Is It Too Late?
The striking miners of Nanaimo
have adopted a resolution declaring
that none of them will hereafter employ Chinamen for any purpce*
whatever. The resolution is a very
proper one. If every employer of
Uborle British Columbia-wi
aim' a similar principle, the Chi-
. new evil would "rfieedily be reduced
to very insignificant dimensions, or
entirely disappear. In this province
the opinion is nearly universal that
Chinamen are seriously interfering
; with the solid progress of the country. Under tome oircumatances
their help seems to be almost indispensable, but these circumstances
have, to * great extent, been brought
about by the presence of the Chi.
neae. If we had not accustomed
ourselves to depend upon thein, we
would net miss them when they go.
But it may be that the resolution cf
the Nanaimo miners, however pro
per in itself, comes too lato to accomplish the object in view. It was the
miners themselves who largely introduced Chineee labor into the coal
mines. If the published statements
are to be accepted aa true, it has
been the habit of many miners to
employ Chinamen to do their work.
The Chinaman, of course, received
small pay, and the white man took
bis esse and pocketed the difference
between what he received for his
coal end what he paid the Celestial
for digging it, Since the strike has
assumed a phase Which leaves very
little hope of satisfactory adjustment,
it hss been rumored that Mr. Duns-
sauir proposes to employ a fores ot
Chinamen in his mines, under direction of whito bosses. We do not
know whether the rumor has any
foundation in tact, but tbe resolution brought forward by the miners
would lead one to suspect thst they
believe it hss. It these mines are
worked by Chinamen, the white
men must go. The two classes could
never work together harmoniously
in tbe strained condition ot public
feeling which now exists. Such ■
result would be unfortunate beyond
measure. It would throw out of
employment ■ class of men who ere
of greet benefit to the eountry, not
only became they en engaged in de-'
veloping one ot the most important
ot our provincial resources but bosuns » greet portion of their earnings goes immediately into circulation in the province. It would give
the Chinese en additional foothold
tram whioh they' might possibly
never be driven, It is to be hoped
seme eirengement meybe brought
•bout which will enable Mr. Dunsmuir to employ his old men, and
that when they receivs employment
lhey nuy not forget ell about ths
Chinese resolution. But their present attitude li any thing but hopeful ot sueh a result Not msny deys
ego * number of miners were brought
from San Francisco to work at the
Nanainio mines. After tbey landed tbe striken bad a conference
with them end the new comers re-
fused to enter the mines end joined
the strike. Now, if such tactics ere
ooniinaed, one of two things mutt
result Either s settlement will be
made between Hr. Dunsmuir snd
tho mien, or Mr. Dunsmuir will put
Chinese Into the mines, It juratt be
obvious to everybody that tho mines
' cannot be allowed much longer to
remain idle. Tkecapital invested is
too large and ths consequent less too
great Tfce mines must be worked,
anof if Mr. Dunsmuir cannot agree
wild ilie old miners, and the old
miners will prevent new ones from
taking their pieces, the Chinese pjnst
go in. It teems to us thst the present disputes should be submitted to
an arbitration ooupoeed ot disinter
ested persons, snd that both parties
should bind themselves to abide by
the reeult   ,

it would last two years more. It aorved

what is just enough for the bare necessaries of life. My own observations
have been mostly confined to thia and
the adjoining provinces, and I exclude
the cultivators of tea, sik, and opium,
who, growing a commodity more and
more in demand and easily transportable, are In a far botter position than
the ordinary peasant! but speaking for
the greater pari of China, I believe I
am not over-stating the case in saying
that for tha working agricultural masses
it is a daily hand-to-hand struggle with
want. In a auecession of good year,
they are very comfortable, they have
enough to eat and to wear, aud they
have -few other wonts; bnt population
ia ever increasing up te the food limit,
and when a bad year or two comes
they dio off by hundreds or thousands.
Two or three causes may readily be
named as having mainly conduced to
this stats of things—causes which are
generally to he found among Aaiatio
race.. The rule prohibiting the devolution of property by will, and making
division compulsory among' all male
children, tends rapidly to reduce all
holdinga to a minimum—that is to the
very lowest quantity out of whioh it
is poaiible to make a living. Here, aa
everywhere olie, energy and good luck
rates individuals to a position of
wealth, who may, if they choose*; become large landowners; but in the
course of a few generations thu universal equaliser, aided by tha apathy
of the ordinary Chinese when in comfortable circumstances, will have reduced things to the former dead level.
Another equally potent factor is the
habit of too early marriages. Parents
deem it a religious duty to provide
matches for their children as soon aa
they are of marriageable years, and
the young people go to the altar in
much the samo way as they go to
school in Europe. It never occurs to
them to ask firat whether they have
the mesne to marry or whether there
will be enough to nil the mouths that
may come afterward. The avil is further, aggravated by the joint family
system, which takes the responsibility
off one's own shoulders and' pnts it
jointly on that of half a doaan othen.
when a man knewe that he will get an
equal share of what is going, whether
he earns it or not, and that the benefit
of his denying himself any particular
indulgence will accrue to others as well
aa to himsolf, a great motive for thrift
is withdrawn.
In one respect the Chinese peasant
is in e better position than the Indian
ryot; h. ii not in debt to money-lender.. But I do not know that this is
a virtus for which he is entitled to
muoh-credit, for, there is ao class of
raoney.leodere to whom he could get
In debt. Indeed,,!; em net aire that
he is net ibereby inaleesadrairlageous
C'tion, for when hard yean come he
no means of pledging his property,
whieh, if he c'euld, might save him
from shser starvaticn.
It Is a melancholy thought, but it
seems inevitable, both in the cue of
the Chinese, and Indian peasant, that
the great bulk ahould necessarily be in
a atate of constant poverty. The food
production is limited, and the growth
of the population unlimited. A good
end stable government may remove
many natural checks on the latter, with
the object of improving the condition
of the people, but it is doubtful if that
is any real kindness. It only postpones
the Inevitable, end drives them on to
another check all the more terrible because delayed. Emigration and self-
restraint, the only true remedies, are
hopeless in dealing with an ignorant
population counted   by hundred, of
i Mott&tT Pacinc Kates.-Tho
west-bound through freight tariff of
the Northern Pacific and Oregon Railway and Navigation Company, issued
August 35th, haa bean amended ao
that the rates to San Franoisco, Tacoma and Seattle are the same as to
Portland, These rates from St. Paul,
Duluth, Minneapolis and Superior aro:
Firat-class, Hoo per hundred pounds;
second clue, 13.76; third-class, 83;
fourth-class, 12.35'; class A, 82.10;
class B, 11.86; class C, 81.00; class D.
11.36. By this arrangement St. Paul
end Minneapolis inirclianta will bu
able to lay down gooda in Ssn Franoisco at the same rales they now ship
them t6 Portland. Tho Northern Pacific managers are determined to secure a monopoly of Ihis trade, and
with this end in view, will make arrangement, that will enable them to
put these goods In San Franoisco in as
good, If not better, time than any other
road, The ocean trip will ba materially shortened aa regards time. Coming out from the oout, canned goods
can he shipped to the St. Paul and
Minneapolis markets at the same rate
from Sen Francisco u from Portland.

From a telographio despatch
published elsewhere it will be seen
that the arrangements lately made
(or supplying the mainland with
resident judges will shortly go into
effect. Mr. Justice McCreight will
reside at New Westminster nnd Mr.
Justice Walkem at Kamloops. We
are sole every one will rejoice at so
successful a termination ot a much
vexed question.
Speculation.
The spirit of speculation seems to
have taken hold of the people of this
coast, aud leal estate ia changing
hands freely. In some respects the
prices asked for property hereabouts
are less than ono might expect. Tlio
Americana have gone far beyond ns.
At Seattle, Tacoma, and even at
Whatcom, property is very" much
higher than at tin's city or Burrard
> Inlet. There is very little doubt but
Tacoma will be the principal terminus of tho Northern Pacific Bail-
way on tbe Sound, and Seattle is no
more, therefore, than the terminus
of a branch. But property at Seattle
ia held at an enormous, figure, lots
selling for as much as $30,000; $40,-
000, and $50,000 cuch. The commercial importance of tho Canadian
Pacific Kailway terminus on this
coast should not be less than thnt of
the Northern Pacific on the sound.
The principal reason why land has
not advanced more rabidly in-price
is a doubt respecting th. location of
the permanent terminus. If it oould
bo made absolutely certain that the
terminus would remain at Port
Moody, property would go up with
a bound. But while that matter remains in doubt speculators proceed
with caution. Quite a number are
investing loth ut Port Moody and
Coal Harbor, so that, whichever
place becomes the actual terminus,
they will bo in the ting. This speculation is not without advantage t.
the country. It brings in a certain
amount of foreign capital and puts
money in circulation. But it hat
disadvantages aa well. Persons who
come here for the purpose of building homes or engaging in business
are sometimes discouraged at the
prices asked for lots, wliich are beyond their means. We believe property holders should exercise a wise
discrimination between speculators
and actnal settlers. The man who
settles upon a lot of land and improves it, increases the value of all
the lands adjoining, and he should
be able to purchase at a lower figure
than if he proposed to hold for
speculation. Every encouragement
should be held ont to actual settle
ment and permanent improvement.
Road Building.
Good roads are, perhaps, the thing
most needed by the farmers of this
district. Indeed, thero is no part of
the mainland where tho public roads
are at all sufficient for the wants of
the people. There are aome parts of
the country whero the cost of constructing good roads will, be vory
heavy, and tho extent of the country
itself is so great that for many years
road-building ahould he the government's chief concern. Everybody
most be gratified at the large appropriations made by the government
this year for road work. But these
appropriations will not be sufficient
by any means to give us good roads.
If judiciously expended, however,
they ought to accomplish a great
deal. Although only a portion of
the appropriations will be spent this
season, ws are glad to find that the
government are doing some excellent
road work in thia district. From
information obtained at the immigration office in this city ws learn
that the old road at Riverside is
being opened up ao as to connect
with the New Westminster and Yale
road. This will enable the people
living between tho trunk road and
ths boundary line to roach Fraser
rirer and the best markets, Mr.
Barnes is in charge ot this road. At
Lower Matsqui Mr. Benson is making a now road from a point at Lehman's. Landing to connect with ths
New Westminster and Yale rbad
whence it will go on to the boundary,
following the line between sections
11 and 12, in township H. This
rood will be a straight line, dne
south, and it opens np a tract of
land whioh wo aro told can scarcely
bo surpassed in tbo provinco. This
land Is now settled back for a dis-
tones of about 6 miles. Thoro should
bo erected as soon as possible a
school house and a church, aa there
art at present About 26 children of
school ago in tho settlement, and the
natnbor is contimially increuii-g. It
will probably bo doubled before the
end of this year, Road work has
also been undertaken at Maple
Ridge. Commencing at a point be-
tween sections 16 and 22 a road is
being' constructed due east so as to
roach a very important settlement
which has lately been established
thero. A. large number of people
have taken up land along the line of
this road up ns far as Stave river,
and last SatunUy 11 moro went up
to locale claims. These people have
no means of reaching the river at
any landing, except through the
bush. Thero is still a quantity of
land in this region unoccupied, Which
will doubtless be taken up shortly in
view of the construction of this road.
The immigration agent thinks that
about 60 moro people could find comfortable hcines along the road. The
work ia being superintended by Mr.
Stevens. The New Westminster and
Semiahmuo wagon road will soon be
in very good ordor, aud it will greatly facilitate communication with the
important settlements beyond the
river. It is probable that when tbat
rouil has been completed and the
steam furry established across the
Fraser, a regular line of stages will
be put on between this city and
Semiahmoo. As soon as the proper
season for road-making begins next
spring the balance Of the government appropriations will he spent,
with the addition, probably, ot a
substantial supplement out of next
year's revenue. If the policy pursued by the present government bo
maintained, and the balance of the
dry-dock refund ho spent in making
roads on the mainland, we should
make very material advancement in
the next two or three years. In all
fairness the Dominion government
ought to assist iu this work.. The
province does not receive anything
from the sale of landB within the
railway belt, and it is scarcely reasonable to expect that she shall furnish
roads to facilitate the salo of Dominion lands. When Sir Alexander
Campbell visited this city last slimmer ho concurred in the justness of
this view, and we hope that next
season the fruits of that concurrence
may be seen. If the appropriations
made by the provincial government
for roads wero supplemented as they
ought to be by tho Dominion, our
roads would very speedily present nn
appearance which would invite settlement instead of repelling it.
Money Begging for Investment
New York, Oot. 14. — Cyrus
Field, Jr., who arrived from Liverpool yesterday, said to a reporter:
"The idea that most of the English
capital is already invested is entirely
false. More money ia begging investment in London to-day than
ever before. While sitting in a
prominent banker's office one morning, one ef his customers, a wealthy
lord from the country, came in and
ordered 50,000 shores of Northern
Pacific preferred, stock, to be paid
for as soon as it arrived. It afforded Londoners no end of amusement
to read the accounts in New York
papers about what is termed 'Yil-
lard's brass band;' nevertheless it
has had a healthy effect, and hankers are looking anxiously to reports
which aro rapidly coming in, describing the country in tho northwest
in the most glowing terms. The
Germans aro almost wild about the
sights thoy met on their travels."
Battle Among Uee8.
Two days ago the Topsharo Horticultural ill Cottage Garden Society
held its annual exhibition at tbe retreat, near Exeter. One of the tents
waa occupied by the Devon & Exeter
Beekeepers' Association, and among
its exhibits was one which excited
a very great deal of interest. This
was a case containing several thousand dead drones which had lost
thoir lives a few days previously.
A well known apiarian wns visiting a friend's house several days
beforo, and in coming to one of the
beehives it was found that there
was a gnat uproar inside. Closer
inspection showed the ground below the hive to bo covered with
several hundred dead drones, and
hosts of thorn wero still being
brought to the entrance and bundled out by the workers—generally
by being seized behind the head
and dragged along to the exit,
whero as a kind of farewell a sting
was givsn to them. Examination
of the slain revealed the fact that
they had been severely deslt with;
many wore headless, others . had
lost legs or wing or both, and all
bore evidence of rough usage. Thut
the bees were very much ths au-
perior forco wna shown by tho fact
that only about fifty of them had
fallen in the fray—a remarkablo
disproportion to tlie number of the
enemy. The battle bad raged from
about seven in the morning to tho
same hour in the evening, and
seemed to snd with the utter annihilation of the drones.—St. James
Oanetts.

* VERITUU MODERN RIP VAN W1MKIE.
A gentleman who haa beon travelling
through Alabama writes u piece of curious experience to the New York Tribune. He wu making a journey on
horseback, through a part of tho state
when settlen are u acaroe as locusts
in British Columbia. After three
days' travelling on a road which had
not been used for many yean he came
to an old plantation, owned by a man
of 70 years. For 20 yean this man
had lived in complete isolation, without ever having ventured beyond the
boundaries pf nil own possessions. On
the plantation wen employed t number of Negro alavu who wen u ignorant as their muter ot current crenta.
The planter hu been t paralytic for 26
years. Long ago hu wife died. One
of hia two sons had bun murdered in
New Orleans, and the other fell during the early stages of the Confederate war. The result of that war the
{ilantcr had never heard, but he took
t for granted that the secession had
been succeuful. Neither he nor his
servants knew that slavery had been
abolished in America. Bia davu
wen much attached to him, and had
nowiah to leave. Be raieed on his
plantation everything necessary for his
establishment; never bought or sold
anything; had no correspondence; took
no papers; and had not aeen a white
man for 20 yean. When told thit
the rebellion had been crushed, and
slavery abolished, this Rip Van Winkle came to the conclusion that his
visitor wu crazy, and appeared relieved when he took hia departure.
Tha story reads like a piece of fiction,
but it is declared to be true In every
particular.

EXTENT m CNMtOTER OF lANDS IN 1.0.
The following extracts from the evidence of Dr. Dawson befon the oom-
mittee of immigration and colonization
will be found of great interest:
Q. Will you state generally your
opinion of the agricultural and pastoral landa of Bntieh Columbia, their
situation and extent, and also tho
character of the soils and climate in
different districts of that province*—
British Columbia ia naturally divided
Into two very distinct parti agriculturally by the mountains which form the
cout range. The interior region hu
a climate of extremes and in tho
southern part ia very dry. The cout
region has a.mild, equable climate.
British Columbia muat, however, be
considered throughout as an agricultural and mountainous country, that ia
the amount of arable land, compared
to the whole surface, ia comparatively
small. I do not say this to the disadvantage of Britisli Columbia, aa it
must ue remembered that other Countries, known to lie very productive,
tn similarly situated -in California
for instance, it has beon estimated that
only one-fifteenth of'tlto Stato is flat
land, not mountainous, and only a
part of that ia edtivable. The southern part of the interior, cut of the
Fraser river, ia the district whioh hu
so far attracted most attention agriculturally. The cultivation ia restricted
u a rule to the valleys, whioh in
wide and trough-like, and cut through
the surface of the plateau, and the
dimate ia so dry in summer that irrigation is necessary. This is, however,
generally euy on account of the number of streams running from the higher
plateaux and mountains, and with
irrigation very fine crops an produced.
The higher plateaux anuiot cultivable
owing to their altitude and the fact
that summer frosts occur.     These
higher plateaux, turnover, aro covered
largely with bunch grass, and form
thoso renowned stock raising regions
which have given the south of British
Columbia such importance in : that
respeot. Thus, the mere area of agricultural lands does not give the full,
measure df the capacity of tho country for maintaining an agricultural and
stock-raising population. A 'man
with, a comparatively email farm in
these valleys has largo herds of stook
whioh' roam over the hills and sustain
themselves on the natural grass. The
whole-area of agricultural landa east of
the Frasor river in southern British
Columbia I have estimated at some:
thing under 1,000 square miles, of
whioh about 500 square miles probably
may be easily utilized. s
' Q. Have you anything to say in
reference. to the character of the soil
and the climate?—Tho character of the
soil is dmost. uniformly, very fertile
in these valleys. The climate in summer is very dry and warm. Itiaone
of extremes. In winter the cold is
considerable, but the cattle still winter out very well and live dl the year
round on the natural grasses.
Q. In the interior portion?—In the
interior portion; yes.
Q. The climate, I believe, is very
good upon tne sea shore?—Yes. In
the northern part, then, of the interior plateau, thero is another extensive low country, which I have estimated the area of at about 1,230
square miles. Tho soil of this ia
dmost uniformly good,' but, boing to
a groat extent covered with trees* it
cannot be utilized so readily for agricultural purposes, and it lies, besides,
off the .proposed route of tho railway,
and is not likely to ho opened up for
aome time. Still, it ia a country I
have every reason to believe will be
eventually occupied by an agricultural,
population.    .
Q. You speak of tho northern part
of tho interior—north of what parallel of latitudo would tbat be?—It
would be. chiefly north of the 51st
garallel, aiid west of the Fraser river
i the, basin of the Nechacco and its
tributaries. The coast region is of
course not liable to any of these difficulties pf drought or occasional summer frost that - aome of the highor
regions of the interior an exposed to.
The dimate ia exceedingly mild, and
in the aggregate these is a large quantity of agricultural land. On the
Island of Vancouver, Mr. J. Hunter,
who prepared a report on this subject
for the 0. P. Railway Report of 1880,
estimated that there aro 889,000 acres
of agricultural land, of which about
300,000 acres are well suited for agriculture. Of this, only about 10,000
are ao for cultivated, but a great-portion of the flat country which ia suitable for agriculture in Vancouver
Island ia in the samo way very densely covered with forests, and, owing
to the high price of labor at the present time, and the comparatively small
number of people in the country, it'is
not economically advantageous to
clear the forests or bring the lands
under cultivation now. Ou tho Queen
Oharlotto Islands there are some 700,-
000 acres of low land on the north-
cast cout, a great part of which may
eventually be brought under tillage,
but it ia dso covered densely with
forests at present, of very'fine trees,
and ita immediate value iau a timber
producing region. At the mouth of
the Fraser river, the flat land probably
amounts to .more than the whole in
the Island of Vancouver, and some of
it is of very excellent quality. Generally, the soils of British Columbia,
where . they are cultivable at all, are
exceedingly fertile, and the crops pro-:
duced on the mainland and on Vancouver Island are very large. Wheat,
u an example, averages 30 to 40 bushels -to an acre on land at all well cultivated.

fish, fish culture, refrigerators, fishing
boat models, and fishing tugs. There
ia a very clou contest between Newfoundland and Canada for the first
position in dried fish. The relative
positions have not yet been decided.

Tbe Leading Power of Europe.
Thirteen years ago the French Empire perished on the Add of Sedan;
Thirteen yoars ago the Freheh Republic was proclaimed in the streets of

Germany. * Her right to it wu proved
then; it hu never been challenged

hu held uncontested the headship of

Heedless of Sum Welter.
Officer Button, of the.Union Depot,
picked up ,tho other dry n meuiuran-.
du in book uvideutly lust by some one
attending tlio State Fair. All the entries wore made in a businesslike mnn*
net, and some of them are readable.
The first entry is:
"Shall take $16 with me to tho State
Fair. Secuml-class hotel good enough
for inc. liownruj-.f pickpockets. Keep
your eyes open for a good look iny
widow. View the- animals, and duirt
forgot to take two clean handkerchiefs
along." .
The second reads: "Fair up to the
average.. -Saw a widow in the oar ■ going up. Didn't seem to like my style.
Somebody has struck me with a bogus
half-dollar. Saw another widow on
the grounds. Itutberton Bloat. Viewed
the animals and wns kicked by a
steer."
Third entry—"Good attendance.
Slept on the floor. Jam un the street
cars. Passed the bogus money off on
a bootbluok. Saw a widow at the hotel. Most tuo lean. Went to tho
theatre lut night. Oan't remember
tlm play,;. Saw several widows, but no
chance to'make an impression."
Fourth entry—"Big crowd on the
grounds. 'Beat my way in. Saw a
widow on the fence. Moat too boisterous for my locality. Saw n horse race.
One horse beat nll the others, Viewed
tho machinery, and was hit on tho ear
hy a loafer. Saw a widow viewing a
headless rooster. Mouth most too
large for my part nf the State. Slept
in a burn for nothing."
Fifth entry—"Saw a widow fn the
postoffice. Blind in oiio eye. No good.
Big jam. Tried to beat my way in,
but couldn't. Saw a hone race. Saw
a widow on the grand stand. Bowed
to her. Oold cut. Viewed the big
ox. Saw a widow in Honey Hall.
Raised my hat. Got left.   Feel blue."
As that was the last entry it would
seem m If he gavo up in disgust nnd
started for home. A person supposed
to be him "saw a widow" at tho depot
Friday afternoon, and became so obnoxious that she nit him over the head
with an umbrella and two or three
men reached for him with cowhide
boots.— Detroit Free Ems,

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
"When he rose from that loug weary
sickness, and was able to take Iub
place in tho pulpit again, tho first
thing tliat mat hia sight was.Sir Ralph
biting his heavy mustache in the pw
beneath, and Lady Perojr beside httu,
hor girliah beauty heightened by
bridal finery. It wns pride thot bore
Hubert through that and many succeeding services; and presently Sir
Ralph censed to como, and after that
Amy. '
"All tliat my poor friend wished at-
this time was' to be left alone to hia
misery, but there waa one whose con-
- turned coming wearied him beyond
measure. It waa Harriette, whose
flowers, fruit, books and proffered
sympathy woro alike irksome; yet
how could lie bo ungrateful fur such
kindness? How look coldly on one
whose sad pale face testified how she
felt for him?
"Presently, so tunely was his outer
life, so dreary tho void within, ho
censed to dread her visits, nay, liked
and encouraged them, believing he had
found a true, friend. I do not know
how it happened, whether Harriette
fiurposely betrayed hanolf and tho
ove which had taken its mot in a
curse; but one day Hubert knew he
was beloved, hopelossly, faithfully it
' aeemod to him. Thon, with a generosity unparalleled in men, he swore
another human boing should never
suffer what ho hod suffered; and that
if Harriette, who had been so true a
friend to him in his misery, could be
content with mere esteem and friendship, he would make her his wife. It
was what sho had toiled and worked
wickedly for; it-was not that Bhe
ahould say him nay.
"So Hubert took her home to the
gray old parsonage; end in the parsonage pew where he had hoped to
ue the sweet girl face framed in its
golden hair, sat Harriette Olive with
her dusky face and luminous black
eyes.
"Oh, woe for the day when he took
her homo as bride; before two months
were over the awful temper displayed
itself, which was tho precursor of insanity. Almost before the honeymoon was out ho had seen the dark
handsome faco .convulsed and livid
with passion, and liad heard words
that 'vexed his righteouB soul.'
"What he suffered that year is
known only to him and Heaven; Hu-
. bert sometimes compares it shudder-
ingly to a hell upon earth; sensitive
as a woman, and with the finest moral
. feelings, hu folt himself defiled, coming in contact with that stormy debased nature. Then and not till then
ho know who originated aud widened
tho breach between him and Amy;
who had encouraged Sir Ralph, and
1 assisted them in their work of treachery. Every occasion he gave her for
jealousy—and hers was 'c^uel ns the
grave,1 and could be evoked hy n
trifle—she tore open tho festering
wounds; she taunted him with the old
dear life; and had not this timo had
nn end, Hubert must have died, or
fled, or gone mad; the man was
growing haggard and miserably, ill.
At last to Harriette waa vouchsafed
the divine rights of maternity, 'and
thero was given to her a boy, beautiful oi an angel, and with his father's
eyes,
"When Hubert took his first-born
in liis arms, his whole inner being was
stirred within him, and a flood of
tenderness rose up in his heart for his
boy. He forgot it was Harriette's and
Dot Amy's child, he forgot tlio cruel
taunts and sneers, tho old miserable
life, as he wept and prayed ovor his
treasure. Long liours ho watched
silently by the cot of the wondrous
boy; stroking the crumpled fingers,
and gazing on the innocent baby faco
•—but alas for bim, Heaven had not
ordained that this should bo the 'son
of his consolation.1 One night when
the drowsy nurao slept, Harriette rose
up nnd strangled her child."
"Oh, Herwald, Herwald!" 1 half
screamed, "how horrible!''
"They know thon that tho girl
was mad—would they had discovered
it before! and as soon as they could
move her, they took her to the Col-
* cheater asylum, and thero sho has been
ever since.
"When this terrible event was bruited abroad, Hubert fled, a curate did
his work, and he never again showed
his face in Grantham pariah.
"When he returned from his wanderings, he oxchanged his living for
one half its value, whero he is now; and
here ho livos and works and preaches,
carrying day by day tho cross that has
eaton so deeply into his flesh. Here
he resides iu his dull old parsonage-
house, half of which ia shut up,
patiently enduring lifo; time has
wrought some good, but the melancholy is deep-rooted, and never, I fear,
to be wholly effaced; at least while
Harriette inhabits her dreary prison.
You can hardly road this tragedy in
the proud weary face, but at least you
can understand the lifeless delivery,
tho crushed broken heart."
"And what of Lady Percy,"
"I saw her once somo time ago; they
live some eighteen miles from here, in
a place Sir Ralph has recently bought;
but I assure you, that iu the haggard
sickly face I, scarcely recognized the
beautiful Amy Hubert described. Ah!
she sowed tho wind to reap the whirlwind. Sir Ralph If a hard, stern
husband to her, not cruel in actual
ill-usage, but prodigal of coarse sneers
and contemptuous language, which
most surely crush s woman's heart.
"That she is childless does not mend
matters, for Sir Ralph ardently desires an heir; and so Bhe drags on a
weary existence, an unloved, unhon-
orcd wife. Hubert knows this, and it
forms no slight portion of his daily
trial. Tell me, Nellie, do you not
mty the man?"
"I do, I do, Herwald, with all my
heart and soul; but oh, not eron this
can excuse him from appearing to be
what) he is not." '
"1 have often told him that it might
lead to wrong, but I nover thought of
anything like tbis; and he could not
bear his miserable story to transpire.
Oh, Kollio, what shall wo do?"
"Only one thing; I must go to-mcr-
- V-1"' Wfttn Mi-'*y» somehow,"
_J?1o*V* aaid Herwald, with a mix-
pn of surprise and admiration in his
„4one.
"Yes, there is no one elso, only a
woman can break ft gently enough;
bot I would go a hundred miles rather
than hare to do it, poor unconscious
MUbf.-
"You have a brave, tender heart,
Nellie.; you are a true woman. Go
on your sad errand, and Heaven be
with yuu. I see ft now, sho does like
him; oh, why wu I so blind? What,
what wil! Arthur say?"
"Oh, what indeed, Herwaldl yuu
muat wpoetulate with Mr. Olive; he
cannot be ■afored to go there day
after day; we must spare tbe dear
child."
"I—I shall not have the courage,
Nellie."
"Yon must—but hush, here comes
Dudley. I will ride over before lunch,
remember.   Herwald, good-night"
Herwald's hand was quite trembling and cold as it touched mine, and
my own was no better, and short and
restless was the sleep of both of us
that night.
******
The great park lay shimmering and
sparkling in tho morning sun. Only
the faintest of breezes stirred the old
tree tops, eliciting rustling whispers
in return; millions of dew-drops still
rung thoir noiseless silver bells; the
insect world was astir, and tho air
jubilant with bird choruses. Slowly
from between the beech-trees came
tbo meek-faced does to crop their
dainty herbage, nud look around them
with Bhy bright oyes; while their
fawns cambled in tho dell-like hollows
and round the noas-pfltched trunks,
and up and down the slanting sunny
glades. All was %ht, gladness, and
perfume, morning joy ond morning
broozefi: yet, 0 Divine Giver of Good,
Thou alone canst tell what thia day
shall bring forth to me nnd all of us.
A gloomy night-vialon is clinging
round mo, a feverish rostlessness from
Inst night's talk and reaolution, and
through it all an old refrain is haunting mo with its quaint rhythm and
swuet expression of hope—
" Bo the day weary, bo the day loug,
Presently rlngetin to evensong;"
and as I slowly repeat it, I havo a
strango longing for this day to be oyer
and gone, and then I stretch out my
face to the cool morning air with tho
weary gasping of ono to whom night
has been a long misery and unrest.
Suddenly the stillness is invaded, the
does timidly retreat to sylvan fastnesses, quick footsteps brush.the dew
and crisp the few early fallen leaves,
and then I see Allan's stalwart form
and bronzed beard as he strides rapidly
down one of the broad glades, the
tawny muzzled hounds following him
with drooping head.
' Presently one stops, listens and
utters an uneasy whine, which ends
in Leo's well-known -muffled bark;
Max chimes in lustily, and ns if in
obedience to a distant whistle, they
make back to the house. Allan stops
too, and leans with folded arms against
a tree; and I know it is the master
long before I see him cross the park
with his erect young head and careless
springy step, then pause with cheery
greeting at Allan's side. I watch
them disappear, and, then rousing
myself from my lazy reverie, hasten
my toilette, and after half an hour's
quiet, go down to the chintz parlor.
I found Herwald sitting at 'ho breakfast-table opening letters and cutting
the newspapers, whilo talking to Dudley. The morning stroll had not
given him his usual .color, and his
whole manner was flurried and uneasy.
"I have ordered the horses at half
past ten; is that right, Nellie?"
"Yes, quite"—and then I lean over
my plate with a sudden sickness of
heart.
"Where do we ride?" asks Dudley,
looking up from his Frater wonder-
ingly.
"Oh, to tho farm,—I have another
hour's business there; but I have
promised to drop Nellie at Rose Cottage on our way."
"I shall not let her ride at nll, unless she eat some breakfast," replied
Dudley. "Whore is your-appetite?
have you not slept well, you little
white mouse?"
Herrfald looked across at me with
an uneasy smile, and I answered nervously; for I had a feeling that Dudley's quiot eyes were scanning our
faces, and hod found out that all was
not right; nothing was said however,
and ns soon as I dared I ran out of the
room to don my riding-habit.
As Herwald mounted me ho whispered "Courage, Nell; it may all be a
mistake;" but I shook my head
mournfully as I stroked Larkspur's
glossy mano; some instinct warned me
to the contrary.
Such a sweet bright morning for
our ride, suoh fresh breezes rippling
our hair, such sun-flecked fields and
tender cloud-screttned skies. The
horses danced and curveted along the
smooth white roads, nnd now and then
wo halted under the shade to notice
somo wondrous blending of tints in
the landscape, some picturesque nook,
somo fragments of natural beauty,
but through it all the old refrain
haunted me—
■' fie the day wean, be the day long,
Presently ringetb to evensong,"
till I grew quite dizzy and confused.
"Here we aro; take Miss Mortimer's
horse, William," and Herwald alighting lifts me off and sets open the little
gate that closes after with an uneasy
clang. I scarcely hear his whispered
"God speed you" as 1 walk up the
little pebbly path, so intently am I
looking at the green bowery porch and
opon door. The click of the gate
reached Miliy's ears, for she came running out, hor dimpled arras bare to
the elbow, and her trim figure disguised by a huge floury apron.
"Oh, you dear, good Nellie, to
oome so soon again; no, I dare not
touch you, I should soil your pretty
bluo habit; come in here and make
yourself comfortable, I'll be with you
as seon as over I have put the cakes in
the oven;" and clapping her littlo
hands ahe danced out of the room.
I neither sat down nor mado myself
comfortable, a dull pain at my heart
forbade that; the dread of what I had
to say, and how she would take it; so
I listlessly turned over one or two
books on the table, and then stood at
the window looking at Arthur's carefully trimmed flower-beds, and listening to the chirping little voice in the
back kitchen.
Presently sho returned, the hideous
bib-apron removed, all fresh and oteaii
in her crisp morning cambric and
jaunty bluo ribbons.
"You naughty child," sho said,
after smoothing my rumpled hair, and
made me rest in the easy-chair.
"Now you will stay with mo to-day,
won't you, dear? we shall be alone
till dinner-time, when Arthur will be
back; we shall have the grouse for
dinner and a mulberry pudding, and
Bridget shall make us some cream
sauce. Never mind your habit; what
does it matter! we will have a long
cozy day."
