London, Feb. 7.—An explosion occurred to-duy nl a colliery at Abessy-
chiiii, iu .Monmouthshire, ten miles
northwest of Newport. Three hundred
miners wero imprisoned, aud for several
"hours no communication could be had.
Tho cause of tho explosion wus thu Hooding of tbo pits adjacent to that in whicli
(he explosion occurred, liy thu Hooding
of these pits the gas was dislodged and
forced into these pits whom work was in
progress, and there it was ignited and
exploded. There must hnve been u grent
quantity uf gas, as thu explosion
bud tremendous force, ft was beard nt
u distance of a milo. All tbe gearing in
tbo shaft wns thrown into the uir as if
from tliu mouth of a volcano, aud simultaneously a vast bright volume of Hume
shot up and wns followed bv u dense
heavy column of smoko. Thu flrst
parly of rescuers organized, advanced
to penetrate the 'pit through the old
working. Tbey got. far enough tobo
ablo to see groups of the dead; but they
cuuld not reach them, und woro compelled to retrace hy thu suffocating
volumes of smoke thnt arose. Upon the

lho smoke searchers went down tbe

of the cutnstrophe. Thoy rescued
a large number of miners yet
alive, but nil vury hudly burned.
They brought out 00 dead bodies nearly
all so mHtiluted that tho recognition of
their identity is impossible.   The latest
estimate of the deed is 150.

It I-Mel til I Inn lu iCnglamt
■ Nmv Yoiik, Fob, ((.—-The 7'tiM«i" London cables says that the ru|Mirt tlmt
England wuh about to lake Ihu lirst
steps hi hi-tiiotiiHism is confirmed by information wbilih litis reached its corres-
piiiidciit. Four million sterling of .l'l
silver notes have been or nre being
printed, ami those ilo not follow Mr.
Windom's Idea of being based ou bullion, but on the foundation of minted
coin. Tho Government will make profit
bv this of nearly JIT. per cent., certainly
amounting lo over X1,1100,000 sterling.
Tlio prevailing impression is that Mr.
Goseheit will utilize this tu cull in the
present lurge stock of underweight
sovereigns wtth which the hanks uro

BRITISH   COLUMBIA Flit.
The Best General Purpose Wood iu
the World is Proved by Competitive Tests.
For Bridge and Car Building; Purposes it Is Unexcelled in Strength
and Durability.
British Columbia Red Cedar Remains
Sound for Forty Years Exposed
to All Weathers.
lu ou ant ity, quality nnd general utility, the Douglas Hr of British Columbia
stands thu acknowledged king of ull merchantable woods. In every tesL thut
has been mudo botween il and other
woods the Douglas Hr bus always come out
victorious. Where strength, bounty of
grain, uiul lightness combined are ru
quired, (his noble wood never fails to he
the chosen article, uml the leading huu
her dealers in all the large cities of the
cast Hnd thut the demand for it becomes
goneral when once its great usefulness
is known, and they are consequently obliged even now to keep a stock on hand.
It is u safe prediction thut u few yenrs
hence tbu Douglas Hr will hu uddud to
nil quotations in the eastern lumber
markets. Of course this will not be until freight rates ure so reduced that the
lumber cun be lnid down nt a rensonnble
cost—the present rntes militate strongly
against an iiiunedial ly large market for
it. But notwithstanding the manner in
which the Douglas Hr is handicapped, it
still finds its way into all the important
cur manufacturing companies in America—a class of work wliich requires the
very strongest and best wearing kinds of
timber. Tho Canadian Pacifio Railway
Car Works iu Perth and Montreal use
the Douglas fir for ear sills and frame
work; so does the Crossen Car Works
of Kingston, Ont., and the great Barney
& Smith Car Manufacturing Co., ofJDuy-
tou, Ohio. Many million feet of this
lumber is used annually by these companies, and they all pronounce it tbe
linest car timber iu the world.
The strength of the Douglas Hr is surprisingly great, aud tho old idea thut
ouk wus lhe strongest and most lasting
of all woods is completely exploded by
recent tests of this wonderful timber.
The English Admiralty test gives tho
Douglas fir the greatest tensile strength
of any known wood oxcept oak. The
Northern Paeille Railway Co.'a teats,
give Douglas Hr tho greatest resistance
to breaking strain, and pronounce it the
best bridge timber in the world.
TboCanudian Pnciiic Pnllwuy bridges
through the mountains aro constructed of Douglas flr, and are acknowledged to be uuequullcd iu strength uud
durability by any similar structures in
the world. Tho Imperial Government

KXl'KKT EVrUKNOK.
The senatorial committee ou relations
with Canada met nt Tacoma Mny 24th
of last year. Among tliu other witnesses
who testified wub Edwin G. Ames, assistant genernl manager of the Puget
Mill Co.'s mills al Purl Gamble, Port
Ludlow nnd ITtsulndy. British Columbia, ho said, has it finer, softer grained
lumber thun Pugot Hound, und one thut
flnds u quicker sale. To compote with
thom tbe Pugot Sound mills hud to pick
their lumber in grndes. The tariff koops
British Columbiu lumber out of thu
United Stales market und enables the
Pugot Sound mills locompole with them.
If thn capital now invested iu the conl
and lumber industries on Puget Sound
was transferred to British Columbia,
Washington Territory, on the Sound,
wuuld bu a dry place nnd the uffuct
would be paralytic, as theso wore tho
only producing industries at present.
Mr. Ames concluded hiB ovidence by ex-
pressing a strong aversion to the annexation of British Columbiu with its superior advantages.
Oapt, J. H. Lihby, of tho Tacomu
mill, another witness, suid the quality
uf timber improved us one travelled
further north, and in British Columbia
they wore ns well supplied with lumber
ns Paget 8u\ind,nittaiieirt)U(tlituaveraged
better. Ho admitted, in conclusion,
that it would bu ruinous lo the lumber
interests uu Puget Sound if British Columbiu timber was admitted free of duty,
It will thus bo noticed that all
evidonco goes to show that the Douglas
Hr of British Columbia is the
best nud most marketable lumber in the
world. Its durability, oven whon exposed to all the variations in weather
and temperature that this climate is
noted for, is really wonderful. Thu
O. P. ii. bridge Inspector made several
examinations lust year uf burnt timber
thut hnti lain on thu ground for 40 yours,
and (uu in I that when thu burned portion was removed thu wood wus just
us sound and useful ns nowly
seasoned limber, Ju making new streets
in Westininster lust fall the stumps uf
trees on Queen's nvenuu, which had
boon cut down u quarter of n century
ago, wore found to be as sound as over,
und could uiily be removed by blasting
with heavy chnrges of dynamite. Exposure tu thu air has very Iill lo effect on
thu Douglas Hr. Willi ull this irrefutable testimony it is useless to go fur
ther, us British Columbia's claim to po
sensing tlie finest timber in the world is
unquestioned nnd unchallenged.
imiTInll  OOM'MIIIA   CKI-Ap,
Tliu red cedar (Thuya gigaMea) of
British Columbiu, comes uuxt in importance nfter the Douglas flr, but the
time is rapidly approaching when it will
be fully us well known uud appreciated
both in the home uud foreign markets
us the latter. For inside finish the
British Columbia cedar is unequalled hi
color aud beauty of grain, und some
handsome and striking ellects can be
produced by the use of this wood, Today some uf the most palutiul residences
in Canada aud thu eastern states uro
finished iu British Columbia red cedar,
and with excellent effect. It is susceptible uf a high polish, which, apart
from its rure and beautiful grain, inukus
It ull the more valuable for panel work
and ceiling. It is durable beyond belief,
und is exceptionally easy to work, lu
common uses It ia manufactured into
doors, Bushes and shingles, und an extensive market has already beeu found
iu thu Northwest Territories and the
eastern provinces for these lines, and
the demand Is constantly growing.
Shingles cut from the red cedar uro absolutely free from knots, and thev
neither curl, warp or split, aud dampness hus little perceptible effect un
them. For the sume roasous the wood
is particularly adapted tu the manufacture uf siish nnd doors. Furt Nesqu'ally,
built by the Hudson Bay Co. in 1841,
was covered with split cedar shingles,
whieh are still Bound. Roofs laid UO
years ago iu Westminster, und for many
years covered with moss, have never
leuked and appear little the worse for
wear. Tlie red cedar has alwavs been In
great favor with the Indians, who hollow their canoes out of the wood, because
it ia ao light, splits so true nnd works so
easily. The early inhabitants of Queen
Chnrlotte Islands built their houses
from tlie red cedar, they beiilgablc even
with the rude tools then In use among
them to split the logs to any thickness
required. It is un invaluable timber for
tho many purposes mentioned, and it is
bound to extend until it is found on
every market on the continent.

The Truth at Laat.
London, Feb. 5.—A private letter from
Vienna states that tho emporor is rapidly
growing feebler. He talks of an immediate abdication und of retiring to a
monastery. Tlie terrible story that was
at flrat only whispered with the greatest
secrecy is now, in nil its aggravated details, common property m the Austrian
capital. All wofl-inforniod people now
know that the young buroneas with
whom the Crown Prince Rudolph was
found dead wits tho emperor's illegitimate daughter, aud thut it was the
shame with which he wus overwhelmed
by lhe discovery that drove tho prince

tragedy, weighing upon mental faculties
already diseused, should hnve driven the
empress to twice attempt to take her
life during her sojourn at Corfu as is reported.

ANOTHER WANT.
Tuk enterprising people of the important and rapidly growing settlements on the north side of the Fruser,
from Pitt river as far as Stave river and
beyond, not only want, but badly need,
bridge connection with this city by
means of u traffic bridge spanning Pitt
river. Such a bridge would be an incalculable boon to hundreds of settlers
(and their number is daily increasing)
within oue of the most fertile belts in
the province, extending about sixty
miles along the Fruser and having a
varying width back to the mountains of
from twenty to five miles. Tho principal settlements in this rich belt, and
those which by their comparative nearness to thiB city would be most benefited
by the bridge in question, are Maple
Ridge, embracing Port Haney and Port
Hammond; the Lillooet settlement,
immediately back of Maple Ridge, and
one which is making remarkable strides,
in filling up with desirable settlers and
in the extent and success of Its agricultural operations; the Whonnock, Stave
river, Burton's Prairie, and Agassis settlements, all thriving farming communities, every season adding largely to
their population and productiveness,
and within from twelve to sixty miles of
thiB city by road—but lacking the-essential missing link of a traffic bridge
across Pitt river.
It may be argued that, as the settlements referred to are all on or near the
river, and as the great Canadian Pacific
Railway also traverses the belt, there is,
therefore, no actual necessity for connection by a wagon road and traffic
bridge with this city. But traffic, even
by the river, the most convenient and
cheap means of communication which
these settlements have with this city, is
costly and inconvenient for the settlers
compared with the facilities which
direct connection by wagon road would
afford, and conveying produce to market
by the 0. P. R, is a losing game for the
producer. Then, owing to float ice, the
river steamers generally suspend operations for a month or six weeks, and occasionally for a longer term, during the
winter season, when the settlers in
question have no communication with
thiB city, their natural place of trade,
except by railway, ou which occasions
they have amplo opportunity to demonstrate the rather chary obligingness of
the Railway Company, especially when
trading towards Westminster.
A very passable road al eady exists
between this city and Pitt river, and
beyond thut but a short link or two of
road would be required to make the connection with nil the settlements referred
to completo, lacking only the traffic
bridge across Pitt river, which would
enable farmers to drive into town with
their produce, do their trading, and return the same day, in the majority of
eases, and at a comparatively trifling
expense to present conditions. So important is this bridge to the Maple
Ridge municipality, whicli comprises
the nearest and most important of the
settlements mentioned, that the ratepayers of that municipality, we are informed, would favor contributing a considerable sum through their council
towards the work. Considering the 1m-
imrtnnceof the enterprise as affecting
an jxteusive and rich'section of the
province, the Government should be
asked to givo substantial assistance to
the project. It is safo to say that, hod
the samo conditions existed on Vancouver Island, both the Westminster-
Siirrey aud the Pitt river bridge would
have been constructed, and principally
at Government expense, years ago.
HELIGOLAND.
Thirty-six miles north of the mouth
of the Elbe is a small island scarcely
three-quarters of a square mile iu area,
but which, In spite of its insignificant
size, is a British colony, of somo importance. It supports a population of
about two thousand persons, and has uo
public debt, whilst the revenue yearly
exceeds the expenditure by about £000.
When these things have boon written,
the principal items of Interest relating
to the place are supposed to havo been
recorded by thoso whose business tt is
to compile statistics for gazetteers or
almanacs, and yet Heligoland is worthy
of more than trivial attention. Lying
almost in the estuary of tho Elbe,
strange to say, its inhabitants are no
more of Teutonic than of Saxon origin.
The Hellgolanders aro Frisians, relics of
a disappearing race, but one tenacious
of itB Individuality. Europo contains
another of these pooples of no affinity
wlththo surrounding nations, namely
the Basques, who iu .Spain are strangers
in a strange land. It is a somewhat
interesting circumstance that the Frisian
islands, like the people, are gradually
disappearing, tho sandy dunes of the
Hchleswig chain being rapidly encroached upon by tlie remorseless
waves, and in the end, probably, the
rocks only will remain.
The rook, for Heligoland is littlo else,
is 200 feet in height and on its summit
is a lighthouse and .a' small town. Although nominally a British colony, and
having a governor and executive oouncil, it might with greater propriety be
styled a naval station, for it has no
colonists and practically no British resi-
' dents, It is in fact a very convenient
place of call for BrltlBb men-of-war in
the North Sea. The people are loyal
subjects of the BrltlBh crown, and have
never yet shown any desire to change
their allegiance. The military service
and heavy burdens of the German people have no attractions for them, whilst
the British supremacy on the seas very
naturally appeals to an ocean' girt people. Since 1807, when the -island was
captured from Denmark, very little of
political import has disturbed the Hellgolanders, and being a prosperous and
contented people, they probably think
It best to "let well enough alone."
Heligoland iB a very favorite watering
place for the residents of Hamburg, who
at certain seasons enjoy its bathing. Boing rocky (except on one side), large
quantities of shell fish ure always obtainable, and the inhabitants make no
small Btake by the sale of lobsters aud
crabs.
To the mind of the naturalist, how
ever, this smallest of the British, colonies bus an attraction altogether its own,
for it iB the house of call for vast hosts
of the migratory birds which in the
spring and the fall pass and repass on
their journeys from northern to
southorn skies, nnd it is n fact
of note that examples of overy feathered variety known in Europe have at
one thne or another beeu secured thore.
What a strange land this spun of rock
iu the midst of European civilization
must bo, too, for it has neither telegraphs, railways nor roads, whilst there
Ib not a horso or waggon on the isluud.
As muy be expected from its isolation,
and tho primitive simplicity of its people, old world customs and quaint observances are paramount. ItB caverns
and cliffs are peopled in the imagination
of the simple inhabitants by fairies and
elves, mermaids aud goblins, and' the
language of legend und folk-lore is not
merely romance to the mind of these
sturdy children of the sou, but veritable history. It wub once told of a Scottish nobleman that, when "doing" the
Alps, ho suddenly turned to his guide
and in a burst ot enthusiasm said, pointing to the view, "Surely there is no such
other Bight as that in the world."
'There is but one, I am told, that can
compare with thiB," replied the mountaineer, naming a pass In the Highlands. "Why," said his lordship, "that
place Is ou my own estate and I have
nover yet seen it." True or false, there
is get the germ of good sense in this
story, and when it is considered how far
afield rich Englishmen go in search of
rest and quiet it cajinot but lie thought
that a remembrance of this "tight little
island" would afford ample relaxation
from "lurking care" without the trouble
and expense of extensive travel.

innovation, and it is not at all improbable that NaBr-ed-Deen's deposition will
soon be ordered ou the ground of his insanity. His life will not be in danger,
for tbe Persians regard all lunatics as being under the special protection of Allah
and the Prophet, but he will lose hiB
throne and be sent into retirement—unless, indeed, he allows his recently acquired antipathy to unpleasant odors
to diminish. The trouble is that, in the
eyes of his subjects, he iB manifesting
other syniptons of insanity. He proposes to effect reforms in the administration of tbe law, to adopt European forms
of legislation, and to surrender a portion
of his authority to the people, who
therefore arc becoming firmly convinced
that ho is us crazy as a Mnrch hnre.
Although the Liberal purty in Newfoundland won a signal victory at the
recent general elections, the Opposition
in the House being weaker ui point
of numbers than ever boforo, the how
Government found some fight left in itB
opponents when its members sought reelection, Threo of the ministers, including Sir William Whlteway himself,
were obliged to win their seats over
again. It is roported that a strong political party, styled "The Patriotic Association," has organized outside the
House to aid tho Opposition within it.
It may lio inferred that itB motto is
"Newfoundland for tho Newfoundlanders, und not for the French fishermen,"
or something to thnt effect,—Ex.
The King of tho Belgians is said to be
in n difficulty, and looks to the Anti-
Slavery Conference to help him out of it.
For some years His Mujesty haB been
paying no less than £80,000 per annum
out of hiB privy purso to support the administration of tho Congo State. The
Belgian Parliament will not relieve him
of a farthing of this heavy cliarge. By
an agreemont of the European powers,
the King is forbidden to recoup himself
by the imposition of customs duties upon
tbe Congo. Tho position has become
serious, and the drain upon the King's
private resources can no longer be borne.
He hopes, therefore that the Anti-
Slavery Congress may make u recommendation to the jiowers to reconsider
tlieir decision, and iu the interests of
civilization aud good order te allow the
collection of moderate dues wlthlu tho
Congo Stato. At present, however, the
cougress seems scarcely "alive" euough
to achieve any great result. Tho apathy
of Englund, and of English public opln
ion with respect to it, has boon noted
with special regret in Brussels.
General BIlddleton'H Report.
Genernl Middleton in his annual report to the department draws attention
to the necessity for "C" barracks being
speedily completed. The old exhibition
building is pronounced most unsuitable
for barrack purposes in every way, and it
is impossible to Keep up proper discipline
in such quarters. He also draws nttentlon to the impossibility of the buttery
being nblo to enlist recruits in tho locality, and impresses the necessity of
Bending recruits to British Columbia
from other provinces. The reason of
this difficulty, undoubtedly the high
wages obtainable in the country, again
urges tho necessity of some extra allowance to "C" buttery on nccount of the
increased cost of living in Victoria ns
compared with other stations in the Horn in ion.

DOMESTIC FELICITY.
A Chapter   from   tho   Book of
Bvery-Day Lifo.
Mr. Smith missed iho train by just
one-liivlt minute, and ho was In a furious
temper over the matter. Ho livod ln a
pretty, country-like suburban vlllago,
about forty-flVG minutes'ride from tbo
large city In wbloh he had bin plnco of
business, and ho was accustomed to take
tbls particular train every morning. Not
once in throe months did such a thing
happen as his being lato for the train; but
on this occasion he felt liko declaring
tbat balf the* timo bo had to rush himself clear outof breath to roach it, or
else miss It. Ho Was in that exaspoi'ated
stato of mind whoro he wanted to bhmo
Bomobody, abuse snmohody; a stato of
mind whioh, in a oondition of development Is all ttie nearer tbo savago, would
impel to acts of cruelty toward any thing
or any person on whom anger could bo
wreakod. The porson on whom, in. this
instanco, bo oould most quickly and
with tbe least Impunity cast blame was
his wifo. It was all hur fault. Why
oould not Bhe manage household atfalrs
bo that be oould get bis breakfast
earlier? Uo worked liko a slavo at liis
businoss ten hours a day; be gnvo her
full control of the bouse, and furnished
money to run it; she bad a servant, and
It was puro and utter shiftlossness in
ber tbat breakfast could nut be roady in
proper time. Thus, wltb flashing eyes,
Bollluquizcd Mr. Smith, as, with angor-
fliishod face, bo watched the train disappearing in tho distance.
It was a full hour and a half till the
next train; It was nearly half a mile
back to Mr. Smith's house, Uo paced
back and forth norvouslyforafow minutes on tbe station platform, debating
In his mind whothor ho should wait
for the next train or go hack homo. As
bemused, his 'anger grow. He would
go home and give bis wifo such a pieco
of bis mind as sho would remember for
months, Sho should ho mado to feel
that it was no light'mattor to bavo breakfast flvo minutos lato. Ho turned his
toco homeward, and stamped heavily
along, with tho air of a man determined
to do a desperate deed. His faco flushod
with anger, and his oyo gleamed tlerooly.
Itut, as ho hastened along, somehow
or other his attention was diverted
by tbo song of a bird among tho
trees that lined his path, Ilo looked
up involuntarily. How brightly the sun
was shining; how bluo tho sky was;
how balmy and fragrant tho air; bow
peaceful ovory thing appoarod as ho
looked off through tho groon spaces on
either side of tlio village street* Tho
trees wero putting forth thoir tondorost
green; so was tlio grass. He noticed
tho frogroiwo of the orab-applo and wild
plum blossoms; lio distinguished the
peculiar strain of a bird ho used to hear
in boyhood, It was tho wood-thrush.
Uchud 1 burned to that bird when, years
ago, ho had walked iu the meadows and
lanes with the pretty, shy young girl
whom his heart was thou bent on winning for his wifo. Sho was his wife
now. She was tho mothor of three rosy,
active ehildron; they woro his and hern.
She was not as protty now as slio was
thou; sho was thin and careworn, The
plump msiness and merry smilo worn,
for tlio most part, gono. Itut what a
good, truo wifo sho had been to liimt
How her economy and faithfulness had
helped him in gotting tho start ho now
bad in tbo world) How littlo she saw of
the outsido World, or of diverting pleasures! How self-denying nud uncomplaining sho had boon, aud what a do
voted mothor to thoir children! And on
that bright, sunshiny murning lie had
been thinking hard thoughts of her, and
meditating what sharp, cutting words
bo ceroid say to hor—and all fur a trivial
little loss of an hour from businoss!
Mr. Smith's pace slackened; his countenance relaxed; his heart nu Hed. On
such a morning ho could not, would not,
by harsh words mar the harmony and
beauty of tho sunshine and birds and
, tho green tilings growing. No; If In
, could not speak kindly lie would hold
I his peace.
As Mr. Smith noared his home be felt
la certain shrinking from moeting hts
I wife directly.    He almost [eared he [
Imlght butray on his countenance some
lof the harsh  thoughts ho hnd been :
^thinking.   So he wont around tho sido
I of tho huuso and entered  the kitchen
I door.   Bridget wuh standing with a per-
Iploxed and oxasporatod expression on
j her faco looking Into tho kitchen stove,
[in which smoldered adark. dying fire.
"Wbat is tho matter, Hrldgot?"
"Faith, sur, It's tlto stovo that breaks
mo hoart intlroly.   Tho grate Is broken
anil tbe stove pi to smokes, and whin I
Htlirlvo to make    _niek Aro here's the
way It servos mo."
"Well, Uridgot, I hollovo It Is all my
(fault. Your mistress has asked mo
many times to bring a now grate from
tho city and also to send a man to clean
out tlie stovepipe and chimney. I will
put this down ln my note-hook and
bring tho now grato this evening, and
iPatMoFlynn. tho tinner, shull bo sont
yighUpUila morning to clean and lix
[fhoplpo."
"Oh, thank yo, surl" said Bridget,
Iwith a brightening countonanco. "And
kmld Pat flx the clsthorn, too? Tho
pump has been brokon a long toimo and
(coups mo biick in my work and breaks
iiio back drawing: wator wid a rope."
Again Mr. Smith's conscience smoto
lilin   Hew often had his wife asked him
- send a man to fix thu cistern!
"Yos, Bridget, tbo cistern shall ho
fixed this vory day."
!"Well, sur, thin I think HI stay. I
as just tellin' tho mistress that I
uultln't work any longer wid slch in-
invanlences; but if the stovo and
sthornaro fixed, a poor girl oan get
long."
Mr. Smith mado another memorandum
a his book, and passed on through tho
Jlnlng-room towards bis wifo's room,
Ie noticed that her plate indicated an
Utatnsted breakfast. Softly ho oponed
the door of their room. Uis wife
plarted up hastily, with an expression
pf alarmed inquiry ^on her face, ller
fcyus wore wet with tears. The baby,
ftillln its night-clothes, was fretting
i the cradle, whilo a littlo two-year
[old, partly dressed, tugged at her skirts,
"And so you missed tho train—break*
|fast waa lato—woll, I can't holp it—
J Bridget's going to leave, too," and tho
poor littlo woman covered her faco with
her hands and burst into sobs and tears
Sho fully expooted angry complaints
I from her husband, and, in somo vague
way. she felt sbe was to blame. Sho
could not compass ovory thing, and tho
[habioHwero so troublesome. Oh, did
ovory young mother havo suoh a bard
[time as she did?
"Why, darling, wbat is the matter?"
said Mr. Smith, putting his arms around
his wife, and drawing hor to him.
"Cornel don't mind. I think It Is really
mostly my own fault. I havo como
through the kitchen, and I find Bridget
has so much troublo with tho stovo be
Ing brokon and the chimney smoking
that I wondor sho can get breakfast ut
all."
"I ought to got up In tlmo to seo thai
y 'u havo breakfast early," sobbed the
poor .little woman; "but Bridget Is bo
oross this morning and I—I am so tired."
"No wondor, darling, that you are
tirod, with tho care of those big babies
wearing on you all tho time. You have
no business to havo any care of break
fast at all and you shall not have after
this. You need your good morning nap
and you shall havo it. Bridget is all
right. I'm going to get that brokon
stovo and cistern fixed to-day and then
if Bridgot cau't get breakfast In time
we'll find somo other way to do. Come,
now, choor up and I'll holp you dross
thoso roguos; I havo plenty of time bofore the noxt train."
How wondorful is the effect upon tho
physical naturo of a spiritual im
pulsol How quickly can an uplifted
and strengthened spirit energizo and
strengthen tho body! Evory thing
seemed instantly changed for poor.de
jeeted little Mrs. Smith. She laid he.
cheek on her husband's breast, feeling
what a haven of strength and peace li
wub. Bow dear and precious was his
lovo and protection! Hor oyos bright
ened and her chocks glowed. Hc^wearl
ness and depression, which had beet,
utter misery, gave way to a deiiglttfn
feeling of repose and loving happnu .
In the midst of the most prosaic mn
roundings her hoart was full of thoflno:
and most inspiring emotion.
"Doar, dear love, how good you are!'
she said. "How ydu hove changed th-
aspect of evory thing for mo tiiin mon.

SHEET  MUSIC   PRINTING.
in   Interesting   Proton   ot Which  Uw
Publio Knows Very Uttle.
If the publio will be as muoh surprised to learn how sheet music is
printed as was the writer thia article.
will he read with interest. A walk;
through the printing-rooms of the
largest music publishing houso ln Boston, under the tutelage of its courteous
foreman, is full of interesting instruction.
It was Into ono of the many "lofts" in
whioh the establishment abounds that
a Boston Globe reporter was takon. One
floor was Ailed with a voritablo lace-
work of long poles, placed horizontally,
which were loaded out of sight with
sheet music hung upon tbem to dry.
Tho whole place hod the air of washing
day at home, and the roportor involuntarily glanced around as if perchance ho
might get a glanoe of cold dinner lying
about.
"As fast aa the sheets are printed we
hang them here over night," said the
foreman, "and, then placo them between
pustoboards and press them flat. Then
thoy. are ready for market. Como up
Into the press-rooms."
Tho press-rooms are very unlike thUr
newspaper prototypes. Not a sound loud
enough to interfere with conversation is
heard ln them. Por aheot music ia printed
all by hand.
Two kinds of presses are used; the old
style "plank" press and the improved or
"D" press. Tho latter constats of a
sliding table several feet square, on
which are two raised blocks just the
size of a sheet of musio, on whioh are
placed the plates from whioh tbe printing is done. Tho plates having been
Inked and the papor laid on thom, the
printer gives a turn to an immenso
wheel, 5>ti feet ln diameter, the sliding
table slides under a largo roller covered
with a belt and the paper is forced
against, the plates, thus giving tbo impression; and another revolution of the
wheel brings the apparatus back to its
original position. The "plank" press is
like the other exoept that In using it
the plates aro Inked on a bench and
laid on the blocks every time an impression is taken, whilo with the "D" press
the plotos are not removed from the
blocks until the edition is run off.
"Now, here is a man printing title
pages," said tho foreman. "We print
only ono sheet at a time, and a man can
tako from fifteen hundred to eighteen
hundred Impressions a day. This
plate, which looks exactly liko
silvor, la composed of fine, lead
and britannia, and Is mado almoat exclusively in Now York. Every
publishing house manufactures itB own
ink; It can't be bought. It is very particular stuff and must bo mado just bo,
and lt Is a vory delicate matter to mako
and take caro of it. This title page has
heen engraved hy hand. Tho design is
sunken, you boo. When ongraved the
plate Is put on a hot blook and beeswax
is melted into the design. That, too, is
a ticklish matter; if we wipe it off too
soon we spoil it, and if wo let it get too
hard it crumbles and won't hold tho ink.
Onco beeswaxed, a plate oan be used for
printing for years.
"Engraving tho muslo plates Is a different process, howover, from that used
in making tho title page. The engraver
has to havo a separate tool for evory
kind of note—half, whole, quarter
rests, oto. His outfit costs 8400. He
tloes not oarvo into tho plate as wood
engravers do, but stamps out oach note
ncparatoly with a hammer. You can
imngino what nice work It ia to adjust
the tools just right and how hard itis
to engrave a sheet of music."
Tho roportor watched tho process of
printing und saw something liko this:
Alter the pluto had boen fastened to its
block on the press tho printer Inks It
witli a hood roller, just as other printers Ink their typo in taking proofs,
lie thon wipes tho plate carefully
with a cloth; tho ink sticks to the
beoswax, which oovors the design or tho
notes, and the rest of tho plate is comparatively clean. A socond wiping with
anothor rag loaves all but tho design
Bhlnlngly clean, tho paper ls laid on,
and tho great wheel, revolving, soon
takes tho impress!- u and returns tho
printed pages to tho printer's hand.
The plate Ib then wiped again, reinked,
rewipod twice, and, in fact, undergoes
tbo samo process botwoon eaoh impression.
"Itls a curious fact," continued the
foreman, "thataltbougb thla work Is all
done by hand tho printors nevor touch
tho paper. A piece of pasteboard is
folded double and used as a holder and
with that tho printer handles all his
sheets, and never lets bis inky hands
como In contact with them."        •.
"Isn't music printed from type sometimes?" asked tho roporter
"Yob. When wo want to run oft* a
large edition of some cheap stuff, books
or something of that sort, wo sot the
music up In type, stereotype tho page
and print from it, just as you newspaper
follows do. But the work isn't as handsomo and, besides, there Is some mi
written that can't be aet up with type."
. All music platea aftor being used aro
stored In fire-proof vaults and indoxed
for possiblo future uso. Tho foreman
statos tbe curious fact that ln tho groat
collection of which ho has charge there
aro moro pieces of music whoso namo bo-
gin with S than of any other letter,
while tho M's aro a close second.

day to a brother farmer: "Havo you

"No, tbe baboons rob all the nests."
"How do tbey do it? the boos would

An Important Want.
The poople of Surrey municipality are

more particularly along tlio river front,

road and the river front has beon preempted, but the new settlers have no
roads hv whieh to vet In supplies or to
take the farm produce to market. The
only means of reaching thu Yale rond in
any case is over old logging trails and
bridle paths, fow of wliich are lit to take
a horso over, and ns for taking a vehicle
over theso trails, it is impossiblo, A
deputation of Surrey people 'will loavo

Foot-Hull Notei.
The foot-hall season has opened briskly in Vancouvor, Victoria and Nanaimo,
and to-morrow it will como to life in
Westminster. Vancouvor and Victoria
have been practicing for two weoks, and
are said to be already playing in good
form. Westminster has some hard
matches to play before the season is
over, aud if the reputation and victories
of tlio past are to be upheld, lots of
protty stiff practico will have to be indulged iu.
To-morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock a
practice match will be played on Queen's
park botween tlie following teams :
Captain's toam. Bell, Lewis, Woods,
Turner, Lister, Hamber, Miller, Morrison, Clute, Clapcutt, Williams aud
Sniythe. Vice-captain's team, Worsfold, Whyte, McLaren, Greame, McMartin, Corbett, Mowat, McFarlane,
Pickles, Allen, Johnson and Morrison.
Some names may have beeu omittod
from these teams, but tbo captains wish
it to be distinctly understood that every
foot-ball player hi tho city is welcome
to be presont and take part iu tbe practice.
It is very necessary that the practice
to-morrow should be largely attended,
as the first match with Vancouver will
be played on Saturday, 22nd inst., and
lots of hard work will be necessary to
fet the team into form before that time.
n all, WestminBter has six matches to
play before the close of the season, viz.:
Vancouver two, Victoria one, Nanaimo
two, and Mainland vs. Island one. Let
the players gather in full force to-morrow, and bIiow by their work that they
intend Westminster will come to the
front again thiB year with tlio same flying colors as in the past.

Concerning Flgurea.
Editor Columiiian.—Some people tell
us that figures can't lie, and others aver
that there are uo greater liars iu the
world—oxcept facts. 1 am reminded of
this conflict of testimony by tho recent
return made to the House, and the talk
thereby created. Your correspondent
(who may of course be slightly intoxicated with the exuberance of his own verbosity), tells us that Victoria is "elated"
hy the publication of a return showing
hor to be six million dollars ahead of
any other city in the provinco iu assessable property. Now, anyone who knows
these cities, knows that if we cull Victoria
ua big as Vancouvor aud Westminster
together, we givo hor all Bhe is entitled
to. How, then, does she manage to took
four or fivo times as big in this return?
Of course I would not insinuate that
thero Is anything wrong iu the return.
Tliat might he contempt of the high
court of Parliament, and a hanging matter, for all I know! A Vancouver paiier
has pointed out that, as the capital,
Victoria is the representative centre of
a great deal of wealth that does not
belong thero nt all. This gives the koy
to the puzzle, Instead of being so much
bigger, Bho simply has attracted a dozen
or so of gentlemen who have mado
money, for the most part out of thu development of provincial resources. It is
uot much to boast of after all, and whon
we remember that for fifteen yeara or
more tho wholo province had to pay for
making the capital attractive, the whole
province had togo naked and hungry in
the mutter of public works and huu to
put up with all sorts of exactions aud
vexations in its trade and-.commerce,
that Victoria might grow rich nud beautiful, we doubt the policy of flaunting
thiB return as an argument iu the redistribution of seats—and that is what
it is intended for, of course.
Now turn to the truer figures of lust
year's assessment, and see what they
liavo to say., New Westminster city
revenue, (10,000; Victoria citv, f-hlOOO,
ur not quito i\% times thnt of Now Westminster.
Total revenue from cities and dish-ids,
M10,021, of which New Westminster city
aud district mini ♦153,11*7, or over one-
third, and ot which tlie mainland paid
(239,000, and thu island, $121,012.
These figures tell us whoro tu find the
bono and sinow, tho enterprise and energy oT thu country; the finance minister's carefully selected half-truth simply
shuws where we muy look for the local
habitation of a few plutocrats.
Ouo word more. How does It come
that last year's return gives us twu divisions of Cowichan district, twu of Nanaimo, five of Yale, and two each of
Cariboo aud Cassiar, while the important city of Vancouver is iguominiously
''lumped" under the general heading of
'New Westminster District?" Why?
Gentle J. H. tell us why?

A   SUCCESSFUL  RAID.
Chiof of Polioe   1'uHi-eii   Makea   a flrvnl
Haul uf Opium anil ChlnuHH Wines.
For some months past Chiof of Polico
Pearce has been aware that several of
the Chinese merchants iu the west end
have boon selling liquors aud opium
without a license. Tho Chinese ure
notoriously sharp, and it was imtiossible
to delect (lie illicit traffic and bring the
offenders to justice. Several trials were
made to get ttt the vight parties, hul all
were unsuccessful. Yesterday afternoon,
however, Constable Curly, who has been
working diligently in tbu mattor, got
hold of proper "sulijucts," und worked u
scheme wlioieliy Sing Kee nud Ying
Tai, well-known Chinese morchants,
have come to grief. Thev enlisted the
services of two Celestials, who went to
the stores of Ihe above-named morvhiiiits
and purchased nl each u hot tie of whisky
and a small box of opium. These were
quickly transferred to the possession of
Constablo Carty, who placed thom safely
In tho lock-up.
This morning an information wns
sworn against Sing Kee und Ying Tai
for soiling liquor aud opium without a
license. Chief Pearce and Constablo
Carty, accompanied by the specials, went
quietly down to the stores uud
weru uitou the unlicensed Celestials
before they realised what waB up.   A
thorough search was made, which resulted m the finding of 20 pounds of prepared opium, 100 bottles of liquors and
wines, and a large barrel of whisky.
Tbe storekeepers were promptly arrested and conveyed to the lockup, to
uwuit a bearing before the police magistrate. The case camo up this nfternoon

The arrest of these two well-known

A BIG FIRE LAST NIGHT,
• 150,000.00 Goes up In Blue Smoke!
Most of our citizens will probably learn
with surprise thut while some of them
wero enveloped lu peaceful slumbers, a
very extensive and destructive firo wub
2uietly going on ut the city hull. The

Bonus By-law, 1888," and the "Ferry
Service By-law, 1888." These bonds
wero signed by the late Mayor Dickinson, but as the by-law under whicb they
hnd been issued was subsequently repealed, tho bunds wore nevor completed.
Mr. Dickinson had, however, signed the
whole lot before retiring from office, and
his signature appeared on them 30,300
times.   No insurance.

u sjicciflc duly on nil. They now complain thut owing to the manner in which

Robert CoUyer *w ra nook-Buyer.
A bit from tho genial Uttle address
which Robert CoUyer mado at the upon
Ing of the Richard Sugden library, at
Spencer, Mass.: "When I oame to thin
new world and had not hoard aa voter that
library among tho green lands, hut must
have books on any terms, and tho terma
were hard and the good wife watching
not the dollars, but the very cents, beoause thoy must all be saved to furnish
the little house, I oan well remember
how I bought a book ono day for half a
dollar, far too big to smuggle Into the
cottage, and hid lt in the bushes, watched
my chances the next day, *and got it ln
all safo and Bound; and some days after,
when she caught me rOading, and said:
'Where did you get that book, my dear?'
I answered: 'Why, I have'had lt for
aomo time,' and thon she only said: 'In
deedi' for Bho was patient with mo and
good; and then, it was In what somebody calls our treacle moon."
Vailing from ra Height,
In reference to an annotation In the
Lancet upon this subjoot, a medical man,
formerly a sailor, states that in youth
ho fell from tho topgallant ynrdof a vessel, a dlstanoo of at least one hundred
and twenty feet. Sensation was entirely lost during his transit through tho
air. It returned slightly on striking
tho water, sufficiently to enable tho lad
to striko out (boing a good swimmer)
and boIzo a lifo buoy. The writer thinks
death would have boon palnloBs had ho
fallen on somo hard substanco; but the
assortion that persons die ln the aot of
falling Is, he thinks, evidently wrong.
