INTKSE3TING VISITOR
Learning that Miss S. H. Berthram, at
present of Nunaimi), but until recently
from Queensland, and whose reputation
as a musician and ar'ist had preceded
her, was a guest ut the Lindsay house,
the Nhws reporter gave her n call.
Miss Uertbram is an intelligent lady,
much travelled and accomplished in
many lines.
She came un to ascertain what en*
couragenient there was for a teacher in
French, painting, and especially music.
As I'i ot. Spear has already arranged for
a class in music, she will return by next
steamer.
As our people are pretty well posted
about Nanaimo, I looked beyond and
enquired about Queensland.
'��� I left there," said Miss Berthram, in
1895; was there eleven years, located in
Maryborough.
What nbout the climate?
"Oh! its horrid hot; in height of the
summer 129 degrees in the shade-
Wiping my brow mechanically and
partly from sympathy-���" What winter do
you have I"
"Its summer lhe year round " was the
smiling reply.
Again mopping my forehead with my
bandanna mid turning 10 fruit as a cooling
subject, I said, " Fruit���"
Ves, to be sure, but we have experienced drouths there which have been
known to list three years, folmwed by
fearful rains. During the drouth sickness prevails���levers peculiar to such
warm countries, ancl then no fruit.
"About Maryborough where you lived?"
"Thai's a city about the size of Victoria
I should say, made up of a small proportion of English, the rest being blacks.
Miss Berthram was a teacher for a
period of between six and seven years in
tbe grammar school at Maryborough,
giving insiruction in French, painting,
drawing, singing and music. Upon leaving she was presented with a gold watch
as a token of appreciation, which bears
the following inscription:
'���'PRESBNTED TO
MtSS   BERTRAM
���fc by her 4*
PuriLS AT THE GIRLS' GRAMMAR
School.
-r X + X X -,-
Maryborough, Oct. 31st, 1887.
It should not be supposed from the
above that her remarks apply to all
portions of Queensland, as we suppose
in a country of rivers, mountains and sea
coast there must be a variety of climate.
EPWORTH "LEAGUE
Mr-ny of the meetings of Ihc Epworlli
League nre quite interesting. The one
on Friday the :oth was especially so.
" Throw out the Life Line" was lirst
given, and ibis was followed by a neat
address bv thc president, Mr. Charles
Nelson. Then there was a song by Miss
Rachel Daniels and a reciution by T.
Dickinson, and a reading by Mr. Thos.
McKay. A Half Hour of Jokes was the
feature, Rev. Mr. Logan, Mrs. Dee and
Mr. C. Evans were selected as judges.
Fnr thirty minutes the happy bon mots
fl<:w, "xciting much merriment and show-
in:; -i good deal nf versaialily- The prize
for the best joke was awarded 10 Mr.
ilujii Sutherland and the consolation
prize for the -**,u:,l one was given to Mr.
Nel ;on. Alter this followed speeches by
Mr. Chas. Evans, Rev. Mr. Logan and
Rev. Mr. Sutherland. Miss Turnbull
presided at the organ.
LECTURE TONIGHT
Rev. John A. Logan will lecture tonight
(Tuesday) at thc Presbyterian church on
" Stray Shots from an Old Rifle." Mr.
Logan is an easy graceful speaker, but
will not be the only attraction as Miss
"erthr-im, ot Nanaimo, who has a fine
reputation as a soprano, will silig.

THBBB C0WABDS
On Wednesday night three fellows,
who do not deserve to be called men attacked a lone, harmless Chinaman, near
Leiser's big store. One grabbed him by
the cue, while thc other two deniinded
fifty cts.
The Chinaman assured them he had
no money, when they .ill struck bim, surrounding linn so he could not escape.
We leel sure, should one brave manly
man walk up to these three cowards lhey
would slink away like sheep.
No brave man will attack the weak,
but when thr.e fellows who would likely
call themselves civilized, commit such
outrages against law and manliness beat
and try to rob an unotiendmg Chinaman,
no words nre capable of cxpicssir.g the
contemptible action.
These people will doubtless call the
Chinaman a heathen and their persecution ot Christian Missionaries inhuman,
and yet they commit the same offence
with less excuse, for tliey have been born
ml reiietl ni t Cariitian land. These
men are a disgrace to the country.

The necessity for a prop er court house

The room at present used for this purpose, which is thc only one available, ii

The details of the proposal which, it it

certain conditions, to lay before the city,
have been made public.
The scheme is to extend the Esquimalt & Nanaimo railway for a distance
of 100 miles above Wellington, itt

nf Victoria guarantees the bonds of tbe
road to the extent of $3,000,000 at 4 per

Arm will be removed to Ksquiiualt, where
all the coal shipping pertaining to th*

,l.ngfiii. in tbe New York Herald of
Sunday, January BOth, on Guiana's
boundary a century ago, tho writer
gives tt quotation from a manuscript
history ol Guiana, which lit* snys ls

lereneo In tlio quotation "to the map
Bent by tins Spanish Government to
D'Anvlllo, tlio Fronch geographer, on
which tbo linos of Dutch Guiana are
laid dowu in accordance with it description given herein, seems to be
Important, und the map, ii it eould
Ik: found, would bo almost conclusive
evidence."
Tbo quotation from tiio manuscript
which ho gives says nothing about
any map. Tlio words td tlio quotation
are as follows: " With respect to
the Dutcli lino, it appears by certain
authentic documents transmitted by
the Court, of Spain to M. D'Anvillo,
Geographer and Engineer to the
King of France, in which there is a
distinct and full description ol tbe
Dutch territories, wherein the line
extends to the westward uf Lake
Amucou, making a distinct curve for
the Lako of l'ui-initt and then running
tip to tlio Kio Negro, according to
tho dotted lino ou the general map
of Guiana,"
It does not follow from tlio statement that certain authentic documents wore transmitted ity the Court
of Spain to D'Anvlllo that one oi
theso documents was a map ol Dutch
Guiana, with a dotted lino showing
the boundaries of that colony. There
may liavo boen a map, but tills is not
necessarily Inferrible from tlte statement.
CAPTAIN' THOMPSON'S MAP.
I avail myself ol tins occasion tu
give t*omc additional iinpurtunt information upon the matter in dispute. There is a large map, In six
sheets, uf the coast ui Guiana and
the interior, frum thu observations
ul Captain Edward Thompson, made
in tho year 1781 and published in
London lu 17Sii. This map Is called
a "geo-liydi-ogruphie survey ol the
euast ol -Guiana and the intarUir
parts, as far as tliey have been explored by the French aud the
Dutch." This is tho best map of the
Coast ol (iuiuna aud ol tho interior, so lar as then explored, that 1
know of, and atopy oi it is iu lite library oi tbe New York Historical Society. Tho Importance of this map
is that it gives tlie exact extent of
the territory claimed by the Dutch
went of the Essequibo, and nil the
posts, settlements and lorts that 1
have previously mentioned, It shows
the Point Dtii-iina, at the mouth -il
the Orinoco, which, It stuics, is the
"Cape Drciiie" of the Dutch, and
then gives, under the name of tbe
Kiver liarima, which flows into the
sea nt the mouth of the Orinoco,
tliese words: "Western boundary of
tho Dutch, according tu their claim."
The Captain Thompson, Irom whose
observations in 1781 this map was
made, was at that time a naval commander under Lord Rodney, and look
possession uf the mouths of tho three
rivers u'i Dutch Guiana, running into tho sea, the Putimaron, the Essequibo and the Deinerarn, in order tit
cut off any possible assistance by
Hie Dutch tu the American colonies,
then struggling iur Independence, owing tn his belief that the Dutch
traders from these settlements furnished supplies to the Americans.
This does not diminish the value ol
this map, so carelully prepared und
so superior to any that preceded i'.,
Iur tho possession of the mouths of
those rivers was but temporary,
since the English did not tat
lie*
from lit Inz.'.l s
Into the Cut*
mil. "I which it is an affluent on the
smith siii., more thun two degrees ol
longitude, or 160 miles, to the west
of the Essequibo,
In volume I. of tbo English translation, page -J.KI, the Kiver Puiliuai'on
Is described:
" Poumnrnn, a river ol tho Province or fiuayann, in tlio part culled
Dutch G tin yann. It rls'-s In the Ser*
ranla ol Iniataca, runs n. e. ntul enters
the sea, 10? milCB Irom tho mouth
Grande or Do llanos Navlos of the
Orinoco. It Is the boundary of Dutch
Quay ana.''
Tlte original text rends as follows:
" Poumnron, Kio de In l'rovlncia He
la Guuyana en fa pnrto que pnBoen
Ins Holandeses, nneo en la scrranla de
Iniataca. corre al N, 13., y ilosem boca
gr.-tnile o do Navlos del Orinoco; es
le termlno occidental do las poseslones
do tos Holandeses."
The correct rendering Is as follnws:
" Poumaron, a river of tho Province
of Gulnna In The part which tho Dutch
possess. It i-lsos In the range of lm-
������ttiicn, runs to the northeast anil empties Into the sea twont.v-ltve leagues
distant from the groat, or ship, mouth
of tlte Orinoco. It is tho western
limit ol the possessions uf,..tbe Dutch.'*
In my former paper I stated that
the Spaniards never settled in any

A RECENT HISTORY,
of Eritisb Guiana Irom 1688 to 1891,
by J. Rodway, published threo yearn
ago nt - Georgetown, Deiuerara, because it contaius what I regard as
a carelully prepared and reliable account of tlio Dutch settlements west
of the Essequibo, and explains why
the Spaniards never succeeded in effecting any settlements in the disputed territory, whilo tho Dutch did
succeed In milking tbem. He says
that the Caribs wero tho most powerful of all the tribes of tropical America and abhorred the very name nf
the Spaniards. He says that In every
attempt the Spaniards made tn outer Guiana tliey were driven away,
and that for nearly a century the
country was preserved tn the natives intact; that when the Dutch
camo they proclaimed themselves en-
emles nf Spain, mid were permitted
by the Caribs tn mnke small settlements, and, its the trade with the
natives became more extensive, they
were allowed tn establish posts in
the Interior; that the whole country,
Irom the Orinoco to the Essequibo,
while effectually closed to the Span-
lards, was open to tlte Dutch ; that
while a Spaniard tit that period could
not travel In that part nl Guiana,
the Dutchmen, nn tlie other hand,
were free of tlie whole, region.
FRENCH TESTIMONY.
As a further confirmation of there
statements from a disinterested
source, I will call attention tn nn
extract trom the "Travels in Smith

the French Government at Cnrnceas,

M. Depone says, volume 2, page 8551
"It Is, in fact, certain that Spanish
Guiana, which on the map appears
to occupy thirty leagues up cuaslt
from the mouths ol the Oronoko tu

-that is, In 1781. This map ls said
to have been compiled from a Frenoh
original, the namo ol which Is wit
given. It Is of etpial Importance with
that of Captain Thompson, as It
gives by a carelully dotted line the
western boundary ol Dutch Guiana,
as the river Amacurn, a rivor Mowing Irom the Boutb Into tbo sett at
the mouth of the Orinoco. It thus represents the now disputed territory
as belonging to the Dutch, and is In
accordance, therefore, with a map
found in tao atlas ol the French
geographer Sanson (dated 1669*, This
Is called a map of " Amcrltpio Meridionals," and represents Cnrlbana as
divided by a dottetl line Irom the
Spnnish territory ol New Andalusia,
cost ol the Orinoco, nnd entirely separated, thorelore, from Cnrlbana.

to the mouth Qf the Essequibo, was
then Dutch territory, and gives alao

"At one time tlie United States consisted ul English colonies, but abuut

Is lost by tlio leaking of a laucet
from which water escapes in drops
if the washer is uot tight. A chemist, who measured exactly the amount
of waste, found that about 50 drope
fell every minute; within 90 minutes
thero would lio 4,500 drops of water,
which is equivalent to a quart, so
that tliere would lie a loas of four
gallons of water every 24 hours. In
a year almost 1,500 gallons of water
will have been waated uselessly from
such a faucet. It la considered that
leaking faucets are quite frequent,
and tho Immense waste of water becomes more apparent. Every landlord should, therefore, see that all
water faucets about his premises are
shut tight to prevent useless losa of
water.

Uul we anticipate. Let us returu to
tho hotel at Cogolln, whore Hubert
and Diego stayed on their return
home from Marseilles.
Tlio conveyance bad been ordered the
evening belore, and alter a hasty
breakfast tho two brothers-in-law set
out for homo on one of those
splcmihi mornings ol tbo Provencal
autumn, which aro us hut as a summers day In London. Robert talked
little, but lie was entirely absorbed
with the joyful Uloa of seeing thoso
whom ho loved, uud Diego, occupied,
uo doubt, bj some such thought, did
nut speak a word.
It was ahout 10 o'clock wheu tho
reil rool ol tlte bastlde began to appear above thfl top of a clump of pine-
trees which protected It oil the north
side.
Presently Robert fancied lie saw a
large aint excited crowd at the Iront
door. Ile seemed to recognize tlio
blue shirts or Dlsueys workmen, and
alao the glitter of aome arms and
some uniforms. Much surprised at
this sight, for all tbo divers should
have been at work at this hour, lie
questioned Dlego, who said tliat bo
could sio nu thing.
He whipped up the liorse, und in less
than hall tin hour they woro at the
bottom ol tne bill. From lioro the
travellers coula no longer seo the
erow-d; but tliey bad been perceived,
for John Slongli, the foreman, was
running to meet them. He wus hardly within earshot when Robert called
out to bim:
"What's the matter, John? In heaven's uame, what has happened V"
But tho sailor was too much out of
breath to reply, and when lie bad
arrived at the horse's bend ii. was
with difficulty that lie managed to
say in a broken voice:
"Get out, Mr. Robert, get out. You
will learn the bad news only too
soon."
"An accident 1" cried Robert.
He confessed nfterwards that bis
first fear was for bis dear Ellen. He
had ber namo ou his lips, and he did
not dare tu pronounce It; but his
doubt did not last long.
"Our master, our gooil master Is
dead," replied Slough.
"Who?  My father?"
Robert Sprang from tlio trap and
rushed like a mad man towards tbo
house. He went so quickly that poor
John could not keep up with him, and
ho did not oven think of Dlego, who
paralyzed,  no doubt, by tbo    shock,
n   monster capable o,    assassinating
Ills   benefactor."
"1 can hardly think su either; but
cupidity is an evil counsellor. It was
known that Mr. Disney bad
large sums In bis posaeaslon,
nnd the gold taken Irom
the SutleJ must have formed a trca-
suro rich enough to attempt a man
who lias only hla wages."
" It Is Impossible, air," Interrupted
Robert eagerly. " All our workmen
knew that tho cases whleh contained the ingots bad beon taken to
Marseilles. My lather only kept by
him enough for our dally cxpenaes
and tho men's wages."
" Hut even this must have been n
largo sum. How much do you think
Mr. Dlaney had by liim V"
" I can't say exactly ; but I nm
certain that it could nut have been
more than ten or twclvo thousand
Irancs."
" Whero did ho usually keop his
money I"
" In n desk, the key of which he
alwaya carried on him, and where be
also kept bis papers. It Is the one
lu liis bedroom, by his bedside."
"This desk was lound open." continued the magistrate slowly. " Tho
key bad been placed by your father
oa tho table, aad the assassin uaed
it, for It still bears the marks of hla
bloody flngora. The papers bare beon
disturbed. They were found in disorder, aa 11 tbey had boon hurriedly
read; but they were loft In the drawers. The money alone liaa disappeared, and your estimate waa a correct one, for, aeeordiug to a note in
your father'a handwriting, the desk
should have contained eleven rouleaux of gold of one thousand francs
each. It was, therefore, to steal this
sum that the crime was committed."
" I cannot believe it, air j or, at
least, I cannot admit a single one ol
our men can have allowed himself to
bo tempted by this gold. Each one of
tliein was promised by my father a
share In his profits, antl this share
would have exceeded the sum which
has disappeared."
" We found, In truth," continued the
magistrate, " a calculation made by
Mr. Disney, from which It would appear that his workmen had an Interest ln the salvage; but was this
lact known to them ?"
"Perfectly, sir. My father always
acted thus. Our workmen were all
partners, and the modest Independence which they enjoy proceeds entirely Irom our lormer undertaklnga."
" Do you know," continued the
Magistrate, after a moment's sil-
enco, " what papers the desk coa-
ttilncd ?"

speak to the son ol tlio victim, and
Itobert lollowed tho old snllor, who
was weeping no less bitterly himsell.
The magistrate wus waiting Ior
Robert lu tlio drawing-room. Ho waa
an excellent man, who olten camo to
see tbem, nnd whom tbey all loved
much. Ho Clasped Robert's hand ul-
foctiouately; but his face cxpresaod
sincere grief, and ut tbo same tlmo
n sort of uneasiness which tho youug
man coultl not at first understand.
"Sir," said he, "I have a painful
duty to perform here. I loved and re-
apectcd your loater-lather, and I sym-
pnthlze deeply with you In your misfortune; but I nm a mngiatrate and
am obliged to seek the authors ol an
atrocious crime. Forgive me, then,
tor disturbing you ln your grief in order to put aomo Indispensable questions to you. Had Mr. Disney any
enemies ?"
"None, sir, tliat I know of. How
could he have had any in a country
where he was a stranger, and where
be bad done nothing but good?"
"I know tbat Mr. Dlaney waa much
beloved. But amoogat all theao English workmen who came here with
you to work at the wreck was there
none whom you could suspect of having a grudge against your foster-
father ?"
"No. sir," replied Robertt without
hesitation. "All our men are old ser-
vants who Ior many years bave
shared my father's dangers. He treated them as his children, and It Is
impossible for me to believe that
amongst these good fellows thore was
suranco compaay In London-
" There was also a will. Did you
know that ?"
"A wllli No, sir; my lather never
spoke to mo ol it."
" This will has not been found;
but It has existed, for ln a bundle of
papers, which no doubt escaped the
aasassln's eyes, I liavo discovered a
letter from your father which refers
to It. Ia it not poaslblo that tlila will
was disposltcd with a notary or a
lawyer ?'���
" I know absolutely nothing about
that," replied Robert, rather uston-
Islied at tho magistrate so dwelling
on this point. "I never bad any con-
versntlon with my father upon Ills
private affaire, unlcsa It waa with reference to tho money paid Into the
bank nt Marseilles."
" I believe you," said tne magistrate ; " but tlio recovery of this
will Is most Important. Did your
brother-in-law know more about Mr.
Disney's affairs than you?"
" I do not think so. Dlogo has alwaya been In the dark as to money
mattera, like myself; more than myself, perhaps, for lately he has ceased to tako any Interest In the salvage operatloai."
Worn out with fatigue and grief
after tlila long ordeal, ho went to Join
Ellen, whom he found nt prayer. She
wns no longer weeping, and her aux*
ions face bore traces ol an Inward
struggle. She came to meet hor
husband and clasped Ida hand, Baying:
" I must live, Roliert, live fnr my
aiater; for Mary lias now only ua In
the world."
Her voico was calm, but her eyes
shone with extraordinary fire, and
Robert rend on her face a firm reao-
lutlon which atruck hlin with naton*
labmcnt. For hla own part, far from
lielug In a condition to act, or even
to think, ho soon yielded to that
dejection which always follows great
grief. A violent fever succeeded this
period of depression, nnil, thanks to
this crisis, he escaped tlio mournful
ordenl which the other Inhabitants
of the baatltlo bad to undergo.
Tlio law was taking Its course with
nil Its slow nnd minute (onus. John
Slough, who shared with Ellen the
tnsk of nursing Roliert, told hlin the
details of the crlino and the steps
which followed the enquiry. Tt waa
a gloomy mystery.
He had lieen tbe first to see his
murdered master. Every one in the
house wns asleep when, at about six
o'clock ln tho morning, ha bad gone
to call Dlaney. The key was iu tbo
door as usual.
After having knocked without receiving any answer, John Slough had
entered, nnd bad started back with
horror. Tho old sailor bad, however,
retained sufficient presence of mind
to spare Ellen and Mary tlila sight.
He had firat of all called the two
raaldB, and had sent them to inform
his compaalons and then to fetch the
magistrate and the police. He had
afterwards had the courage to tell
tho fearful news to bis master's
daughters.
When Robert nnd Dlego arrived the
police had already had time to take
some preliminary stops. Thomas Disney had been killed during his Bleep
by one blow from a dagger, which
had reached Ids heart.   The assassin
must bare noiselessly oponed the
door, gontly approached the bed,
struck with unerring hand, opened
the desk with the key placed on tbe
table, and fled wfth the gold.
Tho murder and thelt must have
been committed In the apace of a
very few minutes. It was to lie concluded from this rapidity and cer
talnty of cxecutton tliat tbe assassin
knew the room and bis victim's habits. As a matter of fact. It did not
appear that ho had made use of a
light, Thus be must have lieen
obliged, by the duubtful light uf the
moon, which was then In its last
quarter, to select frum a bunch of
keys that of the desk, then to open
It and search the drawers.
Dlsnoy must have died without uttering a cry, lor one nf the maids,
who had lain awake lur the greater
part of the night, declared that she
had heard nothing.
The murderous wea putt had nut
iH-en lound, but tn judge from the
sbnpo of the wound the assassin
must have used a knife with a very
sharp and narrow blade. Slough,
who was not at all fond of the
French, did not cease tn Insist thnt
tho murderer wns a native; und that
he must have known tin- country perfectly to have approached the house
In the middle of the night, and to
have disappeared so suddenly,
lie wns surprised that anyone
should have dared to suspect Ids
comrades, uf whom he was ns certain
as ho was of himself. All the workmen bad had to submit to a minute
examination of tlielr property and
persona, And the ways ol tho French
police exaaperated the good Bailor.
His Indignation knew no bounds
when he lound that an enquiry had
been set on foot with the evident object of making certain that tho
story of tho Journey to Marseilles was
correct. Diego had undergone a long
examination, as well ns the landlord
nnd servants of the inn nt Cogolln.
Robert could not conceal from himself that the thought ol Imputing the
crime to himself and hla brother-in-
law bad occurred to the magistrate;
but he learnt at the snme tlmo that
all the witnesses had agreed In declaring that Dlego nntl he bad gone
to bed after midnight, and that the
next day nt itoven o'clock they were
still tliere. From the village of
Cogolln to the bastlde waB more
than twenty miles, antl common sense
showed tbe Impossibility of going and
returning on foot In six hours.
Now, In the whole diatrlct there
was only one available conveyance,
tho oae which hnd brought them
back the next morning. For one of
the travellers to be guilty, it would
have been necessary for him to have
flown.
Roberts with difficulty found an
explanation for those suspicions, but
by dint of reflection be aaw that, in
reality, if the crime bad any other
object thnn that of murdor, Dlego
and he were the ouly persons Interested In poor Tom's death.
Was It, then, Diego whom be accused ?
This thought shocked Robert, for
although his brother-in-law's conduct
had often appeared to him strauge,
be bad never surmised, either In ills
acts or In his worda, anything which
Justified such a terrible suspicion.
Resides, ho learned Irom Slough that
Diego's grief was so acute that after
hailng been examined ho had shut
himaolf up In hla room and had re-
luBod even to he conaoled by his wile.
On the third dny the law had con-'
eluded Ita task, anil DiBney'a children were nlio wed to bury tlielr lather. In spite of the state of bis
health, Roliert was determined to be
present at the funeral. And, In truth,
It was imperative tliat he should,
for Diego in Ills turn hnd fallen ill,
and Roliert waa the unly one, ol all
the children that he had loved, to follow tho remains uf Thomas Dianey to
the grave. It was a touching ceremony.
To tell the truth, the case waa no
longer in his liuniK Numeroua witnesses had been examined, but not
one of them had ben able tu givo any
useful Information, No one had seen
or heard anything on that fatal
night; not one, with the single exception of an ohl shepherd, wlio waa
tending his goats five or six milea
frum the bastlde, at a place where
the path which runs into the high
road to Marseilles passes between
two steep rocky bunks. This man
said that ho had been aroused, ua he
lay asleep on a wooded height, by a
eouud which resembled tho rolllug of
wheela, but which had appeared to
hlui lighter���"thinner," na lio snid.
Upon this he bad looked down on the
road, nnd bad ecoa an object which
puzzled him vastly, it was, he said,
half wheel and half*man, and it travelled as quickly us a wlll'-o'-tho-wlsp.
This strange apparition had so
frelghtcned him that he shut Ida eyes,
convinced that the devil alone could
travel about tho country in the middle ol the night on such a machine
Au hour afterwurds tho sound bad
ro-comitionced, atnl tlio samo fantastic object bad passed beneath him,
but iu tho opposite direction. The
first time the man���If It was a man
���waa going towards the aea; tbo
second time Ilo was returning from
thence. Although odd, hla evidence
had seemed tu merit attention, and
the Bhephcrd had been examined several timea, but nothing more definite
bad been extracted from bim. As a
matter ol fact, the maa was supposed
to be rather wrung in bis head. He
gave himaolf out to be a sorcerer, and
wns always ready to toll ghost stories. His veracity was questioned, and
ns no one camo lorward to conllrm
hla singular evidence, ho was Itnnlly
sent about Ida businesa, after having
been severely rated fur hla absurd
vision.
On the first conversation which
Robert had on this subject with Diego ho saw that bia brotber-In-law
wi.died to leave the haatide aa soon
as possible. For his own part, ho waa
quite ol a dlllererit way of thinking.
A Bad charm attached him to thia
house where he had borne such cruel
sufferings. It seemed to him utmost
wicked to abandon that nook of
ground where poor old Tom would
soon rest all alone, far from nil those
whom he had loved.
Ellen shared hla feelings, nnd It was
agreed that they should remain at
tho bastlde until the conclusion ol
the work, whilst Dlego went to Eng
land to settle tho affairs of the family. Mary, wbo had no will but that
of Iter Imabaad, consented to remain
with hor slater.
Sometimes, when bis presence at
the works was not Indispensable, Robert went with Ellon and Mary to pray
at their father's grave. The illa-
t.'tnce was rather long, Imt the walk
w*:is a splendid one on the lovely winter days, when tho sun gilded the
Jagged cliffs of tho coast and made
them stand out in bold relief agninBt
the sombre background of pitio forest. Often, fnn, Robert went alone
for long walks ln the forest, and he
was never weary of admiring the
vigor oi nature in this southern land,
so dilferent from tbo cloudy akia-: under  which   ho had  ben  born.
One day, when ho had been overtaken by darkness on ono of these
excursions, ho left lho road In ordor
to gnln the bastlde bv cutting across
a common covered with clumps and
pine-trees, which are found all along
the co.tftt of Provence. Night wiih
coming on, nntl Robert wns hastening
his steps, when lie atruck hts font so
violently against a Inrgo stono that
he fell. On getting up, he saw Hint
the shock had displaced tho stone,
and he espied an object which was
shining in the rays of the setting sun.
lie bent down, ami nnw that It was
a tin bov. Much surprised nt this
find, he lifted th? box, which appeare I
to Mm very heavy, and opened It. ft
contained roleaux ol gold wrapped In
a greyish envelope, anl n paper, which
Robert hastened to unfold. A mist
passed before his eyes. no recognized Disney's handwriting. It was
his will.
It only contained n few lines. Thos.
Disney loft the whole of bis fortune
to his daughter Ellen, on condition
that she made Ida other daughter,
Mary, an allowance equal to tho half
of the Income derived from the whole
of his property.
ThiB document bore a recont date.
It was signed nnd perfectly regular,
for the English law allows parents
much greater freedom In tlte disposal of their fortunes than thnt of
France. The motives which had
prompted It were clear. Disney, uneasy at Mary's weakness, bad wished to protect her against Dlego a influence, and be had placed Mb 'ortune
uuiler the care of Ellen, whna * tlrm-
iicns ho know.
Hut who had hidden this accusing
document? a terrible idea flasied
across Robert's mind, and he was
afraid that he hnd guessed tbe truth.
One man only In the world was Interested In tho disappearance of Disney's will, nnd that mnn was���Dlogo.
Ho alone could have thrown away
this gold, which lie had doubtless
only carried olf fn order to avert suspicion. All these thoughts traversed
Robert's brain liko a flash of lightning, but he drove them away at
once.
" What!" said he, "what are foolish suspicions against the evidence?
Did Diego, whom I am nccus'ng, loavo
mo during thnt fatal night? By
what extraordinary power could be
have committed the most cowardly of
crimes nt the bastlde and have returned before daybreak to the room
which adjoined mine? May not the
murderer hnve carried otf tho will
solely becnuse it was in the same box
as the gold? Who knows whether
he did not bury his treasure ihore
In order to como and recover It later?
And, besides, II It was Diego, would
he not liavo burnt the will 1"
This last proof seemed to Robert a
decisive one, and ho felt that a
weight had been removed from off his
chest when be was ab!o to say to
himself that his brother-in-law wus
Innocent,
By this tlmo It was quite tla(rki
Robert still held In his hands the
terrible box, and he had not yet
thought of the use which he was going
to make of It. The first Idea that
occurred tn hlin was tn hand it over
to the police; but he thought of the
suspicions aroused again, nnd the
searches resumed with Iresh ardor.
Was he certain of the direction which
tho pursuit would tnke, and must ho
run tlte terrible risk of seeing Diego
accused ? Robert resolved to keep
silence.
The gold which the murderer's
bloody hands had touched filled bim
with horror. Hla lirst impulse was
to throw It far from him on the common, but lie changed Ids mind, and
placed tho box under the stc.no, which
he carelully replaced. He thought to
himself that the murderer, whoever
he wns, would return to visit his hidden treasure, and that ho could be
watched. He bad kept the will, bo
be bad no reason to fear that the
murderer would como to remove nnd
destroy It; but he did not intend to
make any use of It, for fear of awakening tlte suspicions of the police. Ho
thought that the best thing to do wns
to wait, ln order to act according to
circumstances, and even to retrain
from telling Ellen of the dlscovcryi
Robert returned to the bastlde, endeavoring to conceal bis perturbed
state of mind.
A letter from Dlego had Just arrived.
It was dated from Parts. It stated
that ho had concluded Ida business
England, and that he would already
havo boen In Provence If It had not
boon for his uncle's unexpected re
turn. This uncle, the ono who bad
taken charge ol him during hia childhood, hud decided tu come to Europe
to enjuy a lortune made In recouti
commercial operations. He waa going
to realde ln Paria, and ho waa very
anlxoua that his nephew should live in
the snme couutry na himself. Dlego
concluded by saying tha* ho was disposed to conform to this desire, and
that he wus occupied la preparing
In Paris an establishment in keeping
with the new position of the family.
He expressed, ut tho same time, a
most lively wLsh never to separate
lilinaell  from hla brutlior-ln-luw.
Diego's proposal overturned Robert
and Ellen's dearest projects. They
had dreamt of living happily and
peaceably In tne cottngo nt Whltstable, where they had loved ono another. To give up this life In order
to follow Dlego Into the whirl of lite
In a large capital, was for them the
hardest ol sacrifices. Rut poor Mary
was accustomed for another to think
and act for her. To leave her was to
deliver her over entirely to the domination of ber husband. Ellen did not
hesitate.
"We promised our father," the sold
to her husband.   And tho Kaine even
ing their resolution was taken. The
salvage operations were ltnlslied.
Robert took measures lor tbe welfare
of the workmen, and sent them back
to England. It was not without emotion that he separated Irom these
good fellows. For their part, tliey
lett their master with regret, aud the
foreman, John Slough, could uot make
up his mind to go. Ho bad uo lamily,
aud ho usked leave to finish liis duys
with Robert, who waa glad to keep
bim.
Dlego soon followed his letter. He
arrived at the bastlde one evening!
as Ellen was reading prayers. They
had not expected him 60 soon, aud
Rubcrt experienced a curious sensation uu seeing him. His appearance
evoked certiiin recollections, and Ellon
shored tlie some Indefinable feeling as
her husband, Mary uione shuwed unly
joy, site received Dlego with the naive
delight of tl cnlld, and 1) ego ahowed
himself tender and attentive towards
her. He was radian tt Bis elegant
dress, his easy monitors, uud his careless conversation astonished tho oc-
cupanta ut the bastlde. Ills face
beamed with the sattafactloa of o
man who (cols himself muster of lilo,
ami who sees the wnrld opening before him liko a subjugated couutry.
Robert sought iu vain upon his features somo tracts of the emotion which
ho might well have felt. Tho past
Wile already forgotten.
Diego related his voyages and hiB
plans. He had tnkea a house iu Paris
largo enough tu lodge the two couples,
ills uncle and taken charge of the
furnishing of it, and all waa to he
ready In a lew daya' time. Whilst be
was describing the splendors of this
now U,e, Robert exchanged a mournful glance with Ellen. Rut they hnd
no serioua objection to his plans, since
they had dotoinnlucd not to leavo
Mary. Their departure was Ilxed for
the day after the next. They wished
to devote tlieir laat day to visiting
their father's grave, and Robert set
out for the village with Ellon and
Mary. Dlego, fatigued with the long
voyage which ho bad Just made, re-
iniiincd at home. Rubcrt went ut the
eame time to old adieu to the good
magistrate, wlio received him most
cordially, and told him that the mystery of Dlanoy'a death had nnt been
cleared up, and most probably never
would be.

HEALTH OF THE TOWN
It ts all very well to make people clean
up their yard*,, etc., in lhe spring, but for
perfect safety it is necessary thai they be
kept clean nnd that all slop ind ashes be
removed at least twice a week ; better
every other day. This can only be
accomplished by enncen ol action and a
sen-able well delined system. How
would it work for the company to add a
few cenn a month to the rent of each
tenement and use this sum as a sanitary
fund lo pay a man lo attend with horse
and can upon every house at certain
stated periods and remove slops and filth.
In Cumberland, the Health Officer could
make the estimates and procure the
signatures of house occupants to pay a
certain specified sum monthly for a similar service. If the suggestion as to adding a Small stun to the monthly rental in
the camp be not acceptable, let the
Cumberland plan be applied to that.
Those who will not subscribe to such a
fund should be prosecuted if slops and
filth be not promptly carried away from
tbeir premises.
It is obvious that by the adoption of
some such system ns here outlined the
expense to each would be small, and the
work more satisfactory, and regularly
dene than it would be il left to each
individual to attend to. The health
authorities are the ones who should
properly move in the matter and as they
appear so far to be thoroughly alive to
the importance of preventing that class
e diseases having their origion in un*
sinitary conditions, we may expect from
them some action along the lines pointed
out.
There is a good deal yet to be done in
tbe line ol spring cleaning and the regulations should be enforced without delay
on Dunsmuir avenue as well at elsewhere. The south side is still unsightly.
Let the work be done thoroughly and let
there be nn delay,
NATIONAL SAKETT
The vast armies and navies kepi up by
the various European nations and the
rapid growth of the American and Japanese navies constitutes a strain upon the
resources of the civilized portion of the
world that soon must result in a gigantic
war in which national lines will be greatly changed, and in some cases obliterated
involving immense misery and incalculable lost of life and properly. Owing to
want of confidence a general disarms
ment by treaty seems impossible. There
is only one escape and that is for the
English speaking people to enter into a
treaty providing for arbitration of any
differences which may arise between us
two great branches, and also in defensive union. The strength of such a combination would enable ihem to command
the peace of ihe world, thereby relieving
it from the terrible cost ef mainlining
such tremendeus armaments. It would do
vastly more than this fer it would be a
power both moral and physical before
which oppression and injustice in every
quarter of the globe would shrink away
and liberty and equality become the universal rule. The human race would become more and mere like one family,
living in peace a life of progress.

Th? meteorological records of the
world chronicles several incontestable in-
stances of black rainfalls, to say nothing
of the more startling phenomena of
-���showers of blood, bine snows," (fee.
Prof. Barker, in April, 1845, lnid before
the Roys I Society of Dublin some obsei
vntiotis on u shower of block rain which
fell around Carlow and Kilkenny, ex*
tending over un area of about 400 square
miles.
Daring the course of his lecture Prof
IT.irkci exhibited to the society a speei
men of tlii�� uncanny 6hower which had
beeu sent him by a friend. The epeei
ineb shown in tne vial was a uniform
black color, much resembling common
black writing fluid. Dr. Barker found,
however, tbat after allowing it to stand
for a short period the black colorinit
matter separated from the water with
which it hod mixed, rendering the color
of the rain water lntioh lighter, but ntil1
dark enough te be called " black rain.'
The ehower which was in broad day
light, wae preceded by a darkness so
dense ub to mnko it impossible for one to
read without the aid of a candle. After
this darkness had continued for soim
time, a hitii storm set in, attended with
vivid lightning, but without the least
semblance of thunder. When this hail
storm was over the black rain began t,
fall.

The passing away of eminent poefc.
land men uf letters, like Tennyson in
England, and Curtis and Whittiur at
home, may be said tu mark a new epoch
In literature. A generation of men devoted to intellectual pursuits, who were,
In the ordinary uso or language, honest
clean, and thrifty amenable to all ordinary laws of ethics in their publio conduct and their private life, and, withal,
prosperous as men of affairs���such men
are absolutely new. A brighter day
opens in the republio of letters when it
ia olear that the world ia willing to give
a competence to men devoted to Intel*
lectual pursuits. It ia a bright omen,
also, for the future when genius works
'a ths harness of ethics ss easily and na*
���"orally aa any honest citizen. At lost,
by the test of inspiration, it is made
clear that the poet of the highest order
is subject to all the common laws of
morality, can attain to his beat while
living a cleanly life, and cau be placed
beyond the reach of want while attending strictly to the divine affairs which
engage his aind.���Christian Register

tlie streets wero damp, so that wisdom would have dictated that I, leg
weary as 1 was, should have kept
In doors, but eo anxious was I to see
the old city tbat I spent tho wholo
evening ln the streets.
" Five o'clock tho next morning
brought a very unwelcome discovery.
I was In me In both ankles and knees.
The head wind ami the damp streets
had proved an unfortunate combination. I gave, however, littio thought
to It, supposing it would wear otf In
a few hours, nnd the first flush oi
sunlight saw me speeding out the
splendid road that leads toward Nap-
ance.
"Night overtook me at a little village near Port Ilopn, but found me
still lame. I rested the next day,
and tho next, but It was too lato;
the mischief was done. I rode a
good many miles during the rest of
the season, but nover a day and
seldom a mile without pain.
" Tho winter camo and I put away
my wheel, saying 'now I shall get
well,' but to my disappointment I
grew worse. Some days my knees almost forbade walking nnd my ankles
would not permit mo to wear shoes.
At timos I suffered severo pnln, so
severo us to make study a practical
Impossibility, yet It must be understood that I concealed the condition of affairs as fnr as possible.
" From being local the trouble liegan to spread slightly and my
anxiety increased. I consulted two
physicians nnd followed their excellent advice, but without result. So
the winter passed. Ono day in March
I happened to tako In my hand a
newspaper In which a good deal of
space was taken by an article in
relation to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
I did not at that timo know what
they wero supposed to euro. I should
have paid no attention to tbo article
had 1 not caught tho namo of a
lady whom I knew. Reading, I
found that she, had been greatly
benefited by the uso of Pink Pills, and
knowing her as I did I hnd nodoubt
of the truth of tho statement that
she had nuthotlzed.
" The first box was not gone before
I -saw a change, und tlio third hud
not heen finished beforo nil signs of
my rheumatic troubles were gone to
stay.
" I say ' gone to stay,' for though
there had lieen every opportunity
for a return of tlio trouble, I have
uot felt tlie first twinge of It. I
nave wheeled thousands of miles and
never before with so Ilttlo discomfort. I have had some of tho most
severe tests of strength and endurance, and have come through them
without an ache. For example, one
afternoon I rode seventy miles,
preached that night and mado fifty
miles of the hardest kind of road before noon tho next (Jay. Another Instance was a ' Century run,' the last
ndles of wliich were mado In a
ownpour of rain through mud and
slush.
" You Bhould think   I would recommend them to others ? Well, I   havo,
nnd havo hnd  tho pleasure of seeing
very good results In a number of Instances.  Yes,   I   should feel    that   I
was neglecting a duty If I   failed to
suggest    Pink    Pills to   any    friend
whom  I   knew to be suffering  from
i rheumatism.
I    " No, tliat   Is not tho only disoaso
I they cure. I    personally know of a
number of euros from other troubles,
but I     liave needed    thom only  for
I that, though It would be but fair to
add tliat my general health has l��;en
bettor this summer than ever before In my lite."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain all

HER PHILOSOPHY.
Mauy wrinkles arc tlie result of
worry ing over  one's   complexuon.
It is "better to have two imposing
and elegant frocks than four mediocre
ones.
Never become worried over your affairs of the heart 60 long1 as you
can sleep well.
It Is sometimes more dignified to be
angry than to be calm. Calmness may
be interpreted as lack of spirit, nnd
an invitation to others to browbeat
one.

Having himself beeu benefited by
the uso of Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal
Powder, Kev. Father Hlnohey, of St.
Joseph's Church, Hamilton, Ont., followed tlio counsel of the good oook,
and carried tho gooil news to others.
Ono of liis parishioners, Miss Maggie

and recommended it to Miss Melody
for her case, wlio, over her owu fiig-

Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal Powder for influenza and found it a grand remedy.
In fact, it gavo mo relief almost nt

of Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal Powder, diffuses this Powder over the surface ol

Why KUhIiik i* Pleaiawt.
Tlie reason kissing is so pleasant,
says aa oscillatory expert of scientific tendencies, is because tlio
jawbones and lips aro full of nerves,
and whon tlio lips ffi persons meet
an electric current is generated, and,
to put it facetiously, you dou't have
to have a dynamo machine, nor a
battery In the house, nor a call-box,
nor n button to touch to ring up the
central ol'fico, and tlioro Is no patent on it, and tlie poorest person In
the world can enjoy tho electric current better than tlie millionaire, and
It never gets out of order.
If Edison hnd invented kissing it
would cost $100 a year, like the telephone, and tiien extra kissing would
lie charged up extra, and if you didn't
pay for it they would take out your
klssaphone and disconnect you from
tiio central office.

J. II. Garrett, a prominent politician, of Liverpool, N. S., makes, for

A rainmaker in India has an apparatus consisting of a rocket, capable
of rising to the height of a mile, containing a reservoir of ether. In Its
descent it opens a pnrachute, which
causes It to come down slowly. Tlio
ether Is thrown out in fine spray, and
its absorption of heat Is said to
lower the temperature about It sufficiently to condense tho vapor and
produce a limited shower.

At first thought it would seem as
though women must submit to the
small, tight-fitting sleeve. It Is a conspicuous part of all the Paris gowns.
But there arc many Incidental ways
in which ita unbecoming effect can be
disguised. The large c<,liars which
frill out over the shoulders are wonderfully useful In this direction. They
are larger than ever Just now, ami
give tho broad effect at the shoulders
of which women arc eo fond. When
these collars are worn tlie close-fitting sleeve at the shoulder Is invisible.
Deep graaa linen and linen batiste collars are to be much the vogue this
spring. They are edged witli a frill
of grass linen embroidery and will Ih;
worn extensively with cloth as well
as silk gowns. White mull collars will also be popular, trimmed
with lace or frills of inull embroidery. In making a tight-fitting
sleeve for a silk frock a jabot of lace
starting from tlte shoulder and running to the wrist will greatly improve the effect. A cluster of lace
frills at tlie elbow Is also an Improvement. Tn the new tight-fitting cloth
sleeves buttons will be much used.
They will wander down the sleeve in
a single row or be arranged oh both
sides of a widely strapped seam.
All the fashionable women wiil he

llIANUt-S IN FASHION.
lhe New Spring Styles Will bo Vreaky, lint
Hny Not Stay.
It rumors from abroad are correct,
the fashionable woman of the spring
of '90 will be wonderful to behold.
For the past fivo years fashion bas
beeu subjected to but few radical
Changes. This spring a revolution is
to flake place.
Here is a list of the new fashions
whicli have already appeared In
Paris:
The hoop-skirt.
Largo bustles.
Small,   tight-fitting  sleeves.
Hip pads la various sizes.
High heels.
Collars of enormous size.
Hats worn well over tho forehead.
Mario Antoinette curls dangling
from the back of the coiffure.
Such is the array of horrors which
the fashionable woman must contemplate before planning her spring
ward robe.
If slio is a sensible woman she will
tako a decisive stand iu the matter
at tho beginning and adopt only tho
least objectionable of the now fashions. The hoop-skirt is sure to cause
her more sorrow than tiio lato balloon sleeve, it will im equally unmanageable and mow than twice as expensive. Skirts with six gores will
be out of tho question. Double the
number will be required, which means
that tho modiste's bill will be larger
than ever.

Hustles Agfttu.
As for thc bustle, thero is no doubt
that women who aspire to be fashionable will lmve to submit to it. The
new spring Jackets require it in order
to show their ripples to the best advantage, and the volumiuous skirts
also mako It a necessity. But the
small bustle in must cases will produce tho desired effect. Large, long
bustles, however, nre promptly displayed ln the fashionable shops.
Women should bear In mind when deciding the bustle question that the
large bustle is a sure forerunner of
that most undesirable companion, the
backache.
Hip pads will be regarded as a blessing by tlio slender women. But fashion
demands that they bo worn by fat and
thin alike. Thore is no doubt that tho
Louis XVI. coat in most cases requires tho graceful swell of the hip
pad, but that does not make it an
addition to the taffeta house gown.

PHETTY KKKT.
'I hey are Worth Giving Attention to ss a
Pretty Feature,
Kvery woman should desire to make
her foot look as well as possible; our
grandmother would have said, as
small as possible, but the day for
that Is past. At the present timo
tho woman with tho long, narrow
foot thinks herself much lietter off
than tiie woman with the short and
pudgy onc, and she is certainly right
from an artistic standpoint.
If your foot is long and narrow and
boasts an instep, affect button boots
and slippers without straps. If, on the
contrary, your foot Is short and
plump, wear laced tioots in tho street
and avoid slippers In light colors. By
the way, black satin slippers are the
sweetest things this year for house
wear. A tiny cut steel buckle may he
added. A novelty for this winter is a
whito satin slipper with red heels, a
very French combination. The heels
nro very high in all tiie slippers. Itis
still very stylish to have your slippers
match your evening gown.
Oarriage hoots are us fascinating as
tho dainty shoe they are meant to
shield. They are pointed and heeled,
mado of tan leather or the palest
shades In satin, and edged with beaver
or ermine.
It may not bo inappropriate to say
a few words as to tlie care of ail this
attractive footwear, If yon bave been
out on a wet day antl your walking
shoes are damp and muddy let them
dry, and, having brushed off the mud,
rub them well with machine oil until
all stiffness has vanished, and then
blacken.
For patent leather some vaseline
rubbed on renews its pristine brightness. You can keep your light kid
slippers etean with pipe clay and a
special blacking comes for suede
Bhoes. The result is that any woman
will be complimented on her pretty
feet because she is exquisitely shod,
and that, with a little Judgment and
cure, no one ueed have noticeably ugly
feet.

A curious c,*i.**e has been on trial
in New York the post week in ivliicli
a woman seeks to pun restraint upon
;i. man who professes to 1)2 in love
with her, tint! iias importuned her
wi th liis attentions until slio litis be-
come seriously iu fear that he may
'attempt hor life ami then end his
own, as has been tlie case in instances
with which most readers ol tho Intelligence ol tlie day are familiar. Ur.
Mien McLono Hamilton lias been put
upon the stand to testily as regards
the effect of Insanity so directed. Dr.
Hamilton is one of tlie most eminent
uf authorities. Here are amusing In-
stauces of tlio questions put to him
and his answers:
Q.���Ii" a man loves a woman all his
life, even though she is married to
another man, and loves her until he
dies, does lie die an insane man? A.
���Tliat is a question of ethics. 1 am
not here to testify as to ethics.
Q.���You do not say that all men
who lovo married women ave Insane?
A.���No.
Q.���Whu I   arc   the   symptoms    ol
love, doctor'.' A.���There are no s-ymp-
toms of love. Love has no symptoms,
Q.���Why not.?  A.���Symptoms    arc
evidence of disease.
Q.���Are not the symptoms of love
and of insanity alike. A.���Love has
no symptoms.
Q.���Hnvo yoa read "Borneo and .label"���seen It played?  A���Yes.
Q.���You know thnt Itomeo was n
murderer and suicide, do you not?
A.-Yes.
(J.���Do yuu consider tliat Romeo
was Insane? A.���I never examined
liomeo.
Mr. NIcoll objected to tliis tiac of
examination, but Justice Bookstaver
allowed it to continue for a short
time.
Q���Did ynu ever hear that Abraham Lincoln wept over the death of
a woman he loved because it was
snowing on tlie dav she was burled,
and he 6a id be wept because be
thought she would BUlfer? A.���Nover
heard that.
Q.���Would yon consider sucli a man
Insane? A.���I didn't examine hini and
can't express an opinion.
Q.���You tcsti.lod that Gulteau wns

very unsatl8f>iotory.
(J���Have you ever watched and
studied a perse,n In love for fourteen
years?   A.���Thank  God, no.
Dr. Allen Fitch, another physician,
testified that love developed In this
way might at any time become dangerous. In his cross-examination one
of the above questions was repeated :
Q.���Is tho fact that a man loves a
married woman a symptom of insanity ? A.���Not at all. A man may
love a married woman respectfully,
and on that account never marry any
;onc else.

THE  TWO  ANGELS.
God called   tho  nearest   angels    who
dwelt with Him above,
The tendcrost one was Pity, the dearest ono was Love.
"Arise," lie said, "My angels, a wail
uf woe and sin
Steals thro' the gates "f Heaven, and
saddens till   within.
My heart takes up the mournful strain
thftt from u lost world swells
The smoke of    torment, clouds    the
light, and blights tne asphodels;
Ply downward to that nailer world,
and on its soul of paiu
Let lovo drop smiles like sunshine, anil
pity tears liko rain.*'
Two faces bowed before the Throne,
veiled in tlielr golden hair;
Four white wings    listened    swiftly
down tbo dark abyss ol air.
Tlie way w^s strange, the lilght was
lung, at lost the unguis etiino
Whoro swam; the    lost    and  nether
world, red  wrapped  In    rayless
flame.
Thero   pity, shuddering, wept;    but
love,  witli faith too strung for
fear.
Took heart from God's. nlmlghtiness,
nad smiled a sinilo of cheer.
And, lo I   that tear of pity quenched
tlio flamo whereon it fell,
And with the sunshine of that smile
hope entered into hell,
Two unveiled faces [all uf joy luokoil
upward to the Throne:
Four white wings folded at tho feet
ol Him whu sat thereon;
And doeiior than  the sound  of seas,
more soft than lulling flake.
Amidst tho hush of  wing and    sung
tlio voice eternal spake:
" Welcome,    iny    angels,    you    liavo
brought a holier lay to Heaven;
Henceforth its sweetest song shall be
the sung uf sin forgiven."

THK IDEA OF IMMORTALITY.
The Idea of iinnu etality originate**
in the very necessity of tlie case, and
we rightly argae that if God is just
Ho will give us hereafter the opportunity whicli not even Hei can furnish
us within the nnctow limits ol earthly
life. We mny leverently assert that
no soul ever can, under any conceivable circumstances, achieve In these
seventy years a moral perfection
which corresponds with the physical
perfection which tlio body easily attains. There Is something wanting,
to the sum, then, and that something
ls un extended opportunity wliich can
only result Irom au extended existence.
The fact Is everywhere patent that-
the spiritual part of mnn has hardly
moro than waked up when Death
drops the curtain. Tlie lirst act has
beea put oa the stage, and Is being
played well or badly as the caso may
be. We see at a glanco that there
is n plot, and we became interested
In it. Tliat first act suggests tho second and the third, ami ho on to tho
end. The characters are all there, the
dramatic material lor a tragedy or a
comedy is abundant, and when the
curtain falls' on that mere prologue
we have a right to expect���why uot
the right to demand?���that the play
shall continue until tlie plot bus lieen
fully developed and the purpose which
tho author had in view has lieen attained.

essence of religion. Does not the success of novel preaching banish a lesson
with reference to all preaching ! And is
it nut this: 1 he pulpit mes* age should
be presented in a way to plca-e as
well as instruct ? The tendency is surely
in this direction. Formerly alt was gloom
and austerity. Musical instruments were
not allowed. Nnw every church endeavors to have the best of music, and ,1 line
church organ helps to draw and hold the
crowd. Flowers sometimes grace the
chancel and nestle around the foot of the
pulpit and oft smile from a vase placed
upon it. The tiresome forty nine points
ofa sermon have given place 10 a simple
half dozen with great relief to tlie hearer,
lhe heavy labored argument and the
sledge hammer logic are not so much
appreciaied as that brightness, naturalness and earnestness whicli inspires. A
single porct, if a good one. is enough to
carry away. As Henry Ward Beecher
said, what is needed is the power uf
diffusiveness in speech rather than concentration, the ability born of effort and
practice to present one idea in so many
���irigbt colors and wilh such happy illus*
Italians and beautiful simplicity lhat it
will bloom like a perennial flower in the
lives 0! those who listen, ln the future
of the church there ��ill lie shorter sermons, and more of music; less dogma
tisins and more of friendly sympathy.
The change is coming and by none will
it be more welcome than by ihe preachers
themselves whu arc compelled to yield,
us well as others to the tyranny of
custom.
