'       - <  NELSON, B. 0., SATUBDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1905.  NUMBER IS  PIGMIES  WILL GO BxlCK  They Have  Enjoyed Life in  London.  A late London, England, despatch  thus describes the visit of the African  Pigmies'to the world's metropolis:  i-"-We must jgo back," said .Bokani,  chief of the Pigmies now being exhibited lit the Hippodrome through  Mr. Hoffman, the interpreter.""' "Yes,  we must go back to find our- people.  For five months or ten years. But we.  will come back. I like London." '  .^ "We can always1 walk back to'Lon-  don," said quite simply Gpospi. ithe;  twenty-five-year-old belle. Others of  the little men and women seemed in-  different.-' ��� Like most natives ofa low  type,they, are yet bewildered by the  constant Aeon tact,-with civilization'.  ���They live for the moment and the only  facts of-,life are tbe eating and drinking  and*'sleeping. . The rest is "uot understood.  l In a few days the six,pigmies will te  .tj-iken to Belgium to' be se n byKing  Leopold, "and then the question of thc  "duration of their stuy'in Europe will  be settled. Col. Hai rison's contract  with the Hippodrome management  has expired and it is only a question i f  t me before he must' return his' dusky  c'mfges to the heart of Africa.  Col. Harrison, before he was gran ted  permission to bring the Pigmies away  from the Ituri forest, Cmtral Africa,  i     .        i  entered   into  an   agreement  to   take  - them back to their own country.'

"Would you like to take her away  and marry her?" asked the interpreter.  "Yes, that one, that one," he rap-  turously replied. Then for sheer joy  he danced, keeping time^to a banjo  solo that was issuing froj|fl|i monster  gramophone. j,      ��^  Armed to the4 teeth with bows and  arrows and spears, dressed'vin.* their  most gorgeous clothes, and decorated  with beads, bracelets, earrings, nose  rings, 'anklets; etcii the diiiiinutivie  warriors crossed London from the Hippodrome to. the offices of the. .Gramo-  phone Company in a four-wheeled cab..  At each'window stood an armed man  ready to guard against a surprise attack. The two women of the party  sat silent, only-speaking when spoken  to, and carrying the drums and other  impediments of their lords.  The object of the'visit when the war-  rior from the heart'of Africa .lost his  heart to the fair-haired'-English girl  was to procure suitable records of the  voices of the Pigmies'. , Once inside the  record taking chamber at the gramophone ol.lces.,the eyes of the .Pigmies  opened in absuluti-Justonisliment. They  could hrar a man whistling in the corner, but could not see liim. They were  told tiiere was no man, but they were  incredu'ou-. A council of war was  held, and then, under the direction of  the Chief Bokane, the warriors spread  themselves across the room, and  crouching forward, each with his spear  iu his right hand slowly advanced.  Every inch of the chamber was' carefully, explored, and. by means of. a  sweeping movement the whistling  gr.nnophone was encircled au'd examined. It was then taken tp pieces to  satisfy them ; but they^remained incredulous ami mystified.  Laughing songs delighted them, and  they rolled upon the floor in glee as  tlie laughter from the gramophone rose  louder and louder aud higher and  higher.

TRIBUNE  The death occurred at Victoria last  Tuesdo- of Mr. William Alfred Elliott  at the ripe old age of 78 years. The  late Mr. Elliott left England, of which  country he was a native, in September  1858, iu the capacity of second engineer  of the Hudson Bay Company's steamer  Labouchere. It will be remembered,  by old-timers that the Labouchere was  lost on her first voyage from San  Francisco to Victoria in 18C6.  Joseph Martin has uot lost his power  of attracting attention to'hlmself." His  recent speech at,Win'nipeg, in which  he advocated the formation of a third  party, has started the old politicians  thinking, and every paper iu Canada  is discussing thc project seriously. Tlie  result is that Joseph Martin is the most  talked of man iu Canada today. This  idea of a third paityis not a new one  with Mr. Martin. His friends have  known for some time that he had  broken away from the Liberal parly,  notwithstanding the fact that during  the visit of Sir Wilfrid Laurier to Vancouver two years ago, Joseph walked  arm in arm with his old leader around  Stanley Park. The question the  leaders of .the oldi parties are asking.  themselves now is, will this new party  proposal take root ? If it does, wl at  then?  The Provincial Government will be  represented at this year's exhibition of  Colonial frutt' under the auspices of  the Royal Horticultural Society of  Londju, Eng./ The Government lias  decided to go a step farther and send n  large commercial shipment of fruits',  not only to be used for exhibition purposes, but to be  distributed to various  points and sold.

To say that the few remaining readers of the Tribune were shocked last  Thursday evening when they took up  that paper is putting it very mildly,  indeed. The vilest expression of the  streets was fully suggested iu an item  that appeared ou the editorial page. . It  is perhaps the first time tbat any paper in Canada has so far disgraced itself as did the Tribune on Thursdays-  evening, and certainly the matter  should be b o lght to the attention of  the authorities. It is difficult enough"  to preserve the purity of the  family circle, without the task  being made so much more so by having thrust before the youth of the city  a paper that is even more, depraved in  its tone than the prohibited Police  Gazette.  The editorial in the Tribune last  evening, in which au attempt is made  to hold the Daily News responsible for  a dispatch sent to an outside newspaper  by one of its staff, will create no end of  amusement among newspaper workers  everywhere. If the "editor" of the  Tribune had any experience in the  newspaper business he would know  that the manager of a newspaper ha-*  no control over his staff only so far as  .relates to work on his'own paper. It  may be that the dispatch was sent out ���  by one of the Daily News employees,  but that is uo concern of the editor of  that paper. The "pathetic" attempt of  the Tribune "editor" to connect the  News with the dispatch" referred to  once more illustrates the ridiculous'  positional! amateur places himself in  when he assumes the duties of editing  a newspaper. The Tribune editor's defense of John Houston does not de  ceive anyone, and will not accomplish  tlie object ior which it was which it  was written. Nor will anyone be deceived by the cheap boast of the amateur editor. Under John Houston's  management the Tribune struck hard,  out the wounds were soon healed and  forgotten.; controlled as it is now, it _�����  lacking in every quality that goes to  make up a respectable newspaper.  Once it could claim a growing advertising patronage uud a"fair street_sale~  Now the advertisements are padded,  aud its circulation is confined to the  gutters. If there is any doubt as to  the hitler statement.it can be easily  settled hy .. walk along Vernon street  from Hall street to the Postoffice,  where hundreds of Tribunes have been  thrown into the mudholes. If the  time ever comes when the friends of  John Houston need someone fo defend  their old time leader, they will exercise  discretion in making their selection.  Tliey will not select a man who would  slobber over him iu public print and  knock him in private. They will not  be deceived by the humility of men of  the Uriah Keep Stamp.

His work over, the Duke  returned, but the lieutenant was not  with him, for he had lost his lift  through an accident lh the Arctic regions.  Now, at the very time when this accident occurred a professor In the tech'  nlcal school In Trieste, while rummaging ln the archives of that city, dU-  "*cbvered"a-manuscrlptH-bearing-=the--dat��^  1601,  and  containing an account of a  Journey made by one Pietro Querlnl, ln  1431, to the Arctic regions. Querlnl ia  not a common name, and a little Investigation showed that Pietro Querlnl  ���was a direct ancestor of the other Pietro Querlnl who lost his life ln the Arctic seas a few months ago.  "Querlnl," says the old-manuscript,  "sailed from Candla for Flanders on  board a vessel loaded with merchandise and precious stones. "When he arrived ln Flanders, he,sold his cargo and  started for the Arctic'regions. A storm  forced him to abandon liis ship and to  take refuge with.his crew ln two barks.  The wind then carried them to the  coast of  Norway,  but  on  January  9,  1432, Querlnl was again shipwrecked  near the Lofoden Islands ln seventy  degrees north latitude, and almost all  his -companions were drowned."  For some time It was supposed that  he, too, had been drowned, but ln January, 1-133, he appeared In Venice with  "ten companions/the only survivors of  his original crew of seventy-eight men.  It seems that he succeeded'In gaining  the shore atter the others had been  drowned, and then slowly made hia  way home through Denmark and Germany. .."  "Althougrh these two Pietro Quer-  lnls," says a French writer, "are separated from each other by Ave centuries,  we find the same destiny at work in the  case of each." Aiid he continues, with  a dash of playfulness: "Is it not possible that the adventurer of the fifteenth century, desiring to enjoy once  more the exciting, flays of,his youth,  actually became Incarnated as a hero  of the twentieth c-iij-fury?" . '    .,���  Is an'Instance which Elr. Hut'chirisoi.  relates:  "A certain lady dreamed frequently  of a certain house until It ha-d become*-,  exceedingly familiar to her;  she knew-  a-U Its, rooms,-its-furniture;  it Was at  wall known to her as that in which she  lived her waking life, and, like a good  wife that has no secrets from her husband, she often talked over ah the details with him, a very pleasant fancy.  One day they (husband-and wife) went  Into the country to see a house that  .'hey thought of taking for the sumn.e:  months.   They had not seen It, but the  account In the house-agent's list had  attracted them.  "When they arrived before It,  they gave a simultaneous exclamation of surprise.   'Why,' said the  husband, 'it is your dream-house!"    It  was.   The coincidence attracted them.  ^rtaeywt-ok^Uie^house.^^^^^^^_^_._______________  "In   the   course   of   their   occupancy'  they learned   that the house had the  reputation of being haunted; that several people before them had taken it  tor short terms, but had seen���or fancied  they  had  >\een���'Bomethlng,'   and  had left before their term of tenancy  expired.    H-ad these  new  tenants  not  brought their own old servants with  them It Is likely they would have had  Borne difficulty in whipping up a do-  jnestic staff,  so uncanny was the reputation of their apparently quite re-  i putable house.   The new tenants dwelt  Jin the house with all satisfaction and  ' puace through the summer months, un-  I til  their term of. tenancy came to an  end.   On leaving, husband and wife ex-  j pressed their satisfaction to the local  | agent.   'The only thing,',' said the wife,  ' 'that  we  were  disappointed  in  about  ] tha house la  that we  never saw   the  ghost.'  ; " 'Oh, no,* said the,ghost agent.   *We  kuew you would not see the ghost.'

Then the father stoppt-d smiling and  aaid with ^great gravity:  "I beg your pardon, madam, but ladies are not allowed in the monastery  I must ask you to wait outside, until  the Prince has finished his inspection."

ST seems hardly possible that a girl  of sixteen Should save nearly fifty  people f ro-m a terrible death. Yet  that is what Grace Bnssell did, who  max well be called the Grace Darling ol  Australia. It happened one day in December that a vessel was Wrecked off  the roast of Australia, a few miles  from the Bassell home. The lifeboat on  board the steamer was -lowered, but lt  capsized and the eight -people in it were  drowned. So the rest of the crew dune  to the sinking steamer. The surf ran  so wildly that no one could dare swim  through It, and there was not a house  or person In sight. The girl, who was  a -splendid horsewoman, was riding  Klong with a native servant. She  caught sight of the vessel In distress;  turning hev horse's head toward the  coast, she .started him on a quick gallop. When she reached the sea she  urged her horse Into the angry surl.  She rode boldly on till she reached the  vessel. With great difficulty she tooH  .some of the children in her arms and  put them before her on the saddle;  then, with bigger children and women  clinging to he. dress.'She'started for  the shore, gave thoue she had rescued  to the care of her servant; and returned  again to the wreck.
