The SJig fit>!*d Traile.
The vigorous  writer at  prese'it
pi-esidinj over tlie editorial coiummi
of "the Inkiid"8e%lmcl has been
wilting very forcible let.e-s nnd articles, npon the impo.-Ianco of adopting timely mcisn.-es for s-cii'-ing to
British Columbia the trade incident
to ni'wny (ions|.uc;ion in tlmt for-
lion of the coi>nt<y lying between
the SeHri'k i-arje nnd (lie Eoc'iy
Mountains, in "lhe  event  of  tbo
southerly or Kicking Ho-vs Pars
beinj  adopted   fo.'   the   Ojniidi.in
Paci*ic Hallway, lint in his appa.eiit
d-^.'-e lo monopolii:o the cedie of
nilvoi.il.iiig such  ine.isn.ci, he, un-
■vitlltigly, no doubt, does injustice
lo   the L'niTisn Comi-mia**.   13c-
gimiing with lhe ye.i", we have writ-
ten » number of nrticlc3 upon tlie
subject,, quite as many as we can
oount on our finges,—not,, dunbt-
leas, with all the grace of diction and
*oi-,.e of logic ever at the command
of the wiler in  the canons., but,
reve'the'ess, to (ho beroo" oii«- a.ii'i-
ty.   In one of these ni-l icles, on tlie
S-fnd of Febiua.-y, we endcvo'cil to
point out the impori.tnce of ..ecu.
lhe fc'ude of the region in question,
u.jjniirg that   while, tho C.  P.  II
Syndici-te we.-e, for tlieir own advantage, seeking permission to curry
the line farther sooth than thoir bargain permit"ed, it wns only just and
•i.oper that the Gove-imioiit shouM
'exact such conditions as would se-
fenio nil the logilimuto udrnntages io
the country—p.ovent a sao. ib'coof
trade on account of the change of
route; and in subsequent articles wo
showed that in outer to secure the
trade of thut region to out- own pro
duceiS   and   l>ade>s, it   would   tie
nr essa.y that the link through tho
Eagle Pass, connecting the waters of
Spalhinlcheen with those of tho Ool'-
, in.ibiil, should be consl.tided iu the
first inslance.   At the same time
appealed to ou" i-onrcncnt.il ivoi in
the Dominion Pn'liaincnt to urge
upon tile Government tho duly of
i^qui.-ing the opening of n way fo.
the trade of the Province as a < on-
' dition of being allowed to adoplt the
Kicking Horso Pass.   If it should
turn out the    the .ep.e.c'itatives
hnvd negloc.cd their duly in this re-
' spect and permitted the only opportunity tb puss unimproved, the Con
ukbian will not be found hcltating
r about hoh.i.'g thom  to a st'-ict ac-
co.irit.    We quite agree  with  the
writer In the Henlinel an Idfilm im.
I piuden. o of relying upon the Syndi
f cate opening tho Eagle Puss to us of
their own accord.   Where (ho in-
| teitrUs involved ave so momentous
1 and we can demand as n right the
I opening of that door, it would be
j utter folly to leave all to the goo.l-
[ will of a' sou'less corporation.   It
1 may be  tbat  their own interests
wouul.l lead ihe Company lo com-
I meiico and ca< ry on the work in the
I way most condiioive to the brst in-
I leresis of the country; but if lhat
I lw so there will be the lossolijoction on
Ithoir part to engage to do what is
Idesired.   As was pointed out in a
[previous article, the legislation of
[last session only gave tho Gove n-
Iment pdwer to sanction the adoption
lot a nidio southerly route, and thoro
■seems no reason for sripp'osing that
■the   Executive lias   yet  e::o.-c'ised
■that powe'v   We would, therefore,
hppeal once More to the lepinsonta-
lives of tho Province in tho Dominion Pai liumoiit, if they have not nl-
-eady done so, to make without fur-
thee delay the most earliest rep. e-
«ntalions on  that behalf   to Iho
|uthoi-ities at Ottawa.   In the nd-
nirablo address presented  by the
opld of Kamloops to the QoVovh-
r-Gene'ell, upon the occasion of His

And thoy should say, "An angel seen

From being iho dryeat and ono of tho
unhciilthiest towns in South.rest Georgia, Albany has become perhaps Uio
best waiered town in iho Siato, and
whilo tho country round about is as
full of sickness as ovor, it has had very
little indeed of lhe cusiouiary sickness,
All ihis lias bctHi brought about simply
by boring two ariesiau wolls. Over
f)00 feet of boring was dune, at an e^*
punso not exceeding $l,uO0, and a
supply of absolutely pure and ice-cold
water suflicient (o moro than supply
tho wants of Iho ciiy of S.uOO poople is
the result. Albany's esattiple is being
followed by bovcim! iowns, and wiili
ihe facts beforo (hem .'here-is no roason
why scoros of feouih Georgia towns
whicli aro now regarded as unhealthy
on account of their water should not
become as heaUby as tho average.—

The Graving Dock.
In the Terms of Union provision
wan made for the construction of a
graving dock nt Esquimalt, if not as
a Federal work, at least at Fedeiiil
expense. Those who framed these
Terms did not entertain quite such
extravagant ideas respecting that
work as havo sinco taken possession
of those intrusted with its management The provision made for it
was that the Dominion undertook,
to pay interest nt tho rate of 5 pot-
cent, upon the sum of £100,001*, for
'25 years, and it was considered that
this would suffice to indue"! a private
company to take hold of it. It was
totmd, however, that private capital
was coy of the adventure, and finally
turned away from it. It was then
that our stntesmeii(i) began to consider how the work conld be accomplished without becoming a charge
-npon the provincial revenue. After
a great deal of negotiation and Home
duplicity, it was agreed that the
-dominion guarantee of interest
should be capitalized, the Federal
-Government making cash advances
tis the work progressed to the extent
of $250,000. Having thus succeeded in turning the Federal guarantee
into available cash, the next step
was to appeal to the Imperial Government for supplementary assistance, the cost of tbe work being estimated at half a million dollars.
There exists a standing arrangement
whereby the Admiralty contributes
£30,000 in aid of building a graving dock of -ceVtAiii dimensions wherever such' a work is required for
-naval purposes. Mr. DeCosmos went
all the way to Downingslreet for
the purpose of seenrirg the £30,000.
It could havo been accomplished just
as well tb'ough ordinary established
channels at one hundredth part of
the cost. Nevertheless there was a
.great flourish of trumpets over the
-wonderful achievement,—for political purposes, of course. The dock
has, from first to lost, been made to
do duty as a political stalking-horse.
More money was i equired to make
up the round half-million, and Mr.
Walkem went on another special
mission to Downing-street He sue-
ceeded in inducing the Impe-ial
authorities to raise the grant to
£50,000 on certain conditions; nnd
thus the sum of half a million was
secured. But the Imperial grant
was not "all givo and no take."
'There is said to bo no rose without
a thorn; and this English lose was
ho exception to the rule. The concessions exacted in consideration of
this Imperial aid were briefly ns follows:—The dimensions of the dock
to be increased so as to accommodate
the largest of Her Majesty's ships;
the material empleyed in its con-
. struction to be of a more expensive
character; the whole of the work to bo
executed to the satisfaction and subject to tho approval of the Lords of
the Admiralty; Her Majesty's ships
to havo free preferential use of the
dock for a period of twenly-live
years after completion. The intelligent reader will scarcely need to be
told that these concessions were
worth mote than tho whole Imperial
grant,—to say nothing at all about
the risk of the contribution being
forfeited altogether through the
work failing to gain the approval of
the proverbially finical Lords of the
Adoiira'ty. Well, it was wiih the
work thus heavily handicapped by
Imperial exactions ard rondilio-s
that the Walkeoi-Ceaven administration sonjht legislative sarclion
for tho contract to bo let. Certain
members of the then Les's'ai.i'-e —
amongst them the p'e-ent writer—
questioned the erped'eucy of nrde-
takirg thewo'k urder tbe ci o "instances, contending that, be'e e bt^j
completed, it wonld roo-.t like'v involvein esperdilo'efar beyord the
estimated cost which had beon po-
video* for, and that, saddled with the
preferential light to free docioje
for Her Majesty's Bbips for so long
a period, it would be an annual bill
of expense for at least that period.
The opposition was met with ridicule and the Legielatnre was induced
to give its sanction to the scheme
upon the Government solemnly
pledging itself that not a dollar of
thu Erovinoial revenue would be ex
pended upon it,—that if it could not
bo done for the amounts guaranteed
by the Canadian and Imperial Governments it would not be dono at
all. The unfortunate taxpayers of
British Cohimbia already know to
their sorrow how flagrantly that
pledge has been violated. Having
'fi.-s't -frittered away a large amount
o'f money *'n a liongling attempt to
■construct certain outworks, the
Govornment -lot the contract for the
dock proper at a "price nearly equal
to tho' entire sum provided for the
whole of the work,—but undertaking
to furnish all tlie cementtequ'etedl
It is not our intention at this time
to conduct the reader through the
labyrinthian maze of the cement
bungling. Suffice it to say that,
while it would appear theso sapient
statesmen calculated upon some
threo hundred tons of cement meeting the requirements of tho dock,
they were, about a year ago, rudely
awakened to tbe fact that more tlmn
twice as many thousands of tons will
be required/ To sum up the situation
in a few words, it is found that upwards of a quarter of a million of
the people's money has already
been squandered in a pitiful attempt
to carry out the work, with every
prospect of ut least as much more
finding its way into the same sinkhole,—provided the Beavon administration shall be allowed to persist
in the ruinous folly. Nay, the probability is that the taxpayers of
British Columbia shall have reason
to congratulate themselves if no
more than half a million of provincial revenue is spent upon a work
that was not to have cost the Province a single dollar and that even
the locnl organ freely admits can
never be a cent's worth of benefit to
tho Mainland. A practical engineer,
well up in such matters, has estimated—and has staked his reputation and offered to slake money on
the correctness of the estimate—
that, as the work is now being managed, it will take a million and a
half to complete itl And when one
considers the bungling and litigation
and damages aud accidents aud political corruption which characterize
the management of the work, one
can easily imagine the estimate to
be none too high. According to that,
no less, possibly a great deal more,
than a million of dollars would be
taken out of tbo Provincial revenue
for a work which should not have
involved any charge whatever upon
the Province. Nor would that be
all, After completion the dock
would have to be maintained and
operated for the special accommodation nnd benefit of the Imperial navy
at an expense to the Province of
certainly not less than ten thousand
dollars a year. Extend that over
the period during whicli preferential
free dockage is guaranteed to tho
navy, and we have a quarter of a
million more thnt the taxpayers of
Columbia will be out of pocket for
Lhe luxury of having a "whito elephant." With such an outlook, it
is hardly necessary to say that the
prospect of any considerable portion
of the revenue being available for
necessary public works on the Mainland for the next decado at least is
exceedingly slim. We will not pretend lo deny that the dook is serving
a ve.-y useful put-pose just now. lt
was through it that tbe pro. tern.
attorney-general was enabled to get
elected for Esquimalt by a majority
of one vote; and it is understood
that the work is be.'ng carried on
just now with a specul view to the
possibility of the eui^eijoiua of the
Beaven a.l.nii isi'-ation being such
nu to render another demand upon
the coiT.ip.cd poi tion bf the consLiiu-
encv necessary!
On Tuesday week, a deputation,con-
sis. Iny; of Mayor Shakespeare, M. P.,
E. C. Bator, Esq.,M. P.,and Hon. R.
Btaven, waited upon His E-.cellency
the Governor-General for tho express
purpose of discussing the questions of
Chinese labor, Ihe Island Railway, and
the expediency of some effort to
bring a desirable class of population to
the province, and the injury nsulliht;
from the continued looking up of tho
railway londs on tho Island. With
reBpect to the Maud railway, His Excellency expressed a hope that the
work would l« undertaken before long,
but nt tho samo timo intimated that
Chinose labor was essential to speedy
railway construction. Somewhat to
the discomfiture of Mr. Beaven, ho
reminded the deputation that the Provincial Government had, by the aot of
last session, taken Island railway matters out of the hands <' the Dominion
Government, who had no longer any
control over tho lands formerly sit
aside for that purposo. Mr. Boaven
made an awkward attempt to parry lhe
blow, but was, of courso. completely
unsuccessful..

Sabbath Deheckation.—The organ

uf promoting Sabbath desecration,
tells its readeas that tho Columbian's

killing or hunting for game ou a Sunday under a penalty of five pounds and
the costs of conviction recoverable before any Justice of the Peace. Nor is it
from Mud Bay alone that complain-
comes about Sunday shooting. We observe by a recent number of the Colo-

is made on Vancouver Island.
About the Beef.
The drift of Chicago drensod beef lo
Atlantic cities is assuming largo proportions. It appears that cattle shipped from Chicago tn New York loso
from 50 to 75 lbs. each in transit
while dressed beef suil't-ra neither loss
nor deterioration. Catile can ho killed and dressed as economically in Chicago as in $W York. The weekly
conBumptn'ni in Now York is about
12,000. Alleging the minimum saving iu weight'-, it would represent fi00,-
000 lbs. a week, which, at.0 cfs, :i
pound, would amount to $30,'000. It
is quite clear, Uieroforo, that tbo Chicago butchers havo a heavy pull upon
those of New York, and there is overy
probability of the bulk of the trade
falling into thoir hands. What is fcrue
of New York is true of other cities in
this respect, and there is evory prospect of Chicago becoming the great
slaughter-house for the millions inhabiting Atlantic cities. Already has
this great beef current reduced prices
to consumers fully one-third. Prime
Chicago beef is now sold in New York
at the refrigerators as low as six oenis
a pound by the quarter.
Accident and Madden Death,
On Friday last, Mr. John Forsytho,
of Chilliwhack, waa on Iim way to the
field with n team for a load of potatoes.
He was seated on an iuveried pail on
the bottom of the waggon. A sudden
jolt in descending a steep pitch caused
him to fall-from the wagnnj lighting
on the back of his bead and shoulders;
fracturing the spinal column at tiio
base of lhe neck. He was conveyed
home, the body and limbs completely
paralized, but tho mental faculties and
power of speech unimpaired. Dr. L.
It. Mclnnes being telegraphed- for,
went upon Saturday, but medical skill
could do little fm* him, and a fatal issue is regarded as almost inevitable.
Mr. Fursythe is an old resident of
Chilliwhnck null highly respected by
all who know bim, and tho deepest
sympathy is felt for him and his
family.
A very sudden death occurred at
Langley on Saturday last. Mr. William Grose, a much respected settler,
had been feeling not very well for
some time. On Saturday morning he
complained of feeling worse and ex**
pired suddenly while sitting in liis
chair. Deceased was highly esteemed
and his sudden death has cast a gloom
over the community. Tho deejiesr*.
sympathy is folt for tho bereaved
family.
Civilizing Hie Indians.
Commissioner Prico, of iho Indian
Bureau of the United States, has made
his roport foi* the fiscal yoar ending
June 30,138.1 lie recommonds lhe
appropriation of a million dollars for
education, iind deprecates the system
uf cash annuities. The Commissioner
comments in very severe terms upon
the iniquity of the liquor tratlie among
the Indiana, aud recommends greater
stringency in enforcing IhoiiiWs oil
the subject. In this respect the conditions are very similar in British Columbia. The quantity of liquor supplied to tho Indians in this country fo
siniply. enormous, and the demoralizing
and decimating effects nmtthgst ihu
wretched creatures ia deplorable. The
law is iu many places practically inoperative, partly owing to the difficulty
of obtaining convictions. Tho unsupported evidence of the Indian tn whom
drink is supplied is insufficient, and
cunning middlemen buy liquor from
the licensed vendor and,' as a rule,
tako care to dispose of it to the red
man or woman under circumstances
rendering conviction difficult, if not
impossible, and thus tho work of crime
and death goes ou. Besides, to the
class of persons usually employed in
this illicit trade Iho punishment inflicted has but lilllo terror. Flogging
would prove a much more potent deterrent; nnd Hogging would not be too
drastic a remedy after thu iir.it offense.
A Mail Gbieva1?ob.—Ctf late wo
have not had much occasion to complain about the Unnecessary delay of
mainland mail matter at Victoria: but
we cannot overlook what happened
last week. Notwithstanding that the
direot mail steamer arrived at Victoria
on Thursday, the mainland mail matter was not forwarded till Sunday 1
Unquestionably it should hnve come
by Friday's steamer, and so that which
was for the interior could have gone
to Yale on Saturday. As it is,' tlie
wholo of the dwellers above Yale will
have been just ono week later in receiving their mail than there was,the
slightest occasion for. And .there is
really no excuse for this kind nit thing.
tsr Having lately received large shipments from the Hast, our stock of Hookr','.
Stationery, Fancy Goods, Ac., is now

Terrible ha Final Explosion.
A week ngo In-day, aa Mr. J. T.
Jones aud his sou woro proceeding up
iho waggon road, near the 42-Milo
houso beyond Yale, with their horso
team and a load of black powder for
the railway works, tho powder exploded, blowing the vohicle to atoms, killing one horso, inflicting terrible injury
upon somo of tho others, and, what ia
saddest of nil, seriously wounding the
men. The wonder is lhey were not
kilted outright. The two men wero
met on the road by Mr. Lundbom, of
Nicola Valley, in a fearful plight, with
their clothing tnoally lorn off' and their
persons as black as the ace of Bpades.
They wore making their way, as boat
thoy could, to tho ■•'2-uiiIo house, mid
they intrenled Mr; Ilundbmn lo hurry
lo Boston Bar and telegraph for a doc
tor, wliich ho accordingly did. Dr.
Tunstall soon arrivod from Lytton aud
did all Unit medical skill could do fur
lhe sufferers ; but on Thursday lhe
father succumbed to tho terrible injuries, and little hopes were, according to
Incest accounts, entertained of the recovery of the son. Mr, Jones will bo
remembered in Victoria aa having
taught the Collegiate School there for
some years,* and in the upper country
ns having been for some lime in charge
of the boarding scluol at Cache Creel',
and subsequently keeping the Bonaparte House at that place. About four
years ago he removed to a farm at
Grand Prairie, beyond Kamloops. The
cause of tho explosion is a profound
mystery. At the time it occurred tho
son was riding Iho nigh loader aud the
father was walking close behind the
waggon. Tho occasion of this terrible
catastrophe will be au interesting nnd
important problem for those more directly concerned iu handling and moving black powder, which has hitherto
not been considered as involving much
risk in that way. It will ,bo an interesting problem alrio to persons having
occasion to travel on steamers carrying large quantities of litis explosive.,
It is in the general interest that a rigid
investigalffin should bu made wiih a
view to discovering, if possible, lhe
e>(f8e*of tliis explosion.•

Contempt nnd Cave.
Tho local organ asserts that the
Armstrong contempt of Court and lhe
graving dook "cave'1 aro "pure Gotion."
It would', indeed, bo a convenient
thing if the Government could, by I he
mere denial of its orgap, be extricated
from the double dilemma. In regard
to the contempt caso, we simply re-
luted facta aa they came to us through
a reliable channel, uud' thero will
doubtless be ..developments iu Die
courso of a few days fiilly sustaining
these facts,—unless, indeed the Court
should relent, which isn't at all likely
under tiio oirc'uinstances. And as for
tile ''cave*' in the dock, wo now find
tliat, instead of having exaggerated,
our slateiupnt wus within llio marl;.
It appeal's limit not only did the large
body of -earth fall it), but iho wall
forming Iho face iigMnH which tlie
concrete work must go, lias boon seriously injured, so thnt either groat expense must be iucuhml in obtaining
renewed solidify or else llio structure
will be very faulty iit that point. And
iu addition to ail thai, we learn that
great rents have made Ilioir appearance in tbo remaining [lorLiona of ihe
wall, indicating fart hor "caves." Indeed, there is no saying whore the
disaster will end. The Victoria organ
admits lliu "cave," but blames the
elements fur it. Even if that were so,
—if it could be proved tliat. proper'u;
gijteoring and foresight had been exercised, still the fact would remain that
the expense involved would not havo
fallen upon the Province hud not the
Govornment foolishly lal.en Lhe work
into their own hands. But we havo
excellent engineering authority for
saying that tlio cause of tlie disaster
has been the foolish ami most unjustifiable piling of a largo body of earth
excavated from the dock upon a bank
not having the proper slope neco3Siiry
lo sustain even itself. It is idle, it is
worse than idle, to blame upon tin
elements tho natural cims^quences "f
the disgraceful bungling and lamentable incapacity whioli havo clwracter-
i/,ed Mr. Heaven's attempts at dock-
biiilding; Duriny last session Mr.
Walkem said, iu extenuation of the
blunders up to that lime, "Pnfortu-
nately I know no more about dock-
building than I do about surgorv."
Mr. Beaven might well make a similar
admission.

Travelling by rail ia not anything
liko so risky a business aa most people
imagine. An article iu the Nov'h
Amerkdii Review states that the rail-*
ways every year carry 375,000,000 passengers, of whom but 1,800 meet with
injuries and 4G0 aro killed. In other
words, ti railway traveller's chances of
being killed are about one tn eight
hundred thousand, At-this rate, a
railway train would seem to bo ono of
Ihe safest places in the world to live in.
Fif.'y years ago there wore more persons kiilud each year in Massachusetts
by accidents to stage coaches thnn
thero ftre no\v by rail[ways, notwithstanding the increase in travel; and the
samo is probably true elsewhere. It
might be added that the groat advances
constantly making in railway improvements of all kinds render the risk of
accident a daily diminishing quantity.

Caution.
Wo bog to call tho attention of the
trade and the public to the .well-known
quality und clegauce (if- finish of our
Hold Cases, guaranteed by us to be of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Gold, na may be
stumped, nnd nlso to our mode of selling
the same, charging qnly for tho. Actual-
Wkiuiit of the, gold used, nnd not for
the baso metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc. To illustrate
whieh a tug accompanies each one of out-
Gold Cases, whieh plainly indicates not
only the gross weight of tlio case, but
nlso tho Net Weight of the gold.
In explanation of the above we desire
to any that tlio old plan of charging for
tho gross weight of the case, ns if it wero
all gold, worked well enough as long an
tho manufacturers were content with the
amount of brass and st'ecl actually re
quired "in its coiistrucfioii; but when tho
business .wne degraded .into a contest as
to who ahould get the most baso metal
into the least quantity, of gold nnd call it
a Gold case, then the timo came when,
in the interest of dealers in Amorican
W&tclies, it became necessary to adopt a
plan of selling, showing the buyer exactly how much Gold each caso contained.
To avoid imposition, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe that efcry
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
hears our trade murk on both caso and
movement. Gold cases are stamped "A.
W-Co.j" and guarantee cortiticatcs accompany them. Silver cases nro stamped
"A. AI. Watch Co., Wnlthnm, Mass.,
sterling silver," and aro accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed R. E. Rob-
bins,, treasurer. The name "Waltham"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our cases
are frequently separated from our movements, nnd piit upon worthless movements of other makers nnd t'jee ire*"",
thus affecting injuriously the performance of the wateiies, and vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete"'Matches wholly mnde
by us. it, is necessary also, because it is
ao notorious as to ho a public scandal
that thero is grcnt fraud in tho metal
quality of both gold and silver cases aa
now generally sold. We havo demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold ami silver cases offered in the market uro debased from 10 to '':• per cent,

CHAPTER Aa
THE FK9T SIGHT'0* HElt.
(Continued 0
Time passed till it was now full four
years since Ronald nnd Muriel had
met, and he wondered what she would
be like, picturing to himself a somewhat pensive face with serious eyes,
such, as he hod been used to watch
when she said her lesson at his mother's knee.
Winter spori.8 were in full swing1
when lie went home to the manse- for
a brief vacation. The country had been
long frosi-bound—'sn-jw powdered the
Ochillis, and clothed the Grampians
from head to foot.; frees and rocl.*s
stood out blackly from the, universal
misty-gray, and the still air rung wi.h
the metry shouts of curlers and ihe
far-heard hum of their stones. Stating, too, bad begun to be the fashion,
and the players of the tearing game
were no longer allowod to monopolize
-all tbe good ice in the country. Airth-
-rey Loch, in particular, was a favorite
■resort; winding as it did for a considerable distance between grassy batiks,
•it was especially suited for skaters, and
•was beautiful besides.
Thither Ronald was repairing the
morning after his arrival, skates in
hand, and.as he tramped along he
whistled cheerily. The keen air inspired him, and the sun shone brilliantly oh the frosiy earth, and liis
mother had told him that a party from
the Hall wsnt almost daily to tho loch.
When he hed gone about half-way,
the Jnverallan wagonette passed him,
full of ladies and gentlomen muffled
up in furs. Ono of the former turned
her head, and, catching si,^ht of him,
nodded in a friendly way. He could
not see her face, but his heart beat as
he hastened on* impatient ai his own
■low progress, though he was doing
near tive miles an hour.
How graceful she looked! he could
see that, though a veil hid her features;
how pretty that black liat was! and
there wns something crimson round
her throat* the'llurs, too, looked so
rich and warm—iho whole efc'eot was
-so pleasantly luxurious! how would
•Bhe behave to him at the loch- aod
who were those men in the carriage ?
Dandy Londoners, no doubt, thought
Konald, jealously.
Not that lie had as yet aaid io himself distinctly tbat he admired or cared
for Muriel Forbes; his thought was
only of liking, of old times, of home
associations; yet thnt thought was but
coyly awaiting the touch, the glance,
-ihe moment's impulse, ihat should
transfigure it, turning lil;«og to lovo.
Arriving at the water-side, he fastened on his skates, and darted hither
and thither iu search of ihe party from
the Hall. The ice was crowded, and
people naturally divided themsolves
into groups, according to their capabilities and tastes.
At one end curling was in full swhlg.
and round the rinks stood numerous
spectators. Here a troop of boys were
sliding, while near t'.iem inexperienced
-skaters made their first essays, each
hoping that his or her clumsiness
mfcht be unnoticed in the crowd. It
'was a vain hope* for if now and again
a luckless tyro met with a fall, he was
pretty sure to hear a mocking crv of
*'8oop him upl soop him up! - or
"Crack an egg upon him!" fro n the
laddies on the slide.
Here and there, keeping nour tlio
edge, was some solitary performer who
shrunk from the general fun; and he-
youd these again, where the loch
■curves suddenly, was a broad e,pause
of ice, on which the more skilful were
-enjoying and exhibiting their powers.
Among these Ronald soon espied the
ladies from the Hall: and lie shot
away down the slide, so as io turn and
face them on his way back. He would
not speak, he thought, till he saw what
greeting Muriel would bestow.
Be was not long kept in doubt, for
she no sooner saw him thnn she moved
toward him suaicienUy .'o oblige him
io come up to her.
"I am so glad to see you, Ronald,"
she said cordially. "Isn't this a lovely day ? and the ice is perfect. Come
nnd let me introduce you to my
friends, and we'll *;o down the loch to
ihe far end."
For an instant Ronald wan almost
too much bewildered to reply. Was
it possiblo ihnt the little child he remembered could be this dazzling girl ?
Her eyes were sparkling, her color
heightened, the expression of her fnce
was bewitching, with its happy blend
ing of innocence and fun, She looked
the picture of health aud joy; and
Ronald turned, with a now, Buddan
sense of delight, and followed hor to
the spot where three or four ladies and
gentlemen wero gliding slowly about,
evidently waiting for their hostess.
From the opposite side another gentleman just then joined the group, and
was received by Muriel with less cordiality than she had evinced lo her old
friend. The new-comer was short and
■tout, with a heavy face and small
eyes; and uot being thoroughly at
home on his skates, ho bowed somewhat awkwardly as Muriel began a general introduction.
' Mary, ; his ia my old friend Mr.
Bennett. Miss Gordon, Mr. Hardwicke,
Miss Leslie, Mr. Benuet. There! it is
very difficult to introduce you all when
none of you stand still for two seconds.
Now let us go right down the loch;"
and away she sped, followed by the
rest of the party.
To Ronald's surprise, Miss Leslie
began to talk to him with apparent in-
tersst, and an evident desire to monopolize his society. Sho was by turns
amusing nnd sarcastic, aud launched
into the gossip of a world unknown to
Ronald, and quite unlike thnt of Edinburgh drawing-rooms.
A puzzled look crossed her faco when
he more than once confessed that he
■was unacquainted with the poople she
mentioned; and at last, annoyed at hia
own ignorance, wenried of her talk,
and impatient at his detention from
Muriel's sido, he uttered some vnguo
excuse and glided away.
But he was not to exchange mnny
word* with Muriel, for one of the gentlemen, whose name ho had not
caught, kept persistently near her, and
there ensued a mute rivalry on Ron-
aid's part, in whioh he waa speedily
forced to confess himself beaten. Bo
skated fairly well, and had had some
dim notion that ho could outdo the
dandies, as he scornfully termed the
other young men; and certainly the
heavy-faced youth was soon distanced
and loft to his fate, in tho shape of
Miss Leslie.
Muriel's companion was of a different type. His general appearance was
precisely of iho kind to irritate a lad
like Ronald, conscious of his own deficiencies, and jealous of the very eaae
with which the other man enjoyed the
position he himself coveted; but he
was no mere idler, at least as far as
physical activity was concerned, and
Ronald soon folt that while he was exerting himself to his utmost, this rival,
with his perfect skates, was moving as
easily as though he wero walking across
a room. The girl, now skating be! ween
them, now holding back while they
enjoyed the luxury'of outside odge or
tried some moro difficult ligure, may
liavo understood something of Ronald's
thoughts: perhaps she wished to givo
him a lesson, or perhaps it was out of
mere fan that sho turned to hor companion and begged liim to show her
some of Lhe figures he had learned in
Canada,
Without demur the young man complied, and Ronnld's honesty forced
him io applaud ihe skilled ;;race of ihe
performance, after wliich Muriel spoke
io him with all hur former kindness.
Together they reached the bank
when ihe short afternoon was begin-
niu io close in, and the first thrill of
envy darted through Ronald as he lingered foolishly and watched Captain
Leslie—ihis was the skater's name—
removing .he skate* from Muriel's
dainty feet.
She, meanwhile, was momentarily
nerple;od: it seemed ungracious to bid
Ronald good-bye, and leave him io
follow on foo,., when she must drive
past his very door; but the only vacant
place in the carriage wai on the bor.,
iho gentleman who had filled it not intending io return. Could she, should
she, offer it to Ronald ? He looked-ns
if ho wero more touchy than ever;
would he think that she wns slighting
him if Bhe plnced him in the servants'
soat 1
Something of her doubt was hi hor
tone as sho spoke. "Couldn't we take
you home, Ronald? Let me see: Mr.
Humphreys is not coming back—he
was on the bo-.."
"I will take ihe boseai, Miss
Forbes, if you will allow me, and Mr.
Bennott can have my placo; I shall be
glad of a smoke," said Captain Leslie,
with ready \ne\-, ashe wou'.id iho straps
round the skates.
Ronald wondered why Muriel thanked him wiih so bright a glance, and
did not fail -o observe tho look of
pleasure* with which Leslie turned
nway; but he took his sent happily
enough iu ihe wagonet-ttJ, nnd talked
of he know not what and lio knew not
how, his whole soul so absorbed in
winching the beautiful face opposite io
him ihat the conversation made no
more impression on him than if it had
beon the talk of a dream. She gavo
him her hand as sho said good-flight,
and ho hardly dared to touch it, but
got down, and stood at the liitle garden-gal o till the flash from the carriage-lamps and the white steam of the
horses' breath had vanished at a turn
of the road.
Then he went in, with a strange,
daz;:Ied look in his eyes, nnd replied
vaguely to his mol tier's ouesiions, till
she gazed at him over her Bpectaclcs
and asked him sharply what ailed him,
that ho should talk like a man iu his
sleep ?
At that he shook himself, ns though
in reali'y but newly awakened, and
met his mother's eyes kindly, and iold
her thnt hu had had a pleasant day.
Muriel's impressions of tho afternoon were given in iho few precious
minutes' talk which she invariably had
with her father before dinner.
"Well, my pet, have you enjoyed
yourself V said he.
"Yes, papa; and Ronald was there,
nnd I brought him home in the carriage. Aunt Alicia was angry; but ho
had beon wiih us. and I could not say
good-byo io him and leave liim to
walk when wo woro going the same
way."
'*No, of course no: whal do you
think of him?"
"Oh, he's just his old self, papa.
It was such fun! I had to introduce
them all when they were moving about
round me, a»d Mary Leslie mado such
a mistake —sho took Ronald for—
you would never guess—Mr. Hard-
wicket"
"And was sho vory cordial to him,
■.hen?"
',Yes; I could not make it out till I
henrd hor talking to him about people
in London, and then I saw what sho
had done."
"And did you enlighten her?"
"No, papa," replied Muriol, demurely; "I could not resist leaving
her to find it out. It wns bo funny to
see her talking to Runald, and fancying he was the rich Mr. Hardwicke;
she never would have tolerated such a
coat as he wears o:;cept for that idea.
Poor dear Ronald, I wish he looked
nicer; don't you, papa?'1
"He looks vory nice among hia own
people, my dear," said Sir Duncan;
but his daughter laughed n-nl kissed
hiin.
"Oh, pnpa. lhat was said just like
Aunt Alicia: but I like your own way
of speaking ever so much better, you
know;" and so Baying tho girl left tho
room.
It will bo seen from the above conversation that if Ronald was still a
subject of consideration to tho elders
at the Hall, Muriel herself was perfectly frank and at her enso concerning
him: and, as hor father reflected, she
would not have audibly criticised his
appearance had she cured at all how
he looked.
Miss Forbes* schemes hnd. in fnct,
turned nut exactly ns she wished, and
hnd not dono the harm that might
have buen expected.
