L WcflnrMiliiy Morning, Jiuiitm-y as,
Emigration and Immigration.
Thero is evnry prospeot of a very
I large emigration from  the mother
country to Canada during next sum-
I met*.    Amongst the various factors
contributing to this result the tour
of tlit* Marquis of Lome through the
' North-West and his subsequent visit
I to tin Old Country will not he the
[least.    A recant cablegram to the
Itf/ofie announces a new movement in
■this direction.    It states in effect
[that the Archbishop of Canterbury
f has issued a letter to the clergymen
I of the  Church of England on the
j subject of emigration.   The clerical
■ societies are arranging for a series of
E handbooks containing information
I with regard to the principal colonies,
j Those relating to Canada will bo
I ready in a few days. If tho Church
liin Canada co-operates with its breth-
I ron," much good must accrue to tho
1 Dominion. The London office of the
| Canadian Government is in receipt
I of a large number of enquiries for
f information respecting Canada. It
[adds that there is every prospect of
[a large and valuable emigration to
I Canada* setting iu during the present
lyear. As a province of the Domin-
lion, British Columbia 1ms a general
E interest in tlie subject. But there is
la sense in which wo have a special
rinterest. Two decades of waiting for
1 population without any appreciable
[result should convince overy think
I ing person that it is not to the sea
[Columbia must look for population.
I It was expected that the inauguration
lof our large railway works would
[have been the signal for a stamjtede
r of British subjects scattered through-
I out United States possessions ou the
I Pacific slope, many of whom wore
[supposed to bo longing to return to
[the old flag; hut these expectations
[ have, to a very great extent at least,
I been disappointed. More than ever
[we are convinced that no great ao
I cession need be expected to the pop-
I illation of the province until such
Itime as it can come overland through
■ Canadian territory; and that can
■only be expected as the result of tlm
Ifilling up of tho great North-west
■and the creation of facile commuui-
Ication between it and our own province. Looking at the mutter from
hbhis point of view, British Columbia
mist watch with special interest
raver j movement having for its object
■the filling up of the regions beyond
plw Ilocky Mountain ujHlTtt uttaira-
ble class of^ijojifdation, as it is from
Kne^am'imuuitics created tfver there
khat we must expect chiefly to people
pur own waiting acres. It is with
[that view, too, that we look with so
(much anxiety for the completion of
fche Canadian Pacific Railway.
Canada's Northwest
Senator Back, of the United
[States, has been paying a visit to
lour great Northwest, and he has the
'courage to tell hia countrymen some
unpalatable truths about it and pos-
laibilities connected with it. He
|says :
I went to Winnipeg last summer,
land there saw a thriving city of 15,000
■people, with a railroad about finished
Ito Lake Superior. It was being pushed
Irith great energy and abundant means
■west to the Pacific Ocean, to roach the
■trade of Australia, China, Japan and
■the Indies on English soil, with cheap
[ships ready to furnish free goods for
[transportation over this continent to
■.Europe, I went west of Winnipeg
■nearly t*t\o hundred miles on that road
»nd saw thousands and thousands of
_ tores of wheat, clearing forty bushels
Ito thi acre, weighing sixty-three and
Jixty-five pounds to the bushel, and
was assured on undoubted authority
Uiat on Peace River, 1,200 miles north-
treat of where I was, wheat was being
Iiroduced in immense quantity equal
lo the bust I saw in Winnipeg, while
great herds of cattle wero being' fed,
•rithout cost, on as line grassy land us
I lit world affords. Iu short, between
j)iir northwest lino of 41)° and 54° 40'
■General Cass' fighting point), there is
1 country owned by England with
greater grain and stock-growing capacity than all the lauds on the Baltic,
Iho Black Sea and the Mediterranean
fcombined. The laud laws of Canada
Ire now as liberal as ours as to tho
ftomestead preemption and free claims.
Tcople are crowding there rapidly and

towns are springing up as if by magic.
Their great railway will reach tlie Pacific at the grand harbor of Pugst
•Sound before our Northern Pacific
will, and it will be extended eastward
promptly to Montreal. The distance
to Liverpool will be 600 miles shorter
than any American line can get the
wheat of Dakota there. The best
steel rails are being placed on the
road, 100 tons to the mile, at 856 per
ton, while nn our parallel line of the
Northern Pacific like rails (protected)
cost about $70—81,400 a mile in rails
alone in favor of tho Canada-rat-ilk*.
American protectionists not only tell
English statesmen, but denounce all of
ub who do not urge that policy, that it
is their duty to protect Canadian products against- American competition in
England. I assert, without fear of
successful contradiction, that if England takes tlieir advice, and, in order
to have "fair, trade" and protect home
industries, shall impose a tariff tax of
ten or twenty cantB por bushel upon
American wheat snd other grains, allowing Canadian wheat and other products to enter hor ports free, she can
bankrupt tho farmers of our Northwest. She can, by a like discrimina
tion as to beef, pork, butter, cheese
and other farm products, cripple, if
not ruin, our farmers all over the
country, because it is too apparent to
need argument that, with our vast
railroad svstem and the agricultural
lauds dereluped by it, our own penplu
cannot consume what our farmers produce. France and Germany are moving rapidly in the direction urged by
Ameiioati protectionists, and there is
building up a party in England which
is pressing warmly tho same views as
are held by American protectionists.
The lauded ariitocrncy of England is
at the back of this party, and in thoir
greed, the advocates ot this policy may
yet succeed in overthrowing and destroying the agricultural interests and
prosperity of tlieir country* No nation
can find fault with even a high revenue
tariff at our Custom Houses. We havo
come out of a great civil war; we are
burdenod with an enormous debt
which wo are struggling to pay. That
effort commends itself to all nations
and they do not seek to retaliate because uf restrictions on their commerce
imposed by us to obtain money to sustain our eroded and develop our resources; but when they see a numerous and influential body of men maintaining a policy of actual protection
and restriction merely to enrich a class
of men at home, thoy may well pursue
the siune policy, and justify it by the
position maintained here.

Unavailing Prayer.
A petition praying for a resilient
Judge has been very generally
signed in this community within the
past few duys. Tlie people may
pray till they are black in the face.
What care the Government I What
care the Judges'I The three Judges
ami the Premior have been wrangling for the last teiwluys over the
important question as to whether
the former are federal or provincial
officers. Their conduct for some
time past would lead one to conclude that thoy were neither—that
they wore above and independent of
both. Between the Premier's bad
laws and the apparent determination
of tho Judges to stick to Victoria,
the country is left in a lamentable
plight iu so far as the administration
of justice is concerned. County
Court was to have been held here in
December; but, through the attorney-genera l's blundering, the assizes
were held the same week, and the
inferior court had to give way. It
was to have been held last week,
but was again postponed in order
that the important ami dignified controversy- between the Judges and
the attorney-general should not be
interrupted. Unless something else
should intervene, it may reasonably
be expected to be held to-day. But
even if County Court were hold
regularly every month, that does not.
meet the wants of the community.
There "are constantly arising cases
involving legal processes wliich cannot be earned out without a Judge,
and the consequence is that suitors
and witnesses must make an expensive journey to Victoria in order
to hunt up a Judge. But tho Judge
will tell us that it isi-ctter so—that
a Judge should not enjoy even nodding acquaintance with those amongst
whom he is called to administer.*justice; What about Victoria, then,
with three Judges huddled together
in it] But seriously, this matter
ought to bo brought before the federal authorities in a way that will
secure practical action. Should it
bo found that the present Judges
would really prefer resignation to
attention to duties which would
necessitate absence from Victoria,
why we suppose "there are just as
good fish in the sea as ever came out
of it." It appears to us that there
is altogether too much consideration
for tlie esprit de corps and personal
comfort and convenience of the
Judges and tlie Ministers, and too
littlo for the people by and for whom
they exist. The public interest
should be the paramount, governing consideration, to which personal
interests should ever yield. But
here we have three Judges und
threo Ministers, every one Victorians
—altogether too, too, too Victorian
—and it is like drawing teeth to get
any one of them to leave home
oven for the most important duties.
Editorial Notes.
It is earnestly to be hoped that the
Dominion Government may seo its
way clear to adopt such measures in
connection with tho railway contract
about to be given out for the portion
of the lino between this city and
Emory as will at least operate as a dia-
couragoment to tho employment of
Chinesb labor thereon, Although any
restriction of the naturo indicated
might enhance the cost of labor in the
first instance, wo feel confident that
the Dominion would gain by it in the
long run and in the higher souse, by
causing the railway expenditures to
contribute the more largely towards
the settling up and development of the
surpassingly rich agricultural lands on
the Lower Fraser. Indeed there can
be little doubt that the result of tho
employment of none but free white
labor upon theso works would be more
satisfactory even to the contractors
themselves.
enter into the change is very problematical at tho present time. That a
judiciously arranged basis, enabling a
friendly interchange of commodities,
would prove advantageous toboth countries goes without talking, and that
such an arrangement has not been
come to long ago must bo attributed,
in part at least, to shortsighted jealousy—chiefly existing to tho south of
tho 49th parallel of latitude.
Tho Judicature Act was tho solitary
exception, tho one redeeming featuro
which relieved the monotony of Walk-
em's bad law-making. Lot all the rest
go. Lot tho Judges knock tho bottoms out of them. This one brings
glory enough to make up for all. Does
it? Thoro would appear to bo a fair
prospect of its turning out tho worst
of a b-id lot. Constitutionally and
consequentially it threatens to work
no ond of confusion aud mischief. The
Attorney-General pleads for it as for
an only child, but all tho Judges sooni
to bo perfectly convinced that the Act
aud all the machinery for working it
must be kicked out of Court—consigned to that limbo where all Walk-
em's laws go. It would be interesting
to know how much Columbia has lost
through the present Attorney-General's
bungling in law and oemont—in refusing to treat with Edgar and in fighting
Canada. Wo verily believe, could it
all be reduced to figures, it would foot
up more than two years' revenue.
Walltem lias truly been a dear littlo
premier for British Columbia.
Thero is every probability of the
customs tariff of the United. States
being handed over to a commission
for revision, and it is not at all improbable that the revision will tend
in the direction of lighter duties. Tho
present tariff ia protective ill design;
but had it not boon for the war, which
rendered a largo income necessary, the
rates would never have boen put as
high as they are. The conditions
calling for extreme rates having, to a
great extent disappeared, tho way is
open for reduction, and it seems likely
that a material reduction may be the
result of revision. Whether or not
reciprocity  with   Canada will at all

of them it must come, and to
which one we care not, for we
are sure good times are coming anyway, and have therefore made great preparation
for enlarging our business, for
at the present time we are
doing a larger business ihan
we have ever done before, and
Relieving that "nothing succeeds like success" we shall
make greater efforts to secure
our share of business in the
coming year. Our present
premises are not large enough
and we intend extending
them shortly. Wo have during the past year opened a
Dress-making and Millinery Department,
the success of wliich has exceeded our expectations.
We have on order direct
from London,'a splendid line,
in fashionable Mijlinery,
Flowers, Feathers, Dress
Trimmings, &c, and all the

&c, and have done onr utmost to secure a stock that
will surpass anything seen before in this City,
All orders entrusted to us
in this department, will be
filled with despatch and our
prices will be as low as good
work will permit.
In staple and Fancy Dry
Goods, we have a good stock,
and for the spring trade Ave

several London Houses.

From Yals.—•'1'ho steamer lieliauce,
Capt. Insley, returned from Yale nnd
way-pnrt-i un Monday evening, bringing 3!l passengers, 14 head of cattle,
and a considerable quantity uf freight.
Amongst the passengers was H. .1.
Cambie, Esq., of tho C. P. K. S. The
water is very, low and freight had to
be lightered over Murderer's Bar on
tho way up.
Oiiiniwk is Australia.—Less than
a year ago the Australians were complaining of the influx of Chinese.
Lord Augustus Loffcus, Governor of
New South" Wales, in cloning Parliament' recently, said that the law restricting Chinese immigration had
"attained its object without injustice
to tho Chinese residents, and without
prejudice to the commercial interests
of tho Colony."
St. Ann's Convent. — To-mormw
evening, at the Skating Rink in this
city, will bo held a musioial concert,
for tho benefit of the Sisters of St.
Ann. Judging from the amount of
musical talent secured and the completeness of tho arrangements, we foul
confident that a rich treat is iu store
for those who may go. The admission
foe is only 50 cts. and reserved seats
can be secured at tho Rink between
the hours of 12 and 4 to-day, without
any extra charge.
"Vindex.'*—We must decline publication, Whilo aware of all tho disgusting details of the case rufored to,
no notice was taken of it for reasona
which at least commend thwnselve* to
our own judgment. Wo havo no intention uf "covering up social evils,'1
believing with you that such a course
"only tends to their ranker growth."
And yet there are occasions when reticence is justifiable, and we conceive
the caBo; in the Police Court to which
your communication moro immediately
refers to be one of them; but yon
may dismiss from your mind the idea
that consideration for the culprit was
our mntivo for silence. It was con-'
sideratioh 'for tho innocent,
The Funeral.—Tlie remains of J.
K. ' Locklmrt, wno died at Moodville
on Sunday last, were brought over to
this city yesterday,' accompanied by
four coachos filled with Borrowing
friends. Tho body was taken to tho
Masonic Lodge, and from thenco to
the cemetery, followed by a large number of citizens in addition to those
from the Inlet, making altogether a
large cortege. Tho funeral was con-
dncted with Masonic honors, deceased
having been a member of that order.
Police Maoistiute.—Having long
advocated the appointment of a Police
Magistrate for this city, wo havo now
the satisfaction of congratulating the
community upon, tho, selection which
has just boen mado. Mr. Bole's legal
training and lung experience in the
Police Court eminently qualify him
for tho position, and we think tho corporation fortunate in being able to
command his services. We take it for
granted, however, that the appoint-,
rnent involves no charge upon the city
revenue!
Through the Deep at Railway
Spekd.—A scheme is in course of development in New York to put on ft
line of steamers between that port and
Millford Haven, taking possongers
from the former place oh Monday and
setting them down iu London on Saturday. These swift .vessels will cost
from a million tu a million and a quarter each. T'hoy will bo for express aud
first class passengers only, and are in
tended to bo to the ocean what the
railway fast express train and Pullman
cars are to the land travel,

The Oppressed Israelites.— The
London Observer says it is understood
the archbishop of Canterbury^ Cardinal Manning, Earl of Shaftesbury,
Dean Bradley and Canons Lyndon
and Farrar are in communication with
each other on tho scheme for organizing a conference or committee wijh
a view of calling public meetings
throughout the country tu raise funds
for tlio relief of hotuuless Jewish families in Russia and facilitate their immigration. A prominent Israelite has
volunteered to" head the subscription
list with £10,000 and considers £1,-
000,000 to bo necessary to carry out
the project.
NluoLA.—On the 10th January a
most promising *■ lecture course was
begun at tho Church in Nicola Valley.
Rev. Mr. Chappcll occupied tho chair.
Tho lecturer was John Clapporton,
Esq. For about an hour ho held the
audience iu growing hit crest with'a
narrative uf tlie trials and 'success of
Golnmbus, so that when theclosocame
all regretted that it was done. After
the lecture, Mr. Gillie recited with
very good effect "T/hufato nf M.icGre-
gor." A vote of ttianks, moved by
Mr, Howes and seconded by Mr, Ar-
initagu, was presented to the lecturer.
The attendance was unexpectedly large
—Quilshannoiis Nowiaesean, Forks of
Coldwafcr, and from the solitary cabins of the Mountains. Receipts,
$20.50, to go towards purchasing an
organ for the Church. This opening
of the course may ho voted a decided
success.
Coastino.—For somo days tho boys
in this city havo been having lively
sport with thoir coasting sleds un
Mary street hill. Of course there
have been lots of "spills,'' and one
cannot help wondering that there have
been no serious accidents. On Satur-
•day--morning some of tho. sleds ran
into Dr. Trew's fenceTrim Dr. Mclmioa'
fence, doing cousiduraulo damage to
tho fences, but strange to say, none to
the coasters. Fence owners object to
this sort of thing. The public generally havo been willing to submit to
considerable inconvenience, in order
that tho boys may enjoy their sport;
but such utter rucklessuess as has
recently been displayed by the coasters, or sumo of them, should be checked
by tho puliee. The danger of serious
accident to tho boys themselves constitutes sufficient ground for placing
some degree of restraint upon these
proceedings,	
Siill Tin*) Come.
Now subscriptions to the British
Columbian are coming iu from'tho

evidence that our efforts to give thu

The City Council Proceedings
There was, we arc informed, a very
large audience at the Council Chamber on Monday evening, aud wo aro
told that the proceedings, as a whole,
wero not of a character to impress the
auditory with the idea that our civic
legislature is very well v.p iu parliamentary practices. Cue who was present and "took notes" has been kind
enough to send to tho Columman a description id tho proceedings, but wo
cannot see that any good end Would bo
attained hy its publication. Looking
at the minutes, it would apponr to
have been the intention to rescind a resolution passed at tho previous meeting,
directing tlio Mayor in the matter of
certain licenses. We cannot say that
the rescinding of tlaxt resolution would
bo opon to objection. However well
meant, wo incline to tho opinion that
it was a mistake, arising from misapprehension as tu the Mayor's duties
and powers as Police Magistrate. If,
however, it wus the intention of tho
Council to rescind the resolution in
question, there has, we think, been a
failure to do so. The only resolution
touching tho point was ono for recoil
siderathm Ou that tho Council went
into committee of the'whole. The
committee rose, and the chairman reported to the Council the following
resolution:—
"That this Council simply take no
action whatever in tho matter of Ei-
censos."
\n order tu give effect lo this resolution the Council ought to have adopted
tho report of the committee; but it
appears that they did nothing, mado
no disposition of it whatever; so that
it can be of no force or effect, But
not only is tho above quoted resolution
innocuous. The resolution which it
was intended to rescind is still alive
and iu force as much as ever it wa.i.
To reconsider and to rescind are two
different matters, and there appears tu
havo been no motion to rescind. Tho
whole thing would seem to bo in a
"glorious muddle."

The .Marquis of Lome.
Since his return to England the
Marquis of Lome has greatly pleased
those who know Mm. His sojourn in
Canada appears to have impioved him
considerably both in bearing aud as a
public speaker. Miss Olive Logan, tho
sprightly American correspondent in
London, recently wrote of his appear-
anon as nn after dinner speaker:—"The
young Sctch noble has greatly changed
since he luft t liesu shores to assume.the
vice-royalty of the domain to the north
of us. His bearing nt that time was
that of a shy, aristocratic, almost frigid youthful noble, whose only conception of a fine manlier in an essentially
cold and iininipassioncdune. Now, pa
my word, he seems like an American
'of ours.' He is jovial, hearty, oil'
hand—I bad almost written slap-dash.
Tho Princess seemed to take the greatest pride iu bis success as a speaker,
and gave him many loving smiles of
approval as be expatiated on tlie evils
ofsmoko."
Absolutely Noiseless.
What a pleasure ft Is to have a silent-
running sewing machine iu tho bouse
when the baby is asleep. The light-
running Wanner C is simple, silent, swift,
strong and sure, compact, capacious, convenient aud novel,—a model of perfection
in its mechanism; a model of simplicity
iu principle, a model of superiority in
workmanship, a model of beauty iu design aud finish, a model uf all the cardinal
virtues of a thoroughly first-class machine. Remember these expressions—
light-running and noiseless.
In consequence of the patents on old

WITHOUT KNOWING IT.
(Concluded.)
" Yon areangry! You think me mean!"
"No, Cora, only *« thought I whs
mean! You fancied I would buy you
with four hundred pounds—buy your
body, that is, and call it wife, to ait
beside my hearth and eall mo husband
with its human voice, whilo the soul
was far away in dreamland seeking an
impossible hero! Look up, Cora!
don't cry!''—his voice was very soft
nnd gentle now—"lam thirty-seven;
you are eighteen—too young to giv«
your love, except to a gallant youth
of twenty-two! I shall leave you my
address. When he comes your way,
and asks you to be his bride, let me
know, and I will send you a wedding-
present!" and then he stopped back
out of tho summer-house, raised his
hat, and was gone.
Cora felt sure of the four hundred
pounds. She was free to wait for the
beautiful fairy prince of twenty-two
summers to come that way. She was
not bound to give duty and obedience
whore sho could not give love; but
yet, for all that, it seemed to hor that
a grave Had opened at her feet, and
that all her earthly happiness was
auddenly cast into it, while tho brightness and beauty of the world seemed
blotted out forever.
Cora sought out her father, and told
him everything.
"What, a good, noble fellow!" was
his first exclamation; and then came
doubts and misgivings. "Suppose he
should be a' revengeful traitor, angry
at not winning Cora's love? suppose
he wrote to Mr. Chester, who owned
the mills, and told him that thb manager was a, cheat? suppose "
But (DoH did not join in these fears.;
sho was not a bit astonished when tho
post brought the cheque ttie next
afternoon, signed in Mr, Wood's name;
there was also a card, with an address
printod oft it—"Mr. C. Wood, Pvin-
tanier, near Lausanne, Switzerland."
"Abt-then he hat gone to Switzerland; he must he richer than he says,"
thought Mr. Rodwell; but he said
nothing to Cora.
The money was paid into the concern, and everything went on smoothly.
Cora was no longer troubled by the
importunities of a lover nineteen years
older than, herself. Her father was
free to save hit money to pay off the
debt to the absent louder as he liked,
for Mr, Wood had returned tho acknowledgment which Mr. Rodwoll
eent him, saying that he never would
rob Miss Rodwell of her dowry, and
that Mr. Rodwoll was to save up four
hundred pounds as quickly as ho could,
and give it to hit daughter on her wedding with the happy hero of her fancy.
These were Mr. Wood's words.
Cora ought to have felt happy now,
but she did not. As day followed day
she hoped to get rid of the strange,
dull yearning that filled her heart.
She thought only of one dark face, with
its sombre eyes, and sad yet bright
and mocking smile; nnd that voice
down deep in hor heart which had
asked that question respecting Charles
Wood—-"Is he not a hero 1"—now had
grown dogmatic and persistent in its
assertions that the overseer at the
manor had been, and was, a hero noble
as any redcross night of yore, who had
ridden out to battle, with his lady's
glove on the point of his lance and a
lock of her hair lying next his heart.
A hero!—a hero who filled all Cora's
waking thoughts and visited her in
dreams by night, always with that
same sad, bitter, iweet smile ou his
moust-aehed lip, and with mingled pain,
and scorn, and pitying tenderness in
the deop tones of his voice.
As time went on Cora grew large-
eyed and palo; her parents looked at
each other and wondered what ailed
their darling. They consulted a doctor, who prescribed change of air and
lively society; so the mother and
daughter packed up their clothes nnd
started one fine day for the picturesque
town of Malvern, some forty miles
distant. It was now late autumn, and
the boarding-houses were not so full
as they had been earlier in the year.
Three singlo gentlemen and two married couples, one of whom had with
them two grown-up daughters, completed the party that would ait down
to dinner that day.
Cora listened in apathy to all that
Mrs. Ruf us, tho landlady of the boarding-house, told her about her hoarders.
When she was alone with her mother,
changing her dress for th* six o'clock
dinner, Mrs. Rodwell said, with a laugh:
"Now, Cora, make yourself as
charming as you can; who knows but
you may meet your hero of romance
this evening?"
"It is impossible," said Cora, passionately. "Oh! mother, I once held
a jewel in my hand. I thought the
diamond a piece of bottle glass because it was not cut and polished so
brightly as I fancied it should have
been, and I cast it into tho son."
Cora steod before a large choval-
§lass; she was clothed in a long white
raising-gown; her beautiful black
hair streamed on her shoulders, for
she had been brushing it out.
Her young face, pale and thoughtful, her dark eyes filled with a melancholy light, struck her mother painfully. Mrs. Rodwell was a loving-
hearted, but a practical woman, and
she addressed to her romantic daughter
a few words which she deemed eloquent
of the soundest common sense,
"Cora," she said, "your mind is so
full of dreams and fancies that homely
duties are irksome to you, and home-
truths smite upon you like unkind
blows. Yet, my child, you must listen
to reason. Some time since n good
man offered you his honest love. Because he was not like a waxen head in
a hairdresser's, yon thought you could
not love him; he took you at your
word, and went away. Since then
you have found out that he was a hero,
«nd you spend your time in fretting
over spilt milk. I don't like to soe
yon standing there, making despairing
speeches, with your hair all down, as
if you were Ophelia, or some such un-
comfortAble girl. Do bind it up, my
dArling, and put on your nice prune
velveteen, and a flower, And some
white law, and you will be as protty
u eitHer of the other young ladies at
the table. Eat a good dinner, talk
nnd laugh; there ave othtr good follow! in the world—quite as good as
your lost hero."
Cora's nature was gentle; she obeyed
her mother, and appeared At the board'
ing-house dinner-table, looking beau,
tiful and delicate. She quite fascinated
a certain Captain Oliver—a dashing,
handsome young officer of twenty-five,
who, on recovering from a fever caught
at Alderahot, had been sent by his
doctor to benefit by the air of the
Malvern hills and the tonie of the
Malvern waters.
Captain Oliver was in a crack regiment; he was the second son of a
great county family in the Midlands;
he was quite beautiful, with fair curling hair, blue bright eyes, and classic
features; he was six feet high, full of
dash, and sparkle, and gaiety. Young
ns he was he had seen the world, and
he thought that he knew it. He paid
Cora a dozen compliments, and begged
to be allowed to be her escort the next
day, when the whole party were to
ride to some picturesque spot in the
neighborhood.
Cora seemed pleased with tho captain. As the days went on she talked
moro, laughed more, ate more. Her
mother began to have hopes of her.
One stormy, cold evening the boarders were all gathered round the tire,
playing cards, laughing, talking, making merry, when u stranger was announced, who was going to take his
coffee with the others.
A stranger ?   No.
"Mr. Wood!" said the landlady.
Cora looked up from the game sho
was playing, and there stood her lost
hero. How the beautiful blond captain turned us by magic into a tiresome, silly schoolboy when seen side
by side with the bronzed, handsome,
quiet, thoughtful man of more than
thirty-sevon yoars old.
Greetings passed between Cora and
the man she had refusd. His manner
was kindly but cold—very cold; and
as the days went on he sat apart aud
did not seem to watch her or the attentive captain, For his part, ho was
equally attentive to all the other young
ladies; but he spent a great deal of
time in his own room.
Cora's heart burned within her.
One morning she came earlier than
usual into the breakfast-room, and
there sat Mr. Wood writing a letter.
Ho looked up and Bmiled at her sadly.
Thou he rose, and advanced to meet
her with outstretched hand.
"You remember our bargain ?''he
Baid. "Whenever you met ypur hero
I was to make you a wedding-present!"
"But I have not met my hero!"
"Not the gallant captain VJ
"Oh! no; he is nothing to me—
nothing!"
Her voice shook; there were tears
in hor eyes.   Mr. Wood's face worked.
"You look sad! You havo been disappointed—some other hero!"
He looked at her. Their eyes met.
The truth dawned on him.
''What does this mean ?" he asked
huskily,
"It means—oh, that I was an idiot;
that I did not know ray heart; that
now I know it, when—when it is too
late; that the truest, noblest hero once
offered me his precious love; that 1
refused it, like a child who flings a
jewel into the sea; that now—now—
when it is too late "
Her voice was brokeu by sobs.
"Not too late!" said Mr. Wood, in
a voice that shook mere than her own.
"My darling, will you be a poor man's
wife / My heart has lain at your foot
from the first moment I met you!"
His arm encircled her. Their lips
met.   Cora uttered a low cry of joy.
"A poor man's wife?" said Charles.
"In a garret with you!" was the
passionate reply.
*****
They were wed soon—so soon that
the Rodwell parents who came to the
wedding, which took place at Malvern,
were a little atartled at the haste of
the arrangements.
"We shall go over to Paris for a
week," said Mr. Wood, the day before
the wedding, to Mr. Rodwell, "and
then we shall come to Lonsdale."
Cora spent a blissful week in Paris
with her husband, and then, since she
had no will save his, she prepared to
accompany him to Lonsdale.
"Mr. John Chester is about to return with his bride to tho manor-
house," said Mr. Wood to Cora. "Tho
house is beautiful now! I mean to
introduce you to him nnd his bride."
"Oh, I shall bo afraid of her!" said
Cora.   "A fine lady!"
"You will not be at all afraid of her!"
"You know her then ?"
"Slightly."
They started for England that night,
arrived in London, and spent tho next
day in a pleasant, quiet hotel.
"We must go on to Lonsdale to-day,"
said Cora's husband. "Mr. Chester
has given us rooms in a corner of the
manor-house for tho present; there is
still one wing to decorate."
"I shall be better pleased, darling,
when we have a house of our own,"
aaid Cora, wistfully. Her husband
stopped further speech with n kiss.
The next afternoon was a fine, bright
one, though the month was November.
The bride and bridegroom got into a
cab at the station, aud were driven
through by-laneB to the gates of the
manor-house. These flew open, and
the lodge-keeper doffed his cap and
shouted hurra! '
"How fond these people seem of
you, darling!'' aaid Cora.
Arrived at the house, Cora was amazed to aca the entrance-door wide
opon and a crowd of servants in the
hall. Like one in a dream her husband
led her through the bowing ranks.
"Before anything I must introduce
you to Mrs. Chester," aaid Mr. Wood.
She mounted the wide staircase still
like one in a dream, and was led into.
a magnificent bed-chamber. At tho
further end an enormous mirror was
set in tho carven walnut wood of the
panelled wall. Straight up to this the
bridegroom led the bride; then he
pointed to the slender figuro in the
blue velvet travelling coat.
"That is Mrs, John Chester," said
he—"the mistress of the manor-house;
and that is John, christened Charles
John, and called Charles during the
maniage aorvice. As for tho certificate, you were so agitated that, if you
remember, I guided your hand when
yoii wrote your name, and you did not
notice it; but I feared then the secret
would have come out, I am not at all
a poor man, darling, but I had a romantic whim: it was the desire to be
married for myself, not fer the sake of
the manor-house. Now that you have
seen Mrs. 0. J. Chester, Are you
afraid of her?"1
