,,,,.» In tjbe last issue of the Columbian
the critical condition of .nffkira in
1,J6jypl'waej lifielly 'mentioned. Tlio
Simses which have precipitated this
crisis are easily explained. Egypt
has borrowed immense sums of nion-
oy from British and French lenders.
But for many years Egyptian Buan-
-ces were so hopefeWy mismanaged
that the bond-holders received no
interest tfii 'tlieir loans.   Indeed it
. uecame evident from many circumstances that Egypt intended to pay
lieither principal nor interest so
long as she 'could possibly avoid it.
After years of fruitless diplomatic
correspondence 'tlio British and
French   bond-holders succeeded in
: 'enlisting the sympathies of their
vespective Governments to such an
Vixtent that a determined action was
taken. The finiuiciitl itffaira of
Egypt WWe phreed under control uf
British and French officials, who collected the revenue and administered
the expenditure. By this menus
Egypt was saved from hopeless
bankruptcy, and the bond-holders
.were enabled to receive dividends
\)n their interest account. The present Khedive seems to hnve uOrjui
tesced in this arrangement, partly-,
perhaps, because it relieved him
from the bother of managing his
town cash, and partly because he
favored a plan which seemed to promise the extinguishment of Egypt's
debt without dishonor. Hut Arabi
Bey, who is head of tiro military
power, had other plans, He is ambitious, talented, unscrupulous, and
Very popular with tlie army. Arabi
had an idea thnt Egypt wan quite
able to manage hor own aflaii-s
without the assistance of Europe.
He evidently believed thnt the
rdldrtest nnd easiest way to pay
Egypt's enormous debt was to repudiate it. With that Object in view
he has been actively encouraging the
apiritof hostility to foreigners which
Ike found in various quarters and
quietly preparing military forces for
any emergency. The situation wns
simply this: the Khedive wished
things to go tin ito they were; Arabi
lley wished to repudiate tlio national
debt, seise the reins of government
himself, and establish n united Arabia ; tlie Sultan of Turkey wants
people to leave Egypt alone, and he
will run it liitnstilf; Among .those
conflicting policies Arabi's seems to
llave prevailed. He had the army
Witli liiril and believed lllmself able
td bltiff off- the British. But lie lias
fotllid out his mistake. Oh the 11th
inst Admiral Seymour demolished
Alexandria, and Arabi's forts and
gllua are battered to ruins. This

KITH AND KIN.
' (Continued.)
"She must bo wonderfully protty."
' *Sho iB a grunt deal prettier than
that," replied Bernard amiably, nud
Randulf, thanking him, retuniod the
cane to him.
Now Kmidnlf had a topic vory near
hia heart too — a topic which lio
thought ho might be able to clisniss
with Aglionby. The two young mon
had certainly drawn wonderfully noar
to each other during .this abort'oVorf-
ing of . converfwidon. - The fact was,
that each admired IfcMrther's qualities.
Aglionby's caustic abruptness; his cool
and steady doporttfient> and his imperturbable dignity and eelf-p'osaession
under his changed fortunes, pleased
Randulf exceedingly. He liked a man
who could faco the extremes of fortune
with unshaken nerve; who could carry
himsolf proudly and independently
through evil circumstances, and could
accept a brilliant change with calm
nonchalance. Randulf's sangfroid, bis
unconventional manner* his independence of his luxnrioua surroundings—
bis innate hardness and simplicity of
character pleased Aglionby. But Bernard's feelings toward Randulf wore,
it must bo remembered, uncomplicated; Randulf's sentiments toward Bernard wero vaguer—he felt every disposition to liko hi n't thoroughly, and to
make a friend of him; but lie had a
doubt or two; thoro were sinne points
to bo decided which ho whs not yet
clear about.    Ho said, after a pause:
"I was very cool to ask you to show
mo. Miss Vane's likeness. J owe you
something in return.   Look at thoso I"
He rose, aud opening thu portfolio
bufuru spoken of,drewout two sketches,
and bringing the lamp near, turned it
up, and showed the pictures to Bernard.
"What dq you think uf those !" he
asked.   Aglionby looked at them.
"Why, this is Danesdalo Castle, unmistakably, and woll done too, I
should say, thuut***!. I am no judge. It
looks ao spirited.''
"Now look at tho other,"
It wj.s Randulf and his dogs. Aglionby, keenly sensible of tho ridiculous, burst out laughing.
"That's splendid, but you must bo
very amiably disposed towards the artist to take such a 'taltb-oll1 Good-naturedly."
"Isn't it malicious? Dono by someone, don't you think, who must lmvo
seen all my weak pointB at a glance,
aud who knew how to make the most
of thorn ?"
"Exactly," mid Bernard, much
amused-, and still more so to observe
the pleased complacency with which
Randulf spoke of a drawing \Vhich,
without being a caricature, made him
look so absurd. "Is he a friend of
yours—lhe artist ?" ho asked.
"Jt was left to my discretion, whether I told tho niuiie of the artist or not.
Vou must promise that it goes no
further."
"Certainly."
"They were drawn by Miss Delphino
Conisbrough."      •
Bernard started violently; his face
Hushed all over—hu laid tliu drawing
down, looking earnestly at Randulf.
"By Judith Conisbrough's sister ?"
he asked.
"The same," said Randulf, ptiSing
away imperturbably, and thinking} "it
is just as I thought. That little piece
of wax-work whose lilruuess 1 have
eeou, cannot blind him so that he
doesn't know a imblo woman when he
meets her." Aud he waited till Bur-
nurd said:
"You nmuKe mo. Thoro is surely
vory high thlont in them; you ought-
to Me ii butter judge than me. Don t
j'ou think thein very cleverr
"I think thein moro than clover.
They have the very highest promise in
them; The only thing is, her talent
wants cultivating."
"Hheahduld have somo lessons," said
Bernard eagerly.
"So I voutuvod to tell her, but sho
said—" ho paused, and (hen went pit,
in a voice whose tonderness and regret
he could not control, "that they wore
too poor."
He looked ut Bornard.   "If he has
any feeling on tho subject," ho thought,
"that ought to fetch him."
It "fetched" Boniard iu a mannor
part of Britain uiiiyrest.lt in nilencin
Arabi  Bey or It- may not   Ho has | which Randulf had hardly calc'ul'at'eti
the vanity td declare himsolf a second   nVm\..He. started up from his char
Knpoleoti; nnd ho may possibly per
aiat in the foolish attempt to defy
flinicessfully tile British nation. If
hostilities are continued, the war
may be ot tdng duration; for the
Egyptians havd tllodes of warfare
With which it might be difficult for
Europeans to cope on Egyptian soil.
' But the struggle can only end in tho
conquet of Egypt and the triumph
of British arms. The naval buttle
fought before Alexandria on the 11 th
itiat. wris" one of the most remarkable
tin record, and showed the terrible
destruction of whieh modern armaments are capable. On another page
will lie found telegraphic despatches
containing the cliief incidents of the
bombardment.
,-N, A recent paper by Major Hallott
gives instances o'f the rumarkublc
results which have followed cubrts to
improve food-plants by a regularly-
contmuod practido of selecting the
seeds of the best plants for planting.
Vinci, beetroots, cereals and nirtntqe'a
havo greatly improved- under the
system of selection, in some case's the
annual yield per aero being trebled iir
a- few years: j
forgetting tho strangeness nf speaking
openly ou such n subject to so recent
an acquaintance. Ho had been longing
to speak to some one of his griefs connected with his cousins; this was too
good an opportunity Hi bo lost.
"Too poor!" he exclaimed, striding
about tho rouui; "Shu told you that!
Good God! will they never havo pun-,
ishud me enough 7"
The veins hi his forehead started
out. His perturbation was deep aud
intense. Randulf laid his oigav down,
and askod softly:
"Punished you—liQwdrtyou mean?"
"I moan with their rosentmont—
their implacable enmity and contempt,
To tell you that sho was too poor—
when-—"
"It must have been true:"
"Ot courso it is tftie; but It is their
own fault."
"I don't undorfltand."
"But I will explain. It it- n mystery
I cannot unravel. Perhaps you can
help me."
He told Randulf of bis dosirC to be
just, and how Judith had at first promised not lo opposo his Wishes. Then
ho went oh:
"What had caused her to change
hor mind beforo I spoke to her again,
I cannot imagine. I fear I am but a
rough kind of fellow, but in approaching tho subjotit with Miss Conisbrough,
I used what delicacy I could. I told

Laying aside the moral and physical aspects, it will be readily conceded that national wealth and greatness should bo the aim of all governments. These conditions imply contentment and prosperity. It becomes
one of the first duties of nil public
men to enquire by what means u
nation's wealth and greatness may
be best promoted nnd accomplished.
Somo countries are so situated and
so constituted that their natural
resources are few and limited. They
have no fertile hinds, no forests of
vahiablo timber, no minerals, no
sources of food supply. For them
national greatness can only be
reached through artificial channels—
either by trade or manufactures, or
both, Of all the ttntural resources
wliich go .to make up a nation's
wealth snd greatness thero is none
moro important than that of agriculture. We may havo mineral
lands of groat richness, hut the
mines must in time become exhausted; wo may have valuable
timber, but it disappears before tbe
five and the axeman j wo may have
fish and furs, but they, too, may become extinct or disappear from our
coasts; wo may havo a largo artificial trade, but the digging of a
new canal or the building of a new
railway may suddenly turn trade
away from us into other channels.
But if a nation's wealth mul greatness aro built upon its agricultural
resources, they aro built upon a
foundation both safe and,permanent.
There may be seasons of cold or wet,
of scorching heat or deadly drought;
but nature's vital forces are wonderfully elastic, and the equilibrium
cannot long remain disturbed. There
is nothing in this world of changes
more certain than tho fact that if
■we sow we shall nlso reap.
Iu this country the conditions are
unusually favorable for the agriculturist. Wc have a soil whose capabilities are Acknowledged to be extraordinary ; we have markets where
the prices of agricultural products
rule higher, perhaps, than in any
other civilized land ; we have a climate peculiarly favorable for agricultural pursuits, the. mild winters
and long summers extending agricultural operations far beyond the
ordinary limits. But in spite of all
these substantial advantages British
Coumbia is not much of an agricultural country. Peojdc do not come
hero to work—they come to dig
gold, or catcli fish, or speculate in
sites of prospective railway termini.
Herein lies an explanation of the
fact that, even at this lato date in
the history of British Columbia, we(
are still importing thousands of dollars' worth of agricultural products.
No person can say that farming in
British Columbia lias been a failure.
There arc times and places in which
crops have partially failed, but these
blights upon general success will be
found in all countries. There are
hundreds of farmers in this country
who, beginning under circumstances
not tho most favorable, aro to-day
independently wealthy, We do not
know of any instance where a man
has intelligently followed agriculture
iu British Columbia without accumulating wealth. Indeed, it could
scarcely be otherwise. With a rich
soil, a working season of nearly
twolvo months, and a very high
cash market for nll products of the
soil, bow- could tho intelligent, in
dustrious farmer fail of success?
In some   parts of   tbe country
there aro circumstances which undoubtedly stand in tho  way of successful agricultural operations, Large
tiacts of the best land have remained
locked up from settlement in consequence of the dispute between the
provincial and national govornments.
Many people have been anxious to
take up these lands and work them,
but could not.    Tlio absence of good
roads in the interior is also a great
drawback.    No matter how richly
the soil may reward  him   who tills
it, if the means of reaching the market are bad, farming cannot bo very
successful.     Without    wishing   to
strain facts to make u political point,
it  must bo admitted   that  tho present provincial government has been
criminally  negligent  of  the public
highways.    As a class our farmers
are not unreasonable in  tlieir demands.    They  do  not   expect im-
possibilitiwi, but  thoy lmvo a right
to expect tliat they, who contribute
so largely to tho revenues of the
cduntiy, shall receive fair consideration in the expenditure of those
revenues. For years wc have-seen
the leading roads falling into ruin,
tho bridges swept away without being replaced, and the farmers left to
shift as best they could. At the
same time the "efforts of the tax collectors havo not abated, and the
lands of thoso who have become
delinquent through m'tefortune are
ottered for salo by public auction 1
It should be tbe first care of a government to encourage and assist that
industry which may contribute in tho
greatest degree to the national progress and wealth. That industry in
this country is agriculture, and the
government which does not seriously
concern itself about the development of our agricultural interests is
not deserving of support. But in
the face of some discouraging circumstances no man need be afraid
to venture upon going ihto agricultural pursits in British -Columbia.
There is big money in it, and plenty
room for thousands who In other
countries would bo scarcely able to
make both ends meet.
Editorial Notes.
In another column will ho found
a communication from Mr. Mara relating to the statement wliich appeared in the Columbian of June
21st;. Mr. Main's own version of
his speech on the DeCosmos mission
will certainly not bring much comfort to the Standard and its crowd,
and it will not help tbo cause of the
few persons on tho Mainland who
still support the Government.
A late number of the Ilawoay Aye
states that nearly 5,000 miles of new
railway track have been laid down in
tho United States during the half
year ending ."Otli June. This is main
line, and does not include side tracks
or double tracks oh the same road,
of which many hundred miles have
been put down. The length of main
track laid fur tho corresponding period of last year was a little over
2,000. Eailwny building at the
present moment is being pushed on
with unabated vigor, and the result
of the year's operations will probably exceed 10,000 miles. The total
railway mileage of the United States
is said to be over 107.000 miles.
American Defences.
Washington, July 11.—The situation in Egypt has attracted much attention at the capital to-day, especially
at tho war and navy departments.
Army and navy officers aro awaiting
interesting results of the bombardment. A scientific interest is felt in
this contest, as it is believed that it
will bo instructive iu determining the
lighting value of the latest pattern of
ironclads, built with heavy ordnance.
Tho British ship Invincible is supplied
with thu new eighty-ton rifled gun.
The representative here of the largest
ordnance manufactory in the country,
as he read the announcement lhat the
four forts had fallen, aaid: "No more
convincing proof -ia necessary uf the
great value of heavy ordnance. Fortifications cannot stand against them.
Tho same British fleet that is off Alexandria to-day could batter down every
fort that we havo from Maine to Florida, and could sail directly under our
guns and fire with impunity. That ia
thu Iuhhoii of the Alexandria bombardment for this country, aud our government had better bu doing something
about it, fur, as A. B, Hewitt said very
truthfully in the house tbo other day,
it would take threo years to build a
single ono of thoso 80-ton guns."
Mr. Edward Muybridge predicts
that in tlm near future tho aid of
photography will bu sought to determine thu result of all important horse
races. With an invisible thread
stretched across tho track to operate
a camera slide, it is a simple matter
tu photograph tbo animals in the
twinkling of an eye as thoy pass the
winning post. In thu operation of
this system thero could bo no "dead
heats" un account of thu disagreement
of judges, as the record of tlio photograph would show with unerring
accuracy thu winner of the raco.

Bad Blood.—The blood is the true
euBonc'6 of vitality, without pure blood
there can be no healthy action in the system. Boils, blotches, pimples and the
various humors and blemishes of the

—that needs purifying ut its fountain

Oknti.kmkn :*— I h-ivo ln»en induced lo
offer myself as a cmididute at tlio approaching election to represeVit you in
llm Provincial Legisl.tture.
Amongst the •arens'ures I "would advocate, should you do me tho honor to
select me as your representative, are the
following;
The removal of the Capital to the
Mainland; biennial sessions; opposing-a
useless expenditure on Dry Dock-; settling any disputes between Domnion
and Local Governments'; opposing needless misfiflns* three Ministers ample; reducing indemnity of'Members to $5.00
fur 30 days, wiih mileage, nnd no more;
amend School Act to give Trustees full
power over grunt to school; Registry
Otlice for New Westminster; rpvlsion uf
Voter.*.1 lists and a redistribution of seats;
steam ferry charters where required;
give flooded disirict aid, and favor nny
practical scheme for reclaiming lauds;
Improvement) of roads, Ac, kc, and
revenn'e to be fairly apportioned and
spent where roost required; amend Dog
Act. 1881 ^to apply io all stock; compensation to jurymen and wltnessef*; resident Judge for New Westminster; urge on
Dominion lo restrict Chinese immigra-
grtiiimi and to assist oilier itiimlprants
w'uh Provincial aid; uud would support
good measures from whatever source
they might emanate.
As it "is Impossible in ft short address
to fully i-xplnm my views, I would suggest lo the different eiindidiitps to travel
together nnd address you nt the different polling stations and ftuy'othcr places
where most convenient lor vou to attend,
so that ench could move fully explain
tlieir views, wliich would save yon a
den! of vi.in.iblo time at this busy season of the year.
Should any miforsccti and important
rpipBlions arise, and yuu should do
mo lhe honor to elect me, I would cn-
deavor to ascertain your wishes aud
then, as youi servant, act accordingly.
And as your interests are identical
with my own, rest assured that 1 would
use my utmost endeavors lo further the
int -rests of lhe District nnd tin Province
at large.
1 have tlie honor to bv,
Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,
Jjria WM. II. LADNISfU
To the Electors of the District
of New Westminster.
GentIiKMBK:—Tho numerous assurances of support which 1 have received
from all sections of the District have
prompted mid to offer myself as a candidate at tho npp'roncliuig election for tho
Legistoturo.
f am opposed to the present Government because their poliuy has not been
in accord with the wishes and the deliberate judgment of the people.
Their blundering misinatiagciiicut of
the Dry Duck has precipitated the Province upon tbe verge of bankruptcy.
Their DeCosmos mission to England
was impolitic and indefensible, It exhibited base ingratitude to the Dominion
Government at a time when-, tbey were
using their utmost endeavors tu fulfil
their obligations to the Province and the
nilsslonjias simply resulted iu alienating
the sympathies of our bast friends and
has incurred tbe scorn of the sister provinces.
Their Land Amendment Act of 1878,
which places iu the hands of the Exeoil-
tive the power of "eviction" and "confiscation" after only three months' warning, had not a shadow of justification in
the premises —no possible pretext for
proceedings so heartless and ao arbitrary.
It was a deliberate and unprovoked attack upon the freedom of the electorate
;ind deserves tbe reprobation of every
farming community iu the Province.
If elected, I shall advocate au equitable redistribution uf seats in the Legislature; relief tu repair the damages dune
to roads and bridges in the recently
flooded portions of the District; the keep*
fug of all trunk roads in repair at tbe
expense of the Government; the devising
of means to lift the dry-dock incubus
from the. shoulders uf the Province; a
wider application of our Municipal system, in order mure economically and
effectively to grapple with our much
needed improvements; and any general
measure which hns for its object the advancement of the interests uf tho District.
1 shall consider it my duty to support
any Government which may be formed
who, discarding sectional predilections,
evince an llOliesi determination to work
fur the general interests of the Province,
nud shall endeavor to act iu harmony
with my colleagues of the District and
City, always, however, reserving to myself tho right to exercise au independent
judgment, uutrammeled hy the pretensions of any individual ur clique.
I hope to form a personal acquaintance
with the must uf the electors during my
canvass and shall take pleasure in discussing more fully questions of local and
general interest.

Gkntumkin',—1 laving been solicited
by ft, largo number of tho Electors interested in thb general welfare of our District, I allow myself to 1* nominated as
a candidate for your suffrages at tho

Legislature.
My political views are briefly as follows ;
Although independent of party, 1 disapprove of the policy of the present administration, more especially in regard
tn the., expenditure of large amounts uf
the public revenue upon the dock at
Knqnunalta-nd the DeCosmos mission.
I will do what I cUii towards promoting the construction of roads nnd bridges
and the ertabtislnnunt of schools throughout the Province and especially in the
District that I expect to lmvo tile honor
of representing.   ,
Our lumber trmlo wul receive my best
attention, as also our fisheries and the
dyking of tho prairie lands.
1 am in favor of offering substantial
inducements to bonafido settlers, every
one of whom should be allowed a free
grant of 100 acros of land as a homestead.
Land speculation or monopolization I
Bhall oppose by every legitimate means.
I believe in llOnresentation According

This camp is situated on English

The works aud plant could not have

good, substantial wooden railway,
about two miles in length, extending
back into the forest, aiid uptiii this is
successfully operated one of Thompson's iQlasgow) traction engines. By
the ingenuity of Mr. Mooney this oii-
gino has been adapted to the work by
removing tlio rubber bands nnd chain
armory from tho driving wheels and
substituting two double flange wheels
in frdrit. Mr. Mooney hr*s nlso constructed a very strong car for carrying
tho logs, many df which aro of great
size. It is provided with oight wheels,
without cross axles, so that tho wheels,
acting on a pivot, readily adjust thom-
selves to tile* track und scmn to answer
admirably. This car take's about 20,-
000 foot of timber at a load, and* jnakes
from 4 to 5 trips a day. Mr. Mrtdnoy
is about to construct anothor car; the
dugine having antplo power to draw
tho two with, say, 46,000 feot at a

Excelslftr Hanrf.
Editor Columbian.—I was surprised at a communication fromOapt. Peele
in lust iasuu of your paper on tho subject of the probable disbanding of tho
Excelsior Band.
Tho communication contains two
statements which I wish to notice and
answer in order. First, Capt. Peele
says.—"! have received no intimation
from Ine Baud Committee tu the effect
mentioned in your item.'' In answer
to this statement I beg to say that I
was one of ft Committee appointed by
tho Band to wait upon the officers of
the Militia Companies and ask them if
they intended to carry oitf tho agreement thoy had made with tho Bund,
Tho Baud Committee was kindly
met by Cnpt. Pittondrigh, Capt. Peele,
Lieuteilahfc Bole and Sui'ii-Jon Trew, to
whom wo presented the extreme necessities 'of tlio Band and stated that unless tile agreement, was carried out the
Baud could not maintain its present
organization. In response the officers,
aud none more huidly than Capt.
Poele, promised immediate action and
said it was *'ton bad" that it had uot
been done before. So much for ''receiving no information,'1 Ac.
With reference to the statement—
"I have* yet to see tbe company I have
the honor to command repudiate" luly
agreement they have entered into"—
I answer, quite possible—thoy simply
ignore it. If the company Capt, Peele
has tbo honor to comui-ii.tt are acting
on the orders of their commanding
officer that command has certainly
been tn pursue n course nf ''masterly
inactivity."
For the information 'if yourself, Mr.
Editiit*, nud the public, I beg to Bay
that since the organization of the Baud
its earning!- have been 8180, all of
which lias gone into the Bund fund.
To make up deficiency the members
have from tlleit own pockets ebntrt-
buted over 840. On matured obligations of tbe MilitinCompauies Amount-
im to $140, has been paid $30 and a
can of citiU oil. I am Sir, very respectfully,     ,    ,

Mr, Mara on the DeCosmos
Mission.
Editor OolumdiASj*—In ytllb? issue
of the 21st tilt. I mu appealed to iu
rofereuco to language used by me in
the Houtte; on the subject of tho De-
Cosmos Mission. I have not either
the Standard or Colonist- to refer to,
and cannot recollect how I was reported on that occasion, but I remember
distinctly that an interpretation altogether different fronl what 1 liad intended wns given by the former paper.
Tho discussion arose ou a question
asked by Mr. Armstrong. In the
courso of my remarks, aftor stating
that Mr. DeCosmos' personal expenses wore very moderate, I said, "It
might bo interesting for the member
for N. W. (Mr. A.) to learn that a
large portion of the amount was expended in printing maps and pamphlets of n voluminous character; that
Mr, DeCosmos had proved himself an
able advocate intryiugtorob tho Mainland of the terminus; that he had
done his utmost to show that a steam
ferry should be established between
Burrrtrd Inlet nud Niiuaimo; and that
tho tet-minils ought to be on Mio
Island.". .This is substantially what I
said, and 1 havo no hesitation iu appealing to Mtf. Armstrong, Mr. Hum1
phroy iind Mr. Beavon to corroborate
it. The lirst two took part iu the d,is-
cussion arid the last was an attentive
listener,
I was opposed tr) tho Mission from
first to last, and tike many others,
thought Mr. DuCasmos' o-qirmscs were
enormous. But nn examination uf the
accounts showod that thoy were moderate, and I thought it only fair to
that gentleman to state so.
Yours, otc,
J. A. Maim.

Ai.BXANnm>, July 10.—No message
Vif surrender has come off shore. Tlie
signal has been hoisted for the fleet to
clear for action. Inside the luirbor,
beginning from Fort Phjirose, will be
the Tetperaco and Alexandria, Superb
and Inflexible. On board the latter
all is ready for notion. Numerous
windmills, for ventilation between
decks during tho action, form a strange
picture, as they lower far from the
somber turrets. Wo shall see the hot-
tost tight to-morrow. At 11 o'clock
the Invincible, Monarch and Penelope
moved out and anchored outside the
harbor. Tho sceno was impressive iu
n high deyree. SloMy idl tlm foreign
ships moved from their berths and
Bteumed out of tho harbor. The merchant steamers presented no regular
order, but the war ships of the various
nations steamed out in squadrons,
saluting as they passed tho Admiral's
flag. Thu bauds played national airs.
Scarcely a breath of wind was bltiwing.
The various ensigns drooped against
tho inaBts. Tho bright eastern sky
overhead, tho "deep bliie sutl, the white
clothed crews, clustering iu tho rigging, and tho knowledge of the change
whicli would sooii take place, rendered
tho stately procession of war ships extremely impressive. The merchant
steamers wore all crowded with refugees, those who hud held on to tho
last in tho hope that matters would
not come to an extremity. By half-past
12 the American squadron of three
ships, tho Russian ships, oiie Austrian
and one German had all gone.
ALiiXANmiil, July il.—A correspondent on board the Invincible telegraphs:—At 20 minutes after t» the
ships* of the squadron signalled all
ready, but a still further delay was
necessary. All the Egyptian Jllicera,
carrying the admiral's reply to the
Minister, will be put nflllore at half-
past six. A quiet order was [Iftsned
around the deck to load with common
shell, and a gleam of satisfaction shone
on tlio men's faces, when at 7 o'clock
the signal was made lo tho Alexandria
to open tho bull by one gnu. Tho
heavy boom came across the water.
Then there was au anxious pause.
Would the Egyptians answer or would
they evacuate the forts? No sound
camo from the fort, but tin batteries
opposite we could see men loading tho
guns, Thoy Would light. The order
was given to conimoncu independent
firing, and the signal was run up for
the Hect to bogili a genera! engagement. ..-V deafening salvo from live
nine-inch guns went from the sidu of the
Invincible, while overhead ten Nord-
enfelt guns on tho top swelled the din
which burst forth from all the ships.
The bank of smoke which at once
ai'oSe like n wall from our ship prevented mo froi'ii seeing the results of our
fire, but from the tup it was seen that
the shells had struck rather" low, and
the sight!, wut"o raised from 1,350 to
1,500 yards. The Monarch and the
Penelope both had work closo at hand'
aud tho roar of their heavy guns and
the ceaseless rattle of their gattliugs
and Nordenfcldt machines, aud the
shrieks of the rockets which (he Monarch was discharging, added to the
soulids bf our own guns, made u)i a
dc'op, cnutiuus din, which it is impossible to describe, and which was most
bewildering to hear. In any momentary interval tho sound of the g
from othor divisions of the ih.ut told
that they also wore* hard at work. Thu
hardy aiuidshipmcn posted in the mu
top signalled the direction of (he
strt-ke of tbe shells, and their accuracy of (ire was improved. Memilinie
the enomy's shots were coming thick
ami fast, their aim being directed
chiefly against tho Ponalopo ami Inflexible, They wero firing principally
round aliot. Twenty minutes after tho
first gnu from tlie fart, the royal braces
wore shot away. Iniuiediately after a
shot penetrated, Hplinte'r wounding a
stoker syvetely. At this time limy
appeared to have got our range pretty
accurately, and round and Conical shot
whittled thickly between lhe moats. 1
went around thu ship aud found men
fighting the main-deck t'lius, all stripped to (ho waist. Between each shot
(hey had to sit down and wait until
the smoke cleared. They were very
anxious to know thu result of (heir
work, and asked eager questions uf
me us to what could be seen above,
but I could tell them little, for the
smoke hung liko a vail between ship
ami shore. To-morrow wu go in to
engage the forts within thu harbor.
Ou the outside of us are merchant
ships aud foreign war vessels, the| most
of whom will re-enter the harbor when
wo have destroyed the last of the
threatening forts. Over Alexandria
lies a cloud <tf battle, partly caused,
no doubt by the smoke of guns, which
the wind has not blown cleat* oil" the
town, and partly from that arising
from thu burning pnlaoo. No inos-
sngoof nows has reached us from town,
and we know itothlng of what is missing, what loss has been suffered, or
what foolinys excited among (he soldiers and tho populace by the events
of (no day. The last uuws whieh
reached us bufore the light com si en ceil
wtis to tho effecf that the Nationals
were going to cut thu wire with India,
ami were considering the advisability
of blocking the Sue;! Canal. The
ovents of to-day show thai the deter*
minntiou expressed by Arabi and his
parly, to oppose tho fleet to the bitter
death, has not so far been a vain bonst;
-I think thoy fought their guns to (he
last. But tho lire of the fleet Was so
oruslilrig, and our metal bo ■jijjfdrlor
as to nlal.u their resistitnc'c inelleclunl.
Londc/n, July 11.—A dispatch to
Lloyds front Port Said states that tho
British Consul there, by order of
Admiral Seymour, hac stooped ships
from entering Iho Such canal. Admiral Seymour telegraphs lis follows;
"Tho ship.i opened lire at 7 o'clock
this morniiig. 'i'ho return, lire from
thii forts was weak liltd ineffective.
An explosion In Fort Mitrsael Kauat
had occurred by H o'clock. The ships

Tlio    Bazoltino   pahico   look   fire
dtiring tho bombardment, ami is still
burning at tho time of this writing.
Mon wero called for on board the
Invincible at 1 p, m., to go ashore and
spike the guns of the fort.
A correspondent on the Invincible
telegraphs that the fort and batteries
on'tho seawall area heap of ruins.
The Egyptians stuck* to their guns
until the folia were crumbling. The
aim of tne Egyptian gunners was
chiefly against the Penelope and inflexible, and thoy' fired principally
round shut. Their elevation was bad.
Tho Invincible was seldom hit. Tho
armor.Of the Superb was penetrated.
Egyptian officers set a gootl example
to their men, often jumping upon the
parapet to sou the effects of their
tiring. Marines who landed from tho
Invincible to blow-up the forts saiV
several dead inside the forts, The
Egyptians had no shells, whieh fact
accounts for the small number of casualties on the British vessels. Thu
casualties on thu British side, ut the
close of lhe engagement, were 5 killed
and 27 wounded.
At.KXAxoiUA, July 13. —Tho city
has been evacuated and is in flames.
The Egyptians tied and thu Bedouins
by thousands began sacking and burning the houses. Hundreds of foreigners were niassacvud. Arabi Buy is said
to have gotlo towards the canal with
about 2,000 followers. The Egyptian
loss in the bombardment is said to be
very heavy. Tho whole European

To tlie Electors of New Westminster District:
Gentlemen:—J am a candidate
for the representation of vour District
in tbe Legislative Assembly; and although most of you are doubtless already aware, of my views upon the
leading public questions of tlie day,
.still it is fitting that, in soliciting your
suffrages, I sl'iouic! makVa' brlefstate-
trient of my political "creed"-more
particularly in respect of those questions with which lhe next Legislature
may be expected to deal.
THE   DIIV DOCK.
The Dublished reports of recent iii-
vcstigatlbhs in!o the management of
affairs connected with this work, while
showing a deplorable want of foresight and judgment, if not Honesty, on
the part of the Government, amply
prove that a continuance of (lie salne
policy would lead the country into
serious financial distress.
You will remember that tbe dock
was specifically provided for in the
Terms of Union, and it had no more
right to become a charge upon the
Provincial revenue than any of the other works mentioned in these Terms.
Indeed, it was upon the solemn assurance pf tbe Provincial Government
tbat the dock "would not cost the
Province a dollar'1 that the Legislature
was induced to sanction the scheme
which has led lo such disastrous results.
Upon this work has already been
squandered several hundred thousand
dollars of public money which should
have been applied towards the construction and maintenance of roads
and bridges and the establishment of
schools in the settlements; and according to present appearances,, the waste
ofour revenue upon the dock will exceed half a million before the work
can be brought to completion, to say
nothing about perpetual demands for
maintenance.
If will, therefore, be amongst tbe
most important dulics of the Legislature to devise some means pf lifting this
Intolerable burden entirely off the
shbtliders bf tile Province.
CHINESE LABOU.
When in tbe Legislature, ton years
ago, I was the first lo direct attention
to what is now known as the Chinese
Evil, Willi great difficulty 1 succeeded In having Chinamen excluded
from (be political franchise. The
very party now in power succeeded in
defeating' my efforts to exclude them
from the country; and amongst those
who now talk tlie loudest against the
Chinese I observe some who were at
thai period tbe strongest opponents of
repressive measures. Had timely and
robust efforts .been put forth there Is
ro reason to dout that, instead of a
yellow CURSE in tbe form of ten thousand Mongolian slaves draining the
wealth of the country into tbe pockets
of their foreign owners, wc should have
had a white DRESSING in lhe form of at
least an equal number of our own
race, helping to enrich the country
and build up happy and prosperous
communities.
To devise and apply a reihedy for
this how universally admitted evil'will
constitute one of the problems lyllb
which the new Legislature will be
called upon to deal. Recent effort in
that direction has never risen higher
than political clap-trap and street-
corner declamation.
rei\ nv POP.
The doctrine of Representation bj
or according to populaticn-the ole
war-cry of Ontario tlvirty years ago-
is one which must commend itself tc
every fair-minded person, although
there may be circumstances under
which its full application would .scarcely be practicable. The time has come
when there should be a nearer ap1
proximation to that principle in British Columbia.
During the last Legislature wc saw
FIFTEEN electors in Kootenay sending to tbe. Mouse exactly the same
number of representatives that t-inin
HUNDRED electors in the Valley ol
the I-'raser were allowed to send! An
attempt to give your District some
approximation to' the represehtallbfi
to which its voting power and.immense resources entitled il was Hcfeat-
etl bv the casting vote of a p'arttzah
Speaker; antj yet the men who perpetrated that glaring act of- Injustice
nave the assurance lo ask you for a
fresh lease of power!
Such monstrous .inequalities In lhe
representation of the country must be
remedied^ and should I ' have the
honor of1  being elected   as   t\no of
your representatives, I shall make ft
my especial business to insist upon
justice being done "to your important
District in this respect.
FISCAL POL-ICY.
Through the laziness, and inconv-
petency of those in power tbe fiscal
affairs of the country have becn'al-
lowed to drift into a condition the reverse of satisfactory. The wretched
patchwork o'f upwards of a decade
must be replaced bysofncflitng deserving the name of "policy." ' •"
At present, "How to raise most
revenue with least trouble" would
appear to be the'problem with which
tbe Government has been wrestling;
and the consequence is that, while
taxation falls with crushing severity
irppn .farmers—the very class which
slrguTd be most IjghtJy taxed—the least
productive classes escape almost scot
iree.     _   ' ( ■ ,        (■>
Taxation is inevitable. Revenue is
essential. -Built, should be lhe earnest endeavor of a Government to so
apportion tiixaiitn as that it shall fall
lightest upon the Industrial classes,
aud so expend rcvemie'-i.s fHMftfc■permanent interests of the c6Uifti*y snail
be promoted. The whole fiscal fabric
of the Province needs reconstruction.
PUULIC WO--.KS. ,t '
It is admitted on all sides that the
Public Works of the country have
been allowed to fall into a conditiort
little short of disgraceful! Muclj
care and attention will be rcquired'to
remedy this slate of things. A judi-.
doll's, (hough not necessarily heavy,:
expenditure ought to take the place of
unwise and ni'nous parsimony.
EDUCATION. '.'
While believing in a comprehensive
system of state education which shall
nieet tbe reasonable wants of every
settlement, I feel bound to condemn
sonic things done under the present
system—more especially the provisiorj
by which the chltttft-n of the wealthiest, and, consequently, least neces*-
sitous, community receive a free higtV
school education at the expense of the
taxpayers, while those of ,'se,trjefs (the
most important element) ai;ejn, many
instances left absolutely without,aijy
provision whatever for the education
of their offspring.
ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE.
Judges are made for the People,—
not the People for the Judges; and
the Legislature should insist upon
such a disposition of the Judges qs
will most conduce to the public welfare. "        . , ; -j
There should also be estabjishea
without delay such a scale of remuneration for' petit jurors and crown
witnesses as will be equitable and just
to all classes of Her Majesty's subjects-.
ISLAND   RAILWAY.
Through the glaring incapacity and
inexplicable chicanery of ..those entrusted willi tbe conduct of affairs, Ill's
Island Railway question probably
never was in a less satisfactory condition than it is to-day.
While I feel assured that there fs-
no disposition on this side of the Gulf
to. sec those on the other side deprived of any possible advantage that
might accrue from the construction of
tbat railway, yet it is quite certain
that any attempt to make it a chargje
either directly or consequentially upon
the Provincial revenue, or to make it
in any way interfere with the completion or terminus of lhe Canadian Pacific Railway, would meet with a very
determined opposition.
OUR FEDERAL RELATIONS: p.
While strongly asserting the Pro>. '
vinclal autonomy, it should oe lhe ainl
of our Government and Legislature
to cherish and maintain relations of a
friendly character with a friendly Federal Administration, and avoid useless
and expensive appeals from ils delib-.
crate and authoritative decisions, as
far as Is consistent with lhe just claims
of lhe country. To maintain atcon-
siderabl'e expense at Ottawa an "Afeeiit;
General" whose services are of doubtful utility, whose eccentricities are
liable to 'place tbe Province in a false
position, and whose extreme sectionalism must disqualify him asarepre*-
sentalive of the whole Province, is;
lo say the very least,- unwise. It is
contrary to lhe genius of our institu-i
tions and unfair lo our constitutional
representatives in lhe Federal Parlia1
ment.
RAILWAY MATTERS OF.NF.RALLY.
The work of constructing tbe Can'-
.idian Pacific Railway*, so long delayed',
is now making satisfactory progress
—although one class of labor employed
is anything but satisfactory—and there
is every reason to hbpe that, before
the Legislature now .about tbbbcon**
stitulcd shall nave ruu its natural course,
lhat railway will span the continent:
Man'.* new measures of a progressive
character will .unclmibtedly be nefces--.
sary, tb meet the altered and ever improving Condition Of tlie country.
Whether one looks to the present extremely unsatisfactory condition of
affairs, superinduced by a too long
term In bffice of unscrupulous men, or
at the not distant future so pregnant
with important results and momentous
possibilities, one is constrained to admit that, tbe supreme epoch in the
history of our Province is near, antl
that if ever there was a time when tbtj
services of the country's best men
were needed to guide lhe ship of state,
il Is now. ,..
It will therefore, he your duty and
your interest to select such representative'' as possess lhe ability, tbe forethought and the energy lo place public
affairs upon such a sound and healthy
basis as will lil tbe Province to enter
upon the new order of things with advantage lo itself and credit to the great
Dominion of which it is destined Id
become so important a part.
There never was—there never nifty' bean election fraught with such important
eousctptcncca — com-euuciircs not only,

Your Obedient Hnnnnt,
.JXO. JtOBSON.   I
New Wektmb»tu.| July 4; 18fi2;       Jyff tl'nui. First I'iigi'.j
her that I should never enjoy a moment's pleasure iu possessing thnt of
which they wero unjustly deprive*.!—
which I never shall. I reminded her
of hor promiso; she flatly told mo she
recalled it.   Well " ho stood before
Randulf, and thero woro tones of passion in bis voico—"I humbled myself
before Mifl3 Conisbrough, I entreated
her to think again, to use her influence
with hor mother, to moot mo half-way,
and help mo to repair the injustice.
I wns refused—with distress it is true
—but most unequivocally. Nor would
sho releaso mo until I had promised
not to urge tho matter on Mrs. Conisbrough, who, I surmise, would be less
stern about it. Miss Conisbrough is
relentless and strong. Sho was not
content with that. She not only lias a
horror of my money, but even of mo,
it appears. She made mo promise not
to seek them out or visit them, liy
dint of hard pleading 1 was allowed to
accompany them homo, and bo formally introduced to her Bistors—-no more.
That is to be tho end of it. I tell you,
because I know you can understand it.
For thu rest of the world I euro nothing, People may call mo grasping and
heartless if they Choose. Thoy may
picture mo enjoying my plunder, whilo
Mrs. Conisbrough and her daughters
nre wearing out their lives in—do you
wonder that I cannot bear to think of
it]'' ho added passionately.
''""•'No*, I don't. It is tho most extra-
o-rdinary thing I ever heard."
*'Yeft think so 1 I am glad you agree
with mo.    Tell me— for I vow I Am so
bewildered by it all that I hardly know
whether I am iu my senses or out of
them—tell mo if there was anything
strange in my proposal to share my
inheritance with them—anything unnatural 1"
"Tho vory reverse, I should say."
"Or in my going to Miss Conisbrough about it, rather than to her
•mother?"
'"No, indeed!"
"It never struck me beforehand that
I was contemplating doing anything
strange nr wrong. Yet Mis3 Conisbrough mado mo fool myself very
wrong. Sho would have it so, and
I own that there is Something about
her, her nature nnd character tire so
truly noble, that I could not but submit.   But I submit undor protest."
*'I am glad you hnve told ine,'1 said
Itandulf reflectively. "Now all my
doubts about you have vanished."
"Could nothing bo dono through
these drawings?" suggested Aglionby.
"Could you not tell Delphine that
someone had seen them who admired
them exceedingly."
"I soo what; you menu,'' said Itandulf, with a smile. "She has great
schemes for working, and selliiiL' her
pictures, and helping them, and so on.
But I havu a better plan than that. I
must work my father round to it, and
then I must get her to see it. She
shall work ns much as she pleases aud
have as many lessons as she likes—
when she is my wife."
Aglionby started again, flushing
deeply. Randulfs words set bis whole
Jjoing into a fever,
'"That is your plan I" said ho in a
low wice.
"Thnt is my plan, which no one but
you knows. However long I have to
wait, hIio shall be my wife."
"I wish you good speed in your
courtship, but I fear you success won't
accomplish my wishes in the matter."
"Miss Conisbrough must have some
reason for tho strange course sho has
taken," said Randulf, "Bo you think
we nro justified in trying to discover
that reason, or tire wo bound not t(.
inquire into it *■"
There wns a long pause. Then Aglionby said darkly:
"1 havo promised."
"But I have not."
Bernard shook his head. "I don't
bcUeve, whatever it may be, that any
ono but Misa Conisbrough is cognizant
of it."
"Woll, let tne uso my good offices
for you, tf ever I havo a chance. If
ever I know them well enough to bo
taken into their confidence, I shall use
my influence on your sido—may I ?''
"You will earn my everlasting gratitude if you do. And if it turns out
that they do want help—that my cousin
Delphino has to work for money, you
will let me know. Remember, ho
added, jealously, "it is my right and
•duty, as their kinsman, to see that
they are not distressed."
"Yes, I know, and I shall not forget you."
Itandulf, whon his guest had gone,
soliloquized silently;
"Tliat fellow is heart and soul on my
side. Ho doesn't know himself whither
he is drifting. I'd liko to take the
odds with any ono, that ho never mar
ries that little dressed-up doll whoso
likeness ho iB now carrying about with
him."
At Yoresett Houbo the winter promised to bo a winter indeed; a "winter
of pale misfortune." Fur three days
aftor her conversation with old Mra.
Paloy, Judith had maintained silence,
whilo her licnrt felt as if it worn slowly
breaking. Sho had revolved a thousand sahomes in her mind. Strange
nnd eerie thoughts had visited her in
lior desolation, Sho loved her two
sisters with nll the love of hor intense
and powerful nature. Sho cherished
them, and always had done; she was
capable of self-immolation for their
Bakes. But her reason, whicli wns as
strong ns her heart (which combiuati
made ho what sho wns), told her that
in this case self-immolation would bo
vain. Rhoda might be left unconscious and happy for the present, but
Delphine must know the truth and
that soon.    Immolation would be ro-
3uired from hor also. Judith shnd-
ered ns she thought of it. When hor
younger sisters casually mentioned
• Randulf Danesdnle'u name, nnd laughed and jo3ted with one another about
him, Judith folt as if somo ono hnd
suddenly dealt her n stab, or a blow,
which took away her breath.
Wns there no help? sho asked herself. Could (his sacrifice by no means
be avoided ? If she kept hor lips forever sealed, sacrificed hor own futuro.
lot thein go tho'it way, and took upon
herself never to loavo, nnd never to
betray tlmt mother who—who resolute
ly refused, evon to herself, to call hor
mother's deed by nny name, repenting,
"It was for our suites, I auppM'; it
was out of lovo for hor children, ns she
thought." Would not that do ? Wore
Delphine and Rhoda to bonr tho punishment for a sin which had boon com-
uiitted before they woro born 1
Moro than once a gleam of hope
crossed hor spirit; sho almost thought
that her plan would answer. Then
camo tho argument:
"No. You must not allow this affair
to go farther. * You must not allow ono
of 'your family to enter that of Sir Ca-
briolle Danesdale, whoso sustained
name and unsullied honor nre his pride
and delight. You would let yonr sister
marry a man, for you know he wishes
to marry her-*-slio all unconscious ns
well ns he of what hung over her.
You might resolve never tu betray tho
secret, but you enn never be perfectly
certain that it will not leak out. Somo
day Itandulf might discover the truth
—and what might he not iu his bitterness do or say'l Besides it would
be wrong; that is all that concerns
you. Do not dully nny lunger with
the chimerical, wicked plan."
She could see no other solution to
tho question. Sho closed hor eyes—
closed he* heart and hardened it
ugainst tho contemplation of that anguish which was to como; and aftor
waiting three whole days, she went to
Delphine un thu nftcriioou uf the
fourth, when the girl wns upstairs with
her painting. Rhoda wns out. Mrs.
Conisbrough wns taking hor afternoon
rest.
Delphine turned a smiling face to
hor sister. Of lato, she had bloomed
out more lovely than over. Neither
cold, nor poverty, nor gloomy prospects had had the power to impair her
beauty nnd ita development. In her
heart sho carried a secret joy which
was life nnd light, hopo nnd riches to
her. She wns going to spend a vory
happy afternoon. But Judith's presenco never disturbed her. Sho called
to her to shut the dour, because the
wind wns cold, nnd to como aud look
at her picture, aud her voice ns she
spoke rung clear as n bell,
"Yes," said Judith, "and I have
something to say to you whicli it would
not bo well for any ono to overhear."
She closed the door nnu". Sat down.
She trembled and felt faint:- sho could
hot stand. It was one thing, and that
was bud enough, to hear tlio horrid
story from other lips; it wns another
—and n ghastly one—to havo tell it
with her uwn to her innocent sister.
To spunk to Delphine about such things
—to lot her see them near—seemed
to Judith to be insulting her. But it
had to Ire done. Sho gathered up her
courage in both hands, as it woro, und
began.
The conversation wns not a long
one. It was begun in low tones,
which grow ever fainter, and move
hesitating. When Judith at last rose
again from her chair, nud looked at
Delphine, the latter looked to her former self exactly what a dead girl looks
compared with one living—as a lily
after n thunderstorm has battered and
shattered and laid it low, in comparison with lhe snnie flower in tho dewy
calm of an early summer morning.
The elder t/irl stood with her white
lips, nnd her fixed eyes, and constrained expression, looking upon the other,
waiting fur her to utter some word.
But nono camo. Delphine—lior face
blanched within its frame of waving
golden hair, hor eyes fixed ns if upon
somo point thousands of miles away,
to which something sho loved hnd
withdrawn itself—was motionless aud
silent.
Judith at last stretched out hor
hands, nnd exclaimed:
"Delphine, if you do nut speak, I
shall go mad! Give mu my due—give
me tbo wretched consolation of bearing you say that I could not have done
otherwise,"
Delphine smiled slightly, and her
gaze came abruptly to earth again.
She saw her sister, and said softly:
"Poor Judith!      Nu.     Ynu could
havo   dono   nothing  elso.    But you
don't expect mo to thank yuu for it,
do yuu ?'
'■Dolphine!''
"You could havo dono nothing. But
you see you had nothing to lose. I
had all tho world—all the world.''
She turned away. Judith wont out of
thu room, awny to hor uwn chamber-
seeing nuthing, hearing nothing. She
locked herself up, and for tho'first
time giving way, cast herself in nn
utter abandonment of* unguish upon
her bed, and buried her face in the
pillow; thinking tbat it'would be good
for her if sho could never sue tho sun
again. If Delphino had known—but
sho did not know—she never should
know, But if she had known—if the
story of her sister's heart for the last
fortnight could havo been laid bare
before her—would sho havo turned
away with a few cold words, ns sho had
done—hugging hor uwn grief—oblivious that others could have any ?
'No, nu! Judith sworo to herself,
with passionate fervor, her sweet sister
could not have been so wrapped, so
engrossed in herself. She should not
know- -it would only add poignancy
to tho anguish bIio was obliged to endure. Tho worst, surely, had been
consummated, but sho did not dure to
think of Delphino alone upstairs.*
Tho worst, morally cunsidorcd, was
perhaps over, but thero wero trials yet
to come, which wore hard to boar.
They heard, as in u tiny country town
everything is hoard, uf Aglionby's do-
partuie for Irkford. Then November
set in, nud the days became shorter,
darker, nud colder. Mrs. Conisbrough
grew more nud more fretful and feoble,
and still talked soinetimos of consulting sumo other lawyer, of disputing
John Aglionby's will, and hold forth
ou Bernard's greed nnd injustice in n
manner whiuh used to send Judith
(lying upstairs to pace nbuutjicr room
with evory fooling in n state of tho
wildest tumult,
It was too cold for Dolphine to
pursue her work upstairs. The girls
mid nothing to du; nothing on which
to spend their energies. When the
few domestic things wore arranged,
thoy had the whole day before them,
with absolutely no pressing occupation
of any kind. Tlio situation grow
hideous nnd ghastly to Judith, She
and hor sisters preserved their physical health by means of tliu regular
walks which, so lung ns it did nut
actiinllv snow or rain, they took daily.
And Delphino had a fitful gnyoty whicli
oppressed her sister, whilo neither
long walks, riot arduous wurk, nor
anything olso, put the faintest flush
into Judith's cheek, nor called any
spontaneous smile to lior lips.
