vairiie.  hut   my  desire  lo see toy  old
chuin was real.
I found Molina living on Ills father's
plantation The premoiiltious of a serious conflict between the revolutionists and the Spanish government were
much more clearly denned than when
we were in college, nnd Henry's Interest iu It had also become luteusihed.
llllt 1 wus surprised to llnd that lm
was not openly advocating the Cuban
cause. Whether the interest ot his
family, fearing destruction or confiscation of the estate, prevented hlni
from doing so. I did not know. I judged Unit the daughter of u neighboring
sugar planter had something to do
with his failure to come out ns an advocate of throwing ntT Spanish rule.
This young lady, L'oneiii Sierra, was
tlie gentlest little body in Ihe world
She must have carried northern blood
tn her veins, for she had not the dark
complexion nf a Cuban. Indeed, she
wns a veritable blond, with light hair
and blue eyes. It occurred to me that
���he would restrain the man she loved
from taking risks, and thut,*he loved
Molina was evident to me the moment
1 saw them together.
1 soon found thnt there was another
force drawing Ipenry In the opposite
direction. This waa Inez de In tlarra,
one of a family whose members, all
except herself, supported the Spanish
cause. Inez wns hitter In her advocacy of tbe Cuban cause. Uulike the
Mollnas. tbe Iji Rnrras had little or
nothing to lose by Spanish untngonlsiu,
for they lived on a small estate and
were poor, though In Spain they bad
formerly been grandees. It was this
latter fact that kept them loyal to
Spain. Why Inez sympathized with
the Cubau cause I could uot understand.
Notwithstanding our Intimacy Henry Mollno did' not give me his confidence in these matters. Evidently
there was a rivalry for blm between
the two girls. Tbe one drew him by
silken cords, the other liy glistening
chains. Inez de la Burnt was entirely
Spanish. Ber complexion was olive,
ber hair jet black, while over her dark
eyes waved tbe long lasbes of a Spanish woman.
While 1 was tn Cnba General Weyler

"Where did you net your Information us to this move of the Spaniards'/"
1 asked
A singular look came over his face,
a look in which I fancied 1 saw something of doubt, ot pain, as he replied:
"I have the right lo tell you anything
thnt concerns only myself. I have uo
right to Implicate another."
"Well," I lidded, "you have taken
sides lit Inst. I hope you have decided
for tbe best.'*
"That remains lo lie seen."
We parted with a linn hand grip.
I went to bed, but not to sleep.
There was a faint glimmer of dawn
nt the windows whim 1 heard sounds
without���Ibe tread of horses' hoofs,
men talking. Then there was a loud
rap on the inn In door below. It was
not answered and was followed by a
kick.   Then u window wns shuttered.
I arose, threw oil a double gown and
went downstairs, The hull was lighted and tilled with Spanish soldiers.
Henry Molina was in their midst,
dressed, uud as I looked was marched
nwny. It was plain to me what had
happened, The wily governor had
through his spies learned of his contemplated move, nipped it In the hud
and possessed himself of Its leader.
My view of Henry Molina passing
out of his homo to go to prison ended
my Immediate cognizance of what was
leading up to a tragedy. If I could
have got my friend out of the clutches
of General Weyler 1 would have taken
some chances to do so. It seemed
wiser for tne to depart nnd leave the
struggle going on in Cuba to I hose directly Interested. Sn I sailed awny
from Havana nnd felt that I could
draw ti free breath as soon as I was
ont of the harbor.
But Hie blowing up of the Maine
gave our people tin interest, In (lie Cuban struggle for Independence that led
to Its attainment, and I was one of
those who went to the island for the
purpose. It was not till It was nil
over nnd I had been mustered out of
the United States service that 1 returned to Culm with a view to learning
what liatl become of Henry Molina.
1 gathered the story gradually. The
first part of It I heard was that Henry
hnd been taken to Morro ensile at Havana and had been condemned to
denth. but hud escaped the day before
he was to hnve been executed. How
he escaped I did not learn, but it was
reported that a boy some seventeen nr
eighteen years old had visited his prison nnd managed to convey to him saws
with which to remove n bar In his window. He Iiuil Joined the revolutionary
forces, but had done more for the
cause in other ways than as a commander. This I could iiuderstand. remembering his education nt un American university.
The next chapter In the story wns
tbat Inez de lu Rami bad been found
on the grounds of her home with a
bullet hele In her left breust and in a
dying condition. She had been assassinated, but could not or would uot tell
wbo had been her assassin. It was
well known, however, that she had
been a spy of General Weyler. and. the
Molina plantation having been confiscated by the Spanish government, she
hud received a law sum of money.
Lastly. 1 heard that my chum hnd regained possession of his estate, his father having died, anil (he son had just
been married to Concia Sierra.
Naturally I put these facts together
nnd tilled out the story in my own way,
but I could uot tell how far 1 was
right or how fur wrong I lost no time

Why Tear. Flow.
AU human emotions, however slight
they may be, cither decrease or increase the circulation. oi the blood.
Those emotions that bring tears causa
| the  blood vessels annuel the eyes to
! expand, thus flooding the lachrymal
or tear glands with blood. Tbe tear
glands always secrete a little to keep
| the eyes cool and moist and carry off
specks of dust through the nasal passages, but tbe extra supply of blood
��� increases this secretion to such an extent that it cannot go oil in the usual
way, so overflows.

Last week ���> gentleman, who
shall be nameless, but who, it maj
be mentioned is a well known lutii
inary in some of ih** best dishwashing circles of tlie pacific coast,
came up to Headquarters to flunky
lie stayed at th-' liott 1 over night
and iii the morning was drafted up
to camp 2.
1 le might bave been seen within
I an hour after breakfast, starting off
boldly with bis bundle mi bis
shoulder, and his face towards tlie
rising sun; albi it with a cast of
countenance of the most nby; mal
solemnity. And right here all
trace i E him has been lost,
Various theories are rampant
among the locnl sleuths to account
for bis mysterious disappearance.
Some incline to the view th it a
carnivore, possibly a solitary survivor from some supposedly long
r'.iin: species of nn'enrlier geologi
t-.il ii 'tin I, has pom ced upon ami
devoured iiitn,   Others argue thai
lie    lias been    kidnapped   by    wild
Indians, tu feature in the premier
role in some cannibalistic rituals,
It is true one or two of the blase
gumshoes flount both this hypo
I1 i as being ultra-romantic and
Mid Victorian, and cynically assert
their own conviction that the
gentleman got chilled in his nether
extremities and beat an undignified
retreat back to the white lights.
One lady, with theosophtcal tendencies, is obsessed with the idea
that the intent, faraway expression un tlie face of the would be
llunky on the fatal morning of his
premature eclipse, was evidential
of some glimpse into the ghastly
gloom of futurity which had been
miracuously vouchsafed. However
this may be, we cm only await
dispatches from Vancouver for
further developments.

A school site has at last been
decided upon. A meeting of the
ratepayers of Comox was held on
March 14, and they decided to purchase eight lots belonging to Mr.

view, good water, and is just the

Miller's pupils was especially pleasing. The ladies provided tlie refreshments, after which the light
fantastic was kept up till late.
At the recent meeting of the
Victoria Presbytery, and on the
motion of Mr. William Duncan, of

worthy of mention must be chronicled a musical evening and dance,
at Hannston's ranch, on Easter

would-be-subscriber would bind
him to pay $5.50 per inont'\ less
$1 if the account was paid by the
iSth of each month. In view of
the fact that the whole district is
filling up with residents the price
seems a heavy one to pay. Perhaps
I the farmers can talk over the
I scheme of having a farmers' telephone and so hold what will became a powerful monoply in check.
The farmers of the valley are, to
use an expression, "finding themselves", even if slowly, to judge by
the meeting, held under the
auspices of the Farmer's Institute
at Grantham school, last Saturday
when Mr. Alexander Ledingham
was the priucipal, and be it said
also, an exponent of the way such
an address should be given. The
room was crowded and no one
went awav who was not highly delighted. The subject chosen was
"The Care and Cultivation of the
soil" and the speaker readily answered all questions put. Refreshments were dispensed by the ladies'
and music was represented by
selections from Mr. Janes' grama-
phone and solos on the trombone
from Mr. A. w. Blight.

the accident might have been fatal.

Sunday,   March 23rd,   was quite
a  red-letter day   for church  goers
in the  Miuto district.    At a   large
young   people's   meeting   in    the
morning Mr. Craig spoke on "The
I.ife   ami wink   of David   Livingstone,"   christian    missionary   and
explorer.    It  is just exactly   one
hundred   years  since   Livingstone
was born.  Mr. John Muudell, J.P.
.mil an elder of Sandwick    Presbyterian congregation,    addressed tlu I
Sunday   School in   the   afternoon, I
taking as his subject "The Message !
of Easter,"  while  in the   evening j
Mr, Craig   preached to   a crowded
and enthusiastic congregation,  on
"Hold fast that which is good.
The people, and especially the
young folks, of Happv Valley, are
indeed sorry to part with their missionary at^this time, for Mr. Craig
has been an inspiration to all. His
plain, straightforward preaching
has been appreciated, and his blackboard diagrams and illustrations
of Old Testament scenes and characters have made the study of the
Bible so interesting aud instructive.
Mr. Craig can teach as well as
preach, and he has the art of
adaptibility, so necessary in the
making of a successful preacher.
Happy Valley folks expect him to
take a high place in church circles
some day. They all wish him
much success.

In the first place let it be granted
as Euclid would say, that the new-'
comer takes a broad   aud unprejudiced view of what he sees. ��
But before he investigates the
commercial possibilities of the district he cannot fail to be most
favourably Impressed by the marvelous beauty of the scenery, and
beauty of scenery is a very real asset to a growing town.
I know personally of a man and
his wife ��who   have   traveled   the
world   over and   who know   intimately tlie mo t lovely parts of the
globe, who on their   arrival at Comox harbor  one bright  and frosty
morning   decided   forthwith   that
they   had   reached   the   promised
land   and   me 1 ro.ini   no further. I
"Within a week they had   bought I
their land  and   are   prosperously i
settled. !
But if Providence has been so
lavish in giving Courtenay beautiful surrondings it is up to her inhabitant!! to make the town at least
as attractive to look at as possible.
It does not give newcomers a
favourable impression to see beside
the main street and in the very
heart of thj town vacant lots
which consist of half-burned logs,
empty oil cans and every conceivable kind of rubbish.
If individual owners have uot sufficient enterprise to clean up their
own lots, then whatever public body-
has rttosi influence in Courtenay
should ae*S to it that the stranger
walking up tihe main street should
be offended by uo such eyesores as
these rubbish heaps wedged in between up-to-date aud piosperous
looking stores.
A high limit is placed upon building "permits in growing cities like
Victoria, in order that residents
who build fine $3000 houses may
uot have their property depreciated
by a row of $500 shacks being put
up next door.
We cannot all build expensiv-
stores or houses on our property,
but it is within our power to see
that the mam street is not lined
with garbage heaps. If this is too
candid it is that the Newcomer is
uot used to things as they have
been for years ; he sees a place as
he finds it, and lie finds that Nature
has made it very beautiful, but up
to now nian does not seem to have
done his share.
Of the further delights and more
solid advantages of this district the
Newcomer hopes to deal in subsequent issues of The Review.
