A Narrow   K-u'iiiio.
Paterson, N.J., Fob. 8.—Washington
Hall, which occupied a square of ground
on Broadway, was burned to tlie ground
about 2 o'clock this morning. Tho loss
will not fall much under $311,000. A hall
was in progress at tho time tho lire was
discovered, but all the guests got out in
safoty, some, howover, loaving wraps
behind them. Tho (Ire originated in the
basement of tho building, and it was
only whon tho dense smoko mado its
way into tlio bull room that tho guosts
woro mnde aware of tho great danger.
On the top floor of tho building wore the
sleeping apartments of tho janitor, Wm.
Smith nud his wife, both of whom had a
narrow escape from sufibctition, the latter being carried out unconscious. The
firo is now said to huvo been caused by
an explosion in the soda water factory
of Moses Swiuley, in tho roar end of the
building, About 2:40 a.m., when the
flames woro at their highest, a rapid fire
of ninsketrv look plnee, frightetiingovery
one from the building. This was caused
by the ignition of 10,0(11) rounds of cartridges in the armory on the first flat.
The fusllado was kept  up somo time,

Poit'1-i.ANi), Feb. 7.—The business portions oi the city, including Front, First
nnd all the cross streets, huvo been tbe
scenes of great activity to-duy. In all
tlie buildings from Morrison to C street,
the first floors were covered with mud,
of au average thickness of balf an inch.
Hundreds of men and boys have been
busily engaged swooping and scrubbing
and Hcraping iu ordor to get the sTores
mid offices in shape for the transaction
af business. The sidewalks, croHSways
and wagon ways leading to the docks
and wharves aro torn up in many piuces
and washed away. From Morrison to
Stuilt street ull the tirst floors are bare,
hut from Stark streot to Oak and Pine
tbey are still inundated. Below tbey
are dry again, but tho streets aro not
visible at all.
The bridges aro safe, although tbe
Morrison street structure has not^teijt-'
led vehicles owing to tbo fact thnt souie
boards were torn up by the driftwood.
Tho foot passenger way on the south sido
is damaged on the west sido central pier,
but for that matter every pier is all
right. Tho iron bridgo is in about as
good condition as it was before the Hood.
The docks nro all solid as far ns the
foundations are concerned, though some
of tho su-ierstructure is damaged. None
of the steamboats woro injured, and as
far us known only tho ship Patterdtdo lias
suffered. The loss of business and the
lubor of raising and removing the stock,
of course, will figure among tho losses.
Not oue of the Front street bouses aro
able this morning to state what they
will be out by the flood, but doubtless
tho sum will average not over $100 to
each firm. All day long drays and express wagons havo been hauling stoek
from tlm warehouses back to the stores
from which it was taken during the rise.
In mnny places onFrontstreetthepave-
ment has lost its foundations, aim consequently numerous depressions aro
found.	
Stanley   Interviewed.
New York, Feb. 7.—In an interview
with Stanley, the explorer pays a high
tribute to Emin Pasha's character, but
explained what ho called bis "peculiar
deficiencies,'' He said Emin was a great
linguist and remarkably scientific, but
utterly unable to cope with tlie treachery
nnd gnile of the natives. Stanley's description of his own method of maintaining discipline has the elements in it of
true tragedy.
"Among Einin's Egyptian ofneors,"
said Stanley, "Jepson pointed out to mo
several who were plotting against us in
our own camp. I at once had the ring
leader put under arrest. Iu his possession we found incriminating correspondence, proving conclusively that ho
was iu the Mahdist .plot to capture usall.
At this time I was about reduced to a
skeleton by my second attack of gastritis, but I ordered a court martial to try
him. He was found guilty on every
count. I waB in iny tent on tbe flat of
iny bnck, so weak and so emaciated I
couldn't sit up. I made them prop me
up in a chair outside, however, and I
swallowed a bracing tonic to ssrongthen
mc to the task of pronouncing the sentence on this villain. I determined te.
make such an example of him that there
would bo no further conspiracy in our
camp ut uny rnte.
They brought him before me. The
people stood round in silence. I looked
at liim, nnd mustered what little
strength I bnd to address him: 'We
came through a thousand difficulties
and have risked our lives a hundred
times to save and succor you, and now
iu roturn for alt wo havo pnssed through
for your sake, what do you do? You
conspire in your own camp to have us
taken as slaves to Khartoum, A court-
martial of white men and your comrades has given you a •fair' trial, and you
liavo been found'guilty on every count.
Depart to God.'
"The people wore so wrought up by
theso words and by the whole scene,'
snid Mr. Stanley, "that they rushed at
him like one man and soized hint,     i;
'Whtttflhull wo do with him?' they
shouted.   'What shall wo do with him?'
'To Qod with liim I Take him to God!"
and 1 pointed to a limb of a treo. Tho
next moment a ropo was round his neck,
and a hundred willing bands were hauling him up, tugging away at tho rope.
"Now, you see, said Stanley, addressing the rest of the Egyptians, "you are
not in Wadelai. There will be no coaxing, uo patting on tho back with mo.
I'll hang overy traitor among you I can
lay hands on.
"Huvo yon seen as much evidonco of
slave bunting on this expedition as on
your others, Mr. Stanloy, and do you
think there is ns much of it going on ns
ovor?"
"Yes, just ns much. Thoro isnodim-
inulion. Oh, yes, blockading the const
is u vory good thing so far ns ltgoos, but
it there wasn't a buyer for a single slavo .
outside of Africa it would make little
difference.   It is tbo nature of Africaus.
"The first ambition of a slavo is to own
slaves himsolf.. Your boy who waits on
you iu Zanzibar, if ho has any ambition
at all, question him and you'll find thnt
it is to nny and own slaves."

LABOR  DISPUTES AND COMMERCIAL PROSPERITY.
The news tbat tho dockers in London,
England, aro again about to go ou strike
ojieiw up afresh tbo possibility of a dispute which everybody hoped had boen
settled, at least for somo time to como.
In a thickly populated country liko
England, and moro especially in congested emit res of commercial life snch as
London, labor disputes of some kind arc
almost incessant, but it is seldom that
thoy assume the magnitude which tho
late dockers' strike reached. It may
safely bo taken for granted that the evident sympathies of tlie public, both in
England and abroad, wero strongly, and
rightly, in favor of tlio strikors at that
timo, and should it be that the dock
owners are endeavoring to go bock on
the settlement elTected in the fall of last
year, thanks to tbo mediation of public-
spirited men like Manning, Licit back,
and the ex-Lord Mayor, thoro is vory
little doubt but that tho men wilt havo
again extended to them the moral and
material support which so largely helped
them to como off victorious in 1881). At
the same time, it must not be forgotten
tbat a very serious responsibility rests
with the strikers in coining out a second
time, and that any ill-advised or hasty
action upon their part will call down
from the civilized world a sharp note of
disapprobation. Ttie magnitude of the
business dono at the docks of London
can he grasped from the fact that In
1888, 70,000 vessels entered and cleared
from that port, being no fewer than 210
for every day in tho year. Thus it ii
easily disceruibly that to, by any moans,
harrass the working of tlie shipping
trade of London, means a responsibility
too serious to be estimated; for not only
is such a disturbance felt in the metropolis itself, but in every town and household iu the country, more or less, not
to mention the tremendous loss entailed
by foreign nnd colonial ports and centres
of trade.
The sanguine anticipation of tho liritish Chancellor of the Exchequer that ho
will have to announce a surplus
whon explaining the budget to tho
House of Commons, is n very suro sign
that trade has revived and tbat the end
of a long period of depression has at last
" beou reached. From time to time Tiik
Columbian hnsnoted this upward tendency iu tho trade of the mother country.
Anything calculated to iu auy way kill
tbls revival, in its very infancy, will
earn tbe rebuke of all right minded
men, and unless there is really justifiable cause, such as flagrant injustice on
the part of the employers, tho mon must
Iw prepared to boar a great deal of
odium for endangering tbo prosperity of
the country. At the presont timo wages
are advancing, and in tlio skilled labor
market the demand for workpeople is
good. Summing up tho commercial
condition of England at tho end of tlie
yoar 1880, a writer of great authority
said "the atate of trade is excellent and
tlio prospect of still groater improvement is decidedly good."
Whilst every indication goes to show
tho soundness of this view, there comes
tbo very oinnious intelligence that anothor great striko is impending. We
hopo that the news iB exaggerated, but
if true, and no way can he found to
bring labor and capital to amicable relations, then it may safely be said that
the British people will very quickly discern tho rights nnd wrongs of the quarrel, aud make warm weather for whichever sido is endeavouring to stifle rising
prosperity at tlio expense of the public.
THEORETICAL POLITICS.
The newly appointed professor of
philosophy at Toronto University
' when delivering his inaugural lecture
took bb hie subject "Philosophy iu rela-
"tion to Lifo and Education," and an
eastern exchange discourses as follows
on the professor's address, bringing out
a number of ideas that are worth pondering by our local politicians: The
professor mado out a very good cose
for his own Bpeclal branch of study,
showing that philosophy was really the
convergence of all tho deepest lines of
thought In every depart .ment of life.
One cannot wonder, howovor, whether
amongst our politicians any oue will
tako seriously to heart his remarks
about the relation of philosophy to
politics. "The economist and tho legislator," he said, "must understand
"human motives if they would construct
"a policy or frame a statute opportunely.
"The only capable student of political
"and general history, and the only safe
"guardian of the franchise, is the man
"who knows something of tho historic
"development of the human mind as seen
"In institutions, and knows how to load
"the popular thought of a constituency
"to a higher plane of political theory."
Uis doubtful whether any of our practical politicians would lake tlie troublo
to road Professor Baldwin's addross, but
lt is easy to imagine what their comment would be if they did: "Very fino
"in theory, but with uo application to
"things as they aro. We understand
"human motives first rate; wo know
"that people liko to have public money
"expended locally, and we play that
"card as often as we can. As to constructing policies we put that off na long
"uo we can for fear of committing some
"error by whieh our opponents might
"profit; but our general policy is to do
"what wo think will please the majority
"and inako ourselves popular. The his-
"teric development of tho human mind
"is nothing to ub or to tho electors at
"large, and as to the thought of gotting
"a constituency up to a higher piano we
"should have to get oursolvos up there
"first, and the chances are that if wo
"did we should only bo putting our-
"selves on the shelf."   It Is unfortu
nately tho case that the political philosopher has rarely been a successful
politician; but it does not follow from
tliat tbat a man may not cultivate and
maintain a reasonably high political
ideal, and yet command the confidence
of a constituency. Such a man requires
certain personal gifts of earnestness, of
conviction, of Bhrewd common sense, of
popular sympathy, but this combination
of qualities is not after all of very rare
occurrence, and a man possessing thein
and willing to devote his time nnd energies to politics might exercise a very
beneficial influence. It is a great tiling
to havo a voico raised in opposition
to those sordid appeals whicli do so much
to degrade our politirs and lower tho
tone of the constituencies. Even though
the advocate of lietter principles might
fail to carry the majority with him, it
would be no small gain to infuse thoso
principles into n'minority howcversmall.
What after all is success? Hall depends
upon what a man aims at. If a man's
sole aim is to get himself elected lo the
legislature, there is uo success-for him
unloss ho gains his election. But if his
primary aim is to advocate and champion right principles, to gain a hearing
for elevated aud patriotic sentiments, to
persuade a certain number of his fellow
citizens tliat who all occupy themselves
with politics are not given over to selfish
and vulgar ambition, under such circumstances a man might succeed though be
did not get a hundred votes. Many
good men are too much scared at tho
thought of failing in the eyes of the
world, and tako too little comfort out bf
the thought of achieving roal success ou
behalf of souud principles. The result
is that mere, factiouists, men who represent no principles whatever worth talking ubout, have the whole field to themselves, and iiin politics down to the
lowest moral ebb, with their low intrigues and hollow speeches. We have
some reason to think, however, that a
better spirit is now abroad in the land;
and, though it would be over-sanguine
to look for bb close a union between
philosophy nnd politics as Prof. Baldwin
recommends, it may not be too much to
hope thnt, little by little, the spirit of
philosophy and of patriotism may bo infused into our politics, nnd that iu due
time we may find that wo liavo outgrown
some of the bad methods and practices
of the past. This is a work in which
every intelligent, right thinking man can
holp; for it only means standing up for
the truth and the right on all occasions,
and antagonizing tho wrong. If we cunnot have a moral revolution wo can at
least mako the beginnings of a moral
reform.     ^^^^_^__--—

The Germans are said to be much in
terosted iu M. Paul Giffard's repeating
air rille, well-named "the miracle gun,
It uses a steel cartridge about n foot long
and as thick as a man's thumb, which
is charged with vi veiled air aud contains
300 shots. Tho shots are expelled with
great forco and accuracy, and without
flash or smoke. The weapon is very inexpensive.
Tho Opistltccomus, a bird of tbe island
of Marajo, in the Amazon, is four-footed
whon young. Its wing has two lingers,
each with a claw which drops off after a
time, and these are used in scrambling
about. As tho wings of birds nre supposed to have heen evolved from prehensile bands, this is, as Mr. F. E, Bod-
dard states, "a curious instance of a partial retention of an earlier condition."
Groat Britain has been vory generally
regarded as a land of singular freedom
from earthquakes. Yot a new catalogue
hy Mr. Win. Roper records no less than
582 diBtinct earthquakes as "the moro
remarkable" ones felt in Groat Britain
aud Ireland since tho beginning of tho
Christian era. Of these, 235 occurred
during the present contury aud 132 in
the eighteenth century. Considerable
evidenco points to disturbances iii tho
twelfth century so severe as to raise the,
beds of navigablo rivers aliovo tho water
or to cliango tho courses of the streams.
A somewhat novel brake brought out
by two London electricians consists of
two iron discs, one fitted to tho insido
of tho car wheel, tho othor sliding on
tho axle, but secured so that it cannot
revolve. The second disc contains a
powerful magnetic coil, whicli draws it
to tho othor disc when tho electric current is turned on, tho adhesion causing
the wheel to cense its revolution. In
trials of this brake ou English roads, a
car running 42 milos au hour was
brought to a standstill in 150 yards, and
ouo travelling 30 milos an Vour on a
slippery track waB stopped in 00 yards.
Odors havo been found to vary according tothe molecular weightof substances,
and it is belioved with good reason that
smell Ib duo to gaseous vibrations, liko
Bight and hearing. Substances of low
molecular weight have no odor, probably
because their particles cannot Btrike the
olfactory nerves with sulllcieiit force to
be porcoived. It ia a curious fact of
common oxperionco that odors do not
combine, the strong ono boing perceived
alone. By studying two odors at tlio
samo time with an instrument varying
thoir rolativo proportions, Dr. Z. Ward-
oinskor, of Utrecht, has lately shown
that when so balanced thnt neither was
perceived alone, tho sensations wore extinguished completely. This ellect is
analogous to tho interference phenomena
of light mid sound.
Tho gigantic Ceratoptiaa, whoso skulls
Prof. O. C. Marsh haa beon examining-,
appear to have beon not tho least important of tlio creatures that lived in
Norlh America before the bison. Remains of these reptiles have been found
over a distance of nenrly 800 miles lu tho
uppor cretaceous deposits along tho
eastern flank of tho Rocky Mountains,
In the best known genus of tho family,
tho skull exceeding In sizo that of every
land animal hitherto known, must havo
reached a length of more thnu eight
feet. It was wedge-shaped, and had a
remarkable and most formidable armature, including a sharp cutting beak in
front, a strong born on tho noso, a pair
of immense pointed horns on top of the
head, and a row of sharp projections
around the back of tbo bead. All were
protected by a homy covering of great
strength.
Carnivorous animals, according to M.
Charles Eicliet, bear fasting better than
the herbivorous, tlio latter being accustomed to eat almost continuously instead
of at uncertain intervals. Dogs can endure abstinence 30 days, on tbe average,
and cold-blooded animals twice that
time. A python, however, has been
known to livo 23 mouths without outing,
a rattlesnake 27 months, a tortoise 18
months and a frog 10 months. Tho endurance depends greatly upon tho activity of tho nervous system, which is wonderfully reduced during tlie torpidity of
hibernating creatures, but tho fatal
limit of fasting is usually reached in all
animals when the loss in weight reaches
40 per cent. In the caso of man, in
health, the estimate seems justified that
20 days of fasting will bring death. But
with special preparations, as in the cases
of Tanner, Succi and Merlatti, fasting
seems to have been prolonged to twice
this period, or longor, withont fatal rosult. Diseased persons often live much
longer without food than healthy ones
could. A Dutch hysteric woman died
in 1820 after nearly four yenrs of fasting, and another woman died in 1828
after a lethargic fast of six months.
Many cases of wonderful fasts, less entitled to belief, aro given by medical
writers of two or three centuries ago.
Among them is that of-a girl of Heidelberg who noither ate nor drank for seven
years, that of a girl of Spires who lived
for throe years upon nothing but a fow
drops of water or wine, and tbat of a
girl of Cologne who fasted four years
and fainted at the taste of food, Iu the
last century a woman is said to have
lived 20 years in a state of partial fasting, relieved at intervals by a fow drops
of milk or broth, aud another woman
ate in a year only what an ordinary person would require for two days.
THE FAIRHAVEN & .SOUTHERN.
The    Oompany     P lulling    Conalruotlon
Vlgi» ron uly In Four Different
Directions.
The following interview with Nelson
Bennett, token from the Tacoma (Robe,
is of considerable interest: Questioned as
to what ellect tho proposed extension of
the Northern Pacific into British Columbia would haveon the Fairhaven & Southern, whoBe territory would be thus invaded, Nelson Bennett, president of
tho lattor road, replied that it would
make no difference whatever. "Tho
Fairhaven & Southern," he continued,
iB going right along with its construction. We are working iu four different
directions. Twonty-Bix milea of road
are completed ana in operation from
Fairhavon to Sedro. Thenco wo nro
pushing construction up tho Skagit river
easterly twenty miles. How Mir will
we build on this line? Oh, ns far as our
money will go. From Westminster
south we have twenty-four milea completed, nnd a working force is engaged
ou a fivo mile strip south of the British
lino, which is twenty-eight milos from
Westminster. It is twenty-six miles
from tho British line to Fairhavon.
Right south of Sedro the construction
forces aro scattered for a distanco of
eighteen miles. YoU probably noticed
a telegram, evidently inspired* to boom
some Port Townsond lino that the ship
Moody had left New York with a toad
of steel rails for the Port Townsend
road. Lot mc say to you that the ship
Charles E. Moody has loaded aud is now
on tho way from New York with 2,800
Ions of steel rails for the Fairhavon cc
Southern railroad, and 1 wish you would
stale in justice to our road," continued
Mr. Bennett, "that the insinuations
that wo have auy second hand engines
or cars of the Northern Pacific railroad
repainted for our use is utterly without
foundation and false iu overy particular.
All our rolling stock is now*and bought
directly from tho factories.."

An' kep' track of tbe sun,
An' rakcil Its own opinions In

(An' looked so mild antl meek!)
Some anecdotes thor' would bo told
If our old clock could Bpoak i
It's stood aroun' at every meat
'Mid clash o' plate and oup,
An' heard us our Idces reveal,
An' bIzo our neighbors up;
It's traced our littlo blckorln'a. too,
An' seemed to sympathize,
A Huuliiiin' softly at us through

iihonld, In somo way, approach hor as an

Ono night ho sat in hia room musing
ovor the creation of somo possiblo
whoiiiO. "Let nio seo now. Unless I
go as a distinguished man of some sort
I can not, get an introduction to hor,
:uid In that ovont I should gain no roal

Tho noxt day a boy,  entering tlm
offico of Jacob Italobt said that a man
wished to see htm.
"Toll hlm I'm busy."
"Hut ho says his business is vory important."
"Toll blm to oomo In."
A man dressed in neat but plain clothes
entorod.
"Woll, sir, wbat businoss havo you
witli mo?"
"I notico," said tho visitor, "that you
hnvo a vory fine toam of horses."
'* Yon, but I don't want to soil—"
"Oh, I didn't supposo you did. Lot
mo got through, ploaso. I notice thut
your toam Is not VBry woll driven and,
moro than that, not vory woll takon

"Humph! I don't know but you aru
right."
"And I havo come," tho visitor continued, "to tell yon thnt I should liko
to have tho opportunity to sorvo you as
uooohmon. I havo been In tho omploy
of a number of loading gentlemen both
In this country and In Europe, and
know thnt I should give satisfaction;
ami to ahow how thoroughly in earnest
lam, let mo say that I will servo on
trial for six months and shall during
that time expect no wages."
Mr. Jiiil-'h, being a millionaire, was
uypr Impressed by a proposition that
did not cost nny thing
"What's your name?"
"John Jones, Blr."     j
"Ah, a good honest name, and, John,
I don't know but I'll givo you a trial.
Do you kii >w whero I llvo?"
'"Yes, Sir." 4
"All* right. Come around this evening at B9von o'clock."
John wns engaged. Ho waB a mid-
41 lug driver, and by reading up on "how
to take care of horsos," managed to
make a good showing. One morning ho
approached his master and said:
"J find, sir, that after doing my work
tt tbo gtablos I have considerable timo
un my hands,"
"Well."
"I was thinking, sir, that during that
spare tlmo I might work In the llower
garden. For which I Bhould mako no
charge," ho added, poroolving an expression of anxiety on tho millionaire's
face.
"AU  right, John,   just   go ahead,
That's tho best follow I ovor ran across,"
he continued when John had withdrawn
Tbo bright smile of a beautiful day
was settling into tho thoughtful mood
of evening.   Poarl was walking ln the
garden.   Tho coachman was hovering
ovor a bod of tulips.
"John, bow aro the roses?"
"Doing vory woll, miss, considering
the unfavorable woathor wo have had
rocontly.   Tho row is thogonlusof flowers*  to bo boautirui,  tho atmosphere
about It must bo Inspiring,"
Nho stopped and looked earnostlyat
him.
'/Othor flowers," he went on, "ropresent the common raco of man, but tho
roso is tho pout."
"Yes," sbo said, aftor a slight pauso,
"but the rose Is not tho must delicate,
for do wo not havo to keep some flowers
In a hot-house?"
'Not tho poets, though," he quickly
replied, "for the poet's provinco Ib not
tho hot-house, but the open garden of
nature."
"I am surprised, John—or—Mr. Jones,
to find you bo sentimental."
Miss, I havo chosen this modo of lifo
merely to indulgo my sentiment. I
might havo gono into business, butbusl-
ness is a worm that enters Into tho bud
of fancy; I might have chosen a profession, but tbo cheating at law and tbe
blundering protonses of modioine are
tbo stabbers of imagery."
"You quito surprise mo, Mr. Jones.
Do you read much?"
"I am not ft great reader, but an
ardontono. In litcraturo I havo my
loves, and I am truo to them."

You are, In my opinion, a noble

You forgot that I am your fathor's

"No, I do not," sho replied. "I know
thnt you aro a coachman, but—but—"
"Hutwhat, miss?"
"Do not call me miss. The word Is
harsh."
"Itls not bo bright, but fn ray case

Sho caught her breath with a quick
sigh.   "You may oall mo Pearl."
"Let mo call you something olso."
"What olso?"
"Something sweeter—my dorling."
Ho caught her in his arms. "Angel,"
bo said, "will you bo my wife? Will

"Yos, n thousand timos yos," sho

"Pearl, I have something to toll you."
"What Is It, love?"
"Something that will make your heart

"Tell me, love."

Sho broke loose from him. "What,

"What's tliis!" exclaimed tho millionaire, coining upon them.

CAST  ON  A  BUOY.
The Thrilling and Perilous Adventure oi
Two I'lnrky Hoys.
Ata picnic hold at Port Plekons, Fin.,
last summer two young men, Max Glim-
and Jake Korschqimer, wont out in <•■
small boat for a row along tho bnr
While tlmy wero trying to round Sunt:
Roan Island their hunt was drawn int.
tlie current, and in spite of all their ol
forts they woro horno rapidly out towan-
tho Gulf.
"If wo only bad a flag or somethln."
said Jako, "wo could oall holp from tie
shore, p'r'apB."
Max's fertile brain quickly devised u
signal. lloi.li youths wore whito cotton
shirts, nud in an instant Max bad pullei
his olt nud was waving it on his oar. H*
stood up in tho boat, tho bottor to K
seon from shore, antl vigorously waven
his signal of distress.
Tho boat suddenly sworvod, and Mu>
lost his hiiliiuee and fell overboard. Th.
lighterart tipped, Jake slipped to thn
side, and Die next instant both boj
were in tho water. Jake succeeded ii
getting :i bold on tho sido of tho boai
and Max, who was buoyed up by tho oar
which he still grasped, soon drifti*
alongside where be could seize the boai
Neither Jake'nor Max could swlu-
llow long thoy could maintain tliot.
priisenlisituation was uncertain. Tin.'
wore in constant danger from shurl-
Fortiniiitely. sea-buoy No. 10 was rlgb
in t tlielr ooiii'So. Tho boat drifted
against it antl stopped.
"Lei's'got on the buoy,".said Jake
''It's our bost chanco," and suiting ti-
notion In the wont he soon clinili-
upon it. ami tbon reached down am
helped ilfwc up beside him. Tholr boat
drifted away whilo they wore attempting to right it.
MeuiiLitoo tbelr friends on tho shor
had seen their flag of distress and
understood their danger. Thoy wer
frantlo when they saw Max fall. The/
ran to tlm life-saving station for help,
and a boat at onco started to tho rescue.
Hy some mischance tlio life-saviii'!
orew failed to discover tho youths on
the buoy. They soarched tho Uulf for
tho great pr part of tho day, but at
length thoy gavo up, thinking tho
sharks had devoured them.
A boat from Itarrancns happened along
toward evening, and, fortunately, camo
nonr onough for tho yonng men's cries
to bo hoard. Thoy wore soon released
from thoir unoom for tain-' position, aftor
having boon ovor flvo hours on tho
buoy.
"Wo liko to havo broiled thero In the
sun." said Max, "and at ono tlmo six
sharks wore swimming noar us. It
thoro'd boon any son on, 'twould 'a' boon
all day with us. If tho waves had
struck us, wo couldn't havo stuok thore
a minute."
VIOLETS AND  PANSIES.
They Can lie Ralnml In Winter Outside o.
a Oreon-1 Inline.
To grow violets or panslos outside of
a greon-hottao ls considered by practical
gardeners one of tho easiest things to
perform, according to tho Philadelphia
Record. Many florists koop thom ln
cold framos exclusively, for, as a rule,
tboy bavo not room for thom In their
green-nouses, unless a houso is built on
purpose for thom. Thoy may bo grown
In pots, as window plants, provided
plonty of air oan be given on sunny
days, and astoady temperature, betweon
85 and 55 degrees, oan bo kopt up. If
kept In too high an artificial temperature they will not ilowor much, but will
make up in red spidor what thoy lock In
blossom. A geranium, a carnation and
a monthly roso may be wintered nud
flowered at n low tomporaturo If plonty
of sunlight prevails.
Tho violet wants to bo kept cool at
all times if It la oxpeeted that It will
fulfill lis mission. All tbisdoes not Imply thnt the tomporaturo of a violot
houso or framo should novor be allowed
to run up to sixty degrees, bocausi
sometimes the heat In tho daytime h
not always undor control. The sun may
sometimes make the atmosphere undo)
glass warmer than tho gurdunor would
like to havo it, but to raise tho sash
only ono Inch would tot tho frost in and
do moro damago than the heat. In such
aenso a littlo too high temperature Is the
lesser evil,
A good placo to grow violets or pan-
Bles may bo constructed at tho soutli
side of a dwelling. Dig a pit two feot
deep along tho houso. Into this put a
stout frame to recolvo a common hot-bed
sash, the sash to loan against tho building. Tear down tho wnll that separator
tho framo from the collar under the
house nnd put a row of windows In Its
place. The Idea of this Is that tho natural beat lu tlio collar shall koop your
frame at a steady temperature. Al tbe
samo time you may work ovor yum
flowers, no matter what the outside
woalhor may ho, and when no air ean bt:
given from the outside lt may bo dom
indirectly from the Insldo. When the
outsido sash Is open tho Inside may hi
shut. Thus the sun will warm up the
collar, and porhnps storo a littlo lieut
for tho night. _
WAR  IS INEVITABLE.
Bat Death-Dealing Inventions Will Temporarily Retard It,
Captain E. h. Zalinski, America's high
explosive celebrity, is studying things
military and otherwiso in Paris. He is
traveling under orders to obtain such
Information as may ho obtainablo regarding certain military questions. He
has already visited England, Holland,
Belgium, Denmark and Germany and
may goto Italy.
In an interview touching tho question
of a European war Captain Zal Inski said:
"I am convinced that a European war is
Inevitable, but not in the immediate
futuro. Ono consideration alono Is sufficient to maintain peace for at least two
yeara—viz., the faot that continental
nations will need that amount of time
to equip their armies with tbe new stylo
of rifle and possibly, with modifluations,
tholr artillery, to meet tho requirements
of smokeless powder In both casos.
"In this connection I may add that
war, instead of boing bastouod by the
frequent improvements in Its appliances,
is actually rotarded hy thom, because
whonover any thing of military importance Is discovered nnttons aro apt to
watt bofore risking a conflict until they
bave tested and applied them to tholr
own uso. As such discoveries are constantly boing mado, war may thus bo
postponed indefinite^
"Hut, postpone lt as they may, the
crisis must como. When war doos come
it will bo terriblo. I have just witnessed
tho Gorman maneuvers at Hanover, and
I assure you that had those two army
corps done In earnest what tbey mado
protonso of doing, of tbo 60,0(10 meti who
went into that ton days notion tlioro
would not ho 10,000 roady for servico today. Tho rost would have been placed
hors de combat, dead or wounded. To
such a degree havo modorn improvements In life-destroying machinery added to tho horrors of war."
"What aro apt to ho the now features,
Captain, of coming war?"
"Ono will bo that smokeless powder,
about whioh so muoh ado has beon mado.
hut I am not altogether certain as to tho
futuro of this invention In tlm lirst
place it Is moro than questionable
whether tlio powder will presorvo Its
qualities long onough to mako its adoption warrantable Secondly, supposing
that difficulty overcome, there fs an objection to its goneral uso, in tbo fact
that tho maneuvers of attaoking troops
would no longer be masked, thus placing thom at a serious disadvantage. In
consoquenco armies might havo to oarry
two kinds of powdor, and tills would, of
course, he a grent encumbrance.
"Tho small boro riflo Is anothor now
thing. Tho European armies oarry rifles
to-day with a boro of about half tho diameter of those usod ln our lato wm;,
and is 7 t-2 or 8 mlllimetors. This results In an approciablo saving in tho
size and weight of tho ammunition, so
that tho soldier wbo could formerly
carry only 80 rounds can to-day carry 130
or 110 rounds."
"Is there any prospect of using high
explosive cartridges in rifles?"
"What would bo tho advantago? A
rifle hall kills or disables surely enough
as It is. Wo do not want to blow our
enemies' bodies into fragments. In
faot, wo would rather wound their men
than kill them, becauso overy wounded
man Incapacitates at least two others,
wbo bavo to look after bim, whereas a
doad man only needs burying, and even
thnt is somotimos omitted."—Paris Lot-

HOW  MEN   MAKE~LOVE,
Tour Fro ui-h ma ti Is tin* Most tuilli-nto nm
Pawls tent of Suitors.
"A Frenchman is tho most flolioa!
and porsistentof suitors,"said MiirLo If r
ton, tlio Franco-American opera bou,
singer, in a recent interview tonNei
York World reporter.   "Repel bin ail
vancosandho redoubles his attentions
If you treat him coolly, his bouquet,
generally Increase in, sizo and boaul.\
Not all at onco, mind you.   Ho doi
nothing to oreate surprise and put tli
object of his sentimental attack on tb
qui vivo.   Your true Frenchman is ai
artist In lovo as in every thing tils;.*.
Thu bouquet Incroascsin sizo almost im
perceptibly day by day, .nnd delicate at
tentions of all  kinds-wbloh serve tc
soften tho perverse heart of a woman
nro multiplied after the samo careful
and mathematical fashion.   The amount
of timo a Frenchman will glvo to tho
besieging of a citadel is, in itsolf, the
most delicate compliment ho cm pay to
tho object of bis dovotion.   And it ts for
this reason that Frenchmen aro usually
successful In thoir love affairs.  .Men win,
at first acquaintance aro positively dis
tasteful succeed in mingling their personality aftor a time so thoroughly with
a multitudo of pleasing attentions thm
tho first unfavorable impressions aro altogether oblltoratod.
"The American, on tho othor band,
carries into his love-making tbo ideas
which havo orovod sueoossful In hb
businoss. His chief object seems to be
to savo time. He measures hia success
ln lovo not so much-by what ho captures
as tho tlmo ho bas expended ln winning
a victory. Uo Is in the habit of taking
every thing for grnntod, nnd, what ib
worse, plainly shows In his mannor that
bo does so. No woman wants a man to
think that sbo Is easily won, and no
modo of proceeding could bo inoro Impolitic. Tho Americnn Is Introduced to
a lady, and in half an hour expects to
be treated like a life-long friend. I believo that in your American gamo of
poker what you oall 'bluffing* is a vory
ordinary modo of procedure. As 1 understand it, 'bluffing* ls an attempt to
convince your opponent that you bavo ■
mortgage on all tho cards in the pack
worth having, und y«'ii I'WiHy bavo nothing. That Illustrates my |. int perfectly. Au American cirrloa tho gamo of
bluff Into his ivvulng, lio practically
says: 'I hold alt tho winning cards, and
whun I get ready I will simply lean ovor
and collar tho pot.' And ho says this
wltb a confident air highly exasperating
to bis opponent, who, of course, In this
easo, happens to bo tho lady.
"In tho matter of presents the American is also vory dlfforont from the
Fronchman. Ho is more lavish than
tbo Frenchman Is, and ofton generous to
extravagance. But ho shows llttio or
no discretion, A Frenchman is Introduced to a lady upon whom ho Is desirous of making a good impression. The
noxt day be sends hor a bouquet of
ohotoo flowers and the next a box of
bonbons, it mny be woeks after tho introduction before ho will make a call,
and the diamond stago Is reached only
aftor months of acquaintances!) I p.
Whon an American moots a lady he desires to win ho will oall the following
day and bring a diamond brooch or
braoolet, Tho day following ho will
send a grand piano or any thing olso
-which happens to striko his fancy.
Should he receivo no encouragement
from tho lady nf his chuieo, he doos not,
as In tho ouso of tho Fronchman, continuo sending presents until his persistence compels recognition. He limply transfers hts attentions to some
othor quarter.
"Tho dlfforonoo between a Fronchman
and an Englishman may bo Been by tbe
way oach looks at a woman on horseback
A Frenchman looks flrst of all at the
woman) an Englishman flrst of all nl
tho horso. The American looks at botb
together."

The Sumas Wing; Hum.
Mr. D. W. Miller, of Sumas, was in
the city to-duy. He says tho ice and
wnter have made another cut into the
river bank at the landing, hut the dam
age was not so great as might have been
expected. The failure of Mr. Sinclair
to construct the wing dam hist fall wns
a great disappointment lo the people in
that locality, many uf whom still enter
tain grave fears that the river will open
u new channel inlo Sumas Luke at next
high wator. Mr. Miller thinks the
wing dam could be successfully built if
the work was undertaken at the proper
season, and if the piles to hold the mattresses were sunk close together. The
government has offered to bear half of
the expense of building a $5^000 wing
dam, and if the municipality or the
farmers most directly interested will
engage to pay the other half, this much
required work will probably be executed
during the coming season. Certainly
something should be done in this mattor,
aB it would never do to allow oven the
possibility of tho river's course lieing
changed,

life is concerned, known in the history
of the Oregon Railway cc Navigation
branch of the Union Pacific, which occurred ut bridge No. 08 over Williams
Creek, near the Cascade locks and Bonneville, Sunday murning, is taken from

delayed east-bound passengers, Mr. E.
Cannon, of the Northwest Electric Compnny, who left Baker City on Friday
evening last, the following details of the
dreadful accident oil Sunday murning
were obtained : The train passed over
bridge Nu. 4(1, over Williams Creek,
where the accident occurred, on Saturday afternoon about 3 o'elook. After
encountering a slide to the west of tlie
bridge, they had returned lo the Cascade lucks until the slide could be cleared. An engine and caboose, which had
been brought from The Dalles, were
coupled on, and with the crew of the
passenger train and a number of section
men, about thirty-live, started out to
clear the slide. Crossing the bridge lo
reach the place, Ihey worked until dark,
when they returned to the Cascade
locks for the night. Next morning
(Sunday) the same men, with an engine,- lender, caboose and necessary
tools, storied for tho slide. The section
men were in the caboose. Engineer
Jack Goorgo* mid Fireman Geurgo Bav-
erv were in the cab, aud Brakeman Ben
E. Merrick was standing iu the gangway. Just as tho engine liad about
cleared the trestle, whieh was some fifty
feet in length, the underpinning sup-
porting the second aud third west bents
wus washed away by the roaring torrent
and under went the caboose with its
load of human beings. It pitched head-
lung down Ihe ravine, fifty feet below.
Nothing but the presence of mind of
Engineer George prevented the ongine
frum going dowu. Wheu he felt something wrong he looked buck nnd snw the
caboose swaying. Ho pulled tho throttle open una just succeeded in reaching
terra timm, with his two back driving
wheels banging clear oil' the truck, us
the muss went to the bottom of the ravine with a crush.
