Bntunliiy Morning, Sept. 1, 1883.
Strange Surmislngs.
Wo are inclined to beliovo the
opposition organs are laboring under
a most serious misapprehension with
respect to the work of last'session.
Thoy will undoubtedly claim to be
honest in their representations; bnt
if the plea of honesty holds good
these organs seem to us greatly in
need of advice and instruction. It
is surely a great mistake to imagine
that the lands granted to the Kootenay oompany, the V. I. Eailway
company and tho federal government
will be lost to tho province. It
cannot ho possible, as represented
by tbo organs, that theso lands are
to be dug up and carried away by
tbe persons into whose possession
they were given. Tho legislature
could not havo contemplated such a
result; nnd if that is really tho dp-
sign of the companies, energetic
measures should be taken by the
oxecutivo to prevent theoi fi
getting away with our property in
such a summary manner. When
those bills were under discussion
they met tho approval of the Columbian because wo supposed tho
provincial government would continue to receive revenues from these
lands nnd count them as part of tho
province. But if they are to bo
absolu«ely carried boyond onr boundaries, as tho organs seem to havo
discovered, we shall not hesitate to
express our indignation. ' There are
3,500,000 acres at least of good
farming lauds in Peace river district.
Of this 3,500,000 acres, 500,000 aro
ceded in lieu of shortage in tho
Vancouver Island railway belt, and
3,000,000 iu lieu of shortage in the
mainland belt. Now, if it was understood (and of this thero seems to
bo no donb't) that we were to give
the full 40 miles of land in the railway belt, and that those lands wore
to be of fair quality, aud that shortage was to bo made up from other
parts of the provinco, it would ap
pear that we have granted to the
Dominion no lands wliatover boyond
what they could legally claim. That
boing tho case, no responsibility can
rest upon the provincial government
on account of the Peace river transaction. The lands granted on -Vancouver Island go into the hands of
tho company constructing tho island
railway. Tho British Columbia
govornment set aside those very
lands for that very purpose in 1873,
and they hnve never been appropriated for anything else. Tho present
government cannot be made responsible for that. We have nothing remaining but tho Kootenay matter and
tho dry-dook. ]t may fairly bo questioned whether the government
should have given away 750,000
acres of land in Kootenay to secure
the opening up of that country. Wo
believe the transaction will vory
greatly benefit this.province:, the
organs may hold a different opinion,
and hold it honestly, but then they
would be flying in tho face of then-
own party loaders, Bnt the dry-
dock 1 If there ovor was any question thoroughly settled by publio
opinion in British Columbia it is
this vory question. Wo do not beliovo there is a person in the province, outsido of n few political hacks,
who has not long ngo como to' tho
conclusion that the dry-dock should
bo got rid of, even at n considerable
sacrifice. It wna draining the lifo-
blood out of the province; it was
bungled from beginning to end; it
was costing more for construction
and materiul than had over beon
dreamed of; and no person seemed
able to predict when it would bo
completed. Not only have the provincial government succeeded in relieving the province of this incubus,
but they have secured for the province every cent of money that has
beon expended on it. If the dry-
dock had been handed over as a freo
gift to tho Dominion we believe the
aot would have received the approval of ninny intelligent British Columbians; and tho excellent bargain
made, by wliich the province recoives
some $300,000 for tho dock, meets
with universal approbation. When
completed it is vory doubtful if tho
dock would pay. The provinco will
receive all the advantage of its construction and operation, while the

Dominion must tako all-tbo financial risks. But the organs are evidently laboring undor tho impression
that the dry-dock is to be taken
clean out of the province. Indeed)
a perusal of their recent declarations
might lead one to miHpect that Sir
Alexander Campbell hns actually
got it in his pocket and intends to
havo it orcctcd nt Ottnwa-as a memento of his visit to this country!
We hopo there is no ground for such
an impression. But it might be
just as well in future to watch federal officials who come here. It in
not quite safe to have Kootenay
bills, and dry-docksj and jnilwny
belts, and things lying roVna loose.
Tho timo may como when theso things
would he useful, and thb province
must not permit them to be smuggled off. Possibly tho vigilance of
the organs may not be nn unmitigated evil after all.
Reader, If you suffer from ony disorder
of the Liver, Stomach, Bowels, Kidneys,
Skin, or Blood, try Burdock Blood Bitters, Nature's specific medicine for noting on tliose organs for the outlet of disease 25,000 bottles sold iu the last

It excites expectoration and causes the

changes the secretions and purifies the
blood; hi-uls tho irritated parts; gives
strength tq the digestiva organs; brings
the liver-to its proper action, and imparts
strength to tho wholo systoin. „ Such is
THE IMMEDIATE AND SATISFACTORY EFFECT that it is warranted to break up the
most distressing cough in a few. hours'
time, if not of too long standing. It is
warmnted to give entike satisfaction,
even IK the meat confirmed cases of Consumption ! It is warranted not to produce

many deaths by Consumption, when Allen's Lrxa Balsam will prevent it if

Tbe Hallway Bills.
Tuesday's Cobnist contains what
seems intended as a reply to the
article which lately appeared in. the
Columbia* respecting the proposed
disallowance of the bills granting
railway charters from the 0. P. K.
to the XT. S. boundary. But the
Colonist does not fairly meet the
issue. In the first place it makes
no reference whatever to its former
statement that Sir Alexander Campbell's utterances had satisfied the
promoters of these railways. That
statement was absolutely untrue,
and we cannot entirely resist the
suspicion that it was made for the
express purpose of endeavoring to
accomplish the defeat of the scheme.
The people of Viotoria are manifestly opposed to railway connection
between the sound and the mainland of British Columbia, and they
have been endeavoring to furnish
Sir Alexander with arguments and
pretexts upon which to recommend
the disallowance of the bills. They
teem to have discovered in these
■ projected lines a possible diversion
of trade from themselves, and their
commercial policy has always been
to oppose any project which does
not originate or end ia Victoria.
The Colonist, however, makes an
attempt to show the harm that would
come to this province from the con-
struction of these railways. It
says:
The Columbian asks in what way the
boundary lines would damage the province! We answer, in diverting its trade
to the terminus of tho Northern Pacific
railway, and making every port and
town in the province subsidiary to the
interests of that gigantic corporation.
Happily the construction of tno Island
railway will rescue the country from
the blighting effects of a -competition
whioh would havo proved ruinous in its
effects, and will plant the terminus of
the Canadian Pacific railway firmly on
British Columbia soil. Therefore, the
boundary line railway bills need not
again occupy the attention of the legislature to the exclusion of other and
practical work.
Now this is the purest moonshine.
How does the Colonist know that a
line to the boundary would divert
trade from this province to the
Northern Pacific railway! We assert
that the diversion of trade would be
exactly in the opposite direction.
The 0. P. E. has the shortest line
across the continent, and its grades
are less than those of any other
line. It is in a position, therefore,
to compete successfully with any
other transcontinental road. If there
is to be competition for the trade of
this coast between the C. P. K. and
the N. P, E., our own railway has
certainly nothing to fear. We have
already stated that surveyors are
locating a railway line from the
boundary, on the American side, to
connect with the Northern Paoifio,
and we have reason to believe that
that railway will go on. Now, if
the Colonist will look fairly at the
situation it must perceive that this
branch will act as an important
feeder to the Northern Pacific, and
that it will surely draw trade from
the Canadian side of the boundary
unless another outlet is provided.
From Point Roberts to Sumas, on
the south sido of the Fraser, there
is an extensive area of as good land
as can be found in British Columbia. Much of this land is already
settled and under cultivation,' and
what remains is being taken up
rapidly. The American railway
will become tho market for nearly
all this region, because it will be
more accessible than the Canadian
Pacific. Farmers usually go to market in their own conveyances, nntl
a few miles extra drive makes very
little difference to the cost of carriage. If they come to the 0. P.
R. it will be necessary for them to
cross the river. Thia involves two
transhipments, wharf and ferry dues,
and additional cartage on this side.
It is the opinion of all intelligent
farmers with whom we have convened on the south side of the
river that, under the circumstances,
the great bulk of the trade of that
region would fall to the Northern
Paoifio railway unless railway facilities are supplied on this side of the
line. Where the American railway
reaches the boundary, towns will
spring up ou both sides of the line,
and. there will be the central market
It ia for the purpose of securing
this trade for British Columbia and
for the 0. P. R. that a line from
here to lhe boundary has heen projected. In view of the construction
of a railway south of tho boundary,
this line becomes • necessity, or our
trade south of the river will sorely
go into other channels. We are
afraid tbe Colonist has no just conception of the magnitude and im
porUnoe of that trade. It does not
seem  to be »ware that the region
lying between Fraser river and the
boundary is rapidly filling up, that
within the last two months over 50
new locations .have been taken up,
and that before the railway could be
completed it will be the most populous and flourishing agricultural
settlement in British Columbia. The
trade of that region is worth looking after; and notwithstanding the
Colonist's opinion, wo assert that it
is in imminent danger of being lost
unless adequate facilities are provided for bringing it north. The
Colonist says:
It is absurd for our contemporary to
eite tho Island railway as a precedent
for tho allowance of the boundary railways. The Island railway is essential
to the prosperity of the C. P. railway.
It rune entirely through British soil, hns
no connection with any foreign line, and
places within easy reach as a terminus
one of the finest harbors in the world.
Besides, the building of tho island rail-
way is not duo to the grace or magnanimity of the mainland at all.
Who ever cited the island railway
as a precedent for the allowance of
the boundary railways! Certainly
the Columiiian did not, nor did it
claim tho island railway ns a result
of tbe magnanimity of the mainland. The Columbian merely stated
tbat tho mainland had placed no
obstacle in the way of the island
railway, although it was culled upon,
as part of the province, to contribute a large quantity of public land
as a subsidy to a line which would
never benefit it to the extent of one
farthing. When wo proposed to
build a road on the mainland for the
purpose of developing the district
lying south of the river, the people
of Victoria and the Colonist rush
to the minister of justice and tell
him it will never do—it will divert
trade from the C. P. R. and ruin
the province —• and the Colonist
boldly assorts that, upon reflection,
tho promoters of the scheme are
satisfied to let it drop! With as
much truth we might assert that
tho people of Victoria, upon reflection, nre satisfied to abandon
the island railway. The Colonist
has not successfully controverted
any of the positions taken by this
journal on the boundary railway
question, aud we believe they cannot be controverted. It is true
enough that the success "i the 0.
P. R. is of very great importance
to the people of this province. But
the boundary railway cannot possibly interfere with that success, and
it is regarded as an enterprise of
very great value to the locality
through which it would pass. We
can find no tangible pretext upon
whioh the Dominion government
may disallow these bills. If they
are disallowed the whole mainland
will regard the act as hostile to its
interests.
If you would escape the ravages of that
scourgo of the Summer season, Cholera
Morbus, keep Dr. Fowler's Extract of
Wild Strawberry at hand for use. In
tbat and all other forms of Bowel Com-
plaint, it is infallible.

by this plan wns good, and tho potatoes aro clonn nnd beautiful, and

Can Alius.—A correspondent of tlie
Chicago Tribune, who claims to bo
attached to tho president's party, Bonds
a remarkable despatch from tho Yellowstone. Ho says otio object of tho
president's trip to this, coast is to complete arrangements for the annexation
of British Columbia. Tlie schemo, he
says, has long boen in contemplation,
and is fully deoided upon, If wo had

The Maple Ridge Muddle.
For some months past thoro has
been trouble at Maplo Ridgo respecting the disposal of the $1000 appropriated by tho government for expenditure in thnt municipality. Maple
Ridcre has the misfortune to bo a much-
divided community. One party wants
ouo thing and tho other wants another,
and both seem anxious to administer
tho expenditure of publio appropriations. Some time ago tho conflict of
opinion seemed bo serious that the
government were asked to send mi
engineer for the purpose of making an
examination so as to dotermine where
road work Bhould bo dono. Tho govornment sont Mr. Turner up for that
purpose, and, noting upon his report,
thoy notified tho municipal council
that tho §1000 wns available and would
bo paid ovor conditional upon its expenditure on tlio rond recommended
by tlio engineer. The council thereupon declared that they would not
accept the money upon nny such condition. A petition was gotten up asking tlint tho appropriation bo placed
ns recommended by the engineer, and
another petition forthwith mado its
appearance asking something very different—und several of the ratepayers
signed built these petitions. The govornment became thorough/ puzzled ns
to tho proper course of action. It
wus finally decided thnt n vote should
be tnkon as the only feasible menns of
ascertaining what thb wishes of the
people woro. A man might sign two
conflicting petitions, but ho could not
very woll voto yea and nay on tho
sumo question. On the 17th inst. tho
municipal clerk, Mr. Murray, was requested fo givo notice of a meeting
for that purpose. Wo believe the
meeting in to be hold to-day. "Tlio
people aro to be asked to sny whether
they wish tho S1000 to bo spent on tho
road laid out by Mr. Turner, or
whether it should bo handed ovor to
tho municipal council unconditionally
to bo spent as thoy think fit. All
ndult male ratepayers or occupiers of
lund within the municipality nro competent to voto. Wo hope tho result
will bo satisfactory. If it is not so
tho responsibility will certainly rest
with tho people themselves.

(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
On Saturday last J. B. Jackaon,
recently from tho provincial penitentiary, and Andrew Brandt, woro
brought before W. H. Lnduer, J.
Kirkland and F. Page, Esqs., on a,
chargo of stealing salmon from Mr.
E. A. Wndhnina' cannery. From tho
■ovidonco it appears that Mr. Wad-
hams for somo timo suspected that
fish woro being taken from his scow.
Circumstances pointed, in tho direction of thoso men, who woro iu Mr.
Wndhams' employ, nnd they wore
dotccted. Tho mode of procedure
wns to go to tho scow into which tlio
fish had boen counted and transfer
thonco to their boat a certain number
of salmon boforo going out for tho
night's work. When tho boats camo
in next morning theso mon had somo
40 salmon, whilo tho others had only
an average uf 7. Tho ovidonco was
conclusive, and tho prisoners electing
to be dealt with summarily, wore fined
$50 each with two months in gaol,
another month to bo added in enso the
fino is not paid. They wore lodged
in the lock-up by Constable Green mid
sent up to Now .Westminstor on board
the Nellie on Monday. Jackson is
said to hnvo token quito kindly to tho
situation, and warmed tho now lockup with a lively jig, saying as he did
so, ''Thoro goes another three months
for mo." Somo sympathy is oxprosscd
for Brandt, who seems to bo a man
unused to suoh associations.—Tho establishment of a telegraph office is a
subjoct of rejoicing hero and will bo
of groat sorvico in cqnnection with
tho canneries nnd steamers as well as
in cases' of sickness in tho neighborhood, as tho uso of tho wires will savo
several hours' timo in procuring a
doctor. The operator, Master Edwards, reports a very good run of
business during the few days which
havo elapsed since tho oflico was
opened,— Mr. W. B. Skinner nnd Mr.
W. H. Burr havo each recently imported a self-binding roaper. Tho
machines seem to give good satisfaction, nnd aro a valuable addition to
tho "plant" of tlio neighborhood.
Mr. Burr's fine steam thrasher went
up to Chilliwhack this week, as tho
harvest is somewhat earlier there than
here. Mr. John Smith, of Lnngley,
who brought n hay-press of superior
construction and power which he sold
to Mr. T. Ladner, hns leased the said
press for a torm and hns been bnling
a large quantity of hay therewith-
Mr. S. hnving long followed tho business does up his work "with neatness
and dispatch." Tho crops, so far ns
hay and grain aro concerned, are of
mora than average quantity and superior quality. Haying is ovor, and
novor was hay crop secured in bottor
condition. Tho grain crop is being
icred in, and is as near perfect as
woll could bo. Vegetables aro a light
crop but many of them very good.

SERGEANT GOLAN ACCOUNTS FOR TNE DEFEAT
In conversation with a Tribune reporter about tho international match
and its result, Sergeant Dolan said:—
"Tho principal cause of tho defeat of
our team was the weather, which was
so extremely bud that I cannot do justice to it iu a description. It was a
kind of weather that our men had never experienced beforo. All but four of
ub had finished at tho 800-yard range
before luncheon. The two teams took
luncheon together and then went to
work at the long ranges, when a violent storm of rain and hail broke over,
tho field. The wind and rain soemed
to come from overy direction at once,
and good work was impossible to those
who woro not accustomed to shooting
under such circumstances. The clouds
cleared away in a short timo, but the
shifting, uncertain light which followed was worse than rain. Then the
targets woro so placed that the sun
was behind thein, and glared full in
tho faces of the men. At Croedmoor
tho targets aro arranged so that the
sun shines on them, and is at the bnck
of those who are shooting. This wns
a fruitful cause of confusion to our
men.
"1 don't think thore is any material
difference between English and American powder, and I consider the American ammunition fully equal to the
English. Our guns were in every way
equal to thoso of our opponents','* I do
not think thero is any difference in the
quality of tho Browne and Remington
gun. Four of us used tho former weapon nnd eight the latter. Wo usod
tho samo powder at all tho ranges, and
woro well satisfied with it. The Englishmen wero undoubtedly helped considerably by their long experience with
tho peculiar woather and tho changing
lights on tho targets. Then it should
be remembered that thoy have been
shooting for twenty years, whilo our
men have been at it only two years.
Tbe feeling is general among the British volunteers that a team will be
Bent here next year for a return match.
I think an American team can be selected which will beat them, too."--

NELLIE'S MEMORIES.
{Continued.)
"I gave him mine willingly, and we
parted; that night, I do not know
why, I sobbed myself to sleep.
"The following Sunday I wont to
church as usual, and looked eagerly
at the front free-seat, but he was not
there; and when afternoon came, and
it was still vacant, a nameless terror
filled roy mind; what could have become of him? After tea I waa sitting
disconsolately in the porch, when I
mw Enoch Barsiey and Silas Underwood coming down tho lone; and moro
disinclined thau over for their slow
clumsy compliments, I fetchetj tay
hat and ran down the orchard, and on
to the grass meadow and the pool.
There was a little clump of elder-
bushes at the far end of the pool, with
a little Beat under them, where I loved
to sit aiid read sometimes on Sunday
afternoons; and I was making my
way to it, when I heard a muffled
sound apparently proceeding from that
direction. I stepped cautiously and
peeped between the bushes, and then
my heart stood still; for I saw Allan
lying on the grass, with his face to the
«rth. ,    .„
"In sudden terror I cried, 'Allan,
Allan, what ails you?' and at the
sound of my voice he sprang to his
feet as swift as a dart, and drawing
himself up proudly, stood facing me.
" 'What ails you, Allan?1 I said
again, for his eyes were wet and his
face pale and drawn. For answer he
stretched out his arms to me.
"'Good-bye. Lucy, good-bye, ray
dear; sorrowful be the day I ever saw
your iweet face. When I ara gone
many a richer man will woo, and one
will win; but none, none can love half
so truly and so well, dear, as the penniless soldier!'
"Then stroking the trembling hand
he held, 'I bless God I have seen your
dear face again; for may be I shall see
it no more, for we are ordered away
to-morrow, Lucy; and I dared not
come and say good-bye;' and then
again he stretched out his arms to me,
and forgetful of all save what he had
told me, that I should see his face no
more, I laid my head on his breast
aud he kissed mo twice and left the
place.
"And so the shadow of a hopeless
love passed over my life, and weary
days and weary nights were appointed
me, to be spent in fruitless longings
for a face that I should never seo
more.
' "'What ails our Lucy?' was my
mothor's daily comment; 'she does not
seem as blithe-like and pert as she
used to be, but goes about the houso
drooping, for all tho world liko a little
bird with a broken wine;.'
" 'With a broken heart, you mean,
mother; with a broken heart!' But a
mightier grief was at hand. Ono
night, market night it was, when tho
farm was still, and the inmates asleep,
save the mother who sat knitting in
the house-place, biding the father's
return, our gray mare galloped riderless into the yard. In a moment the
house was astir; half-dressed sleepy
farm-servants went hither and thither
with torches and lanters searching the
lanes and by-paths, and it was not
long before they found him lying in
the road with his face to the raoon,
and the blood welling out from a deep
wound in his head. The dancing
shadows had probably caused Gipsy to
shy, and bo threw her master, perhaps
at that moment sitting unconsciously
reckoning his gains with the bridle
thrown on her neck, and then his poor
head had struck against a sharp flint-
stone, which had given him his death-
wound.
"As they lifted hiin up and bore
him to the farm the last struggling
breath was drawn, and the gray hues
of death settled down once and forever.
"When my mother, standing on the
horse-block straining her eyes into the
darkness, saw amid the flaming torches
the awful straightness ot the form they
bore, the light and color died out of
her face forever. Slowly from that
day, yet surely, following her husband's footsteps down to the place of
shadows, she faded painlessly from
life; and one morning in the autumn,
when the laden corn-wains passed to
and fro, and the children went nutting
in the lanes and copses, they came to
me and whispered that she was dead;
and so there were none left but rae
and Dorothy,
"Ah, those hard bitter days, when
Dorothy went about and bustled in the
house-place and left me alone to my
■orrowl There was no will, my father
had never made one; perhaps with the
■uperstitioua feelings belonging to his
class that it might hasten his death;
but of course the substance should
have been fairly portioned out between
us. Dolly, however, seemed to assume
the whole as her right, and talked of
taking me with her to live when she
waa married—for, oh, heartless that
ahe waa, before the grass was green on
mother's grave, she had given up the
farm on advantageous terms, and prepared for the flitting.
"Life with Dorothy and Josiah in
that odious little house on the high
atreet waa worse than death to me;
and when Dorothy told me her intention in her austere decided way, I
rebelled for the first time in my lifo,
aaying that Iter's and Josiah Beazley's
home ahould never be mine.
"This unlooked-for outburst on my
part waa followed by. a torrent of
taunts and sneora; and at last with
cruel passionate words she dared me
to aasert my will against hers. Alas,
my weakness waa uo match for her
strength, and at last, half maddened
by grief and despair, I rushed from
her presence and out from the porch
Into the dark chill garden.
"Down my mother's rose-tree walk,
and out of the wicket-gate under the
lilac tree, and along the damp grassy
lane, I cared not whither. Blinded
by tears I heeded not the obstacles iu
my way, and waa juat stumbling over
a fallen log, when a strong arm caught
and replaced me on my feet, and then
turning iny face to the uncertain light,
cried, 'Lucy, Lucy." It was Allan.
As a drowning man clings to a plank,
so I clung to bim I thought never, to
we again.
" 'Take me away, Allan, tako mo
away; I will never go home any more,
I ffill nover see her cruel face again.'
" 'Hush, love,' ho said gravely, in
the low tone one would use. to a frightened child, 'let me hear what all thia
means;' and drawing me to the log, he
listened .to my incoherent story,
broken by burste of hyaterical weeping. 'Thou hast loat thy protectors,
Lucy; what can I do with thee?"
"•Take me away, I pleaded, burying my fai in hia shoulder; you say
vou love me, Allan, take me away.'
«'Love thee!' he aaid, pressing his
lipa to my hair, 'lovo thee! ay, ao
dearly, that I can ill bear poverty for
thee/ Then, with a aad smile, 'You
■ poor eoldier'a wife, Lucy, with thou
little delicate hands! and yet how
leavo you to tbat merciless woman,
with her hard face and voice to crush
the dear life out of you?'
"'I will die,'I cried passionately,
rather than live with her and Josiah;
I will not, Allan, I wil). not!'
"And so at last, after many tears
and many words, it was agreed that I
was to meet Allan on tho morrow, at
a given place, and he was to tako me
to a friend of his, a corporal's wifo, in
the southern town where the regiment
was quartered, and there to remain
until ho could legally claim me as his
wife.
"And so before a month was out, I
married Allan, and in spite of many
a hardship and privation was as happy
as the day waB long. Though our
room was poor it was very neat, and
I was so proud to seo iny husband rido
out on his splendid black horso to
parade, and so childishly pleased with
the novelties about me, and Allan was
ao kind and dear, that I never wished
myself back at the farm. I used to
eke out our scanty means by doing
needle work for the officers' wives; and
these used to be very good to me and
give me little presents, and ap for
sevon months tho happy life went on.
"Our regiment was ordered to India, but as I was accompanying Allan,
this news did not trouble me, though
Allan seemed to fear the tedious
voyage for me.
"About a week after this wo had a
letter from D-— that strangely and
joyfully excited ub. A distant relative of mine had died and left a small
legacy to be divided between Dorothy
and me; small as the sum was, it
seemed princely to us; and Allan
opened his eyes incredulously at the
moment.
"The attorney who wrote the letter
was JoBiah, and he added a not uncivil message from Dorothy, to the
effect that I should come up to D-—
immediately to receive my share, and
put up at their house.
"'What Bhall we do, Lucy? loan-
not get leave of absence, and yet we
want the money.'
"No doubt of that, for our outfit for
tho voyage was scanty in the extreme,
and bo reluctantly 1 made up my mind
that I must be the one to go.
" 'You need not bo longer than two
days; indeed, next week we may have
orders to put on board; so three or
four days are all I can spare to my
little wife.'
"'Oh, they aro far too many,'I
said, and then wo talked of ways and
means, and then I settled to go. I
was very miserable when I said goodbye to Allan at the station, and not
much happier when I reached D .
Tho little drab parlor was dingier than
over, and Dorothy more angular and
sharp; married life had not agreed
with her; for, if report apoke true,
she had found u match in Josiah.
"Dorothy was rough and sharp, but
not unkind, till wo opened the jubjoct
of money matters, when I found sho
and Josiah had made up their minds
to cheat me, if possible, out of my
proper sharo. But brave for my husband's sake, I held to my rightB, and
insisted on my fair share; and then
Dolly's totnper was roused, and warm
and insulting speeches were heaped on
Allan and myself, whieh I bore patiently, and then returned to the old
subject—would they give me my own
honestly? No, they would not; nnd
when at last, seeing me stand Arm and
inclined to call in other and worthier
advice, they wero compelled to yield,
such obstacles were placed in my way
that I was well-nigh in despair. Three
days, and still half the money withheld; four days, nnd then Allan bade
me come without it, and instantly, for
they had orders to sail.
"This letter had been withheld from
me a day, more from carlessuess than
spite, though I accused Dolly of the
latter; another day and the regiment
would embark; and frantically I rushed
to Dolly, and implored her to have
Joaiah's gig put to for ine directly.
" 'Gig, indeed!' cried Dolly, iicorfl-
fully; 'as you have come you may go
back to your beggarly husband—gig,
indeed!'
"I pleaded again and again, but I
might as well have tried to soften a
stone; and at last, maddened by her
continuous ill-usage, I started off on
foot, while she called -to me from the
threshold, in her shrill mocking tones,
'I shan't -•'id tho rest of the money
after you,' but 1 gave no heed.
"It was a scorching Bun, and eight
miles to the nearest station to catch
the up train; it was madness to walk,
and with those bitter angry feelings
tearing at my heart, but I did. Oh,
ma'am, to my sorrow and trouble, I
did. A wagoner seeing me plod on
wearily offered to take me up, but
there wus a rough-looking fellow on
the top, and I had money about mo,
and did not dare accept the welcome
rest. Oh, ma'am, it was a fool's gate
that day, but I was little more than a
child, and did not know the mischief
it might do.
"Ere ever tliat long walk was over,
the old faintness attacked me; some
one driving rapidly past in a gig saw a
woman lying insensible on the grass
by the roadside, and lifted her up—it
was Josiah Beazley. He drove me
home. I was too ill to know where I
was going, and ere many hours had
passed my trouble came on me, and
my poor baby waa born. I was terribly ill for months and months, my
brain was affected; and when I came
to know all about it my huabund had
sailed that very night nine months
ago.
"Many a letter had he written, poor
fellow, many a loving, anxious letter,
praying Lucy for one word to ease his
cruel anxiety; but would you believe
she never answered thom, but flung
them on the bed, with the words, may
be I should soon be able to answer
them myself.
"I wrote that night, and again and
again, but I havo never heard from
Allan, never, never! I do not know
whether he be dead or living;" and
here Lucy Graham broke down in a
fit of sobbing.
"Dolly waa sorry whenshe bow what
slio had done, but somehow it seemed
hard to forgive her, so I just took my
sickly baby and went to an aunt in
Scotland, with whom I lived for somo
time. I have written and written,
till hope deferred has become fear deferred; my letters have been returned
to me, and our colonel's lady, to whom
I at last wrote, Baid in her kind letter,
that Allan Graham had gono home on
sick leave a year and a half ngo. A
year aud n half, and had never
reached England!
