Seldom does one of the younger
clergy give a text from the pulpit
but he tells us in his sermon what
is the rendering of the revised version. Somo of the more advanced
clergy use the revised version always in the pulpit. With the Old
Testament the popularity should be
greater. So many people know
Greek that tliere has been an approximation of the English to tlie
Greek signification of words. So
few know Hebrew tliat much of
the Old Testament has been dark,
and some passages in the Minor
Prophets are veritable puzzles to all
save the learned. In fact, the majority of English-speaking people
will now read Job, Ecclesiastes, and
the concluding books of the Old
Testament 'for the first time with
any comprehension.—Ete,

NUMBER 25
Russian enmity is a legacy of
Lord Beaconsfield, and it is the sole
ftuit of the vaunted diplomacy
which produced the treaty of Berlin,
The decay, of Turkey Jias not been
arrested, the passes of the Balkan
havo not been fortified, Cyprus has
proved worthless, and, or England
could not art'ord to garrison it, would
probably, if war should break out,
be at once abandoned. But Russia
has been fatally estranged ; and it
is only natural that she should take
advantage, without much delioaoy
of the present difficulties of her
■avowed opponent. How would
England have felt and what w,ould
she have done if Russia had behaved
.towards her as she behaved towards
Russia jn the Russo-Turkish War,
or if Russia like she had invaded
the neutral zone between the two
Empires in the East 1 It is a grand
Achievement of diplomacy to con.
tract a formidable enmity and lay
jt up for yourself in sfpre against
your day of trouble. Wljen palmer-
■stou waB the chief of the Jingoes I
and DUraoli was leading the opposition to him fn the House of Oom-.
mons, Disraeli could eeo -clearly and
sUtfl plainly that the expansion of
Russian empire in Central Asia wus
just as natural and as little a ground
for suspicion op hostility as the expansion of British .empire in the
southern part of the synjio continent.
But, having afterwards assumed tlm
part of chief of the Jingoes himself,
he At tho same timo assumed, and
as uiua) over-acted, that of the
diplomatic antagonist of Russia.
He sent out as Viceroy of India an
aristocratic dandy and poetaster
whose vanity impelled him to a
flashy policy and who found, as a
Viceroy is too sure of finding, sycophants ready to assure him that tlie
impulses of his vanity were wisdom.
For the second time Afghanistan
was invaded, and the result of the
second invasion, as that of the first,
served only to prove the sagacity of
All the great Anglo-Indian statesmen and generals, including Wellington, who had deprecated aggressive movement in that direction and
pronounced Afghan independence
the best bulwark of British India.
It is thought by cool-headed judges
that Russophobists have exaggerated the importance of Herat, and it
is to bi hoped, in the interest of all
who would be involved iu the conflict, including Canada, that the
mere possession of that place will
not be mode a question of poaae ov
war, - It is not likely that Russia
wants war with England; her government has already too much upon
its hands. Yot the situation is
evidently critical, and for this addition to an accumulation of perils
the gratitude of Entrland and those
whose destinies are •identified with
tiers is due to Lord Beaconsfield and'
his Music Hall train, though perhaps the Rothschilds and their fraternity may also claim a share, as
thoy certainly may claim a share of
whatever gratitude is due for the
entanglement of England in Egypt.
-The Week,
"Swamp Angel."
It was in the fall of 1879 that James
Grange, late physician and surgeon
in the Royal Cariboo Hospital at Barkerville, British Columbia, gave me
an invitation to accompany him on a
hunting and fishing expedition to Bear
Lake, which is situated about 45 milea
from Barkerville, among ths foothills
of the Rocky Mountains, near the
''Lorno" glacier.
This lako is about 25 miles long by
5 in width; its outlet being Bear River,
a tributary of the Fraser. Its shores
are studded with a stunted growth uf
pine, maple, fir and alder, the home
of the grizzly, the brown, cinnamon
and black bear. Wild goeseand other
fowl innumerable here bring forth
their young, and the lake is teeming
with the speckled mountain trout, a
very Eldorado uf the sportsman and
hunter.
From tho north and south shore* of
tho lake spurs of the mountain rise
thousands uf feot, terminating un the
south in grand old Bald Mountain and
on the north in perpetual snow and
the Lorne glacier.
It was about sunset of the second
day out from Barkerville that we
arrived, under the direction of an
Indian guide, at the lake and pitched
our tent on its shores.
Of a sudden heavy black clouds
circled around tho mountains and settled down to the surface of the lake,
and it became so blaok and dark that
its intensity was almost painful.
Hurrying within our tent, we lighted a candle, a good supply of which
we had fortunately brought along with
ub, and made preparations for our
evening meal.
Soon tho clouds sent forth their
balls of firo, accompanied by a deafening rearing and rumbling like cease*
jess artillery, awfully grand and majestic, We afterward learned that the
cause of its continuity was its re-echoing from mountain tu mountain, as
we could hear fourteen distinct repetition of a shout from the middle of
the lake.
Looking out from our tent, by the
aid of a Hash of lightning, I beheld a
canoe with a single occupant making
toward ua; drawn hither, no doubt, by
our light. I immediately informed
the Doctor and proceeded to get in
readiness my rifle-, in case it might be
an unfriendly intruder; but my fears
wore groundless, fur our guide informed us that it wns a white man, and
so it proved. But how can I describe
him? Six feet tall, brawny and sunburned, his dress the skins of wild
beasts, his hair and beard grown lontj
and matted from neglect. He welcomed us to Bear Lake, nnd informed
us tbat the name by which he was
known was "Swamp Angel;" that he
hud beon the sole white inhabitant of
the lake region for tii teen years; that
Barkerville waB the nearest settlement,
to which he made one trip a year for
supplies; and that ho lived by hunting and fishing. His only companions were his dogs, of which he had a
gvodly number.
He had traveled from the Yukon
river at the north to Mexico, and
from the Atlantic to the Paoifio Ocean;
had once been a voyngeur in the employ of the Hudson Bay Company,
and had learned all thu arts of hunting, trapping nnd fishing, as well as
other useful and valuable arts, from
the different tribes of Indians with
whom he came in contact. He was
intelligent, good-natured, and seemed
quito happy and contended. He invited us to his lug cabin, where wo
remained a week.
He spoke fluently five different dialects of the Indian language, and informed us that he could make himsolf
understood to all the Indian tribes of
America. When asked concerning his
life previous to becoming a voyogeur,
he was reticent and made evasive
answers; noticing which we did not
press him on the subjeot. The Doctor asked him what he did when he
was sick, and he replied; "Nature
provides mo with the means to get
well again." I recognized him as belong to tho X X X X Order, whereupon tlie seemed to form' a great attachment fur me, whioh he often
showed by taking mo tu his favorite
fishing pools in the evening, where we
would Bit and fish till it was quite
dark. On ont uf these occasions he
appeared uneasy, and fishing seemed
to havo no charms for him. Finally
he said to met
"Mr. Phinney, for many years I
have been a wanderer,   My real name
is W ; I wus born and brought up
in the village of M , nestled lovingly on tha banks of the T-— river,
in E .    There I have a son, now
no doubt grown to manhood. The
story of my life and hers and his 1 cannot relate. Suffice it to say that I was
tho son bf a proud, arrogant and selfish' fattier, who turned me from his
door penniless, and I swore an awful
oath never to return tu my native
land Ah! too well I have kept tlutf
oath. But my heart goes back to the
old home, nnd fn my dreams I often
soe that pale littlo girl, -the mother of
my boy, as 1 saw ner clinging to me
long, long years ago. I have a pack-
ago for her or him that I would ask
you to take with you, but I want you
to swear to me by the oath you hold
sacred that you will seek them out
when I am doad, and, if he or she he
still alivo, you will deliver it to them
with the seal unbroken. You wil) be
well repaid for your troublo; but, if
you have suro proof that thoy are
dead, you oan break the seal and the
contents of this package aro yours."
I swore it. On the 15th day of
January, 1884,1 learned from a friond
at Cariboo that Swamp Angol was
dead. I immediately wrote to tho
American consul at M—- and learned
that the mother and child had both
died many years ago, and that the
package I had jealously guarded ao
long, had boen saved from tho noble ship
Olympus in 1881, whioh was burned
four hundred miles off the mouth of
the Oolumbia in the Pacific Ooenn—
was mine. How nervously I broke
the seal 1 And therein I found 4 let-
tor to that darling girl written with
hia own blood, deposit chucks on the
 baiik for $5,000, and a medical
recipe fur the curo of rheumatism,
this ia a true story, and every old
Caribooite will well remember Swamp
Angel of Boar Lake.

Soiufan war, and tlie Canadian re-

It - ia quite possible that war. between Britain and Russia may yet

It^'iiiay.'ibe questioned whether, iii

while Russia is on the verge of

much certainty. We hope tlie war

8-coit Act Convention.
'■'Our readers in-this district aru
remihded that the .temperance con
venjbion to ttiscusB the Scott Act
will be held in this city next Monday;-' aftemooon, beginning ut ■ 4
o'clock. 1 -It is hoped that the
friends of temperance ' and reform
will take an active interest in this
meeting. Events that havereeently
transpired show conclusively how
difficult it is to regulate.the liquor
tralfic. under tho present laws. It
wasi hoped that a comprehensive
license act would "pas's"flie prbvin-
uiiii" legislature at its last' session.
But., there, seems to have been no
ejl'o^,*pQiide to introduce stich a
measure, and tlie attempt even to
pass a bill forbidding the sale of
ibWhJatiiig.ilquiarsjonVSunday.re-
ceived the support of only three or
fow members. The public received
an intimation* thnt these matters
were >nqw in the.hands.pf the municipalities, and- that the house
pfqao*^ w*0 len^vp it. ;* Butif the
if ■ the. house had taken a
tr^bifi to'Mbnir themselves
thoy liiij^Ht- li&va WiBcolvfered that
<'Kperi»nce has shovvn that municipal corporations ' are not safe custodians of such matters. After
many' years of trial, under itiucli
more perfect regulations tlian have
ever been provided in this'province,
the people of Ontario deliberately
took the licensing power out of the
hands of municipal councils and
..it to commissioners appointed

i REMARKABLE STORY,
(Con Untied,)
''Edward!" she drew her baud out
of his arm and then put it hack again
after a moment's hesitation,."do you
want ino to look a wretch eren to myself? Why should you say nll this,
and why—why be so unjust to me?
You forget that when one knows nothing one thinks, all sorts of things, and
inventB a hundred terrors. Tell mo
how it is in tho general, not details.
You do not want Billy sympathy."
"I want all your sympathy, silly
or not. I want you. Hester, if we
are to escape notice we must dance
like the reat; we cannot stand and
talk all night. And I am just in the
mood for it," he cried.
Many people, uo doubt, havo waltzed
with very littlo inclination for it,
people who were both sad nnd sorry,
disappointed, heartbroken; but few
more reluctant than Hestor, who felt
her position intolerable, and by whom
tho complacent injustice of it, tho
calm assertion thnt such blind adherence was all that was to be looked
for from a woman, wns more irritating
and offensive timn can bo described.
Wna it possiblo that hu thought so?
that this wus wlmt sbo would have to
encounter in the life she should spend
with him? Her advieo, her intelligent
help, her understanding, all ignored,
and nothing wanted but u kind of
dogfish fidelity, an unreasoning belief/
Hestor felt it cruel to bo 11u.de to
dance oven, to ho spun through tho
crowd as if in the merest caprice of
gayety, while at such a crisis of her
fate.
But neither this nor their subsequent conversations made any difference; tlie ovening passed for her ua in
a dream. Edward, who was uot much
of a dancer, aud seldom cared to perform these rites with any partner but
herself, danced repeatedly with others
that night, while Hester stood by,
looking on with gathering bewilderment. She had a headache, she said.
It was her mother's way of getting
free of every embarrassment, and Hester wns acquainted with tho expedient,
though she had not hitherto beeu
tempted to use it. She sat by Mrs.
Merridew, the mother of the house,
who was a kind woman, and disposed
to be good to her. "Just say the
word, my dear, and as soon as our
carriage comes I will take you home,"
this lady snid: "for to sit with a rucking headache aud watch other young
folks dancing is more thnn flesh and
blood can bear." But nine! Mrs.
Merridew's carriage wns not ordered
till two o'clock, nnd Hoster had to
bear her burden. And of course it
was not thus that the evoning ended.
He came to Beek her at Mrs. Merridew's side, and hoard tho account of
their headache with a sympathetic
countenance.
"This was our dance," ho snid; "but
come into the hall instead, whero it
is cool, and let mo get you some tea."
Ho plnced her there, in the shelter of
the evergreens, when all tbu hub-bub
of the next dance was in full progress.
They were quiet, almost alone, and
Edward was in a fever of high spirits
and excitement. Be had said littlo
about love in that strange moment
when he had taken possession of her.
Now he made up for nil deliciencioE.
She endeavored at first to bring him
bnck to what she culled the moro important subject. ''Can nuy subjeot
lie more important?" ho said, with
tender reproach. And she was
silenced, for what could she say? And
the moments Hew too fast and were
too brief tn bo lost in any struggle.
Thoy parted, with a few mysterious
words whispered into her onr, which
did much, however, to bring baok tbe
painful tension which had relaxed a
littlo in his presoncc. "If 1 send to
you, you will see me, Hester?" he
whispered. "Vou won't think of proprieties? I might have to put your
love to tbo tost—to nsk you—"
"What?" she cried, with almost a
spasm of alarm. Ho gave her hnnd
a warning clnsp aa he put her into the
fly, and thon, stouping to arrange the
shawls around her, kissed it secretly.
And thnt was nil. She drove home
iu the silence nnd dark, feeling every
word thrill her through, going over it
again and agnin. Whut was this teat
of lovo that might bo required of her?
What did he expect her to do for him,
in ignorance, m blind trust? Hester
had too high a spirit to accept this vole
with ease. She waa bewildered—dazzled by the lavish outpouring of his
love; but all that did not blind her tu
the strung*- injustice of this treatment,
the cruelty mi hor helpless position.
For what could sbo do? She could
not dosert him.in his hour of need; if
he made this call upon her which bo
spoke of do mysteriously, it would no
doubt be in his utmost need, when to
desert him would be like a traitor.
And Hoster knew that she could confront any danger with him or for him
—but what waa it? A dilemma so
terrible hud never presented itself to
her imagination. There wns a cruelty
in it, a depreciation of nil the nobler
parts of her, as if only in ignorance
could Bhe be trusted. Her mother's
* questions about tho ball, and whether
ahe had danced much, and who her
partners had heen, wero insupportable,
as insupportable as the maunderings
uf Emma. In abort, if there was
anything that could have made this
mystery and darkness in which her
way seemed lust more hard to bear, it
was the background of amusement
and supposed 1 if-ht-hear ted ness against
which it was set. "My head ached,"
she said, "I scarcely danced at nil,"
by way of freeing hwself; but this
opened only another kind of torture,
for poor Mrs. John, well uaed to the
feminine indulgence of headaches, had
a wholo surgery of little remedies,
and bathed her child's forehead, and
drew back hor hair, and would have
administered sal volatile, toa, eau-do-
cologne—there was no telling how
many cures—if Bhe had been allowed.
"Let me fan you then, my love;
aometimes that does me a great deal of
good. J ust let me pour a littlo eau-
de-cologne first; you don't kuow how
cooling lt is."
"Oh, mammal let me be still; let
me bt In the dark; go to bed, and
don't mind me," cried Heater.
"My lovel how oould I do that and
leave my ohild to suffer,'' said Mrs.
John, heroically; and it was heroic,
for the night was cold, tho tire burning low, and tho hour three o'cloek.
Heater, with her brain throbbing, all
inaccessible to Bau-de-cologne, did not
know Jhow to free her mother from this
too-generous unnecessary martyrdom.
She began to talk to break the spell.
"Emma is very happy," Bhe Baid,
"•he danced  with  Edward Vernon.
She thinks perhaps it may make the
other Bpeak, or that oven Edward him-
■elf—"    Heifer broke off,   with a
quiver in her Up.    "I am becoming
nialiciouB, like the rest," she said.
"That ii not malicious, dear," aaid
Hn. John. "Emma la rery amusing,
being M tank* but ihe ii right enough J
when you come to think of it; for
what can she do if site does not marry?
And I am suro Edward Vernon, though
Catherine makes such a fuss about him,
is nothing so very great. I wonder
what ho meant coming here that ono
night, and so lato."
"It was by accidont," Hester said,
"It was a very odd accident," cried
her mother; "no one else evor did so,"
"Ho had been sitting late over his
work, and bis hend wna very full of—
biiamesa."
Mra. John lookod in all the conti
dence of superior wisdom into her
daughter's face. A smile dawned upon
her lips.
"Perhaps you think ho was coining
to confide his troubles about his business, Hester, to you and me."
"And why not?" said Hester, raising herself from her bed.
Mrs. John dropped her fan in her
suprlse, and sat down abruptly upon
tho littlo chair by Heater's bedside, to
her daughter's grent relief.
"Why not?" sho said. "I think,
though you are my own, that you are
tho strangest girl I ever knew. Do
you think a man ever talks to women
about theso things/ Oh, perhaps to a
woman liko Catherine, that ii the snmo
as n man. But to anybody ho cares
for—never, oh, nover, dear! I supposo ho hus u respect for you and me;
think of any man venturing to bring
business into my drawing-room, though
it is only a poor little parlor now, not
n drawing-room at all. Oh, no, that
could never—never be! In all my life
I never descended so low as that,"
Mrs. John Baid, with dignity. "I
used to be brought into contact with u
great many business pimple when your
dear papa wiib living; but they never
talked 'shop,' na they called it, before
mo."
"But my father himself!" said Heater, her eyes blazing with the keenest
interest; "you knew all his affairs?1'
Mrs. John held her delicnto littlo
hands clasped for a momont, and*then
flung them apart, as if throwing the
suspicion away..
"Never!" she eried; "ho respected
me too much. Your poor papa wns
incautious about money, Hester, nnd
thnt has done a groat deal of harm to
both of us, for we are poor, and we
ought to have been rich; but ho always
hnd too much respect for me to mix
me up with business. You are very
inexperienced, iny. denr, or you would
know that such n thing could not be."
Hester followed her mother with
her large eyes, with a wondering, wide
gaze, which answered well enough for
thnt of believing surprise, almost awe,
which Mrs.. John wm vory willing to
recognize us a suitable expression.
Aud there was indeed a sort of awe in
the girl's perception of her mother's
perfectly innocent, perfectly assured
theory of .whnt was right in women.
What wonder that a man should think
so, when women themselves thought
bo! This strange discovery composed
and stilled her, whon at last sho was
left in the dnrk and in pence.
Hester kept gazing through thnt
wintry blackness, with eyes still wide
open, and her clear brows puckered
with wonder and alarm. Was it natural, then, a thing she Bhould accept us
just, that it wus enough for her te
sympathize, to share the consequences,
to stand by the chief actor, whatever
happened, but nevor to share in the
initiative, or have any moral ooncern
in the motive or the menus of whnt
wns dono? A sense of helplessness.be-
gail to take the placo of indignation in
lior mind. Wns that whnt they called
tho natural lot of women—to suffer,
perhaps to share the blame, but havo
no Bhare in tho plan; to sympathize,
but not to know; to move on blindly
nccording to sume rule of loynlty and
obedience, which to nny other creature
in the world would be folly nnd guilt /
, Hut her mother knew nothing of auch
hard words. To lior this wns not only
tho ri»ht stnto of affairs, but to suggest
nny bettor rulo was to fail in respect to
the lady whose right it wus to bo loft
ignorant. Hester tried to Binilo when
she recalled this, but could not, her
lieurt being too sore, her wholo being
shaken. lie thought so too, perhaps;
everybody thought sn, and alio alone,
an involuntary rebel, would be compelled to accept tho yoke which to other
women was a simple mutter, and their
natural law.. Why then, was she made
unlike others, or why wns it so?
Edward had been in great spirits
that night. Thu next time they met
was in the afternoon, lute, whon Hester wus returning from a visit to Mrs.
Morgan. It wns nearly dark, and it
startled her to seo him standing waiting for her under one of the trees past
the gate of the Vernonry. She went
slowly, Bomewhat reluctantly, to join
him, on tho sign, just discernible, in
the dark, which he mnde her. He
caught her hand quickly, as she came
op, and drew it within his arm.
"You have been so long with that
old woman, and I hava wanted you
so," ho cried, lending her away along
tho deserted country road, which
struck off at right angles with the common. "Couldn't you divine that I
wanted you ? Didn't you know by instinct I was longing for consolation ?"
"Oh, Edward! whatiswrong? What
has made bo great a change in you ?"
alio cried.
He drew hor arm oloBer and closer
through hie, nnd loaned upon her as if
his appeal for support was physical
too,
"I told you it was too 'long to explain," he Baid; "it ia all the worry of
business. Sometimes things seem going well, and then I am top-gallant
high, and vex you with my levity, as
the other night—you know you were
vexed the other night —and then
things turn badly, and I am low, low
down in the depths, and want my love
to comfort me. Oh, if you only be-
longod to me, Hester, and wo had a
home somewhere, whero I could go in
to you and Bay 'Console me!' "
"But, Edward, your business never
used to be a fever and an excitement
like this."
"How do you know? I did not dar©
to como to you; and you were a child
then. Ah, but you are quite right,
Hester; it was different. But a man
cannot vogitute forever. I endured it
aa long as I could. Now it iB all on a
turn of the cards, and I may bo able
to face the world to-morrow, and have
my own way."
"On a turn of the cards! Edward,
you cannot mean it is play ? You are
not a—gambler ?" Hester gave a little
convulsive cry, clutching him by the
arm with both hands.
He laughed. "Not with cards, certainly," ho said. "I am a respectable
bunker, my darling, and very knowing
in my investments, with porhaps a
taste for speculation-—bat that nobody
haa brought home to me yet, It is a
very legitimate way of making a fortune, Hester, It Ib only when you
lose that it becomes a thing to blame,"
"Ho you mean speculation, Edward ?"
"Something nf that sort; a capital
horse when it carries you over the
ford, and everything that is bad when
you lose."
