ment of a two-storey frame Ijuiilding on
the South-West corner of Front and
Madison Streets. The huilding was the
property of Mrs. Margaret J. Portins.
The first story was leased by the Seattle
Shoe Company, the upper floor being occupied by offices. The Volunteer Fire
Brigade arrived promptly on the scene,
but could make no headway against the
terrible flames. Ten minutes after the
tire started it bad assumed fearful proportions, making it impossible to approach the building. In the next building to the one in which the flames
started was the wholesale liquor store of
Diets! A Meyer. As soon as the fire
reached it the barrels of liquor exploded
with a succession ol loud reports and

of tho building far and wide. The Denny
block in which was a wholesale confectionery store, Gilmore & Co.'s real eBtate
office, and several other establishments
including a number of professional offices,
and some lodging apartments, was soon
licked up completely. This cleaved one
entire square.
An effort was made to flood the Coleman huilding, hut without avail, the
flames rapidly

and firing the Palace Saloon and
the Opera House saloou, and in less than
thirty minutes another square was burned to ashes. Taking in Addison Smith's
grocery, Merchant's wholesale confectionery and fruit store; John Spencer's
plubing and steam fitting establishment;
K. D. Graham's tailor shop; Edgar Bryan's pawn shop; the Palace Restaurant;
Simptons Bros.' shoe store; (iiering &
O'Donnell's jewelry Btore; Sinister'* barber shop; Levy's clothing store and
Maium'B clothing store. While this
square was burning, the Opera House
block en the cast side of Front street,
between Madison and Marion, nnd extending up Marion half way up Second
street, caught fire in the upper stories.
This building, a flue three-story brick
structure, owned bv (leorge F. Frye, and
valued ut $125,000, soon yielded to the
flames.
The scene of utter desolation, isolated,
naked walls and charred debris covers
an area of fully one hundred nnd twenty
acres. The contents of vaults and safes
of all the banks have not been injured.
This means a reduction of about
$1,500,000, iti* estimated from the total
loss in the burnt district, however, there
is not a wall which will not have te be
battered dow n.   The fire made

THE   PRACTICE   OE    CARRYING
REVOLVERS.
Each niglit as we go to press telegraphic accounts reach us of crimes committed in which the revolver plays an
important part.  Now, it is afoul murder
that has been perpetrated, again, it is a
case of suicide, the commission of each
crime    being    rendered   comparatively
easy, owing to the fact that the criminal
either habitually carried, or was in the
possession of a revolver.   We quite admit that there are places and occasions
to which revolvers are suitable or even
necessary.   In Texas and in some other
of the Southern and Western portions of
the United States, they (revolvers) may
be regarded quite ns ordinary articles of
apparel.   But police reports keep perpetually reminding us that even in London
the practice of carrying revolvers is by
no means so uncommon as many persons
suppose.   Of course if  a nervous man
cIioobcb to keep a revolver under his pillow, no one except his wife has the right
to object.   For our own part we very
much doubt whether sleep with a revolver is better than sleep without.   Judging from the numerous accounts of accidents which nre daily reaching us, we
are inclined to the opinion that the revolver, atleaBt in unpracticed hands, does
far more execution upon either it's possessor or other unoffending persons, than
upon those against whom it is supposed
to be a safe-guard.   We have ourselves
had some little experience of "roughing
it" in more than one country where law
and order were perhaps not quite of an
ideal nature, and yet we have no hesitation in stating our belief that the man
who governs himself as he should do—
the man who neither drinks, quarrels, or
uses abusive  language, has but  Bmall
need to carry concealed weapons, either
in the States or any other country.   We
quite admit that the above remark does
not always apply, but our readers will
bear ub out when we say that nine-tenths
of the tragedies in which the revolver
figures, do not occur owing to the necessity  of   the  master  of  the house defending    life    and    property    ngainBt
the  burglar, or yet  by the  harmless
citizen    endeavoring    to    protect    his
purse against the foot pad.   Our  content,/"* ■'• "■«. "-» i i.icoi administrator of justice ought not 'to acquiesce in
tbe (at least on this coast) almost supposed universality of a dangerous and
barbarous practice. It is really a remarkable fact, not that there are so many fatal
"accidents" from the promiscuous use of
fire arms,  but  that  there  are so few.
"When we consider," says a well-known
London Magistrate,  "that one revolver
may kill half-a-dozen people in the same
number of seconds, that  any body can
buy one for a small sum without a certificate of competence, that the progress of
mechanical invention tends to quick and
easy firing, that most men are not trained
to shoot, and that loaded revolvers are
frequently in the possession of drunkards,
we might expect a daily tale of slaughter
which would reach in a few weeks the
proportion of a battle field."   Of course
we are aware that the law in this country
Bets its legal face against the carrying of
such weapons, but we fear that in this,
as in other things which we could mention, the law is practically inoperative,
not in the least owing to any fault of
those public servants two horn the carrying out of the law ia entrusted, but to the
want of a decided expression of public
feeling against such a pernicious usage.
If upon the conviction of an offender in
this particular of carrying concealed firearms, instead of the imposition of a fine,
a severe term of imprisonment were inflicted, there might he a reasonable hope
of  some mitigation of this pistol nuisance.    Let it be made a penal offence,
why not?   Here is a chance for an ambitious politician,  wishing to distinguish
himself.   He would receive tho support
of nil sensible persons, for nobody wishes
to be shot without warning by a drunken
blackguard, or a clumsy experimentalist.
"The sale of revolvers requireB regulation
at least ns much as the Bale of poisons"
There  has  been   no  difficulty   in  the
former case, and there would be none in
the latter if "Governments could occas-
Bionally ceaBe from the manufacture of political capital and condescend to provide
for the protection of society."
THE SEATTLE AND JOHNSTOWN
SUFFERERS.
The great Seattle fire is to-day the talk
of the streets. We hear people asking
anxiously after friends and eagerly trying
to ascertain particulars as to this or that
property. Fearful distress must of necessity result from such sudden and wholesale destruction, meaning in many cases
we fear, utter destitution if not starvation.
Instead of waiting for an appeal to be
made, would it not be well to organize a
committee and begin at once the work of
raising money with which to aid our suffering neighbors. Calamities follow one
another in such quick succession that we
hardly have time to recover from the
shock caused by the report of a catastrophe on the Atlantic sea-board, before we
are rendered almost speechless by the
news that the neighboring town of
Seattle is almost destroyed by fire. Allowing for possible exaggeration, still the
Seattle fire must reckon as one of the
greatest calamities which the present
generation has witnessed. Fortunately
the loss entailed is only in property, not
in valuable lives; at least so we infer from
details at present to band.
For days past our columns havo been
inundated with harrowing accounts of
the fearful havoc wrought by the floods in
Pennsylvania. A catastrophe of such extent that it will also rank in history as
one of the greatest which has ever befallen the white man's race. We are
aware that periodical famines occur in
China and we bad almost said India (but
we hope that with the present system of
railways that danger is past) in which
hundreds ef thousands of our fellow
creatures die from actual starvation; but
somehow though our feelings may be
harrowed by the fearful accounts of the
Hindoo and Mongolian dying from share
inanition, yet such accounts do not, nor
ever caa appeal to us in quite the same
way (no matter how cosmopolitan we
may be) as do the dreadful records of the
sufferings of thc survivors of tha great
Johnstown floods or what we fear, must
be the almost destitute condition of
numbers of Seattle's inhabitants.
Thc people of the United States
are our blood relations, they
aro our neighbors, they are generous—who as much so—when others are
aro in dire necessity. When our own
great calamity befell us in Nanaimo, not
three years ago, who so ready as our
American friends to send us aid in our
hour of need. It would be tbe act of cur*
not to respond to the cry for help published in our telegrams of yesterday.
Only half the amount required, we are
told, has been received as yet by the Relief Committee, and even if by waiting
we should hear that the other half has
been forthcoming, yet we shall bave lost
the golden opportunity of doing that
which which we feel well assured one
and all wish to see done—a generous sum
of money subscribed by the people of
Nanaimo, Wellington and the adjoining
districts. "He giveB twice who gives
quickly"; this is the motto we would
fain impress upon those who are best
fitted to take the lead in this matter of
aid to thoBe ruined by flood and fire, both
East and West. For the rest we can
answer for it that the appeal, if made,
will be responded to in no half-hearted
manner, but that our fellow-townflmen
will once more exhibit the generoBity
which has invariably di*tinguished them
when the causes have been as good* and
the wants as clearly defined and undoubted as these of the inhabitants of the two towns which were
once Johnstown and Seattle.
MISCELLANEOUS   NOTES.
Edmund Yates the famous journalist
and novelist, says: It is really alarming
to think how much social influence
Doctors hnve, and how wide-reaching
that influence is. They can make or mar
the fortunes of a watering place; they can
bring into fashion or can utterly excommunicate anv article thnt. thpy plpo.o ol
food and drink. Just now the Doctors
have been pleased to speak with faint
approval of the good qualities of Scotch
whiskey, and Scotch whiskey is at a
premium. They have pronounced decidedly in favor of pure cold water, and
the chances are that out of fifteen people
at dinner in nn ordinary country house,
three will take nothing but cold water.
We are constantly being asked by persons on tho street, why the Free Prett
should head their yesterday's telegraphic
account of the Seattle fire
"A  SECOND   GOMORRAH,"
we mildly suggest they ehould ask the
Editor of that paper, as we fear our own
preconceived ideas aa to Gomorrah and
the reason of its ending, must be all
wrong somehow. For ourselves, we own
that on picking up our evening contemporary and seeing the heading referred
to, we had expected to find some startling
revelations, laid bare by means of the
fire which has swept the ill-fated town.
We were doomed to disappointment.
Again, Mr. Free Prett Editor, why "Gomorrah?" Surely you are not complimentary to the people of Seattle in their
misery and, moreover, you will lead the
good folk of Nanaimo and Wellington to
think that your religious education has
been somewhat neglected.
We are unable to vouch for the authenticity of the following list of much
married persons, nor indeed have we any
other authority to offer than that of a
popular English journalurt and raconteur:
St. Jerome mentions a widow that
married her twenty-third husband, who
in his turn bad been married to twenty
wives! Elizabeth Masi, who died at
Florence, in 1768, had been married to
seven husbands, all of whom she outlived. She espoused the last at the
mature age of seventy. When on her
death-bed, she recalled the good and bad
points in each of her husbands, and having impartially weighed them in the
balance, she singled out her fifth spouse
as her favorite, and desired that her remains might be interred near his. The
death of a soldier is recorded in 1784 who
had five wives, and his widow aged
ninety, wept over the grave of her fourth
husband I The writer who mentioned
these facts naively added, "The said
soldier was much attached to tbe marriage state." There is an account of a
gentleman who lived to be one hundred
and fifteen years old. Wben he died he
left twenty-three children alive and well,
some of the children being from three to
four-score years old I A gentleman died
at Bordeaux in 1772, who had been married sixteen times.
In another column will be found
a deeply interesting letter signed
"Sandy Davidson," written by one of
our most deservedly respected and
esteemed citizens. Let Sandy Davidson
not misunderstand us on this question of
liquor licensing. No one deplores more
deeply than do we ourselveB this hideous
vice of drinking, which is eating into the
very vitals of the people of this community. No one understands better than
do we ourselveB (not even Sandy Davidson) the fearful misery, the want, tbe
squalor, the degradation, the utter want
of self-respect which is the inevitable outcome of this ten times "accursed thirst
for drink." Notwithstanding all this,
we still stand to our guns. Our contention is that fint-claii, well conducted
ftoft*"j(bed and board of course, being a
tine quo non) are an absolute necessity,
whilst the world is constituted as it is at
present. Fagged and weary traveller*
will insist on having something stronger
to drink than milk and water, with
which to "pull themselves together,
The last sentence in the letter lying before ua is one very well worthy of the
most attentive consideration by every
one having a jot of influence or interest
in the town. We juBt wish to add that
it gives us real pain to stand opposed to
one for whom we feel so sincere a respect
as Sandy Davidson, and yet we think
that even our correspondent himself
would not bave us go against our convictions in this matter.
Canadian Facift Mii.at.0D  Co.
Since writing the article on the Seattle
and Johnstown disasters, it occurred to
ub that the sooner this matter of forwarding aid to those who have so nobly
responded to our own cry more than
once, is taken in hand tbe better. We
mentioned the matter in our composing
room and office with the immediate result of a promised subscription of $65.00.
We wish to add that the opinion of the
town seems to be, so far as we are able to
guage it, that such aid as we are able to
afford, should be sent to those whom we
seem to know the best—our Seattle
neighbors—and leave the Pennsylvania
sufferers to the generous assistance of the
great cities of the East and of Europe.
Already persons are dropping into the
Courier office wishing to subscribe; W.
Trounce, city constable, as we write, has
banded ua two dollars and a half. We
shall be glad to receive any sums left
with us on account of the sufferers. A
systematic canvas of the town and neighborhood will be made at once, and an
account opened with the Bank of British
Columbia.

TREES OF CALIFORNIA.
RAILWAY   RELIEF   ASSOCIATIONS.
THE  WONDERS OF NATURE IN  THE ,
GREAT YOSEMITE  PARK.
Glunra of tho Forest lUcosuiiut; Thirty Feet
In Dlnruelot—A Coach and Four Driven
Into u Hollow Log-—Each State In the
Union  Represented by a Tree.
The story of tho "Fallen Pine" doubtless
comes from a suggestion made by one ot the
"big trees" in the Yosemite region of California. Thoso "big troes" are among the
most sublime of tho natural wonders of the
world. One who bos never seen tbem can
havo no conception of their Immensity. The
largest of them nro over 30 feet in diameter
10 feet from tho ground, and the tallest are
over SOO feet high. Tho principal ones in the
Yosemite park have distinctive titles or
names. Each stato of the Union has its tree
specially designated; and many of the historic characters of tbe nation aro honored
with the tree. The namo in each Instance Is
handsomely painted on a broad board and
nailed fast to the tree.
The tree I havo referred to specially above
is known now as "The Fallen Monarch." It
was nt ouo timo called, in derision, "The Andrew Johnson" tree, after the rupture between tho Iuto presidont and hi* party. But
the tit lo "Fallon Monarch" ia ao appropriate
that by an universal sense the namo lives,
and will livo as long as the languago lives,
or until tho treo bos passed away Into dust or
osUos.
CO.NTKMrORA.niKS Olr  NOAH.
This treo was one of tho grandest In the
grove. As it now lies prostrato upon tho
earth, its diameter averages over twenty
feot for more than a hundred feot of its
length. The top and part of the butt end
bave boon destroyed by firo. How long tho
tree has lain there is unknown; it may have
been thero for more than a thousand yeara
Tho wood of tho "big trees" I* a species of
cedar, and it is well nigh imperishable in ut
niospherlo influences. Fire, however, has
been tho great destroying element In those
wonderful relics of tho past.
I say relics of tho past, for these big trees
appear to belong to a very remote age. The
commonly accepted ovidenoos show that they
aro, or at least many of them aro, over 4,000
years old. Indeed they are supposed to be
contemporaries of Noah, having survived the
deluge, it being believed also that the ark itself waa built of the same specie* of wood.
You climb to tho crest of the "Fallen Monarch" by tho aid of a ladder of tome ten
rungs. You can havo no just conception of
tho Immensity of tho tree until you walk
along its mighty back for over a hundred
feet.
Near by aro somo more wonders. 1 give
your readers somo idea of some of them.
"The General Grant" treo is not for off, a
hugo and grim specimen, looking as stern as
tho great warrior ever appeared. There Is
ono known as "The Grtaly Giant," a monster 27 feet In diameter, 0 feet from the
ground. At the height of just 100 feet the
first limb comes out; that limb Is ,0 feet in
diameter. This tree gives you a deep sense of
awe as you gazo on its sublime yet grizzly
aspect.
Within closo walking distance Is "The Tele-
scope Treo." This is about 100 feet high, th*
top of it above that height having been destroyed by Ore. This treo 1* a hollow tube.
From tho baso you look up through this tube
Into tho deep skies above. You can ride on
horseback into the opening below.
THROUGH A  KNOT HOLE.
Not far away is another hollow monster
prostrate on the earth. You can ride In at
tho lower entrance, and go 100 feet, and out
at a knot hole.
The most conspicuous and most colobrated
of the troes is ono thut stands directly astride
of tho broad avenue mode for driving through
tho park. Tho avonuc, a highway, makes
directly toward this treo, and an opening for
tho road bod is cut directly through the heart
of tho vory treo itself. You drive right In
under the archway of solid wood, and the
driver stops, tho great stago and four horses
all covered by the sheltering treo; and there
is, furthermore, ten feet of solid wall on
either side of tho wheels of the coach. The
tree is about thirty foot in diameter at the
height of the stage top.
On the occasion of my visit there we bad
the coach stopped, and wero allowed several
minutes' timo to comprehend this sublime
work of naturo, turned to such an abiding
interest to the tourist. In our party were
several Australian and English gentlemen,
and they said that in all thou; travel* around
tho world thero was nothing so grand as
thoso wonders of tho Yosemite.
These California parks are owned by the
general government, but are held in trust by
the state of California, which has expended
immense sums of money in making roads and
other improvements in those wild, picturesque regions.
The state also keeps a strong guard of policemen In all tbe parks, and no one is allowed
to cut even a cane or twig, or pluck a bunch
of leave* from ono of tho trees. The largest
ot the park* contains about 2,(100 acre*; lt la
one of the high plateau* that run out west-
wordlyfrom the summit of the Sierra No-
* vada mountains. The soli is exceedingly
rich, though the altitude is so high that there
ts but little vegetatiou except the big tree*
and cedar growth. I saw ono treo there 160
feet high and 8 feet in diameter. It stands
In .the center of a room In one of the Yosemite hotels, and the room ia known as "the
big tree room. "—Cor. Atlanta American.
A Liberal Patron of tho Cable*.
The Chinese minister is said to be the most
liberal patron of tho cable companies In
Washington and spends even more money
for telegraphing than tho government of the
United States. Almost every act of bis It
governed by Instructions asked and received
from bis government, and although he use.
a cipher by which he can put the meaning
of ten words into two, bis telegraph** bill
averago $1,000 a week and often exceed that
sum daily for a weok at a time. Ho tent
(9,000 worth of dispatches to China concerning the riot* at Milwaukee and received replies that must have co*t at least aa muoh
more. In fact enough money w«* spent Is
communicating the Information regarding
the Milwaukee troubles to Indemnify tht
Chinamen of that city for all the damage!
suffered by them. Cable messages to China
are sent first to Havre, then to Aden, thence
across tho Arabian sea through Hindoostan
and Slam to Feldn, and they cost about W
a word.—Detroit Free Press.
Pussy Waltilng.
A friend in Provldenco tells us of a funny
pug there. Hearing the order, "Now, Prince,
walk," he come* out very slowly, and walla
at a slow and dignified gait, till bo hear* the
order, "Now, Prince, waltz I" when be seizes
the end of hi* tail with his mouth and begins
to gyrate at a surprisingly swift rate. He
whirls faster and faster, till It Is difficult to
see head or tall or to tell what Is whirling so.
At the command, "Reverse I" he suddenly reverse* the order of hi* gyrations, and on being told, "Now, Prince, I don't think you
ought to have a partner," he instantly let*
go hla hold of his tail and goes on with hi*
waltz "alone."—Hartford Times.

What Is Claimed for Them.
Seeing as we do the many lines in the country grouped Into largo systems, whose owner*
ship will no doubt remain stable In yean to
come, permanence of employment and stability of position is easy to be guaranteed, and
the corporations can now better secure their
own rights and strengthen themselves against
the encroachments of tho public by drawing
their employes more closely to them, showing
that paternal care and solicitude* for tbem
which tend to establish good feeling and community of interest.
Relief associations under the guidance of
the companies will do this. They are flourishing on the Baltimore and Ohio and the
Pennsylvania railroads. The organizations
ou these roads may be taken as the type of
what other companies should do. On tbe
former, the scheme originated with the elder
Garrett nearly ten years ago. At its organisation all employes could join without
regard to age. After a short period those
over •."> years and those who could not pass
a medical examinatiou wero not allowed to
join. All persons employed regularly by tbe
company are required to pass a medical examination, must be under 45 years of age,
and must join tbo relief association. Thus
it will bo seen that nearly all their employes
ore mombers. Tho eoinpulsory feature looks
to on outsider liko a hardship, but the obligation is ou him ouly who seeks employment.
The employes ure divided into two classes—
hazardous and non-hazardous; and these two
classes are divided into fivo others, who pay
Into a fund certain fixed sums each month,
according to tho ninonnt of wages regularly
received. Benefits are paid in weekly indemnities in cases of sickness and disablements
and a gross sum to the beneficiary whon death
occurs. Thoy vary according to the amount
contributed. Free medical and surgical attendance is given; hospitals are established *
physicians aro appointed at convenient points
on the lino. The company has contributed
$100,000, tho interest on which at 0 per cent,
goes into tho fund yearly It also puts $26,-
000 per year into a superannuation fund. A
building loan association has also been
formed, which bus become quite popular.
There nro many other liberal features, of
which limited spaco will not permit an enumeration.
The Pennsylvania Railroad company bus
also adopted a system of relief similar to that
of tho Baltimore and Ohio, but not so extensive. It is entirely voluntary, and numbers
over 20,000. It rapidly increases in popularity us its benefits becomo moreappreolated.
In both companies the employes are rapidly leaving tho local benevolent associations;
they And they can insure themselves with the
aid of a solvent and powerful company for
much less money than In the thousand and
one local lodges whoso solvency depends ou
the honesty of a secretary or a treasurer.
Other systems of relief, but to a minor extent, bave been adopted by railway companies—notably free hospital service for the
sick and disabled upon the Santa Fe and Missouri Paclfio, all of which materially lessen
the number of claims for damages and subsequent costly trials and judgments in the
courts.—L. O. Goddard in Tne Century.

How to Get to Sleep.
Tbo suggestion recently made in this column in regard to methods of inducing or promoting sleepiness has been put to a practical
test by one constant reader of The Tribune
with most gratifying result*. The suggestion was that sleep could be wooed successfully by a method of counting in this fashion: 1, 2: 1, 2, 8; 1, 2, 3, 4; 1, 9, 3, 4, 5, etc.,
up to 25. The experimenter relates hla experience lu the following language: "Hy
plan ia not to count rapidly, but to call off
mentally ono figure with overy expiration of
breath. A person In good health counts at
that rate about twenty a minute. Before
reaching 25 in this scale, he must count for
about sixteen minutes, as the series mount*
up to 825 counted straight ahead. But 1
have found oue decided advantage over
counting In regular order. That can bo done
mechanically, without any mental activity
whatever.
The other mothod U not burdensome to the
mind, but furnishes just enough material to
keep tho thoughts oil' other subjects. I often
find myself forgetting the number at which 1
ought to stop and return to 1, whereupon I at
once begin again where 1 left off and proceed
in order. I cannot suy that this scheme will
produce sleep when there is no inclination or
impulse hi thut direction, but when thero is
even a rudimoutury impulse 1 know lt will
encourage and increase it. 1 havo tried lt a
good many time* since I first read it in The
Tribune and it ha* only failed me twice.
Often on waking 1 will remember that I waa
aot able to count beyoud 7 or 8 before losing
myself In slumber. I have never yet counted
up as far as 20. I think I7 or 18 has been my
limit I believo that the author of thi* suggestion has conferred a boon on peoplo who
aro troubled with insomnia, although lt cannot be expected to work in every ca*e.—New
York Tribune
Applying *, Principle*
Most of us understand a principle moat
thoroughly when its upul i c at ion is to be found
In our own line of thought or work.
The members of a central high school, after
a long debate, decided that the marking system waa injurious and unfair, and petitioned
the principal to abolish lt
"Wo know," said the spokesman, "whether
we have prepared our lessons or not; tb*
record of an accidental miss may be misleading."
Thero was a great baseball match Impend.
Ing, In which the whole school wa* intensely
interested.
"Let us try lt on the nail ground first,''
said the principal "In the coming match
keep no score You will know whether you
play well or ill, and as for errors, they ar*
often purely accidental,   Why record theml"
Ths boys withdrew without another word.

[London News.]
The round of organ and pianoforte recitals which has continued without cessation
during the post month in the music-room
was broken the otherday by th* court band of
the king of Slam, who, by that monarch1*
special permissiou, have visited the western
world to fulfill an engaeom.nt at th* Inventions exhibition. This was their flrst appearance. On tb* opening of the doors
there was a tremendous rush of people,
speedily filling the room to overflowing.
The Siamese muticlans, like most of their
fellow-countrymen abroad, wear ordinary
European costume. For this special occasion their uniform was * blue cap
with patent leath.r peak, * blue forag*
jacket witb bras* buttons, * sash of gold,
baggy bre*che* of frw-and.uy cut, whit*
.tooklngs, and .hoes. Tb* bos* Is a courtly
token, but is nsverth.i.sa for concert purposes a superfluous articl., seeing that th*
wearers squat upon the floor during their
performances, with their lag. tucked comfortably and completely und.r them.
Th* instruitwnta accorrilngly 11* low, being, In point of f aot. wliat, without Off.UM,
might be term.J "floorer..." Th* audience
gated stolidly at their inatrumsnt. upon
tha platform for a quarter of an hour before
the business began. Frtqutnter* ot th* exhibition would neogala* tbem** counterpart* of th* artlstic*lly-finlsh*d •xhlblta in
the Slam section outside, und*r It* awning
of white and red stripes, witb th* whit* elephant stamped around th* border. Attach
•nd stood a tun-bellied drum, richly inlaid
with rnother-of-peal, but the*. w*re for
ornament rather than use. It waa not until
the concert began that a clear Idea could ba
formed of the several object, handled by th.
seventeen performer, tram th* court of
Slam. Then what had app**r*l at a distance to b* straight white ruler* tum*d out
to be Blame** flutes. Tu* long wooden
affairs, rudaly fashioned like a guitar,
standing on short lags, and studded along
the backbone with a uosjo bridges, bacsme *
three-stringed instrument. tw*ng*d with *
bit of wood held tn th* musician's right
hand. The boat-shapsd thing proved toNi
yielder of melodious Bounds when *ho trans-
verso strip, of wood war* struck by the
hammers of the perform--. Even the vessels that war* not unlike spittoons musically
responded to a knock. Although th* mother-
of-pearl drum, were not used, liberal .ubiti-
tutes were provided. There were two or
three varieties of modest and imperfect
.tringed instruments, and th* three pipe,
are blown at the end, though ia other respects they are of the flute family.
Tha stock music of th* court baud Is,
however, produced on th* musical guus.1
principle, tb* mediums being either hard
wood or metal Th* principal Instrument*
are exquisitely ornamented and inlaid.
Th* Siamese amba*»ador and lady arrived
In time to he»r the opening piece, described upon th* programme*. Th*Malay*
ot Lobhabury." We bar* no Intimate
knowledge of Lobhabury, but th* music
would suggest that th* good people who tak*
their nam* therefrom were er ar* • not unpleasant combination ot amiability and
caprice, energy »nd c*lmn**a. A f*w minutes will elapse before the unaccustomed
listener get* fairly Into th. swing of th*
Siamese style, bnl very soo*Itt*apparent
that the performer* moat be ranked mountains higher than th* Chin*** sound-torturers of last year. Spits of faint squeak,
and wheels* at odd momenta, (pit* o,
walls end whines, twiddle, end twirls, and
combination* that would pus*** a select
committee on the muslo*! pitch, the
Siamese music la on th* whole phasing a.

It ls always quaint, and cleverly rendered,
The intelligent, imperturbable little people

"Wall paper grows continually lighter in

makes * fine art of wall hangings. "The
season is, of course, now at an end Everybody bos finished all renovatio.H and decorations for the summer. Most persons have
their paper-hanging done either in the
spring or autumn. A few individuals of
wealth and taste have their walls rehuug
both at the beginning of the warm and cold
weather, so that they will lx> appropriate
for both seasons. IV pie now leave the
matter of papering entirely to the discration of tho decorator. Tbey used t,
select tb* paper for each room. They
have learnel, however, that the min who
makes sucb things a study is butter able
to give them satisfaction if left to his own
judgment Tbe now fall papers will, un*
doubtedly, be even lighter in hue than those
for spring. I suppose we'll keep right on
getting lighter tones till wo roach again the

But they've been printed so much in cheap

being "Imitation of figured cloths. This

ls Impossible to paper a room and have the

"Dot0* stork and sunflower still have a

"Not a single stork is to ba found in any

Tliii.i. 'i.t;-r u to;-.; day's plowing, Iheru
are thocoWui belinuglit from tbe pasture.
Of »'<imim-, Tom bji..,; tbo youngest, has that
Ui d<>. loo. And after t-upper is over he must
mil!;, all ef which is well enough if ho was
only allowed a shorter day than tbo others,
and very frequently while tbo others stop
during tho ilay for rest Tom must go for a
;ugof water, aa "boys don't get tired." I
believe In their working as they are able, but
bave known so many boys Injured from overwork that I caiinot refrain from saying a
fow words In tho hopo that tbey may do a
little good. Our dear, warm hearted, willing
boys, whose work we can only appreciate
when thoy are Ul or absent; then we see how
much help they have been,
"TIIK PLOWS WEBB ALL BROKE."
1 was well acquainted with one boy, who
helped break up all the ground for a large
crop. He waa only 14 and small of his age,
and ho worked rightnlong with his father, a
very strong man, until the crops were in, and
the day they finished planting corn, at sup
[«■!• time, I said to htm, when he came in.
"Why, George, what is the matter," For
as long as I live I can never forget tho tired,
dejected, drooping little figure as ho stood in
tbo door. "Oh, nothing, only tired," with a
pa 1 bet ie little smile. In a day or two he was
taken down with fever, and for weeks lay at
death's door simply from overwork. The
first week of his illness ha raved continually
about bis work, and it waa enough to break
one's heart to hear bim urging bis team to
their work, or his plow would break, or it
was "so hard to throw the dirt uphill." Ho
kept this up for a week, never n minute'*.
rest night or day, and overy day bis voice
grew weaker, until one day he opened his
eyes, and looking around the room said, "the
plows are all broke," and never mentioned
them again. But for weeks he was not out
of danger.
Now where was anything gained in thut
transaction. 'A long illness to be borne, n
large doctor's bill to pay; besides the care and
anxiety such an. illness caused his parents.
As he was slowly recovering, bis physician
said: "This illness was caused more from
overwork than anything else; now, see that
it Li nover done again."
Another case of boy's overwork, which 1
know to be true, was where a man set a boy
of 11 years of ago to plowing, and the only
way ho could turn the plough was to put his
bead under tho cross pieces, between the
b indies, letting it rest on the back of his
neck, until he injured his splno and was taken
sick and lived only a few days. In the in
tense heat of harvest is another terrible time
for tho boys; hard, indeed, far strong men.
MAKES A HOTDEU'S HEART ACHE.
Last siinuner Our own boy, a stout youu-.;
fellow of 16, woo had worked from early
spring with scarcely a day's intermission, or
without a word of complaint, side by side
with another man much older than himself,
then through four or five weeks of harvest
until a day or two before it was over, came
into my room (I was ill at the time) looking
so sad and worn that it frightened me, and 1
said to hunt "What is the matter, dear, don't
you feel wellf" "Oh, ma," he said, "I am
Just nearly dead, my head aches so, just look
nt my hands," holeling up hts hands, perfectly
covered inside with callouses and blisters,
whilo his lips quivered and tears stood in his
dark eyes, something that I had not seen for
years, for be is usually too proud to complain
" Yesterday my noso bled until I could hardly
go. 1 do wish father would let me off this
afternoon; won't you ask bim to?" How it
went to my mother heart to have to tell him
that father said "no, most try and get
through while the fair weather lasts," only a
mother can know, and there was a good deal
of bitterness in my thoughts that afternoon
as I thought of ray boy and his sorrowful
face.
His father did not mean to be bard, for if
ho bad been sunstruck or stricken down with
illness ho would then have counted his grain
of vory littlo worth beside the life of his Ix.y,
but he only thought then of tlie work on bond
and that the resting could bo done some other
time. But that la one reason why so man v
boys leave their homes so soon and so thor
ough despise farming, when a little good
judgment, tempered with mercy for them
would do more good than all the stern com
mauds that were ever uttered.
"Oh, if we could only live tlie past five
years over again," said a friend whose only
child, a promising boy of 18, had died of consumption, "for I know be worked too hard.
Ho was always so willing and we never
stopped to think tbat the work might be too
much for him. But now we can see whero
wo did wrong." What a pity all panmts
cannot see, beforo they meet with some such
trouble, and be really parents at heait in
stead of thoughtless taskinastei's whoso present prosperity is gained in a great measure al
a fearful expense-—the broken down consti
tutions of their boys.—Ouo Who Loves Tbem

itself,  not only in Hindpstan,  but all oyei

wc   much  question   whethei   a better is im- :
ported   into the  country,   and   we   shall be ;
glad  to  hear  of  its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home.    The other brands,   wc
are  happy to say, are now relegated   to   the
native   bazaars, and judging from their salet
we   fancy   their   sojurn   there   will be but
evanescent.    We   could   multiply   instances

have witnessed its controlling power. We

Coroner'. Inquest.
An Inquest was held yesterday afternoon in tlie old Court House before J. 1'.
1'lanta, Coroner, upon the body of tbe
late Edward Madden.
The following Jury was impannelled :—
James Wilcox, Foreman, J. Lewis, Jas.
Cohen, J. H. Hilbert, W. Burke and J.
M. Rudd.
The Jury proceeded to J. Hilbert's
Undertaking Establishment to view the
bodv, after which they were Bworn in.
W. H. Phillpot, sworn. Baid he knew
tho deceased und saw him last on Wednesday night about eleven o'clock in bis
restaurant. When deceased left witness
thought he went in the direction of Victoria Crescent.
Dr. Praeger, sworn, said I have made
an external examination of the body.
There is a scalp wound ut the back of the
head and there are somo scratches about
the eyes. I um of an opinion
that death resulted from con-
concussiou of the brain or from a fracture of the base of the skull', the effect
a fall over the cliff. From the position
of the deceased's hands I should say he
had clutched at something at the time of
his fall. There are no other marks of
violence on the body.
W. S. Cameron testified that he knew
tlie deceased to be Edwttfd Madden,
J. McLeod; sworn, said that he had
his attention called to the body of deceased lying on the beach, by somo Siwashes. If tho deceased had fallen oyer
tlie bluff about midnight he would have
fullen into about six feet of water.
Louis Page testified to seeing the body
soon after it was discovered.
P. Burke also testified to seeing tbe
body.
Officer O'Connell, sworn, said he saw
the body on the beach and had it removed to Hilbert's undertaking establishment. He found on the body 50
cents, a pipe, K. of L. card, and a top
set of artificial teeth.
D. Higgins testified that he was with
deceased all day Wednesday until a little
after 10 p. m., after which he did not see
him again.
The jury returned a verdict of accidental death, and added ob a rider: We
would suggest thot tbe owner or owners
of the property where the accident occurred should be requested to place a
fence  th»re as a safeguard to life and
rroperty.

Hexing- Exhibition.
The exhibition at the Philharmonic
Hall yesterday evening was probably the
best ever given in Victoria. The combination consisted of four professionals
with several local amateurs. McOlarney,
better known as the "Irish Giant," who
is on his way to meet the Australian
champion, Jackson, is a powerful and
scientific fighter, and in a six round contest with Smith, the middle weight English champion, very favorably impressed
the audience. Smith, however, is one of
the most scientific boxers of the combination, and certainly the best man that
has yet visited Victoria, excepting perhaps the great John L. His ring tactics
elicited continued applause from the audience none of whom seemed inclined to
take advantage of his oiler to pay $100 to
any one who would Rtand opposite him
four rounds.

root Racing;.
Lewis, the sprinter, who beat Bethune
in Seattle in a race of 75 yards, is in this
city with the intention, it ia rumored, of
arranging a match with H. M. Langdon,
at present staying at the Occidental
Hotel.
Langdon has intimated his willingness
to run Lewis 75 yards for $250 or 100
yards for $500, but Lewis wishes to mnke
a race of 75 yards for $1,000 which Langdon has declined as the distance is too
short for his taste.
We can only nope that some arrangement will be arrived at and that the race
will take place here shortly.

Cricket Notes.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite returned from
Victoria yesterJay having bought the
necessary outfit at Short's. A meeting of
the Committee is to be held to-night, at
which various questions affecting the
future of the club will be put and amended.
We would suggest for their consideration
that if our cricket field is to become the
fashionable resort on fine summer evenings and half-holidays that we hope to
see it become, that then a path be cut
through the buBh in a nearly Btraight,
line from the top of Albert Street to the
ground itself, which would shorten the
distance considerably, which fact alone
would amply repay the small extra outlay.

Precaoes Water.
Ascension Island cannot be a very desirable place in whieh to live, if one may
judge from the following description of
tbe difficulty of procuring fresh water.
A. B. Ellis at the island meets an old
friend, who shook hands, reached down
a coat from a peg and put it on, saying:
"Excuse my not putting on a shirt,
will you?" *
"Of course, of course. Takeoff more
of your clothes, if you'll feel more comfortable."
"N-no, It's not that, but the fact ia that
I haven't a shirt clean enough to put on."
I could only murmur my suprise at
this strange circumstance, and endeavor
to look sympathetic. He went on: "I
dare aay you think it odd that I don't
have them washed?"
I thought perhaps he had had some
difficulty with his laundress, had not paid
her bill, but I could not say that, ao I inquired: "Why don't you?"
- He unfolded a horrible tale to the
effect that the water supply of the Island
consists principally of what is distilled
by a condenser, a small quantity being
obtained from Dompier'a Drips and;
Brandreth Wells. That water waa always so Bcarce that it was served out
liko a ration of rum, only mare sparingly, the allowance in prosperous times
being two gallons a day per man.
When clothe* were sent to the wash,
the water for washing tbem had to be
sent with tbem. That the condenser had
now been out of order for some nine or
ten days, and everybody on the Island
had been put on short allowance, so that
they had not enough for drinking, much
less for washing .either themselves or
their clothe*.—Youth'* Companion.
I   Tomato*, lit  Euglsud.
Americans, accustomed to see tomatoes
in some shape on the table nearly every
day of the year, will scarcely appreciate
how nearly that familiar vegetable comes
to being a rare delicacy In England,
lien years ago lt was an exception to find
this delightful fruit on the tables of any
but the wealthy; but today they are to
be found Inmost houses during the season, their extensive cultivation having
brought down the price so as to make
them come within the reach of all. The
tomato, or love apple, as it was formerly
called, originally come from South
America, but it wo* not until the climate
of the United States was found to be
eminently adapted to their growth that
they came into general use, the taste for
the same spreading to Europe.
It ls, in addition to its valuable hygienic- qualities, one of the most profitable fruits to cultivate, and we know of
one private gentleman who sends no leas
than one ton to market daily in the early
season, the price paid for the same averaging 6d. per pound, all of them being
grown under glass. Few come to perfection in the open air, owing to the
short duration of sunshine In England.
Like the olive, it was a long time before,
the people became accustomed to the
peculiar and delicate flavor, but each
day they grew In popularity, so much so,
Indeed, that Cape Town has been requisitioned for a supply of the same when
they are out of season here.—London

ond pointed lt at tha conductor.
"Etta's my ticket"
The conductor walked on and punched
everybody else's coupon. Then he disappeared. The Uttle incident had been
forgotten by almost everybody on the
oar. The cowboy was in a quiescent
state and the oar was quit* still when
the conductor came in. He walked leisurely up the aisle and suddenly stopped
before the cowboy, placed a gnat big
knife dangerously contiguous to his vital

soma members of a family returning

The key had been forgotten and the servants ware evidently asleep. Ringing

but after a time that ceased. The dog
had recognized his friends and refused
to bark, When all efforts to enter
seemed fruitless, the door;was opened by
a sleepy servant accompanied by a very
