Old Fuzzleton, M.D. locumm teens for the par-
ish doctor)-" Tut, tut Dear me, you want a
complete change-perfect quiet and seclusion,
regular hours, muscular exercise, and a strict
dietary scale." Bill Sikes-"- What I Why,
guv'nor, I don't want to be run in agin-I

Some entertaining stories are told in the cur-
rent number of the Law Gazette of the tricks
by which men summoned to attend as common
jurymen attempt to avoid the duty cast upon
them. The writer of an article entitled
Before the Associate,' says that one morn-
ing a little girl, whose eyes just peered
above the desk, timidly exclaimed-'Please,
sir, father can't come; he can't put on his
boots.' The Associate asked the nervous little
creature what was the matter with her parent.
She hesitated; evidently she had not been
instructed further than the, statement she had
made, and, looking straight into the Associ-
ate's twinkling eyes, she said -" Well, sir,
father don't wear boots; he's got wooden
legs. I wasn't told to say anything else, sir;
that's all.".

Since the International Marine Conference at
Washington recommended that the several .Cv-.
ernments require all their seagoing, vessels to a-ry
a sufficient quantityof animal or vegetable oil for
the purpose of calming the sea in rough weather,
together with suitable means for applying it," the
practical advantages of the matter have become
almost generally understood and the use of oil ale
most generally adopted. The Hydrographic Offic-
at Washington has just issued the following re-
marks, showing the best way to use oil. Seago-
ing men will act wisely in posting them in their
"To cross a bar in heavy weather, after batten-
ing down all hatches, &c., tke two pieces of india
rubber pipe about 20 feet long and 1 inch in diame-
ter. Puat these through the hawse pipes, one on
each side, and let their ends trail in the sea. On
the upper end of each piece of tube lash a good.
sized funnel, secure it to a stanchion in a vertical
position, and station a man at each with a three-gal-
lon tin of colza oil. When the vessel enters the
outermost sea that breaks on the bar, let each man
gently pour the oil down the pipesft This will
smooth the bar immensely and your vessel will
steer much better.
"Almost any oil of animal or vegetable origin
will do, but petroleum is not of much service, ex-
cepting to mix with and thin tlhe otrff;' if eces-
sary. When lying to in a gale head to wind and
drifting slowly, if a little oil is used, a ship ought
to pall through the heaviest storm. Running in a
gale, an oil-bag hung over the weather side or oil "
poured down a pipe, well forward, is of great ser-
vice ia preventing the sea from breaking aboard i
gale increasing, to-round to, prepare a sea anchor,
watch for a smooth spell, and then put the helnI
down, heave overboard a few gallons of oil, an,
float the sea anchor. Keep pouring the oil on the
sea down a weather pipe or scupper while the ship
is coming up to the wind.
A, well equipped sailing ship, even if deeply;
laden, will lie to under a clo-ely-reefed topsail of
tarpaulin in the rigging and weather almost any
gale so long as she is not take aback. Sailing
vessels under these circumstances nowadays often
use an oil bag paid cut to windward to smooth the
sea still more; this is the ideal position of a laden
vessel in a dangerous storm. While towing a di4
abled ship over a bar, qr wh. .re' tho sea is very
wicked a cruple of oil bags over the sterA will east
the sea on the tow.
"In a good --Lea.mer, ta.tlake ahlipwre.*.k. oww-
if a wrick, iun to wiilwjrd of the wreck, lower

pouring considerable oil into thfr sea, whi ch wi
keep the sea smooth between your ship and tb
wreck. In using oil bags il l 1 aiy weather they
should be weighted, if hung over t I, side, in orda
to keep them down. When scudding it is beat t+
pour the oil down the :loset pipes."
Reports are continually being made by skipper
who run into this port concerning their personal
experiences in the use of oil in storms to whi4e
their vessels were expo.-: d. Capt Jamiaon of tl*
American Schooner Gen..A,il Adolbert Ames recent*
ly encountered enormous. seas off the outer D"in
mond Shoal of Cape Uattrra-. When tentt.
miles south of the Cape Sept 7 the vessel was -
calmed and frequently swept fore and aft by heavi
seas. He had a barrel of fishoil aboard, which
dripped from oakum bags on his quarter. Tih
results were excellent. No more seas came aboard
and the vessel, which had been seriously threated
escaped from the neighborhood in safety.
S,;Capt Kenney, of the A.mecrican schooner Lo I
J Kenney says that he was in the gale of Sept
on the Grand Banks, the wind hauling southerly
and then to west-southwest, incrLasing in violence
and blowing in terrific gusts. "I kept a fieo
stream of cod oil running from barrels on deck,"
says Capt Kenney, using in all about ninety
gallons. This oil was of great benefit, but I am
under the impression that cod oil is not good as
some other oils. It kept the sea from breaking
over the vessel, with the exception of one tremen.
dous sea that swept her decks."

LONDON, Nov 9.-Gen Booth, of the Salvation
Army, continues receiving letter.n commenting
favourably on his buok "In Darkest England
and the Way out." setting forth a scheme e f(r
the relief of poverty, ignorance anil vice. The
prince of Wales has thanked him for the re-
ceipt of a copy of the book. He says he is con-
fident he will begreatly interested in itz perusal,
and that its subject is one that for many years
he has had much at heart. Letters of approval
have al-o been received from the bishops of Bath
and Wells and Rochester, from -the Rev. Mr.
Moulton, President of the Wesleyan Conference,
and Mr. Grubb, of the Quakers, who incloses a
check for 50, Chairnian Laing, of the Brigh-
ton Railway, has also written Gen. Booth alet-
ter of sympathy in which is inclosed a check of
100, contributed for the furtherance of the
scheme. Gen. Booth has published a letter ex-
pressing thanks for the general support accord-
ed him, and suggesting combined action onon the
part of the churches in the collection of funds.
A circular letter approving the scheme and
Gen. Booth's suggestion has been issued. It is
signed by a host, of clergymen, incluiling Arch

The beautiful auxiliary Steam Yacht Sulta-
na" from Charleston, S.C., anchored in the har-
bor of St. George's on Tuesday last, and during
the past week has elicited many flattering encon-
iums from those who claim to be versed in matters
pertaining to Naval Architecture.
The Sultana," one of the elite of the New
York Club Fleet, is owned by Mr. Trenor L. Park
of New York City, was designed by J. Beavor
Webb, and built by Handren & Robbins, Brooklyn,
N.Y.. The hull is steel. Length over all 187 feet.
Beam 27 feet 6 inches. Draft of water 14 feet 6
inches. Triple expansion engines. Capacity of
evaporator for making fresh water, 1,200 gallons
per day. When under full spread of canvas shows
about 10,000 square feet. Crew composed of 32
men, constituting a complete complement for hand-
ling under Steam or Sail, and is furnished with
Electric Lights. The guests of Mr. and Mrs. Tre-
nor L. Park, are-Miss Nesbit, New York; Gor-
don Fellow, New York ; Chas. F. Wright, Bos.
ton and Dr. Austin Flint, Jr., N.Y.
The intended trip of the Sultana" is an
around the world one, leaving here for Madeira,
and spending the winter in the Mediteranean, next
summer going North to England, Scotland, Nor.
way and Sweden.
During the sojourn of the "Sultana"'' several
exchanges of courtesies have taken place between
the owner of the yacht and his guests, and the
Acting Governor, the Hlon. F. Eaton and Officers
of the Guards and Garrison, and it is to be hoped
that the distinguished srrauners have enjoyed
their brief visit to the Bermudas.

Royal Dockyard Church.
A most interesting service was held in this
place of worship on Sunday evening last. The
Chaplain the Rev. E. Sullivan, R.N., had invit-
ed the members of the "Loyalty" Lodge of
Freemasons, and of the "Bermuda" Court of
Foresters, with the Good Templars meeting at
Maria Hill, Ireland Isle, to a special evening
service. Accordingly these several orders met
in their lodge rooms and marched in procession
in full regalia to the Dockyard Church. The
brethren of Loyalty Lodge had as visiting
brethren the W. M. and officers and members
of Prince Alfred" Lodge, Somerset, and the
W. M. and some members of Atlantic Phoe-
nix Lodge, Hamilton. The Foresters process.
sion was supplemented by the members of the
Juvenile Branch of the Order. The total num-
ber of brethren of the various associations was
about 230. On arrival at the church, they were
seated on the south side of the building, the
general congregation, which was a very large
one, occupying the North side and gallery.
The service was sung by the Rev. A. C. Rice,
R. N., of the Bellerophon," the Lessons were
read by the Rev. Bruce Mackay, rector of San.
dys, and the sermon was preached by the Rev
E. Sullivan, Chaplain to "Loyalty" Lodge, from
Ephesians II. 21 In his address, which was ar
excellent one, the Chaplain pointed out th(
force of the symbolism used by St. Paul in this
passage, referring to the manner of the building
of the Temple of King Solomon at Jerusalem
as a type of the way in which the kingdom ol
Christ is now being built up of Christian mer
and women. In the course of the service, which
was fully choral throughout, and efficiently
rendered by the large choir of the Church
Hymns 380, 273, and 274 of Hymns Ancieni
and Modern" were sung and the melodies be
ing well known, the large congregation, num
being over 600 persons, amongst whom was H.
R. H. Prince George of Wales, joined in them
as in all the singing, most heartily. The an
them "Behold how good and joyful it is, breth.
ren, to dwell together in unity," was remarka.
bly well sung by the choir, who attached the
rather intricate final chorus with precision and
good effect. Mr. W. Bailey, Schoolmaster, R.
N., presided at the organ. During the singing
of the final hymn a collection was made, in aid
of the new Cottage Hospital, Hamilton, where
the sum of 7 13s. 6d. was contributed to thai
philanthropic undertaking. After the Bene-
diction the choir closed the service with Dr
Stainer's beautiful "seven fold Amen ;" and
the procession reformed and proceeded to theii
various lodge rooms. Everyone concerned is
to be congratulated upon the great success oi
this interesting and notable service.

The weight was r.-,:-il .-n f.t:..: and as the pris-

would have a drop of five feet.
Dr. Chl.,,mi: .,iain, im ---,i superintendent, stood
by the h mtimuaii all thi- time questioning him as to every detail. The crowd in the yard
increased gradually, the sun shone out brilliantly

H- ifis fortitude put nerve into the crowd and re-

Both ladies will make arrangements for their

not known.
Birchall so far as can be learned, made no
further confession.


'Tis many a year ago since what I am going
to tell ye happened.
'Twas long before the -i.mi,.-. came over
with Strongbow to rule us in our own land-
would ye believe me ? In them days giants
used to be as plentiful as potatoes in a prosper-
ous sayson. Why, if a body happened to
stand less than six feet high in ancient times,
he'd be laughed at as a weeny bit of a dwarf.
Troth he'd have the whole country flockin' to
see him as a sort of a world's wonder.
Well, at the time I'm spakin' of, there lived
near the Rock o' Cashel, in the county of Tip-
perary, one Darby Moynahan. He was thought
to be the biggest man in Ireland. He stud
nine feet in his stocking, an' for strength,
no man could howld a candle to him. He

could down a bullock wid wan tap of his little
Only wan thing dampened poor Darby's
sperrits-an' that was because he couldn't find
his aquil; the dickens a boxer far or near had
the pluck to stand forninst him, not wan in
in Ireland. At last, a whisper came across
the water from Scotland, concerning a giant
in that country who was -,:.,i to be even su-
perior to M,,yinia: n in siz-.-an' strength ;
more be token, he, like Darby, was always
pining an' praying that he tiight meet his
match. Well, begorra, as soon as my bowld
Darby heard the news, he sint a challenge
at wanst invitin' the S...(i-huim in to come over
to Ireland an' wrestle. mii i.--.llar--an'-elbow,
so that he iiis"t shake some o' the pride out
of him.
He soon got an answer, tellin' him that the
challenge was accepted, an' advisin' him at the
same time to make his pace an' prepare for his
funeral, "for," said the Scotch giant in his
note, I never botch my work."
On the ,im-hili' that the Scotchman landed
in Ii 1.1n.1, K it1 v inquired of a friend of his
that had seen the lir- in.,r arrive, how big
he was.",
How 1ig- i it ? Troth,, Darby, between
you an' me, he's as big an' a-half as yourself;
an', from what I'mnto wld, you'll be as dead as
mutton when he's through wid ye, for they say,
he always kill-t his mlian.
Poor Darby, when he head such a frightful
account of his rival, began to grow onasey in
his miinil; he went at w.iiit to lii, ,cal.iti t.,
ask the advice of Norah, his wife; but, before
the I.Loor woman coull ,ianiw\,r hint, hiq young.-
est son Dinny kern imnin' intu th hu.N.-,
bawlin' for his father an' mother to come to
the l.:,or ani.l e the great big man cumin'
through the boreen*.
Darby peeped through the window, an' turn-
ed the colour of milk at the sight of the won-
dLerful Sc-.t,:h giant.
Nora aliuia.0 .aidil hb:., 'ye may got my
cortltn t-leady, for here comes a man that will
soon mal;e lo-:,d for' worms out o' your poor
Darby. : ,
"Not while I can save ye, jewel," said
N.:.rah. S"urt-, you'll.- my owzi husband,
Darby, an' it's my jooty to strain very ne.Trvt
io iltiilnt th- man I .\-w:.d to love and obey;
ctnly do, a- I bid ye, an' you'll be saved, and
that too, with-.ut dishonour."
As she spoke she lifted her little daughter
Aileen out of the cradle, :tind, after putting' it
on a bed in another room, she made Darby
take the child's place. An' when she covered
him on-, r iiglt with a quilt, she sat be-sid- Liim
rockin' the cradle, while she sung-
Hush-a-bye, baby,
On the hill top,
When h li- \\ind blows
The cradle will rock,"

Po:,or Dat by had to stuff the quilt into his
mouth to prevent him from going' into kinks;
for, if he didn't do that, he would have died
wiil the laughing' fit that overtook him.
While Norah kept singing the owld lullaby,
Al :. ih.': 'teli :? o the ca'bia but the brawny '-i:int. In a voice that sounded for all
tI a worl ik.1 i.. clp o' thunder, he axed if
" i Dail.-y iM.'yni irihi was to be seen ?"
N. r.-tli :-. r..d ., er Darby's face, an' walked
1i11. (ly acros-. ti ...;., to where the Scotch-
mall -.t:.-1, Ii-. hed touchin' one o' the
rafters, an', in a soft whisper, she towld him
tLb t was gone into the woods to get a
mouthful o' fresh air before the wrastlin'
match kern off.
The giant then informed her that he'd wait
where he was till her husband's return, with
that he saited himself beside the tuif-fire, lit
his pipe, an' pinf.-.*,w..,v like a limekiln.
What's Ihit ye I, v. there ?" says he, fixen
his bullet eyes on the cradle.
'It's the child," i.1 Norah, an' I wouldn't
give a piehi.:-ri..r :iin or your life if ye wake it
before Darby comes home."
"I don't care a jack-straw about Darby,"
says the giant,
If ye wish to lave this house alive don't
disturb the creature's sleep-he didn't get a
wink all last night, he's cutting his eye- teeth,
poor t in',.'"
iTh.- -:,tciu.- ii l,,k.,l mighty puzzled.
It th-bt'- the ,.hill,' said he, how big is
the father ?"
i You'll soon be able to judge for yourself,"
said Norah; but I can tell ye this much, sir,
whenever my husband is vexed that poor child
in the cradle sometimes runs an' hides himself
in one of his father's brogues."
Mammy," roared Darby fiom the cradle,
"bring in de big fat cow from the barn. I
want to ait it before daddy comes home."
"I will, agra," said Norah. Oh, sir,
you've woke the child! A king's ransom
wouldn't save ye now if Darby meets ye."
M. l1.., murder !" screeched 'he giant;
"d'ye call that gormandizer a child? If he
can devour a fat cow at a single male, what
sort of a cannibal must the father be? Tell
Darby," says he, rising to his feet and bump-
ing-his big head against an iron hook in the
rafters, "I'll call Good morning ,
With that he shot out o' Darby's cabin like a
sky-rocket, an' was niver seen or heard of in
Ireland from that blessed -day to this.


morning wore on and nothing occurred. I began
to feel relieved. When a warder is attacked the
convicts in his vicinity are compelled to go to his
assistance. If they do not, they stand a chance
of being implicated in what may turn out to
be a charge of murder, and if they know or
suspect a warder is about to be knocked down, they
are supposed to warn him. About ten o'clock
Scotty had an opportunity of speaking to me.
I am going to wish you good-bye," he said.
X"V!.i t?" I replied; "has the Queen taken
some ot your time off for the Jubilee ? "
These fools think she will do something for
them, but we know better. We had to work on
Jubilee Day, had we not f A fine Jubilee I had
-a broken head and bread and water I'm off,
though, for I intend giving that -- a death-
The officer's attention would at one part of the
morning be centered on counting the chisels, &c.;
and then, Scotty told me, lie intended to kill him.
z. to say, the man was not at all excited or
infuriated; his voice was calm and passionless.
He had deliberately made up his mind to murder
the warder. I was perplexed, and hardly knew
what to do. A man instinctively de-ires to warn
a fellow-creature of danger ahead. On the other
hand, the man, rough and brutal as prison life
had made him, had won my regard by many
thoughtful acts of kindness. Rounding on a fel-
low-prisoner was also repugnant to .me. I could
not do it; so I determined to keep a close watch,
and endeavour to prevent somehow the crime from
being committed. When the tools came in the
officer had his back turned towards us, being busy
counting them, and Scotty, firmly grasping the bar
in his hands, made for the Officer. Now was my
Here's your bar, Mr -- ," I cried out as
loud as I could.
The warder turned sharply round, and the at-
tention of the men around was attracted to the
spot; so the prisoner seeing his chance was gone,
had the presence of mind to hand the bar to the
officer as if he had just brought it. back to 'the
tool-box. The warder turned as pale as death ; he
evidently realized the danger he had escaped. He
said nothinir, however; but, strange to say, from
that Nery day he became an a'terei man, being
reasonable and humane in his dealings with the
men under his charge. Scotty never forgave me
for interfering. From that time he never spoke
to me, or, for that matter, to any of the others.
This is one of the many episodes of prison life that
will never be forgotten by me as long as I live.-
An ex-Conviet, in the Labour World.

Englishmen have been domiciled for many gener-
ations without showing any indications of grave
deterioration, much less of extinction. Where

With us, as well as with ths Japanese, the
birysanthemumi is valued simply as a beauti-.
ul flower. It is cultivated" more a nd more,
and multiplied in a thousand varieties; but no
one thinks of putting it to a practical use. In
he Austrian province of Dtalmatia, however,
and especially in the islands of the Adriatic be-
onging to that province, it is largely cultivated
or the manufacture of the suiibtance known
,s "Dalmatian Insect Powder." On theisland
of Lesina, once covered with great forests, but
iow bare of trees, there are large fields covered,
with a thick growth of ehry.-anthemums, all of
which are used for this purpose. No other'
*nrp raised in that region is so profitable. The
product of a single acre of ground, including
chrysantlihemtnuims and insect powder, is worth
from 100 to 300. So promising is the industryF
that the Austridn' Government distributes
plants very cheaply among the inhabitants
every year in order to develop it.
It is well known that many European plant,
common enough,. but by no means trouible-
some at home, when transplanted to distant
parts of the world, grow and spread to such an
extent as almost to exterminate the native
vegetation, becoming a dreadful nuisance.
For example, this has been the case with the
European water-cress in New Zealand, where
it has suffered a change" into something rich
and strange." Instead of a delicate little plant
lining the hedges' of brooks, it has developed
into a coarse and most troublesome mat of
vegetation, choking the streams, and in some
places turning their comir'- and causing much
In Chili the most mischievous introduced
plants are our very useful oats and white clo-
ver. A botaniht, writing from the interior of-
Chili to a German horticultiiral paper, says:-
"On the way from Traiguen to Angol, one
sees great fields, several acres in extent, thick.
ly covered with oats, among which no other
plant appears. This crop has not been sown by
men, but is a spontaneous growth of bearded
oats from Southern Europe called tiatina by the
Chilians. The common white clover is also
spreading more an,-I more widely in Chili, and
suppressing native plants as it goks. As Eut.-o
pean man drives out the native American man
so European plants drive out tlihoe indigenous
to the soil."
In Eastern Roumelia, formerly a part of Tur-
key, but now joined to the new principality of
Bulgaria, a very attractive business is carried
on,--the culvation of roses to be aminfactw-
ed into the perfume known as adtar of roses.
The valleys lying around the'famous Shipka
Pass, through-which the Russian r ioops marcb-
ed into Turkey in 1s77, are covered with fields
of cultivated roses.
The name Shipka itself means wild roses. It_
has long Ileen supposed that a peculiar variety
of white rose grew here, and yielded the delici-
ous perfume: But specimens sent to i'rench
gardeners for identification proverto be simply

A formidable volume has just been published
by Mr Robert H Lamborn, an American na-
turaliktt, on the subject of mosquitos; but. it is
a curious fact. that none of the writers:cited in
the book take notice of the remarkable circum-
stance that the largest and fiercest kinds of
inquitore fund ine ound in t most sparselypo
lated regions. The traveller who proceeds due
north finds these insects increasing in size,
numbers, and ferocity as he journeys pole waird,
and on the swampy levels of the Alaskan lit-
toral he will encounter hordes which for activ-
ity, magnitude, and venom are to the New
Jersey species what a hawk is to a sparrow.
On the portages of the Cascade Mountains in
Britisli Columbia even the Indians are put to
iii-hrt by what is known in that region as the
lion" mosquito. In the Alaskan swamps'
even the thick -furred bear is mobbed to death
by these agte and merciless tormentors. 'The
fact that these insects attain such dimensions
