Wanderings From Comox.
No. v.
As last we boarded the steamer Comox and started��� at. least 1 did; but
Frank wasn't so fortunate. He was late
so came to thc slip on a run. Soon as
be came near ihe foot he slipped, 'cause
the foot of the slip was the color of my
eye. As it was, Frank slipped and fell
backwards stunning himself for an instant
so I flung my flipper around his hindleg
and proceeded to hauLhimaboard,which 1
didtrt do till the mate came to my assistance. When Frank arrived he informed
me that he had lost all his big change in
chiding his small change as well, the
whole amounting to $1.05. I sympathized with him, so gave him the amount he
gave the fishes. When the purser came
around he gave him as good a talking to
as he dared. Tbe purser didn't say much
'cause Frank was a big powerful lel'ow-*-
good looking into the bargain. So he
tried to make a mash ofa pretty girl, but
although she liked his looks all right, she
had an idea he was slightly overloaded
when he took that tumble. She looked
upon me as a hero for saving him from
an awful death. My gtood looks, too
struck her. Soon it began to be rough
so I tried to show effto her, how well 1
could walk the deck, but 1 met witb poor
success. Soon 1 became aware that I
was making an exhibition of myself, so I
went down below and tried to go to sleep
on the boilers Just as I was dropping
off into the land of dreams, I dropped off
my perch as well. I soon saw a gentleman from the land qtrtce, and rice was
giving the fishes and sea gulls a treat,
when the humble truth dawned on my
mind that it was only a matter of time
when I would be just as generous as he,
but the time ! didn't long for never came.
We arrived at the Black Diamond City
in due time; in fact almost as soon as
the steamer did; so we left our pack on
deck and proceeded to paint the town, at
which I proved very skillful, being ns.\
how I had some previous experience..
When we came back our blankets were'
gone into the shed. We soon learned
that it meant 25 cents apiece before we
got them out again. It was here I saw
the famed Duncan Bros, barring the senior member. They gave me a talking to
which none but them could, nor had the
authoriety to do. I also saw their fair
cousin, but I kept well in the back ground
I soon became aware of the fact that
neither the Black Diamond or any lady
in it had any use for me; so Frank and 1
agreed to return to llie Terminal City.
So after seeing the Duncans off I hurried
over to the other dock. When I got a-
bout half way there I came in collision
with Frank, and together we hurried
down to catch tbe famed City of Nanaimo, but the famed City of Nanaimo was
alreadv on her way to Vancouver. Frank
scratched his cranium for a while then
broke out like this: "I'm a ���! if that old
tub hasn't gone off with a couple of pass
engers as what's left behind!" "What's
the odds?" says I, the ss. Comox is still
here and won't leave for an hour yet."
So to the ss. Comox we went. I went
up and gave the wharfinger, Mr. Gen.
Roe, a bit of my mind, but that didn't
get the blankets, but then again it did.
While I was jawing with him Frank and
lhe blankets boarded the steamer. So I
told Roe 1 hadn't 50 cents in lhe world,
so he could keep ihc duds. He said all
right; so we departed in good spirits.
The voyage was an uneventful onc and
we arrived in the Terminal City ;is usual
with thc boat. We patronized the Hash
Dcspensary for a couple of davs, and I
bring treasurer and general manager,
soon put a stop to it by renting a cabin
and getting copkintf utensils, coal, &cj
and then we had a Hash Dispensary of
our own on a small scale. Frank insisted on mv heing cook as well as steward,
so I didn't kick. Now all tlvs time we
were looking for work, and there was an
extra damp rain falling, and we were

Packing Butter.
One great advantage lhat creamery butter has over dairy is in its superior manner
of being packed. The way tlie creamery-
made article is put into the tubs tends to
maintain a uniformity of quality obtained
iu the churn.
A creamery tub represents butter of one
grade all the way through, and put into
the firkin at a siugle p&ckiug. The dairy
butter may be just as good or superior to
the creamery when it part3 company with
the ladle, but where large tubs are used
each churning will form ouly a layer iu the
package. Unless the most uniform math*
oda of manufacture are in daily force in
the dairy room these layers will vary i"
quality. But supposing that uniformity
iloesexist in making from day to day, does
it signify that the whole tub packed by
piece-meal will be uniform? Hardly so,
for producing and putting down fancy butler to have it remain fancy till In the cun
touner'a hands, requires a nicety of operation that permit* of no transgression of
certain principles. ���
That the creamery maker observes these
principles is seen by noting Im manner of
procedure in the premise--. After making
the tub to be used immaculately clean Im
has it i no in t and cool frnm fresh contact
witb cold water, am) theu he drops thi- butter iu, all in ow big lump perhaps, pressing it firmly to the unlet and squaring it off
evenly with tho rim. Then conies the oap
cloth and the rover and it u ready for tlie
refrigerator or market, I'lui nicety ia not
puit-ibfe wiih the small butter maker on
ibe farm, if she or he uses >:ummuu si/e
tirkiua in which to pack their product.
The wooden firkin or stone jar is rendered just, as scrupulously clean at, the beginning perhaps asm the well ordered factory,
but after the first layer is packed away
the domestio maker labors under a disadvantage. Where the creaineryman seals
up a full package and places it aside, hia
brother or sister maker ou the farm must
unseal theirs at every fresh churning.
Barring the probability of each churning
uot being of exact uniform quality it must
be placed upon the preceding layer under
conditions not as asceptic as that governing
the packing of initial one. The sidea ol
the receptacle cannot be freanly cleansed
as each accession of new butter comes
againat them. Theu again, there are oer-
* tain fermentative chaugc-a taking place in
even gtwd butler as it, ages, aud so there
can be no perfect amalgamation oi quality
between butter stratas made twice or thrice
a week anil packed iu oue receptacle. Tlie
proper way to do ia to follow the example
of the creameries, and some of the moat
successful private dairies���make whole
packages from single (-burnings, even if they
be small ones.
We bave noticed dairy butter selling
even higher than creamery in this way, put
up ia gallou and half-gullou crocks or jara.
The facts were that its quality waa just as
good if uot superior to creamery make, and
the small size of the package hit the convenience of the limited  buyer just right.
The aame principle that we have called
attention to above obtains in cheese making
alao. No good cheese maker likes to weld
old curd on to new, unlesa the common
quality be debased. Whether it be mixing
the old curd through with the new, or
bringing two layers of old and new together,
the result in un satisfactory if the production of number onu Block be sought.
It will richly pay domestic makers to
take thia principle to heart in the inanage-
meut of their dairy products. Make every
dairy package a whole oue at eacli output,
just au you would put up a cau of fruit,
sealing il, and placing it away to be undisturbed uutil eaten.
Rules for Butter Making*.
1. Skim the milk clean. There is altogether too great wasle of butter fat in the
ordinary handling of milk on thc farm.
Set the milk iu ice water the year round
and skim it ouly after Is has stood twenty-
four hours, or better still, procure a Baby
separator, if the amount of milk ia large
enough to justify the outlay. Uae the
Babcock milk tester to ascertain how muoh
butter fat is left iu the skim milk, under
your ordinary method of bundling it, und
the chances are you will lind 1 hut the waste
would soon pay for all necessary improvements iu dairy utensils.
2. Kjpen the cream properly. Let it
stuud neither too long nor too short a time.
The usual fault is that it stands too long
aod spoils before it ia churned. The cream
ahould nut be gathered longer than for onc

Another scheme to join England and
France is receiving serious consideration
In those countries. It is proposed to
build a double tubular tunnel under the
Straita of Dover. The oldacheme of building a tunnel under the bed of the sea,
which has been advocated by Sir Edward
Watkiua for years, never received the
sanction of the British Parliament, because
many conservative Englishman believe such
a const ruction would facilitate un invasion
of their island by the vanquished of Waterloo,
ll had also heen proposed to bridge the
atraits. The lateit plan haa the support of
Hir Edward Reed, who ia a member of
Parliament and haa been Lurd of the Trea-
aury aud Kugiueer-iu-Chief of the Admiral
ty. It has been received with favor by a
large number of members of I'arlinieul, aud
therefore a-iema to have aerioils chbucet of
success, and the more au that it avoids the
difficulties and objections that were urged
against its predecessora.
The project consists in simply submerging, between a poiut of the French coast
situated in tho vicinity of Cape Grls*Nee
and another ou the English coast located
betweeu Dover and Folkestone, two tubes
that would constitute two absolutely sepal'
ate tunnels, each serving for the passage
in one direction of trains drawn by electric
Referring to the map it will be scan that
the conh'guration of the bottom iu thia part
of the channel presents on each aides regular declivity that euda iu a gentle alope at a
ine of greater depth. The soundings made
t distances of a mile apart gave as Buccal-

17,5160, 18$, 93 aud 32 feet. It will he
aeen, then, that the mean alope of eaoh
tunnel would not much exceed 0,08 inch
to the foot. There would, therefore, bi
fouud excellent conditions for traction.
The tube would be of steel platu with
double walls, and the intervening space
would be reinforced by 1 beams and filled
iu with concrete. The put ting in place
would he effected by .sections of BOO feet,
hermetically sealed at each end and floated
to the place where they were to be sub-
One of tbe extremities of the section
having been fixed uponasortof caisson that
will af terward perform the function of a pier,
the caisson ia weighted so as to cause it to
aink, The other extremity continues to emerge, and receives the end ofthe following
aection the junction being made by huge
hinges. The caisson of this section is sunk,
and ao ou. When all the sections are in
place, thfi formation of the joints is begun,
Sir Edward prefers to aiuk the sections
uf the two tubes simultaneously jn properly cross-bracing ihem, in order to form
a aort of rigid girder that woilld present
much greater resistance to transverse
The caissons forming piera are designed
to aupport the tubes at a slight distance
from the bottom of the sea. This arrangement possesses the double advantage of
doing away jvit Ja any preliminary dredging,
aince it will be possible to give the piera the
height necessary to avoid the alight changes

Unloading Bananas.
An Fastem exchange describes the IM*
h.vli'ii: of bananas as follows :���
It is au interesting sight to watch the
unloading of a banana steamer. The
wharves are always crowded wilh teams,
either awaiting their turn for a load or receiving their quota of the luscious fruit,
which is stowed away hy the thousands of
bunches down in the hold of the vessel.
Everything moves with celerity and dispatch, and it is wonderful how aoon the
ateamer cau be relieved of her cargo, (jang
of men, generally of the colored persuasion,
are at work in different parts of the ateatn-
er pausing out the bunches, ao that the
wagonH, which are backed right up to the
edge of the wharf at several points, can ho
readily supplied with a load. So soon as
one receives the required number another
takes its place, and thua the work continues
until the cargo is discharged. Men with a
quick eye and good judgment are stationed where they can watch the work closely,
and decide upon the merit of each and
every hunch, so that the fruit is assor tee
as rapidly as it comes out of the vessel, th-
various grades being assigned to their respective places,
of level of the bottom aud of assuring a
free circulation of the marine currents beneath as well as above the tubes. It permits, besides, of so regulating the system
that the upward thrust partially balances
the weight of the trains in each aection.
The stressea to whioh the tube will be submitted by the fact of such passage will be
diminished by so much, and therefore,much
better conditions of resistance will be obtained than In au ordinary bridge.
The uae uf twodistiiict tubes will prevent
all chances of accidents, ami will have the
great advantage of realizing the important
problem of the aeration of tbe tunnel, without auy expense und iu as satisfactory a
manner as possible. Iu fact, each train
will have somewhat the effect of a piston
that forces tho vitiated air before it and
sucks iu pure air behind it to take the place
of the former.
The total cost of the installation of the
tubes is estimated by Sir Kdward atS7fi��*
000,000, which is Ibbs than half the cost
anticipated by Messrs. Schneider and Her*
aent for the construe! ion of a bridge across
the channel.

The setting of the law at defiance by
bodies of men in the United States is an
object lesson which shows that good government is dependent in its ultimate necessity
on physical force. Armies and wars have
been usually associated with monarchical
government, and have been spoken of as the
survivals of feudalism. It is evident, however, that Democratic countries have need
of military machinery���at all events, at
present, whatever may he the case in the
milieu uium. The upholding of the law is a
sacred trust, and it is quite as important to
have the law obeyed in a country governed
by the people as it is in a country governed
by a despot. Ifthe Executives of the various disturbed Slates allow this thing tha
iB troubling them lo go on week after weak
ua it haa been goiug on lately, without
taking any decisive step to repress it, it
will show that there is a weak place In
that ueeds correction. A despatch from
Uuiuutowii, Pa,, saya that two attempts
weru made to wreck coal trains. A Sisv
miner threw openaawituh at Oliver, and
before the train waa stopped tin* engine
aud three cars were derailed. A Utile
further north, Iron and ties were found
piled across tho raila. But occurrences like
thia have been going ou for weeks. The
deduction ia lhat foreign laborera are
���-oo much for the methods of law-upholding
iu the Uulted Statea. Hy ones ami twos
they are arreated, but combined in hundreds
or thousands they aeem able to set the law
at defiance, The real root of the evil aeema
to be that there haa beeu an immense influx
of foreign laborera into the States who an
uot tit for self-government, and who think
that when they get to a --ouutry where
ihey are not held down aud dragooned aa
they have been accustomed to be at home
they oan do what they like.   The ideal of
fovernmeut by the sovereign people has
ei-n cariied in the United States in aome
respects further than anywhere else. The
theory ia that the people do not -a ant much
governing, that the ideas of the mass of the
(.eople are right, aud that they should be
to follow out their own ideas, That is all
very well as far as it goes, and if the sentiments of the people are such as to allow of i t.
The Government of the United Slates iaa
great experiment, and in a century it has
done wonders. It would seem, however,
that all contingencies have uot been provided for, and that a country liable to great
increases of population by foreign immigration has need of a atrong and just administration nf its laws aa i first necessity. - A
moment's thought suffices to show that the
law muat have behind it enough force-
physical, if necessary���to ensure obedience
to* jt. If the policeman is not. strong enough,
special constables must be enrolled, and if
they fail the military must be called on.
The firat necessity of society is to suppress
lawlessness, and this is one of the reasons
why it is unwise to make laws the right
eousneas of which is uot unanimously felt.

John Flattery, who lives near the town of

splintered one leg of the bed, knocked the
casters from under the other three legs and
singed the carpet.
Mrs. Flattery was not harmed. She was
blinded for a moment by the flash, hut
perienced no other sensation. When her
husband came home he found the splintered bedpost and the casters strewn around
the floor. He believes hia wife's life was

Wager, who haa beeu looked upon aa a

paper waa Bent to interview Mr. Wager
and gain all information possible in order
to satisfy the public concerning the truth
of the wonderful cure. Making his way to
Deseronto Junction the reporter informed
Mr. Havin, the station master, of the object
of Ida mission, That courteous official having aasured the reporter that he would find
the caae one of more than ordinary interest,
kindly pointed out the nearest route to Mr.
Wager's residence. Tho Wager family
ia one of the oldest iu the Hay district, aud
Mr. Wager antl hia people are well-known
throughout a wide radius'of oountry.
Arrived at the house the reporter knocked
at the door and was rpiickly admitted by
Mr. Wager himanlf, who it may be remarked, in in his thirty-lifth year, aud win
formerly employed asn section man on the
Urand Trunk Kail way, his section extending
east and weat of Deseronto Junction. He
waa a good workman and faithful servant
of the company. On (ho '.!���*<th of April,
iH't.'l, he waa compelled, ou account of ill
health, to givo up work completely, The
doctor pronounced his trouble to be uervoua
palpitation of the heart. The district surgeon
of the (iraud Trunk Itailway attended I
and did all that medical wit ill could suggest
iu order to give him relief, but at the same
time frankly told him that ho could prescribe nothing that would elVect a permanent cure, Mr. Wagerwan a membur of the
Grand Trunk Insurance and Provident
Society, and during his illness received
the usual pecuniary allowance given for
a certain number of weeka to aick members,
The aociety alao paid his way to Montreal
that he might consult au eminent medical
man who acta aa referee in suoh oases. This
specialist at once pronounced hia caae hopples* ; cure was impossible. He returned
home greatly dejected, and the Insurance
Society paid him the whole amount grauted
ed to ita members in cases of total disability.
Mr, Wager has since that time resided
hia home on the gravel l.oad, nimble t
work, seldom going from home except to
make an occasional trip tn Deseronto or
Napauee, About three in onths ago Mr.
John Kitchen, the well-known section
master on the (Iraud Trunk, who resides at
Deseronto Junction, told Mr. Wagner of the
virtues of Dr. Williams' I'ink Pilla, and
recommended him to give them u trial. Hu
accordingly procured a quant it of the
famous pills in order to give them a trial
Now mark the result. He aoon felt the
good effects of this great medicine. His
appetite improved. The fluttering sensations about hia heart appeared to be leaa

and hia health steadily improved. The
change beoatne apparent to hia friends and

gained in weight. As he remarked last summer he waB little more than a walkingghost;
now, aa the reporter could eaosil aee, he
was a substantial specimen of humanity,
Mr, Wager informed the ropofrter that before he commenced taking Dr. Williams'
Piuk Pills his heart used to beat rapidly
and continue palpitating violently for aome

assuming the very
worst, an entirely free womau, as free as
the air, still yuuug, aud without the loss
of a single soul whom 1 loved or cared
There was shrewd wisdom in what Mrs.
Forteseue had said ; aud I began to feel the
same reckless spirit again coming over me
as that in which 1 had flung away Sir
Henry's money in Paris.
While I was looking over these things,
caled in the window aud looking down the
street towards the sea, I saw Mr. Sabine
coming towards the house with a oigar in
his mouth.
I mention this little detail,
because it is one of many circumstances that will enable my readers
to form their own judgment of the man.
A fly was passing him and he stopped it.
A few words passed between him and the
driver. Then the man to.ik ihe cigar from
Mr. Sabins, put it into hit own mouth,
touched his hat gratefully, and drove on.
"There's a mau for you my dear " said
Mrs. Fortesoue. "I dare say that cigar
cost him two shillings or a half*a-crown;
aud so, although he has only juat begun It,
he gives it to that oabman, who has nover
smoked anything like it before in his life
and never will again. Now I call that
simple, uninfected, kindness from the heart.
It has the secret of kindness, which is
though tfulneas,"
Mr. Sabine (I have before described his
keculiar gait) slouched alouii to our door
nocked, and was shown In.
The first thing to be done wu tell him
all that had happened. He listened without
interruption, and with an expression of
amusement ou his features.
" Did you ever hear anything more mon-
strouB, more shameful, move outrageous,
more downright and abominably mean and
contempt I hie, and cruel and vindictive in
your life?" asked Mrs. Fortesoue, stamping
her foot by way of emphasis at each important adjective.
"I don't know," ho answered tightly.
"I really feel disposed to say for my own
part that after one or two things whioh I
nave seen, nud one or two others that I
know of, nothing astonishes me. Sir Henry
is, to put the matter as mildly aa possible,
a miserable, unhappy old fellow, eaten up
with doubts and fears aud vanities, u much
of bis own creation as FalstatFs men in
buckram, and entirely devoid of theae redeeming points which his age and experience
ought to have given him. His morbid
vanity would be ludicrous were it not, as it
happens, so troublesome.
" Well, he must go his own way. There
li no help for it. The faithful Jackson
will of course do her duty���that is to my,
she will lie through thick and thin. There
will be any number of other witnesses at a
few pounds ahead to swear to all kinds of
thingB that nover happened, and whose
evidence will tally as neatly as the pieces
of a Chinese pu/./.le, when It has been Gtted
together by the ingenuity of counsel.
"There will be a stupid jury utterly in*
capable of appreciating evidence, and the
counoel for tne petitioner will tell them
that hd leaves the case with confidence in
their hands, never having yet seen or ad-
reased twelve more intelligent men. Dear
met It almost reminds me of -Pickwick.'
When a juryman is in doubt, or when he
wants to get away, he always finds for the
plaintiff. The plant iff would not have gone
to law, he argues with himself unless he
knew he was right, anil he must know a
great deal more about it than we do."
We both burst out laughing. Then Mrs.
Fortesoue said: "Pray, light another oigar,
Mr. Sabine.    Neither of us minds. "
"I never smoke in the morning," he
answered, gravely,
"That," I replied, shaking my finger at
him, *' is wickedly untrue. We saw you
smoking as you came along, aud saw you
give your cigar away."
He laughed and lit a cigar. Commonplace as tno remark may seem, I cannot help
noticing here that it is only your bourgeois
who needs a genuine request to be pressed
upon him. As the blue smoke began to
curl about the room, Mrs. Forteseue produced champagne.
"Quite harmless, my dear,"sheobserved,
"if properly qualified," And she tided up
the tumblers with seltzer from a gazogene.
We were laughing aud talking together,
when I heard a parley In the passage, and
then the steps of a man on the stairs. The
door was opened without the formality of
knocking, and a painfully respectable look'
ins man, about tlfiy years of age, with
gold-rimmed spectacles, and a ailk mn-
irella, made his appearance,
" Lady Craven ? he asked, looking from
me to Mrs, Fortesoue,
f in-'liui'-l my head.
"This is for you, my lady," And he
politely handed me a piece of paper. " This
gentleman, I presume, is Mr. SabineT I
thought so. Aud this is foi you, sir. That
lady, I presume, is Mrs. Fortesoue ? "
������ Uo d Heavens, mau I " burst out Mrs.
Fortesoue, " you're not going to serve me
with u citation, are you ?    My poor hm
band has been dead for years."
" No, Madam. But 1 wished *o be able
to recognize you again, Good-day, my
lady ; good-day, mm bun ; gold-day, sir. '
And with a bow that Sir Henry himself
might have studied with advantage, tha
stranger withdrew.
There were a tow seconds of silence.
Then Mr. Sabine shook himself, and said
very quietly und steadily : -- Do not allow
yourself lo be troubled by all this, Lady
Craven. I will watch over yoii from first
to last, and the one thing absolutely necessary at present is that you should keep
your mind at ease.    Whatever you may do
Jon must uot allow yourself to break down.
t would be fatal to the last degree. Mrs.
Fortesoue muBt look after ynu most carefully."
"Trust me for that," cried the little woman. " Mr. Sabine is quite right my dear.
And now for to-day at any rate we wil] let
this unpleasant matter pass altogether out
of our minds, Mr. Sabine, you mustn't
diue bore ; you must, tiniili your champagne and seltzer and go away. Call tomorrow morning about ten, and if you arc
very good aud penitent, and the weather
is very line, I will go out for a walk with
you myself. We must have uo more worry
to-day. Now get away at ouce to the
tennis court, or to your yacht, or anywhere
you like, and do not trouble us any more.
Sufficient for to-day has been the trouble
lucking at Mrs.
1 wish to speak to you alone."
And 1 do uot intend to speak tn you
alone, papa. I had muoh sooner lhat Mrs,
Forteseue remained. '
He was not at all sUvgered by the rebuff. Mrs. Fnrtusoii*', diuerihiug the Interview afterwards, claimed the result as
being "first blond" I'm- myself, whatever
that may mean.
"Then, Miriam, I must say that I have
como dowu with tlio very deepest pain and
grief, and I must also add the very deepest
sense of shame and humiliation, I know
everything ; and no une feels more deeply
than myself that the present is not unit
for upbi aiding. 1 have come because it
is my sad duty as a father to���to���to "
"To do what, Mr. St, Aubyn ?" burst in
Mrs. Forteseue. "Do you think your
daughter wants you down here pottering
and bothering about like a bumble bee
under a glass? What good on earth can
you do, and who wants either you or yom
interference ?"t
am not addressing my remarks tc you,
madam," interposed the Dean. "I have
my own upiulon, as every right-thinking
person must have, of your conduct���of the
guilty part yuu have played lit this tenible
"Have you!" asked Mrs, Fortesoue,
Aud what may lie your own c pinion of
your own part of it! Take my advice, Mr.
Dean, go back to your* hotel. Have you
not the tact ti) see that you are uot wanted?"
Utterly regardless of this interruption,
my father continued:
"This terrible, this crushing news, Miriam,has reached me from Sir Henry himself.
He himself suggested���so at least I gathered
from his letter���that I should come down
here; I should have done so in any event.
It is a fatal and indelible stain that you
have inflicted on the family name. Were
your poor mother alive she would never
have survived tne shook. For myself I am
heart-broken ; I shall never again lift up
my head. A life that might have been of
service under Divine guidance to the Church,
and possibly to the State, is hopelessly
wrecked. But why should I speak of myself? My first duty, my daughter, is towards you."
I was by thia time quivering with indignation, "How dare you assume my guilt?"
I cried out passionately. " How dare you
"Alas, my child,'' he said, "the matter is
beyond proof ; it is idle to talk of guilt,
and innocence, and of proof, where everything is known."
"It is not idle !" I answered, now thoroughly rouseil ��� "and you, who sold me,are
the last person iu the world who ought to
constitute yourself my judge, Vou aold tne
for your own price,anil you have received it.
Now, leave me aud go 1 As surely as I shall
have to answer iu this world and in the next,
theguiltof all this misery rests with you, and
you atone 1"
"I repeat, Miriam "
"Co I" I repeated, and advanced towards
him. I felt as if 1 were possessed, I oould
feel the pulses in my head throbbing. I
could hear the beating of my heart as distinctly as I heard the stamp of my foot upon the floor.
My father looked round helplessly for a
minute, and then, with a limp effort to retain his dignity, turned round and left the
1 never before saw him so thoroughly
cowed, even in the presence of the most
insistent, and obdurate creditor. He positively aeemed toshriuk within his canonicals
and his limbs trembled under him as he
aided himself by the balustrades down iuto
ths atreet.
The tension had heen too groat, and 1
only remember that, somo time afterwards,
I found Mrs, Forteseue sponging my forehead with Kau de Cologne, ami that the
room was swimming round me,
"No talking," said the little woman
"no talking. I have Bent out for some sal
volatile, and heri you are, Down with it
and let me put this oloak over your feet,
and then juat go to sleep again, If you
don't I shall send out for the doctor. Itut
if you are good, and do as you are told, j
will sit here by you aud won't move until
you are all right again, "
I smiled gratefully at her, and ahe sat
down close Iiy me. Then my oyes closed
and I suppose I must have fallen asleep,
again; for, when I next remember anything
it was to find the room dark, aud it was
uot until I stirred lhat Mrs. Forteseue,who
was atill sitting by me, lit the caudles, bustled about, at tend iug tothe Ure, and her labor
concluded, exclaimed triumphantly : "And
now, my dear, we'll have a nice quiet evening together,with uo more talking or worry.
And 1 shall sleep to-night in your room, in
case you should want me,"
Mr, Sabine, who had not taken advantage
of Mrs. Fortesoue's invitation, made his appearance utixl morning about eleven o'clock,
and, of course, we began almost immediately to discuss the crisis,
"Sir Henry," he said, "has his own
solicitors. They are, 1 perceive from the
interesting document with which they have
favored me, Messrs. Nisi, Slowcoach A
Absolute, a very respectable firm in Lincoln's Inn Fields���just a sort of linu an
Ambassador ought to employ. 1 shall havo
my owu solicitor, of ooursu, and a separate
defence.   That is absolutely necessary."
"I know nothing about these matters,"
I said.
"You, Lady Craven, had better go to
Messrs. Wylie A Wylie, the sharpest tirm
in London. I will give you a letter of
introduction to (Jeorge Wylie myself. He
is about the cleverest man 1 know in hia
profession, or out of it, and If he takes up
a caae, cun amort* will win it if it is to be
won. II he had gone to the Bar he would
have been an Attorney-General long ago.
The great advantage of going to him is,
when onoe yon are in his nanus, you have
really no further trouble. He never needs
to bestirred up or even jogged. He takes
a pride in his work, and he can only pursue
it for its own sake, for one way or another
he must be by this time a very rich man."
I went up town accordingly, and sawMr.
Wylie���a sharp-featured little man, dreaaed
in perfectly good taste, and with the most
extreme possession of manner.
He listened to what I had to say, took
notes of it, said he would arrange every tie-
tail, and give tho matter his own personal
attention, and an bowed me out with the
assurance that I should hear from him at
once, if it wore necessary for him to see me
There was something iu his manner that
seemed to reassure me, and I made my way
back to Brighton In infinitely better spirits
than wheu I left it.
There waB evidently nothing more to be
done, except as Mrs, Fortesoue observed,
to trust iu Providence aud keep our powder
dry. I really believe that Mrs. Forteseue
would, like Sir Thomas More, have joked
upon the scaffold. Meantime, by Mr.
Wylie's advice, Mra. Forteseue and I remained in Brighton, while Mr. Sabine
went away to London, although we heard
from him two or three times a week.
And I now began to see how much I had
misjudged Mrs. Fortesoue, In the moment of trial, when I had imagined she
would forsake me, she proved my most
staunch and kindest friend. She was witli
me literally day and night.
I knew that it waa her regular time to
return to Paris, and I pressed her to go.
But she answered that she had alread let
her flat, and ahould consequently stop with
What I should have done without her I
hardly like to think ; very possibly something foolish or desperate. But she kept
me bright and cheerful In spite nf myself ���
insisted an taking me out for walks and
drives; assured me that dry champagne
was better than all the sal volatile in the
world, and made me act on the advice,
and kept me up chatting at night until she
could make sure in her own mind that I
was sufficiently tired to gn soundly to sleep
the moment I went to lied,
"Sleep, my dear," she insisted, "sleep,
champagne, and exercise are the three
finest things in the world for the health,
the temper aud the ooinplexiun, 1 believe
I should look ninety if I did not dose myself with them regularly, They save all
your doctor's bills, aud keep you young ani
happy ever. They are the salad-dresiing
of lifo, whioh without them, would be a
very sorry dish indeed of very bitter
1 had forgotten to mention money
matters ; these gave me no trouble. I received a letter from Messrs, Nisi, Slowcoach A Absolute, intimating that, in ordor
to avoid any unpleasant application for
alimony, they bad received instructions
from their client to place a thousand
pounds to my credit at auy bank I might
direct; and that, ahould the hearing ot the
suit be at all delayed, a further sum would
be at my disposal on any application for It,
Thua, then, there was nothing to do but
to wait i and' I agreed with Mrs. Fortesoue that we might as well remain com*
forlably at Brighton, aa trouble ourselves
with a move or anything like traveling.
In this manner nearly six months passed
pleasantly and almost rapidly away. Then,
after, Faster, came what Mr, Wylie called
the summer sittings, and the caae of Craven
i' Craven and Sabine found its way into the
list, and, as Mr. Wylie gave me to under-
stand, might come on any day.
Application was made to the Court to fix
day for it, with an intimation that it
might possibly last two or three dayt, if
not more, and ultimately a day was appointed towards the end of May.
The evening before I oame up to town
with Mrs. Fortesoue, and at the suggestion
of Mr. Wylie, we took lodgings together
in Saokville Street. " Lodgings," said
Mr. Wylie, ���- look better than an hotel;
and Saokville Street is sufficiently near the
Law Courts, and is a most unexceptional
It is not my intention to go into the details of the trial. I suppose it was very
muoh like any trials of tne same sort. A
vast amount of the evidence was purely
Sir Henry, of course, could prove nothing at all bearing on the real issue. The
Very Reverend the Dean looked the very
fiioture of paternal anguish, and with subline ingenuity contrived to give the jury
the impression that he had warned me
against Mr. Sabine, that he hail specially
come up to London to do so, and had  been
Eradically refused admission by mo to the
ouse, and told to mind his own business;
and���this of course��� that the whole thing
would bring his gray hairs with shame and
sorrow to the grave. His voice trembled
with emotion as he told hii story, and the
jury were visibly affected.
The important witness, the one whose
evidence decided tbe case, was Miss Jackson. She had evidently kept a most careful diary, and her memory was never onoe
at fault, although, aa Mr. Wylio whispered
to me, she was far too olever to overload herself with details.
She declared that the frequency of Mr.
Sabine's visit had aroused her suspicions;
that ahe had spoken to me on the subject,
and had been sharply reprimanded, and
told to hold her tongue ; that, without her
constituting herself in any way a spy,
circumstances had been so recklessly forced
upon her notice that she could not help observing them. These circumstances she
gave in detail, with a most malignant
Ultimately, she said she had felt it her
duty to communicate with Sir Henry
himself, and having done so, had of course
left my service.
Cross-examination failed to shake her in
any way, and I saw that Mr. Wylie by no
means liked the turn which her evidence
had given to the oase.
The other witnesses on Sir Henry's side
were comparatively unimportant; but thB
jury exchtnged glances with one another
when it was proved by the lawyer's clerk,
who served the citation, that he found Mr.
Sabine, Mrs, Fortesoue, and myself alto-
together in my sitting-room at eleven in the
tnorniug, drinking champague out of
Another witueas,, whom none of us had
expected,   waa   a   coastguardsmau,   who
Sroved that, after dark, 1 had accompanied
jr. Sabine on board his yacht, which was
lying in the offing, and had stayed on hoard
at least a couple of hours.
Asked where the yacht aud tho crew now
were, he replied that, to the best of his belief, they were now in the Mediterranean,
but that the yacht had sailed shortly after
my visit to her.
Thia piece of evidence was, of course,
strictly true, aud I did not need Mr, Wylie
w tell me that it produced a very unfavorable impression.
After this, even I had sufficient sense lo
see that the caie was virtually over. I
was called, and I, on my uath, deuied the
shameful charge brought against me, Aud
I do not think that I was mora nervous or
hesitating than might have been expected
under cross-ex ami uitlou, But 1 oould uot
tell, instinctively, that the jury did not
Imlieve me.
Mr Sabine made.as Mr. Wylie rem irked
to me, an admirable witness.
Mm. Fortesoue puzzled Sir Henry's
counsel eitemely. It was admitted that
she had been staying with me, with Sir
Henry's consent, and that she consequently
enjoyed his confidence.
She declared that, with tho exception of
the one visit to the yacht, she did not believe I had beeu out of her sight the whole
time that we were at Brighton; and, as Bhe
afterwards said herself, the more they
pressed her with questions, the less change
they got out of her.
This practically ended the cue, although
I can even now recollect the vigorous and
magnificently brilliant speech which my
counsel made in my behalf, and in which,
I am pleased to say, tie did not at all go
out of his way to consider the feelings of
the Dean of Southwick, or even to spare
him unnecessary pain.
Terrible as the crisis was, I enjoyed hearing things said of my father which 1 had
often felt, but never been able to express.
And when he spoke of my unhappy girl
hood without a mother's care, and without
companions, and invited the jury to believe
that I was, in reality, more ignorant of the
world and of its conventions than any village school girl could be, I did not need Mr.
Wylie to whisper to me that the case was
the moat pure and wanton malignity, inasmuch as it bad not even been suggested for
a moment thai I had in any way done anything to arouse in her a feeling of revenge.
Mrs. Fortescuo's evidence was too uega-

They could not have shot their eyea to the
faot that on oue side or the other there
must be something very like wilful perjury.
It was only their duty to remember the
gravity of their issues whioh they were
called upon to determine, and to allow no
consideration of the result of their verdict
to influence them in the slightest degree.
How far all this aided the twelve Middlesex tradesmen who filled the box I cannot
pretend to aay. They were absent for

An Bleelrlfl Road That Will Attain a
Npeeil or Une Hundred Wiles an Hour.
The most ambition** railroad project yet
planned, if the proposed elevated eleciric
railroad between Washington and New
York be accepted, is tbe construction of an
electric line from Philadelphia to Harris-
burg. It Ih said to bu already faradvanced,
and to require for its realization only the
connect ing of a number of amall local lines,
some of which are now completed and in
operation. The project, it is stated, haa
the aupport of the Pennsylvania Kailroa I
Company, and the line, when iu running
order, will be operated by Lhatcorporatiou.
If there ia anything Utopiau about the
scheme it is the announcement that the
promoters expect to attain a speed of not
less thau one hundred miles an hour, aud
that only through trains will be run. This
is precisely wherein the expectations are
apt to be disappointed. No electric motor
cars have yet been constructed whioh can
rival steam locomotives in speed. Then,
too, the transmission of powerful electric
currents, such as would be needed tu whisk
along a heavy train ot oars without too
great a Iosb over long distances, is still an
incomplete problem.
Where tiaffia is heavy, as in cities, electric oar Hues are au undoubted commercial
success, but the transmission of large quantities of freight at much lower rates involves aome hitherto undeveloped features.
The greater probabilities are that at some
time in the future, with the extension of
waterways, there will be a division of
traffic, but not such as is now regarded aa
the moat feasible. It is altogether likely
that heavy alow freight will seek the canals
as the cheapest method of transportation.
Electric cars, being economical for short
distances, will'afford the means of travel
between points not remote from eaoh other,
while to railroads, as their share, will fall
the through p&saenger traffic. Suoh a division ia regarded as the logical outcome of
carrying facilities by men who have made
a close study of recent developments in this
field of enterprise.
Hair Rno lhe Blgie��l H��1iIIpk   Vessels
In tbe World.
The biggest armor-clads in the world are
the Italian, Italia and Lapanto, sister ships,
eaoh of 15,900 tons displacement. Next to
them oame the monster English battleships
of the Royal Sovereign class, vessels of 14,-
150 tons displacement. These In turn will
be surpassed by the Magnificent and Majestic, eaoh of whioh will displace 14,900 tons-
The largest armor-clsd over whioh the
French flag floats is the Admiral Bauditi, ot
11,900 tona, and the nett to her is theLazare
Carnot, ouly eighty tons smaller. Germany's
largest armor-clad is the Brandenburg,
of 9,8*40 tons. Austria has never built any
armor-clads save those of moderate dimensions, her largest, the Tegetthoff, being of
7,300 tons. Spaina largest is the Pelayo,
of 9,900 tons. The three United States
battleships of the first-olasa which have
been launched aie the Massachusetts,
Oregon aud Indiana, eaoh of 10,200 tons
displacement. The Iowa, now building,
will be 11,290 tons. There is now a reaction
against monster ships, Kngland is the only
naval power that persists iu the policy of
building them, and apparently she is Bearing a halt. The Italians have come to the
conclusion that is indicated by the dimensions of their latest armor-clad authorized,
whioh wilt have 9,800 tons displacement.
The determination of Franco and the United
Stales to keep their battleships under 12,*
000 tona was deliberately taken by eaoh
government, after weighing weight against
efficiency. In this policy Russia also agrees,
the largest ot her armor-clads iu service
being the Ceorgi Pobiedouoset;., of 10,280
tons, while her naval constructors regard
12,000 toue aB about the proper limit.
Of the cruisers now afloat the Russian
Rurik ii the largest, and probably taking
all thinga into consideration, the most
powerful. She is armor belted and is of
10,900 tona displacement, almost 2,000 tons
larger thnn the Blake. The Knglish have
authorized two cruisers of 14,000 tons each,
being determined to see the Rurik and g.j
her-'1,100 tons better. As in the case of
armor-clads England stands alone in accepting this challenge. Her Blake and
Blenheim are nut only exceeded by the
Rurik but by the Spanish Kmperador
Carlos V., whioh has 9,2.15 tons displacement. The largest French cruiser iu active
aervioo is the D'Eulrcoasteaux, of 7,900
tons, but the .leaiino d'Arc is being enlarged to a total displacement of 8,700 tons.

Of tha large problems on the successful
solution of whioh the future of the British
Empire and the stability and welfare of its
component parts will depend, there are
very few indeed whioh are not more or less
directly illustrated by Canadian Experience ; and it is at least probable that the
particular solutions which Canada seems
destined to find for them will, whether for
good or for evil, largely affect the orgauic
structure of the Empire, if only by their
contrast with the very different solutions
which they are likely to receive, and aro
indeed already receiving, elsewhere, aaya
the London Times. There ia aoaroely any
hint to the speculations which are suggested to Ihe political thinker by the condition
and experience of Canada.
Canada Is our nearest great colony, and it
possesses a climate not uulike that which
has developed the sterner qualities of the
Anglo-Saxon race. Its gruwth has lieeu
slow but steady and sturdy, based upou
agriculture aud settled industry, and comparatively unaffected by those impulses of
speculation aud adventure which havo made
for a more feverish, but perhaps less stable,
development elsewhere. As a member of
the Empire Canada stands midway between
east and weat, with a seaboard on both
oceans, and with a ooal supply so rich and
io favorably situated aa to make its western
coast the natural base of the dominant aea
power of the Paoiflo, and, on the other
hand, with a land frontier three thousand
milea in length towards the great Republic
of the West.
Whether these unique conditions, pregnant
it ma) be with the fate of the whole world,
point to the absorption of Canada iu the
United States, or to her acting as the flux
provided in the laboratory of nature for the
ultimate fusion of the whole Anglo-Saxon
race, is a question whioh only the future
and probably the far distant future can
determine. What la certain is that the in.
Sueuce of Canada on the international relations of Great Britain and the United
States has tended more than anything else
to the peaoeful and not uneqitable settlement by arbitration of questions which, in
less favorable circumstances, might have
proved intractable to diplomacy. It ia perhaps not altogether fanciful to surmise that
the beneficent result! already achieved in
this direction may possibly be the germ of
future developments almoat too vast and
too far-reaching for the political imagination of men now living to conceive,
ia determined quite aa much by forces inherent in the nature of thinga as by the act*
ion of individual man or by the collective
impulses of nations. It is only by cooperation with the favoring forces of nature
that great men and great nations can fulfil
their destiny. To ignore these forces or
to resist them is to perish. To interpret
them aright is tho eternal riddle ofthe
political sphinx, and the fate of nations
whioh fail to guess it is the abiding tragedy
of history. What may bo tho fnture of
Canada in relation to the United States on
the one hand and to the British Empire no
the other, no man as yet can say. nut no
man who looks before and after and strives
to measure the forces which prescribe and
determine the course of human affairs can
doubt that the problem here propounded is
big with the fate of untold generations
of mankind.
Like the United States, Canada is a
federation purely democratic in temper
and constitution; but, unlike the United
States, it is not a republic. Here it resembles the United Kingdom; but the contrast at onoe emerges in the fact that the
United Kingdom still retains a fondnesu for
aristocratic forms, class distinctions, and
hereditary institutions whioh aro quite
alien to the spirit of Canadian democracy
Canada presents aome most instructive
points in contrast and comparison with the
other great British coloniea. It has solved
the problem of federation considerably in
advance of them. It resembles them in the
demooratio form of its political institutions, but, wh areas democracy in Australasia seems to be moving faat towards socialism, its tendency in Canada seems to
be quite in the opposite direction. The
difference is fundamental, and ita ulterior ef
feet isalinost incalculable. Canada resembles
the South Africau oolouies In the necessity
whichaoonfronts it of establishing a modus
vivendi between European races of diverse
origin and genua, but it ditfera again in
having uo serious native problems to deal
with. The deatiny of Cauada's function iu
tlie organio structure of the Empire is
fraught with problems of the deepest moment to humanity.

That the Arabs of Egypt are not quite up

is seen by an amusing experience of Werner

experiments on atmospheric electricity
His work had not progressed far before the
Arabs arrived at the conclusion that he waa
practicing sorcery, and became uneasy.
Finally they insisted that the savants should
leave the pyramid. Aa their entreaties and
threats produced no effect, they proceeded
to resort to force,
"I placed myself then at the highest point
of the pyramid," said Von Siemen, "and
charged my strongest Leyden jar at the
moment when a chief of the band was about
to seize my hand to try and pull ine from
the place that I had chosen.   At this critical
moment I brought the rod of my condenser

Frenoh, he says, have takeu the lead iu tbe

the leaves of the ha/el, aspen, ash, elm
willow. The leaves, after being gathered,
are spread ou the barn floor to the depth uf
three to four inches, aud are turned once a
day. They dry in from three to five days,
according to tho weather. When dry they
are piled up ready lor use. It is profitable
to prepare each day's aupply 24 hours he-

chopped-iip turnips, leaving the whole to
ferment. Just before feeding, obver, hay, or

been especially good for milch cows, Young
shoots and branches of trees, with their new
leaves, are picked off every five yeara and

and tho mean yield is equal to about

America succeed, we should by till mentis
itu lie him to extend his visit to Canada,
ami if he visit the Pacific'Coast, Victoria
may he honored by lhe presence of the
grandest man of this century.
It is probable that the constitutional
coiivention.it Honolulu hns Ini-died its
labors, and that nn thc historicnl fourth of
July the new constitution was proclaimed
and that Sanford Ballard Dole was nn
tlt;ti day swnrn in as thc first president of
tin* Republic of Hawaii.
PreUdent Boner's message appears to
gne sitisfactioh, especially that part in
which he declares his purpose to en*
force thecnnstittiiii.ii.il rights nf his office.
Fiance must cease in force her presidents
out of office before thc expiration nf their
term or she will sink into anarchy.
Important results are expected tn flow
from the colonial (-(inference at Ottawa.
It was resolved that thc Imperial government should be asked tn undertake a sur
vey ofthe ocean bed ofthe proposed cable mutes between Canada and Australia
and that the expense should he borne in
equal proportions by (ireat Britian, Canada, and the Australian Colonies.
The assassin, I'eiulcrgrast, condemned
for murder of Mayor Garter Harrison of
Chicago paid the ('u!l penalty for his
i nine by expiating his lite on (he gallows
last Friday. There has taen a good
deal of absurb critcism of the trying of
his sanity after his death sentence, and
the usually sensible Colonist gravely asks
why that question was not settled first.
The ans-ver ii that the question tried was
nut whether I'endcrgrast was sane when
he committed the crime, hut whether he
is now. They don't hang insane people
down that way.
Let tho Struggle End
The tariff hill has passed thc senate
and is now in the House. As it stands lit
present the duty on coal is 40 cents on a
ton, instead of 75 cents as under the pres
ent law. It remains to be seen what the
House will do, and whether thev will
yield up their demand that coal he placed
on the free list. One thing is certain, and
that is while the contention over the tariff goes on their will he 110 improvement
m the financial situation in the slate-;
and considerations ol patriotism, should
prompt thc two houses of congress to arrive, hy compromise to an agreement
without delay. Perhaps, the discomforts
ofthe Washington climate in summer
nay bring about the desired end.
The great Pullman strike is fell even at
1'ninn. It extends to the railways of
one third of the states of the Union. A*
mong other railroads affected is the
Southern 1-nciHc, Of coarse while that
is tied up, it will nol require cnal, as before, and this coal it was getting lately
from the Union Colliery Co. However,
there is, fortunately, a large and growing
demand for our splendid sieam cnal from
a number of sources, and if tlie Southern
Pacini: were swept out of existence there
would continue to be a large output trom
the mines. Put that railway will not he
permitted to he in the hands nf a mob
for any great lenght nf lime; and per-
haps even at this writing it has been
rescued from its grasp. It t-atrics the
t'nitcd Slates mails, and Cleveland, has
already indicated that he will tolerate uo
interference with them. As to these
mail routes���and most railways arc such
it wiil be a struggle between the nation
al authorities and a few* misguided people
Ouler wilt he enforced, but the shadow
ofGaunt Times will grow darker and
more menacing. It will be months yd,
perhaps a year or two, before confidence
will be restored, and prosperity shed her
light upon a contented people. In the
meantime we have much to be thankful
for in tbe Dominion, especially those of
us who live in thc snug little district of

After the late disasterous fire in Nanaimo the Insurance Corn,

Now we cannot afford to carry over large stock without sufficient insurance Consequently we are compelled to unload To clo
