Havana, Feb. 17.—At a quarter to 10 o'clock tbisevening a terrible explosion took place on board the United States battle-ship Maine, in Havana harbor. Many were killed or wounded. AH the boats of the Spanish cruiser Alfonso NHI are assisting. B yet the cause of the explosion is not apparent. The wounded sailors of [ a jne are unable to explain it.

Looking for a Suhstitnt*. The condition of the rubber trade brought about by the increased demand and the many new uses for rubber, has excited a great interest in the possibil ity of inventing a substitute. In England a substitute called "oxilin" was claimed to be a substi tute, and a clergvm;tn of Denver, Colo., invented a substitute called "perchoid" for which the same claim was made. Those substitutes are identical in' their composition, being made from linseed oil, the composition known as linoleum being the suggestion of bothj inventors, but the oil in the new com-; position is not fully oxidized, litharge" being need and currents of cold air. Continued experiments yielded a more' and more elastic substance, and it was found that with sulphur quite similar effects were produced, comparatively, as with rubber. Oxilin and perchoid can also be vulcanized, but in no case was it able to fulfill all the require ments of rubber. For bicycle tires it has bet-n found to serve quite wel...

The vessel went to Havana on a friendly visit and was entitled to | full protection. It was proper that j extraordinary precautions should be , taken to insure her safety.

SHOT AT KING GEORGE. Desperate Attempt of Would-Be-Assas • iii«. Who Escaped. Athens, March I.—An unsuccessful attempt was made today to assassinate King George. The king was returning from Phaleron, at 5 o'clock in the evening in a hindau, accompanied by the Piinoess Maria, when two men, who were hidden in a ditch alongside the road, opened fire with guns upon the occupants of the carriage. The first shot missed, but the second wound ed a footman in the arm. The coach man whipped up his horses and the royal party dashed away at a gallop. The miscreants fired seven more shots after them, none of which took effect, and the king and the princess returned to the palace unhurt. The king states that one of the assas sins was dressed in gray clothing, and his majesty declares he could easily identify him. When the second shot whizzed pact the carriage, the king rose and stood in front of his daughter, in order to shield her. One of the horses was slightly wounded. One of the assailants kn...

A WORD OF ADVICE r© Those Comlnf to Alaska or the Klondike Go.ld Fields. One thing should be impressed upon every miner, prospector or trailer com ing to Alaska, to the Klondike, or the Yukon country, and that is the neces sity of providing an adequate and prop er food supply. Whether procured in the States, in the Dominion, or at the supply stores here or further on, this must be his primary concern. Upon the manner in which the miner has ob served or neglected this precaution more than upon any other one thing will his success or failure depend. These supplies must be healthful and should be concentrated, but the most careful attention in the selection of foods that will keep uniraparied indefi nitely under all the conditions which they will have to encounter is impera tive. For instance, as bread raised with baking powder must be relied niton for the chief part of every meal, imagine the helplessness of a miner with a can of spoiled baking powder. Buy only tlie very best flour; i...

It takes pretty good management in feeling and care of stock and in han dling the milk to secure fair profits on the butter made, even from the better grades of cows. But no management, however skillful and scientific; no ra tion, however well balanced, can make the production of butter from a very large number of the cows, as we find them on average farms, profitable at all. Many— great many— the cows in the country do not fully pay for their keep. That is a deplorable fact, and from the study of station and other reports I find that there are many such unprofitable cows, even among those that are considered of ...
