It takes a long time for a well-known
fact to pass from the tahles and statistics
of a board of health through the imagination to the conscience of the people.
But, when it is clearly understood thai;,
in a city say of one hundred thousand
people, at least three unnecessary deaths
in a thousand occur each year, some- «
thing will   happen.    That  means   the j ai'OKANE,
unnecessary deaths of three  hundred  V^r-.^T i *rn

they are preventable, somebody is responsible for their occurrence.*  Three

the civilized world would ring with the
news.    The difference between the intentional production of the causes of
diseases and the li'eglect of them after
they are known to exist is small.   When

how they may be prevented, and choose
whether they will or will not apply the

the intentional production of disease and
the intentional neglect of that which
causes disease will be too small to satisfy
the conscience of those who allow the
process to go on.—Christian Register.

A Double Action Well.
A flowing well at Isabella, Mich., produces wrigglers in great numbers.
These little animals are constantly
bursting in the water in the, barrel, and,
coming to the top, unfold wings and fly
away. The atmosphere, however, is so
cold that fchey do,not get far before they
fall into the snow.

Dew is a great respecter of colors. To
prove this take pieces of glass or boards

damp, but that the red and the blacls
will be left perfectly dry.
Enormous Passenger Traffic.
Within a six mile radius of Charing
Cross, London, there are 270 miles of
railway and 255 stations, and within, a
twelve mile radius over 400 miles of line
and 301 stations. The average number
of passengers carried on a week day by
the public conveyances of London, including omnibuses, is 2,500*000. The total for last year is 777,000,000.
A Valuable Consignment.
A consignment lately passed through
Berlin on its way from Paris to Russia.
It consisted of valuables amounting to

A. Piece of Literary News.
The Critic announces an interesting
piece of literary news nothing less than
the purchase by Dodd, Mead & Co. of
New York ofthe manuscript of "The
Poems of Two Brothers," the first pub-
Ushed volume of Lord Tennyson and his
brother Charles. Four thousand dollars
was the price paid for this coveted manuscript, and whoever buys it now will
have to pay more than that, for the present owners bought it to sell at a profit. I
don't suppose that they will have it long,
for the more a collector has to pay for
this sort of thing the more he wants it

TilCRSDAY,   AUG.'J,   1894
W.   B.   Capi-S Jives--in Tennessee,
and   is   an Adventisfc in   religion.
Members oi this religious sect believe
in keeping Saturday instead of Sunday as a holy  day.    Some time ago,
Capps, who is a poor man was arrested for working 011 Sunday and fined.
He appealed his case to the .Supreme
Cfo.urt, but the judgment of the lower
court was  affirmed,  and   in consequence,   as lie  did  not, or could not
pay his fine he will have to serve
about fifteen months in prison.   Religious Liberty    Associations in the
United States are making a loud cry
"":: the matter, claiming that Capps is
a martyr to a tyrannical law.    We
do not think so.    He has no right to
break the law of the State he livesin.
I'd his religious scruples aro such that
he considers it a sin to work on Saturday lie should keep the two days
sacred and not defy   the law of the
land.    There are too many pleas and
pretexts in the United States for disobeying the law with impunity. The
sooner the courts over the line deal
out justice with a  sterner hand then
they have djne in the past, the sooner will the constant turmoil and strife
that is ever present disappear, and
other nations will not sneer as much
as they do now at their judicial ad-
While we  think the laws ofanv
country   should  be   upheld by the
citizens, we feel sorry for poor Capps.
Fifteen months in prison tor working
on one Sunday is  too much. ' Capps
should, come to this Province, where
the clutch ot religious superstiution is
not very strong, and law is dealt out
with a more modern tinge to it, then
they have down in Tennessee.
election followed by a drouth, and as
a grand finale the forest fires furnish
a brilliant but mighty expensive illumination. Today the ozone is permeated with a smoke that is not thin
and the sun looks like a ball of red
fire at a melodramatic entertainment
in. a small town, while the air is
filled with white cinders, gently
dropping on the burning sands of Nakusp as gracefully as the Beautiful
does in January, when the sands are
not burning.
What is next on tlie programme of
events, no one can tell. It might be
an earthquake, or perhaps an era of
good times might set in. Anything
but the latter for us, We could not
stand it. We are too conservative.
We have become so accustomed to
every stage of adversity, from wet
feet to waiting for a pass on the Kaslo
& Slocan railway, that we could not
possibly bear-to have our pockets
lined with yellow.coin, and oitr cheque
good at any bank.
If such a thing should come to pass
we would go out to some sylvan glade,
lie down on the fern-covered terra
firma, turn our optics towards the
starry firmament, take off our boots,
swallow Brown's press, muzzle and
go up, or down the golden stairs to
another sphere in our stockinged feet.
Force of habit is very strong, and to
lose the hard times we have cherished so long would be too much to bear.
We could not do without the excitement of dodging the sheriff, and
sleeping on the lowly but virtuous
floor. We do not want quail for dinner
or a leather bed to slumber in. They
would ruin our health. ■ Still we are
nof- afraid to bet a Cariboo' creek
placer against the Bank of Montrerl,
that it would be our luck to wake up
some morning and find an excited
mob waiting to pay a years sub., in
frigid cash, to the only paper on the
great   Arrow lakes.
The Kaslo Times is deceased. It
whined a. little before its death, and
as the ( -. jzens did not come to. the
rescue i. ad to peter out. It was'
run priiK , ily as a campaign sheet
in the •, >i of the Opposition can

loss of .■■■'- . i votes. The proprietors
were i - .'-.■ ihir in the community,
and e^ '.■*..■!■.* were ashamed of the

It would seem that Providence had
a special spite at British Columbia,
and more particularly the Kootenay
section, this year. Trouble has been
dealt out in wholesale quantities.
■Last- summer it was the break in the
silver market; in the spring aqua.:

;Would »t not be as well for Canada
to become more progressive, and cut
the political string that binds us to
England? Is the connection worth
anything to us? It would, surely
make us more independent to stand
,alone, and be called a nation instead
of a colony:- We are old enough to
walk now, without the assistance of
the Motherland, and we think that
ir would not take much persuasion to
be allowed to step out, and put on
our long pants. Countries are like
men.    When they have some one to.
lean upon, and run to with their
troubles, they are not as strong or
self-reliant, as when they have to
fight their own battles, and live or
die on their own merits.
The destruction by fire of the str.
Columbia, the best and most popular
boat of the fleet owned by the C. &
K. S. N. Co., is a severe loss to the
district, and more particularly to her
owners. The company haa met with
several small losses aireadv, and
this calamity coming in the dullest
season, that they have ever had is
very trying to those.interested.
We miss the Columbia as though
some friend had left us. We have
enjoyed many pleasant trips on the
cremated steamer, and often from
the lofty pilot-house have we . feasted
our ideality upon the matchless monn-
tain scenery- as it seemed to glide
past in panoramic procession. It was
always delightful to travel on this
palace steamer, and her destruction
will be regretted by the travelling
On Wednesday last Nelson was visited by Misslmandt and Miss Maxwell
who, representing the Dundee Courier
a paper of standing in Scotland, are
travelling throughout Ganada as
guests of the Dominion Goverment.
Their .stay in Nelson was short, but
the few hours they had to spend here
were absolutely wasted. Mr. Bigelow

Why Drunkards See Doublo^
In answer to the question; -"Why
ioes a drunken man stagger in. his gait
and see double?" Dr. J. W. Crosswhite
said vesterday: "Double vision is due to
a want of haririony in the muscles which
control the movements of the eyeball.
This is owing to; a change effected in the
nerves or nerve centers by the alcoholic
poison. Inflammation of the nerves and
also a lack of energy in the centers of
the brain are produced by overdoses of
alcohol, and to this disturbance in the
center is due the double vision, as also
Via staggering gait produced by the loss
of harmony in the muscles of the limbs.
Should the muscles of each eyeball not
act exactly as one then a different part
of the visual field is exposed to tlie two
roii-aa. Each retina,';-acting independ-
tVutly, sees the object, and the impressions
conveved to the brain
(1 o able instead of ■ single
are   therefore
Were the hi us
cles acting exactly ..similarly the 'object
would be seen by the same, part of-each
retina and thft.impressions,therefore conveyed to the brain would be single, ex-

A Tale-Bearing-Sliark. |
A British  ship  bound  for  the West j
Indies   once fell in with a suspicious- ;
looking craft having the appearance   of :
a slave-trader, and gave chase.    During
the pursuit somethi g.was thrown over- i
board from the  pursued  vessel,   which ;
was captured and taken into Port Roy-  I
al to be examined.    The  ship's papers ;
were .not   forthcoming, and  the  vessel  ;
was in a fair way to  escape condemnation, when a ship came into port which
had caught,a shark, in whose  stomach
was a. tin box containing the missing
paper.;.    These clearly showed that the
captured craft was engaged in the slave
trade, and proper punishment was meted out to   her officers.      The   tin box
which the sliark swallowed is now in
the    museum   at    Whitehall    Yard,

■    Oldest Colony.
Although comparatively little is known
of Newfoundland by the outside world,
two things belonging to it have a worldwide celebrity—Newfoundland dogs and
lbo/Narrows? of St. John's harbor. The
former are too well known to require any
description, but perhaps it may not be uninteresting to spend a little time in noting
a few points of the; latter. No one who
has ever seen ''The Narrows" can ever for
get them, and as St, John's is a port of call
for the ocean steamers between England
and America, they have been seen by many.
In no other part of the world is there a
work of nature like this.
W hen we call to mind  the vast number
of   shipwrecks  that  occur off the   New-
foimdland coast and on the   "Banks," we
realize how important   it is that   there
Bhpnld.be; somewhere in this rocky and inhospitable shore a refuge for the innumerable, vessels which ply these waters.-    Such
is found in St. John's harbor,   one of the
safest in  the   world.     When .the wildest
storms are raging outside, and the billows
; are dashing themselves in fury against the
; adamantine rocks, scarce a ripple disturbs
the vjlacid waters of the  harbor, for it is
securely guarded from the stormy Atlantic
by gigantic rocky hills rising perpendicularly froin the'water.    Nature has left only
: .one narrow inlet for vessels to pass through,
so quite appropriately and naturally this ia
called "The Narrows." ;
'■■■■,,   To   us it was a   surprise,   not having
known   anything of   it before we   were
; called up on the deck of the boat to see
it as; we were passing through.    The  first
impression was one of awe at its.-grandeur
and sublimity,- its  strength and massive-
ncss,,as we beheld  it in  the driving rain
; storm of an,autumn day.    After that we
behold it in every variety of the  sunshine
and   storm,   moonlight  and  starlight,   in
'■every' season bfsthe year, and never wearied
^of.'dt-j-V'when-',.sailing'..away,    out on the
; billowy Atlantic, were still to be seen those
' trim cliffs towering iip  like*- giants,   as if
the-guardians of thej laud.
I-;-; The more important cliff is on the  right
' going in; let us ascend it and find what we
can bee, for it is accessible by a long and
. circuitous road, which requires plenty of
strength and en durance. One is repaid for the
necessity of stopping, to rest  by the view
with which one  is,: rewarded by looking
"back,'; and if it' is at the time of  sunset, as
■ when-we;first'saw it,   one  is  particularly
forUinate.    ,On the horizon,   bounding the
view, lie1 the rock v. hills  for  which New-
foundland is proverbial ; these are projected
against the sky in all possible shapes, jagged. and broken,; looking as if some fierce
battle had been fought in which  they had
been worsted before they took their present
form.    Seen in the distance, they seem.to
possess  a purple-tinted  mist  peculiar to
themselves,    foiwjuo i'oliatre . but stunted
shrubs protect their sides from the stormy
. blasts which sweep them.
. From there our  gaze; falls on the far-
spreading valley below, and to those who
think Newfoundland is all barren rock thia
would  be a pleasant  surprise.    A  fairer
sight one need not  wish  to see than  the
suburbs- of St. John's, with its undulating
plain:-., containing  lakes   and ponds, trees
and    streams  and   well cultivated  farms,
dotted over with pretty  summer cottages
of  the town  people,   being   conveniently
near tlie city and yet far enough away.
Then the-city'itself looks, fair and comely., situated, or..'the side of the hill, with its.
handsome prforie buildings showing to ad-
iyd these are two magnifi-
