Romance oJ'(he Present.
(From Commerce & Indus.' .-ies or tlie Pacific Const.)
*'fot htm who enn turn away occasionally from ihe narrow surroundings
of his personality and locality, and
climb to the towering pinnacles of his-
. to-vital observation, for a comprehen-
_ aive view of the past career andpressut
'activity of our race—for him, we live
in an age  and a land of romance
abounding in events thrilling aa any in
the glorious period of ihe Athenian
, annals, and more marvelous than the
triu np'hs of »anii in Arabian fiction.
Our const, in thia very year of 18S2, is
accomplishin*j   wonders   beyond  the
wildest dreams of an-iqaiiy.   Never,
until roceu.'.ly, did the globe witness
such swift and ^rand chan^ca as are
now ocourring about us.   Never did
maul, ind elsewhere advance with gt*e«*.t-
, er speed.   Never did progress achieve
'triumph more glorious.  Never did the
learning, er.pcrionco, nud woal.h accumulated elsewhero for ceiiiuries. rush

. iroiisures of n hi^h e>ili^hieniue.ii\ a
vtat   rtt^toii,   previously   unoccupied,
save My savages.   Never was nn iava-
sion more po.tee.nl, or more beniSwnt.
Never was a conquest more oompleia
'.or moro pernmiictft.  What other hnds
have spent a thousaud years in accnni-
'■plishing is liere done in a generation.
We havo appropriated all the nivs cf'
oilier lands aud added tunny of our
1 own.   No scheme is too diilicult fur us
'to undertake.   The. forces of nature
.submit at our first eObrt.   We scarcely
,'ouild a shanty in the Sierra Nevada,'
beforo the placers oiler us their 'rea
suros.    Our   horticulturists sop.rcely
t plant a vine, or a treo before they aro
'rewarded with an unexampled wealth
I of orchard and vineyard.   The Prat
. American t attempt to mino for silver
1 leads to the revolution of the Comstock
lode.   Tho land and sen, the mountains and valleys, tho rarest and rivers,
compete with otto another i*i demanding riur acceptance of tlieir priiie*,,
.Cities and states rise before us as if by
ranchantment.   After a few weeks of
^observation and thought,  by pioneer
lettlers and engineers, in the midst of
solitude, the channels of trade nnd
.he contor of wealth ore fixed for cen-
iuries to como.  Half a dozen railroads
arch across a continent-at once. The
anadiati PKcifio, Northern Pacific, tho
!entrul Pacific, the Denver FociGo, the
t Ian tic and Pacific, tho Atchison*, To-
iqka and Snata Fe, the Southern Pa*
lific,   and  the Oregon "Railway and
'aviL.ai.ion Co., are engaged iu a nice
uch as the world never saw in the
>t, km will perhaps never see in tho
ture.   We are in ihe livtJat of their
y'e&i, works.   They till the earth and
ir whh marvels.   These corporations
re si .*u■;»!.! .)■{ for i*:e trade of empires;
id the cIBr'x of the conflict; is rabidly
proadiing.   He who can see no romance in such a contest, he who can
t  see  romance  in  anything save
uurU and camps, blood and •.'eel, is
wi alien to the spirit of ihe n-je, and is
liable to understand either the past
present.   Whether ho can see it or
lot, the teat remains the same, thnt
nviliution having taken possession of
fiorea in perpetuity, is rapidly de-
JblopW here an imperial "power, which
lithot aspiring to a separate natiounlf-
, will inevitably exert a grand inllu
hco on ine commerce and industry of
■mote ages. ■ We live in the prosont
nd in anticipation of the future'; the
1st is of little value', save as to pro
Ire us for what iii to come. The main
Ji ment in lifo is toil, and success in it
lone of the highest satisfactions and
Inefaetions.   As a base of solf-reli-
3 and self respect, the vanity, based

I, IVarson k Col's—Adv.
Recent "finds" nro thought to throw
a new light on tho history of the Swiss
lake-dwellers. Among tho objects
found are a wheel with an iron rim,
iron Bwords aud many human bones.
The size of the .rose-bush at Hildea-
heim, Hanover, believed to be more
than a thousand years old, was erroneously stated. Its height is about
thirty-eight feet, and its branches
extend to a width of about thirty-four
feet.
Mensuremente.liy Hcrron Hammer
and Holland of the movement of a
largo glacier in North Greenland show
its progress at the middle to be about
fifty feet in twenty-four hours, the
rato boing apparently about the same
in winter as in summer.
M. frame has tested the preservative properly of hydrocyanic acid,
with the„rosult of finding the bodies
of animals poisoned with it to successfully resist decay, for a year, although
at times e:.posed to a best of one hundred decrees Fahrenheit.
The velocity of the', wind is much
greater at high altitudes than on the
earth, due probably to the resistance
of the uneven surface -.of, the .earth.
Part of a recent balloon trip across the
English Channel by Mr. Simmons was
accomplished at the rate of 130 miles
an hour.
It is stated that in tho volcanic
districts of Italy an unusually high
barometer is ■rejjsrtled as an indication
of tho approach of an earthquake. If
this belief fo shown by scientific investigation to hv well-founded a now field
of usefulness will be opened to the
weather service ju countries liable lo
violent enrthqunlies.
. Tho "abundance of remains of tlio
mammoth in tSjVria is remarkable.
From the fact that at leant a hundred
pnirs of tusks are annually put upon
the market, Nordoiiskiold infers that
during .tho time that has elapsed sinco
the conquest of Siberia useful tusks
from more, than 20,000 of these animals have been collected.
Observations by Herr Pern ter show
.that the sun shone at Vienna last year
1070. 3 hours out of a possible 4472
hours, nr only thirty-seven per cont.
During the winter thegrontast duration
of sun-shine was at mid-day, but in
the summer it was in the forenoon;
iu the winter there was more sunshine
in the afternoon than in the forenoon.
The'cloarest montli was July and the
cloudiest was October, The observations were made by means of the
Campbell-Stokes   sunshine  recorder.
"Oxygenized wnter," or hydrogen
dioxide is attracting attention in
various ways, a cheap process fur
manufacturing it having boen announced. This substance is an oily
liquid, having a bitter taste, and differing from water in composition only
in containing twice aB much oxygen.
It is a powerful oxidizing agent, aud
is the only bleaching substance known
which docs not injure textile fabrics.
Attempts havu been made tu utilize it
on a large scale for bleaching purposes.
but tho difficulty of preparing it has
mado it so expensive tliat it has boen
but little known. If it can bo mado
cheaply it will doubtless bo applied
to many purposes. Messrs. Bert and
Begnard have suggested its use in
treating wounds, as it possesses ab-
vaittages over carbolic acid in tho
absence of danger of poisoning and
freedom from bait smell.
Three kinds of li;ht are produced
during thunder-storms, and known ns
forked lightutng, sheet lightning, and
ball lightning, Mr. B. G. Jenkins,
F. It. A. S., contends that only the
first of these is true electricity^—
thunder-storms, according to his view,
being manifestations of chemical rather
than electrical energy. He believes
that hydrogen exists in tlie earth's
upper atmosphere and under certain
conditions is drawn into the mixture
of nitrogen and oxygen about us, tho
clteiriieal union of the hydrogen nnd
,6x*i'gen causing the Second form .of
lighUiing, which appears to bo almost
wholly flame among the clouds, and is
the form most frequently seen. The
thunder is not no much the noise of
electric discharge as the report of gas
explosions. Ball lightning is prol-n-ld";'
not electricity, but gas in intense
ignition. The harmlessucnta of the
last two seems to indicate their nonelectric character.
Tho invonto,r of the "fusing disc,"
Mr, Jacob Reese, is credited wiijh
having expressed the belief that [tit
were possible to produce a flame-less
combustion tho intensity and quantity
of heat obtained from a given amount
of fuel would be vory greatly increased
thereby. Mr. Thomas Fletcher* of
Warrington, England, lias succeeded
in producing a combustion without
tlamo, and lately gave nt Owens College a striking practical illustration of
the new .theory. He directed tlm
fljinie of a simple gas blowpipe upon n
throe-inch ball of iron wire for a few
seconds .and then blew out the flame,
Tho boat rapidly increased ami the
iron quickly, melted and ran into drops.
He even succeeded in fusing refractory
fire-clay, the intensity of neat being
much greater than over before obtained
with,tho fuel mod. Evfttiju tho dark
the burning of tho gns was shown to
ho entirely, invisible. .It appears thnt
flnuio really Indicates an Imperfect
oombustioii.
The indications of the npproaehbig season seem to threaten nil umistial.amount
of the various forms of bowel complaints.

An Important Work.
The report «f the secern! meeting
held nt Chilliwhack for tho purpose
of promoting 'n careful examination
of the ground with a view to dyking
ont the waters of the Fraser, will bo
found in another column. These re-
potts tend to show thnt the settlers
are systematically nnd earnestly pursuing the important work they have
set themselves, and, as far as they
go, they would appear to pointto'the
.practicability of the enterprise. Of
course before any "W6rk of thnt mng-
nitudo and importance is undertaken
'it will hs necessary te have a critical
'examination and report by a competent engineer; hut in the first instance such nn examination as is now
being made by the farmers themselves is most desirable. There is a
very general tendency to underrate
the value of such examinations by
non-professional men; but for our
part we are inclined 'to thirik that
tho opinion of a sensible, practical
farmer upon such a subject is often
quite'as valuable ns n scientific one-
It is, therefore, with no little interest
that we wutch the progress of the
examination nt the present time going on so methodically on tho bank
of tlio Fraser. Tho full importance
of reclaiming tho tens of thousands
of fertile acres'Bribject to-occasional
oveiflow on tho Lower Fraser is, we
feel persuaded, but very inadequately realized. Look at our wharves
crowded with hay and grain nnd
oven vegetables from California and
Oregon and Washington Territory,
and the consequent drain upon the
country's wealth. Were all the fertile lands on tlie Lower Fraser sc-
-euroil against overflow and available
for settlers, there would be no ne-
•cessity to import a pound of agricultural produce in order to supply the
demand in this part of the conutry.
Looking at the matter, therefore,
from a public, economic standpoint,
at is obviously of the very firat im
portanco that every available acre
should he put undor cultivation at
tho earliest possible moment. But
thero is another phaso of the subject
which ought not to be overlooked ol'
treated lightly. Many farmers have
lost nearly all their crops by this
year's floods. A goocHy number hnve
been driven £i<em their lioldiiigs in
hopeless despair. Some taveoeen
ruined! Now, apart from the broader
ground of public utility already adverted to, we contend that the state
owes a duty to tliese settlers—a duty
which no honest-hearted, just admin-
istration would desire to shirk. Of
'Course, to aid theso despairing and
ruined settlers to regain their feet
and overcome the crushing effects of
tho late floods would be to benefit
the state; but it would nlso possess
tbe merit of doing justice to the individual. It is clearly tlio duty of
tho Government, therefore, to be
prepared, the moment the farmers
shall havo completed their examination and report, to step in and cany
out what has been no well begun, so
that, if found practicable, the work
of dyking may be commenced at the
earliest pussiblo date, thereby aflbrd-
ing a reasonable assurance to the
settlers that their lands shall be no
more flooded. This done, the farmers
would bo encouraged and strength
ened and thus would tho losses and
despair occasioned by tho floods of
1882 soon bo overcome and forgot
ton. In taking up the work ns thoy
hnve done, the settlers lmvo shamed
the Government, and it would, indeed, bo n scandalous thing if the
Government did not promptlystep in
and do their part whon tho settlers
have so woll performed theirs.
Esqnimalt Election Contest.
A perusal of the published pro
ceodings in the abovo case must convince any one that the supreme object of the Executive is to gain time
—delay tho proceeding. It is alono
upon this hypothosis that tho objoo-
tion urgod on bohnlf of Mr. Holt
can be reconciled with reason and
common sense. It is objected that
Judgo Gray boing antagonistic to
tlio present Government, is not fit
to  sit on tlio  enso.    The Judge,
while indignantly repetting'lhe'linsd
imputation, expressed his willingness
to step aside and allow either the
Chief Justice or Mr. Justice Crease
to take his jrkvee. O, but they too
are prejudiced, '"firges Mr. Hett's
counsel. Mr. Justice McCreight is
the man wo want to try the case.
Mr. Gray points out the fact that
Mr. McCreight, being-at!:Gariboo, it
would necessarily involve a great
deal of time and expenso to scud a
•Judge all the way there to hold the
fall assizes and bring»Mr. McCreight
down "to try the ease at Viotoria;
but nevertheless 'lie 'WfmrM "consult
with his brother. Judges and sec if it
could be managed. Upon resuming
tlio proceedings on Friday, Mr. Gray
announced that the Chief Justice
flatly declined to put the Dominion
Govorumont to tho expense of carrying out any such arrangement, and
he-went on to characterize in no
mincing words tho extraordinary
position taken by the respondent,
whose own counsel distinctly disavowed any belief in the suggestion
that the Judges would not be initial. He (Judge Gray) said "he
did not believe tlie objection was valid,
and he believed it was made/or tlie
purpose of delay!". After pointing
out that such a courso would simply
amount to a denial of -justice he.
said, "I have spoken somewhat
strongly; but if 'the objection had
been urged before some of the
other Judges their language would
have been stronger and exceedingly
short!" Failing to secure delay by
an impudent imputation Upon "ihe
integrity of tho threo Judges the
next and equally frivolous objection
raised was us to the insufficiency of
the bonds. Now just imagine objecting to tlio insufficiency of bonds
for $2,000, given by Mr. Joseph
Spratt and Mr, Wm. Wilson, men
who could 'buy out the whole Cabinet and scarcely miss 'the money 1
Delay till Monday was, however, obtained ou that giound. When the
matter camo up on Monday, the security having beon pronounced sufficient, the -respondent raised another
frivolous objection, obviously for tho
purpose of gaining delay, nnd was
very severely rated by the Judge.
Delay till today was finally granted.
cannot be regarded 'as'a Melulandcr;
and last, but not least, a man who,

The Executive Scheme Exposed.
Tn the Jiglit of the above facts unil
indications it is not difficult to see
through the Executive scheme. It
is hoped that by delaying proceedings which they must know will
eventuate in unseating Mr. Hett, on
the one hand, and by hurrying up
the Hew Westminster and Yalo elections, on the other, thore will still
be three Minisi.oi'8,so-called, to havg.

the spring, with tho forlorn hope of
meanwhile picking up another apos
lato. But tho engineer is likely to
be "hoist on bis-own petard." It is
hardly to be expected that the Royal City will commit tho suicidal act
of endorsing tho apostasy and identifying iisolf with a so called Government which cannot possibly possess
tho confidence of the country, more
particularly the Mainland part of it.
And as for Yale, it is little short of
a libel upon the peoplo to suppose
that they aro going to pick up a thrice
rejected political "dead-beat" and cloct
him over the bead of good men of
thoir own! Yale, like Now Westminster, wants no divided representation. Three representatives working in harmony constitute a power
wliich will compel justice to the District. Three divided would simply
amount to practical disfranchisement. "A house divided against
itself cannot stand."

As will appear from a communication iu another column, it will be

on tho distinct understanding that if
he succeeded in getting elected for

Wo have to thank Mr. Judkins,

fine stereoscopic views of the iiiost

is especially uood. So far as we are

A I'seful Book.
Of lhe many books that have been
published about the Pacific const, how
very few have been of a really useful
and readable character. It too frequently happens that the main object
is' to secure the price of the advertisements with which they abound, und
the so-called "useful information" is
men worthless padding, thrown together with as little regard to accuracy
'as "to diction. In refreshing -contrast
to soine of- these so-called "cyclopoa-
dias''_'is the work before us. It is a
quarto volume of 820 pages, full bound
and 'embellished with excellent engravings, and is entitled "The Commerce and Industries of the Pacific
.Coast." 'It is edited by Mr. John H.
Hittell, a gentleman of wide experience nnd an author of merit, from
data carefully collated by Mr. John,
Donovan, a gentleman eminently fitted
for the work and who has visited the
different localities. The character of
the composition may be judged by nn
extract which will be found iu 1111(10101'
column. This work omhraces. thu Province of British Coliiiii+'iu to which,
indeed, a very prominent placo is con*
ceded, and among the illustrations arc
found -etigravings of pin-cos,, edifices,"
steitbiers, machinery and other objects
of interest in this country. - It also
contains copious notices of, leading
firms, manufactures und 'enterprises,
giving prominence due to our fishery interests, for which a great fiJtiire is predicted. The present volume is tin advance'copy, subject to revision with it
laudable view to attaining tlie greatest
possible accurac*y, nnd Mr. Donovan, is,
now in this countryjor- t^.e'piirpose'of
promoting that object. • Mr. .Bancroft,

A Lame Exciisc.
The following difth*guo, whioh took
place tne othor day, will show viitk
what huno excuses tho political apostate hopes tVgtoss over his recent dis-.
reputable eonduct:—
CUttfi.it:—How can you excuso yimr
conduct in desoi'ting your colons oiul
joiuing a Goveniriient you so. iitiWigly
condemned ?
A ilotfatc:—Tf I had not joined the
"Befiven (iovcrnment it would nave broken up, and tho Opposition would have
formed one, giving one portfolio to a
MaiuIaiHlei'attd.imptiTer to Mr. A. IG. 13.
]>avie, who is a Victorian; ami thus
ttiere.would bo ouly one Mainland(tr in
the MiMatry,
Citizen:—Well, how much bettor is
tho Mainland off now?
Ajioxtate.:—I, a MahilandeV, am hi it,
and we ace going to create a fourth portfolio, which is to ho given to another
Muinlander; and thus the Cabinet Mill
bu evenly divided "Cictween the two sections.
Now, we are in a position to make a
statement which will expose the weakness of the above lino of argument.
The programme of the Opposition is'
as follows: Four portfolios—two to bo
given to Mninlandcrs and ono to Mr.
A. E. B. Davie, who represents a
Mainland constituency, aud who is
just as much a Mainlauder as Mr.
Walkem was. Tho remaining portfolio to bo given to a Vancouver Island member. It will lie seen ,af a
glance that tho Government forced
by the Opposition would be very much
more Mainland than the one foreshadowed by the apostate. It would be
composed of three members from the
continent and one from the island who
is 'thoroughly with tho MnVlttnd on
the principal questions, such as dock
uud representation: whereas the
other would at n\t*rt taft give two
seats to the Manila nd, while tlie other
two would be lioid by relations and
Victorians who are bitterly opposed to
the Mainland on dock and, represent-,
a tion. *3o fur* . therefore, frouj this;
act 'of apoaiacy tem'ting to increase the
influence of this section in the Executive, its tendency would be very decidedly (iii tho opposite direction. It
woulcj bo to perpetuate Victoria domination in a moro objectionable form
than evor. It will \)o for New Westminstor to say by her votes on Monday whicli she will prefer: "^1 Vic.
toria Ministry ami the representation
of the Lower Fraser divided; or a
Mainland Ministry and her representation united !
A Heavy Mot.
Mr. Pavid Blain, a gcntloman of
wealth and ii*fluenco ut Toronto, and
for many years a prominent member
'of the Libqrfil -party, has a four column
'letter in, the Mail, iu which he tr/ies
forlMr. lilake "".vithout gloves,'1 charging upon hiin iho .future of. the party
in the elections of 1878 bud 1882. Mr.
Blain takes tlm position that Mr.
Mackenzie is the true herd"ti flfo party
and still possesses its confidence and
even affection, and that the party-
would still bo in power had not Mr.
Blake first Weakened it and then
usurped the loadorshipi It must bo
admitted that Mr. Blain has succeeded
in placing Mr. Blake in anything but
an attractive light before tho country.
At anyrato thb fetter.is -"'nuts" for the
Mail, which refers to itatgroatletigth.
Wo make room for the following extract:—
Mr. Blake's desertion of the Grit
party, as pointed out by Mi'. Blain, becomes a much more disagreeable thing
when sketched by a less "friendly hand.'
Mr. Blake woulfl* possibly havo Ifked"
to shirk responsibility in 18*?4, but liis
ambition was stronger than his caution,
and stronger ""even than his pledges of
a few days before; ho yielded to "his
friends," and became a Minister. But
he abandoned them on the first occasion thereafter; and only accepted offico again when ho was able to boast
that^ lie had 'forced Mr. Maokemtie to'
ro-ftkc a sacrifice of his Pacific railway
policy, and after he had intrigued
against tho Carnarvon terms, to which
Mv. Mackenzie's honor as a man and a
Minister was pledged. During the
whole course of Mr. Mackenzie's Government Mr. Blake was ono of its
weaknesses;--. He had sneered at it iu
1874 as ft Reform party with nothing
to reform; ho deserted it a short time
after ho took ofiiee; lie tried to sully
Mr. Mackenzie's lienor in the matter
of (he Carnarvon terms; ho turned tail
in the most contemptible manner ou
Lliu Letcllier matter; and after thus
aiding ' to destroy Mr. Mackenzie's
Government, he succeeded in overturning that genileman, on the ground
that ho liad ''failed.1' He first undermined the building, and then procured
tho discharge of the master-mason on
the ground that the work was bad!

also tho iSot wc""£ht of the gold;
In explanation of the abovo wo desire
to say that the old "plan of charging for

"A. M. Watch Co., Woltliam, Mass.,

fmaranlco certificates, signed B. E. Rob-
iins,, .treasurer. The name "Waltham"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of cither distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our cases
arc frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements bf other makers and vied versa,
,thus affecting injuriously tho performance of the watches, and' vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by wt. It is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to be a public scandal
that there is great, fraud ia the metal
quality of both jifold and silver cases as
now generally sold. AW have-demonstrated by frequent assays that ufariy
gold and silver eases offered in the market aro debased from 10 to 20 per cent,

This is a fraud upon the purchaser, and
accounts for the low price at whieh such
cased watches have boon sold.—American YVatuii Company, Waltham, Mass.

(Continued.)
Ono moment," lie said, with forced
calm, tho nightmare vision growing
evory moment moro vivid and moro
horrible, of Job queenly Judith becoming, as hu had said, "a servant amongst
servants:" and later exposed to nil the
horrors and till the dangers of life iu a
great hospital. It did moro than wring
his heart; it sot his brain ou tiro, so
that ho felt scarce masU-r-of liimsidf.
"Ono moment! You forced me to
take a tono which I am suftieionlly
ashamed of, but what clso is loft me I
After all I have done in lhe hope of
pleasing you—whieh in itself is nothing, would bo too paltry to'meniion—
but after my sacrifices to please you,
suroly you will not bo ungenerous
enough to refuse this little favor to
mo? It is but a small thing to ask—
for you to wait just a Utile while till
something else is found—something,
'if'you will wear -iho yoke, of a more ,
human, less crushing hind than this.
Now, you cannoi! refuse me tli's."
In Aglionby's voice was entreaty
"of the tunderesb and most persuasive
"nature
"You ask i ni possibilities—you do
not know what you say. I must go
through with it," said Judith, a sob in
her voice, her heart like melted wax
within her.
A sltort pause.
"But I cannot endure everything,"
'thou said Aglionby, with constraint.
"There aro things which no man with
a man's spirit can brook, and one of
thein is to see a woman whom he lo—,
whom he rovcrences as I reverence
you, turned into a boast of burden, a
servant, a drudge, while he stands by, I
without having moved heaven and I
earth to prevent it. But there is no
need for me to do that. You must remember that hitherto I have submitLcd
to your will, and respected your pro-
'ferbitious. This, however, passes human
endurance. You cannot prevent* me
from seeing Mi*3. Conisbrough, and
trying whether sho is equally hard and
impltiuablo as her daughter. I do not
believe it, fur my part. I do not believe
sho will treat me as you have dono.
Site will not resent and be angry fur-
ever, arid if you persist—;—"
Judith turned cold and fault on she
hoard theso words. The possibility of
his proceeding to this extremity had
neyov occurred io ber, sirr.ple and natural tfcmv,-h it was. It must not bo
done. Bhe herself found it almost impossible io withstand ihe torrent ol
Aglionby's will. Her mother would
succumb fo it at once, and then iho
shame, and tho intolerable degradation
which would result! .
"Mr. Aglionby, you must not
mamma!" she almost panted.   ,rYou
promised me—oh, you must not break
your promise!"
"Am I to promise every thing, arid
you nothing? All I ask is that you will
yield to mo a littlo. I must seo Mrs.
Gonisbrougb. -I believe I have-been
very wrong iu not doing so before.
After all, sbo is tbo bond of her own
■houso. She, and not her child, pos-
. sesses tho authority to decide whether- "
"Mr. Aglionby — Bernard — oh.
please, for the love of beaven, do not
do this, unless you wish to hill mo!"
silo cried, suddenly clinging with both
hands to his arm, and standing quito
still again in iho darkness.
A'glioiiby felt a thrill of jny so keen
aa to be agony, as he felt tho clas*p of
hor hands upon liis arm, and heard the
beseeching accents of her voice. It
was very dark; ho could barely discern
the dark outline of her figure closo "be-
8i,do him, but ho opuld hoar hor voice,
broken and deep, imploring him wiih
passion and with tho accents in which,
not hatred, but love, entreats a boon.
These notes woro not in iho sweetest
of all love's Leys, but they wore iu one
of love's keys—(he only one in which
he might hear her voice address him.
It was bettor than silence—he could
•not forego the delight of it yet. Let
her plead! since neither ho nor she
might rejoice.
"/ wish to kill you!" he retorted
breathlessly. "That is a cruel taunt
indeed. What have I boen doing, but
trying to prevent your killing yourself
by inches—on tombing yourself! You
are obstinate, I perceive; but from
your voice 1 gather that your mother
will not be so. I shall see her and ask
her to be reconciled with me."
"Bernard, dear Bernard! I implore
you—I implore you!"
Hor voice broke. She was .dill
clinging to his arm, trembling violently, as he perceived. Tho chill January
night air had become as balmy to him
as'scented southern gales. The profound Bky, thu watching stars, the
stillness, the voice ringing in his ears,
intoxicated him. He took her hands;
he folded -his arm about her, and said-,
and his voice, too, was broken:
"My child, I believe I can rofuso
you nothing, though you should break
my heart! What is this thing you implore V
"Tbe freedom tu do what gives me
the least pain iu my wretched life. Bo
not «poak to my mothor! He generous
—you are generous. Can you not trust
mo? Can you not credit me with having good reason for what I do ? Somo
day, perhaps, I can tell you; somo day
■when we arc old--if I am so unhappy
ns to live io bo old. And when I tell
you, you will any I was—T was right."
She sobbed uncontrollably. Aglionby could not speak. Sho tried to turn
away. From old habit she would havo
shed hor tears, borne her grief alone
and unsupported, but lie would not let
her. Bocauso henceforth (hoy were to
be parted, through this crisis he would
support hor—in it ho would console
her; and his clasped his arm yot moro
closoly about her; while sho, feeling
little savo that ho had yielded, rested
her racked and throbbing forehead
upon his shoulder, and wept tours that
wore not altogether thoso of bitterness.
Ho raised his hand at last' and
stroked her cheek with it as one would
stroke (ho cheek of a grieved child.
She raised herself and stood upright.
"You have the best of all things—
strength,"she said; "as you are strong,
so you will bo generous, 1 know," and
carried tho hand which find taken hers
to her lips.
"And tho roward of this genorosily
—ia it (ho same which poor virtue
gets ?" he nsked almost in a whisper.
"What reward can a poor wretch
like liiie'give you? What can I do, except worship you with all my heart,
and think yoU the first of men,-as long
as 1 livo V
Aglionby was silent, though his
heart was on firo. Every fibre of his
naturo was appealed to—his love—and
bis'wild desire to keep her his, as woll
as his chivalry and generosity. Ho
said nothing, if ho had spoken, it must
have been to call hor "bis heart's do-
light, and toll her that ho could never
let hor go again. In silence he conquered, and came through tho ordeal
honest—but not unscathed. It was
ono of tho furnaces seven times heated,
which yet aro prepared for men and
wobicn to pass through; but from
which the airjels aro gone who once
attended to see that those who suffered
camo through unhurt. Tho crowd is
greater and moro ribald; freer than
over to hoot and jeer at a stumble or a
faltering step; the flumes are eager, as
of yore, to lick up thoso who retreat.
Somo como through, fire-brandod for
the rest of their days; but, such is the
mystery of anguish, purified too,
cleansed as prosperity aud success never cleanse their children.
*ltJo presently drew Judith's arm
through his own, and in silence they
pursued thoir way. She was ul'orly
exhausted by the war of emotions
which had shaken her, aud could scarce
put one foot before the other. They
met hardly a soul, but walked on along
the lonesome country roads like creatures in a dream-world; almost as much
alono too, until they arrived in Yoresett, as if the rest of tho universe had
been struck dead around them. Ho
accompanied her to he mother's door,
and they paused on the stops. The
flickering light hanging from the market-cross opposite fell upon both faces,
showing them with moderate clearness,
the ono to the othor. Both wero pale
and changed. He stood a step or two
lower than she did, and took hor
hand.
"Have I satisfied you ?" bo asked,
in a low voice. "Tell me tho truth;
remember, it has to last mo all iny life.
Are you satisfied with me ?"
"Perfectly, utterly, and entirely.
Can you find any words to express
moro than'perfectly?' If so, (hey express my satisfaction. But not ono
ousts to express my gratitude fo you."
"In the time thill: is coming for mc,
I shall sillier," he said. "Vou will not
bo alono iii that: my sufferings will
seem hard, to mo. at least. Will you
promise i hat when yoii are attending
patients in hospital wards, aud feeling
compunction for their sufforinjjs—as I
know yuu will—will you thou think of
me*—alone, wherever I am, and who*
evor may be with trio, and remember
lhat 1 sutler from a disease aa hard to
euro as any of theirs, and givo a Hi Me
of your pity to me, .1 udii.li ?"
"Do not tisk me to piiy you. I shall
think of you daily-till I die'j but how
enn IpLyyni? Yonr.ro su strong, and
so far abovo mo. I could not pity you
nny more than I could pi-y my guardian angel."
"Well, I know that you will not forget me. Therefore 1 say, may yuur
path lie made smoother for you: and
faro you'"well I"
"God bless you I" was her sole response.
With a last long look at hor, from
eyes which were full of grief and full
of melancholy, he turned away. Judith pulled the boll, and was admitted
info ihe bouse.
Wiih avast effort sho composed herself so as to join her mothor and sisters
at tea, when sho told them what Mr.
Malleson had ottered her, and that sho
had accepted it; upon which information no comments wero passed. But
as soon as tho meal was over she went
to her own room, where cold, though
it wan, sho could be alone. There she
waa freo io begin tlie meditations
which should have beguiled hor homeward way. Fresh elements made themselves felt in her calculations; -new factor appeared in he sum of events.
Was it a victory sho had gained, or
was it a dclivoranco through unbounded generosity ' The last, the last, sho
told herself, with tears (if joy which
streamed down her faco in the darkness She had fought her fight, and
had been conquered; she had measured
her will against that of Aglionbv, and
had very soon boon reduced to Tailing
on her knees and crying "Quarter!''
Had it lieon 'otherwise sho would not
have felt as she did now—would have
been destitute of tbat sensation of calm,
assured repose in a superior strength
which outweighs tbe feverish joys of a
hundred victories, to souls like hers,
at least.
Sho had an exceeding great roward
in the knowledge that not only was he
stronger than she was, but that ho was
also good, gentle, chivalrous. She was
calm, she was free from torturing accusations of conscience, Hor heart
was sadder and gladder too than it ever
had been beforo. Her path was yot
rough, her future sad, but she had
found ono who was strong and gener-
ous, hi«h-BomVl and pitiful; and this
ono had seen her too, and had found
in hor such harmony with his own soul
that hu loved hor. Their love was to
be discrowned; that, in (he exaltation
of this moment seemed to her as a
matter of small consequonoo, What
she know was so full and su satisfying.
Hor fears woro laid to rest. Ho also
had renounced, and she at last felt the
most entire confidence in his renunciation. Sho no longer needed to deny
oven to herself that sho iovod him, or
to blush guiltily when tho knowledge
of her love rushed upon and overwhelmed lior. There was now no sin
and no selfishness in hor love. Tho
great peace which follows on the accomplishment of a puro and holy sacrifice was hers; tho consolation which
Mr. Malleson had wished for hor sho
had received, and in her heart just
thon wns tho penco wliich pnsseth understanding.
