Questions and Answers.
A subscriber who contemplates
coming to this Province writes from
Ornngevtlle, Ontario, asking a number of questions, to which wc shall
endeavor to return answers in order
as we proceed.
"What nva the prospects of a
largo city springing np at tho western terminus, of the Canadian Pacific
Hallway ?"
Tho prospects nro excellent. The
terminus, on Burrard Inlet nnd
English Day, will possess the beat
harbor accommodation on the North
Pacific—surrounded by material and
facilities for building tip a forgo city.
The circumstance of the terminus
being eight hundred miles 'nearer
the Asiatic const nnd in tlio direct
lino of trade winds mul currents,
taken in connection with the important fact Unit by this route the distance between Europe und Asia will
bo some 1,200 miles shorten' than
by any of the lines south of .us, must
forever givo it nn enormous ml van t-
over Sjin Francisco or, indeed,
'tiny more southerly ]wint. And to
this must be superadded the further
Advantage of being tho sole outlet
and western gate, so to speak, of a
country immense in area nnd practically boundless in resources.
•What would be its prospects as
a manufacturing centre V
Simply immense! With such a
country at its buck and sncl\ a mug
nificont water-wny in front—with
boundless coal stores beneath and
around, with iron close by in illimitable supply, witli abundanco of wood
und water, with cheap food in sen
>nnd on hind, with a climate unsttr-
■inssod, nntl with tho world for a
market, there are few places on the
tftico of tho earth moro favorably
situated for becoming a great manufacturing centre,
"How is it for agriculture and
fruitf
' In tho popular acceptation of the
term, British Columbia cannot be
Considered an agricultural country;
ind yot with a most genial climato
;uid considerable areas of grateful
•toil, it is safe to say that the coun-
y possesses agricultural resources
uifliciont to sustain a largo population, It seems improbable, how-
iver, tlmt the country will ever be
■ome a considerable exporter of food
roducts—excepting always those of
er inexhaustible sea farm. In the
nest of fish she can supply millions,
put it may be proper to point out
he fact that the smnllness of the
rea of agricultural hind does not
'end to render the pursuit less pro-
table to those engaging in it. On
lie contrary, it seems reasonable to
ssume that tho very fact of the
Lrea being somewhat circumscribed
Holds a substantial guarantee that
ood products, moro especially away
i'oin the seaboard, will always com-
unnd more highly remunerative prices
turn if the reverse were tho case. One
f the staple and enduring industries
the cou.itry will be quarts; min-
ig, which must insure ti good mar-
et in tho interior. As regards
nit, it- may bo said in a word that,
ii so far as tho coarser sorts are con-
irned, British Columbia is a good
hit country. But, with tho ox-
ption of it few of the more shel-
Bred and favored localities beyond
o Cascados, no great success has
ion attained in raising penehes,
•apes and tho like,    Most ordinary
■nits, however, aro produced in
itindance and with little trouble.
■.eh, in a few hurried words, is our
swer to tho questions of our os-
stned correspondent.

A Mysterious Mission.
Halifax, N. S., Aug. IC—Tho recent purchase here of a Bohooner named
the Conquest, about twenty years old,
by General Butler of Boston, has created much comment, and many surmises are made relative to the object
of the owner. The vobsoI sailed yesterday, Tlio Morning Chronicle nays;
"As hor clearance states, sho is bound
for Port Crockett, said to bo in Madagascar, a loner voyage for so small a
vessel, and tho secrecy with which the
whole enterprise has boon gotten up
makes it broui not improbable that
that port is not her destination. As
far ns we hnve boon able to learn it appears that enquiries for a British bottom of suitable dimensions hnve been
made for some timo past byCapt. F.
Tarr, of Gloucester, ft jnmtlemnn well
known for the prominent part he took
in tho late unhappy war of our southern
neighbors. Failing to Iind a mutable
vessel Hying the British (lag in American wafers, Capt. Tarr despatched an
agent to.Canada, whero at last in Halifax the required article was found in
the sehoonor Conquest, aglnomy, black,
pirnticaMouking craft, with extraordinarily high outworks, for a vessel of
ber size, well fitted to hide the small
guns with which our observations lead
us io bcllovo she will be mounted.
Cnpt. Tarr,-who has boon hero for tlio
past two woelyii lias superintended iho
alterations that have been mado in tho
vessel to suit her for tho peculiar trip
whatever it' mny prove to ho, Lnrge
quantities of stoves, sufUcioUt for HO or
40 men for tiino months, were ombark-
od on tho Conquest, Notwithstanding
that only two boys besides the captain
and mate Bailed in lior from tilus port,
the departure of some twonty seafaring
men to the eastward by a land conveyance within a fow days loads to the impression that the Mndnynsanr-boiind
vossel is not going to son light-handod,
Added to what wu have snid tho fact
thnt arnis and am munition arrived by
tbo last Boston steamer consigned to
the projectors of this enterprise, a not
unnatural feeling is folt that Captain
Tarr, either for himself, or more probably forOkmurnl Butlei'j iRongagotl in
undertaking that will hour watching,
nnd tho outcome 'of whicli may bo
looked forward to with somo interest.
Phaoi: Mor.fi PitoiTmir,R.— TheMhi-
heapolis Tribune Grand Forks correspondent snys:—In conversation with
General Rosser, tho latter snid that tho
Gaasolton brunch ran across his farm,
and he thought it would be completed
at an early date. The General does
not believe the report that the branch

already owns half the road. Ho thinks,
however, that it will be controlled by

thnt the Canndiaii Pacific and the
Northern Pacific aro beginning to recognize tho fnct that tightiin: against

Johnson was a fine poker player-
one of tho beat iu Tennessee. Hu
used to tell of a game he played with
Grant in ISlill. Grant was then at
Washington, and visited tho president
ono night. After a short talk Johnson proposed a game of poker. Grant,
who was an inveterate player then,
jumped at tho chance. Cards wero
brought and they begun to play.
Grant lost steadily and heavily. The
game was f'l ante, cnll 83 nnd no limit.
At last Grant said: "Johnson, I will
play you ouo moro dual around, nnd
thou wo will quit; lam  tirud of this
 ■ foolishness."   Johnson dealt and
wouldn't como in. Thoy made it a
jack pot.
The jack pot went on increasing in
size; neither could open it. At last
thoro was glU in the pot. Grant wns
dealing. Johnson picked up his cards.
He had ncus up. Grant looked at his
cards and quietly laid them down,
Johnson said:
"[will open for 820."
Grant, without moving a muscle of
his cast-iron countonatioe, leaned back
in his chair aud said slowly, looking at
his cards all the time:
"I shall havo to raise you §50, Andy
I can't holp it."
Johnson wns a littlo suprisod, but
stood the raise. Grant asked him how
many cards he wanted.
"I just want one; how many do you
want?'
"Eh?" said Grant, carelessly. "I
don't want any this timo."
Johnson picked up his card. It
was an ace.   Ho bet §100.
"I will seo your §100, Andy, and
raise lior §2,000.
Johnson snid afterward tho bet came
near taking his breath away from him;
but Bomotiiiug told him Grant was
bluffing, Ho felt a presentiment that
ho was,
"Grant, I will seo your fi'i.OOO, and
raise hor $200.
Grant clenched his teeth nnd his
lips camo togothor like u steel trap,
"I will boo your §500 nnd raise you
§5,000 better," •
'I got a littlo senred,"'says Johnson, "and I thought maybe ho had
fours on mo. So I said: 'I'll just call
you; what lmvo you got ?"
"Jack high," said Grant, and, with
an oath, jumped up from tho lablo,
got his hat and loft, giving Johnson his
note for all ho had lost.

After ihe Contest.
The vcault of the election in this
city on Monday m,uat bo diBiippoitit-
ing to every one who holds political
honor and personal integrity worth
defending.    Mr.  Armstrong   naked
the electors to endorse tho most flagrant breach of  faith  and the most
barefaced piece of political trencher
probably ever known in the Instor
of this country, and there wero found
10'} men willing to furnish tlmt endorsement,    Of  tho many who did
not voto  ut all wo have only to say
that under such circumstances tho
sin of omission was very little  less
than that of commission, Many peo
pie wero dissatisfied witli the candidate brought out in opposition, and
held.so lightly the obligation of the
froncliise that they permitted political fraud to triumph.    Mr. Ferris is
without   political  experience,  it  is
true; but surely no er.pericncu at nll
is  better than an experience which
hns ended in treachery.    Mr. Aim-
strong stated on tlio public platform
that politics in this country was not
a matter of principle but o'i- dollars
and cents; and he appealed for sap-
port to the selfishness of the electors*.
Tho result would seem to justify Mr.
Armstrong's opinion in so far as the
city is concerned at least.    But we
have  pointed out tiiut, even talcing
this selfish view, tho electors should
have rejected Mr. Armstrong,    His
election  cannot   save   the  Government; and within  ihrec  mentha ho
will bo nothing more thnn a private
member in  opposition to the new
Government,—without power, patronage or respect.    Moro than that,
he lias completely alienated himself
from  liis  colleagues in the district,
and  has made himself obnoxious to
every  respectable   member of   the
House,    By this man. upon  whose
brow the word "traitor" is indelUbly
branded, the city of New Westminster is to be represented.   At a time
when  possibilities of such vast moment  to our future prosperity and
development are lying near at hand,
it is most unfortunate that the Royal
City should have permitted itself to
be placed  in a position so powerless
and so unenviable.   The contest has
been  useful iu affording Mr. Armstrong an opportunity of bringing to
light   the  true  inwardness  of   his
treachery.    It has also shown tlie
danger uf  leaving such  contests to
thoso who care little for their honor
or thoir fame.   There ore scores of
electors in  the city to-day who are
disgusted at our  political position,
but who did not concern themselves
sufficiently  to' poll their votes ou
Monday.    When erents now iu progress havo worked ont their results
the people of New Westminster will
come lo realize what they have done;
and, when  too late, (hey may have
cause bitterly to repent the vote of
last Monday,
power and the support of the country!" If iir. Armstrong had said
the party who luul tho lnoney-bug:;
of the pro*, ince, and the power to
gratify his consuming desire for office, we are inclined to think he
would have been speaking with greater cm recti, ess. Tiie second sen tenet! in
the organ's report is utterly opposite
to the facts. Everybody who attended tho meeting knows that Mr.
Armstrong nover stated any such
thing about the dry-dock.   Again:
Mr. Orr, on being called upon, referred briefly to tho fact that ho had
asked the sullrages of tho electors as
an opponent of tho present Government and that so ho still* remained,
He did not hold the round robin Mr,
A.ymatrong signed as a matter of much
importance but ho distinctly denied
being a follower of Miv Armstrong or
anybody else.
In this extract also the first-sentence is correct, and tho second is
positively false. It was Mr. Armstrong, not Mr. Orr, who held tho
round robin to be a inatter of very
light importance. Mt. Orr hud a
very different idea of what constituted the honor of a gentleman, Hu
stated that he signed the round robin
in perfect good faith, but h<i believed
now that at (he very time Mr. Arm-
slroifj signed it he was in negotiation
with the Government fur a poiijuliv!
The organ gets its report of public
meetings on the streets, and hence
these glaring misstatements, if it
wished to bo lair and holiest it would
row proceed to rectify its blunders.
Crooked lleportlng.
The local Government organ
makes many lame attempts at repotting public meetings, but its report of tbe political meeting last
Thursday night was ono of tho most
conspicuously absurd we remember
to have seen,    For example:
Mr. Armstrong then oxplainod that,
hia object in joining the Government
wns to suppurt tho party tlmt really
had tha governing power and tho support of tho country. In relation tu
thu Dry Dock, that it waa decided by
the present Govornment to hand it
over to tho Imperial or Dominion Government rather than that it should coat
the Provinco one dollar; audi an arrangement- however, took timo.
The first sentence is about correct,
and to those who do not know "Sir.
Armstrong's peculiar weakness it
must seem utterly uncomprehenaihlc.
On the 28th July Mr, Armstrong
wrote to the lender of the Opposition, congratulating him upon the
Opposition victory at the polls, and
declaring that at the very least there
would bo IG Oppositionists in the
new House. On the 11th August
Mr. Armstrong eagerly signed his
nnmo to a round robin declaring that
he had no confidence in tho Government, aiul authorized tho leader of
the Opposition to make use, of the
round robin for tho Lieut.-<!overn-
or's information and guidance. On
the Hth August Mr. Armstrong
joined the Government; and lie now
attempts to oxcuse his action by saying Lhat he was simply joining "tl"'
party that really bad the governing
Tiie L'nltinflest ('uf*
Sir. Armstrong can scuicely feel
grateful to the Victoria Government
organ. When the Colonist published
bis celebrated letter to tiie leader of
the Opposition, congratulating him
upon tho success of the party at tin;
general election, und claiming a certain Opposition vote of IG, the Stan-
dard declared that the letter must
be a "barefaced und malicious forgery." It seemed impossible, even to
tho Standard, that any person hold*
irg a position of public trust could
have been guilty of such shameful
treachery, I-'or an act so contemptible ifc could iind no word of excuse,
and the only way out of the embarrassing position was to deny the authenticity of the document. Bat
events have too surely cut off the
Standard's retreat. The original
letter, in Mr. Armstrong's own baud,
signed by himself, has been in our
possession for several days. It has
been seen by many of onr citizens
who arc familiar with Mr, Arm-
stt'ong's writing, nod' no shadow of
doubt exists with regard to its gonu-
itieress. Mr. Armstrong himsolf hns
never publicly disowned it, knowing
weM thnt u denial could easily la;
oonftouted with the letter itself.
The authenticity of the Utter being
established beyond question, wo are
curious to know what tho Stanilard
will havo to say. Will it .swallow
its com-cientious sciupies, and take
the traitor into its embrace; or will
it denourco his double-dealing as it
deserves? And what will the Premier think of his now acquisition?
And what soitof emotions will tlie
Ueut.-Govenior expedience when he
sees this man sitting in the executive
chamber as one of his confidential
advise-si
yvemwik'.!.
Thine a»'e si-ity-mx pi Isoners con-
lined in the gaol in this city at the
present time, and iu order to provide accommodation fur that number
two and sometimes three have to be
huddled together in a celt sis by
eight. We are led to believe that
matters are even wo-'se at Victoria
—that ns many as six aro crowded
into a single cell! This is a condition
ot affairs whioh ought not to be tolerated, Considerations of health and
comfort alike forbid its continuance.
A good substantial provincial gaol
ought fo be erected here, to which
all long term prisoners could be
transferred, and Victoria gaol become a merely local institution. By
this means tho expense of maintenance could be materially reduced and
more useful and systematic employment provided, There could bo no
dispute ns to which sido'of the Gulf
tho provincial gaol fdiouhl bo on.
From this time forward it is undoubtedly on the Mainland thnt tho
principal crops of criminals will he
produced, and ihere would be neither
sense nor economy in tailing the
grenler number across the gulf. This
is tho more central place, and it pos-
sessi'«is the advantages of a plentiful
supply of good pure water and food
products of every kind.
•    '   "Clover Valley."
Fot; long weary years Hall's Prairie settlement was left without n
school, and tho consequence was that
several familie;*, left, resolved that
their children should not grow up in
ignorance. At last a school has been
conceded and a grant of §250 made
towards providing a school house.
The Trustees have been fortunate
enough 'to secure the services of an
excellent teacher (Miss "Norris) and
so Clover Valley enjoys a school.
But there is still a serious want.
The school is taught in a private
room IOmJ 2 feet, borrowed for the
occasion, nnd wo arc "assured that in
winter tho room will bu altogether
untenantable, and unless mure suitable pioiniscs can be provide^ the
school must break tip. Of course
the amount granted is wholly inadequate for the pii'-pose, and tbe object of our present writing is to urge
upon the Government the duty, the
absolute necessity of making ft further grant of §250, to enable
the t.'nstees to p* ovido a pro -
per school house. It is not a large
sum to ask, more especially when
the importance of the object to bo
attained is considered, aud we sincerely trust the Government will see
its way clear to place that sum at
the disposal of the trustees, and to
do it promptly iu order to admit of
the school house being erected before
the bad weather sets in.

RowDVisar.— Our local contemporary
appears to bo greatly disappointed be-
causo "Honest John," as it pleases
him to will Mr. Robsou, was not "m-
terruplfid" at the public meeting on
Thursday night. Tho fact is that clement represented by our contemporary
was in such small force upon the occasion that discretion was considered the
better part of valor;*—it was not deemed
prudent to attempt that peculiar kind
of brute-logic advocated by the organ.

that Mr. Smitho objected ta honest
John's presence al tlie caucus of Opposition members, anil that he was admitted at hi-! (Mr. Orr'a) instance.—

On iho authority of Mr. On* and Mr.

Somo time ago wo suggested the impending royal visit as constituting an
additional reason for clearing streets
and cleansing gutters, &§ Of course
our local contemporary ridiculed the
suggestion} but, nevertheless, wo
iind a similar procons vigorously going
on at Victoria. Unless something iu
this direction bo done, many of our
streets will present anything but au
attractive or oven decent appearance.
Ilut altogether apart from royal visits
and that sort of thing, public health
and convenience demand certain improvements and reform's. Look, for
instance, at that part Of Columbia
street opposite or nearly opposite Mr.
Lewis' Livery Stables. A great big,
stinking Indian shanty, for drying salmon, has beon deliberately planted
downright on the street! What can

Tho figures now stand; Barnard, 281;
Robininson, 110; Vornoii, 74. Two
more precincts have yet to bo hoard

possibly raising his vote to three hundred. In any case the victory is decisive and eoinplete and it tends to
allow how glaringly i*.t fault the organs
of tho local Government are whenever
attempting to gauge popular opinion,
The leading organ confidently predicted tho success of tho candidate who
now stands at the foot of lhe poll, and
who will havo received less than one
vote to Barnard's four!
At the Units.
There was a goodly muster of buth
marksmen and onlookers at Glover
Point Butts on Monday, tho occasion

Rest for tne Weary.
Yale cries for a day of rest—rest
from tho incessant grinding tear und
woar on brain and brawn; and Christian-like, Vale chooses the Christian
Sabbath. A largo and influential
meeting took placo on Wednesday, a
report of which comes to us in tho
columns of tho Senlinel. Tho following resolutions wero carried unanimously:
1st. That iii die opinion of tliis
Meeting the manner of spending Sunday in the town of Yalo ia a disgrace
io* any civilized country) au interference with the liberty of the Subject,
aud highly detrimental to the health
and welfare of its inhabitants.
2nd. Tliat as long as Mail and
Freight Steamers continue to arrive
on Sundays, the observance of tho <J y
is impossible. t
Ollb. That tho Petition on the table
to the Poaim.iBi.et* General, soliciting
him to mako certain alterations in
Mail arrangements and suggesting a
plan for tlio same, bu generally signed
and forwarded to him;
Moved by R. Douglas, Esq., and seconded by Mr. D. MoQuurrio; and
unanimously adopted.
4tu. That a Committeo bo appointed to wait on tiie owners of the Steamboats, asking them to cooperato with
tho Town in endeavoring to secure the
desired result.
STtit That this Meeting pledges itself to take iiH possible measures to
avoid transacting business on Sunday,
and to preserve the samo as a Day of
Rest.
Tho movers £n<\ seconders of these
resolutions wore amongst the ihost
influential in the community. Mr;
Onderdonk, the 0 P. R. contractor,
wtis absent from illness, but was represented by Mr. Cunningham. The
following .note from Mr, Onderdonk
was road to tho meeting:
"You niiiy assure llufto present that
I shall tie very glad to corporate in
anything that will conduce io tho doing away of nil bnsinoaa un Sunday.
But every effort must bo mado to
reifcler Uiis'*'pra6Ucable by getting the
day of arrival of bouts changed. I
woujd bo much obliged if ML*. Havens
would also go in Mr. Ward's place.
If we want rest on Sunday wo will
havo to fight for it now as tho last
chance,''
There seems to lio lib doubt about
attaining tlie object sought- if all will
ooly bo true to their professions, Mr.
Ondordonk hun much in his power,
aud it is reassuring to/ind him throwing himself with so much heni'tuiosa
into the movement. It is, indeed, nu
anomaly io find iho people iu a Christian country petitioning tho Government to be allowed to keep the Sabbath! The Coui.miuan wishes the
movement (lodspeod, and will cheerfully do anything iu \fo power towards
helping onward tlie good caute, Should
not this movement in Yalo act as an
incentive to other communities to take
higher ground mt ihe.ptua'iuii of Sab-
bitt'It diaorviineo ?
ChillhYimck Dyking Scheme.
An adjourned meeting to consider
din iljkiny of Ibe "tipper aultlcmoD.*"
Uth held Aug. 30. Tho report brough!;
iu was to tho elect that a great deal of
low land wns found between Mr. Grey-
oii n and tho head of Nelson slough,
though by keeping (1 or 10 chains from
ihe bunk a cedar rid!;o rould bo utilised. Af.er crossing "Nelson slon-.h,
which is wide and shallow, tho Cn-toii-
Wpods wore viitoied and the land found
to bo from li.\ to 10 feet below watermark*,
Tho conclusion arrived lit by (he
mooting was that uiilu-is tho Government gave a helping hand iho work
could not be undertaken/ owing to ihe
oxpeiifJivo work to bo done. It waa
therefore resolved that tho Secretary,
C. S. Ryder, communicate with tho
Provincial Government, also to write
to lhe Hon. J. W. Trutch with regard
to Dominion lands inside of ihe proposed dyke (there being several ihon-
tstiiul aero*.) which, if the Dominion
Government*will allow to bo nsaessed
the sajne as settlers' lamU, vi. i
iho dyking scheme to tako a dei
shape.
The proposed sclume is as follows;
From the Cheam hill to a point on
South bank of Primer below what fo
known as tho Orchard. That would
protect all hut a fow ou tho island between Camp rind Hopo sloughs near
whero they empty into tho river. A

vitality that tends toward coiir-minption,
which is really Scrofula of the Lungs.

diseases from a pimple to an Abscess, by
purifying thb blood, correcting the secretions aud giving a healthy tone to each

The indications of the approaching season seem to threaten an unusual araointt
of the various fortfls of bowel complaints.
Our leaders would do well to supply
themselves with some reliable remedy
like Doctor Fowler's Extract of Wild
Sti'wherry, as a safeguard against sudden
attacks of Cholera Morbus, Colic, .Dysentery, ito., that unless promptly treated
are often suddenly 'fatal.
Tho nearer we follow nature in the
treatment of disease, the more successful
wo are. Dr, Fowler's Extract of Wild

We beg to call tlie attention of the
trade ami the public to the well-known
quality and oleganco of finish of onr
Gold Case:', guaranteed by na to be of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S. .Mint assay,
or of fourteen kamt Ciild, as may be
stamped, and afoj io our mode of selling
tho same, charging only for the Actual
WicioiiT of the gold itKed, and "not for
tho base metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc. To ibustrate
which it tag accompanies each ono of our
Cold Cases, whioh plainly indicates not
only tho gross weight of the case, but
also tho Net weight of the gold,
Li explanation of the above we desire
to Riiythat the old plan of charging fertile gross weight of the case, as if it wt.ro
all gold, worked well enough aa long as
the manufacturers were content with the
amount of brflOD and steel nutually ro
quired in its constrlictiou; hut when the
business was degraded into a contest aa
to who (-mould get the most base metal
into tlio .least quantity* of gold and call it
a Gold ease, then tlio time came whon,
in the interest of dealers in American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
plan of selling, showing the buyer exactly how much Cold caoh case contained.
To avoid im position, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
boars' our trade mark ou both case and
movement. Cold eases are stamped "A.
W. Co.;" and guarantee certificates accompany them, Silver eases are stumped
"A. M. Watch Co., Waltham, Mass.,
sterling silver," aud are accompanied hy
guarantee certificates, signed It. F. Rob-
bins, treasurer, The name ''Waltham'1
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered necessary Ity reason of thu fact that our cases
arc frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of other makers and vice versa,
thus allV'cting injuriously the performance of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, which fo intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by us. It is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to be a public scandal
that there is 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 eases offered in the market are debased from 10 to20 per cent,
from the I'li'ility they assume to be.
Tliis is a t'nlmi upon tlio purchaser, and
accounts for tile low price at which ouch
cased watches have been, sold.—American* WaI'ch Company, Watehum, Mass.

"Oh, no!   Something that tbey call
hospital soro  throat, 1 think.   Yory
horrid, but not   dangerous, I fancy.
They say they all have it,"
"Horrible! Did sho not como homo
to be nursed?"
"Judith como homo? Oh, dear no!"
''List-in, Miss Conisbrough. At the
end of thia mouth I am going away
from Soar Foot. I am going to bo
married, and, as my future wife dislikes tho country exceedingly "
"What extraordinary tastes sho must
havo!"
"I dn not know when I shall return.
Nft for a long timo, at any rate.
Now, seeing that I shall be awny, nnd
cannot possibly annoy you by my presenco, do you not think ynu could
persuade yourselves to como to Scar
Font now and then,   when you wanted
such a walk, nnd "
"I should havo to come alone, then.
Delphine told mo that neither she nor
Judith over meant to enter Scar Foot
again. I don't know what thoir
reasons may be, I'm sure, but that is
what thoy said. "Everything is very
stupid—so dismal and mysterious.
Wo, I think I won't promise, Mr.
Aglionby; but I seo you would not
object if I did come."
"I should fool as if a ban had been
lifted from my house and mo," ho
said.
"It is well you are going to be married," observed Rhoda, composedly,
"for thoy say thoro is an old kgond
that it is dangorous to live alono at
Scar Foot."
"I have found ifc so," ho replied.
And she inclined her hoad to him, and
passed on. Aglionby, as ho rode
away, wondered how much longer he
could enduro this sort of thing.
On various pretexts, Lizzie bad deferred tho dato of their marriage till
tlie middle of May, But tho day
after his interview with Rhoda, tho
newspapers brought the announcement
that Parliament was fo be dissolved in
a week. The Govornment, unable to
carry ono or two of their favorite
measures, bad resolved to 'appeal to
the country.
Tho   news  acted   liko   magic upon
Aglionby's mood.   It Wrought back in
a groat measure bis old eager political
bias: his ardor and'MiT'' and zeal for
* the Liberal cause.   Above all, it offer
ed him something  to do,  something!
with which to occupy  himself during
that weary month of waiting which
laid yet to elapse before his still more
dreary wedding could   come off', and
his married life, dreariest of all, should
cininienco.    Long    ago—last    year,
before tho great meeting in October
bad   come off—he  and  others   had
agreed, in the event of a general olec-
*   tion, to canvass certain districts, and
to do thoir utmost to help forward tbe
cause.   What reason was there why he
should not even now bo as good as
his word? He could not merely canvass
now, ho could help with money.    Ho
would revisit his old friends of the, Irkford Daily Chronicle, and offer his services.    His decision was soon taken.
Tho very idea of sitting inactive at
Scar Foot, while all tiio life and light
and din of battle was going on, waa
impossible. One finu morning, after
recommending Mrs. Bryce to onjoy
herself in whatsoever manner seemed
good unto her, ho drove to Hawes, and
took thu train from that place to Irkford.
Ho arrived at Irkford toward lhe
middle of the afternoon, and drove to
tho tiSiee of his old friend the Irkford
Chronicle. A few words served to explain his changed position, and to
mako it clear flint he desired to offer
his money ami his services to the
cause.
Needless to say, that both were rapturously accepted. Aglionby had an
interview with the editor, who remembered his lettGrs signed "Pride of Science," perfectly, and would be delighted to receive moi* communications
from the same able pen, Thero was a
discussion on the Wiiys and means, and
ns such vigorous hvlp us Bernard's was
particularly welcome in tho "throng"
nf work whieh had so suddenly overtaken the start' of tho Chronicle, he was
let into all the secrets of the campaign,
promised to go and dine with iho
editor at his club at half pout seven
that night, and then, saying an revoir,
ho departed.
"Whereto, sir f" asked the cabman,
who had boon waiting for him.
"Crano Street — or stop! Do you
know    the    Nurses1    Home,   Fence
Streot r
"Yes, sir."
"Woll, drive slowly past it, and then
get on as fast as you like to 111 Crane
Street."
Ho had always known vaguely whero
tho Nurses' Home was; lhat is, ho had
passed and repassed it scores and hundred:; of times, almost, without noticing
its existence.
It did not take long to got to Fence
Street, whero the driver began to
slacken his pace. Tho Nurses' Homo
was almost opposite to his old prison-
house, the warehouse nf Messrs, Jen-
klnson, Sharpo & Co. There was little
ahoulnt to distinguish it from the other buildings in the street which, noisy
and dirty as it now was, had in former
days been one of tho aristocratic quartets of tho town, us was testified by
the numerous large, hands-toe, and
massively-built houses which at one
end formed n kind of Bcjuaro, round n
black, hideous, aiid melancholy church.
Mirny of these hoiiBea were the town
residences or consul ting-rooms of doctors; on .ono of the brass door plates
was tho inscription, ".Dr. Hugh Wciit-
wortli." Next door to this was the
Nurses' Homo, a similar but rather
larger house, with very eloim steps and
brightly-polished windows. Nnt a fact!
nor a form wns discernible at any of
them. Tho cabman walked his horso
slowly past the house, and f hen, whipping it up, Bernard was hurried to.
ward the rapturous moment when ho
should meet his betrothed.
He colloijity with tlio editor and subeditor of tho Chronicle had taken up
somo timo. It was evening, fully half-
past six when ho arrived at 19 Cruiia
Street. Ho would only hnve time to
have n short intcrviow with Lizzie, and
loavo his portmanteau, and then it
wonld bu timo for him to go to town
■JWnin »nd moot; Mr. Williamson, Mm
editor.
As ho approached tho houso, ho mechanically felt in hia waisfcoat-pocket
(such is the force of old and long-continued habit) for his latoh-key; and
was amused tn find if thoro, Tho garment was one wliich he must have
worn when he had last, been staying
there, and ho bad carried the latchkey ntfay without knowing it. Without ringing the bell he ran up the
steps, opened the door and entered.
Was it a dream'( Somo one ran out
of the baek-puvlor as of old sho used to
run, exclaiming in a tone of welcome:
"Oh, hero you are! I m so glad you
are early. Come in! W\ty... .Bernard!
Never blessed with a superfluity of
wit in .an omorgoncy, Miss Vane,
white and trembling, loaned up against
the wall, pressing hor hand to her
bosom; and staring at him with wide-
open bluo eyes, in which blank surprise was gradually giving placo to tor-
'Lizssie—what ails yon? You look
rather horrified than othorwiso to soo
mo," ho began; and thou, seeing that
the driver had placed his por-manteau
in the passage, aud was standing in the
doorway, looking intelligently interested iu the whole proceedings, Aglionby
paid and dismissed him, pushed the
door to without noticing that it was not
absolutely shut, and once more turned
to Lizzio, who, though she had recovered from hor first shock, was still
suffering from visible and extreme embarrassment.
"Perhaps I ought to have let you
know, Lizzie," ho said, taking her
hand, and drawing hor into the parlor,
where she stood as ono paralyzed, looking at him blankly and with something
like terror—-with anything rather than
pleasure or welcome. Her hand lay
limply in his, she said no word—mado
no sign. Always, before now, sho had
made some show of welcoming him.
Ho looked earnestly at her, struck and
puzzled by hor demeanor, and he discovered that sho was elaborately dressed, and that, despite her paloness and
disturbance, sbo looked very lovely in
a, gown of some soft, forgct-me-unt
blue stuff, profusely trimmed with silk,
and with dainty lace nifties at the nock
and elbows. On the table lay a whito
fleecy-lnoking mantle, and a pair of
long, pale-bluo silk gloves, the color of
her dress. Tho house was vory quiot
—so quiet that it might have been
empty.
"Yon aro going out somowhoro!" ho
said.    "Is Mrs. Vane out?"
"Yes,'' camo in a low voico from
Lizzie's parted lips, ut; she still seemed
almost insensibly to slnink away from
1 him.
He still held hor hand, and attempted to draw her nearer to him; but by
some slight movement sho evaded him
and ho continued:
Where aro you oil to, and with
whom?"
Sho railed herself with a great effort
and said, though in a voice which had
a strong nervous quiver in it:
"1—-we wero going to Lhe thoatro,
tho Goldings and 1.   And—Percy—
he wits to call for me, and—and "
"Oh, I seo," Ho smiled. "Woll, I
wish I could join you; but I've come
over on electioneering business, and
am going fo a meeting to-night with
Mr. Williamson, so perhaps you will
excise me. And—is it quite convenient to your mothor to put mo up here,
Lizzie? because, if not But why
do you look so nervous and disturbed,
child? Surely my coining, evening unexpectedly, cannot have upset you iu
this manner."
For oven though in matters of deportment not tlio most observant, and
certainly (ho least suspicious of men, he
could not but feel surprised at hor confirmed pallor and nervousness. Lizzie
was racking her brains to contrive
some moans of escaping from him, if
only for three minutes, of scribbling a
pencil nolo, and sending her mother's
domestic flying with it to the Geldings'
house. She could not look unconcern*
od, while pondering iu dire distress of
mind upon bow beat to carry out this
Hellenic.   She now stammered:
"Excuse mo a moment, Bernard.
I have left something upstairs. I must
"My dear child, you are not fit to
move until you have sat down and-rested a little, or taken a little wino, or
smelt some salts, or whatever is the
proper thing tn tin. Sit down horo and
tell mo what's the matter with you."
He drow her with gentle but irresistible force tn an easy chair, seated
himsolf beside hor and instinelivoly
began to pity hor, ns it, was his nature
tn pity anything that looked frightened m* alarmed, and Misa Vane's countenance at that moment was strongly
expressive of both theso emotions.
There camo a sudden sharp knock at
tlio front door; then it was pushed
open; a footstep was heard in the pas-
sago, and a voico cried: "Now, Lizzio,
whore are you ?''
Lizzie started up, visibly in an agony
of apprehension. With Bernard, surprise and pity had been transformed
into the blackest suspicion.
"Lei me speak to 111111!" said Lizzie
breathlessly,
"No; let him come hero," retorted
Aglionby, still holding her hand fust.
"How dare he call yon liizziu' iu that
fashion I Come on, Poroyl" ho cried
aloud, in a dry, distinct voice: "Miss
Vane is waiting for ynu--and, for the
matter of that, so am 1.!'" ho added bo
ne.ith his breath.
Thero was a momentary pause in the
footsteps. Then they came on again,
tho dour opened, and Percy appeared.
When ho saw them lie looked, first astonished, then appalled, but at last uttered slowly: "Aglionby—you!" and
came to n dead pause,
"Yes, I—ivliv not'" remarked Bernard, never losing his hold of Lizzie's
hand, and seeing clearly enough now
that MfflMhing would have to ho explained hefore many minutes should
havo passed.
Ho looked steadily at Percy for a
littlo while, nnd at last observed:
"It's true Tve arrived unexpectedly,
but I should have looked for n warmer
welcome from you both, I must say."
