S. II. Seaney has bought out the
retail fruit and confectionery business
hitherto run by J. A Macdonald,- on
linker Street, Nelson, and will* , take
possession at the end of the present
month. HiS'bus.ness here will be
closed up, and as will- be seen by the
advertisement in this issue, there will
be bargain opportunities during his
stay here.
Mi. Seaney is one of ihe pioneer
merchants of Ymir, and his departure
will lie generally regretted. He
established a business in Yinir iu
1897 in partnership with A. More-
land, whom he subsequently bought
out. For a couple of years stibso*
,|uently he was in business in Nelson,
returning to Ymir to buy out John
McCoit|iio,lale's fruit anil confectionery business, to which he subsequently added a grocery department. He
did a llouriKhing business until the
disastrous fire of the 1st, November
hist, which destroyed a 87000 slock
with the exception of about 81500
Ymirites will join in wishing Mr.
Seaney every success in his new enterprise,

Tho Xanairni) Herald prints the
following! Again that most remarkable phenomenon of hundreds of tons
of dead herring lying at tl.e bottom
uf the water occured in the channsf)
lieu- Departure Pny, and there seems
fo be absolutely no explanation for it
except that they c-iuie rushing in in
snob tremendous quantities that they
-mothered with the very density of
il' their own numbers.
That there was a remarkable run
pf herring along this channel is told
by tlie fishermen who bad their nets
set, nml in going out to gather them
in. had their boats fairly lifted out of
lhe water by the bulk of the herring
^underneath. They came rushing
through the water like the swish of
escaping stemn, seemingly gasping
„nd panic stricken, leaving hundreds
and thousands dead in their train.
For nearly twenty-four hours this
.v„s kept up, und at tho present limn
the Bottom df the channel is white
witl, (lend ii*,h, and in places to a
depth of two and three feet.
A conservative estimate of the
amount of herring killed at this one
spot anil in the course of a few hours,
Is about a thousand tuns*— almost as
lliucli 08 the amount drawn from the
harbor by fisherman during the whole
'.distill.
The action of the lish at tho time
nf their death i» as if they had previous!)' boen stupified, Those who
watched them yesterday say they
would come to the surface apparently
tired and played out, and after wig'
(ding about weakly for a moment or
:.ivo, turn over and die.
This phenomenon has occured ma
liy limes before during the herring
: mi, but mostly it ban been earlier
: !inn this, happening usually during
tho month (if January. Owing, how,
ricr, to tho tremendous quantities
liken odt by the lUI.erineii during
i lie past couple of months, it was
hardly expected that tho same ro-
• ti 11 -. would unci..' ..gain, and in fuel a
most serious question ai jih to the
possibility of depleting thu waters, so
Immense was the daily drain on the
lish supply, and the agitation went so
far that Influence wns brought to
bear on tbe Dominion government to
pass,an Immediate order iu council
prohibiting the use of herring for oil
i',il guano. This order tmly wont in-
i i i,fleet February 10th, and no sooner did the   Ashing   fleets   desert   the
harbor than this Immense killing took
plo.cn,
The local fisheries guardian last
i tening loCUI'ed a mini! er of the dead
herring and sent them over to Chief
Inspector .Sword, at New Westmin
-let, with a complete account of tha
occurrence, and it may bo that Mr.
Sword will have the fish dissected and
iinnly/i'd in an endeavor to discover
exactly what was the caitso of death,
Quaint Epitaphs of the
Olden Times.
A graveyard is tho lust place,in the
world where one would   look   for  wit
or humour, or for   ludicrous   expres-
iiits of Kcntimenl; yet much   humour
ii>   in until."red from  the spectral
white slabs of burying grounds, and
mortuary puns are by po qieafu tlie
rarest provocatives of merriment.
^specially amusing is it to trace on
the old moss-grown nnd weather-,
beaten tombstone,; of Xew l-hiiflanil
the (plaint apd characteristic ...arks'
of the simplicity of early times. |n|
tl.e days of the Puritan forefathers, if!
a deceased person had  been elevated
to (III olliee SO honourable   to   himself,
and sn imposing in tlie eye of  foreign
nations, as  that   uf  deacon   uf   the
church, first .selectman or tqwn clerk, |
the   fact   was   en,hit,zoned   on     his
his tombstone.   If the dead man had I
enjoyed the majesty of a captain    in
the militia or  justice   of   the  peace, I
surviving relatives   never   failed   to
mention it,
Many iinoieiit gravestones aro
sprinkled With moral . reflections,
warnings and pieces of solemn advice
as though tlie monuments of the dead
were to bc the constant study uf the
living! A oitiaen of Woolwich,
Maine, left at hjs death a testament
tary order that iheso familiar lines
should be inscribed on his tombstone;
Youthful reader, passing by,
,\s you aro now, so once was 1;
As 1 am now, go you must be,
Therefore prepare to follow u,i"!
Tl.e "disconsolate widow" of the
author added this couplet;
To follow you I um not content,
Tntil I know which way you went.
It is said that tho unhappy won,an
was reluctantly persuaded by the
clergyman .of tha village to have these
two lines removed niter they had long
adorned the tombstone.
On the tombstone  of  a   married.
w on.an was inscribed this dubious
compliment to her "lord and master":
.Maria, wife of Timothy llrown,
aged eighty years. She lived with
he. husband fifty years, and died in
the confident hope of a belter life.''
In Dorchester, Massachusetts, may
still be seen, it is said, an ancient, epitaph of a young woman who died
very suddenly:
On the -.»1st of March
Ood's angels made a snrcllOl
Around ihe door they stood—
They took a maid,
ll is said,
And cut her down like wood.
In 1792 a certain major had these
lines ongravod on his wife's tombstone:
Had virtue's charm the power to save
And free her votaries from the grave,
This stone  had   ne'er   possessed   the
fame
Of b'ing marked with Polly's name.
Here is a   touching   epitaph    from
l)idd,'foi'd„ England, utiuiol.ynrdi
Tl.e wedding day appointed was,
And welding clothes provided,
Hut ere thai day did come, alas!
He sickened, and lie deled'
Ludicrous contractions- dictated by
penur,ousnoss or enforced by lack of
space, have sonieliini's disfigured epitaphs. A widower in England directed this line to he inscribed on his
wife's tombstone:
A vlftUOUS, woman is a crown to her
husband.
The cutter, not having space for
lhe*word "crown'1' hii upoli tills very
startling substitute:
A virtuous woniaii h; [is. to her bus

through the water like the swish of

For nearly twenty-four hours this

This phenomenon has occured ma
liy times before during the herring

than this, happening usually during
tho month pf January. Owing, how,
over, to tho tremendous quantities
taken otit l>y the fishermen during
iiie past couple of mouths, it was
hardly expected that tho same remits would oucur again, and in fact a
most serious question arosojis to the
possibility uf depleting lho waters, so

Tho Xanaimo Herald prints tl.e
following; Again that most remark -
ttble phenomenon of hundreds of tons
of dead herring lyinj, at the bottom
uf the water occured in the phanm#
iie.r Departure Jjfty, and there seems
lo be absolutely no explanation for it
except Unit they came rushing in in
Mich tremendous quantities that they
-mothered with the very density of
of their own numbers.
That there was a remarkable run
nf herring along this channel is told
by the fishermen who had their nets
set, and in going out to gather them
in, had their boats fairly lifted out of
flu." water by the bulk of the herring
^underneath. They came rushing
t hrough the water like the swish of
escaping steam, seemingly gasping
nnd panic stricken, leaving hundreds
and thousands dead in (heir train.
Far nearly twenty-four hours this
was kept up, and at the present lime
•he bottom of lho channel is white
with dead fish, and ill places to a
depth of two and three feet.
A conservative estimate of the!
amount of herring killed at this ono
spot and in the course of a few hours,
is about a thousand tons-*-alniost ns
much as the amount, drawn from the
harbor by fisherman during the whole
noil son,
Tbo action of the fish at tho time
nf their death is as if they had pre.
viously been stupitied, Those who
watched them yesterday say they
would come to the surface apparently
tired and played out, and after wig,
(fling about weakly for a moment or
two, turn over and die.
This phenomenon has occured ma
liy times before during the herring
: mi, but mostly it has been earlier
than this, happening usually during
i le- month of January. Owing, how,
ever, to tho tremendous quantities
taken o-Sl by the fishermen during
tlio past couple of months, it was
hardly expected that the samo remits would occur again, and iu fact a
most serious question aroioju to the
possibility of depleting the waters, so
immense was tho daily drain on lhe
lish supply, and tho agitation went so
tir that    in Hii'". ice    wiih   brought    to
bear on the Dominion government to
pass,an immediate order in council
prohibiting the use of herring for oil
and guano. This order Imly wont in-
to effect February lOth, and no soon*
er did the fishing tleets desert tlie
harbor tlm.. this immense killing took
place.
The local fisheries guardian last
evening secured u nun.bet of il.e dead
herring aud sent them over to Chief
Inspector Sword, at New Westmin
■der, with a complete account of the
occurrence, and it may he that Mr.
Sword will have the fish dissected and
analyzed in an endeavor to dlsoover
exactly what was the cause of death,

H1QHEST QUALITY,
A graveyard is the last pl.ieo.in tl.e
world where one would   look   for  wit
or humour, or for   ludicrous   cxp.es-
iiits nf sentiment; yet much   humour
I     -   ■:. gathered  from  the spectral
Maine, loft i.t his death a testamentary order that those familiar lines
should be inscribed on his tombstone:
Youthful reader, passing by,
,\s you aro now, no once was T;
As 1 am now, so you must bc,
Therefore prepare to follow me!
The "disconsolate widow" of tho
author added this couplet;
To follow you I am not content,
Until I know which way yon went.
It is said that tho unhappy woman
was reluctantly persuaded by the
clergyman sif the village to have these
two lines removed after they had long
adorned the tombstone.
On the tombstone of a married
no.nun was inscribed this dubious
compliment to her "lord and master":
.Marin, wife of Timothy Brown,
aged eighty years. She lived with
hci husband fifty years, and died in
tl.e confident hope of a better life."
Tn Dorchester, Massachusetts, may
still bo seen, it is said, an ancient epitaph of a young woman who died
very suddenly:
On the 21st of March
God's angels mado a sarche;
Around the door they stood—
They took a maid,
it is said,
And cut her down like wood.
In 1792 a certain major had   these
lines engraved ou   his   wife's   tombstone:
Had virtue's ohurm the power l.o save
And free her votaries from lhe grave,
This stono  hud   ne'er   possessed   lhe
fame
Of being marked with Polly's name.
Here is a   touching   epitaph    from
lliddi'ford„England, chuichyard:
The wedding day appointed was,
And wedding clotl.es provided,
Hut ere that day did come, alas!
He sickened, and he ditled!
Ludicrous cotilrncti.uiK, dictated by
pr-tiiir.oUNiiesr. of enforced by lack   of|
space, have sometimes disfigured   epitaphs.    A widower in    Ki,gland   dir-
ecled this lino to be inscribed on    his
wife's tombstone:
A virtuous, Woman is a orown to her
husband.
