Brilliant Success.
The masquerade ball last Wednesday
evening at the Hay was an unique and
highly successful affnir. We believe it
was the first masquerade ball that ever
took place in Comox.and therefore it had
the merit, to nur citizens, of novelty.
There were about 140 people present, a
large proportion of whom wore mask-.
The music was excellent, t*ie refreshments ample, and the programme was
happily Varied so as prevent monotany
and please all parties. The costumes
were selected with a wise regard to ihe
characters assumed, no t\yo being alike.
Perhaps thc most conspicuous was Miss
Hritannia. who out of national flag had
wrought a cost tune worthy the character
which Miss Maud Chfte well sustained.
Miss Maggie Macdonald assumed the
companion character of Miss America.
Her make-up was excellent and she was
well suited to the pan. and it was fitting
that in our own Canada Miss Britannia
should be the more stately figure. Mrs.
Sharp looked for all the world like a
school girl, and her true self was unrecog
nizable lo the sharpest eves. Mrs. l'iket
was costumed as a Japanese lady of rank
Mrs. J. W. McKenzie represented a Grecian lady in that period when Grcecewas
in her glory's prime. The two Miss l'i-
kels also wore the garb of Grecian Indies
and appropriately represented different
types. In Red Riding Hood was discovered Miss Emma Macdonald. Miss Ln-
i*e Louts was dressed according to the
recognized description of a French lady
of his-oric prominence. Miss Madge
Louis looked charming as Mo 1'ecp. The
lovers nf Ire'and should be grateful to
Miss Ella Macdonald who so happily
represented the land where "green grows
the rushes, O." In a Circassian lady was
found, when she unmasked. Mrs. \V. II.
Anderson. Miss H���-made u*. acquainted with the appearance nf an Italian lady
Mrs. J. j). Holmes assumed the modest
role of nurse.and Miss Holmes jn her nau
tical robes might be likened to a sen gnd
dess. Fair Whiter, in her bnijMer moods
was represented by Miss' IV*adnc1l. A-
l*i,ong those, who for correct character
and costume, evoked favorable remark,
was Mrs. Nix.in, who appeared in the
garb of a "fish wife". Thc other ladies
were not in character costume. The gen
tlemtn were costumed appropriately and
Ift'soine cases quile uniquely, The Miss
ing Link,was conspicuous, and the Devil
was there too, There was thc duke of
York, a page from lhe court of Louis the
^ Fourteenth, the soldier, the dcuble epaul-
leted officer, the Turk w-lh his black mask
and little red turban, Silting Bull, Lobcti-
gula.and Ti Fung.
It is understood thata handsome sum
was netted which guss to the new hall or
public building on Denman Island. The
l>;t.t was perfectly orderly and nothing
rude or- indecorous was observed, bui
there was an air of pleasantry anl a vein
or enjprtnenl Stirrounomg nnd running
through the hours, which seemed all too
fleeting.
It is due Mrs. Nixon who originated
ihe hall to say lhat its success was largely due to her zeal, energy and thoughtful
attentiow to detail. She was its soul, but
was ably assisted by Mrs l'iket of Penman Island. Credit is especially due
Ray people who took a deep interest in
the.ball, and were mostly all present.
The Mines was also well represented,
as was Courtenay and the Setilemen-.
We have heard the criticism made that
it was taking the money out of this community for a purpose in which we had no
interest Out upon such narrow minded*
ness! The Denman Island people have
spent their money for years at our stores,
attended our gathering*., and with a few
outrageous exceptions, there is a general des-ire to reciprocate, and hearty rejoicing at ihe financial success wlvch has
attended the effort. We trust that ihe
ball at Union tonight (^Vfcdne-nday)which
is engineered by tlie same panics and for
thc same purpose may bring in even
more dollars; it would be hnrdh' possible
to out-shine the Bay ball in am other par
ticular.
Disgraceful _ Proceedings.
The proceedings in lhe House on Friday and Saturday last will be read with
mingled pain, regret nnd indignation.
Whatever injures thc dignity andchr.rac
ter ofthe legislature injures the Province
and every urn-m belonging to it. Legislators are supposed to be reprcsentaiive
men; and if they loose all sense of (ieccn
cy and self respect, what reason has anyone to (eel a pride in being .1 Uiitisli Co-
hunbi.m? Mr. Heaven, who declared so
vehemently that the proceedings w*uUI
disgrace tlie legislative assembly in the
eyes ofthe whole world, must be held
lavgclv responsible for what occurred.
If he fell that the government withheld
information which it was fairly bound to
furnish, it was his duly in calm, dignified

culated to excite the worst passions rf
his followers, and turn the legUlrrtlvo hall
into a hear garden. Abusive language
never yet accomplished any good. He
knew ho was in a minority, and the long
tiresome session, with its unhappy incidents, must end just as it did, in his defeat. His purpose appear** to have ben,

other construction can be put or, Cotton1*'
challenge for the chairman to order the
serjeant-at-arms to arrest him? The pur
pose evidently was to provoke ihe government intg some act of indiscreiiin.
The scheme tailed. Their fevolut'tonnry
action has injured their party and covered themselves with mciitcd reproach.
Hall's action -vas reprehensible but sing*
ing is better than vituperation. Martin
iu ifoing to sleep set an example which
lhe members, undtr lhe circumstances,
could only have in proved Upon by going

Victoria, Feb. 24. ��� The most extraordinary scene in lhe history of the leg-.
islatureof British Columbia occurred in
the session which lasted from 2 p. m.. Fti
dav through the entire night until Satin-
daynoon.The i louse had concluded its act
ion on tlie estimates when ihe Opposition
demanded to, know the reason for the
non appointment of the fth minister.
The Government refused to answer. The
Opposition appeared determined to have
nn answer. The House wns in commit
lee ofthe whole with George Bolum Mar
im of Vale in the chair. After midnight
Hon Robert Heaven leader of ihe OppOs-
sitlon had the door and lashed the government most unmercifully, Suddenly
Robert Hangly Hall or Cassia.- com-
menced singing in a loud voice, ''He's a
jolly good fellow". This caused a great
disturbance, and members called loudl-
10 oulcr. Col. Uaker then asked the
chairman if ii was in order for a member
10 wipe his nose with his linger. The
chairman replied iX.-i, ihc matter was entirely at the members Option, Kitchen
of Cnilliwack furiously resented ihe insinuation of Col, Bukcr, and denied that
he was making such use ol his digit. He
declared -hpt Col, Uaker was evidently
from Hi,ings (late where everybody wiped their nu.-c wiih ihe sleeve. He was
called to o der. Martin left Hie chair
and was succeeded b'v Hall who atlcmp
ted to stop the meeting while Heaven
was on ilie floor. Heaven shouted that
Hull was a disgrace to the Legislature.
Dr. Mtine expressed surprise th.it mem
bets would sit and allow to he carried
out an outrage In a manner likeihat. lie
would not be sat upon any how, Hall
at unaminiuus request of the Opposition
left ihc chair, and Martin took his place,
and quickly fell asleep, but soon awoke
and attempted to put a motion when
Heaven and Kitchen were on their feet.
A tremendous row en ued when Heaven
accused Martin of being ask***p. Martin
da hed his book's and papers on the lloor
and yelled, "If nature calls me to sleep 1
am going to slcco anyhow" Half thc
house was asleep when Manin slumber*
ed, Ho was aw.tkeded at 6 o'clock in
thc in irniny, when told him he did not
know what he was about and believed
thai the Government instigated him to
do as he did. Cotton said nobody should
sit on him. Speak Higgins who was
c.died in sdd he would stand no nonsense, gave his ruling and retired. Heaven declared lhat the proceedings that
morning would disgrace the legislative
assembly in thc eyes ot the world. At
7:15 he moved lhat thc committee rise
and report progress. The Government
members voted this down. Heaven then
left thc house. Thc government members said they proposed lo slay with it.
Thc Opposition defied them and said
lhey could not be worn out by them. The
House finally adjourned at 1,30 p. m.,
thc estimates having been passed,
Another wrangle occurred this (Monday 1 forenoon about.the imperial institute in which Col. Haker said Heaven and
his colleagues wonld be hissed from the
platform of the Institute it they attempted to speak there.

Give Oowb Good Eetldin;.
C. L. Goodrich in Hoard's Dairyman, in
replying to an inquiry mado through that
journal about keeping cows without
bedding gives excellent advice on that
subject as follows:
"1 would liko to give a little experience of
mino in that line, When I began keeping
cows in nights this fall I had no bedding
and they either had to Ho on the bare lloor
or stand up, and they chose the latter
good share of the time. Occasionally we
would see a oow lio down but Bho would
get up a^ain in a few minutes apparently
disgusted, WIiog wo began using bedding
wo noticed a great change. As aoon as a
cow was milked she would lio down with a
sigh of contentment that meant she waB perfectly happy. When wo got through milking
nearly every cow iu the barn was lying
down.
"Some ono truthfully said that the man
who kept liis cows on halt rations did not
deserve tho privilege of sitting down to
good diuner. I uay that a man who
pretends to he a good dairyman and makes
his cows tic on a hard, hare floor does not
deserve a leather bed or spring mattress to
sleep on."
Dairying dovelopes the humane Bide of
those engaged in it, especially the BUoceta-
ul ones. And it is pretty certain if there
'ro those iu it that aro not humano or in
"lined lhat way they will not be successful.
A Remedy for Smnt-
The Department of Agriculture recommends tho following remedy for stinking
smut in wheat: Immerse the Heed for a few
minutes in scalding water not much above
132 degrees, and not In any case above 135;
place the grain supposed to ho infected in
Backs in <|uantitic*-i of half a bushel at a
time; immerse it first in water having a
temperature of II!) degrees, aud whon
warmed plunge it iu another vessel where
the heat shown the temperature required.
Tho volume of scalding water should bo six
to eight times as great as the seed treated
and the thermometer should be consulted
���til the time wheat is in tho scalding water.
Tho grain,after remaining Iii minutes under
treatment, is taken out and dried. It. in
Irst to treat the seed just before planting.
Ileforo placing in tho sacks again these
Bhould be thoroughly boiled IB minutes.
Thia is done to prevent any spores ot amut
whicli have escaped from the dry wheat re
maining to infect the seed after it has beoi
elcaucd.
Sterilizing Milk.
At the request of the secretary of agriculture, the chief of the bureau of animal industry has furniahod tho fuHowiog simple   directions for tho Bterili nation of milk���
Thc sterilization of   milk   for   children,
now (piite extensively practiced in order to
destroy the injurious germs   which it may
contain, can be satisfactorily accomplished
with very simple   apparatus,    Tho   vessel
containing    the
milk, which may
be the bottle from
which itis to bo
used or any other
suitable vessel,is
placed inside of
a larger vessel of
metal, whicli con-
luiiis the water.
Ifa bottle, itis
plugged with ab>
sorbonteotton.If
this is ai bander
in its absence
other clean cotton will answer,
A small fruit
Jnr loosely lovered may bo used
Instead of a bottle.   Tlio   requirements
are simply thut ton interior vessel Hlmll be
raised about half mi inch abovo the bottom
Of the other, and that ttie water shall reach
nearly or (,uitu m high aH t|l0 ,������������(_ T(|0
apparatus ia then lieatml on a range or stovo
until tho water reaches a temperature of
15."i degrees Kahionbeit,when itis removed
from the heat and kept tightly covered for
half an hour. The milk bottles aro then
taken nut and kept In a cool place. The
milk muy be used any timo within twonty-
lour hours. A temperature of 150 degteos
maintained for half an hour is sufficient to
destroy any germs likely to ho present in
the milk, and it is found in practice that
raising the temperature to 155 degrees und
then allowing it to stand in tho heated water for half an hour longer insures the proper temperature for tho required timo. Tho
temperature should not ho raised above
155 degrees otherwise tlie taste and finality
of the milk will he impaired.
Tho simplest plan is t.j tako a tin pail
and Invert a perforated tin pie-plate in tho
bottom, or have made for it a removable
false bottom perforated with holes and
hiving legs half
an inch high, to
allow circulation
of the water. The
milk-bottle is sol
Hon this falao hot
torn, and milli
dent water is put
into the pail to
reach the level cf
tho surface of tho
milk in the hot-
tie. A hole may
punched in
tho cover  of the
pail, a cork Inserted, and a
chemical thenno-
meter put through the cork, so that tiie
bulb dips into the water, Tlie temperature
can thus ba watched without removing tho I
oovur. If preferred, u uului.ty dairy
thermometer may be used and tho temperature tested from time to time by removing
the lid. This is vory easily arranged, ana
ib just as satisfactory as tho patented apparatus sold for tho same purpose. The
accompanying illustrations snow tho form
of apparatus described.
Farm Notes*
The best farmers to-day are those who
are the best Btudents, who are trying to
understand some of the principles which
underlie successful agriculture. In Eogland
fanning is considered a business which must
bo learned. A man without experience
would liav<j dilliculty in renting a good tarm
there, no matter how much capital he might
have : and, again, no matter how muoh
experience ho might havo, he could not lease
a farm uulesB he could show enough capital
to operate it properly.
It has been proved that soil which has
heen deeply and thoroughly plowed contaius
more water than that which bus boen settled compactly by rains. It has also been
shown by actual tests that a thin covering
of loose soil, often stirred, protects the
soil beneath from evaporation and on-
ahles it lo retain water much longor than
without this mulch. There are, however,
many farmers wbo know those facts, but do
not tukc advantage of them, and theao are
tho vory one*, who grumble loudest wheu
overtaken by a drouth.
One of tho strongest reasons why farmers
ahould work earnestly for better roads is
that they increase tho value of his lands.
Wo can seo this in any district or country
whero part of the roads aro good and part
had. The farms which border along a hard,
well made nud, one over which full loads
can be hauled in winter aud spring as well
as in midsummer, are alwaya in demand at
good prieu's.whilo farms which aro perhaps
equally productive, but situated upou roads
which can ho traveled throughout a good
portion of the year only with constant annoyance and trouble, have much greater
dilliculty in procuring a purchaser, even
though offered at a less price.
Buckwheat is one of tiie best crops to
grow to exterminate quack or couch grass ;
it will do this without other labor than the
plowing, sowing and harvesting. It should
lie sown rather thick, and have a good
dressing of fertilizer to stimulate a good
gruwth ; and, although thi grass and buck*
wheat will eomo up together, or with the
.'rass a Utile ahead, the buckwheat will
quickly outgrow the other, and by shad'
ing will kill it, and rot tho tough sods. If
���.here ure any phizes where tt is not quito
killed tho first season, sow rye after the
wheat, plow under in spring, and repeat
thc crop of wheat. Besides answering for
this purpose, a good crop of buckwheat is
fairly profitable in itself.
Tbe farmers of Wisconsin are reputed to
he the most prosperous of any in the United State?. For years farmers' institutes
have been hold regularly in every county
in the stato. There are nearly 1,000 silos
in the state���nearly four times as many as
in any other one. It has a great dairy Interest, is a great hog growing state, and a
-���reat place for improved stock of all kinds.
AU these am said to be in a great measure
the outcome of the inatitute work.
Tho relative importance of the potato as
a food crop may be judgod by the fact that
in Europe the crop for all the countries reported aggregates moro than the combined
bushels of the wheat and rye crop, and the
crop of that continent exceeds in amount
thc whole wheat crop of the world. Germany is thc greatest potato producing and
consuming country in the world, with an
average annual production of 900,000,000
bushels, Tho average crop of the United
States ia about 170,000,000 bushels. It
would s'jijiu that there ia room for an incroaae
here.
While fair crops maybe grown in a rich
soil with indifferent preparation, tho best
growth and yield aro only possible by having the aoil in a fine tilth before planting
the seed, and, as far as possible, keeping it
in sueh condition during growth. With
all cultivated crops thc host plan of man*
agement is to plow reasonably deep, prepare the soil to a good tilth beforo planting
tho seeds, and then keep it thoroughly bu
during growth by shallow surfaco cultivation. This puts the available plant food
in a good condition to ho taken up hy the
growing plants, uud helps materially in
supplying the necessary moisture.
Small farms have certain advantages over
largo ones. On the small farm, where
everything is on a small scale, uvenues are
open to tho owners which aro practicall*
closed to the largo farmer. The small
farmer is not so crowded with work, ao
that no 1ms more opportunity to look into
the details of his business, pay more at*
tention to the marketing of his produce,
and, in fact, to farm more closely in many
ways, lie should feed all grain, hay and
straw right on thc placc;in selling he should
aim to get his products right to thc consumer, without, the intervention of a middleman.
This will largely increase the profit from
liis operations. Extra caro should be taken
in the preparation of everything which
goes to market. One can easily then engage
all tho good butter, fresh egga,etc., to
private customers at a much higher prioe
than could be obtained for the same goods
from the grocer. Itis these little matters
which count, aud tho small farmer is io
position to take advantage of them.
The difference in the grade of a few
quarts of seed becomes a difference In bush*
els in tho crop. Houco it pays to select it
with tho moat perfect care. This applies
to corn, and, though a littio late for thia
season, farmers might lay this item aside
for another year with profit to themselves,
Make tho selection of the seed oars early,
ami let it he the solo business for tho tlmo
being; pass along tho rows with a half
bushel basket, leaving tbo ears at tho ends
of thu rows to be gathered up hy the team,
(lot the well tilled, curly maturing, deep
grained cars; havo an oyu to tho stalk, alao,
giving preference to thoso neither too ilwari
nor overgrown to those having no makers
and lo thoso bearing but singlo eirs. Ono
ear is enough. Whether iu hills or drills,
tho corn should average a stalk to each foot
of row. With one oar to the ntalk this
would give a.yield of onu hundred   hushuja
to tbe acre.   Avoid sulks show Ing any sign
of ilisuase. Leave n fow husks on, so that
lho ears may he tied together in bunches ;
then hang thorn up whore they will dry
thoroughly before cold weather. When
shelling this heed corn it will pay to make
a second selection of a few dozen of the
choicest ears for pedigree seed, to bo planted Iiy itself next year, from which to make
further selection. This method will Improve one's seed bo that he need have do
fear of its running out.

The current isaue of the National contains
an artiole headed " French and English,"
recalling the exaggerated tone of the Nelson
series which had such an unfortunate outcome.   The writer begins by remarking on
recent reports of unfriendly relations  be*
tween France and England, and aaya that
France haa forgiven Russia for the humiliation of the retreat from Moscow, and will
forgive Uermany for tho defeat of 1870, but
sho will nover forgive England for Waterloo.
The reason is very simple.   France if just;
sho is frank, and sho has the defects of her
qualities; she detests perfidy.    England
has been a disloyal enemy ; aho haa fought
France like a marauder, like a prowling
camp follower after the battle.   During the
combats of half a century she has been the
motive power of all the coalitions.   She
made mischief every time thero was a chance
of peace aud the accomplishment of the
great reforms that the Emperor dreamt of in
his powerful genius for administration. After all thc nations had given the best of thoir
blood   lo undermine the giant who had
astonished the world, England stepped in,
and without ever  gaining  a victory, but
thanks  to  the perfidy  of s traitor, reaped the glory of tho final defeat of the great
Napoleon.  The battle of Waterloo remains
unpardoned, because the English had done
nothing to gain it.   Then followed the un*
orthy conduct of England  towards Napoleon, his cowardly Imprisonment and his
martyrdom tinder that true British brute,

cowards who martyrise a beaten  enemy,
tho traitors who make a pretence of " lair

ono reason uf the enmity  between France
and England ; others are conllictlng interests   and   different    characteristics.    The
Frenchman la open, frank,   joyous and frivolous. Tho Englishmen is reserved, hypocritical, grave and melancholy. The Frenchman loves art and   pleasure ;  the Englishman money   and   trade,    Tne Frenchman
is generous;   tho   Engljahman   selfish and

Englishman calculating, and so on.

A Terrible Snffcrer From SI. Vitas'Dance
-Coald Nui Feed Herself mats Had lo be
ClteelT Walehed-A I'tai-He Acknowledgment by Uer Grateful Parents.
From tho Sholburne Economist.
Many of the readers of the Economist
have doubtless been impressed to a certain
extent by the reports of miraculous curea
effected in varioua parte of the country by
the intelligent use of Dr. Williams' Fink
I'ills for Pale People, and yet in the minds
of a few there may linger just the shadow
of a doubt regarding the veracity of these
reports. To be candid, the writer of thia
article, confesses to have had in the past a
desire to avoid the miracle column of the
papers, but now he admits that were the
cases anything like that which came under
hie personal observation a few days ago,the
proprietors cannot Biy too much concerning
these pills and their curative powers in tho
many diseases to which flesh ia heir.
Ono day laat week the reporter waited
upon Mr. and Mrs. John Lindsay at their
home, Lot ,11, Con. 1, K.H.S., township of
Mono, and listened to the words of grateful
acknowledgment which fell from their lips
while describing tho terrihle malady from
which one of their children had been
suffering, and of the complete restoration to
health effected by the use of Dr. Williams'
I'ink Pills, It appcara that during the
winter of 1891-2 tho child, Pernio Klla May
by name, and now aged about seven yeara,
contracted la grippe, uno night during
her illness her father heard hor scream and
ran to hei bed. The child appeared to be
in a terrible fright aod for somo time
eould not be pacified, and although ahe
apparently recovered from the usual
symptoms of la grippe, she was never the
aamo in health ana strength. Her nervous ayatem seemed to have become
deranged, and as time passed the terrible
symptoms of St, Anthony's or St Vitus'
lauoo were noticed by the parents. Doctors did all they could for her, but instead
of getting better she became worse, until
the parents had given up all hope. She
could not feed herself, nor could ahe take
hold of a cup when handed to her. She
would frequently fall down when attempting to walk across the floor, had to be closely watched for fear aho might at eome time
fall on the stove. Nor could she sit on i
chair. It seemed as though ahe had com
plotety lost control of her limbs. Prior to
her illness she had usually assisted in dressing herself���-now her parents had to hold
her limbs when putting on her clothing.
She could not turn herself in bed and
hor parents had lo turn her. Sho was
perfectly helpless and had almost lost
the power of speech. When Bhe did
speak it waB with difficulty she waa understood, aa her tongue was drawn to
one side and she had lost control of it,
She had a strange, demented look that
foreboded the loss of reason, The condition of the poor child was pitiable in
the extreme. One day about tlie eud of
January last the father read of the case
of little tiniest Duke, who had been cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and he
secured a box frum Mr. Brown, druggist,
of Sholburne. Thoy commenced tho treatment by giving the child three pills a day
one a.'ur e..ch meal���at d never varied from
that treatment to the end. Before the first
box had been used used they noticed that
the little girl's appetite was improving, and
by the timo three boxes were used she had
improved to a marvellous extent. In April
last, the child having fully recovered, no
more pills were given her. Several months
have passed sinco then and there has been
no relapse end no sign of a return of the
terrible malady. Iho cure seems to bo complete and no further medicine has been re
quired. The parents state emphatically
that Dr. Williama' Pink Pilla saved tho life
of their littio girl.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a specific
for all diseases ariaing from an improver-
ished condition of the blood or a shattered condition of the nervous (forces,
auch aa St. Vitus' dance, locomotor
ataxia, rheumatism, paralysis, sciatica,
the after effects of ia grippe, loss of appetite, headache, dizziness, chronic ery
sipclas, scrofula, etc. They are alao a
specific for the troubles peculiar to the
female system, correcting irregularities,
suppressions and all forms of female weakness, building anew the blood and restoring
the slow of health to pale and sallow che?ka
In tho cisc of men they effect a radical cure
in all cases arising from mental worry,
overwoik or excesses of any nature. Thi
pills are not a purgative medicine. They
contain only life-giving properties, and
nothing that could injure the most delicate
ayatem.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are aold only in
boxes bearing the firm's trado mark and
wrapper, (printed in red ink.) Bear in mind
that thoy are never sold in bulk, or by the
dozen or hundred, and any dealer who
offers substitutes in this form is trying to
defraud you and should bo avoided. Ask
your dealers for Dr. Williama' Pink Pills
for Palo People and refuse all imitations
and substitutes.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills may be had of
all druggists or direct by mail from Dr,
Williams' Medicine Company, Brockville,
One, or Schenectady, N. Y., at 50 cents a
box, or six boxes for $2.50. The price at
whleh these pilla are sold makes a course of
treatment comparatively inexpensive ai
compared with other remedies or medical
treatment.

Longfellow's Wayiide Inn is in tho town
of Sudbury, Massaohueotts, nbmt twenty-
five miles west of Boston, on the main roid
between lioston aud Worcoater, It waa
built by .John Ifowe early In the 17th century for a country seat,and it declined witli
tlie fortunes of the family from a stately
mansion to an inn, hut never a humble one.
It was lirst llccnsod under the namo of "Tlie
Hod Horae Inn," i-'eptnmber 14th, HICil.
When Sudbury was burned by t e Indians
iu HI70 It was lho only house in town that
escaped destruction. It is a --reat plain
colonial m.in-tioii.tuiilt of solid oak,uml uiaile
picturee-pio by ita gambrel root, moonstone
chimneys, and its original tiny windows
(eighty in number,) witn ita loadun sashes.
Ami hi range enough it looks In this country
of tii-nio rows with nu yesterdays. No
wonder its plcturei-i-iie image liugored in
Lotif-fullow's mind until he used itas a connecting link in a chain of poems.
Longfellow first saw the inn when nt tho
ngo of nineteen, ho was ou hia way to New
Vork, to sail for Europe, It was thon a
coaching station. Later in life wheu the
Inn still railed tho Red Horse inn,became a
favorite resort of some of his friends, he
visited them and took observntiona for the
poems afterwards written at Cralgio house
and N it ban t.
Longfellow's description of Lyman Howo,
the landlord, is said to he true to lifo. He
was "justice of peace,proud of his name and
race, and coat of arms," an I known everywhere as "The Squiro." One old man in
Sudhur v said to me, "I'd a known ho meant
���Squire Howe if ho hadn't put Ida name
there; it sounds jest like him." He was veiy
proud of tho family silver brought from
England, all bearing tho Howe creat. And
their raro and delicate china would delight
the heart ol a connoisseur.
These Howes were descended from the
md-to family of that name iu Britain, and
showed their pure ancestry by their refined
speech and manner. Tho grand-drc, whose
sword is montioned in tho poems, was
Colonel HoWO, who was appointed a member of L'if',yotto's stall because of his
and   that accounts

CHAPTER IX.
THAT MISS WILLIAMS AGAIN.
"Then ia the diuner at Miss Talbot's
home!" asked John, -puzzled.
" You will Bee her there."
"But I hope Z may know whose house 1
am going to?"
"To yoar cousin's. To Ur. NeviH'a.
Jessica Novill ia a great friend of mine."
"Alias Williams, I really regret very
much that I did not know thia aooner. Of
course, you wero not aware, but thero are
circumstances which make it peculiarly
awkward for me to meet Miaa Novill.''
"Oh we knuw all about that. Jessioa haa
told us. Hut don't bo clarmed. Mr.
Nevill and Jossica know you aro coming, and are delighted, I assure you.
And it's your ouly chanoo of seeing
Talbot. Besides, it's too late to
turn back now. Would you loave them
thirteen to dinner V I do assure you it is
all right," said Flora, alarmed, for John
showed serious symptoms of stopping the
carriage and escaping. There seemed to
him a horrible indelicacy in thus I'nding
Miss Talbot under the very oyes of Jessica
Nevill. However, escape thero war none.
They wero arrived ami that sharp-tongued
Flora waa saying " Only cowatda run, Captain Farquhar ; and Knglishmen never lie*
tray sirprise. Mother and I particularly
hopo you'll remember that."
At this moment- John found his hand
warmly graspod hy his cousin, the heiress's
father, who was talking away to him most
cordially, though tho young man, his heart
thumping liko a schoolboy's, suarotly heard
one single word he was saying.
"My daughter has a had cough," said Mr,
Nevill, passing his arm throughniBkinsman's
affectionately. "She does not look well tonight Como aad let mc introduce you. Jessioa, my dear " a littio impatiently, for
Jessica was covering her confusion by an
unneoossarity prolongod and offusivo greet*
log of Mrs. Williams and Flora. Aa for
John, he was in no hurry, for he was look-
inn all about the room for Talbot, and had
no eyes to spare for mero Jessica Nevill,
Until the young hostess ruised her head
at last from Floras shoulder, and advanced
with an air of desperation towards her
cousin. Aud lo! John found her tits very
darling of his search���found her in his
cousin herself, in tho hostess, the heiress,
Jessica Nevill.
The room swain round for John Farquhar,
and he did not know if ho stood on his
head or heels. Ho heard Flora langh, and
he saw Mr. Nevill standing by Biniling,
and he knew Jessica! and a(*w *���������������*' Bne waa
looking at him, and that in her eyes���large,
wan, troubled eyea���was the same wist-
fulness that he had seen there on the
night of his mother's death, when she
had asked to share hia watch, and ho
had not dared to Bpeak to her because
he loved her ao, John aaw all this as
in a dream, but he had not the faintest
idea what ho waa saying or doing him*
self, and after a minute he was swept away
in a procession to tho dining-room under
charge of an elderly woman named Snow,
who planted him at a table very far away
from tho hostess, anil talked to him diligently all through many courses till aho
gave him up as a hopeless dummy of a
blockhead.
John never knew how ho got through
that dinner ; and aa for Jeaaica, ahe got
whiter and whiter and whiter, till Flora
begun to thick her comedy an error, and to
feel that the sick headacho had for once
arrived in good earnest, though most inop-
Alter dinner Misa Nevill  dis*
in     the   moonlight,    till  it    was  quite
too late to reappear in tho drawing-roam.
Before the party broke up, Flot a resolved
to find out what had happened ; and Bhe
slipped off to her frieud's room, and found

and quite reidy to talk. And after Flora
had gone, Jessica still knelt on by hor window, till the last carriage had driven away,
and tho hous* was very quiet, and the
lamps of festivity were all put out. But
all tho while conversation was going on in
hei father's room below ; and Jessica recognized John's voice, and knew that he was
there still. At last sho heard hia foot in
the pasaage, not going to the hall door hut
disappearing into enc of the snare rooms.
And thon Mr. Nevill, candle in hand, came
upstairs to bed, an I went into his dress*
ing room and shut the door.
Then up jumped Jessica, still In her
whito dreaa, with the string of pearls in
her hair ; and she fleeted along tho lobby,
and burst the door open, and Bung herself
into her father's arms.
Oh, papa, dear, dear papa I Haa John
told you everything 1"
Mr. Nevill unlaced lior strangling clasp,
and seated her in his armchair, and stroked
hor cheek. "My dear Joss," he mud
gently, " if yon had told mi the facta long
ago, you would have spared yoursolf a great
dual of needless distress."
' Oh uo, papa 1" criod Jessica ; " it has
all turned out most beautifully. We haven't
the least objection now to marrying each
other, papa. And I shall be so glad, please
papa, if you will ba fond of ino again, as
you were beforo I get the money ; and���
and the eough at Tangier," ended Jesaica,
blushing aud laughing, and gay as her old
self.
Well, she married John Farquhar in the
autumn, and every one aaid they made a
very pretty couple. But do you want to
know tho sequel to tho atory!
Mr. Nevill, after hia daughter's wedding,
lived by himself for a full year, and was so
lonely and miserable that every one aaid he
waa quite certain to marry again. Humor
said also that Misa Snow was prepared to
accept him. But Mr. Nevill, whose wife had
died at twenty-live, and whose daughter had
deserted himatnineteon.kuewnothing about
elderly ladies, and was not particularly
fond of them. I fear it ran in the family,
that espousing of women thirty years too
young. Old John Farquhar had done it;
and instead of taking warning, Mr. Novill
went and followed his example.
He married that Miss Williams.���[Blackwood's Magazine.
appeared altogether. And the guests said,
������Poor child ahe is obviously ill,and no doubt
has slipped away to her bed,"
But they wero all totally mistaken. Jessica hnd no headuche whatever, and was
sitting quite comfortably on a bench in
lhe garden, with her cousin, John Farquhar.
He had invited her out thero alone
to tell hor, of course, all about his
engagement to Flora ; and Jesaica took
her courage in both handa, and stepped out
with him when no one was looking. And
thoro they sat hidden among the treea; uud
the moon shone through tho branches, so
that they could jnstsee each ottici as they
talked���he looked quite content and smif-
ing and happy, and sho with the wild eyes
and forcod cheerfulness of agitated heroism.
"Then it waa Jossica all the time 1*' said
John, with gentle reproach,
"iHdn't you know ? Didn't she tell you
Didn't Mra. Farquhar tell you? I told her.'
"My mother? Jessica, how glad I am to
think my dear mother knew I Hut no, no
one told me. I had no idea till to-night���
till I saw you.
Jessica swallowed a aob, "Oh, do for
give me I I only meant it for fun. I want
cd to sea you ao���to got to know you,'
she pleaded, in her agitation saying all tho
things she had meant not to say.
"What can I possibly havo "to forgive
said John, and paused for u fow minute**,
watching hor and smiling.
" Let me tell you a little about myself,"
he said presently; "may I* though tho story
ia not entirely flattering to either of us.
Listen, Jessioa." Then he began; "When
tbe wish was expressed that wo should marry, I knew nothing about lovo���nothing, I
was a good deal perplexed just then, Jessi-
oi, and hardly, know what 1 was doing.
But, as you remember, I did oiler myself to
you, and you accepted me out of sheer generosity."
" Oh no," criod Jesaica; " I didn't want
to marry you at all I I wasn't gonerous. It
was all papa's doing.*'
"How could you have wanted to marry
me ?" cried John indignantly. " I was a
shabby, mercenary w etch. The whole
matter was a blunder. It was worse than
a blunder���it waa a crime. I didn't liko it
at the time���that much I can aay for myself. Hut Jessica, what waked mo up, what
showed mo that the thing couldn't and
shouldn't be dono, was that 1 full in love,"
" I know that!"
" Did you know it?" Again he paused
aud looked at her, hut .lor-sioa'a oyes were
lined on a gap in the live i, and she wouldn't
see hla smile, " There came aome ono Into
my lifo quite different from all 1 had i-non

I saw her-on the Herciilei��� ntul every
day I lot/oil her more, and always more.
Sometimes I fancied���perhaps I was wrong

sho Hut, Jesaica, I wus engaged to Miss
Novill. Think 1 1 wiy. engaged to Miss
Nevill, and not a word could I say to that
othor. Then I wrote to you- -to Miss No*
vill���and told her I couldn't do her the
wrong of murryiiig her when my heart was
elsewhere. It is a very confusing story
Jessi.-n; can you follow it? I wanted to
woo my darling? and to win her 1 was
ready to give up anything. But I waa
rather too bold, wasn't I? I hive hardly
a sixpence in tlio world, and yet I havo
found her out; and, beggar aa I am, my
* prayer to her now Is to come un-1 share my
sixpence. It ia better than riches, Isn't it!
Jessica? Love and a Bixpiuce 1 Love,

" Yes," Baid Jossica bravely, "You aro
right. But ahe ia not poor.' You will be
quite rich enough, John. "
" Never mind the riches; all I want is
her dear self. Will sho come to ine ?
Will she forgive all and come to me? "
"Oh, how oan   I  tell?"  said  Jessica,
pinching her finger*.    " Yea, I Imagine so.
Let me go, and I will send her to you now.':
" Who?" exclaimed John, bewildered.
" Flora! Oh, don't say it is not my dear

put his arm round tho trembling girl and

" Oh ! " tuid Jesaica.

the lair closed thousands of idlo men emerged from somewhere ���-sprang up from
under tho granite streets, it seemed ; poured into thu city from neighboring towna on
the aouth, north, weal, and cast. Theae men
had no place to sleep, nothing to out. In
sheer humanity the City Hall waa given up
lo them, and night after night, since the
middlo of November, thc great corridors ol
tho building ami its stairways of iron and
stone were turned into dormitories���hard
bods, but warm ones, at least. The homeless, the hungry, oried aloud, and the peace
of the city was disturbed. The churches
discussed the advisability of throwing open
their edifices to those who had not whereon
*o lay their heads, but this movement was
abandoned. Why, uo ono seemed to know.
Then a crank in a suburban town issued a
printod circular calling for twelve thousand
armed unemployed men to meet at a certain
hour at the Columbus Monument, go up
into the city and take what they thought
they wanted.
This odd and highly impracticable suggestion crystallized the movement for the
relief of the poor, aud a general committee
of thetieh men, called the Central Relief
Association, was formed. The churches and
their representatives in tho ministry got
together, and set to work at onco in organizing societies and committees for investigation and relief. At that time tho City Hall
was the public dormitory, and a visit there
at night was like a walk through a potter's
Held of unburled dead. The air nf tho main
corridors became curruptand has not yet
been purified, although the lodgers were
forbidden to enter a fortnight ago. The
Central lteliof Association worked hard,and
aoon had a great aoup-kitcken on the Lake
Front at the foot of Randolph Street. Here
are fed daily about four thousand persons.
The establishment doos not undertake to
lodge the pool, but it feeda them. No restrictions nre placed on the applicant. He
may fill himself there onco, twice, or thrice
a day as he wishes. And its Urea aro burning incessantly. In olher parts of the city
are seven establishments in which the needy
are fed and lodgod. All the outlying feeding stations have dormitories attached and
the work is growing.

Storage cells were set up ina barn about i)0

this means the library was filled with a

that the proposed Slmplon tunnel is to be

The Might Air Injurious-
An extraordinary fallacy is the dread of
night air. What air cau we breath e st
night but night air? The choice is between
pure night air from without and foul air
from within. Most people prefer the latter
���an noaocountablo choice. What will
they say if it is proved to bo true that fully
one-half of all the diseases wc Buffer from
ate occasioned by people sleeping with their
windows shut? A pat tly open window,
most nights In tho year, oan never hurt ouy
one. In great cities night air is often thu
best and purest to be had in tv.ci*iy-four
hours. The absence of smoke, tho quiet,
all tend to make night the best time for
airing the patient. Oue of our highest
medical authorities on consumption and
climate told me that the nir of inrgc cities
is never to good as after ten o'clock at night.
Always air your room then from tho outside, if possible. Windows are made to
open, doors are made lo shut���a truth
which seems extremely dillicutt of comprehension. Evory room must be aired from
without, every passage from within.

hence sleeping ou tho left side soon after

Dyspepsia means a dilliculty in preparing the food eaten so that the nutriment
can be extracted from it to supply the
wants ot the system.
If food is eaten rapidly, it ia swallowed
Gen-1 '������ birgo pieces and theae are dissolved from
without inwards by the juices of tbe atom-
nch, as a lump of ice in a glass of water is
dissolved from without inwards.
But this is a slow process, and if protracted beyond four or five hours, the food
begins to ferment, to sour, causing belch*
ing, weight or heaviness at the pit of the
stomach, sourness and a variety ut other
symptoms with which dyspeptics aro very
familiar.
One of the causes then of dyspepsia is
eating too fast. If a person eats tuo much,
the food remains in thu stomach undigested, unmelteil, undissolved, because there ia
nut enough gastric juice to reilucti it to the
proper condiditinn for yielding its nutriment ; as so much ieo may bo put in
a glass of water that after awhile
it ceases to melt, and the food
thus remaining unchanged for an unnatural time, it begins to sour as before, because
the person haa been eating too much, A
man may have dyspepsia for thc want of a
sufficient amount uf gastric juice to digest
the food, although a very little fowl may
have lieen eaten ; hence the frequent complaint, "It makes nu difference whather 1
oat much or tittle ; tho smallest quantity
of anything distresses me." Such a person
hasdyflpopsia in an aggravated form, from
having had it for a long time. The limited
supply of gastric juice ia tho result of poor
or bad blood.
All tho blood of a dyapeptic in had hecauBo
tho food is imperfectly digested and tho
blood which it makes ia imperfect, hence
contains but a small amount of the element a
which compose tho gastric juice. The alwayB successful remedy is to live out of door s
tight and day, exercising until a very little
tired ; then rest, exercise again until vory
hungry, until hungry enough to feel that
plain bread and butter taste dcliciously ;
take a very amall amouiit, such us by observation causes no discomfort whatever;
thon go on as before until very hungry
again, take a little frosh meat ut tho next
meal and a bit of bread crust; make tho
next or third meal of the day of berries,
grapes, fruit or melons.
Persevering in this way, almost any dyspeptic will find himself getting better and
better overy day, because every breath of
out-dour air taken relieves the blood of
some of its impurities, and every step,
every motion of the hand or arm carries
off out of the system, through the pnreH
of tho skin or otherwise n greater or
less number of impure blood atoms; tbo
blood being thus relieved of moro of its
impurities.makes a better quality of gastric
juice; this in turn digests tho food more
thoroughly, imparting mere strength, giving a more vigorous appetite ami tha mau
is getting woll before lie knows It. Thu
gizzard or stomach of a chicken when opened
is found tu contain grains of corn or wheat
and small pebbles, Tho action of the inns*
oles of the gizzard is to keep the grains of
corn and sand in aconstantcirculnr motion,
causing attrition, tho sand boing harder
than the grains; hence the action js a kind
of grindar; so with tho human stomach, lu
dyspepsia tho muscles of the stomach aro
too weak to perform thia grinding process
and tho human mill works so slowly that
tho food licgina to decay before it is properly manipulated. All dyspeptics aro
weak; every muscle of tbebodris weak and
those of tho stomach have their corresponding share of debility; but lhey will get
stronger Inevitably by making better blood,
hy giving a better digostjou in tho way
above described, llitiuusness also causes
dyspeptic symptoms.
When a man Is bilious, it means that he
has an excess of bile or a deficiency of it,
which moans tho samo thing essentially,
although it is not known that sueh a lonvt*
ment has over beon expressed iu writing ur
iu print. When a man has yellow jaundice he is biliouain thu proper sense ol the
term, meaning that the bile has rot been
withdrawn from the blood hy the natural
and healthy action of the liver, as shown
by the yollnwiieas of the i-kiii. Tin* blood
ia then so impregnated with bile, which is
uf a yellow color, lhat It tinges (he skin
und whites of tlio eyos. hi thn caso there
is a torpitl liver, n sloepy liver ; [t dors not
act, doea not work. Hul ihu liver may withdraw the liile from the blood und accumulate It in the gall bladder, where it may bo
detained, and as u result, tho discharges
aro of a lightish color that ure attributed to
a deficiency of bile.
Henjo excess ol bile and deficiency both
mean lhat there is too much bib: in thu body
either in the blood or in the gall bladdor.
Hut tho exorciso already referred tu will
purify the blood of any of its unnatural con*
btituents, of evory kind of impurity, whiln
'-nii-ful eating imparts strength to mako
bettor blood, Thur it is seon that whatever may ho its symptoms, that is, tho
feelings, the manifestations to which it rmy
give riBe, the thing to be doue is to get rid
uf the bad blood aud supply a bo'tor in its
place. Tho way to do this is to eniraga in
out-door activities am' so sulect the food as
tu enable tho stomach to net upon it iu such
a manner that it may yield its nutriment,
to the system naturally.���[Hugh S.cvin,

r>l" Lords.
The feeling against ihe the House of
Lords appears lo be gaming in strength,
As at present constituted it represents
lho aristocracy, and only the mure con-
BQrvative portion of that. Ii is opposed
to change, no mnttor what the change
consists of. So long as it can nullify the
action of the Commons, ot what use is
the latter? This is how the people reason, and lhe Lords must yield to some
extent, or the Upper House will be modified in nccordance with more democratic
principles. It is said the (.Hieen is using
her influence to induce thc Lords to a
less conservative course in ihc hope of a*
voiding a conflict which once begun, may
even reach the throne, not indeed, to 0-
verturn it, but possibly to deprive 11 of
many things she would prefer should remain untouched.
It were better if the conflict could be
delayed, as what comes slowly is more
apt to come wisely. Hut ultimately, and
before many years, thc Lords will cease
to be an hereditary body, and become ap
pointive. Ifthe struggle comes soon it
will be a gigantic one, involving so much
heat and bitterness that a too radical
measure may be adopted. Why the
peers should be so stubborn about the
Employers' Liability bill passes compre-
heruuon. It is their action in amending
this bill, destroying to some extent, a-
least, the purpose for whic it was intend*
ed, that causes so much feeling. Of
course it must be admitted lhat they
have kept strictly ��i hin their constituti
onal rights, nevertheless if in doing so
tliey block, not merely lhe Home Rule
bill, about which Englishmen are so
much divided, but also many others
which hive passed the Commons, they
will create a siorm of opposition which is
in danger of sleeping all before t
Worse than all llie struggle would be diverted bom legislative measures to a
right ag.iinst the peers, and if the government should prove victorious ibey
-hen wou'd be able to pass such measures as they pleased without the salutary
check which the House of Lords may
properly offer to hasty or ill timed mc; ���
ures. In spite of all obstruction, in lhe
eiui the people will have their will crystalled into law. This is right, but tt
should b-t the popular will, formed after
fair discussion, and full time for consider
ation. The course of event, lot* the next
few weeks will be watched with interest.
Thc peers mav moderate their action,
and thus escape the danger, but if
not, wc may expect some very decided
action, on the part of llto government
and thut soon. At any time parliament
may be dissolved and an appeal made lo
Ihe people. Lord Salisbury m thai event
will iv-l be able to confine the issue lo
tbe Home Rule Hill. That will be pushed
aside and thc battle cry will be��� Down
wiih ihe House of Lords! In this attack the Conservatives will he put on the
defensive. Thc Hie will be all a'nng thc
line of bills rejected, or amended by the
peers, and lhe advocates of any of lhe
measures ��ill unite to swell the ranks of
lhe assaulting army. Prejudice, passion
and caste a-, well .is patriotism will he elements in such tt contest! but when the
smoke has cleared away, the nation, wc
trust and believe, will emerge trom the
snuggle, unshorn ol any e'emem of real
greatness, and that what is best will be
accomplished. J
