NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Iu u race between a zebra uud au
ostrich, held in Zanzibar recently,
tho prize was given the rider of tlio
zebra, although the ostrieh came iu
100 yards ahead. The zebra's j ickey
claimed that his rival won on a fowl
and tho judge sustained him.
A biography of the lute Emperor
Frederick of Germany will bo published in London shortly. It will
relate solely to his domestic life.
It is believed that his widow is the
author of the work. Her name is
appended to the preface. The profits derived from the sale of the book
will be devoted to u hospital for the
treatment of diseases of tho throat.
Tho Now York Herald is authority for the statement that not a
singlo cigar-maker in Florida has
been attacked with yellow fever,
and that Southern physicians recommend cigar-smoking as a preventive.
If it is a fact, says an exchange, it
is well worth knowing, and doctors
would do well to enquire whether
tobacco smokers enjoy immunity
from other diseases, such as smallpox.
An exchange says: Shakespeare's
advice to girls about the selection of
a husband is the best in print, without excepting poor Richard and
Hannah More. " Dear Kate, take
a fellow of plain and uncoined constancy, for he, perforce, must do
thee right, because he hath not the
gift to woo in other places; for these
fellows of infinite tongue, that can
rhyme themselves into ladies' favor,
they do always reason themselves
out again. What, a speaker is but
a prater; a rhyme is but a ballad,
a good leg will fail; a straight back
will stoop; a black beard will turn
white; a curled pate will grow bald;
a full eye will wax hollow; but a
good heart, Kate, is the sun and
moon, or rather the sun, und not
the moon, for it shines bright and
never changes, but keeps its course
truly."
Tho London Daily Telegraph has
rocently closed the correspondence
on the question "Is Marriage a
Failure V It received in all 27,000
letters on the subject, and the conclusion it arrives at is as follows:
"The oonsensus of letters is over
whelmingly strong against early
marriage. Our law ought, we think,
to forbid marriage to young men under 21 and to young women under
17. Among the working classes especially this would produce, we
think, an excellent effect, Then,
also, it is clear to our mind that the
law of divorce must be enlarged to
permit dissolution of marriage for
desertion, for lunacy, for confirmed
inebriety, for conviction of dis ._ce
ful crimes, as likewise for established
incompatibility of temper and temperament, such as a just and prudent judge would admit to be adequate. That the marriage service
as it stands calls also for alteration
has been abundantly demonstrated
by these letters, and the sooner his
Grace, the Primate, finishes with
the Athanasian Greed and turns his
attontion to passages in that service
which shock young minds nnd disconcert older onos, the bettor."
Dr, Bryco, secretary of the Ontario Board of Health, has been interviewed by a Buffalo reporter on
methods of guarding against the
spread of small-pox, and is reported
to have stated that it is impossible
to disinfect a house where small-pox
has beon save by the heroic plan of
burning it down, nnd that there is
littlo danger of infection until a patient roaches the pustular stage of
the disease. The Buffalo Evening
News challenges tho accuracy of
both those statements, and says in
regard to the first that medical experience has shown ugniti and again
that houses can be disinfected absolutely, and with reference to thu
second, that competent authority
asserts thnt small-pox is infectious
at nil stages. It adds that many
patients never reach the pustular
stage, the premonitory fever breaking tliom down so that they die before there is timo for tho eruption to
commence, It is of importance that
the point in reference to the danger
of infection from patients sho.ild be
absolutely determined, as Dr, Bryce's
theory, if acted upon, would, in tho
event of its boing incorrect, lead to
grave dangers. But in the meantime who can decide when doctors
disagree, for there is no doubt that
tho Buffalo critic was inspired by a
medical man.
Do not delay in getting relief for the
littlo folks. Mother Graves' Worm Ex-
terminator is a pleasant and sure cure.
If you lovo your child why do you let it
suffer when a remedy is so noar at hand ?

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
TUB ATLANTIC SERVICE,
London, Oct. 17.—Tho 2'imes continues to publish lettors pointing to the
importance of the coming decision of
the Canadian government respecting
the Atlantic mail cervico. Undoubtedly thero is a growing opinion that unless Canada initiates an Atlantic service
equal to tlio New York service bIio
must fail in her efforts to establish a
route to eaBt via tho C. P. R. It is
slated to-day that negotitntiona are
proceeding for a Canadian Pacific mail
service to Australia. It is reported
that the promoters expect on imperial
subsidy equal to that granted to the
eastern lino in addition to a joint colonial subsidy of fifty or sixty thoutand pounds. This is probably premature, but it iB pointed out that unless the Atlantic section of the through
route can be completed as speedily as
by the New York service, Canada will
be unable to compete with the existing
routes to Australia.
THE HIVES NILE.
Lonoon, Oct. 17.—There is a fust
growing fear among the Egyptian natives that the preient low stago of the
Nile, unprecedented in recent years,
ii due to the machination! of the Mahdi. It is argued that tho ancients
wero fully aware that it was possible
to deflect the course of the Nile, and
in support of this argument the exponents of this theory quote Ezekicl, 29
ch. v. 3 and ch. S v. 11, and Isaiah in,
v. 5, threatening tho destruction of
Egypt and tho turning ol her waters
from their courses. It is further alleged that tho king of Abyssinia in 1704
threatened a Turkish Pallia at Cairo to
avail himself of hii power to turn
the Nile from the course at some point
in an unexplored region through which
the great rivor runa and many persons
not sharing the fanaticism of the Mah-
di's followers aro inclined to believe
that he too has discovered the place
snd the means of putting Egypt to
death slowly by drying up her fountains
of life.
TYRANNY  CAUSED HIS DEATH.
BacssEis, Oct. 17i —The official account of the death of Major Bnrttolot
haa been received, which gives tho following particulars: Major Barttelot
had become exceasivcly annoyed at the
din caused by Temas attached to' the
expedition in tho capacity of porters,
etc., practising singing and drumming
at the early hours of the morning and
late in the hours of tho evening" On
the morning of July 10th, in spite of
the attempt of Captain Bonny tu dissuade him, he proceeded along to the
tent whence came the sounds of drumming. Shortly afterward a shot was
heard, and Major Barttelot's body waa
found in front of the hut with a bullet hole in hii breast and hia clothing
near the wound burned with gunpowder. Professor Jamieton hearing
of the ahootiug next day, returned to
Major Barttelot'i camp but found that
the natives had departed taking with
them the stores. Mr.Jamieson then
retracked his route to Stanley Falls
leaving Captain Bonny at •Arurimi.
Tippo Tib, the report sayi, wa! intensely grieved at the death of Major
Barttelot; he had often, ho said, warned him (Barttelot) against his excessive harshness to the natives undor
him and prodicted dire results of his
persistent overbearing and even brutal
practices. Another rolief expedition
is regarded as almost impossible.

Children Cryfor Pltcher'aCastorla $ail!* $ritiah tSolnmbitin
Tk.radar It.iI.i. Oel. 1!. IMS.
Hardly less atrocious and equally
mysterious and unsolvnble with the
fiendish Whitechapel murders is the
diabolical Gait (Ont.) candy poisoning ease. According to a despatch
published in this paper over a week
ago, there arrived, on the evening of
the'4th nut., at the Gait postoffico,
three separate packages, post marked
Toronto and addressed to Mrs. John
Oherry, Miss May Lowell and Mn.
Ridley, wife of Rev. John Ridley, of
the English church. All three, as
wu subsequently ascertained, contained chocolate oandies into which
strychnine had been inserted. One
of Mrs. Cherry's children, little
Met* Oherry, died from eating the
chocolate!, and three other children
became ill with symptoms of poisoning. As wai natural, this startling
incident created intense feeling in
Gait, and, in fact, throughout eastern Canada generally, which is by no
moans being abated as tbe investigation proceeds. It seems very difficult to get hold of a definite clue or
to conceive any motive for such
a dastardly attack upon the
lives of innocent people. Some dark
secrets evidently remain to be unearthed and the denouement, when
it dees come, promises to discount
some of the deep-dyed plots of the
stage. An important discovery has
already been made, namely, that the
box containing the candy addressed
to Mrs. Oherry, although post
marked Toronto, came originally
from Gait, thus tracing the murderous villain to the near vicinity of his
victims, and proving that the posting at Toronto, by an accomplice,
was merely a blind to baffle investigation and put the officers of the law
on a false scent. A late number of
the Toronto Empire, in the course of
a lengthy report of the investigations
into this strange case, throws out the
following suggestive and sensational
hints: " Another of the interested
parties * * * ■ communicated
some startling information to the
Empire correipondent, but it being
in the interest of justice to withhold
main facts for a short time, this information cannot at preient be published. It is sufficient to say that if
this party be correct a thrilling denouement is not far off. Very few
days will suffice to prove or disprove
the accuracy of his views. It only
remains to verify certain facts, and
the end .will, he claims, have been
reached when certain parties, against
whom not a breath of suspicion has
ever been pointed, will be placed
upon trial lor their lives for as fiendishly a contrived plot as has ever
been recorded in the annals of criminal juriiprudence. Parties—for
there is more than one interested—
as thoroughly conversant with the
details of the every day life of the
intended victims and the purpose of
the crime, in so far as two of tho
parties are concerned, is clearly indicated. The person who gives information is considered to be a
shrewd, clever man, who usually
knows whereof he speaks, and who
ii in a better poiition to obtain inside facts than any one interested in
clearing up the mystery." That the
mystery may be speedily cleared up
and swill) punishment meted out,
wherever it may fall, must be the
universal desire, and will be awaited
with interest by all.
crat ticket in the state shall have
been elected it will vote " solid " for
Cleveland and Thurman; if the Republican ticket, it will vote for Harrison and Morton. It must be remembered, however, that there is no
law compelling an elector to vote
with his ticket; he may, if he choose,
vote for the candidates of another
party, but it is sufficient to say that
he never does. Good care is always
taken to place men in the college of
whose loyalty to their party there is
no doubt, but even should an elector
feel inclined to desert his party at
such a time he would doubtless find
the experiment a dangerous one in
more ways than one. The ballots
cast by the electors in oaoh state are
transmitted under seal to the president of the senate at Washington,
and that official in presence of congress assembled opens and counts
them. The person having the greatest number of votes for president he
declares duly elected, if such number
be a majority of the whole number
of electors appointed. If no person
have such majority, then from the
persons having the highest numbers,
not exceeding three, the house of
representatives immediately chooses
one for president by ballot by states.
A similar method is followed in the
case of the vice president, except
that where a ballot is necessary tho
number of candidates taken from
the list is only two, and the vote is
taken in the senate, a majority of
the whole number of senators being
necessary to a choice. On March 4
inauguration takes place. As the
tickets elected in the various states
in November are morally certain to
vote " solid " in tho college, the proceedings on the second Monday in
January are purely formal, and the
result of tbe popular vote is a sure
indication of the final result. The
number of electors in the college, as
at present constituted, is 401, and
201 votes, therefore, ere necessary
to a choice. Certain states are usually conceded to either of the two
great parties. The Democrats, for
instance, are secure in the southern
states, which gives them 153 votes
in the college, while the states which
are ordinarily counted safe for the
Republicans have 182 votes. This
leaves the Democrats 48 votes, and
the Republicans 19, to make up
from among the doubtful states. The
latter are New York, with 36 votes;
Indiana, with 15; New Jersey, with
9; and Connecticut, with G. It is
on these doubtful states,- of course,
that the result really hinges, and,
with the assistance of the foregoing
statement of the case, the reader
with a penchant for solving riddles
and balancing nice probabilities
may, perhaps, be able to satisfy himself as to which candidate for the
first office in the land " will come
out ahead.
Although not pining for citizen
ship in Uncle Sam's domains, we
cannot help taking a friendly interest in the " sayings " and " doings "
of our big neighbor to the south
ind in view of the foot that a presidential campaign is now in progress
down there, an explanation of the
fearful and wonderful morfu* operandi
by which the ingenious Yanks make
t practical application of their preferences for president and vice-
president cannot fail to be of interest
to most of our readers. It may not
be generally known that the election
ii not by popular vote, The vote
out on November 6th next will be
for memben of an electoral college,
which in its turn, on the second
Monday in January, will proceed to
elect the president and vice-presi

senators, but the number of its
representatives in the house is proportionate to iti population, excluding Indians not taxed. -The states

which have three each. New York

tlma;22ml OLD MEN OF THE MAIMYING SORT.
Some EoWMkaWo   Tnstunccs   of   PatriarchsWith Connubial Wcaltiicsses.
"When is a man too old to marry!" is
qijtte as interesting as the question,
"When Is a girl too youngf"
I must leave to pays-tola--; I sts to discuss
how far the chances of life are shortened
when December, weds May, and expects
in May anything moro than a nurse,
though, In passing, I may observe that I
have noticed several such marriapes in
which the funeral followed suspiciously
close to tho wedding.
■Without going back to the timo when
"Jarcd lived 1C2 years nnd be^ut Hunch"
thero are several instances on record of
modern patriarchs who became proud
and happy fathers at the time when they
should ho thinkingabout shuffling off this
mortal coll.
There was thnt stout Salopian, old
Parr, for example, who married at 80,
and had to do peimuco In Alderbury
Church for an Intrigue with Catherine
Milton, when he was a sprightly masher
of 105 summers.
If Lord Lyttlelon is to bo believed
Parr had a rival In t lit- Vale of Festlnlog,
in tlio person of, an old Welsh farmer,
who when he died hit:) 300 liiie.il descendants, and whose j-(i;:ngest son was 81
years younger than Ins oldest.
I fancy this man must have "been of tho
samo family as a certain Alderman
Hookes of Conway, who is described in
his epitaph ns the forty-first child of his
father, and hlmseUihe father of twenty-
seven children.
My own Impression Is that the Welsh
bonier is the pni'iulise of old men, tho
"Gimul Old Man" being only the most
conspicuous union--**.ninny.
Samo years ago I .spent a Sunday Ip tho
veryiiest finrish to Hawarden. I dined
Willi A middle aged man whoso sons wero
fi'iit growing to manhood and then
walked over to his father's house to tako
tea.
The venerable old gentleman, who wore
a headgear .something-like Oliver Goldsmith'.-*, was nursing an infant 3 or 3
years old on his knee.
'•In that your youngest?" I asked of my
middle aged friend,
"Oh, dear no," hi* replied; "that Isfliy
little brother."—London Echo.
FIRE   DRAWINGS.
Amuslug Scientific I's-pciiiiioiit-Ifc is
Easy nnd Costs Next to Nothing:.
Avery amusing and scientific oxperl*
ment may he performed by taking asiiHi-
rated solution of nitrate of ptittisli (saltpetre), and with a quill pen or fine brush
drawing any picture, design or words upon a pieco of white, absorbent paper. The
lines should be kept away from, each
other, aud the entire subject coarsely
drawn In outline.
When dry the lines will be nearly invisible; but if one of them be touched
with the glowing end of an extinguished
match, a spaik of lira will run through
tho paper, following the lines already
traced, and cutting out tho design as if
with nn Invisible knife.
This experiment is explained by the
chemical constitution of the saltpetre.
This salt contains u large amount of oxygen, so loosely combined that It readily
leaves the nitrogen and potasb.and unites
with the carbon of the paper when heated
to the point of ignition.
The heat developed by the combustion
Is not sufficient to ignite tho pnper.except
where it has been saturated with the oxygen-giving salt, and so the spark of fire,
which Is really only an indication of a
violent chemical reaction, follows theliucs
previously traced.
If an actual flame was brought iu contact with the paper, of course the whole
would be consumed; bnt the heat of tho
glowing charcoal Is just sufficient to start
the combustion!-, bytbe aid of the oxygen
in the saltpetre.—Popular Science News.
CURIOUS   EXPERIMENT.
On* That Would Amuse the Family or a
Domes tie Party.
Take a water flask, or a wide-mouth decanter or bottle, hold it in a horizontal
position, and place a small cork in tho
neck.
Ib will then seem an easy matter to
blow the cork Into the bottle, but upon
trial it will bo found almost impossible to
do ao, ns the harder one blows tho more
forcibly It is ejected out of tho bottle.and
Into tbe face of the experimenter.
Tbe explanation of this peculiar behavior of tho cork is very simple.
Tho bottle is already full of air, so that
no more can be blown into it; aud the
only effect produced by blowing is to
compress the air already inside.
When tbe pressure is removed, the air,
beiug elastic, expands again quickly, and
in so doing forces tbo cork out of tho
neck,apparentlyiua reverse direction to
tbe current from the lungs of the oxperi-
menter.
Tbe neck of the bottle must bo perfectly
dry or the cork will adhere to it, and interfere with the success of the experiment,   .

A Mystery Explained.
A sensible mother reads a child's story
paper regularly to her littlo daughter,
nud most of the tales are continued from
week to week,
The other day the littlo ono heard the
expression "writer's cramp," and asked
what It meant.
"Itls a stiffening or cramping of the
fingers, my dear," wns the reply, "Peoplo
who write a great deal ofteu get it and
havo to stop writing for a while."
"Oh!" said tho little miss, ns a great
light broke upon hor perceptive faculties,
"that's It, is it? I've often wondered why
the writers of thoae nice stories always
stop In such interesting places."

Scrofula
Is ono of tho moat fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often Inherited,

and, in somo coses, .Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of tho blood. This disease can be
cured by tho uso of Ayer's Sarsaparilla.

The Crofters.
In reference to a despatch in theso
columns, yesterday, from London, England, announcing that a number of
leading British Columbia canners wore
arranging to bring out 120 Crofter
families to supplant the Indians and
Chinese in the canneries, a representative of Thb Columbian intot-viewed a
number of the largest salmon packers
to-day for the purpose of ascertaining
the worth of the despatch. Without
exception they all denied any knowledge of the reported scheme, and are
decidedly averse to it. They have enquired into tho adaptability of, nnd in
several Instances have been in contact
with, the crofters, and have concluded
that these people would not be suitable
for salmon fishing in British Columbia
and that they would never be able to
supplant the Indians, who are the best
fishermen on the coast. The Indians,
the*/ say, have been brought up to the
fishing from childhood, and thoroughly
understand the smallest details of tho
business. In fact, they declare the
scheme to be impossible aud without
foundation, and one that can never be
realized on the Pacific coast.
Tbe Sir. Duniriiulr.
The sir. Robert Dunsmuir, owned
by Capt. Rogers, remodelled and re*
built and practically a new boat, is ex*
pected to leave for Westminster on
Friday. The steamer, formerly a side-
wheeler, has been transformed into a
twin screw propeller, and hor old engines replaced by compound tandem
engines of 120 horse power, built by
tho Albion Iron Works Co. from plans
suggested by Mr. W. A. Russell,
steamboat inspector. A speed of ten
miles per hour is guaranteed. The
steel boiler is as good ns new, having
only been in uso about three years.
By tho alterations to the Dunsmuir
her carrying capacity has been increased 60 per cent. Almost all the woodwork is new, including the rails, sides,
cabins and fittings throughout. The
cabin deck has been extended about
seven feet forward, and every improvement that would increase her utility or
comfort has been made. Yesterdsy
afternoon the new engines started for
the first time and worked splendidly
from the moment the steam was turned
on. The new Blake air purnp was also
tested and was found to give entire
satisfaction. The Detroit lubricator, a
very unique and convenient mechanical device, is attached to the engines
and is found to answer tbo purpose
perfectly. It consists of a small oil
tank, with which a small ateam pipe
connects. The pressure of the steam
forces a single drop of oil out of the
tank into the cylinder, the automatic
oiling being either fast or slow, ns desired. The Dunsmuir resumes her
place on the Westminster, Nanaimo
and Comox route next Wednesday.—

A Clever Capture.
Early last spring an Indian named
Jimmy, from Spuzzum, severely cut
and stabbed a Lytton Indian named
Charley, and a warrant charging him
with cutting and wounding with intent
to murder was issued against him. This
occurred at Vancouver nnd Mr. Moresby, governor of the provincial gaol,
took an active part in trying to secure
his arrest. Jimmy escaped before the
warrant was issued and no trace of him
could be found or knowledge of his
whereabouts learned so well did he
cover his tracks. Mr. Moresby had
never seen Jimmy and his only chance
of identifying the rascal was from the
description obtained from other Indians. This morning while the police
court was in session Mr. Moresby, as
usual, dropped in to observe the pro*
ceedings nnd his attention was directed
to the Siwash in the box, charged with
drunkenness and assault, and who
favored the description of the Indian
connected with tho Vancouver stabbing
affray. A glance at tho police court
record showed the prisoner's name to
be Jimmy, which decided Mr, Moresby, and, as the Indian stopped from
the box a free man he arrested him on
the charge mentioned above. Jimmy
was surprised and showed signs of objecting, but he was quickly transferred
ton cell in the lock-up, where he is
now detained. Further enquiries by
Mr. Moresby among the Indiana present proved that the right nnn wus
caught. The case will oitthe up fnr a
hearing to-morrow* morning at the police court. This olever capture reflects
the highest credit on tlio ability of Mr.
Moresby, but it is not by any means
tho first case worthy of mention in
which this untiring and zealous officer
has distinguished himself.

*' A New York firm are about to begin to handle in New York Oregon
ci-dtir shingles. Of course this means
tint thu shingles aro to bo shipped
something liko '1,500 miles, but the
dealers aro confident that the shingle
commend itself to the public, nnd that
it can be successfully sold in competition with shingles not bo good, which
may be manufactured nearer the field
of consumption. The Oregon cedar
shingle as nearly approaches perfection
as anything in the cedar line that is
made, and it need be no matter of surprise if it makes headway among tho
purchasers, even in the New York
market."
The above, from the Mississippi Valley Lumberman, will give some idea of
whut can be done iu shipping British
Columbia shingles eastward. The
British Columbia shingles are equal iu
every respect to the Oregon article,
and if the latter can be sent to New
York, British Columbia shingles should
bo able to find a profitable market in
Eastern Canada. No doubt all that is
required is a reasonable rate of freight
from the C. P. R. British Columbia
cedar shingles now find a ready sale all
over Manitoba and the territories.—

Steamboat Liquor Selling.
We have received a communication
—anonymous with the exception of
initials—addressed to "up-river settlers," and asking them how long they
are going to submit to the practice of
tho river steamboats selling liquor at
the landings. The writer states, among
other things, that the recent murder
near Stave River is attributable to
liquor procured from this source. This
may or may not be the case. Steamboat liquor, of course, is neither better
nor worse than the article obtained on
shore, nnd in certain coses will produce
the same results. It is a matter of
history and every.day experience that
alcohol precipitates tho worst passions
in many men, and thus becomes responsible for a great many crimes that
would not have been otherwise commit*
ted, besides doing untold mischief
otherwise; but its sale, both on land
and water, is overwhelmingly sanctioned by the people of this province,
through their representatives—as has
been demonstrated time and again—
and a considerable change must tako
place in public opinion before any adequate remedy can be hoped for. It
does seem unjust, though, that certain
communities who have vetoed the
liquor business within their own
bounds should have the evil brought to
their doors in the manner indicated by
our correspondent. This iB a grievance of long standing, and, owing to
the nature of the case, we are afraid it
will be difficult to draw such u line as
may effectually put a stop to the evil
complained of. However, if the communities direct!*' affected are sincere in
their opposition to this practice, they
will leave no stone unturned to do
away with the evil, and they will havo
the sympathy of right-minded people
in their efforts. We would respectfully
ask our correspondents, in writing articles for publication, to write more
carefully and coherently, and to inclose
their full name, even if they do not
wish it published.
