Manchester, Jan. 3.���The great ship
canal from Eastham to Manchester is now
an accomplished fact, and the town of
Manchester, forty miles from the seaboard,
can be reached by sea from New York about
ten hours after arriving at Liverpool. Th;i
means the sudden creation of a great port in
direct communication with all parts of the
world, close to and partly within the con
tines of an immense commercial city and
surrounded by au industrial population of
3,259,000. Besides the actual canal the
docks are most extensive. The smaller
docks and quays and upper reach will be
principally occupied by coasting vessels,
while in the larger docks will be moored
ships from the United States,Canada, India,
etc. At the other docks will be accommo
dations for cattle. In fact, Manchester has
at one stroke become one of the largest and
most important ports of the United Kingdom. The work is the outcome of a series
of long investigations in parliamentary commissions in the years 1883, 1881 and 1885.
The supporters of the canal, who spent
��150,900 in obtaining the act, were manufacturers and merchants of Manchester, and
the principal opponents were corporations
in Liverpool.
With the use of electrio lights steamers
will be able to navigate by night, au well as
by day, ami the whole length of the canal
will be traversed in about ten hours. Some
notion of the capacity of the canal may be
drawn by comparing iti depth with the
Suez and Amsterdam canals. The minimum
width of the bottom of the Suez is 72 feet,
and of that of Amsterdam 88 feet 7 inches,
while the Manchester is 120 feet. The
minimum depth of the Manchester and Suez
canals is 26 feet, and that of, Amsterdam 23
feet. The canal will be navigable without,
difficulty by merchant steamers of the
largest class. It is believed the quantity
of grain carried over the canal will be at
least one half that now handled at Liverpool. It is estimated that at least 105,000
tons per annum of fruit and vegetables
will at once be imported to Manchester by
thiB route. Ten large sugar merchants have
stated that not less than 300,000 tons of sugar per year will pass through the canal.
With regard to raw cotton, firms in the district owning 18,000,000 spindles declare that
nearly all the cotton they use will be
brought by the canal. Of outward cargo
there will be no lack, and textile manufacturers have testified a belief that about
500,000 tons per year will be dispatched by
the new canal.
The financial success of the enormous undertaking seems assured. The promoters
of the canal are confident of their ability to
secure very large aud remunerative traffic,
and estimates of profit based upon the capital as originally proposed were very favorable. The original capital of ��8,000,000 has,
however, now grown to nearly double that
sum, and anticipations are not now so sanguine as they formerly were. That there
are, however, enormous probabilities of
traffic cannot be disputed.
Tho opening ceremonies on New Year's
day attracted a vast crowd of people. The
official opening took place at 9:30 a.m. when
a proccs-ion composed of trading vessels and
steamers conveying the officials of the canal
and civic officials of Liverpool and Manchester and the principal eit ies along the
route, went from Eastham to Manchester,
where, the canal being formally declared
open, the trading vessels WHre Hocked and
the work of dischaiging their cargoes at
once begun. An immense multitude of
people lined the banks of the caual during
the passage of the opening procession, and
the popular enthusiasm reached a high
pitch. The route of the procession was
about, fourteen miles long. Probably 70,-
000 persons visited some parts of the canal
during the day. There was no hitch whatever io carrying out the day's programme,
th*- crowds everywhere being amenable to
police directions and the many barriers
erected along the line of the canal preventing accidents. Engineer Rowbottom of the
steamship Norseman, while attempting to
bo ird the steamer in the Latchford lock on
th** night of December 30th, missed his
footing in a fog, fell into the water and was
drowned. I

Vigorous Measures Against Anarchy.
Paris, Jan. 3.���The police raided the anarchist quarters in many towns in France
New Year's day; seized the forms and copy
of the anarchist journal Pen: Peinar, and

a brother of Paul Reclus, who has beeu
niisnuig since throwing the bomb.
At Havre the police searched eleven
house", seized �� lot of coriespondence, ana

is charged that a bomb was discovered at
Grenoble and 450 cartridges were found at
Allier. Fifteen militant Italian anarchists, all with criminal records, were
expelled from Nice. Up to this writing

"Messrs. Kitchen and Snord, M.P.P.'s,

It is stated in an American exchange that
a British Columbia syndicate has been formed to purchase coal heds in Jefferson county,
Wash. The story goes that the company
haB already secured the right of mineral
development to over 10,000 acres and has
Bubscribed a fund of ��15.000 for the purpose
of prospecting aud sinking shafts. Some
choice sumples of slate have already been
brought to the surface near Luke Hooker,
one mile from Port Townsend. An expert
geologist from Nanaimo says the indications
lor coal are as good as those found on Vancouver island. Near Stquim, back of Port
Discovery, in Clallam county, another party
of prospec ors are at work. The backers of
this enterprise are loc il capitalists. A shaft
300 feet deep is being sunk The specimens of coal thus far produced are identically the seme as the Vancouver island product. The experts are sanguine that beneath Quimper peninsula lies an immense
coal bed which is a southern coutiuualion of
the British Columbia coal fields.

this subject under consideration, and they
have devised a plan to suppress this illicit
traffic. Collecor of Cuaioms Milne said to
a Times man: "The authorities arc aware
that the coast islands form a veritable paradise for smugglers, but it is intended to
make the paradise as unpleasant as possible.
Vigorous efforts will be made to suppress
illicit trading. If any smugglers are caught
they will be made on example of. The
sealing schooners have all been cautioned
not to sell any boudod stores. Violators
will be punished to the full extent of the
law. The authorises are determined to
stamp out the business."���Victoria Times.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1894.
SALMON    PACKING    IN   BRITISH
COLUMBIA.
Salmon canning, it in well known, ia one
of the moat important industries of British
Columbia, and on an average of years, one
of the most remunerative. There are 43
canneries in operation in the province, of
which 26 are Bituated on the Fraser river,
eight on the Skeena, three on the Naas,
three at Rivers Inlet, and one each at Lowe
Inlet, Alert Bay and Nanoose Bay. The
catch for the year 1893 shows a considerable
increase over that for previous years. Complete statistics have not yet been compiled,
but it is estimated that the total pack for
the year amounts to 27,676,000 tins of one
pound each, or 576,584 cases. Of thia
quantity 22,600,000 lbs. came from the
Fraser. Thia shows an increase of nearly 60
per cent, over last year. In the north the
catch will fall nearly 1,001) 000 lbs. under that
of 1892. It is to be lemembered, however,
that the catch of 1892 in the northern
waters was unusually heavy. The British
Columbia salmon fleet, consisting of ten
vessels, disposed of over 400,000 cases of the
season's catch. The remainder was sent
overland to supply the eastern markets, and
for Bhipmeul lo the mother country. The
canned salmon are shipped mainly to Liverpool and London, but besides the British
market, we have a considerable market for
the product of our canneries in the eastern
provinces and iu Australia. This latter
market is only beginning to be developed,
but great hopes are entertained of it. An
expert gives it as his opinion, in which he
expresses considerable confidence, that in
1894 the run will be fairly good, but not so
large as it was in 1893; that 1895 will be a
good year, and 1896 a poor one. The opinion of this gentleman, who is an inspector
of fisheries, is based on close observation
extended over several yeara. On the whole
the results for the p*st year have been good,
and the outlook for the near future is encouraging.
An American contemporary says: "The
Matabels will pay dearly for it if they have
destroyed the small furce of forty men under
Captain Wilaon. For eveiy man cut off the
English will exact a hundred or more, and tbe
Bpirit in which they will go into the battle
will be something like thit of our Seventh
Cavalry when they came in contact with
the Sioux who massacred Custer's little
force."
THBRB ark bigns on every hand of rapid
progress in British Columbia. One of the
most satisfactory is the large number of
companies that have been incorporated
during the year just closed for carrying ou
industrial and commercial undertakings of
various kinds in thiB province. During 1893
no less than 85 certificates of incorporation
were issued. The amount of capital Btock
of the various companies incorporated, ranging from a few thousand dollars to a million,
aggregated in round numbers ��57,540,000.
The spending of thin vast sum, or even of a
tenth of it, cannot but give a great impetus
to the industries and commerce of i he province, and help largely to create employment for our working men. The number
of benevolent and friendly societies incorporated iu the province during the past
year was twelve. It may be fairly claimed
that no provinoe of Canada, or indeed of
the British empire at large, has been more
prosperous during the past yiar than British
Columbia, or has a better outlook for the
immediate future.
it gains for itself a high reputation for its
excellence. It is believed that the trade
with Australia in this staple will greatly increase at an early date, when the grievous
commercial depression which for some time
past has prevailed in that country has had
time to pass away. If the Wilson tariff
becomes law, and lumber is placed on the
free list, a large trade may also be confidently expected to be done with the United
States. It hence appears that 1894 will
probably be a brisker year for British Columbia lumber men than 1893 has been.
The lumiier trade of British Columbia
during the pait year has not been bo active
as could be desired. The local demand has
been dull and comparatively small, nevertheless there has been a considerable trade
in lumber done by sea. Thia over aea trade
has in many cases served to keep mills going
that without it would have had to cloBe
down, throwing men out of work and leaving capital unproductive and machinery and
buildings deteriorating. The proprietors
In most cases had to content themselves
with a low rate of profit, but considered a
low rate preferable to none. The countries
to which British Columbia lumber was
chiefly aent over sea duriog the past year
were the United Kingdom, Australia, South
America, China, Japan, South Africa and
Holland and Belgium. Some too, found a
market in Eastern Canada. It is thus seen
that not withstanding our remote situation,
British Columbia lumber is sent over most
of the oivilized world, and  wherever it goes
The MINERS of Northlield are to be congratulated on the very sensible conclusion at
which the majority arrived in the vote taken
by Becret ballot on the question whether the
miners would accept or reject the company's
terms. The company's terms were accepted
by a majority of 109 to 46, or by over two
to one. The alternative was the closing
down of the mine. The company proved to
a special committee of the miners, to whom
they opened their books, that at the old
rate of wages the mine �� as bein^ operated
at a Iobb. As the majority of the miners
had the good sense to Bee, this could not go
on indefinitely. They therefore voted to
accept the reduced rate of wages offered by
the company, and the working of the mine
will consequently be continued. This is certainly far better for the miners and their
families than the closing of the works would
have been. There are already too many
idle men around, nearly everywhere, aud
the Northfield men did well not to increase
the number of such at present. The reduced
wages offered and work will certainly be
better both for the men and their families
than no wages and idleness. We again congratulate the men on the wisdom aod moderation they have shown, and the manage-
ment of the mine on taking the men into
their confidence and treating them like
reasonable and responsible persons. If
similar spirit were Bhown in all cases and a
similar method adopted, there would, we
think, be fewer ruinous strikes.

THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL.
Tbe Carmanah Point Drowning Accident.
Stroebel Makes a Further Confession.
Victoria, Jan. 3.���[Special]���The late
Norman Friend, th6 victim of the cruel
waters at the entrance to the straits, on
Sunday, was an athletic young resident of
Victoria who came here not so very long ago
from hiB mother-country, England. He had
been, duce his arrival in this province, a
conspicuous figure on the football field and
the cricket oval, and also won numerous
races on the path, sprinting being his special
forte. So confident was he in his strength
that it is the fear of his friends that he may
have carried daring to the verge of recklessness, and so lust his life. Having
spent the summer in the north with
the Alaska boundary commission party,
he had been doing considerable work
with various surveyors iu the field, and
aome little time ago wont out with a party
to San Juan. This was his headquarters,
and his nearest neighbor in communication
with the civilized world was Mr. Daykin,
the Carmanah Point operator. Knowing
how weary is a holiday in camp, Mr. Day-
kin invited Friend and a companion named
Joseph Williams to spend Now Year's day
with him at Carmanah. It was when they
were on their way thither that the fatal
accident occurred. The scene of the tragedy
waB Nine-mile river, a particularly danger-
oub point carefully avoided by thu Indians,
and the circumstances aie thus narrated by
Mr. Williams in Mr. Daykin's lighthouse
logbook:
"JoBeph Williams and Norman Friend,
having been invited to Bpend New Year
with Mr. Daykin, at Carmanah, left San
Juan at 8 a. m. to-day (Suuday) for there,
and on arriving at the river known as Nine-
Mile river, we left the trail and started to
come the rest of the way by the beach. ��t'e
had come half a mile when we met with a
very dangerous crossing. It Ih a gulch
under a waterfall and about 15 feet wide,
with two stones in lino to cross on, but the
sea being rather rough I wanted him to turn
back and come by the trail. But he, thinking it could be crossed without accident, said: 'I will try it at any
rate; it is not far,' yet I snid we
had belter not attempt it. I had hardly
spoken when he jumped on to the first
stone. I followed, but seeing a heavy sea
coming, I said, 'We had better jump back.'
He said, 'I will go ahead,' and he jumped at
the same time. I jumped back, missed the
rock with my feit but caught it with my
right arm and swinging myiclf up to the
bank, \�� hen I looked back I taw the poor
fellow in the mills;, of the boiling siiif about
twenty feet from me. I yelled to him
to swim towards me, stripped off my
shirts and belt; tied them together to throw
to him, but just then the sea swept him by
me. I grasped him by the shoulder with
my left hand and held on to the stone with
the other. But the left hand being rather
weak and he being apparently stunned, I
lost my hold and was nearly washed away
myself. That is the last I ever saw of him.
I arrived at Carmanah at 4 p. m. Sunday,
December 31.
(Signed) J. VV. Williams.
Witness,
W. P.  Daykin."
The late Norman Friend was a native of
Budleigh Salterton, Devonshire, and about
24 or 25 years of age; his fathor, a retired
barrister, is one of the moBt respected residents of the country. On his first arrival
here tho deceased young man worked for a
time for Robert Ward & Co., Ltd., in their
offices, subsequently engaging iu survey
work as before mentioned. He was to have
inherited a considerable fortune ou reaching
hiB 25th year, and waB already making preparations to return to England for the purpose of entering upon his possessions. The
immediate cause of hiB coming to Canada
is Baid to have been the death in England of
the young lady to whom he waB engaged in
marriage.
Stroebel haB made still another statement
as to how he killed John Marshall. The
narrative iB about the same as that already
recorded up to the alleged quarrel; Stroebel
now says, however, that the second shot
wus accidental. This story like the rest is
improbable in all but the main fact���that he
did the shooting. He has decided now not
to put in writing the confession which he
intended to make in court after he had heen
sentenced to death, or to make any formal
confession uuless advised to do so by hiB
liwyer.
Mr. Russ Humber, son of ex-Aldermau
Humber of this city is the hero of a novel
gold story which is illustrated with several
small nuggets at pre-ent on exhibition at
Frank Campbell's cigar store. The tale is a
revised version of the goose and the golden
egg, only this particular goose was a pair of
ducks, and it was not until the housekeeper
was performing the post mortem that they
were made to yield dividends and the dis
covery was thereby made that they had
been subsisting on uncommonly rich diet.
Mr. Humber determined some time ago that
he would have duck for his New Year's
dinner. He accordingly rounded up several
of his own choice flock and they were
promptly guillotined. When they were
being prepared for the oven the gizzards
were found to contain numerous
samples of coarse gold, the samples which
have been placed in evidence. The ducks
had always been of a home-loving disposition and so search was at once instituted on
the premises for the bank upon which their
checks had been drawn. In this work an
expert prospector lent hiB aid. The most
likely ground discovered was where a drain
had recently been laid at a depth of six feet
and here further investigations are to be
made at once. Up to date the remaining
ducks have either been staked off or employed as prospectors.
TAKEN FOR CHICKEN THIEVES.
Mr. and Mrs. Croft Fired on���A Plucky
Trapeze Artiste.
Victoria, Jan. 3.���[Special.] John Walker of Victoria West will appear in the
police court on Friday to explain hie peculiar
actions on New Year's evening, whioh
almost resulted in the wounding of Mr. or
Mrs. Henry Croft. The two latter were
proceeding home from a party, when
Walker opened his window and fired with a
rifle, aB they state, directly toward them,
while his brother trained an improvised
searchlight on them from a lower window.
Walker says he believed they were chicken
thieves and tired in the air to frighten
them. Mr. Croft represents Cowichan in
the local legislature, Mrs. Croft being a
daughter of the late Hon. Robert Dunsmuir.
They rather relish the joke of beiug taken
for chicken thieves, but think it was currying tho joke too far to open fire with a Winchester.
George L. Brown, alias Campbell, is to be
tried here for writing threatening letters to
Dr. Hunington.
"Renetta," a trapeze artist now doing an
engagement at the Delmonico Music Hall
here, narrowly escaped death last evening
by the breaking of the bar on which
she waa performing. She shot head
downward, striking the floor with her neck
and shoulder, and lay unconscious for a
Oouple of minutes. Then she staggered to
her feet, asserting with a smile that she
was not hurt a bit and concluded her act
amidst applause. Afterward she went to
her room, where she has been since confined, thi doctor pronouncing her internal
injuries sever-". Off the *-ti*ge Renetta is

Trouble Ahead of the Syndloate.
Montreal, Que., Jan. 3 ���There is every
evidence of trouble brew ing for the new
Whitney syndicate which has secured control of the principal coal mines
of Nova Scotia and Cape Breton.
Emissaries from the discontented section of Nova Scotia have been in Montreal testing the feeling here und endeavoring to work up an agit it uu against the
syndicate. Tho idea is when Parliament
meets to bring ina reso'uiion questioning the
right of the Legislature of Nova Sootia to
turn over the mines to the Whitney Syndicate. The Montreal members have been
asked to support such a resolution and the
majority of the members from New Brunswick aud Nova Scotia are snid to be pledged
to it.

To Secure tho Foundations.
Mining operations on a small scale are
about to be carried on at the back of the
new tire hall, where a subsidence of the
ground haB lately taken place. Iron raiU
for a track and timber for sleepers, propB,
and a truck to be used, have already beeu
placed at the apot where work will be commenced. The Bubsidence is over both an
adit belonging to the old Douglas mine, and
workings that were carried ou in very early
days before the DousdaB mine was in operation. The intention now ia to timber the
adit level, also the old workings in close
connection with it, and all parts that are in
any way liable to affect the foundations of
thefirehall. Ex-Alderman Baker and Alderman Ganner worked iu the old days in
the diggings referred to. For the last sixteen yeara attempts have been made to fil
up the subsidence with trees, biuah aud
other material, and it is expected that there
will be a certain amount of difficulty attached to the operation about to be gone
through.

IB FOUR PLOTTERS.
JSJSj #��ronw* K. Jerotno.
you wouldn't Have lisen ill if y'od hadn't
eaten any!   You're queer onoiisflx now,
any nnn e;tn uee, and I'm rwv sorry for
you*, bin. for all that you cnu  tell if you
hadn't eaten any o;   luii .-.��� "i you might!
have been very mil *ii  worse���perhaps j
dead.    In all probability  it has paved1
your life."   And for I lie rest of the day I
he assumes towards yon the attitude of
a man who haa dragged you from the
grave.
The moment Jimmy arrived I seized
hold of him.
"Jimmy," I Baid,  "you must rush off
to the chemist's  Immediately.    Don't
���top for anything.   Tell him to give yquj
lomething for colic���the result of vegetable poisoning.    It must be somerhing
very strong and enough for four. Don't,
forget, something to counteract the of-!
fecfs of ve^etaWe poisoning.   Hurry up,
or it may be too lute."
My excitement communicated itself j
to the boy.   He tumbled buck into his
punt   and   pushed   off   vigorously.      I
watched i**ini Ian 1 and disappear in the
direction of the village,
Half an hour passed, but Jimmy did
not reappear.   No one felt sufficiently
energetic to go after him.      Wt*   had
only just strength enough to sit still and:
feebly abuse him.     At the end of an'
hour we were all feeling very much
better.     At   the   end   of    an    hour
and   a   half   we   were   glad he   had
not returned when he ougiit to have, ���
and were only curious as to what had become of tiim.
In the evening, strolling through
the village, we saw him sitting by
the open door of his mother's cottage
with a shawl wrapped round him. He
was looking worn and ill.
"Why, Jimmy," I said, "what's the
matter? Why didn't you come back
this morning?"
"I couldn't sir, "Jimmy answered *W
was so queer. Mother made me go to
bed."
"You seemed all right in the morning," I said.    "What made you queerf"
"What Mr. Jones give me, sir; it np��
wt me awful."
A light broke in upon me.
"What did you say, Jimmy, when
jrou got to Mr. Jones' shop?" I asked.
"I told 'im what you said, sir, that "e
was to give me something to counteract
the effects of vegetable poisoning. And
that it was to be very strong and enough
for four."
"And what did ho say?"
" 'E Baid that was only your nonsense,
���ir. and that I'd better have enough for
one to begin witli; and then he asked me
if I'd been eating green apples again."    j
"And you told him?" I
"Yees.sir, I told 'im I'd 'adafew, and "���
���aid it served me right, and that "e
'oped it would be a warning to ma. i
And then 'e put something fixxy to a
glass and told me to drink it"
"And you drank it?"
"Yees, sir."
"It never occurred to you, Jimmy,
that there was nothing the mutter with
you���that you were never feeling better,
in your life, and that you did not require any medicine?" j
"No, sir."
"Did one single scintilla of thought
of any kind occur to you in connection
with "the matter, Jimmy, from beginning
to end?"
"No, sir." 7~"*
People who never met Jimmy disbelieve this story. They argue that its
premises are in discord with the known
laws governing human nituve. that its
details do not square with the average of
probability. People who have seen and
conversed with Jimmy accept it with
simple faith.
There are many other anecdotes concerning Jimmy that I could relate, but
the fear lest they might not be believed
debars me.
The advent of Jephson���which I trust
the reader has not entirely forgotten. It
was, he may remember, t&is episode that
started me talking a.ioul .1 iitmiy���cheered us up considerably. Jenasoi was always (it his best, w'jon other things were
at their worst. It was not that he struggled in Mark Taploy fashion tu appear
most cheerful when must depruasad; it
was that potty misfortunes am .nishttps
genuinely amused and inspired him.
Most of ns can recall our unpie intuit experiences with amused affeutio 1; Jeptl-
boh possessed the robuster philosophy
that enabled him to enjoy his during
their actual progress. He arrived
drenched to the skin, chuckling hugely
at the idea of .having come down on a
visit tu a houseboat in such weather.
Under his warming influence the hard
lines ou our i'nces thawed, and by supper time we were, as all English men
and women who wish toenjov lifo should
be, independent of tiie wealher.
Later on. as if disheartened by our indifference, the rain ceased, and we took
our chairs out on the deck, mid sat
watching the lightning, which still played incessantly. Then, not unnaturally,
the talk drifted into a somber channel,
and we began recounting Btoi'ies, dealing with the gloomy and mysterious
side of life.
Some of these were worth remembering, and some wero not. The one that
left the strongest impression on ray mind
was a tale that Jephson told us.
I had just been relating a somewhat
curious experience of my own. I mot a
man in the Strand one day that I knew
very well, as I thougat. though I had
not seen him for years. We walked
together to Charing Cross, and there we
���hook bands and parted. Next morning
I spoke of this meeting to a mutual
friend, and then I*learned for thu first
time t hat the man had died hi v months
before.
The natural inference was that I had
mistaken one man for another, an error
that, not having a good memory for
faces, I frequently fall into. What was
remarkable about the matter, however,
was that throughout our walk 1 had
conversed witli tho man under the impression that he was that Other dead
man. and, whether by coincidence, his
replies had never once suggested to me
my mistake.
As soon as I finished Bpeaking Jephson, who had been listening very
thought fully, asked me if I believed in
spiritualism "to its fullest extent."
"That ib rather a large question," I
answered. "What do you mean by
���spiritualism to lis fullest extent'?"
"Well, do you believe that the spirits
of the dead have not only the power of
revisiting this earth at their will, but
that, when here, they have the power of
action, or rather of exciting to action. Let
me put a definite case. A spiritualist
friend of mine, a sensibleand by no means
imaginative man, onee told in**! hat a table
throng*' f|ie :.. i'mn of w.ii.: i tue spirit
of a fri "id had be**n in the h.tiiit of com-
munii-1 ii.: with him cam* niowly across
the roo i .towards bim. of its own accord, one night as he sat alone, and pinioned him against the wall. Now can
auy of yo.t beiievq that, or can't you?"
"I could," Brown w,A it upon himself
to reply; "but. before doing bo, I should
wish for au introduction to the friend
who told you the story. Speaking generally." he continued, "it seems to me
that the difference between what, we call
the natural and the supernatural is
merely the difference between frequency
and rarity of occurrence. Having regard to the phenomena we are compelled
to admit, I think, it illogical to disbelieve
anything that we are not able to disprove."
"For my part," remarked MacShaug-
nassy, "I can believe in the ability of
our spirit friends to give the quaint entertainments credited to them much
easier than I can in their desire to do so."
"Von mean," added Jephson, "that
you cannot understand why a spirit not
compelled as we are by the exigencies
of society should care t*i spend its evenings carrying on a labored and childish
conversation with a room full of abnormally uninteresting people?"
"That is precisely what I cannot
understand." MacSiiaugnassy agreed.
"Nor I either," said Jephson. "But
I was thinking of something very different altogether. Suppose a man died
with the dearest wish of his heart unfulfilled, do you believe that his spirit
might have power to return to earth
and complete the interrupted work?"
"Well,"answered MacShaugnagsy, "if
one admits the possibility of spirits retaining any interest in the affairs of
this world at all, it is certainly more
reasonable to imagine them engaged
upon such a task as you suggest than to
believe that they occupy themselves
with the performance of mere drawing-
room tricks. But what are you leading
up to?"
"Why to this," replied Jephson, seating himself across his chair and leaning
his arms upon the back, "I was told a
story this morning at the hospital by an
old French doctor.. The actual facts
are few and simple: all that is known
oan be read in the Paris police records
of forty-two years ago.
"The most important part of the oaae,
however, is the part that is not known,
and that will never be known.
"The story begins with a great wrong
done by one man unto another man.
What the wrong was I do not know. I
am inclined to think, however, that it
was connected with a woman. I think
that because he who had been wronged
hated him who had wronged with a hate
such as does not often barn in a man'��
brain unless it be fanned by the memory
of a woman's breath.
"Still that i6 only conjecture, and the
point is immaterial. The man who had
done the wrong fled and the other man
followed hiin. It became a point to
point race, the first man having the advantage of a day's start. The course
was the whole world and the stakes were
the first man's life.
"Travelers were few and far between
in these days, and this made the trail
easy to follow. The first man, never
knowing how far or how near the other
was behind 1pm, and hoping now and
again that he might have baffled him,
would rest for a while. The second man,
knowing always just how far the first
one wns before him, never paused, and
thus each day the man who was spurred
by hate drew nearer to the man who
was spurred by fear.
"At this town the answer to the never-
varied question would be:
" 'At T o'clock last evening, M'sienr.'
"'Seven���ah; 18 hours. Give me
something to eat, quick, while the
horses are being put to.'
"At the next the calculation would be
16 hours.
"Passing a lonely chalet, Monsieur
puts his head out of the window:
" 'How long since a carriage passed
this way, with a tall, fair man inside?'
" 'Such a one passed early this morning, M'sieur.'
" 'Thanks, drive on, a hundred francs
apiece if you are through the pass before
daybreak.'
" 'And what for dead horses, M'steurf
" 'Twice their value when living.'
"One day the man who was ridden by
fear looked up ann saw before hi.n the
opeu door of a cathedral, and passing in
knelt down and prayed. He prayed
long and fervently, for mon. wiioa they
are in sore straits, clutch eagerly at ihe
straws of f lit it. He prayed that li*�� nignt
be forgiven his sin, and, inoreit.-i.* ulant
still, that he might be pardoned the con-
sequences of his sin, and be delivered
from his adversary; and a few chairs
from him. facing him, knelt his enemy,
praying also.
"But the second man's prayer, beinga
thanksgiving merely, was short, so that
wheu the first man raised his eyes he
���saw the face of his enemy gazing at him
across the chair tops, witli a mocking
Biuile npon it.
"He made no attempt to rise, but remained kneeling, fascinated by the look
of joy that shone out of the other man's
eyes. And the other man moved the
high-backed chairs one by one and came
towards him softly.
"Then, just as the man who had been
wronged stood beside the man who had
wronged him, full of gla luess that his
opportunity had come, th *���" burst from
the cathedral tower a sn.ideu clash of
bells, and the man whoso opportunity
had come broke his heart and fell back
dead, with that mocking smile of his
still playing round his mouth,
"And go he lay there.
"Then the man who had done the
wrong rose up and passed oat praising
God.
"What became of the body of the
other man is not known. It was the
body of a Btranger who had died suddenly in the cathedral. There was none to
identify it, none to claim it.
"Years passed away and the suryivor
in the tragedy became a worthy and use- i
ful ciiizin .in*', ft noted man of science,
"In his laboratory were ma iv '*bjects

DID YOU REMEMBER
ALL YOUR FRIENDS ON IXIMAS
If there's someone you forgot why not make it good now, by sending them a New Year's Gift.  No matter how small
the article, it is appreciated at this season, and keeps alive memories of Auld Lang Syne.
We have still a number of suitable presents, any of which we will now dispose of at about half price.
Don't forget that we  carry an enormous range of "Bretagne" Lacing Gloves in all colors.   They are acknowledged
to be the best Wearing Glove in the market, and the price is very reasonable.
