Yesterday afternoon Officer O'Connell
received a telegram from Wellington to
the effect that a miner named T. J. Morris intended lo ih-Hert his young wife and
child and would pass through this city on
ihe morning train. Mrs. Morris and her
infant child arrived by tbe same train as
ber husband.
Constable O'Connell had apprised
Mayor Bate of the state of affairs and the
two of them were on the platform to
meet tbe train ns it came in. Thev held
a long conversation witli the faithless
husband, who persisted iu bis intention
of leuviiiL' the country, and it was only
witb greal difficulty that they persuaded
him to agree to give his wife

them tor the benefit oi the man's wife,
in addition to the balance of the money
promised, Morris was then allowed to
continue his journey, but a little poorer
in pocket than he dreamt of when starting. Mrs. Morris was very pleased to receive so much money in excess of what
she had been led to expect she would get.
Many persons said it would be worth
while travelling down to Victoria just to
see the surprise of Morris when he discovered he was $50 short in his travelling
funds, as being a very reckless man be
might be liable to make things move.
When Morris left he informed the
constable that he had a sister in town
wbo owed him $70 for her passage out
and that his wife could get the money,
whicli his sister would lie able
pay at the rate of $10
month,    and   when    he   arrived

garden some time lasl night ns no one

they would have seen anyone entering
the garden. An autopsy will be made

_ | San Diego, July loth. The reason assigned for this new departure on the part |
of thc ownc.s of these splendid steamers
is not made altogether clear. One thing,
however, is certain, namely that the
same P. A 0. boats which have hitherto
run from London lo Bombay and Hong
Kong, will be unable to perform the trip
across the I'aeilie, from Japan to California. No mention of new steamers is, however, made In our
advice, which should tend to throw
doubt upon what as yet appears to be
but an unatithenticatoil rumor. Even if
the report turns out to be baseless, it still
serves to show low greatly the attention
of capitalists is being directed towards
this Coast. (leorge Augustus Bala many
years ago expressed his settled conviction that in the near future, the Pacific
Coast would boast of great commercial
emporiums whicli would quickly rival, if
not excel, those on the Atlantic sea-board
and of Europe. Many of the famous
journalist's critics at the time—we remember—ridiculed tlie notion of another

of necessity, arise ere long, if from no

alone, pointing out that Nature has evidently intended four special points at
whicli trade must, sooner or later, centre.
Constantinople, London, New York, a
city on the Pacific Coast of America, and
some point cither In China or Japan.
Let us hope that the prophecy, so fnr as
this coast is concerned, may apply to a
city in British Columbia.
RED   HOUSE

MARCUS WOLFE.
Judging from the dense smoke which
overhangs the gulf to-dny we infer the
existence of huge bush Ores along ita
shores. Would it not—wc put Ihe question with all due deference lo our legislators—be possible to pass some measure I, IIIKion
which would render

better still, to a short term  of  imprison-
In-
calculable harm is done to the timber at
present existing on Vancouver Island and
the most accessible parts of the Mainland,
by these periodical bush fires which in
dry seasons rage for weeks at .1 time,
scorching up lhc younger trees with
which Nature endeavors to counteract the destruction caused by
wind, old-age, dry-rot, or In countless other ways—the great forest
giants. Great numbers of the very best
pines and cedars burn down, onlv to lie
und rot, though as we hnve endeavoured
to point out, the chief harm done is to the
undergrowth. British Columbia's wealth
consists largely in her Umber, and it is
to her that the world is beginning to
look for it's iiiture supply of this prime
necessity. Of course we admit the impossibility of preventing the settler
from burning the superfluous trees encumbering his land, and thereby fre- j
quently being tlie cause of extensive fires
taking place. What we do think, however, might be checked to some extent,
is the careless huilding of tires by
"campers out," and the throwing of
lighted matches into tlie "brush" when
the state of the weather is such ns to nl-
most ensure a conflagration. Of
course thc evil is by no means
an easy one to remedy; but
that it is an evil, and one of a very serious nature, every one must admit, lt
remains for wiser bends than ours to advise some method by which this wholesale and wanton destruction of the country's capital, which is being decreased
year by year, muy be checked. The extent to which this burning of tracts of
forest land is practised, just "for the fun
of the thing" on Vancouver Islnnd, would
be ulinost incredible to one wbo seldom
goes out of the beaten track ; though perfectly well-known to those w hose tastes or
duties lead them further afield. This
island, at any rate as u whole, can never
be an agricultural country. Nature has
unfortunately not intended such to be Ihe
case; but on the other bund she has
made up for this defect by giving us practically for many years to conic, a limitless
supply of valuable timber. This splendid
boon we maintain, it should be the aim
of those who have the requisite authority,
to conserve in the public interests to Ihe
best of their ability.

" Noumea," the town mentioned in the

New Caledonia in the Southern Pacific:
The New Caledonian papers nre silent
on the subject of u terrible malady
whicli is said to be spreading rapidly
among thc aboriginal population, but the
usually well informed correspondent at
Noumea of Ihe Paris Temps states that
out of 'Jo,000 kanakas inhabiting the

from the worst form of leprosy, that the
means of staying the plague have somewhat tardily engaged the attention of the
Council General of the colony, and that

the lepers.
A steam sloop engaged m the timber
I rude in the Isle of Pines has been seized
by five escaped convicts, who put out to
sea in her und got clear oil'. She had
been left in the charge of a kanaka, whom
the marauders stupefied with drink, and
deposited in u drunken slumber on the
beach. The vessel contained an ample
supply of provisions, as she had eight
days' rations on board for two of the
camps. Can the steam sloop referred to
above be the same whicli came ashore

W0 take the following jottings:
After a period of tearful anxiety the
farmers and stock raisers of Victoria
have been relieved by a bountiful rainfall,
which bus given the utmost satisfaction to
till parties, the ruins having been general
throughout the colony. The price of
wool has risen rapidly anil sheep owners
are consequently jubilant.
An excellent grape harvest is just finished in New South Wales, though a few
growers were caught by the rain which
caused some injury to the grapes remaining iinguthered. The manufacture
of raisins increases fast. A State School
ni Viticulture has been established.
Tiik Minister of Agriculture in his
yearly report states that the average yield
of butter was 1 Ib. to 2.01, gal. of milk
and the percentage of cream 11.40. Both
averages are better than those obtained
from grass fed cows in the United Kingdom where butter takes tlnee gallons of
milk to the pound, and nn average of ten
ner cent, of cream,
THE FOURTH OF JULY'CELEBRATION.
It has been suggested to us more than
mice during the last few days, that we
should advocate through the press the
''giving up" of our July -4tli holiday, or
rather the loose cash of which those persons Intending to keep such holiday will
manage to ease their pockets, in order
that the necessities of the people of Seattle
may be still further aided. Such a course
does not commend itself to us in the
least. In the first place our neighbors
are, so far as tlie published accounts allow us to judge—not in any dire strait.
True, great fires such as this of Seattle
entail distress and misery on many—
Ihis much we till allow ; but no good purpose is served in magnifying the evil beyond Ihe limits of truth. Holidays ure
not of stub frequent occurrence that wo
can afford tn forego them upon every pretense put forward, Besides they help to
circulate money in n manner which the |
most eloquent sermon fails to effect
We     think     Unit     our     citlssetlB    will j
find that tho Americans themselves will
observe their national holiday as usual, i
In spite of tlie fearful disasters which have
occurred so recent

other nation ever had such a chance. We
can name no other instance of a great

be divided hy a broad ocean from a possible enemy and to enjoy a great part of
a whole continent to yourself, to commence life equipped with a body of lawB
und principles of government, elaborated
for you by your ancestors in a far harder
school, is a stroke of luck that, does not
fall to every nation, ft is only fitting
that America should take "the goods
the gods provide;" and if she thinks it is
all owing to her own merit, well, others
have made the same mistake. We say it

THOSE WHO NEVER SLEEP.   A CHINESE RESTAURANT,
THE   CHOICE.
A   DETECTIVE   ON    THE    PECULIARITIES   OF   HIS   CALLING.
H.tu   French. K**;;ii-"h and American Thief
Taken Work Tbeir Pockets—Shadon-ing i
Bank Clerks—The Different Methods—A
Few Cases Recited.
Ono of the best (mown detectives in the
United States sat iu the lobby of the "Windsor
hotel yesterday afternoon, and after repeated
-solicitation by a reporter for Tho Times, eon-
■ented to talk about tho business.
"There Is all tho difference in tlio world," ho
t,uid, "between tho methods used by tho secret service agents of different countries.
People who read French novels have an idea
that tho disguises spoken of in them as being
worn by the Lecocqs of tho different stories
are something utterly untrue. Strange as it
may seem, however, it is true.
"A French detectivo who cannot so dis-
guiso himself that his superior cannot recognize him could not find employment in any
detectivo bureau. Tho disguises are wonderful, too, and uvun tho strong light of day
shows no Imperfections hi them.
THK DIFKKRENCE IN METHODS.
'"There are two sorts of detectives In
France—State detectives and tho municipal
ur city force. Among tho former no ouo
kuows who ht3 fellow detectives are, and us
thoy never work in pairs the necessity for
knowing each other is not so great-. The
working of tho French bureau is very thorough and moro liko the American method
than tho English.
"Tho latter never think of disguising them-
lelves, und go to work openly. If a bank is
robbed In Franco a new assistant teller or
clerk appears iu tho bank a day or so afterward—ho is a detectivo, of course, and whero
iu England the detectives would be called in
in front of nil the employes und ask them all
manner of questions, tho French would say
nothing, uud nothing more would probably
bo heard of the robbery until tho thief wns
caught.
"TUe English havo a great system of stool
pigeons, Among tho vicious of all classes,
male and female, aro always thoso to be
found who, for tho sako of being protected In
a certain way, carry all tho news of the
crooked work done among tho swell mobsmen, as high class thieves aro called, to Scotland Yard, whero is situated tho criminal investigation bureau. It Harry the Swell' is
flashing a great deal of money about, tho
foot is at onco reported to tho police, and if
any largo forgery or robbery hns recently occurred, 'Harry the Swell' ts liable to prove an
alibi. Inside the great portico of Scotland
Yard is a largo cose containing tho photographs of nil the detectives employed by
tho bureau, and tho crooks or thieves can
have free access at any time to study tho
faces of thoso who arc liable to bo after them
at some future limo. This stool,pigeon system is not used much in America, as the police do not put much faith in it.
"Tn France or England, if tho employe of
a big banking house Is suspected of irregularities his habits are watched and tho facts ascertained, whilo in America a man r.ill be
set upon tho track of tho supposed thief, mako
his acquaintance and ingratiate himself into
tho suspected man's confidence. He will
spend as much or more money than the suspect, and will go into any dissipation with
him. In the event of Irregularities in any
large concern tho American detective becomes
an employe of thu corporation — whether as a
porter or a director of a bank. The clow and
iho working up of it is mado much moro of
hy nn American lhan Liy any ouo else. He
will jump at conclusions from a faint something, and frequently hit tho mark, whero
tho stolid Britisher would be stumbling in
tlio dark.
"To bo a good tleteetivo a man must be
possessed of courage, brains and coolness.
Thero is no mystery, however unpenetrable
it may appear, but what can bofljved if tho
right methods are employed. There wns a
cose I remember iu Chicago somo years ago.
"A well known business man was found
murdered ono morning in his eiT.ee. Tho
crime had evidently boon commit toil tho
night before, for the body had been cold a
long lime, aud the man's family had waited
for birn to come to his homo the evening previous. His valuables had been taken* the
safe bad been rifled, and beyond tho ghastly
bullet hole tn the back of tho man's head,
thero was nothing to indicate with what the
crime had been committed. No pistol could
be found.
"1 was [ait ou tho oase and reasoned that
as the robbery was evidently committed for
gam the murderer must bo in poor circumstances, I visile*.! all the pawn shops [n Iho
city, and found t hat flvo revolvers had been
pawned between 0 o'clock tlio previous evening and the morning. Three wero 45 caliber, the siso evidently used to kill tho mnn.
Two of tho men wero well dressed and tho
other wasn't. Tho latter was described to
me, and I took tho pawnbroker down to tho
different railway depots whero trains wero
leaving. Wo went through threo trains, and
dually located the man in a smoking car. I
arrested him, and much uf tho dead man's
property wns found in his possession. It's
not much of a story—if tlio man hadn't
pawned tho pistol ho wonld certainly havo
got off, but it shows how much littlo things
imount to, and will give you nn idea of how
\ detootivo will go to work.
"Thoso who aVe intrusted with the handling
tt largo sums of money aro frequently
Matched by detectives, particularly if any
noncy is mJsaln-J from tho Institution. Bank
tlerks aro partiinlarly liable to bo kept under
-urvcilUmcc, Mot long ago a leak was known
to exist in one- of tho banks of this city
Every clerk wan shadowed by a detectivo until finally tho thief was discovered. His
mother made gOhd his defalcation, and being
'of good family 'ho was permitted to 'resign.1
"Tho lii'oof n lleteottvo is startling enough,
but it gets tiresome nnd monotonous, and I
expect soon to t tst ire. I remember ouo easo
that happened In New York. A very swell
reception was given by ono of Iho leaders of
ioeiofy. Ono nt tho guests had loft a vnlu-
tiblo solitaire in Iho ladies'dressing room on
tho washstand, nud, forgetting it, had left it.
On her return bo find it, it had of courso disappeared. Nobody knew whero it was. The
bunks of all the servants WOTO searched, but
no traco could bo found of tho jowel, which
was worth about *4,00U. 1 Onully found it
whore it had been pawned for $500 in a pawnshop by a Frenchwoman. I took tho visiting liit of tho hostess oud finally, of ter a
week's search, found thnt ouo of the guests, a
rich woman, hart a French maid, and thatshe
hud gone to Europe shortly after tho recep*
t ion.
"I had to wait for hor return, made tho
acquaintance of tho maid, nud took hor to
tho pawnbroker's whero ho identified her.
She confessed and her mistress redeemed the
diamonds and paid all expenses. I never told
on her.
"You seo also that pawnbrokers aro important factors in our business, nntl that they
aro frequently of service in detecting crime.
Still, pawnbrokers encourage robbers, for if
(hero wero no shops tho temptation to steal
would uot bo so great.
"It's'a singular business in every way," con-
(iuued tho thief taker. "Fasclnatuig in many
ways, but, liko everything else, one gets tired
of it."—Denver Times.

Pot of Delicious Tea.
lu Mulberry street, near Canal, amid the
, noise, bustle and confusion of the busy mer-
i chants of the "Bend," there is a quiet and un-
pretentious dining room.   It is presided over
at all hours of Ihe day and night by Wall
1 Sing Foo, and the business is said to be a.

j scratches upon pieces of brown paper,   Tho
! most attractive sign, however, reads us ffll-
lows; "A good diner 8 cents.7'
This was suflieieut to lure a reporter into i
j the place recently.   Tbere were none of tho j
: Oriental luxuries in sight.   Ou the walls were !
] a fow pictures of flowers, highly colored, and
a certificate that Mr. Foo, or some of his !
! friends, had attended a Sunday school, The ,
; tables were of pine and partially covered by I
a rugged material thai looked like u cross bo
! tween a dishcloth and a mop.   Mr. Foo waa '
I engaged in leveling tho solo of his shoo with
a hatchet   when the reporter entered, und,
| after glancing up quickly, wont on with his
work.   Tho re[*orter dropped carelessly upon
a utool und waited. How long the wait would
have lasted will never be known.   There was
a Sudden interruption.    A pungent odor stole !
fn from the back yard, where something was
being cooled,    it was too powerful for any
nose save u highly cultivated one.    Tho re*- j
porter tried tx> keep it back, but out it came
—adouble barreled sneeze—thatsel every-'
thing to jingling.
It struck Mr. Foo utuidship.    The hatchet
fell on his foot ami the shoe dropped into:
something  which looked  liken keg of mo- I
lasses.    There was blood in his eye and there !
might have   been a tragedy, had  not  the
innocent cause of all the commotion put un j
•.hungry look and touched his sunken ubdo-
men with his finger.
THK BEST IX TIIE HOUSE,
Mr, Foo smiled so lliat no one could tell
whether he was weeping, wailing or gnashing
his teeth as he suid:
"Wing Foo ah alio go to kiting see bah."
"All right, Mi*. Foo. PU forgive you, Now
just set up Ihe host in the house, up to th«
eight cent limit, und all will be well."
Mr. Foo jumped away witfc the air of a
man who did not understand a word that hud
been spoken. He kept out of sight for twenty
minutes and then appeared with a largo bowl
of something trteonsteg hot, which he set ou
the table and then took a seat close by. Ue
began to whistle a^eeculiar call and the yellowish soup moved restlessly in the bowl. A
spoon came with the stuff. It required somo
courage to take a mouthful, aud it wouM
take a team of horses and a derrick to get one
up to the rack ior a second trial. A mixture
of la I'd, mustard, salt and bilge water may
tempt a lugging appetite, but it is jusfca littlo surprising to the Stomach ©f a man not
thoroughly used to lhc customs of the Flowery Kingdom.   Mr. Poo took the mysterious
compound away and came back in a llttls
while with n largo platter and a couple of
small dishci.. 'ihriM were t wo slices of soma
brown material on ttie platter. Mr. Foo admitted that it was "pe-sick-re-uut-i."   Thor-*
is uo doubt that it was tho genuine goods. l%
tasted so. One of the slices was fll led with
small lish bones, and tlie other was a dainty
morsel which might liur-i been taken, with a
little imagination, ta be a bit ef Medmunv
my. There wero also wane beans, cabbage
and rice, Mr. Foo evidently runs Ins place

would lie n safe place for Mr. Foo's 'layout.*
It made ii easy to understand wby a young
Chinaman wears wrinkles and appear*.*, like
an old man while yet m his teens.
a BMJLLL POT ok -■■b*.
Mr. Foo removed tbodishes. He wanted to
bring some more of tho menu, but the reporter Indicated that he would prefer a drink
Df some kind, A/tor a long delay Mr. Foo
appeared with a tray bearing a small pot. of
tea and a cup that resembled a toy. The tea
was a revelation. It was arom,atlo and the
flavor delicious, uud If there hud cot Wen a
small family of Croten bugs found iu the teapot, after the tea hod been swallowed, ifc
would have been thoroughly enjoyable. This
ended the dinner.
"Well, Mr. Foo, how muoh do I oweyoUr"
the reporter asked, simply a* a matter of
form.
Tho iI'uuirk brought back Mr. Foo's eliear*
(ulnssSj mill lie csuno near uncovering his
ipiue with lou^itudinsioxtonsionof his smile.
He showed for the first time that, his English
bad not been entirely neglectod. After a fow
marks with a brush, through tho wreath ef
suiiktt came the word* soft and low:
"Sixta-uinoa can,"
"fcrx-ty-nine cental (io to, Mr. Foo. You are

An Caecjual Battle.
The lower animals go not unarmed.
The uword of the kword Hall, the sting of
the wasp, the venom of th* make, tiu
Ink bag of the cuttle Hah, the power of
tbe electric eel, and hundreds of other
devices, equip the lower orders with
weapons offensive and defensive. The
way In which a hedgehog kills a serpent
is described in tho following incident:
The hedgehog cautiously approached
tho sleeping reptile and seised the end of
its tall between his teeth andgave a sharp
bite. Then he quickly rolled himself Into
a compact, spiny ball, and awaited developments.
The snake, thus rudely awakened, wa*
at onco belligerent. It turned upon Its
enemy and fought with ita fangs.
The hedgehog, securely intrenched
within his spines, retained his hold of
the tall and allowed himself to he
dragged back and forth during the struggle. Meantime the serpent's jaws were
becoming lacerated and useless from
constant assault upon its enemy's needle
pointed carapace.
Exhausted and bleeding from It*macv
wounds, the snake finally ceased its el-
forts. This was what the hedgehog had
waited for. He unrolled h'ttuBlf, disemboweled the unlucky snake and proceeded
to cat his breakfast, apparently none the
worse for the encounter which had cost
his antagonist so dearly.
The hedgehog might have said: "I
didn't kill the snake; but ii it was so
foolish as to kill itself on my spinet,
why it must take tho consequences, and
I'll take a breakfast."—Youth's Companion.
Wouldn't Break the Law.
"I had an experience on the Pennsylvania limited express traveling from Chicago last Sunday," tald a prominent
merchant recently, "which struck me as
being very peculiar. I ordered a bottle
of claret with my dinner while we were
going through Pennsylvania, and was
astonished when the waiter refused to
take the order.
" 'We don't servo liquors on Sunday,
sir,' ho said.
"His sanctimonious tone and expression humbled me, and I felt seriously rebuffed. I was still meditating over this
when the train crossed the border into
New Jersey. Suddenly the door opened
and the waiter returned, but what a
change in expression! A large and
healthy smilo illumined his face, and he
carried a tray covered with bottle* of
beer and glasses.
" 'How is this?' 1 asked him as he returned. 'I thought you didn't serve
liquors today?'
"'Oh, we're in Jersey now,' wa* the
reply.

dearth of strong drink."—New York

A Duel with Bum.
A novel kind of duel with a tragic termination has just taken place outside
Paris between two rivals in tlie uffec
tions of tho buxom barmaid of a wine
tavern. The rivals were brothers, antl
they resolved to drink copious libations
of fiery nnd undiluted rum until one or
both should be overpowered. The alco
hollo article sold as "pure Jamaica" in
Parisian taverns ls bad enough when
well watered, but when taken neat and
In largo quantities it Is worse than the

Frenchmen ply themselves. The brothers began their "rum duel" beforo the

The other went out Into the frosty air

A Knowledge of Elementary Studies
Seeded- - I.et Cookery be Learned at
Home—Objection, to Kitchen. In City
Bchoolhotlru>H    Pertinent    PollllA.
The women who propose to introduce in
struction fn the science ind art of coolunp,
into the public schools undoubtedly mean
well   Tbeir offer to pay  the evpenses ot n
teacher ami to provide the articles that are
to be prepared for food is commendable.   It
] Ie understood, however, tlicit thin proposition
I Is only with u view of praising n public ex
! perimenL    if it is successful the design Is to
I have cooking taught, ns rending,  writing,
; German and music now are, nt the cost of
! taxpayers.    It will take its place in the rag
j ular course of studies
That every  woman,  wlmtever her rank.
should understand how to prepare tbe various
: kinds of   food in coin man   use  it certain.
'■ Nothing promotes the bapni-icss of mankind
! in general aa much a. good food.    Poorly
: prepared food ruins the heal!   of many fain
; tiles.    Wasteful cooking pt-ovents the pros
j perlty of a still large number    Economy in
the kitchen, It is .aid. enabled tbe  French
, nation to pay tbe Indemnity demanded by
Germany for a foolish war, and allowed tbe
peasantry to contribute millions toward dig
glng the Panama cuunl    Person, of every
age and condition appreciate a good meat
Cooking deserves to lie recognized as one of
the fine arte.    For Its highest development
science as well a. skill and experience arc
required    It is oneof the most hopeful signs
of the times that several chemists have lately
delivered   courses of   lectures  and  written
works on the science of cookery    Tho latter
are now taking the place of the empirical
cook book
TOO  MANY   STUDIES.
Ihe propriety, however, of introducing
cooking into tbe commoji schools is question
aide. An attempt is mode to Impart instruc
tion in quite too many things now. The
school Life of tho majority of pupils is limited
to 600 days They cannot learn to read,
write and compute simple numbers in this
short time Every now branch interferes
with progress in what are known as tbe
fundamental studies If human beings are
to occupy a place above that of the common
animals it ls certainly necessary that they
learn to read In the language of tbe country,
to express their thoughts on paper and to
compute numbers. A very large proportion
of pupils leave tho schools now only only one
step removed from Illiteracy Gorman,
music, draining and gymnastics have each
bad an influence in preventing them from ,
learning how to use the Dug lish language in
sny other way than in conversation
A knowledge of cookery can be acquirec'
out of school much better than a knowledge
of reading, writiug. arithmetic and geogi'n
phy. If a girl can rend and write well, un
derstands tbe value of weights and mens
uses, and is tolerubly familiar with tlie terms
employed in practical science, she can learn ,
muoh about cookery hy the study of books.
A knowledge of the elementary studies ordi
uarily taught hi common schools is as Important to learning cookery as to learnir
anything else.
SEVEIUI. OBJECTIONS.
There are great objections to fitting up
rooms In school houses to he used for cooking
food. Ovens, stoves, t jnges and a large
number of utensils will, of course, be neces
sary for conductingoperatioiis, Meat, game,
fish, fruits, vegetables, btiiter, lard, pepper,
spies, vinegar and many more articles must
tie brought to the school house every day or '
kept In stock. Tho odor of tbe kitchen will
he likely to extend to every room in the
building. The children who are making
mud pits under thedirection of the lnstructin
iu art will wish they bail some of tbe bacon
and eggs, corned beef uud cabbage, pork and
iiver, beefsteak aud onions or fried cal,. -
and cottage cheese that are being prepared
by the class In cookery in tho room beneuih
them.
If cookery Is introduced In thoschools tben
will properly be a demand for instruction In
uttlng, fitting and making articles of cloth
ing and fordoing laundry work. It is im
portant that girls know how to wash, starch
and Iron clothes. Girlsas well as boys should
learn many things that nre not now taught
In the publlo schools. It docs not follow
however, that the publlo schools should un
dertaketo give instruction in every depart
ment of learning or in every art practiced ; i
the shop, kitchen, laundry and nurscr.
They have already attempted to dot™, inn.

II. i.i.   Ifuttle with a Buck.
Before the country surrounding Hock
Island Ills., ivas us thickly settled ns it
is now, it « is a pretty good liurrtins
ground, and even now an occasional
deer is to I"; Been at a distance. While
a writer was traveling on a Rock Island
train :last Pt-jitpinber. a big buck, entangled in v. barb wire fence, near Turkey Hollow, eight miles from tho town
attracted thc attention a/ the passengers. When Taylor station, a short distance aWay. was readied, a party wn-
madeuptogo after thu quarry which
was lieli'. fast by the fence. Station
Agent Mudge secured a hatchet, his onlv j
available weapon, and, jumping on h j
hand car, sped to the Bpot where litf '
buck \yos held captive. Full of conii
dence Mudge advanced nearer with up
raised hatchet to give the finishinp
stroko at the center nf tho head.
Warily watching Ihe opportune mo
ment, down came l he hatchet with power
fill force, but I'..'a quick, slight move
ment of the deer at tlie same instant the
blow hit the side of the bead, and bo
astonished tho affrighted animul that it
leapt right Into the air—as Muclgc ex-
pressed it—at least twelve feet high, and
earno down before him on all of its limbs,
free. The upward miraculous spring re-
lajxod tho loop and released the leg. Xow
stood near to Itini the maddened animal,
with hair upraised along the back, ready
for a lunge. Fearlessly Mtidge met the
onslaught and, while calling lo his companion fur aid. be impulsively threw his
hatchet, as an Indian would his toinu
hawk, at tho buck's head. It hit th.
horns and, glancing n(T, went Hying ovei
the fence. The buck's charge was Utth
Impeded. Its feet camo down Bldllng
from Mudge's left shoulder, tearing hi-
clotlics and abralsing lhc skin ami brlnx
ing tho first blood of lhc contest.
Luckily nt tills moment had como hi.
companion into tho light, with a fenc.
stake that descended swiftly over tin
buck's hack, so staggering it that he wu
enabled to repeat blow after blow, bring
ing the buck to thu ground prostrate am.
helpless. It was but a labor of lovo I'd:
Mudgo with his penknife to let out hi-
life blood. Tho carcass was put on tin
bond car and triumphantly delivered ui
the station. Hero friends greeted thcin
on tlieir success, having accomplislic.l
what few hunters would havo under
taken with such slight ,,'capousns a cluh
! and hatchet to kill ;, buck nt bay.-

glad to we his callers, and made them foei
that thay ware welcome. The Englishmen
■bowed a great Interest In bim, and came

caused a good deal of Indignation among
chevalier Englishmen.
"Well, gentlemen,* said the general, witl
a twinkle In his eye, "1 am very glad to
tell you how that happened. One of my
officer., a modest, Christian gentleman, went
to church one Sunday Just as he was about

It    is    understood    that   Ihe   entire,
strength of both Nos. 3 ami 4 batteries, i
: B. C. G. A. have signified  their  willingness to visit Vancouver on thc  1st  inst.
i Out of nineteen present at the meeting of
No. 2 eight were for and eleven against,
and had there been  a   full  attendance
I the   majority   of   that    battery   also
j would have been in favor of going,    lt is |
| scarcely   possible   to  do   the militia a
| bettor service than having these period-
I leal reunions, antl "feather bed soldiers"
who object to putting on tlieir uniforms
on account of tlie heat should not he
allowed  to interfere with the arrangement. Should Vancouveritee invite our
citizen-soldiers to visit them on the 1st,
they can depend upon a lull muster acknowledging  the compliment, and the
honors of the day will be done by a body
of men of which Victoria may  well feel
proud.—Colonist..

Dissatisfaction at tlie I illon
Several miners  wlio arrived
.'Iilli'.
ni   the
Comox.   bring
Isabel yestertlay from
rather bad news'of the working of the
mine there. They say it is Impossible
under the present manner of running
the mine for a white man to make a Iiv- |
ing. Tbev informed us that the scam of
coal is onlv two feet thick, and Ihnl to
get at it thev have to lake down two feet
of dirt, which has to be all all loaded and
run out of the slope. The present price
paid is 90c. a ton with no yardage for
driving tunnels. The mine is worked on
the long wall system, antl coal i- very
difficult to obtain.
Formerly men were paid at the rale of
$!) a yard, and they could make fair
wages,'hut now "the management" has
ordered that the coal be worked at the
rate of 90c. a ton, anil that if white men
cannot do it at the price Chinamen will.
They also stated that four Italians,
^'ood miners, worked four days, and after
paying for their powder and oil only succeeded in clearing25c.

vesterday with a couple of Indians to
locate a route for thc line, The contractor for the work of setting up pules and

the line to leave the road. It is very uncertain when the line will bo finished as
the route will probably go through some

Wo understand that E. Quennell has
just bought from .1. Bennett, of Newcastle
Island, twenty magnificent wethers,
which averaged one hundred and thirty
pounds weight. This is the best all-
round average of sheep—fed out on the
range—of which we have as yet heard
as coming into this market. The sheep
were bought as "stores" in the early part
of laBt summer and put on Newcastle
Island, where they havo ''earned" their
own living ever since. This fact speaks
volumes tor the fattening properties of
our native grasses antl brush, when we
consider that the same sheep when first
placed on tbe island scaled about 115  lbs,

James Maitland and Sarah Jano Helton leave for other lands. Yesterday
James Maitland, late ot* the Brlttanfa
Restaurant and Miss S. ,1. liolton left the
city in a suspicious manner and tbeir
exact destination is as yet unknown.
It is rumored that Maitland left fnr tbe
benefit of his health ns several of the
relatives of the girl bail determined to
make the city too hot to hold liim. He
is also suspected of having taken  several
hundred dollars in bard cash to help him
along the road. The voting lady went
away quite cheerfully singing "Tommy
make room for your uncle," ostensibly
as a parting shot'at her late male friends.
The interesting part of the elopement
is that the couple occupy the relations
towards each other of uncle and niece.

By the steamer Sardonyx which arrived down from the north on Wednesday the news was broughl that the
spring Bockeye run in the Nans and
Skeena has commenced although it is
very light. The lish are, however, of
innre than usual size and quality. All
the canneries are busy, not the least work
being done by the Canada Packing Co.,
whose new cannery on the Nans is now
booming. On her way down the Sardonyx passetl the Boscowitss ami the

We wish to call the attention of t hose
whom it may concern, to tbe fact that an
escape of gas is, and has been occurring
for some days, just past J. 15. Ward's
fruit and candy store. Thc smell is very
perceptible—we had almost written
offensive—to passers-by, but we remember to have heard a lady say that
she preferred this particular smell to that
of the best distilled by Eugene Rimmel.

t'lrc Practice.
Tho firemen last night took out the old
hand engine, "Able and Willing," for a
practice. They also hail a hose practice.
Our local volunteer fire brigade seems to
be very enthusiastic, and we hope to see
the "boys" get away with some of the
Iiohc contests during the summer.

wlio passetl through lately weie from
all parts of Ontario, and were destined
tor various points iu the North West,
extending from Winnipeg to Vancouver.
The crops of Manitoba and the Nortli

farmers' sons of Ontario cannot (ail
to secure a. large number of desirable
