The Farmers' Friend.
It is am it a ing to observe tlie lu
dioro-aff attempts Sometimes mnde by
tbe organs to present Mr. Beaven in
the light of the "Farmer's Friend."
It must be admitted that our statute-
books bear prima facie evidence of
his claim to that appellation. Foe
instance, it was he who invented the
ingenious method by which, with the
arbitrary stroke of the pen, twenty-
five tier cent, was added to the farmer's debt, and eighteen per cent, interest charged thereon. Huppily
the Dominion Government intervened and sta&ped out that piece of
heartless ex tori-ion which would hnvo
brought the blush of shame to Shy-
lock's cheek. ]t was lie who, lnuill:-
ed by Federal interposition, conceived the idea of mating the farmer's
indebtedness delinqtisi t on the 30th
June, and instantly adding some
thirty per cent, thereto. But here,
again, the Federal authorities interposed to prevent a Minister from
perpetrating an outrage tor Attempting wliich a private individual would
have been exposed to severe pains
and penalties, in is to this same
Minister that llio settlers are indent
ed for bavin? ..o pay ten dollars for
a survey, fiv<-* do'Vs for a Crown
deed, and two dullars for a certificate
of improvement. It is to the samo
Minister that the settlers are indebted for the luxury of paying a swing-
■ ing wild-land tax upon the vory pie-
upfw-j. 5 they are struggling
to mob;i.ujr)iiiose into farms, AH
those enactments and many more of
. thesame nature emanated f:oin tlie
' present Premie r, and show the true
inwardness of' tlio man. The whole
genius and tendency of his law-making hns been to screw, by hook or
by crook, the last dollar oat of the
very olass upon whom it should ho
the aim p- the Government to make
t.i..;ition a- light as possible, lt
surely requires no very profound
knowledge of political economy to
understand that overy dollar taken
away I'-'om the settlor stritjryilng to
create a boniest mul and develop a
farm is just liy so miioh a reduction
of the productive foi-c.es; To render
. the settloi*, in liu earlier struggles,
weak and helpless hy multiplying
imposw and pi'irg up ta::ation,
squals in folly nm) exceeds in heart*
lessness tbe fabled old idiotic cobbler
who killed the gooso that laid the
golden egg. And yet such has been
Mr. Ceaveil's policy throngbout,—
exhibiting no little ingenuity in devising schemes for squeezing money
out of the most important, but least
able to pay, industrial class. Nor
: are settlers, as a rule, ignorant of
the faet that it is the present Premier they a* a chiefly indebted to for
these things; and il is this knowledge that has much to do with making tbe Government so universally
unpopular in the country. Go where
you will in the farming districts,
more particularly in the newer a*t-
tlements on the Mainland, you will
hear bitter complaints aud imprecations against this man and his mean,
tShylock policy towards the settle■«
Thus it was that, at the general election in July, candidates who at
heart belonged to tbe Beaven party
were driven from tho sheer tVoo of
popular opinion to uot only disclaim
all sympathy with that parly, but
roundly denounce it at the hustings.
Indeed, in some instances, these were
ihe moat ultra in their expressions
)f condemnation of the Beaven ad
ministration.    But  fortunately the
•reat majority of the efectois had
iiscriurination enough to discover in
inie that these we'6 wolves in
itieep's c-othifg, nnd conse'queiitly
ihey we'*> rejected at the polls. The
»op)e throughout the country genially tbo'ougbly understand theso
btngs, and the organs will
lid that thoy are, as our local eon-
emporary once exptossed it, at-
empting to perform the impossible
iak of making water run up-hill.
The Qwcen %m flic General.
Tlio Sitlilicr XlnkriK a Etaiiny Kit,
London, Nov.-7.—-Sir Garnet Wol-
soley's lung journey to Balmoral and
brief visit iu tho Queen had, aftor all,
n pleasant side to them, writes the
London correspondent of the Now York
Tribune. Be reached tho Cnstlo nt 3,
as tlie Quoen was setting out for a
drive, her custom always of tho afternoon. Bev Majesty greeted her successful soldier cordially, but did not
postpone her airing. Royalty is not
iu the habit of postponing its pleasures
for tho peoplo; nor probably would
lesser great people have thought of
postponing anything' previously arranged.*" This is a Country where people do not pat themselves out. Tho
ceremony in Biich matters is to be unceremonious. The Queen informed
Sir Garuot that he must be tired with
his journey, and handsomely suggested
to liim that by the time she hnd como
in from driving ho would bo rested
and better able to talk. Sho returned
at 5, tea wns ordered, maps were produced, nud Sir Garnet wns commanded
to describe the campaign to Her Majesty. He found her familiar wiih
miliary details, n3 might be expected.
SI R CA KN.ET WAS l'LACKD AT lllli QOLBn'h
IlIOllT HAND,
and tho Egyptian talk went on. Tlio
Queen showed herself throughout most
gracious, whioh wns the more remarked because heretofore Sir Garnet
Wolseley haa not been a favorite nt
court. Royal opinions nu military
mutters are supposed to be much influenced by tlio Duko of Cambridge,
and the Duke of Cambridge, us everybody knows, has been at daggers
drawn will) Sir Garnet on short service and other questions of army reform.
There is a story—though it seems
ohurjish to revive it nnw—that the
Queo i insis'ed on Sir Garnet WuUoley
going i-o see hor before ho left for
Egypl. Ho was oo ill that his physicians had forbidden liim to receive
the Prince of Wiiliis, The Prince
asked just lo put his hand msida tho
door and sliat.e hands with his departing friend, hut the doctors stuck to
their no. Well, This critical state of
health was due largely, snid people at
tho time, to tlio journey Sir Garnet
liad been forced to nniko to Osborne—
or wherever the Queen may luu?
chanced to bo—In lako leave. And
one reason for Hur Majesty's obstinacy
iu tlie matter was her determination
to speak her royal mind to Sir Garnet,
ou bouie points of military administration which he, ns Adjutunt-Gonc-rnl,
had beeu ordering otherwise than was
pleasing to the Duke of Cambridge.
Let us hope this is mere seiindal. But
all that is over, and so was
Till! nitfSBtt AT BALMORAL,
after a time, but not before au incident had occurred which high authorities say is quite unprecedented. Wlieii
tho wino came on at dessert, the Queen
rose and proposed a toast, to tlio health
nf Sir Garnet Wolseley, with u flattering word or two about his success in
E^ypt. There was n situation for a
simple-minded, blunt sflldiorl Sir Garnet declares that nothing iu Kgypt
pussnled hiin so much as to know what
lie ought to do in this emergency.
Wlmt did etinuette require—nay, what
did it permit I Wlmt might a subject
iu presenco of his sovereign do to
acknowledge this extraordinary not of
royal condescension 'I Propose the
Queen's health in return? Doubtful
as matter of propriety; certainly coin*
mon-placo if proper. When tho Queen
sat down Sir Garnet stood up (for I
suppose he could not stand while In.*
own health wn^ being drunk, oven iu
the Queen's presence) aud said:—
"Wilt your Majesty .permit me to
propose a toast V
Hor Majesty signifying her assent,
upon which Sir Gar-et snid:
"I beg io propose ■ dih of my
gallant conirade-in-aru. '* ltoyal
Highness Uio Duke of Opuuau3 V
Quito perfect, was it not I They say
the Queen was immensely pleased J both
with the tact of Sir Gamut Wolseley
and with the compliment to her son.
When the General took his leavo, thoy
parted upon tho best of terms, nud ou
ihe whole, it appear* that tho hero of
Tel-el-Kebir and Cairo does uot regret
his 1,200 miles of travel lo mid from
Dal moral.
ONfi OF SIH OAUNBT'S ANECDOTES
about Tol-ol-Kebir is not yet out of
date Ho bad limed the night attack
to begin nt a Used hour, and reports
to bo brought him from the dillereut
bodies of troops that had actually
reached thoir positions, Surrounded
by his staff he was waiting on horseback, ond in his nerVous impatience
ho was continually pulling out n repeater he carried, and ringing the
hour. The night wns extremely dark,
the repealer very old, and Sir Garnet
frequently grew anxious, lest tho moment should pass before everything
was ready. A faint light dawned in
the Eastern Bky, and grew twiftly
brighter, and before long the horizon
and all that quarter of tho heavens
woro radiant with the hues of early
morn. Sir Garnet threw down his
watch with an exclamation of despair,
ond turning to tho stall', said:—'-You
see, gentlemen, it ia too lato; it will be
broad daylight before tho troops can
reach tho enomey's linos," "But,
why?" queried the hold man; "tho
hour fixed is not passed." "It must
be passed," rotortod Sir Garnet; "look
at the light in the sky." "Yea,'' responded the bold man, "I seo tho
light,    It is a comet."

IJkt $fitish Columbian.
Saturilny Morning. Dec. 10. IM-.'.
JVunquam non Paralus.
It is now- something over two
years since this journal (then called
the Herald) canie under tlie present
management. During the whole of
that period its circulation has been
steadily increasing at a rate which
long ago placed it without a rival on
the Mainland of British Columbia.
At the beginning of tho present year
the name was changed, and the
paper-considerably enlarged to meet
the demands of advertisers, who
were not slow to recognize the Columbian as the best medium through
which to reach the public. In the
job-printing department also there
his been a most gratifying increase.
In order to meet the large and constantly increasing 'demands made
'upon tlie 'resources of the establish-
tnent the proprietors have fonud it
necessary to order a new cylinder
power press from the -celebrated
manufactory of Campbell & Son. It
was hoped that the new press would
Dt placed in position and ready to
strike off the first number of the
Columbian for 1883, but we are advised that this cannot be, as the
manufacturers find it impossible to
fill promptly the very large number
of orders they are receiving. We
We reason to believe, however, that
the new press will be in operation
"before the end of next month, nnd
the establishment will then be prepared not only to issue tho large edition of the Columbian with much
greater despatch, but to execute
promptly and satisfactorily every
description of job priniing. The
Campbell press is acknowledged to
have no superior in its class as a
printing maohlne. The ono ordered
for us will print a sheet fifty percent, larger than the Columbian,
and is capable of making 1,000 impressions an hour. When this ma-
chin* is set up the establishment
will contain three first-class p'-esscs,
•nd will be one of the most complete
printing offices on the Pacific coast.
tt is gratifying to know that our
efforts to produce a live newspaper,
thoroughly independent of party or
clique, have met with such marked
success; and the improvements proposed for the coming year may be
accepted as an indication that we
are determined to keep fully up with
the demandi of this province as a
printing and publishing house,
The Pilotage Interests.
The proposition respecting the
pilotage regulations contained in
tha address intended to have been
presented to the Governor-General
by the Victoria Board of Trade cannot be permitted to pass without a
protest, in which it is confidently believed Nanaimo will cordially join.
At the present' time the pilotage interests of each of the ports of Victoria, New Westminster and Nanaf-
mo are entrusted to separate Boards.
Tha proposition of the Board of
Trade is to amalgamate the three
districts, placing the whole under-
one Board. Although it is not stated tbat the general Pilotage Board
shall ba located at Victoria, that
such is the intention goes without saying. This wonld be practically a
return to the old system which was
found to work so very unsatisfactorily. But there is no need to rest
opposition upon the ground that the
plan now sought to be introduced
did not work satisfactorily before.
It is easy to show why it could uot
da so now. And, first of all, it may
ba frankly stated that Victoria has
altogether too great un interest in
compelling tbe whole commerce of
th* Provinco to become tributary
to bar to be trusted with tho control
of the pilotage interests of the other
seaports. It would be placing too
much temptation in her way, subjecting her commercial virtue to undue pressure. To explain: It iu in
th* interest of Victoria—at least she
thinks so—to prevent ocean com
meres finding its way direct either
to this port or to Nanaimo or Bur
rard Inlet Wo havo seen every
effort made, every "trick of trade"
•inployed, to prevent ocean-going ves<
aala coming on direct to this port. It
has been seen that in order to accomplish that object, vessels cleared
and destined for New Westminster
have been induced to stop short at
Viotoria and their frieght brought
on here at rates which would scarcely pay for tho handling. As a natural consequence of this irrepressible
desire to become the sole ocean port
and entrepot for British Columbia,
there has grown up in Victoria, unconsciously no doubt, a very strong
prejudice against New Westminster
presuming to divide tho trade with
her. Even the A-njtoria pilots are
popularly believed to be more or less
affected by this prejudice; nml it
would be unreasonable to expect that
a Victoria Pilot Board hnving jurisdiction over out- waters would be
free from the some insidious influence. But, speaking more particularly for- this port, there aro other
grounds of objection to plncing our
pilotage interests in the hnnds of u
Victoria Soard. It will I* sufficient
to deal with one of these at this
time. Experience und common senso
point tothedesirablonessof havingtho
river pilotage a thing by itself—having one or mo'-e pilots, according lo
the needs of commerce, expressly for
the river. Such a knowledge of the
river as Victoria or sea-pilots cannot
be supposed to possess is essential to
tho interests of ocean commerce,
seeking a river port. No man acquainted with such matters and not
completely warped by prejudice or
self-inter est can for a* moment doubt
that it is the trno policy and inleiest
of New Westminster to havo control
of pilotage in the liver and to have
river pilots.
Ancillary to the question we have
been discussing is that of watching
the channel nt tiie Samlhcuds and
keeping the buoys in order. That
the existing means of doing this has
not been successful and cannot possibly be satisfactory must be universally felt. It is even admitted by
the Dominion .Agent himself. The
steamer- Douglas is entirely unfitted
for tho service, owing to her drnft of
water and sharp bottom; not- can
she be as much on (lie ground ns is
receBsa'-y, especially du»ing the cummer freshet, when constant surveillance is necessary. What would appear to ho demanded for the service
is a steam barge or scow of light
draft and sufficient power, to be constantly employed iu the river—such
vessel to bo fitted with derrick nnd
the necessary machinery nnd tackle
for lifting and handling buoys readily. During summer freshet her constant presence at the Sandheads
would bo necessary. During the
rest of the year she could profitably
employ spui-e tirno in removing snags
and other obstruction to navigation.
It might be practicable to have a
duly-qualified river pilot in chnrge
of the vessel, and thus ho wonld
havo tho most nmplo opportunity of
becoming acquainted with and keeping tho run of the channel through
the sands, keeping the marks in perfect order, and with unerring accuracy and confidence conducting ships
through. By this niouns tho navigation would bB perfect and the Fraser
river would enjoy the reputation to
which it is entitled as offering the
greatest facilities for navigation, being the easiest to enter, of any river
debouching on tho coast.
It would involve too great an expenditure. Who snys thatl Six thousand dollars would provide the vessel and five thousand dollars a year
would operate it. if the Dominion
cannot afford to expend that amount
in maintaining a proper and efficient
supervision of this the great natural
artery of British Columbia with its
rapidlygrowingcommerce—-—well, it
bad better sell out! The fact of the
matter is Canada has not yet come
to at all adequately realize the value
•nd importanco of hor Pacific possession, and the sooner sho is brought
to understand the great importance
of this river and of the functions it
must ever dischnrgo, no matter how
many railways may bo built, :is the
outlet and inlet for the commerce ot
a country possessing immense resources, tbe better will it bo for her
and it. There has in the past been
far too much penny wisdom nud
pound foolishness ubput tho man
ugement of such matters, and there
cannot bo the slightest doubt that to
place the marine interests of the
Lower fraser upon some such foot
ing as wo have hastily and very
imperfectly sketched would prove to
be tho most economical in the ond,
while it wonld be,'which is of stilt
greater importance, immeasurably
more efficient and conducive to the
development of tho commercial and
maritime interests of the country,

As tho readers of tho'Columbian are
awaro, Mr. Maloney has for some
months past been e-ngagud in building
a steamer, ill his ship-yard at the low
er end of thia city, for Capt, Rogers
and A. C. Fraser, Esq. The bout waa
launched on Wednesday morning. The
Bteamer Ada, Capt. Rogers, conveyed
a number of ladies and gentlemen
froni tho city to witness the inlercst-
ing ceremony, and quito a num-Hbr
moro hud walked down, Thu morning
was clear and crisp, with brilliant sunshine, all the more welcome after the
muggy weathor which had preceded it.
About 9 o'clock, all things being ready,
Mr. Maloney knocked out the last key
and tho ship glided smoothly down tho
well-greased ways—as she struck thu
water, Misa Susie Rdgera, who Stood
bravely on her bow, breaking the orthodox bottlu of ehampiigiiu over thu
cutwater, naming her "
".UO'jIkHT D0KSM01B,"
amid the cheers of the spectators.
"What a beauty," "lan'fc sho lovely I"
weija thu exclamations one heard oil
evory bund. "And she did look "lovely," sitting on thu water ns lightly and
gracefully as a swan, drawing only two
feet aft and ouo foot forward. Her
limn seem to us to bo just perfect, and
Mr. fllalonoy may wall feci proud tif
his work, while Messrs, Fraser it Rogers may equally fuel proud of their
boat, Thu Ada took the now atoamor

and will bu finished in good stylo and
provided with powerful machinery, to

It was a happy thought nnd, wo

than any othor man in tho country, is
a living personification of Industry,
Perseverance and Success.

Aa will appear from his letter which
wo publish in anothor column, Mr.
Eraser ia justly indignant nt tho way
tho Land and Works Department discharges, or rather fails to discharge,
ita commonest functions. And no
wonder. Tlio wonder is not that poople ore waning indignant, but that
thoy have buon so long-suffering under
such treatment. Our esteemed correspondent asl;a who is to blamu for
thu disgraceful negligencu which constitutes thu immediate subject of complaint. Thoro can be no doubt about
tho answer. It is the Government.
To bo more exact, it is tlio head of the
Lands aud Works .UOpartinent. It is
quite true, theoretically speaking, that
thero ia, right at Granville, nn oflicer
whoau duty ia BUpposed to be to look
after such matters! and at tho first
blush it might bo imagined that ho 'Ib
tho party to blame. But those acquainted with the tnio inwardness of
tho Department and its prosont head
know bettor. There ia such an amount
f rod-lapo and downright meanuoas
about tho way the atlaira of that Depart men t aro administered that no
officer of tho Government can be oxpected to tako thu responsibility of
acting in such  matters without first
porting the nitVcrgoncy aud obtaining
^instructions." Nay, if he did it would
bu matter of doubt whether lie could
got men to do the work; so well haa-i't
como to be understood that it is really
worth ns inuch to get mio's rtay from
tho bond of ihat Department as it is tn
earn it. H is that Milliliter who ru-
quiros School Trustees to send fn a
formal requisition before they uro allowed to purchase a broom for tho use
of tho school, and then to furnish

He is ono of Columbia's most cuter-

Persona! iim] Historical.
In tho Nanaimo Free Press of tho
2nd inst. appeared a report of a caso
which occupied tho court at Nanaimo
for half a day. During the trial the
presiding judge, Chief Justice Sir M.
B. Begbie; mado some extraordinary
observations with reference to the
ttovernor-General's approval of certain
pilotage by-laws. His principal observation wns published in the Ooi.u.u-
niAN of the 9th, and the local Government (jjrgan makes the item a pretext
for one of his venomous attacks upon
the editor of this journal. If tho statement attributed to tlio Chief .Justice id
not correct, the fault 'lie:i clearly with
Iho Nanaimo Free Press, and not with
the Cpt.ff-MCUir, for we Said nothing
which tlie Original report in tho InV
nninio paper does not'completely-justify. Uot the organ doo3 not content
himself wiih this. He goes on ns usual
to iliug about assertions and insinuations wliich any person possessing Lhe
instincts of a mtn would bu ashamed
of. Hu refers again to the old uiiaii- of
"twenty years ago," whon thu editor
of this journal was thrust into prison
by tin; aitino Judge for alleged '-'contempt of court."_ The "Victoria Letter" of tho organ alao attempts to hiip-
ploinuiit tho editorial paragraph", but
it ia pretty well understood that thu
"Victoria Letter" is written iu thi
city and by the same. llaiJd that wrut
the editorial. This will help people l:i
perceive thu "true inwardness" of tlio
Victoria Letter. Aa thero aro many
now in tho country who know nothing
(if events whicli transpired here twenty
years ago, we propose briefly tn statu
the facts of the so-called ''Contempt of
court" casoi About twenty years ago.
wliun British Columbia was a crown
colony, and Mr. Iinbsou', in tho capacity of editor of tho Dkttjsh OoiiUH-
r.iAN newspaper, was vigorously contending for the rights of-the people
and thu pi'cso-, a communication (written by a very respectable clergyman
thuii at Cariboo) appeared in thai
journal. This communication criticised tho conduct of Judge Bcgbio ill
connection with certain'land speculations with which he was believed to
bo connected. At tho assizes held in
this city some weeks after tho publication of tlio letter Judge Begbie had
Mr. Robacih brought before him, informed him that ho had buen guilty of
"contempt of court,1' and announced
that unless he apologized; or retracted
thu statement contained in thu letter,
ho would be committed to prison. Mr.
Unbenti replied that tho communication had bean received'and published
iu tKo regular way,.uud in good faith,
and it would not bo possilde for hint
to apologize or retract until ho had au
opportunity of communicating with the
aikhor ti .id ascertaining the grounds
upon whicli the statements restod. He
pointed out that an apojogy or jetnio-
tion mndo undor sueh qivcuinstances
(iu order to evade imprai-nmcnijoouhl
not help tho Judge's reputation. But
the Judge would listen to neither reason nor argument. In tho exercise of
his autocratic powers ho committed
Mr. llou3on to prison, .where hu remained for threo days, This is tho
history of Mr. Robson simprisonnlent,
and it is a piece of colonial history
which may certainly bu repeated without discredit to himsolf. It is worth
while to mention that the Judge's arbitrary nnd unjust, conduct on that
memorable occasion met with a moat
emphatic condemnation from all
classes. An indignation meeting was
at onco held iu this city, attended by a
very largo number of the most promt*
pent and influential, citi/ci, when
resolutions were passed denouncing
tho Judge and expressing sympathy
for tha editor. And the British Columbia press of that d:iy, without u
single exception, stood up fm* thu
journalist who had siiii'oied unjustly in
the cause of liberty. Ilut in those
days the newspapers of thia province
wure conducted by men Who, Although
often fiercely opposed to each other
on political und otho? public qtlctitioitfl,
never descended tu tho level of tho
Guardian. There ave no rights too
sacred, anil thero is no cause top high
and niible, to bo beyond tho reach of
the dirt thrown by t!i"u unprincipled
editor of that scurrilous sheet.

A Public Grievance.
Editor OoiotfuiAN.—Having occasion to visit New Westminster* I left
Granville Inst Tuesday with a horso
and hiiimy at 1 p. nf. About half n
milo after starting I encountered a log
acrosB tho road. Thin necessitated unharnessing the horse and lifting the
buggy over the stump. 1 again started
on my journey and had proceeded aa
far an the bridgea, which, aa you no
awaro, arc situated about ono Utile anil
a half from Granville, Ono of the
bridges was rendered impassable, being smashed, a tree having fallen tici-osa
it. Again I had to unharness, and
while my wife held tho horse I litted
tho bugj-y ovor thu log. You may imagine my surprisb when about three-
quai'teva of a milo further ou I was
stopped by another tree across tho
rond, Onco more I had to tai.o tlm
horse out. and drag thu buptry ovor the
obstacle. Now, Sir, all tliis damage
to the road waa done hist Sunday afternoon, owing to tho galo of that dny.
I made my journey Tuesday afternoon.
I wish to ask if sufficient time had not
elujised to allow of tho'clearing of those
trees put of tho way. I way accompanied by my wife and child and in
consequence of the hardships wo encountered I think you will agree witli
mu that my position was thu reverse of
pleasant I am informed that there
is u Guveiinuent olliciai at tlio Inlet,
whoau duty it ia to liuyu these obstacles cleared off. Yot two days passed
nnd nothing wus done. I was threo
hours, on a bitter culd day, making a
journey of threo miles. I paid S-'M
for luxes last year aud may add that I
have kept tho road from tho North
Arm to Granville open for tho last iivu
years without remuneration, Tu conclusion, Sir, I desiru to know who is
responsible for this gross neglect. By
informing mo you will not only oblige
thb undersigned .but, confer a favor on
all the people of Granville,

Caution.
We beg to call the attention of tho
trade and the public to the well-known
quality and olojjonco of. finish of our
Gold Case.-!, guaranteed hy lis to be of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S; Mint assay
or of fourteen karat Cold,, ns may hi
stfljirpedj and also to oiir mode of soiling
the samo, charging oaly for the Actual
Wkioht of the gold lined, and not for
the huso metal eonipriseo in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc. .-To illustrate
which a tug accompanies each onu of our
Cold Cases, wliich plainly indicates not
only the gross weight of the case; but
also the Net weight of t.io.golu\     ,-■ ■
In explanation o: the above we desire
to any tlmt the old pktnof charging for
the gross weight of the caao, tfo-U it were
all gold, worked welt enough as long iia
the manufacturers were content with the
amount of brass nnd steel actually re
quired iu its construction; but when tho
buatneaawas degraded into a contest as
to who should get tlie most base rnotal
into tho least 'piuntiiy of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the tone cmnu when,
in thu interest of dealers in American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
plan of selling, skoyviiig tiie buyer exactly how much GOLD each cu.se contained.
To avoid imposition', purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
bears our trade mark on both case and
movement. Cold cases nre stumped "A.

company them. .Silver eases nre Stamped
'.'A. M. Watch. Co., 'Waltlm-i^Ma:-!*.,
Btorling silver," und nre accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed R. K. Rob-
bins, treasurer; The uunie "Wuitham"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered neecs-
sary liy reason of the fact, that our enses
are frequently separated from our movements, nnd put upon worthless movements, of other makers nml vice rami.,
thus affecting injuriously the performance of the watches-, nnd vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly mado
by us. It is necessary also, because it is
fo notorious ns to be a public scandal
that there is great fraud in tlie tiictai
quality ol both gold and silver cases os
now generally sold. \Vn lmvo demonstrated hy frequent assays that imray
cold nud silver coses offered in tbo market arc debased from 10 to 20 per cent,
from the quality they assume to be.
This is a fraud upon the purchaser, and
accounts for the low price at which such
eased watches have been sold.—AmKM-

CHAPTER XH.
FINDING   HIS   LKVEL.
'Continued,)
While they conversed in low tones
the room began to till, and one nnd
another bf tho new-comers looked with
disapproval at the unaccustomed visitor in the corner. Tffo ladies hesitated to take the next table, which
was the only one vacant, saying audibly something about a smell of smoke.
Mrs. Bennett, who had seen their
manoeuvre, hoped that Ronald would
not notice the remark, but his quick
ear caught it, and rising, he said at
once, with a bow, "Excuse me; I assure you I do not smoke," but at tlie
same time he drew his chair a Iii tic
farther away.
The elder of the two ladies looked
annoyed; but they took their places,
nevertheless, and ordered their lunch-
•eon. /
uIf you have finished, ma'am, we
thtfuld be glad of the table," said the
waitress to -Mrs. Bennett, shortly
afterward.
"Ah yes, ffe are "keeping it too long,"
replied Ronald, rising and paying -for
the luncheon. As he moved the chairs,
and stood back tr Ulow his mothor to
pass, he felt that every one was watching him; and he was walking out of
the room with head erect, when a lady
and gentleman entered, and there waa
a momentary pause, as a waitress, tray
'Jn hand, barred the way.
The "entleman—a stout man, in a
light suit—looked again, and spoke.
"Surely X know your face—met you
somewhere."
"Yea, in different clothes, skating
on Airthrey Loch."
"To be sure; Mr. Bennett, I think.
I never forget a face; heard you en-
lilted," aaid Mr. Hardwicke, shaking
hands with Ronald, and glancing at
Mrs. Bennett.
"My mother, Mr. Hardwicke," said
Ronald.
"My sister, Mr. Bennett; she's just-
home from schodl—hardly knows Tillybodle," returned Hardwicke. "Have
jou haa lunch ? Pity—might have had
it 'together. How d'ye like the servicer
"It's not as bad as it's painted," replied Ronald, smiling.
"Ah—wish I was in it—wanted to
go in—guardians wouldn't let me—
might have done some good then. Are
you ataying in Edinburgh, Mrs. Bennett ?"
"Only for tha day. I came to see
my son."
"My carriage is at the door; couldn't
it take you anywhere 7 Pray use it."
"We shall be some time to lunch-
Ernest likes to lunch wall," added
Miss Hardwicke, smiling.
"Of course — something to do.
Where will you go, Mrs. Bennett V
Mrs. Bennett was about to decline,
but Ronald interposed. "You are
very kind indeed, and I know my
mother is tired. I shall be vory glad
if she can go to the National Gallery."
"Certainly—come along —I'll put
you in. Laura, get the carte and
choose the soup — not '-the rest,
though.
So saying, Mr. Hardwicke escorted
Mrs. Bennett down-stairs^ and, to the
amazement of the shop-girls, she and
liar ion>drove off in a neat brougham.
"Well, that's a good fellow," said
Ronald, "and I remember I thought
him an ass. Na wonder; I wus too
-great an ass myself then to do otherwise."
"I never heard of these peoplo before," said his Bister to Hardwicke, as
lhe sat down and began to study the
•carte; you seem very friendly with
them; just a private soldier, isn't he 1"
"Ye«ryou have heard of them. Tho
■old lady is the wife of the Tillybodle
minister.   Son ran away from home,
and enlisted.   I barely know him—
heard all about him—sorry for his old
mother; sorry for him, for he is another of them."
"Another of whom?"
"Another of   us—man who loved
Muriel Forbes—only it wrecked him
and saved me—that's the difference."
"Ernest, that sounds as if you had
been something dreadful.   I wiali you
wouldn't speak so."
"So I was—dreadful ass—am an ass
still, but I know it—that's different;
mean to try and help other asses—another difference; and she did it. Will
you have apirlings? They may be
good. Lobsters can't be eatable here."
"Well," said the head waitress,
meanwhile, as she paused to speak to
har companions in the aliop, "Mrs.
Bennett may be all right, and Mr.
Hardwieka'i quite the gentleman; but
if Mr. Bennett comes hero again I'll
Set the manager in, for there's five
liferent parties spoke about him today."
So true it ia that the fickle British
public will cheer itself hoarse one day
over a departing or incoming regiment,
and will turn the cold shoulder tbe
next on individuals whose uniform
ought to be their pride.
In the quiet rooms of the gallery,
with only lovely Mrs. Graham's eyes
gazing at them from ths canvas, mother and son resumed their interrupted
talk; and there, as gently as he could,
ha told her that in a fow months he
must tail for India to join the headquarters of his regiment, and tried to
make her comprehend that be could
nat by any possibility remain with the
linked battalion in tha Castle.
True remorse for hia mad act had
never smitten Ronald till he saw his
mother cowerim? down on the crimson
ottoman beside him, as though shrink
ing from some mortal blow. She hid
her face so long in her hands that at
last, alarmed at her silence, he touched
her, and whispered a loving word in
her ear.
She looked up at him, her face
blanched, har eyes glistening with un-
•had tears.
"Ronald, if you go abroad it will
kill ma!"
''Mother, you taught me to love
honor, did you not ?"
"Yea-well T
"Well, you know my only honor
aow ii in going on well with my pro-
leuion; and you surely know, too, that
I cannot leave it. Would you like
your father's grandaon—a MacGregor's
jpandaon—to be caught as a deserter 1
or would you prefer to have him
branded as a coward ? They are tho
only alternatives."
"Why as a coward?"
"Because there is a rumor of war,
and, therefore, I could not, oven if I
wished it, take my discharge now. No,
mother, you must not bo less brave
than your forbears,"
This was an argument that appealed
to Marian Bennett's heart; but though
she acknowledged its force, sho raised
herself wearily and shook her bead.
"To endure, to endure, and always
to endure. That's tho owre-word of
some women's lives—it has been so
with mol"
"And what says our old proverb,
mother?—'Ho that tholes, ower-
comes.'"
"Ay, laddie, it's easy talking; men1
work cases their troubles, but a woman's griefs nro about her day and
night. Well, well, I'll do my best;
and mind you ibis, laddie—I can bear
trials that como in tho natural course
of .life, but what I could not boar
would be to know ynu were unworthy."
"Mother," said Donald, bravely, "I
hopo I may never causa you another
heartache by anything I do. I've had
my schooling und my paiks,1' he continued, moro lightly, "but I mean to
be a gude bairn henceforth; believe
that, and let me think it's some comfort to you."
"Tho boat you can givo mo, my dear
bairn,"said Mrs. Bennett, with shining
eyes.
"That's woll; and now I fear you
must be goinjj, or you'll miss your
train," said he. And leaning ou her
boy's arm, Mrs. Bennett walked along
Princes Street, crowded at that hour,
to the Waverley Station, and did not
even reiloct that her old friends might
chance to meet hev, and might look
askunse nt her on his account.
Had they done so sho would havo
rogarded them with pride ns great as
their own, for Ronald was more hers
to-day than ho hud been for yoars. Ho
had spoken freely to hor, and she w
content.
CHAPTER Xni.
A   P 11 B S11   8 T A It T.
When Mra. Bennett reached homo
her husband waa waiting at tho door
of his study, and followed her into the
parlor, poking tlie lire restlessly, while
tbo old maid-servant, atrdous to seo to
her mistress' comfort after lior unwonted absence, lingered about her,
putting a chair for hor near tho hearth.
She was anxious too, old Nancy, for
she knew what errand had taken Mrs.
Bennett away; but she would not utter tbe, question that was on her lips,
because tbe minister was by. For the
Bamo reason Mrs. Bennett only gave
hor a nod aud a smile—a faint and
wan smile—and said, "I'd like a 0up
of tea, Nancy—I'm tired;" whereupon
Nancy left the room, thinking within
herself lhat that weary voice could
have no good uows to tell.
There was silence when husband and
wife were left alono—sho sitting ou a
low seat, her listless bands ou her
knees, her sad eyes fired on the blazing coals; be standing, a dark figure
against tho ruddy light, with aidelong
glance at her drooping head, and heart
too proud to question her.
At last ho spoke in a 'one shapen-
ed bv anxious impatience — "Well,
wife f"
She raised herself, and looking him
straight iu the face, said slowly, "Ronald is well. Ho will get on. He —
goea to India-in about sh months."
"What do you say? How 1 The First
ia quartered in Edinburgh."
"Tho First is not his regiment, yon
must remember; be joins the Second
Regiment with tlie ne::t draft."
Bennett walked to the window and
drummed with his lingers on the panes,
each sound going sharply through his
wife's aching head.
"Did ho ask for mo—or wish—to aee
mo?'' ho inquired, without turning
round.
"Ho said he supposed you bad not
wished to see him; you wore always so
stern to bim, and he was neither clover
enough nor good enough to satisfy you.
Ho said it had often seemed to hiin ho
had no father; ho knew that you never
loved him ns 1 did."
These sentences were uttered in a
monotonous tunc, as though the speaker did not expoct them to produce any
effect, and was merely answering mechanically the questions that had boen
put to her.
Again there was a pause, till on her
startled ear broke a sigh tliat was almost a sob, nnd a smothered exclamation, "ily boy—my boy !"
She turned and looked, and in tho
fading light she saw her husband leaning hfo betid on his clasped hands
against the window, and hor heart
leaped.
Was it only by losing her boy that
ahe was to find again tho loving companion of her youth ? Would the
stern nature unbend at last, ho that bo
and ahe might comfort each oilier in
their lonely old ago \ She rose, leaning for support upon a chair, half fearing a rebuff, half awod by Bennett's
unwonted   attitude.
"James!" she said, timidly; aud
again,   "Jamosl"
Bennett did not speak; but he
strotchod out bin hand iu mute appeal,
and she tottered rather than walked
across tlio room, and thing hor anus
round bin neck, drawing toward hor
the still hidden faco.
"Husband!"—she had not so addressed him for months—"come to
the firesido and lot us talk together,
Let me see into your mind aa I did
when we were young -and oh, let
there bo peace between us!"
So with tears and gentle force sho
led him to her own arm-chair, nnd sitting by liim, laid her hand in his and
drew hiin on to speak.
To that outpouring of the BtJcrots of
a reserved nature no stranger ear
should listen. Now and again such a
character creases our path, and we recognize with pity, the coldness that
covers inward tire, tho harshness aud
reserve that hide such agonies of self-
immolation, such atrivings aftor the
fulfilment of duty, aa aro unknown to
happier souk
