Ifi.���������In the police  court  yesterday morning Magistrate  Willian.s gu.e the decision that it is  unlawful  for   any   grouse,   cock-pheasants,  or     (rout  to he at any time  in a sin-.* lioi.se,   wTie-hniiSs*,  or eating.hone.    'I lie judgment is an    ini.  portanl one.    Because of the ease being a test case, and  mitigating circumstances  in connection  with it, no  /   fine was imposed.  The facts of the case are that Mr.  VE'vM-uling,   proprietor   of   the    Kijig  Edward     Restaurant on     Hastings  street, had  a cock-pheasant and four  grouse, hanging in his kitchen,  which  * were found  there by Provincial Constable  Smith., The eyideuce showed  that .these birds belonged  to Mr.  H.  H. .Playiord,   manager of the Leland  Hofel,   and  to Mr.   P. Gibson,  tlieir  names   being  on a label  attached to  the birds.    Before   the* birds      were  hung on     the premises,  Mr. Muling  had     asked   Mr.'G.  Upton,  deputy  ganie warden,  about* it, and the latter'replied that it would  he all right  * Thc defence was* that the birds did  ->t, belong to Mr.  Muling,  and that  he had  hcen  told,    to cook them tor  >se   who  did  own  them;      consequently   he     was     not  breaking the  law.   The charge was laid under subsection   2 of Section   20,   which provides that tlie birds shall not be kept  in possession. '  There was no disputing the fact  that. tho. hisds were in possession,  but the extenuation was urged that  as the Deputy Game Warden had1  said it would be all right, it would  hardly he fair to impose a fine. Thc  magistrate. agreed with this view,  and though he found the accused  guilty, no penalty was  imposed.  ^ Is-  Singular Succession |pf Fatal Accidents in  Manitoba  Two Railwaymen, a Miner  and a Teamster, are  Killed  Winn/ijpeg, Nov. 85.���������A .singular succession of fatal accidents  occurred in  Manitoba and  the Middle.West sinco  Saturday.

The dog salmon  season lasts about six weeks^ beginning, about the *^..st of October/ and  usting until the middle of November.  Nearly a thousand' white "fishermen  have found steady employment through-out the season, and as they have  averaged, nearly a hundred fish a day.  it can easily be seen what an immense benefit the packing ol dog salmon has been to them.  "lam speaking of the bona fide fishermen of the Fraser River only," ad- ���������'  ded Mr. Mackie, "for there is an clement which comes over from t>ie Am-   ���������  erican side of the line just for the sock  eye   season, and this element,  which   .  really has no interest in the country  is thc cause of .whatever disturbances  have been made of late."

It has been decided to erect a memorial in Durban ti.i Richard King, a  Natal farmer, who saved the colony  for the. Empiro sixty-three years ago.  The small British garrison at Durban was hard pressed by the Boers  in 18-12, and its fall meant the surrender of Natal to the Dutch. Tho  nearest re-infoicemcnts were five hundred miles off, at Grahamstown. in  Cape Colony. King; alone Knew th������  way through the wild and pathless  country peopled by hostile native  tribes, and his daring ride, -which  saved nj.t. only the garrison but Natal, is now to be fittingly recognized  by iiis fellow-countrymen. With this  object an influential committee lias  been formed in Natal, and subscriptions will be received and acknowledged in England by the Hon. Sir  William Arbuckie, Agent-General ton  Natal.  ._v, ,|   , :_,_['  *'i  i if!i*<>' ':  -������������������^,.'*.-..^������. ,v,.v.-..-.-., ���������  ���������.i-^p-r.:*^-^...:.. ->���������<*���������*% '.���������  :.--.-):������ii*v>^VjJiij1!Mya_j - --jKi.t  ���������-������������������    ���������   ���������   ..'A.J A        .

NOV.,   If),   fTOOo  THE  DEEP   DIVER.  At what depth,   asks the Pall Mall  Gazette,    can  a diver carry out  his  functions?     How long can he remain  under the surface?  What  is  the died  of high  pressures on the human system? One well Kn.iwn firm of submarine     engineers  Mints the     depth of  descent to  25  fathoms,  or, say,   130  (  foot.    But  operations  have  been car- J  riel out at .gre.Uer depths than this, |  nnd  perhaps thc greatest   distance be-1  low the surface at  which a diver has  succeeded  in  working is  31  fathoms,  or -01  feet.   This   was accomplished  by   -James  Hooper,  who descended to  tlie  ship  Cape Horn,  sunk off Pit-hi-  darisjuc, South  America,  and sustained a pressure of SS_  pounds on ������vcry  .square inch of his hotly.  Another  remarkable  feat  was  that-  of Alexander Lambert,  who recovered   ������70.000  in  gold  coin   from       i,hc  sleamship      Alphonso XiT.,  sunk  oh'  'Point Gando,  Grand Canary, in nearly   30 fathoms  of  water,   the actual  dcptii of tho    treature room being 20  2-3  fathoms,   or  100  feet.    This  man  also   performed -the  daring  feat       of  slopping     the flooding of the Severn  tunnel  when   a door   in the  dra'jnagoi  tunnel had  been left open.   The door  was situated a quarter of  a.milc distant from  thc shaft, but equipped in  Ins  diving  dress he crept that     distance through a narrow passage full  "of  watci" and  closed  the  door.    This  plucky act enabled the pumps to Over  come the volume of water  which* was  flood rig the working rand  allowed ths  completion   of  the   tunnel   to  be carried  out.  A   further   interesting  case  or deep  'diving , is    that of Angel Erostarjic,  -who     succeeded in  recovering silver  bars valued at ������9,000 from the steamer Skyro, ,sunk off Cape-Finis*, ci're  in  aver  thirty fathoms of  water.  In  this    case the (l'ver  had "to     blow  away     portions of     thc vessel   with"  ' dynamite,  before he could  reach  the  . treasure  chamber.    Three   dives    per  diem wcre 'frequent, and as many as  Jive  descents were made in  one clay.  The     maximum period under  water  ���������was  twenty minutes.  The -effect of high pressure on  thc  constitution     is not found  injurious  when the  work is carried   out, under  ordinary  precautions.   A French tcicn  tist has gone so far as to claim that  Lreathing  suppressed air  is a remedy  for asthma and emphysema. Itis also  said   to excite digestion,   owing    to  the  great quantity  of oxygen carried  into     the  blood.    It has  been  found  that  a   period   oT   two  hours  should  elapse .between a meal and a descent.  In  descending the     movement  should  be slow,   and  if    the pressure  cause  pains in the head this! can be remedied by rising gently a. few feet, when  the descent can be re.continued.  Tn.ascending divers '   are recommended not  to   exceed      a  speed of  two feet per  second.  The confidence of the public is growing great-  Z er.

To win this  trust a mother's correction should never outrun her love, and she may well  inako" it a golden maxim never to let  the sun go down upon her wrath.  If a child once feels that the day has  gone by with a loss or lessening of tlio  mother's love the influence of tlie mother for good-is dangerously weaUcneu;  .a link is snapped in the chain of truthfulness and a precious idol is iu dauger  of being hopelessly shattered. Undue  harshness is one of those irreparable  errors we arc sure to regret. Mothers  should therefore temper their * reproofs  with love.

In Rurmahi  even, a European, meeting the  King in the   street, has been  obliged  there and then, to  take   off  his   boots;   ami   in  Persia everybody  approaches the Shah barefooted.

The. depth of the river and ihe necessity for keeping this great waterway free from obstructions, prevent  the use* of piers, and can for bridging  with a single span.
