Grand   Duke's   Example.
No danger has been too greal for
lhe iroops to encounter and no fatigue
too severe for them, ln ibis work the
soldiers  and   others  have   1 n   shown
examples by the Grand Duke of Aosta
who was praised on all Bides. Tho
Duke is pronounced to be a worthy
descendant of ibe late King Humbert,
who, in 1MI went to the assistance
of the sufferers ironi the cholera epidemic, visiting the patients in the
hospitals and in some cases remaining by the bedside of the dying until
the end.

Message From Observatory.
Rome, April  11.    Prof. Mattucci, in
charge of the observatory at  Mount
Vesuvius,  telegraphed   from  there  at
1  o'clock  this morning as  follows:
"Thi ol mysell and the car-
i ��� in  the ohs irvatory  was  very
if throughout   the   night.   Dp   to
'o'clock   this   morning   the   ob-
....     ,     iu   d.-n a
show.!--   of   sand   but   the  volcano   is
now calmer. The sesimic Instruments
show quieter records than yesterday.
I shall remain here as long as possible.   If  my  words  could  inlluence  the
situation they would be words of encouragement ami sympathy, for I am
mosl   confident     that   Vesuvius     will
soon  return to its normal condition."
Thousands of Fugitives.
Rome, April 1.���The Vila today published a despatch from Castellamare,
timed 3:30 ihis morning, saying that
during the night trains arrived there
with thousands of fugitives from1
Torre Dell Creco. These people were
in a pitiable state covered with ashes
and badly panic stricken. They said
that Torre Dell Creco was visited by
a terrible storm accompanied by the
falling of boiling water, and stones
the size of eggs. The houses began
falling down and the population fled.
The municipality of Castellamare Is
succoring  the fugitives.
Tempest  Resumes.
As the despatch was tiled at Castellamare the volcanic tempest had  recommenced at Torre Annunziata.
The Gionale do Italia this afternoon
published   a   despatch     from     Naples
questioning the magnitude of the disasters at   Sarno nnd  Sangeranno.
New York, April 11.���The Times prints an account today of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, by
F. Marion Crawford, the American novelist. His
despatch is dated San Agnelle, Bay of Naples,
After giving briefly a general sketch of the
eruption, he say : "Yesterday, (Monday) I drove
through Torre I Lnnu trziata to the point where the
main stream of h'.v. stretched on Sunday. The- lava
carried'.: ���    of burned stone and sulphur on
its surface like <l Id and nothi
visible toward I.      '     , endless masses of
dark scorai bro] here by the gr^r
curling smoke of . ulphur.
"At this poi    wi   'each id a great stone pine tree
which, torn up bj r ots and turned to black charcoal, stuck out of the mass at a sharp angle. The air
was almost unbreathable. The heat intense. The
faces of the people who crowded upon the edge of the
arrested stream expressed terror or exhaustion from
recent panic.
" When the stream of fire threatened Boscoere-
ease soldiers dug a wide ditch across its path and
threw up a formidable entrenchment in the hope of
diverting its course but every effort was useless.
"The molten stone advanced like a collossal serpent of fire, turning its head to the right and left as
a snake does, but keeping its general direction towards the fated towns.
"It was not till it reached the first house, sending up greal sta i Irs of sparks, that the people finally
fled for their lives, taking such belongings as they
could in their arms or pile upon the carts.
" I saw men, women and children, and infants
whose mothers carried them at the breast or in their
aprons. Dogs too, and cats were on thc carts and
sometimes even chickens tied together by the legs,
and piles of mattresses and pillows, and shapeless
bundles of clothes all white with dust under the lurid
"I saw a woman lying on her back across a cart,
ghastly white and if not dead with fear, heat and
suffering, certainly almost dead. We ourselves could
hardly breathe.
'' At the moment of writing in Soretino at 2 p. m.
I can see nothing of Naples or Vesuvius or even of
Ischia (an island in the Bay of Naples) 30 miles to the
west of the volcano, for all is hidden by a lurid curtain which is not affected by the fresh easterly breeze.
" The ashes are a fine dark gray dust and are
thick in my garden walks and on the terrace and on
all the plants. Even at a distance of 50 yards there
is a slight film in the air."

William Spring was found lying in
a doorway on Front streel last nigh!
shouting at the top of his voice lo
the alarm and disturbance of the en-
iii" neighborhood. He was arrested
by Detective Bradshaw, and this
morning fined $L'."i0 and costs by
Magistrate  Corbould.
William had imbibed too freely
and the liquor appeared to have the
effect of concentrating all his energy
in his vocal organs. The neighbors
were aroused by a series of blood
curdling yells, which gave some thtv
impression that murder was being
committed, and others, that one was
drowning. By the time the officer arrived a very large number of citizens
bad gathered.
This morning he explained that he
had heen working in the district and
that he was unable to obtain a drink
without coming to town, and that
consequently he felt compelled to pay
the Royal City n visit. He stated that
he had over $100 due him for wages,
and that if he could he let down wllh
a light fine he would appreciate the
"kindness" very much. His Worship
accommodated   him.

Beginning   to   Appreciate   Burns.
ln ease O'Brien does for Berger,
he will nexl stack up against Tommy Burns, who is beginning; to be
looked upon as a "comer." O'Brien
probably has no misgivings whatever
about this match, as he mei Burns at
Milwaukee something over n year
ago, when lie had no trouble in outpointing the Detroit lad. Burns
avers, however, that times hitve
changed since then, thai he has improved wonderfully and that he will
give Foxy Jack the fight of his life
when Ihey next meet In the ring.
There ia no denying that Burns has
come on rapidly within the pasl six
months. He is beginning lo receive
due credit for his defeat ot Marvin
Hurl, which al first was looked upon
as something of a fluke, but which
is now regarded as having beeu due
oi tlie little fellow's remarkable
quickness and superior generalship.

Value  of   Keeping   a   Diary.
'fhe author of the serial in Cornhill
From     a   Collegs     Window,"     who
nuns mn  to be  Arthur  Benson,  has
seme Interesting tilings to say as to
lbe value of keeping a diary:
A wylter has to pass through a certain apprenticeship; and the cure for
ihis natural vagueness is to choose
small, precise subjects, to say all ihat
we have In our minds about them, and
to stop when we have finished: not
to aim at line writing, but at. definite-
ness and clearness. I suppose people
arrive at their end in different ways;
but my own behalf is that in writing
one cannot do much by correction.
I believe that the beat way to arrive j
al lucidity is hy incessant practice;
we musi be content to abandon and
sacrifice faulty manuscripts altogether; we ought, not to fret over and
rewrite them. The two things that
I have found to bo of Infinite service
to myself, in learning to write prose,
have been keeping a full diary and
writing poetry. Tl;' habit of dlnriz-
ing is easily acquired, und as soon
as ii becomes habitual, the day is
no more complete without it than It
is complete without, a cold bath and
regular  meals.   People  sny  thai   they \
have  no  time   to   keep  a diary;   but
they   would   never  sny  that   they   hail
not   tlmi   to  lake   a   bath  or  to  have
their meals.   A diary tteed not be a
dreary chronic!" of one's movements;
il should aim rather at giving a
Ballon! account ol some partlculai
episode, ;i walk, a book, a conversation, li is a practice wblch brings
Us own reward lu many ways; ii  is
a singularly delightful thing lo look
at old diaries, lo ave how one was
occupied, say, ten years ago; what
one wns reading,  the people one wus
meeting, one's earlier point or view.
And then, further, as I have said, ii
has an Immense advantage of developing style; rbe subjects are

The annual report of the minister

British Columbia penitentiary is located here a few; extracts and In-
ferences from the reporl may he of
Interest to our readers.
There were In custody on the 30th
ol June last 1,367 prisoners. The
number in each prison is given, and
by taking approximately iho population ol ihe Dominion and Iho penitentiary districts we are enabled to draw
comparison as to the relative proportion of convicts In  British Columbia.
Assuming the population ot lbe
Dominion as 6,000,000 modi up as
follows, vi/: omaiio _,300,p00, Quebec l 700,000, the Maritime provinces
1,000,000, Manitoba and now provinces 700,000, nnd British Columbia
300,000, we find tlmi we have mon'
than om due share of ihe criminal
ela.ss. The following table will enable the reader to make his own comparison lind draw his own conclusion-:

certalnlj a high percentage of
criminals to iis credit, .0163,���one
and three-fourths times ihe number
in Manitoba, twice the number ln
tlie Maritime provinces and over
twice iln' number in Quebec or Ontario. \\'e have ovei- ten per cent, of
the prison population of Canada,
which should mean thai, of a population of 6,000,000 tor tin' Dominion,
we should have liuo.iiiiu people to
jus! ity     this    large     percentage.     Kx-
plan&ttons heretofore offered on this
point do not seem to hold good, as
any reason assigned might be applied
with equal or greater force to Manitoba. The figures nre slartling aTld
should awaken serious thought for
the  future of our  province.

Mr. Bryan seems to enroll himself as
more of a believer in the benefits of
competition than of legal ami enforced co-operation.
Mr. Bryan's present attitude, as revealed in this article, does not fuiida-

that new conditions "make necessary

than the urban agitator, and the
farmer is not as receptive to socialism

Scientifically bumming birds are "tro-
chllUlae," and those who make a special study of them are "troehllldlsts,"
although the birds are not identical
with tho old Greek "troehllus," or "runner," bird, which, according to Herodotus, entered the jaws of the sleeping crocodile and obliged Its big friend
by picking leeches from his throat. The
Spanish name for the bumming bird Is
"loininejo," meaning a third of a drm
and referring, of course, to the bird's
minuteness. But the prettiest nan..
nre those, such as the French "froufrou," which refer to the humming
noise sometimes produced by the almost Incredibly rapid vibration of the
wings. "Purring with her wings" Is
tho expression of Thomas Morton
[10821, the llrsi English writer to mention ibe bumming bird.

It must be admitted that some of
the best work that bus lived has been
done by Indolent men. This is especially true ns regards literature. The
finest description of a sunrise was
written by the poet Thomson In bed.
Coleridge was one of the most Indolent
of men, yet bis work Is. of lis kind,
U-approached, one of the most Important Improvements in the steam engine was due to the Indolence of James
Watt. Many other examples might lie
quoted; but, as a general rule, il is
fairly correct to say that work which
li tho outcome of meditation or prolonged observation Is best performed
by people whose natural Indolence
makes them careless of the strife and
bustle in whieh an active temperament
would tend to immerse them.���Pea*-
