CHECKING A COLD BY WHIFFS OF
Among the most agreeable methods ever pro-
posed for treating colds and coughs at their first
onset is one suggested by M Roux, a French phy-
sician. M Roux's method, simply stated, is as
As soon as the first symptoms are felt of a cold in
the head' or of the chest, a little Cologne water
poured on a handkerchief should be inhaled as
fully as possible by the nose or more particularly
by the mouth, several times during the day. The
inhalation of the Colonge vapor should be deep
enough to produce in the throat or pharynx an in-
tense feeling of burning that will be disagreeable
at first, but will not last.
The inhalations should be made exclusively by
the nose or by the mouth, according to whether
one seeks to cheek a cold in the head or a cold on
the chest. But the effect is infinitely more mark-
ed and certain on the mucous membrane of the
pharynx and larynx than on that of the nose.
M Roux has collected eleven cases in which the
result of inhaling Cologne water has not only
been excellent, but astonishing. The rapidity of
its action induces him to call attention to its great
value. In twenty-four hours an acute cold, ac-
companied by a slight rise in temperature of the
body, pain in the throat, hoarseness, running of
the nose and cough, can be stopped entirely when
this treatment is employed from the beginning by
four or five inhalations of two or three minutes
each. By relieving the -uperficial inflammation
which would otherwise s,,read downward, causing
bronchitis, the cold is mi:.ped in the bud.-.Hala.s

LONDON, Feb. 16.-Henry Fowler, president
of the local government board directed the at-
tention of the House of Commons this evening
to several questionable features of the Peers
amendment of the Parish Council Bill. He ao-.
pealed to the Speaker of the House to say whe-
ther the Peers had not infringed upon the priv-
ileges of the Commons in altering a decision of
the Lower House to pay the expenses of the
Parish Councils from the Poor rates. The
House of Lords had, he said, been excluded
from initiating or amending Revenue Bills.
Their action in the case in question seemed to
him to be unconstitutional. The speaker ruled
the Peers exceeded their rights and instructed
the House to ignore the amendment against
which Mr. Fowler protested. The announce-
ment of this decision was cheered loudly.

Quite an interesting cruising race was sailed on
Wednesday last, the course being from the New
Wharf at the steamer's shed, out through Timlin's
Narrows, round Morgan's and Tucker's Islands,
leavinglBoaz Island Buoy and H M S Terror on
the starboard hand, back through the Head of the
Lane to Hamilton. The yachts started as follows :
Thetis, Julia, Undine, Zephyr, and Marguerite.
These places were maintained all through the raise
with but one exception, the Undine having
changed places with the Julia shortly before the
finish. Thetis, we understand, increased her time
by about eight minutes.

A HUNTING INCIDENT IN NORTH
A writer in the British North Borneo Herald gi
an account of a deer hunt he had recently in/the
ni i.A-l-,tiurhor,.i of Loong Piasow :- /
A dog, Juleb (which has caught fiftee deer
within the last six months, by the way), put up
something, and, after chasing it some distance,
sent itstraight atf me. I thought, whatever it was,
I was bound to get a shot, as I was almost stand-
ing in the open, but it kept within some high
grass and scrub stuff, and both animals passed
within 15 yards of rue without my being able to
see what was being chased or to get a shot. I
thought it was some smallish animal, as the grass
and scrub it was running in was not quiteshoulder
high. I was very muwh surprised, therefore, to see
a large saimbhur stag jump into the river about 70
yards off. I fired, and sent a ball through his
shoulder, but he climbed up the bank and went off,
with Juleh in close attendance, and the dog put
him in again not 50 yards further off round a bend.
Jimbongan came running up. jumped into the wa-
ter, and swam across, losing his parang as he did
so (bang goes two dollars !).
I struggled through sone awful thorns, and ar-
rived on the scene of action some five minutes af-
terwards, in a very tattered condition. There was
Jimbongan sitting on the deer's head in soft mud,
the poor brute apparently gasping its last breath,
but Jimbonugan unable to cut its throat for want
of his parang. All of a sudden up jumped the
deer and went for Jimbongan, but he held on like
a man, and a great -,Truc. ensued in knee-deep
mud. I danced about on the bank trying to shoot
the deer without endangering ;he man. Presently
the deer took to the writer >.nd tried to swim off,
Jimbongan holding on to one of his bind hoofs,
and then I got in a shot and knilid it. Jimbongan
told me that when he recrossed the river the second
time a crocodile looked at him with a curious eye.
We tried to haul thq deer on to the bank, but
could not move him, so I gave him two cartridges
and the Snider and went back for some men. I
had not gone over a quarter of a mile when I
heard a shot, and when the men came back with
the meat Jimbongan told me that a crocodile some
7 feet long came to the deer, and that he shot it,
but it got into deep water and sank. I am aware
that some parts of this story are rathor 'steep,' but
the points of interest are the curious way a full-
size horned stag (it wag a somewhat unusually
large one, but with a poor head) can keep itself
out of sight in cover even when it is chased, its vi-
tality with a pretty well placed Snider bullet in its
body (though I have known much more remarkable
cases than this), and the curious way that croco-
diles have of turning up whenever there is any-
thing likely to interest them going mn, showing
that there are a great many more of them hiding
in unsuspected places than people would suppose.'
PEANUTS AS AN ARTICLE OF FOOD.
In the Berliner klinische Wochenschrift (cited in
the Centralblatt fur klinische Medicin) Dr. P. Fur-
bringer treats of the peanut as an article of food
rich in albumen, of which it contains forty-seven
per cent together with nineteen per cent. of fat
and non-nitrogenous extractive matters. He re-
commends the use of roasted peanuts in the form
of soup or mush. On account of their cheapness,
peanuts are recommended as a popular article of
food especially in poor houses and the like ; more-
over, they are recommended as an article of
food for the corpulent, for diabetics, and for the
subjects of kidney disease, in the last mentioned of
whom foods rich in animal .dilu,,:,u are to be
AN EXTRAORDINARY MASON.
The first Masonic funeral that ever took place
in California, occurred in the year 1849, and
was performed over the body of a brother
found drowned in the bay of San Francisco.
An account of the ceremonies states that upon
the body of the deceased was found a silver
mark of a 'Ifr'; Master, upon which were en-
graved the initials ofhisn'me. A little further
investigation revealed to the beholders the most
outre exhibition of Masonic emblems that were
ever drawn by the ingenuity of man on human
skin. There is nothing in the history or tra-
ditions of Freemasonry equal to it. Beautifully
dotted on his left arm in red and blue ink,
which time could not efface, appeared all the
emblems of the Entered Apprentice. There
were the Holy Bible, the Square and Compass
the twenty-four inch guage, and the common
Gavel. There were also the Mosaic pavement
representing the ground floor of King Solomon's
T-mle, the indented Tessel which surrounds
it, an! the Blazing Star in the centre. On his
right arm, and artistically executed in the same
indelible liquids, were the emblems appertain-
ing to the Fellow Craft degree, viz the Plumb,
the Square and the Level. There were also five
columns r-i,-. -.:.tJ ip the five Orders of Archi-
tecture-the Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian,

Trowel presented itself, with all the other
working tools of operative Lt-.: ::-, 1 -V-h1.- all

Great Light of Masonry. Over his heart was
the Pot of Incense. On the other parts of his
person were the Bee Hive, the Book of Consti-
tutions, guarded by the Tyler's Sword; the
Sword pointing to a naked Heart; the All-See-
ing Eye ; the Anchor and Ark, the Hour Glass,
the Scythe, the forty-seventh problem of Euclid;
the Sun, Moon, Stars, and a Comet ; the Three
Steps, emblematical of Youth, Manhood, and
Age. Admirably executed was the weeping
Virgin, reclining on a broken column, upon
which lay the Book of Constitutions. In her
left hand she held the Pot of Incense, the Ma-
sonic emblem of a pure heart; and in her up-
lifted right hand a sprig of acacia, the beautiful
emblem of immortality of the soul. Immediate-
ly beneath her stood winged Time, with his
scythe by his side, "which cuts the brittle
thread of life," and the Hour Glass at his feet,
which is ever reminding us that our lives are
drawing to a close." The withered and attenu-
ated fingers of the Destroyer were delicately
placed amid the long and gracefully flowing
ringlets of the discon,-:late mourner. Thus
were the striking emblems of mortality and im-
mortality beautifully blended in one pictorial
representation. It was a spectacle such as Ma-
sons never saw before, and in all probability
such as the fraternity may never witness again.
The brother's name was never known.

THE PROTECTION OF SUR-
LORD DUNDONALD IN THE NINE.
The identification of a man who assumes a
different alias in nearly every locality he visits can-
not fail to be a matter of extreme difficulty. The
case of the notorious murderer Deeming is in
point. His known aliases were nine in number-
viz Williams, Ward, SwanAton, Levey, Lord
Dunn, Lawson, Mollatt, Drewe, and Baron
Swanston. Numerous instances of the same kind
might be given. in the generality of cases au
alias is not assumed for other than dishonest or
fraudulent purposes, although this is not invariably
the case, as-e.g. literary and artistic noms deguerre
and theatrical names, which are to all intents and
pu'poses aliases : Arther Gordon Pyn, alias Edgar
Allen Poe; Mrs. Harrison, daughter of Charles
Kingsley, alias Lucas Malet; Mademoiselle Louise
de la Ramre, alias Ouida; John Henry Brodribb,
alias Henry Irving ; John Fairs, alias John Hare.
The iEcL!il. law places no restriction on the in-
S.' .. i .:. use of aliases, which, as I have shown, in
the majority of cases afford a cloak to crime. The
unsatisfactory state of the law has been brought
home to me in more than one case which has come
under my personal notice. A man who was a
total stranger to me took my family name, passing
himself off as my brother, and borrowed money.
The person from whom he had borrowed called
upon me, and was very much surprised and annoy-
ed to find that he had been taken in. In a second
case a man calling himself by my name applied to
an estate agent for a house in the suburbs. I dis-
covered this before the transaction was carried out,
quite by accident, a letter intended for him from
the agents being sent to me, but I was without
redress, the authorities at Scotland Yard informing
me that as I had not been defrauded I had no
cause of action.
In a third case the name and title of a friend of
mine were assumed by an impostor, who
hereby induced a girl of respectable family to
marry him. He subsequently deserted her, and
she then discovered the fraud. The law could no
doubt be enforced against the soi-disant peer, but
my friend whose title had been assumed had no
To sum up, is not legislation of some kind
necessary for the purpose of checking the indis.
orimate change of name and assumption of aliases?
As we have shown, the law recognizes the impor-
tance of protecting trade names, and why should
it not extend its protection to those whose names
have been immortalized by patriotic service, and
which are often the most treasured possessions of
their owners ? Should any person concoct bread-
pilules and call them by the name of "Holloway"
the whole machinery of law is instantly set in
motion to protect that sacred name, for money is
at stake; but if anyone, be he thief or murderer,
should call himself Gordon, Wellesley, Nelson, Pitt,
Gladstone, or Wilberforce, the law of the land
provides no redress. Honour is at discount in these
latter da-vs of the nineteenth century, and we all
bow our heads and worship the Golden Calf, and
Again, there is great reason why legislation
should step in and limit the practice, because of
the confusion which results and the facilities it
affords to criminals to escape from justice. Names
are changed much more frequently now than was
the case twenty years ago, as may hbe seen by re-
ferring to the Tones. Formerly the practice was
seldom resorted to except where an estate which
had for generations been ia the possession cof a
family devolved upon someone who, although per-
Shaps related to the family, bore another name, and
who was required by the instrument conveying the
0operty to him to assume the name of the testator
orrantor. A few instances of this kind would
no c... it nany (ilir uly, but when the practice
I.-OJ a ne of everyday occurrence confusion mu't
arise. The arbitrary a--ur.i ,'! 1n of aliases is even
less defensible, and must result in disadvantage to
the State in the increased difficulty which is im-
posed upon those who are responsible for te safe-
ty of property and the maintenance of law and
order. A person can un.ler he present law call
himsea!f Smith to-day, S., i!. to-morrow, Have-
lock the next day, and so on to the end of the yeu r,
and then start aftesh in the new year. Some such
scheme of legislation as the :' i ,: seems advisa-
ble and necessary :-
1. Wirn regard to change of naune-(a) The
royal licence should be procured, and some legal
formality '!sir-.l, such as enrolment in a public
register and publication in the London Gazette and
local newspapers. (b) Only allowed for adequate
reasons. (c) The name to be subuit'ed to and
sanctioned by some competent aaihowity. (d) Any
person changing his name without -.-, iu,.: with
the requirements of the Act to be pi. hoi '.y fine
2. With respect to aliases-Every person who
has ever been sentenced by a court of justice to be
compelled to register any alaq he or sha may as-
sume and to be fined or imp isoued if found under
an unregistered alias.

Among the crowd of us who rushed into one

A PORTABLE C.'J;-:[ IV'ORY.

THE BANK OF ENGLAND.
THu LoDnoi TIMEs, JAx. 8TH, 1894.
The Bank of England has lately been subjected
to an unusual amount of hostile criticism, much of
of it very unjust. There has never been a time
when the management of that great institution has
been free from faults, sometimes of a serious char-
acter, and, as our readers are aware, we have from
time to time found it necessary to express disap-
proval of some of its acts. We have had to point
out that as custodian of the ultimate cash reserve
of the United Kingdom the Bank was not always
prompt enough in securing temporary control over
the market at times when the reserve was being
rapidly reduced by withdrawals of gold for export.
We discussed the whole situation of the Bank in
relation to the Money market at considerable
length in January, 1891, a time when many of
those who are now talking loudly of the incompe-
tence with which the Bank is managed had hardly
recovered from the condition of abject terror they
were in during the week ended November 15,
1890, and were still thankful that, owing to the
existence of the Bank and of a resolute man at the
head of it, the thing they feared had not become
a reality. Substantially the situation of the Bank
in relation to the market is the same as it was
three years ago, the Bank being still very weak ;
but there is this difference, that the great joint
stock banks have a clearer perception than they
formerly had of the advisability of supporting the
Bank in checking gold withdrawals when the re-
serve is low. It is true that some serious irregu-
larities have lately come to light in the manage-
ment of the Bank, but nothing has happened to
justify the kind of language which has been used
during the last two months, and more especially
during the last few days, regarding that institu-
tion. It is absurd to adopt toward the Bank the
attitude of a preacher denouncing the abomination
of desolation. There is no call for Habakkuk
Mucklewrath masquerading as a critic of modern
finance, with exhortations bearing about as much
relation to the state of the present world as those
of his prototype bore to the condition of Scotland
at the end of the 17th Century. The temptation
to treat the Bank to a lecture has been too much
for many writers, the style of the lecture depend-
ing, of course, on the personality of its author; but
the prevailing tone of these compositions since the
resignation of the late Chief Cashier has been too
Pecksniffian to be of much value. We see no ad.
vantage in assuming, as some assume, that the
Bank is goverened mainly by noodles. The Bank
directors are not gods, but they are not blackbete-
THE MISSING-WORD CRAZE.
The Public Prosecutor has scotched the missing-
word game, but by no means killed it. Four or
five other sheets are now being published at Os-
tend, and posted to subscribers here, for the sole
purpose of carrying on these competitions; and
from the specimen copies which have been sub-
mitted to me it is evident that it is a flourishing
and profitable business. For the foolish people
who are so infected with the craze as to entrust
their money to the gentry at Ostend I do not feel
very much concern. But it is surely an anomalous
and scandalous state of things that whilst the Pub-
lie Prosecutor proceeds against any journal printed
in England which promotes lotteries of this kind,
the Postmaster-General helps to evade the law by
circulating papers which are sent over from Bel-
gium. Once more, therefore, I would suggest to
the authorities at St. Martin's-le-Grand the desir-
ability of imitating the excellent practice of the
American Postmaster-General with regard to the
fraudulent and illegal use of the mails.-Truth.
Of Queen Lilinokalani personally, whose brief
two years' reign has precipitated such disaster,
nothing should be said in censure which does not
allow that she is of a race which her white con-
querers consider inferior to their own. No such
profligate and open debauchery has been charged
against her as that of which her late brother and
royal predecessor was accused; but she, a married
woman at the time of her accession, and more re-
cently a widow, has had that scandal imputed to
her which woman holds most in abhorence, but
can east easily put down. Lilinokalani's chastity
is defended by her friends and denied by her en-
emies; she has always been received at her capital
with the greatest respect and greeted in society
by the wives and daughters of the leading for-
eign residents, which is of itself an important cir-
cymstance in her favor. But be the truth as it
may, the coarse and calumnious epithets with
which so mans of our own countrymen have late-
ly befouled her in the press, and worst of all, Pre-
sident Harrison's recent minister, who should have
been the last person to forfeit dignity in that re-
spect-and all without an indictment, an investi-
gation, an affidavit, or even a really compromising
fact to adduce against her-should cause the blood
of every honorable man to curdle with indignation.
As for Wilson, her alleged paramour, his rise in
her confidence is capable, at all events, of that
guiltless explanation to which every accused person
should be entitled for, a half-breed Englishman of
good stock and strong physique, brought up in the
Sandwich Islands from boyhood, and proving him-
self quickly superior to the blacksmith's trade,
which first employed him, he married a native girl
whom Lilinuokalani had trained in her household
like an own child, and attached, besides the Queen's
husband by his congenial companionship in the
manly sports; till finally the Queen herself, recal-
ling the royal vicissitudes of past revolutions, se-
lected him to be her marshal and palace guard, in
which personal capacity he lived necessarily with
his own wife in close proximity to the palace. He
well vindicated his sovereign's choice by his cour-
age, ability, and conspicuous and constant fidelity
to her interests. Indeed, of all the numerous men
who figure through Commissioner Blount's search-
ing investigation, Wilson stands out alone, chief
and organizer of the royal forces, as the man whom
revolutionist plotters thoroughly dreaded; he it was
who would have nipped conspiracy in the bud after
the Russian fashion, who, but for more prudent and
more timorous advisers of the government, would
have arrested ringleaders, suppressed secret meet-
ings, dared the revolutionists and even the inter.
evening marines of our United States, vessel to
fight, and who only surrendered his station house at
last on the Queen's peremptory mandate. It was
for all this, we may well surmise, and because of
constancy to his sovereign, the woman who relied
upon his protection, that annexationists hate him,
and pull his reputation to shreds, more than from
any pious suspicions that he received her illicit
favors.-[Prof. Schouler in the Forum.]
Higher than the Eifel.-The great tower now
building at Wemdcy Park, near Harrow, in Eng-
land, will be 175 feet taller than the Eiffel tower
and built on much the same plan. The height will
be 1,150 feet; as it stands on a bill 165 feet high,
it gains so much in extent of panorama. It will
be of steel, will cost $1,000,OO00, and will be finish-
ed in eighteen months. The base will be 800 feet
square and the first platform '00 feet square.
ITALY GAINS TIME.
Italy has gained 10 minutes in time by changing
its standard from 50 minutes earlier than Green-
wich to exactly an hour. On the question of time
the countries of Europe are now divided into three
groups, that of the west, consisting of England,
France, Spain and Portugal, Holland and Belgium.
which take their time from Greenwich; the central
group of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany,
Austro Hungary, Switzerland and Italy, who-e
standard time is exactly 60 minutes earlier, and,
finally, the oriental group of Russian Turkey, the
Balkan states and Greece, whose time differs two
hours from that of Greenwich.
A NARROW ESCAPE.
An interesting incident of wild beast life was
witnessed by a bunter recently. A deer came
bounding down the steep side of a bare, rocky bill
on the edge of the Snake river, just above the
mouth of the Grande Ronde, closely followed by a
big mountain lion. The buck plunged headlong
into the river and swam for dear life toward the
farther shore. The big cat stopped short at the
water's edge, put its paw angrily but gingerly in-
to the water, and then drew back and watched the
deer gain the opposite bank in safety |and disap-
pear into woods. With a disappointed snarl the
lion bounded away.-Halifax Herald, Jan 23rd.

THE PREVALENCE OF INFLUENZA.
The London Lancet of 18th Jany says:-
Last week witnessed another very material de-
cline in the number of deaths directly attributed
to influenza in London, there being but 87 as com-
pared with 164, 147, and 108 for the three preced.
ing weeks. The disease, however, seems to be
still holding its own in some parts of the provinces.
For instance, at Peterborough there appears to
have been a considerable increase in the number
of deaths from influenza during last week, and a
large number of workshops in that city have been
invaded by the disease. Owing to so many choris.
ters being down with influenza, the choral services
of the cathedral have had to be suspended. We
can quits understand that the peculiar tendency
of the present epidemic to attack more especially
the larynx and pharynx will prove fatal to all vocal
music not only during th e stages of the at-
tack, but also for a more or less prolonged period
afterwards. Influenza still seems to be rife in
POWER OF INVENTIONS.
It is not everyone who appreciates the impor.
tince of helping the inventors along. They are
the salt of the earth. Congress can well go out of
its way to consider any law which to any
extent will assist them in getting a fair
return for their ideas. If a system of laws could
finally be enacted giving full and fair compensation
to each inventor promptly, as one by one he dis-
covered the secrets of nature, there would not be, as
there are at present, so many of nature's secrets
hidden from us. We might find that, instead of
this world being one of incessant toil, nature in.
terded it to be one (f comparative ease, and instead
of being a world of incessant worry, perhaps we
should find nature intended it to be one of compar-
tive contentment.- American Journal of Polities.

Aselepiad, Dr. Sir B. W. Richardson has an inter-
