Foisoiih wlio retul tho Victoria
Standard need not be told tbat for
neat)/ a year it lias been denouncing
the govern m end for giving away the
provincial dry-dock. Almost as
many times u there are days in tlio
year this charge has been repeated,
and the Standard hus howled and
ranted in tho most approved form.
Some people really began to believo
that the dook had been given away,
and one of the ministers thought
it prudent to assure the house that
the dry-dock would certainly not be
taken out of the country at all.
When it was stated that the federal
government had agreed to leave the
dock at Esquimalt and finish it, and
pay the province $250,000 for it,
the Standard declared that this was
mere political clap-trap—that the
province would never receive thut
sum, A little Inter it wus unannounced thut, in addition to the
$250,000, the federal government
had consented to recoup the province for moneys expended on the
dock up to the time when it was
handed over (some $90,000); the or-
gau again warned its readers not to
accept any such improbable state-
- ment. In the course of time $130,-
000 camo from Ottawa as n first
instalment of the dock money, but
the orgau denied the receipt of this
amount and reiterated its former
declarations that nothing would
ever come to us for Iho dock. On
Wednesday tho organ went on a
new tuck, In big black letters it
asks the momentous question, "Is
the Dominion to pay British Columbia $250,000 for the Kaquimult
Graving Dock?" Now, the putting
of that question might imply a doubt
in tho organ's mind, but in the article which stands undor this immense head wo find no doubt expressed. On the contrary, it is
accepted us un undoubted fact that
tbo Dominion government have
agreed to] pay this province ut least
$200,000 for tho dock. Not only
so, but the Standard now endeavors
to make it appear that tho federal
government are paying too much for
His dock/ It says the dock has cost
British Columbia only $209,635,
and that we aro taking advantage
of tho Dominion to the extent of
over $40,0001 This discovery and
admission do much credit to the
head heart of tho organ. If the
dock is worth only tbe sum which
has actually been expended ou it,
the Dominion government must be
extremely foolish to throw awny
$40,000. But we have been accustomed to read in the Standard thut
tho dock is a most valuable piece
of property—a perfect bonanza,
from the revenue of which the province would certainly grow rich and
fat. The government have been
abused without stint for ever daring
to part with thu dock, and especially for giving it away at the actual
cost. If the Standard were consistent it would uow compliment
tho government upon having made
a good bargain, and selling tho dock
for $40,000 moro than it cost. But
it doesn't do this ut ull. On tho
contrary, it charges the government
with dislionosty, aud thinks the
$40,000 should be returned to tho
federal uutliorit.es! Perlia:n it
Bhould. The people of British Columbia would rather return $100,-
000 of tbe dook money than take
back the dook. Tho giving up of
this great provincial blunder was
one of the most statesmanlike acts
of the present government, and they
are surely entitled to all the gieat-
er credit if they succeeded in making a, bargain better than anybody
in British Columbia believed to be
possible.	
Cheat Things.—"Fifty yean ago,"
aaid Karl Cairns at the meeting of tho
Church Missionary Society, "if a man
had been shipwrecked on some of the
islands of the Pacific, he would havo
been killed, cooked and eaten; whore-
as if a man was shipwrecked thoro now
ho would receive aChmtian hospitality.
Miu Gordon Gumming, who is not
A mituionary, and who did not write
for the purpose of crying up missions,
declared that while in 1835 tho people
of Fejee wero citimibala, thore are
now 400 churches and 1,400 schools
there. Lady Brainy writes that anybody who wants to aeo the last traces
of heathenism in Japan had better go
toon, as they are rapidly giving placo
to Christianity." j

And the longest walk is euiU-,1;
One stitch, uml then another,
And tlio .urgent rent is mended;
One brick upon imotlier,
And the highest wall is made;

And tho deepest snow iu laid.
So the littlo coral-workers,

Havo built those protty islands
In tho distant dark-blue ocean;
And tho noblest undertakings
Man's wisdom hath concoivcd
By oft-repeuted effort
Have been patiently achieved.

Two citizens, not very old,' woro sitting in a railroad oflico tit Milwaukee,
says Feck's Sun, talking about coming
entertainments, when onu said:
"Let's go up to tho Female Cullogo
and witness tho commencement exorcises, Thero is nothing I like bettor
than to see girls whu are just budding
into womanhood, and to listen to tho
ideas thoy advance in their addresses,
which are far beyond their years."
Tho othor man pulled ou his cigar a
few times, while thoro was a far-away
look in his eyes, and finally said:
"Not any female college for George
Augustus. Not none. I guess I never
told you my experience at a female
college. Several years ngo I lived in
Chicago, and I had a cousin who was
attending a female college a Bhort distance from the eity, und on a Saturday
I went up to the college to see hor and
put in the day. You wouldn't think
it, to seo tne now, but iu those days I
was a regular mustier. I wus not exactly a dude, but I was got up regard-
loss, with white linen pants, white
Hannel coat and vest, a Panama hat,
linen over-gaitors, a high standing col*
lar, and cutis that camo clear down to
the ends of my fingers. My cotiBin
was glad to seo nio and sho was
a daisy, aud it would bu well for you
not to forget it. Tho other girls were
all glad to sue mo, for it was not often
that a livo male man was allowed to
visit them, ft seems that tho teachers
had all gone to Chicago ou a shopping
expedition, and tlio girls wore on a
tear; that is, they wero in for fun, and
I was u godsend to them. I met my
cousin in the reception room, and the
girls came iu, two or three at a timo,
to bo introduced, and before 1 knew it
thoro wore tifty of thuiu around me,
aud I novor felt so good in nil my life.
I felt a good deal like tho dude iu tho
opera of 'Patience,' whore nil the girls
yearn for him, and I wouldn't havo
sold out for 50 cents, or would have
oven given myself away.
"First, a beautiful blonde girl wanted mo to allow her to draw a picture of
horself on one of my cuffs, and I
thought it would bo all right to lmvo
her picture thore, whoro J oould see it
constantly, and I gavo hor a commission to paint it; and then another suggested that thoy blindfold mo and fix
mo up for company. I thought it would
be all right, and so they tied a handkerchief around my eyes, nnd made
me promise not to take it oil' until thoy
fvo mo permission, Well, for an hour
sat there and allowed them to do
what they pleased with ino, until I got
bo nervous I oould hardly sit still. I
could feel tho touch of a gentle hand
on my neck, whilo there wna au occasional snicker among the girls, and
after a while they took tho bandage oft'
my eyes, and I lookod at myself iu a
mirror. Well, I was mad enough to
bite ovory girl iu tho room. About a
dozen girls stood around with paint
brushes and thoso boards that painters
run their thumbs through, nud mix
paints on, and they had* painted designs all ovor me. First one of them
had painted a black moustache on my
lip, with term cotta ends, and n sky-
blue imperial on my chin, pointed with
yellow. Thoy had painted n picture of
a golden-haired girl on my white shirt
bosom; my high standing collar had a
mule drawing a dog-cart; my cuffs were
ornamented with two fighting roosters:
and my wliite punts looked liko u circus bill representing Daniel iu the
lions' den. But my whito coat was tho
wowt. You havo seen tho door of a
country paint shop, where thoy try all
tho colors of paint. Well, tho buck of
my coat looked like tho door of u paint
shop, only tho artist hud got tho colors
on iu tho shapo of a plucquo, in tlio
center of which seems to bo a lost dude
looking around for a wagon track to
follow off. (Ih, if 1 could liavo got out
of thore in ull the purity willi which I
entered, I would havo been glftdJ They
wanted to tako mu out on the grass
and play with mu, aud swing mu iu thu
hummock, but 1 wouldn't go, and just
then one of tho girls looked out of tlie
window, gavo tlw grand hailing sign nf
distress, and thuy all mailed out (if lliu
room, leaving mu alone, uud, before I
could look ut myself twice, four of thu
female teucliors cunie into thu room.
They hud returned from Chicago before
they woro oxpected. Did they look at
me? Well, 1 should remark. I tried
to explain, but thoy would not hear to
any explanation, nnd I had to go away.
The cousin 1 spoko of was only a cousin
in my mind, uud sho had mado other
arrangements about relatives nud
didn't wnnt nio uo more, mid 1 wont
out into .the widu world a piuco of
decorated china such as was never soon
beforo. At a store I bought a linen
ulster, went to tho laku uud washed
part of the paint off my faco, turned
up my coat collar, und after dark rodo
into Chicago on a lumber oar, aud got
to my boarding place, where thero was
a party, und I had to show myself and
explain it nll, I tell you, paid, I would
not go to a female college unprotected,
and face a crowd of elude girls, for n
fortune. Thoy aro awful whon thoy
get on a spree! and uo man's Ino is sufu
in their hands. I novor seo a schoolgirl now but I think of that afternoon
at tbo female college, and what a fool
I wns that I did uot havo gall enough
to kiss overy one of thom."
The value of tho telephone patent
is enormous, and wu vory much doubt
if it could now bo pnrchasud for 825,-
000,000. It is probably by far tho
most valuable single patent whioh hm
over been mmih—Ehv.trkiaii.
I do nut think it would bo wrong
for me to say that tho religion of the
United Slates is the worshipping of the
golden cftlf, —Mgr, Capet.

\ Possible Blunder.
Conclusions hastily readied ure
very often erroneous. People frequently chtyigo tlieir opinions, ami a
cliango uf opinion implies an error
of judgment Tlie fallibility of all
human judgment makes it till the
more necessary that we should act
with extreme caution hefore arriving at conclusions the consequences
of which may ho serious. Tho
laws of till civilized countries provide many safeguards which nro
intended ns a protection against injustice. A man cannot ho snatched
up nnd tried for a serious crime
until lie hus had fair and ample
opportunities to vindicate liis conduct. If onr laws uro nt all in
fault their fault lies ill the opportunities thoy afford for tlio escape
of the guilty. It is reported as a
rumor which has gainod considerable
credence about Chilliwhack and
Sumas that the Indian Louio Sam,
lately lynched, had nothing whatever to do with the murder of
which he wus accused. There is a
story in circulation which throws
iho suspicion of g'lilt in nn entirely different direction. The work
of the lynchers was done with both
decision   and   haste,   and   nobody
■ would he greatly surprised if it
Uirr.ed out that these people hnve
made a shocking blunder. An innocent man may have been rashly sent
beyond the reulms of tecall while
the guilty criminal is enjoying tho
fruits of his well-laid plans. Wo
hope these tumors may be shown
to have no foundation. Although
only tiii Indian, Sum had n life as
precious to liim as nny of our lives
arn to us; und he was just ns
mnull entitled to the protection of
the law. It is sad enough to reflect
tlmt a guilty man has been, bunged
iiiii-uudeniiiod by nny process of
law., Amt'i't would be much more snd
''if it canto to be known lhat lie wns
tijioeent Those who loud tliem-
si-ivi-n to this dtiligero'is practice of
Kiiiiiiiuii'y lynching lake some t«r
riblr i-liui'CE's: und if souio of them
should happen to stand innocently
with a rope nhont their r.ccks. iu
the hands of n mob, they may
hociimo alive to the full extent of
tho risks taken. Mob law must
ti'i-vi'i' be tolerated in British Co-
lumbtn. Better allow 1)9 guilty
persons to escape than have the
blood of one innocent victim upon
our heads.
Port Mood] Incorporation.
On Saturday The Colvmiiian
mentioned that another effort was
being made to incorporate Port
Moody, and intimated that if tho
peoplo of the terminus really wished
incorporation there was no special
reason why it should uot begmnted.
We now learn that tlie incorporation
petition hits actually been signed by a
targe mujurity of the residents of
Port Moody qualified to sign it, and
that it wus forwuided last week to
Victoria. We are informed that
the urea sought, to be incorporated
embraces pretty much the whole of
Port Moody, from the end of the
nortii road to near the head of the
inlet; that within this area thore aro
over 200 residents and upwards of
40 tpinlified voters, only u few of
whom refused to sign the petition,
If this informntion is correct, the
present application seems to le a
fair and reasonable one, and if no
legal difficulties arc found standing
in the wuy the prayer of the petition should be grunted. When the
application was made Inst year it
was opposed by TtlB OoLUMUIAN for
two very substantial reasons. In
the first place the area sought to be
incorjiorated only included a very
small portion of Port Mi-tnly; nnd,
in the second place, the petition
contained only about 12 names of
persons who hud it legal right to
sign it. The act requires that there
Khali be nt least 30 qualified voters
in u community seeking for incorporation, and that a majority of
them (at least 16) shall sign the
petition, lu the case of the former
application neither of these conditions existed, nnd if the government
had been foolish enough to grant
the prayer of the petition the eity
charter would have been simply a
fraud to bo exposed the first lime it
appeared iu court, Wo are somewhat surprised to find, however,
that the Gazette, which professes to
he tlio organ of Port Moody, shows
u decided hostility towards the present movement for incorporation. It
ia unfortunute, if it ifl not remarkable, that the Gazette and Tiik Columbian should always happen to
take opposite views of publio questions.     But one cannot read the
i ■ iiiii.ih;
Gazette's observations on incorporation without being struck with u
suspicion that it is more anxions to
vent its spleen upon Mr. McGillivray than it is to promote tho interests of Port Moody. The Port
Moody editor of the Gazette has
never forgiven Mr. McGillivray for
accepting the position of magistrate
which he (the editor) had mentally
disposed of in quite another direction; and the mere circumstance
that Mr. McGillivray took part in
the present movement for incorporation is sufficient to make incorporation obnoxious. The editor calls
the magistrate "Sopey," and charges
lum with deliberate fulsehood. The
people of Port Moody, where Mr.
McGillivray is held in high esteem,
must surely feel proud of the Port
Moody organ. If its responsible
editor were really responsible for
his utterances they might feel
ashamed, but under tho circumstances we apprehend that nothing
emanating from that quarter will
be likely lo damage the characters
of respectable citizens. The (Uvxtk
editor says he has "been mystified
to know any reason why we should
be incorporated uow in February,
1884, after hnving been snubbed
and treated with downright indecency when wo honestly applied for
the recognition of thut right in the
summer of 1883." This is a most
extraordinary plea. We havo already shown that the application
of 1883 was not "honest." Tt was
ill-advised and distinctly dishonest,
But if it hnd been both honest nnd
in accordance with the statute,
surely one failure does not debar a
community forever from renewing
its application. And there are
many cogent reasons why incorporation might be applied for now, In
July 1883 Port Mooily had not u
qualified i opulation large enough to
be incorporated; but since thnt
time it has infills such advancement
that we believe there are more
than the requisite number of resident voters. In 1883 incorporation wus only asked for twn lata-
(201 and ti.')2)i'it is now proposed
to .Uicoi'purato the whole town site.
The mystification of the Gazelle
implies thut Port Moody bus been
standing still since July of last
year, whereas it lias been mnking
very rapid strides in inlvuiueim-iit,
us everybody but the Gftsfttte very
well knows. The secret of this
illnutured opposition, we believe,
comes from the unreitHutmble selfishness of the small clique which the
Gazette represents. Tbey were the
original movers for incorporation.
Thoy limited the urea of the proposed city purposely because some
of them conceived thi) ubstitd notion
that by incorporating their own
property and excluding that of their
neighbors they wonld secure n personal ndvuntiigc. The movement
was not inspired by patriotism, and
it very properly failed. The present application stands upon very
different ground, and if it will bring
any advantage to Port Moody wo
hope it mny succeed.

Dash fok Liberty. — On Monday
morning two members of tlio chaingang, Ibbotson (iV-breed) and nu Indian,

of the guards. Ibbotson, who had
irons on, was overtaken and recaptured, but the Indian managed to reach
the bush And has not yet been found.
His term of incarceration was nearly
at an end, however, nnd we presume
he will not be molested if he loaves
the district.
Oiiphanh* Home.-The 11th annual
report of the Protestant Orphans'
Home (Victoria) bus been issued.
There are at present 10 children at

New buildings have beeu erected during tho yoar nt a cost of 94,0(111, and
on the property there remains a debt
of $2,000. This institution is maintained mainly by voluntary subscrip

Seeds.—Wo have great pleasure in
calling tho attention of our readers
throughout this province to the advertisement of Mr. Jno. Murray, of
Spenco's Bridge, which appears iu
annother column. Mr, Murray has, nt
great cost, established a greenhouse
and nursery, uud his largo experience
and facilities enable bim to meet fully
the wants of his customers. In addition to seeds, plants and trees Mr.
Murray donls extensively in wire fencing and garden and farm implements.
Pout Moody Road.— Messrs, Woods
ifc Turner have completed the location
and survey pf the Port Moody road
via Clarke trail, nml their report will
go down to Victoria this morning.
We understand the road ns fur ns tho
Clarke trail is to bo 20 feet wide, nud
18 feet wide oyer tho trail. A slight
change has heen made in the location
of the northern end nf the road. Instead of going down into Uio ravine,
as proposed by Capt. Clarke, it keeps
on the ridgo. By this change a much
better roadway is obtained, with easier
grades. Invitations for tenders may
bo looked for early next woek.
Thanks.—Unintentionally, wo suppose, the Guardian pays us a marked
compliment. It says two nf the leading nrticlos in Tm. Columbian of Wednesday wero written by "Honest
John" (provincial secretary). Now,
it is admittod everywhere Unit tho
provincial secretary has nn superior in
this province ns a forcible nud lluent
newspaper writer, and as both tho
articles referred to were written entirely by tho regular editor of this
journal, we must accept the reference
ns a compliment. Iu his supreme wisdom '-Dishonest John" of the ffi|<ir-
diitn sometimes overreaches his mark.
Vkddeii vs. Chadsey.—On Saturday tho Chief Justice guvo judgment
in this action in fuvor of plaintiff for
the amount actually paid by liim,
without damages or costs. The action
was brought to recover $500 damages
for seizing the plaintiffs goods for unpaid tuxes dim to the municipality of
Chilliwhack. Tlie court held that the
seizure wus made in respect of taxes
due un lauds not belonging to the
plaintiff, although ho concealed the
fact from the collector, yot tlint vitiated tho whole transaction, and without deciding the various points raised,
or the municipality act, hu gnvu judg
ment accordingly.— Colonist.
. ThbSuwasTraueuy.— Superintendent Todd nnd Mr. Moresby returned
from Sumas yesterday. Mr. Todd
held nn inquest ou tho body of the
Indiam Sam, but it was found very
difficult to obtain any evidence of importance bearing on tho case. The
coroner's jury returned a verdict to the
effect that the Indian wits hanged by
some persons unknown, supposed to
have como from across the lino. Mr.
Moresby thinks there is very little
doubt but the Indian was guilty, as
there wero ninny eircumstnnces tending to orimlnaio him. He had a knife
which is said tu have belonged to tlie
murdered man. Tho Indians about
Sumas are very much excited over tliu
lynching, mid blame Mr. Vork and
tho constables for giving tip the prisoner. It is feared that they in iy retaliate.

A Makitosa Sociable.--It muat be
a pretty difficult person who can't be
pleased with the entertainment offered
at a Manitoba sociable. Here is a
social item from a Winnipeg paper: A
meeting of Sunday school teachers was
held a few evenings ago at the bookstore of R. D. Richardson, and a very
enjoyable evening wna apent. The
meeting opened with prayer and singing, after which the guests partook of
coffee und coke. Dancing followed,
and then the party settled down to a
quiet game o'f euchre und whist. After
the night was far Bpem und the dawn
wasatnand Mr. Richardson proposed
thut they should nil unito in singing a'
hymn, "Sun of My Soul, Thoti
Saviour Dear." Tins was done, and
tho guests departed, well pleased with
the night's entertainment. Everybody's taste was considered, which ie
the only sure way of having a real good
time of it.

From Port Moody.
(Unpolled for the Columbian.)
An anti-Chinese meeting was hold
at the Temperance Hall last Saturday
night. Mr. 'J. S. Fraser occupied the
chair, The Secretary failing to appear,
it was suggested that as the meeting
was n large nnd influential one, the
question of incorporation be discussed.
Mr. Geo. Amand was then voted to
the chair, and the first question brought
lip was tho Gazette's charge of falsehood against Mr. McGillivray.
Mr. McGillivray suid thnt as the opposition had complained that they had
uot been given a fair chance, he had
telegraphed the provincial secretary
asking him to return the petition, and
they would fight the battle over again.
But as he had no legal right, it seemed,
to make such a request, the petition
wns not returned. This he (Mr.
McGillivray) did not know until he
came to New Westminster on Wednesday, aud tho provincial secretary had
then gone to victoria. Upon hearing
this ho ut once wont to Mr. Edmonds
aud told him the position of matters
and intimated that he had better prepare hia protest if he wished to oppose
tho petition. On returning to Fort
Moody he culled upon Capt. Clarke
and told him also. Thero had been a
story Bet afloat thnt he had taken advantage of Capt. Clarke by not informing him in the first place that a
petition for incorporation wns being
circulated. This he denied, for he
and Mi*. Williams had called upon the
captain tho day ou whioh the petition
was carried round, and the captain
and his friends had every opportunity of examining and understanding
it. Those who carried the petition
round neglected to call upon a tew
who were known to favor incorporation, but not one of thoso opposed to
it was missed. He said he had heard
that a protest had been signed, by a
number of people iu New Westminster,
nnd a few of the citizens of Port
Moody, nnd pointed out that the New
Westminster people had no legal right
to interfere with the question of incorporation. Whilo over three* fourths
of the legal voters of Port Moody
were in favor of incorporation, he did
not think the government would refuse the request.
Mr. J. S, Fraser then spoke in
strong language respecting the gross
falsehoods and insults to the people of
Port Mooily contained in the lost issue
of the Port Moody Gazette. The Gazette he characterised as a libel on the
community; and although some of
them hnd subscribed for it and paid in
advance, they would not permit the
Sapor tu come into thoir houses. While
Ir. Fraser was speaking Col. Hamilton (editor of the Gazette) entered the
hall, and there was considerable uproar. The editor was questioned respecting hia statement that Mr. McGillivray had lied about telegraphing
to have the petition withdrawn. The
editor excitedly reiterated his assertion
nud maintained that it was n lie. Some
persons iu the uudiunco gave the eui-
tor's assertion a Out denial. Uy permission they had seen u copy of the dispatch nt tho Port Moody telegrapgh
oilieo, nnd it fully bore, wut Mr. McGillivray's statement. The meeting
began to get too hot for Col. Hamilton,
and he judiciously withdrew while
three of the audience were on the floor
giving him fits. The exit of the editor
of the Gazette was followed byu perfect
storm of applause.
Tho meeting thon fully endorsed the
actiou taken by Mr. McGillivray, and
hu was by a unanimous vote selected
as lender of the incorporation movement. The sentiment of those present
was unanimously in fuvor of incorporation.

(Correspondence ur the Columbian,)
Clinton, Feb. S3.—-The literary
and musical entertainment which took
place here on the ovening of the 22nd
wus in every respect a grand success.
The object of the entertainment was
to increase the funds tu liquidate tho
debt on the parsonage. An excellent
programme was presented, nnd though
the weather was inclement the court
house was filled by an-appreciative
audience. The opening piece wiib
Bung by the choir, "What shnll the
bui-vest be." Then came n recitation
by Miss Annie McLellan, "My last
hymn," which wns so well given thut
tho audience demanded an encore.
"Time will roll the cloudn away" wna
sung by Mrs. Bell, Miss Chenhall, Dr.
Ollerhnua, and Messrs. Oltuulmll aud
Smith. Mrs. Adams gave, in her best
style, "Under t'io daisies," Mr. Souoa
gave a humorous rending in tho first
pnrt of the programme and an excellent piece of a more sober nnd instructive character iu the second. Miss
Floreuce Chenhall sang in a very good
voice, "Driven from home." Master
Charles Magee gave tho "Old cluck on
the stairs,'' wliich waa very well ie
cited. Mrs. Hull Bang in u clear well-
modulated voice, "Bell Mahone."
Then, after tin instrumental piece,
cuuie tho song of tho evening wliich
was rendered iu splendid style by Dr.
Ofierhnus nnd Miss Chunluill, "No
Sir." He possesses n fine (until1 voice,
und nothing could excel the exquisite
tone of Misa ClionlinU's voice as well
ob the graceful manner in which she
gavo the "No" to the earnest appeal of
the doctor. This was received by a
storm of applause, aud though the
chairman announced at tin) opening
that encores would not bu responded
to, tho audience was the best judge of
its own patience, and nothing but a
repetition would gratify it, The
young lnily is to bo congratulated on
her successful debut, as this waa her
first uppeurnnco ut a public entertainment. After the greeting which received Miss Chenhall had subsided,
Master Willie Cameron, of Nicola
Valley, gave n humorous reading,
"Willie's delightful visit," The Ind
did exceedingly well for so young a
reader. Dr. Otferhnus and the Rev,
Mr, Hull sang "Larboard wateh."
Then an instrumental pieoe wu givtfn
by Miss McLellan on the organ, Mr.
Molntyre on the cornet, and Mr.
KoBter on the violin. Dr. McGuire
then gave in good style "Over the
mountain." The doctor was deservedly encored. A duet by Dr. Offer-
haul and Mrs. Bull was beautifully
rendered. Mrs. Belt seemed to excel
herself iu this piece. A few other
pieces completed tlie programme and
were well received. Mrs. Boll played
the occoiupnnimentB of the principal
pieces, and aa this is almost an art by
itself there are few professionals who
can excel her. Thus ended one of the
most enjoyable evenings which the
writer, has ever passed at n public en-
tertaiument. The proceeds netted the
handsome sum of $132.50.

Ou motion of Coun, Johnston, the time
for considering the salaries bylaw wns
extended to next Monday night.
The Mayor reported that lie bad con
versed with the Hon. Provincial Secretary in regard to the location of tho new
city jail, and that this matter, ns also
that in regard to an official city map, was
yet in abeyance.
The Council then proceeded to tako up
the resignation of Mr. Orr as City Clerk.
Coun. Deane, seconded by Coun. Hendry, moved that it be accepted. Leave
was granted Mr, Orr to make a state
ment in his own behalf, und he spoke
very feelingly in regard to the strictures
placed upon him by the Counsil. Ho reviewed the tax-collection matter for several years back, and said thut the taxes
last year hod been collected up closer
than in any previous year for three years
back; a great deal of tho delinquency
had occurred in the road and rental tax
accounts, which were almost impossible
to collect j last year, during tax-collecting time, he had a largo amount of labor
to perform relative to tho agricultural
hall, steam ferry, repairs on Columbia
street and other improvements, and lie
found it impossible to be in two places at
the same time; aa to dereliction of duty,
he refused to believe that the charge
could be substantiated; however, be insisted an hiB resignation being accepted.
Conn. Johnston moved as an amendment that the resignation be not accepted, but tho motfon found no seconder.
Coun. Curtis said he had no fault to
find with Mr. Orr as far as his accounts,
clerical ability or knowledge of the olticc
work wus concealed, but thought he
should have collected the taxes up closer;
other members besides him thought he
did not do bis duty, anil that a change
would be beneficial; he asserted that
whoever was clerk hereafter would be
closely looked after, aiul he (Curtis)
would see that he did his duty; as soon
as a ratepayer was notified of the amount
of his indebtedness, and did not settle it,
a summons would issue against him.
Coun. Johnston sold nothing was mentioned About this matter until the year
was ended; it was a mean, shabby way
to treat a man; there was no fuss other
years; there was evidently something
more behind tbis move, wliich had not
yet como to the surface; the council
chamber waa a bad place to vent jculousy
in.
Coun, Deane said that if auy councillor wob satisfied with the clerk Inst
year it was but one, and that one was
Coun. Johnston; there had been u great
deal of dissatisfaction.
Question being called on Coun. Deane's
motion m vote wus taken with the following result: Ayes—Conns. Deane, Hendry,
Cunningham and Curtis. No — Coun.
Johnston,
The matter of appointing a. new clerk
was then taken up.
Moved by Coun. Deane, seconded by
Coun. Cunningham, that A. J. Alport lie
appointed City Clerk for tlm current
year.
The Mayor said Mr. Alport had been
welt recommended by Messrs. Corbould
ft McColl, who had known him iu the
east,
Coun, Johnston wanted the mutter delayed one week.
Coun, Hendry thought the matter
could he done now, mm so the assessment roll could be fixed up as soon us
possiblo.
Coun. Cunningham wus disuppoiuted
at the names received for the position;
had had some experience with Alport,
and found him good; would vote foi' him
on the ground of eflieicuuy.
Coun. Curtis said there was no favoritism in thu Council. Alport had strong
recommendations, nud he would vote for
hiin as being the best of the five applicants.
Tbe vote on Coun. Deane's motion wns
the same as upon the resignation of Mr.
Orr.

The Tower.
Tho Tower, says the London Times,
is tho oldest of tlie three great monuments of London, und assuredly it
stands at the hend of nil buildings of
its order in the world. It is the most
perfect oxumple extant of a feudid castle of the first clnss, continuously used
as a fortress by the same dynusty, nnd
as a scat of government since the time
of tlie Crusades.
Whon tho White Tower firat rose beside the Thames, ns-'tho buttress and
symbol of tho conquest, the nations wc
call France, Germany nnd Spain did
not exist. It had already seen centuries of great und memorablo things before the oldest of thu palaces nnd halls
of Europe had their foundations laid.
Men talk of the traditions of the
Kremlin, the Vatican nud tho Escurial;
but the first halo of the wild history of
the Tower wns over before a stone wns
laid of those vast piles. Tho races who
raised thu fantastic domes of Moscow
;>r the minarets of Constantinople wero
wandering herdsmen and robber tribes
Asia when tho Tower was the home
the most powerful kings in Europe.
The old palaces of the state of Venice,
Florence, Ghent and Bruges hnve traditions of grent antiquity, nnd aro
memorablo sources of art, romance and
poetry. But their real life has closed
for ages.
The Tower, wliich began so long be-
v them, has outlived them ull iu
permanent vitality. The descendant
f the Conqueror is still mistress of the
White Tower, which for eight hundred
years has guarded the symbols uf our
national powor.

England and Russia.
The traditional policy of Bussiu in
the treatment of the tribes on tbo
frontiers of British India hns been
faithfully aud patiently carried out,
by tho various members of the Romanoff family that successively ascended thu imperial throne. In the realization of these ambitious projects, the
movements of the Russian troops hnve
been steadily onward. They bide

to his country in that region, and,
being invested with ample disemtion-
nry power, ho made it a point to leave
tho laws, institutions, habits, uud even
the language of the conquered intact,
so that thuy wore hardly awitre of the
great political cliango whicli tiad in
reality come over their country. Tiie
Russians have thus acquired a very
firm foothold in tho northern part of
Central Asia, and it is only u question
uf time when the two powerful European nations that occupy a large portion of the Asiatic continent will stand
face to face. Afghanistan is at present the only small strip of land which
separates them from each other.
The Russians have invariably taken
advantage of Great Britain's embarrassment or engagement in a struggle
against an enemy in some other part
of the globe, to push forward towards
the banks of the Indus. They did so
during the Sepoy rebellion in '67; they
pursued the same plan ut the period
of tho Abyssinian war in '68, nnd they
have succeeded in the present instance
when Great Britain is entangled with
Egyptian affairs, in persuading the
Afghans to act as Russian auxiliaries
nnd guides in their war-like movements
in a southeasterly direction. At the
termination of the above-mentioned
and several minor struggles, the British found their bitter enemy invariably
in closer proximity to the northwestern line of their possessions in India;
nnd the unfortunate nud substantially
unsuccessful expedition of British
troops into the Afghan country a few
yours ago is certainly not calculated to
procure friends for them among tlio
Afghans. The latter may, ou the contrary, avail themselves with more or
less eagerness of tho opportunity for
avenging that invasion of their territory, and become willing uud faithful allies of the Russian warriors:
As fur ns Grent Britain's policy is
concerned in subduing tho Asiatic
tribes, an entirely different plan from
that of Russia is adopted. The British nro constantly inclined to force
British institutions, laws, nnd even
prejudices on them, without giving
them tho necessary timo to prepnro
thoir minds for tho change. As u
necessary conscquouce of Biich arbitrary proceedings, these tribes cannot
be depended ou in the hour of danger
as thoroughly as those which have
submitted to tho lighter yoke of Russia.—-San Francisco Bulletin.

London, Match L—Unofficial dispatches from Trinkitat state that n battle raged nil day yesterday. Tlio British fought in an oblong srjuare nnd the
rebels were uenteu at every point.
Special dispatches iu the Daily Telegraph confirm the report that the British were everywhere victorious in yesterday's buttle.
London, March 3.—All advices from
Trinkitat concur in acknowledging that
the Arabs tou»ht with desperate bravery. Osmnn Digtnu, the rebel loader,
who gained so ensy nnd so signal a victory over Baker Pasha, upon almost
tho same ground where he yesterday
met with so decisive a defeat* brought
12,000 mon into the field. Most of
these took pnrt in tho charge against
the British lines. During the entire
battle the Arab want of organization
and wnnt of discipline constantly exposed them to the deadly effect of the
continuous fire which the British poured on them hour after hour. Not more
than one-fifth of Osman's force were
armed with Remington rifles, the rest
were supplied with scimitars and
spears, but neither the Remington
rifles nor guns under the Arab's manipulation caused any loss among the British. Tbe wounds were received nt close
quarters during fanatical charges or
rushes upon the troops. Few prisoners
were taken, nnd the sudden retrcut of
the enemy muses considerable uneasiness hero as to the value nnd results of
the vietory.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
"Thoro you are, Nelly," cried Herwald's merry voice; "why, what nre
ynu shaking and shivering fnr, like an
upscn? I have brought your two boys
safe homo to you, you frightened little
mothor."
And then Halcot rushed in, rosy
mid breathless, and having hugged me
to his heart's content, began sparring
with us all with Hester's largo umbrella, while Max and Leo bounded in
barking and nearly suffocated with
joy.
"Oh, Herwuld," I cried, half laughing aud half crying, "what a terrible
two liours you have cost ns, wo havo
been in such fright nud suspense;
whatever made you bo late?"
"I oould not help it," ho answered,
looking grave all at once, aud his eye
glancing rapidly round; "our engine
broke down about twelve miles from
here, nud wo had to wait till another
was Bent us from tho station. I don't
think it was a lively timo for any of
us, fur, besides knowing you would be
iu ti state here, it was horribly cold,
was it not, Hal? But Hal was executing a frantic war dance round the dogs,
and blowing on hia lingers, and did not
answer. "Where iB Louie, Nell! I
saw hor standing beside you as wo
camo up tho court,''
"So bIib was," I replied. I suppose
she went back to the drawing-room
tiro as Boon as she heard you were
safe." And then—ns Herwald's countenance fell—"Sho was far more nervous and alarmed than I was. 1 have
never seen hor ao restleaa before; I
can't think what has come to her."
And ns I thus redeemed my seuteuce,
a sudden bright surprise cruaaed Iub
fnce, und he followed me silently into
tlm room where Louie was standing
with downcast eyes looking dreamily
into the fire.
She did uot movu or speak aa we
came in, but waited till Herwald went
up to her, and took her hand with a
greeting word aud smile, but to my
astonishment, and his too, her reply
waa nearly inaudible, while a quick
crimson Hush dyed her face and neck
in a moment, as Bhe turned from him,
and seated herself, and without looking at him again took up her embroidery.
No word of surprise nt his tardiness, no expression of thankfulness at
Ins escape, scarcely a movement stirring the white lids as Hnlcot ran in
witli an impetuous embrace, nnd sitting down at her feet, gave her marvellous accounts of his fright, and of
Herwald's courage aud coolness.
No, she only sat with bont head
nud quickly-flying fingers, while Herwnld stood aud watched her, growing
paler from minute to minute, till ho
turned to me with a heart-grieved
ninile; and, after a question or two na
to where Dudley hud goue, nud if I
had heard from Bruce, said wcariedly
that ho would go up now to hia room
and refreah himself before supper,
und summoned Halcot to attend him.
As the door closed on thein, Luuio's
hands und work fell to her lap, tho
color that wan burning on her face
faded away, and as she leant back in
her chair, with hor hair Hunting over
thu cuBhiona, and a meek, pathetic
look in her eyes, she looked like
Hume beautiful Image of purity and
luve. I wished Herwald could havo
hum) her; but almost hefore I cuuld
frame Ihe wish, the door had reopened
and he ji ppuarccl.
Yes, Herwuld appeared, uud thon I
thought I wna in a dream, for, without seeming to notice ine nt nll, indeed
I buliuve nut consciuiiRof my presence,
he went straight up to Louie, nnd,
stooping over her, bent down and
kissed her lips.
"Oh, my love," I heard him wills*
per, "oh, my lovo.'; And Louie,
looking up at him with sweet serene
eyea, put her hand in his without
speaking.
And on Herwald's finger shone iho
brilliant emend ring, aud in n moment
I understood it nll—the yielded pledge,
the token restored, the sparkling gem
hid iu the crimson flower to meet his
eyes, the silent acceptance of a pus-
sinnately-urged luve, and Herwuld's
incredulous joy at the Bight of it.
Through my tears I looked upon
him uow—the man who was dear to
me ub a brother, aa he stood, his
noble face transformed with happiness, with Louie's hnnd folded in
both hiB, while thanks tender und true
were breathed in her ear.
Then Louie, looking up nt me with
shy bright eyea, saw uio watching
thein, and held out her arms to me,
"Come hither, Nellie, my dear little sister, und tell me if I have done
right. Do you think iu your heart,
my pet, that I shall muko Herwnld
happy?"
But I could not answer her—no,
not even when Herwald knelt down
beside mo and claimed his brotherly
right, for my heart was too full of joy;
but I took their hands and bade (ind
bless them, for they wero dear to nu:
na life itself, and then I cuuld say uo
more.
"Oil! how the fonlish child cries,"
said Louie, patting iny cheek. "Why,
Nell, are you bo sorry tu part with
your tiresome, provoking Looi"1 And
I answered—
"Tt is for happiness, dearest, thnt
you hnve fulfilled my cherished hope,
and given mo such a brother, Oh,
Louie, Louie! love him, and honor
him frum your liearf, for lie deaervea
nll that you can give him."
"Sho has given me all, Nella rniu,"
lie returned, proudly, "in giving me
herself." And, ns he apoke, ho drew
off the emerald ring from his finger,
and, kissing it, placed it on hers.
And Loo fluahed over hor beautiful
face, while her eyes filled with tremulous light, for this was tlie sign of
their betrothal; and then I left thom
together, and, going into tho dining-
room, found Halcot iu the great armchair before the tiro, with the three
dogs in his lap, nil licking him ut once.
On Beeing me he thrust out a red,
restless face.
"What's up, Nellie? and why nro
you all ahut up in the drawing-room?
Do you know thnt I am nearly famished, and thnt it Is eleven o'clock?"
"Then have your supper, dear Hal,
and go to bed," was the unexpected
rejoinder, "No; it Ib no use waiting
for Herwnld and Louie, they are
much better engaged, and will come in
when they finished talking."
So Halcot sat down grumbling,
while Mnx and Loo followed him uninvited, and when I hud done I sent
him to bed, uot caring tu havo tho
news spread through tlie house juat
yet, and presently they came in, Herwald holding his head high, and look-
* ing unutterably happy, and Louie,
calm, placid, and benignant, with a
restful contented expression upon her
face.
It was so new and strange to wateh
thero, that T could have ant there com
fortably all night; but Herwald was
more mindful uf our well being, and,
as aoou as tlio meal was over, insisted
on our retiring to rest.
And thou we had a long talk, Louio
and I, ovor her bedroom fire, Loo
brushing out her masses of hair
thoughtfully, and I, kneeling down on
the rug, with my hands clasped in her
lap.
Shu had always liked him, Bhe
owned, better than any man she had
ever seen, only tho boyishneaB of his
louk had a little distressed her, nnd
she fancied at first that he was cold
and proud. Hut she had alwaya said
to herself that it was not for her, ao
willful nud capricious, te lovo and
marry. So, when Herwald asked hor,
she deadened tho first impulse of her
heart, and bethinking herself that it
might bo, after nll, but a wavering
fancy such as sho had had many a
time before, had doomed it her duty
tu refuse him.
But the patience and sweetness with
which he hud borne his disappointment, uud Ins calm undeviating kindness towards herself, touched her more
than she cured to allow; and when, on
the morning of his departure, he had
placed thu ring iu her hand, telling
her that its restoration Bhould be the
token uf her favor; and that then, but
not till then, he should renew his suit,
tho gem had trembled loosely in her
fingers, and it had been half in her
mind to givo it bnck to hiin at once;
but alio was too proud for it, and so
let him go.
After thut she tried to forget him;
but only found she remembered him
more, till, frum missing him su sorely
nnd feeling herself blank nnd lost
without lum, she camo to soe that it
was useless to struggle against it, uud
that she might as well confosa to herself that she loved him.
"For I do lovo him," said Loo, sighing, us Bhe dismiss ed mo for the night,
"though it is a mirnole to me how I
enn; and yet, if I hnd lost him, as I
thought I had in that terrible storm,
ho would hay* left tne widowed in
every thought."
And this from Loo?—ah! well might
I kneel beside my little white bed that
night aud puur out my heart in thanksgiving, that the sister for whose future
we had au much feared hnd anchored
tho hopes of her life on such a rock
as our Herwnld.
Arid this night I dreamt again of
Keith, but this time no littlo boat
rocked pleasantly on n golden sea, for
I thought ho wns sitting alone atern
and palo; and when 1 went up to him,
turned away without ■>peaking to me;
and when I awoke my fi.ee was bathed
with tears.
Alas, how unequal is fntel Here
wero two Bisters, each loving and beloved, one soon to become a happy
bride, and follow the man of her
choice to a rare nnd pleasant home,
and the other to waate out her heal')1
and years with a longing that perhaps
might never be fulfilled.
Wo had n late breakfast next morning, and in the middle of it Dudley
walked in. How blithe wna hia greeting to Horwald, how unuonsciuus hia
welcoming words!
For a little while wc all sat there,
deferring Uio startling announcement
from minute to minute, till a favorable
opportunity should occur.
Dut Dudley wns too quid; for us.
Even in thu middle uf au animated
description of UHuston, its noble architecture and grounds, hia roving eye
had detected the emerald ou Louie's
finger, aud in a moment ho waxed
dumb and awfully rod.
Herwald cleared his throat, albeit
his voice was as clear aa a bell, and
commenced, looking rather bashful—
"I have something to ask you for
this morning, Dudley," and he took
Louie's hand as he spoke. "Do you
think you can give mo your sister?"
Dudley did not answer, und Herwald went un—
"I know that I am uot worthy of
Louie, and that I can never hope to
bo, but if you will intrust her to me,
no woman shall bo bu loved nud ao
fondly cherished."
He drew her towards him as he
spoke with a grave protective tenderness very strange to see, and Dudley
said—-
"To whom cun I intrust her so gladly as to you, Herwaldl And when I
tell you that 1 can wish her no prouder
lot in life than that of being your
wife, you will understand how unnecessary are your last words. Tako her,
then, and may sho be to you all that
she has been to us." So saying, he
folded her in his arms and stretched
out his hand to Herwnld, who took
it eagerly.
"All, Loo, Queen Loo!" cried her
brother, proudly nnd fondly, "must
Sunnyside loao your rule?"
"Only that alio may resume her
scepter again at Hurst Hall," replied
Herwald.
"Oh, uo," responded Luuie, with a
faint smile, "you must offer ine no
scepter thero, for a divided sovere;gn-
ity wilt hardly suit you, Herwald, if 1
know you aright, aud I have ever
lovod my own will too dearly. I only
hopo," she continued, with r. sort of
subdued sadness iu her voico, "that
I may not find the lesson of obedience
tou diflicult to learn, or you to teach;
but ono thing I nm assured of, that
you have ever been my patient master. "
And this from our proud willful
Loot Ah, well might Dudley laugh,
and protest that the world was turning upside duwn when BUchaoneas
Queen Loo talked of lovo nnd obedience!
After thnt Dudley and Herwald
held n long conversation in thu Oak
parlor; and then Herviild came in
and fetched Louie for a walk, whilst
I aat down und wrote n letter tu Bruce,
in which I told him the wonderful
news, thut a real live pair of lovera
wero inhabiting Sunnyside at the present minute.
******
It wns soon noiaed abroad in our
little town that the beautiful Louie
Mortimer waa engagod to be married,
and fast nnd thick poured in tho visits
of congratulation, that feminine curiosity might be appeased, nnd a fruitful diah of gossip provided for many
a maidenly tea-table. And for ton
long wondering Hays the tongues of
powor wagged tneir will in and around
Sunnyside; many aud conflicting were
the several opinions, hut tho feeling
that aaemed apparent in moat minds
was tbat of unmitigated aatoninhmont.
"But, my dear, aaid Mrs. Thornton to me one day, nnd 1 felt that she
was ncting as the mouth-piece of the
British matronhood nbout ua; "but,
my dear, ho ia bo young, nud, if I
may candidly exprosa nn opinion, ao
insignificant-looking. Of course he is
n gentleman, nnd 1ms vory fine manners and nll that, mid posseaaen, I am
told, the fortune of a prince. Every
ne knows that our denr Louie ought
to marry Into n moneyed family; but
stilt, how could ahe refuse thnt elegant
Colonel Gray and accept Mr. Delorme
passes comprehension; he ia so exceedingly " hero Mrs. Thornton pausod
with the obnoxious word insgnifioant
again on  her lips, nnd substituted.
"so boyish-looking; why, in a few
years she will look old enough to be
his mother."
"Nonsense, Mrs. Thornton, he is
two years her soiiior."
"And what ia that in a man, my
dear? Iu happy marriages there ought
always to be a disparity of years ou
tho right side, or the balance of power
is disturbed Take my word for it,
Nellie, as a woman of some experluce
in these things, before tho first few
months arc over Louie wilt have
learnt tu rule her young husband right
regally."
"She will do nothing of the kind,"
1 returned, hotly. "You littlo know
our Herwald when you say that. He
lias more strength of will and force of
character, with alt Iub appearance of
extreme youth, than any man I over
met, mid great as is his love for Louie,
if her will woro evor to be opposed to
his in any matter of importance, I
know well who would have to give way,
and it would not be Herwald."
"I nm very glad to henr it," replied
worthy Mrs, Thornton, with a constrained smile; "and I suppose, nfter
all, there is no accounting for tastes,
only such a fine woman au she will
mako ought to have n personable man
for a husband, and not one who will
appear like a younger brother to hur
all his life."
"My dear mother," interrupted
Dick, who wus standing near listening
tu ua, "you are making Nettie quite
cross with your animadversions on her
favorite, and, after all, the truest sen-
tense yuu Imve aaid is that there is no
accounting for tastes. Belle, par example, loves a man uf mettle, nnd is
infatuated with Harry's broad shout
dera and herculean proportions; but
thero nre many who, like Louie Mortimer, can aoe more beauty in Herwald
Delorme's pale face and clever dark
eyes than in Hurry, who, albeit his
inches, is nothing but a clown, or in
Algernon Fitzgerald, who is n mere
'rasher of wind cut in halves,1 empty
sound, uud without a fragment of humanity about him."
So spoko honest Dick, who in the
days gone by had nourished certain
wiirin feelings of his own towards the
Sunnyside Beauty; but Mrs.Thornton
only shook her head till tho ribbons of
hur cup went to work liko flimsy windmills, nnd seeing how the land lay, and
thnt certain envious instincts had beeu
aroused by tho mention of Hurst Hall,
I took my leave, repeating to myself,
as I wandered down the lime-tree walk
from tho Hermitage porch, a clause in
the Liturgy, which bids ub abstain
from envy, malice, and nil unehnri-
tableiiettB."
"Fie, Sprite! down, silly doggie; tie!
what a world it is, Sprite, when you
ain even jealous of poor old Nettle
walking with the fringe of my shawl in
her mouth."
Louie, who waa profoundly indifferent to public opinion in genoral, only
laughed lung and merrily at Mrs Thorn-
ton's tirade; content with hur own
choice, it muttered little to her who
elst approved or disapproved, and as
Herwald minded it even leas than alio
did, tho feminine babble did no mischief to ub, nnd only provoked our
mirth.
Meanwhile things went on merrily
at Hnn'nyside, Herwald made a most
devoted loverj though a very quiet
one: and Louio, though rurely demonstrative, yet soon made it evident to
all that Bhe loved now for thu first
time iu her life, niid with au earnest,
true, womanly affection, that would
bring its own roward. Day by day
her simple reverence increased for
Herwald, mid she ceased to regret the
sacrifice of her pride aud will, uud
could hew to think of the time when
sho must lc.ive us all, to follow him to
a now and unknown homo.
And that time waa fast approaching.
Almost beforo a week was over,
Herwald, ardent and impulsive in this
as iu all things, had pleaded so earnestly nnd so successfully, th i'fc Louie
had yielded to his and u lley's
wishes, and had consente t to name
nn early day in the following April,
that they might have the summer before them for a long foreign tour.
IJi.wuld knew that it was Louie's
grunt desire to seo Paris, Switzerland,
and Home, and had planned this tour
for her express pleasure and benefit.
As fur as his own wishes were concerned, hu would havo preferred not
leaving England nt all, and would
rather have taken hiB wife home to
Hurst Halt at once; and as Louie
knew all thia nud was touched by his
unselfish generosity, she could make
no opposition to hia plea for an early
marriage, even though it loft her only
six weeks more for the exerciao of her
maidenly will nnd liberty.
Yos, in six weeks we were tu lose
our Loo; and as the distance of time
lessened, our hearts failed us as we
thought how sorely we should miss
her, our gay light-hearted sister.
It was true that she was, hb far as
tho work wns concerned, only a drone
in the home-hive, but none the less
did she store us with the honey of ber
words and the s jetness of her presenco; but all the honey aud tho sweet-
iiosB belonged now to Horwald, and wo
'u tho oh1 homo would be left to re-
gtot Qucwi Lou's mild benignant sway.
Wi -e Keith's words nally coming
true ( How welt I rumembored them:
''Your brothers nro with you now, Nellie, but one day they will take to themselves wives and leavo tho home-nest,
and Louio will nnt be long with you,
and tho boys will go out into the
world; nnd then when you ure alono
iu tho old house, thon—thnn it will bo
pleasaiiL to remember that there is ono
to whom you can turn, nud on whom
you have a certain right,"
"Ah, Keith, Keith, if only you
could come to me nnw, my dear!"
And then Brucu camo home; he had
been awny seven weeks, and returned
brown and bliiho and bonnie, and
heartily glad to be amongst us again;
but evon whilo ho told us so, thero
was n Intent gravity in Iuh words and
manner that told us his thoughts were
not all here, and that he was remembering his Highland lassie.
But he was full of affection for Louie
and of hearty rejoicing in the prospect
of happiness that Iny before her, and
thore wus earnestness in the jesting
tone in whicli he told her that now for
tho first time she had redeemed her
character in his eyes and blotted out
that one great errort her treatment of
Colonel Grey.
"Oh, Colonel Grey!" sighed Louie,-
"am I never to hear the Tost of that
unfortunate man?"
"Never," replied Herwald, coolly,
"because, of course, you know be is
