NUMBER 51
repeated disallowance of tlio Rivers
and Streams Bill, and tho Legislature is admonished -to take a firm
stand for tho territorial rights and
political autonomy of tlio Province.
Very little fresh legislation is indi-
cuted by tho Speech, It was a
notable circumstance tliat, of the six
new members, fivo vrdte introduced
by ministerialists and. took their
seats on the right.
Whose Fault Is It?
That the long-continued' looking
up of the lands contained In tho
railway bolt has inflicted untold
, injury upon this part of tjhe country.
is admitted on all hands, but there
*3 some little difference of opinion
as to where tlio blame l'ests. The
Columbian : has always contended
that the fault rents with our own
Government, and we have reason to
know that this view is largely ahurod
by an intelligent public. Them are,
however, those who have been led
into tho "error of supposing that it
is not tho Provincial, but tho Dominion Government that is to blame;
but this viow is confined to a very
limitod circle of those who nre verdant enough to believe in tho local
patent combination which has done
iis little bcr.t to divert public cpn-
atU'R from itself- by making a scapR-
goat of tho Ecdoral authorities. One
would have imagined tliat the uttor-
ancos of Sir Charles Tupper, when
here, bearing upon that subject ought
to havo undeceived every mind; hut
there are those to whom the old saw
applies:
"A man convinced against Ida will
Is of the same opinion still."
Tho following extract which we aro
permitted to muko from   a letter
written   this month by Sir -John
Macdonald to a gentleman iu this
eii.y, who had written to tho Dominion Premier respecting these lands,
shows very clearly whoso fault it is
that tho embargo is still  permitted
to remain :—"I hope that during the
present winter aouio satisfactory arrangement may be come to between
the Government of Canada aud that
of Btitish Columbia respecting the
lauds in tho Railway Belt.    Until
i that agreement is arrived nt, how-
[ ovpr, it is not iu my power to give
■you any information on tho subject
lof your note."   From the foregoing,
•taken iu connection with what was
tknoHru  before, it must  be obvious
fthat tho   Federal   authorities feel
■themselves to be perfectly powerless
Ito deal with these lands.    It must
! nlso be clear that the samo spirit
I wliich brought on a dead-lock bo-
[ tween  tho Walkem-BoaVon Government and tho Govociiment at Ottawa
not only in respect of these lands
, but in respoct of the island Railway
land other matters, still  ptovails at
kJames Buy.   Nor need it ho any
[secret that tho hopo expressed by
L the Canadian Premier of "a satisfuc*
I tory arrnngoment" boing arrived at
[this winter, is bused upon tho belief
[ that lie will have another set of men
to deal with—a Government com-
j poned 6f men with whom it will be
I possiblo to do business.   It is well
fknown Sir John felt himself grossly
[insulted in connection with this samo
[laud question and long sinco relin-
[qiiished all idea of doing anything
[with  men who did not appear to be
lnblo to approach that or any other
I subject in a business-like, not to say
[statesman-like, spirit.

This body met on tho 13th and
(tho opening ceremonies would appear
I to lmvo evoked moro than average
piitcient.  "The gallorics were crowd-
fed to their utmost capacity," while
"a brilliant assemblage gathered on
Itho floor of tho House." Tho "Speech
[from the Throne" has about it a ring
lof' robust  confidence and  assured
[prosperity.   It points to tho solid
progress in agriculture and assorts
fthat "In tho production of cereals
{especially, it is now ascertained that
Dnturio holds a foremost place when
•compared with thh most favored rations of this continent." Particular
■trass is laid upon the action of the
federal authorities in resisting the

Observations on Russian railways
during a period of six months showed
that seventy-seven por cent,, of tho
fractures oi tires occurred when■ the
tempera turo wns below zero, and only
nineteen per cont. at a higher temporal uro.
Prof. George L. Goodalo stated iu a
rocont lecture that a sunflower ilireo
feot and a half high presents au evaporating surface of thii\y-inne sipuiro
feet, and that tho roots of such a sunflower havo an aggregate length of
1443 feet. According to the same
well-known botanist, grasses and like
plants exhale about their own weight
of water on a hot summer day,
Mons. Perroaux has oonutruatocl an
apparatus for niioi'pRco.piC measurements which is capablo of measuring
one 1,500 part of a miUunafro, The
instrument is so delicate that it can
oulv bo used at cer'ahi liours of the
niglit when tho jar of passing vehicles
has censed. Those not familiar with
tho metric system will got a he Iter idea
of ihe minute measuring powers of
this apparatus when it is considered
that a millhuotre is only about one
twonly-liflh of our inch.
Koch's discovery of tho true nature
of tuberotilai* coiisumpl-ion hia naturally raised tho hope that some means
may bu found to destroy in the system
tho organisms producing the disease.
Mons. Do Kor.ib has recently described
to tho Paris Academy of Sciences nn
interesting experiment bonring on tho
subject. Tubercular matter from a
guinea-pip* was placed in fen tubes under favorable circumstances for devoir
opmonr. Into three of the tubes hel-
eu.ine was introduced- At tho ond of
a week tho matter acted upon by tho
holoniue had lost its infective power,
whilo that in tho other tuhes still
readily produced tuberculosis.
A vory faulty lightning-conductor
may sometimes protect a building.
Mons. Hirn tolls of suoh a case whicli
lately occurred at Colinar. A thin iron
rod about twenty-si:; feot long had a
conical h/ass point screwed on the top,
and was connected below, by means of
a scries of pieces of thin wiro hnving
terminal eyes, with n block of iron
about twenty inches long iu the
ground. During a violent thunderstorm lightning melted tlio brass point,
hut tho current seoms to hnvo nowhere
left- tho conductor. Mons. Hirn insists that tho more fact of a lightning
discharge on the point of a conductor
is proof of vory imporfoct construction;
ns. during more than forty years of,
observation, ho has nevor soon lightning strike one of tho forty or fifty
lightning rods of tho factories of
Lpgelbndh, although ho hiw found thnt
curnm.'s are almost constantly passing
through ihe rods in iho presence of
thunder-si orins.
Aluminum, a bluish-white metal
possessing vnliiaMo properties, constitutes i'i large portion of ,ho oarih'a
crust, occurring in li)5 different species
of minerals: Despite its abundance,
however, it is rendered very expensive
by lhe difficulty bf separating it from
it3 compoulitis—a process involving tho
use of sodium or potassium, both costly substances. Several attempts, of
doubtful snecoss, havo been made to
obtain aluminum by means of tho ordinary reducing agents, hydrogen and
carbon. A patent has recently been
taken out in England for a new process of this kind, in wliich alumina
(the oxide of the metal) and carbon
are submitted lo a temperaturo of ignition m a closo vessel, and subjected
to tho action of carbonic acid; carbonic
oxide being formed, and tho alumina
reduced iu whole or in part to tho metallic state. As soon as it can bo
cheaply procured, aluminum must
tako au important placo initio arts,
and tho man who makes it inexpensive
will undoubtedly Iind a fortune within
his grasp.
The namo "commensals," moaning
enters at the saute table, has been applied by naturalists to creatures of different kind whioh live together but.do
not prey ou each other, A newly
rooorded ease of commonsalism ia that
of n curious lizard callod tuatara*—
found iu tho Chicken Islands, near
Now Zealand—and certain species of
petrol. In a burrow usually dug bythe tuatara, both lizard and bird build
their separata nests, and livo in apparent harmony, Thoy mutually profit
by this intimacy, as fho lizard valiantly dofends tho on trance to the burrow
while doponditig upon its companion
for a largo part of its food. It is well
known that tho underground homo of
the North American prairio-dog is
oft on shared by iho rattlesnake and
the burrowing owl; and a rabbit-like
viseuclia has a m'ossmaio in a littlo harrowing owl, in South America. Oom-
mensttlism is, however, very raro
among the higher animals. A fow
examples lmvo been recorded anion*?
insects; but tho phenomenon is much
more frequently observed among ma-
rino animals, many of the weaker
creatures of tho soa owing tlieir existence to tho food or protection bestowed by thoir powerful allies.

A Happy Nerc Vcnr teYoa!
As one stands on tlio threshold of
the new year,—
As eighty-two's lust days fleet by
As eighty-throe draws nigh,
As gray December slinks away*,
it is neither unnatural nor mibocom-
. ing to take a retrospective view of
tlie past und peer into the voilcd expanse of the future. Eighteen hundred nnd eighty-two has been eventful, but not unkind. In thoUiistory
of our own nation it must hold an
important plnco. While at pence
with the "Great Powers," our arms
and especially our diplomacy have
won fresh glory in the land of the
Nile and it may truly be said that
the "old flag" was never more ia.
speefced than now. At home it is
true that one part of the Kingdom
has been marred by unrest and
bloody crime; biit that is tho natural outcome of centuries of neglect
•and mis-government; nnd thero is
consolation in the reflection that
substantial progress has been made
towards removing the root of the
disorder. Looking to our Dominion,
tire year whoso sands are now running out has been Loth important
and eventful. It has marked immense strides, unfolded to view wondrous possibilities. Tho great "Lone
Land"—lone no longer—has been
thrown open to an astonished world,
and towns nnd even cities have been
created within tho year. Work on
the great national highway has been
pushed forward with a vigor and
rapidity never before witnessed, and
already a net-work of railways 1ms
been projected for a countiy until
recently a terra incognita. Coming
still nearer our own western Iiqme,
the old year has been both kind and
eventful to Columbia. A bountiful
harvest, both from land and sea, has
rewarded the agriculturist and the
fisherman. AU the great industries
have flourished, and our Province
has enjoyed a great degree of immunity from those terrible disasters
by sea and land by which other
•countries have beon visited. In saying this we do not overlook the
deeply-to-be-regretted devastation occasioned by floods in one section of
this District, and which call loudly
for preventive measures. But perhaps 1882 will be chiefly rnmemlier-
-ed on account of the 4visit of the
Marquis of Lome and tho Princess
Louise, It is the prolonged visit of
the most lovable daughter of our
beloved Queen that must make the
year a green spot, an important
epoch, in tho history of tho Pacific
Province. With sueh a retrospect,
it is not unnatural that wo should
look with confident hopo to the coming year. The outlook is certainly
one of more than ordinary promise
for our Province—our Dominion .
and it is, therefore, with more than
ordinary confidence and meaning
that we now wish our readers,—A
Happy New Yeah.
The Dock and Island Railway.
It will doubtless still bo within
the recollection of many of our readers how the Walkom-Beaven administration used to make tho dock and
the Island railway do duty as political stalking-horses. They sought to
make the impression that they alone
wero the trno friends, they alone
were competent to grapple with these
works,—that both would most certainly come to grief in tho hands of
their opponents, Well, it lias been
seen how they havo managed tliese
works,—what a pitiful mess they
have made of both, Ono would have
imagined that, for very shame, they
would now'keep silence on that
score. But so far from that, these
political hacks are trotted out to do
duty once more. Again the alarm
has been sounded, and the public are
once more asked to believe that the
opponents of the present thing called a Government are the natural
and inevitable enomies of tliese
works,—that "the inveterate intention of the Opposition" is to stop tho
dock, or else to hand it over to the
Chinese so that all tlie expenditure
will go to China 1 The Island railway, they are told, would die-with
the present administration, the Opposition possessing neither tho wiil
nor ability to handle it, Surely
theso men must imagine (hat they
have to deal with people possessed
mmmtsic
of short memories or long ears. Tlio
history ot their attempts at dock
building must stilt "be green in most
people's memories, nnd ought, one
would think, to be enough to condemn any Government. And as for
their efforts in connection with the
Island railway, everybody knows
thnt they have been only loo sue"
cessful in killing it. To pass over
the oxtremo unwisdom or their previous course, did not Mr. Beaven,
during the very last session, deliberately refuso to entertain tho hona
fide offer ot tho Dunsmuir Syndicate)
who were both able and willing to
build it, nud prefer the offer of those
who were neither able nor willing1)
And did not Mr, Beaven, during the
samo session, sunder the last link
connecting that work with tho Dominion Government, with the utmost discourtesy repealing tho act
which placed in their hands tho railway lands in trust] At tho very
moment the Dominion Government
woro engaged in successful negotiations with tho Dunsmuir Syndicate
to tako over those lands and build
tho road Mr. Beaven rudely snatched tlio lands away for n "bogus"
syndicate! If Beaven and his fellow
conspirators aro the friends of the
dock and the Island railway, well
may both exclaim, "Save mo from
my friends I"
So far from the policy of the Opposition being to sacrifice the dock
and hinder the Island railway, it
will be their earnest care, on assuming the responsibilities of administering the affairs of tho country, to
rescue both from the almost hopeless
mess into which they have been
brought, and place them upon a solid
and satisfactory basis, in order that
they may be carried to speedy nnd
successful completion without inflicting injustice on any section of
the Province or involving tho whole
in bankruptcy, as would bo tho inevitable result of tho blundering
policy(!) of the men now in power.
Instead of being the enemies of
either, they tire the true friends of
both, and will soon convince the
country thnt they possess tho will
and nbility to carry both to a satisfactory conclusion. It is tho present Ministers nnd those with whom
they have ncted in the past, who
havo proved themselves to be tho
real enemies of these important public works.
We are not in a position to speak
for nn unformed administration, but
we know the Opposition to bo composed of very different material from
what Mr, Bdaven's organs would
have the country believe, As a
party, they will be found rising
above all such petty, sectional feelings as have beon attributed to
thein, and they will recognize the
chums of the two great works more
particularly referred to upon the
earnest attention of the Government,
Speaking for ourselves, wo have no
hesitation in saying that if they were
capablo of doing otherwise they
would be unfit to be entrusted with
the administration of the affairs of
the country. Vancouver Island is
an integral nnd very important part
of the Province. While the Mainland is having its railway, the Island is justly entitled to tho dock,
as one of the original terms of Union
with Canada, and to the railway, as
a subsequently created expectation.
And not only so, but theso works
being beneficial to an important
part, will reilexly benefit the wholo
Province, It is in tho hands of
those now constituting the Opposition that theso and other import ant
public works will be rescued from
the debris and entanglements of incompetent bunglers and placed on a
solid and satisfactory foundation.
It will remain for them to bridge
over the gulf and make the Provinco
ono in heart, as it is one in name.
Tlio accusation that tho Opposition aro "admirers of Chinese," in
favor of Chinese labor, and that they
would abandon tho public works to
that class of labor, is just of a piece
with the other charges brought
against them. While the leading
members of tho Opposition have
beeu consistent and uncompromising
opponents of Chinese labour during
nil tliese years, tho party now iu
power aud those with whom they
acted have been coquetting and playing fast and loose with tho question
—opposing in words, but hslping in
deeds. It was only last year that
Sir John Macdonald blurted out the
damaging fact that the local Government hnd never as much as informed him that British Columbia had
such a grievance on hand] No; it is
not in the tjclapidated ranks of tho
Beavenites that tho country will
look for the true friends of free
white labor; for, in this ns in the
other matters alluded to, they have
proved themselves to be insincere
and incompetent, every ready to
make great swelling professions for
the sake of deceiving the people and
retaining office.

In thia part the season has been observed with more than wonted zest.
There is, however, comfort iu tho reflection that Xmns will not fnll on
Monday for some time to come—not,
we trust, until some people learn better: It is b;ul enough lo engage in
(he work of decorating Churches on
Sunday because Monday is Xmns, but
we aro told of onu* instance in which
thu parson and Plumbers of his Hock
actually went out to the Hush on Sunday nud cut nnd carried tu tho Church

Churchman, that it is all right, since

onanists may succeed to their own satisfaction iu reconciling such apparent
self-contradiction; but ordinary inor-

Tlie ■Braving Dock.
Tho Government havo 1C0 men and
hoys employed at tho dock, making a

not bo bo; but every well-informed
person must know that if tho Federal
contribution is squandered now, the
five hundred thousand dollars necessary to complete tho work must oomo
out of tho Provincial* treasury— that is
lo sny, if Heaven is allowed to hnvo his
way; so that it is poor consolation to
bo informed thnt it is Federal money
that is being squandered now, Stich

Enterprising Citizens,
There aro enterprising, public-spirited citizens; nnd,'then ngnin, there aro
others frho nro not. Wo shall (-imply
recite a fact touching tho member for
thia city, leaving the reader to any to
which clasa of citizens he belongs: Tho
law provides thatwbeuever the owners
of one-half the assessed value of lots
abutting on any street, petition for a
sidewalk, the Council shall have powur
to construct such sidewalk und assess
the cost tllet'eof upon nil tho said lots.
It also provides for the ei-eotioii of
hand-rail or other protection wherever
necessary at the expense of the owner
of tho laud abutting thereon. Quite
recently, in tlio regular course of duty
tho City Council directed the Clerk to
notify Mr. W. J, Armstrong respecting a Sidewalk opposite his property
on Dallas street and railing opposite
his old mill property, on Columbia
street, whero there ib Veal danger to
pedestrians. The' letter written by
Mr. Armstrong in reply to the30 notifications wna read nt si late mooting
of the Council, nnd tliis is an extract
from it:—"I object to tho Council

Upon entering Ida dining-room, last

Christmas box from his'/faon, a hid just
anientd upon his (ecus; Tho box contained a candy cigar, and 6 card upon
which tbe little fello.v had written the
following lines:
"Though this is but ft mock cigar,
'Tis more sweet and better far
Than one that's made of that foul weed
Of winch you nor others have no need —
I hope this lecture to you is quito clear,
For you know it stands to reason;
So, a Merry Chriatnms and Hnppy New

Are my compliments for the season."

the touching appeal of his little son
will not "end iu smoke."
Doctoring tlie llelinqncnl Tax-
List.
Wo cannot refrain from expressing
surprise at tho vory peculiar method
ndopted by the City Fathers on Wedneaday night in .revising or purging
the delinquent tax list. It was done
in this hap-hoBHU'd sort of wny:-*
Af in arrears for 1873-70-80* &)7.-
A Councillor: "A isn't thu sort of
person to leave his taxes unpaid all
theso yearn. I am of opinion ho p dd
them, and I, therefore, move that his
mime hu struck oil' the delinquent
list."
All thffoth'er Councillors, iii chorus:
"Strike him oil'!1' and he was struck
off accordingly.
B, in arreara for 1877-78-79-80,-81,
aniount, S73.
A Councillor: "B is exactly tlm sort
of fellow to loavo his taxes unpaid.
Ue never4id psty anything until compelled. I move that his name bo left
on the delinquent list.-1'
All thu Councillors, jn chorus.:
"Leave hiin oil!" aud B was left on accordingly.
Aud so they went on through the
list, striking Off one and leaving ou.
another by tbo uncertain rule of
caprice. Can-tliat he right/ It is certainly far from business-like.

Moved hy Mr. S. Cawley, seconded
by Mr. A. S. Veddnr:
Whereat all the agricultural land in
fho Bower Frasor Valley fo within the
Railway belt, which hay been conveyed
by Provincial Statute to the nae of the
Bomiiiion Gorerhmeht a'! railway
land iu obedience tu the iWtVtfj of
Union;
Awl whereas a largo proportion of
the lauds within our settlement fo vacant and belongs to the Dominion Government, and all tlie lands are subject moro or k-ss to atiuunl overflow
•from lliu Fraser river;
Aud ivliereas we iirinlv believe that
the wli'iln of these binds can be practically and successfully reclaimed by a
genera! system of dyking and . the expense per acre would bo eoippurativ'eiy
email;
Therefore be it Eesdlicd, That this
meeting would respectfully urge upon
the Dominion Government to send
during tho coming summer one of the
best nnd most practical of the Engineer's nt present employed in connection with the Canadian Pacific Railway
construction iti the Province, with nil
ellicient stail', to survey and locate a
lino for thu construction .of a dyke,
and to prepare detailed plans showing
how the work should bo dune and giving an estimate of tho expouse and the
amount of acreage each seel ion would

inforiiKilionj and would further respectfully urge that the 'Dominion
Government procure during (ho next
session of thu Dominion Parliament
tlio necessary legislation to enablo the
Government to cooperate with the settlers in any satisfactory schema that
may be inaugurated having for its object the reclamation of these lands..
Unanimously carried.
Moved by Mr. J. L. Chadsey, seconded by Mr. S. Bnrtlctl:
Whereas all the agricultural land in
tho Eraser River Valley is within thu
Railway belt;
And when-as the Dominion Govern
ment has not as yet placed the snid
land in tbo market, ao that intending
settlers mav know tbo terms and conditions on which they may obtain r
title;
, And whereas intending settlers nre
indisposed to squat on thuse hinds subject to tho contingencies which' this
state of things involves;
And whereas, in aonsequonijo, nearly
all tho lauds aforesaid He unoccupied
io tho serious detriment of the agricultural interest of tho Province stud
.more especially at tho present time
when the works of railway construction now in rapid progress afford a
market in our midst foaall the produce
that tho agriculturist could produce;
Therefore, ha it Jlvfbhrd, Thnt this

Inku such stops ns are necessary to

Wlnrva* the ProviiTcinl legislature

Judicial District Act, 187.V' wherein
are defined and established certain Judicial Districts in whieh a Judge of tho

And.V&ereas tlie Judges of the said
Court have resided and discharged
their duties in each of the said Judicial Districts except Now Westminster,
although one of the said Judges hns
been directed by Your Excellency's
Ordcr-iu-Coimcil of the 12th July,
1881, but regret that said Order has
not been obeyed to the present time
with respect to New Westminster;
And whereas tbo District of New
Westminster has been for years without a resident Judge, either of County,
or Supremo Court jurisdiction, nnd as
tho District is second to none in the
Province ill population, lireti, nnd
varied industries, in our opinion, one
of the main features of British jurisprudence is to make iho Courts of Law
as accessible as possible tn the people;
And whereas thu people iu this District aro often put to a great deal of
inconvenience, hiss of time, nnd expense in having to go to Victoria to
attend to legal muttera that could bo
done at home if a Judge wero to reside
permanently in the District;
Therefore be it Besotted, Thnt this
meeting would respectfully urge upon
tlie Dominion   Gbvei'timont   to tako
immediate steps lo cause a Judge of
the Supremo Court to reside permanently at the City of New Westminster.
I'naiiimously carried.

GbSTLEMEJCi—In presenting our second report, wo heartily congratulate you
upon the efficiency mul buoco&s which
have characterised the school under your
care durlug the two yoara of its existence,
The tact that nll those who wtote for
teachers' certlficatea at tho last nroi inciftl
e:;in'dilation having rccHved their high
scliool training in this institution woro
aessful nnd hllvo since been employed
as teacher-) nt good salaries :**. itself n substantial evidence, of tlio high ipinlity of
the work done.
The teachers omployedin tho various
departinents are nll well qualified nnd
thoroughly devoted to their work. Tbo
manner iu whieh instruct ion is given and
the discipline maintained arc deserving
of tbe highest commendation.
The Btibjoota taught embrace a wide
range and seine, of tho classes tire well
advanced in the higher branches. Thb
addition of Botany and Chemistry to the
natural sciences taught renders tlint department inure complete nnd tho present
in-rungciilent by which instruction in
music fo given by the principal tent-hoi's
in tlio city fo satisfactory.
Tho number of pupils in attendance nt
present is nineteen. Gonorally, tlieir
attendance hns been regular and punctual, ninl some of them have ninde miu ked
progress during tho past year.
Thromjh you wc would impress upon
tho pntrGiis'of the school aiid thd friends
of higher education generally the absolute necusi'.ity of provutfrig suitable buildings for the propel' ftoetimmodatioii of the
different departments of the institution.
Thereby tho mtfflb'ftr of pupils would be
considerably increr.sud and the expenditure compnvnlivMy lessened.

We beg to call the attention of-tho
trade aiul tho public to tho well-known
quality and elegance of finish of oar
Geld Cases, guaranteed by us to he of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen ko.rat Gftld. tis,-may he
stamped, nnd also to mir mode of selling
the same, charging only for th-*. Actual
Weioht of the gold used, and not lor
the bus-i metal comprisoa in springs, key-
pipes, filling of crown,'cte. To illustrate
which a tag ncconipruiie-s each one of our
Gold Cases, which plainly indicates not
only the gross weight ot tho case, but
also the Net weight of the gold.
In explanation of tho above wc desire
to sny that tbe old plan of charging for
the gross weight of tho ense, as if it were ■
nil gold, worked well enough as long ns
the manufacturers wore content with the
amount of brass and steel nctually ro
quired in its construction; hut'when thd
business wa$ degraded into a contest as
to who should get the most base motal
into tlio least quantity of gold nnd call it
'a Gold case, then the time came when,
in the interest of dealers in American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
plnii of selling- showmt? the buyer exactly how* inuoh Gold each caso contained'..
To avoid imposition, purchasers of Walt-bain Watches will observe that every
genuine watch,.whether gold or silver,
bears our trade mark on both case nnd
movement. Cold casos.a'rt) stamped "A.
W. Co.;"aud guarantee certificates ae
company them, Silver cases arc stamped
"A. M. Watch Co., Waltham, Mass.,
sterling diver," and arc accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed R. E. Bobbins, treasurer. The namo -■Wolthan'i"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered neees-.
sary Ijy reason of tho fact that our cnaes
are frequently separated from our movements, ana put Upon worthless movements of other makers nnd vice versa,
thus nflecting injuriously the performance of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by us. It is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to bo a public scandal
that there fo great fraud in tho metal
quality of both gold and silver cases as
now generally sold. We havo demonstrated by frequent assays that jnauy
gold and silver cases offered in the market arc debased froin 10 to 20 per cent. ■
from the quality they nssumo to be.
This is a fraud upon the purchasor, and
accounts for the low price at wliich such
cased watches have!ecu sola.—African Watch Co.mpaxy, Walthum, Mass.

CHAPTER .XIV.
EASTWARD HO I
Ronald was on board, and as an os*
necial favor to Major Hammond and
his friend Captain Leslie he was permitted to go on shore for a couple of
hours. He was taken completely by
surprise, for he had no idea that the
Leslies wore at Malta; but the invitation gave htm keen pleasure, proving,
as it did, that Muriel's friendly feelings had not been diminished by her
marriage, nor, which ho had thought
moro probable, by that rash letter
which Mra. Simpson had so long concealed. To tho surprise of his com*
rades, he stepped into one of the littlo
green boats that crowded round tho
ship, with Captain Leslie nnd his companion, carefully taking, his place on
the farthest bench, and not speaking
unless addressed.
On landing Leslie directed him to
tha hotel, and turned wiih Ins friend
into a cafe. He was pleased with Ronald's good taste and his ready accent-
•ante of his position, but ho judged
,lhat both he and Muriel,woitld bo more
at their ease if thoy were to moot unobserved by a stranger.
Ronald could not soe her unmoved,
.yet the feeling that quickened his
pulse aa he entered tho room wns very
unlike tho engrossing and overmastering passion that had shaken him whon
they parted somo eighteen months
ago. He was able now to look her iu
tho face, and speak to her with as
much calmness and self-possession as
■he herself showed.
*'I am so glad to soo you, Ronald!"
"How very good of you to let me
oome, Mrs. Leslie!"
Nothing could be moro natural and
ea-iy than the salutation on both sides,
and Muriel, greatly rolieved to see
that tlio moody, anxious expression
she remembered hnd given place lo n
look of quiet purposo, fell at once, and
' with evident pleasure, into hor usual
chat about home aud friends.
The timo passod quickly, and as
Ronald looked reund the cool, spacious
toohi ha gave a sigh of relief. "How
•delightful this is after tho trooper!
■Our accommodation there is somewhat
of the scantiest."
"Yes, how dreadful it must be!" re-
pliod Muriel, with sympathy iu her
tones.
"Oh, not so bad ns (hat, and after
all it ib only for thirty days. There
are plenty of good fellows among tho
men, and it is only tho nights that are
really vory disagreeable."
"At least, you moan to mako tho
best of it, I can seo that."
"I hope so; add I am looking forward to the novelty ef Indinn life."
*:So am I," said Muriel, nnd Konald
smiled, and thought how differently
that Indian lifo would appear to him
and to her. Ho had rend enough to
know, though ho spoke cheerfully,
that tho soldier experiences all the
discomforts, and tnstoB few or nono of
the pleasures, of existence iu U mdo-
Btan,
Leslie nnd Hammond camo in beforo vory long, ana now Ronald allowed
himself to drop the soldier and talk
aa a guest, Leslie chatted for a whilo
of the places to which they were
bound, and his friend joined in the
conversation, though with a senso of
the oddnoss of the position, ns he recalled to mind certain phrases that
had escaped him a night or two before,
when Corporal Honneit had come
under his displeasure.
Ronald had no wish to outstay his
welcome, and feolltig that the great
object of his visit was attained, he
soon rose and took his leave.
"You need not go yefc," said Leslie,
glancing at tlio clock,
"No, but I should liko to seo something of the town, as I hnvo the opportunity, thanks to you and Mrs. Leslie.
so I think I will say good-bye."
"Good-bye, Ronnld. I shall write
to your mother to-night," said Muriel.
"Thank you—Bhe will know how I
have enjoyed ihis visit," shid ho.
"A pleasant-looking fellow," remarked Hammond afterward. "I
wonder if he remembers how I ruled
him when we were in tho bay. A lot
of ub wero sea-sick, nnd our tempers
wero short enough thnt night."
"He's   improved—tho  service
done him a world of good," replied
Leslie, and his wifo did not dissent.
Tho Second Highlanders wero quartered in tho very popular little station
of Hubbleporo, and Ronald welcomed
with relief thu first sight of the tall, red
brick barracks that werp to be his
abode. Anything, however, would
have been a pleasant change after
thoir experience of days passed in a
troop-train, where they woro shunfed
for long hours into sidings, baked by
tho mid-day sun, choked with thu line
red dust that covered overy comer of
the carriages, and landed at night in
desolate-looking rent-camps, where the
empty tents nnd Bun-dried soil gave
Utile promise of comfort or repose.
Hubbleporo was a favorite station
with officers and ladies, and, iu a I
degree, with the men also. There
wore mnngo topea and spreading ban
yan-treos in tho vicinity of tho bar
racks, wliere shado was to ho found on
a hot evening; there wovo jheels, or
swamps, whero thoBo who could buy
or borrow a gun might shoot snipe nud
wild duck, Hares and quail were to
be picked up now and again by tl
lucky sportsman, whilo for others there
wore pursuits of different kinds.
Men who had been in the hills had
made collections of butterflies, and
some endeavored lo lill up their boxes
with beetles aud insects. The few who
cured to read found a fair library in
the regiment, and for the many lo
whom graver pursuits wero distasteful
there were sundry amusomeuts, including weekly sports, which, though
poor enough in themselves, varied tho
monotony of tho long days.
Tuft of war was then in full swing,
races of overy kind took place, nnd
the native cavalry would enliven the
sceno with an exhibition of tent-pog-
ging and lemon-cutting; or tho ladies
and gentlemen who came in the oourso
of their evening ride to see the fun
would 6nish the performance by riding over the "cavalry jumps."
It waa a pretty eight to see tho
varied crowd that gathered on these
occasions — tho English soldiers in
their hot-wcathor attire of spotless
white, the native cavalry in thoir dark
tunics and handsome blue turbans;
the ladies—many of them first-rate
horsewomen—sitting their protty arabs
to perfection, whilo those who did not
aspire to rido* stepped out of their carriages in tho freshest and coolest of
summer costumes, and smiled and
flirted ovor their ices ns though the
thermometer had not boen standing indoors nt 97° a fow liours ago, and mosquitoes and other insect plagues were
unknown.
•Ronald took a vigorous shaVo in tho
games, whero his active habits stood
liim in good stead, but it was in the
cold weather that ho found occupation
most, readily.
The men of the Second wero great
in theatricals, and they soon discovered
lhat no one among them could speak
as well, or net as easily as Corporal
Bennett. To him, therefore, was always assigned the part of iho principal
gentleman, lover, king, or statesman"
and so well did he please tbo not very
critical audience that ho was by-and-
by asked tu lill a chanco vacancy when
lhe officers and ladies of thu station
began a series of cntertainmonis.
Thero was a little discussion iu thoir
committeo beforo this important step
frfis taken, but the leading spirit of the
club, nn enthusiastic actor, settled the
question by declaring thnt thoy wero
surely sh'ong#huuu"gh to be able to
choose a private soldier—-if lio were a
good performer, especially as he was a
gentleman by birth, too—in preference
to a bad actor, although he happened
to bo a deputy-cornmissioiier"-this being, tho other alternative.
Tho ladies were delighted with Corporal Bennett, ho waa so courteous, so
thoroughly at his case, without beiny
forward; so good-looking, too, especially in powder. Who and what was be 'I
A. gentleman? What a romance! How
miserable he must be, poor fellow!
said they; and under this idea Ronald
was petted and talked to by the protty
amateurs, who ignored the fact that no
trace of misery, or oven of depression,
was to bo seen on his handsome face;
and at last, iu the fullness of thoir
pity, thoy entered his name on the list
of tho Hubbleporo Theatrical Club.
He was in consequence forced to abandon almost entirely tbo Soldiers' Dramatic Club, in which be bad won his
first laurels; but bis comrades took Iho'
desertion as a matter of course, and
contented themselves witlichaffiug him
good-humoredly, after tbey had seen
him play a lover's part with lhe prettiest girl in the station, who had, indeed insisted on liis taking it, in order
to exclude a gentleman whom she disliked.
Ronald himself enjoyed his life
amazingly.; ho knew well enough that
such opportunities would not have
como in bis way bad tlie regiment been
at home, and was quite sufficiently susceptible to tho attention he received;
in fact, could Jamie P-iterson have
seen him aa ho .strolled of an evening
down tho cross-road, by whicli tbe
riders on tho mall were wont to puss,
he Would hnvo laughed ono of his broad
laughs at the sight. The well-made
uniform was worn so neatly, the glengarry was set so jauntily "on three
hairs," tho natty littlo cntie and well-
kept boots made him altogether so unlike tho Ronald ho kuo.v, who cared as
little for his appearance as he did for
tho smiles of the professor's daughters,
who, however, if the truth must be
told, were scarcely as fair or ns piquant
as tho amateur actresses of tho Hub-
blopore club.
Other attractions wero not wanting,
aud perhaps $ but for his. boyish love,
Ronald might have married ihe protty
daughter of tho sergeant-major, whose
battery wa3 quartered beside tiie Sec-
onu, nud, on getting hia promotion,
might havo settled down as a member
of tho sergeants' mess. Tho girl was
good ns well 113 protty, nnd thought,
more of the popular corporal than was
for her peace, nor wore friends wanting
to make him avt-uvc of tho fact; but
thoy did not elicit the response lhey
hoped, nnd perhaps thought him conceited, whereas his genuine pity for
tho girl helped to euro that incipient
failing.
It humbled him to fuel that moro
unliappiness lay at his door than he
had already caused in his far-away
home, but be had no love to offer; be
had loved Muriol Forbes, and though
sho was a dream of Iho past—a being
quite separated in his mind from Mrs,
Lcsiie who had received him at Malta
—he could, not turn away from her
and think of another woman as his
wife.
So Ellen Smith braided her long fair
hair and wore her nice dresses in vain,
when she went to the theatre or to a
soldiers' danco, nnd though she had
admirers in plenty, and was complimented till she wns weary, neither her
brown eyes, her ripe lips, nor her
plump figure and good-tempered face,
mndo any impression on tho obdurate
heart of Corporal Bennett of tbe Second; and sho had to learn her lesson
of patience with greater patience than
ho had bestowed on a similar page.
'   CHAPTERXV.
OFF   I 0, T 11 r,   W A H.
Ronald had been somo time in India
when a season of unusual heat fostered
the dreaded cholera, that lurks so
often, liko a stealthy snake, about the
dusty cantonments, With the epidemic
came the usual incidents—ihu helpless
terror of a panic-stricken few, Iho
hasty flight, tho terrifying rumors;
aud, on the other hand, quiet and disciplined courage, ..heroism of women,
daily funerals, and rapidly increasing
graves.
Moro than ono of tho sergonnls of
tho Second succumbed^ and, though
Ronald's promotion was n mere mailer
of lime, it was no doubt considerably
hastened by tho occurrence of these
unexpected death-vacancies, It was
imperatively necessary that they should
be tilled by men of education nnd intelligence, and no ono was surprised
that Ronald was among tho first selected,
Evon tho trying'scones around hini
could hardly damp his satisfaction,
and the letter ho wrote to his mother
by the following mail was full of almost  boyish glue.

Suicide at timnville.
Ghanvilt-e, Jan. 18.--Tho body of
Long Sing, a Ohinnuiau, who has been
working iu the logging camp of Moodyville Saw Mill Company, was brought
down yCp.let'ti;ty nud an iutptost hob]
to-dny. Evidence went |.o sllow that
some men who V/ont in search of him
found the body under a tree with u
scarf round its neck. It is supposed
ho had climbed a tree and tied tbe
scarf to a linio and then let himself
drop, but that it gave way and he died
afterwards. The verdict rendered was:
"that deceased'came to his de;\th from ■
strangulation   supposed   by bis own
Tise Colonist's Version.
As stated else whero; wo have selected tlio Standard's version of what
transpired in the Ho't. libel caso, not
because it was supposed to be the inore
accurate of the two, but to close the
mouths of those who might try to
tnnko out tbo Colonist's report to have
been unfair. Wo here produce the
Calonfol'x version of the Chief Justice's
reply to Smith's counsel:'—"Tho Chief
Justice—Oh! yes; we can hold this
man up as an example to terrify others
and provont. .tlmiu irommittitig the
siimo outrage. Can you suggest any
othor use than that "f '- scarecrow to
whicli ho can bo put! The libels .of
scoundrels liko ''Briton" nud Smith
would not alt'oct the standing of any
court."
Mi&si Umlcscrved.
Refering to the granting of the rulo
nisi in thu Hett libel case, the Standard
says:—"It was on Mr. A. E. B. Davio's
affidavit, supported by bia individual
statement before the Court on Friday
last, that the ordur was granted, and
hence that gentleman would ^appear lo
have become the oi'imoi* of the Press,
so far as' matters pertaining to the
legal profession are concerned." Noth-
i'ug'could well be more uncalled for
than the above ill-natured (ling tt, Mr.
Davio. As a member of the Bar directly impugned, ho could not honorably have done less than ho did. And
having discharged a disagreeable duty.
Mr. Davie exhibited a spirit of forbearance and magnanimity in suggesting that the Court might, be satisfied
with tho'stiitoinont and apology put in
by the publisher arid generously de-
clinmg *to olnim any costs. Hid Mr.
Davio oxhibitod n vindicative und
mercenary Spirit instead i*f the very
reverse, tho Standard could not have
said worse. But it, is too much, per-
litips, to expect decency, much le*s
gratitude, from sucli fftjitut-luV.'

Caution.
We beg to call the attention of the
trade and the public to the well-known
ipinlity and elegance of finish of our
Cold Cases, guaranteed by us tobwof
eighteen karat Gold, U. R. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Gold, us may be
stamped, ami also to our mode of selling
the name, chargiug only for tlio Actual
WkiaiiT of the gold used, and not for
the base metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc. To illustrate
whicli a tag accompanies each one of our
Gold Cases, which plainly indicates not
only the gross weight of the case, but
also Iho Not weight of the gold.
Jn explanation of tlie above we desire
to miy thnt the old plan of chargmg for
the gross weight of the case, ns if it were
all gold, worked well enough as long nu
the manufacturers were content with the
amount of, brans end steel actually ro
quired in its con^tniction; but when thu
business-was degraded into n contest as
to who should get the most base metal
into the least quantity of gold and call it
a Gold caso, then the time came when,
in the interest of dealers in American
Watches, it, became necessary to adopt a
plan of selling, showing the buyer exactly how much Gold each case contained.
Tonveid imposition, purchasers of Waltham VyStcllCB will observe tlint every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
bears our trade marl; on both ease and
movement. Gold cases are stamped "A.
W. C-p.;"and guarantee certificates ao
company them. Silver canes ere stamped
"A. M. Watch Co., VVnltli-iin, Mass.,
sterling silver," nud are accompanied by
guarantee cortificntos, signed R. R. Rob-
bin's, treasurer. The name* "Waltham"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
murks. This caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our cases
are frequently separated from oiq- movements, and put upon worthless movements of other makers and rice versa,
thus allceting injuriously the perform*
mice of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER XVIII.
"KlItED LN THE DEFEAT."
(Continued.)
"Very good indeed, for a man of
that age—'Duncan Forbes;' it's quito
clear, Bennett," said one of tho others,
good-naturedly; and Ronald smiled,
and, pocketing his lottoi', wont-off.
"You'd better-let that follow alone,
Badger; he's not ono to let a thing
slide." continued tho other, coldly.
"•Ho must be right enough, or Sir
Duncan wouldn't sign himself, 'your
very sincere old friend,'"
Captain Badger gavo a grunt, wliich
might havo been meant to express assent or contempt; but he did not mention Mrs. Leslie again in Ronald's
hearing. Tlio incident of the letter,
however, intensified his dislike—for it
was intolerable to feel that this ranker,
whom no one know anything about,
was apparently on intimate, or at least
friendly, terms in a lumsu to which he,
Badger, had vainly tried to gain nccea-f.
The truth was, that on tho night whon
he had once met Muriel at a ball he
had done his best to "make the running)" ns ho phrased it, knowing her
to be an heiress. His efforts mndo a
■great impression upon her, us her
father perceived when sho begged hiin
nevor, on any account, to invito Cup-
tain Badger to the house; and evon
that officer's noted imperviousuuss to
hints or slights was not proof against
■the calm dignity with which Miss
•Forbes rejected hfo overtures, nor had
tho incident ever faded from his
memory.
In his letter Sir Duncan informed
Ronald that Leslie had lately rejoined
his regiment, and that Muriel wub living at Inverallan during his absence.
"Your mother and she try to comfort
each other," lie wrote; "but I think
the anxiety is tolling on them both."
Ronald, as ho thought of Muriel's
happy face as ho had seen it at Malta,
could well imagine the trial sho was
undergoing, and in ln's next letter
homo expressed a fervent hopo that
Leslie might como safe out of the war.
-Jt was true that, in spite of her
youth, Muriel suffered more than Mrs.
Bennett, because of a perfectly un-
teasotiable conviction that possessed
herthat sho would nevor see her husband's face again.' For weeks she bore
her dread silently; but when the
Sixty-sixth was ordered to Southern
Afghanistan it overmastered her, and,
■flinging herself on tho littlo old footstool at mainsie's feet, she gave utter-
;anco to the terror that oppressed her.
She could not havo chosen a worse
confidante; for mamsie, whose Highland superstitious had never been altogether eradicated, was a linn believer in presentiments us well as in
aecond sight, uud her heart sunk as
Muriel spoke.
"We musii't thipk too much of a
more fancy, my bairn, sho said, in a
voice that belied her words.
"But you believe it—I know you
do!" cried Muriel, lifting her head
from her old friend's lap and looking
earnestly into her face. "You know
you havo no such fear about Ronald;
and if you hud, you would trust it—*
wouldn't you, mamsio?'1
"I'm afraid I would, my dear—
though it would be against my judgment. No, I've faith that I'll see my
son again beforo I dia; but oh, my
dear, we can't tell! Sorrow may be my
lot, and you may welcome your husband homo yet. James would toll ynu
it iB sinful to put dependence on a feeling liko yours/'
"Very likely he would; hut could
he take it awny ? It is just a thing to
bear, for no words can alter it. Oh,
Frank — Frank!" murmured Muriel,
and Mrs. Bennett did not attempt to
console her savo hy a mute caress.
"I must go and walk, mamsie," sho
said at last, raising a flushed faco—"I
cannot rest, I cannot bear poor Aunt
Alicia's talk about it all. If I walk
about tho hills, where I am alone, I
feel stronger, and when I am weary
enough I sleep better."
"Ay, my bairn, tho overlusting hills
are a great sanctuary; enrry your sorrow there, and maybe you will find
peace," said mamsie; and Muriel wandered awny on the golden bent, up hy
the bracken and the birch, and
through the rocky glen, and did not
know that to that vory spot Ronald
had carried his misery years before,
when she herself was at once the pain
and joy of his life.
To the women at homo the Afghan
war was rendered peculiarly trying by
the suddenness of its vicissitudes.
Again and again did they hopo that all
peril was at an end, only to find that a
fresh storm had arisen — black and
dangerous as the thunder-cloud that
sweeps rapidly over tha summer heavens.
Muriel rose every morning with her
courage braced to meet the tulegrams
in the daily papers; and when they
were read, and twenty-four hours must
elapse before farther news could be
received, she went about her occupations mechanically, making little cll'ort
to shake off the dull weight of her
fears. Had she been a nurse, able to
go out and help—bad any action been
possible to her—her native vigor would
have asserted itself. But to' wait--
wait helplessly, a prey to that overmastering fear—was almost more than
she could endure. And now tho Slier-
pore siege was ovor, Ay.-ob Khun was
in the field, and the Sixty-sixth was at
Kandahar, with the one my stoadly advancing.
Sir Duncan was grieved to the heart
for Ins darling, and did what he could
to comfort her, hut talked I.tile of the
chances, knowing that during suspense
silence is indeed golden.
Unfortunately, Miss Alicia thought
otherwise, and with tho querulouBness
of a weak nature she harped perpetually on tho one themo, till Muriel used
I to leave the room in agony. Years,
though they Imd mollowcd her heart,
Had not improved Miss Forbes' appearance. Her skin had grown yellow
and faded, so that it wits hard to say
whether her gold or silver ornaments
were more unbecoming. Hor dross
was tighter than of yore, and somewhat more brilliant in color; and ns
she sat at her knitting, uttering her
fanmrki 6n the progress of the campaign, and mingling in a hopeless con
from each other, even her brother's
pationcu was surely tried, and he would
beg her to turn hor thoughts to other
topics.
"How can I, Duncan, when, for
anything wo know, poor Frank may be
lying dead now, and we silting here ?
and you know they always mutilate
the bodies shockingly. It will bo dreadful for poor dear Muriol," sighed Aunt
Alicia; and Sir Duncan echoed the
sigh, and wisely forbodo to arguo with
her.
Muriel's love had softened her aunt's
harsher nature, aud the success of hor
schemes for tho girl had left her nothing to desire. She wns leading a comfortable lifo, with hor wishes granted
almost as soon as thoy wore formed,
nnd' she resented with childish impatience this new anxiety that hnd dis
turbed them just when everything was
su pleasantly settled. Perhaps if there
wero a great sorrow to bo faced sho
might show a braver spirit, but in tho
moan timo she ndded tenfold to her
niece's trial. v
The sorrow oiune only too Boon.
Muriel, who hud been for some days
strangely pule and rosUess, saw it
iu her father's face the moment lie
opened the papers, and sho came round
behind him nnd read tin*; panic-stricken
telegram- that told of the disaster at
Maiwiuid and the almost total deal ruction of Leslie's regiment.
"Thero nre no names, darling—ho
may be safe," said Sir Duncan, putting his arm round her.
"No, papa—I know ho is killed. I
saw him three .nights ngo—let ino see
—the 27th. It was that very night.
Oh, let mo go—let no ono come near
me!" cried Muriel, and she lied away
to hide her misery within lief own
room;" nor would she unlock the door
for many hours.
From London Sir Duncan obtained
by wire the earliest possible information; but it added nothing to lior pain
when he told her that Leslie was indeed among the killed—Iter certainly
had been complete from the first.
To her bedside camo mamsie, with
tearful eyes, while friends crowded to
oiler sympathy and inquiry fur her.
Old Jamie's whito head was seen daily
at the lodge-gates, and letters puurod
in upon iier, which after a day nr two
sho handed unopened to her father.«
"Answer thom— burn them; or no,
send thofil to the Leslies. What good
can they do me !"
Aunt Alicia went softly about the
house ih a frightened silence; only
Mrs. Bennett had power to rouse
Muriel, and she soon ceased to.mako
the attempt.
"Leave her alone, Sir Duncan -let
hor lie still and sleep. Tho strain of
the last few weeks hns beeu terrible;
let her. get over it in her own way.
She is no coward, and she'll como
among us again of herself in a littlo
while."
Mra. Bennett's advice was taken,
and time justified it. Gradually the
torpor which had numbed bony and
mind paused away; and Muriel, the
ghost of what sho once was, crept out
of her room one morning in her heavy
Mack robes, and without saying a word
took her accustomed 'place at the head
of tho breakfast-bible.
Her father kissed her in silence, and
tried to second hur effort j but Aunt
Alicia's tears dropped into her teacup,
and her voice, when she uddrliBSod her
niece, was barely audible, Her courage onco stirred, however, Muriel did
hot allow herself to lapse into despondency, but set herself to gather up the
threads of her lifo, and re-avraiigo
them so as to suit her present circumstances.
Inverallan was, of courso, to bo b
home; and by-iuid-hy, when exertion
seemed to bo the only refuge from sor
row, she accepted her place there as
its future mistress, and began to Icar
something of the management of. the
estate—going into figures and master
ing details with patience---fur, as ehi
said pathetically, while she lingered a
pile of documents, "There will be nu
one to help me now; and if I have to
live longer than you, pupa, the place
muBt be cared for aa you would wish."
Muriel waa still very young -young
enough to feel for the moment that
impatience of sorrow that makes death
seem not only preferable but possible;
and her father was too, wise to Illume
hor. Ho hoped that some day rIu-
might outlivo her grief and find another helpmate; but he only patted her
shoulder, and romiudud'hor gravely
that bo had lived 011 and tried to miiko
his life useful, though he had suffered
just such a loss as hers; whereupon she
blushed deeply and returned to the
papers, feeling that she had said a
childish thing.
It was not often, however, that any
complaints escaped tier. She bore her
sorrow quietly as n rule, mul hardly
spoko of her husband; her ono wish
seemed to bo to (bug herself into the
daily lifo around her, and to bury the
past, and no one knew tho wild longing that made her heart ache—the de-
Biro to know how Leslie had died.
If she could only hear that he had
been shot on the Held she would have
been happier—unch a death wan quick,
merciful, honorable. But if he ban
not fallen so, if ho had endured the
tortures of tlmt terrible retreat—the
thirst, thu fatigue, the bitter shame—
then indeed her cup would be full, for
she would bo forever haunled by I he
thought of what his proud spjrtl must
have suffered. Surely some one, some
brother ollicer, would write to her by*
aiid-by; but weeku might pans before
sho cmild hear, and moreover there
was litile time for writing, or clmneo
of despatching letters to England, during tho lirst days of bewildering fear
and Indecision when the enemy's
armies surged round Kandahar.
Thero wns nothing for hor but patience; onco more she must wait till
there should come 111111 inevitable recovery and re assertion of power lhat
has hitherto followed, slowly perhaps,
but suriily, upon every English disaster. Shu had nnt long to wuit; again
did the avenging army deiterve its
name, ns it gathered itself together
and swooped down upon tho triumphant foe.
