Emin Pasha Dead again.
The Bev, Mr. Swaun, a missionary who has just returned from Ujiji,
on the east shore of Lake Tanganyika, aays that it is impossible to
doubt honestly tbat Emin Pushu is
dead. "The moat substantial reports reached me from four indo-
pended sources,'' said Air, Swann,
"and all agree aa to the details. Tbe
Arabs everywhere in Africa are rejoicing over bis death." According
to the reports received by Mr.
tiwaon, Emin bad arrived ut tbe
residence of Seyyd Bin Abed, in the
oountry of the Enias, io the Eastern
part of the Congo State, i party of
Arabs approached and asked Emin:
"Where are yon going?" "To tbe
coast," was Emins reply. The loader
of tbe Arabs, wbo was armed witb a
scimitar, then stepped up to Emin
and said: "You are Emin Pasha
wbo killed the Arabs at Viotoria
Nyanza." Without waiting for an
answer, he strnok off Emm's head
with the scimitar. Emin's body
was thrown to the Etnas, wbo ate it.
Subsequently, tbe Emus murdered
Emin's Nubian followers aod at
them. Mr. Swann says tbat these
details have bean so often repeated
that in Ujiji nobody has the slightest
doubt as to tbeir correctness.���Vancouver World,

Ad incident occurred at one of our
leading hotels on Thursday evening
wbioh may serve to poiut a moral, and
adorned a tale. It happened thusly. A
gentleman who if not a Chef is nn'
doubly an excellent Cook, desired to
stndy the stars from the rear garden of
tbe hotel. To enable bim more easily
to accomplish this useful object, be sat
down on what was apparently the
wooden bench or seat thoughtfully provided by the genial host for the comfort
of visitors, But alas I What sounds of
woe filled the air and made the welkin
ring I Tbat seat was a porenpine, who,
objecting to being sat upon with no
ceremony, erected bis quills with disastrous effect. Tbe patient is doing
well, and tbe porcupine whioh weighed
abont 30 lbs. is probably interred.
Moral, take a light.
This neighborhood is fast bscoming
a groat place for game. On Wednesday
last we noticed two of our most esteemed
citizens walking down tbe street each
carrying a gun, and from the elegant
taper waist of one of them was suspended an immense quantity of grouse

whole hear was seen all at nnce quite
reoeutly, near tbe ranob occupied by

river; and a very few nights ago the
loud squealing of some pigs away in tbe

some danger near. Several shots were
fired but fortunately nq one waa hurt.

Nakusp, Aug. 29th.
Preemption is much iu vogue ut
present iu and around Naknsp. A no*
valley hua been discovered about 40
miles down Arrow Lake which bids fair
to equal the most fertile parts of B. C.
Some of the pre-emptors who have recently returned say that besides being
valuable for agricultural land it is a
hunters paradise, for running short of
grub they had to kill a deer, and
brought a fine set of horns iu tbeir velvet back to Naknsp. They say the
benches above the valley are covered
with herds of deer uud cariboo,

Luko where we aro iuforoioil the crop is
not only Iirst class iu quantity but in
quality also.

Trout Lake City, Sept. 2nd.
There is but little news this week,
the prospeotors takeu advantage of the
flue weather to remain in tbe ranges.
With the encreased facilities for the
transportation of freight iu the mountains there is no longer any necessity
for prospeotors to come down to tbe
Lake for store, tbe pack-trains beiug
able to take goods almost to the claims
for a comparatively small consideration.
Bush tires are many and frequent,
though hitherto tbey bave uot beuu of
a dangerous character. The bush between Mr. Hurrisou's Assay oflico and
the old oamp has been completely burnt
down and Hardscrabble flat has been
for the past ten days a perfaot sea of
flames, Trees of immense size, many
of them ten and twelve feet in diameter
are continually falling with a aoise like
thunder, sending up showers of sparks
and fiery fragments which set fire to
other trees and so keep op the conflagration. Mr. Gilbert Rankin has been
bard at work for some days burning fire
breaks to prevent the fires from reaching Arrow Lake trail and dropping burn
ing trees upon tbe unwary traveller.
Some exoitement has been oaused by
tbe report as yet unconfirmed thut the
Cauadian Government intends to reoall
bills of small denomination and replace
them with silver dollars, purchasing the

Tin* Beasey Children's Concert.
A concert which a person cun listen to
for hours without tiring, and then after
tbe last number ou the programme is
rendered will still keen his seat and call
for more, is indeed a rarity. Suoh is
the concert given by the Beasey children, who will perform in Peterson's Hull
here uext Wednesday. ���
At u recent concert giveu by them in
Victoria, Miss Jennie Beasey for an
euaore to a piano solo played "Gen.
Sherman's March to Heaven" composed
by herself, aud for which she received
a letter of thanks from the United
States Senate. She was recalled three
times after rendering her violiu solo,
and indeed tbe audience seemed to be
almost unreasonable iu recalling the
little ladies on every ocoassion. When
little Violetta Beasey bad furnished a
difficult Violiu solo, flowers were thrown
from tbe balcony and two encores followed.

him powerless now ? Whut nattered to

said scornfully -,' and all the time, all the

perhaps you call it also sucb names as you
call hers. Go to ber, your wifo; I never will

Lauraine, was I cruel, was I unjust? God
knows, Oh, the bitterness, the agony, the
shame of that night. I felt as if 1 hated

had belonged to another, held her to his

whether willingly or mercifully did not
matter. Love, youth, joy, hope, all seemed
to die out of my heart. Nothing ho said
Boomed to soften mo. I would not listen, 1
would not yield, I would not pity. He lett
me, and I never saw him again. The next
news I had was that he had gone abroad on
foreign service. I have seen his name from
time to time, but of his life, tho life I onco
so fondly hoped to share, 1 know nothing."
Lanrine touches the trembling hands.
"You were hard on him, I think, she says,
gently. "1 suppose he thought her dead���

" Oil, yes, and doubtloss he believed it.
he could not have dared to offer such an insult to me, or my family. I!ut what I
ro eutcd was that he should have kept the
story back, that he should have pretended
that. I was his Iirst, his only love, and all
the time she had been his wife. I could not
forgive that!''
" But, my dear," says Lauraine gently,
" you may have had his first, real love. The
ether was but a youthful folly, a hoi-headed
infatuation, Does any mun come to us with
his heart pure and free '! Few, I think, if
any. We cannot judge them by ourselves,
that is why so many women wreck their
lives. They expect too much, o man ever

She hesitates and looks compassionately
at Lauraine's sad face. ''You must try

that your duty to him demands even
more than the sacrifice you have already made? 1 know it is hard, terribly

comprehension between you, and your
heart is aching with this forbidden love,
and hc must seem in a way hateful; but

"Yes," Lauraine says, faintly, "I see."
"Duty demands much, but it also repays
much, " continues Lady Etwynde, gently.

breakfast-table. "Why could tbey not

"What i.s annoying''"questions Lauraine,
looking up from her chicken cutlets at the
clouded, handsome face opposite.
"Why, those Americans ; one meets them
everywhere! llortense tells me they ar-
rived last night-that Woollfle woman, you
know, and her niece ; and they have the
next rooms to mine ;and> of course, we will
meet thcni everywhere ; and oh! I am so
sick of thom, you can't imagine I"
".Mrs. Woollffe is a very kind-hearted
woman," murmurs Lauraine. She is pale
and languid, and licr eyes have a weary,
sleepless look in them tbat tells of many
hours of wakefulness.
She and Lady .lean are alone, it being
too early for the other womon, too late for
the men,
" Kind-hearted I" echoes Lady Jean.
'' My dear, so is our greengrocer's wife, or
our dressmaker, for all we know ; but that
is no reason why we should receive them in
our drawing-rooms, Now, I have dono my
best to avoid this dreadful woman for two
seasons, and here she is, next door to me!"
" You are not bound to associate with her,
if you aro so exclusive," says Lauraine, a
little contemptuously. " But there are
many women reosived in society who have
not half thc honesty and sterling worth of
Mrs. Bradshaw Woollfle."
" Of course," laughs Lady dean, with
unfeigned amusement; " but honesty and
sterling worth are rather humdrum things,
don't you think ? And she is so vulgar I"
"That should be a recotnmeudation, 1
fancy," says Lauraine. "Almost everyone
is vulgar nowadays,"
"Ah, but there is a distinction I When a
woman is really well born, and has an established position, she may do what she
likes, It is these mushroom millionaires,
these nouveaiix riches, with tlieir lined
pockets and their 'piles,' made out of every
imaginable horror, aduleratiug, swindling,
coal-mining, shoe-blacking, heaven ouly
knows what, they are so odious and yet so
formidable a power! They push, they
struggle, they scheme, they, spend their
money like water, they have a craze for
society, the very highest, the very best.
They take our snubs and insults,aild flatter
and fawn just the same only for a card iu
their halls, a half-hour passage through
their drawing-rooms, the honour and glory
of a 'name' to figure in a society journal as
one of their guests. Faugh ! it is sickening I"
"But tho socioty who eats and drinks
and amuses itself at their expense is alone
to blame," says Lauraine, calmly. "If
people bad sufficient dignity and self-respect to oppose such innovations, to keep
these people at a distance, they could not
force themselves in as they do."
"But they are always so abominably
rich,'' laughs Lady dean, "That excuses
so much, you sec; and then tbey let us treat
them pretty much as we please. It is a
case of get all you want, give what you
"To me lhat always seems a very mean
doctrine," says Lauraine, gravely.
"Doyou treat iMrs. Bradshaw Woollffe
as an equal, then?" asks Lady Jean, ironically.
"If you mean do I know her one day and
: and cut her the next, do I go to her balls

must say���nn. She comes to my house, I
go to hers. She was extremely kind to me

. is not very ladylike, 1 acknowledge,
| but I should be sorry to hurt her
feelings because of that. I do not consider a lady can ever alfect her own digni'y
by her behaviour to those wh un society
counts her inferiors. For my part I like to
be consistent. If we receive such people on
acciunt of their wealth, we take them at
their own valuation. We have no right to
smile on them one minute and insult them
tic next."

Jean, with Boms asperity, " I suppose that

natured men "
" Pardon me," interrupts Lauraine, very
coldly, " 1 would rather not discuss my

might suppose that I scarcely felt inclined

" Perhaps I was selfish in my grief. I

" What put that idea in your head ?"

Does it not arouse very sweet emotions ? It
ought to."

Francis, savagily. "You know, or ought to

Only ths other day an account was given
of a meteorite which fell near Beaver
Creek, Washington. It was reportod as
bursting with several sharp reports in
quick succession, the tirst explosion being
the loudest. Tho noise was heard twenty-
five miles away and was mistaken for thunder or a blast of dynamite. Following the
reports was a buzzing sound. Soveral
fragments of tho missile from tho sky woro
picked up.
" It is a mistake to suppose that
meteorites burst, iu tho proper sense of the
word," says a scientist. " But il often
happens that they aro broken to pieces on
striking the atmosphertj of tbe earth. This
may seem surprising, bht let me call your
attent'on to an analogy, Strike the surface of water with your list, and, though a
fluid, the resistance it opposes to thc blow
seems almost as strong as if it were solid.
Now, the meteorite is moving at a tremendous rate of speed, If small, it is set
on lire in an instant by the friction of the
air, and after glowing for a moment brightly, is consumed.
" On any night this summer you will see
' shooting stars' now and then. They are
meteorites, whicli, on coming into contact
with the earth's atmosphere, are set, afire.
Thi i is not surprising, inasmuch aB they
approach the planet on which we live at a
speed which often attains forty-four miles
a second. By causing the destruction of
meteorites the atmosphcro servos as a protection for people on tbe globe, who would
otherwise be pelted by such missilcB to a
dangerous extent, it is estimated that
not less than 10,000,000 of tbem, big enough
to be visible to the naked eye, strike the
earth every twenty-four hours.
" By contact with thisplanet the meteorites are raised to a temperature which
reaches from ,'1,000,000 to 4,000,000 degrees
���high enough to consume the hardest
known substance almost instantly. Thus
only thoso of large size reach the earth
before being entirely burnt up. The greatest
number of such bodies can be seen just
More daybreak, because by tbat time we
arc on the front side of the globe as it moves
through space. The elevation at which
most of them are visible has beenfound to be
between forty-five and eighty miles, very

tion. What these (lying bodies are is a
question that has been much disputed, but
it is considered most likely that tbey are
the debris of broken-up comets. In one
recent instance the correctness of this
theory has found striking proof. That was
the case of the comet of Biela. It was discovered in 18*27, and was again observed in
1832, 1815, and 1852. In 1846 it had split
into two parts, and in 1S72 it failed to
appear when and where it should have
done. Evidently it had been smashed up,
and prediction was made that there would
be a great meteoric shower composed of the
the remains of the lost comet. This prediction was fulfilled,
"Certain groups of meteors move in elliptical orbits around the sun. Occasionally,
the earth passes through their clusters
producing what are known as meteorio
showers. Such showers occur annually from
the ilth to the 12th of August, and there is
a similar display in November once every
thirty-three years. Thc stream of the
August meteors is estimated to be from 5,-
000,1100 to 10,000,000 miles thick. The
earth, though traveling with a velocity of
2,000,000 miles a day, is immersed in it for
several days.
"The fall of meteorites to thc earth is
sometimes accompanied,by a great display
of light, occasionally illuminating an area
of many thousand square miles, When
such au "event occurs at night, and by loud
detonations.so great in snme instances as to
shake houses and frighten men and animals,
the explosions are caused by the breaking Jip of the meteor. Ordinarily
you will find that sucb meteoric
bodies are coated on the outside with a
black substance, which is the effect merely
of fusion of the superficial material by great
heat. A piece of Biela's comet was actually
picked up in Mexico in 1872 at the time of
the sliowcr ol ils' remains. Naturally it is
considered interest ing.
"Sucb great interest is taken In meteorites that all of-those collected have been
carefully catalogued, Thoy are mostly
composed of iron,with usually a percentago
of nickel'and cobalt, and sometimes copper
and tin. It is customary to saw them Into
slices, which is a laborious process, for
sale or exchange among museums, 1-ome-
times the slices are prettily polished, or the
cut surfaces are etched with acid so as to
expose thc crystalline structure. This
structure is in no twosuch bodies exactly the
same, and the differences arc thought well
worth studying. Attempts have been made
to counterfeit meteorites, because they are
so valuable, but without succeBB."

dominion, with kindness, also with justice,
near the margin of the spot. This down
is usually so minute that it requires a keen
or practised eye, or the aid of a magnifying
glass, to detect it. It is made up of the
external spore-bearing filaments of the
fungus, and when ii is visible there is
danger ; for it produces the spores which,
falling to the ground and being carried
down to the tubers by rain, produce in
them the dreaded disease ; or being wafted
by the wind to healthy vines and neighboring fields, produce in them the samo dangerous state of things. It often happens that
blackish spots very similar to those caused
by the potato fungus, appear on the leaves,
but no fungous filaments can be detected
on their lower surface. These spots may or
may not be caused by the mycelium of the
fungus; but unless the spore-bearing filaments occur on them, I do not consider
tbem very dangerous to the crop. The
vines may be attacked at any time from the
middle of June to the middle of September.
In 1SS1I, I observed, says a writer in Country

thought best to leavo the tubers in thai
ground a litlle longer. It was a great mistake. Wet weather ensued, and when, two
or three weeks later it was dry enough to
resume digging, it was found that the
blight had done its work and that a very
large percentage of the crop was lost.

Palpitation of the Heart
By palpitation of the heart is meant the
sensation either of irregularity in heart
action or rapidity of heart beata. The person who experiences it is usually alarmed
by the symptom, and calls in the doctor.
But in most cases of thia sort which are
brought to his attention, the physician finds
nothing out of the way with the heart, and
hence of danger to the individual. The cause
of the sensation is olsewhere. In the majority of instances she real trouble is indigestion.
In almost all cases of actual heart disease
no intimation of it is transmitted to the
patient by any irregularity or like sensation
of heart, rhythm.
As a symptom, palpitation is valuable to
the physician, iu that it directs the attention
of the patient to the heart. An unusual
sensation in this region usually leads one to
consult his physician at once. Symptoms
felt in other parts of the body usually wait
for " the more convenient season."
Doctor Anstin Flint was once summoned
to attend a young lady dying of heart disease.   The family informed him that his
presence was wanted merely to satis,   ,,
lady's friends, since they all understo '
fatal nature of her malady. od tbe
The patient lay in a room from which
not only light, but everything that might
lead to theslighteBt nervous excitement was
excluded. It was suggested to the doctor
that an examination of the chest bc omitted,
and that all communication with the patient
should take place through a friend, lest tbe
exertion should result in immediate dissolution.
To this the doctor objected. When admitted to fcer presence, he found that she
answered his questions in whispered monotones. H-.animation of the chest showed
that there was no disease, and consequently
no danger. The story was told to illustrate
the importance of thorough examination
before deciding on an opinion.
Palpitation does, however, undoubtedly
occur in cases of real disease, and whenever
it occurs its cause should be found out and
Among the common causes of palpitation
are to be numbered the excessive use of
tolwcco, tea, coffee, alcohol, or of certain
drugs, hysteria, excessive exertion, hunger,
privation, fatigue, fright or loss of sleep,
aud excesses of any kind.
How to Get Sleep-
Sleep rules have an addition. It is to
place the right hand on the forehead and
the left at the back of the neck, while
counting forty-nine. The rationale of this
process ia thus explained by Dr. Salisbury.
Tlie palm of the right hand and the fore
part of the body are both plus (or positive)
magnetic poles. The loft palm and tbe
buck part of the body arc minus (or negative) poles. Like poleB repel, and by thus j
placing the palms of the hands over the

as if a smelter oould lie erected ond
worked at a very handsome profit.
It is with great satisfaction that
we see our views, expressed in those
colnrnns often enough, now being generally adopted. The particular subject
to which we refer is the great inducement to gold seekers held out, by the
Big Bend district, and the discovery
announced last week that quartz bearing CO oz. gold to the ton has been
found already this season fully we
thitik sustains the value of our opinion,
Considering the amount of the
precious metal that was extraoted in
the sixties from that distriot, nnd
the price that provisions then cost, it
stands to reaBou tbat much ground
can now be profitably worked which
was then neglected on account of the
expense. But quite irrespective of
plncer work, our opinion is that good
solid well developed quartz ledges
will be found when the country
has been prospected a little more
thoroughly than it has been so far;
for as is well known to the many old
timers in our midst, no great attention wns ever paid to hunting for
quartz; all energy being concentrated
on placer work and practioally skimming the cream only, leaving behind
much that will pay now to work
although it did not pay then.
With Iievelstoke as a base for supplies, nud a trail that is now in at
leaBt fair order, though no doubt
capable of improvement, inducemeuta
are held out to prospectors to try
tbeir luck at somethiug better than
silver, uud while wo wish them every
success we can assure them that they
havo every chauoe of attaining it. So
now boys, go in and win.

A Difficult Problem.
Too much stress cannot lie laid upon the
importance of keeping the heads of children
free front dandruff and dust, The tiny roots
of the hair must not he allowed to become
Irabi dded in a crust of foreign substance, if
one wishes "the golden locks'' to grow
beautiful and luxuriant,
Persistent and daily brushing with a soft
brush is necessary in ordei lhat tliogloss of
the hair may lie preserved. In this way
alone can he distributed thc oil, which nature has so bountifully provided, and keeps
stored in the tiny sacks at the roots of the
hair till needed, 'J'nis regular brushing
will not only impart a silky appearance to
the hair but will also aid greatly in keeping
the scalp clean anil freo from dandruff, Vet,
at this season oi the year, when the little
ones are, or ought to be, playing out of
doors, digging in their tiny gardens, or
fashioning wonderful things from the pile
of pliable sand, dust and dirt, which no
amount of brushing can remove, will tind a
lodging place upon the head.
How can this best be removed'.' "By
washing the head with the beaten yolk of
an egg to which has been added a little
warm water, then rinsing with clear, tepid
w��ter,"methiiiks I hearsome of you exclaim.
Ves, I admit that the egg is excellent, but
this necessitates a laborious process from
which tho wos ones invariably shrink. A
much simpler method is to use a fine nail
brush warm, soft, water and tar soap, especially if the hair be short. Tie a towel
around the little one's neck, place him in a
high chair if you have one. Dampen the
brush, rub a littic of the soap upon it, then
apply gently aud softly to the head,
Thoroughly cleanse one portion before
dampening another. Go over the whole
carefully in this way, after which rinse
thoroughly with clear water, using the
brush as before. Dry on a soft towel, then
apply a little cosmoline and bay rum, rubbing it well into the roots of the hair. The
hair not having been saturated with water
will be dry in a few moments aud can he
arranged as desired.
If it is long enough it can be brushed to
assume tint lluli'y appearance so much
sought after at present. Children will not
cry when undergoing this method of shampooing but will rather laugh saying "'tis
gay sport I" Moro easier than any other
method, a baby's head can be cleaned in
this way. Do not resort to the practice of
scratching with aline comb as this biitaug-
ments the evil one wishes to avoid; dandruff
accumulates the more rapidly if.so removed.

uril.1 or Speculation,
The French as a nation wero very free
from the gambling passion before the war,
but since then a great change has taken
place. Horse racing has undergone a great
extension, liut by no means in the same
proportions that betting on horses has increased. It is the book maker, not the
jockey, who has done the mischief, Formerly the French never bet on horses except at the race course ; they went to enjoy
the spectacle. ?Cow most of the belting
goes on in cafes and wine shops, and the
measures taken by the government of late
years to reduce the evil arising from Ibis
state of things are well known, says the St.
James Gazette.
But where the betting is concerned there
is always a way of outflanking the law and
the number of persons belonging to the
petite bourgeoisie and the working class
who spend all the time they can steal from
their regular employment, at the house of
the sporting cafctier and mastroquet increases rather than diminishes. The cafe-
tier himself, although his business is to
keep out of danger and to make as much as
he can from the others who are drawn into
it, is sometimes entangled in the same
meshes with his customers, or allows the
shrewdest of them to victimize him. Thia
was the case with the man Coupe, who
kept a small cafe and wine shop in the Rue

Surgical Operation.
A Chicago special says:���A surgical case
of unusual interest to the profession was
recently received at Provident Hospital.
The patient, a strong young colored man,
bad got mixed up in a street brawl, and was
stabbed in the left breast by an assailant
who wielded a sailor's knife. When brought
to the hospital the injured man was very
weak from shock, internal hemorrhage, and
loss of blood, and by the attendants he was
though1, to bo dying.
On examination it was found that the
wound in iho left breast was a diagon il cut
about four inches long, beneath the fifth and
sixth ribs. There was also every indication
that the cul was very deep, and il puzzled
the surgeons uot a littic to see the man still
alive when It appeared probable that the
knife had reached his heart, Kverylhing
possible to secure rest foi the patient waa
done and preparations wero made for an
opuration early on the following morning.
The heart being involved in the injury,
the patient was no! etherized, bul am b-
thosiawas produced by the use ofoliloro-
form. Then iie was taken from the wheel-
bed and placed on the operating table.
Tne operation did uot last very long, but
it was most delicate as well as daring. Tho
wound was carefully opened and tlie wails
were held apart while the surgeon dexterously removed parts of two ribs. Then
deeper explorations were made, but with
the utmost care, until at last the unconscious man's heart was laid bare. It was
found that tho pericardium had bcen cut
with themurdorona knife, am! thatthe
point of the weapon had actually punctured the heart itself. The wound was, in
fact, of such character that few surgeons
would have hesitated to pronounce it fatal.
But in this case the patient's condition
seemed to bo in his favor; neither his temperature nor his pulse was extremely high.
With dexterous hands the surgeon exp or-
ed every part ofthe wound, while he proceeded with thegreatest delicacy amleaulion
to dress the injury and close the cut in the
pericardium. Vessels that had been severed were secured with artery clamps and
tied with ligatures of catgut. A call for
sutures was theu made, and after every
precaution had been taken the wound itself
was partially closed at the outer surface.
A small rubber tube was left in the wound
for a fow days, which served to drain off
into the outer dressings all fluid exudations.
Since the operation the healing process
has been going on admirably, and the patient gives every indication of recovery.

The above would be a golden maxim for
workers in every line, but especially so for
the average housewife. Whether it be
from the varied and perplexing nature of
her duties, or the need of their prompt performance, certainly it would seem that she
ia liable to overwork. The usual routine
of housework is of itself absorbing. The
measure of duties seems not ouly full but
running over, and it from any cause the
work becomes complicated, or there is any
deviation from the usual course, it must of
necessity bear heavily upon the endurance
of the housewife.
Washing, ironing, and biking days, with
their attendant tasks of preparing meals,
and all the other details of everyday living,
require not only skillful and busy hands,
but a clear head to plan, manage and direct
theso various operations and by degrees to
bring order out of chaos. It should be the
aim of the housewife to consult and favor
her own strength first of all, and endeavor
so to arrange her work as to accomplish it
with the most ease. There are many labor-
saving devices and each woman knows of
simple methods of relieving tired muscles,
and sparing feet and hands,
liut just here, paradoxical as it may
seem, comes iu a difficulty made by the
ambitious housekeeper herself. Not content with doing heroic work in one direction she cheerfully attacks, with almost
fanatical zeal, the stronghold of dirt in another, aud endeavors to condense into the
wakiDg hours of one day, an amount of
work which ought to be distributed cer
The washing has perhaps been done with
unusual ease, and stimulated by success
other tasks are essayed instead of taking
needed rost. Tlie hot suds suggests various scrubbings, the cleaning perhaps extending to the windows, which must be
brightly polished. After the dinner work
the clothes come with such tempting freshness trom the linos that ironing is begun,
and in order to utilize the extra heat, baking is done, It is a marvel if the latter
part of the evening is not devoted to seeing carpet rags.
While this work has been carried on with
a great deal of enthusiasm it is noticeable
that ou the following day there is not so
much desire to excel. Even the usual and
necessary work drags heavily, and languor,
headache an I debility make life miserable
to the weary woman who now works me-
chaaically and without interest. What has
been gained by this Immoderate crowding
of tasks'; True the heavier portion of tlie
week's work has been done, but at what a
cost ! Weary and worn, with unstrung

death ; and, having brought his wife to the
same way of thinking, he shot her,

Vinery ofa Greenock Ship,
The great ocean race from San Francisco
to Queenston���a distance of 13,000 miles���
between five large British ships has been
decided, and has been won by the four-
masted barque Penmore, of '2353 tons, Captain Maxwell, belonging to Mr. J, D.
Clink, of I Ireenock, which vessel was towed
into Queenston Harbour on Monday night
at nine o'clock. The Penmore left San
Francisco on the 21th Maroii last, thus making the passage in 114 days. She sailed
with the Bowden, of Liverpool; the Lochee,
of Dundee; the Lord Templemore, of Bel-
1 fast; and the City oi Athcuu, of Glasgow���
tiie captains of the competing vessels staking *.'0 each, making a sum of ��250 for the
winner, the second vessel saving her stake.
Thus Captain Maxwell, of the Penmore,
wins ��2(10. The passage, although a good
one, is not exceptional, as the voyage haa
been frequently accomplished by other
vessels under 1110 days. There was a fresh
breeze prevailing all day from tho northwest, with clear weather, but there was no
sign of any of the other competing ships oft'
the coast up to Monday night, Captain
Maxwell states that he had an excellent
run of 40 days from San Franicaeo to Cape
Horn, and 34 days from there to the Equator; but had a protracted passage from the-
Equator to Queenston, having experienced
light winds and calms. He further reports
having seen some iee in the South Atlantic,
but was not in close proximity to it, and it
in no way impeded his progress. After the
first day out he lost sight of the other competing vessels, and did not seo them afterwards.

Aberdeen, in all the towns and districts

Bpiouous sincerity of the endeavor of the
Countesa to awaken a larger interest in
Irish cottage industries, end to stir up the
principal people locally to the duty of encouraging those, and the late-t exemplification of her desire to use every opportunity
for the purpose, brightly oro wn the work
in whicli she has so long been em-aged, and

rendered by her Ladyship at Chicago, Ireland irom end to end' is stirred m the cause
of industry.    This we consider a  uoble

whatever our future may be, whether our
institutions are shaped forua in one way or
the another, the historian must Bay when
writing the chronicle of tlie time  that,
amid llie strife and anger of debate which
separated man from man, and intlamed controversy  to   the  pilch   of  exasperation
a   movement   went    forward,   gracious,
useful and kindly, calculated to have lasting moral and material effects in which all
classes and men of all opinions must sympathize and share.   The benefit bestowed
by Lady Aberdeen during her tour has been
that of impetus and inspiration supplied
afresh to an enterprise  whioh otherwise
might have lagged.   It has had its checks
and difficulties,   But these have not overcome the sanguine hopefulness and patient
energy  of the noble lady whose presence
everywhere has led to the revival of such
handicrafts as are suitable to the various
localities.  From what has happened during
the journey of Lady Aberdeen, and from
the healthful tone of the addresses presented to her, and the welcomes accorded to
her earnest and touching replies, we augur
a better day for our manufactures, which
require  for their development the education not only of  the  hand  but of  the
mind and heart.   There must be created,
first the strong disposition to sterling work
which has been the greatest  source of
wealth to other peoples.   There must next
bc the thrift and endurance,  and satisfaction with moderate recompense, which are
the foundation  virtues of a  rising nation.
We have got so far at  anyrate, thauks to
Lady Aberdeen's example and the lessons
of her unselfishness, as'to recognize what
the fostering and encouraging o: the home
industries of Ireland mean, and how much
of permanent advautage  for the country is
involved.   The duty that remains is vigorously to push forward the smallest industrial undertaking in  any  place,  however
remote, where there is a chance for it, in
the expectation that such  an influence set
well agoing will roll on, gathering strength,
until there will come the time of looking
back with the most ungrateful recollection

Machines for raising water may be said
to bs as old as civilization itself, and tlieir
invention extends so far beyond written
history that no one can say when the art
of lifting and distributing water began,
says a writer in the Engineering Magazine.

synnges were ever fitted with inlet- and
outlet valves, thus making ths single-action
pump, is not known ; but bellows consisting of a leather bag set in a frame and woi k-
ed by the feet, the operator standing with
one foot on each bag, expelling the inclosed
air, the exhausted bag being then lifted by
a string to refill it with air, implies the use
of a valve opening inward, and it is difficult
to coDceive ofa continuous operation without one. A representative piece of mechanism occurs frequently on the sculptures of
early Egypt. It has the appearance of.and
is generally believed to be, that of a portable pump. The hydraulic screw is alao
attributed to this people, but tlieir main
reliance seems always to have been the
shadoof, seen everywhere along the banks
of the Nile, an invention so simple and so
well adapted to their needs that it remains
to-day substantially tho same as it has
through all the centuries since history began. The same may be said regarding the
chain pump in China, an invention the
origin of which antedates the Christian era.
This simple machine, which seems never to
have been improved upon, is iu such common use that every agricultural laborer is
in possession of one. Whero irrigation is
conducted on a larger scale the chain pump
is made proportionately larger and moved
hy a very simple tread-wheel, and still
larger ones arc operated by yoking a buffalo
or other animal to a suitable driving
machine, Tho application of steam to raising water is of uncertain origin, Long before thc Christian era certain applications
of fire to vessels containing water.by which
effects were produced calculated to astonish
ignorant worshippers, were practiced by the
pricats of Egypt, Greece and Rome ; but
their knowledge seeina never to have been
turned into any channel of aecular usefulness.

Oue of the best of the addresses presented
to Lady Aberdeen was by the Harbor Commissioners of Drogheda. " Your keen per-
ceprion and appreciation of the skill and
deftness desplayed by our Irish youth (they
say) have been fruitful of the most happy
results. Many an Irish home has been kept
together, aud hundreds of the best of the
bone and sinew of the land have been ablo
to obtain a means of livelihood, which but
for your labors they would be obliged to
seek iu another and less sympathetic country," The skill and deftness cinnnot be
questioned. It needs instruction and guidance. It is a capacity and little more in
many places where there are hands ready
for even delicate work if trained. We do
not expect that within a very short period
the miracle will be wrought of utilizing
those qualities so that profit may be gained
and the continuance of the local industry
guaranteed. What is 'juite clear already
is this, that not a single speech,
visit, outlay, or effort to teach,
has beeu lost which ha9 been put forth by
Lady Aberdeen or by others. The process
of education has gone on more or less seriously, and what has been in this direction
won never will be lost. The gospel of industry is universally understood, Ths
disgrace of idleness as well as the misery of
it, is comprehended. What now only we
have to ensure is the tractabieness of the
workers, as to time spent, remuneration
claimed when an elfort is new or young, aud
a market may be uncertain. The fruit of
Lady Aberdeen's visit in one way usefully
might he to induce those locally in influence
to cultivate a sounder public opinion as to
work and wages which would nurse our industries and multiply their opportunities
of facing competition. .Vow that Lady
Aberdeen is leaving our shores for Canada,
we shall earnestly expect her occasional
promised return, and hope that wheu next
she passes through thc western towns and
villages that she has doue so much to cheer,
she will rind that the seed sown with such
assiduity and personal anxiety has flourish-

Human Hair the Longest-
The study of the hair upon human species
offers an extensive field for inquiry, and
one whioh presents many unsolved problems of the first order of importance. Why
man, as a species, should present the kind
and thc amount of hair which be does is
variously explained, and the diileroucea
between the varieties of the liuinsu race
are so great in this respect that one of the
most popular subdivisions of species is
founded upon it. Tiiat the human family
have the longest hair of any species of
animal is a well known fact, but why they
lost it ovei most of the body is a subject
tor much curious conjecture and speculation. TROUT
