$]o.ctri).
convening tbe Legislature.
Tbe public are already aware tliat
on Monday last a memorial, signed
by three-fifths of the meinbers-elect,
was presented to the Lieutenant-
Governor stating tliat they considered it to bo in the interests of the
Province that tho Legishttuie should
be convened at once for tho dispatch
of business, and requesting that it
might be.oonvonod accordingly. In
formation lias reached us through
reliable channels to the effect tlint,
whon confronted with this proposi
tion, the Premier fought hard for
delay till the end of Fehruar}-, contending tliat it would lie extremely
inconveniont to meet tho House until tho Government could place their
dock scheme fully before it. The
reader will he aware that tenders for
| tho dock are invited, and a reference
j to tho advertisement shows that
\ theso tenders uio required to be sent
in to tho Lands and Works Department and tlie oftces of Messrs,
Kinipple & Morris, Engineers, Wesl-
minster und Greenock, until the 15tli
February, lfe. Now a iittlo reflection will show how adroitly ilie
Ministers havo beeu playing their
cards—30 timing the receipt of leu-
dors as to havo what they iIoiiIjUuhh
conceived to be a pluiisnblo pretext
for delaying the convening uf tho
Legislature.   Tenders sent iu lothe
I office of tho Engineers in Loudon on
the  15th February could not i each
James Bay much bpforo the 10th of
March, aud it is more thnn probable
that somo pretext would have been
found for delaying the meeting of
the Houso till the middle of March,
But, ro far from presenting ground
for delay, this dock questhin ienlly
constitutes   one   of   tho   strongest
reasons for haste iu convening the
Legislature.   Mr, Beavon is not to
be trusted with this business. It has
been neon how lie has ordered cuvgo
after ca'go of cement and given out
:ontract after contract, aggregating
iitiidrcds of thousand-] of dollars of
i.xpenditure, and that without any
ionstitutional authority. Itt the faco
if such experiences as these is it
trange that the tax-payers should
uke the alarm, should hesitate to
rust him with the. handling of the
ontract now proposed to bo given
ut? Is it strange thut they should
bject to liis having tho opportunity
f still farther and iiredeemably in-
olving tho revenues of tho Province
i connection witli that unfortunate
nd ruinous undertaking! Ou the
jntrary, it would, indeed, be pass-
ig strange if thoy did not outer an
nphatic protest against his bum;
lowed to handle that dock business
<y longer without consulting their
apresentatives.   Under   theso eir-
imstances and  on general eonstitu
onal principles it became tho duty
1 tho Lieutenant-Governor to oxer*
so tho latent prerogative and in*
st upon tho immediate assembling
; the House, in order not only to
'ovide a check upon the Govern
ent in respect to dock matters, but
Bet at tost the gravo doubts exist-
in the public mind and his own
to whether these Ministers pos
is the confidence of a majority of
e   people's representatives.   Tlio
nstitutional test cannot be applied
) soon.   It should have boen aped long ago.

In the environs of Poitiers Mons.
Lisch has discovered a whole Gallo-
Iloman town which he declares to bi1

other buildings.
Writing upon ''ihe doomed comet,"
Mr. J. A. Westwood Oliver snys that
from our knowledge of the nature of
cotnetary bodies, etc., wu may infer
thnt thu appronching disaster to our
present celestial visitor will bring to'
us nothing moro thnn abnormal magnetic disturbances, auroras, or possibly
nothing at all.
In reply io a suggestion lhat raw
meat should bo more generally eaten,
Dr. T. It. Allinsou points nut that at
least Bevcu diseases are known to bo
communicable front the tower animals
to man, and that eighty por cent, of
the animals- eaten in Loudon are said
to he diseased. The unsound ment
cannot be distinguished by inspection,
nnd cooking is the only safeguard
against infection.
The energy of tho human heart,
working day and night while life lasts]
is enormous. During an average working day a good climber cun only rniso
his own weight 1,000 feet un hour,
while the work of the honrt is estimated io be equivalent to raising its own
weight (tiui ounces) lU,8(i0 feet high
in nu hour. This is about livo times
tho energy of the most powerful steam
ongino evor. made.
The groat expense of tho multitude
of expeditions fitted out to obaorvo the
transit uf Venus across tho sun's face
on December (ith hns been incurred
simply to reduce nn uncertainty in the
sun s parallax of one-tenth of a second.
Although more than a hundredth part
of tho whole, Prof. Young finds this
tenth of a second to be no more than
the angle subtended by a single hair
at a distance of 800 feet. The most
probable parallax may br Liken to bo
8.80 seconds, whieh signifje-j that the
sun is 02,885,000 miles front us, Tho
best authorities'admit thnt this estimate of the parallax, mnde from ob'
sorvations thus far worked out, may
be inaccurate within tho limit cf one-
twentieth of a second either way. This
apparently slight uncertainty, however, is uot to bo overlooked, as the
ono-tweutioth uf a bocoik! corresponds
tu about half a million miles. As the
sun's distance front tho earth is the
unit adopted for measurements among
the stars, its accurate determination is
a mutter of great value to astronomy,
nnd tho Importance of transits of Venus and Mercury rests upon the fact
that they afford a means of finding the
solar parallax.
A IIkautv Rhoommendation.—Jacob
A. Kmpoy, of Caiinamoro, states that he
hns taken Burdock Blood Hitters with
great benefit in n lingering complaint,
and ndds that he would gladly recommend It to all.

Our Civic Affairs.
It would be weak affectation to
deny tbat the recent expevionce of
this community in the working of
municipal institutions lias been far
from satisfactory. After some twenty
yeave experience tho principal community on the Muinhmd might not
unreasonably have been expected to
-set nn example in the matter of self-
government worthy of being followed by others. Insteud of that, however, it must be admitted that, of
the seven municipalities in cxistci :ce
in the valley of the Lower Fraser,
the working of the civic machinery
in this has been the most bitchy ai;d
unsatisfactory, the least entitled to
be held up as a model. It is clear,
therefore, that wisdom does not always come with age, or dwell with
the multitude of councillors. Having made this honest confession, wo
desire to point out the importance of
a sweeping civic reform. That this
city is now on tho verge of an epoch
in its history at once important and
criticnl must be readily admitted by
every thoughtful poison. On one
hand the transcontinental railway of
the British North American Empire
is being hastened to completion. On
the other is about to be conuneiiced
a l'iiie connecting thnt railway with
the American railway system to tbo
sooth of us. Thus environed by the
great railway systems of the two
nations and forming tho point of
junction of both, New "West mi nf* tor
might reasonably bo supposed
to have a great future in store.
But is it quite certain that
greatness will be thrust upon this
•city? Will all the commerce and industry and popu'ation and wealth
come upon a community chiefly remarkable for inertia, want of self-
■helpfulness aud union? Need 1:0
hand be stretched forth to grasp the
glittering prize held out by Fortune,
It is not so written in history. Torture helps thoso who help themselves. The natural advuntuges of
onr city aro great; but they are not
such as to entitle her to sit with
folded hands, like Lord Duffertn's
Indian wrapped iu his red blanket
•waiting for the tido to bring his dinner of fish to his feet, and e.'-ppct
commerce to forco its favors upon
her. No. She must prove herself
worthy of the great destiny j and
that can only be done by employing
the usual means for wooing coni-
merco and capital, both coy dame.*'.
And it is looking to that end that
we now seek to impress upon tbe
rate-payers of New Westminster the
important duty of being prepared to
make a new departure in municipal
affairs next month. It is none too
soon to set your houso in order for
the election to be held on the second
Monday in January. Choose from
among you seven of the most discreet, reliable, progressive men, tho3o
possessing the gumption to discern
and the pluck to seizo New Westminster's opportunity. Having caie-
fully selected them, be prepared U
givo them an honest, intelligent support in carrying out good measure.-;,
instead of discouraging and disconcerting them with misconstruction
and contumely. A considerate and
fair policy on the part of tho ratepayers will go far towards making a
good Council.
Hop-Culture.
Eevcrting to tho subject of hop-
culture, it may be objected that,
owing to the exceptionally high
prices this year, hop-growing will be
over-done and the markets of tho
world will be glutted, While ad-
mifctiug that, in tho regular course of
events, such a contingency might not
unreasonably be apprehended, the
objection is not one which should
deter men from embarking in that
industry. Suppose it should happen
that present high prices should result in tliat way, the samo theory
carried out to its legitimate conclusion would justify the hypothesis
fcfiafc a time .'f famine «	
In other words, if a high price this
year would cause ovor-prott action and
consequent um-emunerativo prices,
tlmt condition would, in its turn,
with equal certainty result in underproduction and its concomitant, famine prices. The law of supply and
demand is simple enough, and would
properly enter into the studies of
(he hop-grower ns well us these en
gaged in tlio production of any other
commodity. Taking tlie markets
year in and year out it is safe to
count upon an average return of
about thirty cents a pound. Wo
have seen tlie price rise to one dolla'-. 'It might possibly fall as low ns
fifteen cents; but experience and
close observation havo led those who
ought to lie in a position to form a
correct opinion to believe that thirty
cents would be a safe average to calculate upon. Now, there is excellent
authority for stating that hups can
be raised and got ready for market
on this coast at a cost of nine cents
a pound, That is to say, nine cents
a pound will cover labor of every
kind, tho cost of sacking, etc., and
fair hUerest on the amount of capital employed, and all realized over
nino cents a pound, would be clear
profit, Accepting this as a basis of
calculation, and assuming that our
sbil and climate will produce 2,500
lbs. to the ace, it will bo seen tbat
the grower's profit would bo ecpial
to $525 per acre, nnd thus a snug
littlo hop farm of,twenty acres would
produce a clear annual profit of $10,-
500. Now, wo would like to hoar
of any other industry which, while
involving so little iisk and outlay,
promises such satisfactory results.
As was stated in a previous article,
our climate and soil are exceptionally
favorable for bop-culture, iind with
completed railway communication,
wc nhall enjoy exceptional facilities
for reselling the principal markets of
the world. We feel, therefore, that
we arc justified, iii'view of all the
circumstances, in recommending this
as amongst the surest and mos! profitable of all our industries.
tflsfe ScraD,
There appeared to be a prospect
some months ago of tho establishment of a manufactory for the utilization ot salmon offal iu connection
with tho canneries on the Lower
Frasor—turning tho scrap into oi!
and guano, instead of having it
dumped into the rivor. Looking at
the matter from the .standpoint of
public interest, there enn be no two
opinions about the desirableness of
the tho thing, At present tbo scrap
is absolutely wasted, and along with
it goes many a whole fish; But ifc is
worse than wasted. Tbe river is
polluted, and there can be very little
doubt that the presence of sueh large
quantities of foul matter in tho
water militates against the ascent of
fish. Then, again, there is the public advantage arising from the pursuit of a new industry with its employment of labor, expenditure of
money, &c. But howover advantageous it might be in a public point
of view, ifc is not to be expected that
capital will look at it in that way.
Asa commercial venture, how would
itstund? j'liat'sthequestion. One cannot easily see bow it could fail to be a
profitable industry. The scrap would
be delivered to the manufacturer at
each cannery f. o, b., ami all lie would
have to do would bo to low tho
scows to liis factory and "elevate"
the scrap. According to the opinion
of men wlm ought to be able to
reach pretty accurate conclusions,
the industry would provo highly remunerative; and if, as there is now
every reason for expecting, the
United States markets should bo
thrown open to us, our fish oils could
not fail to present a very lucrative
field for tbe employment of capital.
Tlio question has been suggested to
us in connection with this subject
whether ifc might not be advisable to
offer sueh a bonus as would insure
the immediate establishment of a
manufactory oE the kind. Tlie.
proposition is deserving of conauera-
tion.
How true it is that impndonce and
ignorance generally go hand in hand.
Referring to Manitoba as "a littlo big
place." our local contemporary lectures
its peoplo upon constitutional justice
and rebukes them for "disloyalty.!1
There can bo no doubt that a lecture
and rebuke from audi high authority
would havo produced a profound im-
preaslon in the "Hub" provinco, were
ifc not for the ludicrous exhibition of
ignorance respecting tho geography df
that "littlo big'' bit of the Dominion.
son is tho Capital'1 of Manitoba and
the International fo tho local organ"!
Convulsed witli laughter at tlie ignorance of this censor, tho Mahjtobans
can hardly bo expected to receive wiih
becoming submission this Duniei's
teaching and rebuke. And, bc'sidr:},
they may possibly imagine that .true
loyalty, like that other grace, should
begin at homo,—that loyalty to their
own province constitutes a first doty.

Play-Ground Accident.
On Wednesday, a son of H. V. Edmonds, Esq., fell and fractured his
arm whilo playing ou tho public -school
grounds. This accident in a painful
reminder of tlio necessity that exists
for very material improvement on
theso grounds. Nothing hns been dono
towards removing the stumps and roots
and rocks end inequalities whieh render the ground unfit for the purposes intended, There is every reason
to believe that Wednesday's accident
waa attributable to the disgracefult-1111*
dition of the grounds. It is to be
hoped the trustees will make aVopol't
upon (lie subject and that means may
bo devised foi- placing these grounds- iu
a proper condition. A suitable playground constitutes a most important
adjunct of a public school, and an immediate and earnest effort ahoiiH be
mado to supply (ho public flchtfbl in
this city with such a desideratum.
Snaggy iteiieia.
On Wednesday, tho 20th ult., tho
steamer Gertrude, Capt. Goo. Odin,
commenced tho work of clearing a
channel through Snaguy Reach, and
continued steadily at work till Thursday ovening, when sho came down for
stronger tackle. During fho eight or
nine days sho was at work fourteen
snags were successfully removed; leaving six still to be taken out. Some of
theso fourteen snags were upwards of
one hundred fuct in length, great big
trunks of trees, deeply embedded iu
the mud and gravel forming flic bottom, and very difficult to remove. Of
the six remaining ones, two aro understood to be ugly customers to tackle.
When the oyulrnct shall hnvo boen
completed, wo aro led to believe a very
important improvement to the navigation in that part of tho river will have
beeu accomplished; but we fear the
contractor will not bo greatly enriched
thereby. The Gertrude returned to
the work yesterday.
A Klii£iit -.';• MIS Ear-
Chief Justice Bit' M. B. Begbie was
holding County Court at Nanaimo last
week, when a somewhat complicated
caso camo beforo him, involving tho
validity of certain by-laws made by
the Nanaimo Pilotage Commissioners
and confirmed by the authorities at
Ottawa. Tho Chief Justice pronounced
the by-laws not only worthless hut
ridiculous, i.ud animadverted with
somo severity upon the Federal authorities for having ceutb'med thom,
i.itiitiating that it must have been after
dinner when the Ooveriior-Genernl
signed-—an in.-iiniiiuion which does not
indicate a very clear idea on the part
of the Judge as to tlio nature of the
Governor-Goner.d's duties and responsibilities in the premises. The hearing
of the case occupied about tivo hours
and tho patience of the .Judge being
completely exhausted, .he pulled but
his purse and offered' to pay the
amount in dispute (SilB) ns tha 'easiest
way out of the tangled mess; but this
novel mode of settilumont was declined
by both parties.
Departure of Vlcc-fea! Parly.
As was announced in our last issue,
it was the intention of IJis Ex cell envy
the Governor-General and Her Boj'al
Highness thoj Princcis Louiao to have
left Victoria on Wednesday, going by
way of Puget Sound and Boil laud.
Learning, however, of tho prevalence
if fogs on tho Columbia river and consequent uncertainty and disorganization of the steamboat service, that programme was abandoned, mid the illustrious party sailed ori li. M. S. Comus,
m Thursday afternoon for San Francisco direct. Thia change will'have
proved a great disappointment to many
people on the Sound and at Portland,
where thero was a very general desire
to sou and piiy becoming respect to tho
distinguished couple.
The Yico-Regal party embarked at
Esquimalt shortly after noon, amid the
maiming of yards, tho firing of a royal
salute nlid a gonural display nf hunting
and manifestations of loyally by the
large concourse of people assembled to
seo ilfcm off. Tlio steamers Alexander

Our Telegraphic System.
Before us.is a blue-book comprising
iho Report of E. N..Gisborne, Esq.,
Superintendent of Dominion Telegraph
and Signal Sofvico. The Report details the position in which he found
tlie telegraphic uli.iirnf Itritish Columbia when ho came herb in the latter
part, nf 1870, and sets forth lhe changes
made under his administration, and
the economic results of these changes.
It is claimed thnt nn annual saving
equivalent to $25,000 was alttuncd,
while at the samo timo greatly increased efficiency has been secured. A most
significant increase in the revenue in
noted, viz., from $8,820 during 1873-
7!., to nn estimated revenue of :f20,000
iu the year. 1881-82. The total mileage
of land lines nod cables is 070 miles,
plus 36 miles of duplicate wire line.
Tho total cost froin June 30th 1SS0, is
act down at £8ij.()00. The amount required for the year ending 80th June
next in estinflated at 530,000, uhieh,
deducting the oshmated oamin^s,
920,000, would leave 910,000 as it
charge upon (he Dnm'ojon. 'I'ho showing is not an unsatisfactory one. Let
US hope the telegraphic system of the
Province limy soon attain the some degree of efficiency in fact which it already appears lo .enjoy on paper.
Writing wiih u full knowledge of tlio
Facts and cheerfully admitting tho tm-
provomenhi already attained, the Superintendent must excuse ns for think-

When is a (iir! a Major?
Tho statement nnide in these columns Borne mouths ago tu tho effect
that a gitl dnly attained her majority
at the age ol 21 and required (ho consent of parents or guardians to marry
befare,uppears to stick in the crop of a
correspondent of our local contemporary who writes over the nt>m da'pliune.
"Terra Firma." He has been reading
the Cliristian Guardian, lhe organ of
Methodism in Canada, and throws up
his cap over tlio following answer given
therein to a question:—'-Alady is considered of ago, ns far an hor right to
marry is concerned, at eighteen; but
when there are questions of property
involved, the legal ngo Is tweuly-otie,"
and then proceeds to i'omavl>-"Yonr
coteni., somo Utile time since, made
quite a fuss because somebody in writing ilmii'dit that ladieB were of age ai
eighteen, as far as marriage was concerned, and he emphatically declared
Mint they wore not of age till (wenty-
ouo. There is certainly a collision of
opinion between your cotem. and the
editor of tho (Adstieqi Guardian,"
Now we havu no rocoUocti^n of having
undo "a fuss'! about iho master at all.
We simply ntid quietly stated (lie fact
lhat iu British Columbia the legal aj*e
for both so;;ea fo 2i, and if/'Tarra
Firma" will take tho trouble to turn
to "0 Vic. Chap. J Iii, he will find that
wo cmrrftotly slated the law on the
point. Nor is there "a collision of
opinion between" the Columbian" and
its Toronto contemporary; but there is
evidently a confusion of ideas in tho
cranium of "Terra Firma/' who does
not appear to be aware of the fact that
tho Province of Ontario has its own
laws on the stitijeet, as well as British
Columbia. Will "Terra Firma" permit us to suggest to him tho propriety
of adopting some more apposite nofn de
plume, as it is quilo obvious that he
has not yet gained a solid footing ou
tbo matrimonial question.

also the Nonweight of the gold.
In explanation of the above we deniro
to nny that tbo old plan of charging for

all gold, worked well enough as long na
the manufacturers were content with the

in Lhe Interest of dealers in American

To avoid imposition, nimjjiasors of Whithorn Watches will observe that every

thus affecting injuriously 'the performance of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, which iii intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by us. Tt is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to be n public scandal
that there is great fraud in the metal
quality of both gold and silver cases as
now generally sold. Wc have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold and silver cases offered in the market are debased from 10 to 20 per cent,

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER XI.
"woo'd an' makmed an' a'."
(Conthtood.)
"Oh, I know—you nre ns bad as
- Muriel, my dear brother. Ifc is very
atrange that, though you nro both so
conservative in some things, I havo
never been able to make you respect
the customs of society sufficiently,"
"My dear Alicia, peoplo make customs. Now, you always talk as
though customs mado people; they do
ao to a certain extent, but not altogether."
"But where iB one to draw tlie Hue?
You are so terribly independent. In
a man that matters less; but I really
believe, but for my training, Muriel
might have developed into something
that I shudder'to think of."
"A strong-minded woman, perhaps,
aunt," laughed Muriel.
"Oh, I don't know what you might
have done."
"I know what, she would not havo
done," said Sir .Duncan, looking at
■her fondly. "I admit, Alicia, thnt
"you We taught hor wisdom of a sort
that I have never mastered, and that
a woman requires to learn. She needs
the wisdom of the serpent, if she is to
mix with society, as well as the harm-
-leH&neas of the dove. But that very
harmlessneBs would have kept my girl
within the line or prudence."
"Ahl would it? I don't know where
you draw that lino, nud I think a regard for soinl custom is the best safeguard."
"Social custom being invariably
right and wise nnd in good taste, you
assume that, of course! I think the
line is drawn first at what is right;
secondly, at what is convenient. It is
right for rae to entertain my tenants
and the folk generally about tho place;
it is convenient, therefore, not to entertain the county—and though tlmt
were a much more serious omission
than it really is, I should not care a
whit."
"I dare say you're right; but who
ever head of a standing braikfnst before? It is extraordinary," said poor
Miss Forbes, plaintively.
"Well, say it is all my fault—I shall
take it on my own shoulders; aud
you'll find, if the breakfast is ample
-and the champagne good, people will
-manage just w well as at n ball-supper,
fend tho affair will take half the usual
lime."
After this decision it was no wonder
that Miss Forbes was somewhat restless and uneasy on tho great morning.
To do her justice, she was ijnite its
anxious ns her brother himself that the
tenants and all the other people should
be handsomely entertained; but she
could not help looking sadly at the array in the dinner-room, and repeating
to herself, "It's nicely done, but I do
wish Duncan would have let people go
in properly, and sit down in their order. It would have been so much
more dignified."
Gifts meanwhile had poured in from
all quarters, and many of tiie humblest
touched Muriel's heart deeply. Never
had the servants heard their young
mistress speak so sharply as when she
detected them in tho act of hiding away
trifles that thoy considered unworthy
of display among the choicer presents.
"You think of nothing but the money's
worth," Baid she, nnd displaced a silver
casket in order to make room for a
carved bracket, the work df a lnmo boy
at one of the farms. In the same
•spirit she discarded on her wedding-
day her handkerchief of costly lace,
and asked for one on which a vilhtgo
.girl had embroidered her initials.
-These) and such as these, were the little acts which proved Muriol Forbes to
be true lady as sho was true woman,
for they were the outcome of a refined
and gontle mind."
On the day before the marriage there
was a, great looking-out of clothes, a
tacking in of frills, and ironing of col-
tars in Tillybodle. "Hae ye a'tiling
ready 1" said Jamie Fateruon's next-
door neighbor, Mrs. Grey, to Mrs.
M'Rorie, the butcher's wife,
"Ou ay," replied she, pausing to
rest her heavy market-basket on the
door-step. "I've just come frae the
shop, and wad ye believe it, Jamie
Pateraon was in buying half a pound
t>' soap I"
"It's no possible!"
■ "Fac's deith."
"Weel, that's mair nor's beon in his
hoose at anco this fivo yenr I've lived
beside him!"
" 'Peed is it. Miss Muriel wad be
gey an'pleased if she heard tell o't—,
•he aye speakin' aboot cleanly ways."
' "Ay, she's as neat's a new preen
hersel'; ye'll not see hor trapesin'
through the streets in a lung gown
liekin up the stour ahint her."
"No; yon fashion suits best wi' the
leddies'-maids at Hardwicke's place,
disnait? Gudenicht; I maun be step-
pin',"
Next morning at an early hour
Jamie Pateraon looked in at his neighbor's duor with a twinkle in his eye,
and a face ruddy from the use of the
half-pound of soap.
"Mrs. Grey, hae ye a mecnit to
■pare and a button yo could gie rael
Im needin' ane for my shirt. I can
■hoo that on inysel', but I'm no gude
at this kind of wark," said he, holding
up a torn shirt-sleeve
"I'll pit that richt directly, and
here's a button. Man, ye're awfu'
•mairt-lookin' the day."
"Weel, ye see, 1 dinna approve of
marriages, or I'd hae been' married
inysel', tnd I'm no vera fond a' the
gentry; but for a' that I wadua liko to
bide awa' the day. Sir Duncan's a
Mai gude man, and Miss Muriel's a
gude-hearted lassie; she's aye gi'on me
a ceevil word and a bonnie smile, and
I'll gie them a hand when thoy talc1
•ot tne horses at the south gate. Maybe she'll no see me; but maybe she
Will"
Muriel's courage carried hor bravely
through the morning — through the
long process of dressing whon servants
and brides'maids crowd round, and a
atrange solemnity of feeling accompanies* the putting on of the whito
robes that symbolize so much—through
marasie's tearful embrace and tender
re-touching of wreath and voil —
through the few moments of almost
silent fcrewell to her father in the
library ere ho led her out to the carriage.
That over, she wont through tlio
ceremony of the church with tho composure that came from a confident
love, and never bride looked fairer
than alio, as she passed between rows
of school children and amid showers of
blossoms back tp tho carriage with her
husband. She hnd not beon told of
the welcome that awaited her at the
lodge-gales, but when the loud choers
burst unexpectedly upon her ear her
calm gavo way, and tho ready tears
camo.
Tho horses were soon unharnessed—
for though it was considerably out of
tho usual course for the bride to be
drawn iu triumph to her door at this
stage of tlio proceedings, Sir Duncan
had not hud the heart to refuse tho request of those who had planned it,
And jJIuriej, with tears and smiles,
looked out at her friends, nud one of
thein was sure he heard her say to
Ileslie, "Oh, there's Jamie l'atorson—
looking so clean! How nice of him!"
and was ghul that lie had paid that
visit to tho stores.
The breakfast, in spito of Miss
Forbo's fours, passed off excellently.
Muriol did not appear, but partook of
her own meal in tho little boudoir,
onco her mother's and hitherto her
own; but, beforo retiring thero, ahe
made tho first cut in tho monster cake,
which, for size nnd richness, satisfied
even Miss Forbes' requirements. Then
the travelling dress was on, mamsie
put back the voil for a lust embrace,
and Sir Duncan at the door was calling that the carriage was ready, and
it was fully timo to start.
Muriel went out, With a last lingering look round her pretty room, she
took hor father's arm in silence and
hastened along the passage to tho latid-
ing-placo at the top of tho main staircase. She iiad nn indistinct consciousness of kissefl and blessings, of a sea
of upturned" faces below her as sho
came down tho wide staircaso, of a
rush, a bewildering, pattering shower
of shoes and rice; the carriage-door
slammed, nnd they were off; but even
as the four gray horses moved a figure
dashed to tho farther window and
threw something into hor lap, with a
ory'M "Wiissing yo joy, Mrs. Leslie!'1
It wns Jamie Pateraon. and on Muriel's
knee lay a dainty pair of bronze shoes
wiih fanciful sowing and rosettes.
"Eh," said Jamie, with a sigh, as he
joined hia friends, she's a boiinio lass,
nnd ohooriii's a line thing."
"Hoo's that, Jamie ?"
"Man, it's aic clrouthy wark.   Let's
awa' to the doiinerlent, '
The bonfires blazed brightly that
night on more than one. hill-side; and
not one of those v/ho piled them, and
watched their rising flames, guessed
that a solitary sentry from the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle gazed at the
reddening sky, nnd thought that once
—•in a time that now seemed vory far
away—ho too had loved the fair girl in
whoso honor that glow was kindled.
"I really think, Duncan, that everything lids gone -off without n single
hitch or failure of any kind," said Miss
Alicia to her brother, two days after
Muriel's marriage, whon the last dinner was over, tho last olmer given, and
the relies of the festivities were being
cleared away.
"I can hardly believe that, my dear;
wo may be quite sure that some one or
other lias not been pleased, though we
may never find it out. But I must say
every one has tried, as far ns I could
toll, to carry out tho orders completely, and no failure has come to my
knowledge."
"The duchess said everything was
charming."
"What! evon iu spite of tho standing breakfast i" exclaimed Sir Duncan.
"Woll, I confess people minded that j
loss than I expected; they seemed
amused, but not bo much put out after
all," repliel Misa Forbes, candidly.
"Of course; give people credit for
sense, take them a little into your
confidence about a thing, and (un to
one they will be on your aide."
"In your caso, Duncan—but then
you have iho reputation of boing a
little eccentric, and that helps you
through many a difficulty,"
"I am thankful to hear it, nnd am
willing to be credited with any amount
of eccentricity, if in that way I can
secure my liberty."
"Yes—you don't caro what people
think; I do, and I was much pleased
to find the duchess was well amused."
"The duchess is a woman of the
world, and always has tho air of being satisfied with her hosts; that's the
reason sho is so popular. One must
be always pleased or nlwftys critical.
Either way one yets a reputation, and
that is the great object of a woman's
life," said Sir Duucun, smiling; but
Miss Fi-rhes was not inclined to smilo.
"Now you nro talking riddles, Duncan, for you know you don't like the
duchess. But to return to what we
were saying, you think things went oil'
well?"
"Yes; aud it is satisfactory thnt I
did not see a Bingle face that was not
kindly and well pleased in the crowd
to-day. Every ono has shown great
sympathy nud good feeling through
the whole affair."
"Particularly by taking too much
whisky," remarked Miss Alicia, who
always shuddered at the sight of any
ono who had "had a drop."
"You must not be too hard on that,
for there wero very few offenders, considering tho number entertained.
You know I abominate drink ns heartily ns you: but until men value their
self-respect moro thnn many of them
do I fear drunkards will exist. I was
particularly struck with the sobriety
of the peoplo compared with what 1
rernemoher at tho time of my own
marriage, for instance."
"I saw that horrible man Paterson,
and thnt was enough for uio."
