The Reluctant Ministers.
On account of tins tendency of tlm
present administration to put off till
inconveniently late in the winter the
assembling of the Legislature, the
House resolved, (luring Inst session.
that it should be called together
early in January of each year. The
considerations and influences which
have led to delay in convening the
Legislature have been more or less
varied each year; but it is safe to
my that ui every instance it has been
done to a greater or less extent upon
the Mucatiberhin principle of "waiting for something to turn up"—
something that might occupy public
attention .and, if possible, prevent
too critical an examination into tho
condition of Provincial affairs. It
has boon a favorite game of the
adroit little Premier, about that season of tho year when the Legislature
should be convened, to point away
to Ottawa or Downing Street, ami
lead the public mind to expect some
wonderful development to their advantage. Sometimes he Ill's so arranged matters as to be there him-
8*1 f; but more often he lias bad the
llN»tion-maker"ioEgypt, performing
before Pharoah, and tho meeting of
the Legislature has boen delayed in
order that the wonderful results of
those costly missions might give importance to the "Speech from the
Throne;" and it maybe presumed
that it is partly with a view to providing these annual diversions that
tho Premier has managed to keep up
a misunderstanding with the Bo
minion Government. In so far,
however, as tlio present occasion is
concerned, we incline to the opinion
that tho Ministry delay calling the
House together upon another well-
known principle—"putting off the
evil day." True, DaCosmoa has boen
on the usual errand, and lias been
enabled to spend the year at Loudon
and Ottawa in the name and at the
expense of the too often duped people of Ib-itish Columbia; but the
public have been enabled so thoroughly to understand the utter folly
of that mission, and Sir Charles
Topper so effectually prickod that
wind-bag, that the little "thimble-
rigger" can hardly hope for any very
attractive material from that source
out of which to manufacture eyo-
dust But whatever may be the
motive for delay this year, we are
very confident that it cannot be such
ns to justify tho Ministers in delaying the meeting of tho Legislature
so far beyond the date indicated by
resolution last session, and in overriding and disregarding that resolution. The reasons which led to the
passing of that resolution exist still,
and with greater force than they did
a year ago, The personal con von
iance ami interests of members of
the House constitute by no means
the most important reasons, although
entitled to consideration. A late
session is not only extremely inconvenient to those members coming
from out-lying constituencies, but it
inevitably involves hurried and crude
legislation, of which tho country has
hud rather more than enough already.
But a late session means a late commencement of work upon roads,
bridges, ifcc, and there certainly
never was a period in the history of
this province when it was more important that such works should be
commenced early. There are, in
every district of tho' Mainland, important settlements so utterly destitute of the ordinary means of communication as to ho absolutely unable
to transport tbo produce *of their
farms to the markets ; and thus not
only is the price of living increased
to the consumer, hut the producer is
practically delmrred from participating in the advantages arising, or supposed to arise, from the vast expenditures on railway work. Surely these
aro considerations which ought to
outweigh tbo convenience of three
idle Ministers.   Iu these icinarks, it

is assumed that there will ho available from this year's revenue a considerable sum to be devoted to reproductive and necessary public
works. There certainly ought to be.
To a great extent the Chief Commissioner has failed to expend the appropriations made last session for tbo
districts on tho Mainland, and it is
very well understood that he has
been ''husbanding" these revenues in
order to swell the expenditures this
year for political purposes—: to influence the impending election!, lint
what, if it should happen that the
"whit'; elephant" at Esquimalt shall
absorb the greater pare of the revenue which should be available for
much-needed public works on the
Mainland this year? Such a calamity
is unquestionably among the possibilities. Indeed it is plainly intimated by the leading Victoria paper
that something of tho kind is'really
in store for the people of the Main-
lard ; for, somehow, it is this section
of the province that has always to
bear the il! consequences of any
shortage in the revenues available
for public improvements. But,
whatever difference of opinion may
exist respecting the motives mid
causes leading thereto, a late session,
with all the consequent inconvenience nnd loss to the members nnd to
the country, would now appear to be
inevitable.

To Burrard Inlet,
Oncfl again would we direct attention to the urgent need that exists for a better roadway connecting
this city with Burrard Inlet. Onco
moro we would point out the true
wisdom and economy of having recourse to what is commonly known
as the "False Creek Trail," as presenting a route by wliich an infinitely better road could be obtained
for less money than it would cost to
place tlie old road in a passable condition, and which, onco made, would
cost less for maintenance than the
interest on the money it would require to keep the other in repair.
Tho present road is next to being
absolutely impassable. It is so
during every wet season. It would
coit something like eight thousand
dollars to put it? in anything like
fair condition; but even then the
gradients would, and must always,
be excessively heavy. For less than
a third of that sum we are assured
that a tolerably good road could be
made along the other route; and,
owing the nature of the soil and
openness of the country, it would
cost vory little to keep it in repair—
in good repair. And then, there is
this important consideration, that
the road would be almost a dead
'level throughout its entire length,
that is to say, when once the ridge
Immediately in the rear of this city
is overcome ; and that can easily be
donf by adopting Edinburgh street,
instead of Douglas street, as the
approach. There is another consideration of vital importance, whieh
ought not to be overlooked in dealing with this subject. About one-
third of the road—the Granville
end—is already made, ami to continue it on to the end of Edinburgh
street would be not only to establish
a  good highway between this city
.-■and Burrard Inlet, but it would at
the same time be creating an arterial road from which branches could
■bfl constructed into the important
settlement on the peninsula, thereby
connecting them with the two chief
markets. Transpiring events now
point unmistakably to Granville as
the great future contra of population and commerce on Burrard Inlet.
Already an important centre, no one
acquainted with what is even jiow
transpiring can doubt that it will
very soon attain to a degree of
progressive importance which will
render it most desirable that New
Westminster should enjoy facile
means of communication with it. It
will, therefore, be soon that every
consideration wliich should load the
Government to undertake any public work can fairly bo urged in favor
of this. It would be a measure of
economy. An infinitely bettor road
could be produced for less money.
Jt would serve tlm interests of the
principal communities on the Inlet
much better than the present road
could possibly bo mado to do. It
would to a very great extent meet
the wants of thriving settlements
on the more southerly part of the
peninsula ; and it would jirovo of
immense advantage to this city.
These are unanswerable propositions,
every one of them. How, therefore, can the Executive be excused
for refusing to undertake tho work?
How can the people's representatives possibly justify themselves for

tant problem of the hour, to tho
satisfactory solution of which it behoves, tho lloyal City to address
itself. We have repeatedly warned
this people that, unless they put
forth timely and energetic efforts for
the purpose of inducing the Syndicate to bring tho railway here,
there is a strong probability of the
iddle route getting the preference.
Thero can be little doubt that, in
the event of the middle route being
chosen, there would be a depot on
the Brunette flat, with a branch
ailway running into this city; and
there would now appear to be a probability of a change being mado in
the initial point from Pitt river to
tins city. A line from here to the
point indicated on the Brunette flat
being inevitable, no matter which of
those routes bo selected, this would,
after all, constitute the most fuvor-
blo point from which to commence
construction. It must be admitted
that, in either event, this city would
not faro very badly, while commencement hero would suit the settlements
on the Lower Fraser equally as well
as commencement at Pitt river. Still,
it is impossible not to see that to
bring the main lino here, and make
tins tho some-time terminus, would
be greatly more beneficial to New
Westminster. To make this the
initial point of construction and
resting place would undoubtedly have
a tendency to build lip a large commercial and industrial centre which
would hold its own against all rivals,
creating a permanent and good market for tho products of the fertile
delta lands of the Lower Fraser; and
the creation of such a market is
scarcely less in the interest of the
surrounding settlements than that of
the city. There are those who
would be content with the branch;
but, for our own part, we should
prefer to see the main line, the Canadian Paoilio Railway itself, come
here. Wo believe it would be at
once in the true interest of the city,
tho surrounding settlements, and the
railway itself that such should be
the case, And we believe that it is
not too late to bring about such a
result. But it can only bo accomplished by action—energetic and
united action,

Editorial Notes.
Events point unmistakably in the
direction of Hudson Bay as the summer outlet for tho fond products of the
groat North-West. A survey party
was out during tho past season, in
charge of Mr. Kirkpatrick, C. E., an
old-time resident of this city, making
an exploratory Biirvey of the route
front Winnipeg to Hudson Bay, and
tho result is understood to be highly
satisfactory. Not only has a practicable route been found, but a most
favorable lino lias been located between
Lime Stone Rapids, the head of navigation on Nelson River, and Lake
Winnipeg. The distance between
these two points is 200 miles, in the
entire length of which there is not a
rock excavation of six foot in depth,
Only two streams are crossed, the
bridging of which will not cost moro
than a quarter of a million, and the
country is remarkably Favorable in
every respect. Twenty miles of tho
line ia ready for the contractors, and it
is fully determined to commence tho
work of construction in tho spring.
Mr. Bannerman, well entitled to speak
on the subject, states that it is certain
the month of Nelson river can bo
; reached by ocean-going vessels from
! the beginning of dune till tho end of
October,

Routes and Termini.
It is no longer n. nucstion of
Port Moody vs. Coal Harbor. That
is among the dead issues. The question now to be solved is : Shall the
railway reach Coal Harbor by the
middle route, or by this? As was
intimated some weeks ago, it will
diverge from tho located line nt a
point not far from Maple Ridge,
keeping nearer tbo Fraser, and,
sweeping down through the valleys
of the Pitt and Coquitlam, ifc will
approach tho Brunette not far from
where the Pitt road crosses that
stream. The question which most
deeply concerns this community
just now is : Shall tlio line be there
deflected towards tlio north, nnd
reach Coal Harbor via Burnaby
Lake,or shall it oome on to this city,
here to rest until such timo as the
exigencies of commerce shall demand
the presence of a larger class of ships
than can conveniently resort to this
port ?   This constitutes Hie irnpor-
We have been aware for soino
mouths of an impression In the minds
of persons hy no means unfriendly to
him, that tho lato Member for this
District lias not been giving tho interests of his constituency the first place
—that he has bairn neglecting them
for his own. If we have boen reticent upon the fliihjcct, it has been
simply because wo had not in our possession that information necessary to
counteract what we believed to be
wrong impressions. Thero is not
wanting now, however, evidence to
the contrary — showing conclusively
that our late Member has not been
unmindful of his trust, that ho lias
been working quietly and, what is bettor still, successfully for the best interests of the District. Tho evidence
of this is not yet in a form to come
beforo tho public; but it soon will be,
and then wo know what tho verdict
shall he given.
Not long ago we intimated as plainly
as we could without violating confidence that negotiations woro in progress for the acquirement hy the
0. P. It. Syndicate of a largo parcel of
land on Burrard Inlet From information recontly received, thero would
appear to he every probability of those
negotiations resulting in a bargain.
Notwithstanding tlio large area of public land falling to them en route to and
at the ocean terminus, tho Syndicate
ara evidently anxious to acquire more,
doubtless with the intention of founding a city by the sea,

in fashionable Millinery,
Flowers, Feathers, Dress

will surpass anything seen before in this City.
All orders entrusted to us
in this department, Avill bo
filled with despatch and our i
prices will be as low as good
work will permit.
In staple and Fancy Dry '
Goods, we have a good stock, j

|iood at St. Mary's Mission, where he

Lytton School.—From tho Inland
Sentinel we learn that tho Christmas
term of the public school at Lytton
closed with n public examination of
the most gratifying character. The
pupils acquitted themselves most creditably, in presence of about fifty visitors, and tho Teacher, Miss Bailey,
was the reccipiont of the highest encomiums and a purse containing $73
as a testimonial.
We Sinuekbly Horn He May.—An
Ottawa despatch says:—Mr. Onder-

He will leave the city to return to

Valedictory.—Elsewhere wo publish Senator Mclnnes' valedictory address to the Electors of New Westminster, upon the occasion df his elevation to the Upper House. There
can bo no doubt that this District virtually gains an additional representative in the Dominion Parliament hy the
change, and that Dr. Mclnnes will
work for the best interests of the District none the less zealously because
he is in tho Senate.   .
From the Bottom to the Tori —Few
more striking instances of a man climbing from the lowest to the highest round
of the ladder aro recorded than that
related by Archdeacon Kh'by, a few
days ago. He says that wlteti lie went
to Red River, in 1852, he met a little
barefooted boy and asked him if he
didn't want to go to school, He said
ho did, and went. That littb Indian
boy is now James North way, Prime
Minister of Mauitob'.
County Court.-This Court, postponed from December till to-day, ban
been further postponed till next Wednesday, the three'Judgta being on-
gagoil sitting iu banc at Victoria. This
repeated postponement i.i getting to
be rather unsatisfactory. Immediately
upon receiving notice of postponement,
tlie Registrar here telegiMphod to the
principal points, und it is hoped no
one will have been put to any groat
inconvenience by the change.
The Convict Labor,—Now that the
City Council is to have control of the
chaiugang, it is desirable that a euro-
fill programme should bo marked out
lor tho utilization of that labor. It is
a question whether the time has hot
arrived when a beginning, however,
small, should be made in a system of
sewage, upon a plan whieh would render convenient such a gradual extension as the financial circumstances of
the city would justify. Could not the
convict labor bo applied to this with
advantage ?
Ancient Order ok United Workmen. — On Monday night Beaver

it ought to arrive by Friday's mail;
so that this District will be in the
throes of an election presently. Appearances do not indicate, however,
that there will be anyone foolhardy
enough seriously to question Mr.
Homer's right of way tu the fedora!
capital. From every part of the District the news is so decidedly favorable
to bis cause that it is, indeed, difficult
to imagine there will lie any opposition
offered All. things considered, it is
most desirable that there should be no
contest, as that could only result iu
leaving tbo District unrepresented
during tho first half of the session;
and it is important that our representative should bo thoro early. There
can be little doubt that the election
will be bv acclamation.
Investigation Closed,—On Saturday afternoon Coroner Trew held tho
adjourned inquest upon tho human remains found on Lulu Island, lust week.
No identification of any of the articles
or remains took place, nor was any
farther light thrown upon tho mystery.
The jury, therefore, found that deceased, unknown, came to his death
by violence nt the hands of some por-
son or pei-sons unknown. Now that
tho fragments of the skull coltucted
have been placed in position, it would
appear to bo beyond all doubt that
death was caused by tho discharge of
a gun iu close proximity, tho charge
entering at Hie back of tbo bond and
shattering tho skull. Thero would
Mum to bo very little prospect now
of finding n, clue to the murder, but
still every reasonable effort should be
made, Ono point which might load to
identification is tho abHonce of tho
centre tooth in thq upper jaw. Tlio
investigation is closed, in so far as tho
coroner's inquest is concerned, but it is
to bo hoped offovts to unravel the mystery may not cease.

Before the Judges.
The constitutional questions aro still
being argued beforo and by the Judges
at Victoria. The Attorney-General is
evidently getting worsted. At all
events he is losing his temper. We
clip the following from the report of
Monday's proceedings:
The Attorney-General said bo was
discouraged by the inattention and
yawning on tlio bench, and he did not
feel disposod to go ou with the casi'
The Chief Justice—I must oonfp a I
do not see the thread of your »igu|
mcut.
The Attorney-General—I don't believe the bench doe«. If it did it
would not bIiow such disrespect.
The Chief Justice—Your observations do not appear to bear on the
question at all.
Tlie Island Railway.
A short timo ago we stated that
there was good ground for believing
the C. P. R. Syndicate had about concluded arrangements for undertaking
the Island railway, aiid we ventured
to express tho opinion that the people
of all sections would be glad to learn
that tho work was assured. For ox-
pressing that opinion wo were savagely
attacked by tlio Government organ
bore. Wo are now in a position to
stale that Syndicate Engineers are
already under orders to make a fresh
survey of the lino between Esquimalt
and Nanaimo, with a view to the early
commencement of construction. We
are still without details as to the forms
mado with the Syndicate; but we presume the work is undertaken upon tbo
land grant basis. We congratulate
our friends on the other side of the
gulf. t__
Tlie New Council.
This body mot for the first time on
Monday evening, and it will meet
again this evening Thero was a
large audience in the Council Chamber .on Monday evening, probably in
expectation of an inaugural address
from the new Mayor. Tf that was
their object they wero disappointed.
It would lie well, however, if there
were a larger attendance, of rate-payers
at the Council meetings* It would
show that they wero disposed to keep
an eyo on civic legislation, and the
tendency would bo to pinko Councillors
more careful. The aptitude for business displayed at. tlie first meeting by
new Councillors may be accepted as a
good augury, and wo havo no doubt
that they will fulfil the expoohitiona of
their supporters. Many will rejoice
to see Comibillor Donne's notico for
the long-promised and much-nooded
side-walk on Agnes Street.
The Steam Perry.
The local organ might with great
appropriateness adopt.thu flea as its
"totoin;" for, in the marvellous rap
idity with which it changes its position, it bears a striking resemblance
to that lively little insect. For more
than twelve months we havo been advocating tlie establishment or a steam
ferry ou the Fraser river opposite this
city, and we have pointed out the
means by which it could be accomplished without involving any charge
upon tbo public revenue, The local
organ has just as assiduously opposed
it, ridiculing tlie idea of a steam ferry
"where the tr\flic will not pay one
man's wages 'for a row-boat." Tho
above-quoted words are from its leading article of two or three weeks ago;
but during the whole twelve-months
and mora its language has been that
of opposition and ridicule. Those
who know tho habits of fhe organ
could scarcely bo surprised to find it
out in a loading article, on Saturday,
advocating the establishment of the
steam ferry, and pointing out tho
necessity for it—in fact, going over
the well beaten ground so often trodden by ourselves. But tho matchless
cheek with which it actually claims
credit for having placed tho scheme in
a fair way of success would be sublime
if it were not disgusting. The fabled
"fly on tho wheel" is completely
eclipsed. We nro in a position to
state, without any breach of confidence, that, long before this impudent
pretension was set up, nay, ere yet
the organ bad ceased its opposition,
petitions for the steam ferry wore
under way; and it was doubtless a
knowledge of tho fact that these petitions wero being eagerly signed by tlie
settlers on the south side of the Eraser
that induced tho organ fo give this
last exhibition of its agility ns a
"ground ami lofty tumbler." These
facts being well known to the settlers,
how utterly contemptible and childish
thu conduct of our contemporary
must appear.

WITHOUT KNOWING IT,
Cora, Rod well was an only child—a
great pet, and vory mucb spoiled, so
some of her acquaintances said. Hor
mother taught her to make pies and
puddings, to dust and sew, and superintend tbo one servant; but sbo allowed ber to havo a great deal of her
own way, and to spend her afternoons
and evenings as sho liked best herself.
Cora was, as her friends said, "dreadfully romantic;" sbo was suspected of
having written verses; she was known
to be terribly fond of rtading poems
and legends, and of wandering in tho
woo'ds that surround Lonsdale —- the
village where she dwelt—and over the
swelling downs that spread on the left
side of tho valley, for hours and hours,
gathering wild flowers, anon sitting
down tu read or lust in reverie.
Cora had eloquent dark eyes and a
pale, beautiful, mobile face; she was
eighteen, tall and slender, erect and
graceful; she had in hor mind an impossible ideal hero; if she mot him
and ho loved hor, she would marry
him though ho wore clad in rags, had
to earn his bread as a common mechanic, and to live in some high, cold,
miserable garret in smoky London,
If she mot this same hero clothed in
the purples of rank, and ho loved hor
not, then would sho be content to
worship him at a distance all tlie days
of her life; but unless she married this
dream-hero, sho would never, never
marry at all.
Lonsdale is far from cities, and Cora
knew very, very little of the world.
Mr. Uodwoll was the manager of a
paper factory that had long flourished
in tho remote village among tlio hills.
The factory was tho property of tho
lord of tbo manor—a Mr. Chester.
The manor-house was a grand old mansion built in the reign of William tho
Third. The present owner bad hardly
ever visited the manor since ho left it
at tho age of twenty-two, when, on
his father's death, be had come into
tho property, mortgaged to its last
acre. His mother, a delicate and
fastidious dame, was nearly crazed
with sorrow when sho found how
things were. Her son tried to comfort hor.
"I will pay off all the mortgages in
less than a dozen years," he said, bravely, "if they will only give me time."
The creditors did give the young
man time. The house, with all its
treasures of art, furniture, and antique
plate was let to a Sir .Turret Jenkins,
a rich, newly-made knight; and John
Chester only took from the five hundred a-year ho received for it a hundred and fifty for the use of hismothorj
all tho remainder bo devoted to the
paying off of the intorest and the
mortgages. Tho paper factory the
creditors took possession of and worked
for their own benefit, taking tho profits for interest and compound interest on the money thoy had lent.
John Chester worked as a clerk in a
merchant's office for years, and then
had a junior partnership offered him,
with the proviso that be should go out
to China and manage the branch at
Hong-Kong. Ho wont abroad and
worked and worked, and then the
chief representative of tho firm died;
and on paying into it some thousands
that ho had saved, John Chester was
made the equal of tho remaining part
ner, who soon died, and thus John
Became tbo head of the nourishing
concern.
Fifteen years Iind elapsed since bis
father's death, and now John Chester,
nt the ago of thirty-seven, was in a
position to clear tho manor - house
estate to its last acre and to take
possession of it, he being at the same
time the richest man in tho county.
News came to Lonsdale that Air.
Chester had sold his great mercantile
business, nnd was now on his way
homo. Sir Jarret Jenkins had twelve*
months' notice to quit served on him
in duo legal form, and he 1-sft at the
six months to tako a place in Devon.
Workmen were busy at tho manor-
house now from morning till night.
When the new sqiuro would arrive
nobody know.
One balmy, pure evening, Cora Rocl-
woll was busy watering the flowers in
tho protty garden which surrounded
the large picturesque old cottage which
sho called homo, when a stranger
stopped at tho gate, removed his hat,
and askod her gently if sho knew of
any rooms to lot in tho village. She
looked up from under tho shadow of
her large bat, and saw a face masculine, brown, and thoughtful, bearded
with a thick brown beard - a lino face,
but with neither brightnesn nor youth
to rucomiucnd it, rich in youthfulness
ns was Cora with the glorious heritage
of hor eighteen ytani and her delicate
beauty as bar dower. Sho regarded
the stranger a>i a good sort of middle-
aged man, as far removed from a hero
ns is tho North Pole from tho South.
"I don't think thero are any lodgings ,to lot," the girl said, shaking her
protty head gravely. "1 will ask my
inothor."
"Thank you I urn vory tired; I
hftve walked a lon'g way, May T be
allowed to sit for a little while on
that garden-scat on the grass?''
"Oh, with pleasure! cried Cora,
"do cotne iu!"
Tho stranger entered the garden,
Cora—tall, slender, dressed iu some
pretty washing summer-enstmuo of
white, trimmed with palest pink-
Cora, with hor eloquent eyes, and her
ruddy lips, and hor sweot womanly
smile—was an enolmntress. So the
stranger thought; but he sighed as ho
Boated himself under tho becch-treo
on tho lawn, and saw tho graceful
damsel enter the low-roofed, long old
cottngo. Presently she emerged again.
Sho was carrying a tray, on wliich
■ wero u glass claret-jug, some delicately-
cut ham sandwiches, and a largo claret
glatfi.
"I Iiaro brought you something to
drink and a sandwich," said Cora,
kindly.
Tlio stranger had taken off his hat.
He liml thick, abort, curly dark hair;
his brow was lined with care or thought.
Cora received bis thanks, and seated
herself on tho grass ut a little distance
from him. There was room nn tho
garden-Bent for the stranger and tho
tray with his refreshments.
"My mother will oomo soon nnd
tell you alJoitt tho village. She says
she is sure yon can't get lodgings. She
thinks you mint stay at tho Crown—
that's the best inn in tlit village."
"It may bo rather expensive," said
the stranger. "Ah! hero comes your
mother. I am sure she is kind. I
don't know how sufficiently to thank
you and her."
Mrs. Rod well advanced smiling.
She was a round, rosy, buxom dams,"
with a good-tempered face—not the
least like the pale, spiritnelle countenance of her daugliter. Tho stranger
arose, but she begged him to be seated,
and sat down herself near to Cora on
the soft close turf.
"I don't think there is a lodging iu
the whole village to lot that yon would
like," said Mrs, Rod well.    "The inn
is comfortable."
, "But expensive, I suppose ?''
"Not as inns go—about six shillings
a day!"
"But I want to bo here several
weeks. Mr. Chester has commissioned
me to superintend the manor-house
repairs and decorations; but six shillings a day means two guineas a week.
That is much out of an income of
threo pounds. If I had rooms for
ten shillings, T could board myself for
another pound."
" We never did such a thing beforo,"
said Mrs. Rod well; "but I know my
husband is anxious to please and oblige Mr. Chester."
"Naturally," said tho stranger,
drily. \
"And indeed luwojio who is respectable and worthy] (and of course you
are both, or Mr.  Chester would not
trust you."
The stranger smiled faintly.
""Mr.  Chester is liable to mistakes
like the rest of us," he said.
"Mrs. Rodwell laughed.
"I was going to say that we have
two spare rooms—a sitting-room and
pleasant  bedroom;   and  if   you  will
board with us, which will save trouble,
we will take you for thirty shillings u
week."
Tho stranger's keen gray eyes flashed
for a moment.
"Many thanks!" said he. "But I
must show you my letters of introduction from Mr. Chester. You
must not be loo ready to trust strangers. There ia my card," and ho
handed Mrs. Rodwell a card, on which
was engraved "Charlos Wood, St.
Hilda's, Herefordshire." "So you s«o
I am a true-born British subject, and
worthy of respect on that account."
"I love foreigners!" said Cora, clasping her hands."
"Why?" asked Mr. Wood, bluntly
"Because they are nut so practical
and matter of fact—so greedy of gain
and full of worldly common-sense—as
the English are; they are all for
pounds shillings and pence, and eating
and drinking."
"Poor wretehesl I am afraid we
are a degraded set of fellows," said
Mr. Wood, with a smile.
"And I should like to know what
chance our Com 1ms had of judging of
foioiguei'3 I" said Mrs. Rodwell, with
a laugh. "How many have you met,
child I"
Cora flushed faintly.
"Not many, certainly. There was
Signora Bellini, the Italian mistress at
our college at Bristol; and Hcrr Loff,
tho music-master; and Monsieur Lipi-
no, tho French master; and a friend
of his, a Monsieur Faloise, who came
to the breaking-up party—that is all."
"And all these charming persons
were above the sordid interests of
every-day life—wero they, Miss Rod-
well ?" Mr, Wood asked, with a mocking smile.
"I don't say that exactly; but Monsieur Lipino and Signora Bellini wero
delightful—so full of fancy and enthusiasm fur art and music and poetry!'
"Cora finds all the folks about hero
very bum-drum and common-place,"
said Mrs. Rodwell. "Lonsdale is dull
for a young girl, so far removed from
life, and gaiety and bustle,"
"Well, Miss Rodwell must marry a
Frenchman, who will take horto Paris,
and iu that, gay capital life spins along
like a painted humming-top—one sub-
dued hum of mingled business and
pleasure—a ceaseless round of delights."
"I do not care for empty pleasures,"
said Cora. "I love tbo rapture of the
woods and glens; but I wish thero wero
some kindred spirits in this village of
Lonsdale."
''I wish there were for your sake,"
Mr. Wood said, drily.
After that ho showed Mrs. Rodwell
his letter of introduction from Mr.
Chester. In this letlor Mr. Chester
represented Mr. Wood as a man to be
trusted implicitly. The testimonial
was addrossod to the beads'of tho linn
of builders who were employed in tho
restorations and repairs at thu manor-
house; and also Sir. Wood showed
Mrs. Rodwell some largu cheques
made out in his name—or rather, that
wore made payable to him, and signed
"John Chester."
"1 just want to place myself so well
in your esteem that you may not be
afraid to trust me, Mrs. Rodwell,"
Mrs. RodweIVs kind face beamed
with satisfaction. She was perfectly
convinced of tho extreme respectability
of this stranger, Mr. Wood.
Then tho garden gate opened slowly,
and a man with a handsome dark face,
but sonibro expression, ndvaueod to
meet them. This man was Mr. Rod-
well.
Tho manager took oil' his hat politely
enough when he saw tho stranger} but
he looked tired, and bored, and worried.
"I havo to apologize to you, sir,"
said Mr. Wood.
And then he told him who be was,
and showed his testimonials from Mr.
Cheater, and said how happy be should
be if Mr. Rodwell would agree to
what Mrs. Rodwell bad kindly proposed—that Mr. Wood should become
an inmate of Hazel Cottage.
"I shall be delighted, sir!" said Mr.
Rodwell, and hegriiHped tho hand of
tho stranger with a heartiness that a
little ostotlUhed that somewhat cynical
individual and set him wondering,
That night Mr. Wood slept nt the
Crown; but tho next day ho and his
luggage arrived at Hascal Cottage, and
he took up his abode there almost like
ono of tho family. He was away from
live o'clock in the morning till two iu
tho day, superintending the workmen
at tho manor-house, At two the Rud-
wells dined, and their hoarder always
sat down with thorn to dinner. After
dinner it somehow happened that Mr.
Wood found himself continually with
Cora. Her artless, vet intelligent remarks, delighted him, her swoet,
maidenly beauty, so like that of Die
wild white rose, enchanted him,
