clfHf'ly never in tailed to lio conferred
under tbit Dock Act, 1879, does not
appear to un to luive received tlmt
serious consideration to which. Us
gravity justly entitles it at the hands
of every tax-payer in the Province.
Tha Act is comprised in a single
section and we slntll placn it, together with the marginal note, before our rondel's:
In the event of the Gov-   >**,lio"*s*e**M.

of tlie Graving   Doult at

Now,  it must he  perfectly  plain.
(Biid'tvr the Act unci  the  mnigiual
i oles togethe*, lliat tl?:s staiute wits
i> te:ided to p ovid* for tho expend"'-
tii'e for dock pu■•poses, and no other,
tbe moneys to be advanced  by tlie
Government of Canada,    It is quite
true Lhut tbe AUoniey-iV.eial told
tbe  House tbe other day tlmt tlie
mu-'g'tial notes should not be taken
into account at it"— .hut they were
the work of nn ir'asponsili-e printer,
and of  no legal importance what-
, ere!*.    But it by no means follows
that it is so  because the  pi-eseiit
AtUr-ney-Gene al bus s»'d it.   That
furct'onoiy litis  proved  himself to
be a Vflvy; nn'eliable, interpreter, as
he has proved   himself   to   he n
wic'ched   umber, of  law.     Worse
than  nil,  bo bus   proved   himself
'* capable of   nmiiite.-'prci.'ug law  to
suit bis own purpoisus.    ff it he true
lliitt tbe   iiiU'giiinl  notes  were  the
t work of   an i-responsihle. printer,
i this only shows that tlie business of
"the Attoniey-Geiioial-'a department
sis  conducted  in the same torse, iin-
kCiris»ii,ntii)Hiil    manner   that    was
■proved  by the  lecent  investigation

Nat's depaiiineiit. But assuming tbe
Itrutli of tlieext'-noidinary statement
■.made by the Attorney-General —
BthrowiiMj the  hi utile upon the poor
['printer'' in   this department, as he
■lid  upon  an i**Mispoiisiblo suhnrdi-
nite iu mother—isn't it. rather odd
Lhai the "iirinte'*''should have made
'lie mistake of supposing that the

Knitted aiicb a monst'ons indiscretion
to pass au Act authorizing tbe

Have been constructed without pro*
H'miciul revenue, it oerinitily is very
I'.ii.rnordiimry   that   the   "printer"
llioiiM have conceived the impression
fo emphatically conveyed in the mar
Jinal  note.    But if any doubt still
lingers in any mind  it should certainly ha removed by the fact that
Ii two succeeding sessions the Gov
Irtiuifiit  asked for a special   vote
cover one hundred  tons of oe-
lient that might   possibly be  relit ire d.   If tbe Act under consideration really conferred the (tower that
\ now claimed, there would not have
wen the slightest occasion to provide
for   the    possible  contingency   by
lacing a sum on the estimates.   In
^80 and 1881 tho Government re*
giiized  the necessity of obtaining
■0 special sanction of the Li^gisbiture
* the purchase of one hundred tons
1 cement; und ye1, iu 1882, we find
jpm actually purchasing one than-
|W tons without that sanction !
It there remains yet another class
■evidence.    When introducing the
ck Act, it was distinctly oxplain-
I to tho House that the sole object
I'the measure was to provide for
expenditure of  the Dominion |

followers wm he tu dm' the iinprenion
that the Act was ever intende* tu
be construed as they would now have
it. Ui dot- u'l the cireiiuistHi.ces the
only rational theory seems to lie that
tho Government, finding themjulves
iii au exceeding tight place, hit upon
that expedient in order to extijcate
themselves. It was bad enowjLto
involve tho province in an unconstitutional and highly improper expen
diture of thirty or forty thousand
dollars under tlie Act in question ;
but if they can expend that, there is
nothing to hinder their expending us
much more as they like. We contend
that, in this matter, the Government
have been guilty of a flagrant constitu
tional wrong, for which they deserve
to be impeached. But, since the
Attorney-Genet.***! c'uj'uislb/eright to
expend provincial revenue adl.bitum
under the Dock Act, has it not occurred to the Legislature that the
Act should be at once repealed or
amended, so that no further wrong
may he done thereunder?

Dr. Wm. A. Hammond finds nver-
healod apartments to be a potent cause
of nervous irritability. If wc would
preserve our aminlrility aud our tranquillity of mind wd should live in woil-
ventilated rooms kept at a temperature
of about sixty-live degrees.
A successful operation, during which
tbe patient wns kopt immersed in

''permanent baths" are sniil to be
especially valuable iu discs of burns.
Of the sense of taste, Prof. MeKen-
drifk states that the base of thetunguo
is most sensitive to bitters, nnd the
tip to swceia. A substance must he
suluble in the fluid of the mouth tu
create taste, but no delhiite relation
has been found between the chemical
condition of bodies and their taste.
A now white niotal and malleable
bronze is produced by the decoloration
of copper by means of farro-manganese. Tht composition givus a metal
as white as silver ami as malleable as
the German silver obtained with nickel.
For a humnalila white metal in plates
zinc or brass is added to the composition.
DrT, Slerry Hunt has calculated
that the amount of carbonic acid stored
in the liinoKtoneii of the earth would
form not less thnn two hundred atmospheres equal in weight to our own.
This, together willi the carbon of tlm
coal-boils, must have been drawn from
the air, which he believes gradually
receives its supply «f the gas from
interstellar space]
German measurements give the following ns among tho greatest dtdly
quantities of rainfall recorded in Europe; At Colburu, Sept. 7,1880, f.uir
inches of rain foil in seVen hours. At
Brealau, August ti, 1858, fniir nnd a
half inches fell. At Kl'iusllml, in the
Ilarz, tho daily max i mu in observed is
four and a half inches; and at I.lnch-
enschward, in the Black Forest, it is
five inches.
Modern improvements have increased the power of the microscope
so great I v that it is now mado to magnify about 100,000 diameters. The
butt unaided human vision can see no
objects much smaller than the throe-
hundredth of au Inch in dinmoter; hut
the most skillful microscopiHta, with
their best Instruments, are able to
examine monads a hundred-thousandth
of an inch iu diameter. Beyond this
minuteness is obscurity. It has heen
estiinatod that the ultimate particles
or atoms composing all matter can be
no more thai; one twenty-nulliom.lt of
nn ituih iu diameter, so that it aeems
hardly probable that they will ever bt
revealed to human eyes.

Representation vs. Misrepresentation.
The Nunaimo Free Press lias undertaken to controvert the proposition that increased representation
ahould be conceded to the electoral
district of New Westminstor. We
have neither tho desire nor the right
to find fault with our contemporary
for holding and enunciating views of
ita own upon this or any other sub
ject; but we think wo havo a right
to expect that it will dofine tile
grounds upon which it proposes dealing with the important question of
representation, and, having done so,
that it will discuss the question fairly upon its merits, and not seek, by
fomenting sectional jealousies, to misdirect the public mind. Our contemporary would prefer to deal with
New Westminster city nnd district
as if they were one, and for no other
reason that we can see than that to
treat the two electoral districts as
one would tend to strengthen a consciously weak argument. Wc submit that New Westminstor city end
district are not "virtually one, the
same as the city and district of Nanaimo." New Westminster city con-
atitutea a distinct electoral district,
with its separate voter's list, and
Bends one member. New Westminster district in like manner is also
distinct, and sends two members.
Nanaimo city and district constitute
one electoral district, with one
voter's list, and will justly bo entitled hereafter to elect two members.
Why, then, complicate matters by
considering two things equal that
art not equal 1 Besides, it is the district, not the city of New Westminster for which increased representation is demanded, and it will, therefore, be more simple and convenient
to deal with that which is really in
Issue, viz., the district of New Wes
minster. There is still another
ground of objection to the proposed
compounding dodge, The city of
Now Westminster is a commercial
community. The district is agricultural ; and there is really no more
reason why these two should bo virtually treated as one than them is
that Nanaimo and Comox should be
treated as one, and our contemporary
will readily perceive that, by hitching Comox on with Nanaimo, we shall
gain a point as aguinst him iu the
argument. Taking the voter's lists
for 1881, our contemporary shows
that, while Now Westminster ilis
triet returns a member for every 352
voters, Nanaimo returns, or will
hereafter return, a member for every
276 votera, but it ventures the pro-
diction that if a general election took
place now, it would be found that,
owing to the draft railway work has
made upon our population, New
Westminster would not have more
Voters in proportion to her representation than Nanaimo has. When
tbe editor of the Free Frees ventures
upon the field of prophesy, he is even
more unfortunate than when confining himself to the arena of what he
is pleased to regard as argument.
No doubt some of the New West-
minster voters have sought employ
ment on tho railway works, ns have
tome of those ol Nanaimo and other
districts; but the right to vote in
the district still remains, and it is
obvious that, owing to contiguity,
New Westminstor would be much
more likely to poll these votes than
Nanaimo or any mere remote constituency. It does not appear fair
to conclude, therefore, that, for practical purpoees, railway construction
has decimated the Voter's list for
New Westminster to a greater extent than it has that of Nanaimo.
But there is another and still more
cogent reason for contradicting (he
aiaertion of onr contemporary. There
■re one hundred and sixteen new
names registered and to be added to
the voter's list of the district of New
Wettminster. Add 116 to 704, nnd
you have 820 as the voting power of
tha district, which would give 410
to each member, against Nanaimo's
476 I And if we might be permitted
to accompany our contemporary into
tho field of prophesy, we could easily
■howgood ground for anticipating a
very large increase, indeed, in the
near future as Use result of railway
worie and tlie throwing open of railway IWnd* within th* district.   But
everything in the nature of argument
is silenced by the alarming announcement that "an increase in the
"representation of New Westminster
"would place the control of the Government in tbe hands of "Victoria
"and New Westminster und nil the
"other districts in the provincowould
"be swamped,"—these two districts
would have "the power to ride
"rough-shod over all the other elis-
"tricts of the province combined."
Our contemporary was prophesying
a moment ago. He must be joking
now; and n grim joke it is—New
Westminster and Victoria joining
hand, for the purpose of "swamping," "riding rough-shod over all the
other districts" !! We are led to expect some very extraordinary phenomena on this planet of ours during
tho millennial period; but the Nanai--
mo oracle has painted a picture that
discounts anything hitherto foreshadowed. Evan if the general tendency were in the direction of New
Westminster and Victoria uniting as
against all the rest of the province,
is it not too much to ask the public
to believe that the mere granting of
one more member to the former
would culminate in such an extraordinary state of matters 1 Such unmitigated nonsense is altogether unworthy of the press of Nanaimo,
moro especially when the object
aimed at is that of creating false
alarm and jealousy against a Community which has certainly never
evinced a disposition to "swamp" or
"ride rough-shod" over any district)
more particularly that of Nanaimo.
But we should be glad if our contemporary would indicate the basis
upon wliich he would favor re-adjustment of the representation, He has
admitted it to be sadly out of joint j
but there must be some basis, some
general principle to work upon.
What shall it be!
Editorial Notes.
Measures are boing adopted for th.
purpose of protecting the marine
wealth of the country from that wanton wastefulness and unreasoning greed
which would, if unchecked, load to
depiction. What about our forest
wealth. Is it not time that some regulations wor. enforced for the purpose
of preventing wanton or careless de.-
tructien of our magnificient lumber
forests ? Nut only has indiscriminate
lumbering been permitted, but, through
carelessness or downright wantonness,
thousands of acres of our must valuable timber lands have been devastated
by fire. Has the reader any adequato
conception of the commercial value
of these pine forests 'I Our nttention
was arrested the other day by a paragraph in a Puget Sound paper, wherein it was staled that at thu current
stuuipage rat. of 50 cents per thousand feet a quarter section in Washington Territory would yield six thousand
dollars! Just think of the millions of
dollars' worth of timber destroyed by
fire. Acting on tho principle, "Better
late than never," wouldn't it be well
to adopt some regulations calculated tn
protect our forests against prodigal
waste and Wanton destruction 1

ANDREW FISHER.
Tho labor question will soon become
the overshadowing one in this Province, and more particularly in this
part of it. Unskilled labor demands
$2.50 per day, aud there is a short
supply. What it will ba iu a little
whilo, when new work* requiring several thousand men shall hare been
fairly launched, we leave tin, reader
to imagine. Railway work must go
on at whatever cost, and it is* greatly
to bo feared that tho ordinary industries, such as farming, lumbering nnd
fishing, will sutler severely. Already
the farmers complain that it is impossible to get labor, and it is to bo feared
that the demand upon axemen created
by tha railway contracts now being
given out in this District will leavo the
mill logging camps short-hnnded. It
is very remarkable that present and
prospective demands do not attract
labor to the eountry. It waa undoubtedly a mistake not to have organized
a system of colonization in connection
with railway work, so that a desirable
class of laborers might havo been provided for that work, who would, in
turn, have become permanent settlers.
It would have paid the contractors to
have done this. It would have paid
the Province tn have dune it. It
would have paid tho Dominion. Surely
then it would! have paid fur all three
to combine in carrying out au efficient
scheme for that purpose. Hut these
great railway works have-been launched
in a happy-go-lucky sort *f way, and
now not only must exott/ktmt prices
be paid for everything, bull ffeariy all
the moneymustbesent out ufthveountry for food products which our own
fertile acres cannot supply owing to
the impossibility of obtaining labor.
Under these circumstances the enormous expenditures upon railway works
will contribute very much less towards
the permanent benefit of the province
than we had a right to expect. Ii it
top late now to make an effort to introduce- the right class of labor 1

Moral Support. - Mr. Costigan,

Ireland,1 gave notice, on the 2(ith ult.,
of a motion. It asks the1 Commons to
renew the expression df their loyalty
aud devotion to Her Mjtjestey'S person and government, and then sets
forth:—!. That, present condition of
Ireland has been observed with regret. 2. That Irishmen in Canada are
among the most loyrtl and prosperous
subjects! 3. That the Dominion has
not received its proper share of the Irish
emigr^fllttti because of estrangement
tuwHrriE-? the Imperial Government.
4. That It it) desirable tltrtt this should
tut continue. 5. That lf-iland should
s giveil a similar form ii* self-government id that existing iii (lie provinces
of Canada, fi. That clemency be extended by Her Majesty to persons
now imprisoned for political offences.
The Bishop's Concept.—•Tbe concert given by members of the Episcopal Church, last Tuesday evening, was
a success both financially and artistically; add the tiishop nf New West-
niinste'r., under wh'oSo management the
cnicfunhiicnt was given, may fairly
be Congratulated. The programme
cont,-Sued quite a number uf part
songs, whicli is a pleasing variation
from tl/b customary solt-'s which usually
make up the chief part of our concerts. Iti the choruses there was frequently perceptible a lack of balance
between the parts, whieh detracted
somewhat from the offect. The most
enjoyable feature of the entertainment
was undoubtedly tho solo singing of
Mrs. Sillitoe iind Mrs. Moresby, which
was received with very enthusiastic
applause. This is Mrs. Sjllitoe'a first
appearance on a public platform in this
city, and we Nre sure it is the hope of
all who heard her that she may
consent to favor the lovers of music
twain with a similar pleasure. Mrs.
Moresby sang butter than usual, which
is saying a good deal. It was a matter
of regret that the Bishop., whoso name
appeared on the programme for a song,
was forced to withdraw in consequence
of a severe cold. Uis b-rwhip played
the accompaniments on the piano with
his accustomed skill.
If the astronomical view that the
moon was once a part of the earth's
mass bo true, tho moon iu its early
age must have revolved much nearer
to th's earth than now and must
have caused prodigious tides upon its
parent planet—as recently shown by
Prof, Ball. Prof. J. S. Newberry
finds' in geological evidence a refutation
of this theory—to the extent, at least,
of proving conclusively that no such
(itfe* could have existed since tho
commencement of the geological record. He (Toes not hesitate to assert
there/ore' that the astronomers aro jn
error iii regard tn the moon's genesis";
or that \{ it was ouc'e a portion of the
earth, t,hs separation took placo .at
a period so remote that it had receded
to nearly its present distanco before

The Dock.
The thing is wearing a vory ugly
look. The province is called upon to
pay $200,000 additional for cement.
Reed Bros, claim $42,000 damages,
and are pretty certain to get it, which,
with expenses, will make at the very
least, S5q,000. And now tllci-e is a
great probability of the present contractors Having a heavy claim" for damages, arising out of unauthorized change
of site and other causes. Add to these
tho prospect of tlie dock beimf ijnished
by divy work under the able management of the Chief Commissioner, mid
the prospect is worse than discournging.
It is absolutely alar'rilinfc. . Instead of
goiiij, ou and on in the Uark, voting
away large amounts of the provincial
revenue, the House should -mv'o put
dow.ll its foot firmly and refused to proceed another inch until sqhie intelligent fioiK'liyr.on can be readied regarding the cm ipletion and future maintenance of'what bids fair to prove a
inillatiiuo around Columbia's neck.
Censitriiig (he GOYStnment.
On Tuesd-iy Mr, Smithe gave formal
notice of the following resolution:—
That whereas the Government, in
direct contravention of the unanimous
resolution of thU House, passed ou the
15th day of Fou'ruary, 1881, have refused tU bring down a Dill to provide
for equitable representation of the people in the legislature of this province,
and
Have neglected td arrange with the
Dominion Government the terms upon
which land within the forty-mile railway belt on the nlabiland can be gained by bottlers, and have made no effort
by bringing out one of the graving dook
einjineer.H to arrange such modifications
t-f the dock specifications us might materially reduce tho cost of the work to
the province without impairing its
stability, and
Have granted statutory authority to
Canada upon three mouths' notice being given to take dock construction
out of brovincial control under conditions both humiliating and oppressive
lo the province.
Bo it therefore resolved that this
House do therefore censure the government for neglecting the interests of
thegcountry iu the above questions of
policy. ^	
An Extraordinary SttUchient.
In tho House on Wednesday, Mr.
Mara desired to know why it was that
a petition from Yale for niinilcipal incorporation had received ho attention
at the hands of tile Government, to
which Mr. Walkem t'eplie'd that "the
petition in tjuestiot! was rsent down
for the town o'f Yalo for the purpose
<if getting hold of a sliaro df the litjuor
license, as nuist of the iJu-mle-jH houses
there were saloons." MK.Matlj indignantly repelled the reflection iin Yille,
and cWended that, as a community,
YaU Would compare favorably with
Victoria. The nlajority of the inhabitant were not Saloon-keepers. They
desired to be incorporated in order
that they might be in a position to tax
tlifmiselves for the purpose of main-
taHiing a lire department and carrying
out other improvements. Certainly
tile remarks of the Premier wero most
improper and uncalled for. Thore are
few communities iu the Province mure
enterprising and Bclf-reliant than Yale,
and there at-e few for which the Government has done so little in return
for the largo contributions to the revenue. And yet the Premier refers to
that community as a lot ef saloonkeepers, whose petition is to bo treated
with silent contempt!
TJit! Legislature.
The House met on Tuesday and was
occupied during the greater part of the
sitting with the estimates.
A lengthy discussion arose ori an
item for tho dock, in the course of
which tha Government were ■Jeve'rely
handled for withholding Hiforrtiutioii
from the Houso respectirig the probable cost and manner of carrying ou the
work. In the course of this discussion
the leader of the Of/position said the
Government were undoubtedly intending to carry on the work by day labor,
as soon ob the' session was oyer, when
they would iii -ill probutplity have five
hundred mCit at work. Other mombers'
complained about being asked to vote
these large sums for dock work "in the
dark."
Ou the item of 82,000 for the expenses of the last DeCosinna m'lssion, a
discussion elicited the fact-that the
mission cost the Province $t?j600 and
that the tiipense arising from Mr. De-
Cosmos oeing special Agent ii still
going on: *      . v
On Wednesday the House was again
occupied with tho estimates. Nothing
noteworthy occurred during ttte sitting,
although a largo numberjOritems were
passed. As the appivpnvinn's1 for the
various districts came up, each member
iu turn .mads the usual vain' protest
against t^e inadequacy of thu Hiuu.
On Thursday the House got through
the estimates in chief aud had an evening session, when the supplementary
ostimatos were introduced.
At the evening "Voting several resolutions were passWb aumngst them
one for an address yi% nijij that a resident Supreme Court Judge bo stationed at New Westniinstetr, The Westminster-Moody railway bill went

In researches upon the petroleums
of the Caucasus, M. Schutzenberger
has observed that, although conducted
with the utmost earn, Ins analyses
frequently showed more than one hundred por cent of matter. A like result was obtained with two other sub-
stances. Following up the investigation, ho lias found that sodium and
copper appear to bo affect certain pro-
(fuels as to produce 'ho anomaly observed; white if the articles so affected
aro oxposoil for a short time to sunlight thoy give a normal analysis. It
is suggested, as a possible explanation,
that the weight of atoms may vary
within certain narrow limits, and thst
in tnflcaae of the'hydrocarbons it may;
be modified by the action of sodium
or by light. If conftrujed* M. Schut-R*
enberger.'s discovery will have an in^

KITH AND KIN.
(Continued.)
"I am too much shocked and grieved
to say any mure," replied Mrs. Cunis-
broug'h, really hurt,
"I am very sorry if you are hurt,
mother. Unfortunately, Del and I
have so very much timo on our hands,
and so little to do with it, that we get
bitter sometimes, and wish we were
housemaids."
"Toil little know what yon are talking about. That murmuring spirit of
yours is shucking, Judith. I can't
really iinagine.what you have to complain of,''said her mother. with the
sublime inconsistency of a weak-willed
woman, who is tenacious of no proposition except the one that asserts tliat
surely novor was mortal vexed as she
is vexed. "You have a houso to live
in, clothes to covor you, and food to
•at."
"So has a well-to-do farmer's cow in
winter. If I felt like a cow, I should
consider myself well oil', I dare say."
"Who said anything about cows?
You always wander so far from tho
point. Not only that, but you have
your uncle's money to look to. When
he dies, you will, uvety one, ho well
off, and I shall perhaps have a little
rest., if I'm not-killed with trouble before ever he goes — poor, dear old
man!" |
The last words came hastily, as an
afterthought.. "It is best to bow at
the name of the devil—ho can do so
much harm." Mrs. Conisbrough had
become suddenly desirous of counteracting the impression which her first
remarks might-have produced, that
she cherished hopes of Mr. Aglionby's speedy demise, or that she con
lidered him a stingy curmudgeon. If
any such speech ever penetrated t<
his ears, the service uf all these years
would assuredly go for naught.
"I would far rather that uncle would
help me make myself well-off," said
Judith. "I mean as soon as I got the
chance to write to some of the women's
righta ladies, and ask thorn to help me
only they will very naturally inquire.
'What can you do V and I must perforce answer,. 'Nothing, madam. /'
"If ever you so disgrace yourself
you—you will break my heart," said
Mrs. Coniabrough, who at tlie words
"women's rights" beheld in her mind's
eye a woman on a platform, dressed in
men's clothes, aud idioutiug at tho top
of her voice. She herself was one of
those women who never look at a newspaper, and viewed them in the light of
useful protectors to white-painted pantry shelves, when not ruined for that
exalted purpose by the stupid persons
who would cut them, ins-end of le.iv'
them iu the original broadsheet.
But Judith had left the room, far
more deeply moved and agitated than
her mother, though the latter bore
•very outward appearance of chagrin.
Mrs. Conisbrough was left to fume
over her troubles. She accused her
girls of being obstinate, self-opinionated, and 'unconventional; she did not
know where they had got their restless
■spirit froni;;-in lier days young people
-were niiwh moro strictly brought up,
and scarcely ventured to open their
mouths before their elders—the fact
being that her own daughters had
never been brought up at all. She
always allowed things to drift as far
aud as long as she could. Tho girls
had grown up, struggled up, scrambled up—anything that tho reader
likes. They had never been brought
up by a hand firm and tender at once;
and this fact accounted for some of
their defects as well as for some of
their virtues. Then again, though
tlieir lives were even moro secluded,
their opportunities fewer, their means
narrower than hers had been at their
age, though they lived at the end of
the world, in a dale without a railway,
their souls had received a sprinkling
from the spray of that huge breaker of
the nineteenth century spirit which we
call progress. How it had reached
them it would have been hard to say,
but perhaps the very silence uud monotony of -their' existence had enabled
them to hear its thunder as it rolled
onward.
"In laws I.H3P, nnrl r-o'cimi roar,
Ever 0:1 without a slicrc."
Certain it was that they had heard
it, had boen baptized witii some drops
of its potent brine, and that thoughts
and speculations disturbed their minds,
which would never have entered hers;
that things which to her formed the
.mr-imt'm bonum of existence, caused
them no pang by their absence. While
she was always knienting their want of
money, their, absence uf "chances,"
they cried out that they had no work;
nothing to do. She wauled them to
be married; they wished to have employment. The difference of aim aud
opinion was a deep and radical one; it
marked ai profound dissimilarity in
the mental constitutions of mother and
daughters; it was a constant jar, and
a breach which threatened to grow
wider.
She knew that this morning Judith
and Delphine would havo a weighty
confabulation upon certain points that
would not bo submitted to hor; that
aspects of the; Irkford visit would bo
described nnd dwelt upon, of whicli
■he would never hear anything. She
accused her girls in her own mind of
reserve and secretiveness, oblivious uf
the fact that she never gave an opinion
upon their aspirations iu the matter of
work, save to condemn them.
Mrs. Conisbrough watched them as
they left the house, and wont up the
atreet toward tha lull in whose recesses
High Gill was hidden—throe as lovely,
lissom figures as a mother's'heart could
wish to see. Sho heaved a deep sigh.
Her comely countenance looked clouded and downcast; and she shook hor
head. ■
"God forgive mo! sho thought within herself; "sometimes I really wish
he was dead, and all safe! Once in possession we should be right, I know. It
ii all absolutely hilj and he can leave
it as absolutely to us. No one could
set aside any will that he chose to
make. Besides, anything else, after all
thia ttme, and after all that he has
promised, would bo ao hideously unnatural." ,
She went to her seat by the fire, and
to a graat basket Of houwhold linen,
•very article of which required repair,
for all the ihings at .Yoresett House,!
had been in use for many years, and
nobody in the establishment had much
money wherewith to buy new ones.-
The morning droned on, and she sat
undisturbed in the breakfast parlor,
whose windows looked, not upon the
market-place, but to the back, over a
delightful garden in which stood the
big apple-tree beneath whicli Mr.
Danesdale's dog had sat and watched
Mrs. Conisbrough's cat; and beyond
that, to delicious-looking, rounded,
green hills, like those which form the
back-ground of some of Mr. Burne
Jones' pictures. There wero autumn
woods, too, to be seen- a blaze of
scarlet and gold, from which the mist
had now completely cleared away.
Deep in one of these woods was High
Gill, the favorite resort of the girls.
They loved to pass a summer afternoon
or an autumn morning there, listening
to the lulling roar of tho water, and
watching tho rainbows mado by tho
spray.
Profound silence reigned throughout
the old house, till ut last there came
the sound of horses' hoofs along the
street outside—hoofs whicli paused before hor dour.
"It must be Uncle John, I suppose,"
she thought, and vory soon afterward,
lie walked into the room, saluting her
with the words:
"Well, Marion, good day!"
"Good morning, uncle! How good
of y.m  to come and see me so booh!
Sit down, and have a glass of wine."
No, thank you.   I won't trouble
! your over-generous hospitality," said
the old   man, and his smile, as he
spok*!, was a sinister one, bearing a
great resemblance to Bernard's most
malevolent grimace.   His rugged eyebrows came down in a kind of penthouse over his eyes, effectually concealing  their expression, save when
they caught the light, and then there
was that in them whicli was not tho
lambent glow of benevolence.
The old squire, as Aglionby wns called iu those parts, was not famed for
the sweetness of his temper, nor for
its certainty. Mrs. Conisbrough had
experienced, ere now, specimens of
the defectiveness of this temper; but
though the men of the Aglionby racb
were not famed for the ingratiating
amiability of their manners, she
thought she had never seen her uncle
look so un coin promisingly vindictive
as he did now. She utisliked, too, the
suave and mellifluous accents in which
■he spoke, and whieh belied the expression iu his eyes.
"Well, at least sit down and rest,"
she urged him. "The girls have all
gone out for a walk."
"Oh, have they? I hope Judith's
safe return satisfied your maternal
anxiety."
"I was not anxious about hor, so
long aa I knew she was with you. She
looked wonderfully brightened up by
the little change. It was t>o kind of you
»o take hor!"
"Humph! If it doesn't make her
discontented with the-home-coming."
"Oh, well-regulated minds "
"Like yours, Marion. I know how
admirably you were brought up. Aud
T am sure you have brought up your
girls ns well as ever you were brought
up yourself. They are truthful I think.
Thoy ought to be, wiili a parson for
their father, and such a good woman
for their mother. I am sure you have
taught them the sinfulness of telling
lies, haven't you, now ?"
"Lies "
"Yes, lies. I always call them what
they are. 'Falsehoods,' 'untruths'—
such rubbish; lies is the word for
them, and lies I call them."
"Really, uncle," she said, wiili a
nervous laugh, "one would think yon
wero accusing me of telling untruths."
Mrs. Conisbrough's tongue seemed to
refuse to form tho rougher word. ,
"The last tiling in the world, my
dear, that I should think of. I was
just saying that ynu were so well
taught the wickedness of tolling.lies,
that you would be sure to bring up
your daughters with a great respect
for the truth. And then, having yourself been a parson's wife—you look
surprised, my dear," ho added blandly.
"It was your remark about well-regulated minds, and a humdrum life,
wliich sent my thoughts upon this task.
I am sure you have taught your
daughters the necessity and beauty of
truthfulnest*, the most indispensable uf
moral virtue's, I should call it."
"Ha, ha.!'' he burst out, and thero
was something so absolutely malignant
in the tone of his laugh, that Mrs.
Conisbrough looked at him, vaguely
alarmed. "Vou never spoke a truer
word, my dear. A bud way, indeed—
a very bad way. All sorts of relations
would be getting wrong with one another, and all sorts of injustice would
reign r;u ti punt. Did you rend the
Ticliborne case, when every one was
interested in it I"
"No—I never read newspapers."
"That's a pity. There are so many
interesting 1 iLtie scraps in them, such
ns ladies like. Iu tlie first place, of
course, there are births, marriages,
ami deaths, uud thou, for us men, the
political news, and the lending nrticles
—you women don't care about sunh
thing., ef course. Hut there are all
kinds of bits of gossip that women do
care for—such as long-lost sons turning up again, nud nll that kind of thing,
That Ticliborne caso was the case of a
man who called himself tho rightful
heir, you know."
"Yes, I think—-of course I heard a
great deal about it, though I didn't
read it. But you see wo only have a
newspaper onco a week," sho faltered,
turning pale, and pressing her hands
against her heart..
He was remorseless.
"It is just iu the weekly papers that
they cull together the choicest morsels
of that kind," he said smiling unpleasantly. "You consult your paper next
Saturday, and I'll warrant you'll find
little bits that will interest ynu,"
He rose, nnd gimped his lint as if to
go; held out his tyind, and when she
nervously "placed her own within it,
clutched it in a grip of iron, so that
her rings cut into her flush, and staring
into her face, with intent eyes, which
seemed to flame with auger, said in a
rough harsh voice:
"Last Saturday afternoon I Baw my
grandson. Last Saturday evening I
saw my grandson again. Yesterday
morning I found him and had a long
conversation with hiin, and told him
who I was." ]
