The education of the people fo
recognized hy all onli-jliteiiod statesmen as a mutter wliich cumiofc be
neglected without seriously endangering tho progress and stability of
the state.   In all progressive countries,   therefore,    the    educational
machinery is placed in the hands of
the Government,    Thero can he no
civilization without education, nud
there can be no natioral stabiiil.y
without civilization.    Every person
will admit, therefore, that it should
be one of the chief conrerim of any
Government to provide the machinery necessary for a common school
education. In a couiitiy like Btil'sll
Columbia, where the  population is
much scattered,, .settlors in new districts must naturally oqieet to endure hardships mul privations. They
cannot suppose that all the socit.il or
educational advantages which  surrounded  them  in  tho old land wiil
be found ready for them in the new.
And we bolievc tho o:;pce{.tiions entertained by a luvge nicjorify of our
settlors are not unreasonable.    Indeed in  many instances  they hnv~o
shown  themselves exceedingly  patient and long-aiUfering under treatment which, in other lands, might
have been considered suflicjiently aggravating to provoke rebellion,   One
of these inatarees liaa occurred in
connection with  the  Clover Valley
jacliool question.    Some lime ago the
people of Clover Valley took slops
towards the establishment of a juib-
io school in their settlement.    On
examination  it was found  that the
■ettlement contained  the r.eeossary
[numhet'of chihhon of school age re-
[quired by the statute, und more. Ap-
jplication was, therefore, made for a
-overnmcnt ganit.   1-ut the pro-
incial funds, as usual,* were low—
.he provincial funds are always low
hen an appropriation is ashed for
he Mainland—and tho Govornment
.ould  not be induced tu promise
ore   thau  §250.    An effort  was
jhen made bythe settlers themselves
,o raise, by private subsoriptibn, un
additional sum su-1'ci.ont to put the
liool on a safe financial footing,
■tit when the people applied for llio
paltry $250 promised  by the Gov-
i'l.uiftlit,' they could get nothing at
,111 Their applications were simply
realfid with silent contempt! Such
treatment from a Government which
Lever fails to collect the full amount
if taxes which the law will  permit
to exact ia certainly ontrugeoiis,
he people of  Clover Valley will,
'8 suppose, find themselves compiled to seo another year pass away
ithout a public school, and  their
lildren growing up in ignorance of
io commonest branches of education.    And they will see more—
icy will see thousands of dollars of
rovinciul revenue (to which  they
temselves havo coutribuled) squtin-
red hopelessly in a graving dock
Esquimalt, which can never bo of
iy benefit whatever to the Muiu-

The night was still, nud the glado
Gleamed bright   "heatEjtho utarlight
sky;
As I siit in a bower tlie pme trees made,
In a lonely bower in the forest shade,
I had loved in days goitc hy.
I cried in my wild despair*
''Will my love return ni> more ?"
Aud the winds but sighed, and no sound
was there,
Savo a murmur faint on the autumn air,
Liko the sua on a distant shore
Si»e had said—my fair-haired queen—
Wc should meet when tlie leaves were
sere:
With wistful eyes I gased through the
screen,
Where the tangled hair of the pino-treb
green •       '
Streamed in the moonlight clear.
And thore—where" the shadows lay,
On the wind-tossed, withering leaves,
She stood,—her pale faec lit with a ray,
With a light more sweet than tho lights
tliat play
Ou tlio bright dream fancy weaves.
And my soul witli glad surprise
Went forth to meet her there;
Yot the tender glow of her deep blue
eyes,
Aud her form, like a star iu tho morning
skies,
Died out in the thin, cool mr.
A cloud passed over the moon,
Its shadow fell on my heart;
I heard in the distance the night-bird's
croon,
Ami I cried hi iny anguish, ''Alas, how
soon
Life's beauty and glory depart!"

A luti'sr from Itev, Sir. Biurd, of
iMinoutoii. relating to tha coal supply
of tho Nurfch-West, was read at the
last-meeting,of the Winnipeg Historical ami Scientific Society. Iu this
letter Mr. Baird say:} that tiie coal
field appears to extend from near the
international boundary ou tho south
to an unknown distance northward,
but at least to the Lftrd River, about
DUO miles. That it does no't extend
quite as far southward as the boundary
line is evidenced by the fact that
freighters from Benton to Port Mo-
Leod nn their return journey take coal
from Whoopup, near McLeod, to Benton, a distance of about 200 miles. It
is rUmored that coal has been found iu
the Knotcniiy Valley, west of thu
Rocky Mountains, but it is certainly*
known te exist from the Mountains
eastward, a disinneo of about 170 or
SiOO miles. Evidence the most convincing and the most easily got at is
to bo found in tho banks of tlio Saskatchewan Rive:*. At tlie Rocky
Molintjiin Fort thero is a place in the
bed of the river where, before tho fort
Was deserted, tho blacksmiths used to
get the coal for their forge, prying it
up in great slabs with crowbars, and
between the fort and this—a distance'
in a direct lino of pel-hups 120 miles—
llmro is not a cut bank or a landslide
which docs not show its seam of coal.
Iu the neighborhood, of Edmonton
these scams vary in thickness from ono
or two inches to three or four foot,
and in a bank of about eighty feet iu
height have been seen four seams at
considerable distances apart. - The
coal iu (ho scams near (he surface is
usualiy of inferior quality, and crtiin-
blea readily after exposure to the air.
This corresponds closely to iho coal
found in tho Souris Valley. There are
sit mines that have been worked within a couple of miles abovo and below
Edmonton, and coal sells at $13 and 84
per ion. A considerable quantity was
exported to Battliiford tins year by
ll.itboat.
Lieut. Fumir, a fashionable young
oflicer in the Guards, dining with a
friend in a Cairo restaurant some time
since, was seized with a novel notion
of * mixing a salad iu an Egyptian fez,
A Hungarian at the ne:;t table with au
Egyptian friend deemed this a deliberate insult to his companion, and oaltod
out the young oflicer. The hitler had
no objection to lighting, but at tho-
urgent solicitation of his friends lie refrained. Thu ultimate consequence of
the affair was that ho was compelled
(o resign his commission in thu Guards,
the Duko of Cambridge in particular
evincing the greatest hostility to hiin.
Tho caso is attracting great attoutioti.
Her Majesty, who entertains a deep
horror of duelling, has taken Lieut.
Farrar's side, and the young oflicer has
addressed a pamphlet totltuDukuof
Cambridge begging to bo reinstated.
A curious statement has just boon
published showim/ that between ISilO
and 1881 inclusively the French Canadian Roman Catholic missions in Ontario, the North-West, and ilrilish
Columbia, have received from Lyon3,
France, ou account of tho propagation
of tho faith, tho sum of .?!>U7,2-15, and
from othor parts of thu world 0*163,-
707, or a total of 91,391,037.
Tho Assessors' returns for the city
of Toronto show an increase in value
of real property within tho city for the
present ov'or tho preceding year of
nearly two and throe-quarter millions.
The increaso in personal property and
income swells up tho total progress of
tho city within the last year to #3,185,-
000.   The increaso iu   population is
given at 5,217.

A colored porter iu nil Austin store
asked tho proprietor for a clay's loavo
of absence. "What's up now?' "Bar's

"Who in this colored man at whoso

"Tec do niggah, boss."

The Government and tlie Opposition,
The history of Responsible Government records no such flagrant in-
Btaiiceo^'eutrago upon tbe constitution as is now presented in this Province. In the old House parties
were so evenly balanced that for
some time tbe casting vcte of Mr.
Speaker had to bo invoked to keep
the Government in possession of
their seats. In other words thoy
had ceased to command a majority
on the floor of tb-e -House—a condi-
tienijantamount to'defeat, if "any re
gard'is to bo had to tbe spirit of the
constitution. Under such circumstances men possessing any honor or
independence would hnve resigned.
But the desire to hold on to ollice
overcame every other feeling, and
they not only clung to office during
the remainder of the session, but
purposely delayed the appeal to the
country for several months. When
that appeal was made it proved most
disastrous to the Government. Of
those candidates who abnourced
themselves as supporters of tbe Government less than half a dozen escaped defeat. One of tlie three Ministers was among the defeated;
while another, declared elected by a
majority of one, has since been unseated by the Courts. Death mado
-a vacancy in the Yale District, and
-the Minister who bad been defeated
at the general election hastened to
endeavor to persuade the people that
he was just the prize they wanted.
-A supreme effort was to be made.
.The-Executive power was exerted to
the utmost. Promises of office and
advantage were made with an openness and prodigality never attempted
before. The ex-Minister was all
things unto all men—now a foul-
mouthed abuser of tbe very men he
had so recently acted with aud hoped
so Boon to act with again—now iin
-independent; to a few a Beavonite.
Ninety-six voters were secretly manufactured for the occasion and
! sprung at the last moment upon tbe
astonished Opposition, Tbe ballot-
boxes were opened, the count made,
and the Oppositionist was found to
be elected by a majority of nearly
two to one! Considering that tbo
"Opposition candidate was a little-
Icnown farmer residing on the South
Thompson at the remotest end of
the district, that a second Opposition,
"candidate, put forward by tbe lower
and central part of the constituency,
was nominated and ran until dangerously near polling-day, thereby
exciting much sectional jealousy and
greatly weakening the party, and
considering that tbe Ministerial candidate was, according to tbe organs,
the strongest, and most popular man
in the whole country, it must be admitted that the result was eminently
significant—suggestive of the intense
unpopularity of the Government in
the largest district in tho prbvince.
One would have imagined that the
result of tbe Yale election and tho
unseating of tho Attorney-General
would have opened tbe eyes of tliesu
men, by an excess of courtesy called
Ministers, to the uttor unjustifiable-
nest-i, the absolute indecency of con
tinuing to cling to ollice, But un*
-fortunately such men are not open
to conviction. Their organs still
talk about having a majority in the
new House. But how can tlmt bo
•possiWel Commencing with Victoria,
we will enumerate those woll known
to be out-and-out Oppositionists:
Drake, T. Davie, Pooley, McTavish,
John, Smithe, Dunsmuir, Grunt,
Robson, Orr, Mara, Martin, A.
Davie, Allen. Here are fourteen
members respecting whose Opposition proclivities there can be no possible doubt But there are at least
three more who, if independent at
the general election, have since be
come confirmed Oppositionists
through tbe course of events since
that time, and we feel quite justified
in asserting that tbe Opposition will
bo found to number seventeen, with
A very strong probability of numbering eighteen, when the House meets.
And it yon take eighteen, or seventeen, *r even fourteen from a House
ef twenty-five, it is difficult to seo
where the Government are to find
•heir working majority, Buy 'em, as
they did Armstrong1! But there isn't
another Armstrong in the lot.
Amongst the twelve thore was only
ono Judas. ' m the ranks of the
Opposition there was only ono Armstrong.
And does the constitution provide
no remedy for Ibis sort of thing?
Yes; there is the latent prerogative
in the person of the representative
of tho Grown, The Lieutenant-
Governor can either adopt the more
drastic remedy of dismissal, or tlio
milder one of insisting upon the
early convening of the new House
in order that tho real crucial tost
provided by tho constitution may be
applied. The results of the general
election, taken in connection with
tho strength of the parties in tlio old
House, wure sufficiently disastrous
to the Government to have justified
His Honor in adopting tho former
measure. They were, in our opinion,
such as to leave him without justification in neglecting to adopt the
alternative measure. The Governor
is presumed to act upon the advice
of Ministers possessing tbe confidence of a majority of the people's
representatives, and if he is in doubt
on'that vital point it is his duty to
see that the crucial test is applied.
To*go on administering the affairs of
the country upon tho advice of Ministers respecting whom grave doubts
exist in that respect coukl not be
justified so long as the means of setting all doubt at rest is well within reach. Still less would a Governor be justified in continuing for ninny
months l6o act upon the advice of
Ministers whom ho felt morally certain did not possess the confidence
of a majority of tlie people's representatives. This latter condition of
affairs would appear to us to be that
existing in this province tit the present time.    The general election wns
unequivocal expression of want
of confidence in the Beaven administration, and if any doubt existed it
must have been set at rest by subsequent events,—tlie crushing defeat
of tbe ex-Minister and Government
candidate in the bye-election, held
in the Yale District, and the unseating of the Attorney-General aud
putting in his place a prominent and
able member of the Opposition. We
contend that the existing condition
of matters is such as would amply
justify His Honor in exercising the
more summary prerogative of dismissal. 16 is such ns would leavo
liim without excuse for not insisting
upon an -early session in order that
the point may be effectually settled
in accordance with the provisions of
the constitution. It does not seem
possible tliat His Honor could feel
justified, in tho faco of all tlie facts,
in allowing these threo Ministers,
one of them actually unseated, to go
on administering tbo a flairs of tho
country a day longer thnn is absolutely necessary. To allow them to
evade meeting the people's representatives till the middle of February, as has been hinted by tho organ,
would he to permit a rape upon the
constitution which it is his especial
duty tp guard. The new "House has
been now nearly four months in existence, and had Ministers been honest, honorable men tbey would have
called it together long ago. A consciousness that thoy do not possess
the confidence of u majority, or anything like it, makes them disinclined
to meet it; but it is precisely here
whero the latent prerogative should
come into play, and their very unwillingness to meet tbe Houso is
prima facie evidence of conscious
guilt If these men really thought,
as their organs continually assert,
that thoy would be sustained by n
majority of tbo people's representatives, would they Im so reluctant to
meet thein 1 Most certainly not,
They would reed no constitutional
pressure. No latent prerogative
would need to be exercised. They
would be only too glad to meet tho
House and demonstrate to'the country and tho Opposition that they
posseosed its confidence. But thiise
men know right woll that the meeting of tlie Legislature will mark the
termination of their offico. They
have been willing to put a few
months' salary above honor!

BY   TELEGRAPH!
SPECIAL DESPATCHES TO THE C* UkUK.
fioller Exploslotf-. &c,
OitANVii.LiI, Nov. '24.—On Monday
whilo somo men wero at work driving
piles at Hustings mill, the boiler ou
pile-driver burst and was blown high
in tho air. Two Indians who wore
near the boiler at timo of explosion
were thrown violently into the water,
0110 of thom severely scalded; another
man slightly injured on ley. A number of men working on the wharf loading ships narrowly escaped with their
lives from falling pieces of boiler. Tho
wounded men wero promptly attended
to by Dr. Masters and are ull reported
recovering.
The Indian who waa gored by the
bull at Jeriuho a week ago is-.reported
worse, and it is thought he will not recover.
How TiiK Kiiuoii OotjOiiuuD.—-Last
week wo directed utterition to tho fact
that while the Qd'Mle notice appointed
tho 27th inst. as the day for opening
the nS3JKes in this city, the Attorney-
General telegraphed instructions to
Ihe Sheriff to summon jurors, &o,, for
tho 20th. Tho organ explains that it
was all tho fault of the telegraph operator-—that the Attorney-General wrote
the 27th wliich the dporator "construed
as 20thi'' This is a very pour attempt
to "help a laiuo dog over Iho style."
Sensiblo people don't use figures in
writing telegraphic despatches, and the
man who would write such a telegram
{in figures so obscure that an expert
could not distinguish *a seven from a
nine) where the date was such 11 vital
element, isn't fit to be Attorney-General.
, Tun Exc8t>lOB Baso.—No one who
has any musical taste can fail to notico
that our hand is steadily pursuing the
road to perfection. Tt ifi unquestionably tho bent baud in this province,
and au institution of which the lloyiil
City may justly feel proud. Persons
from other parts of the province who
hear the playing of our band express
much astonishment at tho taste and
execution displayed. Tho Excelsior
Band should recoivo every possible
encouragement from our citizens.
Tub Tny.'iT.—Editors of newspaper-!
nro often bored to death with what is
called original poetry. Most nf the
stuff sent in under that name iB usually original bosh, without either
poetry or souse. But wo arc sure our
readers must have boen delighted
with tho several poems which have
lately appeared* in the Comjmiuan
from tho pen of local ^contributors.
Many of thom havu pott'essed a merit
which entitles thein to much mqro
than a passing notico. Wo publish one
to-day, on thu firat page, which wo ndi
vise everybody to peruse carefully. It
it undoubtedly tho work of a poetical
genius.
DltlFTlNO   WITH   THK   TlDi:. — While
two young men were out boating last
Thursday afternoon they observed ti
fishing boat loaded with lumber drifting tip tho river before the tide.
They pulled up to tho craft, nnd found
no person nn board. The load consisted of about 2,000 feet of lumber,
and on top of this lay a coat aud hat.
Tho young men, niter a careful examination, arrived -it the.conclusion that
the owner of the craft had fallen overboard und perished iu the treacherous
waters. Fasteuiug.a rope to the boat-
they proceeded solemnly and with
muffled stroke to tmv her back to the
city. But the leaded craft was heavy,
and tlio rope bruko. After struggling
desperately and swaatlifg fnrioualy
thoy succeeded in reaching tho esplanade above Lyi.ttm Square, Juki
then ouo bf them perceived a shot-gun
rise up iu the boat, followed by a man
with a determined look, wlm wanted
lo know by what authority lhey had interfered wiih him ami his bunt. The
young men tried to explain as lust they
could; but tho shot-gun couldn't see it
just t]ial way, and threatened an immediate bombardment unless his craft
was put back where it had been found.
There was po escape; so thu young
inoh towod iho loaded craft away out
into tho river, far enoligh up to satisfy the shot-gun. Then thoy rowed
back to tho city, slid up a back street,
softly, aud reported that tlioy had enjoyed their boating immensely.
Nociif Arm.
The settlers ou fho North Arm are
sparing no piihia to make the concert
and tea-meii'ting ori Wedneaday ovening an enjoyable occasion, Thero can
he no doubt about the music being
good, and wo can promise, that thore-
freshineut department will not be behind tliu mental treat in point of excellence, Tho arrangements mado for
the accommodation uf those wlm may
wish to go from this city and neighborhood are so complete aud ou su libera!
a scale (absolutely free) that it will be
strange indeed if a large deputation
does not go down ou that occasion.
Indeed both pleasure and duty point
that way, and it is iu tiio true interest
of this community tu cultivate a closer
acquaintance with tlie sot tie moots,
' Tltc Bell Tower Couycrsat.
If the lirst entertainment fo to bo
tt:ken as a fair sample'of thoso which'
are to follow, (hero is no doubt thnt
Uio bell tower fund will bo a complete
success. Tho audience wliich assembled in the Brill Shed on Thursday
ovening was, one cf tho largest wc have
['ecu at any entertainment, and the
entertainment itself was exceptionally
good. The programme .consisted of
soiitfs by Miss Woods, Mrs. Sillitoe,
Air. Thomas, aud Mr. Hickman; a
duet by Miss Dickinson ami Miss
Woods; a piano duet by MoBsrs, Hickman and Ijiiwouberg; two piaiiit solos
by Mrs, Trew; two piano solos by Mrs,
Peele; a piano solo by Mr. Lowonberg;
four tableaux; and music by the Excelsior ItrasB Maud. With a few exceptions tho pieces woro well tendered,
Tbo tableaux were exceedingly good,
and tbo refreshments were all that
could be desired. Tho ladies arc certainly to bo congratulated ou the complete success uf the lirst cnnvorsa/.iotie.
The proceeds, wu believe, amounted
to over J?1I)0. '

A rather amusing communication
appeared in the last edition of the local
organ. It was from tho pon of an old
man of the mountains win has recently been making considerable contribution's to that paper. While purporting
to havo beon written by a farmer in
tho Now Westminstor District, it was
in reality written from Victoria, It
announces' that "The present Government must go," and it openly advises
mir contemporary tii nop over to the
now Government, which it Bays will bu
comprised of "Draku, Alex. Davie and
Pooley.-1 Now, in so far as advising
our contemporary to Hup over to thu
now Government is concerned tlio old
man might havo saved himself tho
trouble, as our contemporary h| quite
certain to Hop— if he cun (fit a-uij en- -,
canyatjement. As regards the personnel
of the new Government tha old man is
somewhat astray, huwever. Duos lie
not know that Mr. Drake was offered '
and ■ Hi'used tho Premiership six numllis
ago ? And aa for Mr. Pooley, although
he might well aspire to tho position,
he is not after ollice and would notjie--1
copt a portfolio. So that, as a maty
of fact, of the threo named, only olio
will be in tho new Government. The
old man lian been toodimg among the
mountains fur his "horuaqppe" to be
of much account in forecasting political events. But tho freshness of the
advice to the arch fioppist to prepare
to iim) with the chango of Government
is indeed refreshing.
Prd.vlii-Sldl i\utonimy.
Tho people of Manitoba and the
Canadian Nnrih-West have been for
somo time engaged iu au earnest agitation for provincial rights. The disallowance of provincial (iota chartering
local railways is regarded as a very
serious interference with the progress
and development of tho country.
Whether rightly or wrongly, tho Canadian Pacific Railway Syndicate in popularly believed feo contemplate the complete control of till CVuadiaii railways
went of Ontario- Suoh a powerful
monopoly may well awaken seriously
those whoso in,crests are chioily concerned, for it would undoubtedly ro-
sult in high fares tiivd inadequate
accommodation for the transportation
of alt produce and supplies. Influential public meetings have been and are
slill being held throughout the prairie
province to protest against the interference of tho federal -authorities in
provincial railway matters. This is
not a question of, politics tit till, for
these protests have been fully and
firmly supported by both Reformers
and 1 Conservatives- The people uf
Ontario also have a grievance against
the; Dominion Government respecting
questions of provincial rights. The
.Streams Bill, passed liy tho Ontario
Li-gialature, wns disannulled by the
federal authorities; and lint Jong ago
Sir John Macdonald declared nu a pub-
lie platform that ho would tidcu I'nmi
tho provincial governifiouta the right
t-e dwil with liquor licenses. Tliese
agitations 111 the e-iat arc lint without
interest to tho people of llriiish Columbia. * Provincial, autonomy is something which must he defended vigorously at all hazards. Tho Dominion
House of CoVnuiuna is now so large,
mul the number of, representative:! to
that TJouau, from this provinco ia so
small, that our local interests nro iu
.danger of being neglected or misunderstood if lett to federal administration.
With our splendid maritime advantages thoro ,18 perhaps not so much
danger uf railway monopoly becoming
a burden in this province; but there
are many other questions touching our
autonomy which ahould bo watched
with jealous interest. If tho federal
authorities take; away the right of
provincial governments to giant local
railway charters, they may take away
other rights until our legislature will
become a mere machine in the hands
of federal politicians. We hope our
representatives in the Commons will
he found standing up for provincial
rights. It may nut ho .our ux that is
iu immodiato danger of being gored;
but our turn may cottje before wo expect, and the sooner tho question nf
autonomy is definitely setljed tlie better will it bu for u.i and our sister provinces, Wc all remember what kind
of govei-umqnt we had iu this province
when our affairs wore managed in
Dnwnitig-stroet. It is very doubtful
if they would bo better managed tit-
Ottawa.
When Dr. Norman McLeod was minister of the Barony parish ill Glasgow,

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER Lt.
ON THE mtINK OF DECISION.
(Continued,)
"That is Captain Leslie; isn't ho
well disguised? It was a good idea
not putting the real names on tho programme; it was better fun finding people out. Isn't Captain Leslie looking
well ? Be is very handsome," said
Miss Frasor.
"Very," replied Ronald, dryly; and
the young lady found him but a taciturn companion.
Next day Muriel's own pony-
carriage came to tho manse, with a
note begging Mrs. Bennett to drive
up and hear something of importance; and greatly wondering what the
news could bo. sho put on her bonnot
and went. It was late when sho returned', and tho truces <jf recent tears
in her eyes were hardly consistent
with her smiling expression.
"Well, I've great news for you
both," said she, entering the parlor
whero father and son were sitting.
"I wonder if a man ever could keop a
So»d fire on Ins hearth.   I doubt it,"
ie continued, stirring the coals into a
blaze.    "Can you -guess my news ?"
No need for one of tho listeners to
guess. Ronald knew it, and sat silent.
"Can a woman evor speak out whon
slit has anything to tell ?" said Bennett, smiling.
"Muriel is engaged to Capt. Leslie,
younger, of Ardonshaugh, The marriage is not to be for six months yet;
her father thinks her too young. And
he ie terribly vexed, he tells us, he-
cause Captain Leslie won't loavo tho
army; and Muriel herself does not
wish it. She says no man shall turn
idler for her."
"Why can't he go home and attend
to his duties there, instead of following that godless profession ?" inquired
Bennett.
"Because his father won't allow him
to do anything on the place, Sir Duncan says. But ho—Sir Duncan, I
mean—wants him to st tile at'Inverallan; he'd find plenty U do there."
"And ho refuses?"
"Only for the present. He wants
to become a major, I believe, or something of that sort, before he gives up
h:iB profession. A very pleasant and
handsome young fellow he seems to
be."
"Ay, wife. It's wonderful how
pleasant and handsome a young man is
always accounted when he has just engaged himself to a girl."
"Well, yuu shall judgo for yourself,
for Muriel aud he are coming to call
to-morrow; and if you don't consider
him good-looking, I shall think littlo
of your taste."
"When are they coming ?" Was lhat
hollow votoe Ronald's that spoko ?
"Between four aud live," replied
his mother, without looking nt bim.
She did her best for bim, poor mothor;
she never allowed her anxious eyes to
light upon him, nor ashed him to say
» word of good-will; and he was grateful to her for her tact.
One word she herself aaid, however,
not long before the visitors woro expected—"You'll see Muriel and wish
her joy, Ronald, when Bhe comes ?"
"I will see her, mother," he answer*
«d, shortly; but she heard him leave
the houso soon after four. He had
•only gone into the gnrdon, where he
loitered till, seeing the two figures advancing, he met thom. at tho gate, aud
wrung Muriel's hand.
"I wish you every happiness," he
said, in a low but steady voice.
"Thank you, Ronald. You have
met Captain Leslie boforo, I know."
"Yes," replied Ronald, unable to
refuse the young man 'fi proH'ercd hand.
"You must excuse my turning back
with you; I am obliged to go out this
afternoon."
"What a nity! 1 thought you wen
aura to be m, and I wanted you and
Frank to see each other. However,
it can't be helped, and you will have
many opportunities of meeting."
"Fewer than you think, perhaps,"
•aid Ronald, enigmatically, and, liffc-
his cap, passed out at the gate.
"What can he menu ?" said Muriel,
*'How odd he is sometimes! I cannot understand him."
"I dare say not," replied Leslie. "I
fancy I know more about him than
vou do."
"You! But you'vo only seen I
once or twice.''
"True. I'll tell you about it by-and-
by.   Here is Mr. Bennett."
The minister was obliged to confess
to himself that his wife had hy no
means over-praised the young soldier.
He oven forgot for a while, in talking
to him, that he was a man of war; and
the subsequent half-hour was pleasant
to every one, for Leslie hud tho gund
taste to appreciate Mrs. Bennett's old-
fashioned courtesy, and Muriol was
happy in seeing those ahe loved making  friends.
It was strange that, though the
visitors stayed so long a time, Ronald
did not come in; and ns soon as they
left, Muriel naked Leslie to explain, as
he had promised, the remark he mado
on entering.
"My darling, did it never occur io
you that the poor lad worships the
very ground you tread on ?"
"Oh, Frank, how dreadful! Oh, it
can't be true!" exclaimed Muriel,
standing still and blushing.
"I am certain it is true. I saw it
tho day we mat him at the loch; and.
Muriel, I am almost sure he was
watching you from behind a door at
. tho Stirling ball. Don't cry, darling;
it is no fault of yours, or of his either."
"But it sosms so terribly unkind to
mako an old friend—my dear mamsio'a
son, too—unhappy. Oh dear, I am
afraid you are right! I never dreamed
of it, though I thought him very odd
and, abrupt. Poor dear Ronald! Oh,
Rank, I am bo glad I am going to
Ardenshaugh to-morrow I I could not
bear to seo him again."
"I would not have told you, dear,
if you had not been going away. When
you rtturn, if he is here, you can see
loss of him. It will be better for him,"
said Leslie, looking into the sweet face
that seemed to him mado to win love.
Even while the lovers were talking
of him, Ronald, from his place of con-
C-saiwent in the little wood behind the
village, hud seen thom go, and had returned to the house, seating himself in
the parlor. Without any allusion to
the visitors who had just left, ho
plunged into tho subject of hia own
future, and announced his fixed determination to choose a profession for
himself,
Mrs. Benttott made no attempt now
to interpose between him and his father. The storm sho had foreseen and
dreaded must break at last^and she
must endure it as best shy could.
Long and hotly did tho old man argue, but to all that he said, his son
mado but one reply—"My heart is not
in it; I should lie n traitor to truth
were I to go on."
Such an answer should have appealed to Bennett's senso of justice, but ho
was too unused to opposition, too resolved on cr.rryiug out his cherished
scheme, to ho open to conviction; and
when ho found that argument was of
no avail he launched into reproaches,
which stung Ronald into rash reply.
Then, indeed, Mrs. Bennett strove
to stem Iho torrent of bitter words.
"Ob, huflh, hush!" she cried, "boforo you say what you'll neither oi you
bo able to forget, though you try."
"I shall never forget it as it is,
mother,1' said Ronald, harshly.
"I think you'll break my heatt between you!" she exclaimed. "James,
ho's but young; can you not be gentler
to him 1 And oh, laddie, what a blessing can go with a life that begins in
ill-will V
"Can a blessing go with a lie, mothor?"
"No; I don't moan that you should
go against your own wish. I can't
help it James; I've seen for years that
the bairn was not of tho nature to tako
to the Kirk. I hoped he'd change, but
it wasn't to he."
"Both against me! Well, it is tho
lot of some to stand alone. Tako two
days to consider the matter, Ronald;
if you aro then of the same mind, you
may go your ways-I can do no more
for you." So saying, Bennett loft tho
room.
'Could Sir Duncan help you to any
work ?" began Mrs. Bennett; but Ronald interrupted her.
"If my father casts me off, I'll stand
alone, I'll not go to Sir Duncan to
beg for help, and have his daughter
and her lover talking over my affairs."
"And you'll add to our burden and
cure, and loso a good chance of a settlement of some sort, because of a bit
of wilful pride. You're not a man yet)(
Ronald; you're just a headstrong
bairn!'' replied his mother indignantly*
There was little slumber at the
manse that night, but Ronald's was
the soundest; he had the faith of youth
iu tiio future, and folt himself all but
free. Beforo he slept ho wrote a note
to Muriel, in which, with an apology
for taking up her time, he pointed nut.
to her how her influence had told upon
him, how her words in the play had
decided him, and I hen begged her to
give him her opinion on hia present
conduct, and say if sho thought hint
justified iu going against his father.
"Hound my mother both blame.me.
thuugh for different reasons; and if
niy oltl friend could givo me a word of
'sympathy, it would make things easier.
I shall bo grateful if you will say nothing of my'difficulties to Sir Duncan;
I would rather not bo tho cause o'f
more discussion. Only let mo have
your own views, nnd they will be
enough for me." Thus lie wrote, and
signed himsolf, "Yours faithfully always, R, B."
It was a foolish note, but he thought
that the answer to it would be a treasure
that he wonld fain bear away with liim
when the terrible moment of parting
would come; ami in the heat of passion that thrilled him, ho was unaware
oi the forcu of his own words, Had
ho re-redd the letter in the morning,
he might havo modified some of its
phrases; hut he was too confident to
have any doubts as to his own coolness
or sense, and closed tho envelope after
once perusing the newly written contents.
Early the next morning, without
mentioning his intention to his mother, be put the note in his pocket, and
set out to walk by the nearest avenue
to the Hall. As he went, he thought
dreamily over his short past; the
friendships and quarrels of the village
school; tho happy days when Muriel
stayed at the manse; the rambles about
the hills; the deep glen in Dumyat,
beyond which the bare moor spread;
the black pool of Jeira, where the
trout lay hidden; the birchen copse
and bracken-covered braes, where ho
had lain for many n truant hour listening to the wild cry of the grouse, and
watching the windy whito clouds scud
across the blue sky.
He loved every rock and knnwe nf
the broad hill, from lhe gray "sot'oeB,"
whore the yellow mullein flowered, to
tho bare crest from which he could
gaze over rich plain and silver Forth,
away to the mere distant Highland
mountains, And everywhere about
the place, mingling with overy association, came the name of Muriel, every
boyish adventure had been told to her;
in overy homely pleasure she had shared; with hor he had talked over ambitions, dreams, and treasured tales;
and this happy interooure had lasted
without flaw or break until her aunt
canto. Since then, though he had
been deprived of her companionship,
ho had only thought of hei tho more;
each of his familiar haunts had become
the home of sweet fancies, in which
sho reigned supreme. At college, when
he left town and sought tho slopes of
the Braid Hills, or the crost of Arthur's Seat, from wliich his own dear
Ochills could be seen, every fresh
breeze and fair flower nnd song of bird
uttered tu him the name of Muriel;
and whon lovo of country and love of
woman are thus closely twined together, they form a passion that may
last a lifetime—such a passion as lios
hidden away among sacred memories
in a man's heart, even though anolher
woman should bear liis namo, and her
children cling about his knee.
