ROCKEFELLER LOSES HAIR.
New York, March 28.—John D.
Rockefeller, the richest man in the
world, is as bald as a billiard ball.
His hair, mustache and eyebrows
have vanished within a comparatively
short time. "Alopecia," a rare disease, about which medical men know
but little, is responsible tor tbe affliction, which is supposed to be the result of nervous dyspepsia.
Rockefeller's hair has been abundant, except on the top of bis head.
Not long ago it  began  to fall out in
Richardson, one of the defeated candidates, and makes charges of bribery
and corruption.
WHEAT FOR SOUH AFRICA.
Portland, Ore., March 28.—The
British ship Inchrape Bock will clear
today for South Africa with 88,520
bushels of wheat. This will bring
the wheat shipments, flour included,
from Oregon and Washington ports to
a total of over 1,000,000 bushels, which
is the largest South African business
ever handled from the Pacific northwest in a single season. It is probable
tbat another half million bushels will
be sent to Ihe Cnpe of Good Hope before the end of the season. The primary cause of the large increase in
shipments to South Africa is tbe short
wheat crop in Austral1!:.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Re^oi irces.
The City of Columbia is 'situated
near the junotion of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty In not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright', sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees aud surrounded by mountains, forffiing a charming- combination of pioturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
In the center of Columbia, and the
Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the |oorporation, thus giving
the oity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paoifle railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there Is an extent »f fertile agricultural land, part of whioh is now being cultivated. I
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be prooured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality oan always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
oity of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfeot plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine olimate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will

Kimberley, Cape Colony, March 28.
[—Probably no other place iu the
! world shows more genuine and uiore
1 sincere s (jus of mourning for Mr.
j Rhodes than the "Diamond City," as
Kimherley is termed.
The stores are closed, the flags are
half-masted, the offices of the De
Beers company are draped in black
and al! tbe mines have closed down.
Arrangements have been made for a
memorial seryice March 30th, and a
special delegation of citizens of Kim-
berley will attend the fuueral ot Mr.
Rhodes al Capetown.
Mr. Rhodes "elected the spot where
he desired to be buried, aud instructed
an architect about the memorial to be
erected when he last visited Matoppo
Hills. The place of burial is beneath
a natural cairn of giant boulders, on a
«opje adjoining that on which Major
Wilton's little force made its last
stand. The memorial to be erected
will be a prominent feature of the
striking landscape.
The date of the interment of the
body is doubtful owing to the necessity of the construction of a . special
carriage road from Buluwayo. At
present there is nothing more than a
bridal path.
