Far From Right.
Dallas street   presents the solo
means of communication for teams
between  tho  business  part of the
city und the" mills ut the lower end.
From Ferris to Richard street, a distance of about sixteen chains, Dallas
street is in ii  very bad condition.
During the wet aeasons it becomes
practically impassable, so  that communication bdtwce'n the city and tho
mills, excepting by tho plank footway, is  virtually suspended.    Practical men assure  us  that  the comparatively  trifling sum of two or
at most three hundred dollara would
suflico to place that piece of street
in  fairly good condition;   but  the
Council appear determined to leave
it tis it is, while muoh \b\mv sums
nre being frittered away upon woi'f'y,
to   say tlui   least,  possessing  very
little   public   utility.    Ill-natured
1 jieonlo go further nnd  boldly assert
that much of the civic expenditure
is being made with special reference
to tho convenience   and  pecuniary
advantage of some, of the Councillors
themselves !    De thnt as it mny, we
feel called upon to point out the impolicy and  injustice of   negleoting
the sole nvemto of communication
between the city and the two mills
us well as the ship-yard at tho lower
end.   There is a vory largo amount
, of trntlic over (he rond in question,
or rather, there would be if it were
passable, and if Uio road is allowed
to fall into such  a  condition as to
louder it impossible fur a team  to
haul u full loud, it is clear that just
in proportion   will  an obstacle bo
placed  in the way of  building and
other improvements requiring lumber or articles manufactured  from
lumber at these  mil).*!.    When  the
road  becomes   impassable  building
operations come to a stand.   There
never was a period in the history of
Uio city when it was mqre important that building should  be encour-
Iged iu cvocy legitimate way. There
Is not a houso  empty, and  whole
amities are  unable lo (ind bouse-
ooiii.   And yet with 'tliis condition
■f affairs staring  thom in the face,
bo Council  appear determined to
How that piece of road to become
bsoluteiy  impassable,   ns  it most
bi'tainiy 'will  become  with  a fow
'celts' rain, when an expenditure of
ne-ha!f the amount uijcoustttlltion-
lly devoted to uib.'o decorations of
day would  nu3lco  to avert such a
- wo   wero going    to  say,  public
Jaunty!   But-   thine   is another

lould bo   regarded,    Wo contend

ch an industry as that at the lower
id of this city ate entitled to some

Later, when Judith and Rhoda again
happened to be alone, tho la.tor said:
'yllr. Daucsdole baa been abroiiq fur
ever su lung with -Mi*. Aglionby.'!
"Has he ?"
"Yos; they aro most trmnendous
friends. People call them Orbstw and
Pylades. Whenever Mr. Aglionby ia
at lioiito, Mi*. "P.anesu'ule is with linn,
or lie is with Mr. Danestlalo. iiut our
cousin doesn't spend much of his time
at Scar Foot. Jio'a there jest now
though, and nobody says anytljing
about liis getting married. Hfo sunt
lives with him and keeps house .for
him, and some peoplo seem to ttko
him. Tho 'Mallosons do. I've seen
linn there once or twice, and he fo
fearfully ijruve and dignified. I can't
hate the man, though 1 should like
to."
Judith was saved from the necessity
of ;i reply by tho entrance of Bslphino.
She pondered upon all she had heard,
and in her mind tho situation resolved
itself into this, that her mother would
not live lung, tier eye, now practised
in rflading the siijus of most, kinds of
disease, beheld the beginning of the
ond, written very plainly in Mra. Conisbrough's appearance and o:*.prsasii*n.

It was a Mule more than a 'veolf
afier Judith Goniabr'pufrh'fi return, a
Buliry lifi;eru6on at the end of July.
At Scar Fei't all wns quiet, e/ccopt the
ttioks which wheeled uud, cawed noisily

with tiie blinds down, to keep the said
nun out. iu lhe dining-room thu
lunciietui-iaMe was spread, with A}-
lionby and Mra. Hryce at the head and
foot of it, and Randulf, as (-most, at
one side.
The meal was just over, as Aglionby
observed:
"Vou look tired, aunt.   Is it tho
"matt"
"I suppoao st), I thinli it is going
ioihuudor, I generally know by. my
nerves when it is, ami they prognosticate 11 storm now,"

wiih the air of ono who haa made an
interesting discovory, ''Site saya she
always l.imv.s when there's goiug to bo
a thunder-storm."
"Vou don't look too.brilliant yourself, ileriiard," observed Mrs. Bryce,
laughing, "poes lit, Mr. Danesdalo I"
"IT—no. A bit thundery (like the
weather), an usual, when ho doosu't
get enough of Ilia own way. 1 should
lake no notice of him; he'll come
round."
"Who would not, afier hearing sueh In point of I
soothing comments passed upon his
looks and tho causes uf thom/" said
■Aglionby, who had heen looking, as a
nmtier of fact, pale, but darkly, hand-
some, as usual, but aorosa whose
gravity there now (lashed a smilo,
trau* form ing his whole face, lie pushed his chair away as ho spoke, nnd
op-jned tho door for Mrs. Bryce, say*
big:
"J really would go and rest, aunt, if
I were yon; or you'll be having one of
your headiiclioa."
"I think I shall," saiil Mra. Dryce,
going away.
"Whore shall wo ft-o ?" aaid Aglionby lo his friend, "for I'm nt your dis*
po'tai this afternoon."
"Wherever it's coolest, and wherever it. takes tho least exertion to got
to," was the characteristic reply,
"That'-i my den, then, across the
house-place,'' said Bernard) leading
the way, *
Itandulf Hung himself at full length
on a settee, and began, with the usual
promptitude of action whieh contrasted so oddly with his drawling speech.
"Cim you guess what it is I want to
have over with you '"
"I suppose you are really thinking
of getting married?"
"Yea, move's the bad luck, I am,
1 Want you to givo 1110 some advice
as to 11 suitable lady.''
"Me—-jurelyyou know host your-
flelf."
"Not I! My father ia anything hut
well, you know, su lie wasn't so'rry for
tlie excuse to leavo town, and I don't
Lhjnk Philippa minded much. She lias
got a fancy that ho is really failing,
and I can see (hat. ho in just miserable
till 1 decide upon something. He lias
saeriticutl an awful lot for me; it is
right that I should sacriflco something
for him, so I told him I was willing (0
oblige him."
"You told me at tho time" (they
both Beamed to know what this rather
vague expression meant) "that" e had
told you to wait fivo years if you liked,
but that yuu should do nothing of iho

Short HonrsaiHl nose Sundays,
It has been authoritatively assort*
od that during at leant threo days; iu
tho week tho merchants and traders
of tliis oity can do all their lmsni'esa
in twelve hours just us well'us in
sixteen. If such be the c.uie, aud wo
believe it cannot be successfully controverted, it goes without saying
that it is their true interest and wisdom to snatch these Hour hours from
business treadmill monotony and do-
vote them to licalthful exercise or
recreation, useful study or social en-
' joyment around the domestic heat th.
"AM work and no play makes JVck
a dull boy." This nnremitttpg brain
toil saps the issues of life, a\)d unfits
both Jack and his master for the
true enjoyment and amenities of
life. Mental and physical test and
recreation are essential to health and
well-being. Every right-thinking
person in this community will,
therefore, countenance and support
the movement having for its object
tho shortening of business hours during three days in the week. But it
is something more than the mere
tacit moral support of the "customer"
that is necessary. If through the
thoughtlessness" of even a few, obstructions to the prompt closing of
establishments are created, weak-
kneed traders may bo tempted to
return to old habits, ami so the arrangement fall through. Let "customers" mako a point of strength oiling tho hands of the traders ami
their assistants by doing their shopping in propor horns and liy d's-
counteuancing a disposition on tho
part of any trader to infringe the
spirit of the pact. The ladies, more
than any other, can help forward
this early-closing movement. Indeed
they hold the matter in their own
hands. But there is another evil
with wliich tho Early Closing Association will most likely conceive it
to be their duty to deal. We allude
to tho practice of trading on Sunday.
It appears that one or two of our
city tradurs are in the habit of doing
business on the Sabbath. Now, leaving altogether out of view tbe moral
wrong, it can be seen at a glance
how unfair to the bono; able, law-
abiding trader such a practice i.-i.
Is it not tailing a mean advantage,
so to sneak, of the j^'teat bulk of the
traders who havo too much rega-d
for the laws of God and man. who
value too highly the physical advantages of a day oi * est ■■■ . i' y
of .such a thing I Thi i'li
should bo stopped, a/. \vi
stand tho Early Cloning Association
will make ifc their business to see
that it is stopped.

it not follow that all who have been

If the gtound taken by Mr. "Colo iu

a vovy unenviable position. If it is
nothing moro than a piece o[
"bouneo" it cun hurt no one. Tbe

History Repeating Itscir,
Upon the occasion of Lord Dufferin'.-; entry into Victoria some six
years ago, certain extremists, erected
au arch on Eovt street, upon winch
objectionable and foolish mottoes
wero placed—such as "The Carnarvon Terms or Separation," thus conveying a disloyal threat. Very properly, as we think, the procession
was changed at that point in o'tier
that tlio Governor-Cionernl might not
pass under the "rehoi arch," as it
was designated. Tliis wan done with
tho knowledge and concurrence (,f
Lord Dufferin, and resulted in nothing moro serious than a little blufitor
aiid a slight interruption to the progress of tho procession hy fiery spi* ita
who swore that tbey would compel
the procession to pass under the ob*
jectionablo arch. It would seem ns
if Victoria is to have anothor arch
scandal. At the Reception Com
mittee meeting held on Friday evoning Mr. Buuster is reported ns follows:—*
"i\Ir. Bunster wishftd to know ffhat
uuthorixntiou tho Obineso had for
erect ing an arch on Store street-, .and
lio wan informed that they hud o'olaiu-
ed permission from thu committee in
duo Form. Ifo then denounced the
notion of the committee and stated
that on ho hiiti considerable to do with
bringing tho Gdvernor*Gensml nud
the I'rincuss liOttinu out to thin pro*
vince, he should exercise Ins influence
to prevent tho vibe-regal party from
passing under the arch in question."
Tho Obincso constitute no inconsiderable portion of the population
of Victoria, and it is not ensy to see
why these people should be delmrrnd
from joining in decorations intended
to bo complimentary to tho iHusM*
ous visitors. Upon tho occasion of
Lord Dullcrin's  visit  tho Chinese

To avoid hnposition, pitfeh.viuM't .Wjl-
tliani \Vafiihes will pbgcrvu that every
genuine watch, wftatfibr gold or silver,
bears our trade mark on both case and
movement, Gobi cases are stamped "A.
W. Co.;" and guarantee certificates ne-
coiupiiiiy them. Silver cases aro stamped
"A. M. Watch Co., Waltliam, Mass,,
sterling silver," and are accompanied by
giulrantee certificates, signed It. K. Rob-
bins, treasurer. The nmne "Waltham"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
Irrespective of cither distinguishing
marks. This caution {^rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our eases
lire frequently separated from our movements, aiul put upon worth less movements of other milkers and vice verm,
thus affecting injurionuly the performance of tho watches, and vitiating our
guarantee*; which is intended to cover
only our eoinplete watches wholly made
by us. *It fo necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to be a public scandal
that there is great fraud iu the metal
quality oi both gold and silver cases as
now generally sold. We have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
geld and silver coses offered iu the market fire debased fiom 10 to 20 pur cent,
from the quality they assume to be.
This is a fraud upon the.purchaser, and
accounts for the low price at which such
cased witches havo been sold.—Amkhi-

"Ah! I funciod my powers of getting over troubles wero greater tlian
they turn out to bo. To make a clean
breast of it, I care for that girl ns much
■to-day as I did tho day sho refused
me—ay, and ten times more, I never
-shall caro for another girl. My father
says I talk cynically. Philippa, poor
lass! turns her eyes toward heaven,
and says she Winders how I can"—he
laughed. "She knows nothing about
it. I am going to do it, but I'll never
utter ono word of pretense in the whole
matter; I won't have Move'so mueh as
mentioned. Therefore*, my dear fellow, think of money, beauty, rank,
cleverness, discretion, dignity, suitability, as much as you pleaso; but for
God'B sake don't ask me to marry any
girl whom I should have to pretend to
caro for, or who ivould pretend to caro
for ine. '"
"You talk as if I could lay my finger
on tho proper person at a moment's
notice."
'"So you can, if you choose."
"It's plain to see, from that, that
you know perfectly well who is to be
the victim of yoltr despair, or the accomplice of your heartless project—
whichever you liko to call it. You
mean Miss Askham, I suppose ?"
"Well, the in well known to be the
most heartless, ambitious, worldly,
•self-seeking little monkey in tho North
Ming,"
"So I believe."
"I thought of hor instantly.   But I
had a scruple.'1
"What was that ?*'
""Somo one told 1110 tliat you admired her."
"Il Good Lord! Sot your mind at
rest, I beg; and if my services can bo
of the least help to you in the matter,
command them, But I would like lo
give you a word of advice."
"Well?"
"You would do better to look for
some one else. I know that Dorothy
Askhain appears to be exactly what
you have said. I don't believe she
knows- she has gut a heart, but I also
Relieve, that if you made lovo to her,
she would find it out, and that very
soon."
"Then she won't do. I must have
somo one to whom I shall not have to
pretend even to make lovo. Make
love!" ho added bitterly. "Slake tovef
after seeing her last Sunday, and her
drooping looks! I know thia—I must
not soe her again if I can help boforo
it's all over, or I shall funk it at the
very last. It's hideous--hideous! I've
often heard of girls selling themselves,
and seen them do it, too, with smiling
faces, and take any amount of spooning
from fellows whom they may almost
loathe; but I never knew what it must
feel like till now."
"Poor innocent victim! Poor unsheltered lamb!" wns tho soothing reply.
"•"Ah, your sympathy was always of
tlie robust kind," grumbled Itandulf.
"A stroke en the back with one hand,
and a cut of the whip from the other."
"If you drop the whip for long in
commiserating either your friend's
grief or your own, you find yourself
wreathed with weeping willow beforo
long, and blown out with sentimental
sighs," retorted Aglionby.
"Well, will you think it over, and
let me have tho result of your meditation?"
"I will."
"Do you ever see anything of Miss
Vane 'that was,' as they say, now ?''
"I havo seen her more than unco
since her marriage, and her husband
says that sometimes she tells him what
prospects she gave up for his sake. I
Ko over and seo them when I want to
be reminded that once upon ti time I
was made a great fool of, all tho time
that I thought myself u person of the
greatest penetration."
A pause ensued, which was broken
by the entrance of the servant with a
. note for Aglionby.
"The messenger is waiting for an
answer, sir."
He read it through—it was very
short—got up, and, without making
the slightest observation, scribbled off
un answer as short as the note, gave it
lo the servant, and said:
"Tell William I want Egyptian—ho
must saddle him at once."
"Are you mad V murmured Randulf. "To ride—on ah afternoon like
this."
"It's a summons," said Aglionby,
"which may mean a great deal, or perhaps nothing at all. Hark to mu, Itandulf.  Establish yourself for the night.
I can't toll when I may return, but it
will bo some timo to-night, and I may
have some news for you."
"News—about what''''
"Don't prees me! It ia but a chance.
But stay—to oblige me, old follow.
And, for heaven's sake, don't write
and propose to Miss Askham, or Miss
Anyone, whilo I am out."
Randulf shrugged his shoulders.
"Woll, to please you. And what am
I to say to Mrs. Bryce 1
"That I was (Jailed o'T on business,
and will be back to-night,"
When Egyptian wns announced as
* being ready, Randulf Danesdalo, despite the heat, followed hia friend into
the yard, and stood hare-headed while
lie mounted, followed him to the Rate,
and leaned upon it long, watching
while Aglionby rode out in the blazing
sun, along the road to Yoresett.
"Perhaps the riddle is going to be
solved at lost," he i.aij to himsolf, us
he returned tn tho house.
Aglionby rode swiftly under the
scorching sun, along tho high, wild
road to Yoresett, He wont up the village street and dismounted at the inn,
where it was customary for the visitors
of ftU degrocs to leavo thoir homos
while they transacted their business in
the town, and thon he walked down
the street again to Vorcsott Houso,
pulled tho bell, and asked to see Mrs.
Oonisbrough.
Tho servant seemed to understand
that-lio was expected, for sho said
"Yes," with some alacrity, and aflmtl ted
him at onco, ushorlng him into tlio
parlor at the left hand of tho hall—
the ono room of that house which ho
had evor been in. The light of it was
aomewhat dim after tho blaze of sun-
shine outside, for the blinds wero half
down, and Bernard, as ho entered and
looked around him, appeared very tall
and pale, and rather gaunt, us ho had
grown to look of lato. He had deluded
himself lately into the idea tliat he was
"getting over" his disappointment Riir -■■_ ft, p^
about Judith, and that he was bocom- coivBd direct from th
ing reconciled to tho position to which Ontario a heavy invoici
the had relegated hiin; but ho W|, Including Utter-prcsuc
mistaken, as this afternoon and its occurrences had mado him feel. The
more kuowledge that Judith was at
home, that be might meo4 and soo hev,
had excited him; he could haveochoed
with regard to hor all that Randulf
had said about Delpliino. Then Mrs/
CoiiisbroughVi note coming had made
the emotion deeper, ami, as it-wore,
given a signilicanco to their conversation.
Ho found Mrs, Conisbrough alono,
and he was shocked to see what an invalid, what a wreck sho had become,
Shu leaned back ill her chair, with a
white, fleecy shawl round hor shoulders, and clone beside a small fire,
oven on this Gory Julvftfternoon. Her
cheeks were wasted; her eyes were
hollow. He had not Judith's practical experience to go upon, but he instinctively folt that he was in tlio
presence of one whoso feot were hastening to her grave; whoso spirit must
noon say farewell to thin life; to its
griefs and joys, and hopes and fears.
Klia looked at h union*/ and steadily,
and in silence. There waa au expression upon her fnue whicli he did not
quite understand-—a look of coldness,
of something liko defiance. Ho laid
down his hat, bent over hor, and Baid:
"You sent for ine, Mrs. Oonisbrough."
"Yes. I happen tobo quite alone
to-day, and as I felt a little stronger
and wished to speak to yon, I sent for
you. I hopol have not inconvenienced
you."
"Your summons would have been
obeyed at whatever inconvenicuco,
but, as it happens, it caused mo none
at till."
"Pray be seated, Mv. Aglionby. We
have not seen much of you since my
uncle's death. It is long sinco 1 oven
saw y'ou. 1 have been ;i grout invalid
of late, and have n 'i loft iny house for
many months."
"1 heard you had been in ill I
and wus sorry to learn it.  I hopo tl ore

"Not uneasiness," she replied, with
a peculiar smile, which chilled him, hu
knew not why. "Oh, no! 1 havo n thing—it i'i  long •situ.': 1 hi i.    ■;

staying at tha Malic-sum', and '>■ have

"They must  be, indeed,"ho^naid
gravely.    "I hope "
"Oh, he told them what I could have
