Britain's Embarrassments.
Row Dr. Wild, a Toronto divine
whose   reputation   extends   over
nearly the wholo continent, is n
somewhat  remarkable  man.    He
has made prophesy a special study,
and   has  advanced   many strange
1    views respecting sacred history and
future  probabilities.    Among his
latest utterances are some very interesting opinions upon the presont
complications in the east. He says:
I   The present times are somewhat ex-
!   citing.     This   is especially so in
.   some of   the older actions.    The
I   two colossal powers of the day are
Britain and Russia—the Lion and
the Bear.     One or the other of
these powers must filially have the
\   sovereignty of tlio world.,   In days
of old tliere seemed to be two pol-
.   itical world-centres.   One was local-
I   ized and operative in the Hebrew
nation.     From this centre Providence seemed to work.   To them
'   as God's executive was entrusted
the evangelization and civilization
of the nation.     The other, called
tho Gentile centre, was located in
the Babylonian empire.   Since that
time it has moved to Persia, Greece,
and Rome, ana is now in Russia,
I   These two central powers are aiming for the central land, whioh is
Palestine.     In this land they will
finally yet meet for a final struggle
in the battle of Armageddon.   Britain will come oil' viotorious.    Alt
going on now is but preliminary.
Both of them are on thoir way to
Palestine—Russia is going by way
of Asia, through   India, and England by way of Egypt and Turkey.
If the reader could get and rend
the Will of Peter of the Great, ho
would know the policy of  Russia
and be able to go before thein, Tliis
will eaoh successor takes oath at
the time of coronation to carry out
and forward.     I will quote the Oth
clause:
"Take every possible means of
gaining Constantinople and the Indies (for he who rules there will be
the truo sovereign of the world):
excito war continually in Turkey
and Persia; establish fortrosses in
tho Black Sea; get control of the
sea by degrees, and also of the
Baltic, which is u doublo point,
uecessary to the realization of our
project; accelerate ns much as possible the decay of Persia; penetrate
to the Persian Gulf; re-establish, if
possible, by the way of Syria, the
ancient commerce of the Levant;
advance to the Indies, which are
the great depot of the world. Once
there we can do without the gold of
England."
When this will was made Russia
i was 2,500 miles from the Indies.
At the olose of last century it was
2,000, by the year 1810 it was 1,000
and in 1884 it was 400—and in
1885 the Bear and the Lion are now
face to face. The past few years
Russia has gained rapidly in territorial power. In her conquests of
Bokhara and part of Turkistan she
gained 800,000 square miles. Since
the battle of Waterloo she has taken more from Sweden than remains,
from Poland territory equal to the
whole of Austria, from Turkey an
area equal to Prussia, from Persia
as much as the whole of Britain.
She is 860 miles nearer Berlin and
Paris, and 450 nearer Constantinople. The reader may naturally
ask where will Russia stop, and
who will stop her! I answer, Britain will stop her. In her march
east she is now at the ond.' Beyond
the Afghan frontier she cannot go.
I saw and wrote, ten years ago,
that she would bo just where Lhe
now is in 1885. Neither is the
time come for them to right, though
it looks as if they would bo at it
before what I am now writing con
be read. England is in a critical
position, but I have no fear of the
final issues. The nations have
choice of Russian or Britain's rule
and lead, and surely it is not difficult to guess which both God and
men prefer. England's present confusion and defeat in Egypt are all
designed for a good purpose. She
will be taught that she must lead
among the nations or retire. But
she herself will prefer to lead, so
will other Christian nations prefer
her lead, and so will tho colonies
prefer to be under her, hence it will
tend to bind them all together. The
doctrine of imperial federation is
no nightmare dream but a reality.
Neither Gladstone nor John Bright
will after this be able to persuade
England into a non-intervention
policy. These are not the days for
the formation of new nations, but
the days of steal, and conquest and
federation. Men that talk of Canadian independence can scarcely
know what they are talking about.
Independence would be all very
well if all the world lot us ulone

world and never interfere with us j

the British empire for the next few
years is to keep well together. Believing as I do that the Saxons are
the ten lost tribes of Israel ns organized in Britain and the United
States, I have faith in the future,
for through the mouth of the prophet ultimate pre-eminence and

Britain's War Ships.
010 ENGLAND'S FLOATING PEACE-MAKERS.  .
. .Look now at the monsters— the nd-,
nutted-effectives. Of these there are
now tlie Inflexible—believed to be a
mutch for anything afloat—of 11,880
tuna displacement, having twenty-four
inches of iron armor, on a solid back'
iug of twenty-four inches teak, of
8,010 horso power, and with four 80-
ton guns in her two turrets; a vessel
whose ability to batter down fortifications Alexandria's ruined batteries bear
witness; the Dread naught, which has
just relieved her in the Mediterranean,
with four 38-ton guns in her two turrets, and with lighter armor of only
fourteen inches; the Thunderer, Neptune, Colossus, Edinburgh, Agamemnon, Ajax and Monarch, all two-turret ships uf varying types, the Thunderer having two 38-ton and two 35-ton
guns; the others varying from four
43-ton broach-loaders and two 6-inch
L'uns to 38-ton and 12-ton guns; while
the Monarch, known to Portland, Me.,
folks, as having brought over the
body of George Peabody to that harbor, has four 25-ton guns in her two
turrets, two 12-ton guns and one t\_-
ton—all muzzle-loaders, and therefore
not considered of the best kind, but
nlso powerful at Alexandria.
Named after the famous British
admirals are the new barbette ships,
the Anson, iionbnw, Camperdown,
Howe, Rodney and Collingwood, of
about teu thousand tons each. The
first four nre yet on the stocks. The
Beubow will carry two 110-ton breechloaders, pretty littlo. barkers, with a
playful projectile of 2,500 pounds
weight or more, calculated to knock
out even John L. Sullivan himself—
if within a range of nine miles. The
other admirals have four 03-ton suns
and smaller peta of six inches bore;
while the Temeraire, Imperieuse and
Wtirspite—smaller vessels of the same
class--are content with 25 and 18-ton
camion. Five turret rams, one of
which is the New Hero, yet on the
stocks, are also included in the list.
Then tho central battery Ileal—fine
vessels, all of which have been successful—must be reokonud. There are
eleven of these ships, from the Alexandria of 0,400 tons, with two 25 and
ten 18-ton cannon, and with twelve
inches of armor as her maximum, to
the Orion of 4,870 tons displacement,
which, like the Belleisle, its sister ship,
yot contrives to carry twelve inches of
iron armor and four 25-ton guns. Of
thia class of ships the Swiftaure, Triumph, Audacious, Invincible, andiron
Duke are almost alike, about 6,000
tons, dniwii'g twenty feet of water,
with eight inches of iron armor, and
carrying each ten 12 ion muzzle-loaders. Three armored cruisers, the
Nelson, on tho Australian station, the
Northampton, flag ship of the North
American fleet, recently at Newport,
and the Shannon, have 12 and 18-ton
guns.
For coast defense thero nre five good
turret ships. The Glatton, a ram, has
mnetoen inches of armor defending
her turret, whioh has a 25-tou gun,
and tho Cyclops, Gorgon, Hecate ana
Hydra of two turrets eaoh, eight and
tan inches of iron armor, and with 18-
ton guns. The turreted ships Magdala
and Abyssinia are in Bombay harbor,
and the Cerberus, already mentioned,
at Melbourne. Then there are eighteen unarmored vessels, seven of which
ara fast cruisers, building in the royal
dock-yards, and four flrst-class ironclads are, by a recent vole, to be added
to the list. These will carry 110-ton
guns and will be designed tu take the
first rank.— Bosion Globe,

A Very Sad Story.
John B, Gough tells the following:
"A minister of the gospel told me of
one of the most thrilling incidents I
have hoard :n my life, A member of
his congregation came home for the
lint time in his life intoxicated, and
his boy met him on the door-step,
clapping liis hands and exclaiming,
'Papa haa come home!' He seized
the boy by the shoulder, swung him
around, staggered, and fell in the hnll,
That minister said to me: 'I spent the
night in thnt house. I went out, bared
my brow thnt the night air might fall
upon it and oool it. I walked up and
down the hill. There was the dead
ehidt there was his wife in strong convulsions, and he asleep.' A man abuut
thirty yenrs of age asleep, with a dead
ohild in the house, having a blue mark
upon the temple where the corner of
the marble steps had come in eotitact
with the heal as he swung him around,
and a wifo upon the brink of tho
gravel 'Mr. Gough,' said my friend,
'I cursed the drink. He had told me
thnt I must remain until he awoke,
and I did. Whon he awoke he passed
his hand over his face, and exclaimed,
"What is the matter? where ami?
where is my boy ?" "You cannot see
him." "Stand out of my way. I will
my boy." To prevent confusion I
took him to the child's bed, and as.I
turned down thu .sheet and showed
him the corpse he uttered a wild
shriek, "Oh, my child!'" That minister snid further to me: 'One year after
that he was brought from a lunatic
asylum to lie side by side with his
wife itt tho grave, and I attended his
funeral' The minister of the gospel
who told me thnt fact is to-dny a
drunken hostler iu a stable in Boston.
Now, tell me wlmt rum will not dot
It will debase, imbruteand ruiu everything that is noble, bright, glorious
and godlike in. a human being. There
is nothing drink will nnt do that is
vile, dastardly, cowardly, sneaking or
devilish. Why are we not to fight it
till the day of our death ?"

Wednesday Mornlus, April I, iwts.
The Scottish-American Journal, of
Now York, says: "The expulsion by
Prance from her territory of the
Irish Fenians, Stephens, Davies and
Leroy, has done more to establish
cordial relations between Britain
and France than any event tlmt
has happened since \V aterloo. When
will this country rise above considerations of the Irish vote and imitate the French example f
On Monday afternoon tho str.
Princess Louise was delayed about
two hours trying to find tbe entmuce to the Fraser River. The
whole gulf was enveloped in fog,
and the commander of tbe steamer
kept blowing tho whistle and listening in vain for tlie fog bell of the
lighthouse. There v/a% no sound of
bell to be heard. It is not known
whether the bell was ringing or not,
but it is known that the bell is
almost entirely useless for the purpose wliich it is expected to serve.
Tliis is a matter of too much importance to lie neglected. A proper
bell should be provided without delay, and it ought to be regularly
sounded when required.
Tho Colonial World points out
that Britain has 67 square miles of
colonial possessions to every square
mile of her own; Holland, 54; Portugal, 20; Denmark, 6.30; France,
1.90; Spnin, 0.86 square miles. The
area of the British Colonies is
nearly 8,000,000 of square miles—
rather less than tbe area of the
Russian Empire, including Siberia
and Central Asia; but if the area
of the native feudatory states in
India, amounting to 509,28+ squaro
miles, be added, over which England
exercises as great control as Russia
does over much of tbe territory
undor its sway, together with that
of the United Kingdom itself, 120,-
727 miles, then the area of tho
British Empire exceeds that of the
Russian Empire by about 200,000
miles, ami it covers within it fraction of one-sixth of tlie whole land
area of the 'globe.
A Misnomer.
In a late number of the Scottish-
American Journal (Now York) we
find an article referring to the impropriety of the term England so
frequently used to signify Britain.
The objection is well taken. In
1C03 the kingdoms of England and
Scotland were united under the
name of Britain, and it would bo
just as proper to style the united
kingdom Scotland as England. In
certain quarters tbe term is used
through ignorance, and by some
Englishmen it is used purposely, because *' t are .'lglishmen conceited e.._ -gli to imagine that they
aro really the salt of the earth. It
may be perfectly true that England
possesses more thnn half the population and wealth of Britain, but
that certainly does not entitle ber
to the exclusive monopoly of the
national name. Our national pride
should spring from a recognition of
the greatness of tho united empire,
and not from sectional notions.
The Valuators.
Our local cotemporary sceniB
quito out of tune because tlie so-
called claims of the Coal Harbor
squatters wore not fully recognized
and admitted by the legislature,
and now insinuates tbat the valuators cannot be depended upon to
give an impartial report. "Mr.
Turner," says the organ, "who is
highly respected as a surveyor, is
commonly employed in that capacity by the government. Mr.
Hughes gave evidence against the
settlers on the committee appointed
by the house. Every ono can understand why these gentlemen were
appointed." The insinuation contained in this paragraph is evidently
that Messrs. Turner and Hughes
will not mako a fair valuation—
that they will not give the squatters as much compensation as they
are justly entitled to receive. If it
does not mean this, it can have no
meaning at all. We need not repeat what we havo already said
respecting the qualifications or integrity of the valuators, They are
too well known in this city and district to require a certificate from
any person, and the insinuation of
the organ is contemptible. If tlie
valuators were open to such unworthy influences as the organ
seems to have in view, they certainly ean bave no interest whatever la depriving the squatters of
any compensation to which thoy
have a just claim. But our cotemporary does not seem to have a
proper comprehension of tho scope
of tho valuators' work. Ho is carried away, apparently, by tho delusion that tlie squattm-s are entitled
to the lands upon whicli they squatted. Now, the bouse committee
made no such recommendation.
The committee's report recommends
compensation only. In tbo case of
Messrs. Sprott, Mackie and Mc-
Phaden the committee expresses the
opinion "that justice would be fairly done if the government should
consider favorably compensation for
improvements." There is no mention of lands here. With respect
to the claims founded upon tho notorious Spinks title, aiid the Greer
claim, the committeo recommends
nothing, and it explicitly reports
that Mr. Taylor's claim be not
allowed, hi tho case of tbo Stewarts and Matheson who, the committee states, were "misled" by the
immigration agent, it is recommended that the government considers
their cases for "compensation." In
fact the committee's report, whicli
tbe house adopted by a large majority, is doddedly opposed to out
cotemporary's notion that these
squatters ought to obtain tlie lands
tbey attempted to take up. The
duties of Messrs. Turner nnd
Hughes are therefore extremely
light. They are to examine the
lands occupied by those persons
upon whose cases tho committee
reported favorably, and appraise the
actual improvements. For this
duty they are eminently qualified,
and we are sure their valuation will
be a just one and one that will be
accepted with confidence by the
public.

A Possible Coiisequenee.>
•A very rerpectable and influential
farmer in Surrey sends the following
extract, witli a request that it would
appear in The Columbian: "An afl'eot-
ing scene, ono of tho saddest occurred
lately at the visiting window of the
jail in ono of our cities. A boy about
eighteen years old was incarcerated,
.awaiting transportation to Danemora
prison, where he is to servo a aix years'
sentence. The prisoner wns a fine
looking young fellow. His father, an
aged minister, had come to visit him.
The son stood with shamed face on one
Hide of the grating and the grief-
stricken father on the other. Drink
had been the cause of the boy's troubles. The father pleaded earnestly,
with the son to reform while in prison,
to read his Bible and improve all his
spare time in study. "Son," continued
the father, "if you had had the grace
of God in your heart you wouldn t be
here. If those oursed grog shops were
swept away I'd have beon spared aU
this. This is tlie lost time you will
probably ever seo me, I am uid and
probably won't livo your six years' out.
Oh, my buy, promise me to give yourself to God, that I may see you over
yonder," The hoy promised, and the
old mail went his wny. While this
father returns to his homo to go down
to. a premature grave in sorrow, the
Utah who ruined his son is now engaged
ih ruining other sous. Which.shall
we have, "The Home or the Baloon'/
It is within tho power of the people to
answer this question." Accompanying
this our correspondent Bends a letter
in which ho points out that an incident
such as the one described above may
very possibly happen in Surrey through
tho action of the reeve in granting a
liquor license at Mud Bay. Our correspondent is undoubtedly right, hut
we earnestly hope that the reeve's conscience may novor he haunted by the
recollection that he is responsible for
the moral ruin of a fellow creature,
Interesting War Items.
London, March 28.—Thero is a
marked lull in the war scaro; in fact,
in very sober minds thero is no war
scare at all. Some fiery Jingoes aro
beginning to ask themselves what
grounds they have had for causing all
the alarm of tho past week. The first
announcement of the Queen's summons calling out the army reserves
and militia almost created a panic. It
aroused the national pugnacity thoroughly. It mado every fighting Englishman ready to fight right away.
The pugnacity is atill up, but there is
a growing belief that it is up for
nothing. After pumping everybody
into a fever heat of excitement by
springing without notice tho call for
reserves tho ministry aro now appar-
tmtly attempting to minimize tho effect
of Her Majesty's message by delaying
tu state whnt number of militia and
reserves will be selected and put under
arms. Evory effort is made to draw
the govornment out on tin's point, but
so far without success. Ministers have
allowed reports to be circulated to the
effect thut no more than 25,000 men
are wanted. These reports originated
from sueli good authority and have
been bo persistently circulated that it
ia now generally believed, and so far,
to uso an American expression, "The
tiling has petered out."     Twenty-live

people think thnt there never was any
danger of actual conflict with Russia,
nnd that the government are even
trying to obtain glory and credit with
tho poople for having intimidated
Russia, The Army and Navy Gazette
blames the news agency for fomenting
war rumors. It charges them with
having circulated "yarns" about the
alleged hurried calling out of ships,
which ships were often actually on
duty on foreign stations. Agents of
Irish organizations have approached
thu Russian embassy in Paris with
oilers of assistance in case war occurs
between Russia and England. Theso
agents propose to foment a rising in
Ireland while England is engaged in
Afghanistan, and to fit out privateers
in America to prey upon British commerce. All they ask is that Russia
Bhall furnish their Irish allies with the
means to carry out thoir part of the
bargain and they offer to work as
cheaply aa possible. Overtures to
Turkey for an alliance with Russia are
still under consideration, Diplomatic
advices from Athens and Constantinople censure the uncorroborated report that negotiations have been for

A Booming Settlement.
Editor Columbian—Some three miles
east of Langley there is a fine tract of
agricultural land, whioh promises to become a valuable settlement in thlB district, and F feel proud to state that the
majority of the settlers are of the desired
class and seem to pull well together.
Every few days we hear of a house being
built, Last week Mr, D, MoCallum had
a raising to put up a house; this week
Mr. JamiBou put up a hoUBe; a number
of others contemplate building forthwith. Mr. Vannetta did good work last
year in locating thoso people, and his
appointment was a good ono; ho is the
right man in the right place, and as
there is considerable more land yet to bo
taken up and immigrants are daily arriving in our province, I would advise the
appointment of Mr. Vannetta to the
same position forthwith. Moreover, I
am proud to stato that tho majority of
those new settlers are highly in favor of
onr present government and the course
they are pursuing. The greatest drawback at present is the want of a road
direct to the Fraser river and the opening of tho township line between townships 11 and 14 direct to the Fraser
river would he of great benefit to the
new settlement, as by Mr, Vaunetta's
report tho greatest number of settlors
havo settled upon that line, . The government built a part of this road last
year and tlie settlers are anxious to have
the balance opened to the river, as tlie
river is thoir natural highway to market.

The Mud Bay License.
Editor Columbian.— In your issue of
tho 25th inst., the reevo of Surrey takea
occasion to find fault with the action of
thosu gentlemen who, contrary to a previous intimation on their part, signed
the petitioo against the granting of the
license. It would have been more just
to all parties concerned if the whole
facts of  the cose had boen given.   For

health,
widely-circulated journal interested in
the matter, permit me to add the following statement: When the petition for
granting the licence, whioh was the tlyst
circulated, was presented to these gentlemen for signature, thoy declined, and
why? Because on previous occasions
and for years they had opposed the establishment af a saloon or hotel in their
midst. Failing in this, the next best
thing for the presenters of the petition
to do to further their plans was to secure
if possible a promise that they would
sign no other. By some this proposition
was also declined; but others, impressed
with tho seeming fairness of the idea and
not weighing the results of such an unpremeditated concession, gave their consent. The position of the reeve to favor
the granting of the license continuing
unchanged despite the arguments and
appeals of personal friends, interested
parties, and it being stated that one of
the other magistrates bad assured those
who had conversed with hiin on the subject that his action in the license case
would bo determined by the majority,
these gentlemen, believing that a petition from a majority of the residents to
oppose the granting of the license could
bo obtained and that auch a petition
would be entitled to at least some consideration on the part of the licensing
board, upon second thought, taking into consideration existing circumstances, withdrew their promise by affixing tlieir names to Mr. Stewart's petition.
Theirs is not the only instance where
men of judgment, to meet unforaeen
emergencies, have needfully broken un-
heedful vows. Hence their hesitancy,
which, happily, was not of long duration,
was not so muoh due to any indecision
respecting the expediency of bringing
liquor iuto the settlement, (their minds
had not changed as others liad been on
that point), bnt rather to that regard
for their word which had been given in
an unguarded moment; and it was impossible for the reeve or any ono else to
he misted {as he seems to imply), beforo
tho licensing court met, respecting their
position on the question of whether, or
not, tho license should be granted.
Yours truly, Surrey.

Rawui. Pindi, Mar. 27.—Earl Dufferin, Viceroy of India, hns arrived here.
He was accorded a most imposing reception by Abdurrahman, Ameer of Afghanistan, in his address of welcome, hoped
the councils to which tho Earl had come
so far to attend, would bn so guided as
to insure honorable and lasting pcuce.
In reply, Lord Dufferin said he was glad
his first public act as Viceroy of India
was to cultivate friendly relations with
sovereign states, contiguous with the
frontier of India, "I trust," continued
Lord Dufferin, "that my friendly recep
tion whieh is about to he accorded me,
as Hex Majesty's representative, hy tlie
Ameer, will provo to our neighbors our
firm Intention and our anxious desire to
respect their rights." At the railway
depot at Rawul Pindi, were assembled,
when the train carrying Lord Dufferin
arrived, Piinjauh chiefs and Generals
Stewart, Roberts, Hanimgu, and a numbor of other high ofllcials. After the interchange of official and personal greet
Ing, Lord Dufferin proceeded to the
camp, The route was lined with troops.
Military display was very effective The
soldiers greeted the Viceroy with great
enthusiasm, Authorities at Rawul Pindi, later in the day, presented Lord Duf
ferin with an address, declaring their
loyalty to her British Majesty, tho Empress of India, and expressing their appreciation of the honor done Rawul Pindi
by selecting it as tho meeting place of
the council. In their address, Rawul
Pindi authorities concluded as follows:
"Thisrecognititioii of our dignity will confirm, that confidence in ue, which has
been so long established, and which it
daily receiving expression from rulers in
India." Earl Dufferin responded very
happily, and ended by Baying, "offers of
loyalty to service made upon this occasion are most eloquent proofs to England
of the steadfast good faith and noble confidence of our friends."

Ottawa, Mar. 27.—In the commons
to-night the following telegram from
Lieut.-Col. Irvine, dated Fort Carlton,
via Winnipeg, March 27, to Sir John
Macdonald was read by the premier:
"A party under my command has just
arrived here, and when near Fort Carlton
I found Major Crozier with a party of
one hundred men, who hod gone to Duck
Lake to secure large Quantities of pro*
visions of supplies. They were met by
some one hundred rebels, who had an
advantageous position at Heardy's reserve, and endeavored to surrouud Major
Crozier's force of police and civilians.
Just when firing became general Crozier,
owing to the disadvantage under whioh
he was working, retreated in good order.
Twelve of his party were killed and
eleven wounded.
Sydney, Mar. 28.—In tho Bculling

Sydney, Mar. 28.—The race between

Championship course on the Paramatta
river, aud was largely witnessed. The
weather waa fa/orable and the water
smooth. Both oarsmen were in excellent
condition. Hanlau and Beach, after the
start, kept well together for some distance, The race was close and exalting.
The Boulters approached the winning post
almost bow and bow. Excitement among
spectators was great. When pulling with
all their strength for the winning post
Beach overhauled Hanlan and increased
his advantage until the very finish, amid
wildest excitement.
Suakim, Mar.28—A rumor prevails here

winning by two lengths.
London, Mar, 28.—According to the
latest information, the viotory for Oxford
is morn decisive than was at first reported. They won the race by 3 lengths instead of two. Time, 21 min., 313 sec, a

Toronto, Mar, 28.—The excitement
here continues unabated. From an early
hour the approaches to the drill shed
were filled with people waiting in expectation of the departure of the troops. The
Royjil ^Grenadiers mustered at 8 o'clook;
notwithstanding the early hour, and the
fact that the sergeants were unable to
find time last night to notify all members
of their companies, they turned out 300
strong. After they were dismissed, the
Queen's Own mustered and showed a
creditable turn out of 042. There Is the
wildest excitement among them, and men
who had left the regiment, when they
heard that Col. Otter was to take corn-
command begged to be re-enrolled. Both
regiments are now in the drill shed,
anxiously awaiting ordors when to start,
A selection of 250 men frem eaoh regiment will not be made'tilt definite orders

city will look after the wives and families of any married men who go to the
front,
WiNNirEG, Mar. 28.—Further excite-

There was another skirmish and eleven
more men were killed, but this is not

Ninth Battalion left here last night and
reaohed Qu'Appelle this morning, where
they joined the first detachment of the
field battery of' fiO and 15 cavalry, and
left this morning for the west, It is understood in military circles that General
Middleton will not advance immediately
with his troops, but will await for further
developments. He was heard to remark
that if the rebels nieam to fight he will
not advance without a stronger forco,
Washington, Mar. 28.—The secretary
of state has received tho following telegram from the president of the Central
and South America Cable Company,
dated March 27th, just received from tlie
superintendent of this company at Panama: The crew of tho Columbian gunboat
Boynca, landed at the mouth of the
Buena Ventura river yesterday, and

U.S. naval vessel at Panama. The Colombian gunboat is still at anchor at the
mouth of the Buena Ventura. It Ib uncertain whether the vessel is co-operating
with the national forcss of Colombia or
those iu rebellion, but we fear further
injury to our cables and interference with
international communication. The dispatch was referred to the secretary of
the navy,
London, Mar. 28.—A dispatch from
On Iran and Penjdeh shows the situation
on the Afghan frontier is unchanged.
The commission under the command of
Sir Peter Lumsden oompleted ths basis
for a delineation of the boundary and are

Suakim, Mar. 28.—Tho mimber of sunstrokes among the troops daily increases.
The troops uro greatly over-worked with
convoy duty during the day and sentry
service at night. The building of the
Berber railway is suspended outside of
Suakim, owing to the inability of tho
army to afford protection along the line
beyond tho camp. The forco necessary
for such protection cannot be spared, at
least, until after the impending battle at
Tamai, which is expeoted to bo decisive,
Bhall be fought.
Brussels, Maroh 28.—Le Nord, the
Russian organ here, publishes the following significant commentary upon tho
present state of the Afghan dispute:
Tho people of Russia regard thu wholo
quarrel with sany jroitl and with no
trace of irritation, This is owing to
their convictions of the absurdity ot the
idea of any war between Russia and
England resulting from the Afghan cm-
broglio, and the impossibility on thoir
part of regarding seriously the warlike
demonstrations being made by England
in India. Le Nora also prints a Fetter
dated St. Petersburg, March 23rd, in
which the writer, who is referred to as
good authority, says the present Russian
military movement is nothing but _ pro-
cautionary measure dictated by the moat
elementary principles of national prudence.
New York, March 28.—The conncil
of the national rifle association of Great
Britain has decided that in consequence
of the very unsettled state of affairs in
England they are not justified in accepting the challenge of the national rifle
association of tbe United States to an
international contest in 1885 at Creed-
moor.
Washington, March 2fi.—Information

will be forwarded and the army ordered to march upen Pekin, It is expected Admiral Courbet will bombard Canton. Figaro states that tho French
killed and wounded in the fight'at
Langson numbered 1,200. Some papen favor impeaching tho ministry.
Excitement over the French defeat and
feeling against the government is so
strong that an outbreak is feared.
The reports that France has officially
declared war, and fears of a serious
riot and downfall of the ministry have
caused a panic at the Bourse. All the
radical newspapers roqueat the impeachment of ministers. Roohofort
demands the head of the French premier, Ferry, for hia many blunders in
Tonquin.
Paris, Mar, 30.—Gen. Negrier, who
was wounded in Friday's engagement
at Langson, is promoted to general of
division. Newspapers generally urge
the country to act with energy and
coolness. It is expected of all men
that at such a crisis party feeling and
prejudices will sink into insignificance
and there should be unanimity of sentiment in demanding a general national
effort put forth to relievo the army in
Tonquin, An order is issued directing
tbo immediate mobilization of all batal-
lions of infantry. The government
has decided to ask for volunteers from
euoh regiment and call for 50,000 maritime conscripts,
London, Mar. 30.—It is reportod
to-day in newspaper circles that the
Srespects for a peaceful solution of the
iisso-Afghan question are greatly improved during the past twelve hours.
Suakim, Mar. 30.—A convoy whioh

manieh, where they propose giving

Arab garrison at Berber. Mount Ha-
mund, to the north ot Berber, has been
strongly fortified by the enemy.

and reinforcements.
London, Mar. 30.—A dispatch from
Farii says President Grevy presided at
a council of ministers to-day. He insisted on immediate action being taken

London, Mar. 110.—A apodal from
Paris giro* tliu following account nf
the opening scenes nf the meeting of
the chamber of deputies to-day: Long
before the hour for convening iho
chamber the streets iu the vicinity
wure pneked with crowds of excited
moll. It sui-ii became evident that
trouble wai brewing lor the government, A stroiii,' force uf military wus
on hand tu prevent disorder. Notwithstanding this precaution the galleries were crowded with puoplc who
plainly showed irritation orer the
French defeat at Langson by keeping
up a noisy discussion and hurling denunciatory epithets at members of the
cabinet and their supporters ns they
entered the chambers. When Jules
Forry, tlio premier, arose to announce
the decision of the cabinet council this
morning he wns Wtdlv hissed by the
galleries. Ho had hardly finished tho
declaration when a number of deputies
of tho right sprang to their feet yelling, "Di'Wii with the wretch:'' while
above (he din could be heard the voice
of Clemenoeau as he fairly screamed
"Traitor.!" It was some time beforo
ordor was restored, and had it not
boon for the presence of troops there
is hardly a doubt that violence would
have been done, During this sceno in
tho chamber thu crowd outside became
a howling mob and made sovoral attempts tu pass the guards in ordor to
got inside, but was kept back by the
determined attitude of the military.
Toronto, Ont., Mar, 30.—Nover in
the history of Toronto has there beeu
such intense excitement shown ns was
this morning. Orders had been given
for the troops to parade at 10 o'clock
in heavy marching order, but long before that hour people filled all tho
street approaches. At 11.30 thu doors
of tho drill shed were thrown opon
aud the uri-nudiors contingent marched
out preceded by their band, playing
"The Girl I Left Behind Mo.r' The
Queen's Own followed, headed by a
bugle band.    Immediately on  thoir
appearance ringing cheers went up
from the crowd along tho route and
ladies waved thoir handkerchiefs nlong
King Btreet. The wildest excitement
prevailed, the cheering being continuous. At the Union station about 10,-
000 people assembled. The train loft
nt 12:30 p. m, for the west. The two
contingents numbor 580.
San Francisco, Mar. 30.—Count
Olorovsky, Russian consul at tin's city,
states that two Russian cruisers have
loft the Mediterranean for this port.
Their object in coming to this coast it
to do as much damage as possible to
English merchants-marine nnd the
British possessions in case war between
the two countries is declared,
London, Mar. 30.— In the house of
commons this afternoon the Marquis
of Hartington, secretary of war, said
the last advices the government had
received from St. Petersburg woro to
the effect that a peaceful solution of
tho Russo-Afghan question was more
promising than at any time since the
difficulty arose. Additional extensive
orders have been sent to Chicago to
tho meat-packing establishments. It
waB impossible for English firms tu
compote with Americans. The reports that a hundred tons of American meat had been found putrid
wero, he said, untrue.
Paris, Mar. 30.—At the opening
of the session in tho chamber of
deputies this afternoon, minister Ferry presented the government's request for a credit of 840,000,000 on
account of military operations in China. Ferry at onco moved for the
appointment of a committee to examine and report upon the credit,
and he demanded that the motion be
given priority. The motion was rejected by a vote of 308 to 61. Ferry
immediately announced the resignation of the entire ministry.
Hamilton, Ont., Mar, 30.—Two
companies of the 13th battalion are
ordered to be in readinosB to proceed
to tho Northwest.
Paris, Mar. 30. — It is generally
expeoted that DeFreyccnet, at present
a senator, or Ribort, the great French
jurist and now member of the chamber of deputies, will be called on to
form the new ministry. It is also
believed that Waddington, the presont
French ambassador, will be tendered
the ofiiee of minister of foreign affairs
iu place of Ferry, and that Leon Say,
great political economist, will be asked
to accept the post of minister of
finance in the new cabinet.
Portsmouth, Mar. 30.—Tho corvette Bacchanate is ordered ready for
sea at a moment's notice. 25 gun-
bouts and 36 torpedo boats are ready
for a cruise.
London, Mar. 30. — In the commons Hartington stated it will be
prejudicial to public interests to ex
plain the negotiations with Russia.
The latest from St. Feteraburgstrength-
ens the hope of a satisfactory solution of the difficulty. Concerning
the military preparations, Hartington
said England was under certain obligations to the Ameer of Afghanistan,
and the government thought it advisable to render ourselves able to fulfil these obligations if occasion arose.
Fitzmaurice, undor foreign secretary,
said he waB not yet aware of the
exact contents of the latest St. Petersburg despatches, but he understood
they contemplate au early meeting of
tho boundary commission.
Paris. Mar. 30.--Tiie excitement
caused by the French defeat at Langson grows apace. Rentes at once responded to the popular feeling; soon
after the opening of the bourse they
had fallen from 80 franca 32 centimes
to 78 frans 20 centimes. Shortly before 3 there was another sharp decline,
the price falling to 76 francs 90 centimes. This decline is due to rumors
of popular manifestoes made inside the
chamber of deputies. Stocks declined
more or less in sympathy. The government awaited with anxious suspense, and every rumor was eagerly
caught up and repeated, with additions.
Paris, Mar. 30,—Prior to the vote
ou the motion to appoint a committee
on the credit, Ferry read yesterday's
despatches regarding the Langson affair. He added that the retreat of the
French had been effected in perfect
order. The troops found themselves
confronted by Chinese forces whose
numbers it had been impossible to for-
see. The French general had beeu
obliged to re-onter the Red river delta
and maintain the defensive. Measures
already taten to reinforce the French
troops in Tonquin would not suffice;
it was necessary to avonge the Langson
check for the honor of the Frenoh.
Suakim, Mar. 30,— lt is not expected there will be any severe fighting in
the attack on Tamai. Each man will
carry 70 rounds of ammunition and
140 rounds will be carried fur eaoh
gun. The forces will advance in threo
brigades.
Ottawa, Mar. 30.—All is bustle and
excitement in the militia depot to-day,
preparing for the dispatch uf variouB
corps tothe Nurth-west. Sharp-shooters
are lining organized by Capt. Todd, of
the GiiveriiorGciioral Foot Guards.
Thoy met this morning at the drill
hall, but owing to lack oi means of
transportation could not leave until
Wednesday.
Ottawa, Mar. 30.- In the Iioubo of
commons to-dfty Ives thought ton
much attention was boing paid to the
rising in the North wost, He said
that in tho United States a border
outbreak wns quite a oomm.ui occurrence, but congress paid little attention to such matters. Ives wns rebuked by a member who said he felt
more concerned in tho success of some
Northwest speculations than in the
safety of the poor settlors on the
plains, who were in danger from the
Indians,
Panama, Mar. W.-The Star and
Herald bulletins published to-day say
the steamer Colon was seized to-day
at Aspinwall by the revolutionists,
who demanded the delivery of shipments of firearms mi board for the
revolution. The agent refused to
deliver. Connor, local supt. of the
Pucific Mail Co., wus first arrested,
and later the captain and purser of
thu steamer were plnced under arrest
on board. Subsequently Capt. Dow-
ell, of the General Pacitio Mail Co.,
Mr. Wright, United States consul, and
the lieutenant of the American man-
of-war Galena, were arrested and
marched off to the citadel. They
wero released at 6 o'clock on condition
that the arms be delivered, and the
delivery is not going on. The American and British war ships did nothing to protect foreign interests because
the revolutionary chief declared ho
would resist their interference by
force. Americans are indignant at
tho insults to the flag aud tho outrages to their persons and property.
The troops go from here to-night to
attack the revolutionists who uro in
strong force, and with the arms from
tho Colon probably will bo able to control events in their own wuy nnd in
their owu interests.
Paris,   Mar. 30.—All parties arc
unanimous in the determination to
prosecute the war to a successful issue.
The plan adopted by Ferry was n proposal that 45,000 troops be sent to
Tonquin und tbat u simultaneous advance be made on the gate of China.
A southern China expedition was to be
sent against Pekin. The new ministry will probably adopt this plan.
L'Intransegeant demands tho trial and
execution of Ferry. Tho losses of
Gen. Negrier's forces are now estimated at 15,000 men. GWai* Bays one-
fourth of the whole effective French
force at Langson was left on the battle
field; 100,000 Chinese troops are advancing on Cha and threaten to destroy the French forces there before
there ia a chance of being reinforced.
Gen. Trovenelli, entrenched at Hudo-
fan, is also in a critical position, being
surrounded and his line of retreat cut
off by 12,000 Black Flags.
London, Mar. 30.—All interest in
the lobby of the parliament this
evening was absorbed in the downfall
of Ferry, It iB believed tho crisis
will weakon the influence of France
abroad and limit her power of meddling with British projects for a lung
period, hope being thut the succeeding ministry may be short-lived, and
not bo trusted by other European
governments.
Paris, Mar. 30.—In his Bpeech iu
the chambers yesterday Clomencau said

Berlin correspondent says Turkey rejected the Russian overtures for nn
alliance, and refused to pledge even
to remain neutral in the event of war.

He has occupied El Obid. The followers of EI Mahdi are alarmed. Gen.
Wolseley expectB to roach Cairo ou
April 13th.
London, Mar, 31.—The Paris correspondent of the Times says it ia impossible for DeFreycemet to think of a
French advance to Pekin. Tho arsenals are empty, and the state of the
country is unfavorable for bucIi a resolution.
London, Mar. 31.—Baron De Staal,
Russian ambassador, will have a conference with Earl Granville to-day.
Do Giers accepta Earl Granville's suggestion that the boundary commission
limits its workwithiu the specified zone
including Nihil Shini, Chnman and
Peudjoh ou the south. De Giers states
that the Russian commissioner will be
ready to meet Sir Peter Lumsden iu
April.

breeds and Indians.

out of the harbor.

upon.   She returned tho fire.
Winnipeg, Mar. 31.-A Battleford
dispatch says the Indians in possession
of the industrial school came in yeaterday morning and raided farm houses
on the way. They have asked the Indian agent Bowe for a conference, but
the latter will meet only the chiefs and
on neutral ground. The Orecs and
Stoneys of Eagle hills keep aloof from
the movement. Citizens are confident
of holding out until reinforcements arrive. All business is suspended. A
later dispatch says tho Indians are still
encamped around the agency. Dewdney is holding a parley with them by
telegraph from Regina, and a peaceful
settlement is expected. The reported
trouble with the File hill Indians is incorrect. The Edmonton wire is cut,
and trouble is feared there, A half-
breed from Clark's crossing whu infused to join the rebellion and wus
made prisoner, but escaped, snys Riel

some Indians, and means to fight Geu.
Perry commanding the U.S. troops in
tho North-west. Reports show no Indians crossing the boundary.

A REMARKABLE STORY.
"But do yon moun—tell me—that
it is simple speculation—that this is all
that makes you anxious t" Hester hud
never heard that speculation was immoral, and hor mind was relieved in
spite of herself.
"Ouly—simple speculation. Good
lord! what would she have ?" he cried,
in a sort of unconscious uside, with a
strange laugh; thon added, with mock
gravity, "That's all, my darling; not
much, is it? You don't think it is
worth making such a fuss about ?"
"I did not say thnt," said Hester,
gravely, "for I don't understand it,
nor what may be involved; but it cannot touch the heart.   I was afraid—"
"Of something much worse," he
said, with the same stran-'o laugh,
"What wero you afraid of ?—toll inc.
You did not think I was robbing the
bank, or killing Cathorino T
"Edward!"—sho did not liko these
pleasantries—"why do you talk so
wildly? Como in with me, and my
mother will give you some ten."
"I want you, nnd not any tea, I
should like to take you up in my arms,
and carry you away—away—where
nobody could know anything about ub
more. I should like to disappear with
you, Hester, and let people suppose
we were doad or lost, or whatever they
pleased."
''I wonder," said Hester, "why you
should hnve lived so long closo to tne,
and never found out that you wanted
me so much till now. Oh, don't laugh
so! You havo always been very coul,
und quito master of yourself till now."
"It was time enough, it appear*,
when you mako bo little response," lie
said; "but all that is very simple if
you but knew. I had to keep well
with so many. Now that it is all on n
turn of tho dico, und a moment may
decide everything, I may venture to
think of myself.""
"Dice! What you Bay is all nbout
gambling, Edward."
"So it is. my sweetest. It is u trick
I have got. Chance is everything in
business—luck, whatever that may bo:
so that gambling words are the only
words that come natural. But don't
leave the talking to me; you cau talk
better than I can; you are not a sileut
angel. Tell me what yuu thought that
night. Tell mo what this little heart
is saying now."
Hester was not touched by that
reference to her little heart, but n
great one, bounding wildly iu her
breast with perplexity nud pain, ns
well as love, but ready for any hemic
effort.
"If I wore to tell you perhaps you
would not like it, Edward. It makes
me hnppy that you should want me,
and lean on mc, and givo mc yuur
burden to bear; but I want so much
more. Perhaps I um not so j>entlo as
women ought to be. My mother would
be content, but I am not. 1 want to
know everything, to holpyoii to think,
to understand it nil. And besides,
Edward— Nn, one tiling is enough;
I will not say that."
"Then, Edwurd, coino home nnd let
iny mother know. Sho will betray
nobody. Wu ought not to incut in
the dark liko two—to send hidden
notes. Wu ara responsible to tiie people who love us. We ought to be
honest—to manium. to Catherino "Vernon."
"Wo ought to go and hand iu the
bans, perhaps," he said, with sudden
bitterness, "lue two—honest shopkeeper, us you say. Catherine Vernon
would givo me away. And is tliis all
you know uf love, Heater ? It, is the
woman's way, I suppose—congrauila-
tioiiB, wedding presents, general triumph over everybody. How should
you understand me when I speak of
disappearing with my love, getting
lost, dying oven, if it were together?"
Thore wus a pause, for Hester wns
wounded, yet touched, both to the
heart. She snid, after a moment almost undor her breach, "I nan understand that too." Tho faltering voice,
the droop of her head, and his own
need for her, moro urgent than oitlior,
changed Edward's sarcastic mood. He
drew hor closer to hiin, and put down
his face close to her ear.
"We must not fight," he said, "my
only love. 1 ain going away, and I
can't quarrel with you, my only love!
And I am your only lovo. Thero haa
never beeu anybody between us, 1
will como back in two or three days;
but, Hester, another time, if it should
bo for good, would you come?—with
me?"
"Elope!" Bhe said, breathless, her
eyes large in the darkness, straining
upon the face which was too noar her
own to be very clear.
He laughed, "If you like the word;
it is an innocent word. Yes, elope
then," he said.
"But why?—but why? It would
wound thom all—it would break thoir
hearts; and for what reason ?" Hester
cried.
Edward wus about n woek away from
home. He had often boon away bofore, and his absence has caused no
particular commotion; but now it affected a good many people. To Catherine, if it wero possible, it might ho
said to have been a certain relief. He
and Bhe had got over that explanation
when shu had intended to say so many
things to hiin, und had found the
words taken out of Iter mouth. All
things hnd gono on again in their iiHiinl
way; but tiie miipicii-n which he hnd
supposed to er.int bo long without any
reason uow had actually arisen in her
mind, She showed it loss than he hud
supposed hor to show it when she had
no such feeling. Hho was on her guard.
She did not worry him any longer by
her old affectionate way of going to tho
window to watch him when ho went
out; that had been simple lovu, admiration of his orderly, regular ways,
pleasure hi tho sight of him; but somehow, instinctively, since she had begun to doubt she came to perceive thb
interpretation he had put upon it, and
she did it no longer. But at night,
when all was still in the Iioubo nnd Edward down-stuirs at work in his room,
or supposed to be at work, if any sound
of the door closing echoed upward,
Catherine would steal behind the curtains to watch if it was hewho was going
out and whioh way ho took. She bettered him, nf course; but yet there
was nlwnya a longing in her soul to
nsk, waa ho really, roally sure that ho
was true 1 Doubts like these are beyond the power of any bat tho sternest
self-command to crush, und Catherine
was capable of thnt in his presence,
She would not betray her anxiety to
bim; but whon he was not there, no
such effort was necessary, and ahe betrayed it freely to the silence, to the
night, when there was nobody to soe.
And her thoughts had traveled fast
and far since thit evening. She had
no longer ilny doubt thnt he loved
somebody, ana she had made up her
mind that it was Hester who was the
object of bts love. This had caused
har» perhaps, tbe greatest mental con-
flict she had ever known in her life—
for her life had this good thing in it,
that it had been wonderfully free from
struggle. She had boen the arbiter of
all things in her little world, aud nobody had made any actual stand against
her will. Many pretenses had surrounded her, feigned assents und furtive oppositions, but nobody had stood
out against hor. It wns a groat wonder to her tlmt ho ur any ono should
do so now (though he did not: he had
opposed hor iu nothing, nor oven said
a word from which it could be inferred
that ho rejected or questioned Catherine's sway), but with all her natural
strength of mind she Bet horself to
reconsider the question. If Bho disliked Hostor before, if for all these
yenrs tho bright-eyed, all-observant
girl, mutely defiant to hev, had boen a
aort of Mordecai to Catherine, it is
not to bo supposed that she could
easily receive hor iuto favor now. Her
parentage, her looks, her mind, her
daring sotting up of her own porsou-
ftlity as a ohild, as if she were something important, had all exasperated
Catherine. Even ilie consciousness of
her own prejudice, of tho fully of remembering against a girl the follies of
her childhood, helped to nggravuto
this sentiment; nor was it likoly that
thu Tact that this girl was Edward's
cIiobou love should mako her heart
softer. Sho said to herself that bIio
could not endure Hester; but yot she
prepared herself fm- the inevitable
from tho first day. Perhaps sho
thought it well to propitiate fato by
going to tho vory furthest length at
once and forecasting nil that tlio most
evil fortune could bring her.
It cost her a sharp nud painful struggle. No ono knew what wna going on
in her mind in those wintry days of
thu early year; her pre-occupation was
attributed tu other things; afterward,
when events seemed to account for it,
her wonderful prevision was admired
and wondered at. But in roality tho
previsions iu Catherine's mind were all
of one kind. She saw a series of events
happen in succession, as to which sho
was as confident ns if they wore past
already; and in her imagination she
did the only thing that nobody oxpected nf her, the thing which fato did not
demand of her—she made up her mind
that she would make no stand against
this hateful thing. Whnt was the use
of it ? If the young but held out, evon
the most unwise and most cruel, they
must win in the end, It would not be
for her dignity, she said to herself, to
stand out, She would make no opposition to Edward's choice. Tho separation that muat ensue she would bear
as alio could—with dignity, at least, if
nothing else. The elevation of her
enemy and her enemy's house she must
submit to. Shu would withdraw, she
would have no hand in it; but, at least,
she would not oppose. This, by dint
of a hard fight, Cathorine obtained of
herself. She wuuld say nothing, forestall nothing, hut at the snme timo
oppose nothing. All tho long hours
which u lonely woman must spend by
herself sho appropriated to this—she
must loso Edward: had she not lost
him now? Ho had beon her solo weakness, her ouo delusion; and it was uot,
sht> said to herself, a delusion; the boy
had loved her and been true to her.
Ho had made her happy, like a mother
with a truo son. Cut when that vagrant sentiment cornea in which is culled lovo (the fools! as if tlie appropriation of thu name to one kind of affection, and that tliu most selfish of ull,
wiii not a Room to lovo, tho real, tho
all-enduring!), what wag previous virtue, what was truth and gratitude nud
every.lung else in life iu comparison 1
Of course they muat all give place to
tho fascination of a pair of shining
eyes. Fnther and mother, aud homo
and duty, what wero they iu comparison? Everybody wtui aware of that;
and tho old people struggled often
enough^ aa wus .well known. Sometimes they appealed to heaven and
enrtli, sometimes woro hysterical, and
made vows and uttered curses. But
in tlie long-run tho battle was to the
young ones, They had timo nnd pas-
si'iii, and universal human sympathy
on their side, whereas the old peoplo
had nono of all these—neither lime to
wait, nor passion io inspire, nor sympathy anywhere in heaven or earth.
Catherine said to hentulf proudly that
shu would not e:;poae herself to the
pity whicli attends the vanquished.
She would retire from tho fray. She
would clothe heraelf in doublo armor
of stoicism, and tench herself to see the
humor in this as in su many things.
Was not seeing the humor of it the
last thing thnt remained to the noble
soul amid tho wonder of lifo?
Her senso, however, of this great
downfall which was approaching, and
in which she meant to act so proud nnd
magnanimous a purt, waa bo strong and
bitter that Edward's absence waa a relief to her. Sho expected overy day
that he would present himself before
her nnd burst forth into some agitated
statement —a statement which she
would not help out with a word, but
which aho would receive, not as he
would expect her to receive it, with
opposition and wrath, but with the
calm of one who knew all nbout it nnd
hnd made up her mind to it long ago.
But when ho wna absent she felt that
hero waa a respite. She was freed
from the eager desire sho had against
her will to know what he was doing,
whore ho wont, who ho waa with,
which tormented hor, but which she
could not subdue. All this ferment of
feeling wub stilled when he was awny.
She did not ask why he Bhould go away
so often, what tho business wns thnt
called him to Loudon. For tho first
time in her life alio was overmastered
by a conflict of individual feeling; nnd
Bho wns glad whon thero name a lull in
it, nnd when tho evil day was postponed, She went on seeing her friends,
visiting and being visited, keeping a
fair faco to tho world nll the time,
But it began to bu whispered in Bed-
borough that Catherino Vernon was
beginning to fail, thnt there wore signs
of hur breaking up, thnt she began to
show hor ago. Poople began toaBk
each other about her, "Have you
seen Catherino Vernon lately? How
did you think she wua looking?'' and
to shako their heads. Some snid sho
had been so strong a woman always,
and had taken so much out of herself,
that probably the break-up would bo
speedy if il waa truo thnt she was beginning to break up; while others held
more hopefully that with her wonderful constitution she might yot rally
and see twenty years more of comfort.
The fact was that hIio wub oot ill at all,
It seomed to her that she was more
keenly alivo, more highly strung to
every ubb of existence than over, Sho
saw butter, heard more quickly, having
overy sense on the alert. Nothing had
au quiokened her and stimulated her
powers for yoars. She was overy now
duy which might eurry some now crisis
in it. Sho did not oven feel the deadly chill of Edward's desertion for the
intense occupation which the whole
matter brought her.
