The Agricultural Meeting.
On Tnonlay ovoniug noxt a meeting of thoso on the mainland interest-
od in the approaching agricultural
exhibition is to be held in this city.
Tlm fact hns already been advertised
. in the newspapers, and the secretary
of the New Westminster organization has, wc presume, coumuiiiictited
with each settlement iu tills district
on tho subject, lt is uot iiiteiidod,
of course, to limit co operation to
thin district, but the time for co
operation was so brief that it was
considered useless to invito any persons outside this district to take part
in these jireliminury arraiigcuieiits.
Tlio Victoria meeting having beon
fixed for the 15th, it becatuo necessary, of course, 'to hold tlio meeting
ing in this city not later than tho
13th, so that persons attending it
could proceed tc Victoria on the following day. As soon as the iitinual
meeting hns been held, wo believe it
is intended to notify all persons interested in agriculture, within reach
of this oity, so that the exhibition
may bo as representative and provincial as possiblo in its character.
Onr purpose nt the present time is
to urge upon agriculturists and others the importance of attending tho
meeting ou Tuesday ovening next in
this city. At that meeting final arrangements must bo made respecting
tho courso to be pursued by maiti-
Inndcrs at the annual meeting. It
was the general opinion of thoso
present ut the preliminary meeting
held on February 20th that important changes must be made in tho
management of tho association if tho
mainland exhibition is to bo a success. At present nll the offices, with
one exception, are filled by poople
residing on Vancouver Island. It
must be obvious that, for this year
at least, tho principal officers should
be mainlandors. ' This contention is
not made in n spirit of sectionalism
or jealousy, but on purely business
grounds. If tho exhibition is to be
held on the mainland, it would bo
ridiculous to have it managed by
islanders, living at a great distance
from the sent of operations, and having very littlo knowledge of our locnl
wants and ways. When the exhibition is over, let the selection of future office-bearers ho an open question. If the exhibition of 1884 is
to bo held at Victoria, let tho chief
officers ho Victorians: if at Nanaimo, let them be residents of Nanaimo.
Now, it cannot bo expected that the
present managers, who are to a great
extent responsible for the continued
existence and prosperity of tho association, will hand over the business tn the mainland unless we can
show somo nvidenco of .our ability to
carry it on for this yoar. To do this
we should hnvo a good actual membership from the mainland, und a
respectable number of representatives
at the annua! meeting. Let the
various settlements discuss the matter thoroughly among themselves;
let the liieniliorahip be made ns largo
as possible; and let us many as can
make arraugomonts to como to this
city on Tuesday prepared to attend
tho Victoria annual meeting on the
1S inst. Complaints have been made
that tho maiiagemont ot the association has been onesided, II) is
possiblu miiinlandcrs have themselves
to blame, because they have not
troubled themselves to ask or secure
any propprtiotiato share in the management! If they neglect the opportunity now offered, they need not
look for sympathy hereafter.

Prof. E, Wollny concludes that ft
lnyoi' of farm-yard manure Bpread
upon land protects tho soil from excessive alternations of temperature, but
acts injuriously upon wet soils by
ohocking evaporation,
Mons. Leliol hns discovered a small
organism in tho urine of persons having meiiBloH, nnd peculiar to that dis-
caBo. Herr Tsolmmor had previously
found au organism which he believed
to belong not only to measles but to
scarlatina and diphtheria also,
A reliable botanical spocimen is reported to exist in Podtir, India, in the
form of a date palm whieh changes its
position morniug and'evening. Tho
tree is eleven feot in.height, and iu
tho afternoon is inclined ro near the
ground that children may pluck its
fruit from branches which in tho morning are far abovo thoir reach.
Sir 'William Thomson finds that sunlight hail about 70,000 times the intensity nf tho light of the full moon at
any placo on tho earth, and about 63,-
000 times that of candle-flame. The
latter result differs widely from that
obtained by Avago, who found the
light of the sun.to have about 15,000
times tho intensity of candle-flame.
Mons. Uncle's investigations hnve
convinced liim that changes of temperature havo little effect upon the
strength of railway tires. If accidents
to tires are moro frequent in cold woa-
ther than at other times, it is duo probably to tho increaso of rigidity and
irregularity of tho rond, which adds to
the violence of the shocks rocuived by
tlio tiros.
If the assumption that pitcher plants
cat tho insects caught by thoir leaves
is correct, there is no reason why tho
plants should not, like meat-eating
animals, experience ill effects from
over-gorging themselves; and by an
exhibition of Sarraceniaa beforo the
London Uoyal Horticultural Society,
Mr, Yeitch has shown that moderate
eating seemed to benefit them, while
injury resulted when dead insects
accumulated on the leaven.
Noticing that tho little spiders which
livo in flowers and prey upon various
insects are sometimes yellow and sometimes white, Mr. James Angus suspected that their color changes to correspond with that of the flower in
which they may be making thoir homo.
Experiment proved this to be so, white
spiders being found to turn yellow in'
two or throe days after being placed
on a sunflower. This change in color
of courso adds to tho facility
ot these creatures in concealing thorn-
selves from their intended prey.
Dr. Alex. Mayer proposes tho use
of burial cases of glass in placo of the
ordinary wooden coffins. . Such cases,
whon hermetically sealed, would effectually prevent the escapo of unwholesome gases to pollute the air of cemeteries. By replacing tho air in the
cases with an anti-putrid gas, the bodies might be indefinitely preserved
from decomposition, all the advantages of embalming being inexpensively
secured. Hermetically sealed caskets
are much moro likely to meet with
widely extended approval than are
crematory furnaces.
Mons. Valliu lias mado some experiments upon the virus of tuberculosis
to determine thu action uf various disinfectants. With the tubercular substance ho obtained, disease could be
readily produced in animals, but exposure to sulphur fumes, boiling wator
or a solution of corrosive sublimate destroyed tho power of the virus to produce such an effect. Tho result of tho
experiments prompts Mons. Valliii to
suggest that it would be a wise pro-
caution to givo prisons, barracks, hospitals and schools a yearly purifying by
sulphurous fumigation.
Tho advantage of planting trees in
the streets and open spaces of towns
hns lioon a rocont topic ot discussion
among Swiss scientists. In the opinion of Dr. Piachaud, tho trees impede
fho circulation of tho air to such an injurious extent as to moro than counterbalance any good effects thoy may
produce To this view Prof. Goret replies that trees temper tho heat and
serve as a protection from dust, while
tho evaporation from their leaves
helps to keep tho air cool and moist.
He contends also that the roots of
trees absorb much filth which would
othorwiso render the subsoil of nt roots
dangerous brooding-places of disease,
The Desert of Sahara, according to
an address by Prof. Guido Corn to the
Italian Geographical Socioty, has a
total area of 3,7000,000 square miles,
not moro than ono fifth of which is
covered by sand. The mean elevation
of tho desert is from 1,300 to 1,650
foet abovo soa-levol, but its mountain
chains attain a height of from 0,660 to
8,200 feot. In some parts rains oceur
only once in somo twonty years, whilo
iu others thore is a regular rainy season. Whilo tho tomporaturo rises to
122 degrees, it sometimes falls below
20 degrees, and snow and ico eover the
highest mountain summits during several months of the yenr The animals
and plants aro of much interest and
importance Tho human population

Wednesday Horning, March T, 1883.
According to the financial statement, published over the signature
of the provincial auditor, the balance
of liabilities over available assets on
January 31st was $76,646.79. The
Standard denies the correctness of
the auditor's statement, and claims
that when the late Government resigned office there was a surplus in
the treasury. It will be for tbe
House to determine where lies the
truth, but at present we certainly
prefer to accept the statement of the
auditor.
Quite a lively business has been
done for some time in Ontario in
constructing ready-made houses for
shipment to Manitoba. Commenting upon this fact the Seattle Poet
says: "We look for a most thriving
industry of this character on the
Pacific slopo at an early day. The
abundance of lumber on the lower
Columbia river, on Puget Sound and
Burrard Inlet, and the establishment ot great wood-working industries, will, on completion of the
transcontinental roads and the
cheapening of transportation, be the
means of building up an immense
traffic in ready-made houses for the
treeless region between the Cascades
and Kooky Mountains. It will be
cheaper, of course to ship only such
material as may be necessary, and it
can be done with a houso as well as
with a sewing machine or passenger
coach. It will not be surprising to
witness the inauguration of this
traffic ere the close of 1883."
British Columbia.
Enquiries about the climate and
resources of British Columbia are
continually coming from Eastern
Canada, Manitoba, the United States,
and Great Britain. In many cases
correspondents state that there are
large numbers of people in their
several localities who are desirous of
coming to this country, if they could
bo satisfied with respect to its ad*
vantages. At the risk of wearying
our provincial readers with matters
with which they nre already familiar, wo propose to state briefly a
few facta for the information of intending immigrants. The climate
of British Columbia is undoubtedly
the finest that can be found anywhere in British North America.
This province, however, has a large
area (nearly three times the size of
Great Britain and Ireland), and ita
climate varies according to the elevation and distance from the coast
Along the coast and throughout a
great part of the interior ths thermometer rarely ever reaches zero,
and the greatest summer heat is about
75 to 90 deg. We have no blizzards
anywhere in the country, and no
sudden changes from heat to cold.
Storms of any kind are very rare,
except on Vancouver Island, and
then they are nothing compared
with those experienced on the other
side of the continent. In the vicinity of this city the coldest days of
winter are about 8 or 10 above zero,
but sueh a low temperature does not
usually occur more than a few days
in the year. Some parts of the country ara subject to extensive rainfalls;
others, iu the interior, are moro than
usually dry. Tho quantity of rain
on the coast is from 45 to 75 inches,
and from 10 to 20 inches in the interior. As an illustration of the
character of the climate with reference to out-door labor, we are informed by one of the railway contractors that his entire force last
season, working outside, averaged
23} days per month, per man, for a
consecutive period of 6 months.
Every person from tbe East who
visits .thia province iB surprised ar»l
delighted at our climate. Our resources are very great and varied.
Much of the country is mountainous,
but there are thousands of aores of arable land, and most ot it is exceedingly fertile. Hon. J. W. Trutch, Dominion Government Agent, has estimated the quantity of fertile land west
of the Eocky Mountains at 140,000,-
000 aores. It ia at least certain that
there Is plenty good land for all who
wish it The productiveness of our
good lauds is wonderful, and high
prices are realized for all farm and
dairy produce.  Any person who en
gages intelligently in farming or
stock raising in this country should
realize a competency in a few years.
Every intending settler may preempt 160 acres of land, for which lie
pays the Govornment $1 per aero in
four annual instalments. In addition
to our agricultural interests, we hnve
au exhaustless supply of as fine timber as can be found in tho world.
There are a large number of mills
engaged in manufacturing lumber
and spam for export and local demand, and the industry is capable of
indefinite expansion, The annual
lumber production now amounts to
nearly 30,000,000 feet. Our coal
fields are vast and rioh. The Nanaimo coal area is nearly 100 square
miles, and that of Comox about 300.
Large quantities of coal are exported
to San Francisco and elsewhere. Our
fisheries are also vast in extent, and
continually increasing. In 1882 the
value of fish packed and cured in
this province was $1,842,675. The
capital employed is $631,670, and
there' .are over 5,000 men engaged
during fishing season. Mining is, of
course,, very largely carried on, for
everybody has heard of the mines of
British Columbia. Our gold fields
are very extensive, covering an area
estimated at about 100,000 square
miles. There are also rich silver,
copper,, lead, and iron mines scattered throughout tho country. The annual yield of gold in. Cariboo is now
upwards of $1,000,000. Vast regions
of this country have never been explored, and it will doubtless bo found
that some of the richest mines have
not yet been discovered. In this
country thero is a steady and pressing demand for labor. Thore is
scarcely a single industry whose
operations ara not hampered because
of the scarcity of labor. The farms,
tho m'lls, the fisheries, the logging
camps, the pnblio works, the railways—all demand more holp than
the present population can supply
Wages are higher, we believe, than iu
any other part of the continent. For
common laborers the railway contractors are offering from $2.50 to
$3 a day, and for skilled mechanics
from $3.50 to $5 per day. Wages
in other branches of industry,are
about equally high. Tho logging
camps, whioh employ large numbers
of men throughout tho year, pay
from $60 to $75 per month, and
board. Farm laborers get from $30
to $40 per month, and common mill
hands about $60 per month, and
found. Board, for day laborers, is
from $4 to $6 per week. It will be
seen from these figures how great are
the profits of labor in this province.
The towns and settlements are fairly
well supplied with free publio
schools, churches, and other institutions usually found in civilized countries. The general laws and municipal regulations are somewhat similar to those of Eastern Canada, and
lifo and property ara as safe as anywhere on the continent. We have
the climate and the natural resources
to make a nation, and what wo most
need is population. Since the commencement of railway construction
all branches of industry have been
forced into unusual activity, and
now is the time for immigrants to
come. No person willing to work
need be without employment at good
wages in British Columbia

tho main deck which forms a saloon.
Two of the starboard boats wero carried away and a strong iron rail on tho

Retired. — The ■ Canadian Pacific
Navigation Oo. haying finally token
over tho property and effects of tho
Pioneer Lino and Hudson Bay Co.'s
local steamers, Capt. Lewis has resolved to withdraw from active life, and
pass the remainder of his days in retirement. Capt. Lewis has been about
35 years in tho employ of the H. B.
Co.'s service, and was,an exceedingly
faithful and officiant officer. He was
always obliging, nnd-was very popular
with the peoplo of this city. The Columbian hopes lie may have many
years yot left in which to enjoy the
fruits of his long and faithful service.
Is it True?—A telegram bearing
date the 23rd mat. aud forwarded to
the Pacific Coast from Washington
states 'that Consul Conard, at Leith,
Scotland, iu an official communication
to the Stato Department, says: "Canners of salmon on tho Pacific Coast
have errod in not exercising sufficient
cars in the selection of sound fish, and
in canning them in proper condition.
The result has been that many thousands of. cases ef salmon, mostly from
Frasor River, which wero sold to arrive
at 24 to 25 shillings at Liverpool, with
a guaranteo of quality, wero rejected
on arrival, and subsequently resold at
21 to 22 shillings por case. Packers
do not seem to rocognizo tho fact that
canned goods must bo of irreproachable quality, and any that are not so,
tend to depreciate these goods in this
country, and ruin tho sale of suoh
articles."

onco to give bruin a warm reception,
but to their surprise thoy found it
wasn't a bear at alf^but a largo seal,
diving down nnd coming up under the
dog, biting him in a savage maimer.
The two men at once opened fire on
tho soal, which quickly disappeared
down stream. Tho dog swam ashore,

The river bolow Hopo is still jammed,
but must soon givo way.
Tho announcement of Messrs, McGirr & Davis of their intention to dispose of their stock at tho "Palace Hotel," March 14, and leave Yale for
Port Moody lias caused their many
friends hero to regrot that Yale is
about to witness tho departure of gentlemen who hnvo boen. identified with
tho interests of the place and mado
themselves agreoable generally.
The Government Agent at Lytton,
Mr. Hussoy, getting wind of wrong
doing against the law of the land by
selling liquor without a license, as
soon as it was convenient to get Squire
Murray, of Spence's Bridge (tho practice requiring two magistrates), to arrive and act with Squire Hants/, had
ono John Hayron and two Chinamen
arrested, The case was tried on the
24th ult., and resulted in the conviction of thu prisoners. Sentences:
John Hayron and Ah You fined $100
and costs, or 3 months in prison at
hard labor. The othor Chinaman, who
appears to bo Railway book-keeper,
got off with a fino of $50 and costs
which ho paid; the light penalty in
this caso was in consequence of his not
making ^business of thu violation of
the jjetw-' of tho land. It is to bo hoped
tK#;feBspjj will have the,desired result.
A fow weeks sijTcV we announced
that deaths wero numerous among
tho Chinese employed' along the Railway Hue; ono gang of 28 below Emory
having in a few weeks lost 0, and now
we are credibly informed 4 inoru have
died somewhat suddenly. Hero in
Yalo at tho temporary hospital opened
nt Sam Sing's house nro a number sick.
Sunday) wiio died, Wednesday two
died, and others aro very low. Upon
inquiry wo are told, the dead and dying nll belonged to tho Railway Company. No medical attendance is furnished, nor apparently much intorost
felt in the unfortunate creatures. We
understand Mr. Onderdonk doclines
interfering, while the Leo Chuck Company that brought the Chinameii from
their native land refuses, through their
agent, Loo Soon, who is running the
Chinese store at Emory, to become responsible for doctors' bills or medicine. The illness is reported to be
"berrio-bcrrio," or swelling of the
foot, legs and eyes, getting into tho
body, aud in a few hours tlio victims
dio in great suffering. Surely some
action should bo taken by the Local, if
not the Dominion Govornment, it not
for the sake of tho unfortuunto China-
men themselves, for tho protection of
tho whito population. We believe the
bottor class of Chinese in Yale feel
anxious thnt something would bo done,
but do not consider it just to fasten
upon themselves oxponsos that either
tho Railway Syndicate or tho Lee
Chuck Company should assume.
PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
FIRST SESSION OF THE FOURTH PARLIAMENT.
Nearly tho whole day was taken up
with matters of vory littlo importance,
nnd a brief' discussion of two or threo
bills.
WEDNESDAY.
In reply to questions by members
tho Government stated: That only one
bill had bopn prepared by tho late
Government at the time of thoir resignation; and that 150 tons of cement
wore destroyed when tho storehouse
wns burned, ond it was not insured.
The bill to remove disqualification
of Justices of the Peace was pnsaed.
Tho Homestead Amendment Aot
was disoussed. Tlio bill wns supported
by Hon, Mr, Drake, Hon. Mr. Robson, Hon. Mr, Smitho, and Messrs.
Pooley, Wilson. Duck, Helgesen, and
T. Davio, It was opposed by Messrs.
Beaven aud Armstrong, and several of
Its supporters wore in favor of having
it considerably amended.
Tho Creditor*-' Relief Act was also
discussed, and approved by nil members except Mr, Beaven.
A vory long and interesting discussion took placo on tho Chinese question. Evory member oi tho Houso
who took part in tho dobato expressed
a wish to seo Chinon immigration restricted, and most of tho speakers woro
of opinion that tho question could not
be satisfactorily settled except by tho
Introduction of whito labor. Mr.
Dunsmuir stated that ho was tlm largest employer of Chinoso labor on tho
floor of the Houso. He had about 400
Chinamen in his employ, but ho would
discharge every ono of thoiii to-morrow
if he could get white men to take thoir
places. Hon. Mr. Robson said that to
some extent tlio country wna ■depend*
ing upon Chinoso labor, and the evil
could only bo abated by inducing wliite
immigration. He said it was the intention of the Government to inaugurate a thorough immigration scheme,
Several of the speakers criticised tho
lato Government for not dealing with
tho Chinese question and the question
of immigration, and Mr. Beaven defended tho defunct Govornment. Ho
said the grievanco had been frequently brought to tho attention of the Ot'
tawa Government, and ho doubted the
reverse statement attributed to Sir
John Macdonald.
On motion of Mr, Orr, a bill to incorporate tho New Westminstor Southern Railway Co. waB read a first time.
Hon. Mr. Robson moved that a
select committeo consisting of Messrs.
Orr, Armstrong, Duck, Dingwall and
T. Davie be appointed for the purpose
of enquiring into tho claim of tho
honorable Amor DeCosmos for compensation for services ue agont for
British' Columbia at Ottawa and London, with power to call for persons
and papers, and report to this house.
In support of the resolution Mr. Rob-,
son said that, so far as the Government could find, no special agreement
had boen made with Mr. DeCosmos.
Ho had already received $4,485 as expenses nnd ho (Mr. Robson) was under the impression that tho House had
passed thoso sums last session believ-
ing them to bo a full settlement. It
was singular that nothing had beon
said about this salary since 1880, and
that nothing had been done by the
Into Govornment towards a settlement.
Tho present Govornment had .no intention to repudiate the claim, but
they wanted to understand it nnd be
in a position to do justice both to Mr.
DeCosmos and tha country, Mr,
Beavon said ho had no, objection to
the resolution, but ho thguglit it was a
very extraordinary projttsal to come
from a member of thtwKovernmont.
Motion agreed to. «
Mr. Pooley moved Itho License
Amendment Bill, leaving tho granting
of liquor licenses to magistrates of the
locality only where licomo was asked.
He'referred to" instances where magistrates had gone into adjoining districts
and succeeded in issuing licenses where
they were not wanted. Tho bill was
discussed at considerable length, and
supportod by all the members of the
Government and it. was finally lost tin
a vote of 11 to 12.

Foster's Attack on Parnell.
New , York, Feb. ?6. ■— Tribune's
London:,Forstor's destructive attack
upon Parnell and tho land league has
put everything-else in tho shade. "Ever
sinco James Carey's testimony incriminating the land league tho public has
looked to Parnell to refute tho growing suspicion that tho Irish leaders had
complicity in tho crime. He was appealed to and challenged repeatedly
from both Bides of the house, but he
sat a whole week silent. Forster on
Tuesday so'ht liim word that ho intended to accusovhim. Tho house was
thronged. Forster spoko with au energy and directness that carried everything before him. When ho sat down
the whole house turned to famell,
who still refused'to rise. It is fho first
timo in history that a member of tho
British parliament ever declined'such
a challenge. A meeting of tho Irish
party was held immediately after this,
and it was resolved that Parnell must
apeak. ..'After 24 hours of reflection
Parnell'decided to leave Forster unanswered. Speaking last night ho excused himself on the ground that Mr.
Forster had no right to publish a question and make suoh charges, as Par-
nell, though perhaps personally disliking the outrages knew from the bo
ginning uf his own leadership and authority'that tho land league both depended on the prevalence of crime and
of violence. To havo denounced them
'or money would ham-ruined him,
with a vast majority of'his followers,
who have either committed or approved of the outrages. To denounce thein
now would have tho same effect ns having to elect between tho English public and Bhe Irish public. Parnell choso
tho latter. Tho result is a total
breakup of any positive public alliance between .the Parnellitcs and
English radicals. There is not ono
English journal, not oven tho Daily
News, tho Pall Mall Gazette nor tho
Echo, to lift up its voico in Parnoll's
defence. All ovor England and Scotland ono indignant burst condemns
tho leader who deliberately refuses to
disown such outrages, or avow- that
not any possiblo connection exists between the murderers' secret society
and tho land league. McCarthy's vain
efforts to cover his leader's retreat
took tho form of a harangue, crowded
with bitter personalities and measured
insults to Forster. McCarthys responsibility for tho land league organ,
tho United Ireland, being oatablished,
it would seem goes to bring out also
tho Daily News responsibility for Mcr
Carthy, who continues his connection
with that journal as a writer of editorials.
The damage by flood to Pittsburg
and vicinity is estimated at $100,090,
and an equal amount up Monongahola
Valley.

Caution.
We beg to call the attention of tho
trade and tlio public to the ■well-known
quality and elegance of finish of our
Gold Cases, guaranteed by us to be of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Gold, as may be
stamped, and also to our mode of selling
tho samo, charging only for the Actual
Weight of tho gold used, and not for
tho base metal comprised in imrings, koy
pipes, filling of erown, etc. To illustrate
which n tag accompanies each ono of our
Gold Cases, whicli plainly indicates not
only tho gross weight of tho caso, but
also the Net weight of the gold.
In explanation of the above we desire
to say that tlie old plan of charging for
the gross weight of tlio case, as if it wero
all gold, worked well enough as long as
the manufacturers were content with the
amount of brass and steel actually required in its construction; but when tho
business was degraded into a contest as
to who should get the most baso metal
into the least quantity of gold and cnll it
a Gold case, then tho time came when,
iu . tho Interest of dealers In American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
{linn of selling, showing tho buyer exact-
y how much GOLD each cose contained.
To avoid imposition, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
bears our trade mark on both cose and
movement. Gold ensos are stamped "A.
W. Co.;"and guarantee certificates ao
compnny them. Silver cases aro stamped
"A. M. Watoh Co., Waltham, Mass.,
sterling silver," and are accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed R. E. Bobbins, treasurer. Tho name "Waltham"
iB plainly engraved upon all movements,
Irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered necessary by reason of tho foci: 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, whicli is intended to cover
only our complete watches -wholly mado
by us. It is necessary also, because It is
bo notorious as to be a public scandal
that thero is great fraud in the metal
quality of bot'i gold and silver cases as
now generally sold. We havo demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold and silver casos offered hi the market aro debased from 10 to 30 per cent,
from tho qunlity thoy assumo to he.
This is a fraud upon tho purchasor, and
accounts for tho low price at which such
casod watches havo been sold.—Amkiu-

Ho found "tho shoemaker a miserable figuro, unkempt and dirty,
crouching on his bench, while the un-
swcpt room and empty grato, bolow
which yoatci'day's ashes still lay, show-
od that there had been no great at-
tompt at breakfast thnfc morning. A
hunch of stale, broad lay broken on n
plato, aud beside it stooil a jug of not
very clean water.
"Well, Jamie, I've come up to sit a
bit with you," began Ronald; but
Jamie lifted a. lowering face and bade
him begone.
"I'm no for ony mair advico*—I dinna nood it, and naebody's to come pry-

for't. There's been a woroaii horo tho

lievo you're going to begin now. It
won't bo hospitable if you do."
"That's true. Weel, yo can sit doon,
but dinna ludo ower lang.   I like to bo
my lano whiles.'
' "Have you hnd breakfast yet?"
',Breakfast! No," replied Jamio,
with u shudder. "I'll gang oot ina
wh.ilie and got some nt tho Rob Roy-"
He said it defiantly, and Ronald
mado no reply, for the Rob Roy was
the worst public-house in Tillybodle.
"Mrs. Leslio was here yesterday,'
said he,
" 1" Jamie's answer was an oath:
and Ronald, observing him, felt that
thero wns a hold upon him still;
"I shouldn't won dor if sho were to
como back to soo you."
"I'll bo oot—I'm' awa' to tho Rob
Roy. Whaur's my coat ?" said Jamie,
getting up and looking round.
"You'll not," said Ronnld, firmly,
laying a hnnd on his arm—"you'll not
be such a coward."
The old man turned upon him fiercely, but Ronald went on in the samo
firm, quiet tons:
"You've fought a bravo fight for
years, and you'll not run away now
aud loso tlio respect of your V"1
friends, You'll stay at home and see
Mrs. Leslio if sho coincc.*'
"Man, I canna!"
"Thon you'll griovo her, and she
has troubles enough of lior own to
boar. She said the other day that tho
chooriost sight in tlio village was your
nice room."
"Did she?" said Jamio, looking
round uneasily.
"Sho did, and you shojia have seen
how pleased she lookod."
"She'll no bo pleased tho neist time
sho comes. I'm just feared to face her,
and I'm awfu1 drouthy."
"Como homo with mo and got some
breakfast."
"That I'll no dp," replied Jamie,
decisively. Ho would uot go to the
manso if ho could help it, for he and
Mr. Bennett had had "words" moro
than once. The minister thought to
do his duty by admonishing him, but
Jamio resented ficrcoly any such interference.
"Then let me fotch you some tea,
I'll do it, if you'll give me your word
to wait for mo," said Ronald.
"Weel, I'll bido, gin you'ro no lung,"
returned tho old man, and ho resumed
his former sent.
"Mako me some strong tea as quick
as you can, Nancy," snid Ronald, hurrying in to tho manse and explaining
his errand; and while tho tea was making, ho wrote and dispatched tho following note:
"Dear Mns. Lkhlik,—Jamie ia gruff
and sorry, and afraid of seeing you.
I'm taking hiin ton. Could you come
down in half an hour, whon I hnvo
loft? I wish liis room could ho brightened a little. I'll get it done, if ho
will go out this afternoon. Could you
Bend lain somo soda-water? I am a
littlo afraid of tho Rob Roy bye-aud-
by. Yours sincerely,
"Ronald Bennhtt,''
Ho thon took tho hot ten to tho
shoemaker, and having seen him drink
a few mouthfuls, wont away somewhat
hastily, promising to look iu again
Inter.
Muriel thought over his noto, and in
a short time had started for tho village,
with n bunch of flowers in hor dress,
and carrying a amall bnskot, in which
many good things went to the Bick.
Softly opening Jamie's door, sho stopped lightly in, and, laying down hor
basket, went up to him, whero ho snt
with his back to tho door, and touchod
him on tho shoulder.
"How aro you, Jamio ? I camo down
to soo if I could do anything for you,"
Baid she, gently,
Jamie half turned his hend toward
hor, but without looking up.
"Botter gang yor ways—gang yer
wayH hamo, and fash yorsol' nae mair
aboot au auld fule liko me."
"Do you think that is tho way I
treat my friends tho moment they're
in trouble ? I hopo to pay yon many
a visit, and seo you as comfortable ns
over, for yoars to como. Things will
look botter to-morrow, Jamio."
"Ay, maybo they wull; but they'ro
unco black the day."
"Well you must just win through
till to-morrow comes, Jamio; it is
what I havo had to do mysolf,': snid
Muriel, with a catch in her voice.
"But I'm forgetting; X brought something that I thought you might like,"
sho continued; and going to tho table
behind him, sho mado hor preparations
deftly and quickly.
First ahe spread a small white napkin, and laid on it a bottlo of soda-
water and a lemon. Next sho squeezed
another into a tumblor that sho had
brought, and drawing a second bottle
of Sida-water, sho carried tho foaming
drink to tho old man.
"Try it Jamio; I think you will liko
it," she said.
With a glance of wonder ho took the
tumbler and drained it, and looking
up at last in hor faco, ejaculated,
"That's grand!. And wlm wad lino
thocht of your bringin' it to me! What j
is't?" I
"Just soda-water and lemon—that's
all. Now, Jamio, I can't stay, for I
havo things to seo to at home; but I
shall come back to-morrow, and I trust
to you to lot mo find that you havo
'win' through.' Ono swallow doesn't
make a summer, and one slip doesn't
make a failure; read 'Tho Northern
Oobler,' nud try again," said Muriel,
holding out her hand.
Tho shoemaker took it almost reverently, and snid, in a softened voico,
"I'll no promise, but I'll try."
"Thank you heartily. And now
good-bye till to-morrow," answered
she, nnd went nwny, after laying on
tho napkin the bunch of sweet-smelling pinks that sho had worn,
As tho door closed upon hor, Jamio
sat on for a whilo, lacking courngo lo
bogiu tlio inevitable "redding up;" but
at last ho rose, stretched himsolf, and
turning round, his eye lighted upon
the table by the door. He crossed the
room, and stood a moment looking at
tho dainty array; sho had loft oven tho
silver pocket-knife with which sho cut
tho lemon. Then ho took up tho flowers and examined thom, his faco working tho whilo.
"I mind tho vera same ilooors in my
mithors bit garden, Wlmt-was't she
toll't mo to say ?—'Be merciful to mo
a ainnpr*—to mo a siniior,' " repeated
tho old man, whilo tho slow tears gathered in his eyes, and fell at last upon
tho lliiwors. "GroetinM" muttered ho;
"wool, weol! I'm liko a bairn tho day;
n'things's strange and byordinar. I
haona thocht o1 yon words this twenty
year;" and ho sighed, and began to
busy himsolf slowly and clumsily about
tho house.
But a fow minutes had elapsed before Ronald returned; ho had seon
Muriol go along tho street on her
homeward way, nnd was anxious to
know how sho had farod.
"Did ye moot her? she's jist now
awa."
"No," replied Ronnld.
"See you!" exclaimed Jamie, pointing to the table. "Sho mixed a drink
for me heraol', and when sho gaed awa'
I fatid those—ay, and thao bit fiooers.
My mithor aye tell't ino nboot the
angels; I mind o't weel, though I
didna hod hor muckle nt tho time.
Yon's nno o' them; she'd gio ye her
bonuie hand to help yo oot u the vora
miro o' hell."
"She would, God bless her!" said
Ronald, revorently, and Jamie's
brusque nod showed that he echoed
the prayer,
"Come out with mo, Jamie," said
Ronald; "the day's fresh, and you'll
be all the better for a tui..; como as
far as the Vail with me."
"Ou, t maun bo seoin to the hoose
aud a mouthfu' o' donuor,"
"I'll help you with both when wo
como back—come awny," said Ronald,
taking him by the arm and putting
his cap into his his hand,
"Ye aye lino yer way; I dinna ken
what's wrang wi' me," said Jamie,
shaking his head, but he allowed himself to be lod away; and as the cool air
blew upon his hot brow, and Ronald's
talk broke in upon his depression, he
straightened himself, and began to feci
as if tho choerior morrow wero not so
very far off,
During his nbsenco Nancy, with
good Mrs. M'Rorio's ready help, had
accomplished wonders in tho way of
cleaning and tidying tho neglected
room; and when ho returned, Ronald
accompanying him to tho door, ho
found everything put straight—the
bed mndo, a fire burning clearly, tho
bread and cheese set out, and oven
somo rashers of bacon laid ready in
tho frying-pan.
"Mair angels' wark, oh! Puir
things! they've had a sair timo o't wi1
me, said Jamie, with n returning
twinkle iu his eyes ns ho surveyed the
room.
"I think I'll loavo you to their company to-day, but I'll soe you to-morrow; nnd, by-tho-by, here's 'Oliver
Twist,' that you wanted to read," said
Ronald, Inying it on the tnblo.
"Ay, that's weol thocht o'; I'll bo
nano tho waur o' that," snid Jamio,
who knew, m Ronald did, that tho
tomptation of yesterday would nt-uome
hour or other return in full force.
To his honor be it said, he noither
thou nor on any subsequent occasion
yielded to it, but was wont to observe
thnt he hnd learned "a wheen things"
nt the time nf his last downfall that ho
hnd novor known before—a remark
which puzzled all who heard it with
the exceptiou Ronnld, nud perhaps old
Nancy.
The same consciousness of something
amiss which kept the former from returning to Inverallan, prevented Muriel from visiting the manso for a day
or two nfter the incidents just narrated; but it chanced thnt sho and
Ronald met nt Inst in tho village street,
and began, of courso, to spoak of tho
shoemaker.
"You hnve saved him, Mrs, Leslie,"
said Ronald.
"With your help," roturnod she.
"You have us much influence ovor him
us I have."
"Do you think ao ? Shall I tell you
what ho said of you V asked Ronald,
and in brief words repeated Jamie's
remarks about the angels,
Tho ready tears rose to Muriel's
oyos, "Poor old Jnmiel Oh, 1 do
hopo he may koop straight now .''she
said, earnostly,
"I think ho will; and ho will owo
his new lifo to you, You arc doing a
noble work. Will you lot mo say for
onco how I rovorenco you for it ?" re-
pliod Ronnld, in n low voico.
Muriel lookod up into his grave,
kind face, and hor heart smoto hor.
Surely sho hnd dono him injustice, or
thore must bo somo mistake. It was
impossiblo thnt ho could have lied, and
especially—whispered an inward voice
—especially to hor.
1 wish 1 deserved your faith in mo,
Ronald. 1 know, you Bee, where I
am weakest, nnd that there is nothing
for you to reverence But at tho
snmo timo, it makes ono very happy
when one's friends believe in one," sho
answered, with that tender smile in
hor eyes of which Hardwicko had once
snid that it mndo him think somehow
of n summer moonlight—a remark that
hnd filled bis mnttor-of-fnot sister with
profound astonishment; but, then, sho
had never known tho lovo that makes
the dullest naturo nt times almost
poetical.
