DISASTROUS   FIRE.
Quebec, Que., 16.—The terrible fire in
St. Saiiveur, which commenced at eleven
o'clock last night continued until aliout
three this afternoon, having spent its
fury when nothing was left to become*
its prey. Close calculations place the
number of buildings destroyed at aeveu
hundred, on which (including their contents) there is probably $200,000 Insurance. The total loss cannot fall short
of »800,000.
Quebec, May IK.—As anticipated by
my previous despatch, the ttiv> kept under
way until reaching the open fields. A
whole district is now a mass of smouldering ruins. The bomber of homeless
families will reach twelve or fifteen hundred, aim efforts ure being made to have

other public buildings. Miiny accidents

the prevalence of the lire. There are
some children said to We missing, but it

strayed away froui rhetr guardians. Uhe

the St. Sauveur municipality refused the
offer of the city corporation to supply

the insurance companies doing business
here are interested and some of them are

retribution that • follows breaking th*
moral laws. Of the two young and handsome Provencal actors, to whom we are

LEOITIMATE   JOURNALISM.
Yesterday morning's Cohmist contains a
well-written article upon the much
talked of Hoste libel suits which have
just been tried in Victoria. Whilst sympathising sincerely with many of our
contemporaries strictures U|hiii the remarkable charge of the Chief Justice, we
at the same time contend that the action
of Sir M. Beiibie will have a decided
salutary effect upon the newspapers of
British Columbia. Granted that u paper
must pay its way like any other business
venture, yet there is u limit which is
quite easily reached, and to step beyond
which, is not within the province of decent journalism. We have special reference to the rapidly growing tendency,
both in this country and elsewhere, to
eagerly search for and publish the most
disgusting and unclean details whicli can
be learnt, either in, or out of a law court.
Granted it is tlie public who are primarily
to blame in tlie matter; for if they refuse
to buy such unwholesome garbage,
those who have the control of
Our newspapers would doubtless speedily
find out that it was to tlieir interest to
amend their ways, We appeal to such
of the public as may have retained any
sense of what it is fitting that their
children should be allowed to read in the
daily paper—we repeat, we appeal to
such, snd ask if they'' are justified in
countenancing the almost daily publicity
given to the most disgusting—or, at least,
prurient and suggestive—items, which
by any wild stretch of imagination can
be termed news. There is more good
than evil in Ihe world, we are well assured. Time has taught us this great truth
at least, more persons offend both against
themselves, and those dependent upon
them, rather through lack of thought, than
from want of feeling. Yet we contend
it is the bonnden duty of each and ull of
us, so far as in us lies, to take the thought
hefore offending, and we maintain—
though we make no pretence of being iu
the least, squeamish, or strait-
laced—that when u person passing
down the street, sees or rather "noses" a
rotting dung-hill, no good end iu served,
to the private individual, cr newspaper
editor, in taking u pole (his pen and
imagination combined) with which lo
stir up the pestiferous, reeking muss of
dead cats and oyster shells. We only regret our utter inability to put into suitable words our feelings upon the matter
—had we the requisite ability, we would
burn in with acid the advice to newspaper suliscrihers to leave severely alone
those "prints" which endeavor to force a
sale by the publication of such repellent
"stuff" as that to which we have reference. There is yet another class of journals io whicli we would advert before
leaving the subject. We mean those
which, too wise to offend in the manner
to which we have referred above, for
fear of losing the subscriptions of all the
better class oi their readers—yet do not
hesitate to step quite outside legitimate
journalism, hy raking tip any miserable,
patty lie which their devilish ingenuity
can suggest, in order to injure such of
their fellow-citizens as may have hail
the misfortune (?) to incur their enmity.
owing to the conduct of such citizens'
lives, being upon so inlinitely higher u
plans than their own. That the reputation of upright, honorable nlen; whose
sole aim is to do the duty Cod Ihis given
them to perform, should Im ut. the mercy
of some wretched pseudo-journalist, is
enough to make honest men almost.

we said before, is one of the gran,lest
means of instruction that has as yet been
discovered. We all, young and old,
learn more readily through the eye than
through the understanding, This was a
truth well understood by tlie ancient
Greeks and Romans. The French of today (true descendants of the old Latins)
give a slide subsidy lo both theatre and
opera house, understanding fully how
each may be utilized for the good of the
State. Such plays as Shakespeare's—
better far than all the homilies ever
printed—have taught maidens modesty,
kings how to reign, statesman
to govern, children obedience,
men courtesy, and women gentleness.
We hope the day is not far distant when
we may have a theatre of which we shall
not be ashamed, and the acoustic properties of which will be slightly better
than the room iu which entertainments
must perforce at present be held.
Nanaimo is now quite large enough to
attract companies of a far different call1
lire to such as have been in the habit of
inflicting themselves on a much suffering
public. It only remains for the people
to generously accord support to such
companies, or individuals as are worthy
of it; i.e. so soon as we have a fitting
theatre for the display of histrionic or
musical talent.
The recent cause dclcorc in Victoria has
made more apparent, that ol which we
are already well aware, viz., that drunken
rowdyism is liy no means confined to ihe
class defined by John Bright as the residuum. Men of undoubted social standing, good education, and large means,
from time Io time, figure in our law
courts. We refer both to tbo mother
country and her colonies. Is there no
gain of moral power, or of self-respect,
from the fact of good birth, careful training, and liberal education'' No wonder
that the tendency of the age is in favor
of radicalism, when we see to what
depths of degradation such numbers of
young men sink, who should by right be
able to write the word gentleman afler
their names. Before the Public Education Act was passed in England, ils foster-
father, Mr.Forster, used to say that on its
becoming law—drunkenness would be decreased one-third. We, in our innocence,
believed with him. Tho 1'olicc Court
statistics do not bear out the impression
that education has had any, (or at least
but very little) effect on this hideous
curse of so many otherwise, happy homes.
We are inclined to think lhat so far as
drinking, among what are called the upper classes is concerned, ladies have the
remedy largely in their own hands. The
reform, if it is to come at all, must come
from tbe top of the social ladder, and
percolate downwards. Otherwise the
words noblesse-oblige, will shortly become
meaningless.

without tile least prejudice, as iv lesson

"There ls no line of business in which
purchasers are so completely at the mer-

said a leading dealer. "The masses are
caught by mere appearances. They know

retention of these foods in  the mouth.

PAIMTINQ  AND  VHNBERINQ.
"Two diamonds, for instance, may be
of the same size and cut, yet one will be
worth twice, thrice or perhaps a dozen
times as much as the other. Yellow
white diamonds are common and blue
white are scarce, and even' experts find
difficulty In giving the Intermediate
shades their proper place In point of dollars and cents. Among Irresponsible
dealers It Is a common practice to 'paint
the stones so as to make the yellow diamonds whiter and the white diamonds
bluer. The paint will .not even resist
soap and water, and will wear off more
quickly than the thinnest possible film
of gold on a brass ring. Yet for a time
It makes the stone look twice asvaluable
as it really is. A few days ago a gentleman brought a couple of diamonds to me
to determine their value. After I had
washed them in soapsuds he could soarcs-
ly believe they were his own jewels, they
were so yellow. It is a common trick of
confidence men to paint diamonds and
then get a loan on them of twice or
thrice their value. I will venture to say
that two-thirds of the people could not
tell a paste from a genuine diamond.
"Then there is the process of veneering other precious stones. A piece oi
glass or crystal of the desired color and
appearance is taken as a body and a thin
covering of the genuine article is superimposed so aa to convey the impression
of being genuine. Such a stone in a
setting designed to cover up the de
ception would make dupes of half the
purchasers. The danger of being taken
in would not be bo great wero people
bettor posted. Show a man a lot out on
the prairie and tell him It is worth f 100
a front foot and he will laugh at you for
presuming upon his Ignorance, but show
him a ruby or sapphire and tell him it is
worth (1,000 and he will believe you.
Trie masses know nothing about relative
values In gems, and the scope for deception ls enormous.
SOLID AMD BTCFFED GOLD,
"Then as to quality of metal and workmanship. There ls jewelry In the market
sold for solid gold which is so low in
purity that a respectable plate would be
far preferable to the so called solid stuff.
A certain amount of alloy is, of course,
necessary for durability, but the gold
that Is actually manufactured Into
jewelry varies in purity all the way from
tour or six carats fine to twenty. Fourteen carats fine is the standard, but there
is an Immense amount of 'solid' stuff of
the low grade sold annually, and a good
share of it Is palmed off for the standard
purity. This cheap stuff is often dipped
In a bath joss so as to color it The multitudes who are Ignorant enough to accept a 'guaranty' that an article, ls solid
rarely think, perhaps, of degrees ol
purity, and they are wofully token in.
As a rule, there is something about all
plated and cheap stuff that betrays ib
quality to the experienced eye. Every
manufacturer has his own designers,
and, though copying is rife among the
workmen, you will rarely see gcode
cheap In price without* finding them
cheap In design and workmanship.
"Aa a rule, I think people have • '.ude

cept in tho trained gourmand, for the retention of animal substance. One further
fact which I hnvo observed—and that
too often to discard it, as a fhet of great
moment—Is thnt. when a person of ma
ture years has, for a time, given up voluntarily the use of animal food in favor
of vegetable, tho sense of repugnance to
animal food is soon so markedly developed that a return to it ib overcomo with !
the utmost difficulty.
Neither Is this a mere fancy or fad po-
oullar to sensitivo men or over sentimental women. I havo been surprised
to see it manifested in men who were
the very reverse of sentimental, and who
were, in fact, quite ashamed to admit
themselves guilty of any such weakness.
I have heard those who, gone over from
a mixed diet of animal and vegetable
food to a pure vegetable 'diet, speak of
feeling low under the new system, and
declare that they must needs give it up
in consequence; but I have found even
these (without exception) declare that
they infinitely preferred the simpler,
purer, and, as it seemed to them, moro
natural, food plucked from the prime
source of food—untainted by its passage
through another animal body.—Richardson in Longman's Magazine.
Oiling the Shears.
Standing In a prominent hardware
store tho other day, tbe Stroller watched
a lady purchase a pair of shears. She
decided upon tho size and style desired
and tried four or five pairs, rejecting them all because, she said, they
"squeaked." But she was finally suited
with a pair that didn't "squeak" and
went her way. As tho accepted pair
happened to be ono of thoso first refused, tho salesman was asked bow the
metamorphosis was effected. "That,"
said he, "is ono of tho very simplest secrets of tho man who sells shears. Ob-
servo this." Ho picked up a pair of
scissors which "squeaked" wofully when
worked. Tben bo ran his thumb and
forefinger thoughtfully down tho side of
his noso and rubbed them ovor the scissors, whicli camo together as gently and
noiselessly as though saturated with oil.
"That's all thero is of it," ho said.
"You Bee, thero is always a littlo oil collected in tho corners on the outside of
your nostrils. Scrub your nose as hard
as you will, the oil will bo back there in
five minutes. So when a customer comes
in, tries a pair of shears and complains
that they squeak and como together hard,
we con oil them up and mako them
run smooth without exciting suspicion,
What was tho oil put on tho noso for?
To help ^the hardware man out, I suppose. But Ihen what I*havo fold you Is
a good thing for all nervous people who
don't like squeaky shears to know."—

You say that youdo not think that a j
dog has intelligence} Well, you are
wrung, and If you had been up around
the corner of 8tate and Twenty-ninth
streets the other morning you would
have acknowledged that you are wrong :
Up in that neighborhood, on one of tlie
fashionable avenues, there lives a lady
who does her marketing over on State
street. Her pet is a pretty little white
poodli'dogwhlchshokeepslnimaeuhili'ly
clean This dog is a dainty Uttle crea
ture, as white as the proverbial driven
snow, und always with a delicate pink
or bluo ribbon adorning his neck. Well. ;
tho lady went to market on the morning
in question and the dog was with her
The streets were very muddy and sloppy
anil the poodle did some very artistic
work in picking Ills way across the
streets and avoiding puddles. As he
crossed State street at the heels of his so
licitous mistress his finicky actions were
jealously watched by n yellow mongrel
who eyed him from the further corner
This cur glared, at liim until he disup
peared in the corner grocery. Then he
turned tail, took to his heels and disap
peared down tbe alley back of Dearborn
street.
In a few minutes the mongrel cur returned to the corner, lie was accompanied by a hah* dozen dogs, who looked
fully as tough as he did. The crowd took
up a position in a group near tho curbstone and apparently eyed the grocery
across the way very closely. Pretty soon
tho dainty poodle and I.in fond mintresu
came out and Btarted across the street
the dog skipping puddles artistically
Just about as l)e reached the middle ol
the street the signal was given. Tlie
group of curs bounded into the muddy
street and made a bee line for the poodle.
The largest dog took the lead and caught
tho pet amidships. He did not attempt
to bite him—just knocked him about ten
feet through the mud, amid the wails of
his mistress. Every cur in the crowd
took occasion to trample on tho poodle
with muddy feet, and then they gathered
on the opposite curb in a crowd, looked
back at their victim and appeared to
laugh., The victim was covered with
mud and looked as though tome one had
washed windows with him. And the
big mongrel wlio put up the job looked
at his co-conspirators and appeared to
say: "Well, we did that gay duck up tn
fine shape, and I guess we've taught him
not to be so gall us hereafter." Dogs are
intelligent—there is no question about
that.—Chicago Herald.
The Lawn.
The artistic arrangement of the lawn
is, to the owner of overy country place,
a matter of the flrst Importance, or
should be. Time was when flower beds
plentifully besprinkled its green surface
and made of even the smallest plat a
very garden of brilliant coloring, attracting tho eye of every beholder. But
the fashions change here as elsewhere,
and behold, now the popular taste would
point toward the larger expanse of green
with its modicum of shrub and tree,
while the old time flower bed and its occupants smile at you through the garden
fence.
Caro should be taken to have a firm,
beautiful sod in the first place, to which
end a thorough preparation is essential,
and, whether it is to be sodded or sown,
frequent top dressing will insure its continued beauty, especially if cut close and
often.
As to the arrangement, a continuous
variety in form, color and expression
would lend themselves to the eye and
hand of the true lover of artistic beauty.
Hero a certain species of tree, dainty and
delicato in nature, yet perfectly hardy,
would form a beautiful mass when
grouped, like the dwarf arbor vita* and
Irish juniper, while there are for separate ' planting the varieties of Norway

larger varieties to be kept within bounds

Tho story of Minister Cushlng's experience at tlio table of the wealthy Chinese
mandarin, aud how, pointing to a particularly appetizing looking dish, he remarked In inquiring tones, "Quack,
quack?" only to receive the astounding
response, "Bow-wow!" is familiar to
every one. But the first genuine case of
a frco born American electing to oat a
piece of man's humble friend is related
in the following true story:
Little Brent isn young hopeful of Kentucky ancestry who has spent his less
than three years in one of the suburbs of
Cincinnati, and has not that familiarity
with the country which would make
him familiar with all the domestic animals.
Being recently on a visit to the ancestral home in Bourbon county, Ky., he
was for the first time introduced to that
luxury, a roasted sucking pig, whole,
with a roasted apple in its mouth and a
bluo ribbon docking out its tall. It was
supper, and the young man not being
permitted to nave meat for his? supper,
looked with longing but hopeless eyes on
the delicious vision At last he turned
to.nn aunt and said, with yearning tones:
"Aunt Belle, is It dinner or supper?"
Being assured that It woe supper, he
braced himself for a last appeal, saying
stoutly: "Well, 1 think I will have a bit
of tho dog, anyhow."—Youth's Companion.

do."
"Is the Prince of Wales a good speak

"A glorious fellow. If I had only a
sovereign in the world and he wanted
it, he should have it. Why, I brought
him out In '08, and stood behind him
many a time and oft. Does he speak

"Then 1 claim to be the person who
first induced the Princess of Wales to
make a speech in public. I was standing behind her, a good many years ago
it was at n charity dinner or luncheon,
and hor speech was going to be read by
her secretary. I ventured to say: 'If
your royal highness would only say a
word yourself it would make all the
difference,'and she did. The Baroness

ARTIFICIAL   FERTILIZERS
Ureat Improvements iu Them During the
Past Thirty Years.
Among the other titles to distinction
which the Nineteenth century is hereafter to enjoy, one will be found in the fact
that in that age agriculture first began
to be pursued in a systematic manner
th the aid of scientific research. Manuring with the products of the barnyard is* very ancient art, but the resort
to the mine for fertilizers is substantially
an invention of our own times. Chemists first told the farmer the cause of the
frequent speedy exhaustion in the grain
producing powers of the soil; it has
fallen to tho geologist to show whence
may be obtained the phosphatic element
whichls the most quickly exhausted of
all tho elements of plant food in process
of cropping.
Although artificial fertilizers are prac-
tically tie invention of the last thirty
years, the Industries connected with
their manufacture now demand a capital
of about $100,000,000. with an annual
product of about that amount, and the
volume of the industries ia increasing
more rapidly, perhaps, than any other
art which pertains to mining. The use
of artificial fertilizers grew out of the
trade in guano. Thest heaps of bird
dung were first mado use of by tbe Peru
vians. Tlie account of Gareilasco de la
Vega, published in 1004, relates that the
Peruvians in the Twelfth century used
guano beds as a source of fertilizers. Of
such importance did they esteem the
material of these beda that the penalty
of death was imposed by the early Incas
upon any ono found killing the birds
which made theso precious depoaitB.
For many years the guano beds of the
western coast of South America and
other similar deposits wlthbi the tropical region supplied the demands of our
gardens. As the supply of theso guanos
approached exhaustion and the price increased, tho skill of chemists and geologists showed the manufacturers where
to find and how to treat deposits of
mineral phosphates in such a manner
that they might substantially serve to replace the manures of animal origin. In
bulletin'Na 46, of the United States
geological Burvey, Dr. R. A, F. Penrose,
Jr., now assistant state geologist of
Texas, lias given an important treatise
on phosphate deposits, and although his
report mainly concerns the phosphates of
North America, it gives a synoptic account of the known beds of this nature
in all parts of the world. The report
makes it plain that only a small part of
the deposits of this naturo are yet known
to us.
The process of discovery of these valuable resources is now, and for a long
time will be, slow, and this for the reason that tho material occurs in forms
which aro unfamiliar to the publlo or
even to tho ordinarily trained prospector
who seeks for mineral resources. In
most cases the material appears either
in tho form of greenish crystals or in the
shape of nodular masses looking much
like claystones. In neither of these
shapes is it likely to attract general attention. In fact the great deposits at
Charleston, S. O, had been in view for a
century or more. Concretions of cerne
phosphate were dug up in the ditches of
tho rico fields and condemned as worthless until after the war, when a native
chemist, once a man of fortune, but
brought to need by tho havoc wrought
upon that country during the rebollion,
groping about to find somo means of
mending his resources, analyzed tho rejected stones. As the result of bis inquiry they became the very foundation
of the commercial prosperity in his state.

Curiosities of Natural Gas.
One writer asks whether it ls safe to
bore the earth too much. He assumes
the earth to be a hollow sphere filled
with a gaseous substance called by us
natural gas, and he thinks that tapping
these reservoirs will cause disastrous explosions, resulting from the lighted gas
coming in contact with that which is
escaping. Earthquakes, he says, ar
probably caused by vacuums created by
the outflowing gas. He compares the
earth to a balloon floated and kept distended by the gas in the interior, which,
if exhausted, will cause the crust to collapse, affect the motion of the earth in
its orbit, cause it to lose its place among
the heavenly bodies, and falls in pieces.
Another writer thinks that boring
should be prohibited by stringent laws.
He, too,' thinks there is a possibility of
.an explosion, though from another cause.
Should suoh a disaster occur, "the country along the gas belt from Toledo
through Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky
will be ripped up to the depth of twelve
or fifteen hundred feet, and flopped over
liko a pancake, leaving a chasm through
which the waters of Lake Erio will come
howling down, filling the Ohio and Mississippi valleys, and blotting them out
forever."
Still another theorist haa Investigated
tho gas wells with telephones and delicate thermometers and ho announces
startling discoveries. Ho distinguished
sounds liko tho boiling of rocks, and estimated that a mile and a half or so beneath Findlay the temperature of the
earth is 8,500 degs. This scientist says
an immense cavity exists under Findlay,
and that hero the gas ia stored; that a
mile below tho bottom of the cavity is a
mass of roaring, seething flame, which
ia gradually eating into the rocky floor
of the cavern and thinning it. Eventually tho flames will reach the gas, a
terrific explosion will ensue, and Findlay
and its neighborhood will be blown skyward in an instant. Such aroBomeof
tho theories gravely propounded in respect to this new fuel.—Professor Joseph
F. James in Popular Science Monthly.

Advice '.r invalids—If you wish to obtain
quiet refreshing sleep, free from headache,
relief from rain and anguish, to calm and
assuage thc weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate the circulating systems ofthe body,
you will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered hy Dr. J. Collis
Browne (late Army Medical Staff), to which
he gave the name of CHLORODYNE, and
which is admitted by thc profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODVNE is the best remedy
known fur Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm tn
Diarrhoea, and is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.
CHLORODYNE is the only palliative in
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Cancer,
Toothache, Meningitis, \ : . &C,

Russell Street, liloomslniry, London, Deal
Sin—-We embrace this opportunity Of congratulating you upon the widespread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. 1.
Collis Browne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, 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, arc now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. Wc could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Ihowne's Chlorodyne in Diairho1,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Nc-ralgia, thc Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have occurred
uncLr our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholcta itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used '.ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro]
fession and the public, as we «re of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis B-ow ic's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We arc sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION,—Vice-Cnancellot Sir Wi
Page Wood stated that Dr. J, Collis l'ruwne
was, undoubtedly, the inventor of Chlorodyne; that the story of the defendar t, Pre*

Editor Novell, of Iho Port Townsend
Argus, was in Victoria last Sunday. In
his paper he says: "Viotoria is afflicted
with a species of men who ore neither
one tiling nor the other. Tliq.se wbo are
not English mashers, pretend thoy are,
and try to dress ns do flic dear young
chappies {rum the mother country. The

dear fellows go about town with a littlo

failed into oblivion two years ago. But
the Victoria swell has not round it out,
and will, no doubt, continue it until another ''dealt chappie," comes out from

The steamer Sardonyx arrived last
night at Johnston's wharf. She is bound
for Queen Charlotte Islands and way',
ports. The Sardonyx had ou board 70,-
OUOieet of lumber and 200 Ions of merchandise. She had 7o passengers al loai'd,
principally for Skeena and Nuns. Rivers.
Her decks presented a curious sight,
lieing covered with floats for fishing nets,
that are being shipped to the Northern
canneries. Stic took on lioard here some
few thousand, shingles, ami case goods
for Skeena River. One of Ibe oflieers informed ng thnt the Sardonyx was not
much the worse for her late accident, but
added with i a smile, "she aint improved
any." She only stayed u short lime and
then proceeded to.the Bay to coal.
