FOR THE VOLCANO
Nature's Grandest Wonder.
THE TALK OF THE BIGGEST
TOWN KNOWN TO MAN.
Torn Finery and Bruised Toes at the
Queen's First Drawing Room How
Lord Salisbury Rebuked the
"The first drawing room," says Lou
den Truth ''was a very large one,-but
there was exceedingly little beauty
among the company. The dresses and
jewels were magnificent."
"The crushing and crowding of the
various barriers wtrc worse than ever,
and there were some violent altcrca
tions and furious appeals to the be
wildered officials. Several ladies had
their trains dashed from their arms,
with the result that they came in with
the train extending in front for some
yards, and tw.j or three narrowly escap
ed awkward falls. Others had their
bouquets utterly destroyed, and many
entered the Throne Room with dishev
eled heads, t rn veils, broken feath
ers, and crushed sleeves. Some ladies,
indeed, presented as lamentable ap
pearance as if they had been engaged
in a free fight. Two had most pal
pable bruises on their arms, and an
other complained, with pardonable
acrimony, that she received a severe
blow on her neck from the cocked hat
of "some savage' who had attempted
to push past her."
Lord Salisbury and the Time Gun.
While Lord Salisbury was giving his
reply to the deputation from the Liver
pool Chamber of Commerce in the
Town Hall, an incident occurred which
at the moment was a little embairas
sing, but which was also not without
an amusing side. Every day at i
o'clock a time gun is discharged on
the Hirkenhead side of the Mirsy,
being fired by electricity from Hidstun
observatory. The gun went off on
that day just as the noble Maiquis was
speaking about West Africa as the
country we should look to to afford
new markets for our goods. Instant
ly, by force of habit, nearly every man
in the room took out his watch to note
the time. This was quickly noticed
by Lord Salisbury, on whose counte
nance an embarrassed look suddenly
appeared, and with some apparent ap
prehension he expressed the hope that
lie was not keeping his audience too
A Lord with a Hobby.
No member of the House of Lords
lives in greater retirement than Thomas
Lyttelton Powys, liaron Lilford. This
is owing not so much to disposition,
perhaps, as to the unfortunate fact that
he is a cripple, and moves about in a
wheeled chair. His hobby is natural
history, some departments of which are
more completely represented in his
museum than in any other. He is one
of the greatest living authorities on
liritish birds, and never allows anything
in the market bearing on this subject
to escape him. He is said to possess
the only two black woodpeckers in
"Pegging out," writes Mr. Labou-
cherc, has been the ruin of many em
pires. Athens was ruined because it
took to "pegging out," claims in Sicily.
Rome would have been ruined long
before it was had not the wisest of its
Emperors taken up the pegs that his
predecessors had inserted beyond the
Danube. Napoleon the First would
never have lost his throne had he not
endeavored to mould Europe in the
French character and taken to "pegging
out claims everywhere. And the
British Empire will perish by expansion
if we do not abate this "pegging out'1
Has Traveled 3,494.452 Miles.
One of the world's greatest railway
travelers is Mr. Hen. leans, who is em
ployed on the Great Western Railway,
and has been a passenger guard for 50
years, having joined the service in 1042,
He is 74 years of age, and, after allow
ing for holidays and illness, has travel
ed the extraordinary number of 3,404,
472 miles, never havinu met with an
The Rainiest Day and Hour.
Mr. Glaishcr, the aeronaut, asserts,
after long and patient investigation
that the ninth day of the moon is the
most rainy of the whole 28, and that in
the first and last weeks of the moon's
age the rainfall is less than the average
The records kept by Mr. Glaisher also
indicate 4 o'clock in the afternoon as
the rainiest hour in the day.
She Kissed the Blarney Stone.
Lady Aberdeen a few days ago made
an excursion by moonlight to Illamey,
and there, by candlelight, kissed the
"lilarney Stone, in order to quality
herself before going out to the Irish
Villace at the Chicago Exhibition
where she is to be at home most of the
time in a cottage with a thatched roof.
The Silver Bomb.
A new play, entitled "Prince Kara
toff" the second a being long is to
be put in rehearsal at once by Mr. and
Mrs. Kendal at the Avenue theatre
London. In this Mrs. Kendal will
play a Nihilist, and the central interest
lies in a bomb made of silver which
passes as a drawing room ornament
The author is Mr. Harry Dam.
There are curious features in th

tne nineieenin century, unc ciause is
to this effect: "Boon Work, etc. The
tenant to do four days' boon work an

a cheese of average weight for the
landlord's use." Until recently it wa
the p'casing privilege of the tenants to
cart coal to Arley Hall, but this "boon
work" is not now exacted. The cheese
however, still has to be delivered.
