NELSON, B.C, SATURDAY, JULY 8, 19C5.  f'pJ.  ' yj.  END OF  THE WORLD!  A Variety of Pleasant Fates  Forecasted.  Many and varied are tlie fates which  have been foretaded for the world by  those who havo achieved fame in tlie  realm of science and discovery.  Loid Kelvin believes that in 334  years all..human beings remaining in  the world will be suffocated hy tbe Im k  of oxygen to breathe. Tlie great  scientist bases his assertion on the  ��� grounds that, as every ton of fuel  Hmrnide consumes three tons of oxygen,  the world's supply of the latter must  give out in the years mentioned.  Though this would certainly be an  unpleasant end to this planet of ours,  a far worse fate is that argued hy the  famous American scientist, Nikola  Tesla. i It is, of course, a well known  fact that the earth is surrounded by  vast currents of electricity; and the experiments made hj* ba-lloonists above  the clouds prove that these'currents  arc of a density impossible fur 'human  beings to fa.honi. Mr. Tesla therefore  believes that at some, future age thia.  electricity will suddenly-. burst into  llame, and so-terrible will be the heat  that .in,lthe apace of a few seconds the  earth tuid those who-" inhabit it will  crumble away to dust.  M. Flamraarion,  the  great  French  astronomer, has calculated that in the  twenty-fifth cei(iury the e r h"'will .be  wiped out by a collision with the comet  Beila, tlxe proximity of which to the  earth ai few years ago caused so much  uneasiness.     The size of the comet in  question  is sueh that it could in   collision destroy a-world-sevcral times the  size of .ours without  much damage to  itself.      Jn   addilion   to   this startling  prediction   M. Flainniarion   has lateen"  pains to discover that the shock ol" the  collision- would   be equal' lo  tliat   between two express trains, travelling at  tho rate of 805 miles an hour, which no  living   thing on   the earth,   however  small, could survive.      ���'-.-.  "Aa  even more  fearful  fate is  that  prophesied   by  the Spanish  scientist,  Senor ltigielto.     Fifty-six years from  the  present time he believes  tliat the  world will meet   wiih a tragic  fate" by  collision with two combined coiistolla-  alibifs, such a comijitiaiioii, in fact,'as  __was.:.noticed, early.:in_March of 1this  year.     The effect of these planets being so close  to  the earth would   be   to  dest.oy tlie .jasas wh c'r aus'...in .iiinan  life, and, although  millions  would  be  killed iti  thc space of a few ln.uis, he  unguis that the remainder will livo for  u<short time longer in a state of madness   caused   by  the   rupture of   tie  earth from its orbi'.  Thc food scare has been more or leas  a topic of universal comment for some  years past, and Sir William Crook* s  believes that it will be responsible io:  the end of the human race within 20  year's from the present time. D.ning  the past 31 years the number of thu  world's bread-eaters has exactly  doubled, and ifaproportionateincrease  , may be expectedduring ensuing j ears,  some clever' people believe lhat Sir  AVm. Crookes' augury may come true.  Jn 30 years he calculates that the  amount of bread require.! will be  greater than the world .can supply,  even supposing tliat it is almost entirely tinder cultivation. The moral of  this would seem to be thut we ��mi��t  find a new food���and that quickly.  Two famous novelists who have become well known fur their s-cientilie  works, have foretold grue.-ome fates  fir the world. One of these, the late  Grant Allen, believed that within four  centuries the weight upon the world's  crust would become so great tbat the  world would be no longer able to support it. The result would be that the  molten lava, of which the'interim' of  and, forming in enormous lakes, slowly  spread  over the earth, destroying all  life that came in its way. !  I  PI. G.

This is the first  year the  seniors have pursued  the policy of filling up their team with intermediates,  and the result, of the match last Satur-  day has shown   the wisdom of   the  change.     In  future,the. intermediates  will.work with  the hope of getting a  place on the senior team, and this will  be aii  incentive for. constant practice.  Besides it arouses more  local interest  in a match when "all  the players: are  known  to the., spectators.    .That the  Cranbrook team  was stroug   no one  denies, but it was composed of players  selected from the various towns along  the   Crows   Nest, and   itwas   noticed  that many of the players.did "not even  boast of a speaking acquaintance with  other members of the team. , Notwithstanding the fact thatNelsoli was playing against this composite team, they  had the game.all in their own hands  until the  last quarter, the score  then  standing four to two in favor of Nelson.  In'.th'e.last quarter' Cranbrook '.played  in  good  luck and  was able .to score  twice,   thus  making   tho result  a tie.  Joe Thompson   was everywhere, and  never  failed   to   get the   ball.   -.The  brothers Jclfs played with all thejr old  time determination and vim.

Cursed���or perhaps one should say  blessed���with  a  stroug  aversion   for  manual labor and possessed of an In-  thirst for knowledge, William  Singleton has gone through life dodging work and picking up information.  At 01 fame has been  thru:-t upon him  and he has been acclaimed throughout  England   ' as     the     " Encyclopedic  Tramp."   His   renown came to liim  unsought through a brief incarceration  in^Knutsford jail, where he had been  confined for committing the heinous  crime of existing without any ' vislbli  means of support."  The.police found In his possession a  couple of memorandum books in  which, in ; encil, be had recorded ?a  vast amount of statistical informtit'o:i  and out of the way facts. He said that  he had, hidden away; something likea  score of similar volumes in which be  had jotted down all sorts of scraps of  information that he had gleaned in the  course of his wanderings. He haaa  profound and thoroughly catholic  reverence for facts and figures. ��� ���  In the books which were subjected  to police scrutiny were noted, among   other things, the exact heights of the  world's greatest giants and smallest  dwarfs; the days and hours at which  all the great institutions of Londoil  are open free to the public ; the height*  of the largest monuments, the spans of  the biggest bridges, the population of  world's biggest cities, the number of  letters in the Bible���3,671,489, according to tha. tramp���tbo-ocenn- record of  every liner, and the time occupied in  conveying the mails from one part of  the globe to another.  He was not content with merely  cribbing facts. On one page he had  worked out a calculation from data he  had obtained, proving to his own satisfaction at least, that every trip of the  Oceanic meant a return of $35,000. It  illustrates the diversity of subjects in  Which he took an interest that on the  next page he noted that London consumes "7,133,114,770 gallons of water a  year, and had left a blank space following in which to record, when 1 e  was fortunate enough  to come _across   the information, how much it cost to  satisfy her thirst for stronger  drinks.  Singleton picked up most of his information at free reading rooms, which  he always visited at whatever town 1 e  sojourned, and he has never waste I  any of his time on fiction. In fact, Le  confided to the police that bethought  peoplo ought to be sent to jail who  wrote books about things that we.e  not true or else be compelled to take  out licenses for lying ami thereby relieve the burden of taxation on the  poor.  It was found that most of the facts-  the queer fellow hud gleaned he hud  committed to uio'iiory during the intervals of leisure lie enjoyed between  his foraging or begging expeditions for  meals. Though he asserted that h.  valued knowledge for its own sake, he  confessed that he frequently contrived  to convert it into cush.  Familiarity with railway speed records had often earned him bread and  cheese. And once he had made a con-  vival swell treat him to a regular blowout by proving that his notions as tothe relative size of London and New  York were erroneous. He says that he  ought to have Inherited wealth and a  title. Then loafing would have involved no disgrace, aud as an "encyclopedic peer" he would be regarded as a  credit to the nobility.

C'  EDITORIAL COMMENT.  _**. J. Deane has returned from the  Ccast, ar.d now the assassination of  John Houston   may be expected to  proceed  with the  dignity such  an  event should inspire.      It i.s understood that during his absence at tlie  coast  Mr. Deane   has  carefully investigated the latest and at the same  time safest methods of assassination.  He  interviewed  several expert assassins, ai;d finds  that in this as in  other branches of science there is a  wide divergence of opinion.   Everyone  interviewed,  however,   agrees  that the  old methods  ot  guns, revolvers  and swords  are  no longer  ���desirable.;       These   weapons   are  neither sure ncr satisfactory in Reii-  eral results.    The razcr ir still held  in high  esteem,but only with   the  colored  race,  which  precl-d.s  i s  employment   by* the   editor��� _f   a  highly respectable -newspaper.   The  ".Latin races c-xpicss a niaik.d   pre^  Je'-'ence for  the stiletto, but   it is a  so'tnewhat difficult matter to procure  a stiletto these days.     The preponderance of orinioti is  on tbe side of  poison���seme inclining  to  strychnine and others to  arsenic or prus-  6ic acid. '    A* few believe iu chli.ro-  fcim  where the desire is to make  the final dissolution painless, which,  of course precludes iis  use--in  the  case of Mayor   Houston.      In the  event  of   poison   being  employed,  the next question will  be the  best  means  of  administering    it.      On  this point also there is a wide divergence of  opinion ;   but   the mode  more generally in vogue  is the im  pregnation  of cai.dy with arsenic.  Mr. Deane, while he inclii.es somewhat to  this method of assassination, feels that it  is  lacking in oii-  Tgiual i lyTafidToresees" t her di fii cu 11 y  that-might arise in. securing  Mayor  Houston's  hearty   co-operation   to  the extent of getting the latter to  ��eat the candy.    While there is reason  in   both  objections, il is quite  probable that this, will he the procedure   finally  'determined   upon ;  although it would   be just like'the  mayor to exercise his prerogative of  a thirtv-day veto  and  thus  at  the  last moment upset all  the .prii.jslak-  ings  arrangements  tb.it have been  made to secure for him as   peaceful'  and  expeditious    a   takinjj-off   as  could  possibly   be devised by  the  best qualified experts  in their line.  Of one thing, however, ihe  public  can rest assured, lhe  ascas-itiaiion  of John Houston will be carr;ed out  in a   .manner   that- will   reflect the  highest credit ou Mr. Deane and the  great   paper   with which   he   is associated. -  $545'456.��5 3. being an average or  S3-.**5 Per every man, woman and  child in the Dominion.

PRESS'COMMENT.  General Manager Stewart of the  Sovereign Bauk of Canada. Montreal, and one of the leading financial  authorities of the Dominion, is  quoted as saying: " Ih actual  money in the 1 auks there is probably r.o rati< n in the wcr'.d ibal  outstrips Canada.

AH.er.ni will now take the place  of Mniichuiia, as .the field where  the warlike op.rations of two great  political parties will be watched  wiih absorbing interest by the  people of British Columbia. Both  candidates are fc.ood men, and both  sides will put up a stiff fight. The  odds are, if anything, in favor of  Mr. -Manson, the Conservative  candidate, vvho is widely and favpr-  tably known, not only in Nanaimo,  but all over ihe Island.    '.

Were this a political papor. we  might ask why the Liberals are contesting this constituency. As it is,  we will content'ourselves with wondering. The Liberals have been  \ cllii.tr themselves hoarse about the  presence of two Socialists in the  House���put there by the Libersls  themselves ���and their own papers  say that, it Mr. Manson is elected,  the alleged strength of the Socialists  will be broken. Then why, in the  name of patriotism, don't they let^  liim go in by acclamation ? He  will go in anyhow, and it would  save a lot nf expense. But what is  the good of talking common sense  nr patriotism to a Liberal ?
