Contemporary Opinions.
In the Intent Hen It lie 17 Handbook, subject "Athletics," by the
Hon. E. Lytteltou, we find the following excellent remarks on the duty
of chewing food : Tlio veriest dullard
who thinks for a moment on the
daily tusk entrusted to our digestive
niHchinery, how incessantly it recurs,
anil how serious are the issues involved in its fulfilment; and who
has, moreover, learned anything of
tho delicacy of 'these organs, and
their close relation to happiness, will
understand the need of lightening
that tusk us far as we can, and the
cruelty of any wunton incrduse of it,
Onr system asks for food well chewed and well lubricated, und we give
it dry nuggets Ht nipid ly-recur ring
nleals. * * * I could name a
dyspeptic, who travelled in search of
a cure all in vain, till a stranger told
lum so masticate his meat, and he
obtained instant relief. But there
is a better instance at hand than
any of these, Mr. Gladstone is a
man abut whose physical vigor there
can he no question. Men nre known
in troublous times to cavil at hia
statesmanship, bnt no one has anything to say about his digestion;
Tow us early as the yoar 1848 Mr.
Gladstone formulated to himself
rules for chewing food. Previously
to that, time he had always paid
greut attention to this requirement
of nature; but at that time he laid
down ns n rule for his children that
thirty-two bites should be given to
each mouthful of meat, and a somewhat lessor numbor to bread, tish,
etc. It is also known that to get
into a habit of following his example
is as easy as can be. A little attention paid to it for two days will ensure the duty being unconsciously
performed through life, with the
most beneficial results, Truly, history turns upon small causes! The
philosopher of future ages may busy
himself with pondering what the
course,of the world would have been
had the number heen twenty-two in-
stead of thirty-two.— Pall Mall Ga-
already taken Btock of Canada's resources is shown by the able paper
of Professor Seldon on British and
Oananian Agriculture. The Eastern
and maritime provinces, he forsees,
will become stock-raising and dairying countries, sooner or Inter, a
change which wilt be for the best.
As u wheat-growing country, ho reminds us, Canada may hefore long
find herself seriously handicapped
by the cheap labor of India. But if
Canada is to suffer seriously, what
will he the fate of English farming t
Seven bad English harvests, in the
pnst, would barely be compensated
by seven good harvests in tbe future.
of whioh there is uo guarantee. The
North-West, which Professor Seldon
regards as the future granary of
Canada, has abundance of fertile
soil, which can be purchased at the
cost of a year's rent of an average
English farm. The cheaper the carriage of grain can be made, the more
favorable will be the conditions of
the competition by which our grain
growers may be pressed. This is a
subject which a large number of our
distinguished visitors will, in a short
time, qualify'themselves to discuss
with Professor Seldon; and it is
well that he, as.a specialist, has ted
the way and laid down some of tite
conditions of the problems wliich
the settlement of the North-West
will nid in working out.—Tha Week.

Budding.
Among the disadvantages under
which literature labors iu this country there is one, which invceutl of
being a detriment, should be a help,
uud form a steppinjrstone to higher
things. This is (he daily press of
the country. It is iiot as newspapers
that they form the detriment to
good literature; the receipts from
subscriptions and advertisement must
regulate to a great extent the amount
expended on the collection of news:
but it is tliose pages of original matter, those studies in black nnd white
through magnifying glasses, the edi*
torial columns, that deserve a word
of censure. Black abuse and slander and fulsome adulation, spouted
out upon almost every prominent
character in the political or municipal arena—language thut used in
conversation would provoke and deserve a blow—is considered justifiable and perhaps gentlemanly liy the
political writer, and it is frequently
of a construction, grammatically
speaking, to justify tho application
of tho birch to its careless nnd illiterate author. Turn to the local paper.
The "acrid mud" of tho political editorial is not thero; but bud grammar and slang run a close race up
and down the columns of too many
of our newspapers. Iu defence of
all this, tlie editor will probably tell
ns that the people demand sensation,
slander and slang. Do they demand
tlie bid grammar ns well? Yot this
writer will nlso tell iw/lmt tlie press
is the educator of tlie people. It
must he a poor muster whose scholars choose their own studies. That
we have scholars and gentlemen on
the ptess of Canada is nu undoubted
fact, and their writings are read
with pleasure; hut the strong flavor
of a corrupt taste taints even some
of their productions at times, Daily
journalism, though not a high branch
of literature, is ft powerful one, and
should strive to be respectable.—
Harry Dane.
The members of the British Association havo been making good uso
of tlieir time since they arrived in
the country, and their future plans
afford a guarantee for their continued activity during their stay.
Before they take their departure,
there will bn no readily accessible
part of Canada which they will not
have visited. Somo have traversed
tho maritime provinces, and n large
number of them will come into
visual contact with the Rooky
Mountains: to reach the mountains
they will traverse au immense sp-tce
of prairio country, the capabilities of
which will be (o somo of them an
object of careful investigation. How

Budding iB n simpler operation than
grafting, uud can bo performed in August and tho first half of September,
when there is less work to be done
than in thu spring >t>f the yenr,
when grafting has to be done. It consists in introducing tho bud of one
treo, with n portion of tho bark nnd u
littlo adhering wood, beneath the burk
of anothor, and upon tho faco nf the
newly forming wood, It must be performed while the stock is iu a state of
vigorous growth. An incision is made
lengthwise through tho bark uf the
stock, and u small cut at right unglus
at the top, the whole somewhat resembling the lotter T. A bud is then
takon from a shoot of the previous
year's growth, by shaving off tho bark
an inch or an inch and a half iu length,
with a small part of tho wood directly
beneath the bud. TJie edges of the
bark, at tho incision of the stock, nre
then raised a littlo, and the bud pushed downwards undor the burk. A
bundage of boss, com husk, or other
substance is wrapped around, covering
nil parts but the bud. Tho pressure
ahould bo just snflicient to keep the
inserted portion closely to the stock,
but not such ns to bruise ov ci iia'h the
bark. The shoots containing the buds
should be cut whon so nmturu us to bo
rather firm und hard in texture; thoy
Aro usually in the best condition afier
tho terminal bud is formed.
To prevent withering the leaves
must be immediately cut off, as they
withdraw aud exhale rapidly tho moisture from tho shoot; about ouo-quarter
of an inch of the footstalks of the
leaves should remain to serve as handles to tho buds while inserting them.
After boing thus divested of leaves,
they may be safely kept u week in n
cool, damp placo, or sent hundreds of
miles in damp moss, or encased separately in thin oilcloth. When, by
growth, the bandage cuts into tho
stock, usually in ten days to three
weoks, it must be removed. The bud
remains dormant till the following
spring, when the Btock is cut uff two
inches or more above it. If out closer
the und of the atock becomes tno dry,
und the bud often perishes. AU othor
buds must bo then removed, and all
the vigor of the stock or branch thrown
into tho remaining bud, which immediately commences a rapid growth.
To secure n straight nnd erect growth
the new shoot, when a few inches
long, is tied to tho remaining stump of
the stock. By another month no furthor support will bo needed, and tho
stump may bo wholly cut away and
the wound allowed to heal by tho rapid formation of now wood.
Buds inserted by midsummer may
bo made to grow tho samo boiisuii by
heading down tho stock when adhesion
has taken placo; but although often
attempted, no udvaiitugo hns resulted
from this practice, us the growth is
comparatively feoblo, and in oonau*
quenco of its badly matured wood often
perishes tho following winter. Even
Whore it escapes it dues not exceed iu
size at the closo of the second season
thu straight und vigorous shoots of the
spring.
Tho essential requisites for success
in budding aro:—-First, a thrifty,
pidly-grnwing stook so that tho built
will peel very freely. Secondly, a
proper timo; not too early when thoro
is little cambium or mucilaginous cement betwooii thu bark and tho wood
fnr the adhesion of thu bud; nur too
late whon tho bark will not peel freely,
nor the subsequent growth aiifllciently
cement tho bud to the stock. Thirdly,
buds sufficiently mature. Fourthly, n
keen, tint knife for shaving off tho
bud, that it may lio cIubo in contact
upon the wood of tlio stock. Fifthly,
the application of a ligature with
moderate pressure, causing tho bud to
At the stock closely.
Various modifications havo houn proposed for tho improvement of budding.
One is to mako. the cross cut st thu
bottom of tho long slit instead of at
the tap, aa the latter is supposed tu
impede tlio descent of nourishment.
Another is, to raiao the bark nil on
one side of tlio slit, making a small
notch in its edgo for tho hud, this
mode being supposed to avoid tho hud
cimsequoiices of the mutilation uf the
wood by the knife. But those modes
are both inconvenient and nre found
to possess no advantage in practice,
the supposed evils they are intended
to obviate being too small to take into
account. Making a square cut from
the upper end nf tho bark of thu inserted hud, ao that it may fit in close
contact with tho bark of the stock nt
the horizontal incision to receive the
returning snp, though strongly recommended, has boon found of no utility
in practice, ns the union lakes place
wholly botweon the two faces in enn-
tact.—-American Cultivator,

The Through Trade.
Tlie Victoria Colonist thinks the
notions which some people entertain
respecting the large Asiatic trade
that will go by the C. P. R. are not
at all wan-anted. It thinks, also,
that Van Home's utterances on
that' point are decidedly Utopian.
We agree with our contemporary on
both these points. On more than
ouo occasion Tim Columbian has
inferred to tho absurd stories of
fabulous trade wliich some peoplo
expected to seo springing up on the
completion of the 0. P. R. We
have pointed out that the foreign
trade must of necessity be limited,
and tbat the true policy of tlie railway company is to encourage the
settlement and development of the
country thiotigh wliich tlio rond
pisses. It is local trade, ami not
foreign trade, that will make the
road n success financially. And it
is in view of this fact that we regret
the hurried manner in which the
railway has been constructed, and
tlio employment of Ohinese. Millions of dollars liavo been expended
on railway construction iu British
Columbia, and when construction
ceases the country will find itself
very littlo better off. A great part
of the money goes into the hands of
Chinamen, and docs the country no
good whatever. Of the rest most
goes to the United States for supplies which the contractor imports
himself. If Chinese labor had been
excluded, and if railway construction had been carried on with less
haste and greater judgment, all along
the route new settlements would
bave been springing up, and the
seeds for future traffic would have
been sown and developed, The industries of the province, too, would
have beeu stimulated and placed on
a basis of permanent prosperity. As
it is, the benefit of railway construction upou our local industries is
very small und uncertain. The demand made upon them was too sudden and too largo; and when tlieir
capacity was found to be insufficient
the orders were at onco sent elsewhere. We are of opinion that the
syndicate will come to find that a
great mistake has bean committed,
nnd that it would have paid to show
some consideration for the progress
of the province and its institutions
while the work of construction was
going on. We are afraid the traffic
of the road may be much less than
some people imagine.
Resident Judge.
On Thursday the county court
was  held   at Chilliwhack.     This
court  should   have   been held on
Wednesday, the 10th inst., but instead of placing it on Wednesday,
when the steamer goes up, it was
put down  for Thursday, the 11th
inst.   Then it was discovered that
Thursday had beeu fixed for holding court in thia city; and ns not
more than one judge could hespnred
out   of  Viotorin, aud   one judge
could  not occupy two places at the
same time, the Chilliwhack court
was postponed until the 18th inst.
The judge arrived at this city on
Wednesday, and found, of course,
that there was no steamer going to
Chilliwhack until Saturday.   There
lay before hiin the choice of taking
the railway to Harrison River on
Thursday   morning,   and  reaching
Chilliwhack   by   canoe   from   that
point, or of hiring a conveyance to
drive him up the Yale road, a distance  of  about 40   miles.      But
neither of these possible means of
reaching Chilliwhack was adopted.
The learned judge, wo suppose, did
not care to risk his precious life on
tho railway, and did not fancy a
40-mile drive over such roads as we
bave  on the mainland of British
Columbia.    He hired a steamboat
to  take  him to  Chilliwhack and
being  him back  when court was
overl   There is nothing mean about
our supreme court judges when it
comes to travelling expenses, for the
Dominion government must foot the
bill.   We do not find fault with the
judge;  indeed   we must commend
the aolicitado for tbo fulfilment of
hit engagement whioh this implies.
But ik doea seem to us the federal
government  might   have arranged
these court matters in such a way
es to prevent so many Borious die*
appointments  md  such  enormous
expenees.   A few days ago we intimated that possibly the attorney-
ney-general of this province might
hare been responsible for sending
Judge McCreight to Cariboo while
thii district  was  lefC  without a
judge of iny kind,    We aro ad-
viNd that 1'iiH is nol the oaee-tbat
tbe attorney-general has nothing
whatever to do with arranging tho
judges on their circuits. Then, we
submit, the attorney-genoral should
have protested against the arrangement, which he did not do, according to the telegram of the minister
of justice. But the attorney-general is now on Iub wny to Ottawa,
and wo hope he will not forget this
matter on his arrival at tlie Canadian capital. Tho present system
of administering justice in this province is a fraud and a delusion, and
it must bo costing the federal government a very considerable sum
beyond reasonable valuo for tbe
service rendered, We look upon
tlie attorney-general's visit as extremely opportune, and we shall be
watching for some beneficial results
to come to us shortly. Nothing
will satisfy the legal wants of this
district but a judge residing permanently in this city.
Strange Suggestions.
In tlie absence of anything more
sensible upon which to write, the
Victoria Slandanlhas been suggesting that thu local government should
compensate speculators who hnve
lost money nt Port Moody. This
suggestion is mado upon the ground
that it is through the influence of
the local government that tho syndicate decided to take the road
down to Coal Harbor. But the
Standard winds up by saying, "We
have all along stated that no tor-
minus hud ever been established on
Burrard Inlet anywhere." If no
terminus had been established, it
seems to us the question of compensation is somewhat premature.
Indeed, It could not in any case bo
entertained. If the Dominion government fixed the terminus at one
point, and the syndicate decided to
carry it elsewhere, how can the
provincial government be held
liable for tbo loss of speculators?
In the Victoria Times a person
signing himself "Bluenose," and
hailing from. Portland, writes a
long letter in which both the Dominion and provincial governments
are severely censured for deceiving
the people with respect to the terminus. We do not believe the
charge lies against either. The
location of the terminus ut Port
Moody was probably a bona fide
location. The Domiuion government did not intend to go beyond
tlmt point, aud it does not intend
to go beyond it now. But when
the road comes into the hands of
tho syndicate, the Dominion government cannot stop it at any point-
it will go whero tho interests of
trade require. The only person in
the Dominion government, so far as
we know, who can fairly be charged
with deceiving tho public in tbis
matter, is Sir Chas. Tupper—-and
there are not many who could be
deceived by his utterances. The
local government has deceived no
one about the terminus. Indeed it
had no opprtunity to do bo because
it had nothing to do with it until a
few months ago, Bluenose is very
angry, however, and intimates that
if tbe terminus is really changed he
and other American citizens who
have invested in Port Moody wilt
demand compensation. It is possible, therefore, that the demand
may bo bucked up hy tbo United
States navy, and that both Port
Moody and Coal Harbor may full
into tho hands of Brother Jonathan
in the fight, Speaking of compensation the 2Y»uf says: "It will bo
soon enough to discuss such a piopo-
sition when the change has really
been made. The suggestion to
recompense investors who have held
tlieir property, in many cases, at
several hundred per cent over cost
prices, though fair prices, in many
cases, have been offered, is about as
foolish and unheard of n proposal
as ever emanated from any addled
brain. Howover, when tbo source
is considered it is not a matter of
much wonderment." The head of
the Times man is about level.

Thee Lice.—A correspondent of tho
Seattle Post Bays: "After trying in
vain various so-called remedies to dislodge thy destructive aphis from my
fruit trees, I bought a lot of the meanest, filthiest, stinkingest, strongest tobacco I could find, put a lot of it iu
scalding water and let it steep until it
was fearful stuff. Then I took a brush
and rubbed down Mr. Aphides. Result: Iu a littlo while they all let go
and foil off. They evidently hadn't
learned to chew the filthy stuff. I
would muoh liko to havo some one
else try tho experiment und report the
result. It has not injured the trees iu
the least, so far as I nave triod it."

Chai'leau'h Opinion.—The Ottawa
Sun of Sept. 8th says:—''Referring
to his recent official trip to British
Oolumbia, Hon. Mr. Chapleau status
that he enjoys tho opinion with Mr,
Van Horno thai up to tho present
timo the Chineso havo been an absolute necessity for developing the industries of the country, They mako
exceptional domestic servants and,
but for thom, Mr. Chapleau tliiims,
tho luxury could not be indulged in.
Ho estimates the Chinese population
of the province at from twelve to
thirteen thousand. They earn from
twenty to thirty dollars a mouth, with
their board. He considers them, as
far as the investigations of the commission go, quiet and law-abiding
citizens,"

War Vessels.—As a maritime power
Groat Britain still holds the first place
with her armored fleet; France second;
Germany the third; Italy tho fourth;
Russia the fifth, and Austria the sixth.
But tho presont moment Franco is
building fourteen vessoJB of the most
powerful model, and eight armored
vessels for coast defence. Therefore,
in four years France will have thirty
war vessols, twelve of which are of the
first-class, and England thirty-two,
only ono of which will be of the samo
strength as any one of the twelve
French ships. Italy is now building
five first-class war vessels, Russia
three, and three ironclad cruisers;
Germany one ironclad cruiser and two
gunboats; Austria one war vessel, and
Denmark ono ironclad for coast defence.

Osooyoh.—Mr. H. N. Nicholson,
from Osooyos reports excellent crops

every description is doing well. Chinese gold minors near Allison's who
are working in Semilknmeon rivor report large gains. Some of the companies nre putting in extensive wing-

Thore are about 175 Chinese mining

which so much was oxpocted last fall

Tub Umatula. — Agreeably to a
private arrangement, Messrs. R. Duns*
muir & Sou's attachment claim for
950,000 upon the stoamer Umatilla
has been withdrawn, but in its place
ony for $10,000 has been lodged against
the vessel by tho McAlmond Bros., of
Port Townsend. Capt. Chisholm, to '
prevent delay in the departure of tho
steamer Umatilla, has given bonds for
the amount. The nature of the claim- I
ants' demand is that part uf the crow
of their schooner Champion boarded
tho steamship Umatilla at the request
of those in command and staid by her
until she was picked up and towed into
Esquimalt by the Wellington, Unless
the claim bo abandoned,it will be tried

made, will lmvo to bo carried direct to
tho Privy Counoil in England.—Victoria Post.

Just Like Him.—Having challenged
tho editor of the Port Moody Gazette
to bring forward proof of his assertion
that tlio provinoial secretary wrote a
late article iu The Columbian, the
Gazette backs down and declines. But
ho doos not oven retire gracefully, for
ho asserts that tho proof of tho authorship of the article in question was contained in the articlo itself! Further
ho intimates that somo employee iu
The Columbian oflico has told outside
that the manuscript of tho article was
in the provinoial secretary's writing.
Tho insinuation is precisely in keoping
with whnt wo supposed to bo tho mural
principle of the Gazette. It is very
contemptible, but nut very surprising.
No employee of this oflico could possibly have mado nny such statement,
because the attiolo, as wo have already
said, was wholly written by the responsible editor, nnd iu this, oaiey. \v„
aro sorry the Gazette could 'bo far forgot the honor of tlio profession to
which it unfortunately belongs.

Moodyville, Sept. 18.—The weather,
having brigh*efle<i up the last two days,
has had its cheering effect on the inhabitants of Moodyville. Last evening about
seventy guests were entertained on board
the ship "Sir Jamsetjce Family," by
Captain and Mrs. Thompson, Between
docks was most beautifully decorated
witli flags, inottos, and evergreens for
dancing, and all did their best to enjoy
themselves and ho8t."*"*Tlie supper, which
was elegant, was laid iu the splendid dining saloon, to which people' 'were seated
at the first table, alter which dancing
was kept up until two o'clock in tlio
morning. To-day, being the Independence Day of Chili, the Chilian bark "An-
Bouia" Ib gaily decorated with flags and
all the other ships the same, out of compliment to Capt. Johaiiflon." Ten days
ago a number of ladies and gentlemen
visited the logging camp near the Indian
Mission, many of them being captains
from Australia, who wished to see the
timber woods of this country. The party
landed at the camp, and -returned riding
on the logs, drawn by ten mules. The
scene would havo made an artistic sketch.
An Outside Opinion.-*-Mr.
braith, editor und propria!-r uf the
Manitoba Mountaineer newspaper, who
spout lost winter in Now Westminster
for the benefit uf his health, iu reference to tho proposed Patilic terminus of tho Canadian Pacific Railroad,
says: The decision of tho OP, 11. tu
change tho tortninus to Coal Harbor Ib
undoubtedly a good ono, bttli in tho
interest of thu general puliic and of
tho company. The several miles of
town lots nt Port Moody is'nothiug
more ur less tlinu a mountainside, on
the greater part uf which, iu lie winter time, the sun never shines, hid the
heavy incline of which woull bo a
serious objection, if not tin elcctuul
bar, to the growth uf any coiisitLrablu
town; besides, tho urea of wiser at
Port Moody is contracted, andWevy

Harbor, on the other linnd, is auom-

A CASE WHERE KILLING WAS .JUSTIFIABLE.
Fur n lung time past thu Metchoain
stock raisers havo lost sheep and otlior
small stoek. The thefts were always
attributed to panthers, which are numerous iu thy thick forests of the district. But a tragic development uu
Saturday proved that the suspicion
was nut altogether well founded. Some
time ago a stranger arrived in the district and pre-empted a small sectiou in
the thickest part of the forest, where
he afterwards remained secluded as if
anxious to avoid public notice, The
neighbors saw him on several occasions, but were never able to get within speaking distance of him, fur the
moment he saw that, he was observed
he plunged into the thicket and disappeared from view. The losses of
small Btock continuing, on Saturday
Mr. John Parker, of Rocky Point, accompanied by n hired man, started
out resolved to fathom tho mystery.
Suspecting that his new neighbor
knew moro of the matter than he cared
to have people informed about Parker
resolved to interview him before proceeding further, bo entering thy forest
ho directed his steps towards the
strange person's abode. Ho had uot
gone far when ho heard a noise as of
some enraged individual nnathemiziug
loudly in an unknown tongue, and
peering thruugh the brush the intruders saw the stranger approaching rapidly. He was armed to the teeth—a
perfect arsenal, iu fact—and made directly fur the intruders. Mr. Parker
took aim with his riflo, which was
Iuaded with buckshot and ball. Fur a
moment he hesitated to fire, fearing
the consequences, hut seeing that the
fellow was closing the gap betweon
thom with rapidity and that ho was
getting ready to use his weapons with
deadly purpose, Mr. Parker reluctantly fired. The stranger reeled, uttered a fearful cry, and rolled over
dead! Ho was shot through and
through, tho head. After death his
name was discovered to be A. Bruin,
a native of the island, who had boen
driven out of Sooke by his indignant
neighbors some months ago. He is
behoved to leave n fumily in Sooke.
The body waa brought to town yesterday, but Superintendent Roycroft declining to hold an inquest, the remains
were turned uver to Mr. John Parker, j
and by him weru exhibited yesterday.
All persons loud of goud fat bear meat
should leave their orders with Mr.

our facilities, and besides, the product
of tho fisheries and the mines will
supply an important freight.
Is the wurk thruugh the mountains
as diflicult as was anticipated 'I
So fur from thut more recunt surveys and thy butter knowledge of Ihe
country thereby obtained havo shown
the work tu present absolutely nu difficulty, and the road will be constructed
for more than four million dollars less
than the estimate uf cost made last
session, Thore is a good deal of tunnelling, but not much uf a formidable
character. The longest tunnel is that
of Lake Kamloops, which exteiids
some 800 feet. Starting from tho eastern slope the road passes west through
the mountains, through the Kicking
Horse Pass, the Rogers Pass, nnd the
Eagle Pass, coming uut ut Lake Kam*
loopB. The tunnelling is not nearly so
heavy or extensive as ou the Northern
Pacific road, two or three tunnels on
which invulvod as much work and extend as fnr as all the tunnels on tbe
Canadian Pacific put together. Fully
two-thirds of the mountain wurk may
be described as of easy character, more
so thau that north uf Lake Superior,
90 miles uf the railway on the latter
section ousting mure to build than the
wholo Reeky Mountain section. The
heaviest work we encounter is fur a
distance of 70 milea west of Sudbury
Junction, and uu the west slopo uf the
Rockies, and buth these sections will
be finished this month. On the Lake
Superior portion the tunnels have
all been completed but one, and the
heavy work may be considered as oo*
cumplished.
. When du you expect tu open th*
road throughout? t ,
1 aeo nothing tu prevent the comple
tion uf tho whole railway from Calendar to the Pacific Ocean by Septembei
1st, 1885, just une year hence. The
government sections in British Columbia, being built by Ondordonk &, Co.,
aro well advanced, und will be ready
by July lst next. The work has been
well dune, and is of a substantial and
high class character. Beyond Stephen,
tho summit of the Rockies, 28 miles
are now graded, and the rails will
shortly be laid.

The Provincial Exhibition.
Editoh Columbian.—Two or three
copies of the British Columbli Agricultural Association pamphlet have been
sent to this city within the wee'e just
ended, and with the exception of a small
notice in the papers, this is ahout all
that the public or mainland members
know of the Exhibition to be held next
eek.   '
It Is also to be noted that the resolutions and amendments to the constitution, so heartily aud unanimously adopted at the last two annual general meetings have been completely ignored, and
that the very objectionable feature (at
an agricultural snow) of horse-racing
has again beeu added. The rule admitting members to exhibit in all classes
without an extra charge ahould, atoll
events, lave been strictly carried out.
It seems to me that deliberately ignoring
amendments to the constitution and resolutions legally passed by- tha annual
meeting of the association, and failing to
Sroperly advertise tlio premium list will
o much to take from the exhibition of
next week that amount of success and
good work which should characterize it
as a provincial association exhibition.

A Detective's Shrewd Device.
A Canton, Miss., despatch says:
Numerous attempts have been made
during the past six months to wreck
the trains of tho Illinois Central Railroad near Duck Hill, seventy-six miles
north of this point. One of the wreckers named Cooman was arrested and
lodged in jail six weeks ago. Since
then a stranger was arrested and placed
in the same cell with tbe wrecker. The
two became intimate, and the wrecker
made a confident of the stranger, confessing what he had done and telling
who his confederates wore. YeBterday
the stnttiger—who turned out to be a
Chicago detective—waB released, and
two whito men and'two negroes were
arrested as the accomplices of the man
in jail,	
Mistaken Identity.
London, Supt. 4.—Mr. Hawkes, an
author well known in Liverpool, bears
a striking resemblance to the Duke of
Edinburgh, who is now crusing iu the
Irish channel. Mr. Hawkes, a few
nights ago, entered a theatre at Cork
and appeared in a prominent bus. The
audience, believing they were honored
by an unexpected visit frum the Duko,
arose and cheered. Mr, Hawkes, who
Lis a man of inimitable self possession,
'at once took in the situation, Instead
uf retreating, he accepted the greeting,
and bowed his thanks with all the grace
and dignity uf royalty. The manager
was so amazed at the attempt to personate the Duke that he seized tho collar
of Mr. Hawkes and forced him from
the theatre. The following day Mr.
Hawkes summoned the manager before a magistrate fur assault and battery. Mr. Hawkes swore that he had
given nu excuse for thu violence with
which he had been treated. The audience cheered and he bowed, that wns
al). The magistrate fined the inuuager
ten shillings fur the assault.
Tho Montreal Gazette of Sept. 5th,
states that Mr. Van Home, vice-president and general manager of thu Canadian Pacilio Railway, in conversation
with a representative of thu Gazette un
the subject of his recent visit tu British Columbia and inspection uf the
line of railway through the Rocky
Mountains, imparted some interest ing
information ns to the progresa of tha
wurk. Mr. Van Horno spoke enthusiastically uf the resources of thu Pacific province, thu favorablo character of
the route obtained through the mountains, and the sources of traffic available in tlmt section, Tho result of Iuh
visit had been, he remarked, to pluce
beyond doubt tho assurance uf a profitable trade along the whole line of ruil
way from the outset, the only uncertainty entertained previously having
been ns to the nature aud extent of
Iho traffic derivable from British Columbia. No terminus has yet been
definitely located un the Pacific coast
Thero is almost an embarass ties riches
in this respect, au many excellent harbors being available, and on this score
no want will be felt. Tho company
will upon the completion uf the railway enter at once upon competition
for thu through trade from China and
Japan tu the Eastern Status aud Great
Britain, fur that purpose either placing
a line of steamers upon the route from
British Columbia tu Asia, or ontoring
upon t initio arrangements with steamers now iu this trade.
What ure the prospects fur traffic in
British Columbia? Mr. Van Horno
was asked.
Wb will obtain a very large traffic
from the outset. Lumber alone will

The Printers' Protest.
Editor Columbian.—In tbe last issue
of tii-; Port Moody Gazette, the editor of
that sheet, in his anxiety to cover an
ignominious retreat from a certain posl*
tion taken in a discussion with Ths Columbian, oversteps the bounds of truth
and decency, and perpetrates a dastardly
and groundless li(e)bel on the employees
of the Biirnaii Columbian newspaper,
bv insinuating that they, or any of them,
did, or would for a hinted consideration,
divulge certain office secrets, whioh (even
the editor of the Gazette must know) the
slightest regard for honor or honesty
would demand should be kept inviolate.
We, the undersigned (representing the
entire staff employed in the British Columbian printing establishment), indignantly repudiate the charge conveyed fn
the insinuation, and challenge the editor
of the Gazette to produce name or names
of party or parties who furnished alleged
information; and we also desire to acid,
free, gratis, for the sole benefit of the
Gazette man, that the article in question
was iu the hand-writing of the ed tor of
Thk Columbian—Mr. D, Robson. This
statement we make voluntarily, and
without solicitation.
In future, let the young man who
'plays at editor" ou tho Port Moody
Gazette be a little more cautious and explicit in his personal insinuations, or, the
next thing he '-knows" he may suddenly
find himself dry-docked for repairs.

Surrey Council*
Council met on Saturday, Sept. 1,1, all
members present, thu reeve in the chair.
A number of communications were received, aud the following bills allowed:

The clerk wus instructed to notify J. K.

allow the clear navigation of said stream.
Work on Cuuu's road was given to J, W,

work for 90S, Messrs. Smith k (food's
tender for the steam ferry slip, 9700, was
uccepted, and the olerk was instruet.il
to notify the parties of tho fact. Capt.
Grant being present, the council asked
him to state his grievances in regard to

Grant said he had no objection to any
part uf the by-law except the last para-
Sraph of clause 8, requiring him to hon-
lu the froight. He said ne would not

sot down in the schedule. Coun. Shannon thou gave notioe that he would at
the next meeting of tho council introduce an nmomlment to tho ferry by-law
so hb to have it conform with that passed

cause and Effect.
Thy temperance question in Switzerland is tu the fnro ns iu other conn-
trios, only with theexceptiun thut the
evil results in the former land are
greater thau in many others. The
consumption of alcohol is larger in the
Helvetian republic than in auy other
land, and the cause lies apparently in
the fact that there is practically free
trade in liquor selling. Tho temperance reformers have appealed tu the
federal counoil to impose sume restrictions but the council steadily refuses.
Indeed, it seems to be under thu influence of the traffic and flaunts, as the
harlut does her gaudy colors, this official defence of the use of intoxicants
in the faco of the growing temperance
sentiment of the wurld:—"The practice of thu social drinking of spirituous
liquors brings a cheerful temper into
society; effaces the traces uf daily labor, openB the heart to other impressions, and is intimately associated
with thu development uf public life.
The publio house fosters intellectual
activity, and is a remedy against mis*
aiithmpy, egotism, vanity, narrowness
of ideas and extravagance of imagination." Ib it nny wonder that nn official report liko this should take the
world by surprise. In the little republic named, 930,000,000 aro annually
paid for intoxicating liquors. From
an economic point of view, what an
enormous waste uf money. Thirty
millions uf dollars annually expended,
and nothing to show fur it. No reproductive public worka, no healthier
cities, no improved highway communication, and no general elevation uf
the moral condition of the people iu
consequence thereof. Nothing to show
for it did we say? There is much to
show for it. The consumption of
brandy has incroased so enormously
in Switzerland that the increased misery and want is burdening many of the
cantons and insanity is making wide-.
spread advances. Brandy, like port
wine, is an insidious brain-destroyer. I
The latter is less rapid than the former
in its work but it surely accomplishes

British Association.
Captain Pirn, of the Britiah Scientific Association, claims credit for
bringing that body to Montreal this
year. On his return to Winnipeg frum
a trip tu the Rockies he said; "It is
impossible to express the interest which
une and all have taken in the journey.
It oaused the wholo parry sorrow nt
leaving thu picturesque Rockies, which
will, undoubtedly, within a 'measurable distance' of time, become the resort of many a tourist from the uid

Moltke the Silent.
Moltke the Silent—der Schwelger—
as he is called, is generally considered
the greatest, and is certainly tho most
successful, of living soldiers. His
achievements at Kuniggrutz, Sedan,
and Paris have never been surpassed,
and compel the admiration of all competent military critics. Silent, quiet,
cold, the very incarnation of concentrated thought, juat as yuu aee him
walking in the streets or moving in a
drawing-room, when everybody stands
respectfully aside to let him pass—so
he stoud ou tho battlefield; his cold,
otoar eye passing slowly frum one
point to the other, and his cold, clear
mind weighing the chances uf victory
and defeat, with tho intensity nud serenity uf a mathematician pondering
over the solution uf sume great problem. No one, it is said, has evor seon
Count Moltke excited, nut even ut Sedan, where the greatest victory of modern times decided the fortunes uf the
two most powerful empires on the continent. Bis calmness seems mysterious, almost uwful, and there is something strangely sad about thut silent,
lonely uid mail. His wife died some
yean ngu ; she never had a child. His
nearest relations, with the exception of
a nephew and a neice, seem to do kept
ut a distance by him. Who ure his
companions and his friends? Tu whom
does he ever talk in a friendly, familiar way? Nobody has ever been
able to tell me, ult hough I have often
inquired. Au old man uf 84, he still
appears wherever duty calls him. He
is to be seen at almost all the Emperor's
receptions, the most striking persons^
near tho throne. How thu old field
marshal passes his time when he is free
from duty—when tired uf wurk ? Nobody pretends to know. Either nobody
penetrates into liis intimacy, or else
those whu approach him intimately
do nut speak about it. When the weather is line yuu may soe a very tall,
thin man, with very light, yellowish
hair, and a sallow, beardless, wrinkled
face, out of which shine a pair of stony
gray eyes; wrapped in a long, dark,
military cuat, u cap ou his small head,
faultlessly dressed in a general's uniform- a gentleman born in every inch
uf his aristocratic, slender figure, his
body still erect, but his head as in deep
thought, slightly bout forward—such a
man, I say, yuu may see coming uut
uf the great, red building, wliich stands
ou the Koenigs Plata, at thu corner uf
Moltke and Bismarck streets,and which
bears the name uf "(Jeueral Stab." The
solitary old man, unattended by a servant, walks slowly, nnislcssly. Everyone who ments lum looks ut him attentively ; if the passer-by is a soldier bo
stands oue Bide and then salutes. The
uid general returns the salute slowly
and deliberately, but apparently without seeing tu whom. Every time I seo
him the thought occurs tu me that in
such guise Dante must have passed
through the streets of Florence. That
is General Field Marshal Count Hull-
inuth von Moltke, ono of the strangest
characters ever produced. It is welt

Has Fitanuikco, Sept. 14.—The steamer
San Pablo arrived this evening with
Hong Kong dates of Aug. 14, and Yokohama of the SOth. Advices state that
intelligence has reached Canton of fearful inundations in Kbtsns Sai province.
The news is dated from King Jak, chief
centre of the pottery manufacture, and
oue of the four great markets of the
empire. The floods lasted four days,
ana submerged an immense section of
country to the depth of sixty feet.
Whole towns were swept away, and
from 70,000 to 80,000 people perished.
From the great number of dead bodies
exposed to the heat after the waters re*
ceded it was feared a pestilence would
break out. It was announced that cool,

been declared an infected port. It is
stated that the price realised by the

company for their fleet of twenty-six
vessels, and, as announced, to an Amorican company, is 5,2.50,000 taels, equal to
about 90,500,000.
New York, Sept. 15.—Henry Villard
boa published in pamphlet form a state-
.ment to the Northern Pacific stockholders reviewing his tabors in behalf of
the company and hi justification of his
career, Hu shows now the engineers
enormously underestimated the cost of
construction, and that the refusal of the
president to act upon the application of
the company for tho appointment of
commissioners to Inspect additional finished mileage in ISSi! caiise-l the luniks
to refnse to udvanco any more money,
nnd this refusal shut all othor doors
against them Describing this situation,
\ ill ard says: "Thus I was actually
brought face to face in February, 1882,
with the necessity, at no distant date,
of a suspension of payments with all its
calamitous consequences, bankruptcy
aiul forecloiurc, unless relief could he
obtained from somo quarter. I considered it my duty to extend to the company
personally all the assistance En my [lower. Next I arranged with the Oregon
Transcnut netital company to assist by
the loan of its cret^ and of its assets, to
lie used as collaterals by your t ompany,
I commenced to moke cash advances on
my jwrsoual account on April 14th, ami
continued them until August *JSth, when
t;.ey reached the maximum amount of
$3,441,000. I lent this groat sum without any security whatever, and at the
risk of personal ruin, In view of the
foul calumnies spread about my management I claim it as my privilege to give
due prominence to this faot, uor will it
bo improper, iu viow of the attitude recently assumed toward me by certain
members of yonr board of directors, to
say that my record iu this respect wilt
suffer nothing in comparison with tho
terms on which they loaned money to
the company." Here follows a long array of figures showing how the engineers' lost estimate was 50 ye cent under tbe actual cost, which Villard says
is "the true key to, and tho sole .caus-i
of, your and mv disappointments, and
the reverses that have overtaken the
Oregon k Transcontinental company and
me personally. I strove constantly as
president to uo my whole duty to you
conscientiously and to the best of my
ability, I did this at the expenso of my
health, of my pence of mind, nml of my

A REMARKABLE STORY,
Captain Morgan mado no roply.
What ho said was:
"I should like to interest you iu
Catherine, my dear; all that happened,
you know, beforo we camo here, while
wo woro busy with our own life, my
wife and I; but I liavo put this and
that together since. Cathorino was,
as people say, crossed in lovo, notwithstanding her wealth and nil lior qualities. So fnr as I can make out, tho
man preferred a woman that could
not hold the candle to hor; not so
clever, altogether inferior. That muat
bo rather a Wow to a woman!"
"A blow! What Bort of a woman
would Bho bo that cured for a man who
did not care for her?"
This somotthat inarticulate sentiment Hester delivered with nn Indignant blush and flushing oyes.
"That is nll very fine, my dear, but
you aro too clear-headed to bo taken
in by it," said the captain. "A woman might not show it, perhaps. I
have uo reason to supposo that Catherine showed it. Uut you must ro-
member that a woman is not a woman
iu tho abstract, but Catherine or Hester, sis tho cose may be, and liable to
everything that humanity is liable to;
and she would bu a poor creature, indeed, if sho wore incapable of falling
in lovo generously, as a man is supposed to do."
"I don't know what ymi moan by
generously!"
"Ah, but you do; none botter.
Something, however, occurred after,
much worse than this preference of Ins
for another woman. The man turned
uut to be an unworthy man."
Hester had been following evory
word with breathless interest. She
grew quite pale, hor lips dropped
apart, her eyes blazed out of the whiteness of her face upon her old instructor. He went on without taking nolo
of this change:
"I should think for my part thero
cannot be any such blow us that. Don't
you remember we agreed it was the
seorut of all Hamlet's tragedy? It is
the tragedy of tho world, my dear.
I told tho old woman we were going
to talk of love and poetry. You see
I wns right."
"But-Cathorino?"
HeBtor was, as became a girl, far too
much interested in the individual case
to be able to stray to the abstract,
and, in fact, shu had only assented to
her mentor's theory in respect to Hamlet, not huving begun such investigations for herself.
"Ay, Catherine. Well, that is just
what happened to her, my dear. The
man first showed that lie hnd uo appreciation of horself, which we will allow
must have wounded her; and then,
after, when that was it.ll over, proved
himself unworthy, dishonorable: in
short, what the young men call a cad."
"Who was ho?" asked Hester, in a
low and awe-stricken tone.
Then Captain Morgan turned to
look at her, apparently with some
alarm; but his fears were quieted by
her face. She had, evidently, no clow
to who it was.
"I nover knew the man," ho said,
quickly. "One haa no wish to know
anything about him. The interesting
person is the woman in such a case.
Hero, Hester, you must be tho teacher.
Tell me, what would that discovery do
to a girl, a daring, ninsterful spirit
liko you?"
"Oil, captain, I am not daring or
masterful," cried the girl, clasping hor
hands; "don't you know it js cruol to
call mo so—I, thnt can do nothing,
that am only like a straw tossing on
the wutorjearried the way I would not!
If' I wore masterful, I would go away
from here, I would do something for
myself,"
"All that is no answer to my question," tho old captain said.
Hester was used to follow his leading at a touch. There was a kind of
mesmerism in the effect he had upon
her.
"I cannot tell," she said, in a low
and hurried voice, "I don't Bee; it
would turn all tho world wrong. It
would— But," she added, collecting
herself, "she would throw him away
from her like a dead thing. He would
be dead. She would think of him no
moro. Unworthy 1 One shakes one's
solf free; one is done with tlmt!" .
"Look again," said the old man,
with a half smilo, shaking bis head.
"I don't wish to look again. Is not
that enough? I suppose it would make
her very unhappy. She would struggle, she would find excuses. Ob, Captain Morgan, don't press me so! I
suppose everything would turn round
nnd round. Thero would seem nothing to stand on, nothing to look up to;
the skies would all whirl, and tho
solid ground. It makes my head
Bwim to think of it," tho girl cried,
covering her eyes with her hands.
"That wab how it was with Catherine, so far as I know. She had to exert herself to save the bunk, and tlmt
saved her."
"Had he anything to do with tho
bank?" she nsked, quickly.
"My dear, I tell you I was not here
at the time," said the wary old man.
"I had no knowledge of the circumstances. I nevor wish to know who he
was, lest, perhaps, I should fail iu
charity toward htm. It is Catharine I
want you to think of. Tho bank
troubles camo afterward, and sho had
to get up and put her shoulder to the
wheel, whioh saved her. But do you
think tho world ever lookod tho same
after? Hamlet would never hnve dis*
covered what traitors those young
courtiers Wore if his mother had not
turned out a fraud, uud his love a delusion; at least that is my opinion.
The wonder is he did not misdoubt
Horatio, too. That ia what I should
have done, if it had beon mo. But
thore is the good of genius, Hester;
the Master who know everything knew
better. Catherino had a sort of holiest Horatio' in old Rule, and she had
that work tu do, which was the bost
thing for her. But you may bo sure
the world was aU dissolving views,
and nothing solid in it for yours to
como."
Hester, nfter thu shock of the realization which had beeu forced upon
her, as to what the result of such a
calamity would be, felt exhausted and
sick at heart, as if all her strength liad
been worn out.
"Why did you want me to know
this?" she said, nt last. "I see no
signs of it in her. She looks so triumphant, as if nothing had over happened
nr oould happen. She sees through
everybody, and laughs ut them, as if
all their lies could nevor touch her,
Oh, she sees'very woll how thoy lie,
but Is never angry, only laughs: is
that tho way to make one love ho?
And sho docs not know the falso from
the true," the girl cried, with an access of indignation. ''Sho considers
us all thesame." , rf>
"No—no—no—no," said the old
man, patting her arm, but he did not
proas hor any further. He had said
as much as lie wanted to say. They
went further than usual over the common, ns ho had threatened to his wife,
and as they returned the old captain
owned himself fatigued, and took
Hester's arm. "You must bo my
great-grandchild in tho spirit," he
said. "Wo had a littlo girl once, my
wifo and L I lmvo often fancied her
grown up nnd married and having
children in her turn. Oh, I am a
great dreamer, and an old fool. You
remember Eliza's dream children, and
thon Tennyson, though ho was not old
enough to iaiow anything nbout it,
making the unborn faces shino besido
thu never-lighted tiro. Theao poets
make fools of ua all, Hester. They
know everything without any way to
know it. I fancy you are ono of littlo
Mary's children. She must be as old
as Cathorino Vernon, though nge, we
may supposo, doesn't count whoro she
JB."
"You nover told mo about her."
"Thoro was nothing to tell," ho
said, cheerfully. "Her mothor cries
still if you speak of littlo Mary, but
not I. It would have boen a great
thing for us if wo could have Kept
hur, but sho would have married, I
suppose, and her husband might not
have pleased me. I have thought of
thnt. She wonld havo been taken in,
probably, and brought us some man I
could uot put up with, though tho
children might havo beon nu addition.
I dare say sho would lmvo turned out
u soft, innocent creature, tnkon in all
round, something like your mother,
Hestor. You are tutnpted to despise
that, you clover ones, but it is a great
mistake "
"Oh, Captain Morgan, mother is
taken in, as you Buy, becuuso sho
thinks everybody truo—but shu is true
always,"
"Always^ said thu old mun with
fervor, "and far happier because bIio
does not find it out. My wifo is the
same. It is such souls as these timt
keep thu wurld steady. We should all
tumble to pieces if the ruco was made
up of people liko Catherino Vornon
and you."
"I wish you would not any Catherine Yoi'iion and me!" said Hester,
passionately; "thoro iB no likeness,
noiiu at all, nono nt nll!"
But tho old captain only laughed
and turned her attention to tho sunset, which was lighting up all tho
western sky. Tho pines stood up
against it line rigid black shadows, cut
out aguinat the golden light wliich
wns belted with flaming linos of crimson. Overhead tho sky ascended in
varying tints of dnffodil and faint
ethereal greenness up to the deep yet
brisdit summer bluo. The lust gleams
caught tlio yellow gorse upon tho common and turned every blossom into
gold, nnd all tho peaks of the Vernonry roso up black against tliu radiance
of tho weat.
"I wonder if the peoplo up there
have nny hand in it?" said the old man,
"I should liko to think so. Tho old
landscape painters, perhaps, that never
had such colors to work with before.
But iu that cose there would bo nothing for mo to do," ho added with a
laugh, "unless it wns boiiiu small post
about the gunneries. I was always
fond of my guns."
To Heater this light suggestion, and
tho laugh with which it was accompanied, sounded profane, Shu shrank
from anything which could tnko away
the awo and mystery from death, just
us tho old mun, who was so near the
threshold, liked to familiarize himself
with the thought of going over it, nnd
still finding himself a recognizable
creature there.
*      *      *      * -   *      *
It was nbout this time that Hester
becuiiio awai-e of a circumstance tho
most important that could possibly
happen in a young woman's life. There
had been no opportunity for her to
become acquainted with the emulations and rivnlship of other girls.
Girls thoro wero none about tfio Vernonry, nor did they abound iu the
neighborhood, in tho cla-ta from which
alone her mother's visitors wero chosen,
Mrs. Juhn, it has been said, belonged
to n county family, a fact of which sho
was as proud ub it was natural and becoming a woman should be. She did
not altogether frown upon tho few
callers from tho town who thought it
only their duty .to Miss Vernon, the
moat hospitable entertainer in the
neighborhood, to take a little notice of
the pensioners, aa the poor ladies at
the Vernonry wero culled; but, Bho
did not encourage these benevolent
visitors. "Thoy are all ladies, and as
good as any of us," Mrs. Redfern had
beeu hoard to say, who wna tho mayor's lady, and considered herself a
leader in society; and it was a beautiful sight to seo Mra. John in her old-
fashioned dark room ond simplest
bluck gown, receiving, with kind condescension, nnd endeavoring to set at
hor ease, this vory fine lady, who considered herself to be paying tho poor
widow a quite undeserved" honor. Mrs.
John returned cards only in acknowledgment of Mrs. Kcdfern's visit, and
thero the acquaintance ended. So
that Heater lost altogether the opportunity of knowing how ordinary girls
looked nnd talked, nnd what was tho
object of their ambition. Sho had
not oven, which mny surprise some
ueoplo, rom-- to,nuy conclusion whatever iu respect to her own personal
nppearauco. Sometimes, indeed, it
cannot bu denied, sho hnd looked up
in tho midst of a novel, whero all tho
young persons iu whom tho reader was
supposed to take any interest woro
beautiful, and ask hcrsolf vaguely,
with u blush, feeling ashamed of tho
question, whether shu was pretty.
But partly she wns ashamed to givo
the timo necessary to tho solution of
the problem, and partly sho hud uot
tho data upon wliich to form her conclusions. Thoro was a bonutiful girl in
ltodborough in a humble position,
upon whoso clniniB everybody was
agreed, bit;, she was a queenly creature, with dark hair and blue oyes,
and features of the moBt exquisite
regularity, to whom Hestor could not
flatter herself thnt sho boro the slightest reseniblnnce. Nor wat sho like
Ellon Vernon, with her lovely fairness, hor look of wax and confectionery, Hester wns not ethereal at all.
There wna no BtnallncBs about her,
though she was slim, ns became hor
ago. "The springy motion in hor
gait," the swift, light step which never
tired, wero beautiful in their way, and
so was the eager outlook in her oyos,
which seemed to contract or expand
According to tho degree of interest
with which outside subjects moved
them; but all this rather as exponents
of the mind within than as merely
physical features, Her hair had nover
grown long, not muoh longer, indeed,
than was juit necessary to twist into
the knot behind which proved hor to
be grown up, nnd it remained full of
curl, and ready to break tho smoothness of outline then thought neces-
aary, on the smallest provocation.
