The Ohlest inhiinuuntB.—Were
im)  Chinese Here 3,000
Years Ago?
What if anti(piarians are able to
provo that tlie Chinese wore the earliest Buttlem of this continent ? That
from tho luins of children of tho fluw-
ory kingdom are descended tbe native
tribes whom tbo white pioneers found
potsesbing tho bind? This theory baa
boon often advanced. A few weeks
ago a party of miners who were running a drift in the bank on one of the
creeks in the mining district of Cussiar
mado a remarkable find. At a depth
of several feet tho shovel of one of
the .party, raised about'30 of tho brass
coins '"milch "nave passed current in
China for many centuries. They were
strung on what appeared to bo an iron
wire. Tliis wire went to dust a few
minutes after being exposed; but the
coins appeared as bright and new as
wlieii thoy first' left tlio Celestial mint.
They have been brought to Victoria
and submitted to the inspection of intelligent Chinamen, who unite in pronouncing fhein to bo upwards of 3.000
years old. Thoy bear a date about
1,200 years anterior to the birth of
Ohrislh And now tbe question arises,
how tlio coins got to iho placo where
they were found. Tho miners say
there was no ovidonco of tho ground
having heeii dislurnod by man before
tlieir pioks and shovels penetrated it;
aud the fact that the coins are little
worn goes to show that they were not
long iu circulation beforo being hidden
or lost tit Cassiar. Whether thoy were
the property of. Chinese mariners who
wore wrecked on tlio north ctiaBt about
3.000 years ago and rointiiucd to peoplo
the continent: at whether tho Chinese
minors who went to Cassiar seven or
eight years ago deposited tho collection where it was found for the pur-
pnBe of establishing for their nation a
prior claim to the land, may never bo
known. But tbe native- tribes of this
const resemble the mongolian race so
closely that ono would not be surprised at any timo to hear of the discovery of yet more startling evidences
of 'ho presence of Chiuoso on this
coast before the coating of tho whites.

It has been demonstrated at Havro
(hat the use of the telephone betwoen
ships in tbo harbor and the town is
practicable oven in rough weather.
Tho fifteen years' research of the
British .Association's Committee on
Underground Temperature shows, as
the main result attained, that the temperature' on a wide average, increases
downwards at tiio rate of one Fahrenheit degree for overy sir. ty-four feet.

The cons'aut appearance of a minute
quantify of copper iu bread led a European chemist In make a careful e:.-
aminaiion of wheat, whon m a million
parts of tho grain he found nmo aud
one-fourth parts of metallic copper. A
somewhat larger proportion, of the
metal was found in oats.
A Belgian physicist, Mons, "Molsons,
proposes forming a cage of rods over
buildings to ensure absolute safety
from lightning. Be bus shown by late
experiments that the most powerful
discharges from a Leyden battery could
not injure a living animal oncloscd in
a hollow sphere of metallic links.
A. study of old records has shown a
Roman sanitary engineer that the ma-
larial region now surrounding tho oily
of Rome wus onco healthy and populous, and his investigations have convinced him that a restoration of the
ancients' system of deop draining
would free these lands from their fever
taint.
Mr. W. B. Wicken says that the
largo wart-liko glands ou tlie head nnd
hack of the toad secrete a thick, yol-
lowish-white fluid of an exceedingly
acrid and offensive nature. If these
glands aro squeezed or handled roughly, tho secretion is eluded through a
number of pin-like pores iu the surface
of the glands. This fact is doubtless
what gave the toad its reputation ns a
venomous reptile.
At tho summit of the Hillel (8,500
feet high) Capt. Abney has found the
spectrum of tho sun to bo tho same as
tn Loudon, but there is a vast diminution uf light aa woll as of aqueous
vapor. Tho quantity of alcohol and
benzine in the atmosphere was found
to be much greater at that altitude
than at sea-level, whieh loads Capt.
Abnoy to conclude that these substances como to us from space.
Tho soy beau (Soja hispida) approaches more nearly to animal food In
its proMmatu composition than any
othor known vegetable production,
being singularly rich itl fat and in
albuminoids, this bean forms an important article of food in Jitpan and
China, whore a doKOti or moro varieties aro known. Cf late it has attracted considerable attention in Europe, and numerous attempts havo
boon made to acclimatise it in several
European countries, Rome of the ox-
porimouls being re nut-tod tolerably
successful. !

The Ifolfc Election and Leek-
eating
As autumnal days steal over us.
nnd Nature casts her garb of green
for the somberer tints of russet nnd
golden brown that prelude the fall
of the leaf, what politicians ate
pleased to call their minds are in a
stato of unrest. The Yale eleetion
has been the inconsiderable cause of
considerable excitement "The Honorable Thomas Basil Humphreys,"
the "slnewd nnd able statesman" of
the Government organs, went to
Yule with a portfolio in his pocket
nnd a lio in his cheek! He had all
the backing the Government could
give—the two organs howling his
virtues and predicting his triumphant return.   What is the result?
Humphrey Dumphrey sat on the wall,
Humphrey Dnmphrey had a great fall,
And all the king's horses and all the
kings men
Could not set Humphrey Dumphrey up
again.
Tho amount of leek-eating to be
performed by the Standard and
Guardian men is something tremendous! Tlio case was not an ordinary
one. For weeks their leading columns woro devoted to peans about
"Tom's" great victory, and the result was announced with all tho circumstantial details before ever the
ballots were counted. No need for
theui to wait till the ballots were
counted, Not only did these oracles
give the general result, but the vote
at every polling place was announced,
and ''Torn" wns elected by a vote of
r-enrly two to one. Tbe figures were
not far from correct, but they were
ranged on wrong sides,—that was
all. The error wns very slight—only
a transposition of names. It was
Slat-tin instead of "Tom." The grim
man of the Sierras, when asked his
opinion about a neighbor, sonten-
tiously replied: "Mister, I don't
know very much about himj but my
imp'cssbn is that he'd make a 6rst-
class sl'-anger." Very similar was
Yale's opinion of "Tom." These
o'gan-men ought to learn to catch
their have befoie they skin him.
Nor does the result of the Yale elec
A.ton indicate the full mensuie of the
unpopularity of the Government.
Not much move than half tho votes
wore polled. The explanation is
obvious. Two Opposition candidates
were in tho field till the eleventh
hour—one in the upper end and the
other claiming to be a lower end
man, ami thus an element of sectional strife and jealousy was unfortunately engendered. Mr. Army-
tago had the patriotism to retire, but
lie could not and did not heal the
breach in the party. The con Be*
quorce was that many who would
havo voted for Mr. Arraytago would
not vote at all. Had all voted Mr.
Martin's majority, instead of being
87 would have been at tho very
least two hundred. Without intending to be offensive we may be permitted to ask our contemporaries of
the organs whether they ara fond of
"leeks."
But it is not alone the Yale election that is the occasion of anxiety
to the Government Tho unseating
of tho Attorney-General may be accepted ns n foregone conclusion. The
evidence is nll in, and off three votes
must go, givinj.
the  seat to Mr.
Pooley by exactly double the nmjori
iy   by  which   Mr. Hett   obtained
wrongful possession. And thon 1 Mr.
Beaven, with his little seul rattling
like a dried pea in a too large pod,
must step down and out, and admit
that it would havo been much better
if he had bowed gracofully to the
verdict of public opinion in July,
And  what   about  "William   the
treacherous"?
A serpent saw an eagle gain,
On soaring wing* a mountain height,
And envied him, and crawled with pain
To where he saw the bird alight.
So fickle fortune oftentimes
Befriends tho cunning and tho base,
And oft tho groveling reptile climbs
Up to the eagle's lofty place.
Rut Willinm   must como down
now. The mountain on whoso height
ib was his ambition   to crawl has
crumbled before the breath of public
opinion,   and   William's   shameful
treachery cannot save liim from the
fall.   Ho went up like a rocket: he
will como down like a stick.
The R. a Hospital Again.
Elsewhere will bo found a letter
from Adam Jackson, present hospital   steward.   The  communication
^^t^^e^s^miamms^m^Lvmwikmamuiis^ii^mmf^^^^mm
savors so strongly of impertinence
that it might well havo been relegated to the waste-paper; basket on
that account; but it suits oiu* purposo to print it. In the article so
savagely attacked by the steward it
was stated that "while there is room
for some forty beds, there aro only
sixteen beds in the place." The
steward says there are twenty beds,
"with four bedsteads in reserve, but
no bedding," and ho further asserts
that there is, so far as cubic air is
concerned, room for at least seventy
patients. Now, assuming tho correctness of the steward's statement,
we were under the mark as to the
number of beds and the capacity of
the premises. But the reader will
see at a glance that the slight error,
if eiror it be, does not in the least
weaken tho point of our complaint
or help the Managers of the hospital
out of the difficulty. Tt matters little whether there woie sixteen beds
or twenty, so long as there was not
one upon wliich the sick Sumas settler could be laid; and if there is
room for seventy patients instead of
forty, and if there were "four bedsteads in reserve but no bedding,"
just so much tho more culpable were
the Managers iu refusing to admit
a patient having such undoubted nnd
strong claims upon the institution as
the settler from Sumas had. Why
did they not at once procure bedding
for one of these "reserve bedsteads"
and take in one of tho most deserving applicants that ever knocked at
the door of that institution? Instead
of "helping a lame dog over the
style," the steward has unwittingly
knocked another pin from under it.
Considering the cirenmstnnces, nnd
the source from which it emanates,
we can well afford to smile at tlie
steward's impei livenb attempt to excuse his musters. But it is the business of the Columbian to criticise
fearlessly and impartially tho management of every public institution;
and when it needs instruction ns to
the scope of its criticisms itcan hardly
he expected to apply to tho hospital
steward.
Editorial Notes.
The feeling throughout the country
in favor of an immediate change of
Government ii very general and very
strong. The feeling ii by no means
confined to the Mainland. All intelligent minds are now convinced that it
is io Mr. Beaven the cminlry is chiefly
indebted for the deplorable muddle
into which dock maltors have been
brought, and the Island people now
thoroughly understand that it is lio
who has severed tho lost link connect.
Ing the Dominion Government witl:
the Island railway. If a general election were to take place to-morrow tii
verdict of the constituencies against
the Government would be oven moro
sweeping than it was three months
ago. Nor are the reasons far io seek.
The shameless conduct of Mr. Beaven
in still holding on to otlice in defiance
of adverse popular opinion, and the
circumstances under which tho member for this ciiy joined a condemned
cabins', taken in connection with tlio
very generally unacceptable policy of
what ia by courtesy termed the Gov
eminent, have had the effect of completely alienating the sympathies nud
destroying the confidence of the few
who had not before declared themselves in Opposition. Tbe administration was sufficiently unpopular beforo
Mr. Walkem left it Now it is detested!
Nailed by the ears io its own doorpost, how will our local contemporary
attempt to break its fall 1 A few extracts from its late leading articles
might be amusing if they were not dis-
dusting. Its lofty and oracular announcement of Tom's great triumph
and its biting irony whon taunting us
with defeat would make exquisite sauce
for the lovely dish of leeks it hns before it. Our contemporary fo a whalo
at fortelling the result of elections,
He hoi a wonderful faculty for accurately gauging popular opinion. Take,
for instance, Mr. Homor's election
less than a year ago. He predicted
Mr. Homer's crushing defeat; and yet
Mr. Homer was elect od by nearly
three to one. Then thero wnB Mr.
Robson's election. Nothing could
have been more certain thnn Mr. Robson's defeat—ignominious defeat; and
yet he was returned at the head of the
poll by the largest majority given in
any constituency in the Province,
And now comes iho Vale election,
which was to have been such a triumph for the Government, and such a
complete extinguisher for tho Opposition. And ytt the Government
candidate, the great statesman, with
all the Executive influence nnd the
whole weight ot the support of tho organs, was beaten nearly two to one!
Surely tho organ brings ill-luck to
whatever cause it espouses, Tho vory
worst we can wish a political opponent
is that the local organ may advocate
his cause..

In noticing tlio arrival of (he steamer Western Slopo at Victoria on Friday, the Standard indulges in the foi
lowing misleading nonsenso:
"She reports ihe river in good stago
for travel—4 feet higher than at this
timo hist year—and should suittciettfc
inducement oiler, she will continue to
make through trips until the water is
too low to admit of it."
The fact is that inatcad of boing
higher, the water has beon lower 'this
fall than usual. The Slope discon
tinucd hur through trips for hick of
sufficient water about iho middlo of
September, and thu Ilithot 'managed
to continue her through trips for about
a month longor, whon bIio, too, was
obliged to atop for want of sufiieiont
doptli of waior. No ''inducements"
could take ihe Slor^o up now, nor do
wo behove there is Biiflloieiit depth of
water for oven the Ui'hot to go through
to Yalo, or, indeed, above Murderer's
Bar.

On Monday evening John Dawson,
an old resident, was found dead on
his bod in his cabin. He was at
Church as usual on Sunday morning,
and a neighbor was iu his company till
two o'clock on Sunday afternoon, whon
lie appeared to be iu his usual state of
health, Whon found, ho had on tho
same clothes worn to Church, and all
tho surrounding circumstances indicated that it was on Sunday afternoon that
ho passed quietly away to that bettor
land for whicli ho hnd long been wishing and praying. Deceased was in his
seventy-fourth yoar, and whs a native
uf Scotland, and camo hero some
twelve or hfiocn years ago. A moat
inoffensive and good-living man, ho
will bo remembered us having ■"or several years occupied tho position of
Librarian in the Mechanics' Institute,
as well as sexton in tho Methodist
Church, The funeral will take placo
from the Methodist Church thia mo

On Saturday we mentioned the
shouting of an Indian woman by John
Hall, of Nor'.h Arm, Burrard Inlet,
Coroner Trew held an inquest at
Moodyville ou Friday, when tho jury
found that tho woman came to her
death from a bullet fired from a rifle
in the hands of John Hall, The Coroner issued his warrant, and Hall, already m custody, was taken before H.
Springor, Esq., J. l\,nud fully'cpm-
niitted to stand his trial for wilful
murder. Hu is now iu gaol iu tliis
city. .Peter Calder is also in gaol, in
default of security, held as tin important witness in the case. We understand Hall con'.ouds (hut fche;disolmrg-
ing of tho gun was accidental, as hfo
object was simply to intimidate tho
woman, who was making of with some
of his money; but we imagine that position will scarcely be tenable. Hall
is amongst tho early pioneers and has
always boen considered an itioteiisiv-:
man. Drink is said io have had something to do with it.

About this (imo last yea1.' a very
practical dcmo.is'rn'Jon was afforded of
the danger to navigation e.'.uied by
snags in that part of ihe Lower Fraser
known us '/Snaggy Dencli.*" It in during low water and Ion;*, dark nights in
October and Nu vein ber that these
snags present the greatest amount of
danger, and it was hoped that ihe contract would havo been so arranged
that this season's navigation would not
be exposed to the danger. It appears,
however, that thia important point has
not -been Buftieioiwly .guarded- inasmuch as tlie contractor lia-i i'Pj iho
middle of December, presumably the
end of navigation, to do tho work.
The tohders wero in by iho middle "of
September, and .why three months
should have "been allowed for the ■removal of twenty snags we are at a loss
to comprehend. Throe weeks should
lmvo been ample, and moro than ample time in which to havo removed
twenty snags at $100 apiece. We aro
not aware what power there is under
iho contract to hurry up the wor!;. but
it will bo mai-fcer of regret should navigation be again rendered dangerous or
impossible during the last fen* weeks
of the season, mure especially iu view
of the unusual amount of fnillio consequent upon railway cpnsfcruoiiion.

Photography toll's no lias, and,
therefore, tliu wonderful ''fish story!1
told by tho photograph of tho scone
presented in the mouth of Gordon
Creek is causing a sensation abroad,
Wo take tho following from Forest and
Stream, merely remarking that the
correspondent "Mowiteh'' and our
esteemed fellow-cHizon/J, 0. Hughes.
Esq. aro identical:—
"The woli-auHlonticaied stories of
the enormous runs of salmon up the
rivers of tho Pacific coast of North
America seem to bo so different from
the experience of most people that
they aro difficult to believe. Wu haVe
seen thom so thick that a spear could
not bo thrown in the rivor without
striking a salmon: but wo can truly
say that we never had su vivid a pic-
turo of swarms of lish until we this
week received a photograph of a scene
on ono of the rivers from our oh!
friend nnd correspondent, 'Mowiteh,'
who says; 'I believe this is ono of Iho
first attempts to obtain*photos of fish
in their native element.1 It is asfcoroa-
seopjo view taken, as it written on the
back of it, 'August. 1332. .Fish shown
uro thu auckeye of Fraser river, or

hijachus nsrfat, "Walb. Gill and Jordan.

below tho town of Yale, D, C. It lias
no peculiarities differing from, or advantages over, coun ties.*" K'-reanis emptying into Fraser river, and the number
of lish to ho found in it is probably no
greater than in others uf equal siW
The fish nut being in a quiet slate, together with tho glare of the.Biui, render their outlines in some cases indistinct; still thu artist has boon singularly bappy iu producing a photograph
which is altogether unique' The foregoing remarks of'Mowiteh'aro (rue.
Wu had no idea that rapidly moving
lii;h could bo photographed at nil,
especially in a rivor. In some places
they are shown to bo three doop, and
doubtless thoro were moro below,
whilo tho surface is as thickly strewn
with them as it is possible to be. " Wo
can now almost believe tlie old California story of walking across tho river
dry shod ou tho back of tho salmon.'*

Editor CotujiniAN.---Permit mo tu
draw your attention to a very errono-
ous statement which nppcared in au,
article in your issue of 21st. inst., under the caption, "Royal Columbian
Hospital"—"It appeared on enquiry
tliat whilo thero in room for somo forty
bods, thoro" aro only sixteen bods in
tho place, nnd it was theso okleou
bods that were full."
From whom you received your information I caro not to ask. I simply
bog to state you havo beon must egro-
giously misled, for at thu timo appli-
catiou'was mado for (ho tulmission of
tho "Sumas settlor" there were twonly
patients iu tho hospital, comfortably
nodded, with four bedsteads in reserve,
but no bedding.
With regard to thu amount of cubic
foot of air ordinarily required, at least
seventy patients could bo comfortably
housed. Your published statement is
so flagrantly opposed to the real facts
of the caso, and bo uontnulictory of my
monthly reports to tho Board of Management, as taken from the boo!;.';
which I am instructed to keop, flint T
trust you will do mo tho justice of setting this matter right in tho eyes of
the public nt your earliest convenience;
and, in conclusion, allow ino to suggest
that in future you .make yourself
acquainted with mutters of such importance through a reliable channel,
and avoid disseminating through your
columns statements so adverse to
truth.

EniToii Con'MuiAN.—Having road
tlio editorial iu iho Colonist of (he 7th
instant under ihe head of '"Thu E:'lii-
bil.'uii,"' your answer thereto, and lhe
reply in ihe Golojii I under tlio caption
"Islandphebin," and having been a
visitor ii) the e:.hil'iiiou ihoruiii mentioned, and having had the honor of
being appointed one n" tho judges of
livo stock, I may, without presumption, say a few words on the subject.
In tho fow remarks I shall make it
is not my intention to say*anything
offensive of any person, but to point
out defects in the general management
so that they may be avoided in future;
and in doing so I regret having to disagree with the editor of tho Colonist in
holding up iho exhibition as a success,
for my candid opinion is that as an
agricultural exhibition it was a failure.
Iu fact, I am under (he impression
that it should not bo designated au
agricultural exhibition, It would be
mbre appropriate to call it (he Victoria
racer-, wiih the agricullural and industrial exhibition as a ".lido show."
I am convinced, sir, that holding the
show two miles or inure out of Vicioria
is a grand mistake. It should lie held
in ho city, It'may bo all vory well to
make a harvest for tho cab-drivers and
livory-stabTii keepers; but exhibitors
do not want to bo put to the expense
of cab or bus fare every day or twice a
day as the caso may be.
I am not prepared to say who waa
io blaine. but there certainly was evident mismanagement hi tbo clasaiijoa-
f iiiu of stock, fchbrough-brods and yrade
animals being mitced together,*aiid iho
pens for sheep and pigs.boiugao cqn-
sa'uced that it w;'s almost impossible
for tho judges to arrive at a aa.l'niactor y decision as to tho merits'or demerits of tho stuck thoy wore o\pouted
tn judge.
Another piece of gross, mismanagement was the admission of the public
in (ho morning boforo iho judges in
the various depar;■num's had ail opportunity of performing the duties assigned; to them, causing them to have to
ptir'orm thoso duties under very great
difficulties in llio crowd, and with ilie
owners of the stock at tbeic'elbti-S'S,
each expatiating on Ihe superiority of
his own exhibit and quietly poiliiing
out defect in that of his neighbor! In
all shows of the kind I have evor attended it has been the rule for tho
judges in the various departments to
perform tlieir duties previous to tiie
admission of the public, even <o tho
exclusion of iho e.-,iubilors, so that ihe
various exhibits may bo fairly judged
and ticketed. Tho public arc tnon
ablo to soo to whom prices have been
awarded,
In conclusion I may bo permitted to
suggest io our neighbors at the capital
that in tho event of an agricultural
exhibition being held at Victoria again,
—and I U'list thero will be a great
nnny~that it be hold in Victoria nnd
thai; the money hitherto given as prizes
for horse-racing, foot-racing, base-ball,
ite.j bo devoted to purposes for which
it is granted by (lie Government, togothor with tho subscription fees, en-
trios, ito,, thon there will bo no noces*
sity to deduct leu per cont. from llio
pciaos awarded. I have no objeciiou
to hiirao-racing, font-racing, or any
athletic sports; but I certainly do object to the public money beiuf. devoted
to lhat purpose to (lie detriment of
exhibitors who havo to be at tiie expense of travelling from eighty to one
hundred and fifty miles to e--.hii.-it.

Tlio Committee under Sir Archibald Alison, appointed to report on

that the tunnel should be provided
with a portcullis and moans for filling
it for a sufficient spaas with irrospira-
blo gas, and that measures should bo
taken for the demolition of (ho land
portion of tho tunnel, for (ho temporary flooding of the main f immm-1 and
for total dcsiruct.ion by mines. These
arrangements should bri controlled by
sepi'vate parties inside and outside the
commanding fortress. When all tliis

Memoranda from General Sir Garnet Wolsoh-y, Sir Chas. Dilke, and

We beg to call the. attention cf the

which a tag accompatjios each one of our

to say that tho old plan of charging fer

the manufacturers were content with tlio

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER IH.
BUEAKINa INTO ftilStNESS.
(Continued.)
Poor Mra. Simpson little know how
completely her antipathy to the Bennetts hnd boon betrayed to the ladies
of the manse and Invorallan—not, as
oho imagined, by the talk and laughter
which must have followed on her bltin**
dering visit, but by turns of phrase
and tones of her own voice,'which expressed volumes. Neither Lady Forbes
nor Mrs. Forbes evor dreamed of discussing her, yot each kiieAvof her dislike, and now Miss Forbes showed her-
solf equally clear-sighted.
When, after the death of his wife,
Sir Duncan frequently consulted Mrs.
Bennett rather than Mrs, Simpsen on
trifles - that concerned the baby, and
oven allowed tho child to remain for
some weeks at tho manse, lie added
fuel to tho lire of the house-keeper's
wrath; and it would hardly bo nccuBing
lior unjustly to say that she rejoiced
to hear in after-days of Ronald's escapades. It seemed as ify after years of
patient waiting, -ahe would be able at
last to oxclaim, "Itell't ydu sae—tell't
yo nae guid cu'd come o thae folk."
No ouo was more conscious of her
enmity than Ronald himself; and, u
has been said, he lost no opportunity
of provoking it, not being as yet aware
that it is always wisest to conciliate a
foo, especially if that foe be a woman.
Yet what harm could an old woman
like Mrs. Simpson do to a boy like
him ? Her angry glances and air of
dignity amused him, and, boy-like, he
let hor seo his laughter. No wonder
that sho thought him rude, and unfit
to associate with the laird's bairn: she
could not know that his boisterous fun
was nevor seen when Muriel was by.
Little Muriel's education had as yet
boon of a somewhat haphazard de-
Bcn'ptiou; lessons, during her visit to
her aunt, had been a fruitful source of
discord; and from tho frank account
sho gavo of hor own behavior, Mrs,
Sennet could easily perceive that Miss
Forbes must have imagined her to be
far more ignorant than she really was.
lfIt is very wrong of you bairnie,"
sho would say; you should not vex '
your aunt; and, besides,you will, make
lier think that I have taught you very
badly, She knows that you conit
overy day to me for lessons, so she will
"blame me for your ignorance."
"Oh, dear niamsic, I never moant
that! Oh, if I had thought of that, I
would have been so good!"
"You see, if you are naughty you
do   moro   harm   than you know of,
bairnte.    Now don't talk any more,
. but learn your history,-like a douce
woo woman."
The little face would turn resolutely
to the book after this appeal, and the
lesson, which no argument of Aunt
Alicia's could extort from the child,
would be said with eager earnest to
"nmmsie."
Tliese two, in fact, understood each
■other perfectly; aud the child's voico
•was, never so sweet as in uttering the
pet name hor baby lips had invented,
nor wero Mrs. Bennett's gray eyes
over so tender as when she looked
fondly iu thoso of hor dear friend's
daughter. Ber very tone waa softer
in addressing her; and it is impossible
lo put on paper that pathetic inflection, that quaint combination of Knglish words and refinod Highland accent, which, when onco heard, can
never be forgotten.
Her studies over, a maid arrived
daily to fetch Muriel; hut it was a
bright morning for her if Ronald came
straight hack from school and would
play with her for halt an hour before
sho went home.
It wns on tho day when a second let-
tor had arrived from Miss Forbes for
Sir Duncan that Ronald, unconscious
of tho opposition in storo for hiin, met
the child just as sho hud passed the
village school.
"Oh, Uonny, do como to the fall
with me!" cried she, running up to
him; and nothing loath, ho agreetl.
The water-fall in question was tho
children's favorite'haunt; a little burn
foamed ovor a steep rock, and formed
at its base a good-sized pool, deep
enough to be fascinating without being
actually dangerous, two bent and
gnarled rowans almost met across the
pool, and thoir branches made delightful scuts, ull the more charming because the brown water was below them.
A fow yards lower down the burn was
spanned by a small but auuient bridge,
over whose steep arch a foot-path led
from the village to tho Hall. *
Muriel's muid was so accustomed to
tho children's play that she paid little
hoed to them, and amused herself by
gathering blackberries, while they
scrambled about the pool.
Tho child's great delight was to slide
out ua fur as she dared on the rowan-
brunch; while Ronald, wading below,
steadiod her on hor perch. On this
particular morning either she was more
adventurous than usual, or less careful
in her hold; and just as Mrs. Simpson
chanced to appo<sr on the bridge Muriel
slipped, nnd, uttering a shriek, fell,
dragging Ronald with ber. Not much
harm ensuod; for tho boy quiqkly recovered his balance, and lifted Muriel,
who wus a slight child, on to the nearest rock in a moment, and thence to
the bank, before the nurse-nnd Mrs.
Shiipsou reached the spot.
"Undo guide us, Miss Mttriel, ye
mlcht hue been droonedl.Wbat laddie's
yon that's wi'yo?" cried Mrs, Simpson, who know him perfectly woll,
evon beforo ho turned to herwii-hn
mooii, profound bow.
"So it's Mra. Bunnutt's buirn! My
cortio, if that's the gait you guide Miss
Muriel, Uio laird will lot ye hoar o't!
What n plnoo to pit a young loddy in!
Yu ought to bo nshumod o yoursel'l"
criod the houso-keeper, really frightened, but also secretly pleased at this
ohanco of rebuking the boy hIio dislik-
od, "As for you," b'kj continued,
turning to the muid, "HI just let the
luird Ron that you wero awa' pu'ing
berries when ymi should have been
bringing tlio young loddy bamo, in-
utoad of leaving lior dnundorin' here
wi' yon ill-mannorod laddie Ronnld
Bennet*-."
During this tirade Muriel hnd ro-
mainod standing, with bewildered eyes
scanned thu three faces beside her;
now sho uscortod heraolf unexpectedly:
"Mrs. Simpson^ I'm quite sure if
papa were here you would not speak
so to Uonny, and I shall tell him so.
I'm not a bit hurt, and very little wot,
only my frock, just because Ronny
picked me up so quick. If papa chooses
me to play with him, you can have
nothing to say against it,"
- If a thunder-bolt had fallen at the
house-hooper's teet she could not have
been more surprised, and she remained
speechless, while Muriel begged Ronald to come up with her at once aud
see her father. Ronald, however, refused. "I've got nothing to say to
him; and, besides, I'm going homo,"
he replied, gently; then, with a change
of voice and expression that completed
poor Muriel's astonishment, he turned
to Mrs. Simpson. "I'll wussye gude-
day," said he, in a tone that sounded
like mimicry of her own; and, with a
laugh and * leap, he was up the bank
and away in a moment
Before an hour was over Sir Duncan
'heard from his daughter and his housekeeper two very different accounts of
the morning's adventure; and though
he quietly and decidedly took the
children's part, he was conscious of a
-faint suspicion, that there might be
some cause for -his Bister's remarks.
He would at least enquire; perhaps
Ronald Bennett was not as satisfactory
a boy as his mother's boii ought tu
have been.
The very noz.t day he strolled down
to the manse, saying that he would
bring Miss Muriel home himself. He
timed his arrival so as to pass the
school just u it "scaled;" and he observed that among the noisiest boys
who burst out of its doors was Bennett, who, the moment he caught sight
of Sir Duncan's tall, spare figure,
seemed bent on shouting and pushing
more violently than before. His hair
was rough, his waistcoat half-buttoned,
his tie awry, and certainty he looked a
strange companion for tlie dainty little
lady from the Hall,
Sir Duncan, however, went up to
him and held out his hand. "My boy,"
said he, in his pleasant voice, "I have
to thank you heartily for saving Muriel
from a nasty fall yesterday; she told
me how quick you were. It was a
mercy you were with her."
Ronald colored to his temples as he
looked straight in Sir Duncan's face.
"Perhaps I shouldn't have let her go
so far out, Sir Duncan; but she liked
it, and I didn't think there was any
fear of her falling. You might bu
angry with me, I think, instead of
thanking me."
Sir Duncan omiled. "No, indeed;
I could hardly expeet you to be wiser
than your years. If any one was to
blame, it was tho maid. I'm going on
to the manse for Muriel now- -are you
coming ?"
"Yes, Sir Duncan.*'
"Come alont?, then, t am going to
tell your mother that Miss Forbes iB
-coining to live at the Hall. Who is
that tall boy on the other side there ?
Is he a friend of yours I''
"Tom Pateraon," replied Ronald,
rather shyly, not replying to the lost
question, Tom was one of the most
incorrigible boys in the village; and
just now, in passing, he had called out
roughly to Ronald, who felt annoyed,
without clearly knowing why,
"Pateraon, the brother of that poor
fellow that has ruined himself with
drink ?"
"Yes."
"Ah! tho boy looks a rough fellow
too. It is a great pity; that whole
family have gone wrong for want of
spirit enough to go right," said Sir
Duncan, with a glance at the drooping
head beside him. He suspected that
he was delivering a home-thrust, and
was careful to speak, not as a critic,
but as one friend to another. "How's
your mother, Ronald? has she had any
moro of her bad colds?'* ho continued.
The boy looked up brightly, und before the two had reached the manse
Sir Duncan had obtained an insight
into points of Ronald's character that
neither the quiet, resorved minister
nor oven Mrs. Bennett herself, had
been able to gain.
"The lad's a gentleman," thought
Sir Duncan, as he reached tho door,
"but he ought to be out of that school.
Tom Patersou's no companion for him.
I can quite imagine that Mra. Simpson
doesn't liko him.
Muriel's lessons were over, but she
gladly ran o'f with Ronald till her
father should be ready; and Sir Duncan noticed the gentle, protecting way
in which he spoke te her. Was Miss
Forbes right, after all, in thinking that
the children should not be so much
together 1
"How old is Ronald, Mrs. Ben-
net ?" he inquired.
"Thirteen, Sir Duncan," she replied, wondering at the question, till
she observed the direction of her companion's eyes.
"Too old to be at a mere village
school, is he not V*
"Perhaps; but his father supplements the teaching, and I see no reason
for parting with him till he goes to
Edinburgh."
"Has ho settled on Us1 profession
yetr
"You know that his father has settled on one fer him; he will be a minister."
"Are you really keeping to that intention r exclaimed Sir Duncan, looking up in surprise. "It is long now
sinco we have spoken of it."
"Why not? There's many a good,
quiet man has been full of life and
spirit as a boy. His father's heart is
sot upon it, and--I couldn't spare him
to anything else," Bhe added sharply.
"I don't wonder at your thinking
you could not, but I confess Ronald
does not look to me as if he were cut
out for the ministry. However, I did
not como to talk of him, but, as usual,
of myself," said Sir Duncan, smiling.
"My Bister intends taking up her
abode for a whilo at tho Hall."
"Indeed t That will be a great
change for you—and Muriel," said
Mra, Bennett, visibly startled.
"It will. The fact la, Alicia has
talked my mother into thinking that
Muriel requires more constant supervision than I can give, or you either,
as you are not in the house with her;
and I dare say there is some truth in
what thoy say. Alicia insists on a
governess for the child.
"Miss Forbes is right, Sir Duncan;
and, indeed, I was thinking of proposing something of tho kind myself."
