The ladies of Blank church were
packing a box of clothes to send to
tho wife of a western missionary.
Mrs; A.—"My dear Mrs.B., -what
wm you be thinking of to send off
those lovely stockings of yours?
Tlio very, latest color, toot" Mrs,
B.—"It does break my heart to part
with tliem, and I shouldn't think
of it if I had not just read something about tho dye stuff they use
to get this particular shade being
liable to poison one frightfully."
'•Oh, horrors ! Lot's get them out of
our hands quick! Hero, there's
room for thom right down in this
corner."
The United States does not .got
quite all the rascals assisted to emigrate from European countries. A
young man convicted of felony in an
English court recently was let off
from punishment on his friends
promising to send him to Canada at
once. The Dominion is therefore
playing the part of a penal colony
for Great Britain, as well as a placo
of refuge for American boodlers,—
Am, paper. But Canada haa recently mado suoh arrangements that the
American boodler must remain
where he belongs, and the big republic scoops in by far tlio largest
amount of the European scum.
M, Topinard has been making a
statistical enquiry into tho colors of
tho eyes and hair in France, and from
his ono hundred and eighty thousand observations lie deduces many
interesting results, one of the most
curious boing that where tho race iB
formed of a mixture of blondes and
brunettes the hereditary blood coloring comes out in the oyes, and the
brunette clement reappears in tho
hair. To this tendency probably is
to bo attributed u combination of
light hair with dark eyes. Soveral
observers have asserted that tho
American people, who aro pre-eminently a mixed race, are becoming a
dark-haired and blue-eyed nation,
and if this be truo, such a development must be owing to tho working
of tlie law formulated by M, Topinard.—Ex.
Mr. E. H. Butler, of tho Buffalo
JJcxos, iu the course of .1 lecturo ad*
dressed to the New York Press asso-
ciation,said: Tho libel lawof the state
of New York is English in its origin;
it is Russian in its operation. It
hampers honest journalism by a
censorship fit for the Czar's government, and comparable to nothing in
law short of tho 'administrative'
jurisprudence of St. Petersburg and
Siberia, lb assumes guilt on the
part of evory man accused under it,
just as the Russian 'police' system
does. It invites blackmail by mak
ing needy lawers partners in the
proceeds of the suits brought for
'settlement'. The present law in
this state is a series of ill-connected
links of legislation, a veritable crazy-
quilt, in which no two patches harmonize." One can almost imagine
that Mr. Butler wns speaking about
the B. C. libel Jaw.
It seem to be almost decided
that the pope Bhall leave Roma and
seek a sanctuary in Spain, and a
good many people are asking, what
will bo done then? What will becomo of the many thousands of ro-
Hgious teachers, said to bo one-
fourth of the population of Rome,
and what will be the fate of the
treasures of the Vatican 1 In going
to Spain his holiness will he going
to a country redolont of medievalism and entirely out of the current
and throb of modern lifo with its
aims of progress and development.
The Spaniards are polite, never hurrying themselves, and they are too
dignified to bo business-like, They
have preserved tho bull fight but
have neglected oducation. In the
days when the inquisition aud tho
auto-da-fe wero in full swing there
was a grim power about Spain of
whieh it has beon shorn. Intellectually speaking, the light is dim in
Spain. It may bo prosumod that
the pope will endeavor to make it
religious. In that sort of "dim ro-
ligious light" tho ohurch of Rome
has always flourished best.—Hie.

.SENSIBLE TALK.
Kingston, July 11.-—The Canadian
Freeman, a Catholic organ, has over a
column of editorial on Rev. John Mac-
Kio'e fiery sermon to the Orangemen
un Sundry last, malting personal reference to Mr. MacKio. It askB "evory
right thinking Protestant to read carefully through tho rigmarole of un-
christain and uncharitable 'boah,' nnd
givo an honest unbiassed opinion uot
only as to whether, it is speaking of
Ood through tho mouth of a minister
of God's, but ns to whether from a
social point of view, it iH good for tho
community at largo that this man
should stand forth in the pulpit and
endeavor under tho cloak of religion
ti stir tho muddy water and create and
ferment disorder and ill-feeling ba-
twecn two bodies ot citizons willing
and axious to hvo as God would have
thom live and bo at peace with all
men. Wo feel confident tho majority
of right thinkim* Protestants, although
unwilling publicly to condemn Mac*
Kto's utterances, will agroo in acknowledging tho bad taste and untimely delivery."

disturbance.
SULLIVAN AllUESTEl).
Washeiiville, Tenn., July 11.—
John L. Sullivan was arrested here
this morning on a requisition from the
governor of Mississippi. Sullivan ia
in the city hall. Cleary, Johnson and
and Muldoon aro also locked up.
When the train pulled into tho city
several oflicers boarded the car and at-
tempted to arrest Sullivan. The hit-
tor resisted, und drew back to knock
down tlio policemen, when chief Clark
stuck a pitt'jl in h\n, face aud told him
if ho struck ho (Clark) would kill him.
The ofiiccrs neit grabbed Charley
Johnson, of Brooklyn, Sullivans backer, win.- resistod vigorously but finally
began to cry with pain. Curing this
Ecrimmago Muldoon sat quietly by
and, was undisturbed. Cloary, Sullivans other second, hid during the excitement. Only Johnson and Sullivan
were detained, though tho others wero
wanted. Sullivan retninod Ex-Attorney Genoral Washington, who says
tho oflicers went beyond there authority and can't hold tho men. An im*
mcdittti attempt will bo made to get
the prisoners eut on writ of habeas corpus,

ElPaso, Texas, July 11.—The
regular passenger train on tho Mexican Contral 11. It., was ditched 5 miles
this side of Chihuahua last night, a
bridge giving way, tho underpinning
having boen washed out by a torront.
Twenty-five passengers wero injured
and two wero killed outright, a
guard in tho express car of Wells Far-
go &Co., and a passongor in a third
class coach. Conductor Jerry Sullivan had four ribs broken. The baggage car and third class coach were
telescoped, and tho sleeper thrown on
its side. Nono of tho passengers in
tho sleeper or first-class coaches wore
seriously injured. Most of tho injured wore in the third olass conch.
Nineteen of tho injured aro in the hospital nt Chihuahua.   Two hnvo died.
PENSION OFFICE TROUBLES.
Washinoton, July 10.—Much interest has developed hero to-day over
the rumors that serious trouble has
arisen botween tlio Pension Commissioner Tanner and Sooretary Noble,
nnd that tho resignation of tho former
is uot improbable. Theso rumors aro
tho outcome of a conference held lato
yestorday afternoon in tho oflioo of
Secrotary Noble at which the secretary, Assistant Secretary Bussey and
Commissioner Tanner woro present.
Genoral Bussey says lhat matters pertaining to the conduct of the pension
officers were considered during the
conference, ns somo things had occurred in bho conduct of that vast department whioh wero not entirely satisfac
tory. The mattor of Tanner's resignation, ho said, was not mentioned
last evening. Whether there was any
truth in the rumor that his resignation
had boon requestod General Bussey
could not say, and as for tho details
on that point ho referred the reporter
to Secretary Noble, who could speak
knowingly and authoritatively respecting the matter. Pension Commissioner Tanner treats the matter of his ro*
ported resignation with jocularity. He
says ho could not attempt to contradict
all newspaper reports concocted about
himsolf or his department.
MANSLAUGHTER.

DEATH OF MR. F. J. BARNARD.
One ol Brlllkh Colatubla-a Earliest Pioneers 1'aiies to His Rest.
Francis Jones Barnard, ex-M.P. for
Yalo district, died at Duval cottage at
5 o'clock yesterday morning of paralysis, in the Gist year of hii age. The
deceasod was one of tho fint pioneers
of British Columbia, in whose history
ho has played a prominent part. He
wsb born in the city of Quebeo in 1839,
his father, Isaac Barnard, being a U,
£. loyalist. Ho came to British Oolumbia in 1869, during the gold excitement, and took up his residence in
Yalo. He established in 1861 an ex*
press line to Cariboo; at first carrying
the express on his hack, afterwards by
pony express. In 1803 this was
merged into tho Barnard express and
stage line, carrying the mails and
treasure from Barkerville to Yale. In
1878 this was incorporated as tho B.
0. Express Co., and the business was
later on acquired by his eldest son, Mr.
Frank Barnard, and Mr. S, Tingley.
In connection with tho late James
Hamilton and S. Tingloy the decoased
was tho founder of the present Victoria Transfer Co., ono of the largest
on tho coast.
The deceased in 1860 wss elected ta
tho legislative assembly of British Oolumbia for Yale district, holding office
until the term prior to the province entering confederation in 1871. The do-
ceased took an active part in the confederation movement and was a member of the Yale convention which sat in
1804. In 1874 he was awarded the
contract for the conitruction of the
C. P. R. telegraph line from Edmonton to Cache Creek, but this work wss
novor completed owing tothe alteration in the route.
In 1878 Mr. Barnard was returned
as tlie representative for Yale-Koote-
nay district in the Dominion parliament
on tho appointment of the sitting member, Mr. Dewdney, tothe office of Indian commissioner. He was re-elected at the succeednig general election
in 1882, being opposed by Mr, James
Robinson and Mr F, G. Vernon, In
1886, owing tu failing health, he did
not again seek re-election, and since
that time has not been engaged in
active businesa,
Tho deceased leaves a wife who has
been a mout faithful helpmeet during
his eventful career, and during the last
years of his life has boen mos) devoted
in hor attention to the many requirements of an invalid. Three children
nud a brother and sister also mourn his
death. Tho formor are Mr, Frank
Barnard, M. P., and Mr. Geo, H.
Barnard, Victoria, and Mrs. J. A.
Mara, of Kamloops, The latter are
Mr. James T. Barnard, of Hamilton,
Ont., who has been in the city during
the past several weeks, aud Mrs. G, A.
Sargison, of Victoria.
The funeral will take place to-morrow (Friday) morning, from his lato
residenco, nt 10:30 a. m. The Pioneer
Society, of whioh deceased was an
honored mombor, will attend in a
body.—Colonist of to-day.

trading branches was defeated by 30,-
016 shares against 22,786. Mr. Mo-
Lean declared: that i apart'from the

holders favored hia proposal, though
the board's votes swamped the poll.
The third resolution, respecting the inspection of tho register of shareholders,
waa alao defeated in ita present form.
The board, however, accepted tho
principle of tho motion.

Thunday Kvenln*-, July 11. 1889.
It would seem an if tlio Fates hud
it in for unhappy Johnstown. A
gliustly city of tho dead, it' was
making a bravo but pitiful struggle
to recover from its indescribably terrible visitation of tho Itlstof May
last, when tho tiro fiend broko loose
and nearly completed the destruction of property wliich tho floods
had left As if this was not enough,
two lesser floods have torn through
the scarred and ruined town since,
the last occurring on Tuesday night,
when buildings and bridges wore
carried away by tho rain swelled
torrents and quite a number of unfortunate human victims swept to
their tragic death. Such a persistent fatality, although doubtless
but the logical sequence of cause and
effect, can hardly fail of inducing
feelings and reflections of the
gloomiest in the minds of tho hapless
survivors of doomed Johnstown.
These unforturnate people will certainly requiro all the sympathy and
help that their neighbors and the
human family generally can spare
them from its store, It is almost
impossible for those in infinitely
happier circumstances to begin to
realize tho full forco and extend of
the awful calamities that have fallen
upon Johnstown and its people.
written about us as lias been recorded of Washington's three flame
swept cities ■within ouo mouth. It
is a matter for congratulation, from
more than one point of view, that
the water works scheme was bo
promptly and heartily endorsed by
Uio people, nnd is now being so
onorgqtioftlly pushed by tho council,
The Donald Truth, in referring
to a communication to oue of the
Winnipeg dailies, complaining of
the high rate charged by the O.P.R.
for hauling lumber from Keewatin
to Whitewood, a distance of 382
miles, and stating that the rate on
tea from Vancouver to Montreal is
but §50 or $GQ & car, and that the
company could afford to haul lumber tlie 382 miles for $25 n car, the
rate being $100, says : While the
rato on tea cuts no figure in the
question, the present rate on lumber
is too high. If a flat rato of $100
a car was given from Heaver to Regina, every farmer along tho lino of
the O.P.R. cculd afford to purchase
lumber to fence his hind, and erect
propor buildings for stock. Fires
have destroyed millions of feet of
good lumber iu this section in the
past, and tho work of destruction
will continue until littlo timber is
left standing within easy reach of
the railroad. The company are running hundreds of empty cars cast-
ward every month, whicli, if a different policy was adopted, might as
woll go loaded. Every dollar expended by farmers in improvements
on lands tributary to tlie O.P.R. will
be of benefit to that company in tho
long run. Whero thero is now 1
sawmill on the Oolumbia there should
be 10, and whero 1 man is employed
100 could be profitably worked.
That would mean half a dozen
freight trains east every cloy, and a
larg'.-ly increased business westward.
But then, farmers and newspapers
probably know all about railroading
theoretically, and but little practically. Anyway, the O.P.R, does
not seem to net on tho advice given
them so' gratuitously by the two
classes above mentioned.
Washington's lirst year of statehood is being marked by a scourge
of fire in a most unmistakable manner, whether such  a coincidence is
to bo taken us a good omen or not.
Seattle's terribly destructive conflagration, a   littlo   over a month ago,
was followed in about two weeks by
a hardly less   sweeping   and disastrous hurricane of flame in tlio well
known, and  of late years growing,
town of Vanoouver, on the Oolumbia Rtver, and now, one of tho lirst
dutios of the constitutional convention,  which   met   at   Olympia the
other day tu draft a constitution for
the new state, wus to pass a rcsolu
tion  of  sympathy with the mayor
and people of EUensburg, a thriving
town in the interior of Washington
which on the 4th of tho month was
as nearly swept out of existence us
its   big   sister   of Seattle a month
earlier, the estimated loss being §2,*
000,000.   As in Seattle, it was the
business part of the town that was
destroyed,  the    residenco  portion
escaping.   The water  supply also
gave  out  in the latter us in the
former case, and  the  flames   had
their own way to   a great  extent
after tho fire had got fairly started,
Wooden   buildings, of which there
were  a   considerable   number,   of
courso added to the unfavorable circumstances of the occasion, and a
brisk breeze assisted materially to
spread thu fire rapidly from its starting point.'   Tho news comes that
the stalwart Ellensburgers, like the
dauntless   Seattleites, are  not dis
couragod by the   disaster that has
overtaken their town, but aro sotting hopefully, about building a new
and better one.   While sympathizing with our stricken sister cities—
. if guch cheerful and philosophic unfortunates  ore  proper subjects for
sympathy—we will  do well to bo
prepared for our "trial by fire,"   It
is to be hoped that it may not catch
us untfrour much-needed and «nex-
coptionable  water works system is
completed, or it is to bofearedia
very similar story would have to bo
War;; and rumors of wars! Tlio
air that coinos wafted from Europe
begins to smell sulphury. No one
would be much surprised to hour the
ropoit tit tho concussion at any time.
Tha chronic tension among tlio powers is experiencing one of its periodic
strainings, and the open rupture,
which all view us an almost certain
contingency, gives signs of boing
near at hand. It would be difficult,
perhaps, on grounds of good sound
reason, to explain why war is inevitable. Human passions—avarice, jealousy, ambition, revenge, cupidity—Ute desire fora change oven,
and "pure cusseduess" on tho part
of some, and tlio national honor and
self defence on tho part of others,
tire potent factors nmong tho nations
to-dtiy, as in lho past, and are sufficient to account primarily for any
war, if only an immediate valid pretext can bo discovered, or, failing,
made to order. Then, too, thero is
tlie fighting instinct and the thirst
for military glory, which, not being
gratified ior a considerable interval,
nations get iu that attitude and condition which, in speaking of individuals, is described as "just spoiling
for a light," Tho European powers
nro very much in that position
just now, and, more than that,
most of them are better pro-
pared for fighting than for keeping the peace, They would be
positively "put out" unless war soon
relieves their congestion and gives
exercise to their worked up muscle.
Russia particularly appears to work
on the principle that it has more to
gain than to lose by provoking war,
and is exciting Austria's jealousy
and alarm by mixing itself up unduly in Servian affairs, audit is hero
that tho mutch is likely to bo applied to the tinder. Once the crash
occurs, a general scramble and melee
on a grand scale is almost suro to
follow. Tho Pope's action the other
day, according to the dispatches, in
applying formally to the government of Spain for an asylum in that
country in caso of war, may betaken
us significant of tho probable
nearness and scope of the anticipated
"unpleasantness." If Wardbos come,
as appears probable, Great Britain
will very likely bo forced to take a
hand in it. Thero may even ho an
opportunity to test the patriotism
and loyalty of Canadians to the em
pire, and, wo darn say, in advance,
these will not be found wanting.

Tho blucest fool iu.Natur's 1mm that tolls his-

I've heen lettln' on 'tis malary, an' my slum*
mid*, whon I know
it's my conscience that's a hurtiu' an'   a

I've been a .-hirkiii' this boro thing lor thirty

An' I orto had this shaltln' up an' BOttlin' down

I'vo boon honest fur as nayln' goes, not a penny
do I owo,
nut tbo kind o' chcatin' that I dono was tho
kind that didn't show.
My mind Roes back to Hannur, when I fetched
her hero a bride-
No upplo bloom was sweeter, an' sho nusslefl

Liko slio though she had a right to, an1 could
trust mo without fear
For tbo love I nover hinted at for moro'n thirty

And I couldn't help a tbinkln*. watchln' out

DARBY AND JOAN.
Lovingly They Lived  Tosether,
and Together They Wed.
A apring rain wns falling gently, continuously, on Mrs. Truo'a garden. Tho
lately transplanted geraniums and po-
tuniau lifte-l thoir hoada gratefully to tho
warm shower und tho fuchsias and sweot
alyssum brightened undov its influence.
If tholr mistress could hnvo soon thom,
tlie, toe, would linvo rejoiced, for tho
flowers woro her children, potted darlings,
for whom no caro could bo too great, no attention too painstaking. Sho had housed
thom in winter, act thom out in summer,
trimmed, guarded, hung over them year
after year.
Involuntarily ono lookod for her mild faco
nt tho window, smiling out upon them, but
she waa not to bo soon. For tho second
timo only in lior life Mra Truo lay In her
chamber, too ill to heod tho pattering rain,,
or to think of tho nlanta growing so fast in
lho sweet, moist uir, ovon though, through
tho opon window of her room, both sounds
uud scents ontorcd freely, tho peacoful
sounds and healthful scenl3 of tho country.
It was very Btill in tho room whoro sho
lay; very still and ordorl-y. Tho old furnituro wna polishood aud specklcss; tho linen
as whito as snow; against tho pillows,
whieh had been a part of her bridal outfit,
rusted tho gray head, still noatly carod for,
and tho face, with its pallor, still woro a
look of kindly pationcc.
At her sido sot her husband, good Deacon
Truo, with bowed head and sad oyos; and
in his work-hardened hand ho hold hor
fccblo ono,
Presently a footstep soundod on tho muddy sidowalk outsido. Thon tho gate latch
clicked. Bomo ono walked up tho path and
tupped softly ou tho houao door, and was as
softly admitted.
But tho two, with thoir faces turned toward each othor, took no notice     >
"How is sho!" said tho neighbor downstairs who had "dropped in."'
tho emergency.
"How's hoi"
"Fairly boat out with griovin'. BcoraS'S
iflie hadn't no heart for oatih' or flrtakin'
or nothin', Just scttin' up thero along o'
her, and Uoldin' hor hand. I nover did soo
follts sot seek, storo hy each othor as thoy
do."
"Woll, thoy haven't nobody olso to set
storo by, you seo," said tho visitor, establishing herself by the flro, nnd holding out
two substantial foot to tho blazo.
" No, that's bo," assontcd Fldolia, taking
out hor knitting. " Now you juat mako
yourself comfortable, Mis' Clapp. I'm roal
glad to soo somebody. It's dreadful louo-
somo horo. Jost thoso two atill critters upstairs, and mo and tho cat down-stnlrs, and
nothin'on earth to do. Why, thero ain't so
much as n toaspoonful of dirt to clean up
nowhoro in tbo houao. I never did boo soch
liousoitoopln'."
"Sho was a master hand for cloanin',"
said Mra. Clapp, shukmghcr hoad thoughtfully, "and as I soy, thoro warn't no children to mako dirt."
"No, thoro warn't,hut thom plants aro
nbout as bad, to my thinkin', cluttering up
tho placo half tho yoar, and havin' to troll
around with a watorin" pot, and weddin'
and stowlu' ovor 'om tho rost of tho timo,
Bho took a sight of comfort in'om, though."
"Sho wns a roal good woman, Mis' Truo
was," sighed Mra. Clapp, spoaking already
In tho past tenso.
" And he's a powerful good tinxa,n
"Thero ain't no bettor."
•' Quoor bocIi good folks hadn't a family."
■' Woll, they did have ono child."
i "Dotolll Iuevorhoardof Itboforo. Boy
or girl?
" Boy, I believo; low, Mis' Truo was moBt
tickled to doath abdUt It. Sho was aB proud
as nn old lion with ono chick, but it didn't
last long. I was aent for to nurao hor,aud sho
waa a dreadful alek woman, out of her head,
just ravlug about that baby; goln'on about
what sho was moaning to do for It. Sho had
It *all planned out for a lifotimo how sho was
n*goln' to rock him to sleep nights, add how,
by and hy, ho was a-goin' to sot to tho tablo in
n high chair alongside ot hor, and, finally,
how lio was to tnlto tho farm and llvo with
thom always. My 1 sho was rauiblln' on so
fust ond a-amlllng away to horsolf, whilo
tho rost of us—mo and tho doctor ond tho
deacon—waa jest a-llghtln' for that bahy'B
lifo. And, at lost, whon Bho como to herself, thoro warn't nothin1 buta dead baby
to Bhow hor."^ fwi     -^       ■.'•*•'
"Door, dear I did alto tako on much?"

"Tako onl Well, not liko Bomo folks. HU8
dldh't aorocoh Hor cry, but sho jost tut-ned
ivffful whito, and her eyes got big and bad
lookin'; It tvas enough to ha'nt jfJhtQBCO
'om, and shoudvor said nothin' to ino; joat
moaned, and caught a hold of tho doacon'B
coat alcove as if Bho noodod somethln' to
comfort her. It did scorn's if hor heart waa
broke suro, Sho novor had no moro children."
"I guoBs that's why they've heen bo soton

"Well, ob to that, thorooln'tnotcllln'.
Homo few folks oro so-consldorato and
fflfilln'-hut mighty fow. Moat married

choros for her that a mortal man could do,
and sho's boon os sweot tohlra—woll, as
awootasonoofthomdovoe ft eooln' away
out thoro on tho bam."
"Hark I What's that?" sold Fidelia, holding up one hand, warnlngly,
It was only tho sound ot a wook voico,
nbovo, and a doepor voico trying to answer
soothingly.
WWlo tho two women had talkod tho aftornoon had waned. Tho rain scorned liko
fast fulling tears. Tlio ilowors, Bomo of
thom, woro cloalug drowBlly. Tlio Blmdows
woro deepening. Tho light green foliage of
n birch trco noar tho houao looked gray in
thu twilight. Through tho open cliambor
window abovo Bounded tho Bloopy trill of n
bird, wifely snuggled In hia nost undor lho
young loa-'OB.
Curlousiy enough this tondor noto alono
had tho power to rouao tho dying woman.
She had always beon in closo sympathy with
all rail', helplcsa things, flowers, young
birds and Infants. Now, iu Ucrcxlrcniily,
this weak cry pierced to her heart uud
woke her.
"Whoro's  thu baby!" sho whispered.
Why don't Micy bring the baby to mo?"
Hho was living over ugnhi hor only sickness. Sho fancicdhersolf youngoncc more,
young and illled wittui strange great happiness.
Tho years between had vanished. They
woro happy years, too, happier than most
people oujoy, for hor desires ho'd been eually
gridilled, hoi' ambitions wero of Uio simploBt
kind. To livo within their small means; to
lay aside u littlo each year; to keep the
house immaculate and the flowers thriving;
to know peaceful nights and quiet, uneventful dnys; to help a neighbor in trouble; to
sit in the village church regularly on Sim-
day!', and to bo suro that tlio grans grow
green ami tho white violets flourished over
a certain small mound In tho graveyard;
these were tho utmost limits of her hopes.
Her otio groat grief had grown to bo a
tender memory, and all tho days sinco imd
been pror.pcrous and sorono, unclouded by
one harsh look or word.
Nov;, suddenly, sho waa young again, a
young wifo in hor now borne, with all her
humblo household treasures now ubout her,
and this thrill of expectation in her breast.
"Wliero's tho baby? Why don't thoy
bring tho baby to mo?" sho repeated, eagerly.
Hor husband loaned forward, pressing
Ucr hand in both of hiB.
•'Tlio baby?" ho said; "whatbaby?" For
him tho sad present had swallowed up tho
past.
" Ou** bab-j*," aho -rolilq^rr-j].. with U lOOK
of rapture in her faded eyea. --; :-
"Oh, Lots!"
Ho bent his hoad still lower. That
shadowy child of their's seemed hardly moro
than a dream to him. Ho had never held it,
.. played with it, or talked to it In imagination, us alio had.       ■ ,
" His name is Josiah, for you," continued
tho dying woman, trying to tighten hor
clasp of tlio hand holding hors, aud looking
earnestly iip at him.
"Ho will bo littlo Jo. Perhaps hia oyos
arc liko yours; and ho will bo a good man
liko you, I hopo. Wo will teach him to bo
good, won't wo?"
"Yes, yes, Lois."
"But why don't thoy bring him to ino? 1
want so much to hold him, only once, for a
littlo whilo. I won't keophim long. I wont
to fcol his littlo hand on my faco and kiss
his littlo cheok. Pleaso toll them to bring
bun."
Hush, hush, Lois, dear."
Perhaps thev don't know" whoro his
clothes arc. I laid thom all ready in tho top
drawer of tho bureau in tho sporo room, his
little blue socks, and his shirt, nnd tho whito
siip-thcy said lio must wear slips at first,
not dresses. Evory thing's ready. A boy,
you suid.   Oh, do lot mo hold him now."
Tho old man groaned aloud und tried to
quiot hor, but without success. Out, doors
a wind was rising, a soft wind, fragrant
with tho bitter-sweet breath of blo-rioming
peach trees. It sighed at tho open window,
and swept u branch ot tho birch tree against
tho uppor panes.
Tlio deacon tried to riso to close the glass,
but sho moved uneasily as if toaltup in bed.
Ho put bis arum out to support her. Sho
hardly scorned to seo or fool them. Slowly
hor fuco grow radiaut with surprise and do-
light.
"Ah, you havo brought him to mo nt
last," sho cried, with hands outstretched.
"Quick, givo him to mo horo, closo to my
heart. Oh, how dear, how beautiful bo is.
I had not thought no would ho half so beautiful."
Sho hold her arms as if thoy encircled a
littlo form, and bent hor faco ovor them iu
tendcrost mother fashion.
"My babyl my baby!" she whispered,
Theu, with o sigh of utter content, sank
back upon her pillows.
Tho women downstairs lintoncd for tho
sound of voices to begin again, oxpooUng to
bo summoned, but no such summons came.
Night and darkness foil in the garden and
closed about tho house. Fidelia put a lamp
outsido tho chamber door and shut the door
n--ii..'-j.     au. n1nHnn,1 ■.*,....--- I <•■-- <- -*-..!--.- v
Mra, Truo seemed to bo asleep, hor husband, with bis faco buried in tho pillow,
near hor. Sho loft all tho necessary articles
for lho night and movod away with a noltso*
loss 3top,
Tho hours wont on slowly und silently.
Tho stars shono out in thoaky at last, whilo
tho flowers slept down in tho Bbniow, and
the littlo bird was gently rocked in his soft
oradlo. All was still in tho house whoro
children's feet had never pattered up nud
down, nor children's voices echoed.
Wlion morning, calm nnd sunny, brightened the quiet room it showed tho woman's
faco glorllled with a smile of absolute peace.
Who knows? Perhaps, indeed, her baby had
beon brought to hor.
Beside hor, whito nnd wan in the sunshine,
lay her faithful companion. Whotbor hearts
do break or not, I can not toll Heaven, ut

MONODY OF  A PEN.
The All'eetiiiB Plaint of a Castaway with
an Kvciilful History.
V iu but a worn-out fountain pon, my uso*
ful days aro o'er; so badly battered up um I
tlicy'vo slung mo on tho floor, begins tho
poot of tho Boston Transcript^ who in this
instance represents the worn-out fountain
pen. A writer's hand has wielded mo for
moro than half a yoar, and now thnt I can
mark no more, I'm lying sadly here. Tho
janitor may como, perhaps, aud olaim mo
for his own, or with tho othor waste and
truck perhaps I may ho thrown; and oi ttio
millions iu tho world, not ono in all tlio
men will ovor givo another thought lo thin
old fountain pen. Tho man who used to
writo with ine, boforo ho'd start to think,
would rudely twist mo all apart nod chuck
me full of ink, nnd thou I'd Bcratch along
and tell of somo bright youthful bride, who
wed tho only man sho loved, serene and
joyous-oyod; and of her dross ami of tho
buds that decked her flowing hair, aud of
tho words tho parson said about tlio "happy
pair." And then I'd glido along the page
und leavo tlio letters bold, to toll how somo
ono gathered in a wondrous pllo of gold,
and all tho othor littlo tilings thnt go to
mnko a day, and now lhat all my work is
dono I'm calmly alung away. I'vo
told ot births, I'vo .told of deaths,
of joy and dark despair; I'vo told
how vagrants aro run In, how
dudes oy. up thoir hair; I'vo quoted Latin,
French and Greok, bad English I havo
known, I'vo treated of tlio loud guffaw and
likewise of Uio groan. I'vo helped lo kick*
when duys woro hot, as wlion thoy wero too
cold; I'vo run In linos from chestnut poems
as whon "tho knights woro bold;" I've-,
told how in aomo lonoly gravo tlio clammy
earth was flung, I've shown how some at
ovo havo wept, how somo at ovo havo sung.
How Richard Roo got thirty days for going
on a drunk, how Paddy won n slugging
match because he'd lots of spunk; how
aomo ono, smiling, took a gun nnd aimed it
at n frlond, and In a jesting, joking way,
brought ono lifo to an cud. Of how tho
smiling servant lit tho lire with kerosene,
and swopped hor apron forarobo whoro
flrcB aro novor seen; of how somo stumbling
toot wont down toward tho burning bare,
whilo othors clambered up tho road that
loads toward tho stars. I'vo told of human
misery, of human griof as woll, of musty
flasks cf ancient wine, and buckets iu tho
woll; of gray-haired mun uud women old, of
happy girls and boys, of groans and smiles,
of prayers and thanks, of sorrows and. of
joys; and now my point is worn away, I'll
Bcribblo novor more, but lio alone, a broken
wreck, 111*011 tho offlco floor; and Uiobo
who'vo road of all I'vo lold, in all tho ranks
of men, will glvo but littlo credit to this

Tho marriage of Hon. Mr. Foster to
Mrs. Addio C. Chisholm, ex-president
of the Dominion W.O.T.U., ia tho
talk of Ottawa. A prominent divorce
lawyer of Ottawa hus been seen on the
subject, and Baid ; "This divorce in
ita bearing on tho liiatringo has, of
courso, been thoroughly discussed by a
number uf Ottawa lawyers to-day.
They are of opinion that tho divorce is
not worth the paper it is written on.
There aro soveral reasons for this.
First, there is no proof that Mr. Chisholm was over served with tho necessary papers; second, the divorce waa
granted for a trivial cause not recognized by the Canadian law; third, the
parties wero not subjects of the United
States, nnd ono of them, at least, only
went thoro temporarily to qualify fora
divorce; fourth, tho Canadian law recognizes divorces given by act of parliament only. It ia safe to Bay thore
in no valuo in the divorce. The divorced husband, howover, is not considered likely to como into Canada to
interfere with Mrs. Foster or subject
himself to arrost."

Itudy  1'oiiinl.
About0 o'clock this morning two
fisherman observed something with
the appearance uf a human body Hunting down stream just opposite Vianen's
warehouse. Ou pulling alongside it
was discovered to'bo tho body of a
huge sized man, r f heavy build, and
frum lho quantity of mud on tho hands
and face it Boomed to hnvo just risen
to lhe surface. Tho body was hauled
ashore and tliu coroner notified, who
ordered it tu bo removed to the city
lockup. A wagon was procured and
tho body placed ou it, and convoyed
through tho f-.trcets with not oven a
handkerchief thrown ovor the face.
Tho head and body woro terribly bloated and discolored, whieh made recognition almost impossible, but from all
appearances tho deceased had evidently been a man in tho prime of life.
Tho body was eluthed ln i. suit uf
rough tweed, well-worn, and on the
feet wore strong shoes with hob nails
on tho soles.
Mr, Coroner Ferris cmpanneled a
jury, which Bat at 2 o'clock, After
viowing tho body and receiving Dr.
Hull's report tho evidence of Constable
Smith was taken. Ho swore tho deceased was known ub Michael Hopkins,
a laborer, and who had been before
tho police magistrate on several occasions charged with d run likeness. The
jury then adjourned till this evening
when tho inquest will bo concluded.
Hopkins was a man strongly addicted
to drink, and waa iu tho habit of making a bed on one of tho wharves when
under the influence of liquor. It is
quite probablo that ho met his death
by falling from the wharf while intoxicated. The medical examination did
not reveal any wounds that would
load to tho Biipposition that Hopkins
mot with foul play. Tho body was
buried this afternoon.
Rov. O. M. Milligan, a prominent
Presbyterian minister, of Toronto, in
the course of a sermon last Sunday,
mado some reference to minister of li-
nauce Foster's marriago. Ho said that
it was a pity that men who professed
loyality to the British constitution
should whon it suits them, avail themselves uf the most objectionable features in tho American legislation.
