Tlio kangaroo is said to have got
its name in this way: Captain
Oook first discovered the animal in
Australia. When he inquired its
namo of a native the latter replied,
"Kanga-roo" whioh in theAustralian
language is "I don't know."
Son—"Papa, how do they oatch
lunatics 1" Oynioal father—"With
large straw hats and feathers and
whito dresses, jewellery and neat
gloves, my boy." Mamma—musingly—"Yes; I remember, that's how
I f'rossed before we were married.
Strikes are extending to the
churches. In a church in Edinburgh
tho Other Sunday the choir went on
strike, "their complaint being the
inconvenient and draughty seats
allotted to them." Some preachers
have good reason to strike, because
of the absence of drafts.
A Oanadian inventor is said to
have patented a process for ice
making, by which, according to tho
hopeful fiuder, "a year's supply" can
be made for seventy-five cents.
Whetherthe year's supply mentioned
is a year's supply for one person, or
a family of thirty-three persons, or
an ice-cream saloon in tho tropics,
or the whole world, we are not informed.
Americans aro not the only
people in the world who enjoy big
incomes. A report presented to
the Landtag on personal taxation
for 1889 discloses the fact that
Herr Krupp's income last year was
4,380,000 marks, or say, nearly
$1,500,000, while Rothschild comes
noxt, admitting an income of only a
few thousand dollars less. It may
interest tho Universal Peace Society
to know thnt one of these gentlemen
derives his income from tho sale of
tlio implements of war, and the
othor from loaning money to nations
that want to tight.
Two car loads of ejgs resigned
to local dealers arrived in Toronto
on Tuesday from the United States.
What is the matter with the Oana-
diun hen. Where is the market of
60,000,000 whioh was "hankering"
to the extent of 40 cents a dozen
for the Canadian egg. When the
American farmer ships his eggs into
Oanada becauso he gets a better
prico than in his own markets, the
theory whioh Mr. Erastus Wiman
held before Oanadian farmers to
tempt them into annexation to his
adopted country must have been
wild indeed. The Canadian hen is
still living, but the enticing tale
connected with it is (h)ended.—
Empire.
St. Paul grain men hurve^been
vexing their souls over a problem
touching a grain bin and contents.
It is this: Given a bin, dump into
it, separately, live distinct qualities
of wheat; open the spout at the
bottom and the query is, which layer
of wheat comes out first I The
uninitiated say at once, with a few
exceptions, "Tha first layer at the
bottom, of course!" W. A. Van
Styke was determined to get at the
facts, and watched the bin with his
eaglo eye very closely the other day,
after having caused a layer of barley
to be placed on top of several layers
of difiierent kinds of wheat. The
spout was opened and tho barley
came rushing out first—St. Paul
Pioneer-Prat.
Oolonel J.1. North, who is known
as "the Nitrate King," or "South
American Monte Oristo,"is dazzling
Loudon by the magnificence of his
entertaining, the cost of a fancy-
dress bull which ho recently gave
being estimated at $75,000. And
yet the Oolonel (his title is new, and
was acquired through becoming the
head of a volunteer regiment) was
thirty years ago a workman in un
agricultural implement factory at
Leeds. He was sent to South
America to put up machinery for
his employers, obtained control of
vast nitrate beds by government
concession, and mado his millions.
He now lives at a beautiful country
placo at Kent, England, and is at
the head of many money-making
ventures.       	
Thomas A. Edison, the great
electrician and inventor, met with a
severe accident recently, of which
tho fact has just leaked out, despite
tho efforts of the laboratory employes
to Buppross them. He was engaged
in making a chemical analysis,
adding a strong acid solution to the
substance under investigation, when,
without the slightest warning, the
mass exploded. The flames flashed
up in his faoo, singing his eyebrows
and burning his hair. Some of the
aoid struck him on the face and
eyes and caused severe and painful
burns. With great presence of
mind Mr. Edison plunged his head
in a basin of water and prevented
serious injuries; as it was, his face
nnd eyos wero muoh inflamed
at first, but since thon he has
steadily improved and now shows
but little effects of tho accident
Those familiar with tho facts say
that ho had a narrow escape from
losing his eyo sight,

WEAVER'S STRIKE ItAlSEl).
Fall River, Mau. March 28,—All
tho mills aro running this morning oxcept tho American linen mills, and
nearly ull with a full complement of
weavers, The linen milla were not
ready to start up ou aocount of the incompleteness of some ropaira to tho
macninory. It ia expected thoy will
bo ready to start to-morrow. At nearly all tho mills the weavers were j.lnd-
\y welcomed this morning, and were
givon their old looms. Somo exceptions, whioh caused considerable unpleasantness, occurred at Pocassett
Mill. About fifty weavers working on
fiancy gooda beforo the strike were
told thia morning their places wero filled and that if they wanted work on
print oloth looms they could have it.
They refused and all stayed out and
went over to tho weavor's hnll. They
Bay on tho looms offered them they
would earn a dollar and u half per
week less than ou faney goods, and did
not care to go back under a out down.
They will hold a mooting this afternoon nt Osborne's mill No. 2, About
45 old weavers refused to work, and at
some other mills individual cases are
reported. All these oaaea will be considered by the weaver'B committee nt a
meeting to-uight. There is n growing
fear that somo of thoao who have been
most active in conducting the strike
may bo blacklisted.

is transported gratis.
THE JESUIT BILL.
Ottawa, March 27.—The interest
iu tho debate on the Jesuit resolution
continues unabated, Tho galleries
wero again crowded to-day, Tho
speech of Mr. McCarthy proved to be
one of the most brilliant protests over
hoard in .parliament.
Mr. Dal ton McCarthy resumed the
debate on ■ tho JeBuit question. Be
roso, he aaid, with reluctance to address the Houso and thought it strange
that no member of the Government
had yot explained the reasons for the
allowance of the bill. It would have
boen a standing disgrace to the House
if no member had moved in the matter.
Colonel O'Brien deserves the thanks of
the oountry, if it was not too late to
disallow the Aot on constitutional
grounds. Ho could not regard the re-
marka of Mr. Rykert very seriously.
It aeomed atrange that Mr. Rykert
should have spoken aa he did and hinted that he did not propose to appeal
to his constituents again. Perhaps he
misunderstood Mr. Rykert, but the
fact seemed signiBcent. The Aot
should be disallowed whether the Legislature had authority to pass it or not.
It will not do  to ignoro  tho  post.
All these questions have fint to be
considered from a legal point of view.
The measure first came before the Minister of Justice before his repoit thereon waa submitted to the Dominion
Government. Tho disallowance of the
bill is a matter of publio policy. Mr,
McCarthy went on and read the recital
fn connection with the bill whioh ho
aaid was unheard of in the history of
British parliaments. The disgraceful
spectacle would show that the Jesuits'
estates for a century have belonged to
the public domain. The award is a
papnl gift. The conditions are that it
would be non-effective until approved
by Rome. The legislation is, therefore, dependent on the Pope. The
Act in affeot goes away from the purposes for which the estates were appropriated, and he oould only regard with
astonishment the lack of interest betrayed in the agitation. The award is
simply a misappropriation.
Ho then took up the question of the
estates uud denied that the Jesuits before their suppression hold their estates in trust for educational purposes.
In theso dnys it was a common tiling
for them to acquire property and goods.
Avarice wna their sin, Thia is a British country. By the fortunes of war
the greater half of North America pas-
sod into tho handa of the British
Crown. It was beyond all doubt the
privilege of the conquering race to in-,
truduce the Common Law of Canada.
This continued until ttie passing of the
Quebec Act*ltt 1774, whioh restored to
the Frenoh their civil laws. It will
not be denied that tho Jesuits at that
time were not recognized by the law of
England. He quoted from Blackatone
to support this. As the result of the
Common Law prevailing in Canadu,
the Jesuits had no existence in Canada.
Their properties were vested in the
Crown. A century later n Premier is
found humiliating himself by an appeal
to the Pope in temporal matters.
This raised a laugh, but Mr. McCarthy
retorted that it was no laughing matter.
Sir James Mnrryot reported on the
question of estates, and ao did other
great jurists. Every report was
against them. It was necessary to
have the Jesuits undisturbed until the
last member of the Order passed away.
Governor Murray in a proclamation
decrees that the Oatholie religion shall
be practiced so far aa is consistent with
the laws of Great Britain. Further instructions were given in 1755. The
law in those days practically forbid the
practice of the Catholic religion. Other
English lawyers of great ability declared that the lands of the suppressed
Jesuits were vested in the Crown.
Provision was mado for the support of
the Jesuits remaining in Canada after
the suppression. What was the outcome ot the Quebec Act in 1774 . A
year later Guy Carleton, the Governor,
received notice that the estates had
been confiscated and declared to be
vested in the Crown.
Mr. McCarthy said that he spoke as
a lawyer, quoting facts an he found
them. General Amherst at a later
date petitioned to be compensated out
of the Jesuits' estates. This showed
that they were Crown lands.
Sir John S. D. Thompson, Minister
of Justice, followed in a three hours'
speech, whioh is declared to be ona of
the greatest speeches ever heard in the
Canadian Parliament, which was remarkably moderate, in reply to the
supporters of tip resolutions. He
dealt on the question, in its legs! aspect, as well as from every other point.
Mr. McNeil supported the resolution. The debate adjourned at midnight. .

Btruckhim: "Around the shores there
grows a douse matting of tangled veg-
itation of the willow variety, which,
as far as could be seen from that point,
made a fringe of unbroken uniformity
completely around the lake. Fortunately thore was an opening through
tho sedge, and on pushing out and
taking a precarious stand on a slippery
stump n view of supreme magnificence
could be obtained. In the foreground
the blue and sparkling wnters of the
lako rippled and flashed in the sun
ligiit. Opposite was a thick wood
stretching .right up to the mountain
top; on the loft the great spurs of the
Coaat (?) Range, with their summits
and peaks slightly powered with snow,
formed a back-ground of marvellous
nnd entertaining beauty. Astoits qualifications as a pleasure resort there can
bo little question— it is a perfect
dreamland of benuty and few pleasures
can compare with that of merely standing at the margin of the water and
silently admiring the glorious prospect
of mountain and forest and lake. In
the Highlands of Scotland, in the Bernese Oberland, tho Draohhenfels, the
Norweigan fiords, there is not a scene
like this. Unfortunately the people
of the cities (New Westminster and
Vancouvor) scarcely know anything
about this gem of scenery that is so
close to thom. But when they do discover what a treasure they have, its
convenion into a pleasure and recreation park will quickly follow. It is
well worth a visit, even as it is at the
present time."

The short tlespntoh on tlio fourth
page of thia paper, to tho effect that
tho amend mortta to the city charter
hnvo been rend a third timo nml
passed in good shape, moans much
to tho royal oity, it means that nn
imperfect act in tunny respects hus
been so revised nnd amended ns to
be now its nearly perfect us possible,
and suited to the city's no-ids and
circumstances. It means that our
boundaries have beon very considerably enlarged, taking in all the tract
shown on the official map, und in-
' eluding a small portion of Browns
ville, on the opposite sido of the
river, ns well ns a tract of land
(comprising 640 acres) known ns the
"government reserve" on tho easterly end of Lulu Islnnd. Importnnt
as these "amendments'' are, section
50 of the amendments (which we
shall publish in full to-morrow) gives
tho city such powers and privileges
with respect to the Westminster
Southern Railway ns places that enterprise forever upon n sure and satisfactory footing for till parties concerned, and beyond the reach of any
quibbles or technicalities to disturb
or retard. Lack of space forbids us
going into particulnrs to-dny, but we
can congratulate the citizens, who
havo stood so nobly by the Westminster Southern sinco its inception,
that their troubles are fairly ovor,
the crowning act in n series of struggles and triumphs has been consummated, and the era of confidence nnd
great results has been fully inaugurated. Credit is due for this satisfactory issue to the citizens themselves, to our city council, nnd the
hard-working nnd faithful members
of our delegations, who for weeks
past have watched and furthered the
city's interests in tho provincial legislature nt Victorin, and the government are deserving of thanks for the
readiness with which they mot the
views and co-operated with those
who were urging -our • interests.
Great things are in store for the
royal oity, and a mighty stimulus
must soon animate our present satin
factory progress in every department, as tho result of our now
more than ever assured future.
After nearly a yenr of intermittent  and   lingering  illness,   John
Bright, ono of   England's   greatest
statesmen in his dny and generation,
passed peacefully away on Tuesday
night last, ub  the age of  seventy-
eight.    Hia  -.lentil'' was   not unexpected, by reason of  the severe illness undor which ho has been prostrated.   John Bright was bom at
Greenbank,   near   Bochdale,   Lancashire, on November 16,1811,  He
wus   brought  up as a Quaker, and
was at one timo the head of a cotton
spinning and manufacturing house
in Rochdale.   But it is as the great
Liberal statesman and popular orator that John Bright is best known
and will be remembered.   His name
has figured prominently and his influence has been most potent in the
political und social struggles nnd reforms  of  his country for the last
half  century.   When  the United
Corn Law Association was formed
in 1838 Mr. Bright entered heartily
into its plans, co-operating with the
celebrated Richard Oobden in that
memorable struggle on the people's
behalf, the  two  boing the leading
spirits in the league.   As the apostle
and champion of  free trade John
Bright  did    more   than   anyono
towards bringing about tho adoption
of   that   policy in   Great Britain,
Entering   parliament in 1843 as a
member  for   Durham, ho took an
nctivo part in tho mcasuros for froo
trade nnd had much to do with the
bill of 1816 for the immediate modification of the corn laws and their
total   repeal   at the end of  three
years.   In 1847 nnd again in 1852
he was returned to parliament from
Manchester.   Always a strong advocate of peace among tho nations,
and an abhorror of war, Mr. Bright,
in 1854, sanctioned a deputation of
Frionds to dissuade the Czar from
entering upon hostilities with Turkey, and n!so deprecated the policy
of   England   in taking part in tho
Crimean war.   In  1857 his opposition to tho wnr with China rendered
him unpopular with his constituents,
and he was defeated in Manchester
by a large majority.   He was, however, returned for Birmingham, and
vigorously urged   the passage of  a
vote of censure againBt the Palmer-
aton administration for introducing
the Foreign Conspiracy Bill, in consequent, of which the ministry resigned.   Shortly rfterward he made
a speech in favor of the reduction of
tbe British military establishment,
tnd condemning the policy of Asiatic
conquest   In 4660 he took a leading part  In  bringing about a commercial treaty with France.   During  tne American civil war Mr.
Bright  I Wed    tangly  with  tbe
Union, ind wpported its cause both
in and out of parliament.   In 1865
ho entered  upon  the agitation in
favor of tfcft extension of the elective
franchise, whioh finally resulted in
the passage of the Reform Bill about
two yoars later.   He alio urged the
Moewlty of td&cm in Ireland abd
the disestablishment of the Irish
Church, a bill for which passed tho
house in 1860. At the parliamentary election of 1868 a large majority
of Liberals were returned, the Beacons (iekl administration resigned,
ami in tho Gladstone ministry which
succeeded Mr. Bright occupied the
position of president of the board of
trade, being tho first Quaker who
ever held u seat in the British cabinet. In 1870, owing to ill-health,
he resigned his seat in the cabinet.
Having partially recovered his
health, he accepted, in 1873, the
position of chancellor of the duchy
of Lancaster, which he held until
the Liberals woro defeated in 18T4.
On the occasion of tho accession of
the Glndstono administration to
power iu I860 ho was re-appointed
to the same offico, which he resigned
two years later, and retired from the
cabinet, on account of dissonting
from tho Egyptian policy of tho gov-
ernmen which led to tho bombardment of Alexandria, John Bright's
memorable split with his political
chief, and life-long personal friend,
Mr. Gladstone, in 1886, on tho question of Home Rule for Ireland, made
n deplorable broach in the political
relations of tbo two great Liberal
statesmen, und did much to defeat
Homo Rule at the time. Since then
Mr. Bright hns belonged to the
Liberal-Unionist wing otthe Liberal
party, and has actively opposed Mr, Gladstone's Irish policy,
on the ground that it would lead
to a disruption of the empire.
Whatever may be thought of his
defection in this matter, John
Bright's eloquence, energy, ability,
probity, and uniform adherence to
principle, have placed him in the
forefront rank, not only as a Liberal and a British statesman, but as
one of the great and mourned for
ones of the earth. He hus served
his dny und generation well. Re-
quiescat in pace.
Professor Darwin recently deliver
ed at the Royal Institution of Great
Britain, a lecture on "Meteorites
and the History of Stellar Systems."
Tho lecturer, referring to the advantages now enjoyed by astronomers
from the application of photography,
said that we might reasonably hope to
obtain some information us to the
process of development of the stars
and planets. He then explained the
nebular hyphothesis of Laplace, who
supposed the solar system to have
originally consisted of a mass of gas
in rotation, As the gas cooled it
contracted and rotated moro rapidly,
until ut length it becamo so much
flattened that it could no longer subsist in a single shape. A ring was
then shed, und the contraction of
the central portion continued until
a second crisis arrived, when another
ring was detached. A succession of
rings was formed, and these coalesced subsequently into planets,
while the central portion formed the
sun. A recent plibtograph of u nebula in Andromeda, by Mr. Roberts,
was then exhibited. In it could be
seen the central condensation, the
successive rings, and planetary nebula* already formed. The speculation of Laplace appeared thus to be
actually proved. The truth of this
hypothesis involves the gaseous constitution of nebula*, but the recent
researches of Mr. Lockyer and other
considerations now render it almost
certain that the immediately antecedent condition of the sun nnd
planets wns not a gns, but that they
consisted of n swarm of loose stones
or meteorites, There is thus apparently an absolute contradiction between the nebular hypothesis and
the meteoric theory. Tlie object of
the lecture was, however, to point
out that these two viows may
bo reconciled with one another. Tho
lecturer then suggested that iu a
celestial nebula tho collisions of
meteoric stones may play the same
part as the collisions of gaseous molecules in ordinary uir, and that in
this manner a gaseous character may
bo imparted to a celestial nebula,
although it may not consist of gas
at all. Proceeding to oxamine the
details of this hypothesis, Professor
Darwin arrived at the conclusion
that the collision of meteoric stones
would bo sufficiently like those of
molecules to satisfy the conditions
of tho hypothesis, He maihtained,
therefore, that wo nre justified in believing in tho substantial truths of
the neubular hypothesis whilo still
holding thnt stellar nobulto consist of
a swarm of loose stones in frequent
collisions with ono another. In conclusion, he spoke on the zodiacul
light, on comets, and on shooting
stars as evidence of the continued
existence of meteorites in tho solar
system. These stones may bo characterized ns the dregs and sawdust
of tho system, the great majority of
stones having been absorbed in the
formation of the sun nnd planets.

In every city there are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in nil mntters of public
enterprise, whose record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, mnko them
objects of special note, not alone in
thoir homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have wo
in the subject of this sketch, Mr.
James Ounniughum established his
business in this city in 1862 and
has, through nil tho vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trado, maintained tho ovcfi tenor of his way.
His transactions havo increased
year by year, and tho circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widening nnd his tirm extending until he now controls a business unexcelled by any similar establishment in British Columbia, His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged nud appointed. All this space is filled
with n complote and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, houso furnishings,
iron pipo and fittings. This house
also manufactures' tinware of all
kinds and dots overy variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
house in tho trade which carries a
more complete stock or whose facilities surpass thoso of this establishment for supplying tho trade with
first-class goods nt lowest quotations.
The length of timo this gentleman
has been in business and tho success he has attained are better
recommendations than the loudest
praise we could possibly give. We
may mention, however, to our readers who have not yet become acquainted with this firm, thut none
in the Korthwest has a better reputation for fair und honorable dealing.

daihMto FOOD VALUES AND COST.
A Question of Vital Importance to
Largo. Families.
Tko Nuli-lUvo Qualities of Bed, Mutton,
Fork,   Milk   and  Choose-Kelatlous
They Sustain to Each Other ln
,   Point of Nutrition.
Tho practical question of tho hour with a
largo class of our peoplo is that of living,
writes Lyman F. Abbott in tbo Philadelphia
Prat; how to make tbe'money earned by'
daily toil go the farthest and afford the
growing olivo branches a nutritious, healthful and yot comparatively cheap food.
A food may bo cheap and yot bo dear. It
is this question of cheapness which con-
corns tho poor man moro titan ho often
realizes. A food that is ohoap arid wanting
ln nutrition may often bo tho costlier of tho
two whon the othor supplies in itself all tho
needed elements to sustain tbo various
functions of the system. In this connection it will bo of intorest to consider tho
relative values of certain foods and tho
relations thoy sustain to oach other in point
of nutrition and economy in tholr uso as
furnishing cheap and healthful food.
Tho poor man can uot afford to indulge|
his family in constant supplies of meat, bo-
cause, as prices range, ho can mako a small
outlay of his daily wages go farther in something else. And so from tho moatshop ho
flees to tho grocer's and invests in fine
flour, an accompanlmont of cheeso and
milk. Whilo beef affords a nutritious food
bo can not afford to indulge in it becauso
his pocket-book prompts aud experience
teaches him to. seek a moro economical
way to keep hunger from tho door and supply strength to muscles which provide, the
wherewithal to keep the family together.
If ho Invests ln sirloin steak he finds a dollar goes but a little way when ho parts with
It for four pouudB of meat.
Again, wo will suppose ho invests Ids
dollar in mutton,, and carries homo about
eight pounds of veal, at about the same
figures, or pork for two pounds more, or
milk at six cents a quart and cheese at four-
tecu cents a pound. Of tho latter commodities ho carries home five quarts of tbo milk
and five pounds ot cheeso. Now, which is
the bettor investment of tho laborer's dollar when ho considers tho relation of tho
several ingredients to animal nutrition and]
pocket-book economics?
For convenience we will arrange the]
nutritivo compounds of tho various substances according to tho following order:

Of the nitrogenous olements or flesh-forming compounds the beef contains just threo
times that of the milk, whilo tho carbonaceous or fat and heat-producing elements are
in excess in tho beef as four and two-
sevenths to ono. Tho solid constituents of
tho two lu one hundred pounds would bo:
In milk thirteen and in beef fifty, or about
one to three and live-sixths, It is thus scon
that it would tako about threo pounds
and thirteen ounces of milk, If both wero
expressed in pounds, to givo the same
amount of nutrition that is contained in one
pound of beef. A quart of milk, according
to an average of standard weights, will
weigh about thirty-eight ounces, hence tho
throo pints of milk by measure will weigh
a little loss than four pounds, representing
more than tho equivalent in nutrition for a
pound of clear beef.
How iB it with cheeso} As compared
with beef a pound of whole-milk cheeso
contains of nitrogenous elements ll>_ per
cent, more than tho beef and 1% per cent,
moro carbonates or respiratory and fat-
forming elements. Tho soliauc6ii&titucnts
of the two, on tbo basis of 100 parts, would
be: InchoosoOS, as against fiO in boef, reversing the order from tho former' comparison with milk, making a pound of
cheese worth one and a quarter pounds of
beef. But as thero is a quantity of saline
material in tho solids of tho cheeso let us
call the two equal in value in tho comparison. On this assumption, calling the beef I
35 cents a pound, cheese should be reckoned [
as worth tho same, whilo milk should bo
oounted at WK\% cents per quart. But mill.
can be bought for 0 to 8 cents a quart and
cheese for U to 16 cents a pouud, hence
beef, to represent tho equivalent, should t^
bought for 10 to 12 cents a pound.
If the man takes a mutton-chop ho gets it
for about twelve conts a pound, and while
no doubt it is the healthiest moat ho can
buy, it costs more in nutritious elements
than milk and cheese. Thoro Ib less water
In mutton than in beef, whilo in carbonaceous material it exceeds beef by ten per
cent,, but in nitrogenous compounds it is
somewhat poorer. As to the nutriment:
contained in the two meats, beef and mutton, tbey aro essentially tho same, and both
well balanced in pointof nutritious elements
and those principles which go to sustain
tho human system. But when It comes to
economy in food, to mako the most of the
purchasing power of a given sum, the products of tho cow surpass both. But in comparing mutton in the samp way tbat has
boen done with beef we find that it takes
about four pounds and four ounces of milk;
to represent the swno amount of nutrition
contained in a pound of clear mutton. This
would be a little over ono quart and six gills
of milk, by measure, as tlio equivalent of a
pound of mutton.'With cheese the equivalent is about one pound and three ounces of
mutton to equal ln nutritive value ono,
pound of cheese on the basis 1 havo assumed.
Carrying out the comparison, we see that
mutton at twelve cents a pound, making no
allowance for bono, would bo about equal in
point of cost of milk at six or seven cents n
quart and cheeso at fourteen conts a pound.
But tt should be taken into consideration
that iu analysis of meats tho clear flesh is
always used, which would odd considerably to the cost of the moat, probably nearly ono-half, whioh would augment tho
equivalent value of tho milk and cheoso accordingly, or te twenty-live cents a pound
for the cheese and 15 MO cents a quart for
milk.

What mi American Tourist Saw In the
Antipodal Wondor-Laml.
When I started from Lob Angeles, about
two years ago, says a correspondent of tho
San Francisco Call, it was not with the intention of exploring in tbls land of won tiers,
nor becoming ono of a surveying party.
What a storehouse of curioBitios Now
Zealand Is, Boiling lakes of sulphur, of
mud and of water, alongside of which, very
often separated by a wai 1 of rook scurcoly a
foot in thickness, aro to bo found pools of
ice cold water. Smoking volcanoes, everyday earthquakes, as the people hero coll
them; Bnow-clad peaks, magnificent waterfalls, groat precipitous mountains, towering thousands of foet into tho air and
nearly covered by splondld virgin forests
of rare und useful woods. Rich deposits of
a gum—known in the commercial world as
a kauri—aro scattered ovor largo portions
oftho north island; great fields of cool,
iron, copper, gold, silver, etc., aro lying
roady for the capitalist and the workman.
It struck mo as most singular that nature
should have so magnificently favored these
throe little islands—thousands of
hundred to llvo thousand feet So csc.llng
had becomo iho solution of its hoigli , und
so mnny uci'Sdcnta had occurred to udv-iiitir-
ous spii'lta in their endeavors to aoh'o the
mystery, that tho New Zealand Government, either becoming afraid of an International or intercolonial conflict, got in iho
othor day and spoiled tho fun by scndiijg
out a surveying party to get the fads and
figures and cut a track to tho falls at all
hazards. Thla was a mistake, for it lessened tho interest taken in New Zealand
which tho dispute bas kept at fever heat
for ovor a year,
Ou arrival at Milford Bound wo wero mot
by Mr. Sutherland, the discoverer of the
famous falls. To tourists and Now Zen*
london- ho is known an the "Hermit of Mil-
ford sound." Eleven years ago, accompanied only by his dogs, ho located here,
whoro lio has built a three-room cottage,
wliich ho kcops scrupulously clean and ln
applo-pie ordor. Tho kitchon occupies the
center room, his bedroom on tho right and
tho other always ready for any wanderer
wbo may happen along. Arouud the walla
of this curious dwelling are somo fair
sketches of tho mountain scenery, diuwn
by himself. Bottlos of minorals, f-cld
quartz, rubios, oto., oro neatly arranged on
shelves. Skins of raro native birds decorate and hide tho baroness of tho walls, mid
their beauty is enough to mako a lovor of
zoolutry envious. Sutherland is a Sootoh-
man and a decidedly eccentric character,
but lor all that a fund of information and
dry humor. Uo haa no lovo for tlio city
■■chaps," calling thom "ashfoltors." Tourists ho bos In groat coutompt, saying thoy
will take any thing thoy cau lift; photographers, who occasionally viBit tho sound;
lore spoken of as •■shadow-catcher-*."' .
The first stago of tlio journoy after leaving tho sound is doue by boat up the Arthur
river. For tho next two niljes u soi'los. of
unnavigiiblo rapids are pasbed un it iho
fora tree hut at thofootof .Lake A-.lais
reached. Again entering our canv;:-. lout,
wo had plain sallingfor throo miloa—the
length of tlio luko—passing through sopie
of tho most beautiful and grandest of
icenery. At tho upper ond of this hike
two largo rivers ontor, Ono was christened Walhohopa by tho chief of our party,
tho other Poseidon by Mr. Sutherland.
Getting out of the lake wo again encountered two milos of rapids up to tlm 10 by 12
tent Bore tho track follows the river for
six milos to tho blroh hut. Although now
but a milo from tho falls, it was a very
hard ono to walk. For tho full distanco a
great land-slldo had como down from the
mountain side, completely obliterating tha
track. Ico, snow, earth, atones and fallon
trees—many ovor three foot in diameter,
somo of which had boon snapped off and
brokcu to splinters—blocked tho path.
From a point about two miles below the
falls tho first glimpse is obtained. It Is not
until you aro closo to It that tho full height
and volume can bo seen, great trees aud
bushes intercepting tho view. The water
issues from a narrow defile between Mount
Sutherland ontho right and Mount Hood
on tho loft. From a little hill, appropriately
named Viow Mount, ono gets a comprphon-
Bivoviowof tho falls. Itls nownci-n ihat
tho water dashes over tho clilT in T.vce
grand leaps, and constitutes about .-:-.-.■'.iull
of thu m tiro volume of the Arthur-river,
Tho first leap Is ovor a dizzy uliit ii.io a
rocky basin 815 fcotbolow. Jumping forth
again, ib makes another leap of 731, foet_ and
then gooD tumbling and leaping in ouo wild
dash of 3HS feet into tho pool at the foot of
tho precipice. Tho total height Is exactly
1,004 feet, which is claimed to bo ouo of tho
highest waterfalls yet discovered in tho
world.
Tho effect of tho fall when tho sun is
shining Is indescribable. Rainbows of all
bIzos bung over Its surface. So immense Is
tho volume of water that ntn distance of
threo hundred yards your volcu i * drownod
by in ti-amcudoUB rftjir! Besides t.;o full a
mjjjjb natural shower-bath, two hun-
fchtgh. was discovered. 'fliis in sup-

Tho country around tho aauud is exceedingly ricli in minorals, several of our party
succeeding in picking up a low small gur-
jnetb and rubies. A vory fluo patch ol
asbestos w.ts also discovered. In ono of
tho rooky doUlos a rich vein of copper and
another of-gold-bearing quartz wus unearthed. Thoso, 1 am afraid, will never bo

'FLOWERS AND  BIRDS.
They Tako tho Places of Friends with
Busy Workltig-Olrla.
What cIusb of persons aro your bost
customers;" asked a reporter for tho New
Ycrk Mail and Express of a bird fancier recently.
" Shop girls, seamstresses) milliners aud
othor working women," was hiB unexpected
reply. "Rich folks buy tho parrots, educated canaries, the rare foreign birds nnd
tbe oxponsivo aquaria, but tho pretty
working-girls aro tho bost and steadfast
buyers of tho common varieties, and without their custom wo should faro badly.
Wo aro ono with tho florists in that respect."
" How do you mean!"
" Woll, just > you ask the florists—I mean
tho cheap sidewalk florists of tho market
and stroot corners—who aro their best customers, and yob will got tho same answer
that I have given you, I can't understand
It, eithor."
" Thoso pots and flowers," said a modost
working-girl to the reporter a half-hour
later," thoy cheer ub and we should foci
lost without them. Why, we can almost
always tell when ono of our companions is
going wrong, that is, coming homo lato,
becoming bold and gay, and entertaining
longings for dress and ornaments, by hor
giving away ber pots and plants or neglecting thorn."
Tho canary Is by long odds tbo favorite
pot with working-girls. Tho littlo sky-blue
nonpareil birds, as thoy aro called, love
birds, Java sparrows und others oro woll
represented, tiuleno pigs and whito mice
also occasionally receive thoir share of fostering attention lu those humblo homes. As
to flowers, tho hurdler, cheaper and prctlior
of pot plants are the most popular. Tho
geranium is tho most common; then comes
tho heliotrope, thon tho fuschia, ond they
also cultivate tho wull-llowor, tho prlraroBe,
several varieties of tho pink, tho oxalls or
wood sorrel aud whatever will thrive in ctr-
1 cumscrlbed quarters wltb limited caro. Tbo
working-girls aro often put to tliolr Ingenuity te hnvo tholr pets and flowers attended
to during their absence front homo in tho
pursuit of thoir vocation, especially in cold
woathor, when tho moro delicate specimens
nro apt te suffer severely in the lofty, unarmed tenements if not cared for. Sometimes ono who is too Ul to seek her daily
work, hut ablo to bo about within doors, will
minister to tho wants of a dozen or more of
such'possessions on behalf of companions
lodging in tho somo houso, Sometimes a
kind-hearted landlady will volunteer similar offices for a trifling reciprocation in tho
way of stitching, monding or of some cheap
but pretty worsted or cardboard ornamouts
for her vacant walls.

Tlie Mission Bridge.
In tho local house yesterday Mr.
Ladner gave notice that he will introduce a motion, with regard to tho
width of the draw in the proposed
bridge near tho Mission, requesting
the lieutenant-governor to call the attention of the Dominion government
tortus question, and urging that tho
bridge may be so constructed as not to
interfere with tho free and sufo navigation of the river. From the numerous protests against the present construction of the bridge it iB certain the
government will be forced to insist on
the C. P. R. widening the main span.
Efforts will not be relaxed until the
change demanded is granted.

A Rond toBnrnaby La_e.
We havo received a, coramuicntion
from Mr. Malcom Nicholson, of Matsqui, to the following effect: "Will
you please itifatm tho citizens of New
Westminster through your valuable
paper that they will alwiys (ihd a road
to Burnaby Lake through my place, as
usual, air, I told Mr. Woods, last fall,
when -surveying a portion of my place
whore it crossed tho old trail, that I
wonld always keep a read for the
public, and being one of the first that
took steps to petition Hon. John Robson, protesting against taking away
our rights, I thank tho citizens of New
Westminster in assisting me and others
wbo would have suffered from the
lowering of the lake."

A gang of CO men have been sent
by Mr. Jas. Leamy to the Nioomeokl
flats to cut a threo mile ditch for the
purpose of draining the water from
the proposed railway line. Tho gang
will be supplemented by 30 men next
weok. The flooding uf tho Serpentine
flats has been found to have been
largely caused by tho numerous beaver
dams alung the river, and a force of
men aro now at work removing these
obstructions. Grading ou the roadbed, botween Brownsville and the
hatchery is progressing favorably. The
work of grading round tho bluff above
the hatchery, the most difficult portion
of the contract, will bo completed in
about eight days, Mr, Leamy expects
to put 200 more men at work next
weok.

Police Court.
George Taylor had made many good
resolves and brokon them, but whon
he decided to keep Lent ho meant to
bo true to his word even if he had to
steal the fish. It was rather hard on
Taylor that Friday approached so rapidly and his massive money coffers
wero empty, with not even a aliurt bit
in his pocket to buy a dozen smelts.
He looked into W. H. Vianen's fish
market and thero espied a number of
beautiful salmon, one of whioh he slipped into an ompty sack, and, after
scratching n memo of the purchase on
a cake of ice, left the shop. Mr.
Vianen happened to observe the occurence and called a policeman to witness
the style of purchase. Taylor's explanation was unsatisfactory tu the
presiding magistrates, Capt.' Pitted-
daigh snd Mr. MoTiernan, whu sentenced him to threo months with hard
labor.

It was a Blast.
A number of people who happened
to be on Douglas street, between
Queens' Avenue and Montreal street,
early this afternoon, wore attracted by
the wonderful and surprising gesticulations of a man who wss making frantic efforts to got over a rather high
fence from a partially cleared lot. His
peculiar actions induced a gentleman
who was passing to enquire what was
tho matter. The man raised his head
in the air gavo a dozen prodigious
puffs and finally shot out the word
"tiro !" Thero wero no signs of fire
roundabout oxcept from a stump noar
by which was smoking, and as tho man
still continu'd his wild gesticulations and
appeared anxious to get away from the
spot, the enquiry was repeated. Raising his iirmsnnd thrashing tho air wildly
the oxcited man tried to find speech,
nnd everyone waited breathlessly expecting to hear something awful. But
just as he appeared calm enough to
speak a terrible explosion was heard
and a shower of stones, earth and
splinters raitiod down on the interested
group, causing a sudden dispersing of
those who a moment before were so
anxious to know what it was all about.
"It was a blast" roared the man, and
everyone within earshot agreed with
him.
