sometimes happens, the vanquiahml
succeeded  in grasping the reins of
^j'owflr.    l^or 'more than ten yean
we liuve had responsible government,
junior   confederation, and  'it  may
■now be worth wliilo to enquire what
the practical result has been.     Confederation jhVij to some extent, dis-
'appointed  tho  lionet and even the
'reasonable expectations of the pso-
*ple.    Everybody has been wearied
with the slowness of the Dominion
iGtoveiminont in fulfilling the prim-
'nry coilditioit tif   union.   To such
nn  extent  did  this feeling at one
'time intuiifofit itself that the "paper
bond" stood  in serious danger  of
being  broken, and tlie nnw'confederacy is popularly supposed to Have
narrowly   escaped   the loss of   its
Pacific province.     ]>ut(iiir position
and prospects have greatly improved.
Hail way   \vbvk  has   actually   been
going on  in this province for'iKoro

'a thoughtful, fair-minded ipei'sou wlio
will   deny   that  cfmfr.deration   has
been  good   for   British  Columbia.
But  the  people of  this provinco
must   not   si't (UWii content  with
.what   has   a'heady   been  achieved.
There are many things in the present
public service wliich we may reason-
' 'ably ask to have made better.     The

matters  are  of the greatest importunes if   this iSnJyiiice proposes to
take  that place in tl¥e-confederacy
which its vast wealth and resources
entitle it to occupy; and by every
means in our power we must impress
upon   our  representatives and  the

Necessity of adopting a more liberal
and  wise policy towards this important colony.    With  regard to res-

tho best men do not always come to

Whatever  wrongs  there are to be

Our constitution provides a remedy

NEW WESTMlSSTM, R 0., WEDNESDAY, JAN\JAEY *4,1882.
NUMBER 1
Mark Twain.
This'extraordinary genius was "domiciled" for a couple of weeks in Montreal, about a month ago, for the
purpose of coming within the letter of
the law In order to copyright his now
book—in which, however, the telegraph
announces his failure. During his
period of domicile, Mark was entertained by one hundred and fifty loading citizens at dinner, at the Windsor
Hotel. As was to have been expected,
he delivered a characteristic and
amusing speech, which the Toronto
(llobe, with its usual enterprise, received by telegraph as it was delivered,
and placed before' its readers in the
-morning. We can only find room for
the concluding part of it:—
"What  you  lack  in  weather you
make up in the means of grace.   This
is the ifirat time I was ever in a city
where you couldn't throw a brick without  breaking  a   church   window  (a
laugh), yet I was told that you wore
.going one more.   I said, "The scheme
is good; but where are you going to
find room?"    They  said,  "We will
build it on top of another church and
use an'elevator.1'   This shows that tlie
gift of lying ia not yet dead in the
land.    J. suppose one must come in
"the summer to get the advantage of
the Canadian scenery.      A  cabman
drove me two miles up a perpendicular hill -in a sleigh, and showed me
an  admirable mow-storm  from  the
heights of Quebec.   Tlie man was an
ass.   1 could have seen the snow-storm
as well from tho hotel window and
saved nl'y Money,     Still I may have
been   the ass myself.     There is no
telling, the thing is all mixed up in my
mind, but anyway there was an asi iu
the party, and 1 do suppose that wherever a mercenary cabman and a .gifted
rotary character are gathered together
for buEUiMi, there is bound to bean
ass In, the combination somewhere.    It
has alwiiys been no iu my experience,
and I have usually been elected, too;
but it is no matter.   I would rather
be an ass than a cabman', except in
summer;'then', with my advantages,
1 could be both.   (Cheers and laughter.1)    I satr the plains of Abraham
and the spot where the lamented Wolfe
stood when he made the memorable
remark that lie would rather be the
author   of   Gray's   Elegy than take
Quebec..  Hut why did nVfcay so rash
a thing?   It was because he supposed
there was going to be an international
copyright.     (Laughter)    < ffcheTwhre,
there woirld.tw no money in it.   I was
also shown the spot.where Sir William
IMiii.s stood when he said ho would
rather talie a nalk than take two Que-
bees, and he took the walk. (Renewed
laughter.)    I have looked with emotion here ipyour city upon tfc« Monument which makes forever memorable
the spot where Horatio Nelson didn't
staim, when he fell. I have seen tlie cab
which Cliamplsiii employed when he
arrived  overland,at Quebec;  I nave
seen the horse which Jacques Cartier
rode when he discovered  Montreal
I have used them both.   I will never
do it again.    Yes; I have seen all the
historical places;   the localities have
been pointed out to me where the
scenery is warehoused for the season.
My sojourn has been to my moral Ami
intellectual profit.     1 have behaved
with propriety and discretion.   I have
meddled nowhere but in the election.
I am used to voting, for I live in a
town where, if yon may judge, by the
local prints, there are only two con
spicuous industries, committing burglaries  and  holding elections, and I
like to keep my hand in.    So I voted
a good d«*.l jrsre.    Where so ninny of
the guests are French the propriety
will be vicojiftfeed of my making a
portion of my speech in the beautiful
language, iii order that I may be understood.     I speak French with tvtn-
idiiy and no^flowingly, except when
excited.    When using that language I
have often noticed that I have hardly
ever been mistaken for a Frenchman,
except perhaps by horses—never, I believe, by pepple.   I had hoped that
mere French constructiont with English words, would answer, but this Is
not the case!   I tried it at a gentleman's house at Quebec, and it would
not work.    The maid-servant.asked,
"What would, MonsieUr r    1 said,
"Monsieur so-and-so, is he with himself."    (Cheers and laughter.)    She
did not understand.    I said, "Is It
that he is still not returned from his
house of merchandise,1'   She did not
understand tliat either.    I said, "He
will desolate himself when he Isarus
that his friend American was arrived
here, and he hot with himself to shake
him at the hand."   (Uproarious laugh-
tor.)   She did not,even understand
that. I don't know why, hut she didn't,
and she lost h'ei' temper besides. Somebody in the rear called out, "Qui est
done la," or words to that effect.   She
said, ''Cost imfouj'/aud shut the door
on me.    (Iioiid • and prolonged laughter.)   Perhaps she was right, but how
did she ever find that out, for she had
nover seen ine before till that moment,
But, as I have already intimated, I
will close this oration with a few sentences  in the I ranch language.     I
have not ornamented them. I have not
burdened theni with flowers of rhetoric, for to my mind that literature is
best and most endearing which is characterized 'by a,,pobla simplicity.   J'ai

About Ourselves.
In futfimcnt of n promise niado
some time ago, wo present our readers to-day with n new paper. Jt is
a continuation of the Dominion
Pacific Herald in an enlarged and
improved form, bub under n new
name—ft name which wo believe
more concisely than any otlior expresses tho design of the journal. In
the salutatory article, published nn
assuming control of the Herald, some
fifteen months ago, tTie announcement was made that we had determined to publish a thoroughly independent journal, and one which
might fairly aspire to become the
recognized organ of public opinion
on the Mainland; That determination was reached after mature reflection, and with a full knowledge
of the immediate pecuniary sacrifice
involved. We wore perfectly aware
that the Government patronage
which the Herald then enjoyed
would cease as soon as it became
independent of party, for tho reputation of the Walkem Government
is not such as to bear independent,
outspoken criticism. But the position of a journalist who dtt.ro only
express such sentiments as are inspired by a scheming premier is too
parrot-like to attract any person
who holds his manhood worth preserving. The Government advertising was withdrawn, as wo anticipated, and given to an obscure sheet
as the price of its slavish support;
but we are gratified to be in a position to state that the substantial
encouragement and patronage received from every part of tho province have exceeded even our
highest expectations. The favor of
the people is much more grateful
than tho favor of tho Government,
and without doubt it will eventually prove much more profitable
also. Tlie success wjiich has attended
the publication of an independent
journal has been so complete as to
convince us that we did not misjudge the public opinion of this
province. Looking at tho press of
the country from an impartial standpoint, one must perceive that party
and sectional strife has greatly impaired its usefulness. When public
journals allow themselves to become
so warped and entangled as to suppress truth and disseminate falsehood
in the supposed interests of party,
their "usefulness is gone," and the
best interests of the people are iu
danger. Jt is, therefore, intended
that the British Columbian shall
pursue- tho same independent course
which characterised tlie/SmttWdnriiig
the last fifteen months. No considerations of gain shall tempt us to
swerve from this purpose. In its
enlarged form tho new paper will be
able more fully to fill the important
position to which it aspires as the
leading journal in British Columbia. At the same time thero will
be additional space at tho disposal of
advertisers who wish to avail themselves of our circulation, which is
now very much more than double
that of any other newspaper on the
Mainland. We hope our subscribe! s
may be pleased with the new paper,
and that the time may not he far
distant when the circumstances of
the Mainland will justify a still
larger paper—and a daily. When
that time arrives the British Columbian' will not ho wanting in tho
energy and enterprise necessary to
iiitet the requirements of the
country.
vincial revenue — his friend Mr,
DeCosmos and himself having succeeded iu making tho work Hunt
clear. But what is tho fact? First
and last, between bungled contracts
and bud bargains, nob nitieh less than
a quarter of a million of our revenue
has been sunk in it! Nor is that all.
It now appears that about one hundred thousand dollars more will have
to go to make up for Mr. Wulkeiu's
blunder in buying bad cement five
years before it was wanted. What
the next demand shall be it is impossible to conjecture; but of this
we feel assured, that if the Province
does not have to make it the round
five hundred thousand dollars beforo
the dock is completed, there will be
reason for thankfulness. Nor is it
at all likely that tho dock will cease
to be a charge upon tho Provincial
revenue when completed. Wc look
•forward with almost absolute certainty to a standing item in the
Estimates of many thousands for
maintenance, ifcc., ifco. In short, it
is destined to be a "white elephant,"
and a dear one at that. The attenuated revenue of the Province can
ill afford theso repeated drains upon
it.
In Doubt.
Tho Nanaimo Free Press appears
to be in some doubt about the terms
upon wliich tho C. P. It. Syndicate
may have undertaken the construction of the Island railway. It deprecates tho handing over unconditionally of all thceoal lands of tho Island to what it calls "a gigantic monopoly," und it claims that, in any
event, "any bargain of this nature
should be submitted to the people of
this (Vancouver) Island for ratification." We do not think an unconditional surrender of so large and
valuable an area of laud could be
justified. It is difficult to conceive
any association of business men locking up these lands against settlement
and development, But still, power
to do anything of tho kind should
not he put iu their hands. To lock
up the lands in question might easily
inflict an injury upon tho country
for which tho little bit of railway
would constitute no compensation.
But, surrounded by proper safeguards, we cannot see any great objection to the transfer, as it matters
but little whether these lands shall
be administered by tho Railway Syndicate or the Government, so long
as they are efficiently administered
upon liberal principles, calculated to
promote settlement and development.
As regards ratification by the people,
we are disposed to agree with our
contemporary as to the principle;
but we are not able to see how or
why the reference should bo made
only to the people of tho Island section. The Province is one. The
hind belongs to the Province, and
the work itself is a Provincial one.
Any reference should,' therefore, bo
to the whole people, through the
constitutional channel.
Thai Pesky Dry-Dock.
It will not be forgotten that the
dock now in course of construction
at EsquimaH was to have stood on
its own bottom, so to speak. It was
not to have become, either in whole
or in part, a charge upon the Provincial revenue. It will also be
within the recollection of many that,
in order to obtain the endorsement
of the Legislature, the present Premier, finding Mainland members disposed to be recalcitrant, stood up in
liii place in the House and gave his
golemn assurance that not a dollar
would be asked for from the Pro-

Upon the receipt of definite information of Dr. McTunes having
resigned his sent in the Commons
and accepted one in the Senate, Mr,
Kobson was at once put forward by
his friends to (ill the vacancy thus
created. Having learned, however,
that Mr. Homer was willing to accept the nomination, and being
requested by Rome of his friends to
do so, Mr, Itobson immediately and
most cheerfully withdrew in favor of
that gentleman. A requisition, asking
Mr. Homer to stand, was circulated
and has been very numerously and
influentially signed; in fact it now
bears a very large majority of the
electors in this precinct, and from
what we hear and know of the rural
parts of the District, Mr. Homer's
election may bo considered fully
assured. Indeed it is difficult to
conceive of any one being so foolhardy as to attempt Co oppose him.
The election may, therefore, be
regarded as being practically settled,
although, so far, there is no intelli
gence respecting the issue of the
Writ, Referring to Mr, Robson's
position, many of his friends in the
District consider that Ins services
will be more needed in the Provincial Parliament, and it is understood
that ho is reserving himself for tho
approaching general election, when
he will doubtless be heard from.

of all. Tho Club is to be congratulated upon the complete success of its
first effort to afford a roally enjoyablo

provide a favorite promenade fur bur

I wrote the article in the Herald of
tho 24th Dec, 1881, in answer to an
attack by J. K. Sitter, of the Mainland Guardian, on the Clergy and
Magistrates,anent tho Licensing Court,
yet I don't consider myself the thief
of J. K. Suter's virtuous character,
and if Mr, Bole's client has at length
come tn the conclusion that it is gone,
he might by searching find it nearer

Suustastial Improvements. —Repeatedly have wo had occasion during
the past few months to note tho progress of local improvements, not the
least, of which has been the splendid
now store built and occupiod by Mr.
A. M. Herring. In another column
will bo found an advertisement inviting tenders for a double two-story brick
building on Columbia street. That has
the true ring of solid progress about
it. We were glad when the Smeaton
property fell into the hands of one ao
able Mid willing tu improve it lis Mr.
Datum is. The grading of the site, no
light job, is nearly completed, and our
citizens will have tho satisfaction of
seeing a structure erected upon it
which will be a credit to the town. The
attention of contractors is especially
directed to Mr. Doane'sadvertisoniBiit.
Mild Weather.—Our readers in thu
east will be surprised to learn that
thero baa been no ica on tho Frasur
River this winter. At no time have
we had more than 'J inches of snow,
and that remained only a day or two.
There h not a partiule of frost in the
ground, and no snow anywhere to'be
seen except on tho mountain ranges.

Aquatic Sport.—Writing under dato
Nov. 20th, tho London correspondent
of the Toronto Globe siiyi:—There is

May next, or possibly, upon tho mutual
agreement of the two men, later in
the year, for 11, Watson Boyd, of Mid-
dleburough, has accepted Haitian's
challenge to row him for £200 to £1,000

London paper, we regret to learn of

of Mr. S. H. Webli of this city. Deceased was in the service of the Government of Victoria, Australia, and

A Dear Place.— The exponso of

expensive in Now York as in London,
and yet it has not half the population.

Most Extraordinary Result.—
During the celebration of high muss in
the church of the Holy Cross, Warsaw,
a man who was seized while in tho act
of picking a pocket, raised the cry of
tire in order tu efl'ect his escape. The
consequent was a panic, resulting in
40 persons being killed and 00 injured
—mostly women. The culprit being a
Jew, a serious riot ensued, and many
Jewish houses were sacked.
Lrvjav Scene.—On Thursday, as a
band of cattle wore being driven, one
of tho animals] a splendid steer, breaking away from the band, made a dash
through some of the principal streets,
clearing them as it wont. The drovers
finally succeeded in inducing this lively
blade to rejoin the band, and they were
coralltid for the ntmeo. On the following day the drovers took the precaution to make several ropes fast to the
sportive individual, iu order that his
pranks might bo restrained. Hut ho
soon broke away, and, outrunning the
swiftest horses, rushed up Columbia
street, where several parties narrowly
oscaped being tossed on his horns, one
man only saving himself by adroitly
doubling on tho infuriated bullock and
finding concealment behind a friendly
Christmas tree. The animal was ultimately captured in the suburbs and reduced to a quiescent condition.

we send out a very largo number of extra copies of the BRITISH COLUMBIAN. Those who receive them aro

The Quebec Elections,
The general result of the late elections in the Province of Quebec has
boen to givo Premier Chapleau a majority of over 30 in a full house of 05.
It was rumored that the Reformers
would throw up the sponge and retire
from the house, which report drew
forth the following note from their
plucky leader to the editor of the
Montreal Herald:—
My Dear Sir,—I hope that no ono
will believe that tho members of the
Reform party, who have been honored
with the confidence of their constituents, dream of resigning their seats.
Why should wo resign ?
Because we are only thirteen or
fourteen membors in a House of sixty-
five'/
Wo were only nine, at one time, in
Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition.
We do not acknowledge ourselves
beaten, Tho time will soon come
when the province will remember,
with regret, the second of December,
eighteen hundred and eighty-one, and
then we shall be found at our post.
I remain yours truly,

THE ENCHANTED PRINCESS
A dens», pathless forest—a forest
not pleasantly composed of stately oaks
and graceful btechesor feathery birches,
but inada up entirely, as far tts'-tfcs eye
can reach, of one kind of "Kfirt alone,
sombre and gloomy 'pines, that spread
a black canopy nbore, rtndored still
more black iu contrast with the thick
carpot of dazzling snow beneath them.
For it is mid-winter, and in this vnst
deserted region, in the uncultivated
wilds of Central Germany, there is
nothing to be seen on the face of the
earth but the interminable waste of
olive-green pine branches, 4ho monotonous repetition of their straight, slender stems, and the desolate pall of untrodden whiteness below them. Nut
a path, not;« track—save here and
there where the f wot fall of some silent,
prowling beast of prey—some wandering, half-famished wolf probably—has
left a too suggestive trace iu the snow
of his undesirable proximity.
What a cheerless scene in which to
find ones-self well-nigh benighted on
the short■ grey afternoon of a December day! And what a precious idiot
was I—George Wilde Greville, Esrp,
of tho county of Hampshire, England—
to have ruli my head -into such ith extremely unpleasant position. To what
height and breadth and depth of folly
will not tho ardent love of pedestrian
touring, which is inherent in the youth
of Great Britain, lead Its devoted and
pig-headed victims! That was what-I
was saying to myself as I floundered
through tlie snow in that ever-to he-
detested German forest. What had
possessed me that I should have fled
from homo—that I should have turned
my back upon Christmas joys, somewhat tame it is true, but still safe and
secure in their Mature—in order to embark on a walking tour iu the middle of
the German Empire! I must have
been mad, I think; however, here I
was, and the question was, how was I
to get out of it? "Oh!" said I to myself, with the bitterness of despair,
"if I ever find my way out of Ahis
abominable pine-forest—if ever I return
alive, uneaten by wolves, and unstarved
and unfrozen to death—to the haunts
of civilization, then good-bye walking-
tours for ever! I will nofer—never-
never— h
Hush! what is that? Just as j was
registering these mental vows, with a
furious energy -bom of my despair, to
ijnyself, a strange sound struck upon
any ears—a small, piteous cry, uttered
from the density of the pine-stems in
front of me. A shudder struck through
my veins. Was it a wolff I stood
still and listened. There it was again,
right i» front of me. No, surely that
Was not the cry of an animal, it was too
pitiful and too human for that; it
sounded rather like the wail of a woman or a child. I pressed forward
hurriedly through tho floury snow,
which fortunately in that dead stillness
had not drifted, but lay flat and smooth
at a uniform depth of about six inches.
"Well," I said to myself, with a
groan, "if I come upon another lost
wanderer from the high road, and that
a half-starved woman or child, X shall
certainly have had the bad luck materially to increase my present difli-
eultiesl"
A moment later I came in view of a
new and unaccustomed object. A
small boy sat in the middle of tho
wilderness, crying lustily. His back
was turned towards me; a red worsted
comforter was wound a great many
times round his neck, and his elbows
were elevated into an attitude which
indicated that his fists were well rammed into his eyes.
Here was my starved child! Should
I have to divide my last biscuit with
him, and give up the half-dozen drops
of brandy at the bottom of my llask,
hi order to save this unknown baby
from an early grave 1 I came nearer;
my heart rose. He was crying—nay,
howling vigorously; but surely my
worst feai-3 might vanish. Ho was
certainly not starving. So fat a child
I have never, I think, had the pleasure
of encountering either beforo or after.
Ho was literally as broad as ho was
long; his back presented a wide and
tightly - stretched surface of brown
merino; his legs stuck out, strong as
young ptjl!.\rds, bare and red before
him; his fists were like a couple of
dumplings; and when ho turned his
round, red, chubby face in amazement
up to mine, his small, snobby features
were almost lost iu tho puddings of
fat in which they were embedded. I
regret to state that, with the consciousness of that ono biscuit and those six
drops of brandy that were left in my
wallet, I felt in a more charitable
frame of mind towards that howling
Infant by reason of the corpulence and
tho well-fed look of him.
"Hallo !*'—an Englishman always
■ays hallo in moments of embarrassment.
The urchin left off crying, and looked
np at me with an expression of rapt
awe.
"Are you Sant Clam)'' he inquired
in German.
I was a goud Gorman scholar, my-
self, so I had no difficulty in conversing with him.
"No; who the mischief is he?" I
said, half laughing.    "What is your
name, my young friend Y*
(iFritz."
Now Fritz is not a distinctive name.
There aro certainly as many Frits.es in
Germany as there were pine-trees in
that horrible forest. The answer did
not impart much information. I proceeded to question hi nn
"Are you hungry f
"No."
"Aro you cold?"
"No.'r
"Have ynu lost your w&y ?■■'
"Oh,  hoi"   "Then you must live
somewhere.    Where do ynu live ?'v
Tho   child  gave  a  comprehensive
wave of- his fat hand that seemed to
include all four points of tho compass
in its sweep.
"Over"there*!'1 ho said, vaguely
"Is it far from* her* ?" I inquired,?
eagerly.
"No; quite close.
My heart gave a great bound of re-
ltef and delight.
"Then' for Heaven's sake take mo
there ai once;-' I cried, "for I htive
lost my w»y in'thls detestable forest!
I don't know where togofof a night's
shelter, and I have had nothing to eat'
for twenty-four hourt, and J am perishing with cold and fatigue, '■'   X poured
forth my little'stefry breathlessly. 'All
at once this small child had becqme,
not a burden, but a means of salvatiuh
to me. I stretched forth my hand and
took hold of the fat, pudgy fist. "Take
me there, little Fritz, at once; and get
me-fuod, and shelter, and warmth, for
'the love of Heaven!"
The boy seemed to understand; he
rose, or rather tumbled up, upon his
feet, and keeping hold of my hand,
trotted on .iierrmy:by n.y side In and
out of the '.trees hi a wonderful way,
first Ho'f he "right, then to the left, in a
ttienher which left no doubt as to his
being porfectly 'at home, and able tu
find his way amongst the monotony of
their apparently endless sameness. To
me they wero fac-siuiilies of each other;
hundreds and thousands of straight
shafts, as alike each other as shelled
peas; but Fritz, evidently by some
mysterious power, was able to discriminate amongst them, and could discern
every tree'from its neighbor.
'' What were you crying for ?" I asked
presently, for the sake of something
to say.
"Because of not finding any red
berries for Sant Claus," answered tho
child. "The snow in too thick, and I
have no'berries for to-morrow!"
"Why do you want berries to-morrow? and who is this Claus whom
you took ine for?" I asked, faintly interested.
"DotiH ycm^kimw that to-morrow is
Christmas-eve, and that Sant Claus is
the patron saint of Christmas; and if
I have no rod berries to hang up, then
Sant Claus will not bring any presents
bh Christinas morning?"
"No, I never heard all that,*' I
answered.
"Thou what a dunce you must be!:
replied Fritz, with conviction.
I 'laughed.
"T>0 yon want presents so very
intUch, little Fritz!" I aiikfetl, thinking
to -myself how gladly I would supply
the place of the capricious saint, whose
favors had to be won through red
berries, to my little guide, who had
helped mo in my great trouble.
"Oh! it is not for myself for whom
I want tho presents; it is for poor
Nella, who cannot get berries for herself."
"And Nella is your little sister, I
suppose ?"
"Oh! no; she is not little at all; and
she is not my sister."
"No? What tShcn — your cousin
perhaps ?"
"No; poor Nella is not a child, alio
is quite big."
"Why do you call her .poor?" I
asked.
The boy put his finger up and pressed
it to his lips.
"I must net say," he answered,
rather oddly. "Perhaps you will see
her; but you cannot speak to her; she
will not understand you."
"She is not German, then, nor
English? But there are other languages, little Fritz, and possibly 1 may
be able to find the one that your poor,
big Nella speaks."
"Nella  speaks no language," was
this odd little boy's most singular rejoinder;  "and if you try, he will be
angry."
"Whois/iei"
"You will sec," said Fritz, mysteriously.
In spit* of my hunger and my
fatigue, I own that I began to feel
curious.
I now looked about for the cottage
to which I imagined my small friend
was leading me. Jty his apparel and
manners t judged him to be some
woodcutter's child of slightly superior
education to his fellows. Perhaps his
father was a self-taught genius, and
had imparted to little Fritz Ms shrewd
and intelligent way of talking. I expected nothing more, therefore, than
a woodman's cottage, or at most a
small farmstead, and felt thankful in-
need for the hope of shelter at either.
Imagine, then, what was my amazement when, in « clearing in the woods,
a large gray stone building suddenly
came into view, about the height and
dimensions of a club-house in Pall
Mall! Anywhere it would have been
a fine large house, but here amongst
the desolate wastes of tlie pine-forests
it became a palace. I stopped aghast!
—amazed! -breathless! Was I tho
victim of some delusion—some hallucination ? I could hardly believe my
eyes.
"This is where we hvs," said Fritz,
simply, by my side.
"This!" I gasped. "Why, it is a
palace!"
"My grandfather is the Count of
Errenholt," said the fat child, with a
sort of dignity that was amusing from
such a source, "and this is' tiis Schloss."
We drew nearer to the Schioss," as
Fritz called it; and I was so astonished
at finding so large a house planted in
the very midst of this wild and desolate land, I almost forgot how tired
a.id hungry I was.
I observed, however, as I approached
that the castle, though large, was by
no means in good repair; one end of
it, in fact, being absolutory in ruins,
and many of the windows of tho side
which seemed to be inhabited wero
blocked up by rough boards nailed
across their gaping apertures. There
wore plenty of evidences of past grandeur in tho heavy carved stone mul-
lions and the many stacks of gray
chimneys'; but there were also abundant evidences of present poverty.
There was no appearance of garden or
plcpsure grounds of any kind about
the house; the gray walls rose straight
and bare out of the carpet of unbroken
snow that surrounded them; there
was not even a swept clearing about
the heavily-carved oaken door; tho
snow had beaten itself up upon the
very doorstep. This imparted a chill
sensation of inhnspitality to the fine
old mansion. I felt instinctively that
there would be no warm welcome for
a wayfarer nere.
Fritz stretched himsolf up on his
little toes, and lifted the heavy iron
knocker with ait his strength. A
shuffling of feet' inside, a creaking of
bars and' bolts,- and the door opened
cautiously, and a very old" and evil-
faced man appeared in the doorway.,
H*o spoke to Fritz in si patpis which I
could not understand, and looked at
ine with evident suspicion. Little
Fritz Was not minded to abandon tho
cause of tho. lost traveller lie had rescued. Heedless of the old servant's,
grumbling objections, he took hold of
my hand once more, ,  .      ., ■■',
"Com*;" he said, "and I willlend
you to my grandfather, the Herr
Graf."
