A NODERN POMPEII.
Awful Fati of St. Pierre Compare.
With Other Disasters.
Lust week tlie whole civilised world
wns shocked at the horrible itory of how
81, Pierre, Martinique, lu the French
West Indlea, wae literally wiped out ot
existence Iu a tew minutes, end* ao far
na can he learned, without any warning.
The estimates aa to the lorn of life vary
from 38,000 to 40,000, aid lt ls Hid that
only 30 venous escaped.    The volcano
which caused tliis fearful ha vou is little
known to tho general rentier. It Is
tin mod Mount Peloo, nml stands close behind St, 'Pierre. On several oeeasione
lately it has shown slight signs of activity, but its worst eruption before that of
last week took place early in tlie nine*
teimllt century, and did not do nearly so
niiii'h daiunge ns the latest one.
Tho swiftness of the destruction
which fell upon ill-fated St.*->Pierre has
no parallel In modern limes —that is,
from volcanic onuses. To find a cnae at
nil resembling the sudden annihilation of
life and property, one must go back to
tho year 70 A. D,, when a tremendous
eruption of Vesuvius overwhelmed Her-
eulatit'iim, 'Pompeii and Stublue, the
loveliest cities of the Italian coasts,
buryiug them to a depth of 00 foot under
scorine and molten lava.
The Vesuvius volcano rises on the
mainland about fifteen miles from the
city of Naples, and about five miles from
tbe coast. It is encircled by n railway
at tho base, and up to the height of
1,900 feet is covered with cities, villages,
farm houses and vineyards. At least
80,000 people live in the midst of ton-
tinual danger, to which they seem entirely indifferent. It seems strange thnt
a section exposed to such constant peril
should be so densely populated, and
thousands among those who brave it,
must havo witnessed tlie terrible destruction from the disturbances of 1872.
There were eruptions in 1805 nnd 1800,
which destroyed the roads, but did no
other damage, although they wore a loud
warning to all who occupy the great
amphitheatre within the range of volcanic eutnstrophe, Last May tho machinery of the railway that carries people
to the crater was partially destroyed,
but little lava was thrown out.
But Vesuvius, Etna, Hccln,tStromboli
or any otber of the European volcanoes
are the merest fireworks compared with
those in the Antics. Chile lias .sixteen
burning craters; Peru lias Arequipn and
Pitohincn; Colombia has Cotopnxi and
Antisann; California bus live volcanoes,
nud Mexico has Oroiava, Popocatepetl
and .Torullo; while Alaska has Mount
St. Ellas, which semis forth iis flnmo
and siiloko nt a height of 10,800 feet
above the level of the sen.
The extraordinary mountain of Goto-
pari* became active at the time of tbe
Spanish occupation of Peru. One of its
erupt inns in 1743 overflowed tbe adjacent
country like a vast hike, ami carried
away all buildings for many miles
around. The tlamcs ros« higher than
2,000 feet, nnd the sound ot the explosions could be beard 300 miles away;
while the quantity of cinders vomited
up was so great that the sky continued
aa dark as the blackest midnight until "i
in the nfternoon. Of all places on earth,
the twin continents of America provide
the most terrific examples of those irregularities of nature.

.Heading medical works ou disease nml

Tho reason thnt Canadian manufacturers do not secure n larger share of

OU-nOBlEAT -DESTINY.
Despite the fact that British Columbia
is at thu present moment thu only province ol* all Cauodn which Is Buffering
from dubious uf trado-we might almost
sny from pitrulyzulion uf Us entire
economic system—there is much to cheer
all who Wish the province well. To be
sure, it is gulling to hear day by day
that the factories, mines, found-ies und
workshops ot every hind throughout
Eastern Canada nro being worked to
their utmost capacity to cape with thu
deluge of orders for the best that Ihey
cuu supply, while llrititih Columbians
are wondering whether the next move
will be into thu bankruptcy court, and
everything here, is stagnant.
Yet those depressing conditions cannot
lust much longer here. Into thu North
west immigrants arc pouring in thous
ands; thu rising sea of prosperity i
steadily approaching the bouudurics of
this province; wo are between
theatres of. vast activity—tho Orient and
the Eastern Provinces and States. That
British Columbia can escape its dest
which is to become the home of millions
, oC industrious, happy and content
people, Is Incredible. The preient dull
spell is only Hooting, and will surely be
succeeded by au era of prosperity unprecedented in the aiiuals of the West.
Such advantages as nre possessed by
'this favored region cannot long lie lost
tu the notice of tho world) we are very
confident that the day of great things
is close at hand, when all who have been
tho pioneer*, through tho trying expert
enccs' of the past few years will leap
their reward a thousandfold.
Iu the following splendid sentences, d>
scriptlyo   of   British   Columbia's tn
worth to the Empire, from Ihe pen uf
Mr. Archibald Colquhoun, one  of  tii
foremost writers of the day) on Imperial
atbjects, British Columbians   may li
comfort and the assurance lhat ere long
capital and population will How in upoi
this province in mighty streams,    Mr
Colquhoun says;
"On the Pacific slope of Canada Brlf
ain has everything necessary for Ih-
creation of a fresh base for sea power
nnd among the many duties that dovolV'
upon tho Empire of Britain at this orlti
cal point in her career, none seem to iln
writer more important, than the mili™
tion and development of that mflgnifieen
White Man's Count ry, Canada, and mon
especially British Columbia.' When tin
glamor which ihe continent of Africi
has cast over Britons bus sdmowtiif
faded (as it certainly will), they will
turn to those countries oversea, iheir
own without lot or hindrance, when'
Nature has been more than bntiiHlfuI,
nnd -when', instead nf sacrificing valuable lives in a vain attempt io surmount
climnlie dlftlcilltl'es, they may found ami
perpetnnlo a race unequalled in physique
and those great qualities wlileli have
mado the parent slock so powerful."
Many marvel attheextraordinnry progress of tbe Japanese, who havo risen in
half a century from a state of pern i-barbarism ( according to European notions
of civilization) to be considered fit for a
clue alliance with the greatest empire
the world ever caw. The mystery is explained by Mr. John JoiTes hi (lie lloyal
Magazine. He says it Is all due to education jndieiously applied to brains.
The schooling the Japanese children un
dergo makes tbe lessons of our children
seem play by comparison.
