On Friday morning of last week the
town was startled with the news that
the wife and five year old child of Mr.
Jackson bad been drowned in the
Columbia river It seems that the
child wus playing on the bank of the
river when be tell iu, and the mother
in her efforts to rescue tbe child also
fell iu. i\s it happened there wns no
one near at the time except the seven
year obi son of Mr. Jackson, who ran
to the saw mill where his father is
employed ami told him what had happened. Before the scene of Hie accident could be reached however the two
unfortunates had been added to the list
of victims of the Columbia. The body
of the child was soon found but notwithstanding that every possible effort
has heen made to recover tbe body of
Mrs. Jackson, nothing has so far been
seen of it. Tlie body of the child was
interred in tbe cemeterv on Saturday
evening. Messrs. H. Watson, J, McNeill, I). Mi-Rie, and A. Samuels, acting ns tuill bearers and Rev. Archdeacon McKay otlitri,iting at the grave.

Jackson who has only been in our
midst a very short time, Through the
effort-, ot Mr. H. L. Cummins a purse

the two motherless children, one of
whom is only two years of age.

The Golden Eia Publishing Compani/.       I
silver market has been slight so far,
although ou the Stock Excbance tho
silver |iriceis expected to rise eventual-
ily on the streugtii of China and Japan's demand for ships and war
material   f-jpm   Europe   and America.
i Probably exchange   will also rise, as a
I loan might be raised iu Loudon and
the proceeds be used in buying and
sending out  silver.      It   has  been re-
1 marked in the last few davs, that
China has bought considerable silver
for delivery at the end of the year.
Till:   E.YSTl'jll.N   SITUATION.
Loudon, Aug.- 11.-The British
dailies continue to publish vehement
denunciations of Japan. Every repulse of the Japanese in Coi-ea is
welcomed editorially as would bo a
triumph of British arms, and every
Japanese success evokes a storm of
disapproval ami upi-eitls to interim-
tion..I law. The opinions of the press
are not reflected by the British public.
Tiie average Englishman is either unpin tisuii, or hopes that Japan will
humble China iu the present war.
Among diplomats and others who
speak with authority ou Oriental
affairs, however, there is a feeling of
hostility nud apprehension toward
Japan. Willi few excplions the men
who have lived long at eastern courts,
or travelled much in Asiatic countries,
while imbued with no love for China,
express the belief that Japan's success
in the present struggle would be bound
to lend to trouble betw eu England
atul Russia and the Governments
views are similar. Iu official circles,
the impression is thut the expulsion of
the Chinese fro.u Corea would be fol-
loiveI speedily by the appearance of a
Russian tleet in Coreiiu waters and
perhaps of Russian soldiers ou Coram
soil. Russia would not allow Japan
to make herself at home in the peninsula. She has regarded herself too
long us the natural heir lo Corea. At
present she is anxious to see the statu
quo maintained, and would be greatly
displeased with any attempt of China
or Japan to take possession of tInland.
Despite the groat cost of the defences
at V'liidivostock, and the skillfulness
of the engineers engaged in the work
that port is not a satisfactory naval
station. The climate is harsh and
wearing and the roadstead is blocked
with ice during the cold season. Russia knows that only a little I ml her
south on the Coreuu coast, there aro
several harbors exactly suited for her
purpose Port L.i/.arcff. on Brighton's
Bay is ouo of them. Russia has had
her eyes ou it for years. Few Russian
officers doubt that Port Luziin-ff would
bo a strong base of naval operation*- iu
the Pacific. It would ho of immense
service to Russia iu n war with England, who, with such n position in the
hands of the enemy, wjuld Iio obliged
cither to send a huge part of her navy
lo Asiatic waters, or to leave India,
Australia and the Straits Settlements
open to Russia's naval attack.
In this situation lies the reason of
England's present anxiety and enmity
to the Japanese cause. She is must
eager to prevent Japan from giving
Russia au excuse for interference. She
realized that Russia might justify
such interference unite plausible inasmuch us nobody nt Sc. Petersburg luul

tho war. The bitterest iinti-Jiipiinese

All), leaning her plump, mm fort-able
alrmivs on tbe table, Airs. Woilderuurii
went on.
"ien yeurs age, we hnd the most successful summer season that ever we
knew: un iu the Ciitskills the houses
Wt.-rt- crowded���ami some of the young
���rent lenien tourists actually camped out
in tint Iniiii o' nights. And Barbara
was here helping me���the Rose of Cuts-
kills, one of my young gentlemen
guests called her, ami somehow it grow
into u hy-word. And, if coaxing anil
fluttering could turn a girl's head. Bar-
burn's was iu u fair way to be turned.
Not that I license her of tliriiiig or
carrying on���timt wasn't Barbara's ivuv
���she just went qniniiy about her business and never said nothing to nobody.
But I could see that she liked Mr. Warden ; and Sir. Warden was jnst the one
of the whole trilie and gem-ration of'em
that I could wish she hadn't liked. You
see, ina'iiui. there's a difference in pen-
Kle, nml for all he made such u fuss over
er, 1 could see he was as cold usu stone
and ns hard as adamant.
"Tilings went along smoothly, however, until Miss Arkwright came up
from New York���Miss Arkwright. with
her trailing silk dresses uud diamond
rings ami hair built up in curls and
pull's anil frizzes. Some folks like that
style; I  don't.   But Miss, Arkwright
wns very nch and very fashionable, anil
the minute I saw her and Mr. Warden
together, I knew that poor Burburu's
reign wus over.
" 'The idea of "-nking such a commotion over a mere servnnt!' says Mi��s
Arkwright. 'To bo sure she's pretty,
but so is a chinn doll!'
" 'I beg your pardon. Miss Arkwright.'
snys I, 'lint Barbara is not a servant.

stuck up iu the uir line a queen's.
"ihe very next weeit she asked Barbara lo go up to the stone tower with
her. Barbara didn't want to go, but
Miss Arkwright had a domineering wny
with her, and the girl could hardly refuse.
" 'There's a picnic going up there tomorrow,' says Barbara.
" 'I know it,' nays Miss Arkwright,
"but I don't want to see the place in a
crowd. And you've nothing e.sc to Uo,
burbiirn Dale.
",So Barbara went, nil in a new whito
dross with blue ribbons, for I think she
naif hoped to see Mr. Warden up tliere,
iieing i s ho -pent a deal of time sketching around the stone tower. He was uu
arti-1 by profession, was Mr. Warden.
"Bnt he wasn't there on this pnrtit-u-

"She was -titt-'n-r on the doorstep of

narrow easement, so the sun shouldn't
touch her roseleuf complexion, when
Barbar.. started up.
" 'Uow dare you talk bo to mo?' says
she. 'What right have you to insult

'And���listen. Dnv'-iri Dnlo���lv* returns

'No. Miss Arlrwriglit. yon urn not. Tbo

"And Bui-burn elo..od tiio lingo oak

rusted fastenings with a strength that
was almost superhuman.
" 'Girl,' shrieked the hefrefs, 'how
dare you serve me i-neh u trick ns this?
Open the door nt once!'
" 'Not until I have bidden Percy Warden- ndieii,' snid Barbara, with a mocking laugh. Ami away she sped down
the heights, h-edlt-ss of Miss Arkwrigiit's
cries and entreaties.
" You may wonder, ma'am, how I
know all this. B irbnra hei-selt tobl me
���told me after the mists clouded her
pour Drain forever���and she told it in
such a wny that I could fairly hear und
see everything for myself.
"But both girls hud lingered longer

any idea of. Before Barbara could reach
tie little depot���the cars were a new
thing then in our p-irt of the country���
tiie train was moving off, and Percy
Warden's face nt ono of tho windows
wns all she could see. In her blind
haste, Barbara's foot caught in the steel
rnil. the iron row-catcher filing her on
one side and she fell with her 1'oriie.itl
against the edge of the freight platform.
All the depot hands supposed "sue was
killed: but she w isn't.
"They carried iier buck to the hotel���
carrieii ber insensible ami bleeding from
the temples. An 1 that night one of
those tempests of rain and storm set in
that we sometimes nave in Mid-August
���a tempest that lasted three days. No
one cuilid stir out. and nil liiut time Bur-
bam lay ut liuut-i's dour, unconscious
and silent.
"But in tlie thunder and lightning
and ill iring ruin of the third night sense
uud reason came back to poor Barbara,
and she started up among her pillows.
"���Where in Miss Arkwright?' said
" 'Slio's not nt tho hotel, dear," snys I.
soothingly. 'And Wedtierbiirii thinks
bIio must have made up her mind ut the
last minute to go down to New York
with Mr. Wardeii.' .
" 'I know whore sho is.' said Barbara,
with u shudder. 'She is up at tho Powder House.'
"We thought she was dreaming, until
she told ns all.
" 'Three days nnd three nights I' sh��

"Two forty?" ipieeried the customer.
"Yes, sir." replied the urbane

"All right, it's a ho.-'replied tho
piii'i'liuser, adding, "anything in the

" Yes. Sill," broke In Charles, with
nil the accent on the courteous appnla-
