Onr Governor-Gcncral.
The Marquis of Lorne and liis
royal wife have left Canada for tlieir
island home. When it was known
thut the imperial government had
appointed the queen's son-in-law
governor-general of Canuda, there
were serious doubts i'i many iniiids
respecting the propriety of the selection. The people of. Canada aro
thoroughly loyal to the mother
queen, but thoy have too keen a
sense of their own freedom and independence to permit themselves to ho
made the lackeys of royalty. It
was feared that the royal princess,
the daughter of a very dignified
queen, would bring to this rew land
customs and ideas repugnant to our
unprotentiouB etiquette. It was
hinted that the marquis had had no
experience as an adum»slVnTor, nud
that his appointment laid been made
not on the ground of jie-'soriil fitneuj
but becdi'se be hud mim-ied the
queen's daughter. , It whs moored
that a royal court wb»ld be established at Ottawa, and thnt cone who
lacked the requisite ai*ees«ors or the
proper costume would be allowed to
enter the- royal presence. The gov-
ernor ami tlie prlfcess Imve come end
gone, and it is gratifying to know
none of theso calamities, havo happened during tho period of their ad
ministration, It may be true that
embarrassments have arisen with respect to uiatlers of etiquette. Rumors of tliis kind have frequently
found their way into .1 portion of
the press, and some thirgs hnve
been said which, if true, do noi) re-
Beet credit upon tbe good taste of
the Princess Louise. But those
things may rot It true. .Indeed,
they are probably false, .ard the te-
atilt of the failure of shoddy aristocrats to thrust themselves ir«o p-uces
where Lhey did rot bilorg. In the
absence of nil proof tu the contrary
we prefer to believe that the princess conducted he. self und hor household with the utmost propriety during her residence in Cumuli-. ' And
this iB Baying a great deal. The
court of Great Britain is a poor
school in which to educate gv's for
Canadian socitty. Wo an rot ftLh*

manners are simple tu d onr 'ire!*"*
aior.s modeife, hut' Cr.' r.d'.* 1 are hy
no meni"3 iVHiuua :»" yaoCi h fedi' ;/.
But of court inanrevs we fo-'lo'-otely
know little. Tbis country is not
old enough or rich enough to si rut
about with royal airs; and if it
were both eld nnd lich we aro not
sum that it would become better, ov
hap ier, or move prosperous by tho
possession of an etiquette more elaborate and costly than that which
now prevails. The adve»t 0* a p'fn-
cesB has not perceptibly distuvbed
our customs. So far ns we bow
the Marquis of Lome and his royal
wife hnve assumed ro air.s of Bi>-.en-
ority. Thoy have heo*i dlgrifif*1,
bat courteous and kind, But what
is of more roi'F.cquence to ua as a
nation, tbo gorei-nor has mr.mlW-.od
■ always an earnest desire to promote
tho welfare of the coin-try he wr.T
Bent to "Ovim-ii. Ai'd his efforts i'i
this direction hnvo been hoth luirllr
gent and miccefv-iiVI. By his tot'gro
and his pen he has i>;com;il'sbeil a

Gigantic Railroad Scheme.
Sah Francisco, Oct. 30;—Articles
of incorporation of the U. S. Oeutrnl
Railway with a capital of §75,000,000
wna filed to-day in Denver, Col The
head business offices will bo in this
city.   The road will bo, when com-
Eleted, said Chief En»inoor Col. Lyman
iridges, to an associated preaB,ropre-
suntntivo, tho most important event to
the people cf California sinco the Central Pacific was oponod. Among the
shareholders aro W. W. WaUwivPreat-
dent of the St. 'Louis and Hanilml
Railroad; John Sharp, President uf
tho Utah Central; Richard King, <>f
tho National Bank of Commerce, N.
Y.; Jno. L. Beverodgo ox-Govorpor
of Illinois; John O. Short, Proaidont
of tho American Insurance Co., N, Y.;
D. E. Garrison and Alva Mansur, of
St. Louis; E, Randall and A. Cooper,
of Deliver; ll. P. McDc-nald, Jr.,
president of tha Pacific Bunk; A. L.
Bancroft, M. D. Kelly, Charles Kohler,
A. D, Sharon ot San Francisco, nnd
other prominent business men and
capitalists of this coast and tlie Enst.
The company is a consolidation of tho
San Francisco & Ocean Shore, California Central & Denvor, Hot Springs &
Pacifio Railroad Companies. The road
will be standard gauge, aud will run
from San Francisco to Donvor, via
Santa Cruz, crossing tho Southern Pacific at Minturn, through tho foothills
of Fresno and Mariposa to tho Big
Trees and the YoBomitu, over tho
Sierras at tlio hoad waters of the Sun
Joaquin Rivor, tapping tiio oastern
slope at Caudolarb, Belleville. Benton,
Aurora and othor mining camps, toot
the Columbus Bora:; Meadows to Crystal Springs, Nevada. From there a
branch lino will be run south to a
junction with tho Atlantic and Pacific.
Continuing on from Crystal Springs
tho main lino will go to Iron Spring3,
Utah, from where a second branch will
bo built to Milford, the sontliorn terminus of the Utah Central, making
connection with the Union Pacific,
From Milford tho road runs in an
easterly direction via Hall's Ferry and
Morrison to Denver. It is already
located 800 miles cast from San Francisco, and 200 miles west from Denver
and will, when completed, bo the short-
est nnd ovor the easiest giades botween
tbe two cities. The terminus in this
city will bo on the north beach; nnd
should there be nothing to prevent an
entrance to this city, it ia expected
that this road will prove a furmidnblo
competitor to tho Central Pacific. If
the City authorities refuse to givo the
company a franchise, thoy are prepared
to purchase a right of way, tho determination being to avoid if possiblo nil
necessity uf crossing the bay. It ia
proposed tu commence work at bolh
ends and push on tho construction ns
rapidly as men and money enn do it.
What Inlldem * Docs Not Do.
Tho following extract from tho St.
Louis Christiitn Adcocaii is an able
answer to IngersolIiBm, and -ho .arguments of his infidel followers:—"Has
infidelity ever raked a man or woman
from tho haunts of vice, and made liis
or hor lite clean 1 Has it ever taken a
drunkard from tlio gutter, the gambler
from his cards, tho fallen from a lifo
of shame? Has it over found a man
coarse and brutal in character and life,
nnd made him a kind husband mid
faithful father? Has it ever gone out
into the heathen lands, and found a
peoplo ignorant and bnrbamiiis, do*
lighting in rapine and murder, and by
the power of its teachings lift thom out
of their degradation until tboy ndopted
the customs uf civilized nations f h
there in nll tho history of infidelity a
story of its moral triumph.* Unit w i'i
match tho regeneration of tlie Fiji
Islands under the labors of' the Wos-
leyau missionaries? Has it added anything to .the sum of human happiness- ?
Does it bring ouo ray of comfort into
tho chamber of death, filling tin- soul
of tho dying with peace, nnd tlio lier.r.a
of weeping friends with hope ? Tho ro-
Hgion of Jeans Christ hr.s dono r.ll
theso things. Tho treo is known by lis
fruits."

An Early Session.
It will be seen by reference to
an advertisement elsewhere that tho
provincial legislature is called together for despatch of business on
the 3rd of noxt month. This action
, is taken, we presume, mainly to
submit tho settlement bill in its
amended form and have it passed
through tbe house early onough to
admit of its reaching Ottawa when
tbe House of Commons meets.
There are other advantages in an
early session. It will sot at rest
forever some questions which appear
to bo disturbing tbe minds of some
people in tbe province. It will also
give members a much better opportunity of going to and from tlie
capital, and it will give tbe local
legislature a chance to have its
wishes more promptly laid before
the federal parliament.

To • morrow will be observed

Bet apart for such a purpose by the
national government is most becoming, Canada recognises in her laws
and government tho existence of a
Supreme Being who is ruler of tho
universe. However widely we may
differ from ench other with respect
to forms of government and church
discipline, it may be said that as a
nation wo all believe in one God.
The present year has been one of
groat prosperity and expansion over
the whole Dominion. We have
been protected from national calamities, whilo our interests have been
Steadily advancing. British Columbia has abundant reason to bo grateful for the mercies of tbe year. It
■ has been one of unusual prosperity
to tbis province. Our population
may be set down as less than 50,000,
and it would not be too much to say
that in solid wealth each individual
has gained at least $200 during the
year, whioh would add $10,000,000
to the wealth of the province. If
it be true that Providence presides
over tbe destinies of 'individuals
and nations, it is proper that national thanksgiving should bo made for
national blessings. And while we
return hearty thanks to tho Giver of
all good, let us nob bo unmindful of
the duties wo owe to the poor and
unfortunate. Tomorrow sbould bo
a day in Which the poor shall be
specially remembered. If Providence bas given us wealth and happiness and contentment, there comes
with these things nn. obligation
from which we cannot honestly es-
cape. It should bo a pleasure as
well as a duty to assist those who
have been unfortunate, and heaven
smiles upon every act .of disinter
ested charity. We bopo to-morrow

ADMISSION 26 Cents
—FOR-
chlnese Exclusion.
The Sau Francisco Bulletin writes
most gloomy things about the practical working of the Chinese exclusion act    It says the net is virtually
a   dead   letter, and   th.it thore
danger of a worse Chineso invasion
than ever.     The act aimed chiefly
at the exclusion of the lower classes
of Chinamen.   Its object was not
so much to keep the celestials out of
America   as  to   prevent the keen
competition    which   was   bringing
ruin to tbo American working man.
The bill, therefore, permitted  the
immigration of merchants and traders who brought with them a certificate   from the Chinese government.   This is the loophole through
which the crafty sons of the flowery
kingdom seek to thrust themselves.
For  some   timo   past hundreds of
thom   have   been arriving at Sau
Francisco for the purpose of staying.
The revenue officers pounced upon
them with the utmost self assurance,
but   the   celestials  blandly shoved
under the   official nose certificates
under tho great seal of China 1   It
is alleged  that theso certificates are
a fraud, and that the Cbiuese government   are a party to it.   It is
broadly asserted that hundreds of
men who came with traders' certtfi
cates belong to the lowest class of
Chinese paupers, and that many of
thein are nothing but slaves sent
out by the masters whose property
thoy are.   .These fellows aro dressed
up in a new garment and provided
with a certificate at the expense of
their owners in China.     As soon as
they have passed the inspection of
the  Sau   Francisco customs their
new clothes are taken off and they
enter tbe labor market of California.   Thia is all contrary to both
the letter aud spirit of tho exclusion
act; but there seems to be no present remedy for the deception.   A
Chinaman is not easily identified,
and for ways that are dark he is
very pecuMar.   It is most difficult
to provo that a man is not a tvador,
and it it not oat>y to fly in tbe face
of a properly executed certificate.
The gravity of the situation is quite
alarming.      It would   seem   that
Chinese trickery is likely to prove
more thau a match for American
intelligence.    The Bulletin recommends that the customs officials refuse  to permit any Chinaman to
land and justify this refusal on tho
ground that the China govornmont
have connived at a fraud and broken
treaty faith.     In tbe present embarrassed condition of  China this
might be the easiest, if not the most
honorable, way out of the difficulty.

Anstrallau Annexation.
It seems that the grand annexation policy of Australia is not to he
accomplished nfter ull.   The Australians went to work without consulting   the   British   government,
they supposed that if by any quiot
means the annexation could be done
before serious complications arose,
nobody would tako the trouble to
interfere.   When tbe matter came
under the notice of the imperial government a protest was issued.   But
the people of Australia kept right
on with tho matter in hand.   Possibly they supposed that Great Britain entered the protest as a kind of
official duty, but did not mean it.
Late advices would seem to indicate
that in this they were mistaken,
A London telegram says that the
colonial secretary, Lord Derby, has
written a letter to the chiof promo,
ter of the Now Guinea Exploration
and Colonisation Company, emphatically protesting against further encroachments upon tbe rights of the
inhabitants of that   island.     He
calls attention to tho fact that the
ministry  has on several occasions
condemned the project of annexing
any ot the South Pacific islands to
Australia, or in any manner assuming to establish oontrol over any of
these islands at variance with their
present system of government.   In
some   ot   these,  particularly   tho
Island of Samoa, German, British
nnd American Consuls have at times
exercised their influence, jointly or
separately, and treaties exist which
practically grant to certain of these
islands tbe rights of  independent
states.   Therefore, if General Mc

much valuable information concerning
the area, resources and industries of
tho various provinces and states. That

Okaxauax, Oct. 26.—The land boom
attains moro vigor day by day; when
and how it will terminate is not
known. During ono woek, lately,
over 7,000 acres were taken between
purchase, application and preemption
at Mr. Lambly's oflico. In a year, or
two at outside, none will remain in the
government's hands, should the present rato continue. Intending purchasers will do well to look about ere it be
too late. There aro looming up two
great drawbacks to the interests and
development of tho Spallumcheen and
Okanagan valleys, viz., tho improvement of the channel of Spallumcheen
river to Shuswnp lake and the building
of a wagon road from Belvedero to
connect with tho 0. P. R. at Shick-
mouse narrows. In the present state
the steamers cannot ascend the river
during low wator in the fall. Tliis can
bo surmounted by constructing wing-
dams of codar piles, whicli would throw
the water into a narrower and deeper
channel. Freight both ways is thus
dolnyod ovory fall for weekB.and sometimes months, a grievance that can be
overcome by nn outlay of less than
95,000. A petition to the Dominion
government praying for tho improvement is being discussed. The wagon
road is an absolute necessity as there
is no winter outlet to tho railroad.
The expense of building it would bo
trifling, the distance not exceeding 15
miles, and the route lies along the level
valley of the river, in many places not
even a tree to obstruct. Now. is the
time to Bee to it, so that an appropriation mny appear in the estimates and
the road completed next season. Until
suoh road is built Spallumcheen and
the whole Okanagan valley is doomed
to their annual dormant season, whieh
they now enjoy, extending from tho
closing till the opening of navigation.
Whon opened the heavy teaming now
done in the busy summer can then be
carried easier and cheaper on sleighs.
The local sawmill is doing a rushing
business in rough and dressed lumber.
Too much praise cannot he bestowed
on Mr. Post ill's energy. He contem
plates soon to add a flour mill; success
to his enterprise. Altogether, this
haa beon n very satisfactory season
from a commercial point of viow. Cattle havo raised over 50 per cent., hogs
about 25 per cent,, aud grain about
50 per cent. Such an increase iB very
inspiring and many anticipate a proportional advance next season. Tho
settlements, too, have received ft vory
material increase to their populations,
a noteworthy feature being the arrival
of both married and single ladies.
There ia room and a lioarly welcome
for many more. Tho latest arrivals
are Miss Geniu, a sister of. Mrs. Christian at the mission, aud Miss Haack,
niuce of Mr. Herman Wickers of Spnl-
lumcheon. On tho 10th Oct. wns tho
first frost thut formed ice, and on the
11th a shower of snow reminded the
residents towards the northorn ond of
tho valloy of the approach of winter; it
fall in rain nt the mission. Tho wen-
ther has boon very fair sinco. On tho

The str. Otter,' which arrived at Victoria on Saturday, reports dull times

Toronto, Oct. 17.—Tho poworful
rivalry that the alliance of tha Northern Pacific railway will offer to.certain
railways in Canada is becoming apparent. It is (a prominent Canadian
Pacifio railway official informs your
correspondent) forming an alliance
with the Grand Trunk, which road hns
an independent line to Chicago, and
the official in question said he had no
doubt the rivalry would be carried on
to Ontario, and to ths uttermost mile
of the Canadian Pacific. Tho Canadian
Pacifio, having by its peculiar charter
managed to keep the Grand Trunk out
of Northwest Canada, the former have
now made arrangements with the
Northern Paoifio whioh will hurt the
interests of tho Canadian Pacific. The
Northern Pacific in conjunction with
the Grand Trunk, is looking to the
New York and West Shore for a New
York outlot, and it is more than possible that the Air Line division of the
old Great Western, now a comparatively useless section of the Grand Trunk,
will bo utilized by the West Shore,
Delaware & Lackawanna to roach Detroit, and make connections with the
Northern Pacific stoamars for Duluth.
The Grand Trunk is talking of building a line to Dututh to facilitate the
dispatch of business with the Northern
Pacifio. and also with a view of getting
the Canadian Northwest in time by
that route. They claim tho charter of
tho Canadian Pacific will hnvo to be
altered in time and tho monopoly of
the northwest thoy now enjoy bo
broken, as with tho increasing settlement of tho country thore will be
ample business for two linos there,
and, indeed, as many American and

'A Romau Catholic's Letter.
Editor Columbian.—You have a
crowd of correspondents in the interior
ready to supply you with the latest
news; but thoy require to be trained.
They ought to know that truth is not
always news; and that what in not
truth is nonsense or something worso.
These are foots that ought to be stated
plainly to rural newspaper correspondents who cannot be trustod to draw
on their imaginations for material to
illustrate reports.
In your issue of tho 31st ult, there
iB a letter written hy your correspondent at Hope, who seems to be a mixture of mirth and malice. He sneers
at tho Roman Catholic missionaries
nnd insinuates that "they collect largo
sums ob tithes from tho Indians and go
away with well filled sacks." Your
correspondent knows as well as I know
that the money imposed ns fines on
Indians for whiskey drinking is used
for the benefit of the Indians themselves; in repairing their churches and
assisting their poor. And he knows
thnt the lifo of a Roman Catholic
miB&ionary in the interior of this provinco is described by men of the world
as a life of misery. Well filled sacks,
indeed! I never saw their sacks full
of anything but lice. Thoy travel
through the country on the mission of
charity, packed like mules with blankets and pans. And theso aro the men
your worthy correspondent refers to
as "money gatherers." I will not say
that he is a bigot or a fool; ho tries to
be amusing, and may bo wholly ignorant of the subject to which he refers.
A modern village newspaper correspondent would think it a good joke to
write a letter from the moon and say
it was "like Sumas well stocked willi
ducks and geese." Your correspondent permits n portion of the truth to
escape from his prejudice. In his let-
tor to yon ho snys "tho result of the
visit of tho Ronum Catholic fathers
has been n surprise uud a satisfaction
to oroditors who keep stores." Old
dobts duo by Indians written off as
"bad" have been discharged, and this
unexpected good luck is connected
with tho visit of the Rov, Fathers.
Your correspondent may not be a
bad fellow after all. If he will make
enquiry amongst his Protestant friends
ho mny learn to respect the Bolf-sacri-
ficin* missionaries of the Roman Catholic church. One of the first Protestant missionaries who tried his hand
at converting the natives iu this proviuce had a wife, a very amiable lady,
nnd alio loved him dearly. Ho went
out ou the mossago of charity. Ho
waB back in two months covorod with
lice. Tho good lady wns really afraid
of tho flock her pastor hnd taken
limno nnd she would not let him in
with thom. Ho had to go away und
return to heHna new suit.
Tho life of n missionary among tho
Indians is a life of misery and those
who endure so much for the lovo of
God ought to be let alone. A gentleman would not laugh nt misery, and
the man of feeling who can think
must respect thu mnn who volunteers
to he miserable for tho lovo of God.
I nm a Roman Catholic, but I subscribe for your paper.. I know it is
the Methodist church organ, but you
aro not a bigot or a fool, and you
seem disposed to givo nll men fair
play. Therefore I wish to boo tho
Columbian enjoying an increased circulation. -A Real Old Roman.
[The Columbian is certainly no
more the organ of tho Methodist
church thnn it is of any othor church.
We behove in tho utmost liberty of
conscience, and wo are always prepared
to aid, impartially and vigorously, HU
churches that are engaged in tho defense and dissemination of pure morality and religion.-—Ed.]

Touonto, Nov. 1. — OoiiBiderabla
speculation 1ms buuu ciiusud here by
thu report that the Ciumilu Pucifio railway syndicate hns discontinued the
road on Rocky Mountain section of
their line and discliarfjod 4,000 labor-
era, Only a week nijo Maimer Van
Home, of the Canadian Pacific, confidently ppoke of the completion of tho
road in two years' time. A. correspondent interviewed Hon. Alexander Mackenzie, one of the original directora.
He Baid he did not think the Canadian
Pacilic would abandon the building of
their line through the Bookies fur twu
yean. Ho said they hnd recently put
a large force of men ou the ensterti
section from the river Nipigon tu thu
Plnue rivur, north of Lake Superior,
and if they had decided to abandon
work they would hardly continue it nt
the eastern und. Hu hnd intended to
build this line through the Yollowstono
Pais in the Rooky Mountains, but tho
Canadian Pacifio had decided to try
Kicking Hone Pass, some (ono hundred and) fifty milos further south,
The Maple Ridge rases.
KniTon Columbia v.—In an editorial'
on magistrates' courts in yuur papor
you stated that it wan under a by-law
regulating the liquur traffic that the
action against Mr. Isaao waa brought.
Seo. 81 of the Municipality Act, 1881,
says that tho lleevo shall be a Justice
of the Peaco nud shall have jurisdiction over all mimici'ml ninttehi'. Was
tho violation of that by-law not a municipal matter 1 And Seo. 80 snys ull
fines and penalties collected under or
by virtuo of uny by-law, whether collected by any municipal oflicer, Justices of tho Peace or general polico,
shall bo paid over to tho treasurer.
Some tiinu ago several Cinnamon were
taken from Maplo Ridgo to New Westminster nnd heavily fined for selling
liquor, nml opium .without n license,
not a cent of which fine wns paid to
the municipal treasurer, and I supposo
Mr. Isaac's fine wilt go the samo way.
A littlo informal ion on the above subjects will greatly oblige yours respect
fully, H.Ktl.Y, RllHlE llATBPAYElt.      ,
[In. tho article referred to by our
correspondent the reasons why the
Isaao case could nut bo tried before a
Maple Ridge bunch woro clearly stated. Thu reeve was a witness in the
case and could not, therefore, sit on
the bunch, With regard to the fines,
they should undoubtedly go into thu
municipal treasury, and we presume
thoy will bo handed over to tho trea-
NEWS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Lisbon, Oct. 20.—Tho mail steamer
from tho Congo River nrrived to-day.
By lior it is learned thnt tho nrrival in
tho Congo country of Sir Frederick
GoldsiU'd on tho lSth September created n sensation thoro. In answer to
enquiries Sir Frederick statod that tho
object of his journey was to examine
tho work already'doue, but if any difficulties occurred rendering aclion on
thu part of tho English Government
desirable he would endeavour to obtain
it. It is reported that M. Do Brazza,
the French explorer, has arrived at
Stanley Pool without sufficient appliances to onable him to proceed furtlu-i
up tho Congo River. M. Do Brazza
will probably meet Stanley when thu
lattor returns from' Stanley Foils. It
is expected that tho greetings between
the two rival explorers will bo-cordial.
Washington, Oct. 30. — Delegate
Singheizerof Idaho arrived this morning nnd will not roturii home until
after the adjournment of Congress. He
reports thnt Idaho is rapidly iucrcntuiig

that of Mormoiidom, threo counties iu
the Territory being under tlieir domination. Each year showed tho evil
increasing. Tho people of tho East hnd
no idea of tho power of thia evil, and
from observation he folt sure, if thoy
needed, tlioy could muster 100,000

remedy ugainst the encroachmentu of

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
Ab wo passed along the old familiar
streets, something impelled me to lean
out of sight and touch Dudley with
trembling hand, till the mournful im-
fmlse passed, and I could raise my eyes
rom Rill's golden ourls, and answer
Dudley's bright Bweet smile as he
whispered—   ■
"Courage, Nell, we aro neanng
home." ,  ,
The aspect of the country ^ had
changed flince wo left; the cornfields,
then proudly waving with riponing
ears ready to harvest, and gay with
poppies nnd blue cornflowers, were
now nothing but stubbly fields, with
tho fallen leaves lying damply honped
up in the ditches; with here nnd there
an ungleaned Btalk rotting in the
mold.
The churoh-ynrd trees woro bare,
gave for the firs and cypresses that
guarded the still whito tombs, and the
horse's hoofs trod crisply on the yellow and crimson leaves that atrewed
the path and road; now and then ono
fluttered redly in at tho window and
pelted our faces softly, as we leaned
out to catch the firat glimpse of home.
As wo turnod the corner by tho par-
sonage and camo in sight of tho grass
lane, there was a waving of straw bats,
nnd a joyous pealing of boyish huzzas
from the stile; and then tho carriage
■tops; some one wrestles furiously
with the fastening, till the door is
jerked open, and Halcot plunges in
head foremost, to treat mo to his
roughest and most loving hug, and
Charlie followed with his shy girl's
kisses.
"What, is the grand new rule in
vogue?" says Dudley, laughing, as
Halcot half bashfully extends his
hand;'"I think 1 muBt-transgress for
once;" and his lips touoh the hoy's
brow lightly. Then three pairs of
hands help me over tho stilo; nnd
while Charlie and Seymour linger behind with Dudley, Halcot,t with his
arm tight round my waist, impels roe
furiously along the sunny lane, talking
so fast all tho while, that words trip
•-one over tho other, nnd I have not
had the slightest notion of what he
is saying. I am trying vaguoly to
find a olew to what lie ia telling me
about running, and scores, and long-
stop, and somebody bowled out, when
he turns—and at the same moment
somebody takes hold of me and
brushes my cheek with a soft mus
tache, and I look up half laughing
into Bruce's handsome face, while he
holds mo out at arm's-length more
fully to survey mo,
"Welcome home, old Nell; how we
have missed you, io bo sure! why,
what u sunburnt little gypsy, and
looking quite protty too," and he
smiles down at me with kind pleasant
eyes, that remind me somehow of
Charlie's. I havo never in my life
Been Bruce half bo demonstrative, but
I release myself at last, for I see
Loo's dear beautiful face in the doorway, and in another moment she has
clasped me in her arms.
When at lost I Bit down in my low
chair by the garden window, I can
hardly believe it is only two months'
absence; only two months, yet how
changed ths- dear old drawing-room
looks to me; how narrow, how low,
how shabby even, with its faded chintz
and heavy paneling, and then, as if
ashamed of the unconscious thought,
I praise the bouquet that Louie lias
so tastefully arranged iu my own particular vase and kiss the bright face
that bends over me. Five minutes
later and I would not exchange it for
Hurst Hall and all its grandeur; for
Loo is kneeling by me holding my
--loves and chattering saucily, and
ieymour has my cloak, Halcot is pulling at my bonnet-strings, while Charlie, red in tho face and breathing
hard, is tugging ruthlessly nt my boots,
under a mistaken impression that they
are goloshes. I can scarcely Bee them
all now for the tears that dim my eyes,
and make but poor answers to Bruce's
gay bantering remarks, seeing which
Loo proposes my adjourning up-stairs
to my own room and making a quiet,
toilette, which is not to be done apparently, for they all swarm up after
me and peep out of odd doors and
passages, while I turn the handle
rather listlessly, if truth be told, for
I have a lingering remembrance of
my rosebud room.
"Loo, Loo, what does this mean?"
What does it mean indeed! this
pretty new room with its delicately
stenciled green paper, and moss carpet, fresh dimity hangings, and new
chintz coverings, I look up at the
ceiling, but its snowy surface gives me
no olew, or the protty dressing-table
with its vase of light chrysanthemum*,
or the mantle-piece cleared of its antique rubbish, with a benut-ful bust
of Purita in tho centre; and then I
look at Loo, but she shakes her ruddy
head unconcernedly and contemplates
herself in the glass with an air of great
serenity.
"Loo, Loo," I cry, flying to her nnd
squeezing the fair fresh face between
my hands, "this is your doing; let me
thank you, though it is but poorly
enough, my dear, for this pretty, glad
surprise. How you all spoil me, and
you, my precious sister, as much as
any."
She patted mo affectionately on the
shoulder, "There, there, I am pleased
you like it, but it is Bruce's doing as
well as mine; he is equally indebted
to your thanks;" nnd following her
eyes I became aware of a shadow on
the'threshold, and a face peeping slyly
round the corner, and in a moment
had my arms around his neck.
"I aay, don't strangle me, my good
child, don't; what are you up to? oh,
myeoUarl"
Then as I released him, "If she has
not taken all the starch out, and it is
my favorite ono, too;" but for all that
the corners of his mouth were going
' delightedly. "Now, what's all this
excitement about?"
"Oh, Bruce, you dear good follow!"
"Well, I'm sure I don't object, but
why these affectionate tunna! oh, keep
off, do," and he waved his hands
helplessly.
"He pretends ignorance, Nellie, but
he has done as much as I."
"Fie, what a story-teller you are,
Loo; you know you bought tho carpet and the chintz."
"Yes, but all tho rest is yours. Ho
came and helped me choose everything,
and used to sit and read to me while
nurse and I worked; you can't imag-
ine what a kind thoughtful boy he has
been."
Bruce teemed to think those additional praises bo fraught with danger
te hit penon&l appearance, that he
retreated backwards, sparring all the
while, till he feneed himself in with a
towel horse, where he felt his collar
and remained naulve.
"We have long thought that it waa
a shame your having the shabbiest
room hi the house;   why, Dudley's
hi
and Bruce's aro much better; and as
to, mine, I always thought I ought to
make it over to you, especially since
aunt's legacy enabled me to furnish it
so'hansomely. So," continued Loo,
"wo could not bear your coming back
to sueh a poky little place after visiting at such a grand house ob Hurst
Hall must be; so Bruce was generous,
and we just set to work with a will
and got it ull dono lost night. I've
not boon able to attend to thoso nursery arrangements, Nellie."
"Never mind, thero ia plenty of
time; Mrs. Graham does not come till
Thursday.
"Who is thin Mrs. Graham, Nellie,
that you are always writing about?"
asked Bruce; but Louie would not let
him enter on that subject, and by
dint of much coaxing, got him out of
tho room, while I rested nnd refreshed
myself, so that I wob better fitted to
meet the merry party down-Btairs; for
it wob a merry party as far as the boys
wero concerned, whatever the others
felt. It seemed to bo tacitly agreed
among ourselves that each should bear
his and her burden as cheerfully as
might bo, and though Louie Baw me
shiver slightly as I passed the oloaed-
up room, sho only drew me on quicker,
and no one noticed Dudley s brief
gravity when he took the placo that
had not yet become familiar to him.
I was not allowod to ait at tho tea-
tray, but had the guest-choir between
Dudloy and Bruce, with the threo
happy boys' facoB opposito, and Loo's
smiling eyes peeping- round tho urn,
Scarcely had we seated ourselves, and
tho decorous grace been chanted by
Charlie in a singsong voice, with a
loud Amen from Rill, followed by a
clamorous demand for jam, than Halcot burst violently into the subjoct he
had commenoed in the lane.
"My dear boy," I cried, interrupting the incessant "I Bays" and "he
Bays," "I can't understand what you
are talking about. Who was bowled
out, and when?"
"Why, Damon, to bo Bure," re-
plied Bruce, mischievously; don't you
know his Pythias Ib head of the school,
Double-first, Dux, Monitor, whatever
you call it."
Seymour's face lighted up with an
ingenuous blush.
"Yes, indeed; Louie told me tho
grand newB, but I forgot for the moment to congratulate you; I ain very
glad, Seymour, dear, very, vory glad,
though you havo left our poor Halcot
bo far behind."
"No, indeed," exclaimed the boy,
eagerly; "lie's top of his class, and
haB cot a history prize." *
"History, indeed!" cried Halcot; a
precious lot to compare with your
Greek and Latin prizes, to be sure;
not that I grudge you them, Seymour;
of course you -got thom; overy one
knows you are heaps cleverer than I."
"I'm a year older," said Seymour;
who looked quite uncomfortable at his
friend's humble avowal of inferiority,
"I'm Bure you would work twice as
well if yeu were only more ambitious."
"Nevor mind, Seymour," laughed
Bruce; "you've bowled him out in
prizes, and he's scored you up at innings. Nellie again looks mystified;
I rofer to the grand cricket match between Dr. Merton's boyB and the
Grammar School; Halcot made the
greatest number of innings, and Seymour only five—so you see our Hal
beats him hollow at cricket "
"And at every other game too. Fta
no match for him there;" and It was
evident from Seymour's bright looks
that this sense of inferiority was very
palatable to him.
At this point of tho argument Halcot suddenly became violently red,
and exchanged meaning glances with
his friend.
"Now's your time," whispered Seymour, and Halcot, clearing his throat
and gulping down something, broke
out with—
"I say, Dudley, I have been thinking a good deal about it, and I've mndo
up my mind that I want to go to sea."
"Want what?" asked Dudley, aghast,
rousing himself from a reverie.
"I want to bo a sailor," aaid Halcot, decidedly. "I'm aure it's the life
I'm suited for, and I hope, Dudley,
that you will please to let me."
Louie uttered an incredulous exclamation, and Bruce elevated his
eyebrows ironically, while both the
boys grew hot as fire.
"Oome here to me, my boy."
Halcot obeyed readily, and Dudley
put his two hands kindly on his shoulders, and thoughtfully scrutinized the
bonnie sunburnt face beforo him, the
old tired look coming back aa he did
'This is a grave proposition, Hal,
and so suddenly started as to almost tako
ray breath away. Come, now, tell
me as quietly and clearly as you can,
what are your reasons for supposing
youraelf fitted for a Bailor's life?—
quietly, mind, so that I can understand you,"
Thus adjured, Halcot commenced,
but the flurry of h:u mind communicated itself to hiB words, which tripped
up each other in long unfinished sentences, so breathlessly delivered, that
Bruco put his hands up to his ears,
and Dudley signed a piteous protest
for silence.
"My dear boy, I can't make out a
word of what you're saying; we shall
never get to understand each other at
this rate. Steady, Hal; tell me honestly, whom have you been consorting
with, or what books of wonderful
adventure haro you been reading
lately, so as to make you enamored
of the hardships and dangers of a
seafaring lifo?"
Said Halcot stoutly, "It is not the
books bo much, Dudley, ns that I feel
I'm just out out for a sailor."
"Nevertheless," returned Iub brother, smilinir, "I will trouble yeu for
their titles. Come, Hal, you are always frank with me; tell me what you
have been rending since I went away,
in the holiday time, you know."
Halcot reluctantly complied, naming
as he did so several of Captain Mar-
ryat'e, Cooper's, and Mayne Heid's,
and aa tho memories of his favorite
authors rose beforo him, he cried enthusiastically, "Oh, Dudley, I can't
bear the idea of being shut up in a little place like this all my life; I should
like to see tho foreign lands and wonderful sights these men talk about;
fancy 'being among tho icebergs, or
seeing the Aurora Borealis, or the
Southern Cross, and all the great
creatures that live in the sen, and the
water-spout, and the "
"I aee—I see, Halcot; love of ad-
venture tho firat potent reason; now
for tho second."
"Don't you think that a good one,
then, Dudley?"
"A thoroughly boyish one, peculiar
to most lads of your age; now for the
next motive."
Halcot, however, commenced fumbling with the buttons of his waistcoat,
and appeared confused,
