it n speocli ilelivoicd in tlie Pro-
jinl Legislature lust Monday Mi',
: ilavio said "there was no tisn in
ijiig Clitneso away  until   tlieir
,j- could be supplied by white imitation."   Tliis   is precisely th*
') held and recently expressed by
Dolumman. If the Chinese now
voyed in British Columbia were
'tin out to-morrow, tlio loss to
l:|y of our industries would  bo
I'v serious.    The same remark ap-
„■ to a largo portion of tho Ameri-
.iterritory lyinK upon tho Paoilic
j),   Our local works and indus-
maro far in advance of tho whito
•Ration, and the choice is simply
i'.«Ki> help nnd no help at all.    If
tlocal  politicians would tell  us
*lbout the Chinese grievance and
, about their immigration poli-
.they would  be apt  to engage
'Vtiipnthiun of thinking men to a
Hi larger extent.    No resident in
tnli Columbia  needs to be told
ithfi Chinese working classes are
'nost undesirable of nll our pop-
Ion. They are nothing but bond-
' whoso labor tho Chinese task-
•Jors use for thoir own enrich-
f.  They aro absolutely valueless
^'itiiions, for they bring nothing
5 J them and do not oven leave na
|J bonos to enrich the noil.   Thoy
|,| practically nothing," and tlieir
;? ings go either into the pockets
8-jtoir owners, or back to the coles-
; ,'impiro.    But after ull that has
|il said, the Chincso are, under
|,iit circumstances, a necessary
|n'in this country; and they will
|i)iiue  so to be until sufficient
• 't labor is secured to supply their
j is.   It   is, therefore, the first
M ot  our  Government   to  act
'. ptly, energetically and liberally
,-ttvising au immigration scheme
i shall bring to this province
competent   to  undertake   the
ii now being performed by Chi-
!'    Whon   the  fruits of   that
ijjio begin  to show themselves,
we shall be in a position to
intelligently with tho Chinese
ion.   We believe the Govern-
, luivs an immigration schema
under  consideration, and we
it will turn out to be something
iicnl and   thorough.   There is
'■l question of greater moment to
country.    Mon who havo t.ied
'Chinese on public works find
. they are both costly and unsat-
itory.   The railway contractors

i: scarcely any Chinamen would

(icrlo   practically   nothing   has
i'i done for immigration.   As the

Governor-General's Speech.
Tlio following report contains nll the
paragraphs of public interest of the
Speech from tho Throne at tho opening iif the Canadian House nf Commons:
It fo my pleasing duty ou the opening of a now ptufiament to congratulate you on the auspicious circumstances under which you will begin your
Inborn.
Oimndn is hi the onjoymont of pence
and prosperity, and nll her industries,
agricultural, umnufnoturing nnd commercial, nro in a healthy nud improving condition.
Following tlio example of my distinguished predecessor, I paid a visit of
some length to British Columbia last
season. The great natural resources
of that province promise that as soon
ns the Pacific Railway is completed an
impulse to its prosperity, commensurate with the progress mado elsewhere,
will bo assured. Meanwhile, the disposal of the lauds set aside hi aid of
the railway to actual settlers wil! add
to the importance and wealth of tlie
province.
While passing through tho United
States I was rejoiced to observe many
evidences of regnrd for the empire uf
whicli this country forms so large a
portion. May this friendship, whicli
is so fully returned by us, be as enduring as it is natural and advantageous
to the mutual interests of both great
nations.
Tho stendy flow of settlers into Manitoba and tho Northwest territories last
yoar, and the assurances received of an
increased immigration during the coming season, promise well for the early
development ot those fertile und salubrious regions.
It is important that the laws relating to the representation of the people
In parliament should be amended, and
the electoral franchises in existence in
tho several provinces assimilated. A
measure for this purpose will be submitted for your consideration.
I am advised that the judgment of
the lords of the judicial committee of
the privy council, delivorcd last June
un the appeal of Russell vs. the Queen,
goes to snow, that in order to prevent
the unrestrained sale of intoxicating
liquors, and for that purposo to regulate the granting of shop, saloon, and
tavern licenses, legislation by the Dominion parliament will be necessary.
Your earnest consideration of this important subject is desired.
Bill for the consolidation and amendment of the laws relating to the customs, tho militia, and the public lands,
will bo laid before you.
Among other measures, bills will bo
presented to you respecting the civil
service, tho nets relating to banking
and the examination of masters and
mates of vessels navigating our inland
waters.
I am glad to be able to inform you
that the progress of the Canadian Pacific Railway has been quito unprecedented. Traffic can now be carried oh
the main line from Thunder Bay to
within fifty miles of crossing of the
South Saskatchewan, a distance ef
over ouo thousand miles. It is confidently expected that the Rocky Mountains will be reached during the present year, and that within tho same
period substantial progress will be
made on the Lako Superior Section of
tho railway, and the track laid upon a
large portion of the road now under
contract iu British Columbia.
I have also pleasure iu stating that
the traffic ou the Intercolonial railway
is largely iu excess of any former yoar,
and that the balance in favor of the
rond shows a gratifying increaso,
Vou will bo pleated to learn that,
notwithstanding the expenditure on
capital account amounted to moro than
Bevon million of dollars, tho surplus of
tho consolidated rovonue. together with
the proceeds of tho sales of the lands
in tho northwest during the year, worn
moro than sufficient tu cover that expenditure, and that tbe not debt at
the close of the year and tho amount
of interest [laid thoreon wore loss than
for the yoar previous.
A gentleman who had taken the
right of shooting over a moor in Ayrshire at a high rent, bagged only two
brace the first day. After counting
the prico, ho grumolingly remarked to
the tenant of tho moor that the birds
had cost him two guineas the brace.
Tho tenant very innocently replied:
"Awool, sir, ye mny bo thankfu' ve
hae gotton sao few o' them; they'ro far
too dear,"
'I guess there's no need of my naming tho value of that parcel," said a
shnip countryman tn tho clerk of an
express office; "if it is lost you have
onough provisos on tho back of this
recoipl tu hinder a dozen lawyers from
recovering anything from the company."

It costs $800,000,000 a yonr to
support the armies of civilized
Em-ops, and nearly 12,000,000 of
the strongest and ablest men aro
kept in perpotuul idleness to preserve the traditional military glory.
Next to America, Europe is tlie best
civilized continent ou the globe, but
civilization seems tu have achieved
very littlo in tho way of military reform, tf $1,000,000 of tliis vast ox-
puuditiiro wliere devoted each year
towards sending emigrants to British Coiumbin, tho civil and social
benefit would be beyond estimate,
and Europe would hnvo $799,000,-
000 left for the purpose of teaching
her people the most expeditious way
to kill thoir enemies.
The Government of Ontario has
taken steps to establish model cream
oricB for tho purpose of endeavor
ing to secure a higher standard and
more uniform production of butter. •
According to the statement of tho
president of tho Ontario Dairymen's
Association 50,000,000 lbs. of butter
wero exported from Canada during
1882, and it is assorted thnt the
average price obtained was 10 cts.
per lb. less than it should have been
if the butter hod been properly manufactured. The depreciation represents an annual loss of $5,000,000 a
year. Butter in British Columbia
needs reform as much as in Ontario,
mid we believo thero are now some
settlements sufficiently advanced to
justify the establishment of creameries. There is lots of money in the
business, if properly conducted, for
butter alwayB briiigs big prices in
this market.
debtor or person ugainst whom tlio
process issues is indebted for salary
or wages, may apply by summons iu

out of which the process issues, and
it shall be lawful for such Judge
upon such application and upon proof
of the claim of such clerk, sorvant,

much as shall be due to him from
the execution debtor for salary or
wages not exceeding three mouths'
arrears and uot exceeding one hundred and fifty dollars, to he paid to

The "Homestead Amendment Act,
1883," introduced by Hon. Mr.
Drake, provides that "no goods or
chattels, excepting household furniture aud wearing apparel of the settlor or his family to tho value of
one hundred and fifty dollars, and

Paper Balls.
A prominent railway man. in tlie
Unitod States gives it as his opinion
that paper rails must eventually
supersede iron and steel rails for
railway purposes. It must bo generally known that modern processes
arc ablo to manufacture articles out
of paper which have tho strength
and hardness of iron, and capable of
resisting moisture and heat. Paper
car wheels have beon in use for
many years, and paper furniture is
extensively made. Paper rails,, it is
claimed, possess many important advantages. They ara very much
cheaper, last longer, nnd make a
much smoother road. The rails, on
account of their lightness, can be
mnde of great length ; and as temperature does not. contract and expand them, they may be laid with
tho ends close together and solidly
fastened in an unbroken line. It is
also claimed that the smoothness of
the road will effect a saving in fuel,
and a locomotive will be able to
draw a larger load because tho
wheels get a better grip of tho rails.
Paper car wheels on paper rails
should certainly lessen very materially the noise and jar whioh detract so
greatly from the pleasure of railway
travel, and we hope the invention
may come to be generally adopted.

Some Bills.
Among the bills before the House
is one relating to liquor licenses. It
is introduced by Mr. Pooley, and
consists of the following clause:
"Notwithstanding any ordinance,
statute or law to the contrary, applications for retail liquor licenses shall
only bo mado to a licensing court
held in tho electoral district iu which
nro situate the premises in respect
whereof the license is sought; and
no Justice of the Peace who-does
not reside in the electoral district
wherein the application shall be
made shall ait or vote upon the application, or sign or grant any certificate or license in respect of such
application." Thero have been instances where magistrates have been
imported into districts for the express purpose of granting liquor
licenses, when tlie resident magistrates were opposed to the license.
Thin bill, if passed, will very properly put an end to such practices.
Tho "Creditors Belief Act," intro-
tlncod'by Mr. T. Dnvie, consists ulso
of one principal clause, which is as
follows; "In case of any writ of
fieri facia* or execution against goods
or lands, any clerk, servant, laborer
or workman to whom the oxeoution
PROVINCIAL J.EGISLATURE.
FIRST SESSION OF THE FOURTH PARLIAMENT.
MONDAY,
Mr. T. Davie presented report from
the private bills committoo on the application of J. C. Ainsworth and others
for incorporation of the Columbia and
Kootenay Railway and Transportation
Co. Mr. Orr presented a minority report from the same committee stating
that the rules of the house had not
been complied with hy the proposed
company. He said the advertisement
had appeared only in the Victoria papers whereas thero were two papers
published at New Westminster which
had a larger circulation on tho mainland than tho C'o'tnm' and Standard.
Hon. Mr. Hobson sapportod Mr. Orr's
statement to the eil'ect that the circulation of Victoria papers on the mainland was net as great as those of New
Westminster. In bo vast au undertaking as that proposed by tho Kootenay company, however, ho thought
the objection should not be pressed.
Mr. Allen expressed himself opposed
to the monopoly the company proposed
to establish. It would bo giving the
country away to Americans.
An aot to incorporate tho Frasor
River Railway Co. was read a first
time. The scope of the bill will be
found elsewhere, Also, an net to remove certain disqualifications of Justices of the peace; an act to legalise
tho appointments of certain provincial
officers; nnd an act to fix tho times fer
holding courts of assize and other
courts.
Mr. Orr moved that a committee be
appointed to visit the asylum at New
Westminster and report as to the manner in which it is conducted and the
adaptability of the present building
for the safety, comfort and recovery of
patients. He said the superintendent
had reported that the building was too
crowded, and from his own observation he was prepared to say that it was
altogether unsmted for the cure of the
insane. Iu the interests of humanity
some stops should be taken to remedy
the defects. Mr. Armstrong said he
would not oppose the inquiry, but he
objected to an adjournment of the
house to allow a committee to go to
New Westminster. It was a question
for tho Government. On the assurance that the Government would take
the necessary stops Mr. Orr withdrew
his motion.
Tho following bills wero then read a
first time: The sleigh regulation act;
an act to amend the coroners inquest act; an act to amend tho mineral act.
Replying to Mr. On, the Premier
said the amount claimed by Mr. Murchison, of Langley, was 8403.48, for
work dono under contract, and that
payment had been refused by the late
Government on two different pretexts.
Also, he stated that there was no information in the departments to show
the relative cost of dry-dock construction by day labor and by contract.
He found, however, that from July lit
to Jan. 1st the daily average for wages
was (236.
In reply to Mr. Pooley the Premier
said the Government had under consideration the propriety of offering a
bounty for the destruction uf wolves
aud panthers,
Mr. Beaven moved that the attention of the Dominion Government be
called to a minute mode on the 19th
August refering to the Chinese question. Mr. T. Davie mode a long speech
on the subject, stating that while he
was as anxious ns any member to get rid
of tho Chinese, ho was ef opinion
that the only practical way in which
tho difficulty could bo removed was by
inducing white laborers to come to
this province. Ho blamed tho late
Government for neglocting to ndvise
tho .Ottawa authorities ef the magnitude of tho evil, and ncglec'ing also to
take steps for the encouragement nf

Tho closing meeting of the series

Club, took placo on Tuesday evening
last in tho Skating Rink and was iu
some roapeots the most successful of

of the Princes:- Louise with the Eastern mail just at the hour for assembling, the hall was woll filled. Tho
iustrmuoutal mimic was furnished by
Miss White on tho piano and Prof.

loss to say that it was good and thoroughly appreciated, Addresses- wero
doliverod by tho Chairman, Uov. E,

though still suffering from n sovore
cold, delivered a powerful speech,
which was frequently and heartily applauded. During the mooting the
groatost enthusiasm prevailed and 37
names wero added to tho Blue Ribbon
army. Many of tho recruits were
from tho young mon of the city and
the noble stand taken by them gives
good hopen for thoir future. A collection, amounting to $33, waa taken
up, whieh, with the amount taken dt

Boforo tho close of tho meeting a vote

Langley Prairie Soiree.
Au esteemed ' correspondent, who

sends us a very glowing description of
the bachelors' soiree held at Langley
Prairio on tbo 23rd ult. Our correspondent says "tbo nlfair was a decided
success. They camo from near aud
from far, on horBCS, wagons and sIoigliB.
Pooplo who whon at homo wore nearly
20 miles apart here shook hands. It
was a pleasing sight to soe whole families, smiling couples, and jolly bachelors como trooping into tho houso,
which had been tastefully decorated
with fostooua, obandolior of cvorgreou,
and various well-chosen mottoes. At
the first glance ono could see that tho
commit.ee of management had spared
no pains to mako it a thoroughly enjoyable affair." After ample justice
had beon done to tho refreshments,
which wero excellent and abundant,
Roy. Alex. Dunn, the Chairman,.in n
law appropriate remarks, announced
tho programme. It consisted of several selections by the choir; recitations
by Messrs, Rawhnson and Sinclair;
readings by Rov. T, H. Gilbert, Misa
Elida Robinson, and Mr. Sluggott;
addresses by Rev. W. J. Dowler, B.A.,
Rov. T. H. Gilbert, and Robt. Norris,
Esq.; songs by tho Misses Robinson,
Mra. Johnson, Miss Norris, and
Messrs. Bovill, Smith, Benjamin, and
Sinclair. Moat of the pieces were well
rendered and many of them enthusiastically encored. During intermission additional refreshments were
passed among the delighted audience.

British Columbia Views.
The London Graphic of January
27th, contains a series of illustrations,
from sketches by the Marquis of Lorno,
representing the salient features uf the
country traversed by his excellency
and the Princess Louise, on their visit
to British Columbia. Tho Graphic
says; "His excellency's original
sketohes aro . admirable—quite equal
to those executed by professional artists." The illustrations are as follows:
San Francisco Bay from tho (i olden
Gate; tho Golden Gate; H. M, S.
Gomus leaving tlie harbor accompanied
by General McDowell; tho forts saluting; Government House, Victoria, B,
C; Mount Baker and San Juan Island; Bridge on C. P. R. j Yale, B. O. j
Gorges of the Fraser Rivor; Indians
at Lake Okanagon; Burrard Inlet;
Village of Kamloops; River Terraces
on tho Thompson River; The Narrows
ou Schuswappo Lako; Spillinacheen
Valley; Torchlight Boat Festival at
New Westminster in honor of tho
Princess Louise; The- Fraser River
near its mouth; The Four Sisters and
a reach of the Fraser River; The Peaks
of the Four Sisters; Meunt Hopo on
the Frasor River.* These pictures are
very finely engraved and give a good
idea of scenery on the Pacific Slope.
Their great value, however, will be
the advertisement they givo of Canada,
its scenery, extent, resources and great
public work—tho Pacific Railway. For
this his excellency deserves tho thanks
of all Canadians who not only appreciate art but also the good use mado
of it in the manner under notico,—
Colonist.
Modern Scientific Thought.
By request of the council of the
Philosophical Socioty of Great Britain
we publish tho following interesting
sketch of Prof. Stokeu' paper on evolution road beforo that society;
Tho announcement that Hor Majesty the Queen had graciously signified to tho Victoria (Philosophical)
Institute of London her consent to receive tho volumes of its "Transactions," gave additional eclat to a crowded meeting of its momb»rs, held on
tho 15th of January at tho Hall of the
Society of Arts. Tho Institute, founded to investigate all scientific questions,
including any said to militate against
Religious Belief, announced that nearly 1,000 Homo. Indian, Colonial, and
American members had now joined.
Dr. Stokes, F. R. S., Secretary and
Fellow of the Royal Society, aim Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge
University, road the paper of the evening. In it ho, as a scientific man, repudiated tho idea, sometimes given expression to, that the progress of science
would disprove the truth of Revelation,adding that the progress of soienco
constantly showed tho reverse to be
the case. Tho Book of Revelation and
the Book of Nature, rightly understood, had never yot-oltuhed. Truth
was only in danger from a want of
knowledge, we often had ovidonco of
that, and tlie progress of accurate
scientific research and its full encouragement were therefore of the greatest
value. Professor Stokes then proceeded to roviow tho hypothesis of
Darwin, remarking "there may, I will
not say must, bo nothing atheistic in
tho belief that great numbers of species woro evolved under the operation
of laws known or conceivable from
somo proccding condition of a simpler
character; in caso," he added, with
marked emphasis, "we should find
reasonable scientific evideneu in favor
ul an affirmative answer"; but the entire tonor of his paper went to detiiuu-
strate that sueh evidence was not ut
present forthcoming. After showing
from the principles uf vision that
"useful ends are brought about by
means," he went on to argue,—
"We should expect, a priori that, us
the wisdom uf the designing mind must
be immeasurably above our own, so
contrivance should as a'rule extend far
beyond what we can trace. We should
expect, therefore, on purely theistic
grounds, that tho doctrine of evolution,
assumed for trial, would bu a useful
and ordinarily trustworthy guide in
our scientific researches; that it might
often enable us to go back onu step
and explain how such or such a result
was brought by natural laws from such
or such an anterior condition, and so
might lead us to extend our knowledge
of the operation of natural causes. But
this is a very different thing from assuming it as an axiom, the application
of which may bo extended step by step
indefinitely backwards."
As for Mr. Durwin's theory of "ancestral derivation and survival of the
fittest," Dr. Stokes said it was one
which "from its nature cau hardly, if
at all, be made a subject of experimental investigation, or evon of observation in the records of tho past,"
and, therefore, must "rest mainly on
the estimate wliich may bo formed of
its own probability," "though doubt-
loss," Profesaov Stokes added, "an underlying fooling that the phonuinetion
was iu somo way explicable by natural
causes has contributed uot a littlo towards its propagation." Still tho most
he could say on behalf of Darwinism
was that it was "highly ingenious as
an hypothosiB." "I think," ho added,
"ti large number of scientific men
would admit that it is vory far indeed
from being admissible to tlio rank of a
vroll-established theory," and though
"true possibly, as accounting for permanent or sub-permanent differences
between allied forms, yet not conceivably bridging over the great gulf whioh
separates romoto furms of life" [thoso
who havo read Professor Nicholson's
"University Text-book on Paleontology" will recognise this ob his final
opinion also].
Professor Stokes, referring to the
question of the creation of man, said,
—"In tho account of tho creation it is
distinctly stated that man was separately created, 'in the image of God,'
whatever that may imply. Nor is this
a point in which, by a wide license of
interpretation, wo might say the language was merely figurative; that wo
can afford to understand it so, for that
Scripture was not given us to tench, us
science. .Our whole ideas respecting
the nature of sin aud the character of
God are, as it seoms to mo, profoundly
affected according as wo take the statement of Scripture straightforwardly,
which implies that man was created
with special powers and privileges, and
in a state of innocence from which he
fell, or if we suppose* that man camo to
be what he is by degrees, by n vast
number of infinitesimal variations from
some lower animal, accompanied by a
correspondingly continuous variation
in his mental aud moral condition, On
this latter supposition, God whs made'
to bo responsible for his present mural
condition, which is but the natural
outgrowth of the inudc of liis creation.
As regards the lower animals, little
change would apparently be made froni
a thoological point of view, if we were
to interpret as figurative the language
which seems to assert a succession of
creative acts. But the creation of man
and his condition at creation are not
confined to the account given in Gone-
sis. They are dwelt, on at length, in
connexion with the institution of marriage. "
As against these statements "so express, so closely bound up with man's
nighest aspirations," wo have nothing
more to adduce on the side uf science,
says Professor Stokes, "than a hypothesis of continuous transmutation incapable of experimental investigation,
and making such demands upon our
imagination as to stagger at last tho
initiated."
A modified theory of Darwinism, as
applied to tho creation of man, was
thus dealt with: "Somo have endeavored to combine the statements of
Scripture with a modified hypothesis
of continuous transmutation*, by supposing that at a certain epoch in tho
worlds history mental and moral powers were conferred by divine interposition on some animal that had been
gradually modified in its bodily structure by natural causes till it took tho
form of man. As special interposition
and special creation aro here rocog-
nizod, I do not see that religion has
anything to lose by the adoption of
this hypothesis, but neither do I see
that soienco has anything to gain.
Once admit special divine interposition, aud science has como to the cud
of hor tether, Those who find the idea
helpful can adopt it; but for my own
part this combination uf tho natural
and the supernatural seems somewhat
grotesque, and I prefer resting in the
statement of a special creation.
A discussion ensued in which many
Fellows of the Royal Socioty took part,
including Sir J. llisdon Bennott, vice-
president of the Royal Society, Sir J,
Fayror, K.O.S.I., Professor Lionel
Beale, Mr. J. E, Howard, Dr, John
Rae, and others.

Wc beg to call the attention of the
tmdo and the public to the well-known
quality ami elegance of finish of our
Gold Cases, guaranteed liy us to be of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat (-.'old, as may lie
stamped, and also to our modo of selling
the same, charging only for the Actual
Wbiuht of tho gold used, and not for
the base metal comprised iu Bpriugs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc, To illustrate
wliich a tag accompanies each one of our
Gold Cases, which plainly indicates not
only the gross weight, of the ease, but
also the Net weight of the gold.
In explanation of the above we desire
to say that the old plan of charging for
the gross weight of tho caso, as if it wero
all gold, worked well enough as long as
the manufacturers were content'with the
amount of brass and steel actually required in its construction; but when the
business was degraded into a contest as
to who should get the most base metal
into the least quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the time-mine when,
in the interest of dealers in American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
plan of selling, hIiowuik the buyer oxuet-
Iy how much (ioi.n each ease contained.

is plainlj; engraved upon all movements,

are frequently separated from onr movements, ami put upon worthless movements nf other makers nnd dee vema,
thus affecting injuriously the performance of the Matches, nntl vitiating our

that there is grcut fraud in the metal

CHAPTER XXV.
AND WHAT CAMS OF IT.
Seated in tho little victoria, drawn
by a pair of strong bay ponies tlmt
trotted rapidly along the avenue, Ronald gave himself up to tho delight of
the hour, hardly caring to talk, so
delicious was it to sit thero close to
the woman he loved, watching her
chiseled profile or delicate hands. She,
however, was inclined to converse;
perhups she was conscious of his mute
observation, or at least be feared that
she might havo been so, and therefore
vousod himself to reply to her romarks
in his usual tone. Arrived at the
plantation, thoy left tho carriogo, ond
for more than an hour went up and
down tho long lines of young trees,
trying plant aftor plant, in order to
soo thnt tho work had been properly
dono.
Muriel inherited hor father's lovo
for his wood, and ho had ourly taught
hor somothiug of woodcraft. Ronald,
pacing along tho rig that was his turn
to inspect, aud seeing her quick movements and intorestod face, thought
how well sho was suited to hor present
life, aud wished wildly that he could
havo been her land-agent oven, rather
than exchange her society and the
fresh, healthy, country life for the
narrow streots and wearisome gayetios
of a small garrison town. Ho had boen
growing less keen of late about his
profession. Now that liis prospect of
activo service was ovor, at least for the
prosont, Ins country tastes began to
ro-nssert themsolvos, and ho thought
with impatience of daily parados and
orderly-room work. It was not his
nature, however, to grumble or harass
himself with useless repiuings. He
was a soldier, and for tho present
meant to push his way if he could.
Some day, perhaps, ho would decide
on a difl'eront career, aud in that case
would probably loovo tho nrmy as suddenly as ho entered it.
Muriol cut short his reflections by
telling him that she had completed her
share of the inspection, and asking his
opinion of the work, and they talked
the matter ovor as tho walked to the
fonco. At the carriage-step sho hesitated a • niomont-r"V; ould you mind
driving? Tho ponies will pull going
home, and my hands get tired."
"Not a bit—if you don't mind trusting tho ponies to my inexperience,"
said Ronald, taking the roms.
The bays went steadily onough, only
nooding stronger wrists than those of
their mistress to govern thom; and
after the first half-mile Ronald endeavored to resume the conversation
that had been interrupted. But now
it was Muriel who was absont and disinclined to talk, and Ronald concluded
that hor thoughts had been wnndoring
Eastward—as was too often the caso
whon ho was by—for sho presently
asked him a question about his life in
India during the first yoars of his stay.
"Did you make many friends thoro?"
she continued.
"Yes, of a certain kind,'' ho replied.
"One lady, who knew me at Hubbleporo, was good" enough to ask mo to
her house when I was on my way
home. ' I must have spoken to you of
hor—a Mrs Emerson."
"Yes, I think you havo. What is
her husband?"
"A captain in tho Ono Hundredth
Sikhs, and a very nice follow."
"And she was the lady you knew
best?"
"I could hardly be said to know
her. Sho allowed me to act with her,"
said Ronald, turning to look at his
companion. "You forgot I was a noncommissioned officer in those days."
"Sho knows you now, then?" she
replied, smiling.
"Yes, and was kindness itself when
I stayed in her house; but of course I
was only on sufferance in the theatrical
club because they wanted an actor."
"But they knew your history, 1 suppose?" said Muriel.
"I fancy so, and probably that influenced them iu bringing me among
thom. I cannot tell, however. By-
the-byo, there was one young lady who
used to talk as though I were a prince
in disguise," said Ronald, with a smilo.
"And who was she ?"
He paused, rather surprised at the
interest Muriel was showing in these
old days.
"It is very absurd; but tor the life
•f me I cannot recollect her name," ho
said, musingly.
Muriel glanced at him, aud waited a
moment; but no namo was forthcoming,
and sho continued her questions.
"Jt must have been a strange lifo
for you altogether. Had you many
friends in the ranks—among tho sergeants or their wives ?"
"What do you moan by a friend ?
I had many good comrades in tho sergeant' mess — shrewd, good-hearted,
sensible fellows; but—I don't think
I'm proud—I novor nt any timo felt
that they were among my frionds. I
have not many friends,'" ho added,
gravely.
"I should have fancied you had
many," said Muriol.
"Would you ? I wonder why."
"I think yuu havo tho power of
making yourself liked. You are a
favorite with almost ovory ono round
here."
"I wish I thought I had that power,"
rejoined Ronnld, in a low voice; "but
if I have, it must fail me whore I need
it most. I have pleasant acquaintances, but few friends. Sir Duncan
is the best and kindest I havo over
known."
He could not at that moment have
spoken of her own long friendship with
a steady voice; and somothiug in his
face must have warned her, for she
rather hurriedly returned to her
point.
"Bat was there no one among the
sergeants' wives to take an Interest in
Sou? I used to see some of thom in the
ixty-sixth, and thoy wero such kindly, pleasant women!'
"I dare say I might have known
them better had I wished it, but I-did
not. With the men I could get on
well; but somehow tho contrast between the women aud the society I
was accustomed to struok me more
sharply. Perhaps you cannot understand that," said Ronald, moro stifly
than he hud evor spoken to her before.
It hurt hiin that sho should imagine
him to havo gone to tho soldiers' wivos
for companionship. It seemed to mark
again tho distance that in her mind
must soparato him from her.
"I think I can understand," said
Muriel. "Still, thero might have been
exceptions, and your lifo must have
been to some degree a lonely one."
"One resigns one's self to the inevitable, more or less; and I contrived
to be vory happy on the whole. Thero
woro plenty of incidonts that I can
look back on with pleasure; and I met
with much kindness—far more than I
doservod," answerd Ronald, bringing
the ponies round at the door of tho
Hall.
"And have none of theso old friends
come homo—Mrs. Emerson, or your
nameless young lady, or any one you
likod 1 It would bo a pleasure if you
mot any of them in this country," said
Muriel, slowly removing the plaid that
lay across hor knee.
"I do not even know whore any of
them aro, so I fear thero iB vory littlo
chance of that," said Ronald, laying
down the reins nnd taking the plaid.
"Thanks—novor mind it. Will you
como in and have ton ?" said Muriel, in
such a strangely old nnd altorod voice
that he paused, bowildored.
"I thought I was to report upon tho
trees?" he said, hesitatingly; and sho
answered quickly, ns though to cover a
mistake,
"Oh yes; papa will expect to hear.
Pray come in.
Over the five-o'clock toa, they discussed the planting, and Sir Duncan's
eyes were as kind as his daughter's
wero cold. Ronald even fancied that
she ti voided meeting his look, and ft feeling of indignation began to rise in his
mind. What had ho dono, what could
he possible have said, that should give
Muriel a right to ropel him in this
sudden fashion. Lover as he was, ho
was too manly, two high-spirited, to
submit quietly to a woman s caprico;
and though he had never suspected
Muriel of such a weakness, he could
call her present behavior by no other
namo.
The moment he had finished his toa
iio rose to go, and Muriel felt that hor
change of manner had boen detected,
and wondered if ho would divine its
causo.
"How could he—how could he,"
sho said to herself when sho reached
her own room—"how could he toll me
that ho did not know where any of
them were, when he had seen Iter in
Edinburgh?" Sho thought that hor
question had been worded in such a
way that tho answer to it must throw
some light on tho gossip that had beeu
repeated to hor; but no sign of solf-
consciousness, no shadow of reserve,
had troubled Ronald's voico or gaze
as ho replied to her. In simple truth,
he was thinking at the moment of the
ladies of Hubblepore, and did not
dream of including Ellen Smith among
the acquaintances to whom Muriel
alluded.
She, indignant and disappointed,
thought much of tho conversation that
had passed between them. Ronald
had been so invariably good and
thoughtful—he had responded so readily to overy wish of hers, and hnd
shown such discrimination, such good
taste, in their meetings—that it was
natural sho should be bitterly vexed at
what scorned a great unworthiness in
him. She was almost glad tliat ho
was going away, so that the matter
might be allowed to drop, II he had
been remaining at home, she must
havo taken some step — must have
spoken to her father or Mrs. Bennett
for she could not have had him in tho
house on the same footing as before,
with this unexplainod affair always
troubling hor.
CHAPTER XXVI.
jamib's fall.
As though to add to Muriel's trouble,
au event happened in which, but for
the conversation recorded in the last
chapter, she would naturally have
turned to Ronald for help. Going to
to the new houses to visit some of the
tenants, she stopped as usual at Jamie
Patorson's door. She knocked twice
without hearing any answer, and was
going away when a door on the other
side of the passage opened, and a boy
looked out.
"Good-day, Tom," aaid Muriel; "do
you know if Jamie's out ?"
"Na, he isna oot; he's in his bod."
"What! is he ill, then? Has he seon
Dr. M'Arturl" asked Muriel, anxiously-
The boy grinned. "Na—he disua
need tho doctor; he's no ill — he's
drunk!"
Muriel gazed at the unwashed face
a momont—"Drunk!" sho repeated,
slowly—"are you sure ?"
"Ou ay! I ken line. He was at tho
feoin' fair yestreen, aud foytlier and
lang Jock helpit him up the stair. Ho
was awfu' bad."
Muriel wont down-stairs without
another word; but nothing that had
happened m the village since she came
home had vexed hor as much as this
falling away on the part of the old
shoemaker. What was to bo dono ?
Sho shrank from tho idea of speaking
te or oven seeing hipi herself, and she
knew no one to whom she could appeal
with the slightest hopo of any good result except Ronald, and to him she
could not bring herself to write. Yesterday's conversation was still too fresh
in hor mind; sho could not have expressed herself with hor usual readiness. She would write to Mrs. Bennett
that would be her best plan; and hastening homo, she despatched the following note;
"Dear. Mamkib,—I am so vexed, ao
disappointed! Poor old Jamie is tipsy
again. He was at that fair yesterday
(what mischief those gatherings do!)
and camo home 'vera bad.' Of courso
I did not seo him. Could Ronald go
to him ? We must try to savo him from
himself.    Ever your affectionate
Muriel."
"Dear, dear! what a pity!" exclaimed Mra. Bennett; "though I always
feared that this would happen;" and
sho handed tho note to hor son, who
read it with hurt surprise.
"Why did sho not write to me?" was
his instant thought. "Sho would havo
dono so a fortnight ngo. Whatever
might bo the meaning, thero was but
one thing to be dene—he must go up
to Jamie's at once.
