The Siege Raised.
Rio Janeiro, Jan. 16.���The minister of
foreign affairs, aoting for President Peixoto,
authorized the representative of the United
PresB to send the following: "The siege of
Bage, by the insurgent forces has been
raised. Afier the rebels had reaisted for
eighteen days the sorties of the Gov* rnmeut
i roups, who are commanded by General
Carlos Tellea, the latter made a final sortie
and put the insurgents to fl ght. It
was a complete route for the insurgents, who abandoned their baggage and
munitions of war. The government loss was
36 killed and 90 wounded. The insurgents
lost 400 killed and many wounded. Two
days after the battle, one of the two columns
th.t had beeu despatched to the relief of
Bage, arrived at that town. The relieving
party at once started in pursuit of the insurgents, but it is understood did not succeed in catching jip with the main body of
insurgents. Many of the latter deserted.
It was found that the insurgents
had sacked several houses and several
men were found with their throats cut.
Two government soldiers, who had been
captured by the enemy, were burned alive.
General Carneiro, who is on the frontier between the states of Parana and Sabta Cat-
arina reoenily fought an engagement with
the insurgents and defeated them. The
British steam-r Hilda which haB arrived
here from Porto Alegro, capital of the State
of Rio Grande Do Sul, reports that the government is in undisturbed possession of the
coast of that state."
FIRE IN VICTORIA.
Mr. J. Sehl's  Fine   Residence at Laurel
Point Destroyed.
VICTORIA, Jan.   16.���[Special]���The palatial residence   of Jacob   Sehl, for years  an
ornament of Laurel point, admired alike by
citizens and   travellers entering  the harbor,
last evening   became a thing  of  the past, a
two hours' tire reducing  it to a smouldering
I heap of   HfheR   and  involving a loss of up-

LONDON, Jan, 16.���The Mai quia of Lome   consideration of the complete disappearance
of the household   goods  collected  in a lifetime.
The house destroyed was one of the finest
iu the city, both in the beauty of its outside
appearanoe and in the elfgaoce aud completeness of the furnish ngs, and it was also
one of the largest private residences of
which Victoria can boast. It was built
*bout Beveu years ago from designs made by
the aichiteet of the theatre, who persuaded
Mr. Sehl into allowing him while here to
make the plans for a palatial residence. It
was built of wood up m foundations of stone
and biick, st.ning upon the solid rock of
the point. The oost was $25,000. The fur-
nielii* gj are value I at about $7,000 or
$8,000, and it ia not at all improbable that
when everything is counted up this will be
found within the mark. The insurance is
810 000 on the house and $3,000 on the fur-
niehings. The companies interested are the
Liverpool, London k Globe, and the Western.
Later estimates of loss by the fire, which
yesterday destroyed Jacob Sehl's palatial
home, is $29,000, on which there is $13,000
insurance. During the tire a 30 mile gale
rayed and the escape of surrounding property is little less than marvelous.
Ernest Bodwell is spoken of as a candidate for the Provincial Parliament in Cowichan district. Premier Davie's present constituency at the approaching general election. This is taken to mean that Davie
will run in Victoria City, and that in event
of a Government victory Bodwell be the new
attorney general, the Premier taking other
portfolios Bodwell, though young aB a
lawyer, ranks second to none in the province, he has not yet sought political distinction, hut comes of a family prominently
connected with public affairs in the Dominion.

London, Jan. 16.���A dispatch to the
Central News from Rome savs: A squadron of cavalry patrolling Mania aud Carrara
had an encounter to day with a band of anarchists SCO Btrong, who were apparently
engaged in destroying the Fassola bridge.
The anarchists stood their ground until several were killed or wounded, and then fled.
They were pursued by the cavalry and
finally dispersed. K ght persons altogether
were killed and limn >ers were wounded.
Arroog the wounded are many soldiers.
Many arrests were made.
5,000 Workmen Strike.
Roue, Jan. 16.*���About Ave thousand
working men have struck in Massa and
Carrara. Both towns are occupied by
troops and all the shops are closed. The
iuhbitants are frightened and many families
are provisioning their houses as if for a
siege. Bands of revolters parade the roads
making requisitions on the people for arms
and food. A three o'clock this afternoon
the people of Massa were thrown into a
state of consternation by hearing a
fuailade in the hills near by a
squadron of cavahy had eucouutered
a mob of 300 men at the Fassola bridge about
two kilouicie sfrom Massa. Altera stubborn
tight the mob waa dieperaed. Many were
wounded and several were killed. Troops
guard the railway at all points to prevent
the tearing up of the rails. Some soldiers
are in active pursuit of bands in the mountains. The cabinet council has given
Premier Crispi a free hand as to the time
when he shall declare the province of Massa
and Carrara in a state of siege. The pro
clamation will be issued to morrow unless
the situation improves in the meantime.
Engagement of Nictheroy.
Rio Janeiro, Jan. 16.���Last evening the

National League held in this city to-day,
Mr. Leamy, ex-editor of United Ireland,

in referring to the report of the Britiah Consul at Chicago says: The British Colonies

reef at the entrance to Honolulu harbor for
over a mouth, but eventually successfully
floated hy Captain Metcalf, Lloyd's agent
here. The steamer left Honolulu ou the
5th instant, one day before the Australian
and consequently brings no news of importance,
American ship Charmer arrived from New
York to-duy with general cargo having
made the voyage in one hundred and thirty
two days. She reports having seen nothing
of ships Louisiana, Isaac Reed, George
Curtis, Manuel Ilaguno and Alameda, all of
which are long overdue.
Six persons had a moat miraculous escape from instant death thia morning about
6 o'clock. About 500 tons of rock which
had been loosened by the rains of yesterday
came down from Telegraph hill with a rush
on a two story home occupied by Peter
Brown, Iub wife aud three children and a

Iu regard to the item published in a local
paper Saturday last, that the ex-Queen of
Hawaii had given up the contest for her
throne aod would sue the United States for
damages, Samuel Parker, prime minister of
the queen has wired Secretary Gresham
denying these assertions in toto. Both
Parker and W. C. Peterson, ex queeu's attorney-general, slate that they saw Liliuokalani half au hour before they sailed from
Honolulu on the ss. Australia and she was
very firm iu her determination to maintain
her claim to her throne. The possibility of
presenting a claim for damages had never
been mentioned.

whom he li ��d seen in conversation with
Sioretary Furuseth, of the Coast Seamen's
Union. This fact was communicated to the
chief of police, and on enquiry it was found
to be a scheme to get Heurickson rut of the
way, while Hans-m's trial, whioh takes place
today, proceeded.
The Origin of Junius Discovered at the

It appears that the famous Junius letters
were written by Sir Philip Francis, whose
grandson in Australia has just offered the

In the i hic.go Tribune of  a rt-oenl da e,
there is an   aooouut   uf   a coluo.ns' leng h,
concerning   the   dealings of  a oatskiu iner-
chant in the city of Axuuge wi*h genii-men

such as Su    Fi .nc boo, New Y.-r . aod sveu

It appears that these expert sin IH r�� *le-
ceive themaelven as readily as'lny unuld

sable hue is readily met by ti e handier.*!'
of the dy. r; and it appears that some of
these kn ghis of the card table are so exita-
vagant at. to have aud wear a separate skin
for each day iu lhe week.
Should a successful chance-demon die,
there is a msh on the past of his surviving
brethren Insecure his masootio remains,
bidding and paying ex'Tbiiaut amounts for
them, and this piesumably, even bad he
died of a lo-.* hsonie disease. There would
still he fickle fortune's virtue in it I The
dealer does not defend the eu-torn fiom an
ethical point of view, but he skips back
some centuries to when E^-ypt worshipped
the cat, and gives that as some sort of a
reason why the akin of the latter-day, or
night, felines, should possess some fetisn-
value for men (?) living in the eve of the
twentieth century.
It may be argued in defence that they
who live on chances, are the most likely, as
a class, to indulge iu such witless whims,
and that they form but a small part, of the
whole. But, in s**me form or another,
this new reading of U. S. i amities
through the whole of the Stars and Siriiei
country���social and constitutional. From
those men who would probably kick a cat
were it alive and iu thter way, yet wear its
skin as a fate pro ector, to young ladies in
sociey wiih coverings to be circled iu the
four-hundred chat in, is a far cry and long
way, yet thay are alike in their petisli
worship.
Another American writer recently wrote,
that most society girls were in possession of
a St. Joseph's image f'*r the propitiation of
a speedy marriage and a good husband. One
young lady of fashion had set up a shrine of
several grotesque idols and heaihen images,
which she sacrificed to ��iih trifles of candy,
flowers and In s of monev. This same fin tie
Steele young person, had the rattle of a
snake which was killed afier sundown, also
a precious bit of hangman's rope within her
jewelled watch case. And this is a daugh'er
of the great republic!
Surely the strain of the Pilgrim Fathers
and the early Puritans must be getting thin
in these days. A re urn of that "simple
faith" which is better than Norman blood
should be welcomed in these times of gnat
straining aft* rj superstitions and camel
swallowing of utter foolishuess. The girl at
VaaBar, the student at Harvard, the broker
in Wall street and the jetsam and flotsam in
the Bowery seem all alike impregnated
by this empirical humbug. A man of millions in ascending steps will descend again
if he forgot to put his left foot on the first
step, and a beggar will refuse a gratuity
from a man who squints; and so the all-prevailing feeling of superstition runs up and
down the whole social gamut.
For this, Borne fiction ia largely responsible, while the general press is not altogether tree from blame, in its expression
and writing up of auch Btuff-not always in
a satirical vein. There ia usually a lurking
Buspicion that the writer, whether he or she,
ia not wholly free from this m ntal manacling.
Of oourse it is admitted unreservedly that
the United States, as a country, is not the
only one given up to this lat terday idolatry,
but she is fast becoming the centre and
home for faking of unlimited kind. Charlatans and mountebanks of all varieties, life-
readers and phrenological fakirs of many
phases Beem to find the readiest response*
and an abiding place in the proverbial "land
oi the free."
To the average mind which holds its
sanity and finds ns sufficiency in the "daily
round and common task" lived purely and
worked rightly, Mr. Stead and his Julia,
MrB. Beaant and her ast nil bodies and the
canonizing of Joan of Arc by a number of
cultured men, is all of a piece and on a par
with the mascot and the gambler, and the
Bociety girl with hei   shrine for matrimony.
No country ia wholly free from the die-
ease���for it ia a disease���but the United
States is becoming, if not already become,
most unusually, unwarrantably, and un-
wholesomely tainted with a mental corruption, which will make it likely for the
initials U. S. to be rendered and read as
Uniquely Supeistitious.

William II. Ir Potting il Not Extreme-
The Toronto Week says tfcatj a less imposing picture of ninetc nth.^lmcbt the twentieth
century, of rojnlty than that preseDted by the
recent cablegrams of the Emperor of Germany standing on the threshold of his mansion, wi h his wife and family looking from
the windows, and slaughtering hundreds of
almost tame partridges aB they were driven
before him by a detachment of soldiers, it
would be hard to imagine.

True, But, in These Times Hard.
Mr Fletcher, the editor cf tlio Daily
Chronicle London, has been speaking on the
���subject of "Christian Ethics and Practical
Polities." Mr. Fletcher is reported to have
Baid, with emphasis: "You can govern ui
accordance with Ihe principle** laid down by
Jesus Christ in the Sermon on the Mou it���
the charter of man's redemption which lie
sealed with Hia blood���and it is only in so
far aB you cau honestly attempt to do so that
you can hope to arrive at anything like a
civilized order of things."
Tebele or Not Tebele.
In the Revue Ghretienne, Paris, for December, Mr. F. H. Kiuger, who seems to
understand the subject thoroughly, gives an
account���not at ull complimentary to the
British���of the origin of the war, and of the
tribe againBt whom it is waged. He tells
us that in Great Britain and the United
States the name of the tribe is invariably
written erioneously. The speech of the
tribe belongs to what is called the Bantu
family of languages, which distinguish the
singular and plural of substantiatives by
prefixes. The singular of "the" in Tebele
iB ou. The plural of ou is ma. Therefore
maTebele���which ought always to be thus
written���means men of tho tribe of Tebele.
They should be spoken of in English as the
Tebele or Tebeles. If you say the maTebele
you double the article.

A civil war is in progress between Nicaragua and Honduras, and San Salvador

in consiquence. These Spanish republics
are wonderful instituiions, and very fertile
in civil wars. They alto, most of them,

they cimfined their attention to cultivating
it and let civil wars alone. The republicans of the peninsula want to H-. tup a republic in old Spain also, though if
the people there had but the
wisdom to know it, the king and hiB mother
are much cheaper, and their government just
as good. But we suppose the Spaniards,
like other people, can ouly be taught by experience, and, as appears to be the case,
scarcely even by that.

CORRESPONDENCE SOLICITED
President   Dole's   reply to the polite  request sent to him and the Provisional   Gov-
ernmentat Honolulu by President Cleveland,
through Minister Willis, to step  down  and
out and   m*vke   way for the   restoration   of
Queen    Liliuokalani,   is   an   extraordinary
state paper to emanate from the  hi ad of an
assumed   independent   Government.      The
first paragraph of the reply is simply a plea
for annexation by the United  States, proving conclusively  that Dole aud his  Government consist of a gang of American annexationists,   placed   in    power    by   Minister
Stevens   with   Ihe   help  of a company of
marines  drawn by him   from  an  American
ship of war on substantially false pretences.
The native  Hawaiians do not  Beem to have
had anything to do with  the  overthrowing
of the  queen.    It  was  evidently,   as  Mr.
Blount stated in his  report, the  work of a
gang   of   American    sjmpithisers,   mostly
themselves  Americas, aided  and  directed
by Stevens, the American minister.    It was
to   undo as far as may be this   wrong committed   against a friendly   Government   by
the American minister, who did not scruple
to use the   troops of the   Uuited   States to
carry out the purpo.es <*f  himself  and  his
fellow-com-pirators,   that   President Cleveland has been  struggling.    By   acting   the
part of an   upright   ruler in this   mat t >r, a
ruler who respects Ihe rights and independence of a neighboring state   however   weak,
President Cleveland has brought down upon
his head the loud abuse of  all   the  jingoes,
swashbuckler,    aud    blackguards   in   the
United   States,   and    their    co'nget.ers   in
Hawaii.    Among   the latter   must   now be
classed President Dole and his  government.
Mr. Dole in his reply expresses the deep disappointment of the Provisional Government,
that the proposition for   the   annexation of
Hawaii by the   United   States, which   had
been favorably rec-ived by President Harrison's administration, was rejected by President   Cleveland; and   goes on to  say   that
while      accepting      this      as      the     final
conclusion of the Cleveland administration,
he refuses to accept it  as  the last  word of
the American  government.    This president
of a pretended independent republic  argues
vigorously that the  mutual  relations of the
two  countries, their  geographical  position
and past history, all point  with  convincing
force   to political   union  as  the  inevitable
result.
In support of this view Mr. Dole refers to
the opinions of prominent American statesmen, including the late James G. Blaine;
and says that his government will continue
to make the project of political union with
the United States a conspicuous feature of
their foreign policy, hoping that sooner or
later it will be accomplished. In other
-words President Dole and his colleagues expect that the next Republican administration will do what President Cleveland's administration refuses���thnt is to annex the
islands. In the meantime he refuses to
recognize the right of ihe president of the
United States to interfere in the domestic
affairB of his government. In conclusion
President Dole respectfully and unhesitatingly declines to entert in the propositi.in
of President Cleveland, 1 hat the provisional
government should surrender its authority
to the ex-queen. The matter is now in the
hands of Congress. Minister Willis has
been instructed to keep the state department informed of the course of events, and
until further notice to consider that his
special instructions have been fully complied
with. There can be no doubt of the uprightness of President Cleveland's policy and intentions throughout this whole troublesome
business, and we think Ihat it iB equally
certain that his policy is approved by all
the best elements of the American nation.
It remains to be seen whether Congress will
support the president, or whether it will
bow to the clamor of the American jingoes
We shall not take upon ourselves to say
what the result will be; but this we do say,
that it will not be for the credit of the
United States if President Cleveland's
honorable polioy is not sustained.
The tiovKRNOR of Alaska is said to be
moving to put down the praetioe, heretofore very common in that territory, of white
men openly oohabiting with native women.
Mr. Sheaky, the governor, iB a family man
and a Presbytsrian, and looks' upon such
open and shameless immorality as an abomination that ought not to be tolerated. Ho
is said to have made up his mind to enforce
the laws in this particular. 'All God-fearing
people will wish Governor Sheaky success
in his "squaw crusade."
A debi'Atcii from Cape Town received in
London confirms the news of the massacre
of Captain VVilsou's party by the Matabeles.
"The British force," says the despatch,
"succumbed after a desperate struggle.
They resisted to the last and many Matabeles were killed, but their numbers were
so great that the resistance on the part of
the small but valorous British force was of
no avail." They were all slain to a man.
It will now be the business of the British to
avenge them, and utterly to subvert the
power of the Matabeles and of Lo Bengula,
their king. Under ordinary circumstances
to do so, might be wrong, but tbe Matabeles
have exercised their power over the native
tribes which they conquered in a manner so
cruel and bloodthirsty, that it is a service
to humanity to put an end to it.

A severe storm of wind prevailed on
Monday and Monday night in Vic'oria and
around it, both on land sea. Some damage
was done to shipping, but how much is not
yet known. The gile damaged considerably the telegraph and electrio light wires,
and demoralized the telephone service. The
only telegraph wire left working was that
to Otter Point, and it worked but badly.
Considerable damage was done to houses
and fences. The round house of the E. &
N. Railway was blown down. Several trees
too were blown acr<*ss thi track. The damage done to the Russell station neighborhood
alone is estimated at from $1,000 to 31,500.
The Chemaous and Koksilah rivers are much
swollen. Cars are, however, running both
ways on the E. k N, Railway. The storm
reached its height about 0 o'clock on Mon
day night and was succeeded by a dead
calm.    No loss of life is reported.

The insurgents and the PeixotoistB keep
"pegging away" at each other in Brazil with
praiseworthy industry; but the artillerymen on both Bides are such marvellously
bad i-hots that but little damage seems to be
done beyond waste of powder, save when
Peixoto gets some of his enemies into bis
hands. Then he Ijas them ranged np in a
row and shot promptly by his troops at close
quartern. An especially savage execution
of some young naval cadets, who had revolted, or were suspected of an intention of
joining the rebel fleet, was reported
some days ago. Admiral Mello's
flag ship iB again in the harbor of Rio, having sailed past Peixoto's batteries without
Bustaining damage, aB he did before when
making his escupe from Rio harbour. These
Brazilian gunners would probably not hit a
h-tystaek if it Was floating past. The
Nictheroy is repotted to beunseaworthy, its
officers inefficient, aud its men badly treated
and discontented. On both sides they are
boasting what great things they are going

WELLINGTON ITEMS.
It was  pay-day at the  mines   yesterday.
The company is pmting down a sidewalk in
front of their houses, whioh was badly
needed.
The death rate in Union during the year
1893 was about 1 per cent. Union is certainly strength.
At the Methodist concert tho Rev. Maitland of Nanaimo was chairman, Mrs. Leighton of Nanaimo was the leading vooalint,
Mrs. Patton of Wellington being the fair
accompanist.
St. Matthews' church wis packed to the
doors on Monday evening to witness the
oeremony of confirmation by Bishop Perrin.
His Lordship spoke very feelingly and gave
some excellent advice to those who had been
confirmed.
Mr. John Matthews, on behalf of the
parishioners, presented the Rev. Flinton,
who is retiring from the parish, with a valedictory address and a purse of money. In
reply Mr. Flinton thanked them very much
for their kindness; adding that he was loth
to leave Wellington, as he had not only
built up the churoh to its present efficiency
from a congregation of only three, but had
also the tie of hia child having been born
there.    Mr. Flinton leaves to-day.
The basket social given by the Finlandors
in their hall on Saturday euening was a decided success, both in attendance and financially. The auctioneer ably wielded the
hammer, disposing of the many articles on
���ale in an incredibly short space of time.
Fishing then came in order; our correspondent catching a rusty jack-knife and a secondhand neoktie on his hook. The band playing Beverel airs closed the first part of the
entertainment. Dancing was then begun
and kept up till the hour when witches wtlk
and graveyards yawn; then the baskets
were opened and the edibles brought forth
being duly discussed and digested, thus
ending a very pleasan . gathering.

A Tribute in Type.
We ought not to let the occasion pass
without paying a tribute in type to Constable Gibbs, who so magnanimously advocated hiB brother constable's claim for preferment in place of himself at the City Council meeting on Monday night. Constable
Gibbs said, that if one man waB considered
enongh, he hoped the Counoil would prefer
Constable Brown us he had two children to
keep while he, Gibhs, would find work elsewhere. As such instances of personal repression are rare, it becomes b ith our duty
and pleasure as fellow citizens to note such.

Horse-power of a Whalo.
Tbe horse-power of a whulo seems almost
as funny ns lhe horse power of a donkey
engine, but an interesting study of the
horse-power of the whale has been made by
the eminent anatomist, Sir William
Turner of the University of Edinburgh,
Scotland, in conjunction with John Henderson, the well-known Glasgow shipbuilder. The size and dimensions of a
great whale stranded several years ago on
the shore at Longriddy furnished the neces
sary data for the computation of the power
necessary to propsl'it at the rate of twelve
miles an hour. This whale measured RO feet
in length, 20 feet across the flanges of the
tail, and weighed 74 tons. It was calculated that 145 horse-power was necessary to
attain the speed mentioned.
m
The Colonist of yesterday saya: The
rumor has been current for some days to tbe
effeot that negotiations are pending between
the Canadian Pacifio Railway Company and
the promoters of tbo Victoria and Sidney
road, the result of which will be a combination of interests, whereby C. P. R. business will be handled over the Viotoria road
in connection with the new steamers from
tbe Mainland. Parties interested in the
looal road decline to speak for the present,
but should there be any foundation in fact
in the rumor, it must soon materialize, for
oonatruotion work of the V. k S. line is all
out completed, the rails yesterday having
been laid to the briokyard. This makes the
ine continuous between that point and Sidney, and the remainder of the work will be
pushed along without delay.

to leave the employ of the New Vancouver
Coal Company. He has been granted leave
of absence for a few months, to prosecute
Borne private interests, and will, early in
the spring, go up to live upon his ranch at
Errington. We regret the error into which
we were led, and gladly give publicity to
this correction.

OVER THE BOUNDARY.
Hackensaok, N. J., Jan. 15.���The ac-
comniodttii*H train from South Orange, N.
J., crashed into the rear of an express train
from Dover, which had slackened spied on
account of the fog. Two cars of the express
were telescoped, aud fifteen passengers in
these cars were known lo have been killed,
and twenty-five are terribly mangled. The
shrieks of the wounded could be heard for a
long dis*mice aud the greatest excitement
prevailed. The express usually stops at
Roseville, but this morning, owing to the
fog, she ran by ao slowly that she wus
boarded by some 50 of the residents of
Roseville, who were waiting on the South
Orange accommodation. Most of those who
boarded the train were men doing business
in New York, and the dead and injured consist chiefly of these passengers.
A woman who claims to be the widow of
Charles Stewart Parnell is living in Opelika,
Ala., having come there several months ago,
she says, to escape the persecutions of her
enemies. She appears to be well supplied
with money, but nobody seems to know
whet e she came from.
Boys playing near PleaBantville, 0, discovered in an old culvert a robbers' den.
Nearly a peek of watches and chains, jewelry, silverware and money was found.
There is no trace of the robbers. The property has nearly all been restored to owners
in variouij parts ot the country.
The commercial cable to-day paid off
$400,000 of bonds in New York, being the
remainder of its original issue of 13,000,000,
whioh has been retired out of the surplus
earnings.
Geo ge Ho^sworlh was accidently shot at
Stockton, Cal., late last Saturday afternoon
by his -ixteen year obi son. The two were
out bunting, 'he son raised his gun to shoot:
aud it was piematurely discharged, the load
of shot entering the right leg of the older
Holsworth, a little below the hip. Amputation may be necessary.
In  order to close it out I have decided to
reduce the price

THE LOVERS' STRATAGEM
(By Eric St. 0. K. Ross.)
CHAPTER I
(OONTINUEI))
At this moment her father was heard ball-
ing���"(Jeorgy, I nay."
"Yes, papa/' she returned, and hurried
ou' to him.
Kvelyn seated himself again at tho table,
but on i his nee isiou at I he 8*d** fan best from
the centre of ihe room. He was l*y un menus
iu an enviable mood, and leaned his face
upon his hands.
Clara now drew from her purse some bank
notes, and was examining th��m, when L*dy
Franklin returned and leant over her sweet
compHuioti's Hhnulder.
"His noble spirit bowed to this," murmured Clara, "Ah! a' leasi here I may give
him comf ii *t," and she sit down to write
Then she halted abiu|*t!y saying:���"But he
will r cognise m*J hand."
"What bill are you , aying, Cl-.ru';" asked
Lady Franklin, sof ly, toying with a banknote. "Going to Bend this away?" "Hu-h!"
murmured Clara, drawing ihe lady away
fiom Evelyn's vi inily. "0**1 L dy Franklin." she ailded, "you are the kindest of
human beings. This is for a poor person,
I would not have her know whence it
came or she would refuse it. Would
you? No,���he knows her handwriting
also !"
"Will I���what?" asked Lady Franklin,
"give the money myself?���with pleasure'
Poor Clara���Why this covers all your savings, and I am so rich!"
"Nay, I would wish to do all myself!"
returned Clara. "It is a pride���a riu'y���t
is a joy; and I have so few joys! But hush!
���this way."
And she drew Lady Franklin into the
next room, and had some conversation in a
low tone, while Evelyn, thinking himself
alone raised his head and almost murmured
aloud���
"And thus must I grind out my life for
ever!���I am ambitious, and poverty drags
me down���I have learning, and poverty
makes me the drudge of fools!���I love, and
poverty stauds like a spectre before the
altar! But, no, no���if, as 1 believe, I am
but loved again, I will���will���what?���turn
opium-eater, aud dream of the K.lun I may
never enter!"
"But Evelyn must be sure not to know I
sent the money to his nurse," said Clara returning with Lady Franklin.
"Never fear," returned the elder lady, I
will get my maid to copy aud ditect this���
she writes well, and her hand will never be
discovered. I will have it done and sent
instantly."
And the good-natured lady retired upon
her kindly mission. A Bervant now announced Si*-Frederick Blount aud retired.
Clara had seated herself by the table near
the centre of the room. The Baronet, was
a dandy of the first water, with light hair,
a receding forehead, and an eye-glass. The
reader will have gathered something of his
character from Lidy Franklin's mimicry.
His clothes were as gaudy as an aoknow
lodged member of a good family might weir.
The coat had broad silk braid round its
edges, he wore a tremendously large gold
cable chain across his huff waistcoat, his
trousers were of the very lightest tweed,
and of a good pronounced shepherd check
pattern, while his fingers were covered wiih
glittering rings.
"No oue in the woom," he lisped, as he
came in, and Clara rose and stood close
beside her chair. "Oh! Miss Douglas!" he
went ou. "P*v��y d m't let me disturb you.
Where is Miss Vesey���Goorgina?" aud as he
spoke he coolly appropriated Clara's chair
and sat down, whereupon Evelyn, who was
enraged, handed the young lady another
chair, and muttered betwueu his teeth,
"Insolent puppy!" The three were now
seated.
"Ah! Sir Frederick," said Clara, "shall I
tell her you are here?"
"Not for the world," cried the baronet.
"Vewy pwetty girl this companion!"
"What did yt*u think of tho panorama
the other day, coubio Evelyn?" asked Clara.
Evelyn here read aloud���
���'I cannot talk with civet in the room,
A fine puss gtntleuiati that's all perfume!"
"Rather good lines these."
"Sir!" cried Sir Frederick, rising.
"Don't you thiuk so?" asked Evelyn, offering him the book, and adding in an explanatory tone, "Oowper."
"Cowper!" echoed Sir Frederick, declining the book.
"Cowper!" repeated Evelyn, solemnly.
"Strange person, Mr. Evelyn," said Sir
Frederick, shrugging his shoulders, to Clara.
"Quite a chawaoier! Indeed the panowama
gives you uo idea of Naples���a delightful
place. I make a wule to go there evewy
second year. I am vewy fon I of twin oiling.
You'd like Wome (Rome)���bad InnB, but
vewy fine wuins; gi*e you quite a taste for
thst nor' "f thing."
Here Evelyn again read aloud���
"Itovv much a dunce who has been sent to roam
Exoels a dunce that has been kept at home,"
"Sir!" cried Blount indignantly, rising
again.
"Cowper!" returned Evelyn, offering the
hook.
"That fellow Cowper says vewy odd
things," cried Sir Frederick. "Humph! It
is beneath me to quawwnll. It will not
take long to wead the will, I suppose," he
proceeded to Clara, and quite iguar.ng
Evelyn. "Poor old Mordaunt, I am his
nearest male we.lation. He was vewy eccen-
twic. By the way, Miss Douglas, did you
ever wetnawk my cuwickle?" He now approached the young girl closer, and became,
if possible, more condescending and familiar.
"It is bwinging cuwickles again in fashion.
I should-be most happy if you will allow me
to dwive you out. Nay, nay, I should, upon
my word, and he endeavored very awkwardly, but not the less earnestly, to take
her hand as a servrnt entered and aaid���
"Sir John will be happy to see you in his
study, Sir Frederick;" and having made the
announcement, he retired.
"Vewy well!" exclaimed Sir Frederick.
Then he murmured to himself, "Upon my
word, there is something vewy nice about
this girl." Having delivered himself of so
muoh, he made a few stammering steps in
the direction of the door, and then proceed
ed with his method of self-communing���"To
be sure I love Geoigina, but if this one
wou d take a fancy lo me ��� " Here he
paused thoughtfully, and then aided,
"Weil! I dop't see what harm it could do
me! Au plaisir!" And away he went
���tumbling over the rug near the threshold
in his uuueavor tn walk with becoming
dignity.
CHAP1ER II.
THK  OLD,   OLD  STORY.
Alfred Evelyn g I up with an air of relief,
ai.u Clara ulereii a sign "signifying the
same," as the fash onable Sir Frederick left
ihe room. After this there was a lengthened
Mil. nee which was at last broken by Evelyn,
saying in a low tone of voice���"Claro!"
"Cousin!" was the young girl's reply.^JJ
"And you, too, are a dependent," he said.
"But on Lady Franklin, who seeks to
make me forget it," returned Clara.
"Ah, but can the worldlforget it?" cried
Evc'yu. ''This iis'ilent condiscension; thiB
c ixcinibry of admiration; more galling than
the arrug nice of contempt. Look you now,
robe beauty in silk and cashm. re; hand virtue into her chariot; lackey their caprices;
wrap them from the winds; fence them
round with a golden circle, and virlue and
beauty are as woman's holiest blessings.
Strip them of the adjuncts; see beauly .md
virtue poor, dependent, solitary, walking
the world defenceless; of), then the devotion
changes its diameter; the same crowd
gather eagerly around���fools, fopi, libertines���not to wotship at the Bhrine, but to
sacrifice the victim!"
"My cousin, you are cruel!" exclaimed
Mits Douglas. "1 can smile at the pointless insolence���"
"Smile," he murmured; "and he toik
your hand! Oh, Clara, you know not the
tortures that I suffer hourly! When others
approach you���young, fair, rich���the sleek
darling of the world; I accuse you of yjur
very beauty���I w> ithe bene nth every smile
that you bestow," Here Clara was about
to speak. "No, speak not! mv heart hit*
broken its silence and you shall hear the
rest. For you I have endured the weary
bondage of this house; the fool's gibe; the
hireling's sneer; the bread, purchased by
toila that should have led me to loftier ends.
Yes, to see you���hear you���breathe the
same air���be ever at hand���that if otherB
slighted, from one, at least, you might receive the luxury of respect���for this���for
this I have lingered, suffered and forborne.
Oh, Clara! we are orphans boih���friendless
both;, you are all in the world to me! Turn
not away; my very soul speaks in these
words���I love you."
"No, Evelyn���Alfred. No!" she cried.
"Say it not���think it not���it were madness."
"Madness!" he echoed. "Nay, hear me
me yet. I am poor, penniless; a beggar for
bread to a dying servant. True! But I
have a heart of iron! I have knowledge,
patience, health, aud my love for you gives
me at last ambition. I have trilled with
my own energies till now, for I despised all
things till I loved the". With you to toil
for, you step to support, your path to
smooths; and I���I, poor Alfred Evelyn,
promise to win for you at laBt rven fame
and fortune!" Here he took her hand. ''Do
not withdraw your hand; this hand���shall
it not be mine?"
"Ah, Evelyn," she murmured. "Never!
never!"
"Never!" he cried in amazement.
"Forget this folly," she entreated, "our
union is impossible, and to talk of love were
to deceive Goth."
"Because I am poor?" he exclaimed bitterly.
"And I, too!" she cried. "A marriage of
privation, of penury, of days that dread the
morrow. I have seen such a lot. Never
return to this again."
"Enough, you are obeyed," he said sadly.
"I deceived myself; ha! ha! I fancied that
I too was loved. I, whose youth is already
half gone with care and toil; whose mind is
soured, whom nobody can lore; who ought
to have loved no one."
"And if it were only I to suffer, or perhaps to starve," she murmured to herself.
"Oh, what shall I say?" she added aloud.
"Evelyn, cousin?"
"Madam."
"Alfred-I-I-"
"Reject me," he murmured.
"Yob! It is past," she moaned, and hurried out of the room.
"Let me think," he murmured, sinking
into a chair. "It was yesterday her hand
trembled when mine touched it. And the
rose I gave her; yes, she pressed her lips to
it once when she teemed as if she stw me
not. But it was a trap, a trick, for I was
just sb poor then as now. This v ill be a
jest for them all! Well, courage! It is but
a poor heart that a coquette's contempt can
break."
As he spoke he went up behind the table
and took another ohair, as a servant entered,
ushering in Lord Glossmore.
"I will tell Sir John, my lord," said the
servitor, going out at the inner door.
Evelyn took up a newspaper as the peer
moved a chair away from his neighborhood,
and murmured���
"The secretary, hum!" Then aloud, he
said patronizingly���"Fine day, sir. Any
news from the East?"
"Yes," returned Evelyn, who never could
resist a good opening, "alt the wise men
have gone back there "
Mi. Sout was at this moment announced
by in o her footman.
"Ha! ha!" laughed the peer. "You are
wrong, for here comes Mr. Stout, the great
political economist."
As he spoke, Mr. Stout, a very portly
nnd decided looking man indeed, came
heavily forward, saying���"Good morning,
Glossmore."
"Glossmore!" murmured the peer, indignant at the familiarity of the other. "The
parvenu!"
"Afraid I might be late, been detained at
the vestry," explained Stout. "Astonishing
how ignorant the English poor arc! Took
me an hour aud a half to beat it into the
head of a stup'd old widow with nine
ohildren that to allow her throe shillings a
week was against the rules of public
morality!"
"Excellent!" cried Evelyn. "Admirable!
your hand, sir!"
"What! you approve of such dootrineB,
Mr. Evelyn?" exclaimed Lord Glossmore.
"Are old women only fit to be starved?"
"Starved?" cried Evelyn, "popular delusion! Observe, my lord, to squander money
upon those who starve is only to afford encouragement to starvation."
"A very superior person that," remarked
Mr. Stout.
"Atrocious principles!" oried Lord Glossmore. "Give me the good old times when
it was the duty of the rich to succor the distressed."
"On seoond thoughts, you are right, my
lord," Evelyn oontinued. "I, too, hnow a
poor woman, ill, dying, in want. Shall she,
too, perish?"
"Perish! horrible! in a Christian country. Perish! heaven forbid!" said his lordship.
"What then will you give her?" asked
Evelyn, holding out his hand.
"Enem! Sir, the p.risti ought to give,"
returned his lordship.
"By no means," shouted Stout.
"By all means," cried Glossmore.
"No, no, no. Certainly no.!" shouted Mr.
St 'ti', with great vehemence.
"No, no! But I say yes, yes!" persisted
the peer. "And if the pari-h refuse to
maintain the pour, the only way 1. ft tn a
man of firmness aud resolution, holding the
principles that I do, and adhering to the
constitution of our fathers, iB to force the
poor on the pirish by never giving them a
farthing oneself."
'No, no," proceeded Mr. Stout.
"Yes, yes," cried the peer.
"Gentlemen, perhaps Sir John will decide," said Evelyn.
As he spuke. Sir Johu and otherB were
heard approaching
CHAPTER III.
'OLD  MoRDAI NTS  WILL.
Lady Franklin approached majestically
and graceful.y on her brother's arm. After
them came Georgina, atlended by Sir
Fredertok Blount, who every moment
seemed about to trip himself up by treading
upun her train In (heir wake followed a
page who unfairly withdre ���*.*, presumably
satisfied thai his mistress was no longer in
danger of being Bwampcd by the young
baronet whoso sight was no doubt obscured
hy his eye glass. "How d'ye, do ! Ah !"
cried Sir John. "How d'ye do, genllemen ?
Ah, Stout. I This a most melancholy meetiug ! The poor deceased ! ���what a man he
was !"
"I was chwis'ened Fwedewick afier him!"
taid Blount.    "He was my Hist cousin."
"Aud Georg na his owu niece���next of
kin!" exclaimed Sir John���"an excellent
man, though odd���a kind heart, but no
liver! I sent, him twice ayear thirty dozen
of the Cheltenham waters. It's a confort to
reflect on theae little attentions at such a
time."
"And I, too, sent him the Parliamentary
Debates regularly, hound in calf," was Mr.
Stout's remark. "He was my second cousin
���sensible man���and a follower of Mali bus;
never married to increase the surplus popular inn, and fritter away his money on his
children.    Aud now "
"He reaps the benefit of celibacy iu tho
prospective gratitude of every cousin he had
in the world !" said Evelyn.
"Ha! ha! ha!" laughed Lidy Franklin.
"Hush! hush! decency, Lady Franklin;
decency! cried Sir John.
A servant at this juncture announced���
"Mr Graves.    Mr. Sharp."
"Oh! here's Mr. Graves," exclaimed Sir
John. "And that's Mr. Sharp who brought
the will from Calcutta." Mr. Graves, attired as usual in funeral looking black, approached in a very melancholy manner. Mr.
Sharp seemed to be as sharp as his name,for
as soon as he appeared to have mastered the
"bearings" of the room, he went straight to
the sofa, aud began to prepare his papers
for the interesting ceremony about to he enacted. Meantime Sir John took Mr. Graves
by the hand, and said���
"Ah! sir. Ah! Mr. Graves!" while
Georgina with admirable feeling and forethought raised her handkerchief to her eyes.
"A sad occasion," proceeded Sir John.
"But everythiug in life is sad," moaned
Mr. Graves, as two servants came in with
wine and other light refreshments, which
they proceeded to hand round, beginning at
Lady Franklin.
"Be comforted, Miss Veaey," proceeded
Mr. Graves. "True, you have lost an uncle,
but I have lost a wife���such a wife���the
first of her sex���and the second cusin of the
defunct, excuse me, Sir John," he continued, raising a great white lundkcrcliiel
to his eyes.
"At the eight of your mourning"���Sir
John had changed his attire���"my wounds
bleed afresh."
Here the servants approached with wine
and sandwiches.
"Take some refreshment," said Sir John,
gently.    "A glass of wine."
"Thank you!" returned Mr. Graves, sipping the wine: then suddenly emptying the
glasB, he said, almost eagerly and with a
twinkle���a momentary lighting up���of his
dark, dark eyes, "Very fine sherry! Ah!
my poor sainted Maria," he went on in his
usual lugubrious tones, "sherry was her
winejeverything reminds me of Maria."
Leaving Sir John, he approached Lady
Franklin, who was seated at the table, and
said���
"Ah! Lady Franklin, you knew her.
Nothing in life can charm me now;" and as
he was turning from her ladyship, he was
heard to murmur to himself, "A mons reus
fine woman that."
"And now to business," said Sir John
Vesey.
At the word "business," all the servants
retired. Sir John proceeded in a voice in
which dignity waa admirably blended, with
just the right measure of sorrow befitting
the occasion.
"Evelyn, you may retire."

A Visit to the Old Jail.
The present, jiil will Boon be a thing ef
the past, yet, though the new building will
be au improvement, the accommodations of
tho old Btand-by are much better thau would
be imagined from viewing the structure out-
Bide. Yesterday, by the courtesy of Sher ff
Drake, a Tki.hp.ham representative was
showd around the interior and saw unveiled
the mystetieB of looking aud unlocking the
cells and the details of the cooking ami
washing establishments At present there
are about 40 prisoners in the jail, 14 or 16
of whom are in the chain gang, the remainder being kept in the building. The
exercise yard is of quite a large siz*! and
surprises oue, as its dimensions would not
be imagined from an outside view.
An elevated platform extends along the
upper side of the yard upon whioh the
guard patrols during the time the prisoners are having their exercise, the same
platform with un addition being used aa
the gallows wheu the extreme penalty of
the law has to be adnnnisteied.
Each cell has accommodations for
three inmates aud are healed by
Bloves. The food supplied is wholesome
and probably better than Borne unfortunates
have to put up with outside; the cooking il
done by one of the piisouers who, in cases
of sickness at night is able to get assistance
from outside, by simply knocking at the
door, having his bed near the kitchen and
not being locked up. The Salvation Army
leave papers at the prison every week, and
the Y.M.C.A. also supply reading matter to
the prisoners, who fully appreciate the
kiudneae. A separate cell ia provided for
klootchmen, and another for new arrivals,
called the "Bummer's Cell," where the new
comers aro kept till they receive the uniform with the conspicuous "N.F.," when
they are drafted off into the other compartments. Before closing up for the night the
Sheriff examines each prisoner's bedding,
e***c., and he ia then locked up for the night.
In their exercising hours, especially Saturday afternoon, the prisoners indulge in
games of all sorts iu the yard.
Mr. Drake very kindly explained the
whole routine to our reporter, who took hiB
leave, not wishing to remain as tui inmnte of
that lustitu ion.
