A fire occurred on Crescent Island, about five miles from town,  yesterday morning at 10:30 o'clock,  resulting in the total destruction of  a storey and a half dwelling house  and wood shed, the property of  Harry Burr, who resided in tbe  premises with his family.  The fire is supposed to have originated from the chimney between  the ceiling and roof, when it was  discovered the fire had gained such  headway it was impossible to save  the building. Every effort was  miide to save the furniture, and a  portion of the contents were rescued. The loss is estimated at  $1,500.  During the past few months aud  at the time of the fire, carpenters  had been engaged   on   improving  LAND-HARRIS.  The Rev. I. G. Matthews, arrived in Ladner on Tuesday afternoon  and on Wednesday evening united  in the bonds of matrimony two of  our well-known young residents.

The hour of the ceremony was 8  p.m., and the bride was attended  by Miss Lizzie Hopcott while John  Harris supported the groom. About  forty relatives and friends were  present and remained as guests at  tbe banquet which followed.  The young couple will reside  with Mr, and Mrs. Harris for the  present,  LEGISLATURE ITEMS.  Reports from Victoria state that  there is every reason to believe that  the lieutenant-governor will refuse  to give his assent to Bill No. 16.  The bill to amend the South African Land Grant Act was intro  duced. John Oliver and R. McBride both protested against the  practice of bringing forward bills  before they had been distributed  among the members.

At present the provincial legislature   of  British   Columbia stands  alone anjoiig the legislatures of the  dominion as having no party lines.  The tjme Is at hand when local polices will Jiave to be carried qut on  peasu.es    not    men.        Electors  throughput the prqvince want to be  goveme4 by principle when choosing their representatives and candidates at the next election will have  fo state the plaaks of the platform  pn  which   they  desire  to stand,  {.heuld   they fijil   to carry out the  ^vjshes   of their constituents they  pan then be called upon to resign  the trust placed in their hands.    Ii  a teacher were asked by an enquiring scholar what is the difference  between the government and the  pppositiou now   assembled at Victoria, the   teacher would be   at a  Joss  to  explain,   except that the  the former are the " ins" and the  }atter the "outs."     This is a poor  |dea to give to the rising generation  pf the object of parliamentary institutions.   It would simply convey  the idea of a me ital cricket match  jn   which   the whole object of the  pne side is to remain in and score  as many runs as possible, while the  pther side is sti iving to bowl the  others   out,   even   if  they do not  catch them out or stump them.  The people of British Columbia  have had   considerable experience  with mongrel parties in the legislature, members of which blow from  one side tq the other at will.     The  PPP9sition to party lines has faded  away, the most enthusiastic having  seen the error of their ways and the  the cjugstion of party lines js unanimous.  The most instrumental factor in  Convincing this province for party  lines has been the inconsistent way  in which nieuibers of the legislative used their position and power,  jn supporting the opposition and  thep goTernmpnt and furthering  schemes whjch loqlc at "long distance" as a graft.  we must be grateful for small me.-  c'.s-, as only $2,000 will be left or  general repairs ard ih: payment (f  a portion of the rpjad superintendent's salary £hd offiVe expenses.  This is so because o.ily £4,000 will  hi nrj(ropriated for the whole dis-'  tret.  The Deila people can console  themselves with the knowledge  that we are honest sufferers and  that, unlike our neighbors in Alberni, we have some one higher  than what is called "a road arc  bridge member" to represent us it  the legislature. Facts and figure.'  speak for themselves. '.For the  Alberni district the estimated expenditure is $13,500, which approximately pans out £75 for every vote  cast at the last general election, ot  $50 for every free and independent  on the list. Both the appropriations are for "maintenance and repairs." We are patriots [?] all, but  it is an open question whether it ii  better to be lean for the sake ot  pure politics or secure the bird ir  hand to hasten the development of  our district. It is well that our  readers should ponder over the  problem as the time of choosinc  their cuurse is at hand.  A bill has been introduced by  Mr. Curtis to amend the Supreme  Court Act so that any railway company shall not be restained from  constructing or operating their line  by any plaintiff or defendant. In  lieu ofthe ordinary injunction such  company maybe ordered by a judge  to pay a sum of money into court to  cover any loss or damage which  might accrue pending the settlement of an action at law. At tie  same time the applicant may have  to furnish security to indemnify tlie  railway company.  jUST WHAT YOU NEED.

Blxmarck  tnd  Grant.  Sidney Whitman In his "Personal  .Reminiscences of Prince Bismarck"  says:  "Bismarck _ intimate friendship with  Motley, the historian, is well known.  He was n'lso particularly attached to  George Bancroft, so that when it became a question of Bancroft being recalled from his post of United States  minister at Berlin Bismarck wrote specially to his friend Motley and begged  him to intercede with the president to  _llow Bancroft to remain, and he did  ..main.  "Bismarck told me that when General Grant came to Berlin he accompanied him to see one of tbe reviews at  the Tompelhofe. l'eld. Grant was not  well that _ay, and they had to drive  out in a closed carriage. Grant looked  downcast and told Bismarck that it  worried him to think that he was to  meet the Prussian soldiers sitting cud-  died up in a 'carriage like any ordinary  civilian. 'Never you inind: that. General  Grant,' Bismarck said. 'You may sit  liore hidden from view, but our soldiers are well aware what sort of fighting man ia in this closed carriage.' "  A Parable Impeached.  The 'parable of the  wise man whe  built his house upon a rock and of the  _ther man who built on the sands was  uttered before the "house with modern  Improvements" had mude its appearance or modern sHnltary S-ience had  _een evolved.   A rock foundation is un-  Impcii.hnble for stability, but it may  he very bad when It comes to a matter  i*Of drainage, wbethe. it be for the dis-  'f)!>.lll of sewage or of surface or ground  water,   A cellar excavated in the rock  i:< usually a wet cellar, because the water leeches through the crevices and  senilis in tbe rock, and it is both diffl-  '•cult and expensive to trench and drain  f|>i .perly about the walls of a building  'In a medium so hard to excavate.   To  lie sure. If the rock drops away quick-  '4y on a sharp grade this difficulty may  _e altogether  a  minor one.    A good  _ravel soil is>one of the best to build  ■Upon in respect both to drainage aud  to the stability of the house, and com-  tmct sand, if not subject'to the action  •of running water, is a _iost excellent  foundation aud a thoroughly good nie-  _lttm.  Tie   '.mi eel.  The question is mooted whether the  vultury knows of its quarry U? sight or  smell. How does it communicate the  news of a feast to its fellows? A tiger  had been killed.  Colonel Bamsay ordered the carcass  of the skinned tiger to be dragged out  from uuder the thick mango trees into  the open. Takln;,' out his watch, he  asked us to make a guess as to how  long the vultures would take to clean  the flesh off tiie bones. Some one snid  half an hour. As there was not a vulture in sight, this seemed eve 1 betting,  but Colonel Ramsay gave them ten  minutes, which proved to be correct.  There was one vulture at first seen  souring round aud round very high up  in the cloudless sky. He closed his  wings and dropped on to the carcass  with a swoop. Iu two minutes the sky  was full of vultures, all concentrating  from every side on the spot, and arriving with all the Impetus their drop  from a great height gave them as fast  as it takes to tell tho story. Then  there commenced a frightful scene of  literal carnage, every one tearing with  sharp, hooked bill at the entrails first,  then at the flesh, all lighting for room  to get a piece and tumbling over one  another with frantic hiiste.—"The Forests of Upper India and Their Inhabitants," by T. W. Webber.  liiKitne ou One Pofnt.  Erskine mentions a case where a per-  ; son who hud been confined iu an asy-  '< Ium prosecuted -his brother aud the  proprietor for 'imprisonment and false  duress. The prosecutor, himself a witness iu support of the indictment, was  put into the witness box and examined.  When Erskine came to cross examine  him, he tried to discover some lurking  alienation of mind, but during a cross  examination, conducted with all the  skill and sagacity of which he was  master, for nearly an hour he was  completely foiled.  But a gentleman who had come accidentally into court whispered in Er-  skiuo's ear that the witness thought he  was the Saviour of mankind.  On receiving the hint Erskine made  a low bow to the prosecutor, addressed  him In terms of great reverence, respectfully begged to apologize for the  unceremonious manner In which he  had treated a person of his sacred  character and called him by tho name  of Christ. Tho man immediately said:  "Thou hast spoken truly. I am the  Christ."  __  Eastern Catalogue Prices on  Fencing.  9 U»r, 49 iucli high, 70 cents per rod.  8   "   45   "       "       62        Other Styles>3and heights at like prices  J.

Young ladies in Russia are not at all  '.averse to long engagements and use  all sorts of artifices to stave off the  ■wedding day as long as possible, while  Jn Shim, where OKI mulds are unknown,  ias all girls marry, the '-recognized  'length of an eugilgement is one month.

In no country in the world arc  •courtships so abnormally long as ln Bo-  liemia, where engagements commonly  last''from fifteen to twenty years. Iu  fact, there recently, died at tlie age of  ^ninety-nine an old man who had been  courting for seventy-five years aud wko  (eras'married on his deathbed.  What Holds the Novel.  Frank Norris, author of "The Octopus" and "The Pit," was a most virile  writer aud a man of decided opinions.  He was wont to say of the great factors iu molding public opinion that  "the pulpit speaks but once a week,  the press is read with lightning haste  aud the morning news is waste paper  by noon; but the novel goes iu the  home to stay."  Tills opinion was aired by Mr. Norris  In the lobby of a hotel in a small town  in Illinois. Among those present was  a country editor, who was prompted to  remark that the novelist's views reminded him of his dog Wolf. Wolf persisted In running away from home, killing Chickens and annoying children in  the community. At hist a method was  adopted by which the dog was confined to his own homestead,  "Chained him, eb?" was tbe thought  voiced by several of the company.  "Yes, sir." declared the editor. "And  if your modern novel goes into the  home to stay let Wolf remind you that  It's on account of the binding."  The Original Carnation.  The original carnation was a five pet-  nled bloom native in the south of Italy.  It was imported into England about  tho time of tho Norman conquest. As  early as 1019 horticultural works gave  minute directions for the cultivation of  the flowers in winter. The carnation  Industry has risen to considerable importance during the last ten years, according to Town alid Country. As  2,500,000 of young carnation plants are  sold each year and florists produce an  equal amount grown by themselves  which are not sold, the cutire production of young carnation plants approximates 5,000,000 aud upward a year.  These plants are grown under glass  during the winter time for cut flower  purposes, producing an annual average  of more than 100,000,000 blooms. What  becomes of this enormous number of  flowers Is somewhat of a mystery.  They are put to innumerable uses.  A Marble Slab.  A'Wrlt'w'in London Nature describes  a white marble slab 2 Inches thick and  _5 1»y'70 inches, which is supported on  stone posts aud sags in the middle  three inches out of level. It furnishes  -evidence that marble is ln reality a  fluid of enormous viscosity. This has  some bearing on the question of tbo  frigidity of -the rocks composing the  crust of the earth and tbe gradual adjustment of tbe earth's contour under  gravity. Tbe slab was placed In its  ■present position ln 1853.  Political ICi'iMiomistn.  While great fortunes und great Industries have almost Invariably been  created by uneducated men. parvenus  unembarrassed with learning, who  taught themselves what they found  necessary to know, we find, on tlie other hand, that those men who have made  commercial science, political economy,  I heir study have uot shown any suc-  eess ln business and have remained  theorists. Most political economists  nave had to live ou their pen. Mr. Cob-  den went bankrupt In business. It is  (rue that Rlcardo was well off, but ho  was a stockbroker by trade, and with  him political economy wus only a hobby, not a serious result. It is strange  how few business men of the first rank  have a good word to say of political  economy.  Spider* _at Their Mother*.  One of tbe most unnatural things In  nature, if the expression is allowable,  Is the manner in which the young of  the common wolf spider treat their  mother. After the little creature has  laid her eggs she envelops them in a  silken covering, so as lo make a ball  about the size of a pea. and this she  carries about with her wherever she  goes and will defend it with her life.  When tho young are hatched, they  climb on her back, giving her a monstrous appearance, and ride about until nearly half grown, and as soon as  they discover their strength they fall  to and devour their mother. As a rule  tho maternal relation is recognized in  the animal apd insect world only as  long as the necessity for protection exists, but instances of the young actually devouring a parent by main force  and common consent are extremely  rare.—London Nature.  i o Intelligent Business  Men and Farmers:  Insure your Stocks, Houses and  Barns in the Anglo-American and  Equity Firf Insurance Companies.

For a whole year the famous English  physician, Dr. Hadcliffe, attended a  friend without a single fee pusslug between them. As ho was leaving after  his last visit the patient said: "Here,  doctor, la a purse in which 1 Lave put  every day's fee. You must not let  your kindness get the better of my I  gratitude; so please take it." The gen- j  erous physician put out his hand to reject the purse, but the chink of the gold  was too much for his amiable resolution, so he put it in bis pockotrsayli-g,  "Singly, sir, I could have refused them  forever, but all together I am afraid  they ore irresistible."  Queer Way lo Kill Finn.  Natives of the Torres strait have an  original method of killing fish. In  places where turtles and large fish are  wont to congregate they erect platforms, and as soon as a great turtle or  fish appears the man on the nearest  platform throws a harpoon 'and almost  invariably strikes the animal. After  this is done one of the other men jumps  from his platform with a rope, which  he fastens around tlie tail of the captured fish. One end of this rope remains tied to a platform, and thus the  fish or turtle Is soon safely secured. It  is likely, however, to plunge about a  good deal, and therefore those men  who are within reach of tbe rope are  I obliged to take care that It does not  trip them up with it.
