last evening at the military baloou station
in Mfudou lorest live miles from this city.

by anarchists.
Trouble in Turkey.
Paris, Feb. 9.���Le Temps has this despatch from Constantinople: "Alexander VV
Terrill, United States minister, has demanded the immediate liberation of two Armenians, who are American citizens and are imprisoned in Iskanderun, Northern Syria.
He has threatened, iu the event of a refusal,
to tend au ironclad to Iskanderuu.'

Massacre at Timbuetoo.
Paris, Feb. 9.���Captain Nigotte alone
reached Lieutenant Salidas' camp, and a few
native riflemen saved themselves hy flight
from the massacre, and most of those have
since arrived at Timbuetoo. In the night
of January 16th Captain Nigotte and his
column, while asleep, were surprised and
surrounded by Tuarengx. Captain Nigotte
was wounded iu the head. Captain I'hil-
lippe will await the arrival of the column
under Commander Joffre. He has sufficient
food to last until the commissariat that left
Segou on January 10th will reach him. The
mixed populace of Timbuetoo regards the
French force with varied feelings. Many
are said to favor the occupation. The
Tuarengs were on foot and were armed with
lances and knives. Tlie French government
has autho* iz* d the formation of another
battalion of Soudanese riflemen, which will
be the fourth body nf tho kind.
Paris, Feb. 9.���Later���Conflicting reports as to the number of French troops
killed near Timbuetoo are being received.

massacred.
More Mines Opening Up.
Columbus, Ohio, Feb. 9.���A convention
of the miners of Ohio, called to consider the
proposed wage reduction, has been in session
here all day. No decision has been reached,

miner to work on satisfactory terms.

Current News from the City by the Golden
Gate.
San Francisco, Feb. 9.���The customs

The drug waB sent from Port Townsend,
Wash, and Portland, Ore., and was addressed to Chinese in this city.
Judge Hebbard decided to-day to disolve
the injunction restraining the stockholders
of the Pacific Bank from holding an election
of directors. He declared that the injunc
tion granted upon the application of attorney general in settling up the affairs of ths
bank, was sullicient to restrain stockholders
from transacting any business. The second
injunction waa therefore unnecessary.
Tho executive committee of the Midwinter fair held a meeting this afternoon and decided lo maintain the 50 cent rate of admission. It was proposed that the admission
foe should be reduced to 25 cents.
It is announced to-day that, the Columbia
Liberty Bell, which is now in New York,
will be brought to the Midwinter Exposition
as soon as transportation arrangements can
be made. The Pullman Company is building cars specially for the bell and its attendants and in this car the bell will make
the tour across continent and return. The
bell will probably be taken to the City of
Mexico after its visit to San Francisco.

Para, sailed at noon to-day for Roncador
reef to take aboard the officers and crew of
the U. S. warship Kenisuge, which went on
the rocks last Friday. She was chartered
for the voyage by the U. S. Government.
As Roncador reef is about 300 miles from

be back before Sunday afternoon.
A Cyclone at St. Louis.
St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 9.���A furious windstorm set at 11 o'clock tnis morning. Telegraph wires, and fences were levelled. A

Rival Press Agencies.
Sandusky, O., Feb. 9.���The Register, ol
this city, owned and edited by I F. Mack,
a member of the Western Associated Press
and for ten years its president, publish's
the stHtemeut signed by James Gordon Bun-
uett, Whitelav. Reid, Chas A. I'ana, Geo.
F. Spinuey and Charles L. Miller, that, as
trustees of the United Press, they intend to
stand by that body and have no intention
of makine a compromise with its rival, and
says editorially: "This proclamation ought
to satisfy every member of the Associated
Press that before the contest is finished a
vast amount of money will be expended
foolishly with ultimate benefit to neither
side, and that we are already being compelled to pay an extra assessment without
any additional or corresponding improvement in either quantity or quality of the
news furnished to the press."
Mowat on Prohibition.
Toronto. Feb. 9.���The Ontario prohibition plebiscite has produced an expression
from Premier Mowat, which is said to be a
Cabinet decision. The premier says: "If
the decision of the Privy Council should be
that the provinces have the jurisdiction to
pass a prohibitory law, as respects the sale
ot intoxicating liquors, I will introduce such
a bill in the following session if I am at the
head of the Government. If i he decision of
the Privy Couucil Is that the Province has
jurisdiction to pass only a partial prohibitory law, I will iutroduce such a prohibitory
bill as the decision will warrant, unless the
partial prohibitory power is so limited as to
be ineffective from a temperance standpoint." This declaration was given to a
committee representing a big gathering of
temperance workers held in this city this
week, at which some 1,500 delegates, representing all sections of this province, were
present. Sir Oliver Mowat stated that his
sympathies had always been with the temperance movement and long ago he had
recognized the misery attendant, upon the
liquor *����fl>��..��*<i baiingiveu : .-mtupbatuysx-
pression to his sentiments. Tbe Government's decision is, of course, subject to the
fortunes of war. After the legislature
shortly to be held, the Government
will dissolve the legislature and
appeal to the people and this leaves just two
snags in the way of prohibition in Ontario.
First, the possible adverse decision of the
judiciary committee of the privy council;
second, the defeat o[ the Government of Sir
Oliver Mowat at the polls and tbe return of
a conservative majority. But politicians
believe that in catering to the temperance
element Sir Oliver has played a winning
card. His government was sure of the
opposition of the Protestant Protective Association which has recently
developed an unexpected strength in the
province, and one to which politicians of a
cenain kind aie paying much deference.
The liquor tr**de combined with the strongly
partisan P. P. A. aud the regutar Conservatives, constitute a power that the Liberals
can only hope u> overcome by a union with
the temperance element which has shown
considerable strength.
Affecting States Railways.
Washington, Feb. 9.���The House committee ou Judiciary to-day authorized Mr.
Terry, of Arkansas, i" report favorably on
the bill providing It., t all United States
railway corporations or railway companies
organized or incorporated under, or hy virtue of the laws of the United .States, shall
for all pii! poses of jurisdiction, be held aud

Corporation may conduct or carry on any
business. Service of process upou such corporations is authorized to be made according
to the laws oi tbe States, in which suits are
brought.
A Double Murder and Suicide.
Pittsburg, Pa., Feb. 9.���James Ross,
aged 38 years and married, attempted to
kill his wife and mother-in-law to-night and
then committed suicide by shooting himself
through the heart in Mount Washington, a
suburb of Pittsburg.
Justice at Pittsburg.
Pittsburg, Pa., Feb. 9.���The first case
resulting from the recent miner's riots in
the Mansfield valley was called to-day.
Joseph Balecheck, a Pole, was tried for
assault. Although positively identified by
the plaintiff, Wm. Franey, and two witnesses, tbe jury found him not gudty and
divided the costs. The sixty other miners
charged with rioting will be called for trial
Monday. All will be tried together, a
larger number than ever were tried together
before in ibis county. It iB expected that
Borne     ill plead guilty.
Too Partial a History.
Philadelphia, Feb. 9.��� Post No. 2, and
19, G. A. R., last nitrbt, took a strong stand
Astonishing   Assets.
Medina, Ohio, Feb. fl.��� Sensatioual disclosures were made today in connection
with the failure of the Seville Exchange
Bank, which filed a deed of assignment on
Wednesday. B, G, Miller waB nominated
as assignee aud to-day the sheriff made a
levy and could find assets amounting only
to S69.    The deposits amounted to $500,000

Similar ac ion was taken by the G. A. R.
men in Idaho, two weeks ago. The resolutions adopted by Post No. 2 last night,
rotests "against the selection and disti-i-
ution of thia book to the scholars
of the public schools of this
city, for the reason that it ia
the one biased in favor of treason and the
cauae of the South. It vilely belittles and
aims to detract, from the courage and patriotic work performed by the soldiers of
the Union armies, and, by undue prominence, seeks to ennoble the soldiers of the
rebel nr lies, who sought to destroy the
government, and refers to them iu endearing terms, never harsher than that of Confederates. It suppresses, in many instances,
the names of our heroes, and persistently
and oonspicuously depicts in strong colors
the achievements of the rebel commanders
and their armies."

by a relative of Cashier Wideuiau. The
bank was owned by Wideman.
Inhuman Monsters.
Barboursville, Ky. Feb. 9.���On leather
Wood Creek, Cumberland County, Wednesday night, three men entered the home of
James Clayton, who does not believe in
banks, and after gagging the family, proceeded '.o compel him to tell where his
money was bidden. They tired pistols close
to his head, cooked him, burned him with
hot stones and finally studk his feet into the
fire, holding them their till they burned to a
crisp. This finally conquered Clayton, ����� ho
told where the money was. The robbers
got $1,800 and then escaped on three of
Clayton's horses. Clayton will probably
die.

COMMUNICATIONS.
Miss Vincent's Views.
���pitor Tki.k*ikam:
Sir,���In reference to the report about me
in the Free Press, I would like to reply to a
few statements which are not true. For
one thing, the chief of police was so polite (!)
that really, I do not see how he manages to
live. He regarded me more as a criminal of
the lowest order than a girl who bad but
simply left her father's house. The room
they gave me to sleep in at the jail was
really not tit for a dog to lie down in, I did
not even have a pillow to lay my head on.
When I asked them for a lamp or light of
some kind, they laughed and turned away
as though I was some Siwash. Perhaps if I
had been I should have got a warmer reception.
In regard to what the chief said about
asking Mr. E. P. Powell about who I was
and a marriage licence, that was a most
awful lie, for it was never mentioned. I
have witnesses to prove it. And in reference to what some porsons said about my
leaving home at the first opportunity, was
another wilful lie. It seems that some people know more about Mr. Powell than I do,
who have known him for the last six months
and hare always found him i gentleman in
his appearance and actions. If anyone
wants to know any more about him they
can write to his father at Salem, Oregon,
who is a member of the State Legislature;
and then, perhapo, they will be satisfied.
With respect to tbe kindness shown me
by Mr. and Mrs. Carron.they oould not have
done more had they known me all their
lives. I thank them through your paper
very much for their kindness to me. If I
ever have a chance of doing them a favor I
will do it as quickly as it they were a brother
or a sister. I am writing this on the boat
and it is very inconvenient. Please correct
any mistakes and oblige,
Yours,
Jennie Vincent
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU MAKE
...BUT.
Now that the cause of mental science has
triumphed in the court of justice, let every
sane man and woman of Nanaimo do their
best to advocate and help forward this
cause of moral and social reform. The true
phrenologist at all times finds himself in the
position of a missionary and worker trying
to alleviate the ills of human life and shows
how those ills in the future may be
avoided. Prevention is better than cure.
How many young persons there are who do
not know what they live for, and some who
do not always live the best of lives. Ignorance of self is the greatest calamity that
can happen to anyone, for he ia not
then prepared to fight the battles
of life. A person contemplating matrimony
is not the wisest if he does not get advice.
"If I had only bnown before" are the words
of the ill-assorted couple. Knowledge of
temperance, hygiene and morality are each
urged upon people by the phrenologist. A
phrenologist sees in the physical and mental
constitutions of men traces of Divine handy-
work. Yet, even though heredity tells ita
tales of abuse and disappointment, to the
proper observer, every human faculty is
sacred. All the wringings of the heart, so
common to many, would be much lessened
by the application of mental science.
Hereditary transmission is a Biblical doctrine and is one of the strongholds oi phrenology. Let every person make the most of
the lectures that are to-day commencing
nnder the auspices of the Y.M.C.A. and so
benefit themselves and the cause.

The Highest Authority in Amerioa.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper authority in America, speaks thus of The
Daily Telegram:
"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It iB on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to tbe publisher of Tun Daily
Tblegram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it compare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with the
publisher about it afterwards, und ask bim
why it is that he can't print as goo*! a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
his paper as free from deadhead or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanaimo."

EDITORIAL   DROPPINGS.
Silas Wegg, of wooden leg fame, whose
literary dwelling is in Our Mutual Friend,
was also famous for occasionally dropping
into poetry. In fact, when worth his while,
he would very frequently drop into a style
of verse whioh he deemed poetry. In like
manner the post meridian contemporary of
this newspaper will very occasionally drop a
leading article into its columns, when, for
reasons of its own, it is worth the while.
After a shorter lapse than usual, some portion of the reading public of Nanaimo had
their mental palates tickled last evening
with another editorial effusion on the subjeot
of "Wildcat Townsiles." The intermittent
editorial is based on I he facl of 199 lots of the
townsite of Kaslo being ndvertised for auction in the Provincial Gazette on account of
delinquent taxes. This is deemed an object
lesson againBt all investments outside of a
citizen's own circle. No mention is made
of how many lots there are in the townsite
nor what the proportion is to those owned
and held without any lapsed payments.
If the cities of Victoria, New Westminster, Nanaimo and Vancouver were all taken
to-gether, and the delinquent taxpayers'
lots taken and auctioned, they would average considerably more than 199 lots per
city. ThiB may seem a strong statement,
but it would be found to prove a true one���
much nearer the truth, indeed, than the
statement of $1,000,000 of Nanaimo money
being invested in outside properties, which,
if sold, would only yield ?1,000. Whatever
value the editorial may have possessed as
comment, was immediately and utterly
cancelled by such a preposterous statement.
These infrequent emissions of the local
thunderer are very like the mimic thunders
of the stage which are produced by sheets of
tin. The whole tone is narrowly individual
and intensely insular, betokening the spirit
which stunts growth and is a damning detriment to development. WVie il to generally
prevail the proviuce would remain as it is
for a hundred years and Nanuimo would be
put baok in equivalent lo a century. If any
town or city thinks to live within itself
upon itself, the direst of consumptions will
follow leaving it but a skeleton of frame
buildings with a few inhabitants who lived
down to such ideals.
A  WORD TO THE WISE.
The Colonist of Thursday had an article
on the subject of a neglected constituency,
which is well worthy the attention of voters
in this city.    Our contemporary says:
"Mr. Kitchen, who for some months past
has been so busy in teaching the Government what they ought to do and what to
avoid, and in finding fault with almost
everything connected with the administration of public afl'nirB, is, we hear, very far
from giving satisfaction to his own constituents. They, it appears, think that he
would bo more in the line of his duty if he
devoted less of hiB time lo snarling at the
Government and more of il to looking after
the interests of Chilliwack. They aay
that they did not, elect hun to be continually abusing the Premier aud his collougueu.
What they wauted was a man who would do
his best to ��et the district what it needs in
the way of public improvements. It, they
aBsert, needs a railway, djkos, public roads
and a court house, but tliuy do uot see that
Mr. Kitchen haa done anything to get any
of these things for them. So little faith
have they in his zeal and ability that they
have sent a delegation of sturdy yeomen to
the Capital to represent the wants of the
district to the Government. Mr. Kitchen,
it is evident, has been acting the part of
Mrs. Jelly by, who was so busy iu attending
to the wants of those in distant lands, say
Cariboo, that Bhe had no time to attend to
the wants of her own household. His neglected constituents seeing their representative bo immersed in matters in which they
take no interest, feel that if they don't do
the work which he has been elected to do,
it will never be done, have undertaken to
do it themselves, and appearances are very
deceptive if any one of them is not better
qualified to do it than Mr. Kitchen, M.P.P."
Mutatis mutandis this article will apply
exactly to the case of Nanaimo, save that
we have not in Nanaimo so many wants
as the people of Chilliwack have. All we
have to do is to substitute the name of
Keith for Kitchen and Nanaimo for Chilliwack, and the description is as perfect as
the parallel between the two constituencies
is complete.    Both  have the misfortune to
represented in the Provincial Assembly by
men, who, calling themselves Independents,
are in reality bitter and virulent Oppositionists. Both of their representatives
have been so very busy denouncing and opposing the Government that they have had
no time to devote to the interests and wants
of their constituencies; and in point of fact
neither Kitchen nor Keith has the smallest
influence with the Government, even if they
had time to Spare from the labor of constant
opposition tc look after the welfare of the
constituencies which elected them. Both
have succeeded in making themselves far
too obnoxious to the Government for that
It is all very woll in theory to say that it is
the duty of the Government to hold the
balance even in the matter of appro
priations, and no doubt it tries
to do so; bnt the members of
the administration are after all only human
and it is very human for men to consider
favorably the requests of their friends in
preference to those of their enemies. More
over the best of governments require to
have their memories jogged at times, and
this can always be best done by representa
tives who have not succeeded in making
themselves altogether obnoxious by the vir
ulence of their opposition. We are fully
convinced that it would be better for any
constituency to elect an open and acknowl
edged opponent of the Government, than a
man who hypocritically seeks votes aB an
Independent on the plea that he will support all good measures proposed by the
Government, and then after he has been
elected turns round and opposes all Government measures, good, bad and indifferent,
apparently without any regard to their
quality whatsoever. Such a man may be
fairly suspected of having some personal
object or ambition to serve other than the
interests of the constituency he was elected
to represent. We would strongly recom
mend the people of Nanaimo to consider
these matters carefully, before they again
elect a self styled Independent, who only
requires time and opportunity to develop
iuto a first-class Oppositionist, to represent
Nanaimo in the Provincial Assembly. A
word to the wise, says the proverb, is efficient.
The old U. S.  corvette,  Kearsarge,  the
destroyer of the rebel cruiser, Alabama, has
been wrecked on a reef when   eh route from
Port on Prince in Hayti toBluefields, Nicar
agua.    All on board were saved.
Duke Alfred, of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha,put
forward the secretary of state of his duchy
to say for him in the German reichstig, that
he was not the subject of any foreign power,
that he held no obligations toward Great
Britain that were contrary to hie German
sovereignty. Prince Alfred is evidently
trying to conciliate the Germans at the ex-
ponse of his position as a British prince.
How much nobler the attitude of Sir John
Macdonald when he exclaimed: "A British
subject I was born and a British subjeot I
will die." It would have better become
Prince Alfred to have boldly Baid that he
was born a British prince, a son of England's
Queen, and that what he was born he would
remain; but that his relation to England
and its sovereign would in no way hinder
him from doing his duty to Germany and
his German subjects. We are convinced
that if he had said ao manfully no German
of sense would have objected, and it is quite
certain if he had done bo his words would
have been applauded in England. As it is
the words spoken for him are not deserving
of applause either in Gepmany or in England. They nre simply the wordB of a man
of mean spirit, whom no one can admire.
If the Radicals can succeed in docking him
of the annuity uf ��10,000 a year which he
draws from the British treasury, moat Englishmen will aay that it will only be serving
him right. At any rate he has put a new
argument in the mouths of the Radicals
when next they bring up the subject of his
annuity in the House of Commons, an argu
ment which cannot be easily met.
When collecting names in Dupont street,
Vancouver, for the British Columbia directory, the canvasser fouud that il was almost
equally inhabited by Chinamen, dresa-
makera and music teachers. Very few of
them are included iu the book.

Mr. Wilson's Lecture.
One of the mimt valuable statements made
by Mr. Wilson last night in his lecture at
the N.K P.S. Hall, on the Kaslo-Klncun
mining district, was concerning the output
of ore for January, 1894. For that month
there was transported from the miucs l,f>00
tons of ore with a shipment value of $2IJ5I-
000. This fact alone is sufficient to inspire,
renew and confirm confidence in this wonderfully wealth producing country. Mr.
Wilson gave an interesting account and history of the country from its earlier days to
the present time. That history tends to
show that the Kaslo boom is not a thinir of today, l..r. has been growing steadily for
eight years. When it is remembered that
the greater part of the ore is got out by
men with whole or part interest in the
many olaims, without oapital behind them,
exoept in a few cases, it. will readily be
seen that the development is really mitrvel-
ous.
Notwithstanding the temporary backset
which some of the townsites of the district
received, it has not really affeoted the whole
as a mining community. The mining will
go on despite realty fluctuations, and somewhere in ths neighborhood there is bound
to be a commercial emporium of some significance. Mr. Wilson thinks Kaslo and
New Denver are the oities of destiny.

Young   Sports   Rugby   Football
Mooting.
The Young Sports assembled last night in
Booth's skil tin rooms and proceeded to the
election of officers: V. Stewart, captain;
J. Wilcox, vice-captain; A. Oibbs, secretary; C. Randle, treasurer. The colors to
be worn by the club were deoided to be
black jerseys with the monogram Y.S. in
white. The secretary stated that he had
written  to   the  Viotoria,   Vancouver and
Westminster Junior club secretaries and was
expecting answers. They all expressed
their eagerness to meet the juniors of the
other clubs of the Province, and a match
has been arranged for with the Hornets on
Saturday week, the 17th, on the swamp.

Ticking Off Talmage.
The announcement that Talmage has resigned the pastorate of the so called Tabernacle, of Brooklyn, by reason of the financial
troubles of the meeting house in question, is
in itself neither unexpected nor unwelcome.
That a Talmage, after a certain lapse of
time, would "play out," that is a conclusion
that every lover of civilization was bound to
entertain. Talmage is in theology what
���very current "cheap Jack" is in his own
department. In journalism, in literature,
in art, in the drama, in everything that
transcends the bargain counter, the hope of
the lover of civilization muat have been that
a time would come when people would distinguish for themselves between what was
evanescent and what was permanent, between what was false and what was true.
Rather curiously, it does not appear that
the collapse of Talmage was due to an increasing appreciation of this fact. There
are, more shame to us, no statistics whioh
show that the popularity of Talmage is any
less than it was twenty years ago. It is
much less than twenty years ago that an
enterprising manager expressed the true
nature of Talmage in a reference to his
popularity abroad. "Do you know," said
that enterprising manager, "that there are
200,000 copies of that man's sermon's
printed and read in England every week-
and no respectable person ever heard of
him?" However this may be, it is beyond
dispute that Talmage has been, for the past
twenty years, the most popular and successful preacher in this part of the United
States. The common people have heard him
gladly, and the more gladly the commoner
they are. He has never had anything to
aay to any educated or fastidious or sensitive person. The commoner his andience,
the more he has had to say to it. He was
not admirable, he was not instructive, he
was not exemplary. There were, to our
national shame be it said, a large number of
persons who liked to hear him preach. But
it plainly appears that they were not numerous enough, or peounious enough, to keep
him going. At any rate, his puipit eloquence has not sufficed to pay him a fancy
salary and to keep his Tabernacle going.
This is a matter for public congratulation.���

A prohibition convention was held in
Toronto on Wednesday. A deputation,
headed by Rev. Dr. Potts, interviewed Sir
Oliver Mowat. Sir Oliver made a reply the
gist of which is contained in the cloning sentences as follows: "If the decision of the
Privy Conncil should be that the Province
has jurisdiction to pass a prohibitory liquor
law, as to the sale, I will introduce such a
bill the following session, if I am then head
of the Government. If the decision of the
Privy Council is that the Province has jurisdiction to pass only a partial prohibitory
liquor law I will introduce such a prohibitory bill as the decision will warrant." Tbe
convention held a jubilation meeting afterward.

LOCAL  NEWS.
POLICE  COURT.
In yesterday's police court Professor
Cozens appeared on the remaned charge of
fortune telling without a license, Mr. Planta, S. M. and Mr. Bate. J. P. presiding.
After some pleasant bandinage and inspecting the professor's diploma, the Stipendiary
Magistrate gave his own and colleagues
opinion that the charge had not been proven
and therefore g \ve the defendant honorable
acquittal, wishing him God speed. In the
course of his remarks the worthy magistrate
observed that ths criminal code of Canada
and the Provincial Act legalising the license
by-law were totally at variance, and it was
possible that the city was not within the
law iu granting such a license.
The Cusack family quarrel case was
brought up on remand, and the gentlemen
on the bench did their benevolent best to
effect a reconciliation between the husband
and wife. Mr. Cusack, however, proved a
most obdurate being, and would not take
the hand which his wife proffered him in
cordial intent. Upon publicly promising to
abstain from liquor for six months, Mr.
Cusack was allowed to leave the precinctB
of the jail, his week's incarceration being
deemed sufficient to meet the assault. The
discharged man said he Intended shaking
the Nanaiino dust off his pedals.
Sacred Concert at St. Albans.
A saored concert will be given on Wednesday next at St. Alban's Hall, at which a
number of the city's most popular vo lalists
will take part. The admission will be the
popular price of 10 cts aud all are invited to
attend.

Nanaimo Gun Clnb.
It is understood that the Nanaimo Gun
Club will very shortly start their practice
and competitions. This year's proceedings
will probably be opened by a smoking concert or some similar entertainment. Last
year waB a successful one in every way to
tbe club, which is one of the largest and
most promising organizations in the Province. This year, at least, a number of medals and diplomas will be competed for, the
interest in marksmanship becoming greater
every year and attracting more members
and attention as time goes on.

A Marked Improvement.
The receut alteration on Commercial
street bridge iB generally considered a
bumping sucueBS. (heat enjoyment is gained
by those bo disposed, in watching the ami
den unexpected jolts that vehicles receive
in descending from the raised to the lower
portions of the read and vice versa. The
startling effect of the shocks thus administered to the occupants of the vehicles and to
the equines drawing them being also very
interesting to witness. The work being done
is considered to be a long felt want (!)
and great hopes aie entertained of the results when finished. The improvement iB
thought to be a good one in several respects
the principal one of which is that a rig or
team driver would not be foolhardy enough
to drive faster than a walk even if allowed
over the bridge, unless the horse were accustomed to a species of tight rope trotting;
otherwise the result on the occupants of the
sudden descents and ascents of the wheels
would be too fearful to coutemplate.

the hall, and ou returning to tlie family
laid uTrionsly!
"I can't l��axn what alls Jasper,  Bome-
tliing annoys o* troubles him, and I cannot provii-'l upon him to trust me with it.
I should feel really vexed with him did
I not think tt was some home sorrow ha
was trying to conceal, because he thinks
we have our share just now."
"Would he give you no reason for his
irritable, restless manner, which w�� all

Rose lingered with him for a few moments in the hall.
"No, father. H> simply tried to laugh
it off and sport about it, and when he
6aw I was not deceived Baid very tenderly that I must seither Brieve about it nor
doubt him. It wan but a trifle. It waa
not best to speak of it at present, but in
a short time I should know all about it."
"There, darling, try to banish ull uneasiness. Go to your rest now and let us
all prepare our niindB for tomorrow,"
said the mother. "Wo will hope theSab-
bath will give us peace and courage for
the first week of our new lift*."
CHAPTER VIII.
The Sabbath iu Mr. Newton's household was always a pleasant and peaceful
day of rest. All secular thoughts and
avocations were, as much as possible, sot
aside, and after the usual attendance at
the house of God the remainder of the
day was divested of useless solemnity or
formality by profitable readiug or cheerful conversation.
As usual. Grenville was with then at
dinner, and so far recovered his natural
and pleasant deportment that Rose's
heart rested again in happy confidence
uud serenity.
Dinner waited some time and was at
last served and over before Dunbar made
liia appearance���a circumstance so unusual that it had given rise to some anxiety on his account, and Lillian's was not
diminished when she met him in the hall.
"What is the matter, dear Eustace?"
"Do not be alarmed, my darling. I
will not keep you in suspense. I am
pftined for poor Lo Barron's wretched
l.imily, but I will explain when wo are
all together. It is a t.tory I do not care
to repeat but once."
After a hasty greeting from the family
he said:
"Early this morning our friend Austin
called to inform me of the troubles atLe
Barron's. Yuu all know ti.it the braggart adventurer De Courtney has for
some mouths had his eye on Le Barron's
apparent riches under tho guise of admiration for their eldest daughter. I
knew that Estella and her mother were
greatly smitten with him, and ivlaud was
pining with envy. Tho mora cautious
and suspicions father-had written to some
merchant abroad requesting reliable testimonials respecting this prince in disguise beforo he would yield to the hasty
consummation of tho marriage, for which
the ardent lover was so urgent. It seems
that when tho poor father hail confessed
tlie ruin and degradation that went closing upon them, and Estnlla hud borne
her part in tho first out Durst if wild
passion that assailed Inn-, hkt shrewd
mind conceived a plan for Uer own saie-

"Silently retiring from tho wordy warfare, she wrote a hasty note to Dj Courtney asking liitn to meet her at a restaurant near by, sent it by her Frttnch maid,
deep in all her secrets, and silently nii.de
her exit from a side room to the rendezvous. Sho safely calculated that in the
tumult her absence would not be observed. In that unhappy family you are
aware that self is the dominant power,
a-.id Estella well knew that when the
liercene s of the storm then raging had
passed it would bo succeeded by tears
and hysterical lamentations that would
claim the attendance of all tho servants,
thus leaving her to consummate her selfish arrangements unmolested.
"What passed between her' and De
Courtney can only bo conjectured by the
results and a letter left behind for the
11 lother. It would seem that she returned
to the houBe as secretly as sho had left it,
directed her maid to collect all her valuables and pack her wardrobe, while she
proceeded to secure what money or jewelry she could find in her mother's or sister's rooms and departed with her spoils,
attended by her French waiting maid.
Quite early this morning, as Austin was
passing Roseville, Maud, apparently in
great excitement, called to him from the
library window.  He entered, and giving

t:dla's absence during the night, but
Maud in the morning had ordered hei
attendant to bring some ornament or article from her wardrobe, which could
not be found. On examining further her
jewelry and most of her choice possessions wero missing. Then her maid
hinted that Miss Le Barron had been
'going on strangely' tlie day before, and
nil the servants remarked it, but ths
madam had been so bad they had had no
lime to give it attention. But now would
Miss Maud please go into her sister's
room and see for herself and not be saying disparaging things to a poor waiting
maid? I judge from the accent of both
mistress and maid that Maud, becoming
furious at the spoiling of her goods, had
visited her wrath on the one nearest to
her. On entering her sister's chamber it
was vacant, the wardrobe and bureaus
empty, and on the table lay an open note
to her mother of the most insolent and
heartless character.
"She said that, seeing Inevitable ruin
coming upon the family, and having no
disposition to share it with them, she had
at once sought her dear Victor, and not
wishing to reveal their misfortunes had
simply Informed him that her fat her hod
peremptorily forbidden her to hold any
further communication with him, as he
pretended he had received advices from
abroad to his discredit, which she did not
believe, but this cruel father's commands
compelled her to say farewell.
" 'Of course',' the unfeeling girl oon-
tinued, 'I knew dear Victor would not
listen to that idea for a moment, but, as
I expected, begged for an immediate
marriage that very hour, before I returned to my parents. When I was once
his own, I couW quietly collect all my
jewelry and wardrobe, and we would
leave at once, making our bridal tour a
pleasant vovage to las native land. Be
was sure rather would soon recall us
when he found resistance was of no
avail.' Of oourse ahe could not refuse so
elegant a lover. They were married
within the hour, and as this haste gave
her no time for a bridal trousseau befitting a millionaire's daughter she- was
sure her dear mother and sister would
pardon her for making free with their
jewelry and such, ready money as she
found in their pcrses and her father's
esoretoire. Robbin, the footboy, had
taken her trunks away, sho said, and
fearing to incur his master's displeasure
would not return. Her maid also would
of course go with her."
The family had listened to Eustace's
narrative thus far without interruption,
overwhelmed with sorrow and amazement, but Mr. Newton now exclaimed:
"Why, this ib far beyond the most unscrupulous selfishness I ever imagined
could be found in one so young."
"Ah, but Maud will far outmatch her,
I fear. I once thought her more gentle
and amiable than her sister. But the
bitter hate and vindictivenoss she manifests are feayful, The loss to herself and
the impossibility of .reclaiming was all
she seemed to think of. Her father's
danger and her mother's uncertain condition hardly excited an emotion. As
soon as Austin and I could interrupt
Maud's excited recital of her own misfortunes 1 alluded to the strange sounds
I heard on entering.
" 'Pshaw I that's nothing,' said Maud,
'mother has kept the house in an uproar
all night. I kept myself out of the way,
I assure you, and toft father to take care
of her as best he might. He deserves it
all and more for bringing this great
shame upon us.'
" 'Have you seen your mother this
morning?' I asked, greatly surprised.
" 'No, indeed. I staid as long as I could
endure her temper last night. If I had
followed Stella's example and left earlier,
I might have saved my own possessions
from her hands. Mother may learn of
Estella's dutiful conduct by some one
else. She has been exalted above me and
cited as an example for me to imitate
long enough. Now I hope mother will
enjoy this new evidenoe of her favorite's
smartness, but I'll not take the first blast
of her rage, I assure you. She'll find that
I, too, oan keep my own oounsel as well
us Stella.'
'"Oh, Maud! 1Mb Is shameful I IwiH
at least seek your parents and try to haty
them.'
" 'Well, go, Dpn Quixote, and suoooj
'he distressed. Success attend you. I
nope you will enjoy 11'
