A Cyclone in Congress.
Washington, Feb. 23.���The proceedings
in the House to-day were largely a continuation of those of yesterday, but conducted
with more decorum in anticipation of a renewal of Thursday's disorder. The galleries were packed aud although the occupants
were not regaled with a lepeiition of yesterday's tumult, they heard aome aenaational
remarks from Bland,and an interesting contribution from Reed, upon the composition
of the constitutional quorum and how that
quorum was to be ascertained, Bland offered a motion for the discharge of Adams
under arrest, and in speaking to the motion
Baid that yesterday's proctediuga constituted
anarchy and revolution. He asked how
members who openly declared tha*. th<*y
would uot obey orders luid mlea of the
House, could expect the people of the
country who were suffering from wan** of
food <nd shelter, to observe the laws of the
land with greater respect, He lectured the
Democratic members for failing to keep a
quorum in the seats and exclaimed: "The
people will read a riot act to them in November next." Proceeding in this strain,
Bland was called to order by Dunn (Democrat, New Jersey,) who said the former had
not been constituted a lecturer of the Demo
oratic party. Other Democrats alao. took
the aame stand.
Reed then gob the floor and said the action of tho House in passing a resolution to
arrest members waa unauthorized, because
it wus pabsed in violation of llie rules of the
rules of the. House and all Parliamentary
law. He pleaded wiih the Democrats to
retrace their atepa and take a true basis of
action. Bland then withdrew hiB previous
motion and moved that all further proceedings under which the order of arreet waa
made, be dispensed with. This would vacate the arreat. made. After aome discussion, the motion was carried, and the chair
announced the discharge of all membera
under arreat. Bland tben moved to take
up his Seigoorage BiU and close debate at
five o'olock on Saturday. On thia motion
the vote was: Yeas, 170} nays, .7. Two
less than a quorum remained all the afternoon, and exhausted the time in filibustering, and at five o'clock the recess waa taken
until eight o'clock, when the Private Pension Bill waB considered.

Inhabitants of   a large   village  named Ku

What a Friend Says of Rastus.
New Yobk, Feb. 23.���A gentleman fully
acquainted with the caae of Kraatus Wyman
but who   refuaed to allow   hia   name to be
ueed, aaid to a reporter yeaterday "I don't
think that bail   will be Bought   for, if   Mr.
Wyman follows   the   advice of   hia frienda
and of those most conversant with the facta.
I believe he will plead  guilty.   The  aituation waa peculiar and there   were many extenuating features.    It will be much  better
for him to submit all facts  surrounding the
charges and throw himself on the mercy of
the court and the  prosecution in the case."
Mr.    Wyman    certainly    dd     forge    the
names ot Mr.  K   VV.   Bullenger   and   Mr.
Ogden   Brower   and he will    not deny it.
His relmi *ns with these paitics were veiy
in'iniii'e       und       friendly.       He      more
than once carried checks to them for the indebtedness of Dunn k Co.    He would sometimes tell   them   that   he   was very hard
pushed for money and ask if they could not
lend him the amount of   check to take his
notes, they readily assented, endorsing the
checks and gave them to him thinking his
embarrassment   was only    temporary.    In
the   two   cases   mentioned  he   did not go
through this formality   but   endorsed them
himself.    Mr. Wiman  iB a big hearted man
and there ia not a drop of criminal blood in
hia veins.    The   great   trouble   is he never
appreciated the value of money.    His enterprise made  R   G.   Dunn  4 Co. what they
are���every   important   movement    of    the
concern was uuder his guidance���he saw opportunities   for    branching   out   and    the
concern profited by them. He made firiends
for the company   wlnu-xr  he  went.    Frequently too when th - Hibernal which he had
recommended failed, Mr.  Wiman  geuerally
put his hand in his pocket and  met  all of
the losses, saying it waB his fault.    Re the
statement that Wiman waa not   a partner I
must take  exception  to   that.    The  booka
will ahow that when tho company waa   aued
for damages, Mr. Witn.ui was charged  with
one fifth of   the   losses     He   would   never
have   any   tiouble   with   R.   G.  Dun, the
senior   member   of   the    firm.     He    was
confident  that the   old   gentleman   would
have   never   pushed   him   far,    he    knew
too well ihe obligations   they   were   under
to Mr. Wiman.    There   are   two nephews,
however, connected with the firm, who were
always jealous of   Wiman.    They   are   the
ones who have made the trouble about the
forgeries.    The   beginning of   his  downfall
was his   becoming   involved in the   Staten
Island   Electric   Light k Power  Co.     He
persuaded a certain   man to go in  with him
and   the   busiuess   was largely   extended.
Wiman put up hia notes for his share of the
money, but the other man failed to bear his
part.    The consequence   waa   disustrovis to
Wiman.    As to   the   present   accusations,
Mr. Wiman has known for a year that they
were hanging over him.    I think he will let
the matter take its course.

Aurora Borealis.
During the late froaty nights persona who
have been out after dark have noticed the
magnificent display of northern lights
plainly visible in the clear sky.
The aurora borealis or northern lights, as
will be noticed, are seldom stationary and
appear and disappear suddenly, and though
seldom seen in this neighborhood on ao
grand a scale, sometimes cover the whole
sky, frequently having a stormy, tremulous
motion from end io end. A form of aurora
that is very rureiy i.een but which when
viewed can never be forgotten, iB when the
i ays appear to hunt; fr in * he sky like fringes
uu thu fulda if a mantle. The ordinary
L*��j'iis of the northern lights is a pale greenish yellow, but crimson, violet and steel
color are not uncommon.
Crimson auroras - such as that of Thursday night���have often heen imagined by
the auperatitious to be omens of war, pestilence and famine, and many queer instances
are given of the effects of the lights upon
our ancient forbears.
In Shetland and in the north of Scotland
the auroras are known as the "merry
dancers," evidently from the constant shifting of the peculiar appeal ing lights. Iu Ceylon, where these lights, strange aa it
may aeem, have appeared, they are termed
the Buddha lights, whilst in the first recorded appearance of I hose phenomena in
London in the year 1560, they were alluded
to as "Burning Spears."
The aurora seems to vary iu heiglit, and
n low latitudes is at such an ain uilu that
the sounds reported by Arctic explorers as
accompanying its appearance, are not dia-
cerniMe. The average height estimated by
scientists varied from 50 to over 100 miles.
I* lias been seen occasionally in the day
line -iverul records having bee a made of
the f .ut, though the diurnal appearances
have been very rare.
The onuses of the magnificent northern
lights seen in the winter time at different
parts of the globe have not been positively
decided yet, though aeveral theories have
been advanced as to their origin.
One writer considers the aurora formed
by storm clouds which instead of bursting
into thunder had been drawn in in ih ��� upper
partB of lhe atmospheu and the vapor
i crysiulliz-il into tiny prisms by the
iutense cold; the electricity having
b*?coiie luminous in flowing over
their icy p-.nicies. Electric currents have
been superinduced in telegraph wires, and
though transient in many cases, have been
pnwerfu*���caused by the electricity in the
atmosphere during the appearance of an
Aurora borealis.
From the different investigations and observations made by scientists into the causes
of this beautiful natural phenomenon, it haa
been generally conceeded that the lights
and movements are caused by the actions of
both electric ..nd magnetic influences combined together. It haa beeu often noticed
in connection with the Northern Lights, tho
appearance of a dark bank of cloud below
the archea,and usually just above the northern horizon, of so thin a character, stars can
be seen through it, thia is variously con*
sidered to be a part and pr.rcel of the phenomenon, though also may be often attributed to the natural hazy oondition of ths
sky giving it an appearance of being oloudy.

TELEGRAPHIC   SUMMARY.
Silver was quoted at 27J in London yesterday.
The rumor that the Holy Office had issued
a decree from Rome to condemn the doctrine of Henry George, is without foundation.
Wm. Waldorf Astor has subscribed by
cable from London $10,000 to the mayor's
fund for the relief of the unemployed in
New York. v
Dr. Eugene West, convicted of murder by
malpractice of Addie Gilmour, was yesterday at San Francisco sentenced to 25 years'
imprisonment in,the penitentiary.
The Spanish consul at New York sent
back to Havana on Wednesday, 27 immigrants who had been deceived into coming
to thiB country by the false representation
of an immigration agent.
The New York Herald's Panama, speoial
says: It is aaid here that M Mange, agent
for the liquidator of the Panama Canal Co.,
will assume the euperintendency of ibe
Panama roilway, in place of Mr. Rivers, on
March 1. Panama and Colon will gain
much by the change.
The anarchist named Bourdin was buried
yeaterday in London. The funeral was attended by a large crowd. There were no
signs of any disturbance until the hearse
reached Marylebone road, when someone
hoisted a red flag. Thia waa a signal for an
outcry, but the police charged on the crowd
scattering it in all directions, and tearing
down the objectionable flag. At the cemetery Anarchiat Quinn attempted to deliver
an oration, but waa seized by the police and
hustled outside the gates of the cemetry.
As Grayson Brown and his bride of a
week were travelling along a mountain road
in Lowns county, Georgia, two men stopped
them and with revolvers compelled the
bridegroom to stand by while they compelled his wife to submit t'o them. They
left and threatened death if they were informed upon. Next day Agnew Burrows
and John Thompson were arrested, but
while they were being taken across a creek
they leaped into the stream and escaped by
swimming. Mrs. Brown was one of the
prettiest girls of the aection and when the
crime became known the people ot the
county organized for lynching. They are
still scouring the mountains for the men.
The Pall Mall Gazette, commenting on
Benham's action in protecting the British
ship Naemith while obtaining a supply of
water in the harbor of Rio, saya it is difficult to underatand why the British fleet is
at Rio if not to protect British interests.
The St. James Gazette says surely Lord
Roseberry does not equieace in the doctrine
that the sole right ot iutervention belongs
to the Uuited States, und adds, it is humiliating in the extreme tn think that British
sailors had to seek American protection.
The Globe is curious, and says Benham is
doubtless ut liberty io hully the insurgents,
but it iB quite a different thing from offering
a most injurious insult io the British navy,
it should be the duty of the British Government tn demand an immediate apology from
tbe United States for the extraordinary conduct of its officers.
Two well known travelling passenger
agents had an exciting time at Niagara Falls
John E. Burke, of the Louisville and Nashville, and William Killogar, of the Chioago,
Milwaukee k St. Paul, were in the city on
business. In company with local passenger
agent B D. Denniaon, of the New York
Central, they viaited the ice bridge. The
party climbed the ice mountain,
and while on the brink, Burke'a hat
waa blown off, and began to roll down
the ice on the aide of the mountain towards the American Fulls, Burke, without thinking of hia danger, dropped down
on hia stomach to lean over and secure the
hat. He began to slip down the aide of the
ice mountain towards the whirling water
and certain death. He shouted "help
me!" and Kelly, leaning over, caught him
by the foot. The ice was slippery aud Kelly
lost bia footing and he too began to slip.
Dennison, who is a big, powerful man,
grabbed Kelly's legs, and thus tlfe three
formed a loop over the top of the mountain.
Burke ahouted, "for QoiI'h sake don't let
go!" Denniaon managed to ge Kelly o\er
to hia side of tbe mountain and then pulled
Burke up. He brought li s hat with him.

School of Penmanship.
The young man with a bad handwriting
who seeks employment among business men
finds there is no demand for his awkwardness at any price. Everyone who uses a
pen should write legibly and attractively.
There is no excuse in these days for a young
person to write in a slovenly manner. This
should be left to those of a past gen-ration,
who were educ tted before the daya of business training schools. Here all of ordinary
intelligence and application can acquire a
good business handwriting, the value of
which is not easy to compute.
The Nanaimo Business College has a
special department of penmanship, at the
head of which is Mr. J. R. Denneny, who
iB acknowledged to be not only one of the
finest penman in the world, but one of the
beat teachers and developers of good pen
manship in others.

SEALING IN BEHRING SEA.
Persons interested in sealing in Behring
Sea or intending to engage in the business
will do well to read the lentrthy dispatch
from Washington published in our issue of
yesterday. The dispatch gives a synopsis
of the bill introduced in the House of Representatives of the American Congress by
Mr. McCreary, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on the subject of
sealing in Behring Sea by American citizens.
The bill is designed to carry into effect the
award rendered by the Tribunal of Arbitration at Paris under tbe treaty to that end
between Great Britain and the United States
which was concluded at Washington in
February of last year. Similar legislation
will also no doub'. at once be introduced in
the Imperial Purlin ment by the British
Government, and will, we think, also be
concurred in by the Dominion Government at
Ottawa by legislation of alike sort introduced in the Dominion Parliament at its
next session. This c mcurrent legislation
trill of course be binding on Canadians as
well as Americans, hence its special interest
to the people of this Province, and to all
Canadians and Britiah subjects everywhere.
The provisions of the McCreary Act are to
become operative when tbe President of the
United States shall by proclamation announce that the British Government has
adopted the measures necessary to give
effect to the regulations agreed upon by the
Tribunal of Arbitration at Paris. We need
not here give a synopsis of the McCreary
Act. That has already been done sufficiently
in the dispatch which we published yesterday, and to it we refer our readers for details. It ought to be studied by every
master of a ship engaged in the sealing business, and by the owners also.
to reply to Mr. Kitchen at all. The Premier in his reply to Mr. Forster'. rambling
remarks, briefly explained, that he had not
argued, as that gentleman seemed to imagine
against Government control of railways,
against the building of them by the Government, or against the establishment of such
enterprises with public money. The Speaker seeing no one else rising called three
times, "are you ready for the questionT'and
rang the division bell. Mr. Brown, as
though arroused from a comfortable nap,
then innocently asked the Speaker, "Did
you ring the bell?" and on receiving an affirmative answer, at once sat down. Mr.
Beaven then got upon his feet and protested
tbat when a resolution of want of confidence, such as was moved by Mr. Kitohen,
was presented, the Government Bhould
make soms sort of reply. Hon. Mr. Davie
remarked that there was nothing to reply
to. Mr. Beaven who was still not satisfied
blamed the Sneaker for not allowing the
Government the courtesy of a reply. The
Speaker said, amid the laughter and applause of tbe House, that they had not complained. Mr, Beaven then proceeded to
complain on his own account, saying that he
had intended to address the House, but had
waited for the explanation which tbe Government should make when a motion of
censure was offered. Mr. Beaven continuing to grumble, the Speaker asked what the
hon. gentleman was speaking to, and pronounced the discussion closed. The motion
was then put and lost on a division of ten to
twenty-one. Such are the tactics of the opposition and their method of conducting a
debate. It is in faot simply a wasting of
the time of the House, offering motions
whioh they cannot support by argument,
and them grumbling ad libitum.
OPPOSITION TACTICS.
Hon. Mr. Beaven, the leader of the Opposition, some time ago made the extravagant and croaking statement thai the con-
vertion of $1,700,000 s.x and four and one-
half per cent, bonds into three per cents
would cost the Province upwards of $600,-
O00, that is, that more than one third of the
total amount would be wasted in the operation. On Wednesday afternoon last Hon.
Mr. Turner, the Minister of Finance, came
to the Legislative Assembly prepared to
go into the question. He asked leave to
explain the subject of the conversion of the
bonds,which appeared to have been so much
misunderstood. But Mr. Beaven objected
on the ground that such an explanation was
out of order and should not be allowed,
oth er wise every member who was misunderstood or misrepresented could claim the
right to speak. Hon. Mr. Davie argued
that the Minister of Finance had a right to
speak first on the motion to adjourn the debate, and in the second place because it was
asserted by the Upposition that he had
failed to make an explanation of the matter.
Mr. Beaven, however, still objected that
the explsna Inn of the Finance Miniater was
not in oril* i . n*i th�� Sp- ker decided the
.point in ln�� fawn-. I* he c appears that
the leader uf '.he Oppsoilion took advantage of a technical rule of debate
to prevent the explanation of
a matter in which the oountry at large is
interested, and which is either not understood or else is deliberately misrepresented
by the Opposition. Hon. Mr. Turner is
therefore clearly justified in claiming tbat
tbe Opposition do not want an explanation,
perhaps on the ground suggested by the
Premier that they wished the falsehood told
by their leader to get a good start before
the truth could be made known by the man
best informed on the subject. This is a fine
example of Opposition tactics, but we think
the public at large will concur with us in
saying that it is not altogether to their
credit.
Another matter which does not redound
much to the credit of the Opposition is the
way they managed the debate on Mr.
Kitchen's voluminous want of confidence
motion. The hon. gentleman was not able
to support hia motion with anything that
bore even a resemblance to argument, and
Mr. Foster, his seconder, was if possible
still more feeble and irrelevant. Mr. Foster's speech was simply a rambling disquisition on single tax, state sooialism, and
matters of that sort. The member* of the
administration did not think it worth while
Mb. Kkitii has again made himself the
laughingstock of theHouse by comparing Mr.
Beaven to the archangel Gabriel. The last
time he had occasion to belaud the leader of
the Opposition he said his face shone like
the face of Moses when he descended from
the mount. Mr. Knith ought really to
have some mercy on his leader and not make
him as ridiculous as he makes himself. Mr.
Beaven, who is not exactly a fool, must be
thoroughly ashamed of his admirer and his
absurd oomparisons of him to celestial per*
sonages.

The pkopli of Paris are panic-stricken
and excited beyond their power of self-control by fear of the anarchists and their
bombs. If a man were to put a tin box
under his arm and proceed to wulk along
one of the streets of the city, he would be
instantly arrested by a squad of frightened
policemen and relieved of his box. The
latter would be carried off gingerly and
with the utmost oare to be examined by a
public analyst, and the man himself would
be marched off to prison, till it was ascertained what his box contained. In point of
fact the anarchists are making themselves
public nuisanoes all over Europe, and if
they go on as they are doing will not only
make themselves and their principles universally abhorred���they are so already by all
but the lowest, most ignorant, and lawless
classes���but they will force all civilized
Governments to outlaw the whole faotion.
The British Government will no doubt be
the last to do so, but public opinion will in
the end force Mr. Gladstone and his colleagues to take positive and energetic action
against them, and to ask Parliament for
power to drive them out of England and
keep them out. Indeed thit is what ought
to be done, without any more delay.
Thk Spanish Americans, to all appearance, -would not be happy without a civil
war of some sort to keep them umused.
The little Central American states of Nicaragua and Honduras are now at it hammer
and tongs, but fortunately or otherwise
there does not seem to be many lives lost.
The other day a great battle took place on
the river Wauko, wherever that may be,
between the troops of Nicaragua and those
of Honduras. The battle, it is reported,
was a hot one for a Central Amerioan fight.
Just four persons were killed, one of whom
was an American, who with other Americans was helping the Nicaraguans.
The Honduras battalians, it appears, were defeated. This Central
American squabble seems if possible to be
even more absurd and redioulous than the
Brazilian war. The American government
should send a little sticking plaster to both
the hostiie armies, and advise them to go

The Dime Novel in London.
"Cyclone Kit; or, the Young Gladiator"
has led two of his disciples into serious
trouble. The whirlwind gentleman was, it
appears, a daring young highwayman who
defied Scotland yard and Pinkcrton's detectives combined and lived on other people's
purses. He was the idol of two lads in
Highgate named John Baker and John
Stanmers. They always carried I he record
of his life, well-thumbed and beautifully
unbound, in their pockets, and recently determined to imitate his exploits. But they
found the reality very different from the
romance. Instead of riding away on a cyclone with the four purses and six silk handkerchiefs whioh they had stolen from shops
near Highgate Archway, they found
themselves before an officer of the police
station, who calmly said, "take down your
pants." It was a trying moment for the
two followers of the dashing Kit. The idea
of such an indignity had never arisen. But
they took them down, and only appreciated
what the afteimath of a cyclone really
meant when they attempted to sit down
after the laat of the six strokes had been ad.
ministered. Stanmers was then allowed to
go home, with mind and epidermis thoroughly disillusionised; but Baker was
ordered by the magistrate at the North
London police court to think for a month
over his follies in gaol. In addition to the
life of Kit he had in his pocket a sensational
story called "The Locked Valley." He is
now in it in reality.��� London Daily Telegraph.

At a meeting at Cardiff yesterday of the

also that of keeping up the present standard

just completed, there are now 63,000
members associated with the Monmouthshire and South Wales Miners' Permanent
Provident Society, the whole of whom, it is
stated, have contracted out of the Em

A Chinaman Suffers Death.
A Chinaman suffered an awful death four
miles from Union on Wednesday morning,
being run over by the cars behind a passing
locomotive. The unfortunate Chinaman it
appears was, with a number of his mates,
boarding the cars whilst in motion, and
slipped, falling with his head on the track,
the car �� heel,) passing over it and severing
it from hia body, which waB horribly man
gled. The head was carried some distance
From the trunk. The Chinaman was one of
a gang that worked for the Union Colliery
Company and who constantly travelled
backwards and forwards on the cars.
Piracy at Texada.
A letter was received yesterday from
Texada stating that some partiea are
practising piracy on the Northern Coast of
the Island. On Feb. 5 some men stole the
steel wire rope from the drum of the Puget
Sound Iron Mining Co., and a large canoe
from the miners on the island. After this
they stripped a sloop lying in Blubber Bay,
chopping down the mast and stripping it of
all ropes, bloeks and tackle. Upon observing the robbery, four men from the Lime
Kiln, gave chase in a boat and after a pur
suit of nearly 20 miles, they had to give it
up when within 1$ miles off. The sloop,
however, outsailed the boat, and the latter
having no provisions, the ohasers had to
give up the pursuit. On their return they
reported the matter to Mr. Manson, J. P.,
whom they saw ou the ss. Comox. It is believed that some of the hand loggers are the
aggressors. The thieves left a skiff behind
them which may prove a key to identification.

-ways tenderly guard her and your boy!
Will wo not, Ralph?" The young captain pressed his lips to Eustace's brow
and sobbed aloud. Many an older cheek
���was wet with tears. A few more faint
���breaths, nnd then the kind brother, the
loving Bon, the devoted husband, the
truly Christian patriot, yielded up his
life for his country I
I make no attempt to describe the
mourning in tho camp or the anguish at
home when Ralph and Rose brought the
remains of one so deservedly loved aud
honored back to the stricken family.
Such sorrows are all too well understood.
Very grievous was this loss to Mr. and
Mrs. Newton, who had given him a son's
place in their hearts, but having unreservedly given him with their other sons
to their country's cause, knowing that
he went to face death, they could, while
bitterly grieving, still say, "Thy will be
done."
Of the wife, whose heart was knit to
her husband's from earliest childhood,
the young babe, who was never to know
bis father's face, I may not speak. Hers
was a sorrow that mortal may not trespass upon. God only can bind up thi*
broken heart. By his love her soul may
���will���find rest and peace.
The night before this sad battle Eustace had sat for more than an hour wit'::
his brothers and Rose. She was to remain in a temporary hospital at a snit.i-
able distance from the field, ready to give
care and attention to such of tlie wounded as the next morning's battlo iu_.
bring her. From this sweet rister, who
bad so nobly followed them, they had no
secret. They knew that tho morrow wa *
full of peril and would dawn upon one
of the most fiercely contested fields of
the whole war.
After some time spent in this discussion Eustace turned the conversation to
the anxious hearts at home. He read
them a letter he had received that evening from his wife, in which she spoke
with a mother's pride of his Utile son and
with much tender longing that he could
jee the child if only for an hour. Inclosed was a picture of the babo in her
arms. Rose and her brother were enthusiastic in their expressions of dells nt
at the evidently faithful picture of tr*.*n
loved sister and their little nepl.-��.
Their loving remarks were occasion*/:.'
mingled with a laughing reproach of
Etastace for concealing his possession of
such a treasure.  .
But George, noticing that he had been
unusually silent during this joyful, half
���playful conveBBttlon which tho letter
and picture had caused, repcllly tuider-*
stood that the husband's aud father's
heart was yearning for one look upon
t'.ioso he so dearly loved, ami doUbtk^S
(thoughts of the coming sirup 1? i:'.-".-
fled with other emotions. A BigniUcttl't
look from George sufficed to check
Ralph's humorous speech and gradually
change the conversation. Eut Eusta-.o
noticed tho change and understood t'.io
���reason. He looked up and tried to n:r.'.3
upon them i:i his old, loving way, but
suddenly dri; ?ed his head upon the
table beside L._.
For tv.r.v.y minutes all were silent.
God only knew the storm that tv. *;ft
over that motionless Qg-ure. but whin l;e
���raised his head the darlmess had C*_,
tlie storm hod passed, and a holy calm
shone upon his face���a peaco such lis
,c!ose communion with God only c::n
bring had transfigured hi .i. aud years
will never efface that expression from t
the minds of those who sympathized '���
with what they knew must havo lieen *
the agony that preceded it. Roso wiU
���tell you that from that hour she iV.lt
assured that the golden gates had Opened,
giving him a foretaste of the glory to
.soon to bo realized.
After a moment's silence Eustoco
calmly referred to the great burden ths.:
had weighed upon his heart for hot * ���
and remarked that he hail been nm.'r
tlie impression that ho should fall in tie
Immediate struggle. Ho had been ui!:.-
ious to speak fully to them, but i ..* 1
waited till ho Could feel i.i.t his ot.:.
heart was resigned to his Father's tv*...
Now he could speak to them with composure. -,
He then urged upon his brothers the
���importance of entering upon the morrow's labors with every thought ccr.<. :*> |
trated upon tue work, prepaiv.. to banish '
rM personal feeling,  to know nothing
save that the enemy were beforo them
and with God's help mtist bo de*. trtefl, '
even if it cost the dearest friend tr their j
.own lives.    Entering upon  tho little \
with this entiro self abrogation and I rusting to the Almighty arm for assistance*
they wero sure to conquer.   II! .0 foil, he
looked to his brothers to load l:ij in*-.::.
He needed no response from tlie siera,
pale faces before him. No 'word x:M
spoken. Their hearts wero too tall* Ev.t
the long embrace, aa each Lro" rr!Ifc
his tent and as Rose bowed her head one
moment on his breast and then pmt.cda
lingering kiss upon his lips, told more
than words could havo done how fondly
nnd truly their hearts were with him in
richest affection. Tho next morning an
orderly handed Rose a letter inclosing
one to her sister, evidently written after
they parted the night before.
If I (all In the aiming battle, Rosle, irtro the
Inclosed to my precioos wife; If not, dostroy it.

With that sacred letter we havo nothing to do. That the merciful Father was
near this noble family in the hour of
their deepest trial, as he had been when
lesser clouds overshadowed  them, wn
j^GoocryOBfmmg'ttt, XBttLq
cannot doubt It has not been my intention to manufacture a romance from
the simple sketch of two families. I only
wished to take some of the most prominent events transpiring at a crisis in our
country's history that has tested the
character, separated the "dross from the
pure gold" more surely than any other
period has ever done.

_n orderly handed Rose a letter.
Honor, truth, industry and a full true',
in our Father's unfailing caromakecourageous, self sacrificing natures and h:'.ppy
homes, not exhaustless riches or (stately
mansions. In this unsettled period of
our country's history, when each day
surprises us with sudden and startling
changes, when tho poor are exalted and
the rich brought low, it may be wise to
inquire if anything can moro surely secure competence and permanent happiness, dispel repining and despondency,
than cheerful industry and contentment.
I havo hoped this simple narrative ol
life's vicis:-:*.mles with which every wcoli
is full mi lit cnoblo com6 young rradci

and well lv.-nlnled mind.
Our country teems with just such
characti *rn : s I havoprrtrayod, but quiet
nnd unobirurivo in their goodness lw*-
cause they are too fully occupied tc*
"sound it t"u:* pot before them." The
lessons, vhey might teach are learned only
by the observant, careful searchers after
the "right way."
TBI IUD*,
Harmless Swearing.
One of those rather shocking atoriet
which one hears occasionally regarding
Admiral Ooldsborough, represents him
as inquiring of the chaplain how hia
labors with the sailors prospered, to
which the reply was that satisfactory
progress was being made, except that
the men could not be induced to abandon swearing so long aa their officers
set them a bad example. A contributor
to Kate Field's Washington, in narrating the incident makes the admiral rejoin: "Tut, tut, man, that is not to be
helped; the officers all swear; I do it
myself sometimes, but I don't mean
anything���not a bit more than yon do
by your praying."
SLAVERY   IN   OLD   ENGLAND.
The Bjrstsm Not Entirely Abolished Well
On In the Seventeenth Century.
Slavery in England was of very
ancient standing. Ciesar states that it
existed as an institution among the
Celts, and in Roman England the conquered natives were held in a state of
serfdom. In Saxon and early Norman times the children of the old English peasantry and captives taken in
war were sold like cattle in Bristol
market and many were exported to
Scotland and Ireland. "Doomsday
book" states that the slaves numbered
twenty-five thousand. Soon after the
conquest the distinct slave class ceased
to exist and the slaves were merged
with the lower class of eeorls under the
general designation of villeins. The
villeins in early feudal times were annexed to the land and were devisable
as goods and chattels, but in process of
time tho higher class of villeins gained
a title to the land on which they
worked, and after the reign of Richard
II. we find little reference to villeinage.
Although the church had eurly succeeded in putting an end to the English
slave traffic by the canon of the council
of 1102, slavery was never abolished by
any positive enactment; and, according
to the Brooklyn Eagle, it was not till
1660 that the last remnants of the
feudal system were finally swept away.
Slavery was abolished, but slavery did
not cease, for until the time of George
III. colliers were bought and sold, and
if they left the estate to which they belonged were brought back by force. It
was not till the year 1775 that an act
was passed by which they were declared
free and were put on the same footing
aa other servants.
The advertisement of the brigand
Candimo, in the Journal of Sicily, complaining of a correspondent's letter, ia
curiously illustrative of the march of
civilization. He is still pursuing his
profession at the head of a considerable
band, and he begs to state, "through
your esteemed columns," (for which
purpose he forwards five francs) that
the remarks in question aro injurious to
him. "We do not touch the poor who
work for their living, but only the rich.
Nor do we kill persons with a dagger,
as ia infamously asserted of tha man
Oaaaetaro; we shot him!"

THE ART OF SHOPPING
The art of shopping is not Becetsarily to make at all times a good bargain, but to secure a fair equivalent of the money spent, and to be able to do
this with the least expenditure of time and tr uble.
A   GOO 3D _3_^.i?G-___.iisr
Is distiiig ished from a cheap bargain, but in these days of bargains aud bargain-days, when from one end of Canada to the other���yea, and ihe
United State", too���the newspapers are crying bargains���and we read about bargains in this thing, and bargains in that thing, when bargains are by
many moie to be sought after than wisdom, and when every dealer in the country from the "peanut vendor" to the "merchant prince" call*- everything
a bargain���in these days it is not so easy to distinguish a good.bargain from the.cheap one.
THE   ZRICSTTLT   OF   SHIOIPIPIIISrGh
Shoull be a feel ng of satisfaction with the goods purchased. A sense of haviEg accomplished what you set out to do, and that in a reasonable
and sensible manner.    Not a tired-to-death feeling, and an uncertainty as co whether that forty-nine cent article was worth fifty cents after all.
"WIE   &J��TZ~  T_E3I_A_T   TUEEE!  "WC  JUC-AJST
Who desires to make an art of shopping will fasten her faith to the store that proposes to give her always the cash value for her money. It is for
the trade of all who desire good bargains, as we distinguish them, that we work.
