The Syndicate Loan.
•}^ All tho eastern Canadian news-
I papers ure full of 0. P. R. matters.
I The party journals,, like the political
\ representatives in parliament, take
p   sidei nccording to the stiijio they
/wenri The question of granting
■; additional aid to the syndicate has
\ descended from a great national
j question to a party fight, as usual.
)  We take from the Scottish-Americun
■ Journal, pf New York, the follow-
■ ing article. It has the merit, at
1 least, of being disinterested, nml
[   comes from it journal  which  hits
always taken much interest in Can-
I adiuti affairs: — "Many doubtless
i think that the present Canadian
i government feel i> ttifle too certain
) of the continuity of tlieir official
{ life, when thoy have tha boldness
i to submit for the approval of parliament such an agreement as that
(which they now propose entering
into with the Canadian Pacific Rnil-
I way. It appears to have excited
} widespread surprise and indignation
' throughout the wholo Dominion,
| nnd we do not wouder at it. When
' the home government, in the intor-
, est   of commerce, and   to secure a
■ shorter highway to India, invested
| a comparative trifle to ensure the
| completion of tho Suez Canal, what
' an outcry it raised throughout Brit-
. ain, And what an embroglio it
I has led Britain into. Probably it
j would have heen better for Britain
( had that canal never beon com-
/ pletetl, uud tttat her ships should
f lmvo continued to go round the Cape
•for ages, than to be now compelled,
j tall through that blessed canal of that
\ Krenchnian, to   practically   assume
Iitlie protectorate of   Egypt.     But
what   was the purchase of  a few
1 shares in that canal iu comparison
■ to what the Canadian government
t\ now propose doing with tiie Pacific
■' railway—or rather with the clique
or syndicate who promoted it, und
. who are now trying either to build
' it or their own fortunes—possibly
; both ? As we formerly pointed out,
' the Canadian government have
j really no interest whatever in tho
{ farther completion of this railroad
at present. So fur as the interest
of tho Dominion is concerned it
i mutters not supposing thero was uot
another yard of the railroad built
ifor twenty years to come. Then
\vthy cannot the company rest for a
'■;few years from farther building, nnd
'•occupy themselves in simply work-
ling what has already beeu constructed! The answer is apparent.
'They aro like the insolf ent merchant
who simply carries on business for
show and for the sake of living nt
his creditors' cost, nnd when stop*
page would mean bankruptcy nud
privation, That is the short and
the long of it; and yet the Canadian
government propose to give this
syndicate thirty million dollars more
to cut, carve, and plunder on. Of
course this proposal is submitted iu
a plausible nud ingenious way; it is
not said to be a gift, but u loan, and
on security of the road and plant-
that is on the fruits of such a proportion of the thirty millions as the
syndicate may think fit to expend
upon construction, after satisfying
their own wants. If the whole
difficulty of the syndicate simply
be thut their shares are not taking
the market, and that in order to
build more of the railway they re
quire farther capital, and had that
additional railway been urgently
required at present and for the good
of Canada, then there might have
been some reason in a proposal by
the Dominion government to invest
even a few million dollars iu the
purehuse of shares, and ut the same
time thereby secure probably a controlling voice in tho management
and disbursements. This, however,
Is not the proposal. The government are simply te become the almost unlimited bunkers of the syndicate and advance nearly thirty
millions of dollars on almost papor
Kites, Whenever the syndicate can
make no mora out of it, and wish
tho white elephunt oil' their hands
altogether they simply fail for a year
to meet an installinnnt, and then it
drops like a thunderbolt upon the
government. From tho Governor-
General's  speech, we thought the
syndicate wished both to keep their
cherry unci cat it—-to retain Ihe
govornmont guarantee of tl)()ir. dividend, and yot to get bade ami me.
the money deposited in yecm-ity oi
or in exchange for that giiiu-aiitai',
But really tliis is only n trilling proportion of their wishes. The seven
nnd a half millions m ile|-.-sited
they must got back at onco t jiay
urgent pressing debts. Wollj if the
government could only givo lite military command of "As you were,"
and withdraw their gimianteo, the
syndicate might get back, their deposit to save them from bankruptcy,
but this they cannot do, and hence
the flagrant injustice of tho proposal, to get back tho deposit-not to
speak of about twenty fivo millions
moro. Many fear that there must
bo some gross mismanagement in
connection with the Canadian Pacijjo
railway, 'it would bo well if the
government before giving any further guarantee, or advancing another
dollar, should Qrsfc have the whole
n(Fairs of tho company overhauled,
nnd ascertain where all the money
already received has gone. Tho
peoplo of the Dominion have n vighl
to demand that the government
should insist upon this. At the
same time th6Vu appears no good
reason why the government should
at the country's expense bolster,up
this private company at oil, Thero
aro not wanting indications that tlie
syndicate nre feeling tli'i; job too hot
in tlieir hands, and that thoy would
rather drop it,"

Drunkenness aiid Crime.
Mr. A. Lang, gaoler of the Barrio
(Ont.) gaol, writes to the Globe na follows'-■-•"JJrBnkennesB is thu sin of our
world. Thirty years ngo ou thoiirafc
day of last December1 took pogssusion
of this gaol. My experience is that
eigliteon-twontiotha of our gaol population during that period found thoir
wny hero through using tho poison
vended by what is now miscalled thu
Liconacd Victuallers Association. To!
talk about building houses for the
drunkards' widows and orphan children sounds like au empty ucho, while
the law licenses men to make the poison, liconses men to sell the poison,
licenses men and women to drink that
poison till they become insane and
commit crime, and then licenses judges
and magistrates to send tliem to prisons or thu gallows. Yes, lirst ninke
men drunkards and ruin thom, and
then tux tho country to build houses
for tho widows and orphans till manufactured by law, and finish up liy employing keepers to oversee thom.
1 remember :t very solemn ease
which occurred hero about nine years
ago. A man in our county was hanged
for killing his wifo. On thu evening
prior to his execution, he asked tlm
privilege of addressing all his follow
prisoners, and fellow drunkards as
woll. This he did by culling ouch one
by his name, and as an earnest dying
man ho urged them never again to
touch the accursed cup which hud beeu
his ruin, and hud brought them to prison. Ho went 011:—"To-morrow morning I must die in the fulness of good
health, and had it not beon whisky 1
would never havo been inside this gaol
a. prisoner." And on that very same
evening the hangman asked mo to lut
him out so that ho could procure a
bottle-full of the licensed victuallers'
cordial to help him through that terrible ordeal. Foi' degraded and brutal-
ised us that hangman was, tlio forty
dollar fee wus insufficient to mako him
kill his fellow-man, but a good draught
of tho licensed viet 11 tillers' punch once
down, he could kill his fellow-eruature,
bound and helpless on his knees before
him. Yes, with a strong hand uud a
steady uoi-ve, like a boast of prey, lm
could finish his terrible job. If ouv
good men who can write so sympathetically for the poor, lost diiinkm-d's
starving child will only set themselves
to work till the next general election,
aud then work on with an unconquor-
ablo will to placo honest, uobor, and
sterling men at the head of tho polls,
instead of the drunken sots who unwilling for the sake of holding ollice to
opon wide the lloodyates of drunkenness and run to our belogpd country!
Why, sir, if it wns possible next
weok to sweep oil' from the face of our
continent the whole of thoso shvains
of liquid death and moral d est ruction,
I would guarantoo that iu twelve
months tho Toronto gaol would hold
ovory prisoner in Ontario, thus doing
away with 3$ gaols and 8 lock-ups,
with a saving to the country of over
one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year in cash. Then add to that
tho amount of prisoners' time saved,-—
it would rise to ten tiinoa that amount
in our own province. And iu throe
years moru there would not bo a pauper ohild in om* country. Every mail
and woman would ho clothed und in
their right mind, and their children
would grow up to (ill respectable positions, instead of finding their wuy into
fnols, reformatories, und penitentiaries,
'hen wo would havo peaco within our
•borders and prosperity within our
walls. We -jo on tho principle of strict
tcetotalism 111 our gaol, and I try to
treat my prisoners us if thuy were human bemgs, the workmanship of Mod's
hand, and tho objects of God's love.

Saturday Horning, Feb. Wt. 1SM-
Two bills lmvo been presented to
to the Canadian house of commons
to repeal the Dominion liquor license uct of* 18SU. Ono of theso
bill is introduced by Mr. Cameron,
of West Huron, and the other by
Mr. Hoitde. It seems to be uncertain, however, whether tho government will consent to have ihe
act repealed. It i.s stuted on very
good authority that they  will not.
A dispatch from Viotoria to the
Seattle Post, dated the Uth inst.,
contains tho following enrions statement: "An important decision, affecting the right of American steamers to tow in Canadian waters, ttfts
disposed of to-day. Somo time ago
the American steamer Goliah picked
up a British ship off Cape Flattery, and contracted to tow her to
Port Moody. Tho steamer brought
her to an anchor in Victoria outer
harbor, and entered Victoria harbor and coaled. The captain then
went to the custom house and procured a clearance for Port Town-
send, went outside nnd picked np the
ship again and towed lior into tlio
Straits. Whin 15 miles off Victoria lie cast the -*hip o(V entered
Port Townsend and denied for
Port Moody. Ho then came outside, picked up the 'ii]> again, mid
towed her to Port Moody. When
he next entered Victoria harbor
his vessel was seized. The Chief
Justice decided that the Goliah had
violated the coasting laws of Cana-
ada, and imposed a fino of 8100 and
costs."
The Settlement Bill.
It may, perhaps, bo taken for
granted that the settlement bill will
pass the house of commons. The
fact that the government were able
to carry the Canada Pacific Railway
loan resolutions by a majority of "fi
shows they are abundantly able to
curry the settlement bill, even if the
whole Britisli Columbia contingent
should go into opposition. Wo can
scarcely believe, however, thnt there
is any truth in tho report that British Columbia members are united in
opposing this bill. With the single
exceptimi of Nanaimo, wo know of
no constituency where a majority of
tlie ratepayers do not consider that
the bill should be passed, and the
settlement carried out. It must
appear to every person that if this
bill should, by any possibility, fnil,
the interests of this province would
be seriously affected. The dry-dook
would come back upon our hands,
and we would lose the ."j3-10,000
offered by the Dominion for a surrender of thnt much mismanaged
and costly work. The money so
urgently required for roads nud
bridges and public works throughout the country would not be available. The hope of having the railway lands thrown open to settlement
early this season would have to be
abandonded. The whole province
would suffer a permanent injury
from which it could not recover for
many years. We are quite certain
tbat nine-tenths of the people in this
district favor the acceptance of the
settlement bill, and wc cannot believe that Mr. Homer would so far
set himself in opposition to the
wishes of his constituents as to vote
against it.
Our Big Farm.
The "Bell Farm," on' the other
side of the Rocky Mountains, is thn
biggest farm in the world. It contains G4.OO0 acres, or 100 square
miles. Tho annual report of operations on this farm for 1883 has juat
been published, and from it may be
gathered some interesting facts us
well as useful lessons. During the
fall of 1882, 2,700 acres of new
ground were ploughed. The sod
was simply turned, the plough cutting only to a depth of 3 inches.
Tlie usual practice is to plough
twice, the second operation being
known as backsetting; but Mujor
Boll found it impossible to do this
in consequence of the lateness of
the season, and the experiment was
tried of sowing right on top of the
fresh sod. This experiment, it is
reported, met with very great success. The yield of wheat averaged
nearly 24 bushels to the acre, and
the sample was first-class. - The
total yield of wheat on tlio fnrm
last year was upwards of 90,000
bushels, and of oats about 20,000.
Last fall there were about 7,000
aeres ploughed ready for this year's
crop*   It is reported to be in much
better condition than that put under
crop last year, und it i.s estimated
that the farm will yield 120,000
bushels of wheat next full, besides
enough for seed next yenr. It is
proposed next fait to plough 18,000
acres, und 25,000 acres in tho fall
of 1885, when the crop is expected
to reach 000,000 bushels. The
wheat grown on the Bell farm last
year sold at air. average of 88 cts.
per bushel for consumption; the
choice grain, for seed, brought SI.25.
It is stated in the report that thero
were very great druwbticks to farming operations in the North-west
last year. The early part of tho
summer wns unusually dry. Not
until the middle of duly wns there
any satisfactory growth. From that
timo until early in September the
growth was rapid, but about that
date a severe frost seriously injured
nearly every fai'm product throughout the whole territory, us well ns
Manitoba. The Bell fnrm did not
escape the frost, but it almost entirely escaped theconsequcnceswhich
elsewhere proved so discouraging to
agriculturists. The wheat wns not
perceptibly injured, and the yield
was abundant. It is believed lhat
this fortunate escape is owing
wholly to the pains which the
malinger took to ensure the success of the enterprise. There is a
great deal of bad wheat in the
North-west, and this bad wheal is to
a great extent the product of bud
seed. When they wanted seed for
the Bell farm it could not be procured in the country. Thoy advertised for it, but the quantity of
roally good, clean wheat offered was
ridiculously small. Major Bell determined that he would hove the
best, and lie was obliged to purchase
it in Minnesota. Wo arc told that
u great many of tho North-west
farmers have manifested the most
foolish carelessness in selecting seed.
They sow anything that comes to
their hand, and many of the fields
are yellow with mustard, or variegated with other noxious weeds.
When once these posts take possession of a field it is most difficult
to exterminate them. One of the
lessons which may bo gathered from
tho experience of the Bell farm
i.s that it pays tho farmer to do everything well. The importance of pure
seed and systematic cultivation is
too often lost sight of, and tho results are sure to be disappointing.
We are told that many fanners in
Manitoba and the North-west wore
so discouraged last fall that they
contemplated abandoning their farms
and going elsewhere. But the large
measure of success which attended
the Bell farm gave them courage to
try again. They wero ao!c to see
that their failure was. to a considerable extent, the result of impni
dence, and it may bo the lesson will
produce lasting results, Every Canadian may reasonably feel a certain
degree of prido at -he success of
this mammoth farm, and wo of British Columbia would be delighted if
by any menus such n farm could be
established in this country. We
are free from many of the obstacles
which stand in the why of the Manitoba farmer, and there is littlo doubt
that a large farm, conducted after
tho manner of tho Bell farm, would
pay very handsome dividends in
British Columbia.

For a great many yoars tho settle
ment  on  the  north arm of  Fraser
River has been filling up nnd developing.   It is ono. of the oldest agricultural settlements in tho province, nnd
one of the largest und most successful.
Thero are now, probably, upwards of
100 sottlcrs in that region, and it 1ms
beon shown beyond question tlmt tlio
agricultural resources of tho settlement
aro second to nono iu the country.
At the present moment this largo nnd
flourishing   community   is practically
without a road or any means of communication   with tho outside world.:
Thoro is a good road from Granville !
across to near the rivor, but it doos
not roach the settlement at nil.   Thero
is  also  n trail, known ns tho Falso
Creek  trail, from  Falsa  Creek to a
point opposite the head of Sua Island;
but this  trail  is impassable.     Thd
North Arm is frozen up, and thoro is
no wator communication.   This branch
of the Fraser is much moro frequently
closed by ico than any other brunch,
and in winter it cannot be relied upon
as a highway.    We submit in all fairness that tho people ot the Nortii Ann
settlement  nro entitled to n road by
which  they  will  bo able to reach a
market at  all seasons of the yoar.
We  know of no community in this
district which hns received less from
tho government iu proportion to the'
amount they have contributed to tlio
revenue.   Tho road from the vivor to
Granville is 11 vory good one; but unfortunately, liko ninny  other reads in
this province, it is in tho wrong place.
It should havo touched tho river at
loast as far down as tho upper end of
Sea Island.   The peoplo at thu settlement nro very anxious for a rond, and
several  petitions  have been Bonfci tn
Victoria asking for an appropriation.
But thero scorns to be some dillbrcnoe
of opinion concerning tho proper location of tho rond.    Wo are not sufficiently  informed  to  pmnounco an'
intelligent opinion, but (coking at tho
map we should say the rond ought to
strike tho river near tho hend of Son
Island, nud continue down tho arm so
as to accommodate tho lower settlement.    This would allard accommodation  not  only to the residents on
Sea Island and tlio mainland, bnt nn
Lulu  Island, whero thero nro many
settlers.   -The poople of Lulo Island
would naturally come by water to the
rond, and  thoy would have to pass
round tho hend of Soa Island.   If tho
road   wero  located  any considerable
distance bolow tin's point, it would not
be convenient.   But there nre other
important circumstances wliich must
be considered in determining tho location of tho rond,    Tho presont rond
from this city to Hastings and Granville shows how stupidly road-mnkcrs
sometimes ignore the existence of common sense.    It hns buen suggested
that  a road  should  be constructed
from nearly opposite tho head of Son
Island to tho presont road from tlio
North Arm to Granville, striWlfijef it nt
a point nbout 11 miles from tho river.
Wo nre told that this road would lie
in a region whero thero aro uo serious
obstacles to road-building, nud it would
make the distance to Granville nbout
G&  or 7 milos.     Eventually a'rond
oould be constructed from this junction to tho now rond (via Falso Creek)

Editor Colombian.—I nm not the
official or recognized champion of tin
Chinese, but ns a lover of traditional
British fair play I cannot ntlow the lotter
of' 'Old Timer" iu your Saturday's issue to
go unnoticed. It may bo an irreparable
misfortune, but I have boen nurtured in
tho belief thnt nll men were born free
and equal and have inalienable rights iu
tho race for Ufo, liberty nnd happiness.
Abuso of the Chinamnu is no argument
though it appears to be the principal
stock-in-trade of a certain class upon tlio
Pacific Coast and it is most honorable to
tbe Chinaman that the abuse emanates
from that class only, The unreasoning
nature of tho vituperation is its peculiar
feature, nnd the platitudes retailed ad j
nauseam iu the discussion gunge fairly |
tho intellectual standard of his opponents.
What weight, for instance, hns the
contemptuous appellation of "pig-tailed"
race agninst a man's right to come or go
as lie pleases? Our grandfathers wore
'■-pig-tails" but they were none the less
gentlemen and good citizens for that.
As well might "Old Timer" denounce
the "oyo*glass" raee, or the "frog-eating''
race, or tlie "battered-beaver" race, and
demand their expulsion from our herd-
era. The fact is, if races are to he put
upon their merits in the question of a
forced exodus tlie "pig-tails" might not
bo the first to emigrate.
But they have, too, forsooth, demoralized our people by introducing opium.
Hos "Old Timer" forgotten that tho
Chinese themselves owe their national
vice to Christian England, who at the
point of tho bayonet aud in spite of tho
indignant and tearful p.-otesls of China
forced the hateful drug upon hor and stilt
forces it upon her thnt Knglish merchnuts
may fatten upon her blood and grow rich
upon her agonies. Will "Old Timer"
boliove it that out of ^220,000,003 of an-
hufll importation into China §112,000,0(10
is English opium, upon which the British raise ilS,000,lH)0of revenue, and that
while we aro mourning over the demoralization of our youth, every lyot in tho
opium-producing districts of British India is forced by law to cultivate the
loiipyj'all of wliich goes to China.
iVIiere thon is the cause for complaint ?
We have sown tbo wind; shall we complain if wo reap in small measure the
whirlwind ?
But tho great objection, nfter nll, Ib
thatChiuameu "will not contribute to
tub revenue," Thnt is just it! Ho
steadily refuses to bo a hoodlum and
Khali Uo six trustees, each ward iu every
suoh city being entitled to elect two trustees; and for each rural sohool district
there shall ho threo trustees."
3, Section 11 of the said Act is hereby
repealed, and in lieu thereof tho following shall be read:—
"Au annual meeting for tho election
of school trustees shall be held iu all rural school districts on the third Monday
in June in every year, commencing at 11
o'clock in the forenoon, the nomination
closing nt 12, noon, and the voting (if
any) at 3 o'clock in the afternoon."

The animal report of the operations
of the provincial lunatic asylum at this
city has been issued. Aside from tho
tabular Btntenients, the report of Dr.
Bentley, tho medical officer, contains
all that need bo snid nbout tho institution. From thnt report wo make the
following extracts:—-'The total number received during the yoar wan eight;
tho numbor discharged, livo; und tho
number of deaths, throe—two whites
and one Chiunmaii. Thu number of
patients contained iu the building (40)
exceeds tho capacity of convenient 110-
commodaitori by 10. One room, which
was intended for convalescent pntiouts,
contains live beds; a bath room, two
beds; und in the women's ward, two
beds hnve to bo mndo up iu tlieir sitting room for want nf other accommodation. The want of a greater number
of Bitting rooms is folt vory much. The
impossibility of separating those of the
patients who are improving from thoso j
with chronic mania, without locking
thom up iu their rooms, is very serious.
The corridors which might bo used nro
dark nnd gloomy. The Beats in tho
sitting rooms consist of a single row of
hard wooden bonches, not affording
accommodation sufficient for all at tho
snmo time; so most of tlio patients ure
to bo found either lying or crouching
on tho floor, The method of heating
tho building byutuves and open lire-
places iB not good; not only from the
uneven temperature, but as a source of
danger, In fact some clothing has
been burnt by n pnlient while in an
excited stale. Tho ventilation nud
lighting uf tho building nre nlso bad, tite
wiudowB being so high that the outside
world can only be seen by standing ou
a table—tho only uso to which that
articlo of furniture in the Bitting rooms
is put, The wnter, which I have examined 011 several occasions, is good.
The food is wholesome nnd sufficient.
Tho outside inclosed grounds for recreation are two bnre hard yards, with
half a dozen benches—-affording neither
shelter from wet, nor shade from tho
heat nf the sun. The vegetable gnr-
dun might bo enlarged, Bo that sufficient vegetables could bo grown to
supply tho iup'.ilution during the whole
year. The grounds iu front nf tho
building, n/nilablo if enclosed, could
bo nmdo beautiful, giving riot only recreation but healthful exercise to 11
number of the pntiouts, In viow of
the furcgoiug facts, I have grout hopes
that should these evils bo remedied, a
sins could be condoned. Everyone who
contributes to the revenue Is welcome to
stay in Canada: so we may infer from
thia guardian of tbe publio weal. His
contributions may vory soon land him in
the poor-house where the Canadian people may support him for the lost of his
worthless life, or ho may como hero as
an assisted emigrant and enter at onco
upon a poor*liouse career; no matter, he
has evidently buen a contributor somewhere and is more than welcome. His
savings, if not kept in tho country, at
least go no farther than Allsop's or Hon-
nessy^ which is quite legitimate if it
only miss Cathay. But John "must go."
Ho will not assimilate. He will bo industrious and frugal. Ho will live within his moans, and though iu all casus he
must leave nn equivalent hi Canada, he
persists in taking his little earnings, or
what tbe Christian white man does not
cheat him out of, bnck to China.
This non-contribution appeal? to be
the besetting sin of the Chinamen nt
Port Moody. Industrious, civil, and
quiet in other respects—-each ono to all
appearance minding his own business,
(living no offence to the Law and less
than some of hiB more sanctimonious tormentors to the Gospel. Ho is, nevertheless, at tbe bidding of a littlo clique of
contributors to -» ostracised and banished I Shame u our vaunted civil liberty! Shamo • our professed Christian
charity] S . rather upon the ignorant siioi-t-s. .udni-i-s that fails to see
how very 1. ,ch our treatment of tho
Chineso has to do with tlieir value as
colonists and their standing ns men,
Thero ituisfc by and by oome a ronctmn
iu favor of tho downtrodden celestial,
Tho better nature of our bost and wisest
men will yet find some way to fuse the
interests of Canada with those of lior
guests from the llmvory land, and tlie
piyjudicea of '-Old Timor" In a decade or

The epidemic of trichinosis referred
to in our last issue, Bays the London
Lancet, nud which occurred at mid iu
the neighborhood of Emorsleben, near
Hnlbei'sfadt, is one of the most severe
ever  recorded.   On Septombor Uth
last a pig wns killed by a butcher named Buhi-ens nt Emerslebci., and, according to law, its flesh should liavo
boon  oxamined  by the district inspector before being used as human
food.   On September 12th the butcher
gave a slice of meat to two neighbors,
who, according to local custom, chopped it up into a line mass, spread it on
bread, und ate it raw.   They botli fell
ill, and subsequently died.   On the
same day the butcher himself mixed
the remainder of the meat with that of
another animal, and sold the minced
com pound to his Emorsleben customers
overy dny from September 13th to the
19th, and all but five of them consumed
it in the mariner already indicated. As
the result, 250 persons were taken ill,
and over forty died.   The snmo mixture wiib also sold to forty-two customers at Heesdorf, forty-two being Boized
with illness nnd nine dying.   In one
family alone, amongst the total attacked thero wero four deaths.   Other isolated sales of meat took place, and
later ou the compound was again mixed
with additional fresh pork nnd sold to
customers, of whom eighty sickened,
but without fatal result.   At first the
cause of the epidemic remained a mystery, nnd it was not until at loast 150
persons had sickened that its true origin was discovered.   The details of the
outbreak have been published in Germany, in Paris and elsewhere,   The
French account being prepared ns the
result of local inquiry and with great
cure by Dr. Brounrdol.   According to
his investigations it would appear that
tho  trichina  contained  in the meat
mixture appeared most potent for harm
when consumed within about twenty-
four hours of the death of the animal,
33 por cont. of those who partook of it
within  that period  dying in consequence, also that the activity of the
meat for mischief gradually decreased
dny by day after the first period of
twenty-four   hours, until, when the
sixth day was reached, sickness without
a single death alone supervened.   Sex
does not appear to hnvo influenced ths
results, but, according to the belief of
the medical men iu the district, children resisted tho influence much better
thnn adults, whereas old people suffered most.   Whether at Emorsleben the
meat was really examined before it was
consumed can hardly bo ascertained;
but it is certain thnt both tho butcher
nnd the inspector partook of some of
it, for thoy both Buffered seriously in j
consequence. Trichiiuo wore, however,
discovered iu tho minced material at a
Inter stage.   There can be uo question
that the habit of eating the flesh of
pigs in a raw stato constitutes u great
danger to the population of Germany7
and few outbreaks could bring this
point homo more decidedly than the
ono now under discussion.   It has already been snid that five persons who
consumed tho meat at Emersloben did
not cat it raw.   These five persona, together with a servant, form the household of the mayor, and although the
meat was used in his family it wns
mnde   up  into sausages wliich were
boiled before being served up.   The
result wns that tho family escaped.
The servant, however, who partook of
the same meal felt ill, and she admitted that before tho sausnges were cook-'
ed she had spread some of the chopped
meat on to some bread and butter, and
had eaten it as a sandwich.  This habit
of eating raw flesh is universal in the
district, and the only safeguard afforded to the people is the appointment of
such inspectors as a barber at Emer-
sleben and a peasant at Deesdorf.   To
such   men nre intrusted microscopic
examinations, nnd this nt a feo at times
not amounting to moro than 11 few
pence.

NELLIE'S MEMORIES.
He did not address her, nnd the
gravity and sternness of hia manner
was not inviting for her to begin; but
ihe lingered long iu the dining-room
afterwards, while ho played with his
dogs and Rill, in the hops tbat ho
would speak somo roconciliatory word,
and provide some amusement for the
afternoon, but Herwald was inexorable, and offered himsolf instead ns
Katie's companion to Stony Cliff.
Poor Loo, it was very uncomfortable to be treated so, and on a wet
day, too, when sho wns dependent on
him for entertainment; and I was not
at all surprised to soe her betake her-
■•If to her rocking-chair, aud a long
musing fit that lasted till twilight
came on.
Neither Katie nor Herwald appeared
till tea was over, and then thoy had a
cozy little meal by themselves. The
walk and each other's company had
cheered them up, and they presently
entered the dm wing-room, looking
better and brighter, nnd Herwald
challenged me to a game of ehuss,
Now Loo loved chnBs passionately.
Herwald had been hor favorite opponent, and she would play with no one
else while he was near, and it wns
especially trying for her, when she
had lacked amusement so sorely nil
day, to see us Bit down for nn hour's
battle. Even Dudley pitied her, and
invited her to backgammon or draughts;
but Loo's spirit was up, and she would
have none of thom, so played and
sung to herself till the evening wns
over. '
The next day commenced just the
same: Herwald treated her with cold
politeness, only speaking to her aome
chance word, as necessity compelled;
shut himself up in his room again ull
the morning, and in the afternoon
went down to the works with Dudley
and Bruce; and aa Katio had promised to spend the evening at the parsonage, where aho was a great favorite, he coolly invited himself and wont
too.
The noxt morning at bveakfnst-timo,
Bruco, suspecting how matters lay,
was foolish enough to attempt to chaff
them both, but Horwald's brow grow
black, and ho answered the jest by
auch pungent satire that poor Bruco
turned red aa firo, and became silent.
I had expected to aee Herwald retire to hia own room as uaual after
this, but, to my surprise, lio followed
us into the drawing-room, and taking
' his school plans to a side-table, began
drawing, silently.
Louie atood and watched him for a
minute, as if doubtful whethor to
apeak or not; but the frown atill lay
heavy on Herwald's forehead, and his
lip curled cynically, nnd so her heart
failed her, and she sat down quietly
to her illumination, while Katio nud
I worked and chatted iu a corner by
ourselves. *
Once only Herwald raised his head,
and cast a keen swift glanc* nt her,
as she bent with drooping hnir over
the penciled scroll; ho hnd traced tho
design for hor with much elaborate
caro, one afternoon, and sho hud leant
over his chair and watched him as he
did it, and had praised the skill of hia
artistic fingers, telling him that she
should frame it and hang it iu her
room, for aha had never seen une sho
liked so much; nnd now she wns listlessly laying on the colors with her
mind far away, and tho beautiful
sernll would be spoiled.
Presently sho pushed it from her,
and uncoverod her embroidery frame
and fell to the shading of a roso in tho
same listless way, till, in hor absent
fit, the needleful of tloss silk trailed
from her hand, and Max reminded
her of it by trying to swallow it,
needle and all, and after thnt sho did
no more work.
It was again a wot afternoon, but
Katio, being healthily indifferent to
the changes of weather, announced
her intention of starting to the town
to match some Bilk; but this timo Herwald did not offer to oscort her; he
was going on with his plans, he snid,
and should carry them into the Oak
Sarlor, as the light from the bay win
ow was strongest,
So Halcot took the board, and Herwald was following him with the rule
and compasses, when Louie, who was
standing by tho window looking'idly
out at the rain, called out suddenly,
"Come back, Horwald, I want to
apeak to you."
Her tone wns peremptory and nl
most abrupt, and the proud flush
mounted to Herwald's brow, ns he
hesitated, still holding the door in his
hand, till ahe repeated her command
and swept towards him as if to cnmpel
him to obey.
"What do you wnnt, Louio?" he
asked, coldly, as he closed the door
and came forward.   -
"That I want you ia quite n sufficient reason for your obliging me; at
least it should be with a gentleman,
though by what codo of politeness
you frame your present behavior I am
at a loss to imagine; for stranger conduct thnn yours, Herwald Delorme,
during theso last three days, I hnve
never met boforo. Mny I nsk the
reason of this sudden nlteratiou of
manner!"
And Louie looked, as she poke, ns
Louie hnd never looked before, with
those great mild eyes full of n grieved
displeasure, and her red lip quivering
perceptibly.
Herwald's fnce grew dark ns ho
replied—
"You mny nsk, Louie, but I seo uo
necessity for my answering thnt question."
"Why not, pray?"
"Because the mode and expression
of it are alike distasteful to me," he
answered, laying down his campasses
and folding his arms. "I thought you
know mo better by this time than to
suppose thnt I would reply to anything so derogatory to my dignity."
"Your dignity! ah, Herwnld, you
think of little beyond that, I imagine,
or you would hardly so wound the
feelings of one fur whom you so lately
professed friendship."
"A friendship wliich you have made
me regret," he returned, bitterly; "no,
no, Louie, do not delude yourself or
me by applying such titles of esteem
to the Blight bonds that unite us.
Friendship hilonga only to the equal
mind and soul, but between you and
me-—pshaw—it is like n chain constructed of rose-leaves, thnt a breath
dissolves, a wandering wind will blow
ita fragments to nothing, and then
what remains?" and Horwald laughed
scornfully.
"I read your pretty allegory aright,"
laid Louie, sadly, "and f know what
wandering wind hns blown us two
•launder. Go, you are not my friend,
or you would not suffer such a trifle
to estrange us, or let a momentary
fault create such cruel jealousy and
distrust. I thought bettor of you--
ytf, indeed I did, and T waa just grow
ing to esteem nnd like you, and to feel
grateful for your constant kindness;
but now, uow you havo shown mo that
Louie's errors are more to you tban
her virtues, and that you cau neither
forgive nor forget. You may be disappointed nnd hurt, Horwald, and so
nm I, and not only that, but grieved
ond wounded to tho heart;" nnd Hushing to her broad whito forehead, Louie
turned nnd walked quietly out of tho
room, leaving Herwnld still standing
thero motionless and pale aa death.
The sound of tho closing door roused
him, for ho stnrted forward and criod,
"Louio, Louie," in a voice that wns
full of pain; then remembering himself ho came towards the fireplace and
laid his head down on tbe mantelpiece on his folded hands.
"Herwald," I exclaimed in terror,
"my dear boy," and the work fell from
my lap as I sprang to his sido, und
prayed hiin to toll mo what hnd hnp-
pened.
"Oh, Nell," ho cried, "it's all ovor
with me! I lovo her—I love her, and
I have never loved before."
And then in a tone of anguish,
"Oh, Nell, what shnll I do?"
"Do, Herwnld, do!—why, be a man
and boar your fate bravely, whatever
it may be. Come, it is no timo for
despondency—up nud tell hor nil that
is in your heart, nnd soo how she will
answer you."
"I toll hor—I! Do you want hor
to mock mo?" ho cried.
"Never; ahe cannot do it; she is a
true woman—ay, in Bpito of all her
faults and fellies, she is. Besides, you
owe it lo her; no honorable man should
witlield tho lovo ho feels for ft girl, or
leave her in Ignorance ot his intentions; a candid avowal of your ssnti-
menta will gain her eateom. even if it
will not win hor lovo. Believe mo,
Herwnld, I nm only speaking for your
good. Ah! if you only knew how
proudly I should greet you na my brother."
"Would you, Nellie ? ho snid, lifting up hia faco with a strange sad smile
upon it.
"My dear, I would; for there is
nono that I lovo better upon earth,
after Dudloy nnd Bruco, nnd " I
hesitated—"Keith; and I should think
bettor of Louie, nnd be more fond nnd
proud of her, if sho would lovo you
too."
"Vain hope," he answered, sighing.
"What am I that I should win nnd
wear her for my own 1"
"You nre yourself, Herwald, a
knightly gentleman, 'Bans pour et sans
roproche;'" and then in his pleasure
at my speech, he reddened over his
fair beardless fnco liko a girl.
"Are you surprised, Nellie, that I
love hor?—nh, 1 hnvo kept iny secret
well. None of you knew, nnd she herself less thnn till, what I thought of
her that first evening, and how, when
sho camo out from tho darkness that
night, I could havo fallen at her feet
and owned her ns my quoon; how 1
loved her even then! It has been a
troubled timo to me: joy ami sorrow
mingled; sorrow at the hopelessness ef
iny love; joy at seeing nnd being near
mc. She has called ino a' boy—but
what boy could so regulate hia pulses
and control his heart, while such passion ns mine wns wasting it? It wanted a man's will and a twin's strength*;
and even then to fail miserably."
And then what passed between us I
need not tell; but presently there enmo
now strength nnd courago to support
him, and be gave ino his sacred promise that be would tell Louie nil, nnd
patiently nbide by her decision.
"But evon then I will not give up
hope, until I learn from her lips that
she loves another."
At this minute Louio re-entered, and
came up to ua with bur gliding step.
"Hero is ft letter for you, Nellie,
with tho Lancashire post-mark; I suppose it is from your little friend, Milly;
I found it lying iu the hall, aa 1 came
down-;" nnd she wns passing away,
when Herwnld suddenly arising, asked
her in a low tone to stop nnd listen to
him j nnd Louio wonderingly obeyed.
And then ho told her all; calmly and
reverentially he stcod beside her, and
without faltering or hesitation mnde
his manly declaration of lovo; and
whon ho liad finished, he waited silently till she should lift her bent bend
and answer him.
Ho hnd told her all; his loneliness;
his longing for aome object on which
to fix his affections; his fastidiousness
and difficulty of choice He told her
that floino mystic influence, strong aa
destiny itself, seemed ovor to beckon
him to Sunnyside, nnd thnt ho bad discovered the first evening what that influence had beon. Ho owned thnt he
hnd struggled fiercely against tho now
fascination, booauae be deemed her
cold and unworthy of his love; but
how all his efforts bad been iu vain,
nnd dny by day and hour by hour he
had only learnt to prizo and cherish
her more; nud then raising bis head
liko n young king, bo laid himself, his
nnmo, nnd his possessions at her feet,
and bade her take or leave them ns
her heart nnd conscience should alike
dictate.
And Louie sat and listened with
folded hands and mute downcast fnce,
till ho hnd done, but when she answered him hor voice wna low nnd sweet,
and her eyea dim with tours.
"It is tt proud moment to me, Horwald, when you, whom I so deeply
respect und love, deem ino worthy to
share your life; your wife I cannot be,
but your friend—ah, you must nover
refuse to call me that again!" and she
stretched out her hands to bun, which
he caught nnd pressed to his lips.
"And you will not ,oonie to mc I"
Oh, the pEissionato yearning of his
tone.
"No, I cannot, for 1 do not love you
ns n woman should love her husband,
nud it would be a sin end n shame to
marry you without. Forget, then,
though I never enn, the words you
hnve spoken to me to-day, nnd let nll
things bo as they wero before, with
this one difference, that I shnll ever
hold you in my heart na the noblest
man I know,"
Thus spoko Louie with her beautiful
face pnliug with emotion, nnd ft Moment nftei'wnrd 1 rose nnd softly left
the room,

"Tliu world goes up and the world
goes down," says tho quaint old rhyme,
and we woro noon to experience the
truth ot the adage, for three days after
the memorable evening on whicli Herwnld confessed his love, came adverse
news from the north, and sundered
our happy littlo party by depriving on
of Katio.
Wo Imd just seated ouraolvos round
the breakfast-table that morning, when
Dudley entered with liis hands full of
letters', one of which lie flung across to
Katio, snying—
"There is your Edinburgh letter
Insaie, that you hnve boon expecting sn
long; I see it is iu Aunt Margaret's
protty flimsy hand, so toll us quick
what tha dear old lady hns to say fur
horsolf."
"So I will, when I've rend it," answered Katie, with a smile, but the
smile soon diod away as her oyo glanced over tho first few lines, and sho
paiaed it to me without a word, nnd
Dudley read it over my shoulder.
It wns from Aunt Margaret, and was
very brief and snd; tho minister had
met with n very severe accident
during thoir stay in Edinburgh;
Deacon Clyde's vixenish maro had
shied whilo he was riding her, and had
thrown him with his head against tho
curbstone. He wna brought homo insensible, and they feared concussion of
the brain, ns ho hnd lain ever since in
a state of lethargy, bordering midway
botween lifo and death.
As tho danger, though imminent,
wns not immediate, Aunt Margaret had
not cared to startle Katie with a telegram, nnd had written instead; but
none the less was ahe auro that her
dmling would come to her at onco, in
this hor hour of trouble; nud thus
with many a loving message, the letter
ended.
It was very and, nnd I could see it
all so plainly; tho dark tall house in
the dim close of Old Town, Edinburgh;
tho littlo three-cornered room with the
great bluo bed, beside which Aunt
Margaret would sit all day, smoothing
her muslin apron with failing tremulous hands, whilo Deacon Clyde's fussy
little wife, with hor skirts pulled
through her pocket-holes, and her
front of flaxen curls bobbing over her
black bead-like eyes, would trot fifty
times in an hour between tho croaking
door nnd the ebony cabinet, as Bhe did
whon I full ill one day, nnd Katie and
she cosseted me together. And the
minister would lie—but hero Horwald's
clear, concise voico broke upon my
miming—
"What is tho earliest train by which
you can start, Katie?"
"tl.lC to-morrow," sho returned,
'unless Dudley will let mo take the
mail train for to-night."
"On no account, dear Kitty," replied hor cousin; "I could not consent
to anything so improper; rest content
with ua these few hours -longer; you
seo Aunt Margaret says decidedly that
thoro is no immediate danger."
"In that case," snid Herwald, "I
shall be your escort for tho first hour
or two, at lenat so fnr na our paths lie
together."
Then, aa Louie looked up quickly na
alio followed Katie out of the room,
and tlio rest of ua uttered nn exclamation of surprise—
"I nm aware that my mode of announcing my departure is singularly
abrupt, but your astonishment will be
lessened when I inform you that I
oan to return in threo weeks, or a
month, at the latest."
"Three weoks, man! perhaps you
will havo the goodness to explain why
you nro going away at nil ?'-
"With pleasure." And Herwald
handed to Dudley tho lotter he had
just been pcruaing. "Rend thnt, and
you will seo for yourself what impudent fellows those tenants of mine aro,
ud how they require their landlord's
constant presenco among them."
"But can't your steward settle all
those matters without your bothering
your bond with them?"
"Ho could, I dare Bay, but I nm
■fttber ii rigid disciplinarian, and do
not care to delegate much authority to
a subordinate; besides which, ho is too
much of nn easy-goer, nnd lets them
infringe by inches on our feudal rights.
No, I must manage all tbis myself, call
the rascals to account, and mako them
eat bumble-pin on pain of forfeiture of
tho lease; and then, while I am there,
I must go over my school plana with
Allan and Wright, and seo that they
begin at once getting the workmen nnd
materials together. I am going to
make Allan my clerk of the works; he
has twice ns much brains in him us
Dlincnn nnd Wright put together."
"But, iny dear follow, thia won't
take three weeks or n month."
"Won't it ? then I beg to differ from
you; nud ns great haste is bad speed,
I mean to go on iny own deliberate
wny; but I seo no reason why I should
not chnrter a companion to enliven my
solitary home, so I am going to ask
Bruce to give me the pleasure of his
company."
"Me I" cried Bruce, evidently much
surprised. "Nonsense, you don't want
mc, Herwald."
"But I do," he returned, eagerly;
"I wnnt you nwfully, only I waa afraid
to nsk, lost you ahould find it dull.
You seo I shnll be ont riding half tho
dny, but if you do not mind being loft
a good denl to yourself, and cau find
entertainment in my billiard-room,
horsea, and dogs, and will be content
with Allan for your Squire, and me as
your evening companion, you will not
lack resources—but atop—I have a
thought, why don't you bring Halcot?
I hnvo promised ho shall come aome
day, and no time is liko the present;
you will find him both useful nnd
amusing."
"I should like it of all things," said
Bruce; and, to tell the truth, he looked
extremely flattered, while Hnlcot
clapped his hands in an ecstasy of joy.
"But how about tho factory, Dudley?
I don't wnnt to shirk work."
"Yon can be well spared, at lenst
for a fortnight. And look here,
Bruco, if things turn out badly with
poor Uncle Cameron, you cannot do
less thnn gu on to Edmburg; ua Keith
is nwny, no ono but you enn ao well
perform a son's part."
"What do you mean by that?" iiBkod
Bruce, reddening nnd biting his lip.
"What I say; I seo that you understand mo, so there is no need for my
mnking any further remark; but thnt
T am sure that it is your rightful prerogative, I would oiler myself in your
Blend."
"But don't you think, in that case,
thoy would liko you beat J" asked
Bruce, huskily.
"Aunt Margaret, it is true, knows
you but little, and that only by report, butt am sure tlmt bIio will value
highly your business powers and
shrewd good sense. Como, don't bo
foolish." ns Bruce again attempted to
speak, "and for Hcavon's sake don't
stand ao blindly iu your own light; lot
Kutie aeo you at the manso, and in
your own true character, and she "
but here Dudley, becoming awaro of
the boy's round oyes and widely-open
ears, broke off abruptly with a smile.
"And you really think," continued
Bruce, pretending to dust the crumbs
from his waist-coat, "that you can
spare ine for three weeks?"
"My dear boy, for a month, if it
comes to thnt; business is not very
great, nud yon had no holiday hist
year. Give Herwald hifl fortnight,
nnd then go on to Edinburgh or the
manso, ns future circumstances guide
you."
"Thanks," ropliod Bruce, briefly,
and he loft tho room; but though this
monosyllnblo was all he said then or
afterwards to his brother, yet the
warm look of gratitude that lighted up
hia faco wns moro than a rewnrd for
all tho extra work that his absence
would entail on Dudley,
Shortly after that I wont up to poor
Katie.
