Dear lift. Editor:
I beg to offer yon my
humble apology for my long delay in writ,
ing you. I am happy to state that we are
well and that thu mild din-ate hu made a
marked improvement in Mn Frater'a health
The oity of San Pedro ia about MO milea
south of Han Francisco and about i-JO from
Loi Anglos. It haa two lines of railway
rnnning into it, has a splendid harbor aud
with the exception of 8u Diego ie the
largest ihipping portsouth of Sun Francisco.
The State of California, in ronnd numbers
la about one thousand miles in length aud
comprises an area of about 160,000 aquare
miles. Southern California embraces aa
area of about 40,000 square milea and is
bounded on the east by the atate of Nevada
and Colorado River and on the weat by the
Pacific Ocean.
A itraugtr beholding the landscape of
Southern California from aome lofty eminence for the first time would imagine that
it was a vast treeless plain, hemmed in lw-
tween the wide ocean on one aide and a
range of bald and jagged mountains from
ten to fourteen thouaand foet high, on the
other. On a closer survey hs wonld ob*
serve tbat thia seeming barren landscape ia
divided into ranches without fences, and
white-washed barns and ont buildings
glittering in the aunahine; thriving towns of
considerable importance only a few miles
apart, here and there orchards, small and
large, bearing all manner of traits, and the
horizontal lines of blue amoke Scattered over
tbe landscape, betokening the numerous
lines of railways that intersect the country
in every direction.
The population of Southern California ia
ahout 200,000 and ao rapidly hu this part
of the world grown of late that it has more
than trebled within the lut ten yeara.
Notwithstanding this rapid increase there is
room enough here for twenty timea the present number of inhabitants.
One great peculiarity of this oountry ia ita
climaie: It ia drier, more annny, and leas
windy here than the northern part of the
state. There are only two aeaaons of the
yeat in thia locality, the wet and dry season.
The rainy season is the pleasantest time of
tbe year. The first shower generally comes
ahout the end of October. It sometines
rains steady for two or three daya like yoar
own --south casters," and is usually followed by one or two weeka of sonny skies when
all nature aeema to smile and rejoice.
Spring begins about November when the
welcome rains begin to decern!. Then the
bare brown hills doff their rusty summer
garh and begin to array themselves with a
mantle of vivid green, aoon followed witb
a coat of many colors���a rare profusion of
wild flowers of every aort peculiar to semi-
tropical olimate. The average annual rain
fall ia about 16 inches* tbat amount always
insures a good crop and betokens a bountiful harvest, Laat season waa what ia term-
ad a "dry year." Only 4ft inches of rain
fell here during tbe last eighteen months;
and we do not Took for another drop for
three months longer. Farmers whose main
crop consisted of wheat or barley have bad
a poor year in oonsequenoe.
We have about 300 sunny daya in the
year. Frost and anow and ice are almost as
rare here aa orange trees in tbe Comox Valley except snow upon the mountian tops
60 miles away.
The mean average temperature for January ia 55 and July 70. Still it is hot enough
here sometimes: yon can atand it at the
sea aide, but away inlaud in the plaiua and
vullies the tbremometer mounts up from
100s to 115* or 120*. Owing to tbe peon-
liar dryness of the atmosphere, snn stroke is
almost unknown, and the aame clothing ia
worn by most people all the year round.
It U alwaya cool in the shade. The nights
are alwaya cool, Yuu catch oold very
easily and it sticks to you like pine gum.
The trade wind blowa inland from tbe ocean
with daily regularity, sometimes a little
stronger than is pleasant for delicate people.
Occasionally we nave a blizzard of sand;
may yon never experience one. Occasionally
we have an earthquake: tbey are not nice,
make yen feel sick at the stomach and what
is worse they make yon feel small, and
anxious to know���what next!

ia not paradise���no lack of dnst���of cranks

Undoubtedly our all-year-round climate
is perhapa the beat in the world for invalids
and old people, bnt for persons of ordinary
health it is not so beneficial: it is apt to
create lassitude and langour, and make them

You can get any climate yon please here
in one days travel. On a winter's day yon
may partake sf breakfast at the seaside after
having a dip in the ocean, dine amid the
aweet scented heavily laden orange groves
and sup amid snow fields of the
Sierra. Any one of a consumptive
tendency���if they can afford it-

many of them in the lut stages of the
diseaoe, in that locality 78 were cured, 0
became worse, 8 no apparent change effect*
ed and 59 died.
The trouble ia that patients try every
possible remedy at home and when given up
by their physicians, u a lut resource, rush
off to California, like the late Mr. 1 [ether*

Bad Air Makes Bad Milk.
A Correspondent writes t���In order t
show the influence of foul odors in thu ai
upon milk, I will recount an experience of
mme that may be of service to some rial
leaden*. It was iu my early experience aa
a ehee-v��� lusUicr.
Events had paaaed off smoothly at the
faotory until In .June, wheu I began to be
bnthered with tainted milk. I soon located
it aa coming from one dairy, and, moreover,
the factory's largest natron, I Informed
bis hired nun of tha damaged condition of
tlie milk, uud sent minute Instructions ami
suggestions io liin master relative to it**
better care ovei night ou the farm, through
��� lie employment of aeration uud oooliug,
fully expecting that tin; lacteal quality
wouldimprove forthwith. Un the contrary,
it got even worse, though I was informed
thai my Instructions had been carried out
1 told my employer thai the milk of
pultun must hi* rejected aH.ij't'ther, an it
wan giving us tainted curds and damaged
���iiuck right along. To ui) surprise my em
ployer,who uas himself uu ohl cheese*
maker, said that it would never do to reject
this patron's milk, he being uu extenslVS
and Influential farmer who would qulokly
take offense,  {Hr-Uuiij/t! Home rival   la Lory,
and seriously cripple the profits of our in*
stituti'in.   [wasfurther informed that it
hud always been lhe custom to accent,
UUdei ni.! i protest, BUOh milk ut [mtum--*
thereabout, aud the maker was expected
to do hi-J heat to alter its quality for the
better during the making process.
Strange ua it may seem to the Well-informed, -ikij-i-c-imivc, dairyman, the above
idea has taken tmcli root iu .-nine eastern
dniry communities that us u luw nf cur to in
it mil handicaps factory management. To
the outsider it aeema preposterous that a
dairyman should suppose he could foiathad
it*iik upou u manufacturer to lhe detriment
of ail Ins neighbors in the associated system,
bin it cornea simply from alack of know*
li i.i'.; of what is hail milk ami of Its always
disastrous reuults iu cheese making aud
hm ter production.
lu the instance mentioned, rather than
submit to a custom tha*. was supposed to
wait till the milk quality righted iiself.sub-
ject to patient admonitions from the maker,
i determined to visit the farm and look for
ihe source of trouble, 1 found that they
bad been planting corn and fertilizing it in
tbe hill wilh stable dung und night soil.
The heapB of manure had beeu only partially removed, ahd from the open pits fn whioh
there were the dead carcasses of several
lambs ami pigs, aroBn a sickening stenali
that could he smelled ten rods oil'. Half
way betweeu the burnyard and where the
privy vault had been opened stood the milk
wagon, ou which thc cans of milk rested
during tiie night, i talked earnestly with
this dairyman about tho serious trouble that
lui mill' was caiifting, und requested him tn
remove bis milk wagon out of range of bad
odors. He did so, and tho next morning
fits milk was perfectly pure uud continued
ko during the rest of the summer. After
seeing the oondition of things about his premises, I understood why aeration of the
milk in that tainted utmosphere had augmented rather than helped the evil,
In connection with the above instance I
would say thut one uot practically connected
with cheese or butter making has but a
faint idea ofthe misconceptions of what
constitutes a desirable milk quantity, as
entertained by a vast number of dairymen.
To u conscientious maker whose skill is
compromised by linn lack uf co-operation
mi tlie farm, lite situation in particularly
exasperating. 1 often think that cheese
and butter makers ure in belter position tn
do pruciicdl reform work among those
dairymen who need it, than nre any other
class, For eight month.-i in tlio year the
good and had methods of every dairy farm
in their jurisdiction, as Indexed by the milk
quality from each, passes before them.
They know just where tho fault lies with
A, 11 uud 0, and can often set him aright
moro effectually thun could tlm argument of
an institute worker in speaking iu a general
way tii a general audience.
1 think that it fa a must unsatisfactory
plan for makers to wait for Homebody eluo
to come along and spur up their delinquent
patrons to better methods. Kvery maker
should hustle for himself in this matter and
the result will be hoiiib of the best reform
ilairy work ever inaugurated.

"A merciful man is merciful to his

applying some greasy substance which will
keep the flies olf from them. Prof. Sling*

classes of lemedies are practicable; pre*

keeping ot) the fly ; destructive, by destroying the insect in its larval or adult
condition. The Ily may be kept awuy

to which a little carbolic acid has been
added as a healiag agent, is the must highly
recommended ; common axlu-greese, tallow, kerosene emulsion, or sheep dip muy
be used to good advantage. The substance
may be applied with u sponge or with u
fapray. Uno thorough application is ofteu
sufficient,hut as its repelling power usually
lasts only live or six days, it may be necessary to repeat the application, Among

the United .States to lind out, not so much
which side was right and which wrong in
the present strike, but how it may escape
the agony nf another. The close of this
strike does uot mark uny progress. Tho
questions between labor and capital may
slid besettledln tho same primitive fashion,
Labor may strike wheu it is uot satisfied,
other labor may strike when it sympathises.

Sponsible to lhe law for bringing about a
strike, and once a strike is well on unlaw*
ful acts easily follow. The United States
has no lack ol reason for taking stopt
prevent the recurrence of such calamities as
strikes bave brought to it several times
this year. A couutry whose development
is one of the marvuU of creditquite as muoh
as of enterprise cannot afford such labor
conflicts. The Stock Kxchangti is the baro.
meter of contidenec.and every strike causes
a shrinkage in prices aud decline iu foreign
business. Tho United States has more interest in discovering a speedy solution of
tbe question between capital and labor
than other countries, and mainly for tho
reason that it is so great a debtor nation.
That a solution is not obvious does not
prove that it is impossible. To-day people
woutler why England was so long finding
out so .simple, self-evident a thing aa the
principle of responsible government. Vote
by ballot came late, but it should have lieen
stumbled ou long ago, Iu tbe same way it
may he that the key to the settle,
mem. of quest ions between capital and labor
may lie lying under our noses. To say that
the .State should not interfere between
capital und labor because wages should he

scarcely disposes of the question, because
that is a theory und strikes are a condition.
An artlfidal means of preventing strikes
might be hit upon that would compensate
both sides for whatever they would have to
give up of their natural rights. If civilized
men hud clung to their natural rights there
would have been no society to-day. They
gave up those rights for others ot far greater value. Natural rights depended on the
puny strength of eaoh individual, and
civilized men gave them up for rights upheld and secured to eaoh by the community.
Capital, labor, the whole community, have
much to lose from the present mode of
settling industrial differences. For its own
good the United States will be apt to look
about for some other mode, whioh may be
arbitrary in its beginnings, but which will
do fairly by every bod* concerned and ensure
the Bafety of property. A tribunal to
wlibit may be referred all differences betweeu capital and labor has already been

takes them for granted without a thought,
It even troubles him to have them called in

He has not earned them by any effort, nor

loyalty to truth that makes him cling to
them. It is merely adherence to a habit of
thought which he has contracted. It will

The evidence that Ontario is rich, im*
menaely rich, iu all economic minerals ex
cept coal is continually accumulating. This
wealth iB invariably adjacent to the great
lakes, or directly on the lines of railway,
u-id partioularly convenient, in facilities for
handling ami shipment. Yet, strange to
say, there are few, if any, that are worked
to anything liko their capacity of production, writes   Mr.   J, A.  Radford   iu The
We but imperfectly understand our great
resources, for our area is enormous, and
there are vast tracts of land that remain to
be prospected| especially lu the north,
seldom trod by white men, whu are uot
either trappers or hunters, men whose
knowledge of tniuerals or indications (
tbem is decidedly meagre. Our ex per
mental prospecting and examinations are
very incomplete aud supet lieial, but enough
has been done in the region north of Superior
ami Huron, once believed to bu a dusolato
and worthless waste of rock and muskeg,
to show that it fa possessed of the richest
minerals iu the province.
Ontario's situation at present suggests a
comparison with our cousins across the border, and when we ohserve the rapid increase
of mineral develnputeut there, the great
stream of capital that ia continually pouring iuto their mining districts, and the
transformation of regioua but lately accessible into habitable places and scenes of
home life aud industrial activity, the conclusion seems apparent that if Ontario could
succeed iu directing some of her wealth,
energy and enterprise iuto some of her economic mineral locations, results of a like
tendency would inevitably accrue.
and a compliment at the same time to us
that nmre than half the capital now invested in mines and mining property in Ontario is und ������������ the control of Americans, and
we nui.it open our eyes to this fact.
One of the main reasons why some Canadian owners have ceased woi king their
claims is not that they are not workable,
but rather that thoir knowledge of improved methods and processes ia not equal
to the requirements of economic production
with scant capital and primitive ideas.
This evidence leads one to conclude that
the American investments are managed by
competent and experienced men of ability,
who direct the operations under their control with intelligence and despatch. Great
mining industries awe their development,
growth, success, and prosperity to the
amalgamation of practical and scientific
methods, modern plant, adequate capital,
cheap facilities for transportation and
business capabilities.   There are

Iinke and Duchess of York reposes is a
gift from the Queen, and bears au inscription to the effect that it was made in 1840
for the l'rincsaa Royal, was used fnr all Her
Majesty's children, aud was given by tho
Queen to the Duchess of York in 1HBI. The;
Queen commissioned the firm of Kdmnnds
.V Orr, Wignmre street, to fit it up wiih
pure white satin and lloniton lace, and, as
he buBsinetto is itself in white wood, thore
s no scrap of color about it. The Queen
has alsn given a second cradlo to tho Dilations, made of mahogany, inlaid with fine
gilding. This ia fitted up with brocade in
delicately pale tones of color. The bedding
provided for both cradles is of the softest
and lightest description. The sheets are of
Irish lawn bordered witb Valenciennes lace
and the blankets are of Pyreneau wool, very
white, and weighing very little, the texture
more nearly resembling eiderdown than
flannel. Two small eiderdown quilts have
lieen provided for the baby's use, one white
and one pale pink. The Queen has also
given the little Prince several rubes, including onoof fine Irish lawn and lace, and
a handsome cloak and hood of Zibeltno eilk.
Three small plumes in the hood suggest the
Prince nf Wales' feathers. Such articles as
theae, for the children of the wealthy, were
some years ago almost invariably made of
French cambric, but of late years the

An Cuglueer Haves Ills Train by Bnutilux
HI Full ftiH-eri Over n 4'��vt- In.
Had it not been for the cool bead aud
ready hand of Frederick Titus, engineer of
tlm Lehigh Valley freight engine, No. 3G0,
himself, his crew of six men, the engine and
four freight cars would now be lying at the
bottom of an old mine hole, Titus the
other day found himself in a predicament
bo terrible that were he to experience it
agaio, he says, he Ib afraid his nerve would
fail. Titus was at the lever of the big
engine as she rattled down the heavy grade
on a long siding runuiug towa rd Miners
Mills, a small town near Wilkeaberre*
Penu. He was pulling four empty freight
cars and going at a speed of twenty miles
a,n hour. The track was wet from an early
rain, and the big driving wheels of the engine alipped on the rails. Titus kept a
sharp lookout ahead for danger, and stood
ready to whistle down brakes at any moment.
Suddenly, as ho glanced down the track
his attention was attracted by adistuib-
ance in the roadbed, only a few hundred
feet ahead. He was surprised to see large
holes appear, and as he looked the entire
surface for a distance of several feet sank
out of sight, and the edges of ono side of
the hole continued to crumble. He immediately realized what had happened.
The place was honeycombed by old mine
workings, and one of the gangways, bun*
dreds of feet below, had fallen in, taking
down the surface witb it. The rails and
ties alone remained straight and symmetrical,and the hole was all the time growing larger.
In less time than it has taken to write
one of these lines, all this passed through
the mind ofthe engineer, and aa it did he
acted, intuitively, perhaps, for he Baid
utter* ard he had no time to think. Grasp*
ing tho throttle he threw it open,-putting
on a full head of steam, at the same time
opening the sand tube to give the wheels
a firm bold. The big engine sprang for*
ward like a apinter and gaining speed
with every inch of advance, shot across
Lhe chasm swiftly and safely, but none too
soon, for barely had the last car oleared
the edge when the rails and ties fell with
a crash into the big hole.
After the train has been brought to a
standstill the crew hurried back to the
Bcene. The hole by this time was fully
thirty feet aaross, and the bottom could
not be seen. Titus said that he knew
there was no room on the down grade
to stop the train before it reaohed the
cave in, and he felt the only safety waa
in skimmimg across. A large force of
men are at work repairing the damage.

Mrs, Mary Olmstead, a highly respected
and well known lady residing south of the
village of Whefttley,eight miles from Learn-
ingtou, has beeu the subject of an experience that has created not & little wonder,
and has excited so much comment in tho
vicinity of the lady's home that the Post
believes it will prove of general interest.
Proceeding to the handsome farm residence, we were ushered into a room where
sat the genial old lady. Upou enquiry ahe
informed us that she was in her eightieth
year, and for one of her years she is the
picture of health. She expressed her readiness to make public the particulars of her
Buttering aud cure, stating that while sho
did uot care to figure prominently in the
newspapers, yet if her testimony would
relieve othets suttering as nhe had done,ahe
would forego any scruples iu the matter.
She than related the story of nor case ua
follows: "About six years ago 1 was
stricken with sciatica rheumatism, which
tirst nude its unpearanoo in my left
knee, but gradually took possession of all
my limbs. Within three munthi after its
first appearance I was unable to leave my
bod, and duy und night suffered the most
excruciating pain. My limbs wore swolh
io more than twice their natural si/.e, and
draw n nut of ull natural shape. My feel
weie also badly swollen, und my right arm
wus in the shape of a aemi-circio. For throe
long years 1 antlered in this manner, being
unable to put a foot to the floor, the only
way I could move around was by beiug
wheeled in a chair. My appetite gradually
lett ine until 1 had no desire or relish for
food of any kin*i, and 1 got very thin and
weak, During all this time I kept doctoring with the medical practitioners of the
neighborhood, and iiwallowed gallons of
medioine which cast my husband much
money, but 1 um unable to say that I received any benefit from this medicine. My
agony kept iucreasini/ and my system grow
ing weaker, till many linns death vould
have been a welcome relief to my sufferings. After reading in the newspapers
about tho many cures effected by the
use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, I decided
to try tbem. My caBe was u stubborn
one, and it was not until I had
taken half a dozen boxes of the pills that I
began to feel au improvement. 1 continued
taking the pills, however, aud never had a
relapse, and to-day I am as hearty and
healthy as I was before the rheumatism
came on. I am now able to knit and sew
aa fast as any young person, whilo for years
my fingers were as still' aB needles. 1 owe
my recovery entirely to Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, aud will always have a good word to
say for them.

We accordingly returned to Paris, where
I loitered a few days to purchase necklaces;
and then, aftor an affectionate farewell to
Kih.-I, found myself once again en route for
Salchester, with the rosea firmly established
in my cheeks.
I think at Salchester they were glad to
aee me back. I oan quite understand that,
n some uncertainly defined way, I was a
change for them. Anyhow, I was most
cordially welcomed. I re-engaged tny little
maid, laid in a freih stock of wine, and
atarted once more the washing basket antl
the broken-kneed pony.
Curiosity had ceased about me. I waa a
fait accompli, and /ery much by way of
fossilizing down into suoh an institution,
iltat were the actually authentic details of
y life to have been published In a broad
Bet, they wonld have lound no credence
he sacred limits of the Close.
v The life was very dull, of coarse; but
hat would you have?
It woe now about the time of lhe apring
equinox, and we were all looking forward
to May, when an eventocourred which very
much altered the whole course of my life so
far as it had been hitherto arranged.
There was a certain Minor Canon, the
Reverend Mr. Sebastian Meadowsweet,
who, one morning after infinite blushes and
with considerable gasping and choking as
of a newly-landed fish, did me the honor to
ley himself morally and physically at my
feet, and to beg that I would hind him to
my chariot wheels forever.
I had a great mind to humor him Let
ine give thu points iu his favor. He had
been at Winchester and at Rallinl ; He was
tall, extremely good-looking, and not without claim* to lie considered an athlete ; he
had an exquisite tenor voice, and he wu as
loyal and as ajmple as Hir Galahad himself;
odd to this that he was perhaps a few
months���say a couple of years���older than
Ho far, then, he was certainly eligible, If
not, indeed, entirely desirable. Betides, *
an has her oapnoes, 1 womreally liked the
man, and I felt that with my mouey and
my help generally, he would soon lie some*
thing more than a Minor Canon.
His defeats were not positive ; they were
only due to youth und inexperience. His
merits were very sterling, and far out-
Weighed them. Could any woman act
otherwise than I did under all the circumstances T I resolved tu accept him ��� and I
did, stipulating only that the marriage
should be deferred for a few months, and
tbat for some time our intention should be
kept a secret from Saloheattir society.
For a week or two we were verv discreet.
I went up to London, saw Nir. (laorge
Wylie, and laid the caae before him, suggesting that it might be worth while to
consult some eminent barrister.
He laughed outright, anil told me it was
a matter of A. B. C. Whether I was
married by banns or by license, my exact
roiitlon as a divorced woman must be made
nown. Concealment of it would vitiate
either license or banns and make tho marriage void, as would also marriage in an
assumed name, whether it was surname or
only Christian.
Lastly he added, lhat any clergyman
could refuse to trarry me, and that clergymen had more thau once declined to perform
the marriage service on lhe ground that
the lady had been divorced, and itut they
would consequently be giving the sanction
of the Church to an act of adultery.
He suggested that we Bhould be married
in London, when I oould qualify myself by
a previous residence al a hotel sufficient to
?ive me a parochial locui standi. But that
could be married under any other name
than that of Miriam Craven was absolutely
out ot the question.
Hii own advice, he added, would be that
I should, without the least reserve or hesitation, tell my intended husband tho truth.
Tie truth muit, sooner or latter, moit certainly oome out, and it would be juat as
well to have it out at the beginning and to
have done with it.
He was extremely sorry that he had no
device of his own to suggest, and for his
own i art he considered the existing state
of the law very infamous; but we muit take
the law, like all other human institutions,
as we find it, and as to ita state oo thia
particular point that ao concerned myaelf
there oould be unfortunately no possible
manner of doubt. The thing had been dis.
cussed and argued over and over again, until there wai simply no more whatever to
be said about it.
For himself he was only confirmed In the
belief ha had always entertained, that the
laity are far more tolerant and Christian
than the clergy, who, wheu tliey once lake
to law, seem to be seized with all thu spirit
of Torquemada in ita very worst form.
Now it is all very wull to talk pleasantly
about Torquemada; hut the terrible question stared me In the facu���what waa I to
Most assuredly I oould not commit per*
jury, or what was next door to It, It was
equally clear that without a gro��* deception I could not get married. The only
thing to do was to take Sebastian into my
confidence and tell him everything. The
idea terrified me, but the thing had to be
I went back to Salchester and for some
weeks lived a life of intolerable torture. I
could not bring myself to tell Mr. Meadowsweet all at onoe. On the other hand I
knew what would be said by everybody
of my delay ; for during my absence, our
engagement had got wind, and I was congratulated by everybody, from the Bishop
ind hia wife down to my landlady.
My position became at last perfectly intolerable, especially as Sebastian began to
urge me to allow him to have the bums
published in the Cathedral,
It woe idle delaying or hoping that anything would occur to alter tha situation, po
one day I screwed up my courage resolutely.
I was expecting Mr. Meadowsweet to call
and take me out for a walk. Some few
minutes before he wai due I made myself
look my best, fortified myself with a liberal
dose ot Eau de Cologne and water, and then
when he arrived, pleaded a bad headache
whioh waa, in faot, the truth, and assured
him that 1 felt unequal to leaving thu house,
whioh was alio strictly true. For I really
do not believe that I had at lhat moment
the strength in me to cross the Cathedral
He was very pleasant and sympathetic
Tea was produced, and at last I found my-
solt taking the fatal plunge.
'There Is something," I said, " whioh I
ought to tell you, aud which, in fact, I
must tell you before we are married,"
"What is it?" lie aaked in a tone of
curiosity, but without the least trace of
" If we are to be married," I aaid, " you
must, I fear, givo up your Minor Canon ry
here, and we must live abroad for a while
at any rate, I have considerable influence,
and if you want pariah work, or clerical
woik of any kind, I believe I could secure
an English living at some watering-place,
or, better atill in the heart of the country.
On that point I can satisfy yon; but we
muat not be married here, and we must not
live here after our marriage.
" I confess I do not understand you," he
Baid with a marked trace of irritation in
his tone, " You are the last woman in the
world whom I should have accused of
whims; and yet this seems to me very like
one, and I muat say a very unreasonable
whim into the bargain."
"It is no whim at all," I answered. " It
ii the moat sober, matter-of-fact common-
sense. I cannot marry you here, because
my real name is not Allen. I have been
hiding here in honest search ot peace and ,
quiet under a name that ia not my own."
That ia unpleasant," he said, "and
certainly at range. It will require explanation, but I rio uot see anything impossible
in it."
You will aee aoon," I answered, "I
changed my name for tha very best ot
reasons. 1 could not have lived hero without doing so. 1 have here, in this portfolio,
all the reports of my own Case, the Case in
which 1 waa concerned, and of which I have
no doubt you read at the timo. It is nnt
so many mouths ago, and it was very fully
reported." And I offered him a little
locked memorandum.book with the reports
of the trial, and with the' comments of the
Press upon my conduct, all moat carefully
"laid in," as book collectors aay, which
mean* neatly cut out, and artistically
pasted down as if they were choice etchings,
" You had better look at it," I continued,
"at once,"
He took the hateful volume, and opened
it hesitatingly. Hia eye caught the title of
the Case In a moment, and f saw his faoe
flush and then turn very pale.
" But what has this to do with you ?" ha
asked, evidently still honing against hope.
Simply this I answered that I am the
Miriam Craven there ipoken of, aud that my
father and Sir Henry Craven are atill alive.
Mr. Sabine wo aid have married me If he had
lived, and every word ha swore to is entirely true, I was aB innocent aB a child ;
but I could not fight the evidence against
me. A good deal of it was true but did not
come to much ; part of it was perjured, but
of that it is now idle to talk. I was an
innocent woman ; before God I awear
He rose to hit feet and laid down the
horrible volume on the table as If the very
touch of it polluted him. Thou,in a choked
voice he began io speak.
"I shall hold your confidence absolutely
sacred," he said, "aud shall not hesitate to
tell everybody, if you will pet mil me to do
io, that you have released me from my
engagement. They may say what tliey
like of me, it mailers nothing, It la for
you, aud for you alone,that I am concerned.
'Whoso marrieth her that ia divorced com*
inittuth adultery.' Behoving lhat aa
fully aud as firmly as I lielieve in
your own innocenue, it makes it unpens.
IbleformetokeeptomyensagRnient. I cannot
and will not break what I believe to be In
vury truth, the Divine law. But I oannot
keep myself from saying that I feel as if you
were my own alitor, and that you will find
a brother in me whenever you need one.
Even if you do not believe me now, you
will, I think, come to believe me as the
years pan by."
I had risen to my feet and I held out my
hand to him. He took it, bent over it,and
klued it
"Good-bye," he said,
"Good-bye," I answered, and the door
closed behind him.
I heard him descend the stairs, and I
could see from the window that instead of
turning towards the Cathedral, he strode
away in the direction of the main road leading into the open oountry, and that he
avoided the footpath.
I loved the man for tho first time ; but I
tbink my time for tears had pasBed. I
made my way to my bed-room, threw myself down on my bed, and buried my head
in the pillow.-*.
Mr. Meadowsweot kept his word faithfully ; and I need not say that I for my part
kept silence as to what had takeu place between ub, and met all attempts to draw me
out on the subjeot with what, for those
who Im 1 sufficient intelligence, was a strong
hint that my own matters were my own
business and uot theirs.
Evidently there couldjh&ve been no serious
quarrel; for Mr, Meadowsweet and I remained on friendly although not  intimate
terms, never passing each other in the
atreet without exchanging a shorter or
longer greeting, and sometimes even joinim:
company. Thus, then, there could have
lieen no violent rupture. We must have
decided either to postpone the marriage in
definitely or else for some unknown reason to
abandon all idea of it. Certainly every
probability pointed to the latter hypothesis.
Could my health be the cause ? Nobody
who knew anything of my habits of life
could for a moment auppoie as muoh. The
idea was ridiculous. I was as robust for my
sex as Mr. Meadowsweet himself. Could
my private income be dependent on some
oondition, prohibiting a second marriage ?
That too, did not team likely. If eo, there
need have been no secret about the matter.
Besides, Mr. Meadowsweet's own income
would have been almost sufficient for ua,
although, no doubt, we could have managed more comfortably with a little more.
Ultimately the matter dropped, and I
gathered from my little maid, who was told
it by her mother, who was told it by her
hu<band the verger, that Mra, Dean had
aaid emphatically that ahe did not like pen-
S'.e who were mysterious, and that Mr.
uMi had expressed mora or less concurrence in the sentiment at being a sound one.
One day, however, when I had thought
that the matter was over. I received a tetter through my solicitors, which I felt certain at the time meant trouble, although
did not guess then in what shape and ma
iter the trouble would oome,
My father had written to ma under cover
to Messrs. Wylie ft \\ ylie, who had very
wisely refused to give him my address. It
was the old story of course. He very muoh
wished to aee me,and he badly wanted a little
money. Could we not meet again, and
could I not listen to his troubles?
Then oame a long string of excuses, false
on the fi.ee of them, for his impecunious
condition, His expenses were enormous,
hia account was overdrawn, and would not
be sat right until tha next Mlohaelmas
Cathedral audit, If even then. All he want*
ed wai a little money, not to pay into his
bankers, but to lock up in hli bureau, and
to carry on the war with, A couple of
hundred pounds would be more than enough
andata pinch he could make a hundred and
fifty do. In any event he trusted that I
would let him half fifty, aa it was utterly
Impossible for a man in his position to go
about without half-a-crowu in his pocket,
or not to have a sovereign ready if it were
wanted for any small purpose, He would
write me any promise or undertaking to pay
that my lawyers might suggest, and they
might then aot upon it, if they thought fit,
should the utter impossible contigency of his
not making punctual payment occur.
This, he added, he meant in earnest, but
could hardly help regarding it as a joke,
seeing that his word bad alwayB been as
good as hia bond. (This last remark wai
unoonsohuily true.) Sir Henry, he continued, had, to hia great surprise, moat
positively declined to assist him further.
Finally, he begged an immediate answer,
assuring me that time wai of vital importance.
I could hardly help laughing aa I read
between lhe lines of this pitiful begging
letter from a man who, to put the matter
most plainly, ought to have saved money
and to be laving it, instead of to be thua
abjectly out at elbows and down at heel.
Then I became indignant when I recollected what my relations with my father
had always been, and what part he had
played in the history of my unhappy life,
I could scarcely at first trust myself to
write to him, but I did so at last after a
lapse of a few days. I put no addteu and
aeut the letter to London by the guard o!
the train with instructions to post It there,
registering it, and bring mo back the receipt,
"lam very much surprised," I wrote,
that you should oome to ma for money,
although not at all surprised and quite
ready to believe that you are in what you
consider a necessity sufficient to justify the
"I have a small income, outof which,
as a matter-of-fact, I am able to save, and
do what I can In the way uf charity. Yours
doea not seem to me to ne a case that at all
calls for charity and, personally, I consider
that you have not the slightest claim upon
"If you wish to save yourself vexation
you had better take thii as my final decision,
and if you want money you must aet to
work and borrow it as other men do, and on
the beat terms yon oan.
"You might find your past experiences
atOsBuleton useful, and perhapa Mr, Thaeker, now that you are transferred to a wider
field of usefulness, might be disposed to
meet any little request on yonr part in a
correspondingly wide spirit. You have
certainly quite as muoh claim upon him aa
upou myaelf, and I know no reason why,
with a little diplomacy, you could not get
him to tee how moderate your request really
I sealed the letter boldly with a Craven
signet-ring, whioh i had happened to have
among my effects, and,ai subsequent events
will sufficiently show, it reached its destination, and alio produced exactly its in
tended effect.
For my own part I dismissed the matter
from my mind.
" 1 was now, to use a homely phrase that
exactly expresses my meaning, gutting on
famously in Salchester society. The women
were still tny friends, aud thu men my devoted servants. It waB agreed universally
that I was a nice, quiet amiable body,
entirely devoid of malice or mischief, and
whatever my past troubles might have been,
it would be unkind, and, in fact indelicate
to inquire Into them. They were, so everybody conouired, entirely my own affair,
and i bore my cross with a meekness and
resignation that waa highly creditable to
As to Mr. Meadowsweet, opinion was
divided. Some people were only too ready
to denounce him as a fortune-hunter, who,
having been disappointed in his ideas as to
my position, had not scrupled lo jilt me
very shabbily. One old lady, indeed, had
it from her brother, who wai a lawyer in
London, and had got liis information in the
strictest confidence from a olerk in the office
ol the solicitors of the late Mr, Allen, that,
according to Mr. Allen's will, all my money
if I married again waa u�� go away from
me at once to hie own relationa, who in
consequence watched me as oloeely as a
conclave of eats watching a mouse-hole.
This was an admirable explanation. It
suited all the facta. It had an element of
romance in it, and It was discreditable to
poor Mr, Meadowaweet,
Thia latter faot, when I aame to consider
it, annoyed me so thoroughly that I had
half a mind to take the ohl Dean himself
into my confidence. He was prejudiced,
no doubt. He might even tell me that he
could no longer receive me at the Deanery,
ami suggest the advisability, entirely on
my own behalf and for my own good, of
my changing my quarters.
This would be unpleasant; but it was a
riak I was quite prepared to take for Mr.
Meadowsweet's sake. His behavior had
been that of a gallant gentlemen, and it waa
my evident duty to aee that he did not
I had all but decided on taV��g this step
and I had, in tact, convinced myself that
common justice demanded I should do so,
wlian a circumstance occurred which Bived
me the trouble.

morning, aud I want you to pick out the

to his sen at the dinner table one day,
Tom aaid nothing, but looked hia dismay,
and forgot to eat the piece of turnip which
he had held balanced on the end of hii
three-tineri fork.
"Throw them over on the weat aide of
the lot, then they will be out of the way,"
continued hia father, as he put on hii hat
tc go back to his work.
���"Yea, sir," said Tom.
Thu door shut, and Tom groaned. "I
was going over to Sam'e to matte that boat
this afternoon," he explained to his aym*
pathetic mother. "I thought that meadow
wasn't going to be plowed till next week."
"If you go rightabout it, perhaps you
oan get through in time to go to Sam's,"
advised his mother.
"It will take the whole afternoon to do
it all alone, and I shan't get throug h be re
dark," said Tom, dismally.
Mrs. Green said nothing more, and began
to wash the dishes.
Tom wandered out into the hen yard with
his hands in his pockets. He stood watching an old biddy call her chicks about her,
when suddenly a bright idea atruck him.
"I've got it he cried, giv ing such a warwhoop
that the hen and her chickens scattered in
eleven directions. Hu turned ou hla heel
and rushed into the home very differently

She looked at him and aaw a roguish
twinkle In his brown eyea.
"Well," she aaid, "only, Tom, don't
fail to have your work done by night,"
"No ma am," trying to look sober,
though he smiled In spile of himself. Au
hour later he came into the dining.room
where she waa sewing, and tilted himself
on herrocker while he coaxed :
Say, mother, can't I have a few of the
fellows to supper, and won't ynu make
some hot biscuits ? Father's gone to the
village, and won't get home till seven
o'clock, so he won't care."
"I gueaa so," she answered. "I was
going to make biscuits anyway, and I can
make a few extra just as well.
She did not ask him why he wanted the
boys to supper, but she knew he wai working out some bright idea ot his own and,
motherlike, was ready to help' while she
watched him curiously. Soon after ahe
heard him sawing in the wood-shed, then
he came In to ask for some red paint.
The boys came at four o'clock according
to Tom's Invitation. There were four of
them besides Tom.
Mra. Green looked out of the kitchen
window, and saw Tom taking them towards Pike Meadow. Over on the west
side of the meadow she could see some
bright object standing on the stone wall,
but she could not tell what it was. Then
ahe aaw the boyaitoop and fill their pockets with stones. Then they formed in a
line, and took turns at throwing the atones
at the object, on the other side. They kept
their shot flying, little by little moving
nearer their target. Meanwhile shu baked
her delicious biscuits, and laughed to her-

General Wolfe's Sword.
Mr. Henry ���), Morgan, of Ottawa, has
lieen informed by Messrs. Southey, Wilkin*
ion and Hodge, KI Wellington atreet,
Strand, London, England, that the sword
carried by General Wolfe at lhe taking of
Quebec ia to be aold at auction. I tne of the
owners of this interesting weapon was a
citizen of Ottawa, the late Mr. Stewart
Derbishere, for many years Queen's printer,
and who had previously represented Bytown
in the Legislative Assembly of (.aoeda. Mr.
Derbishuru gave it to Major Dunn, of the
100th Regiment, on hiB departure from
Canada in 1858. Major Dunn wu at Hal-
aklava, and won the Viotoria Cross for
bravery. From him it passed to Mr. Thur*
low Dowling, of the War Office, whose son
now offers, for private reasons, to dispose
of it. During the London Exhibition of
1862, we are informed by an article in Good
Words, tbe sword waa displayed in the
Canadian department, " where It was examined by thousands with that tender respect whioh everything connected with the
young hero who fell on the Plains of Abraham ought ever to excite." ft was surmounted by a scroll, with an Imperial
crown, having the inscription, " Sword of
General Wolfe, who fell at Quebec, 13th

A Chance for Ihe liMra-ilnytil in the Hilts
and Towns.
A a time when people's minds are ocoupi
ed with public questions matters regarded*
of minor importance are allowed to drop
out of sight although they may have ns inconsiderable bearing on our social or national oondition. One of these Ib the general
complaint of the scarcity of farm laborers iu
tho interior counties of the cour try, and is
wot thy of thoughtful attention at this time,
when cities and towns are greatly distressed
hy the number of the unemployed. There
is no doubt a large proportion of these could
find employment on farms if they were so
disposed. Certainly the prevailing wagea
is low when compared with the regular-
wages of artisans and skilled laborers,being
on many farms from fifty to seventy-five
cents a day ; but that is not ao bail iu the
couutry as it sounds in the town, and is
certainly much better than dependent idleness. It must not,however, be overlooked,
in defense of the idle tradesman that a very
large proportion of the men would be of no
use on a farm even if they went there, and
could not earn oven the prescribed half-
dollar if they tried. The boys from the
farms, or a majority of them, at least, have
gone to the towns or to tho factories and
work-shops.and if they have learned a trade
it iB generally one that unfits them
for bucolic employment. Farmers, who
are a shrewd class of men and reason on
the closest margin, will seldom give employment to an iron worker, for example,
for the simple reason that he is about aa
useless in the hay-field as the farmer himself would be at the furnace and as much
in everybody's way. Thc factory hands
could no more wetld a scythe than they
could an old time battle axe. In other
words we have a surplus of poople trying
to make a living by various forms of manufacturing and trading and not as many as
are needed iu productive agriculture.
Farmers themselves might at the present
time, take advantage of tho situation to
their own and general profit. Men have
been leaving tlie country for the town
because they could earn more thore. The
farmers want ihem back again and they
want an inducement to turn the other way.
In farming as in all other employments it
is a recognized condition that the best
wagea secure the beat men and the farmer
who concludes to pay liberal wages to
first-class hands will be the most likely to
get them, and ia lhe one whose harvesting
will be a success in every respect.

There ia food for reflection in the figures
showing the export of cheese and butter
from Montreal during the present aeason.
Up to the close of the wiek ending July 1.
457,199 boxes of cheese bad been shipped,
or 172,557 more than in the same period
last year. On the other hand, only 1,919
package! of butter had been exported,
which is 2.572 packages less than up to the
same date last year. It also appears that
during the first week of July no shipments
of butter had been made.
Why the encouraging increaie in the
cheese export and the deplorable shrinkige
in the shipment of butter? In the case ot
the former, prices, although lower perhaps
than makers care to see, are faiily regular
and remunerative, aud the market ia likely
to ke p firm, for
and thu wiae manner of supplying tlie
market give Canadiau cheeae a standing
that helps to sustain prices iu the liritish
market*. This, unfortunately, cannot be
said of our buttor. With Danish, Dutch
aud Irish butter declining in value, our
'colonial," as it is termed, is not inquired for
iu London, and is away down in the other
English markets. This Is not becaulu tirst -
claaa butter -annul bo made lu Canada, nor
Is it because a prime article uanuut be delivered iu Englat.d. Hull) of these -.usslbtll
tius havu beeu successfully demonstrated.
Our fresh i*reamery butter is fully cjusl to
tho finest Danish. But one great trouble
seems tn be that, too many packers and
shippers haudls butter as they would cheese.
It is uxpensive work, however, "curing"
butter lu cold storage. Time is no friend
to the flavor or body of choice creamery,
and tho long confinement muat tell even
worae upon tiie storo-packed article
Butter for the British markets muat be
carefully made���of a firm and even texture,
and with a rich flavor suggestive of our
splendid pastures. It must then be handled by men who understand the business.
It Bhould pass from maker to user as soon
as possible. While it must have cold
storage all thc way from the making room
tc the counter, it should uot be trusted too
loug and too implicitly to cold storage Our
only hope, so far as the British markets are
concerned,   lies iu
with the best cold storage during the
summer time. Our pastures can flavor our
butter most rieliuiously,and quick carriage
in oold clumbers can largely retain that
dainty flavor. We canuot expect to sue- j
cesafully compete with the Australasian
colonies in the winter; their grass fed cowa
are in too good condition then.
It is a saying among cur dairymen that
"Cheeae liking." The industry is certainly the pride of Ontario, in this Province
alone cheese to the value of $9,0110,000 is
annually manufactured- Up to the end
of the tirst week of July nearly $3,000,000
of British money has been circulating in
Canada in return for our cheese made in
1894. And they asked for moro. But in
the matter of our butter���marie from the
same pasture-fed cows���there are no requests for further shipments. As already
intimated, we can send choice butter to
England iu lim-class condition, and that
usually means a good price. But we cannot do so by keeping it In cold storage for
big shipments or an expected rise in price.
Varioua methods of handling butter mean
all the difference there Is between a slump
and a boom.

An Eccentric Judge.
The late Sir Matthew Bcgbie, of British Columbia, was a trifle eccentric, A
little whilo ago tlio journalists nf the
province came under hia caustic notice.
Sometimes the jurymen serving under
him were very severely dealt with. Kor
example, iu IK83 a man waa charged
in Viotoria with killing another man with
a Handbag, and iu the fare of tlie Judge's
summing up the jury brought lu a verdict
of "Not guilty," This gained for them a
very pointed judicial admonition. Said the

Occupations for Girls.
With the widening of the avenues of employment for women there ahould be mure
painstaking care upon the part of pareuts
to provide against future contingencies by
so educating every girl in some useful or
suitable employment that she could take
care of herself in cose of necessity. Because there are so many more things a
woman may do in these later days theie is
less execusu for neglect. Every woman
should be a capable housekeeper. So much
is rudimental. But it is r.ever quite certain until the marriage day may have been
set whether a girl is destined lo bu her own
housekeeper. Too often it happens, even
then, that marriage proves a failure ; and
the wife discovers, too late for remedy, that,
instead of being cherirbed snd supported,
she muBt support herself uud bear up under
whatever additional burden the i a riagu
re ation may thrust upon her. Happy,
then, the woman who in her youth may
Imv** acquired that mastery of her bauds
winch will r im hie her to earn tier bread and
assure her own independence and usefulness
u spite of ill-fortune.

Vinegar From Fruit Juice.
During the canning season many a cup of

jug in a warm place and pouring iuto it all
fruit juice, rinsings from honey or syrup

enough to nicely cover Ihem and the water
ia then drained into tho jug. Keep a oloth

ll is difficult to obtain very late news
from the seal of war, and the movements
au far have not been by so large a force
as we would naturally expect in these
days of improved amis and uf ihe numerically great nations engaged. Their appears a disposition, among the onlpoking
nations to let ihem fight it out and take
such commercial advantage of It as pos-
sible. There appears no good reason to
suppose that other nations will become
involved, no more at least than there
always is that where, there is a spark of
war that the conflagration will become
general. The feeling of apathy tint exists is partly owing, doubtless, to the
bellcfthat the shedding of other than
Coucasian blood is of no great detriment
10 the world. The Asiatic overflow is not
relished, and the danger that it may be-
coine a deluge is lessened bv martial
c* vents. The tide which Lord Wulleslcy
deprecated may yet reach us unless it is
Stayed by an united Saxon bulwark. The
millions of Mongolians mobilized and led
by some military genius like Napoleon
would be well nigh irresistable. Let
them fight, therefore, is the prevailing
sentiment, and while the earth drinks
llieir blood, let us fill our coffers. That
ia not a very elevated view of the
situation but it is the common one. Its
intense selfishness is relieved somewhat
by a patriotic coloring and sincere conviction thai the highest good to the race

Tho commission appointed by President Cleveland has already commenced
its labors and promises togo to the bottom
of the trouble. Their report will of course
b�� exhaustive and will be made to the
President and by nun sent to Congress
with such recommendations as he may
th'uk proper to make. We may reasonably hope that it will finally result in some
useful legislation preventive of strikes.
Hut after all the laborer must learn chiefly to depend on himself. If the government becomes so paternal that he
need not rely op. himself, it will do him
mote injury than good. Almost any one
in this country may by economy and self
restraint lay in a few years thc foundations of easy circumstances. Nevertheless the restraining influences of a strong
wise government are necessary to a prosperous and contented people. Hut how
far the government should become paternal is a difficult question.
Courtenay has reached a point where
tl is necessary for the peace of the people
that there should be some* officer to maintain good order, aud prevent molestation

aie now our citizens have no protection

there being no constable to look after any
disturber. Lasl Friday an old man, intituled with liquor was darning up and

business who sells beer or spiritious
liquor without a license is quickly notified
t>�� lake out a license, and very properly
100. Why should anyone engaged in an
im noral traffic be allowed privileges over
and above others? The cancerous spots

of the manifold goods into which all theae

duty on woolen go< da in the McKinley hill
is !is\ This has been reduced more than
half. There is also cousiderable reduction
in all tht) schedules, and tho average on all
will bo about 38 per cent., as against about
.10 per cent, under the present law. The
right of the president to levy taxas without
the c in-cut of congreis is tattt-n away and
given back to congress to which it be'oiiga,
and from whlph it wai wrested by the
McKinleylaw. Much has heen aaid enn*

thau by thu McKiuley law. H should not
be forgotten al*n�� that the system reooin-
mended by the house, known as the income
tax, is retained in the bill and becomus a
part of our fi-ical policy. By thia it Is proposed to tax what people have ia exoesa uf

Although Parliament will nnt riso for a

only the anuual supplies necessary for tiu*
expenses of administration are left to be

Sir Charles D Ike, radical, has introduced
in parliament a remarkable woman suffrage
bill. His proposal is that any woman of
full age, whether married or oiugle, Hhall bd
periuited to vote, or to be a candidate in
any parliamentary or boa! election. A
woman duly elected shall, he proposes, bo
allowed to sit iu cither the House of Lorda
or tho House of Commons, The bill provides for universal adult suffrage but excludes the universities from their present
privileges. Emanating aa it dues from the
mind of an experienced and able politician
the bill is regarded as one of the most peculiar products of the session,
It is probable that over ��11,000,000 was
offered to China, and this produced the result that China was not inclined to pay over
4 yer cent, for her loan. Tl.ore ia no doubt
that ��1,500,000 gold will be issued here
early iu September. The loan will probably
consist of 4 per cent, thirty.year bonds, and
at least two-thinh of this amount will be
payable to China iu silver. For this loan
there is uo special security, like the customs
receipts, but only general faith iu China,
It is not believed tbat Berlin will baue any
controlling hand in thc issue of theloan, although probably Berlin will be compelled to
take a portion of the loan on ground flour
terms. There ia a great scramble among
financiers, including London brokers of all
ranks, to get on the inside uf the op* ration,
aud there is no doubt that thc loan is obtainable iu Loudon twenty timea over. The
negotiations for the loau have already
affected the prioe of silver, aud there U no
question that silver will go higher. Some
of the tlnauoiors predict that it will go as
high as 82(1 per ounce. Tho harduosa ofthe
silver mark-tt is most pronounced, aud it

What is an Insurance Sale?
So many people ask the question.   We shall explain:	
After the late disasterous fire in Nanaimo the Insurance Companies cancelled a large number of policies in some blocks. We
have just S10.000.00 to place just at present in any other Company.
Now we cannot afford to carry over large (.tock without sufficient insurance. Consequently we are compelled to unload. To do
this quickly we have put the prices lower on everything in our immense stock���than Dry Goods have ever been bought befoie��� lers
than cost in nearly every instance. See price lists which we hnve
sent out.
