Our Flslier) Interests.
In Lis very, practical and niuoh-
to, the-purpoae speech at the nomi-
tion on Thursday, Mr. Horner
touched upon several matters of
great importance to the District and
tho Province. The extension of tlio
ocean mail service to the Mainland
is a question of vital concernment
to this section of British Columbia,
am) should Mr. Homer bo fortunate
enough to reach Ottawa before Parliament riaes, which teems very
problematical at the present time,
there is littlo doubt that he would
b. able to count upon tho hearty
support of tlio whole of the Mainland delegation iu furthering that
object. Scarcely less important is
the fishery question, and those who
listened to Mr. Homer nt the hustings on Thursday must have been
favorably impressed with the thoroughly practical and business-like
views he enunciated ou this subject.
As we pointed out a week ago,
Columbia wants an open market in
the United States for the product of
her great fish farm, and we want
hatcheries ns a means of insuring
regular and abundant crops. Instead of insisting upon the rights of
this Province, under the treaty of
1870, Mr. Homer proposes seeking
a remedy more readily available, in
the form of equivalent advantages
.—drawbacks of duty upon articles
used in tha fishing industry and.the
establishment of Hatcheries. These
ara well within the power of the
Government immediately to grant;
aud rit is so obviously reasonable and
fail1 that this Prov ne should be
placed' in as favorable a position in
this reBpect as tlie other Provinces
that there seems no ground for apprehending- any demur. Besides,
as pointed out by Mr. Homer,
Canada has 'jvervthing to gain and
nothing to lose by the arrangement.
The undoubted result would be such
expansion of industry and trade as
would tell npon tho federal revenue
producing capacity of the country
to an extent that would far more
than recoup the Dotniuion treasury
in any outlay on hatcheries and
drawbacks. Mr. Homer is thorough
master of this question, as, indeed,
he is of the others ; and one cannot
help feeling that it would be a great
misfortune if, through what must bo
characterised as a worse than foolish
contest, he should be prevented
reaching Ottawa in time to secure
the necessary provision in the Estimates or obtaining such legislation
as may bo requisite for carrying the
arrangement into operation this
vear.
Inccinnlltlcs in Representation
Xew Westminster is the largest
producing District. ;f It, contributes
considerably mora than one-half of
the entire export of tlm Province.
With the exception of Victoria, it
possesses the largest, by far tlie largest, votftig power. It has 965
electors and three members — one
member to 322 voters. Victoria
has 1,384 electors and six members
—one member to;230 voters. Esquimau has 17*4 electors and two
membei'a^-oiie member to 871 voters.
Cowichan has 232 electors and two
members — one member to 110
voters. Nanaimo has only one
member to 537 electors. Comox
has one member and 96 electors.
Yale has three members and 470
electors—one member to 15G| voters.
Lillooet has two members and 181
electors—one member to 90A voters.
Cariboo has three members and 462
electors—one member to 154 voters.
iff^T Kootenay has two members
and 15 electors—one member to
7J voters 1 Jjgjl I' w'll he seen,
therefore, that of all the electoral
districts, with the exception of Nanaimo, this District has the smallest
representation in proportion to its
voting J»wer. In comparison with
flome. the disparity amount1, to a
monstrosity. We have been aware
for some time of a covert attempt
to magnify the prospective importance i of Kootenay, without doubt
for the purposo of endeavoring to
retain the present representation—
one member for seven and a half
voters/ If prospective importance
is to constitute the basis of the ro
vised representation,.New Westminster will' be entitled to a very high
rating.   It, would probably not be
too much to count upon the population of this District being doubled
in 1883. But in tho case of Kootenay it is quite different. Railway
work may not be commenced for
several years to come in that region
from where it is claimed Kootenay
is to derive so much bouetit, and
when railway work is in progrcs
there, it is by no means certain that
Kootenay shall derive much benefit
therefrom. Certain it is that the
Legislature would not be justified in
perpetuating the travesty upon representative government of allowing
fifteen electors to send two members
to tbo House upon so remote a contingency as a railway boom in
Kootenay. That the present Ministry would liko to do so may readily lie believed. But that they
would dare to perpetrate such an
outrage wo cannot believe.
Editorial Notes.
It would indetd be difficult to conceive of anything being mure heartily
and unanimously endorsed by the pen-
pie than baa the steam ferry scheme
advocated in these columns. All the
peeple on both sides of the river have
petitioned for it; and now the City
Council aro rounding it off, bo to
speak, by a memorial to the Government. Not only has the schema in
the abstract been endorsed, but it has
been placed ou the exact basis sketched
out aud advocated in these columns.
It is important that a proper understanding should be arrived at respecting the maintenance of those portions
of the trunk road lying within the
bounds of the several municipalities
on tlm Lower Fraier. We have been
led to believe that the Government
have iii lined to place the responsibility upon the municipal (ties, A little
reflection will, we think, show the unfairness of such a thing. Assuming
for the sake of argument that municipalities existed along tho line of the
trunk road above Yale, bow utterly
impracticable, and how unfair even if
practicable, it would be to maintain
that part of the road out of the revenues of such municipalities. The
trunk road, from Ladner's Landing to
Biirkerville, is a provincial road, and
that portion of it below Yalo is no less
provincial than that part of it above
Yale. Iu this matter, Jt appears to
us that the fundamental principle laid
down in the British North American
Act should govern. All inter-provih-
cial roads or works are Dominion, and
form a legitimate chargo upon the
federal revenue.
Talking about bridges and tho inconvenience and danger arising from
the want of them, we have something
more to say about Vedder croek. The
very Borious inconvenience, not unattended with risk to life and property,
occasioned by the absence of a bridge
over that stream where it is intersected
by the trunk road of the province, has
been repeatedly pointed out in theso
columns, and the Executive has been
urged to supply the desideratum, to do
which would hot, we have been assured,
involvo a greater expenditure than ona
hundred and fifty or two hundred dollars. But the Executive would not
move in the matter. Tlio Chief Commissioner was about to incur the momentous oxpenditure lost fall, but
upon making tho discovery that his
government was not in favor with the
settlers and that the building of the
bridge would not buy that favor, he
suddenly concluded not to do it. And
what has been the result 1 Ever since
the close of navigation the whole traffic
thus thrown upon the trunk road has
been subjected to most serious inconvenience. Teams cannot cross, while
passengers and freight are crossed'with
much difficulty and at considerable expense in time and money. Worse still,
crossing is attoudod with actual danger.
A short time ago Mr. K. Stevenson, of
Chilliwhack, came very near losing his
life in attempting to cross with a team.
All, man and horses aud vehicle, were
nearly lost—were saved by the merest
"scratch." Not only is the bridge in
question necessary for the through
traffic, but an important section of the
settlement requires it as a means of
getting out to church and school and
market. One hundred and fifty, or at
the vory most, two hundred, dollars
would suffice to obviate all this inconvenience and loss and risk to lifo and
property; and yet tlie Executive refuses to incur that trifling expense,
while, at the same time thousands of
dollars are being squandered upon
worse than useless missions to London,
and tens of thousands wasted upon
bungling attempts to build a graving-
dock which, when finished, if ever
finished, will prove an expensive
"white elephant?' on the hands of the
Province. Of courae we shall bo told
by subsidized penny-a-liners that Ministers aro only "judiciously husbanding the meager revenue of tlie country."
For what? In order that they may
buy the people's favor and votes at the
coming general election ? In that they
do the electors great injustice—display
gross ignorance of the character ot the
peophj,

Notes from the Interior.—Anderson, who had both feet frozen at the
forks of Quesnelle, some three months
ago, had his feet amputated at tho
hospital iu Barkcrville, and is doing
well. We believe it is intended to
raise a subscription to send him homo
to Old Canada. Mr. Ferguson, M.
P., P., addressed large meetings of his
constituents at Barkervillo, Stanley,
Quesnelmouth, and at the 150-mile
house, befura coming down. The object was to discuss the chief questions
of the day and ascertain the views
and wants of bis constituents.
Piscatorial Fraud —The seizure
at Chicago of canned salmon bearing
the labels of Lane, Pike & Nelson and
purporting to have been put up here,
reveals the fact that Luck A Co., of
San Francisco, have been iu tlio habit
of so labelling inferior Sacramento
tish. It also appears that Columbia
river fish have been extensively counterfeited. This is a serious matter for
us, as the practice is calculated, if not
intended, to bring our salmon into disfavor. The circumstance of the Columbia river tish interests being implicated constitutes the best guarantee
for a stop being put to so disreputable a fraud.
Team Over the Bank. — Toward
the close of hist week, while a team
belonging to the Railway- Company
and driven by Mr. Chester, was going
up Saw Mill Hill, near the Big Tunnel, tho team and lend slid over the

were killed and sleigh and load
smashed up and load scattered. —Sen-

The Graving Dock. -Ono hundred

hive a "white elephant." What was
not to have cost British Columbia a
si mde dollar has already nest about
half as much as the estimated price of
the entire work, and how much more
Columbia will be drawn in for it would
be idle to predict.

A\d Yet Another.—Yesterday tho
registrar received a telegram from
Victoria further postponing tho sitting
of tlie County Court till the 1st proximo! Thi'Bo settlers who came down,
at great inconvenience and expense, a
week ngo, and who havo waited over
for the Court to-inomnv, may return
to their homes, and we don't think
they could be blamed very much if
they disregarded the summonses of
the Court next time.
Acoipent.—On Saturday, a portion
of the scaffolding at tho penitentiary
work-shops, now in cnurso of erection,
gavo way, causing two uf the workmen to fall to the ground, a distance
of eighteen feet. One of them was
unhurt, but the other, Wm. A, Hand-
cock, coming in contact with somo
timber, sustained au injury in the side.
He was at once conveyed to thu city
and attended by Di. Sivewright. We
aro glad to learn that the'injury is not
considered serious.
From Hie Interior.
Tho up-country mail and express,
in charge of Capt. Bristol, arrived here
on Monday' night. There wore seven
passengers; 'including the following
members of thu Provincial Legislature:
-Messrs. Geo. Ferguson, George Cowan, Cariboo, and Messrs. William
Haul and William Brown, Lillooet.
They report travelling good, with
sleighing most of the way. The weather htul been very mild and stock was
doing well everywhere. On Thursday
the weather turned cold, thu mercury going down lo 0' below zero at
Cache Creek, Willi fierce winds. We
regret to learn that Mr. James Hamilton has been very ill at Clinton, his
condition occasioning much anxiety
amongst his many frituds. Mr. Vernon, M. P. P.. was to have been down
by this express, but it is under-stood
tliat the accident to tlio Okaiiugon
stage would cause him some delay iu
getting down.
Mr. Homeh's Canvas*.—As announced in our last issue, Mr. Homer
addressod a meeting nf electors at
Ladnor's Landing on Saturday, and
another at Mud Bay on Monday. On
both occasions his remarks were well
reaeived, and ho feels very much encouraged with tho resul' of the canvass so far. Mr. Humor returned to
this city yesterday, and he goes up to
the head of the District to-day, bv
express, and will hold meetings at all
the settlements on the way down.
Taking a Mean Advantage.—On
Saturday a gang of convicts were at
work on the penitentiary grounds at
tho time of the accident at tho new
buildings. The falling of the scam M-
ing attracting the attention of the
guards, one of the convicts, taking
advantage of the diversion, suddenly
rushed un to another of the convicts,
and struck him a fearful blow with a
spade, bending the implement with the
forco of the blow. Had the blow
fallen on the fellow's head (as ii supposed to have been intended) instead
of the shoulder, il might have been
fatal. We understand the cowardly
rascal has declared his intention to
tako the life of the other, against
whom he would appear to have a
grudge, These two are about tlio
worst cases in tha penitentiary.
More Ice Accidents.
Two Teams bo Uiulerl
On Thursday last Mr. James Leigh-
ton, Okanagon until carrier, was driving across Kamloops Lake wii.ii a pair
of horses, having Mr. George Stewart
and the mails with him in the cutter,
when the horses broke through aud
went under the ice, carrying the cut-
tor with them. Loightun end Stewart
succeeded iu getting out of the water
aud recovering the lulUl-bage. Mr. S.-
Tingley, who was following with it
spanking pair of valuable horses, and
who had Mr. Van Yul ken burg in tho
cutter with him, pulled up, and sought
a safer pass, Mr, VanVolkonburg getting out to prospect the ice. Mr.
Chas. Cooiney got in with Mr. Tingley
to act as pilot, presuming to in* acquainted with the ice in that locality.
They had not driven far, however,
when Mr. Tingley's team went down
and under the ice, rig und all, leaving
the two men fluuudoriug iu the water.
Mr. Cooiuey succeeded in getting out,
but Mr. Tingley waa some lifteen minutes in the water boforo he was rescued, with the thermometer 10" below
zero and n cutting wind swooping over
the lake! Mr. Van Volkenhnrg was,
wo understand, . badly frost bitten.
We are still without details as to Mr.
Tingley's condition, but presume no
serious consequences, followed tho ter-
ibly cold bath.

Communications.
An Important Mutter.
Editor British Columbian,—Will
you allow space for a growl from the
interior. I have heard from good au
thority that Mr. Onderdonk last year
got permission from the Canadian
Government to concentrate his forcos
on the lower sections of his contract
on tho plea that supplies could not be
obtained in the interior, and that by
building the lower portion of the Hue
he can get his supplies through from
the coast. How does it work ? There
is a largo surplus of grain in the interior. Farmers with large Blocks of
grain ou hand are unable to sell. The
Shuswup and other mills iii the interior can supply O. & Co. with moro
Hour than thoy can consume, at as low
rates as it can be imported fur. Fat
beef by the thousand is grazing over
the bunch grass hills, and hundreds of
head will havo to be driven over the
Rockies in search of a market this
coming summer. Lillooet grows tho
tmost I'.enns in the world, and British
Columbia vegetables can't be Surpassed.
Hore you have flour, beef, and vegetables, low iu price and. unsurpassed
in quality. Yet Mr. Onderdonk can't
get supplies in the interior. Why I
Because we do nut grow rice! If the
upper sections are built now the poor
Chinaman will have to starve on flour
and beef, and a few dollars will be put
in circulation, whereas now the construction money is going out uf the
country for toothsome rice for tho
Celestials to exercise their chopsticks
ou, nnd no one iu B. 0. is benefitted
by it.
What is to build up this country if
all enterprise is cheeked 1 There are
farmers here, enterprising men, with
grain from hundreds of acres on their
hands, who cannot raise money enough
to pay their grocery bills. I have
seen some wheat just threshed in this
Okanngoii country, by O'Kecfe A
Grsenhow, over 100 tons of it, that-
yielded 54 bushels to the acre, as good
wheat as can bu produced anywhere.
There aro thousands of acres of this
kind of land which would bu cultivated,
but there is no market. Puss through
the Spallumchoen country in the summer and ride for miles through fields
of waving grain; and blush for the
contractor who says he cannot find the
wherewithal to feed Ins men.
On the subject of transport, a small
outlay in comparison with the benefit
derived would remove the obstruction
in the Lower Thompson ami onsblo
tho "Peerless'' and boats of like capacity to deliver immediately on the Hue
of construction of tlio upper sections,
products of the fertile valleys of North
and South Thompson, Spallumcheon
and Okanagon, whilst fifteen miles of
canal between head of navigation on
Spallumchoen and Okanagon lake
would give water communication almost to the Boundary line, and open
up thousands uf acres for settlement.
Instead of the country growing with
railway construction, enterprise is
stamped out, and instead of prosperous, happy homes—everywhere you
meet A Growler.

A CiTitti vou Headache.—AVhat physician lias ever discovered n cure for
headache? Kuho answers none. But
Bui-dock Blood Bitters, by their purifying, invigorating, nervine properties
afford a cure in nearly every caso. The
health-giving principles of this remedy
are luiei'tmlled by uny stuul'tr preparation
in tin* world.
Death in- the Qovfbe Pot.—The public ure cautioned against purchasing imported California ground codec. Its
cheapness is its only recommendation.
The ingredients are of the vilest description, as any one using it will discover
should ho examine tho grounds. During
the perihelia of the planets people should
be careful what they ent and drink. Don't
allow your grocer to palm off his trash
upon you, because it pays him better to
sell it than the good article. Ask for
Fell k Co.'a Coffee and take no other.*
WoitsETHAS War.—"Tho throat has
destroyed more lives than the sword," by
imprudence in eating and intemperance
in drinking! but when the health becomes
impaired the miserable disneptic may
find prompt relief in Burdock Blood
Bitters. It regulates the bowels, acts
upon the liver and kidneys, purifies the.
blood, nnd stimulates all the secretions
to a healthy action.
A Goon Filter.—To have pure water
in the house every family should have a
good filter, tho health nnd comfort depends largely upon the use of properly
filtered water. The liver is the true
filter for tho blood, and Burdock Blood
Bitters keep the liver and all tho secretory organs in n healthy condition. It is
tho grand blood purifying, liver regulating tonic.
Undbutakisij.— Having bought out
Mr. AVithrow and purchased the Hearse,
the undersigned is now prepared to parry
on tho business of undertaking at tlie furniture warehouse (Mr. Withrow's old
stand), next door to the Occident Hotel.
The Hearse will bo for hire on liberal
terms. Joii5 G. Buste,

RLTLY.
Genti-emen—
I have much pleasure in acceding to
your request conveyed to me iu your
requisition, that I would allow myself
to be nominated as a Candidate, at
the ensuing election of a: Representative to fill the seat now vacant in the
House of Commons. If I should be
elected lo fill this honorable position,
I will give my support to the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that my future course of action
may meet with the approval of my
constituents, as it did on former occasions when I 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.
\ will urge upon the Government
the necessity of placing the Dominion
Lands, now'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 woiild 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
material required for the Fisheries,
and will ask for an appropriation for
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 wfll receive
mv earnest support.
"Owing to the tiansHory state of the
Dominion, many new questions will
undoubtedly arise; in dealing with
these, I will sec that the interests of
my constituents are protected.
I am, Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,
JasS J. A. R. HOMER,

WHAT THE SHEPHERD SAW
A Tale of Four Moonlight Nights.
(Continued.)
"I ask you again," said tht duke,
coming nearer.   "Have yon seen anything strange these nights you have
been watching here 1"
"0 my lord duke! I be but the
under-Bhepherd boy, and my father he
waa but your Grace's badger, and my
mother only the cinder-woman in the
back yard!—I fall asleep when left
alone, and I see nothing at all!"
The duke grasped the boy hy the
shoulder, and, directly impending over
him, stared down upon his face. "Did
you soo .anything strange done bore
last night, I say?"
"0 my lord duke, have mercy, and
don't stab me!" cried the shepherd,
falling on his knees. "I have never
seen ynu walking here, or riding hero,
or lying in wait for a man, or dragging
a henry load!"
"H!m," said his interrogator, grimly,
relaxing his hold. "It is well to know
that you have never seen those things.
Now, which would you rather, see me
do those things now or keep a secret
all your'life fj
•'Keep a secret, my lord duke!"
"Sure you are able ?"
"Oh, your Grace—try me!"
"Very well. And now—how do
you like sheep-keeping ?"
"Not at all. 'Tis lonely work for
them that think of spirits. And I'm
badly used."
"I believe you. You aro too young
for it. I must do something to mnlte
you more comfortable. Yon shall
change this smock-frock for a real
cloth jacket, and your thick bi ■ ti for
polished shoes. And you shall bo
taught what you Have never yet heard
of, and be put to s 'not, and have
bats and balla for tho holidays, and be
made a man of. But yon must never
lay you have been a shepherd boy,
and watched on the hills at night, fur
shepherd boys arc not liked in good
company."
"Trust me, my lord duke."
"The very moment you forget yourself and speak of your shephor dayB—
this year, next year, in school, out of
school, or riding in your carriage
twenty years hence—at that moment
my help will be withdrawn, and aiunsh
down ynu come to shepherding forthwith. You have parents, I think you
say ?"
"A Widowed mother only, my lord
duke."
"I'll, provide for her, and make a
comfor.V.ble woman of hor; until you
apeak of—what I"
"Of my shepherd days, and what I
saw here."    .
"Good.   If you do apeak of it V
"Smash down she oomes to widowing forthwith!"
"That's well—very well. But it's
not enough. Come here." Ho took
the boy across to the trilithon, and
made him kneel down.
"Now, this was once a holy placo,"
resumed the duke. "An altar stood
here, erected to a venerable family of
gods, who were known aud talked of
long befere the God we know now.
So that an oath sworn there is doubly
an oath. Say this after mo:—'May
all tho host above—angels nnd arch-
angles, and principalities and powers
—punish me; may I be tormented
wherever I am—in the house or in the
garden, in the fields or in the roads,
in church or in chsipol, at home or
abroad, on land or at sea; may I be
afflicted in eating and iu drinking, in
growing up and in growing'old, in
living and dyiug. inwardly and outwardly, and for always—if I ever
speak of my life as a shepherd boy, or
of what I have seen done on this Veru-
combe Down. So be it, and so be it.
Amen and amen.' Now kiss the
■tone."
The trembling boy repeated the
words, and kissed the stone as desired.
The duke led him off by the hand.
That night he slept in Verncombe
Towers, and the next, day he was sent
away for- tuition to a remote village.
Thence he went to a preparatory establishment, and in due course to a
public school.
FOURTH NIGHT.
On a winter evening, ma-.iy years
subsequent to the above - mentioned
occurrences, the ci-devant shepherd sat
in a well-furnished office ia the north
wing of Verncombe Towers, in the
guise of an ordinary educated man of
business. He appeared at this timo as
a person of six or seveu-and-thirty,
though actually hs was several years
younger. A worn and restless glance
of the eye now and then when he
lifted his head to search for some letter or paper which had been mislaid,
seemed to denote that his mind was
not a mind so thoroughly at ease as
his surroundings might havo led an
observer to expect. His-pallor, ton,
was remarkable for a countryman. He
was professedly engaged iu writing,
but he shaped not a word, lio had
sat there for only a few minutes, when
laying down hie pen and pushing back
his chair, ho rested a hand uneasily on
each of tho chair-arms, and looked on
the floor.
Soon be arose and left the room.
His course was along a passage which
ended in a central octagonal hall;
crossing this he knocked ut a door.
A faint, though deep voice told him
to come in. The room he entered was
the library, and it was tenanted by a
single person only—his patron, the
duke.
During this long interval of years
the duko had lost all his heaviness of
build.- He was, indeed, almost a skeleton; his white hair was thin, and his
hands were nearly transparent.
"Oh, Wills!" ho murmured. "Sit
down. ' What is it ?"
"Nothing how, your Grace. Nobody
to speak of lias written, and nobody
has called."
"Ah—what then? You look concerned. "
"Old times have come to life, as
they sometimes will."
"Old times be cursed; which old
times are tliey f
"That Christmas week nineteen
years ago, when the late duchess'
cousin Frederick implored her to meet
him on Verncombe Down.   I «aw the
meeting—it was just such a night as
this—and I saw more. She met him
once, but not tho second time."
"Wills, shall I recall some words to
you—the words of an oath taken on
that hill by a shepherd boy ?''
"It is unnecessary. He has strenuously kept that oath and promise.
Since that night no sound of Ids shepherd life has crossed bis lips—even to
yourself. But you wish to hear more,
or do you not, your Grace f
"I wish to hear no more," said the
duke sullenly.
"Very well; let it be so. But a
time seems coming—may be quite near
at hand—when in spite of my lips
that episode will allow itself to go un-
divulged no longor."
"I wish to hear no more!'1 repeated
tho duke.
"You need bo under no fear of
treachery from me," said the steward
somewhat bitterly. "I inn a man to
whom you have boon kind—no patron
could havo been kinder. You have
clothed and educated me; havo installed me hers; and Ipin not unmindful. But what of it—has your Grace
gained much by my stanchness ? I
think not. Thero was groat excitement shout Captain Pentridgu's disappearance, but 1 spoke not a word.
And his body has never beon found.
For nineteen years I have wondered
what you did with him. Now I know.
A circumstance that occurred this
afternoon recalled the time to mo most
forcibly. To make it certain to myself that all was not a dream, I wont
up there with a spade; I searched, nnd
saw enough to know that a skeleton
likes there in a closed badger's hole."
"Wills, do you think the duchess
guessed ("
"She never did, I am sure, to the
day of her death."
"Did you leave all as you found it
on Mm hill V
"I did."
"What made ynu think of going
tip there this particular afternoon ?"
"What your Glare says you don't
wish to be told."
The duke was silent, and the stillness of the evening was so marked
tliat there reached their ears from the
outer air the sound of a tolling boll.
"What is that bell tolling fori"
asked tlio nobleman.
"For what I came to tell you of,
your Grace."
"You torment mo—it is your way!"
said the duke, querulously. "Who's
dead iu the village T'
"The oldest man—the old shepherd."
"Dead at last—how old is ho?"
"Ninety-four."
"And I am only seventy. I have
u. jr-and-twenty years to the good!"
"I served under that old man when
I kept sheep on Verncombe Down,
And he was on the hill that second
night, when I first exchanged words
with your Grace. Ho was on the hill
all the time; but I did not know he
was there—nor did you."
"Ah!" said the duke, starting. "Go
on—I yield the point—you may tell!"
*'I heard this afternoon that he was
at the point of death. It was that
wliich set me thinking of that past
time—and induced me to search on
the hill for what I have told you.
Coming back I heard that he wished
to see the vicar to confess to him a
secret he bad kept for hear twenty
years—'out of respect to my lord the
duke'—something that he had seen
committed ou Verncombe Down when
returning to the flock ou a December
night nineteen years ago. I have
thought it over. Ho had loft mo iu
charge that evening; but he was in
the habit of coiniug back suddonly,
lest I should have fallen asleep. That
night I saw nothing of him, though
he had promised to return. He must
have returned, and found reason to
keep in hiding. It is all plain. Tho
next tiling is that tlie vicar went to
him two hours *>go. Further than
that I have not heard."
"It is quite enuugh. I will bso the
vicar at daybreak to-morrow."
"What to do?"
"StopIns tongue for four-and-tweuty
years—till I am dead at ninety-four,
like the shepherd."
"Your Grace, while you impose
silence un me, I will not speak, even
though my neck should pay the penalty. I promised to be yours, uud I
am yours. But is this pemstence of
any avail ?"
"I'll stop his tongue, I say!" cried
the duko, with some uf his old rugged
force. "Now, you go home to bed,
Wills; and leave me to manage hiin."
Tho interview ended, and tlie steward withdrew. The night, as he had
said, was just such a one as the night
of nineteen years before, and the
events of the evening destroyed iu him
all regard for the season its one of
cheerfulness and good-will. He went
off tu his own house ou the further
verge uf the park, where he led a
lonely life, scarcely calling any man
friend. At eleven he prepared to
retire to bed, but did nut retire. He
sat down and reflected. Twelve
o'clock struck; he looked out at tho
colorless moon, and, prompted by he
knew not what, put on his hit and
emurgud into the air. Here William
Wills strolled on and on, till hu reached
tho top of Verncombe Down—a spot
ha had not vimted at tills hour of the
night during the whole nineteen years.
He placed himself, as nearly as he
could guess, on the spot where the
shepherd's hut bad stood. No lambing was in progress there now, and the
old shepherd who used him so roughly
had ceased from his labors tliat very
day. But the trilithon stood up white
as ever, and, crossing the intervening
sward, the steward placed his hand
upon tlie stone. Hestlcss and self-
reproachful as ho was, ho tould not
resist a smile as he thought of the
terrifying oath of compact, sealed by
a kiss upon tho stones of a n-.gau
temple. But ho had kept his word,
rather as a promise than as a formal
vow, with much worldly advantage tn
himself, though nut much happiness,
till increase uf yean had bred roac-
tiunnry feelings wliich led hiin to receive the news uf to-day with emotions
akin to relief,
