The Late William Hall Darrell.

On Wednesday afternoon, the 22nd inst., Mr.
Wm. Hall Darrell breathed his last; and, on the
following day, his remains were reverently placed
alongside those of his esteemed wife, in Pembroke
Parish Church-yard, the funeral being attended
by a large and representative number of people.
Mrs. W. HallDarrell Darrell only predeceased her hus-
band a few days, her funeral having taken place
on the previous Saturday. A couple, who a few
years ago celebrated happily their Golden Wed-
ding, were thus almost simultaneously called
away, the bond of union being, in this case, scarce-
ly severed. Few people in our insular community
were better known than were Mr. and Mrs. Win.
Hall Darrell, and everywhere they were deserved-
ly held in high esteem. A native of Devonshire
Parish, for many years Mr. Darrell resided there,
removing to the Town of Hamilton for greater
convenience to his duties, residing for a time on
Reid Street, and afterwards in the East section of
Long House. Mr. Darrell never ceased to take a
lively interest in his native Parish, where he held
considerable property, holding a seat at the Church
Vestry Board. His father, Josephus Darrell, was
Treasurer of the Town of Hamilton and largely
interested in the trade and prosperity of the new
Capital. Mr. Win. Hall Darrell inherited his
father's interest in Town affairs, and held the posi-
tion of Acting Mayor for a brief period. Mr. Win.
Hall Darrell was, in 1840, appointed the Clerk of
the House of Assembly of these Islands, and four
years later Prothonotary of the Court of General
Assize. In 1866, Mr. Darrell was made Registrar
of Births, Marriages, and Deaths, and, in 1868, was
appointed Revising Officer. In the discharge of
the duties of his various offices, Mr. Darrell exhib-.
ited a great uniformity of steady perseverance and
systematic method, and was approachable at all
tines by all who desired to consult him. He
therefore earned in the Courts and in the Legis-
lature a deservedly high reputation; while the
constant application he was enabled to give to his
work, being rarely absent fromni his post through
ill health, and only once on leave of absence, we
believe, was a great public advantage. The Legis-
lature showed their appreciation of his public
services, first, in giving him an Assistant Clerk in
the work of the House of Assembly-Mr. D. E.
SBvon, who has succeeded to the position-and later
on, at the end of 1888, allowing him to retire on a
pension equal to the full amount of his salary as
Prothonotary and Clerk of the Assembly, vizt.,
.270 for the remainder of his life. Mr. Darrell's
initial salary as Clerk of the Assembly was 125,

Prorogation of the Colonial. Parliament.
Yesterday afternoon at 12.30 o'clock His Excel-
lency the Governor, General T. C. Lyons, C.B.,
came down to the Council Chamber accompanied
by Mrs Lyons and Mrs Dowell and attended by
Captain A J W Dowell, A D C, to prorogue the
session of the Colonial Parliament. The Guard of
Honour was composed of a company of the 2nd
bn P W Leinster Regt, Royal Canadians, under
the command of Captain A Canning, Lt J R Coch-
rane, 2nd Lt F C Heniker being in charge of the
colours. Notwithstanding the threatening charac-
ter of the weather, the Council Chamber was filled
to repletion. A large deputation of officers of the
Army and Navy attended, the Bishop of New-
foundland and Bermuda and a number of the
clergy were also present. The audience comprised
a considerable number of ladies and gentlemen
now visiting Bermuda.


The Bermuda Produce Exchange.
We congratulate the Directors of the Bermuda
Produce Exchange in having overcome the many
difficulties which at first appeared to be insur-
mountable. At last the agricultural interests are
united, and should this combination continue to
work harmoniously, it must be an important factor
in improving the general prosperity of the Colony.
The interests of the farmers are dependent upon
the successful working of the Exchange, and they
will be exceedingly shortsighted if they fail to
stand by the organization and work vigorously for
its ultimate success, as one of the greatest boons
that has been offered to the farmers of Bermuda
for many years is the offer made by the Produce
Exchange to purchase their whole crop before their
land was planted at good and remunerative prices,
so that while their produce was growing they knew
the price to be obtained.
The canvassers are now busy distributing the
acceptance of the growers' offers, which means
that the Exchange virtually controls the crop for
the season of 1896, and as the call has been paid on
upwards of 20,000 shares, it is of the utmost im-
portance that every applicant should pay his call
without delay. We learn that the Quebec S S
Company will carry the freight to New York dur-
ing the coming season, and at exceedingly favour-
able rates, as compared with those from the
Southern States to New York, and that six of the
most influential market men in New York have
been selected to sell the crop there on commission,
and as they will all work in unison, there will be
no cutting prices as in former years. These ar-
rangements will greatly assist in carrying the
plans of the Produce Exchange to a successful
issue, as they have concilited and harmonised all
conflicting interests, and we sincerely trust that
every one interested in farming will do their ut-
most to help the directors carry them through
both successfully and profitably.
Garrison Dramatic Society, Prospect.
The next performance of the season will take
place at the Theatre Royal, Prospect on".Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday, the 11th, 12th and 13th

comedy by F C Burnand, Esq, entitled "Betsy,"
will be produced. The performances will be un-

the Governor. Particulars in advertisement next

SANDY HOOK, N J, Jan 25.-The American
Line steamer St Paul, from Southampton for
New York came on the outer bar off Hotel
Brighton, Long Branch, N J, during a dense
fog between 1 and 2 o'clock this morning.
She was shortly afterwards discovered by the
patrol from Long Branch life saving station and
preparations was made to open communication
with her. The usual apparatus was hauled
to the place and brought into use. A shot with
the line attached was fired across the vessel, a
hawser hauled on board and a Breeches buoy
sent off. The people, however, all desired to
remain by the vessel as there was no danger.
Messages were sent ashore notifying the agents,
the Maritime Excharge and wrecking compa-
nies of the accident. Crews from the Sea-
bright Monmouth Beach and Long Branch life
saving stations are all in attendance on the
steamer. When the surf goes down a little
more they will launch their surf boats. The
StPaul is stranded opposite the East end that
is between Long Branch and New Long
Branch. She was rolling heavily when she went
went ashore but is resting easily. No passen-
gers as yet have been taken off and messages
received over the buoy state that everything is
allright on board the vessel. Both the Merritt
and Chapman Wrecking Companies were noti-
fied and their steamers were immediately dis-
patched to the steamship. The St. Paul has
about 200 mail bags on board Another steam-
er supposed to be the Campania is at anchor a
mile down the beach. She came very near
going ashore also but was signalled by the life
saving station and succeeded in keeping off.
It is believed some of the freight will have to
be lightered as it was nearly high tide when
she went ashore and the next tide cannot be
counted upon with certainty to float her. The
fact that the wind has changed to the West
threatens to make the work of getting the ves
sel off much more dilfic:lr than it otherwise
would have been.

General Calixto Garcia, the most distinguished

watchful eyes of the Spanish agents and sailed
from this port on Thursday, it is stated, on the

Garcia goes to Cuba at the head of the most for-
midable expedition that ever left this country
which he will take command of on the high seas
where he will meet another fruit steamer, Jasof,
with over 300 men on board and a large quantity
of arms and ammunition. From those familiar
with General Garcias' plans it is learned the expe-
dition will at once make for some point near the
boundary line of the province of Pinar Del Rio and
the province of Havana. Gen Gomez at a point
agreed upon for the landing of the expedition will'
have a strong body of troops.

LONDON, January 23--The Admiralty received

that the British cruiser Blonde, with the body of

despite her grief and consequent nervous condition
busied herself with the consideration of state pa-
pers throughout the forenoon. Sir James Reid.
Physician in ordinary to the Queen, issued a bul-
letin this morning saying that;-" the Queen and
Princess Beatrice though in excellent health are
overwhelmed by grief at the sudden and unexpected
bereavement in the death of Prince Henry of Bat-
tenburg." The Daily Chronicle says:-Emperor
William of Germany.was almost the first to send*
a message of condolence upon the death of Prince
Henry of Battenburz to the Queen and Princess
Beatrice. Emperor William's message was couch-
ed in the most kindly terms." Despatches receiv-
ed from Osborne say, the Queen passed a very bad
night. She was restless throughout, and was in-
disposed this morning. Her grief at the death of
Prince Henry of Battenburg is almost as profound
as that of her widowed daughter Princess Beatrice.

EM Commander Cheyne, R N, wishes through
the columns of the "Royal Gazette" and Col-
onist" to tender sincere thanks to the Press and
public in Bermuda for their hearty support and
appreciation of his lecture on The Great Search
for Sir John Franklin," and at the same time to
express regret at the crush that took place for ob-
taining seats. The most assuredly shall not again
Oicr, as vtwo separate doors will be open, one for


War i -ing enterttiinmenit on Egypt and the
War with Arabi Pasha," as advertised in due
course for Tuesday, 4th February, the north door
will be available for reserved ticket holders only,
the west door for unreserved. Will the public
kindly bear this in mind, and also take their tick-
ets at the Gazette Office as early as may be
convenient. Although Egypt will not be quite so
lengthy as The Franklin Search, yet it is desirable
for all seats to be occupied by eight o'clock, so that
the entertainment may begin punctually at that
hour. Application has been made to the Commit-
tee of the Mechanics' Institute to have chairs
numbered to further facilitate seating.

Burns' Anniversary Supper.


This Entertainment held on Saturday night last
was favoured with pleasant weather so that a oom.
pany of about eighty persons of all ranks were
able to duly celebrate the one-hundredth and
thirty-seventh birthday of the immortal bard,
Robert Burns. It was entirely fitting that Ber.
mudian Scots should celebrate the day this year,
the centenary of his death. It was the first event
of the kind in Bermuda. An informal reception
of visitors from Ireland Island was held from 7.30
to 8 p.m. The company then sat down to an ex.
cellent repast prepared under the direction of Miss
Wilson, one of the committee of arrangements,
That famous Scotch piece-de-resistance the haggis,
so enthusiastically praised by Burns was duly
preed.
In a few well chosen words the croupier the
Rev. Alex. Christie, of Warwick Pras. Church,
indicated the object of the meeting, and proposed
the health of the Queen, at the sime time feelingly
referring to the great loss the family of our belov-
ed monarch has sustained in the death of Prince
Heury of B1 ttenburt. The toast of the Army
and Navy was tien proposed and duly drunk.
C?,pt. Drummond, Leinster Regiment, (Royal
Canadians), responded for the Army and Mr.
Leuchars responded for the Navy in a very eredi
table manner.
Burns, the Patriot Bard, was next proposed by
Mr. Christie. The reverend gentlemen referred
to the wonderful influence that Burns' songs have
nad on the manners and thoughts of the Scottish
people, and to the uplifting character of his efforts.
Burns, be said, compelled, succeeding poets, in-
stancing the Lake pots and Scott, to go to nature
for their then es Previous to this poets had lived
in a dreamy atmosphere above all ordinary mor.
talks. Burns was content to occupy a place as a
man among men, directing his keen satire only to
th, reformation of abuses in Church and State.
The fact that Burns' Anniversary was celebrat.
ed annually throughout the whole English speak-
iog world was sufficient tribute. Auld Lang syne
was universal.
The toast of Burns was then drunk amid great
nuhusiasm.
After a short interval the musical part of the
programme was next proceeded with, but before
beginning this part of the programme the oppor-
unity was taken to tender a unanimous vote of
hanks to Miss Wilson, who so ably provided for
lie wants of the inner man.
A vote of thanks was also given to the Burns
committee and all others who had assisted to make
be affair a success.
The u musical and literary programme was then
rendered. It would be invidious to mention any
ae in particular as all participants acquited themrn-
lIves very creditably and as much of the pro-
ramme had to be reserved owing to the lateness
f the evening and to the fant that Sunday was
st approaching, we only give the names of per-
rmers and their parts.

KAFFIR


CORN.


Kaffir corn, first introduced on the American
continent fron the Kaffir country, in Africa, less
then a decade since, is still an unknown produce
to nine-tenths of the people of the United States,
writes a correspondent from Guthrie, Oklahoma.
At first planted here and there as a curiosity,
it was found to grow readily in all localities
and 'under all conditions, and experiment
developed the fact that it would mature a crop in
the dryest and hottest seasons on the high Western
plains. A more extended planting of the new
grain and a comparison of results obtained soon de-
veloped the fact that whether the season was wet or
dry, cool or hot, long or short, this new product
would thrive on all kinds of soils with the minimum
of care and cultivation, and, planted any time be-
tween the 1st of April and the middle of July it
would mature an absolutely sure crop of grain and
fodder before the frosts of autumn.
It will grow luxuriantly on the sod of newly bro-
ken ground, produce fine crops either on bottom or
upland, is a natural enemy of weeds, and will be
as clean with two cultivation as Indian corn will
be with four times as many.
It is rather slow in germinating and getting' a
start in growth, but is correspondingly sure, not
enquiring rains to sprout it, and when once well
under way it giows right straight along-cloudy
weather or bright, drought or rain, hot winds or
northern being all the same to it and seemingly of
equal benefit to its growth.
The stalk looks somewhat like a single shoot of
common cornjbut shorter, attaining a height usually
of from four and a half to six feet, and having
pointed leaves of a rich green color. The grain
forms in a head at the extreme point of the shoot,
where the tassel is on ordinary corn, the heads
being from seven to twelve inches in length and
six to eight in circumference, and when ripe look
like great white or red plumes standing proudly
erect.
The grains are almost round, a little larger
than a grain of rice and much resembling a grain
of wheat in interior structure.
There are two varieties, red and white, the
latter being the favorite crop, and the grains taken
separately compare in appearance most remarkably
with ancient descriptions of the manna sent the
.'dren of Israel during their wanderings in the
deser, and, coming as it did to the people of the
Western ains this year when wheat and all else
was so great 1 affected by the drought, it seemed
like another e n ply of manna sent by ths God of
Israel.
Though raised as ali experiment here anAd there
throughout the West for several years it vwas not
until 1895 that it became a prominent crop. When
the drought of last spring killed the wheat and
oats and seemed almost certain to ruin the corn, the
few who had had experience with the new grain
began to advise their neighbors to plant Kaffir
Corn as it would grow all right in dry weather, and
they could thus at least raise feed for their stock.
The newspapers took up the advice and soon every
farmer throughout the West was planting Kaffir
corn, utilizing the ground where his wheat and
oats had failed or planting on sod or scattered
patches where his early corn had been burned
out.
The planting was continued until well along in
August, the acreage being in many sections greater
than that ever devoted to a single crop. In Okla-
homa alone nearly 50,000 acres were planted with
the new crep. And every grain of it planted
grew and thrived to maturity, and before the sum-
mer was over the farmers began to wonder what
they would do with it all, They knew it was
good for stock, but there was not stock enough in
the Territory to begin to consume it, and the pro-
duct was yet so new thatlit was not recognized in
the outside markets.
Experience has already developed the fact that
it made a most admirable feed, either to winter
stock or fatten them for market, but, with an
abundance of the' grain on hand, Oklahoma farm-
ers soon discovered that it was better for horses
than either corn or oats, making them fat and
stout and giving them a sleek, glossy appearance.
Both horses and cattle not only like and thrive on
the grain, but do as well on the fodder as on the
best of hay, and will eat up the entire stock, even
after it is quite dry, and cows produce richer milk
and more of it than when fed on hay and bran.
When it came to feeding hogs it was found that
they gained flesh more rapidly than when fed on
common corn, and poultrymen have found the
Kaffir grain an' admirable egg producer, and when
fed unthrashed' the fowls are given exercise in
picking it from tht head.
The boys and girL/ soon discovered that it would
pop as well as pop-cora, the grains poping out
Thrge, white and tender, and women in the coun-
try found that boiled like rice the grain was ex-
cellent eaten with cream and sugar, that mashed
into a pulpy mass it made an admirable pudding,
and it was also a first-class substitute for hominy,
being prepared much easier than [the regular
grades.
Still the quantity produced was so great that
the people continued to wonder what they would
do with it.
The owner of the roller mills at Medicine Lodge,
Ean., on experiment bent, ran some of the grain
through his corn meal grinder, and produced a
meal pronounced in every way equal to the ordin-
ary corn meal, but he was not content with this,
but rigged up a special set of burrs and produced
a new product that bids fair to create a revolution
in the world's breadstnffs-Kaffir flour,
Some of this lour was taken by Mrs. I. W.
Stout, of Medicine Lodge, and made into light
bread. The bread was fully as white as bread


made from second grade wheat flour, and was
sweet and palatable. The flour was handled by
Mrs. Stout just as she does wheat flour in making
light bread, and thebread in no way resembled
corn bread.
Samples of this first batch of Kaffir bread were
sent to the various towns, and it was everywhere
pronounced equal to,.bread made from wheat flour,
the only difference being its dark color.' It is,
however io darker than the ordinary Graham
bread, and is pronounced much better in flavor by
the majority of tlpse who have tried it.
Nearly every woman in Oklahoma is experiment-
ing with the new products, and new uses are dis-
covered for them in the culinary line almost
daily, while the farmers and stock raisers are also
experimenting along their lines with increasing
success and satisfaction on every side.

CURIOUS FISH IN LAKE GALILEE.

In the Sea of Galilee-or Lake Tiberias, as it is
often called-there is a strange fish named the
Chromis Simonis, which is more careful of its
young than fish generally are. The male fish
takes the eggs in its mouth and keeps them in his
natural side pockets, where they are regularly
hatched, and remain until able to shift for them-
selves, By this ingenious arrangement the brood
is comparatively guarded against its natural ene-
mies ; it is easily fed, too, but it is a puzzle how
the little ones escape being eaten alive. A month
sgo, says a traveller, writing to a religious con.
temporary, I found in my net a number of Chro-
mis Simonis without eyes. Others of the species,
when I lifted them up, dropped a number of little
fishes out of their mouths, which swam away
hastily.

RUM, GIN AND CIVILIZATION.
(From The Nineteenth Century.)
The Mohammedan populations of West Africa
include those situated farl in the interior in the
territories of the Royal Niger Company. These
people are enthusiastic traders, the commercial re-
sources of the country are illimitable, and the
climate, though wholly unsuited for permanent
residence or colonization by Europeans, is by no
means hostile to traders and settlers of the white
races for limited periods. Nearer the coast, and
inclusive of the crown colonies of Sierra Leons,
the Gold Coast, Lagos, and the Niger Protectorate,
the Mohammedan influence gives place to pagan-
ism, and the conditions of development are entire-.
ly dissimilar. This coast belt is extremely rich;
gold abounds in the hinterland toward Ashanti,
but the present wealth of the whole of the mari-
time zone consists in its export of oil (from the
Guinea palm) and other vegetable products.
Hitherto, with the notable exception of the Niger
Company, our mode of developing this most valu-
able trade has 'been by importing millions of gal.
lons of noxious spirits, to the demoralization of
the native races under our protection.
Apart from the moral turpitude attached to
such a system of trade, apart from the fact that
some of the races thus demoralized are exception-
ally fine. and are capable of reaching a much
higher plane of civilization, instead of being de-
based to a lower one-apart, in brief, from the
moral or philanthropic aspect of the question, it is
obvious that this system of trade is shortsighted
and rotten. Industry, which it should be our
object to stimulate, is limited to the production of
just so much produce as will purchase the requis-
ite amount of spirit, and isa further enfeebled by
the very article of purchase.
The requirements of the natives, instead of in-
creasing with their progress in civilization and
comfort, remain stationary. Legitimate trade is
strangled and progress arrested. Moreover, in-
stead of exporting to these great markets the pro-
duce of Manchester, and Sheffield, and Birming-
ham, and stimulating thereby our home industries,
we aie content to ship the spirits made in Ham-
burg, while crying out that trade is depressed at
home. Nor is the native even given a choice, as it
would seem, in some cases, for an African Bishop
reports that at Ilaro there is nothing else in the

A NEW SUBMARINE BOAT.
A new submarine boat has been built by M.
Goubet similar to one which was much talked
about a few years ago. The form of the boat is
elliptic-lanceolate, with a length of 26ft 3in from
point to point and a maximum diameter of 5ft 9in,
but it is surmounted by a small dome about 15in
high. The material is bronze. the plates varying
in thickness between }in and fin, and the hull is
strengthened by ribs within and by three fins, of
which one is in the place of the keel and the
others severally on each side. The fins have the
chief purpose of checking rolling, and the lateral
ones form platforms for skeleton tubes, in each of
which an automobile torpedo rests. The torpedo
is driven by compressed air,-and leaves the tube
through the checking mecha-oism of its screw being
released. The immersion of the submarine boat
depends upon the quantity of water admitted to a
reservoir or expelled from it. The pumps for this
purpose are worked Jautomatically by a dynamo,
the motion of which is determined by a manome-
ter, thus enabling the. desired depth to be main-
tained. A like arrangement is employed to secure
the longitudinal trim of the boat. The craft is
propelled by means of a screw driven by a dynamo,
and there are oars on each side worked from with-
in through watertight bearings. The vitiated air
is expelled from the boat and replaced from reser.
voirs of compressed oxygen. The displacement is
about ten tons, and with all on board the craft is
calculated to preserve a mall margin of buoyancy,
but, in case of mishap, a weight of about 24cwt
can be detached from the keel, and the boat will
then rise to the surface. At slight depths a kind
of telescopic tube, having a length of some 10ft,
furnished with two reflecting prisms, will enable
an observer in the boat to see what is going on
above. In addition to being fitted for employ.
ment as a submarine torpedo-boat, the new craft,
according to her builder, can be furnished with
shears for cutting torpedo nets, cables, and the
connecting wires of mines, She is about to be
put under trial at Argenteuil, on the Seine.

THE GREAT WHEEL AT EARL'S COURT,
LONDON.
At a meeting of the Gigantic Wheel and Recrea.-
tion Towers Company (Limited) last week Admi-
ral Sir William W. Dowell, who presided, con-
gratulated the shareholders on the fact that the
receipts amounted to 23,410 in 15 weeks. The
number of passengers :carried was 480,000. The
expenses from the incorporation of the company
amounted to 6,836. Out of the balance 2,000
was carried to a depreciation account, 5,906 had
been absorbed by an interim dividend, and up-
wards of 1,300 in writing off half of the prelim-
inary expenses. A final dividend of 9 per cent,
making the distribution for the whole year 19 per
cent, was declared.

NEW WAR VESSELS.


Although over 300 additional workmen have
been recently taken on at Devonport Dockyard,
and 400 mechanics are working overtime, the offi-
cials will be unable to complete their programme
of work by the dates specified by the Admiralty.
The dates of the completion of the second-class
cruisers Talbot, Arrogant, and Furious, and the
sloops Algerine and Phcnix have been postponed ;
but the first-class battleship Renown is to be com-
pleted at the earliest possible date, as the Admir-
alty are desirous that she shall be ready for com-
missioning by July next. Over 8CO shipwrights
are now engaged on this vessel.


QUEEN VICTORIA'S CROWN.
Most of us have seen tha crown in the Tower,
but few of us know how it is made and how many
jewel, it contains. The Manufacturing Jeweller
sajs it is constructed of jewels taken from old
cr wns, and other stones provided.by her Majesty.
It consists of emeralds, rubies, sapphires, pearls
and diamonds. The stones, which are set in gold
and silver, incase a crimson velvet cap with a bor-
der of ermine, the whole of the interior being lined,
with the finest white silk.; Above the crimson
border on the lower edge of the band is a row of
129 pearls. Round the upper part of the band is
a border of 112 pearls. In the front, stationed
between the two borders of pearls, is a huge sap-
phire, purchased by George IV., set in the centre
of valuable pearls. At the back. in the same
position, is another but smaller sapphire.
The sides are adorned with 3 sapphires, and be-
tween these are 8 emeralds. Above and below the
sapphires. extending all round the crown, are
placed at intervals 14 large diamonds, the 8 emer-
alds being encircled by clusters of diamonds. 128
in number, Between the emeralds and sapphires
are 16 ornaments, each consisting of 8 diamonds.
Above a circular bend are 8 sapphires, set separ-
ately, encircled by 8 diamonds. Between eah of
thee 8 sapphires are 8 festoons of 18 diamonds
eahb. In front of the crown is a diamond Maltese
cross, in the centre of which glistens the famous
ruby given to Edward I. by Don Pedro the Cruel.
This is the stone which adorned the helmet of
Henry V. at the battle of Agincourt. The centre
of the ruby is hollowed out. end the space filled,
in accordance with the Eastern custom, with a
smaller ruby. The Maltese cross is formed of 75
splendid diamonds. At each of the sides and at
the back is a Maltese cross with emerald centres,
containing respectively 183, 124, and 130 sparkling
diamonds.
Level with the four Maltese crosses, and station-
ed between them, are four ornaments shaped like
the fleur-de-lis, with four rubies in the centre, and
surrounded by diamonds, containing 85, 86, and
87 diamonds. From the Maltese crosses spring
four imperial arches, composed of oak leaves and
diamonds. The leaves are formed of 798 diamonds ;
385 pearls represent the acorns and 54 diamonds
the cups. From the u-"* part of the imperial
arches hang suspended four large pendant-shaped
pearls set in diamond cupseach cup being formed
of twelve diamonds, the stems from each of the
four hanging pearls being encrusted with 24 dia-
monds. Above the arch is the mount, which is
made of 438 diamonds. The zone and arc are re-
presented by 33 diamonds. On the summit of the
throne is a cross, which has for its centre a rose-
cut sapphire set in the centre of 14 large diamonds.
Altogether the crown comprises 1 large ruby. 1
large sapphire. 26 smaller sapphires, 11 emeralds,
4 rubies, 1363 brilliant, 1273 rose diamonds, 4
pendant-shaped pearls, and 278 smaller pearls.
It is the heaviest and most uncomfortable diadem
,of any crowned head in Europe.'

Dr Von Blarcom, one of the most distinguished
physicians in Berlin, expresses the opinion, after
careful investigation, that coffee long boiled pro-
duces more indigestion than any other substance
taken into the human stomach, but that a simple
infusion facilitates digestion.
Mr William Waldorf Astor, the Anglicised
American millionaire, is inclined to be rather a
recluse than a society man. He rarely returns
calls, although visitors to his beautiful riparian
abode and to his house in town are always sure of
a kind reception. He is at present having an im-
mense wall of nine feet high built round a consid-
erable portion of his Cliveden estate.
In the isthmus of Tehuantepec is found a flower
which changes its color during the day. In the
morning it is white, when the sun is at its zenith
4it is red, and at night it 4j blue. It grows on a
tree about the size of a guava tree, and only at
noon does it give out any perfume.

Proceedings of the Honourable the
Legislative Council.

(NO 50.)-SESSION-1 895-6.
Monday, 27th January, 1896.
Pursuant to adjournment the House met.
Present,-His Honour the Chief Justice, President;
The Honourable the Colonial Secretary,
the Receiver General,
J. H. Trimingham,
". T. N. Dill,
W. H. Wilkinson,
R. D. Darrell,

At 12.80 o'clock p. m., His Excellency the Gov-
ernor attended at the Council Chamber in con-
formity with previous notification that he would
prorogue Parliament this day, and having taken
his seat on the Throne, and the Honourable House
of Assembly having, by His Excellency's command
been summoned by the Provost Marshal General
to attend there, and having attended accordingly,
His Excellency was then pleased to close the Ses-
sion with the following
SPEECH :-
Mr. President and Honourable Gentlemen of
the Legislative Council;
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Honourable
House of Assembly;
I am glad to be able at length to
release you from the protracted Session
which is now closing and if its results
have not been quite as satisfactory as its
promises it has left at least some marks
of progress and reform in your Statute
Book.
I have observed with satisfaction the
provision you have made for the more
efficient equipment of the Quarantine Es-
tablishment at Nonsuch Island and I trust
it will not be long before you place the
Government in a position to supply the
want alluded to by we at the close of the
last Session.
Although the prolonged discussions which
have taken place relative to the pilotage
service and administration have not result-
ed in the passing of any Act during the
present Session dealing with those difficult
subjects, they will I hope render it the
easier hereafter to agree on a measure
which while removing any just grounds of
complaint on the part of the pilots will
at the same time ensure the greater efficiency
of the pilot service as a whole.
I trust that the consolidation and
amendment of the Jury Acts may tend to
promt th Wth Li ,itL t.'>r,. t" .uit 3 n ,.d i i Lh .,i-
of justice.
The new Schools Act contains some
valuable amendments, although I observe
with regret that the more important pro-
visions recorpmended by the Board of Ed-
ucation for securing the better enforcement
of the law in some parts of the Colony
where it has hitherto been neglected have
not been accepted.
I am glad to see that you have re-
liev.ed the Governor of the Colony from
the anomalous judicial powers heretofore
imposed on him as Judge in Ordinary and
transferred them to a competent judicial
tribunal.
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Honourable
House of Assembly ;
In the name of Her Majesty I thank
you for the supplies you have granted for
the maintenance of the public service.
It is to be regretted that no steps
were taken by you this Session to provide
for the more efficient management of the
Gaol establishments.
Mr. President and Honourable Gentlemen of
the Legislative Council;
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Honourable
House of Assembly ;
I am happy to inform you that the
formation of the Bermuda Artillery Militia
Corps and Volunteer Rifle Corps has been
successfully carried out under the provisions
of Acts Nos. 3 and 4 of 1892.
I am informed that the work in the
West End channels now being carried out
under contract with Messrs. S. Pearson &
Son is rapidly approaching completion and
that it is expected the channels will be
handed over by the contractors to the
Government before the end of next month.
I sincerely hope that the efforts which
you have made during the present Session
for the better protection of the farming
industry of the colony by promoting union
among the planters may result in an early
revival of that degree of prosperity which
these islands, in many respects so favoured,


enjoyed but a few years ago, and that,
under the blessing of Providence, the har-
vest of the present Season may be both
an abundant and a profitable one.
His Honour the President of the Council then,
by Command of His Excellency, declared the Co-
lonial Parliament prorogued to Wednesday, the
4th day of March, 1896.

(No. 53.)
T. C. LYONS,
General, 0
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honour to inform th4
Honourable House of Assembly that he will pro'
rogue Parliament on Monday next the 27th instant
at half past twelve o'clock.
Public Buildings, Hamilton, 23rd January, 1896,
SAt the hour appointed for the prorogation o
Parliament, by direction of His Excellency thq
Governor, the Provost Marshal General stuntuoned
the House.
The House accordingly attended His Excellency
at the Council Chamber, when His Excellency was
pleased to close the Session with the following
Speech to the Legislative Council and Assembly:
[See Speech above.]
The President of the Council then, by command
of His Excellency' the Governor, declared the pre-
sent Colonial Parliament prorogued to the 4th day
of March next.
The Speaker having received "a copy of the
Speech, on the return of the House read the same
from the Chair.

Two Hours in the Arctic Regions."
On Thursday night Commander Cheyne, P1. N.,
delivered his popular lecture on The Great Search
for Sir John Franklin," at the Mechanics' Hall, in
this Town, illustrated by lime-light views. The
entertainment was under the patronage of Vice
Admiral the Commander-in-Chief, and Mrs Erskinc,
and His Honour Sir Josiah Rees, Kt., Chief Justice
(Chairman), all of whom were present. Many
officers of both branches of the Service, were among
the audience; the most influential families of the
Island were largely represented, and a strong con-
tingent of Winter tourists (both ladies and gentle-
men) swelled the roll.j
At the minute of opening the door, quite a crowd
were awaiting admission, many of whom had not
previously secured tickets, the result being that
the few tickets unsold were speedily bought up,
and seats were at a premium; many gladly availed
themselves of standing room, while no inconsider-
able number had to go away disappointed,-eight
o'neoek, theil? lOi" nnnOlced for coiln cuieu llf', con-
the general bearing of the audience indicative of
the expectation of witnessing an exhibition of
more than ordinary interest,-nor were they dis-
appointed.
Sir Josiah Rees (the chairman) in a few, well-
chosen words, introduced the lecturer, remarking,
however, that the introduction of a gentleman of
Commander Cheyne's Arctic notoriety, to an intel-
ligent audience, was almost unnecessary.
The lecturer then addressed the audience, pre-
facing his discourse-with a brief biographical sketch
of Sir John Franklin, mentioning instances of his
remarkable powers of endurance under adverse
circumstances, his cool forethought, keenness of
perception, and kindliness of heart,-payiug a
glowing tribute to the memory of the renowned,
but unfortunate, explorer,-whose worth and ster-
ling qualities, he said, words could scarcely be
found forcible enough to express.
Incidents of several search expeditions, illustra-
ted and explained, were the subject matter of the
lecture. Commander Cheyne was attached to
three of these, viz., Sir James Ross's expedition, in
1848; Captain Austin's, 1850; and Sir Edward
Belcher's, in 1852. Others mentioned were those
of Capt. Allison and Commander McClure; Capt.
Dr. Haven, and Dr. Kane (American); Capt. Pen-
ny's; Capt. McClintock's ; and Lieut. Swatcha's
(U. S. A.)
The lecturer emphasized his conviction that
"there is a North Pole," eulogized the efforts of
brave men of various nationalities who had en-
deavoured to reach the spot, and expressed his
belief that the Pole must eventually be come upon,
notwithstanding previous discouraging failures,
and most fervently hoped the object would be ac-;
complished in his day ; he cared not by whom-
American, English, or of whatever nationality-
so long as the Pole was reached, the news would
be joyfully welcomed by him.
In the manipulation of the stereopticon not a
hitch occurred, each view showing distinctly, al.-
though, as the lecturer remarked, he had to do the
work himself and lecture at the same time. Pre-
ceding each series of views of events co nnected
with the respective expeditions, was a splendidly
coloured map, on which the lecturer pointed out
the routes taken, and spots at which certain events
occurred, thus materially assisting in the compare.
ending of the views that followed. And just
here we regret our inability to more fully impress


on the minds of our readers, who were so unfortun
nate as to miss the sight, the beauty and sublimi.
ty of those scenes, the majestically towering cliffs
and headlands, monster ice bergs, ships and men
in perilous positions, and the like, all so charac.
teristic of this strange and savagely cold clime in
which all civilized communities can never cease to
feel some interest, for the sake of the many brave
men who, on its dreary, ice-bound shores, have
found a final resting place; and Commander
Cheyne is to be congratulated on so successfully
catering to the public taste in his popular lecture.
To mention, at random, a few of the most strik-
ing views : of thrilling interest was the scene of
two ships just escaped crushing between closing
ice bergs, the rearmost craft actually having fet&
the contact, being caught in such a -manner as to
be "shot from between the bergs much in the
same manner as a nut may be shot from the finger
and thumb," and only with the loss of some rig-


going and a few other trifling damages. Another-
the process of cutting a canal in the ice to release
imprisoned ships, showing beautifully clear, green
water beneath, and the ingenious method of dis-
posing of the ice removed, by forcing it under the
main bed, was excellent; as was also those of a
Polar Fox, Musk Ox, a stuffed Polar Bear, in the
British Museum, (shot and presented to that In-
Sstitution by Commander Cheyne.) An Aurora,
Falling Snow, Shining Stars, appearing in various
scenes, were all beautiful and well worth seeing.
Doubtless, though, the most sadly impressive of
all were the three graves, with headboards, at
Beechy Island, (the first trace of Franklin discov-
ered). Cheyne at the graves, with dog and howl-
ing wolf-a most weird and dismal scene, sug-
gestive of thoughts by no means compatible with
the principles of total abstinence,-and, further
on, the discovery, by a subsequent expedition, of
the skeletons in a boat,-grim and silent witnesses
of the sufferings from bitter cold and gnawing
hunger by every man of those ill-fated crews in
that prison house of ice," ere
The Ice King came, with his eyes of flame,
And looked on the fated crew;
His chilling breath was cold as death,
And it pierced their warm hearts through !
A heavy sleep that was dark and deep,
Came over their weary eyes;
And they dreamed strange dreams of the hills and
streams,
And the blue of their native skies.
The Christmas chimes, of the good old times
Were heard in each dying ear,
And the darling feet, and the voices sweet
Of their wives and children dear!
But it faded away-away-away
Like a sound on a distant shore;
And deeper and deeper came the sleep,

Till they slept to wake no more !"
At the conclusion 'of the Lecture, the Chairman
stated that he had been requested by Commander
Cheyne to announce another Lime-light Lecture,
in a fortnight from this date. The subject would
be Egypt.-SEE ADVT. in another column.

Children's Fancy Dress Party.
We append below a list of the names and dresses
of the children who were present at Mrs. Yule's
Juvenile Fancy Dress Party on Friday afternoon,
the 17th, at the Prospect Theatre. One marked
feature of this most picturesque gathering was the
great variety of the costumes chosen and that no
two were the same. Where such-very great taste
and skill were shewn and where all dresses were
so good, it would be invidious to single out any
bright particular star, but we may mention a few
such as the little daughter of Charles I. in her
quaint and rich white satin frock, who ran it close
with the sweetest little carmen possible, and the
pair of Heavenly Twins who belied their names,
character, and behaved like angels. A very beaut.
ifully dressed and animated little Japanese Lady
seemed quite up to English names and customs and
one of our great grandfathers did not appear in the
least astonished at fin-de-siecle ways. We must
mention also a lovely trio of flowers: a Rose, a
Lily, and a Forget-Me-Not,-so real were they one
longed o-pijck nd wear them. Time and space
rge one. Every child lo0ke" charming and ap-
peared in the best of spirits, which was perhaps
due to the presence and liveliness of a contingent
of some of our future Admirals from the Crescent,
who all appeared in uniform except one, who,
dressed in blue satin, said he was a Little Boy
Blue, which did not in the least prevent him from
being a credit to his Queen and country. The
costumes were as far as could be ascertained as

The Bermuda Pocket Almanack, Guide
and Directory for 1896.

The Almanack for 1896 compares most favour-
ably with previous issues and will be found to
contain a great variety of information of value to
everybody, of especial value to visitors to these
islands. It is a digest of information in a handy
form at a reasonable price, and few can afford to
do without it. To Bermudians at home it is a
concise manual of perpetual reference on an infini-
ty of subjects. To Bermudians and others abroad
it exhibits what is in existence in these favoured
isles of the ocean. To visitors to Bermuda it is a
sort of magical key unlocking many a maze, and
guiding them into channels with perfect safety-
The Guide section is a treasure in itself, combining,
as it does in the smallest possible compass, the lar-
gest amount of information systematically arrang-
ed and easily referred to, and written in an attrac-
tive style, combining local experience with critical
fiotes drawn from a perusal of letters, descriptions,
and various sorts of matter that have from time to
time appeared of late years. The visitor, in the
Pocket Bermuda Almanack, has something to-
guide him while sight seeing here, and to remind
him, when conning over his travel notes of what he
has gone through, with.a,genial refresher of an ex-
perienced pleasure. The Directory for St. Georges
and Hamilton will be found quite extensive enough
for general purposes. The postal information is
replete with all requisites. The various Public-
Offices are detailed, Courts, &c., and the Constit-
uents of the Army and Navy on this station are
all given with great care. The Gardener's Calen-
dar is especially of local value, but not devoid of
general interest. The Statistical Tables are par-
ticularly interesting and of great value. Here and
there are occasional Memoranda, whose perusal
cannot fail to please, such as the Summary of the
Cruises of the former Flagship Blake while on this-
station. The Blake was brought out prominently,
a participator in the Columbian Demonstration at
New York, a welcomed visitor in Boston Harbour,
a bearer of relief from Halifax to St. Johns, New-
foundland, after the Great Fire in 1892, a visitor
at bt. John New Brunswick, a frequent cruiser in
the Gulf of St. Lawrence and up the idver as far
as Quebec in addition to the usual Bermudian and
West Indian sailings. The Advertisements are
not the least interesting feature of the Almanack
which finds its way all over the world as the An-
nua Exponent of Bernmda, and ion as
alive to the excellent 1eng so widely dissem-
an advert carefully preserved and referred to.
6 i896 Advertisements are both bulky and ver-
satile and rather invite a perusal from their neat
sIe - Pd their cunningly devised matter.

does credit to Bermuda in the quality and the get
up of its matter, and is calculated to more widely
and well advertize these islands. An annual pub-
lication produced in the first instance to supply
local wants; its mission abroad in the second in-
stance is the more valuable, because bearing an
honest exhibit on its face, not a special get up to
draw custom for the moment. The late Mr. S.
Nelmes had great experience in books of all sorts-
and in Almanacks he was well versed. He always
spoke of the Bermuda Pocket Almanack in the
highest terms as alike creditable and serviceable ;
and, being yearly revised, was a reliable handy
volume to all in quest of information regarding
the Bermudas.


PEMBROKE HALL, Jany. 27th, 1896..
The Editor the Royal Gazette.
Dear Sir,-Quite recently I sent our Architects
for the restoration of Trinity Church, Hay & Hen-
derson, 12 Queen St., Edinburgh, a number of
photographs taken by Mr. W. H. Heyl. Mr. N.
E. Lusher, Richardson & Astwood and J. B. Ast.
wood, all of which they speak of in the highest
praise, as in every way well executed. Of Mr.
Lusher's varieties of views of Trinity Church, as
far as restored, they make particular mention as
being both well taken and well printed. Mr.
Henderson details some of the many difficulties he
has personally experienced in obtaining good pho-
tograph views of architectural work, even by pho-
tographic artists of eminence in both London and
Edinburgh; and he is the more gratified at view-
ing such excellent results from Bermuda, in a
structure which has occupied so much of his time
and study; views which have enabled him to
judge how accurately the working drawings have
been carried out, and to form a better opinion of
the actual situation, as we have the happiness of
viewing it on the spot.
I think it, therefore, only right to put in a good
word for our local photographic artists, when they
deserve it. Those who desire to take away a few
views of Trinity Church Restoration, as far'asloom-
pleted may rest assured that they will, possess ex-
cellent pictures. Bermudians themselves would
do well to acquire a few views of things as they
are, as historic points of an attained progress;.
which should, at no distant day, go on still fur-
ther, with a little hearty united effort, to a really
splendid completion, Yours truly,
THOMAS S. REID,
