-water is ground water, derived by
seepage through soil of the rain or
snow   water.   Shallow  wells   are
usually placed quite close to the
houses or lactones which they are
to supply, and thus the soil in their
neighborhood is apt to become contaminated, and this contamination
is sooner or later carried by seepage
into  the well.   Fortuneately,  the
soil is  an excellent filtering and
cleansing agent, but it is only able
to dispose of a certain amount ol
contaminating material.   Such disposal takes time, so that if there  is
a particularly heavy rain, the contaminating matter may be carried 1
far into the earth below the pttrifiy-
ing layer, and thus soak unchanged
into the wells.   If a larger amount of
this contaimnating material finds its
way into the soil, the earth becomes
"Soured" and can no longer dispose
of or purify the waste, which tends
to  soak   into  and mix with the
ground water.   Some surface wells
are so constructed as to be mere

are not raised above the surrounding
earth, and hence receive tbe surface

from the corner of Westham street

Too Great a Risk.
In almost every neighborhood
someone has died trom an attack of
polic or cholera morbus, often before
medicine could be procured or a
physician summoned. A reliable
remedy lor these diseases should be
kept at hand. The risk is too great
for anyone to take. Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy has- undoubtedly saved the
lives of more people and releived
more pain and suffering than any
other medicine in use. It can always be depended upon.���For sale

The remainder of the speech wns arrested by a little band which waa laid lightly
upon his lips and which naturally met
tiie fate It deserved. There wus complete
silence in the shadow of the veranda, only
broken by her soft and hurried breathing,
���nd a slitrht stir as she nestled Into his
arms and was clasped for an instant to his
breast. Tho syce (native groom), who wns
crouching near beside his muster's waiting horse, raised his drowsy bead and
wondered if tbey had gone luto the house
again, liut Just then the farewell was
finally accomplished, and he listened curiously to their parting words.
I    "Good uight, Dick.   Be as early as you
I    "Good  night.    Of course I'll bo early
, It will be years before I see you again."
"Be euro you recognize me then I You

Hi' Master and servant turned at tbe gate
of tbe garden and looked back. She had
stepped ont of the shadow and lt was
' bright enough for them to seo overy detail
of her white muslin dress, ilouuced to tbe
waist, and to catch the gleam of her uncovered neck and arms. Dick Manners
even imagined that he could distinguish
the curve of her dark head outlined
���gainst the scarlet bow and soo tbe star-
It was in May, 1887, when a party of
Englishmen and women rode through the
streets of tho native city of Luc-know
They were going to visit the shops of the
famous gold and silver workers and were
accompanied, by nn escort of native police
for their guidance, and, though,, the ladies
of the partf sooffed at the idea, for their
protection' as well The bazaar at Luck-
now hns too bud a name* for any English-
nian to care to take his womankind there
without ��� show ol force. The street* are
very narrow and tho houses have, in
many eases, overhanging balconies to the
upper stories, creating a feeling of oppression even in riders, who are raised
above tho mosses of many shaded humanity with which the countless lanes and
alleys am filled
Edith Viilars was typically English in
appearance, having soft, fair huir and I
gray blue eyes, and with the latter sho
now gazed as If fascinated at tbe shrouded
figure-.*! which passed her in an endloBS
stream. They filled her soul with terror.
She li'lt thnt- each of those veils might
cover some awful tragedy, u tragedy whose
horror was increased tenfold by the seal of
silence and of secrecy, typified by that
shrouding veil.
Suddenly she turned to her companion,
��� gray haired mun, strong and upright, a
man in the prime of lifo und whose whole
appearance, from tbe tip of his pointed
gray mustache ta the tip of his. polished
riding boot, was et typical of the Kngllsh ,
officer as hers was of tbo -English girl.'
"Did you notice that woman, Colonel
Manners?" she asked.
"Which?" said he, gazing at the mnn- ;
bers by whloh they were surrounded with
I ��� naturally bewildered expression.
".lust on ahead. There now, look���tbe
one with tbe pretty blue���surry, do you
call it?V
|    "I aee the woman, or rather tbe figure,
I you mean.    But what is there extraordinary about her?"
'     "Only her feet.    They are white���quite
; white.    Isn't ib funny?"
"Oh, nol They often look white with
the dust of the road, and besides some of
them are fair. Perhaps that partieulur
woman is ��iii li woman���a Kashmiri. They
are sometimes us fair as���no, uot you, but
many F.nglish girls." and he glanced admiringly at her dazzling complexion.
liut her remark hud evident ly impressed
liim, and tor some time he, too, watched
the passing women, gazing always at their
tout.    And lt seemed to him there were
many  white���horribly   white.      Strange
stories came to his remembrance, stories
which were whispered Just ufter the mutiny, thut all the missing English women
and  girls had not been  killed.     Tbat
thought had nearly maddened him once. |
B����n  now  he shuddered and saw  with
thankfulness ���lat they had arrived at the .
Chunk, tho pnrt of  the  bazaar where the
I best goldsmiths' sho(.s are situated  uud
' remarkable for  the  beautiful   carving of .
tho wooden balconies which overhung the
porcheswacre tho work is carried on.  The
travelers were loud  in their  praises and
noiuparieons With evory picturesque town
lu  Europe, giving, however, as  they felt
correct, the preference to this city of   "the
gorgeous east."
The principal police officer soon rushed
them into oue of the largest shops, a low
ceiled room with a mud floor, while he
whispored to Colonel Manners that the
owner was the biggest rascal in the whole
bazaar, but also the host worker, and that
tbe English "memsnhilw" would see gome
wonderful things. Colonel Manners, who
bad often performed the duty of showman
during his stay In Lucknow, knew exactly
what to explain and waited expectantly
for the inevitable exclamations of astonishment over the flro���a few pieces of glowing chnrooal in a broken earthenware pot,
tho very primitive bellows, worked by an
almost naked, shining little boy, and the
tew rough and simple tools.
The proprietor was a st/ut man. greasy I
and repulsive  looking, and with an air j
which  made Colonel  Manners look even i
sterner thun  his wont.    His words were j
sharp as he bade the man show his good! ,
as quickly as possible. The ladies thought
ull  natives  alike   and   noticed   nothing
wrong with the man's leer and sly glance*
or the way in which he directed all his remarks and compliments to the young girl
They watched him make a few silver bungles und bought some curious ornaments
whieh wero lying about the shop, bnt Mrs.
Villuis hud set her heart upon  buying a
certain  kind of nose ring, and there was
not one to be seen.   When the silver worker understood  her wish, be Vscnt to the
bock of the room, where, In the shadow,  j
Colonel   Manners had  seen  a crouching ;
figure, and saying a few words in a low, |
harsh tone he returned to hlg customer* j
with a particularly fine nose ring, incruet- I
ed with  turquoises, in  his hand.   Mrs
Vlllars was delighted, and while she conducted her bargaining v. itli the aid of the
policeman  her daughter wandered to tho
{ back of the shop.
1     She was astonished to find a woman |
seated there, and more, thut she were the
identical sari whloh h.-.d attracted her at- I
tentioii  on  the   rond     Instinctively  she
looked down to see the woman's feet, but >
the whole form was shrouded in the usual
way, nothing was visible but the face, and
upon that tho girl gazed with a growing '
horror ou her own.   lt was the face of an
old  woman;  dark  hair was parted and
brought low Over tho forehead; thero was
no color in thu sallow cheeks, and tlie eye*
glittered uut of bony hollows.   They were
wonderful eyes, the only remaining trace
in tlint countenance of u long pust beauty,
but libw they wero awful, too, for misery
and humiliation, rage und despair, glared
out of  their brown depths as the English

With a deep drawn sigh Colonel Manners passed out and looked up, half unconsciously, to tho dark blue sky above.

Uut, even as he spoke, he threw off the
; depression caused   by the  ctharconl I limes
or that uncomfortable looking old woman
in tho comer und turned to look proudly
at the tall, beautiful, fair haired girl who
wus already, surely, his own.
Miss  Viilars  hud   not answered  him
She   stood hesitating on  the  threshold,
shading her eyes from the duzzllng glare
before hor, thinking of the bluckness, th-s
wretchedness,   behind her.     She   felt   it
would be long beforo she forgot that face;

Sho had thrown buck her veil as if she
needed air, and tho masses of her dark,
fine, waving hair were revealed. .Not native hair. The very way it grew shuwed
that. When the shade of the sun was gone,
her features were visible, and every curve
of lips, nostrils, eyelids and throat cried
out her English blood. Within her breast
a torrent of misery wa* unsealed. It waa
years since she had thought, consciously
thought, as she was thinking now
but for 30 years she had not heard the
voice she had  heard today, had not seen
the face upon which her eyes had hungrily
rested only a few moments ago, had not
dared, for shame and agony, to admit the
thought of him into her heart, and now-
All  thut she had  borne of humiliation,

1 her without a spark of  recognition in his
eyes, with only a horror, wliich wus por-
hnps the mere reflection of that within her
.**ho closed her eye*. It was a summer
night. She stood in ��� stirlit garden. The
���cent of clmmpuk blossom was heavy on
the air, and a voice was speaking from
very fuY awny, "It will be years before I
see you aguln."
but belorethe memorj of the past could
drive ber tortured soul to madness she was
rooulled suddenly to the present by another voice:
"Am I to keep thee ln Idleness all thy

It was the voice of bor master, and

hud never failed to do through ull the long

drawing the sari closely round her once
more, she passed obediently to the buck of
