding of two
fat pocket-books and a 910 gold piece I will
never forget. The gold had been placed in
tbo piano for safe keeping by a young lady
and its hiding place forgotten, and my finding it, of course, nude the owner happy,
Tbe bringing to light of one of tho pocket*
books mode me ISO richer, that being a
present from its loser. It had been missing
for a year, and contained 1600. Detectives
had bean hunting for thieves who, it was
supposed, had stolen the money* The dis*
covery of the pocket-book brought back the
recollection that it had been laid on tbe top
lid of an upright piano, and that It hod no
doubt fallen In tho ioglde, where I hid
found it
"Instead of getting a reward I came near
being arrested and perhaps sentenced to
a term of Imprisonment tor finding the
other purso Its contents wero over two
hundred dollars, and, like the other one,
having beon carelessly left on top of the
Instrument, it felt inside. Being missed
while I was in the house, and the owner of
the money, a country justice, remembering
where he had laid it, suspicion rested on me
•s the ono who had taken it When I remarked the mysterious actions of tho
justice, his wife and two daughters, he told
mo of tils loss and what he suspected, and
threatened my arrest unless tye money was
immediately produced. It was a bad predicament to bo in, and what to do puulod mo.
The finding of the other pocketbook flashed
across my mind.' I suggested* ailfar-'h in
the interior of tho piano, and there It was
found, to my joy. Tbe old man took it without so much as saying ' Thank you,' and to
this day I think be holds the opinion that I
hid It away in the piano." *
IDENTIFIED AT LAST.

That classical anecdote of the English
child who, when reminded that she ought
to go to her mother, replied: "Her ainta-
ealllng we; na don't belong to she," not
only proves tbat a confusion of oases ia
common to untutored minds, but also tbat
they are deeply attachod*t» jfroneuna. In
thocountry,CBpecially,sayathe Vi*w.h'« Com-
panfott, does ft love of that part of speech
greatly abound. It'may be a condition of
the natural sheepisbness attendant on the
closer relations of lifo, but certain ft is that
in most rural districts the husband speaks
vaguely of his wifo as "she," while the othor
side of the shield is displayed in her reference to " bin."
"Iwasgoln' out tomowthat morntlP,"
said »fanner, when giving his evidence iu
court, "and I says toAor"—
"Whom do you mean hy her I" inter*
rupted the judge.   " Tbe prisoner!"
"No, no, not the prisonerl She wn'n't
thero I" said the witnoss, hardly concealing
his scorn cf tho judge's stupidity. "I waa
talkin* to her. Bhe was in tiie bouse fry in1
doughnuts"—
" Who wss frying doughnutsl"
• "Why, i?w wast And I said"-
•• Your honor," interrupted the opposing
counsel, "It seems to me absolutely essential thst the Identity of this unknown woman should bo settled."
"She didn't have nothin1 to do with the
case at all I" cried the witness, indignantly.
"She was fryln' her doughnuts for breakfast snd I says"—
"Whst-is-her-nsael" said his honor,
leaning forward and emphasialflf every
word with'a shake of the finger. -

The witness turned toward the back of
tho court-room, and pointed ft brown and
stalwart finger at ft wiry little woman who
sat there glaring indignantly at the lawyers
who weie badgering him.

ENERGY VERSUS LUCK. ~
Tlie Ignorant Superstition Whleh l'rs-vatu
_ In Itegant to the Latter.        \ I -
"Give a msn luck and throw him into the
sea," l», perhaps, one of tho oldest sayings
extant all over the world, ttr we find its
equivalent in every knguagei spoken, it is
o pity we nro pot all glftM with 'this fort*
iinate^grocej-if' we wbire We need nevor
trouble at any time. But it happens, however, snys the London Standard, that tho so-
called lucky ones are very few nnd vory
far between; and yet, to note the observations of overy-doy life, one would imagine
that tho contrary were tho case—that is to
say, if wo may judge from the fact that
everybody asserte that every body else is
lucky except himself. " I never knew such
lock as that man has," saya- Jones of
Brown, and Brown of Jones remarks that
"Jouos has The very devil's own luck—
overy thing ho does turns out well." and
still thoy may be both in tho same boat
struggling against impending adversity, or
calmly gliding along the stream of comparative prosperity.
It is merely the outcome of an unfathom-
nblo' discontent that pervades all, or nearly
all human creatures—that semi-jealous
feeling cf each other's neighbor that Hilda
lodf-ing in overy breast Now, risking the.
wrath of the superstitious and the believers In omens and odd numbers, we firmly
maintain tbat thore is no such thing as luck
nt'dll Perseverance and circumstance nro
tho secret of all success, and, as nothing
succeeds liko success, luck Is the natural
scquonco of perseverance. It is mainly the
kickers and lazy people who perpetually
rave about lack of luck, forgetting that, if
thoro bo any virtue ln this tantalizing talisman, it is very like the philosopher's stone,!
and reqiures a considerable amount of
delving and diving to secure.    '.;■
Shakespeare gives evldenoe that he was
not free from this peculiar failing. In tho
"Merry Wives of Windsor"' he nialitis that;
gonial und obeso old rogue "Falstafl" say
to "Dnme Quickly," "Good luck lies in odtt
nunibora. They say there is a divinity in
odd -lumbors-eitber in nativity, clmncoor
death!" This idea Is, of course, founded on
tho Pythagorean system, "All nature ts*.
harmony; man tsn full chord, and aU beyond
. is Deity, so that nine represents Deity."
And thus A major chord consists of a fundamental or tonic, its major third and its just
fifth. Seven notes complete the octavo,
and nine is Deity. The odd numbers being
tbo primary notes of nature, itls easy to:
soo how they came to be considered the
great or lucky numbers'; but then the luok
belongs exclusively to the numbers and not
to the application thereof, as is tbe popular
impression.
But to enter into or properly explain the
positions and qualities of odd numbers
would paralyze the groat Euclid himself.
Bo, to return to our luck. If thero be such
an uncanny thing, how is it thht never since
tho creation has one man ever been known
to credit his success in life to luck* His
downfall, yes, to.bad luok; his rise and
progress to luck, good, bad or indifferent*
Never. If any one bad the temerity to suggest suoh a thing the notion would be
scouted aa not only preposterous but impious. Tho answer would be something lilre
this; "Uy success, sir, which you vulgarly attribute to luck, haa beon achieved by
sheer hard work and determination; and
what I havo earned I deserve." And ln
most cases tt would be right
Certainly there aro at times fortuitous
circumstances that make a man successful,
whether ho will or not, but then suoh is not
luck, it Is pure accident And as we are all
liable to meet with disagroeablo accidents,
so ore we all Ukeiy to meet with agreeable
ones. Only we nevor own it, supposing wo
think so. Wo go on declsring that "it Is
betterto be born lucky than rich'," and yet
we are quite incapable of explaining what
wo exactly mean. In tho commercial sense
—and It is only in the commercial aeuee
that wo think upon the subject-if wo arc
rich, we don't want luck, and if wo aro
lucky wo nre rich. Lord.Beacousflold says
in "Venetla:" "Luck, la he who has neither
creditors nor offspring, and who owes
neither money nor affection—after all the
most difficult to pay of the two." This Is so
cynically truo that not a soul-believes it
Faith in tho charm of too horse-shoo Is
hold sacred to this day, in town and oountry, by ignorant persons; but wo do not
imagine that they nail it up over tho door as
a protection against witches, as was once
the custom. It Is supposed to rather bring
good luck than to avert any evil. Hanv
otherwise sue Individuals will stoop to pick
up a shoe In the street, and others would
rather deliver up all their goods and chattels than walk under a udder. Thero is
moro common sense in this latter idiosyn-
cracy than may appear at first sight. One
docs not run so great ft risk Of receiving a
paint-pot or • brick, that may be on the
journey from the roof to the pavomont, outside tho range of the ladder as immediately
under it This pis about the only superstition that is worth preserving.
Generally speaking, logical people discard
the conceit of any thing coming to pass
through mora "luok," though numbers on
tbo surface profess unshakable belief tbere*
In. Asa rulo, thoae who comptuin about
their bod luck are those who complain about
any thing—those wbo expect fortunes to
drop into their lops without any exertion on
their part to obtain them, people are frequently heard to lament they are down oa
their luck, and then they absolutely do sit
down pn tholr luck and stay there. Most
things come tothe man who works, but very
few to the msn who calmly sits down and
waits. Nothlngupsets superstition as much
ss common sense. There Is ho such quality
as luck, exoept it ho, In ft-very unknown
quantity. People bave bad luck when they
can not tako tho rough with the smooth;
when thoy wear out the smooth and forget
that It evor existed. Good luok moans good
intentions woll carried out; and, aftor all,
the only lucky man in the' world is be who
is lucky enough to get what hs deserves.

"A Chinaman wbb beaten to death
on Friday at Sapperton, near Now
Westminster. He was set upon by
two Indians, beaten and robbed, dying
from his injuries soon aftor." This
lugubrious yarn, started by the two
Vancouver papers, bas gone therounda
of the provincial press, and we suppose will continue to circulate until
superceded by some moro sensational
lie. We havo already stated that thero
was not the slightest truth in the
story, nor any grounds for its foundation. It is impossible to imagine
how the Vancouver scribes got hold of
Buch an idea in tho first place. An
explanation from these gentlemen
would be rather interesting.
A Desperate rijt1rt.
John Cramer and N. J. Sullivan,
two well-known hoofllunis of oiir city,
fought this morning many savage
rounds, by way of settling a question
Involving the good name of a young
girl, sister of Sullivan. A few months
Cramer insulted Sullivan's sister,
thereupon swore that he would
thrash Cramer in the near future.
The occasion offered''-Itself this morning. Both men met on the Indian
reservation near Clark & Turpel's ship
yard and hero they fought out thoir
battle. They battled with bare fists
for an hour and a quarter, and finally
one man lay on tlie turf and failed to
como to time. It was Cramer, and the
honor of the woman he insulted was
vindicated. Ho is very badly used up,
Ilia nose ia cut to the bone and his eyes
are black as night.—Standard Jan. St.

On Thursday morning a man named
J. 0. Smith, from Vancouver,appeared
betoro the police magistrate charged
with obtaining money under false pro-
tenses. The charge was laid by Mr.
W. E. Riles, who, hdwever, did not
press it as strong as ho might havo
done, Tho evidence waa not of that
character which would bring Smith
within the limit of tho law, but at tho
same-time it was evident that his
actions iu the matter wore fur from
honest. Tho police magistrate dismissed tho case but not before giving
Smith a sevcro lecture on his disreputable conduot. Smith no sooner got
froo than ho set about borrowing moro
money, and when ho had victimized n
number of peoplo ho left for tho south
instead of Vancouver to return to
work as he stated. Our American

Tho Seattlo Post-InMligencer gives
publicity to the statement of a Port
Townsend merchant that the line of
the C.P.R. is to be extended to Port
Townsend. The route to be traversed
to reach Port Towuaend will be from
Vancouver down tbe mainland to a
point opposite Fidalgo Island. The
island can be reached hy bridging from
the mainland. The route will then lie
over the island, across Deception Pass
to Whidby Island, the track terminating at Admiralty Head. Ferries will
thence connect the road with Port
Townsend, a distance of five miles.
The Intelligencer also says that tho C.
P. R. will take an initiatory step towards making Port Townsend its American terminus by placing the Islander
on the route from Port Townsend to
Vanoouvor via Victoria. The Premier
will run between Seattle and Port
Townsend. This arrangement is expected to be consummated very soon.

Kootenay Hot m.
Col. Baker, M.P.P., states tho mining industry in both Eaat and Wost
Kootonay is developing with rapid
strides. In the latter valloy tho Toad
Mountain camp is attracting attention
of capitalists, and there is every reason to believe that noxt summer a considerable amount of capital will be
available for developing tho mines.
Notices are out for charters for railways, and one at all events fs likely to
be proceeded with as soon as a oharter
is obtained.
In tbe eastern valley or, upper Kootenay large bodies of ore have been
discovered in tbo Spallumcheen district, some of it assaying high. The
ore is argentiferous galena and grey
copper.
A large bed of gray copper haa also
been discovered at Windermere, but
as yet it has not been opened up. Another immenso body of argentiferous
galena has beon discovered up tho celebrated Wild Horso Creek. Anothor
up Toby Crock, which falls into the
Upper Columbia river—in fact now
leads are being discovered in all directions, proving the district to be enormously rich in minerals, and thore is
little doubt that a large mining population will be located there in the near
future.
Coal oil springs have been recently
discovered in the Crows Nost Pass
not far from the large coal fields taken
up by the Crows Nest Coal Company.
The winter has been unusually mild
tho thermometer registering only 1.90

Mrs. D. Morrison, Farnham Centre,
