Weilnneiliiy Morning, Wee. 0, I.S.T.',
"Now Yoa Sec It—Now You
Don't!"
Beaven's organ-grimier in this oity
reminds one 'Of tlie magician's pea under the hut. On Saturday the 25th
November ho lectured the Government severely for not having played
their cards better in the Yale bye-
election contest, nnd added: "No
one deserves the lish who docs not
know how to open the oyster, and if
the Government io wrecked from
want of knowledge in playing their
cards, they cannot blatrio anyone but
i themselves." Having thus inferen-
tially admitted that the Government
were "wrecked," and having unfeelingly intimated that it served tltem
right, he proceeded to.depict the result and the relative strength of par
ties in tho Legislature as follows:
'■The position Is simply this: The
parties aro equally balanced, with
perhaps one in favor of the Government, but this is iuiu'Hcicnt to carry
on tho business of tho country."
Doubtless smarting under a severe
.rebuke from James Bay, coupled
with an intimation that tho Government printing would be withdrawn
if he dared make such damaging
admissions, . Saturday last, just
one week later, the abject organ-
grinder reverted to the subject, and
declared that tho abovo quoted admissions were merely made for the
purpose of "luring" the Opposition
"into showing their hands,"—that
"thoy were intended for n bogus
mark for their shots." Did anybody
ever read such transparent nonsense
—such a wretched attempt at dust*
throwing! Having offered this extraordinary explanation, with th:
hope, doubtless, of appeasing his
irate masters and deceiving the pub-
lio, ho proceeds to stale that so far
from tho Yale election inspiring the
Government with despair, it produced the opposite effect—that it
threw tho Opposition into despair,
whilo inspiring the Government with
fresh lifo and confidence I Isn't that
a wonderful result for the Yale election to bring about! Tho Opposition
candidate defeated tho Government
candidate by nearly two to one, and
yet tho defeated party are jiiljilant
and the victorious party iu despairl
That thero may be no mistake about
it, the organ makes tho positive
statement that the Government aro
perfectly contented and happy over
! the result of tbo Yale and the Esquimau elections, nnd that the Opposition aro in despair from the
same cause 1 Having thus set himself right with the Government, lie-
proceeds to assert that it is really a
strong Government, and quito certain to hold office during the next
four years. This point settled, doubtless to his own satisfaction, this
whirligig writer goes on io c.-.-plain
why it is of special importance British Ooltim bia should possess a strong
Government at this juncture; nnd
what think you is the main reason!
In order that the JSsquinudt dock
Mint/ is speedily puthed to completion
wid the commercial and political
supremacy of Victoria aemrcd! Do
you doubt the accuracy of our construction! Here are his own words.
Mainlanders, read and construe) them
'for yourselves. tsW "If U'« t'ov-
i eminent is carried on in a wishy-
washy way or its fate Is uncertain,
'capital will bo invested away from
tho present Capital, and it may
loosen Victoria's hold upon the seat
of Government," jgj* Here, then,
is the policy of this strong and gootl
''Government. Its supreme object
and duty will bo to prevent capital
being invested away from Victoria
(»'.«., in any other part of tlie Province) and securing forover to that
city the seat of Govornment I One
would hare thought such an announcement a bold ono for the Vic-
toria Standard to make. But coming from the Mainland Guardian it
ia something moro than bold. In a
leading article, on the 18th ult., the
local organ said, inter alia, "The
look will ouo day be the greatest
louree of wealth to Victoria, and
should be most certainly constructed
without a moment's delay." Those
*onls occasioned somo surprise at
she time; but, road iu the light of tho
loclared polioyof tho BeavbiiGovorn-
nent, there can bo no doubt about
heir meaning. We commend the
■/hole subject to tho careful consideration of the people' of the Main-
ami, and, for that matter, tho pec-
do of Vancouver Island too.

Dcaili,
Impartial, atom, relentless lung,
We all thy summons must obey;
And from our hearts life's treasures fling,
Ami at thy bidding haste away I
What means thy direful reigu on earth,
I cannot fully understand;
"lVcre better far we ne'er liad birth
Thau to be crushed beneath thy hand.
Sni-oly thy away o'er human kind
Is meant to work some final good,
That by my dark and feeble mind
^Can not be clearly understood.
My spirit loathes th'uimghteoqflthonght
That man's existence thou dost end;
Hope of eternal life has brought
The strength on which our souls depend.
I hate thy fuUe and heartless slave,
Who says, "Trust only what you see;
Thero is 110 life beyond the grave;
Why dream of immortality ?"
His words are false: I hoar the voice
Of nature's all-pervading soul,
That bids iny fainting heart rejoice
That thou, 0 Death, shalt lose control";
And as a tyrant turns to flee,
Dismayed and vanquished in tho fight;
So shall thy flight unglorkms bo
Before tho exulting victor—Life.

Travelling in Japan, Mr. C, Maries
found that plants (if the same species
often appeared an differently in dillur-
ent parts of tho country us to make
him doubt their identity until after
closo es ami nation. This wan purticu**
larly true of eon.foroUB trees.
Wator issuing from hydraulic pipes
exerts an astnmshinjj; erosive power.
In one hydraulic mine a pebble*kmded
stream working eight months in u yoar
bus in four yoars cut a channel iu solid
slide rock threo feet wide and fifty
feet doop—according lo Packard.
Herr S. Wolff endeavors to account
fur Biui-spots by a new theory. He
thinks they may represent ureas on
the Bim that aro vastly hotter thnn tho
bright surface surrounding, instond of
being cooler as astronomers generally
holievo, Thoy aro regions so extt'OiuB'
ly hot, ho supposes, that the heat
radiations have reached tho intensity
of ultra violet [rod ?] rays; tliese boing
invisfblu the spots consequently appear
dark,
A novel and remarkable thormo-
chemical battery haa been produced by
Mons. Drard, of La Roohollo, which
ho regards as a solution of the difficulties experienced in getting nn efficient
electric current from heat. The buttery consists essentially of slabs of
prepared carbon containing nitrate of
potash. When theso aro burned a continuous current is generated until they
are consumed, A slab six inches long,
two inches wido aud an inch thick
busts an hour and a half or two hours,
aud will ring nn ordinary electric boll;
aud three or four slabs connected to
increase tension will decomposo water.
Archaeologists know that ropes date
from a very remote period, and had
reaclied a state of considerable porfoc-
. tion at the dawn of the biBtoric.il on,
Tho first' ropos were probably made
from tho fibres of tho inner bark of
trees, froni grasses, or from the hides
of animals. Among tlie relics of tho
ancient Egyptians have been found
sculptures showing the process ot rope-
manufacture practiced more than 4,000
years ngo, while the oldest records of
tliat people represent well-mado ropes
capable of sustaining onormous bur-
dons. It appears that flax and tlio
fibres of tho date tree were employed
for those ropes.
It iB proposed to place tho islands of
Mauritius and Reunion in communication with each other by means of an
"optical telegraph." Tlio stations will
bo about 134 miles apart, and will occupy nn elovatcd spot on each island.
From either station signals will, by
the aid of a petroleum lamp, be Hashed
across tbe intervening stretch nf the
Indian Ocean to tho opposite station,
whore they will bo received by a tele-
Hcopic apparatus which it fo proposed
to arrange bo as to photograph the
luminous Hashes. If successful, this
system of signalling is expected to
prove of especial value in sending
warnings of the approach of cyclone^.
Speaking of "waste," a favorite
theme, Dr. Siemens lately Baid tbat ho
had been experimenting at his farm at
Tunbridgo Wells with the object of
utilizing to tbe fullest possible extent
tlio heat applied to a steam engine.
His engine drives a dynamo-electric
machine, which not only lights his
green-houses at' night, but also furnishes artificial sun— enabling him to rapidly grow fruit in the depth of winter.
Nor iB this all, for the escaping steam
from the engine is mado to heat the
green-houses and other places in winter, so that be expends but little moro
fuel since he started the electric light
and dynamo machine than he did before in heating those bouses.
Dunns tbe French invasion of Mexico a plant was discovered which was
found to pnssefin the property—when
chowod or crushed—of stopping hemorrhages. To the native Mexicans
this plant was kurfwi) by a name
which may bo rendered as' 'Fnwlwort, "
Tho discoverer carried a Bpocimuu to
Versailles and planted it in 18(17, and
it has since itimnsjhfid, flowered and
fruited without apparent change in its
peculiar qualities. The notion of this
plant in'fluid to exceed that of all styptics known, and this valuable property
is likely to give it a wider extension,
especially aa it seems to be so readily
ncclimatod in foreign lands. Its botanical name is Tradescantia erecta (Jacip).

the stated presence of u Supreme
Court Jutlge been presented hy.ii
New Westminster Grand Jury. This
time there is a perceptible im prove
ment in the temper and tone of the
reply vouchsafed by the presiding
Judge. "A long and intimate acquaintance with Now Westmiiist^r
assures me tlmt a County Court
Jfidge df proper legal attainment's,
specially created, with somewhat increased jnriadictiou in criminal matters and power to initiate proceedings in the Supreme Court, would
probably meet tlio requirements of
the law to tho satisfaction of the
inhabitants." Such is His Lordship's
reply; and it certainly possesses the
recommendation of being civil and
respectful, which is rather more than
'can be said of some of those whicli
proceeded it. As regards the remedy
proposed, we are disposed to regard
it as u mere topical palliative—unless, indeed, the County Court
■Judges be mnde Supreme Court
Judges out and out, and that would
be practically exchanging King Log
for King Stork—it might prove to
be rushing from Sc vl la to Oharybdis,
True, it would be levelling up instead of levelling down; but wenio
not sure that it would be quite practicable to invest County Court
Judges with such quad Supreme
Court jurisdiction and fund ions as
wtfuld enable thom to discharge those
duties for the performance of which
the stated presence of the Supreme
Court Judges has appeared to be so
essential. As we endeavored to point
out a few weeks ago, the experiment
of amalgamating the two Courts has
not proved satisfactory, and the best
way out of the difficulty would appear to be a separation and appointment of a sot of County Court
Judges possessing legal training.
While apparently accepting this remedy, Mr.'Justice Crease goes a step
tarther nnd proposes that these
Judges should be invested with such
powers as would obviate tho necessity for the residence of Supreme
Court -Judges within tho judicial
districts. But as has already beeu
feinted this could only bo accomplished by making the County Court
Judges full-fledged Supreme Court
■Judges,—virtually repeating the c.\-
petiment of amalgamation in another
torm* and wo .are not sure that the
remedy might not prove to be worse
than tho disease Cut lot us see
what there is hidden away under all
this. Is it possible that a determination on the part of the Supremo
Court Judges to continue to reside
at the Capital is at the botlom of it
all—*-tbe mainspring of all the trouble? If that be so there is anodic
and complete remedy, which wo feu
it maybe necessary to apply! This
thing of all tho livo Supremo Court
Judges persisting in living huddled
together in Victoria, and leaving the
whole of this Province of magnificent distances destitute of Iho judicial machinery essential to the proper administration of civil mid criminal justice is altogether "ioo, too
utterly utter," and must have an
end. Those gentlemen must be
taught that tiie Judges are created
for the People—not tho People f*
the Judges, and that the supreme
consideration should be the good of
the country, not the personal comfort and predelictions of the Judges.
Manitoba Typhoon.
Popular indignation in Manitoba
on account of the disallowance by
tho Dominion Government of all
acts passed by the Legislature chartering railways running in tlio di
rection of tho boundary line appears
to have reached white heat. The
legislature has been dissolved and
the Government of which Mr. Nor
quay is premier, lias appealed to the
country; and this is the issue, iu
aontentiously expressed by tho Win
nipog Times, Mr. Torquay's organ:
"We propose re-enacting the charter!
and general railway Act. Will you
authorize us to do so 1 We contend
that Manitoba possesses and should
enjoy tbe right to issuo chin-tern for
the construction of local lines within
her borders.   Will you authorize us
to put that contention beforo the
Federal authorities in your name]"
When it is borno in mind that Mr,
Norquay's Government is a Conservative one and has been working iu
harmony with the Government at
Ottawa, it will be understood how
ten ibly in earnest public opinion
must be on the subject. Provincial
party lines would appear to be merged for the nonce and a Conservative
Cabinet is-boldly throwing down the
glove to the Conservative Government at Ottawa, But for all that,
public opinion may not be altogether
right. The angry torrent of popular
indignation may not bo tempered
with justice. At the first blush wc
were disposed to lot our feelings How
with thoso of our brothers beyond
the Rockies; but a careful examination iiito the merits of the question
leads us to conclude that there are
two sides to it. That is generally
the case. Most questions have two
sides. But when men get heated
they aro apt to fo^et that tlicic are
two sides. Jt does seem very hnrdj
nnd it is hard, that tlio people of
Manitoba cannot be permitted to
build railways within fifteen miles
of the international boundary line
for the next twenty years, for fear
such railways might compete with
tho traffic aud thereby lessen the
profits of the Canadian Pacific Bail-
way; aud it is not difficult to imagine instances where such an arbitrary inhibition would amount to
very aggravated seeming oppression
arid injustice. But let us look at
this question from another standpoint, a standpoint 1' otn which the
Dominion Government are bound to
look at it. And the case is so well
put in u leading articlei iu the Mail
that we cannot do better than give
the following extracts:—
Tlie Legislature of Manitoba in 1SS1
passed an Aot to provide for tlio extension of the boundaries of Manitoba, cmi-
ttenting tu the increase of thu samo hy
thu alteration of its limits iu the manner
afterwards enacted by an Act of tlie .Dominion passed in the same year, and upon the terms ami conditions expressed in
•he said Act of the Dominion, The Parliament of Canada accordingly, by statute, enlarged tlio boundaries of Manito-
ia,by the addition of a large extent of
valuable territory; and after reciting tliat
the Legislature of Manitoba had consented to the increase of its boundaries
upon the tonus and conditions thereinafter expressed, euaoted'the terras and
conditions on which the increase was
made. One of these terms was that
"the said iiieronsoil limit, and tho torn-
"tory thereby added to the province of
-'Manitoba, should lie subject toall buoIi
"provisions as might have been, or should
■■lioreaftor he, enacted regarding thcCa-
"nadlan Pacific railway and tho lands to
"be granted in aid thereof,!'and one of
theso provisions, as contained in tho
Pacific Railway Act, which was' thus
made one of the mutually assented to
terms of increaso, was tho followiog,vi>..;
".For twenty yeais from tlm date hereof
"no Hue of railway shall be-authorized
"by tiie Dominion Parliament "to be con*
"straotod south of tlio Canadian Pacifio
"railway from any point at or near it,
"except such Hues as .shall run south-
"west or to the westward of so«tli*wost,
"nor to within fifteen miles of latitude
"-li), and in tlio establishment of any
"new provinco In the North-West Te; ti-
"tory provision shall bu made for continuing such prohibition after such es-
'■tablisliii.uit until the expiration of tho
"said period," * * * Our answer it
clear and derisive. Our contemporary
(The Globe) admits that tlio Acts in rpnw-
tion violate a positive stipulation of the
Paoifio Railway Act. Wo go further,
and say tliat thoy violate a high legislative Contract, solemnly adopted by
both contracting parties, under the sanction of a statute of the Empire, We also
assert that had tho Dominion Government sanctioned the Acts in question and
continued 'their vitality, they would have
been guilty bf gross want of respect to
the Parliament of Canada audi., breach
of faith on their part. Tho policy of the
Parliament of Canada was to secure a
great national highway from the Atlantic
to the Pacific—to nceuro the construction of the heavy works of the' eastern
suction, necessary to connect Manitoba
with Ontario, and ngirf.i the heavy section through the defiles of tho Rocky
mountains accessory to link Manitoba
and tho fertile prairie belli with British
Columbia! and with thnt view the condition in question was adopted by tlio
Parliament of Canada and deliberately
assenti'd to hy Legislature of Manitoba,
That policy lias produced, aud is producing, inngniflaoot fruits, Would Winnipeg, the hamlet of almost yesterday,
have had 25,000 inhabitant? to-day but
for that policy of rigorous construction
of our great national highway? Would
the crowds of immigrants (wo presume
50,000) who have beon thrown into that
provinco this year hnve gone there but
for that policy and Its vigorous carrying
out? Assuredly not, and yet thoOov-
orimicnt of Manitoba Ore appealed to to
invite the Legislature to violate a deliberate and formal compact, which they
consecrated by a statute of their own.
Now, whilo onr sympathies must,
in a sense, run with the people
placed under circumstances of very
great hardship, wc feel bound to admit the force of what is said on the
other side. The wrong, if wrong
there be, would appear to have been
committed when terms which appeared to us nt tlio time to be monstrous wore given to tho Syndicate,
It is difficult to seo now how thu
Dominion Government can deliber-
aiely break faith with tha huge
monopoly to whom, as it appeared
to us, they handed over the fate of
empire " and we confess it is equally
difficult to seo how the peoplo of
Manitoba can be expected to reconcile themselves to Iho cast-iron conditions imposed   upon  them,    Un
doubtedly a houso will be elected
pledged to hifrl defiance at Ottawa.
But the Government at Ottawa has
tho "whip hand," And yet it has a
difficult jia't to play.

Tliti Esquimau Election.
On Wednesday the ou'riuin was rung
down on thu ludicrous farce recently
enacted by Mr. Beavon's Attorney-
General, aiid there wus a broad grin
on the public countenance. The last
act was quite in keeping with those
which proceeded it. A bit'of bluster
about appealing Uio case to Ottawa
when anybody pn'sttussing a grain of
legal knowledge might lo have known
that no appeal was possible. Either
Mr. Hett is marvellously ignorant of
law, or else lie has been nil along playing for mere delay, knowing right well
ihat tho law was against him. Prom
first- to hist the points raised have boon
of the must frivolous and" ovou childish
kind, and it is dillioult to believe that
ho could have expected any other result. Thu most reasonable theory
seems to be that he was merely seeking delay, postponement of tho evil
day. Certainly tho proceeding has not
boon n very creditable*-- one. How
much has it cost the country 'I
Boom al VM Hanej'.
A correspondent writes:
The boom has commenced hero. On

Glatfsloire's Successor.
With tha growing conviction thnt
Gladstone contemplates curly retirement from aclive public lifo tmLurally
comes tho uicious discus»io'.i nf ihi*
momunloua question- "Who shall bo
his successor?" Undeniably Gladstone bus proved himself to be, nil
tllpigs considered, tho greatest statesman of his.time', and it ia not strange,
therefore, that there should bo pro-
portionu o anxiety as to tho person
upon whom hfo mantle shall fall.
To uur Utiakim the niosf satisfaelory
answer comes to ua through tlit) rays
of the Now Vork Sun, and it is LOUD
DCFPE1UN. After alluding to his
early history, and long record of diplomatic and ndmrnistrativo triumphs,
commencing iii Syria as early as IHlIP,
uud -ending at Cairo in J882, the
writer in tho Sim says:—"And iu addition to nil his statecraft Lord Duflbt'-
in is a man of letters, a man of society,"
a man of thu world, in its best sense,
than whom no ouo would, as First
Minister of tho Crown, know hotter
how to discharge tho Statu and social
functions of that great* m'lioe with a
dignity and splendor hucIi an would
commend him to tho English hauls
noblesse, with whom, whether Whig or
Tory, ho ia a prime fuvorilo, while ho
has a wifo who has shown herself admirably fitted to discharge all Social
duties with grace- dignity uud address.
Wero Mr. Gladstone .to bo removed
to-morrow, tho best interests of tho
British Iilmpiro, no matter in what
quarter of the globe, could bo placed
in no safer hands than those of tho
gifted IriSh/man, who, aftor six mouths
of unceasing worry at Ooustantinnne,
has gone, by way of a refreshing
change, out of the Turkish frying-pan
into the Egyptian tire. Not until (he
recent pages of Turkish political history uro thrown open to tho public will
peoplo realize not merely all that Lord
DuH'erin has done, but, which is half
the battlo in diplomacy, all that ho
bus prevented being dune." Tho groat
Colonial Empire, especially Canada,
would rejoice to seo Lord Dufl'erin succeed Mr. Gladstone.
. Wio *s Arubi Paiiia?
A plebeian Swood of tho name of
Karl 'Anderson, whoso father is unknown, but whoso mother supported
herself and little Charlie by keeping u
small green-grocery near the Bridgo of
Monks, in Stockholm. Having a
taato fur a sen-faring Hfo, Charlie
entered tho naval institute and in
ifioO accompanied tho school ship
"Karl Julian" on a training cruise.
He and eight others, having been punished for insubordination, conspired
and clTected their escape from the
ship on the coast of Jutland. Purtiug
from his comrades, Charlie arrived in
Hamburg, where ho uriiclod on board
an American ship, from which lie deserted on reaching New York. Thttfo
he joined a troupe of travelling tightrope performers. Afterwards ho appeared in the role of a "clown," in-
whloh -character ho appeared before
audiences in several American cities.
Subsequently ho fell in with a company of Egyptian acrobats, to whom
he attached himself. Thus was his
attention turned to tho teachings of
Mohammed, aud tho winter of iyb'2
found him, alter many adventurous
travels, in Tunis with his Moslem comrades, cm bracing tho faith of lshuu.
Assuming tho namo of "Ainbi," ho
was soon led to sever his connection
with his acrobatic associates, und going
to Alexandria, ho became a private in
Uio Khedive's army. Having survod
six years and become an officer, Arabi
received his discharge and accompanied
au English tourist to Constantinople,
where ho became intimate with ofHccrs
about Court, and,, through tho influence of Mufti Pasha, obtained tho appointment of instructor in the military
scht'ol- at Cairo. How ho afterward
rose grade by grade; how ho ainci-
becanio a minister of and conlidant of
tho Khedive; how lie, ut the reduction
of tho ai'ihy, sided warmly with his
discharged comrades, and how he
finally throw the gauge of defiance at
Albion's warlike soiis uro all matters
of history which need no recapitulation

Wo beg to call the attention of tlie
trade and the public' to.tho well-known
quality and elegance of finish of onr
Cold Cases, guaranteed by us to be of
eighteen burnt Cold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Cold, as may be
stamped, and also to our mode of soiling
tho same, ohargiug only for the Aort'Ai,
Wmciri' of the gold, used, and not lor
the basis metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc. To illustrate
whicli a tag accompanies eacli one of our
Gold Cases, wliich .plainly indicate;' not
only the gross weight of the ease, but
ulso the Net weight of the gold.
In explanation of the above wc desire
to biiv that the old plan of churgoig for
■flic gross weight of tlie case, ns if it were
all gold, worked well enough as long its
the manufacturers were content with the
amount of brass and steel actually re
quired in its construction; but when the
business was degraded info u contest as
to wiio should get the most base metal
into the leriBt quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the timo came when,
in the interest of dealers in American
Watches* it became necessary to adopt a
plan of 'selling, showing the buyer exactly how much Coi.ii each case contained.
To avoid imposition, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observo that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
hears our trade murk on both case and
movf uieiit. Cold eases arc stamped "A.
W. Go.;" and guarantee certificates accompany them. Silver cases arc stamped
"A. SI. iWatch Co., Walthaiii, Mass.,
sterling silver," und are accomnauicd by
guarantee certificates, signed It. E, Rob-
bins, treasurer, The name "Waftliam"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of cither distinguishing
mark'!. This caution is rendered riooea-
Bary by reason qf the fact -that our cases
ars frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of other makers and vice vena,
thus affcotiug injuriously the performance of the watches, und vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by iisj. It is ncccssory also, because it is
so notorious as to be a public scandal
that thero iH great fraud in the metal
quality of both gold and silver coses as
now gonoiilUy sold. We have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
{-old and silver .eases o'Verul iu the market arc debased from 10 to 20 per cent,
from the quality they assume to be.

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER X.
THB   DIE   IS    CAST.
The more he saw of her the better he
appreciated the limpid purity and
brightness of her nature. Be hud
yet to learn its depth and strength
and courage, when tried in circumstances less sunny than thoso in
which she now lived.
With Aunt Alicia, as he already
called Miss Forbes, he was on excellent terms. If he smiled good-humor-
edly at her elaborate attire, and was
not too impatient of her talk, it was
because ho often sympathized with her
conclusions, even when he wus woll
aware of the absurdity of her reasonings. He had, in a modified dci/rco,
her faith in good birth and good breeding; but whereas she, womanlike,
could not endure t-hat any eno should
say she had done, said, or worn an incorrect thing, he considered that birth
and breeding could only strengthen the
reasonable independence that should
make a man fearless of common-place
criticism.
Attnt Alicia was frequently puzzled
by the apparent inconsistencies of his
views, and never could understand
why, while he equalled her in his love
of family history and relics, he laughed at her two favorite arguments—
"Other people always do it*," and
"What will people say?"
On one point Sir Duncan himself
wished that his future son-in-law had
been more accessible to the influence
of general opinion. People undoubtedly did say a great deal when they were
informed that the heir and heiress of
Ardenshaugh and Inverallan wero to
spend the first year or, two of their
married life with a inarching regiment.
How could Sir Duncan allow such a
thing? Why did he not forbid the
marriage, unless Captain Leslie, came
to his senses? Had thero been any
quarrel between old Ardenshaugh and
his son? Ahl perhaps that was the
reason; but then, why should not the
young people live at Inverallan ? Etcetera, et-cetera, et-cetera.
Do we not know how the tongues
ate loosed, and the secret ill-humors
■<*f human nature come out, when somo
one has laid him or herself open to
criticism ? And if there nre two sinners
to be canvassed, naturally the excitement is redoubled. What wonderful
suggestions, betraying the quality of
tho speaker's own mind, what subdued
rejoicing over the fallibility of a neighbor, what heedless judgments founded
nn what complete ignorance, do we
heart
Leslie listened to tho expostulations,
somewhat softened as they were for
his ear, and answered them as he answered Sir Duncan's graver entreaties:
"I love my profession, and I do not
want to give it up unless with a distinct prospect of other occupation.
My father will give me none. You
would give it me, Sir Duncan; but you
know you are hale and strong as ever,
and do not in the least require my
help in managing your estate. My
work with you would be a mere namo.
Muriel need have none of the discomforts of a soldier's life, for money can
do away with thom all, and not oven
for her can I turn myself into a complete idler,"
No one applauded this resolve more
'heartily than Muriol herself, and she
declared that a wandering life would
have great charms for her, at least for
some time to come. She had been
such a stay-at-home, that change would
-be pleasant, and she looked forward to
Spending the following winter under
the sunny skies of Malta.
This being decided, the gossips were
forced to acquiesce, but they consoled
themselves in their natural fashion by
crediting the young people with all
those peculiarities which after a fruitless discussion are usually summarized
as "so extremely odd."
CHAPTER XI.
"woo'd an' married an' a\"
It wanted but a week of the marriage when Mrs. Simpson, over-niniottH
perhaps about the coming festivities,
was seizsd with a fainting-fit, which
lasted sufficiently long to be alarming.
Iu the weakness of her recovery she
fancied herself worse than was the
case, and begged that Mias Muriel
might come to her at onco. She, who
was already in the room, stooped over
the bed, and asked what she could do.
"Ia that drawer, my dear—the littlo
•ne—-a note—I'm sorry now—I hopo
I've done no harm—-" gasped the poor
woman, conscience-smitten.
Muriel opened the drawer, hoping
to find a elew tu the meaning of those
broken sentences, and after some
searching discovered at the back, hidden under ribbons and remnants of
work, Ronald's undelivered letter to
herself.
Somewhat startled, she hastened to
■how it to the house-keeper, and a
look of relief came into her tired eyes.
Poor soull her little sin had weighed
heavily on her; but she had beon too
proud to confess it, though ever since
Ronald's disappearance his anxious
face when he brought his letter had
haunted her unwilling memory.
Up-atairs in the library Muriel read
tho note, and handed it to hor father,
with a exclamation of distress.
"Oh, papa, no wonder Ronald
thought me unkindl How he must
have blamed me for never answering
thisl I must write to him now and explain it—don't you think so ?"
"Certainly, my dear. Poor boy! ho
was singularly unfortunate, just when
he needed enoouragement and help;
everything seemed to be against him.
Write to him. Muriel, and I will add a
lint."
And Muriel wrote simply and generously, as to her old playmate, setting
aside with wemanly courage all consciousness that this man had loved her,
and had in this very letter quite unwittingly betrayed his love.
She left her note unfolded on ths
table, and her father read it, aiid looked into her dear eyes and kissed her.
"Thnt is well-written, my darling,"
■aid he, and added a few words on the
aame sheet. It was he who addressed
the note, and the reply came to him
bf return ef post:.
"Tell your daughter that I thank
her with all my heart for her letter,
and wish her evory good thing that
life can give. May her wedding-day
be as happy as she deserves that it
should be.
This was all; thon the writer proceeded to toll Sir Duncan that ho was
getting on excellently, and looked forward tu rapid promotion.
Father and daughter read the letter
together, aud then Sir Duncan burnt
it; nor did either of them allude to
the subject again. Thoy kopt an honorable silence tliese two, oven between
themselves, ovor the boy's wild romance; nor did Muriel toll Leslie the
incident of the missing note and subsequent correspondence. It was tho
only thing sho ever hid from him,
The wedding-day was as bright and
fair as bride could wish, and in evory
village and farm in tho neighborhood
there was a stir of excitement and
preparation. Muriel had determined
that there should be comparatively
littlo entertainment beyong the breakfast for her own guests, but that everybody connected in any way with tho
estate should bo fouRtod either on that
or tho succeeding days. So touts wore
spread, and bunds engngod, and ample
fare provided, and tho guests camo
with cordial feelings to tho feast, for
Sir Duncan and his daughter were as
much beloved as they were widely
known.
The houso and park at Inverallan
were well suited for such festivities.
The former wus nn irregular pile of
building, to which successive owners
had mado additions, each according to
the fancy of tho time, without paying
much regard to the appearance of the
entire mass. Tho result was moro
pleasing to tho eye of an artist than to
that of an architect; but if tho interior
arrangements wero somewhat perplexing when domestic labors had to be
considered, still neither Sir Duncan
nor his daughter would have altered a
single quaintly planned passage, nor
have levelled an unexpected step, that
was to thorn a thought of one of their
ancestors written iu stone.
Sir Duncan himself had mado but a
single addition; he hud enlarged and
lengthened a room known before his
time as the pi et uro-room, but now as
the picture-gallery, and had largely increased its contents. This gallery
formed one side of a square, at tho opposite sido of which wns the oldest
part of the Hall, a tower, whose main
room on the ground-floor formed the
library, whilo the small turrets at tho
corners were the delight of all children
who visited them. From thoir narrow
windows exquisite views could be obtained of tho winding Forth, the picturesque rock of Stirling, tho level
lines of tho Ctunpsio Hills, and the
distant mountains whose blue crests
rose above that region of romance
whero loch and glon, islot and copse,
are celebrated, oithur by tho pon of
our great novelist or by tho stonier
traditions of Highland life.
The park was uot loss fino iu its way
than tho house of Inverallan. There
huge sycamores spread thoir masses of
dark foliage sido by side with graceful
beech and brilliant Spanish chestnut;
here a peat-stained stream fresh from
tho hill tumbled over rock and gravel
ou its way to join tho wide, still Forth
—there n long slopo of grass wob
crowned by a group of tall Scotch firs
and gloomy yew, and now n wooden
scat was placed against the trunks of
two mighty larches, brought ovor long
ago from their native hind us precious
rarities, and watched with heedful assiduity.
Everything about tho place bespoko
an affectionate care and reverence for
the relics of the past; und though Sir
Duncan wns a man who moved with
the times, he valued tho old plate, tho
china, the thin-logged tables and narrow cabinets, lhat had boeu tho everyday companions of his "forebears," fur
beyond tho more costly furniture and
chased silver with which he and his
father had enriched the houso, replacing ths cups and dishes that had gone
into the Prince's coffers,
From tho hall-door two avenues
branched oil' in opposite directions—
the one barely half a mile long, leading into tho village, not fur from the
mause; tho other winding through the
park, so as to form a drive of somo
length, and finally coming out on a
high-road near a distant part of tlie
fZ-a**-*-fl-mr-*-BttH*lfiE JBUrifcUfl
By each of these avenuos on the
wedding-day guests wore to arrive, the
tenant-farmers chiefly by the longer of
the two, whero the procession of dogcarts and spring-carts of all sorts and
sizes wound merrily botweeti the overshadowing trees. For these, tho larger number of the guests, dinner was
spread in tho picture-gallery, and
there Sir Duncan was to preside;
whilo those who arrived from tho village wero accommodated elsowhere,
and attended to by othor "members of
the family gathered for the occasion.
Miss Forbes moved from room to
room on tho eventful morning iu a
fever of anxiety. Shu had at first
been greatly scandalized at tho manner in which hor niece meant to celebrate her marriage—it was bo very
peculiar of her not to entertain tho
neighbourhood in the accustomed way.
"Hut, my dear aunt," said Muriol,
when thu matter was under discussion,
"everybody is asked to the church,
nnd almost everybody is asked to
breakfast, and what more would you
have!"
"There should have been a bull at
least, my dear," replied Miss Forbes,
seriously.
"To what ond? What would bo tho
good of turning the houso upside-
down, in order that peoplo who' can
go to us mauy'balls as tbey like should
come to another? Nu, I in Hure weddings are often a dreadful bore, and I
believe that the country people will
really bo grateful to ua fur arranging
as we have dono."
"I am sure of that," said Sir Duncan, "No speeches—a standing breakfast, and then let them all turn out
and see the other guests coine, or join
the school-children in the tents and ut
tho games till thoy like to go home.
It's far ploiu.an tor than tho usual formality of a long breakfast that nobody
wants, speeches that evory ono hates,
and time un hand that no one can got
rid of."
