Nanaimo Growls.
Not long ago it wna stated in
theso columns tliat* nobody in the
provinco felt any particular anxiety
for the construction of tho island
railway except Viotoria. The Nanaimo Free Press confirms this statement, and also'refers to a scheme
whieh, if ever carried out, would
' make Victoria feel sorry for anxiety.
Tho Free Press sayB:
Viotoria is about tho only place on
this Island that seems to be jubilant,
for the building of the Island Railway
■ on the terras agreed upon. And if
Dame Rumor turns out correct, as she
often does when inspired, the present
joy of the Victorians will soon be turned to weeping. The report at present
Is that arrangements are being made
by interested and influential parties to
establish a large and switt steam ferry,
capable of transporting a train of cars
between Burrard Inlot and Nanaimo
or Departure Bay and constructing a
railway to Barclay Sound, and thus
making that point tho actual terminus
of the Canadian Pacific Railway. In
that caso what will become of Esquimau and Viotoria, and of what practical use will be the railway to Esquimau? The action of the mainlauder.
would infer that they were not at all
satisfied with tho Settlement Terms
and we ahould not be surprised if a
strong fight was yet mado against the
lnte# proposed settlement, which has
yet 'to ho ratified by the Dominion
Commons and Senate and tho Provincial Legislature
We do net think there is much
probability of the Barclay Sound
idea ever developing iuto a fact. At
the same time we hnve no hesitation
in asserting that this province has
beon made to pay a pretty penny for
the sake of gratifying Victoria ambition. The opinion is almost universally entertained (outside of Victoria, of course) that the island railway as a commercial enterprise is a
mistake and will never pay. It will
afford accommodation to very few
personH, and accomplish little for tbe
improvement of the country. But
this piece of useles railway is costing
us 2,000,000 acres of provincial
lands and $750,000 caull. Thom is
no doubt whatever thut tbe Mucken
lie government, in 1875, would have
banded over to British Goltiuibi
$750,000 as compensation for broken
promises, and that thia slim would
have been available for any provincial work to which the local government might think proper to apply it.
But the Walkem government indignantly rejected that offer and the
government of Sir John Macdonald
lefused to renew it. It follows that
after refusing an offer wbioh would
have benefited the whole country,
and left the publio lamia on Van.
convcr Island intact, this province is
now forced to accept as compensation
a railway which will he of very little
use to anybody. The people of Viotoria aro undoubtedly icsponsible for
this result, and the mainland has to
be content, with a refund of $340,-
000 of dock money. Some persons
who are either too obtuso to comprehend n simple fact, or too dishonest to admit the truth, continue
to tell us that tho $750,000 could
have been obtained now on the same
conditions on which it wus offered
by Mr. Mackenzie. The correspond-
on™ between tho two governments,
and the result of Mr, DoCoinios'
Ottawa mission prove beyond question tbat auch la not the case. It is
most unwise, therefore, for the people of Victoria to say illnntuied
things about the mainland. We
have juat put up with quit, enough
from tbat quarter, and if Victoria
knows where her true interest, lie
ahe will conduct herself in future
with great respect for the mainland.
Mons. Daubree hu analyzed a' meteorite which fell in the province of
Entre-Rlos, Argentine Republic, and
finds that it contains iron, lime, magnesia, and carbon in an organic form.
Th. laat discovery leads him to hope
that he may some day find orgnnlo ro*
mains in a meteorite. It may ho recollected that Sir William Thompson, in
1871, suggestod th. idea that even
living organic germs may have beon
brought to the earth by meteorites,
and that the present animal and vegetable life of our.planet had its origin
in the germs thus introduced. This
speculation gives a special interest lo
any remains or ether ovideuce tending
to show that meteorites or tha worlds
of which they havo one. formed a part
ever bore living forms.

Scientific Jfttecellaiifi.
A •doiitifie voynj-o round tho world
U to bo uml ui'taken by tho Swedish
frigate Vanidii. The expedition will
be nbtant about eighteen months, nnd
It li to include the Duke ef Gotluud,
King Oscar's youngest sou, and several
Swtduh uvuiti.
The total number of species of
floworing plants in tho world is roughly
estimated by Beuthitm and Hooker to
be 05,620.
A catalogue iB being prepared of the
stars wliich wero observed from the
Paris Obsorvatory during the forty-five
years from 1837 to 1831. The stars to
be included in this list number about
40,000.
At the Paris Observatory Admiral
Mouohez has been experimenting for
somo weeks with a small captive balloon for obtaining records of meteorological phenomena at Borao distance
above the earth. Tho real value nf
tho balloon to soienco has not yet been
determined, as ballooning for scientific
purposes is a' quite new subject of
study.
A composition has beon produced
by Messrs. Dnnkworth and Landers,
of St. Petersburg!), which possesses
tho properties of India rubber, and is
- suitable for most of the purposes for
which that Bubstnuco is used. The
new product isa composed of wood and
coal tor, linseed oil, ossokerit, thoroughly ini:;cd, and heated for a long
time in large vessels.
According to a writer in a Parisian
journal, Tonquin, a province of Anam
in southeastern Asia, possesses a remarkable mineral wealth. The production of its gold mines, this authority states, cun be made to rival that of
Oalifornia and Australia; while its coal
mines are even more important than
the gold mines. Silver, copper and
tin are nlso abundant, and zinc, lead,
iron and bismuth are known.
Deaf-mutes have been taught. to
speak and to understand speech by
noticing the movements of the lips.
It is staled that Mons. Wanerke has
produced photographs showing the form
assumed by tho lips for each sound,
and that these pictures have enabled
inexperienced persons to recognize the
different articulations. Such photo-
graphs ought to be of great value in giving instruction to deaf-mutes.
An Irish physician, Dr. Henry Ma-
caulay, has made tho unique suggestion that the intense boat of the sun in
tropical countries be used aa an agent
for cooling buildings. Ho would use
Mouchot's sun-engine for pumping
cold air into factories, dwellings, etc.,
as in this way tho temperature of the
rooms may be reduced from 100 degrees to 00. This plan is only available whero ico may bo obtained.
In the opinion of Dr. Burg, copper
in tho body exerts a protective influence against infectious diseases. This
view hns received renewed confirmation
in the results of an inquiry concerning
tho denth-rato among copper-workers
during thu last opidemic of typhoid in
Paris. To test his theory that copper
prevents tho development of tho
microbe!* of infectious diseases. Dr.
Burg' proposes studyiim the action of
copper salts upon the microbes cultivated by Mons. Pasteur,     -*
The plan of burying in the earth
animals which havo died of oharbon or
other contagious diseaBO is unsafe, as
tho disease poison may find its way
through the soil nnd reach other creatures. Mons. A hue Girard 1ms experimented with a method of disposing
of sueh dead bodies by dissolving them
in concentrated sulphuric acid. Thu
acid is capable of dissolving more than
two-thirds of its weight of animal matter, and the resulting black, sirupy
liquid may be used to advantage fur
making fertilizers. Tlie acid effectually
destroys all disease germs.
From English statistics extending
ovor thirty-six years, a writer in a
German scientific journal conoludes
that the wheat-crop is mainly determined by the state of the weather in
July and August—tho higher the temperature aud tho smaller the rainfall
in thoso- two months the better the
harvest. Tho best harvest waa that of
1808, with a temperature for the twC
months of 41 Fahrenheit degrees above
the average, and a rainfall of 2.71
inches below'tho average; while the
poorest yield was that of 1800, with a
deficiency of temperature of 4.6 degrees, and an excess of 2.0 inches of
rain.
In a paper in tho Bulletin of the
Paris Ani hropological Society,Mons. G.
Lagnenu has considered the relations
of deaths and births among Catholics,
Protestants and Jews, Ho finds ihe
biri.hu to bo in greatest proportion
among tho Catholics, but tbo death-
rntu is so largo among their children
that they increaso iu population but
slowly. With Protestants tho births
nro fewer, infantile mortality is lowor,
nud increaso is often much greater,
The1 Jews have fewer births thnti either
of iho othor classes, but (heir death-
rato is so low for all ages thnt thoy increaso in numbers moro rapidly thnn
either Catholics or Protestants,    j
For ton or twelvo years a new form
of potato disease has been slowly but
steadily spreading in southwestern
Norway, and \a now reported to ba extending its ravages with increasing
energy. On tho stalk of tho plaut,
which Is the part affected, Herr Auda
has found a fungoid growth, which is
successively white, greenish and black
in color, and which attains the size of
a small bean. The development of the
fungus causes the interior of the stalk to
dry up and disappear, leaving only the
outer shell. Tho fungus is most active
near the close of July or tho beginning
of August, whon wholo fields of potato
plants aro often quickly reduced to the
condition of withered straw.
Photography of tho stars wow forms
nn important .pat ft of tho work dono at
tho Harvard Observatory. A region
of tho heavens fifteen degrees square
is photographed at a single exposure,
stars down to the fifth and sixth magnitudes boing shown; and eighteen of
those pictures may bo taken on a single
plate, forming a map of n section of
the stollar vault ■ ninety degrees long
by- forty-flvo degrees wide. Smaller
stars, down to tho eighth magnitude,
are shown in photographs of smaller
areas. Tlio magnitudes indicated by
the photographs do not always correspond to thoso recorded as tho determinations of oyo observations. This
is due to the effects of different colors
among the stars, A red star, which
may appear vory brilliant to the eye,
produces only a faint impression on
the photographer's plate.

Was Shr Murdered ?—L-wi Baiur-*
day Mr. finggman discovered the body
of a drowned Indian woman in the
north arm of Burrard Inlet, lying in
about 3 foot of water. The body was
afterwards identified as ono of the
wives of Big George, who claims to be
chiof of tho Indians in that region.
Big Goorge was arrested by Constable
Miller and lodged in Granville lockup.
A-coroner's inquest was held upon the
body, but no evidence waa presented
aiymiBt tho chiof. We understand that
Big George is still hold, however, for
further developments. Since marrying this woman he took another wife
and it is believed he wished to rid himself of tho ono who is dead, and that
he drowned hor. Both Big George
and a number of his Indian* went on
a drunk, and it was whito under the
influence of liquor that the drowning
touk place. Big George is desoribed
as a perfect brute whon drunk, ,
Rather Bough.
Not long ago Chiof Justice Sir M,
B. Begbio stated in court that ho wished he was a Chinaman, as he had become ashamed of his own countrymen.
The other day a jury refused to find a
verdict of guilty against Lavin, charged
with having killed Robertson with a
Band-bag, and the learned judge said:
"Gentlomen of the jury, mind, that
is your verdict, not mine. On your,
conscience will rest the stigma of returning such a disgraceful verdict, and
one at variance with the evidence on
which you have sworn to find the guilt
or innocence of the prisoner. Many
repetitions of suoh oonduot as yours
will make trial by jury a horrible farce
and tho city of victoria whioh you inhabit, a nost of immorality and crime,
encouraged by the immunity from the
law which criminals will receive from i
the announcement of such verdicts as
yours. Go, I have nothing more to
lay to you."
Mr. T. Davie horo asked that the
prisoner bo discharged.

CuiLLtwiiACK, Sept. 10.—A heavy
fall of rain, commencing Saturday
noon and finishing this morning, was
welcomed by all. The harvest is
about finished, a little late grain being
out, but the weather this morning is
clear, so all will probably be finished
in two or three days. Mr. W. H.
Burr's steam thresher is doing good
work and giving good satisfaction, our
horses feeling tho benefit as well as
ourselves. They thrashed 05 bushels
of spring wheat in au hour at Mr. H.
Wobb's, who also thrashed 180 bushels of the famous Russian White oats,
being the yield of a pound of- a seed
purchased from James Viok, Rochester, N. Y., in the spring of 1882, and
for which he paid 40 cts. Our board
of works aro very busy with road contracts, and should we get a fine fall we
will have some first-class roads, aa the
work is nearly all grading and gravelling. Contracts to the amount of 91000
for grading and gravelling trunk road
are to be let on Wednesday next.
Mr. Vedder thnuhed 3,150 bushels
in 2f days with the steam thrasher
last week, and has about 17 acres of
barley and wheat together yet to
thrash. Mr. G. Chadsey went to
Nicola and vicinity last week to buy
a band of brood mares. Success to
him, as it is something we need. The
contract for fenoing agricultural
grounds has been let to Groyell Bros.

The new court house nntl gaol waa
finished last Thursday, and on Friday
it waa handed over to the government
by the contractor, Mr, Jno. Calbick.
The building is>22x20, aiyl contains a
court room 12$x20 and 4 cells 0x0
each. It stands about 40 feet back
from tho street, and behind it there is
a yard 20x87 enclosed by a close board
fence 14 feet high. The first occupant
of" tho new building was Big George,
the Indian, who was arrested by Con*,
stable Miller, on suspicion of having
drowned his wife. George is noted
over this part of the country on account of his big feet. When done up
in colored oloth these enormous appendages might easily be mistaken for
canvassed hams. When it became
known that George was going to the
gaol the people of this village manifested a lively curiosity to see what
would be done with the feet, as it waa
commonly believed they could not got
through tho prison door. I am informed, however, that the feat was successfully accomplished and the feet do
not hang out of the door as some peoplo suppose. Mr. Calbick is now erecting a building here for Mr. Chas. Caldwell, foreman at Hastings Mills. It is
2l£x40, nnd two stories high. The
upper fiat, I understand,,is to be fitted
up as a lodge room for the A.O.U.W.;
and tbo lower flat will be rented for a
atoro-or restaurant.

The Maple nidge Meeting.
Editor Columbian.—In response to
a notico calling a meeting of the occupiers aud freeholders of Maple Ridge
municipality, for tho purpose of taking
a vole to dcoido whether the council
should expend tan government appropriation for roads, or it should bo handed
over to be expended in accordance with
the recommendations of the government
surveyor, quite a number of respectable
voters put iu nu appearance at the Maplo
Ridgo school house. The excitement,
which is generally absent where the
ballot is lucd, ran high. Some of the
parties seemed to have forgotten the
principles inculcated in their eivAy
youth, thai little children stiould not
let suoh angry passions rise. Votes of
M3vev.il bona fide occupiers of land we;*e
refused, notwithstanding they were prepared to swear that they occupied and
resided ou the lauds they represented.
I shall not enter upon a discussion rn
to which pavfcy is right and whioh wi-on^j
but may express. the hope that this
money about whioh there has boen so
muoh fuss may bo expended to tiie best;
posbih'fl advantage to the present aiid
tutu -c progress of tho municipality.
When next a vote takes place at Maple
Ridgo it is to be hoped there will not
be suoh another erhtbltion ot animosity
and bitterness.—Yours, 4c.

NEWS FROM AU PART8 OF THE .WORLD.
Rat Poutage, Out., Aug. 22.—This
morning the following as reeve and
councillors were elected under the
Ontario jurisdiction by acclamation-:—
Itoeve—F. Holmes, lumber merchant;
Councillors — W. L. Baker, general
merchant; 0. W. Ohadwick, hardware
merchant; Frank Stubbs, contractor;
A. D, McDonald, baker and confectioner. The meeting was large, enthusiastic, and there was no show of
opposition. Redding and McDonald,
tho Ontario constables, were charged
before the Manitoba Magistrate, Bro-
roton, with the false arrest of Mac-
Master, the Manitoba constable, today. Both were honorably acquitted,
it being proven beyond a doubt that
MaoMastor waa drunk and fighting
when arrested.
St. Johns, N. F., Sept. 3.—Oapt.
Nickers, oii tho schooner Bessie, has
just arrived from the Grand Banks.
He left the fishing ledge twenty-miles
south of Rodger's shoals, and 120 miles
off Cape Spear. Nickeraon describes
passing through a perfect sea of shattered dories and broken booms, spare,
Raffs and other gear of fishing vessels,
No further reliable particulars are yet
to be heard. The. Bessie narrowly
escaped going down with all hands.
She was badly strained and is leaking.
Paris, Sept. 5.—The Chinese legation says that it iis possible that China
has reinforced her troops on the frontier, owing to the treaty imposed on
Annum by France. China being made
the protector of Tonquin, might in that
case now consider that she haa the
right to aend troops to Tonquin. The
legation having received no news of
the treaty of Hue haa not protested
against it.
Bkalin, Sent. 6.—A note ia published here, evidontly from the Chinese
embassy stating that nobody acquainted with the intentions of China con*
sidera that ahe will give her consent to
tho treaty between France and An-
nam. Latest advices from Pekin show
that the Chinese authorities favor war.
Pout Said, Sept. 7.—Quarantine
haa been abolished on the Suez canal,
and traffic resumed as before the cholera epidemic British troops are
returning to Cairo.
Durban, Sept. 7.—A correspondent
juat returned from a tour through the
heart of Zuhiland reports the natives
on a war of mutual extermination.
Helena, Mont., Sept. 7.—Tho Villard train left Livingston this morning
and made the ascent of the Bell range
of mountains in perfect safety. The
trainee were subdivided and three locomotives attached to each. The distance, five miles, is almost a loop, and
the grade is 215 feot to the mile. At
this point the Bozeman tunnel is being
constructed, which will obviate tho
necessity of this difficult and expensive lift.
London, Sept. 7>—A Hongkong
correspondent- writes that the French
claim that thb Hue treaty, and the
settlement of the Tonquin question is
not the true one, and that France
ahould deal with China and not An-
nam. China alone can open the river.
She is willing to nuke it an international waterway if the European
powers and America request her to do
so. This is the only possible solution
of the question at issue, The district
of Hairpong, is still flooded, and all
operations are suspended.
Salt - Lake, Sept. 8.— Possengors

Facile Railway Progr&s.
THE TRACK COMPLETED TO CALCARY.
.A dispatch from the west announces
that ihe track was completed, to the
Bow River crossing on Thursday last.
This connects the line with Calgarry,
and completes the contract entered into
by Langdon, Sheppard & Oo. one year
T the 7th of March tq build 074 miles
road. Langdon, Sheppard & Co.
built during the contract over 45 milea
of aide track so that over 700 miles of
track were built by them. They started at Oak Lako when i,hey first began,
and the rapidity with whioh the work
wob built was acknowledged by railroad
men to bo marvellous. Messrs. Langdon, Sheppard & Co. received for their
work over 94,000,000. The total cost
to tlie 0. P. R. of constructing the line
to Calgarry from Oak Luke, including
rails, ties, etc., was over 910,000,000.
Mr. Langdon was interviewed thia
morning about the work. He said it
hud been done rapidly, but with the
experience in construction the firm
now hud, he believed it could be done
much faster. All the men employed
by his firm and all tho oututs used in
construction have boen taken over by
the North American Railway Contracting Company, which, under tho superintendence of Mr. James Ross, will
cany ou tho work to completion.
Speaking of the construction of tho
road wost of Calgarry through tho
Rocky Mountains, Mr. Langdon said
he would s tako hia, professional reputation that no roan ever saw such a fino
location for any road through a mountain rango. The gradients wero not
high, and tho road could bo built
through the mountains with great
facility.
Mr. Barclay, the acting chief engineer, added that tho gradients in the
mountains are very light. The grading
work is very light and rapid progress
is boing made. The road, which they
-drove up, is cut within 25 mile? of the
summit of the mountains, and is boin*j
pushed forward at tho rr;te o? ooe mile
a day. The line, ho says, h located
now about thirty miles beyond the
summit of tho mountains. When the
work this year is completed there will
be only 280 miles of road to be built
in order to moke connection with the
line at Kamloops, on the Columbia
river.—Winnipeg Sun.
Grounding or the Queen or the

From a passenger interviewed by a
Portland reporter tho following facts
are gleaned:
"Tho ship sailed along with good
weather, and every one on board was
in the best of spirits. The weather
was thick whon they reached the bar,
and the ship dropped anchor about 8
o'clock Tuesday morning, aa it was impossible to see where we were. ■ After
waiting for the fog to rise a few hours,
Gov. Perkins, one of the owners of the
vessel, urged the pilot to go ahead, as
he wanted to get in and thought they
could croso, the fog having raised a little. About 2 o'clock, while somo of
ub wero down to dinner, we felt the
vessel come to a stop and heard the
bell in the engine loom ring. We paid
no attention to this, as we supposed
the fog had sottled down again and tho
vessel had come to anchor. Presently
wo heard a gun fire from the ship, and
I knew that we were in danger. I
went on deok and learned that the ship
was on tho bar. For a time I was
dazed. Wo could not - seo anything
but water, and it was impossible to tell
where we were, except that we were
stuck on the bar. Some of the passengers realized the danger;' others did
not, while others yot did not appear to
care. It was plain to be seen that fear
was working on the minds of not a
few, but Oapt. Alexander went about
flving words of encouragement to all.
to advised everybody to keep cool and
with the assistance of tho less excited
managed to keep down fear and a
panic, and to the credit of tho passengers it Is said that they did not show
any signs of excitement. I knew very
well tnat chances were against us, but
I kept my mind about me and watched
the proceedings. After the gun bad
been fired for some time, turn came to
us and the captain ordered the passengers to sot into them. The matter
was handled admirably, Thore waa no
rush, and the people were convinced
that they had plenty of time to transfer, A Mrs. Tony waa the firat to be
lowered into the lifeboat, but aa she
reached the boat her leg waa caught
between it and the ship and badly
mangled, She was drawn up and a
physician aboard set the limb. Several
tugs came but, during the afternoon
and I remained. until the laat. The
captain compelled all the passengers to
go ashore, many of them wanted to
remain and take the chances with the
ship. Gov. Perkins staid aboard. Tho
ship listed and sottled in ton feet of
water. When wo csme away it looked
os if the fate of the ship was sealed.
Tlie only thing in ita favor was the
smooth water.
A lady having a small baby was
lowered into a boat and her baby sent
down in a box after her. Some one
sang out, "Look out for that baby,"
upon which the mother, thinking her
child -in danger, fainted. The Oregon
crossed tho oar yesterday in Bight of
tho Queen, but she oould render no
assistance. About 800 tons of freight
had to be thrown overboard, and the
Queen then floated. She will come up
to-day.

road and trail, and if F. Stewart's tender bo satisfactory to award him the
contract for construction ol same; if not
satisfactory so let the work* by publio

desirable and absolutely necessary that
tho corduroy on Semiahmoo road across
Mud Bay fiats should bo gravelled, (in
the interests of tbe government as well as
the municipality), otherwise in a very
short time it will be necessary to relay
tho whole flat with new corduroy, which
cost when first done some $1000, the
Eresent corduroy having, in many places,
ecome so decayed, that when the wet
weather sets in the road will become
totally impassable, therefore the Clerk is
hereby instructed to write to tiio Chief
Commissioner of Lands k Works, the
Provincial Secretary and the District
representative, and request that an appropriation of $!200 be made for this
purpose, this being the estimated cost of
tho gravellhg; also to request an appropriation of *400, for necessary repairs
to damage caused by fins, ftc, on the
Yale trunk road withm the limits of this
municipality, said road being In many
places' almost impassable. The council

"Nellie, welcome, thrice welcome
to Hurst Hall. It is a happy day for
me that sees you and Dudley here."
And I look up and smile, and say
thanks, and feel strange; and yet it is
tho old face, tbe old voice, the same
kind eyes of seven years ago.
"Nellie, you say nothing, but yonr
•yes are speaking great things. Do
you fully recognize the pale-faced boy
you were so kind to in the dear old
langByne,"
"It is just that," I said, "that surprises me so, that you are so little
changed, so muoh younger than I
thought to find vou."
"80 muoh snorter," with a merry
laugh;' "that is what you meant to
say. No, I am not much grown; I'm
•till half a head lose than Dudley.
Look!" and he made him stand beside
him to prove his words. "You see I
shall never be a fine man like my
father.   He was six feet two."
No, he was not a fine man, so slight,
almost fragile of build, and with the
pale boyish face, beardless save for the
silken down on the upper lip. It was
not a handsome face either; but there
waa latent power, if I mistook not, in
the quiet keen eyes and the somewhat
curling Iin; but what struck me most
WU the lofty carriage of the head,
a,- tty  „
tnd the high-bred nonchalant ((race
of bearing, that would have distinguished him among a thousand, and
whioh contrasted strangely with the
air of extreme youth.
"You see, Dudley can quite look
down on me," he continued; "but
talking of change, you are just yourself, Nellie, not a day older, though
vour black dross makes you look pale.
You have stood still as well as I."
"And Dudley!"
It was pleasant to see the bright
glance exchanged between them, and
the arm flung naturally in the old way
over Dudley s shoulder.
"He! eh, you had better not ask
me, I am so jealous of his extra inches.
Well, he hu the same grave look that
made us surname him Seneca In the
school room; how's the Bruce?"
"Flourishing, he's a fine fellow if
you like."
"I suppose so. Well, I'm a pretty
sort of host, forgetting one of my
guests: where is the little River?"
"I left her in the nursery, you
must not see her yot till Bho is dressed,
or Nellie will be in a sad state."
"She shall come down to dessert
then; and now I must dress, ur Morrison will bj announe'rj dinner, and
ss ray tired travelers must go neat to
famish, I will make good speed; adieu,
au retoir."
As he passed I saw his quiet glance
scan the simple mourning dress I
could not throw off, but I knew no
apology waa needed, and let it pass
without comment.
Dudley sat down and wrote off 11
business note, aud before ho had finished Herwald re-entered, dressed in
black indeed, but not in the usual
evening dress that Dudley had told!
me he always wore even when alone; his
extreme courtesy forbade it.
"Dinner is served," said the butler,
flinging open the library door in approved fashion.
"Morrison."
"Yes, sir."
'  * 'Turn Leo and Max out for a run in
the yard, and let Sprite have her
cream."
"You see," he added, offering mo
his arm, "my dumb family must be
cared for, and Sprite is so little, she
often gets forgotten. What do yon
think of the wee impish thing?"
"I admire the deerhounds more." (
"You are right, they nn noble animals, I call them my body-guard, and
seldom go anywhere without them.
Max hu especially done me good service. Dudley, tako this seat opposite
me; it is pleasant to think my table
will be less dreary to-day."
Dudley's face, seeu through the vista of epergnes and flowers, wu radiant
aa he answered—
"We must see you in the Sunnyside
dining-room before we can quite say
it is like old times."
"Ah, if you knew how I have
dreamed of tho old place and of the
happy boyish days, what a long blank
there hu been iu our intercourse, und
yet I feel we are tho same. One
thing I am resolved upon, invited or
uninvited, I will spend my Christmas
with you—may I, Nellie?1'
"May youl oh, Herwald."
"I will then, and though it may rot
be the merry, thoughtless Christmas
of old, we will make the yule log burn
brightly in spite of all—what say you,
Newer
"That I am doubtful whether Sunnyside will please after Bunt Hall."
Herwald replied by au unanswerable ourl of tno Up; aud then by degrees we fell into a long interesting
talk of the olden timo, and all seemed
to vie with each other in recalling
ludicrous anecdotes and mirthful exploits, till we forgot the somewhat
repressing grandeur of Morrison and
his white-gloved underling Simpson,
and were quite at home and at our
eau. True, it wu pleannter when,
the cloth being removed and the fruit
•placed on the shining mahogany, Morrison, on a sign from his master, left
the room,
"And now for tbe little 'River,' may
' I fetch her?"
"You!" I said, dubiously; "I fear
our wee lady will hardly condescend
to let you. Dudley had hotter be
your deputy: I think he hu the art
of charming her wayward mood*)."
Dudley van off pleased with the
commission, and soon we heard the
cantering steps of her "geogee," and
above them the sweet babbling voice,
at the sound of which Herwald fairly
started.
"A child's voice in the old hall! can
such a thing be possible.?"
I glanced proudly nt the opening
' door in anticipation of the new white
dress and lilac ribbons that wo hnd
decided she should wear; but to my
disappointment nothing was to be
seen out a blue flannel petticoat and a
well-muffled head. It was one of
baby's pretty tricks thus to veil herself when shy, and in absence of
pinafores had used the first thing that
came to hand. Hence the unsightly
result.
Herwald burst out laughing. "Ob,
naughty baby: Dudley, put down her
drew, please," but the chubby arras
held It tightly; and it wu a confused
little bundle that wu deposited in
ths high chair.
"Oh, I am so ashamed, just when
I want h«r to he good—Dudley, what
•hall we dor' But Dudley and
Herwald did nothing but laugh, and
1 was about to carry her out of the
' room, when Herwald stopped me.
"This is more amusing than I anti
eipated; leave the baihful young lady
alone, I'll bring her round;" then iu
» plMsant voice, and fixing his eyes
on the wiling: "When I tave little
girla to stay with me, I always have
them down to dessert, and let them
have, a green and gold plato with a
bright crimson peach on it, and a silver knife and fork to cut it up with."
(Groat excitement under the white
frock.) "And," continued Herwald,
"sometimes these little girls have a
glass of sweet wine, and some cakes
with great almonds in them;" then
very softly, "Wouldn't Rill like to
come and: sit on my knee and have
these nice things; won't she come to
—whatever shall I call myself? Uncle
Herry, yes, to Uncle Herry?"
Perhaps it was the cakes, perhaps
it wu the winning voice, but the
crumpled dress wu thrown down, and
there, camo to view the dimpled shoulders and little head rippling over with
Ha tight golden curls.
Five minutes more, and she wu
quietly seated on Herwald's knee cutting up he peach, and patiently enduring his kisses, while her rosy lips
were continually making demands on
Uncle Herry.
"There is one question, Herwald, I
have been wanting to uk you."
"What is thatr
"I want to know whether it be to
accident or thoughtful design that I
may attribute my rosebud of a room?"
"That is a very needless question
for the whilo moss-rose to uk," wu
Herwald's laughing answer, u he
jumped up from the table. "Shall
we go into the garden?" and then I
knew from his using the old name
that Keith and he had called me, that
it wu no accident nt all. "I have
never seen such lovely 'grounds,'' I
said some minutes afterwards, u we
stood on tbe terrace and watched tho
utting   behind  the shrubbory
trees,
'These! oh, they are nothing; I
going to show you my 'wild garden; I detest these trimly laid out
lawns and paths; I like a 'sweet neglect;' I will show you what I mean;
come this way." We threaded the
mazes of the shrubbery walks, which
were so thickly and carefully planted
u to resemble a miniature wood, and
from this we came out ou the "wild
garden." Wild it certainly wu,
and negligently beautiful, according
to Herwald's motto, that "beauty
leut adorned is adorned the most
Through the grounds, broken up and
diversified by clumps of trees, there
flowed a beautiful trout-stream, abundantly furnished with trout; across
this were stepping-stones, picturesque,
but not aa dangerous u those by the
manse; whioh led to a tangled thicket,
from which we emerged on a smooth
green bowling-alley, at the end of
which wa» a Gothic summer-house
with painted windows and n passionflower covering its porch. Beyond
wu a pebbly path leading to the fernery where, amid broken rocks, cool
fountains and shady trees, flourished
the rarest specimens that Herwald
could procure; this wu the prettiest
nook of tho whole garden; and he
pointed out to us a mosey bank where
he loved to lie and read.
"It is cool here on the hottest summer day, and when I am restless and
perturbed, au hour's retreat with
Max aud Leo to my fernery Bets mo
right for the rest of the day; I am
glad you like it, Nellie."
And then we went through a copse,
and into a dell, from whioh we came
out on the rabbit warren, and so into
the park nnd home. We paused for
a moment to admire the new-born
moon just trembling on the deep blue
of tbe sky; then Herwald suddenly
said to me, for Dudley had run in
with Rill, who waB sleepy—"What a
careless fellow I am, to be all these
hours and not o*k aflor my old friend,
Keith."
I hnd not expected the question,
and a whole world of foolish color
rushed up into my faco, u I stammered nut something about his being
well. Was it fancy, or did I see a
strange look in Herwald's eyes, and a
sudden compressed movement of the
lips? No, it must have been fancy;
for those clear bright eyes were looking
tenderly nt ine. 1
"Ib it so? I am glad of it. God.
bless you, Nellie!" I wanted to un-1
deceive him, but could not, for Dudley came tick, and we all paced up
aud down the terrace talking, till the
stars came out aud Iho air grew dark
and chill.
"You are shivering, Nellie; come,
let us _o in, rad you shall make tea
for ua," He led i !to way through an
opon window to what appeared to be
a dark room, but nt lnat I discovered
we were in the great drawing-room,
and tbat there wu a blase of light at
the far end. In the midst of a nest
of couches and ol tomans there was
set out a pretty little lea-table with
i.ilver bronchos filled with wax candles,
hissing silver urn and costly Sevres
service; but save for lhe oasis of light
the room wu buried in obscurity.
"It is a strange, idea of initio, this
Bsnii-illumination; but when the great
chandelier is lighted there is such a
blaze aud glare—no shadow, no dark
corners, 110 'dim religious light;' do
you object to it?"
"Far from it, it is lil:e a bright picture with a dark 'onckvound; it is just
the place for irhosi: stories."
"No; no ghost stories in the summer; wo want lhe fire a*-*d the cirtk-
ling logs for thom. ACter tea I will
show you what sounds belter thnn a
spectral tnle on such an evening u
this." When tea wns finished Herwald disappeared, p.ml a few hii.iu-.es
afterwards we heard n sou wc.ilin?
melody Hint gv-pw tvadu.'.Uy louder aud
fuller, and p-wsenlly the deep sonorous
notes of an oram swelled through the
whole room, Tbe elect wns magical,
glorious, now it seemed to sigh and
sob in low tearful symphony, till it
wrung tho heart lo heat* ii, and then
died off in a pho-uive hw.ii. I wu
for tho time spellbound, till I saw
Dudley cover his face with his hands;
then carefully ond pjy-i-uUy I groped
my way through the visuis of tables
and conches, till I came to Herwald
sitting with upturned face, his hands
wandering mechanically over tbe notes.
I touched him. "Something leu ud,
less touching, ple:se; it is tho first
timo he tins hoard mimic except nt
church.' A wordless v_h a-iswered
me; nnd without 1-rw.kin-j; off lhe
melody, it suddenly grow louder and
louder, nnd sonred triumphantly like a
conquering march, till in a perfect
storm it wavered and broke off in
silence. We did not go into tho
drawing-room, but stood iu the bay-
window till Dudley joined us of his
own accord, which he did nfter a
whilo; thon Herwald said, "I ant
going to dismiss you, Nellie; you
mult repair the effects bf a long journey by a restful night, Dudley 1
know will keep me company awhile in
the Itbnuy." I knew they wanted to
talk more fully together, and so bade
them good-night, and retired.
