An examination in the public
schools: Professor to pupil: "In
whicli of his battles was Gustavus
Adolphus killed!" Pupil, after
rellcction : "I think it was in his
lust buttle."
Tbe criminal libel suit brought by
Mr. H. J. Clarke against Mr. Acton
Burrows was dismissed in Winnipeg
recontly on the ground that tho
libel complained of was merely the
republication of parliamentary
papers.
The direct use of electricity as a
labor-saving machine has been
applied at tho great steel works,
Cleveland, Ohio., where a large
electric-magnet is used, suspended
from a crane, to pick up steel bars
and billets. It will pick up 800 lb.
billets and drop them whero wanted
by the touch of & key, the movement
of tlio crane being dono  by   steam.
Arkansan ways of administering
justice are peculiar. The other day
a white man drew a pistol on a
negro and was fined fifty-four dollars. Tho line was not forthcoming,
so u constable put the man up at
auction to bo sold to the highest
bidder for seventy-two days time.
As the prisoner was reputed to be a
good shot and too ready with his
pistol, no one seemed anxious to
buy, and he was finally knocked
down to a friend for twenty-five
cents. The incident does not put
Arkansas civilization iu a very
fuvonible light.—Ex.
A curious case of a woman having passed herself off for a man
during more than ten yoars has just
been brought before a Paris police
commissary. The woman camo to
Paris dressed as a man in 1878,
and, in partnership with her lover,
has since been at Iho heud of an
iniportantprinting office. Till now
neither the printers whom she
directed nor any of hor customers
or other people in whose society she
was thrown ever suspected the truth.
As her conduct has given rise to no
soundal of any sort, it is possible
that tlio prefeot of police, to whom
she has now applied, will grant her
demand for authorization to continue
to dress in man's clothes.
Says an exchange : Lady Fior-
enco Dixie, alwuys original, has
taken a new departure which it
may be thought will find favour on
this side of the Atlantic, especially
whero "women's rights" are looked
upon with favour. To the invitations to n. recent ball she has just
givon, she added the following
announcement: "Contrary to the
ridiculous customary habit hitherto,
ladies will not have to wait to be
asked to dance, but will have tho
right to go directly to whatever
gentleman they choose. In my
house women shall enjoy the right
of suffrage." The Women's Suffrage Association should put Lady
Florence's name on its list of
speakers.
The following weird story told by
a traveller from the wilds of
Kwangsi admirably illustrates the
belief of tho Chinese in the transmigration of souls: "A native's wifo
was taken very ill, and before she
died sho told her husband, 'I have a
socret to confide to you, which I
never told before, for your sake and
for tho child's. When I die, do not
nail up my coffin, but leave it for a
time out on tho mountain. Have
two livo fowls ready in the house,
for after I havo beon dead a hundred
days 1 will return to the realm of
living men for n time, and como
back to our homo. Fear not, but if
I make towards the child, offer me
tho two fowls, nnd say that yourself
will tend the infant, nnd that I
need not be anxious, that between
tho dead and tho living a gulf is
fixed, and I should rest among the
depnrted and not come baok to
trouble the child. I will look at
you fixedly for a spell, take the
fowls, strangle them, and begone,
never to return. My body will not
lie down again in its coffin, but will
bo transformed into a living tiger,
nnd if hereafter yon come out to
tho place nnd see tho clothing lying
by the ooffin, you will know that
my words have come true.' Holding
her husband's hand, tho woman
oxpired. The ghost appeared at
due date, did ss the living
wife had foretold, and disappeared in the jungle; and when
the man visited tho coffin some days
after ho found the cast-off-grave-
clothes, and wept when ho thought
of their former happy life together
and her strange fate. While drinking his tears he saw a tigress stalk
from tho jungle, and knew it was
his wife transformed into a new
existence, Gently he stroked id
striped back, and with a molancholy
roar it bounded away. So deed of
blood was ever known to.be wrought
by this gentlest of tigresses on the
mountain, ond the child has grown
up and prospers.

Helena, Mont.,   March   14.—The
most disastrous fire in the history  of
tho Territory occurred  ot  0  o'clock

workfl of the Anaconda Smelting Company being entirely  destroyed.   Thu
concentration and  smash  mill  alone
wero saved.   Tho loss is $1,000,000,
though manager Daly will give  no
figures.   The fire is thought to be the

patrol is constantly on duty, but when

start that nothing could be done.   Tlio

dominion parliament.

pigeon bill, as it is dubbed,  received
another set back when tho house went
into committee.   Tistlalo moved  that
the committee rise.   This motion was

amendment. His amendment provides that American tuga in inland
waters bo permitted to tow rafts and
vessels from one Canadian port to
another Canadian port, provided that
tho United States granted reciprocal
terma to Canadian tugs in American
inland waters. A clause In tho
amendment also provides that this
orangement do not take effect until
proclaimed by the governor-general.
Hon. Peter Mitchell said that when
the principle of reciprocity on the
great lakes was adopted, it ought to
extend to tho Atlantic coast.
Mr, Kenny, of Halifax, objected ontho ground that the underwriters would give the American
salvage companies privileges on the
Atlantic coast. He opposed the amendment. The Americans, he contended,
had adopted a bullying attitude towards Canada on every occasion.
Charlton's amendment was lost on a
division of 21 to 07, and the bill passed
its second reading aa reported from the
committee.
. Section 2 oftho original bill, as reported from the select committee, applying the provisions of the bill to tho
Wetland Canal and to the waters of
the St. Mary's river and canal, were
struck out.
At last nights debate reference was
mado to tho quantity of coal exported tu the United States from British
Columbia, and some Conservative
members agreed that 75 cents per ton
duty was an incalcuable benefit to the
people of British Columbia. The
British Columbia members, some of
whom were in the house, made no remarks. Mr. Chishulm was Been taking notes. They are likely to vote a-
guinst reciprocity with the States.
Mr. Wood, of Westmoreland, resumed tho budget debate this afternoon. Thero was a swell attendance
in the house. Mr, Wood, though not
eloquent, delivered one of tbe best
speeches of the session. He dealt
with tho unrestricted reciprocity arguments of the Liberals, and said
that thuse who favored that policy
were fond of comparing the condition
and progress made by Canada and the
United States. Taking both countries
as a whole Mr. Wood gave voluminous
statistics to show that tho prosperity
of the American union was unevenly
distributed between the various state?
and urged that the only fair comparison that could be mado would bo a
comparison of the Canadian provinces
with the adjacent states, including
Maine, Vermont. New York and Michigan. Canada by this comparison
would, ho contended, make a bettor
showing, relatively speaking, than
thoso states.
Mr. Gigault replied and said: "The
Liberals were fond of holding up tho
United States beforo Canadian eyes aa
an example of great progress, lie rejoiced nt this and hoped that Canadians wuuld continue tu follow still
further in tho footsteps uf the United
States in building up hor industries by
means of a  protective policy."
Colonel Amyot followed- Ho admitted that Canada hnd mndo progress
under protection, but favored unrestricted reciprocity. Ho said all economical reasons show that this latter is
the best policy. Tho United States
took the first Bteps toward removing
trade barriers, Canada ought to do the
same. When tho United States displayed unfriendly policy it would bo
time for Canada to retaliate, but everything points to the extension of our
trade relations. It was a mistaken
idea that the French Canadians enjoy
greater liberties under British rulo,
Any advantages his country may have
secured were guaranteed by treaty,
and wero partly the result of special
circumstances.
Sir John Macdonald wilt move on
Tuesday for the appointment of a select committee to confor with n select

smalley's cable.
London, March 16.—'The second ap-
peurance of the American baseball
teams does but confirm the first expressions of the English. They played to
the people yesterday including a large
number of cricketers, amateurs and
professionals, who agree that batting
is the weak point of baseball; the bat
is not shaped so as to make scientific
playing of the ball practicable, and
even if it were the batsmen would get
no sure advantage from their skill.
"Wo could soon put a team in the field
that would make a fair show against
your baseball champions," said one distinguished cricketer, "but your men
would not have a chanco against us at
cricket after years of practice. Science
is on our side." Civilities to the Americans are not less numerous -than if
tho game wero better liked. The men
themselves are more admired than
ever. Mr. Irving, who never forgets
his American friends, asked them to
the Lyceum where they saw ''Macbeth"
as Macbeth's guests. Their interview
with the Princo of Wales ot the Oval
on Tuesday, I hear, gratified tbem.
Tho prince held an informul levee for
their benefit m tbo committee room of
the Surrey cricket club, nnd Mr. White
presented each player to him by name
as they filed past. To moat of them,
the prince mado somo pleasant remark.,
after the times.

BRAVE CASSAGNAC.
Paris, March 14.—In the senate to-
dny Senator Myquet refused to defend
himself from the charges made against
him on account of his connection with
the Patriotic League. He said he
knew the chamber had condemned him
already, theroforo he would say nothing in hiB defence. The prosecution
of the league was sanctioned by a vote
of 213 to 58. In the chamber of deputies the committee appointed to confer regarding the prosecution of the
league, rendered a report advising the
prosecution of Deputies Lagurrea, Lai*
sunt and Turquet. An excited debate
ensued. M. Paul Cassagnao defied the
chamber tc prosecute General Boulanger, and stigmatized the government
as cowards. The chamber authorized
the prosecution of the deputies named
by a voto of 334 to 227. Owing to the
excitement of the debate duels are
likely to toko place between M. M.
Arene and Provost, M. M. Buredeau
and Cossognnc and M. M, Pichon and
Lagurrea.

Ho declared ho had not travelled such a

who may bo fleeing from justice to tho

It will bo seen by on itcitti in
another column tlmt Mr, Higgins,
for tbo Jlosfi, McLaren Co., will
lay ah ultimatum before the city
to the effect that tho company's
mill will not be erected on the site
abovo this city unless on thu condition that the council ngroo to
havo the projected Southern Railway and traffic bridge built across
tho Fraser at some point above" tlie
proposed situ of tbe Ross, McLaren
mills. The reason assigned for this
demand is that the bridge will interfere with the towing of vessels to
and from tbe mills, and prove very
detrimental to the company's interests. It is almost too bad thut the
Ross, McLaren men find tlio prospective bridge to be so much in the
way that they cannot carry on
their milling operations on the river
unless it is thrown across about
three miles above the city. The
bridge will, of course, have a draw,
and in similar circumstances elsewhere navigation has been found
to be quite possible. At any rate.it
would prove very detrimental to
the citi/'s interests to consent to
have the railway and traffic bridge
built either above or below tbo city,
aud such a proposition cannot be
entertained for n moment. While
we are in favor of giving every
reasonable encouragement to new
industries and enterprises, we have
no hesitation in declaring that tbo
royal city does not hold itself so
cheap as to be successfully dictated
to, against its own interests, by tbo
agents of any corporation, however
colossal in its operations, promises,
or threats. The bridge in question,
as is well known, is to bo u traffic
as well us a railway bridge. Tbo
first-named feature is a very important one, and would itself justify
the bonus required. But a traffic
bridge three miles above tho city,
connecting with no roads on the
opposite side of tbe river, is too
absurd to be thought of. Local
traffic would, of course, in time,
adopt itself, by forcfi of necessity, to
such a roundabout route, but the
inconvenience to the public and tho
damage to tins city would be incal
culabte. We should be sorry to
see the Ross, McLaren Oo. abandon
their intention of operating their
extensive mills near tbe city, but if
this is contingent upon Mr. Higgins1
ultimatum, tbe larger interests of
the city must bo considered flrst.
Fashionable   New York society,
which is   said  to   have  narrowed
itself down to "four hundred," and
is moro than half inclined to blackball Mrs. Cleveland, now   that  she
is the wife of a private citizen, bits
u genuine "fad" just now, which has
more to recommend   it  than mere
novelty.     The    select   ones   have
actually been invaded by the salvation army, in the person of   Mrs.
Ballington Booth, a pretty, refined,
and   formr-i'ly socioty young  lady,
who has renounced the world and
its follies, espoused the cause of tli
despised Salvationists, donned their
uniform, and, as tbe wife of a son of
General Booth, tbe founder   of   the
array, is devoting her life to salvation army work both in   the   slums
and palaces of the great American
- metropolis.    In all the luridness of
the army uniform,   Mrs.  Booth is
couutciianccd ami given audience in
the rectory parlors of the Episcopal
church and the fashionable   parlois
of Fifth avenue,   and   the   "upper
crust1' -ire for the time nothing loth
to bear tin's devoted   woman speak
of the subject nearest her heart und
of hor work  in the slums of New
York.    In fact Mrs, Booth has become the rage,     Before  the  whim
changes, it is not improbable   thut
some lessons in humanity   and   the
common origin and brotherhood of
man may have beon brought home
to the minds of the exclusive "society" of New York. Gail Hamilton,
a popular /Vmerican writor,discusses
thn subject in   tbe Graphic,   frp-m
which we make the   following   extracts:   "The introduction of  the
salvation  army into tho ranks of
fashion may be only   a  fashionable
caprice.     Tho  output  from   that
Winy of a young and pretty woman
into the haunts of the "four  hundred" may be because she was young
and   pretty;   bnt can youth and
beauty bo better employed than   in
bridging the awful chasm between
society   nud  the  slums.     If the
Power outsido ourselves has so mado
ourselves that truth is   more  winning from curved and rosy lips than
from hard and harsh or even from
uncouth and ugly ones,   why  not
avail ourselves of it and bid truth
Win, even thus,   her   votaries 1 ■ If
society will take up Mrs. Ballington
Booth because of her simple charm,
let ns look scrutinizing^ at what
Mrs. Ballington Booth is trying to
do before wo utterly   frown  down
this social whim.   Whut  says  tho
young woman in the poke bonnet 1
For one thing, that she is going to
put the salvation army, on a different footing from that whioh it  lias
hitherto held—as needs must, if she
Is the gentle lady her bearing indi
oates; and on the other hand Bhe
doos propose to continue some of the
methods which havo made it to socioty not only objectionable but impossible. Yet on these points she is
not stubborn but argumentative.
Sho speaks from observation and
experience. She admits that the
army is theatrical, but pleads that
they must bo theatrical to secure
their followers. It is tho old argument of the mere; the harmless and
the conclusive Pauline argument—
to become all things to nil men in
order that some mon may be won.
* * * Mrs. Booth tells us that
she has entered rooms where women
were living who never so much ns
lifted their head ut hor entrance, or
made any sign of recognition of her
presence. Many and many a time
has sho rolled up her sleevos, tied a
sha wl around ber head-taken inop or
broom in hand, and as the ladies of
society visit euch other with cards
und carriage, broom and mop have
been her visiting cards and her
medium of intercourse in her calls
upon her nnd our wretched fellow
citizens, Often has she gone thus
her dreadful round simply helping
theso dumb creatures in their hopelessness ; helping to scrub floors and
scrub babies without speaking one
word of religion. But she hus thus
secured her second position which is
of equally vital importance to the
lirst; viz., the friendliness of her
beneficiaries. Thus havo thoy been
drawn towards her and have felt
onco more the toucU and throb and
thrill of human life. Is it not possible tbat the cornet and drum may
have something to say for themselves. If fate has gone so hard, if
living souls have grown so benumbed
with beastly toil that common curiosity is dead within them, may not
Mrs, Booth be right in affirming
that far oft'church bells will ring in
vain for them 1 It must be something near and clear and loud,which
they will hear. Only that which
shocks the ear attuned to melody
■an strike the ear deadened by
doom to all but love. Not deadened
to love, for through all the misery
and the squalor the' mother's love
delves on and on, us Mrs. Booth
incidentally testifies, simply to provide food for the children for whom
she can provide little else. Mrs.
Booth and her miseries would better be a fashionable-fad in Fifth
avenue drawing rooms than not bo
in them at all. There is a vital
connection between the purlieus of
wretchedness and tho palaces of
luxury. * * * If Fifth avenue and tbe rectories will do something besides make a fad of Mrs.
Booth, will stay her hands as Hur
and Aaron stayed the hands of
Moses, will follow her with money
and time and organization into her
haunts of poverty, will help ber to
send the mother and children, whenever it is possible, out into the cheap
country-side where fresh air costs
nothing and fresh water costs nothing, where rent is low and work
|s greatly in demand j will help to
support the poor mother there, will
eke out tho labor of her feeble hands
with their own generous surplus
till she shall have grown strong to
support hor children or even until
her children hove grown strong to
support her—why, it will not be
inexpensive, but it will be less expensive than a 'revolt' less expensive than an uprising'" Gail Hamilton concludes as follows: "Blow,
bugles, blow, if your blast can pierce
the darkness of death ! Nuisance
the salvation army may be, beneath
the windows of Fifth avenue, but
not so great a nuisance as the reeking cellars out of sight, where vice
and wretchedness brood and breed.
If tho salvation army can purify
thoso purlieus, blow, bugles, blow,
though every ear of Fifth avenue bo
deafened with their din."

In every city there are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, make them
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have wo
in tho subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city iu 1SG2 and
has, through all tho vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trade, maintained the oven tenor of his way.
His transactions havo increased
year by year, and tho circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widening nnd his firm oxtending until ho now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in British Columbia. His
buildings nre large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this space is filled
with a completo and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wall-paper, wooden*-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, house furnishings,
iron pipo and fittings. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and does every variety of
.sheet-iron cornice work, gas-6ttinga,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
houso in the trade which carries a
more completo stock or whoso facilities surpass those of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of time this gentleman
has been in business and tho success he has attained ure better
recommendations than the loudest
praise wo could possibly give. We
may mention, howover, to our readers who have not yet become acquainted with this firm, that none
in the Northwest has a better reputation for fair and honorable dealing.

dab) NOVELTIES IN FANS.
Tho    Newest   Fashions in  Pair
Woman's Dainty Weapon.
Exquisite anil Delicate Articles That Cost
Five Hundred or a Thoumtn-I  Dollars—A Fan to Match Every Costume tho Proper Caper.
Host ladies in society have a fan to match
each costume, and fans, liko dresses, have a
peculiar form for oach occasion of service,
says tbo New York Hun, As an accom-
paniement to tho dainty neglige dresses Is
an equally dainty toy of painted surah and
ivory, while for tho afternoon tea, with its
elaborate gown, is a beautiful gauze and
liit-e affair described below. At dinner exquisitely painted fans of vellum, gauzo or
silk with amber or tortoise sticks accompany
tlio elegance of tho dinner toilet, whilo for
ovening wear are spangled gauzo fans and
Uiobo of long waving oatrieh feathers. Tho
fairy-like luce fan is sacred to brides.
Probably the most expensive) funs ever
used in the city aro the point-lace fans sold
at a big jewelry store, on wliich the pattern
Is picked out in littlo diamonds and whoso
bur is Bet with tho samo precious stones,
and cost from $500 to $1,000 and ovon moro.
These fans nre not kept in stock, but the
plain lace fans aro frequently sold, costing
from 950 to $350, and the fan bars in stock
range in prico from $20 to -J50. Sometimes
liulios bring tholr fans and hnvo thom
ornamented with the diamonds at an ex-
peuse of $600 to $000. Beautiful fans are
displayed, too, painted hy Houghton, Laftltto,
Lasellny, Grlvay, Chouneviollo and Albert
(French painters famous for their fan decoration) varying in prico from $00 to $500.
Tho material used in theso elegant trifles Is
lino gauzo, surah, satin nnd vellum, the
most correct and popular of wliich at present
in gauzo. The sticks are enrven pearl inlaid with gold, mother-of-pearl, amber, tortoise shell, sandal-wood, violet wood, gold
and sliver. Tho decoration is usually a
figure or group of figures, with encircling
flowers; but flowers uro rarely used alone
in the decoration of expensive fans. One
.- beautiful fan, evidently designed fordecora-
tive purposes rather than general use, was
of plain black gauze painted hy Albert with
two nude reclining woman, exquisitely
tinted and carefully executed.
Among the curios in a Broadway store ia
a case of extremely ancient fans, painted by
La Baur on vellum, with carved mother-of-
pearl Bticks ornamented with bas-relief of
nymphs set around with inlaid gold. These
fans, though somewhat dilapidated and too
frail for any service, bring a price of $180.
The summer novelties in fans display a
rare delicacy of material, an exquisite and
artistic beauty of decoration, and an extensive and unique variety of design. The
most popular stylo for summer uso is an
urrangement of gossamer and gilt, edged
with luce, nud painted in delicate hues, with
botiu tiful trailing sprays of flowers or graceful iltfiu'cs in Watteau designs and coloring.
Bomo or tho moro olaborato of those have
Ivory sticks nicked out in gold or silver and
exquisitely curved.
Ono noticeable variety of the typo isapale
pink gauzo fan with pearl sticks carved and
inlaid with gold, with tho figure of a dove
with wide-spread wings painted in soft
shades at tho top; another, edged with a
bordor of roses, is cut out in tho Bhapo of
tho I'owcib atthe top; while still another,
of en::, gray gauzo edged with lacoapplique,
is decorated with a small landscnpo, whoso
stron.-; effects of light are brought out hy
bits o i mother-of-pearl. A fan of cardinal
crape llsse. with slender sticks scarcely a
quarter of an Inch in width, carved mm enameled, oxtending to tho bordor of tho fun
outtiide tho gauzo, hus bands of ribbon narrowing to a point between each stick, apd is
ornainohtod with a dainty decoration tu gilt.
Yet moro expensive fans of this kind havo
an applique of Ince transferred upon them,
leaving portions of the gauze in tho center
for Uio decoration of ,dolicato painting.
These funs sometimes como as high as $150,
but muy bo bought, for $15 and 820. Noxt in
expense comes the feather fans, so much
used with ovening dress, and vory popular,
( with plain mother-of-pearl sticks, and mndo
up in many unique designs, one of tho most
beautiful being composed of threo long
ostrich feathers uud a soft-curled bunch of
tips surmounted en an ivory handle,
Paus nro also made entirely of flowers to
match different costumes. A fan of violets
with violet wood sticks which emit the fragrance of the flowers, is a beautiful arrangement. Still more costly nud rare aro tho
point-lace fans kept in stock iu some of tho
largo stores in tho city, but rarely sold except as bridal presents. Theso come as high
ob $05. The range of pricos, where a cholco
collection of imported gauzo faus Is displayed, run from three to sixty dollars,
whilo tho fair average price paid by ladlos
is from ten to fifteen dollars.
The fan counters exhibit tho widest rnngo
in prioo, extending from 25 cents to nearly
-$300, and an endless variety of stylo from
the gilded paper Japanese fun to tho costly
bnublo of round point aud painted gauzo,
with carved pearl sticks inlaid with gold, in
exquisite design, costing $175.
Tho latest novelty in fans is tho ribbon
fan, composed of gauzo with rows of narrow ribbons of pale rainbow colors caught
loosely from one stick to the next across tho
fan. The sticks are of mother-of-pearl
shaped like the ribbons, and at the bar Is a
knot of tho mauy-huod ribbon containing
sometimes seven or eight colors in a single
fun, hut bo delicately tinted and carefully
combined as to produce a harmonious combination.
The gauze fans vary in price from 91 to
£25, are medium ln size, and have delicately
carved sticks of enameled wood or inlaid
ivory oxtending from tho bar to the edge of
tho fan outsido tho gauzo, and forming part
of its decoration. Tbey are ornamented
with embroidery, painting, and spangles,
and delicate luce applique.
A peculiar design in feather fans Ib a
bluo coke fcalhor wator Illy with a mother-
of-pearl stem arranged in the form of a fan,
while still another Is a cluster of scarlet
cactus flowers with green leaves all of tho
feathers.    ___________
PARLOR HYPNOTISM.
Artificial Somnambulism the Latest Fad
at tbo Hub.
To secure appreciation in Boston it is only
necessary that a ''fad'' shnll bo sufficiently
unhealthy, writos a Chicago Tribune correspondent from thi Hub. Any thing that Is
morbid in tho way of religion or pscudo-
scienco-splrltism, faith-healing, theosopby,
or what you will—goes in this town. The
demand for sueh incitements to dementia
here to never equaled by the supply. Thus
it is not at all surprising that ''hypnotism''
should hive become locally fashionable of
lato as a parlor amusoment.
Presumably you. are aware that under certain conditions a person susceptible to suoh
Influences may bo thrown Into a stato of artificial somnambulism by gazing intently at
some bright object, submitting to hand*
passoB before tho eyes, aud in othor ways.
Beyond this simple fact little is known regarding tho curious phenomenon in question. It is supposed thut by intense concentration of tho attention tbo upper brain-ia
winch tbe intelligence has lta seat--is put to
sloop. Meanwhile the mechanical faculties
— situated in the lower brain — remain
awake, and the helpless subject will do any
thing, howovor absurd, at tho suggestion of
tho operator. Norvous or weakly peoplo,
particularly women, are sent off into such
. fits with especial ease. Victims of tliis description afford much delight to physicians
of a certain class, who may bo satd to lmve
invented a new disease incidentally to tholr
investigation of these matters. For it would
seem that an individual who has once been
hypnotized ia ln like manner affected moro
readily another timo, and bo on progressively, until at length he, or ahe, becomes a sluve
to this extraordinary disorder and is likely
atuuy moment to bo popped off into a cataleptic trance by a sudden noiso or othoi
trifling occurrence Tho unhappy crcnturoi
who exhibit the " Wonders of Mesmerism'
, on lecture platforms oro all profcaslona
subjects-reduced In this way nearly to lm
bocmty-whom-'Prof." This or Tlmthlroi
at so much a performance to travel wltt
blm about tho country and exhibit thom
soIvob in publio. And yet there is no law tt
pwveut such RhomlnftUons. _ «.
And now it would appear that artificla
somnambulism is to bo popularized as a f. m
of cntort-itnmenfc for the.'drawing-room.
Young ludle-i - under proper chaporounge-
aru to. ho put asleop by young gentlemen of
their nequuititanco, who, In their turn, will
provide umusemont by ail sorts of nonsensical :mi ies. By tho timo that the pursuit of
thiu Interesting pastime shall have produced a reasonable number of incurable
idiots, it will probably have gone out of
vogue, to-be succeeded in Ub turn by some
other undesirable freak. Jn conclusion, it
muy be 113 well to mention a case reported
hero n fow days ago, of a girl in Cambridge,
Who—having been thrown Into tho hopnotie
condition by means of a bright steel button,
held iii front of her nose-could not bo
roused from tho cataleptic state which
usually sucoeods tho primary symptoms.
It wus only after threo or four doctors had
been summoned that sho was finally brought
buck to consciousness and at last accounts
show-is a dangerouslv-slckyoungwoi:ia:i.
It dues not pay to fool with- this kind of
thing. Certain unscrupulously scientific
persona have dovoted much attenticii Id
experimenting with it, but without neipiir-
lug any information that is of tho slightest
valuo. Incidentally they have done n great
deal of harm, and it Is high timo that something was said to discourage such systematic propagation of a pitiable nervous complaint,             _
SENATOR  INGALLS.
Incidents of His School-Pays ln un Old
lUiis-.acini m>ltn Town.
John James Ingalls, tho President of tho
National Senate, looks back to old Pontuok-
et as tho home of his boyhood and t lio place
where his beloved parents Btill reside,
writes u Haverhill correspondent. Ingalls'
forefathers woro Puritan immigrants, ono
of whom founded tho city of Lynn. Ills
father lins lived hero nearly all hid lifo, and
was engaged in the manufacture of shoes
and in mercantile interests. John Jamc;i
was tho oldest boh and was born In 163.1.
Ho attended tho grammar school at the
sumo place where the present School stroot
school-house is, and at the very early
ageof eight he entered the high school. It
was hold iu what is now called the Whit-
tier School, nnd his was tho first class to occupy the building. Although a keeu scholar
he never evinced any great talent in any direction whilo ho lived in this vioidity. At
the age of fourteen or fifteen he wrote
quito a number of poems of no special
merit, but ono ubout whioh ho was obliged
to take consldei-Bblo ■'chafing" later in life
when in college. The poem was based on
the, old legend of on incident that happened ut what is known as the "Button-
woods.'' A young country swain waa jilted
by a fair damsel, and left her with a threat
that ho was going to drown himself. Picking up a large pfoco of wood, ho rushes
toward the well. Fearing that he would
carry out his throat, tho maiden follows
after, out into tho night, and arrives just
in timo to hear the splash in tho well. It
wii3 only tho pieco of wood, howovor, and
tho youth rises from behind tho curb whoro
ho had hid, calms her fears aud Is accepted.
But this was not tho path that youug In-
gulls was destined to follow for famo aud
fortune, He was blessed with a remarkable flow of language and a ready tongue
that could put a most stinging point to his
words, and woo to tho youth who assailed
him in public, for he wus sure to suffer under Ingalls' quiet but cutting sarcasm. .U
was probably tho consciousness of this faculty that afterwards led him to enter upon
tho study of law, for whioh, as was afterwards Bean, ho was admirably fitted. At
tho ngo of eighteen ho entered Williams
College. It was while ho was familiarizing
himself with Homor and Virgil that his talents first began to bo soon, not especially in
mustering tlio dead lunguages, but iu tho
debuting hall and in tho diaoussiou of col-
lego, politics. The saino fiery oloqucuce
which upheld Iho principles of mul won ovor
nowsupporters to tbo '.'Beta Sigraas" carried its weight whon the Silver bill, tho
Ponsion bill and tho bill concerning Indian
affairs wero beforo the National Senate.
He became u leader in college politics.
In duo courso of timo Ingalls' commencement day camo around nnd he. was chosen
one of thu orators. Taking for his subject
''Mummy Life," ho embodied ia a most
brilliant ossav satirical hits thut cut the
professors and faculty to the hone. But
when tlio piece was handed in to these professors they in turn out the very heart of it
out. But tho coming lawyer and Senator
was not to be baffled in that way. Ho
learned and rehearsed the eBsay aa directed, but also learned it as ho had originally
written it, nud on commencement day delivered it ontiro, to tho dismay and confusion of tho learned professors.
CLEANING   BOTTLES.
Ingenious   novices   for   Kcmnvliij-   All
Traces of Former Contents,
There nro probably a few old-fashioned
bottlers who clean not only temporancc-
drlnk bottles, but also wine bottles with
shot; but that Is not tho practice in tho
latest approved bottling establiahmeuis,
says tho Now York Sun. Thoro Is one in
South Fifth nvcnuo wboro fivo tliousand bottles aro cleaned ovory day, and thoroughly
cleansed, without tho use of shot.
Ordinary root beer and s-irsaparllln bottles nro easily cleaned, becauso tho material
used In them is readily aud quickly, Bohiblo
ln cold water. Tlio bottles nro dumped,
throat up, into n big tub of clean cold water,
which is kept clean by constant replenishment. Each bottlo is quickly filled and allowed to soak a short time. Thon tho clean*
or grasps threo or four bottles lu his two
hands, holding them throat up, and shukea
thom vigorously. That Is BUfflciontto dislodge the sugary coating, and thon the bottles aro inverted and allowed lo drain off.
Ab thoy uro mado of transparent green
glass ll is easy to seo whon they are clean.
Caro Is tnkon to wash out any flies tlmt
have been sepulchred in tho bottlo in their
search for sweet things. The old>fusliioncd
stone bottles that wero formerly used for
root boor havo long beon discarded us too
heavy nnd costly,
Tho donning of soda-water "bottles Is
more carefully dono. Hera wurm water is
used, and the workman manipulates a four-
pronged tool that looks like a fork. Each
prong is mounted with u stiff blade of In .lin
rubber, of such shape that whon tbe prong
is thrust Into thf bottlo the rubber blade
'caches iho inner sido of tho bottle, lu
front uf tho workman Is a cocoa mat. This
serves a doublo purpose Tho mat cleans
the outsido of tho bottle, uud tho rolling
brings tho wholo inside of tho bottlo in contact with tho rubber blade. A few vigor-
rolls cloun the bottlo thoroughly, und
then It is rinsed and roady for use.
Still another process Is used for lager-
boor bottloB, which require ovon moro vigorous washing. This is done by a rauchluo
with revolving spindles, on which uro
placed rubber brushes. The bottle isthrust
ovor the spindle, which is run by steam,
nud running wator carries off the scum.
Encli bottlo thon gets a thorough Internal
scouring.
It Is, In fact, an essential clement of sue*
eessintho bottling business to keep tho
bottlos clean, and no manufacturer who expects to keep his custom would daro neglect
thoesscutful element of cleanliness, Tho
element ot cost prevents, If no other con.
Bldorations oould do so, tho slow aud tedious
method ot cleaning bottles with shot. Tli .re
was a bottlo-washing mncine In use hero not
long ago whleh cleansod bottlos with revolving bristlo bruuhos, but the wear and I car
of bristles was found to bo too expensive,
although tho work dono was very effective
The substitution of rubber blades for tlio
bristles proves to bo cheaper aud quite ub
thorough. j
A much bettor wny than thouaoof shot
for cleaning bottles is te put a small pieco
of iron ohaln with small links into the bottlos with somo wator. This, whon mUlofl
ubout, will clean a bottlo well. Of c.'Suv-O,
if a buttle bus boon filled wi-.li any i;r*\i ,y
substance the miy way Weloiin It tlimVi -g.j.
ly Is witli stro'iitf alkali, and this Is dune by
all careful bottlers.

away with Burnaby lake, depreciating,
it is claimed, the value of laud in that

of tho only inland body of water within

owners near tho lake are protesting
against the passage of the bill, und the
feeling of the people of Westminster
is not favorable tn it. Strong efforts,

Messrs. Hooper and Shupe, of Vancouver, havo discovered an immense
ledge of ore about throo miles above

gentlemen, not seeing anything in

lulls which abound on Tedadu, and aftor going down about threo feet uncovered a ledge about three feet in
width. The prospectors therefore feel
jubilant over tho new find.
Mr. Eaton has also located a fine

The For Trade.
Furs aro beginning to bo brought iu
by Indians and others, but only a small
number have been marketed as yet.
Yesterday W. H. Vianon purchased 30
beaver skins whicli were trapped near
Chilliwack this winter. Although
tho weather haa not beon cold, and
therefore against handsome furs, tho
skins are considered prime and of fine
color. As soon as the Indians begin
to return from thoir winter quarters a
lively time is expected in the fur market, as reports say trapping has been
fairly good during the last three
months. Deer wero unusually numerous last fall and the Northern Indians
killed immense numbers of them.

the trade demands. The consignees
wish us to correct the report in this

A Lost iMlac.
W. A, DoHaas, who is interested in
mines in the Okanogan country, will
leave for Alaska Thursday next.
Alaslca presents an alluring field to
prospectors, who believe it is exceedingly rich in tho precious minerals.
They constantly refer tu fhe great
Treadwell mines and works, where
thoro are 240 stamps under one roof.
Mr, Do Haas is backed by mon of
means aud is going on a general prospect ing tour, though he is in reality in
search of a lust mine. About a year
ngo Indians residing on the shore of
Norton Sound found two dismantled
sloops wrecked and containing nothing but about 300 tons of silver ore,
tlie orew having been lost, evidently,
in a storm that had prevailed shortly
beforo thoy discovered the Bloops.
They informed tho officers of the

cured specimens of the ore and sent
them to San Francisco. Tlio ore assayed $400 to tho ton. and samples
from it, as well as assays, aro now in

that not a stroko of work will bu dono

serosa the river, below the Bite of the

A Runaway Couplo Slopped.
This morning telegrams were received by Mr. Moresby and tho chief uf
police, from n man in Whatcom, asking
that his daughter Nellie Gallagher, and
a man named W. H. Hart be arrested
and detained. No explanation of the
nffuir was given, but the genoral supposition was that a runaway match had
taken place. Tho couplo arrived by
the Whatcom stage at 2 o'clock and as
they were stepping off the ferry steamer
Mr. Moresby informed them that ho
wished to speak privately with them.
After a ahurt confab, in whicli Mr.
Moresby explained the cause of his
action, the couple agreed tu go the
Colonial and remain without trying to
escape until tho arrival of Gallagher
Irom What com this evening. Constable Carty was alao in attendance
and escorted the couple tu the Colonial. Iu conversationwfth Hart, Mr.
Moresby learned the following particulars: Hart keeps a saloon in Whatcom and during two years, while his
wife was absent iu the East, Nellie
Gallagher acted as house-keeper for
him, and was grently esteemed by his
children. Mrs. Hart lately returned
home and Nellio left the house and
went to live with her father and
mother who keep a boarding houae.
Nellie claims that her father is a cruel
nnd unnatural parent, and was frequently in tho habit uf abusing her;
also that her mother winked at ascheme
whereby Nellie was assaulted by one
of the boarders, whose wrong intentions, however, werer jnot- successful. She escaped from her
home and fled to Hurt, who took
her in charge and left immediately
for Westminster for the purpose,
ho says, of placing her iu the Sister's
convent. Hart disclaims any intention
of an elopement, and Bays ho is only
acting out of kindness to the girl.
Hart is a man of about 45 yours of age,
and it must bo confessed looks like
anything but a gay Lothario, Nellie
is a plump and goad-looking little girl
of about 18 summers, and dues not look
in the least romantic. Both acted very
quietly when taken in charge and neither Boemcd to be greatly disappointed,
but Nellie showed the natural timidity
of her sex by edging up just a little
closer to her protector, aa if to be safe
should some greater evil befall. Tho
couplo were bespattered with mud and
showed evidences of fast driving aud
muddy roads. When tho horse thoy
started with gave out the couple waited
for the stage and made the latter part
of the journey in that conveyance.
Tho girl's father will arrtvo this
evoning from Whatcom and then his
Bide of the story will be learned, and
whith is certain to differ very materially from Hart's. Nellie has expressed
hor decided intention of not returning
home, and there is no law to compel
hor to do so, as she is free from her
father's control while in Canada, unless
au extraditable offunco ia laid against
her. The latter is not likely, and
some interesting developments are
likely to follow her fathers arrival.
section 11, range 2, Cowichan District,

Sentry Beyford alleges thst while
on duty on Sunday night at the powder magazine, Halifax, two shots were
fired at him, and that he fired three
shots at his would-be murderer as he
fled. Beyford wns removed tj the
hospital, where his index finger, which
had been struck by a bullet, was amputated. The military regard the
affair as a plot to blow up the magazine
with dynamite, which would have resulted in appalling disaster. The picket
fence was torn away several days ago,
and it is now believed this was dune bo
as to etiable tho fiend to roach the
Magazine and murder the sentinel.
