Woman suffrage.
, Upon several occasions during
tha present session of the local
legislature, the question of woman
suffrage 1ms cropped out and come
up for discission.' U h»s always
received courteous attention from a
majority of the house, and witrm
advocacy from moro than one member, On the last occasion the question was brought up directly hy
Hon. Mr. Drake, who moved that
the act respecting qualification and
registration of voters he amended
bo aa to extend the franchise to
women. Nearly every member
favored the spirit of the amendment, but most of them seemed
afraid to take the responsibility of
making the change. It was hound
to be made, they thought, sooner or
later, but they considered it best to
proceed slowly in a matter of such
far-reaching consequences. Mr.
Drake's amendment was lost on a
vote uf 7 to 11. \V« liave no
means of knowing how the 7 who
did not vote would have voted, hut
it does not require a very keen fore
sight to perceive that this question
will before long reach a definite
settlement, und that the settlement
will be in favor of woman suffrage.
There are two clusws of people
opposed to tlie movement, One of
these classes is made up of people
who are opposed to almost every
kind of reform. Thev net-in in iui
aginc that the laws nnd usages uu
der which their no'de ancessor
lived, and under wliich they them
selves have passed tlii* majority of
their days, aro quite good enough
for all time to coun*. The.other
class are afraid thut the extension
of the franchise to women would
endanger their :><*non-iI inter
ests. We believe -"both thesi
classes must giro way to progresi
and reform. The emancipation of
woman is no .new doctrine. It has
been of alow growth, but it will
eventually prevail, and we believe
the world will be httler and better
governed when women have beeu
entrusted with the franchise.

Baker then formed '» (square, which the

tho enemy, hut with his stafl* managed
to make his way through. The enemy's
forco was inferior in number to Baker
Pasha's. Only three aides of the square

companies of Egyptians stood Ht 11, being
overcome with fright. Tin enemy
poured into this gun, when tl e Egyptians threw away tlieir rifles uud (Fung
themselves upon the ground screaming

profound contempt for thoir op-ioiientu.
All the stores at Trenkatat were brought
awny. Colonel Burnaby is safe Marines
havo been lauded at tiunkcm to prevent
a panic.
London, Feb. fl.—All the special dispatches agree that Takar and i^tkat are
probably lost. The fact that ihe British gunboats have left Trenketac creates
a bad impression ou the mini's of the
Egyptians, and encourages tho ehels iu

NEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Sioux Citt, Iowa, Feb. 5. —Reports
have reached her* from Upper Elkhoru
country, in Nebraska, that Kid Wade,
the leader of the Niobrara outlaws ami
horse thieves, has heen hanged hy vigj-
lautos. The vigilantes have their headquarters r.t a place called Pen, at the
mouth of the Lout Pine. Thoy have arrested o large number of men in various
parts of Northern Nebraska, aud taken
them awny to Pen, where thoy are tried
and disposed of in some manner. The
fate of those arrcQtod is not definitely
known, hut aa they ivre never seen again
it ie supposed they are shot, hanged or
eonducteif out of the country. The terrible earnestness of the vigilantes and
the mystery of their work cause men to
shudder when their doings are mentioned. It it) positively known thut thuy
have lynched IJ men, ami ia equally sure
thnt others have met the tame fate, but
how many, And by rhat means is not
known. The Kid was captured at U-
mara, three weeks ago, hy tro of the
avengers, and he fleemed to realize the
fate tlmt ftwaited him, but manifested no
moro concern than if going about his
ordhmry busiuers.
Conuiio, Tex., Feb. 5,—This morning
tlie stage jRoiujf to Ahilen** met the incoming mail from (ihat town And gave in-
formation thnt it Imd beeu stopped eboot
m mile back, the mail robbsd uf all cash
and one passenger relievad of $J."i. The
first coach had aboard .Sergeant Furburg,
of the State Rangers; HherifT Oorald, of
Don Juan county, New Mexico; Edgar
Stetson, of Oalikoah. Wis.; Samuel P.
Cochrane, of Pallas, Tex., and a United
States soldier. The Ranger and thu
Sheriff alone were armed. They ordered
tlie driver to go ahead, aud quickly hi'd
their pistols across their laps. Wln-n the
spot wan reaohed the couch was commanded io halt by two masked men
coming from the mesquite brush. The
Sheriff tired a shot which was returned,
and thon the Ranger took aim and tired.
Hie man threw his pistol into the air,
placed his hand over his stomach, and
fell. The hones started, aud tiring from
and into tho stage continued rapidly.
The Sheriff was hit in the shoulder, uud
a second ball entered his back and passed
through his stomach. A spent ball struck
Cochrane io the back, aud three shots
passed through lilt overcoat, but he was
not very seriously hurt, The coach drove
into Concho as quickly «a possible, tier-
aid will die. This ia the third robbery
on 'die sipno stage within p, month. A
patse to-day found twees of the wounded
road agent, win* had been carded off by
hii companions. Parties are scouring
tho country, and a reward ef f 1000 has
beep offered by the citizens for the capture of tlie renter*.
Caiho, Feb, ft.— Advicei regarding the
defeat of Baker Pasha are eentliuthig,
but the following details have been received: linker Pusba begau his advance

thirteen. 'Jiiu girl, without oxnetly
unduvstttiidiiig it, had heanl diudis-
oussions between hur father und mother us to whore thu tiuu wait pi-bcured,
ami she kr.eiv Unit ii was (lesiruble
thut the pliii.K should be found. Iter

eient incentive for hor to do her purl
toward disoi vuriug the soutce of their
uiisury, and ahe uiuluituok lo iiocoiu-
plislj that wiiioll hur mothor hud failed
to do.
Su ho next night lifter the father
hud oaten his scant supper and lighted
his pipe and gone out, the girl followed, it was u bittfli* night, and she
was well nigh barefooted; She hud
no bonnet, and the thin shawl afforded
but little protection for hor head and
shoulders. Maine is a bud State for
(huuknrd's children, Tlm oold issu-
vel'e, uud tlio wind bituB shrewdly.
Tho father went down, thy street
aud Mopped awhile ut this place, uud
uwhilu in anothor, Ho did not seo a
shivering iigui-o in tho shadow, waiting us patiently ns fate, nutsklu, muf-
tlud in u thin, ragged shawl, blowing
upon her Ihigurs to keep them from
freezing. Uo did not know tlmt there
waa u detectivo ou his truck more
shrewd than nny paid by tho nervine,
and thut the ragged shawl covered
more patieuuu uud dotoriniiiuiioii tlmn
any fur upon an official shoulder.
Finally at ubuut half-past niliu he
walked leisurely down a sido streot,
Hindu a signal at tho door of u miserable house which was us dark us Erebus, and entered.
Tho wait for thu littlo thing was
loin,* und tedious. Thy intense cold
grow colder, thu wind whistled nioru
terribly than over; hur hands and feet
woro well nigh frozen; but shu stayed,
She wanted to mako sure tliat that
placo was whom hor father got his
liijuiir.
She made hor point. Aftor waiting
till nearly 1. o'clock tho wretched
man uiuutged drunk — very drunk,
tihu had no trouUu in evudiiig him,
Darting out into the darkiice-s she took
tho nhurtust wuy liuiuo, uud us .-.hu wns
oobor uud her father drunk, --lie had
muoh lum territory to cover. She was
nt home; hud told her hint hur what
liliu hud discovered, und wus shivering
in bed long bofore hu arrived.
Tho result was   very  sattsfitotoryi
The noxt day all ttlioiiymous note do-
jiouhcgd the   place,   immediately   ti
Sheriff's oiHcor was uespittohed to the
spot, u Hoi/.uiu followed, uud  the place
wus closed.
Miti oliellder was a woman who hud
carried on her business unsuspected
for a long Mine, nnd would lmvo continued longer but for the courage artel
endurance o.'   tho  little lo year-old
girl.
It is rather cbiiifortable to know
that the supplies cut oil',  tho drunken
fnthor got possession uf himself, partially, and when it wtu mado known io
1dm   by what agency he hud been
saved from himself ho reformed altogether aud became a decet)(j man.
Wives and   children ure tho best
assistants tho law has in killing out
tho nofarfouB  traffic.   Thoy uro tho
worst sufferers nud thoy have the most
interest in it.
Woe to the doulor in rum when tho
wife of tho drunkard gets on his truck.
They mid the children ure tho chief
Bufferers from the trade,   and   thoy
know no inorcy or pity.   Thoy don't
stop to split hairs nbout it.     Hum
menus to them cold uud hunger, nnd
no rum, plenty uud comfort.   It is
astonishing how little they caro for
"personal   liberty,'    and    "natural
rights." mid nll that.   They ure not
logical enough to sou that a niuu has
tho right to starve and freezo his wife
uud children.   It is a bitter fact with
thom which overrides all logic.— iVaS-      OFFICE-

Speaking of Uio efforts mado by
this province to regulate or prevent
Chinese immigration, the Week, an
independent Toronto journal, comes
to the conclusion tlmt the movement
is  made on false pretenses.    It admits that Chineso immigrants bring
■with them certain habits und customs whicli nre anything but desirable.   Among tliese nre the opiui
habit and a certain amount of innate
depravity.     But   tho   Week is of
opinion that it is not the hoathenisui
of the Chinese, nor then* immorality, but tlieir industry, wliich  tlio
agitators chiefly dread.    It thinks,
therefore, that it would not be in
the interest of the people generally
to exclude 'the   Chinese.      "There
are certain branches of industry," it
says, "in  wliich  the Chinese excel.
The question  before  us is whether
British   Columbia shall be allowed
by her local legislature to close the
labor market of the whole Dominion against a certain kind of labor.
This it  is  practically tlmt she is
going to do;  for tho ports of the
United States are shut against the
Chinese, and they   will not come
round by Cape Horn.   Withdrawal
of state aid from artisan immigration is one thing; industrial protection  by means of  exclusion laws,
whether undisguised, or masked by
moral pretences, is another."   With
all respect for the Week we submit
that it has yet many things to learn
about the Chinese question.   Theories are very good as far as they go(
but abstract theory   is often weak
when set against actual experience.
The Chinese are excellent learneis
as a rule, and may excel in certain
branches of industry, but that does
not make them desirable immigrants.
One of the chief grounds of opposition   to   them  is  thnt in British
Columbia they threaten, if allowed
to come in large numbers, to overthrow  entirely tho industries of tlie
country.      Here  it  costs a   white
man  at least 50 cts. a day (with oo
luxuries), while  a Chinaman  will
liye on less than 20 cts. a day and
be perfectly happy,     There is no
possibility of the two men entering
the   labor   market  on equal terms
unless  tho   Chineso   coolie   wonld
agree   to livo on  the white man's
diet  or  the  white  man adopt the
Chinese domestic customs.    Neither
of these things ean bo done, and tbe
consequence is that  the Chinaman
will always be able to work more
cheaply  than  the  whito man, and
crowd him out of the country.    The
working men of Canada, as a rule,
*   are able to hold their own against
nny other Bet of men if placed upon
an equal footing, but  ihey  cannot
compete  witli  the  Chinese.    Now,
what must be the consequence of
tliis unequal Btrifel    Tho Chinese
empire   has a population  of over
435,000,000.      Millions   of   these
people  are anxious to  leave their
own country for regions whore popu
lation is less dense and the means of
making money are more plentiful.
The United States government havo
practically   shut   tho door against
them, and they are coming by hundreds  and thousands to Can.tdu.    It
will easily be seen that 5,000,000
might come to this Dominion without  being missed from the celestial
empire.   There would be 430,000,-
000 left ut home, but Canada would
contain   more Chinamen than white
men.   All our industries would puss
into their  hands, nnd all the wealth
of the country   would be sent over
to  China to fatten the ultnoiuheynd
pagans   nud  keep  up  the heathen
Racrifices of the temples.     Does the
Week fancy sueh u picture 1   It is
by no means impossible.    With respect to Chinese vice, a minister of
the Church of England, for many
years a  missionary in China, made
the following statement from a missionary platform in Loudon: "I wish
this society  to  double what it has
done in the past, becauso I cannot
but think that a stream of population going away out of China into
almost every part of the habitable
globe, is carrying with it not only
the native energy and industry of
the Chinese people, but it is carrying
something else—it is carrying with
it the heathenism of tho Chinese
people.    I remember the day when
I thought heathenism waa idolatry
that R  heathen  was a poor mean
creature and an idolater, who bowed
down to stocks and stones; but now
I  know   that   behind  heathenism
there lie filth and pollution and putridity all around the ethical circle."
Does the  Week fancy thia picture 1
If it does not, let it further inform
itself before proceeding  to lecture
British Columbia  on the Chinese
question.     British  Coiiunbiuu doi
not seek legislation founded on
theory. They have had practical
experience enough to demonstrate
that the free admission of Chinese
is inconsistent with both the com
mercial and moral progress of the
country, and will ultimately end in
opllapse,

The fresh water carried in by these

If tht season hus been wet the fresh

any length of time the source of these
fresh water streams is stopped up,

CiUHaT, tf- W. T., Jan, 21.-Cal-
gary, the capital of Alberta, is .booming.
Land Commissioner McTavish, who has
been here for the past few days placing
the Canadian Pacific Company's town
site on the market, Is now en route for
Winnipeg, and on his arrival our citizens
will have an opportunity of participating in the bonanza, as simultaneous sales
will he made in Winnipeg and Calgary.
Until Mr. McTavish arrived, Section U,
cast of the elbow, was being boomed by
its claimants, and some fifty er sixty
thousand dollar-)' worth ef lots are said
to have been sold, on condition, however, of the sellers being able to guarantee a title, and that the Canadian Pacific Railway would give them a station.
This latter will not be grunted, as the
station is now being erected on Section
15, over a mile east of the Stewart property, and a great rush is made for lots
on fifteen, which is near the station.
Mr. McTavish has already disposed of
two hundred and sixty-three lots for
eighty-six thousand five hundred dollars,
and the cry is still for more. Tho new
city is tho scene of wonderful activity,
ns the parties east of the Elbow who
have bought near the station are moving
over, ami a large number of good, substantial buildings will be erected during
tho next two months.— Winnipeg Free

"Murder Will Out."
\early two years ago a furm-utmd
murdered a shepherd in one of the distant precincts of Germany. The murderer, in order to escape the wrath of
justice lied to America. Last Septcmhei
he was sought and given work hy Bap
tist Ucnster, a former living near Haw-
ley, Pa., but tho realization that he was
a murderer and tho fear of being captured and sent had; to the scene of hi.-
crimo, so preyed upon hia mind that hit,
actions were the comment of Denstor's
family. AH efforts to ascertain from
him the cause of his singular action*-
were unsuccessful, the only reply in
their inquiries being, "I have had n
great sorrow." Tho other day Mr. Dou-
ster sent the young man to a neighboring house on an errand,
The hired man knocked on the doer ol
the house, and it was opened by u lai.y.
The man stepped iurido, the lady throw
up her hands and staggered back into n
chair, exclaiming in German: "My God!
the man who killed tho shepherd. The
man turned pale, hut quickly gaining his
composure, instantly transacted his business and departd. The next l-ioinin-:
his body was found hanging to a beam in
his room, The neighbor's wife called
soon afterwards and told the story, She
was in Germany at the lime of the murder of the slit-pht-rd, and had seen tilt
young murderer very oltcn, but novel
knew hia name, Soon after she lefl
Germany for the States.   She never for-
f;ot the face of the murderer, and instant*
y recognized it ou the morning of then
meeting.

How tlie Soudan was Lost.
The special correspondent of the
Loudon Daily News at Suakim sends
an interesting letter regarding tho loss
of the Soudan, Ho Bays: "Not only
in tho eastern Soudan, but in Suakim
itself, the Egyptian administration has
hopelessly brokeiu down, nud tho presence of a high English official with full
powers cu alono avert further and
more serious disasters. The misman-
agemontof the Egyptian authorities--
particularly of Suleiman Pasha, tho
Governor-General of oastern Soudan-
may bu explained on tho hypothesis
of their sympathy with the rebels. The
eastern Soudan remained undisturbed
until lost July, when Sheik Digna, an
intimate friend of tho mahdi, whom lie
had just beon visiting in Kordofnn, arrived in the hilly country near Suakim,
and began to preach a 'jehad," or holy
waar. Sheik Digna is, among other
things, a groat slave-dealer. He regards Mho domestic institution' as part
of the law, custom, and religion of
Islam, and in becoming the mahdi's
lieutenant ho hss had ah oyo to pelf as
well as to pioty. Not until August 10th
did tho first intimations of Digitus enterprise reach Suakim. Tewtik Hoy
immediately marched from Suakim
with » wall guard, and en tho follow*
ing day occupied tho important post of
Sinkut.
"The next incident in the Eastern
Soudan movement was Digna's publi
announcement thut he imd tho Mahdi's
authority to demand the keys of tii
Egyptian treasuries, and even the
goods of the MuBSulmun traders. Sinkut, among other places received this
intimation, but was exceptionally fortunate in possessing a governor of
Tewtik Dcy's energy, shrewdness and
promptitude. A rash though loyal man
would lmvo refused point blank. Tcwfik parleyed, and while the diplomatic
make-believe waa going on ho quietly
gave orders to have the barracks barricaded and the walls loopboled, When
tliis was dono Towiik invited Digna to
come in and tako the koys if he could.
Digna accepted the challenge. There
was a hard tight. Tewfix hud with him
only tho sixty blacks ho had led from
Suakim. Tho blacks behaved admirably; but some of their Egyptian officer*,
displayed moro fright than courage.
Tewflk'a answer is worthy of record. '1
have,' ho replied, 'but my honor and
my daughter to savo. I shall take curt
of tho lirst and my master, the Khedivo, will, if I fall, take care uf tin.
second.' Tewtik is not uf Egyptian
race. Digna's Arabs assaulted the little
fortress and left sevonty dead, many of
whom lay within the iirst barricade,
which, however, wus forced only once.':

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Contlmioil.)
"In courso of time—very slowly as
it seemed to our poor Allan—tbey
arrived at Lisbon, and finding n Bristol merchiuitniau juat starling fur
England, ho again worked his way
across; and early one line summer
morning ho stood once more upon his
native shore.
"In his impoverished condition it
was necessary for liim to go tn London first, to assure himself of his
ph'tnii-ed pension, nnd furnish hiinaolf
with a few neeeHB-inen, boforo he could
make Iub appearance before Dorothy
Beazley; but after a delay that seemed
incredibly tedious, he waa nt lust enabled to set his face northwards; and
one evening, just as the sun was setting redly behind the old beeoh-trees,
lie entered  tho little town of D ,
and with faltering steps made for the
dingy house in the High street where
Josiah I»eu;*l**y lived.
"But, alas! tho man's falo was
oruelly adverse; hardly had his hnnd
touched the knocker, beforo lia rend
the words 'Crump, lute Beazley, was n
plump, rcsy Utile man, very pood-
natured in the main; he was son;? Fur
Allan—very, very sorry—ottered him
wine, and tried to cheer him; but hu
could do nothing fur him. Nn nne
had ever beard of the name of Lucy
Graham, and aa for Benzley, lie Imd
loft the place under vory disgraceful
circumstances some nine months hack,
and no one knew where h« had gone;
but some—and here Mr. Cramp winked
knowingly—some wero of opinion that
his native land waa rather ton hot fur
liim, thnt he aud his wife had started
for America, nnd for himself ho rather
fancied thia was tho truth.
"No; there was nothing to be done
—nothing, nothing; so Allan staggered,
haU-blindly, to the door and across
the stroet and through some green
fields, where some s'liepv kine were
browsing, till he camo to the copse
and tho pool by the pollard trees; and
there he lay down and prayed thut he
might die.
"Ah, the water ran stilly and clear
that evening; it was a lonely desolate
spot, and when the sun set and tho
shadows deepened, and the moon
rippled on the glassy surface, and not
a breath ruffled tho dark branches that
beat over it—it all looked so peaceful
and quiet; so fit for a sleep that would
have uo waking.
"Should he stretch himself upon
the cool white surface, and crossing
his hands upon his breast, sink slowly
to the bottom? 'Oh, Heaven have
mercy upon me,' groaned tho miserable man, 'for never Cain was branded
with a more cruel fate: and I—1 dare
not die-oh, Lucy, Lucy! tny girl, my
saint, I dure not—must not die.'
"But the prayer for mercy wus
heard, Some one riding through the
copse in tho moonlight with slackened
roin, paused nnd listened to the despairing cry, und, like the good Samaritan, tarried by the way-side to citn-
fort and to aid.
"Kneeling down beside tho stranger, he gently unlocked his hnnd and
bathed his brow with tbo cool limpid
water, while ull the time ho murmured
words of holy oonsolatinn, till the
horror and the darkness passed away,
and Allan, weeping like a child, could
recount his sorrowful tale.
"Tho moon was high and bright
now, when he hud finished. Hut Unkind friend who hnd cnnaolud hiin did
not suffer his benovolonco to rest here,
but when he had poured in the oil nod
wine of sympathy, nnd had prayed
and wept with him, he t»ok him to
his own house and cured for him.
"It was the Vioar of Brigham who
had befriended bim—a man celebrated
-for miles round fur hia eccentricity
and devoted piety. Allan, indeed,
had reasou to bless his name, during
the many days that he watched and
tended him, till the overwrought mind
nnd body were restored, nnd he could
look round again, nud think what was
now to be done.
"Then again his new friend camo to
his aid, and together they set on foot
nll possible Inquiries after the lust
Lucy and her child (fur Allan now
knew that he hnd one), bot though
they soon lenrnt the snd particulars of
her lung nnd terrible illness, nothing
further was known than that she hud
left the town one ovening on font,
currying her child, and looking wuu
nnd ill, nnd thut Dorothy had suid tu
her neighbors tlint sho hnd gone to
livo with an aunt, nud thut it was a
good riddance of them both.
"Now of this mint Allan know nothing, nnd (hough Mr. Priestly did
everything in his power to further the
search, it was all in vain, und Allan
said, weuriodly, ut lust, that it was
time that hu should go into the world
again nnd work for himsolf,
"Hut the vicar would not give him
up so readily. He had discovered that
he was a man of excellent education
nud intelligent purls, nnd hu secured
his services ns courier tu n wealthy
family in tbu neighborhood, just sinning for Rome; tbe chungu of employment and scene, he thought, would no
good for his shattered nerves, and in
his absence hu would still prosecute nll
possible inquiries.
"Allan was very loth to accept this
offer, but his pension waa small, and
bread hard to win, and hopo was dying out, ao ho let himself bu purtuadud
into undertaking thu ollice, uud hitu in
the autumn hu left England.
"Tho rapid traveling, the varied
scenes and excitement uf tho journey,
worked some good to Allan, und all
went on smoothly, both employers uud
employed being mutually wull pleased,
till, in an unlucky moment, nt an inn
at Lucerne, ns Allan was settling some
score with the host, a voice from a
traveling chariot, just starting from
the door, culled nut impatiently for
Luoy to bo quick; nnd Allan, straining his eyes in the sunlight, caught
Bight of a blue veil and some gulden
curls flouting under it, and in a moment he had seized the idea thut it was
Luoy herself.
"Nothing would do now but ho
must  follow that carriage, and des-
}>ite the remonstrances and anger of
lis master, thus suddenly bereft of a
most valuable courier, Allan, mnd with
impatience, hnd taken his leave, aud
was posting rapidly uniting tho Swiss
lakes, till his money was exhausted,
and ho Hrrivod one burning night nt
the little inn where Herwnld and
Marion Vivian had found liim, raging
with disappointment at discovering
that it was not his Luoy at all, but a
J-retry Knglish girl, traveling with her
at har, and with u roturii uf tho old
fever upon him.
"The rest," finished Herwald, "you
know; he has never loft me since.
Together we have dona what human
wisdom could devise in mir search
after Lucy, but all in vain, fur while
we explored England, she, poor lassie,
lias escaped over the border."
It wus suoh a pitiful tale In all its
bearings, thut it really was a relief
when Herwaid had finished it, and tho
firat moment thnt I could, I left tho
room tn breathe freely by mysolf.
Tho dour of the Oak parlor Btood
open as I passed. I could see Lucy
on the window-seat in her soft French
gray and new blue ribbons, while
Allan Bnt beside her, watching the
nimble little lingers lis thuy flow over
her work, while Hennie lay on a pillow tin tbo rug. playing with his clockwork mouse, the kitten purring sleepily near him; nud pluu-uintur than
music wns it to henr tho laugh with
which Allan hailed every now and thon
sumo quaint speech of his crippled
boyi
"Como and play, father—como aud
play," was Hennie's constant entreaty,
aud Allan was rising at last, more in
compliance with Lucy's aoft, pleading
eyes, when Herwald's peremptory
voice wus heard calling impatiently,
"Allan: Allan!"
"I am coming, sir," answered Allan, and then ns ho passed me lingering on the stair, he turned nud Biniled.
What n bright, happy smilo it wns!
it seemed to light up the whole fnce,
while ull the grave stern lines uf Buffering v.cru suddenly smoothed awny.
Already ho was heaomipg a chuni'cd
mnn under the influence uf his newfound ireasures.
Lucy ant and nuig to herself as I
went in and played with Hennie. Aud
presently Allan came bnck with n
pleased excited look on his face, and
took his scat by his wife again.
"Ah, Lucy, our good things are
never to end. Whr.t fresh hnppinuss
du yon think is in ntora fur us 1"
"Nay," answered Lucy, "how can I
tell? Have I not moro than I know
how to bear already!" and the hnnd
thut always now seemed fluttering towards him like a dove, rusted lovingly
on hia shoulder.
"Not mom than we know how to he
grateful for, I hope," he answered,
reverently, "But listen tii me, my
precious wife, for Ibis is certainly good
nows: what do you think my generous
master and friend has offered me ?"
"Not Holly-bush Farm, Allan?"
suid I, na 1 drew near the littlo group.
"Yea," cried Allan, with sparkling
eyes, and hu pressed Lucy closer to
him. "Yea, Holly-bush Farm; nud so
the poor soldier will bo able to offer
bia darling a better home even thnn
the one ho took her from.''
"liottet than Pear-tree Farm, Allan?
—ob, surely nut better than thnt."
"Ay, even than that—fur Holly-bush
i3 a great place, with a handsome whito
dwelling-house and with a dairy that
will hold a hundred pans; and then thu
garden, Lucy, with its nrbers and rosebushes and bee-hives, and ureal fountain fur Hennie tu splash in, nud with
a lung green orchard running hull
ruund it—why uro yuu crying, love ?'!
as she clasped his neck iu uu ecstasy
of joy.
"Because we are tou hnppy—too
happy, Allan. Think of yon uud mo
und Hennie living in a place like that
all our Uvea. Oh, how good, how kind
Mr. Delorme ia!"
"Indeed hu is; nnd nnt the least of
my pleasure is, (hut I shall slill bo near
bim, uud ahull be tho life-long tenant
of the man whom I most I A'o and respect in the world; it is n great boon
to accept from nuy ono, but smnehuw
I do nut mind being buholdeu tu him,
for he has been us much my benefactor
us Miss Nellie has been to you." .
After that 1 went away and heard
all that Herwuld had to say on thu
subject.
Ho and Dudley were full of it—and
it was arranged between them thut
nfter a week or two Allan wns to go
down with Herwald, and see that
eve ythiitg wus put in order fur tbo
little mistress. Duncan the bailiff and
Mrs. Arundel were tu get. everything
in readiness, uud Herwald uud Allan
were only to see fur themselves that
nil wus fitly dune.
They would both be back ill a couple
uf days ur so; and then Allan nud his
wife, and child wcru to bid good-bye to
Sunnyside and take possession of thuir
new home,
Sn when tliu snow was gone and the
days grew clear and lung, we gathered
in the hull one mild February morning
to say good-bye to Lucy and Hennie.
The sweet face looked snd enough
fur the moment, und tho bluo eyes
trembled wiih tears as Lucy clung to
mu with blessings and adieus j and the
tears became general when Allan came
down-stairs with his boy safely couohed
in his plaid—Hennie, his eyes red with
crying, aud thu kitten held firmly in
his small thin hands,
"Good-bye, Miss Nell," snid the little creature: "don't cry when I'm
gone, mul write uud tell me if poor
Titty's mother mens aftor her when
shu finds hur bed empty."
* * * # *
And in those days Sunnyside wns
divided by faction, There wns the
open feud of the Cameron and Mortimer, uud thu greater but no less deadly one uf thu Mortimer nud Delorme;
tho apple uf discord had been flung
into our Utile southern nost, and n
wholo world of discomfort wns thu result.
A lnrge infusion of northern prido
and tho leaven of tyrannical irony
warmed up tin- MnrthnoJ? bluod; till
Lnuio'a slow placidity took tire, and
Bruce, over a man of mettle, was ready
to do battle tu thu death; and in thuse
day.i Suiiuyiide was hardly the abode
of pence thut it might hnve beun.
And this wus how it came to pass.
When the excitement at Lucy's uud
Allan's happy re union hud a littlo sun-
sided, and the novelty of Herwald's
arrival wum off, uud the usual every
day life resumed, then it was found
thnt Borne alien influence wns ut work,
und provocative nggrossiun, folluwim
by open hostility, become tbu order of
the day; and of this alien influence
Katie Cameron wns prime leader and
chief.
During Christmas-day the trucu had
been fairly observed between her uud
Bruce; but thn very next morning
Bruce hnd sinned with un error of
judgment, had been reproved, und
turned restive iu consequence, nud
Katio had then and thero flared up a
crimson dug uf assault, uud becoming
all of a sudden morally deaf and dumb,
drove her aggrieved adversary straight
into the Thornton fastnesses.
It wus thu very mutter und maimer
•if his rovenge that was su griuvuus to
our high-spirit oil Katie; fur with tho
unerring instincts of an honest heart,
she had taken a strung personal dislike
tn tiio twu giddy heads of Belle and
Ada; the mure sight uf the blue bonnets and the long fair curls wus snlli-
cient to drivo her into one of hor tantrums, and woe then to the Bruce if he
crossed her path,
Dudley said it wna as good as a play
tu wateh them both, but with this I
could hardly agree. I could not bear
sue the bright sonsie faco su often
downcast; and provoking ua wero hor
wilful curves and stilt more wilful
tongue, I could not help taking her
part, fur I knew that feminine week-
ness and unconscious suffering luy nt
thu taut of nll the waywardness; and
in my opinion Bruco was very hard on
her.
Of course it was her own fault. If
she hud trusted him well from the first,
he would have been the old frank
Bruce of his boyhood, but she had
ue.-er dune so; she had mucked at his
dandyism, indolence, and atisumption
of dignity, and goaded him by her
pungent satire; her whole manner was
so indifferent to him compared with
the warm cordiiilitn Bhe extended to
Dudley noo Herodd, that it wns hardly a wonder that he did turn restive
at last, nnd go where sweeter smiles
and more flattering atieutioiiB wero
lavisnetl upon him; and then it waa—
when Katie suffered.
Then, when Bhe saw him going off,
nnd knew that she had roally wounded
him, nnd yet wiib too proud to call him
back, though a word or smile had been
sufficient, when sho watched liim saunter down the lane, with Ada's dainty
little flower-knot ill bis coat and a
careless whistle on Ins lips, then it wns
that her faco took tliose sorrowful
curves, and the brightness of her eye
was dimmed, but only for a moment,
and then pride came to her rescue, and
the smothered sigh was lust in a jest
or bandied repartee with Herwald,
Oil such occasions her resentment
was strong, nnd no reconciling word ur
smile greeted tho culprit uu his return;
but ns these littlo fuuds wero not suffered to mar lhe bannuiiy of tho ovening circle, and wero only betrayed by
the unoany glint in the uye and the
tell-tale suffusion of blood to clic-k und
brow, by silence nnd a ctrict avoidance
of the other, we thought it bost not to
interfere, but to lot our Scotch bantam
have her way,
But thoro wero times when Bruco
went too fur, or Kiltie's proud spirit
was too deeply stung; and when this
was the caso, we always know what
would lumpen—that, ba tho day what
it might, hail, snow, rain, or piorceing
shut, b]io would presently appeur wrapped in folds of her' scarlet plaid, or a
lung gray water-proof clunk, Louie's
charity basket Blung on her arm, and
bound fur some wretched out-lying
district sumo three or four miles off,
to reach which she must wade unklo-
deep iu snowy slush or miry clay,
wliere stiles of fabulous height must be
encountered, und nut (infrequently a
five-barred gate beside.
But theso obstacles were nothing to
Katie in tliese wilful moods uf hurB;
nnd it wns soon found that nll argument and opposition wore worse than
useless. Iu vuin would Horwald jest
from his cozy hook in the chimney
corner, and protest that she wiib no
Romanist nr High-Church Ritualist to
believo that such meritorious works
should secure her saving reward; ot
Dudley remonstrate with her gravely
as with a sister, or Nellie herself put a
during foot against the door — she
would listen tu none of us, and it wns
soon felt by ull that it was better to
leave her aluno to her own wayward
will.
Sometimes as tho afternoon closed iu
dim aud gray, Bruce would come in
looking subdued uud penitent, und
cast a swift sly glance at Katie's empty
chnir, but ho never usked nfter her,
unless I were alone, nnd thon only in
the way of protest and with an angry
denunciation against us fur suffering
her tu go such fool's gait. But if the
weather were more inclement than
usual, the twilight stealing on dark
and chill, or tbu snow-flukes fulling
fast upon the frozen ground, and still
she did not return, he would pace up
and down the room with n glower on
his face nud his step full of unensiue&s,
go tu thu hull door und look out and
watch down the lune, and presently
start off to stride patiently over
plowed fields und through clayey lanes,
till hu camo upon hor. fuotsoru and
weary, plodding through the snow.
And then, just as we sat down to
tbo lighted tea-table—Dudley often
with uu annoyed speech ut what he
termed theso tiresome escapades, and
Herwald with mock gravity relating
how some clown in fustian would
stumble upon them in tho early morning, lust in the snow-drift, lying deud
as the children in the wood, with the
basket between them — tbey would
suddenly appear powdered with biiow-
flnkes aud bespattered with mud,
Katie with a bloom that shamed our
lire-warmed faces, aud Bruce looking
radiantly bright.
And all the evening Katie's eyes
would look tender and true, and hor
sweet bird voice trill joyously out,
while Bruce's face would wear its
bashful happy glow, nnd all would bo
harmony and peaco.
On theso occasions the dainty little
flower-knot that Bruce had worn with
nuch open pride all day invariably
found its way under the grate, where
it perished iguomiuously, singed to
the denth; and it was curious to see
how Katio instantly detected ita absence, aud how the bent fnce spr.rkled
blithely over her work.
So much for the Cameron feud,
which was harmless on the wholo, if
not amusing, nnd carried its Finis
legibly written on tho stnndnrd of each
li'istilo force, but the Delurme gave
mo grantor uneasiness.
"Herwnld," 1 aaid, ono afternoon,
as wo were alone together, "Herwald,
I want, io speak to you,"
He was sitting opposite me, with his
arm-- folded over an open bonk, whose
edges he wus crumpling sorely, und his
face, in ita thoughtful abstraction,
looked threo parts and nud wholly
grave.
Louie had juat left us; she had been
taking her lirst lesson on Tennyson,
mid find received her dismissal from
her young tutor some tun minutes
before, a dismissal more graciously
received than awarded,
The lesson had commenced auspiciously; the duy wns dull, aud no
visitors likely to cull, aud Louie hnd
therefore obeyed her summons to the
drawing-room with right gu< d-humur
aud alacrity, hnd sottled herself with
less regard than usual to the ample
flowing uf her skirts, and had consented to turn a serene eye on the open
pngo before her.
Iu fivo minutes Herwald had forgotten himself and her uud the world beside, us he wandered through the
masses of melodious rhythm, and the
faithful reasonings of love; and his
whole voice trembled on his lips, when
he wns suddenly and unplensingly recalled tu the outer life, for Louie
yawned.
Yos, Louio yawned, and Herwnld
frowned, nud Nellie, that most artful
of peace-makers, snid blandly—
"How beautiful, Herwald, I never
heard yuu read so well before; pray go
on,!'
Herwnld muttered something Impatiently, but went on notwithstanding,
but his voico lust its rich cadence and
became measured uud monotonous; and
Louie yawned again.
I shook my head at hor and looked
entreatiugly; but her eyes were becoming sleepily round and opaquely
blue—a third time, and Herwuld closed
the book.
"You are diBitynsod, Miss Louisa; a
thousand pardons for tha prolonged
weariness that I hnve caused you;
please consider the first and last lesson
at un end."
