Vrabl A.Klul Ilamid's Tiio1,
Tlio thoovy that Arabi Puslia wns
tho inero tool uf the Sultan in raising the standard of revolt in Nile
land, appears to be readily gaining
ground in well-informed circles. Regarded in the light of this hypothesis, somo things inexplicable before
become quite plain. Up to a cer-
taiu point the Turkish press, which
dares not do otherwise than enunciate the sentiment of the Court,
represented Arabi us a gteat patriot
and a hero. He held iu check tho
Christian power, and Islam wns
proud of him. But tho moment
victory peches on the Christian bun-
tier tho Turkish press discovers in
liim (Arabi) an infamous rebel and
clamors loudly for hisb'ood. But not
only did tho press givo voico to the
sentiment of the Court. Oflicoi-s and
soldiers about tho Paluco .spoke u
common language of sympathy with
the rebel leader. Vv'eU-infoi'ined
correspondents ut the Turkish capital are all agreed ou that point that
tho wholo sympathy of the Court
was on thu side of Arabi up till it
became clear liis cause was lost; nud
from that moment it wns just an
pronounced against him. Soi-clesftht
commissioners Avere sent, ostensibly
to brmg Arabi to suBjcoLibn; but
instead of boing degraded ns n rebel,
lie was advanced to tho highest military, functions and promoted to tho
rank of Grand 03)001' of the Medji-
die in the presence of tho people, as
if to demonstrate how thoroughly he
was in communion of purpose with
the Calif. Then came the line when
material, as well as moral aid was
to be extended. Turkish I roups
must by sent, professed iy to subdue,
but in realitv lo assist liim. Delay
must be had. And here we shall
ullow a well-informed correspondent
to speak:
Just nt this point Providence appeared and came tu the aid of Abdul
Humid, holding an American journalist bythe hand. "Mr. James-Gordon
Bennett arrivod in tho harbor nf Qyn-
atantinuplo in his yacht. Wallace presented him to the iSnii.au, who invited
him to dine with him. Under his
napkin BeunoU found his insignia of
the order of Osmanli.
At the desiTt Abdul Humid unbosomed himself, "You can ruudor ine
a very great service,'' said he to Mr.
Bennett, -who, greatly surprised, immediately replied: "Speak, your Ma-
■jenly; I shall be delighted.    What ciui
i do r
"Go and gel Arabi and bring'tun) to
too.'
"Is that all ? Thero is nothing more
simple. Count upon me. In fivo days
Arabi and I will be here;" and, aa he
was about to leave, Abdul .Hamid snid
to him: "One moment'; I wish to aid
you in this (natter. X think that a
;word from mo to Arabi will not be
[without ita influence. Here it ia and
fl rely upon your honor to give it into
[liis own hands."
Mr. Bennett at once departed, 11b
[carried with him tho reverse of wlmt
he believed ho wns taking. What thu
Sultan wrote was designed precisely tu
|confirm Arabi in his resistance.
Now, the question is, Did tho English obtain knowledge of the o::isteuce
of tills letter and of its contents') Certain it is that the vory next day Lord
Dufferin insisted  upon tho  Sultan's
[proclaiming Arubi a rebel before send-
hng Turkish troops to Egypt. Naturnl-
[ly tbe Sultan refused.   How could he
Tcompromiso himself to such a degree iu
Jthe eyes of all Islam ? Everybody iu
■Turkey knew of the understanding be-
ftween Arabi aud the Sultan.
"Sign!" said Dufferin.
"Certainly I'll sign, but after tho
[transportation of my troops.  Then we
■wilt seo the effect produced."
1   "No, immediately," aaid tho Englishman.    "Otherwise you know that
|we have quite a number of methods to
render you obliging— the D. affair, tho
Suari matter, and tho Constitution !"
It  didn't  noed  so  much.   Abdul
Elamid prostrated himsolf and nigtied.
That signature wns worth 50,000 mon
ho the English.  Immediately the proclamation posted by them among the
Arabian contingent produced the effect'
bf a stone thrown into a frog-pond,
Arabi, wild at such duplicity and infamy, pitched everything to the devil.
Of his partisans, one portion, discoursed, abandoned him, and the othor,
pnroged at being duped by hiin, turned
•ainat him.   The populace, ignorant
: the reality, saw only the brutal fact
-Arabi had spoken in the name of
lhe Sultan, and the Sultan disavowed
Iiml
, It will be quite clear now why
liord Duifovin insisted upon tiie
Iroohi mitt ion, uiununivered for delay
i sending Turkish troops, and stipu-
Lted that, if. sent, thoy must land
there they would be harmless, It
lill be clear, too, thut Lord Duflerin
lid more at Constantinople than
British arms did in Egypt.

s'orm'fets.
A womnn'H tent'3 are liko the April rain
Down falling on the hard and Btony
ground;
Now the warm sun casta wealth of
light around,
Then rainy clouds o'ersprend tho sky
again,
And moisture gently greets the thirsty
plain.
In   the  same change cloth woman's
mind abound;
Now smiles she like tho sun, and now
aro found
Teara to express lior anger or hep pain.
And like tho rain which in the barren
field
Rears up the seed to blossom to tho
flower,
Her tenia arc weapons she doth dextrous
wield,
To keop o'er heart of man the sway of
power;
And in that head;, all barren else with
pride,
Hopes spring, and love and these like
flowi's abide.
to ,
Thy picture is before mo nnd I seo
Thou wearest fuchsias, flowers of fairest hue.
But yet what need is there of flowers to
thee,
Who art thyself the fairest flower to
view.
Couldst   thou   the flowei-s with thy
grace ombre,
That flower thou honoredst thus a queen
would be,
And one might hold it then a t-.h most
true,
That in ita cap was shrined some deity.
Thou wearest gems, which useless (lash
aiul gleam,
For not the diamond from Golcondn'a
mine
Could send f'Xim inmost depth so bright
i\ beam
As from thy living eyes doth mirthiul
shine.
Oh could we though a picture i each
the mind,
What glorious beauties might be seen
eualuined.

TO JO.
Fair   Jo,   loveliest when   tho verdant
Spri-ig
'Scapes from cold Winter's thrall with
smiling powers,
O, let tho fields to thee their tribute
bring,
Sweet with tho fragrance of a my tied
flowers.
Through all the woodland's freshly budding bowers
Harmonious songsters swell their thco&ts
to sine*;,
Whilmg   with   melody  the  passing
hours;
CfttoMed from treo to tree their love notes
ling.
Down through   the verdant isles pass
thou alone,
From every ruby bud shoots emerald
sprays,
Near thee the hoc hums out a busy tone,
About thy form the sunbeam ceaseless
plays.
Listen — afar n soft voice breathes a-
tween,
Delighted nature hailing thee her queen.

burden. Tho cure was completed by
three buttle;' of Burdock Blood Hitters,

Indian Potlatches.
* It appears that an Order inhibiting Indian potlatoh feasts has been
issued by the Department at Ottawa.
According to that ukase these pagan
practices are estopped after six
months from its issue. We have
*flot the means of knowing'tllb date
of the document, nor do we know
upon whose advice this questionable
step has 'been taken. That these
.gatherings and high-jinks tend to
much evil we ara free lo admit.
. They take thousands of Indians
away from home and -noh. They
Involve considerable expense and
wastefulness. They are generally
'attended with debauchery and lead
'to <denoniliiatioa They constitute
a chain which binds the aboriginies
to paganism. They prove a formidable stumbling-bloek in the way of
tbe Christian Missionary. In a
-word, their tendency is evil and only
evil, and it is unquestionably in the
best interests of both red and white
that these practices should disappear
as soon as possible. But we are disposed to question the wisdom of attempting arbitrary or summary
abolition by means of a Departmental Order, or, indeed, by any other
means. For the Government to take
•every available opportunity te dis
countenance und discourage the custom would be highly proper and
would doubtless exert a potent influence in that direction; nnd we
regretted at the time that, in his
admirable -address to the assembled
tribes on tbe occasion of his visit
<here, the Marquis of Lome did not
speak more strongly on the point.
Be or the Queen's daughter could
have done much towards frowning
down these practices, and they would
doubtless have felt it to be their
duty to do se, had they been proper
Jy advised. But the work must to
-a great exent be left to the more
gradual influences or moral suasion
—Christianizing and civilizing influences. The moment an attempt
is made to abolish by arbitrary interdiction an old custom around
-which duster pagan superstitions
.and historic memories, that moment
yon arouse the savage hostility. Indeed experience has already proved
the unwisdom of the attempt arbitrarily and suddenly to abolish this
-custom by a Departmental Order.
Last week a grand council of Chiefs
representing Island, seaboard and
Lower Fraser tribes wus held at
Nanaimo for the express purpose of
considering the question, and we
cannot do better than give the result,
41 reported in .the Free Press of
Wednesday last:
"Each chief spake at some length,
-detailing the views of his tribe, which
was in every instance adverse to discontinuing the potlstch feasts.
It was unanimously decided not to
.give up the feasts, for it was a long-
established custom and they had very
■strong feelings in regard to the obsetv-
ance of these feasts. The chiefs argued that their people were enjoying
themselves in their own peculiar way,
without doing any injury to the Government or white people, and they
could not see by what right the Government interfered. If the Government attempted to stop the feasts by
force, it will cause trouble, but if the
Government wish the Indians to stop
feasting they should provide schools
to teach the young Indians different
views.
The chiefs suggested that the Government, instead of trying to stop the
harmless feasts should take steps te
completely stop the liquor traffic
among the Indiana, for the liquor does
a great deal more harm among the
Indian tribes than tho feasts ever did.
The chiefs claim that the feature of
the potlatch which gives food and
olothes to the old and infirm Indians
Is commendable and very pointedly
ask if tbe Government are willing to
provide necessaries for the old and inarm Indians.
It will be seen from the above
that it would be unwise, if not dangerous, te attempt forcible abolition
of the custom. The points anent
education and the liqnor traffic are
exceedingly well taken, and we
earnestly recommend the authorities
at Ottawa to read, mark, learn and
inwardly digest the salutary lessons
therein conveyed.
Gratifying- Result1*.
Some of the settlers in the flooded
districts on tbe Lower Fraser sowed
eats on the land after the waters
had assuaged—well on in July it
must have been—and it ia indeed
gratifying to learn that, in some in-
etanoes at least, the orope to sowed
matured and yielded a bountiful
harvest of good, plump grain. This
fact possesses an importance beyond
the immediate pecuniary result. It
demonstrates the important fact that
these lands and this glorious climate
are capable of producing good cereal
crops in the samesenson tliatthcacrcs
have been flooded. And this result
acquires cumulative importune, in
view of the fact that tbeVatel' stood
deeper and longer than usual upon
these lands this yoar. But, evon if
crops sown nfter the flood (lid not
attain maturity, but were cut green
ns fodder for cattle during winter,
the result wonld in some measure
make up for loss. The practical lesson would seem to bo this: Let tlio
settlers in tliose districts liable to be
partially flooded occasionally cither
place their dwellings and ont-build-
i'ngs, etc., on a high piece of land, or
surround them by a dyke, and let
them adopt a kind of fencing calu-
lated to resist the influence of tho
floods. The barbed wire fence has
been adopted with very satisfactory
results by Mr. Chester Chadsey.
That done; let them arrange their
fields and crops with a special view
to the contingency of a flood, leaving
the lands most liable to overflow for
such crops as would be most likely
to do well after the flood. These
few crude thoughts are offered with
the hope that they may lead to careful reflection nnd eventuate in practical effort to overcome as far as
possible the disastrous effects of occasional overflow. We would not
wish by auy means to be understood
as suggesting any necessarily partial
•and imperfect remedy ns a substitute
for the more thorough one of carrying out a system of dyking or drainage on a large scaled It is merely presented as a possible means of amelioration meanwhile, ns it may be
some years before any extensive system of dyking can bo brought into
play, and it occurs to us that by encouraging and promoting tliose partial and temporary remedies, the tide
of despair which has been rolling in
on some parts of tliese settlements
would be checked, nnd the discouraged and almost ruined farmers
would bo stimulated to fresh effort
at a time when there is a demand
and a good cash market for every
ounce of food for man and beast that
all these fertile acres aro capable of
producing.
Finis.
At last the end of the Esquimalt
election trial has come. The public
are. more concerned to see the end of
the Beaven Government. The practical result of the weary contest can
surprise no one. It must have been
clear to every unprejudiced mind
ever since the evidence was in that
Hett must go. But there are some
things associated with tho manner
of his "taking off" that may not
have been anticipated. Had the decision by which Hett is unseated and
Pooley is seated been the sole and
unsupported decision of Mr. Justice
Gray, it is highly probable that the
defeated party would have raised an
outcry about a partizan Judgo. The
circumstance of objection having
been taken on that ground in the
very outset would havo been made
to de duty, and the organs would
have howled about tho Attorney-
General having been tried and sacrificed by a hostile Judge—a political enemy, and all that sort of thing.
But fortunately their mouths are
effectually closed on that score. Mr.
Justice Gray's decision has been
affirmed by a full Bench, including
Mr. Justice McCreight, the very
Judge before whom the respondent
applied to have the case tried, and,
ob, refinement of cruelty, affirmed
by Mr. Justice Walkem! Well, Mr.
Hett has been unseated and Mr.
Pooley is member for Esquimalt,
thus taking one from tho Govornment minority and adding one to
the Opposition majority. More serious still, Mr. Beaven loses his Attorney-General and is left without
the wherewithal to make another.
Under these circumstances, surely
he will resign. There is a rumor to
the effect that Helgesen will resign
and let Hett tako his seat, as they
say the dock influence can be relied
upon to olect him. But, in so far
as count of noses is concerned that
would place the Govornment in no
better position. If by that means
they could hope to have a majority
in the new House it would be different. But it would only be liko
Pat's expedient to lengthen his
blanket—cutting a piece off the bottom and putting it on the top. And,
besides, every fresh effort to retain
power now can only have the effect
of sinking them lowor in public estimation..

Joint Slock Steamboat Com-
pa*).
The following appeared in yesterday's Colonist:—
Preliminary steps were taken yesterday for thu formation in this city of
a joint-stock Bteamboat company with
a cash capital of foOO.OOO. Tho company propose to acquire tho boats of
tho Hudson Buy Co. and the Pioneer
Lino and to construct two magnificent
iron propellers with a speed of 18 knots
an hour fur the trade between Victoria
and Port Moody and Now Westminstor and for the Island and Mainland
const trade. The company proposo,
also, to construct light-draught steamboats for tho river and gulf traffic of
high apeod and elegant appointments.
Musical and Literary,
On Monday next the musical and
literary entertainment fur tho benefit
of tho Mechanics' Institute takes placo,
and it is no exaggeration to say that
upon this occasion will be presented
tho most attractive programme evor
offered in this community. Not only
has all tho local talent, some of it new,
been secured, but there will appear on
the boards on Monday evening a gentleman all tho way from Okanagon,
possessing a voice of rare excellence,
while, Mr. H. Unxbury, of London,
the champion whistle-pipe player of
the Pacific, will astonish thu audience
with ono of his really wonderful performances. Whilo thus putting forth
a supremq effort to afford the public a
rich treat, tho Managers of tho Institute desire to say that, inasmuch as it
is not intoudod tomakoanothorsimihir
appeal this season, they carnostly trust
that tho response will bo suoh on Monday night as to insure to that most
deserving public institution a .substantial benefit.
Lost and Found.
About fourteen years ago Abram
Yctirxa, a youth not quite out of his
teens, arrived in this country from the
Provinco of Now Brunswick. A blacksmith by trade, he established himself
ut Cache Creek, where ho continued
until a couplo of years ago, when he
moved to Spenco's Bridge. Several
weeks ago, ho became troubled and
moody, and finally disappeared mysteriously about Nicomin. ,,His horse,
upon which he had ridden out, was
found saddled and bridled, grazing by
the way-side, and there arose a suspicion of foul-play or suicide. It was
known that he had some two thouaand
dollars in money about his person at
tho timo. Ltist weak liis body was
found in tho Thompson river, a littlo
below Nicomin, the money gono and a
significant gush in tho forehead, but,
so far as we havo heard, no clue has
beou obtained as to tho circumstances
attending the "taking off."
. *ve» —
Maili&nfl Females.
A daily mail service between Victoria and Puget Sound and a "ladies'
wicket'' at tho Victoria post-oflice aro
amongst the desiderata advocated by
the Colonist. We should certainly not
object to the first; but unless increased
mail facilities fer the Mainland wero
simultaneously conceded there would
bo a manifest inequality if not unfairness about it. Already Victoria is
vory much better off than tho Mainland or, indeed, the other Island communities, in respect to mail accommo
datum. Stil! wo should rejoice to soo
daily communication between Victoria
and Puget Sound, but with such an
advance step the Mainland and Nanaimo would certainly havo a right to insist upon greatly moralised accommodation. t In bo far as tho "ladies'
wicket" is concerned, that is a small
matter, and certainly ought to bo conceded at once. Wo have often wondered at its absuueo. For that matter
there ought to havo been a second
entrance. To construct a post-oRlce
for Victoria itt this day with only n
single entrance for th*} public was
stupid. But then it was only in keeping with other Federal buildings in
tho Pacific Province—notably the ono
iu course of erection here.
Tlie Esquimau lilccuoii.
(Hefi.ii) Hun. Mr, .lustIce Ciiiy.)
Tho Court met nt Victoria on Wednesday, when lais Honor delivered
judgment. Thu judgment occupies
nearly a pnge of tho Colonist,
Ho ordered tho votes of Dingle,
Launder, Whitstone and Simple
to bo struck off, and Btnted that
upon a scrutiny it was found that Dingle voted for Pooley, aud tho other
threo for Hett, ami that would make
tho count 71 for Hett and 72 for
Pooley.
Thu Judge thon asked Mr. Pollard,
the counsel for respondent, why he
(the Judgo) should not mako a report
to the Speaker of tho Houso, in accordance with the above
Mr. Pollard raised two legal points
which tho Judge said would be dault
with by a full Court on Thursday. *
Tho full Court mot ou Thursday,
..'hen the points raised by counsel for
respondent having beon disposed of
and the Court unanimously Concurring
in the decision, Mr. Justice Gray announced that ho would now givo effect
to tho decision by notifying the Clerk
of tho Legislature that Mr. Pooley had
boon declared duly elected for Esquimalt.
Koute of (lie q. p. nitilway,
Under a somewhat Bousutioual heading, the Colonist of Wednesday published tho following rumor. It js not
improbable that tlio concluding son-
tenco originated in tho brain of our
esteemed contemporary:—
"It is rumored that the object of the
trip of Hon. Mr. Trutch and Mr, Marcus Smith to the Nicola country is to
examine mid detormino as to the feasibility of changing tho lino of railway
from tho Kamloops nnd Shuswnp sections and carrying it through Nicola
Valley and Grand Prairie, up Salmon
rivor, crossing Shuswnp lako at Schick-
mouso Narrows, thence through Eagle
Pass to Ille-oillo-wont river, and up
that stream to Kicking Horso Fans.
It is claimed that this diversion will
effect a saving of $2,000,000 in the
construction of tho railway to tho foot
of tho Hooky Mountains. This saving
will onnblo tho govornment to apply
thu surplus money to tbo constructibn
of tho island railway nud tho establishment of Esquimalt as thu terminus of
the Canadian Pacilla railway."
Home Rule Tor Ireland.
At tho Lord Mayor's banquet on the
9th inst. Mr. Gladstone, replying to
the toast "Hor Majesty's Ministers,"
said:—"The Government had great
difficulty to contend with in Ireland,
but it reliod moro confidently on the
measures of justice they had introduced, than upon any stringencies
placed upon thein by Parliament. I
am glad to any thnt during the past
year many difficulties disappeared.
Commerce arid trade aro improving,
and crime is decreasing to a very great
extent. I look forward torceent Irish
legislation t\s tho firm arid enduring
foundation of glutei* harmonies between the different orders of society,
and social order is not now endangered. Some -rho havo beon betrayed
and seduced in the doctrines of illegality have arrived at the conviction that
they havu not to regard England other
than a friendly, sisterly nation. They
have come to believe that in tho observance in every just and legitimate
endeavor to amend the law, was to bu
found the best specific for whatever
will bo yet. required to supply the
wants of Ireland." As was to have
been expected, theso ruinnrks excited
much interest and are generally regarded as pointing to tho concession of
"homo rulo" to Ireland. The Times
says "Gladstone's incidental remarks
last night will bo interpreted in Ire-
laud to menu home rulo; that the
country should know what is intended
by this unexpected statement, aud that
it is not to bo supposed tho premier otitis supporters havo any notion of proposing tho establish moot of independent legislation for Ireland." Tho Free-
man's Journal says J "Gladstone never
before yesterday declared so distinctly
and clearly his opinion of (ho necessity
of bonis rule,' or tho extent to which
it should bo conceded, It is impossible to exaggerate the significance uf
his utterance. Gladstone would not
dare use the words he did unless there
was somo real meaning behind them.
The proposition that England will
recognize home rule is distinctly admitted, and brought mora clearly iu
tho domain of practical politics by
Gladstone in hisspeuch."

The Slanderer caught Again,
It is with some reluctance* that wo
refer again to tho Guardians latest at
tempt tb throw mud at the editor of
this journal. Tbe communication and
document which follow, however, aro
worthy the careful attention of overy
resident in this provinco. They show
vory plaiuiy what kind of principles
guide the conduct of certain journalists, who first sold themselves to a corrupt Government, nnd then fifpened
thoir columns to every kind of diabolical Hchoiuo to blacken their opponents
in the eyes of the public. In this
ccmntry a man who goes into public
lifo must expect to have his acts and
bin character criticised without niorcy,
And no one can fairly object, to searching criticism if it bu but honest and in
the public interest. Wo do not know
that oven a man's private lifo should
altogether escape when ho seeks a position of trust. If a man's private life
bo bad, his qualification for filling any
responsible public position may fairly
be questioned. 13ut the Guardian has
not contented itself with criticising
cither the public or private character
of the editor of this paper.. On several
occasions within tho pa.il. few mont.hu
ho has published statements about Mi*.
Robson an false ns anything could possibly bo conceived, nud hns declared
with multiplied adjectives that they
wero absolutely true and capable of
proof! His Intest attempt at this sort
of warfare most of our readers already
understand. He published two letters
purporting to ho a statement of what
Mr. Robson said at a recent meeting
in tho. Methodist Church in this city.
Mi*. Robson pointedly, publicly, nud
emphatically denied tlmt hohacVoVer
said anything of the kind. But tho
Guardian nud its correspondent) in
last- Wednesday's issue, reiterated tho
cowardly Blander. And that is not all.
Tlie G-kanlikh odors ita columns to
any worthless slanderer whoso reputation for truth is so bad that be dare
not affix his name tu his libellous pro-
diwfbmn; hut when two respectable
citizens ask room in which tp deny and
expose tbo miserable slanders, the
editor of tlio Guardian rofnses to publish thoir statement unless thoy pay
him ten dollars! Could anything moro
coUtouiptiblo than this be. imagined'?
Tho Guamian basely glanders a man,
and wlieii proof is offered to combat
the slander the Guardian refuses to
take it unless ho gets n bribe! Let our
renders portiso the following document!!, nnd then ask themselves what
kind of people they must bo who patronize and support such a newspaper:—
Eijitor British Coj.UMnux.—Snt—
Tho enclosed document was this mora*
tag handed to Mr, J, K. Sitter, Kditoi
of the Mainland Guardian, with the request that bo would insert it iu his paper, which request bo peremptorily refused unless the fltiiu of ten dollars was
paid for its insertion as nu advertisement.
This wo declined to pay as tho articles
which it is intended to contradict had
beeu, admitted as ordinary correspond

Caution,
Wo bog to call tho attention of tho
trade and tho public to tho well-known
quality aud elegance of finish of our
Gold Casos, guaranteed by us to bo of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Gold, ns may be
i'tainped, aud afon to our jnodo of selling
the same, charging only for the Actual
Winum- of the gold used, nnd not for
the base metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, tilling of crown, etc. To illustrate
whicli a tig accompanies each one of our
Cold Casos, which plainly indicates not
only tho gross weight of tho case, but
also the >-.ot weight of the gold.
hi explanation of tho above wc desire
to say that tho old plan of charging for
tho gross weight of the cassi as if it wore
nil gold, worked well enough ns long its
the manufacturers wore content with the
amount of brnss and stcol actually ro
quired in its construction; but when tho
business was degraded into a contest as
to who should got the most bnso metal
into tho least quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the time came when,
in tho interest of dealers iu American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
plan of selling, showing tho buyer exactly hpW much C01.11 each case contained.
To ft void iinpiwilion, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
bears our trade mark on both case and
movement. Gold eases nro stamped "A.
W. Co,;"nnd guarantee certificates accompany thein. Silver cases nre stamped
"A. M. Watch Co., Wnltliam, Mass.,
sterling silver,'' nnd are accompanied by
guarantee QOl'tlflcates, signed It. R, Bob*
hiiis. treasurer, The namo "Waltham''
is plainly ciigrnVcd upon nil movoiii'.iits,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks, This caution ia rendered necessary by reason of tho fact that our enscs
are frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of othor makers and rice versa,
tints affecting injiirioiislv the performance of ttfc wntchey, nnd vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our oomploto watches wholly made
by us. It is neeessnry also, because it is
no notorious as to .bu a nubHo scandal
thnt thoro fo great fraud in tho metal
quality of both gold and silver eases as
now generally sold. Wo have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold and silver discs offered in the market nro debased from 10 to U0 pel* cent.
from tho quality they assume to bo,
This is ft fraud upon tiio purchaser, nnd
accounts for the low prico rit whicli such
cased wntchos have been sold.— Amkui-

CHAPTER VH.
UNDBR   THE   SPBL'L-,
(Continued.)
•They had all spoken of the ball,
but no one had asked him if he would
be thore; he was of another world.
How he would have liked to go, to
face hor in a, ball room, aud see if she
would have the courage to dance with
him! Yet why ahould he wish bo to
try her? His evening clothes wore
growing too tight for him, and he
could uot got more nt present; and he
was a bad dancer—he knew that. Besides, what business could he have at
a ball 1 Such places were uot for men
of his cloth, he thought bitterly, and
waa gloomy uud silent all the ovening.
CHAPTER Vm,
IIE YON 1)  HIS   (IRASJ.
On the day of the courtty ball Ronald begged his mothor to leave the
house-door unlocked, as lie waj going
out, and would not be home till late.
"Where are you going ?" she asked,
quickly.
"I am going to Stirling."
"To Stirling! Preserve us, laddie!
you're not so mad as to dream of going
to yon ball ? Your father—"
"Would never forgive me. Mother,
I am not so dull of wit us yeu sometimes seem to think me. Make your
mind easy. I am not going to appear
at the ball; more than that I cannot
■tell you. Now give me a kiss, and I
will go."
Such a "request was a very raie thing
with Ronald; and his mother, as she
watched him go down the road, comforted herself with the thought that he
could not be intending any mischief.
or ho would not have kissed hor. "He
has played me many a prank, but he
never deceived me yet, she said to
'herself—which was true, though he
had been very near deceit in his reply
te her a few minutes ago. It was true
also that he had no definite plan when
he started; ho did uot wish to be observed and recognized, if ho could
help it; but he was determined at any
cost, to see Muriel among tho possible
aspirants respecting whom Miss Alicia
'professed herself bo anxious.
A knot of boys at the door of the
building whore the ball was to lake
place attracted his attention, and, ns
he looked, ons or two idlers joined the
■group. They were going to stand on
the flight of stops aud watch the arrivals—police supervision being a thing
unknown. Here was a chance for
Ronald; his quick eye noted that any
one on the uppermost step would be
invisible to those coming up, on whose
faces the strong lamp-light from the
entrance -hall must strike. He secured
the place in a moment, and ensconcing
-himself somewhat behind a pillar, prepared to wait till the Inverallan party
should arrive.
A considerable time elapsed, during
which ladies and gentlemen came, at
first hy twos and threes, then in n
more continuous stream. Ronald listened to the comments of his neighbors
ou the stops, and gazed without much
interest, though, perhaps, the sight of
the pretty faces and tho glimpses of
rich colors and scented bouquets were
not without their effect. At last, seen
dimly behind their divided breath,
tho well-known gray horses came rapidly round the corner, and three carriages drew up. Miss Alicia got out
of the first, and passed up with her
companions. From the second two
eentlenien alighted, Sir Duncan and
•another, and handed out Muriel, who
came up the steps on her father's arm.
Ronald folt, rather than saw, that she
was in shining white, aud that she
looked more radiant than ever.
As she passed out of his sight his
eye fell on the gentleman who was following her, and he* recognized Capt.
Leslie, the skater with whom she
seemed to be on such pleasant terms.
Darting down to the street, he turned
to the back entrance of tho building,
and obtained speech of one of the purveyors, who not unfrequontly came in
summer to the kirk at Tillybodle
"Was there any place where he could
possibly see the dancing?" "Oh yes;
there was a bit of a gallery, where two
or three of tho ladies'-maids and their
friends were standing; he could get in
there, no doubt. Oh, of course, he
quito understood—no need to say anything about it at Tillybodle;" and with
a wink and a laugh, the man showed
Ronald the little stair by which he
could reach the gallery.
Keeping in the back-ground, he
could still see the upper end of the
ball-room, and in the very centre stood
the Inverallan party. Sir Duncan was
in the act of introducing u gentleman
with a star on his coat; and, almost
before Muriel hud acknowledged his
bow, a lady whose dress was blazing
with diamonds came up, bringing anothor partner. A little further along
the room Captain Leslie was being led
up by an elderly dame to her two
daughters, and Ronald fancied he
could detect au impatient glance to tho
left as he bowed and made an entry
rapidly on his card. The instant he
was free he had glided round behind
Muriel; and cortainly thore was a
brighter pleasure in her oyes as he
spoko to her.
This was evidently a pre-engaged
dance, for there was no consulting of
cards as ho gave hor his arm and moved with hor out from tho crush. For
a few minutes they wero immediately
opposite tho gallery, and in full view,
"There's the beauty of the night-
Mite Forbes of Inverallan," said ono
of the ladies' maids.
"Who is the gentleman?" asked another.
"Captain Leslie—Sir Francis Leslie
of Ardenhaugh's oldest son. She's only
just out. but they do say they will be
a match."
"And a handsome eouple they'd
be," was the reply.
Ronald grew hot and oold as he listened. His vague impression, then,
had not been wilheut foundation, A
match! He was looking already at the
man who would win her. Good heavens, how beautiful ahe was! her small
head waa so daintily set «n her fair
shoulders, her pretty firiiih fiffura was
ao well- displayed by her white dress!
The exquisite bouquet sbo carried was
the only color about her savo the rose
on her cheek; she woro no ornament
but a string or two of pearls, and a
pair of quaint old bracelets with pearl
clasps. Indeed, her dross was tho
simplest in the room; and, as Ronald
observed the fact, h« rovolled in tin
beauty and lino taste that made her,
as she stood there, the queen of tho
bull.
■But now the music began softly, her
companion bent and spoke to her, and
she smiled brightly as she listened
his arm was round her, her hand in
his. Ronald could have groaned aloud
as he looked; and, indeed, ho had unthinkingly prepared a torture for himself, of which, till ho had felt it, he
hud had no conception.
He had imagined himself strong in
tho certainty that his love was futilo
—had fancied lhat ho would liko to
sec the girl ho worshipped among her
frionds, winning admiration wherever
sho moved; and now be found himself
a sudden prey to tbe fiercest, maddest
jealously, unable to torn* himself away,
and yet feeding his passion and his
despair as he watched her floating
round tho room. Evidently she nnd
her partner were admirably paired for
a ball-room, for their easy, rythmical
motion wus the perfection of dancing,
and it wus no wonder lhat she appeared to be enjoying herself thoroughly.
Again, aud yet again, they danced;
and still Ronald watched, though his
eyes ached and his head was dizzy with
the heat and the glare. Onco there
was a general move to supper, and bo
too stolo down in search, not of food,
but of something to quench his burning thirst.
Sir Duncan never liked late hours,
and Muriel was among the first to say
good-night. Ronald saw hor shake
hands with some ef tho dowagers
whose jewels aud silks made the upper
end of tho room gorgeous; each and nil
of them had a kindly word for the
bright young beauty whoso debut had
been so complete a success, nnd the
leave-taking was prolonged.
He slipped away, aud placed himself
on a back-stair where a hnlf-glnss door
commanded the hall. Presently Miss
Alicia appeared, cloaked nnd hooded,
her face somewhat weary but well content, and next followed the oilier
ladies and Muriel. As she descended,
Captain Leslie came forward from Home
corner where he had been waiting nnd
offered her his arm, which she accepted with a now shyness on lior face.
How gently he took her bouquet from
her hand! Ronald fancied ho was asking for a flower; certainly there was a
faint movement of assent, and tlie
young man's features expressed quiet
delight.
"The Inverallan carriage!" shouted
a waiter, and the whole party hurried
on, Ronald boldly opening (he glass
door and following then.
"Who's that wild-looking fellow?"
said one gentleman to another; but no
one knew, and already he had mingled
with the small remnant of the crowd.
A boy uttered soma rude jest as the
ladies passed, and Ronald harshly bade
hiin be silent. A girl with bright eyes
spoke to him, and he turned from hor
and shuddered. With long strides he
set off in tho direction of Tillybodle,
and was soon out of the town uud be-
yend the reach of gas-lamps.
It was a dark night, and ho had forgotten to bring a small lantern. The
lights of the ball-room teemed to danco
before his eyes, and he could not see
the foot-path. Rut for tho cold' he
would have lain down under a hedge,
so dazed and weaned wns he in mind
and body; but a keen wind was blowing from the Grampians, and forced
him to proceed. Rlindly stumbling
into pools and over tho edge of the
path, he made but slow progress, nor |
cared for the wet or the lateness of the
hour, his whole senses being absorbed
in the recollection of whut he bad
seen.
The chill gray dawn was lifting the
clouds in the east ns he reached home;
und entering quietly, he threw himself, dressed as ho wns, ou the bed,
nnd slept a feverish, utirofresiling
sleep, till his mother herself camo to
call him. She began to reproach him
for his unseemly state, but iu tho
midst of her words she saw that he
wus not heeding her one whit, and
with a disturbed mind Bhe went awny.
When he rose it wns evident that he
had caught a Bavere, feverish cold,
and he yielded readily to hot- wish that
he should go lo bed again. It was a
good excuse, and procured for him tho
soliludo ho desired — a Bolitude in
which he might endeavor to attain to
a moro controlled state of mind.
After two days he came down again,
and taking a chair by the Are, looked
at his mother and began the subject
on which he wus most anxious for her
sympathy.
"Mother,'' Baid he, "you will bo
terribly disappointed, I suppose, if I
Bay I cannot be a minister V
"Disappointed is not tho word; you
would break your father's heart."
"I've not much fear of that, mothor.
He would never forgive me, I know;
but he is a man, and can bear things
it is of you that I am thinking,"
"Ronald, you don't moan that you
aro really going to givo up your work?
You're not in earnest ?"
"Thoroughly in earnest, mother,
and protty near determined."
"And pray what are you going to
do, then ? Supposing you Ily in tho
face of sense and Providence, how aro
you going to set your living?"
"That I don't know, but there must
bo work for me somewhere. At tho
worst, I could emigrate."
"Emigrate! When you have had
education and opportunities given you
at home, you'd fling thom all up to go
to some out-of-the-way colony? I always Baid no good would come of your
books of travels. Just you see what
your father says to it!"
"Thon you won't give me tho least
sympathy or help to persuade him—
not though I toll you I am not fit for
the ministry ?"
Mrs, Rennet looked nt hor son n
minute before she answered.
_ "It's my belief that if a woman Were
giving her life's blood for a man, drop
by drop, he'd still toll her that she hud
not done enough.'
