Courtenay River Fishing.
The Courtenay River is probably as
fine a place for fishing as can be found
anywhere. Parties from here, however,
are continually going up to Oyster River
to lish, because it's away from home, anil
perhaps, in this rase as in so many others
���'distance lends enchantment &.c."
As an illustration of what may hi done
here at home, we can cite a case in point
as the lawyers say. While some of Her
Majesty's Warships were exorcising in
Hayne Sound the other day, Collector of
Customs, W. Harvey and Capt. Blair nf
H. M S. Pheasant i-pent a few hours one
day on the Courtenay River, and caught
about 4olbs of as fine fish as one would
wish to see.
Euri-iic'-* nillltiii'y 1 hi-ih.
Mr. Laboncheri! said the other day In
Truth that Europe would aliortly have nt
hor dlspojnl nt least twimty" million
trainoil Koldiers. Tho assertion was disputed, but it turns out to hnvo been an
���midoratati-moiit of tlio truth. Tlm olfi*
cia! tl it til relating to the growth of Euro-
t<----it (trtni-M are set forth In a p'linnlileft
which lias just boon published in Paris
byCunt.MoIard of Bt. Cyr Military School.
It appears that in IHiO tho regular
soldiers and militia of Franco nominally
amounted to 1,880,000 men. but, m is
well known, only a fraction of these
could be promptly mobilised and turnod
to account against iho Germans. On
paper Germany had a slightly smaller
furco, namely, 1,800,000, but proportionally a much larger could bo at once
placed iu the field. At the same epoch
tho military establishment of Russia
compritx-il 1,100,000 soldiers, that of
Austria 700,000, that of Italy 570.000,
Switzerland hud 150)000, and Belgium
05-000. Including England, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, antl
thu Balkan States, for which details are
not given, the wholo of Europe in 1870
nnuf'l ��t the utmost, put 7,000,000 men
in active service.
vv ma in i iu* situation to-day . In 1802
the French army had risen to 2,500,000;
the Russian to 2,451,000: the Gorman to
2,-117,000: lho Italian, which now occupies the fourth place, to 1.914,000; the
Austrian to l,O9l),O0O; the Swiss to 212,-
000, and the Belgian to 128.000. In
most of theso countries tlie expenditure
for military purposes has more than
doubled since ltJOO, and in Switzerland
the Increase has been much greater.
Viewed Collectively, Europe now upends
moro than a thousand millions of dollars
Hiinirillvon her fighting force, which
already amounts to 13,5000,000,
Such figures, however, give but anim-
ppvtect id'ja of the state of things which
"ivilliirPttpuily exist as soon as the new
mUitasylaws shall have come into full
il'ioct Then tho German army will
couiprlftO 5,000,000 men; tho French,
-U.YUI00; tlm Russian, 4,000,000; the
Italian, 3,2'M.000: the Austrian, 1,000,-
OOtfi tho Swiss, 489,000, and the Belgian,
23tJ,000. Altogethor Europe will be ablo
to illapoM of not less than 22,000,000
soldiers, or 15,000,000 moro than nho had
in ISC'd. Knell is the price which bIio
lias to my for Germany's seianre of
AUaee Lorraine. It is at least possible
"tttttr her lighting fovea might be cut
down by two-thirds to-morrow wero
those provinces restored to France.

Interesting experiments hnve recently
been mmio under Mr. \Y. H. Preoce.
witli a view to electric communication
between distant points without wire con-
noction, namely, through air, water, or
earth. Mr. Preeee protiosed to conduct
���axp -vimenti iu throe diiFereut methods.
Firat. by running a wire along the shore
on light poles*, for a distance of. about a
mile, and a second wire from stem to
stern of the ��hip, tho two acting upon
each other inductively through the Intervening flpac'0; secondly, by suspending a
short line over the side of tho ship, so
that it iflik'Ut dip into the sea in the
direction M tho end of the shore Hue, to
work by conduction through lho sea:
aud. thirdly, by running out a light
cable from the shore to the ship, terminating in a coil at the bottom of the sea,
near the ship, but not attached to it,
whilo another coil is placed on uoard.
Theso two coils aro expected lo act inductively, and to give ample sound on
telephone-- by means nf rapid alternations. Tlm 'experiments by thu first
method have beta carried to a successful
ii-ftne within the last few days, the show
wire having been erected along the
Welsh coast, commencing at Lavernock
Point, a little south of Cardiff, and proceeding for a mile in the direction of
Lavernock House. The lightship was
represented for the occasion by tlm island of Flat Holme, iu the Bristol Channel; and tlm line thero erected, paralM
to the first and three miles distant from
it, was about half a mile long. The
shore line was furnished with a powerful generator at LavernooV Point, and
tho islaud line with a sounder lo receive
tho mcKsageij. Tho result was that tho
words dispatched into ihu mainland wire
were heard on the island with perfect
distinctness, but we can scarcely admit
that Flat Holmes represents the conditions' of a ship. Thin method is analogous to that patented by Air. Edison for
establishing telegraphic communication
between two vessels wheu at sea.-���

The rebuilding of Mount Stuart, Lord
Bute's palace, near Uotbsay, Scotland,
makes li tin- most unignitiii-iil mansion
in Great Britain. The base6f the unll-Hug
covers a fraction morn than an iuto, and
is built in a niodiioval pubic style of tlm
thirteenth century. The walls, turrets
and balconies are built of Um beautiful
variegated granites aud sandstones from
Kirkcudbrightshire, and floors and
arches being of clouded Italian marbles.
The main hall is constructed entirely of
alabaster, the supports being columns of
oxidised brass and bronae. The gallery
aud grand staircase are of marbles
brought from Sicily and Carrara. Thu
drawing rooms are paneled with alternate
strips of cherry, walnut and ebony, all
from America. The main dining room,
which was built as to accommodate 280
guests, is finished after tho style of the
drawing rooms, with the exception of
relief figures and mosaics of fish, gaum,
animals, etc. Tho ceilings and chimney-
pieces of all these rooms are most artistic, and so also are tho windows, mantels
and doors, tho worlt of which are extremely elaborate. There arc three immense libraries nnd a billiard room, all
with carved stone fireplaces of auth-ue
design. In one wing there are Turkish
and swimming baths, large conservatories, aviaries, aquariums, etc. Tho
whole palace is heated throughout with
steam nnd hot-water pipes and lighted
both by gas and electricity. The pictures
in the galleries alone are worth foOO.OOO
and tho books in the library as much
more. The building, decorating ami
furnishing of this palace, whicli U without doubt the finest private residence on
thc globe, 'entailed an outlay of ��1,000,-

It la jusl aa well, perhaps, that the milter had become notorious. Otherwise tho
Armoura had lived in that unpleasant condition of being constantly "dlncovared."
U was simply ,i case nf aiming at absolute
secrecy, which hail been frustrated by Frank
himself, or bold and unembarrassed acknowledgment and an attempt to o*rry things off
with �� high hand, The latter course wan
the only one possible, It had orglually
been Richard's idea, appropriated by
General   Armour,  ami  aooepted by Mrs,
Armour and .Marion with what graco wiih
|i issiblo. Tlio publication of the event pre-
pared their friends, uml precluded tho
necessity forroservo. What tho friends did
not know was whether they ought or ought
not to eommiser.iti! tho Armours, It wasu

knew what kiml of delicate hauteur was possible to them. Even tho -- 'centric " Rich-
ard, who visited tho cottages of the poor,
oarrytng soup and luxuries of man xiiidi,
uccompanyiiig thom with tho most wholesome advice a single man ever havo to
families and tho heads of families, whoso
laugh was so cheery and spontaneous, -and
face ho uncommonly grave and sad at times,
���had a faculty for mi* fin el*. Willi mli'iii-ili-
ing suddenness lie oould raise insurmoun table
barriers; and people, not of his order, who
occasionally presumed on hla simplicity of
life and habits, found themselves put distinctly ill at ease by a quiet curious look iu
his eye. No man was ever more the recluse
and at the same lime the man of the world.
Ho had had his bitter little comedy of life,
but it was different from that of his brother
Frank. It was buried very deep * not one
of his family knew of it: Edward Lambert,
and one or two others who had good reason
nover to speak of it, wore tho only persons
possessing hia accrot.
Itut all England know of Frank's mesalliance. And the question was, what would
peoplo do ���-* Thoy very properly did nothing
at first. Tliuy waited to aeo how the
Armours would act; they did not congratulate * Lhey did not console ; that was left
to those papers which chanced to resont
General Armour's politics, and those others
which were emotional and suiisHtionnl on
overy subject,���particularly ho where worn*
en were concerned.
It was the beginning of ihc season, but
the Armours had doomed that they would
not go to town, That Ib, the general and hli
wife were not going, Tliey felt that they
ought to l)e at (.Ireyhope with thoir
daughter-in-law,���which was to their
credit. Regarding Marion they had nolhiiii*-
lo aay. Mrs. Armour inclined to her going
to town for the season, to visit Mrs. Town-
ley, who had thoughtfully written to hor,
saying that she was vory lonely, and bogging
Mra. Armour to let her come, if aho wonld.
She said that of course Marion would see
much of her peoplo in town just the saniii,
Mra. Townley was a very clover and tactful
woman. Sho guossod that General Armour
and his wife were not likely to como to
town, but that muat not appear, and lho
invitation should l>e on a different basis���
as it was.
It is probable that Marion saw through tho
delloatti plot, but that did not make her
like Mrs. Townley less. These little pieces
uf art mako lifo possible; theso lender

Marion was, however, not in good humor,
ahe was nervous ami a Ilttlo petulant. She
had a high-strung temperament, a sensitive
perception of the fitness nf things, and
horror of what was gauolio ; and sho would
iu hrief, mako a rat lie r auatoro parson, If
the lines of life did not run in her favor.
She had something of Frauk's impulsiveness
and temper ; it, would have lieen ti great
blessing to her if she had had B portion of
Richard's philosophical humor also. She
was at a point of tension���her mother and
Richard could see that. She was anxiom
���though, for tho world, ahe wonld not
havo had it thought so���regarding Captain
Vldall. She had never cared for anybody
but him ; it was possible sho never would.
Hut he did not know thin, and aho
was not absolutely miro that Ins
evident but as yet Informal love would
stand this strain,���which shows how
peoplo vory honorable ami perfect-minded
in tnemselves may allow a largo margin to
other people who aro presumably hanorahV
and perfect-minded also. Thero was no
engagement between them, and ho was not
hound iu any way, and could, therefore,
without slashing lhe hem of the code, retire
without any apology; but they had had
that unspoken understanding which most
people who love each oilier uliow even beforo a word of declaration has passed thoir
lips. If ho withdrew because of this scandal
thero might he soma awkward houn for
Frank Armour's wife at (ireyhope; but,
more than that, there wonld be a very hardhearted young lady lo piny hor part in the
deceitful world ; she would he as merciless
as she could bo. Naturally, being young,
sho exaggerated tho importance of the
event, and brooded on it. It was different
with her father and mother. They wero
allocked and indignant at first, but when
the first scene had heon faced they began tn
make tho beat of things all round. That
is, they proceeded at once to turn the North
American Indian into a European ; a matter
of no little difficulty. A governess was dis-
oussed ; but General Armour did not like
the idea, and Richard opposed it heartily.
She must lie taught English and  educated,
ami made possible " in Christian clothing,"
aa Mra. Armour put it.    Of the education
they almost despaired,���all save Richard i
time, instruction, vanity, ami a dress-maker
might do much as to the other.
The evening of her arrival, Lali would
not, with any urging, put ou clothes of
Marion's whioh liaooeen sent iu lo her. And
tlio next morning it was still the same. She

Still nomb*d flat, Mrs. Armour bad tried
to influence ber through Mackenzie, but to
HO purpose, She was placidly Stubborn, It
had been unwisely told her by Mackenzie
that they were Marion's dollies. They
scarcely took iu the fact that the girl had
pride, that hIic was the daughter of a chief,
and a cliieftainesa herself, and that it Wa-
far from happy to offer her Marion's clothes
to wear.
Now, Rlotiard, when he was a lad, had
been on a jouriioy to tlie South Seas, ami
had learned some of the peculiarities of the
native m nd, ami ho did not suppose that
American Indians differed very much frum
certain well-bred Polynesians iu little matters of form and good taste. When his
mother told him what had occurred before
Lali entered the break fast-room, he went
directly to what he believed was the cnuse,
and advised tact with concilia! ion. He also
pointed out that Lali was something taller
than Marion, and that she might be possessed of that general trait of humanity,���vanity. Mrs. Armour had not yet got used to
thinking of the girl in another manner than
an intrusive hcing of a lower order, who
was there to try hor patience,but also to do
their bidding. Sho had yet to grasp the fact
that, being her son's wife, she musi littVft,
thereforc.a position in the house, exercising
a certain authority over the servants, who, io
Mrs. Armour.at lirsl seemed of superiors! uff.
Rut Richard said to hor, " Mother, I fancy
you don't quite grasp tho position. The
girl is the daughter of a chief, and the descendant of a family of chiefs, perhaps,
through many generations, lu tier own
land slie has been used to rospeot, and has
been looked up to pretty generally. Her
garments are, I fancy, considered very
smart in tlie Hudson's Bay Country ; uud
a finely-decorated blanket like Iters is expensive up there. You aee,'we have to
take tho thing hy comparison ; so please
give the girl a chance."
And Mrs. Armour answered wearily, " 1
BUpposfl you are right, Richard ; you generally' are in tlie end, though why you
should be I do not know, for you never
seo anything of tho world any more, and
you moon about umong tho cottagers.
suppose it's your native sense and the hook
you read."
Richard laughed softly, but thero was a
queer ring iti the laugh, und he came over
slumbiiugly and put his arm round his
mother's shoulder, "Never mind ho ft? I
get such sense as I have, mother ; I have
so much timo to think, ib would bi
a wonder if I hadn't some. Itut I thiol*
wc had belter try to Study her, and ooai
her alone, ami not fob hor off as a very in
ferfor person, or wo shall have our hand)
full iti earnest. My opinion is, she has got
that which will save her and us too,���a
very high spirit, which only needs opportunity lo develop into a remarkable tiling)
and, lake my word for it, mother, if we
treat her as a cliieftainesa, or princess, or
whatever she is, and not simply as a dusky
person, wo shall eome off better and she
will eomo nil better in the long run.���She
is not darker than a Spaniard, anyhow."
At this point Marion entered the room,
and her mother rchoarsod briefly to her
what tholr talk had been.    Marion had had
liltlo sleep, and sho only lifted her eyebrows
at them at firs'. She is iu little mood for
conciliation. She remembered all at onoe
lhat at supper the evening before hor
���ia tor-in-Jaw had aaid Uow '. to the butler,
and had eaten the mayonnaise wilh a des-
sort-spoon. Itut present Iy, hecauae she saw
thoy waited for her to speak, she aaid, with
a little flutter of maliciousness. "Wouldn't
it ho well for Richard���he has plonty of
time, and wo aro also likely to have it now
- to put us all through a course of instruction for the training of chieftainesses"' And
whon do you think sho will he ready for a
drawing-room���Her Majesty Queen Victoria's, or ours';"
"Marlon 1" said Mrs. Armour, severely ;
but Richard camo round to her, and with
his fresh chihl-like humor put, his arm round
hor waist, and added, "Marion, I'd lie willing to hot (if I wero in the habit of betting)

Mrs. Armour said almost eagerly, "I wish

" And be proud of it, as it were," put in
Marion, " and pose her and make her a

there was in it too a faint sound of hope.
"Perhaps," sho said to herself, "Richard is

appointed maid, and followed by Mackenzie, and as wn said, dressed still iu her
liealhenish garments. She had a strong
sense of dignity, for sho Btooil slill and
wailed. Perhaps nothing could have impressed Marion more, Had Lali heen subservient simply, an entirely passive unintelligent creature, she would probably have
tyrannized over ,hcr in a soft persistant
fashion and (lot-pitted her generally. But
Mrs. Armour and Marion saw that thin

Indeed, if bor- temper were to have play.

in expression, which moved swiftly from

becamo resolute.
I.i-ih mother and daughter came forward
aud held nut their hands wishing iter a
pleasant good mornini', and wero followed
by Kkhard, and immediately by General
Armour, who had entered soon after her.
Sho had been keen enough to read {if a
little vaguely) behind tho scones, and her
mind was wakening slowly to the peculiarity of tlie position bus occupied, The place
awed her, and had broken her rest by perplexing her mind, and alio sat down to the
break fast-table with a Htrange hunted look
j in her face. Hut opposite to her was a
window opening to the ground, and beyond
it were the limes nnd beeches and wide perfect sward, ami far away u little lake, on
which swans and wild fowl fluttered, I
cully, us she sat silent, eating little, her
eyes lifteii to the window. Thoy flashed
instantly, her faeo lighted up with a weird
kind of charm, ami suddenly she got to hor
feet with Indian exclamations ou hor lips,
and, as if UnOOIlBOlottS of them all, went
swiftly to the window and out ot it, waving
her hands up and down onco or twice to
the trees and the sunlight.
"What did sho say "'"aaid .Mrs. Armour,
rising with the others,
"Silo said," replied Mackenzie, as she
hurried towards tho window, "that
they woro her beautiful woods, and there
were wild birds flying and swimming iu the
water, as in hcroivu country."
Ily thia timo all were at tho window,
Richard arriving last, and the Indian girl
turned ou them, hor body ail quivering
with excitement, laughed a low bird-like
laugh, and then, clapping her hands al:
her head, she swung round and ran liken
deer towards tho lake, shaking tier head
hack as an animal does when fleeing from
lill pursuers, She would scarcely have
heen recognized us the samo placid, speechless woman in a blanket who sat with folded hands day after day on the Aphrodite.
The watchers turned ami looked at each
olher in wonder. Truly, their task of civil-
izing a savage would not lack in interest.
The old gonoral w,is hotter pleased, however, at this display of activity and excitement than at yesterday's taciturnity, He
loved spirit, even if I'- had to lie subdued,
aud he thought on the iualaut that he
might possibly come to look at tho fair
savage as nn actu.il and not a nominal
ilaug'iter-in-1'iw. He had a keen appreciation of courage, und hu thought he Haw iu
her face, as she luriiod upou them, a look
ofdeflanoo or daring, and nothing could
huve got at his nature -pucker. If tho case
hul nit heen so near his own hearth-ntoiie
he would have chuckled. Aa it was, he
said gond-hiimoredly that Mackenzie and
Marion should go and bring her back. Hul
Mackenzie was already at that duty. Mrs.
Armour had had the presence of mind to
send for Calvin, but presently, when the
general (-poke, she thought it better that
.Marion should go, and counselled returning
to breakfast ami not making the matter ol
too nuch importance Tli is they did,
Richard very reluctantly, whilo Marion,
rather pleased than not at the spirit
shown by the strange girl, ran away over
the grass towards the lake, where Lab had
now slopped. 'There wus a little bridge at
one point whore the lake narrowed, and
Lali. evidently seeing it all at once, went
towards it,and ran up unit, standing poiseil
above the water aliout the middle of it.
For an instant an unpleasant possibility
came iuto Marion's mind : suppose tho ex-
uiled girl intended suicide! She shivered
as she thought of it, and yet���I She put
thai horribly cruel nnd selfish thought
away from her with uu indignant word at
herself! She had pas-ed Mackenzie, and
came lirst to the lake. Here shoslaclten-fil,
and waved her hand playfully tothe girl, so
as not to frighten her,��� and then with a
forced laugh came up panting on the bridge,
ml was presently by Lali's side. Lib
yed her a little furtively, but, seeing (hut
Marion was much inclined to he pleasant,
she nodded to her, said some Indian words
hastily, and spread out her bauds towards
the water. As she did so, Marion noti*ed
agaiu the beauty of thoBO hands and the
graceful character ot tho posture*, so much
so that she forgot thc Hat hair, and the unstayed body, and the rather broad foot, aud
thc delicate duskiness,which had so worked
upon her in imagination and in fact tho
evening before. Sho put hor hand kindly
on that long slim hand stretched out beside
her, and, because bIio knew not what else
to speak, and because tho tongue is vory
perverse at times,���saying the opposite of
what is expected,���herself blundered out
"How! How! Lali."
Perhaps Lali was as much surprised at
the remark ob Marlon herself, and certainly
very much delighted. The sound of thoso
familiar words, spoken by accident as they
were, opened the way to a better understanding, as nothing else could possibly
have done. Marion was annoyed with herself, and yet amused loo. If her mind had
heen perfectly assured regarding Captalu
Vldall, it is probable that then aud tiiero a
peculiar, a genial, com radish Ip would have
been formed,    As   it was,    Murinit   found
this little event more endurable than she
peotod. She also found that Lali, when
she laughed iu pleasant acknowledgment of
that Ihiel had very white ami regular teeth.
indeed, Marlon Armour began to discover
some estimable points iu tho appearance ot
her savage sister-in-law. Marion remarked
lo herself thnt Lali might bo a rather
Striking person, if she wero dressed, a** her
mother said, in Christian garments, could
speak thfl raigliah language well���and was
somebody else's Bistcr-in-law.
At this point Mackenzie came hreathlnss<
ly to the bridge, and called nut a littio
sharply to Lali, rebuking hor. In thia
Mttkcnzic made a mistake ; for not only did
Lali draw herself up with considerable dignity, hut Marion, noticing tho masterful
nature of the tone, i-mUii'Iy said, "\l.vo.
ken-do, you must remoiuher that you are
speaking to Mrs. Francis Armour, and that
her position in General Armour's houso is
the siin-.o as mine. I hope it is not necessary to aay anything more, Mackenzie."
Mackenzie flushed. She was a sensible
woman, she know that alio had done wrong,
ami she said very promptly, " I am vory
sorry, miss ; I was mistered, ami I expect I
haven't got used to speaking to���to Mrs,
Armour us I'll be auto to do it in t!u
As she spoke, two or throe doer came
trotting out of tho beoohes down to tho lake
side. It Lab was pleased and excited
lioforo, sho was ever-whelmed now. Her
breath camo in quick littio gaspB ; she
laughed sho tossed her hands ; she seemed
to become dizzy with delii'ht; and presently, as if this now link with, ami reminder of,
her past, had moved her as one littio expects
a savage heart is moved, two tours gathered
in her eyes, then slid down her cheeks unheeded, and dried there in the sunlight, as
she still gazed at the deer. Marion, at fir t
surprised, waa now touched, as alio could
not havo thought it possible concerning
lilts wild creature, and her hand went out
and caught Lali's gently. At this genuine
act oi sympathy, instinctively felt by Lab
���the stranger in a st.range land, husbanded
and yot a widow,���there came a flood of
tears, and, dropping on her kue.-s, she
leaned against the low railing of the bridge
and wept silently. So passionless waa her
grief it H'.-i-med tho more pathetic, and
Marion dropped on her knees beside her,
put her arm round her shoulder, and said,
"Poor girl I Poor girl 1"
At that Lill caught her hand, nnd held
it, repeating after her the words, "Poor
girl I Poor girl I"
She did not quite understand I hem,but she
remembered that once just bo.tore she parte I
from her husband at tlio Great Lakes he had
said those very words. If thfl fates had op*
parcntly given things into Frank Armour's
hands when ho sacrificed this girl to his ro*
venge, they woro evident ly inclined to p'ay
a game which would eventually defeat his
purpose, wicked in it had been iu effect if
not in absolute motive, What the end of
this attempt to engraft thu Indian girl upon
thc strictest convention of KngUsli social
life would have heen hod her introduction
not been at I Ireyhope, where faint likenesses to hor print -nirroundcd her, it is hard to
conjecture. Rut, from present appearances,
it would scorn that Richard Armour was not
wholly a false prophet; for the aavago had
shown herself tint morning to possess, in
their mi den ess, some striking qualities of
character. Given character, many things
arc possible, oven to those who am not nf
lhe elect.
This was the beginning of bettor things.
Lali seemed to the Armours not quite so
impossible now. Had she been of tho vory
common order of Indian "pure ami simple,''
the lusk had resolved itself into niuliiiu.' a
common savage into a very common European. Hut, whal ever Lali was it was abundantly evident that she must be reckoned
wilh al all points, ami that she was more
likely to become u very startling tiguro ir
thc Armour household than a mere cticum
bianco to be blushed for, whose eternal ab
si-nee was preferable to her company.
Years after that first morning Marion
oaugllt herself ahmhlcring at tho thought
that came to her when she saw Lali hovering on lhe bridge. Whatever Marion'a faults
wero, fhe had a tine dislike to anything thut
seemed unfair. She had not ridden to
hounds for nothing. She had at heart lho
���portman's instinct. It was upon this basis,
indeed, thai Richard appealed toner ill tho
first trying days of Lali's Ufa among them.
To oppose your will to Marion on tho ban's
of superior knowledge was only to turn her
into a rchol ; and a very effective rebel she
made ; for she had a protty gift at tho re
tort courteous, and she could take as much
and as well, as sho gave. She rebelled at
first at assisting iu Lali's education,
though hy fi's and starts she would teucli
her Knglish words, and help Iter to form long
sonteuces, and was, ou the whole, quite patient. Hat Lib's real instructors weru Mrs,
Armour ami Richard ; her best, Richard,
The firat few days she mado but little
progress, for everything was strange to her,
and things made her giddy,���the servants,
thc formal routine, tho handsome furnish'
ings, Minion's music, the groat house, tho
many preutie personal duties sot for her, to
bo got through at stated times, and Mrs.
Armour's rat hor grand manner, Hut thorn
was the relief to this, else the girl had
pined terribly for Imr native woods and
pralrloi; this was the park, the deer, thc
lake, the hares and birds. While she sat
.aying over afu-* Mm, Auuonr words and
phrases in Knglinh, or was being shown
how she must put on a.id wear the olotllCB
which a dress-maker from Regent Street
had been brought to mak.% her eyes would
Wander dreamily to Lho trees and thc Ink
and the grasa. Thoy aoon discovered that
sho would pay no attention ami was
straightway ditnnult to teach if aim was not
placed where alio could look nut on the
park. They had no choice, for though her
resistance was never active it was nevertheless affective,
P eseutly sho got on very swiftly with
Richard. For he, with instinct worthy of
a woman, turned their lessons upon her own
eountrli and Frank, This cost him something, but it had its reward. T.iere was no
more listlessness. Previously Frank's name
had scarcely boen spoken to hor. Mrs. Armour would have hours of hesitation and
impotent regret bo.'oro she brought herself
to speak of her son to hi-t Indian wife.
Marion tried to do ita few times and failed;
the general did it with rather a forced voice
am1 manner, because he saw thut his wife
was very tender upon the point. Bill
Richard, who never knew self-consciousness,
spoke freely of Frank when ho spoke at all :
and it was -teeing Lali's eyes brighten and
her look earnestly fixed on him when he
chanced to mention Frank's name, that do
lermined hini ou his new method of inn tr notion. It had its dangers, hut ho had eaten-
latod thom all. 'lhe girl must ho educated
at all costs. Tho sooner that occurred the
sooner would she seo her own position
and Iry to adapt herself to her responsibilities, uml faeo the real slate of her husband's
attitude towards her.
He succeeded admirably. Striving to tell
him about her past live, and ready to talk
ondlessly about hor husband, of her prowess
iu the hunt, of his strength nud beauty, ahe 1
.ih-, strove to find English words for the
purpose, and Kichard fcupplied them with
uncommon willingness. Ho humored hor so
far as to learn many Indian words ami
phrases, but ha was chary of hi*- use of them,
aud tried hard to make her appreciative of
her new life and surroundings, He watched
her waking slowly to an understanding of
the life, and of all that it involved. It gave
bim a kind of lear.too, because she wus sensitive, and there was tho possible dangor of
her growing disheartened or desperate, and
doing some mad thing the hour sho wakened to the secret behind ber marriage.
His apprehensions were not without cause.
For slowly thero came into Lali's mind the
lenient of comparison. Sho became conscious
of it onedftv when some neighboring people
called at (ireyhope. Mr3.Armour,inhersen9e
of duty, which she had rigidly set before her,
introduced Lali into tho drawing-room. Tho
visitors veiled their curiosity and said some
pleasant casual things to tho young wifo, but
she saw the half-curious, half-furtive glunc-
>a, she caught a sidelong glance and nmilo,
and when they wero gone sho took to look'
ng at hersolf in a minor, a thing alio could
scarcely ho persuaded to do before. She
saw the difference between hor carriage and
others', hor complexion and theirs. She
aggorated tho difforctico. Sho brooded on
it. Now sho sat downcast and timid, and
hunted in face, as lhe firat ovenim: she
oame ; now she appeared restless and excited,

From the Arkansas Democrat.
The story of renewed health told in the
following article has boen carefully investigated by the Democrat, and is of tho deepest interest to all parents, Tho condition
of Miss Clements is that of thousands of
girls in our laud, whose health and vitality
is slowly but surely being sapped away.
Palo, list less and sallow girls meet us ou
overy side, and unless the same prompt
measures aro taken as in thc case of Miss
Clements, a premature grave is the Inevitable result. Lulu Clements, the nineteen
year old daughter of Mrs. Cora V. Clements,
one of thc most prominent residents of Lonoke, Ark., was attacked with a mysterious,
wasting disease over a year ago, and despite the strenuous efforts of the local physicians sho continued to grow worse. Hut
blood had turned to water, she stiffored in'
tense agony, and was almost ready to give
up life whun relief came, Hor story is best
told as re ale 1 by Iter mother lo a Democrat
reporter : ���
" lu lhe fall of 1802 my daughter began
to show signs that some disease was wrecking hor sysiom. Despite tho constant at'
lention of local physicians she grew worse.
Her complexion was pale, and sho becamo
almost as white as marble. She complained
of heart palpitation, Her feet and hands
were cold, and bIio was almost driven inio
hysterics by racking headaches and back-
aches and shortness of breath and othci
distressing symptoms, All these conditions
betoken aim-mia, or iu other words watormand impoverished condition of the blood,
which could not perform tho functions of
nature, She had no appstite; for many
days sho did not cat enough for a child tc
subsist on,
" Her condition grew from bad to worst?,
and liecoming alarmed, 1 sent her to prominent physicians in Virginia, Tennessee and
Little Rock. All efforts of thia nature to
regain her health proved fruitless. Patent
medicines of many kinds were tried and
given ihotough tests, hut without any apparent eflect towards inipioving the patient,
'* Mysuif and daughter had altno.-i given
up in despair, having almost concluded
that a restoration of ber health was an impossibility, In the Arkansas Democrat I
espied an advertisement of Dr. Williams'
Pink I'ills for l'ale People, which claimed
that they would give ready relief to persons
suffering from a disease the symptoms of
which were the name as iu thu case of iny
daughter. I purchased some of the pills,
ami commenced giving my daughter three
pills a day. Before the first box hud been
taken an inipiovcinont was noticed. Color
in her faeo was notice I, and ber appetite
returned, The terrible headaches and
lac (aches ceased, and she could breathe
nu re freely. When the fourth box hud
heen laken she was entirely well, aud since
then has on joy id excellent health. She is
now robust and full of life, making our
family happy once more. Quito a contrast
to lhe situation six mouths ago, when everybody thought she would die.
" 1 think ' Pink Pills ' the host medicine
in thc world for the blood, and havo recommended thom to several citizens of l his
place, who havo been restored lo health hy
ils uno. Airs. Henry Brown was In a very
bad condition. Sim tried thc Pink Pills,
when she improved rapidly and is now a
very healthy woman."
Tho discoverer of Dr. Williams'I'ink P.11a
for Pale Peoplo certainly deseivcs tho high
est tribute that pen can frame. His modi-
binfl has done more to alleviate the sufferings
of humanity than any other medicine known
to science, and his namo should he hand
down to future generations us the groatt
savant of the present nge
Druggists say that l>r, Williama' Pink
Pills have an enormous sale, and from all
quarters come glowing reports of results
following tluir use. In very many cases tho
good work has been accomplished after
eminent physicians had failed, and pn
nounced the patient beyond lho hope of
human aid. An analysis shows that Dr.
Williama'Piuk Pilla contain in a oondoilB*
el form all the clementa necessary to
give new life and richness to tho blood
and restore shattered nervoa. They
aro an unfailing Specific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, paralysis, St.
Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheuma-
limn, nervous huadiieho, the alter i-llin-ts of

Our Exhibition.
The first annual exhibition ofthe Comox Agricultural and Industrial Association takes place to morrow, and bids
fair to be a grand success. Every preparation has heen made by thc Directors
which tbe means ut their disposal justify.
The display of stock promises to be belter than was expected, and the display ot
fruit, while not extensive is yet ofa gratifying character. The interest shown by
the ladies is a pleasant feature and many
articles of their handiwork will lind a
place among the exhibits.
l.ct everyone attend to morrow to make
the success of the exhibition as pronounced as possible. It wjll be well
worth seeing, and we feel sure that no
one will care to be conspicuous by his
absence. As a public affair engineered
(or the benetit of the public, it has dc-
mands upon all which can only be cancelled by each doing his utmost to tn
treasc the measure of its success.
l.ct Us Combine.
The cilies have their boards of trade
and muncipal ymeiiimcms represent ing
the people, and carefully watching their
interests. The business prosperity of
each city is careful!)'looked after; every
avenue of trade opened, aiul new industries encouraged. Every agency imaginable is harnessed to the chariot of progress, They are organized so they can
do this, and do it effectually. Hut how is
it with lhe country? Mere each one is
accustomed to look out for himself. Wc
have no organization to look after thfl
business interests of the district. Everything is allowed to drifts at its own sweet
will. Each man in business catches
what trade he can, but is loo weak, acting
.dune, to increase the trade or business
nt the district. There ought to have
been a steamboat company organized
lung ago to connect lhe main district
with thc neighboring islands, and thus
control a large trade which is lost to us.
There ought lo be creamery and cheese
factories in our midst. There is no heller grass ur dairy country to be found
ans where. But our farmers acting separately, and making butter of different
degrees of value, have established no demand for Comnx butter as such. Then
why should we send below for brick and
pay the heavy frieght when we have the
best of material here to manufacture il?
Why have we nut a grist mill? Thc answer to these qucsiiuns is plain. Wc
arc not acting together, and consequently not making the most of our resources
and opportunities. Wc arc but thc adjunct of places where there are organized
bodies to look after their Interests and
command our trade. They are wise, we
arc foolish. Who will start the ball rolling for some organization, no matter
whether you call it a board of trade or
Iiy some other name, which shall bring us
into active co-operation?
We must combine if wc want progress
���combine our energy, our talent and
our capital. The organization of the Agricultural Association was a step in the.
right direction. It will do a certain
work-what it was intended for. Lei other steps be now taken. We arc just beholding what will he the dawn of a new
era for our distict, if wc but combine and
make thc effort which only combination
will enable us to do. There is capital
enough here, and brains, but they must
be united in the propper effort. Let us
pull together. United we shall make an
advancement during the next three years
beside which what has been accomplished in the past is but nothing.

The hint or r of strikes in tho United
States dates hack to 1790. It lnek�� but
four years to make it centenarian. The
initial strike of American labor was that
of the journeymen buot makers of Philadelphia. It was repeated in 1798 and
1799. the object an increase of wages.
In lSUi) occurred tho New York sailors'
strike. Here the strikers compelled
other seamen to leave their ships���a step
that caused tho mustur of the town
guard, the arrest of tho leader nnd the
lgnomiuous failure of tho strike. In
1805 the shoeniaking guild of Philadelphia repeated their previous experiments, but were fined for "conspiring to
raise their wages." In IHOi) the New
York cordwarners imitated thoir Philadelphia brethren of St. Crispin. In 1815
the -shut-maker laid down his awl aud
last at Pittsburg nndonded his claim for
higher pay by getting on tho wrong sido
of the jail door and contributing to the
city exchequer. In 18131 the printers
inaugurated their first .strike at Albany,
N.Y., sb a protest against the employment of nun union men. The agitation
for shorter hours was started in 1830 at
Boston, In 1M-S4 thp laborers on tho
Providence railroad made a wage demand and were subsequently handled hy
the local militia; ISHosaw the first big
mill strike at Putorson, N.J,, resulting
iu twenty six weeks' idleness and u loss
of $84,i'iM in wages, From 1885 to 1HIJ
some fifteen strikes were reported,
iu three ol which tbo militia had
to shoulder their muskets to prevent
rioting. In 1849 was Inaugurated the
struggle of tho ironworkers in the Pitts
bum district. It broke out again in 1845,
and in 1850 made a volcanic outburst,
women drawing bars from the grates of
furnaces nud using them for weapons,
in 1868 and 1860 some seventeen strikes
occurred, whilo from 18Tlto ihtu they
were numerous thun ever. In 1877 occurred the great railroad strike in which
thc military arm wai; called into service.
The damage done in Pittsburg was
placed by govornment experts at $8,000.-
000. In 1SSU the strike slate had a total
of 70-3. From 1881 to 1880, inclusive, there
wero U, 602 strikes, involving not less thnn
1,085,808 men and 23,804 establishments.
Since 1877 we have added to the list
tho Reading strike, the Carnegie striko
of 1888, the Pittsburg puddlers and the
Turtle Creek miners. Iu 18DU tho eight
hour question brought about a series of
strikes at Chicago, Boston, Indianapolis,
etc., Involving about 60,000 men, tho
cost running up into the millions. The
government statistics show that between
the years 1881 and 1887, inclusive, there
occured -J-l,'""'l8 American strikes, with a
direct loss to the strikers uf $91,814,748,
to whioh might boiuldedtheinoaloulahle
losses to eihployors in damage to property and tho compulsory closing of
works, and the costs to tho various
states in the maintenance of troops, etc.
The homestead appendix which is not
included in the above estimate repro
seals a costly event and perhaps do
something in the way of rousing public
sentiment as to tho urgent necessity of
adopting corrective measures.���St. Louis

The news from Ottawa indicates that
there will be a short session of I'arlia.
ment, followed by an election. A platform of partial reciprocity, and reform
of the tariff by the Conservatives is also
foreshadowed It is to be hoped that
the law relating to the registration of
votes may be amended, and an opportunity for every one entitled to have his
name placed on the voters list before the
election, be afforded.
