Amongst others will be tho  Clara Mathes company, whose visits to  Nelson are always looked forward to  with so much iuterest. Harold Nelson  will also appear here early in the  month. Mr. Nelson has added "Quo  Vadts" to his repertoire, and promises  a splendid production of that great  drama. There will be many other  attractions later on in the season.  TICAL GOSSIP  Playgoers will be glad to learn that  Mr. Ban Leno's health has much improved. Despite his present satisfactory condition, however, we understand that he will not appear at any  variety theatre this season, but there is  every probability that he will take part  in Mr. Arthur Collins' pantomime at  Drury Lane, in which he will play the  title-role, that of Humpty Dumpty.  e.ws of the  ines  That Poplar Creek is destined to become a permanent mining town is absolutely certain.

A short time ago  there were about a thousand men' in  the hills in tbe neighborhood of the  camp, and when spring opens up the  number will be increased \o several  thousand.

The Economist has never pressed its claim's to  the distinction'of being regarded a prophet, but it  must be confessed, even by Aid. Irving, tbat this paper guaged the situation faiily -well last -week when it  expressed the belief that the parties would be so  evenly divided as to render a coalition necessary;  otherwise one or other of the parties would be at the  mercy of the Socialists. The Conservatives have  undoubtedly, the advantage of the Liberals in the re-  turns, the figures being : Conservatives, 22;'Liber-  rals, 18 ; Socialists, 2. Should it happen that, the  recount in Fernie would give that seat to the Liberal, the Conservatives would then control only'ihalf  the House, and in a minority when a Speaker-was  elected. Some of the more sanguine Conservatives  express the hope th at ~Mr. McBride" will succeed in  forming a combination with either the Liberals or the  Socialists, so: that when tbe House meets he will be  able to carry on business. To this idea the Liberals  are opposed. They say the Conservatives have had  their chance and not being able to make good should  throw up the sponge. The people who are uot  strong on ptrty would like seme solution of-the  problem that would obviate Hie necessity of-another  election. How that can. be accomplished with credit  to all parties is rather difficult 1o make out.  dropped by the wayside, but not John Houston. He  kept on sawing wocd, to use his favorite expression,  and with his band of faithful followers, succeeded in  not only saving himself from defeat, but winning by  a handsome majority. No matter how unreservedly  one may condemn his methods, it cannot be denied  that there is something admirable in the grit and  generalship he displayed under the circumstances.  A week previous to tbe election he saw defeat staring  him in the face. His committees were working in a  half-hearted way, parading the streets with funereal  expressions on their faces and accepting defeat as  the logical outcome of their canvass. Mr. Houston  stopped his campaign sheet and took hold of the  work himself vvith the result which was recorded last  Saturda3r. There is a lesson in this if his opponents  only take it heart. So far as this paper is concerned,  it opposed John Houston before his election, it is opposed to him now and will remain in opposition to  him to the end, but it cannot help admiring his ab-  no Ttnally developed nerve, and no confidence is violated in admitting that many of his most uncompromising opponents feel the same way about it. Mr.  Taylor, on the other hand, was too confident. He  did not seem to realize that in Nelson there are a  large number of Liberals who place friendship for  John Houston above party considerations.  L  p,  ocal and  provincial  Rev. R. Boyle, Ashcroft, has accepted  a call to the Presbyterian Church at  Ladysmitli.  Many strange things happened in the recent elections. Conservative Victoria broke away from her  former allegiance and elected four Liberals. Among  the Conservatives who were turned dowu wereHon.  A. E. McPhillips, ex-Mayor Hay-ward, and Harry j  Helmcken,, who   was supposed to  be  invin-ibk- in  -   . -   I. - .  -   - - <a< I  this once'Tory stronghold.    Local issues no doubt  conspired to overthrow the"= Conservative candidates  for.-Victoria.    Equally extraordinary was the result  at Vancouver,    There  five   Conservatives   were returned with majorities so large  as- to'even  surprise"  the  men who were elected.    Even   Joseph  Martin  went   down iu  the   storm  of Conservative ballots."-  There were surprises in other places as well    No onej  surmised that Cariboo would   prove  recreant to her  time-honored traditions, but she did,  vvith the result'  that Messrs. Rogers and Adams were beaten by two  men who had not been: heard of before in provincial  matters.    The defeat of J.   M.

IVirier, lias .been the scene  of 'eisli'uwvo. dcvelopiiit nt this -'summer.  But one ofthe greatest surprises to the Lfberals,  and inany Conservatives, was the election of John  Houston in Nelson. Three days before the election  many of Mr. Houston's friends practically conceded  his defeat, but-some mysterious influence in the  forty-eight eight hours preceding the election turned  the tide in favor of Mr. Houston. The Economist  has no explanation to offer for this change, and does  not believe that it would be perforating a public service by giving the views of.others on this point. Certainly Mr. Houston fully justified tbe claim so often  and so persistently put fprtb "by himself and his  Iriends that he is first, last and all the time a "practical politician." .Inasmuch as this paper would have  to acknowledge defeat in the event of the election  of either candidate, it is not going to play the.'role of  the cad by attempting to detract from the glory of  John Houston's victory. Tills must not be taken to  mean that Thk Economist ls prepared to medify its  views with regard to Mr. Houston's methods ;-if is  simply a tribute to the genius of the man who when  he .wants ai^thing never ceases until lie has accomplished bis object. John Houston fought the most  disheartening battle of any 'man before the people in  the recent election. Confronted wiih a split in the  part3" for which he was running, handicapped by the  weight of a man who had proved false to the trust  reposed in him as president nf the Liberal Conservative Association of Nelson,'and having as his opponent a man who was his superior on the platform, Mr.  Houston never flagged in his determination' to win  the  election.    Most   ineii would have  faltered and  Of all the candidates who went down to defeat in  Saturday's election perhaps none accepted the situation more philosophically than Hon. A. E. McPhil-  lipps, the attorney:general. According to a coast paper, when...interviewed regarding the result,- he said,  that if wasbutolie ofthe fortunes-6fVar,*"and~ that he  was by 110 means loath to,drop-,out of politics and to  devote his attention to his practice, which had suffered much because of the time occupied in his legislative duties. He regretted that the results had not  been more definite, so that one party or the other  vmight carry on efficiently instead of perpetuating the  -���unsatisfactory condition of things which have  hitherto prevailed.

Charles Wilson would succeed to the office made vacant by the defeat of Mr. "McPhillips.

The escape from deatli of Captain En-  gc-llandt of the German iron sailing vessel "Erndte " news of which ia reported,  from Dantzie, will hardly find its equal  in the annals of life-saving. Tlio "Erndte"  left Mom el with a cargo of timber  on April 1G. During the next two days  the vessel was exposed to a very rough  Eea, -which kept the crew ol four men at  Work day and night. On April 18, just  as the captain had retired to hia cahin,  the storm suddenly became so violent  that the vessel capsized. The crew -wen  ewepb away and drowned, and the captain -was imprisoned in the ship's hull,  the hatches having heen closed tightly  }>y the sudden pressure of the -water.  The wreck drifted along, keel uppermost,  ���until April 30, when it was sighted by  the Norwegian steamship "Aurora" off  the fishing village of Bixhoeft. The  steamship immediately proceeded to secure tho -wreck, and while thus engaged  the crew heard repeated knocks from  the inside against the iron hottom. The;  also noticed a noise resembling a human  voice crying "Help." A hole was drilled,  in the iron plates, and this wa3 hardly  accomplished, when a human finger appeared in the opening. Then Captain  Engellandt announced himself to the astonished sailors as safe and sound within the ship's hull. He said he had food  enough for three days, hut during the  last 24 hours had been compelled to-  drink sea water 'because the tanks were  empty. The Norwegian steamship's artificers were not prepared to make the  hole in the iron hottom large enough to  permit of the imprisoned man's liberation, and therefore the wreck was towed  to Dantzie. Here the vessel was raised,  and thus ended Captain Engcllandt's captivity, -which lasted twelve weary days  and eleven nights. The hardy seaman is  none the worse for tlie fatigues lie underwent. During the day he worked hard'  to make his presence inside the vessel  'known to passing ships, but at night he  slept peacefully with the water underneath and the iron roof above.  A Woman Who Could Shoot  Where Perfumes Come From.  "William E. Curtis declares that ninety  iper cent, of the 'perfumery used in the  Iworld comes from what is known as the  '���Department of Sea Alps in France, the  .strip of mountainous country which lie?  'along the Mediterranean cast of Marseilles. The soil, the climate, and tlip  ���eloping hillsides facing the southern sun.  'make this a most favorable location for  ;the cultivation of flowers, and the an-  ;nual harvest is about 0,000,000 nounds of  'roses, 5,000,000 pounds of orange blos-  isoms, 3,000,000 pounds of carnations, I,-  ���000,000 pounds of violets, 9,000,000'  ���pounds of lilies, 600,000 pounds of tube  'roses, and other flowers in proportion.  (These fiowera are mostly raised by peas-  iants, who own small farms and do. their  [own work. They sell their crop of flow-  ���ers to the agents of Paris perfumery  ;manufacturers, and train-loads an  'shipped to that city every night during  ���the season, just as milk from the West-  ;ern farms is shipped to the creameries  [When there is an abundant harvest, thf  ibuyers will- pay sis cents a pound for  irose leaves, seven cents for orange "bios  isoms,' twenty-five'cents for jasmines, fifty  jcents for violets, and similar rates foi  ���other flowers. After the day's harvest i  Idone, the flowers are dumped upon tables  ior benches and the stcni3 arc nippeo  ;close, but the leaves that protect the  i<bloEsoms are allowed to remain, because  iothcrwise they wilt quickly, and fresh-  ';ness is desirable. Each leaf contains  :only a particle of oil, and it--takes n  Igreat many particles to make an ounce.  'It requires 32,000 pounds of rbse leaves.  i��T 5,000,000 single blossoms, to make oni  ijwund of rose oil, and 40,000 pounds o!  iviolets, or 12,000,000 flowers, to make <t  jpound of the oil; and one may judge oi  | the enormous amount of (lowers that ars  '.gathered annually for this purpose when  ;it is known that blic perfumers of Pari?  ; consume nearly a- million pounds of the  [oil of flowers every year.  New Version of an Old Story.  =^=Leopold-deKRottisch*ldrHiiuliis=.speeeh.as  : chairman of the Newspaper Press Fund  ���dinner in London the other day, dcmcl-  iished-the. tradition about the way^in  iwhich his grandfather obtained advance  'news of the victory at Waterloo. According to the cui-Tent story, which even  Ithe "Encyclopaedia Britunnica" repeats,  jNathan Mayer Rothschild was present at  ���the battle, and hurried back to London  'as soon as he saw it was decided, getting  ithere some hours before the news l)c-  jcame known, and making enormous /promts by buying up stocks. His grandson  jitold the newspapermen that "the ac-  ;<rurate story would appeal to them as  Journalists, viz., that the news came  Hhrough the medium of a small Dutch  inewspapcr. The news was published in n  ��ingle line: 'Great victory of the English  '&t Waterloo.' His grandfather, who w-ius  kha owner of some ships, told Ui3 cap-  jtiuns that whenever they went anywhere  ithey were always to bring him the lutes',  'newspapers. One of!these tmslcd cap-  itahia arrived with a paper announcing  "the great victory. His grandfather, who  'believed, as they nil did now, in the ac-  ���curaey of all newspapers, immediately.  ;took the news to the Treasury, and gave  itihe information, to Lord Liverpool. He  did not tell 'him how he knew it, and his  news was scouted because the intelligence  bad arrived of the defeat of the English  iroopa on the previous day."  A story told hy tlie wife of a factor of  the Hudson Bay Fur Trading Company  allows that ability to-do a thing well  sometimes makes the "actual doing unnecessary. The woman had-been brought  iip_ in the post, where her father was  chief factor, and, like all the children  and women, had learned to use firearms  with ease.and accuracy.  My father nnd the men had gone away  to a conference with the Indians, who  had been hostile for some time, she says.  They had left- orders not to open the  gates of the fort.  It was a blistering day and the water  in the stockade grew warm. So it was  suggested that someone go to the river  and get a fresh pailful. My aunt agreed  to go, and marched out alone with a pail  in one hand and a rifle in the other.  We stood behind the loopholes of the  closed gate, saw her disappear down the  bank, come up again with a dripping  pail of fresh water, and -set it down  again as if to rest. She had barely picked  it up again when she stopped abruptly,  gazing straight nt the high grasses on  the right of the path between herself and  the fort. All eyes at the loopholes turned  in that direction, too; and there, stealing through the grasses with their war  feathers and war paint on, we saw two  young^ marauding warriors plainly bent  on mischief. They evidently knew that  the men were all out and only women in  the fort.  We could not possibly shoot in my  aunt's.defence without great risk of hitting her. If we unfastened the gate, one  of the Indians could easily have forced  an entrance while the other stopped her.  But my aunt, instead of rushing in, set  down the pail. She looked again where  the Indians had now risen boldly up directly under a solitary tree.  On the topmost branch of that tree sat  iv '"whisky-jack"���a bird of the jay family which is common round camps'in the  Northern woods. QuickCs a-flash she  aimed her rifle, "picked off" that jay as  coolly as if she had been at target practice, and then, as calmly lifting the pail  of water, came slowly to the gate, wherc-  we received her with open arms.  As for the Indians���well, there was n  flourish of greasy shoulders through the  long grass, aud the two braves had. disappeared. ' ' : ��� . -'���     -        '.  Conundrums.

It appears that in 1878 a chemist named Dan-  val was accused of poisoning his wife,  ��� and that the King, then' Prince of Wales,  anxious t.o watch French procedure, attended the trial, which ended in a sentence of imprisonment for life. Tho  Prince, who had watched the evidence  for five days, was certain that justice  had miscarried, and visited the convict  in his cell to tell him so, and enquire if  any_ remedy were possible. None could  be found, but after twenty years' imprisonment the sentence was revised and  M. Danval. liberated. The kindness of  the Prince in his hour of despair had  made a deep impression on his mind,  and when the King recently visited Paris  he addressed him a letter full of gratitude for the visit paid iwenty-five years  before. One wonders if kings know tho.  depth of the impression both of regard  and of hatred which they can almost  unconsciously make.  Polonium, the Latest Scientific  Sensation.  ���The wonder of radium is still before ��� us; and now up ' comes b  new element-rat least. new- from  the newspaper standpoint. - As a  matter of fact, says "Current Literature,"  it is quite.as old as vadium, having beeu  discovered almost at the same time and  by the same persons���Professor and  Madame Curie. Like mdium, it i3 a con-  atituent of pitchblende and has many  characteristics similar to that element.  The cause of the present interest in polonium is due largely to certain experiments recently conducted by Prof. W.  Markwald before the Chemical Congress  at Berlin. Since then the papers have  been taken up with articles making nil  manner of claims for the new element,  the most persistent of which is thnt it  will cure blindness. Concerning this element "Electricity" soys:���  Scientists as yet understand too little  of the marvelous properties of this new  element to venture more than vague predictions of what spheres of future usefulness it may fill, but it is not improbable that it may he found to perform  the present functions of the so-called  Roentgen or X-rays far more powerfully and without the somewhat cumbrous apparatus now essential to their  use. In a much higher degree even than  radium it possesses the property of shining in the dark, and although it is  known that actual particles inilnitcsim-  ally small are being shot out from it  , continually���a fact which is proved by  magnetic experiments���this 3trange substance does not seem to exhaust itself  nor to lose its luminous power with the  passage of time. Here, therefore, is a  hint, at least, of the future possibility of  a constant and -brilliant illuminant generated without heat or combustion.  ���-;���'  Polonium is more valuable than- radium, and Professor Curie himself, who  haa a chemically pure specimen of radium not larger than a buckshot and  weighing less than half a grain, would  not sell it for $20,000.  At the meeting in Berlin, Professor  Markwald exhibited a hit of polonium  weighing 15-100 of.a grain, which was  produced from two tons of uranium at a  cost of $75. He then proceeded to givu  a marvelous exhibition of the powers of  his speck of polonium. It intercepted  a strong current of electricity passing  through _ the air from the generator to  the receiver, the nir ceasing to be a conductor for the flashes. /The room .was  then darkened, and pieces of barium  platinum, and zinc-Mende, placed 'near  the polonium, glowed with a bright  greenish light. There 13 no doubt that  the discovery of polonium is a most valu-_  able one, although no one can say as ye I  ���how it can he adapted to practical use.  ^m  - ���-' Ail  vVj  '   "- ��*  Harder, than Matrimony.  ._  Like matrimony, flirting is harder than  'it* looks.

Golf is a special Scotch game.   ������  The boy.is called a caddie, and you can  Tcadily see that he is a very useful thing  'to- have about you.    He carries all tho  ���implements  of  the   game   (except  that  fourth one), places the ball for you, and  '.bunts lor it afterwards.    If you are a  particular person, the caddie can be commissioned to swear  for you.    But most  'golfers prefer to do their own swearing.  They find it useful, as an aid to Lhe real  seLence of the sport.  In putting the ball into the hole it is  customary to use the club. But, if you  can get the caddie lo turn round and  3ook at the prospect at-the critical moment, you will find it much easier to  ��hovc the ball into the hole with the toe  -of your boot.  iaadfes play golf, but Lhey never should.  .They cannot master the language of the  royal and ancient game. If they smash  a club, or get bunkered, tlicy merely observe,-"Bother'it!" ind "Bother it!" is  C* golL���"Ally Slopen's HaU-Holiday."  Odd Origin of Sea Terms.  How many people imagine that,  that familiar . word "admiral" is|  anything' but a thorough English;  word? Probably the last origin any]  would give it is Eastern. Yet its deriva-i  tioii is simply "Emir el Bagh," which -ia,'  Arabic for Lord of the Sea.  There is hardly a language that -wo  have not put tinder contribution for sea  ��� terms.- Tlie names of the various officer*  of a. ship illustrate this mo3t vividly.  "Captain" comes straight from tha  Taatia "caput," a head; but "mate" owe3  nothing to any dead language. The word  is ���a.lmbst identical with the Icelandic'1  "ma ti," which means a companion ^ir  equal. The derivation of 'coxswain"  would hever.be suspected.; Coxswain waa  originally the man who pulled the after  oar of the captain's boat, then, known  as a cock boat. "Cock boat'' is a corruption of the word "coracle," and, as  most people know, the coracle is a small  round boat used for fishing on some of  the Welsh rivers,:.,such aa .the Wye and  Usk. So coxswain comes to us from the  TVelsli. Other languages are also-pressed  into the service.  "Commodore" is simply the Italian  "Conuniuidatore,"/. or commander,- and  "naval cadet"'was. originally the French  "capdet," w-hich, going _a step further  back, has. the same origin as the word  eapfcum.- The reason of this apparent anomaly is that originally all naval cadets  were youjigrr sons'of 'noble families, who  served as ^privates';'.previous to obtaining  their'commission.  There was never such a person as  "Davy Jones," .though we frequently  hear: of his locker. One ought to talk of  '"Duffy-Jbn'ali's-'locker."' "Duffy" is the  West Indian negro term for spirit or  ghost,, while "Jonah" refers to the pro-  "phct of that nnme. '���.'"..'.  "Dog watch" is another curious case  of_a. terni gradually corrupted out of its  .original.'form.    Originally it was "Dddge .  watch," .so   described   because   it^-. lasts ;t  only two instead of the usual four.hours, *  and thiu makes it possible that the same  .men shall not be on duty every day during the same'hours.   "Dog watches,", to  called, are from 4 to G and 6 to 8 in. the  evening.       Z/Z. ;   '/���'..' .'���-:���:, ���'���".-  o iSailors call meat "junk." It fe not a  .complimentary term, for junk is. aautlcal  for a rope's end. Some 3,000 years ago  ropes were made out of bullrushes, for.  which the -Latin- word is "juncus."    :  Nowadays-we talk of "porfaiKd "starboard." Originally it was "larboard" and  "starboard." Starboard has nothing to  do with stars. It is really "steor-"board,"  .4nglo-Saxon for "stesr side," because in  old galleys steered by an oar the oar  was fixed somewhat "to the . righthand  side of the stern, and the helmsman  held the iniAard portion in his righ-,  HHbitnd.a=H=^43=ifor=iJjlrboardi"-aitTH=His��probHHH  ii'bly a corruption of lower board, th.  larboard side being originally considered  inferior Lo the other.  -.. "Sheet anchor" is the name given i,  the largest anchor carried by a vessel  It is, almost as complete a corruption a-  'dog watch." "Sheet anchor" is reall;  ���'shote" anchor, so called because it "can  from its great weight, be easily shot ou-  in ease of ejuergency.  A<m'm, "juTy mast" has nothing di  rectly to do with a law court jun  though both have come from the sam .  ;oi"iyiual word, "jour," the French for d��j  Jury mast thus means a mast put u;  temporarily���for a day���just a3 jury i>  the legal term implies a tribunal sun  ���'niOBcd for a short period only.
