Pakis, Feb. 12.���Edon Brentou, 2.'i years
old, threw a bomb in the Cafe ol   the Hotel
Terminus at th** St. Lizare  railway station
this evening.    The bomb  exploded   in   the
middle of the room   and   wounnod    twenty
persons.    An instrumental concur, began in
the Cate ou ihe ground floor of   the hotel at
8 o'clock.    Shortly  before   nine  o'clock   a
pale thin young man  with   a light   pointed
beard paid for a drink which he had   taken
at a table in the middle   of the   room,   and
started to leave.    When   near   the door he
turned suddenly,  drew  a   bomb   from   his
eoat'aud threw it towards a gri.A,j of  per-
Bona     who     had    sat     next      io      him.
The    bomb    struck     an    electric     light
fixture,    fell    ou    a   marble   -Utile    aud
exploded.     The  great   hotel  and   station
were rocked by   the   shock.    Tue   mirrors
windows and   doors, were blown to atoms.
The ceiling was rent   -nd   the  walls were
cracked.    A dense,   offensive smoke filled
the cafe for a few  minutes,  and in its obscurity the bomb-thrower eecaped.    When
the smoke cleared  away, five  persons were
found severely   wounded   and   fifteen  had
slight injuries.    The bomb had been filled
with bullets and   rough bits of iron, which
had riddled the furniture and  walls and inflicted most of the  wounds.    After  leaving
lhe cafe, uu    boriib-Lln'ower   started  down
the street nn a i un.    Three  policemen  ha d
just passed  in an omnibus when  the explosion occurred.    They were going on duty
aud jumped to the street the moment they
Baw    the    fugitive.      The    young    man
turned   on   them    as     they    called    to
him     to   stop,     and    fired   fivi     shots.
Policeman  Boissen fell, badly wounded  iu
the  side.    Policemen Lenoir and Bigo, however, continued  the pursuit   and with the
help  of   Policeman   Barbns   a.'i*'   a waiter
named   Xiftbier, uvorpc.*.'<*._   ui_? irreated
the bomb thrower.    They took  him to the
police station in the Rue de Moscow, where
after some hesitation  he gave his name and
age to the perfect of police.    M. Laurent,
chief secretary to M. Dubois, minister of the
interior, and   several   other   high   officials
were summoned  to  the station and the examination of the prisoner was beguu. Police
Commissary   Cavel    takine   the   evidence.
Meantime  the sound of   tho   explosion, the
smoke and the cries of the wounded had attracted a great crowd  to the Hotel Terminus.    Doctors  Serene, Bouffee aud Thiysun
offered their sorvices.    They obtained bandages and   drugs   from   an apothecary and
dressed the wounds of the  injured, some of
whom had been carried  to rooms in the hotel, others to   drug Btores   in the neighborhood.
Later.���The United Press correspondent
was admitted to the Rue de Moscow police
office shortly after the arrest. Breton sat
handcuffed by policemen. He showed the
effects of his hasty flight and tussle with the
police Otherwise he looked calm and comfortable. The removal of his outside coat
had revealed a collarless flannel shirt and
the general garb of a workingman. In his
pockets, the police had found a pair of brass
knuckles, a dagger, a Swedish knife, a six
chambered revolver, a gold half louis, two
franc pieces, eleven sous and small silver
locket containing a lock of brown hair, tied
with a ribbon. At the first he refused to
talk, telling the police that it was their
business to find out who he was. After
giving his uame and address, he again became silent. Eventually he added that he
waB a cabinet maker, and had arrived in
Paris from Marseilles this morning, "Yes,
I am au MiurJii**," he exolaimed tiat ly
response to reiterated questions, "and tho

Any one acquainted   with these   conditions
could think that the ^national   election   on
Malch'Sat would be  interrupted, nor  could
anyone be deceived by the  tooiish manifestations  of   Barbara,   issued   oue   hundred
miles from the  scene of operations.    Senor
Mendonca   attributes   the   recent   unusual
activity of the insurgents' agents to the concerted effort  commenced a  week  ago in all
lhe European capitals as well  as  iu Washington, to  secure a recognition as  belligerents.    Although thiB has signally failed in
every instance, a circumstance  which   is in
itself significant as indicative of the view all
the great   powers  take of the affair.    The
rumors are  circulated with   increased per-
sistency.    It is   incredible   to   Senor   Men-
done* thai   lhe government, which   always
keeps   linn    wen    informed,    should    have
omitted to let him know of such  important
events as the  alleged progress of an   insurgent   column    through    the    loyal    states
of   Santa   Catherina  and   Parana,  having
for its object a land assault on Rio   and   of
the cities to  have   been   captured   in   Rio
Grande do Sul.    For many   years   the government has maintained   a   force   of   eight
thousand regulars under Secretary  of   War
Moeura, in the Btafe of Rio Grande do   Sul,
and tne insurgents have  been   kept   almost
constantly across the   border   of   Uruguay.
The legislature of   the  State   has   held its
sessions without interruption, the Governor
has never b"en molesttd  and   the   minister
deems it beyond possibility that   such giins
could be mado hy >be in��uffici--nt T*inrv*V'<*'r *-f
poorly mgunized   insurgents   in   the   raid,
from Uruguay   on   the   frontier.    But the
statement,   that   an    army    haB    marched
as   far   as   Parana   on   its   way   to    Rio,
is,      in      his      opinion,      utter      preposterous.    He    said:   "The    States   of    Sao
Paulo and Minas  Corcas are the most prosperous aud populous of Brazil.    We have a
population of six million and they are thor
oughly loyal.    It is ridiculous to think that
an offensive army  could  exist within their
borders.    Nobody that  knows a Bide of the
sentiment of these states could imagine anything bo nonsensical as that claim.    Besides
if the insurgent force were  composed exclusively of cavalry   they   could   not have ad
vauced so   fer   in   so   short a time for they
were   scattered   and   repulsed   at Bage on
January 12th.    The only   rebel   victory in
the past two months was that at Paranagua
which may have occurred   but  has not been
deemed of sufficient importance for the rebels to publish until making their final effort
to becure recognition as  bellgerents.    Even
that was more   of  a narrow escape from destruction than a victory."
Advocate Free Trade for France.
Pakis, Feb. 12.���In the Chamber of
Deputies to-day, M. Jules Charles Roux, a
well-known manufacturer of Marseilles, a
member of the Tribunal of Commerce and
Chamber of Commerce of that city, made a

was ruining the country. The statistics
showed that sin ie a protective policy had
been adopted there had been a yerrly falling off of 2,CC3,0(3 tons in the amount of

a Buicidal one aud he urged that the government go back to some form of free trade.

The New Pr sbyteriau church waa filled
W'ith a laige crowd last night to listen to

case. A regular ovation was given by the
enthusiastic audience to the fair singers at
the close of each selection, and the ladies
all received encores. The choruses and part
songs given by the Presbyterian church choirs
of this city and of Wellington were particularly good, that of the Wellington choir
being espetially admired; whilst the solos
of Mr. J. G. Brown were greeted in every
case with hearty encoreB. The instrumental selections given were of the best and
greatly appreciated by all. In the interval
between the first and second parts of the
programme the Rev. McRae made some
very appropriate remarks on the occasion,
also informed those present tbat a flash
light photograph would be taken of all
ent. He then called ou the Rev. McMillan for an address. The reverend gentleman replied by humorous references to
his own resemblance to tho eleoirio light
supply of the eveniug on being expected to
dotheunexpected. Hocongralulaled the people of Nauaimo on their sensible Christianity
and on the friendly feeling existing between
the different religious denominatious.
The Rev, Campbell next spoke and alluded to the great reHpect he had for the present pistor of the church���the Rev, McRae.
He then made humorous references regarding the lights aud spoke ou the beauties of
the new church, which was the finest in the
Province and he hoped the buidiug would
be kept full aud that all would use their
utmost to help the pastor iu this direction.
The Rev. McRae in reply felt much gratified at the compluiiBiit paid him by the previous speaker und after a few remarks called
on the Ruv. Canon Good who said that he
was pleased at being allowed to say a few
words and further stated that it had been
his deepest study to create a friendly and
brotherly feeling between the different le-
ligious denominations in this town. The
canon then congratulated those present on
the excellent programme that had been
given aud especially mentioned his pleasure
at listening to the selections by the Wellington Presbyterian church choir, which he considered lhe fea'ure of t e eveniug.
The Rev. Maitland then spoke and agreed
with Canou Good in complimenting the
Wi'lli.ig'i'u choir, In* also congratulated the
ladies of the town church on the excellent
spread that they had provided stating that
t! p Rev. McMillan and himself had both
done remarkable justice to the goodly
vi.mils set before them iu the adjoiuitig
building. He congratulated the members
of the chnrch on iho fine building that they
n *w had iu.1 the success of the whole of the
i<p> uing ceremonies and concluded with a
hope that they would all pull together.
The Rev. Rogers then came forward and
congratulated those present ou tho auspicious occasion, and in the course of his remarks gave an amusing story illustrating
the explanation of what a miracle was to an
infidel who required information. The reverend gentleman then said that he did not
wish to spoil the good opinion that the
audience already had of the Wellington
contingent by speaking at too much length ,
and with a few humorous remarks retired^
The Rev. Young stated that he had the
honor ol* being present at the dedication of
the new church and also had administered
the first baptism in it. He had thoroughly
enjoyed listening to the different selections
during the evening aud quoted i is special
pleasure at the excellent performance of the
Wellington choir. The Reverend gentleman went on to slate the interest that he
had felt in the new building, having watch-'
ed it gradually being built up to its finish,
ard his pl'iisure al seeing the beauty and
"i*/- f 'he completed edifice. The Rev.
M> II i* hen spoke at some length and gave
a hu i.nious sketch illustrating the different
sides lo every question, He stated that
there would be a childrens meeting to-day.
The proceedings closed by the arrival of
tho Elite Btudio photographers, who after
the audience had arranged Uiemselves aB
desired, and a good deal of good humored
exchange had taken place, they focussed the
camera ou the crowd and took a couple of
flash light photos.
Whilst the addresses were beiug given by
the different clergy during the evening,
several well known miuis'.ers of different
denominations were oallfd oti if present to
addicss the gathering. Unfortunately,many
were absent from the meeting and were
therefore not heard from.

Os Friday the price of Miy wheat in
Chicago fell to sixty and three-eight cents a
bushel, which ia eighteen cents a bushel below the lowest price a year ago. On Saturday morning; the price advanced to sixty
and a half cents, but immediately it began
to fall again, and gradually dropped to sixty
cents. The news created a sensation in

many traders have suffered serious loss from
the continual decline in the price of  wheat.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1894.
REFORM   OF   THE   HOUSE   OF
LORDS.
The London despatches say that the Lib
eral party in Great Britain, or at all events
the Radical members of it, are thinking
seriously of making the next general election turn on the question of reform or abolition of the House of Lords. This will
doubtless be a much more popular issue on
which to appeal to the masses than Home
Rule would be. For the latter they care
very little, but the cry against the hereditary chamber for opposing and rejectingabill
passed by a majority of the representatives
in the popular chamber, who were elected
by the free voles of the people, will no
doubt be a telling one, and may result in
again giving Mr. Gladstone a small majority.
The action of the Lords in amending���
mutilating, the Liberals call it���the Parish
Council's Bill, and the Employers' Liability
Bill, makes the c_e against them still
stronger in the eyes of the Radical electors
of the working classes, to whom especially
the Gladstonians and Home Rulers will
appeal. These men are generally far too
ignorant to appreciate the danger to Imperial interests involved in Mr. Gladstone's
Irish policy, and, indeed, for the matter of
that, in his general policy. They will all
be ready to cry out with one voice for the
abolition, or, at leaBt, the extensive reform
of the Upper House, forgetful altogether
for the moment ot Home Rule, and the imminent danger to Britiah power which it iu-
volves.
It is probable that a majority of Mr.
Gladstone's Cabinet will vote for a campaign
against the Peers, but Mr. Gladstone is said
to be unwilling to lead such a campaign.
However, we think there is no doubt he
wift consent to do so, if Home Rulers and
Radicals demand it, as affording the best
chance of success for the party. At all
events we are confident that Mr. Gladstone
will have no hesitation in) eadingademand for
a reform of the H'nite of L *nls iu tho d.ruction of the limitation of the hereditary principle, though it in iy well lm that he is uot
yet prepared to go to the length of demanding the abolition of the peers. And in truth
the House of Lords needs reform, and many
intelligent men who are generally opposed
to Mr. Gladstone's policy, especially when
it takes, as it ofteu does, tho shape of want
of patriotism, would support him in a moderate and well-considered reform of the
House of Lords. Many of the peers, who
sit in that assembly simply by virtue of
their hereditary rank, are but ill-fitted by
natureor education to discharge intelligently
the duties of legislators. The Peers of England are on the whole a body of highly educated, intelligent and moral men, but there
are black sheep among them who ought to
be excluded from the House of Lords if practical means could be divised to do so, which
would not work wrong to respectable members of the ordter.
Mr. Gladstone may perhaps be induced to
head tho demand for a reform of this sort,
which many of the peers would themselves
regard as being in reality in their own interests. And the House of Commons should
at the same time be thrown open to peers
who could succeed in getting elected, and
wbo would be willing to sit in the Commons
in preference to the Lords. This would afford a career to a large number of able and
ambitious young men, who under the present system are practically without, a career.
A reform of the House of Lords that would
exclude men of known depraved character
and habits, and which would throw open
the House of Commons to able and ambitious peers who wished to sit there, would
be for the national interests and for the interests of the peers also as a class, A few
sessions in the House of Commons would be
the best training that a young peer could
get for the proper discharge of Jus duties if
he should afterwards decide to retire from
from the Commons and take his seat in the
House of Lords, Bat this we imagine is not
the sort of reform of the Lords t hat the
Radicals and Home Rulers want.
It is announced in a despatch from Ottawa that it was decided at Saturday's
meeting of the cabinet to call parliament for
the 15th of March. There will we think be
oo further postponement.
It is reported in the London dispatches
that tbe Russo-German commercial treaty
was finally signed on Saturday. It is believed in commercial circles that the treaty
will be an undoubted success, and in political that it will tend to the preservation of
peace, but that it will not be a guarantee
against war. It is also announced that
Russia has given notice to France that the
Franco-Russian commercial treaty must be
terminated at the end of this year, if France
persists in putting into effect against Russia
the proposed duties on imported grain.
Perhaps this is an indication of the falling
off of the entente between Russia and France,
which Was so menacing to Germany and in
a less degree to Englaud���so menacing in
fact to the peace of Europe at large. The
Czar, it is said, was never personally favorable to the French alliance.
Mr. Gladstone and his wife have returned to London. The Premier was met
at Charing Cross station by a great crowd
of his admirers, who had assembled to welcome him on hiB return. When he appeared
he was greeted with hearty cheers by the
crowd. Mr. Gladstone seems to maintain
hia popularity in an extraordinary manner.
His strong hold on the masses is not to be
denied, though what he has really accomplished for England to deserve his popularity it would it not be easy to say. His
Home Rule policy, if he can succeed in
carrying out, bids fair to disrupt the United
Kingdom, expose England to tlie blows of
her enemies, and perhaps to ruin her em
pire. At the same time, under the unrestricted free trade policy which Mr. Glad
stone favors, there is much distress among
the masses. Thousands ate idle and many
in want of bread. The revenue is declining,
and so are both commerce and manufactures.
But Mr. Gludstone's popularity seems to go
on increasing, in spite of the depiesaion in
trade, manufactures, and the agricultural
interests, the danger of his policy, and its
practical failure. It can only be accounted
for on the ground either that the whole
thing is a popular craze, and therefore not
amenable to the laws of common sense, or
else that it is another illustration of the old
Latin maxim, quern thus rult perdere. prills
demenlat. Which it really is, time only will
show, but we hope not the latter, though it
must be confessed that it looks like it. We
may add that there is no longer any talk
about Mr. Gladstone's resignation.

addition to the Union school. '
For removing log jams on Cowichan, San
Juan and Koksilah rivers, $4,500 is provided, with $1,500 for similar work on
Chemainus river.

Cedar Distriot.
There is trouble in Cedar District about
the Institute Hall there. It appears that
wiien the building was first opened, at a
meeting of Ihe settlers, it was decided that
the Rev. Miller, or any religious denomination, could have the use of the hall free for
any charitable purpose. Now two out of
the three trusteesa elected wish the building
to be free for preaching or religious purposes.
A meeting was held last Saturday evening
to discuss the question and how the debt on
the hall should be paid off. Mr. Alger of
Cedar District put in claims for work done
on the building, which were disallowed, as
all work done by settlers in the district on
the hall waB considered to be given free and
for the benefit of the community. The
minutes ot the first meeting of the settlers
in connection with the proposed uses of the
hall have mysteriously disappeared, and the
inability of the trustee, to whom they were
handed, to produce them, has created much
comment in the neighborhood. The trustees
performed the "Bar them out" aot last Tuesday night when an entertainment and dance
were to have come off in aid of the organ
fund, aa they refused to open the doors of
the hall without receiving payment for the
uae of the same, notwithstanding the decision arrived at in the first meeting of
settlers. Another meetiug of the settlers is
to be convened shortly when it is believed
the trustees will be requested to resign.
I- is also understood that the Odd Fellow's
society can, owing to a miswording of the
lease, claim the use of the hall'for a year for
the sum of $5 per month which they have
agreed to pay, instead of for one day in each
week.
A petition is being largely circulated
through Cedar district for tbe election of
Mr. Haslam of that district, to be road
foreman, as Mr. Hill iB about to resign.
His resignation is muoh regretted.

In the New Barracks.
A large assemblage gathered to take part
in the dedication and opening of the new
Salvation Army larracka yesterday afternoon, the services in connection with whioh
will extend for a considerable period. At
3 o'clock in the afternoon yesterday the
band marched to the new hall from the old
one and the flag was hoisted, a service being
subsequently held in the building, the keys
also being handed over formally to the
officers. During the afternoon, the
band again promenaded the streets
going, as also did a number
of the Boldiers and lasses, to meet the ss.
Cutch and the visiting party coming over on
her. A banquet was served during tbe
evening in the old hall after which a big
publio meeting that was largely attended,
the hall being full, was carried on in the
new building. Brigadier Market's gave a
long and very interesting address to those
present who showed by the intense interest
with whioh they listenod to him how much
they appreciated his views. Other officers
alao spoke during the evening and prayers
were carried on at intervals, with singing,
the whole closing at a late hour.
Vanoouver.
The following is what Lowery, financier
and editor says: "Vancouver is the magic
city of Canada. Nine years ago where it
now stands there was nothing but an ancient
forest, and the meek, *fi**h enting Siwash.
To-day, it is a city of 19,000 souls, mostly
saved.
To a man from the Slocan it is like a
glimpse of Paradise. Electric cars to ride
on instead of bucking mulea. Feather beds
to sleep on and turkey every day. Then it
rains every other day, not a harsh, tough
rain accompanied by heavenly artillery, but
a genilc, steady and moist rain. The rain
in beneficial In harmony of horn s. The
wives of Vancouver men always have plenty
of 8oft water ou washing day.
At present the oity is dull, and we noticed quite a number of empty buildings in
different parts of the city. The hotel business iB very dull and jags are rarely seen.
We hear complaints on all sides of hard
times. Real estate is quiet aB the grave,
but the city is safe and will some day be a
high grade proposition. Living ia cheap
and you can get a meal for 20 oents. You
can alao get a meal for a dollar. We have
had several meals lately. Baths are 15 centa,
We are going to bring some back with us.
We are also loading up with a stook
of shaves at 10 cunts each. It costs
10 oents to waah a white shirt. We have
our shirt washed every day. We bought
twelve cigars for two bits and gave them to
a man who would not advertise. He waa
arrested for contaminating the atmosphere,
Vanoouver has many pretty ladies, and
although moat of them passed ua by aa
though we were a white check, atill they
oould not help admiring our mountain oom-
p'exion, and the diamonds we wore. Owing
to the distant look of resignation on our benign countenance we are frequently taken
for a parson. Thia is no news to our neigh-
bora.
The Metropolitan Club is a grand and
successful institution, but the limit in the
grand old game of poker is too small for an
enterprising man to taokle. Otherwise we
have no objeotion to thia popular olub.which
ia in a moat prosperous condition.���Nakusp

Open Letter from the Y.M.C.A.
Editor Tklkuram:
Sib,���To one ignorant enough, or to one
so far behind the times, as to know nothing
of phrenology, of course Prof. Cozens' leo-
ture of last evening would seem rather ambiguous, and perhaps nonsensical. But to
anyone who haB studied phrenology enough
to;give an unprejudiced opinion on the subject the said lecture would be perfectly
intelligible and would be well appreciated.
It is a pity that the "Science of the mind"
ia not at present more generally taught and
studied as it will be in the near future.
Perhaps this lack nf knowledge is due to the
said science being too deep for that class of
newspaper representatives who are much
better qualified to write up a dog fight or a
drunken row than anything pertaining to
science or religion or morality.
Thos. W. Mordkn.
Chamberlain Will Advise the Peers.
London, Feb. 12.���The Duke of Devonshire, leader of the Liberal Unionists, has
called a meeting of his parliamentary party
for Thursday. This meeting will be asked
whether or not the party shall support Lord
Salisbury against the Commons. Joseph
Chamberlain, Liberal Unionist, leader in the
Commons, will advise thePeers to surrender
rather than provoke the decisive conllict.
Traffic Stopped at Rio.
Lisbon, Feb. 12.���A dispatch from Rio
Janerio says: "Admiral Mello, aboaid the
insurgent warship Republic i, ia off Rio.
President Piexoto has stopped the water
aud bis supplies of Cobras island, which ia
held by the insurgents, and Admiral De
Gama haB threatened td fire at the president's palace unless the BHppUoebo restored.
The government's arrangements for reloading and unloading merchantmen have been

LOCAL  NEWS.
POLICE  COURT.
In yesterday's police court three caseB
were disposed of; there was ateo one renmud
and oue committal, Mr. Planta, S.M., and
Mr. Bate, J.P., presiding.
A man who was charged with causing a
disturbance in the public streets, on Saturday, pleaded guilty and was fined ��5, with
$4 75 costs.
Matthew Fletcher, oharged with shunting
seagulls iu Nauaimo harbor on Saturday
last, pleaded guilty, but in consideration of
the law, aud its being the first offence unilei
the act, be was allowod to go ou his own
recognizance to come up for sentence when
called on and to pay $5 costs.
Billy Luka, charged with vagrancy and
beggiug in the public streets, was remanded
for further inquiry.
The next case was that of the two hotel
thieves already reported in the paper. After
Mr. and Mrs. Steele had given evidence, Mr.
J. Towman, of Wellington, identified the
watch and ohain, saying that they originally
cost bim SI.'10. Mr. Howe of the Horse
Shoe hotel gave evidence as to the prisouers
coming to his house nn Friday evening laat
aud of their changing a sovereign and a half
of English money. Chief McKinnon gave
details of the arrest aud stolen articles f*. und
on the prisoners. Clarko would not make
any statement, but Haulou alias Hanley
alias Kelly made a statement. He claimed
to be an hontbt hard working man, giving
some particulars of his past carter aud
finally confessed having stolen the watch
and chain, the ��20 gold pieces and the English coins. He took all the guilt upon himself, making no mention of hiB fellow
prisoner. They were both committed and
will probably be tried by Judge Harrison
within a few days.
Opium Seizure.
It will be seen iu our despatch columns
that a seizure of opium has been made on
the ss. Empire at San Francisco. The drug
is said to come from Nanaimo, August
Blum was caught, in the act of taking it on
shore. The Empire is dated to leave San
Francisco for this port to-morrow, but the
case may probably detain the ship a few-
days.
Spider and Fly.
M. B. Leaviu's entirely new spectacular
production opens a oue night's engagement
at the Opera House ou February 111th with
the same company of fifty people who were
selected from both hemispheres for tbe
World's Fair engagement at Chicago, wh* re
this magnificent -spectacle* was produced for
one hundred nights to crowded houses. The
same gorgeous scenery, imported costumes,
electric and mechanical effects will be seen
here. The play has been entirely re-written, scarely anything remains of the first
text but the name. Many novelties have
been added. Notable features in the production is the Columbian ballet of
sixteen beautiful English dancers from
the Alhambra, London, headed by
Mile. Edith Craske, premiere danseuse, and
Henrietta Kosch, danseuse from the principal European thealies. The famous French
dancers,Mile. Nanou Pascal,Nalelle Russau,

Follies Bergere, Paris, aro said to be the
most daring, unique and bewildering of
Terpischorean artists, A grand transformation scene, illustrating American historical
events from 1492 to 1S93, is said to be a
master-piece of stage mechanism and scenic
art.
Everything in the production is said to
be new, but the name, and iu its new dress
more opportunities are given for hallos,
pantomimic tricks, electric aud mechanical
effects. Reserved seats now ou salo at

���"Whero iu Miss Le Burron's ljaiuir"
"Miss Maud's, do you menu, sir? O'i,
she put ofl some time ngo, uud for oer.
tain much more went out with her thau
she ever brought hero."
"Well, wo will seek MIsb Maud in her
own apartment." And as they turned
from the gossip loving servants they
heard the cook remark:
"Well, well, they'll have a breezy time
of it.   Glad it isn't me."
It was very evident that the aervantr
who had remained with Mrs. Le Barron
through tins night hail not learned of Es-
tella's marriage, pillage and liight.
Mr. and Mrs. Newton ascended to
Maud's apartments. All was silent, bu'
after a few moments' pause they knock'.**.
at the door. She was thero anil bade
them enter, but whon her father's be; t
friends stood before her she started i.:
alarm and made a movemont for a hasty
retreat. But suddenly checking herecL.
before Mrs. Newton could speak, she
turned on them with the wildest fnry depict rd on her face and almost shrieked:
"Why are you here?   I will not hear n i
-word.    Leave my room instantly.    You
come to exult over our fall.   I oan stiii,
for a few hours at least, claim a right to
my own chamber.    I bid you begone I"
"But my dear child," said Mrs. Newton, "listen to me a moment. We co*u.<*
in all love. Do trust us. We lose all u i
���Well as you. Then why should you imagine we mean anything 1 :t friflndslr.j
and tenderest sympathy?"
"I do not believe you���do not tn:
jrou and will not.   Who told you v.
needed any sympathy?   I for one havo
no desire for it."
"Mr. Dunbar came at Dr. Shelby's request to bring us here, aud, my daiiv
Maud, lrt us in some way comfort you."
"I tell you I want no comfort fro*m
you or anyone. Dunbar has,I presume,
told you how finely Stell has manage .
I think I am at well able to act for Jhj -
ielf as she."
"Oh, Maud! Matidl Do no such rn*':
thing as she has done, I entreat you. .1.
will bring you cily disgrace and misery.''
"Oh, never fear. I have nn fancy for
elopements. What I do I care not who
knows. It is too laco for any to previ...
it now anyway. The last trunk wer..
from thut room," pointing to a closs\\
door, "since you have honored me wi_
your espionage.
"Allow me," with a scornful, defiant
air, even while a shudder of disgr..
passed over her, "a'.'ow me to introdiu-
you to Mrs. Jacob Varney, a milliii- -
aire's wife, madam! Not quite so wil -
some a husband as Stella's, perhaps. 1;���������*
I shall have all that money can give, ij.i
what matter's it?"
"Ah, Maud, my dear childl Wnn'.
havo you done? How could Varney
countenance such an act under the circumstances?"
"What havo I done? Why, found myself a princely home whon my father fi
folly or crime���call it what you plea
���has cast nn* out from tins. What ',....t
Varney dune? Why, proved himself n
fool! Has he not for moi'o than aye:.:'
tormented me? And I during mat time
treated him with open, UiKlisgrusod coy-
tempt. And yet when I vent to him
yesterday and told him -boldly wo worii
bankrupted and disgraced; that Stella,
the vile creature, had robli"'! l .*��� of .* "'. i
had���oh, it makes me laugh t*-* thjuii
how the toothless old uo'.a;llil*uj1)c>etl
over my hand|"���and. with a gosvuvoc;
bitter loatl.iug she tossed !*i v iui:: . awn."
from her���"proteMnJj me a l-ousseaa
ii -.-tt week that should out'-lo nny in tl;-*
city, together with a pfaeoly sell'-*-
ment, if I would consent to iliftrry hi: -.
that very hour. Why, nn immedia
marriage was just what I was deu
-mlue-S onl And It Is done," said the
miforable girl, throwing herself on the
sofa, exhausted by the shameful recital.
Mrs. Newton went to her caressingly,
while her tears fell fast.
"Oh, Maudl You do not love this
manl How, then, can you ensure tho
home you havo sold yourae.,* for?"
"Lovo himl Oh, nol I have ever
loathed him. I bad once some roman! ic
notions about marrying for lovo and escaping from such a home as this has always been.
"But that Is all pastl When once 1
get my promised trousseau and settlement, I shall allow myself to be very little troubled with old Varney's society, 1
assure you. That would be intolerable.
I have lived thus far without love and
can continue to do so, while I now have
a position in tho most fashionable society
as high as wealth can command. Why
do you weep and look at mo so sad1.-.?
What would yon have me do?" she cried
wildly. "Go out to service? Starve in
tho streets���or worse? My mother's folly
and my father's shame have barred all
other chances for a homo but the ono 1
have chosen or rather accepted as a las*,
resort."
"Oh, nol nol my poor girl! A lovin;*-
heart was at your command, and you
scorned it, threw it aside for the goldei;
chain that now binds you and which will
eat like a canker into your soul."
"No. I never scorned Ernest Sherwood, neverl My whole heart was his.
But how was he received? Turned from
the door by harsh words from my mother and bitter insults from my father,
while I was jeered at daily for my lov.-
tastes and Estella's foreignw held up before me as a god."
"But, my dear Maud, when yon saw
the state of your father's affairs, if you
must so hastily seek a home, why not let
Ernest know your troubles?"
She started quickly to her feet. "Let
him know the deep disgrace that had
fallen? The loss of property he would
not value, but the shamel Tell Ernest
Sherwood that my father was a dishonored man���a forger���liable any moment to public arrest? Do you think 1
could do that, or do you know me so little as to suppose I would shame my
womanhood by offering myself to one I
respected���that I loved? If you but knew
mo, you would not wonder that I hate the
parents that have robbed mo of all that
I over valued! I leave within the hour,
and onco outside the gate I will never see
them again���never!"
From these passionate words her
friends suspected she had no knowledge
of tho terrible state of things below. A
few words revealed the fact that she
simply supposed her mother was in one
of those stormy fits she had often witnessed and her father, as usual, allowing tho excitement to wear itself out
by silence, though she acknowledged
that she was frightened by his appearance. When she fully understood the
truth, she was at first greatly shocked,
but her own selfishness soon rose above
all other considerations.
"If I had but known this sooner! Oh.
Ernest! Ernest!   But it is all too late!"
It is useless to prolong the scene. The
unhappy girl resisted all efforts to persuade her to show at least common respect and tarry till her father's body
should be laid to rest and her mother
placed in some asylum, and when from
the window she saw a superb equipage
dash up to the door she abruptly said
"farewell," and with a face in which all
of her ill governed pardons were warring with a better and tenderer mood she
rushed down stairs, and without accepting tho aid of her unfortunate and superannuated husband she sprang into the
carriage, and with the partner of her folly was soon borne from their sight.
That same afternoon Mrs. Le Barron
was quietly taken to the retreat selected
and tho next day her husband's remains,
in tho simplest and most unostentatious
manner, consigned to the grave.
Duncan remained till the servants were
dismissed on the following week, the
house safely closed and the key placed
in tho hands of those who were appointed to unravel the tangled web of the
late owner's dealings.
So closed tho tragedy that wonld be a
lifelong misery to some, but to the outside world it was but a "nine days' wonder," and other events soon swept it
from the publio mind, and Ik vas tor-
tfottsu, '
CHAPTER IX
The -avenlng after Le Barrort funeral
all the Newtons met in the home so soon
to pass from their hands. Mr. Newton
there informed his friends that he had,
as much as lay in his power, endeavored
to hasten the final settlement of all matters connscted with his late business. He
had met all who had claims upon the
iirm and brought the whole matter much
nearer a thorough adjustment than at
first he had any reason to anticipate. He
spoke with great feeling of tho respect
and kindness manifested toward him
personally by all concerned and their
voluntary request that he should appropriate all the personal property about
the house and grounds to his own use,
and they expressed their conviction that
ev%n more than that would be found
honorably his due.
Of course Le Barron's funeral had prevented the ride to the Montgomery place,
but now. finding there was every promise
of turning'his attention to some new
work, Mr. Newton desired that Eustace'i?
proposition should have immediate at
tention. It was therefore agreed that
early the next morning Eustace Bhould
escort Mrs. Newton to the farm and oi.
their return the feasibility of the project
should be finally settled.
Rose proposed that sho should accompany them and have one more ride on
i'Y.iry beforo she passed from their
hands, and turning sweetly to her lover
.liked if she might trespass on his gal
lautry for an escort. He excused him
t.olf on the plea of prior engagements
and expressed great regret that ho could
not enjoy such a treat. All this was
natural ouough, and Rose was satisfied,
for her eyes were not yet opened. But
tho quick flash that overspread his face
and died away as .rapidly rekindled Mr.
Newton's sorrowful suspicions, and the
earnest recognition that passed between
Dunbar and George told him that Jasper's manner had bat confirmed their
opinions.
It was painful to wait longer for a
positive denial or unmistakable admission of his treasonable proclivities. But
who could look on that sweet girl .by his
side and have tho courage to hasten a
denouement that might blast tho bright
beauty before them? These thoughts
passed with painful rapidity through
Mr. Newton's mind, and he had just
mastered the indignant impulse as
Ralph gayly offered to .act as his sister's
oavalier in place of her recreant knight
and suggestod that it might be well to
smuggle Alfred into the carriage with
the other party, and then, should first
impressions prove encouraging, George
and himself could remain to await orders and Alfred escort Rose home again.
