The Yale Election.
A few days ago wo laid bare the
littlo Hclicir.e whereby Mr. Humphreys wns to get elected for Yalo and
resume bin place in the Beaven Ministry ns Minister of Mines nnd Agriculture. It was intended that this
should be done suh rosa, so that
Tom might assume fclio giiisu o£ Oppositionist, ' Independent, or Ministerialist, according to oireuinstances
—might, in fact, be all things to all
mon—talk whatever polities suited
1 the company best. In this role
Tom, on arriving at Yale and finding Opposition trump, talked freely
about the "duilbrs" with whom liu
j had been associated in olliee, being
especially profuse in ridicule, of the
, new Provincial Secretary, declaring
that nothing could induce him to sit
in tbo same cabinet with such a
j lump of ignorance and conceit. Still
', posing as un Oppositionist, he select-
i' ed the Colonist as his organ, telegraphing instructions for it to nn-
t nounco his candidature, thinking.
1 doubtless, thus to trail the proverbial
! red hening across the scent. Menn-
} while, buwovor, the local organ,
apparently not fully in tho secret*,
comes blundering out with lhe admission that Tom was to get a seat
and resume liis place in the Ministry. It sounds his praises, tells of
his wondrous statesmanship and
great industry and ability as a departmental head, declares him to be
in evory desirable quality head and
shoulders above any member of the
Opposition,' and concludes by saying:—"Wc sincerely trust that the
Yaleites will return Mr. Humphreys
with a large majority, and so endorse him as to give him a prostign
in taking oflico and returning to
'them for their approval." It was
very stupid of Victoria District not
to havo discovered the rare value of
this 'man. Still worse was it for
Nanaimo to regard as an insult his
^having offered himself for her accept*:
ance ! The public will see now who
the second "livo mainlauder" is that
tho now IVoviuciul Secretary snid
lie had been tho means of securing
as a minister. Tho Columbian let
the cat out, and the Gnardiuu owns
to it. Well, it rimiaitis to he seen
how far Yale will become a party to
iiich an arrangement. The end
.would surely justify the moans, A
cabinet composed of tho two Vic*
oria cousins and Humphreys, and
^Armstrong ! I It was worth while
xorUow Westminster to baiter away
her self-respect for such a ministry.
Jt is not too much to expect that
yalo wilt accept the rejected "car*
)ot-bagger" of Vancouver in order
Unit Columbia may enjoy the honor
and advantage of being governed by
able and illustrious a quartette.
,Wo shall see.	
-        Homing Flgcons*
Mr. W. J. Way, of Queen-street
"West, has made several trials to lent
■ hv Bpeod of homing pigeons. Ou I-'ri-
iiy last Mr. Way sent a lust year's
homing Antwerp, brat by him from
imported stock, to Mr. E. J, It. Penue,
if Kingston, ami that gontloman let
ho bird looso ut about 12 o'clock on
"juiulny. At about 4 o'clock tho bird
trrived in Toronto, making the dis-
imieo, Hit) mill's, iu n littlo over four
tours, This was at tho rate of 40
Jules an hour, a high into of speed for
i young bird. Ton days ago one of
rVtr. Way's birds was released in thu
City of Detroit, and mudo tho distance
torn thoro- to Toronto, 221 miles, in
bas than fivo hours, or at a rato nf
Ver 44 miles nil hour. This bird in
trip from Detroit beat tho fastest
me made by the winning bird at Llio
ecout inter-State races for homing
igoons. Antwerp fanciers of York-
'illo havo arranged for a (lying match
ith young birds, to tako place on the
t {-September. The distance will ho
jout 50 miles, and two priMa a gold-
jndod cant' valued at £12, and a gold
okot value •*"#, will bu contested for.
ho Yorkville match, being limited tt)
io Yorkville birds, is such aa to pro-
Wit Mr. Way from Hying nny of his
o'ds in it, which ho considers hardly
f-ir. His challenges to Ily ohl or
img birds havo uot yut been accept-
m. About the middle of Septomoor a
Butch of homing pigeons fm' a silvor
[i worth §200 will take place under
p auspices of tho Toronto Poultry

A queen bee lays, in tho height of
thu season, from 2,000 to 3,000 eggs
in twenty-four hours.
Tho cultivation of tea has beon tried
in Now Zealand, and tho experiment
is reported very successful in its results.
It is estimated that forests still
cover twenty-nino per cent, of Europe
and forty per cent, of tho vast territory of Russia; Russia's timber includes two hundred million acres of
pine.
A new thermometer, devised by M.
Michclsom, has proven so sensitive in
its experimental form that tho inventor hopes to be able to measure the
thousandth of a degroo -Owitignulo
with it.
The membership roll of the Amorican Association for tho Advancement
of Science embraces a total of 1,(1')!)
names, according to tho latest report
of ita Secretary. Death haa removed
334 members.
M. Carrie estimates that meat triay
be frozoli sufficiently to destroy any
trichinae it mny contain at a cost of
less than a tenth of tx cent per pound.
Ho has strongly urged on the French
Academy the importance of this system as a safeguard against trichinosis.
Thu most northern place in tho
world where ryo and oats mature ia
found in the Swedish province of tTuiT-
boften, at Keugis, 49 miles north of
the Arctic Circle, while the mn'thora-
most limit of corn-cultivation ia at
""villomavara, 9S miles north of tho
Circle.
In a paper on the longevity bf Romans in North Africa, read at a recent
meeting of the London Anthropological Society by Lord Talbot do Mala-
hide, several instances were given of
inscriptions oil tombs of persons tvhosd
age had exceeded .100 years—in somo
cases an ago of 120, 130, nnd oven 140
years having been reached.
Herr CS ruber has been studying thu
sense of hearing in insects. He finds
co(■'•rnaehos, beetles and certain aquatic insects to bo very sensitive to
sounds, while grubs, ants and vanouB
water larvae appear to bo unaffected.
Thu response made by the insects
all'eoted by sound Herr Grubnr considers an indication of true hearing.
Mr. J. G. Jackson, of Hookessin,
Del., has observed what ho believes to
havo been a mist or cloud on the moon.
Ho has been ablu to seo the appearance only tm ono particular evening of
each lunation—when tho moon wns
about sixty hours old. He thinks this
mist is formed nt a particular point
during every lunar night", nnd is dispelled sunn nfter the sun rises on that
part of the moon's surface.
Prof. Tromhult, n Norwogtnn in-
voatignlor, has been studying tho
aurora borealis, and has obtained records from fifty telegraphic stations of
Norway and Sweden which show that
scarcely a day passes without some disturbance on tho lines due to terrestrial
magnetism. Ho is urging tlie establishing of an institution iu Norway
specially fitted up for observing aurorae
and other phenomena of the earth
currents.
It is generally supposed that (lies
adhere to ceilings and perpendicular
walla by virtue of somo sucking property of the feet. In a communication to the Berlin Society of Natural
History Herr Dervifcz presents sumo
facts which seem to disprove the theory and uialto it appear probable that
this power is duo rather to a sticky
matter which may lie seen under the
microscope fo exude from a lly's feet
when walking with its body downward,
Thu heaviest rainfall is stated by
Prof. Loomis to bo found in the rain-
belt whieh surrounds nearly the whole
globe lying between the northeast and
southeast trade winds. From records
collected of .rainfall at sea, Mr. W. J.
Black has estimated the rates per annum for this belt. Tho fall for tho
Atlantic Ocean ia calculated at 133.37
inches a year; for the Indian Ocean,
80.55 inches a year; and for thu Australian seas, 107.9(1 inches a year. No
calculation has been mado fur the
Pacific, on account uf lack of records
from that ocean.
Tho famous American opticians,
Alviin Clark it Sons, of Cailibiidgo,
Mass.* have nearly completed tho lena
for the great telescope ordered by the
ItjiHsian Government for the observatory at Pulltova, thu grinding of the
gloss having now been in progress for
a year. The telescope will bo forty-
five feet long, and tho object glass is
thirty inches in diameter. Equipped
with this instrument., the eminent, astronomer at Pulkova can view tho heavens through tlio greatest refracting
telescope in existence. This glory
will probably bo short-Uved, however,
as the trustees of James Lick's estate
in California will doubtless succeed in
carrying out tho great philanthropist's
instructions to build a telescope surpassing all others in power—that is,
they will succeed so far, at least, as
power may depend upon size.
N. 0. Poison k Co., druggists, So.,
Kingston, express themselves as surprised at tlie side of Burdock Blood Hitters iu that locality, where patent modi-
elites aro hard to introduce, hat, say
they, "tlio gross Inst ordered a few tliiys
since, will convince yuu that the demand
is good, ami Hint it is giving satisfaction
to onr customers."

Tho objection  raised  by the Attorney-General ugainst tbe Judges in
the Esquimau election case is moro
serious und far-reaching in its con
i sequences than may appear at first
sight.    The decision rendered  last
year In the celebrated Thrasher case
was coDsequoetiallya4ccision against
the constitutionality of a Provincial
statute,   i'ho present Attorney-General alleges that in rendering such a
decision  tho Judges assumed a bos-
tile attitude towards  the Government, and are, therefore, disqualified
now to try bis controverted election 1
To carry this theory out to its logical conclusion, once the Judges render a decision even consequentially
adverse to tlie Government, they are
forever nfter disqualified for trying'
a caso to whicli tho Government or
any member of lhe Government may
be a party.    Now, it will hardly be
necessary to point out the inevitable
embarrassment to which such a theory would lead.    Were Lhe Judges
to do their duty without fear, favor
or uQcctioii, there is a reasonable
probability ef all of tlieni becoming
disqualified to try any case lo which
tbo   Government   or   any  member
thereof happened to be a party, and
thus the country would be left with
out the judicial machinery necessary
to tlie administration of justice in a
large class of cases.   What would bo
tbe tendency of snob a theory? Oleai ■
ly to placo a burner in the way cF
justice   being  dono  the  subject as
Ugainst    the  Gove rum ont.    Judges
might be supposed to hesitate before
rendering decisions which must bring
them into hostility towards tho Government and render them practically
disqualified for ihe discharge of their
high duties.    Moro especially would
this bo tbe case if   tbo Provincial
Government possessed tlmt control
over tlio Judges which has been contended for.   Under such condition
the tendency would be to reduce the
Judges to  tbe status of  more creatures in the hands of Ministers who,
if  ono   might judge   from  recent
events, would use them for thoir own
personal  aiul  political    purposes—
thus transforming the Judiciary into
an inquisition in tho bauds of unscrupulous politicians for  purposes of
favoiiiism or revenge,   But very little consideration will show that the
ill consequences of Mr. Hetl'a theory
extend farther still.    "What's sauce
for the goose, is sauce for the gander."'  Every firm, every individual,
has just .(is nmch right as the Government to raise the plea that one
hostile decision will  foievcr after
discjnalify a Judgo to try a case to
which such firm or individual may
be party, and thus would tho whole
machinory of justice   be   blocked.
The  suggestion   conveyed   in   Mr.
Hett's contention strikes at tbo very
sap-root of that noble tree of which
Britons are pardonably proud. Hero
we have the Attorney-General himself,  lie  wIjo of all others should
guard  the Judicial ermine against
the very breath ot distrust, broadly
proclaiming    tbat    because    three
Judges once gave a decision consequentially condemnatory of a piece
of bungling provincial legislation, all
three are at enmity with the Executive and not one of them can be
trusted to try a caso in which the
Govevi.mciit have even a remote interest! "Why, tbe proposition is simply monstrous! It is a gross imputation upon the Judiciary, and but too
woll calculated to disturb public confidence. We say a caso in which the
Government have a "remote interest," because wo contend  that  the
Esquiiualt election contest is not a
Government case.   It is Mr. Hett's
own affair, just as much as his washer-woman's bill would be.   Wc hope
Mr. Hntt does not mean to say that
tho expenses of his defense in Ihfo
caso are to come out of tho public
treasury!
flashed acoss tho continent and
thero wns rejoicing oi* the banks of
the Fraser. .Hut tlie season is now
far spent, nnd yet no visible movement has been mado toward the fulfil mon t of either of these promises.
Why is this thus? Is it possible that
our member is not aware of the fact
that obtaining tbo promise is only
tho first step, that the duty of reminding and importuning tho Government still remains to be done?
Tlio want of the flsh-batcbery is not
so keenly felt at present. Fish aro
vory plentiful, and few people have
sullicient forethought to trouble
themselves very much about a snp<
ply four or five years hence. Yot it
is the duty of tho Government to
look ahead and make proper provision for the future, But with tbe
railway lands it is otherwise. Tho
evil of these lands being locked up
is being keenly felt now,—is telling
feaifully against the best interests of
the country. Our farmers cannot
supply the demand this yea'*, when
there are less than four thousand
railway bunds within tho Distiicfc.
How much less shall thoy be able to
do so next year, with double the
working fo'ce to feed? One little
incident illustrative of tbe lamentable condition of this part of the
country in respect; to home supply:
On Thuisday the writer scorned tho
city in vain for a sack of grain for
chicken-feed. Ho was informed by
several denims that they expected a
supply from Portland by the steamship low about duo! The editor's
chickens are meanwhile subsisting
on rice j Thero ia abundance-of fertile land, and there are many applicants who desire to till these acres;
bub for some unexplained reason, the
Government won't let settlois in,
and so wo must still biing our chicken-feed nnd cattle-feed aud man-feed
from California and Oregon and
Washington■IViitoryj mid still the
impoverish ins; stream of gold flows m

During lost sassion of the Dominion Parliament thb Government promised tbe representative for thia
District; inter aim, tliat a salmon
hatchery would be established on
the Fraser, and that tlm portion of
the railway lands In the valley of
tho Bower Fraser would bo put in
the market.   The  good  news was
OU! or New?
In appearing in court, to prevent,
if possible, enquiry into the validity
of his election, Mr. Altorucy-Ge.ncnd
Hett relied chiefly upon tho plea
that the three senior Judges, being
hostile to the Government, were disqualified to try tho case. Now, as
evory ono knows, the alleged hostility could only exist as against the
old Government. It was with the
Walkem Government the Judges bad
the quarrel, and any hostility thereby engendered could not lie against
the Government of which Mr. Hett
is a member unless upon tho hypothesis that it is the same Govornment under a different leader. But
tho new Provincial Secretary insists
that it is a bran new Government.
If the latter contention be correct
then would Mr. Hett's objection fall
to tho ground, inasmuch as it would
be simply absurd to argue tbat because the Judges were hostile to the
then existing Government, they
must, therefore, be hostile to tbe
present ono, if it bo a new and distinct one. Thus wc find one Minister, to suit his own purposes, contending that it is the same old Government, and wo find another Minister, to suit his own purposes, contending that it is a new Government. Which is itl The worst elements, the dregs, of the old Government vamped, with the addition uf
an element uf treachery and ignorance.
The indications of theTipproaohing aoa~
son seem to threaten an uiiuhhiiI amount
of the Var!oaS forms of bowel conipl.dnU.

months since Cnpt. Pittondrigb made
application to tho department to have

attention seems to hnve been paid t<
the matter. It is tenlly too bad tbat
the Governor-General ntid the Princess

of overcoming the difbcully in so far

ed to punch "John'V head. Joiin
sounded the alarm, and in an inaredi-
bly brief space of time tho Chinese

by n largo and excited crowd of their
countrymen jabbering nnd shouting.
JLtoth ctimhutiints were taken in charge.
Wo understand that a nuuiber_of warrants were issued yesterday against

Tiie irlsli Resolutions.
Although unable to quite realize tho
fitness of tho resolutions relating to
Irish Homo Rule passed by the Canadian parliament during its hist session,
still wo folt, as overy Canadian must
have felt, the gratuitously insulting
bluster of iho London rimes when it
undertook ib read Cnnada a lecture for
presuming to interfere with what in
no way concerned it. It is gratifying,
therefore, to find the St. Jama Qoxeite
taking up the cudgels fot Canada. Wo
have only room for tho following extract. Tho Gazette proceed**! to outline
the retort which might bo made by a
patriotic Canadian, who is supposed to
risk:™
"What is this sin that wo have committed'* Aro we not oitizuns of the
British Empire, then, that we must
never say a word about the conduct of
its affairs '*■ Wo did not tell your statec-
men to mind their own business when
they traltickud with the Americans iu
o'nr fisheries and our island of San
Jttau. Vou should remember that the
offeota of your government in Ireland
reaot directly upon ourselves"; who also
have a (Orge Irish population. * # * ^
The advice wu give may bu iinpalafa-
blo, or it may be wrong; but if "we
havo no right tu give it wo aro aliens,
and something less even than those
Americans from whom you receive perpetual admonition rind rcmonstranco.
* * * * The sphere ruled by our Canadian Parliament, which yVm liken to
that of tho Metropolitan Hoard of
Works, comprehends somo four millions of square miles. What you say
about our utter want of eognato experience springs from ignorance. We
havu prucisely in our French population an experience in governing eognato with yours, and a problem moro
difficult, while tve havo ail Irish clo-
nient as woll,"

Animal Prize Meeting, Ii. 0. it. A.
The ninth annual prize mooting of
the British Columbia Rifle Asaoeiation
took place at tho Clover Point Range,
Victoria, on Monthly and three following days. The weather wns most nus-
pieious, nnd the attendance was large.
The shooting wns most felicitously .begun by Mrs. Cornwall (wife of liis
Honor the Lieutenant-Governor) firing
tho first shot aiid scoi'ing a "bull's-eye
amid the cheers of the spectators. As
is generally the case on tlio Victoria
range, a good deal of wind prevailed
during the meeting, rendering high
[■coving difficult. The adoption of
"military" positions also had a tendency to keep the scores down.
Following is the fist of priKe'-wiii-
1)0! a, from which it will appear that
New Westminster has good cause to
feel proud of her contingent. Ten
men went out'against something like
thirty-five, beating thein on their own

KITH AND KIN.
''Bernard, lot go my band!" suddenly exclaimed his betrothed pettishly.
"What's the use of standing there
glaring at me'I You have frightened
me half out of my senses already. Mr,
Golding, did you bring a cab, and is
Lucy ready1?'' *
She looked hard at bim as sho spoke
as though she would convey some hint
to him by hor -steadfast.gaze. Percy
was far too much embarrassed to be
able to understand any sueh subtle
modes of communicating ideas, and he
replied lamely:
"Lucy—no—why, did you want
Lucy to go ?"
A short, sarcastic laugh broke from
Aglionby, whilo Lizzie's fair faco was
covered with an angry blush.
"Frightened you half out of my
senses, have I ? I'm sorry if that is the
feeling with which my coming, however sudden, inspired you, considering
that we proposed so soon to bo husband and wife Fear is not exactly
tlio emotion a man would wish to excite in bis bride."
Lizzio had snatched her band out of
bis, and, with the angry color yot high
on hor checks, was looking at him,
half with disliko, half with trepidation
—an expression wliich he did nut fail
to remark.
"Now for it!" ho thought. "Sho has
cheated mo alt along, and made a fool
of me. Now I am going to be put in
the position of tho despised and rejeefc-
.f 3d. -Aioou Locd!.suppose I cared for
he*-?" •   * '•    -•   k)
He turned aside, half seating:* himsolf on the edge of a table, and watched tho rest of the scene with a sarcastic smilo of a looker-on; a smilo uncommonly like a sneer, and with a
gleam in liis eyes as cold and mocking
as bad evor in bis worst days dwelt
there. Whatever tho inward progress
toward "sweetness and light" which
bis nature might have mado, little of
it was visible now—indeed, he folt.
nothing but contempt for all three of
them; for Lizzie's double-dealing; for
Percy's dishonest treatment of him,
who had buen his friend; for himself
most of all, and his sublime fatuousness aud credulity in imagining tbat
Lizzie was in love with him.
His last remarks, alluding to "husband and wife," and to a man and bis
"bride, appeared to goad Percy beyond
endurance; for looking exceedingly
agitated, he advanced, stretched out
his bunds, and cried in a portentous
voice:
"Lizzie Yano! The time for playing
and trifling is past. I can bear this no
longer. I never know till this moment
what it is to confront a friend whom
one has deceived "
Lizzie, uot expecting rebuke from
Percy, cast herself into a chair, and
began io cry.
Mr. Golding proceeded:
"Choose between us! To please you i
I havo lived in torment for the hist six I
months.   You know I adore you, and
you have told me you loved me.   You
must "
"She has said she loved you J" said
Bernard dryly. "In that case, it is
perfectly evident she cannot love mo.
If I had known this Booner, Percy—it
is not exactly what I should have
oxpected from 'mine own familiar
friend."'
There was a softer tone in his voice
as lie spoko these worcU, and when he
heard it Percy's emotion's (for he was
a good creature, and honest, when Lizzio Yano was out of the question) became altogether overpowering. In a
choked voice ho replied:
"I know it, Aglionby, I know it. It
is because I loved her so. I wanted to
speak. I wanted to bo fair and honorable. But she said she must dismiss
you herself.   She exacted this silence
.from me, and "
Lizzie was here understood tn sob
out that she had never been so shamefully treated in her life. But hero
Bernard interposed, still speaking in
the samo dry, cold manner:
"There can only be ono termination
to this affair. From tho manner iu
which Miss Yane received mo this
evening, I clearly saw that I was not
welcome, though I was far from guessing tho reason why. Now, Lizzio,
oblige mo by listeuing to mo, and answering inc."
He softened his voice, and took her
band, and honestly tried to look gentle
and conciliating. He could not help it
if bis face looked black as a thundercloud.
Lizzie fixed her frightened, fascinated eyes upon him, half-rising from her
chair, as ho went on: !
"I don't wish to be unjust l.o you.
I wish to know no particulars. Hut
toll me this: let us have an understanding. Do you lovo Percy Golding
here, or do you wish to be my wife V
As he askod this question, with all
the solemnity imaginable, thero was
bnrno into bis mind a keen sense of
the bitter absurdity of the whole affair,
Yet, though it waa aoira timo sinco ho
had cared for Lizzio, he had honestly
and thoroughly believed that she cared
for him, and it was not gratifying
either to his amour-froprt or to the
feeling of chivalry, of gentlemanly
honor, which bad kept him loyal to
ber, when, after looking from one to
the other of them, sbo suddenly darted to Percy's sido, saying in accents
that carried conviction to bulb her
hearers:
"I hive Percy—I am frightened of
you, Bernard. You crush ino when
you look at me in that way, and I can't
marry you—it's no good, I can't, I
can't! Oh dear!"
She cast hor anus about Percy's
neck, laid hor head on hfo shoulder,
and cried heartily again.
Percy was agitated, difitro&sod, but
triumphant through it fill.
. Aglionby folt a singular sensation
piorco his heart. Ho know the girl not
exactly for what sho was, and valued
hor accurately at her true worth, or,
for him, worthlossnoHs. But onco it
had boon different. Ho had never seen
an intellectual nrhighly-cultivatod woman in hor, but ho had soon a tender,
loving girl—atruo and faithful sweetheart. And he looked to finding some
consolation in faithfully, on hfo part,
doing his utmost to make her happy.
As' he saw hor sobbing in Percy's
arms, and recalled her look of blank
terror and aversion, a thousand signs
M*.*g-J«-f«r siLic^c.:>-^.--^rji:',j., ,*:y:i-*t,j--^j.Veva*aa^)
and tokens rushed into his mind, which
went to prove her fear of hiwi, and tho
oppression she must have folt in regard to Mm, It was a humiliating, a
painful, and a saddening discovery.
Ho waited for a little whilo, till hor
weeping has ceased, and she looked up
again, and then Jw SI"d:
"Nothing is left for mo but to say
farewell to you. After what I havo
learnt just now, I cannot supposo that
my opinion i- of much consequence to
yon, but let mo tell you that I hold
you utterly fret* from bjume-— utterly.
Wo both mado a mistake a year ago,
and 1 have been a "blind, conceited fool
all this time to imagine that you had
not found it out- as I had done. My
conscience iu tbo matter is not so pure
that I can afford to whisper even a reproach to you; therefore, Lizzie, will
you consent to shake bands with mo as
a friend; and when Percy is vour husband, will you receive mo sometimes
as His friend ?" .
Sho avoided his eyes, but let him
take bur hand, and say something further to her; aud she murmured something which might bo intended fur
farewell. Bernard looked at Percy,
and hold out his hand to him. Percy
blushed uncomfortably, remembering
his own duplicity in the matter; but
finally tbey exchanged a pressure of
tho hand, and, without speaking, it
was understood that they were stilt
friends.
With a slight bow, Bernard loft the
room, took his small portmanteau in
his hand, let himself out of tho house,
hailed a passing hansom and told the
man to drive him to a certain hotel in
town. A3 ho was driven back through
the same streets which ho bad less
than an hour ago traversed, ho meditated, and by-atid-by the feeling of
pain bo had felt yielded again to that
of cynical and bitter amusement. Boforo ho went to tbe meeting ho wrote
a letter to Mr. Bryco, iu whieh ho informed her:
"Your astuto and worldly-wise
nephew has this evening discovered
thnt he has been mado au utter fool of
—and that by two persons for whoso
intellect, he has often felt and often expressed, great colitompt. Tliat this experience has left him with a fueling of
exhilaration rather than one of depression ia accounted for by the fact that
it is simply the price he has had to pay
for his release from a position that was
loathsome to him. In othor words,
my dear aunt, my sweetheart has jilted
lite, and I am very glad of it. If Randulf Danesdale should happen to call
upon you, which bo i3 pretty certain
to do, tell him this, and oblige ino by
making it very plain to him, for it ia
tho truth, that it was tho lady who
would have none of mc, not I who was
desirous of breaking with hor."
Then ho went to tho moo ting-and
by-aud-by began to enjoy it. He resolved to stay in Irkford until the election should be quite over.
At night, when he went to bed, be
look slock of his own mental and moral
condition, and summed it up thus:
Befooled and jilted by one woman;
solemly vowed to renounce another—
and happier than ho ever had been in
his life.
1 July, more than threo yoars later;
the scene, one of tho front rooms at
the Nurses' Home, Fence Street, Irkford; the persons, a man aud a woman;
alone—he, standing on the hearth rug,
whore ho had been waii ing some two
or three minutes; she, just closing the
door behind her as she came in.
Tho man was Dr. Hugh Wontworlh;
the woman, .Judith Conisbrough,
He was a young-looking man—-oven
surprisingly young when outs considered tho high position he had, and the
really vast responsibilities which devolved upon him. But on looking
mow eloSely, one saw that if ho woro
young in years, yet ho was one of those
mon who were born with masterminds. Ono forgot entirely that ho
was young and handsome, and pleasant
to look upon, so much wero these advantages ovevweighed by the intellectual ones—by the lire that dwelt in
tin? deep eyes, by tho grand sweep of
tho magnificent forehead, tlie mental
power expressed in every lino and
every feature.
Till Judith entered, he had been
leaning against the inauMopieco with
his hands clasped behind him, and his
eyes raised to the dingy-looking ceil-1
ing above, and he heaved a sigh. !
Even those two or three moments of
sorely-needed leisure, of waiting and
inaction, were hardly spared and much
grudged.
He bad not been kept waiting vory
long. In that establishment punctuality and alertness were laws as immutable as thoso of the McdcH and Persians. There was she whom he sought,
walking into thu room, looking different from her old solf, as yon, reader,
have known her, because she had a
whito cap on her head, a black gown,
a white apron of lawn with a stomacher, all edged with little plaited frills of
tlie same material.
"Good-afternoon, nurse," ho observed, holding out his hand.
"Good-afternoon, Wo meet fm* tho
lirst time to-day,I think?'1
"Yes. There is a small nutter of
business which 1 wish to discuss with
you," said ho, and paused.
Sliti had moved nearer to Iho window, and now stood beside it, looking
at him. Then, when the broader light
fell upon ber, <>no saw that tho cap and
apron, the badges of her order, wore
not the only things to distinguish her
from the Judith Conisbrough of threo
years ago. Sbo looked, if anything, a
littlo tailor, possibly a very littlo stouter, and Iter carriage, if not more stately, was a littlo moro decided than of
yore,
Sho looked 11 queenly woman now,
in her garb of nursing mater, just as
sho had formerly looked a queenly woman in hor shabby old L'owns; in her
sorrow, hor poverty, hor, bittor unhup-
piiiGas at Yoresett House, when tho
tiiirse of enforced idleness, nud tlio
grip of a forbidden love, wero upon
her. But her face was changed. It
had altered in the way in which the
facos of women do alter, in whom
heart io as strong as head,
