Dock Money Distribution.
Mr, Jas. A brums, of Nanuimo,
writes to the Free Press, complaining oE the unfair distribution of the
provincial grant for public roods.
Ho points out that in 1882 Nunai-
mo received $5,000 for roads, und
this year it receive*) $6,300. But
Mr. Abrams says the government
received $250,000 from the Dominion for the dry-dock, and he contends that tlie excess of road grunt
over last year, $3,300, is not at all
equal to the proportion of the dock
money to which Nanaimo is justly
entitled. Mr, Abrams appears to
be laboring under tho mistaken notion that the whole of the dock
money has boon appropriated for expenditure. If he Imd examined the
estimates before making his statement tie would have perceived that
there is left it surplus of $76,860,
after providing for everything. This
surplus is undoubtedly part of the
dry-dock refund, and will be carried
over nnd become available as au
asset next year. If Mr. Abrams
had put forward a correct statement,
therefore, he should have compared
the increuse of road appropriation
with $173,140 of dock money expended, and not with the $250,000
received. But there is another point
of view from which this matter may
be considered. Is Nanaimo or Victoria, or any of the settlements adjacent, entitled to any portion whatever of this dock money ? In all
fairness we think not. It is true
the federal government refused to
recognize the chums of British Columbia upon them for delays in the
construction of the Canada Pacific
Railway* hut they agreed to guarantee the construction of the island
railway, and in consideration of tliat
guarantee the provincial government
specifically renounced all claim for
such compensation. The federal
guarantee curries with it a cash
bonus of $750,000 towards the construction of the island railway.
Now, inasmuch as tlie mainland
had an equal claim witli the island
for compensation, and inasmuch as
that claim was wholly surrendered
on condition that the railway across
Vancouver Island should bo built,
we submit that the people of the
mainland have at least a moral
claim upon tlio federal bonus. There
will accrue to the mainland no advantage whatever froui the construction of the island railway, further
than that it may increase the value
of certain island property and thus
enlarge the provincial revenues. The
federal bonus is, therefore, solely for
the benefit of the island. But as
no part of it goes into the provincial
treasury, or comes tinder provincial
control, it follows tlmt our government cannot divert it from the specific object for which it is given,
and the mainland cannot participate
(except vory remotely) iu the ml
vantages of its expenditure. We
claim, therefore, that tho dock
money should wholly go to tlie mainland en an extra appropriation. The
island gets $750,000 of federal
money for its railway: as « sot-off
the mainland is fairly entitled to tho
(200,000 dock money.

rectly attending him. He maintained
a calm demeanor, although lie often
smiled graciously in response to the
wild enthusiasm whioh greeted hirn at
every point. Cheer upon cheer followed each other instantly from the densely packed multitude on the streets, und
from thousands of people on balconies
and windows. The empress was greeted with every murk of enthusiasm and
loyalty. Her daughter, the Grand
Duchess Xena, threw kissess to tho
peoplo. Tho mounted grand dukes
formed a very brilliant group. Tho
Asiatic deputations were also magnificently attired, tho state carriages
splendidly decorated, and the whole
was most gorgeous. Tho entire route
was Hnod with troops. At the moment
the cortege entered the city a salute of
seventy one guns was tired from the
Tsarikaia palace. The Governor-Qon-
cral was at the city boundary aud joined tho cortege with his suite. Tho
streets through which the cortege
passed woro badly paved. The Duke
of Edinburgh sat m the second coach
from that in wliich was the Empress,
In Red Square 0,000 school children
in whito robes sang "Life -for tho
Czar." At this point tho enthusiasm
of the . multitude and playing of tlie
bauds produced a groat effect. The
general verdict is that this pageant
was a great success. The Emperor
wore a broad blue ribbon of tho ordor
of St. Andrews over his uniform. The
Empress and Grand Duchess wore
national Russian drosses. After entering Kremlin, the court officials presented their majesties with bread and
salt on plates of silver nnd gold. Whon
their majesties retired bolls pealed and
a salute of 101 guns wore fired. Gen.
Strum, head master of ceremonies,
was thrown from his horse aiul had his
skull fractured.

Moscow, May 22.— Tho Czar left
the Ritrofsky palace at noon and
reached tho Kremlin nt 12:50 o'olook.
There was a Blight fall of rain during
the march of the procession, but othorwiso the affair was u complete success.
The enthusiasm of the people along
the route was unbounded. Tne signal
for starting tho procession was tho firing of artillery, and mounting. Other
salutes woro tired. At tho old triumphal arch marshals of tho nobility
of Warsaw aud several other districts
did homage to tho Emperor. At Ever-
skryn palace the Civil Governor of
Mobium, Judges and other civil officers recoivudtlio Emperor ut tlio Gato
of Resurrection, whero His Imperial
Majesty and Grand Dukes and Empress alighted nud knelt iu prayer before the picture of tho Virgin, and
" Archbishop of Warsaw received their
Majesties at tho steps of the Cathedral
of Assumption with tho cross and holy
water. At this poiut the cheering of
the  peoplo was perfectly deafening.
' The procession then entered Kremlin.
Tho Emperor wore tho uniform of a
Sonoral, nnd waa mounted on n splon-
id charger.   Ho rode a little in advance of four generals, who wero di-
Prof. W. A, Rogers has recorded
the curious discovery that tho microscope may fail to show lines or errors
in ruled lines whicli may be detected
with the unaided eye.
A Swan electrio lamp "not larger
than n bean" is employed by Mr. J.
B, Payne in aevernl forms of apparatus
for illuminating the interior of the
body. An exhibition of the instruments was mndo nt a Into meeting of
the Northumberland and Durham
Medical Society, of England.
An account, by Prof. G. W, Kraft,
of an ice-pnlnco built nt St. Sototsburg
in 1740 contains the remarkablo statement thnt nn ice-cannon was nlso mndo,
from which, with a charge of a quarter
of a pound of powder, a bullet wns
driven through a plank two inches
thick at a distanco of fifty paces.
In ancient Egypt tho tax-collector's
receipts wore inscribed un fragments
of broken crockory. From the British
Museum collection of those queer
documents—which have beon found iu
large numbers—a series of translations
has been mado by Dr. Birch, showing
the tax in Egypt under the early
Ciesnrs.
The discovery is reportod of largo
nnd very rich doposits of petroleum in
the tipper provinces of the Argentine
Republic. On* of tho deposits, in tho
province of Jujuy, consists of a Inko of
about eighty-eight ncres in area, and
of unknown depth, which is covorod
with Dsphaltc. Tho liquid itself is
rather thick, of a block color, and is
snid to bo free from disagreenble odor.
Dr. WV Sopor has recommended n
mixture of equal parts of glycerine nnd
enstor oil, slightly flavored with oil of
almonds or lemon, as an agreeable substitute for enstor oil To ensure the
ready mixing of the two liquids the
castor oil should be very gradually
fiourod into tho glycerine while tho
ntter is boing woll stirred. Dr. S.
pronounces a teaspoonful of this mixture an effective uoso.
Japan contains, according to Prof.
Jules Marcou, 131 volcanoes, of which
46 nre active. The active volcanoes
are most numerous between the 138th
and the 140th degree of east longitude
and the 32nd and the 38th parallel of
latitude, It is therefore considered by
no moans strange that Tokio, located
within these limits, should have experienced 377 onrthqunko skoebs in
the five years from 1876 to 1881.
The exploring expedition soon to
sturt fur Greenland under the command of Baron Nordenskjold is to
have iu its outfit a flying or air-sailing
machine, which is now being constructed in Sweden at tho oxponse of Dr.
Oscar Dickson. It is to bo presumed
that the idea of carrying such an apparatus is au outcome of Commander
Choyne's favorite project of travelling
in the Arctic regions by menus of balloons.
Modern medical science is gaining n
foothold in China. Miss Howard, an
Amorican physician, hnving beon called upon to treat tho mothor and tho
wife of tho Chinese Viceroy, Li Hung
Chang, hns become very famous among
aristocratic Chinese ladies, who now
flock to consult hor. It is also said
that the Emperor of China has arranged to educate a number of youths
iu European modicum nnd surgery in
Hindostun colleges.
A record of American earthquakes in
1882, prepared by Prof. O. G. Rook-
wood, Jr., includes seventy-two items,
of which thirteen nro given as doubtful. The seventy-two earthquakes are
classified geographically ns follows:
Canada, six; Now England, five, three
boing doubtful; Atlantic States, six,
four boing doubtful; Mississippi Valley,, olevon, two boing doubtful; Pn-
cifio Coast, nineteen, threo being
doubtful; Mexico nnd Central America, eighteen; Venezuela', ono; West
Indies, live, ono being doubtful; Peru,

Telegraphic communication being
now established between nil the
Australian colonics, it is proposed to
issue at Melbourne n d ily weather
chart, showing ntmospherie conditions
at nine a.m., and venturing predictions
for tho following day, especially when
cyclone disturbances appear noar tho
coast. Thoso storms usually como from
tho southern Indian Ocean, and travel
oast or north-east, sometimes running
nshore nnd sometimes passing south of
Tasmania. Warnings of tho approach
of the storms nre sont by cable to Now
Zealand; as they seldom fail to roach
that region, tnking from two to threo
days for the passage from Australia.   •

"Mc Steam Ferry.
We are glad to learn tbat the
mayor of this oity has been in communication with tho councils of tho
municipalities lying beyond the river
with a view to some action on the
ferry question. It has been arranged
that a meeting of representatives
from these municipalities shall be
held in this city next Friday night
to discuss the matter and, if possible,
agree upon a basis for joint action.
We hope none of the municipalities
will neglect to send representatives.
The matter is one of vory great im
portance and there are urgent reasons
why notion should not be delayed.
In a late issue wo pointed out that
under the most favorable circumstances the fall produce will be almost ready for market before a steam
ferry could be established. It is
rery important that the coming fall
and winter should not find these
communities, as they have been,
without adequate means of reaching
the market. Tlie matter has been
placed entirely in their hands by the
government, and the responsibility
of failure must rest with them.
The settlement Act.
The great question at present occupying the minds of Victoria newspaper! is whether the government
policy has been a success or a failure. Tlie Standard howls with delight because it has persuaded itself
that the federal government have refused to ratify tbe agreement, while
the Colonist vigorously denies that
there is any ground for such a statement We sincerely hop. the Colonist is right, and we believe it is.
If, through any cause whatever, the
bill passed by the local legislature'
should beconio void, the consequences
would be most serious. The province would be compelled to worry
on with its dry-dock, and the railway lands would remain shut up
agasid'. si'.t'ers. Immigrants would
go away, aa they have already gone,
disappointed and disgusted because
ths very lands tbey desired for homesteads were barred* against settlement. But we don't believe anything of the sort. Mr. Trutch, it
was supposed, arranged substantially
ths terms of agreement when he
went to Ottawa, and the details were
the only subject of negotiation after
hia return. It is quite possible that
these details, as embodied in the
provincial act, may not all be accepted by tho federal government, but
that need not vitiate the settlement.
We know that the members of out-
own government are exceedingly
anxious that a final settlement of
these vexed questions, which have
so long retarded the development of
this province, should be reached with
all possible speed. Wo have every
reason to believe that the Dominion
government fully appreciated the
gravity of the situation, and ware
prepared to entertain favorably any
fair plan of adjustment. Iu view of
this we cannot for a moment suppose that another season will be allowed to pass with these questions
undetermined. We are sorry to notice the anxiety with whioh the
Standard grabs and swallows every
foolish and absurd rumor which may
embarrass the government. Such a
spirit of party vindictiveness is unworthy of any journal; and, if it
has any effect at all, it must tend to
disturb the public mind and retard
our national progress.
Bald on a Jail.
Bat It wu flallanlly Defended.
Mr. SiEiimo, Ky., Hay 26.—There
has been confined in the county jail of
Montgomery county for ten days past
John Barrett and ten companions,
known as the Barrett gong, charged
with the murder of Vaugh Hilton on
the night of Saturday, Jfay 12th, on
the edge of the county nearest the
Manifee line. Rumors reached Judge
Jas. H. Hazeleygg of this county, some
days ago, that a mob from Manifee
county, composed of friends of the
murdered man, were coining lo take
the prisoners at night and hang aome
of them at least. He had ordered an
extra fore, to be ou duty at the jail.
. The Jailor, J. 0. Stephens, who is
quite old, had gotten the City Marshal,
Pat Punch, to take his place. Marshal
Punch and Deputy Sheriff Goorgo Mc-
Oonniok, were keeping guard in the
hallway ot the jail, and Richard
Farmar, James Thomas and Jesse
Aamlin, armed with shot guns, Spencer rifles and pistols, were stationed iu
tbe front room upstairs. At 1 o'clock
a mob of a hundred or more on horseback entered Mount Sterling from the
direction of Msnifee, rode rapidly to
tht jail, where they were reinforced
by a small party on foot. When they
advanced to th* gate of the jail yard,
*Uiluid Farm.r, from hi. window
5fT» with hi. st-atf-ai well lead.d
with buckshot in hand, commanded a
halt, and asked who thoy wero and
what they wanted. "We want blood,
and we are going to havo it," waB
promptly responded, and to the further command of Farmer to halt, there
rang out on the night air: "Close up
this; they won't shoot," and at the
same moment one of the mob entered
the gangway. When just within the
gate another message came from Farmer, but this time it was a leaden one
(buckshot), which felled the leader.
With demon-like yells tho mob commenced tiring. The guard from the
upper windows returned the fire as
rapidly as possible for three to live
minutes, when the mob retired. The
bells of the court houso and engines were promptly rung, and the
Oerro Goado Guards and many citizens
soon came to the rescue. Upon opening the jail door tho wounded man,
who had fallen forward on tho steps,
was carried into tho jail and thero
recognized as A. J. Bingo, High Sheriff
of Manifeo county. Near the jail,
wounded in the leg, was found Thomas
Clarke, a wealthy farmer of this county. Near hiin lay his horse, dead,
killed by a bullet from a Sponcor rifle
which had wounded his rider. Shortly
afterward two or throe stray saddled
horses with no riders were found.
Clarke claimed that lie was only passing and was accidently hit, and was
not a member of tho mob, but the
statement is generally disbelieved.
Sheriff Ringo, when asked by Marshal
Punch what he meant by heading a
mob, said: "John Barrett and his gang
havo been bushwhacking the people
for three years past, and the good people of my county are tired. This gang
havo previously been charged with the
murder of Jim Messer, the shooting of
Gil Messer, and the stabbing. of
Vaughn Hilton two years ago, and
were acquitted by tho Courts. Therefore, after advising with the best men
in my county, I came here to hang
Barrett and others." Bundles of rope
with hangman's knots carefully made
were found near Ringo's body. Ringo
is dangerously wounded, five balls
penetrating his right leg ten inches
above the knee, necessitating amputation, and will probably result fatally.
Although tho ceiling of the room above
is riddled with bullet holes, none of
the guards wore wounded. Tlie general
sentiment of the public here is that it
was very unfortunate that the mob did
not succeed in hanging the Barrett
gang, as thoy are considered dospera-
does of the most dangerous type, This
affair seems to be the result of a family
feud existing for a long term of years
past, which has from first to last cost
many lives, and will only closo with
death of all parties concerned. Ringo,
the wounded leader of the mob, has
three cousins and one brother-in-law
in the outlaw gang, whom ho waB attempting to hang, and which will
doubtless cost him hia life. Ho has
since 1HCG been an officer in the county .--and has always enjoyed an excellent reputation in his community ob a
fine officer and a law-abiding citizen.

Port Moodv Post Office.-•■•Nu-
merous complaints aro made about the
location of thia office. It is at Bonson's Hotel, about two miles away
from tho "oity," whero nearly all the
Port Moody people live. This is very
inconvenient, and we think the post
oflico authorities should mako a change,
There are some very respectable storekeepers beyond the station, where the
office shuuld undoubtedly be located,
We are not sure that a hotol is u pro
per place for a post office anyway. Mr.
Benson may keep a most respectable
house for anything we know to the
contrary, but very few people care to
send their children for letters to a
hotol. When the oflico was first

may have beeu no other place avail
able, but things are different uow.

(Correspondence of tho Columbian.)
The people of Mud Bay and Clover
Valley aro looking forward with groat
satisfaction to the erection of a publio
school house in each of those fertile
sections. Regular church services and
good schools constitute, in the minds
of desirable immigrants, two loading
inducements to Bottlo in any given locality. No new township iB better
supplied with the former than Surrey,
as there are regular services by Presbyterian, Episcopal, and Methodist
Churches. Our municipal councillors
havo manifested a laudable ambition
in erecting, in a central situation, a
town hall, which serves as well for
public meetings and religious services.
The crops are looking well. Now
roads are being opened up, and wero it
not for the general gloom which has
overcast the community on account of
tho tnysteriouB disappearance of Mr.
Holme, everything would bear a cheerful aspect, I am informed that Mr.
Thrift has had several inquiries in reference to desirable farms, and I am
suro he will bo ready always to give
prompt and polito attention to all persons seeking information or advice
about tho township. The prominence
given in tho Columbian to tho resources and advantages of thia and other
sections is very gratifying to your
readers,
From Ladner's Landing.

On Saturday evening last John, son
of Mr. Jas, Arthur, was thrown from
a horse and stunned so as to cause considerable anxiety. Ho has sinco quite
recovered, and is about again, Mr.
Williams, lato of Esquimalt, has his
new house nearly finished. The dinner mentioned in your last issue as
having been given by Mr. MoNeely
(not MoAuley), was a free lunch, and
is highly spoken of, as ia the publio
spirit of the gentleman who provided
it. As will be seen by reference to
the council proceedings, several grants
of money, amounting in all to 8800,
have been mado to assist in carrying
out much-need od improvements, among
which are roads, ditches, and a bridge
over the slough, which will materially
improve tho neighborhood. Tho fish
run is light so far, notwithstanding tho
large preparations made to give them a
hearty reception. These cannery men
ahould charter one of tho old-time conjurers from Yale or Spuzzum, and
have him howl for a few nights at

learned a new and very agreeable
game over there, and intend introducing it in New Westminster That
a aide hill and a small stump are not
necessary to tho success of the game,
but are convenient adjuncts nnd make
it   more   interesting That   the
"Gem" is a real gem un a mud-bank.
 That in winter tho water-fowl
all go. away, and in tho spring tho
trees leave, too That a fourth
burial-ground sprang up (or down) all
in ono night last week That tho
person who fired that gun should have
a chromo for his marksmanship	
That ha will ba likely to crow no moro

and Good are excellent horsemen; also,
that they can handle a boat in fino
stylo. For further particulars ask Dr.
Henderson That tho Drum Major has lost his coat That there
was a boss headache doctor on the excursion to  Nanaimo That it is
very probable, however, that he will
give up practice soon aiid turn his attention  to   othor matters That
mosquitoes are bocoming troublesome
interviewers That gardens everywhere are looking exceedingly woll.

Onr Naval Defences
Uurr.ir-l Inlet nn n Suval Klntlmi.
Tho Overland Mail of tho 20th April
says: At tho Royal United Service
Institute recently, Admiral Sir ft.
Eauahawe iu tho chair, Major-Gen. J.
W. Laurie, Into deputy adjutant-general of militia in Canada, read a paper
on "Tho Protection of our Naval Baso
in tho North Pacific." Having pointed
out that Russia, waa gradually removing her chief naval depot from the
land-looked Euxino and Baltic to the
moro opon coast at Vladivostok, and
that her naval forces in connection
with her settlements in eastern Asia
had been greatly increased, General
Laurie urged that an effective British
force ought to bo maintained in tho
North Pacific witli a suitable base,
whence supplies could be drawn. At
present the Esquimalt naval yard ou
Vancouver Island wna our only depot
for coal and stores, and ho thought it
was far from being tho moat suitable
position. General Laurie then proceeded to offer reasons in support of
Burrard Inlot as a preferable station
for coaling and refitting. Thoro a
splendid harbor was available, approached by a wide channel with good
anchorage, while nearly opposite was
Nanaimo, a groat coal depot, and tho
Canada Pacific Railway would bring
withiii reach the vast food-producing
districts of the Saskatchewan, which
were becoming rapidly populated. An
interesting discussion ensued, in which
Admiral Sir Leopold MeClintook, Sir
A. T. Gait, Prof. Bryce, M. P., Mr.
Williamson, M. P., Capt. Bedford
Pirn, Capt. Curtis, and othor gentlemen took part, tho majority of tho
speakers agreeing that the defence of
our North Amorican colonioB was a
matter of tho highest importance, aud
deprecating any diminution of our
naval forces in the Eastern Pacific.
LOST IN THE WOODS,
Helino's Bear Hunting Expedition.
Which rn-liiiMy Cost Mm his life!
On Friday morniug, the 18th inst,
a young man named Augustus Holme,
in the employ of Mr. Thes. Shannon,
of Clovor Valley, took dogs and gun
and started for tho woods to hunt
bears. About 5 o'clock the samo ovening the dogs returned alone, and nothing has Binco beon seen or heard of
the man. On the following day, and
for several days, the peoplo of the
neighborhood wont out and explored
tho surrounding country in every direction, but all efforts to find eveim
trace of tho missing man havo been
fruitless. ' LaBt Sunday a party of men
wore engaged in searching tho rivor
Nicomekl in tho belief that possibly
tho body might be found thero. Up
to the present writing tho matter remains an impenetrable mystery. It is
altogether probable the man is dead,
but tho manner of his taking off—
whether accidentally shot, drowned,
slain by a bear, or simply lost in the
woods—nono can toll. PoBBibly the
poor follow may have met with an accident disabling him, and still lingers
in pain and hunger and loneliness.
The terrible uncertainty leads the settlers in the vicinity to put forth every
possible effort to solve tho mystery.
We understand that Holme came by
steamship from Germany Inst fall.
His own parents are said to be dead,
but ho leaves a widowed stop-mother
to whom he intended to Bond part of
his earnings. He was a quiet, well-
behaved young man, about 10 years of
age, aud attended public worship and
Sunday school in the Clover Valley
school house regularly, learning aud
reciting verses of Scripture, and manifesting a deep interest in religious instruction. At his request the Rev.
W. J. Dowler, of this city, sent over
to him a German bible which he received the evening before his melancholy disappearance. Ho had no
money with him, waB perfectly sane,
and there is no roason to suspect that
his prolonged absence is vomitory.
From Laiixley,

Gon. Wlioopingkoff having been
summoned to attend his imperial muster's coronation at Moscow, tho sioge
waa raised and Col. Sluggott laat Saturday issued a general order for grand
parade and roll-call at educational
headquarters on Monday. It was reported some time ago that tho colonel
was indisposed, but the army surgeon
having pronounced the cose to be only
one of sympathy, ho has concluded to
continue in tho activo service and
hopes ho will bo able, nobly supported
by Capts. Swinton, Calkin, Smith and
MoMurchy, to effect a rapid movement, nnd reinforced by McLellon,
rout the allied forces of ignorance, stupidity and truancy. He surely will if
liis rank and file, like the ancient Spartan lads, will rather be carried home
on their shields (slates) than abandon
them, and sooner lot tho cunning fox
empty their lunch baskets than be
caught in a mean act. A new-comer
has bought the farm which belonged

Stewart decided to purchase a choice
form from tho H. B. Co., and haa

Norris' new residence is being enclosed, and tho farm shows many acres
recently brought under cultivation.
Mr, Jos. Gray occupies his now residence, and with his well-known energy
is reducing tlio surroundings. Mr. H.
Davis is fulfilling hia contract on the
Hall's Prairie road. What Henry
does is generally woll dono. The
crops are woll nigh all sown, and the
growth, ao far, is exceedingly oucour-
nging. Cattlo on the commons aro iu
splendid condition, and if the hogs
wero only permitted to root in peace,
thoy would look well too; but what
with watching, listening, and running
from real or fancied enemies, thoy
don't "tako on" as they otherwise
would, Aud no wonder. Whon two
armed men fail to. protect from ono
bear tho body of a dead hog, how can
a living porker hope to defend himsolf

THE ANNUAL REPORT OF THE •
Directors of the Confederation Life
Insurance Company is a more than usually interesting document of the kind.
It shows 1,513 new policies for 1882, assuring 12,610,387. The total number of
policies is now 6,357, assuring39,909,24(1.
Notwithstanding the large sum paid out
in cash profits to policy-holders, tho financial statement snows a handsome fat-
crease in the cash assets. There were
during tho year 34 deaths, involving the
Bum of 951,(156. The results of thequin-
quonuial allotment of profits have given
unalloyed satisfaction to tiie policy-holders, ond the valuation of the Company's
liabilities has been done independently
by Mr. Carpmael, their regular actuary;
by Mr. CheiTiman, Dominion Inspector
of Insurance; and by Mr. Homans, a
New York actuary. Tho net valuations
by these three authorities are 9739,230,
?727.297, and 9700,252 reipcctively-au
exhibit well calculated to show the
foundationleBB nature of the attacks
made upon the Company.

Keep Nothing from Mother.
"Now listen to me my little one,
There's one thing thou should's fear,
Let never a word to iny love be said
That mother should not hear.
"No matter how true, iny darling one,
The words may scetn to thee,
They are not fit for my child to hear
H they are not fit for mo.
"H thou'lt ever keep thy young heart
puro,
Thy mother's heart from fear,
Bring all that's told to thee by day
At night to mother's ear/	
The Deacon's Cherries.
Cherries? I should say bo! There's
no end to 'em-trees aro loaded and
red's a burning bush. I was by thero
to-day."
It was an intensely eager voice, and
' Davy Kent, the speaker, ended his littlo speech with an expressive Btnack of
the ltps.
"He'd never miBS the few we d take,
would he boys?" That was Ned
Rodgers. It was upon a straw pile
behind Mr. Rodgers' barn that the
boys were holding an earnest consultation.
"Miss 'em ? No, not if we took twice
as many as we will."
"A bushel will be enough to treat
tho whole crowd, won't it?"
"Oh, any amount I"
"Now, see here, boys,"-—and Clem
Goodrich lifted himself into a Bitting
posture and knitted his brows thoughtfully as he spoke,—"I think—isn't
this—doesn't it seem a little bit liko
stealing ? Don't you Buppose he would
give us a few if we were to ask him ?
It looks to me—"
But right here Clem's mild voice was
drowned in a roaring, boisterous
chorus.
"It's not staling, me boy," said Con
O'Brien, with the faintest brogue in
the world; "it's only helping ourselves
to a few cherries that otherwise might
spoil for tho want o'picking, and so be
wasted entirely. And if Deacon Gam-
don't know it, he'll be none the wiser,
for he's got pilea and napes moro'n he
ean tako care of. Ten to one he'll be
obliged to us for helping him out a little—he isn't a bad old gintleman at
the heart, you know. And it's for the
fun of it as well as the aiting we tako
'em, that's the truth."
"So'tis," echoed a good many of the
boys.
As for Clem, he gazed into Con's
serious face doubtfully, yet, it must
bo confessed, very willing to be convinced.
"I suppose you know best," said he,
"you fellows that have lived here all
your lives."
"Of course," laughed Jerry Parker.
"Why, my father says he always plants
an extra water-melon for us boys as
well as for the buss."
So they reasoned away their doubts
and made their plans; and somehow,
before the little party broke up, each
boy had pretty nearly succeeded in
persuading himself that he would be
doing the deacon a favor by helping
him make away with a small portion
of his fruit. All the same, Ned Rodgers couldn't resist a feeling of guilt,
not unmingled with dread, when his
father said at the tea-table that even-
" me-: "I wonder what Deacon Gammon
thought of that mow of early cut timothy! He was up to look at it this
afternoon."
Nobody could tell what the deacon
thought of the hay, for nobody had
seen liim. But Ned was thinking that
he would give something to know just
at what time in the afternoon the deacon came to look at the hay-mow.
That ia what ho said to his friends
when they met noxt night all ready
for the proposed raid on tho deacon's
cherries. There wore not a few blank
faces in the little crowd when he told
his story.
"He might have heard ua if he was
there when wo were talking," said
Ned, beating a lively tattoo on the
bottom of his basket. "I don't Bay he
did but he might."
"Oh,psharfl" exclaimed Con O'Brien.
"The deacon's deaf, a little, and I
don't believe he could hear what wo
were saying. Why didn't you go
'round, me boy, to the straw hapo and
see if you could hear yourself in the
bar-rn r
A about went up at that, which, to
be sure, was exactly what Con wanted,
since there Is nothing better than a
jolly sounding laugh to put a boy on
good tenns with himself and everybody
else.
"It's all right," said he. "Come on,
now, and don't you be afraid of noth-
in\"
Not a boy among them was afraid,
but a good many of them couldn't keop
their hearts from fluttering in a very
queer way when they camo, with their
baskets and bags, to the gap in Deacon
Gammon's orchard wall. The orchard
was near the house, and the cherry-
trees were scattered about among the
apple-trees in a haphazard fashion.
Tho house looked dark and still.
"It's iuBt as I told you," whispered
Con O'Brien, triumphantly. "The
deacon and his wife have gone to
prayer-mating, and the coast is clear.
Ran for wel Look at 'cm, mo boys."
They did moro than look at the
great, delicious, clustering cherries
hanging from tho boughs, which bent
down with their weight. They pulled
them by tho handfuls, and bogB and
baskets wore rapidly filled.
"But there dent look to be any
less'u there was when we begun," said
Con, with a merry chuckle. "Now,
boys, isn't this a big help to the old
gentleman ? He'd niver get away with
'em alone, suro."
There was no sound except the
-voices of the frogs in the marsh undor
the hill while the work went briskly
on. It was when the boys were ready
to leave that they heard a voice in the
direction of the deacon's domicile:
"I don-t know, but I'll walk out and
see."
"It's ould Mrs. Gammon herself!"
sounded Con's excited whisper. "Go
for tho gap, me boys, and don't spill
your oherries over.   Go, now!"
They were all too ready to obey, away
they skurricd, with long leaps, like
frightened rabits, through the orchard-
grass to the break in the wall. But
they did not go beyond it. Up rose
the deacon on the other side as cool—
io Jerry Baker afterward said—as n
frozen cucumber.
"Good evening, boys," said he. He
took off his hat ns lie spoke, and by
the light of the inoon the boys could
see that he was making a desperate
effort to keep his face straight. "Now
I'm—Hold on there! Stop!"
For Con and Iko Hams had started
to run. They stopped, however. There
wm nothing else to do when the deacon spoko in that way, and they knew
"Let's see," said the deacon reaching toward Ned Rodger' basket, whioh
WM forthwith handed over to him with
gmt alacrity; "let's see how many
foffre got."
He examined every boy's load in
turn and iu silence, and all the whilo
the boys looked into one another's
faces without speaking. Oh! if the
moon would but go under a cloud.
When the deacon had finished his
inspection he spoke again, kindly, nnd
with a pleasant smile:
"Now, boys, I'm much obliged to
ye. I've laid out to g-j to town with n
load o'truck to-morrow, and I waa
wenderin' how I'd get iny cherries
picked. I'm reely obliged jto ye, and
I'll be more so if ye'll carry 'em to tho
house for mo."
Not a boy folt like disobeying. Not
one but silently pickod up hia burden
of cherries and marched along before
the deacon and into tlio houso.
"Set 'em right down here," directed
Deacon Gammon, cheerily, "an1 I'll
seo to em 'fore long. Now, boys, ye'vo
worked considerable hard, an' you
want Borne supper. Como in an' have
some cherry pie an' cheese."
Every boy's face said ho would
rather die, and thero was a sound of
murmured negatives.
"¥cb, you will," said the deacon
"you'vo worked well, an' deserve your
supper. Right into tho kitchen now,
right in! Mother's awaitin' for ye."
So Bhe was—kind, motherly Mrs.
Gammon. And thero was a table loaded with goodies waiting for them, too
— sandwiches and plum cako and
cherry pie and chorry tarts and cherries-cherries everywhere.
"Good evening, Baid Mrs. Gammon,
beaming upon tho boys.
"Take somo chairs," ordered tho
deacon, behind them; and set right up
and have somo chorry pie and sech."
Tho boys wondered whether thoy
were awake or dreaming as thoy filed
shatne-facediy past Mrs. Gammon, hats
in hand, and took seats at tho well-
spread table.
"Now, help yourselves," said the
deacon's wife. And each boy in hia
heart wondered if she knew, and hoped
Bhe didn't. But they helped thom-
selves readily enough; and at length,
betweon the deacon's funny stories and
the delicious cherry pie, they camo as
near enjoying themselves us was possible under the circumstances.
"You ain't eat Bcarcely anything,'1
Baid the deacon, when the boys finish-
their me.il. "Havo somo cherries?
Ha! ho! ho!"
"Now, father!" expostulated his
wife mildly; and then the boys knew
sho knew,
"I don't s'poso I'd ought to," said
tho deacon, and he walked to the head
of the table, and stood thore looking
down at his young guestB with a queer
little smile, "I am't much of n
speocliifier," said ho, "but I wnn't to
ask you boys a question. Which would
ye rather be when yo get ready to tako
your father's places, honest- men or
rogues ?"
Every boy caught his breath. The
old eight-day clock in the corner ticked
painfully loud.
"Tho inan'll be about the samo us
the boy," went on the deacon. "Now,
wtticli'll you bo, boys, rogues or honest
mon ?"
"Hon — honest men," cried Con
O'Brien.
Later on he said he couldn't help it,
with the deacon looking at him in that
anxious way; but he meant it all the
same. And they all followed his lead,
aa they ever did, every boy,
"That's right," said Deacon Gam-
men; that's just right; and we won't
Bay another word about it."
"No, don't," said his wife.
But, after all, it was Con O'Brien
who Baid the right thing in the right
place ns he picked up his basket, which
wasn't entirely empty, in the porch.
"Wheneveryou want any help about
picking your cherries, Deacon Gammon, call on us," said ho. "We'll bo
sure to come whon you send for us,
and we won't beforo, honest Injun!"
"That's right," said tho deacon;
"that's right."
Then his eyes twinkled, aa the boys
filed out into the night. "Edward,"
said ho to Nod Rodgers, "tell your
father that's tho beat mow of timothy
I ever saw."
"It's just the way I thought," cried
the boys, when they got out of tho
deacon's hearing; just exactly."—Harper's Young People.
