A number of Vancouver's citizens'  and several citizens of Westminster have  purchased lots still covered with hot  ashes, and .will erect brick blocks.  Westminster's citizens are bearing up  wonderfully well and working with a will  to restore the city to its, former condition.  The disaster is ' nevertheless felt keenly  by many who have lost their all and  although probably a million dollars will  be recovered in insurance   and kindly  *������  help from many quarters will likely add  much more, yet the fund will be much  inferior to the net loss of the community.  Several coast cities in the United States  have sent large donations.   Concerts and  excursions are being held for the ben fit of  the sufferers.

He was raised  by Senator  Macdonald and more than  twenty years past ������ame from Victoria to  Wellington from4 which place lie removed  to Union Wharf something like a year  since. , His remains will be sent to Nanaimo for burial .where his son,  Walter'  ���������-who lost his life a month'ago1 to-day, in  the. fatal bridge accident���������was interred.

Mr. Work seeing  hind car cur  loose ran  over one   half of   forward   car to get on  hind car.    While in the  act of jumping  Mr. Ray gave steam, givjng car a sudden jerk, pulling it away from the other  car    I saw Mr.   Work   trying   to  save  himself by grabbing for hind car.

Then I saw Mr.  Work  roll off the rail on top of the culvert.   We  got down and made him as  comfortable  as we could.    Mr.   Work  wanted to lie  there until the doctor came.

The   Destruction of the  Hnascar Off the  Bolivian  Coast ��������� A Terrible   Slaughter  ,   What a Fight Between Modern War Tea-  .   eels Cleans.  I .  In The Century Claude II. Wetmore  lias an article on "A Famous Sea  Fight," describing the engagement between Chilean and Peruvian ironclads  off the coast of Bolivia in 387 9. Mr.  , Wetmore says:  From  the  first of the battle the en-c  conraging  voice-of  Gran had com o to  . the men in the turret through the speaking tube from the conning tower, but  when the .Blanco crowded into the thick'  of it and great shot struck the Huas-  car's sides as regularly as blows of a  battering ram ��������� the orders of the commander were no longer beard. The officer in charge of the turret called to bis  superior. There was no answer, and,  when Commander Elias Agnerreran np  the narrow little  ladder,that led,tb;the  \tower he stumbled over the .dead body  of his admiral. A shell had struck the  conning tower and had taken off Gran's  head as neatly as if the decapitation  had.been by the guillotine. .This shell  also killed Lieutenant Ferre, the admiral's aid: There was only time to  push  the corpses aside, and   the new  - commanding  officer   pulled   back   the  tube flap to give his directions, bet as  ,he did so the Huascar staggered, keeled  over, then shook  in' every plate, while  - ft concussion more terrific than any so  far told that a shell had entered tho  turret and bad. burst there!. When tho  fumes had cleared away so that a person could speak, a midshipman called  out that one of the great gnns had been  dismounted and 20 men killed. The  survivors tumbled  the  bodies  through  , the hatch that opened into the deck below, thus ��������� releasing the clogged machinery, and as the corpses rattled down  other men rushed up, throwing off their  clothing aa they jumped" into the pools  of blood to seize hold of the gear and  swing the remaining gun into position,  that it-might train vipon one of'the  ships���������they could no longer make out  which, nor did they care���������and it was  discharged, hauled in, loaded and discharged again.  Onco more all ��������� was silent in the conning  tower.    Lieutenant  Palacios hastened there, but before he  could  enter  he was compelled to  push   three bodies  out of the way.   He  had   barely given  his first command when  a  bullet from  the well aimed rifle, .of  a marine in an  enemy's top  lodged   between his eyes.  Then the fourth'to command the Huns-  car that day, Lieutenant Pedro Garezon,  took the place, and as he did so he called   through   an    aperture  telling  the  quartermaster to put'the  helm to port;  (or he had determined to ram one of tho  adversaries and  sink with her if necessary.    Over  and  over 5pun tho  wheel,  but the Huascar's head still pointed between fcbe Chileans.  "Port! Port, I say I" screamed the  commander.  "She won't answer," came back the  sullen reply from the only one of four  quartermasters alive. Tho bodies of the  others were lying upon the grating at  his feet. ���������.,',  "A shot has carried away the starboard steering gear, sir," reported an  ensign, and he dropped dead as the  words left his mouth.      ������  The Iiuascar now lay drifting in a  hell of shot and flame, but all the while  the red, white and' red fluttered from  the peak. One by one, in twos and in  threes, the men in the turret dropped  at their posts, and at last the remaining  great gun was silent, its tackle literally  choked with dead. The turret could not  be turned for the same reason. Gorpsea  hung over the military top; corpses  clogged the conning tower.  With coats and waistcoats off the surgeons bad been laboring in the wardroom upon the wounded, who, shrieking in their agony, had been tumbled  down the companionway like so much  butchered beef, for there was no time  to use stretchers or to' carry a stricken  comrade to a doctor's care. Steam and'  smoke filtered through the doorways,  and tbe apartment became stifling.  While they were sawing, amputating  and bandaging a shell, tore into the  wardroom, burst, arid fragments wounded the assistant surgeons, the chief of  the medical ��������� staff having been killed:  earlier in the, conflict. Those unfortunates who were stretched upon the ta-.  ble awating their turn under the knife  and those who lay upon the .floor suffered no more pain. They were killed as  they lay groaning. This shell tore away  wardroom and stern cabin, and hardly  a trace was left of the bulkhead. After  that what little surgery Was done wan  performed in the coal bunkers.  Huddled in a passageway near tbo  engine room were a score or more of non-  combatants���������stewards, nantrymen  and  Hie English Theory of Where Protection  Ends and Keveaso Begins.  Tho right of self defense is by some  old writers declared to bo inherent in  all men by the law of nature. Nov;,  these "natural rights" are all very  well, but thoy are not recognized, by  the law of Great Britain. It, is the law  that ra man may defend himself, his  wife, child or servant from physical aggression. He may also repel by forco a  forcible attack upon his property. When  you, or your wife, child, or servant v>  attacked, or threatened with violence  in such a manner as reasonably to lead  you to' believe that violence is about to  be used, you may resist the aggressor.  And as the best mode of resistance is.  very often to attack, you may lawfully  follow the advice given by an old prizefighter to a pupil���������i. e., "get in the  first whack."  But  self, ^defense must be modorate.  It must, not be  totally disproportioned  to the attack.    For instance, if a hulking ruffian" runs  at me with a knife, I  may shoot him.   But if  he runs  at me  .merely, with   his  fists ..clinched, and  I  Bhoot him dead with'a revolver, I shall  probably-be hanged   by the  neck.    Not  * that the law expects a man   to be calm  and  cool  and  collected  in all circumstances.   By no means. For instance,- if  the said'burly.ruffian rushes at me with  clinched  fists, evidently meaning  mischief, audi hit him with a'heavy stick  on the back of the oar, I may kill him.  ButIshallnofc.be  hanged  for that.    I  had a right  to use the stick', and in the  circumstances I am not to .be-supposed  to be cool enough to aim for a spot not  likely to be fatal.    Again, self  defense  must not develop into revenge.    Thus,  if I am threatened -with a knife, and by  the timely display of a pistol I frighten  my assailant so that he  runs away, I  must not shoot after him. If I do, I am  just as liable as though  he  had  never  threatened  me, because I  shoot at him  not in self defense, but by way of punishment or revenge.���������Family Lawyer?  LAW  OF THE  UMBRELLA.  An  Important   Opinion   That , Has   Ecsn  Ascribed to Lord Coleridge.  The law as to umbrellas was settlod  once for all by Lord Coleridge in a leading English case.  His lordship held:  "Umbrellas, properly considered, are  a part of tho atmospheric or meteorological condition, and as such there can be  no, individual   property right   in them.  In Sampson versus Thompson defendant  was charged with standing on plaintiff'"  front steps during a storm and thereby  soaking up a   large quantity of  rain to  which plaintiff was  entitled.    But tho  court held that the rain was any num's  rain, no  matter where  it  fell.    It follows, therefore,   that  the  umbrella  is  any man's  umbrella;    In   all ages rain  and umbrellas have   gone together, and  there is no  reason why they should   be  separated   in   law.    An  umbrella may,  uuder certain   circumstances���������the chief  of which is possession���������take on the attributes of personal property, just as if  a man set a cub  and catch  a  quantity  of rainwater,   that  rainwater  will  be  considered  as  his   personal   belonging  while it is in.his-..tub..   But if  the sun  evaporate  the. water  and  it  is  rained  down again or if  the  tub  is upset aud  the water spilled   then   tho attribute of;  personal   ownership    instantly,   disa]  pears.   So if a man hold his umbrella i.  his hand it  may be .considered  a  personal    belonging,   but   tha   moment   it  leaves his hand it returns to the great,  general, indivisable,  common   stock  of  umbrellas, whither the law will not attempt to pursue it."  So far   as we  knew there  has  never  been a successful  appeal  from this d>e  cisicn.���������Chicago News.  Eo   Moved, but When  He  Tried   to Fiad  His House He Failed.  A_ absentminded  man moved to this  city from a neighboring town last week.  He and his wife staid at, a hotel while  they were finding a house, but his business prevented the man from  doing bis  share  of  tho  h'ouso hunting, and   the  task fell, as if of ten does, upon tho wife.  She at last found a place which   suited  her and she took her husband to seo it.'  It was satisfactory, and they came down  town, ho to go back to his business and  she to attend  to  tho moving  of  their  goods from the railway car to the kou'so.'  Her task was soon accomplished, and in  a short Lime she bad  put away most, of  the things, settled  a bedroom0 and  got  the kitchen and  dining  room in order.  By o :5iO in tho afternoon  sho  and   the  new girl had the first dinner in the new  flat all ready for the head of the house.  , In tho  meantime  the absentminded  husband was plodding through thowork^  at his office.    About the  time  that tho  plates were being put on the table at hia  home ho began to feel'tho need of food,  and ho locked up his office  and started  forthe street car.   Wfheu ho reached the  street, he suddenly remembered that ho  had not notice! the address of  his new  residenco.  fie stood on the corner a long  while and tried to think what tho name  of the street was.    Ho consulted the directory, but nono of  the  street  names  was familiar���������in fact, he had not been  in the city long enough to know any of  the   streets  by name   except that ��������� on  which his office was, situated  and  tho  location of the hotel where he had staid  temporarily.' He looked aimlessly at the  crowded street cars and envied tho men  and', womou  who   knew   where   their  homos were'. The pangs of hunger were'  increasing   momentarily,   but, no  suggestion of the locality of his home came  to him.  His mind on that point was a' perfect  blank.   He had even forgotten to notice,  in what style of building-tho. flat was  situated.    Cursing   his   stupidity,    ho  made hia way to the hotel, ate his dinner in disgusted  solitude and  went to  bed.    In  the  meantime  his wife  was  nearly frantic at  his absence.    Night  having fallen, she was afraid to venturo  out, and she, too, went to bed alone and  spent a sleepless night.   In the morning  she made her  way  down   town, found  the office and threw herself weeping into her husband's arms.  .That afternoon  the man bought a map  of  the city aud  marked accurately upon it his  place of  residence, arid  then he had a hundred  cards printed containing  his "house address.���������Chicago Chronicle.    . .'  anve sucn as "l greaUy regret," or  a split subjunctive such as "I should  greatly prefer," or a split imperative  such as "come slowly np," what newspaper would waste an inch of space on  his foolish ignorance? And yet this split  infinitive nonsenso is taken quite seriously by editors who are sufficiently  good writers to repeatedly use it themselves.  The infinitive is a mood in which tho  position of the adverb cannot possibly  produce ambiguity; consequently tbe  order of the words is not a matter of  grammar, but of style, of which the ear'  is the only arbiter. Tho ear often demands the split infinitive and will have  it in spite of all tho silly peopleSvho do  not know what stylo means.  When these infinite insects are disposed of, you will no doubt be attacked  in duo course by tho even more impudent impostors who, though , they pro- '  uounco the word "color" so as to rhyme  with "duller," and never hear it and  never have heard it and never will hoar  it pronounced in any other wajr, from  time to timo protend to be shocked  when it is spelt without a "u." I trust  you will always insist on those nuisances definitely stating whether they  pronounce it or "honor" or "neighbor"  or  "favor"   or  "behavior"  TRIALS OF A PUBLIC  MAN.  so  NO  MAN'S LAND;  ������������������.

There  was some excuse for that poor wretch,  because there unquestionablois a wrong  way of using "and which," but for tbe  "split infinitive" pest there is no excuse  at all.

What  DOCTOR WAS  IN, LUCK.  How Ee  Got a Quarter of  Beef  lie Was  In Want Of.  A prosperous Pi ttsburg physician, who  resides  in  annaristocratic  part of. tho  city, related an experience ho met with  about a' year  after  he  had  graduated  from college.    He was  practicing  in a  small village iri  Indiana   county about  18   miles from" any railroad.    Ho  had  been recently married, and in tho straggle to  make ends meet  the prospect at  times became very discouraging.' It was  during one of  these depressing  periods  in tho middle of the winter, with snow  a foot and  a  half, deep  covering   tho  ground, that he was called   to attend a  farmer who lived some miles away.  Tho  stock of provisions in the house was exhausted, and it yjemed/certain that the  resolution that had been  made   by the  young  couple /not -to  ask  any ono for  credit must  be' broken.    When the call  arrived,' the,doctor,was preparing to go  to the nearest store to ask  the proprie- >  tor to give him "tick" sothat he could  'get something for breakfast.   Instead of  going \o the storage mounted his faithful mare Molly and started off through  the drifts  to visit  his  patient.   -When  tbe doctor rose to leave, after attending  to the patient, the old farmer said:   ..,  "Doc, I ain't'got no money, but if a  quarter of beef'll do you any good I'll  eend it in when,the roads git broke."  The young doctor's heart gave a  bound. Concealing bis exultation^ as  best he could, he said: "What's the  matter with mo taking it right along? I  was thinking of buying some beef, "and  this will come in handy. V  The proposition was accepted, and the  farmer's sou helped put the quarter cf  beef across Molly's shoulders, and the  homeward jouraey began. The mare  was skittish, and the doctor had difficulty in- keeping the beef from falling.  Finally the mare shied at something,  and away went the beef into a big snowdrift. /      '  Tho doctor was a member1 of the  Methodist church, and, according to his  story, did not swear. He dismounted  and endeavored to put the beef on the  mare, but'she wouldn't stand .still, and  after repeated attempts tho task seemed  a hopeless one.v Thinking of the resolution, the young doctor set his ieeth and  tried again. This time he was successful. He felt like a conquering hero as  he dumped tho beef on the portico of his  modest home about midnight. The  faithful little wife was sure it was a  dispensation of Providence, but the doctor, remembering his struggles at the  snowdriit, reserved his opinion.���������Pittsburg Dispatch.

Stockham  was advised by Tolstoi,' to visit the  Naiars on tbe Malabar coast of India,  and witness a type of civilization unknown elsewhere among tbe inhabitants  of earth. Here, according' to a writer,  the husband is a mere incident in the  'social organization. Woman's power is  autocratic and absolute. She wins or  divorces a husband at will. She frames  and.administers tho laws by which he  lives, and through her is the descent of  the property, which he may earn, but  not own.

The successful  man of eligible years is'wooed and won  as is the fortunate and accomplished  maiden of our country.  Tha impropriety of manifesting affection for a woman before it is solicited  is thoroughly'instilled into the mind of  the Naiar man, and, while the strife between natural tendencies and national  custom may sometimes approach the nature of an irrepressible conflict, to yield^  is ruin and humiliation irreparable.  The eligible bachelor must await' an  avowal of love and choice and suffer in  silence1 if it be long withheld. The  Naiars are of Brahman origin and much  above the average inhabitants of India'  in intelligence and in the administration  of their native government. Better native schools'are found here than elsewhere in India, arid a surprising degree  of domestic contentment.���������Springfield  Republican.  i  CAKE WALK IS FRENCH.  REMARKABLE   SHOOTING.

There is little doubt that it is an offshoot of some  of the old French country dances. It resembles eeveral of tkem in form. From  New Orleans it spread over the entire  south and thence north. It was found of  convenience to the plantation negroes.  They were not weddedr, by license, and  it was seldom that tho services of a  preacher were called in.  At a cake walk a man might legitimately show his preference "for a woman and thus publicly claim her for a  wife; In effect the cake walk' was not  different-from the .old Scotch marriage,  which required only public acknowledgment from the contracting parties.^ So  this festival-became in somo sense a  wooing, an acceptance.or'' rejection and  a ceremony. This explains its popular-*  ity with tho blacks, outside of its beauties, with tho accompaniment of music, which is competent at all times to  command negro support.  Cake walking has improved, as do  most things that are'constantly practiced. It has lost its old significance in the  south. Negroes now get married, when  they marry at all, in the white folks'  fashion. It has, however, become a pantomime dance. Properly performed, it  is a beautiful one. The cake is not much  of a prize, though tho negro has a'sweet  tooth.���������New Orleans Times-Democrat.  Killing Four Caribous Out of Five at Lcn;  Distances. '  A party of four of us left Bath for the  upper part of Maine  for  a   four   days'  hunting trip. There was one man among  as, Orderly Sergeant Richardson', U. S.  A., at Fort  Popham, Me., still   in   tha  service.    On the third morning three of  ~ns���������the sergeant, another and myself���������  left camp together in   search   of  gams,  the snow  falling   thick, but  calm; no  wind.    We had not  gono  moro  than a  mile from  camp when we saw -on   the  next   ridge   (a   hillside) five  caribous  standing in such an open  place that it  was almost impossible to get  nearer to  them without being seen.    After a wait  of some timo for them to chango   their  position, that we might advance and get  a shot  of  more  certainty, our  silence  was broken  by   tbo  sorgeant's  remark  that he had killed deer as far  away   as'  that, and thought ho could  kill  ono of  these.  We all agreed to let him take a shot  and estimated tho distance at 500 yards.  When he got in  his position, .which' ho  calls the Texas grip, and   selecting   the  one on tho right told  us to look out for  him, at the  crack, of  his  rifle, to1 my  great surprise, down came'tho  animal  with his back broken.  The others, being  bewildered; ran in a circle like, coming  to a standstill' somewhat nearer to us;���������  all  hands estimated 450 yards.   ,Again  he solected the one on the right, and at  the crack of the gun   again   tho animal  dropped, shot through  the'heart.    Tho  other three leaped off in  another direc-,  tion, as we'estimated, 600 yards.   Then  the sergeant adjusted his eights to that  distance, ,and to. my   great' surprise he  killed the third one.

The miners as well as the mine owners operating in northern  Idaho are peculiarly interested   in   rational   and effective methods of  forest  protection to  what remains of tho public timber lauds,  and  as  producers  of national   wealth  have a right to demand   it.    They have  the result of years of wanton  forest destruction before their  eyes  and can see  themselves  confronted with   a   timber  shortage before many years that threatens their commercial aud industrial life.  That such a condition is last approaching needs no prophetic vision to foresee.  Tho extent cf burned forest laud tho  past 10 years as developed  in  these regions is   an   evidence   that   requires no  supporting argument to mako effective.  That many thousands of  acres of forest  etill exist in the   Occur  d'Alene basins  does not weaken the fact of an impending timber shortage.   Under the preseut'  conditions   two   or   three   dry   season's,  would  suffice  to'wipe  cut   the   larger  portion   by far of   what remains of'the  forests in this part of the .state.    Thero  is not yet adequate protection or supervision, and public sentiment upon these  points is not yet  sufficiently aroused.  The Quality of Ileal  Fun.  One  man   said   to another in an elevated car about   something that ho 'had  just read, "Now, that is  actually funny," and then he  read   it  over  again.  The   inference  from  this'.is, of course,  that many of   the things written in tun  are not  really funny, and, making due  allowance for lack of-appreciation, it is  doubtless true that much of tho matter  written as  fun   actually does  lack the  true spark. It may be well intentioned,  good  natured,   even   cheerful, aud  yet  lack the peculiar filling, satisfying, energizing,  refreshing,   uplifting  quality  of real fun. .  The man who has this kind of fun in  his heart and who has besides the power  of communicating it to his neighbor  need not go to the Klondike for his reward.���������New York Ledger.  An  Animal Which  Stands With  Its Feet  Imbedded la  Hocks.  On the Miles Wilbur farm, less than  two miles from Palmyra, Wis., nearly  midway butweeu Bald bluff and the  Curuliau epriug, on a wild, rocky hill-  sido of the Kettle range of bluffs, may  be found a hngo rock known far and  near as the "i-toue elephant."  It is an._u.ally visited by large numbers of people, somo of whom pronounce  it a petrified elephant of monster size,  but the theory rucsn generally believed  is that it was hewed cut of tho solid  rock in which it seemed imbedded centuries ago by some prehistoric race.  As if to substantiate this latter theory,  from time to time many valuable tools,  relics and implements unknown to tho  people of this ago have been found about  its base and in that immediate vicinity.  It is about 20 feet long, G or 8 feet high,  of a dark gray color and weighs hundreds of tens. Tho bedy only is above  the level cf tho ground, its 'legs being  deeply sunk below, holding it firmly in  a standing position.  A tradition believed by many is that  around this huge stone the Indians  gathered to offer sacrifice to the Great  Spirit and burn their '���������.prisoners at the  stake'or make them tho victims of slow  torture known only to the Indians. It  is a long established and Generally believed theory that in this immediate vicinity and about Bald bluff and the big  spring were some of their most famous  battlefields and hunting grounds.���������^Boston Transcript.  Many, Are  the Achco  and Fains   It Will  Believe.  Not a phrase conveying an impres- '  sion of entire felicity, yet it may be  found that water, hot, has manifold  uses and is peculiarly able in certain  places to afford comfort and relief. A  physician who has' tried it says that no  agent so quickly relieves .nausea and  vomiting as water, hot' as it can be  taken. For constipation drink of hot  water a short time before retiring at  night. Dyspeptics are benefited by sip- -  ping a cup of hot water an hour before  eating. The same practice tends to flesh  production, arid is ono of the rules given  sometimes in prescriptions for the cure  of lameness.  As water is  so considerable an ele- ,  ment in the physical, structure, it is in,; -  some sense  a food,  though���������knowing,'  too, that without it life cannot be sup- -  ported���������it is not usually  regarded in  that manner, and the knowledge that a  weak stomach  will  retain  hot  watery  When it will nothing else may be oftentimes of value.  Let those who are inclined to sneer at-  "only hot water" try a cup of it, fresh  water, quickly heated and brought to a  boil, used with cream and sugar as for >  coffee.   If coffee, as many believe, encourages dyspepsia, and tea' renders its  consumers subject to headaches, while   .  a.cold fluid with warm fluid is not hygienic, it answers to reason that if any .  drink must be used at meals, the one!'  we are considering (or else hot milk)7'<-  having none of tbeir objectionable quaL*\\.  ities, is"preferable.

When a person is tired and heated,  bathing the face with warm water will'  prove more comfortable as well. as less  dangerous than the use of cold: Weak  eyes are made stronger by bathing them  regularly in - water as hot as can' be  borne. If they are tired, such bathing,,  to which isr sometimes added a little  salt, will wonderfully rest them.  For a fine complexion and velvety  skin never use cold, but warm water in .  washing the face. It may be first washed with soap and hot water, then rinsed  with tepid water. - To bathe the face  daily in hot water will, it is said, remove pimples., And the appearance of  wrinkles may be greatly delayed, it' is  believed, by the use of the hot bath.���������  St. Louis Republic.
