Across Ilie Aoanialns.
HaTlng herd ao much of the Selkirk, ui the terror of railway men,
we were astonished to find a fair
trail and a well-defined open talley
leading right-Into the heart of the
nag.; After travailing for about
aixteen mile. K»th'wes»r]r Ifl tbe
valley of the Beaver, and then following up a large tributary called
Bear Creek for. two or three milea iu
a north-westerly direction, we'came
upon Major Critehelow'a camp and
accepted hia hospitality for tlie
night. The summit, we were told,
waa only ain mile, farther weit, and,
had it not been for our four hours-
detention in the morning, we oould.
have made it before dark. Certainly, we had uot expected to reach the
summit Of the Selkirk, in one day's
march from tbe Columbia; but here
we were within touch, without having had any difficulties worth apauk-
ing o! to encounter; A better lot of
fellows than Crilohelow's party, it
wonld be difficult to find. They
had worked down from the aummit
' and apoke enthusiastically of the
scenery there. We would see it. all.
after an easy rid. in tbe morning,
and tbey adviaad ua to halt in the
pasa as long as possible, as the feed-
was better than anywhere else in
the range. Carroll, the topographer
of the party, had accompanied Major Rogera in 1882,. when he discovered the pass, and one of tbe
mountains overhanging it waB uutued
after him in acknowledgment of his |
services. His own explanation of
the origin of the name, Mount Oar-
roll, was slightly different. ' "I saw
a big grizzly white climbing it, and
he looked bo wicked that I turned
and ran two miles to camp without
once looking behind. Hence tbe
name," Bear Creek .warms with
black bears aiid grizzlies, and'Carroll might be safely matched against
two or three at a time. The place
is a paradise for sportsmen. Carroll
has established a Cattle ranche 80
miles south of Ihe Kicking Horse
Cache, at the Upper Columbia Lake,
where would be the best, passible
headqueiteis tor men who desired a
summer', fishing and bunting on a
grand scale. There is a good lake
for boating; trout all the year round,
and splendid salmon fishing in Au-
5tut and September. Wild fowl,
uck, geete, swans in the greatest
abundance at the door; and bear.,
mountain sheep and goats, and'he
noble cariboo within a day's, and on
to a week's travel. What moro can
sportsmen wontl It would be ingratitude of the worst kiud wero we
to omit making honorable mention
of Major Critcbelow's cook. His
niigbty.dishes of porridge and condensed milk are never to be forgotten ; and.his dough-nuts win-, twisted:
perfeoUbn.
Tlie vallcya of the Beaver aud.
bear Creaks are filled with magnificent timber; cedar, cottonwood and
spruce of gigantio size; a good deal
of hemlock and Douglas fir, and a
sprinkling of white pine. Recent
fires have dwtroyed a portion. Mta-
surea should be .taken to prevent
wholesale destruction bf the fires
that are lit, it is aaid, by th. Indiana, bnt mon frequently, I be
litre, by thoughtless railroad men,
or prospectors not unwilling that
the underbru.li may be buir-id that
they may get through more easily,
and if. more rook exposures tban
would be possible otherwise.
In the morning we started for the
summit. The ascent was so easy
that 1 rode the .whole way. On
both side, of the trail grew an extraordinary variety of high bushes
laden with berries, lunging so conveniently that we cou|d pick baud-
fals without dismounting; blackberries, blue or partridge berries, goose-

an hour or two. ittte the jioor
brutes hail hud for ■ e two previous
days and nights. Vi took our seats
on a moss-grown rofcerj beside tbe
oreek and looked ronidvl A grander
and lovelier scene /ouidjumrcely be
imagined. We w/re in the centre
of a rich grassy 'uieaddv, bushes
laden with deliiions yld fruit
grouped . here unil there, and lofty
mountains, snow-peaked ind with
Slaoiera accumulating in tie higher
•pressions surrounding "son every
sloe, a narrow opening at the east
.where we bad entered, and another
at the west where we were to begin
the descent of th. nags', e»oepteil.
Td the north stretched fiwir point to
point an almost urfcrokeo field, of
snow two or throe ■*"<■' tsag, accumulating In gorgsr .Into glaciers.
High above the ii-ow, the looser
shales of the sunmits having worn
away, fantastjr columns  of   rock
»tood up.   0>e of these, from ita
resemblance to an old man coming
out of hip house to look down upon
ua, tbe Major had christened Hermit Peak.   To tbe east, Mount Carroll 'all but closed the entrance to
the Pass.   To tbe south, a bold forehead of rock stood out bare and
high above the, forest line, and beyond it exteided a camel's back,
rising tp a point that hid the distinctive mountain of the Pass, Syndicate Peak, as th. Major-had named,
it when, coming from the west in
1881 he beheld n  huge .cone, like
the   Matterborn,   dominating   tbe
whole range and apparently forbidding bis further search for a pass
that year.   We saw dimly through
mist gathering in the west another
grand mountain looming up like a
tower.   Seated in the centre of this
magnificent amphitheatre, wc congratulated tbe Major ou bis discovery
of the Pass, a discovery ao important
to the railway and to Canada.  'The
chief passed round some cigars, certified to be from Havana, and after
|. smoke in honor of the occasion, w.
resolved to constitute "The Canadian
Alpine Club/   The following interim officers wereiippointed: Sandford
Fleming, president; G. M.  Grant,
secretary; S. H. Fleming, treasurer.
Several   resolutions    were   passed,
unanimously; (1) that Major A. B.
Rogers, tho discoverer of the Pass
through the Selkirks,  be tbe firat
honorary member of the Club; (2)
that lhe Pass be named the Rogera
Pass; (3) that Mr. Albert Rogers,
in consideration ot. his services in
connection  with,-the discovery,*^hv|
the firat eleoted memher   of   the
Club; (4) tbat rales and regulations
regarding the election and qualifications of members lie determined at a
subsequent meeting, tu be hold at
the oall of the interim president.
Inasmuch as no institution can .be
established, by Biitons without eating, drinking and good fellowship,
the members then lunched together,
toasted the Queen in Summit Creek
water, vowed to plant .the Union
Jaok and the StarBand Stripes on
Syndicate Peak to greet the first
thro*jh.tr)''i"!; to the Pacific, drank
tbe wine of the country'tu tlii) shape
of luscious blackberries snd gooseberries, gathered on the spot, and the
party then finished the proceedings

Too Mtica Boon.
Tlie Nunoimo Free Press tliinka
there is in possibility of getting up
too big a "boom" for British Columbia. We aro of the nune opinion, and hav. already expressed a
fear that during tb. present season
people may come in largot numbers
than the circumstances of the country make desirable. Thia province
is young, and ita resources art
scarcely at all developed. It is a
very difficult country to traverse,
on account of ita large area and the
numerous mountains which are almost everywhere to be met with.
The good agricultural landa not
already taken up an not found in
large belts .a in tbe northwest, but
they are scattered in patches of
various dimensions over hundreds
of miles. Many of- these lands are
so sitnated that access to the market is difficult and expensive. Until our internal ayatem of communication has been greatly improved,
many obstacles to rapid settlement
will remain. These obstacles are
being removed from year to year, as
the revenue of the province wiil per
uiit, but that revenue is limited and
not capable of sudden expansion.
One of the greatest misfortunes in
Britisli Columbia has been the lack
of population; but we might suffer
a misfortune still greater if we
should be so overwhelmed with im-
oiigra-ts that we cunld not dispose
of them. Every person who goes
awny from this country dissatisfied
will do more h-irni than » good immigration ageut mny he able to
neutralize. There arc some newspapers in this province whioh have
been iu the habit of putting forward only the brightest phnse of the
facts, and these are even painted in
colors which tbe circumstances
would' scarcely justify. Tbis is a
mistaken policy. British Cu-uanU-
lias solid advantages over other parts
of the Dominion whioh will bear
the closest investigation. We need
not lie afraid to tell the whole truth
—to point ont the drawbacks as
well ns the attractions thnt are to
ba met -with. We believe there is
every probability that immigrants
will come in abundance, and it is
best thut before coming they should
understand fairly the condition of
the country. In the long run mis-
represi-nliition does not pay. People who ciime here for the purpose
of securing homes need not expect
to escape privations and disappointments, but those who are made of
the right stuff may easily accommodate themselves to onr peculiar circumstances, and thoy will succeed.
Tbe rort Moody Meeting.
Ever since the present government cam. into office it has been
represented by th. local organ as
particularly hostile to Port Moody.
This misrepresentation seems for.
time to have accomplished the organ's purpose, for there was undoubtedly, a very hostile feeling
among the citizens of Port Moody
against the government. Because
of ciiciimstances which are well
known the organ waa regarded for a
time a. an oracle at the terminus.
The people who cam. the new city
were principally strangers in the
country, and not in a position easily
t. distinguish the falaeiea which
stood out so conspicuously in th.
organ's utterances. But during the
put year thar.hatbeen.very marked
change in public sentiment at the
terminal It has com. to be under-
Mood pretty generally that the locnl
opposition organ represents the opinion, of very few pwiplc, and that
its political uttsrancos are chiefly an
expression of ita editor's implacable
hatred of the provincial secretary.
Pert Moody used to be a kind of
Guardian preserve, .nd any influence, whieh might interfere with
that condition of things were stoutly
resisted by the organ and a majority
. of its constituents. But tbat is all
put. Tha poople of Port Moody
have discovered what the people
every where else knew long age, that
on. cannot safely swallow everything that' .(near, in the organ.
For over a year Tbi Coiumbiajj
sutaoription list lu. been steadily
growing at Port Moody, and w.
venture now to avert that this jour-
nil is aa' Jenerally read at the ter-
rainee as the organ. Not only have
tb* (Mop), of Fort Moody been
gradnally changing newspapers, bnt
Ik** km IMD changing opinion, as
Well. They have discovered that
tho reported hostility of the government iB ono of the ordinary pieoes
of fraud put forward %y the organ
for political purposes. They Snd
that the government is just as well
disposed towards Port Moody as
towards any other part of the prov-'
ince. They find that every reason
able request of the people lias been
met or considered, aa fnr aa the circumstances of the country and
the revenue would permit, The
publio meeting held at Port Moody
last Saturday shows two things: it
shows that the people of Port
Moody are reasonable in their requests, und tlint there is n disposition on the part of the government
to- meet fairly tlieir wants. We
have no wish ito magnify the government; but we hear everywhere
throughout thia pari of the country
a universal expression, of satisfaction because the affairs of British
Columbia, are now administered by
men who seem to have the real Interests of the province at heart
Presidential campaign.
Our neighbors across the Hue appear to be greatly perplexed respecting ths approaching presidential
election. Tbe election of u president of the United States is one of
tlie most complex political developments in the world. Party organizations constitute the machinery,
and tbe different processes through
which % the vote .must pass before
the final result o.n be readied nre
almost incomprehensible to an outsider. It is a wonder that some
inventive Yankee has not long ngo
discovered a much simpler plan, by
which the costly, tedious und unsatisfactory process could be swept
away. Although pnrty lines are
closely drawn, and organisations
are very complete, there hangs over
every presidential election a veil of
uncertainty which it seems impossible to penetrate, A Into number
of the San Francisco Bulletin says:
The facts developed in the Republican canvass for n candidate for the
presidency are quite interesting.
Pennsylvania declared in state convention for Blaine. Thut declaration gives him the four votes from
that state at large. It is not yet
known how many votes he has
from the congressional districts. But
it is certain that he has n large majority of the delegation. He is like-
viae picking up districts in Now
York much faster than Ann-..
Three districts to Arthur's one were
bowled down yesterday. Illinois
has advanced Logan to the dignity
of "favorite son," But that position does not carry as much weight
as formerly, lt only confers directly the four votes at large of the
state. Randall is the only Democrat who has reached the "favorite
son" stage in the Democratic ranks,
but that means much more there.
There are some symptoms that Massachusetts will declare for Edmunds.
But there is n veritable boom for
Arthur in the south, which in this
case muy beenid to be a euphemism
for the treasury and postoffice departments. South Carolina is 'boiling over with enthusiasm for him.
The Collector of Internal Revenue
and the Postmaster at Charleston
have been elected delegates to Chicago. Nineteen out of the twenty
votes to which Alabama is entitled
arefor Arthur. The telegraph has not
furnished a statement of the offices
which they hold or expect to fill.
Tbey are going to Chicago with a
grand banner. Strange to say, the
canvass in this state is the most
opsque in the country. County
committees are appointing delegates
daily. But the county committees
and their delegations are unexplored
and unexplorable remainders. Nobody knows who the appointing
power or the appointees favor.
Probably they do not know themselves, and will not know, till their
personal interests are mado clear.
California seems to be more completely under the control of Ihe
wire-workers than any of her sisters. The public voice, even if it is
no more than a thin treble, is heard
elsewhere. But the Republican
masses hereabouts appear to be absolutely inarticulate. The Democrats make more noise, but it is
doubtful whether the rank and file
have any moro weight,

presence of soluble organic matter, or
of solid matter in suspension.. Odor-
Empty some of the water, cork up the
bottle and place it for a few houn in

cork, and if the odor is in the least
repulsive, the water ahould lie rejected. > By heating tha water to boiling,
an odor is evolved that otherwise does

a well is usually tasteless, even though
it mny contain a large amount of pu-

What is now a muddy canal, was then
a prosperous river. What is now a
lake, was a broad, fertile plain, studded
with towns and temples. Tho ruins
discovered in ita vicinity attest Its
original grandeur. Aa far back as oan
be deciphered from hieroglyphic its
name was "Tsan." Then it was eon
verted bythe Hebrews into "Zoan.1
Then the Onsks converted that into
"Tanls," which in the Arable language
subsequently became "San." It is a
place of, both Biblical and historitml
interest. Few travelers have cared to
visit the region, once rich in its harvests and pasturage, because of the
unwliolesonieness of thu great metropolis of ,n long dead post. It is infested with fever, very often drenched
with rains, and is defended by natives
who savagely resist invasion. In 1798,
a French commission contrived to get
through to it, and at ifta return published the results of its investigation.
No one after that had the hardihood
to venture into the forbidden and forbidding locality until 1661, wheti a
Turk, Marietta Piisha, with a small
force and limited means at his disposal,
made an attack upon ita principal temple. Others, not Musselimms, aided
him with necessary finances. It wns
only now nnd then that he could get a
little money to sustain, him iu his.
work. But his work was rewarded by
a remarkable discovery. He found a
treasure in broken obelisks, sphinxes,
shrines, architraves, columns and statues of gods and kings. A fewuf his
findings ne sent to the Louvre at Paris,
The rest of them lie scattered on the

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
, (Continued.)
He paused, positively to take breath.
Never had I seen Dudley so moved—
sn utterly unlike himself. His gray
eyes flashed with anger, and his, Voico
quivered with the intensity of hts
emotion. Overmastered by his ter-
. ror, and bewildered with the irritation of pain, he forgot the mere child
lie waa addressing, who shrunk away
from him as if he were some stranger
thus sternly reprimanding him.
"Did you not hear what I said juat
now, Nellie? where nre you going?"
for I was slipping out of the room
after poor Charlie.
"Only to shut hU window, Dudley,
I replied, meekly, "it is so damp and
''Let him do it himself. Cliarlic,
shut your own window, and close
your door;" then, as his footsteps
died away ulonj,' thu passage, "I suppose, Nellie, I cau bo obeyed in my
owu houso; wheu it comes to a clashing of wills, I would have you know
that I am master."
Strango words to me, strange, harsh,
unloving words, but I could bear them,
ay, and much more than that, Dud-
ley, my dear.
So I only laid my hand on his shoulder, and answered nothing, while he
still, applied himself to hush Rill's
tumultuous sobs; and when he had a
little succeeded, he placed her with
many kisses in my arms, and turned
to leave thn room.
"Dudley," I said, timidly, ."Dudley, I must speak to you a minute."
"What, do you want?' he asked,
more gently; "I can't talk to youyet."
"Don't be too harsh to poor Charlie; remember our mother's last words.
Dudley, you will repent it if you
are."
"Leave that to me," he returned,
haughtily; "I have never been found
harsh or unjust yet—at least, I think
not," and pressing his hand on his,
aching forehead, he went away, but I
heard bim sigh heavily as he passed
ChorlieVdoor.
It was the most miserable afternoon
that I had ever spent. Rill would not
leave* my arms, till, exhausted by her
fright and dreadful crying fit, she put
her head down on my neck, and fell
asleep, and all that time I had to
listen to Charlie's long wailing sahs,
passionate with the agony of a child's
despair.
Oh, if I could but go in and comfort him! Twice I paused on the
threshold, and twice went back; I
had nover disobeyed Dudley in my
life, and I did not know huw to begin
now.
It was quite a relief when Katie
came in, and I could unfold my tale
of horror to a sympathizing auditor,
but though she fairly cried over it, her
grief was nothing to that of Bruce,
when he arrived at tea-tune, and his
brother quietly put iti possession of
the facts.
"My pistol," said the poor fellow,
turning pale, "my pistol! and loaded.
Oh, Dudley, if things had come to the
worat, I should have been the murderer, not Charlie."
"You, Bruce!" cried Katie, wiping
hor eyes; "oh, Nellie, don't let him
talk so, and before his wife tool"
"Would you have come to have aeon
mo in prison, Kitty?" he asked, smiling grimly, "for I au sure they would
have put me there—leaving a loaded
{>istol nbout! oh, what accursed enre-
Bssneas! No, Halcot, tako the plate
away, I can't eat anything to-night,
you have effectually spoiled mv appetite."
..."Don't take it so to heart, Bruce,"
replied his brother languidly from the
sofa; "of course it was a mistake; you
forgot, and left it about. Do you
recollect, though, when you first loaded
it, and why?"
Bruce thought a minute.
"Oh, it was that? night uf the alarm,
when there were men in the garden,
and the mounted patrol rode down to
warn ns. I must have dune it then,
and forgotten all about it; but who
would have thought of that disobedient little monkey climbing up to get
it?"
"He is incorrigible," groaned Dud*
ley, "I shall have to send him away."
"Well, well, wo will see about that
afterwards, he must, have a good talking to first. By the bye, where is he?
are you not going to give him somo
tea?"   ,
"Halcot hss fust put some milk
and bread on the mat outside; he is
in solitary confinement at present.  On
aecond  thought, I don't mean to use.
severe measures, but the boy well deserves a caning, and would get it, too,
if he were not so delicate.   Did you
knock, as I told you, Halcot?"
"Yes, Dudley/'
"Did he answer yon?"
"No, he was crying too much; I
could   hear him sobbing from the
stairs,"
"Poor littlo beggar," muttered softhearted Bruce; and then Rill came
down, vory red-eyed and pallid, nnd
absorbed in her apron, having woke
up sulky and altogether unapproachable.
Whilo har big brothers nearly hugged her to death, and Katie lavished
strawberry jam on her, and Halcot
made depredations on the sugar-basin,
far whieh he got hia Angers caught
and severely punished, and Seymour
played "peep-bo," till he wu red in
the face—the little maiden only ran
her hand n-oaently through those lamentable sticks pf curls, or sitting bolt
upright, gave vixenish pinches to Nettle's tail, or rubbed her smarting eyes
to keep them awake.    .
"Baby doos not love her brothers at
all to-night," said Bruco, pretending
to cry, and ending with a dismal howl.
. "Stoopid," cried Rill, and gave her
boot to Seymour, with a regal air, to
be lsced up more tightly.
When Brtioe and Katie had taken
them*Ives off, with strict injunctions
not to tell Aunt Margaret to-night,
lent she should not sleep, I quietly
begged Dudley to lat ma go and see
how Charlie was getting on.
Ha hesitated Tor a moment, as if
inclined to ralont, but then said—
"No, Nellie, I think not; and I am
acting now not ou the hasty impulse
of tha moment, but from calm consideration. I have decided not to give
him any further punishment, hut a
fair hours' loneliness will do him no
harm; and I certainly do not wish you
to liave any conversation with him tonight; I mean to speak to him myself
baton breakfast to-morrow."
"Bat you won't leave him alono in
the dark T I pkyfed; "consider what
a timid, nervool,#»ld ho is."
"Haster may take him a light, if you
likt; bot »o one aloe need go near him
till Hnlcot goes to bed."      . |
"I turned away only half satisfied;
ht meant to ot merciful; but did ho
think what thoif hours of suspense
moat bi to Charlie, ahut up in hu
lonely room? If he would but have
Wt Wm te me; end I wished it mora
than over when I passed soon after,
and found Hester taking down tht !m-
tasted meal.
"Howie ho?' I asked,eagerly, "did
you speak to him?"
"No, miu; Muter Halcot told me
not.   Mr. Dudley's awful put out, to
be sure."
"But you saw him ?"
"Wall, misa, I can't aay as ;ho|f.I
did, for I just put the candle'down,
and drew the curtains, but he was huddled up on tho foot of the bed* wrapped in Muter Halcut'n coat, and did
not raise his head,"
"Wu he crying, Hester tf'
"Just whinneying like, as if he were
tired.  Law, don't fret, miu;, I'm sure
it wu an audacious' act of  Muter
Charlie's and ought to b« punished.
Poor darling Miss Baby, too," and settling hnr neat white apron, Hester
bustled awny with the tray.
But I sighed as I sat down in the
silent drawing-mom, and took Keith's
letter from my pocket* for my heart
wu heavy to-night—strangely heavy,
"little Charlie."
#■#*#**
I was still sitting alone iu the drawing-room two hours later, utterly
weary of myself and my own thoughts,
whon Halcot's curly head wu suddenly thrust in at the door.
"Nellie!   I wish you would come
up to our room ^directly; I am sure
there ib something tha matter with
Charlie—he looks so funny."
I dropped my work in amazement.
"So funny, Halcot?":
"Yes; he keeps sitting bolt upright
in bed, and his eyes are so bright and
lueer, and he does nothing but talk
bout   such   droll things — cricket-
matches, nnd lucifers; I can't make
him out a bit.   Do come; I'm sure he
is HI, or something,"
Full of forbodings. I hurried up
after Halcot, and bidding him follow
me with a light, went to the little
white bed in the comer of the boys'
mom.
Halcot had not exaggerated; the'
tint glance wu sufficient to show me
that.
Charlie wu kneeling up among his
pillows, doubling his fist at some imaginary object before him, his face
flushed and scarlet, his eyes brilliant
with unnatural luster, his respiration
oppressed and diflicult, while he poured
out a flood of incoherent matter in an
excited strained voice, that I had
nevor heard before.
One touch of the little burning
hand, and then I uid:
"Oh, Charlie, Charlie!" in such a
tone of agony, that Halcot looked
quite frightened.
"Shall I fetch Dudley, Nellie?"
"No, no; wait a moment; I must
speak to him myself. Keep farther
off*, Halcot—I don't want the light
any more." But the boy still held it
with shaking hands, and looked un.
"Charlie, darling, thero is no one
there; it is only a shadow on the wall
you seo. Como, lie down; look how
cool and fresh those pillows are,
Doos your head ache, dearie?-'
"Who are you?" he demanded, nervously, und shrinking from mo as I
tried to enforce my words,
"Why, it is only sister sitting by
you because you seem poorly. Come,
it is so cold, Charlie, let mo lay you
down."
"I can't lie down"—tossing his
head reslleuly—"do you know why,
Nellie?—it is Nellie, is it not? You
arc sure, Dudley is not behind you?"
"Quite sure, darling; there, is your
head comfortable?"
"No, no; that dreadful pistol keeps
going off in my ear. I am sure it is
nnder these somewhere," and he
plucked at tht) coverlet and blankets
with feeble, uucertnin Angers, that
made me turn cold all over. "I can't
sleep for the noise. Nellie, do—do
take it away."
"There, I havo thrown it out of the
window; you can't hear it nny more,
dear.   Now lie quiet."      .
"But are you sure Ddudley,is not
in the room?"
"Quite aura—ho is down-stairs."
"I don't think it wu Dudley I
meant. Dudley never spoke to mo
like that before, or looked at me with
such hashing eyes. He oould not be
cruel, could lie? and it wu cruet to
call me a wicked boy, and uy I had
killed haby! Oh, thst pistol, Nellie-
you hare not thrown it into the garden,
I know; you have only pretended."
"Come awny, Halcot -come, I want
you. You must sleep in Dudley's
room to-night."   '
"Is ho so very ill then? Oh, poo
little follow; I may just kiss and bid
limi good-night first?" .
"No, no, Halcot; come away, do
you hear me?—come;" but he only
stood motionless, with fut filling
eyes, till I put iny hand on his shoulder and led him out.
Why did he linger so? did some aad
Kresentiment come into hia boy's
eart that he should never, oh, never,
look on his young brothtr again?
"Dudley, open your door—I have
something to uy to you."
A thin, haggard face looked out at
me with shaded eyes.
"Let me rest, this one night, Nellie—oh, how you trouble me!"
"Dear brother, it is not I, but the
hardneu of our fate, 'Little Charlie'
is very ill, and you must go for Dr,
Waldegrave directly!"
"Yes, Halcot must sleep in your
room to-night, and to-morrow he and
Rill must be unt down the Fernery-
Katie will mind them for me—for, uh,
Dudley, Charlie hu tho scarlet fever!"
He cast on me a look of anguish I
shall never forget, and hurried away.
Halcot, standing behind me in the
pawage, now came up, and touched
me on the arm: the buy's face looked
quite livid with horror.
"Oh, Nellie, don't leave me till I
havo told you all. I have tried tb
hide it from you for fear of making
you uneasy, but you remember about
Grimm's Fairy Talu?'"
