He Does Not Believe In the Indications for Peace ��� But Urges the
Strengthening of ihe Country's Defences Does Not Bolieve in a Long
Era of Peace Fledges tho Oppotltlon
to Co-Operate in Materially Increasing
the Empire's Power.
London, Jan. 22. -Arthur J. Balfour,
le ider of the Unionists in the House of
Comm 'Us, spoke ut some length this even-
ing before a meeting in Manchester on the
subject of imperial defence. Thia subject,
he said, was at. present of paramount interest;. Airy nation,or combination of nations,
which was able to wrest from Great Britain
her supiemucy of sous, could bring her to
hor knees, without landing a siugio soldier
ou English soil.
He did not believe any government was
justified in expecting a long era of peace.
The Frenoh and Russian Governments wire
pushing for** an! with nllipeed anil Wnrki
their dockyards, Certain movements ii.AUe
of late years iu Asia,were only too obviously
directed against England. While there
were judications that France and Russia
were earnestly bent upon peace, their mam
arrangements were prompted by the assumption of u conflict with England, sooner
or later, singly or combined. He believed
Ihat the Eoglish people were amicably disposed towaid France, but he must admit,
with the deepes*. regret, the conviction that
the French were hostile to England. Finally Mr. Balfour appealed to the electors
to influence their representatives in Parliament by all possible means to assist in
quickly aud efficiently strengthening the
country's defences. He could pledge the
Opposition, he said, to cn-nperate cordially
wiiti me Government iu its every erlbrt to
increase England's naval and military
pow er.

Lo Bengula's Allotment.
London, Jan. 22 ���A despatch from Cape
town to the Daily News says: Sir Henry
Loch, hus dispatched a messenger to King
i o Bengula, pledging iu the Queen's name
that, if he surrenders, his life and interests
shall be ussuie.; and he shall not be deported from Africa. Sir Henry has arranged
with 1'remier Cecil Rhodes to provide the
king with au adequate tract of laud south ot
the Orange river, the Chartered Company
furnishing the royal income.
Tho Sports Come Slow.
Jacksonville, Fla. Jan. 22.���Referee
Kelly has carried the day in regard to the
conversion of that $20,000 check into u
��0,000 puiso of actual money. He returned
from a conference with Mitchell ut 0:30 this
evening and immediately went to the Duval
Club looms, by appointment. Mitchell had
delegated his authority in the matter to
Kelly and Cornell. had done the same, so he
was at liberty lo do as he liked aud decided
finally lo demand the cash. After an hour's
secret session, it wus announced that, by a
unanimous vote, the club had agreed to remove the restrictions on the check and allow
the referee to cash it to-morrow.
Including the newspaper men there are
not more than 400 strangers in town who
have come to see the contest. The incoming trains are engerly watched, but the
lovers of pugilism are painfully slow in
materializing.
There has been a renewal of the talk of
the procuring of an injunction which would
prevent the interference with the fighters
by the sheriff, but this would uotseeure immunity if the governor should declare mar-
tial law, and altogether the day has been a
blue aud dispiriting one to the riugsters.
At ihe headquarters of the lighters,affairs
were not much brigh'er; the f.icfc wus developed,as indicated iu a pjevious despatch,
that Mitchell's objection to transportation
arrangements was based "ii the l.ick of consideration for his convenience aud comfort.
"Ike" Thompson sent from Mitchell's
headquarters a despatch to Joseph Shipsey,
in winch he said: "No truth tu the rumor
ihat Mitchell is not ready and tit to fight.
Het tor him {2,000 on my pari.
We will go in any ling tho Duval Club so-
lee ��� In St. John's or Duval county."
.Mitchell exprestes himself as tired of the
Duval Club's methods, aod says he would
agiee willingly to fight in private for the
���takes and the side bet, relinquishing the
c uli purse.
Colonel Cockerel1, counsel for tho Duval
Club, returned from Tallahassee this afternoon and is repented lo have since then advised the club to petition Judge Call, of the
State Circuit Court, fur nn injunction restraining the sheriff of this county from interfering v-iith tho club's proposed boxing
exhibition. PaperB were at once prepared
and the petition *.vas submitted to the judge
in chambers this evening. A temporary
stay was granted the petitioners, and the
county attorney wus notified to appear in
the circuit court to-morrow to Bhow cause
why the injunction should not bo granted.
Thts temporary stay has given the club
partisans much joy.
After the meeting referee Kelly stated
tliut lie would submit these propositions to
the two men. If the decision is a draw, or
the fight is stopped for any reason, except
interference by the authorities, after the
men have entered the ring, the purse shall
be officially divided. If the authorities stop

kill you." Willi that, Smith fired th
shots at him, und seeing tbat L.mg wus still
alive he grabbed ao axe und stiuck at bim
till he died. A party wenl to investigate
and found that Long was dead and horribly
butchered; that he had evidently been killed
in the doorway of Ihe cub.n, as blood war
sprinkled all around, and the body then
dragged to the woodpile; the axe, covered
with blood, was beside it. I. is supposed
that the trouble arose about jumping land

suffering from intern-.1 injuries at the Union
Square hotel, New York. Cliqnot gave an
exhibition in sword-swallowing this afternoon in his rooma at the hotel. After swallowing all sorts of swords he swallowed a
long cavalry sabre and to show that there
was no deception about the act, he placed a
bar on the hilt which protruded from his
mouth and weighted the bar with a 14-
pound dumbbell. Then he took 14 swords,
the blades of whioh were about an inch
wide, and putting them iu his mouth swallowed them. A Doctor Hope, for whose
benefit the exhibition waa given, instead of
drawing the swords out singly, drew them
all out at once, cutting Cliquot's throat and
mouth severely, and causing the human

AN   INDESTRUCTIBLE  TOOTH.
A Wonderful Story Tliut Is T old of a Japanese l'alace.
As has been hinted by the Philadelphia Press, several long* artieles, if not
whole volumes, could be written under
the general title of "Curiosities About
Teeth.'' At Yakadama, Japan, there is
a eostiy temple built for the sole purpose of affording a shelter for one of
the -grinders of an ancient god of a certain Hindoo seet. This palace is known
by the high Bounding title of "The
Talace of the Sacred Tooth,'' and is a
costly and elegant structure in every
sense of the word.
According to the mythology of India
the god who formerly owned the tooth
pulled it out to hurl it at a giganti ���
cobra, when the irreverent serpent hod
been so indiscreet as to make an attack
upon his godship. In the latter part of
the last century Europeans captured
Yakadama and partially destroyed the
tooth palace. The tooth itself, which
had beeu an object of heathen adoration
for centuries, was ground to a powder
and thrown in the river.
But the particles came together, so
the liindoo priests say, and again
formed themselves into a perfect tooth,
which was found after the siege quietly reposing in the bed of the stream.
The temple has been rebuilt, and the
tooth, more revered than ever since the
attempted destruction, is again enshrined as an object for adoration. It
is kept in a gold box, wrapped in films
from the sacred white spider's web, the
first gold box being inclosed in eight
others of the same precious metal.

Kicked tlie Wrong One.
A young woman has been taught a
lesson against all communication by
signs, says the New York World.
There were unexpected guests at dinner
the other night, and her younger sister
sat ou one side of the table beside one
of them. The sister was extremely
communicative, and the older became
very nervous as revelation after revelation concerning family affairs was
made. She finally took to nudging the
offender beneath the table, but" foot
pressures, however forcible and frequent, failed to stop the chatterer.
After dinner the much annoyed young
Woman demanded fiercely: "What did
you mean by not paying any attention
to my signals? How dared you go on
so when 1 kept kicking you to make
you stop?" Whereupon the younger
sister looked mystified. "Signals?
Kicks?" said she; "but, my dear, you
didn't kick me." And the family disciplinarian sank back limply as she
gasped: "Oh, Sara, don't, don't tell me
1 was kicking that man!"

night  of   the full moon they play another German air entitled: "Sweet and

.iiiiiiiint of Salt lu All Oceans.
Expert hydrographers and others of a
curious turn of mind anil a faculty for
figuring on things that seem impossible
of solution have concluded that the
waters of the oceans and seas of our
globe hold uot less than 30,000,000,000,-
000,000 tons of salt in suspension! If
these figures are correct and the oceans
should be entirely dried up, there would
be a deposit of salt 45U feet deep over
every foot of the great basin. If takeu
out and spread upou what is now dry
Land it would give us a salt covering
nearly M00 feet thick.

EXPENDITURES ON TRUNK ROaDS
The statement made by the Provinoial
Government in the speech from the throne
read hy the Lieutenant-Governor at the
opening of the Legislative Assembly on
Thursday evening last, that the House will
be asked in deliberating on the items of expenditure to consider the justice of aiding
township municipalities bv expenditures
upon trunk roads, is deserving of approval.
The proposal is an excellent one, and we
doubt not will be favorably considered by
the House. We do not see how it can he
opposed even by the so-called Independents,
whose role it is to oppose everything that
the Government proposes to do. There is
no sort of expenditure by Ihe Government
that will give belter result"*, or afford more
satisfaction to the people at large, than expenditure havim; for i's object to improve
the trunk roads of the Province. Much hus
been done in the past in the way of constructing and improving trunk roads, but
much still remains 'n he done. There is
probably nn proviaoe in the Dominion which
in proportion lo its population, and considering lhe enormous difficulties to he encountered, has done as much to carry out a system of trunk roads, some of which have iu
former years been constructed and maintained under difficulties almost as great as
those which made the building of the Canadian Pacific railway itself seem to many a
work too difficult and costly even for the
Dominion Government to undertake, The
improving and extending of the trunk roads
are of vital importanoo to the development
and progress of the province, and the Provincial Government deserves great credit,
and ought to be supported by all, in its
efforts to 'do so. There is no feature of t he
Government's policy which belter deserves
support than this.
SECRETARY   <'ARULE'S   COURSE
EXPLAINED.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which is
bitterly opposed to President Cleveland's
administration, in an ar.icl*; on the issue of
bonds by Secretary Carlisle, throws some
light on the situation, and gives the bett
explanation which we have seen of the
action of the secretary in issuing the bouds
without first obtaining the sanction of Congress,    Our Seattle contemporary says,
"The action ol the sectetary was compelled by the situation. Secretary Carlisle knew that the passage of a bill au'hor-
izing a shorter time bond with a lower
rate of interest could not, be secured at
present in congress; the necessities of the
treasury were too pressing to allow any
further delay, so the secretary has wisely
decided to issue bondB under the powers
given him by the act of January 14, 1876
It is true that his right to do so under
this act is disputed by a number nf
respectable authorities in both parties,
nevertheless so sound a financier as John
Sherman did not"!,e-itate o tell Secretary
Carlisle last spring that, he believed lhe secretary eould 1* gully issue bonds under the
aot of 1875, '1 he strongest minds in both
parties on the senate finance, committee
agree with Senator Sherman and in a time
of omergenoy the secretary of the treasury
is justified in stretching his powers to their
fullest limit to protect the credit of the
nation."
* * * # * N
"Congress has forced Secretary Carlisle to
fall back on his powers under existing laws
to protect the gold reserve or g'eenhack redemption fund, and tho secretary is wise in
assuming that congress cannot be relied
upon to enlarge his powers by "nacting the
legislation he asked for. On the contrary,
the sllverites, Populists and Democratic inflationists would to-day if they could pass a
resolution prohibiting the secretary from
the issue of any bonds whatever. What,
these follows want is an enormous increase
of legal tenders, either in shape of the free
coinage of Bilver or the issue of silver
paper."
This appears to be the true explanation of
the aotion of President Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle in not asking the sanction of
Congress before issuing the bonds. If so it
is not muoh to the credit of Congress, that
it, oould not bo trusted by the administration to aot with promptness in a matter of
such importance, and that in consequence.
the Secretary of the Treasury is forced to
fall Lack upon au old aot whioh may, perhaps, technically cover the action he is compelled to take. The House of Representatives especially seems to be filled with a lot
of ignorant and presumptuous cranks, who
would disgrace a parish vestry,   who  ought
not to be elected to a national legislature,
and who cannot be trusted by the administration to act in a rational manner. The
second of the two paragraphs which we have
quoted ahnve, is, in fact, the sfverest indictments which we have ever seen of the
practical results of the American system of
government, as well of the intelligence of
the American people in electing such men
to renresent them in Congress, If a British
journal had spoken m such terms of
American Congressmen it would have been
set down at once to British prejudice and
ignorance of things American, and would
have been regarded by Americans generally
as both false and offensive. But it is pub-
lished iu au extreme Republican organ,
which has no sympathy with British ideas
or methods, and is therefore received by
Americans generally as a matter of course.
Assuming it to he true, iheu commend us to
the government of the Czar in preference to
a system which produces such results. It*
fact the American system is compelling Mr.
Cleveland and his secrtaries to ne* almost as
autocratically as theCz *r himself ��� mor-'auto-
oratioally than the Emperor William of Germany would dare to aot, especially in matters
pertaining to the national finances. It is
thus seen how extremes ot democracy and
absolutism meet.
Tut*. San Francisco Chronicle snys:
"The late of Captain Wilson's small band
of British troopi in Malabeleland recalls
the Custer massacre. Iu both cases the
commanders, in their eager desire to inflict punishment upon a savage enemy,
disregarded ordinary precautions. Custer
thought he was attacking a small body of
retreating Sioux, when in reality he was
lurid into the midst of the whole tribe,
who outnumbered his lit lie band by a
thousand to one. In the same way Cap-
taiu VVilson's force of two score troopers
was actually borne down and annhilated by
their savuge foes, whom they could have
successfully resisted had 'bey been behind
fortifications with a few good field pieces.
The lesson is a severe one, but it will probably serve to tench British troops caution
even when iu the field against, foes that they
despise. The only redeeming feature of
the massacre is the bravery displayed by
this little band when death was seen to be
certain. It is such exhibitions of dauntless
courage as this which gives prestige to
Biitish arms In all parts of the world."
Mr. T. H. Davies, Kaiulaui's gvurdian,
says the provisional government of Hawaii
cannot possibly go on, because it is simply
the rule of the mob, answerable only to
popular clamor. Mr. Davies seems to forget that the United States Government is
little else, and Ihat whole tendency of the
Gladstoue regime in Great Britain is to
make mob rule in that country supreme. In
fact in all democratic countries it is now the
thing for statesmen who would be popular
to appeal to the massis against the clahses,
just as Mr. Cladstone does. The next step
after the rule ot the masses, I list is of the
most ignorant dass- s, is once established,
will be to revert to the one man power���the
rule of the man on horsebuek���that is to say
absolutism, at first under some popular
name, as was done in ancient Rome when
the republic was overthrown and the masses
attained to power. Then in due time Caesar
arose, and his successors speedily established
the most cruel tyranny ever seen in the
world. The United States seem not far
from that now. It will be England's turn
next. In the meantime it will not matter
much what becomes oi Hawaii.
The CLOSING of the mints in India to the
free coinage of silver seems to have turned
out, a failure, and it is now a question
whether th* India Government will not
have to confess its error and retrace ils
steps. There has b**en a further fall in the
price of the rupee from 15-J 1 fixed by the
cuuoil. The Statist in discussing the situation says: "India has for more than six
months done without council drafts, If
this goes on the Gnvi rnment will become
biukrupt. If the Government can neither
borrow nor sell diafis, how are its engagements to be met? The Government ought
immediately to recognize the mistake and
not allow false shame to prevent its retracing its steps and re-opening its mints."
The fact is that the British Government
should without more deluy issue un invitation
for the re-assembling of au international
conference on lhe silver question,aud should
concur with the United States and the great
powers of Europe in remonetlze silver, after I
first fixing its rutio to gold. This is the,
only way to put a stop lo the fall iu the!
price of the rupee, and to save India from
bankruptcy. There should be no hesitation I
in doing this at, once. If (iieat Britain did
so, and acicd in good faith, we believe she
would bo supported by the United Slates,
by Germany, and all the powers.

Additional interest is lent this coining

sought ideas from the history of the

And, furthermore, thousands of their

hardly a family in Norway without

I The potent influence which these have
wielded, both personally and through

been a principal factor in rousing the

Death.
Edward Garner a native of County Down,
Ireland, died at his residence on Bastion
Btreet, yesti rday morning, at the ace of 73
The deceased had been known iu Nauaimo
for a number of years as a tailor. He Has a
great sufferer from asthma. The funeral
will take place this afternoon from the
undertaking parlors of Hilbert k Son. The
Rev. D. A. McRrea will read the services.
The Laird of Lasqucti.
At an early hour on Sunday morning the
sloop Wild Swan arrived at Johnston's
wharf. A highly resonant voice soon made
it apparent that t he Laird of Las-quell had
arrived from his island home, and with him
his aide-de-camp, Tim W ithers. They are
registered at the Windsor. Laird Mac-
Lachlan alias Charlie, was one of the guests
who gathered round Captain Blair Hunter's
dinner party on Sunday evening iu the
Windsor dining room.
H.H.S. Pheasant's Visit.
Captain Blair Hunter, of the Pheasant,
had never been in Nanaimo before Sunday
last, although he has passed itsceral times.
He says now that he will never fail again to
give Nauaimo a call when his duties permit.
The captain's impression of Nauaimo only
being a small place, similar to Comox, was
pleasantly dispelled yesterday at the spontaneous symposium held in the dining room
at the Windsor, where Sir Richard ilus-
grave entertained the gallant captain iu
right loyal style. Among the guests were
Mr. nnd Mrs. Dickenson, Mr. and Mrs.
Norris, Messrs. Snowden and MacLachlan.
Hosts Dempsey and Halton produced the
best both from cellar and in cuisine, much
to the guests' enjoyment and entertainment.
By his hank style and pel feet manner, the
captain made many friends, even during so
short a stay. Mr. Hickie was atao oue of
the party.

THE LOVERS' STRATAGEM
(Ry Eric St. C. K. Ross.)
CHAPTER VI.
(CONTINUED)
"So, Sir John is alarmed';" murmured
Evelyn.    "Gulied by his cogging charlatan?
 Alia!    1 may   lietl    h:rn   yet at his   own
weapons!���Hump! hank wi' h  Flash!    Why
do you ask me?"
"Because Sir John has just heard that
they are in a very bad way, and begs you
to withdraw anything you havo in their
hands."
"I'll see to it," said Evelyn. "So Sir
John is a/armed at my gambllngj"
"TerriblyI" cried Graves. "He even told
me he should go himself to the club, this
evening, to watch you."
"To Wdtoh in;! Did he ���good���I will be
there."
"But you will promise no to play."
"Yea, to play, oried Evelyn." "I fi el it
is impossible to give It up!'
"No���no!" Raid Graven, "Sdeath, man!
bo as wretohed as you please; break your
heart, that's nothing! but damme, take care
of your poi'ki ts!"
"Thank ye,Graves," exolaimed thewealthy
man, "you are right���I m��y extricate myself yet���the duper shall be duped. Io lhe
next twenty-four bouts I may !*ring back
the happiness of a life. Oh I if thia Bciieme
should succeed."
"What scheme?"
"I will be there," cried Eielyn in an ec
centric manner, "I will play with Cuptain
Smooth���I will lose a* much .no I pleaie ���
thousands���millions���billions; aud if he presume to spy on my losses, hang me if I don't
lose Sir John himself into the bargainl"
Then be added, returning from the door, "I
am so absent! What was the banlf you
mentioned? Flash, Brisk & Credit. Bless
me, how unlucky! and it's too lato to* draw
out to-day. Tell Sir John I'm very much
obliged to him, and he'll find me at the club
any time before daybreak hard at work with
my friend Smooth.
Aa ho hurried away, Mr. Graves said���
"He's certainly crazy! but I don't wonder
at it. What the approach of tho dog days
is to tho ('"tunc species, the approach of the
honeymoon is to the human race."
A servant now entered aud said���
"Lady Franklin's compliments���she will
see you in tbe boudoir, sir."
"In the boudoir���go���go, I'll come directly," and the servant, retired.
"My heart boils���i'. must be for grief.
Poor M win!" Here he commenced searching his pock *ts for a handkerchief. "Not a
white one," he murmured. "Just like my
luck! I call on a lady to talk of the dear
departed, and I have nothing about me but
a confounded gaudy flaunting, red, yellow
and blue abomination from India," and in
his wrath ho inarched away to Lady Franklin's snug boudoir, which was a very gem of
a little ro.im, decorated iu white and gold
with light blue silk curtains, porlierres and
hangings generally.
CHAPTER VII.
AN EXTRAORDINARY l'KRFORMANCK.
"I take so much compassion on this poor
man," mui mured Lady Franklin, "who is
determined to make himself wretch-d, that
I am equally determine*1, to make him
happy! Well, if my scheme does but succeed, he shall laugh, he shall sing, he slull
���Mum!���here he comes!" and Mr. Graves
appeared, bowing.
"Ah! Lady Franklin," he sighed.
"Ah! Mr. Graves," she murmured, also
with a sigh.    "Pray be seated "
When both were comfortably ensconced
in charmingly soft fauteuils upholstered in
light blue silk ���Lady Franklin proceeded���
"You'll excuse me for having kept you so
long.    Is it not a charming day?"
"An e\st wind, ma'am!" murmured Mr,
Graves, "hut nothing comes amiss to you!
���it's a happy disposition! Poor Maria!���
Bhe too was naturally gay."
"Yes, she was g>y," agreed the lady.
"So much life, and a great deal of spirit."
"Spirit?" he cried.
"Yes! nothing could master it. She would
have her own way! Ah! there was nobody
like her!" aud he sighed deeply at the
memory.
"And then, when her spirit was up, she
looked so h todsoniel" proceeded Lidy
Franklin.    "Her eyes grew so brilliant!"
"Did not they?" he asked. "Ah! ah!���
ha! ha! hat and d> you remember her pre* ty
trick of stamping her fool?���the tiniest little
foot���I think I see her now. Ah? this conversation is very soothing "
"How well she acted iu your private
theatricals!"
"You remember her Mra. Oakley in 'The
Jealous Wife?'" cried the lamenting widower. "Ha! ha! how good it was���ha!
ha!"
"Ha! ha I Yes, in the very first scene,
wheu she came out with 'Your unkindneas
aud barbarity will be tho death of me!' " and
Lady Franklin mimicked the defunct Maria
beautifully.
"No���no! that's not it!" Graves cried,
not quite satisfied by his companion's effort,
"more energy. 'Your unkindness and barbarity will be the DEATH of me.' Hi! lull
I ought to know bow sho s.iid it, for she
used to practise it on me twice a day. Ah!
poor dear Iambi" And he wiped hia eyes
meditatively,
"And I hen sho sang so veil! was such
a composer!" proceeded Lady Franklin.
"What wis that, lively lit'le uir she w.ih so
fond of?"
"Ha! ha! sprightly? was it uot?" inquired Graves. "Lot me see ���let me see."
And he began to hum a tune very popular
at the p *rind. Whereupon Lidy Franklin
ran the risk of becoming ridiculous by als'i
humming something lik* --turn���ti���ti-tum-
ti - ti���ti. "Nn," that's not it," giving it
up in desp��ir, whereupon Mr. Gravis made
another cheerful bid for success by mumbling���
"Tum-ti���tum-ti���turn���turn���turn," but
the failure of this mauterful al tempt mado
him relapse again into melancholy. Suddenly both seemed to be moved by the same
idea, for they launched out into "Tum-ti���
ti���tum-ti���turn--turn���turn���" and this
they kept up with great vigor for a considerable time, until the odduess of the situation set them both laughing. Mr. Graves
was the first to recover himself. Throwing
himself luxuriously back in hia chair, he
cried
"Ah! what recollections it revives! It ia
too affecting."
"It is affecting, but, donr Mr. Graves, we
are all mortal," said Lady Franklin with a
charming sigh. "And at your Christmas
party, at Cyprus Lodge, do you remember
her dimciug the Scotch reel with Captain
Macnaughten?"
"Ha! ha! ha!   To be  Bure���to  beauro."
"Can you think of the step?���somehow
thua, was it not?" and the versatile lady
began dancing with much grace and agility,
"No, no���quite wrong���just stand there.
Now then!" exclaimed Mr. Graves, carri* d
away by the excellence of ihe subject. Then
he resumed humminu. "La���la���la���la���la
���la- " and he joined her iu the dance, cry-
iii7, "That's it." At laat he took hold of
his coat tails and dancod a Scotch reel
riund tlio Udy, miking all the while
"Don't you recollect when she used to ��io
this step, ah" us-rd to turn her head so
gracefully Ihat's it, madam���that's it ���
that's it."
"Excellent���admirableI" murmured Lidy
Franklin to herself, aa Sir John Vee-ey,
Sir Frederick Blount, and Georgina Vesey,
made their appearance. It is needless
to sav that they were amazed, and, for a
few seconds, utterly powerless iu the
way of expressing themselves, particularly
as Lady Franklin continued to dance with
great vivacity.
"Bewitching!���irresisible! It's Maria
herself that I see before me.    Thus���thu-���
let. me clap "    The movement  he   marie
as he spoke these words brought him face
to face with Sir John, when he exclaim d ���
" Confound it just like my luck," as Luly
Franklin ran away into her dressing-r* om,
laughing immoderately,
"Upon my word, Mr. Graves!" cried Sir
John.
"Encore, encore���bravo!" i-houted Georgina uud Sir Frederiok Blount
"It's all a mistake,"explained Mr. Graves
vainly. "I���I���Sir Johu. Lady Franklin,
you see���that is to say���I���Sainted Marin!
You are spared at. le*.*>t this nifliction.
Just like my luck," and lie lushed out of
the apartment, followed by th* others laughing heartily.
CHAPTER VIII.
RKCKr.ESS   PLAY,   AND   UNIVERSAL   CONSTERNATION.
It is now our duty and privilege to visit
on., of the most famous of the London clubs.
Situated iu St. James's street, it was, it is
needless to say, p dalially built and decorate* i, and the rooms were crowded by tin
most fashionable and wealthy men in the
great metropolis.
It was nig'it, and the general room was
brightly illuminated by crystal gasaliers,
every jet of light being tastefully subdued
by white grouudglaBS globes. Sofas were
arranged all round the great apartment,
wit1* small tables drawn up ag mist them,
aud upon these tables were innumerable
books and papers, and numerous silver
services of tea and coffee. Several members
were grouped around the fireplace; one
member had his legs over the back of the
chair he occupied; another had his shepherd
check-clad lower extremities across a table ;
while a third had his feet on the chimney-
piece. A very old member sit beside n
round table iu one oorner reading a newspaper, nnd at a card-table not far away, sat
the inimitable Captain Dudley Smooth,
stroking hia long brown moustaches, and
sipping lemonade lazily. At a little distauce
there was another card-table, and in the
close vicinity, Lord Glosamore atood talking
to Mr. Stout.
"You don't come often to the club, Stout?"
he wiir saying.
"No; time ia money," returned Stout.
"An hour spent at a club is unproductive
capital."
"Waiter!" cried tho old member, reading the newspaper, "tne anuff box," and the
waiter brought it.
"So Evelyn h*s taken to play?" proceeded
Lord Glossmore. "I aee Deadly Smooth,
hushed in grim repose, awaits his evening
prey. Deep work to-night, I suspect, for
Smooth is drinking lemonade���keeps his
head clear���monstrous clever dog!"
At this moment Mr. Stout took up the
snuff-box, and the old member loosed at
him very savagely. Evenlyn now entered
with a general salute, aud after shaking
hands with different members he approached
Lord Glossmore and Mr. Stout saying"���
"How dy'e do, Glossmore. How are you
Stout?" and then Sir Frederick mado his
appearance.
"You don't play, I think!" proceeded
Evelyn. "Political Economy never plays at
cards, eh?���never has time for anything
more frivolous than Rents and Profits,
Wagea and Labour, High prices and Low���
Corn Laws, Poor Laws, Tithes, Currency���
Dot-and-go-one ��� Rates, Puzzles, Taxes,
Riddles, nnd Botheration ! Smooth is the
man. Aha! Smooth. Piquet, eh? You
owe me my revenge!"
As he said this several members touched
each other significantly. "My dear Alfred,"
said Smooth blandly ���"anything to oblige,"
and they seated themselves.
"Waiter," cried the very old member,
"the snuff-box."
There was some commotion as Evelyn and
Smooth began playing. Men ordered refreshments softly, the old member gut a
glass of brandy and water, and Sir Frederick looked over Evelyn's play.
"So, hi!" he murmured to himself.
"Evelyn at it again, eh, Glossmore?"
"Your point," said Smooth.
"Five," returned Evelyn.
"Not good.    Six���Sequence five."
"Good."
"Three aces."
"Good."
"Yes,*' said Glos8inore,replying to Blount
after standing a few moments iu front of Ihe
gaming tabic, "Smooth sticks to him like a
leech.    Clever fellow, that Smooth!"
"Will you makeup a wubl.ei?" asked
Blount.
"Have you got two others?" inquired
G!ossmore.
"Yes," replied Blount. "Flat and Green."
"Bad players," said his 1 rdahip,
"I make it a wu'e to play with bad
players; it is five per ceut. in oik's favor,"
murmured Blount, wisely, "t hate gambling. But a quiet wubber, if one is the lies'
player out of four, can't do one  any harm."
This remarkable speech of the eccentric
young baronet created a little remark on all
sides. Th" murmurs were dying away as
the waiters cine and removed some coffee
cups, and other little from the table*. Then
Glossmore said in his usual self assertive
way���
"Clever fellow that Blount."
That "clever fellow Blount," unconsciously at that moment imitated or emulated
Mr. Stout, for he carried the snuff box away
from the old member, who as UBual looked
savagely at the transgressor.
