WHari.t-r,** Hernlne, Jan. 9, 1H84.;
Manitoba's Miseries.
It is everywhere admitted tlint
the country lying between the Rocky
Mountain* ind Ontario is fertile
■nd i*ich in resources, The fertility
of tho soil is beyond dispute. But
neitliM* Manitoba nor the northwest
territory is * farmer's pnradiM. The
extreme severity of tbe winters will
always be a great drawback. We
are prepared to admit tlmt tlie
winter climate is exceptionally dry,
and that excessive cold is not felt so
eererely as it would be in this country; but, still, no person cun be
comfortable where the thermometer
stands at 30 and 40, und sometimes
60 below zero. Lust summer tliu
early frosts attacked the wheat, and
a large proportion of it is said to
have been frozen. It is the opinion
of many people in the north-west
that wheat will have to be cut by
the 1st September, whether ripe or
not, to save it from frost. Many of
the farmers are forced to haul their
grain 30,40, or 60 miles to the
railway station, and then sell it for
50 cts. a bushel. This is the price
paid at Brandon, and further west it
will' be less. The freight rates of
the 0. F. R. are so high that buyers
can't afford to pay more. Farmers
are beginning to doubt if it is policy
to endure tho cold and other hard
ships of the north-west when the
result of their industry is so disappointing.

disease of my ear simitar to ulcers, causing entire uoofiioHi,. I tried everything
that could be done through modi-al .-skill,
hut without relict". As a last resort, I
tried Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil, and in
ten minutes found relief. I continued

Tbe Boundary Dispute.
At last it seems that a temporary
arrangement has been made between
'the governments of Ontario nml
Manitoba with respect to the dis
put'd tenitory, Mr. Miller, of the
Manitoba government, has been ut
Toronto for the special purpose of
making this arrangement, and he
■eetus to have been (net in a fair
business spirit hy Mr. Mowut, It
has been agreed that, pending a
final settlement of tbe dispute, On
tario shall remain iu possession of
all tbe territory south uf the Height
of Land, and the two provinces-will
have joint control over the territory
north. It has also been agreed tlmt
the whole question shall ho submitted to Her Majesty's Privy Council,
and the form of the case for submission has been made out in detail,
It is provided thut the case shall bn
ready fur argument as early as thu
15th of April noxt. This arrange-
ment is one of great importance.
The condition uf affairs in the disputed territory has heen such* as
greatly to embarrass the governments
of the two provinces. The regioif
had reached a slate of luwlessuess
which threatened to end in disorder
and bloodshed. There wore two
distinct sets of olKculs, representing the authority of two governments, and they came into constant
conflict. Land titles and mining
claims and timber limits were all
being mixed in hopeless confusion.
The disputed territory is not by nny
means without resources. Indeed,
it possesses muoh natural wealth,
and whs being settled up with considerable- rapidity. The arrange-
just made will placo the administration of this territory on a fail-
basis, and, what is of stilt gieater
importance, it makes provision for
• final adjustment of the dispute.
From the terms of the agreement
It will be seen that they are virtually
the same as Ontario long ago proposed to the Dominion government.
When it wus proposed to refer the
matter to the Privy Council, Ontario expressed her willingness on condition tbat she should remain in
possession until a settlement should
be reached. To this condition the
Dominion government objected, and
hence the deadlock. The agreement
just mnde with M«nttoba concedes
the . point upon which Ontario in-
listed, except that tbe territory
north of the Height of Land ia to
have a joint administration. It is
to be hoped that thero will be a
speedy adjustment of this matter,
end that the Dominion government
will not refuse to ratify the decision
of the Privy Council.

(aiimliiui Pacific Railway.
The San Francisco News Letter of
the 15th ult. concludes a revimv of the
construction of the Canada Pacific, as
follows:-—
''After nil the main question is;
Will it pay'/ Wo think thoro mn he no
doubt that it will. At most the dead
weight the company must carry is the
interest at 0 per ceut. on the $25,000,-
000 first mortgage bonds. That makes
$1,600,000 n year. This sort of dead
weight on tne Northern Pacific will
Boon sum up $4,000,000 a yoar. The
Canadian Company will have §2,500,-
000 a year the advantage of the Northern Pacific ou this item. Lut they will
have still other and greater advantages,
Tho charter forever exempts their
road, stock, depots, stations and laud
for building purposes froni taxation.
This is equul to u gift of gUOO.OOO to
$800,000 a year on property estimated
to be worth $111,000,000 and constantly enlarging. The charter also
gives them a monopoly in binding the
Government not to allow any com-
poting line to bo constructed south of
this one for twenty years. Iu the mat
ter of prospective trallio no transcontinental railroad stands 011 an equal
footing. The Canadian Pnuilio penv-
trates what is said to bu and what will
vory probably prove to be, the bust
wheat region on this continent of so
vast an area. It stretches from Winnipeg westward to the Rocky Mount*
ains, 1100 milos, nud has n width,
without crossing the divide between
Hudson's Bay and the lakes, of it00
miles. No part of our Western Slates
will settle up and develop moro rapidly
than this region us soon us it is con*
nectod by rail with shipping mi the
Pacific and at Montreal. When the
late Earl of Beauonslleld, in u speech
to hia old Buckingham constituents,
alluded somewhat vaguely to this
northern wheat Imd us a future rival
to Iho wheat fluids uf the United States
for the Knglish market; he whs laughed
at in this country; and it was said that
his future Canadian wheat iield wus
nothing better than a land of frost and
ice. But mine recent discovery and
practical tests on a liberal settle in
Manitoba explain that he wan right
aud that more wheat to the acre ami
surer crops nro produced there, ninl
even us fur iturlh us AtlmbaskH and
Great Bear Lakes, limit can he relied
ou in Illinois and Miuimsula. Already
tho .iMiiiiiinljjuns aro picking a (juiiirel
with the Dominion Government because it refuses them an 011:let for
tlieir produce by rail to some purl on
Hudson's Bay. Sootier or later it will
secure that outlet, nnd the Canadian
Pacific wiil bo rich enough to give it
to them. Wo of California ah-.tiiil entertain no jealousy of that great railway tu tho north. As surely as the
Northern Pacifio will create a weal
oity on Puget Sound, so surely will the
Canadian highway oriiate another on
the Straits of Georgia, Theso cities,
with the volume of produce iu grain,
cual, timber, nnd lumber they will
pour into tbo Pad Ilo traiic", must benefit San Franoisco just an the populous
cities nnd countries in Europe benefit
each other. They will trade with us
for our fruits, wines, canned goods,
woolen blankets', blood slock, givinjj
us in exchange their lumber, dull,
gold (rum their usyet undeveloped but
certainly rich and extensive mines, uud
probably bettor and cheaper bacon,
hams and suit pork than we now get
from the Eastern States."

AN APOLOGY.
An accident to the large Campbell
steam power press last week made
it impossible for na to print tlie
Saturday edition of The Columbian.
It was expected the break would be
repaired on Saturday afternoon, and
tbat tlie paper would appear on
Monday. In this expectation we
have heen disappointed, however.
With this number we ismo a supplement whicli, it is hoped, will to
aouit- extent compensate for a delay
which could not be prevented.
Election Tricks.
If any dependence can he placed
on the statements of Ontario news
papers, that province must he fearfully corrupt politically. Day after
day the Globe has been unearthing
acts of corruption perpetrated by
Conservatives, and tho Mail has
been equally busy telling of similar
acts on the Reform side. A large
number of the lute elections were
protested on tbo ground of bribery,
and quite a number of members
belonging to both parties were unseated; There seems to be little
doubt that bribery has been extensively practiced, und it is difficult
to determine wliich party is the
more guilty. During tlie canvass
in West Middlesex lately somo facta
came to light which reveal the tac-
tiea employed. James Weeks was
an active Conservative canvasser.
He came to Strathroy to get the
papera belonging to a certain polling
division iu his township. But
through ignorance of the place be
applied at the Reform committee
rooms under the impression that it
was the Conservative headquarters.
There were several Reformers present, and Weeks, supposing them to
be political allies, disclosed to them
the plans of the campaign. He had
received from some person Unknown
an envelope containing $100, and
stated very frankly that it was perfectly understood this money was
ta be used for bribery. }U even
mentioned the names of the'persons
in his division whom it wus proposed to bribe. At the request of
the officers of the committee room
he willingly signed a receipt for tbe
$100, and intimated that he expected $100 more. Full particulars
of tho whole business were promptly
published ond sworn to by five
persons who witnessed the affair.
The truth of the statement was denied, of course, by tbe Conservatives, but the evidence cannot be
broken. A constable was sent to
arrest Weeks, but he could nut be
found anywhere. We are glad thut
in British Columbia contests are not
fought out on tliis line. It is doubtful if any whero in the Dominion
there is a province where bo little
bribery or undue influence is used
in elections. We hope this may
always be our proud boast.
Dlgli Schools.
Since writing the article on high
schools which appeared in The Co-
U'mman of the 29th ult., our attention has been called to a paragraph
which occurs in the last educational
report for this province. In this report the superintendent of education
(Mr. C. C McKenzie, M. A.(makes
the following observation respecting
the public schools of this city: "The
Increase of one in the teaching staff
of these schools has only partially
met their wants during the year. In
order that full justice should be done
to the educational interests of this
growing city, two additional teachers
should be provided for its schools,
and such a redistribution of classes
and teachers made that the most advanced pupils in them should form a
high school department." We beg
to thank Mr. McKenzie for these suggestions which we accept as an intimation that the wants of our city and
district in respect to this question are
at last beginning to be felt by others
than ourselves. We endorse and
emphasize the statement that justice
can be done to this city only by the
establishment of a high school. This
Is what we have all along contended
for, and what we hope to see realized
during the present season, In order
to show the justice and necessity of
what we ask, perhaps we may be permitted to give a brief history of the
efforts which have already been made
In this direction, After many fruitless
attempts to Induce the late government to establish a high school in this
city, such 4 school waB commenced
in 188 j by private enterprise, under
the management of a committee of
gentlemen representing various denominations. During the two and a
half years of Its existence under that
management It was patronized by
-pupils frisn every district on the main
land, with the exception of Cassiar.
The strength of the school varied
from 13 to 30 in actual alterdance at
one time. These pupils paid $60 ptr
annum each for high school instruction. The. income of the school was
supplemented to the extent of about
$500 by free contributions from a few
of our enterprising citizens. After
continuing in this way for 2% years,
the management considered that, having demonstrated the practicability
of such an enterprise, they had a
right to expect that the government
would take the institution, inasmuch
as there had been maintained at Victoria all the while a government high
school, the whole expense of whicli,
for buildings and teachers, had been
paid out of the general revenue of the
province*. They, therefore, signified
to the public school trustees their
readiness to hand over the school to
the government in order that it might
be carried on in connection with the
general educational department. The
public school trustees thereupon requested the government to establish a
high school in this city, and received
a reply stating lhat the matter would
receive the government's most earnest consideration. There was no
appropriation made, however, for the
school, nnd the managers of the late
collegiate and high school made arrangements with Mr. H. M. Stramberg, B. A., to do whatever high
school work could be done during
the year, pending the action of the
government, at the same time asking
the use of the old public school building for that purpose, This was granted, and Mr. Stramberg continues to
give high school instruction between
the hours of 3 and 5:30 p.m. The
attendance upon these classes has
numbered from 12 to 20, and the fee
paid is S3 per month. Had Mr. Stramberg been in a position to give full
time to this work, it is reasonable to
suppose the attendance would have
been much larger. The present expedient cannot be accepted as a permanent arrangement. Just before the
opening of the present session of the
legislature the public school trustees
renewed their application for the establishment of a high school, and received a somewhat encouraging reply
—encouraging Inasmuch as it showed
that the government were impressed
with the necessity of doing something
in the premises. If the government
are going to dispose of this question
now, as they certainly should do, we
earnestly urge upon them the necessity of settling it in the only way in
which it can be satisfactorily settled,
by the establishment of an efficient
high school in this city. The reasons
why this should be done are becoming
stronger and stronger as the population of the city and surrounding country increases. In the city alone, we
understand, there are upwards of 30
boys and girls eligible for high school
work, and there are a-large number of
others throughout this and other mainland districts who, for various reasons,
would come to New Westminster
rather than go to Victoria, intending settlers of the most desirable class
—those with growing sons and daughters, and possessed of intelligent
views as to the great importance of
a good education-will be prevented
from making their homes in this part
of the province unless the means of
obtaining a higher education are supplied. The reasons assigned for declining to grant public money for this
purpose are fast passing away,
Through the generous educational
policy ol tbe present government the
provision for common school work is
overtaking the requirements of the
country, and the exchequer of the
province is in a greatly improved condition. A yearly grant sufficient for
the maintenance of a high school in
this populous district will produce the
best possible returns, returns which
ought to satisfy anygovernmenl. And
this is what we ask, with such regulations as will enable the trustees to
collect moderate tuition fees from
those who attend.
Royal Columbian Hospital.
The commissioners appointed to
examine tho Royal Columbian Hospital report:
Tlmt they have examined the
buildings and grounds und have
taken tht* evidence of tho doctor,
steward and nearly all tht patients.
Tbe president of tho hospital hoard
said he knew nothing nbout the
hospital except tlmt the expenditure exceeded the revenue in eon
nequeneo uf n lnrge numbor of
"Onderd'jnk" patients being received.
The secretary and treasurer declined to give any in formation under
$10 per day.
The com missioners f ou nd tha
building and grounds in good order
and tbe patients well attended to
and satisfied. The main buildings
are some 23 years old, and being
of wood have doubtless absorbed
many impurities, and should be ro
placed. If this was done they
recommend a site further out of
town, aud that tho present hospital
and grounds be sold lo defray tlit*
cost in part Should thia not be
done the commissioners recommend
that the walls he scraped and whitened and new floors luid; that the
ventilation of the wards Ite increased;
that the "paying patients" ward be
enlarged and the dining-room and
hall finished; that the old out-buildings be pulled down and new ones
erected; and that the "dry earth"
system be introduced. This last is
imperatively necessary as tliny found
that tbe drainage from the closets
passed down into a ravine through
which a stream of water pushes,
which is used by several houses in
town and nlso by cattle nnd horses.
The foundation of tbe new addition
has settled und the building will
require to be repaired. It is also
necessary that a fever ward nnd a
morgue should he built separate
from the hospital und eaoh other.
The remainder of the grounds ahould
be cleared and the patients employed
to cultivate it uccording as their
state of convalescence permits. The
water supply is good, but there is
110 provision in case of firo to throw
over the building. There appeals
to he sufficient room iu the building
and it could uccoinmodate all tho
patients applying at present if more
beds and bedding were provided
and the funds admitted of. More
instruments nre required iu the
hospital.
The system of management seemed
to be defective. The board do not
visit the hospital regularly or hold
their meetings there, and during 1883
appear to have mado only eight individual visit3,4 flora Mr. Corbould,
threo from Mr. Keary, and none
from any other member except one
visit of inspection on the 6th January by tlm board.
Of lute no organized effort has
been nude to increase tho funds of
tho institution. A numbor of patients from the railway works, most
of whom should be paying patieuts,
were admitted, furnished not only
with board uml lodging,' medicine
and medical attendance, but also
with clothes, without the board receiving payment for them, to thu
great depletion of the funds of the
hospital.
The commissioners consider the
government should exercise more
control over the hospital in view of
the largo amount of government
money expended on it, and that the
government agent should be placed
on tbe hospital board.
Your commissioners append a
copy of the evidence taken before
them, and would further recommend
that the secretary and treasurer of
the hospital board should furnish
the government with quarterly state
ments of the expenditure of the
futids of the institution, and thut
his hooks should be open to the inspection of the government agent
at any time,

(Mitel) THE   BRITISH   COLUMBIAN,   Jr.
New Westminster, British Columbia, Wednesday Morning, January 9,1883,
Slaughtering Deer.
The Victoria "Post" tells us
that immense numbers of deer
are being slaughtered through-
nut the province for the sake of
their hides. It learns from a correspondent that during the winters of 1878-79 over 60,000 of
these animals were killed for this
purpose in the districts north of
N'ahaimo. The "Post" asserts
that this indiscriminate slaughter
will soon result in the total extinction of deer in this province
unless prevented by legislation.
11 suggests that the legislature
pass an act during the present
session forbidding the killing of
deer for their hides. If the
"Post" will examine the game
laws it will find that such an act
has already been passed. Section 4 of the game law of last
-cssion says: "Notwithstanding
anything contained in sec. lo of
the game protection act 1878, it
shall be unlawful, and shall his
considered a breach of this act, ti 1
kill deer atanytimefor their hides
alone in any portion of this
province." This law should be
enforced, and if the "Post" or its
correspondent knows of any
cases where it has been violated,
the remedy is at hand.
Mi-uor Licenses.
The "Globe" claims that the
late decision in the case of The
Queen vs. Hodge establishes the
fact that the power to regulate
the liquor traffic belongs lo the
provincial governments and not
to the Dominion. The "Mail"
<ays that it establishes no such
thing; that the point claimed by
. the "Globe" was not involved in
the decision at all. In view of
Ihesc statements it is difficult to
discover where the truth lies.
If the regulation of the liquor
traffic belongs to the provincial
governments, the Dominion act
of last session must become a
dead letter, lt has already been
intimated that in any case the
government of Ontario will resist the enforcement of the Dominion act. If there is to be no
general license act for the Dominion, it will be absolutely
necessary for the local legislature
to revise the liquor laws of British Columbia. Under the present law very great abuses exist.
It is admitted everywhere that
there arc far too many licenses
in existence, and that the restrictions of the traffic are not by
any means sufficiently stringent.
Some of the public houses are
conducted in a way that is disgraceful to the country. Liquor
is often supplied to Indians from
licensed places. Gambling is exceedingly prevalent, and • is said
to be, encouraged openly by
many of the license holders. The
Victoria "Colonist" suggests that
the number of licenses should be
reduced by one half. This could
very well be done without interfering with what are called the
"public requirements" of the
province. We suggest also that
all saloon licenses be cancelled,
and licenses confined entirely to
the hotels; and that the accommodation necessary to secure a
hotel license be increased. "The
amount of crime that comes directly from the liquor traffic in
this province is very large, and
adds greatly to the cost of administering justice. Those who
make money out of this traffic
should be taxed for its results.
The license fee should be raised
to at least $500 in towns, and
$250 in other places. We believe these changes cannot be
made too soon.

Confederate Treasure.
Atlanta, Gn., Dec, 30.— Willie*
county is in great excitement ovor the
discovery of a largo quantity of Confederate treasure, about which so
muoh has been said and written. During n storm this weok a small oak tree
was blown down, about nine miles
from Washington. John Frank, while
riding by, saw something shining, nnd
oxaminud the roots of the true. In
tlie Imi.) left by the tree lie found
almost n peck of gold ard fl large
ijiiantity of jewels and precious atoned
Among the latter were diamonds,
t-ubioH and pearls, and many pieces of
exquisite workmanship, the value of
which has been placed by several eon-
noisHours at 820,000. The belief ia
expressed by nil who have seen the
treasure that it is a part of n lot lout
by the Confederate cabinet during its
flight through this section, ns tho road
upon which this treasure was found
was the same on which the Confederates retreated. The quantity of jewels
and precious stones suggests thut it
must have been the contents of the
mysterious jewelry box entrusted tu
Mrs. Moss and taken from her shortly
afterward by a stranger-, while retreating through the country. President
Davis and his cabinet, together with
a number of distinguished Confederates, Btopped at the residence of
Mi's, Moss, where it is believed the
last council of the Confederacy was
l.niii. When the meeting was over
Governor Breckonbridgo called in
Mrs. Moss, und handing her a box
of quaint device, told her it was of
great value, ns it contained rare jewelry, which had been pawned by ladies
of tho Confederacy for the benefit of
tbo cause, and desired ber to secrete
it until some one with proper authority ihould claim it. When tlie party
rcsuiVd its retreat, Mrs, Mess examined the contents and was dazzled
with the brilliance which met hor gaze.
For sevoral weeks sho kept her trust
a profound secret, and guarded it
from hundreds of men who wero
Me, rcliing the country for the 'oiitaiim
of tho Confederate treasure train,
(tun night a horseman rmle up to her
residence. Alighting ho called Mrs.
Moss aside, and in whispered words
told her that he was the accredited
agent of tho persons who hod left the
jewelry box in her possession. Completely deceived by the man's assurance and nppearanco of honesty, she
placed tho box in his hands, to sen
him disappear iu the darkness, and
to realize next duy that shu hnd buuti
cruelly imposed. She died a month
later. Tha fact that the jewelry jusl
found correspond* so well with the
contents of tne mysterious box lend-,
color to the supposition ihat tbey ant
the samo.
Washington, Jan. 2,— The Solicitor
of tho Treasury waa notified to-day
that thero will be submitted tu him
certain legal questions recently arisen
concerning tho recovery of treasure
aad supplies lost in tho wreek of the
British frigate Hussar in the bottom of
East rivor, just below Pert Morris,
Now York. Tho Hussar was wrecked
in 1780 while on her way to Norwich,
Conn. Sho is supposed to havo had
ou board nearly £1,000,000, intended
for payment of the Uritish troops; also
70 American prisoners chained to the
gundocks. Attempts havo boon made
at intervals for many yoars to recover
the treaauro which it is believed went
down with hor, but on account of the
great. depth, and swift current of the
channel whore the wreck lies, all suoh
attempts have hitherto boen fruitless.
The company now engaged at the work
undertook it nt thoir own expense and
risk upon an agreement with the
United States Govornment that they
should have 00 por cent, of ull money
recovered nud the United States should
havo tho othor 10 per cent., togothor
with all relies of value which might be
found. A legal question has arisen
concerning tho sum of the treaauro,
and it is .to he submitted to ths law >
officers of, tho Treasury. Tho inference
is drawn tbat there is a better prospect
than over before for the recovery of
the money; but nothing is known definitely about it, or ahotlt the nature of
the question raised.

mid waa never fed. During Ihu season lie Ima been allowed to run in the

received tio hay whatever. Hu is the
heaviest mutual, vo believe, that has

for Britiab Columbia.

They have beun most fortunate in sb-
curing an oflicer of great experience

and as he proposed to spend his leave
at Maple Ridge ho has consonted to
take the position indicated, Mr. Lindsay owns a farm at Maple Ridge, uud
his interests lie in that municipality.

Viotohia Statistics. — From the
Colonist we gather the following interesting statistics: The imports nt Viotoria for tho year ending 30th Juno
last were worth 84,010,188, of which
$022,147 came from eastern Canada.
On foreign imports 8798,604 were paid

450, and $8,015 for the Inst 0 months.
During the 11 months ending with
November thero wero issued in the
province post-office orders amounting
to $537,671. The province paid 866,-
000 for inland revenue, besides about
$879,613 for customs, making iu all
$945,613. During the year there have

Missionary Meeting.—The juvenile
missionary meeting in connection with
tho Methodist Church, Mary st., was
held lust Sunday afternoon, Mr. W. F.
Archibald, Superintendent of the
Sunday School, occupied the chair.
The buys und girls of the sohool gave
appropriate recitations and readings,
interspersed with music. Brief ad-
dre&sess were given by the paster of
the church, Rev. E, Robson, Mr.
Jas. Cu lining ham and Capt. Reid of
tho ship Stormy Petrel, lying at Port
Moody. The juvenile collectors returned their cards and collections which
with what was taken up ut the meeting
amounted to tho very creditable sum
of $83.50. The amount collected by
Masters George Wintemute and Herbert Cunningham wore respectively
$22 and $20.10, which speaks w.ell for
the liberality of the community as well
as ths dilligunce of thu collectors.
Port Moony Road.—We are in-
formud thai both the stages made their
-innt trip to Port Moody yesterday,
Tlie road is so shockingly bad lhat the
singe pro - ir etui-.1 have determined to
abandon the route for the present.
There ure several places where the
horses and stages gti down abotit two
fe«t Hi the mud. Nothing is bring
done to the new Clarke road, audit
would seem as if all communication
between this city and Port Moody will
bu suspended until the mad either
freezes or dries up. We are also Informed that the str. Adelaide, which
has bten making trips' between this
city and Port Moody, will nut be allowed to remain on t mt route, as tho
inspector pronounces hot unfit for the
service. We don't know what the
government propose to do about this
mutter; but surely there should be
some arrangement made for joint action by the government and the property holders of Port Moody. The road
has been gazetted, and it is time some
measures were being taken towards its
construction, as was suggested by the
Columbian some time ago.
Police Court.—Ou Thursday Mr.
Jno. Mclnnes, of the Union Hotel, was
brought before the polico court ou a
charge of permitting gambling on his
premises. Tlie case came up bofore
Messrs. W. J. Armstrong and AV. D.
Ferris, J. Ps. Mr. McColl appeared
for tho prosecution, and Mr. W. R,
Armstrong, instructed by Mr. Edmonds, for tho defence. A person
named Miller swore ihat ho had rented
the premises from Mclnnes for 8 or 10
days, dining which the gambling is ul
leged to have taken place, and thnt
Mclnoss had nothing whatever to do
with it. Tho gambling was done iu the
premises on Front st. The charge
against McIuiicb was then withdrawn,
and an action entered against Miller,
whieh will como up next Tuesday
morning. Ou Friday Jas. Ibbotson
came up charged with (1) boing drunk
in an Indian house, (2) breaking into
au Indian house and stealing, (!l) and
supplying liquor to Indians. Ibbotson
was found guilty on thu second nnd
third charges aud sentenced to one
yuur in jail, with hard labor, Tho sentence seems to us a vory proper ono
under tho civcumstnncu.

Notwithstanding the wet weather and
the muddy roads tho number present was
so large that seating accoimnodutiou iu
the commodious new school house was
far from being adequate, At 7 p.m. tea
was served. The good things provided
by tho ladies were such as to satisfy the
most fastidious epicurean. Ample justicu
having been done to tbe inner man, the
entertainment began with a "Greeting
Soul'" by tbo choir. The chairman, Itov.
W. IJ. Seccombo, followed with a brief
but humorous speech. An Xmas carol
was then sung (Mrs. Seccombe at thu
organ) in grand style. Jennie Trombath's
recitation, "Over the Kiver," was followed by a recitation from Edith Weatcott—
a five year old girl—who introduced herself as being "two feet six in bur stocking feet," and elicited a storm uf up-
plaiise. A song dialogue, "Has iny

was loudly applauded. Miss Isaac's
recitations—"MyOwu l'Iuce"und "What

"Jack O'llazeldcan," by Mrs. Seccombo,
was enthusiastically applauded. A dialogue, "The Fortuiie-telle■■," by Miss

From Okanagon.
(Correspondence of tlio Columbian,)
Okanagon, Dec. 26.'—In a late
issuo of This Columbian there appeared an editorial on tho Land Regulations Act, which has created considerable interest among the stuck raisers
of this section. No ouo for a moment
will contend that large areas of arable
land should bu benight by monopolists
for speculation, thereby preventing
numbers uf immigrants from becoming Bottlers, and thus retarding the
progress of the provinco. But arable
lands and grafting hinds shuuld have
individual legislation, as enoh has its
uwn province. Fur the information
of those who have not visited the
interior, it would bo well to state that
grazing lands can be utilized for that
purpose only, being entirely foot-hills
and mountain sides, consoapiontly not
adapted to agriculture. Should such
land have restrictions similar to low
agricultural hinds, uud stock raiders be
prevented from acquiring sulliciunt
for the support of tlieir uuttlc, a deathblow is struck at this industry, and
fallowing will bu tho rum of those
engaged in it. It is to be hoped that
should a bill be brought beforo the
house concerning tho sala uf wild
lauds, the interior members will
thoroughly ventilate the subject, so
that it will nut endanger the interests
of tho stock-raiser.—Notico of application has buen made for the construction of a narrow gauge railway from
thu head of Okanagan lake to connect
with the C. P. R. at or near Shuswap
hike. This in a step in the right direc
tiuu and meets with tho approval of
all, In-iii-' of more vital importance
than the proposed canal, iu that it
will bo a winter as well as a summer
highway. Whon constructed it will
inestimably benefit thu Okanagon valley, and to tho boundary line, and
develop a largo acreage of excellent
lands which could nover be profitably
utilized, and will plnco them on almost
equal footing with those along the
C. P R. The promoter, Mr, Lumby,
is sanguine of success, and with
English capital to do the work. When
tho 0. P. R. is completed and this
railway constructed, and its factor the
Okanagon lake enlivened with steam,
this portion of B. C, will take precedence tu California as the sanitarium
fur the weak, thu resort uf the pleasure-seeker, and the haunt of the
angler and sportsman; its sunny skies
and bracing air, lovely landscapes,
magnificent'.Jakes and streams, and
abundance of game being unrivalled.

Port Haney. On the evening of the 28th
December wc, among others, -were at the
hotel. We had spent money very freely
for a few days previously, and the bartender had been taking it just us fast as
he could. The night being wet and eold,
we asked to stop all night, but the bar*
tciidei said, "This is a saloon; you can't
stay hero; we keep no person; got no
beds; got out of here, you tramps; this
ib no place for you," We begged to he
allowed to lie on the tloor; but no, we
were forced out into the storm to perish,
or come what might; no dillcrcnce to
the saloon-keeper. Thia was about 11
o'clock or a cold, stormy night, and wo
must certainly have perished had it not
been for the kindness of a settler who
took us in and sheltered us. This same
hotel keeper is applying for a license at
Fort Hammond, We think the licensing
court sbould not grant a Hi-uor license to
a man who treats people in that manner.
If our case was the only one of this kind,
we would remain silent; but on the night
of the 17th November, a wet, cold night,
Henry littrk and Patrick Hicklcy were
turned out at 11 o'clock, with no place
to go to. lt was pitch dark, cold and
wet. Wo hereby testify, by signing our
names, in hopes to warn the public und
licensing court against such abuse.—
Yours truly,
Henry Burk,        Patrick Hioklrv,
Jno. Fitzgerald,   John Brown.
[We did not intend to publish the foregoing letter, which was received several
days ago. Mr. Stevenson has asked for
its publication, however, and it appears
now at his request.—En.]
Editor Colombia*.—Thero appeared
in your issue of January 2nd an item
referring to a letter purporting to have
been signed by us, complaining of bad,
treatment received by us at the hotel'
at Port Haney. Now, we desire to
state that such communication was entirely without our authorization, and we
wish further to state that tho treatment
we received at the abovo mentioned
place was all that could have been desired. John Fitzgerald,
John Brown.
Port Haney, Jan. 4, 1884.
In regard to the above article, we have
to Btate that wo were not iu Port Haney
at the time mentioned, and know nothing about it, ami that we never sent or
authorized to bo made any such statement, und that any such is entirely false
so far as we aro concerned.

Surrey Roads.
Editor Columbian.—-In your issu? of
the 22nd inst. appears a letter from
"Fair Play," of Clover Valley, under
the heading of "Surrey Roads," "Fair
Play" claims that the distance from
New* Westminster to the boundary line
at Semiahmoo Bay is loss by the coast
meridian Hue and Yale road than via
the Semiahmoo mail; also that 2*^ miles
of the coast meridian road was finished;
also that there were about "Jil settlers
located south of the Nicomekle river on
the Kensington Prairie. I have made
enquiry from parties who were engaged
in the construction uf the Semiaumoo
road, aud also made careful measurements from the olliciul map, and I find
thu length of said road from Brown's
Landing to the iron post at Semiahmoo
Bay dues not cxeeedjlij miles. "Fair
Play" puts the road,via the Vale road
and coast meridian Iin a ut nearly IS
miles, still he says that is the shortest
of the two. Of the iM miles of the
coast meridian said to be finished, I am
informed that three-quarters of a mile
was submerged during the late freshet
to a depth of 4 to 5 feet, nnd I have
waded knee deep over said road through
ice and water abuut the end of January
lust, and such is a common occurence in
winter. Of the 20 settlers upon Kensington Prairie, I challenge "Fair Play'
to name half a dozen actual settlers, m
men who had made improvements. As
tho rest of his statements arc on a par
with the foregoing I shall not tako up
your valuable space in referring to them.
I had the privilege of a hasty perusal
of the second letter of "Elector," published hi the Mainland Guardian, hut as
1 could not obtain a cepy of that paper
here, I am at a disadvantage in replying
thereto, As far ns my memory serves mc,
ho disputed the correctness of my statements, iu regard to the source of the
$100 expended this season upon the
Johnston trail, aud also at regards the
distance from Mud Bay being shorter
via the Kirkland and Scott roads thnn
via the Johnston trail. In regard to the
former, I have yet to learn upon reliable
authority that Mud Bay has had a fair
share of municipal expenditure. Tlie
Johnston settlement pays in taxes about
"fiiO or S00 per year, including road tax,
and Inst year received $*225 at least, and
this year $400, nnd rumor has it that
"Klcetoi-" himself applied for $100 more
this fall, nud yet he must needs write to
a newBoaper and accuse .Mud Buy people
of scllishness. The distance in dispute,
as near us I havu been able lo ascertain
it, from Woodward's cornel's to
Brown's Lauding, as follows: Woodward's corners to Scott road, ,,-\ miles;
Scott road to Brown's Landing, 1\; total,
III.; miles. Woodward's corners to, John*
ston trail, I mile; Johnston trail, 4\
miles; Vale road to Brown's Landing,
iU miles; tut.il, lOtf miles; and yet "El-
cctor" blames tuc for untruth. At all
events, Mr. Editor, I da not leave a
chance to *-aildIi- my statements upon
any one else, ns "Klcctor" does. 1 do
not intend to indulge in scurrilous personalities, but 1 will remind "Klcctor"
that his cry of "Stop, thief" will apply
best to himself, uh ho was the lirst to
cry out aud that most loudly. Aynin
thanking you for your indulgence, 1 um,
truly yours, John Ouveh.

NEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Hawahdes, Duo. 27.— Congratulations tiro pouring in upon Gladstone
from all parts of Great Britain, upon
his birthday anniversary,
St. Johns, N.F., Dec. 27.—Advices
from Harbor Ornoo stato that an
Oraugo procession yesterday, whilo
passing "ship's Head, was Srod upon
by a crowd. At lirst thd Orangemen
thought tlio tiring was from powder
gum oarried hy their friends, until
they iaw their men fall,   Four men
■were killed—two' Orangemen and two
Roman Catholics, Eight aro reported
mortally wounded, and eighteen to
twenty slightly. Head Constable Doyle
ia among the wounded. There is a lull
in the outbreak at Harbor Grace, but
the neighboring town of Curboiieai- is
in n state of tho wildest frenzy. Ovor
1000 men ure parading un the streets
and preparing to march upon Harbor
Grace, Crowds are hurrying up from
the whole extent of the country ubout
to tho scene of tho disturbance. All
the business places are closed, and
most of the private residences are protected by bars and bolts. Police dispatched from St. Johns reached Harbor Grace last night. If the riot breaks
out. anew the law officers will ho powor
less to protect lifo nnd property. It is
rumored that the govornment has
cabled to Halifax for troops and a war
ship. If the Carbonear contingent
marches into Harbor Grace the result
will be terrible to contemplate,
Montreal, Deo. 29.—Judgment has

PiTrsBUBO, Dec. 29.—In accordance
with resolutions adopted at the lust
meeting of the Western Nail Association all factories in tho west closed
down to-night for a period of Bix weoks.
Manufacturers hope to improve the
trade by restricting production. Tlio
suspension throws over 0000 men out
of employment.
Paeis, Dec 20.—It is reported
that the French loss in killed and
wounded in the capture of Sontuy was
thirty-six officers and nearly 1000 men.
Tho loss of tlie Black Flags in the samo
battlo was 6000. The Black Flag
army, aftor its defeat at Sontuy, retreated to Hong Hoaand Numdish.
Tlio Froncli found two million dollars
in Sontay. It is reported also that
China, acting under the advice of
European powers, has withdrawn her
troops from Bacninh. It is stated that
no offer of mediation between Franco
and China will be accepted by France
until Honghoa and Bacninh aro occupied by the French. It is understood
that Premier Forry inspired tliis statement.
Nkw Yo&k, Dec. 30.—A cable special to the Tribune from London, of
December 29, says: The delay of the
Chinese authorities in announcing
what they mean to do, on account of
tho fall of Sontuy, encourages the
Fronch to believe that they can carry
thoir agurossions to any extent without
meeting with resistance. Tho French
exultation over the capture of the
evacuated citadel has reached a point
of insanity. One journal has proclaimed that Sontay hus wiped out Sedan.
Semi-official papers immediately began
repudiation of thoir former positions.
Europe is now told that the capture
of Sontay puts mediation out of the
question. France cries unt to Europe,
"Hands off!" nnd demands an indemnity from China, us if that empire were
already defeated. Fiance threatens to
seize Hainan, Formosa and other
Chinese islands, unless China instantly
submits to her demand for nn indemnity. Less respectable journals express a hopo of tho decapitation of
Tseng, if China resolves to disown his
diplomacy. Premier Ferry's intention
tu annex Tonquin is all but openly
avowed. In spite of reiterated pledges
Premier Ferry and culleugues seem
convinced thnt it is safe tu bully China
and Bcizo its territory. They expect
that treaty powers will look on quietly.
Ministerial journals' in Paris arc instructed to say that England acquiesces. English journals meantime
steadily denounce tho French policy as
dishonest, and reitornto thoir warnings
that no interference with treaty ports
will be tolerated, and openly manifest
sympathy with China. The Sun's cablo
special from London, uf December 29,
says: Tho smell of gunpowder had tho
customary effect on Franco. The capture of Sontay developed thoroughly
her usual spirit. The mediation uf
England is rejected, nnd China is informed that if her troops bo proved to
have fought against tho French flag at
Sontay she will havo to pay a large
war indemnity. The project of seizing
some portion of Chineso territory for
guaranty uf this post-future penalty,
has already su far Beized upon tho
French imagination thut tho projected
occupation of tho island of Hainan is
confidently discussed. Marquis Tseng,
meantime, with his wife is at his home
on the cliffs near Folkestone, looking
out across the channel toward Boulogne, und conjecture is divided as to
whether tho ministerial councils whose
decision he awaits will openly declare
war, or prefer a continuance of the
present plan of peace in public and
acrive hostilities in secret.
Kew York, Dec. 30.-P. T. Barnum
seems to consider his lifo work accomplished, for he has just made his will.
In order that there might be no question as tii his sanity on whicli to ground
contests after his death, hu had eminent physicians oxumine him, and seemed their certificates that he was uf
sound mind. The will and its codicils
cover more than 700 pages of legal cap,
closely written, and disposes of real
estate and personal,property valued at
ten millions, to twenty-seven heirs.
Tho properly is iu Now York, Brooklyn, Bridgeport, Colorado, and several
other places. Mr. Darimm values his
interest in the Baruimi and Loudon
shows at SH,500,000. His bequests
for charitable purposes nre numerous
aud largo. Airibng the beneficiaries
are the Ohaptn Hoine, Children's Aid
Society, Old Men's and Women's
homes, the society tu assist males aud
females over Itl of this city, the Bridgeport orphan nsylum, the Bridgeport
hospital and other Bridgeport societies.
Mr. Barnum also makes provision for
certain charities by bequeathing to
them a stated percentage of largo annual profits accruing from his shares
in his shows. To the city of Bridgeport ho secures the only water front
not already seized by private corporations, with a dock upon it, costing
§-'10,000 for twenty-one years after his
death, during whicli time his executors
aro forbidden to sell or lease it.
CAIRO, Dec. 30.— Rebels attacked
Gezireh, eight miles from Berber, a
garrison town consisting of twu companies uf Bnshi Bazouks who repulsed
the assailants with heavy loss. Tho
Egyptian loss was slight. Tho rebels
intended tu attack Berber, but were
thwarted by the.dofcat,
Sr. John, N. F., Doc. 31.—The excitement has somewhat abated over the
affair. Following is the latest version:
-The Orangemen walked out on St.
Stephen's Day and got as far as the
turn at Paddy McGrath's houso. The
band was playing "Boyno Water,"
whon thoy were met by a mob and told
to como no further but gu back. The
Unman Catholics wero arranged in
lino. Constable Doyle wus shut down
as was also Patrick Callahan nnd in nn
instant off went a rattling volley from
sevoml guns. Four men fell dead and
14 woro badly wounded, The rest of
the Orangemen fled abandoning scarfs,
flags ana banners. Young Fat Per-
mody tore thi flogs into itripi,   Ho
was fired- at* ey a-gang, of-men nnd
wounded. Wltflh the Orangemen went
down into city they began breaking
windows in tho houses of Catholics and
tearing down shutters. Thoy stopped
the horse of McDonald, the Roman
Catholic bishop. Later in the day,
while ho was visiting the wounded mcii
at Bear's Cove they attempted to throw
him over a precipitous clitf, but were
prevented by Father Rowe, a herculean
Irish priest, who inflicted severe blows
on the head of one of tho assassins with
a leaden handled whip and dispensed
the rest. The bishop und Father Rowe
wore escorted the remainder uf tho
journey by the mounted police.
London, Jan. 2.—Lowell has retired
from tlie Rectorship of St. Andrew's
University, to which he was recently
elected. Lowell states that his resignation is owing to the difficulty he
would encounter in properly discharging his duties of Rector, in view of hia
position as Ambassador of the United
States. His resignation is greatly regretted by his supporters in the recent
election and by tho officers uf the University,
Toronto, Jan. •!.— Ropu.-ts* from all

WrasxrEQ, Jan. 3.—Thermometer

Montreal, Jan, 3.—The St. Lawrence river lias risen about three foet
and now is causing great inconvenience.
In the lower,part of tho city all manufactories on Mill Btroot stopped work
as tlio shops arc being flooded. Six
hundred mechanics will bo thrown out
of employment until tho wator subsides. The press rooms ure filled with
water.
Cairo, Jan. 4.— Relations between
England and Egypt are strained. Egypt
sent a note to Great Britain pointing
out the present state of affairs. Egypt
continues asking for final settlement
uf the Suuduu question. In caso
England refuses the assistance asked
for the khedivo and ministry are determined to abandon to Turkey eastern
Soudan and to reduce tho Egyptian
tribute to tho Porte. Egyptian troops
will thon bo concentrated iu Egypt
proper., thus giving a force of 15,000
men to protect the fruntier without
any English army. Evelyn Baring
thinks 15,000 men insufficient for that
service.
New Vork, Jan. 5.—Henry Villard
made nn assignment to-day for the
benefit of his creditors, to \Vm. Endi*
cott, Jr., r-f Boston, aud Horace Whito,
of New York. No accurate statement
of his assets, however, are obtainable

New York, Jan. 6. —At the Northern
Pacific directors' meeting the action of
tho directors in ordering the completion of the road .is most important.
To-day the whole subject was placed
in the hands of tht executive committee, who will immediately carry out
the wishes of the hoard. This action
reverses the contest which has beon
going un ever since Villard's election
as president. Before hia accession the
Northern Pacific management, after
thoroughly examining tho subject,
agreed upon Tacoma as the western
terminus. Villard's indtntity with tho
Oregon Navigation company led him

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
"It sounds badly told like this, but
perhaps it waa natural. He loved me,
lie wished tti call me his own, and to
put it beyond the power oi man to
separate us; but ho knew also that to
avow this marriage would be to forfeit his inheritance and blast bis hopes
in lifo.
■' 'Wo must wait, Rose,' ho said,
ladly, on tho morning of his departure; 'wo must wait, even if it be for
a year or two;' and knowing the urgency of the case, I assented without
t murmur.
"But troubles fell thickly on me
after ho was gone. First Mrs. Hazeldean began to turn against me, tu
taunt and weary me, to Iind fault with
iny nursing, ami tu chafe at every
word; patient endurance but fanned
the lln mo, and day by day tho barrier
grew wider. I knew what it was, that
she had learnt to distrust me, to fear
the influence of my locks, and to
tremble for Philip; and when tho
mischief was done and past remedy
lha began to see how ahe could bost
rid herself of me.
"Then it was that I unconsciously
met her views half way. 1 solicited
leave to visit an old school-follow who
had beun fnr some years married tu a
French Protestant minister, and was
living in one of tho quietest suburbs
of Paris; gaining hor consent I sot
out, and it was well I did, fur sick in
body and weary in mind, 1 was surely
in need of the advice and sympathy
of some good woman. I wanted comfort and I wanted rest, and Kusalio
gave mo both.
"In that prim little white-washed
houao  in  the Rue de L , I met
with friends who watched with mo in
my trouble, and consoled and coun-
seled me; who, liko the good Samaritan, pouring in oil and wine, bouiul
up my wounda and led mo gently uu.
"And sn, before many months had
passed my boy was bom. Ah] you
start. Nellie; but (hoe ib a little grave
in tlK corner of tho cemetery at Paris,
marked by a tiny cross j and there they
have laid my hoy, who for only sis
weeks—six delicious blissful weeks-
was to look at me with his father's
eyes, and nestle with his baby lingers
upon my bosom.
"Ah, my luiby! he was too beauti-
f'*' to live, and when they showed me
him in his coffin, with the whito rosea
mid lilies lying nu his breast and in
his crumpled bunds, -md gavo ma the
little curl of silken hair, I thought
my heart would break, I felt I could
not give him up, but 'Rachel weeps,
and they are not'—and day by day
mothers lay their tirst-boru in the
Master's arms, in thu sure hope—joyful thought!-—of one day receiving
thom back again their childless bosoms.
"Sudden!;. ;n the first dark hours
of my grief I received a summons
home. Mrs. Hazeldean wus worse
and not oxpected to live, and Philip
wrote to me in great anxiety that I
would set out as suou as possible, that
I might be with him at the end,
"I had not seen my husband then
for nearly a year, and the thought of
our speedy reunion was the lirst thing
that roused mu from my stupor, ami iu
an incredibly short tipiice of time I
arrived at Hazlitt.
"I had informed Philip of our boy's
death, and n-dhiug could exceed the
mournful tenderness of hia ureuting,
and the earnestness with which he
strove tn comfort mo during those two
months uf suspense and anxiety during which we watched by his aunt's
sick-bed. 1 had nothing to complain
ut; he waa nll and inure than I could
have wished him to be.
"But there came a change, Mrs,
Hazeldean awoke tu lifo, and Philip
rejoined his tegimet, and for two whole
years I never saw his face again. 1
marvel now how I could havo borne
that separation—I who loved him so;
but I beliovo my very love gave me
strength to endure, and there was
something of latent prido too iu my
nature, for I would rather have died
than have urged him to avow our
marriage contrary to his wishes and
interest.
"I began to feel that if he could
tolerate this lifo I would not he the
first to cnmi'luiii. It behooved me,
however, to ba careful iu those days.
With Mrs. Hazeldoan's return to
health, her old distrust and jealousy
of me came back fourfold. My life
begun to be a burden to me; unnatural restraints were imposed upon my
freedom, and, worse tnun all, when it
was possible to find a pretext for my
absence, I was debarred from sharing
Philip's visits. Often and often I
wus sent tu town on somo frivolous
errand which detained me a week or
two, and on my return found that he
had been there and had left, grievously distressed at my unaccountable
disappearance.
"It was on" one of these occasions
that he met Madeline Laurence, Yes,
just when his love for his wife was
beginning to weaken frum protracted
absence, he was expoied to the wiles
of the most beautiful nud seductive
woman of her time; ho wns weighed
iu the balance and found wanting.
"It was an awful trial for Philip,
and ho came out of it with wavering
faith, with a heart well-nigh broken,
The passion of his manhood had tnvul-
lowt-d up thu passion uf his youth,
aud when I returned tu Hazlitt I
found nothing but the ashes of his
love, and him a moody, discontented
man. He had censed to love me; day
by day the bitter evidences of the
truth were before me in his altcrud
tone and looks, in bis fitful humors,
his brief nnd distant letters, whilo
every visit widened still more the
awful gulf between us.
"That awful gulf—alas, poor wifo!
how I sought to bridge it, how I wept
and prayed, and wrestled in the agony
of my soul, till my beauty was dimmed with tears, and he began to murmur at iny altered looks—nay, even
to regard them with aversion.
"At last the time camo whon I
■trove uo more, when I was dumb
with anguish, for I knew thon that nll
was lost, thut he had not-only ceaswl
to care for me or tu wish tu claim mo
for his wife, but that tho chain galled
lum to madness, that ho would never
risk his inheritance; nay, more, that
he would have given it all tu have
been rid of me, onco and forever.
"You weep, Helen; so did I once,
before I went down into lhe burning
fiery furnace; but thero my tears wero
all dried up,    ""■-• T ■"
„v-. mi to ill Uuium, imd nothing but
baby hands havo hold me back from
the deadly deed, And then came a
calm, when my prayers were answered
—not as I wished them to be, but better and diviner far, when the black-
iiess nf darkness was lifted off my
soul, when I accepted my fato with
patience, when I took courage, and
thanked God for thu light.
"Then it was that I regained something of my lost influence, when Philip
lie longer turned awny with aversion,
but suffered me to be his friend; when,
in his milder moods, hu blessed me
for my lovo; when ho turned to me
in his troubles nud I could shelter nnd
savo hiin. I had outlived hope tliei
ns I deemed I had outlived love, till
the sight of his bruised and bleediir
form this morning showed ine my mistake. Many waters quench not love,
Helen, and though I have been an unloved, neglected wifo for more thnn
thirteen years, my affection for Philip
Hazeldean is ub truo und deep as it
ever was when he wooed and won mc
in thu dear old times of yore."
Here a feeble voico calling to Rose
induced her to brenk off, and coming
back in a little while she urged me
affectionately to go to bed, saying that
Philip had asked her to sit beside
him, and that she had now no lunger
uny pretext fm- detaining me.
Being nothing loth, 1 was soon por-
suudud, and after stealing a last look
at Philip, who stretched out his band
to mu with a grateful smilo, I groped
my way across the passage in thu etiill
gray dawn, and was soon happily
asleep in the great brown bed.
I was awakened next morning by
a hand drawing aside my curtain, and
blinking my eyes open drowsily, I became awaro of Louio standing beside
mo in her traveling dress.
"What o'clock is it, Louie, and
where are you going?"
"It only wants an hour to noon.
How soundly you have slept, child!
If I had nut succeeded in rousing you,
I should either havo h>Ht my train or
been ubliged tu go without bidding
you good-bye, which I was very unwilling tu do—came, shake yourself
up, 1 want to speak to ynu,"
"Do you moan tu say you aro going
heme nnw?"'
''Yes, this is the time we arranged,
you remember, and Bruce promised
to be ut the station to meet us."
"But you are leaving me behind,
Louie!"
"Of course I am; I have been thinking a great deal about it, and this is
what I have finally decided: first, that
you, and uot I, shall remain behind;
I think, considering what has just
passed, that it will be butter taste,
and on the whole more pleasing to
Ruse; secondly, that if Philip continues to progress steadily, that you
need nut stay more than throe or four
days; of course, if he he worse, or
other circumstances occur, you must
judge for yourself, but you hnd botter
let me say, Nellie, that I expect yuu
hume nn the third day from this."
"Don't you think Rose can spare
mo before thai?"
"I have no doubt she would to-day
if you asked her, but I think it would
be kinder of you to remain. Lastly,
on nu account prolong yonr stay, for
if the old lovo is ever to bu rekindled
in poor Philip's heart, he must be
left alone to the tender ministrations
uf his wife, and must learn to depend
un her and her alone for the future."
There was so much delicacy as well
as tact in Luuie's arrangements, that
I made no opposition.
It was, I knew, iU muoh self-denial
for her to leavo tho poor invalid iu
whom she took so deep an interest us
it was for me to banish Bellish thoughts
and let her go alono; so I only charged
her with a few household messages,
and promising to follow her advice,
and let future circumstances guide mu,
Buffered her to say good-bye.
Ruse's "thank you," when I informed ber a few hours later of my
prolonged stay, wns quiot aud heartfelt; and though she still insisted uu
bearing the whole burden of the nursing herself, and never let me relieve
her, even for nn hour, yet I soon
found my presenco was a comfort to
her, and her silent but rare caresses
spoke mure volumes to me than any
other woman's words; but I could not
help her having a hard time of it.
Po;ir Philips irritable temper could
ill brook the confinement and suffer- j
ing, aud though he struggled against
it, his impatient words aud restless
murmurs ut his weakness must have
tried his gentle .nurse to the uttermost.
But she never complained; though
her nights were nearly sleepless, uud
her struugth day by day move sorely
taxed, sho never varied her low soothing tone, she never spoke to him without that smile upon her face, and then
sometime-- her patience would be rewarded.
Sometimes when we sat together in
tho failing light, talking in whispers,
so ns nut to break in upun his dozo,
ho would suddenly call her by name,
and ask her to cmnu and sit by him
and tell him uf thu dear old time when
they were young U-gother, when he
loved hur nnd knew her for his own,
before he and the world grow mad
and wicked together, und Madeleine
came, to destroy bin heart uud life with
her wild beauty.
And ltose would fall cheerfully into
his humor, and nan-ate many it merry
scuiio ef h.tig ngo, boyish exploits
long forgotten by him, but hoarded in

What I suffered you
may guess when I tell jiiu that in
ono brief summer und winter my hair
tunitd (fray, like it ia now.
"Tlwro wore timet when I thought
I waa (*oin« mad, when wild thuuguti
of ridding Phillip of hi* life-long burden by unjustifiable menus rushed
through my brain nnd in tide nm -chill with
horror, Tliriot* hnve I mints down lo
tho gt't-ut tea, thii by uhflit twined io
lui „
her simple faith—dating lier.datrong
ftsitrt and esoapoa marvellous tn thein
then, till tho paltf'Hjm eontraoted into
a nm lie, and a weak laugh followed
the fancies nliudiud eo'ijured up. And
sometimes nhe would speak tu him in
other wise; would tell him of the
little grave with the tiny cross gleaming in the moonlight, of tho dead
hoy with his fnthor'f. eye.*, whom she
hnd named with liia futher'n nuiiie, nud
who had quivered out his btiliy life
upon her liosuui, with his check pre-mud
close to hurB.
Then I'lii'ip would put up his trembling hand nnd pray her to stop, and
kiss her hurriedly, and bid God bless
her, in n broken voice, for that ho was
not worthy of her, and never had
been, and ahe a saint of heaven
Sometimes from a hidden seat I
could see hiin lie and watch her with
shaded eyes na alio sat 111 tho fire light,
whilo the leaping flames made a halo
round hor cim white face nnd silvery
hair, ami shone upon her folded
hands.
Thou ho would speak to her in an
awe-struck, frightened tone, and tell
her nnt to let hiin die, fur lie meant,
if ho lived, to be a good husband to
her, and to mako her happy, and that
they would go away somewhere, where
his aunt's cruel WpttU could never
wound her moro.
Ahl us the days wont on it was
easy to seo that rumoreu was working
in poor Philip's heart—but whether
for lasting good was yet to bo proved.
