in eur Friday evening meetings, this
month—no meetings on account of raiu and
darkness every time. During December
we got along tolerably well—had favora

as Friday is called "uuluckey day" and so
is the night, and this accouuU for the
changing of our club meeting to Saturday

any of our friends of the Potter twp. Farm

to correct a mistake, which I am told came
from PoHer twp.—not a serious one, how ev
er—nothing more than that our Harris twp.
Club was turning into a Grange. We
would be pleased to bear from a member
of your Grange through your valuble pa
per—of its success and the advantages of
such an organisation, Ac. If being a
Granger be a good and paying investment,
why not go to work in all the townships
and organise ? We have an earnast desire
to make our Club what it ought to be. It
is en up-hill business always at first out

again, and if clubs w ill net lake, let us
have something belter. I tbink Harris

Auto|*y Commenced.
Ihe dreaded tcalpel was first used en
the connecting band between the two
brothers The abdominal cavilla* were
entered for the purpose of examining the'
viscera Thi* in vet ligation wat attended
wuh uioat gratifying tuccett, and the phy
sician* ware rewarded in their effort* in
finding that the lungs, heart, pancreas, !i
er, spleen, and ailiutcntary|canal werejri
cellently developed in each, and that all
the part* above named resembled ihoto of
ordinary mortal*.
Approaching the band, the lower por
tion of the enaiform cartilage, or breast
bene, in each join* by d>>ubiing or bend
ing out, making almost a long union with a'
distinct joint at the central point of union,
on which the bodies hinge freely. Thi*
joint i* somewhat similar to, but not *o
complicated at at the elbow. Tbe baud ai
the smaller part baa a circumference of
nine inches, and when Uie link was stretch
ed, and the twins were stood as far apart
as possible, there wat a space of eight
inches intervening. Yesterday the skin of
each body was cut through posteriorly,
and thrown back from the baud and ad
. scent structures, exposing superficial and
deep fascia or fatly tissues in the rectus
muscle of each. The great question of)
whether they cauld have been separated
in lite was
Settled iti the Negative,
by various abdominal sections which war*
made. Tba peritoneum or uietnbrannut
lining of the belly in each was found to en
ter tbe band, and four pouches er cuts
ie sae overlapped each other at tbe centre
of the band. The moat marked feature
here was the presence ot two uch pouches
from the body of the larger brother,
Chang, the upper one shorter lhantho low
er, but each lapping ene from above and
the other from below the single pouch of
Eng. An aluioat exact idea of the ar
raugeuient of theec cuts-Jc sac may be ob
tained by holding tbe drat joint of the fore
linger between the thum and linger of the
other hand. The
Astounding and Curious Fact
waa developed that a liue passing down!
the centre of the band would sever all
three of these prolongations, and open the
perilonital cavity of each Us er. If the
knife had beeh used in life, death would
have therefore most probably, if net ne-'
cessarily, resulted.
The examination yesterday and lart
night also showed that there was a portal!
or liner circulation through the heart, as?
was seen from the passage of (he injecting i
matter used in embalming. Tbe abdom
inal organs lie in close contact with these
pouches, but are not continuous unto
To-day mutt important investigations
will take place by making deep tedium
into the band with the view of ascertain
ing the umbilical oonnediout, bearing on
physieloigcal manifeautiont in the foetal
life of beings.
A Foreign Office despatch leaves no
longer any ruoiu for doubt of the death ot
Dr. Livingstone, this hero oi science, so
heroically discovered two years ago by
your held countryman, Mr. Stanley.
The newt comes direct fauiu Lieutenant
Cameron, whose Livingstone Relief Ex
pedition has been nobly prosecuting iu
tesrch for the great traveller only to meet
with the news of his death.
Livingstone bad returned to the scenes
of his first discoveries. Whether he had
actually traced or disproved the connec
tion of the great obaia of southern lakes
with the vast lakes on the equator we shall
know when Lieutenant Cameron comes
It is oct vol kaowa how far Livingstone
had succeeded in putting what be regard
ed as the finishing truifc (9 his labors. If.
as seems not improbable, be wa# on bis
way home, he may actually have bad jjrith
him the crowning discorery, and died
with the Nile secret in bis hand. It will
be remembered that after Mr. Stanley
found him at Ujiji, at the end of 1871, Dr.
Livingatono and the adventurous Ameri
can correspondent made a j >urney to the
, northern end of Tanganyika, and
found that lh Biu l ** river gowed into,
and not out of, the said Xbii 4V"
covery seemed to prove that the lake sys
tem which be had asplored and described
was not a part of the fountain-beads of the
mysterious river.
But whether Livingstone died after hav
ing completed his task or not, his fame is
by no means dependent on completing the
discovery of tba Nile's sources. Thej
world owes to him most of the information
which has caused the great blanks in tb l
maps of Central Africa to be filled. When
be went out to labor as a missionary l
among the Kcchuunas in 1840, the region
north of his field of action and south of
the Equator was unknown. He has added
over a million square miles to our geo
graphical knowledge, and has opened the
j dark contre of Africa to the light of knowl
edge and civilisation. JJe may be just'y

The Japan Mail says
The Government has taken very dect
, siv# steps te slop the rabbit mania which
j set in some mouths ago, and has imposed
taxes upon the keepers ot the animal*
which haa made them regret their pur
| chases.
j. The Japan Mail also publishes a transla
tion of a recent edict regulating the native
newspaper press, from whiji it appears
I that—
In case they have no bad tendency, the;
r following subjects are admissible in news
paper column* Kitraurdiuary natural
occurrence*, fire*, war, price*, produce, :
trade, birth*, death*nd marriages, official
notification*, literature, manufacture*.
1 amusement*, clothing, land and house*,
translations of foreign writing*, miscella
neous foreign news, and other unimportant;
(public matter*. NJ newspaper may be
established without official authorisation.
It is prohibited to attack the constitution
of the Government, to di*cus* the laws, or
to cast obstacle* in the way of the work
ing of national institutions by the persi*
tent advocacy of foreign ideas. It is for-
I' bidden to append uncalled-for reinarkt te '
the laws. Ac , which are published in the 1
.papers. Moral teachings must not be in-j
trodured in such away a* to injure and '
obstruct the Government. It is forbidden
to disturb or demoralize the uiiud* of the 1
jpeeple. It is forbidden to denounce man '
I for crimes on the faith of groundless ru- <
; mors. Editors must not take it upon 1
ihtmtelt es to publish remarks upon offi- 1
cials during their term of office, or their 1
iofficial conduct, or even anything, how
• ver trilling, which is connected with for
eign intercourse. All error* which may,'
have been made must be rectified. The '
editor is responsible for giving explana
i lions in regard to any matter upon which '*
lit may be necessary to question hiin.
The English papers published in Japan '
are a* a rule well printed and well sup- '
; plied with local new*. Prominent among *
these is the Japan Mail. The Siamese pa- *
per from which si have quoted is appar- 1
lently a new venture, but it ha* already I
competitors in the field. The East Indian <
papers do not seem up to the same mark 1
as those published in Yokohama and **
liong Keng, but, on the whole, journalism '
in the East seem* to be far more advanced 1
than is generally supposed.
New York, February A young wo- c

of the Sandwich Islands, died at hit pa
,g ace at halios, on the Island ol Hawaii, i
t>f ' bronchial disease, which had throatene
his life (or several months previous. II
lr death, therefore, was not altogdhor unei
i|. pected. Ihe now* was brought to Sa
in Francisco by the Australian mall stean
i j ship City of Melbouroe,'which touched i
Honolulu on her way cast.
„ King l.uualilo was boin about the yea
iNi i, and was a native Sandwich islandei
j He was a • outin |ef the late King Kama
j. hamcha V . but, owing lu his exceeding
1.1 ly dissipated habits, he was rarcl;
is thought ol before the death of that person
I, age at on# ever likely to succeed to tht
~ throne "I'rince Bill," as he was familiar
ly called by the foreigners residing ti
r Honolulu, was very popular with the las
mentioned class for the rate and frecJou
, of his inaiilier. It has been related of hill
, that, in his days of privacy, it was not a
. all an unusual thing for him lo be picket
1 up in a most undignified state of into sic*
I tioii in the streets of Honolulu.
"I'rince Bill" owed his title of king U
. the iseglet lof his predecessor, Kaiueha
, inelia V., to appoint as it was hit duly un.
i Jer the constitution of Kauiehameha 111.

the lllli of December, 1872, after a reign ol
I uiue years. Failing to name bis successor
Jan interregnum occurred, and the Legia
. latine was called together by the acting
Council of Kegoncy to elect a king or queen
to govern the country. The Legislature
mot on January V, 1873, and on Ibal day
"I'rince Bill" wa)elected, and was crown
| cd King of Hawaii under the title of Lu
jualilol. Previous to the assembling of
this Legislature its legal authority to elect
king was denied by a large and intelli
gent element of the population, whose de
sires at that time was lo establish a new,
i independvnl home government in which
' the people should have additional privi
lege* in the selection ot a ruler. Howev
er, "Prince Bill " was elected, and no op
position was manifested to his elevation
: l'he principal incident of his rather uu
: eventful reign was the report extensively
circulated several months sgo that oar
Government w as contemplating the annex
alien of the islands to the Lulled States,
and that again a certain Hawaiiac harbor'
was to be ceded to the United Stales.
If a late letter from Honolulu is to be
credited the death of King Luualito hat
been due to continued dissipation. U
had long been a sufferer from -iterate, and
when his doctor advised "stimulants," I
but in moderate quantiea, Kibg Lunalde
drank to excess and steadily. At the turn
the letter referred to was wtitten

a letter in the Commercial Advertiser, of 1
Honolulu, in which he expressed the most
liberal sentiments, showed himself to be
tbe friend of the United Stales, snd de
rlarcd himself unreservedly in favor of 1
the immigration of foreigners into the is- '
lands. Another possible candidate for the
throne is Mrs Pan ah i Bishop, whose hus

to the effect that there would be a sever*
