The 0. P. B. Terminus.
All Uio Victoria papers lutve had
a kiok at Fort Moody since it became known that the torniinus liar-
bov was solidly frozen up. It was
quite natural that they should, for
anything that dees not bring griat
to tbe Victoria mill is regarded by
the people at the capital ns badly
situated or badly managed. For
once the three papers are iu accord.
In harmony the/ shout for Esquimalt as the terminus. If Vancouver
Island had not been by nature
separated from tho continent by a
broad sheet of water, Esquimalt harbor would certainly have been an
excellent terminus for our great
railway. But the water lias always
seemed to us a fatal obstacle in the
way of inch au arrangement. To
bo sure tho gulf could bo crossed by
a ferry capable, of carrying unbroken
trains; but such a ferry would be
exceedingly expensive, and there are
many times when it could not be
crossed at all with safety. The only
satisfactory railway connection be
tween tho island and mainland would
bo a tunnel under the gulf—which
is quite out of the question. Wc
are afraid Esquimalt will never be
the terminus of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. But no one who is acquainted with all the facts will deny
that the selection of Fort Moody was
an error. For many reasons it can
never be mado to accommodate the
buildings and appliances necessary
for a large trade, such as may be
expected to spring up ut tho tor-
minus, except at very great cost.
The situation is altogether unsuitable
for a commercial city, and the ice
blockade of the past two weeks
shows that tho harbor itself cannot
always be relied upon. Another
serious objtotion to Port Moody as
a terminus has been brought to light
during the past few months. The
piles upon whioh the Government
wharf iB built were driven less than
a year ago, but it has been discovered lately that' some of them are already nearly eaten through by sea
worms. Not long ago one of these
piles was broken off in an attempt
to straighten it up, and an examination revealed the fact that lt had
been completely honeycombed by
the worms, and rendered unfit for
support. This objection, we believe,
would lie against any part of Burrard Inlet, tor these destructive
worms are said to be very numerous
along the whole inlet. From experience in wharf building it has
been found that piles driven with
the bark on will stand about three
years, whereas those without bark
do not averago more than one year.
Experienced men on tho inlet would
never think of putting down piles
without bark; but the Dominion
Government, whioh almost invariably
blunders when it undertakes to do
anything in British Columbia, had
the railway piles barked beforo they
were driven. If the Government
had mnde tha terminus at this city,
whero it should have been, none of
theso embarrassments would have
been encountered. Here wo havo
fresh water, and no worms, Here
wo have plenty fiat land admirably
situated for railway buildings and
manufactories. The cost of bringing
the railway here would have been
loss than it will now cost at Port
Moody. With a very moderate expenditure tha entrance to Fraser
river could be made deep enough to
accommodate ships of any draught,
and ice need not interfere with navigation. As a railway terminus New
Westminster is unquestionably preferable to Port Moody.
Tlio weather prophet of the New
Orleans Picayune snys that coeoanut
■hells ground in quantities and mixed
with blatk pepper indicates that the
icnon will bo mild.

The 0. P. It. Syndicate.
The Governing. Cimnnitteo of the
Now York Stock Exchange lately add'
ed nearly $80,870,000 in. stocks and
bonds to dealings en the Exchange.
The principal item fn this is $55,000,-
000 ef the stack of the Canadian Pacific Railway, out of the authorized
issue of (100,000,000. In answer to
nn enquiry of tha Governing Commit,
too in regard to the financial ability of
the Canadian Pacific Company to complete the unfinished portions of ths
road and its resources for that purpose,
Messrs. J. S. Kennedy & Co., the
fiscal agents, mado the following reply:
"Wo have now completed and in operation 1,730 miles, leaving 1,570 milts
yet to complete, of which the Dominion Government buiTIs at itt own expense and transfors>"'o us the portion
of tht road from ForV Moody ta Kamloops, consisting of 213 milos, thus
leaving for the Company to build 1,303
milts, the resource, for which are tlie
balance of tho cash subsidy from the
Government, amounting to $17,324,-
112; the proceeds of tho land grant
bonds not yet drawn from the Government, amounting to $13,101,734; tht
proceeds of about 18,000,000 acres of
selected land, tit for settlement, which
the Company will hold after retiring
the balance of the existing land grant
bonds, aud the prccttds of tho $75,-
000,000 of stock remaining to bo issued,
of which n syndicate has just boon
formed tn take $30,000,000. Tho
1,730 miles npw in operation consist
partly of the road built nnd turned
ovor to the Company by the Government; partly of tho road acquired by
purchase, as stated ih the official memorandum which accompanied our application; and partly of the line constructed by the Company. The latter
portions and the cost of the equipment
of the whole line have been provided
for by the Company from its own capital and from the Government subsidiet
applicable thereto. Undor the general
law of Canada each railroad is authorized to pay during construction up to
6 per cent, per annum to the stockholders on thoir stock. Tho Company
has paid 6 per cent, upon the stock
issued, but wo propose hereafter to
only pay 5 por cent, upon the capital
stock, and that is to apply to all the
stock."

New Process of Making Gas.
Chicago, Feb. 4.— In- an interview
one of tho officers of the West Side
Gat Company said an inventor had
patented an improved method of producing gas, by which the price could
be reduced to a point making it cheaper
than kerosene for lighting, and cheaper
thau coal fer heating. The method
had been in practical operation, privately, under the auspices of the company for a year, and tho company
were about ready to tear out its cooking benchet and substitute the new
process. With this improvement the
company claims to have no fear ef the
electric light. The method is to' resolve water into component parts of
oxygen and hydrogen, and mingle it
with a small proportion of petroleum.
It is claimed the gas produced is much
clearer and moro brilliant than under
the present process.
What would the little children do if
thore were no old faces to look into;
no tender, broken' voices to soothe
their joys and sorrows? Fathers are
only men to their children; they never
take the littlo ones on wondorful journeys; there is no room among their
ledgers and bank-books for broken
dolls and battered kites; they have no
time to tell of the babe in tho manger,
and where heaven is, and if Jacob's
ladder reaches there. "Oh, won't you
got a whipping when you got home i"
said one child to another who liad been
guilty of some naughtiness. "No,"
was the instant response; "I've got a
grandmother!" That would, indoed,
be a dreary childhood that had no
memory of white hair and patient,
loving eyes- -no old peoplo of its very
Tho Chief of tho Bureau of Statistics at Washington reports that the
wholo numbtr of immigrants that lauded in the United States during tho
year 1882 was 712,542. Of these 229,-
000 were from Germany, 77,725 wero
from England and Wales, 00,401 were
from Ireland, 58,742 wero from Sweden, 20,317 were from Italy, 26,185

It is said that tho custom of making
New Yoar calls is on the wane. This
year "but society in Now York merely

An exchange declares that the
lion-growers and oyster mon of
Washington Territory are becoming
tho nabobs of Puget Sound. They
havo made so much money during
the past season that they don't know
what to do with it. There is littlo
question but the hop business will
mnke a fortune to some one who
has tho capital and pluck to stock a
hop farm in British Columbia. Now,
who will firat reap tho golden harvest 1
Tlie Oity Loan.
The two schotnes for oity improvements lmvo now beeu published, aud
tho ratepayers arc in a position to
compare thoir respective merits. Wc
are afraid, howevor, that neither of
them is by any means comprohensivo
enough to meet the circumstances.
Mr. Brown proposes to borrow
$35,000, whilo tho scheme of Mr.
Feriis asks only 820,000. Wo lmvo
expressed the opinion already that
the loan should bo not less than
$50,000. ft is easier to,borrow a
large sum than a small one, and tho
oxpense of negotiating a $.10,000
loon would bo considerably less per
cent. Twenty thousand dollars judiciously expended would mako considerable improvement, but tho
works necessary to put our city in a
condition to invite population aud
commerce are vastly beyond tho resources of such a sum. If we borrow at all, let us borrow enough for
our requirements and prepare ourselves to reap the full benefit of the
prosperity wliich awaits us. It will
take mora thon §20,000 to put our
streets iu proper condition. Then
the sewerage system wilt roquire
$5,000 or more.' Mr. Ferris asks
$2,000 for a city hall; but every
person must know that a respectable
building such as would be required
for that purpose could not be put up
and furnished for less than $8,000
or $10,000. Then we want n wharf
at the foot of Mary st. for the river
ferry. There is no duitbt that tho
new Government will tako steps
very soon for the establishment of a
steam ferry, and farmers coming
across the river must be exempt
from wharfage duos. A city wharf
will, therefore, become necessary.
And whon the wharf is built nnd
the ferry in operation, wo must havo
a market. Thoro is a square lying
vacant between Agnes and Prevost
sts. which was originally intended
for that purpose. This square should
be stumped and leveled, and hero
the market and city hall should be
erected. In eastern cities it is customary to compel oil butchers and
fishmongers to lmvo stalls on tho
market. If a proper building were
erected, with stalls beneath, and
offices above, the rent saved by tho
city Council, added to the rent ob
taiued from these stalls and offices,
would more than pay the interest on
$10,000. The establishment of a
market has long been demanded, aud
it was never mora urgently needed
than it is now. We believe the
annual exhibition of the British
Columbia Agricultural Association
will bo hold in this city next fall,
nnd it is time we were considering
the best means of accommodating
that exhibition. We know of no
better place than tlio market square.
It is adjacent to the Brill Shed,
which is the only public building
largo enough for the display whicli
may be expected; and if that bo
found too small, a portion of the
Court House or Land Office might
possibly bo obtained. Now, if the
exhibition is to be held ou Market
Square, it is time thnt steps were
taken to have tlie square leveled;
and then it would be ready for tho
erection of the city hall. There are
a great many public reserves in various parts of this city, not one of
which is serving any useful purpose.
We arc of opinion that one of these
reserves should be leveled and fenced
and laid out for a pleasure ground.
Tha cost would probably not exceed
$1,000 or $1,500, and the. result
would bo a lasting attraction to the
place. A park cannot bo mado attractive in n day, oro year. After
it has been leveled, it 'requires time
for the grass to grow and tho treos
to attain a size which will make them
attractive or useful for shade, It
will take eight or ten years for that,
and the beginning ought not to bo
delayed.   In this park there should
bs a place where young men could
exercise themselves in such healthful
games as cricket, base ball, lacrosse,
or other athletic recreations. Such
u place is very greatly needed. And
tho expenditure would not be without practical result. Beautify your
city, and people will seek it as o
dosirublo place of residence. And
we want manufactories. There aro
a few manufacturing industries
which wo believe wonld very soon
spring up in this city if public attention were drawn to thom in a practical way. Wo want a flour nnd
oatmeal mill, n tub and barrel factory, a woolen mill, a boot and shoe
factory, and a large tannery and
foundry. A tnnncry and foundry
we havo already, but the capacity of
both should be much more than
doubled, and the result would be
alike prolitablo to tho proprietors
and tho city. If ton or twelve thousand dollars iu the shape of bonuses
woro tivullablo out of tho loan, wo
are convinced that at loast soveral of
these industries would soon bo established, nnd the result would bo a
vast increaso in the city trade.
Thove seeniH to bo a general opinion
among the members of tho Council
tlmt a by-law for $50,000 would not
carry. We belicvo it would, if a
properly-considered scheme of public
improvements were devised and fairly discussed, ond the immense advantages properly understood. The
additional revenue in the shape of
rents from city hall and 'water
frontages, and from increased assessments on property whero im
provomonts had beon made, would
probably pay the wholo interest ou
the loan. We have already pointed
out that it may be necessary to obtain legishttivo sanction before such a
scheme could be carried out. All
the more reason, therefore, for immediate action. Let il bill be prepared for that purposo, and let u«
not sit still and idle when by the
display of u roosonnble amount of
energy and forethought wo may
placo this city in a position whero
she shall reap richly the roward of
our endeavors.

Tho Council of tho Church Association havo issued tho following statement as to cortain illegalities wliich
continue to bo practiced at St. Albans,
Holboni and at St. Peter's, London
docks." On Christmas day, at tho
former, Mr. Muckonochie, who was
the celebrant, woro chasuble, colored
stole and - biretta. Water wac mixed
with tho.sacramental wine, both being
brought from a credence table. Tlie
celebrant stood with his back to the
people, and he knelt and prostrated
himself during prayer al consecration,
and "Agnus Doi" was sung during reception of tho elements. Tho sign of
the cross was made at consecration of
elements, and also when distributing
tho same to the communicants. Thore
was a slight elevation of paten and cup
during prayer of consecration, and a
similar elevation of alms. Tho reading
of tho epistle, gospel and collect wns
dono witli back to the peoplo. Two
lighted candleB stood during the service on what seemed .to be the table,
and the sign uf the cross was mado during tho singing of the Nicene creed,
and when pronouncing the blessing.
There were othor illegalities, auch as
tho colored stole worn by the preacher,
his crossings in tho pulpit, his frtquent
prostrations and turning toward tlie
east. At the morning service at St.
Peter's, London docks,, on Sunday
last, the Vicar celebrated. There woro
six lighted candles on the communion
table during the servico. At the consecration prayer two more were added,
as in Romish churches, the Vicar pro*
cess ionized up to the table with acolytes and persons bearing a processional cross before him, as is done in the
cose of Romish Archbishops. Incense
was burnt, and used ceremoniously as
at high moss. The Vicar was vested
in alb, girdle, stole, maniple, chasuble
and biretta, and was assisted by two
other ministers, after tho fashion of
tho Romish deacon and sub-deacon at
high mass—one vested in alb, girdle,
stole and maniple, the other in alb,
girdle nnd maniple. Tlie celebrant
turned liis back to the people during
the prayer of consecration, so as to
prevent their seeing the manual acts.
He prostrated himself after the prayer
of consecration, elevated the water
high above his head, and also the cup,
during which elevations a small bell
was rung. Tho celebrant alone communicated, during which tho "Agnus
Dei" was sung. The cup was ceremonially rinsed and wiped. There is a
cross over the communion table and a
crucifix over the pulpit, stations of the
eross on the walls, and a confessional
at the side. The Vicar gave notico
that confessions would be heard that
day. Prayers of the congregation were
asked for tho repose of the souls of two
pemons deceased.—London Times,

tho Board of Management are acting
without much discretion.

Bible Society Meetim*.
The annual' meeting of the New
Westminster Branch Bible Society was
held in tho Presbyterian Church on
Thursday evening. There was n large
attendance. W. J. Armstrong, Esq.,
M.P.P., President of the Society,occu-
pied the Chair. After devotional exercises the Rev, Mr. Jamieson, Secretary, road the report for last year.
From this report it appeared that the
total number of copies of the Scriptures sold and put in circulation by
this Branch during the year was 246,
Of theso copies 51 were Chinese New
Testaments, and 5 Italian Bibles. A
total sum collected here and in other
places in this district of 8198.76 was
sent to tho Parent Society. Colporteur work was done by Mr. James
Macfarlano for sovoral weeks at the
different camps on the railroad works
between Yale and Lytton, nt Maplo
Ridge, and at Nanaimo and Wellington. This work was done at the expense of the Parent Sooiety in Toronto, Ont.
The adoption of' the report was
moved and seconded by Rov. E. Robson and Rev. W. J. Dowler, B, A.,
who spoke at some length "ii the work
City Council.
In consequence of tho late hour at
which the minutes of last Monday's
Council were written up, and tho press
of other concens, we found it impossible to publish a report of tho proceedings iu last issue. Wo shall summarize
them briefly as follows: Mr. Robt.
Law was granted a lease of 2 water
lots adjoining the foundry, at the
usual rent. The Mayor stated that
Mr. Hayward had promised to have
the obstructions removed from the
vicinity of tho new post-onico very
soon, and that Mr. Trutch proposed to
put down an asphalt pavoineut whon
tho building is completed. Mr. E.
Ferris was engaged as lamp-lighter at
835 per month. Teuders for the Col-
umbia-st, oxtension were oponed, as
follows: J. A. Calbick, 83,472; J.
McMullen, 83,480; Forrest & Smith,
83,600; Lever & Currie, 83,550; J.
Pattorson, 83,780; Thos. MoKay, 84,-
200. A now plan, drawn up by Mi. J.
McMullen, was presented for tlio same
work, and after some discussion this
plan was received in preference to the
other and new tenders asked for. Mr..
G. E. Corbould -was appointed City
Solicitor for the yoar, and Mr, VV. N.
Bole was appointed Police Magistrate
at same salary as last year. Tenders
we're ordered for work en Clinton St.
and Lee Alloy. Mr. Ferris presented
his improvement scheme, particulars
of which appeared in last issue. After
discussion bath schemes wore left to
the consideration- of a committee composed of Messrs Brown, Ferris, Howison and Curtis. Coun. Howison gave
notice that at noxt meeting he would
submit plans for improving Dallas and
Blaokie sts. in lieu of Columbia st.,
and for improvonienta on Columbia st.
Council adjourned till Thursday afternoon.
The Counoil met on Thursday afternoon, pursuant to adjournment. The
members were all present, except
Coun. Howison. The tenders on Mr.
McMullen's plan were opened, and
wero as follows: J. McMullen, 82,-

82,091; Jos. Wintemute, 83'295 and
83,160; Hoy & Fry, 83,275 fer 10 feet
span. After considorablo discussion
the committee ef tho whole recommended that the Board of Works accept Mr. J. A. Calbick's tender on
the first plan (being the lowest), provided ho would agree to certain reductions in the size of timbers &c, so
ns to reduce tho cost. Council then
adjourned till Monday night.

Capt. Jno. Fonnessy, a carpenter
who came oitt from Ottawa Inst year to
work on the railway, sends the following letter to the Ottawa Free Press:

eight o'clock at night. There was no
one to tell uu anything about where we
were to step until n gentleman by the
name of Kyle came and told us to go
to either one of the two hotels of the
place. He spoke very kind to us and
told us that whon we would get to our
work on the line we would be all
right. We went to our hotels, somo

morning we went on board the cum
and were taken a distance of, t think,
sixteen miles; that was at that lime as
far as the train ran. We then unleaded our baggage and left them for the
mule train to pack them ta our respective camps er stations. We walked
ourselves. Some had to walk five
miles, and somo ten miles. We could
not get a cab for love or money; tlieir
drivers were all at the Queen
DRINKING HER HEALTH.
I got to my camp all right,/and, of
course, like evory other railroad all
had canvas tents to sleep iu. It is
not worth while building wooden
houses, as a gang of men havo only a
short time to stop at each camp. There
was a letter sent to Ottawa before this
complaining of the ill-treatment of our
party. To tell the truth T was never
treated bettor ou a railroad before.
I am an old railroad man. I havo
been foreman on more than ten or
twelve roads in iny time and I never
saw a man treat his men with moro
respect than Mr. Onderdonk. That
gentleman never spoke to me, and perhaps never might, nut I like to tell tho
truth. I am working at the carpenter's
work on trusslework and bridges, I
go to work in the morning at 7 o'clock
and go to dinner at 12, and quit work
for the day at fl. If I cannot see to
work until G I quit at dark, I am
now speaking about all here. There
are some who are too lazy to work,
and it is them who find fauft. As for
me, I find none, only after dinner, I
am hardly able to walk, (eat sp-much

a Chinaman cook hero and I toll you

I AM HO FAT.
I've got hair on me as long as a goat
with pure dent of fatness. I weighed
140-V pounds whon I left Ottawa, now
I weigh 212 pounds in my stocking
feet. We get the best of board here.
It is very hard to get provisions to tho
camps. All the provisions have to be
paeked on mules and horses over a
trail through mountain and vale, and,
after all the trouble it gives tho commissary to get them delivered to each
camp, it is done, and I wil

river of British Columbia, in tho employment of Andrew Onderdonk, contractor. As I snid before, let tlio truth
be known, Mr. Onderdonk has treated
ua well, and he had no right to do so
after tho way he was treated by some
of them who. left our city and then
tried to bring down on all of us a hard

Ottawa, Feb. 9.—In opening the
Dominion Parliament to-day tho
Govornor-Goneral in his address from

through tho United States I was rejoiced to observe many evidences of
regard for the empire of which this
country forms so large a portion. May
this friendship s» fully returned by us
be as enduring ns it is natural and advantageous to the mutual interests of

be carried on evor the main line from
Thunder Bay to within fifty miles nf

The tone of tho entire press of Ontario iB considerably iu advance of that

find an Ontario newspaper of any
grade speaking even disrespectfully of
religion, and when such a thing does
occur, you can find a score of men
within ten minutes1 walk of the office
of publication that are morally worse
than the paper. As a rule tho Ontario press is written for the best part uf
the community. Moral and religious
movements generally receive a helping
hand. Church matters get more freo
notices thau any other matters in tho
community, nnd ministers of nll kinds
are usually treated with marked respect. Lot thoso fow men who bowail

Gold Caseo, which plainly indicates net
only tho gross weight of the case, hut
also the Net weight of the gold,
Iu explanation ef the above we desire
to say that the old plan of charging for
the gross weight of the case, as if it were
all gold, worked well enough as long as
the manufacturer!* were content with the
amount of brass and steel actually required in its construction; hut when the
business was degraded into a contest as
to who should get the most base metal
into the least quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the time came when,
in the interest of dealers in American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
[dan of selling, showing the buyer exact*
y how much Gold each case contained. -
To avoid imposition, pu:. chasers of Waltham Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
boars our trade mark on both case and
movement. Gold cases are stamped "A.
W. Co. j" and guarantee certificates ao
company thein. Silver cases are stamped
"A. M. Watch Co., Waltham, Mass.,
sterling silver," and are accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed K. E, Rob-
bins, treasurer. Tlie name '-Waltham"
ib plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. Tliis caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our cases
are frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of other' makers and vice, versa,
thus affecting injuriously the performance of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by us. It is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to be a public scandal
that there is great fraud in the metal
quality of both gold and silver casos as
now generally sold. We have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold aud silver cases offered in the market are debased from 10 to 20 per cent,
from tho quality they assume to be.
This is a fraud upon the purchaser, and
accounts for tlie- low price at which such
cased watches have been sold.—American Watch Company, Waltham, Mass,

THE MINISTER'S SOU
CHAPTER XXIII.
TWO   IIK1HKSSKS.
Ronald was better pleased with
Laura's manner at this moment than
ho had ever been; he felt that sho understood and sympathized with his
desire to avoid anything liko forwardness or pretension, nnd they went to
join the others in the green-room with
less of formality and a nearer approach
to friendship between them than heretofore
The charade was a success, and in
the danco that followed Laura wtu
more than once Bennett's partner, to
the groat annoyance of Captain Badger,
who had almost extorted an invitation
For that evening. In the last turn of
a valso Laura's dress caught on a
flower-stand, and u lung rent wns apt,
parent. Ronald stooped to gather up
tho turn plaiting, and as he did so
Badger approached.
"You want pins, Misa Hardwicke;
, allow mn to otter you a pin-'oushion—
I always carry one at a hep. Where's
yours, Bennott ?"
"Mine? I havon't gut ono; I'm not
much at dances."
"You've thrown it away, I suppase.
He used to have ono, Miss Hardwicke
—a sort of needle nnd thread and pin
thing; I've seen him aew un a button
in his tent. Fair fingers made it for
him, but they aro forgotten now."
"Indeed they are not; I never fur-
got any one wiio has beon kind to ine,
or tlie reverse," said Bennett; aud,
giving Laura hia arm, lie lod her awny
to havo her dress mended.
"Were tho fingers very fair that
made the needle-booh V she asked.
"They were very useful—not as fair
as the faco of thoir owner,*' replied
Ronald, recalling pretty Ellen Smith
at Hubbleporo; and thia answer identified tho giver rf tho needlo-bouk in
Laura's mind with the sergeant's
daughter of whom Badger hnd previously spoken to her.
"And you lmvo thrown away tlie
needlo-bouk—how unkind!"
"I did not say I had, Misa Hardwicko. It is safe along with other
relics of tho campaign. I should be
very sorry to loso it."
"Oh, is it? Then yon are more constant than Captain Badger supposed,"
said Laura.
Unaware as he wns of Badger's gossip, ho thought she waa merely jesting,
and replied in the same strain,
"I am of a most constant disposition, Miss Hardwicko—some people
oven say I am obstinate, but that is
unjust."
"I dare say you enjoyed that Indian
life sometimes?" she continued, longing to ask more direct questions.
"Indeod I did. Peoplo wero wonderfully good to mo, and it wns in
many ways extren-o-y pleasant."
"And is the rjaker of tho needle-
book there stiU ?'*
- "No; I an ; lau to say ahe is at
homo. Sho bra ?pont too long a timo
in India," replied Konald, and, foolish
fellow, did not add that alio was now
the wife of a cavalry riding-master,
whose reghnont had reached England
a fow months ngo.
Laura, of course, draw her own con-
el—-r " the conversation, and
the,* vj . j bore fruit in tho Bhnpe
of an invitation to Miss Forbes to come
over aud see her new orchid iu blossom—for Miss Forbes and Laura were
great gardeners, and used io liavo frc-
queut interviews during the summer
and autumn nn that account.
Miss Forbes came, the rest of the
Broomieknowe guests having by this
time departed; and it waa whilo the
two lingered in the conservatories that
Laura repeated to her Captain Badger's
assertions and hor own convorsation
with Ronald.
'Dear, diar, how vexed my brother
will be! this is so different from what
ho thought!'' said incautious Miss
Forbes. "I never should have fancied
this of Ronald. Do you think Captain
Badg. i* was sure about it ?"
"He sait! Mr. Bemfeit had applied
for leavo to marry ibis girl, and threw
her over aftorwarcli mid he did not
Bay it as if ho wore uncurtain of it."
"He did not throw her ovor on
account uf hi'., commission, sursly ?"
"That1; what I don't know; but
Mr. Bennett himself spoke of hor the
other night as if he remembered hor
still, and said he was glad she had
come home."
"Perhaps he's engaged to her now."
"But, Miss Forbes, Captain Badger
declares that ho says he must marry
money, and is searching for an heiress," said Laura, with a slightly heightened color, but looking her companion
straight in tho face.
"Oh!" ejaculated Miss Forbes, and
paused. Was thoro anything between
him and tliis heiress? sho wondorod;
if so, hor own oyes must havo been
completely at fault. "Well," she continued, tentatively, "I should sny that
whoever ho marries will bo very happy,
lis far aa I know hiin or can judgo of
hia character; and my brother thinks
very highly of him—very highly indeed. Of course he has no position;
but thou that docs not matter," she
added, abruptly, remembering that
Laura's fathor had been a workman in
some great dye-works, and had mado
his fortune through u happy accidental
discovery.
"It doos not always matter," corrected Laura, shrewdly; "but I think
the coming htiriss will need to know
about this needle-book,''
"Oh, my dear, tho coining heiress
must not be too inquisitive There
would bo vory fow marriages if people
always expeoted to win a first love,"
answered Miss Forbes, sagely; but
Laura was too young to endorse her
opinion.
"It would not suit me to be jealous
of needle-hooks or other relics, Misa
Forbea. But here wo are gossiping
over Mr. Bennott and forgetting tho
flowers. I have such a lovely lily to
show you in this other house; come
and see it, and then wo will ge iu to
tea."
Miss Forbes went home rather
pleased than othorwiso at tho gossip
she had heard. Personally, she liked
Ronald- The charm of maimer which
in hi» mother had attracted Lady
Forbes waa repeated in him, and the
somewhat old-fashioned courtesy he
displayed toward hor pleased her taste
and her vanity. But in spito of her
liking, she could not reconcile herself
to tho idea that ho might nt somo fu-
turo timo be a suitor for Muriel's
hand. It was true that ho had never
said or done anything lo givo rise to
tho idea—anything, at least, that could
be pronounced on with certainty.
Nevertheless, Miss Forbes felt sure
that ho cherished a great liking for
her niece; nnd ono can never toll,
thought sho, how soon that curt of
liking may grow into love. Of courso
she told Sir Duncan what alio had
heard; and as- on each occasion of its
repetition the tale gained in emphasis,
a very good cnae was now made out
against Ronald. As usual, howovor,
Miss Forbes found tlmt herbruthor
took it iu an unexpected way.
"It is quite natural, Alicia. I can-
nut seo why you should talk in that
judicial faaluou bocau3o wo hear that
the lad has been in love with a pretty
girl. It would have boon odd if ho
had escaped altogether heart-whole"
"But that ho should have thrown
her over—" began Miss Forbea.
"Yes," said Sir Duncan, thoughtfully; "if that ia true, he haa behaved
badly; but I cannot believe it of him."
"But surely Captain Badger ought
to know—au ollicer in tho Banio regiment."
"Ho might know; hut whether he is
accurate- nnd whether lie says what he
moans, are dideront matters,"
"But ho can havo no motive for
speaking ill of Ronald."
"That is true and that is tlio worst
point. Still, I should not tako an assertion made by Captain Badger ait
pied da la lettre,
"No, I dare say not. He is vary
vulgar. I cannot think how Laura
Hardwicko can tolerate him as sho
does; but one can't help remembering
nn incident like tin's, im matter who. it
is that tells it."
'•Quite "true, Alicia. That's how
reputations aro ruined. One doesn't
believe what one hears, and yet one
can't forgot it," said Sir Duncan,
gravely. "Perhaps I may be able to
(hid out the truth of this story From
Ronald some of these days."
Ronald nnd Muriel mot, about this
time, more frequently than heretofore.
The former had determined to resume
hia studies with a view to passing into
the Stall* College, and qualifying for
stall' appointments. He knew that in
all probability his regiment would soon
come home; and lis foresaw tlmt, after
the oxcitoment of a campaign, garrison
duty would be intolerably dull aud unsatisfying. Moreover, if lie could get
a good appointment he would be, socially nt least, ono step nearer to Muriel. Urged by tliese motlyes, he
worked hard, and being in oou-icquonce
much at homo, had frequent opportunities uf seeing her when she came
to visit his mother and comparo notes
with her on parish matters.
Thero was great oxcitcment just
then in the Village on tho subject of
old cottagos whicli Sir Duncan hnd
decided to pull down, and replace by
moro modern buildings arranged in
flats. His rcaulvo had givou great offence to many of the cottagers, and
Muriel wns using all her influence to
allay thu storm. Tho steep-roofed,
tumble-down ono-storied cottagos
doomed to destruction were unsightly
as well an uncomfortable; but the
dwellers in them were oonvincod that
nothing cuuld bo more suitable, and
spoke with derision of sanitary improvements.
"Hoot awa' wi' yer nonsense aboot
sawnitarics!'' said a red-faced virago,
as she stood with anus a-kimbo at hor
door, whore tho long drops from the
thatch fell past her into the perennial
puddlu iu which hor feet wore finniy
planted. "Hoot awn'! thoro were five
o' ua born in ae room up tho street
yonnov, an' I hae had nine in my but-
nn'-ben, and whaur'll ye show me
atooter bairns? Tho laird can keep his
breath te cool his ain parritch, and he
can gar tho wind hlaw his ain house
tapsnltecrie, but he'll no meddle wi'
mine!"
"But tho) say there's a man, a
■awnitary inspector they ca' him,
cumin' roon' to seo a's richt," said
Mrs. M'Rorie, dopvecatingly.
"If ony inspector, whether he's a
sawnitary or no, keeks into my hooae
he'll gang oot quicker nor ho cam' in!
Presairve mo! can a body no paste up
a bit wundy wi'oot the leavo o' an inspector '( Hoot, the laird maun bo
doited an1 tho inspector daft!" aud the
spanker flung into her cottage, slamming tho door as a protest ngainst the
admission of fresh air.
After a long talk with one of the
grumblers, Muriel came to tho manse
and stayed to luncheon. Ronald, unaware of her presence, felt a quick
thrill of pleasure * ' entered tho
dining-room and saw h ,;ng there.
Sho had taken off her bou..*>i. i cloak,
and looked, without her widow b cap,
almost like tha girl of il£ day* who
lifted to call tho manse hat second
home.
"Come and give ,a casting vote,
Ronald," said sho, raising and taking
her placo at the table; "you are always ready to help mo. I havo beeu
thinking what I can do to reconcile
the people tu the new houses, and I
prepose to nsk Jamio 1'atorson to
move into ono of thom."
"It would never do," said Mrs.
Bennett. "I doubt if Jamie would
g«, as hi» houso is nut onu that must
be altered yet; and if the now flats are
te bo kept decent, he's not tho mun
to put into thom."
"Mis house must come down some
day, you see, and I think you mistake
Jamie He has made a grcnt olTort of
late, and to assume that ho would keep
a new room rcspoctablo would, I think,
help him on.1'
"I agree with you," said Ronald.
"Supposo you were to confide your difficulty to him nnd ask him to holp you,
ho would probably de it."
"But would he get over the habit of
years, nnd keep the new rooms chpan ?"
persisted Mrs. Bennett.
"1 don't know, mother; but if he
tried it would bo something, nnd if
anything, enn move him it in your influence, Mrs, Leslie."
"Ah, you think ten much of what
I can do."
"And you always underrato  your
own power." said Ronald, gently.'
