A few ^\iy^_igo:thoCobnist announced tlio failure of negotiations
for fotTfonsfcrnct'ibii of tlie Island
railwgy-ily ihrG. P. E. Syndicate—
a result broadly attributed to want
of business ability nnd a niggardly,
illiberal spirit manifested an the part
of the Walltem Administration. The
Standard, taking up the cudgels for
its masters, seeks to throw doubt
upon  the telegram announcing failure, denies the chargt uf niggardliness, makes a quasi admission  of
the fact that the Syndicate has finally declined to build the Island Hue,
declares that the mission of Mr. De-
Cosmos lias not proved a failure, as
the papers to be placed before Parliament will show, and throws itself
back on the dead and buried "Oar-
imrvon Terms,"—insisting, with ap
parent seriousness, that "reither Mr.
DeCostnos nor tho p**ovincial government bad anything to do with tlio
■ negotiators on the subject between
the Dominion Government and the
Ciinmlinri UuihvaySyitdiciUo." Road-
ing between the Hne3 of tlie Stan
dard's article,  the story of failure)
stands out only too clearly.    To assign niggardliness nnd incompetency
on the part of tlie provincial government and, their  plenipotentiary-extraordinary as the imiueilisstfi cause
of  failure liiay be  prwiimture,  nnd
possibly erroneous.    It must bo confessed, However, tliat tlie  inference
is not unnatural, seei **g these are the
conditions wliich have led to previous
failures.    It is known tliat the Syndicate were in earnest w.hen the negotiations werb'entered  upon; but
it is just possible that they exacted
too mnch—'moVe than law provincial
govenitnoitt would  have been justi-
lied in conceding, probably not in tlie
area of land deumvded, but hi the
[conditions;  upon which   these  hinds
were Bought to ha held; and it is
Jonly fair to the gove'".iment to r«-
Iserve judgment on this point until
[the  facts have been ascertained be-
fyond doubt. Tlie Ministers and their
Agent    are,    therefore,   remanded.
[There" are, however, some features of
hhe subject fai''lv open for discussion,
neat)while,   The Colonist of Tuert
[lay contains a leading article and a
Bom nut mention containing matter deserving of   attention.    Taking  tlie
■omninrication  first, wo find an attempt  made to  buoy up the public

J fondly, in   consideration of   the
norinous mineral and forest wealth
f the lands in question.    The coal
itaauros between  Northwest   Bay
ud Cape Mudge, aro estimated to
■oduce an out-put which, yielding
nly 10 cents per ton profit, would
ivo   ?48D,000,000.     The   timber
etwwn   Nanaimo   and   Seymour
Harrows is estimated at 2,000,000,-'
~00 feet of  lumber, which, calcu-
ted at a profit of 50 cts. per thoti-
tnd, would yield another million
tllars.   Here, then, we have from
lose two sources alone an absolute
•ofit to any one who shall mine the
ial  and cut the timber, amounting
$481,000,000.   Having worked I

The development of thane vast resources, in the way calculated to do
the greatest  possible* good  to tlio
greatest possible numbtir, to confer
the greatest permanent benefit upon
the country, would appear to us to
constitute   the   great  desideratum,
and we confess uttertfinability to
perceive why the attainment of that'
object t»h ou Id  be less 'assured with
these resources in the hands of the
O. P. R. Syndicate than if they remained in the hands of the Government—assuming   itlwaj-iT that   tlie
grant would not be surrounded hy
any improper conditions or undue
exemptions, It is in the development
of these resources  that the country
must look for advantage; and it is
difficult to see how that advantago
could be any less if the workmen
wero   employed   and   paid by the
great Canadian  Syndicate than if
they were employed and  paid by
wealthy   shareholders   iu England.
Indeed, if there  were any  choice,
one- would naturally imagine it would
fall   to   the   Canadian   Syndicate,
hose interests  must "forever" be
identified with those of the country.
But the" writer in the Coltmid discovers u new dungcr. To give any
company a land grant ttxtoiidittg
above Niinnimo would be to run the
risk of the C. P. I!, finding a terminus at Albetui, thereby cutting
off the southern end of the Island.
\Vu are not certain that to keop the
land grant below Nnnaimo would
necessarily avert such a contingency,

which they insultingly refused even

of which would now be gladly accepted by the country, and it suggests that whatever federal help can

Bjieuk of the Island railway ns "the
missing link in overland communi-
cation" is to misapply language iu
itsolf   figurative.     "Overland  railway   communication"   is   complete
.•hen it reaches the Pacific ocoaii at
Burrard Inlet. There can then bo
no missing link. Aa regards the
suggestion of undertaking the Island
railway as a provincial work, there
is no room for the discussion of that
subject in the present article. We
will just remark, in conclusion
however, that such a proposition is
not nt all likely to meet with public
favor. Indeed, with the graving-
dock experiences and prospects be-
""      their eyes, we do  not believe
for
any proposition of the kind would
even be considered either by the
legislature or the country.

friends of the District, and we shall
briefly state the reasons which lead
us to that conclusion : The nomination is net down for the 16th inst.;
the polling (if any) for the 9th proximo, and the declaration for the 1,1th
proximo. Tho elected could not leave
before Wednesday, tho 15th March.
If lie waited for the direct steamer
to San Francisco ho would sail from
Esqnimalt on tlio 20th, and, with
fair winds and good luck, might reach
Ottawa in fourteen days, which would
bring it to tho 4th of April. If he
went via Portland and were fortunate enough to make the connections,
it might be possible to reach Ottawa
one or two days earlier; but at this
season, and during such a season,
travelling that way is precarious. It
will be seen, therefore, that, should
there be a contest, it would not bo
possible for the person who is elected
to reach tho Federal capital before
April, and in such event perhaps no
<lay would be more appropriate for
his arrival than the first of April!
The Dominion Parliament met on
Thursday last, and thero ia every
reason for believing that the session
will be a very short one. Indeed
from all the information to hand, we
should consider it extremely doubtful whether the session will last till
April. It must be tolerably clour,
in view of all the facts, that to elect
a member by acclamation is our only
chance of being represented at Ottawa during thjfj session, or any part
of it. Equally clear must it be that
those who would, under such circumstances, force on a contest, and thereby virtually disfranchise tho District,
can have small claim to be regarded
as its true friends. We do not think
there is any room for doubt as to
which of tho two would be elected,
in the event of a contest; but, admitting for the sake of argument
that there is, and giving Mr. McLennan the full benetit of that doubt,
we would ask what has ho to gain
from the result? He has it in his
power to disfranchise the District-
that is, assuming there can be found
twenty-five electors willing to make
themselves a party to bringing about
such a dire result by signing nomination papers, Tho issue is tin plainly
placed before the public, in order
that thoy may thoroughly understand
the probable consequences of certain
acts, nnd with the earnest hope that
nothing may be done towards causing
New Westminster to be left without
a representative in the Commons at
a time when she has interests of such
vital importance demanding attention.      	
Government Aid to Agricultural Societies.
A few days ago tlie Mayor, tho
ex-Mayor, aud ono of the Municipal Councillors of Victoria waited
upon the Finance Minster to ask
him to place upon tho Estimates a
sum in aid of the Provincial Agricultural Exhibition. The Committee, we are told, were courteously
received, and were assured that their
request would be laid beforo the
Executive. The Colonist has it
that the Minister consented to recommend a vote of 81000 to the Executive and the House. While yielding to nono in an earnest desire to
see the.true interests of agriculture
promoted, we nre disposed to question th» policy which seems to govern the proceedings at Victoria,
carried on under the assumed name
of a provincial association. It will
be reilieuibored that soon nftcr
Governor Cornwall's appointment lie
was waited upon by a deputation
from this so-called provincial society and requested to become its
patron. His Honor replied, in
effect, tlmt he would have much
pleasure in doing so, but only on
one condition, that the society should
be made provincial in reality as
well us in name—as well in its composition as by the holding of its
exhibitions alternately ou the Mainland. So far as we are aware, no
steps have been taken for carrying
out the very proper suggestion of the
Lieutenant-Governor. The society
is still provincial in little else than
name, and for its executive to talk
and act in the name of the province
can scarcely be justified, Certain it
is that, ou its present basis and under present management, it will not
meet with anything like general recognition on the Mainland as being
what ib assumes to be, a provincial
institution. Under these circumstances, it is difficult to see how it
can expect recognition and appropriations as a provincial agricultural society ut the hands of the Legislature.
There is no disposition on our part
to object to the society in question
receiving a grant as a local society ;
hut we wish to point out that, in
giving it a grant from the public
treasury, tlio Government must be
prepared to make like grants to similar organizations throughout the
country. If a Victoria agricultural
society, in the chief centre of population and commerce and wealth, is
entitled to receive material aid from
the Provincial Treasury, how much
moro are similar organizations far removed from these favorable conditions entitled to expect it. The aim
of the present article is not, therefore, to place any obstruction in the
way of aid being given to the Victoria society, although one cannot
help feeling that there bIiouUI be
wealth and will enough nt the capital to run such an institution without extraneous aid, but to point out
that it should bo distinctly understood in the outset that if the Victoria society is to be aided from the
Provincial Treasury, all similar organizations throughout the country
shall bo entitled to claim, as they
are quite certain to claim, Government aid.
Editorial Notes.
There ia too much ground for believing that Capt. DoLoilg, the gallant
commander of the Jeannette, has perished miserably in attempting to make
hi* way from the mouth of the weitern
channel of the L ia, where he landed,
to the mouth ot the eastern channel,
tho distance being 200 miles over
barren delta. Engineer Melville has
made dilligent search for his commander and found his castaway log
books and instruments.
Tho Colonist laments the failure of
the DeCosmos mission. Tho Standard
insists that it hasn't failed, It undoubtedly has failed in so far as its
ostensible object is concerned—the
Island railway. But it has not failed
in the only senso in which any sunn
person could possibly lmvo anticipated
success—that of giving Mr. Walkem's
master, tho "Nation-maker/1 another
trip to London and eight months' frco
living at tho expense of British Columbia. In that sense, and in that sense
only, it has been a success; so that
both the Colonist and the Standard are
right.
Miller's anti-Chinese bill, as reported
from the Committee on Foreign Relations, provides that from and after the
expiration of sixty days next after
the date of its enactment, and until
tho expiration of twenty years from
the same date, the coming of Chinese
laborers to the United States shall be
suspended. There would appear to
bo a probability of the bill passing
without any material change in this
its main provision. With such a measure in force in the neighboring republic, and nothing whatever in tho
nature of restriction here, is there no
danger of British Columbia being overrun by these poople?

Elsewhore will be found a communication well worthy the serious attention of parents. The author we
believe to be not only highly competent, but earnest and enthusiastic
in his profession, and it must be extremely discouraging to such an one
to find his work hindered and much
effort thrown away simply because
parents do not appear to take sufficient interest in the education of their
children to seo that they are regulnr
in their attendance at school. The
opponents of froo schools have urged
as Rn argument against them that the
tendency of having education for nothing is to make people undervalue it,
and those parents who will not take
the trouble to enforce regularity in
the attendance of their children are
doing much to give force and weight
to the objection. But the most serious
consideration to them Is that they are
permitting their offspring to negleot
the goldon opportunity, which, once
lost, can never be regained,

t Advanced. -— Tho people of Salt-
spring Island municipality tiro evidently a very ndranced community.
Acting upon the American principle of
''voting curly aud voting often" at
their January election, they not only
p tutted the ballot-box, but they appear
to have had something very much like
a "free light," in which the J. P. took
a prominent part. The matter came
up before a full bench of Magistrates
at Cotvichati, whon gross irregularities
werB proved and the J. P. lined for
assault.

The Vacant JutaMp.
The telegraphic announcement that
the vacant aoat on tho British Columbia Bench will not bo filled until the
close of the approaching session uf the
Legislature certainly looks ominous.
The two events have not necessarily
tho slightest connection, and to connect them is to suggest the possible appointment of the loader of
the Government to tho vacant position.
There are several reasons which led us
to think the elevation of the present
Attorney-General to the Bench improbable. In making appointments to the
Bench, Sir John Mncdoimld has always
risen higher than "party.'1 Even his
political enemies have to admit that
much. But Mr. Walkuiu cannot be
said to have the claim of party tu urge.
He has sueceoded iu giving the present
Dominion Government a great deal uf
annoyance—useless annoyance, and it
is known that his standing at Ottawa
is nono of tho bast, either as a politician or a jurist, He enjoys the unenviable reputation of being the author
I more bad laws than any other Attorney-General of any other province
—than all the Attorney-Generals of
oil the other provinces put together.
Thero is another consideration which
seems to increase tho improbability of
such an appointment being made, and
that is the extremely unhappy relations
subsisting between tho Attorney-General and the Judges. It would, indeed,
bo difficult to realize the possibility of
such a  phenomenon as the present
Attorney-General sitting on the Bench
along with tho threo Judges towards
whom ho has for years pursued a policy
of potty spite and malignant hate.
When, in addition to all theso considerations, it is borne in mind that Sir
John refused point blank to ofFei'jhim
a judgeship when tlie last appointments
were being made, it ia difficult to believe that such an appointment can
really be contemplated. Aside from
tho disqualifying circumstances adverted to, Mr. Walkem would, from his
position, undoubtedly" have the first
claim to tho appointment; and, could
wo think him qualified, wo should bo
sorry to seo any political obstacles
placed in his path to the Bench.
The All Slur Mlnstpels.
This Giant Minstrel Troupe, who
have been starring it iu the principal
cities and towns of the Pacific, and
who have been playing with vory great
success at Victoria, arrived hero last
evening, and gave a performance at
tho Drill Shed'Inst night. Thoy will
tjive another and final performance at
the sanio place to-night, and will he at
Granville on Monday night and at Nanaimo on Tuesday night. Tlio audience was large last night, but there
will be a bumper house to-night. The
"All Star Minstrels" are by far the
moat talented and entertaining of any
troupe that has ever visited these
parts, and those desirous of witnessing a really first class performance and
enjoying a good laugh would do well
to go to the Drill Shed to-night. Our
readers at Burrard Inlet will note that
the Minstrels perform at Granville on
Monday night only.
Morra.ui.Mi. Doomed!
Polygamy would really appear to be
doomed. Tho churches throughout
the United States have taken the matter up in earnest and tunas meeting;
are being held, thus forming public
sentiment into an active factor. The
hill agreed upon liy the Senate Jud
oiory Committee is a tolerably drastic
measure. It provides tliat the fact of
living in bigamous relations shall be
sufficient evidence for conviction, and
that in a prosecution for bigamy any
person drawn as a juryman may be challenged on this ground that he practices
or believes in polygamous religious
right, and certain now provisions are
introduced, debarring nil polygaiiiists
from tho privileges nf voting, service
on juries or holding ofiiee. But there
is an influential party in favor of a
much more sweeping measure—depriving the Territory of self government and placing it under military law.
Earth's True Inwardness.
The theory propounded sixty years
ago by Cn.pt. Syittmes, that thu earth
is a shell of one thousand miles thickness, open at both polos, is to a fair
way of being revived. A recent writer
on the subject points out the undoubted conclusion from exploration and
scientific research and observation,
that there exists at the north pole a
warm sea and tropical climate, where
the fuatheied trib.-.ii go to escape our
winters and from whence influences
otherwise inexplicable proceed. Itissug-
gested that this internal world, with its
northern gate of two thousand mile-- in
diameter, maybe a veritable paradise,
in which tlio lost tribes of Israel may
possibly bo found stowed comfortably
away in the enjoyment of perpetual
summer. Romance apart, there is
really much in tho theory deserving
attention, and it is to bo wished that
further and more systematic explorations may be carried to a successful
culmination.

Higher Light.
(OorroBponilfiiicoof.tHo British Culnmbian.)
It is cheering to note any progress
which is made in our province. Notable among the instances of enterprise on Burrard Inlet is tho introduction of tho electric light in tho mill
at Moodyville. Jts beams pierce the
darkness and shed their rays even
across the waters and fall on the opposite shore.
Mure cheering to those who wish
enduring prosperity aro the efforts
which havo been put. forth for tho religious and moral training of tlie children at Moodyvillo. On Sabbath I was
privileged to meet the scholars of tho
Sunday school for giving reward books,
Arc. Tho school is purely evangelistic
and non-sectarian. It has been in
operation since October, 1872. Hero,
amid many discouragements and surrounded by darkness, the Light of
Truth has shone ou the minds and
hearts of tho little ones and tho assurance uoines — Tlio'Vntrance of Thy
word givoth light." There are 30
scholars. During tho past quarter
they havo learned 1,(M5 texts of
scripture, making an average of 34
for each pupil. It must be borne iu
mind that nut of the 30 scholars 42
are in the infant class. We have
only time to notice those who had
the highest numbers, viz , Mary Cad-
wullader. Isabel Hodgson, and Ine/,
Smith (highest among girls), Louis
Springer, Howard Cotterell, Charles
Hodgson, and Charles Smith, who has
assisted in teaching. May these little
ones bo tho instruments to lead many
to the Light of the World. M.

Regularity.
Editor Columbian;--Allow me to
say a word to theso whom it may concern, in refereuco to a matter of vital
importance to the welfare of your
schools. Probably there is nothing of
more importance to you than tho education of ymir children, The success
or failure of your schools depends to a
great degree upon regularity of attendance. You may have active trustees,
suitable apparatus, aud earnest teachers, but failitro is a certainty if you do
not send your children regularly to
sclfooh   To send a boy otto ih\y aud
keep him at home tho next, or to send
him one week and let him go whore ho
pleases tho next, is the most approved
way of making him an ignoramus,
But this is hot all; you teach him n
bad habit of Bliiftloasness, of lack of
perseverance and steady application
to one thing. "A rolling stone gathers no moss, and no teacher can guarantee a proper education to the child
who is irregular, even though the most
favorable "conditions are furnished.
Another reason why each parent should
send his child regularly is that the
advancement and odueatiiui of the
other children of tho school should
not be retarded. In every school the
work is retarded very seriously by irregularity of iiHemttUice, and a largo
part of the teacher's time and labor is
thrown away. Where all are engaged
in a public enterprise each one should
labor to advance the interests of all,
and thereby his own interests. The
least one can do is to try not to injure
another; and IIuh is what each parent
docs not do when he keeps his child
at home without just cause. When
you keep your child at home you do
both him and tho teacher an injustice.
Ho loses his position in his class; and
tho teacher, if he is interested in his
scholars, is obliged tu review the work
which the absent one has missed.
Since coming to your city, I havo
had somo fuw cases of very Irregular
attendance, and the result is that the
boys know no more than thoy did
when I began to teach them. Who ia
to blame j In conclusion, let me urge
each parent to send regularly, "lis
but justice to the community, tn the
teacher, and to the child,
Yours very truly,

REPLY.
Gentlemen—
I have much pleasure in acceding to
your request conveyed to me in your
requisition, that 1 would allow myself
to be nominated as a Candidate, at
the ensuing election of a Representative to till the seat now vacant in the
House of Commons. If I should be
elected to fill this honorable position,
I will give mv support tn the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that mv future course of action
may meet with the approval of my
constituents, as it did on former occasions when 1 had the honor of representing you in the Legislative Council
of this Colony. If elected, I will advocate the early completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
1 will urge upon the Government
the necessity of placing the Dominion
Lands, how held in reserve, in a position so they may be made available
for immediate settlement.
I will endeavor to show the Government the benefit which would be derived from the extension of the Ocean
Mail Service to the Mainland, and to
obtaining greater mail facilities
throughout the Province.
As British Columbia has not been
admitted to the benefits of the Washington Treaty, I will urge upon the
Government the justice of allowing an
abatement of Customs duties upon all
.Iterial required for the Fisheries,
and will ask for an appropriation foi
the establishing of Hatcheries.
The Agricultural, Manufacturing,
and Mining interests will receive my
most careful attention, and if the formation of a Commercial Federation of
Great Britain and her Colonies, for
their mutual benefit, should come
under consideration, it will receive
mv earnest support,
'Owing to the transitory slate of the
Dominion, many new questions will
undoubtedly arise; in dealing with
these, 1 will see that the interests of
my constituents are protected.
I am, Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,
Jaa8 J. A. R. HOMER.
Visitor, Bishop of New Westminster.
Lady Principal,  -  Hiss Kendall.

LOVE AND GREEK.
. j        ■{ClUll'lUllOll.)
This letter reached David on Thursday morning. He read it two or threo
times, and' the expression of his face,
which had;been 90 gloomy as to have
frightened the waiters during the past
weeks, became moro and more hopeful and joyous. Then he muttered,
frowitiug'ritfuin:
"If it'ia'true, what a brute she
must think me!"
Tho view of the case which John's
last words suggested to hint was quite
new. On that day when Amy left
him, and lie could not work, David
had awjikcnod to the knowledge that
she had taken possession of his hear!.
Ho tried to master his love in the days
that followed, and never thought that
he was causing her pain. Any kindness she had shown him had been attributed by him, -with a diffident bitterness resulting from Ills former experience, to the fact that Amy was a
woman and he was the only follow
near. Once sjijce, he left the thought
of tho possibility that sho cared for
him had presented itself; but he immediately -stifled it, saying to himself;
"What should a girl Hud to care fur
in a gray-headed old idiot like me,''
Ho was soon on his way to Drtnnna-
droollit, and, as he drove along, hope
and fear bytums possessed him.
They never know exactly how they
came to be in 0110 another's arms.
Perhaps a lguder blast than usual had
drowned their words, and that might
account for their omitting to exchange
assurances of lovo.   Presently ho said:
"My darling, what did you think of
me V
"X thought you v.-ero novel* coming
back," answered Amy iu a voice which
still trembled.
"If Jihad thought for a moment
that you could over care for me I
should never have gone away; but I
could noc bear to be near you any
longer.1'
"Then you are not going to Egypt!"
said Amy, half laughing, but with
tho ironior of post sobs in her voice
Ho hold her face so that he might
gaze into tho tender eyes, and said,
after a [muse:
"Not t till you go with me. Will
you, sumo day {''
She spoke no word, but he read his
answer in her face, and a long kiss was
the result of it.
Whilo they had been heedless ot all
around, the wind had fallen; clouds
had gathered, the sky had grown
darker and darker, and now they wero
suddenly aroused by a loud poul of
thunder- It had been muttering in
the distance, unheard by them. Flashes
of lightning quickly ftue'eaeded each
other; tho thunder rolled overhead;
the vain came down in torrents, and
presently the wind roso again mure
furious than over, and seemed to intend to tear tholf shelter with it in its
mad career. It was imppasiblb to talk;
but that Willi nut necessary. Thoy
were at peace with each other, and it
did nut matter what storms raged
without..   ■
Mrs. Dalrymple became very much
.alarmed about 'Amy ou the first outbreak of the storm, and waa frequently
at tho window watching anxiously for
her. When 'the rain ceased and the
clouds were ilying before tho wind she
called out:
"John, John, he has dmio it! Here
they are, at last!'' aud as they came
in John said;
"Storms seem to be your element.
You both look wonderfully well. Wliat
have you been doing tu Amy to give
her back her ruses ?!l
"I havo been persuading her to take
you for a brother-in-law," was David's
answer.
The joyuus effect of those words
may be imagined.
In the evening John asked suddenly;
"What about tho vow, old fellow?"
He thoroughly deserved the terrible
glance bestowed on him by his wife;
but—he had lost his wager.
David looked tenderly at Amy's
blushing face, and rniil quietly!
"Some vows,- like some customs, arc
more 'honored in the breach than iu
the observance.'"
Amy did not look at him then, but
when she did it was not easy fur hiin
to resist the temptation to take her in
his arms again, though they were not
alonp.
There wns a wedding from Mrs.
Dalrymple's in December. Of all her
presents, the one most appreciated by
the bride was a beautifully bound
copy of the befurc-mantioued "He-
view."
WHAT THE SHEPHERD SAW
A Tale of Four Moonlight Nights.
FIRST NUillT.
The Christina.'' tuooti shone coldly
upon the upland, and the upland reflected its Irradiation m frost-sparklos
so minute as r.nly to bo djscernnblo by
nn eye near at hand. This oyu was
the eye of n shepherd lad, exceptionally young for his occupation, who
stood within a wheeled hut of the
kind commonly in use among the
s I mop -keepers during tho early lambing season, ami was abstractedly looking through the loophole" at the sceno
without-
The spot was called Lambing Corner, and it was a sheltered portion nf
that wide expanse of rough past tiro
long known as Yenicunibu Down,
which you crois in its lower levels
whon following the turnpike road froth
Castorbridge eastward, before you
come to Mololioster, Here where the
hut stood, tlie land was high and dry,
open except to tho north, and commanding an undulating view for miles.
On tho north Bide grew a tall belt of
coarse furze, with enormous stalks, a
clump of tlio nftmfc standing detached
in front of the general mass. The
plump was hollow, aud the interior
had been ingeniously taken advantage
of as a position for the before mentioned hut, which was thus completely
screened from winds, and almost invisible, except through the narrow
approach. But the furao twigs had
been cut awny from the two littlo
windows of the hut, that tho occupier
might keep his eye on the scene,
Iu the rear, the shelter allnrded by
the belt of furze bushes was artificially
improved by an enclosure of upright
stakes interwoven with boughs of the
same prickly vegetation, and within
the enclosure lay the renowned Vern-
combe breeding flock of eight hundred
ewes-
To tho south in the direction of the
young shepherd's idle gaze, there rose
one conspicuous object above the uniform moonlit plateau, and only one.
It waa a Druidical trilithon, consisting
of three oblong stones in the form of
a doorway, two on end aud ono across
as a lintel. Each stotto had been
worn, scratched, washed, nibbled,
split; and otherwise attacked by ten
thousand different weathers; hut now
tho blocks looked shapely and littlo
the worse for wear, so beautifully wero
they silvered over by the light of tbo
moon. The ruin was locally called
the Devil's Door.
An old shepherd presently entered
the hut from tha direction of the owes,
and looked around in the gloom. "He
ye sleepy V lie asked in cross accents
uf the boy.
The lad replied rather timidly in
the negative.
"Then," said the slioplurd, "I'll
get mo home along, and rest for a few
hours. There's nothing to be done
here now as I can see. The ewes can
want 110 more tending till daybreak—
'tis beyond the bounds of reason that
they can. But as the order is that one
of us must bide, I'll leave you, d'yer
hear. You can sleep by day, and I
can't. And you can be down to my
house in ten m tint tea if anything
should happen, I can't afford ye candle; but, as 'tis Christmas week, and
tlio timo that folks havo hollorduys,
you can enjoy yourself by fulling
asleep a bit in tho chair, instead of
biding awake nil tho time. But mind,
not longer at once then while tha
shade of tho Devil's Door moves a
couple of spans, for ye must keep an
eye upon the ewes."
The boy nude lib definite reply, and
the old man, stirring the fire in the
stove with his crook-stem, closod the
door upon his companion and vanished.
As this had been more or less the
course of events every night since the
season's lambing had set in, the boy
was not at all surprised at the charge,
and amused himself for some time by
lighting straws at tho stove. He then
wentoLittoUieewesmid new born lambs,
re-entered, ant down, and finally foil
asleep. This was his customary manner of performing his watch, for though
special permission for naps had this
week boen accorded, he had, as a matter of fact, done tho same thing on
every preceding night, sleeping often
till awakened by a smack on the shoulder nt throe or four iu (he morning
from tho sheep-crook of the old man.
It might havo been about eleven
when he awoke. Ho was so surprised
at awaking without, apparently, being
called or struck, that on second
thoughts he assumed that somebody
must have called htm in spite of appearances, and looked out of the hut
window toward the sheep. They all
lay as quiet ns when he had visited
them, very little bleating being audible,
aud no human soul disturbing tho
sceno. Ho next looked from the opposite window, and here the case was
different. Tho frost facets glistened
under tho moon as before; an occasional furze bush showed as a dark
spot on the same; and in the foreground stood the ghosily form of the
trilithon. But in front of the trilithon stood a man,
That he was not the shepherd, or
any ono of the farm laborers, was apparent in a moment's observation, his
dress being a dark suit, and his figure
of slender build and graceful carriage.
He walked backward and forward in
front of the trilithon.
Tho shepherd lad had hardly done
speculating on the strangeness of the
unknown's presence here at such an
hour, when he saw a second figure
crossing the open sward toward the
locality of the trilithon and furze
clump that screened the hut. The
second personage was a woman; and
immediately on sight of her the male
stranger hastened forward, meeting
her just in front of the hut window.
Before sho seemed to be aware of his
intention, he cloflpefl her in his arms.
Tho lady released herself, and drew
back with some dignity.
"You havo come, Harriet—bless
you for it'.'" ho exclaimed fervently.
"But not for this," sho answered,
in offended accents. And then mure
good-naturedly:
"I have come, Fred, because you
entreated me so! What can havo
been the object of writing auch a
letter? I feared I might be doing you
grievous ill by staying away. How
did you come here I"
"I walked all tho way frum my
father's."
"Well what is it? How have you
lived since we last met?"
"But roughly; you might have
known that without asking. I have
seen many lands and many faces since
I last walked these downs, but I have
only thought of you."
"Is it only to tell mo this that you
have summoned ine so strangely ?''
A passing breeze blew away the murmur of the reply and several succeeding sentences, till the man's voice
again became audible in the words,
"Harriet*—tl'uth between us two! I
havo heard that the duke does not
treat you too well."
"He is warni-touipered, but ho is a
good husband,"
"He speaks roughly to you, and
sometimes even threatens to lock you
out of doors."
"Only once, Fred! On my honor,
only once. The Duke is a fairly good
husband, I repeat. But you deserve
punishment for this night's trick of
drawing 1110 out. What dues it
moan f
"Harriet, is this fair or honest? Is
it not notorious that your life with
him is a sad ono—that, in spite of tbo
sweetness of your temper, the sourness of his embitters your days? I
havo como to know if I can help you.
You aro a duchess, and I am Fred
Pentridgej but it is liot impossible that
I may be ablo to help you Heavens! tho sweetness of that tongue
ought to keop him civil, especially
when thoro is added to it tho sweetness of that face!"
