Chicago, Nov. 18.—Twenty-two gas
tanks in the big railroad gas charging station at 73rd Road street ami
South Chicago Avenue exploded today. This afternoon eight dead bodies ol employees had been removed
from the ruins, and it was said that
about ten employees werc missing.
The tanks were of the style attached
to railroad cars for lighting purposes. Eleven of the tanks exploded iu
rapid succession and were /oil iwed
at short intervals1 by the other tanks.
The lire spread among the ,'roperty
of the Peoples' Gas Light and Coke
Company, and threatened to reach
the large storage tanks of tbe company. Policemen were sent aboil "a
mile radius warning persons from
their homes. To prevent the explosion ol the gas in the mammoth tanks
the waste pipes w_re opened and tlic
big tanks emptied. Across South Chicago Avenue directly opposite the
Gas storage buildings was a large
coal shed stored with coal. This was
ignited and in a few moments the
blaze there was beyond conjrol.
When the danger ol the larger tanks
exploding had been reduced to a in illinium, Chief Engineer Eustace shut
oil thc supply pipes Irom the ruined
buildings to the large tanks. He said
'it was almost miraculous tint the
Are had not entered the larger tanks. |
For a radius ol half a mile
windows were broken and walls ot
buildings thrown out oi place. Tor
fear that the explosions might ion
liiiue and cause the explosion it the
two big tanks which hold many fact
of gas no one would venture icar thc
ruins ol the plant. Calls were sent
for patrol wagons and ambulances to
every station on thc south side, anil
a general alarm ol lire was s rut in.
At Iirst explosions many ol '.he men
employed in the plant fled into the
street. These escaped with slight in-
jurics. Persons living in the vicinity
deserted their homes and storelawi-
ers lelt thcir stores and (Iccing ivi'n
what valuables they could seize.

HIGHER EDUCATION.
Tbe offer by a Victoria citizen,
whose name has not yet been made
public, ot two scholarships open to
the province tenable lor thc third and
toiirth year of a university course at
McGill or Toronto, is a very good
sign of increased interest in higher
education in this province. One ol
out handicaps in comparison with the
older .provinces is our want ol facilities in higher education. This is not
due to lack ol enterprise, but to our
smaller population and the comparative newness of the province. Fo'r a
number of years the subject of a provincial university has periodically
come to the front and a bill was even passed by the legislature some
eight or ten years ago for a university on paper. Then there arose local
jealousies as to the proper place for a
.university centre and it must be admitted that the rivalry of the various cities for a site was duo more to
self-inlcrest than a real desire for
furthering thc object in view. Tbe
. move, however, was in any case premature, as it was necessary owing to
the demand for primary education, to
establish the more necessary schools
lor thc growing generation than to
put a roof on the structure before
thc foundations were well built.
Now, thc system ot schools in this
province can bear comparison   with
other portions ol thc continent; it is
not pcrlect, but wc believe that   thc
young people wlio pass through   thc
graded and high schools oi our cities
will    compare very favorably with
the pupils ol such institutions elsewhere,     although until recently the
courses in high schools have     been
somewhat restricted.   Recently    thc
curriculum in Vancouver has    been
extended     lo    include the llrst two
years ol a university course and    in
Victoria one year, which it is understood, will soon lie enlarged to    the
same as in Vancouver.   Manual training too, and domestic science give  a
practical    turn to the schools that
make them additionally valuable and
it must be admitted by all who have
watched our educational advantages
growing,      that tlic means pursued
have produced better effects than the
Irittcriog away ot mnncy on a "one
horsel'  so-called    university     which
could neither in its equipment nor in
the start compare with thc extensive
systems in the big centres ol population.    A gradual evolution is bringing us nearer and nearer thc desired
ed,. liowcvcr,  and   eventually        • c
shall    see   a .ntwrjjity   established.
The proper course for thc urea-limn,
seems to be to build up our     high
schools so that British Columarj.i students will be able tu take a portion
of thoir preliminary university traia-
ing here. The handicap ol expense debars many who wish to do so   irom
going from home lo one of the great
eastern universities and  we believe
lhat    lor     a present thc wealthier
Iriends ol higher education can do   a
noble work by imitating the generous Victorian ami presenting scholarships to be competed lor in thc province. It opens a higher field of usefulness   to bright young men      and
women whose aspirations might    be
chocked by thc want of the necessary
funds to prosecute their studies. Per
haps some day we may see some generous person give the nucleus ol a
fund to establish a British Columbia
university, just as McGill university
received its start. That great institution of learning was not built with
public funds, but from the gifts of
private individuals and now stands
one of the finest monuments-on the
continent to thc generosity oi real
friends of education.

board, Liverpool, lor dock extension

tirely different family, being truly an
enlarged ro0t of a creeping, twining
vine, which has a blossom something
like a morning glory. Sweet potatoes arc richer in starch than the
common potato.
JAP FACTORY CURL
Osaka, Japan, is a great centre of
cotton factories, while in Tokio
something like 20,000 hands arc cm-
ployed, says the Shanghai Times.
A large proportion ol these factory
workers arc country girls, who arc
contracted for hy agents, the contracts lasting from three to five
years. Two per cent of thc girls'
wages go to, thc agent for the whole
time of the contract, which brings
him a neat little income without any
labor. There are no Sundays iu thc
life of thc Japanese factory girl.
She toils seven days in tbe week,
with about a hall dozen holidays in
thc year, and a week at New Year.
Working ■ hours are Irom nine to
twelve a day for small pay. Children are taken as apprentices, to
whom no wage is allowed, but a
small amount of pocket money .is allowed lor their board. It is \ estimated that there arc over '1,000 children' under 1-1 years ol apje in the
cotton mills of Japan. A doctor,
appointed for the position, looks after the mill employees and if they
are ill one half of the lowest wage is
taken as. remuneration.
The population ot the world is now
estimated at 1,503,300,000.

LOOKED LIKE
A DIAMOND
J. O. Patenaude, Jeweler and expert in precious stones and A. L.
McKillop, one ol British Columbia's
best known assayers and metallurgists, - spent avery_ uncoiulorta'tpe;
day and past week; uncomfortable
through fear that ardent hopes raised in their breasts might not be
- rcaibrod and ecstatic because they
at one time felt sure those hopes
would be realized beyond the fondest
dreams ol avarice, says tho Nelson
News.
It all came about through a prospector Irom cast Kootenay. who • arrived in Nelson in the early part pi
thc week irom the east side. Tho
prospector brought with him a
stone be had lound late in the lull,
while prospecting In the mountains.
The stone had all thc appearances oi
a diamond and it was therefore with
strong hopes that its owner started
out to get it tested. He visited Mr.
McKillop who looked at thc stone
qusicnlly theirs miled.
"I do not profess to be a judge of
precious stones," said be, "but I
would suggest that you take it tn
Mr. Patenaude next door, as be is
an expert on such matters. It certainly looks good to mc."
The prospector's hopes went soaring, but he uiiicly held his rising visions of wealth in check and went
next door. *
When Mr. Patenaude was shown
thc stone his eyes danced and he al
once commenced plying the prospector with questions relative to the
formation in which the stone was
lound, etc., calculated to ascertain
whether the locality was such as
might contain diamonds.
Satisfied on that point, or at
least satislied that the lormation
was such that there was a possibility ol diamonds being found in it
though perhaps not highly probable.
Mr. Patenaude made a superficial examination ami declared that if tinstone was not a diamond it wns so
much like one that it would rekpiire
a most careful expert examination to
determine.
Mr. Patenaude called Mi-. McKill.ip
Into consultation anil together tlici
made an exhaustive -examination ol
the stone. Mr. Patenaude was soirj
to inform his visitor that while the
specimen was a precious it. ne, il
was not a diamond.
Zircon was the name by .liic'i be
designated it, a stone so nnr.y re
sembling the diamond that cvtn an
expert may be pardoned Ini mistaking it at Iirst glanjc. Ihe suiuc
While commercially valuable lo a
pertain extent, is not ol si.Mdcnt
value to make the disoovwy ~ bit
find. The stone is quite g cnu'icsity
to those who have seen   ..
'GUARDING- TREASURES
Thc thclt of the Dimsdale miniature, following so closely on several
similar outrages should lead to close
inquiry as.to the guardianship' ol
public treasures both in London and
the provinces. In many cases writes
a correspondent, an, tor example, at
Greenwich Hospital, Irom which the
Nelson relics we,vs abstracted, the
methods are inadiyjialc, and even
obsolete, and in piorc than one pub.
lie institution in London they arc
scarcely better. At Hampton Court
Palace, where outrages were recently perpetrated upon valuable paintings by Holbein and Knellcr, as well
as upon one ot the pieces ol Flemish tapestry, it was shown that only
eno warder was in charge ol the
great hall and ot the two adjoining
rooms. Other outrages Iresh in
memory are the attacks which arc
made upon a portrait in the National Collection, and during tho last
low days upon the famous "Despised
nnd Rejected ot Men" canvas in a
provincial gallery, and the thelt of
curios Irom the    Free Library    at
Clerkfcnwell. 	
SULTAN'S MANY TITLES.
A collector ol curious trifles notes
that the Sultan ol Turkey has seventy-one tljtlcs, and on the parchnyent
containing them are the words, "As
many more as may be desired can be
added to this number." Among the
titles are "Abdul Ilamid, the Eternally Victorious," "the Eternally
Smiling," "thc Eternally Invincible"
•'Pistrorlwtor ol Crowns to the Heroes Seated on Thrones," and "Shadow ol God on Earth.". _
The Shah 61 Persia has a'sfc-iany
pompous titles, among them being
"Luminous Star of the Firmament,"
"the One Star That Gives Light to
the Terrestrial Planet," "Pivot ol
thc Universe," and "the Magnetic
centre ol thc Globe."
The lunnlest title, however,, is
borne by the ruler olAva, a small
kingdom on the borders ol Afghanistan. This monarch signs all ol his
decrees as follows: "Signed and
scaled by the King of Kings, whom
all the world should obey because he
preserves lite in all human beings,
because he regulates'thc seasons, be.
cause bo is tbe father ot the sun,
and because he Is the King ot the
twenty-four umbrellas."
THE FELLAH AT HOME.
Sir    Walter    Mieville, K.C.M.G.,
contributes to the Nineteenth    Century an interesting character sketch
oi.Tthe ^Egyptian lellSh.   Ho says:.
'"Since    the   PJiaraonic epoch the
fellah has altered little; as he  was
in his,adversity, so he is an the time
ol his .prosperi'tyi-pationt,  l-fw-ajjlil-
ing, [airly industrious, good humored and healthy; suspicious ol the motives of those in authority over .hinir,
always prone to lengthy gossip;  excitable   at   times and quarrelsome,
but in general his disputes are very
short-lived and rarely end in blows,
though accompanied while they last
by violently threatening gestures. To
no   other peasantry can-the saying
'His bark is worse that his bite' be
so aptly applied as to the Egyptian
fellah." He 'has quite extraordinary
disregard lor time; and it he is call)
cd on to take a railway journey    he
makes no inquiries as to hours ol departure,    but    goes to tho station,
sfliiats down and waitye lor the train,
showing no concern, however    pro
traded the delay. - For he has a saying that 'Precipitation is Irom   Satan, but patience is thc koy ol contentment.'"    His unwavering     con
itaney to old habits, ideas and traditions is at thc root of his lack of
initiative; the spirit of progress    is
not in him, and bis race will probu-
oly never develop any theory or conceit.   Tbe large proportion ol    the
fellaheen are small proprietors, work
ing, maybe, some twenty days each
mouth for neighboring farmers,    or
employed as oveeseers by large landowners, but living, in part at least,
on the produce ol their own plots or
ileitis.   The fellah has this great advantage oyer the go-ahead, feverish
moilers and toilers ol modern cities
he is happy, peaceful and contented.  If his means are scant, his want
is    little.     Sunshine aud Iresh air,
enough to eat, and no hard winters
to dread—with these things In    is
satisfied.   His humble home is but a
hovel built ol unbaked bricks such as
Pharaoh's   task-masters commanded
the Israelites    to   make    without
draw.    With his lingers be breaks
bis course, round flat cakes ol bread,
and    dips each morsel into asauce-
piqpiante called ilukkah, composed of
salt,   pepper, mint or cummin seed,
r'oriandir-r   seed,     sesame and chick
peas'. His favorite beans, which have
uecn slowly boiled lor hours, he eats
with linseed oil or butter, and    he
but seldom- indulges in animal loud.
Dates or water melons serve as ile
rcrt, and   draughts ot Nile water,
rcpt cool iii the greyish-looking porous   native     water-bottles, are his
wholesome   beverage.   He docs not
disdain amusement, but delights in
any simple entertainment—which, no
matter what its nature, he calls   a
fantasia'—and    enjoys weird music
played on rudely constructed drums
and    tambourines,    hautjwys, viols,
lutes, mandolines, and dulcimers."
PAPER FOR
BANK BILLS
DETECTIVE RAYS.
Experiments numbering over 300,
conducted over a term ol three years
have formed the subject matter for a
communication from a well known
medical journal in London to the effect that the rays emitted by the. human body differ in color according
to the character and temperament ol
the person. Thc following particulars are given by the writer:
The rays emanating from a very
passionate man have a deep red hue;
one whose keynote in Ule is to be
good and do good, throws oft pink
rays; the ambitious man emits orange rays; the deep thinker deep
blue; the lover ol art and refined surroundings yellow; an anxious, depressed person, gray.
One   who   leads a low,   debased
life throws   oil muddy brown rays;
devotional, good meaning person,
light blue; a progressive minded one,
light green; and a physically or mentally ill one, dark green."  Thcdoc-
tor admits   that this theory is apt
to be received   wltb incredulity and
amusement,but he asserts tbat it is
strengthened by the lact that the col
or sense ol the human race was many   thousands ot years   in reaching
its present stage ol development,
o
SPENDTHRIFT PRINCE.
Prince Aga Khan, ol Bombay, head
ol a powcrlul sect ol Moharaincdnns
and a spendthrift, lias lelt London
lor Paris, and thence goes by way
of Naples   to India.
It is estimated lie squandered over
(600,000 in presents alone to his
London friends in the chorus. To
one dancer he gave $23,000 in emer-
alds.to say nothing ol many diamond
ornaments and pearls.
Another favorite he had known was
not forgotten. She drove her own carriage, maintained the manage ol a
peeress, and was robbed hy her servants ol some $.0,000 in jewelry.
The prince lived In magniliccn't style in Clarldge. Bis suite cost him
$100 a day, his dinner bill when dining alone was never less than $25,
and all his expenses were on a similar scale. Nothing like his extravagance has been known In London
In generations.
The cause of his sudden return to
India is not known.
The manufacture ol paper is always ol great interest when we con-
sidor its importance to our daily
needs, but to the average man the
paper used by Uncle Sam to express
his willingness to pay outranks all
others in value and attraction, says
L. W. Harger in Four Track News
This paper, used .variously lor money,
bonds, checks, internal revenue
stamps, etc., is made in I'ittslicld,
Mass., in one ol thc jnost perfect paper manufactories in the world. In
the eyes ol thc government it is the
perfection of its inanufeaturc that
gives value to what is known as
"money paper," and there is, contrary to the general impression, no
secret in cither the process or lor-
ruula. Reliance against imitation is
placed on thc skill required, and on
the [act that thc machinery essential
to production is costly, massive and
not easily capable ol concealment.
These, with the aids of the well
known silk fibres and the statutory
provisions against. its unauthorized
manufacture and possession, offer tho
chid protection against counterfeiting; and it is acknowledged hy the
secret service that the government
paper itsclt is a greater safeguard
to the treasury than the intricacies
of design and engraving.
Tlic owners ol thc present mill in
I'ittslicld have employed a straight-
out monopoly since 1879. Ten or fit-
teen .years ago one or two outside
firms made efforts to break up the
monopoly, but they werc unable to
conic up to thc requirements ol the
department, and one alter another
dropped out ol ^rc Held. One firm attempted to produce "money paper"
by pasting together thin layers ol
linen paper with silk fibers caught
between them, but a heated bath revealed the lact that the libers did
not form a slruclual part of the
whole.
Government paper is made Irom
the very finest Irish linen clippings,
cut, fanned, scrubbed, bleached, beat,
en and washed with great care. When
ready lor the paper-making machine
it is a mass ol snowy whiteness, anil
is churned in a mixing box, and with
water is allowed to oo/.c through a
narrow slit upon an endless belt ol
wire gauze. At this stage short
ends of many hucd threads are sprinkled Irom regularly spaced i tubes that
tlicy may become firmly imbedded in
thc body ol the sheet.
Only in money | apcr arc silk
threads used, but while the sheet is
still solt the government watermark
is pressed into the other papers.
This watermark is the simple monogram, "U.S.T.D." lor check paper,
"U.S.P.II." lor postage stamps, and
"U.S.I.H." lor revenue paper.
The government's anxiety begins
with the cutting machine, where the
paper is automatically cut Into
sheets and counted. The cutting machine divides the paper into sheets
tour times the size of a government
note and registers their nuinbec as
they fall into piles.
Expert counters in the employ ol tlie
government verily thc count. Alter
this the paper is "loll dried," being
stretched over wooden rods In a room
where steam heat is slowly applied.
Tlie paper is then plate finished, by
placing a lew sheets at a time between thin iron plates and passing
them backward and lorward under a
pressure ol many tons.
The mill, which runs night and day
is at all times under thc supervision
and scrutiny ol the treasury department, and the entire output is shipped by express to Washington.
