service as tbe corpse, sewed iu canvas
and weighted wilh iron, was shot over
tbe side. I have ofleo wondered how
any of us escaped with our lives. Thc
condition of the ship was abominable;
Ibe water was bad, tbere was no attempt' at sanitation. The food was
wretched, and so the brandy iu Mr,
Liverpool's j g was at the ebbtide

On the .-Mill night tbe head wind stiffened to a lier.T gale, aud iu spite of
all we "iiilT do to reassure tbe wretched
people on board, many resigned themselves to tbeir fate and few eipected
lo aee laud agaiu. Tbat uigbt two

of the seventh day was bright - aod
warm. The wiud died away, tbe wa
tainted dowu and tbs steamer liegan to
make fairly good lime. The sirk people
gradually crawled from tbeir biding
places, looking wae ami wretched
enough, but loud in Ihe eipressiou of
Iheir (banks Ibat they bad come
through the tempest with their lives
Heated ou a steamer chair I presently
observed a youug woman of eighteen
or twenty years, wbo had struggled
from below. Hhe was pale aud this,
ami bore on ber late a look of wretch
edueae aud misery. I got Ihe impression
tbat when ia health sbe muat be very
pretty, aad I recall that sbe bad a
wealth of dark brown hair, a pair of
glorious bezel eyes aud regular features,
Hhe tat watching the guilt aa they rode
ou tbe create of Iba billows, and I
thought I bad never seen a prattler

tbey teemed to he acquainted. Wr.

the luatre to mauy dull eyet. At tbit

He wae about lo place the coin ia

in due course.
The scheme has been strongly eudors
ed by the 1). C. Acudemy of Science,
it has received decisive commeiiiluliun
at the bands of Mr. K, V. Btupsrl, Director et the Dominion Meteorological
Service, Dr. Otto KloU, ussistant chief
attrouomer Domiuion observatory at
llltuwu, and utliers ul' mure ur less experience uiul prominence iu the held
uf u 11"i.uu i research.
Am,mi: the lucul advocates ol the
movement, there is none mure able or
more enthusiastic Ihun Mr. T. ■'- ll
Hliearinun, resident Duminioii uslruii
inner uud director of the Vuneniiver
.Meteurulogicttl station who hus been
indefatigable in his efforts to bring the
matter to successful conclusion. Mr. j
Mheurniun hus undertaken to provide j
the Newtooian Ki|iiati>rial telescope
measuring in diameter one hundred und
twenty inches. Tlie magnitude uf the
lusl: which Mr. Hhcurmnu bus set for
himself will be understood when it is
slated Ihut the lurgest instrument
present in use anywhere iu the world
is Ilinl of the telescope al Hie ob
serial ory of Lord llosse in Ireland
whicii measures seventy two iuches iu
diameter, due lens of one hundred
in. lies is ill exislenee but it is uot per
lut uud ii is extremely duubtiul if
lhe defects can in remedied. Mr.
Slicurmnii huwever is quite sanguine of
Ins ability lu produce an instrument
with the ijiaineter named, thus giviug
the Grouse M,u,1.1,m, observatory tbe
distinction of possessing the mi: I
powerful telescope iu Ihe world.
Those who have inspected the pro
posed sile declare that from a seien
nlie poiut of view it answers admir
uldy ull of Hie requirements uf tu ob
servalory site. As fur elevation the
I.iii, observatory is MOO feel above seu
level while the Grouse Mountain intti
I.iiiiiii will be slightly higher. The uf
im,spin in uml other couditiom are pro
tiouuecd entirely suitable for the pur
pose. From Hie jmldu' puitlt of view
uu observatory al the lop of Grouse
Mountain wuubl be an institution ul
the most attractive nature. The eon
stiiietiou of Hie (liouse Mountain Seen
i, I mime Itailwuy would render Hie
uliM-f vutory readily , accessible to thu
geueral public ul ull limes. According
lu lhe pluns ul present in mind u uuiu
ber of smaller telescopes v.n.,1.1 be In
stalled through which visitors mighl
view the heavenly bodies at any lime,
while the greal telescope would be mude
available lu visitors at ceilain hours on
staled evenings The scheme is, Ihere
fore, oue of the very highest value
lelulive to the local public and Ihe
louritl imiii.
II is a pari ol Ihc scheme lo ulli
bale tbe observatory wilh Ibe provincial university, in which case nol only
wuuld Ibe great telescope provide op
porluuily for suy students who might
wiib lo pursue astronomical research,
I ut a department would likewise be
added which would be of lhe greatest
service in connection with the engineer
iug elasses iu the innverslly.
The friends of Hie project consider
that Ihe protpeeta are very bright fur
enlisting Ihe co-opcraliou of both Ihi
In,nuni'.n atld Ihe provincial govern
mint" in it'i prion,,lum They are like
wise iu consultation with Hie Hoard
of Director! of Grouie Mountain Heen
Incline Bailway Company from whom

It ii unnecessary to dilate upon the
value to tha Nortb Shore of tucb an institution located pn Grouie Mountain.

The  many   thuusunds  of   boys  aud
girls   whu   assembled   in   the   public
■ lm.,l., of Iho proviuee yesterday for
the opening sessions uf tho autumu
term aro lu be eungratulatod ou the
advantageous conditions under which
they are privileged to work, iu the at
luiumeiit of a knowledge of the fundamental subjects iu idu,allun lt is
only a just tribute to lhe intelligence
uf thoso boys and girls to believe lhal
Ihey duly appreciate the fortunate position iu whieb they aro placed iu this
important particular. It is au errur to
conclude that (he average buy or girl
wends bis ur her way to school for lbe
lirst sessiou after the summer holidays
wilh u heavy heart carrying uuly vain
regrets for the vacation thai is gone.
This may indeed be Irue uf a very
smull fraction who uru beluw Ihe uver
uge iu physical robustness or iu mentul
staiuiua, but the iniiinal boy or ;.nl
while doubtless bidding "good old sum
niertime" goodbye with loud memories
—finds reul pleasure in reusseuiblinu
wilh his schoolmates on the schooi
grounds, he greets his teacher uguin
witn ulITilinn (or lakes his pluee in
u higher cluss with sutisfaetionj and
addresses himself cheerfully to the stu
dies which confront him, To depict
Hie average Hrilish Columbian boy ot
girl us contemplating with aversion
lhe returu to his or her studies is u re
Hcchon upuu the intelligence and the
industry of the children which is al
together unjustifiable, ll is much uear
el llie murk to believe lliut while the
iiuruiul child loves lo play, that child
likewise appreciates the efforts of his
r her parents ami of Ihe state to pro
vide "i,,, iiiiuu.il facilities such as will
lit lhe buy or girl to fill u creditable
positiou wheu the estate of manhood
or of v.,,iminiiuii,I has beeu attained
and lhal he or she is prepared lo sec

iidvuiiluges provided.
'Work while you wurk,
And pluy while yuu play,
Thul is the way
Tu be lm|,| '. and gay"
so runs Hie fumiliur couplet and it is
permissible In believe Ihut the rank
uud lile of scbool children today are
ryatallixing that excellent precept in
lu practice.
The   boys  and   girls   of   the   North
Sboro have nttuiucd u degree of sue
ess ul llle several ciumiuutiuns which
is positive evidence of the excellence
of the loilioo which is given them ami
of their readiness to respond lo lhal
luilmn by Holiest uud industrious efforl
iheir pari. A combination such as
this is bound lo win and all well wish
ers uf the chiblreu will hupe fur even
belter iinni' from tbem iu thc future
The greatest asset uf any community,
after all, is found in the wealth of
healthy, normal boys and girlt, play
tug with u will aud working hard, build
ng up strong bodies tod well equip
ped iniiuii for filling thc poiitiont in
the community aud for discharging Ihe
ii-p"inii,ibtn ■ iu life which must in

though a bylaw pussed Ihe rutcpaycrs

waa that after a few days she turned

How Drink Wai Out Out
The author has a guod deal In re
late concerning the moral excellence
of tbe Eskimos. Thus he tells us;
The Drink Evil began In HOT. Seven! men got drunk. The ciders called
a meeling of tbe men. "This now ha
bit ia bad," Incy said, "il will ruin
the people; let us cast il out,"
And cast it out tbey did.
"Kajusimavil'j" tbey said, "tbo
iniu.l of Ihe people is made up Hie
brewing and driukiug must cease." The
evil was abolished; and so by Ibeir owu
wish Ihc Eskimos became wbat they
bad always deen, a teetotal nation."
As is well kuown, Ibis peopls have
no prisons and no police, serious crime
being virtually not) eilsteot, while jn
their daily life Ibey show themselves
kiuilly, courageous aud capable, when
uted arises of supreme self sscriAee.
