The above, clipped from Herald  of 30th ult., and duly credited to  the Colonist, has taken all here by  surprise. Enquiry fails to substantiate the report, and the only construction that can be placed on it is  that the story of the shooting of H.  Simonsen, a baker in the employ of  John Morrochi, has been distorted  by the Colonist reporter.

From.Cant. Boiidrodfc, the Pilot,'and Mr  McKellar," chief Hiat.e, we learned the following particulars of Capt Salmoud's'death.  cThe "Welliogton" left Juneau on September 29fch, with Capfc. Salmoni. in command.  F.oin about 9 a.m. oji the 30fch, tho Captain  cbmulained of beiug unwell, but was able to  be on dufcy and continued to; tlirecu> the  navigatiug of tho vessel up to 7.50 p.m.,  when the vessel was be'ng'heatled for ' Cu3-  tom-houso Cove, Mary Island, where they  in-euded to anchor for tho night. As preparations were being cnada to anchor, the  Captain said to the Pilot, "you anchor heie,  I must go below ac I am feeling very unwell, having very heavy paina in the stomach." When the vessel waa anchored at'-  8 pjm. the Pilot left the bridge and went to  the Captain's room where he found him in  great agony. At the Captain's, request  mustard plasters were brought and placed,  on his stomach and back, and he'was alsoS  1 givon some1 whisky and laudanum. Later he  was given an emetic, and after vomiting was  , again given some whisky and laudanum..  The pain at times would ceaso for a few  ���������moments, when it would return with increased severity. At 9.25 p.m. while Captain Salmond was sitting on the side of his  bed he suddenly fell forward on the floor,'  and in a few moments was dead. He did  not regain consciousness nor speak after falling. Every effort waa made hy the officers  on board to revive him but without avuil.  Tho body was brought hore, aj stated  above, and Coroner Abrams notified, who  summoned a Jury, bringing in a verdict,of  death from heart failure.  The body, after being embalmed, waa  placed in a metallic.casket and sent by s.s.  Thistle to Ladysmith, en route to San  Francisco w^ore it is understood interment  will take place.        ' ���������     '  ���������  Captain Salmond had been iu connnaud of  the s.s. Wellington for over 13 years, and  was one of the best known and most successful navigators Ou Ihe coast. H13 sudden  death will be much regretted by hia large  circle of friends and acquaintances. Capt.  Salmond. was born at Arbroath, Scotland,  about 4z8 years ago. He leaves a wife, resident in San Francisco; and his aged father  still lives at the old home in Scotland.

AT THE ADMIT* A I/TV AND LLOYDS.  Sir Charles Collingham lived out  Kensington way in a new red house on  Campden hill., I got there in less than  half an hour, for my carriage was at  the door, and, although I knew something of his ways from Willie Wood. I  hoped to catch him before he.left home.  It was not yet 30 a. m. He was out  already on his bicycle when I arrived,  but lie came up. fortunately, just as I  was asking for him.  "Come for news or brought some,  bey. Miss Fairholme? If it's the first. I  can't.help you���������worse luck; if the other���������and. egad, by the look on your bon-  nie'face I--believe, you've something to  tell!' Is that it? ' Ha!" He hopped off  his "bike" with all'the alacrity of. a  young man, and led the way into the  house. ,   '   '  "Surprising chap, that American!"  he' cried in his brisk, abrupt tones. "1  suppose, we're bound to believe him.  Actually did break in and all that, hey?  Anyhow, he's forwarder than we are,  for I've been down to Clarges street to  inquire if Master Wood had turned.lip  and drew blank, of course."  VOh. but. Sir Charles, how could he?"  I said, quickly.' "Aud .ought we to be  talking, .wasting time here? He has  been kidnaped, as you see. Surely it  is.'our business to follow up this clew  without a moment's loss of time. He  must be rescued, recovered."  "And the papers���������they'will have carried off the papers with them, you may  depend upon that. By the Lord Harry,  you are right! But how. how in heaven's name���������how are we to overhaul  that yacht?   I do,not see my way."  "By following in another, to be sure.  1 will pay' anything.��������� Only do, please;  let us lose no 'more time. Could' not  we get a man-of-war?"  "By Jove,'you're right! If we could  ha^e a fast cruiser now! Upon'my'  soul, I 'believe it might be done! If 1  could only persuade'them at the'admiralty. It's an affair of national, Importance to recover those papers!"  ' We drove straight to the admiralty  in' Whitehall, where the general was  admitted' without question' or delay.  We were soon introduced to a Captain  . Pulteuey, who proved to be naval secretary to the first lord and a very  charming man, I dare say, but'l took  a gre<it dislike to him, for he began at  once Xo make difficulties, speaking, I  thought, in a sneery, put you down  sort of way which was very irritating.  "What could we send? There isn't  a ship," he said, addressing the others,  and seeming to imply that the whole  British navy had ceased to exist. "Besides, if I could lay hands on a gunboat or dispatch vessel, what course  would she steer? What is she to look  for? The whole thing is a wild goose  chase.    I'm dead against it."  "I think we'll, see Sir George," remarked my dear general stiffly. "We  can discuss these points better with  him," and  we again  moved on,  Cap-  "So I went bach to hi,m and. threatened  his life."  ���������together. So the parties have split up.  One lot are aiioat with their prisoner,  .meaning. I've no doubt, to keep hiiu  ii way at sea. incapable of interfering,  while the others carry on their spoliation in New York. That's how I figure  (..5t now." said the detective shrewdly.  "I dare say you're right." I interrupted him hastily. "But surely these  , speculations will not help us. We've  ��������� go-t to give chase to that yacht. How  ':ts it to be done?"  "You see, she has a tremendous  ���������start."  "No auxiliary screw can do more  "than eight or ten knots/ I believe.  Mother and I were in the Mediterrane-  ;an last year with oue of the best. Let  ������������������us hire something faster. There must  '*&<* plenty of steamers.. I will pay any  i'P'rice'gladly."  "Then we have no idea of what  ���������course the Fleur-de-Lis has taken."  "There' are signal stations all along  'the coast, I believe. We hear of ships  '-being reported every hour almost, as  'long as they are in sight of land."  "She will fly no signals and will certainly get out of sight of land."  "Oh, dear, dear!" I said, almost cry-  toff -with rage.    "You only make difficulties.    It's too terrible to think of.  tain    Pulteuey    following,    grumbling  and growling all the way.  But Sir George Fitz Hugh (he was  tho first sea lord) sided with Captain  Pulteney. The information was too  vague; nothing was positively known,-  neither about the papers nor about  Captain Wood.  "You see, Sir Charles,1 you have nothing to go on about those papers, were  they stolen,' seized, whatever we  may call it. Who can be certain of  that, or of anything, except that they  have disappeared, as Wood has? And  you infer that the same people have  taken them both. How do we know  that? You take too much for granted.  Or, let us admit they were taken, how  do we know that they were put on  board the yacht? It is all pure conjecture. I should be very sorry to  act���������to take upon ��������� myself to act; we  must wait for the first lord."  "When do you expect him?".I asked  impatiently, I was getting cross at all  these difficulties and delays, and I  could see that. Sir Charles Collingham  was dangerously rear losing his temper. He only controlled himself by remaining stolidly silent.  "He is always here-in the afternoon;  takes the office on his way to the  house. You might see him, then, Sir  Charles, if so minded," said the naval  secretary.

Wh'.n Queen Victoria's coronation  was celebrato-d in,'Toronto, the peoplo had not outgrown the partisan  bitterness of the recent rebellion, and  the unsettled state of society prevented such a spontaneous and unanimous celebration as occurred on later demonstrations in honor of tlie  Queen. The thirteen thousand people  of Toronto, then but four yca.s re-  inovr.fi from its still deserved title of  Muddy York, contained many sympathizer'* with the ������������������patriots," ar.d still  apprehended  further   trouble.'

Besides showing the un-.ettlcd condition of affairs mcl .th:? parti-ran bitterness prevailing, the p: oidaniation  would earn for its writer a diploma  for 'ofiiciency in 'the use of, abusive  adjectives^ in 'referring to the malcontents."  A record of the celebration is preserved in The Patriot' of Friday,  June 29, 1838, on ultra-loyal seini-  weekiy'sheet, v.hich referred to -the  somewhat restricted celebration'. Tho  Patriot, which was published by rl hernias T)alton, had an account/ without, heading, and situated at the  bottom of a. ' column on an innjr  Page.

Many  notable women who have interested .themselves in the progress of  the world have still been- the best of  mothers in the home.   A recent writer  recalls certain women as examples of'  this  truth.    Victoria   was   not   less  a  mother because shec was a ruler.  Marie  Theresa was a great empress and gi\at  mother   too.    Julia 'Ward   Howe 'lias  been a'faultless mother as-well as woman'of affairs.--Elizabeth Cady Stanton never, failed in her motherly duties,  while advocating-suffrage for women,  nor did Lucy Stone or Mary A. Liver-  more. : Margaret Sangster,  the editor,  public  speaker and  poet,  has been  a  mother first and most of all.   As a rule  those who find themselves not equipped -to play the part at home and the.  part abroad  content themselves with  the part for which they are best fitted.  Genius, talent, learning, may be requisite for the paths of the outside life,  increasing with their use, but character, the lasting and important thing, increases with a faithful mother until it  becomes'the very apotheosis of itself.  ga^L-  JFSr Little,  28  A SIPHON  TRICK.

There is still living in a New\ York  state town a woman who made a great  sensation a "little more than half a century ago by appearing as a clerk behind the counter iu her father's .store  in Buffalo. The shopgirl had not yet  beep born, , and for a woman to be  found in ^such a position was a novelty I  that drew great crowds, who stood j  gaping outside the windows at the girl  selling needles and thread and measuring off tape by the yard. Rapid indeed  has been the evolution which has ere--  atcd an army of women who serve behind the counter in every kind of business. ->,   ;  Good IKonxctrnp,  A good mousetrap can be arranged  by turning a bowl over a'dinner plate  with one edge lifted upon a bit of  wood an inch across, about one-half of  which is whittled to a point. Upon  this,point a bit of roasted cheese is  placed, and the edge of the bowl is  raised on one side and held up by the  stick. As the balance is very easily  disturbed, the mouse in taking off the  cheese, is, certain to let the bowl down  upon the plate in a way to imprison  itself.  Table Linen.  Do not'allow boles to appear in table  linen" until it is alb so thin that it has  to be laid aside. On Saturday before  the clothes are assorted for the washing look overall the soiled tablecloths  and napkins, holding them'to the light.  Use embroidery (loss to correspond  jvith the quality'of the linen, aud every  thin place should'be darned or run as  neatly as possible. You have no idea  how much longer linen will last when  cared for  keeping.  , <    Tlie French-worn an"n Dressing-.  The great difference in., dressing in  France and dressing in -America is  that the Frenchwoman, whose gown  is her religion, will elect only for (the  styles, fabrics and colors .which individually suit and compliment her. She  never puts*on a gown o'r'selects a certain style of, coiffure because her relative, her neighbor or her best friend  looks charming in it. "Know thyself"  is her motto, and this is why she is always and ever a pretty and' interesting figure in art to study' and her  gowning a liberal sartorial education  to"those who elect for what they see  is the latest' fasliion . whether it is  suited to'their particular style, figure  and surroundings or not. ,This is. of  course, far from being true of all our  cultured and accomplished Americans;  but, taken as a nation entire, the women who are always perfectly, appropriately and artistically gowned are in  the minority, even though they number  many thousands.  Brijsht Colored Flowcri.  For bright color in the garden use  petunias, poppies, phlox, oschschollzia  and nasturtiums; for climbers, nasturtiums again, flowering beans, morning  glories. Japan hop and wild cucumber;  for edging, sweet alyssum, candytuft  and lobelia; "for low beds, verbenas,  portulaca and gaillardia.  .The Children's Stocking-!*.  A suggestion that any home darner  may appreciate was got recently by  watching a class of little girls at work  at a sewing school. For the big knee  holes of children's stockings a piece of  strong net was first basted over the  hole, the darning then being accomplished with great neatness and  strength and in a much shorter time  than in any other way. The same  method was applied with equal success to the mending of woven underwear.  7<Ii:Jt   Sherbet.

Lincoln's Boys.  The White House has not been the-  home of many boys.. President Lincoln had three sons���������namely, Robert*  Willie and Thomas. Robert was a  young man who entered the army.'  Willie died early in the administration,  and Thomas, or "Tad," was the "child *  of the White House," the object of  everybody's love, being a thoroughgoing American boy, independent and;  mischievous, but at the same time  thoughtful. The. president made him  his companion. "Tad" was a great favorite with the soldiers and often  marched with them, ate- with them  and slept wilh ,them. On the night  that President Lincoln was shot it was  "Tad" who first acquainted the servants in the White House with the  tragedy, addressing his friend. Thomas  Pendel. the usher at the White House,  with the cry: "Oh, Tom Pen, Tom  Pen!   They have killed my papa!"  - She  Knew   Bim.  "If yourefuse me. it will kill, me."-he  declared.

Place in two  parallel rows and about two feet apart  five large and irregular potatoes and at  the end an empty bowl. The contestant  must pick up each potato on a teaspoon, carry it-to the bowl and drop ifc  in. The potato must uot be touched by  hand or foot and if dropped must not  be picked up on the spoon again.  Watch attitudes and faces and exercises of will, for, oh, how that left  hand will want to help! Even the most  dignified must unbend in this genial  struggle. Record is kept of those first  succeeding in getting all the potatoes  into the bowl, and these again race  against each other until the champion  reveals himself or herself. This should  be played\if possible on an uncarpetecj  floor.  Wnshittcton Tlinlier.  "Pennsylvania avenue at one timo  had trees down tbe center.

(1"It is queer," says a clergyman of  New York city, "what a liking young  students have for,long words and Latin  quotations and what a dread possesses  them of appearing conventional. 1 once  knew a promising candidate, who was  given charge of a funeral In the absence of tlie pastor of the church. He  knew it was customary for the minister to, announce after the sermon that  those who wished should step up to  ���������view the remains, but he thought this  was ,too hackneyed a phrase, and he  said insread.

What is it you have been writing in  that book for this last three nights?*'  "Perhaps   I   can   make   you   understand," he replied  after the lapse of  "SAW A HAN-  "PASSIXG ATjOSG,   FOLLOWED  BY A'DOG."  two or three minutes.    "Can you re-  .member what happened to you at; 10  /o'clock   in   the   forenoon   day   before  yesterday?"  "Nothing happened."       -i ��������� ���������  "That is, the house didn't catch fire  or any one attempt to murder you, but  nevertheless things may have happened to send ,a man to state prison or  clear him of a grave charge. The grav-  ,est cases sometimes '-turn upon" the  merest trifles. The-life of a man in  St. Louis was saved the other day be-  \ 'cause a woman., remembered, seeing  him in an alley at a certain hour."  "And so you* aro jotting down things  ��������� to save human life?" she Queried.  "It may be. At any rate, I have set  out to jot down most of the happenings of each day. and no one can say  ���������what results may follow. ��������� History,  may be made of some of my memoranda." ���������     ;���������  ','1 .think you are wasting time over  it. If you have an hour to spare, you  had better work at that ingrowing toe  nail-of yours."  "Heavens, woman, must you always  lug  sore  heels,  toe  nails   and  porousr  "plasters into a conversation?" shouted  Mr. Bowser as a rich red color showed  'in his face.' ' >\-  "But you are complaining of your  toe," she protested.  "That may be, but dou't mingle toes  nna Drains, isut ror the diaries ana  ���������memorandum books left behind by the  people of the past where would our  historians' have secured their mate  rial?"  "And what have you jotted down  thus far for the benefit of future history?','  "Nothing   of   much   account,   but   I  have  been  at work  only  three  days.  I, think my jotting might help to un-.  ravel a few mysteries, however.   I will  read you what I have written:  . "Wednesday.���������Arose,   at . the   usual  hour.    Looked out of the window and'  saw a man passing along, followed by  .��������� a dog.   Man had a disreputable appearance and a furtive look.    Usual breakfast.   Left the house at the usual hour.  Saw a man on the street car with blue  goggles   on.     He   seemed   anxious   to  escape observation.    Wonder  if there  is any connection between him and ,the  .. man with the dog."  "I think there is," replied Mrs. Bow-  ' 6er.    "I think-the man with  the dog  .,' watched,'outside, while the goggle eyed  man'sneaked in and drove the dagger  to the poor bhby's heart."   .  Mr.'Bowser glared at her for a min-  *ate, and his hair could be beard curling, but with-a powerful effort he held  on to himself and continued:  "Thursday.���������Arose as usual.' . Thermometer stood at 4"> degrees ��������� above.  Usual slip slop breakfast. Had scarcely left the house when I encountered  the furtive looking man again. He  had disguised himself, but I knew him  at once. His dog was not following  him."  "The poor animal had probably got  tired out." said Mrs. Bowser, who  wanted" to get even for the "slip slop  breakfast."  "Your case will be attended to latei  on, and I will now read the rest: Had  ���������carcelv taken  the street car when I  Mrs. Bowser as he paused.  "Yes."  "Why didn't you add that you kicked  the front door open when you arrived  and that you told Mrs. Bowser you'd  bring up in the poorhouse because  you found a broken clothespin at the  gate?"  "By thunder, woman, yon are going  too far, too far!" he shouted as he rose  _up.() "If I sat down here to read a  chapter from the Bible, you'd manage  to turn' it to ridicule. You seem to  .have less and less sense as time passes."      - ,   -    -  "I was just wondering what the future historian would find in your note3  to make history on," she quietly replied.  "How can we tell that the man with  tho dog is not a red handed anarchist  plotting against the life of the mayor?  If so, my notes will-convict him."  "I-think he works in a livery stable  down the street, and I have seen him  and his dog a hundred times." ' .  "But the man with the goggles? Suppose he is a seditionist."  "Oh, the man with the goggles' lived  on.the next block, and he got pepper,  In his eyes two weeks ago. Our' own  doctor' attended him. I can't exactly  understand how you saw him wink at  another man. Did one of the goggles  wink?"  "None of your business! If you take  comfort'in being an idiot, go ahead in  it. I know the value of these notes  and shall keep them up. For'instance,  when I came home this evening"���������  "Well?" queried Mrs. Bowser as he  waited.       - <- ,; ,  ���������"a suspicious looking  person -was  hanging over Brown's gate.    He was-  ��������� short and  squat.    He was  run dowr  at the heels.    Suppose Brown is inur-,  dercd in his bed .tonight and the house  robbed.    My notes will furnish a clcvi  to the police, and within twenty-fdm  hours the murderer is arrested."  Mrs. Bowser was convinced that.thi  suspicious person was a man who hac  been beating carpets' for tho Browni  all the afternoon, but'she didn't say so  and Mr. Bowser continued:  "Since we;haye been sitting here .this;  evening I havo heard and made note:  of two firo alarms, one ambulance call  a cry of seeming;distress imd the liow  of a dog. They may not prove of value o  and yet they may bring a criminal t<  justice."  "And you won't fix your toe thi.  evening?" she asked as he walke<  around.  Mr.'Bowser halted to bestow a loql  of contempt upon her and then starte<  down stairs to have a. look at the fui  nacein the cellar. He was thinking of  -future history ��������� as ho descended and  presently, missed a step, and turned  head-, over heels, with a j*ell, and  brought up on the cellar bottom.. Mrs.  Bowsei" hurried down to1 find him sitting up in a daze, and after ;-she had  felt of the bump on his head and ascertained that neither arm nor leg was  broken she said: - ,_  "Friday Evening.���������Have seen, nothing of the'man with the goggles or  the man with the dog, but in descending my cellar stairs I engaged in a  circus performance for. the benefit of  the future historian. Was assisted up  stairs by niy wife, the cook and;the  cat. No change in the system of government' on my account. Come, Mr.  Bowser."  He got up slowly and painfully and  with many a sigh, and, leaning against  the wall, he pointed his finger at'her  and tried to express his feelings in fitting language; but all he could get out  was: ' ,!   -  "Wo-woman, by th-thunder"���������     ���������  M.

The following story is told of a- ventriloquist, now famous, but at the time  of this happening so hard up he used to  walk between the cities whore he was  to appear..    On one of theye tours he  came >to\Philadelphia on foot, and oh  the road he picked up a. miserable little  dog '"because it looked so much like he  felt."   The story will explain what became, of the dog. ���������  ;/.  ;  The first house ne came to was a'-sa-  ���������oon, and of course he" wanted a drink.  He had no money, but went iii anyhow  to see what "he could,do., --.The proprietor, a German.-said:. .v*7".  "Well*, what-will you,have?"  I-Ie said,.'"I'll take a little'whisky;"  and then, turning to the dog, he asked:  "What will you have?" ���������  '," Tlie "answer came very promptly: -.  .    "I'll take a ham sandwich."  The German was so surprised he almost fainted.    He looked at the dog a  .moment and then asked: ; .  "Whatdid 3*ou say?"  The. dog replied: 7        S^   . ."'.'S  'T said a ham sandwich."

So everything was settled, the money  paid, etc., and. as the ventriloquist went  out he turned and waved his hand to  the dog and said:  '"Well, goodby, Jack. I'll come baek  soon."

Theso wheels were no  doubt'at first worked by a flowing river  and then by a falling-stream, and it  would not be a very great advance on  this .method-, to dam back the stream  so as to obtain a continuous supply of  force-even in times of drought' Such  storing of water at a sufficiently high  level is the simplest and even at the  present time the most successful method'of storing forces If carefully arranged, the loss by .evaporation and*  leakage is small and may be partly or  wholly replaced by. rain, so the force is  always'available, and but little labor ,ia  needed to keep such works in repair.  The water clock of the Romans was  an elaboration of this method of storing force and was.for them the onlj  form of "motor."   ti  Diet and Character. .

Fires, as a rule, make little progress,  in the primeyal forests of the Pacific, Coast, the ground being com  pletely shaded.by the dense, growth  of timber and underbrush. Different conditions exist where logging  .operations have been , prosecuted or  farms opened. The heavy forest  growth has been removed, and .the  gruund is covered with the branches  .and needles of fir, trees and under-  ,brush, and exposed to the sun's  rays during the summer. Dry as  tinder, a spark is then sufficient to  ���������start a fire. The devastation in the  standing timber-, however, is generally relatively small in the vicinity  of logging camps. Farmers are  BOineumes responsible for some of  the forest .fires by starting fires to  clear land during the dry summer  months for the purpose of getting  rid'of slashed' timbers, "etc., should  be stopped,- -as there can be no  doubt that.this" practice is responsible for many of- the forest fires that  have occurred in. British Columbia  and the Sound c.ountry. .. ,   .,, ,;:  The return of Lieut., Peary after"  a most successful Arctic-trip must:  be particularly gratifying to Ameri-  cans. ; More than four years have  passed: since the expedition was  undertaken, and although the party  did not succeed Aa -.reaching the  North Pole, much "valuable infer-,  matioh has been obtained that was  not clearly understood before, be-  sides, the securing of valuable relics  of former expeditions, rare animate,  geographical ani other important  data. The latitude reached exceeded that of previous American explorers, he having penetrated to  latitude 84 deg. 17 min. . while  Nansen worked to lat., '86 deg;-- 14  min., and the Duke of Abruzzi, 86  deg. 33 min. t. The valuable information obtained by Lieut. Peary  -will more than compensate for the  failure to reach the North Pole.

The large cable ship "Colonia"  which was at Esquirnalt not long  ago, has on board 3,459 miles of  cable. The " Anglia" will, meet her  ���������at Honolulu. The "Colonia" will  lay her cable from Bamfield Creek  to within 100 miles of Fanning Island, where the end will be buoyed  and mcred. The con nee'ing link  will be laid by the "Anglia."

Up to half time, there  was no score, and it looked as though  the Navy'.'men had a chance of  winning, but when the Cumber-  lands got the down grade in second  .'half, the goals piled in quickly.
