Edison's phonograph has scarcely, ns yot, passed
the period of "novelty ami curiosity," but many practical applications of tho instrument hare already been
suggested, nnd hnve in some enfcos been actually carried out. There is ono application, however, that we
have so far not heard mentioned, and that is the instruction in the pronunciation of foreign languages,
It in impossible to learn to speak n foreign modern
language by self-instruction, since tbo true pronunciation can only be acquired by personal intercourse with
one who is a native or equal to one in linguistic perfection. In tbe future the publishers of manuals of
instruction in foreign languages will find it, most likely, a paying undertaking to publish a phonogrupuic
key of the various exercises, thus enabling the learn-
ur to acquire the correct intonation and pronunciation
by causing the phonograph to repeat the word or sentence until it has been perfectly  imitated by himself.
The height of sea waves has long been tho subject
of controversy, Eminent liydrographers hove insisted
that storm waves were usually nut more than 10 feot
high, aud raroly over 20 when tho conditions of tho
sea wore most favorablo for wavo development. Many
a traveller, reclining on a cabin transom, hns looked
up through the skylight to seo tho waves rearing their
frothy crests, ami wondering how oven a 20 footer
could show so high above a ship's deck. Many o
Bailor dowsed by on up-driving wavo while lying out
on a topgallant yard has, doubtless, shaken his hood
incredulously when told that tho highest waves wore
not abovo 20 feet, the rest being "heel" of ship and
dip of yard. Now, howover, comes expert testimony
to prove that storm waves are often 40 foet and sometimes from Oil to 70 feot in height, In the recent
British scientific expedition wine instructive data weru
gathered by a sensitive aneroid barometer capable of
recording its uMrjmu rise a-ul fall by an automatic
register. "With a sea not subjected to an atmosphere of unusual violence, it indicated an elevation of
40 foot from the wave's huso lo crest." Admiral Fii/.-
roy, after o long'.lories of careful liioaSiU'Oineiits from
the mail! top of his ship, came to a similar conclusion,
AcoonPINO to the reports of Lieut. Croziur who bus

difficulties that intorforo with their common adoption,
namely : The irregularity of preissure, the quickness
with which tiiey deteriorate, and, tlie intense bent,
which burns tho shell ami affects the accuracy of fire.
France, Germany, and Switzerland have issued tbu
new powder for genoral use, but the discovery is still
in an experimental stage. Switzerland is tho only
country that has adapted aud adhered to n definite
standard of smokeless powdor for any length of time.

HOME AND FOREIGN MISSIONS.
St. Andrews Presbyterian church was comfortably
tiliud hurt night to listen to  Bev. 1). .1. MeD icll, of
Toronto, lecture ou the subject of "Mfatious." Tho
reverend speaker is a dark oomplexloncd energetic
looking mail whose every gesture is expressive of the
deepest earnestness. As 11 speaker ho hits a How of
impassioned eloquence that carries conviction in every
word. His voice at times trembles with the intensity
of his thought, and his audience last night listened nu
if under u spell. The Rev. Mr. McLaren, of Vanoouvor, and Rev. Tlios. Haddon, of the Ruforinod Kpisco-
pal church, officiated iu prayer. Bev. Thos. Scolder
presided. Thu speaker presented many valuable
thoughts for tho consideration of bis hearers, He
drew glutting pictures of thu work of inisrinnnriei in
India, China and Japan, ami graphically described the
progress of those pioneers of Christianity since the beginning of ttie prosent century, On tlie home missions
ho had much to say and ninch to suggest, and mnde
very cogi'iit reference to the evnngeliv-ition of tho
Chinoso Immigrants who'itro with us now.   In their
reo'oiwtii'ii from hontl.enlsm and idolatry, ho bow a
prncticul solus ion of tho vexed Chinoso question. As
to the missionary societies existing as adjuncts to
churches he thought they woro vory harmful if thoy,
in any degree, relieved tlie moss of the congregation
from any responsibility in mission work. So long as
tiiey acted os a committee for tho congregation's efforts they woro valuable; when they ceased to do so
antl became the only thing connected with the church
in touch with tiie heathen world, their existence was
detrimental. Tho reverend gentleman said that many
enthusiastic youug men composed of the right material
wore coming forward as missionaries, ond thu pros-
poets In tho" mission field were bright and hopeful.
He described the difficulties which hod attended the
introduction of Christianity into Japan. The Jesuits
who hud visited thot place lirst hod by their dork
plotting and intrigue completely prejudiced tiiu
Japaneso mind against Christianity, ond hod, iu banishing the crafty myrmidons of Loyola, utterly proscribed the mil-si inurics or promulgators of the Christian faith. It took many years of hard work to overcome tho damage dono by tho dark ami cunning conspirators, the Jesuits iu Japan. The eloquent speaker
spoko highly In praise of tho Indian woman, Ramobai,
who had devoted her life to .educating Hindostani
widows. Tho work wos a noble one ami would undoubtedly hove au immense influence iu Christianising
Hindostun, The iuidtenco dispersed very mnch
plciised with tho lecture and the lecturer, and deeply
convinced of the truths he had uttered.

What looks liablo to boa political sensation is in

Mr. Edward Farrar, furnished information to the
United States teiiato committee that Canada would

charged that it is part of the plan to mislead Amoi icon
sentiment by supplying figures as alleged faots showing
Canada's potation to lie critical. Somo one having
stated that tiie senate committee was posted iu this
way at the instigation of the Dominion government,
llie Mail explicitly denies the charge.
In tho Quobto legislature yostoitlay, Hon. Mr,

INFLUENZA^
Thoro were altogether nbout three hundred distinct
epidemics of influenza in Kuropc between 1.101, when
thof^Viso wns first noted in Malta, and I80O. In
1720 tlie whole of Europe auliurod severely. Accord-
to statistics published by tho Novoe Vroui'yn, the disease caused 1)08 deaths in London in one week nml in
Vienna (10,0'JO persona were uflietod. In 1737 uiul
1743 there were further outbreaks, ami tho deaths in
one week in Loudon amounted to 1,000. In 1775
domestic animals wore first attacked by it. In 1782,
40,000 persons fell ill of it iu St. Petersburg in 24
hours. In St. Petersburg quinine is now served out
daily to the troops, mixed with vodka.
THE LATE LADY DOUGLAS.
The Colonist says Lady Douglas, relict of the late
Sir James Douglas, second govornor of Vancouver
Island, had beeu failing in health for some months
paSt, ond for the past few weeks had been unable to
leave her room. Death was the result of a complication of diseases induced by the accumulating weight
of years. Nolio Connolly, tho daughter of James
Connolly, factor in tlio Hudson's Boy Co's sorvice, was
born at Fort Asuiuibnio in 1822. In 1837 she wns
married at Fort Vancouver to James Douglas, afterwards governor of Vancouver Island, and iu 1848 she
accompanied her husband to Victoria. Sinco that
dnte she has made this city her home, by her unvarying kindness and her unostentatious Christian charity
ministering to thousands, who will learn with regret
of her demise. She has led a life of absolute retirement since thu death of her distinguished husband in
1881. Tiie deceased huly leaves to lament hor a family of four daughters, sixteen grandchildren and five
great grandchildren. Of the former, Mrs. D. R, Harris is the only one residing in Victorin, Mrs. Dallas
living in England, and Airs, de Wicderhold and Mrs.
Busliby in California. Of the grandchildren Dr. J. D.
Helmcken, Mr. H. D. Helmcken, Mrs. McTavish and
the family of Mrs. D. R. Harris nre at present in this
city. Tlie announcement of the decease of Lady Douglas Wfis telegraphed Inst night to the relatives abroad,
and tho arrangements for the funeral will bo decided,
upon later.
WANTED THE WHOLE WALK.
Il is painful to hove to witness such an exhibition
of boorlshness as camo under the notice of u large
number of the people coming from St. Andrews' Presbyterian Church last night. Two men were approaching onu another of the sidewalk, on the narrow
port which has been trampled hard. The smaller of
the two politely took half a step ofl' the path, expecting tlio other to give the same courtesy, Not he, howover. He kept right ou, and went smash against the
other, sending liim staggering back into the deep
biiow thut filled liis shoes ami wet him considerably.
Still tho smaller man, who must have possessed a very
mild temper, to say tlio least, said, "I beg your pardon." Tlie overbearing pedestrian only grunted out
something which could not bo distinguished, probably
not very complimentary. It has since boon learned
that tho smaller of tho two men is 0 particularly muscular citizen, ond besides possesses very educated
hands. So that the old adage is still ns truo its ever:
"Brave is he that can but won't, but pity shows where
most 'tis needed." A great deal of tin's sort of thing
eon be noted on our streets any day. lt is tlio act of
a bully and a coward to attempt lo thus trample over
wbat ho (very often erroneously) thinks weaker became smaller people.
HE WENT HOME.
Lock-up keeper A, J. Smith wns taking his constitutional along Columbia street lost night about 10
o'clock, ond near the Queen's hotel ho encountered a
gentleman lying on his bock iu the middle of the sidewalk, vociferously proclaiming for the Information of
the publio his firm determination not to go home till
mornhiK, ond, if ho were Interfered with, perhnps not
then. Mr. Smith was much affected by this display
of Spartan-like heroism, and the hero being small of
stature and light of limb, os well os very mellow, Mr.
Smith, with characteristic Sunioritaiiism, conceived
the brilliant idea nf conveying him to tho Wanderer's
Refuge on Provost stroot. Before, however, he could
carry tills gonomns intention into oxouulbn, soveral
comrades of the "gent wat wos spfllicated," who had
stolen off at tiie glitter nf» the German-silver buttons,
came speaking bind; ami offered to tnke thu bibulous
citizen to bin own homo, To this proposition tlie officer consented, and the crowd picked up their companion and marciicd oil' with bim, not without considerable difficulty, as ho kicked and struggled like a ,
very Tartar.
PASSED AWAY.
It is with regrot wo announce tho death of Mrs.
Catherine Fit/sinuiions, wife of Mr. James Fltzflhh-
mons, deputy warden of the B. 0, penitentiary, who
passed away suddenly yestorday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
The deceased lndy, neo Catherine McCarthy, wos a
native of Kingston, Ont., ond came to this province
with hur husband in 18/8 011 his appointment to tho
deputy wardciishp of thu penitentiary. Almost since
her arrival in this city she hns been 1111 invalid, nud
although hor health lias uover been good of late, her
death arrived very unexpectedly, The causo of dent 1,
is supposed to bo heart failure. Mis, Pitttimiuous
wus of a gentle disposition, ami wus much beloved by
a wide circle of friends, aud the bereaved htudiiind has
the heartfelt sympathy of the whole community in
his loss, Tho deceased wns only 4ti yenrs of age.
The funeral servico will bo held in the Catholic cathedral to-morrow morning nt 0 o'clock, and the body
will bo removed to the Roman Catholic cemetery, at
Sapperton, for interment, at 10:30 o'clock.
