As far as wo know at present,  the
simplest   forms  of   matter—the   ele-
■■ meuts—are  distinct entities and  in-
i capable of being transformed into one
another, Thoy unite among themselves to form all llio Innumerable
substances of which llio universe is
made up, but in themselves are unchangeable nnd indestructible. A
piece of iron, for instance, can never
bo changed inlo a piece of copper, or a
grain or hydrogen gas into oxygen;
neither can we destroy or annihilate a
single fttom of Ibeso elements. There
is. Just exactly as much hydrogen,
oxygen, iron, copper, etc., in tho universe, us there has been in all tlio past
ages, ami exactly tbo samo amount
Will continue to exist to all eternity,
although thoir combinations with
themselves and other elements may bo
altered an infinite number of times.
Until some future investigator, in following certain clows at present but
dimly perceived by us, discovers thai
the elements are but modifications of
one prima] form of mutter,  we must
I continue to believe that they aro unchangeable. When, however, we
turn to the different forms of force
and energy  by  which, with  mailer,
| the universe reveals itself to our senses, wo find a verv different state of
affairs. Heat, light, electricity, chemical action, magnetism, force or work,
are all readily changed from one to
(ho oilier with (he greatest case. A
pound of coal or pure carbon will,
when oxidized or burnt, always produce exactly so many unite of beat.
From this heal just so much power or
work can bo obtained und no more;
this power will produce an invariable
number of units of electricity or magnetism; and llio electricity, when
transformed inlo chemical action, will
decompose a definite weight of a
chemical compound, Every pound
of coal, every ounce of food, represents a certain amount of energy, and
by no possibility can a greater amount
be obtained from it. It is tho legiti
mate field of (ho inventor to endeavor
to utilize all this energy in tho form
in which it is desired and prevent the
enormous waste by its transformation
into undesircd forms, which at present
occurs even with our best and most
economical machinery. Any attempt
to tlo more is ns sure lo end in failure

Far tip in tho mountains of Ceylon

threads twining round your faco like

has woven it hikes up his position in

but pleasant,    If you forget yoursell

are tho webs that birds tho size ci

Iho  coils  about  the  head;   till   thc

Tho Cobra's tlovengo.
it is commonly believed among Iho
Hindoos that no animal is moro revengeful than tho cobra, und that if a
person attempts to kill it, or does kill
Its mute, it never rests until it has
wreaked vengeance. An employe of
the Madras Railway company, while
seated on tho veranda nf bis bungalow,
observed two large cobras on tbo bar
ren plain immediately in front of the
house. Arming himself with a sharp
cutlass, he sallied forth and succeeded
in killing one id' lhe reptiles, but the
other, although wounded, made its
escape. Ho then returned to bis bungalow, und, later in tbe tiny, prepared
to dress, when ho wns horrified lo see
a cobra coining in at the window. He
(led in alarm, and when he returned
with a gun the snake had disappeared.
Tho next night, when returning home,
ho was pursued by tho samo snake,
and bud all he could do to escape
This bud such an effect on his mind
that ho made application for n cbaugo
[ to another division; but beforo the ap-
I plication could bo granted tho venge-
] ful cobra actually attacked him ouo
i evening whilo at tea and bit him on
tho leg. Tho other guests killed the
snake, but tho man never recovered in
spito of tho best medical aid.—Philadelphia Times.

Tho stump of a largo spruco tree extracted from tho roadbed of tho street

London, June 22.—The excitement iu
1 diplomatic political circles over Servian
' affairs increased considerably during the
past week. Much concealed anxiety un
doubtedly prevails regarding possible
suits  of the diplomatic  interc    i f
Austrian Statesmen with  Servia during
the nest i'i-v weeks respecting alleged
Austrian interference in lhal little Slate;
and also  as  to   whal   action   Austrian
! authorities in Bosnia und   Hergegovina
: will lake in the matter ..I two million
j serfs, in those provinces celebrating tho
1600th anniversary of tbe Battlo ol  Kas-
sove.   Servia itself is not such a military
power as   is   generally   believed.     The
i regular  army al   the  present   moment
:' numbers 18,000 men.    Servia possesses
j nbout 100,000 new  breech-loading rifles,
1 but nu equal number more are needed.

the country is bound handnndfool by an
iniquitous  treaty  forced   upon   it   by
Austria.     Hungary  and   the   crippled
Bnances of lhe State have pouched in a
most prejudicial manner on the military
Btrength of the country,   In iheir financial policy the chief aim of tho radical
ministry is to liberate the country  from
foreign    dependence.     The    commercial   treaty    with    Austria    has   still
three years to run, but it will bo denounced   at    the earliest   possible  moment,    hi another direction the Government   is   endeavoring   lo   obtain  good

Anglo-Austrian Bank and the Tobacco
Monopoly from the hnender Bank. In
other respects it is (be intention of the
present Ministry to interpret tho new
Constitution in ii liberal spiril, and to secure among other objects the liberty of
the press and the right of public
meeting. There can bo no doubt that
the existing Government In Servia ro-
presents   the true   sentl nts  of   the
vast muss of the people, There is
hardly a peasant in the country who
would address a Minister or even one of

Editor Courier,—Sir:—The terrible
mortality from diphtheria, that has prc»
vailed in this city for the Inst year,
prompts me to call your attention to the
stale of the closets of our Publir Schools.
The stench arising from them ip at times
unbearable. 1 have eomiiiunicated with
thc Officer of Health ami with the Secretary of the Board of Trustees nn the subject, bul both of these officers, though
anxious to abate the nuisance, seem to
be powerless. 1 have received from Mr,
Thomson, Secretory of the Board, a tin
ot Chloride of Lime, which hns somewhat improved matters, but in spite of
all disinfectants, a larcc public closet
used bv several hundred children, cannot fnil to be a menace to the health of
fc'io city. Thc disease seems lo be particularly fatal in the case of children,
and I consider thai I should be negligent
of my duly, were 1 not to draw public attention to n danger which threatens tbe
young people under my charge. The
touchers, oi thr Public Schools, as well as
myself, have been very careful fn excluding suspicious cases of sickness from tlm

perchance, tbe germs of infection lie
within our precincts. I do not say that

ing critic. What is wanted, however, is
not only the ability to point out the evil,
but to suggest the remedy. By the foregoing sentence we would not be understood to mean that we ourselves have an
infallible nostrum to offer in respect to
ibe matter of which the letter from our
deservedly esteemed Principal ofthe High
School treats. Our intention is merely to
use our best endeavor to induce the Public to take this matter up with something
like energy, and to shake oil' the apathy
with which it is lhe custom to regard the
prevalence of the hideous disease which
[or many months past has made such
fearful blanks in the family circles of this
lown. That the powers with which our
Health Officer is invested are at present
unite inadequate and equally ill-defined,
is a matter of common notoriety. What
we would suggest, to come to the point,
is this: let us empower a duly qualified person, accompanied by say an
Alderman or even policeman, to png a
visit to each house whloh has contained a
case of diphtheria during the last twelve
months. Let them examine the closets,
inspect and cause to be analyzed the
water supply used by the occupants ef
such house; make enquires as to the
general health of the occupants, note the
drainage and whether refuse of any kind
is lying exposed in the immediate neighborhood. It may be objected that this
plan wonld mean the expenditure of
more money by the Council antl that
more money is not picked up in the
gutter. We admit the objection, but
what we don't admit, and we think that
we at least in this carry the sense of
tbe entire community with us in so
thinking, is that human lives are immeasurably more valuable than dollars
and cents, badly as we can do without
the latter. After all, even our ublest
scientific men—and it is our firm conviction that tbe medical men in this dis-
todoubt it— we should strive to the best
of our ability to advertise our country in
such a manner that the qualifications
which enable British Columbia to pose
! ns an antidote to systems ''run down" by
long residence in n semi-tropical climate
I must    speedily   become   known.      The
class of visitors to whom we have  refer-
ist. desirable one,   and we
think that it would be well worth our
while to act upon Consul Troop'B suggestion and advertise the advantages and
pleasures to be derived from a term of
resilience in what would soon be recognized as a famous sanitarium, a little
more widely than has hitherto been the
case, at least in that particular part of
the world to which be referred. An
English resident In China and Japan
must perforce, if he would not have a
hopelessly impaired constitution, take a
long leave of absence <il least once in
twelve years. Now—as Mr. Troop pointed out—if European residents there,
knew bow admirably adapted this country is for tourists wishing to recuperate
tlieir stock oi health, numbers of them
would doubtless take more frequent holidays than is the custom at present, and
instead of waiting until they are at last
obliged to go to Europe for a few months,
they would run over here say once in 3
or 4 years.

destruction might he made complete,  we
believe, in an hour; but let it once gain
bead-way antl our farmers and   stock-
| raisers will find that like their fellow-
colonists in Australia, a stock range or

up of "beer and skittles."

supposing that Mr. I.aboucbereis correct
in his view of the matter. From his
paper, Truth, we extract the following:
" I   was   the other afternoon in the
Park, and was looking at the ladies driving in their carriages.   1 take the liberty
lo give them a little advice.   A considerable number of them bail endeavored to 1

is more curious, the young ones  seemed
to  iiave  done   so even  more than the'
elderly   ones.   Now,   admitting that to
paint the face ho desirable, it ought, at!
leaHt,  to be well done, particularly when
the painting bus to stand the test of sun- ■
light.    I  never saw faces worse painted.

girls know as little about it  as savages,

The following brief description of some
of the marriage customs of the Australian "black" may be interesting to our
readers, more especially as this race is
rapidly becoming extinct and but
little reliable information can be gained
about tbem. owing to the aboriginal,
like the Emu and Kangaroo retiring towards the interior as the white-man advances. We are Indebted toa write:- now

The first duty of our young native man
was to obtain a wife, and this end was
attained without the weak sentiment of a
white man's courtship. An aboriginal
paid lor bis wife, bartering a sister or
cousin in exchange. We havo known a
man to barter bis grey-haired widowed
mother for a spouse.    It was considered
disgraceful for a man to have a wife (or

root of the evil, The letter from Mr.
Paul to which we have already adverted,
refers to the state of tbe closet attached
to the public schools. We are aware
that it has been the opinion of many of
riage. This arrangement, however, did
not always prevent love matches; but
where such transpired the proposal
always conies from the lady, as it
was considered bad taste for a man to
take such a liberty. The marriage ceremony always took place at night, and
wus of n simple nature, the most important part of tbe performance consisting
of the bride making a lire on her future
husband's hearth. A corroboree and
dance usually took place; but their

months past that the state of the
closets at present in use almost throughout the city, mny not unreasonably be
supposed to be at least one of the causes
which help to breed tbe germs which
when taken into tlie human system so
frequently cause death. What we would
suggest to our City Council is this—pass
a bye-law—the offenders against which
should be liable to a severe penalty—prohibiting the use of the old form ot closet
entirely. Make it compulsory to adopt
the dry earth system now used in so many

The Queensland blacks assert that on entering Paradise after death a man is
allotted an equal number of wives to
those he has obtained on earth—
judging the number by the quantity
of tears issuing from the eyes of the departed. A husband provided all animal

keep a good hut or "mia-mia" to shelter
them. A woman had to obtain roots

Otra Vancouver neighbors, as everyone
knows, intend to hold high-holiday on
Dominion Day.   The sports to be held
there,  judging by  the  published programme, ns well ns by hearsay, will be of,
a class perhaps never before witnessed :
by native born British Columbians.   It
gives us sincere pleasure to witness the
energy and "go" of those who have cast
anchor in the Terminal City. No wonder
that Vancouver is progressing by  leaps
and bounds, when we see the enterprise,
forethought,    nnd   " go-aheadedncss " j
which seem to distinguish one and all!
of her citizens.   That the friendly hospitality of Mayor Oppenheimer and   the
other members of the Invitation Committee, will be amply rewarded by fine
weather, crowds ot' visitors, and a "jolly"
good time generally, is our sincere wish.
\Tc are quite sure that those of our readers who have decided to witness or take
part in the festivities to be held there,
will be richly recompensed;  quite apart:
from the pleasure which they will receive j
in seeing the rapid growth of the baby '.
giant—a baby which bids fair before long,
to rival in point of population and busi-
ness volume many a renowned eity of the j

Acricn writing our article on "Diphtheria and Common Sense," we were
asked by Mr. Haslam, M. P. P., to sign a
Requisition requesting thc "Mayor to call
a public meeting for the purpose of discussing and devising the necessary sanitary measures for the city's welfare." We
hope such meeting will be attended en
masse by our fellow townsmen; more
especially as it has come to our notice
that already there have been cases of
parents removing themselves and their
"household godB"; arguing that as "times
are not so very brisk, it is hardly worth
while waiting until they mend, with the
very grave risk that by the time that happens, some oneor more of their little ones
may have been removed by death." We
have heard persons argue that we should
say nothing upon the subject or "we shall
create a panic"—our opinion is rather
'hat ii a panic is created,it will be fnr the
want of something being snid.

Ykstkuihv a plant was brought to our
olliee by a gentleman who told us he had
found it growing on the Esplanade. He,
like ourselves,had lived in other countries
where this pest, dreaded of stock-owners,
thrives apace, in Bpite of special laws
being enacted in order to render its destruction compulsory. We refer to the
famous Bathurst Burr of the Australian
colonies, The specimen which is lying liefore ub as we write, does not appear
to us to be Identical with the "Burr" as
we have seen it in the "bush" of Queensland and New South Wales, though the
resemblance is so strong as to lead us to
suppose that altered climatic conditions,
and difference of soil may have tended
somewhat to modify its original characteristics. This "burr" ruins wool by
working itself into thc fibres, until the
fleece must be torn to pieces in order to
separate the two. The spineB with which
the plant is also armed, work into the
flesh of the poor sheep, whilst the plant
itself, if not checked, iB of so rapid a
growth that it will under favorable conditions, speedily over-run large tracts of

A fashionable authoress of tbo last
century was Jlisn Fanny Burney,
whoso "Evelina" delighted Dr. John-
ton und Sir Joshua Reynolds, When
she hud becomo famous sho was the
guest of Mrs. Delauey, a venerable,
cultured lady, who lived at Windsor,
not far from thc ensile where George
III and Queen Charlotte resided. The
lung; and queen frequently called on
their neighbor, and .shy Miss Fanny at
such limes sought hor own room.
But ono afternoon sho and Mrs. Delanoy wero in thodrawing room, when
suddenly tho door opened. A large
man entered, who shut tho door without speaking. Tlio slur on his breast
revealed to Miss Burney thnt sho stood
in tho presenceof tho king. She retreated to the wall. Tho Icing advanced to his hostess and in a loud
whisper asked if Hint was Miss Burney.
Upon being assured that it was he
drew near and entered inlo conversation with her.
"But what— what—how wns it—how
camo you—how happened it—what—
what—what?" ho asked, in his usual
odd manner. Believing ho referred
lo "Evelina," sho replied that it had
heen written at odd hours for amusement.
"But your publishing—your printing— how wus tbnt—what—what?" he
asked; to which she answered: "I
thought, sir, it would look well in
print," at which lie wns vastly amused.
Soon she became familiar with tlio
presence of royalty, and on ouo oeca
sion hnd tho advantage of hearing his
majesty's criticisms on somo fumous
men. Vollniro lie pronounced n monster, and Shakespeare ho considered
littlo better than a fool.
"Was (hero over," cried out this
royal Solomon, "such stuff as great
part of Shakespeare)—only ono must
not say so. But what think you—what
what—is thero not sad stuff—what
- what—what?"
Fanny Burney ventured to assert
I bat the sad stuff was mixed witli many
excellencies; but he interrupted her lo
ejaculates
"Oh, I know it is not to bo said—but
it's true—only it's Shakespeare, and
nobody dares abuse him; ouo should
ho stoned for saying so."—Youth's
I Companion.
A Comfortable Mew of dime.
It will throw somo light on tbo inhabitants of Fernando doNorouhato
kuow how crime is looked upon by
Iho common peoplo in Brazil, andl
cannot heller show this than by relating a hit of personal experience.
1 had Iho misfortune at ono timo to
wound a Brazilian laborer—in his dignity. He (hereupon threatened to tako
my life, and was by no means careful
to keep his resolution to himself. As
the carrying out of such a determination on his part would havo caused
mo much inconvenience, I called upon
him in person, with tlio purpose, if
possible, of dissuading him.
I found that bo dill not look upon
tho condition of n criminal with dread
at all. Ho told mo frankly that, if ho
should stiecceccd iu carrying out bis
design, he know perfectly well what
liis career would bo. "At present,"
said he, "lam obliged to work for a
living; if I am sent to jail, my living
will ho furnished me, and I shall have
nothing to do. If you aro dead, thoro
will ho no ouo to appeal' against mo in
tho courts as my accuser, and in the
courso of u year or less I shall be sot
free, well rested, and witli tho reputation in the community of being a man
of courage."
In this caso I saw to it that he had
tho opportunity of enjoying tbo cov-
I'ted otium cum dignitato in.jatl without having lo commit a crime. But
in a country whero wrongdoing sets
so lightl, upon tbo conscience, and
where it sc frequently goes altogether
unpunished, tbo criminal class's large
as wo should expect.—John 0. Bran-

GOSSIP   ABOUT   MEN   AND   WOMEN.
Tlieir  Wauls, Ways   nnii   Weakuesse.   Bel
Forth ii,   rials, Language.
It isn't much wonder that young
women paint, powder and bleach,
when it is known that tbo average
young man is mora readily attracted
by these trick-; Hum by (rue womanly
graces. This is probably not true ul
tlie wifo hunter, but it certainly is of
tho young man who is merely desir
ous of being entertained.
The average young woman is font'
of being told that sho is good looking
that sho is of good form and carriage.
She takes it as a higher compliment
to bo considered attractive than to be
regarded ns sensible, intelligent and
practical.
Men like to preach down extravagance and style and dress; but she
who hangs her hair, hides a Uotli or
scar under a piece of court plaster,
who uses pretty glove-; and stockings.
trim slippers, perfumes, balms, cold
creams, linger curls and fancy notions
to increase hor charms is the woman
wbo is admired hy them all. Common sense nml ugliness may bo morally wholesome, bul they're not alluring, and art is liable to trample over
nature unadorned.
Young woman may deny it, yet tbe
fact remains that their chief object in
lifo is lo win husbands. It is their
nature, and it is right. If you ask a
married lady how she captured her
husband she will tell you she does not
know, and probably all that he can
tell is lhal it was her winning ways.
It is of little consequence bow'they
were brought together so that the attraction was mutual. If tho real man
and the real woman were the attractive features il were well; but if beau
ty, dress or fortune attracted tbem
their happiness is fnr from being assured.
A man's heart is ensnared hy a pretty  band,   nice   leetll,   a   round,   low
t voice, frank eyes, beautiful  hair; by
| tho way a girl   walks, talks, plays.
! rides; by  her gifts,   her smiles,  her
| amiability, good lasle,  gonerosity, or
j tho manner in   which she greets* fas-
! cinates or abuses  him.    She may not
j know  how she  won   him, but if she
j doesn't know how  to keep bim tho
best thing for her to do is to find out.
Thero nro  many   things we  know by
intuition; the rest have to be learned
by experience.   Conscious of her abilities and  inabilities as a  wife, a  wise
I woman will learn   to keep a  husband
| just as she learns how to  keep bouse.
Men aro susceptible, even  more so
than women.
There  is this (Inference: The aver
j ago man  inquires  whether ho  is in
; condition to marry,    'iho average woman doesn't.    If iho man pleases her
J fancy she is satisfied.    She may  not
j be ablo  lo  play any   part in tbo new
drama except to  hang upon  bis neck
' and coax to he petti d.
Such u wife is n btirdeu to any man.
. Sho doesn't undoislaiid him, neither
does sho know tbo chief constituents
! of a home.
Thc wile who lakes an interest in
home, in her husband's affairs, nnd
finds pleasure.in contributing to hi>
comfort mid happiness is a treasure ol
greater voluo Ihan a gold mine.
The wile wlio has no higher am
bilion than to ho kept alive is a pool
investment.
The average man has very littlo use
for a smart woman. Sho is full of
schemes, and is ambitious to shine. Her
disposition is anything but domestic,
and sho is not tho most genial com
pauion for a man whoso mind is taken
up with business affairs. Ho doesn't
caro how intelligent sho is, but lie
hasn't much use for her if sho is
smart.
Men liko to ho looked up at, depended on, quoted and referred to. An
ugly temper is a trial that fow women
aro ablo to endure. Tho only euro is
silence. You can't kiss a furious man;
it only makes him worse. Tho thing
to do is to keep still, let hiin cool, and
let tho matter drop. Ho will respect
your sense and como to terms of his
own accord.
Men must he taken us they arc, not
as they should ho; they improve under tho refining influence Of mutual
love, nnd ho is a wretched specimen
of humanity who cannot bo counted
on to shield his wife from Iho buffets
of tho world and ho an anchor when
youth and beauty havo proved unfaithful.
To bo born a woman is to bo born a
martyr, but tlio husband that is worth
wedding is worth keeping; and if a
littlo artifice, a pleasant smile, n contented heart, forbearance, devotion and
tact will hold him, by till means let
him bo held. —Pittsburg Commercial
Gazette.
A New Glslllll System.
A new system of canal construction
has been designed and recently patented by an Englishman. Tho object is
to do away entirely wilh tho necessity
for steam or liorso power in canal
trallic, and this end is sought to bo attained liy tlio creation of a current of
water strong enough to carry tho boats
along from point, to point. Mr. Pickerel has designed a doublo canal, nl
ono end of which is a screw, resembling tho propeller of a steamship. This
scrow, which is worked by steam
power, forces tho current in ono direction and causes it to return iu tho parallel division of the canal, tho direction
of tlio current being roversiblo at will.
By this arrangement all loss of water
is obviated and tho bed of tho canal is
kept clean. This current is, of course,
confined to each separate level of
canal, aud when locks intervene another current has to bo created.—New
Orleans Picayune.

AN   OLD   HUNTER'S   STORY.
Why  the  Cray lli-iii-tleil   Stranger   Hated
the Si«l,t of It Wolf Skin.
Ho was along iu years, as I saw by
his iron gray beard, and I saw upon
his goods tbat his name was Cross.
He was a tall man, and his build
showed that bo was a man of grout
muscular power. He examined the
wolfskin for a moment, then threw it
from bim, muttering a deep curse, the
meaning of which I did not under-
l stand. I privately asked my friend
what it meant.
"All!" said he, "he has a sad story
to tell"
My neighbor, who had only come as
a guide, went home iu the afternoon,
ami as .Mr.  Cross was somewhat ftt-
1 tigued by tbo journey from the settlement, wo did not leave the camp
lhat day.    I was very anxious lo hear
i Mr. O.'s story, and after supper wo sat
around lhe lire for some time, telling
about the moose uud the various
things that had happened during our
few days' stay ul Ibe head of Bog river,
which was the name of the locality
where we were stopping. After my
friend and I had exhausted ull our
tales, not forgetting thut awful night's
watching at lhe camp door, we asked
.Mr. Cross lo lei"* us something of his
, hunting exploits.
"1 have but one story," ho replied,
"thai will much interest you. but 1 do
not often tell it," uud I saw a leur
glistening in his eye.
1 told Tiiui we would bo pleased lo
hear his story, but diil not wish for
him lu call anything lo remembrance
that would cause him grief. Ho replied; "The wound has been healed
these many years, though often now
it seems to bleed afresh; but my story
: now I will tell.
"I was born iu the northern pari ul
Vermont.    My father was afannei.
I und as I was tbe only child, my fa
I ther gave mo tho homestead.   He died
■ quite young and tho caro of the farm
! devolved  on me.     My  mother soon
became Lame and unable lo do the
i work, and I resolved to marry. Dear
Louisa, a farmer's (laughter who
j lived hut a few miles away, was the
i ono to whom 1 gave my heart ami
[ bund, und, indeed, sho wns worthy ••:
1 tho lovo of nnv man. .My mother soon
I afler died, and wo laid her beside he;
: husband in tho churchyard.
"Two   children   were   born   to  us.
Tommy and   Louisa.     Wo   watched
] over them in tlieir infancy, and loved
them dearly.     Tommy  was  7,   nml
[ Louie, as wo called her" was 5. School
| was to commence Iho next Monday,
! and as they had never been to school,
| wo made arrangements to send them.
I The schoolllOUSO  was about one-half
a mile off, beyond  a  picco of  woods.
I went with them tho lirst and second
day, and met them ut nighl, ns thoy
wero afraid to go lb rough tho woods
alone; but Iho third day Tommy snid,
j 'Papa need not go with us any more.
J we can go alone.'    I granted their
■ wish, and soon saw them disappear,
going toward the schoolhouse, swinging their little dinner pails.
"They had been gone but a few
minutes. I had taken up my ax, and
was about commencing to cut some
wood. I heard littlo Tommy scream:
'0 dear, papal 0 dear, papal' burst
upon my cars; und at the samo moment I hoard little Lulie call momma,
mammal It is needless to say that 1
rushed lo I heir rescue, tightly grasping my ax. In one minute I saw two
! wolves tearing my dear children lo
, pieces. With nn unearthly yell, 1
rushed upon them.   Ouo left my child
■ and sprung upon me; he lay dead the
next instant, I sprang upon the other
that wus tearing the flesh from (he
cheek of my little girl; but he ran
swiftly away. Poor littlo Lulio was
dead; littlo Tommy raised bis torn
and  bloody  hand,  and  faintly said;
I 'O papa, I wish you como ford'   lt
; was his last words; in a fow moments
| ho breathed his last I look my dear
ones in my arms, and carried them to
j my house.    My wife was at tho barn.
1 I lay them on the bed; my wife soon
camo in. Sho looked upon her children, uttered a fearful wail of sorrow,
and fell almost lifeless upon tho floor]
Tbo shock was too much for her, nnd
: indeed, more than many mothers
could   havo  stood, and   within   ono
I month sho died a raving maniac. Sho
sleeps in Vermont besido her dear babes
sho loved so well." When bo bad finished his story thero was not a dry eye

The Canals of Mars.
As to tbo nature of tbo canals, it is
still moro dillicult to suggest any satisfactory explanation. Several hypotheses have been presented, none of
which appears entirely to meet the
caso. I have already remarked that
thero has not been lacking the suggestion that these curious streaks rcpre-
I sent tbo lines of actual artificial water
| courses on Mars. The straight and
j undeviating courso which they pursue
' might bo regarded ns lending some
degree of probability to such a view;
but the enormous scale on which they
exist Seems to compel tho rejection of
tho hypothesis. It is Iruo that, if wo
consider only tho influence of the
force of gravity on Mars, giants could
dwell upou that planet whoso
mechanical achievements might vastly
surpass tho greatest performances of
our engineers; for a body weighing a
ton on tho earth would weigh only
sovonty hundred and sixty pounds on
Mars, and, on the other hand, a man
ou Mars possessing relatively the
samo activity as one of us might bo
fifteen feet tall and strong in proportion. But, oven granting tho existence of such a race of Qoliaths on our
neighbor world, it is not conceivable
that they could havo constructed a
system of tremendous canals over half
tho stirfaco of their planet, or that
they would havo dono it if they could.
Tho canals of Mars aro enormously
disproportioned iu magnitude to the
most gigantic inhabitants that a duo
regard for tho law of gravitation
would suffer us to imagine there.—

The modern passenger brakeman is
uot an evolution, bill  n now creation.
He is nn object of admiration, while
bis predecessor of a quurler of a century  since wns an  object of  wonder
I antl  awe.     The  latter  was,   usually,
Iacollai'less, uncouth individual more
j or less given to plug tobacco and pro
I fanity.     Tlie Ixulguof his authority
I was a  red   handkerchief  tied  loosely
around his throat     Primarily, his occupation   v.iih,  upon  a given signal,
to llin''himself in fantaslic gyrations
around the iron brake wheel, uud his
contortions  upon the  front  platform
in   tbo discharge of  Ilis duty were at
l onco the wonder and  tho admiration
i of the station louiijrei's of that period.
l He  was  usually   distinguished by  a
tight fitting cap with a peaked visor.
I His hands were  big and   coarso and
j calloused.     There    were   invariably
fp'imy circlesuround his eyes.    When
io  called out  the  name of a station
i to tho occupants of tho front car the
peoplo  in  the  rear end  ofthe train
i could hear  bis voice, but  the nearest
I passenger could not tell what he said.
When  ho assisted u lady to alight he
i helped her down from tho high steps as
though  sho was so much   baled nay.
Ilis regard for baskotscontaining eggs
or crockery amounted to absolute eon
tempt.    Ilis  business was to help run
tho train.
Tho passenger brakeman of the pre
J sent is n symphony in blue broadcloth
i and brass  buttons,    lie is at once or
i namental and   useful.    The old  iron
I brake wheel still   looms up on the
front platform, but he rarely finds it
necessary to touch it.    He is iho oh
ject of envy and admiration  to tho
small  boy at the Queen Anne station
houses.    It is his duty nnd pleasure to
cultivate a graceful carriage, and  the
; sharp swing of   the   Kustluke coach
around a curve, which causes farmer
Wayback and the woman wilh a green
veil on   her  bonnet to clutch  the seat
in  terror, only  provokes from  him a
sweet, sad smile of sympathetic commiseration.   He is u little less than u
modern  Beau Brummel hi his attention   lo   the  ladies and    school girls
temporarily   intrusted    to   his  care,
while maintaining au air of condescending   dignity  toward   tho   men.
When lie displays opposite characteristics it is an evidence that his training has been defective or he has mis
taken his occupation.

Tin, Jiiilmnijnli nt riomo.
Ho is u charming old gentleman,
very kind, nnd deservedly popular in
Benares, but ho is keenly sensitive lo
his failing sigh!, 'I'ho spacious room
into which his guests aro ushered has
on such occasions but littlo furniture--
little more than an Indian carpel and
a few tallies in the corners, besides on
ono side two rows of chairs to accom
module all tho guests and retainers in
vited. In tho front row, among the
guests, sits the inaharajali and his
adopted son and grandson, nil of them
magnificently dressed; just behind i.
a whole retinue of attendants, und the
proceedings aro eyed wilh interest by
the servants, wlio stand round at the
sides. The otherwise empty center of
tho room is occupied by a royal pigeon
dyed crimson, with u hlnek (ail, which
struts aboulou u small (abloand looks
very self import.ml. und the Only Other
disputant of lhe Iloor is a hookah lazily
puffed al by the venerable ho^t. if
once Iho luckless bird should venture
to stir off his rest, tho commotion
among the attendants is that of stern
und helpless despair.
Presently three musicians squat (low :i
beforo tho assembly, and play several
plaintive dines on Hindoo guitars and
liddles, together with plausible varia
lions (for the benefit of English stran
gers) of "We Won't Go Homo Till
Morning," "John Peel" and other national melodies. When they have finished two dancing girls come in anil
perform many patient maneuvers.
Hindoos never dance themselves unless quite carried away in tho worship
of tbeir idols; they leave il ull to these
professionals, wlio gesticulate mildly,
and twirl, and sing, as they hopo best
to plcaso their gracious patrons. They
aro brilliantly dressed in purple and
gold, or green and silver, with noso
rings, bangles and earrings, and their
songs are accompanied by a small
band which stands behind them and
enlivens theirnudieiico with the strains
of guitars and a drum. On rising to
leave the old niaharajah decorates each
of his guests by throwing over their
shoulders a ringlet of red nnd gold
cord, and in lhese splendid ornaments I
they aro conducted to tho door of the
palaco and expected lo ride out of tho
grounds ou the iiiaharajnh's elephants.
The elephant ride is a high mark of
oriental favor. - Evelyn's "Cecil's

Collis  .Irownc's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself,   not 1,nly in Hindoslan,   but all over
i lhc East.     As a remedy of general  utility,
I we  much  question   whether a better is im-
I ported  Into the country,   and  we  shall he
Iglnd 10 hear of Itt finding a place in every
I Anglo-Indian home.    The other brands,   we
are  happy to say, are now relegated  to  lhe
native  bazaars, and judging from Iheir salet
wc   fancy   iheir   sojurn   Ihere   will he but
1 evanescent.    We   could  multiply  instances
Infinitum  of  the   extraordinary   efficacy of
I Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhi-r,
and   2nd    Dysentery     Spasms,     Cramps,
Neuralgia, ihe Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as     general  Sedative,   thai   have  occurred
undwt our personal observation during ninny
i years.   In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
I thc more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
! have witnessed its controlling  power.     We
j have  never used  tiny other foim   of   this I
I medicine  than  Collis Browne's, from a firm
! conviction   that it is decidedly the best, and
I also from a sense ol duty we owe to the pro] ]
fession   and   the   public,   as   we are ofthe
i opinion  tnat the substitution of any other
j ihan Collis Browne's, is A DELIBER.V'E

On Thursday evening, little Louise
Marliicuf, the eight-year-old daughter of
Mons. Louis Martxcuf, of tbe Poodle
I loir, who is a pupil atSt. Ann's Convent,
met with an accident which was almost
attended witli fatal consequences. The
little girl, with several companions, was
playing 'upon the hoard whloh protected
anyone from walking into the pit for tlie
passage of .1 small elevator or dumb
waiter, when the board broke and the
little one fell to the bottom of the well, a
distance of about fifty feet. Both oi her
arms were fractured, and her throat was
badly cut by striking the ragged edge of
tlie "broken boards as she fell. By a
merciful providence Iter lifo was .-pared,
and it is not thought that ber in juries,
although tbey are very painful, will be
serious in tbeir consequences. Dr. Davie
and Dr. Holmckcn were in attendance
upon the little sufferer within half an
hour after the accident, and under their
skilful care she is now doing as well as
could be expected.—Colonist.

lumber, and that the defendant in company with another Chinaman named
Mak Yeu, endeavored to take away some
planks, and that when he tried to stop
them they pushed him down a hill, held
him on the ground by his queue and then
the defendant extraeted tlie $200 in
notes from his pocket, fearing the pocket
in doing so. The defendant said if you
go as a witness against me I will kill you
with a pistol. The defendant belongs to
tlie order of Chee Kung Long. I saw the
money in the bands of the prisoner.
At "this juncture I mcthing was said
abovt the witness fearing violence at the
hands of tbe Chee Kung Long Society,
and his Lordship directed Mr. J. F*.
Gardiner, the interpreter, to inform
everyone in the court that in case of any
of the witnesses being assaulted the
guilty parties would be made to suffer
lor it.
Ah Sti'f was then called, but Mr.
Drake objectc". .0 his being sworn on tlie
same document, as thc laBt witness. Considerable discussion ensued between the
lawyers for the prosecution nntl defence,
and Mr. D .ike managed to work in a
yarn about a certain Clerk of the Court
in Car'boo, who understood that it was
necessary to break a saucer over the witnesses' head and promptly did so with
beneficial effect. Ultimately he waived
Ids objection and consented to the witness
being sworn by writing his name on a
piece of paper that was afterwards
horned.
Ah Suit testified that Frank Little,
Superintendent of thc Union .Mines, had
given him special permission to use the
lumber.
Chas. Welling, miner at Comox, testified that he saw Sing pushed down tbe
hill.
This ended the case for tho prosecution,
J. W. Frazer, sworn, said 1 hauled Ihe
lumber to the Union Mines, it was for
the Chinamen. They generally packed
the load away from the wagon. On this
particular occasion I heard a row and
; ayed to see it. I saw two or three
Chinamen scuffling at the foot of the hill,
There were possibly forty or fifty Chinamen standing around. I did not see any
u ttempt at robbery.
Mak Yen, sworn, testified, that he had
u row with Sing over a plank. Sing
struck me.   I didn't strike him at all.
John Grant, teamster, said he had
orders to deliver the lumber to the
Chinamen.
After hearing the Counsel for the defence and prosecution His Lordship delivered his sentence of two years imprisonment.
