uurrent Events and Opinions.
It iB not generally known the British authorities have applied to In*
dia a system of education resembling
that of Great Britain, and that the
coming generations ave being taught,
so in the event of the unforseen happening, they  will he competent to
* govern themselves instead of sinking
hack into the anarchy from whieh
tlio British rescued tbe peninsula.
In tbe nine provinces subject to
Grant Britain, there are 1,888,345
children in the elementary schools,
of whom only 103,357 are girls. In
India, the prejudice against female
education is strong, and even the
pagan idea that woman is an inferior
*sex has not yet ceased to influence
the popular mind, Over a quarter
of a million of children are in the
secondary schools; about 20 receiving speoial or technical education
and several thousand additional are
studying in the arts and higher
courses. This is a gratifying state
of affairs for the knowledge of which
the mass of Canadians ave little prepared; but nevertheless the news
will be welcome to all who take a
patriotio interest in the empire.—
Ottawa Free Press.
For some months past real estate
speculators have been in a state of
unmixed uncertainty as to where
the actual or ultimate terminus of
the Canadian Pacific Railway would
bo placed. So far as the contract,
-or agreement between the Dominion
Government and the Province of
British Columbia is concerned, rails
Haiti to Port Moody dissolves the obligation, hut since that harbor waB
made the objective point, tho Canadian Pacific Railway Syndicate has
entertained, or listened to propositions from property holders interested in extending the Hue. One may
suit ones taste or convenience by
calling the additional road an exten
sion, ov branch, but the extension or
branch brings one to the actual terminus all the same, and the terminus may be said to he moveable
hereafter. As mutters stand today,
it would appear from what we can
learn from good authority, tlint honors are divided between Coal Harbor and English Bay, and tbey are
so very close together, that, aside
from the actual town site, what will
help one location will certainly assist
the speedy development of the other.
We are informed by captains of
steam vessels, who navigate these
waters, that the narrows between
English Bay and Port Moody are
serious obstacles to that harbor, and
it is the general impression that the
terminus of the Canadian Pacific
'Railway will come down the coast.
■In this connection, it may be interesting to our readers to learn the
-distances from Coul Horbor and
"English J3ay to Yokohama, Japan,
New York, Boston, Montreal and
Liverpool, as compared with other
places and routes with which these
distributing centers will ultimately
come into active competition. It is
stated on good authority that the
distance between Coal Harbor and
Yokohama, Japan, is 4,374 nautical-
miles; from Coat Harbor to New
York, via Canadian Pucifio Railway,
3,241 miles; to Montreal, 2,862.
Comparing these figures with the
distances from San Francisco to Yokohama, we find thut there is a saving In favor of the Canadian Pacific
Railway terminus of nearly 800
milea; between San Franoisco and
New York, a saving of about 160
milea; and, as between San Fran*
cisco nnd Liverpool, the Canadian
route has the advantage in distance,
via the Canadian Paoifio Railway
over all other rail routes, of about
800 miles. The distance -from Yokohama via San Francisco and New
York to Liverpool, is stated to be
about 12,038; via Coal Harbor or
English Bay, and Montreal, 11,111
miles. We are looking ahead a good
deal when we speak of the opening
lip of the Hudson Bay route, at the
same time there nre many practical
and sotetifio men who firmly beliovo
in this outlet, and who are enth'isi*
astic about the feasibility of the
general plain From Coal Harbor
via the Canadian Pacifio Railway
and Hudson Bay routo to Liverpool
would give a saving of 2,600 over
iho route from San Francisco to the
aatuie point. As the Asiatic trade
with this continent is constantly-on
the increase, the completion of the
Canadian Paoifio Railway will revolutionize freight rates, and the ter*
minus of the road on this coast will
undoubtedly become a port of grent
commercial Importance.— Hesonrces

Saw Mill Betase.
For several months past a machine
haB beon under construction for tho
manufacture of paper pulp from sawdust and other saw mill refuse. An
experimental machine was completed
some time ngo. Sawdust, bits of
lath, shavings, and refuse, known as
"drift- ,,'ood'- were converted into a
pulp in a very short time, .tho product
being equal to any pulp mmufootursd,
The working of the experimental machine was bo satisfactory thut the inventor found no difficulty iu interesting others in the invention. The
inventor having completed his ma*
ohine, made pulp with it to his antia-
maohine is cylindrical inf shape and
stands on the end. It is 14 feet and
.4 inches in heighTand 6 feet 2 inches
in diameter in the clear. .The gearing is on top of the cvlnder. Tha
sawdust is placed hisiao ifcj cylinder
-—1,600 pounds being a 'charge—-and
it is reduced to pulp by rollers traveling around the inner surface of the
oylinder, the principle being the same
of a wagon rolling ovor a plank road
or the chewing of a bit of wood.
These rollers nre 200 in number and
attached to the shaft, hang on to whnt
is known as a stop at the top of tho
maohine, rollers, shafts, etc., making
a total of 20,600 pounds hanging from
the step. This apparatus presents a
novelty in mechanism, the liko of
whioh was never seen before. The
entire machine wuighs 68,200 pounds;
15 horso power wDl operate tht maohine perfectly, and the steam pressure required is from 60 to 80 poundB.
Ahout threo hours time wiil convert a
charge of 1,600 pounds of sawdust
into pulp, the product being 1,200
pounds. A Times representative was
present when the machine was in operation, aud examined the pulp after
being taken from the machine. It
showed a fine, long fiber, nnd a person could hardly believe, without
witnessing the operation, that it had
been made from sawdust. The patentee has an apparatus for bleaching the
pulp. The product ia cleansed automatically as it leaves the machine and
iB carried direct to the bleacher, where
it iB rendered as whito as snow at an
expense not exceetltm; 50 cents per
ton. Tho invention will wurk a revolution in paper manufacture.1 Bis
experiments show that a fine quality
lottor paper, as well us book, news,
and wrapping stock can be made from
the products of the machine direct,
thus doing away with the expense of
beating engine and other ponderous
machinery common to papor mills.
It has already produced writing paper
in a variety of shades, as well as all
other grades capable of being manufactured from rags, jute, straw, or any
othor material,, and hiB productions
nio in every way equal. As tho raw
material can be' had for carting, the
manufacture of  paper from, sawdust
Sulp effects a wonderful saving. —iff. Y,

The Wrong Way.
Ho entered the office of tho Superintendent of Police with a black eyo,
a skinned wise, and other evidence of
total depravity, and without waiting
to be asked whether he had beon
knocked down by an ice wagon or run
over by a butcher cart, he led off with:
"It was off up this way, on aoino
street or other, and I was nover so'
misused in my life. I'm a square man,
and all I want ia a square dtal and a
fair show."
"Well!"
"Well, I aat t^re drinking a /'lass
of beer, when in comus a chap with
eyas like peeled onions and a noie
which gave him away forty rods off.
He had two cockroaches in a box, and
he was a tricky man."
"What was his game?"
"It was to draw a circle about two
feet across ou the table with a piece of
chalk, and then dump tho coukroaches
in the center. He'd select oue aud I
the othor, and whichever roach ran
over the circle tirst took the money.
Say, it lookod liko a square deal."
"Yes." s,
"Well, I put down a dollar and selected the cockroach with a sort of
wart orer his left eyo. The insects
clawed around for awhile and acted
liko cats in a strange garret. Then
mine squinted his right eye and made
a break. Ht saw the cold lunch on
the table ten foet away, and ho was
after it"
"I see."
"HoVl got within six inches nf the
chalk-lino and was juat a-climbing for
Limburger choose, when tho stranger
he una and hauls off with a beer glass
and Knocks my roach into the middle
of next January."
"What fori"
"Why, he claimed, that I hod rubbed my end of the table with taffy! I
never did it! Stranger, I'tn Squaro—
square as a hole in a grindstone. I
grabbed the stakes and he grabbed me.
He got the money and I got a licking.
Oan yon do anything for me?1'
"No more than to advise you to get
a warrant."
"Si) u ire, I can't doit. I'm on my
way to Ohieago and can't tarry to fool
with the law. If that's the best yon
can do then, good-bye. I'm a square
man and nover kick if I have half a
show, I don't care particularly for
tho dollar, nor for this bluck eye and
abused nose, bnt sny, if that wasn't
the brutnlest, cold-blondest way to
servo a poor cockroach thou may I be
called a kicker]"—Detroit Free Press.
Italy reports a remarkablo decline in
the numbor of fresh onses of cholera,
and it may ho hoped that the moat
ready material iti NnpleB having already'
succumbed tho advent of cooler weather will enable the authorities to exert
their preventive measure with success. In ltomo the heat in October
rarely reaches 80 ° in tlio shade, ond
over muoh of the north the first hoar
frost occurs. This cool weathor favors
tho disappearance of the disease,though
it by no means ensures it. In Russia
one uf the very worst epidemiea of cholera occurred in midwinter, but the
fiopulatimis affected wero dirty in their
tabits and habitations. It is in similar, if unt quito so great, disregard of
cleanliness that the danger lies of
cholera surviving tho winter In Southern Europe, and reaching America

-Wednesday Morning,  Oct. it, 18M.
The latest number of the Scientific Amencan contains an illustration of the Keely gun witli wliich
such wonderful results were recently
obtained. It is declared that the
gun is. nothing more than an air
gun, and the inter-atomic ether is
compressed air! From the first the
Scientific American 1ms pronounced
the Keely motor a fraud, and we
are inclined to think it is right.
On the 9th inst. a vote was taken
on the Scott Temperance aot in the-
counties of Simcoe, Out., nud Stun-
Btead, Que. In both counties the
act was carried by substantial majorities. Thn majority in Stanstead
is 247, and in Simcoe it is said to
be over 1000. These two additional victories show unmistakably that
people in the east are rapidity becoming impressed with the need of
firm measures looking towards the
suppression of this cursed traffic.
Protection Needed.
The Nanaimo Free Press draws
attention to the miserable class of
boats furnished by the marine department to lighthouse keepers on
this coast. Storms on the straits
often come up with surprising sud-.
denness, and are sometimes extremely severe. These boats are
absolutely useless in such emergencies, as was shown iu tlie case of
the saiidheads, when the mon who
trusted themselves to the lighthouse
boat perished. It seems to us there
sbould certainly be something clone
not only to prevent the recurrence
of such disasters, but to placo lighthouse keepers in a position to be
able to render valuable assistance
whenever, marine disasters occur
within reach. The shipping on this
coast is large and important, and it
will be considerably increased when
the Canadian Pacific 'Hailway begins operation. With proper lifeboats at the lighthouses, it might be
possible to save many precious lives
in case of shipwreck, and we heartily endorse the suggestion of tbe
Free Press in this direction.
A Queer Story.
The Ottawa Free Press publishes
au interview with a person whom it
styles a prominent Tory politician
in which tho causo of Sir John
Macdonald's hasty exit to England
is discussed. It is stated that there
is more tban public business or personal health in the visit, and the
following curious explanation is givon : Not long ngo Lord Claude Hamilton wrote a letter iti the interest
of the Grand Trunk Kailway, with
which he is connected. The letter
contained some severe reflections up
on the C. P. R., and incidentally
blamed- tho government because it
had permitted the syndicate to acquire such large privileges and become a huge monopoly. Now, Lord
Claude Hamilton is related to the
governor-genera), aud it is said that
he wus a guest at Kideau Hall at
the time he wrote tbe obnoxious
letter. The affair, it is said, h
given great offence to Sir John. He
induced Hon. Peter Mitchell to answer Lord Hamilton's letter, and
Mitchell went for the lord without
gloves. Among other things he
slapped Lord Landsdowi* because
he permitted so unpatriotic a letter
to be "dictated from the convenient
shelter of Kideau Hall." Sir John,
it is said, will never permit himself
to be struck over tho shoulder of
anybody olse, nnd matters have be
come so warm that he has left the
country in wrath. The story is ra
ther sensational, and does more credit to the imagination than tho com
mon sense of the interviewer.
Is H Tract
The following statement, purporting to bo a special telegraphic
dispatch from this city, appeared
in the Victoria Standard;
Thia town Is full of rumors to-day of
a not very complimentary character tithe Local Government at James Day.
The most important ono is that the syndicate formed last summer, and composed
Erlncipally of jnembers of tho locnl min-
itry, including tlio Hon. Provincial
Secretary, and a Victoria business firm
for the purpoae of purchasing the Hastings Mill timber lease for speculative
purposes, In view of the C. P. It. being
extended to Coal Harbor, have beon
granted a new lease to tho vast area
covered by the mill lease, and this too
without the usual and necessary publicity. The old lease it is said expires in
a abort time, and this new one will enable them to hang on to tha lands until
something definite is known nbout the
final terminus. Thuy aro, tt is alleged,
getting hard up for cash, as the agrcu-
mant of purchase from tlie Hastings Mill
Company calls for the payment of twenty-five thousand dollars every threo
months, nnttl the whole amount is paid,
at 12 per cent in'crest. Thia will explain the sale of lota at the town of
Baitings and their persistent but futile
•fforts to boom that section, lt ia also
ouirwtly reported bote, with every indi-
** I truth, that one of tha weak
i of parliament hu been given
five acrea ef land in the vicinity-of Coal
Harbor by the syndicate, in order to give.
him strength aud stamina when it comes
to voting on certain matters at the next
session of the legislature. He is known
to he a poor man, uot able to buy one
acre at the price asked for land there,
yet five acres, it is said, have recently
been registered in his name. This new
lease of land which the government has
granted itself will possibly bear dummy
signatures hut cannot mislead the public.
This dispatch bears no signature,
and may bo cither true or false. It
was, apparently, sent by some person in this city whose interests conflict with tho interests at Ooal Harbor, and who does not care to have
his namo made known. Be tbis as
it may, Tub Columbian wishes to
remark, first, that tho charges contained in it are very serious, and are
such as no person should be allowed
to make unless lie is prepared to
back them up by sufficient proof.
We do not know whether any of
tho ministers are interested in tbo
syndicate wliich has lately purchased tho Hastings mill or uot.
We believe a minister of tho crown
may with perfect propriety acquire
hinds or other property, and muy
administer his estate tn any legiti
mate way thau seems to him best, so
long us he does not make use of his
official position to further bis own
personal interests. This ho can-*
not do with impunity; and if it
can be shown that the provincial
secretary or any other member of
the govornment has so fur forgotten
his duty and his obligations as to
uso bis position for personal ends,
The: Columbian will pronounce tlmt
mau unworthy of public confidence.
It is impossible for us too closely to
guard this point. It is tn be feared
that it has often been lost sight of,
and that both private character and
the public interest have suffered
damage. Wo beliovo it would not
he improper to extend tlie Hastings Mill Co's. lease for a limited
period. That lease wus granted
many yoars ago, when tho Umber
of this country was commercially
of very little value and could
scarcely be givon way. During tbe
dark days of this district, when
property went down and employment could not be had, the Hustings Mill and tho Moodyville Mill
afforded relief to many u deserving pioneer. These industries kept
on operating whon tho rest of tbe
mainland sat still in almost hopeless despondency. Since these days
times have greatly changed. The
sings of progress and prosperty are
everywhere discerned, and both land
and timber have become valuable.
But thero is a large quantity of
timber still uncut on the Hastings
Mill Co's. lease, and we arc of opinion that a reasonable time should bo
allowed the company to have tliat
timber removed. Tbo despatch inti-
mutes that the now manipulators of
tbis mill property have not been
able to produce a boom ut Coal
Harbor, and hud to sell Hastings
lots to keep them from financial
embarrassment. This is surely nonsense. The Hustings lots belonged
to the government, and whether
government members were interested or not in Coal Harbor, tbey
could not take government funds
and apply them to their private
business! We are afraid the insinti-
a tor gives himself away in his anxiety to strengthen his position. Tbe
remark respecting n weak-kneed
member may ot- may not be true,
but we shall ask for very substantial proof beforo wu shall permit it
to influence our opinions. The member referred to must be Mr. Jas.
Orr, one of the representatives of
tins district. If it be true that he
has accepted reul estate at Coal
Harbor for the purpose of influencing bis vole, ho deserves the scorn
and contempt of all men. If he
has not, the miserable' sneak who
uttered this vilo insinuation* deserves to spend the remainder of his
days in tho chaingang. We hope
Mr. Orr will not allow this thing to
pass without notice. A committee
of the house should be appointed to
ascertain whether or not the independence of .parliament has been
tampered with, and whether such
statements may be published without incut-ring punishment. Wo
must guard tho purity of our representative institutions, and we must
defend those who serve us with fidelity.

Pacific Oarriaob Workh. — The
steamer Idaho yesterday brought over
a large lot of material for the Pacific
Carriage Works, of this city. This
material consists of hubs, spokes,ailos,
and other manufactured parts of wagons and buggies. It wob imported di*
root from the factories in Ontario, and
one cannot help being struck with the
superior quality of the wood used in
theae things. The materials will be
finished and put together here. Messrs.
Johnson & Smith, proprietors of the
works, aro now prepared to turn out
every description of rig, from a wheelbarrow to a heavy stage couch.

The Injunction.-—Aotion has been
commenced against the city corporation at the suit of Mr. Alex. Ewen,
and a notice of motion for an injunction to restrain the corporation from
selling Merchant Square has been served for to-morrow before the Chief Justice. The papers were served at half-
past 7 o'clock on Monday night, and
an appearance would have to be entered at Victoria at noon to-morrow. In
order to do this the whole case would
havo to be prepared before the steamer
left yesterduy morning. It waB found
impossible to do this, and affidavits
were prepared nnd sent down asking
fur an adjournment until Friday. We
cannot very well understand why this
matter Bhould have gone to Victoria nt
all. There is a supreme court judge
in this city, and wo liavo at hand the
whole judicial machinery. To take it
to Victoria is to involve tho city corporation in largely increased expenses
which the citizens will Imve to pay.
Too Too.—Tho naval sham fight
which came off at Beacon Hill yeaterday haa been a seven days' wonder
among the newspapers of Victoria.
Every day it has afforded a fresh and
gushing paragraph ; and it has been a
matter of some wonder to observe how
these paragraphs have been increasing
in length and vigor. First, the two
morning papers .timidly announced
Unit il was reported that a sham fight
would take place shortly, and the evening-papers echoed that it would be
shortly. Next day tho important additional fact was ascertained that the
fight would bo somewhere in the vicinity of Beacon Hill, and that guns
and pistolo and swords nnd things
would really be fired off! This statement caused the little papen to throw
up their hands in ecstaoy, and une of
them even ventured all nlone to suggest that it would be too awfully jolly
for anything. For a whole week thia
stylo of paragraphing continued, until
on Monday tho item of two lines in
tho morning papers had grown to near
ly half a column, and the evening
echoes were fairly frantic with suppressed wonder. It is to be hoped tho
Viotoria press did not burst before the
awful spectacle really presented itself.
It is not overy day one can witness a
sham fight on the Pacific coast,, and
the occurrence was undoubtedly a legitimate find for the papers. But they
ran it into the ground long before the
freshness should have left it. This is
one of the misfortunes of too much
competition. Victoria is just about
large enough to support two daily papers, but when it coines to four thore
isn't news enough sometimes to go
round. They doublo thoir advertisements (at least some of thom do)
to fill up space and savo cost of composition, and engage in periodical fits of
quarrelling over a circulation the actual extent of whioh not ono of thom
has courage onough to make public.
If you would have appetite, flesh,
color, strength, and vigor, take Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, which will confer them ou
yon in rapid succession.

Langley Protests.
On Monday, the 13th inst,, a public
meeting was held at Langley Prairie
to consider the present unsatisfactory
mail service and tu endeavor to obtain
a moro suitable arrangement, Mr.
Robt. McKee occupied the chair, nnd
aftor a full discussion tho following
resolutions woro put to the meeting
and carried:
Proposed by Mr. A. Bovill, second
ed by Mr. H, Davis, that tho present
mail service is most unsatisfactory for
the following reasons: The distance by
river from New Westminster tu Langley is only 10 miles, and by road 10
miles; and whereas now our mail goes
beyond by rail to Yale, and is unly delivered by return, by whioh it is carried over a distance of about 150
miles, a needless delay in transit of 3
days is caused.
Proposed by Mr. J. M, Johnson,
seconded by Mr. R. OakeB, that a
mail service twice a week liy road
would be tho best fer this part, and
tho most easily worked, because there
is already a mail carried to Mr. Innes',
at Alma, and the distance from this
to Fort Langley is only 0 miles.
Proposed by Mr. N. Larmer, seconded hy Mr. J. Lahimer, that a copy
of tho abovo be forwarilod to Mr. R,
Wallace, of Victoria, and Mr, J. A. R,
Homer, M. P., of New Westminster,
respectfully requesting their assistant
to bring about tho alteration as speedily ns possible.

Mr. G. B. Wright has a considerable force of men on tho east side of the
Columbia rivor, extending his wagon
road up the Illecillewaut river. He iB
expecting to meet the road party from
the road side about fifteen miles out,
when there wfll bo direct wagon and
sleigh connection with the end of the
track of the Central Pacific Railway,
in the Kicking Horse Pass. He iB
still employing all the men who offer
for chopping or grading. A bar has
been struck above the Little Dalles,
about teu miles from Eagle Pass, on
which, we are assured upon the beat
authority, ten or twelve men are working out good wages. Sume men came
down from there tu the crossing for
provisions and brought considerable
gold dust. We hear numerous complaints about the detention of freight,
aa well aa extortionate charges, along
the line of railway, and understand the
company offer as an excuse the scarcity
nf engines, etc. Now we have been
credibly informed that no later than
last week a " special car" whs run up
to the Black Canyon with the Honorable JoBeph William Trutch and his
brother John, auditor to the company,
and two attendants, ns well as a son to
Mr. Onderdonk, and three doga belonging to the government agent. The
honorable gentleman and his escort
were out on a hunt near Oherry Creek,
where it was supposed the bracing
mountain air would recuperate overworked officials. It Would appear the
"high jinks" must have their "good
time," no matter whether the people
who are paying high rates are accommodated or not The country is getting tired of this sort of thing and are
anxiously looking for relief.

Clinton, Oct. 8. •— The supreme
court was held at the court house Sept.
30th, Mr. Justice Walkem presiding.
There was only one criminal case
brought up. Livingstone of Alexandria, a Baloon keeper, was charged by
nn Indian with firing at him with e
shotgun. The evidence uf the Indian
was rather conflicting and the Grand
Jury found no bill. The 150 and vicinity have been a little notorious fur
Indian liquor supplying and China
opium dens. The Grand Jury brought
the matter prominently before the
court and consequently Judge Harrison laid the weight of the law ou one
of these dens. There was one appeal
case, Capt. Martley vs. the deputy
commissioner of lands and works in
the case of granting wnter privileges,
The court sustained the commissioner's
decision. One civil case, Pntrick Gin-
glaas vs. P. Park, who sued the latter
for wages. The accounts of both
plaintiff and respondent were clipped
considerably, leaving a balance in favor
of Mr. Ginglau of ftG. Mr. Eherts
-for plaintiff; Mr. McColl of N. W, for
defendant, A few weeks ago an Indian at the 150 struck a Chinaman un
the head with a club. Tho Chinaman
died a few days after aud the Indian
.was arrested at. Lytton by Sergt. Lindsay. Judge Harrison, the Sergeant,
aud Dr. Offerhaus left here by special
express to examine the caso. A post
mortem examination was held and the
Indian was committed fur trial at the
next assizes nt Lytton, Oot. 18th.
Judge Harrison at the same time fined
the Chinaman who owned the cabin at
whioh the murder was committed 9120
and costs for supplying opium and
liquor to Indians; also a Chinaman
who was looking on the game, 920.
The cause of the murder was a gambling game. The Indian alleges he
was robbed and wreaked his vengeance
on a Chinaman who took no part in
the affair. It is desirable that the law
should be vigorously enforced on all
gambling places, white and yellow.

Hanlan and Beach.
The Glasgow Mail hns the following
with regard to the Hnnlnn-Beach race:
—After waiting for the Inst five weeks
for somo details of thu great race for
the championship of the world between Edward Hanlau and Win.
Beach up -m the Parramatta River, wo
are nt last ablo to give an account of
tlio struggle gathered from Australian
papers. The interest which the meeting between tho champion and Beach
evoked in thia country was-eompletely
dwarfed by that manifested in Australia, and for a loug time previous to
tho auspicious 10th of. August the excitement in all quarters wan intense.
Roach was, however, thought lo have
but a poor chance against Hanlan, and
the latter was backed tu win large
sums at 2 to 1. Roth men, after a
lengthy period of training, were reported iu hest of health, and nothing
was spared by either to get th/i best
boats possiblo. From an early hour
on tlit day of the contest crowds
flocked to the scene uf the race, and
the banks of thb winding Parramatta
woro packed with sightseeiB, and itia
estimated that at, least 70,000 persons
witnessed the struitgle. Steamers followed tlm race in great numbers. The
government sleam launch, which accommodated n number of members of
parliament, wns placed at tho disposal
of the umpire, Mr. P. J. Clarke, a
well-known judge of rowing in the
colony. The course, starting from a
place known ns Charity Point, was
threo milea and threo hundred yards
in length, and with a brisk westerly
breejie'blowing tho Bouthorn shoro wns
considered the botter. In toBsing for
stations Beach won and chose this side.
Soon after four o'clock the mon were
ready, and no lime wns lost, as starting by mutual consent they dashed
away simultaneously. Hanlan rowed
in the beat form, and for a quarter of
a mile thoro was little to choose between them. Hnnlmt quickened and
rapidly shot to the front, gottingatwo-
longtlm' lend, which advantage he held
easily up to the mile point, which they
wore timed to have reached iu 6 minutes 0 seconds, A quarter of a mile
further on Hanlan had increased hia
lead to nearly four lengths and wns
sculling easily, apparently without
much effort; but an open point of the
river had now to be crossed, and the
water was much rougher, both men
having a difficulty in keeping their
boats steady. All went well, however,
until Beach's steumer, the Tomki,
headed out into mid-stream and right
across the tract of Hanlan, who rowed
right up to the vessel before he was
aware of the danger. Beach had
meanwhile drawn closer to him, but
the champion put on a tremendous
spurt and shot past the bows of the
steamer and again left Beach four
lengths in the rear. Again Beach
slowed down, and to all the onlookfrs
it appeared as if Hanlan had the race
in hand; but after going another quarter of a mile Beach put on a magnificent spurt and rapidly overhauled
Hanlan, who was in the former's water, and going alongside the sculls were
for a moment locked. Hanlan appealed for a foul, but Beach, clearing
his right hand scull, pulled away and
Boon put five lengths between his boat
and Hanlan's. The American restart*
ed, but was clearly distressed, nnd
although he made repeated attempts
to overhaul his opponent, Beach responded to every spurt, aud eventually passed the winning Sag half a
dozen lengths in front. Haitian finished the more distressed of the two,
and immediately appealed fur a foul,
but the umpire gave the race to Beach,
alleging that Hanlan wu in tha latter's
coune when the foul occurred, The
time given was 20 min. 28 sees. Beach
was hailed with immense enthusiasm
on his return to Sidney, a meeting of
his admirers being convened to meet
him on his arrival. Hanlan and his
conqueror met the following day, and
the Canadian iB reported to have Baid
tliat Beach was the better man.

The W. ft T. U. and the Liquor
Traffic at Chilliwhack.
Editor Columbian.—It Is well known
that such is the prevalent temperance
sentiment at Chilliwhack that no liquor*
dealer haB yet been able to obtain a
licenso to sell intoxicants in the municipality. Recently, however, it has become no secret that illicit liquor-selling
waa being carried on at what is known
aa the Bartlett Hotel, at Centreville, and
worse atill, by the attraction of cards
and beer, even minora were there being
led astray from the way in which they
should _> Naturally enough, parents
who have -ova growing up felt indignant
at tliis be \ invasion upon the peace and
sanctity of their homes, and their Indignation was the more aroused when it
was known that on the occasion of the
late agricultural ahow one of the liquor-
vendors who was thus tempting the
youth of the place waa a woman and a
niotherl
The W. C. T. U. of Chilliwhack accor-
dingly determined to bring the offenden.
to justice, and so manifest their faith in
temperance by their works. A complaint was laid against Mrs. Bartlett
and Mr. Calkins for having sold intoxicating drinks without a license on the
2nd and 3rd insts. * and the trial, whieh
brought out an unusual gathering of
ladies as well as gentlemen, took place
nt tho Chilliwhack court house on Thursday the 10th inst., before the reeve, D.
McGillivray, and A. C. Wells, Esqa.
Indeed, it iB no exaggeration to affirm
that uo suoh a acene has ever been witnessed in the history of this proviuce,

occasion. The court house was full, but
oue half of those present were ladies.
Tho agent of the W. C. T. U. was Mr.
G. W. Chadsey, who acted aa prosecutor and examined the witnesses, and tt
is only due to him to Bay that he acted
his part well and ably represented his
fair clients. ■*
Mr. Calkins1 case was first heard but
did not occupy much time as he acknowledged his offense. Mi's. Bartlett, how*
ever, asserted her ignorance as to the
different kinds of liquor, except whiskey,
which, she said, she could identify by
color and smell, so she pleaded "not
guilty." Witnesses came forward and
completely rebutted her statement and
proved her guilty, by declaring that they
had asked her for beer at the hotel upon
the occasion aforementioned, and she
had sold it to them. This left the mag*
istrates with no alternative but to impose a fine each upon Calkins and Mrs.
Bartlett, whioh with the license fee and
costs amounted to ?150. The court reprimanded the offenders justly, not only
ior their infraction of the law—which
they warned them not to repeat—bnt for
their reckless disregard ofthe feelings
of others by the demoralizing practices
which they had introduced in the settlement. The ladies who had come forward in the interests of law and order
to prosecute the evil-doers were highly
complimented and their services in he-
half of the peace and prosperity of the
community were acknwledged and appreciated by the court.
Indeed the noble stand taken by tho
W. C. T. U. of Chilliwhack, upon this
occasion, in repelling this intrusion upon
the sacroduoas of their hemes nud upon
the morals of the community, is deserving of all praise and may well encourage others, to go and do likewise in behalf of (imi, Heme and Native Land.

Tub Kffkcts ok Whiskkv.—The effects of whiskey are always evil, ami
those who feed upon alcoholic stimulants, vainly endeavoring to cure coughs
and consumption, but nurse a viper.
Hagynrd's Pectoral llilfiatn is a remedy
that is always reliable for all throat,

KWt FROM AU PARTS OF THE WMLI.
Berlin, Ont. 7.—The mission of the
Portuguese Enwy who recently arrived
for the purpose^)! urging upon the Government the claims of Portugal to the
Congo country haa completely failed.
London, Oct. 8.—It is reported tlmt
there were serious dissensions in to-day's
session of the English cabinet. The Rt.
Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, President of
the Board of Trade, denounced as cowardly the proposed compromise on the
Franchise bill, Mr. Chamberlain was, in
his turn, taken to task for the bitterness
of hiB speech at Hanley last night, in
whicli he sneered at compromise and insisted that the Franchise bill be'forced
through without concilliating the House
of Lords by first introducing a Redistribution bill. He was told that his violence of language was not only undignified in a member of the ministry, but it
was mischievous in its tendency, as it
could only result in stiffening the opposition of Lord Salisbury and hia party to
all measures of reform.
London, Oct. 8.*—It seems quite certain now that England will soon have
anothsr African war upon her hands.
Thia time the troubles oome from the
south ot the eontinont, instead of the
north, ss in the Soudan tangle, and the
English base of operation will be the
Cape Colony, instead of Egypt. The
continual encroachment of tne Boen
upon the natives and settlers in Beohu-
analand and Zululand arc held to be a
sufficient cause for England to wage war
upon Uw' Transvaal. The treaties between H^tUnd and tlie countries named
make li Imperative upon England to
forcibly interfere in certain oases, and
many politicians here, insist that a case
demanding interference has now arisen.
This is the tone of several leading London papers, and about half the members
of the ministry are said to be of a similar opinion. The Conservative papers
say thai tiie whole excitement about tbe
Boers and the Transvaal is a trick to
withdraw attention from tho government's blundor in Egypt. Meanwhile
the Transvaal side of the story has nevor
been told in print. While President Km*
ger and the rut of the delegation from
the Boer republic'were here last sprint*,
trying to get justice from Earl Derby,
the London papers, instead of giving
intelligible accounts of their grievances
and desires, contented themselves with
deriding those Dutchmen from Africa,
criticizing the cut of their cuts, aud
noting that tbey drank tea and remained
at home with their wives during the
evening, instead of drinking champagne
aud going elsewhere. Jn order to Bee
the other Bide of the shield your corres-
Sondent called this evening upon Dr.
iarke, an eminent practitioner in London, who spent some yoars of his life in
Southern Africa, and to whom the Vol*
kraad of the Transvaal republic recently
sent a formal vote of thanks for having
championed the cause of the Boers
against the slanders of interested En*
glishmen. Dr. Clarke said: "It should
be known that the Transvaal republic
has formally and officially disclaimed
responsibility for ths marauding in Beoh-
uanaland aud Zululand. The marauders
are not citizens of the Transvaal, but of
little so-called republics, founded on unoccupied land by .any emigrant who
chooses to pitch his tent there, in true
patriarchies! fashion, Some of them
are Boers, but they are beyond the control of the Transvaal authorities. The
Transvaal is an immense region, and if
Its frontiers, uetween Bechuanaland on
the west and Zululand on the east, were
strictly guarded, it would require a
standing army,such as Uw peaceful fanners ot the Transvaal have neither the
means nor the inclination to maintain.
It is infamous, Dr. Clarke continued, to
make the Transvaal government answerable for nutters so utterly beyond their
control. The Transvaal people respeot
the convention entered into with England. They are grateful to England
tor the justice done to them in the mat*
ter of boundaries, tardy though it -was,
but there la another thing whioh England
ought to know by this time—tbey will
resist to the death any attempts at
English dictation.
Canton, Miss., Oct. 9.—A barrel of
whiaky exploded in a Baloon here yeBterday from spontaneous combustion.
Philadelphia, Oct. 9.—It is Bald that
the paper trade ia in a ruinous condition,
owing to the government's embargo on
the importation of rags. The* manufacturers will hold a meeting at Cleveland
on October loth, when prices will doubtless bo advanced.
Arousvillk, N. Y., Oct. 9.—Charles
Van Devere, amateur balloonist, made
an asceiiBion in hia balloon last evening
and waa lost to sight In six minutes.
Chattanooga, Oct 9. — People are
flocking to the new silver mines in Murray County, Georgia, It is said that ore
has been found at a depth ot eleven feet
tbat assays a dollar to the pound.
Nashville, Oct. 9.-—A Mormon family
from Lewis Co. passed through the oity
yesterday en route west. A boy and a
girl aged 10 and 12 ^respectively, were
harnessed in a small cart containing their
earthly possessions. The ankles of the
children were swollen and bleeding. The
father and mother each carried a child.
Washinqton, Oct. O.—The removal
of the electric lighting apparatus in the
Capitol shows that the building is iu a
most untidy condition on account of billions of insects whioh the brilliancy of
the electric light attracted, and whose
skeletons are piled up in heaps all over
the recesses of the roof.
Havana, Oot. 9.—The situation of the
army owing to its suspension of monthly
pay is pitiable. Tho soldiers have received uo money for six mouths, and
some have hail uono for a much longer
time. The officers arc at the mercy of
the usurers to obtain tho necessaries of
life for their families. The civil and
military polico sre also unpaid, In
several of tho interior towns the troops
have token food hy force. Forty tins
imported by the steumer City of Washington as containing lard were seized and
found to contain opium.
Paiiw, Oct. 17.—The Figaro saya: Tiie
Chinese force defeated at (.'lm waa only
a column of the left wing of army invading Tonquin, It explains tho slaughter
of 3,000 Chinese by the fact that no
quarter was given or taken, and no prisoners taken. The right column, which
is passing along the river Songeau, is
directed against Hong Hoa, in TicnJgo-
naut.   It asserts French soldiers in Ton-
3nin are only 4,000 effective men, and
eclaret tho Chinese Invasion, if not
arrested, threatens to overwhelm the
French, and it is necessary that not a
mere reinforcement but an army be sent
to their assistance.
London, Oct. 17.—A dispatch from
Tien Tang says in au Interview, the viceroy asserted that two battles were fought
at Ktnng midway between Lang Soon
and Bacnlnh, one resulting in tho defeat
of the Chinese aud tlie other in the defeat of tho Frenoh. The losses to the
Frenoh are co'isiderable, and those of
the Chineso heavy. Advices from Foo
Chow state that a Min river pilot expects that all Fron.h ships have left Mat-
son for Port Arthur.
Alexandra, Oct. 17.—The expenses
of the Nile expedition increase dally,
aud it will probably cost England £10,*
000,000.
Wadyiulfa, Oct. 17.—Tho steamer
Fervs, with forty row-boats on hoard,
has arrived at Dongola, Osman Marrad-
din, an inhabitant of Kortes, has arrived
hore from Khartoum, having been fourteen days on the way. He was present
at Khartoum during the w hole of the
siege and saw Gordon capture a quantity
of guns and rifles of the rebels,   Ho says
the road from Khartoum to Senear is
free of rebels. Gordon's steamers, after
bombarding Berber, Dfelyeer and Minnie
returned in safety to Khartoum. Kasli-
mil Pasha has undertaken to occupy
Berber with a force which Gordon was
totting in readiness at the time when
larriuden left Mahide to come to Shalt,
ouly six days' journey from Khartoum,
but on hearing of the insurrection at
Gob el Deir was forced to turn back,
Before starting he summoned the tribesmen and villagers to accompany him,
but very fow obeyed. They would rather
remain loyal to the Khedive, as Mahdi
had left Mohammed Abdel Kadjer in
command at El Abeid with only 5,000
troops. Bakara tribesmen and inhabit
ants of Geb el Deir, joined by 100 Egyptian troops, made an attack on El Obeid
and captured a number of slaves and
cattle. The attacking party waa so
much encouraged by tlie success that
they threatened to renew the asaault.
Paris, Oct. 17.—30,000 reinforcements
with stores leave Toulon for Tonquin
within a fortnight.
Cairo, Oct. 18.—An Arab from Mahdi's camp has arrived at Dongola. He
reports much aieknees among the Mahdi's
forces and defection of tribes at Mahdi's
rear still continues.
St. pKTERsnuna, Oct. 18.—Six officers
of the army were sentenced to death
early in the week for political offences.
They were executed to-day at the St.
Petersburg citadel. Besides them there
were two women who paid the death
penalty. One was Mad. Walkenstein,
the other Mary Fegnen, the daughter of
a priest. The only persons who witnessed the execution were the ministers of
justice aud the interior, and the prison
.officers.
Paris, Oct. 18.—In the chamber of
deputies to-day the Marquis DeRoyers
interpolated the government regarding
the economic crisis. He demanded the
same protection for the agricultural as
for the manufacturing industry. Ferry
replied that the government were equally
solicitous for both industries. The truth
of this position, he declared, was shown
by the proposed increase of the tariff on
cerealB. He thought the present time,
however, inopportune for discussing thia
subject, and therefore moved that the
order of the day be pure and simple,
Adopted; 259 to 173. Meline, minister
of agriculture, will amend the bill increasing the duties .on foreign live stock
so as to make the duty on oxen 50 francs
per bead, sheep fl francs, and swine 10
francs. He will also support the demand
of Counsel-General Aisne, tliat the government shall levy a duty of two francs
per hundred weight upon wheat, and
four francs per miudred weight upon
flour. The French press iB absorbed in
the discussion of protection duties. The
Ilepublique. Francaise aays the economic
crisis through which France is passing
can only bo cured by the sovereign remedy of an increase ot custom duties.
Such increase, it contends, will ameliorate distress, and the agricultural industry will lower tho price of transportation
and make more abundant circulation of
money throughout the entire interior
country. Rappel declares that Meline's
project will-find lessening support when
it iB seen that it will increase tlie price
of bread aud meat. The deputies will
think twice before approving it. The
radicals Bay the great majority of commission on protective duties are favorable
to Meline's proposal.
Winnu'eo, Oct. 18. —A report has just
reached the city that Louis Roil, the
leader of the Red River rebellion, waa
ahot ou Thursday near Prince Albert.
N. W. T. Few will regret the end he
so justly deserved The cruel death of
poor Scott haa at lost been revenged,
foil, in hia day, was a tyrant of the
worst form.
Winnipeg, Oct. 18.— News of the
death of Major Crorier, of the mounted
police, haB reached the city, and creates
great excitement. The daily papera containing tbe account of the massacre are
in great demand. Fuller particulars are
hourly expected. It is feared that au
uprising of Indians and half-breeds will
take place in the disaffected districts of
the territories. It ia uow difficult to foretell what may be the result of the unbooked for events of tbe past few hours.
The most stringent measures will be
adopted immediately to enforce the
majesty of the law at all hazards. Startling developments may now nuw be expected.
Montreal, Oct. 18.—The Canadian
Pacific railway has just concluded a contract with the Lackawaua Iron and Coal
Co., of Scranton, Pa., for 10,000 tons of
rails, steel, at $25.50 per ton at mills, or
delivered to any Canadian port, or in
New York, for 926.50. It is believed
this is the first time an American company have been successful in competition
with English manufacturers for steel
raits delivered in Canada. The reason
given by the assistant general manager
of the Canadian Pacific railway is that
the American price ts about two dollars
per ton cheaper, owing to present competition among manufacturers there.
London, Oot;. 18.—The government
has decided to expend a million pounds
on its fortifications at Siguapore aud
Hongkong. Orders have been sent from
the war office to hasten the work.
Paris, Oct. 18.—The proposal of tho
it.mister of agriculture to increase duties
aro opposed by Rouvier, new ministor of
commerce, but are approved of by Tier-
ami, minister of finance. It is reported
the resignations of Meline and Tteraud
are imminent. Autl-ministerial papers
denounce the practice of French troops
in Tutu-inn of taking no prisoners aud
killing the wounded. Tho Qaloise says
thut because the Chinese refuse quarter
cannot justify soldiers of n country, pretending to be tho advance guard of civilization in making war like savages.

What's in a Name!—Scrofula is so
called from the Latin scro/u, a pig, from
tho supposition tbat the disease came
from eating swine's flesh. It is often
inherited from parents, and leads to ab*
sceBses, ulcerous sores, debility, king's
evil and consumption. The case of the

Important Changes,—There are two
periods in tbe life of every female when

First, tbe change from childhood to
womanhood; next, that of womanhood

leas tonic, Burdock Blood Bitters. It
iB invaluable in all diseases peculiar to

A REMARKABLE STORY,
If Hester had but known that she
was supposed to be "drawing him on"
by her absences! but fortunately she
did not know. And nothing could
have made them understand each
other on that point. They belonged
to two different species, and talked
different languages. But the superficial explanation whieh Catherine was
ashamed of heraelf for giving, and
which Edward despised, would have
seemed quite natural to Harry, though
in many ways he was better than thoy
were! and far more truo to his own
system of morality. He neither hid
nor deceived; he did not cheat himself nor any one else; and truth is so
precious that even a low matter-of-fact
truth is better than half a falsehood,
however delicately or cleverly carried
out. Harry was all genuine throughout, not elevated in kind, but never
pretending to be what he wus not.
He liked to think that he had a great
many advantages to bestow, and that
* the lady of his hopes had too much
good-sense not to tako theso advantages into consideration. This was
different from wild impulse and passion, which some peoplo think liner
things. But Harry did not think so:
he knew nothing iudeed about them.
He considered that a man (and on the
other side perhaps nn heiress) might
"please his fancy," in the first place,
about his wife, before thinking of
other matters, but that the girl should
weigh the advantages, and strain a
point to acoept a good otter, was as
"    clear to him as daylight.   It would
• not, in the smallest degree, have vexed
him to know that his own claims wero
thus reasonably weighed. Ho had the
proud satisfaction of thinking that
Hester was not very likely to get auch
another offer, and ho felt sufficient confidence in her good-sense to be suro
that this must have its just influence
upon her. Why should not it weigh
with her? She was "no fool." Sho
could not 1-ut see on which Bide the
advantage lay.
The only thing was, that he get
tired of waiting for the decision. He
thought it unreasonable that, having
so honorably and unequivocally displayed his intentions, he should not be
allowed to carry thom out. Sumifier
began to wane and autumn to come on,
ana yet he had never been ablo to
speak to the object of his alloctiuns.
At laat hia patience failed him altogether. He announced his minft to
Mrs. John almost with solemnity. "I
can't go on much longer," he aaid; "the
servants worry me to death, Ellen
always took that sort of thing elf my
hands. But I don't want Ellen to get
her nose in again and spoil my wife's
chances when she docs come. Tho
truth is, I should liko to get married
before Christmas, if I am to be married at all. Why should Hosier hold
me off and on! If she won't have me
let her say so, and 1 can look elsewhere. I don't think I should have
much difficulty in finding—" ho concluded, his annoyance going off in a
half-smile of vanity as he caressed his
light mustache.
A shiver ran through Mrs. John.
Before Christmas! Even if Heater
would consent nt all, was it possible
that her reluctance could bo overpowered so soon, or that she ahould be
made to acquiesce in Harry's quite
practical and*mntter-of-fact view. "No
doubt you want a lndy in tho house,"
she said, sympathetically. "I am sure,
if I could be of any use—"
"Oh yes, of course von could be of
use," said the straightforward lover,
"after we are married; but it would be
making a laughing-stock of ourselves
if I were to have you before. If there
was any reason for putting off I might
wait, but I don't see any reason. Unco
it's settled wo could make our arrangements comfortably. It is being hung
up like this from week to week which
Ib sueh a nuisance to me."
He went away that evoning almost
angry. What waB to be done? Mrs.
John's natural instinct was to "talk
to" Heater; but she had learned by
experience that "talking to" ia not a
very effectual instrument. All that
she had beeu ablo to sny hnd been
said, but without much apparent effect.
She had pointed out nil tho advantages. She, had shown, with tears in
her eyes, what a change it would be—
what an unspeakable, delightful difference. Insensibly to herself, Mrs.
John had become eloquent upon the
charms, if not of Harry, nt least of
the White Houso. But this had suddenly been brought homo to hor by
*' her remorseless child, who said calmly,
"Mother, if I could marry the house
and let you hnve it I would do so in n
moment;" which stopped Mrs. John's
mouth.
" "Marry—the—house?" shosaid,with
a surprised cry,
"It is of the house you are talking.
I know it is nice—or at least I know
you like it. I do not care*for it my *
self."
"Oh, Hester, my tirst married
homer
"YeB, mother, I know. I wish I
could get it for you—on easier terms,"
tho girl said, with a sigh. And this
was about nll that ever came of talking
to her. She was very obstinate, uud
suoh a strange girl.
But some way Providence, su much
appealed to -whom we upbraid for not
furthering our pinna—suddenly did interfere. It was entirely hy chance, as
people say, Mra. John hnd gone out
nf tho room nnt two minutes bofore,
and Hester, who had boon walking and
had just come in, stood before the old-
fashioned dark mirror whicli occupied
the apaco between the windows, arranging her hair, which had been
blown about by the wind. It was, ns
has been said, troublesome hair—so
full of curls that tho moment it hnd a
chance it ran out of the lovol nnd orderly into rings, and twists which were
quite unfashionable in those days. It
had been loosened out by tho wind,
und sito was trying to coax it hack into
its legitimate bondage, with hor nrma
raised to her head and her back turned
to the door. Harry came in without
knocking, and the lirst intimation Hester had that the long-avoided moment
had oome, and that there was no escape for her, was when she saw his
large form in the glass close to her,
looming ovor her, his fair head above
hers, looking down with admiration
and tenderness upon her image. Shu
turned round hastily, with a cry of
astonishment, her rebellious looks os-
oaping from her hands.
"Why shouldn't you let it stay so?
It ii very pretty so," Harry said, looking nt the curly mass with a smile, as
jf lie bad a groat mind to tako a lock'
of it Jn his fingers.
Hester sprang awny from him, and
twitted it up, she did not know how,
"It ia ao untidy; there is so much
wind," Bhe was angry with heraelf
for apologizing. It was ho who ought
to have apologized. She pushed the
hair away behind her ean and got it
fastened somehow. "I did not hear
your knock," she aaid.
"I fear I didn't knock. The veranda door was open. I saw nobody
about. I did not know whether I
should find nny one. You are so often
out now."
"Ycb, I walk with old Captain Mtr-
gan about this time. In the morning
I am always nt homo."     ,
"If I had known that I should have
come in the morning," he said; "not
regularly, because of tho bank, but I
Bhould hnve come onco to see you.
However, tins iB far better. I am so
glnd to find you. I have wished for
thia for months post. Has it never
occurred to you that I was anxious to
seo you, Hestor? You looked to me
as if you were keeping away."
"Why should I keep away? Ido
always the snmo thing nt the same
hour. Captain Morgan is old—he ro-
quires to have somebody with him."
"And I—I am young, and I want
somebody with mo.
"Oh, it doos not matter nbout young
poople," Hester said.
' 'I think it matters most of all, because thoy hnve thoir lifo beforo them;
nnd don't you know the choice of a
companion tells for bo much—"
•'A companion!—oh, thnt is quito a
different question," said Hester. "It
is teaching I havo always wanted, novor a companion's place."
"I have heard of that'," said Harry.
"When you were quite a little thing
you wanted to tench, and Aunt Catherine would not let you. You—teaching! It would have been quito out of
tho question. Won't you sit down?
Do come for once, now that I have
found you, and Bit down horo."
It wna tho little, old-fashioned settee
thnt wns indicated, whoro thero was
just room for two.
"Oh, I have got things to do!" oriad
Hestor, in alarm. "My mother will
bo here immediately, but I—have got
something upstairs—"
"Always when I come," ho snid.
"Just once, because I um horo, listen
to me, HeBter. lt won't take very
long. I think you use me very ill.
You know I como here for you, and
you will never let me sec you. And
now when I find you by chanco, you
insist that you have somothiug to do.
Leave it till to-morrow. Perhaps aftor
to-morrow," suid Hnrry, in a lugubrious voice, "I may not bo coming any
moro."
"Ib anything to happen to-morrow?"
said Hester, betrayed by his1 seeming
gravity.
Then Hnrry choered up again and
became more ut his ease.
"No," he snid, "if somethingshould
happen to-night. That's whnt I wish
—thnt something should happen uow.
Sit down, please, nud listen. Don't
you know, Heator—they sny women
nlwnya know—thnt I've been in love
with yon evor so long?"
"No, I don't know anything about
it," said Hester, though a sudden Hush
came ovor her face.
She had seated herself on the sofa
in n kind of desperation, fearing thnt
he meant to placo himself beside her,
And such had been Harry's intention,
but some dim sense of litnesa moved
him to depart from this portion of his
programme. Ho stood beforo hor instead, looking down upon her, feeling
now that he had it all iu his own
hands.
"It is true, though. What do you
suppose I have been coming here for
every night? I think I've beon iu
love with you ever sines I first saw
you—when" you were only a child.
Now I'm alone, since my sister is married, nnd quite free to' choose where I
like." He mnde a pause, but Heater
did not say anything. She sat drawing patterns upon the carpet with her
foot, listening, because she could not
help it. Sho who was so full of eager-
ness and life, it seemod to Hnrry as if
every lino of her figure expressed the
listlessness of a subject thnt wenricd
her. Now this wns moro than a fellow
could stand, although oven now ho
felt thnt it drew him on, "By Jove!"
ho cried, "one would think you wero
getting offers every day of your life."
She looked up ut him with a brightening countenance.
"No," she aaid. "If this iB an
offer, Cousin Harry, it is tho first I
have ever had."
"And you think no more of it than
that!" ho cried, with most natural
feeling, flinging, himself down in a
low, wicker-work chair at her feet, so
that he mnde it shako nnd tremble.
Thia restored Hester onco more to herself. She began to be amused, wliich,
iu the dull life she was leading, told
for so much.
"How should I take.it? I don't
ktiow, indeed, for I never was in tho
circumstances boforo. It is true, I
have rend nbout it in books," said
Hester, considering. "A girl in a
novel would say that it waa a great
honor you had done her, Cousin Harry," for lm showed signs of natural
impatience, jumping up and pacing
noisily nbout the room. "Don't you
soe it is very difficult? You make a
statement to ino about your own stato
of mind, and then you look aa if you
expected something from me; but what
am I to say? I am not in lovo with
you—or anybody," Hester added quietly, us if by an after-thought.
Ho was coming toward her, with his
lips apart ready to Bpeak; but this
quiet, little, additional word Boomed
to stop in a moment what he was going
to Bay. He did not quite know how,
nor did sho know, whether Bho meant
anything by it; but it had mi iniine-
mediato effect. He gave a gasp, as if
those arrested words almost choked
him, then suid, "Nor anybody?" suddenly. It had seemed certain to him
before thnt: aho novor could havo seon
anyone, ntid she had informed him
that this wbb her first "offer"; nevertheless, hev took those words—having
tlieui thrown at him, aa- it were, in a
nnrpriso—ns n groat concession. Ho
drew a long breath aiid said:
"Then, Heator, there is the more
chance for mo."
Thus in n moment their relative positions wure changed. Harry had begun by feeling that he had a great
deal to bestow—ninny things whioh
no girl iu her senses could neglect or
reject; but in u moment he hnd beun
reduced to whnt in chivnlry should be
a lover's only standing-ground, tho
right of telling his love with or without response, waiting absolutely upon
Iub lady's pleasure, hoping for hor
bounty—no more. He was so carried
away by this now impulse that he did
not understand himself, or tho change
worked in him; but with a gasp as for
breath turned from the nineteenth
century version of love-making to the
primitive mm, not knowing whnt ho
did.
