I; !"...■■ I.   I'.  Planta, s. M.,
I    John   Broun,   familiarly    known   as
"Catch," on remand, charged with the
| larceny of a silver watch, gold chain and
silk liandkercbie from \V. Ganner.
VV. Ganner testified thai the property
produced belonged lo him and was
Stolen Hum him by tin- prisoner lust
Sunday evening while he was lying on
the sidewalk. I was drunk at tbe time.
I informed Constables Trounce and O'Connell.
Constable Trounce, sworn, said:—I
woe standing near tho Old Flag Inn ..n
Sunday evening when prisoner came
Staggering across lhe road and said he
had been robbed adding "I'm tight, hut
not so drunk bill that I know what J am
doing."
Constable O'Connell said thut lie wenl
to n cabin on Victoria Crescent and
found "Catch" in bed. He denied all
knowledge of the robbery, but aft« wards
confessed and showed'me where the
articles were hidden under tho sidewalk
on Wallace Street,
The prisoner deposed tbat he thought
Ganner was a baseball player and tried
to rouse him up as he was* lving drunk
on the sidewalk. His watch'fell out of
his pocket and I tool; it away. I was
afraid someone would lake il from me so
1 hid it under the sidewalk.
His Honor said the crime might have
been considered much more serious if
brought up under the head of robbery
from the person. He also remarked that
Gunner wns no fool as he knew the thief
but ought lu have more sense than to get
drunk. He hoped Ganner would re-join
the Salvation Army.
His Honor complimented Constable
0'Connell|in the manner in which he
had managed the case as thereby Ganner
had recovered his property.
Constable O'Connell said he had never
made a practice of locking up persons
who were simply drunk on the streets
and hoped this case would be a warning
to those who might, molest anyone in
that state.
Judgment was deferred until to-dav.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR,
. rmil and IliDlitlicriii.
:—I
in
I>Ir
Editor Commit,—sir:—i oaserve
the Free Press of yesterday's date,
a letter from "All Anxious Parent," calling mc to account for not having made a
daily inspection of the outhouses of the
School, or for having made such inspection and not having reported the nuisance
of which I Complain. Has "Au Anxious
Parent" ascertained that 1 did neglect my
duty in either of the Maya indicated'.' As
a matter of fuel Mr. Shaw and I have
been in the habit of making such inspection, to which the clean condition ofthe
outhouses will testify, and as " An
Anxious Parent" would have seen, had
he read my letter. A report wns made
by me both to Trustees and to the Officer
of Health, The real cause of offence
seems to he ray having "rushed into
print." On the one hand 1 am blamed
for not draw ing attention to Ihe nuisance
(if nuisance it be), and on the other I am
reproached with having given too much
publicity to it.
1 leave my cose confidently in the
hands of the public. If I have erred, as
"An Anxious Parent" indicates, it hns
not been on the side of negligence, hut,
perhaps, from loo muoh "anxiety."
1 could not read of children, one after
another, being ruthlessly Bnat*hed from
their grief-stricken parents by a terrible
disease, without feeling an eager desire
to do, fearlessly, my part towards discovering some way of checking the advance of lhe destroyer. It the writer of
the article under consideration is really a
"Parent" and really "anxious," he
ought to be glad that 1 have taken every
means in my power towards such an end,
instead of having been SO rash as to have
"rushed into print."
1 have, etc.,

FIGHT UETWEEN SALVATIONISTS ANll POLICE.
London, J une 20.— The Salvation Army
quartered in London were called upon foV
active service in the field to-day to resist
an onslaught of the London Police. Tlie
Salvationists fought bravely, but the
little band was soon overpowered; their
musical instruments and their flagstafl's
were smashed und strewn along the
street, and the most pugnacious of their
number carried off to the lock-up. The
police hud notified the Salvationists that
they would not be permitted to obstruct
the streets, but this onlv served to
heighten the ardor of the Army, and this
evening, with fife, drum nnd banners,
they hurled defiance at tlieir enemies,
and marched down, strong as usual, in
the direction of Exeter Hall, their accustomed meeting place. But they had proceeded but a short distance down the
Strand when the police attacked and
routed them. Many were ignobly
dragged off to prison, where thev will
have to spend the night and will be compelled to find bonds for their good
behaviour before being released.
SBBIOCS INDIAN RISINO.
Helena, M.T., June 25.—Up to six
o'clock last night, there had been no
change in the Indian trouble on the
Flathead Reserve. Captain Sloan's company of Montana Militia is at Jocko, to
which point 1,000 rounds of ammunition
were sent on the Captain's order.
Colonel Lawson. of Fort Missoula, hns
has gone to the scene with threo company." of the Twenty-Fifth infantry and
rations for three davs. Two companys of
the Helena Militia nre at present quartered here and ready to start on a special
train at a moment's notice. A despatch
from Jacko says that the Indians shot by
the sheriff's posse on Monday, died yesterday, and that the situation grows niore
serious. Indians from various parts of
the reservation are Hocking to the scene
of the trouble
in win I'.UNT
and breech clouts. The greatest alarm is
felt for settlers who live on the borders
of I lie reservation, and whom the Indians could massacre before an alarm
could reach lhe troops. At 8 o'clock last
night all save seven of the sheriff's posse
returned to Missoula, leaving the military to assist the sheriff in making
arrests. Twenty-live men spent tlie
entire day trying to find the Indians
wanted, hut without success. Three
hundred Indians arc camped near Ravalli
and swear that they will not give up the
murderers, whom the Indian police and
half-breeds are concealing. The sheriff
is determined to have them and if he
makes another trial, a battle will
surely ensue. The commanding officer
has tailed for more troops.
TRAIN COLLIDED WITH A COW ON A TRESTLE.
Pine Bluff, Ark, June 25.—At a late
hour last night the northbound passenger train on the St, Louis, Arkansas, and
Texas R. li., struck a cow at the trestle
bridge across Crooked Bav. The engine
was thrown from the track and running
across the ties, shattered the bridge to
pieces. The express car, baggage car,
mail car, and two passenger coaches went
into the bayou, twenty-eignt feet below.
S. C. Stafford,Route Agent of the Southern Express Company, was instantly
killed, and Postal Clerks Sanguin and
Jackson were fatally injured. A lady
whose name could not be learned suffered severe contusions on the head, while
a large number of people received less
serious bruises.
AMERICAN BTEAMER   SEIZED   11V  1IAVT1KNS.
New York, June 25.—While discharging pari of her cargo al Gonaives, the
American ss. Osama, of the Clyde steamship line was siezed hv the Haytian war
ship Belize and taken to Port au Prince.
The l'. S. man-of-war Ossipec, however,
happened into thnt poll nnd immediately secured her release.
forty lives were lost though only tour or
five bodies have lieen taken from the
wreck and they are all unknown. Thirty-
one car* togetfier with an engine, went
down into the Loyal Hanna Creek, fifty
feet below the bridge. The conductor
tales that be is positive tbat thirty mes
iie under the wreck. He stopped bii
11 ain at Derry station and put off 46 men
who were coming to Pittsburg from
Johnstown. After receiving his train
orders he started west, and a great many
of the men jumped on his train again.
Tbe last car to go over the bridge was
loaded with lime and it scattered all over
the pile of wrecked cars setting them and
tie- bridge on fire. He describes the
screams aud yells of the imprisoned men
as terrible in the extreme. Firemen from
this place went to the scene and are now
throwing water on the flames. The arms,
legs and bodies of the victims can
be seen protruding from tlie debris.
not a member of tbe crew, except the
conductor remains to tell the number of
those who went down. The west boand
freight collided with the Derry shifting
engine just as the trains reached the
bridge. The track for a long distance is
torn up.

INTERESTING     DETAILS     OF    THE     CSON1N
CASE.
Chicago, June 26.—Thc Grand Jury
this morning resumed inquiry into the
Cronin case. The first witness, Dr. Q.
Cass, who lives on Milwaukee Avenue,
testified that he had a fast horse which
Coughlin and Burke shortly before tho
murder tried to hire for all night service,
but he insisted that they put up |40
guaranty that the animal would be returned in good condition, but this was
refused and the men departed in anything
but good humor. Dr. Cass identified a
picture of Burke as tbat of Coughlin's
companion. An unknown man waa
brought before the jury by Captain
Sclieuttler, and it is said he was the
author of the anonymous letters received
by the States Attorney, giving information of "Camp 20."
Chicago, June 26.—The sensation of
this afternoon was the announcement
that Lawyer Jno. F. Begg», ex-Presidsnt
of Camp 20, Clan-na-Gael, by which
body it is held that the physician'! death
wns decreed, and who was deposed from
the Presidency of the Irish-American
Club a few nights, had been placed under
arrest. He particularly refused to admit
that shortly before Cronin's murder ho
had made a bitter speech in Camp 20 denouncing the physician as a British spy.
At the conclusion of his examination he
was returned to the police station.
LIVES LOST AT SEA.
Baltimore, M. D., June 26.—A two-
masted schooner, Jennie W. Knight,
Baltimore, to Northumberland Co., Virginia was sunk in Chesapeake Bay, off
Sharp's Island on Monday afternoon by
the freight steamer William R. McCabe,
Capt. Fisher and his bride of eight
months, and Fielder Bowler' a seaman,
were drowned. Mate O. S. Bowen, of
the Knight, states that there was no on*
at the wheel of the steamer and nobody
on her deck. He charges also that the
Captain of the steamer made no effort to
save the lives on board the schoonar but
steamed away as rapidly as possible aa
soon as Bowen and the other stsmsn
clambered aboard.

Coast of f.rahalu lalaud.
Mi. James Deans was a passenger by
the Anthracite Mine on Queen Charlotte
Island. He reports the discovery of an
extensive seam of bituminous cool a
short distance from the old Anthracite
Works. On Wednesday last he went up
the Creek from where the Anthracite
Tunnel is being opened up and discovered croppings. In company with Mr.
Mel nnes, who is managing the work of
development, the croppings were followed
a considerable distance. Mr. Deans says
it is the same seam that W. A. Robertson located at a point further north, and
on which be has been working for some
time. The deposit is undoubtedly a rery

MURDERER  LYNCHED.
Shephei'ilsville, June 25.—At one o'clock this morning a mob entered the jail
and demanded thc keys to the cells of
murderers Ardell and Mitchell who on
June 10th shot and killed peddler Lavine,
while trying to rob him, Jailor Cowman
took his stand nt. the entrance with a shot
gun but the mob soon overpowered him
and his wife thinking he would be murdered came forth wilh the keys. Bowman pleaded with the men not to take
Mitchell as be believed he wrs innocent.
They left Mitchell in his cell but warned
him of his future and told him he could
thank Bowman for saving bis life and
that it was their Intention of taking both.
After they had securely fastened Ardell
tho command was given to inarch and
with curses, oaths and yells they left
with the doomed man, Nothing could
be learned as to the direction taken by
the mob as they commanded all to remain behind.

Mr. McDonald, of the Windsor Hot*.,
Victoria, nnd two friends named respectively Ogilvie and McDonald, sailed
from' Nanaimo yesterday afternoon for
Sitka, Alaska, in a small sloop. The
party originally left Victoria a few days
ago.'and arrived here yesterday to pay a
visit to Mr. Roberts, watchmaker, who
is an old friend of Mr. McDonald. The
party intends to remain absent about
three months prospecting and hunting.
The three friends are well supplied with
guns, ammunition and fishing trickle, and
hope to be able to render a good account
of themselves in cose of meeting with
bears, panthers or any wild animals during their explorations.
The first stoppage will be at Queen
Charlotte islands where it is probable they
will do considerable prospecting. After
leaving the Islands the next objective
point will be Sitka, but, doubtless, several places along tbe Coast will be visited
for the purpose of hunting and obtaining .
fuel and water.
Several persons in town expressed a
desire to go on such an extended picnic
but were unable to spare the time.

JUSTICES'JUSTICE
Many and bitter have been the complaints made against the "greal unpaid"
in England. As a class perhaps, they
have been maligned almost us much as
tho "great unwashed." The average
country J. P. is not invariably a SoiOM
in spite of the Important letters alter bis
name. We once heard Lord Siiebiirooke
(then Rodeet Lows), assert iii u public
speech at Fast Retford, that the "Queen
could make an Earl of anv cobbler." lt
is needless to add that the inference intended to be drawn was that lhc cobbler
remained essentially a cobbler, and not
an Earl notwithstanding the Queen's
favor. Many have been the projects for doing away with the
unpaid Magistracy of England, hitherto without success. Doubtless, if lhe
only feasible plan, namely that of
appointing Stipendiaries is carried into
effect, it will be of enormous advantage
to the country at large, even though it
adds very materially to the expenditure
required in the furtherance of justice.
Which of us has not heard of the Reverend J. P., whosentalittlegirlol'Tyeni'sto
prison lor taking a flower from a brother
magistrate's garden "'Occasionally accounts
reach us of some poor laborer—earning
possibly his fourteen shillings a week—
who has been tempted to knock over a
rabbit with his stick, as it crosses his
path whilst going to nr from bis daily
work. His sin is discovered, he is
brought before a magistrate and sent to
prison, which means that come what may
in the future, be will never be the same
man again—he has lost his self-respect.
This mooted reform of replacing
the unpaid by the paid—lhe unskilled by
the skilled—may answer well enough in a
rich and populous country like England,
hut in newer and consequently poorer
countries, we are not so sure that a similar plan would be found to work satisfactorily, though at the same time we are
well aware that our present system of administering justice is by no means ns
perfect as it might he. Frequently we
have been asked to make reference to tbe
abuse of justice whicli the custom of allowing magistrates, at least in Nanaimo,
to receive a commission so to speak, on
the conviction of certain prisoners who
have the misfortune to appear before
them, must, and does lead. Of course
the fault is in the system, not in the men.
The system as it is worked at present, is
we think, and as all will probably admit
— far from perfect. Quite recently we
have bad all instance of how Justices'
justice is doled nut in Alberni. .Mr.
FRANK McQnu.ox's two trials for Arson
are an example of n lamentable miscarriage ot (so-called) justice which occurred
at that nourishing West Coast settlement
only Ihis very Summer. We make no
pretense of offering an alternative scheme.
All we wish to impress upon lhc Public
is, thai the system is a rotten one which
allows of such gross miscarriage. Il is
lor those who arc in authority to find a
remedy for this state of things. All we
propose tn do in regard tn the matter is
to draw attention to an evil which has
long been recognized, and concerning
which many in this community feel
deeply. With regard to the McQuillon
affair, that should lend a warning to exercise more care in the selection of the men
who sit on the .Magistrate's bench. With
regard to the "commission business"
which obtains here, all we can say is that
the sooner it is supplanted by a more
satisfactory method, the sooner will the
I leneral Public feel assured that substantial justice, and nothing more, is administered in our Police Court.
tho people take no interest in their doings, there must creep into the Schools a
lisllessness which will in the end Impair
their efficiency. We have it on the very
besi authority that the Superintendent
of Education has a high opinion of tlie
excellence nf the Schools of Nauaimo.
We believe thai this city ranks second tn
none in the Province for its educational
advantages, and yet. instead of gladly assisting the TeacUt .i in  keeping  up the
standard of ofr/1-'5- by our approval nf
the exertions it1'!',"',''pupils, we allow
them to work find acbi've success without a word of isympatiy- " I* a" very
well to say, "But the teachers are paid
for their wobIc" So they arc. Then
do not eompla/in, or, if tbey do. it is for
the sake of thfelr schools, fnr thev, as well
as everyone wlio know* anything about
education, know   well   lhe  value nf lhe
occasional visits to their school* nf
parents and trustees. Lotus then turn
over a new leal and make a resolve—
those of ns who arc parents especially—
that next term we will.visit the schools
more regularly Ihan we have done.
There are only two more days before tbe
holidays. To-morrow is the examination of the Boys' Public School, and Friday of the High School. We trust the
attendance of the public al these examinations will bo greater than the attendance
at the examination held to-d*v—parents
at least ought to be present—and we
trust and are sure that the generous people of Nanainio will not allow the voting
people to go home, as some girls must
have gone home to-dny, with lumps in
their throats and tears in their eyes, because the customary rewards for tlieir diligence were not forthcoming.
MISl I'A. LAN ROUS NOTES.
I.oiin Hartington, replying to a resolution passed at the Gladstonian meeting
held at Hacup in opposition to the Chamberlain meeting, condemning his conduct
in supporting the Tory Government, declaring his votes on the questions of Ireland, Welsh Disestablishment, perpetual
pensions, and lhe reform of the House of
Lords to be diametrically opposed lo
Liberal principles and opposed to the
feelings nf the majority of his constituents, and calling it]ion him to resign,
writes, on June 3rd, as follows:
"With reference to tbe part of Ihe
resolution which refers to my own conduct, I am of opinion that tlie votes
which I have given on each of the questions referred to a vo in no way inconsistent with, but, on the contrary, are
entirely in accordance with, the declarations which I have made In my
constituents both at the last general election and on former occasions; and
therefore. wh'*e I deeply regret thai they
have failed In obtain the approval of any
portion of the electors of the RoBsendale
Division. I am unable to see any reason
why I should resign the seat which I
have lhe honour tn occupy.
1 remain yours faithfully,
Hartington."
CoNsinuii Mii.i: sui prise and Indignation
has been expressed in certain high social
and political circles iu London that Lord
Randolph Churchill should have accepted an invitation from Sir Charles
Russell lo meet Mr. Parnell at dinner.
Surely l''nglisli politics mnsl be fast becoming a mosl undesirable commodity in
which in deal, wdien tho opponents of
lhc Irish leader think it necessary lo
ostrac'se him completely, and tn treat
him as a species of social Pariah. II is
not altogether easy to believe that any
considerable number nf men and women
possessed of average intelligence could be
guilty of tak;ug up so utterly absurd a
position. What has always hither;
to disiiiiguish.il English politics
is lhal political differences are not
carried Into privat9 relations. For our
own part, we should as soon think of
quarrelling wilb a person because we
differ upon politics, as because wc may
differ upon ail. Differences of opinion
arc one of lhe clunnisofexistence. There
are few things more dreary than consorting with people who agree with us in
everything. This wc hold to be equally
true either in mi.'home life or in our relations with the outside world. "Agreeing tn differ," would appear to be almost
meaningless tn a small, If select, portion
of Ihe "upper crust" of  English  society.

The stall-annual examination of the
girl's school which camo oir to-day, gavo
us mi opportunity of judging ol tlio high
state of efficiently of that establishment,
It wus very gratifying tn note the bright,
intelligent appearance of the girls, ami
the manifest interest in their pupils ex-
hibtted hy the lady teachers who deserve
the highest credit for their exertions,
Bul where was tho public? Where were
thc people tn whom teachers and pupils
look for their approval—the trustees and
the relatives niul friends of the pupils?
The Chairman of the Hoard, Mr. Bate—
who deserves ureal praise for the interest
ho takes In all matters affecting the welfare of the city—represented the Board of
Trustees j while one clergyman (Mr. j
Good) and nne or two ladies represented
lhe public. Ono prize only was presented to a school of about 1100 children 11
Surely the people of Nanaimn, who are so
generous in other matters, must be ig-
nornntiSf the intense pleasure that thei
gift of n few inexpensive books would
have given those girls, who, by hard
work fnr the past six months, have
earned the highest places in their classes,
nr they certainly would have given it small
sum to send them home happy, bearing
lo tlieir parents some tangible proof of
tlieir diligence. The fault lies, as wo!
have pointed out before, in the apathy
of the people towards our schools. They j
assume* that, everything is right, and
.that the schools are flourishing (ns wc i
ure glnd to think they are), nnd eonse- j
ipiently, that they need trouble themselves little nbnut them. But this is a
sad mistake. Teachers and pupils need
encouragement and ought to have en-
couragement when they are doing their
duty.     Bui     when     thev    find     that
Tun explanation of the telegram which
reached us from Shanghai, three days
ago, in which it was slated that Russia
had seized an island—to serve as a coal-
inRstation and harbor for her war-ships—
just off the Cerenn Ooasl may—lie in the
foot (tlie knowledge of wbloh bus just
reached us) that "the difficulty in Oorea
between the Foreign Adviser to the King
and tlie Chinese Resident is to be settled
by the withdrawal ol both. Mr. Denny,
it is said, will not return to Corea, and
Yuan, the Chinese resident, will be succeeded by two officials who have been
closely connected with Ll Hung Chang,
one, Lo, having been bis private secretary. It is denied that any large sum of
money is lieing given to Mr. Denny in
consideration of bis retirement."
It may be that the astute and wily
Russian believes in the old axiom "Make
bay while the sun shines."

Tbe standard thermometer Is a combination of practical science aud requisite workmanship, and for a (irst-class instrument
you have to pay as many dollars us you pay
cents for the ordinary article, and then you
can't swear by it, becauso there are so many
Influences that affect the correctness of the
thermal register, not to speak of tbo influences upon the completed instrument by the
location of tlio latter.
Numerous precautions aro required to
turn out a standard instrument First of
all comes tbo choice of a tube. Tba bore
has to be carefully tested to too whether it
so of uniform capacity. In most of tbe tubes
the bore is wider on ono end than on tho
other, although tho difference may bo ao
small that it requires very delicate operations to establish   it.    Quite   frequently in a
hundred pounds of theBmall tubes not more
than half a doseo aro found whieh are absolutely true, because from the very nature of
tbe case tbe bore, being produced by blowing, is in fact nothing olso than a portion of
a vory elongated cone. After tbo tube has
boon selected tbe bulb Is fixed by molting
one oud of tbe tul-o iu thu Jl/ituo of nu
alcohol lamp and bICwing in at tint othor.
Then a small quantity of mercury is admitted, liy alternately cooling and beating
the bulb the very delicate thread of tho
fluid is driven from ouo ond of tbe tube to
the otlier, and during this prooesi Its length
is carefully measured in all parts. Should
tbo Length alter lu various situations the
workman knows that tbe capacity of the
bore is not uniform.
To make tbo bulb of tbo required sizo I.s
solely a matter of practice, as no machinery
has been invented to produce it automatically. If tbo bulb is too largo the instrument
will register very slow, and if it is too small
it will not contain sufficient mercury to register vory high temperature. Tlio shape of
tbe bulb is also of importance. The spherical shnpo is considered best adapted to resist tbo varying pressure of tho atmosphere,
while cylindrical b.ilbi oxpnse larger surfaces of mercury, and are therefore preferred for more delicate Instruments. Very
small and thin bulbs for small quantities of
mercury havo boon mado, but the indicating
column must necessarily be so fine as to be
usoloss for practical purposes. Spiral or
coiled tubular bulb; wore mado so as to obtain ii greater and more oven distribution of
surface exposed to tho atmosphere, but
these bulbs require such a thickness of glass
tbat tho effect sought to be obtained is frequently nullified.
Shape and size of bulb and tubo having
boon determined, the Ailing is dono hi a very
ingenious manner, and alike for both mor-
cury and alcohol 08 thermal registers. Th
bulb is boat. -.1 while tbe open ond uf thi
tubo i-j linho lde 1 In the fluid, say mercury.
Upon allowing tbo bulb to cool tbo attUO-
speric pressure drives someoC the meronry
Into the tub-,1, and this process Is continued
until thero is sufficient mercury iu bulb and
tubo. It is of the greatest importance that
the morcury bo free from moisture ami air,
and to accomplish this tb < metal is boiled
beforo tbo filling process, After the filling
it is boiloil again iu the tubj, and wbon tho
explosion of air and moisture is complete
tho workman dexterously closes tho tube by
tbo flame from his blowpipe.
That flnifcbes tbo purely meohanioal part
of making tho thermometer, for tbo graduation of the scale may truly bo termed a scientific proceeding, at least so far as graduating a stan I ard instrument is concern *d. In
tho common tbormumetor the tube Is lixed
to a sculo on which the degrees are markod,
while in tho standard instrument the*caleis
engraved in the stom itself in order to in-
suro tho greatest possible accuracy of observation. Tho exact freezing point has to be
determined first, nnd this is dono by means
of melting ice, which has always the same
temperature, provided the water from
which tbe ice congealed is pure, Tlio bulb
and tho lower portion of tho tube aro placed
in melting ice, and where tbo morcury is
stationary tho freezing poht I is marked.
This is a comparatively easy matter, but to
determine the boiling point is more difficult,
because it varies with tbo pressure of tho
atmosphere.
Under certain conditions, combining certain atmospheric pressure at a certain attitude, the boiUug point can bo ascertained
with exactness, but ordinarily, oven iu good
instrumonts, tlie boiling point is approximately ascertained by actual experiment.
A OOpper boiler is providol with au open
cylinder iu the top serving a; a vehicle for
tho water to be boilod. Tito open cylinder
is just long enough to permit the insertion
ofthe thermometer, so thut tiu bulb does
not touch tho water, and over this cylinder,
or rather around it, is place I another to
protect tho former from tho air. Ai the
vapor of tho boiling water rises tiu tubo is
gradually lowered, so as to kosp tiu top of
tho mercury just visible above Llu cylinder.
Whero tho morcury remains stationary the
boiling point is obtained and mark.*-1 olT,
"subject to corrections for errors,11
The space between the freezing uud boiling point is next divided Into a certain number of equal degrees Fahrenheit makes HJ
degrees tho freezing and St!) degrees tho
boiling point; consequently the Intermediate space is divided into IbO degree*. Celsius proposes zero for tho freezing point and
100 degrees for the boilimr, point, Reaumur
has tbe freezing and boiling' points separ-
arated by 80 instead of 10U degrees. Fahrenheit arrived at bis graduation by obsorv-*
ations and experiment-; made in Icclund.

CREATION'S   LOWER   ORDERS.
Don't, Says   ISurtlette,   Try   to   Stop   Yuu*-
Hu.il>-.ml from Smoking.
A woman, whom she onco met on the train,
told Lydia Jackson Lamphere how sho kept
her husband from sraokiug. "On our wedding day," she said, "I mado what I called
a declaration of principles to my husband.
I said to him that It was my purpose to mako
his conduct my guide in all respects; tbat in
j our family thero would bo iv- separate standards aud whatever ho would think right for
himself should bo right for me." Vou see
I what was coming. "Oneevening supper was
i over, the shades drawn and tho lamp lighted,
I ami wo were seated for an evening of reading
j or sewing, when my husband took up his
'. pipo for an evening smoke. Seeing this, 1
| calmly drew from my pocket, a pipe, which 1
; began to fill witb tobacco exactly as ho was
doing. As ho proceeded, so did I. I coolly
I scratched a match, lighted the pipe and took
a whiff."
Well, as tbo woman told Lydia tbe story—
j tho husband of courso gave up.    Good story,
as far as It goes, but I can't help thinking
} what, oh, suffering sisters, what would have
happened if that kind hearted  husband had
I not relented, but had kept on smoking, and
j permitted—invited—nay,  urged his  wife to
join him!   What kind of an evening would
they—thut is, what kind of an evening would
sho bavo enjoyed?    Oh, sisters,  never,   no
matter what Lydia Lampherc's friend tells
you, never try that cure on your husbands***-
your respective husbands, tbat is.    ft won't
work,  with all men.    It would euro ouo of
you of smoking; that I am sure of, but it
i wouldn't bo him.    Yon may safely try it, if
j you aro fond of excitement of a rather limp
|and stringy kind; it won't kill you, even if
I you do tako your first smoke with a brier
j pipo and nigger head tobacco.    But you can
i produce tho samo effect upou yourself with a
| milder drug.
I tremble—especially about tho sboulders-
when I tbink what awful scenes may bo pre
olpitated in happy homes by tho fallacious
theories taught In this story. Why, sister, I
havo seen a boy, a great, strong, rough boy,
14 years old, so wrought upon by a mild live
cent cigar, not more than*half smoked, f bat
he has stretched himself supinely upon the
cold bosom of tbe Inhospitable earth and
waited with an unconcern that would chill
your blood for death, his father or the doctor
to como along, aud ho didn't cure a cent
which got tho first whack at him. And v* ben
you think of a grown up woman, a married
woman, mother of children, may be, starting
in on a pipe—well, I don't want to think of
It, that's all. I'vo got to go to bed some timo
to-night, and I can rest just OS well without
tho nightmare as I can with it nnd not "holler," till I wake up tbo whole house. But 1
cannot closo without a parting word of warning. Don't you listen to Lydia Lamphero on
this question, for she's your friend, and I
don't want you to turn against her.
You tako tbo advico of a mun wbo knows
more about pipes than you do about
husbands, and dou't j^ou go to smoking In order to break him off it.
Even if you don't die, you might learn
to liko it as ho does, aud then whero would
you be, if ho should want to quit? Dou't you
smoke pipes; you chew gum, if you must do
something wicked. You cau worry tho immortal life Out of him with that if you'll only
keep at it, and talk and chew a great deal at
tho samo timo. That's very effective. You
keep tho quid and your jaws going und he'll
givo up drinking, chewing, smoking, betting,
swo—no, ho'll grow worse nbout (hat, but
he'll givo up everything else. Unless, fn a
furious spasm of insanity, he breaks your
jaws with a cricket bat und jumps off tha
bridge at the end of tho third week.—Robert

he gave tho name of CHLORODVNE, and
which is admitted by thc profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever

Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1SS0: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street. Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Browne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hin-loslan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is Imported Into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to tha
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarilm*,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Rregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have occurred
und*.t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used any other foini of this
medicine ihan Collis Browne's, from a linn
conviction lhal it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro]
fession and the public, as we are of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browned, is A DELIBERATE
PREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE

disease has heen in the place lately.
.las. Harvey—Mr. Chairman, we are
now together to consider some mean.- ol:
abating the terrible  scourge  now  dovos-
luting our city.    The epidemic has   been
in our midst ior about ten months and  1
think that some measures ought to be
adopted, a thorough investigation of the
citv ought to be  made  hut  I  think il
ought to be done by duly qualified per-1
sons and I think certain funds ought to |
be devoted hv the City Council  for this I
purpose. This might help as well to keep |
hack the disease known as typhoid which
has disturbed this cily for some time.
Mr. Glaholmo seconded Mr. tlaslem's
motion.
Mr. Haslem said it was bis intention to
move that the matter of appointing inspectors lie left In the hands of the City
Council.
The Chairman—This resolution only
embodies what the Sanitary Committee
has already decided upon doing, hut it
may be done more thotottghly through
these means.    Molion Carried.
J. Harvey—1 suggest lhat their reports
may he sent in immediately, that action
may he taken on the matter as the hot
season is upon us. I move that this he a
resolution.
J. H. Pleace—Would it not he as well
to look after the dirt and filth heaps
around town'.'
T. McLay seconded .I. Harvey motion.
Motion carried.
The Chairman in reply to Mr. Harvey
said that the Council could probably be
got together immediately.
U. Ramsey—How many cases of diphtheria are there in town. I would like lo
see the houses where it has occurred
quarantined.
The Secretary thought thai it would he
as well to have the opinion of a medical
man on the subject of quarantine.
,T. Dixon thought it was altogether impossible to quarantine small houses and
shanties in a cily. like one could a steamship.
.1. Harvey said that diphtheria was, in
his opinion, quite as deadly as yellow
lever, and that if it were not in the
power of lhe City Council to quarantine,
why not? and let a bylaw be passed to
that effect.
The Chairman said that in houses
where diphtheria abounded the City
Conned had decided to quarantine rather
against the advice of their legal adviser,
hut they would try it.
Dr. walkem—When you deprive a man
of his liberty yon also deprive him of his
Ih iug. Is the Oity Council prepared to
undertake the expense ni providing for
the man and bis family? What are you
going to do with these poor people? Are
you prepared to supply Ihem with the
necessaries of life?
Dr. Praeger—Immediately on the outbreak of diphtheria I looked over the
By-Laws, and discovered lhat Ihey were
totally inadequate to meet the case. I
immediately communicated with you
Mr. Mayor, and you called a meeting of
the City Council and overhauled the By-
Law which was totally inadequate. Your
legal advisers returned your By-Law having struck out every disease excepl
smallpox. In England they have hospitals where persons Buffering from contagious diseases are removed. 1 don'l
think anyone can call what wchave here
an epidemic. It is only within the last
lew weeks that 1 could point to two or
three houses near together in which cases
existed. I do not think that quarantining
the houses iti which the disease has an existence will necessarily stamp it out. We had
several cases of the disease at .Nanainio
River. No one can complain of the
drainage there. Diphtheria has broken
out in some of the hest drained places in
the world. Science is divided as t" the
cause and spread of the disease. Suppose you spend ten million dollars in
draining the city how are you to prevent
someone coming into the city and spreading the disease. The only way I see is
for some law to he passed that wi" provide for the public health of the entire
province.
A. Haslem, M. P. 1',—Don't you think j
you could more successfully combat the
disease in a place where water, air, &c,
were pure than  under adverse circumstances.
Dr. Praeger—Yes, ol course. I don't
stand here as Hie advocate of dirtiness.
I am a lirm believes thai "Cleanliness is
above Godliness." I am hound to be led
by what is written on the subjecl by
higher authorities.
Mr. Haslem—Eminent authorities in '•
Brooklyn declare  that   sewer gas- is the
great, cause of the i "sense.
Dr. Walkem said thai It was a strange
coincidence thut in Nanaimo. as iu a
town in Scotland, diphtheria broke out
soon after the citizens commenced watering the streets.
Dr. I'raeger—In justice to the city. 1
must say that the majority of typhoid
cases in this town were Imported from
Comox.
,f. Harvey—There were two .uses nf
typhoid from Comox.
W. Roos—I tbink the least the City
Council could do after granting a charter
to the Water Works Company is to see
that they supply pure water. The water
looks very uninviting.
.1. Harvey—I should like to say that
very few of the cases occurred where the
families used the Water Works Company's water.
1). Nightingale thought that if diptheria
had occurred in certain places in the city,
if it came from the water, the whole
parties would have been dead. Commercial Inlet has been a place of deposit
for the last fifteen year, and never has a
shovelful of deposit been removed nor
chloride of lime used. Doctors ought to
he more careful where they go after leaving houses in which diptheria exists.
,1. Dixon thought tbat Mr. Nightingale
had struck the nnil on the head. He
thought doctors ought to endeavor to
prevent, the spread of d:seaso aud look
after disinfectants. Suppose I go to a
store and ask for a disinfectant, and they
haven't any they may sell me a bottle of
water.
Dr.Praeger—Disinfectants have been
provided by the Council.   The fault  is
witb the people themselves as they will
not obey their medical adviser.
