Executive Partiality.
An examination into tlm tiont
. meat $*w Westminster District
(both city and country) lias received
nt the hands of the present Govern
ment, as compared with some other
Districts which might be named,
reveals the most glaring injustice,
That portion of the Provincial trunk
road lying within its bounds is systematically neglected. As has been
shown elsewhere, through travel
and local interests are permitted to
sutler serious inconvenience for want
of a bridge which $150 would re-
pluco, while on those portions of the
road lying within other Districts
many thousands of the public revenue are expended every year. Nor
is the Vedder Creek bridge an isolated case. There is not a settlement in tho District that has not
experienced similar treatment. Look,
for instance, at tlm road hctweei
this city and Burrard Inlet. With
the "exception of tlio road between
Victoria i-iul Esquinialt, we are not
aware of another over which the
same amount of trallic passes all the
year round ; and yet it is allowed
to remain in a condition but one
rtimove from ihe impassable. As
hits been frankly admitted, it would
cost a very large amount of money
to make it a good road j bub it tins
been shown tliat a really good road
could be constructed on u more
generally useful route at a cost of
loss than two thousand dollars—n
road which, once miults would be
"a joy forever." And yet the Executive refuse even to'have a survey
of the road made iu order to demonstrate its practicability. Wero it a
case of a road iu Victoria District,
for instance, the paopto would not
have to ask twice for it; although
New Westminster District would
make moro than a dozen of it, ant],
as a revenue producer, is equal to
nearly a score of it, yet the settlets
must be content to be cut oil' with
a shilling, white the little favorite
gets its pound. That such should
be the treatment meted out to this
the premier District, considering
that all three members went over to
tho Government side of the House
and saved the Ministry from certain
defeat, is a political phnuomeiioti.
It would really seem as if the present Ministers were so essentially
Victorian as to have forgotten Unit
there is a Mainland at nil. They
are scarcely ever seen beyond tho
precincts of that town, and the
maimer in which the revenues are
expanded would lead one to conclude
that they have learned to think
Victoria British Columbia.
Wanted, Bone and Sinew.
What is most needed in the State
of California, says the Ilaltethi, is
an addition of two hundred thousand people of the class who will bo
neither rich nor poor—of the great
middle class, if you please. What
is true of California in this respect,
is equally true of British Columbia.
What is wanted is bone and sinew
—thew, to develop the vast and
varied latent resources of the country. We have just been reading an
account of a Swiss colony, established
recently in tho Southern States. The
robust tiller of Alpine soil says, "I
exchanged my one acre in my nativo
valley for one hundred and forty
acres here; and now every acre of
my one hundred and forty is worth
•s much as the one acre in Fatherland." And so it is. In the old,
overcrowded countries of Europe,
men are one to thtt aoi'B ; while here
thero tire at tho vory least one hundred and sixty equally fertile acres
free to every comer. Look at Ireland. Just think of five millions of
people flying at one another's throats,
and all about the right to a few
acres. Look again at the tillers of
the soil iu England and Scotland,
elbowed into a narrow space, in
many instances, in order  that the

^Scientific Atisccllam).
A Neapolitan gardener, after years
of experiment, hns produced a camelia
with a delicate perfume, and he thinks
it probablo that these Mowers may in
the near future be so cultivated as to
rival the rose in the fragrance of its
odor.
A new theory of tho so-called fascination of birds by makes is that the
liird mistakes the siuilfs's tongue, which
the reptile keeps iu a constant and
rapid motion, fur a lively worm, and
watches it intently with the anticipation of devouring it.
Two Loipaie chemists have devised
a process'for obtaining sugar in a permanently liquid form. This result is
said to be eHhutod by adding to a purified sugar solution a small quantity of
citric acid, which cuinbinos with the
sugar ami deprives it of its tendency
to crystallize.
Soma experiments by M. Gutter
appear tu prove that human saliva possesses, in a mil Ui' degree, the same
poisonous property as that of serpents.
Tlm hitman saliva injected under the
skin of a bird caused death, with symptoms very closely resembling those
resulting from serpent bites.
Lite investigations of German scientists have shown that thu electric light is
not only healthier than other methods
of illumination, in leaving the air purer,
but that it increases thu power of
vision in aoiuo respects,- especially in
distinguish ma, colors. Red. blue,
yroen and yellow lire much more distinct under this light than by day-
light.
M. Pasteur 1ms resolved to extend
his studies in vaccination to yellow
fever, with a view of determining
whether or not tho disease is due to
parasites and can bo guarded sign nut
by inoculation. A broad field of investigation is open to Pasteur, as it is
suggested by his discoveries thus far
that all contagious maladies may l>o
due to parasitic growths, the virulence
of which may be so reduced by his
method of inoculation ab to render
this class of diseases no longer a matter of dread.
Mr. C Shaker Smith has given the
results of extensive observations iu
relation to the pressure exerted by the
wind. Tlio most violent gale recorded
by Iii tu was at East St. Louis, in 1871,
when the wind overturned a locomotive, the force developed in so doing
being no less thnn 03 pounds per square
foot. At St. Charles a jail was destroyed in 1877, the pressuru required
using 81 pounds per square foot. At
Munhfiold, iu 1880, a brick mansion
was levelled, the force necessary being
58 pounds per squaro foot. Below
these extraordinary pressures j Mr.
Smith instance* numerous cases of
trains blown oil1 rails, and bridges,
etc., blown down by gales of 24 to 31
pounds per square foot. In all the
examples the lowest force required to
do the observed damage has been taken
as the maximum power of the wind,
although, uf course, it may have been
higher.
Enthusiasts who make a special study
of sun-spots and attendant phenomena
believe that tho corner-stone of a new
science is being laid by discoveries
pointing to an intimate connection between solar and terrestrial meteorology.
Just what the connection is they are
not yet ablo clearly to detins, although
electricity is suspected of being the
ayout through which the effects are
manifested upon our planet. It is
known that tlm gaseous envelope of
the sun is affected by eruptions of
such prodigious magnitude -as to be
utterly beyond our power of conception, those disturbances appearing to
us in the form of rapidly changing
spots and protuberances. The eras of
the spots—or sun storms—occur at remarkably regular intervals, a complete
cyclo of the various stages of activity
from maximum to minimum and again
to maximum being performed in about
eleven years—the so-called "sun-spot
period." The sun-spot physicists claim
a coincidence of the periods of maximum spots and years of great atmospheric and physical disturbance in the.
earth. The present has been a yoar of
great solar disturbances, while it has
been marked by violent storms and
earthquakes upon our globe. Further
than this, theso scientists claim to have
recently detected by simullaneous observation minor atmospheric changes
as thu result of corresponding movements in the sun. Many dilliculties
attend these observations, but the
Astronomer Royal for Scotland and
others believe that the slate of the
auu will somo day become an important factor in weather forecasts and
Hlce calculations.

Janus Journalism.
In tho election of Fohniary, 1874,
the Guardian denounced Mr. Homer
ns utterly undeserving of public
coniiilenc*, branded his supporters
as miserable slaves, and adjured the
electors to semi Mr. Cunningham to
Ottawa, because he had "no connection with the cumiptionist party"
' (i. 9. tho party now in power) and
would give a solid support to the
party then in power (now "tlioso
horrid Grits"). In tho election of
March, 1878, tlie same paper strongly
opposed tho return of Dr. Moltllios,
because, although pledging himself
to support the Mackenzie Government so long as justice was done to
British Columbia, ho was suspected
of Conservative taint; and it fairly
howled for the return of Mr. Robinson, became he was a "dyed-in-the-
wool-Grit," and could bo relieil upon
to stand by tho party, right or
wrong I In the election of September, 1878, the same paper again
backed its "Grit" against Dr. Mc-
Innes, because the former was more
"utterly utter" in support of the
Macken/.io Administration. Now,
we are not censuring tho Guardian
for the position it took on the occasions referred to. Nothing of the
kind. On the contrary, we think it
was natural and fitting that New
Westminster should give its support
to a Government which appeared
to ' be doing its best towards
promoting a judicious location and
speedy construction of the Canadian
Paeifio Railway in this Provinco;
although the wisdom of selecting a
representative who would support
that or any other party, right or
wrong, was open to question. The
object of recalling these litt'e historical incident* is merely to contrast
the "then and now" of the Guardian,
And it actually lias the audacity
to talk now about "jim crow politicians," because one of the candidates in tho present contest, who
•upportedtheMackenzie Government
while it was endeavoring to carry
out a wise railway policy, announced
his intention of supporting the present Government while it carries out
a wise and just railway policy!
British Columbia's position we conceive to be altogether exceptional in
respect to political parties. Canada, as one of the high contracting
parties, has for long bean in default;
and until such time as the great
railway obligation shall be fulfilled,
Columbia cannot reasonably be expected (alio is not expected) to absolutely fall into Canadian party
lines along with tho old Provinces.
Until then she must, to a certain
extont, hold herself froo to support
the Government that will do the
light thing by her. Tho present
Government are showing a dispo
sition to do justice to the Pacific
Province. While, therefore, not
prepared to go to the extremes indulged in by our contemporary,
and send to Ottawa a representative who would sacrifice, principle
and the rights of the Province to
party, we do think that both duty
and interest require us to send one
who, while giving a generous support to the party now in powor,
lo long at it carries out a policy
that is fair and satisfactory, will
not become the bond-slave of any
political party, but preserve his independence and reserve his influence
to be employed in obtaining justice
{or Columbia. Of all tin candidates now in the field, or yearning
so to be, we believe Mr. Homer
to be the one who will iu the
highest degree fulfil those conditions ; and it is, therefore, with
every satisfaction that tho Columbian accords to him a cheerful and
Jwarty support.
Tlie True Policy.
More clearly than over one can
now realize tin soundness of tho
policy which made the head of
navigation on the Lower Fraser the
initial point for railway construction
in British Columbia. Had the
commencement been made on the
seaboard, on* can sea very clearly
at what a disadvantage our own
producers and carriers, both on the
Lower  Fraser-and iu the interior,
must have been placed.    With the
railway    track  laid   from   where
ocean-going  ships would moore in
Burrard Inlet, not only would tho
whole carrying trade have been lost
to our people, but shiploads of foreign food products would be whisked
over   the contractor's line free of
expense to the front, thus not only
driving back produce from the interior, but virtually   shutting out
the   produce of   the valley of the
Lower   Fraser.     The   same   arguments wliich demonstrate and establish the wisdom of commencement
at the head of river navigation can
fairly be urged in favor of selecting Pitt river, or some other convenient point on the Fraser river, for
the commencement of construction
on the lower section.     As the work
on the Emory-Suvona section recedes
from the producers on  the Lower
Fraser, it  becomes of vital importance that work on the lower section shall bo so begun and continued
as to contribute in the largest degree
towards the development of domestic resources and industries, and the
enrichment of our own people.   Let
us   see  how  these important conditions  would  bo fulfilled by commencement   on Burrard Inlet:   A
public   work   of   such   magnitude
could not possibly fail to attract a
large amount of shipping and trade,
and thus not only would our tradespeople and carriers be cut out, but
onr farmers, having to go round by
the sea iu order to reach the princi
pal  market, would be compelled to
meet and competo with   fleets  of
shipping laden with foreign produce.
Tho   market   would   be   removed
farther from them  and nearer to
their foreign rivals.    We may, perhaps, be told that the conditions we
have been describing would become
modified or disappear as the working forces receded from the seaboard
and came within more easy reach of
our own food-producing acres.    But
we would ask tho reader to reflect
how  difficult it is to disturb trade
when   once settled   in a channel.
Large maritime and commercial interests  would have already grown
up ut the sea terminus, and when it
is considered that the movement of
supplies from the ship over the railway track to tho front would really
involve no appreciable expense to
the contractor, it  will readily be
seen   that   foreign   produce would
enjoy a dangerous advantage over
our own all along the line.    To
make the .point of commencement
on tho rivet- instead of on the Inlet,
leaving to the last the construction
of that portion  lying between the
initial point and the sea, would be
most effectually to turn the tables
against foreign producers and carriers, and in favor of our own, and
would contribute  very largely  towards   building   up   an important
commercial centre and creating flourishing and happy communities all
over the fertile delta lands so well
fitted to produce food for the armies
of workers. And if theso supremely
important objects can be legitimately
attained, without requiring that railway  work shall  be   carried   on at
serious disadvantage, who will say
that it is not a sacred duty to so
arrange matters as that their attainment shall be scoured 1   This most
important agricultural District has
not as yet derived very much benefit from railway work, and it seems
not nt all  unreasonable  to expect
that  when the portion of the railway lying within its bounds is being
put under contract, the same con-
sidorations  wliich  led  to tho commencement   at   Emory  will secure
commencement at Pitt river.    And
it should be remembered that, while
pleading for the interests of this the
premier   District,  wo   are, at   the
same   time,   advocating   a   policy
which would  inure to the advantage of British Columbia as a province and as a part of tho Dominion—for that policy  which, while1
involving   no   countervailing, .disadvantage, tends to curtail  tho impoverishing outflow of wealth and
retain amongst our own peoplo the
largest possiblo percentage  of   tho
millions  of    railway   expenditure,
must bb   beneficial   and   patriotic.
There is no surer way to enrich the
nation than  by enriching the farmers ; and thoro is really no reason
for expecting that thoro shall over
again ariso nn opportunity as favorable for expanding and enriching
tho agricultural comiminiAs on the
Lower Fraser as that which would
be presented by railway construction,   wisely  begun  and   properly
directed.    But, in order that the
settlements on both sides of tho
river may be benefitted to tlie fullest
extent, it is essontial that tho Provincial Government shall como
promptly and energetically' to tho
work so long neglected of establishing more facile communication between tho producers and the centres
of consumption, by the opening up
of ronds, the establishment of ferries,
and tlio replacement of bridges, itc;
for unless this be dono there are
important settlements which would
inevitably bo excluded from tho
markets, no matter where construction commences.

The Mechanic's Institute.—The

that there should be a full attendance
of subscribers and others interested in

Ruun Out.—We have to acknowledge the receipt of two communications, the publication of which we
must decline. Tho one cm the subject
of closing saloons on Sunday is too
lengthy for onr columns, and the one
({iving an account of a Delta enlm'taUi-
meat is not suitable for publication.
The Eastern Trrminus.—Tho question of what is called a winter terminus for tho Canadian Pacific Railway

An Urgent Neeo. — If the kept
paper of the Provincial Government
iu this city has any influence, why
doos it not uso it for tho purpose of
having the Coquitlam river bridged
whore the Pitt river road crosses it ?
That has been a nesesiity for years
past. It becomes still more urgent in
view of railway construction. But
we forgot. Our contomporary is paid
for not Urging the Government to meet
the public noed.1.
The War Waste.—Great Britain is
adding three new war-ships to hor
lloet. Tho estimates provide two and
a-half million dollars for the hulls of
two of them, and tho steul-faoed armor
required for the Culling wood will alouu
coat half a million. Tho rucout little
war with Afghanistan coat one hundred
and twenty millions. It is estimated
that the cost of tho six groat wars
amongst tho Christian nations during
the last twonty.flve years cost fifteen
billions iu money and two millions iu
men!
Who Is It?—In a late Ottawa paper
we find the following:—"Wanted to
hire immediately, a servant with good
references, to accompany a lady to
British Columbia."
"The British Columbian."
Robson Brothers-have changed the
name and style of their paper from the
D. P. Herald to that of British Ooe-

Speaking at Cobourg, Ontario, last
month, Sir Chas. Tupper said:—I have
gone to the far west, to the Pacific
coast; I visited Vancouver Island and
Victoria; I have gone two or three
hundred miles into tho interior of British Columbia to tho foot of the Rocky
Mountains; I have visited Manitoba
and the North-West, and mingled with
the people there from Koewatin on the
east to Brandon on tlie west; I have
coma down through tlio provinces of
Ontario and Quebec, visited a large
portion of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and traversed Prince Edward
Island from end to end. And here J
stand to-night to say, in the presence
of this great audience, that from sea to
sea, from the Atlantic to the Pacific,
from the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the
Straits of Georgia, I defy anyone to
show me a country more united, prosperous and happy than Canada is today.    (Loud cheers.)
Why?
It is now known that tho Provincial
Legislature will riot be called together
before the latter part of next month.
Why this delay? It is more convenient
for both thu members and the country
that the sessions should bo earlier, and
an understanding was como to that tlio
Legislature should meet eurly iu January. Why it is to bo called together
later this year can only be guessed at;
but, whatever thu reason may bo, we
concieve it to be m»it unfortunate in
thu present circumstances* In view
of the ilear,approach <■■? railway work
iu the valley of the Lower Fraser, it
becomes of supreme importance that
the appropriations and the road and
bridge making should come earlier
than usual this year. And, then, there
is tho important question of placing in
the market tho lands included within
the railway belt. It is really too bad
that tho public interests should thus be
mado to sutler.
- iNarlgatlon liiiheUniijons.
It in already known that the contractor for the C. P. Railway is having a staunch little steamer built for
navigating tho Fraser river above
Boston Bar. It is intended that the
steamer shall run up as far as Lillobet
Should it bo successful in doing that
tho result will not only bo satisfactory
to tho contractor but highly advantageous to an important section of
country. There is a large area of land
lying around LUlooet, admirably
adapted for the production of cereals;
but the great drawback has boon the
absence of a market, or moro properly
speaking, the absence of means for
the transportation of produce to the
distant markets. But with a steamer
plying between Lillooot and tho railway works the product of tlio Lillooet
wheat fields could bo readily and
cheaply transported to the very best
market. We sincerely hope this Bteam-
boat enterprise may prove a complete
success.
Important from Mcilakatlafi
Mission,
News from the Mcilakatlah mission
is of a very interesting character. Mr.
Duncan voluntarily surrendered the
church at Motlnkutlah to Bishop Ridley, and the congregation loft in a
body, nailed up the doors and windows
and refusod to permit the bishop to
officiate therein. It seems that thu
church was built by the Indians with
their own labor and fundi, and they
decline to give it up to the church
authorities. After endeavoring to obtain possession, the Bishop with Mrs.
Ridley left for England to lay a statement of the case before tho S, P. G.
Tho clergy rocognize the authority of
tho bishop, while tlio lay teachers support Mr. Duncan, whose labors in connection the evangelization and civilization of tho Indian tribes on the
N. W. coast have boon attended with
signal success. The information at
hand is meagre.— Colonist.
A Public Market.
A market-place, where the producer
nnd consumer could conveniently meet
for business, is very much required in
this city. As the matter stands at present thoro is no means of knowing
market prices. Tho consequence is
that tho farmer brings his produce into town and, at very great inconvenience, hawks it around; and, iu many
instances; ho is obliged to sell to "middle-men" at extremely unsatisfactory
prices. The result of* all this is that
Now Westminster is looked upon as
anything but an attractive market, and
many of our most substantial settlers
are giving it tho go-by. Our merchants
and citizens generally would be studying their own interests by promoting
the establishment of a public market,
and doing everything in their power
t-o wauls making this a favorite market
with the farmers, and the present is a
fitting time for agitating tho subject,
when we aro entering upon a now year
and choosing a new Council. Especially is it important that this question
should be taken up iu an earnest and
practical spirit, in view of tlie near approach of railway Construction in this
vicinity, If our traders continue to
stand in their own tight in this matter
they will discover, perhaps when too
late, that the trade has boon lost to

To the Municipal Electors of
New Westminster City:
Gentlemen, and the few Lady
Votbes :—
Mr. Ferris has already told you that
you will soon be called upon to select
a competent person to serve you tv*
Mayor of this city for the present
year. He has told you very truly
that he is a map of great experience,
that he has already received great
Honor by serving you, and that he
hopes to receive still further hoii'ire
in your service. Mr. Ferris has indeed had a good deal to do with the
management of the Municipal affairs
of this city, both as Mayor nnd Councillor, and during tho incumbency of
other Mayors he has been left in the
undisturbed possession of the Bench
—so that it has been said with a
good dial of truth that the government of the Municipality was his.
Who, then, is responsible for the
rank growth of all this gambling in
whisky saloons, directly causing suicide in one deplorable instance, the
foul murder of the half-breed Cauldor
in another (whose blood still crieth
for vengeance), and the open drunkenness that is to bo seen ou our streets
every day, to say nothing of the prostitution of Indians and half-breeds
that is unblnshingly carried on in our
very midst? And how is it just now
that some of those dens have been
allowed to run defiantly without licoiiso?
If Mr. Ferris can show, with all the
honors that he has received by being
in authority, that he is not responsible for tins deplorable state of things
in Now Westminster at present, then,
and not till then, can he,flutter himself that he is entitled to the confidence of any other than those whom
he has so indulged.
If thero woro any hopes of any man
offering himself as Mayor, whose past
record was calculated to inspire mo
with confidence and hope, I would
never think to offer myself for such a
position In such a community, because
I know that to tako hold of this filthy
state of things wottld( prove to be a
very undesirable task*, especially ss
there are so very fow that dare stand
up for tho right and form a morel
breastwork against such an insidious
foe. But, until such a one does como
forward, I am at your disposal, I
seek no empty honors. I have no nr.e
to grind but the one that will hew
down this itpas tree that has well-nigh
blasted every vestige of morality in
this community.
In conclusion, I would say lo all tho
ladies in this community, whether
voters or not, if you will esercise
your influence, I may be the mean? of
preventing your gray hairs from going
down to the grave in sorrow for your
sons, who are in danger of being decoyed into these windoia-tcreened dens
of infamy that have been multiplying
lately in consequence of the criminal
neglect of our city fathers.

THE ENCHANTED PRINCESS
(Continued.)
I went with the child—along a succession of interminable and dark passages that seemed as if they had been
partitioned out of large and imposing
chambers, but had been for warmth
or convenience boarded off to suit tlie
needi of an impoverished household.
Presently Fritz stopped before a door,
and threw it widely open. I found
myself in h large and spacious gallery.
It was oak-panelled and lined with
blackened family portraits. A bright
fire of pine-logs blazed in the ample
hearth, in front of which stood a tall
and handsome old man with a long
flowing beard and piercing black eyes.
Another man—not unlike himself, but
much younger—was seated at a writing-table near him. He was evidently
tho old man's son, As I entered, the
voices of both men wero raised in animated, almost in angry dismission,
Their eyes flashed; their faces were
flushed; they gesticulated with their
hands, Ai the door opened, a sudden
lilenoe fell upon both of them; but
tnough of expression remained upon
their agitated faces to make me suddenly repent that I had unwittingly come
to take shelter in this strange old
palace. They looked bad nion— evil-
natured, both of them. I almost wished myself back in tho forest amongst
the pine-trees and the wolves.
"Who have wo bore?" said the
Count of Errenholt, in sudden surprise, as he beheld mo; and there was
a frown upon his brow,
"It is a traveller, grandfather, whom
I found in the forest. He had lost
his way, and I asked him to come back
here," explained little Fritz, boldly.
"I venture to hope, sir, that you
will be charitable enough to givo me a
night's shelter under your roof, and lo
direct me in the morning upon tho
road for Dornhof, to which I am
bound."
I said this in as polite and deferential a manner as I could, perceiving
that this gruff old savage must bo cajoled and not irritated.
At the first sound of my voice, how-
ever, I becamo instantly aware that
there was another occupant of the
long chamber whom I had not noticed
before. A fluttering sound in one of
the deep window recesses caught my
attention. I half turned, and saw to
my astonishment one of the most beautiful young women' it has over been
my fortune to behold. She was tall
and very slender, with dusky, raven-
black hair, and glorious Urge eyes of
nn unfathomable hue. Sbo was very
pale, and lookod delicate and fragile.
Hor eyes fixed themselves eagerly
upon me, and her lips parted.
The old man answered my remark
not uncivilly.
"You are welcome, sir. Pray scat
yourswlf near the five; this weather is
truly inclement. This is my son, Carl
von Errenholt. My little grandson
Fritz has doubtless introduced himself
already. He is the child of a daughter
loin since dead."
I bowed to Hen* Carl von Errenholt,
nnd then, before taking the chair he
offered, turned inquiringly towards
the lady in the window. Tho Count
followed my glance — he frowned
slightly.
"I do not intrnduco you to that
lady, sir, becauso she is subject to a
great affliction—she is deaf and dumb
nnd not quite right in hor mind, poor
thing. Unfortunately for my son
Carl, she is his wife."
As he spoke these words an expression of abject terror swept over tlio
beautiful pale face; and when hn mentioned the faet of her being his daughter-in-law, she raised her hands iu a
gesture of horror nnd dissent, and a
sound (half cry, half groan) escaped
from her lips.
The Count smiled pitifully.
"You see, poor thing, she just understands that we are speaking of hor
and resents it—it is part, alas! of her
infirmity. Wo sre much to be pitied,
sir," with a deep sigh, "in having so
great a family misfortune in our midst;
but no more of this sad subject. You
are a Frenchman, perhaps, sir ?"
"No, I am English," I replied; and
as I spoke a sudden flush leapt up into
the wax-white face of that beautiful
woman.
Deaf .Mid dumb as she was, it was
almost as if she understood and was
agitated by my words. I looked at
her with deep interest and compassion.
Little Fritz had crept to her side, and
was kissing and caressing her hand;
he called her "Nella, dear Holla," and
told her something about tho berries
he had failed tu get for her. He spoke
slowly and in a whisper, and sbo seemed tu gather what he said by the movement of his lips. She nodded to him
kindly, but she kept on looking across
his yellow head towards me. The old
man possibly noticed that we exchanged frequent glances, for his brow grew
darker and darker, and at length, with
some muttered imprecation between
his teeth and a scowl of rage and
hatred, he made a violent gesture towards Nella, and pointed angrily to
the door.
The unhappy woman rose trembling,
almost fainting, with fear, and moved
to obey him. A natural instinct of
compassion and sympathy caused mo
to spring to the door, regardless of tho
effect which my politeness might have
upon the two men. Nella half hold
up her hand to warn me away; but ns
I bowed deeply and respect fully to her
as she passed out, she raised hor lovely
eyes to mine with an expression of
such gratitude and such pitiful entreaty, that the glance set all my
pulses beating nnd tingling with the
glamour of her wonderful beauty. She
passed out in silence with a bunt head;
and little Fritz followed her, clinging
closely to her long dark skirts.
It was night. I had been fed and
warmed. The Count of Errenholt and
his son had been not inhospitable in
their treatment of me; they had helped
me to thi best of fare, and had entertained me with recitals of thu chase;
they had told me tales of boar-hunts
nnd wolf-hunts, of hair-breadth adventures, and of daring exploits, and
had woven them up with their wild
legends of forest lore, till I had felt
truly that I must bo back again
amongst some lawless freebooting
chiefs of the middle ages.   They had
Jrrown jovial in their potations, and
tad waxed friendly, and pressed me
to stay another day as their guost; but
never a word .more had they spoken of
the deaf and dumb woman whom I
had seen at my first arrival. The boy
'I had seen again, but Nella had appeared no more, nor did either father
or son make tho faintest allusion to
their afflicted and beautiful relative,
And now I was alone in the chamber in which I was to spend the night
—a great vaulted, thy 'tried room,
scantily furnished with a fow necessaries and a low truckle-bed iu tho far
corner that somehow did not look an
inviting couch upon which to rest my
wearied limbs. In the middle of the
apartment my wallet had been deposited. It contained a change of clothes,
and rather a considerable sum of
money, chiefly iu English bank-notes,
which was safely locked into an inner
division of the bag, the key of which
I wore upon a chain round my neck.
Tho idea of robbery had certainly not
occurred to me, and yet I instinctively
took the precaution of ascertaining
that my money was safe.
At the far cud of the room was a
turret in tho wall with three windows
opening round it; they were closely
curtained. I was in no hurry to go
tobed, and a natural curiosity prompted
me to draw back the curtains and look
out into the night. There was a lovely
moonlight, and the white snow gleamed
like molten silver far away among the
dark glades of tho piuo-forest. The
windows opened to the floor, and a
sm-ill balcony ran round the outside of
the turret, wliich formed, in fact, one
of the corners of the houso.' I stepped
out, and leaning upon tho iron railing
of the balcony, surveyed in silence
the strange and desolate scene btfore
me. Not a breath of wind stirred
among the pine-boughs, not a twig
dropped to the ground, not a voice
disturbed the frozen stillness. Once,
indeed, my ear caught the faint bowl
of a wolf in the far distance, making
me shudder as I remembered how near
I had been to spending the night
amongst these unpleasant denizens of
a pathless German forest. Tho cry
sounded weird and almost unearthly
in its prolonged wail. Then again all
was silence.
The utter stillness and the desolation had a fascination for me. I had
wrapped a thick rug around me, and
I did not feel tlio keenness of the air.
I leant upon my balcony and looked
forth into the forest. I was as motionless as one of tho myriads of pine-
trees before me. It might have been
ten minutes—it might have been an
hour.
"Merciful Heaven! is there nn deliverance for mo f Ten years!—ten
years!"
Had I scon a spectral apparition I
could hardly have experienced agreater
shock than I did when theso words,
spoken in English in a low and plaintive, but perfectly distinct voice, broke
suddenly upon tho solemnity of the
silence. I started violently, and it is
no exaggeration to Bay that my blood
ran cold within my veins.
The voice seemed to have come from
the very air about ine. I looked right
and left, and could not see a living
soul.
Then once again the final words
were repeated:
"Ten years!—ten yenrR!" and the
voice subsided into a sort of sob.
Then I perceived that the Bounds
came from immediately above my head.
Looking Up, I discovered that upon
the upper storey there was a balcony
similar to my own; and upon reaching
out my head as far as I could, I now
saw a female figure leaning against
the gray wall of the house, She was
dressed in white, hor lung dark hair
streamed down her back, her hands
were clasped before her; she was gazing, " as I had been, into the silent
depths of the forest. The moonlight
shone full upon her face. I could see
her distinctly.
It was Nella, wife of Carl von Errenholt!
But at the very moment that I made
this discovery another thought rushed
into my mind with' an overwhelming
suddenness.
Nella bad spoken! Nella was English! and, oh! wonder of wonders!
Nella was not deaf and dumb!
In one moment I had grasped the
fact that here in this wild, desolate
cattle, some foul treachery, Rome black
mystery of *in and fraud, was at work,
and that Nella was the victim of a
vile and wicked conspiracy. What
was it ?   I spoke to hor.
"Madamo von Errenholt!" I said,
softly.
There was no answer. I waited a
moment, then I spoke again:
"Nella!"
To that name she responded quickly
enough.
I saw her start, look about her quickly, then stoop down over her balcony.
"Who called me!" she whispered.
"It is I—the English stranger who
came here to-night. I heard you
speak; yon are not deaf and dumb, as
they said ?"
"No, no!" she said, in a passionate
denial, pressing hor clenched hands
upon her bnanm, as though to tranquillize her wild excitement.
"And you are my countrywoman—
you are English ?"
"Yes—years ago—ten long years
ago!" fllie wailed.
"Can I beln you 1 Is your husband
cruel to you ?'*
"My husband!" she repeated, wildly.
"I have no husband. Carl von Errenholt is no more my husband than you
are—it is what they tell to everyone
who comes. I hate and loathe him—
he is worse than his father."
■'Then who nnd what are you ?" I
asked, eagerly. "How is it that one
so beautiful and so friendless is in the
power of these men ?"
"Am I beautiful ?" sbo ropeatod
sadly. "Alas! I bnd forgotten it; but
lam friendless! oh, yes! I am very,
very friendless!"
