THE RUDDY SUNSETS.
Editor Ui-mxtis: Although my
tirtielo was addressed rather to the
public of Honolulu than to its scient
ists from whom I expected no
mercy and ntn not disappointed
the vigorous reply of the llcv. S. K.
Bishop shows me that I may have
unintentionally trod upon the corns
of at least one local writer. The
Rev. Mr. Bishop is, however, mis
taken in supposing that here in
Canada wc are too far removed from
the ruddy sunsets to study them
carefully, or that uc need his help
to put us on the right track or
rather the track that he thinks right.
"Dust, dust, Kiakatoa dust," has
been dinned into our ears for over
a year with more or less success,
as I have already pointed out. He
tells me to "follow up the earliest
appearances of these phenomena
' to their very beginning,
which is the only right way to go to
work." This is excellent advice,
which I advise him also to take.
The "very beginning" is the point 1
have not yet been able to arrive at,
but would submit to his wisdom the
fact that ruddy sunsets and sunrises
were very noticeable over portions
of Nortli America during the years
1837-8, and also thatanold resident of
Montreal, soon after the reappear
ance of the red skies in 188;) inform
ed me that lie had frequently noticed
similar phenomena at intervals
during his life. But perhaps Kra
katoa, or some other good-natured
volcano, was at hand in the past to
oblige. The Kev. Mr. Bishop ad
mits that I am "probably correct in
imputing" the ruddy sunsets to re
fraction by minute ice crj'stals.
This is very kind on his part, but
the cup of triumph is at once dashed
from my4ips when he adds that for
him to allow even this much my
poor ice pai tides must submit to
being saddled like Sinbad to his
old dust nuclei ; symbolical, it is to
are saddled and ridden by their
hobbies, and like their "dust" des
tined to reach the ground sooner or
later. My ice prisms, however,
spurn the proposed alliance as en
tirely incongruous. The Kcv. Mr.
Bishop is ready with conclusive
proofs, he knows to the hour when
the various phenomena began, but
gives not one proof to show that
dust would appear red in the posi
tion lie claims for it. We know
from experience that vapor clouds
consisting of frozen ice particles arc
often ruddy enough at morning and
evening. The ruddiest of all the
planets is Mars, in whose atmos
phere the vapor of water (ice) is
assuredly present in consideiablc
quantities, but whose volcanos have
probably exhausted themselves ages
since. The glows may have increas
ed at Honolulu with the approach
of "Winter, but here the fact has
been roverscd, they having been
much more common during the past
Summer than at present. The Com
mittee of the British Association had
not their dates down in such an un
broken string as the Rev. Mr.
Bishop, even after their sending
queries and getting replies from all
parts of the globe. The conclusion
reached by them was, as I.havo al
ready mentioned, that there existed
no positive proof of the dust theory.
Neither has despite all his positi
vism the Rev. Mr. Bishop any
tangible proofs. He has a theory
hardly original but I also have a
theory, and what to-day is generally
admitted as orthodox in this branch
of science, may next year be ex
tremely heterodox. The dust
theory is having its day, but may
ere long have to step down and out.
Why, only a few months since it
was impossible to get in a word
against it. As an "ice prismist"
I can afford to wait, giving the dust
plenty of timo to settle, although' it
has already taken the best part of
two years, and according to the dust
men isn't more than half tired out
yet. But the public are. The Rev.
Mr. Bishop has watched and studied
the rosy sunsets, and arrived at a
definite conclusion concerning them.
So have I. I did not adopt my
theory without a good deal of con
sideration and am not bound to be
lieve a tiling simply because another
says it. Until a balloon expedition
or something of the sort shall have
definitely settled the mullet I shall ,
retain my present opinion. 1 am ,
not surprised at him disbelieving in ,
tee prisms, Honolulu tins loo warm
a climate for him to lake much stock
in them. Were ho in Canada at
prcfcent ho would, I venture to 'say,
be less sceptical.

Dear Sir, I find the sale of Scigcl's
Syrup steadily increasing. All who have
tried it speak very highly of its medi.

as a "God-send to dyspeptic people." I
always recommend it with confidence.

all irritating substances, and leave them

Oct. 2-1, 1SS2.
Dear Sir, Iwiite to infoim you that
I have derived great benelit fioni
"Scigcl's Syrup." .Forsomoyears I have
suffered from liver complaint, with its
many and vaiicd concomitant evils, so
that my life was a peipetual misery.
Twelve months ago I was induced to try
Scigcl's Syrup, and although rather
sceptical, having tried so many reputed
infallible remedies, I determined to give
it at least a fair trial. In two or three
days I felt considerably better, and now
at the end of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a different being altogether.
It is said of certain pens that they "come
as a boon aud a blessing to men" and I
have no reason to doubt the truthfulness
of liie statement. 1 can truly say, how
ever, that Seigel's Syrup has come as a
"boon and a blessing" to me. I havo ic
commended it to several fcllow-suffciers
fiom this distressing complaint, and
their testimony is quite in accordance
with my own. Gratitude for the benefit
I havo derived from tho excellent pre
paration, prompts me to furnish you
with this unsolicited testimonial.
I am dear Sir,
