The Fraser Mouth.
It. definite channel, deep enough
to .limit .11 classes of sea-going res-
•til, oould be established and maintained at the und heads, there is
nothing to hinder New Westminster
being made the actual terminus of
the Canadian Paoifio Railway. -The
river, >■ far aa this oity, presents no
obstaolea to shipping, and the occa-
•ional existence of ice in exceptionally severe winters ia a difficulty
which could easily be overcome. At
present ocean steamships of moderate
draft ean and do enter the river
without trouble. But if a line of
ateamahip. were established botween
tbe C. P. K, terminus and trans-
Pacific porta . larger class of vessels
would be employed. These vessels
could not enter the river except at
highest tide, .nd even then th. Ventura would be attended with more
or leas danger. Aa the great highway to the interior of Biitish Columbia the Fraser river ahould be
made available to all classes of ships.
Not many years ago tbe same difficulty found at th. mouth of tbe
Fraser existed at the mouth of the
Mississippi. Only vessels of moderate draft could reach the -.ity of
New Orleans, and the commerce of
that city waa limited and unsatisfactory. But Capt, Eads undertook
to remove the obstruction, and he
has succeeded. A few months .go
the iron ateamahip Silvortown waa
aafely taken to New Orleans. The
Silvertown is on. of the largest met
chant ateamships afloat, having .
carrying capacity of about 6k000 tons.
Now, the conditions surrounding the
mouth of the Mississippi are much
the same .a thoso which surround
the Fraser, and what haa bean don.
for the one may be done for the
other. Capt. Eads' plan was to cou-
atruct jetties at the mouth, thus confining the river te . permanent channel .nd lessening the quantity of
matter likely to be deposited. We
believe . aimilar plan might be
adopted her. with equal success, and
carried out at very much less cost.
It would undoubtedly require. Urge
expenditure, but the benefits accruing to th. country would bo very
great In consideration of ita failure to preserve the terms of union
tbe Dominion government might
very properly be asked to undertake
auoh . work. Millions of dollars
bavo been .pent out of the federal
nvenue. (toward, which this province contributes a considerable
.hare) for the construction of canals
in .astern Canada, and our waterway, are not less important than
thou, of tha cat Let our representatives urge thia matter upon the
attention of tbe Ottawa government "
Tbe Crash of Worlds.
If ever two great worlds do meet in
this way it is possible to predict suine
of th. consequences. To use the technical language of science, "their energy of molar motion will be converted
Into various forms of molecular and
potential energy)" which, translated
Into the vernacular, means that there
will be evolution of hut and light,
wbil. at tb. earn. tim. the solids present will be wholly or in part liquified,
tht liquida vaporised, and the vapors
and gases rarefied anil expanded. Th.
intensity uf the notion will depend, ot
course, mainly upon the mass and
swiftness ef the colliding bodies; but
>n easy calculation shows that if our
Mirth were ever to meet another globe
like herself, and meeting with the same
velocity, heat enough would be generated by the shock to transform thein
both into . hug. ball of vapor; unless,
indeed, th. central cor. of the earth is
muoh colder md mors refractory than
illy supposed. At any rate, tne
quantity of beat developed would be
auOciant to rn.lt, boll, and completely
vaporise . mass of ic fully 700 times
that of both th. colliding worlds—an
ice planet 160,000 miles in diameter.
If, however, the implnejng noises
Wen, to begin with, mainly gaseous
(as th. tun seem to be), the effect
might be curiously, different. Heat
would, of course, be generated, just as
in the caso of solid bodies; but as a
wn.oqu.iioe, apparently most paradox-
leal, the resulting: nebula might actually be cooler than either of the bodies
before the. encounter; of course, it
would be vastly expanded in volume.
Just as . gaseous mass, contracting
under its own gravity froin loss of
boat by radiation st its surface, continually rises in temperature, so a similar mass, expanding against Hi own
" i from aoMsaiun of heat within,
way fall
may fall in tamperatun, nay, muat
fall, if the body ia composed of "perfect" gas. Of course, immediately
after the collision, and before tbe ultimate expansion bulk was attained, the
temperature and brilliance of the maai
would be for a time vastly increased,
but the final result would be aa stated.

NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. 0., SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1883.
NUMBER 44
Foolhardy Capt. Braver.
(London Standard, Oot. 36.)
Captain Dram, who started from
Dover un Monday night, with a view
to crow the Chutuiel in a miniature
paddle-boat constructed by himself,
and exhibited at the Fiah*rtei Exhibition! WHB landed at Dover yesterday
afternoon, from the Gorman barque
Albert Newman, of Rostuok, having
been picked up oii the North Foreland.
The Captain states that after he left
Dover on Monday night, he continued
without mishap until shortly after midnight, whon lie was more than half-way
aoross the Channel. It thon came on
suddenly to blow, aud rapidly increased
to a south-westerly gale. He continues:--"! then gave up nil hope of
reaching Calais, and allowed the buut
to drift before the wind. Dim waves
were very high, but the bout behaved
well and only shipped very little water,
which I removed by a hose pump
which hnd been given mo before I left
Dover. About one o'clock I drifted
on to the ton*; Sands of tho Goodwin.
There was a fearful sea, and tht gale
being at its height the waves rose perpendicularly all round my little craft,
and I never expected to get out of
them alive. One sea roso up nnd Hup.
pad down on the tup of me, filling the
boat. I was unable to pump tbo water
out, but the corks and bladders kept
the oraft from sinking. When night
let in I was very exhausted, nnd gave
up nil hope of being rescued. The
tide carried me back towards the North
Foreland. About nine o'clock I saw
the lights of a vessel npproacliinp me.
I had no means whatever uf signalling
to her, being too weak to hail her with
sufficient power, and my horn being
lost; but she bore right down upon
me, and I caught her stern to prevent
her running mo down. 1 had just before called out to the vessel to luff, and
this attracted the attention uf some of
the sailors, who put n tight over the
side and threw me a line. A line was
also thrown mo from the ship's master,
but I missed both. The vessel then
passed on for nearly half a milo and
then came about, aud after somo time
they discovered me. A line was again
thrown to me, and this time I caught
it I tried to fasten it to the boat but
did not succeed, and I then auked them
to haul me up. I over-calculated my
strength. When they had got me halfway up I dropped into the water. Two
of tho sailors then lowered themselves
over the side of the vessel and rescued
me. -A was taken on board and attended to nnd recovered." The captain states that he is not likely to risk
his life again, and that the reason he
made the voyage wns to prove that
there was something more in tho croft
than was accredited to her. His boat
was lost.	
A. M, Hamilton, Warkworth, writes;
".For weeks I was troubled with a swelled
ankle, which caused me much pain and
annoy snee, Mr. Maybee, of this place,
recommended Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil
for it. I triod it, and oefore one bottle
was used I was cured. It is an article
of great value." Beware ot Electric or
Electron Oils, as they are Imitations of
Dr, Thomas* Kclectric Oil.
New York Millionaires.
Tho New Vork Il'urf-J on Monday
list contained a list of the millionaries
of New York. They number over 300,
and it is perhaps safe to say that in no
other eity of the world could there be
enumerated so many men of wealth
aggregating a sum so enormous as the
added worth nf thue '300 persons.
What is most interesting, however, is
that with few exceptions the list is
composed of self-made men, whose
great good fortune has been achieved
by their own onergy and sagacity. Included in the list are two Canadians,
One of those is Sir Roderick Cameron,
well known as the head of the Arm of
Messrs. R. W. Cameron & Co., who
was knighted for his success in building up a groat trade between Amerieu
and Australia. Sir Roderick, who was
the son of a Hudson Bay factor, was
born in Glengarry County, Ontario,
and was for some time in business in
Hamilton. The other Canadian is
Erastus Wiman, a native of Toronto,
who graduated from tho office of this
paper, commencing life as a printer on
the magnificent sum of one dollar and
twenty cents per week I To-day he is
at the head of a great agency business
extunding over a continent, the cliief
spirit in a vast telegraph combination,
and though named among tho millionaires of the metropolis, has not
failed to do a good work for his native
city in tlie free baths which he has
presented to the citizens. Both Sir
Roderick and Mr. Wimun, though activo
in business in Now York, are residents
of Staten Island, a suburb of New
York, and both are dilligently engaged
in promoting Its   inteu-ifu —Toronto
Globe.

Strange Rescue from Slavery.
Some sixty years since a Bank of
England £6 noto was paid into a Liverpool merchant's office in tho ordinary
course of business. On holding it up
to the light to test its genuineness, the
cashier taw some faint red marks upon
it. Examining them closely, he traced
some half-effaced words between
the printed lines and upon the margin
of the note, written apparently in
blood, After a long and minute
scrutiny ho made out the words: "If
this note should fall into the hands of
John Doan, of Longhill, near Carlisle,
he will learn hereby that his brother is
languishing a prisoner in Algiers."
The merchant immediately communicated with Mr. Dean, and he lost nn
time in bringing the matter before the
Government, Enquiries were let on
foot, and the unfortunate man discovered and ransomed. He had been
a slave to the Day ef Algiers for eleven
years, when the message he had traced
with a splinter of wood dipped in his
own blood, reached the Liverpool
counting house. Liberty, however,
came too late; the privations nnd hardships of tho galleys had sapped his
strength, and, although he was brought
home to England, it was but to dit.

Whose Business?
A   correspondent    at   Ladner's
Landing semis us-a complaint and
an enquiry.   Thero is a public road
running  through the municipality
and terminating somewhere nbout
Ladner's Landing.    The complaint
is tbat some person has erected a
building    wliioh   encroaches   upon
thia road and interferes with traffic,
and   the  enquiry  is ns to whose
business It is to havo tho obstruction removed.   We understand thut
the owner of the building claims
that be has not encroached on the
publio thoroughfare, and the municipal  authorities  contend that he
has.   Tho matter, we believe, wns
referred   to   the government, who
were asked to have the building removed.    Our correspondent states
that the chief commissioner of lauds
and   works  refused   to take   any
action, and  that   this refusal has
produced a  very  unfavorable impression in the municipality.     It is
even asserted that the government
shirked responsibility because they
were afraid of giving offense to certain persons who were supposed to
exercise a good deal of influence.
Now, we have no hesitation in saying that a government that shirks
its  rerponsibility  from motives of
expediency is unworthy of publio
confidence.     But is it tbe duty of
the government to interfere in such
matters as this?    We think not.
Sec. 104 of the Municipalities Act,
1881, subsections 60 to 75, clearly
places  the    responsibility  on   the
municipal   council.     We  do  not
know anything regarding the merits
of the case in question.   It is for
the   municipality   to  satisfy ■ itself
that thero has been an encroachment
on the publio road.    Having done
so   we   presume the proper course
would be to take action in tbe courts
and compel the removal of the ob
struotion,      Hnving  delegated   to
municipal councils authority to deal
with such matters, it is very absurd
to expect the government to take
proceedings.     The people of this
city might as well ask the govern
ment to have obstructions removed
from our streets, for all municipal!
ties have precisely the same powers
in this respect.
ment is true, it is certainly most
surprising. Our facilities for ob
twining information respecting publio sentiment on the mainland may
not be equal to those of the Nanaimo Free Press, but the information
we possess leads to a conclusion very
different from that of our cotempc-
rary. We* are aware that there ore
some people on the mainland who
would be glad to see the settlement
bill defeated simply because its defeat would embarrass the government; but we have uot yet found
a man in tbis part of the province,
freo from party prejudice, who believes tbat such a course would be
in the interests of the country.
Tho defeat of the settlement bill
would place the muinlnnd especially
in a moat unfortunate position. On
the faith of its becoming law hundreds of settlers havo taken up land
during tbe past 'season, because the
bill secured to them a claim whicli
they considered sufficiently sum
Defeat that bill, atiil thp ground of
security at onco disappears. -That
never • sufficiently -to- bo-condemned
dry-dock would come back again to
the provinco, with its debt of $340,-
000. The $120,000 already received
from the Dominion on dry-dock account would havo to be refunded ;
and as the estimates for the present
year were to a considerable extent
based upon the dock money as an
asset, road work would necessarily
bo stopped throughout the country.
It would be perfectly absurd for the
people of tbe mainland to oppose
the settlement bill which gains for
them so many advantages, and we
have no hesitation in asserting that
the Free Press has been monstrously
deceived by his "private information" respecting mainland opinion
on this matter.

Off the Track Again.
Not long ago we accused the Nanaimo Free Press of misrepresentation in connection with the settlement bill, We stated tbat our
Nanaimo cotemporary had been
guilty of unfairness, presumably
with the object of making the most
out of the agitation which has for
some time been exciting the people
of Nanaimo. In his issue of last
. Saturday the Free Press makes a
reply in which he distinctly repudiates the assertion attributed te
him by the Columbus.  He says:
The Columbian accuses us of misrepresentation inasmuch as it alleges that the
Free Press stated "that tlie government
"Imve given $14,000,000 worth of land
"and subsidies, including the P«tice
"River land and tho dry-dock subsidies,
"for tho island railway." Now, the
Free Press mado no such statement, and
the Columbian is well aware of tliat
fact.
The Free Press then goes on to
quote what he did s*uy in order to
prove what he did not say. Unfortunately for himself, however, we
happen to havo a copy of tho paper
in which appeared the article we
were discussing. Referring to it
we find that our cotemporary, either
from oversight or design, cut off liis
quotation just nine lines too short.
If he had proceeded he would have
found the following sentence (see
Free Press of 10th November):
In  75 hours tho provincial assemoly
S;ave away 814,000,000 of property *.*•*
ur a railway that will not cost moro
than a million to construct * * *
If our cotemporary will be good
enough to digest the above extract,
or to refer to his own fyles, he will
perceive that ho has not been misrepresented in any particular whatever. And having done so our
cotemporary will undoubtedly, if he
has ft proper conception of honorable journalism, apologise for having
accused the Columbian of wilful
misrepresentation. The Free Press
proceeds to say:
- In reference to our assertion that we
were of the opinion that a majority of
the electors of the entire province
opposed the. provisions of the settlement
aot, we will inform our cotemporary that
the opinion waa based on private information received from nearly every die*
trict on the mainland and island, and in
nearly every instance waa this information imparted by parties extremely
friendly to the personnel and general
policy of the present local government.

Dominion Land Office. —From present indications it seems to be settled
that the Dominion land office is to be

such a location must be sufficiently apparent. The Dominion government

All their lands lie on the mainland,
and it is on the mainland that the land
office should he established. Its location at Victoria will be exceedingly inconvenient to those who hold federal
lands or wish to acquire them. Wo

chaingang were taken away partly because of the kitei-fi-rence of some mem-
ben of the council. Ths plans were
continually being clumped, and,as a
consequence a great deal of the sfongV
time was wasted. It would not require many days to complete the work,
however, and as the place is very convenient to the prison-it is to be hoped
the chaingang may be allowed the dry
hours of rainy days at this work.

U8T KEW8 OF THE SEASON.
Mr. John Grant, M. P. P., who
arrived yesterday from Cassiar. .states
that the business of tho' mines has
been fairly prosperous, the total output for the year being botween $130,-
000 end 8140,000. Thero havo been
no new strikes, miners in most cases
havo followed up present developments. The general health of the
camp during the past season has been
good. Several claims have paid considerably over wages, notably the
Berry Gulch claim on Thibet creek;
tbe Peter Traynor; the Bindley Dris-
coll on Five Mile Gulch and the Blue
Bell Oo. Ou the lower part uf the
creek Humphries & Mcvickor wero
hiking out good pay with better indications. A number of tunnels were
being run to tap the lead worked by
the Bradley-Driscoll. Claims nn Dense
creek, with ono exception (Wilson's)
had met with indifferent success. On
McDanie creek a Chinese company
took cut from $20,000 to $22,000 in
100 feet ground, aud expect to do as
well for the next four years. Several
other Ohineso wore doing well, and
quite an extent uf ground on the lower
benches gave good promise and employed quite a number of people. The
McNutt claim had paid well. The
presont owner bought it on credit, hut
had already paid for it and accumulated a handstfme halunue. Taylor &. Mc-
Quuig, un Quartz creek, near MoDame
creek, had got out good pay and were
still working in the drift, as were several companies, some of whom were
doing well. A company on the First
North Fork commenced work at the
closo of the season with excellent pros-
icots; they wore drifting 011 what is
uown as the old Pocahontas ground.
Tlit) general outlook is fully as favorable as it has beeu for the post four
yoars. On Walker crock a number of
Chinamen have done so well that they'
will return next spring and re-oppn
their claims. Thp men who were at
DeLoire had nearly alt returned re-
florting poor success. They intend,

The Great Rain Fall.
Editor Columbian. — Perhaps your
readers would feel interested lu an ao-
count of the great rain storm and the
causes which led to it. Well, to begin
with it, we must go back to tho 21st qf
November when a .South-cast gale was
somewhere In the proximity of this'city,
but not felt. Tho gale, following the
law of storms, voered into the west on
the i!2nd and covered the land with cold
air, Bending the thermometer down from
4iV on the 22ml to 20* on tho 23th, causing light suow on the 24th and 25tb| but

area coining iu contact with the cold air
previously caused by the cold west wind
referred to before was condensed and
precipitated into snow to the depth of 5
inches here (more at other places in tho
neighborhood) on the morning of the 26th.
The low area continuing to force its way
the thermometer began to rise till it
reached 48° and heavy masses of clouds
formed in the southeast, tliese clouds
coming from a warm latitude and hehvi
heavily charged with moisture spread
over the cold ground previously covered
with snow and the moisture they contained was condensed und precipitated
to the following extent: From 10 a. m.
of tho 27th to 9 a. m. of the 28th there
fell 2.2."> inches of rain; from 10 a. in. of
28th to 0 a. m. of the 29th there fell 4.00
itches; and from 11 a. in. of tho 20th to 0
a. m. of the 30th 3.04 inches, making iu
all 10.28 inches in 70 hours, being the
largest rainfall ever recorded here as far
as I am aware. Reducing this to weight
it represents in round numbers 1,028

A Pnllietlc Story.
"Mamma," said a three-year-old
Trojan, arising from his knees after
saying his evening prayer, ''God
doesn't do what I tell him to. I say
'flod bless me and mike me ■ goed
boy,' but,he lets Satance*iraround
and make me* a naughty boy sometimes," nnd having shifted responsibility for his childish iniquities, he
tumbled into dreamland. It wasn't
a very severe charge of omnipotent
remissness that the littlo fellow mode,
and'the experience of thu Detroit boy,
pathetically told by the Pott, wfll
doubtless satisfy hiin that Uod does
sometimes do what baby lips "tell"
him to do:—■
But something stayed hiifeet; there
was a fire in tho grate within—for the
night was chili—and it lit up the little
parlor nnd brought out in startling
effects tho pictures on the wall. But
theso wore as nothing to tho picture
on the hearth. There, by the soft
glow of tho firelight, knelt his littlo
child at hor mother's feet, its small
hands clasped in prayer, ita fair head
bowed, and as its rosy lips uttered
each word with childish distinctness,
tho father listened, spell-bound to the
spot:
Now I lay mo down touleep,
'    Ipmy tho I-ordmysoultoKocp:
Irlahould die before Iwake.
I prny (lie Lord my soul to take.
Swoot innocence. The man himself,
who stood there with boarded lips shut
tightly together, had suid that prayer
once at his mother's Lnoo. Where was
that mother now? The sunset gates
had long ago unbarred to let her pass
through. But the child had not finished; he heard her: "God bless mamma,
papa and myownself." There was a
pause and she lifted troubled blue eyes
to - her mother's face. "God bless
papa," prompted the mother softly.
"God bless papa," lisped tho little one,
"And—-please bring turn home sober."
He, could not hear the mother as she
said. this, but the ohild followed in a
clear inspired tone: "God—bless papa
—and please—-send him—home—sober.
Amen." Mother and child sprang to
their feet in alarm when the door
opened suddenly, but they wero not
afraid when they saw who it was returned bo soon. But that night when
little* Mamie waB being tucked up in
bed after such a romp with papa, she
said.b tho sleepiest and.moBLr "
touted of voices: "Mamma, God
swers most as quick ns the telephone,
iloosn't ho?"—Troy Times.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES,
(Continued.)
Leading a desultory lounging life iu
town, where* ho habitually resided,
Captain Hazeldean (still called so,
though he had long sold out of bis
regiment) followed an unprofitable,
aimless existence, seeking refuge from
ennui by plunging still deeper into the
vortex of fashionable folly, and abhorring the very namo of his old home,
which he visited rarely and with the
strongest reluctance.
Perhaps Iub aunt's haughty temper
and many infirmities combined to
work this chango in him; perhaps be
bad grown bitter with long waiting
for his inheritance; but better bad
grown to worao with Phillip Hazeldean in those days, and ths powers of
evil were triumphing over their prey.
He weuld not marry; tbat had boen
his aunt's grievance for years. Many
an heiress had sho chusen for him,
and when those bad failed, many n
well-born, beautiful girl, but he bad
scouted them all with a sneer; he
could not, would not, and should not
marry, he affirmed, nt the bidding of
any woman in England, and that uo
advantages of person or fortuno could
compensate him for lhe loss of his
freedom; and so, putting away from
him with fretful, impatient hand the
only blessing which would have availed
to win him from his weary self, and
fill up the void in his life, Philip
Hazeldean triumphed in the exercise
of his own free will, and was at seven-
nnd-thirty still an unfettered man.
Unfettered, but not happy; it did
not take a second look at bis face to
road that; in his bitter words, and
looks, and cold hard sneers, wero outward, visible signs of a discontent
' always gnawing at his heart strings.
I havo always thought, and sometimes not without reason, that the
man was wasting under the influence
of some oarly disappointment—perhaps some hopeless love for a girl he
dare not wud and bring as wife to
Hazlitt Park, for fear of forfeiture of
his inheritance. But if this were so,
I was morally certain that the love
had perished, leaving only the ashes
of his discontent behind.
In person, bo was a goodly man
enough, with a proud, easy bearing,
and a fair, well-featured face. His
hair, mustache and board were singularly blonde—whito almost, soft and
silky, and profuse in quantity, aud his
dark prominent hazel eyes were the
only features which redeemed him
from utter colorlossnoBS.
Almost at the sums time that Philip
first came to reside at Hazlitt Hall,
my godmother had, for same inexplicable reason beat known to herself,
adopted another ohild, a girl, aud this
was ltoso Meredith, None knew of
the parentage or birth-place of the
beautiful little stranger who shared
Philip's lessons and play; none knew
for what purpose she was so carefully
reared and educated, and taught the
accomplish merits nud graces that might
have titled her for any station. Ilut
surmises were many, though facts
wero ftw. Somo said sho was, intended
for the heir; others for some county
match; a few, that she was to be enabled to work out hor way in life as a
governess; aud lastly, that Bhe was to
be a life-long companion to her patroness; and apparently only these last
seemed to have a slight glimmering of
the truth.
Almost before people had finished
talking, and when their patience was
waxing low for watting for the truth,
while yet iu the meridian of her
womanly beauty and grace, Rose
Meredith's fiat had gone forth, and
the victim of caprice had sunk into
the life-long domestie drudge.
How it had come nbout no one
knew; but while people looked and
marveled, the high-spirited girl had
become all at once the weary, broken
down woman, who, day by day and
hour by hour, endured the fitful caprices and haughty insolence of the
stern mistress of Hazlitt, whom, out
of gratitude more divine tban human,
she tended.
Out of gratitude; for surely no
other reason oould havo kept her im-
prisonod so long in that great lonely
house, shut out from living companionship, from kindred spirits, and
from sympathizing friends. Who,
save Captain Bazeldean, Louie, and
myself, and perhaps the physician and
olorgyman, over voluntarily crossed
that threshold—over passed through
that creaking gate, whose stony dragons guarded one poor English maid
shut up there of her own free will,
more rigidly than the enchanted ones
of old) Not even allowed to attend
tho poor whom she loved; pitied and
contemptuously looked down upon by
tbe very servants whom she would
have been the firat to nurse iu sickness
or to comfort In sorrow; all her girlish sweetness wasted, all her tins talents and abilities unused—did over
man look on a sadder sight than Rose
Meredith, moving in her shadowless
gray dress about the house? She
never complained; no one ever heard
* murmuring word from those quiet,
patient lips; no ont ever saw her
weep, or heard her laugh, and her
smile was sadder than most people's
tears.
Thero was such a mystery about her
too; no one know hur age, and guesses
on tlm. subject wero utterly futile;
for the last fifteen years, since I had
known her, she had never seemed
different to mo, and others said the
tame, nor eould we find a olew in her
general appearance, for every feature
contradicted another, and spoke alternately of youth and ago.
The girlish rounded figure, so beautifully molded, might belong to nine-
teen; the face, still so fresh nnd fair,
might belong to seven-ami-twenty;
but what of tho plentiful tresses of
■oft gray hair folded back from the
running in clear blue lines, but swelling deep purple, as if they would burst
through the thin trembling skin, and
entangling themselves in raised contorted twists, as if they were too tightly strained; and then the palms, not
pinky or moist or cool, but burning in
a crimson blaze cf color, of morbid
beauty, of something I had never seen
before.
These hands of Hose Meredith's had
strange ways with them too; they were
restless hands; they would not support
her book quietly^ or lay in her lap as
others; they had odd tricks and curious ways of their own, fluttering nervous ways of twisting themselves in
odd, ungraceful motions, of pressing
palm to palm, aud knitting fingers
into the puckorod cloth, of passionate
grospings and workings. Tired hands,
sick and weary of themselves, and
according strangely with the changeless face, and low, sweet, monotonous
voice.
And this wss why I hated Hazlitt
Park, because to my undisciplined
girl's heart no martyrdom could be
more exquisitely painful tu witness
than the slow torture that was wasting that woman's life, and not the less
surely, that she tried to hide it under
an impenetrable mantel of reserve
aud silence. Yet we wore friends.
Strange as I was to her thoughts and
feelings, I felt that we two understood each other, and that she lovod
me even better than I did her, though
when I first prayed to be her friend,
prayed from tlie depths of an intolerable yearning to impart some comfort,
she put me from her with a sudden
frightened movement, bidding me
choose among the bright and young,
and not a grave sad woman like hor.
"Besides, Helen." alio siid (she
always called nio Helen), "friendship
is nothing without confidence, and
mine is only given to myself and
Heaven,"
And as sho spoke the tears stood
thickly in her soft blue eyes; nnd
suddenly pressing me to her bosom
she bade God bless me, and went awny;
but ever since then I have taken the
name she would not givo me, and held
it as my right.
I have said why I hated Hazlitt
Park, but thero was yet another
reason, and one that I know will
sound but foolishly in my reader's ears
—and that was, I believed it to be
haunted.
Not credulous of ghost stories, and
scouting all such ideas generally, I no
sooner found myself within the walls
of Hazlitt than argument and self-
roasonint; fled to the winds, nnd I
abandoned myself to an almost childlike terror. In vain Louie laughed,
Mrs. Hazeldean mocked, and Rose
Meredith gently combated what she
called my sick fancies; nothing would
induce me to sleep alone in the warm
comfortable room allotted to me, and
Louie, grumbling, though not unwil*
Hng at heart, was fain to bear me
company.
It wus Buch a hideously contrived
house: with large gloomy rooms opening into one another, rambling corridors, long narrow passages, with
break-neck steps where you least expected them, and dull sullen corners

And • thon the noises at night! first,
the low interminable moaning of th.

in the yard.
Many a time have I woke Louie,

seemed to proceed from somewhere
by the dressing-room window. Aud
then the wind! not the merry boisterous wind I loved to hear at Sunnyside.
but a dreadful sullen wind that was
eternally howling and moaning round
the house like a lost apirit; a wicked
passionate wind that lashed the poor
waves in its fury, till they beat their
white heads against the rocks, er
•urged back with a low dying moan
into the bosem of their mother ocean.
A deceitful wind, lurking in secret
corners nnd waiting for a spring, for
a mad rush and a cruel whistle, and a
tearing and roaring round the house
like a pack of hungry wolves.
A horrible musical wind, playing
dreary symphonies with tho monotous
sea, or wandering wistfully among the
gardon trees, waking; baby liapinga in
the ivy on the walls; and then a lull,
and whispering again, ominous rustlings and a warning whistle, and then
tho crescendo shriek—the Pandemonium of sound; nnd the band of demon
minstrels have tuned np their instruments and are off again; and they
carry, me off with them, for the wind
is wicked at Hazlitt Hall, and it makes
mo wioked too. It tills me with mad
strango thoughts, till I scarcely know
myself, and, chill with horror, nestle
down to the sido nf slumbering Louie
—of Louie, who stretches out her
warm sleepy arms nnd takes me into
them, while I lio surrounded by her
veil of hair, and tremble and shiver
myself to sleep.
She loves the wind, does Loo; in
her bright waking moments she is
charmed tu sit and listen to it, and
often, in spite of my entreaties, she
will sot open the window that sho nuy
hear more distinctly the fight nf the
blinding surge and feci thu oold salt
spray in her face, or leaning out, track
tho moon's silvery path en the dark
sullen sea.
In her strong healthy nature she
thinks no such thoughts as mine; sho
would turn them into mockery and
trample them under foot, regarding
them as morbid; in her warm vitality
suffering nu shook, but rejoicing in
what she termed "the musical strife
of round."
To my comfort, however, she hated
these annual visits ts muoh as I, alleging as hor reason the insufferable
