LONDON, Deo. 28.���Trie financial editor of
I the Westminster Gazette says this   afternoon
in an article rm the affairs of the   Atchinson
railway   system:      "Although     we     fully
recogoize that Mr. Reinhart, as president of
j the railway company, standing in a precari-
I ous position, may find   it   uecessary   to   be
I very reticent iu dealing   with an   interview
i ou the position of that company, yet we feel
that a man making such  misstatements as
j appear in tho official report   of the  position
: of the company, is not entitled to   the  oon-
1 fidence of lhe shareholders.     We have wel-
, come trforrnittiou   lr' s'eps arc to be t'lken
to-day to form a L.iiiiuU committee to pio
tect tlie interest   of the  bondholders.   'The
names of those u delinking   fho   tas-k   will
represent the largest   English   interests   in
Atchison."
It is understood that before proroguing
Parliament the Government will ask the
House of Commons to approve a new standing order which will enable any government
to take up at the beginning of a session the
unlini.-h u lm loess on a bill exactly at the
point where it was left by prorogation of
the preceding session. In case this order be
adopted it will be first applied probably to
the Parish Councils Bill.
The   Scottish   Liberal   Association    has
adopted an address to Mr. Gladstone heartily endorsing his policy aud  declaring  their
i belief that the   House of Lords   ultimately
! will be  compelled to yield  to  the people's
willing regard to Home Rule for Ireland.
j     The Hamburg correspondent of  the  Cen-
i tral News says:      Priuce Bismarck has been
! confined lo his bed by a cold since December
! 26th.   He caught the cold on Christmas day,
i when he exposed himself to lhe moist air of
' the park, despite his   physcian's  warnings.
He is said now to be  making  fair  progress
towards recovery.      Dr. Sohwenger is satisfied that he will he quite wel! in a f' " days.
A despatch from Paris to   the   St.   James
Gazette, says that the wine growers in Southern France  are so   overglutted   with   their
produce thai they offer wiue   at one   penny
per quart, but fail to obtain that price.  The
splendid vintage has mado   wiue a  drug   iu
the matket.    New casks cost more than the
wine needed   to   fill   them.    The  despatch
adds that; three   thousand   winegrowers  in
the Moutpellier district are preparing a protest against merchants supplying   Ihe  wine
shops of   Paris   with   manufactured   wines
wheu the genuine article   is   so   cheap.    A
great meeting of the growers is about  to be
held at Ximes for   the   purpose   of   calling
attention to the scandal of  selling counterfeit wines.

A Big Gun Duel at Nictheroy
cnt Troops Defeated.
Philadelphia, Dao. 2"i.���The schooner
Grace Andrews, Capt. John Andrews, of
Thomston, Me., arrived here today from
Brazil. Capt. Andrews has a grievance
against Peixoto's government for which he
proposes to try aud collect damages through
the Slate Department. For six months past,
Capt. Andrews has been cruising along the
Brazilian coast trying to pick up a cargo. In
November he anchored his schooner a short
distance below Rio Janeiro and started in a
small boat with three men for the Brazilian
capital, where he proposed to pay a visit to
his brother, who is a merchant there. Aa
Captain Andrews sailed into the bay of Rio
oue of Peixoto's patrol boats oame
alongside, and without, auy parley
the officer in comniaud informed
Capt. Andrews that he and his men were
prisoners. There was a small American flag
flouting in the bow of the boat and this the
Brazilians tore down and ordered C-*ptain
Andicws'men to d'rect their boat towards
shore. As resistance would have been useless, the AmotioiiU8 diil as they were or-
derul, and when they got ashore they were
marched lo the castle of Santa Cmz and imprisoned in dungeons. Captain Andrews
says the cells they were put in were horrible places���d imp ami cold and overrun with
told an American employed as stevedore to
get back to land, I hey did uot want Americans around there, aud that they had better
look out, aud similar threats. The grounded
warship was burned on December 18th, he
ing set ou fire by a shell from the goveru
ment battery at Gragoata.
Philadelphia, Dec is.���Major Julius
R'odes, of Elmira, N. V., who is enlisting
men for Piexoto's army, his an agent in this
city enroling recruits. The agent is Harry
Tatohell, formerly a sergeant iu the British
army and he claims to have secured a number of men who want lo tight, for the Brazilian government. Tatohell says he intends
to enlist about thirty-five men here, or
rather take them to Brazil where the actual
oath of enlistment will b6 administered.
They are to receive )50 a month and rations
ami are not. to expect h pension in case of
injury, When the company is formed it
will he known as "Rhode' Independent
Shooters." Ouiy sober meu who have beeu
in service are beiug taken. Rhodes was
formerly in the United States army, but
latteily has been a pension attorney at
Washington.
BtJBNOS Avres, Dec. 28.���The latest reports from Rio Janeiro are to the effect
that the city is beiug violently bombarded.
A number of persons hive been killed by
shots from the insurgent vessels. A heavy
fire is returned from the government forts.
AU the shops are closed.
Politics in Paris.
Paris, Deo. 21.���In political circles the
elect ion of a president of the republic to
succeed president Oaruot has become the
leading question of the hour. The election
is still at least ten mouths away, as the
latest time at which the National Assembly
can meet to decide the question is November
1891. President Caruot's term expires on
January 1st, 1895, he having taken the
offloe on January 1st, 1888. In France the
president is not elected as in the United
States, but by au absolute majority of the
National Assembly, which is composed of
tho Senate and Chamber of Deputies meeting as one body. The Rap'l/ii is endeavoring to estimate what chances Prosideut Car-
nol has for re-election, The paper calculates that out of the three hundred senators
now composing the Senate two thirds can
be relied upon to support the candidacy of
President Carnot. The estimate is, however, wanting in accuracy in that it is beyond the realm of possibility that the entire
elective Senate as at present constituted
will be returned at the coming senatorial
eleetious. The electoral colleges which are
to select senators for re-election will be
obliged under the constitution to return 1811
men, of whom 157 will certainly he doubtful
in their attitude toward Carnot. His best
opportunity of re-election will be found iu
the disgrace or obscurity to which his opponents have been brought iu rapid succession. Ribot, Floqiiet, Constant and Frey-
cinet are uo longer in his way. Those
whom he has not out-worked he has outlived. He has elevated himself through the
demoralization of ministries whose dissolutions have almost invariably resulted in
shalleriug the highest hopes of their members, yet iu none of these political crises has
the president compromised himself. Many
persons begin to think bim too clever and
secretive to be trusted again with his high
office, but few of those opposing his re-election to the presideucy of the Republic have
an answer to the question: "Who else
among tho survivors of the Panama scandal
is available for his place?''
Vogt, Rossette and Thibault, three anarchists arrested to-day for collecting money
to be used in spreading the propaganda, are
habitual thieves. It is hut another bit of
evidence thit professional criminals who acknowledge and glory iu their ciiines when
they are free, parade their belief in anarchism the moment they are arrested as an excuse for their disgraoe. A peculiaiity of
many anBrohistic and �������� ialiat suspects now
under arrest is tin- rapid spread of insanity
among 1 hem the moment they are locked up.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1893.
THE   NORTHFIELD    WAGE   QUES]
TION.
We sincerely trust that an nmieable arrangement will be reached on the question
of a reduoiion of wages which has arisen between the New Vancouver Coal Company
and their Northfield employees. We do not
counsel the men to accept the reduction,
neither do we ask them to try to force the
company to continue to operate their mines
at a loss. But it seems that one course or the
other is now inevitable. It is acknowledged
by the miners themselves that the North-
field miiies have not paid, still tbe company
has kept them open in order to furnish employment for the people who have settled
there.
One significant faot was brought out by
both Mr. Keith aud Mr, Boyce at yesterday's meeting and that is that a higher rate
of wages is now being paid by the New
Vancouver Coal Company than is paid by
other local companies with whom they come
iu competition. Yet tlie employees of^these
companies seem to bep nfeotly satisfied with
their condition.
The present is aa exceedingly Hying time
indeed. There are thousands of idle men in
almost every walk of life and at almost every
point across the line aud in the old
countries. While we may consider times
pretty hard ia Nanaimo our people are far
better off to-day than in almost, any other
place we know of on this continent. Therefore the great question for the men of Noith-
field to consider is, cau they better themselves and the conditiou of their families if
they decide to quit work? They have been
told plainly by their Nanaimo brethren that
they need not look for assistance from
here; then are they in a position to provide
for their families, if the mines should close
down, until they can get work elsewhere?
Half a loaf is better than no loaf at all and
we would ask the miners to act accordingly
in the matter. There is so much misery
and suffering in tbe great business centres
of thi-! continent to-day through lack of employment for working men that one may
well view with alarm auy possible contingency that might add to this conditiou of
affairs.
NA NA IMO'S CO A L MINES.
Iu a paragraph iu Tuesday's issue we discredited a statement appearing recently in
the Calgary Herald regarding the extent of
the underground workings of the New
Vancouver Coal Co's. No. 1 or Esplanade
shaft. We acknowledged that it is hy far
the most extensive coal mine on the Pacific
coast either in Canada or the United States
of America, but we were not ourselves aware
of the many miles of railway, air courses
and galleries that have beeu excavated
under Nanaimo harbour and the Oulf of
Georgia. A traveller or even a resident of
Nanaimo, cannot without an effort realize
that under the placid bhect of water surrounding our pretty town there is au under-
' ground city even more lively than the city
above ground.
We have beon favoured by the New V. 0.
Co's. ollioials with the following figures
which will be of interest to our reader, here
and elsewhere.
There are at preient 4.)i miles of galleries
in the No. 1 shaft und the connections with
the Protection Island shaft. Of these 45
miles there aro thirteen miles laid down
with steel rails for bringing the coal to the
shaft bottom. Every minute one hundred
and twenty thousand cubic feet of air is
circulated through the underground workings so that iu 24 hour, this would amount
to a volume of air that would fill a tunnel
10 feet square and 300 mileB in length.
THE MATABELE WAS.
The news from South Africa ia of a somewhat alarming character. It ia reported
that Captain Wilaon and about 40 men who
Wad been detached in pursuit of Lobengula
have been out off.and the whole foroe killed.
It appears that after Lobengula's defeat at
Buluwayo he fled north to and across the
Shangani river. Captain Wilson with 40
men left tbe main column of the Britiah and
cros8ed the Shangani in pursuit. Shortly
after Wilaon oroased, the river began to
rise, and hia retreat waB cut off. Various
contradictory reports were received, aome
that Wilaon had defeated the Matabeles,
others that he had been defeated by them,
and that he and hia men bad all been killed.
The advices now received indicate that this
last report is true, and that instead of de
feating the Matabeles, Wilson's force has
been dtf<ated by them, and annihilated.
This calamity, if it should be confirmed by
later news, will be deeply regretted; but it
will uot in reality change the result of the
campaign, Lobengula has beeu beaten and
compelled to Hy, aud bis victory over Wilson, if he has in reality defeated the latter
and slain him and the haudful of men under
his command, will uot alter that
fact, or restore to the Matabelea their
lost power aud prestige, though it may defer for a time Lobecgula's final overthrow.
The British have been acting with too much
rashness���have in fact been guilty of the
folly of despising their foes. They must
now proceed with greater caution iu dealing
with the Matabeles, who have proved themselves foes uot to be despised.

Before Mr. Justice Crease on Wednesday
Attorney General Davie moved for an injunction against Hughitt k Mclntyro and
their assignees, to restrain further Hotting
of logs down the Cowichan river until the
preseut accumulation of logs were removed.
He moved for a mandatory injunction requiring the dateudants to remove all the lugs
which have accumulated, to float them out
and keep them moving, their accumulation
having had the result of carrying away
quantitk'8 of the embankment. The injunction was granted this morning. It thus
forbids bringing more logs down the river
from Cowichan Lake until accumulations
are removed, aud requires defendants to
forthwith remove the log blockado under
direction of Ashdown Green, who is appointed superintendent for that purp ;se.

MINERS IN CONCLAVE.
To Discuss tbe  Proposed Reduction in
Northfield Miners' Wages.
A meeting of Nauaimo and Northfield
miners took place yesterday afternoon at
four o'clock, in the Opera House.
Mr. Neil McCuish beiog elected chairman, Mr, Arthur Wilson, president of the
Miners and Mining Labor Jfrotective Association, explained the object of the meeting,
to consider the proposed reduction in the
wages of the Northfield employees of the
New Vancouver Coal Company. The
correspondence passing between the manager
of the company, and the miners' executive
committee regarding the matter, aud stating the reductions propoaed to be made,
was then read to the meeting. Mr. Wilson
stated ihat the different committees had
conferred with Mr. Rubins several times,
but the final announcement was that the
reduction of wuges must either be accepted
or the mine be closed.
Mr. J. Horrobiu, a member of the North-
field Mines' Committee, set forth to the
meeting the rates of pay and the proposed
changes. It was a matter, he said, which
concerned the whole district, and it was not
for settlement by the Northfield miners
alone, especially regarding the reduction of
the wages of day hands, which would make
their pay less than that reoeived by the
same class of workers in Nauaimo.
Oi her speeches Wero lliiidfi much in the
same strain. It Was expressed by one that
the Nauaimo employees must sink or swim
with Northfield If the Northfield mines
���are shut down, lhe men must be guaranteed
employment in the Nanaimo mines in preference to others, should extra labor there
be wanted. The meeting should adjourn
and allow the committee to again wait upon
Mr. Robins, whose position, the speaker
laid, was unreasonable.
Another Northfield committee man who
spoke believed that the New Vancouver
Coal Company were endeavoring to get
wages reduced so that they could secure
cheap labor.
There was no question of a shut down, another speaker said. The company did not
intend to close up the mine, but were simply
attempting to force a reduction of wages.
The question should be submitted to the
vote of men working in both mines. If the
offer made by the company was rejected,
and the mines closed down, he believed the
Northfield men would hold out as long as
those in Nanaimo.
The question was too grave to be hurriedly settled, said another speaker. The North-
field men could nut acoept the reduced
rates, in fact could not work for them. The
Nauaimo miners could not honestly vote for
their acceptance of the reduction, yet could
not throw up work to support them. Th
question they ha^ to settle waB an attempt
to introduce cheap labor. The exclusion of
the Chineae was also another problem they
had to face, and these things could
lightly handled.    The Government
very evident that unless the reduction was
accepted Northfield would be shut down
aud he favored the small reduction to all
lhe mineri so that the Northfield meu could
continue work. He thought that au organization should be formed lo deal thoroughly
with the wages question and to keep up the
standard. The reduction asked is 20 per
cent, under prices previous to August 1,
1893.
Another speaker remarked that Mr. Robins had said that he could supply the North-
field market if il shut down, from Protection Island and No. 1 shafts���why not let
the miners from Northfisld come here and
supply it.
It was then moved that a committee be
appointed to receive instructions aud to visit
Mr. Rubins. * Mr. T. Boyce believed that
the original committee appointed were perfectly competent to act. The motion was
carried, the original committee beiug appointed, which includes Ar I.in Williams,
president of the Miners and Mining Labor
Protective Association, N. McCuish, Dawson, Hon iilnn, Lai go and Flynn.
A' miner spoke giving it as his opinion
that the matter ought really to be settled
by arbitration.
Mr. Keith spoke to some length on this
subject hoping that before long disputes
would have   to   be   settled by arbitration.
Mr. Wilson said that as a member of the
committee he would not go to Mr. Robins
unless the suggestions offered were resolutions and uot casual suggestions made at
different limes during the meeting. Mr.
Boyce moved that the meeting be adjourned
till '^ituiuay *'* 10 ft.m, when there ought
to be more present and tne suggestions
could be put iu the way of resolutions and
then referred through the committee to Mr.
Robins if passed. And as practically nothing had been done at this meeting, that the
question should be settled on Saturday at
another meeting in the Opera House. Carried.
not be
waB   to
blame for their want of attention to the last
matter.
It was urged for a second time that the
delegates be sent back to Mr. Robins to 88
certain if a vote on the present scale was
necessary. The Nanaimo miners would
probably join with those of Northfield in
asking for a more liberal proposition.
In the discussion following this, a reduc
tion of two or three per cent, in the wages
of the miners of the whole distriot, in order
to aid the Northfield men, was proposed
The speaker who advocated this measure
said that the question of cheap labor had to
be faced. The Nanaimo men must help
those at Northfield
Among other remarks Mr. Boyce said
that he hardly knew what the district com
prised. Was it Vancouver Island? If so,
there was a large variety in the scale of
wages paid as the rates at Wellington and
Union were aB a rule considerably lower
than here. The standard of wages must be
raised elsewhere or they would assuredly
fall here owing to the competition. He believed that the miners of Nanaimo would
not be prepared to pay a sum of about
$3,000 a month to keep the Northfield men,
which would be their honest duty if they
advised them to stop work, but thought
that it was a feasible suggestion that the
Nanaimo miners submit to a small reduction with the Northfield men so that the
Northfield men would still have enough .to
live on. This small reduction coming to so
many would be but small.
It was suggested by another miner that
the committee should go back to Mr. Robins
again and see if any better arrangement
could be come to.
Mr. Keith asked if any good could be done
by the committee going back.
Mr. Wilson believed that it would be no
good going to see Mr. Robins in the present
state of affairs, unless some proposal should
be made. He had seen Mr. Robins on
Wednesday night, who asked him if he had
any questions to ask before this meeting
took plaee. He, (Wilson) had replied that
he had no further remarks to make on the
subject.
It was suggested that the delegates go
and suggest a general reduction on a small
scale to equal what was required of North-
field so that the Northfield miners could
oontinue to work. It would show that
Northfield had friends behind it.
The next speaker did not believe in the
last suggestion, but that the men from
Northfield should come into town and work
in some of the mines here if it was necessary
to close Northfield or reduce wages. H*.*
believed there was room for more men on
Protection Island.
Another speaker believed the best plan
was that the miners of Nanaimo keep those
at Northfield whilst the mine was shut
down and the men refused the reduction.
Another miner said that honestly he could
not go to Mr. Robins and offer to accept
another reduction to assist the Northfield
men, but would rather that they voted for
the men not to accept the reduction at
Northfield and make up themselves in Nanaimo what was requisite to keep the men.
It was understood that Mr. Robins would
prefer to shut down Northfield than that
they should accept the reduotien.
Mr. Keith asked : Which are we going
to do? Are we justified iu doing as suggested���standing or working whether
Northfield does or no? Certainly not, the
whole trouble iB that we are in competition
with an inferior class of labor; that of
Union* they only got paid for soreened coal,
and therefore only get paid for two-thirds
of their coal, and so the ooBt of labor is
cheaper Therefore the ooal is supplied
cheaper from that source! and similar cases
at Wellington make a difference there.hence
the New Vancouver Coal Company have
(his cheaper labor to contend with
Are we in a position to advise the Northfield
men to stop work and are we then in a position to keep   them?   I think   not.

Latest advices from Honolulu concerning
the Miowera, state that when the water
was pumped out of the cofferdam that was
placed by Captain Metcalfe around the stern
of the steamer, the damage was found to be
much smaller than was expected according
to mail advices. The outer end of one of
the blades of the propeller iB twisted a lit
tie, while the other three were as good as
new. The stern suffered the most. As the
Btern frame is parted from the stern proper
the seven-eighth inch steel garboard plates
are badly twisted on either side, so much so
as to necessitate their removal. The false
bottom for about fifty feet from the stern is
broken in many places, yet the vessel does
not leak much, it was this false bottom
that prevented the Miowera from sinking
after she was floated from the coral
reef. It was the intention of Captain Metcalfe to put on the btern frame
temporarily at Honolulu until the vessel
gets to the dry-dock either in San Fran
cisco or at the colonies (which will be settled
wheu the steamer Warrimoo arrives on the
23rd inst) but as the foundry people found
the stern post broken three feet further in
than anticipated, a temporary stern frame
of wrought iron will be made at the Honolulu Iron Works and fitted at the stern of
the Miowera instead of her old Btern frame.
A new stern will have to be sent out from
the builders in England.
Word has been received from Honolulu
that Capt. Bergmann of the American bark

CALLING ARAMINTA BACK.
church, these two good Mien marched
straight to Mr. BTolgett'B house, announced themsolvce .-.���id tool: possession,
to the serious disappointment of Lucy���
the maid���who had just become interested in njinagiiig lier laia mistress's
bureau drawers, and the infinite >ii-*gust
of the cook, who had just commenced
to get drunk. Miss Hodson rescued Ara-
tninta's key's, locked up lier room, and
found work for Lucy in setting the dining table. Mrs. Merwin directed affairs
in the kitchen. Rebellion against two
fich energetic, experienced women was
i Jooriy impossible, and when John came
home tho dinner awaiting him was one
that Araminta herself never excelled.
''Though it does seem like a waste of
good victuals, to set such a meal before
a man stricken with grief and naturally
without any appetite when in sorrow,
most likely," commented the spinster,
who had strange ways of giving undue
prominence to her ignorance of men.
''Humph I" sniffed the wiser Mrs, Merwin, "men are critters you must feed
under all circumstances.    I've read in
novels a heap about love and grief spoiling their appetites,  but never saw anything of the sort, and don't believe it.
Why, a man will eat a hearty breakfast
while the Sheriff is waiting to hang him
when he gets through.    I've read   of
them doing it.   From the cradle to the
grave the one thing they live for is���to
eat.   All the events of their lives are
simply incidents that happen between
meals.   They tell us that in the New
Jerusalem 'there shall be neither marrying nor giving in marriage' (Miss Hod-
son sighed), but I take notice they speculate on 'rivers of miik and honey,' which
is figurative, of course,  like most of
Scripture, for naturally where you get
milk you have beef critters���but milk is
more poetic���and what would be the
use of so much honey if you weren't to
have any bread to spread it on?"
"Don't you think, sister Merwin,"
suggested the spinster, timidly, "that
you take the words of the promises a
little too literally?"
"No. You can't be too literal for a
man when you come to talk about feed,
either here or in the hereafter."
Mr. Blodgett's appetite hardly did justice to the widow's expectations. He
Imaged the face he had so long been accustomed to Btsil opposite him at every
meal; the setting of the table was novel
to him; Miss Hodson innocently put milk
in his tea; Mrs. Merwin had not known
that he loathed mutton; altogether it
seemed to him as if he were dining out,
���nd that Araminta might at any minute
come in to say: "John it is time for us
to be going." It was a great relief for
him when the announcement of a visitor,
Mr. Blnathan Flitters���who came to offer his condolences���afforded excuse for
escape from the table.
Mr. Flitters was a nice, well meaning
man, good rather than bright, of whose
society it was not difficult to get an
elegent sufficiency in a short time when
he mounted hisonehobby���spiritualism.
The "Summer-In nd" was known to him
as Paris or Oslfltosh may be to other
persons. All '1 iparted greatness wan.
so to speak, "kept on tap" tor him, and
its 'communications literally "drawn
from the wood" by his mediums for his
benefit. One had only to know the gems
of thought freely bestowed npon him by
the intellectual giants, "on the other
shore" to recognize how different
they were from the crude mental
products of earth life. There, for instance, was that 6weet assurance by
Carlyle: "My friend, it is good to be
good, not for the good there is in goodness, but for the goodness of being
good." Of course Carlyle never could
nave said anything like that when he
was alive. Probably he would rather
have been kicked than have dono so.
But, being dead, that was his style.
And Mr. Flittors could quote such things
to you all night', a fact which minimized
eagerness for his companionship among
thoje who knew him. To ,*.���* ��� the genuineness of those commutiii'utions questioned by scop1 ies and scoffers saddened
but did not auger him. He earnestly
pitied the donbters.
"That which I know���I know," he
would reply calmly, "I've called for
thousands of those who have gone before, all the great names in history,
sacred and profane, from Adam down,
and none have failed to respond, Would
you reject their multitudinous testimony? I hope not. Why; il was but
the other nigh, that Marc Antony came
to us; did not wait to bo called for, but
just dropped in. and at my request repeated his great speech over Cesar's
body, commencing:
"Friends, Unmans, countrymen, lend me
' your oars; ,     .��    ,.
1 enmo tu lairy Cesar, not to praise mm."
"The medium wrote it all down, just
as he delivered it, and it is word for
word as reported by Shakespeare. Could
you doubt such evidence as that? I
Lope not."
Mr. Flitter's present mission was not
the mere offering of empty oondolence.
It was his habit to call wherever ho was
acquainted, as soon as possible After an
invasion by Death in a domestic circle,
and urge upon t*'l9 survivors th? jv*.'"*ti-
Ottbility ana B'lvlsabifity of opining up
cominunicatiu.'.s at onto with the dear
departed. The sooflM' this Was done, he
averred, before the spirit s'ti'iiyed a**"*.,','
011 excursions into infinite sjiii'O, to
which it would And itself impelled by
natural curiosity, tne easier it would be
of accomplishment, Mr. Blodgett, he
said, had had ouly to say the word in
older to have his wishes gratified, if he
desired to speak with his wife again or
even to see her.
The widower's mental vision beheld
again that white, still face in the casket,
so real, yet so horribly unlike the woman who had wa Iked by his side through
more than a quarter of a century of life,
and he shuddered.
"I don't know," he replied, hesitatingly, "about bothering Araminta���before
���he gets sort of settled down in her new
surroundings anyway. Everything over
there must be strange to her yet���if it is
at all like what you say. She never
could bear to be pestered when she had
anything on hor mind; just wanted to be
let alone until she had had her think
out. I guess we'd better let her be for
Ihe present."
"But, "argued Mr. Flitters, "this is the
T��ry time when she will be most grateful for recall. Lovely as the summer-
land is, she is a stranger, and may not
yet have run across any friends. In her
lonesomeness she will be glad to know
she is cherished in remembrance by
friends here. And she cannot return
uninvited. Just think that in silence
she stretches out her appealing hands to
you from the golden snore. She only
awaits your call to return and be your
guardian angel. Ah' do not repulse the
angel visitor, Mr. Blodgett. Cull her
back."
The ladies joined their solicitations to
those of Mr. Flitters, not that positive
Mrs, Merwin *'really believed anything
would come of it, but at least there
would be no h irm in trying. Eventually Mr. Blodgett succumbed to the
pressure of the trio.
"Well," he assented, "I agree. Araminta is welcome to come back if it
seoms fittin' to her to do so. But how
do you propose to fetch her?"
"Ah!" ejaculated Mr. Flitters, triumphantly, "leave that to me���to me
and Mrs. Husslewell. I should say. A
wonderful woman .Mrs. Husslewell is,
sir; gifted with miraculous power. I
will bring her here to -morrow night,
and you shall see for yourself. Yes, sir.
You shall see���what you shall see."
When Mr. Blodgett went  up to his
room that night his surroundings there
painfully accentuated his sense of bereavement. He and Araminta were old-
fashioned folks,  who had occupied the
same apartment, in common, all their
married lives and naturally the traces
of her presence were, to those of his, in
the proportion of  ten to one.   Everything of which his senses took cognizance reminded him of "the touch of the
vanished livid and the sound of a voice
that was still."   The air was still heavy
with the perfume she used; her toilet
appliances were scattered over the top
of the bureau;   an open door showed a
closet hung full of her dresses; one of
her wrappers was draped over a rocking chair, as if she had just thrown it
off; a withered bunch of flowers, tbe
last she saw with mortal sight, stood
upon a stand by the bed; on the mantel
was a book she had been reading, with
her scissors stuck between the leaves to
mark where she left off;  as he groped
under the bed for his slippers his fingers
first came in oontact with hers, and as
he sat down to take off his shoes the
"tidy" on the back of the chair, pulled
loose by his shoulders, slipped down,
and one of its pins jabbed him cruelly
in the small of tbe back, It was perhaps
the thousandth time that had happened
to him, and as he tore the thing loose
from its moorings near his spine and
hurled it, with a half-smothered execration, across the room, he vowed that
would never occur again.   He always
had   hated  '"tidies,"   but   Araminta
possessed a mania for them, and consequently they were on every chair in the
house���let him who could find one of
them after to morrow.
Stirring the fire and putting his slippered feet on the fender before it, he
sank into reverie. Naturally that which
was uppermost in his thoughts was the
calling back of Araminta. How might
it affect her chances of participation in
the general resurrection. If sho broke
the programme, which, according to the
preacher, was that she should sleep
until then? But. then, the preacher had
said some queer aud probably untrue
things, and his imformation about the
resurrection scheme might be unreliable. He said that damnation had been
the common lot of all who lived prior
to the coming of Christ, and that proposition did not commend itself to any fair-
minded man. How about Moses, and
David, and Elias, and Jonah, and Lot,
and lots more of the Biblical worthies?
Were they all damned? And tlie repeated assurance that "the blood of
Christ wash"th away all sin" surely had
not a leg io stand on, logically, nor was
admissible upon any hypothesis that
WOidd be creditable to God.
Mr. Uiv ->'Mt, it will be perceived, was
little, if any, better than a heathen, for
he had the audacity.to reason about these
things���to which fife attention was now,
for the first time, sericimly drawn���instead of accepting everything by faith,
as the preacher said he should, His
cogitations, or Mrs. Hodson'sstrong tea,
made him nervous, so he knew' there
was no use in going to bed, and thought
he would like to smoke a cigar. He had
already si irted for his ''study," the little deu. which was the only place in all
that big house where Araminta had allowed him to burn tobacco, when he
suddenly remembered that there was
nobody now to object to his smoking
wherever he pleased, nobody to care
whether "the smell got into the curtains " or not. So he lighted the fragrant
roll and sat down again, with a sigh
that was not wholly regretful pain. It
did seem *. * him that there was a tremulous movement iu the air as if of a
groan tli.it was almost audible, but of
course ill t was only his nerves, he said
to himself, and ho went on with his
musings snd smoking.
When he had finished his cigar he
tossed its butt into the grate and went
to bod. Never before had he realized
how big that bed was. Its wideness
made hint feel lonesome. After a time
he dropped into a doze, from which he
waked suddenly, with u violent .-.tart
and a thrill of horror. His arm was
thrown over something that lay beside
him, a tangible, bodily form, round and
cold, The liro had died down, an . the
room W*as dark, He leaped out of bed,
lighted the gas and looked. Tho form
was still there. It was the spare pillow.
With a snort of disgust he said to him-
��elf;
"I wouldn't have been such a fool if
that old maid had not given me such
confoundedly strong tea and insisted
upon my taking two cups of it."
He felt that it would be useless to try
again to sleep without taking something
to quiet his nerves, an ire.uei.i. ���������re.; that
a little closet in his den contained a
soother which would be likely to meet
the emergency. Lighting a candle, he
went to get it, walking cautiously on
tip-toe, though if he had stopped to think
he would have remembered there was
now nobody asleep iii that part of the
house. When he entered the den he
pulled down the window blind, bolted
the door, and then opened a little closet
concealed in the wall. The medicine
was before him in a decanter bearing
tho mysterious initials "S.O.P." He
was just about pouring some of it
into a glass and taking it "straight,""
when the happy thought occurred to him
that it would be inucli more palatible,
perhaps even more enjoyable, with the
addition of hot water and sugar; also
that it might be more efficacious if sipped slowly, while he smoked a cigar lie-
fore his bedroom fire. JWell, why should
