daughter of " the geoiel.host. Though
large, the company was mainly composed
of the relations of the families of the bride
and groom, with a few.frieuds. The mar
riage ceremony was rondered mere deli
cately interesting" from the fact that the
lovely and accomplished bride is just
convalescing from quite a serious illness
the marriage having heretofore been post

accomplished and handsome young phy

Every fifteen minutes by the wateh"
there is a grand eruption of water, which
instead of putting out the flames "drives
them in sheets above the highest trees,
and falls iu showers for a considerable
distance around the well." The scene at

scribed by the Sarnia Obserwr: "The

is said to be strongly impregnated with
sulphur with the flames produces effects
in color which are dazliug in their bril

spectacle especially if witnessed at night
is indescribably beautiful, and its effect
is heightened by a slight dash of weird
ness caused by the unusual color of the
flames, and the corresponding reflection
which it throws ou the foliage of the sur
rounding trees. The birds seem to be
paralyzed by the unwonted illumiuation.
All night long, so the drillers say, they

cries f alarm, aud become either so

A TRUE STORY. .
Twenty miles from camp, and night
approaching. A ytung home mis
sionary, working for his Master in one
of the mining communities of Colora
do, found himself in this situation one
day and was beginning to look about
him for a desirable place in which to
spend the night, when, a little way
ahead, he descried a rude cabin.
Approaching nearer, he saw it was
one of the poorest of those rough hab
itations, and much of the "chinking"
between the logs had fallen out, ren
dering the place additionally uncom
fortable. "Such a place as' that is surely de
serted," said the young minister to
himself; "and I am inclined to think
I would rather sleep aut of doors to
night than inside of that shell, even'
if it should prove to be inhabited by
one who would make me welcome."
At that monieut the sound of song
floated out through the openings be
tween the logs, and our traveler stop
ped his horse to listen to the man's
weak voice singing that dear old
home-song "The Home of the Soul."
"Oh, that heme of the soul ! in my vision
Its bright, jasper walls I can see,
Till I fancy but dimly the veil intervenes
Between that fair city aad me."

of the listener outside.
"I must see the man who can sing
like that in such a place as this,"
thought the missionary, riding up to
the cabin and alighting from his

"Dying alone, in this situation,
twenty miles from the nearest camp,
still his look into the beyond seemed
so clear, so real, tnat the language of
the hymn he feebly sang was indeed

missionary, aa he related the incident
afterward. "He died that night, and
I have never ceased to feel a thrill of
thankfulness whenever I think of him,

ing Pasqualc Toencelo, aged 21 year,
an Italian living iu tenement house
No. 56, Thampsou. street, shot his
wife, Catharine, through the head
and killed her on the spot. Turning
upon his mother-in-law, Maria Val-
entu, lie shot her through the head,
and next shot himself through the
neck. Then, bes nattered with the
brains of his two victims and drip
pring with blood, he went to Prince

up. The police, procured an ambu
lance and sent Maria Valenta, who
was still alive $ut with the bullet in
her brain, to &t. Vincent's hospital.
Her wounds are mortal. The mur

of recovery. His young wife was only
14 years of age, and her mother 32.
The greatest excitement exists over
the affair in Italian circles. .
