Irish Patriots.
Whatever may have been tlio excesses and indiscretions which have
characterised the present agitation in
Ireland, no fair-minded parson will
attempt to deny that there was a
cause. The legislation which lias
taken placti on the subject is a tacit
admission of that. Whatever may
have been the faults of head or
heart, it must he admitted that the
country ia indebted to the leaders of
that agitation, or some of them, for
much good,—good brought out of
evil, if you will, but good all the
same. And are not the rulers in a
sense responsible for what there has
been of evil I Excesses are the natural and inevitable result of noglect
to apply timely remedy. To any
that these leaders havo not been
faultless is only to any that they urn
human, There can he no doubt that
they havo been very far from perfect. Iii many instances hatred of
class bus been ns much a factor as
love of country. In aolne cases lovo
of self may have been stronger than
either or both. Yet, nevertheless,
as ineii go, these men havg been the
means of bringing about good, good
for Ireland and Scotland and Eiig
land, and they are, consequently, entitled to some consideration at the
hands of their country, although it
may be, and doubtless is, in the true
interest of the country that they
should be for a time deprived of
their personal liberty. It is iu (lie
light of these and kindred reflections
that one learns with regret what is
detailed in tho fo lowing extract,
from a letter of the Toronto Globe's
correspondent, of recent date:—
Prison life is telling severely nn
Paruoll. Used to an active, eiiergotiu
life, hi-t confinement ii breaking him
down in spirit and hi body. Life iu
Kilmaiuham prison, an described by
our Special Irish Commissioner, is
Blow torture. Thu cells are dark and
poorly ventilated, thu inmates sillier
frequently in winter from tlio bold—
which is bettor, however, than the
rush of foul, heated air, which is sometimes let in tho cells through the pipes.
Slowly, but unerringly, this poisonous
air does its work; and in a few weeks
the stoutest frame succumbs to it.
Each prisoner is lockod up in his cull
eighteen hours out of tho twenty-four.
Tlie celts are opened at nine iu the
morning, and the prisoners tiro let out
for air and exercise. At noon they
are locked in again for two hours; let
out again at two, and ponuiUe.il to
mope about till five o'clock, when they
are shut up for sixteun hours. The
strictest watch is kept upon the prisoners by the guards. • While tlio authorities arm aware of tlie deadly work
tlie noisome air about the prison, and
the long hours of confinement, are
doing, they refuse to tak* any steps to
make the condition hotter.
The views and programme of the
move rational amongst the leaders
will appear from tho remarks made
last week in San Francisco by Mr.
Henley, M. P. for Wexford :--
"Wo aro not communists in any
i souse of the term. We aro entirely
willing to nay for tho land, hut wo
want our rights—the rights of Ireland
to manage hor own aflaiia. In other
words, we desire to place our country
in the tamo relative position that California is placed, for example, in hor
position to tho Government of the
United States. We want Ireland to
ba like one of your owu states iu the
Union, subjoct to Government control,
but allowed to manage hor domestic
affairs in hor own way.'
As regards party affiliation he
says :—
"Wg belong to neither party. Wo
vote with whichever Bide gives us the
moat advantago in our great struggle
Wo have voted with Gladstone on several important measures, and sometimes with tho lato Mr. Disraeli. But
I think at the next session wo shall
generally support tho Tory party. Wo
want a dissolution of Parliament, and
tho best way to bring it about is by
defeating tho Government. Give us
a new election, and we can increase
our number from forty-throe to ninety,
and perhaps one hundred, membors of
the House nf Commons, This will
give us a groat deal of power, and
perhaps the balance of power, and
will go far towards wiqning the filial
victory which is sura to come."
Heavy on Blake.
Referring to the part taken in the
recent Northumberland election hy tho
present leader of tho Opposition, tho
Mail thus concludes a loading article:
British Columbian.

NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0., SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 1882.
NUMBER 6
It is no affair- of ours, but do tho
Grits expoct —- not victory, but—to
hold tho constituencies they now have,
under a leader who is afraid tn meet
his antagonists? Mr. Mackenzie had
many faults and failings, but cowardice
was not one of them. He was always
ready to do battle fvr his party, and
in the—to him—disastrous 17th September, 1878, he led it, and falling, ho
foil with his face to the field and his
feet to tho foe. Throughout that
groat campaign, as recently in West
Northumberland, Mr. Bhtko had''other
engagements." Ho took no part in
it. He extcnd-iil no support to his
leader, and beoauso Mr. Mackenzie
was defeated, he supplantod him.
Mr. Blake, in his speech at Co-burg,
sneered at honors conferred by the
Queen for services rendered to the
Canadian people; he fjouted at royal
distinctions, rogardlofltr nf tli« Facings
of tho Grit knights, Sir William How-
land, Sir Albert Smith, and Sir Richard Cartwright. Ho may havo wished
them to understand that in his opinion
their-usofulucss is a thing of tho past.
Mr. Blake may profess to despise tlio
knighthood of tho Garter, the Bath,
the Thistle, of St. Patrick, St. Michael and St, George; but we may tell
him that in tho opinion of a vast number of hfs fellow-countrymen ha has
attained to tho rank of a Knight Commander of tho Most Craven Order of
the White Feather.

Ilolc nouguct.
'Twas on a bitter winter's day,
I saw a Btraugo, pathetic sight*
The streets wen* gluoiny, ciM ami gray,
The air with falling snow was white.
A little ragged beggar child
When running through the cold nml
storm;
He looked ns if he never smiled,
As if ho never hud been warm.
Sudden, ho spied beneath his feet
A faded button-hole bouquet;
Trampled and wot with ruin and sleet,
Withered and worthlosa,thoro it lay.
Ho bounded, seized it with delight,
Stood still and shook ifc-* free from
snow;
Into his coat be pinned it tight—
His eyes lit up with sudden glow.
He sauntered on, all pleased unit proud,
His face transformed hi ovory line;
And lingered that the hurrying crowd
Alight chance to see Unit he was tine.
Tho man who threw tlie flowers away
Never otic half such pleasure had;
Thu flowers' best work was done that
day
In cheering up that heggtu* lad.
Ah mo, too often we forget,
Happy in these good homes of ours,
How many in this world are yet
Chid even of the withered flowers I

Over a bridge at Athens, Ga,,was
the following: "Any person driving
over this bridge in a faster pace than a
walk, shall, if a white person, be lined
85, and if a nogro, receive twenty five
lasliss, half the the penalty to be bestowed ou tho infoi'inor."
How to Cintu a Coi,n.~Upon tho first
feeling of chill or ahiverlhg remain indoors if possible, bathe tho feet in tepid
water, gradually htci'oaslfig the bent as
long as it can bo comfortably borne,
drink freely of warm ginger tea or sagd
tea, to induct! porspliiition, and take
Hagyard's Pectoral Balsam according to
directions on the bottle. Hagyard's Bal-
sam cures coughs, asthma, and bronchi-
tis.
Puf.T,MAN Cabs in England.—An
English paper has the following: "Tho
height of luxury in travelling has boen
attained, at least in England, in the
Pullman's Limited Ms press to nnd
from Brighton. Thero wo have four
sumptuous cars wherein you can stand,
walk, or sit at ease, and eat any
amount of indigestible trifles, washed
down hy non-alcoholic drinks. Tho
cost is no trifle, hut where money is
plentiful it matters not.
' Mr. Forster recently replying to a
deputation at Dublin Castle, said the
results of the Sunday Closing Act in
Ireland had amply justified tho expectations of its aupportors and he thought
ho might say that tho Government intended to renew it. As to the inclusion of the tivo cities and towns now
exempted from tho operation of the
Act the deputation had made out a
very strong case, and tho Government
would seriously consider the point.
A Hanimomk CoMPIIment,—Lady
Dull' Hardy says that in order "to
thoroughly enjoy travelling in perfect
comfort and freedom from anxiety in
the United Status, one must bo an
unprotected female. To hor the
manly heart yields his interest; gives
her the best seat, while ho broils in
the sun; for hor ho fights his way to
the front ranks of refreshment saloons
and bears triumphant ices aloft; for
her he battles with baggage master,
and, not being hor legitimate ownor,
ho carries her bandbox-—he oven carries hor habyl" Lady Hardy kindly
adds, to make it more credible, "I
have seen him doit,"

In order that the matter may be
properly understood, we propose
placing a few plain facta before the
public. The Act, section 152, provides: "Notwithstanding any by-
"law to the contrary, passed by any
"Municipality, licenses for the sale
"of liquors by retail Bhall be granted
"in open Court only, and by a bench
"of Magistrates, composed of the
"Mayor or Reeve, the Police Mngis-
"trate (if any), and one or moro
"Jiifitices of tlio Pence resident in
"such Municipality ; and the Mayor
"or Reeve shall preside at every
"sitting of such Court: Provided
"that such Court shall not at any
"time consist of less than three;
"and such Court'shall sit four times
"in each year, viz: on tho 15th
"Decomber, 15th March, 15th June,
"and 15th September." Section 154
provides that "Jn alt cases application for transfer of such licen-
•'ses, eithor from one person to
"another, or from one premises to
"another, shall ho made to a bench
"of Magistrates as constituted under
"the provisions of Section 152." The
language is Surely plain enough. It
requires no forensic acumen to see
that the power to grant or refuse is
tho same in either case. And very
properly bo—a power clearly possessed by the Licensing Court. Not
very long ago an application for a
retail liquor license was refused by
the Licensing Court at Langley.
Tho 'Applicant applied for a writ of
'"'-"■■ - fo compel the Magistrates
to issue a license. The case was
hoard beforo the Chief Justice bore;
and those who were present will
doubtless remember that the Court
not only asserted and affirmed tho
absolute right and power of the
Magistrates to refuse the application,
but commended theexerci&o of their
power iu that instance—the public
convenience not requiring a second
licensed honso at Langley. Of
course tho application for a mana-
mua was refused. When Mr. Ferris was at Victoria, a fortnight ago,
lie was instructed by the then Mayor
to obtain the best legal advice on
the question of the recent refusal of
the Licensing Court in this city to
make certain transfers. That advice was most clear and emphatic,
and it* was to the effect that the
Licensing Court had the undoubted
right of refusal in these or any
other cases. There can bo no doubt
whatever on tins point. It is not
proposed in tho present article to
discuss the merits of the cases in
question—that is, as to the sufficiency or otherwise of the grounds
or reasons which led the Court to
refuse to transfer theso licenses.
That is a separate and distinct phase
of tlie subject, and in no way affects
the one under consideration. Hut we
may be permitted to oiler a few
genera] observations. A little consideration will show the justice and
necessity of submitting the transfer
of a license from one person to another, or from one premises to another, to tbo same ordeal, subject to
the same powers and restrictions, as
the issue of a new license. In issuing a license, the Court is supposed
to keep threo things in view, (1) Is
it in the public interest that tho
license shall issue ? (2) Is the applicant a proper person to bo intrusted with it) (3) Are the
premises iu respect of which tho
license is asked, in character ami
location, such as are fitted for the
business 1 On any or all of theso
grounds the Court would undoubtedly have the right of refusal. Now,
let us see how far these same grounds
would apply to a transfer: If the
Court in its judgment believed the
transfer or continuance of a license
would prove detrimental to the public interest, it would be its duty to
refuse. If satisfied that the person
to whom it was sought to transfer
the license was an unfit person to be
intrusted with it, then would it be
tlie duty of tho Court to'refuse,.jlist
as much as it would bo its duty to
refuse the granting of a new license
to an unfit person; and precisely
the same arguments apply to objectionable premises. There is no
concealing the fact that the present
embrotflio has to a great oxtent been
tho result of tho excessive looseness
with which these matters have been
managed in tho past. In fact, people havo been brought to imagine
that the counting down of one hundred dollars was the unfailing "open
seasame"— that the money would be
taken and no questions asked, Just
as an illustration of this point, it
may be stated that tho widow of a
once licensed dealer walked into the
Clerk's office, not long ago, and,
counting down the hundred dollars,
demanded the renewal of a license
which her lute husband bad held,
but which had died with him nearly
two years before 1 In the public
interest, in tho interest of the liquor-
dealers themselves—for they are
entitled to protection in consideration of their licenses—it is surely
desirable that such a condition of
affairs should cease. As generally
happens in the checking of abuses,
one or two individuals are made to
suiter disappointment or loss; but
who shall say that it is not bettor
that one or two individuals should
be subjected to temporary inconvenience than that the public interests
should suffer 7
Editorial Notes.
The dashing enterprise displayed by
the Pioneer Line in building, during
the present season, two large first-class
steamers for the river traffic, is suggestive of the duty of the Dominion
authorities in the matter of improving
the navigation. Very recently wo took
occasion to point out tho necessity for
clearing a channel through "Snaggy
Reach"; and this work becomes still
more important in view of a winter
boat being placed on the routa. Indeed we are given to understand thai-
it will be extremely dangerous, if not
impossible, to navigate that part of
the river during tho winter stages of
the water, unless a channel be cleared.
When It is considered how much railway work along the river must increase
traffic, and, consequently, how very
important it is that every facility
should be allbrdcd fur maintaining
stoamuu.il, uu,T%&t,in» »<• &.« i„iu Uio
winter as possible, wo hup'o there will
be no hesitation on the part of tho
Government about clearing the channel in question, especially as tho cost
would bo comparatively trifling.
There can be no doubt that tho
position taken by the Magistrates comprising the Licensing Court in this
city is t!>« correct one. Whon they
have granted or refused a license tho
matter posies out of their hands, at all
events until such time as it may bo
brought before thorn again at the next
sitting of the Court. It is equally
clear that it devolves upon the Police
authorities to see that those to whom
the Court may havo refused a license
shall not sell in contravention of the
law. Strictly speaking, the resolution
of tho Council, instructing the Mayor
in the matter, was superfluous; but,
under tho circumstances, it was wise
and useful, as a means of strengthening tho hands of His Worship, and
sharing with him tho responsibility.
Thoro is no possibility that we can discover of evading the issue. Tho man
who is selling without a license because the Court refused him one is, in
tho eyes of tho law, in no bettor position than an ordinary unlicensed seller
who never applied for a license. Both
alike set the law at defiance—the one
openly, the other stealthily. With
tho Licensing Court rested tho responsibility of refusing a license; and no
other power can grant quo, With the
Police authorities rests the responsibility of preventing the unlicensed sale
of liquor, and the Licensing Court cannot share in that responsibility, even
if it would.

reasonable effort would ho mado to
avoid tho employment of Chinese

impression created, there would undoubtedly have boon an outcry against
creating such a monopoly.

Lynch Law.
Tho news which came over the
wires from Seattle ou Wednesday was
rather startling. Throe men lynched
in one day! Are we to infer that the
godess of justice sloe-path at Seattle?
The murder of Sires took place several
weeks ago. Many in this Provinco
will remember him, He and his fam
ily resided at Victoria and at Cariboo
in both of which communities they
wero very much respected. That cir
ciimstauce imparts special interest to
the news from Seattle, ns there are still
in British Columbia many friends of
deceased. Seattle is making n reputation that is far from attractive or
enviable.

Senator Mclnnes,
Referring to tho elevation to the
Uppor House of the late Member for
this District, the Mail says:—
Dr. Mclnnes, who succeeds [Senator
Cornwall, was born fu Inverness, Capo
Breton, in 1840; was educated at Truro Academy and at Harvard University; removed to Dredsen, (Jilt., and
was elected reovo of that place in January, 1874. He subsequently removed
to New Westminster, B. C, nnd was
returned to Parliament for tho first
time in March, 1878, and again nt the
general olootiun. The course of Dr.
Mclnnes in Parliament has been consistently in support of tlio present
Government. His manners have been
popular; his oratorical habit is suitable
to tho thoughtful nnd grave debates of
tho Senate; and we have no doubt
whatever that tho Upper House will
welcome him as a valued member.
His knowledge of tlie Dominion is
obviously comprehensive, since it includes the affairs of three provinces.
Steamboat Enterprise,
The keel of tho new steamer to take
tho plaue of the ill-fated Elizabeth
Irving on tho Lmvur Fritter is about to
bo laid at Victoria, and it is intended
that tho stoamcr shall be linUhod by
tho first of May. She is to bo 1"5
fort keel, 200 foot over all, 34 feel
boniii, 8 feet hold, and provided with
all tho verv latent improvements, including electric light, patent steam
steering goar, &j. The upholstering
and fitting!* will all bo of the very
best, and tho atoauier, whon finished,
will bo in every rpspect tho umat complete and luxurious yet seen in tliesu
waters, and the most powerful withal.
Tho keol of another river steamer
will he laid nlhiOst immediately nt this
city. It will be specially adapted for
wititor traffic, having the grento-t attainable degree nf lightness. Tho
dimensions are 100 feet long, 30 feet
liiiini, -U feet hold, and maximum
draft 12 inches. Tlm steamer will bo
provided with steel boilers (the first iu
the country), and will, in all its fittings
and parts, ho a lirst-class boat.
Both of these steamers are for tho
PiONEim Link, fm* the trade between
this city and places alum1. Who shall
say that tho PIONEER Link is not prepared to keep pact) with the march of
progress—to be ready for the impending boom? The project of placing .mi
tho Fraser river a steamer adapted
to winter navigation in a most important one, and will be hailed with satisfaction all along tlie Lower Fraser.
Burying the Dcatl.
Not long ago we suggested that it
might be desirable to employ a hearse
in burying the dead from our hospital,
provided it did not involvo too much
additional expense In doing so nothing could havo been farther from our
intontion than to presume to dictate to
"a number of gentlemen who are capable of doing their duty in any position." Wo merely made a suggestion,
nnd gave put rba'Buijs for it. Actuated
by motives altogether beyond our
comprehension, some one has rushed
into print iu opposition to tho employment of a hearse, which ho asserts
would involvo an additional expense of
twelve dollars. Now, if he means
that it would cost twelve dollars moro
for each funeral, arid if he is correct
in his estimate, we would feel inclined
to agree with him as to tlie question-
ableness of tho change, But how are
wo to know that he is correct? It
appears to us that the only proper and
business-like way to ascertain exactly
what additional exponso would bo entailed by the substitution of a hearse
for a waggon would bo for the Board
of Management publicly to invito tenders, such tenders to state the price
fur ouch burial, if a wagguu be, employed, and also tiro 'price if 'a hoarse
be employed. By adopting this the
usual course- in all such matters, the
Managers would havo before them the
nocessary information to enable them
to arrive at a proper und intelligent
conclusion; and if the result showed
that tho difference in the price was too
great, thero would be an ond to the
mater. The Board would have dono
thoir duty and tlie public would be
satisfied. It will scarcely be necessary
to remind tho gentlemen composing
tho Board of Management of the
Royal Columbian Hospital that in
most other communities a hearse, of
thu plainer nnd less pretentions sort,
is employed in all such cubos, In
Victoria a hearse, very similar to the
one in this city, is used for Hospital
funerals in whicli friends of deceased
do not bear the expense; nnd we cannot seo why any loss respect should be
paid to the memory of the dead and
the feelings of the living on this side
of thu gulf than ou the other. At the
same time wo are bound to admit that
if tho difforenco in the expense wero
too great, .wo could not advise the
change. Let tho difference be ascertains! iu the way already indicated,
and then the question will ho very
easily settled. And the same rule
should undoubtedly bo applied to the
Insane Asylum.
the ferry, because there was not "unanimity" among them. Now, if we had
been unanimous, and had followed his
advice (before ho turned his somersault), would wo have had the ferry ?
Docs not the stupid man see whnt a
foolish position ho places himself in
by charging us with tho delay in establishing n ferry through want of
"unanimity?" But we are united,
nnd we were united long beforo he
found out that his opposition to the
ferry was. directly contrary to the
interests and wishes of the farming
community.
Tho settlers on this side the river
aro not so ignorant as your contemporary thinks. They know that a
ferry such us you have advocated would
vastly improve their circumstances, by
giving them easy access to the market.
They know who is responsible for tho
delay in establishing the ferry; nnd
they know, also, who "rescued it from
perdition." That knowledge they intend to keep fresh and green until
they put it to practical use nt tho
ballot-boxes next summer.

is, being a British .subject of tho ago of

nothing more. Tt will thus be Been
that, while, iu order to be a member

value of not less than $500, a man
need not own a dollar's worth of property, either real or personal, iu order
to sit in the Provincial Parliament and
make laws for tho whole country-
make laws, in fact, regulating and restricting municipal legislation. What
a glaring anomaly. The practical result is that good, substantial men have
boen debarred from taking seats iu our
Municipal Council, simply because
they do not happen to bo registered
owners of real cstuto within the Municipality of the assessed value of
not less than five hundred dollars,
while, in the Provincial Parliament
we have men sitting who do not own a

About the Steam Ferry.
Editor Colombian—And so your
contemporary has "jumped jiin crow"
on the ferry question! Well, it is very
amusing for us farmers, although I
fancy it must havo been disagreeable
medicine for tho editor, We understand porfectly how tho thing came
about, hut tho question that puzzles us
a who are "the innrj intelligent
amongst" us who called upon him, and
thus saved the ferry from "perdition."
But it is, perhaps, just as well that
your contemporary has discovered,
oven after tho eleventh hour, that in
opposing the ferry he was engagod in
the foolish tusk of trying to "make
water run up hill," n kind of employment which seems to havo engaged his
attention very often. His opposition
could never have prevented the success of tho scheme, however, for everybody understands that he is paid for
whitewashing the Government, no mutter what they do, or refuse to do.
Ho says tho farmers themselves
have been the obstacle in tlio way of

(Continued,)
Sometimes he sat under the beech-
trees on tho lawn, with Cora by his
side, reading to him some book of
poums, or some deeper philosophical
work; and sometimes the man of
thirty-seven and the girl of eighteen
wandered for hours together over the
ferny hollows of tho downs or through
the deop, tangled woods,
Onco ho took her up to tho manor-;
house She was much improved by
tho grandeur of the ciitrauoe-hnll and
the dining-room, with their oak carvings, stained-glass windows, and family
portraits painted in panel.
"It is glorious!" ^he said. "And
what a view of that park from the
window! Suppose this Iionso belonged
to one, how happy ouo might bo!"
"Do you think so V said Mr. Wood.
"Happiness does not consist iu living
in fine houses."
But Cora tossed her pretty head
impatiently.
"If anyone gave you this house you
would rejoice, and you would live in
it, and delight in it, because it is so
beautiful; and you would like soft-
cushioned carriages and swift horses,
and all the pomps and luxuries of
life as well as / should!"
"Do you covet thoni so much, Cora?"
asked the overseer, sadly. "I am
sorry for that, because I have none to
offer you."
She started, and looked at him with
mingled wonder and alarm.
Too two had wandered into n coppice that lay at the back of tho house
—a green coppice, full of beech-trues
and hazel-nuts—the sun's rays came
down through the verdant boughs, and
lighted up tho bronzed, thoughtful,
handsome faco, with the tale of its
thirty-Bovon years' battle with the
world written out in bold, brave lines
upon it; the koon gray cyos were tilled
with a light that mado them beautiful.
"Cora," said Charles Wood, "will
you be my wife ?"
But sho started, and the color first
deepened on hor cheeks, and then
died out entirely.
"Oh, no, no!" sho said, quickly.
"Your fiiicnd—always your sister—
hut not wife—not wife!"
He turned so white, that she grow
frightened.   Was he going to faint I
"Mr. Wood!" she said, "don't mind
it; I am too young—for you—and you
aro so strong, and brave, and wiso,
and you deserve a wiser wife. I like
you so much—you seem the kindest
friend I ever had; but love is such a
different thing!"
"I. see," ho said, sadly, "I am too
old and worn to bo loved; there are
silver threads in my hair; I have
known toil, and trouble, and anxiety.
When you wed" (a littlo bitterly) "it
will bo some gallant youth of twenty
summers, with a smooth chin and a
budding moustache, and a walking-
cane, and a French hat; he must bo
romantic and despise work; and since
most people must work or starve, ho
must he rich. Ah! Cora; you are fair
enough to lure a rich young lord of
twenty summers into marriage."
"Take courage! I will never—never
marry for money or rank, Mr. Wood
—never! No, I must love if I marry;
oh, so much! I must feel that I would
rather live iu a garret with the man I
love than in a palaco with anothor."
"Ah! and tho man you love must be
of Italian tinting, like one of tho
olive-skinned cavaliers of tbo old masters. And must he be a poet or a
musician ? or will it suthco if he waltz
like a harlequin at a pantomime ? Ah,
sweet lips; don't look so distressed;
dry thoso pearly toars, as some old
song says; forgive mo if I urn a littlo
savage, but you havo wrecked the
greatest hope of my life. I never
loved woman till I saw you, and now
it seems to mo as if you had, torn up
my heart into shreds us an unconscious
babe tears up a butterfly. Never
mind,leavo it to quiver in anguish; it
must learn quietness and wisdom."
But Cora was weeping bitteriy.
"Oh! how was I to know," she said,
"that you would care like this I I
nnvcr—never thought of this!"
"Well, well, child, it;can*theljelped
—it is a misfortune, I must go away,
though I must writo, and appoint another man to take my place; and I
must go abroad as quickly as possible."
"Why abroad 1" asked Cora. "Why
not live iu London ? I should not seo
you thero; and then in time you would
forget, and marry some wiser girl.':
"No, no, child! No, no; I shan't
forget; but wo won't talk any longer
of a subject so uninteresting as myself.
I must go away, but I shall let you
know my address; and when the happy youth, with the r-rniooth chin and
the budding moustache and the walk-
ing-cano, comes along, toll me, nnd I
will make you a wedding-prosent."
Mr. Charles Wood made some excuse
to Mr. Rodwoll, and hurried up to
London the vory next day. Ho did
not say that ho was not coming back
again, but Cora feared that he never
would. When ho was gono life seemed
a blank to the romantic girl.
"I do not love him," sho said to
herself. "How could a girl of eighteen love a man like that, with so many
traces of caro and thought iu his face
—a man*of thirty-seven? But I
liked him—oh, so much, and I miss
him frightfully."
Cora wandered alone over the downs,
and her heart felt heavy within her.
"He has a beautiful face," sho said
to herself, "for a middte-ngod man,
and if I were only thirty instead of
eighteen, I could love him passion
ately;   but as it is, that is out of the
attention, of course," and she sighed
eeply.
Cora came home in the balmy dusk
of a July evening, vory tired from her
wanderings in the woods. Thu French
window of the little sitting-room was
open in front. Under the green veranda that ran round tho cottage was
placed a low, soft chair. Into this she
sank, for she was very tired, and sho
was not perceived by her parents, who
were in the dark sitting-room; they
could1 hardly seo the outlines of tho
back of tho heavy chair, and thoy did
not know that Cora was seated in it,
though with her back to them, and
could hear every word they spoke.
"I am ruined—ruined!" sobbed Mr.
Rodwell. "Some time ago I saw this
coming—idiot that I was to speculate;
And then, when the rascally company
had swallowed up all my little savings,
they mado a call for four hundred,
house liabilities, saying there would
bo a fine return in two months of two
thousands pounds each. I was idiot
enough to borrow the four hundred
from the firm; they will call it embezzling. Ha! ha! ha!"—his laugh
was awful in the oars of Cora—"and
now next week Mr. Chester himself
is expected, and he and his lawyer are
coming together; the accounts will he
looked into—I shall be arrested! I
tell you what, wife, I will blow my
brain's out this rory night!"
Mrs. Rodwell uttered a bitter cry,
and then Corn sprang up and came
running to her parents.
•"Father!" sho said, "I can save
you—I will save you. Listen: Mr,
Wood is not so poor a man as he
seems; he has some hundreds—I will
ji3k him for them! Yes, yes, he lovos
me; oh, so much, that I know ho
would die for me. He asked me to
marry him—I refused; but I know his
address', I will marry him now to
save you, my dour father, from disgrace! Do nothing rash, dear father.
I will marry Mr. Wood; he is very
nice and good, and brave and clever,
and I ought to love him; so I will
write by this night's post, and ask him
to come to mo.
Her parents embraced her.
"I will pay him back in time," said
poor Mr. Rodwoll.
And Cora went to her room, took
out her desk, lighted hor lamp, and
wrote tho following letter:
"Dear- Mr; Wood,
"I am very, very unhappy.
Oh! come to me, or my heart will
break.
"Yours truly,
"Coea."
Mr, Charles Wood had given Cora
his address iu a quiet street near Ailel-
pln Terrace. He was sitting at breakfast in a shabby-genteol littlo ground-
floor parlor when Cora's letter arrived.
Ho opened it, and as his keen gray
eyes fastened upon it, they filled with
a sudden brightness akin to that wliich
lights up thu sullen heaven after a
summer storm, when tho sunshine
streams out through the rift of a dark
cloud; nil his brown face glowed with
the hope nnd happiness of his man's
soul. Ho kissed the littlo note rapturously.
"My sweet darling," he murmured,
"then lifter all you iind you love mo 1
Ah! I had thought that I was winning
your love, and the disappointment was
hb torturing as the sting of a deadly
snake! Well, now I will be off to
Lonsdale by tho next train!"
Mr. Wood soon packed his portmanteau, sent for a cab, and was
driven to the station. He arrived at
Lonsdale just as tho sun was sotting
behind the mnnor-house woods. He
went straight to Hnzol Cottage, nnd
found Cora iu the front garden on the
tiptoe of expectation.
How lovely sho looked in a muslin
of pale blue blush-rose tint and a spray
of white double jessamine at her
throat! There was a tiny spot of
color, bright as pink hawthorn, on
either cheek. Her dark eyes were
filled with a feverish light—not quite
tho light which her lover had expected
to seo there. She came forward, took
him by the hand, nnd led him into the
summer-house.
"So glad—so thankful you have
come! I knew ynu would; you are so
kind! Wo aro in such trouble—my
poor father and mother! You can
save them!"
The lover's faco darkened a littlo.
"You sent for mo, then, to help
(»thers—your parents 1"
"Oil! yes; because after nil you are
good and noble, and you love mo; and
if I cannot love you as I had dreamed
of loving, still I would be a good wife
and do my duty faithfully hy you! I
will give up my dream-hero, Most
likely I should never have met him
in this world!"
"At least, you speak honestly!"
There was an unutterable bitterness
in his tone. Cora was too much occupied with tho thought of the ruin
that was hanging over hor father tn.
notico it much, though the mingled
pain and anger smote upon hor unpleasantly.   She hardly knew why.
"I mn honest," sho said, "and so is
my poor father iu intention;" and then
sho told him of the terrible folly of
which her father had been guilty—of
thu four hundred pounds that were
wanted—of the ruin and idiame, worse
thnn death, that hung over the low-
roofed, pleasant cottage. "And if you
will lend this money to my father,
Mr. Wood, hi will save, and scrape,
and hoard to pay you again, nnd I will
be your wife, and a good, obedient
one, I trust."
Silo was pale now, and stood beforo
him with white hands clasped and eyes
filled with anxiety, for there was no
responsive smile ou the brown face of
Mr. Charles Wood. Was ho going to
refuse j Hid he fallen in love with
anothor girl 1 What odd thrill of
anguish, wild and sudden ns the shot
that enters the breast of the soaring
bird, was that that quivered through
her maiden's heart at the thought,
"You will not help us?"
"OhI yes, Corn, your father shall
have the money by to-morrow afternoon's post! I will return to-night,
and draw it out of tho bank in the
morning. Four hundred pounds—tho
savings of yonrsl"
"May Heaven bless you!" nnd the
girl seized his brown hand between
hor own two white ones; but she felt
no answering pressure. "Are you
angry, Mr. Wood I"
"It is un reason able to he angry!
You have but acted up to your woman's
instincts, and they have guided you to
tho best business-like solution of your
family difficulties!"
.   "Mr." Wood!"
Sho roloased his unsympathetic
hnnd, and fell back a pace or two, and
looked at tho dark, handsome face,
with its brown beard, clearly-cut fen-
turos, and look of stern, sad intelligence, where strength mingled with
gentleness; nnd a voice deop in her
heart asked her a question; "Hns he
not tilt look of a hero ?"
