NUMBER IG
Politics and Parties.
In noticing tlio chtingi* ot government in tliis province, a nnmhor of
our Eastern exchanges fall into tiio
error of supposing tlmt our protin-
cinl politics nro run upon Dominion
political principles. Some of tiio
Reform journals oven go so far as to
claim tlio change as a victory for
tlieir party, ami an indication that
British Columbia is becoming more
favorably disposed towards Reform
principles, Nothing could lie moro
absurd, or further from the '•faob.
Dominion politics have no influence
whatever upon our local affairs bo
yonil a general desire to act in har-
inony with the federal authorities
us far as they aro acting for tho in
(.crests of tho province. British
Columbia takes very little stock in
tho quarrels whieh agitate the Grit
and Tory parties; but sho is eon-
curncd greatly about any proposals
that iiiiect her own interests, As
wo have only b' representatives in a
house of 212 it is manifestly not our
interest to place ourselves in a position of hostility towards that house.
And tlio people of this country do
not yet seem to havo reached thnt
point of national sentiment where
self-interest would bo sacrificed for
political principle. In selecting representatives for tho House of Commons we do not ofteji stop to ask if
they are Reform or Conservative.
Our aim is to secure tho man who
will most efficiently promote the interests of this province and secure
for us the consideration which our
isolated position unci sparse population demand. It cau hardly have
escaped notice that the representatives from British Columbia usually
support whatever party happens to
hold office at Ottawa.' If tho Reformers aro in power, and treat us
fairly, we are Reformers; if tho
Conservatives sit in authority wo
are Conservatives. We are all things
to all men if by any means we may
secure tho full measure of that to
which wo are entitled. At the present time no person would be foolish
enough to seek election in a British
Columbia constituency because lie
happened to be a Grit, because no
constituency would ever dream of
.electing him. We believe thnt our
representatives at Ottawa should be
independent in politics, mid should
support the existing Government iu
as far as it does us full justice.
Thero was, however, a consideration
in the late local contest which
touched upon federal administration.
The island railway and the railway
lands, throughout the province are
matters in which the federal Government havo an interest, and theso
were mado moro or less prominent
throughout the election campaign.
The peoplo of this province have
boen for yeats demanding tlidt the
railway lands be thrown open for
settlement, and it has been charged
that the late provincial Government's
disagreement with the federal authorities has caused delay in the
granting of that demand. The new
Government goes into jilice with the
avowed intention of endeavoring to
adjust, the differences between this
province and the Dominion, nnd procuring, as speedily as possible, the
opening of tliese lauds to settlement.
So far, thorefore, from the defeat of
tho Beaven administration boing a
causo of congratulation to the Ito
form party, in a party sense, it is
rather the opposite' for it is presumed to promote greater harmony
between this Government and tho
Connervnbive administration now in
oflico at Ottawa. We need not enquire whether tho members of the
no w Government are Tories or Grits,
Thoy are British Columbians, and us
such their concern should be tho
'advancement and prosperity of the
province whoso affairs thoy havo
beon elected to administer.

The tide records of the government
surveyors of British India, covering a
period of twonty-three years, indicate
the existen.ee of a fortnightly tide under the influence of the moon.
The researches of. Messrs. Uichet
and Rondeau indicate that artificial
respiration may be a valuable agent in
thu resuscitation of pcrsmiB who havo
been exposed to cold until life is nearly
extinct.
Mens. Sprint;, of tho Belgian Academy uf Science's, iakes exception to
the generally received view that tho
scat of tho electricity of storms is iu
the moist region of tho atmosphere,
and concludes that it exists in the cold
and dry super-stratum.
Death, in our view, takes placo
when tho action of the heart ceases,
but to the Chinese a person is alive
until the body becomes cold. These
two beliefs may cause estimates of the
timo of doath of any individual to differ
by several hours, which difference has
given rise to somo very unsatisfactory
evidence at inquests in Hong Kong,
tho Chinese idea having beeu unknown
to Europoans until very recontly.
It is assorted by Dr. Merkel that a
person's height fitter a night's rest,
measured beforo rising from bed, is
two inches greater than iu the ovening,
measured standing. On first rising, a
sudden shortening takes placo at the
joints of the logs. The sinking nt tlio
ankle is one-third of an inch; at the
knee, one-twelfth to one-eighth of an
inch; at tho hip, two-fifths of an inch.
The contraction in height is continued
through tho day by the gradual yielding of the arches of the feet and of
tho discs of the spine.
Dr. Framsius finds that the touth
most often affected hy decay is the
third molar, such coses forming one-
half of the total number. The teeth
begin to decay in a certain successive
order, tho lower third molar being first
attacked, then tho upper, then the
lower fourth molar, and so on, the incisors and the canine teeth of the
lower jaw being tho last reached. The
upper teeth are moro durable than the
lower in the proportion of three to
two. The right teeth show a greater
vitality than the left. The durability
of teeth is loss iu light persons than in
dark, and less in tall than iu short
persons. These results were obtained
by an examination of 650 Russian soldiers, of whom 258 had unsound teeth.
Mons. Pasteur has gained fresh
laurels by an investigation of a disease
of pigs known as rouget, or »mf rouge,
which in one valley of the Rhone has
been fatal to 20,000 of the animals
within a year. The investigator has
reported to tho French Academy of
Sciences that he lias discovered tho
causo tu bo a minuto organism, somewhat like that of chieken cholera. It
is different, however, in its physiolog*
ical properties, since it produces no
effect upon fowls but is quickly fatal
to rabbits and pigs. Experiments have
satisfied Mons. Pasteur that one attack affords protection against another,
and by innoculating pigs with organisms weakoned by culture so ns to givo
rise to a mild form of the disease he
hns succeeded in rendering the animals socuro from further liability to
tho contagion.
Middle-aged prejudice is severe
against plum-pudding, but tho London
Lancet pronounces it a highly efficient
food, and declares that a good wodge
of cold plum-pudding is not an unwholesome lunch for young and growing lads when out for a day's hunting
or skating. Elderly people, too, aro
ofton able to partake of this ingredient
of Christmas cheer in a manner which
amazes their middle-aged relations.
The fact is, as has been pointed out by
Prof. Michael Foster, the digestive
elements are long preserved, so that a
man who in tho prime of his manhood
was a martyr to dyspepsia by reason of
tho sensitiveness of Ins gastric nerves,
in his later years, when his nerves are
blunted, and when, therefore, his pop-
tic cells aro able to pursue their chemical work undisturbed by nervous worries, oats and drinks with the courage
and success of a boy.

Mr. Mail-waring, a gentleman living near Sr. George, Out., lms started nn ostrich 'arm. Ho has 0 birds,
all of which were reported well, and
ono of them was trying to hutch out
a brood about the end of January,
when the thermometer stood below
zero. This must certainly havo been
extremely discouraging to tbe ostrich.
Tbe profits of a small ostrich farm
aro very largo, and theVe is no doubt
the birds would thrive much better
in tbe genial climate of British Columbia Minn in Ontario.
The New Policy.
Wo beliovo the now Government's
policy with respect to the graving
dock lit Esquimalt will meet with
general approval. No person in
British Columbia would like to seo
the dock abandoned, for, although
the benefit it would confer upon the
mainland might be scarcely felt, it
would undoubtedly benefit Victoria
and Esquimalt. But the policy whieh
promised to sink half a million dollars of provincial funds in such an
enterprise could not meet with approval on tho mainland. Hon. Mr.
Smitho does not propose to abandon
the dock, but to complete it without
costing the provinco a dollar. Another important feature in tho Government's policy is the announcement that "public works would be
carried on to a much greater extent
than under the former Government."
This is precisely what the country
needs. For many years important
public works havo been allowed to
full into decay, while tho Government have refused to undertake the
construction of roads and other
works where they wore greatly needed. It seems to have beon their one
concern to keep the graving dock
supplied with funds, regardless of
other matters which far moro seri
ously coucornod the progress and development of tlio country. They
boasted of a surplus, which the new
premier declares to havo no existence. What British Columbia wants
is not surpluses, but a fair and judicious distribution of tho revenue
vhere it will do the greatest good to
tho greatest number. From every
purt of tho provinco the tnx-payors
are crying out for public improvements. If tho ordinary revenue is
not sufficient for our present wants,
let the Government borrow funds to
put our provincial roads and bridges
and other public works in a satisfactory condition. Without this we
cannot hope to avail ourselves of the
demand which now exists, and which
is likely to increaso, for the produce
of the country: with it, onr producers and .dealers should reap a
golden harvest during the noxt fow
years.    _^______
Salmon and Salmon.
The fish packing business in this
province has developed to such nn
extent that it has becomo one of our
most important industries. But it
is of very great consequence that the
packing should be conducted in such
a way as to maintain tho reputation
of British Columbia salmon. In the
London Grocer of January 6th wo
notice that while Columbia River
canned salmon aro quoted at from
25 to 27 shillings stg., Fraser River
salmon fetch only from 22 to 24 shillings. The Grocer also states that
there is a steady demand for the
former, while the latter con hardly
be sold at tho lower figures. We
presume the difference in price and
demand arises from difference in
quality, and it would bo in the interest of British Columbia packers
to enquire how far the responsibility
rests with themselves. It is believed
that the quality of salmon taken in
British Columbia waters is quito
equal to that of Columbia River fish,
and the fault must, therefore, bo in
th* made of handling them. It cannot be supposed that all our fish in
London market are of inferior quality, but if evon a few cases turn out
badly the whole batch is condemned.
We believe that while some of our
cannere .take great pains to produce
a firstrolMB article, thero aro others
who look more to immediato results
than permanent business. Fish, liko
uny other meat, must receive careful handling or else it will undoubtedly fail to meet with public favor.
It must also be kept fresh and clean
until it has been sealed in the cans.
Wo are led to believe that somo fish
have been put up on this coast
whicli were not fit for the market,
and we believe that generally there is
not sufficient care in handling the fish
before packing. This matter should
receive tha serious attention of our
packers, so that the catch of the
coming season may bo put up iu
such" a way as to redeem the reputation of our fish. Wo are informed
that nt tho Columbia River canneries fish nre never allowed to be
pitched about as has beoii the practice at some, of tho Frasor cannories.
Careful handling may cost more
money ; but packet's should remember that fish carefully bundled and
pucked bring considerably higher
prices, and that it Is absolutely
necessary to keop up the reputation
of our salmon if the industry is to
be permanently profitable.
High School.
tlemen comprising tliese corporations
nnd the community when we sny
that it is neither asked nor desired
that tlio proposed school should be
supported wholly from tiie provincial treasury. What is wanted and
would be right is that one-half of
the expenses como from that source
and the remainder from tuition fees
pnid by the pupils benefited by the
school, aud that the same rule apply
to the Victoria High School nnd
others wliich mny be established.
We sincerely hope that the prosont
Government and legislature mny see
tlieir way to deal with this subject
in an impartial and effective manner. There is roally no difficulty in
tbe way. Transfer ouo half of the
grant hitherto mnde to the Victoria
High School to.New Westminster,
place tbo old school houso at tho disposal of the trustees for high school
work, so amend the departmental
regulations that the trustees shall
hnvo power to impose the necessary
high school tuition fees, and the
whole thing is done. And the sooner
it is done tho better, for tho present
unequal and unjust system cannot
longer be tolerated.
Three years ago the need of a
High School for this city and the
mainland generally was so great and
the prospect of inducing tjje late
Government to establish one so utterly hopeless that some of our more
enterprising citizens undertook  to
provide the community with facilities for the higher education of tlieir
sons and daughters.   Rooms were
secured   and   furnished,   first class
teachers engaged, and tho result has
been the establishment nnd success
fill career of  the "Collegiate and
High School, New Westminster," an
institution which  has from its commencement taken front rank amongst
the educational agencies of the province.  Tho attendance of high school
pupils has varied from 13 to 26, the
number in actual attendance nt present being 22.  The course of instruction is, we havo reason to believe,
broad and thorough, nnd tho pupils
sent up to the provincial teachers'
examinations have been remarkably
successful.   Tho expense hns been
borno by the patrons of the school
and a few friends of higher education who havo mado freo donations
towards  the   maintenance   of   the
school.  Thus hns been demonstrated
in the  most practical wuy the fact
that such an institution is required
and can be maintained in tliis city.
If 25 pupils have attended tho present school, paying a tuition fee of
$60 per annum,while tho teachers in
the public schools of the city have
devoted a portion of their time to
imparting high   school   instruction
free of charge to pupils who have
passed   tbe entrance  examination,
thus retaining thom in their schools,
and entering into competition with
tlio C. and H. S., how many would
have attended had the fees been reduced by one half, or, as in the caso
of Victoria, had the tuition beeu absolutely free und all scholars who
had passed the entrance examination
been   excluded    from    tho   public
schools 1 It is safe  to sny that in
this enso the attendance would have
been doubled, or as large as that nt
the Viotoria school.. Now, wo claim
that the time has fully come for the
provincial Government to tako this
matter in hand.   Victoria city has
for   years   enjoyed   a   freo   high
school    at    un    expenditure   of,
say, $2,600 per annum from the
general revenue, whilo New Westminster has had nothing.   Now, we
are of opinion that tho first duty of
the general Government anent the
matter of education is to see that
every section having the requisite
number of available pupils should
be provided with a comn.ni school,
nnd that high school education, boing
principally for the benefit of the
wealthier classes, should bo imietcd
but not wholly paid for from tlio
provincial revenue.   And there is
now afforded the Government and
legislature an opportunity to rectify
tho mistake made by their predecessors in attempting to place the maintenance of high schools on tho samo
basis as that of common schools.
The trustees of the public schools of
this city have requested the establishment  of   a  Govornment  high
school in this city, the managers of
the C. and II. S. have signified their
readiness to hand over the present
institution  as  a nucleus for said
school, should it be established, and
the City Council have endorsed and
joined in the request of the trustees.
Wo believe that wo express fairly
tho viows of the majority of tho gen-
SUNDAYJERVIOES.

Washington will terminate in this oity
by tho time theso magnificent boats
are ready for service, and here is whero
they will begin and end thoir trips.
It is thought that one of the boats will,
be used on the route to Victoria and

Moody, each making one round trip,
which as twenty-inilo-an-hour boats
they can readily do."
The Blub Ribbon,—According to
announcement, Col. Hawkins lectured
in this city on Tuesday, Wodnesday,
Thursday, and Friday evenings. Tho
firat two meetings wero not very largely attended, in consequence of the

from coming out. On Thursday evening, however, the Skating Rink was
crowded, and a large number signed
the pledge and took the blue ribbon.
Exclusive of last night wo believe about
70 signatures havo been obtained to
tho pledge as a result of the colonel's
effort!. We are glad to learn that a
number of these wore persons who
have beeu addicted moro or less to the
use of intoxicating liquors, and wo
hopo that this movement may be the
means of saving thom from tho hitter
consequences which bo often follow
even moderate drinking. Tho Blue
Ribbon Club is now upwards of 150
strong, and if its future management
bo conducted with vigor and judgment,
it ought to accomplish much good.
Col, Hawkins has arranged to hold a
meeting in the Skating Rink noxt Sabbath afternoon, at 4 o'clock, to organize a Band of Hopo. All the children of the city are invited to be present, as well as the general public,

Agricultural ExniSmoN* -At tho
meeting held in the Council Chambers
last Tuesday night Mr. W. D. Forris
was appointed President, pro tern., uf
the committee, and Capt. Poele Secretary. There was considerable discussion as to the best means to adopt
for securing a large and representative
committee on the mainland. It was
decided that the secretary should send
circulars to prominent agriculturists
throughout the rural districts requesting them to canvass their respective
neighborhoods and obtain no many
members- ns possible, and to report at
a meeting to bo held iu this city on the
13th of March. It was also uged that
as many as possible should attend the
regular annual meeting of tho society
in Victoria on March 15th. It was
tho opinion of the meeting thnt suoh
alterations should be made at the Victoria mooting aa will permit mainland-
era to become chief officers of the socioty for this year, and control the
management, as the exhibition is to
be held on the mainland. Unless this
can bo accomplished those present believed that the exhibition could not be
carried on successfully. We hope the
surrounding settlements wilt send ns
large n representation ns possible to
the mooting here on the 13th, and also to tho Viotoria meeting on the 15th,

Asylum Report.
The luinual report of the Provincial
Lunatic Asylum foe 1882 has boen issued, and from it wo learn the following interestiiiK particulars: At the beginning of the year there wore 48 patients, 7 were admitted, 3 were cured,
2 diod, nnd 1 was dismissed in an improved condition, leaving 40 innjatos
at tho close of tho yoar, Of thoso admitted during tho year 3 oanie from
Victoria, 2 from Yule, 1 from Lytton,
and 1' from this oity. Tho causes of
insanity were, masturbation 3, domestic troubles 2, epilepsy 1, unknown
cause 1, Of thoso patients 2 woro married and 6 single. The yoar closed
with a larger number of inmates than
has over before been iu the asylum.
Tho espouses of tho institution were
811,190, exclusive of repairs and traveling. Tho average oxponse per capita
was » littlo over $10.60 per month.
The medical superintendent reports
thnt tho institution is over-crowded,
and it has been found necessary sometimes to put two patients in one bed.
In view of the rapid increase in population likely to occur, he urges the necessity of Increased accommodation,
He also recommends that the asylum
be heated with hot air, and that tho
four acres of ground in front be enclosed and put in a state of cultivation
so as to afford outdoor employment
and recreation for the patients. This
last recommendation wo fully endorso,
and we hope the Government will find
the means of accomplishing it without
delay.

boing built in public places and a company is covering the Kremlin with
eloctrio lights. Meanwhile anxiety
about nihilists grows apace, and tho

A New Telephone.
Prof. Graham Bell, the inventor of
tho tolephone, is a Canadian, and tlie
credit of having brought the telephone
down to tho reach of the mossess is
also due tu a Canadian. Mr. Gyrus V,
Stafford, a oitizen of Acton, Ontario,
has invented a tolephone whieh, while
it possesses nearly all the advantages
of the elaborate instrument now universally in' use, is almost ridiculously
simplo in construction when we consider the results obtained with it. It
is merely a hollow, cup-shaped piece
of walnut, two and a half inches in
diameter, lined with thin copper plate.
In the book or bottom of the cup is
inserted a nickle-plated button, into
whioh the connecting wire runs. The
instrument is set into a walnut frame,
and the frame is fastened against the
wall—the mouth of the bowl or eup
being, of courso, in front. The voice
of a porson speaking into one of tho
instruments can be heard all over the
room in whieh is placed the instrument at the other ond of tho wiro.
The cost of manufacturing this simple'
instrument will certainly not be more
than 81, and will not probably exceed
60 cents. Mr. Stafford has secured
paten's both iu Canada and the United
States and already he has orders in
the Dominion alone for 16,000 instruments.

Court opened at 11 o'clock on Wednesday morning. The following cases
were heard:
McKay v. Hay ward. —Action toro-
cover balance due on bricks supplied
by plaintiff for post-office building,
9307. The defence contended that
tho bricks were not equal in quality to
the requirements of contract. The
ease lasted all day, and the jury returned a verdict for plaintiff tor 9250,
deducting only for shortage of bricks,
not for quality. Mr. McColl for Mr.
Corbould for plaintiff; Mr. Bole for
defendant.
The other cases were not defended,
and judgment wns given by default, us

Eoitob Columbian, — Allow me
through your columns to express my
gratification to know that the now
Government has already taken steps to
put on a forry between New Westminster and the opposite bank of the Fraser. As a laud-owner ou thnt Bide of
the river, I know I speak tho sentiments of evory settlor when I say that
sueh a convenience will bu hailed with
delight. Instead of the broad acres
lying uncultivated as they havo boon,
every available aere will bo made a
source of profit to tho owners, as well
us to the merchants and traders of the
Royal City. It is tu be hoped that the
various municipalities ou the autith
sido of tho river will make thoir wants
and wishes known to the Government.
The Scott road, which is tho dividing
line between two townships, wus nevor
a finished job, and as neither township
has the ability to make that n passable
thoroughfare, it in to be hoped that
the Government will tako prompt steps
to remedy the neglects of former administrations in this as well as in other
matters. Patirnck,
A Touching Incident.
At Wigan, in England, there lives a
young lady, now dying with consumption, who for several years has desired
to mako Mr. Gladstone a birthday
preseut,—her own birthday, occurring
on the same day as his own, -but she
never ventured to du so until last Do-
comber, when she made him n bookmark, worked in Bilk, nnd bearing the
words, "Tho Bible our guido," which
Some friend of hem forwardod with
her explanatory note. Some days
afterward she received by rail from
Hawnrden n box containing a very
choice selection uf camelins'and ferns,
and some tine English grapes, with
notes from Mr, and Mrs. Gladstone
inclosed. Mr. Gladstone's was as follows: "I.am greatly touched by your
kindness in hnving worked a bookmark for mo under the circumstances
at which you glance in such feeling
nnd simple terms. Mny the guidance
whioh you nre good enough to desire
on my behalf avail you fully on every
step of thnt journey in which, if I do
not precede, I cannot but shortly follow you."
Thu suicide of the scorpion hns beon
a much-discussed topic The statement is well attested that a scorpion
enclosed in n ring of red-hot embers
will, nfter futile attempts to escape, kill
itself by thrusting its sting into its own
head. In spite of the corroborating
testimony this assertion is often doubted, but a recent observation by Prof.
Lankester seems to establish its probability and throw new light ou the
matter, Having occasion to chloroform a scorpion ho noticed that ns Boon
ns it began to feel the effect of tho
stupefying vapor it made repeated
thrusts with its sting iu a straight-forward direction, but these blows became
gradually so ill-directed and uncertain
that nt last one caused the tip of the
sting to touch the insect's body. In
this case the skin was not penetrated,
but it is easy to believe thnt occasionally suoh a misdirected blow on the
part of a half-suffocated scorpion may
have been seen to inflict n mortal
wound upon the scorpion itself.

The Boston Globe has introduced n
new feature in American journalism.
While the military ball of the Boston
Tigers was in progress at tho Mechanics' Institute hall, some four or five
thousand people being present, the
Globe issued a midnight edition with a
five-column account of the ball, and it
sold readily. Tho entire edition waa
perfumed, nnd. tho delivery clerks appeared at the ball in full dress suits,
Tho venture iii-ids a decided hit.
A dispatch from the Imperial Gorman Foreign office ut Berlin to the
German Consul nt Boston states that
through the inundations last autumn
20,000 houses, 130,000 persons and
150,000 ncres of land and property
have suffered damage in Prussia alone,
and the damage by the December
floods has beon nearly ns great. In
the Bayriche Rheinplatz 1,000 houses
wero swept away and 12,000 persons
rendered homeless.
An enormous public work has just

We beg to call the attention of the
trade and the public to the well-known
quality and elegance of finish of our
Gold'Cases, guaranteed by us to be of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Gold, as. may be
stamped, nnd also to our mode of selling
the same, charging only for the Actual
Wkight of the gold used, and not for
the base metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc. To illustrate
whicli a tag accompanies each one of our
Gold Cases, which plainly indicates not
only the gross weight of the case, but
also the Net weight of tho gold.
In explanation of the above we desire
to say that the old plan of charging for
the gross weight of the case, as if it were
all gold, worked well enough as long as
the manufacturers were content witli thd
amount of brass and steel actually required in its construction: but when the
business was degraded into a contest as
to who should get the most base metal
into the least quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the time name when,
in the interest of dealers iu American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
filau of selling, showing the buyer exact-
y how much Gold each case contained.
To avoid imposition, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
bears our trade mark on both case and
movement. Gold cases are stamped "A.
W. Co,;" and guarantee certificates ae
company them. Silver cases are stamped
"A. M. Wntoh Co., Waltham, Mass.,
sterling silver," and are accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed R. E. Rob-
bins, treasurer. Tho name "Waltham"
is plainly engraved upon nil movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our cases
are frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of other makers and rice versa,
thus affecting injuriously the performance of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, whieh is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by us. It is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to . be a public scandal
that there is.great fraud hi the metal
quality of both gold and silver cases as
now generally sold. We have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold and silver cases offered in tlie market are debased from 10 to 20 per cent,
from the quality they assume to be.
This is a fraud upon the purchaser, and
accounts for the low price at which such
cased watches have been sold.—American Watoh Company, Waltham, Moss.

CHAPTER XXIV.
HADOEtt's GOSSIP.
(Continued.)
Captain Ijadgur rarely forgot a Face,
and invariably remembered h pretty
woman. Ho recognized Ellen tho moment lie saw tier, and, as hu thought,
took in tho whole situation at a glance.
"Oh ho!" said ho to himself, that's
the littlo game, is it ? This is our pattern man, who finds tho heiress hard
to win, I suppose ? By Jove how that
girl's gone off! Jenkins is a brute, I
know, aud hero'a tho confidant como
to tho rescue—littlo notes, agonizing
parting, and till tlio rest of it. It's
fjuito n novel; but I wonder what the
third volumo wiil bo? Uncommonly
lucky I saw thom."
It was curious how often luck of
that sort attended Captain Badger, and
how very littlo camo of it. Once in his
life ho roally liad discuverod a scandal;
but tho discovery, us ho used it, nearly
procured him a horsewhipping. Ou
other occasions without number when,
in his own phrase, ho had "siuelled u
rat," though he had followed up thu
scunt witli his usual keenness, it would
have buen diflicult to sny that he or
any one elsu bad benefited by the pursuit. Still, as his appetite fur such
tuntisetnoiits had incronsed rather than
diminished, it must bo supposed that
ho extracted somo satisfaction from its
gratification. Ho was uot one to keep
his knowlcdgo to himself, unless, indeed, it was to serve somo cud; but in
this instance it suited him particularly
well to let the facts bu known at once.
He fancied that ho had mado somo
way with Miss Hardwicko since Bennett left; certainly she had boon more
like her old self, as lie had known her
years ago, more amusing, aud altogether "in better form." * He hardly
believed that he would ever marry her;
but whether ho did so ur not, it suited
him to be on good terms with her, and
to bo considered at least a possiblo
aspirant. If he could pursuudo hor of
Bennett's delinquencies, tho jealousy
which ho could see was strongly developed in hor character would bo in
arms, and would destroy the romantic
liking which sho had evidently conceived for him, and u point would thus
bo made in his, Badger's favor.
The luck was with him again when,
a couplo of days after his return, ho
tumid Sir Duncan Forbos and Ernest
Hardwicko togothor in the county club
at Stirling.
"Bennett lias left homo already,
hasn't ho?" said Badger, after a remark or two on indifferent topics.
"Yes, his appointment dates from
this week, but he wont a few days
sooner in order to visit some old
friends. "
"Ha, ha! Old friends, did ho say?
So they aro—very old friends indued.
I saw ouo of thom with him nt tho
station."
"What do you mean 1" asked Hardwicko.
"Oil, a girl ho was fund of iu his
sergeant days. Sho was trciuondoucly
in love with him; and I think, you
know, ho ought to havo married her,
but he didn't. I supposo they settled
it somehow."
"And is she living ih Edinburgh ?"
inquired Sir Duncan.
"Not that 1 know of. She married
the riding-master of tho —th, who is a
ruffian; and Bennott, when I saw him,
waa playing the comforter. Thoro was
quite a little scene at the station."
"Was thore 1 When is your trap or-
dered, Sir Duncan V said Hardwicke,
indifferently.
"It should be here presently. Lot
mo drivo you as far as the branch
road."
"Thanks. My dogcart can follow.
Good-morning, Badger."
"They're hit, both ot them," said
Badger to himself, as he selected the
easiest arm-chair and took up a paper.
"Odd what a fuss thoy make about
that follow. What tho douce they see
in him I can't mako out. I'll call on
Laura on Wednesday. Lot her havo
to-morrow to think it ovor. She'll be
Buro to hear it to-night. '
"What do you think of that story,
Sir Duncan?" said Hardwicko, when
the two had driven in silonce for a
short distance.
"I think it's a lie," answered Sir
Duncan, with quiet emphasis; "und if
I could provo it, upon my word, though
I'm an old man, I'd be tempted to lay
my stick upon that fellow's cars."
Sir Duncan was studiously moderate
in his language, but tho tone of that
word "fellow wns moro cutting than
if ho had heaped upon Badger common
oxpletivcs.
"You have very great belief iu Bennett," said his companion, half curiously, half sympathizingly.
"I hnvo known hiin from a child;
and child, boy, aud man, ho has boen
a gentleman—by which I moan a good
deal. Ho has committed his share of
follies' running away from homo was
ono, and enlisting was anothor."
"You can hardly say that now,
"No, perhaps not—though it seemed
a folly at tho time. He was a Ind
opinionated to a degree, touchy, nud
ovor-sonsittvo; but I nevor knew him
to do or Bay a shabby thing, and I
uover heard him say a light thing of a
woman. Putting my knowledge against
Cnptain Badger's, I say again that
story, as he told it, is n lie."
"Quito my own feeling, Sir Duncan.
Bennett's a good fellow—I think you
know why. Ho has been influenced
by good women—his mother, and anothor—ono whom wo both know, Sir
Duncan," said Hardwicko. looking
straight before him and speaking in
jorks, as his wont wns whon much iu
earnest. "I didn't know her soon
enough, I'd had my follies early;
sown my wild oats, a good crop—reaped 'em too. But since I did know hor
I can say, Sir Duncan, that I'm not
ashamed of my lifo. I'm dull, but
I've clean hands, Sir Duncan—clean
hands. I couldn't look her in tho faco
if I hadn't."
Sir Duncan turned and surveyed thu
speaker with his kindly gray eyes. "I
had no idea of this, Hardwicko."
"No, never said so—no use. I know
that. Wlmt waa tho good of plaguing
her? Hoped to bo friends with hor;
hoped she'd da my sister somo good;
wished 1 could do anything worth do-1
ing and tell her some day it was owing
to her—that was all."
"My dear boy, you aro a right good
follow! I'm very glad you'vo told mo
this, and I sha'n't forgot it. Hero wo
art* at tho cross-roads—good-byo."
"Good-bye, Sir Duncan,'' said Hardwicko, turning now and facing him.
Was it because his oyes were moist
that ho had not done so sooner?
"Good-byo again, my dear follow;
God bless you!" said old Sir Duncan,
grasping his hand; and he, too, did
not seem to seo quito clearly for an
instant as he drove off.
"Ho was somewhat silent that night
at dinner, and Muriel fancied he was
tired; but yet ho spoke with all Ins
usual energy when, suddenly rousing
himself, bo called her to his sidu.
"Muriel," said he, "I drove Hardwicke as far as Hio cross-roads to-day.
Wo had some talk, and I was extremely
pleased with him. Ho is a gallarit-
hoartud fellow. I wish if you can show
any kindness to his bister, you would
do so."
"Vory well, papa; but I do not sou
her often.   I don't think sho caves for
a quiot houso like this."
"Sbo cares for hor brother."
"Yos;  they aro   devoted   in each
othor."
""'hen you can reach hor through
him. Tako my word for it, he deserves
hor affection, and sho will he sensitive
to praise for his sake. Sho is a littlo
flighty, I fancy. If you can influence
her, try and do so, I should bo woll
pluaso if you succeed."
"I will do my boat, papa. Mr.
Hardwicko seems vory pleasant, though
his manner is so odd. He is always
anxious, too, about his placo and his
people."
"Havo hint hero, dear, oftunor, if
ho likes to como', I dare say his sister
doesn't sympathize much with him in
these matters. I shall be glad to see
more of him."
Muriel wondered a little what could
have made so great an impression on
her father, but she asked no ruestidns,
and in a day or two invited bur neighbors over, and did her best to carry
out Sir Duncan's injunctions.
Laura, always impressionable, was
delighted with hor visit. Mrs. Leslie
was so kind, so companionable, so
much loss critical than sho had thought
her; and Ernest was so thoroughly
happy, that altogether sho greatly on-
joyed horsolf. Thero had been little
intercourse between tho two houses
during tho anxious months of the Afghan campaign. Laura's high spirits
were unendurable to Muriel in her
long suspense, aud the gravo faces at
Inverallan dumped the gayety which
at Broomieknowe was considered necessary to existence, Tho ladies, therefore, hnd seldom met, but now it
seemed ns though something like intimacy might grow up between them;
and Hardwicke encouraged it by every
means in his power. Thus it happened
that when Captain Badger again presented himself at Broomieknowe ho
met with a less favorable reception
than ho had anticipated—Laura's warm
nature yielding itself completely to
the better influence ascendant fur the
moment. Her replies to a leading
question or two showed her visitor that
her brother had not enlightened her
respecting Bennett's parting with Mrs.
Jenkins, and tho captain proceeded to
tell his tale so far as it was possible
for him to do so. The impression ho
left upon hur mind was that there was
a serious flirtation between Bennett
and a girl, now married, who had given
him tho needle-book of which she had
already heard, and that they were even
seen together iu public in Endiuburgh.
Hitherto Badger's gossip had dono
Ronald no harm; but now at last tho
poisoned arrow was to wound him, for
Laura, indignant and disgusted, took
the first opportunity of repoating all
thnt sho hud heard to Mrs. Leslie.
Muriel listened gravely, and wondered if her father were aware of tho
tale; but her unasked question was'
answered, for Laura concluded by saying, "I spoko to Ernest about it last
night, and he said ho and Sir Duncan
"had heard it, and Sir Duncan didn't
believe it."
"I am glad of that," said Muriol,
her face brightening; "it is certainly
very unlike Mr. Bennett to behavo in
such a way."
"Ernest thinks we hear so much
moro gossip about peoplo in a vory
small place like this; but then what
difference docs that mako if tho gossip
is true? If we wuru in town wo
mightn't know of this;'but for my part
I would rather hear what poople really
nro."
"Yes, if what wo hoar is true," said
Muriel, gently.
"You don't bulievo this then 1"
"I cannot tell, I should bo vory
sorry to believe it, nnd I would not do
so without proof. His mother would
bo torriblygrioved,"
"Poor Mrs. Bennett! I suppose sho
would, though it would not bo tho
samo thing to her as it would to anybody who cared—I mean who might
care—for him."
"Howso? Does she not caro more
than any ono '"
"Yes, of ■ course; but I meant othor
poople—any one he might care for,"
said Laura, coloring brightly, and
thinking Mrs. Leslie rather stupid.
"Oh, you moan some one ho might
love," said Muriel, simply. Sho nevor
used tho roundabout phrases iu which
Laura indulged, lovo being to hor a
thing sacred and unlike all else, and
not to bo described in general tonus.
"If there wero any one," sho continued, "it would bu a norious matter.
I should be very sorry for her. But
as it is, if ho is doing anything wrong,
his mothor'must be tlio chief pefson*to
grieve at it."
"Perhaps, after all, he has  done
nothing to mako a fuss about/' said
Laura,  meditatively.    "Captain Badger may bo making the most of n little*-}
fun."
Muriel looked at her. She had seen
enough in hor Indian .lifo of that kind
of fun, nnd she held strong views
about it. Sho leaned forward and laid
her hand on Laura's nrm.
"Do not speak so, Laura. You
know that, if theio is any truth in
this story, Mr. Bennett is acting unworthily. If ho onco loved this girl
and she fo married, what has he to do
with her now ?"
"Oh, nothing, of course; but thoy
might havo mot."
