Shall Wc Borrow?
it is believed <joti<milly that this
HPusoii will lio one of great prosperity and advancement in British
Columbia. After long nnd anxious
waiting, prosperous times seem actually lo have reached us. Last ynijr
the mioi'gy of returning activity wns
clearly felt. Tn tlio Yalo district
railway work contributed very.largely to the in.provcin«nli of business,
and in this district also towards tho
close of tho season. There is every
reason to expect that a considorably
larger force of railway workers will
bo employed .during the coming sum-
inm-, and that the demand for food
ami oilier products will bo propor
tiointtoly increased. There has been
n marked increase also in the number of people who have come with
(.he intention of becomingnermanont
residents. Uritish Columbi,; never
wns before so well known to tlie outside world, and hor climate and resource!] wore never so well under
stood. Railway.construction in this
country, as elsewhere, will certainly
ho followed bythe establishment of
a number of towns along tlio line.
Port Moody is already growing into
a place of some importance, and
Port Haney, on the Fraser, may also
realize the expectations of its found
era and some day rank as tin important city. What are the people of
Now Westminster doing towards attracting business and population 1
Nothing that wo know of. 'A rail
way has been projected from this
pity to .Port Moody, and there aie
several schemes fer railway:; to con
nect us with tho Northern Pacific as
soon as it reaches the boundary.
Whellici- any practical result will be
obtained from these schemes wo do
not know; but howevor desirable
and important they may be a
sources of profit to the eity, it a\
pears to us there are other schemes
less costly and perhaps more feasible
which should uot ho lost sight of.
Not long ago Mr. E. Brown submitted to tho City Council a scheme
proposing to borrow $35,000 for city
improvements, Tho scheme itsolf
scorned to us very imperfect, but it
is much too important to lie neglected upon the table. Wc are satisfied
that. New Westminster will nevor bo
able to take that place in the commercial world to which hor splendid
situation aud natural advantages
entitle her unless a large sum of
money is borrowed for city purposes.
Instead of 830,000 we should have
$50,000, for the smaller sum will by
. no means accomplish what is urgently needed. Air. Brown's scheme
proposed to pay oil' tho entire loan
in 20 years. We believe the interest
only should be paid for the first 20
years, and then new debentures
should be issued for the payment of
the principal during the succeeding
2H. If the city has not power to do
ibis, let it appl,)' to tho Legislature
for such power; and wc believe if
a proper scheme for the expenditure
of that money on permanent improvements were submitted to tho
Legislature, the necossary legislation
could bo obtained. The season fur
action is rapidly approaching. If
this money is to bo borrowed and
expended, action ahould be taken
without delay. If larger powers are
needed than our city charter now
provides, they should be sought at
tho approaching session of the Legislature, It will not do to lot another
year pass, or we may find when too
late that the Hood tide upon which
wo might have ridden to fortune
has left us to the mercy of the ebb,
At another time wc shall point out
Boino of the objects upon which we
b«lie*o the loan should be expended,

[For thi Columbian.]
To Laura.
O minstrel I strike the harp again,
And slug, nor heed these falling tears;
The notes of thy melodious strain
Recall to mo tho vanished years.
Thoy bring before my tearful gaze—
Illumined with a tender light—
A vision of my youthful days,
When life's unclouded morn was bright.
Again I see, ns in a dream,
The face of one remembered well,
Whose pensive eyes as sadly beam
As when we, parting, said Farewell.
Yes, minstrel I yos, mothinks I hoar
The voice, that many, years ago
First poured upon my list, -ning ear
That plaintive strain so sweet and low.
'Tin fancy—for that voice ia still,
And music's charm hath lost its power
To drivo away ths ghost of ill,
That haunts mc every day and hour.
And that fair angel face, that gleams
So sad in memory's waning fight,
Has-faded liko the last star-beams
That, trembling, loavo the darksome
night,
0 pnlc sweet Laura! thou art fled,
And joy from mo has past away:
1 walk in darkness 'mong tho dead—
A wretch that hates tho living dayl

Communications wore received aa follows:—From G. E. Corbould, regarding
road tax; from Moodyville Sawmill Company, protesting against having been
taxed for land' not belonging to them;
from Jno. Hindi, stating that 6-J days'
work was put on repairing bridge and
culvert; from Hon. w. J. Armstrong,
acknowledging receipt ef financial statement of Corporation for 1882; report
from road committee of Ward No. 2,
stating that thoy have let contracts for

Council, to Messrs. Towers k Motcalf;
tender from Mr. Isaac for building bridge
on road opposite his house, according to
specifications, for $75.
The road committee of Ward No. 1
was authorized to let a contract for road
repairs near Mr, Best's lot.
The Clerk was instructed to communicate with the municipal councils of Surrey, Delta, and Richmond, and to aak
their co-operation in testing the constitutionality of collecting road tax in any
of the muuicipalitiea of British Columbia.
Tho Collector wrb instructed to notify
all retail traders within the municipality
that unless their licenses are paid by
Feb. 10, they shall be summoned to appear on March 4 before tho Justice of the
Pcaco for violation of the Traders Bylaw.
The different bonds as signed for officers for tho present year wen accepted.
He sat Down.
We were running through South
Carolina when a great big giant of a
fellow with a terrible tye and a voice
liko a fog-horn boarded tht train at a
small station. I think most of the
passengers sized him up as a chap
whom it wonld bo dangerous to argue
with, but the giant wasn't satisfied
with that. Ha blustered nt the conductor, growlod at the brakemun and
looked around aa if sucking some one
to pick n fuss with, Everybody answered him civilly, and he had two or
three seats to himself, but the man
who wants a row can generally find
somo pretext. About the center of
tho car a pale-looking chap about twenty-live years old occupied a sunt and
was reading a newspaper. After a
time the giant rubbod along to whero
the young man sat and growled out:
"Stranger, what may be tho firat
cost of such a hat as yours 7"
The young man looked up with a
flash in his big blue eyes, and thon
turned to his paper without replying.
, "Hey! did you hear mol roared
the other, as ho loaned over tht seat
and lifted tho hat o(T the young man's
head.
Quicker thau one could count six n
shining revolver camo from you
couldn't tell where, liftod itself on ii
level with tho big man's oye, nnd tho
whito fingers clutching the butt nover
trembled a hair's breadth as a quick
voice uttered tlio words:
"Drop that hatl"
Tho hat fell from tho giant's grasp,
and tho quiet voico continued:
"Now ynu Bit down or I'll kill you I"
Tho inusudo of the weapon was not
six inches from the man's eye, and I
saw him turn from red to whito in ten
seconds. Ho backed away at the command, sat down in a scat opposite, and
never stood up or spoko another word
during his rido of twenty miles. Ho
had a "navy" undor his coat, but
something in that quiot voice and bluo
eye warned him that tht move of a
finger on his part would crash a bulltt
into his head.—Detroit Free Press.
A married man was dreadfully hard
pushed to satisfy all his wife's caprices,
as sho liad a fresh one overy day.   Wt
subjoin tho latest specimen: "Louis,
dear, I am afraid I give ynu a great
deal of trouble,-but there is just ono
wish of mine I should like yuu to accede to." "Say on, love; what ii itl"
"No, I am sure you won't consent this
time.'1 "You know that I have always
gratified your wishes hitherto, and I
am prepared to do it again. Tell mo
what it ia." "Now don't be angry;
but I ahould so much liko tu be a
widow I'' It is not recorded whether
the compliant husband there aud then
performed the "happy despatch."

It costs from 30 to 60 cents to
stop a train. This is tlio result ol
an investigation which lias lately
been made by railway men in tlio
United States. Tlio cost is made
up of ninny items—wear and tear of
rails and brakes, coal wasted and
jiay of train men while the train is
standing or in slow motion.
The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has decided that a railway
company is liable for damage to passengers resulting from insufficient
accommodation. A young woman
entered v. car which was so crowded
that sho could find no seat. The ear
Btartud suddenly und threw lior
down, inflicting very aerious injury.
She obtained $10,000 damages from
the company.
A despatch from Pittsburg, Pa.,
announces another magnificent claim
ant scheme, and statos that papers of
ejectment have already been made
out. This time it is tho Skene estate, lying in tho State of Now York,
and roughly estimated to bo worth
$200,000,000. The property, it is
asserted, was granted by the English
crown to Major Skene, in 1771.
During the levolutionary war it was
confiscated by the Stato of New
York nnd sold. The claimants maintain that the confiscation was illegal,
and that their right to the property
is beyond dispute. They have secured excellent counsel, and propose
testing the matter. The claimants
are residents of Great Britain, and
are persons of rank and titlo. They
will be more fortunate than most
' other claimants if they succeed.
In a recent issue wc mentioned
that the agitation for a revision of
the law of libel, as it affects newspapers, had lately been revived in
the East, Canadian exchanges re
ceived by the last mail show tliat
the matter in receiving a great deal
of attention. The press of Toronto,
Hamilton, London, Ottawa, and
Montreal is united in condemning
the present law. The Toronto Globe
says: "The majority of Canadian
newspapers will agree that they
must take defensive measures. The-
law of libel, as it stands at present,
is too ono-sidod. Any enterprising
adventurer, no matter how disreputable, can sue a newspaper without
giving security for costs. Frequently it is those with no character to
lose who go to law; peoplo with
good records are content with a suitable correction or a frank apology."
How Not to do it!
It has been said tbat the Chinese
question in this provinco has.been
made a political hobby-horse upon
which opposing parties have attempted to ride into power. Possibly there
may bo a good deal of truth in the
remark. It is quite certain that
both parties have been saying a great
deal about tho Chinese question of
late, and blaming each other for
want of action or want of sincerity.
The lato Walkem-Beaven Administration professed to bo anxious that
Chinese immigration should be restricted, and tlmt the employment of
Chinese on public works should be
discouraged. But if they had any
desire to accomplish these ends
(which may fairly be admitted) they
certainly did little or nothing in that
direction. There were several clauses
in the last speech from the throne
respecting Chinese, and we are told
that an order-in-council was not long
ago passed looking to a settlement
of the vexed question. But what
practical steps did they take 1 None
whatever, so far as the outsido world
has yet been able to learn. If the
Chinese now in British Columbia
woro expelled to-morrow, their absence would be a greater curse than
their presence now is. As matters
now stand tho Chinese are a necessary evil, and thoir labor in many
departments could not bo dispensed
with without great inconvenience
and loss. The Chinese question cannot be settled until a substitute for
Chinese labor has been found, and it
■ is to this that the Government
should have add reused itself for a
satisfactory solution of tlio difficulty.
What this country wants just now
is an emigration policy wliich will
bring to our shores mon enough to
carry on and develop our industries.
While that is boing accomplished
measures should bo takon to prevent
the immigration of Chinese, and to
keep thorn as much as possible from
public works. Very recently we
came into possession of a fact which
shows up the complete hollowness
of the late Government's professed
anxiety to got rid of the Chinese,
and their gross neglect of the best
interests of the country. It has
transpired that Mr. Onderdonk,
shortly after ' receiving the contract
for the Emory-Port-Moody seotion
of the railway last summer offered
tho Provincial Government $75,000
towards bringing 1,000 laborers to
this province, on condition that they
would remain two yean on the railway works. But tlie Government do-
dined the offer! Now, everybody
krows that the people of this conn-
try have long been crying out for
population. Many of our industries
have been almost paralyzed and our
resources have remained undeveloped because men could not be had for
love or money. In the absence of
white men, Chinese laborers had to
be employed, and hence tho Chinese
grievance. When the matter was
brought to tbe notice of Sir John
Macdonald last year he declared
that the Government of British
Columbia had never so much as intimated that there was a Chinese
grievance in this province, nud that
he was not aware of the fact i And
this is the Government which has
lately, been attempting to make the
people believe thnt it had been filled
with anxiety for a settlement of tbo
Chinese question I The cost of bringing 1,000 lnborers froin Great Britain
would probably not exceed $100,000,
and if they came from the oastern
provinces or the United Stales, the
cost would be considerably less. The
expenditure of $25,000 of provincial
funds would, therefore, hnvo secured
for us 1,000 laborers, a large proportion of whom would undoubtedly
have remained in the country. One
can scavcely imagine any satisfactory
plea upon which the late Government could possibly excuse its gross
carelessness and criminal neglect in
refusing to consider so liberal an
oiler. While it was sinking thousands of dollars in a dry-dock at
Esquimalt which should not hate
cost us a cent, and which is of very
little value to the province as a
whole, it could not afford to supplement Mr. Onderdonk's generous offer
by the addition of $20,000 or $25,-
000. It will be remembered that
Mr. Onderdonk previously offered
$250,000 to the Dominion Government to assist iu furnishing white
laborers for his railway works, but
that proposition met with no response. If our own Government had
been doing ita duty we have every
reason to believe that a joint emigration scheme could have been carried
out successfully by It and the Dominion Government whioh would have
brought thousands of poople to this
province. I.i another issue we shall
have something more to say on the
question of emigration. In the mean
time it is proper lo remark that the
the facts above stated show that if
railway work in this province ia
largely done by Chinanmen, the fault
is not Mr. Orderdonk'i. He hu
certainly done more than eould have
been expected of him in the way of
introducing white laborers. We
cannot say as much for either tho
Provincial o: Dominion Government.

to the road severely wounded, and
told tho driver that four men had been
killed at tho atore. Ho stated that
somo mon rushed into the storo and
begau firing shots. He was struck and
rendered unconscious. When lio recovered consciousness he found the
storekeeper and clerk dead, aud near
tho door two strangers, both shot
through tho body. Ho thinks that
after he fell the fight was kept up, and
that.the storekeeper and clerk received
their wounds and killed their assailants
before dying. He left the place aa
soon a3 possible, aud finally becoming
weak from tho loss of blood, wna
obliged to crawl on the ground.
The stage drove to Gold Mountain
and found ihe bodies as described.
Thoro were evidences of a fearful
■druggie. Tho men were lying in pooh
of blood, frozen stiff, with thoir weapons alongside of thorn. Tlie stage
went on to Silver Poak, thirty miles
away, and thero found the storekeeper
and Ida two clerka dead in tho store,
they having boon shot, tho store rifled
of its contents and the safe gutted.
These threo mon were the only ones
living at the station, the place being
patronized by the miners in the vicinity. It is generally believed that tho
Silver peak robbery took placo first
and that -tho robbers mado across tho
country on horseback aud made the
second raid. It is said that during tho
past week five tinned, well-mounted
men wero seen in the vicinity of pan-
delnria. At that point thoro is intense
feeling over tho affair, and armed mon
aro scouring tho country in pursuit of
tho desperadoes, and it is thought that
thoy will not escape.
A Bill has boon introduced into
Congress at Washington, by Mr. Anderson, designed to establish a postal
telegraph system similar to that of
England without the expenditure of
a dollar by tho government. It pro-'
yides for issuing 83,000,000 worth of
bonds redoamablo in 20 yeaw, and
payable in 30 yoars at 3 por cont.,8300,-
000 to be retained each yoar to be applied to the redemption of bonds.
Tho main lino is to oxtend from Portland, Mo., to Topoka, Kansas, with '■
branches to all points'deemed advisable. The offices which will first bo
established will be carrier post offices,
and if considered fear-able by tho postmaster general, in the smaller offices a
uniform rato of 25 cents for ton words
will be the tariff, unless the postmaster genoral, because of competition or
other causes, deems it advisable to reduce the rate.

Tho Chicago Times takoa a gloomy
view of tho busiuoss outlook. It sees
in tho great increase of failures an in
dication ' of a diseased condition of
trade. "The simple truth of the matter is,'! says the .7'i'me-s "Unit failures
have been increasing in number during tlie two past years at a rate that
indicates a ton reckless expansion of
credits, and suggests that it wmld bo
wise to proceed with caution foi1 some
little time to come. A groat deal too
much business is done on credit in
this country—-vastly more than is
necesK-iry. The retail and country
trade should be brought down moro
pearly tt) k cask . basis. There ia
neither rhyme not'-i'eaepu in aayuton
which Jihfts consumers" who pay (heir
delta $$0,000,000 or irforb annually to
pay the debts pf the clMiolio*it and the
reckless. This is a subject to which
both dealers aud consumers should
give -earnest attention;" The same
words will apply ffith equal force to
Canada.
W. II. Balch, in an article in (he
Contemporavy 'Review, bays that newspaper reporters do mors toward.-, tho
detection of crime than professional
detectives and police. There is a groat
deal of truth in this, and there enn be
no doubt that the .diiincliai'tiou of
detectives to give* such information au
l.hey possess to reporters materially
aitls criminals to escape Kotiiiug assists tho law, says the Chicago,Herald,
an nmoh as the 'excessfvo 'cave which
the offender takes to avoid publicity.
Professional criminals are always
known to the police. So long as their
names in connection with iiny robbery
or outrage, arc kept out of the news
paper, thoy put on a bold front, and
defy the officers of the law. Bttt let
the well grounded suspicion or carefully wrought out theory of an intelligent reporter appear in the newspaper,
and a guilty criminal is almost certain
to givo himself away by flight or tho
assumption of an excess of innocence.
It fo the publication of just such
strange clues as reporters, with their
keen scent for news, get hold of that
makes the ''thief fear each bush and
officer," and gota him into the strong
dutches of the law.
An aide-de-camp's room, at Ridoau

We beg to call the attention of the
trade and the public to the well-known
finality and elegance of finish of our
Gold Case-:, guaranteed by us to be of
eighteen karat Gold, U. 9. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Cold, as may he
Stamped, and also to'oar mode of selling
the Maine, charging only for the Acriui,
Wkioiit ol' the gold used, and not for
the hasp metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc. To illustrate
whieh a bag accompanies each one of our
Gold Cases, which plainly indicates not
only the gross weight of the case, hut
also tiie Net weight of tho gold.
.In explanation of the above we desire
to say that the old plan of charging foi'
the gross weight of the east*, as if it were
all gold, worked well enough as long ua
the manufacturers wore content with the
amount of brass and steel actually re
quired in itn construction; but when the
business was degraded into a contest as
to who should got tlie most base metal
into the leant quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the time came when,
in thu interest of dealers in American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
plan of Gelling, .showing the buyer exactly how much Gold each care contained.*
To avoid imposition, purchasers of 'Wsl*
thfliu Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
hears our trade mark on both ease anil
movement. Gold cases are stamped "A-
\V. Co.;" and guarantee certificates ac
company thein. Silver ease.: are stamped
•'.A. M. Watch Co,, Waltham, Mai*.,
sterling i>ilvcr," and arc accompanied by
guarantee certificates,.signed R. E, Rob-
bfais,' treas a rer..' The name -.-Waltliaui"
i3 plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
inarks. This caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our case's
s,l*e frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of other makers and vice versa,
thus afVecting Injuriously the performance of the watches, and vitiating, our
guarantee, whieh fo intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made J
hy us. It fo necessary also, because it is
so notorious aa to be a public scandal
that there is great fraud in the metal
quality of both gold ajid silver eases as
now generally sold. We have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold and silver cases offered iu the market are debased from 10 to 20 per cent.
from the quality they assume to he.
This "is a fraud upon the purchaser, and
accounts for the low price at which such
cased watches have been sold.— Ameri

THE MINISTER'S SON.,
CHAPTER XXII.
FIli-BNDS    A Nil    FOBS.
" Smith is a fool, and Badger—well,
I am not sure what he is, but nothing
vory good, I suspect. What curious
creatures you women aro! You are
delighted with the first fop who can
simper and talk twaddle to you, and
you don't know a man when you seo
one," said ho, meditatively.
'•There now—I suppose you will
think no ono as good as yauv boar for
tho next few weeks/' exclaimed Laura.
"I know exactly how it will be. However silly we may bo, wo don't exalt
one person at the expense of overy
ono else."
"Do I do that ? I didn't mean tn,"
said Hardwicke, simply, and Laura
looked at him affectionately.
"Oh, it's no uso scolding you—you
always give in; so thore's no pleasure
in finding fault. Bring tho bear when
you like, only lionizo him yourself
when you do so.1'
Hardwicke soon found out that
Ronald was a keen lisherman, aud he
at once gave him a permit for tho trout-
stream that ran through tho park at
Broomieknowe. This was a great
pleasure to him; and day after day he
would wander thero with his rod. enjoying the pleasant shade of the beech-
woods, and the lovely glimpses down
tho park jjladea, almost as much as tho
sport.
More than onco Laura and hor
brother, (indin<* him there, brought
lunch out to tlie river-side} and occasionally Laura, passing him in her
solitary walks, stopped to ask after tho
sport, and talk awhile. She found him
invariably tho same; and while in hor
heart sho acknowledged to a certain
respect for him, such as sins did not
usually feel, she was piqued at tlie absolute indifference of liis manner.
"I might be eighty instead of twenty," she said to herself—'.;ho would bo
just as polito, only a little mora attentive. Yes, I really believe he would
be more attentive to an old woman
than ho is to me.' He would think sho
needed help,'and ho would spoak to
her as ho does to his mother, with that
absurd air of deference. He isn't a bit
liko anybody else ono moots; but, dear
me, I suppose he ia a very fine fellow,
as Ernest says.
Thus thought Laura, and by-and by
two littlo incidonU threw light upon
Ronald's character, and made her observe him with increasing interest.
She had mot Captain Badger in Stirling, and he had not been slow to renew his old acquaintance, and had
early made his appearance at Broomieknowe. He called one morning when
silo was alone, and she proposed to
take him down to the stream whero
her brother and Ronald were fishing.
"You know Mr, Bennett, by-the-by,
I think? Isn't he in your regiment?''
"Oh yes; is he here T' The tono was
slighting enough to be noticeable.
"Yes. liy brother likes him so
much."
"And Miss Hardwicke finds him the
soul'of politeness and gallantry ?'•' Baid
the captain, ironically.
"Ho is quite polite," said Laura,
with a smile.
"Quite—and most complimentary.
He must bore you dreadfully," said
Badger, changing his tone, and looking
at her with an air of sympathy.
"I see very littlo of him; he and my
brother lish a gient deal together.
They seom to havu plenty to say."
"No doubt. Of course, Bennett hns
a certain amount of cleverness, or ho
wouldn't bo whero he is; but ho knows
nothing of society—nothing whatever,"
"No —- ah, hero they are," said
Laura, who had her own ideas on tho
Bubject, but was curious to see how
Ronald and her companion would
meet.
"How aro you, Hardwicke? Ah,
Bennett, you here! Why havo you
never beon to look us up in the castle {"
said Badger, with just a shade of difference in his voico as he turned from
the ono man to the other.
"I haven't felt inclined. I'll come
some day,".replied Ronald. "Miss
Hardwicke, your brother has caught
the biggpst trout wo'vo had yet—look
at him."
Laura looked, uud saw more than
the trout; theso two did not liko each
other. And why did Badger never
look people in tho face ? Sho did not
remember noticing it before, but how
his eyes turned from Bennett's frank
gaze! She would see how tho land lay;
and she talked on to Ronald, who answered her with more alacrity than
usual, for tho sight of Badger always
roused him to keener attention and
speech.
After a while Hardwicko put up his
rod, and prepared to accompany tho
visitor back to lunch. "You had better como too, Bennett," said he; "it's
too sunny now to go on."
"No thanks—not to-day," said Ronald. "I've got u sandwich with me,
and I'll seo if I can't beat that take of
yours yot."
"Como in to tea, thon, Mr. Bennett," aaid Laura, inviting liim for the
first timo,
"Thanks—you aro vory kind; but I
shall bo near home by that time, and
my mother will complain if I leave hor
«!««« nil A«s, >- -..nlin.l P/maM
nll soo
alone all day," replied Ronald.
"Well, good-bye, thon
you again soon,"
"Good-bye," ho replied, lifting his
cap; and giving Badger a farewell nod,
he turned back to his fishing.
"Bennett iB quite an acquisition,"
remarked Hardwicke; "he's a capital
fisherman. Would you care te join
us?"
"No, thanks. I never had patience
for it; but I saw your lawn-tennis
ground as I came 'up the avenue—if
Miss Hardwicke would have a game, I
should be delighted."
"Certainly; we can go out after
luncheon," replied Laura.
"I have beeu out of ladies' socioty
so long that I find it doubly charming,
though at any time I prefer it to standing with a rod in my hand by a river;
I nm not made for solitude," said Captain Badger to Laura, as ho tightened
the cords of tho tennis-net—and she
wondered whether Ronald's face had
ever for any ono, worn that sort of
look!
"Is there any talk of Bennett marrying, do you know f" said tho captain
in a pause, after a well-contested gamo
—ho always allowed a lady to fancy
that ho was doing his best ugainst
her."
•'Not that I ever heard."
"Ah. I thought—I knew, iu fact—-
that ho meant to marry, and marry
money. It's necessary for hiin, poor
fellow, in his peculiar position. It was
lucky lio oscnped a match that he nearly made in tho ranks."
Oh, was ho engaged, then?"
I can't say exactly, you know. Of
■so I could only hear of it through
hfo applying for leave to marry. Tho
girl was very pretty, but it would have
been fatal to him now, aud I Buppose
he threw her over. As it is, he may
do well enough."
"No doubt. Shall wo try again ? I
must rovensto myself."
"And I shall submit willingly to be
yenr victim You are a beautiful
player."
Laura did not reply, but sho played
her best. She had a sudden desire to
defeat her opponent that did uot arise
entirely from interest in the game.
Sho did win, by one point, and was
very gracious to hiin as thoy went in
to tea—so gracious tlmt the shrewd
Captain Badger guessed thero must be
something behind. Wbb it possiblo
that ho had arrived only just in time ?
She did not liko that bit of information
about Bennett—of that he was pretty
sure; but ho must fuel his way carefully.
He was quite right—Laura did not
like it. She was gradually becoming
interested, almost against her will, in
her brother's favorite, and now sho
was disappointed, Sho did not wish
to bo friends with him if ho had ever
intended to marry a soldier's daughter,
Sho had fancied him a man of finer
tasto, who had a curiously chivalrous
feeling toward women. Perhaps what
sho had taken for chivalry was a form
of disappointed love—inditterenco instead of deference. How ridiculous
sho had boon, aud how fortunate Captain Badger had told her the truth!
Thon, again, that other idea. If he
meant to marry money, ho was just as
sordid as other mon, though ovidently
it was not hor money ho wanted.
Whoso could it be ? Could it ba that
she had guessed rightly—that the other
day, when She had mentioned Mrs.
Lcslio, his face had betrayed a hidden
feeling? If so, he was taking a mean
advantage of Sir Duncan's kindness;
but if sho were to speak of him to Misa
Forbes—if she wero to hint that ho
was money-hunting—she was suro his
chances, oven if ho were ever to havo
any, would bo over in thut quarter
Decidedly sho felt put out, and it waa
Captain Badger's doing.
While people speculated about her
with that indifference to hor recent
bereavement which springs from no
unkindness, but from a natural know*
ledge of the buoyancy of youth, Muriel
moved among them in utter unconsciousness of their thoughts. That any
one Bhould havo dreamed, much less
have spoken, of her marrying again,
would have seemed to her—had she
known of it—an unpardonable insult.
Not that she said to hcrsolf that sho
never would marry again—she had simply never contemplated such a possibility as that sho should be loved; aud
in her thoughts of tho future she pictured hcrsolf growing accustomed to a
lonely life, and bearing it patiently,
while the people about hor oBtato
should learn to lean on her for counsel, and should profit by her advice
and assistance. She had completely
forgotten that noto of Ronald's which
sho and her father had read and answered together just beforo her mar-,
riagn, and in which she had found nn
unintentional admission of his affection—had forgotten it as we do forget
incidents which slip away into some
hidden corner of our memories, only to
leap out and confront us at some unexpected moment.
At first, when she saw Ronald, sho
had not been able entirely to banish
the painful associations suggested by
the sight of ono who had como homo
out of the war that had cost her husband his life. But one day she fancied
that he had detected her thought, and
had avoided her iu consequence; and
regretting that Bhe should have seemed
unkind to him', she endeavored to banish the idea that had hurt him, and
was soon able to welcome him without
reserve.
He did not trespass on the hospitality offored him; Sir Duncan complained once or twice that his visits
wero as rare as though ho wero a slight
acquaintance, but did net press the
matter, renumbering better than his
daughter the tenor of that old note,
aud guessing that Ronald did not wish
to run into too groat temptation. At
the same time, he himself longed for
his .society; the fresh, vigorous spirit
warmed and cheered liis own grayov
days, especially now when Muriel's
bereavemot closed tho doors of Inverallan to guests; and at last ho suggested to Ronald that if ho wanted books
and aud a smoke, and was uot inclined
for ladies' socioty, he might como to
the library and smoking-room and see
him, without making a formal call. -
Ronald speedily took advantage of
this proposal, and would ofton drop in
to discuss the last volume he had taken
out, or tell Sir Duncan of his day's
sport, without his presenco being
known to oitlicr Miss Forbes or Mrs,
Leslie. Tho latter found him thoro
once or twico when sho came to her
father for advice, or passed through to
her own writing-room in the turret,
but she only spoko a word or two, ami
proceeded to her occupations, accepting
tho tacit understanding that he camo
to see Sir Duncan.
It was during ono of these visits that
Miss Hardwicke, in compliance with
his repeated request, -ook Captain
Badger to call at Inverallan. Sho did
not do so nltogothor willingly; for with
a Bort of liking for tho captain she
mingled a vague distrust of his taste
and manners, whieh mado her hesitate to take him to a house where she
always felt herself more or less, as she
said, on her good behavior.
Captain Badger knew how to bo
polito as well as amusing, in a superficial way, and was able to ingratiate
himself to the hoidenish sido of her
character; but she possessed a good
deal of nfitivo shrowdnoss, and was
not blind to some of his deficiencies,
though neither ho nor she would hnve
understood that his very presenco was
an oflbuce to the family at Inverallan.
