Wonders: or the N~or.
, b iliant writer in the Victoria
There are a few very curious things
aboutBritish Columbiarivers. Every
bodyknows that they flow in the wrong
direction while they are young. For
instance, the Peace and Liard persist
a gto the Arcticocean, in defiance
of th Jocky mountains and the laws
of nature, while the Columbia, Fraser
and Kootenay only consent to travel
seaward after going in the opposite di
rection some hundreds of miles. But
thyalso have very peculiar ways of
making ice, quite opposite to that laid
down in the text books. Inthe Skeena
I have-observed the ice in autumn to
form on the river bed among the bowl
dera in globules,- like a mass of fish
spawn. this often growing until the reef
actually reaches the surface, but more
often it breaks away in large pieces and
doats off down stream, bearing pebbles
and even bowlders for many miles.
There are many notural bridges on
our rivers also. In the Kicking Horse,
three miles below Field station, there
is:a rock bridge in a slate formation
which is inclined so as to present sharp
edges-very unpleasant to walk upon.
Every observant passenger on the Ca
nadian-Pacific railroad has noticed the
snow bridge on the Illecillewaet, but
there are records of ice bridges also.
I think Ihave heard of one on the
Homathoo river, but of the Stickeen a
marvellous story is told. " There is a
-" great glrcier descending out of the
high snowfield to.the north, and this in
ancient times flowed right across the
valley,meeting a lesser ice stream from
the heights opposite. The Stickeen
flowed under the ice in a tunnel, and at
very low water the passage was too
smallfor it, although the water must
have been banked up into a lake at the
A ssATREBED TRADITION.
=Now, the Sicane Indians of the up
per valley used to regard this tunnel in
the ice as leading to the "sweet by and
by." 'They. were therefore very anx
ious to avoid the place. But once the
tribe was encamped not far above the
glcier, and there was a very old man
and his wife with them who were- too
mean to die because of the expense of
giving a funeral feast. They were very
rich and of no use, and had large ap
petites,'and their relatives at last con
sented to part with them. They were
therefore set adrift in aleaky canoe and
consigned to the current, and all the
ple, conscious of self sacrifice,stood
n the bank and watched the canoe van
in the tunnel, and felt good. Now,
the old people were very frightened
hnd squealed a good deal, but when the
blue shadows of the ice closed over
them. they thought they were dead In
diana, and behaved accordingly. Pres
ently the old lady thought it was get
t!g light, and became curious and
looked about her. Then she kicked
the.old'man and asked if he didn't wish
they were at the funeral feast. Re
looked up and found the canoe out in
the open again, the glacier behind them,
and the *orld pretty much as usual.
They got ashore, cut paddles and poles,
and prepared to go home again. The
old man began to be hungry for the
grease boxes; the old-lady set her heart
on grease and berries, and they both
~Adetermined to get home for the banquet,
-since they had assisted at the funeral.

Not least among the natural wonders
of the coast is McKenzie passage, a lit

ts a chasm about six miles in leDgth,

broken peak, 5.6V>5 feet high. The
walls are very close together, .vertical

cold, unnsoved by the wind, and no liv
ing beiing enters its sohitude. I find
but two recorde of this place having
been visited by white men. Scarcely
less wonderful is an inlet tributary to

Some of the tide sluices are very dan
gerous, and many lives ha,ve been lost

early travelers, who found cataracts of
sawater pouring into many of the in
lets. They are explained by the exist
ence behind them of large basins filled
by the flood tide, the outlets being too
smali for itaready escape at the ebb.
Some of these sait water cataracts are
as much as twelve feet high. There is
a miniature example at the gorge, near

The utility of wire rope transmission
has become widely recognized. Not.
only among the rugged hills and moun-0
tains of the East and West where
streams go rushing down through
caverns and' rocky steeps, where no
locations for mills or factories are 1
afforded, is this means of transmission
of precious power appreciated, but it is
so convenient to use that we find on the
prairies of the West mills being oper- b
ated at a Jong distance from water
powers by the wire rope. A few days
ago, on a trip through Nebraska, we
ntticed a rope stretching for nearly a
mile from a water power to a mill that ti
had recently been built adjoining a
railroad, the owners fnding it much
more to their advantage to have it
there, with the switching privileges I
afforded, than at the dam. The ex
pense of hauling the flour which is
thus saved to them will very soon pay
for the system of power transmission.
Dr. Ilenry J. Buck, writing to the
I Lancet, says: "I have used this drug b
for mare than twenty years-I may of
say almost daily-and many of my tl
patients will not travel without a bottle g
of the 'magic lotion,' as they call it. I
find the simplest and most efficacious g,
way of applying it is to soak a large t,
handful of the crushed pods in half a o
pint of hot water for an hour, then d;
strain, and bottle for use. A teaspoon- g
ful of eau-de-cologne added will help c;
to keep the solution, or it can be well f,
boiled after preparing, I then have it n
applied to the affected parts on a piece u
)f linen folded three or four times, or e
on a lint, and covered with gutti per- I
cha tissue or dry flannel. In this way a
the lotion may be kept on for hours b
without vesicating, and in many cases t
the skin is hardly reddened. The h
stinging and burning sensation produced b
by the capsium lotion is, after a few I
minutes. welcomed by the sufferer, so
magically does It often remove the rhen- 51
matic or neuralgic pain for which it is sl
being applied. In acute torticollis a h
cure is often speedily obtained by cov- b
ering the side affected with the applica- o
tion. In any form of neuralgia, rhen- h
matism, subacute gout, pleurodynia,
and such like, it will be found most
useful, and may be reapplied over and
and over again during the day and
night without any fear of vesication." p
M. 1V. Tarren fnds, that when the
metal magnesium is heated in a current b
of ammonia thoroughly dry, and a
keeping the temperature below a red k
heat, it combines with the gas without
changing much in appearance, though
its chemical properties are much modi- e

a bright red heat, and burns, when red

Electrfiec Waz.-Some curious elec- t
trical phetaomena were lately observed
(according to a writer in the Chemische
Zeitung) in a stearin and ceresln manu
factory in Italy. One evening four vats I
of white ceresin -(which is a paraffngE

kg. each, were being stirred to cool. 1
When the point of solidification was I
nearly reathed, the electric light of the

observed to give pale sparks.

A Mother's Advice to Oi.
There is a thng-ot which 1 want to
speak, that is, of the behavior of:girls
towards young men who are not lovers
but simply friends. Let me tell you
plainly that our sex were not meant to
be wooers. The custom, prevalent
among a certain class of young ladies of
asking directly or indirectly the atten
tions of young gentlemen is not com
mendable.. "My son," said a lady to
me not lo g since, "is much prejudiced
against ay.ang girl whom I adore, be
cause she is constantly sending him
notes inviting him to be her escort
here and there and planning to have
him with her." A modest and digni
fled reserve, which is neither prudery
nor affectation, should distingaish your
demeanor to gentlemen. Too great fa
miliarity, and too evident pleasure in
the society of young men are errors in
to which no delicate and pure-minded
girl should fall.-&lected.

neighborhood worked all night skinning
carcasses. They will have mittton for
