Tbe Government Mast Sol
If the utterances of the opposition
organs in this province are to be accepted.as an expression of their con*
viotions, there is no doubt they have
oome to tbe conclusion that the pro*
vincial government must go. And
this conclusion is not tho result of
hasty impulse. It was reached long
ago, indeed the mental process of
which it ia the result began almost
immediately after the late general
.election. Aa soon as the votes had
'been counted, and the relative
strength of the two parties became
.apparent, these organs began to per-
■ceive that the power of the party of
progress and reform must be broken
or the country would certainly go to
tbe dogs. But such an announcement must rot go to the public with
two much suddenness. The organs
first began to predict all sorts of
things which would certainly come
to pass. Mr. Smithe and his followers oould not agree upon a cabinet, because every one of them
wanted a portfolio; then, when the
cabinet had beon formed, there was
no policy; when the policy had been
.announced, it could not be passed
'through the house j it was passed by
itliu house, but the Dominion would
.certainly interfere on behalf of the
-"people" (te. the organs) and disal-
Uow tbe legislation; but the legislation was not disallowed, and then
•tite organs began to attack the gov-
•eriment, the legislature, and the
jpolicy, Ono would imagine that
Ithese organs might have gathered
-wisdom from experience. Having
Hived to see their predictions of mis-
[fortune fail miserably, thoy should
Have .perceived the folly of attempting to mako water run up hill. The
elections whioh, according to their
prophetic visions, were to sweep the
I Smithe party out of existence, resulted in a majority of two to one in
Jfaror of that party. Tho govern
•men", whioh was to have fallen to
i pieces, .because of the lack of coke-
t-tton.Mii'lte material of whioh it was
compose*],'has shown itself a strong
government, ond has failed to exhibit
any signs of collapse j the affairs of
the province have been administered
with a vigor which becomes all the
more conspicuous when contrasted,
with 'that whioh pieceded it; there
appears to be a disposition on the
part of the government to deal fairly
.. ond equitably with the different sections of the province, ami to apply
i the revenue as far as possible on
- worka of permanent usefulness. The
. organ* have lately been engaged in
i in attempt to make it appear that
v the government are unpopular, and
(that they could not be reelected.
'But how can faith be put iu utter-
i ances which emanate fvoin a source
: already proved to be unworthy of
'-belief t In no instance, so far as we
.can remember, have tho political
-predictions of the organs been ful-
(filled; and we do not know of a
single circumstance which could be

Frauds In Diamonds.
Not many weeks ago a man came into
tbe shop of a well known pownbroker
in New York and exhibited a pair of
superb eight-carat diamond ear-rings.
They werejame,and looked liketweive-
earot gems. The man asked the loan
of $1000 upon them. Long and carefully the pawnbroker examined the
gems. His covetous eyes sparkled.
Be concluded that the stones were
genuine blue-white diamonds, which
are as rare as lhey sre beautiful. They
bring from «160 to (600 a carat. Tiff-
any&Oo. had one a while ago for which
thoy refused $1000 a [carat. But Iho
broker's admiration did not get the
better of his business instincts. Ho
declined to loan more than 8500 upon
the oar-rings. This the customer positively and promptly refused. After a
long argumont the contracting parties
compromised upon 9750. As soon as
the customer left the shop the broker
ordered his clerk (who was out-of sight
during the negotiations) to follow the
msn and buy the ticket at auy price.
The clerk oboyed, and, aftor some dickering, tho victim exohanged the tioket.
for (50. Wild with delight, tho broker
hastened to wash and polish his treasures. . But when he took them from
tho water a cry of astonishment escaped
him. The blue-White luster waa gone,
and,tohissurpriseandanger,theshrewd
expert found that he had paid a high
price for ordinary green-yellow diamonds, worth at the most (10 a carat
The stones wore painted.
" There are five men in New York
painting diamonds," said Detective
Britton. "Do you know how it is
done? Look here." Mr. Britton'drew
from his pocket a small package, which
ho carefully opened. It contained perhaps a tablespoonful of a very dark red
powder. "This is'a very simple nnd
familiar article," he said, "andean be
bought for (2 a pound, and that
amount'will paint all the diamonds in
Christendom. This littlo bottle, as you
seo, contains colorless fluid, also well
known nnd cheap. Now, we will put
a tiny grain of the powder upon this
plato and thon pour on v. few drops of
tho fluid. Then wc will mix the two
aud wo have a rich dark red liquid.
Very woll. Examine this stone." The
detective took a ring from his fingor.
The stone was a largo diamond with a
yellow-greenish cast, With a little
oatnel's-hair brush he gently painted
the under sido of the gem with the red
fluid i in a twinkling the greenish tint
disappeared and the stone glowed with
the peerless tints of a first water diamond! Mr. Britton then paintod the
stone completely, lt took at first a
blue-red huo, which, after a little rubbing with a woollen cloth, changed to
a deep, dark, lent iful blue. Held at
arm's length, the gem flashed and scin-
tilated like a spark of electricity.
" There I" exclaimed Mr. Britton,
"that is not a bad sham sapphire. A
roal sapphire of taht size would be worth
more than a diamond. Experts as, well
as buyers have been fooled by the pro-

Got nold of Ibe Wrong Judge.
Thoy havo somo vory good judges
in Now York. Judgo Van Brunt, who
recently sailed for Europe, is one of tho
best of them. Tho night before he
sailed a sharp attorney came to his
house to ask him to sign a judicial order
in an important case. The man pleaded
the great urgency of tho oase und the
fact that he had but little time to carry
his point, else ho would not havo come
to bother the judge when he was about
to leave the country. The judgo looked
over the papers hastily, and saw that
tho affidavit upon whicli this order was
based was a month old. Thia did not.
look like a vory pressing case.
" Why do you come to me in this irregular way 1" ho said. "Whydidyou
not come to me in chambers 1"
The man said he had no timo, and
that it was not convenient
The judge replied, "I shall not
sign this order. It is not convenient
for me, on the eve of a long departure,
to make auy ssch order."
The caller turned to go. As ho reached the door he turned and said.
" I shall expose you, sir, in tho newspapers. I know enough about you to
mako you sick."
Ordinarily this it enough to make any
New York oflleial come down. Van
Brunt called the man back in a vory
pleasant,tone of voice. Tho man
turned, and as he did so Van Brunt,
who is a powerful man, seised him by
the collar, threw open the front door,
and kicked him clear off the steps to
the sidewalk. " Put that in tho nows-
papor, too," said the judge, as he closed
tho door.

Au IH8 DimniwoK.— A Chicago
loading journal thus puts the matter:
The raids on the Chiness opium dens
are all right, and the more frequent and
vigorous tho belter, but why is a
Chinese opium den worse thau a Dutch
or Irish rum shop ? If anything, the
former is preferable to the latter. The
victim of the opium habit does not beat,
abuse, and maltreat his family—his
vice punishes himself, and it makes
quick work. If the Ghiiuse only voted
opium joints would, all at once, nssuino
An sir of respectability, and instead
of the present hue and cry against them
-ono would hear speeches in favor of
-' personal liberty," and against enforcing puritunfeal ideas upon those who
brought with them tho heaven given
rights of their fatherland. The right
to run nn opium joint in the prico of
American citizenship.
  n, —
There are said to be engaged in the
hutting and lumbsr industry of Canada
100,000 men who support families, and
un this basis it is estimated I lint.500,000
people are dopondont on thia occupation for support, or ouo-uinth of the
Dominion's population. The total investment ill industrial establishments
in Canada is (105,000,000, of which
(25,000,000 is in saw-mills ntil (50,
000,000 in lumber out-Ills.
The lloslun JYoKHei' gives tlio following hit: In Heaven wo aro told thero
is more joy over one sinner that ropon-
teth than over iiinoty-andnino who
have never gone astray. It is just the
other way here below. There is moro
joy over ouo righteous man who goes
astray than over ninoty-niid-nine thousand sinners who havo kopt nt it nll
their lives.

Nothing to Doi
There is, perhaps, no country in
tho woild where greater inducements
for investment imty be found than
' in British Columbia. This is tho
youngest province ami the lenst
developed in tho Dominion, and yet
it is tho largest in urea und tlio
richest in resources. A man possessed of ordinary intelligence and
moderate capital who could make
(500 a year in the eastern provinces
ahould find no difficulty in making
91000 here. It is our very youth
and undeveloped condition, nnd our
boundless resources, _ which mako
this a most-inviting field for investment aud enterprise. But 'among
those who have came among us, and
are now coming, there are somo who
do not succeed, and who go tack to
the old land with nu ill report of
British Columbia. With very fow
exceptions these people nre their
own worst enemy. They hare come
with absurd expectations, and disappointment wus the inevitable result. People do not pick up nuggets of gold in the stroots of our
cities any more than they piok up
steamboats and railways und factories in cities beyond the mountains. There is no country we know
of where a man mny sit down with
folded arms nnd become a millionaire. The laws of trade, like the
* laws of nature, are fixed nnd roso-
luto, and will not relax at the whim
of thoso who lack the energy ucces-
Bary to grapple successfully with
the dittiuulties which stand everywhere to guard the way to fortune.
There ia no country, we believe, in
whioh well-directed, persevering effort so seldom fails na in British
Columbia. Wo have in this province scores of men who ten or fifteen years ago were not worth $1000
nnd uow they are worth ten or
fifteen times that sum. Farmers,
as a rule, have made more money
than any other olass, because thoy
took fewer risks and their profits
were mora certain. The intelligent
fanners of Britisli Columbia nre
nearly all wealthy, and aro adding
thousands of dollars every year to
their wealth. And yot a great deal
of our farming is much less profitable than It might be. In many
sections of the country there is a
great laok of system and intelligence in the cultivation of the soil.
Wo have seen tracts of the most
beautiful laud allowed to lie waste
and barren while the proprietor
struggled to make an existence out
of some precarious trading or fishing or hunting. The farm he held
was full of hidden gold, hut his
shiftless life was wasted in gather-
. ing leaves whioh turned to dust at
his touch. Jn this country the
lands yield with wonderful liberality, aud nothing need go to waste
for want of a market. But land is
by no means our only resource. We
have timber enough to constitute
in itself a mine of wealth. The
industry of manufacturing lumber
is very profitable, the supply of
material is almost without limit, and
the demand is quite in excess of the
supply. As the country advances
this demand will always bo increasing. Everywhere new buildings are
in process of construotion, and our
mills ure taxed to their utmost capacity, Then there is coal. The
demand for coal all along the northern Pacific coast is growing with a
rapidity which cannot bo overtaken.
Not only on Vancouver Island, but
on the mainland, and on the islands
along the north-west coast, coal
measures are found in abundance.
There is no doubt but British Columbia has more coal and better coal
than all the rest of the Paoifio coast
together. In her own hands she
holds the key whioh regulates the
coal market. Those who have gone
into coal mining, and prosecuted it
with prudence, are among the richest men in British Columbia today.
We have also many rich treasures
in the sea. The fish canning industry has grown, perhaps, with more
rapid strides than any other in the
province. Thia is because it has
been found so exceedingly profitable.
Son* of oar canners have made in
one season as much money as would
keop them all their lives in comfort.
Thero ia still room for moro canneries, and tor oyster beds and fish oil
1 ind guano factories. These industries require considerable capital;
bnt there are many openings where
men with small means may enter
with ■ nasonable hope of success,
At th* eoanti7 daratopi saw- indwrr |
tries will spring up. There are very
fow manufacturing establishments
iu British Columbia. And yet this
should be a good country for manufacturers. Wages are high, and
skilled labor is scarce; but we are
very far removed from tho old manufacturing centres, and the cost of
bringing goods from the east is so
great that factories here would
have a largo margin for profits.
Three years ago there was only one
tailoring establishment in this city.
Now there are five, and all are full
of orders. Within the last few
months n harness maker nnd a
wagon maker have opened establishments, and both nre kept busy
to meot tho demand for their wares.
There are many other departments
where openings exist, and where
money could bo made. The number of people who huvo come into
the province during the past summer, und who remain, is very large.
Next year it is believed immigration
will be vory much greater than it
has ever yet been. The settlement
of tho country will undoubtedly
creute an increased demand not only
for the productsef the soil and the i
hut for all kinds of manufactured
articles. There will bo required
nlso increased means of transportation. New stage lines, new ferries,
new steamboats, will have to carry
the produce of ' these multiplied
farms to market. There are many
settlements springing up along the
river and the coasts, and suitable
steamers are wanted to connect them
with the centres of consumption
and supply. There will be more
mills required also to grind the
grain and stop the importation of
foreign flour. The supply of butter
ami eggs, in this part of the province nt least, is far below the re
quiremeuts of tho oities. The man
who will establish a first-class
creamery, or a poultry-yard, may
look for profits on a large scale.
There are all about ns chances for
all classes of men, and he who cannot find remunerative employment
in British Columbia need never hope
to riso in nny country above the
sphere of a dependent.

changes the secretiotis and jmrifies the
blood; heals the irritated parts} gives
strength to Uio digestive organs; brings,
the liver to iti proper action, and imparts
strength to tho whole system.    Such is
THE IMMEDIATE AND aATISFACTOltY EFFECT that it is warranted to brcah up the
most distressing cough in a few hours*
time, if not of too long standing. /( is
warranted to give entire satisfaction,
eves in the most co)\firmed cases of Con-
sumption! It is warranted notto-produco

delicate child, although it is an active
and powerful remedy for restoring the

this year aggrigate $160,090, It waa
resolved to sond some additional missionaries to Japan, nnd one member of
the board promised a special donation
of 8500 per annum for several years for
that purpose.

Freight Charges,—The people of
Victoria, at least somo of them, seem
to think that New Westminster merchants are influenced by jealous motives in sooking direct communication
between this oity and San Franoisco.
One of our merchants received tho other
day a consignment of goods, 10 cases,
frum San Franoisco via Victoria. Tho
changes from San Franoisco to Victoria,
including wharfage at tliat place, wero
99.00. From Victoria to this city the
charges, including drayoge, &c, were
$10.95! Do the people of Victoria
imagine that New Westminster merchants will stand that sort of thing
without kicking ?

Sunday Closing.—Tho Irish Sunday Olosing Bill was passed by ths
Imperial Parliament in 1878, and so
strong was tho opposition to the measure aud so timid were its friends in
regard to its actual successJhat it waa
only passed for four years, and even
then the four leading cities were exempt from its provisions. Last year
an aot was passed extending the law
for another year, and this year a similar measure was adopted for still
another year's extension. Probably
next year tho aot will be made permanent, but what an amount of potter
ing thero is about a measuro of such
national importance

Tab Dock Money.—Lost Saturday
the provincial government received
advice from Ottawa that $120,000 had
been placed to their credit as the first
instalment of tho dock money refund.
But the Standard isn't satisfied yet.
It declares that' the Dominion government will taku over tho dock and
finish it at the expense of thu province! The Standard must Wmiatukon.
We certainly understood it to any not
long ago that thu Dominion government would pock the dock in ico and
take it to Ottawa as a memento of
provincial folly. But- wo havo gut the
$120,00 nny wny. and the $220,000

Tlie GlHlllwhack Exhibition,
In our last issue wo gavo a complete list
of prizes awarded at the .Agricultural ex"
htbttion hold ol CV.-llfwnaSk on Thursday. The exhibit was on the whole very
creditable to tho peoplo of Clillliwhaoki
and in some respects lt would do credit to
any province in tho Dominion. Tho ox-
hlbliion grounds ate situated about three-
quarters of a m Ilo from the landing. They
aro enclosed by a nout fence, anJa building has boon erected thereon which, wo
believe, Is to'bo replaced next year by a
moro commodiotiH and substantial.one.
Outside the building the display was not
largo. Tho weaMicr being wet and disagreeable, many poople who would othorwiso have entered left tboir siock at home.
Among tho animals deserving notice were
Mr, B. Stevenson's s&lllon --Gray Prince,"

tho marks of good breeding. Tho Inside
display was excellent. Tho show of f.nit
surprised overy one,  Thoio wero apples,
J tears, peaches, plums, grapes, und small
ruits. Some of tho applos measured 14
Ins, in circumferonco, and ono of Uio '.ears

excellent. The lst prize fall whcr.t, shown
by Mr. H. Kipp, was ail excellent sample,
and the spring wheat, oa:«, barley, und
peas were also worthy of noio. Mr. Weils
showed two fine chooses from his cheerio
factory, and thoro wo.-o several very excellent exhibits In butier and bread. Mrs,
K. Stevenson nnd Mrs. A. G. Wells showed
somo wax work fruit and flowers which
showed that the ladles of Chilliwhack aro
not by any means deficient i.i ariisJc taste
and knowledge. Thero were also some
samples of drawing, fancy and plain

Chicago, Sept. 20. —J. N. Hannford,'
genoral freight agent of the Northern
Pocitic, has addressed a telegram to
tho general freight agents of the St.
Paul, Hock Island and Northwestern
roads, to the effect that after Octobor
1, tho rate to and from San Francisco
by the Northern Pacific road will be
the same as via direct lines, making
tho rates at the same time to Tacoma
and Seattle tho same as to Portland,
and live conts for lighterage for Port
Townsend and Victoria. Tho Northern Pacific asks a share of the business
between hero and the Paoifio coast. A
decision has been reserved, because no
pooling arrangement was entered into
between tho Pacino and Northern Pa-
{Seine roads at the recent Ban Francisco
ihceting. The lines to whom the telegram is addressed feel inclined to take
advantage of this new arrangement,
because tho Northern Pacific business
ib not pooled, and because it is a pool
on the business going by. the Iowa
trunk lines to the Pacific coast via
'Union Pacific road, that could as well
go via Chicago and Omaha or Kansas
city.

.London, Oct. 5. — O'Donnell the

statement emphatically denying flint
he was sent tu murder Carey. Hu my»
ho and Carey wero sitting togeUuu- in
a cabin, when Carey began to fasten a
quarrel upon him, and O'Donnell remarked about a rumor that Power, by
wiiMi namo Carey shipped, was Carey;
whereupon Carey ami he started up
with pistols drawn. O'Donnell gninned
Carey's collar with his left hnii.l. but
being paralyzed, lost his grasp. Carey
then pushed him down ngaiuut the end
of a table, putting It's pistol in O'Don-
iu'l's face O'Dcmiioll grasped the
pistol and tlrtd his own, Carey's weapon falling on the floor six feet away.
Carey ran and partly stooped to pick
it up, when O'Donnoil fired again, not
iluliiifi-ntoly, but to save his life. According to O'Domiell's statement, the
story of Carey's son that he took his
father's pistol from a bag after tho
shooting, is contradicted; he took it off
the floor.

she oould not breathe ra it; tho walla
and ceilings seemed na if thoy wero

talking of going to hor oouain's chateau

the Willougliby boys vexed her too
very much, for she was proud, thoy
say all Spaniards aro; but, £oor fel
low, he novor complained, though ho
had many disappointments nnd had to
work so hard. Mamma used to lie
nnd fan herself all day long on the
eoueh in tho little parlor, down-staus,
and look so ill and sad-oh, those
wero misorablo days," iiuished Milly,
with a littlo shrug.
"You are happy now!
"Oh, ao happy," alio said, with a
sparklo in her eye; "happier than I
have ovor been in my lifo, at least
since wo havo learnt to bear her loss,
but at first it wna very bad. I did not
care for tho Grange aa much as Arthur
did- it was grand, of course, but so
dull. I uaod to have Italian, and

Nellie, is ho not ugly!"
I politely avoided tho quostion	
"He is not at all liko you."
"No, I am mamma on n miniature

not at all handsome; but ho looka

the glass, Milly p»«ud down hor hair,
rearranged her neck-ribbon, and taking a pair of sparkling oar rings from
an Indian caakot 011 the toilet-table,
put them on.
"Do you like then', Nellie?'
"They are pr< •>, but I like you

"Do yeul" sV aid. shaking her

it; all mamma's jewols were sold;
oome, what a timo I have been koop-
iug you," and she run down, nnd I
followed her. .
"Will you walk into my parlor, aaid
tho spider to the fly; it iB tho prettiest
little parlor that ovor youdidapy,"
and with gracoful fun sho put mo into
an oaay chair, and then began tying
ou a largo white muslin apron.
"My littlo maid ia out, Nollie, so
don't bo shocked if you aeo me como
in with the tea-tray."
"May I help youl" I osolaimed.
"No, you juat sit there nnd amuse
EJiirself, I insist on it;" and with a
ttio willful gesture she ran out of the
room.
I looked round at tho parlor, which
was simply but prettily furnished, and
sad an air of refinement about it.
There were aomo water-color aketchea
on the walla, signed M. V. by Milly'.
tattaful fingers; delicate mualin cur-
taina, a canary in a gilt cage, a hanging-basket with aomB creeping plant,
and a maiden-hair fern in tho center-
table, and a vase of cut flowers on the
mantel-shelf. There were several
memontocs oi past grandeur, a mother-
of-pearl work-table, a aat in-lined basket, and somo liandaomoly - bound
hooka on the side-cupboards. I was
examining one, Arthur Vaughan's
school-prize, whon Milly re-ontered
with the tea-tray; nnd I could not
holp admiring the costly China cups
and saucers; Milly looked delighted.
"Yes, they were mamma's, but this
great common tea-pot does not suit
them; we want our silvor service,"
I took np tho delicate little violet
■nd gold cup, to examine it moro
closely.
"Bridget broke one of them, carry,
ing out the tray one day; I had a good
cry over it—lor I love these old toa-
cups;" and thon she went aud came
tripping backwards and forwards with
one thing after another, till she set
out the prettiest littlo tea-table imaginable. A crusty new loaf, butter with
tho globules of wet slill clinging to its
firm creamy surface; new-laid eggs in
a moss host, purplo mulberries nestling
in their leaves, brown Windsor pears,
honey in the comb, and honey out of
it, and freshly-baked biscuits looking
e°?r.,rsation won my heart, before
h'.if an hour was passed.
I was surprised to see Mr. Clivo"a
face look so worn when close; even
his smiles were rare and anxious; but
tbe slight hauteur he had manifested
at the first moment of introduction,
vaniahed and gavo place to a high-bred
case of manner, and agreeable though
quiet conversation. Ho seemed to be
on intimato terms with Herwald; his
faco brighttitled nt a word from hiin,
nud hia tnno to Milly waa gentle and
chivalrous in tho extreme; hia haughty
head seemed to incline instantly at
her ulightost word, aa sho aat there
tho most winsome and dobonuaire little Riiatress in ihe world. But what
pleaaed mc moot was tho absence of
all false ahame, tho natural way in
which Arthur and Milly entertained
their friends ill tho poor cottage; no
roferenco made to- past grandeur after
Miliy's girlish talk up-atairs, no apologies for scant room and small allowance of toaapooua. When Milly
wanted her tea-pot refilled Arthur
went laughing to.the kitchen to re-
plouiBh it, and 011 the second time
/Horwald undated on doing the same.
"Nouaoao," ho aaid, on Miliy's pro.
testing, with a heightened color, that
thoro waa no need; '.'aa if I did not
know the kitchen and tho great black
kettle by this time," and he vanished,
gingerly holding the tea-pot aa if it
wore alive. Presently from tho distance sounded a most fearful feline
squall; Milly turned palo and wrung
her hands, exclaiming—
"Poor pussy, my poor Minnie, he's
certainly killed her," aud ran out'of
the room.
Then followed nuny endearing epithets on Miliy's part, and most coaxing
entreaties on Horwald's to pussy to do
Botnethiug or go somewhere; and juat
aa Arthur, with a smiling apology, was
foing after them, they reappeared,
ierwald in a state of suppressed
laughter, and Milly half crying.
"What on earth has happened 1"
Herwald shook his head as ho deposited the unlucky tea-pot, and .kindly said:
"Oh, Arthur, poor pussy, he's spilt
a lot of scalding water over her tail,
and she's gone up the acullery chimney, and wo can't get her down."
Thoro was a perfect shout of laugh-
tor, in which the culprit joined; evon
Mr. Olive, to whom she lookod for
sympathy, smiled gravely.
■'Never mind, Milly," ss.id her
lu-otlior, "aho'll bo all right directly.
I dare say it iB as much tho Bight of a
strange man as her burna, that drove
her up tho chitntioy. Leave her alono,
and she'll be sure to como down direct*

So pence wns restored, but the little
mistress' fun was subdued, till on Arthur's proposal to go into tho back garden, whicli was only to he reached by

Mill/ colored a little as she battled
about again; and then clapped her
hands as a signal tor the gentlemen to
' -soma in. Oh, how the four men filled
np the tiny room, and what a squeeze
and commotion there was till all was
tattled. Milly received Mr. Cliv
with the thy grace with which she hnd
tntl in comparative tranquility.
Milly and I sat ou the low bench
under the mulberry-tree, Mr. Clive
lying on lhe grass at our feet; thu other
three walking to and fro on the narrow lawn in cheerful talk. Mr. Clive
began telling us of n sad ease he hnd | Victoria, B. C.
juat boen to see, in whicli he was interested, nnd Milly asked him nfter
one or two others that had come under
his notice lately, and with the details
of which he had made her acquainted,
He answered her, and then remarked,
sadly;
"These things are cruel aud heartless, as you say, but it is a hard nnd
cruel world, and full of very sorrowful
things; one meets with such every
dny/'
"Nay, Mr. Clivo, you shall not soy
that," said Milly; "it is a beautiful
world; thero is trouble in it of course,
but there is happiness enough to counterbalance it, Vou are affected by
what you have seon to-day, or you
irould not speak so; who can sny life is
bitter and hard and unlovely on sueh
an ovening as this, looking up at that
glorious setting sun, and this blue sky,
smiling over our heads? Oh, Mr.
Clive," cried earnest Milly, "and you
a clergyman, too,"
"Yes," he sighed, "and I a clergyman; hut we look on different sides of
the samo picture, you and I, not every
one has your rose-colored spectacles,
Miss Milly, raore's the pity, and your
bright lot has beon so sheltered, thank
Heaven."
She slopped him gravely, and with a
little dignity.
"I think, Mr. Clive, you must own
that trouble is not unknown to ine.
Do you think it is nothing," she continued, tho tears gathering to her toft
black eyes, "to lose, a home such as
ours—nothing to exchange wealth for
poverty, luiury and ease for work aud
comparative privation 1 Do you think
it is uot a trouble for mu to see Arthurs bright prospects destroyed, and
he bearing daily drudgery to patiently
—nothing to lose our mother, and to
he alone and orphans in the world—it
this nothing V and her littlo plump
brown hands worked indignantly.
The clergyman's hulf-veilod eyes
rested on her face as she spoke, with a
look of pity.
"You have mistaken me; far be it
from ino to say your life has been free
from trouble.   This discipline which
Is to fit you fur a higher and batter
existence has indeed been nobly borne;
"we know," and hia voice became low
and  liquid as he  spoke,—"that no
chastening teemeth to be joyous, but
grievous; yours has doubtless appeared
so to you, and it is not for me to invite comparison with othor lots harder
still; but oh, Mis3 Milly, it was not
of trouble suoh as this I spoke, when
I ca'lcrt lifo eruel and bitter; things
such ns theso brin'g no sting with them:
no indeed, thank Ood, this ia not tho
canker-worm   that is life-destroying;
believe mo, there' are those who have
gone through life, bearing such strange
and  hidden  scars, such thorn-laden
crosses,   sueh    worn    and   suffering
hearts, that it is a mystery and temptation of doubt to know why Heaven
permits sueh lingering torture and yet
suffers them to live.   Oh, Miss Milly,
there are .worse martyrdoms than the
visible  cross, or the wild beasts of
Ephesus, than, the fagot and the stake
uf old times; thero it that which destroys, yet will not kill, which saps life
of joy, uf  comfort,  uf  peace  even;
and when tho veil is withdrawn from
all human  hearts, these will be acknowledged nt the trno martyrs, who
have borne tlm burden and tho heat
