Haig.m-.ikes his reports directly to Mr.  -Clute, at New Westminster.    The  inspector intends to return'   next   week,  when arrangements will   be   made   to  provide a bonded  warehouse   for   the  ���������storage, in bond, of   imported   goods.,  A warehouse for this purpose has long  been     needed,     and  , the   increasing  necessity for it has at last been   recognized by the customs authorities,   and  marks the importance   of   Hevelstoke  as a center from which    to   distribute  goods to mining camps on the. Columbia, and near-by points on Lhe railway.  All who have this class of business to  transact, and especially the merchants,  are to be congratulated upon the    fact  that the. customs   depaitmont   of    the  government1 is giving them    the   facilities  accorded   to   tlie   most favored  localities.  warehouse,' was not a warehousing sub-  port, and did not even have a customs  officer of any degree. Why wo did nol  import-, was because ir. was marie im-  po'ss.ible for u-) to do it.) What we did  import went to swell the/receipts of  towns jikii'Oi favored by thegoverninent.

The Canadinn Pacific has no ware  house at Revelstoke for bonded goods,  and has in consequence recently suffered an unusual detention of cars containing dutiable goods in bond. , Tn  answer to^he Tribune a last, fling that  the total.collections for , customs here  amount to barely-S-'iOO'per year, it is  sufficient to say'lhat'the 'receipts for  customs from the. middle of '.Slav to  the "middle of June, 1895, were $1070.

This is the outcome of  the British Columbia members' lopro-  sentations last, week.  , The above paragraph from the.  special despatches from Ottawa gives  the answer of (he. government 'to the  proposal of the Kansas City Smelting  and Refining Co., suppoiled by all the  members of Parliament, from British  Columbia, do establish a great smeller  iu West Kootenay "if a small bounty  is given on ore .treated.".

I  unusual facilities for receiving  supplies, and the dumping .ground  .slag,the Illeeillewaet liver will furnish  a magnificent water, power for all  purposes to which power can be directly applied in the smelting and refining  of ores, or, through' the agency of  electrical power, manufactured by  dynamo and conducted by cable to the  place" where used. The -volume of  water is large and permanent,, and an  unequalled power can be secured of  any desired fall. From the Clacier,  whero the river starts, to Revelstoke,  a distance of,M miles, the fall is 2(!17  ft-ct, just seven feet more than half a  mile, and for Lhe entire distance it is  continuously and abruptly downward.  The uses to which this immense power  can be applied nre unlimited. Tl could  he transmitted by cable lo all parts of  the town for manufacturing,for supplying it with electric lights, for running  its cars by electricity; iu fact for any  and all purposes for which power could  be used.  "Without any doubt the Illeeillewaet  river is the most, reliable, as well as the  most available source of water supply  for Kcw'lstoko. It has its origin  among the glaciers at the summit, of  the Selkirk's, and being added to on  its way down by other glaciers, natural  fountains and turbulent mountain  I streams, its volume can be counted on  I as always sure.

CUSTOMK    AFFAIRK    ACA 1N.  IkvoiiIIh! increase,  as    it    was  inure phi inly'manifested    than  Charles Bollard and A. R. .Murray,  who own the Last Chance mining  claim on Sable Greek in -the Lai'dean  district, conceived the idea, of making  a trip into Adams Lake, from Shu.-'wap,  thence ivp the lake and through Adams  River into Turn Turn Lake, and on  through that lake and up Tuni Tuni  River 'to its headwaters in the Gold  Range, crossing which thev would find  the sources of Jordan Creek aud follow  it down to the. Columbia ������ few ��������� miles  abov.e Gold Stream, expecting>t-o reach  Big Bend before snow fell sufficiently  to interfere with their plans. Tlieir  principal object was to prospect for  gold, in placer ai.d hydraulic diggings,  on Adams ancl Turn Turn Lakes ami  rivers, but fortunately they took a  trapping outfit aud supplies for nine  months.  They left Revelstoke about tbe first  of September, and took horses from  Shuswrin, following the outlet of  Adams Lake about 10 miles to Mie lake.  Making there a canoe or.dugout, they  proceeded up-the lake which is about  50 miles long. Adams Lake is very  much like -the Arrow Lakes���������2 to -t  miles wide, apparently a widening out  of the river of which it forms,.part. It  is a beautiful sheet of water containing  an abundance of fish. Galena float  was found in several places and quite  narrow veins of .the mineral, but no  colors of gold iu the creeks of miy  value.    ,  Snow fell several weeks earlier than  expected, and they did not. think ifc  prudent to undertake to cross tbe Gold  Range before winter should set in.  They therefore made their trapping  and'wiutei camp at the upper end of  Adams Lake.* Early in May, they  sta.rted up the river for Tuin Turn  lake, 70 to ,SO miles distant, and had  good water for 30 miles, then a portage  of 12 miles, where they ��������� built a new  canoe, then good water four miles, but  portaged the balanee.of the river,about  2"} 'miles, to the lake. Adams river,  connecting AdainsandTiun Tuni lakes,  is a mile and one-half wide,' and rushes ���������  through the canyons with turbulent  velocity. ���������  There was a snowfall of '.1 feet on  Adams lake and 1 feet on the Tuni  Tuni which is 2o miles long, and as  nearly two feet of this < remained on  the 9th of May, they did nod think best  to try crossing the Gold Range, although the Indians reported that fiom  the headwaters, ofi.be Turn Tuni rivet1,  near (.he summit, of .the mountains, it  is but 27 fo HO miles to the Columbia  near Big Bend. Besides they were  gel ting very short of rations, having  only tea anil flour, und lii tie of these.  They turned back on .Juno lo.and were  about one week iu getting down to  Khuswap, safely mid quickly running  iu Iheir canoe some of the long canyons  iu Adams river. They sold their furs  .for about $800 to James Ross of Khns-  wap.  '1 hey .found a vein of galena ore, 20  inches wide, on a stieani putting into  Turn Turn .hike frum the direction of  Seymour pass, but it is two far away  for profitable woiking.

It was the figures of what is  commonly    known    as    a " sandwich-  , j-nau," one who bears upon his sliuul-  dtrs a board in front and a board at  Ills back, which serve as an advertisement for some special attraction. This  figure, at the moment of its presentment, was, in na,c*hers eyes the oddest  of figures. The man was old, and of  r medium height, but, with his thin  face and Ills head sunk into his shoulders, lie appeared to be older than he  really was. , The two sandwich-boards  coming1 close up to his chin and to the  back <:f hip neck, gave him the appear-  ���������ouee of being not only imprisoned, but  absolutely flattened, by an absurdiy-  sbaped nnd cgrcgiously fitting stiif)cravat ; and' hi*-* hat was pressed so low  down over his l'ore-head as almost to  cover his eyes. So that, what with  the concealment below and the concealment above, all' that could really be  said to bo distinctly visible in his face  was the tip of his nose ; but it was  the point nnd character furnished by  the  ]offend    on    the    sandwich-boards  ..which imparted its odd distinctiveness  to the  figure    This legend  consisted  -of three .words :  proceeding from Henry Wyati's pupils.  " Do you think you are strong  enough to walk there/masked Rachel,  " if I come with you 1"  " 1 will try," murmured the old man.  , "You can't*leave these things here,"  said the policeman, pointing to the  boards on the ground.  " I'll" take them back," said the woman who had spoken in favor of the old  man ; and then he, clinging to Rachel's  aim, walked with her eastward. (  They had not walked far belore Rachel discovered lhat the, old man's  strength was giving out. lie paused  and said :  " You have been very good to me ; I  dent" know how to thank you. You  must have matters of your own to attend to. 1 cannot think of imposing  upon you any longer."  "Nay, ">ou are not imposing upon  me," said Rachel ; " I shall be glad to  assist j ou. I am young and strong.  Indc-ed, I shall not leave you until I see  you safely home, unless you order nie  away. 1 see that you are too tired  to  walk.      We  will  ride."  "I cannot allow it���������indeed, indeed, I  cannot !"  said  the old  man.  Hut Rachel was not to be resisted.  She called a cab, and, assisting the  old man In, told the cabman to' drive  to Ros-emaiy Court, Spitalfields. Pom-  pey trotted on by the-side of the cab,  keeping- a sharp eye' on the driver,  lids the privilege of old age to be gar-. man       "You say you have seen him?1  TIIE POOR GENTLKIAN   j  I  It mlgdit have been supposed by persons im I a miliar with London sights  that the man, in carrying this legend  writ in great letters in fiont and at  the back of him, desired to advertise  himself and his condition. For, as he  shuffled along, shrinking physically and  mentally Irom the shame and degradation of his burden', no more pregnant  ��������� figure of a poor, gentleman couici possibly be  imagined.  The time was 8 o'clock in the afternoon ; and whether it were that the  man was hungry, or that his task was  beyond his^strength, at the moment of  Rachel's coming up to him he staggor-  ���������ed, strove lo catch hold of the lamppost for support, failed to 'reach it,  and fell to tho ground. Odd as was  the'figure *n hen it stood upon its feet,  it became much odder when it lay  prone upon the stones ; .for, then its  head, in turtle fashion, shrank entirely  inward, became quite hidden hy, the  sandwieh-boaids, lhe man had borne  upon his shoulders.  A crowd Instantly gathered around  tlie prostrate form, and comments were  freely and loudly,made. These comments -forme.1 a familiar verdict commonly Gj-jouah passed with alacrity by  suuh-like London crowd's, which, as pi  rule, are not loo mercifully disposed,  in.iny of the units amnnr**"ihc-m .judgin*?  others, maybe, by their own standard.  The vei (''ict nf Hie comments was that  the man was drunk.  ''" Ho ought to be ashamed of himself,"   said  on".  '��������� He's   old  enough   to  know  better,"  said another.  "Foity  shillings,   or  a month,"  said  another. t    .  Rachel did  not know what to think.  Her' first'  feeVng  was one  of  cnmn.is-  sion :   but these    remarks   .bewildered  ��������� bcr.  " MoVc on, there���������move on !" cried n  pn]iceman. And then. ho. tn<i, looked  down mum the prostrate form as if  in the magic of his g.'ixe there was ari  elixir ���������������������������uilieleiiUy poicnt to instantun-^-  ously ir.fusp vlsjor .-.nd life Into the ir;- \ -*-iov-> ,!o  cnimat.-* body.

"Lift   the   top   one   over   his   It ad,"  rulotis,   but   Rachel's   companion   was  too   weak  and   faint   to   exercise   this  privilege.      His  words   were  few,  but  they were 'sufficient.      .And their mode  of  expression  was  sucli   as   to  assure  Rachel   that  he  was,  if not by  birth,  at least by instinct and self-culture, a  gentleman ; and as she gazed at him  she became gradually impressed  by a  curious likeness in his face to the face  of the  young gentleman  she had  met  In the room of Joseph's mother.    She  hazarded a guess.        <>  " You do not live alone ?"  '"No," was the reply.  " Your son lives with you ?"  "Yes.','  " Have you any other family ?"  " No.      My dear son is the only tie  I have in the world.'"  " Is he the gentleman who, teaches  poor children for nothing ?"  ' " You know him ?" exclaimed the old  man, in a grateful voice' It was inexpressibly sweet to him to hear his  son spoken of as a gentleman.  " I  have  seen  him  only  once,"   said  Rachel;   "but I  have  heard  much  of  him.      Is it t^ue, then ?" "  " Yes,; it is true."  Rachel thought how noble It was of  this young man���������whoso father sought  to earn a few pence by means of one  of the lowest of human occupations���������  to devote himself gratuitously to the  education of-ij'oor children, and to the  opening up to them of a higher field  of labor than was afforded by the opportunities of their birth.  " You have been in , better circumstances"?" sho <-aul,  gently.  "Yes." said the old man; "I had  once money, lands and an honored  name.

D.'Gienville Lewis, Chaplain to  her British Majesty's prison'at Shepton  Mallet, Somersetshire, England.  Mr. Lewis came acros-a tlie' Atlantic as  Chaplain to the Dominion steamship Labrador three weeks ago, and proposed to  return to his regular duties in a short  time. He took a Hying trip through On-  1 tarioj'viBitmg tlio Central prison in Toronto ; went on to Chicago, and saw the Cook  County .fail there ; then e,ist to New-York  by w.iy of Philadelphia, iu order to make  a personal inspection of the Eastern Penitentiary,' and finished up at the Tombs  Prison, New York,  Tim general impression which he has  received about prisons in the United States  is that discipline is much too lax ; that, tho  power intrusted to each individual prison  w.irden is much too great, nnd that the  prisoner's, as a rule, are far too comfortable in their confinement to make their  punishment serve' ts a deterrent against  fuLiue criminal acts.  " When I saw the Eastern Penitentiary,  in Philadelphia," said Mr. Lewis to a press  representative, *'I could not help saying  to myself, ' What a'grand home for the  unemployed !'.   The  prisoners'   ceils   were  decor.ited with clocks and pictureH, and  even with carpets, if my recollection is correct.' Many,of tiie cells had shelves fitted  up and rows of books upon them.  " The prisoners in this penitentiary are  allowud to communicate with each other  without  hindrance.    In   many  cases   two  might be recognized. It may be false  ���������shame, but I cannot, I cannot help it !  You will promise me, if you see him,  that you will not tc-11 him what I was  doing. It would wound his sense of  self-respect, and I would die rather  than cause him the slightest pang.'"  "I promise you," said Rachel. "I  will not tell him. I am familiar with  this neighborhood ; indeed, I have often  been in the adjoining room on a' visit  to a friend, and have ��������� listened with  pleasure,, to the sounds of happy voices  I have heard while your son.was conducting his evening class. We will  say, then, that I'met you by accident,  and that I asked'to be allowed to'come  and see you. There Is no haim in  that, is there ?"'"  "No," replied the old man, "he will  be glad  to  hear it."  "And if I'can he of help,'\said Rachel,' earnestly, '.'in the buying of books  for iho children, or in some other way, i  you and your son will.be affording me  a pleasure greater than I can express.  I am not very rich, but I have al.ways  which is never permittsd in an English  'prison.    I, '  A    I'EKl'KCT KTH.ANGKK, ,  was allowed to talk freely with prisoners.  If thin treatment were adopted in England,  tho prinons would soon be overcrowded."  Mi*. Lewis then described tho discipline  main lamed under the English prison system. Prisoners sentenced to two, years'  hard lahor or less had to sleep for tho first  month ou a plank bed. During the second  monfih they had a mattioss three or four  nights a week, nnd it was not until the  third month that they could enjoy the un-  inteirupted nightly luxuiy of even a prison  bed.  It v.ii-s an oiTense for a prisoner to sneak  to any ono except the Governor of the jail,  the puaon chaplain, the visiting Justices, or  the Government Inspector. IJoth the Governor and the chaplain paid separate visits  to each prisoner overy day, the ono to hear  complain's and the other to ,fiive religious  instruction. The governor had no power to  allow visitors into the prison except on  receipt of a written order from his superiors, r,  The. chaplain had power to give the prisoner religious hooks, sucii aa sermons, "Tin:  Pilgrim'H Prom-ess," or "The Saints' Rest,"  during the lust month, and alter that time  was very dirty, and the discipline' seemed  to be ��������� very lax. I heard the warden call  for one of the guards half a dozen times be  fore he answered. If the Governor of an  English jail had to call a turnkey twice be-  wouid either fine him or have him dismissed.       '   ,,  "The Tombs, in New York, was much  cleaner tlian the Chicago prison, but ths  discipline did not eeem much better. I saw  prisoners walking about together, some oi  them '   ,  wiTn,THi:irt coats off,  and many of them apitting lavishly on the  floord. Under our system, a m,in who spat  on the floor after being warned that il was  an offense against cleanliness would get  three days'* bie.tdand water forthwith.  "It also surprised me very much to see a  man with a basket of cakes in the Tombs  selling his wares to piisoners. We take all  the money which even untried prisoners  have about them, ami no prisoner, tried or  untried, is allowed to smoke undor any  circumstances. ,-���������  " The linest prison I have ever seen,"  concluded Mr. Lewis, "is that ot St.  Gillcs, in lirusseils. Its exterior ia more  imposing than that of tho, King's palace,  near at hand. The ofiiceis are a fine-looking  set of men an 1 wear fine uniforms, which  set them off and give them dignity. Tlie  prison chapel is arranged with a separate  box for each prisoner, bo that lhey can all  see the chaplain, but cannot see each other.  I asked if many of tho priuouer.s wero there  as the result of drunkenness. The Governor  told me that tlu'H cause of crime was very  rare in his experience, and prisoners sent  there on account of it were nearly always  either Englishmen or Americans." ��������� <  Mr. Lewis says he has been eleven years  in orders, graduating an M. A. in Durham  University and receiving his theological  training in St. Heos. lie was formerly  senior curate in St. Mark's, Obi Street,  Loudon, and before that was a curate in  lTeeda. ,<  ������������������������ ���������  PUNISHMENT BY THE KNOUT.  f*  Much  I'lo^ifiOK  .lloru   ������ovcre   Than, Any  ii 11 h ii h O r<l I ii n ry Vat.

DPPORTUKITY IH CHINA,  ,    GREAT CHANCES FOR FOREIGNERS  IF VICEROY LI HAS HIS WAY.  The Work thai Will ICe 1'nIIciI Tor in Itnll-  roail ,-nul Tele^rnpli IJulIiilns mni Hie  Iteurx-iiitz.iiioii or tlie Army ami Xavy.  The great subject' ��������� among Europeans iu  Shanghai ia the opportunities that China  will oiler should the Viceroy Li be' able to  carry out the projects that he has had  in miud for several years. It is known that  for ten years the Viceroy has sent frequent  memorials to the Throne urging the improvement and reorganization of the army  and the navy, the purchase of proper arms;  the engagement of-competent foreign officers, the placing of all the great departments ou the same footing as the customs  ��������� service, with a foreign officer at its head,  , the buildiugij 'railroadsand telegraph lines  and many othi������r schemes, which, had they  been adopted, would have revolutionized  , China  and would  have made  the present  war impossible.  ��������� ,    In all 'these schemes   the Viceroy   was  antagonized by  Wing Tung Ho, tho   Emperor's tutor, who until recently had bound-'  '   lees influence over, his pupil. The Viceroy's  memorials were pigeon-holed, and it  was  only when   things came to  a  head, after  , the degradation of  the" Viceroy last year,  *     that Li was able to present the facte to the  Emperor  and' to prove that he   was   not  ,   '   responsible for the failure of China in' the  war.    The young Emperor  then  promised  ,    ', that he would put no obstacle in tbe   way  of the Viceroy, and when the peace ratified  and China has  arranged to   pay the   big  indemnity we may .expect   to see  theiold  Viceroy, begin' * ���������'  THE   HERCULEAN TASK  of furnishing an honest And efficient administration of the great, departments of the'  Government. '  In thisl:work  Li  will be   forced to  call  ,npon  foreigners, and English  and Americans will be those  to wnom, he will  first  ���������     turn.    Sir Robert" Hart is the best known  instance of what an honest and efficient  European may do in administering an important branch of the public service in an  Oriental country when he is allowed to have  , '"a free hand, It is over thirty years since  " Hart first took hold of the customs service  of China. It was then in the same .state  of corrupt inefficiency as a dozen other  departments are now. He organized it on  ���������the lines of the English service,'and he  insisted so strongly upon honest aud careful work that he soon had his department  as well conducted as any in the world. Tlie  great opium revenut would have'furnished  rich pickings for corrupt Governors,' but  Sir Robert saw to it that these peculating  Chinese officials had no chance to levy on  the receipts or to "squeeze" an importer of  goods.    This   work,   of    course,    was  not  '> done without frequent,attempts at interference on the partof high Chinese ollicials,  but Sir .Robert would tolerate no meddling  ��������� * in his department, mud tho large revenue  which he was able to turn over to the Government was the best proof^of tho value of  his system.  " 'No othei foreigner has ever enjoyed the  privileges accorded to Sir Robert Hart.  Whenever a.European adviser has reached  any prominence he has met the fatal opposition oi the^ palace coterie, ������r,d his powers  have'been so seriously impaired that he  could do nothing, and, to presarve his self-  respect, he has beau  FORCED TO RKSION.      *���������*"  This has occurred so often that men of gen-  . uiue ability would liave nothing to do with  ,.    the Chinese service, no matter how large a  salary was held out as an inducement. The  proof oi this was seen in the mere handful  of foreigners who were in the Chinese service when the war with Japan broke out.  v. .Major von Hannecken  was a fair   specimen of those men whofi through the favor  of some Governor of a   province,   had been  retained as foreign  advisers.      Von Hen-  neckeu   actually  dreamed   that   he  could  reorganize the ariny. iu the field arid make  , it stand agaim-t the Japs.    He accompanied the  regiment of   Chinese recruits that  embarked on the transport Kowshing, aud  he was one of the small body of foreign officers that tried to induce the Chinese coin-  1  mander of this force to surrender.  It was a  bit of luck that Vou   Hanneeken's  career  did hot eud witli the sinking of this transport.    He had  the good fortune'to escape  the fate of the 1,000  poor devils who went  down wilh the transport, and soon after he  was heard from again in Tientsin,   urging  more new schemes for the strengthening of  China's army and navy.    There is no record  that he accomplished anything. Last month  the Major, evidently soro over his military  and naval fiscoos, was wedded to a young  woman of Tientsin, and gossip says that he  will take his liberal fortune and return to'  Germany. t Vou   Uannecken had  a  great  opportunity, but  it   is   doubtful   whether  anyone could have made head against the  opposition   which   ho   encountered.     His  special associate was   Mr.  Detring, an ex-  customs   officer,   who   is   now   serving as  foroign adviser of the Governor of Tientsin.  Detring was  selected as a member of the.  fir.jt peace commission which China sent to  Japan.    He had neglected to secure proper  credentials, so ho and his Chinese associate  returned with a great loss of " face."    Vet  he secured the position of  foreign  advise!  to the Taotai| of Tientsin, a  place  which  mu-jtgivo   him   a large salary.    He knows  the  customs ' business thorough!}',  und lie  understands the workings ot the Chineee ]  mind, but he seems to lack  TACT AND Jl'IXIE.MKXT.  and it is doubtful whether he will bo able  to help foreigners in tho way -of concessions.  Several English and American promoters  have arrived at  Shanghai lately, ready to  tike advantage ot any move on the part of  the Chinese  Government to construct railroads of telegraphs or to adopt any foreign  inventions.

FISHERMEN'S SUPERSTITIONS.  Llslit   on Some   of   (lie   lEy-.d-rie-, of  tiie  luhabita:;!-. or Hie Itceii.  The legends, quaint customs, and superstitions connected with fish und fishing are  many -and curioiiB. Ask a Scandinavian  why salmon'are red and have such fine  tails. You will be told that the ruddy  color of the flesh is due to the fact,that  when heaven was on fire the gods threw  the flames into the water aud the salmon  Bwallowed them. The delicacy of the  salmon's tail is explained by'the story that  Loki, when the angry godu pursued him,  turned himself into a salmou. Ho would  have escaped of Thor had not caught hnn  by the tail. S.rmona ImvH had their tails  fine and thin ever since. ���������  , Why arc soles, plaice, aud other flatfish  brown on one side and white on the other ?  The Artbs of upper Egypt give nil explanation which no one can hesitate'to accept.  One day, they tell yon, Moses, the Isrea'lit-  sh lawgiver, waB frying- a fish���������wo all  know the jews are fond of fried fish, and  they cook it splendidly. Moses, however,  had only cooked his fish ou one side, when  the tire went our, and so he angrily threw  the half-cpoked fish into the sea. Although  half broiled it came to ��������� life again.'1 Aud  its descendants���������all tho flatfish���������havepro-  served to-day ,,'  Tint rucDLiAK 'ArrjMBANCit * ' <.  of their half-cooked ancestor, being white  ou ono side aud brown on the other.  Why do haddocks carry those peculiar  black "finger marks" nesr the head ? Some  tall ua that they are a memento of the pressure of St. Peter's fingers whon he went  fishing for the tribute money. On the  Yorkshire coast they Bay the dovil once  determined to build a bridge, at Filey. His  Satanic Majesty did not start the bridge  for the convenience of the people, hut for  the destruction of ships' and *-adors,aiid the  annoyance of fishermen in general, in the  progress of the work Old Nick dropped his  hammer into ^ho sea'' Snatching at it  hastily he caught a haddock, and all haddocks carry the imprint of his black fingers  to this day.  Fishermen have queer customs. A few  years ago the fishermen of. Preston, Lancashire, used actually to go fishing on Sunday.  It seems incredible, but they did, A  clergymen of the town used to preach  agaiust this Sabbath desecration,' and pray  that they might catch no fish. And tliey  did nol. But they found our, how to make  his prayers of no' avail. The fishermen  ucod to niake'a little efligyof the parson in  rags, and put this small "jjay" up their  chimneys. When his reverence was slowly  smoked and consumed the fish bit���������like  anything. -' '  The fishermen ot the'lslo cr Man always  fe't-1 safe from storm and disaster if they  have  a DEAn wri:k on boakp.  They have a tradition that at one time "ur.  evil spirit always haunted tho herring pack  and was always attended by storms,i The  spirit assumed many forms. At last it took  the shape ot (r wren and flew away. If the  fishermen have a dead wreiii with them  they arc certain that all will1 be safe and  snug. 't      a       ,    <"  Ou tho Norfolk coast they think that  fleas and fiidi come togethor. Au old fisher-  man near Cromer was heard toaay : "Times  is that you might look iu my flannel shirt  and'soe scarce a flea���������and then there ain't  but a werry tew herrings ; hut times there  are when my shirt's alive with 'em, and  then there's sarlin to be a sight o' fish."  Flaiinel-shirted anglers, please note.  Shocking it is to' bo compelled to state  that many fishing superstitions are ungal-  lanlly directed against tiie ladies, Over  .agcinst Ross there is the island of, Lewis,  sixty miloa iu length. Ju this itile there is  bul one fresh river. "Fish abound there  in plenty,''but only, lot, a. woman wade in  the uircK.ni, aud not a salmon will be seen  there for at least twelve months. There is  a song about "Eliza's 'Tooiuies-," hue the  immortal lyric does not explain- why they  should, frighten the fish. 1 believe the  ladies deny the allegation in toco. In the  south of Ireland an angler proceeding to  fish declares ho will have no luck if he ia  asked where ho is'going to, if he area a  magpie, or " if ho is ?o unfortunate as to  meet a woman."

If- the shot  lands in the water near by it will sink the  bhip and stun everybody ou board from the  force of the explosion.  Tho, discovery is called " the Maxim-  Sehupphaus system of throwing aerial torpedoes from guns by means of a specia]  powder which starts the projectile with a  low pressure and increases its'velocity by  keeping the pressures well up throughout  the whole length of the gun." 'Patents on  the Bystem have, been taken out in the  United States and European countries.  The special powder employed is almost  pure gun-cotton, compounded with fcuch a  small per cent, oi nitro glycerine as to  possess none of tho'diaadvantages of nitroglycerine powder.!, aud preserved from  decomposition through a slight admixture  of urea. Il is perfectly safe to handle, and  can be,boaten with a heavy hammer on an  anvil without exploding.  HURLED   IT EIOIIT   MILES.    '  From , a ten-inch gun, loaded with 128  pounds of this powder,a projectile w eighing  571 pounds was thrown eight miles out to  eea. The pressures on the rods of powder were more uniform than any yet recorded, which is a most important point in  deciding the value of a high explosive  powder. Without uniform pressures, accuracy of aim is impossible. t  ' In older to observe the effect of the com-  whether solid <*: r-.tseous, at the velocity at  which the ganus o; ������ dynamite explosion are  raised, is --ever*.] million foot pounds, and  jiince an .equal pressure is exerted downward to raise the gas>ui it will be seen how  tremendous :e the force which would be  driven downward into the hold of a ship  by the explosion of Jfive hundred poundB of  nitro-gelaiine, ���������  , NO Vii������*-*KL COrLD STAND IT.     ,  No man-of-war ever built could withstand such a thock. Its sides would be  inBtantly disinpted and it would sink a  broken mats uno the waves. The explosion  of, one oi theft* huge projectiles under water  in proximity lo a man-of-war would be  equally disastious, for the water being a  uniform body, tiie force of the ' concussion  would be the same in all directions and  would strike the side of the ship like a  catapult.  Tms system of throwing projectiles is  jus,t as effici.eic.us on shipboard against  coast,fortificatnoi-iE or othcrvcss,els at Bea.  It is not hard to piedict what would happen. A inan-cil-war armed with one of  these guns woy!d be lord of tVe sea, for it  could Fiuk any ship, wood or steel, almost  as soon ut sighted, and at any distance he-  yond- the reach of the heaviest guns now  afloat.

' No loundatiou could be  built at the present etage of the military  art strong enough to' resist the explosive  force of five hundred pounds of,nitro- gela  tine.

Parrots are in many  respects, no doubt,  wonderful birds, and   to the   many storie  concerning them one has to be added from  May fair.    The particular bird   in question  was  in   the habit of callitig the   fqotman  who fed it "Jacko," aud tho correspondent  of tho Manchester livening News, wiio  tolls tho story, says that by-aud bye the  footman left, the ' establishment. Ye^rs  passed, and ho was forgotten. Oao afternoon, however, the parrot suddenly  startled the inmates oi the hou-.e by  muttering " Jacko" rapidly mm excil-idly,  as it were, in his dream*. Some one hud  the curiosity to-run to the window, and  whs just in time to bco a carriage disap-  peiiritiK in tho distance, ou whose box ;j,t  Jacko "the footman, in all the ylory o:  powdered hair. The bird, who had never  seen hnn in the guise buiore, must, it is  alleged, have recognized hnn at once.  bustion of the powder due to these little  holes bits of���������the powder were examined  which having been purposely fired m a'gun  of too small calibre, had fallen into the sea  and subsequently been washed ashore by  the waves. The holes in these pieces were  about one-quarter of an inch in diameter,  showing that, the burning surface in each  perforation had already increased eight  times.  To test the efficiency of ,the system in  torpedo service the inventors constructed a  gun ou a new model. The gun was of four-  inch calibre and threw projectiles weighing  fifty pounds, containing nitro-gelatine or  Maximite, a new, high explosive invented  by Mr. Maxim,nearly as powerful as nitroglycerine and safer to handle. The damage  done was confined to a sandbank in the  neighborhood of their works, but even  with so small a projectile sand waa thrown  aa high as a church steeple. ,  To test by a large gun the actual destructive work of this new powder would  be impossible in a civilized community. The  force of the high explosive thrown would'  be too great. It would be necessary to  withdraw to the Great Sahara Desert, the  wilds of Siberia or some equally unfrequented locality in order to aee just, what  would happen if 500 pounds of explosive  should hit something. Even in Sahara  some wandering caravan or exploring party  thirty or forty miles off might be missing  after the discharge.  A   TERRIBLE OCX.  Needed Winding-.

It will not be built up, that  ib, composed of many pieces of steel bound  together, but will consist of a single thin  steel tube about thirty feet long with walls  not over two inches in thickness, in marked  couirant with the mortars whose wulls are  made eight or ten inches thick in order to  rot oil of pressure of the discharge. The  recoil of the gun will be'offset by hydraulic  buifers underneath containing water and  oil.  Wnen the gun is fired some of this oil  and water will be displaced by the shock  ami will riae into the side-chambers bhown  in the illustration. The entrance of tho  water and oil into the chambers will so  compress the air in them lhat on the cessation of the recoil the oir will force the  water aud oil back into tne butlers and the  gun will again be iu position for firing.  Un account of the simplicity of its construction and the lightness of its walls this gun  wili not be expensive to build. j  Ho uniform are the pressures aud veloci- !  ties ootaiued that a wouderful accuracy of  1 lice is possible. It would only be necessary  to tnin the gun upon any ship sighted by  therangefinder witnin tins radiuB to insure  its complete destruction.  Tiie quantity of explosive thrown would  he sufficient to sink a man-of-war if the  projectile exploded in the water within  fifty feet of its side. At one hundred and  fifty feet thu concussion of a fivo hundred-  pound projectile would be se\ere enough  lo cause dangerous leaks and disable a.  ship.

Away to tiie left, the lovely old Arab tower  of the Giralda, with its filigree belfry and  the circling hawks and pigeons, soared to  'heaven���������the echo of its chimes, rung at  3 o'clock, having but just, died upon the  ear. The odour of fiowerB worn or carried  by the'women breathed of the south.       <,  Water sellers, crying "Agua, agua,  linipiay ' fria !" vendors of sweets and  oranges ;'newsboys with extras containing  the latest news of the performers ; sellers  of programmes���������divided by lines,within  which were to be regislorod the thrusts of  swords, the blows of spears, the wounds,  the falls���������lifted their 'voices above the din  of the crowd. - '  ,And at last the   thrilliii"   moment   had  i, i  arrived when.-the cliief municipal ofheer  hiving taken his seat where tho king sits  wliou there is one, the door opposite him  opened.

'Following came  the picadors, mounted spearmen, who wore  broad felt bats and leather jackets and  trousers, their legs���������wilh- a precaution  handed down from classic times���������being  bandaged over iron greaves ; their spears,  16 feet in length, wrapped in tow till but  an inch of the point was left visible !  The chulos next. These wsre tho light  skirmishers of .the ring, ' youngsters in  training for higher feats.   Glittering with  GOLD AND COLOKS, i  their mission wis to fly'everywhere at once  to draw of the bull from an endangered toreador. DTrailing their gay cloaks, or  flaunting them before the bull's liorna, or  making springs of murvellous agility into  the air, they were the most picturesque  adjunct of the show. .    ,        <  After the chulos walked the darlinBB"of  the populace���������the three espadas, or killers  of the bull���������whose appearance was the  signal for shouts and cries of applause, encouragement, individual remark.

And lastly, El Tiro, the mulc-  teain, three abreast, covered with bells, embroidery, aud tassels, trailinc behind the  iron hook to lie used in dragging off the  slain bulls and horses.  Dazzling iu finery, they passed proudly  around the rinc, and under the president's  box stopped to salute. A trumpet sounded.  The alguaeil, a'little policeman smothered  beneath his hat and feathers and'black  velvet cloak, who brought'up the procession  and was a butt with the crowd, caught the  key of the bull's pen, thrown down to him  hy the president. This was an official  permission tor the sport to begin. -The pro-  ���������cession went out again, leaving in the ring  the picudois 'and a few cliuios.

It is hideous,  unforgivable, unforgettable. No Anglo  Saxoii who loves the horse can look on it,  withoui. a tierce unpulte of championship  for helplead biutes, followed by one of  shame for himself for being there. The  women present, including au a mlo, the  better grade of Spaniards, hid tlieir eyes  behind f'ui.s, and sat in sick silence till the  cries of the audience arid the new sound of  the trumpet announced the carnage at an  end, The horrors they might have seen  during the ten opening minutes of the fight  were being dragged away by the jangling  muleteam, leaving, blood tracks behind  them. Men sprinkled fresh sand, the second  act was called.  And, at last, play was finished ; the bull,  gashed, pan tun;, desperate, had done his  best io make a Suvilleau "holiday. His  death-trump'-t was sounded. The espiida,  the man of doom, walked into the ring,  stopped under the president's box, and,  holding his sword upri(?ht,iiasliedhis three*  corueied plush cap upon the ground, ami  swore the bull-fighter's oath to do Ins duty  or die.

Again und again he  escaped death by a hair's breadth, Alone,  blade aloft, he templed the now raging hull  to charge, striving to get him in the  right attitude to receive the dualh-strolfe.  There was un interval of strained silence  in the multitude, broken now and then by  a grasp of relief or a cry of ciioouragenieiit.  They were not going to waste themselves  in expression, thono Spaniards, while such  good "work as that wis going on' in the  a*cna.

A New York electrician has' invented a  compass, which, if it will do all ho claims  for it, will{be of value to the mariners of  inland waters as well us to those who sail  the trackless salt wastes. It'will, ho says,  avert, all dangeis of collision between ships,  and he is trying to interest the uavy department in his device. Being an instrument for the good of mankind tho invoutor  will no doubt release all pecuniaiy claim to  it and make it free to the world.  The compass is about two and one-half  inches in diametor and three inches high.  Underneath the needle is a strip'i,f metal.  Underneath tho face of the compass is %  saucer in which a chemical is placed. The  whole is connected electrically wilh an ������u-  larged horseshoe magnet,. leu feet long,  made of soft iron bars. The poles of .the  magnet, are connected by wire with the ship's  dynamo, thus giving the electrical power.

THE   LARGEST RIVER.     ,  ('-tllitilliill >Jc������li������Klsts iYll of nn  I'lioi-ntuil  ri-e-Kl.-iciiil  River.  The largest river of any age of which  here is any uvidence in the worid, according to a remarkable geological discovery  reported to the Royal Society of Canada  at its late meeting at Ottawa, was a grea^  pie-glacial river in northern Canada. Dr.  Robert Uell, who produced scieutijc evidence of the cotreotuess of his' discovery,  pointed out that it was genetally admitted  by geologists that the continent of North  America immediately before the glacial  period stood'at a much .higher elevation  than lit the present time, umoiuuing to,  perhaps, between two and three thousand  feet. The inevitable result ot this muse  have been to change tho river sysiems  from what they now are, and to create in  the north a gigantic river draining au area  of over one-third oi the entire continent  of Xorth America and forming a drainage  bauiii seven times as large as that of the  St.  Lawrence.  The central portion of the great river  was in tho middle of what is now Hudson  Hay, iih proved by the existing depressions  of land in the north of Canada and the  great depth oi tbe centre of Hudson R.iy.  Its lower part discharged thiough what is  now Hudson Straits into Kavis Stunts. It  is also maintained that the upper half of  the St. Lawrence b-isiu, both in pre-glaoi.il  times and'also at a later geological period,  discharged its waters northward hy way  of what ia now Hudson Ray. It is nsserti-d  that this constituted one of thu main  branches of this great northern river. Other  large branches were the present Saskatchewan, the Nelson River, which rises wubI  of the Rocky mountains, tho Churchill,  largely augmented by the icveriiil or some  of the upper rivers of the M.iekeii/.ie b.isin,  and great tributary streams that came  down the present Churchill inlst, Fox  Channel, ,and Unyava Ray, any ono of  wliich must have fully equalled in size the  Mississippi of our own day.  ;  A Vengeful Lover.
