About China.
As somo prospect remains of this
country booh becoming moro intimately related with China, and chiefly it* mow northern porta, a few remarks may be useful to such of the
reader* of this paper tu have not
had the opportunity of gaining information. Shanghai, the nearest of
the most important commercial cities
of China, stands on the northern
bank of the Whangpoo rivet*. Tho
City of Shanghai proper is mirround-
«d with walls, the streets within aro
very narrow and mostly choked with
foot passengers and traffic; the general appearance of the city is not
very inviting. The concosaions occupied hy England, America and
France art more pleasantly situated,
The American settlement ut Hong-
kew has some very nice buildings for
liusiness and dwellings of the foreign population. The wharf accommodation here is very good; largo
steatnei-s and Bailing vessels can Iny
with safety. discharge und load
whole cargoes. The English concession is pleasant, has it public garden, a very nice promts a tie and a
wide carriage road. The streets aro
carefully made am. kept clenn.
Large offices and public liuihlin^a
remind one of a prosperous 'own in
England ot- America, It lias been
called the '"model settlement." The
government is very sucf-easfully carried on hy a municipal council; the
chairman (pro tem) is the head)
Woosnng, a Chinese walled city;
stands at tho mouth of the river by
which Shanghai is reached, and tlie
bar near that place forms a serious
ohsUelc to navigation, preventing
deeply laden vessels passing either
way. Not moro than 19 ft. t> inches or 20 ft. of water can be relied
on nt high spring tides, A steam
dredge tins been thought upon nnd
may come into operation soon.
Shanghai is a very busy place nnd
it has the advantage of possessing
several dry docks in its vicinity.
Very efficient eliglrmripg establishments, brass and i'-on foundries—■
almost any undurlaki-g common to
an enterprising people—can bo successfully carried out here, and every
day (Sundays not excepted) can bo
heard tho industrious operatives ut
work on both sides of the river.
The Yungsti river is navigable for
■ ocean steamers in tlie summer sea-
ton 1,000 miles from its mouth, and
steamers intending to load the new
season tea can proceed to Html:"-,
or beyond, drawing 25 feet, w
touching at Shanghai or crossing the
bar at Wooaang. There should bo
no more delay than necessary
pushing railway communication
through the noiitliient in this Dominion, It appears that much of
the carrying trade in tea. silk, straw,
braid, and other Chinese produce
would go by this route. Steamers
could leave the Yungsti, passing
through the inland sea, if touch
ing at Yokohama, or through the
straiti of Korea and Tsugar, if by
way of Hnkodadi, and then have
favorable winds chiefly to help them
to Fuca straits. Steamers have
carried 8,0011,1)00 lbs. of tea from
Hankow direct to Loudon. It is
quite possible for much of the trade
now passing through the Suez canal
to be diverted through the Canada
Pacific Railway to the shores of
the Atlantic.
China now has numerous Christian missionaries of various societies.
The China Inland Mission, under
the direction of J. Hudson Taylor,
M. IX, seems to take the lead, with
a staif of 70 missionaries and missionary ludies and over 100 native
pastors, evungelitjts, colporteurs, ifec,
penetrating this vast heathen country from ono exti-euio to the other,
and whose operations commend
themselves to the prayers and sympathy of Christians of all denominations.     Tho   Wesleyan   London

of England are well represented in
the country. The last named has a
tine cathedral in the settlement at
Shanghai. Means of grace abound;
prayer meetings are frequent, and
many earnest Christians are to be
found among the men of business.
The sailors are- not neglected. In
no city is there more earnest effort
made for the souls of these men us
well as for their temporal welfare.
Temperance is well and extensively
advocated in its hulls and Lodges.
It is to be hoped when the trade
has begun the Dominion will use
her influence to ^fppsa U» opium
traffic. A blessing will surely follow any'effort in that direction, and
this country may confidently look
forward to a prosperous future when
the Dominion is made accessible and
open to trade through its wide and
vast provinces by a railway. It
seems a marvel that such slow progress has been made when the attainment of prosperity is within
such easy reach.

ho reluctantly accepted thirty-throe
acres of land. The laud is still owned
by Mr. Loiigwtu'tli, and being in the
heart of Oinolnnatti; is worth f?2,000,-

Another method for the suppression
of Morniotiiain is proposed by Delegate
Mugiuni.t, of Montana. He suggests
that Utah should bo divided, the western part being added to Nevada, the
sou tit-eastern to Colorado, and the
northern to Idaho and Wyoming. Congress* it appears, has full power to
make this division.

friend helped himself to it with the

It is gratifying to Canadians to find
their artists appreciated abroad by
those best able to judge. Letters have
arrived both from the Governor-General and from the I'riii'Hiss Louise expressing in the highest terms the satisfaction with which Mr. O'Brien's pictures of Quebec, painted for the
Queen, have been received. Ono, tite
view from the King's Bastion, is at
Windsor Castle, while the other, the
view of the city from Point Levis, has
boen taken by Her Majesty to Osborne.
Scoville has received a proposition
from a medical gentleman for tlie body
of Guiteau. Ho offers to pay immediately 81,000 of the amount of pur
chase money on condition that he
shall have the body of the prisoner
as soon as tho exactions of the law
have been met, to dispose of absolutely as he boss fit. He agrees to
take the chances of waiting a month
or twenty years for the consummation
of the bargain. The proposition was
submitted to Guiteau. He was favorably impressed with it, but thought
somo other fellow would offer §2,000.
Then he could pay his debts, and if
he got a new trial that miserable Cork-
hill couldn't bring his lot of fellows
to swear how much he owed them.

"Am I My Brother's Keeper?"
The terrible accident which happened on the Fraser river in front
of tins city last Saturday afternoon
brings up again most forcibly the
question of a steam ferry. Two men,
we'll known and highly respected
throughout the district, visit this
city on' public business. When tho
purpose of their visit has been accomplished tlwy prepare to return to
their homes. But tho river has to
bo crossed at the outstarfc, and it
happens that it is obstructed by thin
shoets of floating ice. Every one
acquainted with the circumstances
knows the danger of attempting to
oross in a frail canoe under such
'conditions. That danger was doubtless known to these men; but what
were they to do 1 No person could
tell how long the ice would remain.
It ini^ht go out of the river at any
moment, or it might linger for days
and even weeks. These fanners
wished to go homo to their families
and their farms, and their anxiety
seems to have overcome the sense of
danger. They tako tho only conveyance within reacli, and in less than
an hour after leaving the city their
canoe is crushed by the treacherous
ice and they lid cold and stiff at tho
notlrm of tlie Fraser! Two valuable Hyes nrslost to the country;
two happy homes are made desolate;
two mothers are widowed j and
seven fatherless children weep for
the parents whose voices are forever
hushed in death! It is not too
much to say that if a proper ferry
had been in operation at this city,
as it ought to have been, none of
these deplorable results would have
to bo chronicled to-day. In this
mild climate it rarely, if ever, happens that a kI.cuin ferry could not
crews the river during the whole
winter. The weather for the past
week has been more severe than is
usually experienced among us, and
there is absolutely nothing to obstruct the continuous running of a
proper ferry. Beyo-id tho river
there lie a number of the oldest and
most important settlements in this
province. It is from these settlements that this city should naturally
look to a great extort for hor supplies, and they, in turn, look to this
city us their natural market. But
thero is practically no commir.iea-
tion between the city and the settlements. During tho summer months
fcho facilities for crossing the river
are poor enough and costly enough;
hut in winter, whenever there may
happen to he a little floating ice,
crossing is too dangerous to be
thought of in any case except that
of necessity. It is now newly a
year and a half since a New "Westminster Grand, Jury called the attention of the Government to the
fact that the expensive road system
on tho south side of the Fraser was
practically useless without a wharf
and a steam ferry to connect it with
this city. The Government built
a whurf (in the wrong place) at a
cost of some sixteen hundred dollars, and there they stopped. Thoy
added one more link to the chain,
but ever since have steadily refused
to furnish the last link, without
which the costly chain performs no
useful function. Wo have pointed
out, and the Government must be
aware, that the establishment of a
■team ferry to utilize this road system and wharf would cost the
country nothing beyond the expense
of inviting tenders. We have over
and over again .directed their attention to the vast importance of the
work in order to encourage farmers
by opening up to them the best
markets in which to buy and sell,
But the members of tho Government are dumb, and give no indication whatever that they care for
the interests of the farmers or the
trade of this city. How long is
this state of insolent indifference to
continue 1 Must the people forever
suffer themselves to be the {day-
things of those who aro paid to
servo them ? That there have been
interested persons standing in the
way of the establishment of a ferry
is well known; but that fact docs
not relieve the Government from
responsibility. Tho interests of personal friends and supporters should
never be permitted to come between
a Government and the people, whose
interests they are sworn to protect.
Tho lamentable accident of last
Saturday may fail to move them to
a sense of their duties, but it shall
not bo soon forgotten by the people
of this city and district. The protection of our interests ami the lives
of our settlers are of too groat importance to be sacrificed to the greed
of personal ambition or official stubbornness. The Government cannot
clear themselves from a share of
the responsibility of tho occurrence
which has cast a shadow over the
whole community. These four lives
have been sacrificed to official negligence or perversity, and we mistake
tho temper of the people if they do
not rise up and demand that this
criminal negliger.ee shall coast1. Nor
can those representatives (and journalists) whoso duty it was to urge
the Executive un to action in this
matter hold themselves gui'tless.
In their hands was, iu a sense, placed
the power to compel compliance
with the wishes of the people, in
providing a. safe and convenient
moans of crossing the river. That
power they refused to exercise. Nay,
it is an open secret that somo of
them actually opposed the establishment of an ellicient ferry—preferring narrow selfish interests and
the favor and putrouage of the
Government to the interests and
personal safety of tho people ! These
men and these Ministers must be
prepared to take the consequences
of their criminal breach of faith;
for justice shall be done, even though
the heavens (and tho Government)
fall!
Tlie Steam Fern Petitions.
Not long ago wo mentioned that a
petition to the Governor-in-Council,
praying for the establishment of a
steam ferry on the Fraser at this city,
had been circulated some weeks
aqo amongst tho settlers on the other
side of the river and was being very
generally signed. Three copies of the
petition were circulated in the three
municipalities of Surrey, Delta, and
Langley respectively, and rro understand they have gone forward to the
Governor, bearing the signatures of
nearly every settler in theso three
municipalities.- The following is a
copy of the petition, and an attentive
perusal of it will show how completely
in accord with tho views so repeatedly
presented in this journal public opinion
in these important settlements is;—
THE PETITION.
To His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor
of Britisii Columbia in Council:
May it please Your Honor,
Tho Memorial of the undersigned settlers in the Surrey Municipality, District of New Westminster,
humbly showeth:
That the want of an ellicient ferry
on the Fraser River at the city of
New Westminster is seriously felt, not
only involving great inconvenience aud
loss of time, but also very heavy expense in reaching tlie natural market
for the settlements on the south nido
of the river;
That the absonco of such a ferry
operates materially against tho progress of settlement and agricultural
and oilier development in this section
of country;
That (he establishment of an odi-
cient steam ferry, capable of crossing
teams with their loads of produce,
upon such a liberal schedule of charges
as would tend to foster trallic and not
prove burdensome to the settlers,
would lie a groat public boon, and
promote tho prosperity of the District;
That tho near prospect of railway
construction ori the north side of the
river renders it sfitl moro important
and urgent that greater facilities for
communication should exist;
That without a suitable ferry tho
expensive road system and wharf connecting tho settlements on this side
of the river with tho crossing are practically useless;
That thero is good reason for believing such a ferry can he established
without involving any charge upon tho
public revenue, by inviting tenders,
competition being on thne—the party
willing to accept a charter for the
shortest period, on either a lixed or
sliding scale of charges, to be considered the most favorable.
Your Memorialists, therefore, humbly pray:
That early steps may be taken for
the purpose of establishing an ellicient
ferry at the city of New Westminster,
upon some such basin as that above
idicated. And your Memorialists,
;is in duty hound, will ever pray.

REPLY.
Gentlemen—
I have much pleasure in acceding to
ynur request conveyed tome in your
requisition* that I would allow myself
to be nominated as a Candidate, at
the ensuing election of a Representative to fill the seat now vacant in the
House of Commons. If I should be
elected to fill this honorable position,
I will give my support to the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that my future course of action
may meet with the approval of my
constituents, as it did on former occasions when 1 had the honor of representing you in the Legislative Council
of this Colony. If elected, I will advocate the early completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
I will urge upon the Government
the necessity of placing the Dominion
Lands, now held in reserve, in a position so they may be made available
for immediate settlement.
I will endeavor to show the Government the benefit which would be de>
rived from the extension of the Ocean
Mail Service to the Mainland, and to
obtaining greater mail facilities
throughout the Province.
As British Columbia has not been
admitted to the benefits of the Washington Treaty, I will urge upon the
Government the justice of allowing an
abatement of Customs duties upon all
material required for the Fisheries,
and will ask for an appropriation for
the establishing of Hatcheries.
The Agricultural, Manufacturing,
and Mining interests will receive my
most careful attention, and if the formation of a Commercial Federation of
Great Britain and her Colonies, for
their mutual benefit, should come
under consideration, it will receive
my earnest support.
Owing to the transitory state of the
Dominion, many new questions will
undoubtedly arise: in dealing with
these, I will sec that the interests of
my constituents arc protected.
I am, Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,
Jaa8 J. A, R. HOMER.

will surpass anything seen before in this City.
All orders entrusted to us
in this department, will be
filled with despatch and our
prices will be as low as good
work will permit.
In staple and Fancy Dry

CniNA.--Mr. C. C. Couves was ono
of a party of hardy and daring pioneer
prospectors who, in 50, made their
way up the Fraser as far as Fort Alexander, Becoming discouraged in their
search for diggings, they built a boat
opposite tho Fort, with which they
achieved the wonderful feat of navigating tho Fraser all the way to its
mouth, andcrossiiig the Gulf to Victoria,
Since then Mr., now Capt. Couves,
has been following a seafaring lifo, in
the course of which ho has made fro-
quout voyage* to Chinu, as well as
other parts of the world. He is now
master of the ship pen'set, at present,
loading lumber at Haltings Mills; and
ho ia truly a model master, the discipline on his ship being oqual to that of
the bast ordered family. The paper
on our first page to-day is from Capt.

few days ago to attend the sittings of
the County Court. On Saturday ten
worn anxious to return home, having
concluded the business for which they
camo. But there happened on that
day to be a quantity of float ice in
the river which had come down from
abovo and formed a temporary jam
oppostto the city, and, in the absence
of a steam ferry, tho crossing of tho
river presented very groat difficulties.
Late in the afternoon, near 4 o'clock,
an open space was. observed, extending nearly across. Indians and c nines
w«re at onco procured, and tlm work
of crossing began. Eight of the party
—Messrs. S. Cawley and son, S. Greer,
J. Wilson, E, Thompson and sou,
Chas. Boll, and Win. Frost—reached
tho other side in safety. The remaining two—Mr. VV. L. Gillaudcrs of
Chilliwhack, and Mr. Thomas Lewis
of Sumas —■ had accomplished more
than half tho distance when an accident precipitated them into the water,
where they perished. Thoy were in
a small canoe, manned by two Indiana.
When they had crossed about two-
thirds of the river, tho ice above began to move, while that below the
narrow channel remained linn. The
canoe was caught between tho two
shoots of ice aud crushed in an instant, and hII its occupants disappeared
helplessly before tho very eyes of their
companions on the other shore. Whon
the poor fellows saw the ice coming,
and realized Hint there was no escapd
for them, thoy raised a shout for help.
One of Mr. English's men, who happened to be standing on the wharf, at
once ran for a rope, intending to go
out iu a strong boat with the hopo of
being ablo to render some assistance.
But before he could return to the
river all was over, and nothing could
bo seen of either men or canoe. Indeed the whole terrible tragedy occupied not more than five seconds, and
although there wore a number of people on both sides of the river who
witnessed it, they stood paralysed an
utterly unable to afford any help.
THM DROWNED.
Thomas Lewis was a pioneer Caribc
minor, who settled down to farming at
Sunns about lb' years ago, where he
succeeded in establishing a conifi
abio homestead. He had the respect
and esteem of all who knew him, and
will bo much missed by iho settlers of
Spinas. He was, we brieve, a native
uf England. H« leaves: a widow and
four children, two of whom have
readied maturity, Mr. YV. L. GLUan-
dera was the eldest of a largo family
who came to this Province from Mill-
brook, Ontario, some 10 years ago,
and settled hi Ohjlliwhaok- where they
were all greatly respected. He was
a man of excellent partr,, and soon
took a prominent position iu the settlement. Lust year he was elected to
the honorable poMiiou of Warden of
the Municipality of Chilliwhack, and
it was business connected with some
municipal law suits which brought him
to the Court at this city, last week.
About 4 years ago lie was married to
Miss Woodward, of Nanaimo, and his
widow is left with threo small children.
Both she and tho mother of the de-
ceased are in delicate health, and the
shock which the news of tho accident
must bring will bo uxcoudim-ly hard t"
boar. Telegrams from Chilliwhack
inform us that great sorrow pervades
that community, and wc nepfj not say
that that sorrow is hugely shared by
the people of this city. And with
that sorrow' is mingled a very lively
regret that the means of communication between tho two ehurtia of tho
river at this city are so shamefully inadequate as to endanger the lives of
our very best mon. The bereaved families and friends have our sincercst
sympathies.
Owing to tho state of the river, from
float ice, it has not yet been possible
to attempt a search for the bodies.

(CorreHiioii'loii(;i! of tlio lliltisli C'lhiiiiMiin.)
The melancholy accident by whlcli
two of our most worthy aud respected
settlers lost their lives has cast an unprecedented gloom over our community. The sad tidings were •communicated to tho Rev. Mr. Hall, while on
his way to his preaching service, which
was to have been a funeral service,
occasioned by tho death of tho youngest son of G. 11. Ashwell, Esq. A
large concourse had assembled from
all parts of tlio settlement, ami upon
him it devolved to break the tidings to
the unsuspecting father of tho late
Win. Gillandors, who with his family
was quietly and reverently awaiting
the commencement of the service.
Tho painful news having been communicated to htm, it at once became
known to tho congregation, who arose
to their feet—many weeping; and the
pastor, deeply moved, announced that
ou account of tho painful tidings just
received thei-ervicu would not be held.
Tho congregation dispersed, many of
tho friends at once proceeding to the
Ijoni'es of deceased to condole with tlie
bereaved. A strong feeling of indignation has been awakened in the community against those who have been
most prominent in disturbing tho settlement by legal agitations. It is felt
that it is high time peaceably disposed
citizens should coaso being s'ubjbotod
to inconvenience and risk of lifo in
being called to New Westminster, especially at this season of the year, to
gratify the lawing propensities of a
few contcntiously disposed persons.
Be Couuty Court.
Tho following corrected report of
the case of Kitchen vs. Thompson,
tried at the County Court, last week,
has been handed to us.
The action claimed @i00 damages for
selling a mare for taxes. Inasmuch
as a former caso had decided the ille;
gnlity of the assessment roll, the Municipality offered fair terms of settlement before the trial, which were
refused. Tho only question on the
trial was ns to the amount of damages.
Xo motion for non-nuit was nuule, but
the Judge suggested tliat the plaintiff
ought to bo noh-BUitoU, because the
iil'imt of tlie Municipality was sued—
he being tho innocent party—instead
of tho Corporation. Upon consideration, the Judge thought that, even if
siich non-suit were entered, still the
Corporation could bo sued, and allowed
the suit to go on. The defendant's
counsel applied to have the writ amended by substituting the Corporation as
defendant instead ol theagontKitchen.
This was not granted, but the Judge
remarked that, a3 plaintiff had refused
tho "olive branch," as he expressed it,
he would punish him iu costs, and
gave him but #50, being a part only
of his costs, §25 damages for loss of
uso of niaro, and to have the mare
returned to hiin, or §100 as the value.
iMr. McEhnou was retained to defend,
and we should not have used the name
of another legal gentleman in that
connection.

Editor Columbian.—Your contemporary of the organ has been accusing
you of being the writer of the letter I
sent you some timo ago about the steam

or he would not have thought of such
a thing. Well, whether you wrote it

organ cannot dispute them. Ifc is also
knuwn to the farmers of Surrey how
tlio editor of tho organ came to Hop
ovor so suddenly front an opponent tn
an advocate of the steam ferry. Some
time ngo tlie clerk of our municipality
called upon him to pay for some-municipal printing. When tho money
had been paid tho clerk up and told
him that was the last money he would
ever get from tho municipality of
Surrey, because ho was always in opposition to the interests of tjii ratepayers, including the ferry. The
editor wnq snjn,6whatj taken aback, and

all wanted it, and that petitions to
tho Govornmonfc asking for it were
being signed by everybody ou that

leaving, tlie editor muttered something
about not being too late to change.
And change ho did; for the very next
issue of the Guardian, I am torn, contained an article in which ho said ho
had been waited upon by somo of tho

ho claimed to be tlie champion of the

LOVE AND GREEK.
(Continued.)
Several of the passengers, with
whom they had become acquainted on
tho journey, had wondered much that
they should think of going to such a
little-known, out-of-the-way place,
when Inverness was only fifteen miles
further on; but they began to think
now that even for people who were
neither artists nor anglers Drumna-
drochit might be a charming place in
which to spend asumuier holiday. Had
it rained, doubtless their feelings would
have been different,
A grand scramble for bags aud rugs
—a bump against the pier—many hasty
"good-bye"—then they jump ashore,
and thu steamer is off again, growing
rapidly smaller as they wave their
handkerchiefs to their quickly made
friends.
They turn, and find a wagonette
waiting to convey them to the inn.
.As they drive there, Mr. Dalrymple
remarks that David has shown good
taste in his selection of a hermitage.
"By Jove, I should not mind doing
the hermit myself, for a time, amid
such surroundings."
"In the summer time," said Mrs,
Dalrymple, quietly.
"Don't damp my fervor, Emily. I
should have been spouting poetry in a
minute if you had only let me be.
Instead of which, here I nm wondering what sort of dinner they will give
us at the inn. How is it with you,
Amy I Are you hungry, or has such
a feast of beauty deprived you of all
wish for the ordinary food of mortals?"
**M the risk of seeming unpardon-
ably prosaic, Mr. Dalrymple, I must
confess to being decidedly hungry.
But, do you know, it seems to me that
I liko this better than all that we have
sejn to-day. It is a place to be loved.
I am very glad we are to stay here."
J'Well, I hope we shall not be disenchanted," said Mrs. Dalrymple.
"Our first impressions are so favorable
that I fear disappointment may await
us."
"Now it is your turn, Amy, to have
the wet blanket applied to your enthusiasm. Nevor mind, let us console
each other. We, whose souls are full
of poetry, must combine to quell this
--but here we aro at Drumnadroohit
Inn, It is homely enough; let us hope
it is comfortable."
The landlady, a pleasant-looking
w 'nan, who seemed happy in tho consciousness of always giving satisfaction, received them quietly, and took
them to the rooms which had been
prepared for them. They were very
plainly furnished, but clean and
viting enough; and then the view
would have made up for much.
David Dalrymple was out when they
arrived, for they had not told him of
their intended visit; but had written
in Amy's name from Glasgow to secure
rooms.
Amy had several times felt inclined
to pity this poor man, who had sought
out what he considered a remote and
inaccessible solitude, and whose dream
of peace was to be bo rudely shattered.
She was a little curious, however, to
see how he would take their invasion.
He had ordered dinner at seven
o'clock, so it was agreed that the landlady was to serve up as good a dinner
as she could at such short notice, for
the whole party.
While the ladies unpacked their
things and arranged their toilet, Mr.
Dalrymple Bet out with his pipe in the
direction indicated by the landlady m
that in which he was most likely to
meet his brother.
He would have enjoyed letting the
latter enter and confront the Philistines without .any preparation; but
Mrs. Dalrymple was afraid that David
might in his first surprise say something that would hurt Amy's feelings,
and perhaps have a fatal effect on her
plans. So poor John was sent forth
to break the ice, a task which he did
not altogether relish.
He started with the intention of walking.a long way; but, having taken a
turning to the left at a very short distance from the inn, he found himself
on a bridge with a low stone parapet,
which was such an inviting place
whence to survey the surrounding
hills, that he got no further that afternoon. He sat there ruminating and
throwing stones in the chattering
stream beneath.
Meanwhile David Dalrymple, who
had not taken that turning to the left,
was slowly walking back to dinnor,
grumbling much inwardly at the delay
in his work owing to his unfortunato
accident.
As he approached the inn, Amy
came out e*id went across the road to
explore a little garden and summer
house overgrown with honeysuckle,
which she had seen from her window.
"Confound it all," said David to
himself, "this is too bad. I thought
this place at least was safe from women. What on earth can a woman
want here ? I did think that I had
found one place ou earth where a man
could have a little peace. Well, I
suppose I shall have to move on.
After all, it is not of so much consequence, as I cannot work." He really
seemed .as if he meant to start at once,
without even taking his things with
him; but just then a maid servant
came out and told him that a gentleman had been enquiring for him, and
that the mistress had sent him toward
the falls. Glad to avoid entering the
houso, David turned, wondering much
who'the gentleman might be.
When John Dalrymple heard a footstep approaching, he ceased his pastime of adding stones to the ahead'
stony brooklet, and, turning, saw his
brother with his left arm in a sling.
"What in the world has brought
you here}" was David's astonished
salutation.
"Why, you, of course, old fellow.
How is the arm ?"
"It gives mo a good deal of trouble;
but I think it will be nil right in time.
It has been a confounded nusiance to
me, though. But, I say, John, you
don't mean to tell me that you have
come all this way to lee me, because I
broke my arm?"
"Well, you know, I suppose if you
had I ohosen to break it in the Black
Country or in some other unpleasant
place, rny brotherly affection might
have satisfied itself by writing to you;
but one must travel somewhere in the
summer, you know, so I just thought
I'd kill two birds with one stone."
"But what have you done with
your wife ?"
"Oh, she is here, too. By-tho-by,
did you not come from the inn just
now ? It is a wonder you did not see
her."
"1 saw a young lady," said David,
in a voice which plainly indicated that
the sight was not a welcome one.
"That must have been Miss Summers, a young friend of my wife's."
The murder was out, and fortune
had helped John so far, for it had
come so naturally that it was impossible for David to say anything unpleasant without seeming ungrateful.
He certainly did not seem overjoyed,
but John took no notice, and, looking
at his watch, said:
"Ten minutes to seven—we must
go in. What sort of cooking does that
nice-looking landlady provide? eh,
David?'
"Very good of its kind," said David,
crustily.
"How long do you think of remaining here ?" asked John, still ignoring
the evident discontent of his younger
brother.
"It will depend upon circumstances,"
said David, struggling hard with his
inclination to say:
"Hang it all, John, it's very good
of you to come and see me, but I hud
rather you'd stop away if you must
bring a train of womankind with
you."
Fortunately, just then they got to
the inn and went to their rooms.
Doubtless David consoled himself with
many expressions that were highly
improper, but we shall not intrude
upon his privacy.
Amy found the summer house so
delightful a retreat that she was late
for dinner, nnd did not hear Mrs.
Dalrymple ask her brother-in-law if
they could not help him with his
work; nor his somewhat ungracious
rejoinder that ladies were not likely
to know much of Greek, and that at
his best John had always been a dunce
at it. In the latter part John at once
acquiesced, and Added that ho thought
he could beat the claimant at forgetting.
At the same time he glanced at his
wife with a look of half-comic despair,
which meant: "Your first step has not
been very successful."
But ou Mrs. Dulrymple's face thero
was a quiet smile which seemed to say:
Genius can wait."
Amy came in apologising, and after
the ceremony of introduction had been
gone through, John said:
"But why is it that you are so hurried over this work, David? In the
kind of thing that you are generally
doing a year more or less makes li'tle
difference."
"Yes, but this happens to bo an article for one of the autumn quarterlies, and must be finished in proper
time."
"What is the subject?"
" 'The Drama, Aneient aud Modern,' I am particularly anxious to
work it out well, as it is a hobby of
mine that tho form of the old Greek
drama, with its two or three chief personages and magnificent choruses, is
much better fitted for the representation of tragedy than the ferm adopted
by more modern dramatists."
Amy pricked up her ears at this,
and began to think tliat Mr. David
Dalrymple's researches in the realms
of literature might not bo of so dry-
as-dust a nature as his brother had
made her believe; but she refrained
from saying anything, having resolved
to efface herself, so as not to terrify
this modern hermit.
He continued to hold forth a little
on his favorite topic, and interested
her greatly; but broke off suddenly,
saying:
"You were foolish to start me on
this subject. Tell me about your
journey."
There followed a good deal of the
usual talk about the scenery through
which they had passed, and tho various little adventures that had befallen
them by the way.
After dinner, when the gentlemen
had smoked their cigars, they joined
the ladies in a room which David had
turned into a sort of study. He sat
down to write, while John read the
papers, Mrs. Dalrymple went on with
a novel, and Amy mended some gloves
which had not taken kindly to travelling.
Presently there seemed to be a good
deal of fumbling and muttering going
on at David's corner of the room. It
continued fur some time, and then he
got up, saying bitterly, "This is what
puts me out so terribly:—I want a
quotation; I know half of it, but cannot remember exactly in what part of
the piny it is; and how am I to look
for things with one hand!"
John came ovor and took up the
book, saying:
"Spout a bit, old fellow, and I'll do
my best."
David began to recite what happened
to be a favorite passage of Amy's.
Sho had been watching him for some
time silently, und now: "I know where
that is; let me find it."
It would have been amusing enough
for any bystander to have seen the
result of these simple words. To begin with, all three stared at her with
open-eyed astonishment; then the expression changed gradually on each
face. Pleasure became mingled with
the surprise on David's, as Amy took
the book and quietly found the place.
Intense amusement gradually became
John's dominant expression, while
Mrs. Dalrymple's was one of quiet
triumph, which deepened into something almost sublime as her husband
whispered to her: "You never told
of this trump card!" and she motioned
to him to look at Davy and Amy.
The former had taken his place
again at the writing table, and Amy
was bending over it arranging the
book so that the place should not be
lost, while making some remark wliich
showed David that she was a follow
student not to be despised. They
went on talking for some time, and
David was perfectly genial and natural,
for he forgot tlio woman iu the scholar.
Presently Amy went back to her
seat and continued her mending, but
she was not left long in peace.
"Miss Summers, I fear I must appeal to you again, if you would be so
kind."
In a moment Amy had the book in
her hand, and was looking at him with
sympathy and interest.
