Climatic Inequalities.
In tho eastern i>rovh,oes unci, in
fiiot, throughout a Inrgo put tion ol
thin continent, the pant month of
January hns been clmrnctsrized by
iutotise cold Aiul midden ohniigfts.
Tin; cold dips have boon unusually
severe, snow storms Imve swept over
large areas of the country, and both
thevmomoter nnd bnromctin- hnve
been subject to great and sudden
fluctuations. In the province of
Ontario, whero sanitary mutters have
lately received very great, attention,
the health bulletin for the week end
ing January 20th shows it marked
increase in the number of casos of
disease reported. Tho sanitary authorities attribute this increase to
the rapid changes and tlio severity
of the cold. There is little doubt
but the climate of eastern Canada
has changed Considerably within tl;
past 20 years, and changed for the
worse. Of lato years many residents
of the older provinces have become
so discouraged iu consequence of the
sudden changes and vigorous character of the climate that they have
emigrated to other places, where
these disadvantages wore loss prominent. Wo believe no one who is
competent ta judge wilt deny that
British Columbia has the most equal
and salubrious chmate to be found
anywhere iu British Nortii America.
Our northern latitudes are cold
enough, bub anywhere within three
hundred miles of the boundary,
of the Pacific Ocean, the climate is
never intensely cold. Nor do we
experience the oppressive summer
heat which produces so much sick
ncss, and destroys so much vital
energy, in the East. Our climate is
also celebrated for its freedom from
sudden change. Our seasons are
regular, und although in some parts
the periods of rain are long and
monotonous, most people come to
prefer even rain to the intense frost
which thoso in tlio East must endure. This country is likewise noted
for tho absence of storms. There
are places wliere storms are frequent
and sometimes heavy, but these are
the exceptions. Iu the vicinity of
this city storms are almost unknown,
and thunder and lightning are phenomena wliich have come to be
greatly appreciated on -account of
thoir rare occurrence. Within tho
last two years we havo experienced
only ono thunder storm, and the
storm of wind whicli Wiggins sent
us last Sunday and Monday was one
of the heaviest that has been folt at
this city foi* yeurs. It is no wonder
the people of Manitoba and the
North-west begin to look with longing eyes to this country. There
they have cold winters (sometimes
as cold «s 60 deg. below zero) hot
su'mmets, and fearful hurricanes.
Here nono of theso things aro known.
When this country becomes better
understood, and when the new
avenues of access to it now under
construction have been opened up, we
expect thousands of people who arc
now millbringfrmii climatic rigors in
the East to Hock tor shelter and contentment to this tlie fairest province
in the Canadian confederacy,
Skattle-Wkstminmtkk Route. - -Kq-
pairs on the Evangel havo finally beeu
completed, and that trim little steamship will now enter upon her career of
usefulness between Seattle and New
Westminstor. The repairs to thu
Evangel have bum thorough and the
changes in hor appearance so'radical
that she will hardly bo ricognized aa
the ernft whose career heretofore has
beon so noted on account of its conspicuous failures. Hor boiler is'new
and her machinery has been thoroughly
overhauled. A now cont of whito
paint, with blue and cream-colored
trimmings, gives her linos a most
gracoful appearance. For tlie present
sho will mako one trip a weak between
Seattle and New Westminster.—Victoria Post,

Scientific JjHteccIInnj).
It is repoi'ted that in parts of Switzerland there had been 200 rainy days
last year up te the end of November,
with only 50;days nf sunshine.
Mr. 0. If. Steam has adapted small
incandescent electric lamps to the illumination of objects under the micro,
scope, and hns exhibited the brilliant
results to the British Royal Microscopical Society.
Dr. Thomas Tiujlor finds it quite
possible that flies may convey the germs
of infectious or contagious diseases
from place to placo. Whether diseases
are really ever so distributed is a ques-
tioiwif great importance.
One of the glaciers mentioned in tho
"Himalayan■JouriiAls" of Dr. Joseph
Hooker has a vortical height of 14,000
foot. Its sourco is tho groat Kinchin-
jtinga mountain, whoso summit reaches
an altitude of 28,000 foot abovo the
sea.
A duo with horns seven inches long,
which gavo it tho appoarance of tho
male animal, was recently killed near
Aix-Iii-Chapello. Horned docs aro
rare, although some of the old ones
are known to have small rudiments of.
Horns.
A spot which appeared iu tho sun's
southern hemisphere on April 13th of
lust your was measured by Rev. F.
Howlett and found to have a superficial area of not less thnn 2,050,000,-
000 square miles. Even this was surpassed by ono seon iii November,
whioh a correspondent of the London
Echo reported ns extending ovor a
space of 2,356,840,000 square miles.
The loss of human life caused by
snakes in India is alarming, 19,000
persons having perished from snakebites in 1880 and 18,010 in 1881. Rewards for tho killing of venomous reptiles hnvo beon offered, but this measure hns beeu found to give iiisuflieiwnt
protection, nnd the adoption throughout India of nn organized system for
tho extermination of all dangerous
kinds of snakes is urged.
At tho recent congress of German
surgeons, Dr. Neuber commended the
antiseptic virtue of peat or black earth,
which is put into loose gauze bags and
tied over wounds by moans of gauzo
bandages. As used in Kiel, this dress*
ing is seldom changed or net at all.
In Dr, Noubor'a opinion tho turf absorbs all secretions rapidly, and by its
porosity favors their evaporation, while
healing takes place as undor a scab.
From observations of tho planet
Jupiter from September, 1870, to De-
comber, 1881, HorrKortazzi has con*
eluded that the great red spot must bo
either of a liquid or a solid nature.
In tho formor caso it may bo considered as a large lako iu an ocean of other
liquid. If it is a solid body it must bo
a floating mass on the surface of an
ocean, as it is only on this hypothesis
that we can account for the changes in
its position which aro observed.
The removal of the electric lamps
which light tho foreign settlement at
Shanghai has beeu ordered by the
Chinese Governor of the district, who
says he has heard of the terrible accidents which havo boon caused by electricity, and he cannot allow his people
to be exposed to the frightful risk of
having hundreds of thousands of houses destroyed, millions of persons killed,
or tlio walls of the city blown down,
by any irregularity in tho working of
tho electric uiachinos!
The discovery of a so-called lignifled
snako in Biazil caused a sensation
among scientific men a fow months
ago. The specimen was found between
the bark and wood of a treo, and if it
was ever a snake the animal structure
had beon entirely replaced by a woody
growth. Dr. Gray, to whom the find
has lately been shown, thinks it more
probable that it was produced by tho
filling up with A woody growth of the
reptilian shape of somo wood-eating
insect's track. Or it may bo an aerial
root which was growing under the
bark.
It was at one time believed, according to Dr. Keller, that tho opening of
tho Suoz Canal would be followed by
a rapid aud oxtousive interchange of
fish between the Mediterranean and
tho Red Seas, but such has not been
the case. Some of tho smaller Mediterranean fish havo boen found in the
Red Sea, and for somo unknown reason the tide of migration appeals to
tako that direction in preference to
tho othor. The pearl oystor is said td
be now moving toward tho Mediterranean, with very slow progress but in
considerable numbers.
Iu Germany, tho increasing consumption of rice has led Prof. Voit, as
well as Dr. Konig, to investigate the
quo-it ion of the relative nutritive valuo
of this article and other kinds of food
—especially potatoes. Tne conclusion
reached is that rico is a vory ellicient
food, whilo potatoes largely consumed
fail to satisfactorily nourish the body,
malting the muscles weak and the
blood watery. Dr. Kiiuig estimates
that, when equal quantities of the two
articles aro considered, rice has four
times tho value of potatoes in really
nutritive properties. A further advantage of rico is that its quality is always tho samo, whilo great variation
in potatoes is caused by tho state of
tho weathor during their growth.

How to do It.
In Saturday's issue, we  referred
briefly to tho question of emigration
and pointed out tlio gross blunder-
m which luul characterized the con-
duet of the late provincial Government with  regard   to  this and the
Chinese   question.    We  mentioned
that Mr. Onderdonk had  made an
ofl'cr or $75,000 to assist in bringing
1,000 workmen to this country, and
8250,000  to tho Dominion Government for promoting a similar object
—and  that both  these offers had
been  refused.    So much for "How
not to do it;" let us consider how it
could  bu done.    Rail way work on
Mr. Onderdonk'. contract is now so
far advanced that it ib quite unlikely
the contractor would be prepared to
repent his very liberal oiler.    But it
is very probable that ho may still be
willing to ussist generously any well-
considered scheme for bringing men
into this country during the present
year.    Ho has discovered, what all
largo employers of labor learn sooner
or later, that Chinese labor is neither
profitable nor satisfactory, and ho
hae more  than  once expressed an
anxiety to secure  the services of a
bettor class of men.    If our Government were to communicate with Mr.
Onderdonk with  a view to enlisting
his cooperation, it may bo that the
response would  be a repetition  of
last year's offer, in a somewhat modified form.    Then let the question of
immigration   to this   province
be   brought  before  the   Dominion
Govornment and urged with nil the
influence the   province can  bring.
Thousands of dollars are spent every
year by the Canadian Government
in emigration schemes; but,  while
wc have been contributing largely
to the funds expended in that department, there  has  never been, so
far as we know, any effort put forward  by the Canadian  Emigration
agencies to  represent tho claims of
British Coiumbin.    It may possibly
com.  to be known, when the true
inwardness  of  our  late provincial
Government  has been fully investigated, thnt the fault of this neglect
lies at our own  door.    If our own
Government ha3  not considered it
worth while  to supply emigration
agencies with  facts regarding this
country calculated  to attract emigrants, it  cannot be supposod that
the federal  authorities would send
special  commissioners here for the
express purpose of obtaining these
facts.   Thero    have    been   several
pamphlets and directories published
in tho province in wliich a great deal
of information valuable to intending
immigrants is contained; but most
of them are too costly or too incomplete to be used successfully for emigration purposes.   What wo should
have is a concise pamphlet giving
the most prominent features of onr
climate, soil, minerals, timber limits,
fisheries, and other resources, and
directions as  to the   best  way of
reaching the  province.    This could
bo dono in a pamphlet of less than
100 pages, and if scattered liberally
in the proper places tho result would
unquestionably be a large influx of
permanent settlers. The distribution
of thoso pamphlets might bo undertaken  bjf th. emigration agents of
the fod.ral Govornment.   There aro
many reasons why the federal authorities might be  reasonably expected  to contribute towards assisting emigrants to this province, and
wo do not despair of obtaining such
a contribution if proper steps were
taken.   Let the Government of British Columbia, then, secure the best
terms they can from the Ottawa
Government and from Mr. Ondordonk, and let them supplement the
grants thus   obtained   by a  provincial appropriation as liberal as
the condition of our finances will
permit, and let the joint action of
the two Governments be put forward
vigorously for this purposo, and the
effort can scarcely fail of result. Wo
hope no timo may bo lost in placing
our  emigration   interests   upon   a
sound and rational footing.   Then,
and not till then, shall wo bo iu a
position to deal   intelligently
successfully with the Chinese
tion.
There seems to bo a considerable
fforenee uf opinion between the
people of Fbrt Langley and Langley
Prairie respecting roads in that
municipality. About a week ago a
meeting was held by the prairie people at which resolutions wore passed
in favor of a certain road scheme,
and a deputation was appointed to
wait on the Government for the purpose of securing an appropriation.
We publish todays report of the
proceedings of a meeting held at
Port Langley at which tho former
project was emphatically condemned,
and the repairing of tlie trunk road
advocated. It is a pity the whole
community could not unite in sup
port of one plan. Division and discord may defeat both schemes. Bo-
fore adopting uny plan of road-making the Government Will certainly
have the matter properly enquired
into by a competent engineer, uud
we presume his report will determine
the location.

It is said—we have never tried the
experiment—that when one is hurled

there aro some men in this country

months in order to do this subject
justice.
Professor Young, of Princeton College says:—"Take a railroad from the
earth to the sun, with a train running
40 miles an hour without stops, and it
would take about 205 years and n little over to make tho journey." He
estimates the fare, at a cent n mile, to
bo $030,000. These figures kill the
project.
The figures representing tlie railway
earnings in tho United States are almost incredible, The gross earnings
of tifty-oight roads in 1882 were 8305,-
707,943; in 1881 they were $272,481,-
511; an increase of $33,266,432 in
1882. Of course much of this increase
is due to increased mileage resulting
from construction or acquisition otherwise, but much is due to increased
earnings per milo, >
The Russian Foroigu Minister in his

concentration uf Russian troops in
Southern Russia, would appear to indicate that another Russian attact

improbabilities.

last week. One report says that 7
Chinamen, who were working on the

Rapid Transit.—Tho mail steamor

been idle, and that ^a good deal of
money has changed hands in connect ion
with Port Moody lots.. Property in this
city is also reported in considerable
domand. Wo may look for a real

light in a room upstairs. Upon pro-
cooding to the room thoy found a portion of tho wood-work ablaze, but succeeded in extinguishing tlio flames bo-
fore much damage had been done. The
Ore is supposed to have originated
from tho explosion of n lamp left in
tho room.

Lanoley Municipality.—A pamphlet discriptive of' the Municipality
of Langley, nud drawing attention to
its magnificent agricultural resources,
bus just beeu issued. It is compiled
by a gentleman who has for many
years resided iu the municipality and
whose thorough acquaintance with it and
its resources no person who knows him
would doubt. The pamphlet contains
much interesting and valuable information and is an important addition
to the literature of this country. It is
worthy of remark that the cost of
printing it has been borne entirely by
the author. If others would take ns
grunt an interest in disseminating information respecting the province, our
fertile lauds would not long remain
unoccupied.
B. C. Hospital. — Yesterday tho
Bonrd of Management held an enquiry
respecting certain matters connected
with this institution, but inasmuch as
the result will doubtless be officially
made known through the proper channel it might not be advisable to anticipate thnt course. One circumstance evolved may, however, be mentioned here. An Italian (so at least
wo aro credibly informed) whose solo
ailment was a corn on tho littlo toe of
tho right foot, was admitted to tho institution, and his clothing was in such
n stato witlt vermin that it hnd to bo
burned nnd a new suit supplied to him!
And nil this while the institution is in
debt and roally deserving patients
have been refused admission. We
shall have moro to sny on the subject
at another timo.
By Acclamation
On Saturday the returniiig-offieor
went over to Brownville to receive
nominations for the sent made vacant by Hon. Jno. Robson's acceptance of office. As it was generally understood that there would be no opposition, there wero very few persons
present. After waiting till 1 o'clock,
and there being no other nominations,
the returning-officer declared Mr. Robson elected by acclamation. Mr. Robson is to bo congratulated upon the
event, and .so are tho doctors for tho
good sonso they manifested in not
bringing on a useless contest.

,Sieighing continues good, and tho
weather is clear and fine. An entertainment was given by the Anutteiir
Minstrels on the 0th inst., in aid of
Firo Co. Tlie affair passed oil' most successfully, and tho net proceeds
amounted to nearly 8100. Among
tho connundrums proposed by the
minstrels wns the following: •'Whyis it
that tho employees of Mr. Onderdonk
need never feel hungry J" "Because
ho has a nice littlo Cunning-ham,
Bacon aud Greens," Rev. D. Hor-
lock lias recoived a letter from the
Post-office Department at Ottawa respecting the petition sent from Yalo
asking for n change in the mail arrangements so as to avoid Sabbath
desecration, The latter states that at
present no change can bo made, ns the
mail contract requires mails to reach
Yalo on Thursday und Sunday mornings. Mr. Bacon is very ill witli congestion of the lungs. There is no ico
between Yale and Hopo.
Another Improvement Scheme.
Not long age wo published n scheme
proposed by Mr, Brown to borrow
$35,000 for certain permanent improvements. At the mooting of the
City Council held last Monday night
another improvement scheme was submitted by Mr. Ferris. This scheme
proposes to borrow $20,000, by the issue of debentures for o period of 20
yoars, the debentures to boar (i per
cent, interest. The loan, according to
the plan of Mr. Ferris, is to be expended-as follows: Columbia st. (as
pur specifications already submitted),
$3,000; making Front st.. from Douglas to Ellice, full width of 40 feet, and
widening tlio street from Douglas st,
to bulkhead, near the Holbrook House,
$0,000; macadamizing Columbia street
from Lytton Square to Lewis' stable,
92,000; main sowor on. Columbia st,
from Douglas to Elliott, 81,000; sewer
on Agnes st., same distance, 8750;
sewers on Douglas, Mary, and Blackwood sts., from Columbia st. lo Royal
Avenue, $2,000; building a city hall,
$2,000; opening up streets, $250; total, $20,000. This scheme, like the
one proposed by Mr. Brown, is now before the council and open for discussion by nil citizens. It possesses somo
features which Mr. Brown's had not,
but it seems to us to have omitted
many mutters which nre of very great

From Nanaimo.
From tlio Frw Pi-ch*.
At the last Christmas examinations
in the Public school Miss Maria Bryant carried off the Governor-General's
bronze modal.
We aro informed en reliable authority that Messrs, Smith & Clarke, tho
contractors for tho Nanaimo Postoffice,
will arrive in this city next week to
make the preliminary arrangements to
commence active work ns soon ns the
spring opens.
Tho shaft and drift nt the East Wellington Colliory has opened up n seam
of superior coal. Tho seam is five feot
thick of solid hard coal, and is pronounced by experts to bo the main
Wellington seum of coal. Tho coal has
a good roof nnd is free from partings
ot defects. This is indeed good news
for Mr. R. D. Chandler and his associates, and for the district and province
ns well. Tho seam is improving in
thickness as the drift is extended.
Only the upper bench of the coal is
boing taken out—the lower bench not
being'touched. Tho coal burns clear
and bright and gives a strong heat.
In appearance and weight it resembles
the Wellington coal, and no doubt is
felt about the seam being the continuation of the main Wellington seam.
Mr. G. Wingate, the Superintendent,
is to bo congratulated on the success
thnt hns attended his efforts. The
work ou the railway add nt tho shipping point will be prosecuted with
vigor, bo that cunl enn bo exported at
nn oarly dnto.	
Chinese Blot at Maple Ridge.
For some time there has boen bad
blood between the Chinese railway
laborers and tho white foremen about
Maple Rjdge. Not long ago two Chinamen assaulted one of tho foremen
while nt work. Tho foreman laid nn
information before W, J. Harris, Esq.,
J, P., who issued summonses against
the two Chinamen which he handed to
a special constable for execution. Thq
constnble arrested his men without
difficulty and proceoded to take them
before the magistrate. The prisoners
offered no resistance until they came
to another gang of their countrymen
working'oh tho road. Tho members
of this gang soon began talking loudly
nnd demonstratively, and the prisoners, finding themselves the objects of
sympathy, began making efforts to escape. ' The constable soon saw that he
was in danger of losing his prisoners,
and took them into tho first house ho
could reach for safo keeping. Tho
house (a store) wns soon surrounded,
however, by a howling mob of China-'
men holding in their hands the implements with which they had been
working — axes, shovels, &c They
declared that unless the prisoners were
released they would tear the house to
pieces and rescue them. The owner
of the house, and another whito man
who happened to be thore, became
alarmed and advised the constable to
let the prisoners go «r the house would
be wrecked. After considerable per*
sunsion the constable consonted and
the two prisoners wero released and at
once marched off with the victorious
mob. Tho magistrate then applied to
the Chinese boss to-havo the two prisoners delivered up within a certain
time. Whon the time hnd expired tho
Chinese boss informed the magistrate
that tho mon could not be found. The
mngiBtrato proceeded to an Indian
camp a short distance below Mnplo
Ridgo and requested the Indians to bo
on the lookout for two Chianiunen
who would probably pass that camp on
thoir way down tho rivor. Shortly
afterwards two Chinamen did come lo
tho Indian camp and offered to puy a
good sum to any one who would tako
them down to New Westminster.  Tho
Indians at once made them prisoners,
tied them up, and sent word to tin-
magistrato. Mr. Harris, camo down to
the camp, organized u court aud lined
tho prisoners §15 each. The fines
wero paid nnd the men went back to
Maple Ridge.
The Langley Road Question.
A meeting of tho ratc-puyers was
held in the School-house, Fort Langley, on tho 8th inst., for tho purpose
of disapproving of tho resolutions passed at tho moating hold iu the Lunglvy
Prairie School-house on the 13th of
January, such resolutions being in
fnvor of opening the Township Line
between 8 and 11, and petitioning tho
Government to construct the mine.
On motion, Mr. James Mackie was
called to tho Chair and Mr. James W.
Sinclair acted as Secretary.
On motion nf Mr. Kouneth Morrison, seconded by Mr. Goddnrd, it was
resolved, That this meeting disapprove
of opening the Township Line between
8 and 11 and constructing n road thereon, for tho following reasons,—vIk;—
1st, That it would make it one-and-a-
half miles longer than the present surveyed line of mad; 2nd, That it would
take throe times the amount to mnke
it, as it would run the whole distance
through heavy timber, aud it mile or
more would have to be corduroyed or
bridged; 3rd, Thnt it "'does not now,
nor never would suit the wants of the
Municipality, as it is entirely out of
the centre of population; 4th, This
meeting would earnestly urge upon
the Govornment, then, (if thoy have
any doubts of the facts set forth) to
send a. competent party to report on
thu different routes.
On motion of Mr. Wilson Towle,
seconded by Mr. Murdook Mel.ver, it
was resolved, That in the opinion of
this meeting, tho present lino of mad,
known as the Trunk Road, lending
from tho Yale and New Westminster
Road to the Steamboat Landing, Langley, is the most suitable line of road
that ean bo found to meet the wants
of the settlement and travelling public,
for the following rensous, viz.:—1st,
That thore lias already been expended
ou said road several thousands of dollars iu bridging and grading, which
leaves it now a very passable road, excepting iu the wet season. The con
neeting link, however, is wanting,
viz.:—33 chains of bridging across the
prairie, which will require to be of nn
average height of eight feet, to raise it
above high-water and mako it passable
at all seasons of tho year. Estimated
cost of said bridge, $3,500.; 2nd, That
it is the shortest line of rond that cun
bo found by 1^ miles, to any poiut uf
navigation below Langley, nud we believe no othor Hue of road could be
made that would meet 'the wants of
the settlers nnd travelling public so
well ns the present line, nor nt twice
the cost.
Moved by Mr. Kenneth Mclvor,
seconded by Mr. John Maxwell, That
whereas it is au urgent necessity thnt
thore should be.u lending rond between
the two points, viz,- the Yale road and
Frasor river, passable nt nil stages of
the water; and ns tho people of tho
settlement have uot the financial means
to meet, the expenditure—Be it resolved that the Gorernmont be petitioned
to grant to the Municipality the amount
necessary, and that the money bo
handed ovor to the Municipal Council
and the work undertaken by them.
Carried.
Ou motion of Mr. John Maxwell,
seconded by Mr. Wilson Towle, it was
resolved thnt Messrs. James Mackie,
Wilson Towle, nud Kenneth Morrison
be appointed a committee to drnft u
petition to tho Government nnd circulate the snine among the ratepayers of
Langley municipality for signatures,
and thnt Mr. James Mackie be deputed
as a delegate to wait upon the city
and district Members, to urgo upon
them the necessity of granting tho demands entertained in tho resolutions
passed at this meeting.
On motion of Mr. James Houston,
seconded by Mr. James Taylor, it was
resolved that a copy of theso resolutions be forwarded to each of the city
und district Members, nnd also n copy
to the editor of the Columbian.
A vote of thanks being given to tho
Chairman and Soorotary, the meeting
adjourned till Saturday tho 17th of
February, nt 7 p. m.
Death or a Remarkable Nan.
From tlio Port An-tli. (MIcU.) Ncwi.
Capt. John Longworth, late of God-
erich, Ontario, died ou the 17th day
of January, 1883, nt the house of Mrs.
Winsor, Sr., in Point Austin, Mich,
Tho deceased was born on the 7th
day of April, 1700, in tho county of
West Menth, Ireland, Ho entered tho
British service when quite n young
nun, nnd served under the Duke of
Wellington in the Peninsular war, aud
holds from the government of Groat
Britain medals, with numerous clasps,
each clasp having thereon tho name of
one of tho great battles of tliat war in
which ho fought.
Aftor the final surrender of Bona-
parte the great, he returned to Ireland,
where he remained in tho military service ns a civil engineer, until tho
spring of tho yenr 1830, when he left
the service nud emigrated to Canada,
reaching Quebec in May, 1830, en-
torod the servico of the Canada Company of a civil engineer, and soon after
moved to Goderioh, Ontario. He built
the first harbor nt thnt pluce,—in fnct
the first ever built on Lake Huron,—
and had charge of ninny other public
works for that company.
He continued to reside at Goderioh
for nearly fifty-three years, nnd until
Octobor 20th last, when Ids grandson,
Richard Winsor, brought him to Fort
Austin on account of his failing health,
that in his last days ho might have
that loving caro and attention which
he needed from his many children,
grand-children nnd givnt-gmnd-ehild-
ren here. Two of his great-grandchildren. •—Richard, Jr., nud Amos
Winson, -are almost men, and woro

Winsor, Sr,, Miss Jnne Longworth,
nud Mi's. Noill, of Port Austin, ami
Mrs. Lizurs, wife of Judge Liz!irs of
Stratford, Ontario, aud Mrs, Jno.

CHAPTER XXII.
FRIBNDS    AND    FOES.
Muriel recognized him at a glance,
and with somo annoyance; but sho
concluded that lie must bo staying nt
Broomieknowe, and that Miss Hardwicke had brought liim, as sho was in
tlie habit of bringing her guests, to see
the picture-gallery and the park.
"Lot Sir Duncan know," sho said to
the servant, as he announced the visitors."
Tlie man paused a moment—"Mv.
Bennett is with Sir Duncan, ma'am."
((0h, toll liim Miss Hardwicke and
Captain Badger arc here."
Captain Badger had vory quick ears,
and was puzzled at tho sentence ho
waa pretty sure that he had heard correctly. Surely Bennett would not bo
iu the house without seoing Mrs. Los-
lie, yot sho did not seem to know ho
was there. Presently Sir Duncan and
Ronald entered; and to hfo surprise
tho latter said good-morning to the
ladies, so that evidently they had not
met beforo. In a vory short time Miss
Hardwicko rose to go, Sho had buen
itl at ease, tlio conversation had (lagged unaccountably, and sho now proposed that she should walk down the
avenue and wood, and that her pony-
cirriage should meet thom at tho
farthest gate. It was tho usual programme on theso occasions, for the
wood-walk was laid out with great
taste, and the views from it wore
among the sights of the neighborhood.
"Will you not seo tho picture-gallery first ?" said Muriel.
"Oh, I don't know that Captain
Badger cares for pictures," said Laura,
glancing at him.
"Pictures! Oh, delighted! I enjoy
seeing pictures,'1 said Badger, who did
not know a Hobbema from a Rubens.
"Indeed! Then with Mrs. Leslie's
leave, we will look in there on our way
to the park, so wo can say good-bye
now," answered Laura.
The gallery at Inverallan was another of tho recognized sights, and for
this reason a special access had beon
provided, in order that visitors might
Bee it without disturbing the family.
It had long since come to be understood that Miss Hardwicko ahould take
her friends thoro unaccompanied, for,
as she onco naively remarked to Muriel, "It's far jolier to go without the
owners, because then one needn't look
at moro than one wants to sec " Still,
Miss Forbes, or Mrs. Leslie, hnd on
various occasions shown the way to
the gallery, but Laura know woll that
they would not do so to-day.
"Very woll," was all Muriel said in
reply to her last remark; and then sho
rang the bell, and desired the servant
tu unlock tho outer door of tlio gallery, and wished her visitors good-
morning.
"What style of painting do you prefer?'" said Laura to her companion, as
they passed through the folding-door.
"Thero is a fine collection of portraits,
pictures of the Dutch landscape-school,
etchings, and modern art."
"You seem te know all about it, at
any rate," replied Captain Badger.
"Considering that almost all our
visitors want to come here, that is not
to be wondorod at."
"And does Mrs. Leslie uovcr condescend to accompany you V
Laura glanced quickly at him. Was
it in order to see more of Mrs., Leslie
that ho wished to walk through tho
gallery ? Sho answered him shrewdly—
"Not usually. I like to take my
guests myself. She sometimes comes
when I havo very charming people
with me."
•'I understand. So thoso arc tho
portraits, aro they?"
"Yes, this ia a Gainsborough, and
this a Raoburn. Do you admire them?"
"This is a tremendous follow in tho
Highland dress—1743,1 bbo—a rank
Jacobite, I dare say."
"Oh, ycB; after giving up all his
plate to the Prince, and seeing his
oldoot son killed, he was beheaded
himself."
"AU for an idea. I would have
sworn allegiance to tho new King, and
kept my money and my life."
"I dare say you would havo boen
wiser than ho. Shall wo go on, or do
you want to see the etchings ?"
"I think not—thanks; they're not
much in my line. Does Bennett como
over horo much ? Ho had been with
Sir Duncan this morning."
"I believe he sits witli him a good
deal. I havo twice known that ho was
there, though I did not see him."
"Curious way to mako up to the
heiress, isn't it?"
"You seem quito certain that he
means to make up to that heiress ?
asked Laura, with a hardly perceptible
omphasis on that,
"I don't soe any reason to doubt it,
judging-from the way he spoko of her
on board ship. Ho soemod to know
her uncommonly wall, and meant to
mako tho most of it. Ho has forgotten
tho sergeant's daughter, poor thing,
by this time! I can't say 1. admire his
choico. Mrs. Leslie's protty enough,
but she's awfully stiff, one can't talk
with a woman liko that. I prefer more life and greater caso."
Miss Hardwicko apparently did not
care for tho implied compliment, for
she began to point out tho sharp crags
of tho Cobbler and tho cloft crown of
Ben Lomond, visible from tho glass
doors by which they wero now passing
out from the gallery into tho garden.
Captain Badger cared as little for
scenery as lio did for pictures, but he
was not averse to a walk in fine
grounds with a protty woman beside
him, and he did his best to improvo
the occasion. Miss Hardwicke, however, was less gay than usual, and he
found it uphill work, and wondered if
there were any chance at all for him
with this wayward aud seemingly capricious girl.
Tlie truth was that a varioty of contending feelings wero troubling hor
composure, and rendering her inattentive and unready when tho usual challenges fell upon her ear. Sho had admired Mrs. Leslie with girlish enthusiasm, but Muriel's sedate and quiot
manner, and inability to appreciate
the tasteless chair which Laura miscalled "fun," had somowhat damped
the fooling, or at least had kept it in
abeyance. Still, she always longed to
win her approval, and was glad when
Muriel greeted her kindly and spoke
to her with her own winning smilo.
To-day tho smile had boon wanting,
and Laura had not been surprised, for,
for the first time in her lifo, she had
felt herself pert and her companion
vulgar. Evory word ho uttered in
that harsh yet insinuating voico had
annoyed her. His compliments were
impertinent, iiis phrases slangy, his
appearance underbred; and in the
stately drawing-room of Inverallan,
with Muriel's well-trained voico in
sharp contrast to him, Laura had beon
vory angry with herself for having
brought him. It was not only Muriel's
criticism that -die deprecated; Ronald
Bennott had buen there, had seon, had
heard, must think her unconscious of
Captain Badger's peculiarities; and
moreover, sho folt keenly that he, the
son of a country minister, looked every
inch a gentleman, and was perfectly
insensible to tho attraction of her good
looks, hor money, and hor kind fooling
toward himself.
Vou'ro driving as ladies drivo, Miss
Hardwicke-*d6 you know at what a
pace yon'.o going?'' asked Badger, uneasily, as tho little carriage swung
round a corner.
"I suppose I am going rather fast,"
said Laura, rousing herself and taking
a pull at the ponies' heads.
"Does Bennett live on this road
noiutnvhoro? I ought to calMhero some
day."
"I can put you down here if you
Uko. Tho manso is close at hand,"
she replied, slackening their speed.
"Oh, won't you cornel you know
them,don't you?"
"Of courso I do; but I n'ould rather
not call to-day," answered Laura.
"Oil, then, I'll defer the pleasure;'
I should not like to shorten this drive,'
said Captain Badger; and Laura,whip-
pod up her pomes again mid drove
rapidly homo.
CHAPTER XXIII.
TWO   HBI1U*8SE8,
After hor unsuccessful visit to_ Inverallan, Laura Hardwicko complained
to hor brother, as they sat at dinner,
that Badger had bored her, and no one
at Inverallan had liked him.
"Why on earth do you let him hang
about you?" said Ernest'Hardwicko.
"I don't liko him myself."
"Yet you are civil to him when he
comes, and so am I, and so he goe3 on
coming. I wonder why we all do that
sort of thing. By-tho-byo, Ernest, ho
says Mr. Bennett wants to marry Mrs.
Leslie."
"The deuce ho does! So much the
worse for him, I should say."
"I think Captain Badger would do
it himsolf if he could."
"He! Good heavens, Laura! If I
thought lio had tho cheek to dream of
such a thing I'd—I'd—"
"Oh, Ernest, Ernest, how you tiro
up about her! What is it I wonder, that
makes her rule peoplo so—can you tell
me?"
"No; yos—it's diflicult to express.
She makes a man fool and boliovo
somehow that sho is a perfectly pure-
hearted, womanly woman; no ono ever
saw a glanco from hor eyes or heard a
word from hor lips that he would be
sorry for—that's the meaning of it, I
think."
Laura looked grave. As sho thought
over various flirtations, of an innocent
enough sort, with which she had amused herself, sho doubted if her brother
could havo said as much of her. He
had rebuked her without intonding it.
"I've asked Bennett to come and
stay here for a couple of days when
the Grays come," continued ho. "I'd
liko thom to meet him, and it's a horo
for him always going home at night.
Miss Gray would be a good match for
him, too—don't you think so ?"
"Vory," said Laura, shortly. She
began to fool piqued. Evon Ernest
talked to her as if sho could have no
interest in Ronald Bennott, though
evory ono about hor praised and admired him. She wished ho had not
beon coming to stay; but as he was to
come sho resolved that in her own
house neither Miss Gray nor any one
elso could eclipse her.
Tho parties at Broomieknowe wero
vory pleasant of their kind. There waa
a perpetual stir, a searching for amusement, a desire for fun, unknown in tho
quietor entertainments at Inverallan;
but tho fun, such as it was, pleased
tho guests, for, as they were mostly
young, they enjoyed the alternations
of dancing, billiards, round games, and
charades, which followed each other iu
rapid succession. In all these Laura
shone. She was invariably well-dressed, and tlio little oxcitomcut of the
games and of her position as hostess,
heightened her color and added sparkle
to her eyes, so that sbo looked undeniably handsome.
Ronald began to think that she was
prettier than he had imagined, and
was uot sorry to find an opportunity
of obliging hor. A eharado liad been
arranged, but at the last moment one
of the actors who was not staying in
the house sent an excuse, and Laura
found it diflicult to replace hiin.
"If your sister would liko it, I think
I could take the part," said Ronald to
Hardwicko.
"She'll bo dolighted," said Earnest,
and was dismayed to find that Laura
was less pleased than he had anticipated.
"Supposo he has never-acted—ho
might break down," said she; "but I'll
ask him. I hoar you havo volunteered
to holp us, Mr. -Bennott; it is vory
good of you. Is this to be your debut,
may I ask?"
"Not quite; I belonged to two theatrical clubs in India,' said Ronald,
smiling. "I am used to acting, Miss
Hardwicko."
"And you never told me! Oh, Mr.
Bennett, how unkind of you! but it's
just like you—you always keop yourself in tho background," said Laura,
.coloring.
"That is hest for me," he aaid,
gently, "and hotter than putting one's
solf in the foreground, isn t it ?"
"Yes, among strangers; but here—
you might have told Ernest—you don't
do yourself justice among your
friends."
