Wm. Manson vs. Mary Howieson���This
case was heard In the Supreme Court
yesterday. The facts of the case are ,
that on March 35th, 1801, the plaintiff!
entered into an agreement with Mrs.
Mary Howieson, the defendant, for the
purchase of 45 acres In Lot 11, Group 2,
New Westminster Citv, the consideration
being $13,000,     Negotiations were con-,
I ducted through Mr. F.  tl.  Turner, real
| estate agent here. The property originally  belonged  to Mr. Donahue, of San
i Francisco, now deceased, and was sold
for taxes   to   tho   defendant.     At that
! time the value of property was at a low
ebb. But Ihe legal representatives of
Donahue, upon hearing ot the great increase of values in ism and the sale
aforesaid by the defendant to plaintiff,
ut once brought suit for recovery of ���
; possession, and a lis pendens wus duly
filed against tho property, thus shutting the plaintiff out from handling bis
| purchase, lu consequence of the In-
ablllty of Mrs. Howieson to give Man-
son a   clear   title   during   the   period of

Mrs, Margaret Henderson, accompanied by her son, W. Hrown, of Laugside,
Kinloss township, Bruce county, Ont.,
arrived iu this city last week. Mrs.
Henderson is over 91 years of age nnd
Mr. Hrown is 07 yearsof age. Mrs.llen-
derson's father was James Harvey, of
tbe parish of Tarbolton, in Ayrshire,
Scotland, llo was a schoolmaster and
teacher of music. Living contemporary
with Burns, and their residence being
only a couple of miles apart, these two
were well acquainted, and James llnr-
voy is said to have given the famous
poet   lessons   In   vocal   music.      In  Mrs.
Henderson's younger days she was personally acquainted with   many  of tho
characters referred lo in IIIII'll8' poems.
She says that she bus watched tlie fame
of Burns rise, ami cun remember tbe
time when be wus bill  little   thought of;
hull she desired it would   have I n easy
for her to have got possession of lull li y
of his letters und old papers. Mrs. Henderson has been married three times,
twice iu Scotland and once in Canada.
She came to this enuniry in 18B3, and
lias lived in Bruco county ever since.

When Mr. MeFurland's letter was read
in council all the members of theFinance
committee acknowledged an indiscretion,
and asked that new tenders be called for
with one execution. Aid. Salsbury considered that his integrity bad been questioned, and promptly resigned. The
chairman of the Finance committee succeeded In creating a somewhat dramatic
scene in tbo Council chamber, and received many assurances from bis confreres that tliey still continued to entertain the highest opinion of his integrity.
Hut he was hi his mettle and refused to
be consoled.   There the matter stands.

happen occasionally even though it is at
a prayer meeting. Some weeks ago dnr-'
ing a prayer service in one of our well
known oity churches, after a short and
very impressive peroration, the pastor
asked all to how their beads while a few
of the brethren led in prayer. One lady
who bowed ber bead very fervently did

too close lo the lady's bead who happened to be sitting just In front, but as \
the bonnet became entangled Iii the hair

affairs and tried without  attracting attention to get the hair and  bonnet separated and al   the   siiiue   lime   to  keep
from giving vent to a   hearty   laugh as
ihe  comical  sideo presented itself   to
them.    The more they tried the worse it
became, and although in sheer desperation thoy would make a strong  jerk It
had no effect as the bonnet was too well
fastened lind the hair wus  not   "coming
out" just then.    To make things  worse

Duty on Nets a Mistake.
A representative of tbe Vancouver
Nans-Advertiser called upon Mr. Hell-
Irving of liell-lrving A Co.. Monday with
a view of questioning blm respecting the
rumored duly of ,'lo per cent, on salmon
nets. Mr. Boll-Irving informed him that
this was a mistake. Immediately upon
hearing the report he despatched the
following telegram on Ihe I lib Inst, to
Sir ('has. Tupper, Mlnlstor of Marino
and Fisheries: "Please wire if true or
not, lisliing nets dutiable :i(l percent."
The reply dated the same day reads:
"It is not so Intended, pay under protest
and the duty will be duly remitted."
Such a duty would have had a bad effect
upon the salmon industry Undoubtedly
and the feregoiiig is satisfactory accordingly.

reference to tlie power of the city to sell

act of incorporation   tbe city is given |
power to sell  lands   for   overdue   taxes, I
but in the special act there  is   no  such

Is power given to pass a by-law providing

The Council  of   the   Hoard  of  Trade
held u special meeting  yesterday   after-

, It was shown Unit while both tbe Canadian and United States Tariff Hills pro-

Canadian tariff comes into force imtnod-

The Province, a new weekly journal
Circulated m different parts of the Province, and which takes an un partisan
view of the political arena, has the following:
"It is tho general   opinion   that   the
(iovornment will   have   a   walk-over at
the coming elections, and although the
unexpected frequently happens in  poll-
tics, as in othor  matters,   we  shall   be
very surprised in   this   Instance if the
general opinion was wrong.    Of   course
the Opposition may have somo masterly
plan of campaign  in  the back-ground,
some subtle scheme   for   sqbduing   the
hearts of men in reserve,  but we very
much doubt It, for   so   far   they  have
given no qualities save disorganization
and   weakness.     Disorganization  is no
passport to public confidence and weakness never yot won public esteem. There
is no denying the fact that the Government, although   wo   consider it highly
censurable in the matter of the Nakusp
& Slocan Railway,  is   possessed of the
qualities  which  the   Opposition   so lamentably lacks.    It has   been   up and
doing   whilo   its   opponents   have been
asleep, and credit, politically  speaking,
is due to it on that score.     Seeing then
that there is practically no party in tho
Houso worthy of being dignified by tiie
title of "Opposition," wo are compelled
lo analyze tbe forces which go to make
Up the Independent section of the House,
We lind no greater evidence of cohesion
and   solidarity   In    their    ranks   than
amongst those of the Opposition.   They
do not appear to have anv recognized
leader nor  to   possess   those   qualities
which entitle them to be called a party
at all.    Hut none   the   less  should we
like to see their numbers   strongly reinforced at the coming election, as we believe the Independent platform Is a sound
one, the only one   in   fact upon  which
now aud  in   a   political   sense,  untried
men can take a solid  stand.     We   hopo
surprises may be in  store for us; that
several seats may bo   contested   in the
Independent interest by men  who may
be relied on to exercise without fear and
without hesitation their judgment in any
direction  which may seem to thom to
be for the good of  tbe  Province; who
will support whichever party may be in
power   entirely   regardless   of   results,
whenever tbey consider tbey   can conscientiously do so, and  who will on the
ether hand oppose   all   measures with
the same temerity if tbey  think it their
duty to do so.   We   are aware that wo
lay ourselves open to the criticism that
jtich an entirely Independent attitude
is we allude to hardly conies within tlie
jcope of duties prescribed  by  the term
"practical polities," but we maintain all
tbe same, even if the ideal be somewhat
difficult of attainment, that there can be
ao harm in aiming at  il.     Names   have
been mentioned to us of  men   who  may
possibly stand at the next  election   who
we believe, fully come  to  the  standard
nre have described and although   we arc
not at liberty to mention  tbem  publicly:
we can assure tbem of our beartlesl cooperation and  success   In   the  event  of
their coining forward to the polls.     The
House   wants   strengthening   badly   in
more   ways  than   one   and   the   public
would certainly be wise iu seeking for!
BUtslde elements wherewith lo  repair it1
rather than In trusting to those  within
its precincts  which   have  already   been
lasted und  iii  many cases found wanting."
We feal confident thut the Province will
ihange its views on tbe Nakusp _ Slocan
railway deal after the Iloynl Commission
bring In their report. At any rate judgment should be suspended for the pro-
lent. In its desire for now blood in the
Mouse, we can assure tbem that there
will not be may of the obstructionists

Mr. Joseph Hunter, M.P.p., has a card

candidature of the district of Comox.
The Oppositionists are endeavoring to
run a man in Opposition to Mr. Hunter
under the guise of a Government candidate.
A very interesting meeting of the
friends of the Government was held on
Friday last. Tbe question of choosing a
candidate to represent the city was discussed at some length. Amongst the
names mentioned were Hon. Theo.Davle,
Judge Hole, T. C. Atkinson, A. J. McColl, Q.C., Alex. Ewen, and E. A. Jenns.
The meeting after numerous speeches,
etc., was adjourned until last night,
when the choosing of a candidate will be
gone Into.
It is strange that people of the name
of Kitchen should be political nuisances
everywhere. Here is a bit from the
lira nt ford Expositor: "The Expositor
will give a valuable chromo to the man
who can show that S. (3. Kitchen could
do anything for the fanners of North
Brant that W. B. Wood bus not done, or
cannot do, it will givo two chromos,

can give any really good reason why Mr.
Kitchen should be iu the field at all."

Mark Twain in Trouble.
New York, April 18.���Tbo assignment
of Samuel _, Clemens, "Mark Twain,"
and liis partner Frederick J. Hall, who
comprise the firm of Charles L. Webster
&C, book publishers, at No. 6 Fifth
avenue, was filed in the County Clerk's
oflice to-dav. The assignment was without preference, and the deed was signed
by Mr. Clemens in this city. The assignment caused great surprise, and is stated
to bo ou account of the failure of tbo
firm to obtain money which tliey confidently expected to get to meet obligations
just maturing. Tbo business was started
on May 1, 1884, by Charles L. Webster
and his wife's uncle, Samuel L. Clemens.
The linn started to publish the works
of Mark Twain, but afterwards added
the works of other authors, being principally subscription books. They also
bandied miscellaneous books. Mr. Webster withdrew from the firm in 1888, and
died in 18(13. Frederick J. Hill succeeded
Mr. Webster In the firm upon the hitter's
withdrawal, and has sinco continued as
tbe active manager of the linn's business. In 18111 tbe firm began the publication of the "Library of American
Literature," into wliich it was understood they put 8100,000, and which tied
up part of their capital. They sold this
part of their business In October, 1883,
to Mr. Evarts Benjamin. Early In January last Mr. Hall Btatod that the firm
sold part of their subscription book business, continuing to have subscription

It Is a strango fact that tho averago
man can be   so  oasily   fooled.     If you
have ever heard a confidence man  talk,
oh! how nice they can lay   it down, and
before you are aware of It you  are converted to their way of thinking.   Next
to the confidence man  comes the book
fiend, as he is generally called.    Ho will
talk you into the belief that he has the
greatest book ever published and while
he is convincing vou   of   this   fact,   be
quietly insinuates that it   is   for your
good and not for his own financial benefit
that he is talking.   There are politicians
who work more or less along these lines
and as an illustration of  this   kind we
will tako the   member   for New Westminster.    He poses as the workingman's
friend, and when   speaking he always
endeavors io impress his audience  with
tbe fact that lie is "Saintly Hrown" and
his opponent is everything that is bad.

Mr Hrown to make in  addition  to his

and he at one time in  addition   to tbo
abovo amounts, received 81,000 a year as

he has been   connsidering?     We   havo
sufficient confidence in the people of this

Tbo ships belong to the same owners,

there was naturally much speculation
among mariners in the metropolis as to
the outcome of tho race around the
world. The Barrowdale, like tho Bon-
mero, was heavily laden, but on meeting
with an accident was obliged to discontinue the race. Tlie lienmore had previously mado tho round trip between

Hare   the   Vflelders   of   Feminine   l'��ni
Fallen Into a Rut?
A new novel by a new woman who
modestly hides her identity under the
nom de plume "Iota," has appeared in
London. It is called ''The Yellow
Aster" and follows the beaten path of
the latter-day woman novelist. It is on
the same general line as the work of
John Oliver Hobbes and Sarah Grand���
which is an excellent way medicinally.
The literary work of these women and
others of their school is, of course, su
perior to that of the old-time woman
novelists whose heroines wept over sentimental woes for three volumes and
married tho curate at the end. The
later writers are brilliant and keen. |
They have the power to tell strong
stories, the ability to tell them well, and
the old cry that humor is conspicuous
by its absence in their work cannot be
raised. But, at the same time, they
possess a sort of morbid liking for the
spiritual dissecting-room, nnd that is a
place where the average man and woman
does not care to go. Intro-spection, I
soul-dissection, revelations of feminine
faults, foibles and follies will grow as
wearisome in timo as the description of
heroine's hair and the troubled course
of her lovo affairs used to be. By and
by, when nil the morbid souls and unbridled, untrained minds havo been (lis
BOOted, the woman question will have
become uninteresting, and the woman
writer will be again at a discount.
There is a happy medium between the
young woman whose only charms wero I
her eyes and her woes and the young
Woman whoso whole existence is a pro- |
test against something. And it will lie
rather pleasant for tho reading publio j
when some of the women who know how
to write find it worth while to celebrate
one of theso happy mediums.
A Typical Aluurican.
Two young fellows walked up Main
street last Saturday night. They had
been talking about skill at games of
cards. One of them allowed that he
could play any game of which the late
Mr. Hoyle was cognizant. The other
was equally sure of his mastery of the
"I will play you any game you choose
for money, marbles orohalk," said the
tall one.

1'What'll we play?" asked the tall one.
"Well, we'll go up here and play a
game of pedro."
"No. I ain't very good at pedro."
"Let's have a game of casino, then,"
"I never did like that game."
"I'll play you poker."
"That's a game I never play,"
"The counting is too i_uob;t>otl>er,"
"Don't know that game,"
"Hearts is no good."
By this "time the short "one waa disgusted.   Ho stopped and said :
"Well, you dog-gasted chump, what
will you play after all your bluffing?"
The tall one hesitated for a minute.
Then he said :

Street  Venders in Japan.
The horse is practically unknown in
Japan, and the peddlers must carry
their wares on their shoulders. Those
who sell food carry it about in square
boxes slung over each shoulder on a
large pole. In one box is usually a charcoal furnace, with a pot of sou]) over it.
The other contains a sort of curd, made
f, of beans, which is sold in square slices
that look like clear salt pork. On selling
a slice the dealer transfixes it with a
stick and besmears it with the soup,
which is red. and so thick as to form a
paste. The vender of sweetmeats often
carries his goods on his head in a box
surmounted with paper flowers. He
beats a drum as he goes along, and the
children, who seem always happy and
smiling in Japan, gather about him.
The toy peddler has a little cart (every
thing in Japan is little) covered with
paper windmills or other paper decora
In the country districts no other street
merchant is so frequently seen as the
lamp dealer, who has a box of lamps
over one shoulder and one of chimneys
over the other. He stops everywhere,
and it would seem that the Japanese,
like Goethe, want "Mehr licht." Closo at
this dealer's heels follows the kerosene1
merchant, with can and measure.���

_ NotoI Experiment in Mid-Ooean��� Flth
Life in the Deep Waters Mot Without
Hanger -Some Peculiarly Interesting
Physical Conditions.
The peculiar physical conditions of the
deep seas says Sidney J. Hickson in the
Fauna of the Deep Sea, may be briefly
stated to be these; It is absolutely dark
so far as actual sunlight is concerned,
the temperature is only a few degrees
above freezing point, the pressure is
enormous, there is little or no "movement
of tho water, the bottom is composed of
a uniform fino Boft mud, and there is
no plaut lifo. All of these physical
conditions we can appreciate except the
enormous pressure. Absolute darkness
wo know, the temperature of the deep
seas is not an extraordinary one, tlie
absence of movement in the water and
the fine soft mud are conditions that we
oan readily appreciate; but the pressure
is far greater than anything wo can
realize. At a depth or S3,500 fathoms
the pressure is, roughly speaking, two
and a half tons per square inch���that is
to say, several tunes greater lb: 11 the
pressure exerted by the steam upon tho
piston of our most powerful engines.
Or, to put the matter in other words, the
pressure per square inch upon the body
of every animal that lives at the bottom
of the Atlantic ' Icean is about twenty-
live times greater than the pressure that
will drive a railway train.
A most beautiful experiment to illustrate tlie enormous force of this pressure
wns made during the voyage of II. M. S.
Challenger. 1 give tbo description of it
in the words of the late Prof. Moseley:
"Mr. Buchanan hermetically sealed up
at both ends a thick glass tube full of
air, several inches in length. He wrapped this sealed tube in flunnel, and placed it, so wrapped up, in a wide copper
tube, which was one of those used to
protect the deep-sea thermometers when
sent down witli the sounding apparatus.
This copper tube was closed by a lid fitting loosely and with holes in it and the
copper bottom of the tube similarly had
holes bored through it. The water thus
had free access to the interior of the tube
when it was lowered into the sea, and
the tube was necessarily constructed
with that object in view, in order that
in its ordinary use the water should
freely reach the contained thermometer. 1
The copper case containing thu sealed
glass tube was sent down to a depth of
two thousand fathoms and drawn up
again,    it was then found that the cop- i
Eer wall of tho case was bulged and
ent inward opposite tho place where
the glass tube lay, just as if it had
been crumpled inward by being violently squeezed. The glass tube itself,
within its llaiinel wrapper, was found,
when withdrawn, reduced to a line powder, like snow almost. What had happened was that the sealed glass tube,
when sinking to gradually increasing
depths, had held out long against the
pressure, but this at last had become too
great for the glass to sustain.
lt is only reasonable to suppose that
the ability to sustain this enormous
pressure can only lie acquired by animals
alter generations of gradual migrations
from shallow waters. Those forms that
aro brought up by the dredge  from the
aeptns 01 tlie ocean are usually killed
and distorted by the enormous and rapid
diminution of pressure in their journey
to tlie surfaco, and it is extremely probable that shallow-water forms would
be similarly killed and crushed out of
shape were they suddenly plunged into
very deep water. The fish that live at
these enormous depths are, in consequence of the enormous pressure, liable
to a curious form of accident. If. in
chasing their prey or for any other reason, tliey rise to a considerable distance
above the floor of the ocean, the gases of
their swimming bladder become
considerably expanded and their
specific gravity greatly reduced,
Up to a certain limit the muscles of their bodies can counteract
the tendency to float upward and enable the fish to regain its proper sphere
of life at the bottom; but beyond that
limit the muscles are not strong enough
to drive the body downward, and the
fish, becoming more and more distended as it goes, is gradually killed on its
long and involuntary journey to the
surface of the sea. The deep-sea
fish, then, are exposed to a danger that no other animals in this
world are subject to���namely, that of
tumbling upward. That such accidents
do occasionally occur ia evidenced by
the fact tbat some fish, whicli are now
known to be true deep sea forms, wero
discovered dead and floating on the surface of tlie ocean long before our modem investigations were commenced.

The great golden eagle in one of the
Kiost distinguished members of its
mighty family. It is found in many
parts of the world, a kingly inhabitant
of mountainous regions, where it builds
its nest on rocky craus accessible only
to the most daring hunter.
This noble bird is of a rich blackish-
. -iown tint on the greater part of ita
body, its head and neck inclining to a
reddish color. Its tail is doep gray
crossed with dark brown bnrs. Some
largo specimens which have been captured have measured nearly four feet in
length, while the magnificent wings expanded from eight to nine feet.
The golden eagle is uo longer found in
England, but is still plentiful in the
Scottish Highlands, where it makes its
. nest on some lofty ledge of rock among
the mountain solitudes. Swiss naturalists state that it sometimes nests in the
lofty crotch of sonic gigantic oak growing on the lower mountain slopes, but
Audubon and other eminent ornithologists declare that nn eagle's nest built in
a tree lias never come under their observation.
The nost ot this inhabitant of the
mountains is not neatly made like those
of smaller birds, but Is a huge mass of
twigs, dried grasses, brainbli >, and hair
heaped together to form a lied for the
littleones, Here tho mother birdloys
three or four large white eggs speckled
with brown, The young birds are almost coal black, and only assume the
golden and brownish tinge as they become full grown, which is not until
about the fourth year. Eaglets two or
three years old are described in books
of natural history as ring-tailed eagles
and are sometimes taken for a distinct
species of tiie rovalliird, while in reality
tliey nre the children of tho golden eagle
Eagles rarely change their habitation,
and, unless disturbed! a pair will inhabit
the same nest for years. It is very faith-
��� ful to its mate, and one pair huve been
observed living happily together through
a long life. Should one die, the bird left
alone will fly away in seni'c'n of another
mate, nnd soon return with it to its former home. Eagles live to a great age;
even jn captivity in royal gardens specimens have been known to live moro than
a hundred years.
Eagles are very abundant in Switzerland. Although not so powerful
ns the great vulture, which also
inhabits the lofty mountains, they
nre bidder n; 1 more enduring.
: ��� hours tho golden eagle will soar
i dr high above the mountain-tops,
and i i i wide-f circles with
a scarcely percepl bio motion of its
: i hty wings. V\ li i on the hunt for
prey, il   is   very   cnnnii I  sharp

i! ��� scream changes to a quick kik-kok-
kak, re ombling the barkingof a dog,
and gradually sinking until sufficiently
near! it darts in :; '. raiglit line with the
ra iflity of lightning upon its prey.
None of the smaller birds and beasts are
safe fro.ii its clutches.
The strength of the eagle is' such that
'it will bear heavy burdens iu its talons
V'or miles until it reaches its nest, whero
the hungry little ones are eagerly, waiting' the parent's return. Here, standing
un the ledge of rock, the eagle tears tho
Jotil into morsels, wliich the eaglets
eaglsrly devour. It is a curious fact that
near nn eagle's nest thero is usually a
Storehouse or larder���Borne convenient
ledge of rock���where the parent birds
lay up hoards of provisions. Hunters
have found remains of lambs, young
pigs, rubb..s; partridges and other game
heaped up ready for the morning meal
Over its hunting ground the eagle ia
king. Il, fears neither bird, nor beast,
its only enemy being man. In Switzerland, duriug tne win ter season, when the
mountains are snow bound, the eagle
will descend to the plain in search
of food. "When driven by hunger,
it will ">izo on carrion, and even
fight des;.. rarely with its own kind for
the possession of tiie desired food. Swiss
hunters toll many stories of furious battles between eagles over the dead body
of Home pour .chamois or other mountain
Eagles are very affectionate and faithful to their littlo ones as long as they
need care; but once the young eaglets
are able to take care of themselves, the
parent birds drive them from tne nest,
and even from the hunting around,
The young birds nre often taken from
the a.���.-.( by hunters, who with skill and
daring scale tbe rocky heights during
the absence of the parents which return
to lind a desolate and empty nest. But
it goes hard with the hunter if the keen
eyes of i ��� old birds discover liim before

booty. Darling al him with terrible
fury, they : their utmost to throw him

Experiments to Prove tliu Rapidity ot Clx-
w. ciiliitii.il.
Medical workers have mado many
curious experiments, but none more
wonderful than that by which they ascertained the exact timo required for
tbe blood to make ono entire trip
through the system, whioh all students
of physiology know means a complete
circulation through the lungs, veins, 1
arteries and the general capillary j
arrangements. Professors Dalton, Bering, Poisenille, Mattucci and Blake havo
been the chief investigators in this line,
the first named having become more
eminent in this particular branch of research from having the experience of
others to fortify himself with.
All the old school anatomists believed
that a considerable time elapsed, say
from three to nine minutes, from the
time when the blood left the right side
of the heart, traversed the whole system,
and then again returned to the starting
point. Dalton has shown that the time
is much shorter than was formerly generally supposed. Tho chief agent used
in his experiments was a salt known to
chemists as ferrocynnide of potassium,
which can be readily detected in the
blood on account of its chemical reaction. Professor Dalton describes the
operation in the following language;
The blood was drawn from the jugular vein on the opposite side, and the in- ,
terval wliich elapsed before the appear-  !
anco   of  the   foreign  salt iu the blood
drawn from the secontl opening indicat-
ed  the time required for the blood to
pass from thetpoint of injection through
the  vena cava to tho heart, from the
v.   lit    side    of     the     heart   through
I.ie lungs to  the left cavities, from the
left ventricle through the carotid arteries ami the capillary vessels of the head,
and thence downward   to   the   jugular
vein in the  opposite   side.      Dozens of :
carefully   tabulated   tests of this some- j
what   extraordinary  subject show that
the blood of man makes a complete cir- j
culation  onco every fifteen or twenty-
five seconds, according to tho  physical

Abnormally developed waists and hips
are invariably the result of undue pros-

dered inactive by the force brought to
bear upon them, become weak and
flaccid, and as a result soft, flabby flesh
forms over them, When the pressure
is removed, and the muscles through

cholera, smallpox, typhus fover, diphtheria, yellow fever, scarlet fever or

should be buried as quickly as possible,
and should never be transported in a

Public safety demands that all such

A Negro Growing White.
A Philadelphia doctor Iras been'lecturing on i leculiar case lately.
Thomai ' Hevi id, a negro, commo dy
called "Uncle Tom." has evoluted into a
white man. Uncle Tom states thai he
is about 66 years of age. and says that
he was born in the neighborhood of
Washington, D.C., either in Maryland
or Virginia, At an eurly age lie and ins
mother and brother were taken south
and sold to a planter in Hart county.
Georgia. Prior to the war he worked
as a plantation laborer, and since then
has been what is known as a cripper. tilling tin) soil on shares.
At the age of IT his skin began to turn
white in patches. Now his entire epidermis, save a few patches the size of a
nicklo on his cheek bones, is white.
When these patches disappear, which
the doctor says will be probably within
a year or Bix months, Uncle Tom '.''11 be
as white as any man and have nothing
to distinguish him from a Caucasian
save his kinky hair and the oonforuitt
tion of his head. The doctor staled tha.
cases of a partial loss of pigment we" i
not unusual, but said that a comp]' J
loss of color like that; of Uncle Tom w*
remarkable and almost, the only one of
record. This loss of pigment, the doctor
said, was under the influence of the ner-
vous system. Itwa&nsnally associated
with some nervous disease, but in Imole
Tom's instance this um not uppi" j Be
the caso.

The Banning wear ot Cars Is   Not Satisfactory.
"In almost every line of mechanical
inventions you see faults and difficulties
efercome which make it seem nearly
impossible to advance further. Viewed
in this light, the imperfections in the
construction of our railroad car trucks
are strangely inconsistent, for tliey are
palpably at variance with our high attainment in mechanical construction.
I refer to the custom, which lias never
been improved upon since railroading
began, of using wheels securely fastened to rigid axles. It would
seem that, on such an all important matter as this, some inprove-
ments would be made, but there has been
none. The running gear of cars, as now
constructed, is only adapted for use on
straight tracks. But, as thore must bo
curves on roads, the trucks are simply
forced around them. It is said that it requires one-third more motive power to
carry a train around an ordinary curve
than on a straight track. This is due
to tho strain to which tho wheels are
subjected. In making a curve the outside track is longer than the inside ono.
Now with a wheel on - each track and
fastened immovably to nn axle, both
wheels must make the same number
of revolutions. In rounding a curve
how is the insido wheel which has a
much shorter distance to travel, to make
an equal number of revolutions with
the outside wheel? It is done in this
way; Tlie inside wheel slips upon tho
inner or shorter rail, while the outside
one covers the longer distance. At the
same time the Inclination of the track
required in making curves throws most
of the load upon the wheel that is slipping, causing a great strain upon both
wheel and axle. It has been computed
that this strain is equal to double that
of the rolling pressure on a straight
track. To meet Ibis tho axle is mado
much thicker between the wheels than
at the journals, where all the weight of
the car and load is carried. Though it
has been long coming 1 think the day
will finally dawn when these defects in
car trucks will be overcome.

Many people are coming to hove a now
idea of what properly constitutes a
church. They no longer think of it as a
place or an organization merely for
hearing sermons, nor are tley satisfied
with the idea that it is only for worship.
They wish to make it practical, and to
give it power to reach the actual needs
of men and women. Therefore they regard it as an organization for doing
good, and for helping, people in every
possible way.

Mr. Irving and his company are said
to travel with 8,000 wigs; but that only
shows how far we have progressed since
the goo1, old times of the veteran actor
at Sadlers Wells, who is described in the
new number of the .Strand Magazine.
This relic of the "palmy" days used to
boast that he had played several hundreds of parts during "the last fifteen
years," and had made one wig do for
"every character, lie would Hour it, tie
it with a ribbon bow, and Io! he had a
George III. He would red-ochre it for
n carroty cranium of a comic countryman, nnd bo admitted once to block-

walls for powder and scraped the red

that the days of gunpowder as a charge
for naval guns aro numbered, as some
experiments just concluded at the
Governmont proof butts, Woolwich,
appear to prove a decided superiority
for cordite, A 0 inch quick-firing gun
was loaded witli 20 pounds 13 ounces of
the ordinary black gunpowder nnd
yielded a velocity of 1,890 feot per
second, with a pressure strain on the
gun of la tons per square inch. Tho
same gun was charged with 1-1 pounds
11 ounces of cordite, and gavo a velocity
of i, 37-1 1'oet pur second and a pressure
of 15.3 tons. More important still, after
2r>0 rounds had been bred there were no
signs of erosion.
