LOST Of ISLE fiOTlL.
Thirty-eera Pespli Vrzwtei fcy ft Wreck on Lake Sspericr. Winnipeg, Man- Kot. 9. Tbe Pteamt-hip Alfroma, belonging to the Canadian Pacific Iiailroad Company, was wrecked in a lerri6c gale on Thunder Bay, Lkte Superior, on Saturday night, and thirty-wren live were lost. She had left 0reo .Sound on Thursday,and waa bound lo Point Arthur wnen the dsaster xurred. The firrt knowledge of tiie calamity wan received when the cteamer Atbalasca,of the aar.ie line, reached Port Arthur late this even ing with the crew of the Algoma, numbering thirteen, and two paa ;tigers,who were the only ones sav ed. The Athabasca, which left Owen .Sound two days after the Algoma, arae upon the wreck at Iele Royal, Thunder Bay, and found the crewi and two passengers in a perishing condition on the island. The wreck had been dashed by the furious, waves against the rocks and finally beaten against the ehore of the is land. Tue crew and two passen gers saved themselves by taking to a life boat and battling with the waves until the 6hore was reached. Tbe boat was capsized several times bv waves but righted again, while the men clung desperately to its tides. When they reached land they wre almoct dead from expos ure and exhaustion. The storm con tinued to rage furiously all night long, and the rescued people re mained on the beech watching the wreck beat against the rockbound island, and seeing the dead bodies (lapnil oy me sun ",aiu?v si lore. II OVF.KISG THE vnEK. The Athabasca came along at noon to-day, and, as tbe channel is narrow, could not avoid seeing the wre k and distress signal of those on the island. A boat wan sent ashore and brought the rescued to the Ath nbaca, which set sail ior Port Ar thur, where she arrived at 7 o'clock this evening. There u intense ex citement in this city to night as many had friends on board tbe wrecked boat A list of the cabin lasengers can be had only at To ronto or Sault Ste.

Dudgean, a dry goods mer chant of this city .received atelegram announcing that his wife and two children are among tbe lost. Thev were on their way to Ontario. The Algoma was a splendidly equipped Clyde steel f-teame r of 17 -SO tons. The vessle cost f 4-jU.XM and is un derstood to have been insured for jOO.IKH She wa one of the three steamers, the AloerU,Athabasca and Algoma, purchased two years ago by the railroad company for the hike traflic, since which time she bus bwn plying steadily between wen Sound and Port Arthur. Cap ttiu Miwre was muster of the vessel ami a nephew of Hon. Alexander M ickennn was purser. STOItlES OF M'RVIVORS. One of the survivors tells the fol lowing story : The steamer left Owen Sound Thursday afternoon with thirty eight passengers, principally Can adians but there were some few Americans. All went well during ttie early part of the voyage, and the vessel passed ud St Mary's Kiver to Sault Ste. Marie, where she coaled. It was Friday about noon when she passed tbe latter place and soon after steamed out into Like Superior. The weath er was calm, but as the evening ad vanced signs of storm were brewing. When spoken to by passengers Cap tain Moore shook bis head ominous ly and all realized that a storm of unusual severity was brewing, but the Algoma held her course toward Port Arthur, while the storm in creased in fury and caused the great waves to pound the vessel, which was tossed about II Ice a feather. As the night wore on the 6torm seemed, if possible to increas in violence. Snow and sleet descended and the elements appeared in their angriest mood. Some passengers retired to their berths, but the majority, who were suffering from nausea, kept watch. At the time when day should un W ordinary circumstances break, darkness continued, for the snow storm had not abated and the atmos phere was lerriblv thick. The steam er still held on her way, and, as fair progress bad been made, notwitu standing the severity of the storm, it was thought that the Isle Koyal, which is a short distance outside of Thunder Bay, and about forty live milt from Port Arthur, must be near at hand. Tbe island is long, but comparatively narrow and rocky, and its vicinity is treacherous, owing to the large number of reefs iHout it. The channel by which the bay is entered runs close to the inland, and Captain Moora realized the necessity of progressing with the utmost care. Fog horns were blown and signals of distress sounded, and the speed of the boat was reduced, but as the storm continued to rage it was impossible to determine ab solutelv what course the boat was pursuing. Suddenly a great crash was heard, and the vessel rebouoded and quiv ered like an aspen leaf. "Good God!" paid the Captain, "she's struck; our doom has come." Ten seconds later all waa the wildest confusion and alarm. Those who were on deck screamed with fear, while the shrieks of the women were terrible to listen to, Crash, crash, and the stout vessel pounded the rocks. The cracking of the tim bers and the swaying of the vessel warned all that death in a terrible form was upon them. The relentless wind seemed to scream its satisfaction, while the enow and sleet drove against the half clad passengers. " It's no use to d '"son be the scene," said one inform ant Nothing worse ever ccurred on earth." In their madness, when the wares were washing tbe deck, a number threw themselves into tbe foaming oiuows. inhere, when a great wave would pass off tbe deck, which was e waving from Fide to side, were swept into the een like a feather. A few bung on to ropes or to masts, but the majority seemed to abandon themselves in the wildest alarm and despair. - Meantime the lifeboat and its oc cupants had terrible experiences on tbe open, storm-tossed lake. All who could, bound themselves to tbe boat, while the remainder held on the sides, expecting every moment to meet death, either by drowning ar from exposure and cold, which was intense. Once the boat was washed over by the waves and one of Ae crew swept away, but the frail i craft righted itself and was carried inn i.i the comparative darKnesa. Af ter halt an hour's experience of this j description tbe boat suddenly struck some rocks. Tbe inmates feared all waa over with them, aa tbe craft cap- j sized, but to their great eurprise; when thrown out the water was only a few feet deep, and to their great joy they discovered that they were on land. After remaining there an hour or more exposed to the elements, the storm abated and the eky cleared. It waa then discovered they were on j the Isle Royal, and that the vessel had been wrecked about a mile from shore, on tbe great boulders border ing the channel. It waa about ten j o'clock in the morning, and tbe half dead crew remained there until af ternoon, when the Athabasca came along and picked them up. Farm Notes. Tobacco stems from cigar makers ! will afford lice proof hen's neeta. Do Dot try to farm too much land. It is much more profitable "to thor oughly till a small area, which can be manured and kept in good con dition, than to attempt to grow larg er crops at the expense of cultivat ing two or three times as much land as may be necessary under a better system. Give plenty of room in tbe stalls. Horses and cattle need rest in a re cumbent position just as much as men. It is not only exceedingly cruel but the greatest unwisdom to place them in such narrow stalls, or to so tie them that they cannot lie down easily and rest j A friend of the Jerseys and other 1 small breeds of cattle says : "Better j keep a cow that is worth but little j for beef, that will give you $50 or $75 a year in dairy products, than j to keep a beef animal that will yield ! only S20 to $30 a year, because in , the end she will sell lor a tew more dollars to tbe butcher. A dairy cow should not be considered at all from a beef producing point of view." "A bushel of corn, when compact ed into lard, or cheese or batter," s iys the New Orleans Timca-Dem-rral, "can find its market anywhere in the world where the cost of send ing the corn iteelt would make a market for it impossible. Besides this, in making the lard or butter a manurial residue is left on the land, instead of being carried away to fer tilize foreign fields. This is the ker nel of tbe argument for mixed farm ing instead of grain farming." , E. H. Hanley tells in the AVte Emland Iomente.ad how he t;eats j chukiog cattle. When a cow chokes j on apples he pushes down the an imal's throat a rubber hose until the obstruction is forced into tbe stom ach. He keeps on band for this purpose a one and one-quarter inch rubber hose four or five feet lng When the hose is not very stiff a stick may be put inside to give it the required tension. The rubber being smooth causes tbe animal no pain. As a rule, cattle and sheep relish their feed best as near the natural state as they ran get it ; grass , fresh and green, hay as nearly as possible to tbe condition it was in the field, and fodder bright and dry, without chopping or cooking. When feed has once been brought within reach of the animal there is no appliance that so thoroughly fits it for the an imal's use as the stomach itself; hence when com ha? been shelled for 6hep or crushed for cattle, fur ther preparation of this food only makes it less palatable. Oats are a food coming much nearer to tbe requirements of a well halanced ration than corn, and have long been considered a standard horse-food. They do not pack in the stomach like corn meal, because one-third of the oats is husk, and this is eaten with the concentrated part and renders the masticated food light and porous in the stomach. They also contain a much larger per centage of muscle-forming and bone building material than corn. This is why oats form the largest element in the ration of horses for fast work, but oats are often more expensive than other kinds of food for horses. Upon the question of feeding, and the difficulty of a formula for feed ing, the kind of animal must be taken into consideration. For in stance, cows more readily assimilate the nutriment of cut straw and rel atively of all woody fibre than hois es. Again, the feeder must take in to consideration the age of the ani mal and the kind of animal (cattle and (sheep require more bulky food than horses and swine), the natural temfter end disposition of the ani mal, whether it be kept for fatten ing, labor, breeding or milk, and the digestibility of the food. For in stance, if straw is a portion of tbe food more oats or otner nitrogenized grain must be given than when hay is fed. Chintfo Tribune. Colonel II. W. Wilson, in bis ad drees on lawns before tbe Massachu setts Horticultural Society.said that blue grass and white clover were un doubtedly the finest plants for lawns from tbe beauty and thickness of the turf which they make, and their delicious fragrance when mown. They are both fond of calcarious soils, and the only way that fond ness cn be met is by a free u?s of lime while making the lawn ; 20J bushels per acre would not be an excessive quantity for the soil when it is trenched or subsoiled. At least two bushels of plaster should be used with the annual top-dressing. An objectionable practice, which Colonel W. mentions, is that of sow ing oats or other grain with the grass seed, which puts the grass back nearly a year, and while tbe grain is growing it is no ornament. Tbe Death orAnimala. But what makes whales come oa shore when the feel ill ? It looks like suicide and may be. That birds and beasts in the same way go aside from their comrades is a pa thetic fact which is well known. Sometimes, no doubt, their friends desert them. They feel that the companionship of an en lee bled in dividual is a possible source of dan ger. Or, again, it may be that the 6ight of death is intolerable to them, just as it has been and is to many human tribes, who leave their dying to pass awar in solitude and will not remain to witness tbe last in firmity of maa. Whatever tbe ex planation, the fact remains that in the animal world, as a rule, creat ures go away and die by themselves, and the water-folk commit what may be called suicide by leaving their own element for one in which they cannot live.

ITCCIaE SAM'S VACCINATOR. lAsahable Scene Wlwmtit train from Canada Scenes on the trains from Canada into tbe United States during the smallpox epidemic in the Dominion, says Mr. Wm. Wilson, of Allegheny, who has just returned from an ex tended tour, were very amusing on account of tbe objections of passen gers to summary vaccination. Mr. Wilson, like many others, was made a subject for the lance before cross ing the linee, by an examining phy sician, whose business it was to ex amine all passengers bound for the United States, with a view to the vaccination of all the unvaccinated. He gives a very graphic description of some ol the laughable things be witnessed. The doctor, beginning with the first passenger in tbe smok ing car at tbe foremost end of the train, confronU him with the brief and pointed query, "Been vaccinat ed V If the answer is ye, tbe next question is, "Got a certificate ?" Unlets this can be produced tbe individual is compeiieu vo buuw " i . . mj i t, ! arm, weep, uuieso uinc ia a mwu scar.' tbe passenger is ..obliged to when, unless there is a lresn again undergo the operation or leave the train. Down into bis vest pock et goes the doctor, produces a little tin box in which he keeps the "points," off comes the lid, out come tbe ivory points', in a moment a tiny drop of blood appears on the sur face, the vaccine is moistened by the breath, the matter rubbed ctf upon the lacerated part and the job is done. Having finished with the passen cers in the 6inoking car, the next car, filled almost entirely with la dies, is visited bv the doctor. Here begins the fun ; those tight-fitting sleeves cannot be pulled up, and mayhap the certificate has been lft at home ; yes, it has ; honor bound, arid only two weelts ago, tbe iady declares, tshe was vaccinated by Dr. B , of Montreal. She will have tbe doctor send a certificate to the ex amining physician. No, thst won't do, and the law must be complied witb. A tug at the tightly-fitting jersey sleeve, another determined pull, and tbe arm is bared nearly to the elbow. "That will do," said the doctor. Out comes tbe little knife and points, aud thirty seconds later the doctor passes on, and the lady sinks back in her eeat with defiance flashing from her eye, and inwardly vowing that she will get even with that borrid man if she lives long enough. "I would not lie to you, sir, in deed I would not, sir," says a pret ty, brown-eyed damsel, 1 have been vaccinated." and the eves become moistened and the cheeks quiver as with suppressed emotion. But the old doctor was obdurate. Busi ness is business, and his business is to see that no one who is not prop erly vaccinated, whether male or fe male, leaves Canadian for United States territory. Pretty or ugly, it is all the same lo bim. "Sorry, madam, but I can't help it : either let me see your certificate or vour arm." She sees no sign of relenting in the doctor's face. Aeuin she tries : 'It was just a little while ago; in deed it was doctor, I can't show you my arm here. Can't you believe me?" No ; the doctor canuot, and will not. The girl sees it is no use, and reluctantly begins tugging at her waist. Donn it comes from the neck, the leit shoulder is exposed, then the arm. The doctor, evident ly, is not satisfied. "When were you yaccinated?" "Two years ago." "Scar is not fresh enough," says the doctor, and again out comes the scarifier and the vaccine. A scratch and ecream, but the physician is not daunted and continues tbe work, very gently, but with the air of a man who thoroughly understands bis business. "There, that will do," he says, and the girl, replacing he wardrobe, sinks back in her seat, while the doctor, passing on, is heard to rem irk: "She had never been vaccinated." Mrn or Extraordinary Strength. Many stories of strong men and extraordinary feats of strength are to be found in the annals of all coun tries. Ancient history abounds in them, and the hero of medimval chronicles was Ctsat Borgia, who, it is said, could fell a bullock by a blow of his fist. One of the mast extraordinary athletes that England has produced was Thomas Topham. who was born in London in 1711. The first proof he gave of his prodigious strength was pulling against a horse in Moor fields, and afterwards lifting a rolling-stone of 8(X) pounds weight with his hands only, standing in a frame above it, and taking hold of a chain that was fastened to it He could roll up a pewter dish of six or seven pounds as easily as another man could a sheet of paper ; hold a quart pot at arm's length and squeeze the sides together like an egg-shell ; lift 2 cwt with his little finger, and move it gently over his head ; he could lift an oak table six feet long, to which half a hundred weight was attached, with hi teeth, and, resting it against bis knees, bold it in a hor izontal position for a considerable time. He raised with one band a man weighing 27 stone. His head being laid upon one chair and his feet upon another, four people 14 stone each sat upon his body, which he heaved at pleasure. He could strike a round bar of iron about a yard long and three inches iu diam eter against bis naked arm, and at one Ftrok bend it like a bow. He lifted two hogsheads of water, heav ed his horse across a turnpike gate, and carried tbe beam of a house across his shoulders as easily as another man would a rifle. Once, finding a watchman asleep in his box in Cb is well street Moor fields, he took up tbe box and man in his arms, carried them some distance, and then dropped them over the railings into a place called Tyndall's Burying-ground. There was noth ing of the giant in his appearance ; he was in height about 5 feet 10, well made, but not strikingly so, and walked with a slight limp ; but what were hollows under the arms and bams in other men were in him fill ed up with masses of muscle. He once made a wager that three horses could not draw him from a post round which be clasped bis feet, and it was only by giving them a sud den lash and a twist that tbe driver succeeded in doing so, breaking Top ham's thigh at tbe same time. A Tbibetaa Dwelling. To begin, and in order to famil iarize a reader with the surround ings and conditions of life of the people under description, let us picture a tvpical Thibetan house: The outside walls are generally of stone, set in a very inferior kind ot mortar, but oftener in a bedding of puddled mud. When clay is avail able the builders much prefer to bare only tbe foundations of stone, and the walls above ground of well prepared clay, which latter they build up between plank molds. These are removed as each layer is finished, and raised to act aa molds for the next layer. The houses have two stories, and frequently there is a shed along one side of the roof, in which the inhab itants work when the sun is oppres sive. A great part of their work is done on the flat root, such as thresh ing grain, etc The ground-floor is devoted to the cattle, horses, pigB, eta Tbe fowls usually roost with the family on the first floor. The construction of tbe floor on tbe sec ond story ia sufficiently curious. Its main supports are cross beams ; on these smaller bet-ms are placed at right anelds, on which are laid slabs of wood; on these again are laid small twigs like broom, and then a coating ol mud plaster is spread, ou which tbe planks are filially placed. ! A hole is left in this floor for the -.,. UllA nf wood s.V " 7h, . t . .- . - ,k,,h ' which hole ascend all the effluvia from the animals below 1 There is only one door for the whole house. In front of this door there i generally a court-yard sur rounded by walls. All the manure and refuse is allowed to remain in eitn under tbe house, and in the court, all the year through, till short lv before tbe season for manuring the fields, when it is all collected into a big heap and left to ltrmeut there from a fortnight to three weeks after which it is spread oyer the land. The larger houses have one or more wings, and a veranda. The lloor forming tiie roof is made in the same way as the other, only there is an addition of cow dung to tbe mud instead of planks, and the plas ter thus made is beaten for days with slicks to make it amalgamate, as in India. All cracks, as the plas ter dries, are carefully filled up with fresh plaster till the whole is a good solid roof and floor combined, and very well adapted for threshing. Popular Sciem.-e Monthly.
