N0T«S AND COMMENTS.
In tlie wliolo sky an eye ot average
power will see about 0,000 stars.
With a telescope that number is
greatly inuraiset!, and the most
powerful telescopes show more than
60,000,000. Of this number, not

A remarkable sale took place on
July 31, at Lexington, Kjr., on the
occasion of the sale of the celebrated
three year old stallion Bell Boy.
This horse had a record at three
years of 2:26, and was bought four
months ago for $35,000 by Jefferson
it Seaman. To close the partnership, tho animal was again- lold as
above, and brought on the block the
large sum of $50,000, the largest
price ever paid for a horse in this
country. The purchaser of Bell
Boy was 0. K Seaman.—Scientific
American.        ,,',',,;
Virtue is said to be its own reward, and the approval of one's
conscience and the regard of Heaven
the highest compensation for welldoing. Evidently .does not think
sp, however, the Victoria K»»e».
Our cotemporary feels as if he had
been wasting his sweetness(l) re the
Menzies case on the desert air. It
we had known that he was so longing for a kind word to cheer him in
his arduous aud devoted work for
the good of society, and the edification of the reading public, we would
have exhausted the vocabulary; of
encomiums. Oheer up, old boy, you
have done famously,
A giraffe having trodden on the
into a rage and valorouily closed with
tho invading foot "Hullo, sonny!"
said the giraffe, looking down, "what
are you doing therel" "I am 6ght-
ingl" was the proud reply, "but I
don't know if it is any of your business." "Oh, I have no desire to
mix in," mid the good-natured
giraffe, "I never take odes in terrestrial strife.   Still as that is my
fcqt,..I think' "   "Eh I"laid tbe
poodle, backing some distance and
gating upward, shading his eyes
with his paw, "You don't mean to
say—by Jove, it's a fact. Well,
that beats me! A -beast of such
enormous length—such preposterous
duration, as it were—I wouldn't
have believed it! Of course I can't
quarrel with a non-resident: but
why don't yoU huvffa^liigent on
the ground 1" Tho reply wai probably the wisest ever made, but it
has not descended to this generation.
It has so very far to descend.—Mali,
John Cadman, in the -August
Century, says: I once heard Father
Taylor preach' a lermon on the
atonement. It was all in a style
that nobody but a sailor could understand, a style that every sailor
could comprehend, although a treatise on this subject from an uptown
pulpit would have been "Greek" to
him. This was one of the passages:
"You are dead in trespasses and
sins, and buried too, down in the
lower hold among the ballast, and
you cau't get out, for there is a ton
of sin on the main hatch. You
shin up tho stanchions and try to
get it open, put you can't. You rig
a purchase. You get your handspikes, capit:tn bars mid witch
tiicMes, hut they are no good. . You
cau't start it. Then you begin to
sing out for' help. | You hail nH the
saints you think aro on deck, but
they can't holt) you. At last you
hail Jesus Christ. He' conies
straight along. All lie wanted was
to he 'asked. He just claps his
shoulder to that ton of sin. It rolls
oil', and then lie says, 'Shipmates,
come out!' Well, if you don't come
out, it is all your own fault." It
was on the Sunday before a stiite
election. Briggs was tlio candidate
of the whig party, but Father Taylor desired that he ihould be elected
because he was a religious man.
This was his prayer : "O I ord,.give
us gcad men to rule over us, just
men, temperance men, (Jhiistiun
men, nicu who fear Thee, who, obey
Thy commandments, men who—but,
O Lord, what's the use of veering
and hauling and point all round the
compass?' Give us George N. Briggs
for goyernorl" -Hie prayer was
answered on the next day. Father
Taylor was eloquent, humorous, and
pathetic by turns. Sometimes all
those characteristics seemed to be
merged in one. Theso and many
others of his traits interested me,
but I loved him because, lint and
lust and all the time he was the
sailor's friend.

teen rccruiti were recently sent from
Fort Kcogh to the garrison at Mammoth Hot Spring!.. Since their arrival
they have caused great trouble. Three
deierted, one wit lent to Fort Custer
to be courtmirtlaled and the remainder have been in a constant state of
insubordination. Yesterday one of
them attacked a man on the street and
refuted to obey an officer. He could
only be forced to return to the camp
at the muzzle of a revolver. To-dny
one of the men went to Gardiner and
requested to tee the remains of the
lady who died yesterday, claiming to
know her aeveral years ago. While in
the room with1 the corpse he stole a
gold watoh and valise and a sum of
money. The fellow was captured by
the citizen!, a rope wai placed around
hii neck and the fellow nearly lynched
before he would confess where he had
concealed the stolen property. It waa
recovered and the private turned over
to the garrison authoritiet for military
discipline.    .

THE WHEAT DEFICIT.
New YoRRi,jtugi''30.—The rimes
ban a long cable which estimates that
the old world needs 70 to 80 million
bushels of wheat more than the harvests of the year will produce. To put
it in another way, the countries which
always have to buy wheat must thii
year buy 370,000,030 bushels, while
countries raising more than they consume will have about 22o,000,C00 fauth-
e'stoiell. Tho storms of the: put
week hive greatly damaged tlie wheat
in England and the great wheat producing country of France, which it
was thought a week ago would export
68,000,000 bushels will now have, it is
estimated, to import 80 to 90 million.
Algiers cannot supply much on account
of the gratihopperi. The but estimates put the surplus of the United
States and Canada at 103 million; Russia ninety million; India 35 million.
But all sorts of stories are coming from
Ruttia that ire unfavorable. In London bread hai come up one penny per
loaf.
Tha potato crop in England ind in
Ireland ita partial failure, and great
distress it. believed to be certain.
The Times summarizing,reporti from
all parti of the U.S. say wo' have
enough wheat for home consumption
but not a great dell to spare.

the following il8F,cliptiori of a railway ana traffic bridge over the Mis:
sissippi river at St. Louis, Miss.,
cannot fail to be of interest to our
readers in the city and district, in
view of the grand bridge that in a
few years ehall span tho noble Fraser
at thii city, and bind both city and
district still more closely together.
An exchange, the Scenlijic American,
lays: "The beautiful bridge built
by Captain Eads over the Mississippi river at St. Louis, bold in it! design and excellent in its execution,
is an object of admiration to all who
visit it; but the impression of its importance, says Scribner't Magazine,
would be greatly magnified if the
part below the surface of tho water,
whioh bears the massive towers, nnd
which extends to a depth twice as
great as the height of tho pier above
the water, could be visible. There
are three steel arches, the center ono
having a span of 520 feet, und each
side arch a span of 502 feet. Each
span has four parallel arches or ribs,
and eaoh orch is composed of two
cylindrical steel tubes, eighteen
inches in exterior diameter, one acting as the upper and the other as
the lower chord of the arch. The
tubes are in seetions, each twelve
feet long, nnd connected by screw
joints. The thickness of the steel
forming the tubes runs from one and
three-sixteenths to two and one-
eighth inches. These upper and
lower tubes ore parallel and twelve
feet apart, connected by a single
system of diagonal bracing. The
double tracks of the railroad run
through the bridge adjacent to the
side arches of the elevation of the
highest point of the lower tube. The
carriage road and footpaths extend
the full width of the bridge, and are
carried, by braced vertical posts, at
an elevation ' of twenty-three feet
above the railroad. The clear headway is fifty-live feet above ordinary
high water. The approaches on
each side are masonry viaducts, and
the railway connects with the city
station by .tunnel nearly a mile in
length. The great tubular ribs were
built out from each side of a pier,
the weight on one side acting as a
counterpoise for the construction on
the other side of the pier. They
were thus gradually and systematically projected over the river, without support from below, till they
met at the middle of the span, when
tbe last central connecting tube was
put in place by an ingenious mechanical arrangement, and the arch
became self-supporting."
. In the matter of the memorial of
the board oi trade protesting against
the cancellation of the North Arm
and Port Moody mail services, we
would, in referring again to the subject of the North Arm service, urge
upon the authorities the claims of
this route to a tri-weekly or daily
service. That the service should lie
cancelled altogether is manifestly
unjust In previous articles we
have shown the superiority of such
a service as is asked when compared
with the service via Vancouver.
We have, of course, nothing whatever to say against a mail service
between Vancouver and the North
Ami, which is a necessary convenience for both places. What we do
objoct to, is the endeavor to make
the one service; besides fulfilling its
legitimate function, take the place
of direct mail communication between this oity and the North Arm,
to the detriment and, inconvenience
of bath communities. By way of
further illustration we quote from
an article on this subject in TmiOo-
lumbian of July 24: "Letters passing between here and the North Ann,
and vice versa, via Vancouver, if
mailed on Vancouver and re-distributed thero for these points, as we
■upposa is the intention, will not
reach their destination at either
place until tlie day after mailing,
as things are at present. On the
Other hand, with a direct mail between this city and tho North Arm
settlement, about an hour and a
half only would be required for the
passage of letters cither way," It
does not require any further argument to show tho superior advantages and convenience of such a service, so far as this eity and the
North Arm is concerned, when coin-
pared with that via Vancouver. We
understand that Oapt. Cooper, of the
Fairy Queen, who makes daily trips
between this place and the North
Ann with his small but well-appointed steamer, has signified his
willingness to carry a daily mail between these points for the trifling
annual subsidy of 9260 or thereabouts. Such a service would be a
great convenience, and the Dominion authorities, it is to be hoped,
will lee their duty in the premise*,
and act accordingly. In the matter
of tha Port Moody mail, a service of
some sort should have been maintained. There is a permanent settlement at that place, and •■ the
centre of the settlement is about a
mile from the railway atation, the
daily stage service to this oity which
wa« guaranteed {by the small subsidy
heretofore granted was a great convenience to the community.
We republished an item from the
Kiunloops Sentinel tho othor day
which stated that "a petition, with
the signatures of fifty-five persons,
asking for ' an investigation into'
school matters, regarding > the np-'
pointment of teachers oh permits
was sent from Kiunloops last week
to the Hon, John Robson, minister
of education," Katnloops, it seems,
has been having a case in point recently, which it appears the people
of the interior town cannot settle
among themselves. The trouble appears to be that the board of school
trustees at Katnloops filled u vacancy
in the public school at that place by
appointing a teacher who hold n permit only, when there were applications from teachers holding regular
provincial certificates. On this
statement of the case, there does not
appear to be any prima facie grounds
of complaint. Permits, it is well
known, are granted by the provincial educational authorities in certain
instances—iu the ense, for example,
of a teacher arriving in the province
shortly after or some time before the
annual teachers' examination. Permits havo been granted, we believe,
when agreeable to the school distriot
concerned, to enable a teacher who:
failed to tako a certificate at the examination to hold his situation for
another term. The granting of these
special privileges in the latter instance cited can hardly be justified,
except for the reason that good
teachers were scarce, or for some
other exceptional cause. It savors
too much, in the ordinary course of
things, of injustice to those who
work hard and attain standing as
duly certificated teachers. In the
former case—granting permits to
new arrivals, for the interim between
teachers' examinations — nothing
more than a commendable fairness
and consideration is exercised, we
believe, towards strangers, who may
happen to belong to the profession,
coming amongst us; und such teachers, other things being equal, should,
we think, be held to be equally eligible with those possessing provincial certificates. The teacher who
has been appointed to the Kamloops
school, under a permit, is a young
lady, Miss Pearson by name, who,
we understand, has comparatively
lately come to the province, and, in
the ordinary course of things, it
would appear not to be out of order
that she should be granted a permit
and obtain an appointment. But it
is said that she had ample time after arriving iu the country to attend
the lust teachers' examination and
obtain n certificate. Furthermore,
tho young lady is known to be related to one of the Kamloops school
trustees, and also to the minister of
education, and it is stated she presumed on thoso influential connections to secure both permit and appointment. There are generally
two sides to a question. This is one
side. We have not heard the other.
If the case is precisely as stated, it
does not take a man with a glass
eye to detect a pretty clear oase of
nepotism. There would seem to be
grounds enough at any rate for an
investigation such as is asked for by
the Kamloops petitioners.

At ft o'clock ywtarday afternoon, tbo
hottest hour of the day, a woman paused
in front of the big plate glass windows of
ft dry goods house.   Within, on a stack of
parasols, lay a placard.   It read: ''Mid-
anmmer Clearing  Sale."    She looked,
visibly hesitated, went. in.   The whim
seised mn to follow her, scenting tbe trail
of a barpalii hunter.
Once inside' tho door she halted. In
frout of her tho elevator shaft bore this
.upend: "Carpets laid free until August
15." To her right was a long counter decorated thus: "Bankrupt sale; sacrifice
prices; do uot let thischanco escupe you."
To her left wast another fiouuter with the
invitation: "Choice,o.f the.i;e trimmed
hats,$-3.50." Farthefciw-n thestorewas
a central bazaar with swinging sign:
"All bathing suits marked down." -A-
vari colored counter tempted tho summer pMj '''iRliiiionB life- ytmr^riikprice,''
Summer wraps'niid jackcls in lacs mid
jet were displayed on figures with explau-
. -ntory emblems: "As advertised, £3.19."
Over tlio stairs leading to the basement
was lettered: "Great sale in domestics today,". Upstnirs one could see gowns
hanging over the balustrade, fairly holding out their arms to be taken ami crying: "Costumes at rta\t .tae cost of 'm*
potfatidn'." I.nces'were "Tali'ly given
away," and at the wash counter prices
. were "slaughtered without, mercy." Tht
city goes through such a season twice a
year. -   " ■'.   i f
The woman whom"! had followed was
slim, 80,.bright-eyed. The light of resolution dawned in her face, Iliad hot
mistaken my victim. She walked to the
.-elevator. -Jlerei aaV.n group of women
""wearily fanulug" themselves', waiting for
ii chance to rise. Wo rose! to the -top
floor. Here salesmen were .unrolling carpets. Carpets in August,; My woman

wl. .lithe had priced in June for $2.17
- and bad gone without when mosquitoes
wero thickest, waiting for tlio bargain
sales. She inspected the lace curtains,
, turned her back on them, wheeled about
aga.ti and bought a pair which she had
previpurly sniffed tt, the change 6% heart
bting tCcoted by the clerk's assurance
that, they were going "ridiculously low."
When she went down by the elevator 1 followed by tbe stairs ami found

I found myself cheek by jowl' with two
ot tier women buying children's dresses in
embroidered lawn at $1.50 the dress.
They had no children, It appeared,but the
things, though tumbled, were "so cheap"
aud they could And some use for them
soma time.
' My woman meanwhile had snapped up
nn unconsidered trifle of a glimmer shawl
at $2.13, "was fMSl the first of the seasbn"
Apd was now laying in ehoet at the "semiannual clearing sale of broken lota" until
I took her for a professional pedestrian.
Here I lost track of iter for n time, hut
was solaced by the enthusiastic brlc-a
brne hunters in the art. room who wero
possessing themselves of ibe left-overs in
rose jars and pottery jugs nt half rates.
It was on the main floor that (I recovered my original bargain hunter with one
hand on a piece of Hsmjbuteifldgtug at 4

lace, ihe reduced the surplus stock of lib*

bought a hat whioh did not suit her complexion for ,0,Ml because It waa a bargain.

The cable announcement the other day
that 'young Wl.'.i'tini Waller Phelps
Dodge, nephew of the New Jferscy.st-.'es-
ni.iu nnd n meniber of one of the New
Ytn-k's'proticV: t nnd wealthiest families,
had married'n tlrcila rl.ler i:i. I.0111I011 did
not cause one branch of the family to
shed any tears. Inr. an the S'okes family, whoari- so closely canticctcil with tho
Phelps and Doi'.^'ca Ihat'they are like one
family... Tho.cruel hnnxof young Dodge
lust winter ill advertising iu tlie dully
utiYspupers th t ho had married his
cousin, Miss Stokes, an heiress to 13,000,-
000, only milled to au already bitter feeling existing between''the'Stokes and
PJujIpa families. . ..^..
To outward appearances It seems that
flic two families are on good terms, bnt
their Intimate acquaintances know that
this ia not 11 fact. It Is an interesting
Btoryand I wonder how It never before
found it! way into print. It begins at a
tlml when Ed. S.Stokea, the popular and
generous proprietor of tha Hoffmann
House, killed .Mm Flsk.. Unto the Urn.
of this aa(d itlfair Stokea' family 'Wire
greatly proud of hlni. Owing to Flsk's
well-known .en.roslty- 'and popularity
public opinion was for a time.Inclined
ngnluet Stokes. His-family and friends'
were not. alow to see this and they worked
hard to oqiutlcructit. Xed Slokee' uncle, the head u' tbe family, went to Amoa
K110, the owner of the Fifth avenue Hotel aud the most of the property-about
Madison Square, and asked him to use'
hja Influence in saving his nephew from,
conviction of niurder in the first degree,
Mr, Euo had married Into the Phelps
family, lila.wifo being- a lister of tbe late
Governor JohuS. P..dps, Missouri.
"I want you to talk nnd use all your Influence," .urged millionaire Phelps, "to
change public opinion. This young man
Is of tho same blood us 1 am, and should
ho be convicted' of niurder tbo disgrace ..
would be terrible to my family', and your'
family and mine nre to closely connected that "tbey are like one."
Mr. Euo said thero would be no need
of trying to change public opinion uli.
believed that Ed. Stokea was guilty of
thu offense, churged against him. Mr.
Pile!;, trUM* to show that there wm provocation,- ill" was afterwards proven In
court, and said that If hll nephew cam.
nut of the scrape all right he would allow
by the life be would lead In future that
he was not the black-hearted peraon bla
anemic, tried to inuk. him appear, and
would win th. respect'and #H|im othui
fellowman. " a   ' ■.      .'. *
But Mr. Euo positively refuted hit Influence, "I believe It la my duty al a good
cltlieu to refuse my influence, to aid a
man In escaping u punishment that tbo
-law of- the land says he deserves," wis
Mr. Euo'• Anal answer.
A few yearl filter Ed. Stoke, waa a free
man,making wonderful strides to re-.s-
tabllsh himself ui.d making friends ot th.
leading men of! the country. John C.
Euo, ton ot tbe man who refuted to
sympathize with Stokes, had turned ouc
to be a defaulter In the meantime. He
wuecasbler otitic Ki.'ih Avenue Hank ill
which Stokes' uncle ivas'on. of the directors. The. elder E.m mail.'-good the deficiency and suppi'M-il 1 he maltercinild be
easily fixed -in. Ail tIt, directors were
personal frlei. 1-,'iif his und when heejioke
•of .11 butone. of ihi.lu he found he hail
their sympathy. The only other one waa

I suffered from Constipation, and, con.

I took st the suggestion of a friend, have

Mr. Cox and Mr. Jaffray will take the

Mr, Sheehan, of Oscoda, Mich., writes,
"I have used Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil on
for different diseases, and found it to be
just as you recommended. It has done
justice to me evfiy time, and it is tlio
best Oil for horses I ever used." Observe
that the name "Dr. Thomas' Eeleotric
Oil" ii on the front of the wrapper, at
there an imitations of It,
and a few seconds afterwards the advance guard appeared and by u skilful
movement took up its position some
dittance in rear of the line for the jiur-
i-.-so of reforming and lending nails-
tance to the main body if necessary.
'.'od arid Jack retired au eighth of a
mile in good order and a council of
war wm held, which resulted in • de-
ciiiou tb advance all along the line
The force was theri extended in ekirin-
isUng order and the sigual given to
advance,' with orders for the men to
take advantage of ell cover and not expose theraielvei to unnecessary danger.
Obedient to the slightest command,
Tod Wot nnn half way up an immense
iir, Jaek oconpied n- commanding poii-
t'nn on tho lee Bido Wa high boulder,
Fred by a capital strategic movement,.
held the key tn a hollow log, and Pat,
after a auccossful manoeuvre, took in
exalted ind prominent p, sition lome
distance up the mountain tide. Thui
tituated the daring force was ready to
engage anything that could reach them.
In a few eeconds the bear appeared
end was greeted with a rattling volley
from the death dealing rifles of the intrepid hunters, which, however, did
not aeem to woaken bruin'a onward
march. Seeing the fight would be
long and stubborn, Fred vacated the
log and retired to the roof of Balcarra
House where he waa shortly reinforced
by Jack, while Pat moved a peg higher up the mountain and Tod chose a
more lofty branch from which to direct hia withering lire. Thus arranged
fire waa reopened and maintained
steadily and with vigor for 2 hours and
i5miiintci,at the enp of which time the
whole face of affairs wat changed by an
unexpected assault by the bear on the
tree held by Tod. Despite the hot fire
directed Against him, Bruin clambered
up tJiBityiee, and was aoon within a-fair
feet of Tod, wlioae latt hour had apparently arrived. But it wat now, in
the moment, of extreme danger, that
tho cool, daring courage of our hunter
made itself apparent. Slopping on to
un aiipaveiuly Bound, but rotten
branch, and grasping a itrong limb
above, Tod mored cautiously out several puces, allowing tho atroug limb to
bear the weight of his body. The
bear wit deceived by thit ruse de guerre
und stepped boldly out on the rotten
branctj..; There was n snap, a crush
aud a howl of rage and despair that
awakened every echo fortever miles
up and down the valley and caused
Pat to lose his hold and roll several
hundred feet down, the hill. Then all
waa quie! and the hunters knew bruin
was dead, the result of his temerity
against such dauntleas hunters. And
then the heroet gathered together and
embraced, and wept tears of pride at
the manly heroiain of each other; and
before leaving the t'pot where their

The Home of Evangeline.
Poelle BenilaUee.ee. au raules—The
Apprinan if Ihe Modern village.
Lo»«rt of Longfellow will read with
intereit tho following entertaining account of Grand Pre/the home of
"Evangeline" and "Gabriel," as it appears to a touriat of the present doy,
from tbe pen of our Halifax correspondent, a former and well-known
rritish Columbian:
GnAsn Pee, N.S., Aug. 18.—To the
traveller, in whoso .breast the poetic
feelings stirred up by Longfellow's
Evangeline remain, Iho mime of
Grand Pre it inseparably connected
with ihe sweetett and most holy
thought!, At that magic name ia repeated lo him hii mind ruthet back to
the quiet French village pictured tu
beautifully by Longfellow, Bleeping its
happy rural life away by the side of
the alto sleeping bnsin of Minus. He
pictures to himself the penuliar-Btiapod.
dormer-windowed French house, standing iu a row along the village street,
each lhaded in front by the Normandy
poplar—a perfect picture of rural.felicity, in hit mental vision he aee] the
"fore-it primeval',' standing dark and
grim behind' the peaceful ipot, but
forming n back-ground which bring!
into tplendid relief the quaint village
and the stretch ol dyked land "spread-
away and unfeneed o'er the plain,"
while far to the northward the blunt',
bold face of Blomidon, partly obscured
by the tea-fog, ibowl ' itself. Ashe
bioka inure closely he mentally discern!
the smoke riajng lazily from Basil's
imithy it the old man toils away at
hia pesceful,aybc;ilioii. Looking down
the vi|hige|tpdi, may chance, he imagine! lie ten Pore Felician'going his
regular rounds among hit Hock; but n
sound of merry laughter makes him
turn, aud in io doing he recognizes
Evangeline in "her Norman cap and
her kirtle of blue" accompanied by
Gabriel, both of them appearing as
happy as it it the lot of mortals to be
in this world. Such perchance may
be the mental photograph whioh the
reading of Evangeline hits engraved on
our minds. But, nlas! at we look at'
the place to-day we can Buy wilh the
poet, "nought but tradition remains
of th. beautiful village of Grand Pre."
Being tempted "to take a few days'
rest, I know of no place in Nova Scotia
bo charmingly "made sacred with sor
rows unsaid," and accordingly determined to visit this spot. Had I expected to lee anything tending tu briint
to mind the pretty village whioh existed here 150 jean ago, J had beon die
appointed. To one unacquainted with
the poetio.association! of the place, the
modern village of Grand Pre looks like
any other quiet country village. It
has tb, customary "pioneer" .tore nt
tho "orose-roadt,'.'and further up tho
afreet the lately-built opposition establishment; the village pust-ollicu with
ita pretty pott-mistress whose smiling
face greet, you aa you enquire for "n
letter from home"; the smithies, where
industrious 'young men follow in the
tteps of Tubal Gain and love their
trade for iti intimate connection with
the romance of Grand "Pre; the quiet
country church standing on a small
knoll as a tort of guardian angel watching' over the spot;; the neat cemetery
near by in whioh the "forefather!
of the hamlet, sleep.." for oven in this
scene of peaceful boatity "the dead
are here!". Oh, what u change from
Ihe buatle and dult und boat of the
city! How much nearer man seeuis lo
be hi. to Creator when worshipping ill
thia unpretentious village church than
he doet in the magnificent city cathedral I And then the cordial hand-shaking and well-withidg and enquirlea
after each oilier1! health. Oh, how
different from the sullen itare which
meet! one in the cityi
libs, rf'farett piiuwval" of'; whioh
Longfellow ipeaki hiii long lince disappeared before the industry of iuc-
ceuive generation!. But the beautiful
river Glapareau (the river of Gaapar)
poura its waters- into the Basin ai it
did iu dayi gone by, reminding ut at
one moment of the happy time when
"Many a lover In ibe moonlight,
Speaking lender words anil low.
Bought the path across the meadow
Toward tlie quiet Gaapareau."
But all tho recollections it producei
are nut of thit sweet- nature, for we'
tutu lo think of the timo long ago
when "the English ships rode in the
Gasparcu't mouth" and mournfully
say with.the;oe<.
"And no sadder sceuo
Evorgave ltileif to story,
Than tlli.t scene of wreck ami woe,
When the English ships weighed anchor
Inthemon'liofausper'cut!.''
The totul population of tlie village
to (In* il about 150 louls. I speak
now of the village—not including the
vast atretohoa of rich farming lend,
thickly populated, which turround the
village on ell .idea. The people ire
moBily descendants, of the old Puritans
who in 1700, live vcuro after tho expulsion of the Auudiaua, .migrated
from Connecticnt and 'ho neighboring
Snuei and re-settled'. thi. lection..
They are entirely "anoiher race with
other customs ind language," totally
different from the French, Yet aome
of them loojningiy preserve the innocent ciiiiplicity.i.f the. old Acadian..
For example; only yesterday iu speaking to a young lady of thii place about
B.C. and iu Inhabitant! .he asked me
with the greatest possible naivete it the
mon of B.C, hid not been ill trani-
ported there, and if the women were
nut all Indiant. Did you ever hear
audi talk) It il aaid that "westward
the alar of empire take, its way," but
don't you, think Mr. Editor, that wo
ought lo raise a fund for the promulgation nf knowledge among the people
of Grand Pre!   '
In another letter I shall toll you
